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.

Details emerge in murders


BE ON THE LOOKOUT
James Lindsey Howze and Lonnie Robert Munn, suspects in
last week's triple murder in McAlpin, may be traveling in a
burgandy and silver 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup with front
end damage and a number of decals or stickers, say
authorities. The vehicle carries a Florida tag, number
H039CW. If spotted, please contact authorities.

New details have emerged in
the murder of three McAlpin resi-
dents as police continue their
search for two men wanted for the
crime.
A family spokeswoman held a
press conference Tuesday after-
noon at the Suwannee County Jail,
during which she held pictures of
the victims, pleading for any in-
formation that could lead to the
arrest of James Lindsey Howze,


38, and Lonnie Robert Munn, 47,
both Suwannee County residents,
for their alleged role in the "cold
blooded murder."
She also announced that rela-
tives of the slain family are offer-
ing a $10,000 reward for the cap-
ture of all those involved.
"The family would like to thank
everyone in Suwannee County
and surrounding counties who
have offered their prayers and
support during our greatest time of
need," Marcia Riegel said during
the press conference, breaking

down toward the end. "The response of
everyone in the area is a testament to the
spirit of the community as well as the
incredible loving character of Joe, Nan-

By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.

What's the Scoop?
Just days after an article appeared in the
Suwannee Democrat titled: "Florida Wins a
Spot in Race to Top," officials at the Florida
Department of Education reaffirmed by e-
mail that the Suwannee County School Dis-
trict could still expect to receive
$992,216.46 in grant funds as part of the
RTTT education initiative.
Leaders at the school district's administra-
tive office showed concern regarding the ac-
curacy of the nearly $1 million figure with
several factors cited.
As Cheryl Mae Brinson, grant writer and
director of special programs for the school
district, previously stated: that Florida was
not named a winner in Phase I of the compe-
tition in addition to the fact that the local

SRWMD governing



board reconsiders



proposed tax increase


Staff

The Suwannee River Water Manage-
ment District does not expect to raise
taxes this year to fund its minimum
flows and levels (MFLs) program, Gov-
erning Board Chairman Donald Quincey
said Monday.
"The Governor's Office has helped us
identify additional funding sources to
help pay for our MFLs program, and
we've also been able to reduce our oper-
ating budget slightly, so we don't antici-
pate having to raise taxes this year after
all," Quincey said during a governing
board teleconference.
At its July meeting, the board had pro-
posed increasing the millage rate to raise
additional revenue to pay for the MFLs
program, which helps determine how
much water is available for issuing water
use permits.
However, because there no longer is a
need to generate additional revenue
through ad valorem taxes to pay for


MFLs this year, the board likely will
adopt a millage rate that will generate
only as much revenue as the District col-
lected last year, to meet its operating
budget.
The first public hearing on the Fiscal
Year 2010-11 proposed $61.6 million
budget will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 14
at 5:30 p.m. The hearing will immediate-
ly follow the governing board's regular
monthly meeting, which will be held at a
special time, beginning at 3 p.m.
A final public hearing will be held
Tuesday, Sept. 28 at 5:30 p.m. to adopt
the final budget and millage rate. A gov-
erning board workshop on the District's
draft Water Supply Assessment will pre-
cede the final budget hearing, beginning
at 3 p.m.
Both budget hearings will take place at
the District's Headquarters at the corner
of US 90 and CR 49 in Live Oak. The
public is invited and encouraged to at-
tend. For more information call 800-226-
1066 (Florida only) or 386-362-1001.


There will be prayer for
America and for our local
communities, including
our firefighters, from area
pastors and city and coun-
ty officials. There will also
be special music.
For Suwannee and
Hamilton residents, the


event is set for noon on
Saturday, Sept. 11 at Mil-
lennium Park, one block
north of the Courthouse, in
Live Oak.
Bring small folding
chairs and come early.
For Lafayette, Dixie and
Taylor counties, the event


The Suwannee County Republican Par-
ty's general meeting will be held Thurs-
day at 7 p.m. at Live Oak City Hall. We
will have two candidates who won our
party's nomination. Elizabeth Porter, Re-
publican candidate for Florida House Dis-
trict 11, will be our keynote speaker. Also


will take place at Mayo
Town Park on US 27.
In Columbia County, the
meeting is at Olustee Park
by Courthouse.
For more information
call Carol Hudgins, North
Central Coordinator Coor-
dinator, at 386-935-2997.


Steve Southerland, Republican candidate
for US Congress, District 2, will be there
to meet and greet people, and share with
us his vision for our country. Everyone is
welcome to attend.

Hi. I am David Collins from the Boy
Scout troop 408. I have recently completed
my Eagle Project which was a Community
Clothing Give-A-Way. It was very suc-
cessful and I would like to thank everyone
that helped me out in some way.
First, I would like to thank everyone that
donated clothing for this, because I could-
n't have done it without those donations.
Next, I would like to thank the staff at the
Suwannee Parks and Recreation building
for letting me use the John Hale Park
building to hold the event. I would espe-
cially like to thank the Big 98 and 106.1
radio stations for announcing the event.


Plan to join us Saturday September 18,

House. For the children we will have an

will open at 1 p.m. we will eat at 2 p.m.
Please come and bring a picnic lunch
(including tea) for a good ole fashion
family get together! Eating utensils,

I would also like to thank the Beatys at
Beaty's Auto Parts for letting me use a
spare truck trailer to store donations until
the event. I want also to thank this news-
paper for putting in the ad for the event and
for posting this letter. Last, but not least, I
want to thank everybody that came out and
picked up some clothes that they needed.
You all helped me a lot by picking up a lit-
tle over 3/4 of all of the donations. The rest
of the donations went to the Florida Sher-
iff's Boys Ranch Opportunity Store, who
also let me borrow several racks to hang
clothing on. Thank you all for your sup-
port.

Viewpoints/Opinions


Coming


soon: Old


coot capers

By Jim Holmes
Has Hollywood had another watershed moment
with the release of Sylvester Stallone's box office
winner, The Expendables?
Certainly the film is not on the level of Birth of
a Nation, the Jazz Singer, Citizen Kane or that tech-
nological 3-D marvel Avatar ... but I suspect a wa-
tershed moment has occurred nonetheless. You
see, I think The Expendables marks the debut of a
whole new type of Hollywood genre ... one aimed
directly at a graying America. If I had to name it,
I'd call it "Tales of the Testosterone-less" -- a
whole new form of action film starring old coots!
In other words, folks with whom I can identify!
If you've not yet seen the movie, let me hasten to
say that it certainly is not Shakespeare. In fact, it is
loaded with cinematic cliches right down to the
end, where our aging hero -- Stallone -- gives the
beautiful, former maiden-in-distress a peck on the
cheek before heading off toward the distant sun ...
and yet another spine-chilling adventure. (Clearly
Stallone always thinks in sequels.)
In other words, it is a classic action movie filled
with everything men---even old men---love to see
on the screen; fiery explosions, brutal fight scenes,
beautiful babes, a villain death count certainly in
the hundreds---if not the thousands---and the film's
real star; the coolest shotgun in the world!
The Expendables is unique because almost all
the lead actors are at or near _l.imdp.i age." Stal-
lone is 64; Mickey Rourke is 58; Dolph Lundgren
is 53 (both look older), Jet Li, 47 and arch-villain
Eric Roberts is 54. Then there are the cameo ap-
pearances by the 63-year-old Arnold Schwarzeneg-
ger and the 55-year-old Bruce Willis. The only
kids are 38-year-old Jason Statham and the good
looking gals.
And since this film has proven to be a huge box
office cash cow, Hollywood is certain to crank out
similar geriatric caper flicks, just as long as they
can make a buck off of them. That got me thinking
about what future Tinsel Town action films, with
aging stars, might offer. Here are a few thoughts:
The villain will do his dastardly deed, but only
after making sure that he has enough Flomax so he
can flee with his ill-gotten gain, without having to
stop at every restroom along his escape route.
Fistfight scenes will feature slapping matches, as
no one wants to hit anything or anyone with arthrit-
ic knuckles. Meanwhile, breathtaking knife and
sword battles will be replaced with beautifully
choreographed confrontations featuring dueling ac-
tors armed with aluminum walkers and canes.
Vehicles traveling 25 miles an hour will consti-
tute high speed car chases.
Hollywood producers will frantically work to
create new and innovative cinematic product place-
ment deals with the manufacturers' of products like
Preparation H and Depends Adult Diapers.
In order to obtain a PG-13 rating, every time the
hero removes his shirt, the producers will be re-
quired to pixelate the star's bulging beer belly and
man boobs.
And last but not least, the heavy breathing in sex
scenes will all involve our hero struggling to open
his bottle of Viagra, only to have his love interest
respond, "Not tonight! I have a headache!"
Yep, coming soon to a movie house near you! I
can hardly wait.

The next question is: In order to

Perhaps the most difficult eco-
nomic lesson is that we live in a
world of scarcity and everything "
has a cost. Scarcity exists when-
ever human wants exceed the ' '
means to satisfy those wants. For
example, Rolls-Royce produces
less than 4,000 cars a year but it's
a safe bet that more than 4,000 of
the Earth's 6.5 billion people want
a Rolls-Royce. That means Rolls- BY WALT]
Royces are scarce. But it's not just
Rolls-Royces that are scarce. It's chil iil-. food, land and
most anything a human would want. There's not enough to
meet every single want.
Scarcity means there's no free lunch. Having more of one
thing requires having less of another. You might say,
"Williams, that's where you're wrong. Someone gave me
this newspaper and I'm reading your column for free!" Not
true. If you weren't spending time reading my column, you
might have spent the time reading something else, chatting
with your wife or children, or going out for a jog. You're
reading my column for a zero price but you're not doing so
at zero cost. You have to sacrifice something. There are
zero-price services such as "free libraries," "free public
schools," "free transportation" and free whatever. It doesn't
mean that costs are not being borne by somebody.
The vision of getting something for Ilniliii.. or getting
something that someone else has to pay for, explains why
so many Americans are duped by politicians. A congres-
sional hoax that's flourished for seven decades is the Social
Security hoax that half of the Social Security tax (6.2 per-
cent) is paid by employers, the other half (6.2 percent) paid
by employees. The law says that if you are self-employed,
you get to pay both halves. The fact of the matter is
whether you're self-employed or not, you pay both halves
of the Social Security tax that totals 12.4 percent. Let's
look at it.
Suppose you hire me and our agreed-upon weekly salary
is $500. From that $500, you're going to deduct $31 as my
share of the Social Security tax and you're going to add $31
as the so-called employer's share, sending a total of $62 to
the IRS. Here's the question: What is the weekly cost for


FROM OUR READERS


To the Editor:

I have attempted to write this letter several times, I do
not want to sound as one that does not care for animals. On
the contrary, I have animals of my own and anyone that
knows me knows how much I do care for animals. I just
recently helped to feed a stray dog for 8 months until an
alternate method could be found, so I feel for the dog left
in the city truck, but I feel I cannot and will not let this in-
cident pass without letting my feelings be known.
Sally Roman is a friend of mine and she is a very caring
person, I feel one incident does not define a person, you
need to look at the over-all picture. Sally did not use her
best judgment leaving this dog in her truck, but if she says
that it was never in danger, then I believe her. I met Sally
when I went around to the shelter to volunteer my ser-
vices. I could not help because of the city being afraid they
would be sued if I were to be bitten by one of the animals,
so I did what I could to help her. Sally served this city
well, she did her job, as hard as it was. How many of these
"concerned citizens" know what her job was? How many
of them have ever been around to the shelter or even know
where it is? Do you know that when she had to go pick up
the animals that were thrown out, or turned over to the
shelter because they could not be fed any longer, or just
plain was not wanted any more, she knew what was going
to happen to them.
You can go to Wal-Mart on most any day and see ani-
mals left in hot cars, you can see this in any of our shop-
ping parking lots, this is a common thing here in Live Oak.
Do we the "concerned citizens" go in and have these peo-
ple paged? Do we the "concerned citizens" stand around
the car and make a fuss? Of course not, did this being a


city truck make the difference here? Did any of you con-
sider what was going to happen to this dog, ask if he is still
at the shelter? Sally's job was t kill beautiful, healthy ani-
mals at least once a week if not more. To the one who said
she should not be working for the city, are you going to
take her place, can you do her job? Has your indignation
at this one incident been satisfied? Now take your concern
and go see the animals at the shelter, offer to foster one or
two so they can have the time for a home to be found for
them, or even better, you give them a home.
I wrote a letter to the editor, several months ago, in it I
described the conditions at the shelter, I ask the citizens of
Live Oak to go around to the shelter and offer their help.
Do you know how many "concerned" citizens went
around there? Not one person, not one group! Yes you
heard me right! Not one!!! My husband and I are very dis-
appointed in the outcome of this incident. Sally did not de-
serve being made to resign. She served this city well, she
did the best she could at her job. There should be laws for
leaving an animal in a car, laws for throwing them out by
the side of the road, but until we the people take the re-
sponsibility that we should have taken when we got our
animals, and do our best for them, then there will not be
animals to be killed. If enough of our "concerned citizens"
get involved in the shelter, then who knows, maybe then
things could be changed. I do intend to let the ones who
handled this incident know my feelings. This incident was
not handled the best way. Sally should have been appreci-
ated, instead she lost her job. I say Shame on the ones who
caused it!!!

to be out of business soon. Therefore, if I am producing
$531 worth of value per week, it is I who's paying the so-
called employer as well as the employee share. The reason
why Congress created the fiction of the employer share
was to deceive us into thinking that we're paying fewer tax-
es than we in fact are.
By the way, all those other nonwage benefits that a
worker receives are in fact paid for by the worker such as
health insurance, retirement benefits and childcare ser-
vices. Without these nonwage benefits, money wages
would be higher. During WWII, Congress imposed wage
and price controls making it illegal for companies to com-
pete for employees by offering higher wages. That's when
we saw many companies start to offer nonwage benefits,
such as health insurance, as a means of competing for em-
ployees.
Nonwage benefits turn out to be good for the employee
because, for the most part, he pays no taxes on them. In
other words, if the employer paid the worker the cash val-
ue of, say, health insurance as wages, the worker would
have to pay income taxes on it and then go out and buy
health insurance.
The bottom line lesson is that if you think you're getting
something for uIllinili.. or somebody else is paying for
something you receive, you'd better give it another look.

O'BRIEN AND OUR NEIGHBORS


'Bits & Pieces' from south Suwannee Co.


