(Not The TV Series Of The Same Name)


Sometimes, I feel
like a weed,, growing
where I am not wanted,
choking the life out of
oQther plants around me.
Sometimes, I feel as if
I'm being choked by
weeds.
What is a weed? Ac-
cording to the dictio-
nary, it is simply a plant'
that grows where it is
not wanted. It's not .a


nuisance unless it ends
up where it is not want-
ed. It may be welcomed
other places and even
embraced in some
places but when it grows
where it's not wanted, it
stops being a plant and
becomes a weed.
When I realize that
others think that I'm be-
coming a weed, I hope
that I decide to move on


. from where I am ham-
pering others from
growing. I hope instead
to flourish and give
nourishment to others
around me.
God doesn't have
any weeds in His gar-
den. I'm so glad of that
because I know that
there is one place I will
always belong.
Sometimes, I have a
tendency to look at oth-
ers as weeds. I pray that
God grants me .the
grace and the mercy to
look at them as flour-
ishing plants and to
help tend and water
them so they grow in
God and. become the
people that Jesus wants
them to be.


U.S. That's for starters,"
the March alert states.

are no guarantees you

I received this
"Grandmas Hands"
story. by e-mail last
week I thought wow
that is such a superb
idea. It got me think-
ing, but'unfortunately
within our immediate
family we can not cre-
ate a five generations
picture, because for
one we have no daugh-
ters, and for two most
all of ,our generations
beyond my mom have
passed on. I have been
pondering the idea
this week and have
come up with a few
ideas of my own.
S. Pleas? read this in-
teresting story --
Grandma, some ninety
plus years sat feebly on
the patio bench. She
didn't move, just sat
with her head down
staring at her hands. I
sat down beside her
and she, didn't ac-
knowledge my' pres-
ence. I wondered if she
was okay Finally not
really wanting to dis-
turb her but I wanted
to see that she was
okay, I asked her are
you all right? She
raised her head and
said yes, I'm fine with a
clear strong voice.
Have you ever looked
at your hands, she
asked. I mean really
looked at your hands? I
slowly opened my
hands and stared down
at them. I turned them
over, palms up then
palms down. No, I
guess I had never real-,
ly looked at my hands
as I tried to figure out
the point she was mak-
'ing; Grandma smiled
and ielatdie ths story:
Stop and think for a
moment about the
hands you have, how-
they have served you
well throughout your
years. These hands
though wrinkled,
shriveled and weak
have been the tools' I
have used all my life to
reach out, grab, and
embrace life.. They
braced and caught my
fall when as a toddler I
crashed upon the floor.
They put food in my
mouth, and clothes on
my back. As a child my
mother taught me to
fold them in prayer.
They tied my shoes
and pulled on my
boots. They held my


husband and wiped my
tears when he went off to
war. They have been
dirty, scraped and raw,
swollen 'and bent. They
were clumsy when I tried
to hold my newborn, son.
Decorated with my wed-
ding band they showed
the world thatI was mar-
ried and' loved someone
special. They wrote my
letters to 'him and trem-:
bled and shook when I'
buried my parents and
spouse. They have held
my children and grand-
children, consoled neigh-
bors, ahd shook in fists in
anger when I didn't un-
derstand. They covered
my face, combed ,my
hair, and cleansed the
rest of my body. They:.
have been sticky, wet,


bent 'and broken, dried
and raw. And to this day
when not much of any-
thing else of me works
real well, these hands
hold me up, lay me down,
afid again continue" to
fold in prayer. These-
hands are the mark of
where I've been and the
ruggedness of life. But
more importantly it will
be these hands that God
will reach out and take
when He leads me home.
And with my hands He
will lift me to His side
and there I will use these
hands to touch the face of
God. I will never look at
my hands the same
again. When my hands
are hurt or sore or when I
stroke the face of my
children and husband I
will think of Grandma.
While on this related sub-
ject I looked at my hands
and admired my dia-
mond rings qn my left,
hand. Thinking back to

