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.

way of a video surveillance camera

bomb and demanded Oxycontin

In celebration of Black

the Black History
Extravaganza last
Saturday. This event was
presented by the African

Scott, worked diligently
to provide a wholesome,
family-focused event.
A highlight of the event
was a display and
presentation by Dr.
Norman Jackson, a long-
time educator as well as a
graduate of Tuskegee
University. Dr. Jackson
has spent many years


studying and presenting
on these pioneers of
aviation who served our
country in combat.
Through this presentation,
guests were introduced to
much of the rich history of
the Tuskegee Airmen. The
Tuskegee Airmen were
dedicated, determined
young men who enlisted
to become America's first
black military airmen, at a
time when there were
many people who thought
that black men lacked
intelligence, skill, courage
and patriotism. Mayor
Sonny Nobles was on
hand for this presentation,
introducing Dr. Jackson

OUR VIEW
Suwannee Democrat


In season:


Politics
For political junkies, the season starts to-
day sort of. This is the last day candi-
dates can qualify for the upcoming city
elections by petition. They still have until
March 19 to decide if they're going to run,
but after today they'll have to pay a fee
rather than collect voters' signatures (25
are required for city races) to get their
names on the ballot.
The fee is nominal $50 but that's not
the point. Qualifying by petition is some-
thing of a tradition in small towns. Some-
thing of a ritual as well. It's a chance for
candidates to meet potential voters in a
more relaxed setting and learn the lay of
the political landscape. And it's really the
only way to go. Supervisor of Elections
Glenda Williams says that in her 13 years
in office, no city or county candidate has
put his or her name on the ballot by sim-
ply shelling out the cash.
So the field is likely set for the May 4
city elections. And what a field it is. The
offices of mayor and city clerk, as well as
three council seats are up for grabs. No-
body's running unopposed and one crowd-
ed race (city clerk) had five folks compet-
ing as of press time.
Should be a good show, if you like that
sort of thing.
We do. And we'll be pleased to keep you
posted on all the latest happenings. Com-
ing soon: our candidate questionnaires, in
which city office-seekers respond to a set
series of queries on issues of local con-
cern. Then, just before the onset of early
voting (which begins April 19), we'll
make our choices and offer public en-
dorsements of those we think best quali-
fied in any given race. That should spark a
lively enough debate.
(Note: County races are beginning to
simmer as well, but that's another story.)


BIBLE VERSE
Jesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all
your heart and with all your soul and with all
your mind. This is the first and greatest com-
mandment. And the second is like it: Love your

I know that it has been
some time since I last wrote a
Chief's Chat, but I guess I
sort of got caught up in all of *
the activities at the end of last
year and the beginning of this
year. I know that everyone *
has a lot of "stuff' going on,
but I did want to make sure
that the parents know that the
3rd Annual Teen Police Acad- BY BUDDY
emy is right around the cor- Live Oak Chief
ner. It will begin on March 18
on Thursday nights from 6-8
and end with a graduation on May 13. If you are not
aware of this program, it is a dynamic approach to ed-
ucate our youth about law enforcement and the entire
criminal justice system. The students will be faced with
a scenario crime with a crime scene and work the entire
crime scene from start to finish ending up in the court-
room trying the crime in front of the Judge and jury. We
have had some great success with the last academies
and this is really one of the highlights of our year. The
students need to be age 13-18, and applications can be
picked up at the Suwannee Middle School or the
Suwannee High School. If parents home school their
children, applications are available at the Live Oak Po-
lice Department, or if you have any questions about the

hotline is open 24/7.
Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak your mind!

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

Congratulations to the African American Develop-
ment Council for the Black History play and dinner held
at the Live Oak Church of God on Thursday evening.
Yvonne Scott, president of that group, worked tirelessly
to put this all together. The Black History play written
and directed by Dr. Phillip Combs, was excellent and
the cast of actors and singers came from many churches
all over the community, in love. The onlookers were
captivated by the excellence of the evening. Thank you.
MEN
To those complaining about the City Council negoti-
ating a contract with OMI, you need to look into the nuts
and bolts of the package and you will learn that OMI is
the best deal the city has ever made. Been there, done
that. Thank you.
MEN
My point is concerning the cartoon that is under the
Rant & Rave on Friday, Feb. 19. This cartoon is very
distasteful. How the board of the Suwannee Democrat
could put this in there, I have no idea. Something needs
to be done, and something needs to be apologized. This
cartoon is just awful. My subscription to the Democrat
is in jeopardy right now and I have had it for 10 years,
but somebody needs to do something about this car-
toon.

With the elections coming up and all the different
people running for different offices, what I would like to
see in the newspaper and these people speak about, is
their experience. I appreciate the fact that some of them


C e 9 academy email me at
hief s williamsb@liveoakpd.org or
give me a call at 386-364-
C hat 7950. This is my office num-
ber, I will be glad to answer
any questions.
There are other activities go-
ing on with the Live Oak Po-
lice Department, the national
"Click it or Ticket" campaign
WILIAMS will begin March 1, this will be
of Police an enforcement wave for safe-
ty belt and other traffic viola-
tions. I hope that at the end of
this campaign I can report that the citizens in Live Oak
and Suwannee County do a great job in wearing their
seatbelts. I am asking that parents, please take extra
precautions with your children and make sure the prop-
er restraints are used, they don't get a choice and rely
on us as parents to make sure they are safe.
The "Chief's Reading Patrol" has started to all
kindergarten and 1st grade students, reading about bul-
lying and the consequences associated with bullying.
This will take about two months to complete, but I am
serious when I say "children make me smile." I along
with several officers on the force take part in this effort.
I am proud to serve you the citizens and appreciate
living in the "Greatest Place on Earth."

are lifelong residents, that they have been blessed to be
able to have generation after generation here and that
they are involved in the churches, that it important, but
that is not the issue. I want the best person for the job,
and if that is Mr. Smith from California, then so be it. So
tell us what your job qualifications are, not so much
about your personal life. This is a small town so every-
body knows about the personal things. And I really en-

If Councilman Stewart wants to resolve the Public
Works situation why didn't he put it on the ballot to de-
cide. Afraid you might not get the answer you want.

I'm writing this "Rave" to thank everyone who
stopped to ask if I was okay when I had a flat tire last
Tuesday evening. I was parked at the intersection of Rt
250 and 251, just west of Dowling Park, for about an
hour and at least 10 vehicles stopped to ask if I was
warm enough, if I needed help, or if I just wanted them
to wait with me until a mechanic arrived. I appreciate
everyone's concern and it made me feel better knowing
so many people were willing to lend a helping hand to a
stranded stranger. THANK YOU from Theresa, the
woman in the white Camry.

Don't give me any feel good things to do. If it is not
financially viable to recycle, don't do it.

Zone 3 runs from Little River
Spring to the County Road 340
Bridge at Rock Bluff. This 23-mile
segment is an idle-speed, no-wake
zone as long as the Suwannee River
is at 24 feet or more above mean sea
level at the Branford gauge.
The FWC activated restrictions in
this zone Feb. 15.

As river falls at Branford,


boating restrictions eased


Continued From Page 7A

Branford," said Capt.
Roy Brown, area super-
visor at the FWC's Lake
City office.
"Zones 4 and 5 are still
idle-speed, no-wake,"
Brown said, "and we still
have officers patrolling
that area to enforce the
boating restrictions."
Zone 4 runs from the
C.R. 340 Bridge at Rock
Bluff to one mile below
the Fowler Bluff boat
ramp. Zone 5 is a 32-
mile segment, extending
from River Rise in
O'Leno State Park west
to the confluence of the
Suwannee River. The
FWC activated the zone
on Jan. 29, when the
Santa Fe River reached
17 feet on the Three


Rivers gauge, where
flood stage is 19 feet.
"The water levels on
both rivers are going
down slowly," Brown
said. "But it may take a
while longer before we
can deactivate these
zones."
An idle-speed, no-
wake zone means a ves-
sel must proceed at a
speed no greater than
what is required to main-
tain steerageway and
headway. At no time is
any vessel required to
proceed so slowly that
the operator is unable to
control it or anything it
may be towing.
The Suwannee and
Santa Fe rivers are divid-
ed into five flood zones.
The other three zones
are:

GAMETIME


An Army of Two: The 40th Day


By Cody Webb
Back when the first
Army of Two came out, co-
op games weren't nearly as
popular as they are today.
While Army of Two helped
to contribute some of the
co-op standards that we
have today, the rest of the
game was a little bit under-
whelming. The team at EA
Montreal has spent their
time improving on the po-
tential the first game had,
and now they have released
the sequel: Army of Two:
The 40th Day. The 40th
Day starts with a lot of
promise: returning merce-
naries Rios and Salem are
in the middle of a simple
mission in Shanghai when
it is invaded by a private
military force. The duo are
caught in the middle of
Shanghai's destruction and
their objective becomes to
escape the collapsing city
in one piece.
Unfortunately, this is
where the story starts to
derail. Instead of making
escape and survival the
main focus, the story is put
into radio logs and into


separate "Save the
Hostages" missions. This
makes the story seem dis-
jointed and when the game
throws a moral choice at
you, the emotional impact
it could've had is dimin-
ished. As a result, the sto-
ry's biggest feat is bringing
the duo's frat boy talk
down to a minimum. While
the plot remains a low
point, the gunplay has im-
proved between games.
The cover system is still
touchy, but it's nowhere
near as iffy as it was in the
first game. Guns perform
their jobs well and the myr-
iad of customization op-
tions for them are definite-
ly a high point for any gun
junkie. The relatively tight
controls have one rather ir-
ritating annoyance, howev-
er: the button to run and the
button to revive a downed
teammate are one and the
same. This leads to players
accidentally dashing away
from their buddy or per-
forming a needless action
roll while their friend is
slowly dying. While this
isn't a gamebreaker, it's

certainly something that
should've been addressed
during development.
The graphics are pretty
good, a little more average
than some of the games
that are currently out, but
they suffice. They aren't
ugly by any means, they
just don't compliment the
boring and seen-them-be-
fore locations. Unfortu-
nately, the rest of the levels
just can't match the open-
ing's intensity.
While the single-player
campaign starts with a
bang and ends with a fiz-
zle, the multiplayer does its
best to pick up the slack.
Players should definitely
try out the Extraction
mode, which tasks them
with defending a location
from waves of enemies. I
realize this is starting to
become a standard with co-
op shooters, but with the
full complement of play-
ers, it can be fun for hours
on end. It's a shame EA
didn't take the chance to
implement some sort of
ranking system or progres-
sive stats. Unlockable re-

wards, like outfits or guns
and gun additions, would
have done a world of good
for The 40th Day. Unfortu-
nately, they didn't even in-
clude the single-player's
weapon customization sys-
tem! Players are stuck with
preset weapon sets and
none of the options present
in the campaign. The most
depressing part of all of
this is that you can see the
game has potential. You
can tell that it's there, but it
is buried under question-
able choices. If you didn't
enjoy the first Army of
Two, it's a pretty sure bet
you won't enjoy this one. I
give it a C; hopefully if EA
decides to try another
Army of Two, they'll give
it the polish that this one
needed.

Oak.


Collision with


semi claims a life


Staff
A St. Augustine woman
was killed in St. Johns
County Tuesday when she
ran a stop sign and was
struck by a semi tractor-
trailer driven by a Live Oak
man, according to Florida
Highway Patrol reports.
The Live Oak man and his
passenger James C. Lash-
ley, 56, and James C. Lash-
ley, 20 were unhurt.
Bonnie K. Fowler, 68,
was westbound on Don
Manuel Road when she
failed to stop at the inter-


section of CR 13, said
FHP. The front left of
Fowler's 2006 Toyota
Corolla was struck by the
right rear tire of the semi's
trailer, reports show. The
Corolla rotated clockwise
and overturned after strik-
ing the treeline, said FHP,
ejecting Fowler, who was
pronounced dead at the
scene.
Alcohol was not a factor,
say reports.
Fowler and James C.
Lashley were not wearing
seatbelts, FHP said.

