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.

POPULATION ON THE RISE




Boom times back in Suwannee?


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
Suwannee County's popula-
tion is on the rise again, accord-
ing to a recent University of
Florida study. A gain of 2,870
residents is projected for the pe-


riod April 2009 to April 2010.
The state's population is on
the way up as well, with about
23,000 new residents expected
to flock to the Sunshine State.
It's a reversal in both cases
from last year, when Suwannee's
population fell for the first time


since 1972 and Florida's num-
bers dropped for the first time
since World War II.
The UF Bureau of Economic
and Business Research Depart-
ment conducted the study, which
shows estimated growth be-
tween April 2009 and April


2010. The bureau's director not-
ed the housing market is starting
to pick up in a number of places
around the state, which could ex-
plain the increase.
"Based on changes in electric
customer data, we believe Flori-
da's population has increased


slightly over the past year," said
Stan Smith. "This may be an in-
dication the state's economy is
no longer declining at the rate it
had been before."

She was arrested
on a charge of DUI
and reckless driving
both resulting in se-
Chrysten rious bodily injury.
Allyson Hudson Court documents
suggested she was
under the influence of alcohol and/or
marijuana at the time of the accident.
Hudson was headed east on 296th
Street around 6 p.m. June 10 when the
2006 Mercury she was driving left the
roadway and struck a tree, according to
the Florida Highway Patrol.
Wednesday, the DUI charge was
amended and Hudson was formally
sentenced on three counts of reckless
driving resulting in serious bodily in-
jury. In addition, she must serve 10
years' probation, complete the Mist
substance abuse program, write a for-

Coalition hosts conference on drug, alcohol abuse


Carla Blalock addresses a crowd of more than 140 people at the Uniting
for Youth Prevention Conference.


See related story, Page 12A.
The Suwannee Drug Free Coalition hosted a conference
recently for local community leaders and those who work
with youth. The conference, held at Cerveny Conference
Center, focused on uniting local organizations, agencies
and businesses in prevention efforts to help young people.
Workshops featured presenters who are experts in
various prevention fields. Topics included: Preventing
Prescription Drug Abuse, Keeping the Legal Drinking
Age 21, Using the Arts in Prevention Efforts, Grant
writing, Finding and Using Data and a host of other issues
which benefited those working to help youth. The keynote
speaker for the event was Dr. Victor DeNoble who spoke
on the topic "Science of Addiction: It's All in Your
Brain."
Each year, substance abuse costs millions of dollars for
treatment, law enforcement and health care. The
Suwannee Coalition supports increased spending to
prevent negative behaviors before they become a
problem.
Co-sponsors for the conference are Florida Mothers
Against Drunk Driving, Tobacco Free Suwannee and
Suwannee County Schools.

I would like to thank each and everyone who

this benefit. I would also like to thank Jack Byrd, Ja-

Treatment for Strep Throat Infections
Strep throat is an infection of the throat that is caused by the bacteria
Streptococcus pyogenes. Signs and symptoms include difficulty
swallowing, swollen glands, headache, fever, and stomachache. The
condition is contagious, and can be transmitted through coughing or
sneezing. If not treated, the condition may lead to other conditions, such
as an ear infection, sinus infection, or tonsillitis. Although many sore
throats are caused by viruses and cannot be treated with antibiotics, a
diagnosis of bacterial strep throat should be treated with antibiotics.
Oral antibiotics are usually prescribed by a doctor after a diagnosis of
strep throat has been made. Penicillin, amoxicillin (Amoxil, Trimox),
azithromycin (Zithromax) or clarithromycin (Biaxin) may be prescribed.
Cephalexin i. is a cephalosporin type antibiotic that also may be
prescribed. Pain relieving medications may also be used, including
ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) or acetaminophen (Tylenol) for pain in the
throat and fever reduction. A saline nasal spray (Ocean Spray) also may
be used to help moisturize nasal passages. Adequate rest and hydration
are other non-medication therapies recommended for relief of
symptoms. A humidifier also may be useful for relief of cough and nasal
congestion.

THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLER


Sleep is a


funny thing

By Jim Holmes
I saw a mom in the grocery store the other day
with a little one maybe a year old and he was
literally passed out, his head resting on the shop-
ping cart handle as she browsed the aisles, coupons
in hand. He was totally oblivious to all the noise
and activity around him.
How I envied his ability to slumber in such cir-
cumstances. I'm sure I did the same when I was
that age, but those days are long gone.
Ironically, when I was that tyke's age, I fought
tooth and nail against nodding off. And I'm sure the
little boy in the grocery cart had done the same. Af-
ter all, when you are a child, you just know the mo-
ment you close your eyes, you are going to miss
something really exciting in this brand new world
that you occupy.
I suspect every little kid fights going to sleep ...
at least 364 days a year. "Mama, please let me stay
up one more hour," must be a universal plea heard
around the globe.
The one possible exception to that norm might
be Christmas Eve when, at least in my case, it was
easy to get me to go to bed. That's because the
folks warned Santa wouldn't come until I had
sacked out. Of course, just because I crawled into
bed without protesting didn't mean I'd quickly nod
off. In fact, I'd lie there in the darkness holding my
breath, hoping I'd hear Saint Nick's sleigh and
reindeer land on the roof. I wasn't sure what that
might sound like, but I figured I'd know it when I
heard it! Several Christmas mornings I'd ask to go
up on the roof to look for tracks. Somehow that
never happened.
Later, when I started losing my baby teeth, I re-
member being a little frightened of going to sleep.
I wasn't sure I wanted the Good Fairy crawling
around under my pillow looking for a tooth, even if
she was going to leave me a dime. In fact, back
then I often slept with my head under the pillow,
and worried if she came while I was in that posi-
tion, would she believe I was offering up ALL my
teeth for the taking. Admittedly, I was a strange
child.
By the time you are a teenager, you are certainly
willing to sleep, but only between the hours of 3
a.m. and 3 p.m. Parents like to think it is because
teens are trying to avoid mowing the yard, cleaning
the house or washing the car. That's only partially
true. The primary reason is just to avoid them!
That's because when you are a teen, you are con-
vinced you must have been adopted. There's sim-
ply no way a "cool dude" like you could be the off-
spring of such nagging losers.
As a working adult, I never seemed to get
enough sleep. Most often, it was some problem re-
lating to the job I'd be mulling over at 3 a.m. I
wouldn't have minded as much, if the boss had
paid a "worrying bonus" at the end of each year. I
broached the idea once. He just looked at me fun-
ny.
Now that I am retired, I don't need anywhere
near the amount of sleep I would like to have had
when working. In fact, I am almost always up
every couple of hours or so. A preacher once told
me it was God's miraculous way of telling me my
time on this planet was limited, so make better use
of what I had left. Far be it from me to question
God's actions. I just wish He had found a way of
limiting my sleep without involving my prostate!
Jim Holmes lives in Live Oak.


BIBLE VERSE
He had a dream in which he saw a
stairway resting on the earth, with
its top reaching to heaven, and the
angels of God were ascending and
descending on it.

I was the only
one at the breakfast
club that morning
who was wearing a
tie. And after being .
informed and ,pi
slightly chastised
by the group that
our meetings were Dwain Walden
informal, the dis-
cussion led to neck-
ties with a consensus that they are
non-functional except to keep gravy
off your shirt.
I had never been in a real deep dis-
cussion about neckties before but it
seemed a viable subject, given the
option was why we diagrammed sen-
tences.
I did point out that while I thought
a necktie was mostly ornamental, one
could be used as a tourniquet. So if
you got bitten by a rattlesnake on the
way to church, there was a certain de-
gree of functionality.
On the other hand, a clip-on bow
tie couldn't even be used for a tourni-
quet. Nor would a bow tie stop much
gravy from getting on your shirt.
I've noticed that some men have
trouble getting the necktie tied to the
right length. Often they are too short.
The rule of thumb is that the tip of the


tie should go just below the belt
buckle. But that all depends on where
the belt buckle is.
For instance the other day on tele-
vision's "Dr. Oz," a rather obese fel-
low was asked what his waist size
was. He said 38. Dr. Oz grinned and
told him that his waist was not down
there where his pants were fastened.
As it turned out, his waist was a 48.
Wearing a tie is probably due to
that syndrome whereby we do things
because other people before us did
the same things without being ques-
tioned.
Now I guess it's not really a syn-
drome, but I pointed out that we were
all eating eggs, grits, toast, waffles
etc. for breakfast because a long time
ago someone got up one morning and
decided that was the definition of
breakfast.
So what if we got up one morning
and decided to have spaghetti,
lasagna or country fried steak. And I
told them the story of the time when I
had butterbeans, cornbread and fried
chicken for breakfast. Of course we
had just unloaded a barn of tobacco
and the man's wife who was to pre-
pare breakfast for us had an emer-
gency to attend to and thus we had to
improvise with leftovers from the


previous night's supper. It worked
out pretty darn well.
I haven't had a breakfast like that
since that morning, but I also haven't
unloaded a barn of tobacco in many,
many years.
Back to neckties. I do believe
there's a factory somewhere that spe-
cializes in making ugly neckties. Al-
most every men's department will
have a rack of ugly ties that have
been separated from the pretty ones.
You would think that someone would
make notes and report back to the
factory that these things are ugly, so
don't do it anymore. It's like they had
lots of dye leftover from the Easter
egg coloring contest and rather than
disposing of it as hazardous waste,
they painted neckties. And in keeping
with the Easter custom, they should
have hidden those ties along with the
eggs.
So in the mode of treating a syn-
drome, today I didn't wear a tie to the
breakfast club, and sometime today I
vow to end a sentence with a prepo-
sition. Wow! I don't know where that
one came from.

