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.

Death penalty's



on the table



in triple murder
Staff
Two men charged in a McAlpin triple murder could
face the death penalty if convicted.
State Attorney Robert L. "Skip" Jarvis said Friday
he will seek the death penalty for James Lindsey
Howze, 38, and Lonnie Robert Munn, 47, in the mur-
der of three members of a McAlpin family in August.


Joseph Militello,
Nancy Militello, and
Angelo Rosales were
found dead in their
home on Aug. 25.
Howze and Munn
were later arrested in
Minnesota and
charged with the
crimes. A Suwannee
County grand jury in-
dicted the pair for
three counts of felony
murder in the first de-
gree, three counts of
home invasion rob-
bery and first degree
murder, three counts
of kidnapping, and
conspiracy to commit
home invasion rob-
bery and first degree
murder.
"I have carefully
weighed the facts of
this case and have
waited to have an op-
portunity to personal-
ly speak to the mem-
bers of the family,"
Jarvis said. "After
doing so I am con-
vinced that the death
penalty is warranted

however, be the first con-

An electrical short in the attic of this landmark 11th

smoldering insulation quickly and damage was limited
to about $6,500, according to an LOFD report.

Sometimes you just have

to laugh and let it go.
I've never thought I
m would look good with
a mustache, but I have
to admit this art work
is pretty good.

The fact of my signs
SI being vandalized and
going missing in
action (MIA) without
f so much as a card
from wherever they
may be saying, "wish you were here", does not change the
fact that I am the best prepared and most qualified
candidate for Suwannee County Judge.

I have proven my leadership abilities in places where it
matters -places like the courtrooms of north Florida and the
sands of the Middle East. I have served as a prosecutor,
defense attorney, judge, civil assistance attorney and law
professor. I have stood before the voters of Suwannee
County and made myself available for the hard questions in
public forums.

I make you this simple promise: Everyone coming to
county court will be treated with dignity, respect and
fairness. You can hold me accountable for this promise.

This is a decision that is too important to make on the basis
of gossip and rumor, and the facts are there for the asking.
Questions about me? Call me at 249-4803 or, email me at
votelinwilliams@&gmail.com. I look forward to hearing
from you.

I appreciate the support received from so many in my
campaign. I would appreciate your support and vote on
November 2. Please vote Lin Williams for Suwannee
County Judge.

Toenail Fungus Treatments
Onychomycosis is a medical term that refers to toenail fungus. Although
the big toe is typically affected first, other toes also may be infected. The
nail has discoloration that eventually spreads across the nail. Living in a
humid climate, a suppressed immune system, and diabetes can all lead to
a fungal toenail infection. Although the condition does not generally
pose a risk beyond cosmetic dissatisfaction and discomfort, persons with
diabetes and toenail fungus may also be at risk for bacterial cellulitis,
which is a more serious infection.
Some treatments applied topically generally are ineffective for toenail
fungus. Therefore, medications that are taken by mouth may be
prescribed. Terbinafine (Lamisil) is an antifungal medication that is
taken orally. Fluconazole (Diflucan) is also an antifungal medication
that may be prescribed for toenail fungus. These medications may need
to be taken for several months for treatment of the infection. Ciclopirox
(Penlac) is an antifungal nail lacquer that is applied topically for mild or
moderate nail fungus. It is commonly difficult to cure toenail fungus due
to those affected not taking medication for the full duration of time
recommended and resistance of the fungus to medication. A
dermatologist may need to be consulted if treatment difficulties occur.

SUWANNEE COUNTY VOTERS

My opponent has made claims about his qualifications for County Judge which are misleading and untrue in
his newspaper ads and mail outs.

HERE ARE THE FACTS:

MISLEADING

1) JUDGE - My opponent claims to have been a Judge. He has never been a Judge in the Courts of the
State of Florida or any Federal or State Court in the United States.
2) LAW PROFESSOR - My opponent claims to have been a law professor. He has never been employed as a
law professor at any Law School in the State of Florida or anywhere in the United States. He was an adjunct (part-
time) instructor who taught at a junior college in Daytona in 1985-1987. Daytona Beach Community College is not a
law school.
3) CIVIL ATTORNEY. My opponent claims to have practiced Civil Law. He has never practiced Civil Law in any
County or Circuit Court in the State of Florida.
4) LICENSED to PRACTICE in STATE, FEDERAL AND MILITARY COURTS - My opponent implies that I am
not licensed to practice in Florida Courts. I have been a member of the Florida Bar since October 15, 1986. I have
practiced in Suwannee County Courts, both Circuit and County, for the past 24 years. The qualifications required to
be a County Judge are: to be admitted to the Florida Bar and be a member for five years.

UNTRUE

5) DEFENSE ATTORNEY - My opponent claims I have never defended anyone charged with a crime. That is
simply untrue. When I was in private practice for six years, I practiced both Criminal and Civil Law.

So let's go over


this once again
By Dwain Walden
Some time ago I offered a protocol for serving
one's self from a buffet.
Apparently I wasn't taken seriously. So I'm go-
ing to address this issue once again.
Now don't get me wrong, I don't think any ordi-
nances should be officially adopted in this regard. I
think it should be common sense, kind of like not
texting on your cell phone while you're driving or
not going into a bikers' bar and criticizing tattoos.
Here's the protocol:
If you're going to the buffet line with small chil-
dren, do not wait until you get there to discuss the
food groups or what they might like to eat. Do this
ahead of time. For the most part, buffet bars in the
South have fried chicken, green beans, mashed
potatoes, ham, macaroni and cheese, butter beans,
etc. As well, they have cornbread, biscuits and
rolls. This may vary slightly with dumplings, dress-
ing and gravy. They all belong to the fat group. I
can prove it.
Let's face it, the kids are only going to play with
their food anyway. Give them a small sampling of
what they are used to and then experiment if they
do well with the first helping.
Then, don't take up a lot of time poking the food
and moving it around in the tray. We know that
fried chicken is divided into dark meat and white
meat. The dark meat has more calories than the
white because it tends to be greasier. But given the
fact that both are fried in grease, it's like choosing
whether to be beaten to death with a 30-pound
chain or a 35-pound chain. Ultimately, it won't re-
ally matter. You can still feel your left ventricle
closing as you order more ice tea.
And don't use your time in the buffet line for a
family reunion. If you meet aunt Gracie there, in-
vite her to come sit with you to discuss her gall
bladder surgery or the new preacher. (That's just an
off-the-cuff example.
I'm not suggesting that a sermon is that painful
though I have seen surgeries take less time.) But
don't discuss all of this right there between the
cream corn and the cherry cobbler. Remember Ec-
clesiastes where it talks about a time for every pur-
pose under heaven. I don't really mean to get Bib-
lical here, but a lot of the Bible does involve food.
If you recall, Jesus held the biggest fish fry in his-
tory.
And be advised that the food pyramid has been
changed several times. It now looks more like a
pile of cinder blocks unloaded at 5 p.m on a Friday.
If you are a bit obsessive compulsive or just
plain slow, then do a review of the buffet bar, but
do it one row back. Allow space between you and
the bar for what I would call an "active line." This
line is for those people who have accepted that we
are a nation of overweight people and that it's bet-
ter to be jolly than hungry and cranky. Think of it
as the left lane on the highway. Time is of the
essence. It could be Sunday and the Falcons kick
off at 1 p.m.
Now I realize that I've often suggested that we
need to slow down and smell the roses. However,
be very clear. I did not say slow down and smell the
roast beef. The situations are completely different.
I will not publish a pamphlet on this matter and
distribute it to all the buffet-oriented restaurants in
the area. However, if you would clip this out and
put it on your refrigerator door, it could address or-
der in the cosmos.

