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.

Acceptance of appraisal qualification & proposal from Hale & Brannon Appraisals for the perimeter road project, and approval for the chairman to execute the agreement after legal review was accepted by commissioners during the July 19 board meeting. “The next step is to complete the appraisals then begin to negotiate with property owners to acquire the land needed for the right-ofway,” said County Coordinator Joe Gerrity. In September, commissioners approved the use of eminent domain, if needed, in the construction of the road. Gerrity said that the county will get the necessary appraisals needed about 22 and will present the offers to the home and land owners. If the owners don’t accept the offer, eminent domain may go into effect. Officials say the perimeter road will reduce congestion in the city as well as stimulate economic growth and make for safer streets by routing heavy truck traffic away from the city.The next step is to complete the appraisals then begin to negotiate with property owners to acquire the land needed for the right-of-way.”County Coordinator Joe GerrityPerimeter road moves forward Appraisals to be sought FROM THE PACIFIC TO THE SUWANNEE By Jeffry Boatrightjeffry.boatright@gaflnews.comEditor’s note: When we heard of Lewis Walters we decided that a special day wasn’t needed to honor a war hero such as him.

SEE LEW, PAGE 15A The city of Live Oak set a tentative millage rate recently of 6.2119 for the 2011-12 year which is also the rollback rate. The rollback rate is the rate needed to be set in order to bring in the same amount of revenue as the 2010-11 year. The current millage rate is 5.9835. City Finance Director Jan Parkhurst said due to the lowering of taxable values by about $3 million, the tentative millage rate was needed in order to offset the lack of that tax money coming into city coffers.

Zaxby’s will be up and running by next year, building officials say. The restaurant will be located across from Walmart and south of Huddle house on US 129 North where a Department of Transportation approved driveway already exists, according to Suwannee County Planning and Zoning Director Ron Meeks. He said Zaxby’s is currently finishing up storm water permitting through Suwannee River Water Management. Once that process is completed, the chain, famous for their chicken, will submit a site plan to the county. A building plan will also require approval by the building department before construction can begin, Meeks said. “They seem to be moving along pretty quick,” he said. Officials said the restaurant should be open for business within the next year. Construction will take six to eight months.“Indescribably Good” food coming to SC By Stephenie Linvingstonstephenie.livingston @gaflnews.comUnemployment in Suwannee County rose in June to 9.9 percent from 9.0 percent in May, and above the national average of 9.3 percent, according to state figures released last week.

In accordance with the Sunshine Law of Florida, these meetings will be open to the public. Dated this 5 th day of July, 2011. Glenda B. Williams Supervisor of Elections683215jbV Joyce Marie Taylorjoycemarie.taylor@gaflnews.comThe iWORK3 summer program has been a tremendous success so far this year. For clarification purposes iWORK3 is not an Agency for Workforce Innovation (AWI) program. Instead, it is a local summer youth program administered by the North Florida Workforce Development Board (NFWDB). The program is open to young people between the ages of 16 and 21 who meet certain eligibility requirements. Main offices for NFWDB are in Madison County and they have a satellite office in Live Oak. NFWDB serves a total of six counties in the area; Madison, Taylor, Suwannee, Lafayette, Jefferson and Hamilton counties. “This is the third consecutive year we have held a summer youth employment program,” said Program Director Cindy Heffernan. For 2011 the NFWDB has placed 125 youth in summer employment jobs ranging from local libraries, sheriff and fire departments, parks and recreation programs to city governments and economic councils, among others. Worksites are provided by local participating employers. The youth, who must be U.S. citizens, may work in most any non-hazardous position up to 32 hours per week and the best part is they earn a paycheck from Workforce. “To kick-off the program, youth and their parents attend an orientation session in their local area,” said Diane Head, NFWDB Public Relations, Special Projects and Employer Services Director. “Potential worksites also attend similar sessions. These orientations are designed to provide the information needed for youth and worksites to determine if they want to participate in the program.” Later, Head said, each youth is interviewed by iWork3 staff to determine their eligibility and suitability to be accepted into the program, which provides them the experience of a job interview. They are required to attend a one-week work readiness training prior to being placed at a worksite. Throughout the week, local bank representatives help the youth open bank accounts and give them advice on money management. Information about pregnancy care centers and other programs are also available. The youth earn a CPR/OSHA credential/certification during the week of work readiness classes. At the end of the week, the participants are matched with their worksites through a process similar to “speed dating,” where each youth spends a few minutes with each worksite to get to know one another. Youth are placed into worksites for six weeks. Throughout the summer they also attend iWORK3 program sessions that include continued workshops on work readiness skills, resume building and tips for job searching. They are also enrolled into Florida Ready to Work and they work during the summer to build their skill level in Reading for Information, Locating Information, and Applied Mathematics. At the end of the summer, they are given the opportunity to take the final Ready to Work assessments and earn the credential, which gives them incentive to do so. iWORK3 is an excellent way for young people to be a part of real-life work situations while gaining valuable career experience.

If the constraints are not enough, write a letter to the editor (guidelines for letters appear below). I have talked to several people who have expressed concern about the Crapps’ property. The main concern seems to be that the cost to maintain the property would be a negative. I would suggest that those that have any drought about the purchase get involved with the FRIENDS OF THE PARK. Help make a negative into a positive. There are several things that would raise money for the project at very little cost. Rent the stable to some one who wants to do horse trail rides. Create walking trails through the property using free chips from the city. Make tent camping spots with fire pits that could be rented. The pasture could be a golf driving range. I am sure that if WE ALL put our heads together there are a lot of bright minds in Live Oak with great ideas. Lets stop dwelling on yesterday and the reasons that we should not buy the property. Lets move on to tomorrow and what we can do to make this a positive for Live Oak. I am so tired of people with no clue commenting about the failures of public education. The results a student achieves are in direct correlation to the effort he or she puts in. The true responsibility belongs with the parents and the students, not the school system. Today the school system feeds "your" children breakfast and lunch,drives them to school, takes them home, and disciplines them because many parents won't. Quit blaming others for your failure as a parent! Instead of complaining, why don't you cook your child a nice breakfast and then sit down and read a book to them while they eat it. Perhaps you could find one about personal responsibility. & Rant Rave OUR VIEW Suwannee Democrat Suwannee DemocratMYRA C. REGAN Publisher JEFF WATERS Editor Elections can be a nasty battle for whatever office or political action is on the ballot. It’s no different now leading up to the special election on Aug. 16 which will determine Suwannee County’s wet or dry status. Suwannee Dry and Suwannee Yes! have both said publicly they are running a clean campaign and won’t participate in or condone the tomfoolery we have seen and heard of lately such as stolen or destroyed signs, or protesting a church service. We don’t condone these shenanigans either. However, we are conscious of the fact that these things happen just about every election, so this shouldn’t be blamed on drunkeness as has been suggested. Dowling House You may have noticed a checkmark beside editorial objective number three above. We set out to see the Dowling House go under public control, whether that be city or county government or a civic group, so the historic nature of the home would be kept. Allied Community Trust purchased the home and restored it awhile back. They ran a restaurant out of the home to cover expenses and upkeep. Due to the ill health of one of the board members, Allied reluctantly put the place up for sale. Allied still owns the home and currently leases it to Mickey L’s Italian and Seafood restaurant. Allied said they aren’t just going to sell the home to anyone. They are seeking a buyer looking to keep the historic nature of the home. The owners of Mickey L’s are doing just that. We hear the food’s good too. The checkmark will stay as long as Allied, or someone as historically conscious such as Mickey L’s owners, owns the building.Members of the Suwannee Democrat editorial board are Myra C.

