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.

Thursday night crash took
the life of one of a
teacher's aide. Darlene A.


Newton, 66, died when her
2004 Kia struck a flatbed

Newton was a teacher's

She was known by her stu-

"The kids were pretty
close to her, they really
loved her," Davis said.
"She was like their grand-
ma, that's how a lot of them
saw her."
Davis said Newton

Marathon raises funds for breast

cancer research, care


Five local folks participated in
the Race with Donna recently to
raise funds for breast cancer re-
search and care. The race was
founded by Donna Deegan three
years ago and is the only
marathon in the country dedicat-


ed solely to that purpose.
More than 7,500 participated
and the local group took advan-
tage of a new provision that al-
lows a relay team to split the
26.2-mile marathon into five
legs.


These participants believe this
is the perfect race to prepare for
Relay for Life (coming soon to
Live Oak), which promotes
awareness of cancer, helps fund
research and raises money toward
a cure.

to complete. Take your time and your newly painted
house is bound to be the best looking home on the
block. We recommend a semi-gloss or gloss finish
helps to set off the flat color used on the siding.
Also this type finish tends to be more durable.
Scrape any loose paint from the trim. Caulk
windows as needed. Make sure the caulking is dry
before painting over it. You may need to give the
windowsills an extra coat of paint. Open the
windows enough so that the paint doesn't dry them
shut permanently. Paint inset panels first, then paint
the outer trim. For more information see your paint

Antibiotics Prescribed for Cystic Fibrosis
Cystic fibrosis is an inherited condition that affects the lungs,
pancreas, and other parts of the body. This condition is characterized by
thickened secretions that come from the lungs, pancreas, intestines, and
other major organs. Respiratory symptoms include a persistent cough,
difficulty breathing, and chronic bronchitis. Staphylococcus aureus,
haemophilus and pseudomonas aeruginosa are bacteria that
likely live in the airway of a person with cystic fibrosis.
Antibiotics are used to treat respiratory episodes in persons with cystic
fibrosis. They are usually prescribed to be taken by mouth for several
weeks for a mild episode caused by methicillin sensitive
Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA). The list of antibiotics commonly
prescribed include dicloxacillin, amoxicillin-clavulanate (Augmentin),
cephalexin i. , trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim, Septra),
and doxycycline (Adoxa, Doryx). For methicillin resistant
Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin or linezolid may be
prescribed. Tobramycin (TOBI), an aminoglycoside antibiotic, or
colistin are antibiotics given by inhalation for those infected with
Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Severe cases may require ceftazidime
(Fortaz), cefepime (Maxipime), aztreonam (Azactam), tobramycin, or
amikacin.

THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLER

New experiences
By Jim Holmes
Thanks to a broken leg and ankle, I've had a
lot of new experiences in recent weeks ... many
of which I would have done without, given the
choice.
I guess, at the top of the list would be getting a
shower. Mind you, I love the actual shower part,
which is made possible only because today's
physicians put many patients in removable plas-
tic casts. (If you haven't seen them, they favor
the knee-high boots worn by the storm troopers
in the Star Wars movies.) Had I been encased in
one of the old fashioned plaster casts - the
norm in bygone days - I would have been pre-
cluded from getting anything but sponge baths
during my eight-week recovery.
Everything comes with a trade-off, however.
Thanks to the availability of these new casts, my
caregiver wife has been forced to watch over an
old, fat man as he hops on his remaining good
leg to get in and out of the shower. Without go-
ing into any graphic detail, I'll just say the
process is not graceful. In fact, it only can be ac-
complished by completely surrendering one's
dignity. On the other hand, I'm sure we could
win the $100,000 grand prize offered by Ameri-
ca's Funniest Home Videos, if I would just allow
my wife to record it. (And with today's medical
costs, that may yet become an option.)
Showering in my current state also has clearly
demonstrated to me that the United States does
not have to use "water boarding" to get terrorists
to confess. They just need a small, tiled enclo-
sure equipped with a shower stool. Plant your
bare bottom on that device on a nippy North
Florida morning and I guarantee you'll answer
any question put to you, no matter how self-in-
criminating!
Then there is the cabin fever that goes with a
broken leg. In my case, I was in enough discom-
fort the first five weeks that I had no interest in
going anywhere. By week six, however, things
had changed. Lynda finally agreed to take me
shopping with her at Wal-Mart after she found
my nose prints all over the window on our front
storm door. I can't believe how excited I was
about the prospect of the outing. You would have
thought I was taking a luxury cruise of the Greek
Islands rather than just spending an hour or so
picking up a few groceries.
Once we arrived at the store, I was assigned
one of those nifty motorized shopping carts the
chain retailers all have these days. I thought this
was just great, until I realized that I was now one
of 12 or 15 old coots tooling up and down Wal-
Mart's aisles. You might call it "The Live Oak
500 for Seniors!" On second thought, maybe it
should be called the "Old Coot Demolition Der-
by." After all, based on what the baskets look
like on those shopping scooters, clearly most
have been operated at one time or another at
ramming speed.
I guess being a neophyte driver only qualified
me to use the slowest cart in the store. I didn't
mind as I was in no hurry to get home. Appar-
ently, however, many of my senior peers have
better things to do with their lives. Several
seemed to give me dirty looks as they sped
around me and I think one old gal actually
mulled-over the idea of gracing me with a one-
fingered salute for delaying her mad dash to the
produce department.
Overall, however, my first motorized shopping
trip went well. There was one slight mishap. On
Aisle 22, I ran over and broke a bottle of beer.
But I don't think I should be held responsible for
that. After all, the guy had it in his hip pocket!
Jim Holmes lives in Live Oak.

Hope I didn't jinx
By Dwain Walden
Every deer season I offer my warning
about novice hunters shooting cows,
dogs, horses and people after mistaken- -
ly identifying them as game. For some
reason, I have never issued a similar
warning at the onset of turkey season,
which is now upon us.
It could be because I've yet to hear of
anyone being mistaken for a turkey, which I think is iron-
ic given that we probably have more turkey resemblance
out there than we do deer look-a-likes. What I mean is, I
would think that during spring gobbler season we would
lose at least two politicians for the obvious reasons and
perhaps one Indian chief, also for the obvious reason.
I'm not a turkey hunter but I did bag one big gobbler
when I was a teen-ager.
I was squirrel hunting on the coldest day of the year
when I happened upon a gobbler. I shot it and very proud-
ly took it home. Then I very humbly dressed it all by my-
self in 18-degree weather. The whole time I was thinking
that for just a few bucks I could have bought a turkey al-
ready dressed at the grocery store ... a warm grocery store.
Now in bringing up this subject, I hope I have not jinxed
the whole matter by saying that so far I haven't heard of
anyone mistaking someone for a turkey and shooting him.
I've watched lots of football where an announcer brags
about how a quarterback hasn't thrown an interception in
five straight games and on the very next play he gives it up.
Actually, I really don't believe in jinxing stuff although
as kids we used to try it while shooting marbles. We would
wave our hands and yell "monkey dust!" just before an op-
ponent shot. I have no idea what "monkey dust" is


I


you turkey hunters
unless it has something to do with an orangutan dipping
snuff. It was just handed down by marble shooters before
us, and we never questioned it.
I think maybe fewer people turkey hunt than deer hunt
which aids the safety issue. As well, I think it takes much
greater skill and knowledge to hunt turkey than to hunt
deer, thus maybe a greater level of intelligence when com-
bined with a deadly weapon makes for a better outcome.
Just a hunch.
As well, turkey hunters use shotguns instead of rifles so
the range of the weapon is much less, minimizing the
chance of carnage on an errant shot. The turkey has to be
closer than a deer for a kill shot. So that proximity would
decrease the chances of a politician, an Indian chief or a
Yankee Doodle with a feather stuck in his hat being mis-
taken as turkeys.
By the way, why did old Doodle call his feather maca-
roni? I don' see any resemblance. And because I didn't do
the best job of dressing that turkey,
I know that a feather taste nothing like a noodle.
So, maybe this tendency of mistaken identity in the wild
has its founding in our forefathers' melodic essays. Or
maybe there's no correlation ... after all, this guy Doodle
was a Yankee.
Whatever, I would be remiss not to remind those who
go for the gobble to be very careful. Even if you hear a
gobble, don't shoot until you can positively identify it's the
right bird. Remember that it is an election year and there
are some people out there who can sound and act much like
turkeys.

Walking for Water in O'Brien


Walkers gathered in O'Brien to help raise money to supply clean water for the people of Sudan.

March 14th marked a fun and signifi-
cant day for 41 walkers at Northern
Florida Christian Center in O'Brien. Ten
Protestant and Catholic churches with
all ages but primarily teens and young
adults, gathered to Walk for Water
around the church square followed by a
delicious potluck supper.
Volunteer Director for Persecution


Project, Carol Hudgins, gave her pro-
gram two weeks earlier and then partici-
pants went out and gathered sponsors
for a new well in Darfur, Sudan. This
region has seen ongoing persecution of
Christians. Many Muslims are also be-
ing forced off their ancestral lands by
the Khartoum government and are
grateful and inquisitive as to why Chris-


tians a half a world away are helping
them in their distress where hundreds of
thousands are being stranded in the
desert with no source of clean water.
All the walkers worked hard and a to-
tal of $7,588 was raised from the gener-
ous sponsors! This will pay for half a
well, which will be matched by donors
in other states. In addition to the wells,


Persecution Project brings in food, med-
icine, grains, Bibles, the Jesus film, and
solar power radios for those illiterate.
They also build orphanages and schools.
Their motto is "Do what you can, where
you are, with what you have!" What a
difference a group of young people have
had on their world! Congratulations to
all walkers!

McAlpin Advent Christian

Church prepares for Holy Week


By Ana Smith
Well, if you followed the news over
the weekend, and I'm sure most of you
did, we've had that healthcare plan
shoved down our throats, despite the fact
that most citizens have protested it loud-
ly and fervently. While some of it may
be of benefit, the idea that government
demands we carry the insurance they
provide or we'll be penalized grates at
my nerves, as well as all the other dic-
tates and invasions into my personal life
that have nothing to do with my health;
it is just not acceptable. I, for one, will
be out there, doing whatever I can to
protest not only this terrible bill but also
those who voted for it. And watching
the proceedings on TV most of yester-
day (Sunday) proved to me just how ar-
rogant and how self-serving so many in
Congress have become. If any of them
had to live by the same rules they hand
out to us, I wonder how many would
have still voted yes???? It must be a
powerful feeling to make laws that they
don't have to abide by!!
Enough said ... at least for now!
Have you had enough of the cold
weather yet? I sure have! But at least I
got a lot of outside work done those
days in which it was sunny and warm.
Lord, please return the sunshine to Flori-
da, so we can call ourselves the "Sun-
shine State" again. It was such a delight
to wake up to the sun coming in the win-
dows early in the morning, and sitting
out on the front porch in the sunshine.
My sincere sympathies go to Mona
Hurst, Marcia Hurst and Diane Walker-
Saunders in the passing of their sister,


Faye, last week. This family has been
good friends to my son, Grady, and his
wife, Lori, for several years, and I know
the "going home" of their sister will
leave a hole in their hearts.
It's "Spring Break" for our children
next week, so check out the "Calendar"
section of this newspaper for events that
will be going on. The Suwannee County
Fair is scheduled for the first week in
April, and Easter is almost here. And
there is plenty of activity at the Spirit of
the Suwannee the next few weekends.
This coming Sunday is Palm Sunday,
and if you don't have a church home yet,
please come and join us at O'Brien Bap-
tist Church for Sunday School Sunday
morning at 10 a.m., followed by morn-
ing worship at 11 a.m. and evening ser-
vice at 6 p.m. No matter what your de-
nomination preference, there is a church
waiting to welcome you in. You don't
need fancy "church clothes" to come
worship our Lord, just a willing and an
open heart. HE will take care of the
rest!
If you have a daughter interested in
Girl Scouts, Troop 130 meets at O'Brien
Baptist Church the 2nd and 4th Satur-
days in our fellowship hall. Next meet-
ing is this Saturday. Call the church of-
fice at 935-1503 for more information.