OPINION


Our contemptible Congress


umwanner


Ormotrat


[I]





2010
ER


Most people whom we elect to
Congress are either ignorant of,
have contempt for or are just "
plain stupid about the United
States Constitution. You say: ,
"Whoa, Williams, you're really
out of line! You'd better explain."
Let's look at it.
Rep. Phil Hare, D-Ill., respond- �
ing to a question during a town
hall meeting, said he's "not wor- BY WALTI
tried about the Constitution." That
was in response to a question about the constitutionality of
Obamacare. He told his constituents that the Constitution
guaranteed each of us "life, liberty and the pursuit of hap-
piness." Of course, our Constitution guarantees no such
thing. The expression "life, liberty and the pursuit of hap-
piness" is found in our Declaration of Independence.
During a debate, Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., gave his
opinion about the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens
United v. Federal Election Commission, concluding that
"the Constitution is wrong." Not to be outdone, at his town
hall meeting, Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., responded to a con-
stituent's question about Obamacare by saying, "There are
very few constitutional limits that would prevent the feder-
al government from (ii.ikiin.-) rules that can affect your pri-
vate life." Adding, "Yes, the federal government can do
most anything in this country." The questioner responded,
"People like you, sir, are destroying this nation." Her com-
ment won shouts of approval from the audience.
Last year, a CNS reporter asked, "Madam Speaker,
where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress
the authority to enact an individual health insurance man-
date?" Speaker Pelosi responded: "Are you serious? Are
you serious?" She shares the vision of her fellow Californ-
ian Stark that Washington can do most anything.
Congressional ignorance and contempt for our Consti-
tution isn't only on the Democrat side of the aisle. Dur-
ing a town hall meeting, Rep. Frank LoBiondo, R-N.J.,
was asked by one of his constituents whether he knew
what Article I, Section I of the Constitution mandated.
He replied that, "Article I, Section I is the right to free
speech."
Actually, Article I, Section I reads, "All legislative Pow-
ers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the Unit-


To the Editor:

The Lake Louise situation again points out, the priorities of the
County Commissioners are not in line with those of the voters.
Lake Louise is, and always has been, owned by the people of Flori-
da. Three years ago, the county was given property to build a boat
ramp to give access to the lake to the people who own it.... Yet,
they continue to resist building a simple boat ramp and minimal
parking area, which would take a few days, and very little money.
It would provide a wonderful recreational resource, of a type this
county is critically short on; safe lake fishing opportunities. Our
4H kids club has a fishing day once a month, but due to lack of
available lakes, must fish in a tiny pond, at the fairgrounds. The
excuse of the week from the commission is "permits take time."
As someone who has worked on permitting for similar type pro-
jects, I can say that is political hogwash. Permitting could be com-
pleted in a few months at most, as they promised to do, when the
land was generously donated. When talking to the recreation de-
partment, you get a variety of excuses, none of which hold up un-
der scrutiny. Even the kids, who should have access to Lake
Louise, know that it is special interests blocking the completion of
the ramp, in an attempt to keep the people from using a publicly
owned lake. Now, the lady who donated the land is trying to get it
back. She may succeed, to the delight of those interests, and the
detriment of the people. The commissioners actions (or lack there-
of) in this matter are inexcusable. The kids of Suwannee County
deserve better. The rest of us deserve who we vote for. I, for one,
am not voting for any incumbent. Let's purge the commission of
all that entrenched special interest influence, on Tuesday, and start
fresh. If the new ones don't put the people first, we can (and should)
do it again...

Greg Sefton


To the Editor:

Suwannee County and the State of Florida
continue to experience high job loss, stagnant
growth and a gloomy economic recovery.
That's why it's important to carefully consider
the ramifications of Amendment 4.
When you are exercising your right and oblig-
ation to vote, consider this. Passage of Amend-
ment 4 would require citizens to pay for refer-
enda for all changes to local government com-
prehensive plans, as well as, litigation costs and
election costs associated with this Amendment.
Even community projects that have the potential
to create jobs, such as schools, hospitals and
community centers would be affected.

Florida Tax Watch, a non-partisan, nonprofit
organization, reports that the endless legal bat-
tles that would follow the passage of Amend-
ment 4 would cost Florida tax payers over $1
billion.
Make no mistake, the only people that would
benefit by the passage of Amendment 4 are the
special interest groups behind it and the
lawyers.
Amendment 4 is bad for Suwannee County
and bad for Florida. Vote no on Amendment 4.

Sincerely,

ed States, which shall consist of a
Senate and House of Representa-
NORITY tives." LoBiondo was later asked
whether he knew the five rights
VMIEW guaranteed by the First Amend-
ment. Fearing further revelation
of his ignorance, he replied, "I
can't articulate that."
I Creators Syndicate By the way, those five guaran-
tees are: free exercise of religion,
WILLIAMS freedom of speech, freedom of
the press, the right to peaceable
assembly and the right to petition the government for re-
dress of grievances.
Here, in part, is the oath of office that each congressman
takes: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support
and defend the Constitution of the United States against all
enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith
and allegiance to the same ...." Here's my question to you:
If one takes an oath to uphold and defend, and bear true
faith and allegiance to the Constitution, at the minimum,
shouldn't he know what he's supposed to uphold, defend
and be faithful to?
If congressmen, judges, the president and other govern-
ment officials were merely ignorant of our Constitution,
there'd be hope -- ignorance is curable through education.
These people in Washington see themselves as our betters
and rulers. They have contempt for the limits our Constitu-
tion places on the federal government envisioned by James
Madison, the father of our Constitution, who explained in
the Federalist Paper 45: "The powers delegated by the pro-
posed Constitution to the federal government are few and
defined. Those which are to remain in the State govern-
ments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be ex-
ercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, ne-
gotiation, and foreign commerce. ... The powers reserved
to the several States will extend to all the objects which in
the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives and liber-
ties, and properties of the people, and the internal order,
improvement and prosperity of the State."

* The chance that breast cancer will be the cause
of a woman's death is about 3 percent.

* There are more than 2.5 million breast cancer..
survivors in the United States.

* Less than 1 percent of all new breast cancer cases
occur in men.


* White women are slightly more likely to be
diagnosed with breast cancer than African-American
women. However, African-American women are
more likely to die of the disease than white women,
possibly due to more aggressive tumors.

* The risk for breast cancer doubles for a woman if she
has a first-degree relative (sister, mother, daughter)
who has been diagnosed with the cancer.

* Roughly 5 to 10 percent of breast cancer causes
results from gene mutations inherited from the
mother or father.


The most B A$ f
significant risk
factors for
breast cancer
are simply
being a


woman
and
getting older.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: How can I keep dental expenses low?
A: These days it's important to keep costs
as low as possible. That includes medical
and dental expenses. You may think putting
off dental work is a way to save money But
not only will procrastinating on a dental
problem make it more serious - and more
expensive - to fix down the road, but
infections in the mouth, which is loaded
with bacteria, can spread to other parts of
the body and put you at risk for health
problems, like stroke, that ultimately are far
more serious than a toothache.
Think of the cost of dental treatment as an
investment - an investment in your teeth
and in your overall health - rather than as
an expense. You, of course, can help
yourself considerably and minimize
problems by brushing and flossing every
day Keep a toothbrush and toothpaste at
work and use them after eating. But
whatever steps you take on your own,
remember that two visits a year to a dentist
for an examination and cleaning are also
moves that will save you plent of money in
the long run. Talk with a dentist about ways
to stay healthy and keep bills down.

New obstetrics and
LAKE CITY-The Women's Center of Florida is
pleased to announce its arrival in Lake City. Dr. Emad Atta
and Dr. Chandler Mohan are operating the practice and
specifically picked Lake City as their destination of choice
for providing the latest services in the world of obstetrics
and �., .i i l*cc,,. ,.
"We saw a real opportunity to help the women of North
Central Florida and are also happy to be able to continue
working with each other. We have a lot in common and
knew that creating and running our own practice was a
dream we both shared," said Dr. Mohan.
Dr. Mohan and Dr. Atta first met while doing residency
work at the Emory University School of Medicine in At-
lanta. The two struck up a friendship and realized they
had similar goals during their time in the Department of
Gynecology and Obstetrics. Having both completed their
residencies in 2007, Dr. Atta and Dr. Mohan have spent
the last few years working in private practice at the
Women's Center of Blue Ridge in Salem, Va.
"There were several reasons we chose Lake City to start
our practice and I have to admit that the wonderful weath-
er helped make our decision that much easier. However,
we knew the time was right and working with Shands
Lake Shore would be a perfect fit for us as well," said Dr.
Atta.
The Women's Center of Florida is well positioned to be
the practice of choice for women in Lake City and its sur-
rounding counties. The practice specializes in both obstet-


gynecology practice opens in Lake City
rics and ., iccl, , and is committed to serving women
of all ages. Specializing in comprehensive obstetrics and
gynecological care, core services include but are not lim-
ited to; antenatal fetal surveillance testing, abnormal pap
treatment, menopause, osteoporosis management, infertil-
ity treatment, hormonal replacement, bladder problems,
hysterectomy, and skin laser treatments.
Additionally, Dr. Mohan and Dr. Atta will exclusively
deliver their patients' babies and treat patients requiring
surgery at Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center.IV
Patients will benefit from the hospital's array of services.
Shands Lake Shore's obstetrics and , i c,,-.1 , services
include child birth education classes and newborn hearing
screenings. The unit has six birthing rooms and three
triage rooms. State-of-the-art 4D ultrasound is also now
available for expectant mothers.
"This news is very exciting for us, in that the addition of
this practice will allow us to work together to meet the
ever-growing needs of the women of Lake City. We wel-
come Dr. Mohan and Dr. Atta to our region and look for-
ward to many years of service together," said Rhonda
Sherrod, Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center,
Market CEO.
The Women's Center of Florida is located at Shands
Medical Plaza North, 351 NE Franklin Street, #1125,
Lake City, FL 32055. The office phone number is 386-