ONLINEOPPORTUNITY QUESTION OF THE WEEKPoll Results(7-22-11)Yes -63% No -47% Are you tired of hearing about the wet/dry issue?To the Editor: In his recent article “Development Authority Supports Going Wet,” Chairman Tom Alcorn cites that this legislation is strictly for economic reasons. Before the citizens vote, I would like them to think about a couple of things. A fact to consider: A person feels the effects of, say, a oneounce shot of liquor more quickly than he would if he had consumed a 12-ounce can of beer. It’s just a question of how much the stomach can hold. Hard liquor just seems to fit the ticket best when it comes to producing that alcohol buzz in the brain as quickly as possible. Most travelers on the interstate have a destination—usually beyond Suwannee County. These travelers will read billboards advertising businesses that offer hard liquor, such as chain-type restaurants. Local merchants would hope that visitors will stay in the county and do more shopping. They might, of course, but remember that these travelers have somewhere else to get to, so after their “stiff drinks” they are going to get right back on the highway after drinking alcohol that, ounce-for-ounce, packs a much stronger punch than beer or wine. Once mid-priced chain restaurants have been opened, the next logical step for business growth would be the construction of bars, nightclubs, and liquor stores, whose presence would drastically change the social climate that characterizes our community. Development authorities should consider other options for business planning. A better alternative would be to establish a dinner theater or a water park. As those who work for the sheriff’s department can tell you, we have had enough alcohol-related problems without legislating hard liquor sales. So vote NO! Dale CooperFrom our readers SEE RANT & RAVE, PAGE 12A A project the City has been working on is finally complete. For several years we have been working toward the new water system for the City of Live Oak. A couple of weeks ago, the valves were turned on to the new system and the switch over was completed without even a notice by residents. As you can imagine, there were some problems. The system has had to undergo some “tweaking” but with a lot of work by city staff and our engineers, the system is operating well. There are issues that still need attention but are being resolved. As I have relayed to you on many occasions, this is an important step forward not only for you the residents, but for future business development. Before, the city could only provide a limited amount of potable water. The old system was sufficient for our current needs but did not allow for substantial expansion. Now the amount of water available is almost endless. The city has postured itself to provide for water far into the future. I can’t impress on you how important this is to future business development and growth. Some have complained that the city does nothing to attract business and jobs and ask what the city is doing to help with economic development. Staff has put in literally thousands of hours bringing this project to completion. Millions of dollars, most of it “free money”, and low interest loans, paid for your new water system. I commend the City Council for their farsightedness in making this water system happen. The Council, along with those at City Hall, are responsible for looking out for the best interest of our city for the present and future. They lived up to their responsibilities and are to be commended. Diane and I went outside last Thursday morning to hopefully get a glimpse of the space shuttle’s reentry. We did not see the shuttle but we did hear the “sonic boom” as it entered the atmosphere. Many of us grew up with the space program and it was a little saddening to see an end of the space shuttle era. The space program has been very expensive over the years. It is a little hard to justify some of the programs like going to the moon. Many innovations and much technology have been developed during the space program, much of which has had a positive impact on our everyday lives. It bothers me that we have turned it over to the Russians. I’m sure space exploration will continue to be a focus of our country in the future. Have you heard about Flea Across Florida? If you have not, you will. This event will be the longest yard sale in Florida. It will begin in historic Live Oak and run 272 miles to Pensacola on Highway 90. It is fashioned after the yard sale that begins in Georgia and runs north. This event is sponsored by the Live Oak Partnership and the Suwannee County Tourist Development Council. Barney Everett, owner of the Big Wheel Marketplace, has been feverishly working on this project for months. Flea Across Florida is beginning to take momentum in many communities along the US 90 corridor. Booths will be available for rent in Live Oak. People are encouraged to make plans to set up yard sale booths along the way also. Front yards and in parking lots of businesses (with permission) are good spots for you to set up. This event could draw thousands to Live Oak and all along the route. Folks can begin their “picking” in Live Oak and continue on to Pensacola. Flea Across Florida will take place September 9, 10 & 11. I can envision this as becoming one of the premier events in the State of Florida in the future. For more info call Barney at 386-364-1006 or visit I ask all businesses to “step back and look”. Look at your store fronts. Do they have a look that would be attractive to shoppers or just a person that might just be walking by? Are your window displays eye-catching and pleasing enough to draw folks into your business? Are your store windows clean and your window displays appealing? Do you keep your entryways swept and the trash picked up? Is your merchandize orderly and easily viewed. Is your signage of a quality that would attract notice? Does your awning or storefront need pressure washing or painting? Are your upstairs windows cracked or the molding falling out? If you don’t know the answers to these questions, then” step back and look” for answers. I single out the Brown Lantern, since I am across the street from it, as a good example. Raleigh has his employees out every morning picking up paper and sweeping the front and parking lot of his restaurant. The front of his business says, come on in, this is a nice and clean place to eat. There is help with improving your business operations and appearance.

