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.

Shooting


now seen


as homicide
Man felled
by single shot
to the head
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
The March 26 shooting
that killed a Live Oak man
is being investigated as a
homicide, Police Chief
Buddy Williams said Tues-
day.
"At this point I'll venture
to say we're investigating a
homicide," said Williams.
Williams said the gun
that shot 35-year-old Mar-
vin Lewis O'Hara once in
the head remains missing.
RI.Iii now we're still in-
terviewing suspects or wit-
nesses or whatever the case
may be," said Williams.
Officers were called to a
shooting at 813 Hillman
Avenue around 11 p.m.,
which Williams said is a
rooming house. When offi-
cers arrived on scene they

An administrative hear-

to decide whether insurance
agent Donald Bullock
would retain his agent's li-
cense was stricken from the
dockets in a move that his
attorney, Julie Gallagher,
said "makes sense."
The case, which was set
for a formal hearing under
the Department of Financial
Services April 6, will soon
be rescheduled for an infor-
mal hearing. The file was
closed March 30.
Gallagher said the change

Convenience store robbed at gunpoint


Suspect identified, says
LOPD chief Williams
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.comcom
The Jiffy Store at Duval Street and
Mussey Avenue in Live Oak was
robbed by gunpoint Sunday night and
a suspect had been identified as of


Tuesday morning, according to LOPD
Chief Buddy Williams. The suspect's
name has not been released.
"A black male ran in with a gun and
took an undisclosed amount of mon-
ey," said Williams.
According to Williams the 18 to 25-
year-old suspect entered the store
around 9:45 p.m. wearing a mask and
pointed a handgun at the clerks.


"The subject walked behind the
sales counter and demanded money,"
said Williams.
Two clerks were on duty at the
time.
"The clerks complied with his de-
mands and gave him the money in the
register," said Williams.

30 PERCENT
REDUCTION
ANTICIPATED


Big cuts


loom for


library
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
Suwannee County's di-
rector of libraries is asking
residents to continue show-
ing their support for li-
braries in the face of pend-
ing budget cuts by the state
legislature.
"If funding isn't avail-
able, then several folks will
lose jobs, Branford (li-
brary) will have significant-
ly reduced hours, and Live
Oak would probably have
to go to four days a week,"
Danny Hales said.
The state House and Sen-
ate Transportation and Eco-
nomic Development (TED)
Appropriations Committees
cut all state library funding
March 10. The House has
since appropriated
$500,000 in their budget
and the Senate has appro-
priated $15 million. The
current state library budget
is $21.2 million, the thresh-
old to be eligible for feder-
al matching funds.
"If they go with the $15
million that is another 30
percent cut in funding for
libraries, and they will lose
getting several million dol-
lars of federal funding since
they would fall below the
qualification level of
spending," said Hales. "As
we understand there won't
be much action this week in
Tallahassee, since the state
legislature is waiting on the
feds to determine what will
happen to Medicare before
they have the state confer-
ence committee with repre-

ASK DR. MANTOOTH



Q: Does dental health carry Implications
beyond the mouth?
A: Yes. Studies have shown that taking
good care of your teeth and gums can
lower your risk for heart disease.
Researchers have found that people who
suffer from gum disease, also called
periodontal disease, are twice as likely to
suffer from coronary artery disease as
those without gum disease. The bacteria
that breed under the gums can spread to
other parts of the body, including the
blood vessels of the heart.
Also, earlier this year, the journal
Obstetrics and Gynecology cited the case


of a California woman who had a stillborn
birth. Doctors determined that the baby's
stomach and lungs contained the same
strain of oral bacteria that the 35-year-old
mother had in her untreated gum disease.
It's not uncommon for pregnant women to
experience bleeding gums as a result of
hormonal changes. If you're in that
situation, check with your dentist about
the case of the bleeding. For the rest of
us, it's a good idea to talk with our dentists
and our physicians about the importance
of oral health in overall well-being.

He received Christ as his
personal Lord and Savior at
a very young age, and


devoted his entire life to
serving the church with a
music ministry that touched
many lives for Christ. He
was an active member of
the Advent Christian
Church and faithfully
served as an organist and
music ministry leader for
over fifty years. Les's
"Good ole' Gospel" organ
style was loved and revered
by many church
parishioners in N.H. and
Fla., especially at the Alton
Bay Christian Conference
Center, where he served as
campus organist for the
past 15 years. He had
committed to memory and
could play by heart over
700 hymns in any key. Les
loved children, and often
served as a children's
Sunday School and music
teacher at many of the
churches he attended.
Les is survived by his
wife of two years, Joyce
(Carle), three daughters,
Penny Carpenter of
Raymond, N.H., Vicki
Dunbar of Exeter, N.H.,
and Wendy Goldston of
Harriman, Tenn., one son,
Leslie (Jay) Hett, Jr. of

Hett of Brentwood, N.H.,
Sarah, Rachel, Molly,
Emily, and Erin Goldston
of Harriman, Tenn.; and
five great-grand children
Riley, Talisee, Avree, Sam
and Ava Carpenter. He was
predeceased by his first
wife of 56 years, Letty
(Page) Hett in 2008, and
one daughter, Kristie Hett,
in 1998. He is also survived
by two brothers, Phillip of
Alton Bay, N.H., and
Robert of North Attleborro,
Mass.
Funeral arrangements are

Home in Live Oak, Florida.

THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLER



It's about



hair
By Jim Holmes
I was playing on the Internet the other day (al-
ways a dangerous thing for me to do) and came
across a statistic that knocked me on my heels. A
Web page entitled Mail-on-Line claims that there is
a 2005 study showing the average British woman
spends nearly two-years of her life (650 days to be
exact) caring for her hair! I couldn't find anything
on US women, but I suspect it might easily be that
much time or even more.
Of course, we men are responsible, whether we
want to admit it or not. We are unfortunately visu-
ally-stimulated creatures; otherwise we really
would be buying Playboy magazine strictly for the
articles.
I couldn't find anything on how much time men
spend on their hair, but a Nielsen study shows that
78 percent of Americans believe men are now more
interested in personal grooming than they used to
be. I guess that shouldn't come as any great sur-
prise, as we live in a society that seems to worship
appearance.
I don't think of myself as being particularly vain,
yet I have to admit that when I was a kid, my hair
was something I thought about ... a lot! As I think I
told you before, if I could have had an Elvis "duck
tail" I would have, but my father insisted I wear my
hair short, in what we called back then a "flat top."
Although I hated the style, it didn't mean I wasn't
concerned about how it looked. So, every morn-
ing, I'd get up and slap on the "flattop wax." (To-
day, I suspect it was just lard with pink food color-
ing.) And a little dab WOULDN'T do! If my hair
had to be short, I still wanted it to stand "at atten-
tion" ... so I heaped on that wax. I suspect after an
hour, I could have walked into any hard hat zone
with complete confidence that no dropped monkey
wrench presented my encased cranium any danger.
Today, I WANT my hair cut short. To me the per-
fect haircut is one I only have to comb once every
three days ... even with a daily washing. My wife,
who has also been my barber for nearly 40 years, is
only too happy to oblige. As a result, what she may
lack in hair styling technique, she more than makes
up for in enthusiasm.
I have noticed however, that with each passing
day, hair seems to crop up in places where it didn't
grow previously ... and not grow at all in others. I
mean, when the dickens did I start getting hair on
my ear lobs. Mind you, not IN the ears, but ON
THE OUTSIDE. Assuming I wanted them, with a
little patience, I could braid myself earrings. On the
other hand, the crown of my head is now as bare as
a baby's bottom and just as pink. From behind, I
look more and more like Robin Hood's Friar Tuck,
which is only fitting, since my eyebrows are now
as wild and thick as Sherwood Forest.
But most disturbing to me is the mass quantity of
hair that now erupts from my nose!
I have a theory about why it is so plentiful. I'm
firmly convinced it has to do with my bald spot.
You see, as I've gotten older, I know my brain has
dried up. TV has proven to me that I am no longer
smarter than a 5th grader. And when things dry up,
they get smaller, so there is now space in my skull
that previously did not exist.
The conclusion: my scalp's missing hair isn't
falling out. As a self defense mechanism to escape
my wife's energetic and very sharp scissors ... it has
become ingrown and is now making a mad dash, if
you will, out my schnoz!
Jim Holmes lives in Live Oak.

What small businesses need to


know about the new healthcare law


By Dan Danner
The long debate over healthcare
reform has ended, leaving many
small business owners more con-
fused than ever over what to expect.
But they know one thing-they'll be
paying for it for years to come.
The package won't be fully imple-
mented until 2018. However, there
are important provisions that will be
effective this year, in 2011 and 2012
that entrepreneurs need to begin
planning for now. The changes large-
ly involve new taxes, fees and man-
dates on individuals and small busi-
ness.
In 2010, a temporary tax credit
will be available for a limited num-
ber of firms who provide qualified
health coverage. However, the credit
puts small business owners through a
series of complicated tests to deter-
mine the amount of the credit. Only
firms with 10 employees or less will
receive the full credit. For firms with
11-25 employees, the credit is re-
duced per employee. Firms with
more than 25 employees will get no
credit at all.
In addition, only firms who pay
their workers an average of $25,000
or less are eligible for the full credit.
The credit is reduced as the average
wage goes up, stopping when it
reaches $50,000. Also, only firms


that cover 50 percent or more of in-
surance costs will be eligible. Even if
your business is one of the 12 per-
cent that will qualify, the credit is
only available for six years.
In the meantime, other provisions
that will drive up costs include an as-
sault on one particular industry, a 10
percent tax on indoor tanning ser-
vices begins July 1.
Beginning in 2011, new changes
take effect that will increase costs
and limit choices. Those changes in-
clude:
. New limits on HSAs and FSAs-
Consumers will be prohibited from
using health savings accounts and
flexible spending funds to purchase
non-prescribed items, including
over-the-counter medication (except
insulin).
. Federally subsidized long-term
care-Small businesses may voluntar-
ily participate in a new long-term
care program. Participating firms'
employees will be automatically en-
rolled and subject to payroll deduc-
tions unless they choose to opt out.
This program means more paper-
work and will almost certainly cost
far more than what the deductions
will cover.
. A brand-name drug tax-Manu-
facturers and importers of brand-
name drugs will pay a tax of $2.5 bil-


lion in 2011, $3 billion per year for
2012 through 2016, $3.5 billion for
2017, $4.2 billion for 2018, and $2.8
billion for 2019 and thereafter. This
tax is certain to be passed along to
consumers.
In 2012, small business owners
will face a tremendous new burden.
They will have to send to the IRS a
Form 1099 for each and every busi-
ness-to-business transaction of $600
or more. We expect that the IRS will
hire as many as 12,000 new auditors.
Further out, we'll see new taxes,
an expensive, federally mandated
minimum benefits package, and ad-
ditional complex mandates on indi-
viduals and employers who will face
penalties if they don't comply.
In the meantime, small business
owners will struggle trying to gauge
the costs and understand the impact
of a new law they neither wanted nor
asked for, rather than the solutions
that would actually help them cope
with the rising costs of healthcare.
No doubt when November comes,
small business owners will remem-
ber who forced this reform on them
and cast their vote accordingly at the
ballot box.

Submitted
Branford's Polly Tyler, who had been serving
as assistant administrator of Haven Hospice's
services in Lake City, has been named adminis-
trator. She succeeds Robert Wineberg, who led
a community campaign to support the opening
of Haven's Suwannee Valley Hospice Care
Center in January of 2007. "Bob did a mar-
velous job," Tyler said. "He created many op-
portunities for the community to be involved
with Haven. I am delighted to be able to serve
and will be continuing his work."
A resident of Branford since 1984 and the
first school nurse in Branford, at BHS, Tyler
joined Haven in 2008 as assistant administrator
of Haven's services in the tri-counties area,
based in Chiefland. She joined Haven's Lake
City team last March. Prior to Haven, she had
served as administrator of the Veterans Domi-
ciliary in Lake City for 17 years, where she
started as director of nursing. A U.S. Army vet-
eran, she also worked at the Veterans Adminis-
tration Hospital in Lake City. She holds a bach-
elor of science degree in nursing from the Uni-
versity of South Florida.
Haven Hospice serves people and their com-
munities affected by life-limiting illness and
loss by providing comprehensive, compassion-
ate care, while respecting each person's needs,
beliefs and wishes. Its services include pro-
grams to educate and support those who face
challenging circumstances-each available at no
charge to those who need them.

The Suwannee County
Conservation District,
Lake City Community
College, and Suwannee
River Water Management
District held the Regional
Envirothon Contest at
Lake City Community
College Campus recently.
Students from area high
schools come to partici-
pate in many different dis-
ciplines that the contest
has to offer. Forestry,
Wildlife, Current Issues,
Aquatics, and Soil are all
part of the contest and the
students need to have an
understanding of the fun-
damentals of these sub-
jects in order to score av-
erage on the disciplines.
This year there were 18
teams comprised of 89
students that participated
from Suwannee High
School, Branford High
School, and Fort White
High School.
The Suwannee FFA
came out first in the total
competition with a slim
lead of only 17 points
over Fort White High
School. The third place
team was Suwannee High
School's Team #6.


