Are firefighters in NMadi-
son County being prevented
from hearing radio calls be-
cause of radio "bleed-oyer?"
The question was brought
up at the Lee Town Council
meeting on June 7 and calls
show the problem appears to
be affecting other Madison
County fire ,departments.
Greenville officials say their
firefighters have encountered
the situation for a long time.
The Americus. Georgia,
fire department is on the same

radio frequency as Madison
County firefighters. And the
calls from that area come into
Madison County..
The Federal Communica-
tions Commission assigns ra-
dio frequencies. It would be
expensive to change frequen-
cies according to City of
Madison Fire Chief Alfred
Martin. .
Martin says the interfer-
ence can be a real problem and
he noted it appears to be worse
during the summer months.
He said the problem could be
seasonal or weather-related.

Random Drug Testing Should Be

Implemented For Al
A Madison County employee recently resigned from her
job, allegedly for failing to pass a drug test. Due to federal
health laws, which prohibit the release of such information from
county officials or from the drug-testing agency, it cannot be
verified by this newspaper that she actually failed the test. Re-
ports have it, however, that, after taking the test, she was given
the choice of resigning or being fired.
The person who allegedly failed the drug test was in a safe-
ty-sensitive position, where she had to drive a vehicle. She was
tested randomly. People who work for the county, who aren't in
safety-sensitive positions, do not have to take the test, unless
there are strong suspicions that they are under the influence of
drugs. They are not subject to random drug tests.
The county does have a policy where all potential employ-
ees are subject to a drug test, as well as a background check, be-
fore being hired.
The city has a policy, where all employees, including cleri-
cal, are subject to random drug tests. City Manager Tom Moffs-
es said that he has had to take the test himself a couple of times.
He also said that the city has had to fire at least two employees
who failed the test.
The school board only tests bus drivers. They don't test
teachers or others in safety-sensitive positions. They don't even
have a policy where potential employees undergo drug screen-

Swimming Waters
I never learned to swim as a child. I learned as an adult.
I have two friends, who have a daughter who works as a
lifeguard at Wild Adventures. I told their daughter the other day
about my experience at summer church camp, where my camp
counselor struck on a "brilliant" way to teach me how to swim.
"Just dive in," he said.
"Yeah," said one of my buddies. "If you can't swim, I'll
jump in after you."
I stood on the.diyiggoarldatthle deep end,gfj e pool. The.
sign-on the side- of.the-pool said that end was eight feet deep. I
still remember that sign today. "This will be easy," they told me.
"Everyone learns to swim this way."
I jumped in. I didn't dive. That was my mistake, I was told
later. I still don't believe it.
I hit the water and began to sink. I went down. Water rushed
into my lungs and into my ears and nostrils. Something told me
if I held my breath, I could make it back to the top, so I did and
quickly rose to the top. Looking around, I saw that no one was
coming to get me. I had to breathe, so I released my breath.
Down I went again. I did the same thing, this time, wonder-
ing where my buddy was. I came -back up and wondered the
same thing, as I saw the people just standing around, looking at
me. I released my breath and sank again.
I had always heard that, when you go down the third time,
you drown. I held my breath once again and'reached the top.
This -time, I noticed that someone threw out a life preserver to
me. I grabbed,hold of it and someone pulled me in.
Ezekiel 47 tells us about the swimming waters. When you
first go in, you wade in at the ankles. Then it gets up to your
waist. Finally, you reach waters where you can swim.
Over the years, I've jumped into the deep end, when I
should have waded into shallow waters. Every time, however,
I've come up, through God's grace. I'm getting to be a better
swimmer now and I don't stay down nearly as long.


1 County Employees
This newspaper believes that all public employees should
be subject to pre-employment drug screening, as well as random
drug testing once they are employed. What if a clerical worker
in a county office begins to steal money to feed his or her drug
habit? What if a schoolteacher is under the influence of cocaine
the day he or she teaches a class with your children in it?
In this age, where safety and vigilance are encouraged,
shouldn't we protect ourselves, our children and our taxpayer
dollars in Madison County first?