To My Fellow Suwannee County Voters:

For 18 years, I have served the citizens of Suwannee County as your Assistant State
Attorney. I have successfully prosecuted hundreds of criminal cases on behalf of the
citizens of Suwannee, Madison, Hamilton, Lafayette and Columbia Counties. These
cases involved all types of crimes, from misdemeanors to attempted murder.

As a member of the State Attorney's Office, I successfully prosecuted criminals who
committed violent crimes and victimized our citizens and our children. My professional
reputation is taht of a skilled trail attorney who is fair but firm, committed to protecting the
rights of citizens and achieving a just result for all cases based on the law and the facts.
As your next county judge, I will continue to protect and serve our citizens and children of
Suwannee County.

On of the most important qualities of a judge is his "judicial temperament". What this
means is: How do you treat people? Do you treat people with respect? Are you kind and
tolerant of individuals in court who may not know the rules, practices and procedures of
the court? As the judge, are you willing to listen to everyone and not have your mind
made up before you hear what everyone has to say in the case? Judicial temperament is
very important in how effectively and efficiently a court functions. It is crucial that the
judge creates an atmosphere in the court that you as an individual feel that you will be
treated fairly, respectfully and your point of view was considered by the judge.

I will run your Suwannee County Court in the manner of treating people with respect and
how I would want to be treated.

Your vote in this election is very important! It's important to me and it is important to the
future of our county. When you cast your vote for county judge, please vote for GARY
BROWN. Your vote and support will be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,


Gary E. Brown

Last Saturday the 8th annual Live Oak
Fun Festival, now called the "Scarecrow
Festival," proved to be a really nice day of
beautiful weather and community fellow-
ship. One of the highlights was the "chili
cookoff" between our local city and county
offices held in Veterans Park, and I was im-
pressed with the variety of chilis offered.
The public on hand did the voting, which
was a nice slant, and got to enjoy some
good cooking for a very reasonable price.
You paid $5 at the ticket booth, received a


bowl, spoon, bottle of water (a necessity at
a couple of spicy chili booths), and a ticket
on which you wrote the number of the
booth that was your favorite chili maker,
and turned in your ticket after you sampled
all you could hold. Everyone was in a very
festive mood, and the chili-makers did their
best to entice you to come back for more
and to choose their offering.
There were a couple of other vendors
across the street in Millennium Park offer-
ing other food choices, as well as live en-
tertainment. And I will say that the folks


who provided the entertainment did a fine
job, so many of them singing as well as the
artists whose songs they performed. There
were activities for the children, a friendly
clown doing face painting, the "Birds of
Prey" lady with three beautiful owls on dis-
play and the stars of her show, craft and
yard sale booths for the adults, and special
sales going on at the various shops along
the Festival "row." And I loved the scare-
crows that were part of the town's decora-

tions. To all who were in-
volved in putting on this
event, it was a job well
done. I had a grand time!
I hope the readers of this
newspaper take the time to
read the "Calendar of
Events" in each issue.
There is so much going on
in Suwannee county that
provide activities for
the whole family, and we
are now in the best season
of the year for fun for all.
From events at the Spirit
of the Suwannee, the com-
munity college in Lake
City and the towns all
around us, there is some-
thing going on just about
every weekend through the
end of December. Get out
your calendars and mark
them down; make those
memories, take those pho-
tos, get out and support
our local communities
while enjoying the life
here in Suwannee
county.
Please remember the
work being done by Pat


and JoAnn Lynch, and
help them continue their
project by donating items

Wakulla crash leaves 2 dead; Suwannee residents injured


Continued From Page 1A

It was reported that all five
were riding in a Honda Civic dri-
ven by Williams shortly after
leaving a wedding at the Wakulla
County Shrine Club around 10
p.m.
Williams reportedly pulled out
in front of a Ford Super Duty
truck, near the Shrine Club, dri-
ven by Kenyard Coleman,17, of
Crawfordville who was traveling
northbound.
The Ford t-boned the Honda
"and nearly broke the Civic in
half' on the driver's side. Shallar
was sitting behind Williams in
the car.
The Honda was dragged about
75 feet, coming to a rest in the
middle of Highway 319. The
Ford flipped onto its side. Cole-
man and a passenger in the truck,


Chelsea Scalingi, 17, suffered
minor injuries and were treated at
the scene.
Both vehicles were reportedly
destroyed in the accident.
US 319 was closed for about
three hours for an investigation
and cleanup.
The Wakulla County Sheriff's
Department was still investigat-
ing the accident Monday after-
noon.

Collision with
semi leaves
woman critical
A Live Oak woman was criti-
cally injured when the pickup she
was driving collided with a semi-
truck in Columbia County Thurs-
day morning.
Jennifer L. Wilson, 25, was


eastbound on CR 240 in a 2008
Ford pickup when, for unknown
reasons according to the Florida
Highway Patrol, the vehicle trav-
eled into the westbound lane and
into the path of a westbound 2001
Mack semi-truck, driven by 42-
year-old Live Oak resident Paul
O'Hara.
FHP reported that a witness in
a vehicle traveling behind Wilson
said Wilson's vehicle "had been
driving erratically prior to the
crash with the semi."
The FHP report states that after
Wilson crossed the center line,
O'Hara braked and swerved to
the right in an attempt to avoid a
collision. The left front of Wil-
son's vehicle struck the left front
quarter of the semi, causing the
Ford pickup to rotate counter
clockwise, striking the rear
tandems of the semi, coming to a


final rest facing westbound on
CR 240. The semi jackknifed off
the ride side of the roadway,
coming to a final rest in the west-
bound ditch, partially on the
roadway of CR 240.
FHP said Wilson was airlifted
to Shands Gainesville.
Both drivers were were wear-
ing their safety belts.
O'Hara was unhurt, said FHP.
Wilson was listed in serious
condition by hospital personnel
at Shands UF Tuesday.
Charges are pending, said FHP.

Critical injuries
in south
Suwannee crash
An early morning crash left an
O'Brien man critically injured
Sunday.


Loyce Emlow Roberts, 50, was
southbound on US 129 about
half-mile north of Branford at
4:25 a.m. when his 1997 Ford F-
250 traveled onto the west shoul-
der and struck a power pole, ac-
cording to FHP.
On impact the truck spun
clockwise, but the left rear wheel
then dug into the grassy shoulder
of the steep embankment, caus-
ing it to spin in the opposite di-
rection. The vehicle was sent
back across the roadway, where it
overturned one-and-a-half times,
coming to rest on its roof across
both lanes.
Roberts, who was not wearing
a seat belt, was ejected.
Roberts was taken to Shands
UF by Suwannee County
Fire/Rescue personnel in critical
condition. He remained in critical
condition Tuesday.

Executions
Continued From Page 1A
the years prior, all execu-
tions in Florida were per-
formed in the county seat
where the conviction had
taken place. The county's
sheriff served as the hang-
man. Death row records
compiled by noted Georgia
defense attorney Kenneth
Driggs show eight con-
firmed hanging executions
in Suwannee County be-
tween 1878 and 1903.
Few details are available
about the 1878 hangings,
except that the condemned
men were Samuel Godwin
and Morgan Patrick, who
were both hanged on Sep-
tember 17, 1878 for the
shooting death of Mathew
Boseman on May 28, 1877
in Lafayette County.

'I encourage all women to have a mammogram. It could save your life.'


