On August 1, at the Solid Waste and Recycling barn, Jerome Wyche, along with county employees, County
Commissioners, representatives from Madison Correctional Institution, the Mayor of Lee, and as other local digni-
taries, a ribbon cutting was held to welcome the new addition. Big Blue, as the machine was called, is a wonder-
ful addition to the community.
Madison County Solid Waste And Recycling
Department Holds Ribbon Cutting
"Help Keep Madison County Cl/an."
By Jerome Wyche
Edited By Jessica Higginbotham,
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison County Solid Waste and Recycling De-
partment is managing to keep stride with the waves of
technology in our increasing service oriented society
For the past seven or more years, the: department had
dreamed of purchasing a baling machine that would
enhance the capability of processing recyclable mate-
rials claimed from around Madison County.
The dream continued as just that, a dream, until in-
terest was rekindled during the latter portion of 2006,
as it became evident that citizens were beginning to re-
cycle more materials. Madison County is experiencing
a growth spurt in population as well as businesses,
which accounts for a percentage of the increase in ma-
terial collection. The greater increases are attributed
to a positive response in citizen's interest and educa-
tion, thus, more people are aware of the need to recycle
and are pitching in.
The department had been operating with two up-
right balers to bale" corrugate (cardboard), and assort-
ed plastics. Although the upright machines have per-
formed remarkably, the process of baling the materials
was best described as "at a snail's pace." Collection of
corrugate, newspapers, office papers, assorted glass
bottles, aluminum and steel cans continued to accumu-
late at the collection centers as well as the recycling
The inability to process and package the recyclable
materials in a timely manner required the positioning
of large containers on the center floor to store materi-
als until enough was collected to market. The need for
floor space became critical and there were moments
when only a single aisle for employee and visitor move

ov. Crist Making Big Changes For Florida Power
By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Due to growing concerns about climate
change and pollution, Governor Charlie Crist
has pulled the plug on now two coal-fired pow-
er plants in Florida.
Just last month, the Public Service Com-
mission vetoed a proposed 960-megawatt plant
near the Everglades National Park. Environ-
mental organizations protested not only the
proposed site of the plant, but also the plant it-
Now, planning for the Taylor Energy Cen-
ter has been suspended, and according to
spokesperson. Mark McCain, "climate change
is becoming a major issue in Florida."
The Taylor Energy Center, located in near-
by Perry, would not have used the coal gasifi-
cation process, and likely pumped copious
amounts of pollutants into the atmosphere.
Crist has pulled
the plug on now

Throughout the planning for the plant,
McCain was vehement that the technology

Seminole Electric plant in Putnam County
Tri-County Electric Cooperative, primary
power giver to the Madison area, purchases
their power from Seminole. The question has
been raised "What does this do to electricity
bills in Madison?"
There is the chance that with anti-coal
leaders sticking to their guns, the price for en-
ergy could increase dramatically.
According to a statement issued by Tri-
County Electric Co-op, [they] work closely

