Principal Quells Fears About Staph Infection At High School

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing. Inc.
Madison County High School Princi-
pal Ben Killingsworth said that he be-
lieves the school has a handle on rtunored
staph infection outbreaks at the school.
Killingsworth confirmed that earlier
in the year there was a student at the
school who was believed to have staph in-
fection. Because of the student's illness,
efforts to clean the school have intensi-
fied. Killingsworth said that a part of the
school would also be fogged with a spray
to kill anything that might cause the in-
"We're always trying to stay one step

ahead." Killingsworth noted. "We're try-
ing to treat it."
Killingsworth said that hand sanitiz-
ers have been placed all around the
school. He noted that if students don't
bathe or wash their hands, they are al-
ways more susceptible to infections and
Killingsworth said that the areas the
school is most concerned with are in lock-
er room situations where athletic teams
are gathered.
"They're sweating and there's a big
group of them together," he said, noting
that the infection could become easier to

State Drops Public Assistance Fraud Charge Against Woman

By Lazaro Aleman
Special From
The Monticello News ,
Lack of evidence recently
caused the state to drop a pu-.
bic assistance fraud charge
against Debra Green Brooks,
a Greenville woman who was
employed as a public assis-
tance worker in Monticello
for the Department of Chil-
dren and Families (DC F),
"Whereas probable cause
existed at the time of the ar-
rest, upon further review
there is insufficient evidence
to prove the element of pub-
lic assistance fraud beyond
reasonable doubt," State At-
torney Willie Meggs wrote
October 31 in the prosecu-

tion's application for nolle
prosequi, a Latin legal phrase
meaning "unwillingness to

follow through," or more sim-
ply, "unwillingness to pur-
sue." The charge stemmed
from a complaint filed July

A Lot To Be Thankful For

Therapist Summer Croft; rehab tech Racheal Gee;
and Jennifer Acerra, physical therapy assistants, pic-
tured back row, left to right, surround Bobby Bembry,
who underwent therapy at Madison Nursing Center.
I have a lot to be thankful for in my life. I see so many
people who are not as fortunate as I am and it makes me
take time to be thankful..
Thanksgiving is not an easy season for me. As some
of you know, my mother had a massive stroke sitting
down to eat Thanksgiving dinner in 1998. She died in
January 1999 from complications caused by the stroke.
I have not had it easy this year. My father fell and
broke his hip, on October 5. He spent the rest of the
month of October in the VA Hospital in Gainesville and
doing therapy in the Madison Nursing Center. He final-
ly got dut on November 6. He has been improving and
I'm very happy to see that.
I was afraid to put my father in the nursing home for
therapy My family's experience with my mother in the
nursing home she was in was not a pleasant one. It was
very noisy in there and my heart still breaks as I think
of when my mother first-got there and howisca.ed ishe ,,
was. Add to that. the cold indifference from some of the
staff who had the attitude that, since they'were-not be-
ing paid much, they were not going to do much work. I'm
sorry, but if you agree to do a.job at a certain rate when
you are hired, then you-should do that job to the best of
your ability, especially when people's lives are con-
cerned. Raises should be based on how well a person,
does his or her job.
The fear that I felt for my father was soothed soon af-
ter Daddy arrived at the nursing home. The staff helped
out tremendously and made him feel right at home. I am
thankful for them and would like to express my thanks,
especially to his therapy staff, Summer Croft, Jennifer
Accerra and the whole therapy staff, and also to Jean
Carroll, Mattie Hackle, Marty Giacomazzi, Peggy Pow-
ers, Jane Davis, Karen Kocan, Eula Mitchell, Donna Go-
bar and Terrie Bearden. I know that I am probably miss-
ing a dozen other names but I would like to extend heart-
felt thanks to them.
God has been good.and has blessed'my family I es-
pecially thank him for the care that my father has been

Family Violence Among Police
Officers Should Be Addressed
Dear Editor,
After reading this letter it will be obvious why I can-
not put my name to this letter. I am well aware of what
law enforcement officers face each day, being cursed,
spit upon, and worst such as being battered, shot at and
killed. I know all law enforcement officers, go through
anger classes to be able' to handle these extreme situa-
tionsof stress. However, I feel these classes fall short as
family violence among their on families is on the rise.
The verbal abuse that these officers take out on mem-
bers of their families who love them the most needs to
be addressed.
Out of control at home is out of order.

