Valentine Recognized For Inspiring Excitement About Local Government


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.,
Madison City Commis-
sioner Myra Valentine was
featured in the March/April
2007 Quality Cities, the oigan
publication of the Florida
League of Cities.)
The article, entitled "City
Official Inspires Excitement
About Local Government,"
was about Valentine's work
with Madison Academy. This


will be the sixth year that
Valentine has taken fifth-
graders from the Academy to
visit Florida's capital city of
Tallahassee.
Valentine said that the
idea for visiting the Capitol
came to her several years ago,
when she was attending the
Institute for Elected Municipal
Officials (IEMO), an educa-
tional program for elected mu-
nicipal officials, which is of-


fered by the Florida League of
Cities, as well as the John
Scott Dailey Florida Institute

Different stops on the tour
include a visit to Florida's
Capitol building, where the
students visit various senators
and representatives and learn
about the House and the Sen-
ate.

WE ARE WINNING THE WAR IN IRAQ THANKS TO OUR TROOPS


I am forwarding, complete with the names of
the group of military friends in communication
.through regular e-mails, the communication from
an experienced, older officer who returned to the
States for treatment of non-combat injury. All
who wonder how news from U.S. media affects
troops on duty in Iraq may get an answer. Notice

Our American

Government
"..ramshackle government.. .about to col-
lapse from any one of many weaknesses: the
inability to impose or collect taxes; the lack of
a strong court system; a pathetic weakness in
the face of likely invasions . ; the absence of
an effective way to settle internal arguments; .
.revolution against manifestations of govern-
ment ."
BUT THAT'S OUR AMERICAN GOV-
ERNMENT BY 1786-87 in James Michener's
words in his novel, LEGACY, pages 23-24 ..

Constitution years after independence. (The
rebellion was Shay's. Rebellion in Massachu-

I'm Called To Be An Evangelist
"But you be watchful in all things, endure
afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill
your ministry."
(2 Timothy.4:5, NKJV)

If you are a Christian, you have been called
to be an evangelist. This does not mean that
you have to go from church to church, con-
ducting revival services. It does mean, ho\\e\-
er, that you have to spread the Gospel of Jesus
Christ throughout the.world, .1.n' ,I.
There are a number of ways that each per-
son can fulfill their ministry as an evangelist.
Many have the talent to preach and to teach.
Others have a gift of kindness that enables oth-
ers to see Christ through them. I do believe,
however, that everyone has a special calling
from God given to each Christian. That calling
is to live the life that Christ would have you
live.
If you live as Christ wants you to and love
others as you love yourself, you will be doing
the work of an evangelist. Others will see the
transforming power of Christ in your life and
be compelled to ask.you about it. Then, you can
share the Gospel with them.
Remember, the most important person on
Earth is the Holy Spirit. He is the Comforter
and Helper that Christ promised would come
after He ascended into Heaven.
Go into the world and preach the Gospel.
Be an evangelist. Who knows? You may touch
more souls than Billy Graham.

"I'm Tired" Two weeks ago, as I was starting
my sixth month of duty in Iraq, I was forced to re-
turn to the USA for surgery for an injury I sus-
tained prior to my deployment. With luck, I'll re-
turn to Iraq to finish my tour.
I left Baghdad and a war that has every indi-
cation that we are winning, to return to a demor-
alized country much like the one I returned to in
1971 after my tour in Vietnam. Maybe it's be-
cause I'll turn 60 years old in just four months,
but I'm tired: I'm tired of spineless politicians,
both Democrat and Republican who lack the
courage, fortitude, and character to see these dif-
ficult tasks through. I'm tired of the hypocrisy of
politicians who want to rewrite history when the
going gets tough. I'm tired of the disingenuous
clamor from those that claim they 'Support the
Troops' by wanting them to 'Cut and Run' before

At Last The Birds

Are Singing
On Easter Sunday and for several days
thereafter, the birds around my house were ,i
frozen. A brave few attempted to welcome the :
season, but they soon retreated to a thick
grapevine trying to find warmth. Now, at last,
they are giving me a concert from morning un- j
til evening. .
This morning, even before sunrise, a little
bird began his song outside my window. He
sang his little heart out bejeeper, bejeeper -
then switched to jeebejer, jeebejer; Some other
bird must surely recognize the different mean-
ings in his song, but to me it's just music.
The robins flocking into the front yard hop -
around pecking for seeds and murmuring like a
choir of background singers. The cardinals call
from the nearby bushes in the afternoons. The
sand cranes hooted their distinctive call as they '.
passed over the lake, and some little wren-
looking things chirp merrily under the pecan <
tree.
The most fascinating is the mockingbird.
Whenever I put in a CD or tune in some radio M
music, he sdmelow' "hears it. H 'Hlibs't8 ,'''
branch in the camellias and sings along. In fact,
sometimes he sings so loudly that I can hardly
hear my music. He's not picky; he accompanies
any sort of music from Southern gospel to folk,
from rock and roll to classical. He sings until I
turn the music off. It's like he can't help him-
self. I smile because I understand that need to
sing.
If you don't have a window slightly open
so you can hear the birdsong in your yard, rec-
tify that immediately. Until you have that mu-
sical background to your thoughts and activi-
ties, you don't know what you're missing.
Even the mockingbird sounds like he has com-
posed a beautiful melody.
How glad I am that the warm weather has
finally allowed the birds to come out and tune J
up in all their glory. Their harmonies make my
day complete from beginning till end. Okay, so ,q
a couple of crows add a discordant note occa-
sionally. That simply makes me appreciate the
other songs more deeply.
Open your window and listen. Your heart ;
will feel a lift as the birds sing to you.

