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.

Staff
Keith Allen Hughes, jailed in
connection with the Aug. 25
murder of three members of a W
McAlpin family, hanged him-
self in his cell at the Suwannee ' .^
County Jail Saturday, Sheriff
Tony Cameron said.
Details remain sketchy, but Keith Allen
Hughes, 25, was found dead Hughes
"early Saturday morning,"
Cameron said. It was estimated
he had been dead about an hour when discovered,
according to Cameron.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is
handling the investigation. Cameron referred fur-
ther inquiries to that agency, a spokesperson for
which declined comment pending completion of
the investigation.
Another source said Hughes hanged himself
with a bedsheet.
Hughes had been jailed on charges of conspira-

home. Hughes was a former employee of the

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: Can nail-biting pose any dental
problems?
A: Unfortunately, nail-biting is more than an
unsightly habit. The habit can leave more
than stunted fingernails. It can lead to
problems with the temporomandibular joints,
the joints in front of the ears where the jaw
bones meet, also known as the TMJs.
Any activity, like nail-biting, that involves
holding the teeth in an unnatural position for
extended penods increases the possibility of
injury to the TMJ. Over a long penod, the
unnatural position of the jaws involved in
nail-biting will stretch the muscles in the jaw,
causing pain and throwing off the balance of
the TMJs. If a very young child begins the
habit, it can contnbute to a gap developing
between the front two teeth. Also, the type
of person who is prone to nail and finger
biting, may also be prone to picking at their
gums.
Some dentists and physicians recommend
putting a non-toxic, unpleasant tasting lotion
on the fingers. Others believe putting a
bandage on a finger could serve as a
reminder and deterrent. If you have a nail-
biter in your house or you are yourself a
nail-biter, talk with yoru dentist about ways
to break the habit.

THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLER



Shame


on us
By Jim Holmes
Our public school superintendent, Jerry Scarbor-
ough, seems like a plain speaking man.
That's good and believe me, you don't always find
that among elected officials. Many are apparently
happy to tell you what you want to hear, rather than
what you need to hear. Scarborough doesn't seem to
work that way. In fact, at a recent meeting I attend-
ed, he told his audience something that stunned me.
And I don't think that I was the only one in the room
to have that reaction.
Our superintendent says that 40 percent of our
county's five-year-old children enter kindergarten
without the basic skills they need to even begin the
learning process ... yet succeed at it. FORTY-PER-
CENT!
We are speaking about children who -- due to no
fault of their own -- are unable to name their colors
or tell the difference between a square and a circle.
Youngsters who have no concept of what is different
and what is the same. Children who are incapable of
determining that the letter A isn't the letter Z or that
the numbers 1 and 5 are anything more than scrib-
bles on a piece of paper.
I did some research for this column and discov-
ered we are talking about abilities so elementary that
chimpanzees are able to learn them. Yet, we in this
community are apparently willing to allow nearly
half of our five-year olds to start their formal educa-
tion without having mastered those same basic
skills. Something is very wrong with that picture.
And as a result of our shortcomings, that cute lit-
tle tyke's future may be in jeopardy the very first day
of school, for this is the type of child who is more
likely to become a classroom disciplinary problem
or a school yard bully. That's not because these kids
are bom evil. It is because they can quickly learn to
feel like "losers" and in response strike out in anger
and frustration. By the teen years, such children
may well become truants, unwed mothers and/or
dropouts ... meaning a potential life-time of persis-
tent unemployment and a significantly higher prob-
ability of imprisonment.
Now, not every child who begins school lagging
behind will fail in life, but by starting out in arrears,
he or she is less likely to reach their full academic
potential. In addition, those unfortunate kids who do
end-up failures will -- in one way or another -- im-
pact each of us who pay taxes in this county.
Our school superintendent will be the first to tell
you that he doesn't have any magic solution to this
problem. None exists. But like alcoholism, the first
step to recovery is simply for our community, as a
whole, to admit that we have a major problem ...
followed by a sincere county-wide willingness to do
something about it. To start with, tough questions
need to be asked of our daycares, our Head Start
Programs, our Pre-K Programs, our high school par-
enting classes and ourselves.
And neither our superintendent nor our school
board should be expected to be the only ones ad-
dressing this dilemma. In addition to school advi-
sory committees and PTAs, it would seem the busi-
ness community and its chamber of commerce
should be directly involved, as well as our churches,
and civic organizations... all working together in a
unified effort, such as a community-wide task force.
The fact that 40 percent of our children and grand-
children are starting school at such an academic dis-
advantage is nothing short of shameful. But let's be
clear about it. That shame is not theirs. It is ours!

OPINION



Liberals confuse me


Christine O'Donnell, U.S. Sen-
ate candidate from Delaware, has
faced considerable criticism and .
news media attention about her
youthful association with witch-
craft. Have we seen similar news
media attention given to other
politicians who have made
bizarre remarks that border on
gross stupidity -- possibly luna-
cy? BY WALT]
During a congressional Armed
Services hearing in March, Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., ex-
pressed concern that stationing 8,000 Marines and their
equipment on Guam, our Pacific territory, could cause the
island "to become so overly populated that it will tip over
and capsize." Such a remark is grossly stupid but the liber-
al press didn't give it anywhere near the amount of atten-
tion and derision that they gave Christine O'Donnell.


On the campaign trail in March
2008, then-presidential candidate
fTI'NORIT Y Obama told his Beaverton, Ore.,
audience, "Over the last 15
V\ EW months, we've traveled to every
comer of the United States. I've
Snow been in 57 states? I think one
left to go." Whether Obama mis-
2010 Creators Syndicate spoke or not, that's a grossly stu-
pid remark, but white liberals
ER WILLIAMS among the intellectual elite and
the liberal news media all but ig-
nored it. Of course, when former Vice President Dan
Quayle misspelled potatooe" they pounced upon it and had
a field day.
So what might explain the liberals giving Hank Johnson
and Obama a pass whilst playing up the perceived short-

To the Editor:

I just read the Mayor's Comer in the 09/24/10 edition of
the Democrat. Wow! First and foremost, code enforce-
ment has not effectively been done away with in the City.
What did happen is that the City seized an opportunity to
consolidate the code enforcement responsibilities with
those of the building inspector. Perhaps others in the com-
munity have noticed that there is not much building occur-
ring inside the City of Live Oak right now. This was a fis-
cally responsible move that will not set back the city. If
there truly have been some code enforcement issues this
week as the Mayor suggests, then the Mayor should have
contacted Roy Rogers, the building official, to resolve
them. There is no excuse for them not be handled as it was
made very clear in the meeting who now has that responsi-
bility. To say there is no one to fulfill the role of code en-
forcement officer is a gross understatement.
In regards to the commercial sewer increase, the Mayor
did make a proposal to lessen the blow to commercial cus-
tomers but it is not sustainable. The only reason there is
extra money available in the "garbage fund" is because last
year service was cut in half and the rates remained the
same. Ultimately, any savings you receive through the
Mayor's proposal you already prepaid. I have opposed
this budget from the first consensus taken at a budget
workshop. I have proposed how to eliminate the rate in-
crease altogether with little or no support. It is simple.
The City must make a loan payment this year in the amount
of $100,000. Let's take the $51,000 in raises out of the
budget, combine it with the $32,000 freed up in the code
enforcement budget, reduce all salaried people a percent-
age equal to the remaining $17,000 and leave our utility
rates alone. Government should have to cut government
when commercial customers and homeowners are having
to cut back at their homes and places of business. YOU
CANNOT RAISE RATES AND GIVE RAISES!
Lastly, if the worst decision the Mayor has seen in 34
years at City Hall is the consolidation of two positions in
an economic recession to save the taxpayers money, then


he does not see what I see. If you have a concern or sug-
gestion in the City, please do not hesitate to contact me at
(386) 590-5224. Thank you!

Sincerely,
Adam M. Prins

To the Editor:

Concerning the Rant and Rave comment about three
Suwannee County deputies being paid for security outside
Suwannee County at the Fort White football game. My
name is David Poole. I am one of the three deputies that
was at the Fort White football game. Please allow me to ex-
plain and maybe the person who wrote the comment will
not be so angry. I have a daughter in the SHS band. This
is my fourth year as a band parent. As a band parent I
sometimes go with the band as a helper/chaperone/securi-
ty/deputy. The time I spend helping the band is on my own
time. I do not get paid by anyone for the time I spend with
the band. I sometimes wear my uniform because in the
past, the band boosters asked me to and the Sheriff ap-
proved it.
One of the other deputies at this football game is a re-
serve deputy. He was not being paid to be there either. He
has volunteered for several years assisting with football
games, basketball games, funerals, parades, county fair,
etc.
The third deputy was there because he is the school re-
source officer assigned to the high school.
I hope this explanation helps this person feel better. Most
organizations need volunteers to be able to function ade-
quately.
May we all work together in keeping our children safe.

ed in 2005 by two art teachers from Florida. Ann Ayers
and Ellen McMillan, of Coconut Creek, found a way for
students to express their feelings about what's going on
in the world and in their lives. In the first year, groups in
over 1,325 locations throughout the world were spinning
pinwheels on Sept. 21. There were approximately
500,000 pinwheels spinning throughout the world. Last

choose from. First, make sure it is clean and
prepared property, then you can use any exterior
paint that is recommended for use on concrete.
You can get creative and paint a pattern in it using
a sponge technique or paint faux bricks on it, the
list goes on and on, or you may choose to paint it
a solid color. Afterwards make sure to use a good
clear sealer on it. Come and see us here at Live

year (year four) over 2.3 million pinwheels were spin-
ning in over 3,000 locations, including the United States,
Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada, the Middle East,
African and South America. Locally, Suwannee High
School will be coordinating the Pinwheels for Peace pro-
ject this year.
This project is non-political -- peace doesn't necessari-
ly have to be associated with the conflict of war, it can
be related to violence/intolerance in our daily lives, to
peace of mind. To each of us peace can take on a differ-
ent meaning, but, in the end it all comes down to a sim-


ple definition: "a state of calm and serenity, with no anx-
iety, the absence of violence, freedom from conflict or
disagreement among people or groups of people."
SHS has made their pinwheels as part of the creating
process. Students wrote their thoughts on peace, created
images that corresponded to those thoughts on one side,
and on the flip side used solid colors) to project a
peaceful feeling. The assembled works were placed in a
shoe, symbolizing a wish moving in a forward direction,
then "planted" them for all to enjoy. The pieces are now
on view in the SHS Library.

159th Homecoming at Antioch Oct. 10


Antioch Baptist Church will celebrate its 159th Home-
coming on Oct. 10. This day is set aside each year to reflect
on God's goodness through the years and to look with an-
ticipation to His continued blessings and opportunities for
the future. It is a time for warm fellowship with church fam-
ily 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 activi-
ties. At 9:45 a.m. the musical group Delivered will be min-
istering 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 people 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 be-
ing active in the ministry of serving an interim pastor for


various churches. Antioch Baptist is excited for the oppor-
tunity 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 fellowship are sweet and
abundant at Homecoming and are always a blessing.
All church friends and family are cordially invited to at-
tend and celebrate Antioch's 159th Homecoming. The
church is located approximately 4 miles out County Road
795 (Boys Ranch Road). For more information, please call
the church office at 362-3101.

Pregnancy Care Center Walk/Run





set for Saturday


Submitted
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 Di-
rector, introduced the Church Challenge which added a whole new di-
mension 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 Coli-
seum. Registration starts at 8:30 a.m. A route map will be provid-
ed for the three-mile course. Food will be provided and the local
group "Fifth and Baya" will perform.

Staff
State Representative
Debbie Boyd (D-Newber-
ry) is this year's recipient
of the Florida Forestry As-
sociation's Legislator of
the Year Award. Each year
the Association recognizes
a deserving House and
Senate member for their
support of issues impor-
tant to the growers and
users of Florida's forest
resources. The award was
presented at the Florida
Forestry Association An-
nual Meeting in Destin on
Sept. 9.
At the presentation, As-
sociation President Mike
Gaff said Boyd "has
earned the reputation 'a
true friend of forestry'
through her promotion and
protection of Florida's
largest agriculture busi-
ness. This past session,
Rep. Boyd was instrumen-
tal in the passage of green-
belt legislation, to clarify
that simply placing your


property for sale would
not constitute a denial of
your greenbelt classifica-
tion. She is very deserving
of our legislator of the
year award."
On accepting the award,


J
Boyd said forests were agricultural
"essential to the environ- so important
ment and the economy and of life. That
especially to the people of ing property
north central Florida. We able so we
must all continue to work ing trees
together to protect the crops."