The Florida Envirothon
is an annual competition
in which winning regional
teams compete for recog-
nition and prizes by
demonstrating their
knowledge of environmen-
tal science and natural re-
sources management. The
teams, each consisting of
four to five high school
aged students, exercise
their training and prob-
lem-solving skills in a
competition centered on
four universal testing cate-
gories (soil/land use,
aquatic ecology, forestry,
and wildlife) and a current
environmental issue. (Pro-
tection of Groundwater
through Urban Agriculture
and Environmental Plan-
ning was this year's top-
ic.)
With the current budget
issues that everyone is
faced with we truly appre-
ciate our sponsors for sup-
porting this very important
and innovative environ-
mental education program

classroom setting: Lake
City Community College;

Dante's Inferno

Visceral Games did an amazing job of creating fitting locations and demons to fill the


By Cody Webb
One of the last places
gamers would ever expect
to find inspiration for a
video game would be an
epic poem written in the
1300's. Well folks, the
team at Visceral Games
(who you may remember
as the developers of Dead
Space) has found such in-
spiration: say hello to
Dante's Inferno, loosely
based on the first part "The
Divine Comedy", a poem


nine circles of Hell. It gets


me to flesh out the story a
little more. The titular
character Dante is a cru-
sader in the Third Cru-
sades, who gets attacked
and manages to fight off
Death to return home. Un-
fortunately for the hero,
however, he finds that his
father and his one true
love (Beatrice) slain. As if
that wasn't bad enough,
Beatrice's spirit appears to
tell him that she is being
dragged into Hell and it is
because of him. Furious
and determined to redeem
himself and his love,
Dante follows her down
into the flames. As I said
before, the disturbed folks
over at Visceral did a cre-
ative job of showing a be-
lievable and sick Hell.
Every level of Hell has its


written by Dante Alighieri.
Before I go deeper into de-
tails, I should warn read-
ers: Inferno is definitely
not a game for the weak of
stomach. For those of you
who don't know the story,
it follows Dante as he
travels through Hell to free
the love of his life. Need-
less to say, Visceral Games
did an amazing job of cre-
ating fitting locations and
demons to fill the nine cir-
cles of Hell. It gets nasty
quite often, so you have
been warned.
All right, for those of
you still with me, allow

nasty quite often,
own look to it, and each
monster is twisted about to
fit whatever sin they have
been condemned for. The
level of detail in the envi-
ronment and the beasties is
definitely one of Inferno's
high points. Luckily for
players, Dante is easily
able to fight these demons
thanks to some very solid
controls. You have sepa-
rate buttons for light at-
tacks, heavy attacks and
ranged attacks. Jumping
can be off at times, but it
hardly becomes a problem
during combat. If the con-
trols seem familiar, well,
you've probably played a
God of War game or two.
Still, Inferno could've
picked a worse game to
copy; the fighting is fun,
isn't that what matters?

The game does try to sepa-
rate itself from other simi-
lar games by including a
Holy and Unholy path.
There are certain demons
you can perform finishing
moves on, and what type
of finishing move you do
affects what kind of expe-
rience you get. Absolving
them earns you Holy expe-
rience while Punishing
them nets you a brutal fin-
ishing kill and Unholy
points. Upgrading these
paths boosts the strength
of your weapons (Holy
strengthens your Cross,
Unholy boosts your
Scythe), and you can buy
new combos, health and
manna boosts, etc. You can
even "customize" Dante
further by equipping him
with various Relics; each
with their own unique
boosts and requirements.
So with a story told

be a lot to go through. Un-
fortunately, a lot of the ar-
eas feel underdeveloped
while others (Looking at
you, Greed) seem unneces-
sarily long. It's a shame; I
was hoping for more as I
reached the top-tier levels
of power and was able to
annihilate my foes. Hope-
fully the upcoming DLC
will further extend the
game's playtime. In the
end, however, Dante's In-
ferno is a decent game.
There are quite a few
memorable, and brutal,
moments coupled with
great gameplay and an
imaginative Hell. If you
can stomach it, this a
rather macabre treat of vi-
olence and well-acted sto-
rytelling. Inferno gets a B;
you know, The Divine
Comedy was a three part
play. Could this be the
start of a new trilogy? I
hope so!

Hales said that should be

More than 25,000 email
messages and phone calls
have been sent to legisla-
tors and the governor's of-
fice in Tallahassee asking
the state to restore library
funding. Suwannee's li-

their funding from the
state. Last year Suwannee
County received $515,267
in state aid.
The Suwannee River Re-

www.neflin.org/srrl/ has
pre-written letters that can
be emailed to legislators to
ask that funding be re-
stored. There is also a

and the governor's office.

Smith saw her ex-husband
"underneath her truck
draining the motor oil."
The report stated that
Smith then went to her
truck and retrieved a .38-
caliber pistol and shot at
the man as he arose. The
victim then fled the scene
at which point Smith fired
another shot at him as he
ran down 68th Street
around 1:30 a.m.
Smith was arrested and

New York it's really good because
it's so hard to show there," said
Chandler. And, Chandler says,
most of his featured work will be
scenes of Suwannee County.
"All the serious work I've done
over the past few years has been
focused on Suwannee," said Chan-
dler.
Chandler, who graduated from
Suwannee High School in 1999,
has always liked photography, but
only delved into it while in col-
lege. He was in his first year at the
University of Florida learning
building construction when a
friend's camera caught his eye.
"I ended up just taking pictures
on the side with my friend's cam-
era," Chandler said. "I got way
more interested in taking photos
than what I was studying."
So after changing his major to
fine arts and graduating in 2005,
he started on his graduate degree.
In 2008 he was named Tampa's
Photo Laureate, the sixth person to


hold the post. Chandler was given
$25,000 to shoot photos around
Tampa, where much of his work
can be seen today, hanging in
places such as Tampa City Hall.
Chandler's work over the past
few years has focused mainly on
"people's relationship with the
natural environment" and how
people use those settings in a
recreational way.
He said he likes "contemporary
portraitures of work. I like docu-
mented style photography."
That's one reason Chandler uses
Suwannee County as a backdrop.
"I'm interested in the culture
here. I'm from the area so I'm re-
ally interested in that landscape."
Chandler calls his work "almost
autobiographical" in a way "be-
cause I have a lot of memories
here myself. It's so beautiful to
me."
To get the right shot, Chandler
said he would see a picture "start
to emerge in my head" would ask
permission to get the shot and then
"carry this massive (camera) with


me."
He said the camera works as an
icebreaker. It takes him a few min-
utes to set the cumbersome device
up, and by that time he has opened
up a dialogue with folks nearby.
"I talk to people and get to know
them, I get to ease them and by the
time it's all set up they're ready to
take a picture," he said. "People
have been pretty receptive. You
think people would be weirded out
but they're not."
Chandler will then throw a blan-
ket over him and the back of the
camera and take several pictures;
some he keeps, others won't make
the cut.
Chandler said his Suwannee
project was put on hold due to the
cold weather, but said he'll pick
back up shortly.
"I really want my work to be
shown around Suwannee County
more," said Chandler.
In December, Chandler will
once again show in Miami at the
Miami Art Basel. The Art Basel,
according to its Web site, is a

Todd Kennon seeks county judge's post


Continued From Page 1A

both criminal and civil law.
Kennon has handled and
continues to handle all
types of cases that would
be handled by the County
Court. His practice has al-
lowed him to gain exten-
sive experience in areas
such as misdemeanor crim-
inal law, small claims mat-
ters, landlord/tenant cases
and general civil matters.
In fact, his entire legal ex-
perience has been focused
on handling a broad spec-
trum of cases.
In the age of computers
and tcliiil, h,.',, Kennon
will maintain an accessible
office utilizing not only
modern tcliii ,h,' ',, but
also the "tried and true"
old-fashioned telephone,
he notes. Elected officials
of Suwannee County must
be expected to be available
to the citizens not only
from 8:00 to 5:00, but at
other reasonable hours and
he is committed to provid-
ing this type of access.
Kennon says the experi-
ence of handling civil cas-
es from both sides has al-


lowed him to appreciate
the importance of a fair
and impartial hearing.
Both sides in a lawsuit
must be given the opportu-
nity to present their issues
to the court and this will
be done within the para-
meters of the law. Every
citizen leaving a Court
proceeding must know
that the Judge has listened
to them and has consid-
ered their evidence and ar-
guments. The final aspect
of a legal proceeding is the
rendering of the judge's
decision. Kennon is com-
mitted to making his deci-
sions in a timely manner
and in such a manner that
the participants will un-
derstand how and why the
decision was rendered.
Kennon was born and
raised in Suwannee Coun-
ty. After graduating from
Suwannee High School in
1983, he attended Lake
City Community College
and graduated in 1985
with an Associate of Arts
degree and earning the
Magna Cum Laude Honor.
He graduated from the
University of Florida in


1987 with a Bachelor of
Arts degree with an em-
phasis in criminology and
following in the family
tradition, graduated from
the University of Florida,
College of Law with Hon-
ors.
After graduation, Ken-
non had the privilege of
practicing with Darby,
Peele, Bowdoin & Payne,
PA. under the guidance of
Rod Bowdoin and Blair
Payne, where he learned
his litigation skills. From
these lawyers, Todd
learned to handle both civ-
il and criminal cases.
Todd then spent three
years with the law firm of
Brannon, Brown, Haley,
Robinson & Bullock, PA.
In 2005, Kennon and his
partners formed the law
firm of Robinson, Kennon
& Kendron, PA.
During his legal career,
Kennon has been involved
in both the local and Third
Circuit Bar Associations.
From 2002 to 2003, he
chaired the Third Circuit
Grievance Committee and
also served as the Third
Circuit Representative of


The Florida Bar, Young
Lawyer's Division, from
1992-1996. Kennon is cur-
rently a Supreme Court
Certified Family Law Me-
diator and has completed
the training to serve as a
Court appointed Arbitra-
tor.
Community service is
also an important part of
Kennon's life, as he has
served as a softball coach
for his daughter's team
and on the boards of such
charitable organizations as
the Association for Retard-
ed Citizens and as the at-
torney for the Columbia
County Senior Services.
Also, Kennon is a member
of the Suwannee Quarter-
back Club, the Rotary
Club of Live Oak and the
Suwannee River Sports-
man Club.
Kennon is excited to
seek the opportunity to
serve the citizens of
Suwannee County and re-
spectfully requests your
vote and support for

non, III for Suwannee
County Court Judge on

showing of "more than 250 gal-
leries from North America, Eu-
rope, Latin America, Asia and
Africa" with over 2,000 artists.
Well-known artists such as Chuck
Close, Ingar Dragset and Claire
Fontaine have showed their works
at the Basel.
"All New York City galleries as
well as all major galleries pack up
their stuff and head to the Basel.
It's a really good way to get no-
ticed," said Chandler, whose work
is represented by the Mindy
Solomon Gallery in St. Peters-
burg.
When Chandler isn't shooting
portraits he is teaching photogra-
phy at the University of South
Florida and The Art Institute of
Tampa as an adjunct professor. He
said his hopes are to one day be a
full time tenured professor and to
have his name recognizable in the
art world.

Bullock license

hearing canceled

heard.
"The Department was
only going to proceed
under the one criminal
charge related to the in-
surance industry, which
we don't dispute," Gal-
lagher said. "It would
only need to be heard
formally under the de-
partment if there were no
other related factors."
However, by choosing
to go the route of an in-
formal hearing, she said,
"My client will get the
chance to argue his case
and be given the opportu-
nity to speak and ask for
leniency."
Gallagher opened up
about what it is Bullock
is fighting for, much of
which pertains to an ear-
lier decision he made to
accept a guilty plea in
criminal court.
"I think that he made
the plea to resolve the
criminal charges, but did
not fully understand the
impact it would have on
his professional license
and even his family."
As it stands, his license
has not been affected,
however.
Gallagher said that she
could not speculate on
what he was told by his
legal council in the crim-


final case, but that "it's
not uncommon for some-
one in a license related-
criminal case to later face
discipline in an adminis-
trative hearing; I don't
think Bullock knew that
was coming when he ac-
cepted the plea agree-
ment."
The informal hearing
to come will grant Bul-
lock the opportunity to
not only address the oth-
er charges surrounding
his felony case, but to
make sure that any other
factors are considered,
Gallagher said.
She doesn't expect the
process to take much
longer.
"I could image they'll
set the case for a hearing
date within the next cou-
ple of weeks."
Bullock was arrested
in January 2009 for in-
surance fraud and two
counts of false claim and
scheme to defraud. He
was originally arrested
three times in 2007 on
charges including grand
theft, forgery, fraud, em-
bezzlement, cheating and
taking money from cus-
tomers and failing to pur-
chase insurance policies.
Bullock pleaded guilty
last June to grand theft,
felony fraud and insur-
ance fraud.

This year's theme


is Man Up for


Your Health!


.1 .

By Mary Ward
Suwannee County
Health Dept.

While the life-expectan-
cy gap between men and
women has decreased, it is
no secret that men still need
to pay more attention to
their bodies. Several things
work against men. They
tend to smoke and drink
more than women; they
don't seek medical help as
often as women. Some men
define themselves by their
work, which can add to
stress. There are also health
conditions that only affect
men, such as prostate can-
cer. African American and
Hispanic males tend to be
more prone to certain dis-
eases and on average are
less likely to seek regular
medical care.
Many of the major health
risks that men face - like
colon cancer or heart dis-
ease - can be prevented and
treated with early diagno-
sis. Screening tests can find
diseases early, when they
are easier to treat. It is im-
portant to have regular
checkups and screenings.
It's never too late to start
taking better care of your
health.
* Make eating healthy
and being active a part of
your daily routine.
* Get screening tests on
schedule.
* Look out for signs of
health problems like dia-
betes or depression.
* Quit smoking and drink
only in moderation
* Try a green salad in-
stead of fries.
* Drink water instead of
soda or sweet tea.
* Cut back on the salt
A healthy diet and daily
physical activity can help

Several local governments within the Suwannee River
Water Management District have joined hundreds of oth-
ers around the state in proclaiming April as Water Conser-
vation Month. In conjunction, the District has produced a
series of articles to promote conservation and highlight
simple water-saving tips that anyone can follow. This arti-
cle features Florida Friendly Landscaping (FFL) practices.
The District began promoting year-round conservation
in January when it rolled out its water conservation rules
for landscape irrigation. Under the landscape irrigation
rule, watering is allowed once per week during Standard
Time and twice per week
during Daylight Saving
Time, but not between the
hours of 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Res-
idents and others may
choose which days of the
week to water.
Sound restrictive? By fol-
lowing a few simple steps,
you might be surprised to
know that it's possible to
cultivate a beautiful land- , ,.,
scape without exceeding ir-
rigation limits. , 1 ' '
The District partners with
UF/IFAS and encourages
the implementation of FFL.
Following FFL practices can Landscaping the Florida-
help you achieve an attrac- achieve an attractive, low
tive, low maintenance land- uses less water, fertilizer an
scape that uses less water,
fertilizer and pesticides.
FFL emphasizes nine main principles that protect the
environment. This article will highlight five of those that
help conserve water and protect our springs and rivers.

RIGHT PLANT, RIGHT PLACE
*Choose low-maintenance plants that will adapt to your
site's soil, light and water conditions.
*Group plants with similar water and maintenance needs
together.
*Use grass only where it's functional, such as play areas
for children or pets.
-Avoid using invasive exotics.


WATER EFFICIENTLY
*Most Florida-friendly landscapes can thrive on rainfall
alone.
*For lawns, 1/2"- 3/4" of water per application is
enough.
*Use rain gauges, soil moisture sensors, automatic shut-
off devices on sprinklers, drip- or micro-irrigation systems
and rain barrels to irrigate more efficiently.