You Can Reduce Your Debts
Feel like you're swimming in debt with no end in sight? It may
not be a great comfort to know that you are not alone; recent news
reports reveal that Americans are 2.3 trillion dollars in debt. Over-
spending and debt has become the American way of life. You can't
make your debts disappear, but you can develop a plan to pay them
off. Before April (National Literacy Month) is over, make a plan
for getting yourself out of debt.
First thing you need to do is to get a clear amount of your total
debt. Sit down with all of your bills and write everything on paper.
Make a list of each debt and the balance owed on each. It may be
shocking to see the total figure, but you need to know the exact dol-
lar figure. Once it is on paper, don't be overwhelmed, take action
and develop a repayment plan.
Talk with your family about the need to reduce your debt.
Everyone needs to be a part of the solution or the plan won't work.
Be positive as you explain the situation; it is temporary and needs
the cooperation of everyone. Ask each family member (including
children) to cut back on their own expenses. If one family member
is careless with their spending, it can put you into a deeper hole and
further delay your goal.
Call your creditors before you get behind in payments. They
are usually willing to help you work out a plan when you have made
the effort to contact them. What they don't like to do is contact you
because you've missed payments. Try to work out a payment plan
you can handle.
The best strategy for reducing your debt is to pay off the small-
est bills first. Pay more than the minimum payment. How do you
accomplish this when there is not enough money to cover monthly
payments? Find small amounts of money during the month; save
your pocket change each day, cut back on the number of sodas and
coffee you buy, eat out less. Trim back on flexible expenses like
groceries, gas, and electricity. Take this "new found" money out of
your wallet and put it in a money jar; when it's time to make a pay-
ment, add it o the regular m';'nhl anou nt. lr :j::: b .-
Once the smallest bill is paid off, add that payment plus your
"extra" money to the next smallest balance. Some experts refer to
this as "power" payments. As you continue to pay off bills, roll the
payment into the next bill to be paid off. This snowball effect of
adding more-money to debts will get you into a manageable debt
load before you know it.
While you are paying off debts, don't make purchases on your
credit cards. Use a "cash only" policy. Sounds like an impossible
task? It is easier than you think. Plan your spending; reduce the
number of trips to the stores, and compare prices on purchase you
make.
For more information on money management and developing
a personal spending plan, contact the Madison County Extension
Service.

In addition, the Shrine Center will be having its annual
Silent Auction, with numerous exciting items available. There
will be a weekend trip to Las Vegas (including plane tickets &
hotel); two previously owned cars; weekends at Panama City;
restaurant certificates; plus many more gifts and gift certificates.
Plus, the Shriners are having a "Country Store," where
items may be purchased without bidding. There will be a
"Beanie Baby Booth" with over 500 collectible Beanie Bears
from the "early" more valuable years, to many at your choice,
for only $4 each. Some are worth over a hundred dollars. The
Rainbow Girls, an organization affiliate of the Shriners, will
man the booth.
There will also be a "Chili Cook's Comer," with items for
decorating your kitchen or booth. The Daughters of the Nile
will provide desserts, cold drinks and popcorn. The "Angel
Band" will provide music, plus there will be other musical tal-
ents performing.
There will be plenty of children's entertainment, some by
the "Loon A Tics," who do magic and balloon art.
The Shriners will also have a booth with local area au-
thor/artist, Tommy Greene of Madison, who is a Past Potentate
of Marzuq Shrine Center, and who will be signing his latest
book of recipes entitled, "Florida Cookin' Wild Style." This is
a book all men and women need in the kitchen. Each wild game
recipe can use wild meat mentioned, or it can be substituted for
pork, beef, or chicken. This is a "must have" book for all ages.
Included in the book are original pen-and-ink drawings done by
the author/ artist of each animal.
A portion of the sales from the book will be donated to the
Marzuq Shrine Center.
Potentate of Marzuq Shrine Center, Gordon Hancock and
his Lady Roz said, "As you can see, this will be 4 hours packed
with fun, food, and fellowship, and the weather will be a beau-
tiful spring day to enjoy a family outing."
Remember to tell all your friends, relatives, and area ac-
quaintances about this fun day filled with good food and a frol-
ic time for all.