PILT required the Dis-
trict to pay taxes on public
lands for a 10-year period.
But with the recent passage
of legislation counties will
now receive PILT funds
until their populations
reach 150,000.
"This means the majori-
ty of our counties will see
an increase in PILT rev-
enue this year because tax-
es will be reinstated for
property that had previous-
ly fallen off the tax rolls
due to the 10-year cap,"
said District Assistant Ex-
ecutive Director Charlie
Houder. "This will result in
more revenue to support
our small counties."
Collectively, 11 counties
within the District will re-
ceive a total of $326,314 in


Two jailed

charges in
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr
Two men were recently
booked into the Suwannee
County Jail on drug-related
charges in separate, unre-
lated cases.
Steven Edward Staats,
46, of 1415 Pine Avenue,
Live Oak, was booked into
jail Sept. 22 charged with
trafficking hydrocodone,
possession of the prescrip-
tion drug Darvocet with the
intent to sell, the sale of
Darvocet within 1,000 feet
of a church and the unlaw-
ful use of a two-way com-
munication device. Accord-
ing to a probable cause affi-
davit, Staats sold 8.9 grams
of hydrocodone to a confi-
dential informant back on
November 30, 2009. The
transaction, which was au-
dio and video recorded by
authorities, reportedly took
place within 1,000 feet of a
school. Information regard-
ing Staats' additional
charges was not included in
the mentioned affidavit.
On Sept. 21, Edward Lee
Riley, 56, of 504 Clay St.,
Live Oak, was arrested and
charged with possession of
crack cocaine after an offi-
cer watched him travel
through a dark intersection
on a bike with no operable
lights east on Hamilton Av-
enue.

ter approached and stopped
Riley on Georgia Avenue.
"Upon contact with the
rider he seemed nervous,"
Slaughter wrote in his re-
port. "Riley's hands were
visibly shaking as he hand-

cation card. (He) kept
putting his hands in his
pockets, although I told
him not to several times."
As Slaughter was check-

56-year-old then asked if
he could take a seat.
"Approximately 30 sec-
onds later, Riley asked to
stand back up and if I want-

When Riley picked his
left hand off the ground,
the officer observed a
large piece of crack co-

had been. Slaughter re-
covered the illegal sub-

arrest, and transported
him to the Suwannee

agement classes.
Wesley Wainwright, the
BOCC's chairman and
District 5 representative,
criticized Conner in late
August due to Conner's
handling of employees. At
least one grievance has
been filed against Conner,
by a former employee who
is contesting his firing.
"I've always taken class-
es to enrich myself," said
Conner. "But if I said (los-


ing support from the chair-
man) didn't have anything
to do with taking the class,
I would be lying."
Conner said he has taken
Wainwright's criticism to
heart.
"I felt like it was a gift
and it's all according to
what kind of person you
are as how to receive it,"
Conner said Tuesday. "He
said I should change my
character, my style and
that's what I intend on do-
ing."


Man tied to

Continued From Page 1A

Two other suspects in the case, James Lindsey
Howze, 38, and Lonnie Robert Munn, 47, remain
jailed on charges including three counts each of
first-degree murder. A grand jury returned formal
indictments against the pair Tuesday (See story
Page 14A).
Hughes had also been scheduled to appear be-
fore the panel. Third Circuit State Attorney Skip
Jarvis declined to comment on whether his death
would affect the case against Howze and Munn.
Hughes was arrested Aug. 27, two days after
the murders.
He had been released from prison in April 2009
after serving a three-year sentence for arson, bur-
glary, aggravated assault and possession of a gun
by a convicted felon, crimes committed in Suwan-
nee County in 2006.

1:41 a.m. Saturday.
According to engineer,
Douglas Hutchins, Jack-
sonville, the train was east-
bound when he spotted a
person lying on the tracks
between the rails near the
crossing at Eva Avenue.
The engineer activated the
emergency braking system
but the pedestrian was
struck and killed.
According to LOPD
Chief Buddy Williams, the


train was going about 30
m.p.h. when Cooks was
hit.
Cooks' body was sent to
the Jacksonville Medical
Examiner's Office to de-
termine what may have
caused him to be lying on
the tracks.
When questioned about
the examiner's findings,
Williams said, "we simply
don't know, but we want to
check toxicity and all the
possibilities before we can
comment further."

Conner admitted that he
could have handled some
situations better. "I have a
tendency to play a lot, to
tease and cuss," he said,
"but that's usually the style
of fire and rescue stations
all over."
He continued, "I've done
some things wrong. I've
talked to people in the heat
of the moment in ways that
maybe I shouldn't have.
I've taken this opportunity
to watch my mouth. The
difference between me and
someone else in my posi-
tion is that I admit my mis-
takes and my faults."
Conner said he also apol-
ogized to the city of Live


Oak's fire chief for a con-
versation the two had on
the phone in August.
LOFD Chief Chad Croft
wrote a letter to Live Oak
city officials saying he had
called Conner to discuss one
of Conner's employees hav-
ing asked Croft for advice
on a work-related matter.
Croft said when he told
Conner that he was asked
by the employee to help
him but that Conner told
him not to "interfere with
county fire codes" and to
stay out of county business.
Conner said that he "was
probably pretty short with
him" but later apologized
by phone.


Peebles will close,

reopen as Goody's


Continued From Page 1A

In August 2009, Stage
Stores Inc. purchased the
intellectual properties of
Goody's when the retailer
filed for Chapter 7 bank-
ruptcy and liquidated the
remainder of its stores,
Bell explained. The Stage
company, which owns
trademarks for Peebles,
Bealls, Palais Royal, and
other stores, took posses-
sion of the Goody's name
and has returned the re-
tailer to regions where
many of its stores once ex-
isted.
"With the opening of
Goody's, customers will
see some of the same prod-
uct lines as Peebles, such
as Levi's and Nike's," Bell


said, "but because of our
branding model there will
be changes in various other
product lines."
She said customers can
expect brands such as Izod,
Chaps, Sketchers, U.S.
Polo Association, and more
to be sold at the Goody's
store.
The change isn't expect-
ed to have a major affect on
current personnel and staff,
said Bell.
In fact, the transition is
expected to be somewhat
seamless, said Patricia
Christie, manager at Pee-
bles.
"As far as I know, we're
basically closing as Pee-
bles and reopening as
Goody's at the end of Octo-
ber," she said.

Management of Cardiac DCM
A cardiomyopathy is a health problem related to the heart muscle. There
are several different types of cardiomyopathy; dilated cardiomyopathy
(DCM) is one such type. This condition is an abnormality in the
contraction of the heart ventricles, and dilation of the heart. Persons with
DCM have systolic dysfunction, which results in a reduced left ventricular
ejection fraction (LVEF). A diagnosis of DCM may include a LVEF of less
than 40 percent. Persons between the ages of 20 and 60 years are primarily
affected by the condition; however, persons of any age may be diagnosed
with DCM. Symptoms include difficulty breathing while exercising,
difficulty breathing at night, and swelling.
Persons who are diagnosed with DCM may be prescribed medications
based on symptoms and whether other conditions are present. Angiotensin
converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, such as ramipril (Altace) and
lisinopril (Zestril, Prinivil) may be prescribed. Beta-blockers, such as
propranolol (Inderal), may be prescribed along with ACE inhibitors.
Diuretics, such as furosemide (Lasix) may also be prescribed in addition to
other medications. Surgery may be needed for those who do not respond to
available medications.

almost lost consciousness," according to the report.
The reporting deputy said he noticed the victim had "pati-
ki eye" in both eyes, as a result of being strangled.
Gwinn was later found hiding in a wooded area east of
13706 24th St., where the two were staying. He was arrest-
ed and booked into the Suwannee County Jail for battery by
strangulation (domestic violence) and child abuse.

Viewpoints/Opinions



Liberals confuse me


Continued From Page 6A

comings of Christine 0'-
Donnell and Dan Quayle?
The answer might be as
simple as just looking at
the colors involved. 0'-
Donnell and Quayle are
white and Johnson and
Obama are black. That
means the white liberal vi-
sion comes into play where
to openly oppose, criticize
and ridicule blacks is
racist. The key term is
openly. I bet that when
alone, in trusted company,
white liberals crack up
over the things that some
black people say and do.
The white liberal vision
holds one set of standards
to which white people are
obliged and another that's
lower for blacks. I don't be-
lieve that white liberals are
racists in the sense that
Klansmen and neo-Nazis
are; however, their pater-
nalistic and demeaning at-
titudes toward blacks are
far more debilitating.
There needs to be a bit of
elaboration of the state-
ment that to openly op-
pose, criticize and ridicule
a black is racist. If the
black in question is a con-
servative, possibly Repub-
lican, then any sort of criti-
cism and treatment is ac-
ceptable. This was seen in
the criticism and ridicule of
Clarence Thomas, Con-
doleezza Rice and Colin
Powell. Garry Trudeau's
"Doonesbury" cartoon fea-
tured President Bush refer-
ring to Secretary Rice as
"brown sugar." Pat
Oliphant showed her as a
parrot with big lips and Ted
Rall's cartoon had Miss
Rice proclaiming herself
Bush's "House nigga." Don
Wright's cartoon depicted


Justice Thomas as Justice
Scalia's lawn jockey. These
cartoons were carried in
major newspapers nation-
wide. Ask yourself what
would happen to a nation-
ally syndicated cartoonist,
and the newspaper that car-
ried it, depicting President
Obama as a wide-eyed, fat-
lipped monkey.
Racial double standards
are nothing new. It has
been the currency on jobs
and college campuses
where there is an accep-
tance of behavior by blacks
that would be condemned
if done by whites. Often
misguided white liberal
professors, in the name of
making up for injustices of
the past, give black stu-
dents grades they didn't
earn. Being 74 years old, I
have frequently told people
that I'm glad that I received
just about all of my educa-
tion before it became fash-
ionable for white people to
like black people. That
means I was obliged to live
up to higher standards.
More blacks need to be
bold and challenge the de-
meaning attitudes of white
liberals. During the early
years of the Reagan admin-
istration, I had a number of
press conferences in re-
sponse to a book or article
that I had written. At sever-
al of them, I invited the re-
porters to treat me like a
white person -- just ask
hard questions.

SECTION 2. FINDINGS. The Board hereby finds and determines as follows:

A. All School Boards in the State of Florida, including this Board, have experienced drastic funding reductions in recent years
while operating expenses continue to rise.

B. In the School District of Suwannee County, currently recognized revenue losses from the 2007-2008 fiscal year to the 2009-
2010 fiscal year are equivalent to a per pupil decrease of more than 5.6 percent in total funding, and a decline of $4.4 million in state revenues,
and additional reductions are anticipated for the 2010-2011 and subsequent fiscal years.

C. As authorized by Section 1011.71(3)(b), Florida Statutes, as amended by Ch. 2009-59, � 33, at 35, Laws of Fla., this Board
determined, by a super majority vote, to levy an additional 0.25 mills for critical operating needs of the District (or "Critical Needs Millage")

D. This Board has also expressed its intent to levy the Critical Needs Millage for the 2010-2011 fiscal year, again endeavoring to
preserve critical operations of the District while enduring declining state revenues.

E. Section 1011.71(3)(b), F.S., as amended during the 2010 Legislative Session (CS/HB 5101) provides that in order to levy such

period not in excess of two years or until changed by another millage election, whichever is earlier.

F. Subject to approval by the electors of the District at a referendum held as provided in Section 1011.71(3)(b), Florida Statutes,
as amended by CS/HB 5101, Reg. Sess. � 30 (Fla. 2010), the School District of Suwannee County, Florida has the authority, by an annual super

Last-minute kick gives Suwannee a 31


-28


By Corey Davis
corey.davis@gaflnews.com
ALACHUA-After back-to-back weeks with its of-
fense struggling, Suwannee picked a good time to come
out of its rut.
Jackson Brown (7-for-13 for 149 yards), who missed
last week's game with a viral infection, nailed a 39-yard
field goal with 1:09 left to give visiting Suwannee a 31-
28 District 2-2A win over the host Santa Fe Raiders.
Brown's heroics were needed after Santa Fe (0-4) tied
the game at 28 all with 4:14 left on a Brandon Willis 5-
yard touchdown run.
Suwannee appeared to put the game away on the first


drive of the fourth quarter when Brown answered a
Willis 17-yard touchdown run for the Raiders, with a 62-
yard touchdown pass to Marlin Lane. Swandrick Miller
was covering Lane on the play and fell down at the 30,
allowing Lane to score easily.
Every time Suwannee scored, Santa Fe would answer.
Derek Smith's 13-yard score on a pitch from Brown
gave the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead on the games first drive.
Santa Fe answered back as Ryan Waters bulldozed in
from 2 yards out three minutes later tying the game. The
key play of the drive was DL Powell's 61-yard pass to
JoJo Hayes and a late hit on Powell, which moved the
ball to the 4 yard line.
Amidst the rain, Santa Fe's special teams did them no


favors as the Raiders committed several costly
turnovers. High snaps and low snaps gave Suwannee
great field position on the night.
A low snap which was fumbled on a punt by the
Raiders gave the Bulldogs the ball at the two. Greg
Swinson's 2-yard run on the next play put the Dogs
ahead 14-7 with 5:20 left till half.
Another low snap on the next drive put Suwannee at
midfield on the final drive of the half. Using timeouts
and the sideline, Suwannee got into position to score af-
ter Brown hit Lane for 21-yards on a screen pass down
to the 14-yard line with 1.5 seconds left.

