Predicting that it
will come down, the City
of Madison set its mill-
age rate for the next fis-
cal year at seven. At
their regular meeting on
July 13, the city commis-
sioners voted unani-
mously to use seven as
the target for TRIM pur-
poses, but expect the rate
to be lower when they
complete the budgeting
process in October.
According to City
Manager H-arold Em-
rich, TRIM is a state re-
quirement that the city

age rate. TRIM means

to 10. A city homeowner
would add the county
millage to that of the
school district, the
Suwannee River Water
Management District,
and the city, then pay
that tax amount for each
$1,000 of his property
value. Emrich explained
that Madison's rate is set
at seven just in case a
major problem surfaces
that would require city
funds. "We don't expect
to have to do that," he
said. "We have never had
to do that in. thet past.'"

TSO Commandments issue

After my initial
letter I was able to
speak to my friend
and recognized there
was a misunderstand-
ing of his use of the
idea of Hammurabi's
Code being displayed
on the courthouse
square as opposed to
the Ten Command-
ments. I confess that
my letter to the editor
was written before I
even understood who
made those comm-
ments.. When I
learned who it was I
knew there was more
to the story. While we
may not totally agree
on this issue we are
brothers who worship
the same Lord and I
have the utmost re-
spect for Bobby Tolar.
Not trying to start
any kind of upheaval
or anything but I did
want to share a few
more facts related to
this issue of the First
Amendment that I
found interesting.
The letter from
Thomas Jefferson
that contained the
phrase "...wall of sep-
aration between
church and state..."
was a reply to an ap-
peal from the Dan-
bury Baptist
Convention who
asked him to support
the disestablishment
of the Connecticut
state churInch,. Jef-
ferson agreed with
them but refused to
allow the federal gov-

ernment to intrude in
state matters. He put
the limit on the heavy
hand of the federal
government and de-
cided what they did
regarding religion
was the business of
that jurisdiction,
This limited view of
federal government
and recognition of
the sovereignty of the
individual states is
known as "federal-
ism~" and was widely
accepted in this coun-
try until recent
decades. Jefferson
was a very strong ad-
vocate of this con-
If Jefferson in-
tended for there to be
no reference of reli-
gion in the public
square, then why did
he along with George
Washington, John
Adams and the rest of
our founding fathers
not practice this?
Why were they mak-
ing educators teach
the bible in school
classrooms? Why did
Jefferson, three days
after writing that let-
ter, attend the largest
Christian congrega-
tion in the United
States, which, ironi-
cally, was held weekly
in the House Cham-
bers of the Capital
Howv are wve now
saying that we must
agree with those who
say we must erase
every reference to re-

ligion in government
buildings? Was this
what Jefferson, Wash-
ington, Adams, et al
intended? I don't
think so. That is, un-
less they intended for
this concept to begin
to catch on 200 years
The case law
looked at or litmus
tests courts have used
to make these deci-
sions on religious
themed display is
this: Is the purpose of
the display intended
to advance or dispar-
age religion? In that
regard the fe de ral
government is to do
neither. My point is
this: Since we have
started down the road
of secularizing the
country, what is stop-
ping the march from
coming right into
your church -or
house? I mean, we the
people are the govern-
ment, remember?
So, what hap-
pened to federalism?
Our founding fathers
were adamant about
making sure the fed-
eral government did-
n't lord over these
United States about
religious issues.
Fast forward to to-
day and we see orga-
nized groups small
in overall number but
very loud and with
the backing of
celebrities and bu-
reaucrats -doing
things that should

shock us into action.
They are filing
ridiculous lawsuits
such as against
schools who have
prayer before a foot-
ball game. These
groups are relying on
the "separation of
church and state" ar-
gument. They have a
real problem, though
because it is coming
to light more and
more that their acts
are unconstitutional
and they are losing
While the Bible
tells us to obey the
law of thne land, this
law is not cut and
dried. Many times
courts have found the
display of scripture
in a government
building to be consti-
Mr. Gene Stokes
made a very good
point yesterday when
he said that the most
important thing is for
God's law to be writ-
ten in our hearts. I
I only hope we
recognize that local
citizens still have a
say so and sometimes
need to give Big
Brother a reality
check. With regard to
lawsuits, people
should not automati-
cally lie down in sub-

