A wreck, involving a semi tractor-trailer and a Cadillac, ended with
$3,000 in damage done to the car.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Jason Howard Reed,
23, of Mooreville, Mississippi, was entering Interstate 10 eastbound from-
the State Road 53 ramp, driving a 1995 Freightliner tractor-trailer. Ap-
proximately 100 feet east of the ramp, the driver changed from the right
to the left lane.

68, of Indian Head, Maryland, traveling to the left lane. The trailer struck
the right side of the Cadillac on the rear door.
Both vehicles came to final rest on the south side of the roadway,
facing east.
No one was injured in the crash.
Reed was charged with improper change of lane;
FHP Trooper Allen Kennard was the investigating officer.

SAM IS COMING

"Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that
will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known." Matthew
10:26
The year 2005 has dawned upon us. In the past few years, we
have seen the advent of a lot of things that may have given us
chills if we had even thought about them in the past.
I remember when I was a boy, growing up in Monticello.
There was a commercial that began airing on WCTV. The only
thing that the commercial had on it was a black screen and the
words "SAM IS COMING." There were no details about when the
mysterious "SAM" would appear or who or what "SAM" was. I
won't lie. The commercials scared me a little. You have to re-
member that this was during the time that Jim Jones had his fol-
lowers commit suicide in Guyana. Ted Bundy had murdered the
Chi Omega sorority sisters right down the road in Tallahassee. I
wanted to know who or .what "SAM" was.
After a while, the commercials began having more informa-
tion on them. They gave the date when "SAM" would arrive. I
held my breath and waited. Was "SAM" going to be some fanati-
cal cult leader with a huge following and deep pocketbooks, or
was "SAM" going to be the anti-Christ that I feared so much after
seeing the end times movie, Thief In The Night, in my church. I
was not going to join a cult and I was not going to have "666" tat-
tooed on my wrist or forehead.
Finally, the day arrived when they put the words "SAM IS
, HERE" on the television. The black screen faded and the picture
of "SAM" appeared on the TV. I looked and saw WHAT I SAW
WAS A STUPID ATM MACHINE!
It was the first ATM I had ever seen. I imagine it was the first
that many people in the area had seen. All brought to us by that
producer of horror, Barnett Bank! Thanks a lot, Barnett, for giving
me many restless nights worrying about who SAM was!
Thinking back on SAM, I also think about all the other great
technological innovations that we have seen since then. The Inter-
net has become more than a tool the military uses. Not only do we
have ATM machines, we now have online banking, as well as
check cards that let us just run our card through a machine. We
don't even need cash anymore. There are cash registers at restau-
rants with pictures of the food on them. A cashier doesn't even
have to know how to read anymore. Some places, the machine
gives you your change back and the cashier doesn't even have to
worry about knowing how to count.
If we ,let our minds dwell on the future, we can become
wrapped up in fear. Fear isn't a blanket that keeps us warm. It can
freeze us to death. When we see images of thousands of people dy-
ing inma tsunami, awewant to.clutch.and; grab. our hearts. We don't
need to faint beatae b.ithMtrhgeaGod' has,-lwayywatdhed-af-'
ter us and He always'will.: '",
If you don't know God and the peace He brings through His
Son Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit, I urge you to ask Jesus to
come into your heart right now.
Happy New Year!

