Notes

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

to soar
Fees to rise 32%;
lower garbage rates
will help offset hike
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
Businesses in Live Oak face a 32
percent increase in sewer rates,
prompted in part by the underpopu-
lation of the local prison.
The City Council tentatively
agreed Monday to a 4-year rate plan
that will raise residential rates grad-
ually, beginning in 2011 with a min-
imum hike of $1.66 per month.

Thank you
The family of Walter "Walt" Engelhard wish to
thank everyone for all their support during this most
difficult time. We wish to share this poem which ex-
presses all we would like to say:

Perhaps: Author Unknown

Perhaps you sent a lovely card,
or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you sent a funeral spray,
if so we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words,
as any friend could say.
Perhaps you were not there at all,
but just thought of us that day.
Whatever you did to console our hearts,
We thank you so very much, whatever the part.
Thank you,

your fence is better than just ignoring it and having to
replace it every few years. Don't forget to paint or
stain the ends of the boards as well. This is open end
grain that will be exposed directly to the elements, and
if left unpainted or unstained, moisture will very easily
work its way down into the boards, rotting them as it
goes. It's easier on you (and better for the paint) if you
don't work in the direct sun or during the heat of the
day. Direct sun will make the paint dry too fast and it
won't be able to provide proper protection. For more
information contact the paint professionals at Live Oak

Treatment Options for Bronchiectasis
Bronchiectasis involves a continuous productive cough due to an infection.
There is blockage of the airways as well as inflammation of the airways.
Wheezing, difficulty breathing, and chest pain are symptoms of this
condition. Bronchiectasis occurs more commonly in women, and the risk
of being affected by the condition increases with age. Cystic fibrosis is a
medical condition that can lead to bronchiectasis. Cigarette smoking may
also increase the risk of this condition.
Antibiotics may be prescribed for treatment of coughing episodes and to
reduce the risk for another infection. Fluoroquinolone antibiotics, such as
ciprofloxacin, may be used. Tobramycin (Tobi) is an inhaled antibiotic that
may also prescribed. These medications may also be taken at the same
time. Inhaled glucocorticoids, such as fluticasone (Flovent), may be used
to reduce inflammation of the airways. For those also affected by cystic
fibrosis, dorase alfa (Pulmozyme) may be prescribed. It works to decrease
the thickness of mucus, which allows air to flow better through the lungs.
Persons with the condition also may be affected by gastroesophageal
reflux. A proton pump inhibitor, such as omeprazole (Prilosec), or an H2
blocker, such as cimetidine (Tagamet), may be used for suppression of
stomach acid. 617197-F

THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLER



Not my




job


By Jim Holmes
Many a convicted murder escaped dying in
Florida's electric chair because of legal appeals,
but it appears only one could say he actually sat in
Old Sparky and lived to tell the tale.
Jim Williams, an African-American man from
the Palatka area, had been convicted and sentenced
to death for murdering his wife. Historian Vivien
Miller tells us his execution at the Florida State
Prison was scheduled for a spring day in 1926. It
is here that his story takes a bizarre twist.
Williams was escorted to Old Sparky and
strapped in ... a black hood placed over his head.
Prison Warden J.S. Blitch announced he had per-
formed his duty. As prescribed by Florida law, he
had delivered a convicted murderer to the electric
chair. Now, it was the legal responsibility of the
sheriff -- in this case Putnam County's R. J. Han-
cock -- to carry out the actual execution.
At this point, the details are hazy. We know there
were two officials from the Putnam County Sher-
iff's Department at the execution. Whether Sheriff
Hancock was one of them or whether they were
two of his deputies is unclear. What is clear, how-
ever, is that neither man would throw the switch,
each saying it was the legal responsibility of the
other.
News reports of the day say the argument went
on for at least 10 minutes. Meanwhile, Williams
sat in the electric chair nearby waiting for someone
to do the deed.
The warden finally stepped in, ordered the exe-
cution postponed and had Williams -- who must
have nearly died of fright, if not electricity -- es-
corted back to his cell. Jacksonville columnist Bill
Foley would later write that the event so trauma-
tized Williams that he would not sit in any chair for
weeks after the incident.
At a loss over what to do next, the warden kicked
the issue upstairs to Florida Governor John W.
Martin. When he heard the tale -- and the chilling
ordeal Williams had already experienced -- the
state's chief executive apparently could not bring
himself to schedule a second execution date. And
so the convicted man's death sentence was com-
muted to "life."
But Jim Williams unusual story doesn't end
there.
In the coming years, he would become known as
a model prisoner ... and eventually a hero!
News stories of the day say that Williams was
being transported in a prison truck when he spotted
a woman (some reports say there was also a child
involved) being charged by an angry bull in a near-
by pasture. Without hesitation or regard for his
personal safety, he jumped from the vehicle and ex-
ecuted a daring rescue. He then returned to the
prison truck and once again took his seat. His act
of valor was such that in 1934 --nine years after he
was to die -- Jim Williams was pardoned and set
free.
By the way, there apparently was a valid juris-
dictional issue in those days about who could legal-
ly carry out Florida's executions. It was significant
enough that the Florida Legislature would eventu-
ally step in. Beginning in 1941, an official "state
executioner" was given the responsibility. For
each execution the individual performs, the part-
time employee -- who remains anonymous -- is to-
day paid the grand total of $150.
Jim Holmes lives in Live Oak.

OPINION



Profit versus non


"Philadelphia Scandal Under-
scores Pitiful State of Public
Housing Oversight," read i
Jonathan Berr's Aug. 28 report in
the Daily Finance. It was a story
about Carl Greene, the embattled
director of the Philadelphia Hous-
ing Authority (PHA). He was put
on paid leave while the board in- �
vestigates charges that he settled
four sexual harassment claims BY WALTI
against him without notifying the
PHA, doled out work to politically connected law firms
and pressured employees to donate to his favorite nonprof-
it. Greene is also being investigated by the U.S. Attorney
General Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and
HUD's Office of Inspector General. They have yet to bring
criminal charges against him.
People always act surprised by revelations of political
corruption but the Philadelphia Housing Authority corrup-
tion is highly probably in nonprofit entities such as gov-
ernment. Because of ignorance and demagoguery, being
profit-motivated has become suspicious and possibly a
dirty word. Nonprofit is seen as more righteous. Very of-
ten, people pompously stand before us and declare, "We're
a nonprofit organization." They expect for us to believe
that since they're not in it for money, they are somehow
above self-interest and have the public interest as their mo-
tivation. There's little much further from the truth.
People are always self-interested. It's just when they
manage a nonprofit organization such as the Philadelphia
Housing Authority, government entities in general, univer-
sities and charitable organizations, they face a different set
of constraints on their behavior. The fundamental differ-
ence between nonprofit organizations and their profit-mak-
ing counterparts is that nonprofits tend to take a greater
portion of their compensation from easier working condi-
tions, more time off, favors and under-the-table payments.
Profit-making organizations take a greater portion of their
compensation in cash, except those that are highly regulat-
ed.
In the profit-making world, there is much greater moni-
toring of the behavior of people who act for the organiza-
tion. Profit-making organizations have a financial bottom
line they must meet, or sooner or later, heads will roll. Not
so with nonprofits, who have no bottom line to meet. On
top of that, incompetence for nonprofits means bigger bud-


A gets, higher pay and less over-
sight. That description aptly fits
INORITY one the nation's largest nonprofit
organizations -- the public educa-
VIEW tion establishment.
Profit is vital to human well-be-
Sing. Profit is the payment to entre-
preneurs just as wages are pay-
2010 Creators Syndicate ments to labor, interest to capital
and rent to land. In order to earn
ER WILLIAMS profits in free markets, entrepre-
neurs must identify and satisfy hu-
man wants and do so in a way that economizes on society's
scarce resources.
Here's a little test. Which entities produce greater cus-
tomer satisfaction: for-profit enterprises such as supermar-
kets, computer makers and clothing stores, or nonprofit en-
tities such as public schools, post offices and motor vehicle
departments? I'm guessing you'll answer the former. Their
survival depends on pleasing customers. Nonprofits, such
as public schools, post offices and motor vehicle depart-
ments, survival depends mostly on pleasing politicians.
When a firm fails to please its customers and thereby
fails to earn a profit, it goes bankrupt, making those re-
sources available to another who might do better. That's
unless government steps in to bail it out. Bailouts permit a
business to continue doing a poor job of pleasing cus-
tomers and husbanding resources. Government-owned
nonprofit entities are immune to the ruthless market disci-
pline of being forced to please customers. The same can be
said of businesses that receive government handouts.
It's this ruthlessness of market discipline that forces
firms to please customers, economize on resources and
thereby earn profits or go out of business and goes a long
way toward explaining hostility toward free market capi-
talism. And much of the hostility toward free market capi-
talism is held by businessmen. Adam Smith recognized this
in his "Wealth of Nations" when he said, "People of the
same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and
diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against
the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices." Their
co-conspirator is always government.

To the Editor:

I've been out of town and just now getting caught up
with my news. I was reading the September 10th edition of
the Suwannee Democrat and was amazed at all the com-
ments against the lady whose children has to be subjected
to what ever radio station the bus driver selects. Personal-
ly, I support the lady. I believe that there shouldn't be mu-
sic or any other entertainment - the exception being per-
sonal entertainment devices allowed by parents - on the
buses. It's a distraction to the drivers who are in charge of
precious lives while the children are on the bus.
When I was a child, I had to ride the bus to school. We
were one of the first stops made on the route to school and
the reverse route going home we were one of the last stops.
It was about a 30 to 40 minute bus ride each way. During
that time we were expected to sit quietly in our seats for the
ride. The bus driver was one to be respected and obeyed. I
can remember misbehaving on a few bus rides. My bus dri-
ver would escort me into the principal's office if going to
school and explain my bad behavior. If it was on the way
home he would escort me to the front door and explain to


one of my parents my bad behavior. If they weren't home
(unusual at the time) then a letter would be written and
mailed home. I never did intercept any of those letters, but
I digress. My parents freely disciplined me when I misbe-
haved in school, on the school bus and at home.
The point I want to make here is that bus drivers, school
teachers and school administrators are not baby sitters.
They should expect that parents be active in their child's
development and schooling. Parents are not doing their
part. I've raised children and now I have grandchildren. I
am proud of my grandchildren as they are well behaved,
study hard and earn good grades in school. Occasionally
my daughters take the time to thank me for being a parent
to them. Parenting includes unconditional love and sup-
port and when warranted, discipline. My daughters are all
grown up now. They are wondering how their children's
friends are going to make it through life as they don't see
the parenting that they received or are giving to their own
children. Frankly, I don't know either.
Sincerely,
Mike Chase

GUEST COMMENTARY


Working together to combat stress,


substance use disorders


By Wayne Godsmark
Substance use disorders are a treatable, yet serious health
problems often occur due to a variety of external circum-
stances, including stress. Addressing this problem and find-
ing a positive outlet for dealing with stress is now more im-
portant than ever, given the many causes of stress that ex-
ist today. In the spirit of the annual National Alcohol and
Drug Addiction Recovery Month (Recovery Month) cam-
paign, I'm urging all residents of Suwannee County to
take a few minutes and recognize the negative impact
this disease has on our community.
It also is important for all people to understand that re-
covery is possible through a variety of treatment resources
and recovery support programs.
Having worked in the recovery field conducting faith-
based support groups for six years, I have firsthand knowl-
edge of the devastation that stress and addiction brings to
people and their families. Addiction is a real issue, with an
estimated 23.1 million people needing treatment for an al-
cohol or illicit drug use problem in 2008, according to the
2008 National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Locally,
many people face this problem.
The good news is that we can help people address their
addiction and live a healthy and productive life in recovery.
Together, we can do the following:


* Encourage our friends, colleagues, or family members
who are suffering to enter treatment facilities or seek re-
covery resources.
* Reach out to individuals throughout our communities
to prevent stigma against people receiving treatment ser-
vices on military bases and in adult living centers.
* Offer all people in our community strategies to combat
and manage stress, such as learning to reduce unnecessary
or extra responsibilities, exercising regularly, identifying,
removing, or reducing the source of stress, or seeking pro-
fessional support or assistance.
This September, in conjunction with the Recovery
Month commemoration, I call on all people in Suwannee
County to improve the lives of those suffering from addic-
tion, support individuals in recovery, and recognize the in-
dividuals who work in our community to provide recovery
services. To maximize this opportunity, I urge local busi-
nesses, churches, government agencies, and community or-
ganizations to showcase details about local treatment and
recovery resources on their Web sites and link to addition-
al information available at http://www.recoverymonth.gov.

O'BRIEN AND OUR NEIGHBORS



'Bits & Pieces'



from south



Suwannee Co.
By Ana Smith
This is going to be a short article this week; not much to
report, actually, but a recap of a couple of worthy causes
for you to think about. The first is the plight of the Allen
family, and little 5-year-old Dakota who was mauled by a
dog at a child's birthday party. If you read about him last
week, then you know that the medical bills keep coming
in, and the family is in dire need of help. There is a fund
set up at the Branford Capital Bank to help the family. If
you have ever been in a situation like this, and especially
in this hurtful economy, then you know how scary this can
be for this young family. Please help. Bring your dona-
tions to Capital Bank, and help lift some of this burden, all
from an unexpected but devastating event.
And don't forget the charitable works of the Lynch fami-
ly and all their helpers and friends who provide a free meal
the last Sunday of each month for homeless men, women
and children. The number of people/families they serve
each month continues to grow. If you are doing your fall
cleaning and have items that could be sold at a flea market
to raise money for the food and supplies needed to keep
this effort going, please call Roger Burnside at 935-3343
to arrange for the drop-off or pick-off of your donations.
And always, money donations are much appreciated.
Roger is also very involved in the Christmas "Toys for
Kids" that provides toys, winter chil liii-. and food baskets
for Thanksgiving and Christmas for families down here in
our end of Suwannee county. It is not too early to be
thinking of that need, and to put this particular charity on
your list for the coming holiday season. That group served
a lot of families last year, many of the members digging
into their own pockets to make up dinner and a few toys at
the last minute for a couple of families who were hard hit
by job loss/income loss right at holiday time. And with
the extreme cold we experienced last winter, the need was
great, especially for the children who needed heavy winter
coats. We all know how quickly children outgrow such
things each year. With no income, or increased bills due to
the extreme increases in just heating the home, there were
many families who could not provide these things for their
children. As you plan for your yearly charitable cause,
please remember this organization. You will be so richly
blessed!
I took a little trip last week to visit my grandson and
meet his family; what a lot of fun! Not only spending time
with a grandson I haven't seen in almost six years, but en-
joying the laughter and antics of a 2-year-old granddaugh-
ter and 3-year-old grandson who took a lot of delight in
my wheelchair. Notes and cards and an occasional phone
call just doesn't mean as much as that personal visit, and
we hope to visit a lot more often now that they have
moved a lot closer to me up to Spring Hill, near Weeki-
Wachee waterpark. Random messages via e-mail are now
daily "talks" on Facebook and e-mail. Keep reading ALL
the pages of this newspaper for activities coming up all
through the coming months. There is something to do just
about every weekend, so make plans for family and friends
to enjoy together.
Also this weekend is the 54th Annual Suwannee River
Riding Club's RODEO. It will be held on Friday and Sat-
urday, Sept. 24 and 25, at the rodeo grounds just north of
Branford on highway 129, starting at 8 p.m. The parade
will be on Saturday, starting at 3 p.m. This event is fun for
the entire family, and the price of admittance is very rea-
sonable. Come early enough for good seats in the bleach-
ers!
From my e-mails ... church signs:
"The best vitamin for a Christian........B 1."
"Try our sundaes........they are better than
Baskin-Robbins."
"Come in and have your 'faith' lifted."
"Can't sleep? Try counting your blessings."
"Try Jesus! If you don't like Him, the devil will
always take you back."
"Aspire to inspire before you expire."
Even in the worst of times, God is there to talk
with you and help you.
Remember that!!! God bless!

A local auto dealer has joined forces with Comprehensive Community Services to make it easier for local residents to
recycle ink cartridges and more. Pictured here are David Haney, owner of Wes Haney Chevrolet of Live Oak, and Janet

ing efforts
The planet is threatened by the plastic that is in most
printer ink cartridges, say experts. That is one of the
amazing things that clients of Comprehensive Communi-
ty Services learned in a class they recently attended on
"Improving Our Environment." The plastics used in
printer cartridges are made of an engineering grade poly-
mer that takes from 450 to 1,000 years to decompose. In
addition to having a long life, printer cartridges may leak
ink, polluting the area groundwater.
If you've been throwing your inkjet and toner cartridges
in the garbage up to this point, you're not alone. It's es-
timated that more than 13 cartridges are discarded in the
U.S. every second. That's hundreds of millions of car-
tridges that end up in landfills every year, made with plas-
tics that can take at least 1,000 years to decompose.
"Our clients are always looking for ways to help the
community, and they talked about what they could do and
decided to take action by starting their own STOP, DROP
& RECYCLE Program for printer ink cartridges, laser
cartridges, cell phones and MP3 players," said Janet
Sampson, CCS Development Assistant.
Wes Haney Chevrolet has agreed to help with the cam-
paign by allowing CCS to place a convenient recycling
drop-off box in their showroom lobby in Live Oak.
"For years, we've supported the great work that the
staff at CCS does and thought this would be another way
we could help their clients" said David Haney, owner of
the dealership. "We just hope the local community gets
behind this program because we'll all benefit in the end."
Noted Sampson, "We talked with a number of our local
business partners who have also agreed to work with our
clients on helping to keep the community clean." Addi-
tional sites where area citizens can drop off used printer
cartridges, cell phones and MP3 players are Suwannee
Valley Electric, Live Oak City Hall, the Suwannee Coun-
ty Tax Collectors office, and CCS's main office at 511
Goldkist Boulevard in Live Oak. In addition, CCS is
currently accepting used or out dated ink cartridges, laser
cartridges and cell phones at any of the drop-off sites.
Area residents and businesses may call Janet Sampson
at 386-362-7143 Extension 5 for more details on how
they can help.