On Palm Sunday, March 28,
Laramie Bertolino and Patty Giane-
skis will team up to present a med-
ley of sacred music during the 10:50
a.m. morning worship hour at
McAlpin Advent Christian Church.
Accompanied by Mrs. Bertolino,
Mrs. Gianeskis will sing, "The Lord
is My Shepherd" and "Too High a
Price." Worship will conclude with a
benediction of hymns, including,
"Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus."
Palms will be distributed as people
leave the service.
"I will be using the gospel scrip-
tural text found in Mark chapter 11
and relating it to the church being
the only institution that exists pri-


marily for the needs of those not yet
members," said Pastor Paul Bertoli-
no. "The church, like the lifeboats
on the Titanic, has plenty of room
for others. Tragically, on the Titanic,
only 700 out of the 2223 passengers
survived. We, as a church, will do
all we can to get others aboard."
On April 1 at 6:30 p.m., Pastors
Paul Bertolino and Dr. David Dean
will officiate at a Maundy Thursday
communion service. Easter Sunday
will be celebrated on April 4. Dr.
Dean's book, Resurrection Hope,
will be given to every visitor. Every
Sunday includes a Christian Educa-
tion hour at 9:45 a.m. for all ages.
The church is located at 17214
89th Road. Call the pastor at 658-

GAMETIME


I Metro 031


By Cody Webb
It's good to see that in
this new multiplayer-fo-
cused gaming world of
ours, that a good story and
single-player component
haven't been pushed aside.
Metro 2033 has done a
good job of bringing story
back to the spotlight by
foregoing multiplayer to fo-
cus on crafting an engaging
narrative. Unfortunately for
PS3 gamers, Metro is only
available for the Xbox 360
and Windows PC.
Most gamers most likely
won't know anything about
Metro 2033, but that's OK,
let me give you a little
backstory: it's based on the
tale of a Russian book un-
der the same title. The nar-
rative follows a man named
Artyom, who was born in
Moscow before a nuclear
disaster that resulted in the
surface becoming uninhab-
itable. Humanity has been
forced to live in the under-
ground Metro tunnels and
stations, living a dark and
depressing life of scaveng-
ing and fighting mutants to
survive.
Metro's best and most
obvious achievement
would be the atmosphere of
despair and dread that the
game nails perfectly. The
many underground areas
are dark and moody, filled
with sounds of unknown
origins and the threat of
monsters in every shadow.
It's not all horror, however,
whenever you happen upon
one of the many human set-
tlements in the Metro sta-
tions, you can get a sense of
hope or oppression. The
stations are cramped with
people chatting away with
each other, giving the illu-
sion that you are trying to
edge your way through a
crowd of living people.
Further adding to the
game's atmosphere would
be the developer's smart
choice to leave the game
mostly HUD-less. This al-
lows a nice, uncluttered
view of the destroyed tun-
nels and mutated creatures
that you'll find yourself en-
countering. Amount of
damage and direction of at-
tacks are shown as blood
splatters and bloodied vi-
sion; though there is a more
traditional ammo counter
that appears when you use a
weapon.
Being without a HUD
gets challenging when you
surface out of the under-
ground and into the ruins of
Moscow. Remember what I
said about the surface being
uninhabited? Well, the 20
years between the disaster


ASK DR. MANTOOTH

II1A Mlt I I
Q: What happens if I lose a tooth?
A: In the normal healthy mouth, teeth
support one another. The loss of a tooth
can come from a sudden trauma, or from
neglect, letting a tooth decay to the point
of crumbling or ignoring gum disease that
can eventually destroy a tooth's support
system. If you lose a permanent tooth,
you should see a dentist as soon as
possible. Once one tooth is gone, the
teeth adjacent to it will begin to shift and
loosen. The end result, over time, is a
domino effect of lost teeth. Not only will
missing teeth put a serious dent in your
smile, they may hamper your ability to
speak and chew.
Depending on the circumstances, your
dentist may be able to correct your
situation with a crown, if part of the tooth
is left, or a bridge. The bridge is an
appliance that would be anchored on the
neighboring teeth and would fill the spot
where the tooth has been lost. Another
option is an implant, which involves the
installation of a metal post in your jaw that
would anchor an artificial tooth. Not
everyone, however, is a candidate for an
implant. There must be sufficient jawbone
for the procedure to be feasible. Visit your
dentist at least twice a year and tooth
loss will most likely not be a problem.

and when Artyom ventures
out into it haven't im-
proved the conditions any.
Anyone who goes out into
the ruins has to wear a gas
mask, and since there isn't
a HUD: players are re-
quired to check a wrist-
watch to keep track of how
much time they have left in
their filter. Unless you
want to choke on the irradi-
ated air and keel over dead,
that is. Metro does a great
job of making you feel like
a scavenger: whenever you


kill a human enemy, you
can (and should) loot any
ammo visible on their bod-
ies, plus whatever is in
their gun. Your mask can
get damaged and rendered
useless, at which point
you'll have to find yourself
a new one. The weapons
you will find and use are,
mostly, modem weapons
with homemade attach-
ments or improvements.
The gunplay should
make any shooter fan hap-
py: the combat is tight and


shots are as accurate as you
are. Aiming and firing in
bursts makes a difference,
plus some guns can be out-
fitted with a scope to help
make long-range shots eas-
ier. It's unfortunate that the
knife isn't a one-hit kill,
since it's one of the few
melee weapons you get (the
other is a bayonet you can
get on a couple of
weapons).
If you'd prefer to not
blast your way through en-
emies, Metro does give you


SAVE ON SUPPLIES


the option to be stealthy.
On your watch is three little
lights, each indicating how
visible you are. You can ef-
fectively hide from ene-
mies and put them out one
by one with silenced
weapons or throwing
knives. However, due to
some quirks in the A.I., the
enemies will sometimes
find you without you hav-
ing done anything.
So in the end, what is
Metro 2033? It's a magnifi-
cent story told through ex-


cellent (usually) first-per-
son cut scenes and a moody
atmosphere, but it does
have a couple of nagging
little issues. They aren't
gamebreakers, however,
and shouldn't prevent any-
one from checking out this
game. I'll give Metro 2033
an A; the book has a sequel,
so does that mean we can
look forward to one as
well? I hope so!

No race would be a success
without winners and that's
what Comprehensive Com-
munity Services had this year
at their 12th Annual Lawn
Mower Race held Saturday at
the Spirit of the Suwannee
Music Park. People traveled
from as far away as Ohio to
participate in what has be-
come one of Live Oak's most
entertaining events and to
help raise almost $13,000 to
support individuals with de-
velopmental and intellectual
disabilities from the local
area.
With good weather behind
their backs, race announcers
Wayne Littrell, Debbie Mur-
ray and Dennis Nixon kept
the huge crowd charged up as


the racers made their way
around the course. Each rider
used a new mower, provided
by John's Lawn Equipment in
Live Oak, and for some of
them it was an intimidating
experience. The crowd had as
much fun watching the riders
hanging on as they leaped off
the starting line as they did in
watching the race itself.
To make this year's event
more interesting, each indi-
vidual or team rider was re-
quired to stop at seven differ-
ent 'pit stops' around the track
and complete an amusing task
assigned by the Stop sponsor.
When all the laps were com-
pleted and the pit stops made,
Jason Jenkins, driving for
Mike's Pump Repair, took
home first place in the indi-


vidual competition and the
members of the Arc of Florida
took home first place in the
team category. The team
Hannah's Homies was the top
money raiser for the event,
bringing in contributions of
over $1,600.
"At the end of the day, the
real winners will be the
clients from CCS since all the
money we raised will be used
to provide services for them"
said CCS Executive Director
Bobbie Lake.
Added Debbie Lee, CCS's
program director, who helped
orchestrate the event, "We re-
ally want to thank the people
from the community and our
business partners who turned
out in full force with their
support and sponsorships."

Standing, from left: Fallon Ratliff - Student Advisor, Stacy Erixton - Parliamentarian; Hunter Deas - Chaplain; Wyatt Thomas- Reporter; Jonathan Haney- Treasurer; Caleb Land - Sen-
tinel. - Courtesy photo


Note: The Suwannee Middle School
chapter of the Future Farmers of America
was inadvertently omitted from our recent
FFA ti ,-ti. pages. Here's what the) 'n,,.'
folks at SMS have been up to.

Suwannee Middle School FFA has been
very busy this year. Students have been ac-
tive in numerous activities. Suwannee
Middle School FFA has 116 members. The
officer team consists of 10 members.

The 2008-09 officer team included:
President - Mallory Morgan
8th Grade Vice-President - Harli Feeney
7th Grade Vice-President - Allie Randell
Secretary - Darrah Lane
Treasurer - Johnathon Haney
Reporter - Wyatt Thomas
Sentinel - Caleb Land
Chaplain - Hunter Deas
Parliamentarian - Stacy Erixton
Student Advisor - Fallon Ratliff

SMS FFA was represented at a Suwan-
nee County School Board meeting on Oct.
27. Chaplain Hunter Deas prepared and led
the invocation while President Mallory
Morgan led everyone pledging the flag.
In September, Chapter President Mallo-
ry Morgan and 8th Grade Vice President
Harli Feeney attended the Chapter Presi-
dent's Conference in Daytona Beach, to
hone their leadership skills.


Also in September, several Chapter Of-
ficers attended COLT (Chapter Officer
Leadership Ti.iiiiii-:' at Lake City Com-
munity College. Students learned about
tolerance, how to effectively communicate
with others and how to recruit new mem-
bers.
SMA FFA has also been raising money
for their yearly awards banquet, which will
be held in May. Officers and members in a
joint effort with SMS Art club worked in
the concession stand from September
through January. They were present at
SMS football and soccer games. Thank-
you to the members who helped at the
games preparing, selling and serving
snacks and drinks.
On Oct. 8, students competed in the Dis-
trict forestry contest at Lake City Commu-
nity College. This was the first time some
of these students competed in this event.
They studied hard learning the tools used
in forestry, identifying trees and insects,
learning how to estimate timber volume,
along with compass and pacing. SMS had
three teams enter this event.
In October FFA sweethearts participated
in the SHS Homecoming parade. FFA
Sweethearts Harli Feeney and Wyatt
Thomas rode together in a convertible
SMS FFA also attended the FFA Nation-
al convention in October in Indianapolis.

Thomas got to walk across the Convention
stage in front of over 40,000 people to ac-
cept a plaque for being a three star Nation-
al Chapter.
The FFA Middle School Conference was
held in December at the FFA Leadership
Training Center. Chapter officers attended
the conference. They gained leadership
knowledge, how to work more closely
with members and enhanced their planning
skills.
During November SMS FFAheld a jack-
et drive. Members donated their outgrown
jackets. By cleaning out their closets they
collected around 100 jackets. These jack-
ets were donated to needy families in
Suwannee County. These jackets had quite
a bit of good use left in them and were just
in time for the cold weather. SMS faculty


and staff also participated. Thank you to
everyone who participated.
You may have seen the FFA officers and
members at Christmas on the Square. They
helped locally owned Shenandoah Dairy
with their live calf exhibit. Officers and
members tended to the calves in the pen.
They also assisted children and adults who
wished to pet and feed the calves. Bottles
of warm milk were made to feed to the
calves. They also made sure the calves did
not get out of the pen. Everyone was asked
to use hand sanitizer and dry their hands.
Coloring books telling about how the
calves are cared for on the farm and the
milking process were also handed out to
the children. Additional photos, Page 14A.

Local numbers are nearly twice the state average


Continued From Page 1A

In Suwannee, the teen
pregnancy rate is 17.8 per-
cent, well above the state
average of 10.7 percent,
according to the Florida
Department of Health
(FDOH).
"The figures include
teenagers ages 13 to 19,"
Cody said, "we're talking
middle school and high
school."
The Suwannee County
School Board has adopted
a district-wide abstinence
stance on the issue. How-
ever, that doesn't hide the
fact that many teens are
having sex and oftentimes
becoming pregnant.
Margaret Wooley, health
and food services coordi-
nator for the district, said,
"the only type of regular
sex education curriculum
is being taught in the 9th
grade, at both Suwannee
and Branford High."
Grant funds for a strate-
gic abstinence program
were cut two years ago, she
said.
"Both Principal (Dawn)
Lamb and Principal (Ted)
Roush thought it was im-
portant enough that they
kept the sex education
course as part of their
schools' regular curricu-


lum."
In addition, the district
maintains a teenage parent
program, which identifies
pregnant teens, contacts
their guardians, assigns
students mentors and pro-
vides post-birth daycare
services.
Kathy Sellgren, a nurse
at SHS, said teen pregnan-
cy is more than just a
Suwannee County prob-
lem.
"There is a need on a so-
cietal level to readdress
this problem; it's societal,
not just a school problem,"
she said.
Each Wednesday,
through a partnership with
the health department and
school system, Cody ar-
rives at SHS to meet with
pregnant teenage students,
said Sellgren, who acts as
liaison.
"There's anywhere from
about 1-4 teenage girls a
week, and sometimes they
come with their significant
others, to meet in a confer-
ence room or designated
area on campus," she said.
Similarly, Cody meets
with BHS teens twice a
month on Thursdays, she
said.
Pregnant students who
arrive for the meetings are
offered Healthy Start ser-

vices through the health de-
partment. Healthy Start,
which has been in effect
since 1991, offers prenatal
risk screening for moms
and babies. The program
also offers home visits by
nurses and social workers,
information about pregnan-
cy and baby care, education
about healthy pregnancies,
help quitting smoking,
childbirth classes, parent-
ing education and support,
health education (family
planning, woman's health,
nutrition and exercise),
along with counseling ser-
vices, according to FDOH.
"It gives them a way to
seek the care they need,"
Sellgren said. "We strongly
advocate that students dis-
close their pregnancy infor-
mation to their parents if
they have not done so.
Most times parents find out
before I do," she said.
The number of teenage
pregnancies in Suwannee
may appear unusually high
because "we are a close-
knit community. Often
friends of students go out
of their way to alert me of a
pregnancy," she said. "That
happens a lot."
Damon Wooley, who
teaches 9th-12th grade
health at SHS said topics
covered in his class include
conception, birth and sexu-
ally transmitted diseases or
STDs.
"I teach straight from the
text that the only 100 per-
cent certain way to know
that you won't contract an
STD or become pregnant is
abstinence - which not
only addresses sexual inter-
course, but also oral sex,"
he said.


