A couple from Georgia had been planning on an
afternoon of fishing when their truck decided to take
a swim. The driver of the truck reportedly forgot to
set his emergency brake and his truck rolled into
Cherry Lake. Cherry Lake Fire Department volun-

and the Florida Highway Patrol assisted at the scene.
Eventually, the truck was recovered.

County Commission Approves

New Animal Control Ordinance

By Lynette Norris
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A measure that had
been discussed at the
last meeting, limiting
the number or dogs and
cats county residents
could have without a
permit, was approved 5-0
at the June 15 County

Commission Meeting.
The measure applies
mostly to "basic pet own-
ers" and varies accord-
ing to the amount of
land the resident owns: a
resident with 1.5 acres
or less could have up to
10 dogs or cats; someone
withl.5 to 2.5 acres could

have up to 20 dogs and
cats; someone with 2.5
acres of land or greater
could have up to 30 ani-
mals without needing a
permit. To apply for a
permit, the resident
would have to show the
county that he or she
had the means and abili-

ty to care for the ani-
mals, pay the permit fee
and receive a certificate.
"This ordinance
does not prohibit people
from having excess ani-
mals," said County At-
torney Tom Reeves. "It
just says they have to
have a permit (if they go

above that number)."
Prior to the mea-
sure being passed, there
was no regulation on the
number of dogs and cats

dents could have on

This Invention

Nearly Ruined

Its Inventor
Occasionally you hear a story in the news
about an inventor having his idea stolen by a big
company; this is one of those stories. It's about
an individual inventor and the battles he fought
with the automakers to prevent them from steal-
ing his invention.
In 1964, Robert Kearns had invented inter-
mittent windshield wipers while working out of
his garage, and his efforts to launch them onto
the American market led to court fights that last-
ed for years. Most inventors will tell you that it's
very hard to introduce a new invention to the au-
tomotive industry; Kearns found out the hard
In 1903, when Mary Anderson of Alabama in-
vented the precursor to Robert Kearns' inven-
tion, the windshield wiper, she didn't face any of
the hurdles that Kearns faced. She didn't profit
from her wipers, though.
Unfortunately for Kearns, any of the Big
Three automakers could design their own ver-
sion of intermittent windshield wipers by de-
signing around his original patent - and put him
out of business.
When Kearns met with representatives from
Ford to demonstrate his wipers, he was told that
all he needed to do was prove that they met in-
dustry standards. He did this in 1964 but rather
than immediately license his wipers, Ford of-
fered Kearns a job instead, which he gladly ac-
Just five months later, though, Kearns was
laid off. Soon after that, he noticed that his
patented intermittent windshield wipers began
appearing on Ford cars, even though he did not li-
cense them to Ford. Kearns still held the patent
It's one thing to have a company steal your in-
vention, but imagine what it must feel like to
have AN ENTIRE INDUSTRY steal your inven-
tion! That's what happened to Kearns, as General
Motors, Chrysler, Saab, Volvo, Honda and Rolls-
Royce all followed Ford's lead in stealing Kearns'
intermittent windshield wipers.
Kearns decided to fight them in court, initial-
ly serving as his own lawyer even though, well,
he was not a lawyer. Years of legal battles fol-
lowed, and Kearns eventually won court settle-
ments of more than $10 million from Ford and
$11 million from Chrysler. Today, nearly all new
cars sold worldwide have intermittent wind-
shield wipers. So this story turned out just fine
for Kearns and his family, right?
No, not exactly. The legal battles consumed
nearly thirty years of his life. Kearns' daughter
Kathy once said, "The lawsuit is all we've ever
known." The inventor's wife, after having finally
lost her patience, left him. Kearns filed addition-
al lawsuits against nineteen foreign automakers
but lost, and his suit against General Motors was
thrown out. Altogether, he spent nearly $8 mil-
lion dollars in legal fees.
We now know that inventor Robert Kearns
won the battle, but only he and his family can de-
cide who won the war. He said that his fight was
more about inventors' rights than it was about
money, as evidenced by the fact that he had
turned down an earlier settlement offer of $30
million from Ford. Kearns' intermittent wind-
shield wipers have benefited car owners world-
wide, even though the majority of them do not
result in a royalty to Kearns' family.
Some companies see infringement lawsuits
as merely a cost of doing business, even when
they blatantly steal someone's invention.