Little League

Should Be Fun
Dear Editor,
I recently attended a Little League baseball game in Madi-
son in order to watch my friend's, nephew play. The boys
seemed really eager to play.
Shortly into the game, as with any sport, the bo\ s needed
help (coaching) with some of the plays. Instead-of guiding the
boys through their mistakes, the head coach started yelling and
screaming at them so loudly that all the crowd could hear him.
He yelled such things as, "Thro%% your body into it! Sacrifice
your body for the team and play for the fans..they are the ones
who paid for it!"
Each time he yelled at the boys (and it was often) you could
see the disappointment in their faces as their spirits were
crushed. These kids are nine-year-olds!!!! When did comments
such as, "It's okay...you're doing good" and "have fun with it"
become obsolete?
I understand that they need to learn about the game, but
can't it be done without all the yelling and intimidation?
The other teams' coaches were great with their young
charges. They didn't yell at them; instead, a wiser arm went
aroung the youngster's shoulder and a one-on-one "coaching"
occurred. Needless to say, the other teams won.
. Whati'happened" to kiddsjust having furi? 'Whfa'h'appened-'t
team spirit and sportsmanship? Can we leave the yelling,
screaming and embarrassing coaches to coach the big leagues?
Those big guys can take it. Let's make children's sports more
about sportsmanship and having fun.
A disappointed and deafer fan, '

Daisies To College Board;

Darts To NBA Champ Planners
Daisies to the Board of Trustees at North Florida Commu-
nity College. They are working to reach the six counties in-
volved in the school. This year, they have held their regular
board meetings in Monticello, Live Oak, and Perry, plus the
meetings on our local campus. I am glad to see this outreach go-
ing on.
Big, fresh daisies ahead of time to the Chamber of Com-
merce and all our downtown businesses that will participate in
the BIIIGG Sidewalk Sale Saturday. A great idea and a nifty way
to attract folks to our very pretty town. At one of these events
sometime, can we have one of those hilarious wiener-dog races?.
Time-clock darts to whoever planned the National Basket-
ball Association Championship Series. You're blaming the low
viewership on lack-luster teams, when in reality it is based onl
your poor planning. Who wants to start watching a two- or three-
hour game at 9:30 at night? Move the starting time. and you'll
have an audience.
Jeb, Jeb, Jeb. you're getting hypodermic-type darts. Leave
the Schiavo family alone. If Terri was originally injured in some
nefarious scheme, don't you think the police, EMTs, physicians.
specialists, lawyers, or caregivers would have discovered it be-
fore now? No suggestion of such has arisen until 15 years after
the fact; the idea is made of moonshine, and targets the man \\ho
lost his wife in this tragedy. Back off and tend to a go\ emor's
real business.
Fragrant daisies to the custodial ,staff at Madison County
High School. On top of their, regular work. they are spending
their summer hours switching teachers' classrooms (including,
mine) from one space to another. Moving someone else's be-
longings can't be easy, and it can be heavy going. Thanks. peo-
Badge-shaped daisies to Madison's Police Department.
They have faced a few really risky situations recently, and \et
have handled- them with as much constraint as possible. I still
maintain that you folks don't get paid enough.
Fuzzy-wuzzy darts to parents %\\ho are not taking their kids
to the various vacation Bible schools around the county. These
-events provide great settings for children to learn urnum-taking.
manners, literature and religious background, and social skills.
In return, fields of daisies to the churches that are offering
vacation Bible schools. I've been there and done that: I under-
stand and appreciate the effort o6u expend to each our children'
Darts to smokers % ho puff away around .he, entrances to
buildings where .they work. Those wishing to go into the build-
ings have to navigate a sea of fumes and smoggy air just to get
inside. So we still smell like second-hand smoke. Seems the
non-smokers can't win, no matter what.
Darts to drivers (usually under 25) who ride do\\ n the high-
way past 10 p.m. \with their radios blasting loud enough to wake
up people sleeping in their homes. Yo! If we % anted to hear that
music, we would d be playing our own radios in our houses. Turn
s our volume down.
NMany aromatic daisies to our ARC for putting so many of
our challenged young people into jobs locally. What a wonder-
ful gift to our society, and to these young people.
Daisies to \ou if you have said a hearty "Thank you" to
someone today. These simple words s can make a tremendous im-
pact on a person's attitude and aptitude.