"In no way, shape or
fashion do I condone or
promote sexual activity.
However, if a kid does ask
me I'm going to try and ad-
vise them on the risks in-
volved.
Wooley said by law, the
school cannot distribute
condoms or other contra-
ceptive devices.
"But if a kid asks, I'm
going to refer them to the
health department, a phar-
macy and tell them they
need to discuss it with their
parents."
He said in the 10 years
he's taught health and sex
education at SHS he has
seen that "most kids do not
feel comfortable discussing
this information with their
parents. My students have
questions that you can't
even print, and most people
if they sat in my class
would blush and parents
would probably faint."
Wooley said he has never
had a student approach him
who found out that they
were pregnant. However,
he said, many have ap-
proached him thinking they
may have contracted an
STD.
Nurse Sellgren admitted
the exact number of preg-
nant students within the
district may not be known
because not all students re-
ceive their care through the
health department.
"A lot of kids are getting
private care; We aren't the
only avenue for them to get
the care," she said.
The teenage parent pro-
gram remains the district's
best effort at keeping
teenage parents in school,
said Elizabeth Simpson, di-

"We provide and pay for
daycare services so that we
can keep that teenage par-
ent in school. The childcare
is paid for through state

Infants can ride the bus

bus even stops at the day-
care center to drop children
off, she said.
"We do all that we can to


ensure that our students

Through the 21st centu-

the church's clergy and
other volunteers were pre-
sent Monday for grieving
students.
"A few students keep
asking 'Are you positive
she's not coming back?'"
Davis said. "Sometimes
death is hard to get a hold
of at their age, but for the
most part they are doing
OK. Our teachers are ex-
cellent in explaining
what's going on."
Davis said most of the
students are confused.
"I think after time pass-
es they're going to realize
she's not coming back,"
she said.
Newton was traveling
west on CR 136 when her
car struck the left side of
the semi trailer that was


parked .,c,'I both lanes"
of the road, according to
FHP Cpl. Rodney W.
Howard.
Howard said the semi,
operated by 49-year-old
Leonardo Aponte of Or-
lando, was traveling east
on CR136 when Aponte
stopped and "began to
back in a northwesterly di-
rection across the west-
bound lane." Aponte was
reportedly attempting to
back into a private drive at
18367 CR 136. Howard
said the semi and trailer
were stopped when the
Kia struck the trailer
around 11:04 p.m.
The Kia "slid in a north-
westerly direction down
the left side" of the trailer,
Howard reported. Newton
was pronounced dead at
the scene.
Charges are pending,
FHP reported.

Martin, the pair's sister, was the driver of the vehicle.
She died from injuries sustained in the crash. Funeral ser-
vices were held Monday in Live Oak.

out roughly $4 trillion to the states over
the next 10 years. The greater a state's
population, the greater its share of the
money.
Perhaps more importantly, population
determines the number of representatives
a state has in Congress.
County resident Kamal Gomes said he
doesn't think we'll see our fair share re-
gardless.
"I think it's a good thing but I also
think it's a bad thing because we got a lot
of illegal aliens living here and I doubt
they will all get counted," he said. "I just
don't see it doing us any good."
Cathy Mills said while government
funds are important she doesn't feel com-
fortable with the census.


"I'm a little uneasy about it because the
government is so involved with other
things already," she said.
"It's just me and I don't want to partic-
ipate, so I refuse," said one local woman
who declined to give her name.
Tammy Ogburn said not only will she
participate, she'll encourage others to do
so as well.
"It gives the county more funding for
schools and hospitals. I really think it's
important," she said.
The census is more than just a civic
duty. It's required by the U.S. Constitu-
tion.
Census forms must be returned by
April 1. Those who do not return their
forms by then will receive a knock on
their door from census workers beginning
in May.

duce costs, increase access, ensure pa-

deficit," Boyd said in a statement re-
leased Friday night. "This bill is not per-
fect, but I believe it meets these four prin-


ciples of responsible reform by providing
the largest middle class tax credits for
healthcare in our nation's history and pre-
serving a patient's ability to choose their
own doctor."

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Baseball's best


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
When Major
League baseball was
played mostly in the
east the argument raged who was
best. The names Cobb, Ruth, and
Sisler were tossed about until the
World War II. Then a hero ap-
peared in Boston named Ted
Williams and an Italian kid named
DiMaggio appeared in New York.
The argument persisted until a
couple of guys named Mantle and
Mays showed up.


Mays was certainly faster and
flashier. Mantle was a switch hitter
the likes of which baseball had
never seen. Mickey Mantle played
about every postseason with the
Yankees as Mays' Giants had to
get past the Dodgers. When the
dust cleared Mays was arguably
better but some guy named Aaron
play during the same era and
would make a good argument.
As the next superstar class
emerged there was no doubt Junior
Griffey was the best. Injuries and a
guy named Bonds began to usurp
Griffey of his title. Steroids would
soon taint Bonds' claim. A-Rod

The 2010 season is upon us.
Without doubt the greatest baseball
player today is Albert Pujols. In 9
seasons he has averaged over 40
doubles, 120 runs scored, 120 runs
batted in, 40 homeruns and a bat-
ting average of .334. Pujols a Do-
minican native, is but 30 years old.
He is currently rewriting Stan Mu-
sial's St. Louis records and a few
of the aforementioned. This year
he will have a little help in the line
up and the elusive Triple Crown
will be in his sights.

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.

other district rival,

Suwannee rebound-

"We have been in a
lot of competitive
games, we just
haven't been able to
get the key hits right
together," Suwannee
head coach Tommy
Chambers said. "We
have no seniors on the
team and hopefully
we will finish strong,
the future looks
good."

100 holes of golf



in one day?

All in the name of lending a hand to local youth


Submitted
Six men recently accepted a challenge
by Dr. Ray Kelley, a member of the local
Board of Directors for the Boys & Girls
Club of North Central Florida's Suwannee
County Unit. The challenge of the Boys
& Girls Club of North Central Florida's
Suwannee County Unit's First Annual
Golf-A-Thon was to play 100 holes of
golf in one day.
Though it seemed difficult, everyone
was ready and there was excitement in the
air when they teed off at 7 a.m. at the
Suwannee Country Club. The determined
golfers were Matt Scott, Brandon Fernald,
Jim Munns, Charles Bean, Gary Hazlett
and Ray Kelley from Live Oak, along
with Leroy Kilpatrick, who traveled from
Tallahassee to compete.
The drive behind such determination
was clear; these men want to create a bet-
ter future for the youth of Suwannee
County by supporting the Boys & Girls
Club of North Central Florida's Suwannee
County Branch, an after school and sum-
mer youth development program that
serves students between the ages of 6 and
15 in Suwannee County. Therefore, they
also issued challenges to friends, family
and local businesses to sponsor them in


the Golf-A-Thon. Sponsorships ranged
from $0.05 per hole to $1 per hole played,
along with many general contributions.
The golfer will be a special guest at the
Club's Annual Banquet in April where
awards will be presented for the "Longest
Drive" for two holes, and the "Closest to
the Pin" for two holes.
At the end of the day, Matt Scott, Bran-
don Fernald, Charles Bean and Greg Ha-
zlett each played 100 holes; Ray Kelley
played 103 holes; Leroy Kilpatrick played
113 holes; and Jim Munns played 120
holes. Due to professional obligations,
Hazlett wasn't able to begin his game un-
til after lunch, but he exemplified perse-
verance as he zoomed around the course
and played his 100 holes in only five
hours and one minute.
Businesses that have committed to the
event thus far are Suwannee Country
Club, First Federal Savings Bank, Bi-Lo
Chemical and Supply, Wood Electrical,
Dixie Grill, Mercantile Bank, Dairy
Queen, Jordan Insurance Agency, Taco
Bell, Krystal's, Live Oak Elks Lodge,
Wes Haney Chevrolet, John's Lawn
Equipment and Daniels Funeral Homes

However, the competition isn't over
yet. The golfers will still be seeking to
take the title of "Most Funds Raised" by
continuing to seek supporters until the
4th Annual Banquet to benefit the Boys
& Girls Club of North Central Florida's
Suwannee County Branch on April 24 at
6 p.m. at the Florida National Guard Ar-
mory in Live Oak. This event also
promises to be a success.
Manuel Garcia, General Manager of
Sitel in Lake City, will be the keynote
speaker, with youth from the Suwannee
County Unit performing and serving at


the event. In addition, Erica Scott, Youth
of the Year for the Boys & Girls Club of
North Central Florida, will speak about
the impact that the Club has had on her
life.
Tickets for the 4th Annual Banquet are
currently on sale at the Boys & Girls
Club located at the Douglas Center on
Ontario Avenue, or may be purchased
from any Board Member. Tickets are $20
for adults and youth 13 and older, and
$10 for youth 12 and under. For more in-
formation on the Club, to purchase tickets
to the 4th Annual Banquet, or to pledge
your support of a golfer, please contact
the Suwannee County Unit at 386-330-

TB elimination: Together we can!


l /
By Melissa Garrison
Suwannee County
Health Department
World TB Day is March
24. On that date in 1882, Dr.
Robert Koch announced his
discovery of Mycobacteri-
um tuberculosis, the bacte-
ria that cause tuberculosis.
World TB Day raises
awareness about TB-related
problems and solutions and
to support worldwide TB-
control efforts. In the Unit-
ed States, the theme for
World TB Day 2010 is "TB
elimination: Together We
Can!"
What is tuberculosis?
Tuberculosis is a disease
that usually affects the
lungs. TB sometimes af-
fects other parts of the body,
such as the brain, the kid-
neys, or the spine. TB dis-

How is TB spread?
TB germs are
spread from person
to person through the air.
TB germs are put into the
air when a person with TB
disease of the lungs or
throat coughs, sneezes,
laughs or sings. TB is NOT
spread by sharing silver-
ware or cups, or sharing
saliva when kissing some-
one.
What are the
symptoms of TB?
People with TB disease
often feel weak or sick, lose
weight, have fever and have
night sweats. If their TB
disease is in the lungs, they


NOIL] TB !D"1: 2011P~j


may also cough and have
chest pain, and they might
cough up blood. Other
symptoms depend on what
part of the body is affected.
What is the difference be-
tween TB disease and TB
infection?
People with TB disease
are sick from the large
number of TB germs that
are active in their body.
They usually have one or
more of the symptoms of
TB disease. These people
may pass the TB germs to
others. TB disease can
cause permanent body

damage and death. Medi-
cines that can cure TB dis-
ease are given to these peo-
ple.
People with TB infection
also have the germs that
cause TB in their body, but
they are not sick because
there are not as many of the
germs, and the germs lie
dormant i(,lcpiiii in their
body.
Trends in tuberculosis
How many cases of tu-
berculosis were reported in
the United States in 2008?
In total, 12,904 TB cases
were reported in the United


States in 2008. 953
cases were reported
in Florida alone.
The National TB
rate in 2008 was the lowest
recorded since national re-
porting began in 1953.
Can TB be treated?
If you have TB infection,
you may need medicine to
prevent getting TB disease
later. This is called "pre-
ventive" treatment.
TB disease can also be
treated by taking medicine.
It is very important that
people who have TB dis-
ease finish the medicine,
and take the drugs exactly
as they are told. If they stop
taking the drugs too soon,


they can become sick again.
If they do not take the drugs
correctly, the germs that are
still alive may become dif-
ficult to treat with those
drugs.
It is very important that
you take your medicine as
your doctor recommends. It
takes at least six months to
one year to kill all the TB
germs.
If you have specific ques-
tions about TB, please call

Department 386-362-2708.

The goal of Springfest
sponsors Magnolia Music
& Events is to present
great music festivals that
create and foster an inten-
tional music community.
The festivals are designed
to be enhanced by the
beautiful natural settings at
the Spirit of the Suwannee
Music Park. The best de-
scription of the music is
Americana or Grassroots,
which includes a flavorful,
rich blend of new and tra-
ditional folk, bluegrass,
newgrass, roots rock, alter-
native country,
singer/songwriter, rhythm
and blues, Cajun and
Celtic music plus a few
things that defy descrip-
tion.
Among the great artists
performing will be Peter
Rowan and Jim Laud-
erdale, both Grammy win-
ners. Grammy-award win-
ner and five-time Grammy
nominee Peter Rowan is a
bluegrass singer-songwriter
with a career spanning
more than five decades,
working with bluegrass pa-
triarch Bill Monroe and
Jerry Garcia and as a solo
performer and bandleader
as well. Jim Lauderdale
currently hosts the Jim
Lauderdale Show on
WSM-650 radio weekly
and is a two-time Grammy
winner, winning his first
Grammy in 2002 with Dr.
Ralph Stanley for "Lost in
the Lonesome Pines." He
has also had two other
nominations.
Leftover Salmon formed
in 1989 as the originators
of the "Polyethnic Cajun
Slamgrass" genre, a style
of music that blends blue-
grass, rock, country, blues,
jazz and Cajun/Zydeco.
Leftover Salmon's perfor-
mance will be the first time
the band has played in
Florida since its hiatus at
the end of 2004.