FERTILIZE APPROPRIATELY
*Use slow-release fertilizer and don't over-water after
applying.
*Don't fertilize when
heavy rain is predicted. Ex-
cess rainfall and irrigation
will wash fertilizer into our
waterways.

REDUCE STORMWA-
TER RUNOFF
*Sweep grass clippings,
fertilizer and soil onto the
lawn so they won't wash
into storm drains.
-Use mulch, bricks, grav-
el or other porous materials
for walkways, driveways
and patios.

PROTECT
THE WATERFRONT
If you live along a shore-
line:


*Establish a 20'-40' foot "no fertilizer- no pesticide"
buffer zone along the shoreline.
*Plant a buffer zone of low-maintenance plants between
your lawn and shoreline.

Conservation is an important component in meeting our
current water needs and preserving our water supplies for
years to come. Following FFL practices helps us be water-
wise in meeting this goal.

District's Web site at www.mysuwanneeriver.com. For

lost one of its
own with the
passing of Little /
Tony Owens.
Little Tony liked to call me
Brother Tom and didn't
shake my hand unless a
man hug went with it.
There was nothing little
about Little Tony. He
always weighed about 200,
that could be 201 or 241.
He had a big smile, a great
laugh and a love of life.
He died on his 33rd
birthday.
Little Tony carried the
ball for the Bulldogs about
15 years ago. He didn't
run around too many
people, he ran over and
through them. He was one
of those guys who always
wanted the ball. He would
be a Bulldog forever.
At his viewing I paid my
respects to his sister Kaffa,
a great Suwannee athlete,
and his brother Rock,
another great Bulldog. His
nephews Devon and
Delwynn Allen, Jarvis
Herring and Andra Davis
all filled the first pew with
his parents, Percy and
Lovella. Certainly a family
steeped in Bulldog
tradition. As I walked out I
passed Suwannee Hall of
Famers Mike Jones and
Reggie Ford.
Outside, coaches
Pittman, Hall, Allen,
Bonds and Scarborough
had gathered. Teammates

Suwannee Storm takes



second at tourney


By Tracie A Daniels

The Suwannee Storm basketball team is
back in action. The team took fourth place
at its first tournament this spring, and re-
cently competed March 27-28 in
Gainesville at the USSSA Stampede
Shootout.
The team was small in number with
many members out, but fought hard to


bring home the trophy for second place in
the boys 16-under division.
The Storm won their first game 66-59
against a Division 3 team from
Gainesville but fell in the second game
79-68 to a Division 1 team from Ocala,
the BGCMC Magic.
The next day the team played three ex-
hausting games and earned their way back
up the bracket to the championship game.


The Storm beat the D2 Jax Suns 54-22
and the D2 Citrus Wildcats 72-43, before
once again facing the Magic, who were
victorious with a score of 60-50.
The Storm's highlight game was the
semifinal against the Wildcats played at
Santa Fe High School. Fans of both teams
alike were amazed as the Storm was firing

split a pair

By Corey Davis
corey.davis@gaflnews.com

Since defeating Newberry 2-0 March 16,
Suwannee softball has been playing rather
well, splitting a pair of games over the last
week and half.
"We're playing really well right now,"
Suwannee head coach Tommy Chambers
said. "If we keep playing well the next two
weeks, we might surprise some teams in the
district tournament."
Suwannee 0, Santa Fe 0 (Bot. 9, sus-
pended)
"Santa Fe is the best team in the district
and we go over there (March 25) and were
deadlocked in a 0-0 tie in the bottom of the
ninth, before the game is suspended due to
rain," Chambers said.
Suwannee made the trip to Alachua again
Monday April 5 at 5:30 to finish the game,
to close out District 5-3A play.

Suwannee junior right-hander pitcher Trevor Lister
earned the win, allowing one run on five hits, while
striking out four and walking two. Lister helped him-
self out by adding a single and pair of runs at the plate.
Matthew Pennington went 3-for-3 and Greg Swinson
was 2-for-3 with 2 RBIs to lead the Bulldogs. Spanish
River's Johnny Durgan went 2-for-4 with a home run,
but the Sharks (8-11) fell to the Bulldogs (12-6) in
Live Oak. Parker Searing pitched six innings and had
six strikeouts for Spanish River.

on all cylinders, with an impressive
whole-team offense that seemingly
could not be stopped.
The team scored 17 three-point-
ers, divided evenly among six of
the seven players on the roster.
Scoring was led by Jimmie Taylor
(17), Marcus Lane (15), guard
DeAngelo Ross (16), and DeAndre
Devore (10).
Ross had an outstanding game off
the bench shooting 67% from the
field while sinking four three-point
shots.
Players who received tournament
team awards were Taylor (MVP)
and Lane, who received the Hustler
Award for his outstanding effort on
the court.
The team's trophy is currently on
display at Kay's Cuban-American
Restaurant on US 90.
The Suwannee Storm is classified
as a Division 3 team. Teams from
Division 3 are limited to students


who are all from the same school,
but most teams the Storm faces
throughout the state are D1 and D2
composite teams with accomplished
players from many different schools
and regions.
Come support your local Storm
team as they play April 16-18 in
Gainesville at the YBOA Mustang
Classic, with over 100 teams regis-
tered. The Storm will also be play-
ing April 23-25 in Jacksonville in a
Southeast Regional Qualifier, where
they will compete to earn an auto-
matic bid in the national tourna-
ment later this summer.
The team would also like to for-
mally announce the 2nd Annual
Donkeyball fundraiser which will
be held May 1 at the Suwannee
County Coliseum. For more infor-
mation about the team, or if your
business would like to sponsor the

North Marion 9, Suwannee 4
North Marion freshman pitcher Garri-
son Vandeventer struck out eight and
walked three, in addition to hitting a solo
home run to lead the Colts to a 9-4 win
over Suwannee April 1 at Buchholz.
While Vandeventer was spot on, Suwan-
nee starter Greg Bowers (5-2) struggled,
surrendering nine runs in four innings of
work. Reliever Jason Bullock came in and
shut down the Colts, throwing three score-


less innings, but it was too late as the
damage had already been done.
Suwannee (11-6) rallied in the fifth in-
ning, on Greg Swinson solo home run and
Ryan Dasilvais' RBI single scoring Bow-
ers.
Early on, the Bulldogs got to Vandeven-
ter, scoring two runs in the first inning on
a bases loaded two run error from short-
stop Shawn Sanders. Dasilva singled,
Jackson Brown reached on a fielder's
choice and Andrew Schroeder and Trevor
Lister both walked to load the bases.
Matthew Pennington's routine ground
ball to short was overrun by Sanders, al-
lowing Dasilva and Brown to score giving


the Bulldogs an early 2-0 lead.
Gainesville 13, Suwannee 8
Suwannee (11-5) surrendered four leads
in the game, including an 8-7 lead in the
sixth inning, to fall 13-8, March 30 to
Gainesville High.
Gainesville took advantage of three
Suwannee errors, two hit batsmen, a walk
and one hit to score six runs in the bottom
of the sixth inning to rally from behind.
Both teams took turns taking the lead
before Gainesville rallied for good after
trailing 4-2, 6-4 and 7-5.
Suwannee trailed 2-0 early on but ral-
lied back to take a 4-2 lead behind senior
Justin Hicks 2 RBI double but again


Gainesville rallied with back-to-back two
out RBI doubles by Tyler Griffin and Nick
Demasi. The two teams combined for 10
errors, six by the Bulldogs and four by the
Canes.
Santa Fe 6, Suwannee 5 (8 inning)
Trailing 4-0 in the top of the seventh in-
ning, Suwannee (11-4, 3-4) rallied for five
runs to take a temporary 5-4 lead. Santa
Fe (14-1, 7-0) answered back scoring one
in the bottom of the seventh to tie and one
in the eighth, to knock off Suwanee 6-5 in
8 innings March 26 in Alachua. Moses
went six innings giving up four runs and
was relieved by Pennington in the sev-
enth, who earned the loss.

Wildcats on




a roll now


Melody has won three in a row


By Corey Davis

LIVE OAK-After a sub-par first half of the season,
Melody Christian head baseball coach Harvey Williams
is hoping the second half goes much better.
So far so good, as Melody went a perfect 3-0 during
spring break at home to give the Wildcats a lot of confi-
dence heading into the final month of the season.
Melody 10, Hamilton County 4
Against Hamilton County, the Wildcats got a solid
combination of hitting and pitching to hand the Trojans a
10-4 loss March 27 in Live Oak.
Derek Johnson picked up the win going four innings,
striking out seven and surrendering three hits. A.J. Smith,
went 4-for-4 with 2 RBIs and three runs, to lead the
Wildcats offensively. Sean Beaglee went 2-for-4, with
two stolen bases and two runs scored and Jason
Matthews hit his seventh homerun of the season to go
along with 2 RBIs, to pace the Wildcats also.
Melody 3, Georgia Christian 1
Tied 1-1 in the bottom the sixth inning, the Wildcats
rallied for two runs to take a 3-1 win March 29 over
Georgia Christian at home.
Joshua Lessman earned the win after striking out seven
and giving up four hits in six innings, while Cole Whar-
ton got his first save of the season. Smith's RBI double
and Preston Norris' sac fly allowed the Wildcats to score
two runs in the bottom of the sixth to get the win.

Freshman Zach Medeanis' 2 RBI single in the sixth
was the difference in the game as the Wildcats rallied
from a 4-2 deficit scoring four runs in the inning.
"The difference right now is we're not making any er-
rors and we're playing a lot cleaner," Williams said.
The win against Fort White might have been a pro-
gram changer according to Williams.
"Against Fort White we battled back. That was proba-
bly our biggest win of the season. They beat us 10-0 ear-

playing well going into the district tournament,"

Tillman working his



wayto t he show


Due to a misprint when this article was ., i:..;,I,11
published, we are ... ,. ln,. it again here. - Editor

By Corey Davis

LAKELAND-When Florida Southern head baseball
coach Jim Tyrrell makes the call to the pullpen to bring in
his closer, there is usually just one name he calls.
When the game is on the line, Tyrrell calls for his ace
junior right handed pitcher Daniel Tillman.
Tillman, a 2007 Suwannee High graduate, has been the
Moccasins' most consistent player the last two years. His
gutsy performance hasn't gone unnoticed either.
The College Baseball Blog ranked Tillman 90th in its
Pre-Season list of the Top 100 Players in the country,
while Baseball America ranked him the No. 1 Division II
prospect in the nation.
"To be honored as the top prospect in Division II, and
to be considered one of the top closer in the nation, over


all divisions, is pretty crazy to me," Tillman said. "I never
thought it would happen. My parents always told me to do
your best every day and everything would work out and I
guess it has."
Tillman's junior season was a remarkable one, as he
was named to the NCBWA second-team All-South Region
and second-team All-Sunshine State Conference (SSC).
Appearing in 24 games (20 in relief), Tillman was 4-2
with a 3.15 ERA, with 62 strikeouts in 54.1 innings. His
12 saves was a second-best season total in FSC history,
most since Kyle DeYoung had a season-record of 17 in
2005.
Two years ago after completing his sophomore season,
Tillman was named second-team All-South Region,
second-team All-SSC and was also named to the SSC
Commissioner's Honor Roll. Tillman was 3-1, with a 1.80
ERA, striking out 29, with 5 saves in 20 appearances.
Tillman is currently 1-0 on the season with a 3.18 ERA
with 7 saves, 40 strikeouts and 15 walks in 22.2 innings.

In two and half seasons, Tillman has allowed just two
homeruns over his career.
"I have had some consistency problems, waking too
many guys, I have played decent but not as well as I
would have liked," Tillman said.
Just last weekend against Eckerd, Tillman became the
school's all-time save leader with his 24 career save.
"Yeah I set the career saves record last weekend against
Eckerd. That's what I have been working on for 2-3 years
now. I wasn't expecting to be a closer when I got here but
my freshman year I took on that role and really developed
into last year becoming the No. 1 guy. I was shooting for
it, it's a real cool experience. "
His success has been rather surprising somewhat since
he was forced into changing his role on the team moving
from a starter to closer.
"In high school, I was just a starter, making the
transition to closer your dealing with arms and reaction.
Your arm hurts after throwing but you know how handle
your body and how to handle it. I'm the only closer on the
team, I can't throw every day, I only come in when its a
close game."
Tillman has a good variety of pitches that set up others
and keep the hitters off balance.
"My best pitch is definitely my fastball. I have the
ability to get guys out and set up my other pitches like a
slyder and changeup as well, " Tillman said.
At Suwannee, Tillman was a third-team all-state
selection as a junior and senior. He had an ERA of 0.67 in
62 innings as junior and 1.05 as a senior.
"It was a lot of fun, wow you know I have never
thought about it until now when you just mentioned it.
Probably the highlight of my high school career is setting
the all-time ERA record. In my two years, I never won 10
games, never struck out a lot people, but I always worked
hard and got guys out as best as I could," Tillman said.
This past summer, Tillman pitched for Cotuit in the
prestigious Cape Cod League and didn't allow a run the
entire season. Tillman had five saves in 16 games, struck
out 31, walked seven in 22 innings.
"It was a lot of fun, but it was tough in the beginning I
wasn't sure if I was suppose to be there, I felt intimidated.
I come from a small Division II school and your going up
against guys who played in Division I power schools, its
very intimidating. I had to take a step back, you only get
one chance to be here and I turned it around."
Between his play in college and at the Cape, Tillman
started getting noticed from professional scouts.
"What helped me was last year we had a shortstop that
did an outstanding job in the Cape Cod League and was
projected to go in the first three rounds of the draft. My
sophomore year he had lots of exposure by the scouts and
they got to see me for basically 2 1/2 years. "
With scouts beginning to pay him lots of attention
almost daily, Tillman has had to adjust his mindset.
"Recently, I have had to reevaluate my approach about
the draft and handling the scouts. It's a distraction that you

Management of This Condition of the Esophagus
Achalasia is a medical term that describes an abnormal functioning
of the esophagus and lower esophageal sphincter. A breakdown of
nerves in the wall of the esophagus occurs. Normal muscle
contractions that move food through the digestive tract (peristalsis)
are impaired, and the lower esophageal sphincter does not relax
properly. This combination leads to impaired emptying, and can
therefore lead to obstruction of the esophagus. About 1 person in
100,000 each year is affected. Adults between the ages of 25 and 60
years are most commonly affected. Common signs and symptoms
include dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), weight loss, chest pain, and
heartburn. Hiccups also occur commonly in persons with achalasia.
The process of nerve breakdown in the esophageal wall cannot be
stopped. However, treatments that work to improve the functioning of
the esophagus may be prescribed. Nitrates, such as Nitro-Dur and
Nitro-Bid, and calcium channel blockers, such as nifedipine (Adalat,
Procardia), relax the smooth muscle of the lower esophageal
sphincter. Procedures, such as physical dilation of the sphincter and
surgery, also may be performed. Botulinum toxin injection into the
sphincter itself may be administered to decrease pressure.

