Letters to the Editor are typed word for word, comma for comma, as sent to this newspaper.
Ray Charles Sculpture
This letter is in reference to the February 23rd article re-
garding the Town of Greenville considering different artists for
the Ray Charles sculpture. My grandmother, Patricia Mugge
Reams knew Ray Charles (or R.C. Robinson) through her moth-
er-in-law and father-in-law, the late Ruth "Mapop" Reams and
A.D. Reams, Sr. She has told me several stories some from her
own personal knowledge and others she heard directly from
The article stated that Ray Charles took piano lessons from
my great grandmother Mapop Reams. This is not factual since
Mapop didn't play the piano. It has also been reported that my
great grandfather, A.D. Reams, Sr. and another man paid for Ray
Charles to go to the School for the Blind in St. Augustine. This
is also incorrect. He actually received a government grant,
which paid his tuition.
Some of the confusion may result from the fact that A.D.
Reams and Dr. McLeod wrote letters to help facilitate R.C. get-
Monitired 24 Hoiurs A Day
You Own The System
ting into the school. R.C.'s mother visited the Reams's asking
for their assistance and they did help in that regard. When R.C.
came home for summer vacations he would go up to the Reams
home and show them what he'd learned on the piano. Therefore
he did play their piano several times. In fact, in 1944 while
Grandmother Pat was carrying my father, Joe, R.C. played that
same piano for her. She recalls one song in particular named "I
Just Can't See for Lookin'". Because of the song's title she
thought he'd written it although she subsequently found out he
didn't. My grandfather, Joe Reams, Sr., while delivering sale
papers for his father A.D.'s store, used to pick R.C. up to ride
along. There are others here in Greenville that have many more
memories of R.C. Robinson.
The facts that I've presented are verified by quotes from
Ray Charles in his authorized biography "Ray Charles, Man and
Music" by Michael Lydon.

New Physical Therapy
,: 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
S .Madison. Jenny replaces Monica
Norfleet, P.T., who moved with her
husband, Nat, and their family, to
I Ak Tuscon, Arizona in September.
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-

Around The Town
"Good morning to you, good morning to you." Can you be-
lieve this weather? Winter, spring and summer all rolled into one.
And if you don't like it this morning, wait a few hours and it will
change to please you.
Spring, though, seems to be springing forth. We saw evidence
at the (James) Bells' residence which is sporting new vinyl siding
including contrasting colored shutters. It looks really great. By the
way, when you see James ask him what the difference is between a
white Buick and a white Oldsmobile. It's quite a story and may
prove to be continued.
We saw more evidence at Horse Tales that very interesting lit-
tle business is ready for spring in sparkling new white siding. Even
the Town Hall has been painted inside and the old Lee School's
bathrooms and gym have been brightened with coats of paint. The
imminent arrival of Lee Day may have a small effect on this be-
ginning of "sprucing up the town."
We heard through the grapevine the Madison Enterprise
Recorder, that is (isn't it odd that this column gets news from the
paper for which it is being written?) that interesting things have
been happening at our post office and add our congratulations to
Mary Santerfeit, who is now officially the Lee Postmaster after
spending the past year here as the Officer in Charge. Mary is a de-
lightful "people person" who should prove to be an asset in this po-
We also add out congratulations to Eddie Hale, our wonderful
mail carrier, who was honored for 30 years of service in his postal
career here. Anyone who knows Eddie will tell you that there is no
nicer person anywhere and we agree.
Last but not least, we congratulate Doug McNicol on his re-
tirement after 19 years with our postal service. When we retired and.
moved back to Lee from Jacksonville, we found Doug who is a
very smart guy, to be very helpful if we had a questions about any-
thing, especially after we joined him on the Lee Town Council.:
Happy retirement, Doug!
Together these three "salt of the earth" people have served the
postal service for a cumulative 74 years. We are fortunate to have
them in Lee.
Another thing for which we appreciated there E.R. was the
Campers on Mission store. We had put'a few lines .about them in
our column before but wanted someone to cover this important sto-
i% % ith pictures. Nost. thanks to Ernestine Kinse and to Jacob's
pictures, these wonderful people ha'e been shown the appreciation
and respect which they deserve.
Sunday of the,20th \ as one of the nicest days we've enjoyed
for a while. On that beautiful morning; we went to church Mace-
donia,.where the choir really rose to the occasion with the last song
"The Halleluiah Chorus"". Then Rev. Turner gave. a heart rending
sermon ohn the agony of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane.
Later that evening, we enjoyed a wonderful 3-hour visit from
Hubert and Mbntez Fox of Jasper. Hubert is Bob Bembry's (our