selves against this threat. I
sincerely hope we all pay
attention to everything
that is going on in this
country and make our
voices heard! There really
is plenty we can do!
And please, make it
your business to read
about all the local elec-


Co.
tions coming up, learn
about the candidates, and
make sure you get out and
vote. There is no sense in
complaining about the
leadership in our local
governments if you don't
take part in the privilege
of voting and vote the best
person in. There are
many seats up for election
this year, and you can
make a difference.
On a personal note, my
best wishes to Randy
Hatch in his bid for state
Commissioner of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Ser-
vices. I have had the priv-
ilege of speaking with
Randy in the past on other
issues, and wish him the
very best.
There will be a 'cake
and ice cream' time of fel-
lowship following the
Sunday evening worship
service at O'Brien Baptist
Church this coming Sun-
day, March 13. Come join
us for a 'sweet time' of fel-
lowship. Evening service
is at 6:00pm.
And don't forget, this
coming Sunday marks
Daylight Saving Time.
Don't know what others
think, but I wish "they"
would just leave the time


alone! There are still a
couple of places in this
country that do not ob-
serve this change, and
they seem to get along
just fine, thank you!
However, don't forget to
"spring forward", or you'll
find yourself arriving at
church next Sunday a lit-
tle bit late!
From Life's Little In-
struction Book:
"Life will sometimes
hand you a magical mo-
ment. Savor it!"
"Make a habit of read-
ing something inspiring
and cheerful just before
going to sleep."
"Open your arms to
change, but don't let go or
your values."
"Pay as much attention
to the things that are
working positively in your
life as you do to those that
are giving you trouble."
"Be an original! If that
means being a little eccen-
tric, so be it."
"When a good man or
woman runs for political
office, support him or her
with your time and mon-
ey."
Warm days are a-com-
ing! Take the time to en-
joy them! God bless!

Man charged in beating


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com


A Lake City man was arrested
Thursday for repeatedly slamming
his girlfriend's head against a wall
and for aiming a loaded gun at her
face, sheriff's reports show.
Anthony Richard Avallone Jr., 29,
of 228 Aspen Street, Lake City, was
arrested Thursday by Suwannee
County Sheriff's Deputy Arthur Lee
Robinson and charged with felony
battery.
According to a probable cause af-
fidavit by Robinson, on Jan. 5
around 12:49 a.m. Avallone became


"very angry and started shoving (his
girlfriend) around the home" they
shared in McAlpin.
Avallone reportedly became angry
after finding medication hidden in
his girlfriend's van.
The girlfriend reported that Aval-
lone "grabbed her by her throat,
causing some abrasions and bruises
... then grabbed her by her hair and
began slamming her head up against
the wall, causing a large bump to
come on the front side of her fore-
head."
Avallone then allegedly located a
loaded, long barrel revolver, pointed
it at her face and "told her that he


gun threat
wanted her dead."
Avallone reportedly
threw her "to the bed M a L
very hard causing .
small bruises," after
she begged him to
stop. Anthony
Avallone was not at Richard
the residence when Avallone
Robinson arrived. Jr
Robinson later con-
tacted him by phone
and asked him to turn himself in, but
Avallone reportedly hung up on him.
An arrest warrant was then filed.
The girlfriend was treated at
Shands Live Oak for her injuries.

Cheryl Mae Brinson, Di-
rector of Curriculum and
Instruction.
As part of the next
phase, representatives
from the Florida Depart-
ment of Education will ex-
plain Florida's application
to federal officers and take
part in an interview session
scheduled the week of
March 15.
The presentations will be
videotaped and posted on-
line for viewing after the
winners are announced, but
that's not the end of the
process. At the conclusion
of the finalist presentations,
the reviewers will meet
again to discuss each appli-
cation, finalize scores and
comments, and submit
them to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Education for a fi-
nal decision on the distrib-
ution of funds.


Fifty percent of a state's
total award will be dis-
bursed to participating
school districts according
to a federal funding formu-
la (similarly used for Title
I), and the remaining 50
percent will fund state-lev-
el projects designed to ben-
efit all school districts
statewide.
Officials from the Flori-
da Department of Educa-
tion press office were un-
able to say how many states
are expected to receive
grant funding. A represen-
tative from that office, who
declined to give her name,
said that the final decision
for the numbers of winners
will be made by the United
States Department of Edu-
cation in Washington.
Winners of the competi-
tion are expected to be an-
nounced in early April.

jected a loss of 58,000 resi-
dents, with Suwannee losing
about 1.7 percent of its pop-
ulation. That was the first
time Suwannee has experi-
enced a population decrease
since the university began
gathering such data in 1972.
Smith said the recession and
the housing bust were the
main factors for the de-
crease.
Suwannee's projected
population as of April 2010
is 43,100, compared with
40,230 in April 2009, a 7
percent jump.
"It appears the state's
population loss was a one-

Smith. "Even so, Florida's
growth will be very slow
during the early years of the

Smith said it will take an-
other four or five years for
Florida to return to its nor-

Daniel Lee Armstrong, 27, of Live Oak, was acquit-
ted Friday on charges involving the sale of cocaine
within 1,000 feet of a place of worship and possession
with intent to sell. Armstrong was also acquitted on a
charge of sale of a substance in lieu of a controlled
substance.
Jurors were shown surveillance footage that prose-
cutors said linked Armstrong to the crime.
"Based on the video, they clearly had the wrong
guy," said Justin Blow, public defender for Armstrong.
After hearing testimony from three law enforcement
officers, one confidential informant and a drug lab an-
alyst, jurors agreed that it was not Armstrong who
committed the crimes.
The Friday trial ran all day, but it only took jurors 25
minutes to return with their not guilty verdict on all
three counts.

Man threatens wife's rescuers with pistol

stood over his wife and pointed a 9
mm pistol at her and the neighbor.
"Defendant stated to neighbor and
wife he would kill both of them and
anyone who tried to take away him or
his wife while pointing the gun at
them," Allen reported.
When emergency workers arrived,


Bass reportedly put the pistol in a
holster wrapped around his neck and
under his left arm. Allen reported that
Bass "told a paramedic/firefighter
that he would shoot him and anyone
else there. I arrived and ordered the
defendant to lay the weapon down
and he refused. Defendant told me
two times that he would shoot me."
Allen said he had to grab Bass's


right hand and push the pistol away
from him several times before he was
finally able to handcuff him.
Bass was arrested and charged
with aggravated assault (domestic
violence), aggravated assault, as-
sault on a law enforcement officer
and EMT official, assault on a per-
son over the age of 65 and false im-
prisonment.


impact on Florida's popula-
tion growth because of the
attraction of jobs, followed
by retirees and foreign im-
migrants.
"Even retirees are affect-
ed by economic conditions
because of the housing mar-
ket," said Smith. "If it's dif-
ficult for them to sell their
homes, they may have to de-
lay a retirement move to
Florida even if that is what
they had been planning to
do."
A 2008 United States
Census Bureau estimate (the
latest year for which census
information was available)
reported 39,802 residents in
the county. Smith had previ-
ously explained the differ-
ence is in the way data is
collected. UF uses data from
residential electric hookups,
building permits and, to a
lesser extent, homestead ex-
emption claims. He said the
U.S. Census Bureau uses re-
turn addresses on tax re-
turns, births and deaths and
Medicare data.

easier and less tiring to paint a ceiling while standing
on the floor rather than on a ladder. When painting a
textured ceiling, be sure to use a thick-nap roller to
ensure that you get full coverage over the bumps and
irregularities in the textured surface. For a smooth,
drywall ceiling, you can use a roller with a smooth or
shorter nap. Use quick-release painter's tape to mask
off the area and drop cloths for your floor. It's
advisable to prime your ceiling before painting using a
primer with stain-blocker. Priming the ceiling or walls
before painting should ensure that one coat of paint
will be sufficient. For more information contact the

CCS Center will soon

be planting vegetables


The clients at the Compre-
hensive Community Services
Center have a good reason to
look forward to the first
warm days of Spring. Raised
gardening beds have been
placed at the CCS Center and
they will soon be planting
their favorite vegetables.
It is part of the ongoing
support provided to CCS by
the Live Oak Garden Club.
The raised beds were de-
signed and built by two Gar-
den Club members, Earl
Black and Doug Ivie. The
garden beds are high enough
for even the clients in wheel-
chairs to be able to care for
the plants. The soil for the
beds was donated by Mitch
Beaver of Beaver Trucking
Company.