Tillman working his way to the show


Continued From Page 4B

can't ignore, every game you see a group
of men watching you in the bullpen,
stretching and how you carry yourself and
with their radar guns. I handle it but I
think about helping my team first."
As far as making a decision anytime
soon about whether going pro or coming
back for his senior year, Tillman isn't
ready to make now or anytime soon.
"I will wait till June to decide my
future, I'm not sure what I will do at this
point. I'm very interested in playing
professional ball, I've been looking to it
forever."
Before he can think about the draft,


Tillman is more concerned about leading
his team back to the College World Series
this year after missing it last season.
"Last year we lost in the regional
championship. That was tough, I think this
year we have a lot more ability in the
lineup and a lot more depth to get to the
World Series. We have played well
through the year, but you go through some
tough spots. We just have to stay focused,
in control and full steam ahead to Cary,
N.C."
Currently (26-5), Florida Southern is
second in the SSC, but according to
Tillman has gone through some rough
times lately.
"Its been a tough last couple of weeks,


we haven't played bad, but our bats got
cold and our hitters were going through
slumps," Tillman said.
If Florida Southern is to win another
SSC title, the Moccassins will have to go
through nemesis arch-rival Tampa, which
is undefeated in SSC play.
"We keep telling each other, Tampa will
lose, it's just a matter of when. Tampa vs
Florida Southern is like Florida State vs.
Florida, we hate them a lot, but we have to
take it one game at a time."
Tampa (30-5, 12-0), Florida Southern
(26-5, 6-3), Barry (21-8, 6-3) and Florida
Tech (23-9, 7-8) are all battling for the
conference title.
In the latest Collegiate Baseball


Division II Poll, Tampa is ranked No. 4
just ahead of No. 6 Florida Southern,
while conference foe Florida Tech is
ranked No. 24.
Florida Southern travels to Barry this
weekend April 2-3 in a critical SSC three
game series. Three weeks later, the Mocs
travel to Tampa for a three game series
April 23-24 in a series, that will likely
decide the conference regular season
champion.
If all goes well the rest of the season,
Tillman and the Mocs could host a
regional May 13-17 at selected sites, with
the winners of the regionals advancing to
the Division II World Series May 22-29 in
Cary, N.C.

Extension Cooking School:



A community tradition

^...-

ing School. - Photos: Bill Smedley


In the late 1980s, four or five local UF/IFAS agents,
including the late Meredith Taylor, began a tradition


that has become a staple of the community since then:
the annual Cooking School. At first, they called it the
"Nutritional Educational Program," and that first year
the subject was "dairy." All things milk and calcium
were presented to a gathering of eager learners. A
presentation by the Research Center was also included.
It featured agents from Suwannee, Madison, Taylor and
Jefferson, with the help of the Suwannee HCE. Since


S then, it has become more a shared activity between the
S Suwannee Extension and the HCE.
The Cooking School has continued since then and
has prided itself in demonstrations with education,
nutrition and food safety backgrounds. Some of the
past themes have been about tomatoes, squash, corn,
high fiber, chocolate and stretching your food budget.
lr ' This year's theme will be Florida Cracker Cooking.

Door prizes have always been a part of the school,
although lately a lot of stress has been placed on them.
They began as a way of awarding audience members
for correct answers to questions about nutrition and
cooking methods, and we hope to revive this method of
awarding them in addition to the abundance of door
prizes as always.. A small recipe book that has been
prepared and will be part of the registration packet for
each attendee. Demonstrations of Florida Cracker
recipes, kitchen how-to's, nutrition facts, and a tasting
of many of the recipes in the cookbook will all be part
of the next Florida Cracker Cooking School that will
take place on Thursday, April 29 at 7 p.m. in the
UF/IFAS Extension Office Conference Room. The cost
for each person is $3 to be paid at the door. The doors
will be open at 6:30. The Extension Office is located

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.

By Sally Q. Smith
Member Services
Advent Christian Village

The Arts In Healthcare
at Advent Christian Vil-
lage is pleased to host its
ninth bi-annual Coffee
Concert on Saturday, April
17, at 10 a.m. in Bixler
Chapel, featuring the FSU
Tuba/Euphonium Quartet.
Coffee, hot tea, and pas-
tries will be served prior to
the concert - beginning at
9 a.m. - in Rumph Dining
Room.
The FSU Tuba/Eupho-
nium Quartet is comprised
of one senior undergradu-
ate and three graduate mu-
sic majors at Florida State
University. Daniel Row-
land and Ryan Scherber
play tuba in the group
while Scott Carter and
Jonathan Watkins cover
euphonium. The group
covers a wide variety of
repertoire in several
venues, from the yearly
FSU Prism concert series
to Christmas concerts to
graduate chamber recitals.
Every performance by the
group promises to be ex-
citing and eclectic, cover-
ing the entire gamut from
Mozart to Sousa to Bach
while still mixing in inter-
esting original tuba/eu-
phonium quartet reper-
toire, including the fantas-
tic "POWER" by famed
tuba pedagogue and com-
poser John Stevens. With
this great mix of repertoire
and venues, the FSU
Tuba/Euphonium Quartet
loves showing the world
that the big instruments in
the back row can really
shine as solo and chamber
instruments and not sim-
ply OOM-PAH all day
long!
The ACV Coffee Con-
cert Series takes place on a
bi-annual basis and has
been established in memo-
ry of Mrs. Velma Wilcox.
The purpose of this
memorial endowment is to
specifically support and
foster daytime music con-
certs that take place at
ACV, and they will be
open to the public at no
charge. Please make plans
to attend this very special
event in the life of the arts
here in Dowling Park!

The


By Emily Younker
CNHI News Service

JOPLIN, Mo. - Add "Internet addiction" to the list
of ills now facing a 21st century society.
While the Internet has opened the world to many in
ways never imagined, there is a darker side that is
causing people to withdraw from society and turn to
destructive behaviors.
Examples of Internet addiction include online gam-
bling, gaming and shopping, and obsession with
pornography, blogs, social media and chat rooms.
Vicky Mieseler, vice president of clinical services at
the Ozark Center of Freeman Health System, said the
key to understanding whether an individual has an In-
ternet addiction is determining how much usage is too
much.
"When you're looking at someone who spends a
great deal of time on the Internet, you're trying to de-
termine if they're spending an exorbitant amount of
time doing that as opposed to everyday living," she
said. "If it's causing you a problem in your life, then
it's a problem."
Mieseler said Internet addiction is similar to sub-
stance addictions in that many of the same symptoms
are present.
"If you're more interested in spending time with the
thing you're addicted to than you are with your family
and friends, then that's a symptom," she said. "If
you're preoccupied with the thing you're addicted to,
then that's a symptom. Those things are the same for
any addiction."
Internet addiction can lead to more serious symp-
toms, including health problems from a lack of sun or
exercise, increased senses of loneliness and depression,
and the loss of social skills, Mieseler said. If left un-

treated, Internet addictions can increase the likelihood
that the individual will get divorced or fired, or have
financial, academic or sexual problems, she said.
"(Internet addictions) can be very serious," she said.
"That's your whole life right there."
Whereas treatment for substance addictions focuses
on abstinence, Internet addiction treatment focuses on
abstaining from the specific problem, not necessarily
from the Internet itself. The reason for that, Mieseler
said, is that it's not realistic in today's job market for
an individual to never use the Internet.
"A person who is an alcoholic should never drink
again," she said. "The goal (of Internet addiction treat-
ment) is to never engage in the problematic aspect of
the Internet. If your addiction is centered around social
networking, then our goal for you would be to stop us-
ing Facebook or the other social networking options
available."
Mieseler said anyone can become addicted to the In-
ternet, though certain groups of people are more at
risk.
"Teens are more at risk because, let's face it, they
have been raised in tchlin lh -.1', their entire life," she
said.
Other at-risk groups include people who are immo-
bile or homebound, people who lack social support,
people who suffer from depression or anxiety disor-
ders, and people who have addictive personalities.
Research on Internet addictions is scarce because on-
line technologies are relatively new.
"I think the field of mental health is trying to catch
up, and we're beginning to see new addictions, and
we're having to race against the clock to get programs
in place to meet those needs," Mieseler said.
One of the first large-scale studies conducted on In-
ternet addictions was completed in 2006 by Stanford
University's School of Medicine, which interviewed
2,513 adults in a nationwide telephone survey.
Researchers said 68.9 percent of respondents were

regular Internet users, and one in eight displayed at
least one possible sign of problematic Internet use.
The team, moreover, said:
That 13.7 percent found it hard to stay away from
the Internet for several days at a time.
That 12.3 percent had seen a need to cut back on In-
ternet use at some point.
That 8.7 percent attempted to conceal nonessential
Internet use from family, friends and employers.
That 5.9 percent thought their relationships suffered
as a result of excessive Internet use.
Elias Aboujaoude, the study's lead author, said he
was particularly concerned by the number of people
who hid their nonessential Internet use.
"Obviously something is wrong when people go out
of their way to hide their Internet activity," he said in a
news release. "We often focus on how wonderful the
Internet is - how simple and efficient it can make
things. But we need to consider the fact that it creates
real problems for a subset of people."
Internet usage in general has clearly increased over
the past decade, with 68.7 percent of homes boasting
Internet access in 2009, compared with 41.5 percent in
2000, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Embrace the inner "Diva"


By Teresa Williams

THOMASVILLE, Ga. - The daily hustle and bustle of
job projects, familial obligations, kids' afterschool ac-
tivities and civic or religious events does not leave
much "me" time for today's women.
There just aren't enough hours in the day for all that
and quality girl time.

Time to Upgrade.


The Thomasville Times-Enterprise has a temporary
remedy with the upcoming "Diva Day" on April 10, a
chance for area women to not only get in a few hours of
shopping with other ladies, but also an opportunity to
be a little pampered.
"Diva Day" is the first such event the Times-Enter-
prise has sponsored that includes individual home-based
crafters and businesses, as well as retail," Chris White,
advertising director, said.
"I heard about a similar event geared toward retail
and I wanted to have one that promoted both home-
based businesses and retail," she said. "This is an op-
portunity for our community to come together in one
place and see the best of both worlds, all in one day."
Items expected to be on site during the event include
jewelry, handbags, candles, silver and pewter, scrap-
book items, crochet pieces such as blankets and
afghans, collectible dolls and furniture.
Displays include pool accessories, home decorative
items and health screenings courtesy of Archbold
Memorial Hospital.
"One room will have all the crafts and retail items;
the other room is for health with chiropractors, mas-
sages, nails, health food samples, and screenings,"
White said.
Almeda Simpson, assistant vice-president for clinical
and community outreach at Archbold, said these screen-
ings will include cholesterol, diabetes, blood pressure,
body mass index and vascular. Representatives will also
have various health information available during the
event.
The event is rain or shine, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the
Rose City Best Western Conference Center Grand Ball-
room.
Admission to "Diva Day" is free but items will be for
sale at vendor booths.
Shopping bags will be handed out to participants and
some vendors will also have bags.
A local vendor will be selling barbecue lunches with
proceeds to benefit the Children's Miracle Network.

Uterine fibroid tumors are commonly found in
women in their 30s and 40s. Although they are
usually benign (not cancerous), and generally cause
no symptoms, some fibroids can be troublesome for
women.
Fibroids are solid, fibrous tumors that are found
inside the uterus. These masses can form in a
number of places and are classified according to
their location.
* Intramural: Round fibroids inside of the uterine
wall that can cause the uterus to enlarge as it grows.
* Submucous: Fibroids that occur just below the
lining of the uterus. They can cause menstrual
problems and pain as they grow and move around in
the pelvic area.
* Subserous: These fibroids grow on the outer
wall of the uterus and generally cause no symptoms
unless they interfere with other pelvic organs.
* Interligamentous: Fibroids that grow sideways
between the ligaments that encompass the abdominal
region. These can be very difficult to remove
because of their close proximity to other organs.
* Parasitic: A fibroid that attaches to another
organ.
Fibroids are generally discovered during routine
gynecological exams. A physician will feel a mass

on occasion and order a follow-up ultrasound to
determine what is going on internally. Many times
women do not even know they have fibroids until a
doctor discovers them.
While fibroids can be singular or minute in size,
they generally grow in bunches and may get to be
quite large. Fibroids the size of grapefruits have
been removed, and the largest fibroid ever detected
weighed over 100 pounds.
Although most fibroids do not cause symptoms,
about a quarter of women with the condition report
abnormal bleeding, pain and enlargement of the
uterus. Backaches may also occur if the fibroid
extends toward the backbone.
Treatment for fibroids is generally not done unless
the fibroids cause severe pain or unusual bleeding.
In that case, surgery to remove the tumors
myomectomyy) or the uterus itself (hysterectomy) is
the course of treatment. In most cases, however,
fibroids will grow back even after being removed.
The only permanent way for a woman to rid herself
of fibroids is the eventual hysterectomy. This should
be considered if fibroids are continually troublesome
and after a woman has completed her family, as a
hysterectomy eliminates the possibility of future
conception.
For more information on uterine fibroids, consult
with your gynecologist or family practitioner.

Embrace the



inner "Diva"


Continued From Page 2

Meigs resident Dorcas
Miller has a home-based
business, Lost Creek Can-
dles. She said her children
and husband all help out
in the venture, mostly
done in the family's base-
ment.
"We've been doing this
about four years now and
it is mainly a word of
mouth business but we
sometimes go to little
craft shows," Miller said.
"I saw the 'Diva Day' ad
in the paper asking for
vendors and thought it
would be something new.
"I don't know how it is
going to go but I am ex-
cited about it. I think it is
going to be neat."
Miller enjoys meeting

people and having fun
with her craft at the same
time.
"When I meet someone,
I try to pick out which
scent they will like," she
said. "Everyone has their
own unique way of
smelling and scents they
like."
White encouraged local
ladies to bring a few of
their girlfriends and take
advantage of the day.
"'Diva Day' is just the
outing needed, a place to
shop, shop, shop," she
said. "We will have some-
thing for everyone,
whether you're a conserv-
ative woman, contempo-
rary, young or mature.
Vendors will have prod-
ucts to bring out the
'diva' in you."