ASK DR. MANTOOTHI


Q: What sort of problems can develop with
the tongue?
A: A relatively common problem is an
inflammation called glossitis. The condition
is charactenzed by disappearance of the
hair-like projections, call papillae, on the
top of the tongue. The tongue will take on a
reddish-purple color and can become quite
painful. You may also feel a burning
sensation and swallowing may be difficult.
In another condition called geographic
tongue, only patches will lose the papillae
and create borders of yellow or white. The
patches may heal and the condition may hit
another area. This condition is sometimes
called migratory glossitis because it
appears as though the patches are moving.
People who suffer with geographic tongue
often have a condition called fissured
tongue, meaning the tongue has a deep
fissure that runs along the top surface.
Fissured tongue is congenital. One of its
dangers is that food can collect in the
fissure, causing inflammation. The only
treatment for fissured tongue is to keep the
crevice clean by brushing and using
mouthwash. Talk with your dentist about
these and other problems that can affect
the tongue.

Stuart and Jackson Brown


get a taste of the political life at Boys State


Submitted
Stuart and Jackson Brown were the first brothers
-- twins, no less -- to ever represent American Le-
gion Post 107 at Boys State in Tallahassee. Five-
hundred thirty-five boys from all over the state of
Florida met in Tallahassee for a week-long session
to learn about state and local government.
The Browns visited the State Capitol Building 3
times and saw where the state legislature meets. On
one occasion, the Commissioner of Agriculture,
Charles Bronson, spoke to the Boys State partici-
pants about how to become a politician. Stuart was
elected Senator to represent his district. Jackson
was elected as a city councilman and as a House
Representative for his district. As part of the leg-
islative branch, both Browns participated in debat-
ing bills and passing legislation on Florida laws --
having four bills go through the House of Repre-
sentatives, through the Senate and on to Governor
Crist's desk.
Both Stuart and Jackson had a lot of fun and met
many boys with whom they developed lasting
friendships. One such friend is Charlie Brown (no
relation), who was elected Governor of Boys State
2010. Stuart and Jackson served on Charlie's cam-
paign and helped get him elected. Charlie was later
elected President of Boys Nation 2010. These three
boys are fine examples of the caliber of students in
attendance this year.
The week passed by too quickly, according to


Jackson.

Real Florida

Gardening
There is a lot of talk
these days on using native
plants for our Florida
Landscapes. If the right
Native plants are chosen
they are drought tolerant so
they save water and they
will thrive in our hot hu-
mid summers and they are
gorgeous unique plants.
Would you love to learn
more about Florida's native
plants? Or do you already
know about Florida's na-
tive plants and would just
like to meet others with the
same passion? Or would
you like to get involved
helping those in the com-
munity around you under-
stand the importance of
preserving all our wonder-
ful native plants? Come to
our "Meet & Greet" to kick
off the start of a local
chapter in southern Suwan-
nee County on October
12th, at The Gathering
Cafe, 26804 State Road
247, Branford, at 6:30 pm.
Florida Native Plant Soci-
ety meetings are open to
the public and you do not
have to live in the county
where the meetings are
held. For more informa-
tion contact Betsy Martin
@ 386-935-2453 or Carol
Sullivan @ 364-9309.


Stuart will always remember the experience as
well.
"I was somewhat hesitant wondering what the
week would be like, but I ended up having an ab-
solute blast and I thoroughly enjoyed the once in a
lifetime experience," he said.
Stuart and Jackson would like to thank the Amer-
ican Legion Post 107 for giving them this incredi-
ble opportunity in attending Boys State 2010.

Medical emergency leads to fatal


Staff
A sudden medical emer-
gency caused a single-ve-
hicle crash on 1-10 Friday
that resulted in the death
of a Neoga, Ill. man, the
Florida Highway Patrol re-
ported.


According to FHP,
James L. Phillips, 53, was
westbound on I-10 about
three miles east of US 129
at 11 a.m. when he sud-
denly lost consciousness,
causing his 1997 Chevy
pickup and the travel trail-


er he was towing to veer
right, onto the grassy
northern shoulder. His
passenger, Julie A.
Phillips, 45, also of
Neoga, steered the vehicle
left, causing it to veer back
into the westbound travel

Com'l sewer rates set to soar


Continued From Page 1A

However, commercial cus-
tomers will bear the great-
est load, with commercial
sewer rates to rise by near-
ly a third.
To help offset the in-
crease, city officials low-
ered the garbage rate on
commercial customers. A
minimum garbage bill will
decrease 9.8 percent from
$63.19 to $56.97 a month.
The problem stems from
an agreement by the city to
provide reuse water for
Suwannee Correctional In-
stitution. The prison, which
can hold 3,293 inmates,
had only 1,299 as of Sept.
16, however, so water use
-- and utility revenues -- re-
main far below projections.
No one knows when or if
the inmate population at
SCI will increase. It didn't
rise during the 2009-10
budget cycle, as promised,
which led to the current
round of rate increases.
Farley said at a recent
budget workshop that
SCI's warden expects to
soon be receiving 50 to 75
inmates a week.
"They've opened up the
annex which will also open
up a laundry and a new
cafeteria, so (the warden)
said the flows will be going
up," said Farley.
Farley said he was told
that by December 2 there
should be about 3,000 in-
mates at the prison, which
could eliminate the need
for a rate hike altogether.
The city was supposed to
receive $734,000 from the
prison to cover current debt


on phase II of the waste-
water treatment plant,
some $448,000, for the
2009-10 budget cycle.
However, as of mid-Au-
gust, only about $324,000
had been received.
Councilman Adam Prins
said he didn't like the idea
of determining the 2010-11
budget on a "maybe" and
said the local residents and
commercial customers
shouldn't have to suffer for
it.
"We've already got that
money to make up because
that was budgeted then,"
said Prins. "I don't want to
see us fall into the same
trap this year."
If the funds aren't re-
ceived from the prison,
businesses in the city will
be hit yet again: the de-
crease in the garbage rate is
only set to be in effect for
one year.
Local business owner
Brent Wainwright, owner of
Suwannee Health and Fit-
ness, told the council Mon-
day he's fed up with all the
increases, and said his busi-
ness is at the breaking
point.
"The consensus, it seems,
is to take (the increase) and
pass it on. But, we don't
have the luxury to increase
rates and essentially pass it
on," he said. "Why are the
local businesses being pun-
ished in this situation for
the lack of foresight in this
situation?"
Wainwright said the pro-
posed increase would raise
his utility bill by $600 a
year, on top of his skyrock-
eting property taxes, which


have led him and his wife to
help fund employee payroll
out of their own pockets.
"I feel like it's such an
exorbitant rate," he said.
"Do you think we can stay
in business here long?"
Marion Gross, owner of
the Big B night club,
agreed.
"I need some help," she
told the council Monday.
"My business is barely sur-
viving as it is."
Local real estate agent
Ronnie Poole said Tuesday
he knows city officials have
to do what they must, but
"hates to see anything go
up. I would certainly not
like to see any utility rates
go up if they could help it."
Finance Director Jan
Parkhurst said she, Farley
and other staff members
will review the budget over
the next couple of days to
determine one possible al-
ternative.
At Monday's meeting it
was revealed that Code En-
forcement Officer David
Caban had been fired hours
earlier for insubordination.
(See related story, Page 1A.)
In response to a move to
eliminate the position alto-
gether, Farley suggested
that the post remain in the
budget, but recommended
the council leave only
$15,000 of the $47,009.91
budgeted for it. Farley sug-
gested the remainder,
$32,0009.91, be used to
help offset the 32 percent
sewer rate hike.
The city is expected to
have a proposal on the mat-
ter at the Sept. 28 meeting
at 6:30 p.m.

Code officer fired after all


Continued From Page 1A

He was fired at 2 p.m. at
City Hall.
The move to oust Caban
at last Tuesday's council
meeting was a cost-cutting
measure by Councilman
Adam Prins. That move
failed in a 3-2 vote with
Councilman Bennie
Thomas voting with Prins
to combine the position of
code officer and building
inspector.
Monday night during a
recessed meeting at City
Hall, Prins again made the
motion to abolish the code
enforcement position.
"I felt that in light of to-
day's occurrence, I think
that we go ahead and abol-
ish that position," said
Prins. "I am an advocate
of code enforcement ... I
just feel like we need to
combine that with (the
building inspector posi-


tion)."
City Administrator Bob
Farley suggested that the
position remain in the
budget, but recommended
the council leave only
$15,000 of the $47,009.91
budgeted for the position.
Farley suggested the re-
mainder, $32,0009.91, be
used to help offset an an-
ticipated 32 percent sewer
rate increase on commer-
cial customers. (See relat-
ed story, Page 1A.)
The $15,000 would be
used for code enforcement
matters generally, say offi-
cials. It is not clear if city
building inspector Roy
Rogers will take over Ca-
ban's duties, as Prins had
earlier proposed.
Farley and Finance Di-
rector Jan Parkhurst are
scheduled to submit a pro-
posal on how to use the
$32,000 to help defray the
proposed commercial util-


ity rate increase at a Sept.
28 meeting at City Hall at
6:30 p.m.

Caban was nearly fired
in September 2007, when
the City Council voted 3-2
to terminate him at least
partly in response to citi-
zen complaints that they
had been cited for viola-
tions on property they did
not own.
However, then City At-
torney David Robertson
advised the Council that
only Farley could fire Ca-
ban. Mayor Sonny Nobles
directed Farley not to do
so.
In January 2008 Caban
was suspended for 5 1/2
days after officials learned
he had violated city policy
regarding possession of
alcohol on city property
and use of a company ve-
hicle during working
hours.

point a second vehicle

was made to move the

John Odom Edwards III,

backed the vehicle onto
153rd Road, said FHP. In
the process, he struck the
1997 Toyota SUV of the
McAlpin resident who'd
stopped to help, Scott Dou-
glas Koehn II, 17.
Both Yon and Edwards
were charged with DUI,
according to FHP. Yon was
also charged with driving
on a suspended license.
No one was hurt in either
accident, including
Koehn's passenger, 15-
year-old Danielle Koehn,
also of McAlpin.

ers to help clean the
Suwannee," said Olson.
"At the kick off event, we
will host a barbecue and a
few of the organization
leaders will address those
scheduled to come help."
Unprecedented in its in-
ception, the major cleanup
is planned for the Florida
portion of the Suwannee
River, from the Georgia
line to the Gulf of Mexico,
and will take place during
September, October and
November.
"Though this isn't our
first major project, it defi-
nitely will be our longest,"
Olson said. "We generally
clean urban creeks, lakes
and streams, but this is a
much larger undertaking.
We've even got a small
group of cave divers who
have actually volunteered to
help."
Current Problems will
arm volunteers with the
necessary cleaning supplies
such as trash bags, gloves,
debris grabbers, nets and
scales. The bulk of work
will be performed on Satur-
days and Sundays, Olson
said.
"We don't bother any nat-


ural debris such as fallen
limbs, but focus on remov-
ing cans, bottles, paper and
plastic."
Officials at the SRWMD
expressed their gratitude to
Current Problems and its
volunteers for taking on
such a momentous task.
"I think any effort like
this that draws attention to
our rivers is wonderful,"
said Edwin McCook, land
management specialist.
"We would support any
group doing a project like
this."
Bobby Toothaker, Park
Manager at the Suwannee
River Wilderness Trail, was
floored by the organiza-
tion's willingness to per-
form a cleanup of the
Suwannee.
"I think it's great to have
a bunch of folks come to-
gether for this common goal
of cleaning the river," he
said. "The way folks have
come out of the woodwork
to help, I think, is over-
whelming."
In the end, Olson said she
hopes the project will raise
awareness and get more
people to appreciate the riv-
er.

legs. When asked what the
beverage was, Thomas re-
portedly said, "A beer."
When asked how many
beers he had consumed that
night, Thomas replied,
"Two," the report shows.
Thomas was then asked
to step out of his vehicle, at
which point Everett report-
ed the odor of alcohol on
Thomas's breath and that
Thomas had trouble main-
taining his balance while
standing.
Thomas was then asked
if he was capable of per-
forming field sobriety ex-
ercises. He noted that his
ankle had been injured dur-


ing military service but re-
portedly said, "I can try to
do them."
According to Everett,
Thomas "would not follow
the directions for any of the
exercises" and "told differ-
ent stories of the events of
the night up to the time of
the stop."
Thomas was then ar-
rested on suspicion of
DUI and transported to
the Madison County jail,
where he reportedly re-
fused a breathalyzer
test. Thomas was then
transported the Suwan-
nee County Jail on
charges of DUI and re-
fusing the breathalyzer
test. He was later re-

GAMETIME


lan


wake


By Cody Webb
Call me biased, but I
can't help but enjoy a game
that stars a writer stuck in a
nightmare world of horror
and action. This is exactly
the situation that Alan
Wake finds himself in dur-
ing the events in the game
of the same name. That's
right, folks, after five years
in the making, Remedy has
finally delivered Alan
Wake. And I'm pleased to
say, the wait has been,
mostly, worth it!
First off, the team at
Remedy deserve definite
kudos for crafting such a
brilliant story. Using a,
slightly paraphrased, line
from the story: "A good
horror story needs victims,
near-misses, the hero al-
most has to die," would be
a great way to describe the
story. The narrative flows
naturally, with proper slow
points and tense action mo-
ments. It's something that
seems to be rare in today's
games, and I'm certainly
looking forward to another
entry in this series.
The story stars writer
Alan Wake, who, along
with his wife Alice, de-
cides to vacation in the
small town of Bright Falls
to hopefully get over two-
year case of writer's block.
However, the night they
get there something myste-
rious happens and Alice
winds up missing, Alan
himself waking up a week
later in his crashed car. Not
having any memories of
the past week's events, he
sets out to discover why
he's finding pages of a

manuscript he doesn't re-
member writing with
events that are coming true
around him and where Al-
ice has gone.
This game is gorgeous,
simply put. While the char-
acter models themselves
don't stand out very much,
the environments alone are
enough to make players
stop and stare. And most
likely die, because you
shouldn't stop while you're
being chased. Luckily
though, most of the truly
panoramic views are
shown during the daylight
hours, where the only ene-
my is you staring for too
long at the mountains and
forests that surround the
small town of Bright Falls.
Alan Wake also delivers
a very atmospheric experi-
ence, using the concept of
light versus darkness ex-
pertly. Light blooms and
shines brightly, almost
blindingly in some areas,
cutting through the dark-
ness and giving players
something to run towards.
Other times the ambient
sounds and surrounding
darkness is enough to
make players tense, espe-
cially when the wind starts
picking up and shadows
start racing across the
ground.
You can tell they put a
lot of effort into the little
touches: Alan's jacket
moves and ripples realisti-
cally as he runs about, the
grass and leaves shake and
rustle, and even Alan him-
self are great examples of
this. See, being the writer
that he is, Alan can't sprint
for miles or action roll like
most of the action heroes
seen recently. If players
make him sprint for too
long, his gait becomes
staggered and tired, while
his dodges are merely him
stumbling out of the way.
Remedy did a truly
amazing job of bringing
the world of Bright Falls
alive, from all of the extra


dialogue you can go out of
your way for, to the pitch-
perfect voice acting. Alan
Wake is an amazingly im-
mersive experience, one
that I recommend for any-
one who loves a good hor-
ror story.
But if you don't care for
story, you'll still love Alan
Wake's frenzied action seg-
ments. Alan's main foe is a
mystical force called the
"Dark Presence", which is
capable of possessing any-
one and anything to try
and kill him. From normal
townspeople, dubbed the
"Taken" in-game, to bar-
rels, to even bigger things
like bulldozers, the
Prescene stops at nothing
to try and kill poor Al.
Unfortunately, this is
where Alan Wake's one
and only stumble takes
place: the controls. At first
they won't bother you too
much, he's very much ca-
pable of burning the dark-
ness off of his foes with
his flashlight and then fill-
ing them with hot lead.
Dodging is usually as easy
as pressing a button, and
timing it perfectly gets you
a nifty cinematic slow-mo
camera as you avoid the
danger. But later on, as
more and more of the same
enemies pop up, you'll be-
gin to get frustrated with
the too-slow controls.
Honestly, it becomes
easier to run than it is to
fight, dodging when neces-
sary. This doesn't seem to
be discouraged either, as
enemies disappear if you
can make it into the light
from streetlights, called
"Safe Havens". Most fights
you can run past, or run
away from, which is a very
fun experience to those
who want to try it out. It's
a little amusing to see the
writer scrambling away
from a horde of possessed
dudes with axes.
So would I recommend
Alan Wake? I definitely
would, even if you don't

Pregnancy Care Center Walk/Run set for Oct. 2


The Pregnancy Care
Center is hoping to
achieve the same kind of
success in 2010 as last
year's Live Oak Walk/Run
challenge. Local residents
walked, ran or rode bicy-
cles, bringing in over
$20,000 for the Center.
The three-mile course is
the same, the theme is "A


Chance for a Lifetime"
and enthusiasm is running
high at the center. With
the support of the commu-
nity again this year, Preg-
nancy Care Center can
better train new moms
and dads, children up to
age 2 will be clothed and
diapered and pre-borns
will be given a chance


for a lifetime!
Last year Donna
Sandage, Pregnancy Care
Center Executive Direc-
tor, introduced the Church
Challenge which added a
whole new dimension to
the Walk/Run. Not only
can you enter as an indi-
vidual, a part of a busi-
ness team or family


group, but your church
can also challenge another
congregation to compete
for a trophy to display for
a year. The current trophy
holder is First Baptist
Church of Live Oak.
The Pregnancy Care
Center is a non-profit
ministry that assists preg-
nant women. It is volun-


teer based and is a re-
source that helps moms
that cannot provide ade-
quately for their babies.
The Live Oak clients also
have access to sonograms
at the Lake City center
since it became a medical
facility in June. This in-
creases the viability of the
baby and helps to save


lives.
The Walk/Run will be
held Saturday, Oct. 2 at
the Suwannee Coliseum.
Registration starts at 8:30
a.m. A route map will be
provided for the three-
mile course. Food will be
provided and the local
group "Fifth and Baya"
will perform.