Gym seeking renovations


Tracie Daniels

LIVE OAK-It is a very excit-
ing time for Suwannee High ath-
letic as a whole. It is currently
football and volleyball season,
but in a variety of sports, Suwan-
nee has brought home recent dis-
trict titles and individuals with
statewide recognition.
Wrestling, soccer and baseball
all had outstanding years in
2009-2010. Similarly, the Suwan-
nee basketball programs in 2009-
2010 had their most successful
year in recent history and expect
to have promising upcoming sea-
son.
This includes the varsity girls,
who were district champions and
Sweet 16 finalists and the varsity
boys, who were district runners-
up and the JV boys (20-2).
Many of the JV boys team will
be moving up to the varsity level
this year and over the summer
achieved third place at a national
competition.
This year will be a very excit-
ing year and we expect good
turnouts for games. Consider also
that our teams have great chances
this year to host post-season play
from neighboring cities.


Other sports that use the gym
for seasonal play include volley-
ball and wrestling. It has been
many years since the gymnasium
has had a makeover. Several im-
provements to the gym are under-
way, including upgrading the
sounds system, installation of
custom wall padding under the
basketball goals (pending spon-
sors) and reassignment of adver-
tising signs along the top of the
gym. For basketball games this
year we also hope to step up
school spirit with several new
surprises which will be revealed
during the season.
We need your help. Again it is
an excellent time to get on board
and show support for the school,
especially considering the econo-
my. Even though it is a tough
time for everyone let's get to-
gether and show the students
what we ca do.
If you currently have a sign in
the gym supporting the program,
please renew your sign, renewals
are $200 for the year.
If you are interested in a new
sign, let us help you design your
graphic and display your new ad-
vertisement for $300. This fee is
set up by the school and is not


negotiable, however if you are
interested but possibly need pay-
ment options we may be able to
work that out with you.
Let's fill up the gym and have
no open spots. When people
come to our gym they should feel
the support that the community
and statewide business have for
them. You can sponsor a sign as
a parent, business or even com-
bine groups to pull together for a
sign.
All signs are the same size, un-
less you want to purchase more
than one spot. The options are
open, we can work with you.
Note that all signs currently pre-
sent are being taken down soon
for cleaning and will not be put
back up unless renewed. The
sooner you respond, the more
people will see your sign as the
year progresses.
Please contact us as soon as
possible to discuss sign renewal
and or new sign purchases and
thank your for your support.
To purchasing signs or renew-
ing old ones, please contact
Suwannee Athletic Director
Hunter Abercrombie or myself on
my cell at 209-1054 (text only)
or at my work at 938-4092.

Football history

still needed


By Corey Davis
I have received several
emails and phone calls
from people sending me
copies of yearbook pages
or information from previ-
ous football seasons.
This is what I mean by
community support, some-
one took the initiative to
send me information.
While doing some re-
search, I found out that
Branford, Suwannee,
Hamilton and Lafayette
High Schools have all
played for state titles in
football.
However you wouldn't
know that, looking around
each of the four stadiums.
That's why I intend to re-
search every season for all
four schools and track their
football history.
I need your help though,
a horrific fire in October of
1995 destroyed years of old
volumes of newspaper
books.
If you or know someone
who has/have old year-
books or newspaper clip-
pings, please feel free to
call me, email me or stop
by and show me old sched-
ules and results.
The idea is by next foot-
ball season, to have every
single schedule and results
from every season from all
four schools.
If you have been to the
Suwannee at Columbia
football game, chances are
you have picked up a pro-
gram sometime. In the
back of the program, Co-
lumbia lists every single
schedule and game results
from every year as well as
the coaches records.


I would like to do this for
all four schools, but I need
the communities of Live
Oak, O'Brien, McAlpin,
Houston, Wellborn, Mayo,
Branford, Jasper, Jennings
and Luraville's help.
Through my research, I
have discovered that
Suwannee's first graduating
class was in 1916. I'm not
sure when Lafayette, Bran-
ford or Hamilton all
opened.
Thanks to the internet, I
have been able to track
down scores for Suwannee
from 1995-2009 and parts
of the 1990's and 1970's.
I'm still missing the fol-
lowing years schedule and
results: 1926-1969, 1972-
1986, 1989, and 1994.
Soon I will be checking
scores from previous news-
papers but again anything
before 1995 I don't have.
All the information I
gather will be available in
each schools football pro-
grams from now on, pro-
viding they don't object to
it.
With 80 years of football
history, Suwannee, Bran-
ford, Hamilton or Lafayette
could well be on their way
to say their 500 or 600 all-
time victory but we will
never know unless I get
help.
Wouldn't you want to
know how Suwannee has
done all-time against Madi-
son County or Columbia,
or how Branford has done
against long time rivals
Bell, Bronson and
Lafayette or how Hamilton
has done against Suwannee
or even perhaps against
Branford and Lafayette.

It's official: Rural league initiative passes


Branford, Hamilton, Lafayette will see playing field leveled


By Corey Davis
corel *i\ ,,1 ., _; .. .', i. n ,. ... ,nU
BRANFORD-Branford
defines rural. It has 355 stu-
dents and is tucked into the
southeast comer of Suwan-
nee County. Acres of farms
line the major highway, US
129, along with livestock
and shaded old oak trees.
An area that couldn't be
farther away from Miami, in
miles or culture, this sleepy
town known more for its
springs than its A-list foot-
ball players just wants to
compete on the same level
athletically as nearby small
towns.
It appears it may have
gotten its wish, as according
to a story in the Pensacola
News Journal 32 teams have
agreed to join the new rural
league sanctioned by the
Florida High School Athlet-
ic Association.
FHSAA Executive Direc-
tor Roger Dearing told the
News Journal on Tuesday
that 33 football-playing
schools that met the rural di-
vision requirements -- in-
cluding Branford, Lafayette
and Hamilton County --
have notified the FHSAA
they will join.
Each classification of any
sport is required to have 32
teams to make the rural di-
vision viable for state cham-
pionship competition,
which means there are more
then enough qualifying
football teams to create the
division.
"I'm very pleased," Dear-
ing told the News Journal.
"One of the things I've tried
to press since I came on is
that we've got 788 member
schools and we've got (rural
schools) that have been say-
ing something about having
to compete against larger
metro area schools that
draw from larger territory."
Now with the required 32
teams, the FHSAA will pro-
ceed with the division at its
Sept. 27 meeting in
Gainesville and begin to
piece the new districts for
the 2011-12 and 2012-13
seasons.
The rural division origi-
nally was originally de-
signed for eight sports: foot-
ball, volleyball, boys and
girls basketball, baseball,
softball and boys and girls
soccer. However, due to the
lack of boys and girls soccer
teams at the rural schools,
Dearing said soccer will not
have a rural division.
The rural division is de-
signed for schools with
roughly 600 students or less,
many from Panhandle
towns that have long felt
slim hope of competing


against private-school pow-
ers in playoff competition.
Because odd numbers
could create logistical prob-
lems, the FHSAA doesn't
plan to add a ninth title
game for football and a sev-
enth playoff bracket for oth-
er sports in the proposal:
boys and girls basketball,
girls volleyball, baseball
and softball. Instead, ap-
proval would mean Class
lB football and 1A in the
other sports disappear."
The latest news comes
from the FHSAA sending
out forms in September to
each school asking if they
were interested in joining
the new league.
Athletic directors met
June 15 in Gainesville at the
FHSAA office to discuss
going forward with the new
league. Area athletic direc-
tors and coaches got their
way, as their athletic pro-
grams will have a easier
path to the state final four.
At the meeting, the FH-
SAA Board of Directors
unanimously voted to create
a new division to provide
additional opportunities for
private and public schools
in rural areas.
"The vote was unani-
mous, sending a great mes-
sage of hearing the concerns
from our small rural
schools, and that the Board
is willing to create an oppor-
tunity for fair and equitable
competition for those
schools that have a limited
student population pool,"
said Dearing. "This was a
vote that helps about 40 to
50 schools, and hurts no
one."
From the Panhandle to
the Suwannee Valley, small
school coaches are sick and
tired of having to deal with
private schools that domi-
nate their sports, despite
having no enrollment
boundaries.
For a number of years,
there has been a growing
concern among public and
private school members of
the FHSAA, regarding the
issues of: attendance bound-
aries, open enrollment, for-
eign student eligibility re-
quirements and guidelines,
and the potential for illegal
recruiting of student-ath-
letes.
Several schools from
Pensacola to Miami, formed
a Urban/Rural committee to
help combat this problem
with the help from the FH-
SAA.
As many as 59 schools
are a part of this including
locally Branford, Hamilton
County, Lafayette and
Melody Christian.

Oklahoma Sooners hold off Cincinnati





for a 31-29 road win


By John Shinn
CNHI News Service
CINCINNATI - Oklahoma
couldn't run the ball, couldn't stop
the run and gave up several deep
passes.
About the only thing the eighth-
ranked Sooners did right Saturday
at Paul Brown Stadium was win.
That was enough.
Oklahoma improved to 4-0, fin-
ishing its non-conference schedule
undefeated, with a 31-29 victory
over Cincinnati.
The Sooners had to hold on. They
nearly let a 15-point lead slip away
and needed a gaffe from the
Bearcats to put the game away.
Oklahoma deep snapper James
Winchester recovered a muffed
fumble by Cincinnati's D.J. Woods
with just under 5 minutes left in the
game. Two plays later, Sooner quar-
terback Landry Jones hit fullback
Trey Millard for a 5-yard touch-
down pass to seal the win.
The Bearcats (1-3) made enough
plays to score what would have
been a huge upset. Isaiah Pead
rushed for 169 yard. Woods had
seven catches for 171 yards.
But turnovers killed them.
Oklahoma safety Jonathan Nel-
son stripped Woods as he was


streaking into the end zone in the
second quarter to prevent a touch-
down. Nelson picked off another
Zach Collaros pass in the end zone.
OU only had one turnover - a
Landry Jones pass swiped by
Cincinnati linebacker J.K. Shafer,
setting up a Collaros touchdown
pass to Woods with 9:45 left in the
game. The score brought the
Bearcats within 2 points, 24-22, and
a crowd of 58,253 believing the
Sooners could fall.
But a huge defensive play turned
the tide. Oklahoma defensive end
Pryce Macon stripped Collaros on a
sack, and Jeremy Beal recovered to
stop a potential game-winning dri-
ve.
Jones threw for 370 yards and
two touchdowns. Running back De-
Marco Murray struggled. His 28
rushing attempts netted just 67
yards.
However, the Sooners managed
to escape their first road game of the
season with a victory. They roll into
next Saturday's Red River Rivalry
with Texas undefeated for just the
second time in the past seven years.
UCLA beat Texas, 34-12, Satur-
day.

man Transcript in Norman, Okla.

son during Saturday's game in Cincinnati. The Sooners won, 31-29.

the annual Quilt and Flower Show and Christmas Open
House."
This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Ward-
law-Smith-Goza Conference Center. In 1860, the his-
toric conference center was built for Benjamin F. Ward-
law, a prominent local citizen. Following the Civil War
Battle of Olustee in February 1864, it served as a Con-
federate hospital. The house, of Greek Revival archi-
tecture, was acquired in 1871 by Chandler Holmes
Smith in whose family it remained for a over a century.
In 1978, Bill and Sue Goza bought the house and re-
stored it to its present condition. The architectural sig-
nificance of the conference center has been recorded by
the Historic American Buildings Survey and it is listed
in the prestigious National Register of Historic Places.