Neither The House Nor Senate
Neither The House Nor Senate


Plan To Fund NFCC Minority
Enrollment Pilot Program
Neither the House nor Senate plan to fund North Florida
Community College's Minority Enrollment Pilot Program for
2007-2008. However, Sen. Al Lawson, D-Tallahassee, said he
will "fight" for funding in the upcoming budget committee
meetings.
Senate and House members hope to produce a compromise
budget by May 1, which the Legislature must vote on before ad-
journment scheduled for May 4.
NFCC asked the state for $800,000 to recruit, retain and
graduate African American men.
Last year, the college got $325,000 from the state to launch
the Minority Enrollment Pilot Program.
The' program is' a basketball academy, designed to attract
African American males to an NFCC athletic program that em-
phasizes academics.
"Students involved in this program receive individualized
assessment of their academic needs, in addition to the sports and
fitness," said Gerri Bucher, executive director of government re-
lations.
The academy is directed NFCC basketball Head Coach
Clyde Alexander.
He said 22 students enrolled in the academy in August.
Eighteen are still in the program. Alexander said four students
left the academy for personal reasons.
The academy recruits high school and college-level African
American males from six counties Madison, Hamilton, Jeffer-
son, Lafayette, Suwannee and Taylor counties.
"These students are not blue-chippers. These students are
students who didn't make it to the collegiate level for one reason
or another. This program is giving them the opportunity to con-
tinue playing," Alexander said.
The, academy is increasing male enrollment, overall, at
NFCC, said Alexander. "The school is 60-percent female and
40-percent male. It's not, a black-male problem alone it's a male
problem for total enrollment," he said.
The basketball academy functions as a club-level sport. Par-
ticipants have supervised daily practices and 12 annually sched-
uled scrimmage games vs. intercollegiate community college
basketball teams. NFCC reports that participants-are mentored
by NFCC athletic staff, to help build rapport, set examples and
show the young men that higher education is important and; at-
tainable. -
The state allocated $2.235 million to upgrade NFCC's gymi-"
nasium, which is home to the basketball academy.
"We, are adding square footage to the gymnasium to better
accommodate this added program as well as to expand the re-
cruitment into all athletic programs," Bucher said.
"The current facility -is overcrowded and in immediate need
of repair and renovation," according to NFCC documents. "The
renovated facility will offer students a modem fitness center,
clean classrooms, and access to health, wellness and exercise
courses."

A Panacea doctor and his wife are facing
numerous charges of prescription and insur-
ance fraud following a seven-month investiga-
tion by the North Florida Drug Diversion Re-
sponse Team.
Arrest warrants were filed against Jeffrey
Calaluca, 48, in Leon and Wakulla counties
charging him with a total of 48 felony counts.
His wife, Cindy Lee Calaluca, 55, was charged
with seven counts of insurance fraud in Leon
County. She had been arrested in March on
eight counts of withholding information from a
practitioner, charges that stemmed from the
same investigation. Following that arrest she
was released on a $4,000 bond.
The couple practice at Forgotten Coast Po-
diatry in Panacea. Calaluca is a podiatrist and
his wife is a nurse practitioner. Cindy Calalu-
ca is listed as owner of the practice.
The investigation began last September
when an area pharmacist became suspicious of
prescriptions ordered by Calaluca and report-
ed it to DRT. The resulting investigation re-
vealed that Calaluca allegedly ordered pre-
scriptions for people Who were not patients
then either used the drugs himself. The inves-
tigation also showed a pattern of "doctor shop-


ping", a term used to describe a method of ob-
taining prescription drugs illegally by seeking
prescriptions from more than one doctor for
the same medical need.
Calaluca turned, himself in at the Wakulla
County Jail and was charged with two counts
of obtaining controlled substance by fraud and
12 counts of writing a prescription with no
medical necessity. He also faces charges in
Leon County of withholding information from
a practitioner (five counts), 12 counts of ob-
taining controlled substances by fraud, 14'
counts of writing a prescription with no med-
ical necessity, and three counts of insurance
fraud. All the charges are third-degree
felonies.
The Drug Diversion Response Team is a
task force made up of state and federal agen-
cies that have authority to investigate criminal
misuse of prescribed medications. This can in-
clude doctors who illegally prescribe, pharma-
cists who illegally distribute, and individuals
who illegally obtain prescription drugs. DRT
agencies involved in this investigation include
Florida Department of Law Enforcement,
Florida Department of Health and the U.S.
Drug Enforcement Administration.


Pinellas County School Teacher Arrested

For Possession Of Child Pornography
Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) arrested Charles Franklin
Taylor, 36, of Largo, Fla. late yesterday evening and charged him with seven counts of comput-
er pornography and one count of distributing computer pornography. More charges may follow
after a full forensic review of Taylor's computers.
Taylor became a suspect during an undercover operation by the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement Computer Crime Center, 'Pinellas County Sheriff's Office and the North Florida In-
ternet Crimes Against Children Taskforce. Agents were able to determine that Taylor was utiliz-
ing his home computer to download and distribute child pornography. Following the execution of
a search warrant at Taylor's residence, agents confiscated a large collection of images and videos.
Taylor was subsequently arrested and booked into the Pinellas County jail on a $10,000 bond.
Taylor is an eighth-grade teacher at Tyrone Middle School in Pinellas County and a Boy Scout
leader.
FDLE is an active member of the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
This task force is one of 45 federally-funded task forces nationwide created solely to investigate
Internet crimes against children that. include the online sexual exploitation of children and child
pornography.