Editor's note: Sylvia Taylor recounts her experiences, in her own words,
as a breast cancer survivor
breast cancer. The very words can scare you
and when a doctor announces those two
words to you a million thoughts begin tum-
bling through your mind. At least that's how I
felt six years ago as a doctor said those words
to me.
In November of 2004, I went to Gainesville
for my annual mammogram. My husband, Jerry, had asked if I needed for
him to go with me but I told him no, that it was just a regular checkup, no
worries. I had planned to shop at the mall after the mammogram. It was
just going to be a regular day.
It did not, however, turn out to be a regular day. It was a day that would
impact me for the rest of my life, in fact. There is probably no greater
dread than the time that you wait after the mammogram for the technician
to come out and say c cl5 iIiiil is fine, you can go home now." This was
not to be the case for me that day as I had my turn at hearing those words
- breast cancer.
The next two weeks were filled with more doctor appointments and
more tests and decisions to be made. I had a biopsy during this time and
found myself sitting in the doctor's office waiting to see if indeed it was
cancer. My dad came with me for this appointment. I told everyone that it
was not necessary and that I was sure that I did not have cancer, so I did
not need anyone with me. But that was not the
case. My doctor came in to tell me that yes, I did
have cancer. Jeff Tippens I

The surgery was two weeks later. I had been prayed up and lifted up in
prayer by so many of my friends and family and I truly had peace about
the outcome. When I awoke after the surgery, my husband and daughter
were right there when we learned the doctor was able to get all the can-
cer with a lumpectomy. The cancer, as they had believed, was caught in a
very early stage. My mother and father and two of my best friends were
in the surgery waiting room and were able to hear this great news as
well.
I was blessed to be able to have 37 weeks of radiation treatments and
not have to undergo chemotherapy treatments. Radiation just wears you
down, though, and it was an exhausting time. One night I just really fell
apart and let a little of that fear creep back in. But God is greater than
any fear we can have and He restored the peace I had been living in for
weeks. The love and support of my family and friends and God's mercy
and grace carried me through those long months. He was with me every
step of the way, through every treatment, every moment, every day. I had
known God's love all my life, but at that moment in my life I came to
know Him in an even deeper way.
This November I will celebrate six years since my surgery and I am
cancer free. God has been so good to me and my family. I love working
with women in Sunday School and bible studies. I feel like God has giv-
en me the rest of my life to share His love with others. I survived breast
cancer by God's grace and we can all overcome the challenges we face
when God is our anchor.
I encourage all women to have a mammogram. It could save your life.

LIVE OAK-Suwannee had visiting Ribault right
where they wanted them in a close, hard-fought game
Friday night at Paul Langford Stadium.
Unfortunately, Ribault (5-2, 3-0) dug themselves out
of the hole and escaped with a 14-8 District 2-2A win
over host Suwannee (2-5, 1-2).

Down 8-6, with eight minutes left in the game, Rib-
ault senior quarterback Damien Fleming connected with
Charles Brown on a 96-yard touchdown pass. Fleming,
a Vanderbilt commitment, then found Brown for the
two-point conversion pass to give the Trojans a 14-8
lead.
Ribault stopped Suwannee on a fourth-and-4 from its
8-yard line to win the game and remain in control of the
district with arch-rival Raines.

With teams fighting for their lives Friday
night, the playoff picture became a little clearer.
Suwannee and Branford have been eliminat-
ed from the playoffs or from winning their con-
ference title.
DISTRICT 2-2A
Raines (3-0) and Ribault (3-0) remain the
two unbeaten teams in the district and are one
win from clinching playoff spots.
Ribault can clinch the first berth with a win
over Baldwin Thursday night, while Raines
can follow Friday by beating Santa Fe on the
road.
Santa Fe (1-2) remains mathematically alive
with a win over Baldwin to pick up their first
win of the season. If Santa Fe can upset Raines,
the Raiders would remain alive and possibly
steal a playoff spot from Raines due to head-to-
head tiebreaker.
Suwannee (1-2), Baker County (1-2) and
Baldwin (0-3) were eliminated from the play-
offs with losses Friday night.
DISTRICT 5-1A
Hamilton County (4-0) remains at the top of
the district standings tied with The Villages (4-
0). The two face off this Friday at The Villages,
with the winner clinching the district title.
Wildwood (3-1) and Trenton (2-2) took a step
back with losses to both Hamilton and The Vil-
lages and remain in the race. The two teams
meet in Wildwood. The loser is eliminated from
the playoffs, the winner remains in contention
for at least another week.
Dixie County (2-3), Hilliard (0-5) and
Chiefland (0-4) have all been eliminated from
the playoffs.
DISTRICT 2-1 B
Lafayette (5-0) clinched its fifth district title
in the last six years with a convincing 41-7 win
over Hawthorne (4-1) Friday night at Dale
Walker Field. With the loss, Hawthorne is the
district runner-up.
Mandarin Christian (3-2), St. Francis (2-2),
St. Johns (2-3), Aucilla (1-5) and Oak Hall (0-
4) were all eliminated from the playoffs.
BIG TEN CONFERENCE
Bishop Snyder clinched the Western Division
two weeks ago with a win over Bell, leaving
Bell (2-1), Branford (1-1) and St. Joseph (1-2)
to battle for second.
Branford hosts St. Joseph this week for
homecoming and Bell in two weeks for senior
night with a chance to finish second.
Mandarin Christian (2-0) and St. Francis (1-
0) meet this Friday at Mandarin to decide the
East Division.

W we've been in business for over 25 years and
although sales are difficult to come by,
mimicking the big box stores' techniques will not
bring us additional sales. We need to do what we do,
better than anyone else. Business isn't what it used
to be, but we're going to fight the battle on our
ground not on their ground. I don't want to fight a
tiger in the tiger's home field.
We worked with our advertising agency to come
up with a way to show off what we do better. We
came up with our "Dare To Compare" campaign.
Comparison prices were obtained by shopping the
stores offering the low price installations. We know
the customer doesn't understand all the different
add-ons and how things are priced. A $99 install

Football history still needed


By Corey Davis
corey.davis@gaflnews.com

I have received several emails and phone calls from
people sending me copies of yearbook pages or informa-
tion 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 sin-
gle 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 some-
time. In the back of the program, Columbia lists every
single schedule and game results from every year as well


A
Byron Bass


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, Hous-
ton, Wellborn, Mayo, Branford, Jasper, Jennings and Lu-
raville's help.
Through my research, I have discovered that Suwan-
nee'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 re-
sults: 1926-1969, 1972-1986, 1989, and 1994.
Soon I will be checking scores from previous newspa-
pers 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 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 Madison County or Columbia, or how
Branford has done against long time rivals Bell, Bron-
son and Lafayette or how Hamilton has done against
Suwannee or even perhaps against Branford and
Lafayette.

clean your carpet using hot water extraction

Have you ever won-

Consider this: A recent
study followed running
times over the span of a
year and calculated an av-
erage marathon time for a


male runner is about 41/2
hours and for a female
runner it is a little over 5
hours. And the study con-
cluded that the average
walker may take 6 to 8
hours to complete the

how positive your mental
picture may be, there are
factors come in to play
that are well beyond your
control and may affect
time on the course, like
terrain, altitude, and tem-
perature.
With all the time com-
mitments and the chal-
lenges that come with
marathons and marathon
training, what makes
someone want to complete
a huge event like this (let
alone, do it over and over
again)?
Let's find out.
Q & A with Dee Loper
H. i1, '.
I understand that you
have completed quite a
few marathons. How
many have you complet-
ed?
I have completed 21
marathons so far. On Oc-
tober 10, 2010, I will do
my 22nd. My first event
was the 1999 Portland
Marathon 11 years ago.
How did you decide to
sign up for your first
event?
My friend thought that I
would be good at walking
marathons, so she asked