Ruling on cause awaited

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gafInews.com
JASPER Lorrie
Joeris, 42, died Sunday
night after receiving a
gunshot wound to the
head, according to
Hamilton County
Sheriff Harrell Reid.
Joeris was a North
Hamilton Elementary
School fourth-grade
teacher.
A 9-1-1 call reporting Lorrie Joeris
the incident was made
to the Sheriff's Office at 7:29 p.m. Sunday
from 132 10th Street SW in Jasper by a
family member, Reid said.
Joeris was still alive when she was taken
by ambulance from the scene, said Reid. She
was later pronounced dead by emergency
personnel en route to Shands UF.
Joeris and husband Leonard "Lennie"
Joeris had just finished taking a walk near
their home when the incident occurred,
reports indicate. Returning home from the
walk, Leonard told authorities he heard a
loud noise and looked behind him to see
that his wife had been shot. Lorrie
customarily brought a .38 caliber pistol with
her on walks as protection. Beyond that,
details are unclear, said Reid.
The Florida Department of Law
Enforcement has been called in to assist
with the investigation. The Sheriff's Office
and FDLE are currently waiting on a report
by the medical examiner's office in
Jacksonville and results from other tests,
Reid said.
Lorrie and Leonard Joeris have two
teenage children, Westen James Joeris and
Elizabeth Joeris.

A BIG HONOR FOR A Quarter Horse racing


YOUNG RACER

David Reutimann Most
Likely to Succeed Award
at Ocala Speedway re-
cently. The award goes
to a racer selected per-
sonally by Reutimann
and Ocala Speedway
owner Michael Peters.
Walker, 13, earned his
first win in the Gladiator
Division in 2009, and
caught the eye of World
of Outlaws driver Danny

impressed with Devin's
skills that he immediate-

By Stephenie Livingston
JASPER A long
awaited form of
entertainment and
industry may soon be
coming to Hamilton
County Quarter Horse
Racing.
The owner of the
proposed Hamilton
Downs has received from
the Florida Division of
Pari-Mutuel Wagering a
permit for Quarter Horse
racing, state records show.
Hamilton Downs is
proposed by Richmond
Entertainment, which also
owns the Hamilton Jai
Alai and Poker facility in
Jasper located near
Interstate 75 in Jasper.
That facility opened in
2005. The horse track will
be built on separate land
located on CR 143, just off


1-75 in Jennings, according
to County Coordinator
Danny Johnson.
It has been reported
that the proposed design
of the track will include a
one-mile track with a 550-
yard chute for Quarter
Horse races and a seating
area capable of holding
3,000 patrons.
Glenn Richards, who
heads Richmond
Entertainment, wasn't
immediately available for
comment.
Any persons who feel
they will be affected by
this permitting decision
may petition the
Department of Business
and Professional
Regulation.
Quarter Horse racing
was last held in Florida in
1991 at Pompano Park.

a wooded area west of
the crash.
The three were locat-

city has decided to renego-
tiate the $2.4 million dollar
pact.
"But how in the world do
you know if you can save
money if you don't go out
for bids," Bennie Thomas
asked.
To which Ed Rewis re-
sponded: "We got all the
records, we know what we
spent, we know what they
spent, if we look at the two
we know what kind of deal
we're getting."
Rewis was appointed as
chairman of the city's ne-
gotiating team.
Stewart questioned
Thomas, saying that if
Thomas had not made a
previous motion to negoti-
ate with OMI, the council
could have gone another
direction.
Thomas said he never
used the term "good faith"
in his motion.
"Then what was the mo-
tion made for," Stewart
asked Thomas.


"That we can negotiate a
new contract and if we're
not satisfied with it we can
go out for bids," said
Thomas.
That motion was made
several weeks ago.
"But if we're not negoti-
ating in good faith then
we're not saving the people
money," Stewart replied.


"How in the world do
you know if you can save
money if you don't go out
for bids," Thomas asked.
Stewart said that since
Thomas made the motion,
and the council passed it,
the city has to negotiate.
"If you wouldn't have
made that motion, Bennie,

out for bids," said Stewart.
OMI negotiator Grega St.
John said that to expect
OMI to lay all their cards
on the table and then say
"thanks" and go out for bids
anyway is not fair.
"I should just go write
my competitor a letter and
say 'hey, here's our price',"
said St. John. "It's not good
faith whatsoever ... and if
we're not really negotiating
then put it out to bid."
John Hale was asked by
Stewart to serve on the
committee but declined,
saying it wouldn't be fair to
the city or OMI.
"I won't serve on it be-
cause I can honestly say I
couldn't negotiate in good
faith," said Hale. "Once
you get to that point of
serving on the committee
then I think you've got an
obligation. If we start good


faith negotiations you
would expect that's exactly
what it is, good faith negoti-
ations. You expect we reach
some type of an agreement
... and I would rather do
bids."
St. John asked Hale if the
negotiations took place,
"what is going to make you
decide to push the contract
through."
"Cost," Hale responded.
Councilman David
Burch, said that money isn't


the "only issue."
"Is it important, absolute-
ly, but you just can't go into
a contract on money," said
Burch. "There's so many
more issues there than just
get the lowest price."
Burch said some of those
issues are productivity and
experience.
The committee is expect-
ed to release its decision to
the full council at its next
scheduled meeting in
March.

Stop Covering

Up Those

Ugly Teeth

Are you still covering your mouth or just too plain embarrassed to smile?
Keep reading, because I've got a suggestion to help you improve your
smile in just 2 weeks, and it's pain-free!

Open spaces, crooked teeth, and even stains can affect the way people feel
about themselves. It's a proven fact that low self-esteem often leads to
emotional conditions such as depression and anti-social behavior. This
even has potential to escalate into medical conditions. People who are not
happy with their smiles suffer more in these areas than people who are
confident with their smiles.
As a doctor, I say, "Try veneers!" A veneer is a very
small, contact-lens-size shell that is bonded to your
natural tooth. With advances in technology, we can
now offer drill-free veneers to some patients. This
means we don't need to remove any of your natural
tooth structure for the veneers. We like to call them
"pain-free veneers"!

This simple, yet powerful little veneer can produce potent results for self-
esteem (say that five times fast!)! Veneers are fast, reliable, and time-
tested to make beautiful smiles, and the price could surprise you, too!
Check out this affordable little miracle today. And, to make it more
enticing, check out the deals below!

Jefferson enters city clerk race


Continued From Page 1A

of Live Oak.
"I am seeking to be elect-
ed as your next full-time
city clerk," said Jefferson.
Jefferson said he be-
lieves that what folks look
for and want, is a city clerk
who is available at City
Hall when needed.
"Many of you are proba-
bly wondering why I stress
the point 'full-time' city
clerk," said Jefferson. "The
elected position requires
full-time attention from the
person that is elected to it.
The clerk position handles
far more than recording
minutes and selling burial
plots."
Jefferson said he has re-
searched the position and
knows it to be "a very ex-
tensive job. I understand
why our forefathers be-
lieved the position to be an
elected (p,,iiiiin) when
they established the city
charter of Live Oak."
Jefferson said he feels
qualified to be the next city
clerk because of his educa-
tion and work experience.
"Because of this and my
ability to interact with all
people, I feel qualified,"
said Jefferson.
He is currently the pastor
of the New National Grove


Missionary Baptist Church.

Experience:
Three years of training
at the University of Ten-
nessee, Knoxville.
Pellissippi State Com-
munity College, one year
data entry.
Licensed insurance
agent.
Suwannee County
Planning and Zoning
Board, 16 years. Four years
as president.
Secretary of Brothers of
Unity Organization.
Voters League member.
Boys & Girls Club
board member.
Former president of the
African American Devel-
opment Council.
Second vice-president
of the Congress of Christ-
ian Education.
Vice-president of the
Suwannee County Ministe-
rial Alliance.
Certified automobile
salesman.
Over 20 years of fast
food management experi-
ence.

Campaign pledges:
I believe that our citi-
zens must always be well
informed about what's af-
fecting their livelihood."


Family reflects on loss after fire
Continued From Page 1A

to an electrical fire Sunday in the kitchen.
"It started on the countertop in the kitchen in the area
of some appliances that were plugged in," said Suwannee
County Fire/Rescue Chief Charlie Conner.
"What the fire didn't get, soot got, what soot didn't get,
water got," said Danielle Brewer.
"We cried a good bit Sunday," said Jim Brewer. "But
we have finally accepted it."
Danielle Brewer said every so often it hits them some
of the things that were lost.
"We were driving and I remembered that the baby
blankets were burned up," she said. "Yeah, we cried over
baby blankets."
The Brewers have four kids: Alex, 10; Elizabeth, 6;
Madilynn, 2 and Christian, 10 months.
"You can tell he's thinking about it a lot," Danielle
Brewer said of Alex. "He gets real quiet and he usually
isn't. You know he's trying to process it."
She said Madilynn has had a sudden attachment with a
doll, which she won't put down.
The Brewers are thankful they weren't home when the
fire began sometime around 12:52 p.m., when fire/rescue
was dispatched. They were all spending the day out, shop-
ping and checking out rabbits at a local roadside vendor.
The Brewers have received some local help. The
schools gave the kids some clothes, and the Red Cross
paid for three nights at a local lodging facility. But they
still need help. Jim and Danielle Brewer only have two
sets of clothes left, they are about out of funds and have
to use what they have to pick up the tab on the room af-
ter the third day, which ended Wednesday. An account
has been set up at Capital City Bank in Branford under
the name James and Danielle Brewer. They are asking
anyone that can help to please make donations to that ac-
count.
Conner said Stations 1,2,41,51,42 and 43 and a total of
12 firefighters utilized 1,000 gallons of water to combat
the fire.
"Available was 15,000 gallons in the fire theater," said
Conner.
The home was not insured, according to the Brewers.

"I believe that local gov-
ernment should be more
hands on with citizens."

"I believe people perish
because of the lack of infor-
mation."

"I love sharing valuable
information with others."

"I want to be helpful to
every citizen."

Jefferson said if elected
he will be a hands-on city
clerk who will share any in-
formation he has.
"Interaction with the pub-
lic is one of my strong
points," said Jefferson.
Jefferson has three chil-
dren, Reginald, Carla and
Jasmine, all of Live Oak.
He is also raising a niece,
Akijhitae McCray, 12.
"As you see me walking
through the neighborhoods

said Jefferson. "Please

Hale seeks re-election to LO City Council


Continued From Page 1A

"As a councilman, my
feelings are that I represent
the people who put me in
office, not the city," Hale
said of his philosophy of
government.
Hale said he has always
voted with the best inter-
ests of the people in mind.
"Every budget I have
voted to spend as low as
possible to keep our mill-
age rate down," said Hale.
"I have voted against the
frivolous spending on
things like the controver-
sial SUV."
Hale said in these rough
economic times, city offi-
cials need to remember
who they are working for.
"This particular time we
need to get the things we
need, not the things we
want," said Hale.
Hale stressed that he has
always been for going out
for bids on the OMI con-
tract.
"I'm still opposed to
OMI performing our city
services," said Hale. "An


example is garbage pickup
has went from twice a
week to once but the rate
has gone up. I don't like
that they're proceeding on
a new contract without go-
ing out for bids."