The Town of Greenville, since its beginning in
1850, has had three designations. Its first name was
"Sandy Ford," which was carried as an official Post Of-
4 fice in the. Federal Postal Records of September 30,
1859. The Post Office -was actually established be-
tween 1857-1859. Later when the railroad came
through, the town was called "Station Five," due to its
fifth-stop east of Tallahassee. Then in the dramatic mo-
ments of the War Between the States, a woman's circle
was organized to sew for the soldiers of the Confeder-
ate Army, and when the first packages were sent out to
them bearing the name Station Five, the Quartermaster
wrote to the president of the organization, and de-
manded that the packages be given in the name of some
A town, so the ladies met and agreed to call the Town
Greenville, as a tribute to their President, Mrs. U. M.

A mock emergency shut
down the block around Madi-
son County Memorial Hospital
for several hours on Tuesday,
April 17.
The mock emergency was
part of a Disaster Preparedness
Training Drill, organized by
the state, to help the local hos-
pital be prepared in case of an
emergency. Hospital personnel
worked a.situation where peo-
ple had been contaminated
with a substance, later identi-
fied as organic phosphate.
Students from the Health
Science course at the high
school, as well as the Patient
Care program at North Florida
Community College played
the roles of victims. When the
victims arrived on the scene,
they were immediately taken
to a Decontamination Tent,
where they were sprayed down
with disinfectant.
The Madison County
Health Department, Emer-
gency Management, EMS,
Madison Fire and Rescue and
local law enforcement took
part in the drill.
Jim Stanley, Emergency
Management Director, said
that the state agency responsi-
ble for the drill said, "Madison
County Memorial Hospital did
as good a job as any hospital in.
the state in .preparing for thO,
emergency."


"Patients" were taken into the decontamination tents where they were sprayed
off to fight the mysterious substance. (Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Jacob Be-
mbry, April 17,2007)

TORNADOES
A Tornado Watch means that con-
ditions are favorable for tornadoes
to develop. It is normally issued for
4 to 6 hours and includes many
counties. If you are in or near the
tornado watch area, stay informed
via NOAA Weather Radio, commer-
cial radio or television. Keep your
eye on the sky, and be prepared to
take cover at short notice, as torna-
does can occur with little or no
warning.
A Tornado Warning means that a
tornado has been sighted or a
developing tornado is reported by
trained spotters or indicated on
Doppler radar. A warning is typical-
ly issued for a small area for less
than an hour. If a tornado warning is
issued in your area ... take cover
immediately!

Happenings At


Madison First Baptist Church


Jesus said to the disciple Thomas, "You
have seen me and believed, but blessed are
those who have not seen me, and yet have be-
lieved." Amen!
If everything had been written about Jesus
that could have been written, the world could
not have held it all. Isn't it so wonderful that
He knows our names and calls each of us by.
our name!
Preacher's message was "The Week After
Easter" and he noted the absence of so many -
right in the middle of church. He mentioned
several times the sweet special service as
Tiffany Smith and Jay Anderson were baptized
by Preacher Brad Clark and then Brett and Sta-
cy Frakes dedicated little Caroline Lucile
(Lucy) Frakes with Lizie and Cammie stand-
ing with the family. At the close of service,
Preacher had Stacy's mother and step-dad.
from North Carolina and Brett's mother with
Texas stand with them at the front, along with
Tiffany and Jay.
Beautiful flowers were placed in the
church in honor of Breast Cancer Survivors.
They matched Preacher's tie.
Amy Robinson sang, "Jesus Will Still Be
There."
Billy Washington expressed thanks for
such love and outpouring of care in the death
of his mother. Her service was full of joy.
Marjell sailed 25 years and Mama always
worried about him on the sea far away and said
when she needed him, he wouldn't be here, but
he was, only because his 15-year-old nephew,
Larry Whitehead, of Starke, was killed as he
was chasing his mare on the highway. He saw
the car meeting him, but not the one behind
that hit him, so on March 30, 1963, we came
'home and were still here when his mother died
suddenly of a massive heart attack on April 18,
1963.
That night, Marjell wrote this poem:
Soft rain in our life has now fallen and left
our home so lonely and drear,
A gentle voice in Heaven was calling,
"Welcome, Mama dear."
Sad was your leaving, Mama,


