Notes

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

To dismay


of students,


recyclables


were trashed
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
"What have we been doing for the past five
months?"
That's what Suwannee High School student
Sebastian Hoffett wants to know after he and
other members of the SHS Environmental Club
learned that recyclables they labored to collect
were sent to the landfill instead.
The students started a recycling program to
deal with the large quantities of paper and plas-
tic drinking bottles being used at the school.
Club sponsor and SHS teacher Amy Hendry
said bins were set up throughout the school and
the response was great.
"We raised money to buy recycling bins and
promotional posters and got our maintenance
department to agree to pick up and drop off the
recycling," said Hendry. "It
just started to catch on."
Only later did she
learn that Suwannee
County was not recy-
cling the material.
"I called mainte-
nance to tell them they
had forgotten to pick up our
bins and I was told that they had been told that
there is no recycling in Suwannee County," she
said.
True to a degree, according to Public Works
Director Jerry Sikes.
"It's an on-again and off-again thing," said
Sikes.
Sikes said the igloos located at county refuse
collection sites are there for folks to drop off
aluminum cans, plastics and newspapers. The
newspapers, said Sikes, go straight to the land-

A parking lot behind a lo-

where thousands of pounds
of cocaine and millions of
dollars were stashed and
transported in hollowed out
truck batteries, federal offi-

Alberto "Amigo" Garcia,
30, was sentenced to 14
years in prison by a federal
judge Jan. 28 for his role in
the operation. According to
Steve Cole of the United
States Attorney's Office,
police called him a "ge-

detection.
Garcia and his accom-

EXTENSION UPDATE


What you should know about


the new credit card rules


By Cathy Rogers
Family and Consumer
Sciences Agent
UF/IFAS Suwannee
County Extension

Last year at about this
time, I wrote an article
concerning upcoming
changes in the way that
credit card companies do
business. In the article I
stated that Congress had
recently voted-in some
changes to credit card
regulations. That wasn't
quite true. At that time the
Federal Reserve had set up
the new rules but Congress
had not yet voted on them.
At this writing the Credit
Card Accountability
Responsibility and
Disclosure Act of 2009 -
the Credit CARD Act has
been passed by lawmakers.
Some of those rules went
into effect last August
while many will take
effect on Feb. 22. Still
others will not be enforced
until August 22 of this
year. These regulations are
intended to protect
consumers from deceptive
practices employed by
some credit card
companies.
Besides those mentioned
in my previous article,


some of the key provisions
in the Credit CARD Act
are:
Credit card companies
will be required to send
out monthly statements at
least 21 days prior to the
due date of each payment
and the payment must be
due on the same date each
month. Due dates that fall
on weekends or holidays
will be accepted on the
next workday and the
deadline will be 5 p.m.
consistently.
Over-limit fees will be
optional for the consumer.
In other words, if you are
about to make a purchase
that would cause you to go
over your credit limit
incurring a fee, you will
be notified at that time and
given the option to make
the purchase and accept
the fee or decline the
purchase. Once you
choose not to receive
these fees, any
transactions exceeding
your credit limit will be
denied.
Your credit card
company must notify you
45 days prior to:
increasing your interest
rate; changing certain fees
that apply to your account;
or making other
significant changes to
your account. It must give
you the chance to "opt
out" of the changes by
allowing you to close the
account before the
changes are made.
Monthly statements
must now include
information about how
long it will take to pay off
the balance when the
minimum payment is
made. In accordance with
the new law, it will also
tell you how much your


monthly payments will
need to be in order to pay
the balance in 12, 24, or
36 months.
Companies will be
prohibited from issuing
credit cards to consumers
under the age of 21 unless
they have a co-signer who
is over the age of 21 or
can demonstrate an
independent means to
repay.
Finally, rate increases
and fees will be prohibited
on outstanding balances
except in these four
situations:
1) The bank disclosed,
at the time the account
was opened, that the
Annual Percentage Rate
(APR) would increase
sooner (such as a
promotional or teaser
rate).
2) The APR for a
variable-rate card changes
due to increases in a
published index that is
outside the card issuer's
control, such as the prime
rate.
3) The cardholder is not
making the required
minimum payment for 60
days or more.
4) The cardholder fails
to comply with a workout
agreement made with the
company.

Recommendations
of the Center for
Responsible Lending:

Scrutinize all credit
card offers and terms,
especially the "fine print."
Pay the highest APR
balance first.
Segregate your card
use if possible. Customers
with enough available
credit should use separate
cards for borrowing at a

casual wear and formal wear. Most important, they will
display their personalities and interviewing skills while
interviewing with this year's Jacksonville judging panel.
Personality is the number one aspect that each contestant
is judged on during all phases of competition.
If either Tori or Elizabeth were to win the title of Miss
Teen Jacksonville, she would represent Jacksonville and
the surrounding communities at the Cities of America
National Competition that will take place in Orlando.
Over $60,000 in prizes and awards will be presented at
the National Competition while each winner enjoys this
expense paid trip of five nights and six days in Orlando.

Viewpoints/Opinions


MYRA C. REGAN ROBERT BRIDGES
Publisher Editor
Members of the Suwannee Democrat editorial board
are Myra C. Regan, publisher, and Robert Bridges, editor.
Our View is formed by that board.





OUR VIEW
Suwannee Democrat


A fair deal
With all due respect to state Sen. Charlie Dean, the
man's ties to Suwannee County are tenuous at best.
But then, a number of counties in Dean's district
could say the same thing. The former Citrus County
sheriff is simply stretched too thin or rather, Dis-
trict 3 itself is. An example of legislative gerryman-
dering at its best, District 3 begins in Citrus and
snakes its way north, taking in all or parts of Baker,
Columbia, Dixie, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lafayette,
Leon, Levy, Madison, Marion, Suwannee and Taylor
counties. As noted previously in this column, the dis-
trict resembles a large "C" shakily scrawled across
the northern half of the state. (See "Our View: Map-
making," in our online archives.)
The odds of somebody from Suwannee or a neigh-
boring county ever winning the seat? Pretty unlikely.
The bulk of the district's voters, as well as campaign
funds, are to be found in Citrus and Marion counties
alone.
Now comes the Fair Districts movement, about
which we wrote in the aforementioned column.
FairDistrictsFlorida.org proposed a simple, and we
think reasonable, solution to the plight of Suwannee
and other underrepresented Florida counties: no
more crazy-quilt districts. And maybe just maybe -
a better chance of electing a local man or woman to
represent us in the Florida Senate.
Here's the proposal, in the form of a ballot sum-
mary:
Legislative districts or districting plans may not be
drawn to favor or ,lif, ii an incumbent or political
party. Districts shall not be drawn to deny racial or
language minorities the equal opportunity to partic-
ipate in the political process and elect representa-
tives of their choice. Districts must be contiguous.
Unless otherwise required, districts must be com-
pact, as equal in population as f...,ilI.., and where
f. ,.il1.,. must make use of existing city, county and
geographical boundaries.
A twin proposal would do the same for Congres-
sional redistricting.
When we last wrote on this topic it wasn't clear
enough signatures would be gathered to get these
measures on the November ballot. We're pleased to
report that FairDistrictFlorida.org's petition drive
was successful. The Florida Supreme Court recently
certified a pair of constitutional amendments Num-
ber 5, on legislative redistricting, and Number 6, on
the Congressional side for voters' approval.
These amendments won't in themselves solve the
problem of legislative under-representation, but
they're the best shot we've had in a while.

To the Editor:


Your recent editorial, "Moment of Truth" (Jan. 28), regarding the City
of Live Oak's public works contract with CH2M HILL cites "supposed
concern for workers' rights" as the only rationale for the city not to open
the contract to public bidding. While the welfare of our local employees
and their future vesting is a very real and significant concern for both the
company and the city, it is far from the only one.
Any bid process incurs costs for advertising, staff time to review the
bids, etc. Furthermore, unlike commodities or capital projects, it can be
difficult to discern differences in professional services bids, to compare
apples to apples. Moreover, if the city ultimately does change service
providers, there are costs associated with any transition.
Finally, and perhaps most important, CH2M HILL has a proven track
record of success in Live Oak since 1997, starting with management of
the city's water and wastewater facilities then expanding eight years lat-
er to public works services that include solid waste collection and dis-
posal; city vehicle repair; and maintenance of streets, the cemetery, and
public spaces and grounds. This ongoing relationship earned the Nation-
al Council for Public Private Partnerships' Partnership Award in the ser-
vice category in 2005.
City officials have acknowledged that there are no performance issues.
Operating and contract costs are equal to or less than cities of similar size
and in neighboring jurisdictions. CH2M HILL is confident our combina-
tion of experience, expertise and pricing compares favorably to any oth-
er vendor in the market.
There are certainly valid reasons for going through a competitive bid
process. However, there also are times when such a process simply re-
sults in an unnecessary cost to taxpayers and an unnecessary risk to em-
ployee morale.

Sincerely,
Brent W Stauffer

The Democrat

responds
Note first, Mr. Stauffer, that
our comments were directed at
the Live Oak City Council, not
OMI. OMI is a private company
whose aim, presumably, is to
generate revenue and maximize
profit. The city council, on the
other hand, has different obliga-
tions.
As to the need for competitive
bidding, your comment on com-
paring "apples to apples" sums
it up nicely. Observing that
OMI's fees are "equal to or less
than cities of similar size and in
neighboring jurisdictions" hard-
ly proves we mightn't get a bet-
ter deal elsewhere. Surely there
are unique challenges to every
municipality, some of which are
"apples," others, "oranges."
As for OMI's "proven track
record of success," that is a fac-
tor to be considered when
weighing competing offers -
not an argument against com-
petitive bidding to begin with.

flooding

Local officials
keeping watch
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr
A flood warning issued
Monday by the National
Weather Service remains
in effect as another wet
weekend likely lies
ahead.
Suwannee County
Sheriff and Emergency
management Director
Tony Cameron said
Wednesday that area wa-
terways, particularly the
Santa Fe River at Three
Rivers Estates, aren't
likely to rise more than a
foot, as forecasters pre-
dict the possibility of
more rain in the coming
days.
"I don't think it will do
that much," Cameron
said. "This weekend, it at
all depends. They've only
predicted about a half an
inch to an inch or more,
if any."
Those who dwell in
flood-prone areas are
asked to remain vigilant
and to stay safe.
On Monday the water
had risen to almost 19
feet, tipping over into
flood stage. Meteorolo-
gists have predicted that
the water level could
continue to swell past 20
feet by Saturday if more
rain falls.
Road closures still re-
main for the south end of
39th Drive in Three
Rivers, as well as the
south end of River Run
Road. The possibility for
additional closures is
contingent upon the
amount of rainfall this
weekend.

The best of both worlds

Branford truly is a 'perfect setting' for Louise Marzloff


Louise, Andy & Avery. Photo: Joyce Marie Taylor, Correspondent


By Joyce Marie Taylor
Correspondent
By her own admission, Louise Marzloff
says that she is blessed with "the best of
both worlds," and after listening to her re-
count her life and her accomplishments,
one has to agree with her. With a new
granddaughter on the way and one of her
daughters in a ministry overseas, she has
much to be proud of and thankful for.
At this stage of her life, she was sup-
posed to be acting like a retired person.
She and her husband were supposed to be
traveling the world and enjoying their re-
tirement years, but Louise, who wasn't
quite ready to throw in the towel, had a
different agenda.