Keeping Up With Trad.to.s
Thanksgiving is an important time in which we have
a few traditions. We start on Wednesday evening by mak-
ing all of our own pies; that is my mom, my sister-in-law,
Twanna and myself.
We make chocolate, pumpkin, sweet potato, apple,
pecan, and then some. Thursday morning early, the men
and boys leave for their hunting excursion and the
women begin making bread dressing (my mom's is the
best and I still can't get it right). We stuff the bird and get
it ready and in the oven. When the hunters return it's
brunch time, which usually includes my mom's, famous
stuffed mushrooms
Then, at a set time, between the early morning and
early afternoon hunts,, we serve 20 or more guests a
turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Shortly after that,
there's the backyard football game with all able children
and adults participating. This usually lasts until one of
the over age 40 players is injured or crippled. Then, the
men and boys head out for their afternoon hunt while the
women play some cards. Upon their return it's time for
all those desserts to be consumed.
Friday, of course is the big Christmas shopping day.
Usually on the next weekend the tree gets decorated for
Christmas. In New York we used to go out trudging
through the snow, with the children in tow. We would
pick out and cut down our own Christmas tree (oh, how
I miss doing that).
On Christmas .Eve, we always get together for a
lasagna dinner, a few drinks, and open one present each.
But now, we let the grands open all their gifts from us,
while taking lots of pictures,'then they can Wake up and
spend Christmas morning at home with their parents to'
open all their gifts from "Santa." Before they leave, the.
youngest child puts Jesus in the manger. Then on Christ,-
mas Day, it's cinnamon buns and more for brunch.
Christmas dinner, is usually roast beef or ham, or both,'
along with all the trimmings, Christmas cookies, cheese-'
cake, and pineapple upside down cake for dessert. Al-
though we try to discourage it. but sometimes the men.
and boys get another afternoon hunt in. Then we let the
'children get their stockings full of more goodies and
presents. They look for the pickle ornament on the
Christmas tree. The lucky winner gets an extra gift (usu-
ally a game or something they all can play with togeth--.
per). Then it's dessert time again when the guys get home.
New Year's Eve we have yet another get-together.
and enjoy finger foods, and sitting around 'the firelit.
outside cooking oysters in the shell. The kids cook
s'mores and marshmallows. We have a few drinks, then
some dancing and karaoke until midnight. Later, we
bring in the New Year with a fireworks display New
Year's Day is just a lazy day unless we decide to cook a
venison roast or stew for dinner guests.
We always try to remember to wear green for St.
Patrick's day, so we don't get pinched. Then sometimes I
cook corned beef and cabbage for dinner (if it's not a
Tuesday or Thursday, my work nights).
For Easter, we usually have an.Easter egg hunt out in
the yard for all the young children. We take lots of pic-
tures. Cinnamon buns, boiled eggs and more for break-
fast. Then another family dinner, ham and all the fixings,
Twanna's coconut cake, cheesecake, and pineapple up-
side down cake. At last no hunting; the season is over.
Fourth of July is another great time to get together
for a cookout, some games, and shoot off some fireworks
or find a local display to go and enjoy them
All birthdays- and anniversaries are also reasons to
get together with family and celebrate. We gather either
at home with special dinners or cookouts, or we go to a
favorite restaurant to enjoy quiet dinners. For the grand-
kids parties, we go all out with guests, decorations, food,
cake and ice cream, gifts, games, pictures and a whole lot
of party fun. I only paid for my oldest son's first birthday
SFrom then on, I learned the art of cake decorating
and made several birthday, wedding, and, special occa-
sion cakes for my children and lots of other family mem-
bers, friends, and co-workers for years until recently, as
my pre-carpal tunnel syndrome makes it too difficult to
do it so much now. My son Thomas has agreed to help by
taking over with my cake decorating jobs, as I instruct
him what to do.
Just about every third to fifth summer we like to get
a family reunion planned for guests from near and far.
This of course includes food, games, fun, fellowship, a.
time to catch up or reminisce, meet new members, wel-
come new babies, and take lots of pictures. Always a
good time!
All of these traditional dinners and get together
please my heart, as FAMILY is very important to me. I
plan to keep celebrating and carrying on with these tra-
ditions with all four of my grandchildren the same way
we have throughout my life for many years to come and
hope to teach my boys and their wives how to continue
these family traditions after we're gone.
If you have family traditions, keep them going. If you
don't have any, then start some new ones. Keep the fami-
ly together. We've planned on starting a new one with our
grandchildren. We plan to take one week a year and set it
aside to take them, no parents (they need a break any-
way), and go places like amusement-theme parks, camp-
ing or fishing trips, road trips to the mountains or ocean
and gulf beaches, New York State trips, train rides, boat
rides, and anything else that comes to mind. We will plan
them the same time every year so that they have some-
thing to look forward to. It may be fun, we might be
crazy; but it's worth a try
See you next week!!
We hope you all have "A Happy Traditional Thanks-

Plan Now To Avoid That

Holiday Weight Gain
One tradition Americans have we celebrate most oc-
casions with food. Now, we are about to start the holiday
stretch starting with Thanksgiving and ending with
New Year's Day. In short, we are looking at six weeks of
eating more than you normally consume.
A traditional holiday meal can supply upward to 3,000
calories. That is more calories from a single meal than
most people eat in an entire day In addition to holiday
meals, there are always baked goods and desserts at
every gathering.
It is possible to eat some of everything during the hol-
idays and not take in too many calories. The key is to eat
sensibly, be physically active and reduce calories when-
ever possible; realizing that some of the foods we eat
during the holidays will be high in calories.
Here are a few ideas from Extension Specialists to
help you avoid consuming excessive calories over the
holiday season.
Eat moderate portions of food. Keep extra servings
to a minimum.
Leave butter and sugar off the table at mealtime.
Substitute low-calorie alternatives for food high in
fat or sugar. For example, low-fat sour cream can re-
place the traditional high fat version. Reduce the
amount of sugar in your sweet potatoes and add vanilla
extract for added flavor.
Serve a fresh vegetable tray with a low fat dip instead
of potato chips.
Substitute reduced-fat cheeses and cream cheese in
your recipes.
Steam, bake or microwave vegetables rather than fry
and season with herbs and spices.
Replace whole milk and cream with low-fat or skim
milk in puddings, soups and baked products. There is
now fat free half and half on the market and it is hard to
tell the difference in taste.
Lighten up your holiday baked goods by cutting the
amount of sugar by one quarter.
To help reduce cholesterol, substitute egg whites in
recipes calling for whole eggs. Use two egg whites in
place of each whole egg in baked products.
During the holidays, schedule time for physical activ-
ity to help burn off extra calories. Take a 15 minute
walk during your lunch hour. Every step counts, so park
further out in the parking lot when you go to the store.
Household chores and yard work will also burn extra
Sensible eating and staying physically active during
the holiday season will keep your weight in check and
keep the extra pounds off. "Holiday Meals" will be a
food preparation program offered at the Extension Of-
fice on November 13th at 6:00 p.m. Participants will
learn meal preparation strategies to adjust traditional
recipes and add healthier dishes to your holiday tables.
Call the Extension office for more details or to register.