freezing Summer's Freshness

Fresh fruits and vegetables can surely be counted as one of
the benefits of summer, they are abundantly available. Whether
you grow them in your own garden, purchase them at a road side
stand or your favorite u-pick, they make up for the hot, humid
temperatures. If you are like most gardeners, the few plants you
started from seed expand into a crop that you can barely keep
Freezing makes it possible to take foods at their peak of
ripeness and stabilize them for later use. It is one of the easiest,
most convenient and least time consuming methods of preserv-
ing foods. The extreme cold temperature of the freezer simply
retards the growth of microorganisms and slows down chemical
changes that cause food to spoil.
The amount of food you can freeze is limited by freezer
space. If you only have a refrigerator and freezer combination,
you are very limited and may only choose to freeze a small
amount of your favorite fruit or vegetable. If you have a chest
or upright freezer, it runs more efficiently if it is at least 1/2 full.
Use food continuously from the freezer and replace it with oth-
er food. The faster the turnover, the lower the operating cost per
pound of frozen food.
Packaging and Containers
Proper packaging is vital for frozen food to keep its quality
in storage. Unprotected food is subject to oxidation and loss of
moisture which is better known as freezer burn. It alters the col-
or, texture, flavor and nutritive value of frozen foods.
Containers for freezing should be moisture proof, odorless,
resistant to breakage, easy to seal and label to maintain a good
seal. Read labels to make sure the containers you choose are
suitable for freezer storage. Rigid containers, freezer bags of
glass freezer jars are all suitable containers. Be sure to leave a
head space between to top of the food and the lid to allow for the
food to expand during freezing.
Label and Storage
Label foods so they can be easily identified. Freezer tape
and markers can be purchased at local stores. Write the type of
food, the number of servings and the date it was packaged. Ro-
tate food in your freezer so that those which have been in the
freezer the longest are the first to be used. Maintain the storage
temperature at 0AF or lower. Keep a freezer thermometer in
your freezer and check the temperature frequently.
We have USDA tested directions for freezing foods avail-
able atlhe Madison Counts Extension office. It provides safe,
up to date information for freezing your summer favorites. For
a copy, call or stop by the office.

Is there a story about the renowned Ray Charles in your
family? Perhaps, an older relative heard him play on that old
upright piano at Mr. Pitman's Red Wing Caf6 in Greenville? If
so, come prepared to tell your story Monday, June 27, as North
Florida Community College collects oral histories for publica-
tion about the music legend.
The June 27 meeting puts into high gear plans for a series
of events February 17-18 paying tribute to Greenville's own
Ray Charles. The NFCC Artist Series will sponsor a Tribute to
Ray Charles concert Friday, Feb. 17, 2006, featuring jazz en-
sembles from Florida State University, Florida A&M Universi-
ty and Valdosta State University. The concert will highlight
shared memories from residents who may have known Charles
personally as a boy or have family stories related to RC, as he
was known locally.
In a related event, the Town of Greenville has tentative
plans to unveil a sculpture of Charles in Hayes Park Saturday,