Lee Day. Evening church ended a perfect day.
Joyce Rutherford enjoyed a wonderful 4-day visit last week
with her brother, Jim Merritt of Winter Park, and Jim's son, Joe, of
Apopka, and while they were here, their sister and her husband, De-
lores and Jerry Neill of Lake City, came over. They all had a great
family time together, spending much of it at their family home -
their mother Mildred Merritt's place, which is Joyce's "second
We went to the Bill Nelson Town Hall Meeting at NFCC with
Simon and Ernestine Kinsey and we all thoroughly enjoyed Bill's
speech and the question and answer part which followed. His 30-
year background in our country's complicated no, convoluted -
system of politics (excuse us, government) really showed as he
covered the Iraq situation, the Social Security issue, the health and
education problems skillfully and without notes, even to years,
dates and amounts. He spoke of himself as a moderate Democrat
who believes in the two parties and the President working together
for the good of the country.
Ernestine had a birthday on Thursday many happy returns
which she thoroughly enjoyed with family. All of son Bobby's
family were there; son Abe from Wakulla; and son William and
Candy's son Justin from Tallahassee.. Only Candy was unable to
round out the family circle.
At this point, we need to ask for prayer for Ernestine's sister,
Juanita, who had been ill but is better, for the Joe and Beverly
Odom family, the Bill Harrelson family (his death came as a shock
to us); and for Cheryl's father, Joe.
Plans for Lee Day are meshing quite nicely we have a won-
derful group on the committee this year. They meet again Thursday
evening so we'll bring you up to date next time, but be sure to get
your entries in for the parade, alumni dinner, arts and crafts, blue
ribbon event, and special exhibits. For info, call 971-5867,
We leave you now with this (from Rev. Turner), "an optimist
is one who, in falling from a 13-story indoor. says as he passes the
third story So far, so good!"