photos of the church and people in the church from
1935 until the 1970s for a book that I am preparing
for homecoming. We also need pictures of homes in
which former Pastor Mallory Smith may have held
prayer meetings before the church was established.
We especially need any pictures of ministers and
their families, as well as any photos of former Pas-
tor Gene Rice and his wife, Betty. Gene Rice will be
thne guest speaker for the hometcoming service. l~l d
way Church of God was the first church that hne ever
served as pastor of during his 59-year ministry. If
possible, we need the photos by July 30. They will be
scanned and returned to you. Contact me at (850)

legislative districts
that wander all over the
map. Their objective is
to ensure the election
of a certain party or
candidate. It is "rig-
ging" the political
game and it's called
" gerr ymander in g ."
The term comes from
Massachusetts two hun-
dred years ago when
Governor Elbridge Ger-
ry created districts that
meandered across the
countryside to ensure
the election of his polit-
ical cronies. As a re-
sult, the terms gerry
and meander were com-
bined to form gerry-
This type of politi-
cal shenanigan may be
hundreds of years old,
but modern Florida is
hardly exempt. We
have some of the most
screwy congressional
and legislative districts
designed solely to be-
stow political favors.
Look at Congressional
District 3 that includes
areas of Jacksonville's
Westside and then
snakes down the St
Johns River to include
certain precincts in
Palatka, Gainesville
and Ocala. The district
w~as shaped this wvay to
ensure the election of
Corrine Brown who has
represented FL-3 since
1993. The drawing of a
political district that fa-
vors Brown makes her
reelection a sure thing.
We have hundreds
of examples, literally.
Even fairly concentric
districts will often have
a spur to include
precincts which favor
an incumbent. Allen
Boyd's FL-2 is a typical
example. During the
last redistricting fol-
lowing the 2000 census,
clever politicians drew
Boyd's district to be
more favorable to a Re-
publican. As a result,
Madison, where Boyd

could have counted on
more votes, was cut
from his district and
Suwannee was includ-
ed. It makes no sense,
but then politics often
makes no sense.
In that case, Boyd
had the last laugh (so
far) when the Republi-
can that might have
beaten him decided not
to run.
Want another egre-
gious example? Take a
look at North Caroli-
na's 12th Congressional
District represented
since 1993 by Mel Watt.
NC-12 is sometimes jok-
ingly referred to as the
I-85 district because it
generally follows the
interstate for about a
hundred miles from
Charlotte to H-igh Point.
These gerryman-
dered districts are
drawn so cleverly that
it is almost impossible
to defeat an incumbent.
Over the past six years
in 420 elections for state
senator and representa-
tive in Florida, only
three incumbents have
been defeated less
than one percent. For-
tunately, we have term
limits; otherwise, it
would take dynamite to
remove these guys from
I don't know how
far back Florida's histo-
ry of gerrymandering
goes, but the latest iter-
ation is the result of an
unusual alliance be-
tween Republicans and
Black (Democrat)
politicians. This politi-
cal glad-handing result-
ed in congressional and
legislative districts that
favor both Republi-
cans control 15 of 25

Congressional seats;
three of the "Democ-
rat" districts heavily fa-
vor their Black
representatives and
make reelection a
cinch. The state leg-
islative districts for
both houses are just as
The result is that
the representation and
elections are rigged. It
shouldn't be that way. It
is far better and more fair
to have concentric dis-
tricts that are drawn im-
partially to not favor one
party or candidate over
During this fall's gen-
eral election, we have an
opportunity to set things
right. Two amendments
(5 and 6) will require our
congressional and legisla-
tive districts to be drawn
in a concentric and im-
partial manner. Of
course, to be adopted, the
amendments will need to
garner 60 percent of the
vote to amend the consti-
tution, but that's fair.
The professional
politicians in Tallahassee
tried to rush through a
counter-amendment (7)
that would have gutted 5
and 6, but Leon County
Judge Shelfer threw 7 off
the ballot because it was
ambiguously worded.
Chalk one up for the good
I invite you to visit
the Fair District website
at www.fairdistrictflori- to learn more in-
formation about thiS
important topic. Elec-
tions shouldn't be stolen,
and they shouldn't be