By Ana Smith

It's been a long time since I've seen some of
my neighbors, but I was happy to see a few of
them these last couple of weeks, and happier to
know most of them were planning to be at the
polls last Tuesday. And I was very happy to read
in the newspaper that Wednesday that J.M.
Holtzclaw made it in the primary. He's been a
dedicated school board member who has made
a positive impact on what happens in our end of
the county, especially for the students and
teachers of the Branford schools. Congratula-
tions, J.M.! And congratulations to all those
who won their seats in this primary.
And I want to repeat what I said in last week's
article: Now that this local primary election is
over, don't forget you have an even greater re-
sponsibility coming up in November. Do your
homework!!! Check the Internet, if you have a
computer, for as much information as you can
get about those people who are running for of-
fice, especially in Florida. Read all the infor-
mation furnished in this newspaper. And please
remember ... if you do not vote, you are saying
you don't really care what happens to our state,
to our country. And if you do not vote, then you
do not have the right to criticize those who do
get elected that you don't like, or whose policies
and political views and determinations you
don't agree with. Take a lesson from the elec-
tions in 2008!!!
Labor Day weekend is coming up quick,
folks! Traditionally the last big weekend of
summer to gather for a cookout with your
friends and family, so I hope everyone has a
great time. The kids are back in school, so be
careful when you're driving early in the morn-
ing or when school is out. Slow down when
you see them at the side of the roads waiting for
the bus, or after they get off the bus after school
and are walking along the road on their way


home.
I was in the Dollar Tree one day last week and
noticed a very little girl standing over by some
Christmas tree ornaments, a basket of those
"picks" you can use on your tree or to decorate
packages. She stood there very quiet, but then I
saw her turn to a woman I think was her grand-
ma and, pointing to the basket, asked when they
were going to put up their tree and could she
have what was in the basket to put on it! It
seems Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations
come out earlier and earlier with each year,
don't you think? I'm trying my best not to get
too upset over that ... I would expect Halloween
to be the holiday of focus, but have seen only a
few things out in the stores. I guess it's my age,
but folks, I'm not in any rush to start celebrating
just yet! I think buying for Halloween can wait
until October, and buying those seasonal orna-
ments for Thanksgiving can wait until Novem-
ber, though I do agree, in this economy, if you
want to give your family a nice Christmas, start-
ing your holiday shopping in November is not
too soon. When our children were small we
counted on lay-aways started in October be-
cause it took some time (and some money) to
buy for seven children as well as the young
cousins. Too bad lay-aways are a thing of the
past! I know a lot of young families that would
benefit from that process.
In recent years gifts have been exchanged
strictly within the family and only on the grand-
children and great-grands who lived within a
reasonable distance. The few who were too far
away for a visit were sent gift cards to spend as
they wished, and that was a limited amount. We
have learned over the years to really concentrate
on the meanings of the holidays, and to cele-
brate with sincere thanksgiving for what we
have as a family, and to honor the true meaning
of Christmas.
So, as we head into the "fall" of the year, we


are concentrating on those services and projects
that mean something both to the person receiv-
ing as well as us, the givers. And it's not
too early to start planning for that. There are
several very worthwhile charities and causes
right here in Suwannee County that will need a
lot of help this year. Start learning about them,
and deciding which ones will be the beneficiary
of your time, your gifts, and your money.
I want to extend my heartfelt sympathy to
Wanda Petrena and her family on George's pass-
ing. It was a surprise to read about it in the
newspaper. I remember reading George's arti-
cles, seeing him as he hustled around so many
times taking pictures for the Branford News,
running into him at various events all over the
county, and always receiving a warm hello. He
will be greatly missed.

DETAILS


Continued From Page 1A

Allen Hughes, 25, is in custody, charged with
conspiracy to commit armed robbery in con-
nection with the murders, Suwannee County
Sheriff Tony Cameron said. Hughes was ar-
rested Friday. Cameron said it is not yet clear
if Hughes was present during the robbery
and murders. Cameron said Hughes is a for-
mer employee of the family.
"He said he had worked on their farm,"
Cameron said Friday.
Cameron said it's believed the three were
preparing to sit down to dinner Wednesday
evening when the intruders broke in.
Cameron said the bodies were found Thurs-
day morning around 7:30 by an employee of
the family other than Riegel. The three vic-
tims, said Cameron, were found in one room
in their 172nd Street home lying face down,
side-by-side, each with a single gunshot
wound to the back of the head. Cameron said
widespread press reports of the three being
tied-up are false.
He said one gun was used in the murders
but it isn't yet known who pulled the trigger.
Cameron said money was the motive for
the crime and said he believed "the murders
and the robbery were planned."
"We were told they always had thirty to
forty thousand dollars in the house,"
Cameron said after the press conference. "Do
I think there was that much in the house, no.
I don't think there was that much in there at
the time, I think there was a lot less."
Cameron said he believes the three acted


alone in the robbery and murders.
Riegel said she knew the family for about
three years and worked as a personal assis-
tant.
"They were like grandparents to my chil-
dren," she said.
She said she made appointments for the
ailing Nancy Militello, who has been on dial-
ysis for about two years and who required
treatment three times a week. Angelo Ros-
ales drove Nancy Militello to the doctor.
"That's why he was living there with
them," Riegel said.
Riegel also served as bookkeeper for the
Militello family businesses, which range
from scrap metal and hay production to a
used car business.
Riegel said she met Joseph Militello while
working for an auction company. When Nan-
cy Militello fell ill, and "it was getting hard
for her to see," she came to work for them.
The Militellos moved to McAlpin from Tam-
pa seven years ago to "escape the big city,"
said Riegel.
Riegel said she had a special bond with
Nancy Militello.
"Nancy was my best friend and now she's
gone," she said.
Cameron said Howze and Munn may be
driving a burgundy over silver, 1995 Dodge
Ram 1500 regular cab, two wheel drive pick-
up truck, which is owned by Munn's girl-
friend. The truck has a covered bed, numer-
ous stickers on the back window, and front
end damage.
"We believe the Florida tag assigned to the


truck, H039CW, has been removed and re-
placed with a different, unknown tag," ac-
cording to a wanted poster. "They have told
acquaintances they are going to Michigan or
Ohio where they have family members, but
they may have headed to the Tampa area
where they are affiliated with the Black Pis-
tons motorcycle gang."
Cameron said authorities are also "search-
ing up and down the eastern seaboard and
they could quite possibly be located locally
in this state still."
Howze and Munn are each wanted on
three counts of first degree murder, and one
count each of home invasion while armed
with a firearm; conspiracy to commit home
invasion while armed with a firearm; and
conspiracy to commit first degree murder
while armed with a firearm.
Howze is described as 6'4", 280 pounds
with a shaved head, blue eyes. He has a tat-
too of a Swastika on his inner right bicep and
multiple other tattoos.
Munn is described as 5'9", 165 pounds,
brown hair, hazel eyes with multiple tattoos
on his arms, legs, back and chest.
If you have any information regarding the
whereabouts of Howze and Munn, you are
asked to contact the Suwannee County Sher-
iff's Office at 386-362-2222 or Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement Special Agent
Tommy Roper at 1-800-226-5630.
Services for the three will be held locally
at Daniels Funeral Home on US 129 North,
Thursday at 3 p.m. A separate service and
burial will be held in Dade City on Friday.

being read in Live Oak?
Some city councilmen say
they're not. However, the meter
readers say they are and the
"proof is in the paperwork at
City Hall."
The topic has been debated a
while now, but most recently
came to a head last month at a
budget workshop when, review-
ing the 2010-11 proposed bud-
get, Councilman John Yulee
asked why the public works de-
partment needed a new meter
reading truck.
Yulee said the department
doesn't need one because the
meters aren't being read.
Not true, say Billy Law and
Keith Touchton, the city's only
meter readers.
"Everybody has this impres-
sion that you have to uncover all
the dirt and grass from a meter,
but it's not true," said Touchton.
"If we walked up to every meter
and dug out the dirt and removed
the grass over it, we would never
get finished. Yeah, there's grass
growing over it, but most of the
time the lid to the meter doesn't
even get removed."
Touchton said that in some
cases, he and Law merely have
to lift the lid with a screwdriver,
look in, read the numbers and
move on. When dirt covers the
dial, Law said they use the
screwdriver, move the dirt aside
on top of the meter, just enough


to read the numbers and move
on to the next one (both scenar-
ios were witnessed by this re-
porter on three separate meters).
Law said they don't have time
to dig out the dirt, and since they
only carve a small half inch or so
line in the dirt to read the num-
bers, the dirt quickly fills back
in.
They have about 5,200 gas
and water meters to read in the
city in a 20 day window. That
averages to about 130 meters
each a day.
They said that's not impossi-
ble. With their experience, about
30 years between the two, it gets
done, they said. On any given
day they miss a few, often due to
weather, but they get read the
next day.
As for those that leave coins
or rocks on the meter to see if
the meter readers stopped by,
Touchton said they put them
right back when they're finished.
"We want people to under-
stand that we are trained for this
job," he said. "We have the ex-
perience and the knowledge that
we have to perform this job with
accuracy and efficiency."
Each meter reader has a hand-
held device containing each ad-
dress along with its previous
reading. Once they see the num-
ber on the dial they key it in. The
handheld device "learns" a resi-
dence's normal usage, so if a
number gets transposed or the
figure is significantly different


than usual, the device emits a
loud beep and asks the user if he
is certain of the entry. If not he
rekeys. Otherwise, the entry re-
mains but is downloaded at City
Hall and verified by a supervisor.
Usually the pair get a number of
re-reads in which the supervisor
or the device didn't like a certain
read. Last month 91 were re-
read. In some the mistake was
human error.
"We do make mistakes, but we
have those fail safe systems,"
said Touchton. "We're only hu-
man, people don't realize that we
have to work in 100 degree heat
all day walking around in rain,
dirt. It takes a toll on you and
you're going to mess up. But the
end result is usually accurate. If
not, it gets taken care of."
Law and Touchton said some-
times you will see them both rid-
ing together or just taking it easy
under a shade tree.
"We have to take breaks every
now and again, you just have
to," said Touchton. "But that is
the perception right there. They
ride by and see us and think
'they're not doing ;ii:, iliii-. look
at them just sitting there,' but do
they ever stop and ask if we're
OK in the heat?"
In any case, there's plenty of
incentive to do the job and do it
right, the workers say.
"We're monitored very closely
[by OMI]," said Law. "By the
time I kneel down and lift up the
cover, the hard work's already


over. Why not go ahead and get
the numbers? It would be silly of
me not to."
Law referred to a recent entry
in the Suwannee Democrat Rant
& Rave column in which a caller
had feared a high water bill fol-
lowing a leak, only to find the
next month's statement un-
changed.
Law said they only read the
thousands on the meter, not the
hundreds. In other words, if a
water meter reads "425,099,"
only the "425" is recorded.
"If (the caller) had an inch of
water in the kitchen and if it's a
basic kitchen size of say 12 by
12, then that's only 98 gallons of
water, so that won't even be
counted on her bill," said Law.
"We only bill by the thousands,
not hundreds. You'd have to
have 10 inches to get it there."
However, he said the "099"
eventually rolls over and that is
the reason why some people's
bill spikes one month for no ap-
parent reason.
"It's going to get you eventu-
ally," said Law. "We try explain-
ing this to customers."
Law and Touchton both said
the most complaints are received
this time of year because folks
use more water washing their ve-
hicles, watering plants and lawns
and for other outdoor activities.
They say their bill goes up and
the complaints start coming in.
A minimum bill, for 3,000 gal-
lons of water, is $12.08.


Facebook

fans say...

Here's a sampling of
postings to our Facebook
page following the triple
murder in McAlpin.

This is a sign of the
times...no work, no in-
come, no changes in this
county to open up new jobs
or bring in large business
to employee our citizens
leads to this!! MONEY!
I'm say this wouldn't have
happened any way...these
men are criminals, but peo-
ple will do desperate things
in desperate times!

WOW--AMAZING
WHAT A LIFE IS WORTH
THESE DAYS. I know all
of these people and it just
makes me sick to my stom-
ach to think that anyone
could and did do this. I
hope they have fund with
the money because it will
be the last money they will
have for the rest of their
life.SAD-SAD-SAD!!!!!!

I have spread their pic-
tures all over my wall. No
telling what state they are
in by now. This is so sad.
What businesses did they
own?

We need to always look
out for each other and pay
attention (not snoop) to our
neighbors! REMAIN
AWARE OF YOUR SUR-
ROUNDINGS

This is horrible for this
small county and hope they
catch them soon before
they harm someone else

OMG

scary.. 3 murders.. and so
close to home..

OMG! What has Suwan-
nee County come to? Glad
I don't live there anymore.
It's not a very nice place to
raise a family in anymore.

Suwannee county prolly
is one of the lowest for
murders so it's a big time
shock when we have one
and especially when a
whole family gets mur-
dered

You NEVER hear of this
kind of stuff in Suwannee
County so when it does
happen on this sad rare oc-
casion its huge news!!! Not
such big news when some-
one is murdered in a city
where its common.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: What is bruxism?
A: Bruxism is the name of a condition in
which one excessively grinds and
clenches one's teeth. It comes from a
Greek word that loosely translates "to
gnash the teeth." The condition can affect
a person at night, during the day or both.
Early symptoms caused by the condition
are usually a dull headache or a painful
jaw. Other symptoms could be painful,
loose or noticeably worn teeth and a
heightened sensitivity to cold and touch.
In severe cases, bruxlsm can crack tooth
enamel, chip or break teeth. During
sleep, bruxlsm can cause a person's jaws
to clench together with a pressure up to
six times greater than the pressure during
waking hours.
A variety of factors can contribute to the
onset of bruxism. Stress (and these days
there's plenty of that to go around), a
sleep disorder, an abnormal bite or
crooked or missing teeth all can be
factors. The best person to talk to if you're
suffering from bruxism is your dentist. If it
turns out that stress, for instance, is at
the root of the problem, it's possible that
physical therapy or counseling could help.
In some cases, dentists will fit patients
with a mouth guard that protect teeth at
night.