Growth
Hale said the US 129/I-
10 quadrant is the future.
"The key right now to
development in our city is
expanding the north end of
town," said Hale. "All de-
velopment that comes in is
going to come in to that
area."
Haled said he is proud to
have voted for a new water
and well site for the north
end that "when complete
will help us develop the
north end of town."

Other Hale
accomplishments
"I made the motion the
mayor suggested to give
the money back to the resi-
dents on a gas rebate and it
came at a good time for the
residents."

stitution

pansion

"Every politician says
they want to do something
for the youth, but we did it
in this term and I believe it
will continue," said Hale.
Hale hopes you come out
and support him and keep
him in office May 4.
"There are times when
what's best for the city isn't
what's best for the people,
and the people have to
come first," said Hale.

Defense witness takes the stand


Continued From Page 1A

patient like Nathan Hannon
who suffered from acute
hydrocephalus when he ar-
rived at the hospital the
morning of Oct. 29, 1999.
In his redirect, Shands
attorney John Jopling,
asked Davis whether most
hospital transfer patients
were considered "emer-
gent."
Davis replied, "Any pa-
tient that was considered
out of our scope of work
who would need to be
transferred to another facil-
ity would or could some-
times be considered an
emergency, she explained.
However, Hannon was
never admitted into the
emergency room that day.
Next to take the stand
was Dr. Kerry Krone, a
neurological surgeon from
Cincinnati Children's Hos-
pital, who specialized in
neuro-pediatric surgery. He
testified for the defense.
Krone explained that in a
patient like Nathan Han-


non, with a Dandy-Walker
cyst, the logistics of care
and treatment were differ-
ent than those involving a
patient without such a con-
dition in hydrocephalus.
"Forty percent of shunts
will malfunction in the first
year, and it is standard to
tell parents that shunts will
fail," he said. "Usually we
say frequent follow-up."
Although the question of
follow-up did come up
briefly in the case Monday,
the question of yearly fol-
low-up in the Hannon case
had already been ruled out.
"It's not uncommon for
shunts to malfunction,"
Krone said, "and an un-
treated shunt malfunction
will most commonly result
in death."
There are signs to look
for when a shunt malfunc-
tions, which usually in-
clude: "headache, vomiting
and changes in mood
and/or performance," Kro-
ne said.
"We do not tell parents,"
however, Krone said, "that


with the onset of a
headache that their child
may die within hours."
He said generally, death
doesn't occur that quickly
with a shunt malfunction.
Krone said that it is nec-
essary for doctors to have
previous CT scans, usually
from two points in time, to
notice differences in a pa-
tient's brain activity over
time. Neither the doctor in
Colorado, nor Dr. Bob
Spendell at Shands had ad-
ditional CT scans on
Nathan Hannon to compare
during their evaluations,
according to previous testi-
mony.
Krone explained that
pressing a patient's shunt
neck valve only showed
that the shunt was working
"proximally" (in the brain),
but is not a good indication
that the dismal end (end
point in the lower chest) is
working OK.
Yvette Hannon testified
earlier that on Oct. 28,
1999, she had checked her
son's neck valve and it was


working properly, the day
before he died.
Krone said, "If a patient
has had a shunt malfunction
historically they will pre-
sent in the same fashion as
they had before."
Nathan Hannon told his
mother that he didn't think
that it was "one of those
headaches," prior to his
death.
Krone testified that the
CT scan at Live Oak, and
even those earlier from
Colorado, "were consistent
with a shunt malfunction"
citing that fluid was present
near the brain stem where it
is typically not present in a
patient with a Dandy-Walk-
er cyst and existing shunt.
However, Krone pointed
out that Nathan Hannon's
case may have been differ-
ent.
"He was awake and talk-
ing, which is not typical
with someone in emer-
gency status or life-threat-
ening condition with a
shunt malfunction."
Hannon was discharged


from Colorado with "unde-
termined etiology" written
in his records, meaning
doctors could not give con-
clusive reason for his
headaches while on that
trip.
Regardless, Krone said,
"He needed follow-up for
his shunt. You need a shunt
series to determine whether
everything is OK or not."
Krone said, "I believe the
event that took Nathan
Hannon to the hospital in
Pueblo, Colorado was a re-
sult of a shunt malfunc-
tion."
The doctors there attrib-
uted it to altitude sickness,
as earlier pointed out in the
case.
"In my opinion the CT
scan from Colorado shows
that the shunt was not
working properly because
there is fluid present near
the center of the brain at the
spinal cord a cistern. It's
a subtle finding, I would
not expect the doctor to
have known that, but when
you see this it is an absolute
sign that (the shunt) is not
working properly."
Krone said the lack of
comparative film in Col-
orado may have attributed
to the doctors not being
able to pick up on that find-
ing. "It was the quiet before
the storm," he said. "That
shunt break moved Nathan
along the path of the un-
well. It was an event that
was already set in motion
and there was no way for
anyone to determine the
events to come and the
rapid speed at which they


occurred."
James W. Gustafson Jr.,
another Hannon attorney,
began his questioning of
Krone.
Krone explained that he
couldn't determine whether
"the day before or if months
earlier Nathan Hannon's
shunt officially malfunc-
tioned," however he said it
is highly probable that the
fracture occurred earlier.
He said, "Nathan Hannon
would have experienced a
series of problems if indeed
the shunt did malfunction in
Colorado."
He said, as far as he
knows (and from testimony
already presented), that
Nathan had no problems
from August 1999 to Octo-
ber 1999. He called it a
mystery.
"This is so different than
what we commonly see-
someone talking then with-
in 15 minutes they're in
cardiac arrest."
In a separate chest x-ray,
Krone pointed out a separa-
tion in the shunt tubing in
Nathan Hannon's chest. "I
really think this was a shunt
that had separated and fix-
ing it would have prevented
what happened."
Gustafson questioned
whether repeated CPR on
Nathan Hannon on Oct. 29,
1999 could be attributed to
the shunt separation.
"It's possible that the
shunt was separated as a re-
sult of CPR, but not proba-
ble," Krone said. "If any-
thing, the CPR could have
further separated an al-
ready small fracture."


Robbery suspect

found dead

in Micanopy by a member
of the maintenance staff.
"There was nothing sus-
picious and there was no
type of crime scene," May-
nard said Thursday.
He said Skinner's body
was sent to the medical ex-
aminer's office in Alachua
County.
"The autopsy was con-
ducted and came back un-
remarkable, which in other
words means no immediate
cause of death is known,"
said Maynard.
He said the exact cause
of death should be known
when toxicology results
come back, which could
take four to six months.
According to Lake City
Police Department's public
information officer, Sgt.
John Blanchard, Skinner
walked into the Walgreens
around 8:30 p.m. Saturday
and confronted pharmacist
Eric Egelund.
"Mr. Egelund stated that
(Skinner) walked to the
counseling window, got his
attention and stated that he
had a bomb," Blanchard
said in a press release. "Mr.
Egelund stated to officers

that he thought this was a
joke, but (Skinner) repeat-
ed 'I have a bomb.'"
Skinner then demanded
that Egelund give "me all
of your Oxycontin."
Egelund used his safe
keys and took five bottles
of the drug, each containing
about 100 pills, out of the
store's safe and handed
them to Skinner. Blanchard
said Skinner put the bottles
"in the pockets of his navy
blue" hoodie type sweater
and walked out of the store.
Maynard said that Skin-
ner stole a vehicle in Co-
lumbia County before rob-
bing the Walgreens. After
the robbery, Maynard said
Skinner then drove to the
Micanopy hotel with "sev-
eral" others, some of whom
have been identified and
some who have not, ac-
cording to Maynard. He
said the vehicle has since
been returned to its rightful
owner.
Maynard would not say
if the Oxycontin pills were
located in the room with
Skinner due to an ongoing
investigation. However he
did say that authorities
have yet "to recover all the
narcotics.

ward this moment," said Travis
Laxton after winning a state title.
Joe McMillan also won a state
title, while Jamie Alvarado, Jacob
Wainwright, Aaron Fountain, Josh
Key, Logan Register and John
Boatright all placed in the top 16.
"Going into the state tourna-
ment we were only honorable
mentions. This did not sit well
with the boys nor myself," said
coach Laxton. "They just turned a
negative into a positive and they
believed they could win it all."
Coach Laxton said his boys
fought for the wins and would not
let up. "You could see they want-
ed it more and more," said Lax-
ton. "It was right up until the last
whistle blew, and they still be-
lieved that they could win."
McMillan won 6-2 and Laxton
won 8-1.

Ax Men

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
The front
pages of the
Democrat may '
be filled with Ax
Men stories, but
Operation Wild
is where it's at.
As Suwannee County grows
so does the celebrity status of
its faithful.
Clinton Bean, nicknamed
"Bean," is one of the regulars
on Operation Wild, which can
be seen on Planet Green on
Friday nights at 10 o'clock.
Tales of the Highway patrol?
No. Tales of the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Commission?
Yes.
Clint is a 1996 Suwannee
High graduate who was co-
captain of the Bulldog
baseball team. Clint traded his
baseball cap for a cowboy hat
and the rest is history. He is a
state of Florida Wildlife
Officer. The stories that have
aired feature Bean saving a
two-pound mutt from
highway traffic with a can of
Vienna sausages to playing
bodyguard for a 500 pound
tranquilized bear. Not many
people growing up in Live
Oak have had the opportunity
to save a whale, but Bean has.
Not all is heroic or on the
light side however. Bean has
investigated gunshots in the
middle of the night, chased
poachers and traveled at
extreme boat speeds through
alligator infested swamps. In
his not-for-TV exploits he has
captured a 9 1/2 foot python
alive. The snake thing is no
longer an urban myth. He has
also killed a 379-pound hog.
Not hogzilla, but it puts Porky
to shame.
Clinton is also a regular on
the FWC praise an employee
site. Perhaps it's his country
upbringing, but he has a laid-
back common sense attitude
towards law enforcement. It
comes through when faced
with tenuous situations during
the more hardcore episodes.
I have no idea how long
Operation Wild will run but it
is certainly must see TV. You
would certainly be proud of
our hometown boy.

Suwannee tennis is back and looking good


Continued From Page 1B

Gainesville Sun all area
team in 2009, as well as,
the Florida Times Union
tennis team. Sydnie is a
strong player and brings a
lot of depth to the girls
team this year. Playing at
number two is returned,
senior Katherine Haney.
Katherine has improved
her game so much this
year and Suwannee will be
looking to Katherine for
some very important
matches at the number two
singles and number one
doubles positions. Number
three for Suwannee is
senior returned, Mary Beth
Finch. Mary Beth is a solid
player that is very serious
about her game and is
determined to bring home
another district
championship for
Suwannee. Mary Beth will
play with Lindsey Garland
in number two doubles this
year. Number four is being
played by sophomore
Garland. Lindsey was on
the team last year, but
didn't see much playing
time, but this year will
change all of that. Lindsey
is a talented tennis player
that will definitely help
Suwannee, not only in
singles, but in doubles, as
well. Number five is junior
returned, Ashton
Bracewell. Ashton is a
strong tennis player that
will bring experience to
the number five position
that will assist Suwannee
throughout the season.
Suwannee girls bring
three new faces to the
team: sophomore Laura-
Kaitlyn Boatright,
freshman Taylor
Henderson and Lindsey
Brothers. These girls will
add depth to the team this
year and will play every
opportunity presented to
gain experience for the
coming years.