Attorney to handle it) when I looked at Smith's dri-
ving record. The driver's license printout from the
DHSMV said his license was valid, which means he
could not have been driving on a permanently re-
voked drivers license. I called DHSMV in Tallahassee
and had them look at his driving record with me.
They agreed that his drivers license was not perma-
nently revoked (thus there was no felony for Mr. San
Filippo to have been ordered to reduce.) I did review
his record and it should have been written initially
as driving while license suspended- second offense
(yes, there were additional DWLS charges, but they
were too old and by statute could not be counted). I
personally contacted Mr. Smith (who at this point did
not yet have an attorney) and advised him that I was
correcting the charge from the felony to DWLS- sec-
ond offense. He informed that he was going to plead
"With that," Jarvis said, "I went ahead and re-
filed a citation using the correct charge and he pled
guilty as charged. Judge Murphy has accepted his
plea and sentenced him to 30 days in the Taylor
County Jail. This is all public record in the Taylor
County Clerk's office.
This writer also obtained a copy of the original
termination letter Jarvis hand-delivered to San Fil-
ippo back in January. The following is the text of that
"Mr. San Filippo,
"As the elected chief law enforcement officer of
the Third Judicial Circuit, I have the responsibility
to insure that the integrity of this office is not com-
promised. Unfortunately, over the past year in office
I have observed behavior on your part that brings the
office into disrepute and fails to fulfill our responsi-
bility to the citizens of the State of Florida.
"In July I was contacted by Judge Wetzel Blair
who asked me to meet with Mr. and Mrs. Gene
Rutherford regarding the condition you left the prop-
erties that you rented from Lois Webb in Madison
County. After reviewing the photographs of the
property and seeing other documentation, I directed
you to get with them to resolve this matter. When it
appeared that you had failed to do so, I advised the
Rutherford's that they should proceed in whatever
manner they deemed appropriate.
"I now find that on December 15th you went to
the Madison County Sheriffs Office and filed a felony
complaint against Mrs. Webb in what appears to be
either a retaliatory move or an attempt to gain an ad-
vantage in the civil landlord/tenant dispute.
"I recently also learned that in June of 2008 you
were involved in a matter in which you purchased a
"Rolex" watch from an individual selling gold jewel-
ry out of a sack in a parking lot in Lake City You
subsequently sold the watch to an attorney and it
was from him that you learned that the watch was a
fake. You then demanded that this office pursue
criminal charges against the seller, Richard Carr.
When I learned of this case several days ago I direct-
ed that it would not be filed by this office based upon
my belief that should the case be presented to a jury
it would appear that you were attempting to pur-
chase what could reasonably have been believed to
have been stolen property for pennies on the dollar.
"My decision to not proceed in either of these
cases has caused you to confront staff prosecutors
and accuse me of being politically motivated. You
are only partly correct. As an elected official, I must
demand that my staff not bring my office into disre-
pute. As the State Attorney, I must demand that no
one on my staff attempts to use their position for per-
sonal reasons. The public expects us to be above re-
"In addition to your complaints to other staff
members that you have somehow been mistreated as
a victim by my refusal to proceed on either of these
two cases, you have taken your complaint to outside
individuals and agencies in an attempt to air this
dirty laundry for all to see. This brings the office
into further disrepute, something I will not tolerate.
"I have also been advised that certain financial
dealings involving your mother's nursing home care
are being looked into as a part of an investigation by
the Attorney General's office. I do not have the ben-
efit of their investigation and I have deliberately not
inquired of them to avoid any appearance that I am
in some way attempting to influence their decisions.
"For the foregoing reasons, I have determined
that your actions are not in the interest of this office
and bring it to disrepute. Therefore, I am taking the
following action.
"Effective immediately, your appointment as an
Assistant State Attorney is revoked and your em-
ployment with this office is terminated. Please sur-
render your badge and identification, your office key,
your state vehicle and credit card, and any other
state property currently in your possession.

millage rate at seven, with Commissioner Jim
Stanley adding, "For TRIM purposes only." Em-
rich suggested that the actual operating millage
rate remain the same as it has been for the 2009-
2010 budget year, which ends in October. That
rate, 6.0484 mills, produced $500,000 for the
city's coffers in the past year.
Commissioner Jim Catron asked, "How has
lower property values impacted us?"
Emrich replied, "We are fortunate that we
are not as property-tax driven as some other
places. Our general fund is tight and going to be
tighter." He added that profits from city utilities
help the general fund.

Navigating Your Way through the
Investment World

Provided by Bradl Bashaw, Edward Jones

You may not realize it, but July 24 is Amelia Earhart Day.
July 24 was chosen because it's the birthday of perhaps
the most famous female aviator in history. Earhart's story
ended tragically when she became lost in the Pacific
Ocean in 1937 on her voyage around the world, but she
is still celebrated for her bravery and pioneer spirit.