"The Mansion has become a local treasure," said
Greene. "It's full of history and is a beautiful resource
for the community. I invite you to help us celebrate the
Mansion's 150th anniversary by becoming a Friend of
the Mansion member or getting involved with Mansion
events."
The NFCC Foundation also has available WSG 150th
anniversary commemorative glasses embossed with one
of the bas relief designs etched on the Mansion's his-
toric window panes. Each set contains four 12 oz. glass-
es with silver halo rim. Cost is $30 per set.
Help continue the Mansion tradition, begin, renew or
upgrade your Friends of the Mansion membership today

Gainesville artist offers a new perspective on historic landmark


The 29th Annual Down-
town Festival & Art Show
is proud to present this
year's poster artist, Hugo
Cruz. The featured art-
work, "The Clock Tower,"
showcases his use of in-
frared photography to re-
veal new perspectives of
the familiar world around
us. As Hugo attests, "I
fell in love with infrared
photography primarily be-
cause of its ability to ex-
pose the ethereal and in-
visible universe of the in-
frared spectrum. It is
equivalent to having a
new sense ... an enhanced
vision that manifests the
hidden beauty of common
subjects that we may have
taken for granted." His
unconventional artistry
presents a vivid, new take
on Gainesville's down-
town Clock Tower, an
iconic structure that is rich
in history and grace.
"I love Gainesville for
its natural beauty, friendly
residents and cultural
abundance. I have been a
visitor to the Downtown
Festival & Art Show for
nearly 20 years and have
always admired the talent-
ed artists featured in its
posters," he said. "Being
only my second year as an
artist/exhibitor, I am truly
humbled and appreciative
to be part of this honored
history of elite poster
artists. This is truly a
dream come true."
Hugo Cruz, a
Gainesville resident, grad-
uated from the University
of Florida with a bache-


lor's degree in liberal arts.
After graduating, he had a
successful career as a
graphic artist, designer
and publisher, but his pas-
sion was always creating
unique art in different
mediums. As a self-
taught artist with an avid
affinity to learn new tech-
niques, he recently decid-
ed to dedicate himself to
art full time. Cruz's cur-
rent focus is in three dis-
tinct and captivating medi-
ums: infrared photogra-
phy, metal art and acrylic
painting.
Cruz is a respected
member of the Gainesville
art community and has
won several awards and
honors, including having
his infrared photograph of
the Baughman Center fea-
tured on the front cover of
Gainesville's 2010 AT&T
Yellow Pages. He also
won the First Annual
Gainesville Photography
Contest earlier this year.
Cruz's art and event
schedule can be viewed on
his website at
www.HugoCruzGallery.co
m. He also welcomes
visitors to his local studio
and gallery.
The Downtown Festival
& Art Show, held on Sat-
urday, Nov. 6 and Sunday,
Nov. 7, is Gainesville's
most beloved tradition and
a nationally recognized
event. The festival will fill
historic downtown, from
City Hall to the Hippo-

Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars
a person gets in his or her late teenage
years. While many people go on to keep
these teeth, more often than not they are
removed due to misalignment or
impaction.
Poor alignment of wisdom teeth can
crowd an ordinarily healthy mouth. The
teeth may curve in or out, or fail to even
erupt through the gumline. Because any
of these situations can lead to pain or
other dental decay, many individuals
are advised to have wisdom teeth
extracted.
The average adult has 32 teeth. Wisdom
teeth are the last molars in the mouth. A
dentist can determine whether wisdom
teeth are properly aligned through visual
examination and X-ray. If it is
determined that the wisdom teeth are a
detriment, a patient will be referred to an
oral surgeon for a second opinion and
extraction. Removal of these teeth is
generally easier when a person is young,
as the wisdom teeth roots are not fully
developed and the bone is less dense. As
individuals age, recovery time and
discomfort increase.
The extraction process is based entirely
on how bad the wisdom teeth are in the
mouth. Teeth that are fully erupted may
come out quite easily. Those that are
impacted or nestled in the bone may
need to be surgically removed in pieces.
In many cases, wisdom teeth extraction
is done under mild anesthesia. The
process can take 20 to 30 minutes in all.
The surgeon will extract, cut and suture

as needed to produce the best possible
results for healing.
Afterward, bleeding and swelling may
occur. It is essential that a clot form in
the socket of the extracted tooth,
otherwise bacteria and food particles
can become lodged and cause
infection. The condition called dry-
socket occurs when the blood clot is
dislodged, exposing bone and nerve.
This can be quite painful and lengthen
healing time. Therefore, individuals
should avoid smoking, sucking
through straws, spitting heavily, or
doing any other activity that can
disrupt the clot.
Soft foods or even a liquid diet is
recommended for several days until
the pain and soreness subside. Some
surgeons advise rinsing with salt water
or irrigating the surgical site with
warm water to keep the mouth clean.
Antibiotics are often prescribed to
prevent infection.
Because wisdom tooth extraction can
be painful, over-the-counter pain
medications are recommended. The
dentist may prescribe a more potent
pain reliever for use when pain is
greater.
It may take 7 to 10 days for the
incisions and sockets to heal, but it
could be a few months before the
underlying bone has recovered from
the procedure.
SIDEBAR: Wisdom Teeth Dos and
Don'ts
DO address wisdom teeth issues early
on so that they can be extracted at the
earliest possible time and potentially
reduce healing time and pain.
DON'T stick your tongue or finger
into the extraction site, as it may
dislodge the forming clot.
DO alert your surgeon or dentist if you
are not feeling better within 5 days, or
if the pain is increasing.
DON'T stretch the gums or sides of
your mouth to view the surgical site,
otherwise sutures may be torn.
DO follow all of the instructions
provided for post-extraction.
DON'T drink alcohol if you're taking
pain medications.
DO use caution when brushing your
teeth, especially around the
extractions.
DON'T hesitate to call the dentist with
questions.
DO follow up a week later to see if
sutures need to be removed or if the
healing process is going properly.

Dear Classified Guys,
While planning my wedding, I quickly
learned that the guest list wasn't
about whom I wanted to invite. It was
more about my mom shaking the old
family tree and seeing who fell out.
When she asked me to invite her
long-lost rich cousins, I expected the
mystery relatives would at least
bring a nice gift. However, when we
unwrapped the gifts, we found a
shocker. Their gift was a beautiful
crystal punch bowl, but when I
turned it over, I found a bright green
$5 price tag that was obviously from
a yard sale. We paid $125 per
plate, and she gave me a $5 ,
punch bowl. My husband ,
said I should let it go, but fj^
don't you guys think
spending $5 on a wedding gift
from a yard sale is ridiculous?
Cash: Of course spending $5 on a
crystal punchbowl is ridiculous. Your
relatives could have at least haggled it
down to $3!
Carry: Although I can understand
your frustration with your new-found
relatives, it seems you had the wrong
expectations. Regardless of whom
your Mom shook out of the family tree,
you should have been delighted that


CLUSSiM

they attended your wedding.
Anticipating an expensive gift in return
was an error on your part.
Cash: Now I have to agree that leav-
ing the price sticker on the punch bowl
was a major oversight and one that can
be found offensive.
Carry: It seems the problem was not
the fact that your relatives purchased the
gift at a yard sale, but that they actually
got caught. By your own admission, the
crystal bowl was a beautiful gift.
Cash: It's difficult to say whether
etiquette should discourage giving a
wedding gift from a yard sale. There
are many who would say that if the


bowl was still new and in the original
box, the gift is perfectly fine. That is, if
the price sticker is removed first.
Carry: Personally, I wouldn't have a
use for a crystal punch bowl unless it's
to change the oil in my car. Yet other
people may find it to be the perfect
wedding gift.
Cash: As a newlywed, you may
want to reconsider your husband's
advice and let it go. Send your rela-
tives a nice thank you card for attend-
ing the wedding and bringing a gift.
Carry: Besides, if it's like many
wedding gifts, you'll probably try to
sell it at your next yard sale!


Wrapped Up
How much did you spend on the last
wedding gift you bought? Although
the relation of the bride or groom does
play a role in many people's decision,
the average attendee spends $85 on a
wedding present according to The
Association of Bridal Consultants. To
top off the occasion, the association
claims that wedding couples average
about 100 gifts from the ceremony.
Inaddition to hours of unwrapping, that
makes for a lot of handwritten thank-
you cards.
Gift Giver
When is it okay to regift? Some may
respond, "Never!", but according to a
survey commissioned by ebay, 64% of
people admit to regifting, or secretly
giving away unwanted gifts to others.
That means most are not alone in the
process. To avoid any embarrassment,
it's advisable to make sure the item is
actually new and not from a company
that went out of business. If the idea of
regifting makes you uncomfortable,
you can always save all those items for
your next yard sale.
Do you have a question or funny story about the
classified? Want to just give us your opinion?
We want to hear all about it! Email us at:
comments@classifiedguys.com.


Keep Giving
I find all sorts of items at yard
sales, sometimes brand new and
never used.
At the last sale, I came across a
beautiful sterling silver picture frame
and thought it would be a perfect gift
for an upcoming wedding I had to
attend.
When I went to pay for it, the
woman explained that it has been
passed around many times.
"Someone actually regifted it to me
at my wedding," she said.
"That's amazing," I replied. "But
how did you know?"
She laughed as she replied, "They
forgot to change the names on the
gift tag!"
(Thanks to Diedra M.)

Heart of Florida Asian Festival set for Oct. 23-24


GAINESVILLE - The city of
Gainesville will present the Heart of
Florida Asian Festival at the Thomas
Center for the Arts on Saturday, Oct. 23
and Sunday, Oct. 24 from noon to 6
p.m. The festival, which began as China
Fest in 2008, expanded in 2009 to in-


clude all of Asia. Due to the large
crowds in attendance last year, the 2010
festival is expanding to a two-day event,
and will be held on both Saturday and
Sunday. It will feature the rich perform-
ing, visual and culinary arts of the Asian
continent and take place both inside the
A .


historic Thomas Center and in its ad-
joining gardens.
The festival is currently taking appli-
cations for visual artists, performing
artists, food vendors and community
groups that are of Asian heritage or are
Asian themed. The city of Gainesville is


also seeking sponsors and volunteers for
the festival. The Department of Parks,
Recreation and Cultural Affairs invites
all interested participants to contact fes-
tival coordinator David Ballard at bal-
larddg@cityofgainesville.org or by
phone at 352-393-8746.

Jill Cataldo saves hundreds on groceries by making the most

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


Do Cashiers Wage War on Couponers?


SBy
SJill Cataldo


After last week's column on why people might
choose not to use coupons, I received these e-mails
from readers:
"I had a horrifying experience at my local
supermarket last week and found myself crying all
the way home. Cashiers who single out coupon
shoppers for bad treatment are getting more
commonplace. I'm almost ready to stop using
coupons because of the stigma, harassment and
belittlement. I wish someone would tell the media
to stop glamorizing the use of coupons and show
how coupon shoppers are really treated. There have
been times where a cashier commented in front of
my kids that we must be poor and were 'stealing
from the store' because I was using coupons. I have
actually thought about bringing a hidden camera
with me while shopping to let people know that it is

r - - - - ---------------ii
I I I


not always glamorous to use coupons."
And another:
"I was trying to use a $1 coupon for chicken from
my supermarket's flyer. The cashier actually yelled
at me and said I couldn't use the $1 coupon without
saying why. She then said I was a 'stupid newbie to
coupons.' I was so taken aback that I just walked
out of the store without a word or my products. As I
left, she yelled 'Loser! Just walk away and leave me
with a mess of products to clean up!' I stopped
shopping at this store awhile ago because of rude
treatment, but the only reason I even went in was to
buy chicken with the coupon."

I'm always dismayed to hear stories like these. Any
time I tackle cashier issues in my column, I receive
a flood of e-mails from cashiers defending both
themselves and their shoppers. Most cashiers are
good people who do their jobs well, are kind to
their customers and accept coupons using
guidelines outlined by the store.
But, based on many stories shoppers have shared, a
minority of cashiers seems to have declared war on
coupon shoppers. Cashiers who belittle shoppers for
using coupons have no place working in a
customer-service field, in my opinion. Especially
with the state of the economy, even shoppers who
aren't coupon die-hards likely use more coupons
than they have in the past.
If a shopper presents coupons that are acceptable
under the terms of a store's coupon policy, cashiers
should accept them. Period. And, a cashier should
never berate a customer for using coupons.

I've encountered difficult cashiers over the years,
too. Two themes seem to stand out: either the
cashier truly is not aware that the store will be
reimbursed for the coupons, or the cashier is tired of
seeing people coming through their lane and
receiving significant price reductions. I have stood
at the checkout pointing out to a reluctant cashier
the text on a manufacturers coupon that states the
store will be reimbursed for the coupon's value,
watched the cashier brighten and say, "Oh, so this is
just like giving me one dollar cash." It amazes me
when cashiers aren't aware of this, but it happens.
I've also heard many stories (and personally
experienced) cashiers who say that they are "sick of
seeing coupon shoppers coming in and getting good
deals all the time." Whenever this happens, I
usually counter it with a smile and say something
like "Why? Would you rather I take my business to
your competitor?" Or, "Your store is being
reimbursed for every coupon. Are you trying to
discourage me from shopping here?"
The majority of cashiers are not as hostile as the
ones these readers encountered, but sometimes it
does take a thick skin to be a coupon shopper.