Suwannee Boy's return
in the # 1 position,
Senior Justin Garland is
a four-year starter for
Suwannee and has always
played an important part in
the success of Suwannee
tennis. Justin will also be
playing the number one
doubles team with T.J.
Vickers. Number two is
senior Jabe Weaver. Jabe is
returning with two years


experience and brings a lot
of depth and wisdom to
this team. Jabe will also be
assisting in the number
two doubles position.
Number three is senior
Tyler Hadden. Tyler is a
two-year starter and brings
much enthusiasm to
Suwannee tennis. Tyler is
an awesome player and it
is always exciting to watch
Tyler play tennis. Number
four is senior Marshall
Boggus. Marshall is a
natural athlete who brings
so much to the boys team.
His desire to win was
demonstrated in a clutch
match victory against
rival, Rickards High,
yesterday. Boggus will
also team up with Weaver
in the number two doubles
team this year. Number
five this year will be
senior T.J. Vickers. T.J. is
a two-year returned who
brings leadership, as well
as, talent, to this team. T.J.
is an asset to the number
five position, as well as the
number one doubles
partner with Justin
Garland.
New on the boys team
this year are sophomores
Rhett Barker and Drew
Land and freshman
Zachary Wiggins. These
young men will definitely
play a huge part in
rebuilding this team as we
will lose five senior boys
from our team at the end
of this season. I look for
these boys to play as much
as possible to gain
experience to move into
starting positions next
season.
Coaching the varsity
boys and girls tennis at
SHS this year is Kim
Boatright. Although
Boatright is new as the
head coach at SHS, she is
definitely not new to
Suwannee County,
coaching or tennis.
Boatright has been
involved in the tennis
program at SHS for the
past four years as her son,
John-Walt, played in the
number one position all
four years. Coach
Boatright has been
teaching and coaching a
variety of sports in
Suwannee County for over
30 years.

Boatright has been

years and has enjoyed
coaching soccer and
softball, refereeing

A box of candy, a beautiful
card, dinner out or a heartfelt
gift? How did you celebrate
Valentine's Day with that special
someone? The National Retail
Federation estimates that
Americans spent approximately
$17 billion on the Valentine
holiday. Why all the fuss?
According to Dr. Gary
Chapman's book "The Five Love
Languages", love is an emotional
need, and what we must learn
about love is how to express it in


Renewal with Bishop Carl Thomas is
coming to Live Oak on Friday, January
29, 2010!
The gathering will take place at the

God located on Duval Street, at 7 p.m.

pentecostal preaching!


Heart

Matters
By Angie Land


a language that the other person
understands. According to Chapman,
there are five basic love languages:

Words of Affirmation: this can
mean words of sincere praise for results
and efforts as well as words of affection
that express positive thoughts toward
someone as a person. "You are such a
great friend", "Your eyes are beautiful",
or "I know that didn't turn out like you
hoped, but I am proud of how hard you
tried."
Quality Time: giving a portion of
time and your undivided attention is a
powerful communicator of love to
another person because our lives are so
busy. This doesn't mean simply being in
the same room at the same time, but has
everything to do with togetherness,
making sure the other person feels like
they are the focus of your attention.
Receiving Gifts: gifts are visible
evidence of emotional love. Perhaps this
explains the billions spent on Valentine's
Day. The Greek word from which we
get our English word gift is "charis"
which means grace or undeserved. The
beauty of gifts is that they don't have to
be fancy or expensive to be valuable. A
gift says I care about you and I think
you are important. That is the real
treasure.
Acts of Service: Loving service is
an internally motivated desire to give
your energy for another. Just doing
something for someone, especially
something they want or need
accomplished is a powerful way to
communicate love. Like quality time, it
requires a portion of our life set aside


and donated for another, but acts
of service also allows them to be
free of a task or chore.
Physical Touch: Touching
is an emotionally powerful way
to communicate love. This is
why we love to give and receive
hugs and why a shoulder
massage relaxes us; touch
makes us feel loved and
accepted.

Although all of the five love
languages listed above are


enjoyable and pleasant, every
person has one or two of these that
makes them feel more loved than the
others, and by nature we speak that
language to others. If we enjoy gifts, we
will probably buy gifts for others. If we
need words of affirmation, we will
probably leave love notes and be very
encouraging verbally. The problem
comes when the other person doesn't
speak our language. We may be
speaking gifts, but they want quality
time. Or they may be doing acts of
service for us and we just want them to
say, "I love you".
We can learn to speak the language of
the other person if want them to feel
loved by us. We can usually determine
our own language by what we most
often do for another when we want to
show love to them, and to determine
other's language, we can ask their
preference and watch what they do for
others. This principle can be applied in
friendships and parent-child/teenager as
well as romantic relationships. Learn to
speak the language of those you love.
Because their heart matters!

Blessings, Angie

WIDOWS, ORPHANS AND AlIENS


IT IS A SAD FACT OF LIFE THAT THERE ARE
WIDOWS, ORPHANS AND ALIENS LIVING IN
OUR MIDST. WHAT NATION DOES NOT
HAVE THEM? NATURAL AND MAN-MADE
DISASTERS SUCH AS WAR, FAMINE AND
ECONOMIC UPHEAVAL CONTRIBUTE TO
THEIR SEEMINGLY ENDLESS NUMBERS. So
WHAT SHOULD OUR ATTITUDE BE TO THESE
UNFORTUNATE AND VULNERABLE ONES
AMONG US? SHOULD WE SIMPLY WISH
THEM LUCK, GIVE THEM A BLESSING AND
SEND THEM ON THEIR WAY, OR IS
SOMETHING MORE REQUIRED? GOD'S
WORD IS CLEAR ON THIS: WE ARE CALLED
TO HELP THE WIDOWS, ORPHANS AND
ALIENS AMONG US IN SO MANY PASSAGES
OF THE BIBLE THAT IT IS VIRTUALLY A
THEME OF BOTH THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT. THE ISRAELITES WERE
PAINFULLY AWARE OF THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF BEING FOREIGNERS
IN A STRANGE lAND, GIVEN THEIR CAPTIVITIES IN EGYPT AND BABYLON.
FURTHERMORE, THEIR EXPERIENCE IN WARRING WITH THEIR NEIGHBORS,
THEN AS NOW, HAS A TENDENCY TO CREATE EVEN MORE WIDOWS, ORPHANS
AND REFUGEES. THE COMMANDMENT TO HELP THE UNFORTUNATE AMONG
US COMES WITH A BLESSING AND A CURSE. THAT IS, WE ARE TOLD THAT WE
WILL BE BLESSED IF WE HELP THEM AND CURSED IF WE DON'T. WE SHOULD
HELP THE VULNERABLE, WHETHER THESE ARE WIDOWS AND ORPHANS, OR
THE HOMELESS OR JOBLESS IN OUR COMMUNITY.

Four days


in 0a


J-J-^A;J-IJ-L.1AlLM


EDITOR'S NOTE: Ray Kelley, pastor of the Live Oak Christian Church,
spent four days in Haiti last week (Feb 15-19). Kelley went to visit Me-
lio Jean, the pastor of Sonlight Christian Mission. Melio is a former
student of both Kelley and his wife Shirley and since 1999 the Kelleys
have been serving as his Forwarding Agents. Their responsibility is to
help raise money to support the mission. Melio's mission is in Go-
naives, north of Port-au-Prince and not destroyed by the earthquake.
As Kelley finds out, thousands of refuges from Port-au-Prince have
come to Gonaives. There are no camps for these people. They have
moved in with family and friends.


We enjoyed an evening meal with Melio, his wife Gyna and
their two children and made plans for the next three days.
We gave Melio the money we had carried in to help him
meet the needs of his people. This was one of the primary
reasons for the trip, since other means of fund transfer
(banks) were not working.

Gonaives was at the
Mission to see the
church building, the

struction, and founda-

By Dr. W. Ray Kelley
Live Oak Christian Church


ur church, Live Oak Christ-
ian Church (LOCC) has
supported missionary work
in Haiti for several years.
Presently, the church sup-
ports three mission works in
various parts of Haiti.
The January 2010 earthquakes in the country
of Haiti devastated one of the poorest countries
in the world and caused a major outpouring of
interest from the people of the United States.
My trip last week was to get current informa-
tion on one of the missions we support, Son-
light Christian Mission.

Day One, Monday
After a late Sunday drive to Fort Lauderdale,
I arose at 3 a.m. to make a 6 a.m. Monday
morning flight to Cap-Haitien, Haiti. Day One
had begun. Kenny, my traveling companion
from Virginia, and I deplaned from our 30-seat
prop plane during a light rain, which was to
continue as we drove through the muddy streets
of Cap-Haitien. Before we began the trip, how-
ever, we had to retrieve our checked bags and
locate our Haitian minister, Melio Jean. Fortu-
nately, his brother Inera was at the door among
a dozen other Haitians to greet and guide us.
Several young Haitian men clamoring to carry
our bags for a tip accompanied us on the short
walk to the car.
We traveled three and one half hours over
curvy, pot-holed mountain roads to make the
65-mile journey to the city of Gonaives. Along
the way we saw beautiful scenery, crowded rur-
al market places, extreme poverty, women car-
rying very large loads on their heads, and chil-
dren playing along the road side the usual dai-
ly life of Haiti.
After crossing the last mountain, the region
became very dry because of several months'
drought. Yet, traveling along the riverbank we
were forced to make several short detours be-
cause of the flood damage from the 2004 and
2008 hurricanes. As we reached Gonaives, we
could see that most of those mountains had
been deforested because the people had used
the trees for the production of charcoal, their
only fuel for heating and cooking.

Four days in ai


[learned one thing about my new enlightening discussions with the


friend Kenny as we traveled he loved
to take pictures. Since it was his first
trip to Haiti, he took over 1,500 pictures
with his digital camera. I also had time
to get current information about the min-
istry of Sonlight Christian Mission from
Melio, the Pastor and former student of
mine. Two floods from past hurricanes
had caused many challenges for the Mis-
sion, one of which was the destruction of
the concrete block security wall around
the three-acre Mission property. Melio
described the new stone wall being built
that is over 15 inches wide and six feet
high. Naturally, our first stop in Go-
naives was at the Mission to see the
church building, the new wall under
construction, and foundation for a
school.
We enjoyed an evening meal with Me-
lio, his wife Gyna and their two children
and made plans for the next three days.
We gave Melio the money we had car-
ried in to help him meet the needs of his
people. This was one of the primary
reasons for the trip, since other means of
fund transfer (banks) were not working.
Following dinner we checked into our
hotel for a good night's sleep. The hotel,
not up to American standards but very
good by Haitian standards, was clean,
inviting, and secured. We thanked God
for it.


leaders of two teams from the
United States: two Army soldiers
and two doctors. The soldiers each
headed a team responsible for assessing
the needs in Haiti, one concerning med-
ical needs and the other socio-economic.
They told us that 40,000-70,000 people
had moved from Port-au-Prince to Go-
naives (a city of about 250,000). These
refugees are not in camps but have been
absorbed into the homes of family and
friends who themselves are struggling to
provide the necessities of life. Unem-
ployment is at 50 percent. But God is
faithful. Three ministers in the city told
us that all of their congregations had in-
creased as new members joined their
churches.
The two American doctors had been in
Haiti for about a week and were greatly
disturbed by the poor conditions in the
local hospitals. They had attempted to
perform some needed surgeries, but be-
cause of the lack of an anesthesiologist
and other necessary supplies, they could
do very little. The leader of the Army
medical assess-
ment team of-
fered to help
them find the
needed person-
nel. No doctor
was available
because the


along with members of Melio's congre-
gation, went to the local hospital to dis-
tribute the gift bags. We found that not
only was there no doctor attending, but
also most of the nurses left the hospital
at noon to attend Carnival.
In the evening we worshipped with
the Sonlight Christian Mission congrega-
tion and also learned that the American
doctors had been able to do the surg-
eries.