Tired of the heat and
can't wait for fall's cool
breezes, sights, smells and
sounds? Then join the Tan-
gles team Saturday, Oct.
16, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. for
their premier Fall Bazaar.
Ministry leaders Angie
Lott and Vickie Bass, have
announced they've sched-
uled their first Fall Bazaar
as a fundraising event for
Tangles, a Community
Outreach for Women.
"We are excited to an-


nounce a great opportunity
for our community to join
us at Tangles for this first-
time event. Not only will
we be introducing the Tan-
gles Gals' line of shabby
chic furnishings and gifts,
Shabby T, but we are look-
ing for vendors who have
hand-crafted or quality
food items to sell," said
Bass.
Added Lott, "If you
have handmade items such
as jewelry, quilts, hand-


AFM


sewn ch ,iliii-.. Christmas
or other holiday decor, art-
work or any other original,
unique creations, we'd
love to talk to you about
participating."
They are also seeking
vendors who sell heritage
food items such as home-
made cakes and pies, jams,
preserves, kettle corn and
traditional fall festival
food. Vending applications
can be obtained by e-mail-
ing vlb55@msn.com.

159th Homecoming

at Antioch Oct. 10
Antioch Baptist Church will celebrate its 159th
Homecoming on Oct. 10. This day is set aside
each year to reflect on God's goodness through the
years and to look with anticipation to His contin-
ued blessings and opportunities for the future. It is
a time for warm fellowship with church family
and friends and a time for friends and family to
rekindle fond memories while getting acquainted
with new friends and families in the church.
A special day is planned with special guests and
activities. At 9:45 a.m. the musical group Deliv-
ered will be ministering in music. Delivered is a
group of young people who are fulfilling their
calling of ministering through Southern Gospel
music. Their youthfulness, sincerity, and commit-
ment to their calling are an encouragement to peo-
ple of all ages. Singing new, uplifting songs as
well as bringing back songs of old is appealing to
all audiences. Delivered is no stranger to Antioch
and has blessed the church several times through
their music, testimony and support.
Rev. Hugh Dampier will be the special speaker
in the 11 a.m. service. Rev. Dampier is a beloved
former pastor whose bonds of love and friendship
remain close to the church. He has also served as
Director of Missions in the Suwannee and Beulah
Baptist Associations along with being active in the
ministry of serving an interim pastor for various
churches. Antioch Baptist is excited for the op-
portunity to hear Bro. Hugh share God's Word
and to rekindle the warmth of friendship with him
and his lovely wife Shirley.
Following the morning service there will be a
meal in the fellowship hall. The food and the fel-
lowship are sweet and abundant at Homecoming
and are always a blessing.
All church friends and family are cordially in-
vited to attend and celebrate Antioch's 159th
Homecoming. The church is located approximate-
ly 4 miles out County Road 795 (Boys Ranch
Road). For more information, please call the
church office at 362-3101.

'Dogs open district play next


By Corey Davis
corey.davis@gaflnews.com
FORT WHITE-Willie Spears'
motto is 'Get better every day.' For
the second straight week, his foot-
ball team has regressed.
Coming off a 35-0 beat down
from Madison County last week,
the Bulldogs surrendered a four-
touchdown performance from
Alexis Blake as host Fort White
dominated visiting Suwannee 52-
22 at Arrowhead Stadium Friday
night.
Blake (232 yards on 16 carries)
scored on the Indians' first two dri-
ves to give them a quick 14-0 lead

Branford drops
conference opener
By Corey Davis
corey.davis@gaflnews.com
JACKSONVILLE-Two weeks ago,
Branford put up 42 points in their sea-
son opening win over St. Francis, but
since then the offense has struggled.
Last week the Bucs accumulated sev-
en points in a 45-7 loss to Trenton, Fri-
day night the offensive woes continued.
With a bevy of tailbacks, Bishop Sny-
der (3-0, 3-0) utilized a combination of
a ground game mixed in with a potent
passing game to control the game and
clock in a 17-0 Big Ten Conference win


behind a 73-yard and 47-yard
touchdown runs.
Suwannee cut the lead to 14-6 in
the second quarter off a Greg
Swinson 2-yard run early in the
quarter. But that would be the clos-
est the Bulldogs would get.
Blake's 39-yard run, Colton
Jones' 19-yard field goal and Soron
Williams' fumble recovery in the
end zone, increased the lead to 31-
6 at the half.
Suwannee successfully converted
an onside kick and drove 47 yards
culminating with Jimmie Taylor
(11-for 36, 116 yards) hitting An-
dre Zanders for a 15-yard score,
cutting the lead to 31-14.


However, the momentum was
short lived as Williams returned the
ensuing kickoff 80 yards for a
score and just like that Fort White
was up again three scores 38-14.
Swinson (72 yards on 16 carries)
added a 14-yard touchdown to cut
the lead to 38-22 but again Fort
White answered back and tacked
on two more scores, a Blake 12-
yard run and a JR Dixon 51-yard
run to put it away.
Taylor returned to the lineup tak-
ing over for starter Jackson Brown,
who was sidelined with an illness.
Suwannee (1-2) opens District 2-
2A play traveling to Alachua for a
7:30 game with host Santa Fe.


Suwannee hasn't had much success
ing been to the playoffs since 1999.

Against



all odds

Area volleyball teams struggle

By Corey Davis
corey.davis@ gaflnews.com
According to history, before area volleyball
teams even started their first practice, they we're
already at a disadvantage.
It's been 11 years since Suwannee last made the
state playoffs in 1999, 40 for Hamilton County and
eight years since Branford last made it.
Lafayette broke through last season finishing
second in its district behind state powers Tallahas-
see Maclay and North Florida Christian (NFC).
Branford, Lafayette and Hamilton County's
downfall stems from having to go through state
powers in their own district.
NFC won eight consecutive district titles from
2002-2008, before Maclay stopped the streak by
winning the last two titles. Lafayette knocked out
NFC in the district semi-finals last season, stop-
ping the Eagles' long playoff streak.
Lafayette joins Hamilton in District 4-1A with
NFC, Maclay and Jefferson County. Maclay has

Bucs finish


second


By Corey Davis

ORANGE PARK-There is an old say-
ing, always a bridesmaid never a bride.
The saying couldn't be more true for
the Branford girls track and field team, as
the Bucs finished district runner-ups for
the fifth consecutive year.
With only a few remaining events left,
host St. Johns Country Day held a slim
1.5 point lead over Branford but the Spar-
tans pulled away to hold off the Bucs
219.50-191.00 to win its seventh consecu-
tive district title. Hilliard was third with
102 points, Bell was fourth with 41,
Hamilton County was fifth with 39, Tren-
ton was sixth with 11.50 and Lafayette
was seventh with 11.0.
Things started off well for the Bucs,
Logan Boss (7-06), Shantenna Cruz (7-
00), Jullianna Roush (5-00) and Traci
Baldeon (4-06) finished second, third,
fifth and seventh in the pole vault Tues-
day in Branford to pick up 21 points.
Boss (4-10) and Montana Bailey (4-08)
held off Hamilton's Jasmine Jackson (4-
08) to finish second and third in the high
jump. Baldeon (4-04) finished in a three-
way tie for fifth to give the Bucs 16.50
points in the event.
Hamilton's Bria Davis (14-05) finished
third, Branford's Olivia Boney (14-02)
finished fourth, Branford's Tiffany
Williams (13-09) was fifth, Hamilton's
Jasmine Dobson (13-06) was sixth and


Branford's Stephanie Copeland (13-05)
was seventh in the long jump.
Williams (29-07) finished second in the
triple jump ahead of Dobson (28-06) and
Branfordis Tiphani Whitley (26-03).
Copeland (35-00), Williams (27-09)
and Erica Clark (27-06) finished first,
third and fourth in the shot put, while
Hamilton's Jasmine Daniels (27-03) fin-
ished fifth. Copeland (98-00) made it a
sweep winning the discus.
Boney (13.78) and Bailey (14.62)
placed third and fifth in the 100 dash,
while Boney (29.23) finished third in the
200.
Melissa Dingus (1:10.90) and Kristel
Sanders (1:11.50) finished third and
fourth for the Bucs in the 400 dash.
Lafayette's Lauren Solano (1:14.40),
Hamilton's Samantha Marcano (1:17.70)
and Shelby Dodge (1:19.40) finished
sixth through eighth.
Bailey (2:45.90) placed fourth in the
800 and was joined by teammates Jena
Deas (2:58.20) and Katrina Hale
(2:58.90), whom placed seventh and
eighth, in the top eight.
Branford's Ashley Horn (5:53.00) held
off Lafayette's Kaley Koon (5:57.00) to
finish third in the 1600 run, while team-
mates Claudia Chance (6:43.00) and
Amiee Brasfield (6:55.00) finished sev-
enth and eighth.
Horn (13:00.00) placed second in the
3200, while teammates Kendall Hall


(14:44.17), Chance (15:50.00) and
Heather Woodman (16:51) finished fourth
through sixth.
Boss (19.07) and Lauren Suggs (20.37)
finished fifth and sixth in the 100 hurdles.
Boss (53.48) and Lafayette's Chanteria
Thornton (1:03.32) finished second and
sixth in the 300 hurdles.
Hamilton County (57.03) held off
Branford (57.39) to finish third in the
4x100 relay. Branford (4:57.98) was sec-
ond in the 4x400 relay and won the 4x800
relay with a time of 11:56.10, while
Hamilton County (13:04.00) was third.
Boys
Before they even took the track, Hamil-
ton County boys faced an enormous 28.5
deficit.
However, thanks to several top five fin-
ishes in numerous events, the Trojans
were able to overcome the deficit and win
their first district title in two years and in
the process end Branfordis two-year title
run.
Hamilton County held off Branford
190.0 to 180.50 to win the District 5-1A
title. Host St. Johns Country Day was
third with 87.5, Bell was fourth with 63.0,
Lafayette was fifth with 57.0, Hilliard
was sixth with 38.0 and Trenton was sev-
enth with 16.0 points.
"What a great bunch of kids we have,"
Hamilton County coach Ron Hall said. "I
have never spotted someone 30 points and
come back and win. Hopefully this title


will encourage more kids to come out for
track next season."
Two days earlier in Branford, St. Johns
and Branford were the lone representa-
tives to compete in the pole vault compe-
tition. Branford swept the first three
places behind Aubrey Sapp (7-06), Laz
Hernandez (7-00) and Billy Peck (6-06)
and Mason Tyler (6-00) tied for fourth to
grab an early 28.5 lead heading into the
rest of the meet completed Thursday at St.
Johns.
Anthony Ingram (21-01) and Antonio
Turner (20-10) went first and second in
the long jump ahead of Branford's John
Perry (20-09) and also got a seventh place
finish from Alfonso Willis (19-01), to cut
the lead quickly picking up 20 points in
the first event. Lafayette's Austin Ander-
son (19-05) finished fifth in the event
putting the Hornets on the board.
Hamilton surged ahead in the second
event as the Trojans took first, fourth,
sixth and seventh in the triple jump to
gain an additional 20 points. Turner (43-
03) won the event ahead of Perry (42-04),
while Simmons (40-11), William Hill (40-
02) and Willis (38-06) went fourth, sixth
and seventh.
Ingram (6-04) and Gerald Bristol (6-02)
finished second and third in the high jump
just ahead of Branford's William Clemons
(5-06).

Ballot Summary:
The Florida Constitution currently limits
the maximum number of students
assigned to each teacher in public school
classrooms in the following grade
groupings: for prekindergarten through
grade 3, 18 students; for grades 4
through 8, 22 students; and for grades 9
through 12, 25 students. Under this
amendment, the current limits on the

This amendment also adopts new limits
on the maximum number of students
assigned to each teacher in an individual
classroom as follows: for prekindergarten

amendment specifies that class size
limits do not apply to virtual classes,
requires the Legislature to provide
sufficient funds to maintain the average
number of students required by this
amendment, and schedules these
revisions to take effect upon approval by
the electors of this state and to operate
retroactively to the beginning of the
2010-2011 school year.

es 03 minutes 10 Blake McLain busted through a hole for a
division line, a
et to the Point of 10-yard gain to get them inside the 30 yard
line. Quarterback Andrew Neswiacheny
s more or less. scrambled 9 yards to the 11. Two plays later
on October 12, Erik Paubtan took a toss sweep from
he highest bidder Neswiacheny giving the Cardinals a 7-0 lead
house located at
K Jr. Ave., in with 3:21 left in the first.
sectakn 45lor3, Branford had some success on its next dri-
East door of the ye as Kyle Certain (48 yards on 17 carries)
at 11:00 a.m., on
ran for 9 yards in three plays, before a high
an interest in the snap over Certain's head sailed 15 yards be-
if any other than hind the line of scrimmage, prompting a rare
above described
of the lus pendens third down punt to start the second quarter.

go wrong for the Bucs on offense via

earing or voce nated with a Neswiacheny 44-yard touch-

sideline increasing the score to 14-0 with
CBarryA. Baker 1:59 left in the half.
Clerk of the Court
Another high snap over Certain's head
BY: Sharon Hale
As Deputy Clerk gave the Cardinals the ball at the 27 yard line
with under a minute left till half.


Neswiacheny (8 of 13 for 142 yards) con-
nected with Jerame Harris for a 11-yard gain
to the 16 yard line. A pass spiked into the
ground with 1.1 seconds left allowed Neloms
to convert a 33-yard field goal, despite David
Bass partially blocking it, giving the Cardi-
nals a 17-0 halftime lead.
Branford regrouped at the half and look re-
focused in the third quarter as the Bucs put
together their best drive of the night.
For a change of pace, Branford coach Bill
Wiles inserted Kendrick Prevatt in at quarter-
back to run the single-wing offense.
Prevatt picked up 16 yards in the first three
plays of the drive. Alternating Prevatt and
Certain, the Bucs began to move the ball as
Certain accumulated 32 yards on the drive to
put them inside the ten.
However, another bad snap pushed them
back to the 15 yard line and a delay of game
penalty made it fourth and long. Faced with
fourth and 17, Certain rushed outside the
pocket and gained 9 yards before being
pushed out of bounds by Harris, surrendering
the ball over to Snyder.
A score there would have cut the lead to
17-7 and given the Bucs some much needed
momentum in the third quarter. Instead the
momentum swung the Cardinals' way, who
were able to keep the Bucs offense in check
and off the field.
"I need to figure out what's going on of-


fensively," Wiles said. "If I knew I would
have fixed it already. It's on me on those bad
snaps, the kids executed but sometimes we
weren't on the same page. One of those
snaps, one of our guys thought it was a dif-
ferent play and took off running.
"In the second half, we would make a pos-
itive play and then a bad one, Wiles said. "If
we score on that first drive, we're back in
it."
Wiles talked about the decision to not kick
the field goal and go for it on fourth down.
"We thought a field goal does us no good
there," Wiles said. "We have to come up with
better ways to move the ball consistently."
Wiles was pleased with his how well his
defense played, especially in the second half
shutting the Cardinals out.
"I thought we played very hard and well,
especially defensively," Wiles said. "Big
plays killed us though, like that toss play,
slant play, if we make the tackle on third and
long play they punt."
"The kids are resilient, though. We played
a lot better than last week, but with our of-
fense you have to be as close as perfect as
you can. We are what we are, we don't have
a lot of game breaking speed. We just have
to finish the deal."
Branford will try to rebound as they travel
to Tallahassee Friday to play host Maclay at
7 p.m.

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.

ST. AUGUSTINE -
Nearly four-and-a-half
centuries ago a tiny band
of citizen-soldiers stood
on a rainy shoreline in
what is now northeast
Florida. They rallied to-
gether to defend their
homes from attacks in the
fledgling Spanish settle-
ment of St. Augustine.
Although they probably
didn't realize it that day in
1565, they were laying


down the roots of what
would become Florida's
militia and National Guard
traditions.
On Sept. 16, the Florida
National Guard and the
Florida Department of
Military Affairs celebrated
the 445th anniversary of
an event some historians
recognize as the first
known muster of citizen-
soldiers - in what would
later evolve into - the con-
tinental United States.
More than 100 Soldiers,
Airmen and civilians gath-
ered at the historic St.
Francis Barracks in down-


town St. Augustine to rec-
ognize the 445th anniver-
sary and learn from histor-
ical re-enactors about the
weapons and clothing used
by those first militia sol-
diers. The seven re-enac-
tors from the Florida Liv-
ing History educational
group not only dressed the
part of early-Florida mili-
tiamen, but showed off a
small arsenal of replica
16th century weapons in-
cluding crossbows,
swords, halberds and
primitive firearms.
"This is the first record-
ed militia muster in what

is now the (continental)
United States - Sept. 16,
1565," explained Florida
Living History president
Mark Schmitt, who was
dressed in a typical cos-
tume of an early Spanish
settler. "They were tasked
with defending the settle-
ment here in St. Augustine,
and defending the people
and property. So that was
the start of the first mili-
tia."
Adjutant General of
Florida Maj. Gen. Emmett
Titshaw, whose own com-
mand philosophy titled
"Linking Our Heritage to
Our Horizons" reflects the
importance of history in
the National Guard, ad-
dressed the celebrants and
urged them to be "true to
our history and our her-
itage."
"It is extremely impor-
tant to know where we
came from, and who we
are," the adjutant general
said. "Today we have an
opportunity to celebrate
445 years of our rich histo-
ry...Let me just simply say
'Happy Birthday to us.'"
He noted that this event
was the beginning of a
five-year program to edu-
cate people about Florida
National Guard history,
culminating in 2015 with
the 450th anniversary of
the founding of St. Augus-
tine.
According to the Florida
National Guard State His-
torian's Office, the "first
muster" took place on
Sept. 16, 1565 when Pedro
Menendez de Aviles gath-
ered around him the sol-
diers of his small Spanish
army, as well as the civil-
ian settlers that had ac-
companied him to the new-
ly established presidio
town of St. Augustine. He
was about to march north
to the French settlement of
Fort Caroline near the
mouth of the St. Johns
River, with the purpose of
driving out the "usurpers
of Spanish land."