Seizure & Epilepsy Treatments
A seizure is caused by an abnormality of the brain. Seizures may be
classified as nonepileptic or epileptic. A nonepileptic seizure can
occur as an isolated incident. However, ifseizures are recurrent, they
are then classified as epilepsy. A seizure may occur as the result of a
fever, concussion, or meningitis, among many other potential causes.
A seizure typically lasts from several seconds to minutes. While
affected by a seizure, a person may present symptoms that range from
staring to convulsions. Partial seizures are characterized by changes
occurring in only one part of the brain, while generalized seizures
occur when there are changes in both sides of the brain. Seizures
occur differently depending on the person's age.
There are many medications available for the treatment of epilepsy.
The type of treatment prescribed depends on the type of seizures.
Anticonvulsant medications, such as carbamazepine (Tegretol,
Carbatrol) and oxcarbazepine - i,, - i may be prescribed.
Phenytoin (Dilantin) is also an anticonvulsant that works to decrease
the potential for seizures to occur. Primidone (Mysoline) is classified
as an anticonvulsant which works to increase the seizure threshold
and also to decrease the over-activity occurring within the brain.617197-F

Showing respect


The Suwannee River
State Park and the Boy
Scouts of America Troop
408 of Live Oak coordinat-
ed a Flag Retirement Cere-
mony recently to properly
retire flags that have proud-
ly flown at the state park.
When the United States
flag is no longer in the
manner in which is should
be displayed or shown, it
should be inspected and re-
tired, preferably by burn-
ing. The Scouts inspected
the first flag set for retire-
ment and pledged alle-
giance to it one final time.
They then carefully sepa-
rated the blue field of stars
from the stripes and then
they cut it apart stripe by
stripe. The pieces were
placed on a fire inside a
metal fire pit.
"Ranger Rianna had
called to ask if our Troop
would be interested in or-
ganizing a flag retirement
ceremony for them. She
had numerous flags to re-
tire and thought that we
could get the task done,"
said Scout Cody Mayo. "I
feel honored and very
thankful that we had the
opportunity to perform this
service in our community. I
would also like to thank all

include refills of iced tea!


of the people who partici-
pated and took the time to
attend the ceremony. God
Bless America."
The Scouts retired 14
other flags during the cere-
mony.
The Scouts' love for their
country, culture and tradi-
tions was further evident
by their recognition of hon-
ored guests that they chose
to receive the grommets
from the flags retired that
day. The grommets are a
form of good luck to be
carried or worn around the
neck of the person who re-
ceives one. For the Scouts,
the grommets are a small
token of appreciation to
honor the men and women
who serve our country,
state, county and commu-
nity.

teachers union was initially hesitant to
get on board for the program, were rea-
sons for concern. Though those are no
longer specific worries, there are still
more layers of the RTTT program un-
folding as the race moves on, another
district official explained.
"There's still some question because in
addition to the district receiving funds,
money provided to the Florida Depart-
ment of Education will inherently benefit
the districts," said Vickie Music, chief fi-
nancial officer for Suwannee County
Schools.
Therefore, the potential exists for
Suwannee County to benefit, not just
monetarily, but also from special services
provided under the umbrella of the
RTTT.
What's the Scope?
Currently, participating districts, in-
cluding Suwannee, are each in the
process of presenting their own individ-
ual scopes of work to the state. The
scopes are extensive explanations of how
the districts intend to improve their low-
est performing schools, reward the best
teachers largely based on a merit pay
system and increase the academic
achievement of students through new
programs and technologies. The state,
similarly, was required to provide its own


scope of work to officials in Washington,
D.C.
"The district is comprising a scope of
work, which will model the state's plan,"
said Music.
"Locally, questions lie in how success-
ful the district can negotiate its plan
(scope of work) between (itself) and its
employees. It will have to be a plan that
encompasses all stakeholders."
If district administrators are unable to
come to agreement with all stakeholders,
especially teachers, regarding the scope
of work, the district's chance in the com-
petition could still be cut short, Music
said.
She emphasized that there is little time
for sitting on the fence.
"Meetings between the district and its
stakeholders will begin immediately," she
said.
At the end of the the day, one thing re-
mains the same.
Unchanged is the fact that Florida is
set to receive $700 million in grant
funds, 50 percent ($350 million) of
which will be doled out to participating
school districts statewide. The
$992,216.46 intended for Suwannee, is
expected to be allocated at roughly
$250,000 per year for four years, Music
added.


Local Wal-Mart



to get a new look


By Carnell
Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne
@gaflnews.com

Anyone who has
shopped at Wal-Mart in
Live Oak lately may have
noticed some major
changes taking place.
On Aug. 8, the store at
6868 US 129 began an ex-
tensive renovation and re-
model, according to a
company news release.
Taking a cue from cus-
tomer feedback, the com-
pany's higher-ups decided
it was time to perform a
major facelift on the store,
which has been a staple in
the Live Oak community
since 1998.
"The store will receive a
full remodel from the in-
side out and will represent
the latest in Wal-Mart's
store design and customer
experience," according to
store officials.
The new design will
feature a cleaner, brighter
look with wider aisles,
low-profile shelving, a
bright interior paint
scheme, new lighting and
easy-to-read signage all
geared at helping cus-
tomers find the products
they need more quickly.


"We are excited to bring
an improved shopping ex-
perience to our cus-
tomers," said Live Oak
Store Manager Julie Ja-
cobs. "We listened to our
customers and are re-
designing the store to
make shopping at Wal-
Mart even easier."
In addition to the new
design, the store's update
will include a new floor
plan and product assort-
ment. The aim is to align
the store's layout with the
products customers pur-
chase the most, officials
said.
Though shopping at
Wal-Mart in the interim
may seem somewhat chal-
lenging, store employees
and management are doing
everything they can to
make the experience a
pleasant one, according to
one manager.
"We're making sure that
we're greeting all of our
customers and asking
them if they need help
finding ;mii\iliii-.." said
Leondra Howard, shift
manager on duty Monday
morning.
As a convenience to
customers, the store has
remained open during the
remodel, including all de-

trance and directional sig-
nage will be located
throughout the store, offi-
cials said. As an added
courtesy, the majority of
construction and moving
is performed during the
overnight hours.
The completion date of
the remodel is set for mid-
October and will be fol-
lowed by the store's
grand-reopening on On
Oct. 22. Anyone with fur-
ther questions or concerns
is asked to call 386-330-

Free and Reduced Prices Meals Program for Suwannee County Schools


The Suwannee County School Board announced its pol-
icy for Free and Reduced Price Meals for students under
the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs
Any interested person may review a copy of the policy
by contacting Rhonda Lepper, 702 2nd Street, N.W., Live
Oak, Fl 32064, (386) 647-4603.

Household size and income criteria will be used to de-
termine eligibility. These criteria can be found on the
chart shown. Children from families whose income is at or
below the levels shown may be eligible for Free or Re-
duced Price Meals. An application can not be approved
unless it contains complete eligibility information. Once
approved, meal benefits are good for an entire year. You
need not notify the organization of changes in income and
household size.

Application forms are being sent to all homes with a let-
ter to parents or guardians. To apply for Free or Reduced
Price Meals, households must complete the application
and return it to the school. Additional copies are available
at the principal's office in each school. The information
provided on the application will be used for the purpose of
determining eligibility and may be verified at any time
during the school year. Applications may be submitted at


any time during the year.


Households that receive Food Stamps or TANF (Tem-
porary Assistance to Needy Families) are required to list
on the application only the child's name, Food
Stamp/TANF case number, and signature of adult, house-
hold member.

Foster children will receive benefits (i.e., free, reduced-
price, or paid) based on the child's personal income re-
gardless of the income of the household.

Households with children who are considered migrants,
homeless, or runaway should contact the district liaison,
Juanita Torres, Migrant Education Recruiter, (386)647-
4715 or Lisa Garrison, Homeless Liaison, (386) 647-
4623.

For the purpose of determining household size, de-
ployed service members are considered a part of the
household. Families should include the names of the de-
ployed service members on their application. Report only
that portion of the deployed service member's income
made available to them or on their behalf to the family.
Additionally, a housing allowance that is part of the Mili-


tary Housing Privatization Initiative is not to be included
as income.

All other households must provide the following infor-
mation listed on the application.
Total household income listed by gross amount re-
ceived, type of income (e.g., wages, child support, etc.)
and how often the income is received by each household
member;
Names of all household members;
signature of an adult household member certifying the
information provided is correct; and
Social Security number of the adult signing the applica-
tion or the word "NONE" for this household member, if
he or she does not have a social security number.

If a household member becomes unemployed or if the
household size changes, the school should be contacted.
Children of parents or guardians who become unem-
ployed should also contact the school. Such changes may
make the student eligible for reduced price or free meals
if the household income falls at or below the levels shown
below.

Under the provisions of the Free and Reduced Price
meal policy, Rhonda Lepper, Suwannee County Food Ser-
vice Director, will review applications and determine el-
igibility. If a parent or guardian is dissatisfied with the rul-
ing of the official, he or she may wish to discuss the deci-
sion with the determining official on an informal basis. If
the parent wishes to make a formal appeal, he or she may
make a request either orally or in writing to: Dr. Bill
Brother, 702 2nd Street, N.W., Live Oak, Fl 32064 (386)
647-4633.
Unless indicated otherwise on the application, the in-
formation on the Free and Reduced Price Meal application
may be used by the school system in determining eligibil-
ity for other educational programs.

To determine monthly income:
If you receive the income every week, multiply the to-
tal gross income by 52.
If you receive the income every two weeks, multiply the
total gross income by 26.
If you receive the income twice a month, multiply the
total gross income by 24
If you receive the income monthly, multiply the gross
income by 12.
Remember: The total income before taxes, social secu-
rity, health benefits, union dues,
Other deductions must be reported.

Who let the ' Do gs out

Suwannee goeson a 38-0 A "
tear in Kickoff Classic
By Corey Davis . V
corey.davis@gaflnews.com '
LIVE OAK-The Willie Spears era got off to a bang
with a 38-0 win Friday over visiting Chiefland in the
Kickoff Classic.
With a handful of starters out due to injuries, Suwan-
nee had to look to other players for help. Among the
missing was starting quarterback Jimmie Taylor, who
was nursing a pulled groin. Taking his place was senior
Jackson Brown. o , I
Two plays is all it took for Suwannee to grab the lead. -- ..
and the only points the Bulldogs would need.
Senior tailback Greg Swinson (119 yards on 11 car-
ries) took a handoff from Brown and raced 80 yards un-
touched keyed by a Brown block to give the 'Dogs an , '
early 7-0 lead on the second play from scrimmage.
Suwannee held Chiefland to a three and out on its first
possession and took advantage of a 6-yard punt from Ja-
mantye Thompson, converting a 30-yard field goal to
lead 10-0 with 5:06 left in the first quarter.
On its third possession, Suwannee drove 67 yards in
18 plays getting inside the 5-yard line before Swinson
was hit at the line of scrimmage on fourth down.
ran three yards before being stripped of the ball, which
was recovered by Derek Smith at the Chiefland 9 yard
line.
Jackson appeared to hit Andre Zanders two plays later
for an apparent score but Suwannee wasI lI.la.cd for
holding. Brown hit Marcus Lane for a 12-yard gain on a
screen pass and Brown followed with a 6-yard touch- -
down run increasing the lead to 17-0 with 5:48 left till
half.
Lane picked off a well overthrown Deric Allen pass to
set up another Bulldog score before the half. Brown
connected with Lane for 10 yards and Zanders (6 catch-
es for 101 yards) for 13 yards to bring the ball to mid-
field.
Back-to-back passes to Lane (4 catches for 59 yards)
for a combined 37 yards brought the Bulldogs inside the
10 yard line. Brown kept it on a option keeper scoring
from 10 yards out as the 'Dogs led 24-0 with 1:19 left '
till half. Chiefland ran out the clock to head into the
locker room down 24-0.

Melody Christian's run towards a playoff appearance got a little easier with ACD dropping out of the district. ACD was the district runner-up in baseball last season, while Melody was

relationship with the association, al-
though at times it was strained. There's
no animosity. It's a congenial break. The
FHSAA is compromised of public and
private schools and may not be the best
fir for every school."
The move comes while the school was
being investigated by the FHSAA for
several violations in multiple sports, al-
though the majority of violations were
allegedly geared towards the five-time
state champion basketball program.
This isn't the first time the school was
being investigated. ACD was fined
$1,000 by the FHSAA in 2000 for re-
cruiting violations in multiple sports and
fined nearly $30,000 in 2002 for unsuc-
cessfully appealing after being put on re-
strictive probation in boys basketball.
According to the Times Union, follow-
ing a loss in the Class 2A state champi-
onship game in 2001, several ACD play-
ers were seen throwing their runner-up
medals in a trash can. The FHSAA re-
sponded by placing the boys basketball
program on one year's probation and re-
stricted them from playing in the post-
season tournament the following year.
When the school and several players
families filed a lawsuit against the FH-
SAA before the 2001-2002 season at-
tempting to reverse the decision to allow
it to play in the postseason tournament,
the FHSAA responded by adding two
more years to ACD's penalty, including
a hefty fine.
An anonymous source told the Demo-
crat that several ACD basketball players
from out of state and out of the country,
were being housed in an apartment paid
for by the school, an obvious violation.
The FHSAA was investigating the bas-
ketball and baseball teams, which also
housed several foreign players as well.
According to the FHSAA, the investi-
gation will now be suspended and would
only be reopened if ACD decided to try
and rejoin the association.
In lieu of the move, ACD did not show
up to its scheduled kickoff classic at An-
drew Jackson leaving them blind.
By dropping out of District 2-1B in
football, eight other teams including
Lafayette must find another opponent to

play as well as non district games
against Yulee and Baker County.
Morgan told the Times Union he antic-
ipated the Apaches would likely play an
eight game schedule including games
against Potters House Christian and oth-
er independent schools in Florida and
Georgia.
Now schools like Lafayette and
Melody Christian will have to fill holes
in their schedule.
Lafayette head football coach Joey
Pearson was shocked by the move.
"One of our assistant coaches saw the
article on the Times Union web site and
told me," Pearso said. "I was very sur-
prised especially to see it so close to the
season. Usually that's something you see
in the offseason. I'm shocked to see it
before the season. ACD was one of the
better teams last year."
As far as replacing its scheduled game
Oct 29 in Jacksonville, the Hornets will
try to find someone else to play.
"We will have to advertise on the FH-
SAA classified page and see if we can
find someone with the same open date,"
Pearson said.
Melody Christian basketball coach
Mike Raines will also have to redo part
of his schedule as his Wildcats competed
in the same district with the Apaches last
season.
Although Raines team has been highly
successful the last three years, they
haven't won their district or advance past
the first round of the state playoffs, be-
cause of other private schools that re-
cruit kids from all over the country and
other countries.
Arlington Country Day brings in kids

'Dogs out?


Continued From Page 1B
Through the first half, Suwannee accu-
mulated 256 yards of offense, while holding
Chiefland to 26 total yards and 13 offensive
plays.
Chiefland was stuffed on a fourth and
three play on its opening drive of the first
half as Berger was met head on by Alex
Falleck and Swinson.
Swinson appeared to score again on the
next play, taking a handoff 39 yards but it
was called back for holding. Under the no
huddle offense, Brown got his team up to
the line quickly and threw a strike to Zan-


ders for a 12 yard gain. Two plays later,
Brown hit tight end Zach Randolph across
the middle who walked in the end zone for
a 24-yard score increasing the lead to 31-0
with 6:34 left in the third.
With the lead over 30, a running clock
was implemented allowing the game to end
faster.
Following another three and out series by
Chiefland, Suwannee struck again as Brown
hit a wide open Zanders for a 46-yard score
making it 38-0 with 2:56 left in the third.
Chiefland kept its first team offense in
the game despite the score, while Suwannee
brought in its second team on defense.


Berger fumbled the ball over to Suwan-
nee on the third play of the series, but got it
right back as the second team offense led by
quarterback Josh Wright fumbled the ball
away. However, Suwannee's second team
defense preserved the shut out.
"That was very important (the shutout).
We work very hard and that gives us a lot of
confidence, hopefully we can do the same
thing next week," Suwannee senior lineman
Tre Robinson said.
Spears was happy with the performance
but knows his team has a long way to go.
"We got a long way to go, this is just a
jamboree, our goal is to get better each
week," Spears said. "This is huge for us,


I'm excited but we have to get better. We
had a big crowd tonight and I'm looking
forward to going up against the legend next
week."
The legend Spears was referring to is for-
mer Suwannee coach Mike Pittman, who
brings his Hamilton County Trojans into
Paul Langford Stadium this Friday.
Dating back to the spring game 21-0 win
over University Christian, the Bulldogs have
now shut out both of its opponents under
Spears.
"We shut out UC in the spring as well, we
hope to keep that streak alive each week,"
Spears said. "Our goal each week is if they
(the opponent) can't score, they can't win."