how they got there. My
single diamond engage-
ment ring, has been on
my finger for 33 years
and has seen a lot. My
mother had given me' a
single diamond ring iin
1976 when I was 15 when
Kevin and I started ta*l-
ing about getting mar-
ried. The ring originally
belonged to my mother's
mother and was left to
her when her moi
passed on when my momn
was only ten. Then it was
in turn given to me as the
first born daughter. At
the time I planned on
eventually passing it on
to my first born daught.r.
As it turns out we had po
daughters so when my
sister had a baby girl I de-
cided then and there thit


she, my niece Sabrinda,
will be willed this rim.
The single diamond wa.4
set in an early 1900's sX-
ting, therefore Kevin arid
I went and picked out.a
new setting and had tr
diamond reset' in 'a more
modern setting as we be-
came engaged. Then lat-
er went and bought a
wedding band set to
match. Hence these rinTg
have been on my hand
ever since. In 2003 my
moms step mother, my
grandmother, had to have
a surgery, because of her
age it was with risks. She
had left another beautiful
old diamond ring in an
envelope, where she
wrote "For Sheree to
keep" on it. She did pass
away from complica,
tions. I received this ring
which is beautiful and
holds eleven diamonds
and a lot of history. I only
wear this ring on special
occasions as I'm afraid of
losing the stones. This
ring was intended for me
as I was the first grand
'daughter. It will be willed
to my first grand daugh-
ter Trinity when I pass.
These rings always have
and always will hold'a
history of a long line of
Love. My mother s par-
ents were married i1
1933, when my grand-
mother passed \awy in
1947, my grandfather re-
married shortly a er fof
my moms bereit\also.
My mom and chd were
married in 1957 a"id
Kevin and I were married
in 1978. Adding all thl
years in the life of thes6
diamonds I estimate al-
most 80 years of love,
marriage and life. That to
me makes these ring
very special Family Heie

Three Key Ideas Help You

Make Better Food Choices


Eating healthier
miay to be a topic you,
want to avoid; you think
it'means restricting the
foods you enjoy and eat-
Mig foods that don't taste
'good. In reality, a bal-,
anced food intake over
time is a better way of
t~inking. You may not
realize it, but the Di-
etary Guidelines for
Americans are a practi-
cal resource to help you
get on track with your
obpd habits. They are re-
vUsed every five years to
d, just the recommenda-
tions and to reflect the
i'ost recent scientific
Xnutrition research; the
latest revision came in
25. T
Eating a healthy bal-
Ince of nutritious foods
is still the central theme
qg the Dietary Guide-
fli'es. Since Americans
seem to be gaining more
weight, chronic diseases
such as heart disease
and diabetes are on the
rise. To, combat these
h alth risks, there is
ore emphasis on calo-
,*e control and physical
nativity. Three key rec-
ommendations for the
general population will
help .you achieve a
healthierr diet; they in-
plude a balance of calo-
ries, weight control and.
-'sical,activity.
Adequate Nutrient
Within Calorie Needs -
Consume a variety of
nutrient-dense foods
fiom the basic food
groups. Eat more fruits
~id vegetables, whole
grains and low fat dairy
foods; these foods are
l6wer in calories and full
of nutrients your body
i eeds to maintain
health. At the same time,
limit foods high in satu-
rated and trans fats, cho-
lesterol, added sugars,
salt and alcohol. If you
are not sure what nutri-
ents a food contains,
read the nutrition label.
Weight Manage-
ment To 'maintain
body weight in a healthy
range, balance calories
fi-om foods and bever-
ages with calories ex-
ppnded. In other words,
don't eat more food than
you will burn off in a
day. Take a close look at'
the foods and beverages
you consume. Read la-
bpls for the. number of
servings in a' package,
you may be surprised
the beverage you're..
dOinking is 2' servings
Which means you are"
getting 2% times the
calories printed on' the
_4bel. That quick snack
you've grabbed might
ypry well be,much high-
er in calories than you
thought.. To prevent
weight gain over time,
make small decreases in
,}