S JacOb's Ladde Letters to the Editor are typed word for word,
Jacob Bembry comma for comma, as sent to this newspaper.
olumnii Arizona Letter,
I don't know how mapy of my readers, aside from
my immediate family, know this, but I was a theater mi-
nor in college. I had taken a couple of electives in Reli-
gion but growing disgusted at the humanistic point of
view of the course's professors, I decided to change my
minor, although I had an "A" average.
I figured that since my major was Media Perfor-
mance (which was a fancy way to, say "Broadcasting"
and another way to say, "Hey, we'll teach you to read out
loud") and since I had to take theater courses anyway
for the major, I might as well take a few other classes and
make it my minor.
While at Florida State, I never participated in any
plays (th6se people were too weird to hang around with
for very long), but I did have extensive experience as a,
thespian. Elementary school plays are long forgotten
but I will never forget my first "big break" in the movie
A made-for-television movie called With All Deliber-
ate Speed was being-filmed in Monticello and I was one
of a couple. dozen sixth graders at Howard Middle
School picked out of a crowd to be an extra for the
movie, which starred Paul Winfield (from the movie
Sounder and, later on; the A&E television show City
Confidential). I had to stand at a bus stop with a girl and
get on a bus, while another girl,,from Leon High School,
yelled racial slurs out of a bus window at a couple of
other children. The movie came on that summer. Imag-
ine my thrill when I.was shown in the opening scene of
the movie. Now, imagine my disappointment. The scene
only lasted about a second or two. That was it. My
dreams of stardom vanished. My friends, Curtis Crumi-
ty and Voncile Conner, had some awesome roles in the
movie. Voncile even got to drown in one of the scenes.
Around the same time I had a good role in a Christ-
mas play at church. The pastor's wife glued a beard on
me and I looked a lot like Abraham Lincoln. It was cool
until I had to try to get the glue and whiskers off my face
Other roles I've had include two plays at North Florir
da Junior College, playing a bully named Plotsky in
Ducktails and Bobbysox and the prime role of rock, tree
and cloud in South Pacific. The only roles I played at
FSU were in classes. In one, I got to play a drunk and in
the other, I got to play the extramarital love interest of
"The Good Wife."
While playing pretend was fun, I do see a lot of it
these days that isn't funny I see people pretending to be
role models for our youth. I see people claiming to know
more about things than they actually do. I see people
who claim to be Christians when their lives don't bear
any fruit. It's dangerous to play pretend. It can harm
yourself and others who may fall into your trap.
God wants honesty in our personal and in our pro-
fessional lives and, as a Christian, I have to live by His
desires not the desires of the world.
To The Editor
Luke AFB is west of Phoenix anid is rapidly being siu-
rouided by civilization that complains about the noise
from the base and its planes, forgetting that it was there
long before they were.
A certain lieutenant colonel at Luke AFB deserves a
big pat on the back. Apparently, ah individual who lives
somniwh're near Luke AFB wrote the local paper! com-
plaining about a group of F-16s that disturbed his her
day at the mall. When that individual read the response
from a Luke AFB officer, I hope it stung quite a bit.
"Question of the day for Luke Air Force Base: Whom
do we thank for the morning air show? Last Wednesday,
at precisely 9:11 a.m., a tight formation of four F-16 jets
made a low pass over Arrowhead Mall, continuing west
over Bell Road at approximately 500 feet. Imagine our
good fortune! Do the Tom Cruise-wannabes feel we need
this wake-up call, or were they trying to impress the
cashiers at Mervyns early bird special? Any response
would be appreciated."
Regarding "A wake-up call from Luke's jets"'(Letters,
Thursday): On June 15, at precisely 9:12 a.m., a perfectly
timed four-ship flyby of F-16s from the 63rd Fighter
Squadron at Luke Air Force Base flew over the grave of
Capt. Jeremy Fresques.
Capt. Fresques was an Air Force officer who was
previously stationed at Luke Air Force Base and was
killed in Iraq on May 30, Memorial Day. At 9 a.m. on
June 15, his family and friends gathered at. Sunland
Memorial Park in Sun City to mourn the loss of a hus-
band, son and friend.
Based on the letter writer's recount of the flyby, and
because of the jet noise, I'm sure you didn't hear the 21-
gun salute, the playing of taps, or my words to the wid-
ow and parents of Capt. Fresques as I gave them their
son's flag on behalf of the President of the United States
and all those veterans and servicemen and women who
understand the sacrifices they have endured.
, Afour-ship flyby is a display of respect the Air Force
pays to those-who give their lives in defense of freedom
We are professional aviators and take our jobs seri-
ously, and on June 15 what the letter writer witnessed
was four officers lining up to pay their ultimate re-
The letter writer asks, "Whom do we thank for the
morning air-show?" The 56th Fighter Wing will call for

of Capt. Fresques, and thank them for you, for it was in
their honor that my pilots flew the most honorable for-
mation of their lives.

De-Stress As A Back To
This may come as a surprise to some of you, but here goes
anyway. The biggest concern of school children is not grades.
What?? Our children are not focused on grades? No, not re-
alh. For the majorityiof our little darlings,.the main concern is
societal. The heaviest question does not center on Shakespeare
or exoskeletons; it is"'do they like me?"
Parents can't change that. Children are egocentric creatures,
and society feeds into that. What parents can do is prepare the
child to get along in society, this increasing the "like" factor:
' One excellent teaching tool is the fariily dinner'"Four or five
times a week, everyone should gather around the table to share
a meal. During the meal, each member contributes to polite con-
versationii. No shouting, insults, name-calling, tattling, or belit-
tling. Those practice sessions help the child later when he's
away from home and put in a conversation situation. He'll be
able to participate instead of being a wall-flower.
Another step parents can take is to get help. No, I don't
mean a therapist. Instead, we can take our children to Sunday
school, church, youth group, and Bible school. These offer prac-
tice in urn-iaking. appropriate behavior, give-and-take, and oth-
er skills important to societal success.
SThese lessons and more may also be learned through scouts,
Little League. volunteering, and such activities. Opportunities
abound in everN community.
Parents can also spend some time teaching table manners
and other courteous behavior. The group will "'like" a child more
readily if he seems somewhat domesticated instead of barbarian.
In the flurry of back-to-school shopping, haircuts, new
shoes, and other preparations, the student seems to have a firm
opinion about the whole process. Yet inside, he harbors that ner-
vous question: "will they like me?"
If the parent has helped guide him in steps that lead to a pos-
itive answer to that consuming question, then maybe, just
maybe, the student can turn his attention to a different topic.