Born and raised in Mayo, Louise grew
up in a loving family on a tobacco and
watermelon farm, which instilled values
of home and hearth that have sustained
her throughout her life. She met and mar-
ried her husband, Andy, when the two of
them were in their twenties working to-
gether at General Electric in the city of
Alachua. Although Andy was born in
Gainesville, his family relocated to Mayo
when he was seventeen, where he gradu-
ated from Lafayette High School, and
also where he met his wife, Louise.
After five years at G.E., Louise was
laid off and so it was time to re-think her
career choices and try something differ-
ent. She wound up opening an office sup-


ply/craft store in Mayo, but after two
years she realized her heart wasn't quite
into it. Something was gnawing at her.
She knew she had a different mission in
life and after a while it would become
crystal clear what that mission was.
Meanwhile, her sister-in-law had
opened up the very first pre-school in
Mayo and Louise worked side-by-side
with her, until one day the suggestion was
made that the city of Branford was in dire
need of a pre-school, too. When the pres-
ident of the bank told her husband, Andy,
the same thing, the Marzloffs decided to
go for it in 1986. This coming August

Food for Thought

PRESTO CHANGE-O!
Magicians are known for changing one thing
into another.
1) The Philippines Several Years Ago: I read
back in the mid-90's that pornography [because
it was illegal] they would shred it and turn it into
Bibles. That is quite a change!
2) What Jesus Can Do With Us: One time a
preacher was asked if he really believed Jesus
turned water into wine. "Of course I do," replied
the preacher. "I've seen Him turn a drunkard into
a saint." Paul reminded us in II Cor. 3:18 "But we
all, with unveiled face, behold as in a mirror the
glory of the Lord, are being ti;'i'\fbiinJ into the
same image from glory to glory, just as by the
Spirit of the Lord."
3) During Paul's Day: Corinth was a city filled
with all kinds of immorality. There were thieves,
drunkards, revilers, robbers and idolaters. But
some of these were changed by Christ, Paul said
they were washed, sanctified, justified by the
power of Jesus Christ [I Cor. 6:9-11]. Then in
Paul's second letter to Corinth he said, "If anyone
is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have
passed away; behold all things are new." II Cor.
5:17

'Ax Men


features area aqua loggers


'Uncle Buck, 'Pond Bear' and others find sudden fame


By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com

JASPER This season of the History
Channel's "Ax Men" features two local
aqua loggers as part of a rugged new
crew who guide last season's stars
through the danger filled black water of
the Suwannee River in search of cut
timber that was lost in logging
campaigns years ago.
My father, Steve Livingston, is one of
those men.
On the first day of filming the reality
TV show, about the perils and high risks
involved in the logging business, my
mom said to my dad, "You're not even
going to shave? What about a haircut?"
Jasper native Steve "Uncle Buck"
Livingston chuckled and replied, "I'll
have to check with my producer first."
And so it began.
Four months later, I trekked across a
muddy timber yard where a few "Ax
Men," including my dad and fellow
Jasper native Patrick "Pond Bear"
Swilley, were sawing their most recent
findings into prized boards.

Third rule of logging:
Do not wear flip-flops.
"Hey now, remember, I'm the brains
of this operation," the laid back owner
of Collin's River Logging, Joe "Injun
Joe" Collins, shouts out as I approach.
"Yeah, yeah, I hear ya," scuba diver
Jessie "The Catfish" Horstman, replies.
After hours of playful bickering, the
development of the running joke "Shhh,
she'll write it down," and three logs
loaded, sawed, and later piled, the men
gather around a barrel fire of scrap
wood to discuss their newfound fame.
"It's awesome," Patrick said of his
newest, if temporary, career-TV
personality.
"Yeah, he's a regular Fresh Prince of
Jasper," Joe said jubilantly.

Second rule
of logging:
Bring your sense of humor.
"See, you should've worn some of
those multi-colored toe socks with your
flip flops," Joe said to me. "I used to
come walking' in the bar where my band
played with flip flops and 10 different
colored toes."
The filming on the Suwannee lasted
for more than six weeks. The camera
crew stayed at local hotels and rode out
to the job site each day, said Steve. For
Steve, getting to know the camera crew
and being "behind the scenes" of a
television show was the best part of
filming.
The camera crew followed last
season's foul-mouthed stars Jimmy and
James Smith as they traveled from
Washington to White Springs, and
teamed up with Collins River Logging
to recover century-old, but perfectly
preserved timber.
Things quickly turned into a West


Steve Livingston sawing lumber on a Wood-Mizar sawmill at his home near the Suwannee River in Jasper.


"Ax Men" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on the History Channel


versus South dynamic.
"We called them the west-coast
Yankees," joked Steve. "We were out to
show them what real aqua logging is
about."
Joe added: "It only took us a few
hours to melt them down and pour
them into the river." He cited last
Sunday's episode where James is shown
falling off the logging boat into the
Suwannee, ruining his cell phone as
well as his pride.
Next, the conversation changes to the
origination of their rather unique
nicknames used on the show.
"Steve's nickname comes from the
movie 'Uncle Buck' where John Candy
comes to baby-sit and leads the kids
astray," said Joe. "That's Steve; he's our
mischievous Uncle Buck."
During Steve's first appearance on
"Ax Men" he's shown sinking the
logging boat as a practical joke. "That
was too much," he says with a smile
after sending Jimmy and James running
for higher ground.
As for Patrick, it's easy for anyone
who knows him to figure out how he
got the nickname of "Pond Bear," said
the short, stocky and outspoken and
let's not forget hairy scuba diver.
"Once, he came up from diving and
had lily pads stuck to his back," said
Joe. "We just called him the Pond Bear
from then on."
Patrick steals the show later in the

season, but we'll have to wait and find
out how.
"The Hollywood comes out of our
man," joked Steve.
Patrick also wears a few new scars
from the shows filming, reminders of
the dangers involved in Suwannee
River logging.
First rule of logging:
Safety.
One thing the show does not over-
dramatize is the danger involved with
logging in the Suwannee.
"There are all kinds of interesting
things to run into," said Joe.
Disorienting dark water, gators, and
rocks are just a few examples of
hazards. "It scares the hell out of some
people."


"Whenever something rubs against
my leg in the Suwannee, I just tell
myself, 'It was just a mudfish, it was
just a mudfish,'" said Patrick. "I came
up on a manikin once. You can just
imagine."
Although all the men agreed being
"full-time Hollywood" would be great,
they said stardom is not what interests
them. They hope to use their transient
fame to better inform the public about
aqua logging and recovered wood. "It
has a positive impact on the
environment because it has the least
impact," said Steve.
"Every log we pull out of the river is a
tree that doesn't get cut," Joe added.
"But if nothing else, we got our 15
minutes of fame."

Blood ties


Continued From Page 1A

Messcher pair, who are
both students at Suwannee
Middle School, have em-
barked on individual ser-
vice projects to show just
how set for adulthood they
truly are.
Zac, a hemophiliac, has
pledged to raise $500 to-
ward hemophilia research
aiming to "help find a
cure" for the illness that
has plagued him his entire
life, he said. In hemophili-
acs, blood doesn't clot
properly, meaning even a
small cut or minor injury
can prove serious.
Becky, inspired by her
brother's plight and seek-
ing to make a difference on
her own, has vowed to ral-
ly everyone she can to do-
nate a total of 500 pints of
blood to help her brother
and others with blood dis-
orders.
The siblings began each
of their service projects at
the start of the new year,
hoping to meet their goals
by the time of their B'nai
Mitzvah the traditional
Jewish coming of age cer-
emony.
For Jewish boys like
Zac, 13 is the age at which
one becomes a man by
vowing to observe the
commandments and help-
ing lead religious services,
as outlined on the Web site
www.jewfaq.org. In addi-
tion, he may now be count-
ed in a minyan (the mini-
mum number of people
needed to perform certain
elements of religious ser-
vices), form binding con-
tracts, testify before reli-
gious courts and marry,
confirmed Rabbi Moshe
M. Elbaz, of Temple Israel
in Valdosta where the
Messchers attend services.


It's the celebrant's first
aliyah, or public recital of
the Five Books of Moses,
from the Torah.
"During Shabbat ser-
vices on a Saturday shortly
after the child's 13th birth-
day, or even the Monday
or Thursday weekday ser-
vices immediately after the
child's 13th birthday, the
celebrant is called up to the
Torah to recite a blessing
over the weekly reading,"
according to the Web site,
and is often required to
learn the entire haftarah, a
selection from the
prophets, Elbaz said.
For Jewish girls, age 12
marks that transition. In
Orthodox and Hasidic
practice, women are not
permitted to participate in
religious services in this
fashion, so a Bat Mitzvah
(a "daughter of the com-
mandments" ceremony),
if celebrated at all, is usu-
ally little more than a par-
ty. However, in other
forms of Judaism, the
girls do exactly the same
thing as the boys, Elbaz
noted.
"Boys and girls learn re-
ligious school training
from age 8, five years pri-
or to their Bar Mitzvah,
and study the Hebrew lan-
guage a year prior to their
ceremony," he said.
Both Zac and Becky
have been working hard to
learn the Hebrew text each
will recite.
"I'm ready," said Zac,
smiling, "but I'm not sure
about Becky."
"I'm not as good at
speaking Hebrew as him,"
Becky conceded.
Despite the challenges,
both Zac and Becky have
stayed focused on working
to complete their projects.
"They decided around


Thanksgiving to conceive
their projects," said the
pair's mother, Janet Mess-
cher. "They both wrote
scripts and made videos,
which they have posted on
YouTube under mitzvot-
project to get the word
out," Janet Messcher said.
Becky made posters, fly-
ers and participation
coupons, voiced a radio
announcement on Power
Country 102 several weeks
ago, and has even made

on the local Life South
blood mobile in Live Oak.
She's now hoping to do the
same in Valdosta. As of
Tuesday, she had collected
over 150 pints toward her
project 54 from kids at
SMS alone.
Zac, who has to take
medication three time
weekly by injection to con-
trol blood clotting and co-
agulation from broken
blood vessels in his ankles,
said his project is coming
along well, but "could use
a few more donations."
As of Wednesday, he
had raised $353 toward the
foundation Hemophilia of
Georgia, which will help
in part with research in
Florida.
"People can keep donat-
ing even after we reach
$500 to help find a cure for
hemophilia," Zac said.
Janet Messcher said she
is delighted by Zac and
Becky's hard work and
grateful to all who have
helped.
"I'm immensely proud
and amazed at how much
work they have accom-
plished," she said. "The
amount of help and feed-
back we've gotten from
friends, family and the
community has been in-
credible."


ordinances, zoning changes

site."
Daniels said he wants to
make sure the people of the
community know he will
be there anytime a question
needed answering. If he
doesn't know the answer,
he will find it, he said.
"People who don't know
me will find that I'm
frankly honest in a political
way," said Daniels.
Daniels said voters
should make a smart, in-
formed decision on who to
vote into city offices in
May.
"It's a very important
election and the people will
decide which way the city
will go," said Daniels.

The know-how
"I will use my knowl-
edge to assist you with is-


sues of concern or inter-
est."
Daniels' experience is
varied:
Graduated with an as-
sociate of arts in business
administration and a bache-
lor of science in business
education, along with mi-
nors in accounting and eco-
nomics, from Monmouth
University in 1973.

mitteeman, Barnegat Twp.,
N.J. 1976. Current popula-
tion 20,000-plus.
Served as police com-
missioner and deputy may-
or and oversaw building
and code enforcement.
Helped prepare multi-
million dollar school board
and municipal budgets.
Served as assistant
chief inspector for Fellows,
Reade, and Weber Engi-
neering 1977-78 before re-


locating to Suwannee
County.
Served county residents
as owner of Sports Connec-
tion, Delayna's Laundro-
mat and various rental
properties.
Finalist for Suwannee
County Coordinator.
Finalist for city of Live

Daniels has regularly
broadcast sporting events
on WQHL and WLVO for
the past 21 years and is ac-
tive in most school and
recreational athletics
throughout the county. He
also writes the Sportabout
column for the Suwannee
Democrat.

"I look forward to serv-
ing the people of Live
Oak," Daniels added.


Bennett announces bid

for county commission


Continued From Page 1A

"It's the big issue, it's
going to be my main fo-
cus," she said.
Attracting businesses to
the county will be the
biggest step in creating
more jobs here, she said.
"That's why I'm very in-
terested in this Catalyst
site," Bennett said. "I think
it could be a big boom to
the county."
The site she refers to is a
100-acre site west of Live
Oak that, when construct-
ed, would be a site that is
infrastructure ready for
new businesses to locate.
"I think it's very, very
important, just the fact that
I have a 19-year-old son, I
don't want him to have to
move away to get a job. I
want him to be able to raise
kids here."
She said what the county
has to do next is put to rest
the wet/dry issue.
"This is not a dry county,
we sell beer and wine
here," said Bennett. "I am
in favor of it (the county
going wet). The revenue
we're losing from not be-
ing wet is ridiculous."


Other pledges:

Bennett wants to be in-
volved in the community

"My pledge is to be to-
tally accessible to every-
body in my district," she
said. "They will know all
my phone numbers and
where I live. If I can help
someone or just find some-
body that can help them I
want to be able to. I want
the people in my district to
tell me what they feel."

County departments

"I want to be able to
spend time going to all
county departments, what
can we as commissioners
do to help," she said. "I
want to find out what, if
any, their concerns are. I
want them to be totally
comfortable talking with
me."