Q: Does dental health carry implications beyond the mouth? A: Yes. Studies have shown that taking good care of your teeth and gums can lower your risk for heart disease. Researchers have found that people who suffer from gum disease, also called periodontal disease, are twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease as those without gum disease. The bacteria that breed under the gums can spread to other parts of the body, including the blood vessels of the heart. Also, ear lier this year, the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology cited the case of a California woman who had a stillborn birth. Doctors determined that the baby's stomach and lungs contained the same strain of oral bacter ia that the 35-year-old mother had in her untreated gum disease. It's not uncommon for pregnant women to exper ience bl eeding gums as a result of hormonal changes. If you're in that situation, check w ith your dentist about the case of the blee ding. For the rest of us, it's a good idea to talk with our dentists and our physicians about the importance of oral health in overall well-being.Presented as a service to the community by 571101-FASK DR.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Odd Even U U new new Odd EvenU U new new WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7, 2010 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 6ANorth FloridaBy Jim Holmes I was playing on the Internet the other day (always a dangerous thing for me to do) and came across a statistic that knocked me on my heels. A Web page entitled Mail-on-Line claims that there is a 2005 study showing the average British woman spends nearly two-years of her life (650 days to be exact) caring for her hair! I couldn't find anything on US women, but I suspect it might easily be that much time or even more. Of course, we men are responsible, whether we want to admit it or not. We are unfortunately visually-stimulated creatures; otherwise we really would be buying Playboy magazine strictly for the articles. I couldn't find anything on how much time men spend on their hair, but a Nielsen study shows that 78 percent of Americans believe men are now more interested in personal grooming than they used to be. I guess that shouldn't come as any great surprise, as we live in a society that seems to worship appearance. I don't think of myself as being particularly vain, yet I have to admit that when I was a kid, my hair was something I thought about ... a lot! As I think I told you before, if I could have had an Elvis "duck tail" I would have, but my father insisted I wear my hair short, in what we called back then a "flat top." Although I hated the style, it didn't mean I wasn't concerned about how it looked. So, every morning, I'd get up and slap on the "flattop wax." (Today, I suspect it was just lard with pink food coloring.) And a little dab WOULDN'Tdo! If my hair had to be short, I still wanted it to stand "at attention" ... so I heaped on that wax. I suspect after an hour, I could have walked into any hard hat zone with complete confidence that no dropped monkey wrench presented my encased cranium any danger. Today, I WANTmy hair cut short. To me the perfect haircut is one I only have to comb once every three days ... even with a daily washing. My wife, who has also been my barber for nearly 40 years, is only too happy to oblige. As a result, what she may lack in hair styling technique, she more than makes up for in enthusiasm. I have noticed however, that with each passing day, hair seems to crop up in places where it didn't grow previously ... and not grow at all in others. I mean, when the dickens did I start getting hair on my ear lobs. Mind you, not IN the ears, but ON THE OUTSIDE. Assuming I wanted them, with a little patience, I could braid myself earrings. On the other hand, the crown of my head is now as bare as a baby's bottom and just as pink. From behind, I look more and more like Robin Hood's Friar Tuck, which is only fitting, since my eyebrows are now as wild and thick as Sherwood Forest. But most disturbing to me is the mass quantity of hair that now erupts from my nose! I have a theory about why it is so plentiful. I'm firmly convinced it has to do with my bald spot. You see, as I've gotten older, I know my brain has dried up. TVhas proven to me that I am no longer smarter than a 5th grader. And when things dry up, they get smaller, so there is now space in my skull that previously did not exist. The conclusion: my scalp's missing hair isn't falling out. As a self defense mechanism to escape my wife's energetic and very sharp scissors ... it has become ingrown and is now making a mad dash, if you will, out my schnoz! Jim Holmes lives in Live Oak. Members of the Suwannee Democrat editorial board are Myra C.Regan, publisher, and Robert Bridges, editor.Our View, which appears in Friday editions of the Democrat, is formed by that board.Suwannee DemocratMYRA C.REGAN Publisher ROBERT BRIDGES Editor THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLERViewpoints/Opinions It's about hair Here's the question asked in my September 2000 column titled "It's Time To Part Company": "If one group of people prefers government control and management of people's lives and another prefers liberty and a desire to be left alone, should they be required to fight, antagonize one another, risk bloodshed and loss of life in order to impose their preferences or should they be able to peaceably part company and go their separate ways?" The problem that our nation faces is very much like a marriage where one partner has broken, and has no intention of keeping, the marital vows. Of course, the marriage can remain intact and one party tries to impose his will on the other and engage in the deviousness of oneupmanship. Rather than submission by one party or domestic violence, a more peaceable alternative is separation. I believe we are nearing a point where there are enough irreconcilable differences between those Americans who want to control other Americans and those Americans who want to be left alone that separation is the only peaceable alternative. Just as in a marriage, where vows are broken, our human rights protections guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution have been grossly violated by a government instituted to protect them. The Democratcontrolled Washington is simply an escalation of a process that has been in full stride for at least two decades. There is no evidence that Americans who are responsible for and support constitutional abrogation have any intention of mending their ways. You say, "Williams, what do you mean by constitutional abrogation?" Let's look at just some of the magnitude of the violations. Article I, Section 8 of our Constitution lists the activities for which Congress is authorized to tax and spend. Nowhere on that list is authority for Congress to tax and spend for: prescription drugs, Social Security, public education, farm subsidies, bank and business bailouts, food stamps and other activities that represent roughly two-thirds of the federal budget. Neither is there authority for congressional mandates to the states and people about how they may use their land, the speed at which they can drive, whether a library has wheelchair ramps and the gallons of water used per toilet flush. The list of congressional violations of both the letter and spirit of the Constitution is virtually without end. Our derelict Supreme Court has given Congress sanction to do anything upon which they can muster a majority vote. James Madison, the acknowledged father of the Constitution, explained in Federalist Paper No. 45: "The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce. ... The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives and liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement and prosperity of the State." Americans who wish to live free have several options. We can submit to those who have constitutional contempt and want to run our lives. We can resist, fight and risk bloodshed and death in an attempt to force America's tyrants to respect our liberties and human rights. We can seek a peaceful resolution of our irreconcilable differences by separating. Some independence movements, such as our 1776 war with England and our 1861 War Between the States, have been violent, but they need not be. In 1905, Norway seceded from Sweden; Panama seceded from Columbia (1903), and West Virginia from Virginia (1863). Nonetheless, violent secession can lead to great friendships. England is probably our greatest ally. The bottom-line question for all of us is: Should we part company or continue trying to forcibly impose our wills on one another? My preference is a restoration of the constitutional values of limited government that made us a great nation. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University.

BIBLE VERSEThis is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. 1 John 3:16 By Dan Danner The long debate over healthcare reform has ended, leaving many small business owners more confused than ever over what to expect. But they know one thing-they'll be paying for it for years to come. The package won't be fully implemented until 2018. However, there are important provisions that will be effective this year, in 2011 and 2012 that entrepreneurs need to begin planning for now. The changes largely involve new taxes, fees and mandates on individuals and small business. In 2010, a temporary tax credit will be available for a limited number of firms who provide qualified health coverage. However, the credit puts small business owners through a series of complicated tests to determine the amount of the credit. Only firms with 10 employees or less will receive the full credit. For firms with 11-25 employees, the credit is reduced per employee. Firms with more than 25 employees will get no credit at all. In addition, only firms who pay their workers an average of $25,000 or less are eligible for the full credit. The credit is reduced as the average wage goes up, stopping when it reaches $50,000. Also, only firms that cover 50 percent or more of insurance costs will be eligible. Even if your business is one of the 12 percent that will qualify, the credit is only available for six years. In the meantime, other provisions that will drive up costs include an assault on one particular industry, a 10 percent tax on indoor tanning services begins July 1. Beginning in 2011, new changes take effect that will increase costs and limit choices. Those changes include: . New limits on HSAs and FSAsConsumers will be prohibited from using health savings accounts and flexible spending funds to purchase non-prescribed items, including over-the-counter medication (except insulin). . Federally subsidized long-term care-Small businesses may voluntarily participate in a new long-term care program. Participating firms' employees will be automatically enrolled and subject to payroll deductions unless they choose to opt out. This program means more paperwork and will almost certainly cost far more than what the deductions will cover. . Abrand-name drug tax-Manufacturers and importers of brandname drugs will pay a tax of $2.5 billion in 2011, $3 billion per year for 2012 through 2016, $3.5 billion for 2017, $4.2 billion for 2018, and $2.8 billion for 2019 and thereafter. This tax is certain to be passed along to consumers. In 2012, small business owners will face a tremendous new burden. They will have to send to the IRS a Form 1099 for each and every business-to-business transaction of $600 or more. We expect that the IRS will hire as many as 12,000 new auditors. Further out, we'll see new taxes, an expensive, federally mandated minimum benefits package, and additional complex mandates on individuals and employers who will face penalties if they don't comply. In the meantime, small business owners will struggle trying to gauge the costs and understand the impact of a new law they neither wanted nor asked for, rather than the solutions that would actually help them cope with the rising costs of healthcare. No doubt when November comes, small business owners will remember who forced this reform on them and cast their vote accordingly at the ballot box.

She succeeds Robert Wineberg, who led a community campaign to support the opening of Haven's Suwannee Valley Hospice Care Center in January of 2007. "Bob did a marvelous job," Tyler said. "He created many opportunities for the community to be involved with Haven. I am delighted to be able to serve and will be continuing his work." Aresident of Branford since 1984 and the first school nurse in Branford, at BHS, Tyler joined Haven in 2008 as assistant administrator of Haven's services in the tri-counties area, based in Chiefland. She joined Haven's Lake City team last March. Prior to Haven, she had served as administrator of the Veterans Domiciliary in Lake City for 17 years, where she started as director of nursing. AU.S. Army veteran, she also worked at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Lake City. She holds a bachelor of science degree in nursing from the University of South Florida. Haven Hospice serves people and their communities affected by life-limiting illness and loss by providing comprehensive, compassionate care, while respecting each person's needs, beliefs and wishes. Its services include programs to educate and support those who face challenging circumstances-each available at no charge to those who need them.

Polly Tyler was Branford's first school nurse Submitted When Jody Waldron's mother passed away in South Dakota a few years ago, she had hospice care. Jody was with her, and the experience changed her life. "I knew then that being a hospice nurse was what I wanted to do," said Jody, an O'Brien resident who has lived in the Suwannee Valley for 10 years. And thanks to Jody's initiative, Haven Hospice helped her achieve her dream of becoming a hospice nurse. She began by volunteering at Haven's Suwannee Valley Care Center and then enrolled in and excelled as a student in the nursing program at Lake City Community College. Haven offered her a nursing scholarship, which also gave Jody the opportunity to observe Haven's nursing staff at work during each of her semesters. She graduated in May of 2009 and a month later became a full-time Haven Hospice registered nurse. "She comes to us so highly qualified that it's a delight to work with her," said Polly Tyler, administrator of Haven Hospice in Lake City. Haven also took steps to ensure that Jody has all the support she needed-with no fewer than four seasoned Haven registered nurses assigned to teach and guide her.

Students from area high schools come to participate in many different disciplines that the contest has to offer. Forestry, Wildlife, Current Issues, Aquatics, and Soil are all part of the contest and the students need to have an understanding of the fundamentals of these subjects in order to score average on the disciplines. This year there were 18 teams comprised of 89 students that participated from Suwannee High School, Branford High School, and Fort White High School. The Suwannee FFA came out first in the total competition with a slim lead of only 17 points over Fort White High School. The third place team was Suwannee High School's Team #6. The Florida Envirothon is an annual competition in which winning regional teams compete for recognition and prizes by demonstrating their knowledge of environmental science and natural resources management. The teams, each consisting of four to five high school aged students, exercise their training and problem-solving skills in a competition centered on four universal testing categories (soil/land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, and wildlife) and a current environmental issue.

Well folks, the team at Visceral Games (who you may remember as the developers of Dead Space) has found such inspiration: say hello to Dante's Inferno, loosely based on the first part "The Divine Comedy", a poemGAMETIMEVisceral Games did an amazing job of creating fitting locations and demons to fill the nine circles of Hell. It gets nasty quite often, so you have been warned. Dante's Infernowritten by Dante Alighieri. Before I go deeper into details, I should warn readers: Inferno is definitely not a game for the weak of stomach. For those of you who don't know the story, it follows Dante as he travels through Hell to free the love of his life. Needless to say, Visceral Games did an amazing job of creating fitting locations and demons to fill the nine circles of Hell. It gets nasty quite often, so you have been warned. All right, for those of you still with me, allow me to flesh out the story a little more. The titular character Dante is a crusader in the Third Crusades, who gets attacked and manages to fight off Death to return home. Unfortunately for the hero, however, he finds that his father and his one true love (Beatrice) slain. As if that wasn't bad enough, Beatrice's spirit appears to tell him that she is being dragged into Hell and it is because of him. Furious and determined to redeem himself and his love, Dante follows her down into the flames. As I said before, the disturbed folks over at Visceral did a creative job of showing a believable and sick Hell. Every level of Hell has its own look to it, and each monster is twisted about to fit whatever sin they have been condemned for. The level of detail in the environment and the beasties is definitely one of Inferno's high points. Luckily for players, Dante is easily able to fight these demons thanks to some very solid controls. You have separate buttons for light attacks, heavy attacks and ranged attacks. Jumping can be off at times, but it hardly becomes a problem during combat. If the controls seem familiar, well, you've probably played a God of War game or two. Still, Inferno could've picked a worse game to copy; the fighting is fun, isn't that what matters? The game does try to separate itself from other similar games by including a Holy and Unholy path. There are certain demons you can perform finishing moves on, and what type of finishing move you do affects what kind of experience you get. Absolving them earns you Holy experience while Punishing them nets you a brutal finishing kill and Unholy points. Upgrading these paths boosts the strength of your weapons (Holy strengthens your Cross, Unholy boosts your Scythe), and you can buy new combos, health and manna boosts, etc. You can even "customize" Dante further by equipping him with various Relics; each with their own unique boosts and requirements. So with a story told through slick CG (computer generated) and animated videos, you'd think there'd be a lot to go through. Unfortunately, a lot of the areas feel underdeveloped while others (Looking at you, Greed) seem unnecessarily long. It's a shame; I was hoping for more as I reached the top-tier levels of power and was able to annihilate my foes. Hopefully the upcoming DLC will further extend the game's playtime. In the end, however, Dante's Inferno is a decent game. There are quite a few memorable, and brutal, moments coupled with great gameplay and an imaginative Hell. If you can stomach it, this a rather macabre treat of violence and well-acted storytelling. Inferno gets a B; you know, The Divine Comedy was a three part play. Could this be the start of a new trilogy? I hope so! Cody Webb lives in Live Oak.