As an investor, you can learn a lot from Earhart's career.
Here are a few lessons to consider:

*Plan ahead. After a lengthy analysis of Earhart's final
flight, decades after it occurred, a noted aviation expert
came to one succinct conclusion: "poor planning, worse
execution." Yet on her successful flights, Earhart was
known to have produced, and followed, detailed flight
plans. As an investor, you, too, must plan your journey
toward your financial goals. First, you need to identify
your destination, such as a comfortable retirement. Next,
you must create a "map" to reach your goal, in the form of
ao dtt led fnancial statketg based on aneiest ont p rt-
along the way, you must chart your progress via regular
reviews of your investments' performance.

*Use the right "tools." Some sources have noted that,
on the fateful flight, Earhart did not appear to fully under-
san hwh to ue et ep neas derectte -findin uopanten-t
fully understand the "tools" that is, the investments -
you need to help achieve your goals, you may run into dif-
ficulties. Always know exactly what you're investing in and
why you've chosen those specific investments. Without
this information, you could end up with investments that
are either too risky for your comfort or too conservative
for your goals.

Earhaollowd hourn vg tor,0FretdheN atn wer s h dued
to land on Howland Island. Unfortunately, it was a cloudy
day; some researchers speculate that the clouds' dark
shadows on the ocean surface may have camouflaged
Howland and confused the aviators. As an investor, you
need a clear view of what you want to accomplish in the
long term and you need to avoid having your vision
"clouded over" by short-term events such as price drops
and recessions.

*Put sufficient "power" in your portfolio. Many avia-
tion scholars and researchers believe Earhart's plane

growth- and income-oriented vehicles to power you
toward college for your kids, a comfortable retirement and
your other goals? If you're not sure, you may want to work
with a professional financial advisor to get the assistance
you need.

Fletcher is the wife of Al Fletcher and
the mother of twvo sons, Dustin and

After following an ad in the local
newspaper, Tammy applied for a posi-
tion as an office worker for the Madi-

previously working for a company in
Quitman, Ga., and said this new job
was exactly what she was looking for,
an office job and closer to home. That
was 22 years ago.
Now Tammy Fletcher is Adminis-
trative Assistant for the MPD. Her job
requires entering all of the data files
that thet officers generate. She also does
all of the paper work for the police de-
partment, as well as answering phones.
Tammy remarked on what she
loves most about her job, "I love being
able to help people. It is like I have 15
sons (the officers)," she said.

Photos are needed of homes in the area, as well as of
the old Midway School.
Of particular interest are photographs of homes and
brush arbors where prayer meetings may have been held
in the early 1930s.
Jacob Bembry is collecting the photographs for a book
of photos and stories, which will be published and avail-
able by the homnecomning at Mlidwcay Church of God on Oct.

out to the coaches, McHar-
gue noted, "Only the head
coach understands all that
comes with being the head
coach. Only the head
coach's wife understands
all that comes with being
the head coach's wife."
Coaches from five

Christian Boggs, Taylor;
and Bill and Melissa Wiles,
McHargue also noted

that the same could be said
about ministry couples as
"Until you have been
in a particular role, you
have no idea all the pain,
pressure and privileges
that come with the territo-
ry," he said.
McHargue said that he
and his wife, Jan, wanted
to invite the coaches into
their home for the purpose
of building a team of fami-
ly relationships that will
carry them through all of
"At this point in our
lives, we have come to val-

else," McHargue told the
coaches and their wives. "If
you need encouragement
and are looking for that
proper balance, we would
love to be a part of your en-
couragement team."
McHargue noted that
one of the purposes of FCA
is a desire to reach, "Every

The 2nd century
Chinese inventor Ding
Huan (fl. 180) of the Han
Dynasty invented a ro-
tary fan for air condi-
tioning, with seven
wheels 3 m (9.8 ft) in di-
ameter and manually
powered. In 747, Emper-
or Xuanzong (r. 712-762)
of the Tang Dynasty
(618-907) had the Cool
Hall (Liang Tian) built
in the imperial palace,
which the Tang Yulin
describes as having wa-
ter-powered fan wheels
for air conditioning as
well as rising jet
streams of water from
fountains.[3] During the
subsequent Song Dy-
nasty (960-1279), writ-
ten sources mentioned
the air conditioning ro-
tary fan as even more
widely used.
Medieval Persia
had buildings that used
cisterns and wind tow-
ers to cool buildings
during the hot season:
cisterns (large open
pools in central court-
yards, not underground
tanks) collected rain
water; wind towers had
windows that could
catch wind and internal
vanes to direct the air-
flow down into the
building, usually over
the cistern and out
through a downwind
cooling tower. Cistern
water evaporated, cool-
ing the air in the build-
ing. Wind catchers were
widely used throughout
the medieval Muslim
world, where they were
used for air condition-
ing in many cities.
Ventilators were in-
vented in medieval
Egypt and were widely
used in many houses
throughout Cairo dur-
ing the Middle Ages.
These ventilators were

