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.

RECYCLING IN SUWANNEE


No deception intended, says Sikes


But public works director admits
set-up at refuse sites is misleading

County

attorney

won't get

a raise
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

Suwannee County's attor-
ney, Hal Airth, was denied a
pay raise Tuesday night by
commissioners after a lengthy
and sometimes contentious de-
bate.
Airth sought an increase
from $100 an hour to $125 an
hour and a jump in his retainer
from $18,000 to $20,000 after
he and Perry attorney William
Blue were interviewed for the
post. Commissioners voted in
September to request qualifi-
cations for all legal, surveying
and engineering work for
which the county contracts.

SEE ATTORNEY, PAGE 10A


that recent concerns over the
county's recycling program
have led to a "flurry of misin-
formation."
Jerry Sikes told county com-
missioners that his office had
received a "lot of phone calls


about this ... and ... some im-
plied that we were intentionally
deceiving people and that cer-
tainly hasn't been the case."
Under questioning at the
meeting by this reporter, how-
ever, Sikes conceded that the
set-up at county refuse sites is
misleading at best.
A Feb. 5 article in the Suwan-
nee Democrat reported that


Suwannee High students' ef-
forts to recycle certain materi-
als failed, as county workers
dumped the materials in the
landfill instead. The students,
members of the SHS Environ-
mental Club, had deposited the
items in recycling bins labeled
"paper" and "plastic."

Suwannee High School's
Environmental Club held a
meeting Wednesday morning
to discuss the ongoing contro-
versy over recycling here that
began some weeks back,
when the students learned that
recyclables they had been col-

into the landfill instead. (See

Local engineer among



5 in nation chosen



for achievements


AI


S ive Oak resident Kevin Wright, of
| the Suwannee River Water
.Management District, is one of 16
young engineers across the nation
nominated by the American Society of
Agricultural and Biological Engineers for
the National Engineers Week Foundation
New Faces of Engineering 2010. Of that
group, Wright was among five selected to
represent their profession as top engineers.
The New Faces of Engineering program
highlights the interesting and unique work
of young engineers and the resulting impact
on society. Young engineers two to five
years out of school are the focus of the
program.
Wright was hired by the District in 2006
to review environmental resource permits,
which consider stormwater runoff quality
and flooding potential. He later became the
project coordinator for the District's efforts
with the Federal Emergency Management
Agency Map Modernization Program,
managing a budget of more than $4.2
million. While working with FEMA, Wright
helped develop several Web site
applications, enabling residents to view and
print flood zone maps, determine flood
elevations and answer common questions
about the National Flood Insurance
Program.


Wright's current duties include working
on water supply planning in order to plan
for future water supplies and assisting
with the formation of the Nature
Coast Regional Water Authority,
which will connect four
municipalities and two counties
with drinking water and
wastewater.
A member of ASABE since
2004, Wright holds a bachelor's
degree in agricultural and
biological engineering from the
University of Florida, where he is
pursuing a master's of
engineering and where as an
undergraduate he served as
president of the ASABE student
chapter.
"It is an honor to be nominated
for the New Faces of Engineering
program, considering the high
caliber of agricultural and
biological engineers in the
nation," Wright said. "I would
like to thank the District for
supporting my continued education and
allowing my diverse workload."
Wright said he encourages any student
interested in engineering to visit
www.DiscoverEngineering.org.


Kevin Wright


"Our nation needs young engineers to advancement of engineering applicable to
help solve the problems our country will agricultural, food and biological systems.
face in the future," he said. Founded in 1907 and headquartered in St.
The ASABE is an educational and Joseph, Mich., ASABE comprises 9,000
scientific organization dedicated to the members in more than 100 countries.

EXTENSION UPDATE




Cold snap took its toll on local ag operations


By Elena Toro
Suwannee County
Extension


This week I would like
to share with you some of
the challenges our farmers
have faced recently. As a
consumer, I understand it
is hard to grasp all the
hard work our farmers do
to bring food to our tables.
However, as someone who
knows the many of the


struggles farmers face, I
feel the responsibility to
share with you this short
overview of some of the
happenings in the fields
this winter.
Poultry operations
In the last few weeks we
have experienced severe
weather in our area, which
has caused an increase in
heating costs for our poul-
try growers and green-
house operators. Based on
conversations with several
poultry growers, heating
costs doubled this season
due in part to increased
consumption and higher
gas prices. Greenhouse
operators have also suf-
fered the same problem; it
is proving challenging to
grow a profitable crop this
season.
Livestock


Livestock consume
more hay and feed during
cold weather in order to
meet their maintenance re-
quirements. As a result,
feeding costs have in-
creased significantly for
livestock producers this
winter. On the other hand,
cool season grasses for
grazing have not grown
much due to the severe
cold and reduced sunlight.
The rain is always wel-
come but when combined
with cloudy weather it
slows down the grass
growth. An average 1,000-
pound cow will eat ap-
proximately 30 pounds of
good quality hay every
day. However, when hay is
low quality cows will eat
more and may still loose
wait as they cannot get all
the nutrients they need.


MORE HELP FOR HAITI
The Rev. Tommy Jefferson presents checks to Pastor Frank Davis of Melody Christian Cen-
ter for $1,675 on behalf of the Suwannee County Ministerial Alliance. President Alex Foun-
tain and the Rev. Floyd Jones thank the entire community for the Feb. 10 Haiti Relief Pro-
gram held at African Baptist Church. Funds will be used to provide food, medicine and oth-
er items as well as to rebuild churches in Haiti. Visit rebuildhaitionline.com for more in-
formation. You may drop off items for Haiti at Melody Christian Center's reception bin.

This is also a busy time
for cattle operations. Cows
are calving this time of the
year, and cattle producers
are constantly checking
cows and calves regard-
less of the weather. Con-
trary to popular belief,
cows enjoy cold weather
but do not like to standing
in muddy areas and eating
low quality grass and feed.
Field crops
Every year there is a
significant acreage planted
with cool season forages
and small grains to be har-
vested for seed in our
area. These crops will suf-
fer at least a 30 percent
yield reduction when har-
vested. Most of the vari-
eties grown, do not toler-
ate extreme cold tempera-
tures for lengthy periods
of time. In addition, farm-


ers have to wait to fertilize
these crops to prevent the
nutrients from leaching as
part of the Best Manage-
ment Practices also known
as BMPs, but this means
the plants are not getting
the nutrients on a timely
manner this season.
Fruit trees
Structural damage to the
trees will not be seen until
growth resumes later in
the season, watch for bark
splitting in trees. Be care-
ful when pruning fruit
trees this winter; assess
any damage before heavy
pruning.

mational. If I can be of

Recycling


and more
Public Works Director Jerry Sikes worried
at Tuesday's county commission meeting that
folks thought the disposal of recyclables at
county refuse sites was intentional a blatant
attempt at deceit on the part of county offi-
cials.
We've seen no evidence to suggest such a
thing. Let's chalk it all up to human error in-
stead.
Having said that, it's imperative we address
the immediate problem make sure folks
know that items deposited in county recy-
cling bins might just end up in the landfill in-
stead then address the broader question be-
yond.
Hamilton County, with a population barely
a third of Suwannee's, successfully recycles,
we're told. Why can't we?
We'll be exploring the matter in some
depth in the coming weeks.
*0O
Suwannee County's always been a kind-
hearted place, and local folks are proving it
once again, judging by their response to the
recent hardship in Franklin County. As Car-
nell Hawthorne Jr. reports on today's front
page, oyster fishing the area's economic
mainstay has come to a halt as a result of
contamination of coastal waters. Suwannee
residents are only too glad to help.
Just as they've given selflessly to Haiti in
recent weeks.
Disaster fatigue? It hasn't set in yet, even
with our own troubles, which include a 10.9
percent county unemployment rate. Good
job, everybody.

Congratulations to local civic and educa-
tional leaders who've been recognized of

to let it out. You can let everyone know how you feel -
as long as you express yourself in a respectful way.

Everytime I read about this "business park" planned
by the county commissioners (AKA, the 5 kings of
Suwannee County) I turn completely irate. Is there any
actual planned benefit of this thing other than lining the
current land owner's pocket with "free" money? They
don't even have any buyers/businesses lined up to use
it, do they?! What an asinine way to spend tax payer
money. The commission has had so many opportunities
in the past years for businesses and industry in this
county. Every time there is a hint of interest, they douse
it with cold water and crucify the people that wanted to
do it. For an area that prides itself on being of conserv-
ative values, I've never seen a place so anti free-enter-
prise. Their ignorance of economics is just stunning.
Surprise, surprise a while back when Pilgrims Pride
was cutting jobs and they were screaming "Oh no,
we've become too reliant on one industry in the area!".
Earth to the illiterate: THERE'S NEVER BEEN ANY
OTHER INDUSTRY THANKS TO YOU, AND
PROBABLY NEVER WILL BE!
I was certainly disappointed to read in a recent edito-
rial that time was running out for the Wet-Dry vote on
the ballot this year. Why hasn't the Chamber of Com-
merce made sure that this issue is on the ballot? Come
on, Chamber, it is time for you to realize the economic
importance of this issue.
I just wanted to add some info to the recycling posts
of last week. Many municipalities have discovered that
recycling and revenue can go together if managed
properly. The City of Phoenix posted a 1.4 million dol-
lar profit for their recycling program with an estimated
2.1 million dollar additional savings related to de-

creased landfill space and other disposal costs that were
avoided. One municipality earned $21,000 for each
900,000 pounds of trash recycled. It is not only a scan-
dal that the county dumps our separated recyclables
into the landfill, but also a shame that we lose the rev-
enue it could bring!
MEN
Does anyone really think our city services are better
being outsourced. The City outsourced the police de-
partment and it didn't work. The School outsourced the
Custodial work and it didn't work. Is city hall just to
lazy to run the garbage, sewer and water or to sorry.
Only in Suwannee County... our new prison sign has
a motto, "we never walk alone," Ha, I hope not, really,
what does that mean? For years people have petitioned
to get a prison here, the reason? jobs and jobs for our
children. Personally, I hope my children will overcome
our local school system and go to college and prosper
beyond our county. I don't want a prison in my back-
yard and I question anyone's common sense that does.
And when will we see the supposed 800 jobs the prison
creates? From what I have observed, they should only
hire a dozen, physical fitness trainers that is. Finally, to
the Democrat, in your opening statement in Rant and
Rave, you rave about our ability to access your hotline
24/7, maybe you should add the phone number to your
rave.
The phone number 386-208-8314 appears follow-
ing each week's Rants. Editor
I hear all the controversy about our city outsourcing
public works. Spin it any which way you want but my
utility bill goes up and up and up. I can't help but think
it is to pay more for public works.
Okay, I just wanted to comment on this recycling of
our newspaper. I have saved newspapers and recycling
since we moved here and since they've had the new
dumpster sites. If we got a $1 per 1,000 pounds for it, it
would be a gain. Landfill costs us per ton and I'm sure
that makes a double loss for the county, loss of income
and cost of disposing of it. The paper itself, I won't re-
cycle it anymore until I see that the county is recycling
it and taking it to the market. If you can get this paper

PROJECT: R.E.A.C.CH.