Suwannee sophomore quarterback Josh Wright (19) eludes Chiefland lineman Leonard
Allen (21).


Greg Swinson runs up the middle right through the Chiefland defense.

I was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have
to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen,
hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.
- Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach


No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the
beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup
in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed.

Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet.
We have been working with impacted communities since day one.

Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is
to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have
19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping.

Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and
restaurant owners, helping to make them whole.

More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have
already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a
$20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost
incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.

BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism
recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches.

Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams
will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.

And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific
experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.

Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support
over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We
know we haven't always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil
is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do
everything we can to make this right.

It was an historic day Aug. 8 when the
Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in
Live Oak launched its first radio studio.
Don Miller's longtime bluegrass radio
show was the first broadcast to air at the
studio, going out over WLVO 106.1 FM
radio. Famed bluegrass radio DJ "Doc-
tor" Don Miller brought his 9-year-old
bluegrass show to the SOSMP to be the
very first program aired on the studio
nestled under the moss-laden oak trees in
the Arts and Crafts Village.

our first festival when I
was 12. At that time it was
a family project, and it
continues today. We are
excited about our expand-
ing partnership with
WLVO and our ability to
grow our business. Radio
is a perfect fit and a great
asset to the Park."
Cornett continued, "Don
Miller has been a stalwart
in the bluegrass communi-
ty nationwide. He has
helped facilitate this dream
of our late Uncle Charles,
and we are grateful. We
hope to work with Leon
Petterson and Don Miller
to expand programming,
including more musical
genre's and talk show for-
mats. Our intent is to also
open this studio on the
web to listeners world
wide, including our Spirit
of the Suwannee guests.
Streaming live on the
world wide web has the
potential to reach hundreds
of thousands of guests who
can listen to the activities
in the Park in real time as
they happen, staying in
touch with the Suwannee
River Valley and encour-
aging future visits to the
Park and local communi-
ty."
Bob and Jean Cornett,
who started the SOSMP 25
years ago, have hosted
Kentucky's oldest blue-
grass festival, the Festival
of the Bluegrass in Lex-
ington, Ky., for the past 36
years. Jean has brought
many famous bluegrass
artists to the SOSMP. She
has also helped develop
the Suwannee Spirit Kids
Music Camp, held four
times a year at the


SOSMP to interest kids
age 4-17 in learning the in-
struments of bluegrass.
Miller began his blue-
grass show at Lake City's
Power Country 102.1 as
the doctor of bluegrass. A
week after completing nine
years there, Miller began
his 10th year of the pro-
gram at the Spirit of the
Suwannee Music Park, his
first love. "When Bob and
Jean (Corett, SOSMP
founders) came in the gate,
I was right behind them as
the UPS man! I've been
coming here ever since!"
Miller said. Miller is no
longer the UPS man, but
he's produced many blue-
grass shows at the SOSMP
headlined by national
artists and is also part of
the International Bluegrass
Music Association where
he is stage manager for
artists during its annual
convention and fan event.
"Every year we have fan
fest for three days. I'm
lucky enough to be the
stage manager and get to
meet everyone who per-
forms. I usually take a
cooler full of Nettles'
Sausage (from Lake City)
with me," Miller noted
with a sly smile. "Mike
Snider said he likes to see
me but would rather see
the sausage!" Miller
quipped.
Miller is an accom-
plished banjo picker who
was invited in 2003 to play
on the Grand Ole Opry. "I
felt like a jackass at the
Kentucky Derby, but I en-
joyed it," he said, giving
that laugh thousands of
bluegrass fans are very fa-
miliar with from his blue-
grass show. He's also en-
tertained former President


Jimmy Carter and his fam-
ily at one of Carter's fami-
ly reunions.
Miller's passion for mu-
sic led him to purchase just
about every kind of instru-
ment you can imagine. He
plans to have occasional
jam sessions during the ra-
dio show in the future that
is sure to be a hoot! You
never know who might just
stop by to play live on a
Sunday afternoon at Flori-
da's premier camping and
music park! Come out and
get your cameras ready!
Broadcasting from 5-7
p.m. every Sunday after-
noon from a quaint, rustic
little studio in the Arts and
Crafts Village, "Doctor"
Don Miller will bring his
rib-tickling brand of humor
to the station along with


the old-time bluegrass mu-
sic made famous by the
late Bill Monroe and the
Bluegrass Boys. Monroe
and his group entertained
thousands of fans at the
SOSMP just before Mon-
roe's death Sept. 9, 1996.
Monroe is credited with in-
venting the music we
know today as bluegrass
when he took old-time Ap-
palachian music, added
blues and gospel and in-
vented a radical new sound
in the 1930s-40s, vastly
different from anything
heard before. Many of the
great musicians who
played with Monroe's
Bluegrass Boys over Mon-
roe's 60 plus years in the
business such as Chubby
Wise, Vassar Clements, Pe-
ter Rowan and others have


also entertained at the
beautiful SOSMP Other
entertainers include Alison
Krauss, Ricky Skaggs, The
Seldom Scene, IIIrd Tyme
Out, Mountain Heart,
Ralph Stanley and the
Clinch Mountain Boys,
Jim and Jesse
McReynolds, Jerry Dou-
glas, Valerie Smith, Chub-
by Wise and many, many
more. Additionally Beth
and Randy Judy have
brought numerous blue-
grass artists to the Park as
well, including Doc Wat-
son, Bela Fleck, Tony
Rice, Jim Lauderdale and
many, many others. Peter
Rowan will be among
those playing at the up-
coming Magnolia Fest at
the SOSMP Oct. 21-24
produced and hosted by


Beth and Randy Judy.
Now, with the advent of
the new radio studio,
Miller will broadcast the
often haunting combined
music of the mandolin, fid-
dle, guitar, bass and banjo
on the very ground where
the most famous bluegrass,
country, jazz,
Americana/Roots, rock 'n
roll and other musical
greats have entertained and
left their musical footprints
forever embedded in the
hearts and minds of thou-
sands of fans. It's possible
if you listen real carefully,
you might just hear Bill
Monroe's hlII, lonesome
sound" wafting through the
big oaks on the banks of
the famous Suwannee Riv-
er during your next visit to

'Angel for




Blues'




Julie Black


to perform at 'Free Fridays


Blues singer Julie Black Courtesy photo
Blues singer Julie Black. - Courtesy photo


GAINESVILLE - The deep, soulful
voice of blues singer Julie Black will
soon echo throughout the Bo Diddley
Community Plaza and downtown
Gainesville. Black and her band will per-
form on Friday, Sept. 3 at a Let's Go
Downtown "Free Fridays" concert, pre-
sented by the City of Gainesville Depart-
ment of Parks, Recreation and Cultural
Affairs.
Black mostly tours across Florida, but
her talent has won her airtime on radio
stations across the United States and in
various countries such as Canada, Ire-
land, France, Belgium, Italy and New
Zealand. Black's first album, "Call Me an
Angel for Blues" (2007), was released in


the U.S. and Japan and was named one of
the Top 5 Contemporary Blues Albums
by Blues Critic Radio. The album also
spent 22 consecutive weeks on Bill-
board's Roots Blues Chart, and hit No. 3
on the Sirius Satellite Radio charts.
Black's latest album, "You Just Might
Win," was released in April 2009 and has
since hit the charts in 2010 at XM Satel-
lite Radio and Roots Music Report.
Black is critically acclaimed for her
songwriting and has written more than
500 original songs since she first found
her passion for music at the age of 12.
She was born in rural Illinois, but now
lives in the Tampa Bay area. An artist in
every sense of the word, Black is also a


painter and sculptor. Both of her albums
contain her original artwork. Black has
performed at many major events, such as
the Clearwater Sea Blues Festival, Tropi-
cal Heatwave and Gasparilla Festival of
the Arts. She has also played at nationally
known venues the Van Wezel Performing
Arts Hall and the House of Blues.
While acknowledging her unique
sound, critics liken her to artists such as
Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt, Janis Joplin,
Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Jim Morri-
son, Carol King, Billie Holiday and
Lennon and McCartney. She's shared the
bill with many of music's biggest names
including Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, John
Mayall, Johnny Winter and Bette


LaVette. She performs with her tight band
of hand-selected, world-class musicians
including sublime guitarist Dave Eichen-
berger (one of the Steinberger family of
artists), keys monster Michael Johnn,
rock solid bassist "Father Bill" Spicuglia
and soulful drummer Frankie Timpanelli.
The Let's Go Downtown "Free Fri-
days" Concert Series runs from 8 to 10
p.m. on Friday nights from Friday, May 7
through Friday, October 15. The Bo Did-
dley Community Plaza is located on the
corer of Southeast First Street and East
University Avenue. A complete listing of
the "Free Fridays" entertainment sched-
ule can be found at http://www.gvlcultur-
alaffairs.org.

Common Skincare Myths


. -^





LET'S TALK

ABOUT YOUR HEAL"



IIIII r r l







\�-; p k


The skin is your body's largest
organ, so it's no wonder there is
such an abundance of products and
advice available to help keep it in
top form. While many products and
practices are touted as being "the
best" for your skin, the truth is,
when it comes to skincare there are
often more myths than facts. The
wise consumer should know how to
separate fact from fiction. The
skincare experts who make
CeraVe(R) cleansers and
moisturizers want to help everyone
put their best face forward -- and
that means learning the truth about
healthy skincare.
MYTH: Skin is protected from the
sun when you use a product with a
high sun protection factor (SPF).
FACT: Some SPF products only
block against one type of UV ray,
generally UVB, or the rays that
cause sunburns. In reality, the sun
showers us with UVA, UVB and
UVC rays. UVA rays, which have an
aging effect, penetrate into the lower
layers of the skin and should be
protected against as well. That
means you should look for a
sunscreen that is clearly labeled
"broad spectrum," not just ones with
a high SPF number.
MYTH: Deep scrubbing of your
. . complexion prevents breakouts.
S FACT: Cleansing with harsh soaps
7,, or exfoliating scrubs can strip the
skin of vital natural oils and
compromise its protective barrier.
Igy Harsh and frequent, more than twice
a day, cleansing can trick the skin
ASS, ,I.D. into producing more oil and
ue , compound breakout problems.
35-3937 Scrubbing can also lead to skin


sensitivity or rashes.
MYTH: Facials are a beauty must-
have.
FACT: Facials can be fun and if
done by an expert esthetician can
help deliver a variety of benefits
such as moisturization, deep
cleansing and exfoliation. If you can
afford a professional facial make
sure you're "in the hands" of an
expert esthetician or you could wind
up with irritation or scarring.
MYTH: Wrinkle creams can
completely eradicate wrinkles.
FACT: These days there are many


ways to "erase" the signs of time on
the skin. The most effective ways are
with injectable substances, fillers or
plastic surgery. Professionally
administered chemical peels and
lasers can also help give your skin a
fresher, more youthful appearance.
Anti-aging creams cannot
"completely remove wrinkles," but
their formulas often contain
ingredients such as niacinamide,
hyaluronic acid and ceramides that
deeply moisturize the skin and make
it look more supple and radiant.
MYTH: Doing facial exercises will
tone facial muscles, providing a
more youthful appearance.
FACT: There has never been any
substantiation for this beauty myth.
In fact, certain facial movements
such as squinting and laughing may
contribute to the formation of
wrinkles -- maybe that's why we call
them laugh lines and crows feet.
MYTH: Expensive skincare
products are better for your skin.
FACT: Many mass-marketed
products available at your local
drugstore are just as effective as
luxury department-store brands. In
fact, many contain the same
ingredients as their more expensive
counterparts. Elegant packaging,
advertising and luxury brand names
are often what you pay for when
purchasing more expensive products.
CeraVe(R) cleansers and
moisturizers, which contain
ceramides, hyaluronic acid,
cholesterol and niacinamide, found
in pricier brands, also feature a
patented technology that allows a
single application to go a long way.
The ingredients unravel slowly in
the skin where they continue to work
for up to 24 hours. CeraVe� Facial
Moisturizing Lotion PM, applied
before bedtime, penetrates the skin
barrier to lock in precious moisture.
CeraVe� Facial Moisturizing Lotion

Dear Classified Guys,
I went to look at a canoe for sale and
the woman selling it offered to sell
me an outboard motor, fishing poles
and all kinds of fishing gear as well.
The prices were so good that I
bought everything. The next week I
enjoyed a great fishing trip on the
river. But when I returned, I received
a call from the woman's husband
saying his wife sold all his things
while he was away on business. Now
he wanted them back. Ten minutes
later, his wife called me and said
under no circumstances
should I sell that stuff back
to him. She didn't want it L.
back in the house. I love all '-;
the fishing gear, but I sympa-
thize with the husband. Any
suggestions what I should do?
Cash: Sounds like another fishing
trip may be in order. It would be a lot
more peaceful than dealing with this
couple.
Carry: You never know the circum-
stances that may arise after you make a
purchase. In your case, you fell into
the middle of a marital squabble.
Cash: It's like you were the first one
in line for the divorce sale before the
actual divorce!

Carry: At the time of purchase, you
had no reason to believe anything was
wrong. Since the couple is still married,
it's likely she had the right to sell you
the items and you can go ahead with
your fishing expeditions without worry.
Cash: However, if you're feeling
remorseful about the purchase of all the
gear and want to resolve the situation,
here's what you can do. Call the wife
back. She is the one you should speak
to since she sold you the items.
Carry: Explain that you do not want
to be in the middle of their personal
matters. However, if she would like


you to sell the items back, you would
be willing to do so.
Cash: And although tempting, it's
probably not a good idea to raise the
prices. The husband seems upset
enough. Imagine what he'd say if you
doubled the prices when you sold it
back?
Carry: If the woman turns down
your offer, then your conscience is
clear and you can plan that next fishing
trip.
Cash: But if the woman does take
you up on your offer, then maybe it's
time to look for a new hobby.


Get a Receipt
Whenever you buy an item from a
private party, make sure you get a
signed receipt from the seller. No mat-
ter how big or small the item is, get it in
writing. The receipt should include a
description of the item (including serial
numbers if applicable), the date of the
sale and the purchase price. The seller
should include his or her address,
phone number and sign the bottom.
Should any discrepancies arise about
the sale, you will have a written receipt
to protect yourself.
Women Rule
Who wears the pants in your family?
While many guys like to think they are
in charge, the truth is that women typi-
cally control the household. According
to the ii ....... i < Consumer Network,
women control 85% of all personal and
household spending decisions, and
make 75% of their family's financial
decisions. However guys, if you decide
you want to be in charge of something
in your house, it's really not a problem.
All you have to do is get your wife's
permission first!
Do you have a question or funny story about the
classified? Want to just give us your opinion?

Green with Envy
I just love golf. In fact, I play
almost every weekend. Sad to say, it
was one of the contributing factors to
my recent divorce.
After a brutal division of assets, my
ex-wife fought to get my custom golf
clubs as a final jab at our separation.
Since then, I've been playing with my
old set that I had stored in the garage.
I thought I had gotten over the loss
of my clubs until I met up with my
buddy recently on the golf course. He
was playing with a new set of clubs.
"That looks like a nice set," I
admired.
"It sure is," he laughed. "and you're
ex-wife gave me a great deal on
them!" (Thanks to Benny T)


This marriage sale is
all about compromise...

