Secret Service raids Quincy office


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times General Manager
Members of a U.S. Secret Service task
force, aided by Gadsden County Sheriff's
deputies, raided AdsurfDaily Inc. in Quincy
Tuesday morning, evacuating the company's
employees from the building at 13 S. Calhoun
St.
Agents also executed a search warrant at the
home of the company's president and
founder, Andy Bowdoin, at 8 Gilcrease Lane
near Lake Talquin.
"We are looking at documents and computer
hardware," said Robert Munson, resident
agent of the Tallahassee Secret Service
Office. "That's all I can tell you right now
because the investigation is ongoing."
Agents were at ASD when it opened
Tuesday at 7:30 a.m., said Hayes Amos, an
attorney for the company.


He declined to comment further on the
investigation.
Lt. Jim Corder, an investigator for the
GSCO, said agents had a 53-page indictment
and that criminal charges are possible.
No charges had been filed as of press time
Wednesday morning.
Sandi Copes, spokeswoman for state U.S.
Attorney General Bill McCollum's office,
confirmed Tuesday evening that office is also
investigating ASD. When contacted about the
company Monday, she said 117 complaints
and/or inquiries about the company had been
logged.
In a July 3 press release, the Gadsden
County Chamber of Commerce
announced that ASD was locating its
headquarters in Quincy. The Internet
advertising company recently bought the

Radio station owner delivers his

dream to Gadsden inmates


By ANGYE MORRISON
Times Managing Editor
Scott Beigle had a dream. Although he took the
scenic route, his dreams -have finally been
realized, and some local inmates are reaping the
benefits.
Beigle, who owns and operates WFRF Faith
Radio in Tallahassee, recently delivered 300
solar-powered radios to the ladies at Gadsden
Correctional Institution, and he hopes to do the
same for the male population there sodn, as well
as inmates at the Gadsden County Jail.
The radios are made provided through
donations from listeners and supporters of the
station, and are manufactured by a mission
organization in Canada.
The idea for the unique outreach began with
the birth of a radio station in Kenya, Africa three


years ago. That small station now reaches over 7
million people from its home high on a
mountain, and 3,500 radios have been provided
for listeners there.
As Beigle, who spent 20 years in Christian
broadcasting before pursuing his dream of
purchasing a radio station to begin his own
ministry, spoke on the air about that station and
its impact in Kenya, he commented that it'would
be great if those same radios could be provided
to prisons locally.
"Ten minutes later I was on the phone with the
secretary of the (Florida) Department of
Corrections," he said with a grin. "I met with
Wakulla (Correctional Institute), and we set up a
pilot program out there for six months. The
program worked so well in Wakulla, that similar

Gretna


considers


racetrack,


gaming


arcades

By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Gretna City Commission unanimously passed
two ordinances on the first reading, taking the first
steps in what could open the door for horse racing and
adult arcade games.
"Initially everything will be at the Highway 12 and
Interstate-10 exchange, then will move back this way.
This has been in the works for months," said Harold
Knowles, city attorney.
"There will be race track and a gaming
establishment. Gretna is now on the verge of
exploding with economic development. There are
pitfalls but there are opportunities. Yotr will see hotels,
restaurants and other spin-offs. We have to look
beyond gaming and see what other opportunities are
behind it," Knowles continued.
He said jobs would be created that would employ
Gretna citizens at the horse track and in the gaming
arcades.
The first ordinance that passed created a agricultural-
recreation zoning district. It his statement on the issue
Antonio Jefferson, Gretna city manager, said low
impact uses such as horse race tracks are included in
the permitted uses.
"The conditional use procedure allows the city
commission to approve the site plan for the property
and require safeguards such as buffers and access
controls to protect nearby property owners from
adverse impacts such as excessive noise, odor and
traffic," Jefferson wrote.
Along with race tracks come gaming
machines or adult arcade machines. The adult

Lawson bill seeks compensation

for Rachel Hoffman's family


By ANGYE MORRISON
Times Managing Editor
District 6 State Sen. Al Lawson
filed a claims bill last Friday,
seeking compensation for
Margie. Weiss and Irv Hoffman,
parents of slain police informant
Rachel Hoffman. Hoffman was
killed in May while working
undercover for the Tallahassee
Police Department.
Also released that same day was
a grand jury report that stated that
TPD operations were "negligent"
and led to Hoffman's death,
The filing also comes on the
heels of the arrests of Deneilo
Bradshaw, 23, of Tallahassee, and
Andrea Green, 25, of Perry, who
were both indicted Friday on
first-degree murder charges in the
death of Hoffman, who was 23 at


the time of her death. Hoffman
was to have met the duo to buy
drugs and a handgun, per TPD
instruction.
According to police reports, the
men requested that Hoffman meet
them not at a city park, as per the
plan laid out by TPD, but instead
in a. more remote area.
Investigators lost contact with
Hoffman when the operation was
moved. The Florida State co-ed's
body was later found in rural
Taylor County.
Weiss and Irv Hoffman have
said they plan to file a wrongful
death lawsuit against the city of
Tallahassee, and they asked a
circuit judge in late July to clarify
an order that limits their freedom
to speak about the case. The
grief-stricken parents just want to
be able to talk about how they


Lawson
feel their daughter was used by
the TPD 'as* an informant, not
pretrial evidence or specifics of
the case itself.
The'bill, as filed by Lawson,
does not include a compensation
figure, and is contingent upon
whether there is a judgment
against the city of Tallahassee, by
settlement or court findings.


Steel workers' union gives


BASF more time to bargain


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

United Steel Workers at the
local BASF plant agreed last
week to approve of the
company's request for a 10-day
extension to look over the union's
collective bargaining proposal.
USW president Willie Neal said
that the process is usual.
"It's a back-and-forth thing and
generally we'll come to an
agreement somewhere in the
middle. The important thing is
that the lines of communications
are open," he said.
They are encouraged that the
Attapulgus BASF plant union
members recently reached an


agreement. He said members only
want to insure that the pay
increase they are requesting will'
be enough for them of take care
of them and their families for the
next four years.
"What we're worried about is
that whatever we agree to we'll
have to live with for the next four
years, we're locked in," Neal
said.
He said they are asking or a 2.5
percent increase for the first three
years of the .contract and a 3
percent increase the fourth year.
BASF, however, has made no
offer to the union at all.
Union members held a closed-
door meeting Friday afternoon to
inform members that the
extension requested by the


company had been granted.
Members said they had been
told that the company has not
turned a profit and that increases
in pay might not be an option
these years. The union has
requested the company's financial
records of profits and losses in
recent years.
There is no move by members
to strike, Neal said.
"The union" is prepared to
continue negotiating in good faith
to reach an agreement aid
remains ready to work with the
company to find an agreeable
resolution to our differences once
we receive the aforementioned
requested information," said
Eddie Barnes, USW staff
representative.

former Masonic temple building
in downtown Quincy at the
corner of Adams and Jefferson
streets, reportedly paying
$800,000 in cash.
In the chamber's press release,
several local officials expressed
their hopes that the company's
location here would stimulate
economic growth.
"We are elated that ASD has
selected Quincy as their home
and look forward to assisting
them in their growth," said Andy
Gay, the mayor of Quincy.
Since Bowdoin and his wife,
Faye, created the company in
2006, ASD has grown to sixty
employees and predicts to employ
over 150 by the end of the year.
ASD is exploding with six
months of advertising sales
estimated at $40 million and
almost 75,000 members in its
network. Bowdoin expects sales
in excess of $100 million in 2008.
"ASD, through its placement in,
Gadsden County, not only
diversifies our industry sectors
but creates the leverage needed to
attract other businesses to the


community because of their
success," said Kimberly Moore,
the chief executive officer for
WORKFORCE plus. "It's a great
testament to growing businesses
in our own backyard."
The press release describes
ASD as an Internet advertising
company designed to send online
traffic to Web sites that advertise
on the ASD Web site.
"Anyone with a Web site
marketing a product or service
can advertise their website to
thousands of prospective
customers. Advertisers receive
opportunities to earn rebates by
viewing other websites for 10 to
15 minutes per day. These rebates
can provide free promotions to all
advertisers. In addition, ASD
creates opportunities for
increased sales revenue if the
websites are attractive and the
products or services are in
demand," the press release said,
and included this quote from
Bowdoin:
"We believe we have assembled
an outstanding management team
and are positioned to become one


of the largest Internet advertising
companies in the world," said
Bowdoin.
Since Bowdoin and his wife,
Faye, created the company in
2006, ASD has grown to 60
employees and is expected to
employ over 150 by the end of
the year. ASD is exploding with
six months of advertising sales
estimated at $40 million and
almost 75,000 members in its
network. Bowdoin expects sales
in excess of $100 million in 2008.
The federal government,
however, takes a far less
optimistic view of the company's
viability, calling the operation a
"Ponzi scheme."
In a press statement released
around. 6 p.m. Tuesday by U.S.
Attorney Jeffrey Taylor's office
in Washington, D.C., authorities
say investigators seized around
$53 million during Tuesday's raid
as well as a home in Quincy near
Lake Talquin and a condo in
Myrtle Beach, S.C.
In a joint statement issued by
U.S. Attorney Jeffrey A. Taylor
and U.S. Secret Service Special


Agent in Charge John Mrha,
Orlando, a civil forfeiture
complaint was filed in the U.S.
District Court for the District of
Columbia.
The complaint alleges that the
real property and all of the funds,
which were seized by the Special
Agents of the U.S. Secret Service
last Friday, are forfeitable to the
United States. According to the
complaint, all of the property
constitutes proceeds of a massive
Internet-based wire fraud scheme
that Thomas A. Bowdoin Jr. and
others allegedly operated out of a
former flower shop located in
Quincy.
The complaint alleges Bowdoin,
through his company,
AdSurfDaily Inc., which operates
on the Internet at www.adsurf-
daily.com, www.asdcashgenera-
tor.com, www.lafuentedine-
ro.com, and www.goldenpan-
daadbuilder.com (collectively
referred to as ASD), operated a
Ponzi scheme that he masked as
an advertising company.
Ponzi schemes are named after
Charles Ponzi, who, almost 100


years ago, duped thousands of
New Englanders into investing
their money with him. Today,
Ponzi schemes continue to
operate on the "rob-Peter-to-pay-
Paul" principle money from
new investors is used to pay off
earlier investors until the whole
scheme collapses.
In this case, the government's
complaint alleges that from
approximately January 2007 to
the present, ASD operated a "paid
auto-surf program" a so-called
online advertising program.
Under the program, ASD
purportedly generated advertising
revenue by automatically rotating
advertised Web sites into its
investors' Internet browsers. To
secure investors, ASD agreed to
pay a return of between 125-150
percent on each dollar each
investor provided to ASD, as long
as each investor agreed to view a
couple of Web sites for a couple
of minutes each day. To mask its
Ponzi characteristics, ASD
termed its investors "advertisers,"
their payments "ad purchases"
and its payments "rebates."