Members of the Garden
Club met at the Center armed
with shovels and buckets and
soon had the beds filled and
ready for planting. Members
of the CCS clients eagerly
helped spread the soil and
talked about what plants to
grow.
After talking with the CCS
clients and staff, it was decid-
ed that a third gardening bed
would be added at ground
level for plants like cucum-
bers. With completion of this
bed and the arrival of frost-
free weather, the Garden
Club members will be return-
ing to the center with plants,
seeds, spades and guidance
to help the CCS clients get
their gardens off to a good
start.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH
1 1 H II L, T'l
Q: Do adolescents have special
concerns for oral health?
A: No one has to tell the parent of an
adolescent that this stage of life has its
challenges. Hormones are raging and
the body is changing. That's why good
nutrition and oral hygiene are especially
important during the teen years. Cavities
and gum disease are not limited to
adults. Surveys have shown that
bleeding gums are most prevalent
among adolescents and that 75 percent
of 13 to 17-year-olds have had gums
that bled.
Between school and activities,
adolescents lead busy lives. Their
tendency to snack can lead them away
from a good diet and regular meals. If
they wear braces, remind them to keep
the spaces between the teeth and wires
clean by using floss threaders. There
also are special orthodontic
toothbrushes available on the market
that make cleaning braces and teeth
easier. If your teen is active in sports,
you should talk with your dentist about
what sort of mouth guard is appropriate.
A mouth guard helps not only to protect
teeth, but also guards against
concussion.

NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT


DOH recognizes National Women and Girls


HIV/AIDS Awareness Day


In Florida, women ac-
counted for 34 percent of
AIDS cases and 29 per-
cent of HIV cases. HIV
continues to dispropor-
tionately impact black
women, who make up 15
percent of the female
population and almost 72
percent of the AIDS cas-
,es among women. Most
HIV (88 percent) and
AIDS (85 percent) cases
among women are the re-
sult of heterosexual
..I transmission.
Cindy D. Morgan, R.N. "The AIDS epidemic is


28 years old. Women
and girls in Florida are
becoming infected with
HIV at an unacceptable
rate", said DOH Secre-
tary Ana M. Viamonte
Ros, M.D., M.P.H. "I am
encouraging communi-
ties to come together and
talk about ways to in-
crease awareness and re-
duce HIV infections
among women and girls."
This year the Depart-
ment of Health is contin-
uing to focus on address-
ing the racial disparity


that exists among black
women infected with
HIV. Individual commu-
nities are mobilizing
around the "Sistas Orga-
nizing to Survive (SOS)
model, which brings
women of color together
to learn, empower each
other, and pledge to get
tested and spread the
word on the importance
of HIV prevention. The
first step in this preven-
tion is for all women to
know their HIV status.
Testing for HIV is
widely available
throughout the state.
Many locations will have
extended hours and free
testing on the days sur-
rounding March 10. A


person should get tested
if they have been in-
volved with or participat-
ed in unprotected sexual
activity or sharing of in-
jection needles (drug
use, tattooing, pkciuli-')
and syringes.
For more information
about HIV/AIDS, visit
the Department of Health
website at
www.doh.state.fl.us and
select AIDS/HIV from
the pull down menu. For
more information about
how to get tested, con-
tact your healthcare
provider, local health de-
partment or community
organization or visit our
website.

for March 7-13, 2010, is a week-long tribute to
the commitment and dedication dental assistants
exhibit throughout the year.

is the theme for the 33rd annual Dental
Assistants Recognition Week: time for dental
assistants to receive greater recognition for their
own unique and diverse contributions to the
dental profession and the dental health care of
the public.

The American Dental Assistants Association
(ADAA) has been the recognized voice of dental
assisting for over 80 years. It remains committed
to enhancing the public image and stature of the
dental assisting profession and promoting quality
dental health care to the public.

Dental Assistants Recognition Week is sponsored
by the ADAA, the American Dental Association,
the Canadian Dental Assistants Association and
the Canadian Dental Association.

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
The NFL is
quickly getting
ready for next /
season. /
Familiar names
are hitting the waiver
wires in all sports. Pre-
season baseball is
happening. The airways
are filled with the major
sports. Some of the
strangeness is we have
heard some of these names
before.
The New York Giants
recently cut Londen Fryar.
Who is London Fryar? He
is the son of Irving Fryar
who was the number 1
pick of the 1984 NFL
Draft. Grant Hill is still
playing NBA basketball,
dad Calvin is still part of
the NFL but he doesn't
tote the ball for the
Cowboys anymore.
Baseball is filled with
second generation players
from Matthews to Griffey
to Kendall. The list goes
on and there are even a
few third generations.
The MLB season will
unfold and another
generation of fans will not
know why some
announcers have a job.

On Feb. 26, the girls

: "We only had one hit in
the game," said coach
Tommy Chambers. "Santa
Fe is really the best team at
this point in the the
district."
Before playing Santa Fe,
the girls beat Hamilton 11-
1, Feb. 23. Sophomore
Tinsley Smith threw one
hitter while striking out

On Feb. 19, Suwannee
lost a hard fought game at

COMMENTARY

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
Continued From Page 1B

Stone won a Cy Young in
1980. Hawk Harrelson
lead the American League


in RBIs in 1968 before he
was the voice of the White
Sox. Bob Uecker (Mr.
Belvedere) would have
probably had a very
different life if he hadn't
been the third string
catcher for 4 different
teams. Tim McCarver lead
the league in triples as a
catcher and played in 4
decades. Ron Darling won
136 games as a big league
pitcher and had the
longest no-hitter in NCAA
history. The list of ex-
players continuing in the
media seems to have
multiplied.


As time goes by many
forget Joe DiMaggio was
Mr. Coffee, not the other
way around. Joe Morgan,
who does ESPN games, is
in the Hall Of Fame. John
Madden has one of the top
winning percentages ever
as an NFL coach, not as a
Madden player. Pat
Summerall was a good
football player. Yogi Berra
was a 3-time MVP before
insurance commercials.
And if you happen to hear
a Pittsburgh Steeler
preseason game, Edmund
Nelson was born in Live
Oak.


Pitching is Tinsley Smith.

Don't Let Florida Officials

Remove YOUR RIGHT TO KNOW

From The Newspaper.


Keep Public Notices
In Your Newspaper!
Proposed legislation would remove
your right to read public notices in
newspapers, restricting them to
government web sites only.
We're concerned.
You should be, too.
Public notices are an important tool
in ensuring an informed citizenry.
They have played a key role in
America's participatory democracy
where it counts most: how your tax
dollars are spent and how policy is
made.
When located in easy-to-find
sections of your newspaper, they are
fully accessible to everyone, unlike the
Internet. Large segments of the state's
population, including more than half
of Floridians over 65 and one-third
of minority populations, do not have
Internet access.
The public's right to know cannot
be abandoned in favor of cost savings
that are elusive.


Consider that less than 10% of U.S.
citizens view a government web site
daily, according to the U.S. Census
Bureau. This contrasts dramatically
with the 83% of adults who read a
community newspaper every week,
according to the National Newspaper
Association.
Furthermore, a public notice printed
in the newspaper produces a
permanent record. A newspaper is
archived for years, and is not subject
to computer crashes and hackers.
Newspapers are easily verifiable,
fully transparent and represent
an impartial third party. Giving
government singular responsibility
for distributing public notices is like
putting the fox in charge of the hen
house.
Newspapers are your watchdogs.
Keep it that way. Contact your local
representative today and voice your
opinion.