what you eat and in-
crease physical activity.
Physical Activity
- Engage in regular
physical activity and re-
duce sedentary activi-
ties to promote health,
psychological well-be-
ing, and a healthy body,
weight. To reduce the
risk of, chronic disease
in adulthood, engage in
at least 30 minutes of
moderate-intensity
physical activity most
day of the week. If you
can't find 30 minutes in a
day, try 10 minutes at a
time. During your coffee
brake, do a few, simple
exercises, take a 10
minute walk during
your lunch hour and
then do a physical activi-
ty for 10-15 minutes
when you get home in
the evening.
The Guidelines go a
step further to say for
most people,. greater
health. benefits can be
obtained by engaging in
physical activity of
more vigorous intensity
or longer duration and
suggest 60 minutes of
moderate activity on
most days of week. To
achieve physical fitness,
a combination of cardio-
vascular' conditioning,
stretching exercise for,
flexibility and resistance
exercise for muscle
strength and endurance
is recommended. It is a
good idea to alternate
the types of exercise you
do during,the week. You
can walk several days a
week, lift weights on al-
ternate days and build
stretching exercises in
before and after each
session. Daylight. sav-
ings time will begin this
weekend, so you will'
have more daylight
.hours for physical activi-
ty. Of course, with any
exercise, it is recom-
mended .you consult
your doctor before start-
ing a program.

Celebrating The

Town Of Lee!
Hey It's Saturday morning and something big is
afoot in the bustling Town of Lee, so hitch up that
shiny black pair of highstepping horses you just
bought from last year's harvest to your sturdy two-
horse wagon, get your wife and kiddies safely tucked
in, and head for town. You're already behind your
neighbor down the road who pulled out at daybreak.
He wanted to be the first one there for this is a his-
torical event. This farmer's market town has grown
so big. It now has 20 stores as well as a bank, cotton
gin and gristmill that the markets have decided it
should now be incorporated and so today, after the
incorporation papers are signed, there will be a full
day of celebration. There will be feasting, great ca-
maraderie and even dancing in the streets to the mu-
sic of Lee's own two bands!
The above scenario was actually acted in 1909 in
the Town of Lee. Now on Saturday afternoon, March
28, Lee invites everyone to be its guests for a reen-(
actment of the signing of its incorporation papers.
Join us as we celebrate our 100th anniversary with
the following, beginning at 4 p.m.:
Invocation Rev. Rich Quackenbush
Welcome Mayor Ernestine Kinsey
Introduction of Dr. Jessica West by Gil Mc-
Carthy
Reenactment of incorporation by Dr. West and
actors
Flag raising
Introduction of speakers, local, county and state
and Mayor Kinsey
Social time with entertainment by Jeffrey Todd
Fish dinners by Lee Volunteer Fire Department
Fireworks over Lake Brittany by Marshall Beck
and Steve McHargue with thanks to Kin John-
son
And a tired but happy family climbs into its
wagon and begins the five-mile journey home. The
kiddies will be asleep. Mama will get to them to bed
while Daddy gets the team unhitched, stabled and
fed. Then the two will have a cup of coffee and dis-
cuss the day's events before they too "hit the hay."
We, your hosts in Lee, hope that you too have en-
joyed this centennial event with us. We are certain-
ly happyyou'came. P ,-- .'~'
My Town
There is a town within my mind,
The kind of team you seldom find
With neighborly people, good and kind
In this town you find, leave others behind
For here you'll find the ties that bind.
Though not the town of my birth.
It is where Heaven smiles upon earth.

Man Arrested For No
Valid Drivers License

And Resisting Arrest
A Madison man was arrested for resisting
arrest without violence and not having a valid
drivers license on Friday, March 20.
According to a Madison Police Department
report, Patrolman Reggie Alexander observed
Dewayne Turner driving a small four-door car.

S ] to stop Turner.

out of the car and fled on foot.
SI Turner was caught and arrested.

Miami Man Sentenced To17 Years In Prison
In Multi-Million Dollar "Ponzi" Scheme
R. Alexander. Acosta, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, and
Jonathan I. Solomon, special agent in charge, FBI, announced that defendant. Andres Leonel