later described in detail
by Abd al-Latif al-Bagh-
dadi in 1200, who re-
ported that almost
every house in Cairo
had a ventilator, and
that they cost anywhere
from 1 to 500 dinars de-
pending on their sizes
and shapes. Most venti-
lators in the city were
oriented towards the
Qibla, as was the city in
In the 1600s Cor-
nelius Drebbel demon-
strated "turning
Summer into Winter"
for James I of England
by adding salt to water.
In 1758, Benjamin
Franklin and John
Hadley, a chemistry pro-
fessor at Cambridge
University, conducted
an experiment to ex-
plore the principle of
evaporation as a means
to rapidly cool an ob-
ject. Franklin and
Hadley confirmed that
evaporation of highly
volatile liquids such as
alcohol and ether could
be used to drive down
the temperature of an
object past the freezing
point of water. They
conducted their experi-
ment with the bulb of a
mercury thermometer
as their object and with
a bellows used to
"quicken" the evapora-
tion; they lowered the
temperature of the
thermometer bulb
down to 70F while the
ambient temperature
was 650E. Franklin not-
ed that soon after they
passed the freezing
point of water (32oF) a
thin film of ice formed
on the surface of the
thermometer's bulb and
that the ice mass was
about a quarter inch
thick when they
stopped the experiment

upon reaching 70F.
Franklin concluded,
"From this experiment,
one may see the possi-
bility of freezing a man
to death on a warm
summer's day".
In 1820, British sci-
entist and inventor
Michael Faraday discov-
ered that compressing
and liquefying ammonia
could chill air when the
liquefied ammonia was
allowed to evaporate. In
1842, Florida physician
John Gorrie used com-
pressor technology to
create ice, which he used
to cool air for his pa-
tients in his hospital in
Apalachicola, Florida.
He hoped eventually to
use his ice-making ma-
chine to regulate the
temperature of build-
ings. He even envisioned
centralized air condi-
tioning that could cool
entire cities. Though his
prototype leaked and
performed irregularly,
Gorrie was granted a
patent in 1851 for his ice-
making machine. His
hopes for its success
vanished soon after-
wards when his chief fi-
nancial backer died;
Gorrie did not get the
money he needed to de-
velop the machine. Ac-
cording to his
biographer, Vivian M.
Sherlock, he blamed the
"Ice King", Frederic Tu-
dor, for his failure, sus-
pecting that Tudor had
launched a smear cam-
paign against his inven-
tion. Dr. Gorrie died
impoverished in 1855
and the idea of air con-
ditioning faded away for
50 years.
In 1902, the first
modern electrical air
conditioning unit was
invented by Willis Havi-
land Carrier in Buffalo,

New York. After gradu-
ating from Cornell Uni-
versity, Carrier, a native
of Angola, New York,
found a job at the Buffa-
lo Forge Company.
While there, Carrier be-
gan experimentation
with air conditioning as
a way to solve an appli-
cation problem for the
Sackett-Wilhelms Litho-
graphing and Publish-
ing Company in
Brooklyn, New York,
and the first "air condi-
tioner," designed and
built in Buffalo by Car-
rier, began working on
17 July 1902.
Designed to im-
prove manufacturing
process control in a
printing plant, Carri-
er's invention con-
trolled not only
temperature but also
humidity. Carrier used
his knowledge of the
heating of objects with
steam and reversed the
process. Instead of
sending air through hot
coils, he sent it through
cold coils (ones filled
with cold water). The
air blowing over the
cold coils cooled the air,
and one could thereby
control the amount of
moisture the colder air
could hold. In turn, the
humidity in the room
could be controlled. The
low heat and humidity
were to help maintain
consistent paper dimen-
sions and ink align-
ment. Later, Carrier's
technology was applied
to increase productivity
in the workplace, and
The Carrier Air Condi-
tioning Company of
America was formed to
meet rising demand.
Over time, air condi-
tioning came to be used
to improve comfort in
homes and automobiles