Day Four, Thursday morning
We visited the Mission to see how the
work was progressing on the new securi-
ty wall, being very pleased with the
quality of construction and that many of
the laborers were members of the con-
gregation, providing them an income to
help support their families. That after-
noon we made the arduous return trip
back over the mountains to Cap-Haitien
to fly home Friday.
Friday evening I was back in Live


Oak, thankful that God had blessed me
with the opportunity to travel to Haiti to
render some help; and thankful to live in
our country and enjoy the ministry here.
We will continue to supply funds to the
Mission to help them lift the burden of
the influx of refugees and to build the
mission. The Haitian people are very
hard workers and their faith in God is
visible in their daily life. We plan, with
God's will, to make another trip in the
fall with a larger group to coordinate ef-
forts with Haitian Christians to assist in
needed projects, like repairing homes,
and to hold VBS for the children. Please
continue to pray for the people of Haiti.
If you would like to help in this vital
outreach to Haiti, you can send contribu-
tions to us at LOCC, Box 388, Live
Oak, FL 32064.

Live Oak Christian Church. You may

Kenny, left, and Dr. Kelley helped prepare 100 bags of basic items (tooth-
paste, candles and matches, soap, canned food, etc.) to distribute at
two local hospitals because patients must supply their own needs.

sion. Pastor Kelley was very pleased with the quality of construction and that

Day Two, Tuesday
As we drove around the city, we saw
that the earthquake had not produced
any damage in that area. We went to the
marketplace to pick up Gyna and the
supplies she had purchased to make gift
bags for hospital patients. During the af-
ternoon we prepared 100 bags of basic
items (toothpaste, candles and matches,
soap, canned food, etc.) to distribute at
two local hospitals because patients must
supply their own needs.
At the hotel Tuesday evening we had


only doctor in that hospital had been
killed in the earthquake in Port-au-
Prince. Day Two ended as we contem-
plated the plight of the people and the
ministry of God's Church.

Day Three, Wednesday
I spent time encouraging another for-
mer Haitian student of mine who also
pastors a church there. Around 800 peo-
ple had attended services in his church
for a government-called weekend of
"fasting and prayer." That afternoon we,

David H. Matier
Doctor of Pastoral C. H,... ,. *
dmatier@windstream.net

As a young man, while working in h
Lakeland, Fl., a Christian musician
gave me his testimony about having
made a promise. He had promised
God he was willing to sacrifice what ever
it would take to win his family to the Lord.
Shortly after that he said he was out
mowing on a tractor with his five or six
year old son on a bush-hog when his son
fell off of the tractor. He described the
scene as he assisted in picking up the
pieces of his own son; putting them into a
body bag. He went on to say that his
whole family came to know the Lord as a
result but at what a high personal cost for
him.
Many of you have probably heard
similar testimonies. But sometimes the
promises can cost one more than he
expects to pay. A good example of this is
found in Judges chapter 11.
"Jephthah vowed a vow unto the LORD,
and said, If thou shalt without fail deliver
the children of Ammon into mine hands,
Then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh
forth of the doors of my house to meet me,
when I return in peace from the children of
Ammon, shall surely be the LORD'S, and
I will offer it up for a burnt offering,"
(Judges 11:30, 31). Needless to say he
won the battle against the Ammonites and
we catch up with the narration in verse 34,
"And Jephthah came to Mizpeh unto his
house, and his daughter came out to meet
him..." (Judges 11:34-36).
It must have been a horrible sight to this
father to see his only child come out of his


4


A


house knowing that he had
made such a promise unto the
Lord. Yet, because God had
honored his commitment,
Jephthah kept his end of the
bargain. He told his daughter
about the vow he made and his
daughter, evidently a very


courageous woman, told him to go through
with his promise because God had
delivered him from the children of
Ammon. Jephthah, unlike so many men
today, was a man of honor. Even under
such harsh circumstances he kept his word
- his promise was real.
Jephthah went through with his promise
- "...her father...did with her according to
his vow which he had vowed..." (Judges
11:39). This has been an interesting
quandary for Bible students because God
had commanded that his people not make
human sacrifices and yet He seems to have
allowed this exception.
God's Word says (the 1611 King James
Version. If you have another version at
best you are using a commentary), "When
thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to
pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools:
pay that which thou has vowed. Better is
it that thou shouldest not vow, than that
thou shouldest vow and not pay. Suffer not
thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin;..."
(Ecclesiastes 5:4-6). Be very careful of
the promises you make to God. Watch out
for the things you say in the heat of the
moment! You love the Lord and you want
to accomplish great things for Him, but
THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK!

Ahighlight of the event was a display and presentation by Dr. Norman Jackson, a longtime educator as well as a graduate of Tuskegee University. Dr. Jackson has spent many years BLACKHISTORYMONTHKey tostudying and presenting on these pioneers of aviation who served our country in combat. Through this presentation, guests were introduced to much of the rich history of the Tuskegee Airmen. The Tuskegee Airmen were dedicated, determined young men who enlisted to become America's first black military airmen, at a time when there were many people who thought that black men lacked intelligence, skill, courage and patriotism. Mayor Sonny Nobles was on hand for this presentation, introducing Dr. Jackson and presenting him with a key to city as a token of appreciation and honor for his participation in this event and the preservation of history. This event also welcomed a group of thirty local students who were given a guided tour of the museum by the museum's director and curator, Randy Torrance. This group of students also viewed a video about George Carver Washington, a man who was about more than just peanuts. Between 75 and 100the cityguests attended this event. With events such as craft vendors, food vendors, a bounce-house for the children and drumming demonstrations, this event was a welcomed event to the calendar of events held at the Suwannee County Historical Museum. Hats off to the African American Development Council for a job well done in their efforts in spotlighting the accomplishments of local citizens of the African American community and for their work in preserving this rich part of Suwannee County history.

Our View is formed by that board.OUR VIEWSuwannee DemocratFor political junkies, the season starts today sort of. This is the last day candidates can qualify for the upcoming city elections by petition. They still have until March 19 to decide if they're going to run, but after today they'll have to pay a fee rather than collect voters'signatures (25 are required for city races) to get their names on the ballot. The fee is nominal $50 but that's not the point. Qualifying by petition is something of a tradition in small towns. Something of a ritual as well. It's a chance for candidates to meet potential voters in a more relaxed setting and learn the lay of the political landscape. And it's really the only way to go. Supervisor of Elections Glenda Williams says that in her 13 years in office, no city or county candidate has put his or her name on the ballot by simply shelling out the cash. So the field is likely set for the May 4 city elections. And what a field it is. The offices of mayor and city clerk, as well as three council seats are up for grabs. Nobody's running unopposed and one crowded race (city clerk) had five folks competing as of press time. Should be a good show, if you like that sort of thing. We do. And we'll be pleased to keep you posted on all the latest happenings. Coming soon: our candidate questionnaires, in which city office-seekers respond to a set series of queries on issues of local concern. Then, just before the onset of early voting (which begins April 19), we'll make our choices and offer public endorsements of those we think best qualified in any given race. That should spark a lively enough debate. (Note: County races are beginning to simmer as well, but that's another story.)In season: PoliticsBIBLE VERSEJesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:37-39 Want to vent?

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.Congratulations to the African American Development Council for the Black History play and dinner held at the Live Oak Church of God on Thursday evening. Yvonne Scott, president of that group, worked tirelessly to put this all together. The Black History play written and directed by Dr. Phillip Combs, was excellent and the cast of actors and singers came from many churches all over the community, in love. The onlookers were captivated by the excellence of the evening. Thank you.To those complaining about the City Council negotiating a contract with OMI, you need to look into the nuts and bolts of the package and you will learn that OMI is the best deal the city has ever made. Been there, done that. Thank you.My point is concerning the cartoon that is under the Rant & Rave on Friday, Feb. 19. This cartoon is very distasteful. How the board of the Suwannee Democrat could put this in there, I have no idea. Something needs to be done, and something needs to be apologized. This cartoon is just awful. My subscription to the Democrat is in jeopardy right now and I have had it for 10 years, but somebody needs to do something about this cartoon.With the elections coming up and all the different people running for different offices, what I would like to see in the newspaper and these people speak about, is their experience. I appreciate the fact that some of them are lifelong residents, that they have been blessed to be able to have generation after generation here and that they are involved in the churches, that it important, but that is not the issue. I want the best person for the job, and if that is Mr. Smith from California, then so be it. So tell us what your job qualifications are, not so much about your personal life. This is a small town so everybody knows about the personal things. And I really enjoy the rant & rave, keep it up. Thank you.If Councilman Stewart wants to resolve the Public Works situation why didn't he put it on the ballot to decide. Afraid you might not get the answer you want.I'm writing this "Rave" to thank everyone who stopped to ask if I was okay when I had a flat tire last Tuesday evening. I was parked at the intersection of Rt 250 and 251, just west of Dowling Park, for about an hour and at least 10 vehicles stopped to ask if I was warm enough, if I needed help, or if I just wanted them to wait with me until a mechanic arrived. I appreciate everyone's concern and it made me feel better knowing so many people were willing to lend a helping hand to a stranded stranger.

I know that everyone has a lot of "stuff" going on, but I did want to make sure that the parents know that the 3rd Annual Teen Police Academy is right around the corner. It will begin on March 18 on Thursday nights from 6-8 and end with a graduation on May 13. If you are not aware of this program, it is a dynamic approach to educate our youth about law enforcement and the entire criminal justice system. The students will be faced with a scenario crime with a crime scene and work the entire crime scene from start to finish ending up in the courtroom trying the crime in front of the Judge and jury. We have had some great success with the last academies and this is really one of the highlights of our year. The students need to be age 13-18, and applications can be picked up at the Suwannee Middle School or the Suwannee High School. If parents home school their children, applications are available at the Live Oak Police Department, or if you have any questions about the academy email me at williamsb@liveoakpd.org or give me a call at 386-3647950. This is my office number, I will be glad to answer any questions. There are other activities going on with the Live Oak Police Department, the national "Click it or Ticket" campaign will begin March 1, this will be an enforcement wave for safety belt and other traffic violations. I hope that at the end of this campaign I can report that the citizens in Live Oak and Suwannee County do a great job in wearing their seatbelts. I am asking that parents, please take extra precautions with your children and make sure the proper restraints are used, they don't get a choice and rely on us as parents to make sure they are safe. The "Chief's Reading Patrol" has started to all kindergarten and 1st grade students, reading about bullying and the consequences associated with bullying. This will take about two months to complete, but I am serious when I say "children make me smile." I along with several officers on the force take part in this effort. I am proud to serve you the citizens and appreciate living in the "Greatest Place on Earth." Chief's ChatBY BUDDY WILIAMSLive Oak ChiefofPolice~ ~ GUEST COLUMN