with three intervals of 30 years each, the county voted
on provisions to select an architect and to purchase title
insurance. County Attorney Tom Reeves disclosed that
his firm would be receiving the approximate $4000
charge for the policy A second policy will cover the
Emergency Operations Center.
Jerome Wyche, Madison County Solid Waste Direc-
tor, came before the Commission to announce the bids
for a new Solid Waste Cable Roll-off Hoist System and
Heavy Duty Chassis Vehicle. The low bid was waived
however, because of a trade-in feature oh the next lowest
"The Mack truck we're wanting is a little more, but
when you consider the trade-in allowance, which states
that we can get a new truck next year for only $8500 dol-
lars, and then considering the wear and tear, the de-
mands on our current equipment, and- how that equip-
ment becomes obsolete, this is a much better deal,"
Wyche explained. The Commission agreed, and Reeves
explained the procedures for waiving the lowest bid
when extra value comes from contract options.
There were other points of interest that will be de-
tailed later, including proposals to improve county an-
nual leave accumulation accounting, and re-acquiring
membership in the National Association Of Counties.
Also, look for the upcoming announcement regarding
the Property Surplus sale.
There are many ways to observe the Commission's
commitment to being prepared for the future. Certainly
every Commissioner is anxiously anticipating the ef-
fects of the new state tax changes and the impact it will
have on residents of Madison County But there was
also a consistent indicator at this meeting that we're all
moving forward as a team.
As votes were conducted, Chairman Alfred Martin
announced the final vote count. Each issue, dozens in
total, received a unanimous vote, which Martin quickly
declared as "5-0." Because of the popularity of the
crime drama "Hawaii 5-0," after hearing it several
times, this reporter began to think, of the Commission's
evident team collaboration as deserving the description
"Madison 5-0."

ments regarding the wrap-up of this year's United Way

ty fund drive, urging everyone to do what he or she can

Memories Golden Ray
Today I climbed a darkened stair.
To the attic of the mind
But once that door was opened
The golden light of time
Bathed all in memory bright -
Gems from childhood, tee'n-aged years,
Glowed in that lovely light;
First day of school to cap and gown,
Young love to married bliss;
The time when boys meant more than books,
And the thrill of that first kiss;
The happiness of married years,
The peace of family life,
The joy of children growing up,
Outweighed the toiltand strife
That sometimes managed to creep in -
Sitting cloaked in reverie
As sweet memories returned,
Time had brushed away all pain
And a lesson I had learned -
Cherish all memories for if they're lost
.A part of you is gone -
Life will never again be complete,
Without them you're all alone.

Rev. Quackenbush and wife Ginny have memories of
their summer sabbatical vacation to cherish for they,
with four other couples from all over the country (we are
very remiss in reporting this, Rich!) traveled as far
north as Ohio and Illinois, visiting four of the five great
lakes during their four week sabbatical, two weeks of
which were spent on spiritual retreat for study, reading
and prayer five days in the Amish country of New Bed-
ford, Ohio, and five days in the Olde Bed and Breakfast
of Freeport, Illinois the one where Abraham Lincoln
and Steve Douglas held their famous debate.
Rich was asked to preach in Kentucky, north of
Frankfurt, in a place named Harveyland. One highlight
of their trip was spending one night in Kennesaw, Geor-
gia, with Lorraine Berghuis. She had recently had
cataract surgery Knowing Lorraine, we're sure she was
overjoyed to see them.
Though we are very late reporting the Quackenbush
trip and its old news by now, we feel it's too interesting
to be left out, especially since they were in not only the
"land of Lincoln" but our home state as well. We hope
we got everything right, Rich.
We were sort of "called on the carpet" for not wishing
a happy birthday to someone recently so we'll try to
make amends. We have about stopped this since Jacob
seems never to miss birthdays and anniversaries. We
feel our reporting them also is rather redundant.
Anyway, we hope that Gail Carter had a wonderful
birthday on October 19 and by the way, happy birthday
to Willie Carter whose big day was on September 12.
And while we're on the subject, please wish this couple
a sincere happy anniversary on November 7 when they
will celebrate their 30th year together. Many more and
happy years together is our wish.
And we hope that all you ladies have your turkey on
ice or are you waiting for your husband to go hunting?
Be sure to bake those pumpkin pies, though. Have a
wonderful weekend, everyone!

it more. And if it's good for Mr. Steen, then it's good for
me. He's done such a good job and will be missed, but I
want what's good for him."
Each board member took a moment to share similar
sentiments, concluding with Chairman Maultsby.
Maultsby reflected several minutes about Steen's
achievements, giving Steen credit for the excellent state
of affairs at NFCC. As is typical of effective leadership
.however, Maultsby looked .to the future, outlining the
daunting task of finding a replacement.
One of the legacies Steen will be leaving behind is a
very capable management team and department heads
capable of picking up the torch. The procedures for
choosing a replacement are regulated, and will include
at least three outside candidates selected by a search
committee, to go with select campus candidates. Exact
selection criterion will be determined by the next meet-
Separately, Skip James, Director of Public Safety,
gave a multi-month review of the installation of new se-
curity systems, and the extensive training he and others
have received to effectively operate the program. In the
aftermath of the shootings at Virginia Tech. safety mea-
sures at campuses around the nation are being over-
hauled. NFCC has the benefit of formal police training
by its leadership as well,
The new program includes a five htuidred thousand
dollar "all alert" phone system, a security vehicle, and
official Class D Security ratings for all security staff.
James, along, with Public Safety Coordinator, William
Sircy, has worked tirelessly to deliver the system in an
incredibly short period of time.
There were a few more housekeeping items on the
agenda, including a few comments regarding the great
marks NFCC received during their recent "Equity Re-
view," which is an, outside, top-to-bottom, review that
last occurred twenty years ago. Kudos also went out to
Melissa Burke, the Student. Government Association
representative to the Board. "Burke just won the Miss

A Birthday Celebration For Edith Hudson

A glorious day at Concord Baptist Church, October 14,
2007 was filled with "expressions of love" for Edith "Granny"
Hudson, as she is known by so many It was a "real surprise,"
as Edith's family had told her they were going to the park in
Madison for a picnic after church.
People filled historic Concord Church, where Edith has
been a member for almost all her life. This made the day "spe-
cial" for her She didn't dream that the overflow of so many
was in her honor.
Following the greetings, welcoming, singing and "Chil-
dren's church," former pastor, Jack Sanders, informed the
congregation there would be a special program today Taylor
Hudson, great granddaughter of Granny played "It's a Won-
derful World" on the piano for her beloved Granny After
Taylor's performance, another great-granddaughter, Pazlei
Jenkins, came down to the piano and played "Standing in the,
Need of Prayer".