According to a recent survey commis-

spending an hour cooking is not so
appealing," said Flay. "I've created some

Dodge's biggest work





truck can drip with luxu


By Derek Price
CNHI News Service
Today's automotive landscape is a weird
place.
Just look at the most popular kinds of
vehicles being introduced as 2011 models.
All are crazy combinations of things not
meant to go together: crossover vehicles
that try to be sports cars, four-door sedans
that look like two-door coupes, and hybrid
cars that can't decide whether they want to
run on gasoline or electricity.
Weirdest of all are heavy-duty trucks
that try to be luxury cars.
It's hard to think of more polar opposites
in transportation than luxury cruisers and
work trucks. Maybe a sports bus or a fly-
ing dump truck could top it.
Somehow, though, all the companies
that make heavy-duty trucks are trying to
do the same thing. Each year they intro-
duce versions of their giant pickups with


fancier cabins and more gadgets, like try-
ing to cross-breed a Lexus and a U-Haul.
And it works.
This week I drove the Ram 3500
Laramie, a truck that tows up to 17,600
pounds and comes with a DVD player,
navigation system and leather seats that
will blow cold air to keep your tush cool.
It's an odd feeling having all that luxury
crammed into a truck so obviously de-
signed for doing dirty jobs.
It has a 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engine
that makes 650 pound-feet of torque,
enough to pull a continental plate. It has a
suspension that feels like it's made of ce-
ment, doors that open wide enough to let
an aircraft in the cabin, and tires that look
like they belong on an earth mover. But it
also has wireless headphones, a satellite
TV connection and a soft dash with stitch-
ing that would look at home in a Jaguar.
The 3500 is Ram's heaviest duty pickup.


It comes with dual rear wheels to give it
that superhero towing capacity, and nor-
mally that would mean the manufacturer
would tack on an ugly, squarish cover to
protect the wide rear wheels. On this truck,
though, Dodge flared the entire length of
the rear fender so the ultra-wide rear tires
would look more integrated with the body.
It's more refined than dualies have looked
in the past.
That same refinement extends to dri-
ving. It still feels like a serious truck --
with a super-bouncy suspension, which is
the worst part of pickups like this -- but it's
also surprisingly quiet once you shut the
door. Dodge did a great job isolating the
cabin from wind and road noise, which
goes a long way toward reinforcing that
luxury feel.
The biggest surprise in this truck is the
sound of the engine. The giant Cummins
diesel idles almost as silently as a gasoline


engine. You hear the clackety-clack of a
diesel when you stomp on the gas pedal,
but at stoplights and cruising speed there's
hardly any engine clatter at all.
One thing that won't surprise you is the
price, as it doesn't come cheap. After all
the options were added to my test truck, it
was edging uncomfortably close to
$60,000, which would buy an extremely
nice BMW or Mercedes.
Then again, people who buy a truck like
this aren't getting it for transportation.
They're using it as a tool to do a job -
probably to make serious money - and
it's the kind of work truck that can tackle
anything most drivers would ever need.

Details remain sketchy, but Hughes, 25, was found dead "early Saturday morning," Cameron said. It was estimated he had been dead about an hour when discovered, according to Cameron. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is handling the investigation. Cameron referred further inquiries to that agency, a spokesperson for which declined comment pending completion of the investigation. Another source said Hughes hanged himself with a bedsheet. Hughes had been jailed on charges of conspiracy to commit armed robbery in connection with the execution-style murder of Joseph Mitello Jr., 57, his wife Nancy Mitello, 68, and their nephew Angelo Rosales, 32, in their 172nd Street McAlpin home. Hughes was a former employee of the Mitellos.BOYS RANCH TO MARK 53RD ANNIVERSARYT h e F lor i d a S h er i ffs Boys R anch w i ll s tag e it s 53rd ann u a l ope n h ouse an d h orse s h ow thi s weeke n d at th e R anch .

The PILTprogram was created by the Florida Legislature to help reduce the fiscal impact to rural counties when District-owned lands are taken off the tax rolls. Since land owned by the District is tax-exempt, PILTfunds offset the loss of tax revenue when the District purchases property for flood control, water quality, water supply and natural resource protection.

A: Unfortunately, nail-biting is more than an unsightly habit. The habit can leave more than stunted fingernails. It can lead to problems with the temporomandibular joints, the joints in front of the ears where the jaw bones meet, also known as the TMJs. Any activity, like nail-biting, that involves holding the teeth in an unnatural position for extended periods increases the possibility of injury to the TMJ. Over a long period, the unnatural position of the jaws involved in nail-biting will stretch the muscles in the jaw, causing pain and throwing off the balance of the TMJs. If a very young child begins the habit, it can contribute to a gap developing between the front two teeth. Also, the type of person who is prone to nail and finger biting, may also be prone to picking at their gums. Some dentists and physicians recommend putting a non-toxic, unpleasant tasting lotion on the fingers. Others believe putting a bandage on a finger could serve as a reminder and deterrent. If you have a nailbiter in your house or you are yourself a nail-biter, talk with yoru dentist about ways to break the habit. Presented as a service to the community by 571101-F ASK DR.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2010 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 6A By Jim Holmes Our public school superintendent, Jerry Scarborough, seems like a plain speaking man. That's good and believe me, you don't always find that among elected officials. Many are apparently happy to tell you what you want to hear, rather than what you need to hear. Scarborough doesn't seem to work that way. In fact, at a recent meeting I attended, he told his audience something that stunned me. And I don't think that I was the only one in the room to have that reaction. Our superintendent says that 40 percent of our county's five-year-old children enter kindergarten without the basic skills they need to even begin the learning process É yet succeed at it. FORTY-PERCENT! We are speaking about children who -due to no fault of their own -are unable to name their colors or tell the difference between a square and a circle. Youngsters who have no concept of what is different and what is the same. Children who are incapable of determining that the letter Aisn't the letter Z or that the numbers 1 and 5 are anything more than scribbles on a piece of paper. I did some research for this column and discovered we are talking about abilities so elementary that chimpanzees are able to learn them. Yet, we in this community are apparently willing to allow nearly half of our five-year olds to start their formal education without having mastered those same basic skills. Something is very wrong with that picture. And as a result of our shortcomings, that cute little tyke's future may be in jeopardy the very first day of school, for this is the type of child who is more likely to become a classroom disciplinary problem or a school yard bully. That's not because these kids are born evil. It is because they can quickly learn to feel like "losers" and in response strike out in anger and frustration. By the teen years, such children may well become truants, unwed mothers and/or dropouts É meaning a potential life-time of persistent unemployment and a significantly higher probability of imprisonment. Now, not every child who begins school lagging behind will fail in life, but by starting out in arrears, he or she is less likely to reach their full academic potential. In addition, those unfortunate kids who do end-up failures will -in one way or another -impact each of us who pay taxes in this county. Our school superintendent will be the first to tell you that he doesn't have any magic solution to this problem. None exists. But like alcoholism, the first step to recovery is simply for our community, as a whole, to admit that we have a major problem É followed by a sincere county-wide willingness to do something about it. To start with, tough questions need to be asked of our daycares, our Head Start Programs, our Pre-K Programs, our high school parenting classes and ourselves. And neither our superintendent nor our school board should be expected to be the only ones addressing this dilemma. In addition to school advisory committees and PTAs, it would seem the business community and its chamber of commerce should be directly involved, as well as our churches, and civic organizationsÉall working together in a unified effort, such as a community-wide task force. The fact that 40 percent of our children and grandchildren are starting school at such an academic disadvantage is nothing short of shameful. But let's be clear about it. That shame is not theirs. It is ours! Jim Holmes lives in Live Oak.

Matthew 6:33 Christine O'Donnell, U.S. Senate candidate from Delaware, has faced considerable criticism and news media attention about her youthful association with witchcraft. Have we seen similar news media attention given to other politicians who have made bizarre remarks that border on gross stupidity -possibly lunacy? During a congressional Armed Services hearing in March, Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., expressed concern that stationing 8,000 Marines and their equipment on Guam, our Pacific territory, could cause the island "to become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize." Such a remark is grossly stupid but the liberal press didn't give it anywhere near the amount of attention and derision that they gave Christine O'Donnell. On the campaign trail in March 2008, then-presidential candidate Obama told his Beaverton, Ore., audience, "Over the last 15 months, we've traveled to every corner of the United States. I've now been in 57 states? I think one left to go." Whether Obama misspoke or not, that's a grossly stupid remark, but white liberals among the intellectual elite and the liberal news media all but ignored it. Of course, when former Vice President Dan Quayle misspelled "potatoe," they pounced upon it and had a field day. So what might explain the liberals giving Hank Johnson and Obama a pass whilst playing up the perceived short-OPINION A MINORITY VIEWBY WALTER WILLIAMS© 2010 Creators Syndicate~~ Liberals confuse me FROM OUR READERS To the Editor: I just read the Mayor's Corner in the 09/24/10 edition of the Democrat . Wow! First and foremost, code enforcement has not effectively been done away with in the City. What did happen is that the City seized an opportunity to consolidate the code enforcement responsibilities with those of the building inspector. Perhaps others in the community have noticed that there is not much building occurring inside the City of Live Oak right now. This was a fiscally responsible move that will not set back the city. If there truly have been some code enforcement issues this week as the Mayor suggests, then the Mayor should have contacted Roy Rogers, the building official, to resolve them. There is no excuse for them not be handled as it was made very clear in the meeting who now has that responsibility. To say there is no one to fulfill the role of code enforcement officer is a gross understatement. In regards to the commercial sewer increase, the Mayor did make a proposal to lessen the blow to commercial customers but it is not sustainable. The only reason there is extra money available in the "garbage fund" is because last year service was cut in half and the rates remained the same. Ultimately, any savings you receive through the Mayor's proposal you already prepaid. I have opposed this budget from the first consensus taken at a budget workshop. I have proposed how to eliminate the rate increase altogether with little or no support. It is simple. The City must make a loan payment this year in the amount of $100,000. Let's take the $51,000 in raises out of the budget, combine it with the $32,000 freed up in the code enforcement budget, reduce all salaried people a percentage equal to the remaining $17,000 and leave our utility rates alone. Government should have to cut government when commercial customers and homeowners are having to cut back at their homes and places of business. YOU CANNOTRAISE RATES AND GIVE RAISES! Lastly, if the worst decision the Mayor has seen in 34 years at City Hall is the consolidation of two positions in an economic recession to save the taxpayers money, then he does not see what I see. If you have a concern or suggestion in the City, please do not hesitate to contact me at (386) 590-5224. Thank you! Sincerely, Adam M.

My name is David Poole.I am one of the three deputies that was at the Fort White football game. Please allow me to explain and maybethe person who wrote the comment will not be so angry.I have a daughter in theSHS band. This is my fourth year as a band parent.As a band parentI sometimesgo with the band as a helper/chaperone/security/deputy. The timeI spend helping the band is on my own time.I do not get paid by anyone for the timeI spend with the band.Isometimes wear my uniform because in the past, the band boosters asked me to and the Sheriff approved it. One of the other deputies at this football game is a reserve deputy. He was not being paid to be there either. He hasvolunteered for several years assisting with football games, basketball games, funerals, parades, county fair, etc. The third deputy was there because he is the school resource officer assigned to the high school. I hope this explanation helps this person feel better. Most organizations need volunteers to be able to function adequately. May we all work together in keeping our children safe.

By Cindi Hiers 3D Art Instructor Suwannee High School “Pinwheels for Peace” were on display for all to see and enjoy recently in the Suwannee High courtyard. Pinwheels for Peace is an art installation project started in 2005 by two art teachers from Florida. Ann Ayers and Ellen McMillan, of Coconut Creek, found a way for students to express their feelings about what’s going on in the world and in their lives. In the first year, groups in over 1,325 locations throughout the world were spinning pinwheels on Sept. 21. There were approximately 500,000 pinwheels spinning throughout the world. Last year (year four) over 2.3 million pinwheels were spinning in over 3,000 locations, including the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada, the Middle East, African and South America. Locally, Suwannee High School will be coordinating the Pinwheels for Peace project this year. This project is non-political -peace doesn’t necessarily have to be associated with the conflict of war, it can be related to violence/intolerance in our daily lives, to peace of mind. To each of us peace can take on a different meaning, but, in the end it all comes down to a simple definition: “a state of calm and serenity, with no anxiety, the absence of violence, freedom from conflict or disagreement among people or groups of people.” SHS has made their pinwheels as part of the creating process. Students wrote their thoughts on peace, created images that corresponded to those thoughts on one side, and on the flip side used solid color(s) to project a peaceful feeling. The assembled works were placed in a shoe, symbolizing a wish moving in a forward direction, then “planted” them for all to enjoy. The pieces are now on view in the SHS Library.

Painting it is the least expensive way and the best for versatility with so many colors to choose from. First, make sure it is clean and prepared propery, then you can use any exterior paint that is recommended for use on concrete. You can get creative and paint a pattern in it using a sponge technique or paint faux bricks on it, the list goes on and on, or you may choose to paint it a solid color. Afterwards make sure to use a good clear sealer on it. Come and see us here at Live Oak Paint & Flooring and we can help you choose and tell you how to prepare your cement floor. I have a cement patio that is a dull gray color. Now that the cooler months are on their way, we will be spending a lot more time out there and I would like to spruce it up a bit.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2010 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 9A Submitted 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 "AChance 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 chancefor 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.Aroute map will be provided for the three-mile course.Food will be provided and the local group "Fifth and Baya" will perform.