Communication

"If I were elected I
would make it a point to
communicate with my fel-
low commissioners. I


would want those in the
public to come to the meet-
ings and to not feel intimi-
dated. I think that's a big
thing. The communities
need to be very aware of
what's coming to them."

Research

"If I don't know some-
thing or understand it I will
take the time to do research
on the matter. I love to do
research."

Perimeter Road

"I understand keeping
big traffic from downtown,
but at the same time I don't
want the perimeter road to
take away from downtown.
I believe it's something we
need though."
Forty-four year old Ben-
nett is originally from
Massachusetts. She and her
husband Daniel are owners
of Bennett's Glass Compa-
ny in Live Oak. They have
a 19-year-old son, Harvey.
She has experience in
bookkeeping, payroll, ac-
counting, contracts and
management.

cio would pick up the hollowed out truck
batteries filled with cocaine from truck
drivers.
"You can fit between five and six kilo-
grams of cocaine in a hollowed out truck
battery," said Cole.
Then Garcia or Lucio would take one or
two of the batteries and immediately drive
them to customers in Jacksonville or Or-
ange Park.
"They would then take the money re-
ceived, less Garcia and Lucio's cut, and
put the money in the truck battery and take
it back to the truck drivers," said Cole.
From there the truck drivers would take
the money back to Mexico or Texas.
Garcia and Lucio made this run periodi-


cally between at least 2007, according to
court testimony, and Garcia's arrest in
June 2009, a day after selling drugs to a
confidential informant. Garcia pleaded
guilty to distributing about 600 pounds of
cocaine. Lucio will be sentenced on Feb.
25.
Sheriff Tony Cameron said he's glad the
drugs are off the streets.
"No matter where they are going, I'm
just glad it's been stopped," he said.
"They were taking away from our fami-
lies all over, it's a crime that ruins so
many lives."
Three others were also sentenced for
their roles. Umar "Old Man" Hassan, 60,
was sentenced to five years in prison and
Kenneth "Big Boy" Johnson, 36, was sen-
tenced to two years.

WELLBORN NEWS


Part of the pa
By Tim Williams
One of the things I love about living in a smaller
farming community is the way everything relates and
fits together with only a small degree of separation.
We have all heard the phrase "six degrees of separa-
tion" used to describe the connectivity we have to each
other especially to the folks we do not know or have
not met.
Well, I have certainly found this to be true in the
past, but since moving to Wellborn in 2004, it seems to
be true to a greater extent. It's as if the world used to
fit in my hand, but now it fits between two fingers.
Another thing I love about living in Wellborn is how
our neighbors are not just neighbors, but true friends. I
have found that in Wellborn, past and present, folks
just naturally work together and help each other. I am
reminded of an example of these two concepts every
day as I drive in and out of my driveway. As I come
and go, I pass a large rusting machine a feat of agri-
cultural engineering in its day and a testament to
agriculture's ability to adapt and thrive.
In 2005, I purchased the property between my house
and CR 137 in order to prevent a certain type of devel-
opment that I felt would not add to the value of our
neighborhood. There were some older structures on the
new property that were overgrown and unused. Soon
after my purchase, we experienced several hurricanes
passing through and one of the structures, an old stor-
age barn gave up the ghost and fell in. When the barn
finally succumbed to the years of neglect, wind and
rain, it offered a clearer glimpse of its former use and
what might be inside. We also lost some trees a few
weeks later that shaded the barn and the combination
of these calamities offered an uncovered glimpse into
the assortment of antiques and oddities stored in the
barn for all those years.
As we explored the barn, we found it contained a
large-wheeled frame supporting some type of combine
with several work stations and a large frame platform
for a part of the machine that was removed many years
before, based on the rust and debris on top.
About this same time later in the spring, one of my
neighbors, Phillip Foster, who owns Sunsations Lawn
and Landscape, was able to shed some light on the ori-
gin of the combine. Philip told me that the Owens
family used to own or farm my property and that his
grandfather, J. W. Foster, partnered with another neigh-
bor to buy and use the combine. Together, they com-
bined small grains, and he thinks even some grass seed
perhaps.
Of course time passed and we got busy with other
things but as the wood from the frame and siding of
the barn began to slowly be pulled off and stacked up
and carried off "when no one was looking" by persons
unknown, the combine saw more and more daylight
and spent more time on my mind. When I finally
cleaned out the area where the barn was, to save the
last of the barn wood for myself, I moved the machine
(with a lot of help from my neighbors) to my yard up
near the house where it sits today on land it once
combined. Bill Knotts, another fantastic neighbor who
is married to Connie (Hogan) Knotts, gave me more
information about the combine. His wife's father,
Mont Hogan, was the other owner of the machine. Bill
is sure it was purchased prior to 1961 as Mont Hogan
went south to the Palm Beach area to farm in 1961.
Bill also believes, as Philip Foster does, that the com-
bine was used to combine a variety of crops all here in
Wellborn. I can't help but think that the more things
change the more they stay the same as Stanley Cribbs
and his brother Rodney pull in with their cutters and
balers to clean off the old Bahia so I can plant my oats.
I have the land and grow the hay and they have the
equipment so we "crop share" on the hay operation.
While we don't own any equipment together, without
either contribution, it just wouldn't work.
Neighbors and friends still sharing equipment and
farming in Wellborn, 70 years and counting!

Live Oak is site for farming academy


University of Florida of-
ficials are nearly ready to
launch a Live Oak-based
academy aimed at helping
novice small farmers as
well as those who just want
to improve the small farm
they have.
Ninety-three percent of
Florida's 47,000 farms are
classified by the federal
government as "small." But
those farms earn less than
one-fifth of the state's agri-
cultural receipts, said Nick
Comerford, director of the
North Florida Research and
Education Center in Quin-
cy.
Around the country,
there is a similar split be-
tween small and large
farms, he said, but national-
ly, small farmers are faring
better than Florida's small
farmers.
Helping change that was
the impetus behind the In-
stitute of Food and Agricul-


tural Sciences' Small
Farms Academy, said Com-
erford, the academy's inter-
im director. Officials hope
to officially launch the
academy in April and to
have a full curriculum by
July 1.
The academy will be ini-
tially based at the North
Florida Research and Edu-
cation Center's Suwannee
Valley campus in Live Oak.
"It will be a different
kind of program ... very in-
tensive and hands-on for a
couple of days. We want
them to have good materi-
als they can take home and
make part of their library
and to just be ready to go
home and do the work," he
said.
IFAS extension officials
offered a hands-on short
course in March 2009 on
starting a hydroponic-farm-
ing business that was well
received, he said. And

Councilman Stewart said he was
all about the bottom line when he
took office. Here is the bottom
line. OMI costs the City $1,000 an
hour. This does not include gas or
parts.
$2,400,000 a year translates to
$200,000 a month. The average
month includes 20 work days of 8
hours each or 160 hours. Allowing
for 40 hours of overtime a month
that is 200 hours worked a month.
200 hours divided into $200,000
equals $1,000 an hour or $10,000 a
day this allow for 2 hours OT
every work day.
This is the equivalent of paying
40 people a day $20 an hour to
work taking out 20% for labor ex-
pense. These are your numbers
Councilman Stewart lets see how
you can Flip Flop them.

My hats off and a big hey you! to
the guy that called in and was com-
plaining about the way they grade
the roads. He hit the nail on the
head, they sure need to do some-
thing about this. Thank ya'll, have
a great day, and hopefully they will
get it right.

Thanks to the Suwannee Democ-
rat for the article on the new bio-
mass plant to be built in Hamilton
County. We're not an expert in this
field, but I have never read an arti-
cle with more pros and cons for
building such a plant. On the pro


side, it is supposed to be clean,
with little side effects, there is sup-
posed to be adequate fuel to keep
the plant running, the financial
benefits will be good, and we will
get rid of trash wood left over after
the forest is removed. On the con
side, it is reported to be dirty, and
according to experts, there isn't
enough forest waste within a 50-
mile radius to supply this plant and
some think this will remove nutri-
ents needed to regrow the forests.
They are talking about building
these plants from Gainesville to
Georgia. I sure hope the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection
knows what it is doing. Bye.

On January 25th, the Cook Po-
litical Report showed our Con-
gressional District, with our Rep-
resentative, Allen Boyd, to be
"likely" to remain a Democrat
seat, and therefore vote, after the
2010 elections in November. By
this, they mean that theseee seats
are not considered competitive at
this point but have the potential to
become engaged." This is the
case even though they also show
that our district, FL-02, voted for
the 2004 and 2008 Republican
presidential tickets 6 percentage
points more than was the average
for the whole country. Allen
Boyd's votes in Congress support
the Democrat position 95% of the
time, according to www.open-
congress.org, such as the 'porku-
lus' stimulus bill and cap-and-tax
bill, for which he voted, and

against the Stupak pro-life
amendment to the health care bill.
Mark Greenbaum of Roll Call
newspaper said on January 25th
(http://www.rollcall.com/news/42

politically afford to vote yes" on
the health care bill, even if we, his
constituents, are against it. Let's
help our Congressional seat "be-
come engaged!" Investigate what
Allen Boyd really supports.

I must agree with Mr. Hill. Why
aren't the agendas for the City
Council meetings published in ad-
vance for citizens to review? Isn't
this the responsibility of the City

of our GREATEST


Teacher of the Year to


be announced Tuesday


LISA GRAY
Suwannee Primary School
Kindergarten


Gray began her ca-
reer in 1994 as a fifth-
grade teacher and holds
a bachelor's degree in
elementary education
and a master's degree
in teaching and learn-
ing.
"I believe my greatest contribution to
the education of my students has been to
set high expectations for my students and
to inspire them to achieve those goals. I
have found that children give what you ex-
pect them to give at any grade level."


NANNETTE "SAM" BUNCE
Branford High School
Eighth grade language
arts/ninth grade English

Bunce began her ca-
reer as a second grade
teacher in 1972 at
Lealman Elementary
in St. Petersburg. She
holds a bachelor's de-
gree in education from
the University of South
Florida.
"It is my hope that my greatest contribu-
tion to my students is teaching them some-
thing 'beautiful' everyday. Each day in my
classroom I endeavor to teach a word, a
phrase, or perhaps study a literary work
with that embodies a universal truth that
my students may apply to themselves. My
desire is that I will encourage my students
to continue to pass on these 'beautiful'
thoughts and truths to someone else, thus
continuing the cycle so important in the
communication process. Shared knowl-
edge endures."


LAURA KATHERINE
ROBERTS
Suwannee
Elementary School
Second and
third grade gifted


Roberts began her
career as a second
grade teacher in 2005.


She holds a bachelor of science degree in
early childhood education from Valdosta
State University and a master's in educa-
tion in emotional disturbances/learning
disabilities from Florida State University.
"My greatest contribution to the educa-
tion of my students is the strong, coopera-
tive classroom climate that I try to build
every year. From the first day of school to
the last, I try very hard to develop a cohe-
sive classroom structure where the stu-
dents feel comfortable and valued, almost
like our own 'school family.' One of my
favorite teachers/authors, Rafe Esquth, has
two rules in his classroom: be nice and
work hard. I use these two rules well.
Kindness and hard work are the founda-
tions of our classroom. My students must
always try to do their best, and above all,
they must be nice to one another! We try to
end our day each day with a compliment
circle, where students practice saying kind
words to one another. They have to know
they can trust me and that they can trust
their classmates. Social and emotional
needs are often neglected in our schools to-
day, but I feel that they must be addressed
before academic needs can even be consid-
ered. I know that if my students feel happy,
enthusiastic and comfortable, they are
more likely to be successful with academ-
ic endeavors."


THEDA SEVERANCE
Suwannee Intermediate School
Fourth grade

Severance began her
career as an art teacher
and site coordinator
for the 21st Century
After School Program
in 2001. She holds a
bachelor's of science
degree in education
grades 1-6.
"I always have a positive attitude and I
stress the importance of education to my
students. I also take on the role as their
'second mom' and teach them that honesty
is the best policy. For example, I tell my
students that if they have always been hon-
est with me, I will believe them if they are
telling me about a big purple monster in
the hallway."

Contact Hillary Cannon,
386-647-4617, for tickets,
cost of which is $25.