the board on being able to pay off the debt.
Lobbyist Greg Gay announced more good news the leg-
islature passed a bill allowing MCMH and other small rural hos-
pitals to hold a referendum for a one-cent sales tax. "It is on the
governor's desk now. He has 15 days to sign it or let it become
law without his signature," Gay said.
Madison County Clerk of Court Tim Sanders said that a
one-half-cent tax would produce $480,000 500,000 annually.
Trustee Oscar Brennan asked, "How much time would we
need to get the county behind us on this, to advertise and pre-
Gay said he could walk the board through the process in 5-
10 days. Sanders advised the board to contact Superintendent of
Elections Linda Howell for details on the process and the cost.
Gay added, "I would not wait for a regular. election. Go ahead
with a special referendum."
The board asked for comparisons with the new hospital in
Taylor County. Sanders and Hames said that Doctors Memorial
is a $20 million facility, financed with a one-cent tax that will
run for twenty years to pay for the building. Several members
suggested that Madison County's proposed hospital be a $10
million project with plans for additions as the county grows.
Trustee Bob Smith asked if the board should have a strate-
gic plan before going to the public for the tax. Brennan and
Sanders assured the members that they would need to present a
plan. Sanders said that, once the tax is approved, the funds will
begin coming into county coffers in January or October after the

-Considering the time needed for public meetings, canvass-
ing, and legal preparations, the board decided to pass on a No-
vember referendum and aim for late winter or early spring.
County Commissioner Roy Ellis assured the board that the
county will support them.
In other business, Todd asked Sanders, "How much is the
county paying the hospital for indigent care?"
Sanders replied that the hospital is budgeted to receive
$35,000 for in-county care and $35,000 for out-of-county care.
So far in this fiscal year (from October), the county has paid
MCMH $7700 and has paid $2500 for out-of-county care.
Hames reminded the board, "This is for what we have received.
This does not include what we have not yet been able to bill."
She said that county payments cover only a portion of the treat-
ment provided.
Todd asked Hames to present more, specific figures at the
July meeting. Stone said, "That is a selling point for the sales
tax. We can show that we provide this service."
Gay told the board that he recently learned of a $5 million
state fund supervised by the DOH specifically to cover small
budget requests submitted by rural hospitals. He is presently
getting applications for some of the funding. "Madison County'
is number two on the list of needy hospitals, so I believe we can
get a request approved," he said.
The board approved the credentialing of Firas Hamdan,

cal historic organizations.

I went to a major league baseball game last weekend. It
was fun. The noisy crowd, the colorful sights, the smells, the
sounds were all part of the afternoon. People cheered and
laughed and had fun. It was good entertainment. Few things
smell as good as onions and peppers cooking with Italian
sausage. And a bases-loaded, full-count, two-out double off the
wall is fun to watch. The man in front of us caught a foul ball
and we were all excited, I had a good time. It would have been
more fun if the home team had won the game.
What I noticed was effort by some players. There appeared
to be lack of it by others.
Let me tell you the kind of baseball player or softball play-
er or football player I like. No glamour. Just hard work. It has
become popular to use the term. "blue collar player." That's OK.
There is a college football team which I dislike very much. But
they do have a good award, presented each week during the sea-
son. It is called the "lunch bucket award." The old black lunch
box is presented to the player who worked the hardest and did
the most to help the team win during the previous game.
When discussing athletes, we will not talk much about sl0\o -
pitch softball. It is a non-sport where guys with big muscles im-
press their girlfriends by smashing softballs lobbed at less-than
blazing speeds of 30 or 40 mph. After going five for five and
winning by a score of 30-26, these "athletes" demonstrate that
they can open cans of beverages. \\.o\. Fe\\ skills are required.
There is some running. Players must catch and throw. But \\ here
is the challenge of hitting a ball thro\\ n at 100 miles per.hour?
And slowpitch offers no base stealing or bunting. I have %worked
as an.official scorekeeper for both styles of softball. Slow\pitch
involves lots of work, recording all of those runs.
Pro baseball has become a show where strong, overpaid
men, taking strange pills, also hit balls over the fence. Many
times they gripe about their paychecks.
Ah, but what of the second baseman who dives in the dirt?
What about the headfirst slide?
I have a cousin who is about five years older than I am. As
far as I know, he is the only man in history to.be named to the
college baseball All-America team and the All-World team for
men's fastpitch softball. He is in the National Softball Hall of
Fame in Oklahoma City. His name is Tom. Hustling Tom could
beat out a bunt or steal second base before anyone knew what
happened. In the field, it was dive in,,the dirt, make the play.
Tom's uniform \\ .,s always dirty by the second inning. I love that
type of ballplayer.
I like catchers. They are down in the dirt all the time. When
the runner heads for home and the catcher protects the plate,
that's better to me than the home run ball.
Then there are linemen and linebackers in football. No fi-
nesse, just blocking and tackling. These guys are battling in rain,
dust, mud, or snow. I broke my nose playing high school foot-
ball. That was not fun, but getting dirty was OK.
This is really not a sports column. I am talking about effort.
The man who gets down in the dirt and gets his job done is the
one I admire.
Maybe your job is not glamorous. Whether it is the job
which puts bread on your table or the one you volunteer for in
the church or community, it should be done with.pride and solid
effort. It may be cleaning toilets, or working in a factory, or
changing diapers or helping at a retirement home. You may be
the person who makes toothpicks or paints lines on the highway
or kills termites, or sells insurance or installs septic tanks. Per-
haps you clean motel rooms or help the dentist, or repair wash-
ing machines.
All honest work is good and should be done well.
We should give our best effort all of the time. The Bible puts
it this way, "Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy
Thanks for the example, Cousin Tom.