Pimstein, of Miami, was sentenced
March 20 to a 17-year imprisonment, to
be followed by three years of' supervised
release.
Pimstein pled guilty in December
2008 to a 12-count information that
charged' him with wire fraud, in viola-
tion of 18 U.S.C. 1343; arising out of a
multi-million dollar investment "Ponzi"
scheme (Case No. 08-20980-CR-JORDAN).
From 2005 through 2008, Pimstein so-
licited friends,-family, and other individ-
uals in the United States to invest, in a
business venture involving the purport-
ed sale of consumer electronics name-
ly, the Apple iPod to Ripley Corp. S.A.,
a department store chain based'in Chile.
He promised potential investors an annu-
al return ranging.from 18% to 36% to be
paid in weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly in-
stallments, and marketed his familial
ties to Ripley Corp.'s owners, thereby
substantiating his promise of high-yield,
short-term profits. The venture, -however,
was a fraud.
As a result of the scheme, Pimstein,
and those working at his direction,
raised approximately $50,573,259.18 from
146 confirmed victims. To date, these vic-
tim-investors have suffered an unreim-
bursed loss of principal of
approximately $39,564,834.62.

Winn-Dixie Celebrates 30 Years In Madison


By Bryant Thigpen
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Many stores and shops have come
and gone down through the years, but
one business that has remained a con-
stant is Winn-Dixie. One of America's
premiere supermarkets first opened
their doors to a new store and shop-
ping center at the current location on
West Base Street on March 29, 1979 in'
Madison.
On Friday, March 23, 1979, the En-
terprise Recorder published a story on
the grand .opening. Below are some
highlights from the original story that
would appear of interest.
"The interior of this beautiful new
Winn-Dixie Store is modern through-


out. Completely air conditioned, vinyl
tile floors, acoustic ceiling, and walls
painted with soft colors."
"The 19,880 square feet of the floor
space affords this new Winn-Dixie
wide, spacious aisles, and sufficient
display area for the more than 6,000
items offered throughout the store
space."
"W.C. Hurst will be the store man-
ager of this new store with J.A. Nel-
son, Jr., as Asst. Manager, Lavonne
Driggers, Market Manager, and W.Q.
Bell as Produce Manager."
In 1979, Winn-Dixie was the na-
tion's fourth largest retail food chain
and the No. 1 southern food chain with,
over 1,168 stores and the fastest grow-


ing throughout the southeast. Winn-
Dixie employed 24,000 full-time em-
ployees and approximately 20,000
part-time.
Today, Winn-Dixie has 520 stores
in Florida, Louisiana, Alabama and
Mississippi. The company has in-
creased to over 50,000 employees. Lisa
Davis works as the Madison store di-
rector and has approximately 100 asso-
ciates employed. There are
approximately 100 associates em-
ployed in Madison.
"Winn-Dixie has been a part of
Madison County for the last 30 years,
and we look forward to serving this
community for years to come," stated
Joshua Whitton, communications


manager for Winn-Dixie Stores.
Although the store has battled
many economic storms, Winn-Dixie in
Madison has remained constant.
Winn-Dixie has been in Madison
for well over 30 years. Bill and Eliza-
beth Lovett of Madison were two of
the original owners, along with the
Davis brothers, who adopted the
Winn-Lovett name until 1955. Today,
Winn-Dixie sells a special house brand
of coffee called Winn-Lovett.
Congratulations to Winn-Dixie on
over 30 years of business.
Every Wednesday, the Madison
County Carrier publishes Winn-Dixie

It's been a long, dynamic journey that's taken us from Idaho to Florida.
From two brothers running one small storefront to an impressive operation em-
ploying thousands of associates. Winn-Dixie operates supermarkets through-
out thep southeastern. United States under the Winn-Dixie, Winn-Dixie
Marketplace and SaveRite banners. For. over 80 years,.the Winn-Dixie name has
stood for real quality and value. We're proud to have built our reputation on not
only always delivering a quality product, but on constantly striving to find new
ways to improve that quality, It's a tradition we're intent upon continuing far
into the future.

small local general store; his brother, William Milton (WM.) will soon
join him at the store.

1925: Heeding the advice of his brother Carl, WM. decides to move to the boom-
ing Florida area to open a business. With a $10,000 loan from his father,
W.M. purchases the Rockmoor Grocery in Miami. W.M. and sons Artemus
Darius (A.D.), James Elsworth (J.E.), Austin and Tine are the store's
stockholders.
1927: The Davis family changes the store's name to Table Supply and opens
four more stores.
1931: W.M. and sons decide to pay $10,000 for
Retail chainiLively Stores. The acquisi-
tion leads to ownership of 33 Table Sup-
ply stores stretching across Southern

the four Davis sons assume responsibili-
ties for Table Supply Because the family
believed WM.'s death could have been
prevented with better medical care, the
family begins a relationship wh the Mayo Clinic, which continues today.