LINDA KELLER
Branford Elementary School
Kindergarten


Keller began her ca-
reer as a second grade
teacher in 1978. She
holds a bachelor of arts
in education.
I believe that the
greatest contribution I
make is making chil-
dren aware that they
don't need to settle for second best. My
children know that I expect them to be 'go-
getters', not just 'satisfied customers!'
When goals are set high, more is achieved
by the students, even if the goals are not
met!"


MELISSA CAMERON
Suwannee Middle School
Seventh and eighth grade art

Cameron began her
career in 1995 as a
fourth grade teacher at
Suwannee East Ele-
mentary. She holds a '
Bachelor of Arts in
liberal arts and sci- 1 7
ences from the Univer-
sity of Florida.
I want my students to feel loved and
confident, so that they can perform well in
their daily lives. Unfortunately, many stu-
dents begin my art class with a closed and
stubborn mind of fearful attitude. Many of
them think they cannot be successful in an
area in which they have not excelled in the
past. I strive to open my students' minds,
help them break old habits and barriers,
and show them that they can soar to new
heights that they never dreamed possible. I
emphasize that when trying to master any
skill. Hard work, determination, practice,
and perseverance guarantees success! The
greatest contribution I make to the educa-
tion of my students is when I see these
habits and traits evident in my classroom
- but more importantly overflowing
into other aspects of their lives."


CANDY VICKERS
Suwannee High School
Exceptional Student
Education grades 9-12


Vickers began teach-
ing varying exception-
alities kindergarten
through 5th grade in
1979. She holds a
Bachelor of Science
degree in special edu-
cation.


"I believe my greatest contribution is be-
lieving and showing not only my students
but their families, friends, peers and com-
munity that our students are capable of
overcoming many obstacles that people do
not believe they can do. People feel that
because they are mentally handicapped
they are not capable of being independent
or responsible, much less hold down a job.
If the students are shown and expected to
behave responsibly, they will. It may take
the students longer to learn a skill or they
may need to learn it in a different style
than others, along with a lot of extra work
and patience, but they are capable of learn-
ing. If people would just look beyond their
handicaps they would see and know some
beautiful individuals."


MELISSA MAPP-
FRANCISCO
Suwannee-Hamilton Technical Center
Medical Clinical Programs
and Office Technology

Mapp-Francisco be-
gan her career in 1994
as a 9th through 12th
grade biology teacher
and llth and 12th
grade anatomy and
physiology instructor.
She earned her Bache-
lor of Health degree in
community education from Florida State
University.
She states that her greatest contribution
to the education of her students is: c' og-
nizing that each student learns differently
and possesses unique talents; teaching to
accommodate different learning styles and
levels of abilities; incorporating state stan-
dards into curriculum; providing education
relevant to today's job skills/job market,
ensuring more productive citizens; supply-
ing Suwannee County's students with
skills and abilities using today's latest
tclliniihl--::,. forming lasting pen relation-
ships with our business community to bet-
ter anticipate skills required for successful
employment; enabling students to have a
comprehensive idea of what will be ex-
pected in the "real world" using my Work-
force Development background; passing
on practical knowledge that my students
will need in the ever evolving workforce;
and proving to my students that education
is the key to success."

The Suwannee County
School District Teacher of
the Year will be announced
Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at an
annual banquet in the Ann &
Quinton Rumph Dining Room

fill. When the other containers are full, the
county tries to sell the recyclables.
"There's a very limited market for it. If
there is a market for it we will take it and
sell it," said Sikes. If not, "it goes to the
landfill."
The igloos at some county refuse sites
are labeled "aluminum cans," "clear
glass," "newspapers" and "plastic."
Hoffett said he and his fellow students
were discouraged.


"We are trying to accomplish some-
thing," he said. "But the county is just
turning that around and filling up landfills
with all of these recyclables we've collect-
ed that could be used again and not waste
other materials."
Hendry said club members are circulat-
ing a petition at school to convince the
county to commence a more comprehen-
sive recycling program. She said the peti-
tion will be presented to county commis-
sioners at a future meeting.

COMMENTARY


Before

Andra

Davis

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
Suwannee is
sure proud to
have THREE
players
currently in the /
NFL. Andra
Davis, Kelly
Jennings and Bruce Johnson.
Before them Jimmy Nelson,
Dale McCullers and Del
Williams, SHS alumni all, are
etched somewhere in pro
football's almanac.
As Black History Month
unfolds so does the story of
another Suwannee player.
Edmund Nelson lists his
birthplace as Live Oak,
Florida. Nelson was bom here
in April of 1960. His two
older brothers went on to
careers, one coaching in
Tampa for 35 years and
another retiring as a Major
out of the U.S. military.
Edmund's career was one that
went unnoticed in his
birthplace.
Nelson moved from Live
Oak as a youngster, his dad
was career military. It was our
loss as Edmund not only
played in Hillsborough
County, he starred there. He
won Tampa's Guy Toph
award given to the area's
outstanding high school
football player. He was given
a scholarship to Auburn
where he excelled and won
the Cliff Hare award as their
outstanding player. He was
also named MVP in the 1982
Blue-Gray game.
After being coached by
Chuck Noll in the Senior
Bowl, the Steeler coach chose
him in the seventh round of
the NFL draft. In those days
the draft was 12 rounds. He
was the 172nd player picked.
The first Suwannee County-
bom black NFL football
player. He had an outstanding
career for the Steelers,
starting 43 games along the
defensive line from 1982-
1987. He retired as a Patriot
in 1988 with stops in

tipoff by big Jarvis George. Guard Marcus
Lane shot with precision, and led the team
with 17 points and one steal. Lane shot 75
percent from the field and made five of five
three point shots with assists from Jimmie
Taylor, Tony Frierson, AJ Robinson, and
Alex Robinson. Taylor added nine points in
the first half, eight rebounds and three as-
sists. Frierson played tight defense and
pulled down 10 rebounds. He also had one
steal and three assists. AJ Robinson added

'Dogs lose


dogfight


Perry takes win over
Suwannee Jan. 22


The Suwannee High
School JV basketball team
lost to the Perry Bulldogs
67-60 Jan. 22, for the
team's second loss of the
year.
The game was fast-
paced from the beginning,
resulting in an uncharac-
teristic 24 turnovers from
the Suwannee offense.
The majority of the
turnovers were from pass-
ing (17) or dribbling (3)
errors, as Perry's defense
was tenacious and quick
to intercept, steal, strip
and recover the ball. Perry
had an exceptional shoot-
ing night from the field
which made their offense
efficient, and gained a
large number of layup
points by breaking an in-
effective Suwannee full
court press. The referee
whistles remained very
quiet as Suwannee shot
very few free throws.
Suwannee only went to
the line three times in the
second half, late in the
fourth quarter off several
inside drives by Jimmie
Taylor. Finally, the con-
sistent weak point of the
team this season has been
unfouled missed layups,


14 in this game. This fi-
nally caught up to Suwan-
nee who have led by such
large margins in most
games this season that it
hasn't impacted the final
outcome.
Perry led the game from
the jump, ahead 34-31 at
the half and 51-39 by the
end of the third, even
though the score had
pulled to within one point.
However, Suwannee
showed a spark of life in
the fourth and pulled to
62-57 with 57 seconds left
on the clock. Taylor
brought his game inside
the paint to shoot and
draw free throws as Mar-
cus Lane hit a three-point
shot with 20 seconds left,
but Perry had pulled
ahead on free throws as
the Bulldogs lost by sev-
en. Scoring for the 'Dogs
was led by Taylor with 25
points. He also had 10 re-
bounds and one assist.
Guard Lane shot 54 per-
cent from the field to add
18 points and had a no-
table rebounding night
with six. He also added
one assist. Tony Frierson
had seven points, seven
rebounds, and two assists.

five points, two steals and
two assists. Guard Don-
tavius Hampton had a
strong offensive night,
leading the bench with 14
points while shooting 86
percent from the field,
many off fast breaks and
transition shots. Other
scorers were Jarvis
George (6), Austin Miller
(9), Austin Collins (4) and
Alex Robinson (1).

'Dogs take Ft. White
68-34
On Jan. 29, the guys de-
feated Ft. White in their
last home game of the sea-
son 68-34.
Suwannee led the game
from the start, but turned
up the heat in the third
quarter with an aggressive
full-court press. Scoring
was led by Marcus Lane,
who had 17 points in the
first half and finished the
night with 20, one steal,
six rebounds and one as-
sist. Jimmie Taylor had a
strong defensive night
with nine rebounds, five
steals, three assists and 13
points. Jarvis George
showed some life with
three steals, several
blocks, four rebounds and
four points. AJ Robinson
had three steals, six points,
three rebounds and one as-
sist. Other scorers: (Pts,
Rbs, Ast, Stl) Alex Robin-
son (9-4-1-2), Frierson
(5-8-2), D. Ross ( 6-0-0),


Hampton (2-5-2) and
Miller (3-1-0).

Suwannee downs
Santa Fe 54-43
Suwannee then travelled
to Santa Fe Jan. 30, beat-
ing that team 54-43.
The Raiders came out on
fire with quick offense,
three point shots and a
good defense to open with
a 9-2 lead. However,
Suwannee gained their
composure to bring the
score up to 15-13 by the
end of the first. By the half
the score was 26-20 in fa-
vor of Suwannee. Deter-
mination, defense and
steals from AJ Robinson
and a notable game by
Jarvis George pulled the
'Dogs up to 44-29 by the
end of the third.
Tony Frierson led the
night scoring from the in-
side with 14 points, seven
rebounds, two steals, one
shot block and shot 63
percent. AJ Robinson put
up nine points and three
steals, while Jimmie Tay-
lor denied Raider putbacks
with 10 defensive re-
bounds. Taylor had one
offensive rebound, two
steals and nine points.
Marcus Lane scored 10
points and had two steals.
Finally, Big Jarvis
George showed some
spunk and scored 11
points, shooting 75 percent
from the free throw line
with four blocked Raider
shots.

REGRETS, REMORSE

AND MISSED OPPORTUNITIES


IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GO THROUGH LIFE
WITHOUT MAKING MISTAKES AND E
MISSING OUT ON CERTAIN
OPPORTUNITIES, AND THESE MISTAKES ,N
AND MISSED OPPORTUNITIES ARE
OFTEN THE SOURCE OF CONSIDERABLE
REGRET OR REMORSE. THE FACT THAT
WE OFTEN HAVE CONSIDERABLE
DIFFICULTY GETTING OVER SOME PAST
FAILING 15 EVIDENCE THAT WE ARE
MORAL CREATURES AND THIS IS GOOD
IN MANY WAYS. MISTAKES HAVE A WAY
OF TEACHING US AND KEEPING US
FROM REPEATING OUR MISTAKES. BUT
ONCE WE HAVE LEARNED THE LESSON
FROM OUR FAILINGS, IT IS TIME TO
MOVE ON. THE PROBLEM WITH DWELLING ON PAST SINS OR MISSED
OPPORTUNITIES IS THAT IT KEEPS US MIRED IN THE UNCHANGEABLE
PAST RATHER THAN MOVING FORWARD INTO A FUTURE THAT WE CAN
ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT. IF WE HAVE WRONGED SOMEONE
IN THE PAST AND WE HAVEN'T TOLD THEM WE ARE SORRY, WE
SHOULD DO SO AND THEN MOVE ON WITH OUR LIFE. WE MAY NOT
BE ABLE TO FORGET THIS SIN OF OUR PAST, BUT WE SHOULD BE ABLE
TO FORGIVE OURSELVES AND MOVE ON. FOCUS ON THE FUTURE AND
CONSIDER HOW WE MIGHT LIVE OUR LIVES IN SUCH A WAY THAT WE
WON'T REPEAT THESE MISTAKES, OR MISS OUT ON FUTURE
OPPORTUNITIES.