It Takes Resolve To

Maintain That Resolution
So we're seven days into 2005. How long did you keep your
New Year's Resolution? Or Resolutions, if you felt really pow-
erful. Of course, that feeling wanes with the dawn of New
Year's Day, and the resolutions often lose their appeal.
Yes, you must have resolve in order to keep those resolu-
tions. Actually, you need resolve just to make them in the first
place. Resolve to make only one or two, resolve to make them
specific rather than general, and resolve to make only those
within your scope to keep. Instead of a resolution to write more
letters, try "I will write a note to my sister the last Friday of
every month." Rather than promoting world peace, resolve to
speak kindly every day to the person who gets your goat the
most. Resolutions you can keep that's the target.
Over the past two weeks, I have heard several radio and
television personalities refer to resolutions that make them bet-
ter people. Being a better person is not the purpose of the New
i Year's Resolution; making your world a better place is the idea.
Maybe that mistaken notion is the reason for the failure of so
many promises; we just don't feel like we need improvement.
(That is another mistaken notion, but we're not going to address
it here.)
The resolution should have at its heart the drive to make
someone else feel better. Yes, my sister will feel delight when
she receives a letter from me. In return, I will feel happiness
when I find a letter from her in my mailbox. So the circle goes
on, albeit a circle I started. Keeping her joy in mind helps me
keep that resolution.
Several years ago, I made a resolution to pass 'along any
compliment I heard. I figured I'd probably repeat a couple of
compliments a month. Wrong! I must hand out compliments
two or three times a week. I get a real thrill out of saying, "Hey,
Margaret, I heard someone say the nicest thing about you in the
beauty shop last week." Watching Margaret's face light up when
I tell her that someone ( I almost never tell them who) extolled
her commitment to the community that's worth a pile of pen-
nies. It's easy, it's inexpensive, and it provides perfect justifica-
tion for listening to gossip.
Maybe you resolved to pass along kind deeds. If someone
holds a door for you, you hold two doors for other people. When
another driver stops to allow you into traffic, you do the same
for a couple of others in a tight situation.
The point is to make a resolution within your grasp, one you
know you can keep. You can't stop a war, but you can turn a
tense,conversation intp.a pleasant exchange.: You can reduce the
squabbling in your home. Youcan wave and smile at that rude-
driver instead of making an obscene gesture. Those "little wars"
are within your province, and you can resolve to mitigate the cir-
cumstances that produce ill feelings.
You only need resolve. That is, a little steel in your spine, a
willingness to behave in ways that you have not behaved previ-
ously, a bit of courage to withstand the puzzled looks on the
faces of your friends and family. With a shrug of your shoulders,
go ahead and say, "I hope you have a good day" to that cashier
who spoke tersely to you.
You need resolve to make the time to keep that resolution.
You plan to read a story to your children every night? You must
pencil that time into your planner; otherwise, the "creepies" will
eat away at your evening and suddenly the clock will tell you the
kids should have been in bed an hour ago. Resolve to, plan.
Maybe some of us have kept our resolutions for at least a
week. If so, kudos to you. For those who have broken yours (or.
who didn't make any), go ahead and start afresh today. No one
will know but you.
Just get that resolve lined up, and keep at it. By year's end,
you'll feel better in a hundred ways.
Happy New Year, and may your resolve give life too your
resolutions.

Is this the year you make
good on your promise to boost
the amount of money you save?
There are plenty of ways to
achieve this goal, but the key is
to establish a savings plan and
stay committed to it. Here are
some simple saving strategies
recommended by the Florida In-
stitute of Certified Public Ac-
countants (FICPA).
ESTABLISH A GOAL.


The key to saving is to have a
goal. Whether it's a comfort-
able retirement, your child's
college education or a new car,.
when striving toward some-
thing specific, you're more like-
ly to reach your target. Be sure
to set a dollar amount and a
time frame and stick to it.
SPEND LESS. Systemati-
cally reducing your spending
will increase the amount you

have available to save. If you
don't know where your money
goes, tracking spending can
help. Then look for ways to cut
back and free up extra money
for savings.
PAY YOURSELF FIRST.
People have a tendency to pay
all their bills first and save
whatever is left over. The trou-
ble is there is seldom anything
remaining. Next month, before
you pay the electric bill, "pay" a
pre-determined amount to your
savings account. '
MAKE IT AUTOMATIC.
A good way to put saving first is
to arrange for your employer to
automatically deduct a certain
sum from your paycheck and
deposit, it directly to a savings
or investment account. Another
options is to establish an ac-
count with a mutual fund and
arrange for an automatic trans-

KEEP MAKING PAY-
MENTS. When you finish pay-
ing off a large loan or a major
expense, such as a car or your
child's college tuition bill, keep
making the payments only
now direct them to your savings
or investment account.
BANK YOUR REFUND.
If you're expecting a refund
back from the IRS, avoid the
temptation to spend it by having
it deposited directly to your sav-
ings account. Better yet adjust
your W-4 statement so you
don't get a big tax refund. Save
the "raise" in your paycheck via
an automatic saving plan.
BANK "EXTRA" PAY-
CHECKS. Depending on
whether you get paid weekly or
bi-weekly, you probably set up
your budget based on getting
two or four paychecks a month.