Flood-Prone Lands In Florida May Be

Eligible For Restoration And Protection

With Economic Recovery Funds


U.S. Department of Agriculture
will provide up to. $145 million to eli-
gible landowners nationwide
Through the floodplain easement
component of its Emergency Water-
shed Protection EWP Program,
SAgriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack
announced today. USDA's Natural
I sources Conservation Service ad-
-, ministers the EWP program. The
Funds will be used to restore an esti-
mated 60,000 acres, nationwide, of
Frequently flooded land to its natural
state and create jobs. USDA has lim-
l ited spending to no more than $30
T million per state.
Carlos Suarez, NRCS state con-
Sservationist in Florida, announced
that eligible landowners can sign up
'i'or these easements from March
9-27.
"We will be working with
- l ndowners who voluntarily agree
to restore the floodplains -to their
"natural condition by placing their
land into easements," Suarez said.'
These easements will convert envi-
ronmentally sensitive lands into ri-
, 'arian corridors and wooded
"Bottomlands that are'so vitalfor fish
Sand wildlife habitat, and to mitigate
downstream flooding."
Secretary Vilsack said green
'jobs can be created in rural commu-
d ilities nationwide when landowners
Setablish conservation practices on
'the land entered into easement. Jobs
will be created mostly in the engi-
neering, biology and construction'


fields when trees and native grasses
are planted and the hydrology of the
floodplain is restored.
The funding, obtained from the
American Recovery and Reinvest-
ment Act of 2009, includes both tech-
nical and financial assistance to
restore the easements. All funds will
be spent on targeted projects that
,can be completed with economic
stimulus monies., The goal is to have
all floodplain, easements acquired
and restored within 12-18 months.
The EWP Program's floodplain
easement component' allows USDA's
Natural Resources Conservation
Service to ,purchase easements on
lands damaged by flooding. The re-
stored floodplain will generate
many public benefits, such. as* in-
creased flood protection, enhanced
fish and wildlife habitat, improved
water quality, and a reduced need
for future public, disaster assistance.
Other benefits include reduced ener-
gy consumption when certain agri-
cultural activities and practices are
eliminated and increased carbon se-
questration as permanent vegeta-
tive cover is re-established.
Interested landowners in Flori-
da can contact Jesse Wilson, State.
Conservation Engineer and EWP
Program Manager for floodplain
easements during the signup. For
information about EWP Program
floodplain easements, please visit
www.nrcs. usda.gov/programs/ewp/
Floodplain/index.html.


Agriculture Secretary Vilsack Announces

Disaster Assistance For Producers

USDA Extending Buy-In fWaiver for Those Impacted by Natural Disasters


The recently approved American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act of
2009 allows producers to become eligi-
ble for 2008 disaster assistance autho-
rized by the 2008 Farm Bill even if
they did not previously obtain other-
wise statutorily required crop insur-
ance from the Federal Crop Insurance
Corporation or Non-insured Crop Dis-
aster Assistance Program NAP -
coverage for 2008 by now paying a buy-
in fee through May 18, 2009.
"President Obama is providing an
additional opportunity to producers
who suffered losses as a result of nat-
ural disaster because he understands
they are going through tough times
and he acknowledges their impor-
tance in helping stimulate the econo-
my and create jobs," said Agriculture
Secretary Tom Vilsack.
Paying such a buy-in fee does not
provide'the producer with crop insur-
ance or NAP.f6r the 2008 crop year: it
merely permits the producer to be-
come eligible for the 2008-crop disaster
assistance programs. ;
.Producers who have not 'already
taken the necessary steps to become
eligible for the Supplemental Revenue
Assistance Program,; Emergency As-
sistance for Livestock, Hofieybees,
and Farm-Raised Fish, and the Tree
Assistance Program maynow;become
eligible for such programs by com-
pleting the following steps by May 18,
2009:
U.Paying a $100 buy-in fee per
crop. The maximum fee for insurable
or non-insurable crops is $300 per
county, per producer, not.to exceed