Electric Dirt


Levon Helm, formerly of The Band, wins Grammy


for album that includes Carter Stanley song


Staff
Legendary musician and
rock icon Levon Helm has
won a Grammy for his
second solo record, Elec-
tric Dirt. The record was
named Best Americana
Album of 2009. Notably
for local folks, the record
contains a cover of
"White Dove," a tune by
former Live Oak resident
Carter Stanley of the


world famous Stanley
Brothers.
Electric Dirt again finds
Helm steeped in tradition,
in his connection to the
land and those who live
by it. At the same time, he
paints a broader musical
canvas by incorporating
gospel, blues and soul into
a wide range of original
compositions and eclectic
cover songs.


"Our objective here was
to take the honesty, inno-
cence and purity of the
Dirt Farmer record, which
represents a true element
of what Levon is all
about, but also expand on
that and explore deeper
the gold mine of Levon's
musical artistry," said
Campbell.
Electric Dirt starts with
a rousing rendition of The


Grateful Dead's "Ten-
nessee Jed," moving on to
a beautiful, stripped-down
version of Happy Traum's
"Golden Bird." "Growing
Trade," written by Levon
Helm and Larry Camp-
bell, tells a heartfelt story
of a farmer's struggle to
preserve his livelihood.
The rousing horn arrange-
ments by Allen Toussaint
and the Levon Helm Band


on "Kingfish," written by
Randy Newman, bring the
swagger of New Orleans
to the forefront.
In 2007, after overcom-
ing seemingly insur-
mountable odds, Helm re-
leased Dirt Farmer, his
first solo recording in 25
years, which went on to
win a Grammy for "Best
Traditional Folk Album."
The San Francisco Chron-


icle said, "This album is
nothing less than a return
to form by one of the
most soulful vocalists in
rock history." Rolling
Stone went on further to
hail Levon Helm's Mid-
night Ramble as "2008's
Best Jam Session" and the
same year, Helm received
the "Artist of the Year"
award from the Americana
Music Association.

Cedar Key hosts 'Old Florida' arts fest


By Sandra Bi..l'i..'1, n
If plain old curiosity hasn't yet inspired
you to visit the town selected by the USDA
as Florida's Rural Community of the Year
for 2009, then mark April 24 and 25 on
your calendar for an excursion to the west-
ern terminus of State Route 24. That's
when you'll have the added incentive of
enjoying Cedar Key's annual Old Florida
Celebration of the Arts.
Unlike many art festivals and most craft
fairs, this one is juried to ensure original
artistry and fine craftsmanship. Over a
hundred artists chosen to participate this
year will compete for $10,000 in prize
money and another $10,000 in purchase


awards. The charming and Historic Second
Street will become a pedestrian-only mall
for this weekend event, both sides lined
with booths displaying art and fine crafts
in many different media - oils, acrylics,
prints, jewelry, ceramics, photography,
stained glass, woodwork, sculpture, fiber
and textiles.
A few steps beyond the booths is City
Park, where children will have sidewalk
chalk art, face painting, a playground and
beach. You can listen to music in the park
while lunching on seafood and desserts
prepared and sold by local school, civic
and church organizations. You won't soon
forget the Garden Club's homemade-from-

If you have time for a leisurely visit,
consider arriving a few days early or leav-
ing a few days later. It will give you the
chance to enjoy the quiet charm of Cedar
Key, its waterways, its bird life, its muse-
ums, shops and restaurants. You can walk
or cycle the entire town, photograph mag-
nificent oaks and historic architecture, rent
a kayak, charter a fishing trip, cast a line
from the town dock, go birding, watch in-
credible sunsets, or stay up late stargazing.
During the week you can join one of eight
free yoga classes. Wander through the lo-
cal art galleries or visit the Cedar Key Pot-
tery Studio and see where their signature
flat blue glaze originates. Or bring an easel
and meet up with a group of plein air
artists.
Cedar Key is made up of a chain of
small barrier islands extending three miles
out into the Gulf of Mexico; the currently
inhabited keys are joined by short bridges


(which also make popular fishing spots).
Thirteen other islands make up one of the
oldest National Wildlife Refuges in the
country, providing habitat to vast numbers
of migratory and shore birds. There are
daily boat tours to the island of Atsena
Otie, site of the original settlement and
home to an Eberhard Faber pencil factory,
but devastated by a hurricane at the end of
the 19th century and never rebuilt.
The Old Florida Celebration of the Arts
is easy to find. Take SR 24 (Archer Road)
out of Gainesville and drive southwest to
the end of the road, about 60 miles. You
can also pick up SR24 at Archer, Bronson
or Otter Creek if you are coming from oth-
er directions. Aviation buffs can even fly
here (www.airnav.com/airport/KCDK), as
long as they can land and take off with
about 2000 feet of runway.
For more information contact event co-
ordinator Mandy Cassiano, 352-543-5400,
or the Chamber of Commerce, 352-543-

Gainesville's Lubee Bat Conservancy gets its due


Submitted
The Lubee Bat Conser-
vancy has been granted
certification by the Associ-
ation of Zoos & Aquari-
ums.
Located on a 110-acre
property outside
Gainesville, Lubee Bat
Conservancy houses the
largest and most diverse
collection of tropical Old
World fruit bats (Pteropo-
didae) in the world, and is
recognized as a unique
center dedicated to re-
search, education and con-
servation of these threat-
ened bats. The center hosts
researchers and offers
teaching and informal sci-
ence education opportuni-
ties in partnership with


colleges, universities, zoo-
logical institutions, muse-
ums and others.
"Lubee Bat Conservancy
is one of the best in the
world because it has met
the highest standards in the
world," said AZA Presi-
dent and CEO Jim Maddy.
"It takes hard work and
dedication to meet Associ-
ation of Zoos and Aquari-
ums Standards."
Each year Lubee Bat
Conservancy connects to
the local north central
Florida community
through environmental ed-
ucation programs delivered
to local students, and its

val." Hosted at the center

"batty" event attracted
2,300 visitors in 2009, of-
fering a world class setting
in which to view the real
stars of the night; bats.
This year, Lubee Bat Con-
servancy opens the doors
of its newly certified center
to the public on Nov. 13.
To be certified, Lubee
Bat Conservancy under-
went a thorough investiga-
tion to ensure it has and
will continue to meet ever-
rising standards, which in-
clude animal care, veteri-
nary programs, conserva-
tion, education, and safety.
AZA requires zoos and
aquariums to successfully
complete this rigorous re-
view and inspection every
five years in order to be
members of the Associa-
tion.
"As a member of the As-
sociation of Zoos and
Aquariums, Lubee Bat
Conservancy is a true
leader in wildlife conserva-
tion," Maddy added.
The certification process
includes a detailed applica-
tion and a meticulous on-
site inspection by a team of
trained zoo and aquarium
professionals. The inspect-
ing team observes all as-
pects of the institution's
operation in areas such as
animal care; keeper train-
ing; safety for visitors,
staff, and animals; conser-
vation efforts; veterinary
programs; financial stabili-
ty; risk management; and
other areas. The inspection
team prepares an extensive
written report for the Ac-
creditation Commission.
Finally, top officials are in-
terviewed at a formal
Commission hearing, after
which certification is
granted, tabled, or denied.
Any institution that is de-
nied may reapply one year


after the Commission's de-
cision is made.

servancy Director Allyson

Breast cancer screening means
checking a woman's breasts for cancer
before there are signs or symptoms of
the disease. Three main tests are used
to screen the breasts for cancer. Talk to
your doctor about which tests are right
for you, and when you should have
them.

* Mammogram: The most effective
means to detecting breast cancer, a
mammogram is an X-ray of the breast.
Mammograms can detect breast cancer
early, when it is easier to treat and
before it is big enough to feel or cause
symptoms. Having regular
mammograms can lower the risk of
dying from breast cancer. If you are age
40 years or older, be sure to have a
screening mammogram every one to
two years.

* Clinical breast exam: A clinical breast
exam is an examination by a doctor or
nurse, who uses his or her hands to feel
for lumps or other changes.

* Breast self-exam: A breast self-exam
is when you check your own breasts for
lumps, changes in size or shape of the
breast, or any other changes in the
breasts or underarm (armpit).

Having a clinical breast exam or a
breast self-exam does not decrease risk
of dying from breast cancer. If you
choose to have clinical breast exams
and to perform breast self-exams, be
sure you also get regular
mammograms.

Breast cancer screenings are typically
available at clinics, the local hospital or
a doctor's office. If you want to be
screened for breast cancer, call your
doctor's office. They can help you
schedule an appointment. Most health
insurance companies pay for the cost of
breast cancer screening tests.

prevention and control, visit the

Submitted
A retired career military
guy, Bill Keith always
loved painting, studying
art in high school and later
under various artists during
his military career. Al-
though he dabbled in art
his entire life, he had never
taken on a huge project
such as the one he recently
gave as a gift to the Spirit
of the Suwannee Music
Park. It was all about
friendship and worth the
effort, he relates.
Bill Keith has been mak-
ing nightly trips to the
SOSMP for years, dining
with his good friend,
Charles "Uncle Charles"
Carrithers. When Charles
passed away suddenly last
year, Keith, a widower,
continued to eat at the SOS
Caf6 and Restaurant night-
ly. He became friends with
Charles' sister, Jean Cor-
nett, who with husband
Bob started the Music
Park.
"One day Bill said he
wanted to give me (and the
Music Park) a gift," Jean
Cornett said.
Miss Jean, as she is
called by family, co-work-
ers and friends, said she
didn't know what to make
of the offer to paint a huge
backdrop since she didn't
know Bill was an artist.
Bill soon produced a draw-
ing of his idea for the back-
drop that would cover the
entire back of the Music
Hall stage. "I sat here one
night and made a sketch
and told her she needed
something unique to the
Spirit of the Suwannee
Music Park," Bill said of
his project. After a few re-
visions over the course of
several months, Bill enlist-
ed the help of one of his
buddies, Harry Taylor. The
gift of love was underway.
"I can't sing, so this is
my song," Bill said as he
related the story of his
artistic gift to the Music
Hall where music is made
weekly.
After several weeks
painting the design for the
paddle wheel riverboat


much like those often seen
on the Suwannee River in
the 1800s, there emerged a
paddle wheel boat named
the Spirit of the Suwannee.
Painted on heavy muslin,
the guys worked for nearly
a month, spending 2-3
days a week at the Music
Hall on the largest painting
Bill had ever done. Intri-
cate details can be seen on
the boat such as a memori-
al to Charles, giving him
the honorary title of cap-
tain.
"I came to the Spirit of
the Suwannee Park be-
cause of the SOS Caf6 and
Restaurant, it was close to
where I live, and this is
where I met Charles," Bill
said of his friendship with
Charles. "We had a lot in
common and became
friends," he said.
Bill, now "73 years
young" and a chess player
who also likes to sculpt
wood, did a lot of measur-
ing to put the project into
perspective, all the while
moving forward with
what turned out to be a
magnificent backdrop
perfect for the stage of a
music hall located on the
banks of the famous
Suwannee River.
"I'm a retired sailor, and
I've painted enough
ships," Bill laughed, sug-
gesting he put the big job
of painting the large paddle
wheel boat off on Harry.
After all, retiring as a
chief after 20 years in the
Navy does give a man
some advantage in the
pecking order.
Harry, a regular at
karaoke nights in the Mu-
sic Hall, had a big part in
the project and he, too,
worked long and hard to
make the backdrop the
perfect gift. His friends
and family were on hand
for the unveiling and re-
ception for he and Bill,
crowning them both with
"arteest hats," otherwise
known as berets.
Both men were present-
ed with a certificate of ap-

Newton was a teacher's aide for first and second grade at the academy, Principal Amanda Davis said. She was known by her students as "Meme."

Even though your house may have less trim than siding, painting the trim may take just as long to complete. Take your time and your newly painted house is bound to be the best looking home on the block. We recommend a semi-gloss or gloss finish helps to set off the flat color used on the siding. Also this type finish tends to be more durable. Scrape any loose paint from the trim. Caulk windows as needed. Make sure the caulking is dry before painting over it. You may need to give the windowsills an extra coat of paint. Open the windows enough so that the paint doesn't dry them shut permanently. Paint inset panels first, then paint the outer trim. For more information see your paint professionals at Live Oak Paint & Flooring.I would like to paint the trim on my house, can you give me some pointers?