However, according to the
complaint, ASD did not operate
as a seller of advertising services
and there was no legitimate
product being sold to support the'
profits ASD promised to pay to
its "investors'" for relinquishing
their funds. Because ASD was
creating no significant new
wealth by selling advertising to
purchasers outside of its investor-
members, the only wealth gained
by any participant and Bowdoin
was wealth lost by other
participants.
This matter is an ongoing
investigation. No one has been
criminally charged at this point
and every defendant is presumed
innocent until and unless found
guilty.
In announcing the lawsuit, U.S.
Attorney Taylor and Special
Agent in Charge Mhra praised the
work of the SCIRS-SS Task
Force.
In addition, they commended
Assistant U.S. Attorneys Vasu
Muthyala and William Cowden of
Washington, D.C., who are
prosecuting the case.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission is look-.
ing to hunters this coming season to
help it monitor the state's deer herd
for chronic wasting disease, or
CWD, as it's more commonly
called.
CWD belongs to a group of dis-
eases known as transmissible
spongiform encephalopathies..
Currently, scientists still have much
to learn about CWD, which appears
to occur only in the deer family but
is believed to be caused by an
abnormal protein called a prion.
The fatal CWD attacks the brains
of infected cervids (mule deer,
white-tailed deer, moose and elk),
causing them to become emaciated,
display abnormal behavior and lose
control of bodily functions.
Warning, signs of CWD that
hunters can be on the lookout for
include deer that are extremely thin
or appear sick,'or those exhibiting
odd behavior such as excessive sali-
vating or urinating, staggering,
walking in circles, standing with a
wide stance, head tremors or deer
found dead from unknown causes.
Transmission of CWD occurs by
direct contact with bodily fluids
(feces, urine, saliva) or through
contact with a contaminated envi-
ronment. In this second scenario,
the prion stays within the environ-
.ment, and it may remain infectious
for years.
The good news is, there's no-evi-
dence that CWD can be transmitted
4to humans or livestock, and it's not
'yet been found in Florida or any
,other southeastern state. But it's
'going to take the help of all hunters
:and the FWC to keep ittlhat-hrw-y:
Currently, the only practical
*method for diagnosing CWD is
through analysis of brain-stem tis-
sue ot lymph nodes from dead deer.
:Therefore, Florida's more than
:240,000 hunters can play an
,extremely important role in CWD
,surveillance by helping FWC biolo-
,gists collect samples from their har-
vested deer.
The goal of the FWC is to collect
'these samples throughout Florida,
,and it's asking private landowners
;and hunting clubs to please partici-
pate in. this surveillance.
SSince 2002, the FWC has tested

tact your nearest FWC regional
office or call the toll-free CWD
Hotline at 1-866-CWD-WATCH
(293-9282) for further information
and to coordinate collection and
pick-up of deer samples.
To date, CWD has been found in
mule.deer, white-tailed deer, moose
and elk in Colorado, Illinois,
Wyoming, Nebraska, South Dakota,

Montana, Minnesota, New Mexico,
New York, West .Virginia and Utah.
It also has been detected in Canada
(Saskatchewan and Alberta) and in
South Korea.
The primary objective of CWD
management is to prevent it from
entering our state, so Florida has
adopted laws regulating the trans-
port of harvested and live deer into
Florida.
SIt's illegal for hunters to bring into
Florida whole carcasses of any har-
vested cervid from any of these
affected states or countries. From
these areas, hunters can bring back
only de-boned meat and finished
taxidermy mounts, hides, skulls,
antlers and teeth, as long as all soft
tissue has been removed.
Should a CWD outbreak occur in
Florida, the keys to effective man-
agement will be detecting it early
and taking swift action to limit its
spread.
Because of this, the FWC has a
CWD action team, made up of vet-
erinarians, biologists, law enforce-
ment officers and media folks, in
place and ready to formulate a
response plan and develop protocols
--ith other goverh-nmefi agencies..
This season, if you come across or
harvest a deer that appears sick or
emaciated, or one that has died from
unknown causes, don't handle it.
Instead, contact the FWC, 24-7 on
its toll-free hotline at 1-866-CWD-
-WATCH..
It's important to call as soon as
possible, because any testing must
be done within 48 hours of a deer's
death to produce reliable results.
We all can help take part in keep-
ing CWD out of Florida's deer herd
by staying well-informed, taking
precautions and acting quickly when
necessary.

Allegedly Speakin


Even a rose would stink if

saddled with these monikers


I began one of my workdays last week
with a bit of weird news. I always read
local and national headlines each
morning online, and one headline in
particular caught my attention.
The headline read, "Judge: Girl's name,
Talula Does The Hula, won't do." Huh?!
It had my attention.
The dateline on the article was
Wellington, New Zealand, and it was
about a family court judge who did
something about a bizarre name a child
from Hawaii had been given. Apparently,
the parents of this unfortunate little girl
had given her the name Talula Does The
Hula, and she was so embarrassed she
asked her friends, even her very close
friends, to call her "K."
The judge made the 9-year-old a ward
of the court so that her name could be
changed, after the. parents refused to
allow it. Her new name wasn't released
to protect her privacy, but I'm willing to
bet it was something simple like Jane or
Mary.
In his ruling, the judge said, "The court
is profoundly concerned about the very
poor judgment which this child's parents
have shown in choosing this name. It
makes a fool of the child and sets.her up
with a social disability and handicap
unnecessarily."
He also cited a list of other names just
as bad which included Fish and Chips,
No. 16 Bus Shelter and Violence.
New Zealand law doesn't allow names
that would cause offense to .a
"reasonable person." Anybody that
. would, name. his .or,.her,.child Fish and.
Chips, well, I'd'say i's time to put down-
the crack pipe. ".'- -- : -
But then; weird names ire currently all
the rage. Hollywood's biggest stars are
some of the craziest when it comes to
what they've named their bundles of joy.
For example: Gwyneth Paltrow named
her daughter Apple, Toni Braxton named
her sons Diesel and Denim, Ginger Spice
named her daughter Bluebell, Casey
Affleck named his son Indiana August,
Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger named
their daughter Ireland, John Travolta

named his son Jett and Rob Morrow
named his daughter Tu. Yep, her name is
Tu Morrow. Then there's the doofus
from one of my favorite shows, "My
Name is Earl." Love the show. Hate the
name the star of the show, Jason Lee,
gave his son. Pilot Inspektor. It wasn't
enough to give the child a strange name;
Lee had to be sure to spell it weird, too.
All of this hearkens back to the days of
the hippies...and all the hippie-dippy
names they gave their children. Names
like Moon Beam, Moon Unit, Blossom,
Cassiopia, Sunshine, Om, Daydream and
Chakra. My best friend's name is
Autumn, and yes, she has a sister named
Winter. I tease Autumn about her mom
being a hippie. And by the way, Winter
has two daughters named, you guessed
it, Spring and Summer. They've got all
the seasons covered.
But hippies and celebrities aren't the
only ones aboard the crack train. I've
heard a few names that were, well, just
downright cruel. I met a girl in college
whose first name was Dayanne. And
yes...her last name was Knight. She
couldn't wait to get married, for obvious
reasons. Then I met an older gentleman
once whose name was Jack Daniel
Boozer. How'd you like to be stuck with
that one? I also had a friend in high
school named Mitzi Minor, whose dad
was a major in the Army. Yes sir,
officer...his name and rank were Major
Minor.
Other names I've heard and been
amazed -by the audacity, of the parents
included Lust Garten. Lunch-..Mageez
Judge Savage and Gamble Moore. I even
kfie 'a kid once "whose name'twai'Stiti'
Paul Martin. And his mother insisted on
him being called Saint Paul. Poor kid.
I'm sure that there are many other
names out there that are just as
disturbing, and a few minutes googling
online will lead you straight to some of
the most bizarre..
For those of you who are about to
become parents and those who may
choose to procreate in the future, I beg
you, consider the names you give your

Citizens of Gadsden County: We are all in
agreement that Gadsden County needs
Gadsden Community Hospital to reopen. I am
concerned about the proposed half-cent tax to
be used to reopen the facility.
I want to suggest that we do a little research
by calling' the Agency for Health Care
Administration Hospital Licensure Unit at
850-487-2717 and find out what would be
required to open the hospital and how much it
would cost.
It is my understanding that we have a trust
fund that was set up years ago by the citizens
of Gadsden County: My question is this: What
happened to those funds that were supposed to
be used to support the operation of the hospi-
tal?
If the proposed tax increase is voted in by
the people of Gadsden County, what will hap-
pen to-that revenue if Gadsden Community
Hospital is unable to open because they could
not meet Medicare, Medicaid and state of
Florida regulations?
I think we all need more answerFst~efore we
can make an informed decision about increas-
ing the sales tax.