S \e look forward to both seeing you and/or hearing from
for our lives or kingdom building. The Word tells us that only
what we do for Christ will last. As in all things. we need to make
certain that we are hearing God,with regard to ALL activities in
which we become involved. There are times when it may be a
good and w orth'w while cause or venture, but if it is not God-or-
dained and orchestrated by the Father "for your life" it has no
"eternal % alue". Our focus should be on things that impact eter-
nity, bring the lost into the Kingdom of God, and will ultimately
transform us into the image of our heavenly Father. When we do
things to be well-spoken of by man. we become (man-pleasers).
The Word tells us to "seek to please no man" and when We do,
that will be the only reward that we w ill receive. A passion for
God's presence leads us to spend time with Him... hearing only
We each need to daily stop and take spiritual inventory of
our lives. We need to ask ourselves am I hearing from God? Am
I moving in harmony with what God is requiring for my life? Is
God getting the glory out of EVERYTHING that I do and say?
Are my priorities in divine order with regard to God, family,
church, and community? Am I waiting for God's season-and tim-
ing? Am I walking honorably and blamelessly before God, and
in the calling that He has ordained for me? Is my will totally
aligned with the will of God? Jesus said "I only say whatthe Fa-
ther says and I do what m) Father does." The same should ap-
ply to us as His disciples. We should only (say and do) what the
Father tells us to. He tells us to acknowledge Him first in all
things and He will direct our paths. When we make decisions
without first seeking His guidance, and waiting to hear what He
says, we are ultimately setting ourselves up for failure. Because
He is God. and cannot change. He gives us the choice of making
independent decisions until we realize that without Holy Spirit
inspired revelation and guidance. we often times make decisions
and choices that alter the God-ordained course of our lives.
Those decisions and choices sometimes take most of our lives to
correct. Therefore, each of us at different times in our lives need
to slow down. do the inventory, assess our actions and activities,
and make certain that we've heard ti Word from the Father with
regard to what we should be doing. Spending time in His pres-
ence empowers us to have clarity and direction for our lives.
God does not want us to get so busy that we forget to nurture
and cultivate our relationship with Him. When the busy things
in life pull us away from Him and the time we spend with Him,
we can be certain that the activity.is not ordained nor orchestrat-
ed by Him. He wants so much to spend time with us. He looks
forward to spending time with us. tUnderstand that God is wise
and knows, ALL THINGS. He knows that speriding time with
Him gives us revelation, clarity, direction. and restoration.
Equipped with these, we can move assuredly into whatever are-
na that He takes us. When we take time from the busy things in
life and spend time in the presence of God. we can experience
spiritual restoration. This restoration will empower us-to effec-
tively be about the Father's business. He can then expand our
territory and we can experience an increase in divine appoint-
ments and experience abundance in e'ery facet of our lives.
However, we must take time for Him. before we can become
equipped to serve those that He places in our lives. And yes, be-
cause He was a servant.....we too are servants. Spending time in
His presence equips us to serve effectively.
I speak first to myself, and then to you. Take time for the One
who wants to spend time with you. More than anyone, He longs
to spend time with each of us. We are His most valued creation,
made in His image, and life breathed into us. Let us each com-
mit to spending time with Him, and thus becoming divinely
equipped for gathering souls for His kingdom. It is kingdom-
building time and, "the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are
few". Let's make certain that our business is aligned with His
In His presence is: CLARITY, DIRECTION, PROVISION,
AND VICTORY!! Increase your passion for HIS PRESENCE.

A Survivorship Story
A ',.ell-known speaker
started off his seminar by hold-
ing up a $20 bill. In the room of
200, he asked, "Who would
like this $20 bill?"
Hands started going up.
He said, "I am going to
give this $20 to one of you but
first, let me do this.
He proceeded to crumple
up the $20 dollar bill.
He then asked, "Who still
Still the hands were up in
Well, he replied, "What if I
And he dropped it on the
ground and started to grind it
into the floor with his shoe.
He picked it up, now
crumpled and dirty.
"Now, who still wants it?"
Still the hands went into
"My friends, we have all
learned a very valuable lesson.
No matter what I did to the
money, you still wanted it, be-
cause it did not decrease in val-
ue. It was still worth $20.
Many times in our lives, we are
dropped, crumpled, and ground

we make or the circumstances
that come our way.

worthless. But no matter what

WE ARE. Cancer cannot take
that from you.

Relaying The Mission
DID YOU KNOW? One-third of all cancers could be pre-
vented by healthy habits and regular physical activity. *
IMPACT: In 1984, the American Cancer Society issued its
first nutrition and physical activities guidelines. These guide-
lines emphasized a balanced diet and regular exercise to lower
TAKE ACTION: Living a healthli lifestyle in today's so-
ciety is difficult. Become an advocate in your community for
healthy menu options at local re iaurants, side-walk and bike
lanes for safe exercising, and [onuprehen'ik e school health ed-
ucation so kids can learn healthy life, style habits.
DID YOU KNOW? Mammograms are the most valuable
early detection method because they can identify breast cancer
at an early stage, usually before physical symptoms develop.
IMPACT: Because of the increased use of mammograms
and improved treatments more breast cancers are detected
early, and more women are surviving breast cancer.
TAKE ACTION: Spread the work about breast cancer
early detection and tell the xv omen in your life and in your
community about breast health.