Lake Okeechobee. I came
along in 1948.
We lived for a couple
more years in Moore
Haven and for a short pe-
riod of time, Lakeland,
but most of my formative
years were spent in
Gainesville where Dad
worked in the state USDA
office. I spent quite a bit of
time with my Grandpar-
ents on their farm near
Live Oak and with family
in Punta Gorda. In fact,
the only year I spent out-
side the state was my 8th
grade year where we lived
in Raleigh as my Dad pur-
sued a master's degree
from North Carolina
Our family was a tra-

household. Dad said to
Mother, "I'll make the liv-

living." It was a simple
formula and it worked. I
looked no farther than my
family for role models.
Discipline, education, and
religion were important
values that were instilled
in all of us.
One of the things I
learned from my Dad was
what I like to call "strate-
gic thinking." My Father
could think more than a
few steps ahead of the cur-
rent situation. He realized
that his career mobility in
the Department of Agri-
culture would be limited,
so he thought about how
he might use his ability
for other pursuits. He be-
gan to buy farmland and
plant pine trees. In 1986,
he incorporated his hold-

ship we call Boyles Tree

downplays the role of

Eugene Harry Boyles
was born on February 27,
1920 about 27 hours before
Leap Day in Erikson, Ne-
braska, the first born to
Harry and Olive Boyles.
Two sisters would follow
his birth. His Father was
an orphan and his Mother
was born to immigrant
parents in a sod hut.
They moved their
young family to Florida in
1926 only to find that the
land they had purchased
to farm was in the middle
of a Baker County swamp.
My Grandfather was
hired at Penny Farms in
Clay County
In 1931, the family
moved to Live Oak. Young
Gene became very in-
volved in 4-H. By his ju-
nior year in high school,
he was the most accom-
plished 4-H student in the
state. It was 4-H - the
prizes, scholarships, and
earnings - that permitted
him to attend the Univer-
sity of Florida in 1937.
UF was an all male,
land grant college in those
days. Following in his fa-
ther's footsteps, he ma-
jored in animal industry
in the College of Agricul-
ture. ROTC was mandato-
ry for freshmen and
sophomores. In the spring
of 1939, Gene decided to
continue his ROTC pro-
gram for another two
years because of the dete-
riorating situation in Eu-
rope and Asia.
When graduation
came in June 1941, he was
quickly commissioned a

months later, America
was at war.
On January 2, 1943,
while stationed at Camp

considerable response
from members of the pub-

ted facility was found in

county could revoke the
Marianne Green said
she was pleased with the
cooperative living system
that county resident had
for dogs, but free-roaming
cats were another matter.
Currently the animal con-
trol office handles nui-
sance cats by delivering
traps to the affected prop-
erty to catch them.
Tommy Greene took
the floor to protest the

new ordinance as unnec-
essary intrusion of gov-
ernment into the lives of
private citizens. Describ-
ing himself as an animal
lover, Greene said that he
had several animals on
his property and de-
clared, "we talk about
government in Washing-
ton, and I've always said
that no man's freedom
was safe as long as the leg-
islature was in session,
but it's the local lev-
el...local folks are bring-
ing in government on top
of us. Our main freedoms
are being encroached
upon at the county and
city level. We've already
got animal control and
we've got the police. Why
bring in more?"
Counties surround-
ing Madison have varying
levels of animal owner-
ship regulation for their
county residents. In more
densely populated Lown-
des County (Valdosta),
people can own up to five
animals, dogs and cats,
and must keep their ani-
mals on their property It
is primarily "a nuisance-
driven issue," said Linda
Patelski, director of ani-
mal control, who said that