A link in the family chain is now broken,
We'll think not of soft words and sweet
phrases left forever unspoken.
Please burn a beacon or light a candle for
me
In a window of your cabin built by the
Carpenter from Galilee.
"Preserve me, 0 God, for in you I put my
trust." Psalm 61:1
Although not everyone is protested from
danger and hurt, we truly give thanks for the
miracle for our Duran cousins, who came from
Colorado for their brother Benjamin's wedding
on Saturday. On Monday afternoon, two of
them had a dreadful accident near the
Nazarene Church, yet walked away.
Our Dorcas/Mary Martha Sunday School
met with Louise Browning to honor her since
her 99th birthday was April 8. How blessed we
wee! Such a touching prayer Mildred Bruner
wrote for her 86th birthday and Sue Quick read
it for us present: Louise, Lois Wainwright,
Sue, Mildred, Iduma Smith, our daughter Sara
Dene of Mobile, our teacher Debbie Bass and
I. Bless her, all her family and her caretakers.
Thankful Doris Raines is home. Edith
Davis had a better report. Derry Cruce is re-
covering from surgery. Penny Barrs, Florence
Boatman, Eulee Margaret Dietrich, Dyan
Blanton and her parents, Ron and Sadie
Barfield and their family and all the.many,
many other ones.
Remember the bridal shower for Jennifer
Dorman on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. in the fellow-
ship hall.
We had a "thank you" for hosting the
semi-annual meeting of the Middle Florida
Baptist Association on April 10. "Many
thanks," says Gene Stokes.
If you haven't turned in your veterans' pic-
tures, remember to send them to the office to
be copied.
What sadness in the deaths at Virginia
Tech! Bless all involved and everyone in all
the world.
May the Lord bless us one and all and give
us strength for the day. Amen!

This Earth Day, Save The Planet


B\ Je.-ica Higginbotham
Grn Puinibhmic. lnc'.
An ancient lc\ ish rmidrash teaches that when God took Adam
around the Garden of Eden and showed him its magnificence and
splendor. God -poke to him saying, "If you destroy it, there is no
one else beside \ou "
On April 22. 1970. the tirst Earth Day was celebrated. Since
that d.. 37 \ear ago. Earth Day has been celebrated in the Unit-
ed State and \%orld-\w ide
That bit blueberry\ in the sky is home to over six and one
half billion people, and countless species of plants, an-
imalk. and insects. Over 70 percent of Earth is cov-
ered in \ water, and the remaining 30 percent is being
raped of its \ alue every single day.
On the first NASA mission to space, astronaut
James Irwin remarked upon seeing the Earth
from his window that, "This beautiful,
warm living object looked so fragile, so
Delicate, that if you touched it with a
finger it would crumble and fall apart."
Indeed, humanity has touched its finger
to Earth, and without a global effort to
curb the effects of the human race on the
planet, it will crumble. In fact, the Earth has


begun to deteriorate at a rapidly increasing rate.
As a result of global warming and a general neglect for the en-
vironment, the Earth is in a state of disrepair. Simple things can
be done in the home to combat the effects of humanity on the
Earth. It's as easy as swapping out those incandescent light bulbs
for more energy efficient Compact Fluorescent Bulbs. These
bulbs save energy and will cut costs in the long run.
That pesky air conditioner uses way too much energy- espe-
cially if it's left on during the day when no one is home. In this
area, since it's still nice and breezy, most folks just leave the win-
dows wide open. It airs out the house and saves cash by keeping
the AC bill way down.
The dish washer and washing machine can use cold water, in-
stead of hot, and that helps conserve energy. By only operating
those devices when loads are full, water can be conserved as well.
Another great way to conserve water is by making sure that the
faucets aren't dripping water. By taking one extra second and
turning the knob completely, people can save 50 gallons of water
a day.
It isn't that difficult to save energy and protect the Earth. If
people continue to abuse this tenuous Earth, it will cease to sup-
port humanity. This Earth Day, people every where are urged to
take action- peaceful actions that will insure that the planet does
continue giving life.


We Do Not Inherit The Earth From Our Ancestors...

... we borrow it from
our children. -Native
American Proverb.
-H Most of the energy
that Americans 'use
comes from non-re-
newable sources. Oil,
natural gas, nuclear,
and, coal power are all,
non-renewable. These
energy sources cannot
be replenished over a
short period of time. It
S takes millions of years
for oil, petroleum, ura-
nium and coal to form
beneath the earth's sur-
.^' face, and once they run
out, they can't be gotten
back.
Using non-renewable
energy also adds to the level
of greenhouse gases present in
the atmosphere. The release of
carbon, and other more harmful
b' products has caused irreversible
damage to the protective Ozone bios-
-il er I &' -.,I


The use of solar energy has not been
opened up because the oil industry does
not own the sun. -Ralph Nader, quoted
in Linda Botts, ed., Loose Talk, 1980
By converting to more. efficient re-
newable energy sources, people will be-
gin to see a positive curve form. People
might not be able to reverse the damage
that they've caused, but by using renew-
able energy, any further problems can be
avoided.
Wind, solar, tidal, biomass, hydro-
electric, and geothermal energies are all
renewable, and relatively inexpensive.
In fact, these "greener" solutions are
available today by calling local power
companies, people can begin having
sustainable energy pumped to their
homes, all for a small premium on the
monthly power bill. After time, that
small premium will pay for itself in en-
ergy saved.
One of the simplest ways to combat
energy inefficiency is to swap out the
light bulbs in the home for Compact
Fluorescent Lightbulbs, which reduce
the amount of energy used. They can be
purchased at many chain retailers and
.local hardware stores..
'Landfills are fill of harmful waste