This condition is characterized by thickened secretions that come from the lungs, pancreas, intestines, and other major organs. Respiratory symptoms include a persistent cough, difficulty breathing, and chronic bronchitis. Staphylococcus aur eus, haemophilus influenza, and pseudomonas aeruginosa are bacteria that likely live in the airway of a person with cystic fibrosis. Antibiotics are used to treat respiratory episodes in persons with cystic fibrosis. They are usually prescribed to be taken by mouth for several weeks for a mild episode caused by methicillin sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA). The list of antibiotics commonly prescribed include dicloxacillin, amoxicillin-clavulanate ( Augmentin ), cephalexin ( Keflex ), trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole ( Bactrim, Septra ), and doxycycline ( Adoxa, Doryx ). For methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin or linezolid may be prescribed. Tobramycin ( TOBI ), an aminoglycoside antibiotic, or colistin are antibiotics given by inhalation for those infected with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Severe cases may require ceftazidime ( Fortaz ), cefepime ( Maxipime ), aztreonam ( Azactam ), tobramycin, or amikacin. by Kathy Fletcher, PharmDDrive-up window Model Name and Comfort Level Queen set$000 REG.

The race was founded by Donna Deegan three years ago and is the only marathon in the country dedicated solely to that purpose. More than 7,500 participated and the local group took advantage of a new provision that allows a relay team to split the 26.2-mile marathon into five legs. These participants believe this is the perfect race to prepare for Relay for Life (coming soon to Live Oak), which promotes awareness of cancer, helps fund research and raises money toward a cure.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Odd Even U U new new Odd EvenU U new new WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24, 2010 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 6ANorth FloridaBy Jim Holmes Thanks to a broken leg and ankle, I've had a lot of new experiences in recent weeks ... many of which I would have done without, given the choice. I guess, at the top of the list would be getting a shower. Mind you, I love the actual shower part, which is made possible only because today's physicians put many patients in removable plastic casts. (If you haven't seen them, they favor the knee-high boots worn by the storm troopers in the Star Wars movies.) Had I been encased in one of the old fashioned plaster casts Ñ the norm in bygone days Ñ I would have been precluded from getting anything but sponge baths during my eight-week recovery. Everything comes with a trade-off, however. Thanks to the availability of these new casts, my caregiver wife has been forced to watch over an old, fat man as he hops on his remaining good leg to get in and out of the shower. Without going into any graphic detail, I'll just say the process is not graceful. In fact, it only can be accomplished by completely surrendering one's dignity. On the other hand, I'm sure we could win the $100,000 grand prize offered by America's Funniest Home Videos, if I would just allow my wife to record it. (And with today's medical costs, that may yet become an option.) Showering in my current state also has clearly demonstrated to me that the United States does not have to use "water boarding" to get terrorists to confess. They just need a small, tiled enclosure equipped with a shower stool. Plant your bare bottom on that device on a nippy North Florida morning and I guarantee you'll answer any question put to you, no matter how self-incriminating! Then there is the cabin fever that goes with a broken leg. In my case, I was in enough discomfort the first five weeks that I had no interest in going anywhere. By week six, however, things had changed. Lynda finally agreed to take me shopping with her at Wal-Mart after she found my nose prints all over the window on our front storm door. I can't believe how excited I was about the prospect of the outing. You would have thought I was taking a luxury cruise of the Greek Islands rather than just spending an hour or so picking up a few groceries. Once we arrived at the store, I was assigned one of those nifty motorized shopping carts the chain retailers all have these days. I thought this was just great, until I realized that I was now one of 12 or 15 old coots tooling up and down WalMart's aisles. You might call it "The Live Oak 500 for Seniors!" On second thought, maybe it should be called the "Old Coot Demolition Derby." After all, based on what the baskets look like on those shopping scooters, clearly most have been operated at one time or another at ramming speed. I guess being a neophyte driver only qualified me to use the slowest cart in the store. I didn't mind as I was in no hurry to get home. Apparently, however, many of my senior peers have better things to do with their lives. Several seemed to give me dirty looks as they sped around me and I think one old gal actually mulled-over the idea of gracing me with a onefingered salute for delaying her mad dash to the produce department. Overall, however, my first motorized shopping trip went well. There was one slight mishap. On Aisle 22, I ran over and broke a bottle of beer. But I don't think I should be held responsible for that. After all, the guy had it in his hip pocket!

Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. Ephesians 6:10-11 If there is anything good to say about Democrat control of the White House, Senate and House of Representatives, it's that their extraordinarily brazen, heavyhanded acts have aroused a level of constitutional interest among the American people that has been dormant for far too long. Part of this heightened interest is seen in the strength of the tea party movement around the nation. Another is the angry reception that many congressmen received at their district town hall meetings. Yet another is seen by the exchanges on the nation's most popular radio talk shows such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and others. Then there's the rising popularity of conservative/libertarian television shows such as Glenn Beck, John Stossel and Fox News. While the odds on favorite is that the Republicans will do well in the fall elections, Americans who want constitutional government should not see Republican control as a solution to what our founders would have called "a long train of abuses and usurpations." Solutions to our nation's problems require correct diagnostics and answers to questions like: Why did 2008 presidential and congressional candidates spend over $5 billion campaigning for office? Why did special interests pay Washington lobbyists over $3 billion that same year? What are reasons why corporations, unions and other interest groups fork over these billions of dollars to lobbyists and into the campaign coffers of politicians? One might say that these groups are simply extraordinarily civic-minded Americans who have a deep and abiding interest in elected officials living up to their oath of office to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution. Another response is these politicians, and the people who spend billions of dollars on them, just love participating in the political process. If you believe either of these explanations, you're probably a candidate for some medicine, a straitjacket and a padded cell. Afar better explanation for the billions going to the campaign coffers of Washington politicians and lobbyist lies in the awesome government power and control over business, property, employment and other areas of our lives. Having such power, Washington politicians are in the position to grant favors and commit acts that if committed by a private person would land him in jail. Here's one among thousands of examples: Incandescent light bulbs are far more convenient and less expensive than compact fluorescent bulbs (CFL) that General Electric now produces. So how can General Electric sell its costly CFLs? They know that Congress has the power to outlaw incandescent light bulbs. General Electric was the prominent lobbyist for outlawing incandescent light bulbs and in 2008 had a $20 million lobbying budget. Also, it should come as no surprise that General Electric is a contributor to global warmers who help convince Congress that incandescent bulbs were destroying the planet. The greater Congress'ability to grant favors and take one American's earnings to give to another American, the greater the value of influencing congressional decisionmaking. There's no better influence than money. The generic favor sought is to get Congress, under one ruse or another, to grant a privilege or right to one group of Americans that will be denied another group of Americans. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi covering up for a corrupt Ways and Means Committee Chairman, Charles Rangel, said that while his behavior "was a violation of the rules of the House. It was not something that jeopardized our country in any way." Pelosi is right in minimizing Rangel's corruption. It pales in comparison, in terms of harm to our nation, to the legalized corruption that's a part of Washington's daily dealing. Hopefully, our nation's constitutional reawaking will begin to deliver us from the precipice. There is no constitutional authority for two-thirds to three-quarters of what Congress does. Our constitution's father, James Madison, explained, "The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government, are few and defined ... (to be) exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce." Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University.

For some reason, I have never issued a similar warning at the onset of turkey season, which is now upon us. It could be because I've yet to hear of anyone being mistaken for a turkey , which I think is iron ic given that we probably have more turkey resemblance out there than we do deer look-a-likes. What I mean is, I would think that during spring gobbler season we would lose at least two politicians for the obvious reasons and perhaps one Indian chief, also for the obvious reason. I'm not a turkey hunter but I did bag one big gobbler when I was a teen-ager . I was squirrel hunting on the coldest day of the year when I happened upon a gobbler . I shot it and very proud ly took it home. Then I very humbly dressed it all by my self in 18-degree weather . The whole time I was thinking that for just a few bucks I could have bought a turkey al ready dressed at the grocery store ... a warm grocery store. Now in bringing up this subject, I hope I have not jinxed the whole matter by saying that so far I haven' t heard of anyone mistaking someone for a turkey and shooting him. I've watched lots of football where an announcer brags about how a quarterback hasn' t thrown an interception in five straight games and on the very next play he gives it up. Actually, I really don't believe in jinxing stuff although as kids we used to try it while shooting marbles. We would wave our hands and yell "monkey dust!" just before an opponent shot. I have no idea what "monkey dust" is unless it has something to do with an orangutan dipping snuff. It was just handed down by marble shooters before us, and we never questioned it. I think maybe fewer people turkey hunt than deer hunt which aids the safety issue. As well, I think it takes much greater skill and knowledge to hunt turkey than to hunt deer, thus maybe a greater level of intelligence when combined with a deadly weapon makes for a better outcome. Just a hunch. As well, turkey hunters use shotguns instead of rifles so the range of the weapon is much less, minimizing the chance of carnage on an errant shot. The turkey has to be closer than a deer for a kill shot. So that proximity would decrease the chances of a politician, an Indian chief or a Yankee Doodle with a feather stuck in his hat being mistaken as turkeys. By the way, why did old Doodle call his feather macaroni? I don'see any resemblance. And because I didn't do the best job of dressing that turkey, I know that a feather taste nothing like a noodle. So, maybe this tendency of mistaken identity in the wild has its founding in our forefathers'melodic essays. Or maybe there's no correlation ... after all, this guy Doodle was a Yankee. Whatever, I would be remiss not to remind those who go for the gobble to be very careful. Even if you hear a gobble, don't shoot until you can positively identify it's the right bird. Remember that it is an election year and there are some people out there who can sound and act much like turkeys. (Dwain Walden is editor/publisher of The Moultrie Observer,229-985-4545.

Ten Protestant and Catholic churches with all ages but primarily teens and young adults, gathered to Walk for Water around the church square followed by a delicious potluck supper. Volunteer Director for Persecution Project, Carol Hudgins, gave her program two weeks earlier and then participants went out and gathered sponsors for a new well in Darfur, Sudan. This region has seen ongoing persecution of Christians. Many Muslims are also being forced off their ancestral lands by the Khartoum government and are grateful and inquisitive as to why Christians a half a world away are helping them in their distress where hundreds of thousands are being stranded in the desert with no source of clean water. All the walkers worked hard and a total of $7,588 was raised from the generous sponsors! This will pay for half a well, which will be matched by donors in other states. In addition to the wells, Persecution Project brings in food, medicine, grains, Bibles, the Jesus film, and solar power radios for those illiterate. They also build orphanages and schools. Their motto is "Do what you can, where you are, with what you have!" What a difference a group of young people have had on their world! Congratulations to all walkers! By Ana Smith Well, if you followed the news over the weekend, and I'm sure most of you did, we've had that healthcare plan shoved down our throats, despite the fact that most citizens have protested it loudly and fervently. While some of it may be of benefit, the idea that government demands we carry the insurance they provide or we'll be penalized grates at my nerves, as well as all the other dictates and invasions into my personal life that have nothing to do with my health; it is just not acceptable. I, for one, will be out there, doing whatever I can to protest not only this terrible bill but also those who voted for it. And watching the proceedings on TVmost of yesterday (Sunday) proved to me just how arrogant and how self-serving so many in Congress have become. If any of them had to live by the same rules they hand out to us, I wonder how many would have still voted yes???? It must be a powerful feeling to make laws that they don't have to abide by!! Enough said ... at least for now! Have you had enough of the cold weather yet? I sure have! But at least I got a lot of outside work done those days in which it was sunny and warm. Lord, please return the sunshine to Florida, so we can call ourselves the "Sunshine State" again. It was such a delight to wake up to the sun coming in the windows early in the morning, and sitting out on the front porch in the sunshine. My sincere sympathies go to Mona Hurst, Marcia Hurst and Diane WalkerSaunders in the passing of their sister, Faye, last week. This family has been good friends to my son, Grady, and his wife, Lori, for several years, and I know the "going home" of their sister will leave a hole in their hearts. It's "Spring Break" for our children next week, so check out the "Calendar" section of this newspaper for events that will be going on. The Suwannee County Fair is scheduled for the first week in April, and Easter is almost here. And there is plenty of activity at the Spirit of the Suwannee the next few weekends. This coming Sunday is Palm Sunday, and if you don't have a church home yet, please come and join us at O'Brien Baptist Church for Sunday School Sunday morning at 10 a.m., followed by morning worship at 11 a.m. and evening service at 6 p.m. No matter what your denomination preference, there is a church waiting to welcome you in. You don't need fancy "church clothes" to come worship our Lord, just a willing and an open heart. HE will take care of the rest! If you have a daughter interested in Girl Scouts, Troop 130 meets at O'Brien Baptist Church the 2nd and 4th Saturdays in our fellowship hall. Next meeting is this Saturday. Call the church office at 935-1503 for more information. From "Life's Little Instruction Book": "Don't confuse mere inconveniences with real problems." "Show extra respect for people whose jobs put dirt under their fingernails." "Remember that a good example is the Submitted On Palm Sunday, March 28, Laramie Bertolino and Patty Gianeskis will team up to present a medley of sacred music during the 10:50 a.m. morning worship hour at McAlpin Advent Christian Church. Accompanied by Mrs. Bertolino, Mrs. Gianeskis will sing, "The Lord is My Shepherd" and "Too High a Price." Worship will conclude with a benediction of hymns, including, "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus." Palms will be distributed as people leave the service. "I will be using the gospel scriptural text found in Mark chapter 11 and relating it to the church being the only institution that exists primarily for the needs of those not yet members," said Pastor Paul Bertolino. "The church, like the lifeboats on the Titanic, has plenty of room for others. Tragically, on the Titanic, only 700 out of the 2223 passengers survived. We, as a church, will do all we can to get others aboard." On April 1 at 6:30 p.m., Pastors Paul Bertolino and Dr. David Dean will officiate at a Maundy Thursday communion service. Easter Sunday will be celebrated on April 4. Dr. Dean's book, Resurrection Hope, will be given to every visitor. Every Sunday includes a Christian Education hour at 9:45 a.m. for all ages. The church is located at 17214 89th Road.