More than 25,000 email messages and phone calls have been sent to legislators and the governor's office in Tallahassee asking the state to restore library funding. Suwannee's libraries receive about half their funding from the state. Last year Suwannee County received $515,267 in state aid. The Suwannee River Regional Library's main Web page at www.neflin.org/srrl/ has pre-written letters that can be emailed to legislators to ask that funding be restored. There is also a phone, address and email list available for legislators and the governor's office.Big cuts loom for library Continued From Page 1A both criminal and civil law. Kennon has handled and continues to handle all types of cases that would be handled by the County Court. His practice has allowed him to gain extensive experience in areas such as misdemeanor criminal law, small claims matters, landlord/tenant cases and general civil matters. In fact, his entire legal experience has been focused on handling a broad spectrum of cases. In the age of computers and technology, Kennon will maintain an accessible office utilizing not only modern technology, but also the "tried and true" old-fashioned telephone, he notes. Elected officials of Suwannee County must be expected to be available to the citizens not only from 8:00 to 5:00, but at other reasonable hours and he is committed to providing this type of access. Kennon says the experience of handling civil cases from both sides has allowed him to appreciate the importance of a fair and impartial hearing. Both sides in a lawsuit must be given the opportunity to present their issues to the court and this will be done within the parameters of the law. Every citizen leaving a Court proceeding must know that the Judge has listened to them and has considered their evidence and arguments. The final aspect of a legal proceeding is the rendering of the judge's decision. Kennon is committed to making his decisions in a timely manner and in such a manner that the participants will understand how and why the decision was rendered. Kennon was born and raised in Suwannee County. After graduating from Suwannee High School in 1983, he attended Lake City Community College and graduated in 1985 with an Associate of Arts degree and earning the Magna Cum Laude Honor. He graduated from the University of Florida in 1987 with a Bachelor of Arts degree with an emphasis in criminology and following in the family tradition, graduated from the University of Florida, College of Law with Honors. After graduation, Kennon had the privilege of practicing with Darby, Peele, Bowdoin & Payne, P.A. under the guidance of Rod Bowdoin and Blair Payne, where he learned his litigation skills. From these lawyers, Todd learned to handle both civil and criminal cases. Todd then spent three years with the law firm of Brannon, Brown, Haley, Robinson & Bullock, P.A. In 2005, Kennon and his partners formed the law firm of Robinson, Kennon & Kendron, P.A. During his legal career, Kennon has been involved in both the local and Third Circuit Bar Associations. From 2002 to 2003, he chaired the Third Circuit Grievance Committee and also served as the Third Circuit Representative of The Florida Bar, Young Lawyer's Division, from 1992-1996. Kennon is currently a Supreme Court Certified Family Law Mediator and has completed the training to serve as a Court appointed Arbitrator. Community service is also an important part of Kennon's life, as he has served as a softball coach for his daughter's team and on the boards of such charitable organizations as the Association for Retarded Citizens and as the attorney for the Columbia County Senior Services. Also, Kennon is a member of the Suwannee Quarterback Club, the Rotary Club of Live Oak and the Suwannee River Sportsman Club.

"The Department was only going to proceed under the one criminal charge related to the insurance industry, which we don't dispute," Gallagher said. "It would only need to be heard formally under the department if there were no other related factors." However, by choosing to go the route of an informal hearing, she said, "My client will get the chance to argue his case and be given the opportunity to speak and ask for leniency." Gallagher opened up about what it is Bullock is fighting for, much of which pertains to an earlier decision he made to accept a guilty plea in criminal court. "I think that he made the plea to resolve the criminal charges, but did not fully understand the impact it would have on his professional license and even his family." As it stands, his license has not been affected, however. Gallagher said that she could not speculate on what he was told by his legal council in the criminal case, but that "it's not uncommon for someone in a license relatedcriminal case to later face discipline in an administrative hearing; I don't think Bullock knew that was coming when he accepted the plea agreement." The informal hearing to come will grant Bullock the opportunity to not only address the other charges surrounding his felony case, but to make sure that any other factors are considered, Gallagher said. She doesn't expect the process to take much longer. "I could image they'll set the case for a hearing date within the next couple of weeks." Bullock was arrested in January 2009 for insurance fraud and two counts of false claim and scheme to defraud. He was originally arrested three times in 2007 on charges including grand theft, forgery, fraud, embezzlement, cheating and taking money from customers and failing to purchase insurance policies. Bullock pleaded guilty last June to grand theft, felony fraud and insurance fraud.Bullock license hearing canceledContinued From Page 1A found O'Hara in an apartment with a single gunshot wound.

And, Chandler says, most of his featured work will be scenes of Suwannee County. "All the serious work I've done over the past few years has been focused on Suwannee," said Chandler. Chandler, who graduated from Suwannee High School in 1999, has always liked photography, but only delved into it while in college. He was in his first year at the University of Florida learning building construction when a friend's camera caught his eye. "I ended up just taking pictures on the side with my friend's camera," Chandler said. "I got way more interested in taking photos than what I was studying." So after changing his major to fine arts and graduating in 2005, he started on his graduate degree. In 2008 he was named Tampa's Photo Laureate, the sixth person to hold the post. Chandler was given $25,000 to shoot photos around Tampa, where much of his work can be seen today, hanging in places such as Tampa City Hall. Chandler's work over the past few years has focused mainly on "people's relationship with the natural environment" and how people use those settings in a recreational way. He said he likes "contemporary portraitures of work. I like documented style photography." That's one reason Chandler uses Suwannee County as a backdrop. "I'm interested in the culture here. I'm from the area so I'm really interested in that landscape." Chandler calls his work "almost autobiographical" in a way "because I have a lot of memories here myself. It's so beautiful to me." To get the right shot, Chandler said he would see a picture "start to emerge in my head" would ask permission to get the shot and then "carry this massive (camera) with me." He said the camera works as an icebreaker. It takes him a few minutes to set the cumbersome device up, and by that time he has opened up a dialogue with folks nearby. "I talk to people and get to know them, I get to ease them and by the time it's all set up they're ready to take a picture," he said. "People have been pretty receptive. You think people would be weirded out but they're not." Chandler will then throw a blanket over him and the back of the camera and take several pictures; some he keeps, others won't make the cut. Chandler said his Suwannee project was put on hold due to the cold weather, but said he'll pick back up shortly. "I really want my work to be shown around Suwannee County more," said Chandler. In December, Chandler will once again show in Miami at the Miami Art Basel. The Art Basel, according to its Web site, is a showing of "more than 250 galleries from North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa" with over 2,000 artists. Well-known artists such as Chuck Close, Ingar Dragset and Claire Fontaine have showed their works at the Basel. "All New York City galleries as well as all major galleries pack up their stuff and head to the Basel. It's a really good way to get noticed," said Chandler, whose work is represented by the Mindy Solomon Gallery in St. Petersburg. When Chandler isn't shooting portraits he is teaching photography at the University of South Florida and The Art Institute of Tampa as an adjunct professor. He said his hopes are to one day be a full time tenured professor and to have his name recognizable in the art world.

In conjunction, the District has produced a series of articles to promote conservation and highlight simple water-saving tips that anyone can follow. This article features Florida Friendly Landscaping (FFL) practices. The District began promoting year-round conservation in January when it rolled out its water conservation rules for landscape irrigation. Under the landscape irrigation rule, watering is allowed once per week during Standard Time and twice per week during Daylight Saving Time, but not between the hours of 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Residents and others may choose which days of the week to water. Sound restrictive? By following a few simple steps, you might be surprised to know that it's possible to cultivate a beautiful landscape without exceeding irrigation limits. The District partners with UF/IFAS and encourages the implementation of FFL. Following FFLpractices can help you achieve an attractive, low maintenance landscape that uses less water, fertilizer and pesticides. FFLemphasizes nine main principles that protect the environment. This article will highlight five of those that help conserve water and protect our springs and rivers. RIGHT PLANT,RIGHT PLACE áChoose low-maintenance plants that will adapt to your site's soil, light and water conditions. áGroup plants with similar water and maintenance needs together. áUse grass only where it's functional, such as play areas for children or pets. áAvoid using invasive exotics. WATER EFFICIENTLY áMost Florida-friendly landscapes can thrive on rainfall alone. áFor lawns, 1/2"3/4" of water per application is enough. áUse rain gauges, soil moisture sensors, automatic shutoff devices on sprinklers, dripor micro-irrigation systems and rain barrels to irrigate more efficiently. FERTILIZE APPROPRIATELY áUse slow-release fertilizer and don't over-water after applying. áDon't fertilize when heavy rain is predicted. Excess rainfall and irrigation will wash fertilizer into our waterways. REDUCE STORMWATER RUNOFF áSweep grass clippings, fertilizer and soil onto the lawn so they won't wash into storm drains. áUse mulch, bricks, gravel or other porous materials for walkways, driveways and patios. PROTECT THE WATERFRONT If you live along a shoreline: áEstablish a 20'-40'foot "no fertilizerno pesticide" buffer zone along the shoreline. áPlant a buffer zone of low-maintenance plants between your lawn and shoreline. Conservation is an important component in meeting our current water needs and preserving our water supplies for years to come. Following FFLpractices helps us be waterwise in meeting this goal.

Several things work against men. They tend to smoke and drink more than women; they don't seek medical help as often as women. Some men define themselves by their work, which can add to stress. There are also health conditions that only affect men, such as prostate cancer. African American and Hispanic males tend to be more prone to certain diseases and on average are less likely to seek regular medical care. Many of the major health risks that men face like colon cancer or heart disease can be prevented and treated with early diagnosis. Screening tests can find diseases early, when they are easier to treat. It is important to have regular checkups and screenings. It's never too late to start taking better care of your health. * Make eating healthy and being active a part of your daily routine. * Get screening tests on schedule. * Look out for signs of health problems like diabetes or depression. * Quit smoking and drink only in moderation * Try a green salad instead of fries. * Drink water instead of soda or sweet tea. * Cut back on the salt Ahealthy diet and daily physical activity can help lower your: * Blood pressure * Blood sugar * Cholesterol * Weight Keeping these numbers down can help protect you from diabetes and heart disease. Do everything you can to protect your health. Don't be embarrassed to talk about your health. Remember: * All men have a prostate. As you get older, you are more likely to have prostate problems. * All men over 50 years old need to be tested for colorectal cancer. * Most men feel stressed, anxious, or depressed from time to time. If these feelings last for more than two weeks, talk to your doctor about it. * Get your blood pressure checked at least every 2 years. * Talk to a doctor about when and how often to get your cholesterol checked. Doctors recommend that most men check their cholesterol at least once every 5 years. * Get tested for colorectal cancer if you are over 50. Ask a doctor what type of screening test is right for you.

Little Tony liked to call me Brother Tom and didn't shake my hand unless a man hug went with it. There was nothing little about Little Tony. He always weighed about 200, that could be 201 or 241. He had a big smile, a great laugh and a love of life. He died on his 33rd birthday. Little Tony carried the ball for the Bulldogs about 15 years ago. He didn't run around too many people, he ran over and through them. He was one of those guys who always wanted the ball. He would be a Bulldog forever. At his viewing I paid my respects to his sister Kaffa, a great Suwannee athlete, and his brother Rock, another great Bulldog. His nephews Devon and Delwynn Allen, Jarvis Herring and Andra Davis all filled the first pew with his parents, Percy and Lovella. Certainly a family steeped in Bulldog tradition.

The team took fourth place at its first tournament this spring, and recently competed March 27-28 in Gainesville at the USSSAStampede Shootout. The team was small in number with many members out, but fought hard to bring home the trophy for second place in the boys 16-under division. The Storm won their first game 66-59 against a Division 3 team from Gainesville but fell in the second game 79-68 to a Division 1 team from Ocala, the BGCMC Magic. The next day the team played three exhausting games and earned their way back up the bracket to the championship game. The Storm beat the D2 Jax Suns 54-22 and the D2 Citrus Wildcats 72-43, before once again facing the Magic, who were victorious with a score of 60-50.

The team scored 17 three-pointers, divided evenly among six of the seven players on the roster. Scoring was led by Jimmie Taylor (17), Marcus Lane (15), guard DeAngelo Ross (16), and DeAndre Devore (10). Ross had an outstanding game off the bench shooting 67% from the field while sinking four three-point shots. Players who received tournament team awards were Taylor (MVP) and Lane, who received the Hustler Award for his outstanding effort on the court. The team's trophy is currently on display at Kay's Cuban-American Restaurant on US 90. The Suwannee Storm is classified as a Division 3 team. Teams from Division 3 are limited to students who are all from the same school, but most teams the Storm faces throughout the state are D1 and D2 composite teams with accomplished players from many different schools and regions.

North Marion 9, Suwannee 4 North Marion freshman pitcher Garrison Vandeventer struck out eight and walked three, in addition to hitting a solo home run to lead the Colts to a 9-4 win over Suwannee April 1 at Buchholz. While Vandeventer was spot on, Suwannee starter Greg Bowers (5-2) struggled, surrendering nine runs in four innings of work. Reliever Jason Bullock came in and shut down the Colts, throwing three scoreless innings, but it was too late as the damage had already been done. Suwannee (11-6) rallied in the fifth inning, on Greg Swinson solo home run and Ryan Dasilva’s'RBI single scoring Bowers. Early on, the Bulldogs got to Vandeventer, scoring two runs in the first inning on a bases loaded two run error from shortstop Shawn Sanders. Dasilva singled, Jackson Brown reached on a fielder's choice and Andrew Schroeder and Trevor Lister both walked to load the bases. Matthew Pennington's routine ground ball to short was overrun by Sanders, allowing Dasilva and Brown to score giving the Bulldogs an early 2-0 lead. Gainesville 13, Suwannee 8 Suwannee (11-5) surrendered four leads in the game, including an 8-7 lead in the sixth inning, to fall 13-8, March 30 to Gainesville High. Gainesville took advantage of three Suwannee errors, two hit batsmen, a walk and one hit to score six runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to rally from behind. Both teams took turns taking the lead before Gainesville rallied for good after trailing 4-2, 6-4 and 7-5. Suwannee trailed 2-0 early on but rallied back to take a 4-2 lead behind senior Justin Hicks 2 RBI double but again Gainesville rallied with back-to-back two out RBI doubles by Tyler Griffin and Nick Demasi. The two teams combined for 10 errors, six by the Bulldogs and four by the Canes. Santa Fe 6, Suwannee 5 (8 inning) Trailing 4-0 in the top of the seventh inning, Suwannee (11-4, 3-4) rallied for five runs to take a temporary 5-4 lead. Santa Fe (14-1, 7-0) answered back scoring one in the bottom of the seventh to tie and one in the eighth, to knock off Suwanee 6-5 in 8 innings March 26 in Alachua.