The Nestle Waters bottling facility in
Madison County, Florida is growing,
and we would like to invite you to grow with us.

Opportunities are available for:
Maintenance Mechanic-$17.50/hour e Blow Mold Technician-$13.35/hour
Production Operator-$11.00/hour Forklift Operator-$11.00/hour
Nestle Waters offers great pay and an outstanding benefits package that includes

For information, call 850-971-2100. To pick up an application, drop by the
bottling plant (directions below).

South of Whitty's and the
pump were besides the cotton
gin a pressing club, Brown's
Blacksmith shop and McCall's
mercantile where Mother ex-
changed her butter and eggs-
for material, thread and buttons
and, sometimes, the luxury of a
ten-pound bag of sugar. Sel-
dom was anything but syrup
used for sweenening the fami-
ly's coffee and teacakes.. A
lucky find was a bee tree and
honey for the table. But for
preserving fruits and berries
and making jams and jellies,
sugar was needed.
Across Main Street was
Johnson's General Store with
its pot-bellied stove 'and spit-
toons, a popular gathering
place, especially in winter, for
the men to wait for their wives
to finish their trading and also
enjoying a cone at the delicate
fountain tables at Whitty's.
Next to Johnson's was Lu-
cas Lamb's Meat Market
where, after harvest, one might"
be flush with enough to pur-
chase a beef roast, a real luxury.
Farmers had plenty of bacon
and sausage in their smoke-
houses and always plenty of
chickens, ducks, guineas and
geese. They also hunted and
fished, but very few had any
cattle except milk cows.
Next to Lamb's was Simon
Kinsey's Barbershop, another
popular spot for the men. For
many of the farmers, a profes-
siohal haircut was a treat,' not"
indulged in often, for all wives
could cut hair. Simon Kinsey,
Jr. said that he put himself
through college cutting hair in
his father's shop. To the west
of that building was Turling-
ton's General Store and north of
it, and across the railroad, was
Geer's Store with the bank on
the corner. On that same street
was Miss Arie Haven's Board-
ing House, a popular place for
traveling salesmen. and for any
locals who could afford the lux-
ury of dining out. In earlier
years, there was a two-story ho-
tel in that area. Behind the de-.
pot was another boarding
house. Also in earlier years,
when the circus came to town,
it encamped in the area north of
the depot. That depot was the
result of Greenberry Haven's -
who founded the town negoti-
ations with the railroad compa-
ny. Greenberry donated the
land. The section foreman was
Bill Richards.
Besides the circus coming
to town, election day always
brought not only politicians
and their long-winded speeches
promising the moon and stars
and the sun as well, but- bands
and dances on Main Street.
Everyone, including grandpar-
ents and babies, dressed up and
came to Lee from miles around.
The big town of Lee was burst-