Jill Cataldo saves hundreds on groceries by making the most

of the common coupon. You can, too. Here's how.

Should Coupon Shoppers Leave Shelves Bare?


SBy
Jill Cataldo







ethics of point-of-sale coupon pads, and how
shoppers shouldn't take more than they can
reasonably use. Here is a hypothetical version of
a similar situation. Your family loves Cereal X. A
supermarket ad has it listed for a terrific price; it's
such a great deal that you're ready to stock up. At
the store, you find just six boxes of the cereal on
the shelf. Without knowing if the store has any
more in the stockroom, do you buy all six or do
you leave some for other customers?"
A: I'm asked this question often. As a coupon
shopper, I do stock up during great sales. So,
would I consider myself a "shelf-clearer"? It's
never my intention to clear the shelves at any
store, although, as this reader points out, when
there's a great sale going on smart shoppers who
spot the deal may wipe out the store's stock

before the sale ends, especially if the store didn't
anticipate demand for a particular product.
Any time I speak with a group of coupon
shoppers, it quickly becomes clear that when it
comes to great sales, there are two camps in the
world of couponing. Some feel that shopping is a
"first come, first served" situation. Others believe
shoppers should buy in moderation and leave
some behind for other shoppers.
To me, a shelf-clearer is someone who will buy a
disproportionately large quantity of an item,
more than they'll likely use any time soon - 20 or
more of the same item comes to mind. There's a
difference between buying a reasonable number
of products and buying everything in sight.
If, in the above example, I want to buy six boxes
of cereal and there are only six boxes left on the
shelf, I will likely buy them even if they're the
last six in the store. My logic is this: if it's a
particularly hot item, there's not much difference
if I buy four and leave two (which will be
snapped up by the next shopper, leaving the shelf
bare) or just buy six (also leaving the shelf bare.)
Stores often receive stock several times a week.
While these may be the last six boxes of this
particular cereal at this time, tomorrow night the
shelves could be full again.
Understand, too, that if a product takes up a lot of
space on the shelf, it also doesn't take many
shoppers to clear it out completely. One of my
stores had a great sale on vegetable oil, which
was involved in a Catalina sale. Shoppers
received a $10 Catalina back for buying 5 bottles

of oil. But how many bottles of one brand of
vegetable oil are normally on the shelf at the
store? Perhaps 20. So, the first four people that
came in to buy 5 bottles cleared the shelf until it
was restocked.
I do find it interesting that when the shelves are
empty during a great sale, shoppers blame other
shoppers. I look at the other side of the equation.
Why didn't the store anticipate that the products
in question would move quickly off the shelves?
Stores know well in advance what their sales will
be, though they tend not to look at these ads
through the same eyes as a coupon shopper.
When stores are better prepared to anticipate
what shoppers will buy during a great sale, they
can try to order enough stock to meet demand.
The flip side of this is that stores also don't want
to over buy, and be stuck with too much of a
particular item.
When all else fails, though, don't forget to get a
rain check. Many stores offer rain checks, which
will ensure you can buy the item at the same
price (usually for the next 30 days) once it's back
in stock.

Brandon John Stoudemire, 22, of 17141 90th Terrace, and the female victim reportedly began arguing over a bathroom. During the fight, Stoudemire threw the victim down and began choking her until she passed out, the victim told authorities. Some time after the choking incident the victim was headed to town in her car following behind Stoudemire, at which point Stoudemire pulled over and the victim pulled in behind him. Stoudemire then approached the victim’s car and shattered her driver’s side window, according to details from a probable cause affidavit. The victim placed a call to 911 and was met at the First Federal parking lot by a sheriff’s deputy. Stoudemire was found at the bus garage on Walker Avenue by officials and taken into custody. He was booked into the Suwannee County Jail and charged with domestic battery by strangulation, aggravated battery and criminal mischief. Br andon John St oudemi r e Staff The Suwannee River Water Management District does not expect to raise taxes this year to fund its minimum flows and levels (MFLs) program, Governing Board Chairman Donald Quincey said Monday. “The Governor’s Office has helped us identify additional funding sources to help pay for our MFLs program, and we’ve also been able to reduce our operating budget slightly, so we don’t anticipate having to raise taxes this year after all,” Quincey said during a governing board teleconference. At its July meeting, the board had proposed increasing the millage rate to raise additional revenue to pay for the MFLs program, which helps determine how much water is available for issuing water use permits. However, because there no longer is a need to generate additional revenue through ad valorem taxes to pay for MFLs this year, the board likely will adopt a millage rate that will generate only as much revenue as the District collected last year, to meet its operating budget. The first public hearing on the Fiscal Year 2010-11 proposed $61.6 million budget will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 14 at 5:30 p.m. The hearing will immediately follow the governing board’s regular monthly meeting, which will be held at a special time, beginning at 3 p.m. A final public hearing will be held Tuesday, Sept. 28 at 5:30 p.m. to adopt the final budget and millage rate. A governing board workshop on the District’s draft Water Supply Assessment will precede the final budget hearing, beginning at 3 p.m. Both budget hearings will take place at the District’s Headquarters at the corner of US 90 and CR 49 in Live Oak. The public is invited and encouraged to attend.

I am David Collins from the Boy Scout troop 408. I have recently completed my Eagle Project which was a Community Clothing Give-A-Way. It was very successful and I would like to thank everyone that helped me out in some way. First, I would like to thank everyone that donated clothing for this, because I couldn’t have done it without those donations. Next, I would like to thank the staff at the Suwannee Parks and Recreation building for letting me use the John Hale Park building to hold the event. I would especially like to thank the Big 98 and 106.1 radio stations for announcing the event. I would also like to thank the Beatys at Beaty’s Auto Parts for letting me use a spare truck trailer to store donations until the event. I want also to thank this newspaper for putting in the ad for the event and for posting this letter. Last, but not least, I want to thank everybody that came out and picked up some clothes that they needed. You all helped me a lot by picking up a little over 3/4 of all of the donations. The rest of the donations went to the Florida Sheriff’s Boys Ranch Opportunity Store, who also let me borrow several racks to hang clothing on. Thank you all for your support.

Mildew may be indistinguishable from dirt, so first swab a small area with bleach. Dirt will be unaffected, but mildew will lighten in color or disappear. To kill the mildew, wash the surface with a mixture of household bleach reduced 4 to 1 with clean water or a household cleanser formulated to kill mildew. Rinse the wall or ceiling thoroughly with clean water. After allowing ample dry time, prime the surface with Benjamin Moore Fresh Start (insert registered tradmark here).

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2010 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 6A By Jim Holmes Has Hollywood had another watershed moment with the release of Sylvester Stallone’s box office winner, The Expendables? Certainly the film is not on the level of Birth of a Nation, the Jazz Singer, Citizen Kane or that technological 3-D marvel Avatar … but I suspect a watershed moment has occurred nonetheless. You see, I think The Expendables marks the debut of a whole new type of Hollywood genre … one aimed directly at a graying America. If I had to name it, I’d call it “Tales of the Testosterone-less” -a whole new form of action film starring old coots! In other words, folks with whom I can identify! If you’ve not yet seen the movie, let me hasten to say that it certainly is not Shakespeare. In fact, it is loaded with cinematic clichés right down to the end, where our aging hero -Stallone -gives the beautiful, former maiden-in-distress a peck on the cheek before heading off toward the distant sun … and yet another spine-chilling adventure. (Clearly Stallone always thinks in sequels.) In other words, it is a classic action movie filled with everything men---even old men---love to see on the screen; fiery explosions, brutal fight scenes, beautiful babes, a villain death count certainly in the hundreds---if not the thousands---and the film’s real star; the coolest shotgun in the world! The Expendables is unique because almost all the lead actors are at or near “grandpa age.” Stallone is 64; Mickey Rourke is 58; Dolph Lundgren is 53 (both look older), Jet Li, 47 and arch-villain Eric Roberts is 54. Then there are the cameo appearances by the 63-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger and the 55-year-old Bruce Willis. The only kids are 38-year-old Jason Statham and the good looking gals. And since this film has proven to be a huge box office cash cow, Hollywood is certain to crank out similar geriatric caper flicks, just as long as they can make a buck off of them. That got me thinking about what future Tinsel Town action films, with aging stars, might offer. Here are a few thoughts: The villain will do his dastardly deed, but only after making sure that he has enough Flomax so he can flee with his ill-gotten gain, without having to stop at every restroom along his escape route. Fistfight scenes will feature slapping matches, as no one wants to hit anything or anyone with arthritic knuckles. Meanwhile, breathtaking knife and sword battles will be replaced with beautifully choreographed confrontations featuring dueling actors armed with aluminum walkers and canes. Vehicles traveling 25 miles an hour will constitute high speed car chases. Hollywood producers will frantically work to create new and innovative cinematic product placement deals with the manufacturers’ of products like Preparation H and Depends Adult Diapers. In order to obtain a PG-13 rating, every time the hero removes his shirt, the producers will be required to pixelate the star’s bulging beer belly and man boobs. And last but not least, the heavy breathing in sex scenes will all involve our hero struggling to open his bottle of Viagra, only to have his love interest respond, “Not tonight! I have a headache!” Yep, coming soon to a movie house near you! I can hardly wait.

REGAN Publisher ROBERT BRIDGES Editor THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLERViewpoints/Opinions Coming soon: Old coot capers BIBLE VERSE“Do not those who plot evil go astray? But those who plan what is good find love and faithfulness.” Proverbs 14:22 Perhaps the most difficult economic lesson is that we live in a world of scarcity and everything has a cost. Scarcity exists whenever human wants exceed the means to satisfy those wants. For example, Rolls-Royce produces less than 4,000 cars a year but it's a safe bet that more than 4,000 of the Earth's 6.5 billion people want a Rolls-Royce. That means RollsRoyces are scarce. But it's not just Rolls-Royces that are scarce. It's clothing, food, land and most anything a human would want. There's not enough to meet every single want. Scarcity means there's no free lunch. Having more of one thing requires having less of another. You might say, "Williams, that's where you're wrong. Someone gave me this newspaper and I'm reading your column for free!" Not true. If you weren't spending time reading my column, you might have spent the time reading something else, chatting with your wife or children, or going out for a jog. You're reading my column for a zero price but you're not doing so at zero cost. You have to sacrifice something. There are zero-price services such as "free libraries," "free public schools," "free transportation" and free whatever. It doesn't mean that costs are not being borne by somebody. The vision of getting something for nothing, or getting something that someone else has to pay for, explains why so many Americans are duped by politicians. A congressional hoax that's flourished for seven decades is the Social Security hoax that half of the Social Security tax (6.2 percent) is paid by employers, the other half (6.2 percent) paid by employees. The law says that if you are self-employed, you get to pay both halves. The fact of the matter is whether you're self-employed or not, you pay both halves of the Social Security tax that totals 12.4 percent. Let's look at it. Suppose you hire me and our agreed-upon weekly salary is $500. From that $500, you're going to deduct $31 as my share of the Social Security tax and you're going to add $31 as the so-called employer's share, sending a total of $62 to the IRS. Here's the question: What is the weekly cost for you to hire me? I hope you answered $531. The next question is: In order to make hiring me profitable, what must be the minimum dollar value of my contribution to your total output? If you said $531, go to the head of the class because if the value of my contribution to total output is only our agreed-upon salary of $500, you're making losses hiring me and you're going to be out of business soon. Therefore, if I am producing $531 worth of value per week, it is I who's paying the socalled employer as well as the employee share. The reason why Congress created the fiction of the employer share was to deceive us into thinking that we're paying fewer taxes than we in fact are. By the way, all those other nonwage benefits that a worker receives are in fact paid for by the worker such as health insurance, retirement benefits and childcare services. Without these nonwage benefits, money wages would be higher. During WWII, Congress imposed wage and price controls making it illegal for companies to compete for employees by offering higher wages. That's when we saw many companies start to offer nonwage benefits, such as health insurance, as a means of competing for employees. Nonwage benefits turn out to be good for the employee because, for the most part, he pays no taxes on them. In other words, if the employer paid the worker the cash value of, say, health insurance as wages, the worker would have to pay income taxes on it and then go out and buy health insurance. The bottom line lesson is that if you think you're getting something for nothing, or somebody else is paying for something you receive, you'd better give it another look. Walter E.

On the contrary, I have animals of my own and anyone that knows me knows how much I do care for animals. I just recently helped to feed a stray dog for 8 months until an alternate method could be found, so I feel for the dog left in the city truck, but I feel I cannot and will not let this incident pass without letting my feelings be known. Sally Roman is a friend of mine and she is a very caring person, I feel one incident does not define a person, you need to look at the over-all picture. Sally did not use her best judgment leaving this dog in her truck, but if she says that it was never in danger, then I believe her. I met Sally when I went around to the shelter to volunteer my services. I could not help because of the city being afraid they would be sued if I were to be bitten by one of the animals, so I did what I could to help her. Sally served this city well, she did her job, as hard as it was. How many of these “concerned citizens” know what her job was? How many of them have ever been around to the shelter or even know where it is? Do you know that when she had to go pick up the animals that were thrown out, or turned over to the shelter because they could not be fed any longer, or just plain was not wanted any more, she knew what was going to happen to them. You can go to Wal-Mart on most any day and see animals left in hot cars, you can see this in any of our shopping parking lots, this is a common thing here in Live Oak. Do we the “concerned citizens” go in and have these people paged? Do we the “concerned citizens” stand around the car and make a fuss? Of course not, did this being a city truck make the difference here? Did any of you consider what was going to happen to this dog, ask if he is still at the shelter? Sally’s job was t kill beautiful, healthy animals at least once a week if not more. To the one who said she should not be working for the city, are you going to take her place, can you do her job? Has your indignation at this one incident been satisfied? Now take your concern and go see the animals at the shelter, offer to foster one or two so they can have the time for a home to be found for them, or even better, you give them a home. I wrote a letter to the editor, several months ago, in it I described the conditions at the shelter, I ask the citizens of Live Oak to go around to the shelter and offer their help. Do you know how many “concerned” citizens went around there? Not one person, not one group! Yes you heard me right! Not one!!! My husband and I are very disappointed in the outcome of this incident. Sally did not deserve being made to resign. She served this city well, she did the best she could at her job. There should be laws for leaving an animal in a car, laws for throwing them out by the side of the road, but until we the people take the responsibility that we should have taken when we got our animals, and do our best for them, then there will not be animals to be killed. If enough of our “concerned citizens” get involved in the shelter, then who knows, maybe then things could be changed. I do intend to let the ones who handled this incident know my feelings. This incident was not handled the best way. Sally should have been appreciated, instead she lost her job. I say Shame on the ones who caused it!!! Sheila Weaver Live OakFROM OUR READERS