But being a Christian comes with responsibilities. As a Christian we are responsible toƒ 1) Study O ur Bible E very D ay! The Bible is Gods road map to Heaven. The Bible is Gods Revelation to man (II Pet. 1:21). It is trustworthy and dependable. The Bible will strengthen our faith. (Romans 10:17) 2) Attend Worship Every Week! Assembling with other saints is NOT optional (Heb. 10:24-26). We know the early church assembled (Acts 20:7, I Cor. 16:1-2). Even a study of historical writers will inform us of their gathering. Why wouldnt we want to meet with other saints? 3) Bring Other Souls T o Christ! Jesus commanded us to GoŽ and preach (Mark 16:15-16). In Matthews account he said to teach others to teach others. In Acts 1:8 Jesus told the Apostles to go to the Ends of the earth.Ž Have we been born again (John 3:3-5)? Are we teaching others (I Pet.3:21)? Are we fulfilling the Great Commission? 680752lcv FOOD FOR THOUGHT Ken Campbell, Evangelist Burlington Santa Fe Church of Christ weeks away. To each of them, my love and thanks for including me in all your celebrations. The gorgeous roses from one agent’s garden, as well as the beautiful cake she made for me were enjoyed for the next few days, and the gifts from the staff will most definitely be enjoyed for a long time. God bless you all! Thanks also to my neighbors who continue to watch out for me. One of them, Don Dillon, was kind enough to bush-hog a good portion of my property so that it didn’t quite get back to its jungle state, for which I am truly grateful. Once I get my riding mower in “cutting” condition again, I’ll be back “on track”. And it was reassuring to hear from one of my nephews who was deployed in June. He can’t tell me just where he is, except that he’s been very busy and he and his unit is doing fine. My greatnephew (his Mom is my niece) is home from the Navy on leave, has been reassigned from the carrier he’s been on for the last couple of years to a Navy station in California, and has been very busy traveling to various relatives in the southeast. Hopefully he’ll have time to swing over and visit me before he heads back. Welcome home, Joey! Looking forward to seeing you soon. Also, now that half the year is gone, I’m asking folks to start thinking about the coming holidays. Yes, I know Thanksgiving and Christmas are still a few months away, but with the economy still so fragile, I want to include a reminder of the hundreds of folks in our community who are still struggling to make ends meet. So please start to think about project “Toys For Kids” down here in our end of Suwannee County, and maybe think about putting a couple of dollars away towards helping the good people who work so hard to make sure the families and kids in the south end of our county enjoy the holidays as much as the rest of us. Please don’t confuse this “Toys For Kids” project with “Toys For Tots”, the project headed up by the Marines. “Toys For Kids” is a local charity focusing on the children in the Branford area, which includes O’Brien, McAlpin, etc. Help this group provide a good food basket for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, maybe a toy or two under the tree for those families who won’t be able to do that this year, maybe coats or shoes for the kids. I’ll have more info as we go along. But please, if there is a favorite local charity you support, start thinking about it now. From an old “Reader’s Digest” book: “It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.” J.K. Rowling “Men don’t care what’s on TV. They only care what else is on TV.” Jerry Seinfeld “Some people are so open-minded their brains fall out.” Rick Warren “Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.” Mason Cooley “Life may be a highway, but I’ve lost my maps and GPS. If something neat turns up along the way, I am stopping to take pictures.” Matthew Wolfe “I’m a great believer in luck, and the harder I work, the more of it I have.” Stephen Leacock Have a wonderful, blessed week!

n f b r f f r f t t 684927amv R ecently, the Branford Office of the Suwannee County Health Department was forced to close due to state budget issues. For those former patients of the health department, and for anyone in Branford that needs affordable, local access to high quality primary health care, there is one choice: Palms Medical Group. Palms Medical Group offers a variety of services to our patients. Here at Palms, we offer same day scheduling. Theres no need to wait days for an appointment. If you arent feeling well or want to establish as a new patient its as simple as calling us the morning of the day you want to come in, and well get you scheduled for that day. We offer a full range primary care services for children and adults, including sick visits, physicals and well visits, and management of chronic illnesses. We can also perform minor surgical and minor trauma procedures.

Call me or George at City Hall for information about this grant program. In these trying economic times, it’s important that you pursue every advantage you can to put a little more “jingle” in your register. Last week, we met with FDOT and the tree contractor about the downtown tree planting program. The planting will take place within the next couple of weeks. The money is in place. The program cost is approximately $17,000, all of which will be paid by FDOT. We again have to go back to FDOT for final approval. As I have relayed to you in the past, FDOT has many regulations and restrictions on where and what type of plantings can take place on their right of ways. We went through all of this due diligence in preparation for the program. I was interested in reading an article by David Holmes, Extension Director for Marion County, in Saturday’s Gainesville Sun supporting the planting of palm trees in our region. I think you will like what you see when the planting is complete. The quarterly meeting of the Suwannee River League of Cities was hosted by the City of Live Oak and held at the Florida Sheriff’s Boys Ranch. It was a great success. I had many positive comments about the event. I thank all of the local businesses that donated door prizes for the meeting. We had over 100 elected officials from the local, state and national level represented plus staff members from area municipalities. The Ranch staff was great. Their hospitality was wonderful and they put on a fine feed. Very few of the attendees had ever visited the Boys Ranch. They were all very pleased and complimentary. A big THANK YOU goes out to Youth Ranches President Roger Bouchard and his staff for making this a great event. I also thank city staffers for all their help. Take care in the heat. I’m not fussing about how hot it has been especially after the cold winters we have experienced. I love it. I went to a cookout last week and the ice in my cooler spoiled because it was so hot. Just kidding. I’m not kidding about wearing your seat belts. It’s the law and your life and safety depends on wearing your seatbelt.

They each exhibited great skills during the final exam Wednesday evening, under the watchful eye of instructor Tabitha Sibel. In just three weeks, the graduates will return for their National Certification Test. John Cherry of Suwannee County Fire Rescue showed no fear as Patricia Robinson demonstrated proper procedures in phlebotomy. The 2011 phlebotomy graduates are all smiles after successfully completing their final examination. From Left: Bee Jaye Loper, Patricia Robinson, Latoya A.

By Colleen Cody Healthy Start Coordinator August 1-7 is World Breastfeeding Week As a mom, you want to do everything you can to have a healthy baby and protect them from illness and harm. Did you know that breastfeeding your baby can keep them from getting sick? Did you know that breastfeeding can help you get your girlish figure back sooner and help prevent diseases in later years? Surprising isn’t it?  Breastfeeding has been shown to make babies healthier: In infants: less problems with ear infection, stomach viruses, diarrhea, colds, asthma, and obesity. In Moms: less type 2 diaNEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT Breastfeeding, for the health of you and your baby Estate Sale August 6th at 8 a.m. Home of the late Mary Bell Matthews 1104 Coliseum Ave Call Carolyn at 208-4828 for more information. 685349dsv betes, breast and ovarian cancer and postpartum depression.  Breast milk has disease-fighting cells called antibodies that help protect infants from germs, illness, and even SIDS. Infant formula tries to duplicate breast milk but it’s just not the same.  The U.S. Surgeon General recommends that babies be fed breast milk only for the first six months of life and start solid foods at six months. I know you’re thinking formula is the same as breastfeeding. For most babies, breast milk is easier to digest than formula. Their stomachs have a harder time digesting the proteins in formula because they are made from cow's milk. Breastfeeding is normal and healthy for infants and moms. This is hurricane season and having to feed a baby during an emergency is another good reason to breastfeed. Emergencies destroy what is ‘normal,’ leaving moms struggling to feed and care for their infants. Think about Hurricane Katrina or the tornadoes in Alabama. What did those moms do when they didn’t have clean water to make a bottle or wash it out, and had no way to heat a bottle up? Breast feeding moms don’t have those problems. Their milk is ready to go and is always the right temperature. So, the next time you get pregnant; consider breastfeeding for the health of you and your baby.

FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2011 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 12A Q: We're planning an overseas vacation. Any tips for dental hygiene? A: The first piece of advice is to schedule a cleaning and a thorough dental exam at least a couple of weeks before leaving on your trip. Knowing your mouth is in good shape before you leave can ease any anxiety about having to deal with a problem while you're abroad. If you have a major procedure coming up, have it finished before you go. Or schedule it for your return. You don't want to have to deal with a dentist who doesn't know you and whom you don't know if you have an emergency in another country. Have your dentist's office phone number with you if you need to contact him in an emergency. Certainly when you're packing, don't forget your dental equioment: toothbrush, floss, toothpaste and whatever items you may use regularly. Remember that in these days of the TSA and heightened security, you may not be able to bring toothpaste or mouthwash on a flight in a carry-on. And don't be tempted to rinse your mouth with tap water from the plane's rest room. Everyone's situation, of course, is different. If you're planning an overseas trip, talk to your dentist about what you, specifically, should have with you and what you should do if an emergency arises.

Ordained harbingers of doom quoting scriptures in an attempt to persuade Suwannee County citizens that the sale, I repeat, “THE SALE” of alcoholic beverages is a sin. I am a born again Christian, a student of God’s Word and no where, I repeat again, “NO WHERE” in His word have I been able to become convinced that the manufacture or sale of alcoholic beverages is a sin. Granted, excessive consumption is repeatedly indicated as sin in His Word. As I sift through various scriptures concerning this matter I am drawn to one in particular: Eze 13:3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! It would, therefore seem to me that Our Heavenly Father is using His words to chastise the nay sayers. If local churches are going to get so involved with the wet dry issue and perhaps hurt the counties growth and tax revenues they should pony up and start paying taxes most of the larger churches are run like businesses anyway. I have lived in this county since 1997. I would like to know how handicapped people are supposed to enjoy the springs and the river that this county is so famous for. You cannot get a wheelchair down to the river you cannot get a wheelchair down to the springs. Fences are put up across grassy areas where wheelchairs can get through and all you are left with are stairs. Every place else has to be handicapped assessable so why are not any of county parks not? Dogs are allowed to run free and crap where ever they like. People drink beer, get drunk then swing off the swings from the trees. They get to enjoy the park, so why can’t the handicapped of Suwannee County? Frankly I would like to get in the water instead of sitting up at a table for 3-4 hours waiting for everyone else to get done swimming, but I can’t because its not nowhere in this county is it safe to take a wheelchair down and if you say a boat ramp your nuts. I’m not losing control and breaking my neck going down a 90 degree incline. Editor's note: We've been told there are viewing areas but it is hard to get constant access to area springs. When Little River Spring was renovated it became handicap accessible. Part of the problem is river levels. If its not the government telling us what we can and can not do, its the Christians! If possession of hard liquor is legal, and purchasing it is legal, why do some people want to make it harder to get? The government tried to do this in the 1920's. Now, it's the Christians trying to continue the policy! A contract is a contract. If you were to finance something and times got tough for you, the company isn't going to lower your payments or rate. In contrast, the company can't tell you they're having financial difficulties and will be raising your rate or payment. State employees began their employment and financial planning based on the agreement of retirement benefits at that time. 3% later in retirement isn't the same as that loss NOW, when people were planning on that as a part of their income and especially with today's economic times. Both spouses working for the state= 6% gone TWICE a month. Teachers in many surrounding counties haven't received a raise in over 7 years. Unlike many professions with similar pay, teachers have multiple degrees and student loans, work hours after school and on weekends grading papers and doing lesson plans, and much of our summers attending workshops and taking classes for re-certification, and much of our own money on classroom supplies. I love "touching lives," but also have to "pay my bills." For those giving negative comments, probably come from Obama and Scott lovers or are already set in their retirement. After many weeks of reading the “Rant & Rave” articles in the Suwannee Democrat, I have come to the unavoidable conclusion that: If you have lived in Suwannee County for a long time: and you have disagreed with our elected and our appointed officials many times but in general have found them to be willing to discuss and explain their decisions and their opinions frankly: If you have found Suwannee County to be a beautiful place and a great place to live: If some of the finest people you have ever met live here: If with all its bumps and warts, there’s no other place in which you would consider living: If you appreciate the tireless and thankless efforts of our churches to hold all of us to higher moral standards, as I have and as I do: Then face it, you ain’t worth spit!! At the risk of being yet another armchair theologian, the American evangelical movement has long had a self serving political agenda based on select passages & prophecies put together by the Rev. Darby in the mid 1800's. This is not an attempt to quote scripture word for word, interpret,condone or condemn. It is a self apparent question: Does not the 2nd beast of Revelation represent the union of religion and state? Failing gov'ts historically conscript religion to prop themselves up, always with bad results. Whether on legal or moral grounds this is a dubious path to choose. Hopefully this is a civil & reasonable view on the liquor issue. A yes vote is a vote against big gov't. as well as for determining your own economic future by putting us own equal footing with the rest of the state. Our local gov't. has long ignored the intent to to prevent any one religious faith or sect being sanctioned over another. Not all faiths are so adamant on the subject. If your faith forbids alcohol, follow your beliefs, it's that simple. This is a personal choice & no particular religious belief, regardless, can be permitted to influence the law in this manner. Most scripture warns of excess, not prohibition. Please do the right thing and allow folks the chance to do better for themselves here by voting yes. I am so glad and fortunate to be born in the United States of America, with all the freedoms we have, one being freedom of speech. Let me borrow a line from the Suwannee Wet side of this campaign "Let Freedom Count." I thoroughly agree, but answer me one question how can freedom of speech be heard or shared when the road signs that are being put up by the Suwannee Dry campaign are torn down and destroyed and you turn around and find the opposing side campaign sign put in it's place. Many county citizens have donated their hard earned money to purchase those signs to be used in a race where each side has the right to be heard. If you are dissatisfied with the way our federal government in going...just look around, Suwannee County is just a few steps behind. Corruption and civil disobedience starts small like the guilty ones who are vandalizing property that doesn't even belong to them. Pretty soon it will be a two headed monster that cannot be controlled. Do you want this for your children and grandchildren? Wake UP, Suwannee County, Make your vote count...Vote No! I believe the Statement in last weeks Paper was,"Maybe we can drag them in off the interstate for a nice meal and a Continued From Page 6A drink and sell them a paper." that may be a little paraphrased. What an idea! Let us drag them in, ply them with alcohol and send them driving on their way! Maybe rather than texting they will read the paper and drive! What a comedy. It's shameful some churches got no problem breaking the law by placing signs at polling stations & other public property. Worse, elected officials are turning a blind eye. With our track record of losing lawsuits this is a dangerous road and it will cost us, not them. They either don't pay taxes or collect big paychecks funded by taxes. Your elected & paid to run a gov't. (poorly), not people lives. A church is for spiritual guidance & comfort. If we stick to the job description we'll be better off. Where did the drunk driver purchase his alcohol? Whether here or Lake City, or Jasper, there is still gonna be drunk drivers. I think it is totally ridiculous that the local Chamber of Commerce needs to poll its members t see if they should support an initiative that will stimulate the economy. What a joke. This basically tells me that the Chamber and its Directors have no clue whatsoever what is going on in this community. Just think what would happen if every politician did this every time they had to decide whether to support an issue. I encourage all local businesses and (current) Chamber members to pay close attention to this. Needless to say, I am severely disappointed in our Chamber. On this wet and dry issue. I don’t understand why Mr. Bailey and Mr. Musgrove waited so long to say something. If they are so against alcohol being sold in this county that bad, then why didn’t they start their own campaign a long time ago to stop the sale of all alcohol? Why say you are tired of sitting on the sidelines, no one kept you there. Why did you wait till now and how can we be a dry county when you can already buy alcoholic beverages? So I guess that must mean we are just damp. I sure hope this one gets in there, it doesn’t matter if every precinct was in a church facility, not church, people are going to vote the way they want too. And I agree with the person talking about the tattoos and some of the ways our young people dress, the entire subject is based on morals and you are being awfully lead, if you think it will help our economy by going wet. Our country was founded on freedom to worship God. And I am sure not a rich ole dude trying to keep our country stagnant but I believe in doing what is right and if the rich, ole white dudes and the rednecks can keep it dry then more power to them. Shame on the Development Authority, and if the Chamber of Commerce goes for it then they will have one less member. My signs are on my property, and by the way, some of the yes signs are on county property, so look in to that. Thank you. Yes I would really like the Suwannee Democrat to put more news as far as national and local and statewide. Because the paper really sucks. It would be a lot more helpful. I would rather go and pay $2 for a Florida Times Union than to pay the little 50¢ for a Suwannee Democrat. Thank you, have a nice day. Okay I was just calling about the yes or no vote about wet or dry. I wonder who is paying for the signs that say no, it is probably the liquor stores surrounding Suwannee county who is paying for those. And the ones that are paying for the vote yes, are the businesses that want liquor to come in. A friend of mine, we call ourselves the “bootleggers” because every so often we take people’s requests to purchase liquor or them. On one trip to a neighboring county, we spent over $500 for their purchases. That was $500 for one trip. That could have all stayed in Suwannee County. We make probably three or four trips a year, so that is over $2,000 if we spend that much every trip. Thank you and everyone vote for your choice. I am in favor of wet. Thank you.