Jiis ust In

By Leslie Roberts
General Manager
So I was googling
something the other
day I forget what- and came across
a Web site for voice input computer
systems.
We are, after all, a google nation.
Who knows what I typed in to
evoke that response, but I talk to my
computer regularly as it is.
The prospect of having it reply
holds only horror for me.
"Ack! No.I didn't mean that. Don't
do that," is a fairly routine
conversation topic.
Variations on that theme include,
"Could you GO any slower? And still
be plugged in?"
Or the mildly creative yet straight-
to-the-point rant, "Dang it, you
carpal-tunnel-causing, Ebola-eye
rendering piece of scrap heap-headed
junk."
It is this inescapable connection to.
computers that led me to start looking
for information on AdSurfDaily Inc.
some weeks ago.
Plenty of people had already done
this and flocked to message boards
on the company some avid
supporters, some suspicious
bystanders.
JackArons was one of those- the
Hewlett-Packard master technician
started looking into the company
after a friend told him about.
He became a member of the
Intemet advertising company,
investing $10 in exchange for listing
a Web site on ASD's site and for
viewing other Web sites for 10-15
minutes per day.'
But meanwhile, he perused public
records and posted his findings on a
message board.
"I guess when I started hitting on
certain things that weren't adding up,
I got curious," he said. 'I'm the
curious type.
'BV iiow'yoi'\e read and seen ob
.IV the.news that AdSurfDailv~s-.-.,
office at 13 S. Calhoun St. in Quincy
was raided by the Secret Service with
the help of the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office Tuesday.
As of Wednesday morning, officials
had seized roughly $53 million, the
Lake Talquin home belonging to the
company's owner and his wife and
another home in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
I got a call from a Steve Duval in
California- he had invested in the
company but says he got the rebates
he was promised. Nonetheless, he
remained skeptical.
Duval, who owns a software
company he uses as a platform for
mortgage brokers to find commercial
real estate, said news of the company
and its recent trouble was Web-
wide.
"It's just being spread all over the
Intemet," he said.'There is some
validity to the whole thing... but the
Secret Service coming in? This is
big."
It IS big, and I'll 'fess up right now
to an increase in adrenalin when I
heard the Secret Service was in
Quincy investigating a local
company.
Now and then I wonder whether the
Intemet has just made us meaner, an
often-anonymous outlet for folks that
sometimes seems to take a good bit
of humanity out of the whole
communication process.
I once had a publisher who wrote
the greatest columns, often discussing
"the barbarians" only to acknowledge
that they were, as we all know, us.
It's in my nature, and all of ours in
this biz, pretty much, to find out
what's happening, get there first, get
the story.
When our office manager called out
Tuesday afternoon, "Leslie, Secret
Service on line 2," I was more than a
little awed.
So I'm glad I talked to Duval, who
helped me remember the rest of the
story, and it is that there are now
Gadsden County people out of work
indefinitely, anticipated economic
development that has been stalled, at
the least, and people who may never
see the money they invested in ASD.
"There are quite a few people all
around this country who are relying
on this income, who have built
businesses on this income," Duval
said.


Not a fairy godmother in sight or a
blog that will make it right- only an
indeterminate number of people who
now face a shakier future than they
did before.

WIC goes gold: World Breastfeeding Month celebration


Gadsden County WIC, a sup-
plerfiental nutrition program for
women, infants and children,
will host an Olympic World
Breastfeeding Month celebra-
tion for breastfeeding and preg-
nant women and their families
Aug: 13 form 2 to 4 p.m. in the
conference room of the
Gadsden County Health
Department in Quincy.
Everyone is invited to attend
and be part of the golden circle
of care all mothers need when
they breastfeed. Lively activi-
ties for the entire family will
include a breastfeeding slide
show recognizing local breast-
feeding families, awarding of
certificates, story time with the
Gadsden County children's
librarian and breastfeeding
information. Applications for
KidCare, low-cost health insur-
ance for uninsured children
birth through age 18 will be
available, as they are every
week-day at the Gadsden
County Health Department.


Refreshments will be served.
The worldwide theme for this
year's event, "Mother Support:
Going for the Gold," empha-
sizes that breastfeeding is the
Gold Standard for infant feed-
ing and nurture and the impor-
tance of family, community and
healthcare provider support for
breastfeeding mothers. It is the
standard by which all other
ways to feed children are com-.
pared and valuable first health
insurance.
When women do not receive
the support they need, it can be
difficult for them to breastfeed
for as long as they and their
children desire. The World
Health Organization recom-
mends that babies be breastfed
with no other food or water for
about the first six months of life
and then continue to be breast-
fed for two years or more with
the addition of other nutritious
foods.
There are life-long health risks
to children, mothers, families


and communities when breast-
feeding does not happen,
including increased risks of
infant death, diabetes, obesity
and breast cancer. Everyone
wins a gold medal with breast-
feeding!
In addition to the celebration,
Gadsden County WIC provides
ongoing breastfeeding support
to families through the services
of an international board-certi-
fied lactation consultant, a
breastfeeding peer counselor,
registered dietitians and other
staff who receive regular train-
ing.on breastfeeding.
Gadsden County Health
Department recently adopted a
policy that provides support for
its breastfeeding employees.
Susan Taylor, RN, is available
to speak to any community
group or organization who
would like to learn ways to
increase their support for breast-
feeding.

BBB warns: out-of-state travel club operating in northwest Florida shut down in other states


Pensacola, Fla. (August 6,
2008) BBB is warning vaca-
tioners to be wary of a "travel
club" operating in the Pensacola
area. According to the Kansas
Attorney General, Elite Escapes
International, LLC, was served a
temporary restraining order to
stop them from conducting busi-
ness in Kansas two weeks ago.
Furthermore, upon investiga-
tion and with coordination from
the South Carolina Department
of Consumer Affairs, the
Attorneys' General Offices in
the states of Missouri, Colorado,
Iowa, North Carolina, Nevada,
Kentucky, New Mexico and the
District Attorney for the
Eighteenth Judicial District of
Kansas, Nola Foulston, Kansas
officials discovered a pattern
and practice of deceptive and
unconscionable practices.
South Carolina-based Elite
Escapes has been offering vaca-


tion travel club services to
Floridians through mail,, tele-
marketing and presentations in
local hotels. In a conversation
with BBB serving northwest
Florida, the telemarketing com-
pany hired by Elite Escapes
reported that consumers must
participate in a phone interview
to pre-qualify to attend a presen-
tation. Part of the qualification
for the travel club service is that
participants must be married or
engaged and living together to
claim the "gift." Presentations
have been reported in Pensacola,
Fla.
With the cost of travel sky-
rocketing, consumers are
increasingly susceptible to
fraudulent offers for special
deals on vacations. Complaints
to BBB show that many travel
clubs promise huge discounts on
hotels, airfare and cruises but
fail to deliver despite the high


cost of joining.
Nearly a dozen state
Attorneys General, including
Florida's, have held investiga-
tions into travel clubs and the
Florida Consumer Services
Division recently reported they
received 298 complaints about
travel clubs in 2007-almost
triple the filings the previous
year.
In the first quarter of 2008
alone, consumers filed nearly
350 complaints with BBB
against travel clubs in the U.S.
Thousands of complaints have
been filed with BBB about trav-
el clubs in the last three years
and all tell a similar story of
being lured-either in person,
over the phone or through the
mail-to a high-pressure sales
presentation with the promise of
receiving free airline tickets, gas
cards or tickets to shows. During
the presentation, consumers are


told they would be able to take
advantage of remarkable deals
on airfare and vacations if they
joined the travel club for a mem-
bership fee of as much as
$9,000.
Complaints to BBB reveal a
pattern of problems with book-
ing travel arrangements and evi-
dence that the "deals" offered by
travel clubs were no better-and
often worse-than what cus-
tomers found on their own.
Travel clubs have no control
over discounts. Only suppliers
of travel cruise lines, hotels,
car rental businesses or airlines
- can-decide to extend to profes-
sional courtesies, and to whom.
You may get a better deal by
simply contacting these busi-
nesses yourself, doing research
online or contacting a local rep-
utable travel agency.
Complainants also state that
sales presentations were


.extremely misleading and many
felt they were "tricked" into giv-
ing up their right to cancel con-
tracts. It is important to note that
Florida law provides that con-
sumers may cancel a contract
for a vacation certificate in writ-
ing within 30 days of purchase
or receipt of the vacation certifi-
cate. The consumer may also
cancel if the accommodations
and facilities are not available as
provided in the contract. If a
travel package is not a vacation
certificate, then Florida law
requires that the consumer be
informed that it is non-refund-
able before making any payment
or signing a contract.
Be wary of vague statements
such as "any major international
airport," "four-star accommoda-
tions" or "all major hotels." Get
specifics and check the details
yourself. Call the hotel or airline
and confirm reservations per'


sonally.
Complaints filed with BBB
nationwide have shown that
often, travel club memberships
don't pay.
Travel Clubs are a "suspect
industry" with BBB due to a
high level of misrepresentation
and dissatisfied customers, but
there are a number of reputable
travel clubs operating in the
U.S.
Before signing up with a
travel club, vacationers should
do their research: check the
business' BBB Reliability
ReportT first at bbb.org and
check with the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services at
www.800helpfla.com to deter-
mine if the business is registered
in the state.
For additional information
and advice you can trust, start

Unclaimed property auction raises record funds for public schools


TALLAHASSEE- Bidders from

ness about our mission of reunit-
ing Floridians with their
unclaimed property."
The Bureau's first priority is to
reunite Floridians with their lost
property. Every year, the
Bureau receives millions in
assets and abandoned contents
of safe deposit boxes, and has
had tremendous success in find-
ing owners. During Sink's
tenure as CFO, more than $322


million has been returned to the
rightful owners (or heirs) of
496,374 accounts.
The Bureau spends up to two
years searching for the rightful
owners or heirs after receiving
items in safe deposit boxes that
have been abandoned at least
three years. When owners or
heirs cannot be found, the items
are auctioned. While the pro-
ceeds from the auctioned items


are transferred to the State
School Trust Fund, the money is
held in the original owners'
name and can be claimed for
free at any time.
More than 400 lots were sold
during Saturday's auction, with
the proceeds going to the State
School Trust Fund. The top-sell-
ing item was a pair of platinum
and gold earrings, each bearing
a 3 carat European cut diamond,


which sold for $18,000. Other
top selling items included:
S a 100-ounce bar of .999 fine
silver, which sold for $1,800;
a collection of 13 gold coins,
1915 Austrian restrike (100
Coronas), which sold for
$11,000;
a bow-shaped platinum and

Winning a national baseball tournament is a
very rare thing. Winning two in a row in different
age groups is quite another matter.