And I was very happy to read in the newspaper that Wednesday that J.M. Holtzclaw made it in the primary. He's been a dedicated school board member who has made a positive impact on what happens in our end of the county, especially for the students and teachers of the Branford schools. Congratulations, J.M.! And congratulations to all those who won their seats in this primary. And I want to repeat what I said in last week's article: Now that this local primary election is over, don't forget you have an even greater responsibility coming up in November. Do your homework!!! Check the Internet, if you have a computer, for as much information as you can get about those people who are running for office, especially in Florida. Read all the information furnished in this newspaper. And please remember ... if you do not vote, you are saying you don't really care what happens to our state, to our country. And if you do not vote, then you do not have the right to criticize those who do get elected that you don't like, or whose policies and political views and determinations you don't agree with. Take a lesson from the elections in 2008!!! Labor Day weekend is coming up quick, folks! Traditionally the last big weekend of summer to gather for a cookout with your friends and family, so I hope everyone has a great time. The kids are back in school, so be careful when you're driving early in the morning or when school is out. Slow down when you see them at the side of the roads waiting for the bus, or after they get off the bus after school and are walking along the road on their way home. I was in the Dollar Tree one day last week and noticed a very little girl standing over by some Christmas tree ornaments, a basket of those "picks" you can use on your tree or to decorate packages. She stood there very quiet, but then I saw her turn to a woman I think was her grandma and, pointing to the basket, asked when they were going to put up their tree and could she have what was in the basket to put on it! It seems Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations come out earlier and earlier with each year, don't you think? I'm trying my best not to get too upset over that ... I would expect Halloween to be the holiday of focus, but have seen only a few things out in the stores. I guess it's my age, but folks, I'm not in any rush to start celebrating just yet! I think buying for Halloween can wait until October, and buying those seasonal ornaments for Thanksgiving can wait until November, though I do agree, in this economy, if you want to give your family a nice Christmas, starting your holiday shopping in November is not too soon. When our children were small we counted on lay-aways started in October because it took some time (and some money) to buy for seven children as well as the young cousins. Too bad lay-aways are a thing of the past! I know a lot of young families that would benefit from that process. In recent years gifts have been exchanged strictly within the family and only on the grandchildren and great-grands who lived within a reasonable distance. The few who were too far away for a visit were sent gift cards to spend as they wished, and that was a limited amount. We have learned over the years to really concentrate on the meanings of the holidays, and to celebrate with sincere thanksgiving for what we have as a family, and to honor the true meaning of Christmas. So, as we head into the "fall" of the year, we are concentrating on those services and projects that mean something both to the person receiving as well as us, the givers. And it's not too early to start planning for that. There are several very worthwhile charities and causes right here in Suwannee County that will need a lot of help this year. Start learning about them, and deciding which ones will be the beneficiary of your time, your gifts, and your money. I want to extend my heartfelt sympathy to Wanda Petrena and her family on George's passing. It was a surprise to read about it in the newspaper. I remember reading George's articles, seeing him as he hustled around so many times taking pictures for the Branford News, running into him at various events all over the county, and always receiving a warm hello. He will be greatly missed. From Readers Digest "Quotable Quotes": "When I get one of those 'Mom' headaches I take the advice on the aspirin bottle: take two and keep away from children." -Roseanne Barr "Having a family is like having a bowling alley installed in your brain." --Martin Mull "No matter what you've done for yourself or for humanity, if you can't look back on having given love and attention to your own family, what have you really accomplished?" -Lee Iacocca "Everybody wants to save the earth; nobody wants to help Mom with the dishes." -P.J. O'Rourke "Human beings are the only creatures on earth that allow their children to come back home." -Bill Cosby "The other night I ate at a really nice family restaurant.

This is a sign of the times...no work, no income, no changes in this county to open up new jobs or bring in large business to employee our citizens leads to this!! MONEY! I'm say this wouldn't have happened any way...these men are criminals, but people will do desperate things in desperate times! WOW--AMAZING WHAT A LIFE IS WORTH THESE DAYS. I know all of these people and it just makes me sick to my stomach to think that anyone could and did do this. I hope they have fund with the money because it will be the last money they will have for the rest of their life.SAD-SAD-SAD!!!!!! I have spread their pictures all over my wall. No telling what state they are in by now. This is so sad. What businesses did they own? We need to always look out for each other and pay attention (not snoop) to our neighbors! REMAIN AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS This is horrible for this small county and hope they catch them soon before they harm someone else OMG scary.. 3 murders.. and so close to home.. OMG! What has Suwannee County come to? Glad I don't live there anymore. It's not a very nice place to raise a family in anymore. Suwannee county prolly is one of the lowest for murders so it's a big time shock when we have one and especially when a whole family gets murdered You NEVER hear of this kind of stuff in Suwannee County so when it does happen on this sad rare occasion its huge news!!! Not such big news when someone is murdered in a city where its common.Facebook fans say...Allen Hughes, 25, is in custody, charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery in connection with the murders, Suwannee County Sheriff Tony Cameron said. Hughes was arrested Friday. Cameron said it is not yet clear if Hughes was present during the robbery and murders. Cameron said Hughes is a former employee of the family. “He said he had worked on their farm,” Cameron said Friday. Cameron said it’s believed the three were preparing to sit down to dinner Wednesday evening when the intruders broke in. Cameron said the bodies were found Thursday morning around 7:30 by an employee of the family other than Riegel. The three victims, said Cameron, were found in one room in their 172nd Street home lying face down, side-by-side, each with a single gunshot wound to the back of the head. Cameron said widespread press reports of the three being tied-up are false. He said one gun was used in the murders but it isn’t yet known who pulled the trigger. Cameron said money was the motive for the crime and said he believed “the murders and the robbery were planned.” “We were told they always had thirty to forty thousand dollars in the house,” Cameron said after the press conference. “Do I think there was that much in the house, no. I don’t think there was that much in there at the time, I think there was a lot less.” Cameron said he believes the three acted alone in the robbery and murders. Riegel said she knew the family for about three years and worked as a personal assistant. “They were like grandparents to my children,” she said. She said she made appointments for the ailing Nancy Militello, who has been on dialysis for about two years and who required treatment three times a week. Angelo Rosales drove Nancy Militello to the doctor. “That’s why he was living there with them,” Riegel said. Riegel also served as bookkeeper for the Militello family businesses, which range from scrap metal and hay production to a used car business. Riegel said she met Joseph Militello while working for an auction company. When Nancy Militello fell ill, and “it was getting hard for her to see,” she came to work for them. The Militellos moved to McAlpin from Tampa seven years ago to “escape the big city,” said Riegel. Riegel said she had a special bond with Nancy Militello. “Nancy was my best friend and now she’s gone,” she said. Cameron said Howze and Munn may be driving a burgundy over silver, 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 regular cab, two wheel drive pickup truck, which is owned by Munn’s girlfriend. The truck has a covered bed, numerous stickers on the back window, and front end damage. “We believe the Florida tag assigned to the truck, H039CW, has been removed and replaced with a different, unknown tag,” according to a wanted poster. “They have told acquaintances they are going to Michigan or Ohio where they have family members, but they may have headed to the Tampa area where they are affiliated with the Black Pistons motorcycle gang.” Cameron said authorities are also “searching up and down the eastern seaboard and they could quite possibly be located locally in this state still.” Howze and Munn are each wanted on three counts of first degree murder, and one count each of home invasion while armed with a firearm; conspiracy to commit home invasion while armed with a firearm; and conspiracy to commit first degree murder while armed with a firearm. Howze is described as 6’4”, 280 pounds with a shaved head, blue eyes. He has a tattoo of a Swastika on his inner right bicep and multiple other tattoos. Munn is described as 5’9”, 165 pounds, brown hair, hazel eyes with multiple tattoos on his arms, legs, back and chest. If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of Howze and Munn, you are asked to contact the Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office at 386-362-2222 or Florida Department of Law Enforcement Special Agent Tommy Roper at 1-800-226-5630. Services for the three will be held locally at Daniels Funeral Home on US 129 North, Thursday at 3 p.m. A separate service and burial will be held in Dade City on Friday.DETAILSContinued From Page 1A being read in Live Oak? Some city councilmen say they’re not. However, the meter readers say they are and the “proof is in the paperwork at City Hall.” The topic has been debated a while now, but most recently came to a head last month at a budget workshop when, reviewing the 2010-11 proposed budget, Councilman John Yulee asked why the public works department needed a new meter reading truck. Yulee said the department doesn’t need one because the meters aren’t being read. Not true, say Billy Law and Keith Touchton, the city’s only meter readers. “Everybody has this impression that you have to uncover all the dirt and grass from a meter, but it’s not true,” said Touchton. “If we walked up to every meter and dug out the dirt and removed the grass over it, we would never get finished. Yeah, there’s grass growing over it, but most of the time the lid to the meter doesn’t even get removed.” Touchton said that in some cases, he and Law merely have to lift the lid with a screwdriver, look in, read the numbers and move on. When dirt covers the dial, Law said they use the screwdriver, move the dirt aside on top of the meter, just enough to read the numbers and move on to the next one (both scenarios were witnessed by this reporter on three separate meters). Law said they don’t have time to dig out the dirt, and since they only carve a small half inch or so line in the dirt to read the numbers, the dirt quickly fills back in. They have about 5,200 gas and water meters to read in the city in a 20 day window. That averages to about 130 meters each a day. They said that’s not impossible. With their experience, about 30 years between the two, it gets done, they said. On any given day they miss a few, often due to weather, but they get read the next day. As for those that leave coins or rocks on the meter to see if the meter readers stopped by, Touchton said they put them right back when they’re finished. “We want people to understand that we are trained for this job,” he said. “We have the experience and the knowledge that we have to perform this job with accuracy and efficiency.” Each meter reader has a handheld device containing each address along with its previous reading. Once they see the number on the dial they key it in. The handheld device “learns” a residence’s normal usage, so if a number gets transposed or the figure is significantly different than usual, the device emits a loud beep and asks the user if he is certain of the entry. If not he rekeys. Otherwise, the entry remains but is downloaded at City Hall and verified by a supervisor. Usually the pair get a number of re-reads in which the supervisor or the device didn’t like a certain read. Last month 91 were reread. In some the mistake was human error. “We do make mistakes, but we have those fail safe systems,” said Touchton. “We’re only human, people don’t realize that we have to work in 100 degree heat all day walking around in rain, dirt. It takes a toll on you and you’re going to mess up. But the end result is usually accurate. If not, it gets taken care of.” Law and Touchton said sometimes you will see them both riding together or just taking it easy under a shade tree. “We have to take breaks every now and again, you just have to,” said Touchton. “But that is the perception right there. They ride by and see us and think ‘they’re not doing anything, look at them just sitting there,’ but do they ever stop and ask if we’re OK in the heat?” In any case, there’s plenty of incentive to do the job and do it right, the workers say. “We’re monitored very closely [by OMI],” said Law. “By the time I kneel down and lift up the cover, the hard work’s already over. Why not go ahead and get the numbers? It would be silly of me not to.” Law referred to a recent entry in the Suwannee Democrat Rant & Rave column in which a caller had feared a high water bill following a leak, only to find the next month’s statement unchanged. Law said they only read the thousands on the meter, not the hundreds. In other words, if a water meter reads “425,099,” only the “425” is recorded. “If (the caller) had an inch of water in the kitchen and if it’s a basic kitchen size of say 12 by 12, then that’s only 98 gallons of water, so that won’t even be counted on her bill,” said Law. “We only bill by the thousands, not hundreds. You’d have to have 10 inches to get it there.” However, he said the “099” eventually rolls over and that is the reason why some people’s bill spikes one month for no apparent reason. “It’s going to get you eventually,” said Law. “We try explaining this to customers.” Law and Touchton both said the most complaints are received this time of year because folks use more water washing their vehicles, watering plants and lawns and for other outdoor activities. They say their bill goes up and the complaints start coming in. A minimum bill, for 3,000 gallons of water, is $12.08.WATERContinued From Page 1A

Open 7 days a Week We Fix Clubs 609618-F Q: What is bruxism? A: Bruxism is the name of a condition in which one excessively grinds and clenches one's teeth. It comes from a Greek word that loosely translates "to gnash the teeth." The condition can affect a person at night, during the day or both. Early symptoms caused by the condition are usually a dull headache or a painful jaw. Other symptoms could be painful, loose or noticeably worn teeth and a heightened sensitivity to cold and touch. In severe cases, bruxism can crack tooth enamel, chip or break teeth. During sleep, bruxism can cause a person's jaws to clench together with a pressure up to six times greater than the pressure during waking hours. A variety of factors can contribute to the onset of bruxism. Stress (and these days there's plenty of that to go around), a sleep disorder, an abnormal bite or crooked or missing teeth all can be factors. The best person to talk to if you're suffering from bruxism is your dentist. If it turns out that stress, for instance, is at the root of the problem, it's possible that physical therapy or counseling could help. In some cases, dentists will fit patients with a mouth guard that protect teeth at night. Presented as a service to the community by 571101-F ASK DR. MANTOOTH 362-6556 (800) 829-6506 HERBERT C.

Pharmacy & Your Health 617197-F Seizure & Epilepsy Treatments A seizure is caused by an abnormality of the brain. Seizures may be classified as nonepileptic or epileptic. A nonepileptic seizure can occur as an isolated incident. However, if seizures are recurrent , they are then classified as epilepsy . A seizure may occur as the result of a fever, concussion, or meningitis, among many other potential causes. A seizure typically lasts from several seconds to minutes. While affected by a seizure, a person may present symptoms that range from staring to convulsions. Partial seizures are characterized by changes occurring in only one part of the brain, while generalized seizures occur when there are changes in both sides of the brain. Seizures occur differently depending on the persons age. There are many medications available for the treatment of epilepsy. The type of treatment prescribed depends on the type of seizures. Anticonvulsant medications, such as carbamazepine ( Tegretol, Carbatrol ) and oxcarbazepine ( Trileptal ), may be prescribed. Phenytoin ( Dilantin ) is also an anticonvulsant that works to decrease the potential for seizures to occur. Primidone ( Mysoline ) is classified as an anticonvulsant which works to increase the seizure threshold and also to decrease the over-activity occurring within the brain. by Randy Johns, Pharm D Drive-up window SUWANNEE RIVER READINGS Branford 2010 Branford 386-935-1527 SCAFF'S Supermarket Sponsored By: 617662-F Aug. 25, 2010 9.59 Aug. 26, 2010 9.6 Aug. 27, 2010 9.66 Aug. 28, 2010 9.59 Aug. 29, 2010 9.61 Aug. 30, 2010 9.62 Aug. 31, 2010 9.62 The water levels provided here refer to the height at the US Hwy. 27 bridge in Branford in feet above mean sea level (ft-msl) at the gauging station.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2010 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 12A 617182-F The Suwannee River State Park and the Boy Scouts of America Troop 408 of Live Oak coordinated a Flag Retirement Ceremony recently to properly retire flags that have proudly flown at the state park. When the United States flag is no longer in the manner in which is should be displayed or shown, it should be inspected and retired, preferably by burning. The Scouts inspected the first flag set for retirement and pledged allegiance to it one final time. They then carefully separated the blue field of stars from the stripes and then they cut it apart stripe by stripe. The pieces were placed on a fire inside a metal fire pit. “Ranger Rianna had called to ask if our Troop would be interested in organizing a flag retirement ceremony for them. She had numerous flags to retire and thought that we could get the task done,” said Scout Cody Mayo. “I feel honored and very thankful that we had the opportunity to perform this service in our community. I would also like to thank all of the people who participated and took the time to attend the ceremony. God Bless America.” The Scouts retired 14 other flags during the ceremony. The Scouts’ love for their country, culture and traditions was further evident by their recognition of honored guests that they chose to receive the grommets from the flags retired that day. The grommets are a form of good luck to be carried or worn around the neck of the person who receives one. For the Scouts, the grommets are a small token of appreciation to honor the men and women who serve our country, state, county and community. The Scouts honored 1ST Vice Commander Randy White of the American Legion Post 107, a 20 year veteran of the United States Navy; Sgt. Lohlein of the Florida National Guard; Marshall Wayne Wilson II of the Florida Division of Forestry; Craig Lines of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection; Sgt. Danny Watson of the Suwannee County Sheriffs Office; Suwannee County Fire Chief Charlie Conner; Live Oak Police Chief Buddy Williams and Rianna Elliot of the Suwannee River State Park. After the ceremony the ashes of the flags were removed and buried by the Scouts as a final show of respect.