A: In the normal healthy mouth, teeth support one another. The loss of a tooth can come from a sudden trauma, or from neglect, letting a tooth decay to the point of crumbling or ignoring gum disease that can eventually destroy a tooth's support system. If you lose a permanent tooth, you should see a dentist as soon as possible. Once one tooth is gone, the teeth adjacent to it will begin to shift and loosen. The end result, over time, is a domino effect of lost teeth. Not only will missing teeth put a serious dent in your smile, they may hamper your ability to speak and chew. Depending on the circumstances, your dentist may be able to correct your situation with a crown, if part of the tooth is left, or a bridge. The bridge is an appliance that would be anchored on the neighboring teeth and would fill the spot where the tooth has been lost. Another option is an implant, which involves the installation of a metal post in your jaw that would anchor an ar tificial tooth. Not everyone, however, is a candidate for an implant. There must be sufficient jawbone for the procedure to be feasible. Visit your dentist at least twice a year and tooth loss will most likely not be a problem.Presented as a service to the community by 571101-FASK DR. MANTOOTH362-6556 (800) 829-6506HERBERT C. MANTOOTH, D.D.S., P.A.602 Railroad Ave. Live Oak, FL EFFECTS OF A LOST TOOTH By Cody Webb It's good to see that in this new multiplayer-focused gaming world of ours, that a good story and single-player component haven't been pushed aside. Metro 2033 has done a good job of bringing story back to the spotlight by foregoing multiplayer to focus on crafting an engaging narrative. Unfortunately for PS3 gamers, Metro is only available for the Xbox 360 and Windows PC. Most gamers most likely won't know anything about Metro 2033, but that's OK, let me give you a little backstory: it's based on the tale of a Russian book under the same title. The narrative follows a man named Artyom, who was born in Moscow before a nuclear disaster that resulted in the surface becoming uninhabitable. Humanity has been forced to live in the underground Metro tunnels and stations, living a dark and depressing life of scavenging and fighting mutants to survive. Metro's best and most obvious achievement would be the atmosphere of despair and dread that the game nails perfectly. The many underground areas are dark and moody, filled with sounds of unknown origins and the threat of monsters in every shadow. It's not all horror, however, whenever you happen upon one of the many human settlements in the Metro stations, you can get a sense of hope or oppression. The stations are cramped with people chatting away with each other, giving the illusion that you are trying to edge your way through a crowd of living people. Further adding to the game's atmosphere would be the developer's smart choice to leave the game mostly HUD-less. This allows a nice, uncluttered view of the destroyed tunnels and mutated creatures that you'll find yourself encountering. Amount of damage and direction of attacks are shown as blood splatters and bloodied vision; though there is a more traditional ammo counter that appears when you use a weapon. Being without a HUD gets challenging when you surface out of the underground and into the ruins of Moscow. Remember what I said about the surface being uninhabited? Well, the 20 years between the disasterGAMETIMEand when Artyom ventures out into it haven't improved the conditions any. Anyone who goes out into the ruins has to wear a gas mask, and since there isn't a HUD: players are required to check a wristwatch to keep track of how much time they have left in their filter. Unless you want to choke on the irradiated air and keel over dead, that is. Metro does a great job of making you feel like a scavenger: whenever you kill a human enemy, you can (and should) loot any ammo visible on their bodies, plus whatever is in their gun. Your mask can get damaged and rendered useless, at which point you'll have to find yourself a new one. The weapons you will find and use are, mostly, modern weapons with homemade attachments or improvements. The gunplay should make any shooter fan happy: the combat is tight and shots are as accurate as you are. Aiming and firing in bursts makes a difference, plus some guns can be outfitted with a scope to help make long-range shots easier. It's unfortunate that the knife isn't a one-hit kill, since it's one of the few melee weapons you get (the other is a bayonet you can get on a couple of weapons). If you'd prefer to not blast your way through enemies, Metro does give you the option to be stealthy. On your watch is three little lights, each indicating how visible you are. You can effectively hide from enemies and put them out one by one with silenced weapons or throwing knives. However, due to some quirks in the A.I., the enemies will sometimes find you without you having done anything. So in the end, what is Metro 2033? It's a magnificent story told through excellent (usually) first-person cut scenes and a moody atmosphere, but it does have a couple of nagging little issues. They aren't gamebreakers, however, and shouldn't prevent anyone from checking out this game. I'll give Metro 2033 an A; the book has a sequel, so does that mean we can look forward to one as well? I hope so! Cody Webb lives in Live Oak. Metro 2033

People traveled from as far away as Ohio to participate in what has become one of Live Oak's most entertaining events and to help raise almost $13,000 to support individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities from the local area. With good weather behind their backs, race announcers Wayne Littrell, Debbie Murray and Dennis Nixon kept the huge crowd charged up as the racers made their way around the course. Each rider used a new mower, provided by John's Lawn Equipment in Live Oak, and for some of them it was an intimidating experience. The crowd had as much fun watching the riders hanging on as they leaped off the starting line as they did in watching the race itself. To make this year's event more interesting, each individual or team rider was required to stop at seven different Ôpit stops'around the track and complete an amusing task assigned by the Stop sponsor. When all the laps were completed and the pit stops made, Jason Jenkins, driving for Mike's Pump Repair, took home first place in the individual competition and the members of the Arc of Florida took home first place in the team category. The team Hannah's Homies was the top money raiser for the event, bringing in contributions of over $1,600. "At the end of the day, the real winners will be the clients from CCS since all the money we raised will be used to provide services for them" said CCS Executive Director Bobbie Lake. Added Debbie Lee, CCS's program director, who helped orchestrate the event, "We really want to thank the people from the community and our business partners who turned out in full force with their support and sponsorships."

In September, Chapter President Mallory Morgan and 8th Grade Vice President Harli Feeney attended the Chapter President's Conference in Daytona Beach, to hone their leadership skills. Also in September, several Chapter Officers attended COLT(Chapter Officer Leadership Training) at Lake City Community College. Students learned about tolerance, how to effectively communicate with others and how to recruit new members. SMAFFAhas also been raising money for their yearly awards banquet, which will be held in May. Officers and members in a joint effort with SMS Art club worked in the concession stand from September through January. They were present at SMS football and soccer games. Thankyou to the members who helped at the games preparing, selling and serving snacks and drinks. On Oct. 8, students competed in the District forestry contest at Lake City Community College. This was the first time some of these students competed in this event. They studied hard learning the tools used in forestry, identifying trees and insects, learning how to estimate timber volume, along with compass and pacing. SMS had three teams enter this event. In October FFAsweethearts participated in the SHS Homecoming parade.

The FFAMiddle School Conference was held in December at the FFALeadership Training Center. Chapter officers attended the conference. They gained leadership knowledge, how to work more closely with members and enhanced their planning skills. During November SMS FFAheld a jacket drive. Members donated their outgrown jackets. By cleaning out their closets they collected around 100 jackets. These jackets were donated to needy families in Suwannee County. These jackets had quite a bit of good use left in them and were just in time for the cold weather. SMS faculty and staff also participated. Thank you to everyone who participated. You may have seen the FFAofficers and members at Christmas on the Square. They helped locally owned Shenandoah Dairy with their live calf exhibit. Officers and members tended to the calves in the pen. They also assisted children and adults who wished to pet and feed the calves. Bottles of warm milk were made to feed to the calves. They also made sure the calves did not get out of the pen. Everyone was asked to use hand sanitizer and dry their hands. Coloring books telling about how the calves are cared for on the farm and the milking process were also handed out to the children. Additional photos,Page 14A. SEESMS,PAGE19A

Howard said the semi, operated by 49-year-old Leonardo Aponte of Orlando, was traveling east on CR136 when Aponte stopped and "began to back in a northwesterly direction across the westbound lane." Aponte was reportedly attempting to back into a private drive at 18367 CR 136. Howard said the semi and trailer were stopped when the Kia struck the trailer around 11:04 p.m. The Kia "slid in a northwesterly direction down the left side" of the trailer, Howard reported. Newton was pronounced dead at the scene. Charges are pending, FHPreported. Continued From Page 1A In Suwannee, the teen pregnancy rate is 17.8 percent, well above the state average of 10.7 percent, according to the Florida Department of Health (FDOH). "The figures include teenagers ages 13 to 19," Cody said, "we're talking middle school and high school." The Suwannee County School Board has adopted a district-wide abstinence stance on the issue. However, that doesn't hide the fact that many teens are having sex and oftentimes becoming pregnant. Margaret Wooley, health and food services coordinator for the district, said, "the only type of regular sex education curriculum is being taught in the 9th grade, at both Suwannee and Branford High." Grant funds for a strategic abstinence program were cut two years ago, she said. "Both Principal (Dawn) Lamb and Principal (Ted) Roush thought it was important enough that they kept the sex education course as part of their schools'regular curriculum." In addition, the district maintains a teenage parent program, which identifies pregnant teens, contacts their guardians, assigns students mentors and provides post-birth daycare services. Kathy Sellgren, a nurse at SHS, said teen pregnancy is more than just a Suwannee County problem. "There is a need on a societal level to readdress this problem; it's societal, not just a school problem," she said. Each Wednesday, through a partnership with the health department and school system, Cody arrives at SHS to meet with pregnant teenage students, said Sellgren, who acts as liaison. "There's anywhere from about 1-4 teenage girls a week, and sometimes they come with their significant others, to meet in a conference room or designated area on campus," she said. Similarly, Cody meets with BHS teens twice a month on Thursdays, she said. Pregnant students who arrive for the meetings are offered Healthy Start ser-Local numbers are nearly twice the state averageContinued From Page 1A vices through the health department. Healthy Start, which has been in effect since 1991, offers prenatal risk screening for moms and babies. The program also offers home visits by nurses and social workers, information about pregnancy and baby care, education about healthy pregnancies, help quitting smoking, childbirth classes, parenting education and support, health education (family planning, woman's health, nutrition and exercise), along with counseling services, according to FDOH. "It gives them a way to seek the care they need," Sellgren said. "We strongly advocate that students disclose their pregnancy information to their parents if they have not done so. Most times parents find out before I do," she said. The number of teenage pregnancies in Suwannee may appear unusually high because "we are a closeknit community. Often friends of students go out of their way to alert me of a pregnancy," she said. "That happens a lot." Damon Wooley, who teaches 9th-12th grade health at SHS said topics covered in his class include conception, birth and sexually transmitted diseases or STDs. "I teach straight from the text that the only 100 percent certain way to know that you won't contract an STD or become pregnant is abstinence Ñ which not only addresses sexual intercourse, but also oral sex," he said. "In no way, shape or fashion do I condone or promote sexual activity. However, if a kid does ask me I'm going to try and advise them on the risks involved. Wooley said by law, the school cannot distribute condoms or other contraceptive devices. "But if a kid asks, I'm going to refer them to the health department, a pharmacy and tell them they need to discuss it with their parents." He said in the 10 years he's taught health and sex education at SHS he has seen that "most kids do not feel comfortable discussing this information with their parents. My students have questions that you can't even print, and most people if they sat in my class would blush and parents would probably faint." Wooley said he has never had a student approach him who found out that they were pregnant. However, he said, many have approached him thinking they may have contracted an STD. Nurse Sellgren admitted the exact number of pregnant students within the district may not be known because not all students receive their care through the health department. "Alot of kids are getting private care; We aren't the only avenue for them to get the care," she said. The teenage parent program remains the district's best effort at keeping teenage parents in school, said Elizabeth Simpson, director of student services. "We provide and pay for daycare services so that we can keep that teenage parent in school. The childcare is paid for through state provided funds," she said. Infants can ride the bus with their parent, and the bus even stops at the daycare center to drop children off, she said. "We do all that we can to ensure that our students continue their education." Through the 21st century program, teenage parents are taught infant and child CPR and development with an emphasis on parenting. "Our goal, with our high dropout rate, is to ensure that all of our school children get an education. We do whatever it takes." to the right and struck a concrete curb, according to FHP.