RELIGION


Feeling like a complete failure, a beautiful
young mom responded to a parenting class I
was teaching with tears. After hearing her
story, I related to those feelings, without a
doubt, being a parent is hands-down the
hardest job on the planet! With two grown
sons and a teenage daughter under our belt,
you would think my husband and I would
feel some confidence in knowing what we
are doing. But, many days we don't! In fact, He
it is surprising to learn how many parents M
feel inadequate and even helpless in raising Mal
their children. Most Dads and Moms admit By Aln
to losing sleep over the impact their failures
and past mistakes will have on their chil-
dren's future. During these times we need to re-
mind ourselves that as parents, we can't change the
past, the future is yet unwritten, and that God's pur-
poses for our children's lives can outweigh our mis-
takes.
Authors Dennis and Barbara Rainey tell the story
of "Wrong Way Riegels", a football player for the
University of California in the 1929 Rose Bowl.
Seems that Riegels made one of the most famous
mistakes in the history of football when he picked
up a fumble and ran for more than 60 yards in the
wrong direction! He was finally tackled by his own
teammate just inside the 10-yard line. At halftime,
his coach gave a rousing pep talk to the discouraged
team and declared, "Same team that started the first
half, will start the second half." This meant Riegels
would be starting. The other players headed for the
field without him as he explained, "Coach, I cannot
go out there, I'm humiliated." The coach looked
Riegels in the face and said, "This game is only half
over, now get out there and play the rest of it."

SThose words are worth remembering to-
day for us parents. Maybe you have a pre-
teen or teenager and think, "This game is
almost over-in just a few years they will be
gone." Or your oldest may be 21 or even
1 29, and you look back to recount and re-
gret your mistakes, deciding the game is
over. Hear the words of Galatians 6:9:
"Let us not grow weary in doing good,
rt for at the proper time we will reap a har-
vest if we do not give up."
ters Do you feel like a failure as a parent?
e Land Accepting responsibility for the mistakes
we have made is a great way to ensure the
future looks different than the past, and
never underestimate the power of a simple, heartfelt
:p,% h. -.',. (I have said, "I'm sorry" to my three more
times than I can count!) Sometimes we may need to
accept our older children's choices as their own and
realize they have different dreams for their life than
we do. As our children grow up, our control grows
less, but our influence can remain if we keep the
lines of communication open. Ask God to encour-
age you not to grow weary in doing good as a par-
ent, your children need you. Because Every Heart
Matters.

The hardest job



on the planet


dmatier@ windstream.net

Einstein's Theory of Rela-
tivity was a theory of science,
having to do with the speed of
light in a vacuum, mathemati-
cal forms of physics, mass and
energy, etc. He never meant
for the term relative to be ap-
plied to ethics and yet in our
day we have a whole genera-
tion of people, including
Christian people, who claim to
go by the teachings of the
Bible claiming, "Everything is
relative; nothing is black, or
white." The word abomination
is seldom heard in our modern
world of relativism where
everything is considered rela-
tive.
But the Bible tells us that
there are practices that are
definitely wrong and the
choice is not left up to you;
God has already ruled on it in
His Word, you just need to lis-
ten: God's Word tells us that
women are not to dress to look
like men and men are not to
dress to look like women.
"The woman shall not wear
that which pertains unto a
man, neither shall a man put
on a woman's garment: for all
that do so are abomination
unto the Lord thy God." A
woman doesn't have to wear a
skirt all the time but God said
it is wrong for her to dress to
purposely look like a man and
it is wrong for a man to be a
cross dresser! No relativity
here.
Human sacrifice is forbid-
den! "There shall not be found
among you any one that
maketh his son or his daughter
to pass through the fire ... "
(Deuteronomy 18:10). In other
words you are not to use your
children as human sacrifices to
God or any other god. God
says, "Don't do it!"
God's Word says it is an
abomination to use tarot cards,
the Ouija board, seek advice
from spiritualist, witches, etc.
"... or that useth divination, or
an observer of times, or an en-
chanter, or a witch, or a
charmer, or a consulter with
familiar spirits, or a wizard, or
a necromancer. For all that do
these things are and abomina-
tion unto the Lord:"
(Deuteronomy 18:10-12). God

Sdid not leave any
room for relativism.
He didn't leave you
guessing! THERE IS
A RIGHT AND A
WRONG!
"And the man that
committeth adultery
with another man's wife, even
he that committeth adultery
with his neighbor's wife, the
adulterer and the adulteress
shall surely be put to death,"
(Leviticus 20:10). "Adultery, a
sin that you laugh at when it is
so freely talked about on the
sitcoms and yet God's Word
said it was worthy of death.
Why? Because the relationship
of a man and his wife is a pic-
ture of the relationship of
Christ and the church "Hus-
bands, love your wives, even
as Christ also loved the
church, and gave himself for
it; that he might sanctify and
cleanse it with the washing of
water by the word ... For this
cause shall a man leave his fa-
ther and mother, and shall be
joined unto his wife, and they
two shall be one flesh. This is
a great mystery; but I speak
concerning Christ and the
church," (Ephesians 5:25, 26,
31, 32). Jesus took it a step
further saying, "Ye have heard
that it was said by them of old
time, Thou shalt not commit
adultery: But I say unto you,
That whosoever looketh on a
woman to lust after her hath
committed adultery with her
already in his heart,"
(Matthew 5:27, 28).
And we can see from the
Bible that the practices of gays
and lesbians is no relative
matter either. "Thou shalt not
lie with mankind, as with
womankind; it is an abomina-
tion," (Leviticus 18:22). God's
Word condemns these prac-
tices and so many more. But
so many say you can't tell oth-
ers they can't do such-and-
such because he/she must
make his/her own choice. Yes,
but you, as a Christian and a
student of the Word of God
have an obligation to set forth
the TRUTH. Jesus said,
"Sanctify them through thy
truth: THY WORD IS
TRUTH," (John 17:17).
Everyone reading this mes-
sage knows people involved in
sin. Don't be afraid to con-
front your loved ones when
the opportunity arises because
it is wrong, but you must do it
in LOVE. Check your motive
for confronting them.

Theda Severance Fourth gradeBy Jeff Watersjeff.waters@gaflnews.com"What have we been doing for the past five months?" That's what Suwannee High School student Sebastian Hoffett wants to know after he and other members of the SHS Environmental Club learned that recyclables they labored to collect were sent to the landfill instead. The students started a recycling program to deal with the large quantities of paper and plastic drinking bottles being used at the school. Club sponsor and SHS teacher Amy Hendry said bins were set up throughout the school and the response was great. "We raised money to buy recycling bins and promotional posters and got our maintenance department to agree to pick up and drop off the recycling," said Hendry. "It just started to catch on." Only later did she learn that Suwannee County was not recycling the material. "I called maintenance to tell them they had forgotten to pick up our bins and I was told that they had been told that there is no recycling in Suwannee County," she said. True to a degree, according to Public Works Director Jerry Sikes. "It's an on-again and off-again thing," said Sikes. Sikes said the igloos located at county refuse collection sites are there for folks to drop off aluminum cans, plastics and newspapers.

In the article I stated that Congress had recently voted-in some changes to credit card regulations. That wasn't quite true. At that time the Federal Reserve had set up the new rules but Congress had not yet voted on them. At this writing the Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009 the Credit CARD Act has been passed by lawmakers. Some of those rules went into effect last August while many will take effect on Feb. 22. Still others will not be enforced until August 22 of this year. These regulations are intended to protect consumers from deceptive practices employed by some credit card companies. Besides those mentioned in my previous article, EXTENSION UPDATEWhat you should know about the new credit card rulessome of the key provisions in the Credit CARD Act are: * Credit card companies will be required to send out monthly statements at least 21 days prior to the due date of each payment and the payment must be due on the same date each month. Due dates that fall on weekends or holidays will be accepted on the next workday and the deadline will be 5 p.m. consistently. * Over-limit fees will be optional for the consumer. In other words, if you are about to make a purchase that would cause you to go over your credit limit incurring a fee, you will be notified at that time and given the option to make the purchase and accept the fee or decline the purchase. Once you choose not to receive these fees, any transactions exceeding your credit limit will be denied. * Your credit card company must notify you 45 days prior to: increasing your interest rate; changing certain fees that apply to your account; or making other significant changes to your account. It must give you the chance to "opt out" of the changes by allowing you to close the account before the changes are made. * Monthly statements must now include information about how long it will take to pay off the balance when the minimum payment is made. In accordance with the new law, it will also tell you how much your monthly payments will need to be in order to pay the balance in 12, 24, or 36 months. * Companies will be prohibited from issuing credit cards to consumers under the age of 21 unless they have a co-signer who is over the age of 21 or can demonstrate an independent means to repay. * Finally, rate increases and fees will be prohibited on outstanding balances except in these four situations: 1) The bank disclosed, at the time the account was opened, that the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) would increase sooner (such as a promotional or teaser rate). 2) The APR for a variable-rate card changes due to increases in a published index that is outside the card issuer's control, such as the prime rate. 3) The cardholder is not making the required minimum payment for 60 days or more. 4) The cardholder fails to comply with a workout agreement made with the company. Recommendations of the Centerfor Responsible Lending: * Scrutinize all credit card offers and terms, especially the "fine print." * Pay the highest APR balance first. * Segregate your card use if possible. Customers with enough available credit should use separate cards for borrowing at a promotional rate, making purchases, and taking cash advances. This makes it easier to pay the most to the card with the highest rate. * Avoid credit cards that include penalty rate options. * Watch your statement closely. If you have a card that includes a penalty rate, take a look at your APR every time you get your monthly statement to make sure your account has not been repriced. If it has, try to move that balance elsewhere. If you cannot transfer the balance, try to pay down the balance as soon as possible, and do not charge anything further on that card. The new regulations are truly a step in the right direction in helping consumers to use credit more wisely; but it is up to each of us to be informed about our own credit cards.

Regan, pub lisher , and Rober t Br idges , editor . Our Vie w is f or med b y that board.OUR VIEWSuwannee DemocratW ith all due respect to state Sen. Charlie Dean, the man' s ties to Suwannee County are tenuous at best. But then, a number of counties in Dean' s district could say the same thing. The former Citrus County sherif f is simply stretched too thin Ð or rather , Dis trict 3 itself is. An example of legislative gerryman dering at its best, District 3 begins in Citrus and snakes its way north, taking in all or parts of Baker , Columbia, Dixie, Hamilton, Jef ferson, Lafayette, Leon, Levy , Madison, Marion, Suwannee and T aylor counties. As noted previously in this column, the dis trict resembles a lar ge "C" shakily scrawled across the northern half of the state. (See "Our V iew: Mapmaking," in our online archives.) The odds of somebody from Suwannee or a neigh boring county ever winning the seat? Pretty unlikely . The bulk of the district's voters, as well as campaign funds, are to be found in Citrus and Marion counties alone. Now comes the Fair Districts movement, about which we wrote in the aforementioned column. FairDistrictsFlorida.org proposed a simple, and we think reasonable, solution to the plight of Suwannee and other underrepresented Florida counties: no more crazy-quilt districts. And maybe Ð just maybe Ð a better chance of electing a local man or woman to represent us in the Florida Senate. Here's the proposal, in the form of a ballot summary: Legislative districts or districting plans may not be drawn to favor or disfavor an incumbent or political party. Districts shall not be drawn to deny racial or language minorities the equal opportunity to participate in the political process and elect representatives of their choice. Districts must be contiguous. Unless otherwise required,districts must be compact,as equal in population as feasible,and where feasible must make use of existing city,county and geographical boundaries. Atwin proposal would do the same for Congressional redistricting. When we last wrote on this topic it wasn't clear enough signatures would be gathered to get these measures on the November ballot. We're pleased to report that FairDistrictFlorida.org's petition drive was successful. The Florida Supreme Court recently certified a pair of constitutional amendments Ð Number 5, on legislative redistricting, and Number 6, on the Congressional side Ð for voters'approval. These amendments won't in themselves solve the problem of legislative under-representation, but they're the best shot we've had in a while. Afair dealBIBLE VERSE"I love you, O LORD, my strength.