By Corey Davis LIVE OAK-After a sub-par first half of the season, Melody Christian head baseball coach Harvey Williams is hoping the second half goes much better. So far so good, as Melody went a perfect 3-0 during spring break at home to give the Wildcats a lot of confidence heading into the final month of the season. Melody 10, Hamilton County 4 Against Hamilton County, the Wildcats got a solid combination of hitting and pitching to hand the Trojans a 10-4 loss March 27 in Live Oak. Derek Johnson picked up the win going four innings, striking out seven and surrendering three hits. A.J. Smith, went 4-for-4 with 2 RBIs and three runs, to lead the Wildcats offensively. Sean Beaglee went 2-for-4, with two stolen bases and two runs scored and Jason Matthews hit his seventh homerun of the season to go along with 2 RBIs, to pace the Wildcats also. Melody 3, Georgia Christian 1 Tied 1-1 in the bottom the sixth inning, the Wildcats rallied for two runs to take a 3-1 win March 29 over Georgia Christian at home. Joshua Lessman earned the win after striking out seven and giving up four hits in six innings, while Cole Wharton got his first save of the season. Smith's RBI double and Preston Norris'sac fly allowed the Wildcats to score two runs in the bottom of the sixth to get the win. Melody 6, Fort White 4 To cap the week, Melody knocked off Fort White 6-4 March 30 in Live Oak. Wharton picked up the win after striking out six and allowing no runs in four innings. Freshman Zach Medeanis'2 RBI single in the sixth was the difference in the game as the Wildcats rallied from a 4-2 deficit scoring four runs in the inning. "The difference right now is we're not making any errors and we're playing a lot cleaner," Williams said. The win against Fort White might have been a program changer according to Williams. "Against Fort White we battled back. That was probably our biggest win of the season. They beat us 10-0 earlier in the season. Hopefully we can continue this momentum after spring break," Williams said. Up next Melody (7-8) carried their three-game winning streak to Mandarin Christian on Monday and returns to the field again April 12 traveling to Perry at 7 p.m. to take on Taylor County. "We sure are confident, this is what I want to be doing, playing well going into the district tournament," Williams said. "Our pitchers are healthy, we have no excuses. I tell them all the time it only takes one win in the district tournament, one win is the whole key of getting into the regional playoffs."CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Odd Even U U new new Odd EvenU U new new WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7, 2010 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 3BSPORTS North Florida Name _________________________________________________ Address _______________________________________________ City________________________ State __________ Zip ________ Phone______________________ CLIP AND MAIL TO:Suwannee DemocratPO Box 370, Live Oak, FL 32064How EZ Pay Benefits You1.

Continued From Page 1B We even had our water boy, Dalton Allen. I am not sure how to say this but I'll try. I sat shoulder to shoulder with #54 weeping together at the funeral home Thursday afternoon. Suddenly I was reminded just how fragile and precious life could be. I am pretty sure we both were. Saturday night when the funeral was over and we ran out of tears, I did some reflection. Little Tony hadn't played at Langford Stadium in a decade and a half. His viewing and funeral included coaches and teammates who had played with him, after him, and before him. Once you put that uniform on and you become team, you become family. I was reminded just how deep that bond can run. I was proud to be a Suwannee Bulldog when we won state championships. Saturday we buried one of our own, we buried a brother. Saturday night I went to bed a little prouder being a Suwannee Bulldog.SPORTS COMMENTARYLittle TonySportaboutBy Tom Daniels "We could be done in one pitch or play all night I suppose," Chambers said. "It's a shame we couldn't finish the game then, but it's a big game for us, it determines the district tournament seeding." Chambers commented that the game was dominated by both pitchers as Boyette struck out 12 and gave up two hits, while Santa Fe's Morgan Shelby struck out 10 and allowed two hits. After the Santa Fe game Monday, Suwannee (8-7, 2-5) hosted Baker County Tuesday April 6, hosts Taylor County Thursday April 8 at 6 p.m. and travels to Lafayette Friday April 9 at 7 p.m. Madison 4, Suwannee 0 Madison County got two home runs off sophomore pitcher Tinsley Smith on its way to a 4-0 win over visiting Suwannee (8-7) in Madison March 24. Freshman Jessie Tenbroeck was 2-for-4 to lead the Bulldogs, who managed only five hits on the night. "We didn't get the hits we needed," Chambers said. "This came right off the big win over Columbia and I also played a lot of the younger girls, which had a lot to do with it." Suwannee 11, Columbia 7 Suwannee put together 16 hits and 11 runs in a shocking 11-7 win March 23 over host arch-rival Columbia. Seven of the nine girls had two hits each, while two others had one. Leading the Bulldogs (8-6) offensively was junior Jamie Summers, who went 2-for-2 with a home run and junior Brittany Shearer, who went 2-for-3 with a home run. Also contributing in the 16 hit attack was freshman Destiny Perrin (2for-4), junior Maegan Olson (2-for-4), sophomore Nicole Roper (2-for-4), junior Emily Ross (2-for4) and Tenbroeck (2-for5). Junior Marshanna Boyette earned the win going all seven innings, allowing five hits and seven runs. Williston 7, Suwannee 2 Roper was 2-for-4 and Summers was 2-for-4, in a 7-2 loss March 19 in Live Oak dropping the Bulldogs to 7-6 overall and 25 in District 5-3Aplay. "We made a few mistakes in the field against Williston," Chambers said. Suwannee 12, Hamilton County 1 Smith got the win allowing just one hit and one run in Suwannee's 12-1 win March 18 over host Hamilton County.

Pharmacy & Your Health 584654-FManagement of This Condition of the EsophagusAchalasia is a medical term that describes an abnormal functioning of the esophagus and lower esophageal sphincter. A breakdown of nerves in the wall of the esophagus occurs. Normal muscle contractions that move food through the digestive tract (peristalsis) are impaired, and the lower esophageal sphincter does not relax properly. This combination leads to impaired emptying, and can therefore lead to obstruction of the esophagus. About 1 person in 100,000 each year is affected. Adults between the ages of 25 and 60 years are most commonly affected. Common signs and symptoms include dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), weight loss, chest pain, and heartburn. Hiccups also occur commonly in persons with achalasia. The process of nerve breakdown in the esophageal wall cannot be stopped. However, treatments that work to improve the functioning of the esophagus may be prescribed. Nitrates, such as Nitro-Dur and Nitro-Bid , and calcium channel blockers, such as nifedipine ( Adalat, Procardia ), relax the smooth muscle of the lower esophageal sphincter. Procedures, such as physical dilation of the sphincter and surgery, also may be performed. Botulinum toxin injection into the sphincter itself may be administered to decrease pressure.by Joy Lamb, PharmDDrive-up window Due to a misprint when this article was originally published,we are presenting it again here. Editor By Corey Davis LAKELAND-When Florida Southern head baseball coach Jim Tyrrell makes the call to the pullpen to bring in his closer, there is usually just one name he calls. When the game is on the line, Tyrrell calls for his ace junior right handed pitcher Daniel Tillman. Tillman, a 2007 Suwannee High graduate, has been the Moccasins'most consistent player the last two years. His gutsy performance hasn't gone unnoticed either. The College Baseball Blog ranked Tillman 90th in its Pre-Season list of the Top 100 Players in the country, while Baseball America ranked him the No. 1 Division II prospect in the nation. "To be honored as the top prospect in Division II, and to be considered one of the top closers in the nation, over all divisions, is pretty crazy to me," Tillman said. "I never thought it would happen. My parents always told me to do your best every day and everything would work out and I guess it has." Tillman's junior season was a remarkable one, as he was named to the NCBWAsecond-team All-South Region and second-team All-Sunshine State Conference (SSC). Appearing in 24 games (20 in relief), Tillman was 4-2 with a 3.15 ERA, with 62 strikeouts in 54.1 innings. His 12 saves was a second-best season total in FSC history, most since Kyle DeYoung had a season-record of 17 in 2005. Two years ago after completing his sophomore season, Tillman was named second-team All-South Region, second-team All-SSC and was also named to the SSC Commisioner's Honor Roll. Tillman was 3-1, with a 1.80 ERA, striking out 29, with 5 saves in 20 appearances. Tillman is currently 1-0 on the season with a 3.18 ERA with 7 saves, 40 strikeouts and 15 walks in 22.2 innings. SPORTS Daniel Tillman has improved his stock the last two years enough that he might be a high draft pick in the 2010 MLB draft. In two and half years of college, Daniel Tillman has given up just two home runs in his career, none since his freshman season. Former Suwannee High pitcher Daniel Tillman is excelling in college at Florida Southern. Photos:Florida SouthernIn two and half seasons, Tillman has allowed just two homeruns over his career. "I have had some consistency problems, waking too many guys, I have played decent but not as well as I would have liked," Tillman said. Just last weekend against Eckerd, Tillman became the school's all-time save leader with his 24 career save. "Yeah I set the career saves record last weekend against Eckerd. That's what I have been working on for 2-3 years now. I wasn't expecting to be a closer when I got here but my freshman year I took on that role and really developed into last year becoming the No. 1 guy. I was shooting for it, it's a real cool experience. " His success has been rather surprising somewhat since he was forced into changing his role on the team moving from a starter to closer. "In high school, I was just a starter, making the transition to closer your dealing with arms and reaction. Your arm hurts after throwing but you know how handle your body and how to handle it. I'm the only closer on the team, I can't throw every day, I only come in when its a close game." Tillman has a good variety of pitches that set up others and keep the hitters off balance. "My best pitch is definitely my fastball. I have the ability to get guys out and set up my other pitches like a slyder and changeup as well, " Tillman said. At Suwannee, Tillman was a third-team all-state selection as a junior and senior. He had an ERAof 0.67 in 62 innings as a junior and 1.05 as a senior. "It was a lot of fun, wow you know I have never thought about it until now when you just mentioned it. Probably the highlight of my high school career is setting the all-time ERArecord. In my two years, I never won 10 games, never struck out a lot people, but I always worked hard and got guys out as best as I could," Tillman said. This past summer, Tillman pitched for Cotuit in the prestigious Cape Cod League and didn't allow a run the entire season. Tillman had five saves in 16 games, struck out 31, walked seven in 22 innings. "It was a lot of fun, but it was tough in the beginning I wasn't sure if I was suppose to be there, I felt intimidated. I come from a small Division II school and your going up against guys who played in Division I power schools, its very intimidating. I had to take a step back, you only get one chance to be here and I turned it around." Between his play in college and at the Cape, Tillman started getting noticed from professional scouts. "What helped me was last year we had a shorstop that did an outstanding job in the Cape Cod League and was projected to go in the first three rounds of the draft. My sophomore year he had lots of exposure by the scouts and they got to see me for basically 2 1/2 years. " With scouts beginning to pay him lots of attention almost daily, Tillman has had to adjust his mindset. "Recently, I have had to reevaluate my approach about the draft and handling the scouts. It's a distraction that you SEETILLMAN,PAGE5B

When it is completely dry, sweep away or vacuum any additional dirt that was left behind. If your concrete is porous you can use any exterior paint that is recommended for use on concrete decks. Using a roller with a long handle, paint the entire patio. If necessary, apply a second coat. Let the patio completely dry. From this point you can either apply a sealer and be done or for a more creative look you can paint a faux pattern before applying the sealer just as you would on a wall in your home.

I handle it but I think about helping my team first." As far as making a decision anytime soon about whether going pro or coming back for his senior year, Tillman isn't ready to make now or anytime soon. "I will wait till June to decide my future, I'm not sure what I will do at this point. I'm very interested in playing professional ball, I've been looking to it forever." Before he can think about the draft, Tillman is more concerned about leading his team back to the College World Series this year after missing it last season. "Last year we lost in the regional championship. That was tough, I think this year we have a lot more ability in the lineup and a lot more depth to get to the World Series. We have played well through the year, but you go through some tough spots. We just have to stay focused, in control and full steam ahead to Cary, N.C." Currently (26-5), Florida Southern is second in the SSC, but according to Tillman has gone through some rough times lately. "Its been a tough last couple of weeks, we haven't played bad, but our bats got cold and our hitters were going through slumps," Tillman said. If Florida Southern is to win another SSC title, the Moccassins will have to go through nemesis arch-rival Tampa, which is undefeated in SSC play. "We keep telling each other, Tampa will lose, it's just a matter of when. Tampa vs Florida Southern is like Florida State vs. Florida, we hate them a lot, but we have to take it one game at a time." Tampa (30-5, 12-0), Florida Southern (26-5, 6-3), Barry (21-8, 6-3) and Florida Tech (23-9, 7-8) are all battling for the conference title. In the latest Collegiate Baseball Division II Poll, Tampa is ranked No. 4 just ahead of No. 6 Florida Southern, while conference foe Florida Tech is ranked No. 24. Florida Southern travels to Barry this weekend April 2-3 in a critical SSC three game series. Three weeks later, the Mocs travel to Tampa for a three game series April 23-24 in a series, that will likely decide the conference regular season champion. If all goes well the rest of the season, Tillman and the Mocs could host a regional May 13-17 at selected sites, with the winners of the regionals advancing to the Division II World Series May 22-29 in Cary, N.C.

At first, they called it the "Nutritional Educational Program," and that first year the subject was "dairy." All things milk and calcium were presented to a gathering of eager learners. A presentation by the Research Center was also included. It featured agents from Suwannee, Madison, Taylor and Jefferson, with the help of the Suwannee HCE. Since then, it has become more a shared activity between the Suwannee Extension and the HCE. The Cooking School has continued since then and has prided itself in demonstrations with education, nutrition and food safety backgrounds. Some of the past themes have been about tomatoes, squash, corn, high fiber, chocolate and stretching your food budget. This year's theme will be Florida Cracker Cooking. Door prizes have always been a part of the school, although lately a lot of stress has been placed on them. They began as a way of awarding audience members for correct answers to questions about nutrition and cooking methods, and we hope to revive this method of awarding them in addition to the abundance of door prizes as always.. Asmall recipe book that has been prepared and will be part of the registration packet for each attendee. Demonstrations of Florida Cracker recipes, kitchen how-to's, nutrition facts, and a tasting of many of the recipes in the cookbook will all be part of the next Florida Cracker Cooking School that will take place on Thursday, April 29 at 7 p.m. in the UF/IFAS Extension Office Conference Room. The cost for each person is $3 to be paid at the door. The doors will be open at 6:30. The Extension Office is located by the Coliseum at 1302 11th St SWin Live Oak. Phone 386-362-2771.