Spreading the Word of God abroad
By Joyce Marie Taylor
Correspondent
Some people don't
discover their true mis-
sion in life until it is too
late to do anything
about it. How wonder-
ful it must feel to know
at an early age what you
are destined to do with
your life.
For Krista and Scott
Fletcher, the decision
was easy. Being devot-
ed Christians and wish-
ing to spread the Word
of God to those in other
countries who have nev-
er heard the Gospel be-
fore, joining Project
R.E.A.C.CH. was the
natural choice for them
in the year 2000.
Project R.E.A.C.CH.
has been ministering in
Eastern Asia for years.
Their Purpose Statement
says it all: "To Reach &
Restore Humanity
through the Power of
Christ's Love, Word &
Anointing." They are an
"Asian-based ministry
that focuses on fulfilling
Christ's Commission in
Eastern Asia."

Sweetheart ride

Annual Suwannee Sweetheart cycling weekend
draws folks to White Springs


Suwannee Bicycle Association headquarters in White Springs.


Returning to White Springs from Live Oak on CR 136.

By Joyce Marie Taylor

JASPER For bicycling
enthusiasts it was a
sweetheart of a deal
celebrating Valentine's
weekend in historic White
Springs, even with the
chilly weather. This two-
day riding event included
fully stocked rest stops
along scenic bike routes in
and around the city. All
age groups participated,
even folks in their 60s, 70s
and 80s. Quite a few of
them have been coming
to this event for years.
For the last 21 years,
White Springs has served
as headquarters for the
Suwannee Bicycle
Association, a non-profit
organization founded by
Lys Burden in 1989. The
SBA is dedicated to
environmental
awareness, as well as
family fitness for people
in the Suwannee River
region. They are located
half a block north of the


Adams Country Store,
where US 41 intersects
with CR 136.
Their mission is to offer
in-depth understanding
and appreciation of
natural ecosystems. To do
this, they sponsor
bicycling, canoeing,
kayaking, hiking,
snorkeling and spring-
hopping events in the
Suwannee Valley Region,
as well as publishing and
distributing educational
brochures and
pamphlets.
After Saturday's warm-
up ride and evening
potluck dinner, the real
action began on
Valentine's Sunday at 7
a.m. with a continental


breakfast. Then, at 8 a.m.
the "sweetheart cyclists"
started their journeys
with choices of 25, 52, 62
and 100 mile rides. Some
of them pedaled into Live
Oak to enjoy lunch at the
Dixie Grill or Grace
Manor, but those who
preferred a shorter route
only went as far as the
Whistlestop Coffee &
Deli in Wellborn.
According to some folks,
they have the best freshly
baked scones in town.
Sunday evening, after an
exhilarating bike ride, the
cyclists enjoyed a buffet
dinner at SBA
headquarters.
Current SBA
membership includes


people from Florida,
Georgia, Indiana,
Michigan, Washington
and Vermont.
"For me it's kind of like
a family reunion with my
snowbird cycling
friends," said event
coordinator Jeannie
Hargrave.
If you missed this ride,
don't worry. The SBA's
next cycling event, the
Spring Pedal and Paddle
Festival, is coming up
April 30 through May 2.

For more information

via e-mail at
BiknJeanne@aol.com or

Attorney won't get a raise


Continued From Page 1A

The first being county at-
torney, the post currently
filled by Airth.
"I probably ought to be
quiet," Airth told commis-
sioners when questioned.
"I was asked what I wanted
and I answered. You asked
Mr. Blue and he answered
and you ranked me high-
est."
Airth noted he didn't like
negotiating his salary dur-
ing the commission meet-
ing.
"You interviewed the
county coordinator and
didn't ask him about his
salary in an open meeting,"
said Airth. "This is about
the third time this is hap-
pened to me and it's getting
a little bit old."
Chairman Wesley Wain-
wright, who spearheaded
going out for qualifica-
tions, said he felt Blue was
the better choice. He was
not present, however, when
the board ranked Airth and
Blue several weeks ago.
Airth and Blue were the
only two applicants.
"We had an individual
that was ranked second that
was offered to the job for
less money and his exper-
tise ... was better than Mr.
Airth's," said Wainwright.
"I would go along with
keeping Mr. Airth at one-
hundred dollars an hour
and as the retainer fee, I
don't agree, because we
have one that won't charge
one."
In his application, Blue


said he would not charge a
retainer fee, only $100 an
hour.
"We got a certain rate
we're willing to pay and
it's up to Mr. Airth to ac-
cept it or not," Wainwright
continued.
Commissioner Ivie
Fowler said it would sim-
ply not be fair if the county
attorney got a raise when
other county employees
were left out.
"County employees
could not even get a raise
last year and I'm looking at
a 36 percent increase here,"
said Fowler.
Actually, Airth sought a
25 percent hourly rate in-
crease and a 11 percent re-
tainer fee increase.
"If I can't pay the full-
time employees a raise, I
don't feel that a part time
should get one," he added.
Fowler mentioned that
commissioner Douglas
Udell's quote in a previous
Suwannee Democrat arti-
cle that Airth deserves a
raise because county com-
missioners receive one was
not warranted. Fowler said
he received raises totaling
only 2.3 percent over the
past three years.
Udell said Airth is enti-
tled to a raise just like the
others on the board.
"Whenever the commis-
sioners salary increases
with the governor's recom-
mendation, that has not
happened with Mr. Airth,"
said Udell.
"There's no browbeating
on me about my statement


(in the Democrat) because
it was true," said Udell.
Udell said Airth should
not be compared to other
county employees because
of his stature.
"I don't see the relevance
to these employees. They
don't have his experience,"
he said.
Udell said Airth should
keep his job and it shows
through the ranking
process.
"What I'm looking at is
the integrity of the applica-
tions and the integrity of
the ranking system," said
Udell.
Wainwright looked over
the ranking sheets while
Udell spoke and said he
disagreed with how Udell
scored Airth and Blue.
"Anytime you do a rank-
ing system comparable to
poker, I'll beat you," said
Udell. "Now don't get an-
gry when you get beat on
the ranking system (he told
Wainwright). I don't intend
to lose on something I can
win. So don't question my
integrity."
Wainwright said he nev-
er questioned his integrity.
"It showed it on the score
sheet," he told Udell.
Jesse Caruthers then
turned his attention to
Airth.
"Bottom line here is
what's three votes going to
get you," he told the coun-
ty attorney.
"I already know, Mr.
Caruthers," said Udell.
"Then you better fold,"
Caruthers responded.


Airth negotiated with
commissioners and said he
would leave the retainer
fee where it is, but still
wanted the hourly increase
and added a provision that
if his contract is canceled
before the end of the an-
niversary date, he would
receive a six months sever-
ance package. If approved
his new contract could start
March 1.
"That sounds fair to me,"
Billy Maxwell said.
Wainwright disagreed.
"I am still set on my pro-
posal of one-hundred dol-
lars an hour," he said.
"That's the most I'd do is
what we're already pay-
ing."
Live Oak native Franz
Metz put the issue in per-
spective for the commis-
sioners.
"Unfortunately you're
voting for our money and
I'm tired of it," he said. "If
you guys have to go to Per-
ry, that's not my problem
right now. If it's coming
out of your pocket you
might think differently
about this. You got two
lawyers to do the same job,
get the lowest one."
Caruthers eventually
moved to keep Airth's pay
and retainer the same, but
added the six-month sever-
ance provision. It was sec-
onded by Fowler. It was
approved 4-1 with Wain-
wright dissenting.
Airth said he would in-
form the board of his deci-
sion to either accept or
deny the proposal.

cealment of the fire.
"The worst fire you
could possibly have is an
overhead concealed space
fire," he said.
That's exactly what fire-
fighters were faced with
Thursday morning.
All paid and volunteer
county fire units were
called to the scene.
In total between 40-60
fighters were headed to the
fire with 60,000 gallons of
water to fight the blaze.


"It's at times like this
when the volunteer fire-
fighters really step up and
come out of the wood-
work," Conner said.
The chicken house's
owner declined to com-
ment, but stood speaking
with a Pilgrim's Pride rep-
resentative.
"It wasn't a fast moving
fire, but it was fully in-
volved," Conner said.
The cause of the fire was
not readily known. Fire
crews waited for state fire
marshals to arrive.