$900 for multi-county producers.
In the case of each insurable
crop (those for which insurance is
available from the Federal Crop Insur-
ance Corporation), excluding grazing
land, agreeing to obtain a policy or
plan of insurance for the next insur-
ance year for which crop insurance is
available; coverage level should equal
70 percent or more of the yield at 100
percent of the price.
In the case of each non-insur-
able crop, agreeing to file the required
paperwork and pay the applicable ad-
ministrative NAP.coverage fee by the
applicable state application closing
date for the next available year.
Producers who choose to buy in
under this provision will be consid-
ered, for insured crops for the 2008
Farm Bill disaster assistance pro-
'grams only, to have obtained a policy
or plan of insurance for :the 2008 crop
year at a level of .coverage not to ex-
ceed 70 percent of the yield at 100 per-
cent of the price. For non-insurable
crops for the 2008 Farm Bill disaster
programs only, producers will be con-
sidered to have, a level of coverage
equal to 70 percent of the yield. These
levels of coverage will be used to cal-
culate the 2008 Supplemental. Revenue
Assistance Program guarantee. Pro-
ducers who buy in will not be eligible
for actual crop insurance or NAP ben-
efits for the 2008 crop.
Producers-who meet the definition
of "Socially Disadvantaged, Limited
Resource," or "Beginning Farmer or
Rancher," are not required to pay the
buy-in fee.'

Homeowner Tips For Purchasing Products


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Now, more than ever be-
fore, homeowners making
large home improvement
changes should take the time
to, carefully review product
warranties. That's the advice
of representatives from sever-'
al: leading building product
manufacturers.
"Unfortunately we are in
economic conditions in our
country that are exceptionally
difficult for some building
product manufacturers," says
Tom Riscili, president of Fy-
pon. "That means some com-
panies are going out of
business or are being sold. As
a result, they are not able to
stand behind their product
warranties. This can be dan-
gerous for. consumers. Home-


owners need to be .vigilant
about researching the compa-
nies, products and warranties
they're investing in to assure
adequate coverage and satis-
faction in the future."
More and more, it is being
recommended that consumers
seek out "strong and long"
warranties on major building
products for the home, such as
windows, siding and roofing.
First, search for a nation-
al manufacturer with a solid
reputation that can be de-
pended upon to: survive the
current economic stresses in
the marketplace. Second, care-
fully review the company's
product warranties. Look for
a manufacturer that stands.
behind their product for many
years, offers full replacement
of potentially defective prod-,


uct and, ideally, allows trans-
ferability of the warranty to
the next owner of the home.
Warranties can be long,
cumbersome documents, but
it's very important for home-


search now will save
headaches in the long run.
Another tip for homeown-
ers: a manufacturer's warran-
ty does not typically include
installation or replacement


Homeowners need to be vigilant about re-
searching the companies, products and war-
ranties they're investing in to assure adequate
coverage and satisfaction in the future.


owners to read through them
completely before making a
product purchase. Every rep-
utable company has a web site
or 1-800 phone number that
one can contact to ask war-
ranty questions and gain
more insights into the product
you're purchasing. Bottom
line, investing the time on re-


costs. "Manufacturers can
only warrant the products
they make, not the installa-
tion of that product," says
Mark Savan, president 6f a
major window manufacturer.
"That's why it's important to
review the installation poli-
cies of remodelers and con-
tractors you hire. When top


quality products meet excel-
lent installation it's always a
win-win for the homeowner.
Have a conversation to make
sure you are comfortable that
he and his employees, or any
subcontractors they may use,
have been 'factory-trained' to
properly install the products
according to the manufactur-
er's specifications."
Lastly, homeowners need
to make sure to register their
warranties once their prod-
ucts are installed and to save
original receipts. Only by reg-
istering products are home-
owners eligible for warranty
benefits that could be' ex-
tremely important in future
years.