Plan Your Spending
For Tax Free Week
Tax-free week starts this weekend. Designed to help
ease Florida consumer's wallets with back- to- school ex-
penses, you won't save money in the long run if you
don't have a plan. Many families spend far more than
they intend and if you don't plan your purchases and
watch for bargains, you can overspend and not have
enough money for regular monthly bills have to pay. Be-
fore you hit the stores, consider putting pencil to paper
and develop a spending plan.
Clothing is considered a flexible expense; meaning it
can vary from month to month and it is probably the
biggest back-to-school expenditure. First, find out what
clothing is needed for each child. Start by taking an in-
ventory of the child's closet to determine what can be
used. You may only need to buy a few basic items to co-
ordinate with clothes the child is currently wearing.
Since school age children experience sporadic growth
spurts, you may want to start the new school year with
a few clothes and add larger sizes in as they get taller.
The weather is so warm for the first few months of the
school year that their current summer clothing may do
fine until the weather cools off.
Older children and teenagers can do inventory of
their clothing by themselves. Make a shopping list for
new purchases that are needed to fill the wardrobe gaps
and plan shopping trips to take advantage of sales. Be
sure to take advantage of the sales many retailers offer;
check newspaper and TV advertisements to find the best
If your school requires uniforms, consider the ba-
sics. A couple pairs of pants or shorts, with several dif-
ferent shirts to interchange during the week, might be
enough for the first month or so. It may mean you have
to wash clothes several times a week to keep the rotation
School supplies are another big expenditure for
back-to-school preparation. If you can obtain a list of
supplies needed and can take advantage of sales, you
will be able to save as much as 20 40%. If you can af-
ford the extra expense, anticipating the child's needs for
supplies throughout the year, and buying them now, can
pave money.only if you have the storage space.
If your monthly budget is tight. just pace yourself
and buy what you can afford to get the school year start-
ed. Build clothing and school supplies into the next few
months and live within your income. Each family needs
to prepare for back-to-school according to your income
and other monthly expenses.

Tri-County and SECI are both adamant that "the use
of cdal to produce electricity, and the protect of the en-
vironment, are not incompatible goals." According to
SECI, they recycle nearly 75 percent of the by-products
of coal combustion and have adequate emission con-
trols. This still begs the questions: where does the other
25 percent, the unusable part, go?. Why are coal-fired
power plants still a leading cause of global pollution?
SECI maintains that "numerous studies have deter-
mined that reducing or eliminating coal fueled [power
plants] will destroy the lives or quality of life of mil-
lions of working families and citizens on fixed incomes,
including many Floridians. ...A 15 percent reduction in
our supply of affordable energy will impact poorest fam-
ilies the hardest... and any option to domestic coal is
more expensive pre kilowatt hour."
Tri-County states that they are committed to renew-
able energy and environmental stewardship. Tri-Coun-
ty believes that, "clean coal is, important to ensuring a
reliable, affordable energy supply."
Environmentalists agree that coal has never been
and certainly never will be "clean."
Barry Parsons, local environmental activist, has
said, "The future will see decommissioning of coal
plants." If that happens, citizens are looking at cleaner,
renewable sources of energy that are more cost effi-
cient, and not threatened by "big storms in the Gulf or

Red Devils Brought A Flood Of Memories
A photo of the old Madison High School (and the Red
Devils) in last week's paper brought a flood of memories
(mostly good) to mind. Our two years ('35 and '36) there
were quite pleasant although we didn't care much for
math and sometimes had trouble keeping awake in
geometry class. Not your fault though Ms. Sims! You
were a great teacher! But we loved Latin and enjoyed
Ms. Wadsworth's class very much. We liked all our
teachers, especially the principal, Mr. Jones most of
the girls had a teenagers' crush on him! Remember the
"bowl" in back of the school we had no cafeterias in
schools then, so we took our lunches from home and the
bowl (which was just a huge natural basin) was our
lunchroom, where we experienced sampling each others
sandwiches. Most of them had "light bread" bases for
theirs but we country girls had biscuits. Our lunch usu-
ally consisted of an egg biscuit, fried potato biscuit and
one with butter and, sugar. The other girls loved my
fried potato biscuits so much that their sampling didn't
leave much so Mother started putting in two. After that
we could swap our extra one for our choices of several
offered. We especially liked Ruby McCullough's (Ulm)
home made peanut butter one. Ah, those were the days!
Good old golden rule days!
We have many congratulations to offer this week be-
ginning'with Emerald and her business acumen we