No deception


intended, says Sikes


Continued From Page 1A

"Jerry, how long have
the igloos (recycling bins)
been at the collection
sites?" the reporter asked
Sikes.
"Quite a few years,"
Sikes responded.
"Is there a sign up at any
of the collection sites say-
ing that your stuff may or
may not be recycled?" the
reporter asked.
"No, not right now," said
Sikes.
"But when people put
stuff in there they're as-
suming it's being recy-
cled," the reporter contin-
ued.
Sikes conceded that if
someone deposits items in
a recycling bin, "they
should expect that it will
be recycled and probably
that's a failure on our part,
or I'll say on my part that
we have left those out
there. If we need to re-
move them and remove the
perception that we're try-
ing to recycle right now,


until we get a more viable
program together, it's
probably what I think we
need to do then that way
there is no misinformation
or perception about it."
Commissioner Ivie
Fowler agreed that a lot of
people were under the
false assumption the coun-
ty was recycling.
"A lot of people don't
know you can't get rid of
it, they don't know what it
cost to get rid of it," said
Fowler. "When you start
saying well how much will
I have to add to your taxes,
they usually don't want to
do it."
Still, Sikes said some-
thing needs to done.
"And I know it dampens
the public interest in recy-
cling," said Sikes.
He said he would gather
more information on the
issue, as well as maybe
looking at neighboring
counties in a joint recy-
cling effort, and report
back to the board at a later
time.

know whether there is or is
not a recycling program in
Suwannee. First, he said,
the confusion surrounding
the recycling igloos at
county collection sites
should be cleared up.
"There's no sign that
says don't recycle or don't
do this or that," he noted.
As for what to do next,
he said looking at other
counties would be a start.
"What about the next
county," he asked. "They
probably do recycle, or
they've got the same prob-
lems that Suwannee has.
But we need to look."
Club sponsor and SHS
teacher Amy Hendry, who
lives in Hamilton County,
said she was told by
Hamilton County's Solid
Waste Department Direc-
tor and Recycling Coordi-
nator Dale Jackson that
Hamilton does have a re-
cycling program, funded
in part by grants and aided
by inmate labor. The
county reportedly makes
anywhere from $18,000 to
$78,000 a year in profit.
"I think that's pretty im-
pressive for a small coun-
ty," said Hendry.
The Democrat con-
firmed that Hamilton
County recycles.
"We're already sending
(recyclables) to (a landfill


in) Georgia anyway, why
can't we send it to Hamil-
ton to be recycled," club
member Rhett Butler
asked.
Hendry asked Snyder
what the club needs to do
next.
"You got to gather in-
formation because we
don't want to beat up the
county," he said.
He told club members
they need to continue to
gather signatures on a pe-
tition calling on the coun-
ty to recycle, and spread
word of their cause far and
wide.
"Hopefully you'll have
a partner in DEP, other
counties and anybody who
collects recyclables," said
Snyder.
Student Victoria Benson
said talks need to begin at
the county level to move
the county closer to recy-
cling.
"I think it would be
good if we can improve it
because right now we're
not getting real far," she
said.
Club President Frank
McCrary shared similar
sentiments.
"It's something that
needs to be done and can-
not be forgotten, the soon-
er the better," he said.
"The (members) have all
given everything they've
got, they're working

Edward Jones ranked


No. 2 on Fortune's 'Best


Companies to Work For' list


The financial-services
firm Edward Jones, which
has branch offices that
serve the Suwannee
County area, ranked No. 2
on FORTUNE magazine's
"100 Best Companies to
Work For 2010" list in its
11th year on the
prestigious list. Edward
Jones also ranked No. 1
for large-sized companies.
Edward Jones' 11
FORTUNE rankings also
include top 10 finishes for
eight years and
consecutive No. 1 rankings
in 2002 and 2003. This is
the firm's second
consecutive year at No. 2.
"I think people feel good
about working here, in
part, because of the work
we do," said Jim Weddle,
Edward Jones' managing
partner. "We work with
individual investors and
help them make their lives
just a little bit better.
Perhaps because of the
work they've done with
us, they can send their
children to college, they
can retire a little earlier or
with greater comfort. It's
important work. It's work
that we earn every day.
It's a privilege to work
with our clients. I think
our associates feel good
about that work."
In naming Edward Jones
to the list, FORTUNE
editors said: "The
investment adviser
weathered the recession
without closing one of its
12,615 offices or laying
off a single employee.
Salaries were frozen, but
profit sharing continued."
"This honor is especially
gratifying in the face of
adversity and the
challenges the financial-
services industry has faced
the last two years,"
Weddle said. "We were
able to stay focused on the
long-term because we are
a partnership and we know
who we are and what we
do. We had no layoffs. We
had to make some difficult
decisions in terms of
cutting back expenses,
which we did
successfully. But when
you respect the people
who work here, you take
care of them not just in
the good times, but the
difficult times as well."
The full list and related
stories appear in the
February 8 issue of
FORTUNE, available on
newsstands January 25 and
now at
www.fortune.com/bestcom
panies.
According to
FORTUNE Deputy
Managing Editor Hank
Gilman, "The most
important considerations
for this year's list were
hiring and the ways in
which companies are
helping their employees
weather the recession. All


100 companies on our list
are currently hiring,
representing a total of
more than 92,000 open job
positions."
Currently, Edward Jones
has more than 600
positions available
throughout the country.
The most positions open
are that of financial
advisor and branch office
administrator. Each
Edward Jones branch
office includes one
financial advisor and one
branch office administrator
who work one on one with
clients in the communities
where those clients live.
To pick the "100 Best
Companies to Work For,"
FORTUNE partners with
the Great Place to Work(r)
Institute a global
research and consulting
firm with offices in 30
countries to conduct the
most extensive employee
survey in corporate
America.
Two-thirds of a
company's score is based
on the survey, sent to
randomly selected
employees. The survey
asks questions related to
employees' attitudes about
the management's
credibility, job satisfaction
and camaraderie. The
remaining third is based on
a company's responses to
the Institute's Culture
Audit questionnaire, which
asks detailed questions
about demographics, pay
and benefits, and open-
ended questions about
hiring, communication and
diversity.
The FORTUNE ranking
is one of several important
honors based on associate
input that Edward Jones
has received in recent
weeks. In early December,
the firm was ranked No. 1
in Registered Rep.
magazine's annual
brokerage report card for
the 17th consecutive year.
Also last month, Edward
Jones ranked No. 10
among the "50 Best
Employers in Canada" in
the Globe and
Mail's annual listing in
Report on Business
Magazine. Over the past
year,
Edward Jones also has
received workplace
recognition from dozens
of state publications in the
U.S.
Edward Jones provides
financial services for
individual investors in the
United States and,
through its affiliate, in
Canada. Every aspect of
the firm's business, from
the types of investment
options offered to the
location of branch offices,
is designed to cater to
individual investors in the
communities in which they
live and work. The firm's
12,000-plus financial


advisors work directly with
nearly 7 million clients to
understand their personal
goals from college
savings to retirement -
and create long-term
investment solutions that
emphasize a well-balanced
portfolio and a buy-and-
hold strategy. Edward
Jones embraces the
importance of building
long-term, face-to-face
relationships with clients,
helping them to understand
and make sense of the
investment options
available today.

Quinn Skierski

announces candidacy for

Live Oak City Clerk


Continued From Page 1A

"Many of the City
Clerk's duties require a va-
riety of skills, skills I have
developed over the past
sixteen years," he contin-
ued. "I am a small business
owner who understands
what it takes to effectively
run a business, balance a
budget, make payroll,
solve problems successful-
ly, and satisfy customers. I
have participated in per-
sonal leadership training
courses earning, the Klem-
mer & Associates 'Ph.D. in
Leadership' certificate; I
am a founding board mem-
ber of Future Now Min-
istries, was on the develop-
ment board for the Youth
Leadership Training Pro-
gram at the Advent Christ-
ian Village and most re-
cently, a certified process
server with the 3rd Judicial
Circuit. This has given me
experience with Clerk's of-
fices and lawyers in seven
counties."
Skierski said the role of
city clerk "has great appeal
for me, both professionally
and personally. The city
clerk's duties are many and
varied, and my extensive
professional background in
business has positioned me
to be ideally suited for this
office. If you've read min-
utes of public meetings, or
applied for various per-
mits, certificates or licens-
es, among other things,
you've encountered the
city clerk. The city clerk's
office is the starting point


for those conducting any
city business. And as the
official keeper and source
of city information, the city
clerk must effectively
communicate with the pub-
lic to ensure that all resi-
dents are well-informed
about Live Oak's business.
"My roots run deep for
the only place that I have
called home. My parents,
Joe and Jesse Skierski, are
residents of Live Oak, and
they raised my two broth-
ers and me here. I am also
blessed to be married to
'Cyndi K.' Hayes Skierski
for the past 16 years and
have two incredible boys,
Branson and Bryson. My
family and I are active
members of Melody Chris-
tian Center where Cyndi is
on the praise and worship
team and where we over-
see the 20s and 30s min-
istry.
"I feel strongly about
lending my expertise to the
workings of the place I've
always called home. It's
my belief that beyond the
keeping and provision of
information, the city clerk
can play a crucial role in
motivating residents to
public service and building
consensus with the elected
and appointed officials at
City Hall. It is with pride
and a sense of responsibili-
ty that I would embrace the
work of Live Oak City
Clerk.
"I ask for your vote
Tuesday, May 4 for Quinn
Skierski for Live Oak City
Clerk."