'I hear your wild winds
keening through the tall
Macclenny pines....'
From 'Macclenny Farewell,'
by Will McLean
Leaving the city, moving through several miles
of orange groves and heading down to a wooded
campground, fans of Florida acoustic music will
find the 21st annual Will McLean Festival March
12-14 at the Sertoma Youth Ranch near Dade
City.
Beginning at noon Friday, the festival features
over 70 Florida performers including this year's
winners of the Best New Florida Song Contest:
Dawn DeWitt from Lake Worth, Walt Leuzinger
from Bushnell, and Michael Denney from Cocoa.
Five stage areas provide venues for a variety of
entertainment. Workshops in guitar, banjo, dul-
cimer, autoharp, harmonica, voice and more are
free for attendees.
A special Teen Turf, organized by young per-
formers, will present a program of young artists
from age 9 to college graduates. Children's ac-
tivities include creative projects in music and
painting.
The festival offers crafts and a variety of food.
Guests may attend for one day, or may camp for
the weekend and take part in jam sessions with
the professional musicians. A Gospel Hour on
Sunday begins at 9 a.m.
Will McLean wrote songs about Florida rang-
ing from the moaning blues of Macclenny
Farewell: "I hear your wild winds keening
through the tall Macclenny pines..." to the
rugged rhythms of Wild Hog: "There's a wild
hog in Gulf Hammock I don't wish on any man"
and the foreboding of Hold Back the Waters:
"When the wild winds are blowing across Okee-
chobee, they're calling and seeking for other
poor souls."
Dubbed "the Black Hat Troubador," he "dirt
dobbered"(his own expression) from the Panhan-
dle to the Everglades, teaching all who would
listen about nature's bounty and man's propensity
for destroying all that makes the state lovely and
desirable.
McLean, a member of the Florida Artists Hall
of Fame, died in 1990. His thousands of friends,
and fans of the music he loved have gathered
each year since his death to honor him and his
music. In addition, they perform their own songs
inspired in large measure by McLean. The festi-
val, honoring him will close at 5 p.m. Sunday
with a finale of his songs.

When days get longer and the weather
begins to warm up, it's a sure sign that
spring is around the corner. After months of
cold temperatures and gray skies, just about
everyone looks forward to spending time
outdoors taking in the sights, sounds and
scents of the season. But with temperatures
rising and flowers, trees and grasses
beginning to bloom, it's also time to protect
kids from seasonal allergies and sun
exposure. Here are some tips for keeping
kids healthy all spring long.
* Look out for signs of seasonal allergies.
Hay fever, also known as allergic rhinitis, is
a common problem in both infants and
children. Common symptoms include
repeated sneezing, a stuffy or runny nose
with clear drainage or congestion, itchy eyes
and nose, throat clearing, sore throat, and/or
a cough that tends to worsen at night and in
the morning. Kids with seasonal allergies
also tend to breathe through their mouth a lot
and may have dark circles under their eyes.
* Limit kids' exposure to common allergens.
While it's impossible to keeps kids clear of
all outdoor allergens, there are some
common-sense steps that can help minimize
their impact, such as keeping kids indoors
and closing windows in the early morning

when the spring tree pollen count is highest,
not hanging clothes outside to dry and
bathing kids at bedtime to help minimize
nighttime allergies.
* Protect skin from the damaging effects of
spring sun. After being indoors for much of
the winter, kids are eager to spend as much
time outdoors as possible. To protect their
skin during the spring months, break out the
sunscreen and their favorite hats. When
choosing a sunscreen for a baby, toddler or
young child, look for a product that offers
broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection
with a minimum SPF of between 15 and 30.
Also consider a product that is water
resistant and one that is hypoallergenic and
free of fragrance.
* Don't forget about eye protection. The
lenses of children's eyes are extremely
sensitive. Just as taking care of kids' skin
can help prevent skin cancer in adulthood,
eye protection can protect kids' eyes from
developing certain conditions, like cataracts
and macular degeneration, later in life.
Everyone, including kids, should wear
sunglasses year-round, but especially during
spring and summer. Make sure to choose
sunglasses that provide 100 percent UV
protection. Hats with brims large enough to
shade the eyes, while not as effective as
sunglasses, also offer moderate protection
from the sun.

The State Library and Archives has added an excit-
ing new exhibit called Pestilence, Potions, and Per-
sistence: Early Florida Medicine to its Florida Mem-
ory site. The online exhibit, which can be found at
http://floridamemory.com/Timeline/medicine/, in-
cludes materials from the collections of both the
State Archives and the State Library that highlight
the role of health and wellness in the lives of Flori-
da's citizens and in the development of the state.
Florida was vivid in the popular imagination as
both a refuge for rest and restoration and a wilder-
ness of great danger. Doctors and resorts promoted
Florida as a healthy destination for "consumptive in-
valids, for the nervous and debilitated, and for vale-
tudinarians of all degrees," while advertisements for
tonics warned of "an impenetrable swamp, full of
snakes, alligators, turtles, and strange reptiles."
Beginning with letters detailing the settling of the
new territory in the 1820s, and the journal of a fami-
ly practitioner and farmer in 1840s Gadsden County
detailing his remedies for everything from common
ailments such as itches and toothaches to serious cas-
es of colic and typhoid, these documents show the
gradual evolution of health and medical practice in
the state. Letters, manuscripts, telegrams, and publi-
cations document the panic caused by yellow fever,
the care offered by doctors combating hookworm,
and the determination of midwives facing killer hur-


ricanes in order to reach their clients.
This exhibit offers distinctive educational opportu-
nities for teachers and students by emphasizing the
crucial roles African-Americans, Native Americans,
and women played in the evolution of medicine in
Florida. It features photographs of the first black
doctors in the state, traditional Seminole healers, the
first female doctor, Clara Barton during the Spanish-
American War, and Dr. Samuel Mudd (convicted con-
spirator in the murder of President Lincoln).
Clearly unique in content, the exhibit represents
one of the most extensive archival exhibitions of its
kind presently available to the general public online.
Through the use of photographic, manuscript, and
published records, the exhibit provides historical per-
spective on important issues-public health and med-
ical care-that the state and nation are still debating in
the most visible political and social forums today.
Today, the Florida Memory Web site provides on-
line access to over 550,000 photographs, textual
records, sound ,.... ",,.. and movin,,, images from

Beginning with letters detailing the settling of the new territory in the 1820s,
and the journal of a family practitioner and farmer in 1840s Gadsden County
detailing his remedies for everything from common ailments such as itches and
toothaches to serious cases of colic and typhoid, these documents show the
gradual evolution of health and medical practice in the state.

Again of 2,870 residents is projected for the period April 2009 to April 2010. The state's population is on the way up as well, with about 23,000 new residents expected to flock to the Sunshine State. It's a reversal in both cases from last year, when Suwannee's population fell for the first time since 1972 and Florida's numbers dropped for the first time since World War II. The UF Bureau of Economic and Business Research Department conducted the study, which shows estimated growth between April 2009 and April 2010. The bureau's director noted the housing market is starting to pick up in a number of places around the state, which could explain the increase. "Based on changes in electric customer data, we believe Florida's population has increased slightly over the past year," said Stan Smith. "This may be an indication the state's economy is no longer declining at the rate it had been before."

Hudson was the driver in a June 2009 Suwannee County wreck that injured five area teenagers, according to an earlier sheriff's report. She was arrested on a charge of DUI and reckless driving both resulting in serious bodily injury. Court documents suggested she was under the influence of alcohol and/or marijuana at the time of the accident. Hudson was headed east on 296th Street around 6 p.m. June 10 when the 2006 Mercury she was driving left the roadway and struck a tree, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Wednesday, the DUI charge was amended and Hudson was formally sentenced on three counts of reckless driving resulting in serious bodily injury. In addition, she must serve 10 years'probation, complete the Mist substance abuse program, write a for-COURTSOne-year sentence in crash Chrysten Allyson Hudson No injuries were reported in this three-car crash near Suwannee Intermediate School Tuesday morning, Live Oak Fire's Alan Bedenbaugh said.

Eighty-three year old James "Brownie" Curley Bass also threatened to shoot his wife, a neighbor and a sheriff's deputy, according to a report filed by Sheriff's Deputy Sheriff David Allen. On Sunday Bass reportedly "disabled all the telephones at the residence" he and his 85-year-old wife shared in O'Brien. Meanwhile, Bass was said to be holding his wife inside against her will. When Bass fell asleep, the wife tried to escape to a neighbor so help could be summoned. The neighbor found Bass's wife lying in the yard and called 9-1-1, according to the report.