me to sign up and give it a try.
Having 21 marathons under your
belt is extremely impressive! How
many have you done this year? I have
completed three so far. Portland
Marathon on October 10 will be my
fourth.
You mentioned that you have done
some outside of Portland. How far
have you traveled?
Florida is the farthest I've been so far.
I've also done events done California,
Arizona, Idaho & Washington.
Does your family travel with you
and meet you at the finish for every
event?
My daughter has gone with me for the
majority of my marathons. I grew up in
Florida and have several family mem-
bers that still live there, so when I did
the Walt Disney World Marathon last
year, my daughter and other family
members met me at the finish line. It
was nice to go home and do a marathon
so that my family could see me in action
doing what I love to do.
What is your average or best time?
When you set out to do an event, do
you have a goal or do you just want to
finish? I had my best time in Coeur
d'Alene a few months ago. I completed
the course in 5 hours and 38 minutes.
Every time I start an event, I always set
out to beat my last time. I am very com-
petitive and not finishing an event is not
an option for me.
What keeps you motivated enough
to keep coming back to do another?
Doing well keeps me motivated. Also,
I really enjoy meeting all the great peo-
ple on the course. I get a kick out of
seeing folks pace me and then I usually
end up finishing ahead of them (and
some are even runners). The support
that I get from my family and my
friends are big motivators for me also.
What do you like best about doing
marathons?
I love the excitement of the events,
the competitiveness and becoming one
with nature as I walk. I also love how I
feel after the event, which is very fit and
rejuvenated.
What do you like least?
I don't like the fact that walkers are
not recognized like the runners when it
comes to events like a marathon. There
are a lot of speed walkers that cross the
finish line well before runners.
How often do you replace your
shoes?
I always train in two pairs of shoes.
Rule of thumb is you should only put
about 800 miles on each pair of shoes. I
buy two pairs of shoes each year and ro-

to


fill


tate them regularly.
What do you eat the night before a
walk? For breakfast the morning of
the event? During the walk? The night
before the walk, I always eat pasta. For
breakfast on the morning of the event I
eat bananas. During the walk, I take in
energy snacks, such as Shot Bloks and
gummy bears. I also do a salt packet at
around mile 13 to keep me from cramp-
ing when I am climbing hills.
Are you part of a walk group or do
you walk solo?
I do my marathons solo, but I am part
of an African American walking group
called the Soleful Strutters. We do the
Portland to Coast. I joined this team last
year and it has been a great experience.
We train at least four to five times a
week. The training is intense and very
rewarding. On top of walking, we do
strength training, aerobics and boot
camp.
Do you wear music when you walk?
If so, what song inspires you?
Yes, I wear music and enjoy listening
to uplifting tunes. The one song that in-
spires me the most is called "Stomp" by
Kirk Franklin
I understand that marathons can be a
challenge mentally. How much do you
feel is physical and how much mental?
For me, it is about 50 percent mental
and 50 percent physical. Once I get my
head focused and legs warmed up after a
few miles I am ready to roll. I do talk to
myself quite often on the course, espe-
cially when I have someone pacing me
or when I know that I am coming to a
big hill.
Over the years, how would you say
your perspective has changed?
First and foremost, each marathon be-
comes more and more important to me.
Looking back from 1999 to now really
blows my mind as to how far I have
come and how much I have improved.
When I started out, I simply wanted to
see if I could complete it. Now, I feel
like an athlete and I train like an athlete.
The more I train, the better I get and the
better I feel about me and about my life.
What do you do with all your
medals?
I keep them all together. I am in the
process of making a display shelf for
them. I also have plaques with my photo
and finishing time. Someday, I plan to
have them all on display so that I can
easily look back on all that I have ac-
complished.

LIVE OAK-It is a very exciting time
for Suwannee High athletic as a whole.
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 2009-2010 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 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 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 (pnidii. sponsors) and reassign-
ment 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 re-
new 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 cur-
rently 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 my-
self on my cell at 209-1054 (text only)
or at my work at 938-4092.

first Thursday night of each month. Host- ence Room at SHRC. If you are a care-

phone number listed above. In addition,
electronic copies of these documents are
available on the following web site by en-
tering draft permit number:
http://www.dep.state.fl.us/air/emission/ap
ds/default.asp.
Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit:
The Permitting Authority gives notice of
its intent to issue an air construction per-
mit to the applicant for the project de-
scribed above. The applicant has provid-
ed reasonable assurance that operation
of proposed equipment will not adversely
impact air quality and that the project will
comply with all appropriate provisions of
Chapters 62-4, 62-204, 62-210, 62-212,
62-296 and 62-297, F.A.C. The Permit-
ting Authority will issue a Final Permit in
accordance with the conditions of the pro-
posed Draft Permit unless a timely peti-
tion for an administrative hearing is filed
under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S.
or unless public comment received in ac-
cordance with this notice results in a dif-
ferent decision or a significant change of
terms or conditions.
Comments: The Permitting Authority will
accept written comments concerning the
proposed Draft Permit for a period of 14
days from the date of publication of this
Public Notice. Written comments must be
received by the Permitting Authority by
close of business (5:00 p.m.) on or before
the end of the 14-day period. If written
comments received result in a significant
change to the Draft Permit, the Permitting
Authority shall revise the Draft Permit and
require, if applicable, another Public No-
tice. All comments filed will be made
available for public inspection.
Petitions: A person whose substantial
interests are affected by the proposed
permitting decision may petition for an
administrative hearing in accordance with
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The
petition must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed with (re-
ceived by) the Department's Agency
Clerk in the Office of General Counsel of
the Department of Environmental Protec-
tion at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000 (Telephone: 850/245-2241).
Petitions filed by any persons other than
those entitled to written notice under Sec-
tion 120.60(3), F.S. must be filed within
14 days of publication of this Public No-
tice or receipt of a written notice,
whichever occurs first. Under Section


Suwannee Legals
120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who
asked the Permitting Authority for notice
of agency action may file a petition within
14 days of receipt of that notice, regard-
less of the date of publication. A petition-
er shall mail a copy of the petition to the
applicant at the address indicated above,
at the time of filing. The failure of any per-
son to file a petition within the appropriate
time period shall constitute a waiver of
that person's right to request an adminis-
trative determination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to
intervene in this proceeding and partici-
pate as a party to it. Any subsequent in-
tervention (in a proceeding initiated by
another party) will be only at the approval
of the presiding officer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, F.A.C.
A petition that disputes the material facts
on which the Permitting Authority's action
is based must contain the following infor-
mation: (a) The name and address of
each agency affected and each agency's
file or identification number, if known; (b)
The name, address and telephone num-
ber of the petitioner; the name address
and telephone number of the petitioner's
representative, if any, which shall be the
address for service purposes during the
course of the proceeding; and an expla-
nation of how the petitioner's substantial
rights will be affected by the agency de-
termination; (c) A statement of when and
how the petitioner received notice of the
agency action or proposed decision; (d) A
statement of all disputed issues of mater-
ial fact. If there are none, the petition
must so state; (e) A concise statement of
the ultimate facts alleged, including the
specific facts the petitioner contends war-
rant reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action; (f) A statement
of the specific rules or statutes the peti-
tioner contends require reversal or modi-
fication of the agency's proposed action
including an explanation of how the al-
leged facts relate to the specific rules or
statutes; and, (g) A statement of the relief
sought by the petitioner, stating precisely
the action the petitioner wishes the
agency to take with respect to the
agency's proposed action. A petition that
does not dispute the material facts upon
which the Permitting Authority's action is
based shall state that no such facts are in
dispute and otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth above, as
required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Permitting Authority's final
action may be different from the position
taken by it in this Public Notice of Intent to
Issue Air Permit. Persons whose sub-
stantial interests will be affected by any
such final decision of the Permitting Au-
thority on the application have the right to
petition to become a party to the pro-
ceeding, in accordance with the require-
ments set forth above.
Mediation: Mediation is not available for
this proceeding.

What draws people
back to this little Village
on the Suwannee? Let's
look at just one family.
One man. Up in Virginia
in 1961 there was a Mr.
Gutshall, a father trying
to work and single-hand-
edly raise seven children.
Finally he realized he
needed help. He said it
was the hardest decision
of his life to bring 13-
year-old Allan and twelve
year old Grady to the
Home and Orphanage in
Dowling Park.
Though Mr. Gutshall
had never seen the Home
and Orphanage, he was
certainly familiar with it.
In most Advent Christian
Churches a fifth Sunday
offering was taken for the
Home and Orphanage.
Plus his grandfather had
cut the timber from his
own land and built the
Victory Chapel and
preached there, one of the
oldest Advent Christian
Churches in Virginia.
When Grady arrived at
the Home and Orphanage,
he was a shy boy, tall,
lanky and dark-headed.