Continued From Page 2

Because his plan called
for the use of the majority
of his regular soldiers,
Menendez drew upon
Spanish laws governing
the militia, or milicia, in
an imperial province. As
both the civil governor
and commander-in-chief
of the military establish-
ment he had the authority
to call all free male set-


tlers in the presidio
province to active service.
That first muster in St.
Augustine consisted of ap-
proximately 50 men.
The exact location of
that first muster is un-
known, but local histori-
ans and archeologists be-
lieve it lies a few miles
north of the present site of
the Florida National
Guard headquarters.
In the earliest tradition


of the citizen-soldier, the
musters of the late 1500s
and early 1600s were not
much more than simple
gatherings of able-bodied
men in the town square. It
wasn't until 1671 that vol-
unteer militia units were
organized in St. Augus-
tine.
Florida National Guard
Historian Greg Moore not-
ed that while the English
militia tradition in the


Massachusetts Bay Colony
is credited with giving the
modern National Guard its
earliest organized regi-
ments, it is a fact of histo-
ry that the Spanish first
brought the European tra-
dition - men available for
short terms of military ser-
vice in time of war or do-
mestic turmoil - to the
New World ... first in
Cuba and Puerto Rico,
then to the continent at St.


Augustine.
"Today we can take
great pride in tracing our
roots to the men who mus-
tered under Pedro Menen-
dez de Aviles in St. Au-
gustine on Sept. 16,
1565," Moore said.
The event also coincid-
ed with the beginning of
Hispanic Heritage Month
in Florida, which Gov.
Charlie Crist called in a
statement: "...a special


time to recognize the con-
tributions of Hispanic-
Americans and their im-
pact on our
state's past, present and
future."
The governor noted that
Hispanic culture and his-
tory have "enriched our
communities, economy
and way of life" since the
founding of Florida by
Spanish explorers in the
mid-16th century.

With respect to cancer, survival
almost always depends on detection.
In general, the earlier cancer is
detected, the more likely a person is
to survive.
Such is the case with breast cancer.
When breast cancer is detected in its
earliest stage (stage 0), the rate of
recovery is 100 percent. However,
when breast cancer is not detected
until its later stages, the survival rate
is less than 20 percent.
Such a reality underlies the
importance of early detection. While
an abnormality in the breast often
shows up on a mammogram, women
can also look and feel for additional
symptoms as well. According to the
American Cancer Society, the
following unusual changes in the
breast could be indicative of breast
cancer, and women who notice any
of these symptoms should report
them to their physician immediately

Dear Classified Guys,
Twenty-six resumes, twenty-six cover
letters and zero interviews. I faxed
them, mailed them, and delivered them
in person. I have applied to at least
one per day. I've called to confirm
when they said not to. I've emailed to
ask for an interview after the polite two
weeks. I comb the newspaper every
morning and the jobs I'm applying for
are disappearing. Yet I'm still unem-
ployed. It's getting harder to get out
of my pajamas in the morning. Why
bother? It's just my silent telephone -
and me. And yes, I have checked. The
ringer is turned on. Please give me the
secrets that will get me through this.
Cash: Good first step. The ringer is
turned on. But is the telephone plugged
in the wall? You may just want to check
for a dial tone too!
Carry: The last thing you need to do
right now is get depressed. Otherwise, it
will be really hard to get excited when
you actually do go for a job interview.
Cash: So here are a couple of things
you should do. First, maintain your rou-
tine. That means get up in the morning
and get dressed. Staying in your pajamas
all day only deteriorates your attitude.
Before you know it, you'll be mowing the
lawn in your bathrobe and slippers.


TEll







Duane "Cash'
& Todd "



Carry: Second, you need to do
things that keep your spirits up. It's not
only important for your overall happi-
ness, but if you're depressed it's going
to show in your interviews.
Cash: Make sure you exercise, go
out with friends and most importantly
surround yourself with positive people.
You can join an unemployed support
group to find people in your same situ-
ation. It's important that you enjoy
your time off and get away from the
job-hunting periodically. That way you
return to it with a fresh attitude.
Carry: Now in terms of your job
search, it sounds like you're doing all the
right things. We would suggest having a

professional review your cover letter
and resume. It is possible that there are
some weak spots that are inhibiting you
from landing an interview.
Cash: It could also be possible that
you are targeting the wrong employers
or applying for jobs outside your quali-
fications. A professional recruiter, for
example, may be able to help you.
Carry: And if you need something to
do while you're unemployed, try temp
work. This often leads to permanent
positions. You could also volunteer or
join some clubs.
Cash: And keep positive, before you
know it you'll be asking for vacation
from your newjob!


Increased Marketability
Think you're out of touch with the
job market? Then acquire a new skill
by taking a class or professional work-
shop. Ongoing educational courses,
workshops or advanced certifications
not only improve your job prospects,
but can also boost your salary.
According to the Robert Half and
Accountemps Salary Guide, these types
of skill enhancements can increase your
salary range by as much as 15%. It
could be the edge you need to land the
new job.
No Job?
If you are out of work, don't get
depressed. Instead, take initiative.
Consider joining a local support group
to get new ideas, job leads and emo-
tional support. You can even try online
sites for ideas and feedback on resume
or interviewing techniques. Although
looking for a new job can be daunting,
having emotional support during your
unemployment can help boost your atti-
tude and keep you positive. And along
the way, who knows, you may end up
boosting someone else's spirits as well.

Guard House
After thirty-five years on the same
job, my husband had enough of
working full time. He retired early
and took a part-time job as a night
watchman so he could relax more.
One morning he came home and
told me that he was fired from his
new job after only a few weeks.
"What happened?" I asked him. He
explained that he had fallen asleep
while at his desk and someone had
broken into the building.
Working so late at night, I could
understand how he could doze off.
"But you're such a light sleeper," I
said. "I'm surprised you didn't wake
up from the sounds."
"I didn't get fired for falling
asleep," he confessed. "I was fired
for having my earplugs in!"

Jill Cataldo saves hundreds on groceries by making the most

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


Is There a Stigma to Using Coupons?


By
Jill Cataldo


Last week, we took a look at the demographics of a
typical coupon user. Did you know that the heaviest
users of coupons make more than $70,000 per year?
According to studies by Nielsen Co., those who use
coupons the least earn less than $20,000 per year.
Why don't lower-income people use coupons? Is
there a stigma to using coupons that prevents some
people from using them?
Actually, there is. There's a widespread belief
among the non-coupon set that "only poor people
use coupons." Of course, according to Nielsen
studies, the opposite is true. Some people, though,
are genuinely afraid of appearing "poor" in the
checkout lane. They don't want someone to think
they must be enduring financial hardship.
In Super-Couponing workshops, I often hear stories
from readers who say they have been "shamed" in

the checkout lane of a grocery store. One woman
was watching the cashier scan her large pile of
coupons and the couple standing behind her turned
to each other and said, "Remember when we had to
use coupons a few years ago?" As if having to use
coupons is somehow embarrassing! Another
shopper, a father with a baby, stood in the lane
handing coupons to the cashier and heard a woman
behind him comment, "I know how much you must
be struggling, having to use all those coupons." She
handed him a $20 bill and patted him on the
shoulder!
Fortunately, both shoppers took the patronizing
comments in stride - and made sure to point out that
they were choosing to use coupons, not forced to.
But stories like these suggest that some people
perceive coupon shoppers as needy. And the idea
that someone, anyone, may assume you're poor if
you use coupons is enough to deter some people
from even considering picking up a pair of scissors.
Now, that's the real shame!
Cultural attitudes may play a part, too. After
teaching a coupon workshop in Spanish to a
Spanish-speaking audience, I learned from the
people in the class that there are strong,
preconceived notions about coupons within some
Hispanic communities. One twenty-something
college student told me that her mother equated
coupon use to food stamps: "Mama was so mad that
I was going to a coupon class!" Manufacturers are
working to break down some of these notions and
attract Spanish-speaking audiences. SmartSource
has issued its newspaper coupon insert in both

Spanish and English and General Mills publishes a
free, quarterly Spanish magazine called "Que Rica
Vida" filled with recipes and coupons.
Lack of Internet access is another barrier to
couponing. While anyone can clip coupons, the
heaviest users turn to the Internet to maximize
savings. They utilize printable coupons and
electronic coupons that can be loaded online to
shoppers' cards. They rely on grocery list "match-
up" websites that offer the easy ways to plan a
shopping trip and craft a grocery list reflecting the
best deals of the week and which coupons to use to
get the lowest prices. If you're looking for more
information on any of these tools, visit
www.supercouponing.com and click "Getting
Started" for links to many popular printable coupon,
electronic coupon and match-up sites.
The coupon enthusiasts I know are savvy shoppers
who know the very best prices for the products they
buy. They're experts at spotting a deal and they're
not put off by any so-called "stigma" about using
coupons. And, they realize that using coupons is a
smart, even fun way to keep more of the money
they earn in their wallets.

Other Voices to perform

at 'Free Fridays' Sept. 24


GAINESVILLE - Other Voices brings
a fun mix of upbeat songs to the "Free
Friday" concert series on Friday, Sept.
24. The band last played the Bo Diddley
Community Plaza for the most recent
New Year's Eve celebration and also par-
ticipated in the 40th anniversary of
Woodstock tribute concert last summer.
That concert, headlined by The Relics,
set a new "Free Fridays" attendance
record by drawing more than 3,000 peo-
ple.
The four musicians who make up the
band are Michelle Ott (percussion and


guitar), Dan Tampas (voice and guitar),
Fagan Arouh (voice and guitar) and Alan
Hill (bass and occasional voice). With a
hallmark of intricate vocal harmonies and
tight arrangements, they perform acoustic
originals, select standards and obscure
classics in the realm of pop, folk, blues
and jazz. They have described their mu-
sic as folk and roll.
When Hill and Tampas first played to-
gether nearly 35 years ago, Arouh
was cutting his musical teeth in
Nashville. Ott and Hill joined forces in
another group around 1980. All of this


experience and talent came together in
2001 to form Other Voices. Throughout
their careers, Tampas and Arouh have
written hundreds of songs in all styles,
sentiments, shapes and sizes. Recently,
the group's repertoire has been enhanced
by the addition of original tunes from
Ott.
Other Voices released its "Sampler" al-
bum of 10 original songs in May 2002
and a live recording of 14 more original
songs was released in November 2004.
They released "The Other Side of Other
Voices" in December 2006 where they


added drums, horns, keyboards
and strings to the mix. The group record-
ed, produced and played all of the instru-
ments on these recordings.
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
corner 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-

FSU professor's napkin sketch




earns kudos in national contest &


TALLAHASSEE - On a small cocktail napkin strate-
gically stained with coffee, an award-winning architect
who teaches in The Florida State University interior de-
sign program produced a pen-and-ink drawing of a sim-
ple country church framed by a sepia-tinted sky.
For his artistic skill and resourcefulness, FSU Assistant
Professor Jim Dawkins has earned an Entry of Merit nod
in the 2010 Cocktail Napkin Sketch Contest, sponsored
by the venerable industry magazine Architectural Record.
The first-ever national competition of its kind was
open to practicing U.S. architects and architecture stu-
dents and "drew" a total of 1,322 pen-and-ink entries on
the requisite 5" by 5" paper napkins. Only 16 entries
earned accolades from Architectural Record's jury of edi-
tors.
"While this competition may seem a bit bizarre -
cocktail napkins? - it is based on the architecture and
design habit of talking business over lunch or drinks and
brainstorming ideas on napkins," said Eric Wiedegreen,
chairman of the interior design program in the FSU Col-
lege of Visual Arts, Theatre and Dance. "The size restric-
tion and paper quality would only fuel efforts for a good
designer and sketcher. This was right up Jim Dawkins'
alley. He happens to be an amazing sketcher and render-
er. Given his 20 years of professional experience as a li-
censed architect, his teaching approach in our drawing


classes is one of leading by example. And from a
student's viewpoint, if your professor can draw that
well on a napkin, think of what he could do on a
whole piece of paper."
Dawkins notes with a smile that the Entry of Mer-
it designation from Architectural Record represents
his very first honor for a building rendered on a cof-
fee-stained cocktail napkin. He will add the quirky
but prestigious honor to his formidable collection of
top awards in architectural design, bestowed by the
American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and other
organizations.
Meanwhile, Dawkins is busy sketching the buildings
that grace the Florida State University campus. Although
the project isn't yet complete, already it has attracted at-
tention in faraway places.
"I will be exhibiting an ongoing series of hand sketch-
es of FSU campus buildings this month at Montana State
University," he said. "I anticipate documenting the ma-
jority of the university's buildings via hand sketching in
the next few years."
A faculty member at Florida State since 2009,
Dawkins teaches hand-drawing graphic techniques and a
studio course in interior design.
He received both his Bachelor of Arts in Design de-
gree and Master of Architecture degree from Clemson

Gold is precious in more ways than one


By E. Kirsten Peters
CNHI News Service

With the price of gold well over $1,000 per troy
ounce, people have asked me if they should sell Great
Aunt Edna's rings and bracelets.
Is the price of gold going to go up more based on fears
of economic troubles? Will governments around the
world take actions that change the price, one way or an-
other?
And what value should we put on loyalty to Great
Aunt Edna's memory?
A geologist cannot usefully advise you about econom-
ic policy or about balancing Edna's memory with paying
the rent. But the high price of gold has led me to some
rumination about the world's first, extraordinarily pre-
cious metal.
Not all that glitters is gold, to be sure, but when I once
had the chance to personally heft a gold bar (no easy feat
for a lightweight), I surely admitted that gold has a
strong allure.
I was visiting a geologist at Round Mountain, Nevada,
where gold comes out of an open-pit mine and is
processed on-site.
The final step of the work creates gold bars, called
"dore." That term means they have not yet been highly
purified, so they can have some silver and other metals
in them. But they're mostly gold.
It's tough to think clearly about gold when you're in
the presence of a lot of it, like it's tough to be completely
unemotional in the presence of the Hope Diamond.
But here, in the safety of print and away from stacks
of gold bars, let me lay out a bit of what I know about
gold.
People likely learned to mine gold long ago where it
occurred in the richest stream and beach deposits.