Sowerby, UF Regional Dairy Extension Pouring milk on morning cereal is a daily ritual for many Americans. But for the 12 percent or more of Americans who perceive themselves as having lactose intolerance that is probably not the case. Lactose is the sugar found in milk composed of two simple sugars, glucose and galactose, bonded together. To break that bond, an enzyme called lactase is normally produced by the human stomach lining. However, in a significant number of Americans lactase production is low to totally lacking. Without lactase to digest to it, lactose can cause symptoms ranging from gas and bloating to diarrhea, which are collectively called lactose intolerance. Fortunately lactose intolerance is not a food allergy which typically requires complete avoidance. Lactase tends to be a “use it or lose it” enzyme. Someone who ceases to drink milk and eat dairy products for several days may suddenly find it uncomfortable to do so when they resume because their natural lactase production has decreased dramatically. Medications or illness may also cause an onset of lactose intolerance. The good news is some cases of lactose intolerance are temporary. By drinking a little milk and/or eating small quantities of dairy products daily and gradually increasing amounts up to three servings a day, lactase production by the stomach lining can sometimes be jumpstarted and/or increased again. If this does not work, there are still alternatives for consuming milk and other dairy products: 1. Lactose-free milk offers all the nutrients of regular milk (except sugar) and is now available in most dairy cases. Remember lactose is a sugar and generally comprises 4.9 percent of milk. Cow’s milk is about 87 percent water. The rest is solids – protein, lactose, fat, and minerals. Removing the lactose (like removing the fat) inevitably changes the flavor. 2. Lactase (the enzyme) pills are available and if taken when milk and other dairy products are consumed, will act like natural lactase in digesting lactose. 3. Yogurt, buttermilk, and other cultured dairy products contain friendly bacteria that help digest lactose. 4. Aged cheeses such as cheddar and Swiss are naturally low in lactose. Why not simply forget about consuming dairy products if you have lactose intolerance? Milk is the No. 1 food source of calcium, vitamin D and potassium – three nutrients of public health concern (meaning most of us do not eat enough of these nutrients to meet our daily requirements). Milk is also an excellent source of phosphorus, magnesium, vitamin A and riboflavin. The US Department of Agriculture Dietary Guidelines recommends three servings of dairy products daily. One serving equals:  8 ounces (one cup) of milk.  1 to 1.5 ounces (about 3 or 4 cheese cubes) of natural cheeses like cheddar and mozzarella.  A 6or 8-ounce container of yogurt. Adding milk or yogurt to your cereal, whether you are lactose intolerant or not, is an effective way to start your day by providing your body with nutrients capable of building strong bones, avoiding hypertension and a host of other positive effects. If you are lactose intolerant, try the alternatives above to enjoy dairy products for both their taste and health benefits. Extension programs are open to all people regardless of race, color, sex, religion, disability or national origin.