While the Internet has opened the world to many in ways never imagined, there is a darker side that is causing people to withdraw from society and turn to destructive behaviors. Examples of Internet addiction include online gambling, gaming and shopping, and obsession with pornography, blogs, social media and chat rooms. Vicky Mieseler, vice president of clinical services at the Ozark Center of Freeman Health System, said the key to understanding whether an individual has an Internet addiction is determining how much usage is too much. "When you're looking at someone who spends a great deal of time on the Internet, you're trying to determine if they're spending an exorbitant amount of time doing that as opposed to everyday living," she said. "If it's causing you a problem in your life, then it's a problem." Mieseler said Internet addiction is similar to substance addictions in that many of the same symptoms are present. "If you're more interested in spending time with the thing you're addicted to than you are with your family and friends, then that's a symptom," she said. "If you're preoccupied with the thing you're addicted to, then that's a symptom. Those things are the same for any addiction." Internet addiction can lead to more serious symptoms, including health problems from a lack of sun or exercise, increased senses of loneliness and depression, and the loss of social skills, Mieseler said.

GlobeThe real thing? treated, Internet addictions can increase the likelihood that the individual will get divorced or fired, or have financial, academic or sexual problems, she said. "(Internet addictions) can be very serious," she said. "That's your whole life right there." Whereas treatment for substance addictions focuses on abstinence, Internet addiction treatment focuses on abstaining from the specific problem, not necessarily from the Internet itself. The reason for that, Mieseler said, is that it's not realistic in today's job market for an individual to never use the Internet. "Aperson who is an alcoholic should never drink again," she said. "The goal (of Internet addiction treatment) is to never engage in the problematic aspect of the Internet. If your addiction is centered around social networking, then our goal for you would be to stop using Facebook or the other social networking options available." Mieseler said anyone can become addicted to the Internet, though certain groups of people are more at risk. "Teens are more at risk because, let's face it, they have been raised in technology their entire life," she said. Other at-risk groups include people who are immobile or homebound, people who lack social support, people who suffer from depression or anxiety disorders, and people who have addictive personalities. Research on Internet addictions is scarce because online technologies are relatively new. "I think the field of mental health is trying to catch up, and we're beginning to see new addictions, and we're having to race against the clock to get programs in place to meet those needs," Mieseler said. One of the first large-scale studies conducted on Internet addictions was completed in 2006 by Stanford University's School of Medicine, which interviewed 2,513 adults in a nationwide telephone survey. Researchers said 68.9 percent of respondents were regular Internet users, and one in eight displayed at least one possible sign of problematic Internet use. The team, moreover, said: That 13.7 percent found it hard to stay away from the Internet for several days at a time. That 12.3 percent had seen a need to cut back on Internet use at some point. That 8.7 percent attempted to conceal nonessential Internet use from family, friends and employers. That 5.9 percent thought their relationships suffered as a result of excessive Internet use. Elias Aboujaoude, the study's lead author, said he was particularly concerned by the number of people who hid their nonessential Internet use. "Obviously something is wrong when people go out of their way to hide their Internet activity," he said in a news release. "We often focus on how wonderful the Internet is how simple and efficient it can make things. But we need to consider the fact that it creates real problems for a subset of people." Internet usage in general has clearly increased over the past decade, with 68.7 percent of homes boasting Internet access in 2009, compared with 41.5 percent in 2000, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Courtesy photoEmbrace the inner "Diva"The Thomasville Times-Enterprise has a temporary remedy with the upcoming "Diva Day" on April 10, a chance for area women to not only get in a few hours of shopping with other ladies, but also an opportunity to be a little pampered. "Diva Day" is the first such event the Times-Enterprise has sponsored that includes individual home-based crafters and businesses, as well as retail," Chris White, advertising director, said. "I heard about a similar event geared toward retail and I wanted to have one that promoted both homebased businesses and retail," she said. "This is an opportunity for our community to come together in one place and see the best of both worlds, all in one day." Items expected to be on site during the event include jewelry, handbags, candles, silver and pewter, scrapbook items, crochet pieces such as blankets and afghans, collectible dolls and furniture. Displays include pool accessories, home decorative items and health screenings courtesy of Archbold Memorial Hospital. "One room will have all the crafts and retail items; the other room is for health with chiropractors, massages, nails, health food samples, and screenings," White said. Almeda Simpson, assistant vice-president for clinical and community outreach at Archbold, said these screenings will include cholesterol, diabetes, blood pressure, body mass index and vascular. Representatives will also have various health information available during the event. The event is rain or shine, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rose City Best Western Conference Center Grand Ballroom. Admission to "Diva Day" is free but items will be for sale at vendor booths. Shopping bags will be handed out to participants and some vendors will also have bags.

Backstreet Boys coming to Valdosta By Benji Tunnell CNHI News Service Hollywood is coming off a record-breaking year for box office grosses in 2009, and is looking to top those numbers this year. Asteady stream of peoplepleasing movies and 3-D upcharges have kept the coffers healthy. So what could possibly go wrong with this sunshine-androses scenario? The Wall Street Journal last week reported that corporate movie theater chains are eyeballing the consumer's willingness to plop down increasingly scarce dollars on both traditional and 3-D fare, and want a bigger piece of the pie. The gouging at the ticket booth is about to see its seemingly annual increase. Some chains are going to raise ticket prices by as much as 26 percent. This is on top of the surcharges viewers already pay for the premium 3-D experience. Many will argue that the success of 3-D films shows that people will pay higher prices for something they really want to see. The problem is that people are paying only for the novelty of it. With a handful of exceptions such as "Up" and "Coraline," 3-D is just all flash with no substance. Would a film like "Avatar" have made as much money had it been released just a couple of years previous? Not a chance. People are still paying for the newness and sense of wonder, but soon it will enter into the territory of the familiar. As this happens, one would hope that filmmakers start using 3-D as a tool to enrich their films, and not just as a distraction. But if this doesn't happen, people will soon tire of paying extra for something that doesn't amaze any more. And if we see even more of an up-charge on these tickets, they will change their spending habits sooner rather than later. Exhibitors seem to think that they are the only game in town. In a sense, they are. They are able to offer a communal experience, something that can't necessarily be recreated at home. Yet this isn't always a good thing. While there's something to be said for a night at the movies, there's also a positive in knowing that you won't be inundated with crying babies, annoying talkers, incessant cell phone usage and overpriced concessions. Factor in how larger digital televisions and better home theater systems are commonplace in many homes, and the appeal of the theater begins to dwindle. Let's take a comparative look at other entertainment options. For the patient consumer, a movie can be had for a buck out of a Redbox machine. For cinephiles who consume films in larger quantities, the cost of a Netflix subscription is the equivalent of one adult ticket a month at our local theater. If the big screen is a must, there are often offer cheaper prices for the same movies after just a couple of weeks. And for less than the cost of two tickets (sometimes just one, when 3-D charges are factored in), one could simply purchase the DVD for a personal collection. The library is free, and there's this thing I keep hearing about called "the great outdoors" that apparently won't set you back a dime. What the corporate chains fail to realize is that we, as the consumers, are not wholly dependent upon their offerings. While it might take a change in habits, the viewing public can embrace other alternatives. Some may be unwilling at first, but money (or lack thereof) often has a way of motivating. Let's be honest here: While there are standout films released every year, the vast majority of output is mediocre at best. Why should we be paying a premium price for such milquetoast (or even worse) product? Would we pay an extra three bucks for milk that was two days past expiration, or 26 percent more for moldy bread? Of course not. It is foolish to expect the general public to willingly fork over more cash for already spoiled films Movie prices likely to increase nationwide2010 Wild Adventures Concert Schedule* April 10 REO Speedwagon & STYX April 17 Wynonna May 8 Chicago May 15 Rodney Atkins May 22 David Crowder Band May 29 Backstreet Boys *All performers and dates are subject to change due to circumstances beyond the park's control.

Hollywood likes to point out that, compared to other entertainment options, movie tickets are a great value. But this comes from the same people who continue to green-light films starring Robin Williams and Ashton Kutcher, so perhaps their judgment is just a bit flawed. The question comes down to this: How much are you willing to pay? Is there a breaking point that would keep you from coming to the movies? The future of $15 tickets is not too far off; will you still be there? If the answer is no, the most convincing argument and most direct message you can send to the film industry as a whole is to stay home or find other ways to spend your money. Increasingly empty seats and vacant concession stands would make the point crystal clear. Plus, it might save us from "The Bounty Hunter 2: Obnoxiousness Returns."

Although they are usually benign (not cancerous), and generally cause no symptoms, some fibroids can be troublesome for women. Fibroids are solid, fibrous tumors that are found inside the uterus. These masses can form in a number of places and are classified according to their location. * Intramural: Round fibroids inside of the uterine wall that can cause the uterus to enlarge as it grows. * Submucous: Fibroids that occur just below the lining of the uterus. They can cause menstrual problems and pain as they grow and move around in the pelvic area. * Subserous: These fibroids grow on the outer wall of the uterus and generally cause no symptoms unless they interfere with other pelvic organs. * Interligamentous: Fibroids that grow sideways between the ligaments that encompass the abdominal region. These can be very difficult to remove because of their close proximity to other organs. * Parasitic: A fibroid that attaches to another organ. Fibroids are generally discovered during routine gynecological exams. A physician will feel a mass on occasion and order a follow-up ultrasound to determine what is going on internally. Many times women do not even know they have fibroids until a doctor discovers them. While fibroids can be singular or minute in size, they generally grow in bunches and may get to be quite large. Fibroids the size of grapefruits have been removed, and the largest fibroid ever detected weighed over 100 pounds. Although most fibroids do not cause symptoms, about a quarter of women with the condition report abnormal bleeding, pain and enlargement of the uterus. Backaches may also occur if the fibroid extends toward the backbone. Treatment for fibroids is generally not done unless the fibroids cause severe pain or unusual bleeding. In that case, surgery to remove the tumors (myomectomy) or the uterus itself (hysterectomy) is the course of treatment. In most cases, however, fibroids will grow back even after being removed. The only permanent way for a woman to rid herself of fibroids is the eventual hysterectomy. This should be considered if fibroids are continually troublesome and after a woman has completed her family, as a hysterectomy eliminates the possibility of future conception. For more information on uterine fibroids, consult with your gynecologist or family practitioner.Diagnosed With Fibroids?

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Odd Even U U new new Odd EvenU U new new North Florida APRIL 7 & 8,2010,PAGE 9 CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE WWW.NFLAONLINE.COM SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA THEQ: "I've been using coupons all my life, and I've had one question for nearly that long. Many coupons bear the message, ÔNot transferable.' I have always assumed this means that only the first, intended recipient of the coupon can use it. However, I hear about coupon clubs and exchanges that trade or share coupons. Isn't this unethical or illegal if the coupon says it is not transferable?" A: There's a lot of fine print on coupons. Instructions for usage, redemption and terms abound in the tiny text at the bottom of each one. And yes, on many coupons you see the ominous warning, "Coupon may be void if copied, transferred, reproduced, sold or exchanged." What does this mean? First of all, it's not illegal to share or trade coupons. There are no laws that govern coupon trading. The "non-transferable" statement is one of the terms of redemption that the manufacturer issuing a coupon sets. Through these terms, the manufacturer reserves the right to deem the coupon void if it has been transferred against its wishes. But what does that mean? Does it mean I can't share cat food coupons with my sister, or trade coupons with other moms at my kids' play group? Will the coupon police knock on my door if I mail some of my extra coffee coupons to my aunt? No. While the wording seems loaded with consequence, it's simply a statement by the manufacturer notifying consumers that it reserves the right to declare a coupon void if it determines that the coupon is circulating via fraudulent means. It would be very difficult for anyone to police the activities of millions of coupon shoppers. As you point out, coupon clubs and swaps abound across the country. And manufacturers themselves sponsor coupon networks to encourage the use of coupons. Procter & Gamble's Vocalpoint (www.vocalpoint.com) and General Mills' Pssst (pssst.generalmills.com) invite shoppers to register to receive product samples and coupons in exchange for providing personal information Ð including name, age, gender, address, number of and ages of members of your household and your attitudes about buying new products and sharing opinions with friends and family, among other information. The companies invite "members" to share coupons with friends and post opinions of their products online. One Vocalpoint mailing included five $10 coupons for a popular brand of skincare products. While the mailer's printed instructions encouraged me to share the coupons with friends, each coupon contained the wording: "Void if transferred to any person, firm or group prior to store redemption." Why would a manufacturer put this wording on coupons that it explicitly encouraged me to give away to other people? Transferring a coupon, from a legal standpoint, refers to much more than simply handing one to a friend. The transfer manufacturers seek to prevent involves three areas: duplication, distribution and compensation. If I photocopy a coupon or I scan a coupon into my computer and then print my scan of the original coupon, I am transferring that coupon from one medium to another. This duplication is prohibited. And, if I took my (now illegally transferred) copies of the original coupon and started using them or sharing copies with friends, I would be distributing an illegally transferred coupon. And if I went one step further and decided to sell those (illegally transferred) copies of coupons, I would be receiving compensation for transferring them. If you're not doing any of these things (and you shouldn't be!) you're not illegally transferring coupons. Feel free to swap, trade and share your coupons with others. Manufacturers do not prohibit this and, in fact, many of them are delighted if you do.

She said her children and husband all help out in the venture, mostly done in the family's basement. "We've been doing this about four years now and it is mainly a word of mouth business but we sometimes go to little craft shows," Miller said. "I saw the ÔDiva Day'ad in the paper asking for vendors and thought it would be something new. "I don't know how it is going to go but I am excited about it. I think it is going to be neat." Miller enjoys meeting people and having fun with her craft at the same time. "When I meet someone, I try to pick out which scent they will like," she said. "Everyone has their own unique way of smelling and scents they like." White encouraged local ladies to bring a few of their girlfriends and take advantage of the day. "ÔDiva Day'is just the outing needed, a place to shop, shop, shop," she said. "We will have something for everyone, whether you're a conservative woman, contemporary, young or mature.