as well. Residential
sales expanded dramat-
ically in the 1950s.
In 1906, Stuart W.
Cramer of Charlotte,
North Carolina was ex-
ploring ways to add
moisture to the air in
his textile mill. Cramer
coined the term "air
conditioning", using it
in a patent claim he
filed that year as an
analogue to "water con-
ditioning," then a well-
known process for
making textiles easier
to process. He combined
moisture with ventila-
tion to "condition" and
change the air in the
factories, controlling
the humidity so neces-
sary in textile plants.
Willis Carrier adopted
the term and incorpo-
rated it into the name of
his company. This evap-
oration of water in air,
to provide a cooling ef-
fect, is now known as
evaporative cooling.
The first air condi-
tioners and refrigera-
tors employed toxic or
flammable gases like
ammonia, methyl chlo-
ride, and propane
which could result in fa-
tal accidents when they
leaked. Thomas Midg-
ley, Jr. created the first
chlorofluorocarbon gas,
Freon, in 1928.
Freon is a trade-
mark name owned by
DuPont for any Chloro-
fluorocarbon (CFC), Hy-
drogenated CFC
(HCFC), or Hydrofluo-
rocarbon (HFC) refrig-
erant, the name of each
including a number in-
dicating molecular
composition (R-11, R-12,
R-22, R-134A). The blend
most used in direct-ex-
pansion home and
building comfort cool-
ing is an HCFC known

as R-22. It is to be
phased out for use in
new equipment by 2010
and completely discon-
tinued by 2020. R-12 was
the most common blend
used in automobiles in
the US until 1994 when
most changed to R-134A.
R-11 and R-12 are no
longer manufactured in
the US for this type of
application, the only
source for air condi-
tioning purchase being
the cleaned and puri-
fied gas recovered from
other air conditioner
systems. Several non-
ozone depleting refrig-
erants have been
developed as alterna-
tives, including R-410A,
invented by Honeywell
(formerly AlliedSignal)
in Buffalo, and sold un-
der the Genetron (R)
AZ-20 name. It was first
commercially used by
Carrier under the
brand name Puron.
Innovation in air
conditioning technolo-
gies continues, with
much recent emphasis
placed on energy effi-
ciency, and on improv-
ing indoor air quality.
Reducing climate
change impact is an im-
portant area of innova-
tion, because in
addition to greenhouse
gas emissions associat-
ed with energy use,
CFCs, HCFCs and HFCs
are, themselves, potent
greenhouse gases when
leaked to the atmos-
phere. For example, R-
22 (also known as
HCFC-22) has a global
warming potential
about 1,800 times higher
than CO2. As an alter-
native to conventional
refrigerants, natural al-
ternatives like CO2 (R-
744) have been

Madison County Carrier 13A

By M.K. Graves
Greene Publishing, Inc.
It's a miserable feel-
ing: looking down at
one's arm or leg and see-
ing a tick sucking blood
into its torso. This tiny
insect, the deer tick, is
the subject of a medical
controversy among peo-
ple diagnosed with Lyme
Disease, which is found
in all 50 states.
Lyme Disease is the
number one vector borne
disease in the United
States. Left untreated,
Lyme can spread to
joints, heart and the ner-
vous system, so it can be
People spending time
in grassy or wooded ar-
eas like Madison County
are at risk for tick bites
infected with a bacteri-
um called Borrelia
burgdorferi. Dr. Kerry
Clark, a well-known sci-
entific researcher and
professor of epidemiolo-
gy and environmental
health at the University
of North Florida in Jack-
sonville, says that tick
bite infections are signifi-
cantly underreported in
the southern United
If caught early, med-
ical experts say a one or
two-month course of an-
tibiotics seems to control

the symptoms. Unfortu-
nately, some people don't
see ticks right away They
may delay getting antibi-
otic treatment, even after
developing a ring-like
rash around the tick bite,
flu-like symptoms or fa-
The question is, will
they end up with nerve or
joint damage, experience
arthritis pain, mental
confusion, Bell's palsy,
memory problems,
headaches or muscle
spasms as a result? Some
patients say Lyme Dis-
ease never goes away
with these mystifying
symptoms and they're
angry at doctors who dis-
agree. For instance, it's
been rumored that entire
families have been infect-
ed with Lyme Disease
around Paynes Prairie in
On the opposing
side, some physicians
and researchers say
Lyme Disease can't be-
come chronic and most
symptoms are gone in a
year. They claim that
continuing symptoms
are not caused by Lyme
Disease, but something
else. Still, many infected
patients aren't satisfied
with this explanation af-
ter years of battling
strange medical prob-