Granny was beaming with pride with tears in her eyes;
but the surprise wasn't over Jantz Jenkins, great-grandson
of Granny walked to where she sits at her regular place on
Sunday leaned over to hug her and presented her with a rose
bouquet. He gently took her arm, escorted her to the front
pew, and stepped away Granny hadn't notice that the other
great-grandchildren, Sarah Ashley Taylor Hudson, John
Ashley and Wade Hudson, had followed them to the front
also. Each one presented Granny with a rose bouquet, gave
her a "big hug" and spoke a sweet message that only she
could hear, then they returned to their seats.
During the last congregational hymn, Pazlei had slipped
out of the church. Following the hymn, the door at the front
of the sanctuary opened and Pazlei, dressed in a lovely white
ballet gown, gracefully floated in to present a ballet perfor-
mance after giving Granny her rose bouquet and hug. The:
music for the performance was "A Father's and Mother's

Prayer," so fitting for the occasion. Because of impaired vi-
sion, Edith cannot see Pazlei when she performs at the ballet
recital each year Pazlei wanted to do this so Granny would be
close enough to see her dance. The performance, filled with
grace and beauty also held a spiritual quality that left many
of us reaching for tissues. It was a lovely tribute to a lovely
and loved great grandmother The children, grandchildren,
and great-grandchildren are the lights of her life and had
gathered to honor her on this very special day
Former pastor Jack Sanders used his sermon scripture
from Romans 12:9-16. Verse 13 describes Edith so well, "dis-
tributing to the needy of the saints, given to hospitality" She
is always there when the need arises. The first with a pound
cake to a grieving family; calls to those who need assurance;
food to ones who are ill; cheer or sympathy where needed. (I
have said many times, I never leave Edith that I don't feet bet-
ter than when I arrived; her hospitality has touched so
After the message, Wayne, Edith's son, walked to the front
and spoke about his "'Mama" with precious words, humorous
words straight from his heart. Jeannie Page, Edith's daughter,
seated at the piano, added to his tribute to their beloved moth-
er. She told of how her "Mama" would lay across the bed to lis-
ten and often sing along as she practiced on the piano.
Wayne invited the congregation to join the family for a
surprise birthday dinner in the fellowship hall. Until this in-
vitation, Edith thought they were "going to the park." The ta-
bles were lovely covered with white tablecloths, decorated
with autumn leaves surrounding fall candles under hurri-
cane globes. The beautiful birthday cake was centered on a
table decorated with colorful autumn leaves and candles in
crystal candleholders of graduating heights.
Wayne and Jeannie would like to thank everyone who
had a part in making the day so special for "Mama". The
sweet fellowship, visiting with those not seen often and above
all, the love that filled the church service and the dining hall,
was a very special tribute to a wonderful lady
It was a real surprise!

New Lee Library Great Example Of Team Work

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
When the new public library opens in Lee,
tentatively scheduled for Spring 2009, it will
serve as a poster child for teamwork. First, ku-
dos must go to Danny Hales, Director of Li-
braries for the Suwannee River Regional Library .
System, although Hales is quick to spread the
"Starting with Lee Councilwoman Thelma
Thompson, who worked so hard to make the cur-
rent Lee Library a reality, to the promotional
support of Roy Ellis, Madison County Commis-
sioner representing Lee, to the entire Madison
County Commission and School Board; all have
played key roles in this process," Hales ex-
The Florida Secretary of State, through the
State Library of Florida, oversees the grant fund- (
ing for new libraries. Five million dollars is
awarded annually, divided among ten recipients.
"Twenty-eight competitive requests were submit-
ted, and the Lee Library request came in at num-
ber nine. Since only ten received funding, this
was an exceptional success," Hales noted. As the o
Director over Madison, Hamilton and Suwannee
County Libraries, it was Hales' responsibility to
produce, package and submit the request.
"The funding is awarded on a point system.
Part of its scoring is on an objective scale, and

part of it is subjective. The objective element con-
siders established criteria, but the subjective side
requires the grant writer to express their view of
the project," Hales went on to say. <
Now that the award has been declared, there 1

are specific steps that must be followed to pro-
ceed. Items like architect and construction bid-
ding are outlined. Key deadlines are established.
And, as owners of the land, the Madison Coun-
ty School Board must approve the proposed 90-
year lease, which is expected at their upcoming
meeting on November 20. There is, however, one
additional major hurdle that must be carried.
The estimated price tag of the project is
greater than the $500,000 award. The project will
require approximately two hundred thousand ad-
ditional dollars to construct the proposed 5000
square foot facility. So, before finalizing the sub-
mission, Hales approached the Madison County
Commission regarding the shortfall and was giv-
en the go-ahead.
Current Lee Library Manager Linda Swann,
along with Library Aides, Kate McCarthy and
Mary Die, share in the excitement and will be run-
ning the new library. "We're so excited to have the
new library coming to Lee," Swann stated.
The library is planned to have a meeting room,
a children's area, an expanded public computer
access, and will employ the equivalent of one ad-
ditional staff, in addition to other features. But as
the details above illustrate, the real "feature" of
this library is the teamwork that went into making
it a reality. The Lee Public Library will be located
on the property immediately east of Lee Elemen-
tary School on US Hwy. 90.