have a computer, so this stops me I guess, as I usually only stay
in contact via email. However, I could at least type my letters
and then mail them.
We didn't see as many lights this year decorating yards and
homes. Why, I am not sure. I always loved to see Christmas light
displays. When I was a child we would drive all the way to
South Miami to the huge Holsum Bakery to see their outside dis-
play. We were never disappointed. There would be trains, vil-
lages, little people, snow scenes, trees and all moving around on
a large platform. I can almost see some scenes now if I close my
eyes.
So much sadness already happening this year, how my heart
goes out to all the people affected by the tsunami disaster last
week. It is so hard to understand such a horrible disaster taking
place. Nothing will ever be the same for all those people and
countries again.
To date, there has been a small glitch with the house mov-
ing. I haven't started packing yet until I am sure all is worked
out. We should know for sure today. Then I will start packing.
Thank goodness I did find my notebook that has my list from the
last move. This will help with the boxes I still have not un-"
packed.
Not much happening here this week, so I am going to close.
I continue to wish all of you a wonderful New Year and many
blessings in your families. In the meantime think good thoughts
and keep smiling.................Sfea

Smart About Saving In 2005


FWday, January 7, 2005


Administrator

Cont'd from Page 1A

sioner Ricky Henderson.
Henderson said that he had done some research and learned
that in some counties approximately the same size and population
as Madison, the Clerk of the Court handles the administrative du-
ties.
Commissioners Ronnie Moore and Roy Ellis said that if the
county does not hire a county administrator, they will be taking a
step backwards into the past.
Greenville resident Charlie Pryor led off the public's input on
the matter and asked what the salary would be for the administra-
tor, how much,staff will be needed and the cost to run the office. He
pointed out that the county is maxed out at 10 mills and the local
option sales tax is encumbered. He also mentioned that he was con-
cerned about the administrator's ability to hire and fire at will.
Edward Meggs, chairman of the Madison County Develop-
ment Council, urged commissioners not to take a step back into the
past by rescinding their vote.
"You're at a crucial point in county management," Meggs said.
"A good manager will save you money. It's been proven in industry
and in government."
Meggs and Tom Moffses, the Madison City Manager, who was
speaking as a Madison County taxpayer, urged the commission to
hire somebody and give them the authority to act.
"Paula (Arnold, the former county manager) and Cohen Bond
(former county coordinator) didn't have any authority," Moffses
said. "You can save yourself a lot of money by hiring an adminis-
trator."I
Diann Douglas, current home extension agent, and Deloris
Jones, former home extension agent, both urged the commission to
hire an administrator.
Henderson asked Emergency Management Director Jim Stan-
ley and Vicki Brown, Emergency Management Special Projects
Manager, if they would assist if a county administrator was not
hired. They both indicated that they would.
Brown filled in as administrative assistant to the county com-
mission before Paula Arnold was hired for the position. She noted
that originally Arnold had been hired as an administrative assistant
before going through several job title changes.
,, Moore had pointed out.thattherehad been county manager's
reportindicating all the work that PaRla Artnod had done in.that po-
sition. He asked Henderson and King if tlt'y had read the county
manager's report.
Henderson said that he had. King admitted that he hadn't.
Brown noted that Arnold had written that report herself.
When the vote was taken, Chairman Alfred Martin voted along
with King.and.Henderson to rescind the earlier vote.
At the end of the meeting, Ellis was maintaining that the issue
should be revisited at each county commission meeting.


New Physical Therapy

Clinic Director
Jennifer "Jenny" Sheffield
Maphis, M.P.T., has recently been
appointed Clinic Director of
Tallahassee Orthopedic & Sports
Physical Therapy located on the cor-
ner of Dade and Range Streets in
Madison. Jenny replaces Monica
Norfleet, P.T., who moved with her
husband, Nat, and their family to
l Tuscon, Arizona in September.
.... l JA Jenny was born and raised in
Tallahassee where she attended Florida High School. Being
very interested in all sports, she participated in volleyball,
softball and cheerleading. After suffering an injury that pre-
vented her from playing active sports, she volunteered to
work with the school's sports teams as an assistant to Jim
Watson, the Athletic Trainer for Florida High and co-owner
of TOSPT. Under Jim's tutelage and working alongside the
team physicians, she acquired a vast knowledge of sports
injuries and prevention. Athletic training became a huge
part of her high school life and she became a vital part of the
Florida High sports program.
Jenny went on to FSU on a football athletic training
scholarship and majored in Biological Sciences with a strong
emphasis on pre-med. Along the way, Jenny realized that she
could combine her passion for athletics with her infatuation
for medicine. Instead of becoming a Certified Athletic
Trainer, she recognized that she could be involved with ath-
letes while also working with other populations in the med-.
ical field. Jenny then went on to the University of Florida to
acquire her Master's degree in Physical Therapy.
Recently married to Scott Maphis, a manager with
Publix in Tallahassee, they enjoy family, friends and their
two dogs. (Scott's hobby is training retrievers.) Jenny is
vitally interested in helping people from the very young to
the very mature overcome problems that affect their abilities
to move and function as well as they can in their daily lives
and in teaching the prevention of injury and loss of move-
ment.
Please feel free to call Jenny if you desire information on
Physical Therapy.