According to court records, Reppert admitted violating his probation, received jail credit for time served, and was assessed $250 in attorney’s fees. Kelie Jean Branham, 42, of 4590 East Behind Bar, Live Oak, was sentenced to three years in prison on a count of trafficking a controlled substance. She was handed five years of drug offender probation on that count and four others including: a drug offense within 1,000 feet of a church; the sale, delivery and purchase of a controlled substance; and two counts of possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell or deliver, all counts to run consecutively. Branham received jail credit and a 2-year suspension of her license. In addition, she was ordered to pay over $51,500 in court costs and fees with a civil lien administered in the amount of $49,500.

Fields received 427 days of jail credit, and must serve 60 months of drug offender probation consecutive to his prison sentence. Judge Bryan issued a suspension of Fields’ driver’s license for two years and ordered the 57year-old to pay over $1,400 in court costs and fees. Joel Lee Smith, 30, of 13093 177th Road, Live Oak, was sentenced to prison in two separate cases Aug. 24. In one case, Smith admitted violation of probation and was sentenced to 15 months in prison on a count of grand theft. He was ordered to pay over $250 in attorney’s fees. In a second case, Smith also admitted violation of probation and was sentenced to 15 months in prison on a count of cocaine possession to run concurrently with the case mentioned above.

COURTSEight receive ‘hard time’ in Live Oak teachers union was initially hesitant to get on board for the program, were reasons for concern. Though those are no longer specific worries, there are still more layers of the RTTT program unfolding as the race moves on, another district official explained. “There’s still some question because in addition to the district receiving funds, money provided to the Florida Department of Education will inherently benefit the districts,” said Vickie Music, chief financial officer for Suwannee County Schools. Therefore, the potential exists for Suwannee County to benefit, not just monetarily, but also from special services provided under the umbrella of the RTTT. What’s the Scope? Currently, participating districts, including Suwannee, are each in the process of presenting their own individual scopes of work to the state. The scopes are extensive explanations of how the districts intend to improve their lowest performing schools, reward the best teachers largely based on a merit pay system and increase the academic achievement of students through new programs and technologies. The state, similarly, was required to provide its own scope of work to officials in Washington, D.C. “The district is comprising a scope of work, which will model the state’s plan,” said Music. “Locally, questions lie in how successful the district can negotiate its plan (scope of work) between (itself) and its employees. It will have to be a plan that encompasses all stakeholders.” If district administrators are unable to come to agreement with all stakeholders, especially teachers, regarding the scope of work, the district’s chance in the competition could still be cut short, Music said. She emphasized that there is little time for sitting on the fence. “Meetings between the district and its stakeholders will begin immediately,” she said. At the end of the the day, one thing remains the same. Unchanged is the fact that Florida is set to receive $700 million in grant funds, 50 percent ($350 million) of which will be doled out to participating school districts statewide. The $992,216.46 intended for Suwannee, is expected to be allocated at roughly $250,000 per year for four years, Music added. Continued From Page 1ASuwannee’s share of Race to the Top: $1 millionBy Carnell Hawthorne Jr.carnell.hawthorne @gaflnews.comAnyone who has shopped at Wal-Mart in Live Oak lately may have noticed some major changes taking place. On Aug. 8, the store at 6868 US 129 began an extensive renovation and remodel, according to a company news release. Taking a cue from customer feedback, the company’s higher-ups decided it was time to perform a major facelift on the store, which has been a staple in the Live Oak community since 1998. “The store will receive a full remodel from the inside out and will represent the latest in Wal-Mart’s store design and customer experience,” according to store officials. The new design will feature a cleaner, brighter look with wider aisles, low-profile shelving, a bright interior paint scheme, new lighting and easy-to-read signage all geared at helping customers find the products they need more quickly.Local Wal-Mart to get a new lookJohn Nicholas Reppert Kelie Jean Branham Jerry Lee Fields Joel Lee Smith Michael Lee Benoit Victor Lee Carnahan David Hunter Gettinger Cassius Rudolph Rossin “We are excited to bring an improved shopping experience to our customers,” said Live Oak Store Manager Julie Jacobs. “We listened to our customers and are redesigning the store to make shopping at WalMart even easier.” In addition to the new design, the store’s update will include a new floor plan and product assortment. The aim is to align the store’s layout with the products customers purchase the most, officials said. Though shopping at Wal-Mart in the interim may seem somewhat challenging, store employees and management are doing everything they can to make the experience a pleasant one, according to one manager. “We’re making sure that we’re greeting all of our customers and asking them if they need help finding anything,” said Leondra Howard, shift manager on duty Monday morning. As a convenience to customers, the store has remained open during the remodel, including all departments and services. Maps of the new layout are provided at the entrance and directional signage will be located throughout the store, officials said. As an added courtesy, the majority of construction and moving is performed during the overnight hours. The completion date of the remodel is set for midOctober and will be followed by the store’s grand-reopening on On Oct. 22. Anyone with further questions or concerns is asked to call 386-3302488.

If this sounds like you or someone you know, then keep readingƒ So many people believe that once they get dentures, all of their dental problems will be over. This belief is actually far from the truth. One of the biggest problems with dentures is that they become loose over time. The reason for this is that the body begins to break down the bone in the mouth. So many denture wearers find themselves coming into the dental office every 2-3 years for expensive denture relines. The other major problem is gagging. This is very serious and can be embarrassing. Whatever your problem may be, we do have a solution for you. Its called Denture Stabilization and is achieved with Implants. Denture-retaining Implants have been around for more than 20 years and have drastically improved the quality of life for so many patients. If you are tired of poor-fitting dentures and, more importantly, you want to stop your bone from shrinking, then come by and talk with us here at Smile Designs by Dr. Charlotte Gerry, or visit us on the Web at www.smiledesignsbydrcharlottegerry.com.

Section BWednesday, September 1, 2010Suwannee Democrat SPORTS SPORTS Who let the Dogs out?By Corey Daviscorey.davis@gaflnews.comJACKSONVILLE-A day before the high school football season was to begin, Arlington Country Day School (ACD) in Jacksonville dropped a bomb on everyone by withdrawing from the Florida High School Athletic Association. By dropping out, the none of the school’s sanctioned sports are eligible to win state championships. ACD competes in district play with Lafayette in football and Melody Christian in basketball, softball and baseball. ACD athletic director and boys basketball coach Rex Morgan told the Florida Times Union, “We have officially withdrawn from the FHSAA effective immediately. We enjoyed ourBy Corey Daviscorey.davis@gaflnews.comLIVE OAK-The Willie Spears era got off to a bang with a 38-0 win Friday over visiting Chiefland in the Kickoff Classic. With a handful of starters out due to injuries, Suwannee had to look to other players for help. Among the missing was starting quarterback Jimmie Taylor, who was nursing a pulled groin. Taking his place was senior Jackson Brown. Two plays is all it took for Suwannee to grab the lead and the only points the Bulldogs would need. Senior tailback Greg Swinson (119 yards on 11 carries) took a handoff from Brown and raced 80 yards untouched keyed by a Brown block to give the ‘Dogs an early 7-0 lead on the second play from scrimmage. Suwannee held Chiefland to a three and out on its first possession and took advantage of a 6-yard punt from Jamantye Thompson, converting a 30-yard field goal to lead 10-0 with 5:06 left in the first quarter. On its third possession, Suwannee drove 67 yards in 18 plays getting inside the 5-yard line before Swinson was hit at the line of scrimmage on fourth down. On the ensuing play, Chiefland fullback Josh Berger ran three yards before being stripped of the ball, which was recovered by Derek Smith at the Chiefland 9 yard line. Jackson appeared to hit Andre Zanders two plays later for an apparent score but Suwannee was flagged for holding. Brown hit Marcus Lane for a 12-yard gain on a screen pass and Brown followed with a 6-yard touchdown run increasing the lead to 17-0 with 5:48 left till half. Lane picked off a well overthrown Deric Allen pass to set up another Bulldog score before the half. Brown connected with Lane for 10 yards and Zanders (6 catches for 101 yards) for 13 yards to bring the ball to midfield. Back-to-back passes to Lane (4 catches for 59 yards) for a combined 37 yards brought the Bulldogs inside the 10 yard line. Brown kept it on a option keeper scoring from 10 yards out as the ‘Dogs led 24-0 with 1:19 left till half. Chiefland ran out the clock to head into the locker room down 24-0. Melody Christian’s run towards a playoff appearance got a little easier with ACD dropping out of the district. ACD was the dist rict runner-up in baseball last season, while Melody was the fourth seed. RIGHT: Suwannee tailback Greg Swinson looks down field for room against Chiefland.

ACD was fined $1,000 by the FHSAA in 2000 for recruiting violations in multiple sports and fined nearly $30,000 in 2002 for unsuccessfully appealing after being put on restrictive probation in boys basketball. According to the Times Union, following a loss in the Class 2A state championship game in 2001, several ACD players were seen throwing their runner-up medals in a trash can. The FHSAA responded by placing the boys basketball program on one year’s probation and restricted them from playing in the postseason tournament the following year. When the school and several players families filed a lawsuit against the FHSAA before the 2001-2002 season attempting to reverse the decision to allow it to play in the postseason tournament, the FHSAA responded by adding two more years to ACD’s penalty, including a hefty fine. An anonymous source told the Democrat that several ACD basketball players from out of state and out of the country, were being housed in an apartment paid for by the school, an obvious violation. The FHSAA was investigating the basketball and baseball teams, which also housed several foreign players as well. According to the FHSAA, the investigation will now be suspended and would only be reopened if ACD decided to try and rejoin the association. In lieu of the move, ACD did not show up to its scheduled kickoff classic at Andrew Jackson leaving them blind. By dropping out of District 2-1B in football, eight other teams including Lafayette must find another opponent to play as well as non district games against Yulee and Baker County. Morgan told the Times Union he anticipated the Apaches would likely play an eight game schedule including games against Potters House Christian and other independent schools in Florida and Georgia. Now schools like Lafayette and Melody Christian will have to fill holes in their schedule. Lafayette head football coach Joey Pearson was shocked by the move. “One of our assistant coaches saw the article on the Times Union web site and told me,” Pearso said. “I was very surprised especially to see it so close to the season. Usually thats something you see in the offseason. I’m shocked to see it before the season. ACD was one of the better teams last year.” As far as replacing its scheduled game Oct 29 in Jacksonville, the Hornets will try to find someone else to play. “We will have to advertise on the FHSAA classifieds page and see if we can find someone with the same open date,” Pearson said. Melody Christian basketball coach Mike Raines will also have to redo part of his schedule as his Wildcats competed in the same district with the Apaches last season. Although Raines team has been highly successful the last three years, they haven't won their district or advance past the first round of the state playoffs, because of other private schools that recruit kids from all over the country and other countries. Arlington Country Day brings in kids from North Carolina, Maryland, Puerto Rico and other states as well and houses them in off campus apartments. "Arlington Country Day is not on our level, we've been very good the last three years winning 73 games, but for my kids it's hard to compete with them in the same district,” Raines said. "ACD has been to six straight Final Fours and had won five state championships until this season, I can't beat them,” Raines said. “One of my players plays travel ball with some of their kids and they told them about how they all live in a apartment together. It doesn't Continued From Page 1BACD withdraws from FHSAAtake a genius to figure what's going on over there, although you can't accuse someone without evidence.” With ACD out of the way now, Raines team should be able to compete for its first district title now having to compete in District 3-1A against similar programs like them including Eagle’s View, Mandarin Christian, Seacoast Christian, Esprit deCorps and First Coast Christian. corey.davis@gaflnews.com Season tickets for sale Suwannee High football season tickets are now on sale at $40 per seat in the Main Office 8 a.m. till 3 p.m. daily.

Come by Promotion ends September 22, 2010 at 5 p.m. SPORTS Through the first half, Suwannee accumulated 256 yards of offense, while holding Chiefland to 26 total yards and 13 offensive plays. Chiefland was stuffed on a fourth and three play on its opening drive of the first half as Berger was met head on by Alex Falleck and Swinson. Swinson appeared to score again on the next play, taking a handoff 39 yards but it was called back for holding. Under the no huddle offense, Brown got his team up to the line quickly and threw a strike to Zanders for a 12 yard gain. Two plays later, Brown hit tight end Zach Randolph across the middle who walked in the end zone for a 24-yard score increasing the lead to 31-0 with 6:34 left in the third. With the lead over 30, a running clock was implemented allowing the game to end faster. Following another three and out series by Chiefland, Suwannee struck again as Brown hit a wide open Zanders for a 46-yard score making it 38-0 with 2:56 left in the third. Chiefland kept its first team offense in the game despite the score, while Suwannee brought in its second team on defense. Continued From Page 1BWho let the Dogs out?Berger fumbled the ball over to Suwannee on the third play of the series, but got it right back as the second team offense led by quarterback Josh Wright fumbled the ball away. However, Suwannee’s second team defense preserved the shut out. “That was very important (the shutout). We work very hard and that gives us a lot of confidence, hopefully we can do the same thing next week,” Suwannee senior lineman Tre Robinson said. Spears was happy with the performance but knows his team has a long way to go. “We got a long way to go, this is just a jamboree, our goal is to get better each week,” Spears said. “This is huge for us, I’m excited but we have to get better. We had a big crowd tonight and I’m looking forward to going up against the legend next week.” The legend Spears was referring to is former Suwannee coach Mike Pittman, who brings his Hamilton County Trojans into Paul Langford Stadium this Friday. Dating back to the spring game 21-0 win over University Christian, the Bulldogs have now shut out both of its opponents under Spears. “We shut out UC in the spring as well, we hope to keep that streak alive each week,” Spears said. “Our goal each week is if they (the opponent) can’t score, they can’t win.” Suwannee sophomore quarterback Josh Wright (19) eludes Chiefland lineman Leonard Allen (21).