Pharmacy & Your Health 580990-FTreatment for Strep Throat InfectionsStrep throat is an infection of the throat that is caused by the bacteria Streptococcus pyog enes . Signs and symptoms include dif ficulty swallowing, swollen glands, headache, fever , and stomachache. The condition is contagious, and can be transmitted through coughing or sneezing. If not treated, the condition may lead to other conditions, such as an ear infection, sinus infection, or tonsillitis. Although many sore throats are caused by viruses and cannot be treated with antibiotics, a diagnosis of bacterial strep throat should be treated with antibiotics. Oral antibiotics are usually prescribed by a doctor after a diagnosis of strep throat has been made. Penicillin, amoxicillin ( Amoxil, T rimox ), azithromycin ( Zithromax ) or clarithromycin ( Biaxin ) may be prescribed. Cephalexin ( Keflex ) is a cephalosporin type antibiotic that also may be prescribed. Pain relieving medications may also be used, including ibuprofen ( Advil, Motrin ) or acetaminophen ( Tylenol ) for pain in the throat and fever reduction. A saline nasal spray ( Ocean Spray ) also may be used to help moisturize nasal passages. Adequate rest and hydration are other non-medication therapies recommended for relief of symptoms. A humidifier also may be useful for relief of cough and nasal congestion.by Joy Lamb, PharmDDrive-up window FARM BUREAU INSURANCEAUTO • HOME • LIFE Contact your county Farm Bureau agent for details.407 South Dowling Ave., Live OakDrane St. & Lafayette Ave., Branford362-1274 935-1274JOHN WIGGINS, Agency Manager JOHNNY BASS, Career AgentWANDA O'NEAL, Career Agent KEVIN GREENE, Career Agent582867-F YES "HELPING YOU IS WHAT WE DO BEST"HOMEOWNERS INSURANCEWe still write Thank you Shelby for giving me a great 80th birthday.

He was totally oblivious to all the noise and activity around him. How I envied his ability to slumber in such circumstances. I'm sure I did the same when I was that age, but those days are long gone. Ironically, when I was that tyke's age, I fought tooth and nail against nodding off. And I'm sure the little boy in the grocery cart had done the same. After all, when you are a child, you just know the moment you close your eyes, you are going to miss something really exciting in this brand new world that you occupy. I suspect every little kid fights going to sleep ... at least 364 days a year. "Mama, please let me stay up one more hour," must be a universal plea heard around the globe. The one possible exception to that norm might be Christmas Eve when, at least in my case, it was easy to get me to go to bed. That's because the folks warned Santa wouldn't come until I had sacked out. Of course, just because I crawled into bed without protesting didn't mean I'd quickly nod off. In fact, I'd lie there in the darkness holding my breath, hoping I'd hear Saint Nick's sleigh and reindeer land on the roof. I wasn't sure what that might sound like, but I figured I'd know it when I heard it! Several Christmas mornings I'd ask to go up on the roof to look for tracks. Somehow that never happened. Later, when I started losing my baby teeth, I remember being a little frightened of going to sleep. I wasn't sure I wanted the Good Fairy crawling around under my pillow looking for a tooth, even if she was going to leave me a dime. In fact, back then I often slept with my head under the pillow, and worried if she came while I was in that position, would she believe I was offering up ALLmy teeth for the taking. Admittedly, I was a strange child. By the time you are a teenager, you are certainly willing to sleep, but only between the hours of 3 a.m. and 3 p.m. Parents like to think it is because teens are trying to avoid mowing the yard, cleaning the house or washing the car. That's only partially true. The primary reason is just to avoid them! That's because when you are a teen, you are convinced you must have been adopted. There's simply no way a "cool dude" like you could be the offspring of such nagging losers. As a working adult, I never seemed to get enough sleep. Most often, it was some problem relating to the job I'd be mulling over at 3 a.m. I wouldn't have minded as much, if the boss had paid a "worrying bonus" at the end of each year. I broached the idea once. He just looked at me funny. Now that I am retired, I don't need anywhere near the amount of sleep I would like to have had when working. In fact, I am almost always up every couple of hours or so. Apreacher once told me it was God's miraculous way of telling me my time on this planet was limited, so make better use of what I had left. Far be it from me to question God's actions. I just wish He had found a way of limiting my sleep without involving my prostate!

Genesis 28:12 Most politicians, and probably most Americans, see health care as a right. Thus, whether a person has the means to pay for medical services or not, he is nonetheless entitled to them. Let's ask ourselves a few questions about this vision. Say a person, let's call him Harry, suffers from diabetes and he has no means to pay a laboratory for blood work, a doctor for treatment and a pharmacy for medication. Does Harry have a right to XYZ lab's and Dr. Jones'services and a prescription from a pharmacist? And, if those services are not provided without charge, should Harry be able to call for criminal sanctions against those persons for violating his rights to health care? You say, "Williams, that would come very close to slavery if one person had the right to force someone to serve him without pay." You're right. Suppose instead of Harry being able to force a lab, doctor and pharmacy to provide services without pay, Congress uses its taxing power to take a couple of hundred dollars out of the paycheck of some American to give to Harry so that he could pay the lab, doctor and pharmacist. Would there be any difference in principle, namely forcibly using one person to serve the purposes of another? There would be one important strategic difference, that of concealment. Most Americans, I would hope, would be offended by the notion of directly and visibly forcing one person to serve the purposes of another. Congress'use of the tax system to invisibly accomplish the same end is more palatable to the average American. True rights, such as those in our Constitution, or those considered to be natural or human rights, exist simultaneously among people. That means exercise of a right by one person does not diminish those held by another. In other words, my rights to speech or travel impose no obligations on another except those of non-interference. If we apply ideas behind rights to health care to my rights to speech or travel, my free speech rights would require government-imposed obligations on others to provide me with an auditorium, television studio or radio station. My right to travel freely would require government-imposed obligations on others to provide me with airfare and hotel accommodations. For Congress to guarantee a right to health care, or any other good or service, whether a person can afford it or not, it must diminish someone else's rights, namely their rights to their earnings. The reason is that Congress has no resources of its very own. Moreover, there is no Santa Claus, Easter Bunny or Tooth Fairy giving them those resources. The fact that government has no resources of its very own forces one to recognize that in order for government to give one American citizen a dollar, it must first, through intimidation, threats and coercion, confiscate that dollar from some other American. If one person has a right to something he did not earn, of necessity it requires that another person not have a right to something that he did earn. To argue that people have a right that imposes obligations on another is an absurd concept. Abetter term for new-fangled rights to health care, decent housing and food is wishes. If we called them wishes, I would be in agreement with most other Americans for I, too, wish that everyone had adequate health care, decent housing and nutritious meals. However, if we called them human wishes, instead of human rights, there would be confusion and cognitive dissonance. The average American would cringe at the thought of government punishing one person because he refused to be pressed into making someone else's wish come true. None of my argument is to argue against charity. Reaching into one's own pockets to assist his fellow man in need is praiseworthy and laudable. Reaching into someone else's pockets to do so is despicable and deserves condemnation. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University. To find out more about Walter E.

I was the only one at the breakfast club that morning who was wearing a tie. And after being informed and slightly chastised by the group that our meetings were informal, the discussion led to neckties with a consensus that they are non-functional except to keep gravy off your shirt. I had never been in a real deep discussion about neckties before but it seemed a viable subject, given the option was why we diagrammed sentences. I did point out that while I thought a necktie was mostly ornamental, one could be used as a tourniquet. So if you got bitten by a rattlesnake on the way to church, there was a certain degree of functionality. On the other hand, a clip-on bow tie couldn't even be used for a tourniquet. Nor would a bow tie stop much gravy from getting on your shirt. I've noticed that some men have trouble getting the necktie tied to the right length. Often they are too short. The rule of thumb is that the tip of the tie should go just below the belt buckle. But that all depends on where the belt buckle is. For instance the other day on television's "Dr. Oz," a rather obese fellow was asked what his waist size was. He said 38. Dr. Oz grinned and told him that his waist was not down there where his pants were fastened. As it turned out, his waist was a 48. Wearing a tie is probably due to that syndrome whereby we do things because other people before us did the same things without being questioned. Now I guess it's not really a syndrome, but I pointed out that we were all eating eggs, grits, toast, waffles etc. for breakfast because a long time ago someone got up one morning and decided that was the definition of breakfast. So what if we got up one morning and decided to have spaghetti, lasagna or country fried steak. And I told them the story of the time when I had butterbeans, cornbread and fried chicken for breakfast. Of course we had just unloaded a barn of tobacco and the man's wife who was to prepare breakfast for us had an emergency to attend to and thus we had to improvise with leftovers from the previous night's supper. It worked out pretty darn well. I haven't had a breakfast like that since that morning, but I also haven't unloaded a barn of tobacco in many, many years. Back to neckties. I do believe there's a factory somewhere that specializes in making ugly neckties. Almost every men's department will have a rack of ugly ties that have been separated from the pretty ones. You would think that someone would make notes and report back to the factory that these things are ugly, so don't do it anymore. It's like they had lots of dye leftover from the Easter egg coloring contest and rather than disposing of it as hazardous waste, they painted neckties. And in keeping with the Easter custom, they should have hidden those ties along with the eggs. So in the mode of treating a syndrome, today I didn't wear a tie to the breakfast club, and sometime today I vow to end a sentence with a preposition. Wow! I don't know where that one came from.