Recently, the Iota Alpha Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority
in Madison, attended its Southeastern Regional Conference in
Savannah, Ga., November 19-21, 2004.
Zetas were lauded for their involvement with the "Walk
America" March of Dimes Campaign and Z-Hope for all the
positive things that are being done to help prepare our children
for a brighter future as well as furthering our involvement in
helping natives of Africa, Haiti and other developing countries.
This was especially true when Zetas, through Z-Hope, collected
and sent canned goods, clothing and funds to help victims of the
hurricane season. .
Locally, we also try to make the lives of our Senior Citizens
happier by providing a Christmas Luncheon each year during
the holidays just to highlight

Happenings

By Nell Dobbs
May we be people of IN-
TEGRITY upright of charac-
ter and honest. Strange in-
deed, or perhaps not, that
when a word comes up there
are several mentioning of it.
Our Adult Sunday School les-
son was "Practice Integrity",
even though Scripture from
Titus did not specifically use
it. On front page of Sunday's
"Democrat": Bob Graham a
man of integrity and another
reference in same paper of
"Academic Integrity". There
are many references in the
Bible. Job 2:3 And the Lord
said unto Satan, "Hast thou
considered my servant Job,
that there is none like him in
the earth, a perfect and upright
man, one that feareth God, and
escheweth evil? And still he
oldest fast his integrity."
More in Job, some in Psalms,
some in Proverbs. Our Sara
Dene works with Integrity
Music in Mobile. Her Bobby
and Natalie (Nita's daughter)
who said she needed the bless-
ing and she attended Watch
Night Service at Midway
Church of God to hear cousins
Trent and Suzanne Lasseter of
The McCormick Group and
she even played some.
Beautiful flowers were
placed in church Sunday by
Boogie and Walteria Schnitker
in honor of their sons and their
families; Clay and Kay and
their Jennie and Evan, and
Mark and Cil and their Ben
and Matthew. We pray espe-
cially for all of them.
Debbie Bass sang "El
Shaddai" beautifully. It
brought to mind when the Hal-
steads were with us and Jenny
sang it. Preacher said Bill
wanted ten people to claim the
remaining poinsettias so he
wouldn't have to keep water-
ing then.r.
Chancel Choir sang, "We
All Bow Down." Preacher's
message was indeed challeng-
ing and stirring as he talked of
"The Challenge and the
Change" from Malachi 3. The


Lord does not change. His
Word is good and He does as
He says. He demands that we
be serious about following
Him. In all things we are to
give thanks thanks for His
grace, His gentleness, His gra-
ciousness, His goodness, His
knowing us and our names,
His constancy, His forever be-
ing the same, His charge to us
to so live that the next genera-
tion will know Him.
Sadness has come to the
McHargues and we pray com-
fort for each of them, all of
them and for all others who've
lost loved ones.
We are. thankful for all the
blessings of the holidays and
for families being together.
Ours all together the week af-
ter such a blessing. Then on
the 1st for Agners and Dixons
to gather for fellowship, food,
fun at Jimmy and Hilda
Dixon's beautiful, comfort-
able home sixty of us. We
.thank them.
We give God thanks that
He thinks about us. We used
to sing, "Thou Thinkest, Lord,
Of. Me, Of Me!" To be
thought of makes us feel good.
As I went to the Recycling
Madison Towing, Mr. Crosby
told me he'd been worried


John 3:1-7

1 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a
ruler of the Jews.
2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, "Rab-
bi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one
can do these signs that You do unless God is with him."
3 Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say
to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of
God."
4 Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when
he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb
and be born?"
5 Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say. to you. unless
one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the king-
dom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which
is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Do not marvel that I said to you, "You must be bbrn
again."