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Rural land, as a whole, has appre-
ciated steadily for two decades with-
out the crazy price bubbles that
eventually blew up "hot" urban, resi-
dential markets. Still, some farmland
was overvalued because of the get-
rich-quick lure of corn-based ethanol.
And a lot of timberland was priced up
as second-home property, which over-
valued it for timberland buyers.'
Many experts are suggesting that
that many sellers will accept big dis-
counts on properties) they need to
move and know 'are overpriced even
though their :asking prices have not
been lowered. For example, there was
a 30-acre, second home type
"farmette" that was priced at about
$290,000 for most of 2008, and then re-.
duced to $270,000. Later, it sold for
about $175,000, more than 40 percent
off the original asking price. Of
.course, it's painful for sell- .
ers to watch their hyped-
up expectations deflate,
but it's the only way to get
things sold. When market
conditions force price re-
ductions, both buyers and
sellers should remember
it's business, not personal.
Generally speaking,
local banks and credit
unions operating in small
towns and rural areas re-
main accessible sources of mortgage
money for land and country property.
More than many banks, these lenders
are not in as much trouble with their
mortgage loans. Additionally, the Fed-
eral Reserve has stated directly that it
will keep interest rates as low as pos-
sible in hope that people will borrow
and make America's economic engine
'turn again. Fixed rates on long-term
mortgages are not likely to be better
than now.
Another advantage of buying now
is that the federal government is print-
ing and borrowing money to fund the
bailouts and the stimulus packages,
present and future, which may ulti-
mately approach $2 trillion. Inflation
may be the result. If so, land and prop-
-erty investments bought in 2009 when
prices are pressured will benefit from
the inflation that looms in the future.
No investment is free of all risks,


however. So, before buying property,
land especially, consider these three
basic types of risks:
1) Paying more than the property
is worth to the buyer
2) Not knowing something about
the property that would have
negative future consequences
3) Being hit by deteriorating 'per-
sonal finances or economic
changes that force an untime-
ly sale.
Disciplined buying can prevent
impulsive, emotional overpaying: for
property The price a buyer should-pay
is based on what the property's assets
and problems are worth to him in light
of his resources and plans. The buy-
er's price has nothing to do with, the
seller's asking price, appraisal num-
ber, tax-assessed value and the seller's
opinions of value. Research camial-
most, always discover defects in a prop-
erty and establish the true valubsfof
its assets. These two risks,
Accordingly, canbe mini-
mized through research
and analysis.
The risk of changed icir-
cumstances cannot 'be simi-
larly controlled. It runs With
everything we do, and don't
do. It should be factored in to
every decision to buy prop-
erty as in: What do I do if
something bad happens?
Dismissing the risk of
changed circumstances because it's
hard to forecast and quantify doesn't
diminish it. Lack of planning for the
worst case simply increases the cost if
things come to that.
There are shelves of books writ-
ten by "real-estate gurus," most of
Whom I consider borderline Bernie
Madoffs. They approach buying prop-
erty as a testosterone competition to
"git 'er done." Buying something was
their goal, not buying intelligently
Any idiot could "git 'er done" in recent
years, and many now regret having
done so. Smart buying is a matter of
getting the right property done at, the
right price and terms with no surpris-
es. It's a matter of thkiking through, of
discarding 100 possibilities to find one
that works, of knowing how to deter-
mine a buyer's price.