My "hat is off" to the folks who got this campaign going, and to all the folks who have gotten on board and joined the "Tea Party" to let those in Congress know that we, THE PEOPLE, have had enough! Called "Project 9-12," this group has started a movement that is quickly reaching far beyond Suwannee and Columbia counties, with similar signs popping up all around this country, and similar groups forming to really make a difference, especially in the coming months of 2010. I, for one, am jumping right on board, and hope everyone reading this newspaper will take a stand, speak up, and demand that the people WE have elected learn that WE are their employers, that WE pay their salaries, and that WE WILL have a say in what is going on in our government, and that WE will decide what is right for us, not a bunch of liberals who have voted themselves situations in which they do not have to worry about finances ... their salaries continue even when their terms are over ... as well as their health care and other benefits that continue until they die. And it seems every year they vote themselves a nice raise, while the general population is denied any increase in benefits such as Social Security and Medicare. Branford Camera Club will host the third in a series of three free workshops. The March workshop will be held during our regular meeting time at the Branford Public Library on Thursday, March 18, at 7 p.m. The March workshop will introduce participants to three areas of specialty photography: portrait, nature, and pet/animal photos. Skip Weigel, a retired local portrait photographer, will present the basics of portrait photography; Edwin McCook, an experienced local nature photographer, will cover basic nature photography; and Dick Bryant, a local freelance photographer with over 50 years experience, will provide guidance for taking pet/animal photos. Mentors may be requested for other areas of specialty photography such as kids, architecture, etc. If you missed the January and/or February workshops on "Camera Basics" and "Basic Composition, members can help you catch up.

Ashort presentation on Amendment 4 'Florida Hometown Democracy Land Use Amendment,' and a planning session for TEAparty to be held on April 15 at Olustee Park in Lake City. On March 25, at the same time and location, the next meeting will feature Randy McDaniels from the Jacksonville chapter of 'ACTfor America' who will give a presentation that will deal with another threat against this country and what we must do to protect ourselves against this threat. I sincerely hope we all pay attention to everything that is going on in this country and make our voices heard! There really is plenty we can do! And please, make it your business to read about all the local elections coming up, learn about the candidates, and make sure you get out and vote. There is no sense in complaining about the leadership in our local governments if you don't take part in the privilege of voting and vote the best person in. There are many seats up for election this year, and you can make a difference. On a personal note, my best wishes to Randy Hatch in his bid for state Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services. I have had the privilege of speaking with Randy in the past on other issues, and wish him the very best. There will be a 'cake and ice cream' time of fellowship following the Sunday evening worship service at O'Brien Baptist Church this coming Sunday, March 13. Come join us for a 'sweet time' of fellowship. Evening service is at 6:00pm. And don't forget, this coming Sunday marks Daylight Saving Time. Don't know what others think, but I wish "they" would just leave the time alone! There are still a couple of places in this country that do not observe this change, and they seem to get along just fine, thank you! However, don't forget to "spring forward", or you'll find yourself arriving at church next Sunday a little bit late! From Life's Little Instruction Book: "Life will sometimes hand you a magical moment. Savor it!" "Make a habit of reading something inspiring and cheerful just before going to sleep." "Open your arms to change, but don't let go or your values." "Pay as much attention to the things that are working positively in your life as you do to those that are giving you trouble." "Be an original! If that means being a little eccentric, so be it." "When a good man or woman runs for political office, support him or her with your time and money." Warm days are a-coming! Take the time to enjoy them! God bless!

According to a probable cause affidavit by Robinson, on Jan. 5 around 12:49 a.m. Avallone became "very angry and started shoving (his girlfriend) around the home" they shared in McAlpin. Avallone reportedly became angry after finding medication hidden in his girlfriend's van. The girlfriend reported that Avallone "grabbed her by her throat, causing some abrasions and bruises ... then grabbed her by her hair and began slamming her head up against the wall, causing a large bump to come on the front side of her forehead." Avallone then allegedly located a loaded, long barrel revolver, pointed it at her face and "told her that he wanted her dead." Avallone reportedly threw her "to the bed very hard causing small bruises," after she begged him to stop. Avallone was not at the residence when Robinson arrived. Robinson later contacted him by phone and asked him to turn himself in, but Avallone reportedly hung up on him. An arrest warrant was then filed.

Make sure that you have all the painting supplies you need especially a paint-roller with a long extension handle. It's much easier and less tiring to paint a ceiling while standing on the floor rather than on a ladder. When painting a textured ceiling, be sure to use a thick-nap roller to ensure that you get full coverage over the bumps and irregularities in the textured surface. For a smooth, drywall ceiling, you can use a roller with a smooth or shorter nap. Use quick-release painter's tape to mask off the area and drop cloths for your floor. It's advisable to prime your ceiling before painting using a primer with stain-blocker. Priming the ceiling or walls before painting should ensure that one coat of paint will be sufficient. For more information contact the professionals at Live Oak Paint & Flooring.This spring I would like to paint the ceiling in my kitchen but I'm not sure quite how to go about it; can you give me some tips?

That was the first time Suwannee has experienced a population decrease since the university began gathering such data in 1972. Smith said the recession and the housing bust were the main factors for the decrease. Suwannee's projected population as of April 2010 is 43,100, compared with 40,230 in April 2009, a 7 percent jump. "It appears the state's population loss was a oneyear occurrence," said Smith. "Even so, Florida's growth will be very slow during the early years of the new decade." Smith said it will take another four or five years for Florida to return to its normal average annual population gain of 300,000. He said the economy has a huge impact on Florida's population growth because of the attraction of jobs, followed by retirees and foreign immigrants. "Even retirees are affected by economic conditions because of the housing market," said Smith. "If it's difficult for them to sell their homes, they may have to delay a retirement move to Florida even if that is what they had been planning to do." A2008 United States Census Bureau estimate (the latest year for which census information was available) reported 39,802 residents in the county. Smith had previously explained the difference is in the way data is collected. UF uses data from residential electric hookups, building permits and, to a lesser extent, homestead exemption claims. He said the U.S. Census Bureau uses return addresses on tax returns, births and deaths and Medicare data.

At the conclusion of the finalist presentations, the reviewers will meet again to discuss each application, finalize scores and comments, and submit them to the U.S. Department of Education for a final decision on the distribution of funds. Fifty percent of a state's total award will be disbursed to participating school districts according to a federal funding formula (similarly used for Title I), and the remaining 50 percent will fund state-level projects designed to benefit all school districts statewide. Officials from the Florida Department of Education press office were unable to say how many states are expected to receive grant funding.

Allen reported that Bass "told a paramedic/firefighter that he would shoot him and anyone else there. I arrived and ordered the defendant to lay the weapon down and he refused. Defendant told me two times that he would shoot me." Allen said he had to grab Bass's right hand and push the pistol away from him several times before he was finally able to handcuff him.

Those testing positive will be issued a citation on site that will not involve a court hearing. The citations will result in the underage driver losing his or her license for six months.

Raised gardening beds have been placed at the CCS Center and they will soon be planting their favorite vegetables. It is part of the ongoing support provided to CCS by the Live Oak Garden Club. The raised beds were designed and built by two Garden Club members, Earl Black and Doug Ivie. The garden beds are high enough for even the clients in wheelchairs to be able to care for the plants. The soil for the beds was donated by Mitch Beaver of Beaver Trucking Company. Members of the Garden Club met at the Center armed with shovels and buckets and soon had the beds filled and ready for planting. Members of the CCS clients eagerly helped spread the soil and talked about what plants to grow. After talking with the CCS clients and staff, it was decided that a third gardening bed would be added at ground level for plants like cucumbers. With completion of this bed and the arrival of frostfree weather, the Garden Club members will be returning to the center with plants, seeds, spades and guidance to help the CCS clients get their gardens off to a good start.CCS Center will soon be planting vegetables Earl Black and Doug Ivie -Courtesy photo

A: No one has to tell the parent of an adolescent that this stage of life has its challenges. Horm ones are raging and the body is changing. That's why good nutrition and oral hygiene are especially important during the teen years. Cavities and gum disease are not limited to adults. Surveys have shown that bleeding gums are most prevalent among adolescents and that 75 percent of 13 to 17-y ear-olds have had gums that bled. Between school and activities, adolescents lead busy lives. Their tendency to snack can lead them away from a good diet and regular meals. If they wear braces , remind them to keep the spaces between the teeth and wires clean by using floss threaders. There also are special or thodontic toothbr ushes av ailable on the market that make cleaning braces and teeth easier. If your teen is a ctive in sports, you should talk with your dentist about what sort of mouth guard is appropriate. A mouth guard helps not only to protect teeth, but also guards against concussion.Presented as a service to the community by 571101-FASK DR. MANTOOTH362-6556 (800) 829-6506HERBERT C.