Later Grady was to say,
"In spite of the sulphur
water and the hard farm
work, I found a family
here."
He arrived when things
were changing at the
Home and Orphanage.
Early mornings were spent
milking the cows. It was
cold and dark. Then a rare
snow covered everything.
Pomeroy Carter began cal-
culating that they could
buy milk cheaper than
they could produce it.
Those cold, early milking
times were over.
There were about 40-50
purebred black Angus
cows and 20 hogs to be
cared for. At 13 Grady
learned to drive the old
Farmall tractor to take hay
to the cattle and slop to the
pigs. The tractor was also
used to pull a wagon for
hay rides and to carry
clothes from the laundry
and food from the dining
hall.
Smiling, Grady says, "It
was a good life. We were
treated like family. And
there was always the fun
of swimming in the


on the rope tied to the old
oak tree. Whether we were
attending school, partici-
pating in community activ-
ities or other outside
events, we were always
accepted by the communi-
ty and never singled out or
looked upon as being dif-
ferent or outsiders. The
people always welcomed
us and treated us like we
belonged."
The DeLong Building
housed the boys down-
stairs and the girls up-
stairs. Grady remembers
the Duckworths and the
Liddys who were house
parents and Ethel Fielding
was the relief houseparent.
As the boys got older they
worked tobacco at the lo-
cal farms. This was
Grady's first job and he
made $3 a day.
There were five horses
on the place. Grady rode
Tony the most. He called
Dynamite an idiot because
he was a wild, bucking
horse. And there was Jack,
who was hard to ride be-
cause he always wanted to
go back to the barn.
Grady and Allan were
joined later by a sister and

a brother and even later
another brother. They
loved to go back to Vir-
ginia to see their Daddy
who was content with
where they were living.
Grady remembered that
the kids always did things
together and could get up a
game of softball and bas-
ketball with no trouble. On
Sunday they were taken
into Live Oak to the
church. He remembers that
on Easter the boys dressed
in black pants and white
shirts. The girls were
freezing in their Easter fin-
ery because it was always
cold.
Every child had a spon-
sor, either a church or a
couple. They would send
gifts and if they sent mon-
ey, Pomeroy and Jerry took
them shopping. Jerry and
Pomeroy steered them to-
ward wise purchases.
Grady said, "Jerry always
had a calming influence."
He suspected she also was
the number one elf who
bought and wrapped their
Christmas gifts. He re-
members each child re-
ceived a large box of gifts
under the tree.
One of Grady's jobs was
to weed the watermelon


patch where the Carter Vil-
lage Hall is now located.
No one questioned that a
few melons never made it
to the dining room. Anoth-
er job was planting the
pine trees in the Village.
The residents in River
Woods can thank Grady
and Steve Bridges for all
the mature pines on their
property.
In those days, if there
was squabbling and dis-
agreements among the
boys, they settled things
themselves. "There was al-
ways a good camaraderie
among the boys."
Pomeroy was quick to
think of ways to keep them
all busy. Grady explained,
"Pomeroy, always the
thinker, seemed to know
what to do."
Cottages were built for
the children to live in like
a family. In Keeper's Cot-
tage, Grady roomed with
Steve Bridges. The twelve
boys were expected to
keep their beds made and
the rooms neat, to sweep
the halls and to help with
meals.
Grady laughs as he re-
membered getting up early
before the children lined
up for the school bus and

with Mervin Libby running
through the woods to hitch
a ride to Clayland Elemen-
tary School. One day when
they didn't get a ride and
didn't beat the bus, they
found the principal waiting
to give them six licks.
Grady adds wryly, "Game
was over."
School was hard for
Grady and math was im-
possible, but he was an
outdoor boy and enjoyed
the farm work. John Mox-
ley was the farm manager.
After Law School, John
came back to help the Vil-
lagers with their legal is-
sues.
At 18, Grady went to the
Florida Barber School in
Jacksonville. Thus, began
a career of cutting hair that
has lasted forty-three
years. Eventually he got
his own shop in
Gainesville called
"Grady's Hair Quarters."
By now Grady had
reached six feet four with
black hair and was slim as
a teen-ager. Pomeroy was
still a part of his life and
encouraged Grady to come
back to the Village. Grady
came explaining, "This felt
like home to me."
While the Village Shop
was being completed,
Grady worked at the Live
Oak Barber Shop. He
opened the Village Hair
Cropper and hung his bar-
ber pole out front. This
was a part-time job, so he
held down other jobs, like
being a house parent in
Colton Cottage and work-
ing on the grounds cutting
grass. He worked along-
side Craig Carter who also
went away for college, but
then was drawn back.
Grady remembered there


was a lot of fun with Craig
and Pomeroy loving a
practical joke. Years later,
in 2010 at Pomeroy's urg-
ing, Grady returned to Ad-
vent Christian Village for
the third time. This time,
though his hair had turned
to silver, Grady was still
tall and slim. He hung his
barber pole at the Village
Hair Cropper again and
went back to barbering.
When Grady was a
teenager, Pomeroy's father,
M. A. Carter, had a great
influence on him. He
wrote about one day fish-
ing with Mr. M. A., who
asked him, "Did you know
that there's a treasure here
in the river? There's a trea-
sure here, all right, and if
you want to find it, you'll
have to keep coming
back." Imagining pirate's
gold, or something from
the Indians, Grady came
often to look in the river
for the treasure.
Years later Grady wrote
that he realized that Mr.
Carter's treasure was,
Nriii.ii less than the star-
tling beauty of the Suwan-
nee, which fairly shouts
the glory of God's handi-
work. And I realized, too,
that the Village's unique
treasure could never be
measured by its buildings
or by its silver or gold. It's
measured, instead, by its
insight: that each of us is a
treasure, the work of God's
hand, valued for who we
are and for who we may
yet become."
Maybe, just maybe,
Grady answered the ques-
tion of why people are ir-
resistibly drawn to the Vil-
lage again and again. They
find here the treasure --
themselves.

It's strange, environment




enemies, now allies


OCTOBER 27 & 28, 2010, PAGE 3


By Dr E. Kirsten Peters
CNHI News Service

I remember well when Barbara Man-
drell and George Jones sang a fine coun-
try and western song about changes in
public perspective. For those of you too
young to remember, the lyrics of the cho-
rus were:
"I was country when country wasn't
cool/I was country from my hat down to
my boots/I still act and look the
same/what you see ain't nothing' new/I
was country when country wasn't cool."
The song rocketed up the charts when
the country twang had become the fashion
in popular music -- a testimony to how
public opinion can turn on a dime because
country music hasn't been popular outside
its niche before nor since.
Here's another example of how public
perspectives can radically change. It was-
n't that long ago that most environmental-
ists viewed the wood-products industry as
the enemy. The image of lumberjacks cut-
ting down trees seemed to many like a
picture of rapacious wolves gobbling
down innocent bunny rabbits.
But opinions have changed about that,
too.
"I think some of my green friends in
the old days thought I was a 'lumber-
Nazi,'" Dr. Karl Englund said to me re-
cently.
Englund is an engineering researcher in
wood products and their uses at Washing-
ton State University.
"But there's been a real 180 degree
turn. Now people understand that wood
products are a renewable and green re-
source," he continued.
Englund spoke as he gave me a tour of
the research and testing facility where he


works.
"You can think of wood as solid carbon
dioxide, exactly what we need to take car-
bon dioxide out of the air and put it into
'sinks' where it will stay for a long time,"
he said while knocking - of course - on
wood.
To be sure, there's nothing new about
lumber. But what is new are the materials
that people like Englund dream up and
produce out of scrap wood, saw dust,
waste plastic and other materials of little
value.
Laminated veneer lumber, or LVL, was
one of the first products to come out of
wood engineering labors. LVL is made of
thin but large layers of wood that require
a full-sized log. They are then pressed and
glued together to form material that's
stronger and more uniform than lumber.
Oriented strand board, or OSB, is also
useful because it's made of smaller strips
of wood in layers that are oriented in al-
ternating directions.
Another, newer material that's a topic
of research is formed from short strips of
wood that are heated and pressed into 3-D
forms that create what engineers call a
"complex geometric shape."
I'd call it a wood waffle. It's interesting
stuff just to toss around.
Now think of such a waffle that has a
thin veneer of wood on its top and bot-
tom. What you have is a material that's
lightweight, strong, and even traps air in
its pockets, making it naturally insulating.
That's good engineering all around, the
type of thing Englund and his colleagues
are researching for possible transmission
to the commercial sector.
But the story gets better from a green
point of view.
Smaller pieces of waste wood can be


ground up to
material similar
in size to
whole-wheat
flour. When
combined in a
giant extruder
with plastic -
including recy-
cled plastics
that otherwise
would be waste - the fine wood fiber par-
ticles form the strength component of
products like composite lumber decking.
The material doesn't rot outdoors because
the plastic seals the wood away from
moisture. Add some coloring agents, and
you have decking that looks fine and will
never jam a splinter into your bare feet.
Good engineering isn't limited to wood
products. When material is ground up to
small sizes, wheat straw, rice straw and
other agricultural by-products can be used
in some basically similar ways.
Englund has a refreshing perspective on
his engineering work.