tournament to provide a scholarship in honor of a teacher who died during childbirth. He also explained how he got the name Angie. He attended Troy State College, and a professor pointed him out and said, "You remind me of a man I served with in the Navy named Angie." He continued, "I attended a class taught by this professor, when he called roll, he said Angie Ceraso. When I went to Lafayette High School, there was a teacher there who was at Troy State while I was there and he remembered me being called Angie. So he called me Angie Ceraso and the name stuck with me." He also observed that Rotary International has 1.2 million members worldwide, and is working to eradicate polio throughout the world. Branford," said Capt. Roy Brown, area supervisor at the FWC's Lake City office. "Zones 4 and 5 are still idle-speed, no-wake," Brown said, "and we still have officers patrolling that area to enforce the boating restrictions." Zone 4 runs from the C.R. 340 Bridge at Rock Bluff to one mile below the Fowler Bluff boat ramp. Zone 5 is a 32mile segment, extending from River Rise in O'Leno State Park west to the confluence of the Suwannee River. The FWC activated the zone on Jan. 29, when the Santa Fe River reached 17 feet on the Three Rivers gauge, where flood stage is 19 feet. "The water levels on both rivers are going down slowly," Brown said. "But it may take a while longer before we can deactivate these zones." An idle-speed, nowake zone means a vessel must proceed at a speed no greater than what is required to maintain steerageway and headway. At no time is any vessel required to proceed so slowly that the operator is unable to control it or anything it may be towing. The Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers are divided into five flood zones. The other three zones are: • Zone 1, from the U.S. 90 Bridge at Ellaville south to the State Road 51 Bridge at Luraville. This 39-mile segment becomes an idlespeed, no-wake zone when the Suwannee River reaches 47 feet or more at the Ellaville gauge, where flood stage is 54 feet. • Zone 2, from the S.R. 51 Bridge at Luraville to Little River Spring. This 18-mile segment becomes an idlespeed, no-wake zone when the Suwannee River reaches 26 feet or more above mean sea level at the Branford gauge, where flood stage is 29 feet. For more information about the flood zones, please call 386-7580525. To report violations, please call 888404-3922. To obtain real-time river level information, visit www.mysuwanneeriver.c om.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Odd Even U U new new Odd EvenU U new new FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2010 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 9ANorth Florida 578315jkv By Cody Webb Back when the first Army of Two came out, coop games weren't nearly as popular as they are today. While Army of Two helped to contribute some of the co-op standards that we have today, the rest of the game was a little bit underwhelming. The team at EA Montreal has spent their time improving on the potential the first game had, and now they have released the sequel: Army of Two: The 40th Day.The 40th Day starts with a lot of promise: returning mercenaries Rios and Salem are in the middle of a simple mission in Shanghai when it is invaded by a private military force. The duo are caught in the middle of Shanghai's destruction and their objective becomes to escape the collapsing city in one piece. Unfortunately, this is where the story starts to derail. Instead of making escape and survival the main focus, the story is put into radio logs and into separate "Save the Hostages" missions. This makes the story seem disjointed and when the game throws a moral choice at you, the emotional impact it could've had is diminished. As a result, the story's biggest feat is bringing the duo's frat boy talk down to a minimum. While the plot remains a low point, the gunplay has improved between games. The cover system is still touchy, but it's nowhere near as iffy as it was in the first game. Guns perform their jobs well and the myriad of customization options for them are definitely a high point for any gun junkie. The relatively tight controls have one rather irritating annoyance, however: the button to run and the button to revive a downed teammate are one and the same. This leads to players accidentally dashing away from their buddy or performing a needless action roll while their friend is slowly dying. While this isn't a gamebreaker, it's certainly something that should've been addressed during development. The graphics are pretty good, a little more average than some of the games that are currently out, but they suffice. They aren't ugly by any means, they just don't compliment the boring and seen-them-before locations. Unfortunately, the rest of the levels just can't match the opening's intensity. While the single-player campaign starts with a bang and ends with a fizzle, the multiplayer does its best to pick up the slack. Players should definitely try out the Extraction mode, which tasks them with defending a location from waves of enemies. I realize this is starting to become a standard with coop shooters, but with the full complement of players, it can be fun for hours on end. It's a shame EA didn't take the chance to implement some sort of ranking system or progressive stats. Unlockable rewards, like outfits or guns and gun additions, would have done a world of good for The 40th Day. Unfortunately, they didn't even include the single-player's weapon customization system! Players are stuck with preset weapon sets and none of the options present in the campaign.The most depressing part of all of this is that you can see the game has potential. You can tell that it's there, but it is buried under questionable choices. If you didn't enjoy the first Army of Two, it's a pretty sure bet you won't enjoy this one. I give it a C; hopefully if EA decides to try another Army of Two, they'll give it the polish that this one needed.

L ott 386-688-4977 lottfam4@windstream.net BULLETIN Kenneth John CoenMissing persons case Ôsuspicious' city has decided to renegotiate the $2.4 million dollar pact. "But how in the world do you know if you can save money if you don't go out for bids," Bennie Thomas asked. To which Ed Rewis responded: "We got all the records, we know what we spent, we know what they spent, if we look at the two we know what kind of deal we're getting." Rewis was appointed as chairman of the city's negotiating team. Stewart questioned Thomas, saying that if Thomas had not made a previous motion to negotiate with OMI, the council could have gone another direction. Thomas said he never used the term "good faith" in his motion. "Then what was the motion made for," Stewart asked Thomas.City, OMI begin talksContinued From Page 1A "That we can negotiate a new contract and if we're not satisfied with it we can go out for bids," said Thomas. That motion was made several weeks ago. "But if we're not negotiating in good faith then we're not saving the people money," Stewart replied. "How in the world do you know if you can save money if you don't go out for bids," Thomas asked. Stewart said that since Thomas made the motion, and the council passed it, the city has to negotiate. "If you wouldn't have made that motion, Bennie, then we would have went out for bids," said Stewart. OMI negotiator Grega St. John said that to expect OMI to lay all their cards on the table and then say "thanks" and go out for bids anyway is not fair. "I should just go write my competitor a letter and say Ôhey, here's our price'," said St. John. "It's not good faith whatsoever ... and if we're not really negotiating then put it out to bid." John Hale was asked by Stewart to serve on the committee but declined, saying it wouldn't be fair to the city or OMI. "I won't serve on it because I can honestly say I couldn't negotiate in good faith," said Hale. "Once you get to that point of serving on the committee then I think you've got an obligation. If we start good 1416 N. Ohio Ave., Live Oak362-4724570122-F faith negotiations you would expect that's exactly what it is, good faith negotiations. You expect we reach some type of an agreement ... and I would rather do bids." St. John asked Hale if the negotiations took place, "what is going to make you decide to push the contract through." "Cost," Hale responded. Councilman David Burch, said that money isn't the "only issue." "Is it important, absolutely, but you just can't go into a contract on money," said Burch. "There's so many more issues there than just get the lowest price." Burch said some of those issues are productivity and experience. The committee is expected to release its decision to the full council at its next scheduled meeting in March.

Keep reading, because I've got a suggestion to help you improve your smile in just 2 weeks, and it's pain-free! Open spaces, crooked teeth, and even stains can affect the way people feel about themselves. It's a proven fact that low self-esteem often leads to emotional conditions such as depression and anti-social behavior. This even has potential to escalate into medical conditions. People who are not happy with their smiles suffer more in these areas than people who are confident with their smiles. As a doctor, I say, "Try veneers!" A veneer is a very small, contact-lens-size shell that is bonded to your natural tooth. With advances in technology, we can now offer drill-free veneers to some patients. This means we don't need to remove any of your natural tooth structure for the veneers. We like to call them "pain-free veneers"! This simple, yet powerful little veneer can produce potent results for selfesteem (say that five times fast!)! Veneers are fast, reliable, and timetested to make beautiful smiles, and the price could surprise you, too! Check out this affordable little miracle today.

"It started on the countertop in the kitchen in the area of some appliances that were plugged in," said Suwannee County Fire/Rescue Chief Charlie Conner. "What the fire didn't get, soot got, what soot didn't get, water got," said Danielle Brewer. "We cried a good bit Sunday," said Jim Brewer. "But we have finally accepted it." Danielle Brewer said every so often it hits them some of the things that were lost. "We were driving and I remembered that the baby blankets were burned up," she said. "Yeah, we cried over baby blankets." The Brewers have four kids: Alex, 10; Elizabeth, 6; Madilynn, 2 and Christian, 10 months. "You can tell he's thinking about it a lot," Danielle Brewer said of Alex. "He gets real quiet and he usually isn't. You know he's trying to process it." She said Madilynn has had a sudden attachment with a doll, which she won't put down. The Brewers are thankful they weren't home when the fire began sometime around 12:52 p.m., when fire/rescue was dispatched. They were all spending the day out, shopping and checking out rabbits at a local roadside vendor. The Brewers have received some local help. The schools gave the kids some clothes, and the Red Cross paid for three nights at a local lodging facility. But they still need help. Jim and Danielle Brewer only have two sets of clothes left, they are about out of funds and have to use what they have to pick up the tab on the room after the third day, which ended Wednesday. An account has been set up at Capital City Bank in Branford under the name James and Danielle Brewer. They are asking anyone that can help to please make donations to that account. Conner said Stations 1,2,41,51,42 and 43 and a total of 12 firefighters utilized 1,000 gallons of water to combat the fire. "Available was 15,000 gallons in the fire theater," said Conner. The home was not insured, according to the Brewers.Continued From Page 1A of Live Oak. "I am seeking to be elected as your next full-time city clerk," said Jefferson. Jefferson said he believes that what folks look for and want, is a city clerk who is available at City Hall when needed. "Many of you are probably wondering why I stress the point Ôfull-time'city clerk," said Jefferson. "The elected position requires full-time attention from the person that is elected to it. The clerk position handles far more than recording minutes and selling burial plots." Jefferson said he has researched the position and knows it to be "a very extensive job. I understand why our forefathers believed the position to be an elected (position) when they established the city charter of Live Oak." Jefferson said he feels qualified to be the next city clerk because of his education and work experience. "Because of this and my ability to interact with all people, I feel qualified," said Jefferson. He is currently the pastor of the New National Grove Missionary Baptist Church. Experience: Three years of training at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Pellissippi State Community College, one year data entry. Licensed insurance agent. Suwannee County Planning and Zoning Board, 16 years. Four years as president. Secretary of Brothers of Unity Organization. Voters League member. Boys & Girls Club board member. Former president of the African American Development Council. Second vice-president of the Congress of Christian Education. Vice-president of the Suwannee County Ministerial Alliance. Certified automobile salesman. Over 20 years of fast food management experience. Campaign pledges: "I believe that our citizens must always be well informed about what's affecting their livelihood."Jefferson enters city clerk raceContinued From Page 1A "I believe that local government should be more hands on with citizens." "I believe people perish because of the lack of information." "I love sharing valuable information with others." "I want to be helpful to every citizen." Jefferson said if elected he will be a hands-on city clerk who will share any information he has. "Interaction with the public is one of my strong points," said Jefferson. Jefferson has three children, Reginald, Carla and Jasmine, all of Live Oak. He is also raising a niece, Akijhitae McCray, 12. "As you see me walking through the neighborhoods knocking on doors, please receive me and be receptive to the things I have to say," said Jefferson. "Please come out and vote for me on May 4." "As a councilman, my feelings are that I represent the people who put me in office, not the city," Hale said of his philosophy of government. Hale said he has always voted with the best interests of the people in mind. "Every budget I have voted to spend as low as possible to keep our millage rate down," said Hale. "I have voted against the frivolous spending on things like the controversial SUV." Hale said in these rough economic times, city officials need to remember who they are working for. "This particular time we need to get the things we need, not the things we want," said Hale. Hale stressed that he has always been for going out for bids on the OMI contract. "I'm still opposed to OMI performing our city services," said Hale. "An example is garbage pickup has went from twice a week to once but the rate has gone up. I don't like that they're proceeding on a new contract without going out for bids." Growth Hale said the US 129/I10 quadrant is the future. "The key right now to development in our city is expanding the north end of town," said Hale. "All development that comes in is going to come in to that area." Haled said he is proud to have voted for a new water and well site for the north end that "when complete will help us develop the north end of town."

Hale hopes you come out and support him and keep him in office May 4.