EXTENSION UPDATE Alternatives for lactose intolerance Comprehensive Community Services took the first step this month to help the community recognize the growing role they play as the area’s primary service provider for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The CCS membership recently voted to change their well known name to The Arc North Florida to reflect their organizations growing presence in Suwannnee, Hamilton, Lafayette, Columbia and Baker Counties. The organization was originally formed in 1981 by a group of local parents with a vision of seeing their children with intellecual and developmental disabilities fully included in the local community. According to Bobbie Lake, Executive Director of The Arc North Florida, “Over the last 30 years, our mission has expanded from raising awareness of the abilities of the people we serve to an increasing role of providing training and support services to individuals that want to live more independently.” Jeanette Clark, a Board member of The Arc North Florida and the parent of a child in the program, said “I think the name change will help our organization to be more recognizable in the community. It will reduce the confusion that the public sometimes has about who we are and what we do, especially the growing number of families who need information about getting help for their children with special needs.” The local organization expects that their new name will help them brand with the over 740 other chapters of The Arc throughout the United States. The Arc North Florida, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit company and a sponsored agency of the United Way of Suwannee Valley. For more information about organization, you may contact Bobbie Lake at 386-362-7143. Comprehensive Community Services is now The Arc North Florida North Florida Community College is hitting the road and bringing information directly to each of its six-county service areas over the next few weeks.

The annual two day event has taken place at the SOSMP only three times but is already one of the most enjoyed and respected events among competitors and judges alike. “This is a very well organized and supported event,” Master Judge Mac McLaughlin of Tampa stressed. Florida Bar-B-Que Association president-elect Dana Hillis agrees. “It is one of the best locations as well and the setting is great,” he added. Hillis explained that while there are monetary prizes awarded and the Smokin’ on the Suwannee payout to the competitors is roughly $13,000, his craft is still a labor of love. “This weekend could easily cost me $1,000 to compete,” he said. McLaughlin added that the judges are strictly volunteer and receive no compensation, but like the competitors, they love it. In order to judge a FloridaBarB-Que Association sanctioned event such as Smokin’ on the Suwannee, a judge must first become certified and most of the judges are FBA certified. In order to maintain certification, one must judge a minimum of two events each year. According to Live Oak’s Johnny Wooley, father of event organizer and local Damon Wooley, competitors have the opportunity to win in several categories. They prepare chicken, ribs, pulled pork and brisket for the judges to sample and score. A grand champion is also selected from the field of competitors and it is possible for the overall grand champion to not win first prize in any of the individual categories. “Consistency pays,” Johnny Wooley commented. Dana Hillis of Big Papa’s Country Kitchen won the coveted Grand Champion award for this event and took first prize in the ribs category. Reserved Grand Champion was awarded to The Barbeque Crew. The Ross Team was named first prize winner of the chicken category while Stump Monsters and Git-R-Smoked won the pork and brisket categories respectively. Jimmy Prevatt, an event sponsor, stated the competitors are really great people who take their craft seriously. “Until they turn in the last piece of meat, they’re all business,” Prevatt said. “But after that, they really have a great time.” Johnny Wooley agreed. “This is a good event,” he said. “It offers a family friendly atmosphere and the FBA encourages all FBA sanctioned events to be family oriented.” Wooley added that while competing in an out of state event, his son Damon recognized that Suwannee County would be an ideal location to hold such an event. After much work and commitment, Damon’s vision has become a reality.Smokin’ on the Suwannee a huge successContinued From Page 1A extraordinary. Instead, he will tell you how blessed he is and affectionately share some memories that he holds dear. Overlooking the Suwannee River from his Dowling House apartment at the Advent Christian Village, Lew peacefully reminisces the twists and turns in his life. Lew readily shares his appreciation of those he has known throughout his 92 years. Instead of sharing how he narrowly escaped death during World War II, he will tell you how well someone treated him, how wonderful the Navy has been to him or how helpful the Veterans Administration has been. It doesn’t take long to realize that Lew loves and appreciates his fellow man. The Atlanta native spent much of his youth in Charleston, S.C. At the age of 14, he moved to Massachusetts to live with his grandparents. While living in Massachusetts, Lew was an active sea scout member and his admiration for scout leader Louie Franklin Jones is quite obvious. However, his scout leader’s daughter, Merideth Atwood, also gained young Lew’s affection. Early on, Lew and the young Miss Atwood recognized that they were soul mates. “She chased me until I caught her,” Lew said with a subtle grin. After graduating high school, Lew became aware of the fact that jobs were limited. After all, the country was still feeling the lingering effects of the Great Depression. “Instead of my family having to feed and clothe me, I decided to join the Navy,” Lew said. “It seemed like a good deal to me.” Lew’s military travels carried him to the Pacific Ocean aboard the USS Nevada, a ship that had been around since World War I. The year was 1941 and for some time, the Nevada had been afloat in a Hawaiian paradise. That place was called Pearl Harbor and the climate was nice for December. However, paradise was about to be transformed into a war zone. “We had no warning,” Lew said. “We had no knowledge of what was coming. The Japanese planes flew in so low that I could see the pilots with grins on their faces. Below the planes, torpedos were attached and they were dropping them.” Without expression, Lew goes on to recall that his captain was ashore, as well as the executive officer. His 1st lieutenant was the senior officer aboard and someone had to use their sidearm to shoot the lock off of a door so they could retrieve ammunition to fend off the attack that was already underway. The USS Nevada received battle scars that day.Lew Walters served during the Pearl Harbor attackContinued From Page 1A already exercising efficient practices while constantly seeking new ways to sustain potential challenges ahead. The Suwannee County School Board set the tentative budget as well as the tentative millage rate during a Tuesday hearing at the School Board office. The tentative millage was set at 8.086 and exceeds the roll back rate by 1.65 percent. The rollback rate is the rate needed to bring in the same amount of funds as the prior year. A required local effort is set by the state at 5.588 mills, which is an increase of .169 from the 2010-11 rate. The capital outlay millage rate remained the same as the 2010-11 rate at 1.500 mills. The discretionary operating millage, which is set by the School Board, will remain at .748 mills. There is a 0.250 discretionary critical needs operating millage that may be levied in 201112 by a supermajority vote of the Suwannee County School Board, as previously approved by the voters. Should the Board take such a measure, $383,582 in additional funds would be received from the state.$3.6 Million budget gap loomingContinued From Page 1A A torpedo delivered a piercing blow to her side, while additional bombs took their toll on the oldest ship that set in the Harbor that infamous day. “We got bomb hits,” Lew commented. “The California and the Arizona were near us. The California sunk and the Arizona capsized. We had fire aboard the ship and were taking on water. The front part of the ship was flooded.” The Nevada survived the attack to go on to see the United States triumph. Of the seven battleships lined up, the 27,500 ton Nevada was the only one able to get underway, but due to her extensive damage, orders came to dry dock at a place that is now known by many as Nevada Point. America had been wholeheartedly pulled into World War II and an unscathed Lew Walters would reunite with his beloved Nevada after she was mended and reconditioned. The Nevada returned to duty in February of 1942 with Lew on crew. The sailors aboard took their mighty ship to Alaska, supporting the capture of Attu and reached British waters in time to assist in the Normandy invasion. The mighty guns of the Nevada later attacked and pummeled Japanese airfields and troop concentrations. She withstood fierce battle and refused to give up. While the Nevada was straddled by enemy fire, she and her crew endured, even as a Japanese kamikaze pilot crashed into the Nevada. The Nevada was decommissioned in 1946 and later used for atomic bomb testing and artillery testing. There is a hint of sadness in the voice of Lew when he tells that the Nevada now rests in the deepest waters of the Pacific. He had sojourned with the Nevada through her most perilous moments. However, the camaraderie of the crew from the Nevada remains strong to this day. Every year, Lew joins his old crew for a USS Nevada reunion. Last year, when they met in Reno, Nev., there were only 50 members in attendance from a crew that once consisted of about 2,000 fighting men. “We’ll be in New Orleans this year,” Lew said with a touch of excitement. When asked if he plans to attend, he bluntly responded, “Of course I plan to attend.” During his tenure aboard the Nevada, Lew had an up close and personal experience with history in the making. He saw firsthand what most of us rely on history to teach through books and documentaries. Given all of his experiences it is his true love though that he speaks of so fondly. Yes, the scout leader’s daughter, Merideth, became his wife of 67 wonderful years. After they were married in 1943, Merideth Walters joined the Navy to be closer to her husband. Lew explains that his time in service prepared him for a career after the war. He spent many years working around engineering projects and completed his career working at the Florida Power Plant in Crystal River, before becoming a part of our community roughly 30 years ago. “We enjoyed life,” he said. “My wife and I, we were blessed.” A widower since 2009, Lew continues to enjoy the life that today offers and the memories yesterday gave. “Each day, I get out and see people and help who I can.” he explains. “That is the name of the game. Sometimes I give them a ride to where they need to go.” Perhaps the days of Lew Walters sailing about the Pacific on the Nevada are now in the history books but the days of his positive impact and inspiration on others are still history in the making.