ing at the seams.
Lee even had a dog farm
right in town. Near the old
school, John Henry Williams
raised and trained bird dogs.
Bird hunting was as much a ne-
cessity as it was a sport ,and
quail was often a part of the
evening meal, not the gourmet
delicacy of today. Wealthy
hunters from the north boarded
their dogs throughout the year,

probably Lee's first conve-
nience store. Across from the
Kinsey home was the tm o-stor)
Woodmen Hall. The Baptist-
Church near the comer later be-
came the new Woodmen Hall
after a new Baptist church was
built which, quite a few years
ago, was bought by the Greg
Raganes who moved to their:
property below Lee and remod-
eled into a lovely home. The
Methodist Church was not in
Lee originally but was moved
in a very long time ago and, in
later years, the Assembly of
God Church, which was built
near Blue Springs during the
'30's, was moved to Lee on
property between where Lillian
Allen and Jake Johnson now
live. The Lee Worship Center
is a fairly new addition to the
to' n. Also,' in the thirties
there was a place on 90, near
x, here the beNlotsis fainill
lives, which earned the name
"jook joint" because beer was
sold there.
These are only a few stops
along my' Memory Trail. I
never dwell on the past but do,
like an occasional glimpse into

it which not only holds fond
memories but is a portrait of a
time when a man's word was
his bond, when he could come
into a community \ith no
money, rent a share-croppers,
farm. bu\ all supplies for farm
and home on credit for almost
a year and his creditors knew
that, when harvesting was
done, they would be paid'
whether anything was left for
him. and his family or not. The
\ farmer might get a new pair of
"overalls and maybe a pair of
work shoes.
'. So the next year he started
again "'from scratch". But at
least b\ the second year he had
his. mule and wagon, a cow and
chickens and a couple of brood
cows. There was a plentiful
supp1i of vegetables '"jarred"
from the spring garden, fall
garden already planted, 'and
milk, butter and eggs, syrup,
grits and mean while the
smokehouse was filled with
bacon. sausage and lard with
ma% be a ham or two most of
those were sold. And, there
was no debt. So, we consid-
ered ourselves fortunate.
I"ll never forget our har-
vest time trips to Lee. Cot-
ton and corn were piled high
on the wagon and, with me
on top, we set out for town,

It is time to begin thinking
about and planning for those
things called "shots."
Children entering kinder-
garten must have proof of re-
quired immunizations.
Children entering seventh
grade will be required to have
completed Hepatitis B Series
and Tetanus Diphtheria
Booster shots.
All shots must be complet-
ed before the first day of
school. Children not immu-
nized will not be permitted to
attend school.
Parents may call the Madi-
son County Health Depart-
ment at 973-5000 or their pri-
vate physician. Parents are re-
minded to have these shots
completed to make sure their
child gets into kindergarten

their name is in mann places. They rent a large

Megan Jackson
will be competing in
the National Horse
Riding Champi-
onships in Shel-

July 17-24.
Megan will be
engaged in English
equestrian events.
She will be riding a
POA named Kat-a-
lac QT, owned by
Amanda Bunnell, of
RoMal Farms in Lee.
"She has a good
shot at winning,"
said Bunnell, who
teaches a horse riding
class. "Last year, she

placed sixth overall and finished second in one
contest out of 106 riders."
The POA (which stands for the Pony of the
Americas) is a small horse or large pony.. The
pony has to be between the height limits of 44
inches to 52 inches. The head has to be small and
dished as the Arab; the body was to be muscled as
the Quarter Horse; and the coloring had to be Ap-
paloosa, visible at 40 feet. This is a breed for chil-
dren to ride and show. Adults can only show the