GAINESVILLE - Ants are not out of their
weight class when defending trees from the
appetite of nature's heavyweight, the African
elephant, a new University of Florida study
finds.
Columns of angered ants will crawl up into
elephant trunks to repel the ravenous beasts
from devouring tree cover throughout drought-
plagued East African savannas, playing a po-
tentially important role in regulating carbon
sequestration in these ecosystems, said Todd
Palmer, a UF biology professor and co-author
of a paper being published this week in the
journal Current Biology.
"It really is a David and Goliath story,
where these little ants are up against these
huge herbivores, protecting trees and having a
major impact on the ecosystems in which they
live," Palmer said. "Swarming groups of ants
that weigh about 5 milligrams each can and do
protect trees from animals that are about a bil-
lion times more massive."
The mixture of trees and grasses that make
up savanna ecosystems are traditionally
thought to be regulated by rainfall, soil nutri-
ents, plant-eating herbivores and fire, he said.
"Our results suggest that plant defense
should be added to the list," he said. "These
ants play a central role in preventing animals
that want to eat trees from doing extensive
damage to those trees."
While conducting research in the central
highlands of Kenya, where hungry elephants
have destroyed much of the tree cover, Palmer
said he and his colleague and former UF post-
doctoral student, Jacob Goheen, now a Univer-
sity of Wyoming zoology, physiology and
botany professor, noticed that elephants rarely
ate a widespread tree species known as Acacia
drepanolobium where guardian ants aggres-
sively swarm anything that touches the trees.
But they would feed on other trees that did not
harbor these ants.
The researchers decided to test whether
these tiny ants were repelling the world's
largest land mammal by serving as bodyguards
for the tree in exchange for shelter and the
food it supplied in the form of a sugary nectar
solution. So they offered elephants at a
wildlife orphanage a choice between these
"ant plant" trees, with and without ants on the
branches, and their favorite species of tree, the
Acacia mellifera, to which the researchers
added ants to some of its otherwise antless
branches.
"We found the elephants like to eat the "ant
plant" trees just as much as they like to eat


If gold grade is high enough, you can literally look
down at your feet as you walk along a sandy beach
and pick out small nuggets and grains of gold.
When gold grade drops below that, individ-
ual prospectors can either pan for gold or
send their sandy diggings down sluices to
process it. Both approaches separate dense
gold particles from the lighter sand around it.
But gold is found in quite different geologic
settings, too.
It's often in veins of quartz in other rocks. (In
the ancient world, Mother Nature was thought
to be in some sense alive, so it wasn't surpris-
ing the Earth would have "veins," just as you
have veins in your arms. Odd from a modern per-
spective, but true and preserved in our lan-
guage through the millennia.)
Geological veins are made by fluids, cir-
culating in the Earth and depositing minerals
that get left behind. I spent several years in
graduate school studying how much gold will dissolve in
fluids in the Earth. (Also odd but true, wasting my youth
in such a way.)
One impressive thing about gold in your daily life is
that it doesn't dissolve at all.
The ring on your finger won't dissolve if you throw it
in the boiling pot of pasta water. The gold on your
crowned tooth doesn't dissolve despite years (or decades
for some of us) of being immersed in spit, hot coffee and
all the rest.
So the question for my studies as a student, essentially,
was what conditions and chemicals in the Earth made it
possible for gold to dissolve into fluids and move, then
drop out of solution and into the veins from which we
mine it today?
The answer had to do with sulfur and oxygen and


their favorite tree species, and that when either
tree species had ants on them, the elephants
avoided those trees like a kid avoids broccoli,"
he Palmer said.
Also, the researchers removed ants from
"ant trees" out in the field to see if elephants
would attack them undefended, and a year lat-
er found much more damage than on trees
with ants. Satellite images between 2003 and
2008 confirmed the ants were having a wide-
spread, long-term effect throughout the savan-
na, he said.
The ants did not seem to annoy tree-feeding
giraffes, who used their long tongues to swipe
them away from their short snouts, in marked
contrast to the long nose or trunk on an ele-
phant, Palmer said. The inside of an elephant's
trunk is tender and highly sensitive to thou-
sands of biting ants swarming up into it, he
said.
"An elephant's trunk is a truly remarkable
organ, but also appears to be their Achille's
heel when it comes to squaring off with an an-
gry ant colony," he said.
Because it appears that smell alerts ele-
phants to avoid trees that are occupied by ants,
it raises the question of whether ant odors
might be applied to crops to deter elephants
from feeding on them, just as DEET helps re-
pel mosquitoes from people, he said.
"A big issue in east Africa is elephants dam-
aging crops, which is one reason elephants
have been harassed and sometimes killed," he
said. "There's been a lot of interest in the con-
servation world about how to minimize the
conflict elephants have with humans and par-
ticularly how to keep elephants from raiding
agricultural fields."
One predicted outcome of global warming is
more frequent and intense droughts, which
will force desperate elephants to eat every-
thing they can to survive, Palmer said "With
more droughts, the extent to which elephants
destroy and remove trees may increase and po-
tentially shift the ecosystems back to grass-
lands," he said.
Ants' role in saving trees is critical with the
interest in slowing the accumulation of green-
house gasses since trees absorb carbon dioxide
from the atmosphere, Palmer said.
"These 'ant plants' don't cover just a few
hundred acres but are distributed throughout
east Africa from southern Sudan all the way
over to eastern Zaire and down through the
horn of Africa and Tanzania," he said. "So
they potentially play a big role in terms of reg-
ulating carbon dynamics in these ecosystems."


some
difficult points of
,lcinistry, with lots of calcu-
I. iit lin thrown in to add to the labor.
But the main issue was that the condi-
tions in which gold dissolves are rare -just as
you know from your day-to-day living.
And that brings us back to Great Aunt Edna's rings.
There's no harm in taking them in and asking for a
bid. But before you take the cash and walk away from
the family gold, I'd recommend leaving the buy-back
place and going home. One night's sleep could help you
reach a decision you won't regret, one way or another.
There was, after all, only one Great Aunt Edna.

Also, painting your fence is better than just ignoring it and having to replace it every few years. Dont forget to paint or stain the ends of the boards as well. This is open end grain that will be exposed directly to the elements, and if left unpainted or unstained, moisture will very easily work its way down into the boards, rotting them as it goes. Its easier on you (and better for the paint) if you dont work in the direct sun or during the heat of the day. Direct sun will make the paint dry too fast and it wont be able to provide proper protection. For more information contact the paint professionals at Live Oak Paint & Flooring.

Pharmacy & Your Health 617197-F Treatment Options for Bronchiectasis Bronchiectasis involves a continuous productive cough due to an infection. There is blockage of the airways as well as inflammation of the airways. Wheezing, difficulty breathing, and chest pain are symptoms of this condition. Bronchiectasis occurs more commonly in women, and the risk of being affected by the condition increases with age. Cystic fibrosis is a medical condition that can lead to bronchiectasis. Cigarette smoking may also increase the risk of this condition. Antibiotics may be prescribed for treatment of coughing episodes and to reduce the risk for another infection. Fluoroquinolone antibiotics, such as ciprofloxacin , may be used. Tobramycin ( Tobi ) is an inhaled antibiotic that may also prescribed. These medications may also be taken at the same time. Inhaled glucocorticoids, such as fluticasone ( Flovent ), may be used to reduce inflammation of the airways. For those also affected by cystic fibrosis, dornase alfa ( Pulmozyme ) may be prescribed. It works to decrease the thickness of mucus, which allows air to flow better through the lungs. Persons with the condition also may be affected by gastroesophageal reflux. A proton pump inhibitor, such as omeprazole ( Prilosec ), or an H2 blocker, such as cimetidine ( Tagamet ), may be used for suppression of stomach acid. by Joy Lamb, PharmD Drive-up window Model Name and Comfort Level Queen set$000 REG.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2010 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 6A By Jim Holmes Many a convicted murder escaped dying in Florida's electric chair because of legal appeals, but it appears only one could say he actually sat in Old Sparky and lived to tell the tale. Jim Williams, an African-American man from the Palatka area, had been convicted and sentenced to death for murdering his wife. Historian Vivien Miller tells us his execution at the Florida State Prison was scheduled for a spring day in 1926. It is here that his story takes a bizarre twist. Williams was escorted to Old Sparky and strapped in É a black hood placed over his head. Prison Warden J.S. Blitch announced he had performed his duty. As prescribed by Florida law, he had delivered a convicted murderer to the electric chair. Now, it was the legal responsibility of the sheriff -in this case Putnam County's R. J. Hancock -to carry out the actual execution. At this point, the details are hazy. We know there were two officials from the Putnam County Sheriff's Department at the execution. Whether Sheriff Hancock was one of them or whether they were two of his deputies is unclear. What is clear, however, is that neither man would throw the switch, each saying it was the legal responsibility of the other. News reports of the day say the argument went on for at least 10 minutes. Meanwhile, Williams sat in the electric chair nearby waiting for someone to do the deed. The warden finally stepped in, ordered the execution postponed and had Williams -who must have nearly died of fright, if not electricity -escorted back to his cell. Jacksonville columnist Bill Foley would later write that the event so traumatized Williams that he would not sit in any chair for weeks after the incident. At a loss over what to do next, the warden kicked the issue upstairs to Florida Governor John W. Martin. When he heard the tale -and the chilling ordeal Williams had already experienced -the state's chief executive apparently could not bring himself to schedule a second execution date. And so the convicted man's death sentence was commuted to "life." But Jim Williams unusual story doesn't end there. In the coming years, he would become known as a model prisoner ... and eventually a hero! News stories of the day say that Williams was being transported in a prison truck when he spotted a woman (some reports say there was also a child involved) being charged by an angry bull in a nearby pasture. Without hesitation or regard for his personal safety, he jumped from the vehicle and executed a daring rescue. He then returned to the prison truck and once again took his seat. His act of valor was such that in 1934 --nine years after he was to die -Jim Williams was pardoned and set free. By the way, there apparently was a valid jurisdictional issue in those days about who could legally carry out Florida's executions. It was significant enough that the Florida Legislature would eventually step in. Beginning in 1941, an official "state executioner" was given the responsibility. For each execution the individual performs, the parttime employee -who remains anonymous -is today paid the grand total of $150.

It was a story about Carl Greene, the embattled director of the Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA). He was put on paid leave while the board investigates charges that he settled four sexual harassment claims against him without notifying the PHA, doled out work to politically connected law firms and pressured employees to donate to his favorite nonprofit. Greene is also being investigated by the U.S. Attorney General Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and HUD's Office of Inspector General. They have yet to bring criminal charges against him. People always act surprised by revelations of political corruption but the Philadelphia Housing Authority corruption is highly probably in nonprofit entities such as government. Because of ignorance and demagoguery, being profit-motivated has become suspicious and possibly a dirty word. Nonprofit is seen as more righteous. Very often, people pompously stand before us and declare, "We're a nonprofit organization." They expect for us to believe that since they're not in it for money, they are somehow above self-interest and have the public interest as their motivation. There's little much further from the truth. People are always self-interested. It's just when they manage a nonprofit organization such as the Philadelphia Housing Authority, government entities in general, universities and charitable organizations, they face a different set of constraints on their behavior. The fundamental difference between nonprofit organizations and their profit-making counterparts is that nonprofits tend to take a greater portion of their compensation from easier working conditions, more time off, favors and under-the-table payments. Profit-making organizations take a greater portion of their compensation in cash, except those that are highly regulated. In the profit-making world, there is much greater monitoring of the behavior of people who act for the organization. Profit-making organizations have a financial bottom line they must meet, or sooner or later, heads will roll. Not so with nonprofits, who have no bottom line to meet. On top of that, incompetence for nonprofits means bigger budgets, higher pay and less oversight. That description aptly fits one the nation's largest nonprofit organizations -the public education establishment. Profit is vital to human well-being. Profit is the payment to entrepreneurs just as wages are payments to labor, interest to capital and rent to land. In order to earn profits in free markets, entrepreneurs must identify and satisfy human wants and do so in a way that economizes on society's scarce resources. Here's a little test. Which entities produce greater customer satisfaction: for-profit enterprises such as supermarkets, computer makers and clothing stores, or nonprofit entities such as public schools, post offices and motor vehicle departments? I'm guessing you'll answer the former. Their survival depends on pleasing customers. Nonprofits, such as public schools, post offices and motor vehicle departments, survival depends mostly on pleasing politicians. When a firm fails to please its customers and thereby fails to earn a profit, it goes bankrupt, making those resources available to another who might do better. That's unless government steps in to bail it out. Bailouts permit a business to continue doing a poor job of pleasing customers and husbanding resources. Government-owned nonprofit entities are immune to the ruthless market discipline of being forced to please customers. The same can be said of businesses that receive government handouts. It's this ruthlessness of market discipline that forces firms to please customers, economize on resources and thereby earn profits or go out of business and goes a long way toward explaining hostility toward free market capitalism. And much of the hostility toward free market capitalism is held by businessmen. Adam Smith recognized this in his "Wealth of Nations" when he said, "People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices." Their co-conspirator is always government. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University. To find out more about Walter E.

I was reading the September 10th edition of the Suwannee Democrat and was amazed at all thecomments against the lady whose children has to be subjected to what ever radio station the bus driver selects. Personally, I support the lady. I believe that there shouldn't be music or any other entertainment the exception being personal entertainment devices allowed by parents on the buses. It's a distraction to the drivers who are in charge of precious lives while the children are on the bus. When I was a child, I had to ride the bus to school. We were one of the first stops made on the route to school and the reverse route going home we were one of the last stops. It was about a 30 to 40 minute bus ride each way. During that time we were expected to sit quietly in our seats for the ride. The bus driver was one to be respected and obeyed. I can remember misbehaving on a few bus rides. My bus driver would escort me into the principal's office if going to school and explain my bad behavior. If it was on the way home he would escort me to the front door and explain to one of my parents my bad behavior.If they weren't home (unusual at the time) then a letter would be written and mailed home. I never did intercept any of those letters, but I digress. My parents freely disciplined me when I misbehaved in school, on the school bus and at home. The point I want to make here is that bus drivers, school teachers andschool administrators are not baby sitters. They should expect that parents be active in their child's development and schooling. Parents are not doing their part. I've raised children and now I have grandchildren. I am proud of my grandchildren as they are well behaved, study hard and earn good grades in school.Occasionally my daughters take the time to thank me for being a parent to them.Parenting includes unconditional love and support and when warranted, discipline.My daughtersare all grown up now. They are wondering how their children's friends are going to make it through life as they don't see the parenting that they received or are giving to their own children. Frankly, I don't know either. Sincerely, Mike Chase Lake City By Wayne Godsmark Substance use disorders are a treatable, yet serious health problems often occur due to a variety of external circumstances, including stress. Addressing this problem and finding a positive outlet for dealing with stress is now more important than ever, given the many causes of stress that exist today. In the spirit of the annual National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month (Recovery Month) campaign,I'm urging allresidents of Suwannee County to take a fewminutes and recognize the negativeimpact this disease has on our community. It also is important for all people to understand that recovery is possible through a variety of treatment resources and recovery support programs. Having worked in the recovery field conducting faithbased support groups for six years, I have firsthand knowledge of the devastation that stress and addiction brings to people and their families. Addiction is a real issue, with an estimated 23.1 million people needing treatment for an alcohol or illicit drug use problem in 2008, according to the 2008 National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Locally, many people face this problem. The good news is that we can help people address their addiction and live a healthy and productive life in recovery. Together, we can do the following: • Encourage our friends, colleagues, or family members who are suffering to enter treatment facilities or seek recovery resources. • Reach out to individuals throughout our communities to prevent stigma against people receiving treatment services on military bases and in adult living centers. • Offer all people in our community strategies to combat and manage stress, such as learning to reduce unnecessary or extra responsibilities, exercising regularly, identifying, removing, or reducing the source of stress, or seeking professional support or assistance. This September, in conjunction with the Recovery Month commemoration, I call on all people in Suwannee County to improve the lives of those suffering from addiction, support individuals in recovery, and recognize the individuals who work in our community to provide recovery services. To maximize this opportunity, I urge local businesses, churches, government agencies, and community organizations to showcase details about local treatment and recovery resources on their Web sites and link to additional information available at http://www.recoverymonth.gov. Wayne Godsmark is lead pastor of Christ Central Ministries,Live Oak. He is also vice-chair of the Suwannee Coalition.September is Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month.See photos, Page 10A.GUEST COMMENTARYWorking together to combat stress, substance use disorders

A representative of the Suwannee County Tax Collector’s office will be at Branford Town Hall the 1st & 3rd Tuesday of each month from 8:30 a.m.–noon and from 1 pm–4:30 p.m. By Ana Smith This is going to be a short article this week; not much to report, actually, but a recap of a couple of worthy causes for you to think about. The first is the plight of the Allen family, and little 5-year-old Dakota who was mauled by a dog at a child's birthday party. If you read about him last week, then you know that the medical bills keep coming in, and the family is in dire need of help. There is a fund set up at the Branford Capital Bank to help the family. If you have ever been in a situation like this, and especially in this hurtful economy, then you know how scary this can be for this young family. Please help. Bring your donations to Capital Bank, and help lift some of this burden, all from an unexpected but devastating event. And don't forget the charitable works of the Lynch family and all their helpers and friends who provide a free meal the last Sunday of each month for homeless men, women and children. The number of people/families they serve each month continues to grow. If you are doing your fall cleaning and have items that could be sold at a flea market to raise money for the food and supplies needed to keep this effort going, please call Roger Burnside at 935-3343 to arrange for the drop-off or pick-off of your donations. And always, money donations are much appreciated. Roger is also very involved in the Christmas "Toys for Kids" that provides toys, winter clothing, and food baskets for Thanksgiving and Christmas for families down here in our end of Suwannee county. It is not too early to be thinking of that need, and to put this particular charity on your list for the coming holiday season. That group served a lot of families last year, many of the members digging into their own pockets to make up dinner and a few toys at the last minute for a couple of families who were hard hit by job loss/income loss right at holiday time. And with the extreme cold we experienced last winter, the need was great, especially for the children who needed heavy winter coats. We all know how quickly children outgrow such things each year. With no income, or increased bills due to the extreme increases in just heating the home, there were many families who could not provide these things for their children. As you plan for your yearly charitable cause, please remember this organization. You will be so richly blessed! I took a little trip last week to visit my grandson and meet his family; what a lot of fun! Not only spending time with a grandson I haven't seen in almost six years, but enjoying the laughter and antics of a 2-year-old granddaughter and 3-year-old grandson who took a lot of delight in my wheelchair. Notes and cards and an occasional phone call just doesn't mean as much as that personal visit, and we hope to visit a lot more often now that they have moved a lot closer to me up to Spring Hill, near WeekiWachee waterpark. Random messages via e-mail are now daily "talks" on Facebook and e-mail. Keep reading ALL the pages of this newspaper for activities coming up all through the coming months. There is something to do just about every weekend, so make plans for family and friends to enjoy together. Also this weekend is the 54th Annual Suwannee River Riding Club's RODEO. It will be held on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 24 and 25, at the rodeo grounds just north of Branford on highway 129, starting at 8 p.m. The parade will be on Saturday, starting at 3 p.m. This event is fun for the entire family, and the price of admittance is very reasonable.