ie Holcomb and Margie Phillips for their outstanding ac-

We were pleasantly surprised to receive a visit last
Wednesday from our Postmistress, Mary Sanderfeit and
her husband, T.J., who is the new pastor at Beulah Bap-
tist Church. He seems to be a "people person" like Mary,
so we foresee good things in Beulah's future.

too highly -they go far beyond the call of duty in servidd

badly broken up in a one-car accident about two weeks
ago. After spending a few days in South Georgia Med-
ical Center, he was sent to Madison Nursing Center for
rehabilitation. This will probably be a very long and
painful process he has two broken legs, a broken collar
bone and one foot was practically mangled. Since Carl-
ton was once a part of our family, we feel the same sym-
pathy as if he still were.
We leave you now with this thought if you aren't

much more time to enjoy the scenery that way.

prosecuted for committing a sex crime.
These new laws are aimed to keep low risk offenders
- such as the previously mentioned 19-year-old from
being treated like a sexual predator. Most often, rela-
tionships between an older and younger partner are re-
ported to authorities by the younger partners unhappy
In Florida, the current law states that a person no
more than 24 years of age may enter into sexual activity
with someone at least 16 years of age.
The laws are intended to keep people who don't de-
serve it out of prison time and a lifetime inclusion on a
sexual offender registry...
Sharon Shadrick, Investigator for Madison County
Sheriff's Department, stated that the Romeo Law
"might be to the advantage of romances." State law
should consider the circumstances when prosecuting
cases of that nature. "I was a School Resource Officer
for 15 years, and I know when girls [specifically] get past
a certain age, they're interested in older males."
The Romeo Law could prove to be very ,beneficial to
Madison residents because of the rural area and low
population. There aren't as many fish to choose from in

Another law taking effect in Florida includes sex of-
fenders being required to have registry numbers printed

When people present identification when entering an
amusement park or school, they'd be recognized. The
school system especially must enforce safety"
The Florida legislature is also trying to pass a law
that would require that a juvenile's sexual offense

ual offense would carry onto their permanent adult

Community Service Provides A Valuable
Ask The Resource To The Community
If I am involved in a traffic crash, should I
lea ve the vehicle in place or move it?
Over the years, many of us have been taught not to
move a vehicle until police arrive. That may have been
the conventional advice of the time, however, that is no
longer good advice. With the character and congestion of
traffic today, it is much more dangerous to leave a vehi-
cle in the roadway often creating a hazard. In fact, Flori-
da Statute 316.061 (2) states in part: "if a damaged vehi-
cle is obstructing traffic, the driver of such vehicle must
make every reasonable effort to move the vehicle or have
it moved so as not to block the regular flow of traffic.
Any person failing to comply with this subsection could
receive a traffic citation."