"I'm a garbage
guy," he said. "The
point is to use people's
waste."
Englund may work mainly within the
wood-products industry, but it's clear to
me he's really green. And he always had
been.
Unlike public opinion, some things are
a constant.
And yes, I'm still listening' to country
music sometimes in my best western hat.

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

an expert esthetician can help deliver a
variety of benefits such as
moisturization, deep cleansing and
exfoliation. If you can afford a
professional facial make sure you're
"in the hands" of an expert esthetician
or you could wind up with irritation or
scarring.
MYTH: Wrinkle creams can
completely eradicate wrinkles.
FACT: These days there are many
ways to "erase" the signs of time on the
skin. The most effective ways are with
injectable substances, fillers or plastic
surgery. Professionally administered
chemical peels and lasers can also help
give your skin a fresher, more youthful
appearance. Anti-aging creams cannot
"completely remove wrinkles," but
their formulas often contain ingredients
such as niacinamide, hyaluronic acid
and ceramides that deeply moisturize
the skin and make it look more supple
and radiant.
MYTH: Doing facial exercises will
tone facial muscles, providing a more
youthful appearance.
FACT: There has never been any
substantiation for this beauty myth. In
fact, certain facial movements such as
squinting and laughing may contribute
to the formation of wrinkles -- maybe
that's why we call them laugh lines and
crows feet.
MYTH: Expensive skincare products
are better for your skin.
FACT: Many mass-marketed products
available at your local drugstore are
just as effective as luxury department-
store brands. In fact, many contain the
same ingredients as their more
expensive counterparts. Elegant
packaging, advertising and luxury
brand names are often what you pay for
when purchasing more expensive
products. CeraVe(R) cleansers and
moisturizers, which contain ceramides,
hyaluronic acid, cholesterol and
niacinamide, found in pricier brands,
also feature a patented technology that
allows a single application to go a long
way. The ingredients unravel slowly in
the skin where they continue to work
for up to 24 hours. CeraVe(R) Facial
Moisturizing Lotion PM, applied
before bedtime, penetrates the skin
barrier to lock in precious moisture.
CeraVe(R) Facial Moisturizing Lotion
AM with SPF 30 provides broad-
spectrum protection against harmful
UV rays year round. It's 24/7 skincare.

An orb deemed to have
been autographed by Babe
Ruth in 1929 sold for
$7,250 in an auction Sun-
day in Mankato.
Auctioneer Willa Dailey
said the buyer, a male who
prefers anonymity, bested
about 20 others in a sale
conducted on the Internet
and for on-site bidders.
Dailey said the ball's
sale price was in line with
prices received for similar
Ruth baseballs and jibed
with a recent value esti-
mate she received from a
dealer in sports col-
lectibles.
"I'm very satisfied. Of
course, I always hope it'll
bring more because I work
on commission, and in my
business you're paid for re-
sults, not effort," Dailey
said.
The process was for seri-
ous buyers only, with an
opening bid price set at
$6,000. That dissuaded 12
Internet bidders immedi-
ately, with five people duk-
ing it out until the end,
Dailey said.
With sales tax and auc-
tion fees the buyer ended
up with a tab of about
$8,300.
The Ruth baseball was
found among myriad boxes
of belongings hoarded
away over the decades by
Margaret Rudowsky, an el-
derly Wisconsin resident
whose possessions were
left to relatives.
Proceeds from the ball
sale will go to Rudowsky,
whose said her late hus-
band attended a 1929 game
at Chicago's Comiskey
Park in which Ruth home-
red.
Rudowsky said her hus-
band caught the ball and
had Ruth sign it.
Information for this sto-
ry was provided by The
Free Press in Mankato,
Minn.

Dear Classified Guys,
I'm a single woman in my mid-thirties
and just moved from a condo to a
house. Now I'm faced with the task
of mowing an acre of grass every
week. I've come up with two solu-
tions. Find a husband to do it for me,
or buy a lawn mower. Since my dat-
ing options have been rather disap-
pointing lately, I'm opting for the
mower. My question is, what kind
should I get? With the classified full
of lawn equipment for sale, it seems
awfully confusing to me.
Carry: Tractors, lawn mowers, hus-
bands...doesn't matter. They
all require some sort of
maintenance. The plus side _ )
to getting a husband is that
he could come with a tractor.
The trouble may be getting him
to use it.
Cash: Sounds like the lawn mower is
your better bet. As for which kind to get,
let's see if we can help you. Although
there is a large variety, by eliminating the
professional machines you can break
your choices down into two categories:
push mowers and tractors.
Carry: The question is how much
exercise do you want and how much
time do you have to mow the lawn? A

62010 The Classified Guys,


typical push mower cuts a path of 19 to
22 inches. With slightly less than two
feet of cutting width, it might take you
most of an afternoon to mow your acre
of property. That's a lot of exercise.
Cash: You can opt for a self-pro-
pelled model to save your energy, but it
won't save you much more time. The
quicker method to mow lawns above a
half acre would be to use a lawn tractor.
Carry: Now we're talking. A tractor
is the only vehicle I can operate with-
out my wife telling me how to drive.
Cash: I've seen you drive and I'm not


sure that's a good thing! Tractors typical-
ly have a cutting path of 38 to 44 inches
using several blades. There are smaller
versions often referred to as "riding
mowers", but for about the same cost, a
lawn tractor will mow the lawn faster.
Carry: Depending on the landscap-
ing around your home or driveway, you
may still need a push mower to get into
those tight spaces.
Cash: There is, of course, one more
alternative that eliminates your need for
both a tractor and a husband. Hire a
good lawn service!


Making the Cut
While mowing the lawn may seem
like just another weekend chore, it's
actually big business. Consumers
spend over $40 billion each year to
maintain and improve their yards. It is
estimated that about 50 million home-
owners mow and care for about 21
millions acres of lawn. That averages
to just about .42 acres per home. So
whether you hire a service, drive a
tractor or push the mower, that's a lot
of grass clippings!
Safety First
When it comes to mowing your
lawn, consumers are not always as safe
as they should be. According to the US
Consumer Product Safety Commission,
there are more than 60,000 injuries
related to unsafe lawn equipment oper-
ation every year. That's why it's
important to protect yourself. Be sure
to wear proper clothing, such as long
pants to shield your legs, and good
footwear for stability, traction and pro-
tecting your toes. Safety glasses and
hearing protection are also very impor-
tant. It pays to stay safe since the lawn
will surely need mowing next week.

Get Off Your Grass
My neighbor Lilly and I are best
friends, but she does complain about
how lazy her husband is. "He didn't
take out the garbage last night," or
"He watched the football game all
day on Saturday," are just some of
her weekly gripes.
The other day she called and said,
"You have to come over right away."
Figuring she needed her daily dose of
support, I rushed over. She met me
at the front door all excited. "You
have to see this," she exclaimed.
"Even I don't believe it."
"See what?" I asked as she led me
to the back window.
"Look," she pointed. "My husband
is actually mowing the lawn!"

'90 Minutes in Heaven'



is basis for his ministry


CNHI News Service
TRAVERSE CITY,
Mich. -- Don Piper's testi-
mony of glimpsing eternal
life after a terrible car
crash launched a ministry
that has reached millions.
He is the author of the
bestselling book "90 Min-
utes in Heaven" and a


pastor from Houston.
In 1989, Piper was in a
car crash, after which he
said emergency respon-
ders pronounced him
dead. He was later re-
vived, he said, but during
that in-between time Piper
asserts he saw heaven.
His lengthy physical re-


cover and the vivid, "life
altering" memories of
what he believes was a
heavenly experience form
the basis of his ministry's
message.
"I often say if God can
resuscitate a dead man, he
can help you overcome a
tragedy," he said.