Owners Find Their "Beulah Land" InLee

By Michael Curtis

"We named our business after the hymn, 'Sweet Beu-
lah Land, that captures our deep love of this communi-
ty," Carol-Jean Parke explains. When we first moved
here, we also owned property on Beulah Church Road. It
means so much to us to be in a place with strong Christ-
ian values and such kind people, so the name seemed so
right," Parke added. Operating under the name Beulah
Land Farm Stores, Parke, along with her sister and
brother-in-law, Elise and Milverton Dawkins, own and
operate three businesses near Lee.
DP's Automotive has been in full operation since
May, and from the looks of the traffic coming and going,
it's doing very well. Sincerely Jamaican Restaurant and
Elegant Consignments are scheduled to open on Decem-
ber 8 with a ribbon cutting at 1:00 p.m., and will include
all ,three businesses. Everyone is urged to come by to
sample the mouth-watering menu, and browse the at-
tractive stock and beautifully designed shop.
"We plan to have a variety of American and
Caribbean selections, but of course jerk and curry choic-
es will be featured as well," Parke said. "'All three busi-
nesses are on the same property, with the consignment
shop and restaurant in the same building. We renovated
the old Dawni's Kinder Academy she went on to say.
Coming from Miami, the Dawkins and Parke looked
for a place to build a future for their family, which in-.
cludes children at New Testament Christian Center
School, North Florida Community College and one child
is homeschooled. 'From the day we arrived, everyone
has made us feel so welcome. We hope everyone will en-

Friday, November 16, 2007

For many women, an
important rite of passage
for womanhood is becom-
ing a mother. However, all
too often, after the baby is
born, the focus quickly
shifts, and routines that
were once rituals are for-
gotten. While it's not sur-
prising that their children
and families come first, a
new report of 3,000 U.S.
moms reveals that al-
though most (76 percent)
agree it's just as important
for mothers to take care of
themselves as their fami-
lies, nearly eight in 10
moms don't do enough.
One of the biggest
things falling by the way-
side is a sense of feeling
and looking beautiful. A
whopping 84 percent ad-
mit they've let their ap-
pearance slide since be-
coming a mom and that
taking care of their ap-
pearance has become.
more of a wish than a real-
ity The majority (66 per-
cent) say guilt is one of the
barriers to self-care.
So, can .motherhood
and womanhood co-exist?
Suave developed the
"Motherhood vs. Woman-
hood Report" to under-
stand the many trade-offs
women face when they be-
come moms and the conse-.
quences for their sense of
womanhood. The study-
conducted in partnership
with Dr. Kathleen Gerson,
New York University pro-
fessor of- sociology-also
probed the benefits that
occur when moms do put

themselves back on the to-
do list.
Motherhood vs.
The report reveals that
about one-third of moms
believe that being a moth-
er and being a woman ac-
tually conflict. Further-
more, one in four can't re-
member the last time they
did something that made
them feel like a woman; 42
percent report it was more
than a month ago. The re-
port also found that:
Although 67 percent
of moms would rather get
their pre-baby body back
than their pre-baby sex
life, exercise opportunities
are tough to come by;
66 percent admit they
sometimes ,don't have
enough time to take a
shower or bath;
Some 80 percent have
gone weeks or months-
without a haircut (even
though they felt they need-
ed one); and
Over half (53 percent)
say that they've forgotten
to brush their teeth in the
morning. "I'm not sur-
prised that there's a con-
flict felt between being a
woman and being a moth-
er," says Gerson. "Mothers
remain key caregivers
who are relied upon heavi-
ly by the whole family But
moms also need to look out
for themselves, which
-means doing things that
help them keep an identity
of their own apart from
the role of mom."
The Benefits Abound

When moms do take
care of themselves, an
overwhelming 93 percent
-say it makes them feel
good. Moms who take care
of themselves report they
feel happier (76 percent),
more attractive (76 per-
cent) and more self-confi-
dent (72 percent). Further-
more, taking care of them-
selves made 60 percent feel
more feminine and just
over half feel like they are
setting a good example for
their children.
What else makes
moms feel good? Accord-
ing to the study, eight in 10
married moms admitted
nothing made them feel
prettier than a compli-
ment from their husband.
Say Yes to Beautiful
'Suave believes mother-
hood and womanhood can
co-exist,; and the brand is
on a mission to wake up
moms and encourage
them to take care of them-
selves and get their beauty
back. The brand's "Say Yes
to Beautiful" marketing
campaign reminds moms
that beauty has a place
amongst the dirty dishes
and piles of laundry.
"We know that these
women love being moms,
and that family is always a
top priority" says Sarah
Jensen, director, Unilever
Hair Care. "But we want to
issue a wake-up call to re-
mind moms to look in the
mirror, think about their
beauty and put them-,
selves back on the to-do

Normal Tissue Not Spared

In New Forms Of

Breast Cancer Radiotherapy

A five day course of radiotherapy
to treat breast cancer may, in some
cases, expose:as much lung and heart
tissue to potentially toxic radiation
as does the standard six weeks of
treatment, say researchers at Mayo
Clinic Jacksonville.
That because the short treatment.
known as partial breast irradiation.
focus radiation to a small sector of
the breast through multiple beams,
these beams can pass through the
breast to the heart and lungs that lie
behind, researchers found. Radiating
the entire breast over weeks, .as is
standard practice, can expose much
of the heart and lungs to long periods
of lower dose radiation, they say.
These findings, presented at the
annual meeting of the American So-
ciety for Therapeutic Radiation and
Oncology (ASTRO), suggest that both
methods carry risks and benefits that
may be equivalent, says the study's'
lead investigator, Laura Vallow, M.D.
"This tells us that the standard
course of therapy isn't that bad in
terms of its exposure to normal tis-
sue, but also that, sometimes, partial
breast irradiation may not spare as
much normal tissue as we hope," Val-
low says.
Oncologists are currently testing;
the two modes of radiotherapy -
whole breast irradiation (WBI) and 3-
D conformal partial breast irradia-
tion (PBI) in a large federally-sup-
ported clinical trial that is enrolling
thousands of women across the coun-
try who have been diagnosed with
early stage breast cancer and have
undergone lumpectomy.
The hope is that a short course of
radiotherapy will be as effective as
the much longer course, and that this
could lead to increased use of breast
conservation over mastectomy, Val-
low says. "Many women may be opt-
ing for a mastectomy instead of a
lumpectomy in order to avoid weeks
and weeks of radiation treatment,"
she says. "If the results of both meth-
ods are equivalent, then perhaps
some of these women will choose less