Shawn Wood and his Panhandle
Baseball League team did just that
when they took the Dizzy Dean 13-
Under World Series title in Southaven,
Miss.. last Thursday. The Panhandle
S team won the 12-under utle in Moody,
S Ala., with basically the same team last
year.
This year's team had to come out of
the loser bracket to win it all. After
winning their first two games in the
event they were defeated by Grenada.
Miss., last Tuesday dropping them into,
the loser bracket.
"It was a tough loss." Said Wood.
"We didn't catch any breaks in the
game, but we had to accept the results."
He continued. "That's when the boys said it's our
title and nobody is taking it from us."


Panhandle went on to run rule Pensacola Bill
Bond in the next game, then blasted the Atlanta
Diamondbacks 20-2 the following game. That set
up a rematch with Grenada. Panhandle promptly
whacked Grenada 13-4 moving them into the
championship round against undefeated Jefferson
Parrish, La.
Panhandle handed the Louisiana team its first
loss. 7-6, as Wood's son, Taylor. dro c in four
runs and Austin Branch held on to pitch the win.
The second game W4as no contest with
Panhandle taking a mercy run rule game 13-3 for
the championship.
"We felt if we won the first game, we would
win the tournament," Wood said "Jefferson
Parrish pitched their best pitcher in that first con-
test and that gave us the advantage in the second
game." n,
The Panhandle team was made up of 13 play-


ers from the area including Taylor Wood. Alex
Gay, Devm Hayes and Jarel Reynolds from
Gadsden County. Asuin Branch, Brandon Moats.
Cole Granger. Blake Voyles. likely Jackson,
Steven Bench. Trevor Wants, Gunter Griffin and
Dewayne Diggers rounded out the roster. Coley
Voy-les also coached the team.
"It took evenly player on our roster to win the
thing." Wood \went on to say. "This is a remark-
able team of baseball players. Many of them will
play high school baseball and go on to the next
level."
How about the chance of winning three in a
row?
"Right now w\ want to enjoy this one," Wood
said. "But I'm sure theV'll be out and working
pretty soon. and with luck we just may do it
again."


Four locals named Dizzy Dean All-Americans


You can't blame the Eufaula
A's if they hope to not see a left-
handed pitcher the rest of the
Georgia/Florida/Alabama
League baseball season.
They saw enough
Sunday.
The Chattahoochee
Red Birds rolled out
southpaws Tim Davis
and Jake Wood. The two
combined to limit the A's
to two hits while striking
out 20 between them,
leading the Red Birds to
a 14-0 win at Therrell
Field.
Davis pitched the first
six innings and fanned
13 before Chattahoochee
manager Alvin Bush put
in Wood. He whiffed
seven in his three innings of
work.
'A fier 'scoring just one run in
tht'"fisttthree innings, the Red
Birds got the offense going in
the fourth and continued an
offensive punch the rest of the
way.
Shortstop Matt Neel led off the
fourth with a home run, his
fourth in the last three games.
He finished the game with three
hits, as did third baseman Richie
Smith. Smith drove in four runs
with his hits, including a home
run and two.doubles. Austin


Riano, Geronald Bates and
Robbie Fleck' also drove in
Chattahoochee runs.
It was the fifth win in a row for


* ll iilli i *dlM .ff
Reynolds Gay

the Red Birds and they remain
in second place in the league's
Southern Division. They play
theii final' home g ane of the
regular season Sunday, hosting
the Miccosukee Devils in a 3
p.m. game. The day is designat-
ed "Sponsor Apprecia-tion
Day."

Four locals' named
DizZy Dean
All-Americans

All four Gadsden
County lads that were
on the Panhandle Dizzy
Dean 13-Under baseball
team, which won the
World Series, were named to the
All-American squad. Alex Gay,
Taylor Wood, Jarel 'Reynolds
and Devin Hayes earned spots
on the team.
Gay scored 11 runs and had 11
RBIs, Hayes had three pitching
wins, Reynolds scored 15 runs
and Wood scored 19 runs and
drove in 21.

Valuable :Player, along with

Seminole Ramblin's


During a recent Saturday evening,
three airboats pulled up to the docks at
Wmgate's to load on a group of inter-
ested people, including myself, to take
Cong. Sanford Bishop up Silver Lake
Run to the small dam below the big
dam.
I agree with many others that the use
of that part of the lake as well as other
parts will be cut off to boat traffic,
whereas with just a small amount of
dirt removal we could'save Places
Lake, Lily Pad Run, Carl's Pass, Ted
Kelly Hole, Tom Mann Hole and
Chimney Island Hole. He promised
he would look into it. He saw a Bald
Eagle's nest and the Eagle, an Osprey,
Great Blue Heron, Little
Blue and an alligator on
that trip.
Dave Lardal of
Redwood Falls, Minn.,
and son Eric took five
nice bass, three of them
weighing in over 5 '
pounds. They were using
spinners. Craig Taylor
caught four bass, one over
6 pounds, using plastic.

by Sean Neel and Eddie catch as
Ditto with 6.67. Leon Richad Pr
and Randy Weaver took

and Joey Sloan took third with 455,
while Bradley and Beasley took
fourth with 4.43. They drew 30 boats
and the winners took home $1,050.
While I'm on tournaments, young
Nic Jeter traveled to Lake Russell on
the Savannah River to win his
Saturday morning tournament with
less than'5 pounds offish. That is why
Rep. Gene Maddox said, "We will


weigh the pounds of our tournament
winners over the past 10 years and
compare them to anybody else's lake
in the state of Georgia!" He is work-
ing on a bill which will name
Seminole as Georgia's best fishing'
hole.
I must say that Bream and
Shellcracker are on the beds and being
caught by anyone with a box of crick-
ets and the crackers op wigglers Mr-.

QPRD Campers enjoyed their last field trip July 31 at the Big Kahuna Water Park in Destin.
Campers were overly excited to spend their day swimming, floating and splashing away on the
many water rides and slides at the water park. Prior to visiting the Big Kahuna, campers attended
fieldtrips to other parks, including Wild Waters in Silver Springs and Water World in Dothan, Ala.
The campers ended the year Aug. 1 with a "Fun Day" held at the Joseph Ferolito Recreation Center.
Campers that attended had the opportunity to enjoy bouncers, waterslides, sno cones and grilled
hotdogs provided for them at Corry Field. They were also presented with water toys and book bags
for school by QPRD Director Reginald Cunningham.

program worked so well in
Wakulla, that similar programs
were started in Jefferson,
Madison and Taylor counties, as
well as Mayo."
Faith Radio was incorporated in
July 1997 after Beigle, together
with his wife, Brenda, and their
three children, took a step of faith
by purchasing 1070 AM,


formerly a CNN news station,
that had been for sale in
Tallahassee. The station went on
the air under its new format on
Oct. 6, 1997.
But Beigle's dreams were
bigger than an AM station. In
September 2003, he began
negotiations with a local FM
station, and was able to purchase


it in February 2004. That station
now operates at 105.7 FM. The
station is listener-supported, and
is now located in a new facility
on North Monroe Street in
Tallahassee, with 6.6 acres, a
2,000isquare-foot building and a
240-foot tower. Faith Radio also
obtained a license for a station in
Quincy at 90.1. FM, which went


on the air June 25. Beigle hopes
to soon begin a Hispanic hour on
Saturday.
Beigle said he that while he
can't predict the future, he does
know for sure that the ministry of
the station will continue to bless
many people.
He's amazed how ministry has
grown and'expanded into areas he


would have never foreseen.
"If you'd told me 11 years ago
that we'd go into the prisons and
into Africa, I wouldn't have
believed it," he said. "But after
visiting with inmates at the
prison, one of the guys told me
that they pray for me and my
family. I near-bout broke down." .
That blessing, however, didn't


surprise Beigle.
"When you help other people,
God blesses you," he said. "He
will supply our needs. It's
happened (to me and my family,
along with Faith Radio) for
almost 11 years."

Seminar seeks to keep hurricane safety a top priority for all


By ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor

As we enter the historically
most active part (August
through October) of the Florida
hurricane season, state officials
want to make sure as many cit-
izens are as prepared as possi-
ble.
"Faith-based organizations
have an obligation to secure the
safety and security of their
members and property during
hurricane season. The Florida
Department of Financial
Services has teamed up with


the Gadsden County Office of
Emergency Management, the
Capitol Area Chapter of the
American Red Cross, the
Gadsden County Chamber of
Commerce and the town of
Greensboro to present
'Hurricane Grace: Greensboro
- A New Season,'" said Arthur
Youngblood, outreach coordi-
nator in the Bureau of
Consumer Assistance.
The exercise will be held
Aug. 22 from 9a.m. to 1 p.m. at
Greensboro United Methodist
Church. Youngblood said the
purpose of the exercise is to


test the ability of groups to ini-
tiate disaster response and
recovery activities once a
Category 2 storm passes
through the area.
Youngblood said this activity
is critical to communities and
businesses if they want to
thrive before, during and after
hurricane season.
"Some of the most important
points concerning the business
community will also be cov-
ered in this exercise, he said.
The key questions
Youngblood said he expects
participants to be able to


answer at the end of the exer-
cise include whether or not
employees and their families
are safe and secure, how well
groups (such as faith-based
organizations) communicated
with members and whether
they able to assess damage and
begin the repair process.
He said space is limited and
participants should preregister
no later than Aug. 19.