that will eventually seep into the soil
and groundwater. According to the En-
vironmental Protection agency, all land-
fills will eventually leak in the environ-
ment.
At home, people can keep from
adding to the detriment already caused
by setting up recycling receptacles to
catch things that 'can be reused. Alu-
minum cans from all those soda, glass
bottles from parties, paper from the at
home printer; and plastic milk jugs, as
well a plethora of other items are recy-
clable. There is no viable reason, why
millions of pounds of these items are
disposed of in landfills each year.
By filling landfills with waste, hu-
mans are responsible for the contamina-
tion of groundwater sources and the dec-
imation of surrounding land.
We abuse land. because we regard it
as a commodity belonging to us. When
we see land as a community to which we
belong, we may begin to use it with love
and respect. -Aldo Leopold, A Sand
County Almanac
This Earth Day, not only celebrate
that which gives and supports life, but
make a change. Become a conscious
participant.

A small drip from a faucet can waste up to
50 gallons of water a day.
Rainforests once covered 14% of the
Earth's land surface; now the\ only cover 6%.
It is estimated that the last remaining rain-
forests could be consumed in less than 40
years.
137 plant, animal, and insect species are

Madison County Relay For Life Just Around The Corner


The American Cancer Society's Research
and Training Program supports the best cancer
research across a wide range of health care dis-
ciplines to meet needs critically important to
the control of cancer. Out program supports ba-
sic, preclinical, clinical (including cancer con-
trol, psychosocial, behavioral, and health ser-


vices), epidemiologic, .and
health policy and outcomes
research and training.
As the largest source of
private, not-for-profit cancer
research funds in the US, the
Society dedicates almost
$108 million each year to re-
search and health profession-
al training, with less than 5%
of that amount going toward
the operating expenses of the
research program.
Since 1946, when the


Society awarded its first research grants, we've
invested more than $2.2 billion in research. The
investment has paid rich dividends: the 5-year.
survival rate has almost tripled since 1946, and
. the new case rate and death rate from cancer
have declined'each year since 1990.
The Society's Epidemiology and Surveil-
. lance Research program investigates cancer
risks factors such as smoking, diet, and envi-
ronmental exposures and monitors cancer inci-
dence, mortality, and cancer patient care. This
research is carried out by Society staff and vol-
unteers.
The Society's Behavioral Research Center
conducts basic and applied research to better
Understand how various behaviors influence
the prevention, early detection, and treatment
of cancer.
Scientists supported by the American Can-
cer Society have made great contributions. For
example, they:
Established the link between cigarette
smoking and lung cancer.

The Society finds grants through an exter-
nal peer review process that employs expert
judgment and avoids conflicts of interest.
Grant applications are ranked on the basis
of merit by discipline-specific, Peer Review
Conmuinees (PRCs) on which serve 12-25 sci-
entific advisors, or peers, who are-, experts in
their fields. At least one lay person, called a
stakeholder, who has a serious interest in can-
cer but little or no formal science training is
also a member of each PRC. The Council for
Extramural Grants, a committee of senior sci-
entist and two stakeholders, make final funding
decisions based on PRC evaluations, the Soci-
ety's mission,; and the amount of money avail-
able.


Facts About The American Cancer Sociel


The American Cancer Society is the
nationwide community-based voluntary
health. organization dedicated to elimi-
nating cancer as a major health concern.
We strive to do this by preventing can-
cer, saving lives from cancer, and dimin-
ishing suffering from cancer through re-
search, education, advocacy, and service.
The American Cancer Society is
recognized as the #1 cancer fighting vol-
S unteer health organization in America.
m. 93% of Americans recognize and
have a very favorable opinion of the
American Cancer Society.
The American Cancer Society
:continues to be the leader in cancer re-
U search. Our research dollars have been a
part of every detection and treatment dis-


cover made. We have sponsored 29 No-
bel Prize winning researchers in the last
50 years.
Every year more than $ 6 million
dollars are spent by the American Cancer
Society in the Southeast's outstanding
research institutions.
One out of three people now living
will be diagnosed with cancer.
1,400 people a day die from can-
cer.
One out of five deaths is a result of
cancer.
Over the last 50 years cancer sur-
vival rates have risen 10% to 50%. They
could rise even more if people knew and i

Class Of 2007 Celebrates Prom


By Ashley Bell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madison County High
School's Class of 2007, better
known as the "Class of 007," cele-
brated their senior prom Saturday,
April 14, from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m.
The phrase "Class of 007" was
coined during the present seniors
sophomore year. The Class Presi-
dent unintentionally forgot the 2 on
"2007" when making the home-
coming float. Since that day the
"Class of 2007" have been known
as the "Class of 007."
The junior class did a swell job
at coming up with and decorating
for the theme of "Enchanted Gar-
den." The high school gym was
cleverly disguised as a captivating
garden, fully equipped with a DJ
and dance floor.
"I had so much fun and the kids
were absolutely great," said Van
Wilson, who provided the .music.
"(The teachers) have done a great
job with the students. They were
respectful, helpful, and good to