A Gainesville group is planning a major cleanup of the Florida portion of the Suwannee River, from the Georgia line to the Gulf of Mexico. The project will be made up of many small cleanups all along the river during September, October and November. "We are looking for all kinds of groups to join in this first-time effort to remove trash from the entire river," Fritzi S.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2010 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 8ABUSINESS Guest speaker Dr. David Burton, Florida Baptist Convention 621227-F Look for sponsor form inside the North Florida Focus section Wes Haney Chevrolet, CCS team up to spur recycling efforts The planet is threatened by the plastic that is in most printer ink cartridges, say experts.That is one of the amazing things that clients of Comprehensive Community Services learned in a class they recently attended on "Improving Our Environment."The plastics used in printer cartridges are made of an engineering grade polymer that takes from 450 to 1,000 years to decompose. In addition to having a long life, printer cartridges may leak ink, polluting the area groundwater. If you've been throwing your inkjet and toner cartridges in the garbage up to this point, you're not alone.It's estimated that more than 13 cartridges are discarded in the U.S. every second.That's hundreds of millions of cartridges that end up in landfills every year, made with plastics that can take at least 1,000 years to decompose. "Our clients are always looking for ways to help the community, and they talked about what they could do and decided to take action by starting their own STOP, DROP & RECYCLE Program for printer ink cartridges, laser cartridges, cell phones and MP3 players," said Janet Sampson, CCS Development Assistant. Wes Haney Chevrolet has agreed to help with the campaign by allowing CCS to place a convenient recycling drop-off box in their showroom lobby in Live Oak. "For years, we've supported the great work that the staff at CCS does and thought this would be another way we could help their clients" said David Haney, owner of the dealership."We just hope the local community gets behind this program because we'll all benefit in the end." Noted Sampson, "We talked with a number of our local business partners who have also agreed to work with our clients on helping to keep the community clean."Additional sites where area citizens can drop off used printer cartridges, cell phones and MP3 players are Suwannee Valley Electric, Live Oak City Hall, the Suwannee County Tax Collectors office, and CCS's main office at 511 Goldkist Boulevard in Live Oak.In addition, CCS is currently accepting used or out dated ink cartridges, laser cartridges and cell phones at any of the drop-off sites. Area residents and businesses may call Janet Sampson at 386-362-7143 Extension 5 for more details on how they can help. A local auto dealer has joined forces with Comprehensive Community Services to make it easier for local residents to recycle ink cartridges and more.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2010 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 9A Q: What sort of problems can develop with the tongue? A: A relatively common problem is an inflammation called glossitis. The condition is characterized by disappearance of the hair-like projections, call papillae, on the top of the tongue. The tongue will take on a reddish-purple color and can become quite painful. You may also feel a burning sensation and swallowing may be difficult. In another condition called geographic tongue, only patches will lose the papillae and create borders of yellow or white. The patches may heal and the condition may hit another area. This condition is sometimes called migratory glossitis because it appears as though the patches are moving. People who suffer with geographic tongue often have a condition called fissured tongue, meaning the tongue has a deep fissure that runs along the top surface. Fissured tongue is congenital. One of its dangers is that food can collect in the fissure, causing inflammation. The only treatment for fissured tongue is to keep the crevice clean by brushing and using mouthwash. Talk with your dentist about these and other problems that can affect the tongue. Presented as a service to the community by 571101-F ASK DR. MANTOOTH 362-6556 (800) 829-6506 HERBERT C.

Submitted Stuart and Jackson Brown were the first brothers -twins, no less -to ever represent American Legion Post 107 at Boys State in Tallahassee. Fivehundred thirty-five boys from all over the state of Florida met in Tallahassee for a week-long session to learn about state and local government. The Browns visited the State Capitol Building 3 times and saw where the state legislature meets. On one occasion, the Commissioner of Agriculture, Charles Bronson, spoke to the Boys State participants about how to become a politician. Stuart was elected Senator to represent his district. Jackson was elected as a city councilman and as a House Representative for his district. As part of the legislative branch, both Browns participated in debating bills and passing legislation on Florida laws -having four bills go through the House of Representatives, through the Senate and on to Governor Crist’s desk. Both Stuart and Jackson had a lot of fun and met many boys with whom they developed lasting friendships. One such friend is Charlie Brown (no relation), who was elected Governor of Boys State 2010. Stuart and Jackson served on Charlie’s campaign and helped get him elected. Charlie was later elected President of Boys Nation 2010. These three boys are fine examples of the caliber of students in attendance this year. The week passed by too quickly, according to Jackson. “It was a memorable experience that I will carry with me for the rest of my life,” he said.

Or would you like to get involved helping those in the community around you understand the importance of preserving all our wonderful native plants? Come to our "Meet & Greet" to kick off the start of a local chapter in southern Suwannee County on October 12th, at The Gathering Cafe, 26804 State Road 247, Branford, at 6:30 pm.

age between Thomas's legs. When asked what the beverage was, Thomas reportedly said, "Abeer." When asked how many beers he had consumed that night, Thomas replied, "Two," the report shows. Thomas was then asked to step out of his vehicle, at which point Everett reported the odor of alcohol on Thomas's breath and that Thomas had trouble maintaining his balance while standing. Thomas was then asked if he was capable of performing field sobriety exercises. He noted that his ankle had been injured during military service but reportedly said, "I can try to do them." According to Everett, Thomas "would not follow the directions for any of the exercises" and "told different stories of the events of the night up to the time of the stop." Thomas was then arrested on suspicion of DUI and transported to the Madison County jail, where he reportedly refused a breathalyzer test. Thomas was then transported the Suwannee County Jail on charges of DUI and refusing the breathalyzer test. He was later released on bail.

To help offset the increase, city officials lowered the garbage rate on commercial customers. A minimum garbage bill will decrease 9.8 percent from $63.19 to $56.97 a month. The problem stems from an agreement by the city to provide reuse water for Suwannee Correctional Institution. The prison, which can hold 3,293 inmates, had only 1,299 as of Sept. 16, however, so water use -and utility revenues -remain far below projections. No one knows when or if the inmate population at SCI will increase. It didn't rise during the 2009-10 budget cycle, as promised, which led to the current round of rate increases. Farley said at a recent budget workshop that SCI's warden expects to soon be receiving 50 to 75 inmates a week. "They've opened up the annex which will also open up a laundry and a new cafeteria, so (the warden) said the flows will be going up," said Farley. Farley said he was told that by December 2 there should be about 3,000 inmates at the prison, which could eliminate the need for a rate hike altogether. The city was supposed to receive $734,000 from the prison to cover current debt on phase II of the wastewater treatment plant, some $448,000, for the 2009-10 budget cycle. However, as of mid-August, only about $324,000 had been received. Councilman Adam Prins said he didn't like the idea of determining the 2010-11 budget on a "maybe" and said the local residents and commercial customers shouldn't have to suffer for it. "We've already got that money to make up because that was budgeted then," said Prins. "I don't want to see us fall into the same trap this year." If the funds aren't received from the prison, businesses in the city will be hit yet again: the decrease in the garbage rate is only set to be in effect for one year. Local business owner Brent Wainwright, owner of Suwannee Health and Fitness, told the council Monday he's fed up with all the increases, and said his business is at the breaking point. "The consensus, it seems, is to take (the increase) and pass it on. But, we don't have the luxury to increase rates and essentially pass it on," he said. "Why are the local businesses being punished in this situation for the lack of foresight in this situation?" Wainwright said the proposed increase would raise his utility bill by $600 a year, on top of his skyrocketing property taxes, which have led him and his wife to help fund employee payroll out of their own pockets. "I feel like it's such an exorbitant rate," he said. "Do you think we can stay in business here long?" Marion Gross, owner of the Big B night club, agreed. "I need some help," she told the council Monday. "My business is barely surviving as it is." Local real estate agent Ronnie Poole said Tuesday he knows city officials have to do what they must, but "hates to see anything go up. I would certainly not like to see any utility rates go up if they could help it." Finance Director Jan Parkhurst said she, Farley and other staff members will review the budget over the next couple of days to determine one possible alternative. At Monday's meeting it was revealed that Code Enforcement Officer David Caban had been fired hours earlier for insubordination. (See related story,Page 1A.) In response to a move to eliminate the position altogether, Farley suggested that the post remain in the budget, but recommended the council leave only $15,000 of the $47,009.91 budgeted for it. Farley suggested the remainder, $32,0009.91, be used to help offset the 32 percent sewer rate hike.

On each of his three charges, Giannoble must serve three years'probation, concurrently. On a fourth charge of possession of drug paraphernalia, Giannoble received credit for time served. The first two years of his sentence will be served on drug offender probation, and his license will be suspended for two years. In addition, Giannoble forfeited a computer seized during his arrest.

Live Oak man found dead in LC motel roomContinued From Page 1A He was fired at 2 p.m. at City Hall. The move to oust Caban at last Tuesday's council meeting was a cost-cutting measure by Councilman Adam Prins. That move failed in a 3-2 vote with Councilman Bennie Thomas voting with Prins to combine the position of code officer and building inspector. Monday night during a recessed meeting at City Hall, Prins again made the motion to abolish the code enforcement position. "I felt that in light of today's occurrence, I think that we go ahead and abolish that position," said Prins. "I am an advocate of code enforcement ... I just feel like we need to combine that with (the building inspector position)." City Administrator Bob Farley suggested that the position remain in the budget, but recommended the council leave only $15,000 of the $47,009.91 budgeted for the position. Farley suggested the remainder, $32,0009.91, be used to help offset an anticipated 32 percent sewer rate increase on commercial customers. (See related story,Page 1A.) The $15,000 would be used for code enforcement matters generally, say officials. It is not clear if city building inspector Roy Rogers will take over Caban's duties, as Prins had earlier proposed. Farley and Finance Director Jan Parkhurst are scheduled to submit a proposal on how to use the $32,000 to help defray the proposed commercial utility rate increase at a Sept. 28 meeting atCity Hall at 6:30 p.m. Caban was nearly fired in September 2007, when the City Council voted 3-2 to terminate him at least partly in response to citizen complaints that they had been cited for violations on property they did not own. However, then City Attorney David Robertson advised the Council that only Farley could fire Caban. Mayor Sonny Nobles directed Farley not to do so. In January 2008 Caban was suspended for 5 1/2 days after officials learned he had violated city policy regarding possession of alcohol on city property and use of a company vehicle during working hours.Code officer fired after allContinued From Page 1A entire river," said Fritzi S. Olson, Executive Director of Current Problems. The non-profit group is known for removing debris from waterways throughout north and north central Florida with the help of community volunteers. "We will have almost 30 teams led by section lead-Great Suwannee River CleanupContinued From Page 1A ers to help clean the Suwannee," said Olson. "At the kick off event, we will host a barbecue and a few of the organization leaders will address those scheduled to come help." Unprecedented in its inception, the major cleanup is planned for the Florida portion of the Suwannee River, from the Georgia line to the Gulf of Mexico, and will take place during September, October and November. "Though this isn't our first major project, it definitely will be our longest," Olson said. "We generally clean urban creeks, lakes and streams, but this is a much larger undertaking. We've even got a small group of cave divers who have actually volunteered to help." Current Problems will arm volunteers with the necessary cleaning supplies such as trash bags, gloves, debris grabbers, nets and scales. The bulk of work will be performed on Saturdays and Sundays, Olson said. "We don't bother any natural debris such as fallen limbs, but focus on removing cans, bottles, paper and plastic." Officials at the SRWMD expressed their gratitude to Current Problems and its volunteers for taking on such a momentous task. "I think any effort like this that draws attention to our rivers is wonderful," said Edwin McCook, land management specialist. "We would support any group doing a project like this." Bobby Toothaker, Park Manager at the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail, was floored by the organization's willingness to perform a cleanup of the Suwannee. "I think it's great to have a bunch of folks come together for this common goal of cleaning the river," he said. "The way folks have come out of the woodwork to help, I think, is overwhelming." In the end, Olson said she hopes the project will raise awareness and get more people to appreciate the river. Staff Asudden medical emergency caused a single-vehicle crash on I-10 Friday that resulted in the death of a Neoga, Ill. man, the Florida Highway Patrol reported. According to FHP, James L.

It is not clear from FHP reports whether James Phillips died as a result of the medical condition or from injuries sustained in the crash. Car crash leaves locals in the darkBy Carnell Hawthorne Jr. Nearly 1,200 Live Oak residents were left without power early Sunday morning after a vehicle crashed into a power pole on 2nd Street, according to officials at the Live Oak Police Department and Florida Power & Light. The accident happened around 12:35 a.m. Sunday, said Police Chief Buddy Williams, who was working Monday to contact the driver of the abandoned car. Gary Brostowicz, spokesman for FP&L, said locals and businesses in the vicinity of US 129 north and those east and west along Duval Street and US 90 were without power for over two hours. He said, "Ninety seven percent of customer's power were restored within three hours following the incident."

Come to the Village Square in the Professional Offices. By Cody Webb Call me biased, but I can't help but enjoy a game that stars a writer stuck in a nightmare world of horror and action. This is exactly the situation that Alan Wake finds himself in during the events in the game of the same name. That's right, folks, after five years in the making, Remedy has finally delivered Alan Wake. And I'm pleased to say, the wait has been, mostly, worth it! First off, the team at Remedy deserve definite kudos for crafting such a brilliant story. Using a, slightly paraphrased, line from the story: "A good horror story needs victims, near-misses, the hero almost has to die," would be a great way to describe the story. The narrative flows naturally, with proper slow points and tense action moments. It's something that seems to be rare in today's games, and I'm certainly looking forward to another entry in this series. The story stars writer Alan Wake, who, along with his wife Alice, decides to vacation in the small town of Bright Falls to hopefully get over twoyear case of writer's block. However, the night they get there something mysterious happens and Alice winds up missing, Alan himself waking up a week later in his crashed car. Not having any memories of the past week's events, he sets out to discover why he's finding pages of a Alan wakemanuscript he doesn't remember writing with events that are coming true around him and where Alice has gone. This game is gorgeous, simply put. While the character models themselves don't stand out very much, the environments alone are enough to make players stop and stare. And most likely die, because you shouldn't stop while you're being chased. Luckily though, most of the truly panoramic views are shown during the daylight hours, where the only enemy is you staring for too long at the mountains and forests that surround the small town of Bright Falls. Alan Wake also delivers a very atmospheric experience, using the concept of light versus darkness expertly. Light blooms and shines brightly, almost blindingly in some areas, cutting through the darkness and giving players something to run towards. Other times the ambient sounds and surrounding darkness is enough to make players tense, especially when the wind starts picking up and shadows start racing across the ground. You can tell they put a lot of effort into the little touches: Alan's jacket moves and ripples realistically as he runs about, the grass and leaves shake and rustle, and even Alan himself are great examples of this. See, being the writer that he is, Alan can't sprint for miles or action roll like most of the action heroes seen recently. If players make him sprint for too long, his gait becomes staggered and tired, while his dodges are merely him stumbling out of the way. Remedy did a truly amazing job of bringing the world of Bright Falls alive, from all of the extra dialogue you can go out of your way for, to the pitchperfect voice acting. Alan Wake is an amazingly immersive experience, one that I recommend for anyone who loves a good horror story. But if you don't care for story, you'll still love Alan Wake's frenzied action segments. Alan's main foe is a mystical force called the "Dark Presence", which is capable of possessing anyone and anything to try and kill him. From normal townspeople, dubbed the "Taken" in-game, to barrels, to even bigger things like bulldozers, the Prescene stops at nothing to try and kill poor Al. Unfortunately, this is where Alan Wake's one and only stumble takes place: the controls. At first they won't bother you too much, he's very much capable of burning the darkness off of his foes with his flashlight and then filling them with hot lead. Dodging is usually as easy as pressing a button, and timing it perfectly gets you a nifty cinematic slow-mo camera as you avoid the danger. But later on, as more and more of the same enemies pop up, you'll begin to get frustrated with the too-slow controls. Honestly, it becomes easier to run than it is to fight, dodging when necessary. This doesn't seem to be discouraged either, as enemies disappear if you can make it into the light from streetlights, called "Safe Havens". Most fights you can run past, or run away from, which is a very fun experience to those who want to try it out. It's a little amusing to see the writer scrambling away from a horde of possessed dudes with axes. So would I recommend Alan Wake? I definitely would, even if you don't like to read. Collection maniacs will enjoy running around discovering the scattered pages of Alan's manuscript and, for some odd reason, coffee thermoses. Action junkies will enjoy the tense fights with the Taken, and that possessed bulldozer I mentioned earlier. I'll give Alan Wake an A! Cody Webb lives in Live Oak.

Then join the Tangles team Saturday, Oct. 16, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. for their premier Fall Bazaar. Ministry leaders Angie Lott and Vickie Bass, have announced they’ve scheduled their first Fall Bazaar as a fundraising event for Tangles, a Community Outreach for Women. “We are excited to announce a great opportunity for our community to join us at Tangles for this firsttime event. Not only will we be introducing the Tangles Gals’ line of shabby chic furnishings and gifts, Shabby T, but we are looking for vendors who have hand-crafted or quality food items to sell,” said Bass. Added Lott, “If you have handmade items such as jewelry, quilts, handsewn clothing, Christmas or other holiday décor, artwork or any other original, unique creations, we’d love to talk to you about participating.” They are also seeking vendors who sell heritage food items such as homemade cakes and pies, jams, preserves, kettle corn and traditional fall festival food. Vending applications can be obtained by e-mailing vlb55@msn.com. The Pregnancy Care Center is hoping to achieve the same kind of success in 2010 as last year’s Live Oak Walk/Run challenge. Local residents walked, ran or rode bicycles, bringing in over $20,000 for the Center. The three-mile course is the same, the theme is “A Chance for a Lifetime” and enthusiasm is running high at the center. With the support of the community again this year, Pregnancy Care Center can better train new moms and dads, children up to age 2 will be clothed and diapered and pre-borns will be given a chance for a lifetime! Last year Donna Sandage, Pregnancy Care Center Executive Director, introduced the Church Challenge which added a whole new dimension to the Walk/Run. Not only can you enter as an individual, a part of a business team or family group, but your church can also challenge another congregation to compete for a trophy to display for a year. The current trophy holder is First Baptist Church of Live Oak. The Pregnancy Care Center is a non-profit ministry that assists pregnant women. It is volunteer based and is a resource that helps moms that cannot provide adequately for their babies. The Live Oak clients also have access to sonograms at the Lake City center since it became a medical facility in June. This increases the viability of the baby and helps to save lives. The Walk/Run will be held Saturday, Oct. 2 at the Suwannee Coliseum. Registration starts at 8:30 a.m. A route map will be provided for the threemile course. Food will be provided and the local group “Fifth and Baya” will perform.Fall bazaar planned at TanglesPregnancy Care Center Walk/Run set for Oct. 2Tangles is a community outreach open to women of all denominations, races, ages, nationalities and backgrounds. There is never a charge for any of the events or programs at Tangles.