Tallahassee native announces bid for State Representative, District 8 seat


Being born in Tallahassee, I
have been a loyal citizen of this
community for the past 32
years. Growing up, my parents
andneighbors taught me the
importance of strengthening my
community and lending a hand.
Now as a husband and a father
vith great exposure to commu-
nity and governance, I under-
stand the needs that are vital to
District 8.
Our community deserves a
representative who is faithful
and committed to your needs
and dedicated to making our
dreams a reality. We need new
ideas, individuals who care and
individuals who will respond.
That is why I am running for
public office.
I received my master's in busi-
ness administration from
Florida Agricultural and
Mechanical University. While
there, I served as student senator
in the university's Student
Government Association. I also
led the initiative to create the
Venom Express, the university's
first intercampus transportation
system. Working with other stu-
dent senators and members of
the Florida Legislature,.we has-
tened the return of the FAMU
College of Law.
In 1996, I had the distinct
honor of serving as the student
government liaison for former
First Lady Hillary Rodham
Clinton during her visit to
Florida to promote the Clinton-
Gore presidential ticket.
After college, I spent some


time workingbegan working in
sales after college for Sprint
(now Embarq). Although I
enjoyed the financial gains of
the corporate world, as time
went, on I realized I was not
doing enough to strengthen our
community. I knew I had to
make a change and.begin work-
ing to make a difference.
In my position as aide to the
mayor of Tallahassee for com-
munity outreach, my primary
role was to serve as a liaison
between the community and the
mayor, and to keep our munici-
pal leaders connected to the
issues that are of utmost impor-
tance to our community. While
in the mayor's office I served on
the mayor's Task Force to End
Chronic Homelessness. I appre-
ciated this experience in the
mayor's office because it gave
me an opportunity to directly
give back and serve the commu-
nity that raised me.
My wife of 8 years, Opal, and
our two children are proud to

call District 8 home. Several
years ago, my wife an I made a
conscious decision to raise our
children in Tallahassee. Raising
our children is not the same as it
was years ago when our parents
reared us, so we take extra
efforts to build for them the
same sense of community we
had during our adolescent years.
Our community deserves a
representative who cares about
improving the issues that are
vital for the positive growth of
our families and communities.
Living in Tallahassee has grant-
ed me the opportunity to meet
and associate myself with many
local, regional and state officials
which has, in turn, created a dia-
logue with those officials about
how to best provide for further
-allowed me to learn eminently
about the needs of our commu-
nity. Education, healthcare, job
opportunities and affordable
housing are just a few of the
issues facing our community.
In order to tackle these press-
ing issues, our community
needs someone who not only
has local, regional and statewide
contacts, but also a complete
awareness of the uniqueness of
our district. But somehow these
important issues have been
tabled or ignored during previ-
ous years. I have the contacts
and and I that awareness. I
understand your concerns and
our voice will be heard.
The Alan Williams campaign
is a campaign committed to rep-
resenting the best interests of
the people. Our goal is to put the
put the concerns and priorities
of District 8 residents at the


forefront of any issue that aris-
es. Considering the impact of an
issue on our communities over
the benefits to big business is a
commitment I have made.
Commitment to your best
interest is the singlemost thing
your state representative should
be focused on. A vote for
Williams as your next state rep-
resentative guarantees you an
open door and an open ear. For
years I have worked in various
capacities and organizations to
bring about meaningful and last-
ing changes in our community.
I believe that my work is far
from over and my job is not yet
done.
Committed to access to afford-
able healthcare...
There are many ways to
increase our access to affordable
health care. One major problem
we face is the lack of a trauma
center in this area. If any of us
in our community were to be the
unfortunate victim of a tragic
car accident, we would have to
be lifted to Gainesville or
Jacksonville to receive treat-
ment.
I don't know about you, but I
want the same chance of. sur-
vival as those folks in
Gainesville and have trauma
centers in our community.
Additionally, we have to reopen
the Gadsden County Communi-
ty Hospital. With seniors on
fixed incomes, we must work
toward making health care more
accessible both financially and
physically.
Committed to quality educa-
tion...

education begins with truly
investing in our children's edu-
cation. Truly investing means
not just financially, it includes
the whole picture, which means
keeping parents involved, hiring
the best teachers and paying
those teachers what they
deserve and providing students
with top of the line resources.
Another element hat needs to
be revamped istaking a long
hard look at the FCAT and
whether its has really helped
education in Florida. The state
of Florida needs an educational
system that is producing the top
students in this country. and aA
curriculum based only on FCAT
material is doing a disservice to
oup students. Tying the results of
this test to funding and embar-
rassing school grades places
unfair pressure on school
administrators to strive solely
for excelling on the material on
the FCAT.
Our goal should be producing
the best and brightest students in
this country. We will also need
to look into increasing the fund-
ing for our state universities. As
these universities continue to
gain national recognition for our
acclaimed programs, we must
also consider ways to make
them even better, which ulti-

are available jobs and when
* businesses are available that
respect and appreciate their
employees. During this eco-
nomic slump, where there is a
shortage of jobs statewide, our
economy in this district feels the
pinch the hardest.
There are many ways to
accomplish the creation of jobs,
and in many areas in Florida,
the state has done well. I am
.convinced there are many more
opportunities available to
improve our economy in
District 8.
Additionally, District 8 has a
very large percentage of state
workers. For years state workers
have worked to get better
wages, and I am committed to
continuing that fight!
Committed to fighting for you!
My goal of advancing our
community, increasing jobs and
enhancing the quality of life for

with your vote.
I am committed to fighting for
all of the issues mentioned

your behalf. You can count on
me to continue to be committed
to our community.
I have been working to make it
better for years and hope to
increase the impact I bring
home to you as your next state
representative!
I am a hardworking father and
husband who cares about where
our country is heading, starting

That's why I am asking to be
your next state representative
for District 8.

Quincy police chief preps to ride off


into the sunset


- just like Matt Dillon


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


Sometimes people choose a career path and sometimes
careers choose them. For 'retiring Quincy Police
Department Chief Gerald McSwain. the career chose
him.
"I have always wanted to be police ollicer. My
favorite television show as a child "'a "'Gunsmoke.' I
wanted to be Matt Dillon," he
said.
Watching that show was only .- ae ----
the beginning. McSwain M ta h
became a safety patrol officer
at Springfield Elenientary. ow
Gretna Elenmentarl. and he l
took the orange band and o it
badge seriously. One day, a
while on restroom patrol, ie
McSwain observed a fellow
student throw paper on the
floor. He asked the boy to pick I
up the paper and when he refused. NlcSiain promptIl
escorted him to the principal's office to report his untidy
conduct.
It never crossed McSwain's mind not to have a career
in law enforcement. McSwain's options ere limited,
and while peers talked about college or tlHe military, he
talked about pinning on a badge and wrking to help
keep people safe.
Thirty years ago this Friday, a 21r-year-old N lcSwain,
fresh out of the academy, walked into then-police chief
R.D. Edward's office and was hired.
"He came up through the ranks. It was a pleasure
working around him because he genuinely cared about.
people. He definitely cared for is citizens. As long as
you'respected the citizens, you had no problems with
Chief McSwain," said former QPD officer Danny
Moore.
McSwain said that even before he pinned on a badge
he knew that the key was to make caring for others a pri-
ority. He said officers must first'care about the people
they ser e. Sgt. Troy Gilyard said that when he came to
sork at QPG. McSwain was his captain.
"He taught me that the size of a person doesn't matter,
but. it's ho\' you treat-others. It hais been most rewarding
to me to have been able to follow his lead.I was inspired
by liim andI made Officer of the Year and I owe it all to
Chief McSwain," Gilyard said.
Officers say that while the chief wants what is best for
the citizens, he can be tough. Like a parent who loves
his children, they said McSwain disciplines and praises
equally.
"My motto has been that we must love people to be
.able to help them. Sometimes when you help people you
have to put them in jail for them to sit and think about
what they've done," McSwain said, adding, "sometimes
when you help officers become better officers you have
to discipline them. Sometimes that could mean a few


days aw\ay from the job for them to think about their
actions."
NMcSain. 52. said he doesn't recall have plan for he
next chapter in his life..He said there is lots of work for
him around the house in the immediate future. He said
he's too young to retire and he wants to continue help-
ing people, but would not give any clues of where that
work will take him.
"I'm going to take a couple to months off, relax,
maybe take a little trip. I will,.at some point, start look-
ing for something," he said.
He wants people in Quincy to remember him most as
the chief who cared for them. He said that as chief citi-,
zens felt they .could call at anytime and he would, as
soon as possible, visit that citizen to answer the
call.
"One time a lady called to complain about
speeders on. her street. She was an elderly
woman who was very upset. I told her I would
come over and stand in her yard to see for myself
the problem. She felt better but that's part of my
job, too," he said.
The elderly are special to McSwain, and he
said.tbatnothing is closer to his heart than senior ...
citizens.
"When old people are afraid to sit on their
porch because they think some joker will try to
rob them, that bothers me. You don't know what
people face. It makes me mad and it hurts me.
That why I have tried to instill in all of the offi-
cers they need to have a sensitivity to people in
their everyday lives,' he said.
Since he announced his plans to retire several
weeks ago, McSwain said he has gotten dozens
of calls from,people wishing him well and say-
ing they are sorry to see him go.
McSwain said that in conversations with inter-


im citn manager Jack McLean he has gi\en some sug-
gestions as to the kind of person his successor should be
and sensitiitiy to the citizens is at the top of his list.
"I don't believe .that the person \\ho sits in this chair
will last very long if they don't care about the citizens
and if they allow officers to be rude to the public,"
McSwain said. "I mainly want to thank all of the people
that I have come into contact with over the years. I
appreciate' the life I have lived here. I have spent over
half of my adult life with the department and I am very
satisfied and pleased with my tenure as a law enforce-
ment officer in the city. I am not grieving as I walk
away. For the most part I have loved my career and so
many people have enriched my life," he said.