lems following their tick
bite. To get relief, they
may even go to doctors
who administer strong
antibiotic dosages for a
period of years.
In his opinion, Clark
has said that even after a
Lyme infection appears
to be gone, "There may be
some people you can't
cure, no matter how long
you treat them." He said
tests for Lyme Disease
are accurate only approx-
imately 50% of the time.
After nearly two
decades of researching
ticks and Lyme Disease,
Dr. Clark will identify
ticks sent to his laborato-
ry in a zip lock bag. He'll
find out if the tick carries
bacterium after the bit-
ten person develops
symptoms a couple of
weeks after the bite.
Enclose the tick in a
zip lock bag with name
and information to Dr.
Kerry Clark, c/o The Uni-
versity of North Florida,
1 UNF Drive, Jack-
sonville, Fl 32224.
Ticks bites are also
responsible for Rocky
Mountain Spotted Fever;
African Swine Fever; Re-
lapsing Fever and other

More and more stories have been
popping up throughout the local area
media networks about the new and le-
gal drug, K2.
K2, or spice, is the brand name for
a synthetic drug reported to have the
same effects as marijuana. This drug
is a blend of spices, herbs and syn-
thetic cannabinoids. A cannabinoid is
knock-off of cannabis. However, un-
like marijuana K2 does not contain the
psychoactive chemical tetrahydro-
cannabinol (THC). The drugs con-
tained in K2 actually are three to five
times more potent and dangerous than
that in marijuana.
K2 can be consumed in similar
ways to marijuana including smoking
and huffing. K2 is reportedly produced
in Korea and China and comes in
many varieties. Some of the varieties
include Summit, Standard, Blonde
and Citron. This drug is legal through-
out most of the country and also on-
line. Some states have banned the sale
and possession of the active ingredi-
ent in K2.
However, what many users don't
know is that there are multiple harm-
ful side effects and dangers of spice.
K2 can cause paranoia, hallucina-
tions, increased heart rate,10oss of con-
sciousness and psychotic episodes.
Other side effects include vomiting,
nausea, migraines and loss of concen-
A study conducted in 2008 also
showed that K2 users developed de-
pendency, withdrawal and other addic-
tive behaviors. This drug is most

I : CE~ .-
K2, or spice, is a synthetic drug
similar to marijuana but much more
dangerous to teenagers. K2 is legal
and readily available to underage chil-
dren across the country. Parents
should inform their children of the
dangers of K2 before it is too late.
The effects of K2 are devastating,
while the high may be temporarily
nice, the long term, and, at times, even
immediate, effects could be life threat-
ening. Some have reported immediate-
ly fainting after smoking K2. Others
have reported sickness and prolonged
There have been no studies on the
long-term effects of spice. There is no
way to know how K2 could affect the
brain, heart or lungs. The life long ef
fects of this drug are unknown and a
complete mystery. The risk is not
worth taking for a temporary high.

In summer, icy sodas and sports drinks are a big
lure over plain water, but as it turns out water has a
multitude of benefits over other drinks. It's best to
know the pros and cons of the drinks you rely on every
"Water is essential for our bodies because it is in
every cell, tissue, and organ in your body That's why
getting enough water every day is important for your
health," said County Health Department Administra-
tor Kim Barnhill. Healthy people meet their fluid
needs by drinking when thirsty and drinking fluids
with meals. But, if you're outside in hot weather for
most of the day or doing vigorous physical activity,
you'll need to make an effort to drink more fluids.
Most of your water needs are met through the wa-
ter and beverages you drink. You can get some fluid