J J By Corey Daviscorey.davis@gaflnews.comTRENTON-Like his friends and teammates, Corbin Wiggins, 17, should have been spending his summer on the basketball court or out on the baseball field. Instead, Wiggins was forced to sit on the sideline and cheer on his teammates. According to the Gilchrist County Journal, while undergoing a routine sports physical recently, Wiggins’ pediatrician noticed a mass and referred him to a radiologist. Wiggins was sent to a urologist, who confirmed mixed germ cell carcinoma generated from testicular cancer. As if that wasn’t enough to deal with, while recovering from surgery which removed the mass, his family learned that he had four types of cancer, three of which can be treated with chemotherapy, while the fourth is more aggressive and growing rapidly and already into his lymph nodes around his kidneys. Wiggins will have another surgery August 9 and may have to start chemotherapy after that depending on the results. He will be in the hospital four to five days at least according to his surgeon. An account has been set up to help cover his medical expenses at Capital City Bank in Trenton, while Drummond Community Bank is collecting gas and restaurant cards. According to Trenton baseball coach Todd Bryant anyone wishing to help should make out checks to Capital City Bank note Corbin Wiggins. Barbecue dinners were sold July 21 in Trenton to help cover the costs, while local businesses, civic organizations and peers also stepped up to assist the family.

SRCC (16-2) took the top seed into the end of season tournament, followed by Tabernacle (15-3) and First Baptist (14-4). Unfortunately, despite winning the regular season title, there was one team that remained a constant problem for SRCC: First Baptist Church of Live Oak. The lone team to knock off SRCC was First Baptist, which did it twice, so when First Baptist and SRCC met in the end of the season tournament final last season, you know SRCC was looking for some revenge. But first they both had to get there, surviving a double-elimination bracket with nine other teams. Having already lost to First Baptist once in the tournament, SRCC had to beat First Baptist twice to win the title. First Baptist jumped on SRCC early and held off a late SRCC rally to win 20-17 in the first game of a possible two game series and more importantly their second consecutive title. “The key for us winning is all of us here playing at the same time, we also hit the ball and came together as a team,” First Baptist manager Buddy Williams said. “We didn’t have a full lineup in all of our losses.” First Baptist successfully defended its title again after sweeping the 2009 regular season and tournament title last season beating Suwannee River in the title game. So who will be this years sleeper team, we will find out soon as the 2011 regular season ended last night. The 2011 end of the season tournament begins Aug. 4-6 at the First Federal Sportsplex and will feature 13 teams: African Baptist, Antioch Baptist, Beulah Baptist, First Baptist, Friendship Baptist, Mt. Olive Baptist, Shady Grove Baptist, Suwannee River Community Church, St. Francis, Tabernacle Baptist, Advent Christian Village #1, Advent Christian Village #2 and Westwood Baptist. With regular season games still being played as of Thursday, the seedings were not available just yet. Games will begin Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the First Federal Sportsplex.

Yonge and Santa Fe will be competing in the event. Area baseball teams are trying to do their part by each school agreeing to contribute $100 to Wiggins’ fund.

Skinner was in North Carolina testing this week before flying out to Indianapolis on Thursday, while his car was driven from North Carolina. Throughout his career, Skinner has won one national championship, two Grand National Championships and six state titles. Now he will try to win his biggest title as of date, competing on the biggest stage of his career at Lucas Oil Raceway.