hit economically by the re-
peated closure of winter
oyster harvesting areas -
one of the county's leading
industries.
Since December, and as
a far back as September,
six major oyster harvesting
areas, or bars, in Franklin
County have been closed
because of heavy rains,
which have washed human
and animal waste into
Apalachicola Bay. The
runoff temporarily contam-
inates oysters, and the wa-
ter must undergo testing to
show that it is safe before
the bars are reopened.
According to Pam
Brownell, director of emer-
gency management for
Franklin County, the cur-
rent situation caused by the
rain and the inability to
harvest oysters is one of
the worst economic chal-
lenges to hit Franklin
County in years.
"Nearly 1,300 workers
were put out of work due to
the bay closure and be-
cause of the restrictions
placed on the bars," she
said. "At least 3,000 people
are directly affected in-
cluding the workers, their
wives and children."
According to Brownell,
the local bay was closed
the entire month of Decem-
ber, rendering hundreds of
locals without work.
"We've got people
whose homes are being re-
possessed, many whose
lights are being turned off,
and still more who are
without food," Brownell
said. "For us, it's a crisis,
but unfortunately it's not
likely that we'll receive
that declaration."
In Suwannee, emergency
management has set up a
collection center at the
Douglas Center Complex,
617 Ontario Avenue SW
Suite 200, where locals can
drop off non-perishable
food items, intimates and
toiletries to help those af-


fected in Franklin County,
said Kimberly Thomas,
SCEM assistant director.
"If the shoe was on the
other foot, I would want
folks to help us out,"
Thomas said. "If people
can spare to give any non-
perishable food, intimates,
toiletries, and personal
items like soap and deodor-
ants, it would all be help-
ful. These people cannot
put food on the table to
feed their children and
there are elderly folks in
need, too."
A flood of e-mails has
been sent stating that "the
food banks in Franklin
County are dry," and ac-
cording to Brownell, that's
the reality of the situation.
She said organizations like
Catholic Charities and the
Salvation Army are doing
all they can to help, but the
need is great and the sup-
ply is limited.
Suwannee County Sher-
iff/Emergency Manage-
ment Director Tony
Cameron said, "almost
everyone over there de-
pends on these oyster bars;
they don't have anything to
fall back on."
Suwannee emergency
personnel have already
called upon local business-
es and organizations to
pitch in, "but we're calling
on the community to help,"
Cameron said.
Anyone who can give is
encouraged to do so.
Folks can drop off dona-
tions Monday through Fri-
day at the Douglas Center
Complex-Suwannee
County Emergency Man-
agement. Monetary dona-
tions are to be sent to:
Franklin County Promise
Coalition, 28 Airport Road,
Apalachicola, FL 32320.

tion, with SEAFOOD

her five Grand Slam
championships. There
were no endorsements or
big money, just a pretty
trophy.
Gibson was the number
1 ranked woman's tennis
player in the world from
1956 through 1958. An
outstanding athlete, she
was also the first black
woman to play on the
Ladies PGA at the age of
37.
In 1971 she was admit-
ted to the Tennis Hall Of
Fame and in 1975 was
named New Jersey's State
Commissioner of Athlet-
ics, the first woman
named to the post. The
person she replaced was
none other than Arnold
Raymond Cream.
Cream is certainly no
one you would know but
Jersey Joe Walcott should
be. In 1951, Walcott at 37
was the oldest man at that
time to win the heavy-
weight boxing champi-
onship. This was not un-
usual because at age 33 he
was the oldest fighter to
fight for a heavyweight
championship. Walcott
defeated Ezzard Charles
for the title and lost it one
year later to Rocky Mar-
ciano.
Jersey Joe was 2-8 in
world championship
fights. He and Charles
were the first heavy-
weight championship
fight to have a black ref-
eree. Jersey Joe did have
one more time in the ring
in 1965. He was the refer-
ee for the second Clay vs.
Liston fight.
Controversy surrounded
the fight and Walcott was
never called on to referee
again. Clay went on to be-
come Muhammad Ali.
Walcott remained com-
missioner until retiring
and would often be seen
with New York's Boxing
Commissioner. Some fel-
low named Floyd Patter-
son.

The first step in responsibly applying nutrients to soil is to determine the amount of
nutrients needed by the plant or plants in question. The best and most effective way
to determine this is to have a soil sample analyzed for its nutrient contents.

NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT


Maintaining healthy plants and bank accounts


By Cliff Sl., i,.'
Resource Consultant
Suwannee County
Conservation District
With the recent rains
we've had this season, it's
a perfect time to bring up
the subject of nutrient
management. Whether
you operate a 10,000-acre
farm or maintain a tenth of
an acre lawn this topic is
important to everyone.

LIKE A GOODNEIGHBOR,
STATE FARM IS THERE.


Nutrient management
directly impacts the
environment and the
applicator's wallet.
Applying nutrients is
essential for good plant
growth, but over-applying
nutrients can harm both
plants and the
environment. Rainfall or
over-irrigation can push
excess nutrients through
the soil profile, which can
ultimately pollute drinking
water and/or lakes and
streams.
The first step in
responsibly applying
nutrients to soil is to
determine the amount of
nutrients needed by the
plant or plants in question.
The best and most
effective way to determine
this is to have a soil


OMNI Il me


sample analyzed for its
nutrient contents. The
basic report will provide
pH and lime
recommendations along
with nitrogen, phosphorus,
and potassium
recommendations. This
report is sufficient for
typical Nutrient
Management unless you
are intensively using an
area, in which case, you
may need a micronutrient
levels report as well. Most
reports provide a
recommendation on
nutrient application in
either pounds per 1000
square feet or pounds per
acre for each nutrient
needed. The next step is
to determine the fertilizer
that best fits your needs,
unless the quantity of the

application would allow
for you to have the
material custom blended.
In order to get a sample
that represents the area in
question, obtaining sub-
samples from several areas
in your field or lawn may
be necessary. The more
sub-samples you pull the
more accurate the sample
will represent the area.
Always avoid sub-
sampling areas that do not
represent the whole area,
such as bottoms that may
be dark, heavy, and rich in
nutrients. First obtain sub-
samples; collect them in a
clean plastic bucket, and
then vigorously shake the
bucket to mix its contents.
Use the mixture as your
sample and then just send
it to your soil lab of
choice.
The three primary
nutrients that are of
concern are nitrogen,
phosphorus, and
potassium. Generally,
nitrogen promotes growth
of foliage the top
portions of plants.


Phosphorus helps develop
stronger roots, as well as
flower and fruit
production, while
potassium builds
durability and disease
resistance. These nutrients
are indicated on the
fertilizer bag by numbers
that represent the
percentage of the nutrient
in each pound of material,
such as a 5-10-15. For
example, 5-10-15
indicates 5 lbs. of nitrogen
per 100 lbs. of material.
The next two numbers
refer to P205, which is the
oxidized form of
elemental phosphorus and
also the percentage per
pound of material.
Therefore, in the 5-10-15
fertilizer there is 10 lbs. of
phosphorus. The same
formula applies to
potassium (K), in that the
fertilizer percentage refers
to the oxidized form of K,
which is K20. There is 15
lbs of potassium (K) per
100 lbs of material in the
5-10-15 fertilizer material.
Just remember that the


numbers on the fertilizer
bag refer to the percentage
of N-P-K in the fertilizer.
Some key points to
remember when fertilizing
lawns and gardens are: (1)
use a slow release
fertilizer if feasible and
available; (2) mow often
and leave clippings on the
lawn as fertilizer; (3) be
careful not to spread
fertilizer on sidewalks
and/or driveways; (4) be
sure to calibrate your
spreader correctly; (5) use
compost or
manures/organic fertilizers
at a conservative rate.
Organic fertilizers, such as
manures or compost, break
down slowly and make
nutrients available for
longer periods. Also, in
flowerbeds and gardens,
it's been proven that plants
do better if fertilizer is
applied next to the plants
verses broadcasting the
fertilizer over the entire
area. This practice uses
less fertilizer too, saving
the savvy farmer dollars in
tough economic times.

Troop 408
Boy Scout Troop 408 has 15 active scouts that participate in hikes and
camping trips monthly. They are currently striving to learn more about
their local community and the projects that they can participate in to pro-
tect and preserve it. On a recent hike at Twin Rivers State Forest they re-
moved trash and litter to help future enjoyment of visitors as well as for
protection of wildlife and the environment. They have recently visited lo-
cal state parks, state forests, and Suwannee River Water Management
lands for adventure as well as educational opportunities in their area. The
current senior patrol leader of Troop 408 is David Collins.

REGAINING CIVILITY


WHETHER WE HAVE BECOME A LESS CIVIL
NATION HAS BEEN WIDELY DISCUSSED OF
LATE. FROM POLITICIANS AND "TALKING HELP? HURT?
HEADS" SCREAMING AT EACH OTHER TO
CELEBRITIES THROWING TEMPER
TANTRUMS, TO THE EVERYDAY
INCIVILITIES ON OUR ROADWAYS AND IN
OUR MARKETPLACES. THERE IS A GENERAL
SENSE THAT WE HAVE BECOME A NATION
OF ILL-TEMPERED BOORS. THAT IS THE
BAD NEWS. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT IN
RECOGNIZING OUR INCIVILITY THERE IS
HOPE FOR REDEMPTION. PERHAPS WE
NEED ETIQUETTE LESSONS FROM EMILY
POST, OR CIVICS CLASSES IN OUR HIGH
SCHOOL. BUT, ON A MORE BASIC LEVEL,
PERHAPS WE JUST NEED TO RECOGNIZE
THAT THE PROBLEM ARISES BECAUSE WE
HAVE CULTIVATED INDIVIDUALISM AND ITS CORRESPONDING SELFISHNESS
TO SUCH AN EXTREME THAT WE HAVE FORGOTTEN A CENTRAL TEACHING
OF CHRISTIANITY, AND INDEED OF ALL TRUE RELIGION. AFTER ALL, ISN'T
LOVING YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF THE LYNCH PIN OF BOTH MORALS
AND MANNERS? A SIMPLE LITMUS TEST FOR EVERY THOUGHT, WORD AND
DEED IS TO ASK ONESELF WHETHER ONE INTENDS TO HELP OR HURT WITH
ONE'S WORDS OR DEEDS. IF OUR INTENTION IS TO HELP, THEN WE CAN BE
PRETTY SURE THAT WE ARE BEING CIVIL, WHEREAS IF OUR TRUE INTENTION
IS TO HURT SOMEONE, EITHER EMOTIONALLY OR PHYSICALLY, WE CAN BE
PRETTY CERTAIN THAT WE ARE NOT BEING CIVIL. So, WE SHOULD
CONSIDER OUR ACTIONS IN THAT LIGHT, WHETHER THEY ARE INTENDED TO
HELP OR HURT SOMEONE, AND STRIVE TO ALWAYS COME DOWN ON THE
SIDE OF CIVILITY.