Note:In written entries to Rant and Rave,errors in spelling,grammar or punctuation are those of the authors. ~~ I have a question and I would like to have an answer. I was told in Lake City, at the Family Dollar Store and at Walgreens as of Feb. 1, the new law for Florida plastic bags goes into effect, and they will not be providing them for free anymore. I have asked Wal Mart and Publix in Lake City and Live Oak and no one seems to know. Could you please tell me if this is a law and when it will be going into effect? Thank you very much. No such law is yet in effect. February 1 was the deadline for completion of a Florida Department of Environmental Protection study on the environmental impact of paper and plastic shopping bags. The study also addressed the possibility of a ban on either or both,but that's for the Florida Legislature to decide. Presumably lawmakers will take up the issue in March,during the regular legislative session. We're watching the issue closely and will keep you informed of further developments. EditorThis letter is intended as a plea as well as a "Rant & Rave." I'm asking people to please think before you abandon your pet. First it was a pregnant cat. We paid to have the cat spayed and raised her until she died. I was able to take the kittens to the "no kill" facility in Madison. That was not free. Next a pregnant dog. We are able to find homes for some of the puppies and made another trip to Madison for the rest. Again not free. Now, again a male puppy. I will take him to Madison. Meanwhile I will feed and care for him until they can accept him. They can only take animals when they have room. I urge you to think about the inconvenience to other people and trauma to the animal.Please forgive the first advertisement to bid on the piping at the county jail. It must have been the writer's first attempt. And all the other people involved obviously either didn't read, it or they are incompetent. ONLINE OPPORTUNITYThis poll is not scientific and reflects the opinions of only those Internet users who have chosen to participate. The results cannot be assumed to represent the opinions of Internet users in general, nor the public as a whole. www.suwanneedemocrat.comQUESTION OF THE WEEKVote online at www.suwanneedemocrat.com Poll Results(1-29-10)Should the Live Oak City Council renew its $2.4 million public works contract with OMI without seeking bids from other providers? Yes 16% No 84%Did President Obama do the right thing by scrapping plans for more manned moon flights? Note first, Mr. Stauffer, that our comments were directed at the Live Oak City Council, not OMI. OMI is a private company whose aim, presumably, is to generate revenue and maximize profit. The city council, on the other hand, has different obligations. As to the need for competitive bidding, your comment on comparing "apples to apples" sums it up nicely. Observing that OMI's fees are "equal to or less than cities of similar size and in neighboring jurisdictions" hardly proves we mightn't get a better deal elsewhere. Surely there are unique challenges to every municipality, some of which are "apples," others, "oranges." As for OMI's "proven track record of success," that is a factor to be considered when weighing competing offers Ñ not an argument against competitive bidding to begin with.The Democrat respondsTo the Editor: Your recent editorial, "Moment of Truth" (Jan. 28), regarding the City of Live Oak's public works contract with CH2M HILLcites "supposed concern for workers'rights" as the only rationale for the city not to open the contract to public bidding. While the welfare of our local employees and their future vesting is a very real and significant concern for both the company and the city, it is far from the only one. Any bid process incurs costs for advertising, staff time to review the bids, etc. Furthermore, unlike commodities or capital projects, it can be difficult to discern differences in professional services bids, to compare apples to apples. Moreover, if the city ultimately does change service providers, there are costs associated with any transition. Finally, and perhaps most important, CH2M HILLhas a proven track record of success in Live Oak since 1997, starting with management of the city's water and wastewater facilities then expanding eight years later to public works services that include solid waste collection and disposal; city vehicle repair; and maintenance of streets, the cemetery, and public spaces and grounds. This ongoing relationship earned the National Council for Public Private Partnerships'Partnership Award in the service category in 2005. City officials have acknowledged that there are no performance issues. Operating and contract costs are equal to or less than cities of similar size and in neighboring jurisdictions. CH2M HILLis confident our combination of experience, expertise and pricing compares favorably to any other vendor in the market. There are certainly valid reasons for going through a competitive bid process. However, there also are times when such a process simply results in an unnecessary cost to taxpayers and an unnecessary risk to employee morale. Sincerely, Brent W. Stauffer CH2MHILL OMIFROM OUR READERS SEERANT & RAVE,PAGE13A

Suwannee County Sheriff and Emergency management Director Tony Cameron said Wednesday that area waterways, particularly the Santa Fe River at Three Rivers Estates, aren't likely to rise more than a foot, as forecasters predict the possibility of more rain in the coming days. "I don't think it will do that much," Cameron said. "This weekend, it at all depends. They've only predicted about a half an inch to an inch or more, if any." Those who dwell in flood-prone areas are asked to remain vigilant and to stay safe. On Monday the water had risen to almost 19 feet, tipping over into flood stage. Meteorologists have predicted that the water level could continue to swell past 20 feet by Saturday if more rain falls. Road closures still remain for the south end of 39th Drive in Three Rivers, as well as the south end of River Run Road. The possibility for additional closures is contingent upon the amount of rainfall this weekend. By Joyce Marie Taylor Correspondent By her own admission, Louise Marzloff says that she is blessed with "the best of both worlds," and after listening to her recount her life and her accomplishments, one has to agree with her. With a new granddaughter on the way and one of her daughters in a ministry overseas, she has much to be proud of and thankful for. At this stage of her life, she was supposed to be acting like a retired person. She and her husband were supposed to be traveling the world and enjoying their retirement years, but Louise, who wasn't quite ready to throw in the towel, had a different agenda. Born and raised in Mayo, Louise grew up in a loving family on a tobacco and watermelon farm, which instilled values of home and hearth that have sustained her throughout her life. She met and married her husband, Andy, when the two of them were in their twenties working together at General Electric in the city of Alachua. Although Andy was born in Gainesville, his family relocated to Mayo when he was seventeen, where he graduated from Lafayette High School, and also where he met his wife, Louise. After five years at G.E., Louise was laid off and so it was time to re-think her career choices and try something different. She wound up opening an office supply/craft store in Mayo, but after two years she realized her heart wasn't quite into it. Something was gnawing at her. She knew she had a different mission in life and after a while it would become crystal clear what that mission was. Meanwhile, her sister-in-law had opened up the very first pre-school in Mayo and Louise worked side-by-side with her, until one day the suggestion was made that the city of Branford was in dire need of a pre-school, too. When the president of the bank told her husband, Andy, the same thing, the Marzloffs decided to go for it in 1986. This coming August Melissa Lamb of Branford, pictured here, was the winner of the local TOPS chapter's 6week challenge over the holidays. She received $25. Five members were in the running for this challenge. The object was to stay focused on weight loss over the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holidays.Courtesy photo The best of both worldsBranford truly is a 'perfect setting' for Louise MarzloffTOPS holiday challenge winner Louise, Andy & Avery.

Dr. Dean, a pastor/teacher at heart, has written several books and articles on the Christian faith and has traveled often as a missionary in foreign fields. He holds degrees from Westminster Theological and Hartford seminaries. He is also a member of the Evangelical Theological and Evangelical Philosophical Societies. "We are so pleased to welcome Dr. and Mrs. Dean as part of our staff," said Pastor Paul Bertolino. "We will begin on February 21 at 9:45 a.m. to team teach a course of study on membership/baptism using Dr. Dean's book, "Resurrection Hope." The course subjects will include: the Centrality of the Resurrection, Guess who's Coming Again (including biblical prophecy) and Death; Friend or Foe. "This great opportunity" stated the pastor, "will be open to folks in McAlpin and Suwannee County to audit free, without obligation or commitment to the church. Each class member will be given the book for their personal use." Further information can be obtained from the pastor at 386658-1048.

That is quite a change! 2) What Jesus Can Do With Us: One time a preacher was asked if he really believed Jesus turned water into wine. "Of course I do," replied the preacher. "I've seen Him turn a drunkard into a saint." Paul reminded us in II Cor. 3:18 "But we all, with unveiled face, behold as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord." 3) During Paul's Day: Corinth was a city filled with all kinds of immorality. There were thieves, drunkards, revilers, robbers and idolaters. But some of these were changed by Christ, Paul said they were washed, sanctified, justified by the power of Jesus Christ [I Cor. 6:9-11]. Then in Paul's second letter to Corinth he said, "If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things are new."

As if that wasn't enough, Louise still had a hankering to do more. She had a dream that needed to be fulfilled. With a family of great cooks to rely upon, as well as her own savvy business sense, "APerfect Setting" was born. She and her family transformed the old Branford Tabernacle into a beautiful meeting hall for catering parties. Andy is no slacker, either. Aside from being part owner in both businesses with his wife, he has his own stump-grinding business and is part owner in a nursery. Between the two of them they stay quite busy. So, now, being "semiretired," with their daughter Andrea taking over at the pre-school, Louise and her husband get to babysit their granddaughter, Avery, full time, while awaiting the birth of yet another granddaughter, who shall be named Anna. The rest of their time is spent tending to business at "A Perfect Setting," which works out well, since most of the events they cater are done on nights and weekends. Is it the best of both worlds? According to Louise and Andy, it certainly is.The best of both worldsContinued From Page 7A Daughter Andrea, Louise Marzloff and daughter Krista.

Zac, a hemophiliac, has pledged to raise $500 toward hemophilia research aiming to "help find a cure" for the illness that has plagued him his entire life, he said. In hemophiliacs, blood doesn't clot properly, meaning even a small cut or minor injury can prove serious. Becky, inspired by her brother's plight and seeking to make a difference on her own, has vowed to rally everyone she can to donate a total of 500 pints of blood to help her brother and others with blood disorders. The siblings began each of their service projects at the start of the new year, hoping to meet their goals by the time of their B'nai Mitzvah Ñ the traditional Jewish coming of age ceremony. For Jewish boys like Zac, 13 is the age at which one becomes a man by vowing to observe the commandments and helping lead religious services, as outlined on the Web site www.jewfaq.org. In addition, he may now be counted in a minyan (the minimum number of people needed to perform certain elements of religious services), form binding contracts, testify before religious courts and marry, confirmed Rabbi Moshe M. Elbaz, of Temple Israel in Valdosta where the Messchers attend services. It's the celebrant's first aliyah, or public recital of the Five Books of Moses, from the Torah. "During Shabbat services on a Saturday shortly after the child's 13th birthday, or even the Monday or Thursday weekday services immediately after the child's 13th birthday, the celebrant is called up to the Torah to recite a blessing over the weekly reading," according to the Web site, and is often required to learn the entire haftarah, a selection from the prophets, Elbaz said. For Jewish girls, age 12 marks that transition. In Orthodox and Hasidic practice, women are not permitted to participate in religious services in this fashion, so a Bat Mitzvah (a "daughter of the commandments" ceremony), if celebrated at all, is usually little more than a party. However, in other forms of Judaism, the girls do exactly the same thing as the boys, Elbaz noted. "Boys and girls learn religious school training from age 8, five years prior to their Bar Mitzvah, and study the Hebrew language a year prior to their ceremony," he said. Both Zac and Becky have been working hard to learn the Hebrew text each will recite. "I'm ready," said Zac, smiling, "but I'm not sure about Becky." "I'm not as good at speaking Hebrew as him," Becky conceded. Despite the challenges, both Zac and Becky have stayed focused on working to complete their projects. "They decided around Thanksgiving to conceive their projects," said the pair's mother, Janet Messcher. "They both wrote scripts and made videos, which they have posted on YouTube under mitzvotproject to get the word out," Janet Messcher said. Becky made posters, flyers and participation coupons, voiced a radio announcement on Power Country 102 several weeks ago, and has even made three trips to join workers on the local Life South blood mobile in Live Oak. She's now hoping to do the same in Valdosta. As of Tuesday, she had collected over 150 pints toward her project Ñ 54 from kids at SMS alone. Zac, who has to take medication three time weekly by injection to control blood clotting and coagulation from broken blood vessels in his ankles, said his project is coming along well, but "could use a few more donations." As of Wednesday, he had raised $353 toward the foundation Hemophilia of Georgia, which will help in part with research in Florida. "People can keep donating even after we reach $500 to help find a cure for hemophilia," Zac said. Janet Messcher said she is delighted by Zac and Becky's hard work and grateful to all who have helped. "I'm immensely proud and amazed at how much work they have accomplished," she said. "The amount of help and feedback we've gotten from friends, family and the community has been incredible." Continued From Page 1ABlood ties"It's the big issue, it's going to be my main focus," she said. Attracting businesses to the county will be the biggest step in creating more jobs here, she said. "That's why I'm very interested in this Catalyst site," Bennett said. "I think it could be a big boom to the county." The site she refers to is a 100-acre site west of Live Oak that, when constructed, would be a site that is infrastructure ready for new businesses to locate. "I think it's very, very important, just the fact that I have a 19-year-old son, I don't want him to have to move away to get a job. I want him to be able to raise kids here." She said what the county has to do next is put to rest the wet/dry issue. "This is not a dry county, we sell beer and wine here," said Bennett. "I am in favor of it (the county going wet). The revenue we're losing from not being wet is ridiculous." Other pledges: Bennett wants to be involved in the community "My pledge is to be totally accessible to everybody in my district," she said. "They will know all my phone numbers and where I live. If I can help someone or just find somebody that can help them I want to be able to. I want the people in my district to tell me what they feel." County departments "I want to be able to spend time going to all county departments, what can we as commissioners do to help," she said. "I want to find out what, if any, their concerns are. I want them to be totally comfortable talking with me." Communication "If I were elected I would make it a point to communicate with my fellow commissioners. I would want those in the public to come to the meetings and to not feel intimidated. I think that's a big thing. The communities need to be very aware of what's coming to them." Research "If I don't know something or understand it I will take the time to do research on the matter. I love to do research." Perimeter Road "I understand keeping big traffic from downtown, but at the same time I don't want the perimeter road to take away from downtown. I believe it's something we need though." Forty-four year old Bennett is originally from Massachusetts. She and her husband Daniel are owners of Bennett's Glass Company in Live Oak. They have a 19-year-old son, Harvey. She has experience in bookkeeping, payroll, accounting, contracts and management.Bennett announces bid for county commissionContinued From Page 1Acio would pick up the hollowed out truck batteries filled with cocaine from truck drivers. "You can fit between five and six kilograms of cocaine in a hollowed out truck battery," said Cole. Then Garcia or Lucio would take one or two of the batteries and immediately drive them to customers in Jacksonville or Orange Park. "They would then take the money received, less Garcia and Lucio's cut, and put the money in the truck battery and take it back to the truck drivers," said Cole. From there the truck drivers would take the money back to Mexico or Texas. Garcia and Lucio made this run periodically between at least 2007, according to court testimony, and Garcia's arrest in June 2009, a day after selling drugs to a confidential informant. Garcia pleaded guilty to distributing about 600 pounds of cocaine. Lucio will be sentenced on Feb. 25. Sheriff Tony Cameron said he's glad the drugs are off the streets. "No matter where they are going, I'm just glad it's been stopped," he said. "They were taking away from our families all over, it's a crime that ruins so many lives." Three others were also sentenced for their roles. Umar "Old Man" Hassan, 60, was sentenced to five years in prison and Kenneth "Big Boy" Johnson, 36, was sentenced to two years. Continued From Page 1Asaid. "The city clerk must effectively and efficiently meet all statutory obligations with respect to activities of the city." How would he keep you informed? "There's an avenue open between myself and the media and I would just broaden it," said Daniels. "I will do my best to get the agenda out for the meetings as soon as possible, even if that's just putting it online." Which brings him to the question of technology. "I would like to create a better, updated Web site for the city clerk," said Daniels. "We can publishDaniels will seek city clerk postContinued From Page 1A ordinances, zoning changes and other issues on the Web site." Daniels said he wants to make sure the people of the community know he will be there anytime a question needed answering. If he doesn't know the answer, he will find it, he said. "People who don't know me will find that I'm frankly honest in a political way," said Daniels. Daniels said voters should make a smart, informed decision on who to vote into city offices in May. "It's a very important election and the people will decide which way the city will go," said Daniels. The know-how "I will use my knowledge to assist you with issues of concern or interest." Daniels'experience is varied: Graduated with an associate of arts in business administration and a bachelor of science in business education, along with minors in accounting and economics, from Monmouth University in 1973. Elected township committeeman, Barnegat Twp., N.J. 1976. Current population 20,000-plus. Served as police commissioner and deputy mayor and oversaw building and code enforcement.