In his redirect, Shands attorney John Jopling, asked Davis whether most hospital transfer patients were considered "emergent." Davis replied, "Any patient that was considered out of our scope of work who would need to be transferred to another facility would or could sometimes be considered an emergency, she explained. However, Hannon was never admitted into the emergency room that day. Next to take the stand was Dr. Kerry Krone, a neurological surgeon from Cincinnati Children's Hospital, who specialized in neuro-pediatric surgery. He testified for the defense. Krone explained that in a patient like Nathan Hannon, with a Dandy-Walker cyst, the logistics of care and treatment were different than those involving a patient without such a condition in hydrocephalus. "Forty percent of shunts will malfunction in the first year, and it is standard to tell parents that shunts will fail," he said. "Usually we say frequent follow-up." Although the question of follow-up did come up briefly in the case Monday, the question of yearly follow-up in the Hannon case had already been ruled out. "It's not uncommon for shunts to malfunction," Krone said, "and an untreated shunt malfunction will most commonly result in death." There are signs to look for when a shunt malfunctions, which usually include: "headache, vomiting and changes in mood and/or performance," Krone said. "We do not tell parents," however, Krone said, "that with the onset of a headache that their child may die within hours." He said generally, death doesn't occur that quickly with a shunt malfunction. Krone said that it is necessary for doctors to have previous CTscans, usually from two points in time, to notice differences in a patient's brain activity over time. Neither the doctor in Colorado, nor Dr. Bob Spendell at Shands had additional CTscans on Nathan Hannon to compare during their evaluations, according to previous testimony. Krone explained that pressing a patient's shunt neck valve only showed that the shunt was working "proximally" (in the brain), but is not a good indication that the dismal end (end point in the lower chest) is working OK. Yvette Hannon testified earlier that on Oct. 28, 1999, she had checked her son's neck valve and it was working properly, the day before he died. Krone said, "If a patient has had a shunt malfunction historically they will present in the same fashion as they had before." Nathan Hannon told his mother that he didn't think that it was "one of those headaches," prior to his death. Krone testified that the CTscan at Live Oak, and even those earlier from Colorado, "were consistent with a shunt malfunction" citing that fluid was present near the brain stem where it is typically not present in a patient with a Dandy-Walker cyst and existing shunt. However, Krone pointed out that Nathan Hannon's case may have been different. "He was awake and talking, which is not typical with someone in emergency status or life-threatening condition with a shunt malfunction." Hannon was dischargedDefense witness takes the standContinued From Page 1A from Colorado with "undetermined etiology" written in his records, meaning doctors could not give conclusive reason for his headaches while on that trip. Regardless, Krone said, "He needed follow-up for his shunt. You need a shunt series to determine whether everything is OK or not." Krone said, "I believe the event that took Nathan Hannon to the hospital in Pueblo, Colorado was a result of a shunt malfunction." The doctors there attributed it to altitude sickness, as earlier pointed out in the case. "In my opinion the CT scan from Colorado shows that the shunt was not working properly because there is fluid present near the center of the brain at the spinal cord Ñ a cistern. It's a subtle finding, I would not expect the doctor to have known that, but when you see this it is an absolute sign that (the shunt) is not working properly." Krone said the lack of comparative film in Colorado may have attributed to the doctors not being able to pick up on that finding. "It was the quiet before the storm," he said. "That shunt break moved Nathan along the path of the unwell. It was an event that was already set in motion and there was no way for anyone to determine the events to come and the rapid speed at which they occurred." James W. Gustafson Jr., another Hannon attorney, began his questioning of Krone. Krone explained that he couldn't determine whether "the day before or if months earlier Nathan Hannon's shunt officially malfunctioned," however he said it is highly probable that the fracture occurred earlier. He said, "Nathan Hannon would have experienced a series of problems if indeed the shunt did malfunction in Colorado." He said, as far as he knows (and from testimony already presented), that Nathan had no problems from August 1999 to October 1999. He called it a mystery. "This is so different than what we commonly seeÑ someone talking then within 15 minutes they're in cardiac arrest." In a separate chest x-ray, Krone pointed out a separation in the shunt tubing in Nathan Hannon's chest. "I really think this was a shunt that had separated and fixing it would have prevented what happened." Gustafson questioned whether repeated CPR on Nathan Hannon on Oct. 29, 1999 could be attributed to the shunt separation. "It's possible that the shunt was separated as a result of CPR, but not probable," Krone said. "If anything, the CPR coul d have further separated an already small fracture." in Micanopy by a member of the maintenance staff. "There was nothing suspicious and there was no type of crime scene," Maynard said Thursday. He said Skinner's body was sent to the medical examiner's office in Alachua County. "The autopsy was conducted and came back unremarkable, which in other words means no immediate cause of death is known," said Maynard. He said the exact cause of death should be known when toxicology results come back, which could take four to six months. According to Lake City Police Department's public information officer, Sgt. John Blanchard, Skinner walked into the Walgreens around 8:30 p.m. Saturday and confronted pharmacist Eric Egelund. "Mr. Egelund stated that (Skinner) walked to the counseling window, got his attention and stated that he had a bomb," Blanchard said in a press release. "Mr. Egelund stated to officers that he thought this was a joke, but (Skinner) repeated ÔI have a bomb.'" Skinner then demanded that Egelund give "me all of your Oxycontin." Egelund used his safe keys and took five bottles of the drug, each containing about 100 pills, out of the store's safe and handed them to Skinner. Blanchard said Skinner put the bottles "in the pockets of his navy blue" hoodie type sweater and walked out of the store. Maynard said that Skinner stole a vehicle in Columbia County before robbing the Walgreens. After the robbery, Maynard said Skinner then drove to the Micanopy hotel with "several" others, some of whom have been identified and some who have not, according to Maynard. He said the vehicle has since been returned to its rightful owner. Maynard would not say if the Oxycontin pills were located in the room with Skinner due to an ongoing investigation. However he did say that authorities have yet "to recover all the narcotics.Robbery suspect found deadContinued From Page 1A

As Suwannee County grows so does the celebrity status of its faithful. Clinton Bean, nicknamed "Bean," is one of the regulars on Operation Wild, which can be seen on Planet Green on Friday nights at 10 o'clock. Tales of the Highway patrol? No. Tales of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission? Yes. Clint is a 1996 Suwannee High graduate who was cocaptain of the Bulldog baseball team. Clint traded his baseball cap for a cowboy hat and the rest is history. He is a state of Florida Wildlife Officer. The stories that have aired feature Bean saving a two-pound mutt from highway traffic with a can of Vienna sausages to playing bodyguard for a 500 pound tranquilized bear. Not many people growing up in Live Oak have had the opportunity to save a whale, but Bean has. Not all is heroic or on the light side however. Bean has investigated gunshots in the middle of the night, chased poachers and traveled at extreme boat speeds through alligator infested swamps. In his not-for-TVexploits he has captured a 9 1/2 foot python alive. The snake thing is no longer an urban myth. He has also killed a 379-pound hog. Not hogzilla, but it puts Porky to shame. Clinton is also a regular on the FWC praise an employee site. Perhaps it's his country upbringing, but he has a laidback common sense attitude towards law enforcement. It comes through when faced with tenuous situations during the more hardcore episodes. I have no idea how long Operation Wild will run but it is certainly must see TV. You would certainly be proud of our hometown boy.SPORTS COMMENTARYUnderdogs to top dogs By Stephenie Livingstonstephenie.livingston@gaflnews.comGoing into the state tournament last Friday, the Suwannee High School wrestling team was ranked as merely honorable mentions. Still, the underdogs came away with two state titles and six top ten finishes. They wanted it the most, said wrestling coach David Laxton. "All my life I have worked toward this moment," said Travis Laxton after winning a state title. Joe McMillan also won a state title, while Jamie Alvarado, Jacob Wainwright, Aaron Fountain, Josh Key, Logan Register and John Boatright all placed in the top 16. "Going into the state tournament we were only honorable mentions. This did not sit well with the boys nor myself," said coach Laxton. "They just turned a negative into a positive and they believed they could win it all." Coach Laxton said his boys fought for the wins and would not let up. "You could see they wanted it more and more," said Laxton. "It was right up until the last whistle blew, and they still believed that they could win." McMillan won 6-2 and Laxton won 8-1.

Continued From Page 1B Gainesville Sun all area team in 2009, as well as, the Florida Times Union tennis team. Sydnie is a strong player and brings a lot of depth to the girls team this year. Playing at number two is returner, senior Katherine Haney. Katherine has improved her game so much this year and Suwannee will be looking to Katherine for some very important matches at the number two singles and number one doubles positions. Number three for Suwannee is senior returner, Mary Beth Finch. Mary Beth is a solid player that is very serious about her game and is determined to bring home another district championship for Suwannee. Mary Beth will play with Lindsey Garland in number two doubles this year. Number four is being played by sophomore Garland. Lindsey was on the team last year, but didn't see much playing time, but this year will change all of that. Lindsey is a talented tennis player that will definitely help Suwannee, not only in singles, but in doubles, as well. Number five is junior returner, Ashton Bracewell. Ashton is a strong tennis player that will bring experience to the number five position that will assist Suwannee throughout the season. Suwannee girls bring three new faces to the team: sophomore LauraKaitlyn Boatright, freshman Taylor Henderson and Lindsey Brothers. These girls will add depth to the team this year and will play every opportunity presented to gain experience for the coming years. Suwannee Boy's return in the # 1 position, Senior Justin Garland is a four-year starter for Suwannee and has always played an important part in the success of Suwannee tennis. Justin will also be playing the number one doubles team with T.J. Vickers. Number two is senior Jabe Weaver. Jabe is returning with two years experience and brings a lot of depth and wisdom to this team. Jabe will also be assisting in the number two doubles position. Number three is senior Tyler Hadden. Tyler is a two-year starter and brings much enthusiasm to Suwannee tennis. Tyler is an awesome player and it is always exciting to watch Tyler play tennis. Number four is senior Marshall Boggus. Marshall is a natural athlete who brings so much to the boys team. His desire to win was demonstrated in a clutch match victory against rival, Rickards High, yesterday. Boggus will also team up with Weaver in the number two doubles team this year. Number five this year will be senior T.J. Vickers. T.J. is a two-year returner who brings leadership, as well as, talent, to this team. T.J. is an asset to the number five position, as well as the number one doubles partner with Justin Garland. New on the boys team this year are sophomores Rhett Barker and Drew Land and freshman Zachary Wiggins. These young men will definitely play a huge part in rebuilding this team as we will lose five senior boys from our team at the end of this season. I look for these boys to play as much as possible to gain experience to move into starting positions next season. Coaching the varsity boys and girls tennis at SHS this year is Kim Boatright. Although Boatright is new as the head coach at SHS, she is definitely not new to Suwannee County, coaching or tennis. Boatright has been involved in the tennis program at SHS for the past four years as her son, John-Walt, played in the number one position all four years. Coach Boatright has been teaching and coaching a variety of sports in Suwannee County for over 30 years. Playing on the first softball team at SHS her senior year in 1976, Continued From Page 1BSuwannee tennis is back and looking goodSuwannee tennis begins season with two strong district victoriesBoatright received a scholarship to play both volleyball and softball at Lake City Community College in the fall of 1976. Following two state championships in softball at LCCC, Boatright traveled to Florida State University to play softball where FSU won two more state championships in 1979 and 1980. Following graduation at FSU, Boatright returned to SHS where she began teaching physical education and coaching varsity softball at Suwannee High School. Boatright returned to FSU in the fall of 1985 to obtain a master's degree in physical education administration/curriculum. While obtaining her degree, Boatright was hired at Maclay School to coach softball and won another state championship in 1986. Boatright has been teaching in Suwannee County Schools for 28 years and has enjoyed coaching soccer and softball, refereeing volleyball and excited to have the opportunity to coach this fine group of tennis players at Suwannee High School. "I have never worked with such a great group of players and parents as I have worked with this year while coaching SMS girls soccer and SHS tennis," says Boatright. Boatright looks forward to many more successful years of coaching before retiring. #4 Marshall Boggus beat Devon Richardson, 8-2. #5 T.J. Vickers beat Godby's Kevin Hutcheson, 8-2. The number one doubles team for Suwannee of Garland and Vickers beat Godby's Vanderipe and Pierce by a score of 8-0. The number two doubles team of Weaver and Boggus beat Godby's Barker and Hutcheson 8-1. The last match of the week for Suwannee was another district rivalry against Rickards High School.