Piper said it's difficult
to describe his experi-
ence.
"It's very frustrating to
try to describe a heavenly
place with earthly words,"
he said.
But the question of
what heaven is like is
among the most asked

queries when they hear his
story. Piper paints "word
pictures" of what he said
he saw.
"An enormous gate
made of pearl - if you've
seen the inside of an oys-
ter ... you know what that
looks like - you know
what a dazzling gate this
must be. There are simply
colors there that don't ex-
ist here," he said.
Piper said he encoun-
tered Christian believers
he knew in heaven, and
that those people "were
there to greet me at the
gate."
As for skeptics, Piper
said he would have been
among those who ques-
tioned the story if it hadn't
happened to him personal-
ly.
"I believed in heaven,"
he said. "I didn't think you
could go there and come
back and talk about it."
Ultimately, his experi-
ence is "a faith thing. So
you are either going to be-
lieve it, or not believe it,"
Piper said.
His new book, "Getting
to Heaven: Departing In-
structions for Your Life
Now," is scheduled to be
released in March and
deals with how to live a
meaningful life on earth.
Meanwhile, a film pro-
ject is underway to make
a movie based on Piper,
who continues to travel
and speak internationally.
Piper, who was 38 when
the crash occurred, is mar-
ried with three children.
Information for this sto-
ry was provided by Vanes-
sa McCray, who writes for
The Record-Eagle in Tra-
verse City, Mich.

this is the next best place

Hosting a fabulous party doesn't have to
include all of the typical calorie-laden,
unhealthy food and drink options. These
days, it's easier than ever to create great
tasting dishes that also bring good nutrition
to the party and your guests.
Here are some appetizing ideas to get you started:
* A cheese platter - Offer a wide variety of cheese slice
and chunks available for nibbling. They're flavorful an<
filling, so a little goes a long way.
* Fresh fruit - A gorgeous selection of colorful fruit wi
help satisfy sweet cravings '.. ih..r i .1!! the calories.
* Hummus - Set out several flavors of hummus and
some pita bread and flatbreads for a savory, protein-ricd
appetizer.
* Caprese salad - This Italian delight made of sliced
low-fat mozzarella cheese, sliced tomatoes and fresh
basil, drizzled with a little olive oil, will satisfy your
guests as they enjoy this delicious snack that's also
good for them.
* Spiced nuts - Nuts have good fats, protein, vitamins
and minerals. Set out bowls of roasted nuts flavored
with chili and lime, wasabi, garlic or - as a sweet
surprise - cocoa.
* Create your own original dips and spreads - like a
delicious avocado spread or a flavored, low-fat cream
cheese dip - to serve alongside whole grain flatbreads
* Mini sweets - Instead of huge pieces of fattening
cheesecake or carrot cake, make lighter versions and
bake them up mini-sized. A few bites of deliciousness
are all your happy guests will need.
These recipes from Wasa are perfect for entertaining
a large crowd - or even if you're just looking for some
new snack ideas - and feature new Wasa Thin & Crispy
Flatbreads. The thin whole grain crackers have a delicious
taste and are the perfect healthier alternative to buttery
crackers that provide a satisfying crunch. Plus, the topping
possibilities are endless- think of them as a blank canvas
for creating countless varieties of party appetizers and
every day meals that are uniquely your own. For more

MADISON - More than 100 health
care professionals and community lead-
ers from a six-county radius gathered at
North Florida Community College for
the North Florida Rural Health Care
Workforce Development Leadership
Summit on Oct. 14. The meeting was a
call to action for area leaders to share
their perspective, experiences, view-
points and resources, and to create strate-
gies toward improving the health care
workforce and the future well being of
the underserved communities of Hamil-
ton, Jefferson, Lafayette, Madison,
Suwannee and Taylor counties.
"We decided to do the summit in order
to bring together the leadership of the
six-county area to address the health care
workforce needs, both of the present and
the future, and to really help problem
solve with some of the ways to revitalize
these communities and reinforce and
make sure we have the infrastructure that
we need to keep our communities
healthy and moving forward," Dr. Mag-
gie Blackburn, Director of Rural Health
at Florida State University's College of
Medicine.
The summit, themed "Creating a
Shared Vision for Our Future", was
sponsored by North Florida Community
College, Florida State University College
of Medicine, Doctor's Memorial Hospi-
tal, Madison County Memorial Hospital,
Florida Area Health Education Centers
(AHEC), North Florida Medical Centers,
Inc., and the North Florida Rural Health
Care Workforce Development Network.
The goals of the summit were to begin
discussions that could identify potential
gaps, discover common purpose and pri-
orities, and to ultimately develop new
and innovative ideas, potential solutions
and strategies for future action, in the
area of health care workforce develop-
ment and sustainability.
According to Deidra Newman, Interim
Director of the North Florida Rural
Healthcare Workforce Development Net-
work and Director of Public Awareness
for North Florida Medical Centers, Inc.,
the summit will help "develop our com-
munities in a way that we're able to re-
tain and grow our own health care pro-
fessionals, as well as recruit health care
professionals, so that our communities
can thrive."
Summit participants took part in round
table discussions and recorded individual
and group responses about recruiting,
training and retaining a viable health care
workforce. The data collected from the
discussions will help identify the specific
needs and challenges of each county and
help area health care providers, business-
es and community members to work bet-
ter together toward unified goals.
"We had a productive day sharing in-
formation that will help provide positive
direction for our communities," said Nita
Fico, NFCC Allied Health Director. "We
were very pleased with the summit
turnout. We look forward to this being a
collaborative effort to look at the health
care workforce and figure out how we
can meet the needs of the future."


The data collected from the North Florida Rural Health Care
Workforce Development Leadership Summit will help identify

Erin Cummings, who grew up in Huntsville, Texas, says she's never followed the safe route and prefers instead to try different roles. The actress now appears on "Detroit 1-8-7" on
ABC. - Courtesy photo

By Tori Brock
CNHI News Service
HUNTSVILLE, Texas - In the past year Erin Cum-
mings has seen ancient Rome and modem day Detroit.
She is an actor - a busy one.
Cummings started out 2010 playing Sura on the Starz
network series "Spartacus: Blood and Sand," before ap-
pearing on a few episodes of the AMC drama "Mad
Men." This fall she stars in the new ABC crime drama,
"Detroit 1-8-7."
She was discovered performing in a play near Dallas
by a Los Angeles talent scout. Not limited by the whims
of those in California, she also studied Shakespeare at
the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
Cummings now plays the role of medical examiner
Dr. Abbey Ward on the Tuesday night drama, with story-
lines that focus on police work in a notoriously violent
city.
"I have the unique and interesting role of coming in to
a case and presenting a piece of information which


could turn a case on its head and send the case in a new
direction," she said.
Her role is different from other crime scene investiga-
tors. "You're not a creepy guy who hangs out in a base-
ment and cuts things open. You're a doctor, but you're
also helping solve crimes."
That role is a natural fit for Cummings, who grew up
in this Texas city not far from Houston. Her mother,
Cheryl Cummings, works at the local hospital. "During
the summer, she would put me to bed in one of the
abandoned rooms in the hospital."
Her interest in medicine grew from those experiences.
"It doesn't freak me out."
Visceral images popular on crime dramas such as the
CSI series aren't the main focus for this show, which is
more character driven.
As part of learning about her role she observed a real
autopsy in Wayne County, Mich., where the show is set.
"I think if I could stomach that, then there's not much in
the world of make believe I couldn't handle."


In her roles on "Spartacus: Blood and Sand," "Mad
Men," and even an episode of "Cold Case," Cummings
went through elaborate hair, makeup and wardrobe to
get into character.
As Dr. Abbey Ward, getting ready takes much less
time.
"It requires a different level of acting. I have to be as
natural as possible," she said. "The most difficult thing
is the dialogue. You have to know what you're talking
about. My background is Shakespeare and in preparing
for my role in the play, 'Macbeth,' I had to look up every
word and I have to do the same here. I can't rattle off
medical terms without having done my homework."
With the first season of "Detroit 1-8-7" in its early
stages, Cummings has a lot to look forward to this fall.
"It's exciting and interesting to see what can be ac-
complished if you step out of your box for a minute,"
she said. "I've taken different twists and turns in my ca-
reer, and I hope I get to continue for a long time.
Tori Brock writes for The Huntsville (Texas) Item.