Enjoyed a brief visit with

of office on the Senate floor ad-
ministered by Vice President Dick
Cheney.
Martinez, the first Cuban-
American to serve as a United
SStates Senator, said:
"Forty-two years ago, I came
to America fromcommunist Cuba
Sso I might have a better way of
life, a freer way of life a more
democratic way of life. I wanted
to live the American Dream where
if you worked hard and put your mind to the task, anything was
possible. To stand here today and take the oath of office to be-
come Florida's next United States Senator is truly the culmina-
tion of my American Dream.
"My life experiences have had a strong effect on my value
system I strongly believe in a free and open government, free
markets and freedom of individuals to pursue their dreams. I be-
lieve in an ownership society where Americans make decisions
about their individual lives not the U.S. government. I believe
in less taxes. I believe a strong and ready U.S. military is the
best defense to an uncertain world. I look forward to fighting for
these principles in the United States Senate.
"I am honored to serve and represent the people of Florida.
I intend to follow the great example set by retiring Senator Bob
Graham and former Senator Connie Mack who worked to build
relationships across party lines in order to do what's best for the
state of Florida. From keeping our tourism economy strong, to
preserving the Everglades, and continuing our hurricane recov-
ery, many important concerns facing the Sunshine State aren't
red or blue, Republican or Democrat. I intend to represent all
Floridians and be a clear voice on issues crucial to our state."
Martinez will serve on four committees'in the U.S. Senate:
Foreign Relations, Banking, Energy and Aging. The committee
assignments give Martinez the ability to influence a broad range
of policies important to Florida.

VEWS AROUND THE WORLD


Following the formal swearing-in, Martinez participated in
a traditional re-enactment of the ceremony in the Old Senate
Chamber flanked by his wife, Kitty, their sons John and Andrew,
and their daughter and son-in-law, Lauren and Tim Shea, and
their two children. Although Senate rules prohibit extended
family members from attending the re-enactment, watching
from the sidelines was a group of Martinez's closest family and
friends: Gladys Martinez, Martinez's mother; Ralph Martinez,
Martinez's brother, and his family; and Pepe Racines, Mar-
tinez's childhood friend from Sagua la Grande, Cuba.
Martinez ended the afternoon at a celebratory reception for
friends, family, supporters and volunteers. More than 700 peo-
ple were expected to attend the reception celebrating the swear-
ing-in of Senator Martinez, including chartered buses of Cuban-
Americans from Miami and New Jersey who traveled to Wash-
ington to witness the swearing-in of the first Cuban-American
Senator in history.
Martinez will commute to D.C. when the Senate is in ses-
sion and will reside in Orlando, Florida with his wife, Kitty, and
their 11-year-old son, Andrew.

Kansas, Missouri Brace
For More Bitter Storms
Kansas and Missouri residents were digging out from a
winter storm that crippled parts of the Plains and West with
thick snowfall and rain, cutting off electricity to thousands and
keeping law enforcement busy working multiple accidents on
slick roads.
Mike Hudson, a meteorologist with the National Weather
Service said a second line of thunderstorms was expected to
move through the Plains early Wednesday morning, adding
fresh misery for people dealing with downed trees and for pow-
er crews trying to repair broken lines.
Hudson said that after dumping up to an inch of ice on the
Kansas City area, the storm system was expected to switch
gears Wednesday afternoon and drop about an inch of snow and
sleet.
"We're expecting things to get worse before they get bet-
ter," said Gina Penzig, a spokeswoman for Westar Energy,
which said Tuesday night that it could be up to a week before
the Kansas utility can restore service to 80,000 customers left in
the dark by the storm.