Megan began
XV training competitively
three years ago. She
I was thrown. into a
southeastern regional
competition, riding
for Bunnell her first
, time out.
"She began riding
for me after I graduat-
ed from the POAs,"
t Bunnell said.
Bunnell said that
her her grandmother has
e in been raising POAs for
set the past 40 years.
eene Megan is seeking
June sponsors to help pay
her $2,500 into the
event. With entry fees,

gas and housing for both her, Bunnell and the
horse, it gets kind of expensive, said Bunnell.
To sponsor Megan, please call her mother,
Roxanne Jackson, at 973-2600.
Megan has been preparing herself by making
lots of jumps with Kat-a-lac QT and training with
an Olympic equestrian from Fort White.
To contact Bunnell, who teaches horse riding
to children five and up, please call her on her cell
phone at 352-516-2031.

the teams will be on the road
again this weekend. The girls
travel to Dothan, Alabama for
Both teams did well in
the Panama City, event which
had between 40-50 teams.
The 12U team took fourth
place and the 14U squad was
sixth. The teams are known as
the Tri-County Merchants,
and are sponsored by busi-
nesses in the, area.
Although several players
had good weekends. Casey
Ogden was a standout for the
younger team. She had a .667
batting average for the tour-
nament. This would be a good
number for baseball or slow-
pitch softball, but is extreme-
ly high for the fastpitch game.

Found Boy Scout

Released From Hospital,
The 11-year-old boy who wandered lost for four days in
a mountain wilderness before rescuers found him was re-
leased from a hospital early Wednesday, a spokeswoman
Brennan Hawkins was found in good condition Tuesday
by a 43-year-old house painter on an ATV who was out look-
ing on his own, miles outside of active search grids.
Brennan left Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt
Lake City not long after midnight, said Bonnie Midget, a
hospital spokeswoman. Doctors had said they wanted to
keep him at least overnight for tests, said Dr. Ed Clark, the
hospital's medical director.
The boy apparently eluded thousands of searchers by
defying conventional wisdom: He went up instead of down.
Sheriff Dave Edmunds had said Brennan would have
been more likely to head, down a river valley from a 530-
acre Boy Scout camp in the Uinta mountains.
"Typically children walk downhill, along the least path
of resistance," he said. That possibility raised particular.
fears because the East Fork of the Bear River, which is nor-
mally ankle-deep, was swollen by heavy mountain snow
However, Brennan had hiked some 600 feet higher and
more than five miles into the mountains to the spot where
searcher Forrest Nunley found him before noon Tuesday.
"I turned a corner and there was a kid standing in the
middle of the trail. He was all muddy and wet," from walk-
ing over wet ground, said Nunley, who dialed 911 on his cell
phone and said he was lucky to find a signal.
"People say that, the heavens are closed and God no
longer answers prayers. We are here to unequivocally tell
you that the heavens are not closed, prayers are answered
and children come home," said Brennan's mother, Jody
The boy had seen some searchers on horseback but
avoided them because he was scared, Nunley said. "He was
a little delirious. I sat him down and gave him a little
After downing bottles of water and eating all the granola
bars carried by a group of volunteer searchers, the boy asked
to play a video game on one rescuer's cell phone, the sheriff
The youngster from the Salt Lake City suburb of Boun-
tiful was found on a 9,400-foot pass above Lily Lake, a sum-
mer-only campground in the Uinta range. He was quickly re-
united with his parents and their four other children.