At that time it was a family project, and it continues today. We are excited about our expanding partnership with WLVO and our ability to grow our business. Radio is a perfect fit and a great asset to the Park.” Cornett continued, “Don Miller has been a stalwart in the bluegrass community nationwide. He has helped facilitate this dream of our late Uncle Charles, and we are grateful. We hope to work with Leon Petterson and Don Miller to expand programming, including more musical genre’s and talk show formats. Our intent is to also open this studio on the web to listeners world wide, including our Spirit of the Suwannee guests. Streaming live on the world wide web has the potential to reach hundreds of thousands of guests who can listen to the activities in the Park in real time as they happen, staying in touch with the Suwannee River Valley and encouraging future visits to the Park and local community.” Bob and Jean Cornett, who started the SOSMP 25 years ago, have hosted Kentucky’s oldest bluegrass festival, the Festival of the Bluegrass in Lexington, Ky., for the past 36 years. Jean has brought many famous bluegrass artists to the SOSMP. She has also helped develop the Suwannee Spirit Kids Music Camp, held four times a year at the SOSMP, to interest kids age 4-17 in learning the instruments of bluegrass. Miller began his bluegrass show at Lake City’s Power Country 102.1 as the doctor of bluegrass. A week after completing nine years there, Miller began his 10th year of the program at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, his first love. “When Bob and Jean (Cornett, SOSMP founders) came in the gate, I was right behind them as the UPS man! I‘ve been coming here ever since!” Miller said. Miller is no longer the UPS man, but he’s produced many bluegrass shows at the SOSMP headlined by national artists and is also part of the International Bluegrass Music Association where he is stage manager for artists during its annual convention and fan event. “Every year we have fan fest for three days. I’m lucky enough to be the stage manager and get to meet everyone who performs. I usually take a cooler full of Nettles’ Sausage (from Lake City) with me,” Miller noted with a sly smile. “Mike Snider said he likes to see me but would rather see the sausage!” Miller quipped. Miller is an accomplished banjo picker who was invited in 2003 to play on the Grand Ole Opry. “I felt like a jackass at the Kentucky Derby, but I enjoyed it,” he said, giving that laugh thousands of bluegrass fans are very familiar with from his bluegrass show. He’s also entertained former President Continued From Page 1 Radio debuts at the SpiritNow hear this: Jimmy Carter and his family at one of Carter’s family reunions. Miller’s passion for music led him to purchase just about every kind of instrument you can imagine. He plans to have occasional jam sessions during the radio show in the future that is sure to be a hoot! You never know who might just stop by to play live on a Sunday afternoon at Florida’s premier camping and music park! Come out and get your cameras ready! Broadcasting from 5-7 p.m. every Sunday afternoon from a quaint, rustic little studio in the Arts and Crafts Village, “Doctor” Don Miller will bring his rib-tickling brand of humor to the station along with the old-time bluegrass music made famous by the late Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys. Monroe and his group entertained thousands of fans at the SOSMP just before Monroe’s death Sept. 9, 1996. Monroe is credited with inventing the music we know today as bluegrass when he took old-time Appalachian music, added blues and gospel and invented a radical new sound in the 1930s-40s, vastly different from anything heard before. Many of the great musicians who played with Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys over Monroe’s 60 plus years in the business such as Chubby Wise, Vassar Clements, Peter Rowan and others have also entertained at the beautiful SOSMP. Other entertainers include Alison Krauss, Ricky Skaggs, The Seldom Scene, IIIrd Tyme Out, Mountain Heart, Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys, Jim and Jesse McReynolds, Jerry Douglas, Valerie Smith, Chubby Wise and many, many more. Additionally Beth and Randy Judy have brought numerous bluegrass artists to the Park as well, including Doc Watson, Bela Fleck, Tony Rice, Jim Lauderdale and many, many others. Peter Rowan will be among those playing at the upcoming Magnolia Fest at the SOSMP Oct. 21-24 produced and hosted by Beth and Randy Judy. Now, with the advent of the new radio studio, Miller will broadcast the often haunting combined music of the mandolin, fiddle, guitar, bass and banjo on the very ground where the most famous bluegrass, country, jazz, Americana/Roots, rock ‘n roll and other musical greats have entertained and left their musical footprints forever embedded in the hearts and minds of thousands of fans. It’s possible if you listen real carefully, you might just hear Bill Monroe’s “high, lonesome sound” wafting through the big oaks on the banks of the famous Suwannee River during your next visit to the SOSMP. Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park Radio host Don Miller works the phones Aug. 8 while broadcasting his bluegrass show in Arts & Crafts Village at the Spirit. Courtesy photo

SEPTEMBER 1 & 2, 2010, PAGE 3CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE WWW.NFLAONLINE.COM SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA To place an ad on this page, please call Nancy at 386-362-1734 Ext. 103 The skin is your bodys largest organ, so its no wonder there is such an abundance of products and advice available to help keep it in top form. While many products and practices are touted as being the bestŽ for your skin, the truth is, when it comes to skincare there are often more myths than facts. The wise consumer should know how to separate fact from fiction. The skincare experts who make CeraVe(R) cleansers and moisturizers want to help everyone put their best face forward -and that means learning the truth about healthy skincare. MYTH: Skin is protected from the sun when you use a product with a high sun protection factor (SPF). FACT: Some SPF products only block against one type of UV ray, generally UVB, or the rays that cause sunburns. In reality, the sun showers us with UVA, UVB and UVC rays. UVA rays, which have an aging effect, penetrate into the lower layers of the skin and should be protected against as well. That means you should look for a sunscreen that is clearly labeled broad spectrum,Ž not just ones with a high SPF number. MYTH: Deep scrubbing of your complexion prevents breakouts. FACT: Cleansing with harsh soaps or exfoliating scrubs can strip the skin of vital natural oils and compromise its protective barrier. Harsh and frequent, more than twice a day, cleansing can trick the skin into producing more oil and compound breakout problems. Scrubbing can also lead to skin sensitivity or rashes. MYTH: Facials are a beauty musthave. FACT: Facials can be fun and if done by an expert esthetician can help deliver a variety of benefits such as moisturization, deep cleansing and exfoliation. If you can afford a professional facial make sure youre in the handsŽ of an expert esthetician or you could wind up with irritation or scarring. MYTH: Wrinkle creams can completely eradicate wrinkles. FACT: These days there are many ways to eraseŽ the signs of time on the skin. The most effective ways are with injectable substances, fillers or plastic surgery. Professionally administered chemical peels and lasers can also help give your skin a fresher, more youthful appearance. Anti-aging creams cannot completely remove wrinkles,Ž but their formulas often contain ingredients such as niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and ceramides that deeply moisturize the skin and make it look more supple and radiant. MYTH: Doing facial exercises will tone facial muscles, providing a more youthful appearance. FACT: There has never been any substantiation for this beauty myth. In fact, certain facial movements such as squinting and laughing may contribute to the formation of wrinkles -maybe thats why we call them laugh lines and crows feet. MYTH: Expensive skincare products are better for your skin. FACT: Many mass-marketed products available at your local drugstore are just as effective as luxury department-store brands. In fact, many contain the same ingredients as their more expensive counterparts. Elegant packaging, advertising and luxury brand names are often what you pay for when purchasing more expensive products. CeraVe(R) cleansers and moisturizers, which contain ceramides, hyaluronic acid, cholesterol and niacinamide, found in pricier brands, also feature a patented technology that allows a single application to go a long way. The ingredients unravel slowly in the skin where they continue to work for up to 24 hours. CeraVe ® Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM, applied before bedtime, penetrates the skin barrier to lock in precious moisture. CeraVe ® Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM with SPF 30 provides broadspectrum protection against harmful UV rays year round. Its 24/7 skincare.

Black and her band will perform on Friday, Sept. 3 at a Let's Go Downtown "Free Fridays" concert, presented by the City of Gainesville Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs. Black mostly tours across Florida, but her talent has won her airtime on radio stations across the United States and in various countries such as Canada, Ireland, France, Belgium, Italy and New Zealand. Black's first album, "Call Me an Angel for Blues" (2007), was released in the U.S. and Japan and was named one of the Top 5 Contemporary Blues Albums by Blues Critic Radio. The album also spent 22 consecutive weeks on Billboard's Roots Blues Chart, and hit No. 3 on the Sirius Satellite Radio charts. Black's latest album, "You Just Might Win," was released in April 2009 and has since hit the charts in 2010 at XM Satellite Radio and Roots Music Report. Black is critically acclaimed for her songwriting and has written more than 500 original songs since she first found her passion for music at the age of 12. She was born in rural Illinois, but now lives in the Tampa Bay area. An artist in every sense of the word, Black is also a‘Angel for Blues’ Julie Blackto perform at ÔFree Fridays'Blues singer Julie Black. Courtesy photopainter and sculptor. Both of her albums contain her original artwork. Black has performed at many major events, such as the Clearwater Sea Blues Festival, Tropical Heatwave and Gasparilla Festival of the Arts. She has also played at nationally known venues the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and the House of Blues. While acknowledging her unique sound, critics liken her to artists such as Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt, Janis Joplin, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Jim Morrison, Carol King, Billie Holiday and Lennon and McCartney. She's shared the bill with many of music's biggest names including Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, John Mayall, Johnny Winter and Bette LaVette. She performs with her tight band of hand-selected, world-class musicians including sublime guitarist Dave Eichenberger (one of the Steinberger family of artists), keys monster Michael Johnn, rock solid bassist "Father Bill" Spicuglia and soulful drummer Frankie Timpanelli. The Let's Go Downtown "Free Fridays" Concert Series runs from 8 to 10 p.m. on Friday nights from Friday, May 7 through Friday, October 15. The Bo Diddley Community Plaza is located on the corner of Southeast First Street and East University Avenue.

In fact, I play almost every weekend. Sad to say, it was one of the contributing factors to my recent divorce. After a brutal division of assets, my ex-wife fought to get my custom golf clubs as a final jab at our separation. Since then, I've been playing with my old set that I had stored in the garage. I thought I had gotten over the loss of my clubs until I met up with my buddy recently on the golf course. He was playing with a new set of clubs. "That looks like a nice set," I admired. "It sure is," he laughed. "and you're ex-wife gave me a great deal on them!" (Thanks to Benny T.) Reader Humor Laughs For Sale Duane CashŽ Holze & Todd CarryŽ Holze www.ClassifiedGuys.com Get a Receipt Whenever you buy an item from a private party, make sure you get a signed receipt from the seller. No matter how big or small the item is, get it in writing. The receipt should include a description of the item (including serial numbers if applicable), the date of the sale and the purchase price. The seller should include his or her address, phone number and sign the bottom. Should any discrepancies arise about the sale, you will have a written receipt to protect yourself.Women RuleWho wears the pants in your family? While many guys like to think they are in charge, the truth is that women typically control the household. According to the Women's Consumer Network , women control 85% of all personal and household spending decisions, and make 75% of their family's financial decisions. However guys, if you decide you want to be in charge of something in your house, it's really not a problem. All you have to do is get your wife's permission first! Fast FactsDear Classified Guys, I went to look at a canoe for sale and the woman selling it offered to sell me an outboard motor,fishing poles and all kinds of fishing gear as well. The prices were so good that I bought everything.The next week I enjoyed a great fishing trip on the river.But when I returned,I received a call from the woman's husband saying his wife sold all his things while he was away on business.Now he wanted them back.Ten minutes later,his wife called me and said under no circumstances should I sell that stuff back to him.She didn't want it back in the house.I love all the fishing gear,but I sympathize with the husband.Any suggestions what I should do?€€€Cash: Sounds like another fishing trip may be in order. It would be a lot more peaceful than dealing with this couple. Carry: You never know the circumstances that may arise after you make a purchase. In your case, you fell into the middle of a marital squabble. Cash: It's like you were the first one in line for the divorce sale before the actual divorce!Carry: At the time of purchase, you had no reason to believe anything was wrong. Since the couple is still married, it's likely she had the right to sell you the items and you can go ahead with your fishing expeditions without worry.Cash: However, if you're feeling remorseful about the purchase of all the gear and want to resolve the situation, here's what you can do. Call the wife back. She is the one you should speak to since she sold you the items.Carry: Explain that you do not want to be in the middle of their personal matters. However, if she would like you to sell the items back, you would be willing to do so.Cash: And although tempting, it's probably not a good idea to raise the prices. The husband seems upset enough. Imagine what he'd say if you doubled the prices when you sold it back?Carry: If the woman turns down your offer, then your conscience is clear and you can plan that next fishing trip.Cash: But if the woman does take you up on your offer, then maybe it's time to look for a new hobby.

SEPTEMBER 1 & 2, 2010, PAGE 9CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE WWW.NFLAONLINE.COM SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA THE ethics of point-of-sale coupon pads, and how shoppers shouldnt take more than they can reasonably use. Here is a hypothetical version of a similar situation. Your family loves Cereal X. A supermarket ad has it listed for a terrific price; its such a great deal that youre ready to stock up. At the store, you find just six boxes of the cereal on the shelf. Without knowing if the store has any more in the stockroom, do you buy all six or do you leave some for other customers?Ž A: Im asked this question often. As a coupon shopper, I do stock up during great sales. So, would I consider myself a shelf-clearerŽ? Its never my intention to clear the shelves at any store, although, as this reader points out, when theres a great sale going on smart shoppers who spot the deal may wipe out the stores stock before the sale ends, especially if the store didnt anticipate demand for a particular product. Any time I speak with a group of coupon shoppers, it quickly becomes clear that when it comes to great sales, there are two camps in the world of couponing. Some feel that shopping is a first come, first servedŽ situation. Others believe shoppers should buy in moderation and leave some behind for other shoppers. To me, a shelf-clearer is someone who will buy a disproportionately large quantity of an item, more than theyll likely use any time soon 20 or more of the same item comes to mind. Theres a difference between buying a reasonable number of products and buying everything in sight. If, in the above example, I want to buy six boxes of cereal and there are only six boxes left on the shelf, I will likely buy them even if theyre the last six in the store. My logic is this: if its a particularly hot item, theres not much difference if I buy four and leave two (which will be snapped up by the next shopper, leaving the shelf bare) or just buy six (also leaving the shelf bare.) Stores often receive stock several times a week. While these may be the last six boxes of this particular cereal at this time, tomorrow night the shelves could be full again. Understand, too, that if a product takes up a lot of space on the shelf, it also doesnt take many shoppers to clear it out completely. One of my stores had a great sale on vegetable oil, which was involved in a Catalina sale. Shoppers received a $10 Catalina back for buying 5 bottles of oil. But how many bottles of one brand of vegetable oil are normally on the shelf at the store? Perhaps 20. So, the first four people that came in to buy 5 bottles cleared the shelf until it was restocked. I do find it interesting that when the shelves are empty during a great sale, shoppers blame other shoppers. I look at the other side of the equation. Why didnt the store anticipate that the products in question would move quickly off the shelves? Stores know well in advance what their sales will be, though they tend not to look at these ads through the same eyes as a coupon shopper. When stores are better prepared to anticipate what shoppers will buy during a great sale, they can try to order enough stock to meet demand. The flip side of this is that stores also dont want to over buy, and be stuck with too much of a particular item. When all else fails, though, dont forget to get a rain check. Many stores offer rain checks, which will ensure you can buy the item at the same price (usually for the next 30 days) once its back in stock.