Section BWednesday, September 22, 2010Suwannee Democrat SPORTS SPORTS Suwannee hasn’t had much success lately, not having been to the playoffs since 1999. Photo: Paul Buchanan (SuwanneeSports.com)Against all oddsBy Corey Daviscorey.davis@gaflnews.comAccording to history, before area volleyball teams even started their first practice, they we’re already at a disadvantage. It’s been 11 years since Suwannee last made the state playoffs in 1999, 40 for Hamilton County and eight years since Branford last made it. Lafayette broke through last season finishing second in its district behind state powers Tallahassee Maclay and North Florida Christian (NFC). Branford, Lafayette and Hamilton County’s downfall stems from having to go through state powers in their own district. NFC won eight consecutive district titles from 2002-2008, before Maclay stopped the streak by winning the last two titles. Lafayette knocked out NFC in the district semi-finals last season, stopping the Eagles’ long playoff streak. Lafayette joins Hamilton in District 4-1A with NFC, Maclay and Jefferson County. Maclay hasBy Corey Daviscorey.davis@gaflnews.comJACKSONVILLE-Two weeks ago, Branford put up 42 points in their season opening win over St. Francis, but since then the offense has struggled. Last week the Bucs accumulated seven points in a 45-7 loss to Trenton, Friday night the offensive woes continued. With a bevy of tailbacks, Bishop Snyder (3-0, 3-0) utilized a combination of a ground game mixed in with a potent passing game to control the game and clock in a 17-0 Big Ten Conference win By Corey Daviscorey.davis@gaflnews.comFORT WHITE-Willie Spears’ motto is ‘Get better every day.’ For the second straight week, his football team has regressed. Coming off a 35-0 beat down from Madison County last week, the Bulldogs surrendered a fourtouchdown performance from Alexis Blake as host Fort White dominated visiting Suwannee 5222 at Arrowhead Stadium Friday night. Blake (232 yards on 16 carries) scored on the Indians’ first two drives to give them a quick 14-0 lead behind a 73-yard and 47-yard touchdown runs. Suwannee cut the lead to 14-6 in the second quarter off a Greg Swinson 2-yard run early in the quarter. But that would be the closest the Bulldogs would get. Blake’s 39-yard run, Colton Jones’ 19-yard field goal and Soron Williams’ fumble recovery in the end zone, increased the lead to 316 at the half. Suwannee successfully converted an onside kick and drove 47 yards culminating with Jimmie Taylor (11-for 36, 116 yards) hitting Andre Zanders for a 15-yard score, cutting the lead to 31-14. However, the momentum was short lived as Williams returned the ensuing kickoff 80 yards for a score and just like that Fort White was up again three scores 38-14. Swinson (72 yards on 16 carries) added a 14-yard touchdown to cut the lead to 38-22 but again Fort White answered back and tacked on two more scores, a Blake 12yard run and a JR Dixon 51-yard run to put it away. Taylor returned to the lineup taking over for starter Jackson Brown, who was sidelined with an illness. Suwannee (1-2) opens District 22A play traveling to Alachua for a 7:30 game with host Santa Fe.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2010 PAGE 4B SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK By Corey Davis ORANGE PARK-There is an old saying, always a bridesmaid never a bride. The saying couldn't be more true for the Branford girls track and field team, as the Bucs finished district runner-ups for the fifth consecutive year. With only a few remaining events left, host St. Johns Country Day held a slim 1.5 point lead over Branford but the Spartans pulled away to hold off the Bucs 219.50-191.00 to win its seventh consecutive district title. Hilliard was third with 102 points, Bell was fourth with 41, Hamilton County was fifth with 39, Trenton was sixth with 11.50 and Lafayette was seventh with 11.0. Things started off well for the Bucs, Logan Boss (7-06), Shantenna Cruz (700), Jullianna Roush (5-00) and Traci Baldeon (4-06) finished second, third, fifth and seventh in the pole vault Tuesday in Branford to pick up 21 points. Boss (4-10) and Montana Bailey (4-08) held off Hamilton's Jasmine Jackson (408) to finish second and third in the high jump. Baldeon (4-04) finished in a threeway tie for fifth to give the Bucs 16.50 points in the event. Hamilton's Bria Davis (14-05) finished third, Branford's Olivia Boney (14-02) finished fourth, Branford's Tiffany Williams (13-09) was fifth, Hamilton's Jasmine Dobson (13-06) was sixth and Branford's Stephanie Copeland (13-05) was seventh in the long jump. Williams (29-07) finished second in the triple jump ahead of Dobson (28-06) and Branfordís Tiphani Whitley (26-03). Copeland (35-00), Williams (27-09) and Erica Clark (27-06) finished first, third and fourth in the shot put, while Hamilton's Jasmine Daniels (27-03) finished fifth. Copeland (98-00) made it a sweep winning the discus. Boney (13.78) and Bailey (14.62) placed third and fifth in the 100 dash, while Boney (29.23) finished third in the 200. Melissa Dingus (1:10.90) and Kristel Sanders (1:11.50) finished third and fourth for the Bucs in the 400 dash. Lafayette's Lauren Solano (1:14.40), Hamilton's Samantha Marcano (1:17.70) and Shelby Dodge (1:19.40) finished sixth through eighth. Bailey (2:45.90) placed fourth in the 800 and was joined by teammates Jena Deas (2:58.20) and Katrina Hale (2:58.90), whom placed seventh and eighth, in the top eight. Branford's Ashley Horn (5:53.00) held off Lafayette's Kaley Koon (5:57.00) to finish third in the 1600 run, while teammates Claudia Chance (6:43.00) and Amiee Brasfield (6:55.00) finished seventh and eighth. Horn (13:00.00) placed second in the 3200, while teammates Kendall Hall (14:44.17), Chance (15:50.00) and Heather Woodman (16:51) finished fourth through sixth. Boss (19.07) and Lauren Suggs (20.37) finished fifth and sixth in the 100 hurdles. Boss (53.48) and Lafayette's Chanteria Thornton (1:03.32) finished second and sixth in the 300 hurdles. Hamilton County (57.03) held off Branford (57.39) to finish third in the 4x100 relay. Branford (4:57.98) was second in the 4x400 relay and won the 4x800 relay with a time of 11:56.10, while Hamilton County (13:04.00) was third. Boys Before they even took the track, Hamilton County boys faced an enormous 28.5 deficit. However, thanks to several top five finishes in numerous events, the Trojans were able to overcome the deficit and win their first district title in two years and in the process end Branfordís two-year title run. Hamilton County held off Branford 190.0 to 180.50 to win the District 5-1A title. Host St. Johns Country Day was third with 87.5, Bell was fourth with 63.0, Lafayette was fifth with 57.0, Hilliard was sixth with 38.0 and Trenton was seventh with 16.0 points. "What a great bunch of kids we have," Hamilton County coach Ron Hall said. "I have never spotted someone 30 points and come back and win. Hopefully this title will encourage more kids to come out for track next season." Two days earlier in Branford, St. Johns and Branford were the lone representatives to compete in the pole vault competition. Branford swept the first three places behind Aubrey Sapp (7-06), Laz Hernandez (7-00) and Billy Peck (6-06) and Mason Tyler (6-00) tied for fourth to grab an early 28.5 lead heading into the rest of the meet completed Thursday at St. Johns. Anthony Ingram (21-01) and Antonio Turner (20-10) went first and second in the long jump ahead of Branford's John Perry (20-09) and also got a seventh place finish from Alfonso Willis (19-01), to cut the lead quickly picking up 20 points in the first event. Lafayette's Austin Anderson (19-05) finished fifth in the event putting the Hornets on the board. Hamilton surged ahead in the second event as the Trojans took first, fourth, sixth and seventh in the triple jump to gain an additional 20 points. Turner (4303) won the event ahead of Perry (42-04), while Simmons (40-11), William Hill (4002) and Willis (38-06) went fourth, sixth and seventh. Ingram (6-04) and Gerald Bristol (6-02) finished second and third in the high jump just ahead of Branford's William Clemons (5-06). SPORTS The following photos were recently found after having originally thought to have been accidentally erased. Branford, Hamilton and Lafayette all competed in the District 5-1A Track and Field meet last April at St. Johns Country Day School in Orange Park.

Photo: Corey Davis Continued From Page 4B made 31 playoff appearances (including every year this decade), 14 Final Fours and won three state titles. Jefferson hasn’t been to the playoffs since 1997, while Hamilton last went in 1979. Before last season, Lafayette hadn’t been to the playoffs since 2001. Gainesville P.K. Yonge, which has made 19 playoff appearances (10 in a row), including six Final Fours (winning two state titles) is the king of District 5-1A. Essentially, Branford is fighting with eight other teams in the district for the runner-up spot each season. Joining Branford is Bell (11 appearances), Bronson (4), Chiefland (12), Dixie County (8), Hawthorne (5), St. Francis (4) and Trenton with nine appearances. Branford’s only trip to the state playoffs was in 2002 when they were swept by Chiefland in two games, 15-0 and 15-3. Suwannee on the other hand doesn’t have to play a state power like the others but for whatever reason hasn’t been successful either. Santa Fe leads District 5-3A with 26 playoff appearances, including 11 of the past 13 years, while members Williston (8), Newberry (2), Fort White (5) and Suwannee (8) combined have less playoff appearances than Santa Fe. Fort White, only 10 years old, has finished as the district runner-up the last two years behind Santa Fe. Newberry hasn’t been since 1982 while Williston hasn’t been since 2004. The nineties were good for Suwannee as they made playoff appearances in 1990, 1991, 1993, 1995, 1996 and 1999, but haven’t since.

No. 8 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE IX, SECTION 1 ARTICLE XII, SECTION 31 (Legislative) Ballot Title: REVISION OF THE CLASS SIZE REQUIREMENTS FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

This amendment specifies that class size limits do not apply to virtual classes, requires the Legislature to provide sufficient funds to maintain the average number of students required by this amendment, and schedules these revisions to take effect upon approval by the electors of this state and to operate retroactively to the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year.

Dated: August 4, 2010. Barry A. Baker As Clerk of the Court BY: Sharon Hale As Deputy Clerk 9/22, 29 Continued From Page 7 SPORTS over visiting Branford (1-2, 0-1). On the Cardinals’ second possession, Blake McLain busted through a hole for a 10-yard gain to get them inside the 30 yard line. Quarterback Andrew Neswiacheny scrambled 9 yards to the 11. Two plays later Erik Paubtan took a toss sweep from Neswiacheny giving the Cardinals a 7-0 lead with 3:21 left in the first. Branford had some success on its next drive as Kyle Certain (48 yards on 17 carries) ran for 9 yards in three plays, before a high snap over Certain’s head sailed 15 yards behind the line of scrimmage, prompting a rare third down punt to start the second quarter. The high snap was one of several things to go wrong for the Bucs on offense via turnovers or other miscues. Defensively, the Bucs contained the Cardinals’ rushing attack, holding them to 84 yards on 37 carries. Just before the half, the Cardinals put together a nine-play, 80-yard drive that culminated with a Neswiacheny 44-yard touchdown pass to John Neloms down the left sideline increasing the score to 14-0 with 1:59 left in the half. Another high snap over Certain’s head gave the Cardinals the ball at the 27 yard line with under a minute left till half. Neswiacheny (8 of 13 for 142 yards) connected with Jerame Harris for a 11-yard gain to the 16 yard line. A pass spiked into the ground with 1.1 seconds left allowed Neloms to convert a 33-yard field goal, despite David Bass partially blocking it, giving the Cardinals a 17-0 halftime lead. Branford regrouped at the half and look refocused in the third quarter as the Bucs put together their best drive of the night. For a change of pace, Branford coach Bill Wiles inserted Kendrick Prevatt in at quarterback to run the single-wing offense. Prevatt picked up 16 yards in the first three plays of the drive. Alternating Prevatt and Certain, the Bucs began to move the ball as Certain accumulated 32 yards on the drive to put them inside the ten. However, another bad snap pushed them back to the 15 yard line and a delay of game penalty made it fourth and long. Faced with fourth and 17, Certain rushed outside the pocket and gained 9 yards before being pushed out of bounds by Harris, surrendering the ball over to Snyder. A score there would have cut the lead to 17-7 and given the Bucs some much needed momentum in the third quarter. Instead the momentum swung the Cardinals’ way, who were able to keep the Bucs offense in check and off the field. “I need to figure out what’s going on offensively,” Wiles said. “If I knew I would have fixed it already. It’s on me on those bad snaps, the kids executed but sometimes we weren’t on the same page. One of those snaps, one of our guys thought it was a different play and took off running. “In the second half, we would make a positive play and then a bad one, Wiles said. “If we score on that first drive, we’re back in it.” Wiles talked about the decision to not kick the field goal and go for it on fourth down. “We thought a field goal does us no good there,” Wiles said. “We have to come up with better ways to move the ball consistently.” Wiles was pleased with his how well his defense played, especially in the second half shutting the Cardinals out. “I thought we played very hard and well, especially defensively,” Wiles said. “Big plays killed us though, like that toss play, slant play, if we make the tackle on third and long play they punt.” “The kids are resilient, though. We played a lot better than last week, but with our offense you have to be as close as perfect as you can. We are what we are, we don’t have a lot of game breaking speed. We just have to finish the deal.” Branford will try to rebound as they travel to Tallahassee Friday to play host Maclay at 7 p.m. Continued From Page 1BThe Bucs stop hereBishop Snyder 17, Branford 0 Clockwise from top: Branford defense tries to contain Bishop Snyder’s offense early on, Branford cheerleaders hold up the sign minutes before the Bucs take the field, ‘Cage the Cardinals’, Kyle Certain gets ready to call the signal, Branford cheerleaders were all smiles despite the outcome of the game, Branford coach Bill Wiles gathers the team together during a timeout.

Thomas Kielbasa Florida National Guard Public Affairs ST. AUGUSTINE Nearly four-and-a-half centuries ago a tiny band of citizen-soldiers stood on a rainy shoreline in what is now northeast Florida. They rallied together to defend their homes from attacks in the fledgling Spanish settlement of St. Augustine. Although they probably didn't realize it that day in 1565, they were laying down the roots of what would become Florida's militia and National Guard traditions. On Sept. 16, the Florida National Guard and the Florida Department of Military Affairs celebrated the 445th anniversary of an event some historians recognize as the first known muster of citizensoldiers in what would later evolve into the continental United States. More than 100 Soldiers, Airmen and civilians gathered at the historic St. Francis Barracks in downtown St. Augustine to recognize the 445th anniversary and learn from historical re-enactors about the weapons and clothing used by those first militia soldiers. The seven re-enactors from the Florida Living History educational group not only dressed the part of early-Florida militiamen, but showed off a small arsenal of replica 16th century weapons including crossbows, swords, halberds and primitive firearms. "This is the first recorded militia muster in what is now the (continental) United States Sept. 16, 1565," explained Florida Living History president Mark Schmitt, who was dressed in a typical costume of an early Spanish settler. "They were tasked with defending the settlement here in St. Augustine, and defending the people and property. So that was the start of the first militia." Adjutant General of Florida Maj. Gen. Emmett Titshaw, whose own command philosophy titled "Linking Our Heritage to Our Horizons" reflects the importance of history in the National Guard, addressed the celebrants and urged them to be "true to our history and our heritage." "It is extremely important to know where we came from, and who we are," the adjutant general said. "Today we have an opportunity to celebrate 445 years of our rich history...Let me just simply say 'Happy Birthday to us.'" He noted that this event was the beginning of a five-year program to educate people about Florida National Guard history, culminating in 2015 with the 450th anniversary of the founding of St. Augustine. According to the Florida National Guard State Historian's Office, the "first muster" took place on Sept. 16, 1565 when Pedro Menendez de Aviles gathered around him the soldiers of his small Spanish army, as well as the civilian settlers that had accompanied him to the newly established presidio town of St. Augustine. He was about to march north to the French settlement of Fort Caroline near the mouth of the St. Johns River, with the purpose of driving out the "usurpers of Spanish land." of 'First Muster' celebrated by Florida National Guard445thanniversaryMore than 100 Soldiers, Airmen and civilians gathered in downtown St. Augustine to recognize the 445th anniversary of the First Muster.