In Florida, women accounted for 34 percent of AIDS cases and 29 percent of HIVcases. HIV continues to disproportionately impact black women, who make up 15 percent of the female population and almost 72 percent of the AIDS cases among women. Most HIV(88 percent) and AIDS (85 percent) cases among women are the result of heterosexual transmission. "The AIDS epidemic is 28 years old. Women and girls in Florida are becoming infected with HIVat an unacceptable rate", said DOH Secretary Ana M. Viamonte Ros, M.D., M.P.H. "I am encouraging communities to come together and talk about ways to increase awareness and reduce HIVinfections among women and girls." This year the Department of Health is continuing to focus on addressing the racial disparity that exists among black women infected with HIV. Individual communities are mobilizing around the "Sistas Organizing to Survive (SOS) model, which brings women of color together to learn, empower each other, and pledge to get tested and spread the word on the importance of HIVprevention. The first step in this prevention is for all women to know their HIVstatus. Testing for HIVis widely available throughout the state. Many locations will have extended hours and free testing on the days surrounding March 10. A person should get tested if they have been involved with or participated in unprotected sexual activity or sharing of injection needles (drug use, tattooing, piercing) and syringes. For more information about HIV/AIDS, visit the Department of Health website at www.doh.state.fl.us and select AIDS/HIVfrom the pull down menu. For more information about how to get tested, contact your healthcare provider, local health department or community organization or visit our website. The Suwannee County Health Department will be offering FREE HIV testing for this event. Free HIVtesting will be offered at the Branford Health Department on Tuesday, March 9, 2010 from 8:30 a.m. 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. 4:00 p.m. Please call for an appointment. The Live Oak clinic will offer FREE HIV testing on Wednesday, March 10, 2010 from 8:00 a.m.11:00 a.m. and from 1:00 p.m. 4:00 p.m. No appointments are necessary. For questions, call Cindy D.

Familiar names are hitting the waiver wires in all sports. Preseason baseball is happening. The airways are filled with the major sports. Some of the strangeness is we have heard some of these names before. The New York Giants recently cut Londen Fryar. Who is London Fryar? He is the son of Irving Fryar who was the number 1 pick of the 1984 NFL Draft. Grant Hill is still playing NBAbasketball, dad Calvin is still part of the NFLbut he doesn't tote the ball for the Cowboys anymore. Baseball is filled with second generation players from Matthews to Griffey to Kendall. The list goes on and there are even a few third generations. The MLB season will unfold and another generation of fans will not know why some announcers have a job. The controversial Steve Suwannee outplays NewberryLadies look to weekend tournament By Jeff Watersjeff.waters@gaflnews.comThe Suwannee High School girls softball team outplayed Newberry March 2, 17-3. Junior Maegan Olson led the team 3-3, hitting with a double and a home run. On Feb. 26, the girls hosted Santa Fe. The Bulldogs were shut out 4-0. "We only had one hit in the game," said coach Tommy Chambers. "Santa Fe is really the best team at this point in the the district." Before playing Santa Fe, the girls beat Hamilton 111, Feb. 23. Sophomore Tinsley Smith threw one hitter while striking out seven. On Feb. 19, Suwannee lost a hard fought game at home to Ft. White, 7-5. Freshman Jessie Tenbroeck went 2-3 and freshmen Destiny Perrin went 3-4 with two RBIs. Suwannee plays Madison on their field tomorrow night at 6 p.m. before traveling to Alachua for the Santa Fe Tournament.

The list of explayers continuing in the media seems to have multiplied. As time goes by many forget Joe DiMaggio was Mr. Coffee, not the other way around. Joe Morgan, who does ESPN games, is in the Hall Of Fame. John Madden has one of the top winning percentages ever as an NFLcoach, not as a Madden player. Pat Summerall was a good football player. Yogi Berra was a 3-time MVPbefore insurance commercials. And if you happen to hear a Pittsburgh Steeler preseason game, Edmund Nelson was born in Live Oak.

Beginning at noon Friday, the festival features over 70 Florida performers including this year's winners of the Best New Florida Song Contest: Dawn DeWitt from Lake Worth, Walt Leuzinger from Bushnell, and Michael Denney from Cocoa. Five stage areas provide venues for a variety of entertainment. Workshops in guitar, banjo, dulcimer, autoharp, harmonica, voice and more are free for attendees. Aspecial Teen Turf, organized by young performers, will present a program of young artists from age 9 to college graduates. Children's activities include creative projects in music and painting. The festival offers crafts and a variety of food. Guests may attend for one day, or may camp for the weekend and take part in jam sessions with the professional musicians. AGospel Hour on Sunday begins at 9 a.m. Will McLean wrote songs about Florida ranging from the moaning blues of Macclenny Farewell: "I hear your wild winds keening through the tall Macclenny pines..." to the rugged rhythms of Wild Hog: "There's a wild hog in Gulf Hammock I don't wish on any man" and the foreboding of Hold Back the Waters: "When the wild winds are blowing across Okeechobee, they're calling and seeking for other poor souls." Dubbed "the Black Hat Troubador," he "dirt dobbered"(his own expression) from the Panhandle to the Everglades, teaching all who would listen about nature's bounty and man's propensity for destroying all that makes the state lovely and desirable. McLean, a member of the Florida Artists Hall of Fame, died in 1990. His thousands of friends, and fans of the music he loved have gathered each year since his death to honor him and his music. In addition, they perform their own songs inspired in large measure by McLean. The festival, honoring him will close at 5 p.m. Sunday with a finale of his songs. For information, call 352-465-7208 or visit www.willmclean.com. Artists scheduled to perform at the Will McLean Festival in Dade City this weekend include: Benjamin Dehart Paul Garfinkel.