,, The Spanish Flu Pandemic of
1918-1919 was a frightening reality for
people worldwide, and Madison Coun-
a ty felt the sharp blow of the disease.
In her book "History of-Madison
County," Elizabeth Sims reports that
., the arrival of the virus is a mystery.
I Many people suspected germ warfare
.Lfrom the Germans, but nothing was
.,-ever proven to that effect.
., The outbreak of influenza hit
._,quickly and traveled across the globe,
k, killing anywhere between 50-100 mil-
., lion people worldwide. The pandemic
began its second wave, and most
lethal, from the Port of Boston.
,. With the United States Mobilizing
yfqr WWI during 1917, men from all
over the nation gathered in tight quar-
ters within training camps, making
illness easily transferred. The first
wave of influenza had occurred in ear-
ly 1918, which became more deadly on
a, trip from the United States to
rance, and then back to the United
'States.
It began, Aug. 27. 1918 on the Com-
;rnionwealth Pier in Boston. Sailors be-
gan to fall ill and were sentto the local
r'Ohelsea naval Hospital at Chelsea,
MA. Around the same time, ships de-
Siparted for Philadelphia and New Or-
,5vteans, spreading the virus. The flu
made its way to nearby Camp Devens
-, ip Central Massachusetts, ravaging
n'',soldiers stationed there. At the height
-e',of the epidemic at Devens, about 100
soldiers were dying per day.
tai. By September, the constant trans-
acdfer of troops had spread the disease
Through the United States and to many
&'parts of the globe. The civilian popu-
i:tiace was quickly infected with the flu
-kbhecause of large public mobilization,
drIparades, and then later victory pa-
-rr-rades.
a":! There were several flu epidemics
-4Iin world history before, but this strain
-q.;of the virus struck quickly and was
moree deadly than any other. Within
.;hours of the first symptom, the victim
r-would-become too weak .to even walk.
;,: Mantywouild die the next day
Symptoms would include a bluish
tint appearing on the skin with purple
-: blisters, coughing up blood due to ob-
struction to the lungs, as well as
hoarse intakes of breath which were
Jx barely enough to keep the patient
-0 alive. In some cases, the virus caused
Uncontrollable hemorrhaging which
filled the lungs causing patients to
'i. drown in their own fluids.
In other cases, the flu would cause
1'1 frequent loss of bowel control and the,
victim would die from losing critical
3 intestinal lining and blood loss. In
most cases, the patient would die from
symptoms relating to pneumonia, but
slower-progressing cases indicated
secondary bacterial pneumonias.
City officials hoped to keep the flu
contained within the .military en-
-.r campments, but Boston officials were

considered a panacea. A woman in
Pennsylvania had boasted of serving
her family onion omelets, onion sal-
ads, and onion soup with every meal.
Not one of her eight children con-
tracted the disease.
S' A four-year old girl in Portland
Oregon was said to have fully recov-
ered from the flu because her mother
had dosed her with onion syrup and
buried her from head-to-toe for three
days in raw onions. Evidence showing
e a ,these remedies were any good was
never fully proven, but the people was
under the impression it was better to
be doing something to fend off the
Spanish flu than sitting idly by wait-
ing to become a statistic.
The first reports of s Spanish flu in
Florida in the Public Health reports
occurred in Key West. The following
week, the PHS had found "epidemics
have been reported from Key W#sthand
Pensacola."
w eOn the week of Oct. 18, the PHS re-
ported that from Oct. 5-15, 158 deaths
were reported from influenza and 800
cases were under treatment at Key
West.
Major outbreaks in Florida oc-
curred in the more largely populated
cities such as Jacksonville, Tampa.
Miami, Gainesville. and Tallahassee.
By Oct. 25, a total of 371 people had
been'reported dead from the disease.
The peak of the pandemic occurred
during the week of Oct.19. when 428
deaths were reported that week alone.
Statewide, schools were closed,
church services were canceled, and
movie theaters and soda fountains
were closed. People were encouraged
when they went anywhere to wear a
gauze mask around their fades.

.With any wedding, an important component is
the music, which accomlpanies it. Different
melodies are played at different points of the cer-
emony The Wedding March consists of two
melodies, one for the traditional processional,
while the other for the recessional.
The history of the wedding march dates back
to the mid-19th century Before then, music was
generally not permitted at weddings. However, it
> became a custom to play the music during the
Ceremony. ;
The traditional processional chosen for
weddings, "Here Comes the Bride" was origi-
nally one of the major features of Robert-
Wagner's opera "Lohengrin," which pre-
miered in 1850. Ironically, the opera
wasn't a huge success and was


declared "an opera without music." Critics t
claimed it was comprised of "blubbering baby-
talk." 4
The recessional is played after the vows are
exchanged and the newly married couple is walk-
ing down the aisle as husband and wife. This tune
was .derived from the overture of Felix
Mendelssohn's opera "A Midsummer Night's
Dream" inspired by Shakespeare's play It became
customary to play this tune as the recessional
only after the death of Mendelssohn in 1847.
The wedding march has been a integral part
of wedding ceremonies for the past 150 years
and it will more than likely remain so for
many years to come.
In any case, the choice of music is
most often left up to the bride to decide,
and is as varied as the brides them-
selves.