Muslim Cleric Suspect Misses Hearing
Due to Long Toe Nails
Radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri failed to appear
before a British court Tuesday, complaining his toe nails were
too long and he could not walk.
Abu Hamza, who is also wanted by the United States over
11 alleged offenses, was charged by British police last year on
16 counts including one terror-related offense.
He had been due to make an appearance via video-link from
the high-security Belmarsh jail in London where he is being
held.
"Hamza has physical difficulties. He is unable to walk. He
has been perambulating barefoot around the prison," said de-
fenselawyer Peter Hypes. .,. .
Prosecutor Adina Ekiel added: "He is complaining that his
toe nails are too long."
Britain accuses Hamza -
who lost an eye and both hands
in Afghanistan fighting Soviet
forces- of 10 charges of using
public meetings to incite his
followers to kill non-Muslims.
Four of the charges say he
urged the.killing of Jews.
He is also charged with using threatening, abusive or in-
sulting behavior with intent to stir up racial hatred, one offense
of possessing threatening, abusive or insulting sound record-
ings, and one charge of possessing a "terrorist" document.
Judge Peter Beaumont adjourned Tuesday's hearing for two
weeks and set the trial date for July 4.
Chinese Couples Chicken Out
Of Rooster Year Weddings
Couples across China are rushing to get married in the next
few days before the Year of the Rooster, chickening out of what
they believe to be a jinxed time to tie wed.
This year the lunar cycle begins relatively late, on Feb. 9,
which means it will not contain "lichun," the auspicious day that
marks the start of spring, earning it the dubious distinction of
being a "widow year," or unlucky for wedlock.


Friday, January 7, 2005


Chinese media have reported
that marriage registrations are
soaring around the country as
people scramble to get hitched
in the last days of the Year of
the Monkey.
"Business is normally low
for us this time of year, but this
year, in keeping with tradition-,*
al Chinese beliefs, many peo--
ple want to get married before.
the spring festival and we have-
lots of customers," said Ms.:
Wang, manager of Beijing's'-
Luowei wedding photo studio.
The phenomenon normally-'
occurs on average about every.,
nine years. The last "widow" year came in 2002 and sparked a
similar marriage rush.
"Though the 'widow year' is nonsense, the fact that people
try to avoid it reflects their strong desire for a happy marriage,"
Zhang Youde, a sociologist at Shanghai University, was quoted
as saying by Xinhua news agency.
Respect of tradition also appears to be an important moti-'
.vation, as many Chinese are starting to revive centuries-old cus-'
toms branded "feudalistic" or backwards and all but abandoned":
during the era of Mao Zedong. 1
Standing outside the Luowei studio in a tuxedo and puffing'
on a cigarette, Beijing resident Gui Lu said he and his wife de-
liberately decided to marry early this month.
"I don't believe in that stuff too much, but I can't say I don't be-'
lieve at all," Gui said. "It's Chinese tradition. It's something we i
should uphold."

Animal Rights Group
Asks Jimmy Carter To Stop Fishing'
A prominent U.S.-based animal rights group urged former .-
President Jimmy Carter on Monday to give up fishing on the,,
grounds that the activity was inconsistent the Nobel peace lau-
reate's humanitarian efforts.
People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals made its
appeal in a letter faxed to
Carter's non-profit Carter
Center on Monday. The group ,.N-
said the letter was prompted
by Carter's recent appearance
on The Tonight Show With
Jay Leno.
Carter, who served as
president 'from 1977 to 1981
and won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002, told Leno of the pain he' '
suffered when he accidentally hooked himself through the face' .
on a fishing trip.
"We're asking President Carter to think this through and to
grant fish peace by leaving them in the water where they be-'
, long,, PETAPresident Ingrid lNewkirk said in a press release.
A Carter Center spokesman said the center does not com- f
ment on Carter's private correspondence.

President Brannen
Retired From
Bank of Greenville
The Board of Directors of
the Bank of Greenville an-
nounced the retirement of
President C.H. Brannen. Mr.

continued service to the bank.
He was to continue as an active
member of the Board of Direc-

The Board selected B.B.
Karr of Tallahassee to succeed

Navy Petty Officer 3rd
Class, Todd A. Roberts, son of
Kenneth E. Roberts of Pinetta,
was serving aboard the aircraft
carrier USS Saratoga, which
had returned from deployment

in the Mediterranean Sea.
This was the first deploy-

Davis Tells
Of Russian Tour
J.A. Davis, M.D. enter-
tained the Lions and the Rotary
Clubs by showing extensive
color slides of his tour of the
U.S.S.R.
Showing many pictures of
many magnificent buildings
Davis, in response to a ques-
tion from his audience, said
that most of the really great
buildings were built long be-
fore the Leninists came to
power. One other major differ-
ence he noted was in the kinds
of housing available for re-,
spective peoples. In Russia,
nearly everyone lived in apart-
ment buildings. There were
practically no single family
homes and if one of the Soviet
citizens were to want such a
residence, there was no way he
could acquire one.
One of Davis' other major
impressions received from his
travels was his expressed
great pleasure in having
been born a citizen of
this country rather than
in the U.S.S.R.