U.S. Spy Plane

Pilot Dies In Asia Crash

A U.S. Air Force U-2 spy plane has crashed in southwest
Asia while returning to its base, killing the pilot, the military
said Wednesday.
The cause of Tuesday night's crash was under investiga-
tion, U.S. Central Command said in a statement.
One official said the location of the crash was not re-
leased because "host nation sensitivities" were involved.
The Central Command's statement used the term "south-
west Asia," which can be used as a substitute for describing
the Middle East.
The pilot was returniijg to a base from a mission in sup-
port of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.
"The specific location is not releasable due to host na-
tion sensitivities," U.S. Air Force Capt. David W. Small, a
Central Command spokesman, said in an e-mail when asked
for more information.

In Washington, Lt. Col. Barry Venable, a Pentagon
spokesman, said the plane had completed a mission related
to U.S. operations in Afghanistan and crashed as it was re-
turning to its base, the location of which he did not dis-
A U.S. security team was at the site of the crash, he said.
American U-2s operate out of a base in the United Arab
Emirates, although U.S. military officials refuse to discuss
this fact at the UAE's request.
The U-2 operates at an altitude of more than 70,000 feet,
beyond the range of most surface-to-air missiles. It has been
used by American forces for decades.
A U-2 was shot down May 1, 1960, over Soviet territo-
ry while photographing Soviet missile installations. After
parachuting to safety, pilot Francis Gary Powers was cap-
tured and later convicted as a spy. He was held for almost
two years before being traded for a KGB captive.

Cobra Bites At

Hand That Feeds It
A snake handler in
Cyprds was fighting for his
life Tuesday after a king co-
bra bit the hand that fed him,
authorities said.
The hooded snake bit his
master when the man, 43,
stuck his.hand into a cage

Cypriot religious festival at-
tended by thousands of peo-
ple Monday evening.
I' nPoison from the king co-

to a hospital where he was

Murder Memorabilia

On Auction In New York
Want to own a section of white picket, fence from the
grassy knoll in Dallas where President John F. Kennedy's
assassin may have stood?
That rotting fence and other ghoulish items related to in-
famous deaths are part of a sale of Americana at a New York-
auction house that specializes in sports and pop culture
Amofig about 2,000 movie, rock n' roll and sports-relat-
ed items in the June 23-24 auction, are a handful of lots with
morbid associations.

They include a business card with a handwritten note
by convicted wife-killer Scott Petersoh, whose trial and
.death sentence drew nationwide. attention, and a framed
newswire photograph of Jack Ruby assassinating Lee Har-
vey Oswald.
The promotional material from Leland's auction house
says of the fence: "For JFK conspiracy buffs, it ... offers a
chance to find clues about the still unexplained events in
Dallas that dark day."
As of Monday, bids for the fence, conducted online, had
reached $5,500 for the portion of fence. The Peterson busi-
ness card had a $665.50 bid, but was expected to fetcha few
thousand dollars before the auction closes. according to Le-
land's. The Rub\ photo was bid at SI175. -
"I try to stay away from ghoulish for ghoulish sake,"
said Josh Evans,; 43, founder of Leland's, based, on Long Is-
land, New York. "I think there is a difference between sell-
ing a real document and then selling something that is
bizarreor in bad taste."
Merle Allin, a New Jerse\ -based collector t ho has bought
and sold serial-killer artwork since 1989. said the popularity\ of
real crime TV shows combined with people's obsession %with
death and celebrity has spurred demand for murder memorabil-
"Everyone wants to own a piece of a celebrity or some-
one that's infamous," he said. "There is no question. Amer-
ican culture is death obsessed."
Naftali Berrill. a forensic psychologist and professor at
Manhattan's John Jay College of Criminal Justice, said
some people develop an emotional connection to infamous
crimes, in part because of media coverage of high-profile
'All this stuff is in bad taste, but that's what our culture
has become," Berrill said.
Two items that were slated to be part of the auction
were considered by some to be in bad taste, notably a piece
of metal and a propeller from the 19"2 plane-crash that
killed former profeisibshaF' .'-