Pharmacy & Your Health 617197-F Management of Cardiac DCM A cardiomyopathy is a health problem related to the heart muscle. There are several different types of cardiomyopathy; dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is one such type. This condition is an abnormality in the contraction of the heart ventricles, and dilation of the heart. Persons with DCM have systolic dysfunction, which results in a reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). A diagnosis of DCM may include a LVEF of less than 40 percent. Persons between the ages of 20 and 60 years are primarily affected by the condition; however, persons of any age may be diagnosed with DCM. Symptoms include difficulty breathing while exercising, difficulty breathing at night, and swelling. Persons who are diagnosed with DCM may be prescribed medications based on symptoms and whether other conditions are present. Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, such as ramipril ( Altace ) and lisinopril ( Zestril, Prinivil ) may be prescribed. Beta-blockers, such as propranolol ( Inderal) , may be prescribed along with ACE inhibitors. Diuretics, such as furosemide ( Lasix ) may also be prescribed in addition to other medications. Surgery may be needed for those who do not respond to available medications. by Randy Johns, Pharm D Drive-up window Model Name and Comfort Level Queen set$000 REG.

According to engineer, Douglas Hutchins, Jacksonville, the train was eastbound when he spotted a person lying on the tracks between the rails near the crossing at Eva Avenue. The engineer activated the emergency braking system but the pedestrian was struck and killed. According to LOPD Chief Buddy Williams, the train was going about 30 m.p.h. when Cooks was hit. Cooks'body was sent to the Jacksonville Medical Examiner's Office to determine what may have caused him to be lying on the tracks. When questioned about the examiner's findings, Williams said, "we simply don't know, but we want to check toxicity and all the possibilities before we can comment further."Man lying on tracks struck, killed by trainContinued From Page 1ATwo jailed on drug charges in Suwanneement of$15,208. PILTrequired the District to pay taxes on public lands for a 10-year period. But with the recent passage of legislation counties will now receive PILTfunds until their populations reach 150,000. "This means the majority of our counties will see an increase in PILTrevenue this year because taxes will be reinstated for property that had previously fallen off the tax rolls due to the 10-year cap," said District Assistant Executive Director Charlie Houder. "This will result in more revenue to support our small counties." Collectively, 11 counties within the District will receive a total of $326,314 in PILTfunding this year in comparison to the $177,012 they received last year. The following are totals for each county: áBradford: $15,093.45 áColumbia: $23,183.09 (tentative) áDixie: $24,196.21 áGilchrist: $43,990.32 áHamilton: $38,351.28 á Jefferson: $9,223.41 áLafayette: $77,306.21 áLevy: $25,108.88 áMadison: $20,464.85 áSuwannee: $30,429.59 áTaylor: $18,967.43 District officials will distribute PILTpayments to the county commissions from now through the end of October.Suwannee to get $30K from SRWMDContinued From Page 1A agement classes. Wesley Wainwright, the BOCC's chairman and District 5 representative, criticized Conner in late August due to Conner's handling of employees. At least one grievance has been filed against Conner, by a former employee who is contesting his firing. "I've always taken classes to enrich myself," said Conner. "But if I said (losing support from the chairman) didn't have anything to do with taking the class, I would be lying." Conner said he has taken Wainwright's criticism to heart. "I felt like it was a gift and it's all according to what kind of person you are as how to receive it," Conner said Tuesday. "He said I should change my character, my style and that's what I intend on doing."Conner taking management classesContinued From Page 1A Two other suspects in the case, James Lindsey Howze, 38, and Lonnie Robert Munn, 47, remain jailed on charges including three counts each of first-degree murder. Agrand jury returned formal indictments against the pair Tuesday (See story Page 14A). Hughes had also been scheduled to appear before the panel. Third Circuit State Attorney Skip Jarvis declined to comment on whether his death would affect the case against Howze and Munn. Hughes was arrested Aug. 27, two days after the murders. He had been released from prison in April 2009 after serving a three-year sentence for arson, burglary, aggravated assault and possession of a gun by a convicted felon, crimes committed in Suwannee County in 2006.Man tied to murders kills selfContinued From Page 1A In August 2009, Stage Stores Inc. purchased the intellectual properties of Goody's when the retailer filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and liquidated the remainder of its stores, Bell explained. The Stage company, which owns trademarks for Peebles, Bealls, Palais Royal, and other stores, took possession of the Goody's name and has returned the retailer to regions where many of its stores once existed. "With the opening of Goody's, customers will see some of the same product lines as Peebles, such as Levi's and Nike's," Bell said, "but because of our branding model there will be changes in various other product lines." She said customers can expect brands such as Izod, Chaps, Sketchers, U.S. Polo Association, and more to be sold at the Goody's store. The change isn't expected to have a major affect on current personnel and staff, said Bell. In fact, the transition is expected to be somewhat seamless, said Patricia Christie, manager at Peebles. "As far as I know, we're basically closing as Peebles and reopening as Goody's at the end of October," she said.Peebles will close, reopen as Goody'sContinued From Page 1A Conner admitted that he could have handled some situations better. "I have a tendency to play a lot, to tease and cuss," he said, "but that's usually the style of fire and rescue stations all over." He continued, "I've done some things wrong. I've talked to people in the heat of the moment in ways that maybe I shouldn't have. I've taken this opportunity to watch my mouth. The difference between me and someone else in my position is that I admit my mistakes and my faults." Conner said he also apologized to the city of Live Oak's fire chief for a conversation the two had on the phone in August. LOFD Chief Chad Croft wrote a letter to Live Oak city officials saying he had called Conner to discuss one of Conner's employees having asked Croft for advice on a work-related matter. Croft said when he told Conner that he was asked by the employee to help him but that Conner told him not to "interfere with county fire codes" and to stay out of county business. Conner said that he "was probably pretty short with him" but later apologized by phone. By Carnell Hawthorne Jr. Two men were recently booked into the Suwannee County Jail on drug-related charges in separate, unrelated cases. Steven Edward Staats, 46, of 1415 Pine Avenue, Live Oak, was booked into jail Sept. 22 charged with trafficking hydrocodone, possession of the prescription drug Darvocet with the intent to sell, the sale of Darvocet within 1,000 feet of a church and the unlawful use of a two-way communication device. According to a probable cause affidavit, Staats sold 8.9 grams of hydrocodone to a confidential informant back on November 30, 2009. The transaction, which was audio and video recorded by authorities, reportedly took place within 1,000 feet of a school. Information regarding Staats'additional charges was not included in the mentioned affidavit. On Sept. 21, Edward Lee Riley, 56, of 504 Clay St., Live Oak, was arrested and charged with possession of crack cocaine after an officer watched him travel through a dark intersection on a bike with no operable lights east on Hamilton Avenue. Officer Derek F. SlaughSteven Edward Staats Edward Lee Riley ter approached and stopped Riley on Georgia Avenue. "Upon contact with the rider he seemed nervous," Slaughter wrote in his report. "Riley's hands were visibly shaking as he handed me his Florida identification card. (He) kept putting his hands in his pockets, although I told him not to several times." As Slaughter was checking Riley's information, the 56-year-old then asked if he could take a seat. "Approximately 30 seconds later, Riley asked to stand back up and if I wanted to search him," Slaughter wrote. When Riley picked his left hand off the ground, the officer observed a large piece of crack cocaine where Riley's hand had been. Slaughter recovered the illegal substance, placed Riley under arrest, and transported him to the Suwannee County Jail.

The answer might be as simple as just looking at the colors involved. O'Donnell and Quayle are white and Johnson and Obama are black. That means the white liberal vision comes into play where to openly oppose, criticize and ridicule blacks is racist. The key term is openly. I bet that when alone, in trusted company, white liberals crack up over the things that some black people say and do. The white liberal vision holds one set of standards to which white people are obliged and another that's lower for blacks. I don't believe that white liberals are racists in the sense that Klansmen and neo-Nazis are; however, their paternalistic and demeaning attitudes toward blacks are far more debilitating. There needs to be a bit of elaboration of the statement that to openly oppose, criticize and ridicule a black is racist. If the black in question is a conservative, possibly Republican, then any sort of criticism and treatment is acceptable. This was seen in the criticism and ridicule of Clarence Thomas, Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell. Garry Trudeau's "Doonesbury" cartoon featured President Bush referring to Secretary Rice as "brown sugar." Pat Oliphant showed her as a parrot with big lips and Ted Rall's cartoon had Miss Rice proclaiming herself Bush's "House nigga." Don Wright's cartoon depicted Justice Thomas as Justice Scalia's lawn jockey. These cartoons were carried in major newspapers nationwide. Ask yourself what would happen to a nationally syndicated cartoonist, and the newspaper that carried it, depicting President Obama as a wide-eyed, fatlipped monkey. Racial double standards are nothing new. It has been the currency on jobs and college campuses where there is an acceptance of behavior by blacks that would be condemned if done by whites. Often misguided white liberal professors, in the name of making up for injustices of the past, give black students grades they didn't earn. Being 74 years old, I have frequently told people that I'm glad that I received just about all of my education before it became fashionable for white people to like black people. That means I was obliged to live up to higher standards. More blacks need to be bold and challenge the demeaning attitudes of white liberals. During the early years of the Reagan administration, I had a number of press conferences in response to a book or article that I had written. At several of them, I invited the reporters to treat me like a white person -just ask hard questions. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University.

Section BWednesday, September 29, 2010Suwannee Democrat By Corey Daviscorey.davis@gaflnews.comALACHUA-After back-to-back weeks with its offense struggling, Suwannee picked a good time to come out of its rut. Jackson Brown (7-for-13 for 149 yards), who missed last week's game with a viral infection, nailed a 39-yard field goal with 1:09 left to give visiting Suwannee a 3128 District 2-2Awin over the host Santa Fe Raiders. Brown's heroics were needed after Santa Fe (0-4) tied the game at 28 all with 4:14 left on a Brandon Willis 5yard touchdown run. Suwannee appeared to put the game away on the first drive of the fourth quarter when Brown answered a Willis 17-yard touchdown run for the Raiders, with a 62yard touchdown pass to Marlin Lane. Swandrick Miller was covering Lane on the play and fell down at the 30, allowing Lane to score easily. Every time Suwannee scored, Santa Fe would answer. Derek Smith's 13-yard score on a pitch from Brown gave the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead on the games first drive. Santa Fe answered back as Ryan Waters bulldozed in from 2 yards out three minutes later tying the game. The key play of the drive was DLPowell's 61-yard pass to JoJo Hayes and a late hit on Powell, which moved the ball to the 4 yard line. Amidst the rain, Santa Fe's special teams did them no favors as the Raiders committed several costly turnovers. High snaps and low snaps gave Suwannee great field position on the night. Alow snap which was fumbled on a punt by the Raiders gave the Bulldogs the ball at the two. Greg Swinson's 2-yard run on the next play put the Dogs ahead 14-7 with 5:20 left till half. Another low snap on the next drive put Suwannee at midfield on the final drive of the half. Using timeouts and the sideline, Suwannee got into position to score after Brown hit Lane for 21-yards on a screen pass down to the 14-yard line with 1.5 seconds left.Nail-biterSuwannee31 Santa Fe28 Branford36 Maclay26 Lafayette42 Aucilla6 Bell18 Bronson8 Dixie 34 Trenton 28 Taylor 16 Bradford 14 Williston 26 Keystone 13 Trinity Catholic 52 Newberry 13 Lincoln 21 Rickards 0 Madison 49 Leon 26 Niceville 7 Godby 0 Ribault 41 Baker 34 Raines 41 Baldwin7 NFC 56 B. Synder 23 Sept. 24Scoreboard By Corey Daviscorey.davis@gaflnews.comTALLAHASSEE-Kendrick Prevatt rushed for three touchdowns, two in the first half, to lead visiting Branford to a 36-26 win over host Tallahassee Maclay Friday night. Apair of 18-yard touchdown runs by Prevatt in the second quarter gave the Bucs some breathing room with a 22-0 lead. Kyle Stebbins gave the Bucs an early 8-0 lead on an 8-yard score in the first quarter. After a 65-yard touchdown pass from Taylor Scott to Lee Williams cut the lead to 22-7, Robert Morris answered with an 11-yard run and two-point conversion run to up the lead to 29-7. Scott hooked up with Trip Transou for a 48-yard touchdown pass, cutting the lead to 29-14 in the third quarter. Prevatt scored his third touchdown on the night on a 7-yard run to put the game away at 36-14 in the fourth. Maclay (0-4) made it look respectable, scoring twice in the final quarter on Lee Williams'30yard run and Scott's third touchdown pass of the night to Transou from 60 yards to close out the scoring. For the third consecutive week, Branford (2-2) will hit the road, this time traveling to Jacksonville Friday to play Paxon.Bucs handle their business SEENAIL-BITER, PAGE6BLast-minute kick gives Suwannee a 31-28 winSuwannee's Jackson Brown kicks the game-winning field goal against Alachua Friday night.