the county has a lot of
people who own hunting
dogs. Six or more animals
constitute a "kennel" and
the owner must be li-
censed as such and meet
all kenneling standards.
The fee for a kennel per-
mit is $400, and the per-
mitting is done through
the Department of Agri-
culture. The ordinance
has never been chal-
lenged, said Patelski, be-
cause many county
residents live on long,
narrow lots and cooperate
to keep their dogs - and
cats - from becoming a
nuisance. Free-roaming
cats are seldom a prob-
lem, she added, because
with so many dogs and
coyotes around, they
would not survive long.
Brooks County (Quit-
man) currently does not
have any permitting re-
quirements for its county
residents, but is in the
process of trying to draw
one up; the process has
been ongoing for a couple
of months, and is primar-
ily driven by noise and vi-
cious dog complaints.
Jefferson County has
no limit on animal owner-
ship by county residents.

Neither does Lafayette
County or Hamilton
County. Suwannee Coun-
ty, with the majority of its
county acreage zoned as
agricultural, also has no
regulation on ownership,
but does have ordinances
concerning nuisance, at-
large or dangerous ani-
mals, especially those
believed to be rabid.
Taylor County's Di-
rector of Animal Control
Carrie Tucker says that
although she would like to
see a similar regulation
on the books in Taylor
County, "right now you
can have as many as you
can take care of, as long as
they're being taken care
"We're just being sti-
fled," said Tommy Greene
after the Madison County
Commissioners Meeting.
"Every time I go to a
board meeting, they're
talking about some new
rule or regulation. We're
losing our freedoms one
board meeting at a time."
Referencing his earlier re-
mark to the board, he
added, "no man's freedom
is safe as long as the
County Commission is in

The Senior Citizens Council of Madison County
teamed up with the 30 Club for a sizzling grilled ,

Phil Fisher of the 30 Club said, "We started out
as a social club, but then we decided to give back to ......
the community"
The 30 Club showed up at 8 a.m. at the Madison ,
Senior Center with their large cooker, tents, music
and nine "chefmasters" to cook a lunchtime meal
that included chicken with all the fixin's, potato sal-
ad, green beans and bread and cakes of all kinds for
"We really had a fantastic time," said Mosely

Madison members, Isaac Mobley and George Hart,
came up with the idea to start a new tradition at the
Madison Senior Citizens Center: a free meal for se-
niors each year. The 30 Club has sponsored meals at
Senior Centers in Georgia for over a decade.
Volunteer servers for June 4 were Madison Se-
nior Center's Kitchen Manager, Betty Johnson and
Lonnie Robinson. The guests, including newcomers
to the Senior Center, gathered in the spacious dining
hall and later took tours of the seniors' Computer
Lab with 10 stations open weekdays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
to the community, seniors' Fitness Room and multi-
purpose rooms dedicated to senior wellness, infor-
mation and fun social events.

The Activities Calendar for June is now avail-
able at the Madison Senior Citizens Center. One
new addition is Art and Craft classes with Joan
Beck, Older American Act Coordinator, weekdays
at 10 a.m. Another new offering is Yoga classes with
certified instructor, Nicholas Roberts, on Tuesday
evenings from 6 p.m.-7 p.m. Each class is a $5 dona-
tion per student. All ages are welcomed.

Now that summer is coming I am looking
forward to a vacation at the beach but I am not
looking forward to the fever blisters which
crop up when I get in the sun. Is there
anything I can do about the fever blisters?

As a matter of fact you can. Wouldn't you
like to go to Disney World for the day and not
be miserable with fever blisters for two weeks
afterwards? I have a number of patients which
call me for a refill of a prescription medicine
called zovirax. The medicine is taken once
daily, starting three days before the trip. My
patients have reported great success
preventing herpes breakouts as long as they
remember to take a tablet each day.
My suggestion, call your dentist or
physician and ask them for a prescription or
Zovirax before your summer vacation.