provided Sunday by Sonny and
Frances Arnold in honor of
their children: John and Gina
and Chad and grandchildren,
Kirbi and Keri Ann. Special
blessings upon all of them an
their faithfulness to church

missed.) An apology for failing
to give thanks to Frances for the
great secretary she was while
Sandra was out recovering
from surgery and we give God
thanks for her healing and for
all their family.
Great service Sunday!
Preacher asked Dr. John G. Mc-
Call to give morning prayers
and what a prayer he prayed (as
always). It was very good to
have his wife and him, and sis-
ter Mary Love and husband
worship with us. How great to
hear Dan Campbell sing and
play guitar, "My Redeemer."
Glad I got to hear him this time.
Always appreciated Juanita on
the organ (Lex and Deanie
helping their Nicole move to
Charlotte.) For offertory,
Chamber Orchestra played,
"Rock of Ages." Chancel Choir
san "The Majesty and Glory of
Your Name." Preacher's mes-
sage was from James 3 about
horses and bits and ships and
helms and tongues which bless
and curse and ought not so to
be. God's people are to be
peaceable, gentle, easy to be.
entreated, full of mercy and
Words of praise and thanks
were given for God's gift of
rain and more rain!! In 88 we
concluded our study of Hosea -
a great study. We ask God to
receive us graciously, give us
dew, help us when we stumble.-
We think of the importance of
olive trees and all the benefits.
Then we thing of the song,
"Neath the old olive tree went
the Savior alone."
Thinking about God's
mysterious ways Debbie told
us that last Sunday as she left
class for Choir practice,
Dorothy Knitter called her. She
had two pictures of Steve
twelve years as he gave T-shirts
to two people for twenty five
years of service at Dixie Pack-
ers. They'd not even seen the
pictures but Dorothy found
them in a book she had checked
out at the library. Steve had re-
cently visited Don and Carol
Lundell (as their deacon) and
reported a good visit. We give
God tanks for them and need to
continue praying for them and
also Nancy. I saw her at her car
last Sunday morning and
turned around to remind her to
come to church, She'd been
real sick with Mono and still
isn't feeling well.
We also need to pray
earnestly for other ill ones:
Miss Jessie Adamson (who
was able to go to Historical
meeting at Mildred Bruner's);
Everette Browning (not well at
all) in Madison Hospital and
Ethel Clark also there and not
well; Roger McCollum in
church Sunday after surgery
and mending (Another great
testimony!); Jamie Brock;
Griffin Bishop; Juanita Bur-
nett; Buddy Bryant; Cathryn
Carver; Gary Gazlay; Louis
Downing; Kathleen Hartsfield;

"We'll be conducting research on vegetables
that are organically grown and pesticide-free.
'One of our first tasks is to establish a taste test
,panel, because taste is a big question mark
when it comes to hydroponics. Perhaps we can
find some way to increase flavor."