We have all heard the phrase "six degrees of separation" used to describe the connectivity we have to each other especially to the folks we do not know or have not met. Well, I have certainly found this to be true in the past, but since moving to Wellborn in 2004, it seems to be true to a greater extent. It's as if the world used to fit in my hand, but now it fits between two fingers. Another thing I love about living in Wellborn is how our neighbors are not just neighbors, but true friends. I have found that in Wellborn, past and present, folks just naturally work together and help each other. I am reminded of an example of these two concepts every day as I drive in and out of my driveway. As I come and go, I pass a large rusting machine a feat of agricultural engineering in its day and a testament to agriculture's ability to adapt and thrive. In 2005, I purchased the property between my house and CR 137 in order to prevent a certain type of development that I felt would not add to the value of our neighborhood. There were some older structures on the new property that were overgrown and unused. Soon after my purchase, we experienced several hurricanes passing through and one of the structures, an old storage barn gave up the ghost and fell in. When the barn finally succumbed to the years of neglect, wind and rain, it offered a clearer glimpse of its former use and what might be inside. We also lost some trees a few weeks later that shaded the barn and the combination of these calamities offered an uncovered glimpse into the assortment of antiques and oddities stored in the barn for all those years. As we explored the barn, we found it contained a large-wheeled frame supporting some type of combine with several work stations and a large frame platform for a part of the machine that was removed many years before, based on the rust and debris on top. About this same time later in the spring, one of my neighbors, Phillip Foster, who owns Sunsations Lawn and Landscape, was able to shed some light on the origin of the combine. Philip told me that the Owens family used to own or farm my property and that his grandfather, J. W. Foster, partnered with another neighbor to buy and use the combine. Together, they combined small grains, and he thinks even some grass seed perhaps. Of course time passed and we got busy with other things but as the wood from the frame and siding of the barn began to slowly be pulled off and stacked up and carried off "when no one was looking" by persons unknown, the combine saw more and more daylight and spent more time on my mind. When I finally cleaned out the area where the barn was, to save the last of the barn wood for myself, I moved the machine (with a lot of help from my neighbors) to my yard up near the house where it sits today on land it once combined. Bill Knotts, another fantastic neighbor who is married to Connie (Hogan) Knotts, gave me more information about the combine. His wife's father, Mont Hogan, was the other owner of the machine. Bill is sure it was purchased prior to 1961 as Mont Hogan went south to the Palm Beach area to farm in 1961. Bill also believes, as Philip Foster does, that the combine was used to combine a variety of crops all here in Wellborn. I can't help but think that the more things change the more they stay the same as Stanley Cribbs and his brother Rodney pull in with their cutters and balers to clean off the old Bahia so I can plant my oats. I have the land and grow the hay and they have the equipment so we "crop share" on the hay operation. While we don't own any equipment together, without either contribution, it just wouldn't work. Neighbors and friends still sharing equipment and farming in Wellborn, 70 years and counting!As we explored the barn, we found it contained a large-wheeled frame supporting some type of combine with several work stations and a large frame platform for a part of the machine that was removed many years before, based on the rust and debris on top.WELLBORN NEWSPart of the past comes to light in WellbornThis combine a feat of agricultural engineering in its day is a testament to agriculture's ability to adapt and thrive. Photos: Wendell Snowden University of Florida officials are nearly ready to launch a Live Oak-based academy aimed at helping novice small farmers as well as those who just want to improve the small farm they have. Ninety-three percent of Florida's 47,000 farms are classified by the federal government as "small." But those farms earn less than one-fifth of the state's agricultural receipts, said Nick Comerford, director of the North Florida Research and Education Center in Quincy. Around the country, there is a similar split between small and large farms, he said, but nationally, small farmers are faring better than Florida's small farmers. Helping change that was the impetus behind the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences'Small Farms Academy, said Comerford, the academy's interim director. Officials hope to officially launch the academy in April and to have a full curriculum by July 1. The academy will be initially based at the North Florida Research and Education Center's Suwannee Valley campus in Live Oak. "It will be a different kind of program ... very intensive and hands-on for a couple of days. We want them to have good materials they can take home and make part of their library and to just be ready to go home and do the work," he said. IFAS extension officials offered a hands-on short course in March 2009 on starting a hydroponic-farming business that was well received, he said. AndLive Oak is site for farming academyIFAS'inaugural smallfarms conference in August drew more than 800 people. After setting up an advisory board and launching a Web site at http://nfrec.ifas.ufl.edu/aca demy/index.shtml, Comerford said the group is soliciting input from UF faculty and interested parties about the academy and its curriculum. Those with ideas to share are asked to contact Small Farms Academy coordinator Randi Randall at 386362-1725 x106 or rrandall@ufl.edu.

Allowing for 40 hours of overtime a month that is 200 hours worked a month. 200 hours divided into $200,000 equals $1,000 an hour or $10,000 a day this allow for 2 hours OT every work day. This is the equivalent of paying 40 people a day $20 an hour to work taking out 20% for labor expense. These are your numbers Councilman Stewart lets see how you can Flip Flop them.My hats off and a big hey you! to the guy that called in and was complaining about the way they grade the roads. He hit the nail on the head, they sure need to do something about this. Thank ya'll, have a great day, and hopefully they will get it right.Thanks to the Suwannee Democrat for the article on the new biomass plant to be built in Hamilton County. We're not an expert in this field, but I have never read an article with more pros and cons for building such a plant. On the pro side, it is supposed to be clean, with little side effects, there is supposed to be adequate fuel to keep the plant running, the financial benefits will be good, and we will get rid of trash wood left over after the forest is removed. On the con side, it is reported to be dirty, and according to experts, there isn't enough forest waste within a 50mile radius to supply this plant and some think this will remove nutrients needed to regrow the forests. They are talking about building these plants from Gainesville to Georgia. I sure hope the Department of Environmental Protection knows what it is doing. Bye.On January 25th, the Cook Political Report showed our Congressional District, with our Representative, Allen Boyd, to be "likely" to remain a Democrat seat, and therefore vote, after the 2010 elections in November. By this, they mean that "[t]hese seats are not considered competitive at this point but have the potential to become engaged." This is the case even though they also show that our district, FL-02, voted for the 2004 and 2008 Republican presidential tickets 6 percentage points more than was the average for the whole country. Allen Boyd's votes in Congress support the Democrat position 95% of the time, according to www.opencongress.org, such as the Ôporkulus'stimulus bill and cap-and-tax bill, for which he voted, and against the Stupak pro-life amendment to the health care bill. Mark Greenbaum of Roll Call newspaper said on January 25th (http://www.rollcall.com/news/42 578-1.html) that Rep. Boyd "can politically afford to vote yes" on the health care bill, even if we, his constituents, are against it. Let's help our Congressional seat "become engaged!" Investigate what Allen Boyd really supports.I must agree with Mr. Hill. Why aren't the agendas for the City Council meetings published in advance for citizens to review? Isn't this the responsibility of the City Clerk?Hello, and thank you for the Rant & Rave. This is for the person who is talking about someone new running for the mayor, in hopes that the new mayor doesn't have to drive the city's SUVto Tallahassee for ethic hearings. Well, I will assure you that the city appreciates you offering your personal vehicle, filled with the gas to attend out of county ethic hearings. I am here to assure you that since you have so much concern for the city's budget you would not be driving a company vehicle out of town or a county meeting. I am here to fill you in that you can rest assured that the new mayor will be driving the city's vehicle just as any other mayor has or will. Be sure that you pay close attention and takes notes to the new mayor's decision in not driving the city's SUV, and it sits in the parking lot just looking pretty. Maybe you need to run for mayor so you can drive your personal vehicle, instead of a company vehicle to attend out of county meetings. Thank you.Mr. Hill, this message is to Mr. Hill. Mr. Hill, I read your message in the newspaper. You need to look at drainage in the areas that flood and make homeowners have to purchase flood insurance. Mr. Hill I am going to try to help you NOT get elected. Also, I live in a flood zone and my house has never flooded and if it does flood, that would be for me to repair, and not for you to make me do something as to buy flood insurance. I will help you not to get elected in Suwannee County.