drastic surgery.
In two studies-being presented at
ASTRO, Vallow, along with Ashley
Gale, M.S., Anudh Jain, M.D., and a
team of physicists at Mayo Clinic
Jacksonville, used radiological para-
meters that were prepared for pa-
tients in the clinical trial and em-
ployed computers to assess how much
of normal heart and lung tissue
would be exposed if either WBI or
PBI were used.
"We suspect there are fundamen-
tal differences in the amount of expo-
sure to radiation a patient has using
these techniques, but no one has-ever
looked at how much normal tissue is
spared," she says. "We are interested
in the finer points of treatment plan-
ning, with the ultimate goal of mak-
ing treatment more tolerable with
less radiation exposure."
In the first study, the researchers
analyzed radiation plans for 25 pa-
tients enrolled in the clinical trial
and they calculated what radiation to
the lung would be if WBI or PBI was
used. They found that PBI exposes a
slightly larger volume of the lung to.
low doses of radiation, but also ex-
poses a smaller volume of lung to
high doses than WBI does.
"Patients are getting more expo-
sure overall to their lungs with par-
tial breast irradiation but less lung
tissue is irradiated to higher doses
compared to whole breast irradia-
tion," Vallow says.
For 14 of the same patients who
had a lumpectomy in their left
breast, investigators calculated radi-
ation to normal heart tissue. They
found that PBI and WBI delivered
about the same amount of radiation
to the heart of patients whose tumor
was located in the middle of the
breast. In patients whose tumors
were closer to the armpit, PBI did not
affect normal heart tissue, Vallow
"This study shows how far we
have really come in the delivery of
radiotherapy," she says. "We are look-
ing for nuances of tissue exposure."

Celebrate National

Nurse Practitioner Week

As part of a national
recognition, the role of
the nurse practitioner ,. '
(NP) will be showcased .
this week, November 11- .
17, 2007. This is a celebra-
tion of more than four
decades, of practice and
research by this group of
healthcare providers. Na- '
tionally this distin- ,
guished group of health-
care professionals num-
ber approximately 120,000
strong with and addition-
al 6,000 NP students grad-
uating each year.
NPs offer a unique
combination of nursing
and healthcare services. NPs have differen-
tiated themselves from other clinicians by
focusing on the whole person when treating
specific health problems, as well as educat-

ing the patient on the effects
those problems will have on
them. More and more con-
sumers are choosing NPs as
their partner in health be-
cause, in addition to provid-
ing high-quality primary,
'acute and specialty health-
care, NPs empower patients
to maintain and improve
their health by providing in-
dividualized and comprehen-
sive health education and
Madison is fortunate to
have several NPS in our com-
- munity Some work in prima-
ry care, others-work in emer-
gency settings, while others
are educators. For more information about
NPS and their profession you can go to the

Dr. Michael Stick

Neurosurgeons at Mayo Clinic in
Jacksonville, Fla., are now able to offer
patients with neck disc degeneration re-
quiring surgery a new artificial disc
that mimics the feel and movement of a
real and healthy disc,
Use of the artificial disc, which is
made of stainless steel; represents a sig-
nificant advance over, the traditional
way of treating degenerative cervical
(neck) spinal discs, says neurosurgeon
Kent New, M.D., Ph.D. "Cervical degen-
erative disc disease is a common cause
of severe pain in the neck and arms, so
if is encouraging that we have a better
option now to offer patients," he says.
Previously, Dr. New says, the only option
was to fuse a bad disc to adjacent bone.
While that procedure can reduce pain, it
also limits a patient's range of motion.
"This new device helps lessen pain
and restore motion." New estimates that
the artificial disc could be used in 30
percent to 40 percent of single-level cer-
vical spine surgeries that would previ-
ously have required fusion. Compared,
to the more invasive fusion procedure,
implanting the artificial disc usually
takes about 90 minutes, and patients are
required to spend one night in the hos-
Although the disc has been used for

several years in Europe, it is the first ar-
tificial disc approved for cervical spine
'surgery in this country. The Food and
Drug Administration only approved it
in July following a clinical trial with
over 500 patients. The artificial disc is
made up of two pieces of metal that at-
tach to upper and lower vertebrae with
bone screws, and relies on a special
mechanism that helps maintain a nor-
mal range of motion.
"Patients who received the artificial
cervical disc maintained normal range
of motion, returned to work earlier and
had less pain after surgery than pa-
tients who underwent fusion in the clin-
ical trial," New says. "Longer follow-up
of patients will be required to deter-
mine whether use of the artificial disc
reduces the need for further surgery at
other levels in the cervical spine."
Degenerative disc disease is a nor-
mal part of aging that occurs when our
intervertebral discs lose their flexibili-
ty and the gel in between them thins,
causing neck pain and other symptoms
like numbness and tingling in the
shoulders and arms. Cervical disc de-
generation can also contribute to spinal
stenosis and other progressive condi-
tions, as well as more sudden disc,her-

Five Ways To Avoid Foreclosure

Sam Ingram, President, myClosingSPACE.com offers
advice to Florida homeowners facing foreclosure due to
rising interest rates
In November of 2005, Greg and Mary Edwards pur-
chased their first new home in Orlando. Greg, a big rig
mechanic, and Mary, a receptionist, thought their
dream of owning a home would never come true. With
below average credit scores their financing options
were thin, but through a three-year adjustable rate
mortgage loan (ARM) they were able to purchase the
home with no money down and an extremely good in-
troductory interest rate.
That was a common story back then, but now the
couple faces a sadly more common story as they come
up on the end of their introductory term. Their interest
rate has jumped almost two points. They're barely able
to pay for this month's mortgage and next three month's
payment are looking grim. They have the opportunity
to refinance, but sadly programs for sub-primne borrow-
ers no longer exist. With no help in sight and their rate
starting to climb they face a credit damaging and emo-
tional scenario foreclosure. They have now joined al-
most a half million homeowners who as of last quarter
are facing foreclosures. Even more so, the numbers are
Greg and Mary are only fictional examples, but
their story is a reality for thousands of Americans. The
growing numbers of foreclosures has caused a ripple ef-
fect in the housing market which has led to the closing
of more than 170 mortgage lenders, according to Mort-
gageimplode.com, as well as a glut in the American
housing market and a drop in home prices. What hap-
pened? Did anyone see this coming? How can con-
sumers be saved from financial ruin? In order to look
ahead, let's take a look back at the late 90s.
In late 1999, Wall Street rating services like S&P and
Moody's told investors that securities backed by sub-.
prime mortgages carried minimal risk. These investors
poured billions of dollars into mortgage companies who
then aggressively push mortgages on this new class of
homebuyers. The mortgage company would then sell