RELIGION


A special connection


"This is my Son,
whom I love; with
Him I am well
pleased." The Bible
records God's dec-
laration of love in
Matthew 3:17, fol-
lowing Jesus' bap-
tism and marking
the beginning of
his ministry here
on earth. The Fa-
ther was obviously
delighted with His


Son. I have always
believed that God uses the
Father and Son connection
to describe His relationship
to Jesus so that it would be
more comprehensible for
us, and today maybe I do
understand at least a hint of
what this verse describes.
My oldest son, Cory, just
celebrated his 21st birthday
... and 21 years ago his
Daddy and I experienced
the single greatest change
of our lives! Admittedly,
there were times over the
last several years that we
wondered if we would
make it (any parents re-
late?). But we did...and on
this side there is such an
overwhelming love for our
firstborn and anticipation
for his future; and for our
second, and our third. Be-
ing the oldest, Cory always
paved the way for his
brother and sister, breaking
his parents in to all the ups
and downs of raising chil-
dren. More than once we
have realized a better way
to handle a situation after
going through it the first
time with him. I guess that
is the burden of being the
oldest, and perhaps ex-
plains the Jewish custom of
the firstborn receiving the
double portion of inheri-
tance. Maybe they deserve
it!
It is easy for us to under-
stand why God was well
pleased with Jesus, after all
He walked through life
perfectly and without sin.
Our children, like their par-
ents, inherited and struggle
with a sin nature. Being
"well pleased" with our
children can be a daily
variable, but what if we
made it a decision that was
based more on who they
are than what they
achieve? I believe it is in-
tentional that God pro-
nounced His declaration
before Jesus' ministry even
began. He had yet to per-
form any miracles or


preach any ser-
mons, or complete
His amazing work
on the cross. Yet,
God was pleased
with Him...because
of who He was,
not his accomplish-
ments. This per-
spective should en-
courage us not to
discount decisions
our children make
that might not be


our preference, re-
alizing they are different
and separate from us.
Hopefully it will also make
it easier for us to relax and
allow our children to make
mistakes, stumble and
learn, and grow, without
fear that their struggles re-
flect some flaw in us.
So on this anniversary of
being a parent for 21 years
and having raised our first-
born to be a "legal adult",
of this we are sure: Cory,
we are well pleased with
you, because you are creat-
ed in the image of God,
and God has fearfully and
wonderfully made you to
love life, your family and
helping others. To enjoy a
home-cooked meal, the his-
tory channel and competi-
tion of any kind. He made
you one of a kind, unique!
We are well pleased be-
cause out of all the parents
God could have given you,
He gave you to us and we
are forever blessed because
of it, and watch with antici-
pation to see how your life
unfolds. We pray that our
love has given you roots
that will help you find your
wings.
I know the plans I have
for you," declares the Lord,
"plans to prosper you and
not harm you, and to give
you a hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11

February and March:


Healthy Floridians Months


By Mary Ward
Suwannee County Health
Department
The Suwannee County Health
Department and Florida Department
of Health (DOH) announce the
kickoff of "Healthy Floridians
Months" to promote physical
activity and healthy nutrition for
Floridians of all ages and abilities.
This year the Suwannee County
Health Department is encouraging
individuals to make healthy living a
habit that takes place not only during
Healthy Floridians months, but a
habit that lasts throughout the year.
This is the seventh year that
Suwannee County Health
Department and ITS partners will
have the opportunity to highlight the
variety of opportunities available in


their communities that promote
healthy lifestyles. For several years,
DOH has promoted healthy
lifestyles through "Step Up,
Florida!" which was renamed in
2009 to "Healthy Floridians
Months" to align with the
recommendations of the Governor's
Council on Physical Fitness.
February's focus on being healthy
is to obtain physical activity. We are
very fortunate to live in a state and a
county in which we have nice
weather plus wonderful state and
county parks, trails and safe
neighborhoods to exercise in. We
have several state of the art fitness
centers in Live Oak and Branford
that offer exercise classes and
personal trainers to help you meet
your fitness goals. Walking is

Suwannee County's public works director said Tuesday that recent concerns over the county's recycling program have led to a "flurry of misinformation." Jerry Sikes told county commissioners that his office had received a "lot of phone calls about this ... and ... some implied that we were intentionally deceiving people and that certainly hasn't been the case." Under questioning at the meeting by this reporter, however, Sikes conceded that the set-up at county refuse sites is misleading at best. AFeb. 5 article in the Suwannee Democrat reported that Suwannee High students'efforts to recycle certain materials failed, as county workers dumped the materials in the landfill instead.

Of that group, Wright was among five selected to represent their profession as top engineers. The New Faces of Engineering program highlights the interesting and unique work of young engineers and the resulting impact on society. Young engineers two to five years out of school are the focus of the program. Wright was hired by the District in 2006 to review environmental resource permits, which consider stormwater runoff quality and flooding potential. He later became the project coordinator for the District's efforts with the Federal Emergency Management Agency Map Modernization Program, managing a budget of more than $4.2 million. While working with FEMA, Wright helped develop several Web site applications, enabling residents to view and print flood zone maps, determine flood elevations and answer common questions about the National Flood Insurance Program. Wright's current duties include working on water supply planning in order to plan for future water supplies and assisting with the formation of the Nature Coast Regional Water Authority, which will connect four municipalities and two counties with drinking water and wastewater. Amember of ASABE since 2004, Wright holds a bachelor's degree in agricultural and biological engineering from the University of Florida, where he is pursuing a master's of engineering and where as an undergraduate he served as president of the ASABE student chapter. "It is an honor to be nominated for the New Faces of Engineering program, considering the high caliber of agricultural and biological engineers in the nation," Wright said. "I would like to thank the District for supporting my continued education and allowing my diverse workload." Wright said he encourages any student interested in engineering to visit www.DiscoverEngineering.org.

By Elena Toro Suwannee County Extension This week I would like to share with you some of the challenges our farmers have faced recently. As a consumer, I understand it is hard to grasp all the hard work our farmers do to bring food to our tables. However, as someone who knows the many of the Due to volunteer leadership staffing difficulties, AARPTax-Aide has found it necessary to temporarily suspend its free volunteer tax preparation service in Suwannee, Hamilton and Columbia counties this tax filing season that would have begun Feb. 1. AARPTax-Aide wants all citizens to know that they are deeply committed to assisting the taxpayers in these areas, and they are working to rectify this situation for next year. In the interim, to locate an alternate site near them, taxpayers may visit the AARPTax-Aide Web site at www.aarp.org/taxaide, or call toll-free 1888-227-7669. AARPTax-Aide is a program of the AARPFoundation, offered in conjunction with the IRS.AARP tax filing service suspendedTake Off Pounds SensiblyCALADIUM BULBSEXTENSION UPDATECold snap took its toll on local ag operationsstruggles farmers face, I feel the responsibility to share with you this short overview of some of the happenings in the fields this winter. Poultry operations In the last few weeks we have experienced severe weather in our area, which has caused an increase in heating costs for our poultry growers and greenhouse operators. Based on conversations with several poultry growers, heating costs doubled this season due in part to increased consumption and higher gas prices. Greenhouse operators have also suffered the same problem; it is proving challenging to grow a profitable crop this season. Livestock Livestock consume more hay and feed during cold weather in order to meet their maintenance requirements. As a result, feeding costs have increased significantly for livestock producers this winter. On the other hand, cool season grasses for grazing have not grown much due to the severe cold and reduced sunlight. The rain is always welcome but when combined with cloudy weather it slows down the grass growth. An average 1,000pound cow will eat approximately 30 pounds of good quality hay every day. However, when hay is low quality cows will eat more and may still loose wait as they cannot get all the nutrients they need. This is also a busy time for cattle operations. Cows are calving this time of the year, and cattle producers are constantly checking cows and calves regardless of the weather. Contrary to popular belief, cows enjoy cold weather but do not like to standing in muddy areas and eating low quality grass and feed. Field crops Every year there is a significant acreage planted with cool season forages and small grains to be harvested for seed in our area. These crops will suffer at least a 30 percent yield reduction when harvested. Most of the varieties grown, do not tolerate extreme cold temperatures for lengthy periods of time. In addition, farmers have to wait to fertilize these crops to prevent the nutrients from leaching as part of the Best Management Practices also known as BMPs, but this means the plants are not getting the nutrients on a timely manner this season. Fruit trees Structural damage to the trees will not be seen until growth resumes later in the season, watch for bark splitting in trees. Be careful when pruning fruit trees this winter; assess any damage before heavy pruning. It is my desire that you find this short piece informational. If I can be of any assistance please don't hesitate to contact the Suwannee County Extension Office at 3622771. Just as a reminder, Extension programs are open to all people regardless of race, color, sex, religion, disability or national origin. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, any person needing a special accommodation to participate in any activity should contact the Suwannee County Cooperative Extension Service at 1302 Eleventh Street, SW, Live Oak, Florida 32060 or telephone (386) 362-2771 at least five working days prior to the event.