through the foods you eat. For example, broth soups
and other foods that are 85% to 95% water such as cel-
ery, tomatoes, oranges, and melons.
Water helps your body with the following: keeps its
temperature normal; lubricates and cushions your
joints; protects your spinal cord and other sensitive tis-
sues; Gets rid of wastes through urination, perspira-
tion, and bowel movements.
You need water to replace what your body loses
through normal everyday functions. Of course, you
lose water when you go to the bathroom or sweat, but
you even lose small amounts of water when you ex-
hale. You need to replace this lost water to prevent de-
Your body also needs more water when you are in
hot climates, more physically active, running a fever or
have diarrhea or vomiting.
To help you stay hydrated during prolonged physi-
cal activity or when it is hot outside, the Dietary Guide-
lines for Americans 2005 recommends these two steps:
Drink fluid while doing the activity and drink several
glasses of water or other fluid after the physical activi-
ty is completed. Also, when you are participating in
vigorous physical activity, it's important to drink be-
fore you even feel thirsty. Thirst is a signal that your
body is on the way to dehydration.
Some people may have fluid restrictions because of
a health problem, such as kidney disease. If your
healthcare provider has told you to restrict your fluid
intake, be sure to follow that advice.
Choose water instead of sugar-sweetened bever-
ageS. This tip can also help with weight management.
Substituting water for one 20-ounce sugar-sweetened
soda will save you about 240 calories; choose water in-
stead of other beverages when eating out. Generally,
you will save money and re-
duce calories; give your wa-
ter a little pizzazz by
adding a wedge of lime or
lemon. This may improve
the taste, and you just
might drink more water
than you usually do. r i
Although beverages
that are sweetened with
sugars do provide water,
they usually have more
calories than unsweetened
beverages. To help with Yu
Yo c
weight control, you should
COnSume beverages and
foods that don't have added
sugars. Examples of bever-
ages with added sugars:
Fruit drinks, some sports
drinks, soft drinks and so-
das (non-diet).
When it comes to
weight loss, most people
try to reduce their calorie
intake by focusing on food, The Sta)
but another way to cut calo- iJ
ries may be to think about Tri-t
what you drink. Calories in
drinks are not hidden
(they're listed right on the
Nutrition Facts label), but Dso
many people don't realize
just how many calories m~lost Insural
beverages can contribute Discount I
to their daily intake. Exl
Some ways to make
smart beverage choices

I have this old partial which I have womn for years. It has
these wires which hold it in that look bad in my smile. Can
you make a partial without those ugly wires?


Boy, this is a Catch 22 for the dentist. A partial which
doesn't have any wires to keep it tight looks just fine right
until it falls down at the dinner party or even worse, at
church. So instead of a partial that slips down you have
this hardware across your tooth which shows up in the
smile. Which is worse? Do you have to choose between
the hardware or a loose partial?

I am happy to say that we have more options these
days. Rea<11-r: m!y first choice is the partial with the metal
clasps (don't get mad at me). It functions the best, but I
work hard to keep the wires toward the back of the mouth
where they do not show and make them hidden as much
as possible. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to
hide the clasps so we have to come up with plan B. For
many patients a better cosmetic alternative is a precision
partial. With precision partial there are not any clasps.
The clasps are built within the partial and specially made
crowns. The partial will snap into the crown so a clasp is
not needed. This runs up the cost compared to a standard
partial but it is an excellent cosmetic solution.

Another choice is VALPLAST partial. These are
acrylic partial which still rely on clasps to stay in tight.
The nice thing about VALPLAST is the clasps are made
from pink flexible plastic. So instead of a metal wire clasp
there is a pink plastic clasps which wraps around the tooth
at the gumline. This is a great economical option for those
cosmetic cases.

/ grew up on the Gulf Coast. I know these waters. And l'm
doing everything / can to clean them up.
Fred Lemond, BP Cleanup Operations

BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf. And
that includes keeping you informed.

Searching For And Cleaning Up The Oil
Every morning, over 50 spotter planes and helicopters search for
oil off the coast, heading to areas previously mapped with satellite
imagery and infrared photography. Once oil is found, they radio
down to the 6,000 ships and boats of all sizes that are supporting
the cleanup effort and working to collect the oil. These are
thousands of local shrimping and fishing boats organized into
task forces and strike teams, plus specialized skimmers mobilized
from as far as the Netherlands.

We have recovered more than 27 million gallons of oil-water
mixture from the Gulf. Other methods have also helped remove
mil ions of additional gallons of oil from the water. We've deployed
more than 8 million feet of boom to protect beaches and sensitive
wildlife areas.

Hurricane Preparedness
In the event of a hurricane, our first priority is keeping people
safe. In coordination with the Coast Guard and local officials, we
may suspend operations temporarily but have organized to resume
them as soon as possible.

Our Responsibility
We have already spent more than $3.2 billion responding to the
spill and on the cleanup, and none of this will be paid by taxpayers.
We will work in the Gulf as long as it takes to get this done. We
may not always be perfect but we will do everything we can to
make this right.

For assistance, please call:
To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816
To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401
To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858