The number two doubles team of Finch and Garland beat Rickards, Hota and Atolia 8-2. The number three doubles team of Bracewell and Taylor Henderson edged out a victory against Rickards, Fu and Nyguyen 9-7. Suwannee's match was more of a nail-biter against Rickards with Suwannee taking the victory, 4-3. The crucial point was won by the last match of the day; number three singles by senior Marshall Boggus. Boggus'victory was sweet after team play continued for nearly three and a half hours.

How did you celebrate Valentine's Day with that special someone? The National Retail Federation estimates that Americans spent approximately $17 billion on the Valentine holiday. Why all the fuss? According to Dr. Gary Chapman's book "The Five Love Languages", love is an emotional need, and what we must learn about love is how to express it in a language that the other person understands. According to Chapman, there are five basic love languages: á Words of Affirmation: this can mean words of sincere praise for results and efforts as well as words of affection that express positive thoughts toward someone as a person. "You are such a great friend", "Your eyes are beautiful", or "I know that didn't turn out like you hoped, but I am proud of how hard you tried." á Quality Time: giving a portion of time and your undivided attention is a powerful communicator of love to another person because our lives are so busy. This doesn't mean simply being in the same room at the same time, but has everything to do with togetherness, making sure the other person feels like they are the focus of your attention. á Receiving Gifts:gifts are visible evidence of emotional love. Perhaps this explains the billions spent on Valentine's Day. The Greek word from which we get our English word gift is "charis" which means grace or undeserved. The beauty of gifts is that they don't have to be fancy or expensive to be valuable. A gift says I care about you and I think you are important. That is the real treasure. á Acts of Service: Loving service is an internally motivated desire to give your energy for another. Just doing something for someone, especially something they want or need accomplished is a powerful way to communicate love. Like quality time, it requires a portion of our life set aside and donated for another, but acts of service also allows them to be free of a task or chore. á Physical Touch: Touching is an emotionally powerful way to communicate love. This is why we love to give and receive hugs and why a shoulder massage relaxes us; touch makes us feel loved and accepted. Although all of the five love languages listed above are enjoyable and pleasant, every person has one or two of these that makes them feel more loved than the others, and by nature we speak that language to others. If we enjoy gifts, we will probably buy gifts for others. If we need words of affirmation, we will probably leave love notes and be very encouraging verbally. The problem comes when the other person doesn't speak our language. We may be speaking gifts, but they want quality time. Or they may be doing acts of service for us and we just want them to say, "I love you". We can learn to speak the language of the other person if want them to feel loved by us. We can usually determine our own language by what we most often do for another when we want to show love to them, and to determine other's language, we can ask their preference and watch what they do for others. This principle can be applied in friendships and parent-child/teenager as well as romantic relationships. Learn to speak the language of those you love. Because their heart matters!

Presently, the church supports three mission works in various parts of Haiti. The January 2010 earthquakes in the country of Haiti devastated one of the poorest countries in the world and caused a major outpouring of interest from the people of the United States. My trip last week was to get current information on one of the missions we support, Sonlight Christian Mission. Day One, Monday After a late Sunday drive to Fort Lauderdale, I arose at 3 a.m. to make a 6 a.m. Monday morning flight to Cap-Haitien, Haiti. Day One had begun. Kenny, my traveling companion from Virginia, and I deplaned from our 30-seat prop plane during a light rain, which was to continue as we drove through the muddy streets of Cap-Haitien. Before we began the trip, however, we had to retrieve our checked bags and locate our Haitian minister, Melio Jean. Fortunately, his brother Inera was at the door among a dozen other Haitians to greet and guide us. Several young Haitian men clamoring to carry our bags for a tip accompanied us on the short walk to the car. We traveled three and one half hours over curvy, pot-holed mountain roads to make the 65-mile journey to the city of Gonaives. Along the way we saw beautiful scenery, crowded rural market places, extreme poverty, women carrying very large loads on their heads, and children playing along the road side the usual daily life of Haiti. After crossing the last mountain, the region became very dry because of several months' drought. Yet, traveling along the riverbank we were forced to make several short detours because of the flood damage from the 2004 and 2008 hurricanes. As we reached Gonaives, we could see that most of those mountains had been deforested because the people had used the trees for the production of charcoal, their only fuel for heating and cooking.Four days Haitiin We enjoyed an evening meal with Melio, his wife Gyna and their two children and made plans for the next three days. We gave Melio the money we had carried in to help him meet the needs of his people. This was one of the primary reasons for the trip, since other means of fund transfer (banks) were not working. Above: Our first stop in Gonaives was at the Mission to see the church building, the new wall under construction, and foundation for a school. Left to right, Pastor Ray Kelley, Pastor Melio Jean and Kelley's traveling companion from Virginia, Kenny. Right: The downtown marketplace in Gonaives where Pastor Kelley and Pastor Melio picked up Gyna and the supplies she had purchased to make gift bags for hospital patients. EDITOR'S NOTE: Ray Kelley, pastor of the Live Oak Christian Church, spent four days in Haiti last week (Feb 15-19). Kelley went to visit Melio Jean, the pastor of Sonlight Christian Mission. Melio is a former student of both Kelley and his wife Shirley and since 1999 the Kelleys have been serving as his Forwarding Agents. Their responsibility is to help raise money to support the mission. Melio's mission is in Gonaives, north of Port-au-Prince and not destroyed by the earthquake. As Kelley finds out, thousands of refuges from Port-au-Prince have come to Gonaives. There are no camps for these people. They have moved in with family and friends.OBy Dr. W. Ray Kelley Live Oak Christian Church In the evening we worshipped with the Sonlight Christian Mission congregation. These congregation members are having a bit of fun before the service.

Since it was his first trip to Haiti, he took over 1,500 pictures with his digital camera. I also had time to get current information about the ministry of Sonlight Christian Mission from Melio, the Pastor and former student of mine. Two floods from past hurricanes had caused many challenges for the Mission, one of which was the destruction of the concrete block security wall around the three-acre Mission property. Melio described the new stone wall being built that is over 15 inches wide and six feet high. Naturally, our first stop in Gonaives was at the Mission to see the church building, the new wall under construction, and foundation for a school. We enjoyed an evening meal with Melio, his wife Gyna and their two children and made plans for the next three days. We gave Melio the money we had carried in to help him meet the needs of his people. This was one of the primary reasons for the trip, since other means of fund transfer (banks) were not working. Following dinner we checked into our hotel for a good night's sleep. The hotel, not up to American standards but very good by Haitian standards, was clean, inviting, and secured. We thanked God for it. Day Two, Tuesday As we drove around the city, we saw that the earthquake had not produced any damage in that area. We went to the marketplace to pick up Gyna and the supplies she had purchased to make gift bags for hospital patients. During the afternoon we prepared 100 bags of basic items (toothpaste, candles and matches, soap, canned food, etc.) to distribute at two local hospitals because patients must supply their own needs. At the hotel Tuesday evening we had enlightening discussions with the leaders of two teams from the United States: two Army soldiers and two doctors. The soldiers each headed a team responsible for assessing the needs in Haiti, one concerning medical needs and the other socio-economic. They told us that 40,000-70,000 people had moved from Port-au-Prince to Gonaives (a city of about 250,000). These refugees are not in camps but have been absorbed into the homes of family and friends who themselves are struggling to provide the necessities of life. Unemployment is at 50 percent. But God is faithful. Three ministers in the city told us that all of their congregations had increased as new members joined their churches. The two American doctors had been in Haiti for about a week and were greatly disturbed by the poor conditions in the local hospitals. They had attempted to perform some needed surgeries, but because of the lack of an anesthesiologist and other necessary supplies, they could do very little. The leader of the Army medical assessment team offered to help them find the needed personnel. No doctor was available because the only doctor in that hospital had been killed in the earthquake in Port-auPrince. Day Two ended as we contemplated the plight of the people and the ministry of God's Church. Day Three, Wednesday I spent time encouraging another former Haitian student of mine who also pastors a church there. Around 800 people had attended services in his church for a government-called weekend of "fasting and prayer." That afternoon we,Four days inalong with members of Melio's congregation, went to the local hospital to distribute the gift bags. We found that not only was there no doctor attending, but also most of the nurses left the hospital at noon to attend Carnival. In the evening we worshipped with the Sonlight Christian Mission congregation and also learned that the American doctors had been able to do the surgeries. Day Four, Thursday morning We visited the Mission to see how the work was progressing on the new security wall, being very pleased with the quality of construction and that many of the laborers were members of the congregation, providing them an income to help support their families. That afternoon we made the arduous return trip back over the mountains to Cap-Haitien to fly home Friday. Friday evening I was back in Live Oak, thankful that God had blessed me with the opportunity to travel to Haiti to render some help; and thankful to live in our country and enjoy the ministry here. We will continue to supply funds to the Mission to help them lift the burden of the influx of refugees and to build the mission. The Haitian people are very hard workers and their faith in God is visible in their daily life. We plan, with God's will, to make another trip in the fall with a larger group to coordinate efforts with Haitian Christians to assist in needed projects, like repairing homes, and to hold VBS for the children. Please continue to pray for the people of Haiti. If you would like to help in this vital outreach to Haiti, you can send contributions to us at LOCC, Box 388, Live Oak, FL32064. Dr. W.

Matier Doctor of Pastoral Counseling dmatier@windstream.net As a young man, while working in Lakeland, Fl., a Christian musician gave me his testimony about having made a promise. He had promised God he was willing to sacrifice what ever it would take to win his family to the Lord. Shortly after that he said he was out mowing on a tractor with his five or six year old son on a bush-hog when his son fell off of the tractor. He described the scene as he assisted in picking up the pieces of his own son; putting them into a body bag. He went on to say that his whole family came to know the Lord as a result but at what a high personal cost for him. Many of you have probably heard similar testimonies. But sometimes the promises can cost one more than he expects to pay. Agood example of this is found in Judges chapter 11. "Jephthah vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said, If thou shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands, Then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD'S, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering," (Judges 11:30, 31). Needless to say he won the battle against the Ammonites and we catch up with the narration in verse 34, "And Jephthah came to Mizpeh unto his house, and his daughter came out to meet him..." (Judges 11:34-36). It must have been a horrible sight to this father to see his only child come out of his house knowing that he had made such a promise unto the Lord. Yet, because God had honored his commitment, Jephthah kept his end of the bargain. He told his daughter about the vow he made and his daughter, evidently a very courageous woman, told him to go through with his promise because God had delivered him from the children of Ammon. Jephthah, unlike so many men today, was a man of honor. Even under such harsh circumstances he kept his word Ð his promise was real. Jephthah went through with his promise "...her father...did with her according to his vow which he had vowed..." (Judges 11:39). This has been an interesting quandary for Bible students because God had commanded that his people not make human sacrifices and yet He seems to have allowed this exception. God's Word says (the 1611 King James Version. If you have another version at best you are using a commentary), "When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou has vowed. Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin;..." (Ecclesiastes 5:4-6). Be very careful of the promises you make to God. Watch out for the things you say in the heat of the moment! You love the Lord and you want to accomplish great things for Him, but THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK! David H.