Our View is formed by that board.OUR VIEWSuwannee DemocratPublic Works Director Jerry Sikes worried at Tuesday's county commission meeting that folks thought the disposal of recyclables at county refuse sites was intentional a blatant attempt at deceit on the part of county officials. We've seen no evidence to suggest such a thing. Let's chalk it all up to human error instead. Having said that, it's imperative we address the immediate problem make sure folks know that items deposited in county recycling bins might just end up in the landfill instead then address the broader question beyond. Hamilton County, with a population barely a third of Suwannee's, successfully recycles, we're told. Why can't we? We'll be exploring the matter in some depth in the coming weeks. ••• Suwannee County's always been a kindhearted place, and local folks are proving it once again, judging by their response to the recent hardship in Franklin County. As Carnell Hawthorne Jr. reports on today's front page, oyster fishing the area's economic mainstay has come to a halt as a result of contamination of coastal waters. Suwannee residents are only too glad to help. Just as they've given selflessly to Haiti in recent weeks. Disaster fatigue? It hasn't set in yet, even with our own troubles, which include a 10.9 percent county unemployment rate. Good job, everybody. ••• Congratulations to local civic and educational leaders who've been recognized of late: Suwannee County Chamber of Commerce Trailblazer of the Year Joe Chamberlain; Chamber Citizen of the Year Roy Crain Jr.; Teacher of the Year Nanette "Sam" Bunce of Branford High; and School-Related Employee of the Year Ta-Trease Sapp of Suwannee-Hamilton Technical Center. Look for feature stories on each in a future edition. Recycling and moreBIBLE VERSE"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39 Want to vent? Our hotline is open 24/7.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. Suwannee Countians,it's time to speak your mind! How? By calling the Suwannee Democrat Rant and Rave hotline. The hotline never closes and is your way to let it out. You can let everyone know how you feel Ñ as long as you express yourself in a respectful way. Note:In written entries to Rant and Rave,errors in spelling,grammar or punctuation are those of the authors.Everytime I read about this "business park" planned by the county commissioners (AKA, the 5 kings of Suwannee County) I turn completely irate. Is there any actual planned benefit of this thing other than lining the current land owner's pocket with "free" money? They don't even have any buyers/businesses lined up to use it, do they?! What an asinine way to spend tax payer money. The commission has had so many opportunities in the past years for businesses and industry in this county. Every time there is a hint of interest, they douse it with cold water and crucify the people that wanted to do it. For an area that prides itself on being of conservative values, I've never seen a place so anti free-enterprise. Their ignorance of economics is just stunning. Surprise, surprise a while back when Pilgrims Pride was cutting jobs and they were screaming "Oh no, we've become too reliant on one industry in the area!". Earth to the illiterate: THERE'S NEVER BEEN ANY OTHER INDUSTRYTHANKS TO YOU, AND PROBABLYNEVER WILLBE!I was certainly disappointed to read in a recent editorial that time was running out for the Wet-Dry vote on the ballot this year. Why hasn't the Chamber of Commerce made sure that this issue is on the ballot? Come on, Chamber, it is time for you to realize the economic importance of this issue.I just wanted to add some info to the recycling posts of last week. Many municipalities have discovered that recycling and revenue can go together if managed properly. The City of Phoenix posted a 1.4 million dollar profit for their recycling program with an estimated 2.1 million dollar additional savings related to decreased landfill space and other disposal costs that were avoided. One municipality earned $21,000 for each 900,000 pounds of trash recycled. It is not only a scandal that the county dumps our separated recyclables into the landfill, but also a shame that we lose the revenue it could bring!Does anyone really think our city services are better being outsourced. The City outsourced the police department and it didn't work. The School outsourced the Custodial work and it didn't work. Is city hall just to lazy to run the garbage, sewer and water or to sorry.Only in Suwannee County... our new prison sign has a motto, "we never walk alone," Ha, I hope not, really, what does that mean? For years people have petitioned to get a prison here, the reason? jobs and jobs for our children. Personally, I hope my children will overcome our local school system and go to college and prosper beyond our county. I don't want a prison in my backyard and I question anyone's common sense that does. And when will we see the supposed 800 jobs the prison creates? From what I have observed, they should only hire a dozen, physical fitness trainers that is. Finally, to the Democrat , in your opening statement in Rant and Rave, you rave about our ability to access your hotline 24/7, maybe you should add the phone number to your rave. The phone number 386-208-8314 appears following each week's Rants. EditorI hear all the controversy about our city outsourcing public works. Spin it any which way you want but my utility bill goes up and up and up. I can't help but think it is to pay more for public works.Okay, I just wanted to comment on this recycling of our newspaper. I have saved newspapers and recycling since we moved here and since they've had the new dumpster sites. If we got a $1 per 1,000 pounds for it, it would be a gain. Landfill costs us per ton and I'm sure that makes a double loss for the county, loss of income and cost of disposing of it. The paper itself, I won't recycle it anymore until I see that the county is recycling it and taking it to the market.

Photos:Joyce Marie Taylor, CorrespondentBy Joyce Marie Taylor CorrespondentJASPER For bicycling enthusiasts it was a sweetheart of a deal celebrating Valentines weekend in historic White Springs, even with the chilly weather. This twoday riding event included fully stocked rest stops along scenic bike routes in and around the city. All age groups participated, even folks in their 60s, 70s and 80s. Quite a few of them have been coming to this event for years. For the last 21 years, White Springs has served as headquarters for the Suwannee Bicycle Association, a non-profit organization founded by Lys Burden in 1989. The SBA is dedicated to environmental awareness, as well as family fitness for people in the Suwannee River region. They are located half a block north of the Suwannee Bicycle Association headquarters in White Springs. Adams Country Store, where US 41 intersects with CR 136. Their mission is to offer in-depth understanding and appreciation of natural ecosystems. To do this, they sponsor bicycling, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, snorkeling and springhopping events in the Suwannee Valley Region, as well as publishing and distributing educational brochures and pamphlets. After Saturdays warmup ride and evening potluck dinner, the real action began on Valentines Sunday at 7 a.m. with a continental breakfast. Then, at 8 a.m. the sweetheart cyclistsŽ started their journeys with choices of 25, 52, 62 and 100 mile rides. Some of them pedaled into Live Oak to enjoy lunch at the Dixie Grill or Grace Manor, but those who preferred a shorter route only went as far as the Whistlestop Coffee & Deli in Wellborn. According to some folks, they have the best freshly baked scones in town. Sunday evening, after an exhilarating bike ride, the cyclists enjoyed a buffet dinner at SBA headquarters. Current SBA membership includes people from Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, Washington and Vermont. For me its kind of like a family reunion with my snowbird cycling friends,Ž said event coordinator Jeannie Hargrave. If you missed this ride, dont worry. The SBAs next cycling event, the Spring Pedal and Paddle Festival, is coming up April 30 through May 2.For more information contact Jeanne Hargrave via e-mail at BiknJeanne@aol.com or visit the SBAs Web site at www.suwanneebike.org.

NO CLOTHES PLEASEPregnancy Care CenterANNUAL YARD SALEFundraiser575552-F Attorney won't get a raise The first being county attorney, the post currently filled by Airth. "I probably ought to be quiet," Airth told commissioners when questioned. "I was asked what I wanted and I answered. You asked Mr. Blue and he answered and you ranked me highest." Airth noted he didn't like negotiating his salary during the commission meeting. "You interviewed the county coordinator and didn't ask him about his salary in an open meeting," said Airth. "This is about the third time this is happened to me and it's getting a little bit old." Chairman Wesley Wainwright, who spearheaded going out for qualifications, said he felt Blue was the better choice. He was not present, however, when the board ranked Airth and Blue several weeks ago. Airth and Blue were the only two applicants. "We had an individual that was ranked second that was offered to the job for less money and his expertise ... was better than Mr. Airth's," said Wainwright. "I would go along with keeping Mr. Airth at onehundred dollars an hour and as the retainer fee, I don't agree, because we have one that won't charge one." In his application, Blue said he would not charge a retainer fee, only $100 an hour. "We got a certain rate we're willing to pay and it's up to Mr. Airth to accept it or not," Wainwright continued. Commissioner Ivie Fowler said it would simply not be fair if the county attorney got a raise when other county employees were left out. "County employees could not even get a raise last year and I'm looking at a 36 percent increase here," said Fowler. Actually, Airth sought a 25 percent hourly rate increase and a 11 percent retainer fee increase. "If I can't pay the fulltime employees a raise, I don't feel that a part time should get one," he added. Fowler mentioned that commissioner Douglas Udell's quote in a previous Suwannee Democrat article that Airth deserves a raise because county commissioners receive one was not warranted. Fowler said he received raises totaling only 2.3 percent over the past three years. Udell said Airth is entitled to a raise just like the others on the board. "Whenever the commissioners salary increases with the governor's recommendation, that has not happened with Mr. Airth," said Udell. "There's no browbeating on me about my statement (in the Democrat ) because it was true," said Udell. Udell said Airth should not be compared to other county employees because of his stature. "I don't see the relevance to these employees. They don't have his experience," he said. Udell said Airth should keep his job and it shows through the ranking process. "What I'm looking at is the integrity of the applications and the integrity of the ranking system," said Udell. Wainwright looked over the ranking sheets while Udell spoke and said he disagreed with how Udell scored Airth and Blue. "Anytime you do a ranking system comparable to poker, I'll beat you," said Udell. "Now don't get angry when you get beat on the ranking system (he told Wainwright). I don't intend to lose on something I can win. So don't question my integrity." Wainwright said he never questioned his integrity. "It showed it on the score sheet," he told Udell. Jesse Caruthers then turned his attention to Airth. "Bottom line here is what's three votes going to get you," he told the county attorney. "I already know, Mr. Caruthers," said Udell. "Then you better fold," Caruthers responded. Airth negotiated with commissioners and said he would leave the retainer fee where it is, but still wanted the hourly increase and added a provision that if his contract is canceled before the end of the anniversary date, he would receive a six months severance package. If approved his new contract could start March 1. "That sounds fair to me," Billy Maxwell said. Wainwright disagreed. "I am still set on my proposal of one-hundred dollars an hour," he said. "That's the most I'd do is what we're already paying." Live Oak native Franz Metz put the issue in perspective for the commissioners. "Unfortunately you're voting for our money and I'm tired of it," he said. "If you guys have to go to Perry, that's not my problem right now. If it's coming out of your pocket you might think differently about this. You got two lawyers to do the same job, get the lowest one." Caruthers eventually moved to keep Airth's pay and retainer the same, but added the six-month severance provision. It was seconded by Fowler. It was approved 4-1 with Wainwright dissenting. Airth said he would inform the board of his decision to either accept or deny the proposal. Continued From Page 1A "Jerry, how long have the igloos (recycling bins) been at the collection sites?" the reporter asked Sikes. "Quite a few years," Sikes responded. "Is there a sign up at any of the collection sites saying that your stuff may or may not be recycled?" the reporter asked. "No, not right now," said Sikes. "But when people put stuff in there they're assuming it's being recycled," the reporter continued. Sikes conceded that if someone deposits items in a recycling bin, "they should expect that it will be recycled and probably that's a failure on our part, or I'll say on my part that we have left those out there. If we need to remove them and remove the perception that we're trying to recycle right now, until we get a more viable program together, it's probably what I think we need to do then that way there is no misinformation or perception about it." Commissioner Ivie Fowler agreed that a lot of people were under the false assumption the county was recycling. "Alot of people don't know you can't get rid of it, they don't know what it cost to get rid of it," said Fowler. "When you start saying well how much will I have to add to your taxes, they usually don't want to do it." Still, Sikes said something needs to done. "And I know it dampens the public interest in recycling," said Sikes. He said he would gather more information on the issue, as well as maybe looking at neighboring counties in a joint recycling effort, and report back to the board at a later time.No deception intended, says SikesContinued From Page 1A know whether there is or is not a recycling program in Suwannee. First, he said, the confusion surrounding the recycling igloos at county collection sites should be cleared up. "There's no sign that says don't recycle or don't do this or that," he noted. As for what to do next, he said looking at other counties would be a start. "What about the next county," he asked. "They probably do recycle, or they've got the same problems that Suwannee has. But we need to look." Club sponsor and SHS teacher Amy Hendry, who lives in Hamilton County, said she was told by Hamilton County's Solid Waste Department Director and Recycling Coordinator Dale Jackson that Hamilton does have a recycling program, funded in part by grants and aided by inmate labor. The county reportedly makes anywhere from $18,000 to $78,000 a year in profit. "I think that's pretty impressive for a small county," said Hendry. The Democrat confirmed that Hamilton County recycles. "We're already sending (recyclables) to (a landfill in) Georgia anyway, why can't we send it to Hamilton to be recycled," club member Rhett Butler asked. Hendry asked Snyder what the club needs to do next. "You got to gather information because we don't want to beat up the county," he said. He told club members they need to continue to gather signatures on a petition calling on the county to recycle, and spread word of their cause far and wide. "Hopefully you'll have a partner in DEP, other counties and anybody who collects recyclables," said Snyder. Student Victoria Benson said talks need to begin at the county level to move the county closer to recycling. "I think it would be good if we can improve it because right now we're not getting real far," she said. Club President Frank McCrary shared similar sentiments. "It's something that needs to be done and cannot be forgotten, the sooner the better," he said. "The (members) have all given everything they've got, they're workingStudents prepare enviro strategyContinued From Page 1A hard." The club has 11 full time, active volunteers, McCrary said. About 23 help when they can. The club will hold another meeting Wednesday at 8 a.m. at SHS. 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. "Given the current economic and political climate in our nation, and here in Florida, it has become clear to me that I can best put my years of service and experience to use by running for governor of the state of Florida," McCollum said. Dinner tickets are $30 with special seating for VIPsponsorships. The talk is sponsored by the Suwannee County Republican Executive Committee.