After months of cold temperatures and gray skies, just about everyone looks forward to spending time outdoors taking in the sights, sounds and scents of the season. But with temperatures rising and flowers, trees and grasses beginning to bloom, it's also time to protect kids from seasonal allergies and sun exposure. Here are some tips for keeping kids healthy all spring long. * Look out for signs of seasonal aller gies. Hay fever, also known as allergic rhinitis, is a common problem in both infants and children. Common symptoms include repeated sneezing, a stuffy or runny nose with clear drainage or congestion, itchy eyes and nose, throat clearing, sore throat, and/or a cough that tends to worsen at night and in the morning. Kids with seasonal aller gies also tend to breathe through their mouth a lot and may have dark circles under their eyes. * Limit kids' exposure to common allergens. While it's impossible to keeps kids clear of all outdoor allergens, there are some common-sense steps that can help minimize their impact, such as keeping kids indoors and closing windows in the early morning when the spring tree pollen count is highest, not hanging clothes outside to dry and bathing kids at bedtime to help minimize nighttime allergies. * Protect skin from the damaging effects of spring sun. After being indoors for much of the winter, kids are eager to spend as much time outdoors as possible. To protect their skin during the spring months, break out the sunscreen and their favorite hats. When choosing a sunscreen for a baby, toddler or young child, look for a product that of fers broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection with a minimum SPF of between 15 and 30. Also consider a product that is water resistant and one that is hypoallergenic and free of fragrance. * Don't forget about eye protection. The lenses of children's eyes are extremely sensitive. Just as taking care of kids' skin can help prevent skin cancer in adulthood, eye protection can protect kids' eyes from developing certain conditions, like cataracts and macular degeneration, later in life. Everyone, including kids, should wear sunglasses year-round, but especially during spring and summer. Make sure to choose sunglasses that provide 100 percent UV protection. Hats with brims large enough to shade the eyes, while not as effective as sunglasses, also offer moderate protection from the sun.Keep Kids Healthy As Winter Gives Way to Spring 570641-F "Everything For Your Home Recovery"• Medical Equipment • OxygenLocally Owned & Operated101 SW U.S. Hwy. 27, Branford, FL 32008(386) 935-6905229 W.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Odd Even U U new new Odd EvenU U new new North Florida PAGE 10,MARCH 10 & 11,2010 CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE WWW.NFLAONLINE.COM SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA THEMost mail I receive from readers is friendly. Saving money with coupons is fun and rewarding and readers love to share their stories. But I receive my share of complaints. Here's one: Q: "I love a bargain as much as anyone, but I wonder if you have ever considered the health consequences of buying and eating so much processed food? Instead of buying cans of soup, why not buy a bag of beans and make your own soup with fresh vegetables?" A: There's a widely held myth that all couponers eat vast amounts of unhealthy, processed food. You might be surprised to learn that a good portion of what my family eats is organic. We also avoid artificial sweeteners, corn syrup and many highly processed foods. In the past month I've used coupons to fill my grocery cart with frozen vegetables, whole-grain cereals and breads and 100 percent fruit juices Ð all good, and good-for-you foods. Obviously, my column focuses on grocery savings with coupons. However, not all shoppers have the time or money to purchase only fresh, unprocessed foods. In the current economic climate, with so many people unemployed, many shoppers are concerned with providing good food for their households at an affordable price. Coupons help us do that. Here's the economic reality: It costs more money to make soup from scratch than it does to purchase a can of soup with a coupon. I've purchased organic and natural soups for as little as 10 cents a can with coupons. It's hard to buy one tomato for that price, let alone all of the other ingredients for a soup. Last week I got a great deal on yogurt. With coupons, I paid just 20 cents for each 4-cup pack. The 5 cents I paid per cup would not have covered the cost of ingredients to make yogurt from scratch, much less the seven hours' time it takes to incubate a yogurt culture. In the interest of saving time and money, I'll take my bargain-priced (and, yes, processed) yogurt. It's true that many processed foods are less expensive (especially with coupons) than unprocessed foods. But not all processed foods are bad for us. A bag of frozen vegetables is technically "processed food," in that it's been picked, washed, blanched and frozen, but that processing ultimately hasn't changed the vegetables for the negative. It may surprise you that frozen and canned produce contains higher levels of vitamins than fresh produce. Researchers from the Centre for Food Innovation at England's Sheffield Hallam University reported that nutrient levels are actually higher in frozen produce, because fruits and vegetables are picked at their prime ripeness and quickly frozen, preserving the vitamin content. By contrast, supermarket produce is typically picked before it is ripe, then transported and stored for days to weeks before it arrives at the store. Consider that 77 percent of the Vitamin C in fresh green beans is lost within seven days of being picked. By the time the beans end up in a cute bushel basket in the produce department, they have less than a quarter of the nutritional value of their frozen counterparts. A typical supermarket tomato is picked while it's still green. It's ripened with ethylene gas to turn the tomato red just before it's delivered to the supermarket. When tomatoes are not allowed to ripen on the vine, they're not as nutritious. By contrast, canned (and yes, again, processed) tomatoes are vine-ripened, picked and processed immediately. Canned tomatoes actually contain higher levels of the beneficial antioxidant, Lycopene. Coupons for canned and frozen produce are plentiful, as are coupons for many other healthy, natural and organic foods. The key is finding a balance between your family's eating preferences and your grocery budget. It's entirely possible to be a Super-Couponer and also eat healthily. My family does it each week. Next week, we'll hear from a reader who believes that coupon shopping is bad for the environment.

Continued From Page 6 The State Library and Archives has added an exciting new exhibit called Pestilence, Potions, and Persistence: Early Florida Medicine to its Florida Memory site. The online exhibit, which can be found at http://floridamemory.com/Timeline/medicine/, includes materials from the collections of both the State Archives and the State Library that highlight the role of health and wellness in the lives of Florida's citizens and in the development of the state. Florida was vivid in the popular imagination as both a refuge for rest and restoration and a wilderness of great danger. Doctors and resorts promoted Florida as a healthy destination for "consumptive invalids, for the nervous and debilitated, and for valetudinarians of all degrees," while advertisements for tonics warned of "an impenetrable swamp, full of snakes, alligators, turtles, and strange reptiles." Beginning with letters detailing the settling of the new territory in the 1820s, and the journal of a family practitioner and farmer in 1840s Gadsden County detailing his remedies for everything from common ailments such as itches and toothaches to serious cases of colic and typhoid, these documents show the gradual evolution of health and medical practice in the state. Letters, manuscripts, telegrams, and publications document the panic caused by yellow fever, the care offered by doctors combating hookworm, and the determination of midwives facing killer hurricanes in order to reach their clients. This exhibit offers distinctive educational opportunities for teachers and students by emphasizing the crucial roles African-Americans, Native Americans, and women played in the evolution of medicine in Florida. It features photographs of the first black doctors in the state, traditional Seminole healers, the first female doctor, Clara Barton during the SpanishAmerican War, and Dr. Samuel Mudd (convicted conspirator in the murder of President Lincoln). Clearly unique in content, the exhibit represents one of the most extensive archival exhibitions of its kind presently available to the general public online. Through the use of photographic, manuscript, and published records, the exhibit provides historical perspective on important issues-public health and medical care-that the state and nation are still debating in the most visible political and social forums today. Today, the Florida Memory Web site provides online access to over 550,000 photographs, textual records, sound recordings, and moving images from the State Library and Archives of Florida's collections. The program is funded by a Library Services and Technology Act grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the Florida Department of State, State Library and Archives of Florida.

First of all, a small part of me regrets the backlash that's washed over John Mayer concerning the remarks he made in his recent interview with Playboy magazine because it probably means most celebrities will continue to regurgitate safe, boring pabulum. Regardless of the content of Mayer's words, you have to admit that was a pretty rollicking interview with crazy, unguarded comments flying like shrapnel. I now know more about Mayer than I do most of my closest friends. "Mayer's use of a racial slur drew the most fire, even though in context the word wasn't used in a derogatory manner. Now Mayer's comment about his penis being a white supremacist, and comparing his own struggles to that of "one black dude's" were much more suspect. After reading Mayer's Playboy interview and his recent profile in Rolling Stone, I get the sense that Mayer has two big problems, aside from his music being dull. The first is that he seems to view his own life as some kind of great piece of performance art. The second Ñ out of which the first problem flows Ñ is he is monumentally self-involved. One gets the sense reading these interviews that the only person he ever thinks about is himself, and even when he thinks about other people or larger issues, such as race, he does so only insofar as they relate to and affect John Mayer. Maybe this is a natural consequence of celebrity, but in an era where every young person is the star of his or her own Facebook, Twitter and YouTube feed, I worry that such toxic narcissism will eventually be inescapable. Ted Leo and the Pharmacists: "The Brutalist Brick" Rating: A Ted Leo strikes me as the kind of guy Bruce Springsteen was at some point in the distant past, back before he played stadiums and only sold his albums at WalMart. Leo plays music like it's a blue-collar job, heroically cranking out album after album of melodic, finely-crafted guitar rock. On "The Brutalist Brick," his sixth studio album with the Pharmacists, Leo successfully turns leftist ideology into lusty-pop lyrics such as: "The means of production are now in the hands of workers/ But I still want to be guided by your expert hands/ Oh, lay your expert hands on me!" His background in Washington D.C.-area hardcoreCOLUMNMayer's narcissism hopefully not catchingcolors some of the tracks, such as "The Stick" and "Where Was My Brain?", but he also turns in some of the most optimistic pop songs of his career. On the album's standout track, "Bottled in Cork," he somehow moves from a failed United Nations resolution to the beautiful, repeating exhortation, "Tell the bartender, I think I'm falling in love." Seriously, this guy is a national treasure. Download "Bottled in Cork," "The Mighty Sparrow" and "Even Heroes have to Die." Song of the week William Bell: "I Forgot to Be Your Lover" The last time I was in Joplin I picked up William Bell's 1969 album "Bound to Happen_ for $3 at Eccentrix. It was one of my favorite finds in a record store in a long time, mostly because of the first track, "I Forgot to Be Your Lover." Bell's biggest single and one of my all-time favorites, the song begins with a peeling guitar that sounds, to paraphrase George Harrison, as if the strings are crying. The song is a two-minute apology: "I've been working for you doing all I can / But work all the time didn't make me a man / Oh, I forgot to be your lover /And I'm sorry, I'll make it up to you somehow." Bell, one of the soul label Stax's greatest singers, turns in a beautiful, understated performance, never giving into the histrionics that some of his peers were known for, but still managing to wring a novel's worth of emotion from the plain, straightforward language.