RESERVE YOUR CHILDS SPOT NOW!!!680682dwv Dr. Donald M. Minshew Senior Pastor Wellborn Baptist Church Life seems more manageable when we are in control. In fact, even when things start to become out of control, we seem to manage better if we can find things where we have direct control. Life is uncomfortable when we give up all control. To be honest, we are rarely without some controls. Sadly, when the situation arises where we lack all control, it is accompanied by a measure of suffering. When that happens, we need to remember that God is involved even in our lack of control and in the administration of our suffering. Peter says it this way: “For you were called to this, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you should follow in His steps. He did not commit sin, and no deceit was found in His mouth; 23 when He was reviled, He did not revile in return; when He was suffering, He did not threaten but entrusted Himself to the One who judges justly. ” (1 Peter 2:21-23) At these moments, we can draw from Christ’s example. Two things from His example in suffering are important to guide us. First, even in the midst of suffering Christ was morally faultless; He did not commit sin. Too often when we suffer, our response is to lash out and create pain for others. That was never the Lord’s response nor should it be ours. Christ was also verbally pure. He told no lies to avoid the pain; He did not give as good as He got: there was no lashing out at those around who caused His pain. He did not threaten. No “if you do this to me, you know what’s going to happen”. The Lord has no time to waste on knee jerk reactions to circumstances that He is not controlling. Instead, He spends His time in the only activity that brings control even when things are out of control: He entrusted Himself to the One who judges justly. This is the first dimension to the key to living life. We must learn to know who is in control even when everything is out of control, the One who judges justly. God the Father is the Sovereign Lord over every dimension of life; not subject to the circumstances of His creation; not limited by lack of power or authority. We may lack any control over the situation that we find ourselves in, but He stands in complete control. So the first step is to know the correct response to overwhelming, uncontrollable circumstances. The second dimension is just as important: we must allow Him to stay in control. Christ entrusted Himself to the Father. This was not a momentary emotional decision; instead, it was a reasoned commitment to His Heavenly Father. Such commitment does not just happen. Our natural response to these circumstances becomes personal and destructive. Only time spent with the heavenly Father during days where we have control prepares us to respond immediately and correctly when terrible circumstances occur by trusting Him. You know the unsettling feeling you have waking up in a strange place? It’s funny how it takes a few minutes to get your bearings and remember where you are! This happened to my new daughter-in-law a few weeks after getting married: she had joined us at the beach for a few days of vacation, and since my son was working, she slept in the room with a twin bed. We all had a good laugh when she awoke the first morning, and thought she was back at her parent’s house before the wedding! As we join the Israelites for our journey through the wilderness, we begin in a place where they have opened their eyes to the same scenery for over four hundred years…Egypt. Understanding where you begin your journey is vital as we travel into the wilderness. How did the Israelites come to be in Egypt? The book of Genesis records God’s promise to Abraham. His offspring would become a great nation and God would provide a land to call their own. God also foretells Abraham of the route his descendants would travel to inherit the land of promise: Then the Lord said to him, “Know for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own, and they will be enslaved and mistreated for four hundred years. But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves, and afterward they will come out with great possessions.” (Genesis 15:13-14) Stop and think about that for a moment. At least five generations before the Israelites became slaves in Egypt, God shared this information with Abraham. The only conclusion I can draw from this passage is being in Egypt was no accident. God had a plan for this people, and He has one for us. Not only is God certain of where you are today, He knows where you are headed and by what route you will arrive. King David was also convinced of this truth: “You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”(Psalm 139:2-3,16) This makes me wonder… if God had spoken to my great-grandparents about my life, what would He have said? Would He mention the lessons I had to learn the hard way, or the sin that led me into places I didn’t want to be? Or would He share that I would learn those lessons, make it through the wilderness, and take possession of the life God has planned for me…my land of promise? I want so much for that to be true in my own life, and in yours. This week, think about where you begin this journey: your Egypt. How did you get here…and are you ready to see your wilderness as a time of learning, growing and changing? It won’t be an easy journey, but remember the Promised Land lies on the other side…and that every heart matters!

PAGE 8B,JULY 29,2011CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE WWW.NFLAONLINE.COM SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA Touchy SituationIn my state it's mandatory that your car be inspected every year and a new inspection sticker be placed on the windshield. So last time I was at the dealer for routine maintenance, I noticed my sticker was about to expire. I asked the mechanic if he could do the inspection process and update the sticker. Complying with my request, he told me to sit in the driver's seat and follow his commands. "Put on the emergency flasher," he shouted. "Great. Hit the brakes," he replied. "Now turn on your headlights." But I was a little perplexed when he yelled, "Good. Now flash me your high beams." (Thanks to Janice F.) Reader Humor Laughs For Sale Duane CashŽ Holze & Todd CarryŽ Holze AccessorizeMany of the car components we regard as necessities started as options. Headlights originated in the late 1880's as optional detachable oil lamps fitted with reflectors and a handle. They were used to light the road and also detached to fix flats. As night driving became commonplace, oil lamps were replaced with acetylene (gas) headlamps that didn't blow out as easily. By 1898, electric head and tail lamps were introduced, and gasoline buggies were outfitted with the first car battery.Blue Light SpecialWhat's that blue light in your rear view mirror? No it's not the cops. It's the new Xenon headlight. Now becoming standard on some cars, these lights provide more than twice the illumination than their halogen counterparts. However, they do come at a price. The new lights can cost up to $800, making them a popular theft item on some models. Since their introduction, carmakers have redesigned their installation to make them tougher to steal. Fast FactsDear Classified Guys, My kids are in love with my father-inlaw's new car because it came with windshield wipers on the headlights. He made up a story that he pays a Smurf to live inside the car and turn the wipers on and off when it starts raining.As far as I'm concerned,a home for Papa Smurf might be those wipers only real function.It seems like an awfully silly feature. Could headlight wipers really improve our safety or is it just another gimmick?€€€Cash:It's actually a little bit of both, depending on how you look at it. Carry:However, it is nice of your father-in-law to keep the Smurfs employed. There aren't many job opportunities out there for Smurfs.Cash:Over time, your headlights can collect road dust and dirt, diminishing the amount of light illuminating from the car, especially in the wintertime. I tend to like the idea of just pressing a button to turn on the headlight wipers and to clean the lights while still driving.Carry:Although, a paper towel at the gas station can accomplish the same thing. I, on the other hand, agree with our reader. The option is just plain silly. Today's cars, although more reliable than ever, are complicated enough. Headlight wipers with separate motors for each headlight and a pump for washer fluid is just one more thing to maintain. Apaper towel at the gas station doesn't need replacement parts.Cash:As you can see, even we have differing opinions on the feature.Carry:Saab was the first to introduce the headlight wiper in the early 1970's. Their goal was to make sure headlights were capable of illuminating the road with the maximum amount of light. It was such an innovative idea that Sweden, where Saab originated, made it mandatory on all cars sold in the country.Cash:Today, other automotive manufacturers around the world have added the feature to some of their high-end models. Carry:So as you can see, headlight wipers could be considered both a gimmick and a safety feature. But the concept of cleaning your headlights is an important safety issue. Next time you stop to fill up your gas tank, take a minute to wipe the dirt off your headlights.Cash:Otherwise, you can always employ a Smurf with a bottle of window cleaner!2004 Snob loaded, low miles.