That's exactly what firefighters were faced with Thursday morning. All paid and volunteer county fire units were called to the scene. In total between 40-60 fighters were headed to the fire with 60,000 gallons of water to fight the blaze. "It's at times like this when the volunteer firefighters really step up and come out of the woodwork," Conner said. The chicken house's owner declined to comment, but stood speaking with a Pilgrim's Pride representative. "It wasn't a fast moving fire, but it was fully involved," Conner said.

SOLDSOLD SOLD The financial-services firm Edward Jones, which has branch offices that serve the Suwannee County area, ranked No. 2 on FORTUNE magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work For 2010" list in its 11th year on the prestigious list. Edward Jones also ranked No. 1 for large-sized companies. Edward Jones'11 FORTUNE rankings also include top 10 finishes for eight years and consecutive No. 1 rankings in 2002 and 2003. This is the firm's second consecutive year at No. 2. "I think people feel good about working here, in part, because of the work we do," said Jim Weddle, Edward Jones'managing partner. "We work with individual investors and help them make their lives just a little bit better. Perhaps because of the work they've done with us, they can send their children to college, they can retire a little earlier or with greater comfort. It's important work. It's work that we earn every day. It's a privilege to work with our clients. I think our associates feel good about that work." In naming Edward Jones to the list, FORTUNE editors said: "The investment adviser weathered the recession without closing one of its 12,615 offices or laying off a single employee. Salaries were frozen, but profit sharing continued." "This honor is especially gratifying in the face of adversity and the challenges the financialservices industry has faced the last two years," Weddle said. "We were able to stay focused on the long-term because we are a partnership and we know who we are and what we do. We had no layoffs. We had to make some difficult decisions in terms of cutting back expenses, which we did successfully. But when you respect the people who work here, you take care of them Ñ not just in the good times, but the difficult times as well." The full list and related stories appear in the February 8 issue of FORTUNE, available on newsstands January 25 and now at www.fortune.com/bestcom panies. According to FORTUNE Deputy Managing Editor Hank Gilman, "The most important considerations for this year's list were hiring and the ways in which companies are helping their employees weather the recession. All 100 companies on our list are currently hiring, representing a total of more than 92,000 open job positions." Currently, Edward Jones has more than 600 positions available throughout the country. The most positions open are that of financial advisor and branch office administrator. Each Edward Jones branch office includes one financial advisor and one branch office administrator who work one on one with clients in the communities where those clients live. To pick the "100 Best Companies to Work For," FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work(r) Institute Ñ a global research and consulting firm with offices in 30 countries Ñ to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the survey, sent to randomly selected employees. The survey asks questions related to employees'attitudes about the management's credibility, job satisfaction and camaraderie. The remaining third is based on a company's responses to the Institute's Culture Audit questionnaire, which asks detailed questions about demographics, pay and benefits, and openended questions about hiring, communication and diversity. The FORTUNE ranking is one of several important honors based on associate input that Edward Jones has received in recent weeks. In early December, the firm was ranked No. 1 in Registered Rep. magazine's annual brokerage report card for the 17th consecutive year. Also last month, Edward Jones ranked No. 10 among the "50 Best Employers in Canada" in the Globe and Mail's annual listing in Report on Business Magazine. Over the past year, Edward Jones also has received workplace recognitions from dozens of state publications in the U.S. Edward Jones provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and, through its affiliate, in Canada.

"I am a small business owner who understands what it takes to effectively run a business, balance a budget, make payroll, solve problems successfully, and satisfy customers. I have participated in personal leadership training courses earning, the Klemmer & Associates ÔPh.D. in Leadership'certificate; I am a founding board member of Future Now Ministries, was on the development board for the Youth Leadership Training Program at the Advent Christian Village and most recently, a certified process server with the 3rd Judicial Circuit. This has given me experience with Clerk's offices and lawyers in seven counties." Skierski said the role of city clerk "has great appeal for me, both professionally and personally. The city clerk's duties are many and varied, and my extensive professional background in business has positioned me to be ideally suited for this office. If you've read minutes of public meetings, or applied for various permits, certificates or licenses, among other things, you've encountered the city clerk. The city clerk's office is the starting point for those conducting any city business. And as the official keeper and source of city information, the city clerk must effectively communicate with the public to ensure that all residents are well-informed about Live Oak's business. "My roots run deep for the only place that I have called home. My parents, Joe and Jesse Skierski, are residents of Live Oak, and they raised my two brothers and me here. I am also blessed to be married to ÔCyndi K.'Hayes Skierski for the past 16 years and have two incredible boys, Branson and Bryson. My family and I are active members of Melody Christian Center where Cyndi is on the praise and worship team and where we oversee the 20s and 30s ministry. "I feel strongly about lending my expertise to the workings of the place I've always called home. It's my belief that beyond the keeping and provision of information, the city clerk can play a crucial role in motivating residents to public service and building consensus with the elected and appointed officials at City Hall. It is with pride and a sense of responsibility that I would embrace the work of Live Oak City Clerk. "I ask for your vote Tuesday, May 4 for Quinn Skierski for Live Oak City Clerk."Quinn Skierski announces candidacy for Live Oak City ClerkContinued From Page 1A hit economically by the repeated closure of winter oyster harvesting areas Ñ one of the county's leading industries. Since December, and as a far back as September, six major oyster harvesting areas, or bars, in Franklin County have been closed because of heavy rains, which have washed human and animal waste into Apalachicola Bay. The runoff temporarily contaminates oysters, and the water must undergo testing to show that it is safe before the bars are reopened. According to Pam Brownell, director of emergency management for Franklin County, the current situation caused by the rain and the inability to harvest oysters is one of the worst economic challenges to hit Franklin County in years. "Nearly 1,300 workers were put out of work due to the bay closure and because of the restrictions placed on the bars," she said. "At least 3,000 people are directly affected including the workers, their wives and children." According to Brownell, the local bay was closed the entire month of December, rendering hundreds of locals without work. "We've got people whose homes are being repossessed, many whose lights are being turned off, and still more who are without food," Brownell said. "For us, it's a crisis, but unfortunately it's not likely that we'll receive that declaration." In Suwannee, emergency management has set up a collection center at the Douglas Center Complex, 617 Ontario Avenue SW Suite 200, where locals can drop off non-perishable food items, intimates and toiletries to help those affected in Franklin County, said Kimberly Thomas, SCEM assistant director. "If the shoe was on the other foot, I would want folks to help us out," Thomas said. "If people can spare to give any nonperishable food, intimates, toiletries, and personal items like soap and deodorants, it would all be helpful. These people cannot put food on the table to feed their children and there are elderly folks in need, too." Aflood of e-mails has been sent stating that "the food banks in Franklin County are dry," and according to Brownell, that's the reality of the situation. She said organizations like Catholic Charities and the Salvation Army are doing all they can to help, but the need is great and the supply is limited. Suwannee County Sheriff/Emergency Management Director Tony Cameron said, "almost everyone over there depends on these oyster bars; they don't have anything to fall back on." Suwannee emergency personnel have already called upon local businesses and organizations to pitch in, "but we're calling on the community to help," Cameron said. Anyone who can give is encouraged to do so. Folks can drop off donations Monday through Friday at the Douglas Center ComplexÑSuwannee County Emergency Management. Monetary donations are to be sent to: Franklin County Promise Coalition, 28 Airport Road, Apalachicola, FL32320. Make checks payable to: Franklin Promise Coalition, with SEAFOOD WORKERS written on the memo line. For questions call Kimberly Thomas at 386-364-3755 or visit BayaidFranklin.com.