In general, the earlier cancer is detected, the more likely a person is to survive. Such is the case with breast cancer. When breast cancer is detected in its earliest stage (stage 0), the rate of recovery is 100 percent. However, when breast cancer is not detected until its later stages, the survival rate is less than 20 percent. Such a reality underlies the importance of early detection. While an abnormality in the breast often shows up on a mammogram, women can also look and feel for additional symptoms as well. According to the American Cancer Society, the following unusual changes in the breast could be indicative of breast cancer, and women who notice any of these symptoms should report them to their physician immediately and schedule a screening. * a lump in the underarm area * nipple discharge other than breast milk * persistent pains in the breast * skin irritation or dimpling * swelling of the breast, be it all or part of the breast * redness of the nipple or breast skin * scaliness of the nipple or breast skin * thickening of the nipple or breast skin For more information on breast cancer, visit the American Cancer Society Web site at www.cancer.org. Symptoms of Breast Cancer Not Always Easy to Discover Because his plan called for the use of the majority of his regular soldiers, Menendez drew upon Spanish laws governing the militia, or milicia, in an imperial province. As both the civil governor and commander-in-chief of the military establishment he had the authority to call all free male settlers in the presidio province to active service. That first muster in St. Augustine consisted of approximately 50 men. The exact location of that first muster is unknown, but local historians and archeologists believe it lies a few miles north of the present site of the Florida National Guard headquarters. In the earliest tradition of the citizen-soldier, the musters of the late 1500s and early 1600s were not much more than simple gatherings of able-bodied men in the town square. It wasn't until 1671 that volunteer militia units were organized in St. Augustine. Florida National Guard Historian Greg Moore noted that while the English militia tradition in the Massachusetts Bay Colony is credited with giving the modern National Guard its earliest organized regiments, it is a fact of history that the Spanish first brought the European tradition men available for short terms of military service in time of war or domestic turmoil to the New World ... first in Cuba and Puerto Rico, then to the continent at St. Augustine. "Today we can take great pride in tracing our roots to the men who mustered under Pedro Menendez de Aviles in St. Augustine on Sept. 16, 1565," Moore said. The event also coincided with the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month in Florida, which Gov. Charlie Crist called in a statement: "...a special time to recognize the contributions of HispanicAmericans and their impact on our state's past, present and future." The governor noted that Hispanic culture and history have "enriched our communities, economy and way of life" since the founding of Florida by Spanish explorers in the mid-16th century. Historical re-enactors gave the event an air of authenticity. Courtesy photoContinued From Page 2 of 'First Muster' celebrated by Florida National Guard445thanniversary

He retired early and took a part-time job as a night watchman so he could relax more. One morning he came home and told me that he was fired from his new job after only a few weeks. "What happened?" I asked him. He explained that he had fallen asleep while at his desk and someone had broken into the building. Working so late at night, I could understand how he could doze off. "But you're such a light sleeper," I said. "I'm surprised you didn't wake up from the sounds." "I didn't get fired for falling asleep," he confessed. "I was fired for having my earplugs in!" (Thanks to Alberta J.) Reader Humor Laughs For Sale Duane CashŽ Holze & Todd CarryŽ Holze www.ClassifiedGuys.com Increased MarketabilityThink you're out of touch with the job market? Then acquire a new skill by taking a class or professional workshop. Ongoing educational courses, workshops or advanced certifications not only improve your job prospects, but can also boost your salary. According to the Robert Half and Accountemps Salary Guide , these types of skill enhancements can increase your salary range by as much as 15%. It could be the edge you need to land the new job. No Job?If you are out of work, don't get depressed. Instead, take initiative. Consider joining a local support group to get new ideas, job leads and emotional support. You can even try online sites for ideas and feedback on resume or interviewing techniques. Although looking for a new job can be daunting, having emotional support during your unemployment can help boost your attitude and keep you positive. And along the way, who knows, you may end up boosting someone else's spirits as well. Fast FactsDear Classified Guys, Twenty-six resumes,twenty-six cover letters and zero interviews.I faxed them,mailed them,and delivered them in person.I have applied to at least one per day.I've called to confirm when they said not to.I've emailed to ask for an interview after the polite two weeks.I comb the newspaper every morning and the jobs I'm applying for are disappearing.Yet I'm still unemployed.It's getting harder to get out of my pajamas in the morning.Why bother? It's just my silent telephone and me.And yes,I have checked.The ringer is turned on.Please give me the secrets that will get me through this.€€€Cash: Good first step. The ringer is turned on. But is the telephone plugged in the wall? You may just want to check for a dial tone too!Carry: The last thing you need to do right now is get depressed. Otherwise, it will be really hard to get excited when you actually do go for a job interview.Cash: So here are a couple of things you should do. First, maintain your routine. That means get up in the morning and get dressed. Staying in your pajamas all day only deteriorates your attitude. Before you know it, you'll be mowing the lawn in your bathrobe and slippers.Carry: Second, you need to do things that keep your spirits up. It's not only important for your overall happiness, but if you're depressed it's going to show in your interviews.Cash: Make sure you exercise, go out with friends and most importantly surround yourself with positive people. You can join an unemployed support group to find people in your same situation. It's important that you enjoy your time off and get away from the job-hunting periodically. That way you return to it with a fresh attitude.Carry: Now in terms of your job search, it sounds like you're doing all the right things. We would suggest having a professional review your cover letter and resume. It is possible that there are some weak spots that are inhibiting you from landing an interview.Cash: It could also be possible that you are targeting the wrong employers or applying for jobs outside your qualifications. Aprofessional recruiter, for example, may be able to help you.Carry: And if you need something to do while you're unemployed, try temp work. This often leads to permanent positions. You could also volunteer or join some clubs.Cash: And keep positive, before you know it you'll be asking for vacation from your new job!

PAGE 8, SEPTEMBER 22 & 23, 2010 CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE WWW.NFLAONLINE.COM SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA THE Last week, we took a look at the demographics of a typical coupon user. Did you know that the heaviest users of coupons make more than $70,000 per year? According to studies by Nielsen Co., those who use coupons the least earn less than $20,000 per year. Why dont lower-income people use coupons? Is there a stigma to using coupons that prevents some people from using them? Actually, there is. Theres a widespread belief among the non-coupon set that only poor people use coupons.Ž Of course, according to Nielsen studies, the opposite is true. Some people, though, are genuinely afraid of appearing poorŽ in the checkout lane. They dont want someone to think they must be enduring financial hardship. In Super-Couponing workshops, I often hear stories from readers who say they have been shamedŽ in the checkout lane of a grocery store. One woman was watching the cashier scan her large pile of coupons and the couple standing behind her turned to each other and said, Remember when we had to use coupons a few years ago?Ž As if having to use coupons is somehow embarrassing! Another shopper, a father with a baby, stood in the lane handing coupons to the cashier and heard a woman behind him comment, I know how much you must be struggling, having to use all those coupons.Ž She handed him a $20 bill and patted him on the shoulder! Fortunately, both shoppers took the patronizing comments in stride and made sure to point out that they were choosing to use coupons, not forced to. But stories like these suggest that some people perceive coupon shoppers as needy. And the idea that someone, anyone, may assume youre poor if you use coupons is enough to deter some people from even considering picking up a pair of scissors. Now, thats the real shame! Cultural attitudes may play a part, too. After teaching a coupon workshop in Spanish to a Spanish-speaking audience, I learned from the people in the class that there are strong, preconceived notions about coupons within some Hispanic communities. One twenty-something college student told me that her mother equated coupon use to food stamps: Mama was so mad that I was going to a coupon class!Ž Manufacturers are working to break down some of these notions and attract Spanish-speaking audiences. SmartSource has issued its newspaper coupon insert in both Spanish and English and General Mills publishes a free, quarterly Spanish magazine called Que Rica VidaŽ filled with recipes and coupons. Lack of Internet access is another barrier to couponing. While anyone can clip coupons, the heaviest users turn to the Internet to maximize savings. They utilize printable coupons and electronic coupons that can be loaded online to shoppers cards. They rely on grocery list matchupŽ websites that offer the easy ways to plan a shopping trip and craft a grocery list reflecting the best deals of the week and which coupons to use to get the lowest prices. If youre looking for more information on any of these tools, visit www.supercouponing.com and click Getting StartedŽ for links to many popular printable coupon, electronic coupon and match-up sites. The coupon enthusiasts I know are savvy shoppers who know the very best prices for the products they buy. Theyre experts at spotting a deal and theyre not put off by any so-called stigmaŽ about using coupons. And, they realize that using coupons is a smart, even fun way to keep more of the money they earn in their wallets. (c) CTW Features Jill Cataldo, a coupon workshop instructor, writer and mother of three, never passes up a good deal. Learn more about couponing at her website, www.supercouponing.com.

The band last played the Bo Diddley Community Plaza for the most recent New Year’s Eve celebration and also participated in the 40th anniversary of Woodstock tribute concert last summer. That concert, headlined by The Relics, set a new “Free Fridays” attendance record by drawing more than 3,000 people. The four musicians who make up the band are Michelle Ott (percussion and guitar), Dan Tampas (voice and guitar), Fagan Arouh (voice and guitar) and Alan Hill (bass and occasional voice). With a hallmark of intricate vocal harmonies and tight arrangements, they perform acoustic originals, select standards and obscure classics in the realm of pop, folk, blues and jazz. They have described their music as folk and roll. When Hill and Tampas first played together nearly 35 years ago, Arouh was cutting his musical teeth in Nashville. Ott and Hill joined forces in another group around 1980. All of this experience and talent came together in 2001 to form Other Voices. Throughout their careers, Tampas and Arouh have written hundreds of songs in all styles, sentiments, shapes and sizes. Recently, the group’s repertoire has been enhanced by the addition of original tunes from Ott. Other Voices released its “Sampler” album of 10 original songs in May 2002 and a live recording of 14 more original songs was released in November 2004. They released “The Other Side of Other Voices” in December 2006 where they added drums, horns, keyboards and strings to the mix. The group recorded, produced and played all of the instruments on these recordings. 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.

For his artistic skill and resourcefulness, FSU Assistant Professor Jim Dawkins has earned an Entry of Merit nod in the 2010 Cocktail Napkin Sketch Contest, sponsored by the venerable industry magazine Architectural Record. The first-ever national competition of its kind was open to practicing U.S. architects and architecture students and “drew” a total of 1,322 pen-and-ink entries on the requisite 5” by 5” paper napkins. Only 16 entries earned accolades from Architectural Record’s jury of editors. “While this competition may seem a bit bizarre –– cocktail napkins? –– it is based on the architecture and design habit of talking business over lunch or drinks and brainstorming ideas on napkins,” said Eric Wiedegreen, chairman of the interior design program in the FSU College of Visual Arts, Theatre and Dance. “The size restriction and paper quality would only fuel efforts for a good designer and sketcher. This was right up Jim Dawkins’ alley. He happens to be an amazing sketcher and renderer. Given his 20 years of professional experience as a licensed architect, his teaching approach in our drawing classes is one of leading by example. And from a student’s viewpoint, if your professor can draw that well on a napkin, think of what he could do on a whole piece of paper.” Dawkins notes with a smile that the Entry of Merit designation from Architectural Record represents his very first honor for a building rendered on a coffee-stained cocktail napkin. He will add the quirky but prestigious honor to his formidable collection of top awards in architectural design, bestowed by the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and other organizations. Meanwhile, Dawkins is busy sketching the buildings that grace the Florida State University campus. Although the project isn’t yet complete, already it has attracted attention in faraway places. “I will be exhibiting an ongoing series of hand sketches of FSU campus buildings this month at Montana State University,” he said. “I anticipate documenting the majority of the university’s buildings via hand sketching in the next few years.” A faculty member at Florida State since 2009, Dawkins teaches hand-drawing graphic techniques and a studio course in interior design.

SEPTEMBER 22 & 23, 2010, PAGE 13CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE WWW.NFLAONLINE.COM SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIABy E. Kirsten Peters CNHI News Service With the price of gold well over $1,000 per troy ounce, people have asked me if they should sell Great Aunt Edna’s rings and bracelets. Is the price of gold going to go up more based on fears of economic troubles? Will governments around the world take actions that change the price, one way or another? And what value should we put on loyalty to Great Aunt Edna’s memory? A geologist cannot usefully advise you about economic policy or about balancing Edna’s memory with paying the rent. But the high price of gold has led me to some rumination about the world’s first, extraordinarily precious metal. Not all that glitters is gold, to be sure, but when I once had the chance to personally heft a gold bar (no easy feat for a lightweight), I surely admitted that gold has a strong allure. I was visiting a geologist at Round Mountain, Nevada, where gold comes out of an open-pit mine and is processed on-site. The final step of the work creates gold bars, called “dore.” That term means they have not yet been highly purified, so they can have some silver and other metals in them. But they’re mostly gold. It’s tough to think clearly about gold when you’re in the presence of a lot of it, like it’s tough to be completely unemotional in the presence of the Hope Diamond. But here, in the safety of print and away from stacks of gold bars, let me lay out a bit of what I know about gold. People likely learned to mine gold long ago where it occurred in the richest stream and beach deposits. If gold grade is high enough, you can literally look down at your feet as you walk along a sandy beach and pick out small nuggets and grains of gold. When gold grade drops below that, individual prospectors can either pan for gold or send their sandy diggings down sluices to process it. Both approaches separate dense gold particles from the lighter sand around it. But gold is found in quite different geologic settings, too. It’s often in veins of quartz in other rocks. (In the ancient world, Mother Nature was thought to be in some sense alive, so it wasn’t surprising the Earth would have “veins,” just as you have veins in your arms. Odd from a modern perspective, but true and preserved in our language through the millennia.) Geological veins are made by fluids, circulating in the Earth and depositing minerals that get left behind. I spent several years in graduate school studying how much gold will dissolve in fluids in the Earth. (Also odd but true, wasting my youth in such a way.) One impressive thing about gold in your daily life is that it doesn’t dissolve at all. The ring on your finger won’t dissolve if you throw it in the boiling pot of pasta water. The gold on your crowned tooth doesn’t dissolve despite years (or decades for some of us) of being immersed in spit, hot coffee and all the rest. So the question for my studies as a student, essentially, was what conditions and chemicals in the Earth made it possible for gold to dissolve into fluids and move, then drop out of solution and into the veins from which we mine it today? The answer had to do with sulfur and oxygen and some difficult points of chemistry, with lots of calculations thrown in to add to the labor. But the main issue was that the conditions in which gold dissolves are rare – just as you know from your day-to-day living. And that brings us back to Great Aunt Edna’s rings. There’s no harm in taking them in and asking for a bid. But before you take the cash and walk away from the family gold, I’d recommend leaving the buy-back place and going home. One night’s sleep could help you reach a decision you won’t regret, one way or another. There was, after all, only one Great Aunt Edna. E.

CNHI News Service distributes her column.Rock Doc: Gold is precious in more ways than one GAINESVILLE — Ants are not out of their weight class when defending trees from the appetite of nature’s heavyweight, the African elephant, a new University of Florida study finds. Columns of angered ants will crawl up into elephant trunks to repel the ravenous beasts from devouring tree cover throughout droughtplagued East African savannas, playing a potentially important role in regulating carbon sequestration in these ecosystems, said Todd Palmer, a UF biology professor and co-author of a paper being published this week in the journal Current Biology. “It really is a David and Goliath story, where these little ants are up against these huge herbivores, protecting trees and having a major impact on the ecosystems in which they live,” Palmer said. “Swarming groups of ants that weigh about 5 milligrams each can and do protect trees from animals that are about a billion times more massive.” The mixture of trees and grasses that make up savanna ecosystems are traditionally thought to be regulated by rainfall, soil nutrients, plant-eating herbivores and fire, he said. “Our results suggest that plant defense should be added to the list,” he said. “These ants play a central role in preventing animals that want to eat trees from doing extensive damage to those trees.” While conducting research in the central highlands of Kenya, where hungry elephants have destroyed much of the tree cover, Palmer said he and his colleague and former UF postdoctoral student, Jacob Goheen, now a University of Wyoming zoology, physiology and botany professor, noticed that elephants rarely ate a widespread tree species known as Acacia drepanolobium where guardian ants aggressively swarm anything that touches the trees. But they would feed on other trees that did not harbor these ants. The researchers decided to test whether these tiny ants were repelling the world’s largest land mammal by serving as bodyguards for the tree in exchange for shelter and the food it supplied in the form of a sugary nectar solution. So they offered elephants at a wildlife orphanage a choice between these “ant plant” trees, with and without ants on the branches, and their favorite species of tree, the Acacia mellifera, to which the researchers added ants to some of its otherwise antless branches. “We found the elephants like to eat the “ant plant” trees just as much as they like to eat their favorite tree species, and that when either tree species had ants on them, the elephants avoided those trees like a kid avoids broccoli,” he Palmer said. Also, the researchers removed ants from “ant trees” out in the field to see if elephants would attack them undefended, and a year later found much more damage than on trees with ants. Satellite images between 2003 and 2008 confirmed the ants were having a widespread, long-term effect throughout the savanna, he said. The ants did not seem to annoy tree-feeding giraffes, who used their long tongues to swipe them away from their short snouts, in marked contrast to the long nose or trunk on an elephant, Palmer said. The inside of an elephant’s trunk is tender and highly sensitive to thousands of biting ants swarming up into it, he said. “An elephant’s trunk is a truly remarkable organ, but also appears to be their Achille’s heel when it comes to squaring off with an angry ant colony,” he said. Because it appears that smell alerts elephants to avoid trees that are occupied by ants, it raises the question of whether ant odors might be applied to crops to deter elephants from feeding on them, just as DEET helps repel mosquitoes from people, he said. “A big issue in east Africa is elephants damaging crops, which is one reason elephants have been harassed and sometimes killed,” he said. “There’s been a lot of interest in the conservation world about how to minimize the conflict elephants have with humans and particularly how to keep elephants from raiding agricultural fields.” One predicted outcome of global warming is more frequent and intense droughts, which will force desperate elephants to eat everything they can to survive, Palmer said “With more droughts, the extent to which elephants destroy and remove trees may increase and potentially shift the ecosystems back to grasslands,” he said. Ants’ role in saving trees is critical with the interest in slowing the accumulation of greenhouse gasses since trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, Palmer said. “These ‘ant plants’ don’t cover just a few hundred acres but are distributed throughout east Africa from southern Sudan all the way over to eastern Zaire and down through the horn of Africa and Tanzania,” he said. “So they potentially play a big role in terms of regulating carbon dynamics in these ecosystems.”Ants take on Goliath role in protecting trees in the savanna from elephants Miss & Little Miss MajesticPageant 2010The Miss Majestic Pageant Association is seeking contestants to compete for the title of Miss & Little Miss Majestic.