It is currently football and volleyball season, but in a variety of sports, Suwannee has brought home recent district titles and individuals with statewide recognition. Wrestling, soccer and baseball all had outstanding years in 2009-2010. Similarly, the Suwannee basketball programs in 20092010 had their most successful year in recent history and expect to have promising upcoming season. This includes the varsity girls, who were district champions and Sweet 16 finalists and the varsity boys, who were district runnersup and the JV boys (20-2). Many of the JV boys team will be moving up to the varsity level this year and over the summer achieved third place at a national competition. This year will be a very exciting year and we expect good turnouts for games. Consider also that our teams have great chances this year to host post-season play from neighboring cities. Other sports that use the gym for seasonal play include volleyball and wrestling. It has been many years since the gymnasium has had a makeover. Several improvements to the gym are underway, including upgrading the sounds system, installation of custom wall padding under the basketball goals (pending sponsors) and reassignment of advertising signs along the top of the gym. For basketball games this year we also hope to step up school spirit with several new surprises which will be revealed during the season. We need your help. Again it is an excellent time to get on board and show support for the school, especially considering the economy. Even though it is a tough time for everyone let’s get together and show the students what we ca do. If you currently have a sign in the gym supporting the program, please renew your sign, renewals are $200 for the year. If you are interested in a new sign, let us help you design your graphic and display your new advertisement for $300. This fee is set up by the school and is not negotiable, however if you are interested but possibly need payment options we may be able to work that out with you. Let’s fill up the gym and have no open spots. When people come to our gym they should feel the support that the community and statewide business have for them. You can sponsor a sign as a parent, business or even combine groups to pull together for a sign. All signs are the same size, unless you want to purchase more than one spot. The options are open, we can work with you. Note that all signs currently present are being taken down soon for cleaning and will not be put back up unless renewed. The sooner you respond, the more people will see your sign as the year progresses. Please contact us as soon as possible to discuss sign renewal and or new sign purchases and thank your for your support. To purchasing signs or renewing old ones, please contact Suwannee Athletic Director Hunter Abercrombie or myself on my cell at 209-1054 (text only) or at my work at 938-4092.Gym seeking renovationsBy Corey Davis I have received several emails and phone calls from people sending me copies of yearbook pages or information from previous football seasons. This is what I mean by community support, someone took the initiative to send me information. While doing some research, I found out that Branford, Suwannee, Hamilton and Lafayette High Schools have all played for state titles in football. However you wouldn't know that, looking around each of the four stadiums. That's why I intend to research every season for all four schools and track their football history. I need your help though, a horrific fire in October of 1995 destroyed years of old volumes of newspaper books. If you or know someone who has/have old yearbooks or newspaper clippings, please feel free to call me, email me or stop by and show me old schedules and results. The idea is by next football season, to have every single schedule and results from every season from all four schools. If you have been to the Suwannee at Columbia football game, chances are you have picked up a program sometime. In the back of the program, Columbia lists every single schedule and game results from every year as well as the coaches records. I would like to do this for all four schools, but I need the communities of Live Oak, O'Brien, McAlpin, Houston, Wellborn, Mayo, Branford, Jasper, Jennings and Luraville's help. Through my research, I have discovered that Suwannee's first graduating class was in 1916. I'm not sure when Lafayette, Branford or Hamilton all opened. Thanks to the internet, I have been able to track down scores for Suwannee from 1995-2009 and parts of the 1990’s and 1970’s. I’m still missing the following years schedule and results: 1926-1969, 19721986, 1989, and 1994. Soon I will be checking scores from previous newspapers but again anything before 1995 I don't have. All the information I gather will be available in each schools football programs from now on, providing they don't object to it. With 80 years of football history, Suwannee, Branford, Hamilton or Lafayette could well be on their way to say their 500 or 600 alltime victory but we will never know unless I get help. Wouldn't you want to know how Suwannee has done all-time against Madison County or Columbia, or how Branford has done against long time rivals Bell, Bronson and Lafayette or how Hamilton has done against Suwannee or even perhaps against Branford and Lafayette. Football history still needed

It has 355 students and is tucked into the southeast corner of Suwannee County. Acres of farms line the major highway, US 129, along with livestock and shaded old oak trees. An area that couldn’t be farther away from Miami, in miles or culture, this sleepy town known more for its springs than its A-list football players just wants to compete on the same level athletically as nearby small towns. It appears it may have gotten its wish, as according to a story in the Pensacola News Journal 32 teams have agreed to join the new rural league sanctioned by the Florida High School Athletic Association. FHSAA Executive Director Roger Dearing told the News Journal on Tuesday that 33 football-playing schools that met the rural division requirements -including Branford, Lafayette and Hamilton County -have notified the FHSAA they will join. Each classification of any sport is required to have 32 teams to make the rural division viable for state championship competition, which means there are more then enough qualifying football teams to create the division. “I’m very pleased,” Dearing told the News Journal. “One of the things I’ve tried to press since I came on is that we’ve got 788 member schools and we’ve got (rural schools) that have been saying something about having to compete against larger metro area schools that draw from larger territory.” Now with the required 32 teams, the FHSAA will proceed with the division at its Sept. 27 meeting in Gainesville and begin to piece the new districts for the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons. The rural division originally was originally designed for eight sports: football, volleyball, boys and girls basketball, baseball, softball and boys and girls soccer. However, due to the lack of boys and girls soccer teams at the rural schools, Dearing said soccer will not have a rural division. The rural division is designed for schools with roughly 600 students or less, many from Panhandle towns that have long felt slim hope of competing against private-school powers in playoff competition. Because odd numbers could create logistical problems, the FHSAA doesn't plan to add a ninth title game for football and a seventh playoff bracket for other sports in the proposal: boys and girls basketball, girls volleyball, baseball and softball. Instead, approval would mean Class 1B football and 1A in the other sports disappear.” The latest news comes from the FHSAA sending out forms in September to each school asking if they were interested in joining the new league. Athletic directors met June 15 in Gainesville at the FHSAA office to discuss going forward with the new league. Area athletic directors and coaches got their way, as their athletic programs will have a easier path to the state final four. At the meeting, the FHSAA Board of Directors unanimously voted to create a new division to provide additional opportunities for private and public schools in rural areas. "The vote was unanimous, sending a great message of hearing the concerns from our small rural schools, and that the Board is willing to create an opportunity for fair and equitable competition for those schools that have a limited student population pool," said Dearing. "This was a vote that helps about 40 to 50 schools, and hurts no one." From the Panhandle to the Suwannee Valley, small school coaches are sick and tired of having to deal with private schools that dominate their sports, despite having no enrollment boundaries. For a number of years, there has been a growing concern among public and private school members of the FHSAA, regarding the issues of: attendance boundaries, open enrollment, foreign student eligibility requirements and guidelines, and the potential for illegal recruiting of student-athletes. Several schools from Pensacola to Miami, formed a Urban/Rural committee to help combat this problem with the help from the FHSAA. As many as 59 schools are a part of this including locally Branford, Hamilton County, Lafayette and Melody Christian. It’s official: Rural league initiative passes Branford, Hamilton, Lafayette will see playing field leveledBranford coach Bill Wiles has been a proponent of the new rural league forming.-Photo: Corey Davis

If the right Native plants are chosen they are drought tolerant so they save water and they will thrive in our hot humid 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 native plants and would just like to meet others with the same passion? Or would you like to get involved helping those in the community around you understand the importance of preserving all our wonderful native plants?

Dated: August 4, 2010. Barry A. Baker As Clerk of the Court BY: Sharon Hale As Deputy Clerk 9/22, 29 By John Shinn CNHI News Service CINCINNATI — Oklahoma couldn't run the ball, couldn't stop the run and gave up several deep passes. About the only thing the eighthranked Sooners did right Saturday at Paul Brown Stadium was win. That was enough. Oklahoma improved to 4-0, finishing its non-conference schedule undefeated, with a 31-29 victory over Cincinnati. The Sooners had to hold on. They nearly let a 15-point lead slip away and needed a gaffe from the Bearcats to put the game away. Oklahoma deep snapper James Winchester recovered a muffed fumble by Cincinnati's D.J. Woods with just under 5 minutes left in the game. Two plays later, Sooner quarterback Landry Jones hit fullback Trey Millard for a 5-yard touchdown pass to seal the win. The Bearcats (1-3) made enough plays to score what would have been a huge upset. Isaiah Pead rushed for 169 yard. Woods had seven catches for 171 yards. But turnovers killed them. Oklahoma safety Jonathan Nelson stripped Woods as he was streaking into the end zone in the second quarter to prevent a touchdown. Nelson picked off another Zach Collaros pass in the end zone. OU only had one turnover — a Landry Jones pass swiped by Cincinnati linebacker J.K. Shafer, setting up a Collaros touchdown pass to Woods with 9:45 left in the game. The score brought the Bearcats within 2 points, 24-22, and a crowd of 58,253 believing the Sooners could fall. But a huge defensive play turned the tide. Oklahoma defensive end Pryce Macon stripped Collaros on a sack, and Jeremy Beal recovered to stop a potential game-winning drive. Jones threw for 370 yards and two touchdowns. Running back DeMarco Murray struggled. His 28 rushing attempts netted just 67 yards. However, the Sooners managed to escape their first road game of the season with a victory. They roll into next Saturday's Red River Rivalry with Texas undefeated for just the second time in the past seven years. UCLA beat Texas, 34-12, Saturday.

In 1978, Bill and Sue Goza bought the house and restored it to its present condition. The architectural significance of the conference center has been recorded by the Historic American Buildings Survey and it is listed in the prestigious National Register of Historic Places.

SEPTEMBER 29 & 30, 2010 , PAGE 3CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE WWW.NFLAONLINE.COM SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA To place an ad on this page, please call Nancy at 386-362-1734 Ext. 103 Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars a person gets in his or her late teenage years. While many people go on to keep these teeth, more often than not they are removed due to misalignment or impaction. Poor alignment of wisdom teeth can crowd an ordinarily healthy mouth. The teeth may curve in or out, or fail to even erupt through the gumline. Because any of these situations can lead to pain or other dental decay, many individuals are advised to have wisdom teeth extracted. The average adult has 32 teeth. Wisdom teeth are the last molars in the mouth. A dentist can determine whether wisdom teeth are properly aligned through visual examination and X-ray. If it is determined that the wisdom teeth are a detriment, a patient will be referred to an oral surgeon for a second opinion and extraction. Removal of these teeth is generally easier when a person is young, as the wisdom teeth roots are not fully developed and the bone is less dense. As individuals age, recovery time and discomfort increase. The extraction process is based entirely on how bad the wisdom teeth are in the mouth. Teeth that are fully erupted may come out quite easily. Those that are impacted or nestled in the bone may need to be surgically removed in pieces. In many cases, wisdom teeth extraction is done under mild anesthesia. The process can take 20 to 30 minutes in all. The surgeon will extract, cut and suture as needed to produce the best possible results for healing. Afterward, bleeding and swelling may occur. It is essential that a clot form in the socket of the extracted tooth, otherwise bacteria and food particles can become lodged and cause infection. The condition called drysocket occurs when the blood clot is dislodged, exposing bone and nerve. This can be quite painful and lengthen healing time. Therefore, individuals should avoid smoking, sucking through straws, spitting heavily, or doing any other activity that can disrupt the clot. Soft foods or even a liquid diet is recommended for several days until the pain and soreness subside. Some surgeons advise rinsing with salt water or irrigating the surgical site with warm water to keep the mouth clean. Antibiotics are often prescribed to prevent infection. Because wisdom tooth extraction can be painful, over-the-counter pain medications are recommended. The dentist may prescribe a more potent pain reliever for use when pain is greater. It may take 7 to 10 days for the incisions and sockets to heal, but it could be a few months before the underlying bone has recovered from the procedure. SIDEBAR: Wisdom Teeth Dos and Donts DO address wisdom teeth issues early on so that they can be extracted at the earliest possible time and potentially reduce healing time and pain. DONT stick your tongue or finger into the extraction site, as it may dislodge the forming clot. DO alert your surgeon or dentist if you are not feeling better within 5 days, or if the pain is increasing. DONT stretch the gums or sides of your mouth to view the surgical site, otherwise sutures may be torn. DO follow all of the instructions provided for post-extraction. DONT drink alcohol if youre taking pain medications. DO use caution when brushing your teeth, especially around the extractions. DONT hesitate to call the dentist with questions. DO follow up a week later to see if sutures need to be removed or if the healing process is going properly. Ridding the Mouth of Wisdom Teeth a Wise Idea For Man Ophthalmology GREGORY D.