"I think it's a good thing but I also think it's a bad thing because we got a lot of illegal aliens living here and I doubt they will all get counted," he said. "I just don't see it doing us any good." Cathy Mills said while government funds are important she doesn't feel comfortable with the census. "I'm a little uneasy about it because the government is so involved with other things already," she said. "It's just me and I don't want to participate, so I refuse," said one local woman who declined to give her name. Tammy Ogburn said not only will she participate, she'll encourage others to do so as well. "It gives the county more funding for schools and hospitals. I really think it's important," she said. The census is more than just a civic duty. It's required by the U.S. Constitution. Census forms must be returned by April 1.

The Bulldogs jumped out early with six runs in the first inning as all nine batters came to the plate in the first inning alone. After that the Bulldogs scored three runs in the remaining five innings that they came to the plate. Highlighted was the homerun by Blake Swann when he blasted a curve ball over the left centerfield wall. All but two of Suwannee's starters had a hit, no Bulldogs had multiple hits. The game scheduled for Thursday March 18 against Union County was postponned after Union County's principal passed away theSHS baseball rolls Tornadoes When Major League baseball was played mostly in the east the argument raged who was best. The names Cobb, Ruth, and Sisler were tossed about until the World War II. Then a hero appeared in Boston named Ted Williams and an Italian kid named DiMaggio appeared in New York. The argument persisted until a couple of guys named Mantle and Mays showed up. Mays was certainly faster and flashier. Mantle was a switch hitter the likes of which baseball had never seen. Mickey Mantle played about every postseason with the Yankees as Mays'Giants had to get past the Dodgers. When the dust cleared Mays was arguably better but some guy named Aaron play during the same era and would make a good argument. As the next superstar class emerged there was no doubt Junior Griffey was the best. Injuries and a guy named Bonds began to usurp Griffey of his title. Steroids would soon taint Bonds'claim. A-Rod was waiting to claim the title but once again drug enhancing drugs served as an asterisk to his records. The 2010 season is upon us. Without doubt the greatest baseball player today is Albert Pujols. In 9 seasons he has averaged over 40 doubles, 120 runs scored, 120 runs batted in, 40 homeruns and a batting average of .334. Pujols a Dominican native, is but 30 years old. He is currently rewriting Stan Musial's St. Louis records and a few of the aforementioned. This year he will have a little help in the line up and the elusive Triple Crown will be in his sights.

The late rally momentum carried the team to a second place finish in the Santa Fe Tournament March 12-13 in Alachua. Suwannee knocked off district rival Williston 16-4 in the opening game. A month ago, Williston held off Suwannee 43 in the District 5-3A opener, payback was probably on the Bulldogs mind. Tinsley Smith, who went 2for-3 and scored 3 runs paced the Bulldogs in the win. In game two, Suwannee pounded Blufton , SC 11-1 behind Tenbroeck (3for-5) and Smith (3for-4, 3 RBIs). In the semi-finals, Suwannee routed Buchholz 11-1 behind Tenbroeck (3-for-5, 3 runs) and Marshanna Boyette (3-for-4, 2 RBIs). In the championship game, Suwannee met Santa Fe another district rival, falling 6-0. Maegan Olson went 2-for-3, including getting 2 of the four hits in the game. Suwannee rebounded to knock off Newberry 2-0 March 16 at home. Brittany Shearer went 3-for-3 to pace the Bulldogs. "We have been in a lot of competitive games, we just haven't been able to get the key hits right together," Suwannee head coach Tommy Chambers said. "We have no seniors on the team and hopefully we will finish strong, the future looks good." Suwannee (6-5, 24) traveled to Hamilton County March 18 and hosted Williston March 19 in another District 5-3Agame.

The challenge of the Boys & Girls Club of North Central Florida's Suwannee County Unit's First Annual Golf-A-Thon was to play 100 holes of golf in one day. Though it seemed difficult, everyone was ready and there was excitement in the air when they teed off at 7 a.m. at the Suwannee Country Club. The determined golfers were Matt Scott, Brandon Fernald, Jim Munns, Charles Bean, Gary Hazlett and Ray Kelley from Live Oak, along with Leroy Kilpatrick, who traveled from Tallahassee to compete. The drive behind such determination was clear; these men want to create a better future for the youth of Suwannee County by supporting the Boys & Girls Club of North Central Florida's Suwannee County Branch, an after school and summer youth development program that serves students between the ages of 6 and 15 in Suwannee County. Therefore, they also issued challenges to friends, family and local businesses to sponsor them in the Golf-A-Thon. Sponsorships ranged from $0.05 per hole to $1 per hole played, along with many general contributions. The golfer will be a special guest at the Club's Annual Banquet in April where awards will be presented for the "Longest Drive" for two holes, and the "Closest to the Pin" for two holes. At the end of the day, Matt Scott, Brandon Fernald, Charles Bean and Greg Hazlett each played 100 holes; Ray Kelley played 103 holes; Leroy Kilpatrick played 113 holes; and Jim Munns played 120 holes. Due to professional obligations, Hazlett wasn't able to begin his game until after lunch, but he exemplified perseverance as he zoomed around the course and played his 100 holes in only five hours and one minute. Businesses that have committed to the event thus far are Suwannee Country Club, First Federal Savings Bank, Bi-Lo Chemical and Supply, Wood Electrical, Dixie Grill, Mercantile Bank, Dairy Queen, Jordan Insurance Agency, Taco Bell, Krystal's, Live Oak Elks Lodge, Wes Haney Chevrolet, John's Lawn Equipment and Daniels Funeral Homes Charles Bean and Jim Munns.

On that date in 1882, Dr. Robert Koch announced his discovery of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacteria that cause tuberculosis. World TB Day raises awareness about TB-related problems and solutions and to support worldwide TBcontrol efforts. In the United States, the theme for World TB Day 2010 is "TB elimination: Together We Can!" What is tuberculosis? Tuberculosis is a disease that usually affects the lungs. TB sometimes affects other parts of the body, such as the brain, the kidneys, or the spine. TB disease can cause death if un-NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPT.treated. How is TB spread? TB germs are spread from person to person through the air. TB germs are put into the air when a person with TB disease of the lungs or throat coughs, sneezes, laughs or sings. TB is NOT spread by sharing silverware or cups, or sharing saliva when kissing someone. What are the symptoms of TB? People with TB disease often feel weak or sick, lose weight, have fever and have night sweats. If their TB disease is in the lungs, they may also cough and have chest pain, and they might cough up blood. Other symptoms depend on what part of the body is affected. What is the difference between TB disease and TB infection? People with TB disease are sick from the large number of TB germs that are active in their body. They usually have one or more of the symptoms of TB disease. These people may pass the TB germs to others. TB disease can cause permanent body damage and death. Medicines that can cure TB disease are given to these people. People with TB infection also have the germs that cause TB in their body, but they are not sick because there are not as many of the germs, and the germs lie dormant (sleeping) in their body. Trends in tuberculosis How many cases of tuberculosis were reported in the United States in 2008? In total, 12,904 TB cases were reported in the United States in 2008. 953 cases were reported in Florida alone. The National TB rate in 2008 was the lowest recorded since national reporting began in 1953. Can TB be treated? If you have TB infection, you may need medicine to prevent getting TB disease later. This is called "preventive" treatment. TB disease can also be treated by taking medicine. It is very important that people who have TB disease finish the medicine, and take the drugs exactly as they are told. If they stop taking the drugs too soon, they can become sick again. If they do not take the drugs correctly, the germs that are still alive may become difficult to treat with those drugs. It is very important that you take your medicine as your doctor recommends. It takes at least six months to one year to kill all the TB germs. If you have specific questions about TB, please call Melissa Garrison, R.N. the Suwannee County Health Department 386-362-2708.

Bring your fold up chairs! The goal of Springfest sponsors Magnolia Music & Events is to present great music festivals that create and foster an intentional music community. The festivals are designed to be enhanced by the beautiful natural settings at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. The best description of the music is Americana or Grassroots, which includes a flavorful, rich blend of new and traditional folk, bluegrass, newgrass, roots rock, alternative country, singer/songwriter, rhythm and blues, Cajun and Celtic music plus a few things that defy description. Among the great artists performing will be Peter Rowan and Jim Lauderdale, both Grammy winners. Grammy-award winner and five-time Grammy nominee Peter Rowan is a bluegrass singer-songwriter with a career spanning more than five decades, working with bluegrass patriarch Bill Monroe and Jerry Garcia and as a solo performer and bandleader as well. Jim Lauderdale currently hosts the Jim Lauderdale Show on WSM-650 radio weekly and is a two-time Grammy winner, winning his first Grammy in 2002 with Dr. Ralph Stanley for "Lost in the Lonesome Pines." He has also had two other nominations. Leftover Salmon formed in 1989 as the originators of the "Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass" genre, a style of music that blends bluegrass, rock, country, blues, jazz and Cajun/Zydeco. Leftover Salmon's performance will be the first time the band has played in Florida since its hiatus at the end of 2004.

The record was named Best Americana Album of 2009. Notably for local folks, the record contains a cover of "White Dove," a tune by former Live Oak resident Carter Stanley of the world famous Stanley Brothers. Electric Dirt again finds Helm steeped in tradition, in his connection to the land and those who live by it. At the same time, he paints a broader musical canvas by incorporating gospel, blues and soul into a wide range of original compositions and eclectic cover songs. "Our objective here was to take the honesty, innocence and purity of the Dirt Farmer record, which represents a true element of what Levon is all about, but also expand on that and explore deeper the gold mine of Levon's musical artistry," said Campbell. Electric Dirt starts with a rousing rendition of The Electric DirtLevon Helm, formerly of The Band, wins Grammy for album that includes Carter Stanley song Electric Dirt, Grammy winner for Best Americana Album of 2009, contains a cover of a song by former Live Oak resident Carter Stanley. Courtesy illustrationTALLAHASSEE With its fourth annual competition now completed, the Florida Book Awards has announced the winners in seven categories of books published in 2009. "The culture of books in the Sunshine State continues to prosper, and these FBAwinners clearly prove it," said Florida Book Awards Director Wayne A. Wiegand, professor of Library and Information Studies and of American Studies at The Florida State University. The Florida Book Awards Ñ the nation's most comprehensive state book awards program Ñ was established in 2006 to recognize, honor and celebrate the best Florida literature published the previous year. Directed by Wiegand, the annual contest is headquartered and coordinated in The Florida State University Libraries under the supervision of Julia Zimmerman, dean of University LiGrateful Dead's "Tennessee Jed," moving on to a beautiful, stripped-down version of Happy Traum's "Golden Bird." "Growing Trade," written by Levon Helm and Larry Campbell, tells a heartfelt story of a farmer's struggle to preserve his livelihood. The rousing horn arrangements by Allen Toussaint and the Levon Helm Band on "Kingfish," written by Randy Newman, bring the swagger of New Orleans to the forefront. In 2007, after overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds, Helm released Dirt Farmer, his first solo recording in 25 years, which went on to win a Grammy for "Best Traditional Folk Album." The San Francisco Chronicle said, "This album is nothing less than a return to form by one of the most soulful vocalists in rock history." Rolling Stone went on further to hail Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble as "2008's Best Jam Session" and the same year, Helm received the "Artist of the Year" award from the Americana Music Association.4th annual ÔFlorida Book Awards'competition announces winners To learn more about Florida Book Awards, visit one or all of the following Web sites: * http://floridabookawards.lib.fsu.edu * http://floridabookawards.wordpress.com/ * http://www.facebook.com/FLBookAwardsbraries, and Gloria Colvin, a librarian in Reference and Research Services and currently the chairwoman of the Florida Book Awards Executive Committee.