each other as well. I love (being a
DJ) for a group like that."
The Juniors would like to
extend a special thanks to the fol-
lowing businesses and citizens for
their donations and use of their
equipment for the 2007 "Enchant-
ed Garden" Prom: The Rosery
Florist, Fraleigh Nursery, Joe P.
Burns Funeral Home, Emergency
Management, and all the parents
who donated items or helped.
Now for the most important
news of prom the prom King and
Queen... The nominees for King
were: Demarious "DJ" Folsom,
Jehrad Crews, Drew Douglas, and
S Paul Webb. The nominees for
S Queen were: Allie Smith, Rhonda
Bruton, Robbie Griffin, and Stacy
Glee. Drum roll, please! Demari-
ous "DJ" Folsom and Robbie
Griffin were crowned as Prom
King and Queen. After their

tween six stations set up in tents:
Storytelling, Puppets, Jeopardy,
Pictionary, Camp Songs, and a
Scavenger Hunt. This was the sec-
ond year that the Pinetta Elementary

The 4-H Saddles and Spurs Club held a horse clinic on Sun-
day, April 15. Jake Bentley, a horse trainer from Cherry Lake,
graciously gavehis time to come to Diane Riley's home on Sun-
day, and teach the club members ways to control their animal.
With Sunday morning being so windy, the girls and boys
worked the first half of the day unmounted. Lessons were taught
on verbal commands, leading the horse, and horse knowledge.
Lunch was served at noon, after being prepared by Club
Leader Kathy Floyd, and participants' mothers.
The second half of the day found the, Saddles and Spurs
Club members mounted, riding, and having lots of fun. The day
consisted of walking, trotting, and cantering around the arena, as
well as walking obstacle courses.
Bentley gave good instructions on how to get a horse to stop
if it's being led around or ridden. He also taught how. to give
firm verbal commands. He explained that a horse weighs over
one thousand pounds, and, a rider doesn't ever want that weight
bearing down on them.
At the end of the day, each club member walked away with
some extra knowledge. Plans are already underway for next
month's trail ride.

By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Area Supervisor Elijah Terrell heads Madi-
son's branch of Florida Division of Forestry.
He, along with Senior Forest. Ranger Shane
Wells, Rangers Tanner Greene, Leonard
"Butch" Galbraith, Troy Westerman, Raymond
Stephens, and Bobby Ray Boothe have dedicat-
ed their careers to fighting fires in Madison and
the surrounding areas.
Wildfires are a serious thing, especially in
densely wooded areas such as Madison County.
Sometimes fires are a result of arson, other
times, fires of great magnitude are the result of
accidents or prescribed burning gone awry.
The Division of Forestry offers a few pre-
ventative measures that one can take to make
their homes more fire safe. A buffer zone, at
least 30 feetwide should be cleared around the
home, so that it makes the home more defensi-
ble against wildfires. Metal roofs are less sus-
ceptible to fires than wood or shingles, and can
be protected a little easier, so when building a
new home, or remodeling an older one, opt for


metal roofing.
In addition to buffer zones and roofs, the
Division of Forestry suggests planting shrubs
and trees that are more flame retardant than
others. Native Azaleas, Dogwood, Eastern
Redbud, Southern Magnolia, Crepe NM nrtle.
Oleander, and Mondo Grass are all alternatives
to highly flammable plants and trees such as
Saw Palmetto', Wax Myrtles, and Pampas
Grasses. Flammable plants are characterized
by narrow leaves or needles (evergreen i. \\ axy
or fuzzy leaves, the expulsion of an aroma
when leaves are crushed, loose, paper,, or thick
bark, and lots of twiggy matter accumulating
on the ground underneath.
Smokey Bear has long been an icon for
forest fire prevention- and Madison's Di\ vision
of Forestry still use Smokey to educate school
aged children about the danger of fires. In ad-
dition to Smokey, the DOF has a fire prtven-
tion trailer with brochures and educational
videos. Smokey and the trailer will be making
appearances at the upcoming 4-Freedoms Fes-
tival, at the end of April.