"I believe my greatest contribution to the education of my students has been to set high expectations for my students and to inspire them to achieve those goals. I have found that children give what you expect them to give at any grade level."NANNETTE "SAM" BUNCEBranford High School Eighth grade language arts/ninth grade English Bunce began her career as a second grade teacher in 1972 at Lealman Elementary in St. Petersburg. She holds a bachelor's degree in education from the University of South Florida. "It is my hope that my greatest contribution to my students is teaching them something Ôbeautiful'everyday. Each day in my classroom I endeavor to teach a word, a phrase, or perhaps study a literary work with that embodies a universal truth that my students may apply to themselves. My desire is that I will encourage my students to continue to pass on these Ôbeautiful' thoughts and truths to someone else, thus continuing the cycle so important in the communication process. Shared knowledge endures."LAURA KATHERINE ROBERTSSuwannee Elementary School Second and third grade gifted Roberts began her career as a second grade teacher in 2005. She holds a bachelor of science degree in early childhood education from Valdosta State University and a master's in education in emotional disturbances/learning disabilities from Florida State University. "My greatest contribution to the education of my students is the strong, cooperative classroom climate that I try to build every year. From the first day of school to the last, I try very hard to develop a cohesive classroom structure where the students feel comfortable and valued, almost like our own Ôschool family.'One of my favorite teachers/authors, Rafe Esquth, has two rules in his classroom: be nice and work hard. I use these two rules well. Kindness and hard work are the foundations of our classroom. My students must always try to do their best, and above all, they must be nice to one another! We try to end our day each day with a compliment circle, where students practice saying kind words to one another. They have to know they can trust me and that they can trust their classmates. Social and emotional needs are often neglected in our schools today, but I feel that they must be addressed before academic needs can even be considered. I know that if my students feel happy, enthusiastic and comfortable, they are more likely to be successful with academic endeavors."THEDA SEVERANCE Suwannee Intermediate School Fourth grade Severance began her career as an art teacher and site coordinator for the 21st Century After School Program in 2001. She holds a bachelor's of science degree in education grades 1-6. "I always have a positive attitude and I stress the importance of education to my students. I also take on the role as their Ôsecond mom'and teach them that honesty is the best policy. For example, I tell my students that if they have always been honest with me, I will believe them if they are telling me about a big purple monster in the hallway."Teacher of the Year to be announced Tuesday LINDA KELLERBranford Elementary School Kindergarten Keller began her career as a second grade teacher in 1978. She holds a bachelor of arts in education. "I believe that the greatest contribution I make is making children aware that they don't need to settle for second best. My children know that I expect them to be Ôgogetters', not just Ôsatisfied customers!' When goals are set high, more is achieved by the students, even if the goals are not met!"MELISSA CAMERONSuwannee Middle School Seventh and eighth grade art Cameron began her career in 1995 as a fourth grade teacher at Suwannee East Elementary. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in liberal arts and sciences from the University of Florida. "I want my students to feel loved and confident, so that they can perform well in their daily lives. Unfortunately, many students begin my art class with a closed and stubborn mind of fearful attitude. Many of them think they cannot be successful in an area in which they have not excelled in the past. I strive to open my students'minds, help them break old habits and barriers, and show them that they can soar to new heights that they never dreamed possible. I emphasize that when trying to master any skill. Hard work, determination, practice, and perseverance guarantees success! The greatest contribution I make to the education of my students is when I see these habits and traits evident in my classroom Ñ but more importantly Ñ overflowing into other aspects of their lives." CANDY VICKERSSuwannee High School Exceptional Student Education grades 9-12 Vickers began teaching varying exceptionalities kindergarten through 5th grade in 1979. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in special education. "I believe my greatest contribution is believing and showing not only my students but their families, friends, peers and community that our students are capable of overcoming many obstacles that people do not believe they can do. People feel that because they are mentally handicapped they are not capable of being independent or responsible, much less hold down a job. If the students are shown and expected to behave responsibly, they will. It may take the students longer to learn a skill or they may need to learn it in a different style than others, along with a lot of extra work and patience, but they are capable of learning. If people would just look beyond their handicaps they would see and know some beautiful individuals."MELISSA MAPPFRANCISCOSuwannee-Hamilton Technical Center Medical Clinical Programs and Office Technology Mapp-Francisco began her career in 1994 as a 9th through 12th grade biology teacher and 11th and 12th grade anatomy and physiology instructor. She earned her Bachelor of Health degree in community education from Florida State University. She states that her greatest contribution to the education of her students is: "recognizing that each student learns differently and possesses unique talents; teaching to accommodate different learning styles and levels of abilities; incorporating state standards into curriculum; providing education relevant to today's job skills/job market, ensuring more productive citizens; supplying Suwannee County's students with skills and abilities using today's latest technology; forming lasting pen relationships with our business community to better anticipate skills required for successful employment; enabling students to have a comprehensive idea of what will be expected in the "real world" using my Workforce Development background; passing on practical knowledge that my students will need in the ever evolving workforce; and proving to my students that education is the key to success."

When the other containers are full, the county tries to sell the recyclables. "There's a very limited market for it. If there is a market for it we will take it and sell it," said Sikes. If not, "it goes to the landfill." The igloos at some county refuse sites are labeled "aluminum cans," "clear glass," "newspapers" and "plastic." Hoffett said he and his fellow students were discouraged. "We are trying to accomplish something," he said. "But the county is just turning that around and filling up landfills with all of these recyclables we've collected that could be used again and not waste other materials." Hendry said club members are circulating a petition at school to convince the county to commence a more comprehensive recycling program. She said the petition will be presented to county commissioners at a future meeting.Continued From Page 1A (Contact Hillary Cannon, 386-647-4617, for tickets, cost of which is $25.)

Edmund Nelson lists his birthplace as Live Oak, Florida. Nelson was born here in April of 1960. His two older brothers went on to careers, one coaching in Tampa for 35 years and another retiring as a Major out of the U.S. military. Edmund's career was one that went unnoticed in his birthplace. Nelson moved from Live Oak as a youngster, his dad was career military. It was our loss as Edmund not only played in Hillsborough County, he starred there. He won Tampa's Guy Toph award given to the area's outstanding high school football player. He was given a scholarship to Auburn where he excelled and won the Cliff Hare award as their outstanding player. He was also named MVPin the 1982 Blue-Gray game.

The game was fastpaced from the beginning, resulting in an uncharacteristic 24 turnovers from the Suwannee offense. The majority of the turnovers were from passing (17) or dribbling (3) errors, as Perry's defense was tenacious and quick to intercept, steal, strip and recover the ball. Perry had an exceptional shooting night from the field which made their offense efficient, and gained a large number of layup points by breaking an ineffective Suwannee full court press. The referee whistles remained very quiet as Suwannee shot very few free throws. Suwannee only went to the line three times in the second half, late in the fourth quarter off several inside drives by Jimmie Taylor . Finally, the consistent weak point of the team this season has been unfouled missed layups, 14 in this game. This finally caught up to Suwannee who have led by such large margins in most games this season that it hasn't impacted the final outcome. Perry led the game from the jump, ahead 34-31 at the half and 51-39 by the end of the third, even though the score had pulled to within one point. However, Suwannee showed a spark of life in the fourth and pulled to 62-57 with 57 seconds left on the clock. Taylor brought his game inside the paint to shoot and draw free throws as Marcus Lane hit a three-point shot with 20 seconds left, but Perry had pulled ahead on free throws as the Bulldogs lost by seven. Scoring for the ÔDogs was led by Taylor with 25 points. He also had 10 rebounds and one assist. Guard Lane shot 54 percent from the field to add 18 points and had a notable rebounding night with six. He also added one assist. Tony Frierson had seven points, seven rebounds, and two assists. ÔDogs lose dogfightfive points, two steals and two assists. Guard Dontavius Hampton had a strong offensive night, leading the bench with 14 points while shooting 86 percent from the field, many off fast breaks and transition shots. Other scorers were Jarvis George (6), Austin Miller (9), Austin Collins (4) and Alex Robinson (1). ÔDogs take Ft. White 68-34 On Jan. 29, the guys defeated Ft. White in their last home game of the season 68-34. Suwannee led the game from the start, but turned up the heat in the third quarter with an aggressive full-court press. Scoring was led by Marcus Lane , who had 17 points in the first half and finished the night with 20, one steal, six rebounds and one assist. Jimmie Taylor had a strong defensive night with nine rebounds, five steals, three assists and 13 points.

The Raiders came out on fire with quick offense, three point shots and a good defense to open with a 9-2 lead. However, Suwannee gained their composure to bring the score up to 15-13 by the end of the first. By the half the score was 26-20 in favor of Suwannee. Determination, defense and steals from AJ Robinson and a notable game by Jarvis George pulled the ÔDogs up to 44-29 by the end of the third.

Our family serving yours since 1948.• Sincere Compassion • Personal Service • A name you can trust570033-F Feeling like a complete failure, a beautiful young mom responded to a parenting class I was teaching with tears. After hearing her story, I related to those feelings, without a doubt, being a parent is hands-down the hardest job on the planet! With two grown sons and a teenage daughter under our belt, you would think my husband and I would feel some confidence in knowing what we are doing. But, many days we don't! In fact, it is surprising to learn how many parents feel inadequate and even helpless in raising their children. Most Dads and Moms admit to losing sleep over the impact their failures and past mistakes will have on their children's future. During these times we need to remind ourselves that as parents, we can't change the past, the future is yet unwritten, and that God's purposes for our children's lives can outweigh our mistakes. Authors Dennis and Barbara Rainey tell the story of "Wrong Way Riegels", a football player for the University of California in the 1929 Rose Bowl. Seems that Riegels made one of the most famous mistakes in the history of football when he picked up a fumble and ran for more than 60 yards in the wrong direction! He was finally tackled by his own teammate just inside the 10-yard line. At halftime, his coach gave a rousing pep talk to the discouraged team and declared, "Same team that started the first half, will start the second half." This meant Riegels would be starting. The other players headed for the field without him as he explained, "Coach, I cannot go out there, I'm humiliated." The coach looked Riegels in the face and said, "This game is only half over, now get out there and play the rest of it." Those words are worth remembering today for us parents. Maybe you have a preteen or teenager and think, "This game is almost over-in just a few years they will be gone." Or your oldest may be 21 or even 29, and you look back to recount and regret your mistakes, deciding the game is over. Hear the words of Galatians 6:9: "Let us not grow weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Do you feel like a failure as a parent? Accepting responsibility for the mistakes we have made is a great way to ensure the future looks different than the past, and never underestimate the power of a simple, heartfelt apology. (I have said, "I'm sorry" to my three more times than I can count!) Sometimes we may need to accept our older children's choices as their own and realize they have different dreams for their life than we do. As our children grow up, our control grows less, but our influence can remain if we keep the lines of communication open. Ask God to encourage you not to grow weary in doing good as a parent, your children need you. Because Every Heart Matters. Angie Heart Matters is a weekly column written by Angie Land, Director of the Family Life Ministries of the Lafayette Baptist Association, where she teaches Bible studies, leads marriage and family conferences and offers Biblical counseling to individuals, couples and families. Contact Angie with questions or comments at angieland3@windstream.net. David H. Matier Doctor of Pastoral Counseling dmatier@windstream.net Einstein's Theory of Relativity was a theory of science, having to do with the speed of light in a vacuum, mathematical forms of physics, mass and energy, etc. He never meant for the term relative to be applied to ethics and yet in our day we have a whole generation of people, including Christian people, who claim to go by the teachings of the Bible claiming, "Everything is relative; nothing is black, or white." The word abomination is seldom heard in our modern world of relativism where everything is considered relative. But the Bible tells us that there are practices that are definitely wrong and the choice is not left up to you; God has already ruled on it in His Word, you just need to listen: God's Word tells us that women are not to dress to look like men and men are not to dress to look like women. "The woman shall not wear that which pertains unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God." A woman doesn't have to wear a skirt all the time but God said it is wrong for her to dress to purposely look like a man and it is wrong for a man to be a cross dresser! No relativity here. Human sacrifice is forbidden! "There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire ... " (Deuteronomy 18:10). In other words you are not to use your children as human sacrifices to God or any other god. God says, "Don't do it!" God's Word says it is an abomination to use tarot cards, the Ouija board, seek advice from spiritualist, witches, etc. " ... or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are and abomination unto the Lord:" (Deuteronomy 18:10-12). God did not leave any room for relativism. He didn't leave you guessing! THERE IS ARIGHTAND A WRONG! "And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbor's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death," (Leviticus 20:10). "Adultery, a sin that you laugh at when it is so freely talked about on the sitcoms and yet God's Word said it was worthy of death. Why? Because the relationship of a man and his wife is a picture of the relationship of Christ and the church "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word ... For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery; but I speak concerning Christ and the church," (Ephesians 5:25, 26, 31, 32). Jesus took it a step further saying, "Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart," (Matthew 5:27, 28). And we can see from the Bible that the practices of gays and lesbians is no relative matter either. "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind; it is an abomination," (Leviticus 18:22). God's Word condemns these practices and so many more. But so many say you can't tell others they can't do such-andsuch because he/she must make his/her own choice. Yes, but you, as a Christian and a student of the Word of God have an obligation to set forth the TRUTH. Jesus said, "Sanctify them through thy truth: THYWORD IS TRUTH," (John 17:17). Everyone reading this message knows people involved in sin. Don't be afraid to confront your loved ones when the opportunity arises because it is wrong, but you must do it in LOVE. Check your motive for confronting them. David H. Matier, DPC Heart MattersBy Angie LandRELIGION Is everything relative?The hardest job on the planet John H.