Quincy Police Department's Victim Advocate Angela Heard presented Gerald McSwain, retiring police chief, a plaque from the officers and staff during a
week, celebrating his retirement. McSwain is joined here by family, friends and police staff.

Brown to run for District 8 seat


Bom and raised in North Florida,
Hubert Brown's rural upbringing
shaped his values and taught himnto be
thoughtful and hardworking. Today,
he and his wife of 21 years, Gina, share
these values with their sons, Kenneth
and David. Brown and his brother,
Thomas, own a successful Tallahassee
law practice, Brown and Brown
Attorneys at Law PA. He is active in
Flipper AME Church and a contribut-
ing member of the North Florida com-
munity.
Brown believes in building trust
between elected officials and the peo-
ple of Florida through open and trans-
parent decision-making. He embraces
the ethical separation of elected offi-
cials from registered lobbyists and the
groups they represent; thus, Brown
does not accept contributions from
political action committees.
As a state:representative, Brown will
ensure that opportunities in education,
healthcare, environment and employ-
ment are enhanced for the people of
District 8 and the state of Florida.
About education:
-The Florida Comprehensive
Achievement Test only prepares stu-
dents to improve as test-takers and cre-
ates an unnecessary barrier to advance-
ment. Valuable critical thinking and
enriched learning are being sacrificed.
Brown will fight to end the FCAT as a
requirement for graduation.
-Small gains in teacher salaries have
not kept up with the skyrocketing cost.
of living. Brown will work with edu-
cators' unions to increase teacher
salaries and change the teacher pen-
sion formula to stop high educatoi-
turnover.
-Florida's full-time equivalency
funding formula does not provide
equally for smaller counties. Brown
will fight to change this formula,
addressing the need for supplemental
appropriations to affected school dis-
tricts.
-Florida's graduation rates are too
low and District 8 schools are even
lower. Brown will fight for more


resources to further extend mentoring
and after school tutoring programs.
-Brown will work to increase need-
based financial aid for students seeking
a higher education.
About healthcare:
-Brown will work to reopen
Gadsden Community Hospital and to
fully fund community health centers,.
such as Bond Community Health
Center.
-Florida can do more to assist its sen-
iors. Brown will push for increased
availability for safe and affordable pre-
scription drugs and quality healthcare.
-Brown will work to close the gap in
healthcare by fighting to decrease
deductibles and co-payments under
the state's group health insurance
plans.
About the environment:
-Preserving our existing infrastruc-
ture and using more sustainable energy
sources is vital to North Florida's water
conservation, natural disaster pre-
paredness and food production and
safety.
-Brown supports smart growth
development and believes it is the key
to preserving infrastructure and reduc-
ing energy costs.
-As an attorney, Brown has seen the
problems facing those exposed to
unsafe working or living conditions.
He supports safer alternatives to toxic
chemicals, stricter air quality stan-


dards, regulations that protect our
springs and other surface waters and
cleaning up hazardous waste.
-Brown supports the purchase of
valuable water and land resources
through the Forever Florida program
and other land conservation measures
to preserve the natural environment.
About workers:
-Florida's state workers have the low-
est average pay in the U.S. Brown will
work for fair salaries and benefits for
our state workers.
-State workers are not covered by the
federal Occupational Safety and
Health Act. Brown will fight for safety
laws and rules for state employees that
meet at least the federal OSHA mini-
mum.
-Brown will fight for pay raises for
all state workers, with critical pay for
high-turnover jobs and increased
retirement benefits for high-risk
employees.
About the economy:.
-Brown will work to encourage the
development of a regional transporta-
tion infrastructure that will help resolve
our energy crisis, create new jobs and
fuel economic growth in North
Florida.
-By substantially increasing basic
research funding at Florida A&M
University, Brown will help create
high-paying, secure jobs in business,
pharmacy, engineering and agricul-
ture.
-Drawing from his experience as a
certified public accountant, Brown will
encourage long-term investments in
education, training and vocational
training that will bring new, high-wage
jobs and prosperity to North Florida.
-Agriculture is vital to North
Florida's way of life, and Brown will
work to invest in rural small farms and
agriculture by expanding tax credits
and subsidies for land and water con-
servation. He will also expand oppor-
tunities for small farmers to sell their
produce directly to consumers.
Elect someone who will fight for the
people of District 8. Elect Hubert

Back to school countdown: Gadsden Elementary Magnet


Preparing kids for the big day School gets ready for new


"Will my teacher be nice?
Where will I sit? Will the other
kids like me?" Many kids get
nervous- about heading back to
school.
"A big part of a successful first
week is establishing a routine
and explaining where the bath-
room is, what happens when
you go to gym class and when to
expect recess," explained Cathy
Dunne, a seventh grade teacher
in the Toronto, Canada area.
With a little preparation, parents
can help. Here's how to make
your child's transition a smooth
one
Remember routines. Family
:routines: tend to slide in the sum-
mer after all, what's summer
without crazy bedtimes, a popsi-
cle habit and wearing swimsuits
for days on end? But it can be
hard to readjpst come fall, notes
Patricia Tanner Nelson, family
and human development spe-
cialist at the University of
Delaware. "Well before school
starts, focus on choosing sleep,
exercise, healthy foods,, and
time together,". she said..
Rosanna Scott, a mom of two
from Ohio, agrees. "Practice
school bedtimes a week before
school starts so that the new rou-
tine is established," she says.
Get ready! Don't underesti-
mate the fun and importance of
new stuff for the big day. With
younger kids, a bag full of
school supplies, a neiv backpack
and a few new items of clothing
tend to gear them up without
any further encouragement, said
Amanda Formaro, mother of
four in Nevada. For an older
child, this may be the time to
give the thumbs-up to that must-
have trend item, especially if
he's earned some money over
the summer to pay for it. For
ideas, find out what's hot this
year and get a printable supply
list.
Another way to get everyone
prepared is to plan a fun family
outing on Labor Day weekend,
suggests Scott, who home


schools her two boys. "We often
plan an event to celebrate the
end of summer and welcome the
new school season."
Show them the way. If she's
new to the school, show your
child her classroom, what
entrance and exit to use and
where the bathroom is located.
If she's taking the bus,,visit the
bus stop location and explain
how to get on and off, especial-
ly if it's the first time. Show her
the drop off and pick up spot at
school, too. If you're not sure
where it will be, call the school
ahead of time to find out.
Prepare the teacher. Let your
child's teacher know about any:
specifics about behavior or
health, such as a bladder infec-
tion. "You don't want a child to
have a bad experience because
he's asking to go to the bath-
room every half hour and the-
teacher says, 'No,' thinking he
doesn't need to go sb frequently
but really he does," explained
Chomik.
Talk, talk, talk. "I try to think
of all the positive things that
they like about school and I talk
about them as much as possi-
ble," said Formaro. "I ask about
friends they haven't seen over
the summer. I also look at my
kids and note anything different
that their friends will notice,
such as a new hairstyle or if
they've grown over the summer.
I never mention homework or
teachers they weren't crazy
about."
Tanner Nelson noted that
learning doesn't stop when
school does, so you need to con-
vey, in a low-key way, how


important learning is to you.
"Be a role model throughout the
year, not just during school time.
For example, show how much
you like reading, or talk about
math and measuring when
you're making a recipe togeth-
er."
Chomik also suggests reading
your kids school stories to get
them ready for what to expect.
And for the younger kids, it's a
good idea to explain the role of
the teacher to your child.
"Encourage the child to speak
up and let the teacher know if
they're having problems: This is
especially, important if a child is
getting bullied, which, can hap-
pen even on the first day. They
need to know they can, and
should, talk to the teacher."
Be organized. Ease back-to-
school anxiety by being pre-
pared. Help your child to lay out
her clothes and pack her back-
pack the night before. Be sure to
include a healthy lunch and a
snack that your child can open
and eat on his own.
Take it easy. Preparation is
great, but don't go overboard.
"You can make back-to-school
too big a deal!" laughed Nelson.
If September was a hard month
for you as a kid, it might not
necessarily be the same for your
child and vice versa. You're the
best judge of when your child
needs reassurance and how to go
about giving it.
"In the end, remember that it's
normal to feel a little nervous or
fluttery about that' first week
back. Everyone, including the
teachers, feels like that," she
said.


school year

My mother had leukemia and
she was given many units of
blood. When people asked us
how they could help' with my
mother, we told them they
could give blood. One of my *
co-workers then called and set
up the first blood drive at
Focus Credit Union in
Chattahoochee. Now we have
drives also at our Quincy loca-
tion. This is a wonderful way
for people to help.