For most people, the purchase of a vehicle is concluded once they leave
a dealership behind the wheel of a vehicle, after signing documents promis-
ing to pay for the vehicle for the next 36, 48, 60 or even 72 months. Few con-
sumers would expect that the process of buying a motor vehicle would in-
clude a Bailment Agreement; a clause including the words, 'Conditional
Sale,' and language to the effect that the sale was 'conditioned' upon the deal-
ership locating a financing source for the transaction. Further, it is most like-
ly that few consumers are familiar with the terms 'spot delivery' or 'yo-yo'
sales, either.
However, in today's fast-paced and competitive economy, since most of
the purchases of an automobile are financed through a credit transaction, most
of those sales are financed by entities other than the dealership where the ve-
hicles are purchased. Furthermore, many of the Retail Installment Sales Con-
tracts, called RISCs in the industry, contain language that makes the sale
'conditioned' upon financing being obtained in the future. For those with ex-
cellent or above average credit histories, the 'conditional' aspects of the sale
rarely appear in the contract, and rarely, if ever, pose a problem.. It is for those
with poor credit and those with lower incorfies that problems can, and often
do, arise. .
Take the case of S. T. of Madison County, who purchased a vehicle at a
tent sale, only to find out days later that her monthly payments were not the
$283.57 she had contracted for, but were $351.00 per month instead. She was
threatened with having the vehicle repossessed if the $351.00 payments were
not made. She was told that the financial institution required the higher pay-
ment and that she was contractually obligated to continue to make that high-
er payment for, the next five years! If she allowed the dealership to repossess
the car, she feared that she could be faced with a lawsuit for moneys due as a
result of the alleged breach of contract if the car sold for less than what was
owed on it.
Not knowing what else she could do, S. T. made the $351.00 payments,
though it dug deeply into the income she made from working as a retail clerk,
and she sought legal advice and counsel from the staff at the Three Rivers Le-
gal Services office in Lake City.
S.T. was told that 'spot deliveries' are common in the industry. A 'spot
delivery' occurs when the buyer takes delivery of a car 'on the spot,' subject
to some contingencies. Dealers, not wishing to lose the benefit of the sale,
sometimes structure the deal as being 'contingent' on the credit information
confirming the buyer's eligibility for the extension of credit. In such situa-
tions, buyers are generally required to sign a 'Bailment Agreement' which es-
sentially says that if financing is not obtained, the consumer/buyer has no
obligation to purchase the vehicle and instead must pay twenty cents for each
mile driven during the bailment agreement.
S.T. had no idea that she had ever signed a bailment agreement. She was
positive that she had made it as clear as Ipossible that she would pay no more
than $284.00 per month as, that was all that her budget would allow. The
packet of documents in her possession did not include a copy of a bailment
agreement. .
A bailment agreement means that the bailor, or in this case the dealer-
ship, allows the customer,,called the bailee, to use the vehicle for a temporary
and limited purpose, but title to the vehicle remains with the bailor.
The staff at Three Rivers Legal Services told S.T. that attorneys repre-
senting consumers all across the country had been investigating and attacking
a practice known as 'yo-yo' sales for several years. A 'yo-yo' sale is one inr


which the buyer is used like a yo-yo and a dealer is the one holding the
strings.
S.T. was told that the classic yo-yo sale occurs after a buyer leaves the
dealership in the chosen vehicle, usually not knowing that he or she had
signed a 'conditional sale/purchase agreement, and usually not understanding
the terms of the bailment agreement. The buyer usually receives a phone call
several days later in which he or she is told that the financing fell through and
the buyer had to return the vehicle immediately. Once the vehicle was re-
turned, the buyer either had to agree to a higher price, and higher payments,
or else find another vehicle.
Oftentimes, consumers are told that the vehicles Used as trade-ins were
sold, so the consumer had no choice but to agree to the higher price and the"
higher payments. It seemed as if S.T. had been the victim of such a scam. A
letter was immediately written to the dealership from which S.T. had pur-
chased her vehicle and an explanation was demanded.
Fortunately for her, the vehicle had been purchased from a dealership
that was willing to listen and respond. In his response, the owner agreed to
meet with S.T. and her attorney, to listen to her complaint, and try to straight-
en out the situation. He said that he wanted to avoid having an unhappy cus-
tomer at all costs since' an unhappy customer would never return to his deal-
ership again and that customer would never recommend the dealership to any
of his or her friends, either.
After meeting with S.T. and her representative from Three Rivers Legal
Services, it was determined that mistake had, indeed, been.made. The expla-
nation given was that in.preparing the paper work on her vehicle, it became
mixed in with the paperwork from the sale of the exact same make and mod-
el vehicle as hers. He took S.T.'s vehicle back and put her in another vehicle
of a higher quality, at payments of $284.00 per month. She was very pleased
with the result, as was the owner, who turned an unhappy customer into a
probable customer for life.
Not all consumers are as fortunate as S.T. was. Consumers are always
cautioned to read all documents closely and ask questions when something is
unclear. All persons buying vehicles must understand the terms of a contract
before signing the contract. In transactions involving the sale of motor vehi-
cles is involved, consumers must know the meaning of the terms 'spot deliv-
ery,' bailment agreement, conditional sales and yo-yo sales. Consumers know
their legal rights and responsibilities. The phrase "Let the buyer beware" is an
axiom of business practice in the United States.
The lesson to be learned from S.T.'s story, if you will, is to avoid condi-
tional sales agreements altogether. If a dealer tells you that a sale is contin-
gent upon financing, you would be well-advised not accept the vehicle until
financing is approved, so that the sale is NOT conditional. As difficult as it
may be to walk away from a deal for a car you really want or need, unless you
are willing to undergo the possibility of having to bring the vehicle back or
pay a higher amount, you should strongly consider simply walking away from
the deal until the terms of the deal are clear and unequivocal. The decision, of
course, is yours, provided you fully understand the risks and benefits.
The Three Rivers Legal Services program serves a seventeen county
area in North Florida from its offices- in Gainesville, Lake City and Jack-
sonville. It is funded; in part, by moneys from the Legal Services Corpora-
tion as well as from donations from private citizens and various civic and
community organizations. It provides free legal assistance to income-eligible
individuals, or other qualified individuals, in civil matters.