Courtesy photoThe 29th Annual Downtown Festival & Art Show is proud to present this year's poster artist, Hugo Cruz. The featured artwork, "The Clock Tower," showcases his use of infrared photography to reveal new perspectives of the familiar world around us. As Hugo attests, "I fell in love with infrared photography primarily because of its ability to expose the ethereal and invisible universe of the infrared spectrum. It is equivalent to having a new sense ... an enhanced vision that manifests the hidden beauty of common subjects that we may have taken for granted." His unconventional artistry presents a vivid, new take on Gainesville's downtown Clock Tower, an iconic structure that is rich in history and grace. "I love Gainesville for its natural beauty, friendly residents and cultural abundance. I have been a visitor to the Downtown Festival & Art Show for nearly 20 years and have always admired the talented artists featured in its posters," he said. "Being only my second year as an artist/exhibitor, I am truly humbled and appreciative to be part of this honored history of elite poster artists. This is truly a dream come true." Hugo Cruz, a Gainesville resident, graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor's degree in liberal arts. After graduating, he had a successful career as a graphic artist, designer and publisher, but his passion was always creating unique art in different mediums. As a selftaught artist with an avid affinity to learn new techniques, he recently decided to dedicate himself to art full time. Cruz's current focus is in three distinct and captivating mediums: infrared photography, metal art and acrylic painting. Cruz is a respected member of the Gainesville art community and has won several awards and honors, including having his infrared photograph of the Baughman Center featured on the front cover of Gainesville's 2010 AT&T Yellow Pages. He also won the First Annual Gainesville Photography Contest earlier this year. Cruz's art and event schedule can be viewed on his website at www.HugoCruzGallery.co m. He also welcomes visitors to his local studio and gallery. The Downtown Festival & Art Show, held on Saturday, Nov. 6 and Sunday, Nov. 7, is Gainesville's most beloved tradition and a nationally recognized event. The festival will fill historic downtown, from City Hall to the Hippodrome State Theatre, with art, fine cuisine and live music and entertainmentGainesville artist offers a new perspective on historic landmarkon three stages.

(877)994-9904 Week of Sept. 27, 2010 569559-F Keep GivingI find all sorts of items at yard sales, sometimes brand new and never used. At the last sale, I came across a beautiful sterling silver picture frame and thought it would be a perfect gift for an upcoming wedding I had to attend. When I went to pay for it, the woman explained that it has been passed around many times. "Someone actually regifted it to me at my wedding," she said. "That's amazing," I replied. "But how did you know?" She laughed as she replied, "They forgot to change the names on the gift tag!" (Thanks to Diedra M.) Reader Humor Laughs For Sale Duane CashŽ Holze & Todd CarryŽ Holze www.ClassifiedGuys.com Wrapped UpHow much did you spend on the last wedding gift you bought? Although the relation of the bride or groom does play a role in many people's decision, the average attendee spends $85 on a wedding present according to The Association of Bridal Consultants . To top off the occasion, the association claims that wedding couples average about 100 gifts from the ceremony. Inaddition to hours of unwrapping, that makes for a lot of handwritten thankyou cards.Gift GiverWhen is it okay to regift? Some may respond, "Never!", but according to a survey commissioned by ebay , 64% of people admit to regifting, or secretly giving away unwanted gifts to others. That means most are not alone in the process. To avoid any embarrassment, it's advisable to make sure the item is actually new and not from a company that went out of business. If the idea of regifting makes you uncomfortable, you can always save all those items for your next yard sale. Fast FactsDear Classified Guys, While planning my wedding,I quickly learned that the guest list wasn't about whom I wanted to invite.It was more about my mom shaking the old family tree and seeing who fell out. When she asked me to invite her long-lost rich cousins,I expected the mystery relatives would at least bring a nice gift.However,when we unwrapped the gifts,we found a shocker.Their gift was a beautiful crystal punch bowl,but when I turned it over,I found a bright green $5 price tag that was obviously from a yard sale.We paid $125 per plate,and she gave me a $5 punch bowl.My husband said I should let it go,but don't you guys think spending $5 on a wedding gift from a yard sale is ridiculous?€€€Cash:Of course spending $5 on a crystal punch bowl is ridiculous. Your relatives could have at least haggled it down to $3!Carry:Although I can understand your frustration with your new-found relatives, it seems you had the wrong expectations. Regardless of whom your Mom shook out of the family tree, you should have been delighted that they attended your wedding. Anticipating an expensive gift in return was an error on your part.Cash:Now I have to agree that leaving the price sticker on the punch bowl was a major oversight and one that can be found offensive. Carry:It seems the problem was not the fact that your relatives purchased the gift at a yard sale, but that they actually got caught. By your own admission, the crystal bowl was a beautiful gift. Cash:It's difficult to say whether etiquette should discourage giving a wedding gift from a yard sale. There are many who would say that if the bowl was still new and in the original box, the gift is perfectly fine. That is, if the price sticker is removed first.Carry:Personally, I wouldn't have a use for a crystal punch bowl unless it's to change the oil in my car. Yet other people may find it to be the perfect wedding gift. Cash:As a newlywed, you may want to reconsider your husband's advice and let it go. Send your relatives a nice thank you card for attending the wedding and bringing a gift. Carry:Besides, if it's like many wedding gifts, youll probably try to sell it at your next yard sale!NOTICE Announcing the first meeting of the Divorced Women's Gun Club.

Mark and Monica are members of the long-time Gainesville musical family,Leadon Family Band to perform at Free Fridays Oct. 1The Leadon Family Band. Courtesy photo the Leadons. Two of their older brothers have had noted and successful careers in music, which included playing in bands in Gainesville during their younger years. Bernie Leadon is best known as an original member of the Eagles, and played in the Flying Burrito Brothers, Dillard & Clark, with Linda Ronstadt, Gram Parsons, Emmy Lou Harris and many others. Tom Leadon played with Tom Petty and Mike Campbell in a Gainesville band called Mudcrutch and then played with Johnny Rivers, Linda Ronstadt, Silver and others in Los Angeles. Mudcrutch reformed in 2008, released a new CD and is performing many concerts. The Leadon Family Band has performed a number of concerts in the north Florida and south Georgia region in recent years Also playing in the Leadon Family Band, musicians Jack Nettles (lead electric guitar), Jon Alexander (pedal steel guitar), Bill McGuire (bass) and Mark McMillan (drums) provide a strong, solid backbone sound behind Mark and Monica's lead vocals and acoustic rhythm guitars. The Leadon Family Band concerts consist of mostly original songs written by Mark and Monica. Their songs are expressive of themes and musical sounds found in much of the folk, country-rock and rock and roll songs they have grown up with. They have been particularly influenced by the careers of their older brothers and will often spice up their live performances by adding a couple of rousing cover songs, such as ones by the Eagles or Flying Burrito Brothers. The Downtown Plaza "Free Fridays" concerts run from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. every Friday night this year from May 7 through October 15.

PAGE 10, SEPTEMBER 29 & 30, 2010 CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE WWW.NFLAONLINE.COM SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA THE After last weeks column on why people might choose not to use coupons, I received these e-mails from readers: I had a horrifying experience at my local supermarket last week and found myself crying all the way home. Cashiers who single out coupon shoppers for bad treatment are getting more commonplace. Im almost ready to stop using coupons because of the stigma, harassment and belittlement. I wish someone would tell the media to stop glamorizing the use of coupons and show how coupon shoppers are really treated. There have been times where a cashier commented in front of my kids that we must be poor and were stealing from the store because I was using coupons. I have actually thought about bringing a hidden camera with me while shopping to let people know that it is not always glamorous to use coupons.Ž And another: I was trying to use a $1 coupon for chicken from my supermarkets flyer. The cashier actually yelled at me and said I couldnt use the $1 coupon without saying why. She then said I was a stupid newbie to coupons. I was so taken aback that I just walked out of the store without a word or my products. As I left, she yelled Loser! Just walk away and leave me with a mess of products to clean up! I stopped shopping at this store awhile ago because of rude treatment, but the only reason I even went in was to buy chicken with the coupon.Ž Im always dismayed to hear stories like these. Any time I tackle cashier issues in my column, I receive a flood of e-mails from cashiers defending both themselves and their shoppers. Most cashiers are good people who do their jobs well, are kind to their customers and accept coupons using guidelines outlined by the store. But, based on many stories shoppers have shared, a minority of cashiers seems to have declared war on coupon shoppers. Cashiers who belittle shoppers for using coupons have no place working in a customer-service field, in my opinion. Especially with the state of the economy, even shoppers who arent coupon die-hards likely use more coupons than they have in the past. If a shopper presents coupons that are acceptable under the terms of a stores coupon policy, cashiers should accept them. Period. And, a cashier should never berate a customer for using coupons. Ive encountered difficult cashiers over the years, too. Two themes seem to stand out: either the cashier truly is not aware that the store will be reimbursed for the coupons, or the cashier is tired of seeing people coming through their lane and receiving significant price reductions. I have stood at the checkout pointing out to a reluctant cashier the text on a manufacturers coupon that states the store will be reimbursed for the coupons value, watched the cashier brighten and say, Oh, so this is just like giving me one dollar cash.Ž It amazes me when cashiers arent aware of this, but it happens. Ive also heard many stories (and personally experienced) cashiers who say that they are sick of seeing coupon shoppers coming in and getting good deals all the time.Ž Whenever this happens, I usually counter it with a smile and say something like Why? Would you rather I take my business to your competitor?Ž Or, Your store is being reimbursed for every coupon. Are you trying to discourage me from shopping here?Ž The majority of cashiers are not as hostile as the ones these readers encountered, but sometimes it does take a thick skin to be a coupon shopper.

SEPTEMBER 29 & 30, 2010 , PAGE 13CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE WWW.NFLAONLINE.COM SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA The Ram 3500 has dual rear wheels, but it's nicely integrated because the rear fenders are flared over their entire length. Courtesy photoDodge's biggest work truck can drip with luxuryBy Derek Price CNHI News Service Today's automotive landscape is a weird place. Just look at the most popular kinds of vehicles being introduced as 2011 models. All are crazy combinations of things not meant to go together: crossover vehicles that try to be sports cars, four-door sedans that look like two-door coupes, and hybrid cars that can't decide whether they want to run on gasoline or electricity. Weirdest of all are heavy-duty trucks that try to be luxury cars. It's hard to think of more polar opposites in transportation than luxury cruisers and work trucks. Maybe a sports bus or a flying dump truck could top it. Somehow, though, all the companies that make heavy-duty trucks are trying to do the same thing. Each year they introduce versions of their giant pickups with fancier cabins and more gadgets, like trying to cross-breed a Lexus and a U-Haul. And it works. This week I drove the Ram 3500 Laramie, a truck that tows up to 17,600 pounds and comes with a DVD player, navigation system and leather seats that will blow cold air to keep your tush cool. It's an odd feeling having all that luxury crammed into a truck so obviously designed for doing dirty jobs. It has a 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engine that makes 650 pound-feet of torque, enough to pull a continental plate. It has a suspension that feels like it's made of cement, doors that open wide enough to let an aircraft in the cabin, and tires that look like they belong on an earth mover. But it also has wireless headphones, a satellite TVconnection and a soft dash with stitching that would look at home in a Jaguar. The 3500 is Ram's heaviest duty pickup. It comes with dual rear wheels to give it that superhero towing capacity, and normally that would mean the manufacturer would tack on an ugly, squarish cover to protect the wide rear wheels. On this truck, though, Dodge flared the entire length of the rear fender so the ultra-wide rear tires would look more integrated with the body. It's more refined than dualies have looked in the past. That same refinement extends to driving. It still feels like a serious truck -with a super-bouncy suspension, which is the worst part of pickups like this -but it's also surprisingly quiet once you shut the door. Dodge did a great job isolating the cabin from wind and road noise, which goes a long way toward reinforcing that luxury feel. The biggest surprise in this truck is the sound of the engine. The giant Cummins diesel idles almost as silently as a gasoline engine. You hear the clackety-clack of a diesel when you stomp on the gas pedal, but at stoplights and cruising speed there's hardly any engine clatter at all. One thing that won't surprise you is the price, as it doesn't come cheap. After all the options were added to my test truck, it was edging uncomfortably close to $60,000, which would buy an extremely nice BMWor Mercedes. Then again, people who buy a truck like this aren't getting it for transportation. They're using it as a tool to do a job Ñ probably to make serious money Ñ and it's the kind of work truck that can tackle anything most drivers would ever need. It's like an E-Class or a 5-Series that just happens to tow eight and a half tons. Derek Price is editor of the Herald Banner in Greenville,Texas. He writes for CNHI News Service,which distributes his column. Inside, the heavy-duty Ram 3500 can be outfitted like a luxury car, complete with ventilated leather seats and a rear-seat ente rtainment system that can see a few satellite TV channels.