bundles of mortgages (called Mortgage Back Securities
- MBS) to the secondary market to raise more capital to
continue their business. The original mortgage compa-
nies made great profits while investors experienced
great returns. This cycle continued for about six years.
Fast forward to 2006. Heavier than expected defaults
caused rating companies to change their tune and they
lowered the ratings on sub-prime Mortgage Back Secu-
rities. Home values started to drop, weakening investor
confidence. Thus, Wall Street stopped investing in
mortgages, leaving mortgage companies with no mar-
ket for the mortgages that they lent to homebuyers.
Then as introductory rates began to expire, thousands
of homeowners seeking to refinance began defaulting
on their loans found that mortgage programs that were
so plenteous a few short years ago had vanished.
Why didn't anyone see this coming? For .those
whose introductory rates are about to expire here are
five simple tips to avoid defaulting on your mortgages
or, even worse, enduring foreclosure.,
Speak to your lender
Usually your best opportunity to avoid foreclosure
is to contact your current mortgage lender. Your lender
doesn't want to own your home. Foreclosure adminis-
tration and subsequent marketing costs to unload your
property will cost them thousands.
Your lender would rather work with you than have
your house, on the foreclosure market. Ask them about
forbearance, reinstatement, payment plans or loan mod-
ifications. It is estimated that over 70% of homeowners
in default don't talk to their lender. Many lenders are
now creating new programs targeted to assisting home-
owners in financial distress. Call them to determine
your options.
Consult state and Federal foreclosure relief pro-
While state governments scramble to catch up with the
rising foreclosure rates, the Department of Housing
and Urban Development's, (HUD) Federal Housing Ad-
ministration has set up a website offering helpful advice
to consumers trying to avoid foreclosures.

http://www.fha.gov/foreclosure/index.cfm. You can
also call HUD's foreclosure hotline at (800) 569-4287.
State organizations also have hotlines to help alleviate
foreclosures including Florida's. Consumer Credit
Counseling Service: (800) 741-7040.
Utilize credit counseling services
Credit counseling services have the power to negoti-
ate with your mortgage holder to help alleviate your
debt. In most major cities, HUD-sanctioned housing
credit counselors are also available to talk to home-
owners about their options during foreclosure,
http://www.hud.gov/offices/hsg/sfh/hcc/hcs.cfm. I
only advise credit counselors as a last resort, but in to-
day's market this might be an option for many people.
But be warned, some counseling services may be
fraudulent. Don't sign anything without consulting
your attorney Many scams literally have homeowners
sign their houses away without paying off their origi-
,nal mortgage. In all cases, check with our local BBB
representative to see if a company is fraudulent or not.
Don't be too proud
Can you honestly afford to keep this house? You
may just have to sell and start over. Each person's situ-
ation is different, so talk to a financial advisor about
your personal situation. Most importantly, be as truth-
ful as possible when talking to your mortgage company,
lender, bank. program or service. They can only help
you as far as the information you give them.
Lower your closing costs
When refinancing after or during foreclosure don't
forget to shop around for savings on title and settle-
ment services. You can "Google" title insurance and
choose from companies that can help you find the low-
est cost. You can save hundreds of dollars in closing
costs that you can use to alleviate some of your finan-
cial burden.
In conclusion, never-be afraid to be proactive in
foreclosure process. You may have just missed a pay-
ment or your interest rate recently adjusted. Don't lose
heart. If you follow some of these suggestions you very
well may avoid foreclosure.

Here's a look at the top
three ways a home, inspec-

#3: Build A Better
... Budget
, .Because a home inspec-
tion report points out poten-
tial problems with a house,
it can help you budget for
upcoming repair expenses
and prioritize work that
needs to be done.
, "If you have a good un-
derstanding of what it's go-
ing to cost you to keep your
house in shape, you can get
a much better idea of what
perks--such as a new
kitchen--you can afford,"
says Steward. "You can also
use home inspection re-
ports to help determine
what you can afford in the
way of mortgage payments
and closing costs."

t.cord enrollment of 11,279 students for fall semester
2007. This semester's student enrollment represents a
27.9 percent increase from fall semester 2000.:
"VSU's strategic goals include action steps to ex-
pand undergraduate and graduate enrollment," Presi-
dent .Ronald .M. Zaccari said. "This is accomplished
through a united effort from our faculty and staff, who
have helped build a campus culture that challenges each
student .to expand their thinking skills and develop a
,more creative approach to problem solving."
Students enrolled for fall semester 2007 represent
154 Georgia counties, 45 states, Puerto Rico, the Virgin

Islands and 65 countries. Lowvrdes, Gwinnett and Fulton
counties boasted the most VSU students 1,947 stu-

strong supporter of international studies, VSU wel-
comed 157 international students to campus this fall.
The fall 2007 semester enrollment is the highest in
VSU's history and is a 3.6 percent increase from fall 2006
with 10,888 students. Both undergraduate and graduate
enrollment experienced significant enrollment increas-
es, with 9,653 undergraduate students (2.77 percent in-