The Eyes Have It
The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 13A
; Gary Klein
Cold weather might call for
change in fish-catching strate-
les, but even as we anxiously
wait the return of short sleeves
-d later sunsets throughout'
,ost of the country, there's one
qrategy for safe and successful
fishing that never changes.
Skiers, shooters neither
strangers to winter's bite make
ta priority to protect their eyes.
Smart anglers should follow
Even in February, the sun
"an be bright enough to leave
you seeing spots and even do
significantt damage to your eyes.
Especially when driving to-
wards the sun right before dusk
or shortly after sunrise.
Just think what a summer's
,day on the lake, with the sun's
rays reflecting off the water, can
do to your eyes.
I learned early in my career
the importance of protecting my
eyes. As a wearer of prescription
glasses, I didn't wear any kind
of UV protection. Then, while
fishing a Pro-Am many years
ago, an optometrist told me my
regular lenses did nothing to
protect my eyes from the harm-
ful effects of the sun. He told me
how exposure to high levels of
UV radiation can damage eyes
and how the effects of the dam-
age can range from an annoying
scratchy feeling that eventually
goes away to blindness.
The annoying scratchy feel-
ing is the result of a condition
called UV keratitis, caused by
damage to the first layer of cells
that coat the front of the eye. It
can take about six hours after
the damage occurs before some-
body starts experiencing symp-
toms, which can range from
pain, tearing, spasms in the eye-
lids, and/or blurred vision.
The vision experts at Live
Eyewear, which make Cocoons,
sunglasses designed to be worn
by people who wear prescription
glasses, say that wearing sun-
glasses with UV-filtering can
slow the effects of macular de-
generation caused by the sun's
UV rays and even help stave off
early cases of cataracts.
But you have to wear eye
protection. Even on cloudy
days. Though the clouds might
help absorb some of the sun's
rays and make the sun feel less
intense, it's absorbing mostly in-
frared radiation -, not UV. Even
on these days, it's easy to get a
sunburn on your skin if you
don't use sunscreen and do seri-
ous damage to your eyes with-
out proper UV protection.
So watch out for your eyes.
You've only got two.