Do's:
* A sturdy backpack. Something that your e w
child can zip and unzip himself with enough
pockets to store homework, lunch and an
extra piece of clothing. Many kids like the
rolling backpacks, but they often are hard to

too big for cubbies.
. No. 2 Dixon Ticonderoga pencils. These
are unanimously teacher's favorite pencils
for writing because they don't break in the
sharpener! Don't skimp on the cheaper
brands but remember, if your child attends a
public school, pencils should be provided.
Still, a couple of extra (sharpened) pencils
that stay in your child's backpack will make
it convenient for her to do homework while
waiting for the bus.
* Big eraser. The small erasers on the back
of pencils inevitably get used much faster
than the pencils. The big pink erasers are the
best option. Some of the jelly-like erasers
with designs and patterns on them don't .
actually erase very well. ..
* A sturdy folder for homework. A system
at home for checking backpacks, doing and -
returning homework is a great idea. Having VA
a consistent place to store homework will ,
make it easier for your child to remember to

August will have its rewarding moments but be advised that you will also be busy, busy,
busy! The lunar eclipse on the 16th could find you questioning someone's motives or
sincerity. Listen intuitively, Libra. Mercury, Mars and Venus enter your sign giving you
,the power to do what needs to be done!
Scorpio
Your career may be on the upswing as the month begins compliments of the solar eclipse
on the 1st. By the lunar eclipse on the 16th life may get quite zany. People may not seem
like themselves and you'll need to tune into your extraordinary intuition, Scorpio. By
the 30th, order and peace will return in fine fashion. Be flexible with the ups and downs
August brings!
Sagittarius
Your spiritual self and the philosophical big picture are important to you as the month
begins. Although the sun in Leo is comforting, the rest of the month may provide chal-
lenges, especially around the lunar eclipse on the 16th. Exercise patience with others and
choose your words carefully. Be opportunistic regarding your career. You may hold the
winning hand!
Capricorn
Although August will be a hectic month, things go well for you, especially at work.
Friends and co-workers will be helpful and supportive so treat them graciously. Venus
enters Virgo on the 5th spicing up your love life. The possibility of emotional difficulty
comes with the lunar eclipse on the 16th. Don't take others too seriously at this time and
life will turn out fine!
Aquarius
Your worldview and relationships come into focus this month, Aquarius, so this is a
great time to get closer to others and establish new friends. Without being overly cau-
tious, do'analyze the motives of someone you come into contact with around the full
moon in your sign on the 16th. Don't be fooled! Be sure to allow time for plenty of rest,
as you will need it!
Pisces
Pace yourself this month and take time to rest periodically, Pisces. Personal retreat and
meditation is good for all of us but should be on your list of regular habits. The lunar
eclipse on the 16th may ignite emotional fireworks. Don't get caught up in someone
else's tirade. Luck may be with you regarding shared resources.

The Gadsden County Times August 7, 2008 B 7
PRACTICAL ASTROLOGY August 2008
Aries
The possibility of a new beginning or an ending to something in your life exists with the
solar eclipse on August 1st. All indications are that your calendar will be full, the level
of excitement high and your opportunities almost endless this month, Aries. Stay
focused on your objectives!
Taurus
Solar and lunar eclipses tend to introduce some sort of change in our lives, and since
there are two this month, be ready for something new. The first half of August may be
challenging, Taurus, but the full moon and lunar eclipse on the 16th should provide a
calming effect. Your love life gets a boost when Venus enters compatible Virgo on the
5th.
Gemini
Family and home should be your focus this month, Gemini. Possible changes in your
personal relationships may occur as the result of eclipses on the 1st in Leo and again on
thel6th in Aquarius. Flexibility is your mantra. Maintain balance and a positive attitude
to enjoy the best results!
Cancer
You will probably experience a high number of unpredictable situations this month,
Cancer. Eclipses tend to prompt new circumstances and there are two in August. The
solar eclipse in Leo on the 1st may be particularly illuminating and help you understand
something more clearly. Romance blooms on the 5th!
Leo
Expect to make significant personal changesin your life when the solar eclipse is in your
sign on the 1st. Since your energy levels get a huge boost with the sun in your sign too,
you will be up to all challenges. Unexpected luck may come your way so be opportunis-
tic. Enjoy the month and a possible new you, Leo!
Virgo
August will be a wonderful month for you, Virgo. Venus moves into your sign on the
5th sparking your love life, and social events abound. Allow your intuition to reveal
something hidden when the solar and lunar eclipses occurring on the 1st and 16th
respectively. Pay close attention to your dreams for possible answers.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION NOTICE
OF INTENT TO ISSUE
PERMIT


The Department of
Environmental
Protection gives notice
of its intent to issue envi-
ronmental resources
individual storm water
permit to Dustin Koonce,
Manager, Global
Investments Properties,
LLC, at Post Office Box
481, Glen Dale,
Maryland, 20769.
The purpose of the per-
mit is to authorize con-
struction of 32 single-
family residential lots, for
a subdivision, on an
approximately 25-acre
parcel. Storm water
treatment will be provid-
ed via detention with fil-
tration ponds, roadside
swales, and Vegetated
Natural Buffers, with site
post-development dis-
charge rates controlled
to at or below the pre-
development rates. A
portion of the site devel- .
opment contains jurisdic-
tion wetlands impacted
by an entrance road from
the north and an internal
road crossing at the
south of the parcel, for
which a separate wet-
land resource manage-
ment permit will be
required.
Proper erosion control
measures will be
employed during con-
struction.
The project will be locat-
ed to the west of Knights
Road, in the city of
Midway, in Gadsden
County, Florida.
Based on all the above,
and with the application
of general and limiting
specific conditions of the
permit, the Department
has reasonable assur-
ance the project, as pro-
posed, fully meets the
environmental resources
permitting storm-water
requirements of Chapter
62-346, Florida
Administrative Code,
and will not harm the
environment.
A person whose sub-
stantial interests are
affected by the
Department's action may
petition for an adminis-
trative (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and
120.57 of the Florida
Statue. The petition must
contain the information
set forth below and must
be filed (received by the
clerk) in the Office of
General Counsel of the
Department at 3900
Commonwealth
Boulevard, ,Mail Station
35,Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000.
Because the administra-
tion hearing process is"
designed to re-deter-
mine final agency action
on the application, the
filling of a petition for an
administrative hearing
may result in a modifica-
tion of the permit, or
even a denial of the
application. Accordingly,
the application will not
commence construction
or other activities under
this permit until deadline
below for filing a petition
for an administrative
hearing, or request for
an extension of time,
have expired.
Under section 62-
110.106(4) of the Florida
Administrative Code, a
person whose substan-
tial interests are affected
by the Department's
action may also request
an extension of time to
file a petition for an
administrative hearing.
The Department may, for
good cause shown,
grant the request for an
extension of time.
Requests' for extension
of time must be filed with
the Office of General
Counsel of the
Department at 3900
Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000, before the
applicable deadline. A
timely request for exten-


sion of time shall toll the
running time period for
filling a petition until the
request is acted upon. If
a request is filed late, the
Department may still
grant it upon a motion by
the requesting party
showing that the failure
to file a request for an
extension of time before
the deadline was the
result of excusable neg-
lect.
In the event that a timely
and sufficient petition for
an administrative hear-
ing is filed, other persons
whose 'substantial inter-
ests will be affected by
the outcome of the
administrative process
have the right to petition
to intervene in the pro-
ceeding. Intervention will
be only at the discretion
of the presiding office
upon the filing of a
motion in compliance
with Rule 28-106.205 of
the Florida
Administrative Code.
In accordance with sub-
section 28-106.111(2)
and 62-110.106(3)(a)(4),
Florida Administrative
Code, petitions for an
administrative hearing
by the application must
be filed within 21 days of
receipt of written notice.
Petitions filed by any
persons other than the
applicants, and other
than those entitled to
written notice under
Section 120.60(3) of the
Florida Statues, must be
filed within 21 days of
publication of the notice.
Under Section 120.60(3)
of the Florida Statue,
however, any person
who has asked the
Department for notice of
agency action may file a
petition within 21 days of
such notice, regardless
of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail
a copy of the petition to
the applicant at the
address indicated above
at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to
file a petition for an
administrative hearing
within the appropriate
time period shall consti-
tute a waiver of those
rights.
A petition that disputes
the material facts on
which the Departments
action is based must
contain the following
information:
(a) The name and
address of each agency
affected and each
agency's- file or identifi-
cation number, if known;
(b) The name, address,
and telephone number of
the petitioner; the name,
address, and telephone
number of the petition-
er's representative, if
any, which shall be the
address for service pur-
poses during the course
of the proceeding; and
an explanation of how
the petitioner's substan-
tial interests are or will
be affected by the
agency determination.
(c) A statement of when
and how the petitioner
received notice of the
agency decision; (d) A
statement of all dispute
issues of material fact. If
there are none, the peti-
tion must so indicate; (e)
A concise statement of
the ultimate facts
alleged, including the
specific facts that the
petitioner contends war-
rant reversal or modifica-
tion of the agency's pro-
posed action;
(f) A statement of the
specific rules or statues
that the petitioner con-
tends require reversal or
modification of the
agency's proposed
action; and
(g) A statement of the
relief south by the peti-
tioner, stating precisely
the action that the peti-
tioner wishes the agency
to take with respect to
the agency's proposed


action.
A petition that does not
dispute the material facts
on which the
Department's action is
based shall state that no
such facts are in dispute
and otherwise shall con-
tain the same informa-
tion as set forth above,
as required by Rule 28-
106-301, Florida
Administrative Code.
Under Sections
120.569(2)(c) and (d) of
the Florida Statue, a
petition for administra-
tive hearing must be dis-
missed by the agency if
the petition does not
substantially comply with
the above requirements
or is untimely filed.
This action is final and
effective on the date filed
with the Clerk of the
Department unless a
petition is filed in accor-
dance with the above.
Upon the timely filing of
petition this' order will not
be effective until further
order of-the Department.
This permit, when
issued, constitutes an
order of the Department.
The applicant has the
right to seek judicial
review of the order under
Section' 120.68 of the
Florida Statue, by filing
of a notice of appeal
under rule 9.110 of the
Florida Rules bf
Appellate Procedure in
the Office of General
Counsel, 3900