While VSU is consistently growing, class sizes re-

male students outnumber male students marginally at a
ratio of 1.6:1.
VSU also strongly supports its distance learning
programs, which allow traditional and non-traditional
students, who are limited by both time and location, to
continue their education. More than 1,451 students are
enrolled in online courses for fall semester 2007, 436 of
which are solely enrolled online. At least 25 of these stu-
dents are involved in the newest Distance Learning pro-

in the Pee Wee football
league named after him.
"The idea for the league
was birthed right after Dave
died," Sirmon said. "I was
sitting on the porch with
Randy McPherson (long-
time football coach at
MCHS) and we thought why
not start a Pee Wee Football
League in Madison County?"
Sirmon said he spoke to a
few people; the idea caught
on; and boom! The league
was. started.
Alan Sowell, Jamie Car-
roll, Sirmon and several oth-
ers invited someone over
from Hamilton County's Pee"
Wee Football Organization.
He gave them tips about
what worked and what did-
Early in 1991, the year
after Galbraith died, a huge
meeting was held at Madison
County High School attend-
ed by 300 people. They held

the sign-ups in May and.
spent the whole summer rais-
ing money with bake sales
and car washes and other
.things. Sirnion said they
raised over $10,000 for
equipment. The City of
Madison and the County
added another $10,000 worth
of equipment and the league
was in business.
Sirmon said he had the
idea to call it the Dave Gal-
braith League after the man
so many loved and soi many
knew loved kids and football.
He spoke to Galbraith's fam-
ily members and they said it
would be fine. They felt'it
honored them and Dave. "I
know if Dave was around,
he'd still be out there coach-
ing football," Sirmon said.
The league played its
first season in 1991. There
were seven teams: four 7-10
year old teams, and three 10-
12 year old teams.,

The kick-off of the
league %\as on September 21,
1991. All se en teams played
games that Saturday for the
big opener. The first 7-9 year
old teams were the Bank of
Madison Cowvbo s,. the Flori-
da Plywood Falcons, the Jim
Seago Logging Saints and
the Giddons Grocery Red-
The 10-12 year old
teams in that first-ever Dave
Galbraith League %were the
Salls Ranch Cardinal,. the
Green\ ille Merchants Bucca-
neers and the Browning &
Sons Dolphins.
"In mi opinion. Coach
Galbraith \wanted a quality
program for the kids." said
Toni McDonald.
The Dave Galbraith
Football League is still alive
and well. The league is open
every fall in Madison Coun-
ty, keeping Galbraith's name,
spirit and memory alive.

On June 6 of 1990, Dave Galbraith was baptized at the Madison County High

ceremony was taken indoors. A circle of friends gathered to see him baptized and
pray for his recovery. (Photos by Mike Ewen/Democrat)

Wildlife Officials

Will Test For

Avian Influenza

At WMA Check

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC), and the United States Department of Agricul-
ture Wildlife Services biologists, will collect samples
from hunter-harvested ducks at several wildlife man-
agement area check stations throughout the state, to test
for highly pathogenic avian influenza H5N1.
Hunters will.not need to surrender their ducks, and
participation is voluntary The sampling will involve
swabbing the ducks' respiratory and digestive tracts.
Samples will be shipped to a diagnostic lab, where they
will be tested for avian influenza and other diseases.
The sampling is part of a continuing international
surveillance effort to determine if migratory birds car-
ry the H5N1 strain of avian influenza in North America.
Last year, more than 85,000 samples were collected
nationwide: None of the samples tested positive for the
virus. ..
While it is extremely unlikely that hunters could
contract avian influenza from wild birds in Florida, of-
ficials recommend taking common-sense precautions to
reduce the risk of contracting any disease from wildlife.
. For instance, do not harvest or handle wild birds that
are obviously sick or found dead; wear rubber gloves
while cleaning game; clean game oiitdoors and upwind;
and do not eat, drink or smoke while cleaning game.
It's also important to wash hands with soap and wa-
ter or alcohol wipes immediately after handling game or
cleaning bird feeders and to wash tools and work sur-
faces used to clean game birds with soap and water, then
disinfect with a 10-percent bleach solution.
In addition, hunters should separate raw meat, and
anything it touches, from cooked or ready-to-eat foods to
avoid contamination.
The FWC recommends cooking game birds thor-
oughly. Meat should 'reach an internal temperature of
165 degrees Fahrenheit to kill disease organisms and

Fishing After Cold Fronts

By Scott Suggs
First, let me say that as an angler I understand that
bass fishing after a cold front can be very frustrating.
Especially if you. fish in areas with Florida-strain
largemouth bass, cold fronts can pretty much be the ex-
cuse you need to park the boat and head to a deer stand
or sit in the house and watch football.
But cold fronts are just a fact of life for most of the
country from about October through April. That's a
long period of time to simply give up on bass fishing.
Those fish have to eat at some point during this six-
month stretch; fish are going to be caught by someone
somewhere. I figure that might as well be me.
As the air temperature cools from a cold front,, the
surface temperature of the water will also begin to
cool. This will force bass in shallow water to seek hold-
ing areas in deeper water where the temperature will
be warmer. I use my electronics to find brush piles in
deep water or deep-water ledges near channel swings
or secondary points. Once I find them, I do like to use a
jig or a drop shot, something with a vertical presenta-
tion. A %-ounce football jig tipped with a Berkley
PowerBait Chigger Craw and dragged slowly through
these areas can be very effective.
Sometimes smaller baits can be they key, too. If you
normally catch fish on a 10-inch Berkley PowerBait
Power Worm, try a 6-inch worm; same goes for stick-
and creature-style baits. Being cold blooded the body
temperature of a bass is regulated by its environment.
When the water cools, they become lethargic and their

metabolism slows. Big meals aren't needed, but a easy
meal one that won't require much work to capture or
consume is always welcome.
Don't overlook tight cover, either. Bushes, root balls,
dock pilings, logs and rock can sometimes draw in
large numbers of bass. They will huddle in these pro-
tected areas where the water temps are more stable.
Try pitching jigs or wacky rigged soft plastics like a
PowerBait Fat Dover Crawler in these areas and let
them sink. It might take some time, but you can catch
these fish.
More than anything, fishing after a cold front re-
quires anglers to slow down. The bass are going to be
moving and reacting slowly, so your presentation
should not be fast. Bait like Gulp! are ideal for slow pre-
sentations because the scent and flavor that are built
into the baits works even better when fished slowly
Fishing after cold fronts isn't ideal, but don't let low
air temperatures keep you off the water. This time of
the year can yield some very big fish that have been
gorging on the shad that spawn in the backs of coves.
Plus, there won't be much boat traffic. Just change
your tactics a little and go catch some big bass while
everyone else is sitting around the house.