Madrid Train Bombers
Had New York Station Drawings
The bombers who blew up crowded commuter trains in
Idrid last year had plans of New York's Grand Central Terminal,
t nothing in them suggested an immediate attack threat, U.S. au-
Jrities said Wednesday.
The plans, which included hand-made drawings and other
highly specialized technical information," were found on a com-
iter disk seized from the home of one of the suspects, the Spanish
iwspaper El Mundo reported. It cited sources close to the Madrid
I However, New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly
played down the significance of the material, calling it "basic draw-
gs" and "not an operational plan."
"It is not something that would indicate an immediate threat to
facility," Kelly said at a news conference in New York.
"Nothing in this newer material has caused us to make changes
Ai our security plans or procedures," he said.
The drawings show the
large terminal area and an adja-
cent room, Kelly said.
In Washington, the U.S.
Department of Homeland Secu-
rity said it had received infor-
mation from Spanish authorities
involved in the bombing probe
but also played down its value.
"However out of an abun-
dance of caution, federal offi-
cials did pass on the information
to local officials in New York,"
The disk was confiscated
within two weeks.of the attacks
on March 11, 2004, that killed
191 people in Madrid, but Span-
ish investigators did not warn the FBI (news web sites) and the
.CIA (news web sites) until December when the full scope of the
technical information became clear,El Mundo said.
The disk was found in the home of a man arrested on suspicion
of playing a role in the attacks that rocked Spain three days before
a general election, El Mundo said.
The suspect, who El Mundo said had a relationship with other
men formally accused in the probe, was released from jail but re-
mains under. suspicion..
Ten bombs hidden in sports bags exploded on board four
packed commuter trains last March 11. The attack was claimed by
men saying they acted in the name of al Qaeda in Europe in re-
sponse to Spain sending troops to Iraq (news web sites) and-
Afghanistan (news web sites).
The same group is suspected of planting a bomb on a high-
speed rail line south of Madrid a few days after the deadly attacks,
and seven prime suspects later blew themselves up in a suburban
Madrid apartment when surrounded by police.
Some 70 people have been arrested in the criminal investiga-
tion, about half of whom remain in jail or under court supervision.
Supreme Court Abolishes
Juvenile Death Penalty
The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that the Constitution forbids the
execution of killers who were under 18 when they committed their
crimes, ending a practice used in 19 states.
The 5-4 decision throws out the death sentences of 72 juvenile mur-
derers and bars states from seeking to execute minors for future crimes.
The ruling had an immediate effect on the nation's most noto-
rious teen killer, sniper Lee Boyd Malvo.
I Prosecutors in Virginia's Prince William County had waited
for the ruling to decide on bringing Malvo to trial for one of the 10
killings in an October 2002 killing spree by Malvo and accomplice
John Allen Muhammad.
Prosecutor Paul Ebert said after the ruling that he won't prose-
cute Malvo, because Malvo has already been sentenced to life in
prison without parole for two of the killings. Ebert said another tri-
al would now be an unnecessary expense since the death penatly
was not an option. Malvo was 17 at the time of the killings.
The executions, the court said,, violate the Eighth Amendment
ban on cruel and unusual punishment.
The ruling continues the court's practice of narrowing the
scope of the death penalty, which justices reinstated in 1976. The
court in 1988 outlawed executions for those 15 and younger when
they committed their crimes. Three years ago justices banned exe-
cutions of the mentally retarded.
Tuesday's ruling prevents states from making 16- and 17-year-
olds eligible for execution.
"The age of 18 is the point where society draws the line for
many purposes between childhood and adulthood. It is, we con-
clude, the age at which the line for death eligibility ought to rest,"
Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote.
Juvenile offenders have been put to death in recent years in
only a few other countries, including Iran, Pakistan, China and Sau-
di Arabia. Kennedy cited international opposition to the practice.
Kennedy noted most states don't allow the execution of juve-
nile killers 'and those that do use the penalty infrequently. The
trend, he said, is to abolish the practice because "our society views
juveniles ... as categorically less culpable than the average crimi-
Justices were called on to draw an age line in death cases after
Missouri's highest court overturned the death sentence given to a
17-year-old Christopher Simmons, who kidnapped a neighbor in
Missouri, hog-tied her and threw her off a bridge. Prosecutors say
he planned the burglary and killing of Shirley Crook in 1993 and
bragged that he could get away with .it because of his age.
The four most liberal justices had already gone on record in
2002, calling it "shameful" to execute juvenile killers. Those four,
joined by Kennedy, also agreed with Tuesday's decision: Justices
John Paul Stevens, David H. Souter, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and
Before Tuesday's ruling, 19 states allowed executions for peo-
ple under age 18: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida,
Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, New
Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Car-
olina, Utah, Texas and Virginia.
The federal government already bars the execution of juveniles
iday, March 4, 2005
before trial, without a judge present would have been the first time
Bryant had spoken under oath about what happened.
He said the deposition might also have been postponed for
simpler, reason, such as an illness.
U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch previously refused to bar
the woman's lawyers from asking Bryant about his sexual history,
He said he would handle any objections to the questions'afterward.
Denver attorney Dan Recht said that ruling may help put pressure
on Bryant to settle.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for mental injuries, hu-
miliation and public scorn the woman said she has suffered, since
her June 2003 encounter with Bryant at the Vail-area resort where

for federal capital crimes.
In a dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia disputed that there is a trend
and chastised his colleagues for taking power from the states.
The Supreme Court has permitted states to impose capital pun-,
ishment since 1976 and more than 3,400 inmates await execution
in the 38 states that allow death sentences. Twenty-two of the peo-,
ple put to death since then were juveniles when they committed
their crimes. Texas executed the most, 13, and also has the most ori
death row now 29.
Justice Sandra Day O'Connor filed a separate dissent, arguing
that a blanket rule against juvenile executions was misguided,
Case-by-case determinations of a young offenders' maturity is the
better approach, she wrote.
Kobe Bryant Agrees To Settle Sex Suit 2
ABC news cited sources as saying the settlement covers emo-
tional and physical injuries the plaintiff claimed she suffered in con-
nection with the alleged rape.
Sources also told ABC News that sides for Bryant and his ac-
cuser will meet this week to work out details of the deal, which
could be signed by both parties by Friday.
On Monday, the long-awaited deposition by the NBA star was
postponed, prompting speculation a settlement was in'the works.
Bryant was to face a full day of questioning on Friday by L,
Lin Wood and John Clune, attorneys for Bryant's 20-year-old ac-