There were no endorsements or big money, just a pretty trophy. Gibson was the number 1 ranked woman's tennis player in the world from 1956 through 1958. An outstanding athlete, she was also the first black woman to play on the Ladies PGAat the age of 37. In 1971 she was admitted to the Tennis Hall Of Fame and in 1975 was named New Jersey's State Commissioner of Athletics, the first woman named to the post. The person she replaced was none other than Arnold Raymond Cream. Cream is certainly no one you would know but Jersey Joe Walcott should be. In 1951, Walcott at 37 was the oldest man at that time to win the heavyweight boxing championship. This was not unusual because at age 33 he was the oldest fighter to fight for a heavyweight championship. Walcott defeated Ezzard Charles for the title and lost it one year later to Rocky Marciano. Jersey Joe was 2-8 in world championship fights. He and Charles were the first heavyweight championship fight to have a black referee. Jersey Joe did have one more time in the ring in 1965. He was the referee for the second Clay vs. Liston fight. Controversy surrounded the fight and Walcott was never called on to referee again. Clay went on to become Muhammad Ali . Walcott remained commissioner until retiring and would often be seen with New York's Boxing Commissioner. Some fellow named Floyd Patterson.

Whether you operate a 10,000-acre farm or maintain a tenth of an acre lawn this topic is important to everyone.The first step in responsibly applying nutrients to soil is to determine the amount of nutrients needed by the plant or plants in question. The best and most effective way to determine this is to have a soil sample analyzed for its nutrient contents.NUTRIENT MANAGEMENTMaintaining healthy plants and bank accountsPulling a soil sample is the first step towards nutrient management success. Courtesy photoNutrient management directly impacts the environment and the applicator's wallet. Applying nutrients is essential for good plant growth, but over-applying nutrients can harm both plants and the environment. Rainfall or over-irrigation can push excess nutrients through the soil profile, which can ultimately pollute drinking water and/or lakes and streams. The first step in responsibly applying nutrients to soil is to determine the amount of nutrients needed by the plant or plants in question. The best and most effective way to determine this is to have a soil sample analyzed for its nutrient contents. The basic report will provide pH and lime recommendations along with nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium recommendations. This report is sufficient for typical Nutrient Management unless you are intensively using an area, in which case, you may need a micronutrient levels report as well. Most reports provide a recommendation on nutrient application in either pounds per 1000 square feet or pounds per acre for each nutrient needed. The next step is to determine the fertilizer that best fits your needs, unless the quantity of the application would allow for you to have the material custom blended. In order to get a sample that represents the area in question, obtaining subsamples from several areas in your field or lawn may be necessary. The more sub-samples you pull the more accurate the sample will represent the area. Always avoid subsampling areas that do not represent the whole area, such as bottoms that may be dark, heavy, and rich in nutrients. First obtain subsamples; collect them in a clean plastic bucket, and then vigorously shake the bucket to mix its contents. Use the mixture as your sample and then just send it to your soil lab of choice. The three primary nutrients that are of concern are nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Generally, nitrogen promotes growth of foliage Ñ the top portions of plants. Phosphorus helps develop stronger roots, as well as flower and fruit production, while potassium builds durability and disease resistance. These nutrients are indicated on the fertilizer bag by numbers that represent the percentage of the nutrient in each pound of material, such as a 5-10-15. For example, 5-10-15 indicates 5 lbs. of nitrogen per 100 lbs. of material. The next two numbers refer to P2O5, which is the oxidized form of elemental phosphorus and also the percentage per pound of material. Therefore, in the 5-10-15 fertilizer there is 10 lbs. of phosphorus. The same formula applies to potassium (K), in that the fertilizer percentage refers to the oxidized form of K, which is K2O. There is 15 lbs of potassium (K) per 100 lbs of material in the 5-10-15 fertilizer material. Just remember that the numbers on the fertilizer bag refer to the percentage of N-P-K in the fertilizer. Some key points to remember when fertilizing lawns and gardens are: (1) use a slow release fertilizer if feasible and available; (2) mow often and leave clippings on the lawn as fertilizer; (3) be careful not to spread fertilizer on sidewalks and/or driveways; (4) be sure to calibrate your spreader correctly; (5) use compost or manures/organic fertilizers at a conservative rate. Organic fertilizers, such as manures or compost, break down slowly and make nutrients available for longer periods. Also, in flowerbeds and gardens, it's been proven that plants do better if fertilizer is applied next to the plants verses broadcasting the fertilizer over the entire area. This practice uses less fertilizer too, saving the savvy farmer dollars in tough economic times.

Rob Cathcart, Agent 115 Grand Street NE Live Oak, FL 32064 Bus: 386-364-7900 rob.cathcart.j656@statefarm.com 570047-F RELIGION "This is my Son, whom I love; with Him I am well pleased." The Bible records God's declaration of love in Matthew 3:17, following Jesus'baptism and marking the beginning of his ministry here on earth. The Father was obviously delighted with His Son. I have always believed that God uses the Father and Son connection to describe His relationship to Jesus so that it would be more comprehensible for us, and today maybe I do understand at least a hint of what this verse describes. My oldest son, Cory, just celebrated his 21st birthday ... and 21 years ago his Daddy and I experienced the single greatest change of our lives! Admittedly, there were times over the last several years that we wondered if we would make it (any parents relate?). But we did...and on this side there is such an overwhelming love for our firstborn and anticipation for his future; and for our second, and our third. Being the oldest, Cory always paved the way for his brother and sister, breaking his parents in to all the ups and downs of raising children. More than once we have realized a better way to handle a situation after going through it the first time with him. I guess that is the burden of being the oldest, and perhaps explains the Jewish custom of the firstborn receiving the double portion of inheritance. Maybe they deserve it! It is easy for us to understand why God was well pleased with Jesus, after all He walked through life perfectly and without sin. Our children, like their parents, inherited and struggle with a sin nature. Being "well pleased" with our children can be a daily variable, but what if we made it a decision that was based more on who they are than what they achieve? I believe it is intentional that God pronounced His declaration before Jesus'ministry even began. He had yet to perform any miracles or preach any sermons, or complete His amazing work on the cross. Yet, God was pleased with Him...because of who He was, not his accomplishments. This perspective should encourage us not to discount decisions our children make that might not be our preference, realizing they are different and separate from us. Hopefully it will also make it easier for us to relax and allow our children to make mistakes, stumble and learn, and grow, without fear that their struggles reflect some flaw in us. So on this anniversary of being a parent for 21 years and having raised our firstborn to be a "legal adult", of this we are sure: Cory, we are well pleased with you, because you are created in the image of God, and God has fearfully and wonderfully made you to love life, your family and helping others. To enjoy a home-cooked meal, the history channel and competition of any kind. He made you one of a kind, unique! We are well pleased because out of all the parents God could have given you, He gave you to us and we are forever blessed because of it, and watch with anticipation to see how your life unfolds. We pray that our love has given you roots that will help you find your wings.

This year the Suwannee County Health Department is encouraging individuals to make healthy living a habit that takes place not only during Healthy Floridians months, but a habit that lasts throughout the year. This is the seventh year that Suwannee County Health Department and ITS partners will have the opportunity to highlight the variety of opportunities available in their communities that promote healthy lifestyles. For several years, DOH has promoted healthy lifestyles through "Step Up, Florida!" which was renamed in 2009 to "Healthy Floridians Months" to align with the recommendations of the Governor's Council on Physical Fitness. February's focus on being healthy is to obtain physical activity. We are very fortunate to live in a state and a county in which we have nice weather plus wonderful state and county parks, trails and safe neighborhoods to exercise in. We have several state of the art fitness centers in Live Oak and Branford that offer exercise classes and personal trainers to help you meet your fitness goals. Walking is always a free option. There is a great new walking path at the First Federal SportsPlex that I really enjoy using and there is the Greenway in Branford for both bikes (don't forget your helmet) and foot traffic. If you have questions about how to get started on a walking program or about implementing a Worksite Wellness Program, please contact Mary Ward, Healthy Communities, Healthy People Coordinator with the Suwannee County Health Department at Mary_Ward@doh.state.fl.us or 386362-2708 extension 259. To learn more about the Governor's Council on Physical Fitness, visit www.healthyfloridians.com.NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENTFebruary and March: Healthy Floridians Months Beginning on Sunday, February 21 at 9:45 a.m., associate pastor, the Rev. Dr. David A. Dean, will teach a bible course from his book Resurrection Hope. The class is open to everyone in the area desiring to have a deeper understanding of the resurrection of mankind at the second coming of Jesus Christ. "To teach, preach, and understand resurrection is the only hope for this age," said Dean. The book is offered free to all who attend. The study will focus on the centrality of the resurrection and illuminate the great doctrines of scripture that Advent Christians share with other evangelicals. "This is a wonderful opportunity for the class to explore sound, biblical teaching without obligation or having to join a church," said Pastor Paul Bertolino. Dr. Dean, is the former director of The Center for Advent Christian Studies at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Further information is available by calling the Pastor at 386-6581048. The church is located at 17214 89th Road.