ing a copy of the notice
of the appeal accompa-
nied by the applicable fil-
ing fees with the appro-
priate court of .ppeal.
The notice of appeal
must be filed wi in 30
days from the date when

permit is available for

'Mama Mia' a 'joyous summer splash of singing dancin' sunshine


Starring Meryl Streep and
Pierce Brosnan
Rated PG-13

A movie musical based on
the international stage smash of
the same name, Mamma Mia! is
a joyous summer splash of sin-
gin', dancin' sunshine built
around the pop hits of the
Scandinavian supergroup
ABBA. The 30 million fans
who've made the stage show a
rousing success will no doubt be
curious to see how Hollywood
captures, its romantic-comedy
magic on the screen, with an all-
star ensemble cast putting a new,
big-budget face on its storyline
about a young bride-to-be who
longs to reconcile her romantic
future with a secret passion from
her mother's past.
Meryl Streep takes center
stage as the mom, Donna, whose
fling 20 years ago produced a
beautiful daughter, Sophie (the
adorable Amanda Seyfried).
Sophie's grown up not knowing
who fathered her, but her recent
discovery of Donna's diary has
conveniently narrowed the field


to three. Operating underneath
her mom's radar, Sophie secret-
ly invites all of them to the wed-
ding, a lavish affair on a scenic
Greek island. She's certain
she'll know which one's her
father at first sight.
But it's not nearly so easy.
All of the men (Pierce Brosnan,
Colin Firth and Stellan
Skarsgird) have charming dad-
like qualities, and it takes 108
minutes-and about two dozen
ABBA songs, including "The
Winner Takes It All," "Take a
Chance on Me," "Dancing
Queen" and "S.O.S"-to sort
out the romantic tangle.
Everyone gets a turn in the
singing spotlight and the stars
all do their own crooning, giv-
ing the whole romp an infec-
tious, let's-put-on-a-show
earnestness. Brosnan, in particu-
lar, deserves a special round of
applause f6r going out on a
musical limb miles away from
his previous roles. Streep has a
gorgeous voice, and Julie
Waters and Christine Baranski,
playing Donna's flamboyant
friends, are audience favorites


from the moment they set foot
on the island.
Musicals are flights of fanta-
sy anyway, making somewhat
easier to overlook the movie's
flaws. None of the ABBA songs
really relate to the storyline. The
pacing is uneven and the 20-
year flashbacks are about 10
years off-center. The choreo-
graphed set pieces are nothing
fancy. But the practically wall-
to-wall tunes rock, the
Mediterranean scenery is eye
candy and everyone seems to.be
having a big ol' time-especial-
ly in the extended closing cred-
its, which are definitely worth
waiting through. ("Waterloo"
will be bouncing around in your
head for days.) In this super-
hero-saturated, densely populat-
ed fanboy summer of Dark
Knights, Jokers, Hancocks,
Incredible Hulks and Iron Men,
Mamma Mia! is a sweet, sunny
re-balance of girl power for any-
one who wants to lose them-
selves in a grown-up, feel-good
movie musical about friends,
family and finding love.
-Neil Pond, American


'Dark Knight' replays age-old battle


Starring Christian Bale, Heath Ledger and Maggie Gyllenhaal
Rated PG-13

Take a clue from the title: This is by far the "darkest" and deep-
est Batman movie ever, light years away from the colorful camp and
lightweight cardboard characters of the '60s TV series. This time,
the caped crusader is a brooding vigilante, the local police force
consorts with the criminals, and Gotham City teeters on the brink of
anarchy sparked by a psychotic mastermind known only as the
oker.
As long as you're not expecting the feel-good movie of the sum-
ter, Dark Knight is one heck of a ride. It's a complex, violent, mas-
terfully assembled construction of story, characters and atmosphere.
Once its fuse is lit, it sizzles nonstop for two and a half hours, keep
you guessing about what's about to blow until the last moments of
the final scene's climactic showdown. And for something .extra to
chew on besides your popcorn, consider its interwoven themes of
crime's cause and effect, man's corruptibility and the.symbiotic
relationship of good and evil.
'Christian Bale capably reprises his role of billionaire Bruce
ayne and his crime-fighting alter ego, Batman, from 2005's
Batman Begins. Maggie Gyllenhaal is his grown-up childhood
riend-and true love-Rachel Dawes, now Gotham City's assistant
district attorney. Aaron Eckhart plays Gotham's rising star, white-
knight District Attorney Harvey Dent, crusading to clean up the city
until a tragic event messes him up in more ways than one. Veteran
actors Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman are solid
in.sipporting roles.
But the movie's most riveting element is the Joker, played to
monstrous, mesmerizing perfection by the late Heath Ledger. Even
if this wasn't Ledger's final role before his untimely death last year,
his Joker-a cackling, remorselessly murderous, makeup-smeared
maniac-would still go down in cinema history as one of the most
creepily unhinged big-screen bad guys of all time. It's truly the stuff
of nightmares.
Dark Knight won't exactly lift your spirits. But if you're look-
ing for a Bat with some real meat on its bones, you certainly won't
go away hungry.. .

FSU professor to study best way to



help African-American caregivers


Researcher seeks caregivers to participate in study


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A
Florida State University
researcher has received a
$743,000 grant from the
National Institute of Mental
Health and the Johnny Byrd Sr.
Alzheimer's Center & Research
Institute to study the most effec-
tive methods to provide skills
training and support to African-
American caregivers of demen-
tia patients.
Love and compassion typi-
cally are the motivating emo-
tions for someone who takes on
the responsibility of caring for a
family member suffering from
dementia or old age, according
to Rob Glueckauf, a professor of
medical humanities and social
sciences in the FSU College of
Medicine.
But taking on such a respon-
sibility often comes with a
heavy cost. A caregiver often


experiences a mix of seemingly
incompatible feelings ranging
from satisfaction to isolation,
frustration and depression.
"Recent research estimates
that from 30 percent to 50 per-
cent of dementia caregivers
have clinically diagnosable lev-
els of depression," he said.
Mounting evidence shows
caregiving demands vary con-
siderably for African-American
caregivers, who are substantial-
ly more likely than other care-
givers to perform the most
demanding caregiving tasks,
including toileting, bathing and
dealing with incontinence or
diapers. African-American care-
givers also spend a dispropor-
tionately higher percentage of
their monthly income for the
care recipient's needs, bearing a
higher economic burden than
other caregivers.


Glueckauf's research will
compare the effects of tele-
phone-based versus in-person
skills building and support for
African-American dementia
caregivers on changes in emo-
tional distress and health status
over time. The study is a collab-
oration of FSU, Mayo Clinic in
Jacksonville, Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital and Florida
International University.
Providing support for care-
givers is more important than
ever in a state with an expanding
elderly population, dwindling
financial resources and more
elderly citizens in need of care
than can be sustained through
nursing homes and medical cen-
ters.
"The study holds great prom-
ise for better distribution of lim-
ited state resources for dementia
caregivers," Glueckauf said. "If


the study finds telephone inter-
vention as effective as face-to-
face intervention, and that's
what initial findings suggest,
skills training and support can
be offered to a wider range of
caregivers at substantially lower
costs."
For his African-American
Alzheimer's Caregiving
Training and Support (ACTS)
research, Glueckauf is seeking
African-American adult care-
givers who care for a loved one
with dementia at least six hours
a day and have a strong need to
reduce their stress. Those inter-
ested in participating should call
the ACTS project staff at (850)
645-2745 or (866) 778-2724
(toll-free), or e-mail
william.davis@med.fsu.edu
Caregivers will receive up to
$100 for their participation in
the study.


CFO Sink urges


self-employed to


buy, review health


insurance coverage


during August


open enrollment



TALLAHASSEE Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink this week
urged Florida's self-employed individuals to take advantage of the
August open enrollment period that allows single-group employers,
sole proprietors, independent contractors and others to obtain health
insurance or switch plans on a guaranteed-issue basis.
"This is a once-a-year opportunity for self-employed individuals
to make sure they have the coverage they need to protect themselves
and their families," said CFO Sink.
Aug. 1 through Aug. 31, insurers and Health Maintenance
Organizations (HMOs) that write small-group policies must offer
basic and standard coverage to the self-employed without regard to
health. status. Policies written or renewed in August have a plan
start date of Oct. 1.
Applicants must meet all of the conditions and criteria estab-
lished by law, and provide documentation verifying the operation of
an active business, including tax forms, license information and
business receipts, per Florida Statute 627.6699(3)(u);
A list of insurance companies offering coverage is posted on the
Department of Financial Services' website at
http://myfloridacfo.com/Consumers/smallgroup-market carri-
ers.htm, .To, learn more about; plan options, visit
http://www.floir.com/lhfr/is_LHFR_Small_EmpBenefiLPlan.ht
inm.
In addition to basic and standard policies, coverage options for
employers include health savings accounts (HSAs) or health reim-
bursement arrangements (HRAs). HSAs, which operate like
Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), allow people to save their
own money in a tax-free account for use on health-related expens-
es. If the money is not spent, it rolls over annually and accumulates
until the policyholder reaches age 65, at which time the money can
be used for any purpose.
For information on sample rates for small-group policies, visit
the Office of Insurance Regulation's website at www.floir.com,
click on the "Consumers" tab at the top, then scroll down to
"Compare Small Group Medical Rates." Be sure to click "One Life
Factor" to view appropriate sample rates for single-group employ-
ers.
A Health Insurance guide and Small Business Owners' Insurance
guide are available at www.MyFloridaCFO.com. For further assis-
tance, call the Department of Financial Services' toll-free consumer
helpline at 1-800-MyFLCFO (1-877-693-5236).