Madison County, an offender may work for the Cities
of Greenville, Madison or Lee, Consolidated Christian
Ministries, the Suwannee River Regional Library, the
Madison County Recycling Center, the Madison Coun-
ty Senior Citizen's Center, the Madison Fire Depart-
ment, or even the Suwannee Valley Humane Society
Community service addresses the sentencing
goals of punishment, without incarceration. Accord-
ing to the U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services, com-
munity service adds a punitive measure to probation.
While performing community service, an offender's
personal time is restricted and they must forfeit
Community service also allows offenders to atone
for their actions with reparation. Constructive tasks
give an offender the ability to make their victim whole
Restitution, the financial compensation for indi-
viduals, is regarded as a symbolic compensation dur-
ing community service.
Community service, the U.S. Probation and Pretri-
al Services says, fosters a sense of social responsibili-
ty ip offenders and allows them to repair their self-im-
age though serving the community. Community ser-
vice is rehabilitation.
Community service can be geared towards the in-
dividual or a group of individuals at the corporate lev-
el, first time offenders or repeat offenders, teenagers
or senior citizens, the poor or the wealthy. An offend-
er completing community service must not have a vio-
lent background, a history of sexual offenses or as-
sault, or even a current drug or alcohol addiction. The
offender must be stable, as well as motivated.
During community service, offenders repay their
community for the wrongs they have committed. The
practice is cost-effective, and, oftentimes saves commu-
nities thousands of tax dollars that would otherwise
go to prison costs.
Protecting Your Pocketbook From Healthcare Fraud
From the FBI website at www.fbi.gov:
"A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon
you're talking real money," the late Senator Everett
Dirksen is supposed to have said.
And so it is today with health care fraud, a bur-
geoning crime plague that's adding up in a big way, big-
ticket scheme after big-ticket scheme, essentially cost-
ing you money every time you walk into a hospital or
doctor's office or fill a prescription, whether you know
it or not. The National Health Care Anti-Fraud Associ-
ation estimates that this fraud collectively costs Amer-
icans between $60 billion and $100 billion a year. Ouch.
Our role in combating the problem? We're the pri-
mary investigative agency, with jurisdiction over feder-
al programs like Medicare and Medicaid (both big tar-
gets) and private insurance programs, all the while
working hand-in-hand with plenty of public and pri-
vate sector partners. Locally, our agents team up with
their investigative counterparts on health care fraud
working groups, task forces, and strike teams to tackle
the biggest scams. Nationally, we have a Health Care
Fraud unit at FBI Headquarters that helps, support and
coordinate field investigations and leads field-wide ini-
An anniversary, of sorts. It was 15 years ago, actu-
ally, that we ran our first major health care fraud in-
vestigation-"Operation Gold Pill." It involved about a
thousand "professional patients" getting prescriptions
for medicine they didn't need and having them filled at
Joe Ford, Associate Deputy Director (left), and Sal Her-
nandez, Deputy Assistant Director in our Criminal In-
vestigative Division, at the briefing. Billed Medicare
for much more than the cost. The patients then sold the
medication at a discount to dealers, who turned around
and hawked it on the street or repackaged it and sold it,
back to the pharmacies a full circle of crime.
Fifteen years ago this month, as the investigation'
came to a head, hundreds of FBI agents and other law
enforcement professionals fanned .out across the na-
tion, making more than a 100 arrests and seizing more
than $30 million in cash and assets. By today's stan-
dards, that's pocket change. But soon, more resources
came our way, and we were in the business of busting
healthcare fraud full-time.
A million ways.... Today, the schemes, are more com-
plex, more time-consuming, and more costly than ever.
"There's literally millions of ways to defraud health
care," our Associate Deputy Director Joseph L. Ford
told reporters this week. "They come up with new ways
every day." Just a very few examples of what we see:
Hospitals, doctors, pharmacists, and other care
providers submitting fake bills for services never ren-
Service providers -charging insurance for unnec-
essary' and costly procedures;
Doctors selling prescriptions to patients for cash;
Companies billing insurance for expensive equip-
ment but providing poor substitutes;
Crooked docs enticing patients to visit their of-
fices for "free services" or gifts, then stealing their per-
sonal information and using it to file fake claims.
Your role. As with any white-collar fraud, we de-
pend on alert and conscientious citizens for help. We
encourage you to contact the FBI if you come across
any suspected abuse either on the job or in your own
personal lives. Please do yourself a favor and keep an
eye on your explanation of benefits to make sure you're
not getting billed for services or items you never re-
ceived. And please safeguard your insurance card and
your patient information-just like you would a credit
card. It's fodder for identity thieves, as well.
Hedge Funds Admit To $194 Million Scam:

How To Treat "A PATIENT"
Choosing A Physical Therapy Clinic
Having an excellent
staff is essential to the suc-
cess of treatment for any
patient. Everyone has been
"a patient" at one time in
their lives. So ask yourself,
as a patient, what did you
want or need most of all?,
Someone to listen...to un-
derstand... show compas-
sion for... treatment for
you as an individual.
These are some of the
things I look for. as a pa-
tient. The front desk staff
is the first impression of
any practice and being
greeted with a smiling
friendly gesture is a sure
win; especially when
you're not feeling your
best! Continued care of be-

choosing your practice
shows loyalty to yourself

Quality of Care is to-
day's catch phrase, but
what does it mean? Quality
of Care is defined as a ca-
pacity to achieve goals.
Your next question should
be who chooses these goals
and how are goals chosen?
Because patient values are
what shapes goals and
these gpals are not always
assessed, are you receiving
"Quality of Care?" Imple-
menting your own goals of
treatment as a patient is a
critical step to a successful
recovery, especially when