That's when you'll have the added incentive of enjoying Cedar Key's annual Old Florida Celebration of the Arts. Unlike many art festivals and most craft fairs, this one is juried to ensure original artistry and fine craftsmanship. Over a hundred artists chosen to participate this year will compete for $10,000 in prize money and another $10,000 in purchase awards. The charming and Historic Second Street will become a pedestrian-only mall for this weekend event, both sides lined with booths displaying art and fine crafts in many different media oils, acrylics, prints, jewelry, ceramics, photography, stained glass, woodwork, sculpture, fiber and textiles. Afew steps beyond the booths is City Park, where children will have sidewalk chalk art, face painting, a playground and beach. You can listen to music in the park while lunching on seafood and desserts prepared and sold by local school, civic and church organizations. You won't soon forget the Garden Club's homemade-from-Cedar Key hosts ÔOld Florida'arts fest Scene from a recent Cedar Key Celebration of the Arts. Photo: Bill Kilbornscratch lemonade or Tony's World Champion clam chowder. If you have time for a leisurely visit, consider arriving a few days early or leaving a few days later. It will give you the chance to enjoy the quiet charm of Cedar Key, its waterways, its bird life, its museums, shops and restaurants. You can walk or cycle the entire town, photograph magnificent oaks and historic architecture, rent a kayak, charter a fishing trip, cast a line from the town dock, go birding, watch incredible sunsets, or stay up late stargazing. During the week you can join one of eight free yoga classes. Wander through the local art galleries or visit the Cedar Key Pottery Studio and see where their signature flat blue glaze originates. Or bring an easel and meet up with a group of plein air artists. Cedar Key is made up of a chain of small barrier islands extending three miles out into the Gulf of Mexico; the currently inhabited keys are joined by short bridges (which also make popular fishing spots). Thirteen other islands make up one of the oldest National Wildlife Refuges in the country, providing habitat to vast numbers of migratory and shore birds. There are daily boat tours to the island of Atsena Otie, site of the original settlement and home to an Eberhard Faber pencil factory, but devastated by a hurricane at the end of the 19th century and never rebuilt. The Old Florida Celebration of the Arts is easy to find. Take SR 24 (Archer Road) out of Gainesville and drive southwest to the end of the road, about 60 miles. You can also pick up SR24 at Archer, Bronson or Otter Creek if you are coming from other directions. Aviation buffs can even fly here (www.airnav.com/airport/KCDK), as long as they can land and take off with about 2000 feet of runway.

Located on a 110-acre property outside Gainesville, Lubee Bat Conservancy houses the largest and most diverse collection of tropical Old World fruit bats (Pteropodidae) in the world, and is recognized as a unique center dedicated to research, education and conservation of these threatened bats. The center hosts researchers and offers teaching and informal science education opportunities in partnership with colleges, universities, zoological institutions, museums and others. "Lubee Bat Conservancy is one of the best in the world because it has met the highest standards in the world," said AZAPresident and CEO Jim Maddy. "It takes hard work and dedication to meet Association of Zoos and Aquariums Standards." Each year Lubee Bat Conservancy connects to the local north central Florida community through environmental education programs delivered to local students, and its "Florida Annual Bat Festival." Hosted at the center in the fall, this popularGainesville's Lubee Bat Conservancy gets its due"batty" event attracted 2,300 visitors in 2009, offering a world class setting in which to view the real stars of the night; bats. This year, Lubee Bat Conservancy opens the doors of its newly certified center to the public on Nov. 13. To be certified, Lubee Bat Conservancy underwent a thorough investigation to ensure it has and will continue to meet everrising standards, which include animal care, veterinary programs, conservation, education, and safety. AZArequires zoos and aquariums to successfully complete this rigorous review and inspection every five years in order to be members of the Association. "As a member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, Lubee Bat Conservancy is a true leader in wildlife conservation," Maddy added. The certification process includes a detailed application and a meticulous onsite inspection by a team of trained zoo and aquarium professionals. The inspecting team observes all aspects of the institution's operation in areas such as animal care; keeper training; safety for visitors, staff, and animals; conservation efforts; veterinary programs; financial stability; risk management; and other areas. The inspection team prepares an extensive written report for the Accreditation Commission. Finally, top officials are interviewed at a formal Commission hearing, after which certification is granted, tabled, or denied. Any institution that is denied may reapply one year after the Commission's decision is made. Contact Lubee Bat Conservancy Director Allyson Walsh at 352-485-1250 for more information about the institution, including special events and activities for visitors and its ongoing commitment to wildlife conservation and science education.

Week of Mar. 21, 2010569559-F By J er emiah T uc k er CNHI Ne ws Ser vice Now 70 years old, William Eggleston is one of the most fashionable figures in rock Ôn'roll, despite never releasing a note of recorded music. With his lurid snapshots of ordinary scenes shot around his hometown of Memphis and the Mississippi Delta, Eggleston is mostly known as the photographer who made color photography a respectable art form. Using a dye process that rendered the hues of his work unusually sharp and bright, Eggleston favored ordinary subjects such as the neon isle of a supermarket, a tricycle framed against a banal suburban backdrop or a man sitting forlornly on the edge of a hotel bed. Dismissed by art critics early in his career, he has since become one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. An exhibition of his work at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City drew 120,000 viewers last year, prompting the institution to acquire more of Eggleston's work for its permanent collection. Less talked about, however, are the numerous Eggleston photographs that have enjoyed second lives as album covers. Even before the 1976 show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City brought him national attention, Eggleston's photograph of a red ceiling with a naked light bulb in the middle of it became the cover art for the second album by power pop progenitors Big Star. Like Eggleston, Big Star was from Memphis and eventually enjoyed artistic influence and critical acclaim after originally being ignored. Big Star's Alex Chilton also used an Eggleston photograph of a dozen dolls lined across the grill of a baby blue Cadillac for his 1979 solo album "Like Flies on Sherbert." The best-selling album to feature an Eggleston photograph is probably the emorock band Jimmy Eat World's platinum-selling 2001 album "Bleed American," later re-named "Jimmy Eat World" after the terrorist attacks of 9-11. "Bleed American's" cover is a cropped version of the Eggleston photo "Memphis, Tennessee 1968," which features an old-fashioned cigarette machine with a number of trophies arranged on top of it. In January this year the evergreen Austin rock band Spoon released its seventh album, "Transference," with a beautiful Eggleston photo taken in 1970 Mississippi of a young man. In the photo, the man is dressed in dark jeans and a khaki jacket, slouched with his hands behind his head in a Victorian hardbacked chair in the middle of a green, formal living room. Other artists who have used Eggleston photos for their album covers include Primal Scream, the Ô80s paisley underground band Green on Red, the Silver Jews and harpist and current indie darling Joanna Newsom. David Byrne of the Talking Heads and Cat Power have also licensed Eggleston's work, and the photographer even makes a cameo in Cat Power's 2006 music video "Lived in Bars." Perhaps the reason Eggleston's photos work soIconic photographer's work lives on CDswell as album covers is the unusual ordinariness of his subject matter. His subject of seemingly unremarkable Americana is imminently transplantable. Furthermore, Eggleston's gift for framing everyday moments in a way that makes the viewer take notice of an object or person she might have otherwise ignored is probably appealing to musicians who have a similar goal. Don't we listen to music for its ability to lend our mostly boring lives a little poignancy? Jeremiah Tucker Jeremiah Tucker writes for The Joplin (Mo.) Globe.

Three main tests are used to screen the breasts for cancer. Talk to your doctor about which tests are right for you, and when you should have them. * Mammogram: The most effe ctive means to detecting breast cancer, a mammogram is an X-ray of the breast. Mammograms can detect breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms. Having regular mammograms can lower the risk of dying from breast cancer. If you are age 40 years or older, be sure to have a screening mammogram every one to two years. * Clinical breast exam: A clinical breast exam is an examination by a doctor or nurse, who uses his or her hands to feel for lumps or other changes. * Breast self-exam: A breast self-exam is when you check your own breasts for lumps, changes in size or shape of the breast, or any other changes in the breasts or underarm (armpit). Having a clinical breast exam or a breast self-exam does not decrease risk of dying from breast cancer. If you choose to have clinical breast exams and to perform breast self-exams, be sure you also get regular mammograms. Breast cancer screenings are typically available at clinics, the local hospital or a doctor's office. If you want to be screened for breast cancer, call your doctor's of fice. They can help you schedule an appointment. Most health insurance companies pay for the cost of breast cancer screening tests.

Although he dabbled in art his entire life, he had never taken on a huge project such as the one he recently gave as a gift to the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. It was all about friendship and worth the effort, he relates. Bill Keith has been making nightly trips to the SOSMPfor years, dining with his good friend, Charles "Uncle Charles" Carrithers. When Charles passed away suddenly last year, Keith, a widower, continued to eat at the SOS CafŽ and Restaurant nightly. He became friends with Charles'sister, Jean Cornett, who with husband Bob started the Music Park. "One day Bill said he wanted to give me (and the Music Park) a gift," Jean Cornett said. Miss Jean, as she is called by family, co-workers and friends, said she didn't know what to make of the offer to paint a huge backdrop since she didn't know Bill was an artist. Bill soon produced a drawing of his idea for the backdrop that would cover the entire back of the Music Hall stage. "I sat here one night and made a sketch and told her she needed something unique to the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park," Bill said of his project. After a few revisions over the course of several months, Bill enlisted the help of one of his buddies, Harry Taylor. The gift of love was underway. "I can't sing, so this is my song," Bill said as he related the story of his artistic gift to the Music Hall where music is made weekly. After several weeks painting the design for the paddle wheel riverboat much like those often seen on the Suwannee River in the 1800s, there emerged a paddle wheel boat named the Spirit of the Suwannee. Painted on heavy muslin, the guys worked for nearly a month, spending 2-3 days a week at the Music Hall on the largest painting Bill had ever done. Intricate details can be seen on the boat such as a memorial to Charles, giving him the honorary title of captain. "I came to the Spirit of the Suwannee Park because of the SOS CafŽ and Restaurant, it was close to where I live, and this is where I met Charles," Bill said of his friendship with Charles. "We had a lot in common and became friends," he said. Bill, now "73 years young" and a chess player who also likes to sculpt wood, did a lot of measuring to put the project into perspective, all the while moving forward with what turned out to be a magnificent backdrop perfect for the stage of a music hall located on the banks of the famous Suwannee River. "I'm a retired sailor, and I've painted enough ships," Bill laughed, suggesting he put the big job of painting the large paddle wheel boat off on Harry. After all, retiring as a chief after 20 years in the Navy does give a man some advantage in the pecking order. Harry, a regular at karaoke nights in the Music Hall, had a big part in the project and he, too, worked long and hard to make the backdrop the perfect gift. His friends and family were on hand for the unveiling and reception for he and Bill, crowning them both with "arteest hats," otherwise known as berets. Both men were presented with a certificate of ap-Local artist paints riverboat backdrop for Spirit of the Suwannee Bill Keith, right, and his helper Harry Taylor, were honored by the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park at the unveiling with a reception.

Wrapping up my series of "inbox complaints," here's a letter from a reader who wonders about the health consequences of eating low-priced meats: Q: "I truly admire your talents for shopping. However, when it comes to saving money on meats, I wonder if you ever question the quality of them. Saving money by feeding children animal products that have been subjected to hormones is not worth the long-term effects on their health." A: I'm always concerned with the quality of the food I serve to my family, as I'm sure every parent is. You may be comforted to know that it has been against the law for more than 50 years to administer growth hormones to chicken or pigs. All poultry and pork products are free of growth hormones, whether or not it's printed on the labels. My family decided several years ago to switch to organic beef for health reasons, and we now prefer the flavor of grass-fed beef. It is more expensive, so it's an occasional meal, not a weekly one. All fresh meats will eventually leave the store if they don't sell by their expiration dates. One of my local stores donates expiring meats to a local food bank Ð a wonderful cause. Another store drastically cuts prices on soon-to-expire meats, including organic varieties. Ask your store's staff what happens to their expiring meats. Your supermarket may hold clearance sales on a specific day of the week. Learn to take advantage of those price drops. I've seen organic beef and poultry regularly dropped from $6.99/pound to $1.99/pound as it nears the expiration date Ð that's a great per-pound price for any meat! If you have a freezer, you'll want to stock up when these sales come around. Time your purchases well and you may be buying higher-quality meats for low prices on a regular basis. You didn't mention seafood in your letter, but this is another area to watch prices and variation in quality. Farm-raised fish will always be cheaper per pound than wild-caught. Many shoppers prefer wild-caught fish, which have subsisted on a wild diet, citing health reasons. But "wild" does not automatically mean "healthier." Some varieties of fish are actually healthier when farm-raised. Catfish are a great example. In the wild, catfish are "bottom feeders," taking sustenance in shallow, muddy and possibly polluted water. They can be exposed to toxins and pesticides, which ultimately end up in the fish itselfÉ and in us. By contrast, farmraised catfish typically eat a diet of corn and rice and are raised in clean pools of water. They're healthier and less expensive than their wild counterparts. If you like fish, don't be afraid to fillet them yourself. Whole fish are often priced significantly lower. Even if you've never cleaned a fish, it's not hard to do (you can even learn how on the Internet) and you may find you're saving big over pre-filleted portions. I'll never forget the time my supermarket's seafood department had an overstock of catfish. They had a sign up advertising whole catfish for a fabulously low 29 cents/pound! I bought nine big catfish and I spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning and filleting the fish, then freezing those portions for many meals down the road. (My big fish stock-up also turned into an impromptu fishcleaning lesson for my daughter.) As with many of the shopping and product choice issues readers raised, the decision ultimately lies with you. Skilled coupon shoppers are able to "coupon down" the prices of so many products to rock-bottom levels, thereby freeing up more of the grocery budget for the kinds of meats and seafood they prefer. The dollars you save using coupons on toothpaste and shampoo can help pay for the higher prices of items you might love, like organic, grass-fed meats or wild-caught fish.
