BEGINNING OF THE END



FOR LOCAL CRIME SPREE

Cross City Police Department Captures Two Criminals, Crimes May Be Related
Article by: Eli Loy


This story appears to begin on Saturday, December 29, 2007. Accord-
ing to Officer Matthis' report Ms. Dawn DuBois left her home at
around 7 PM. on the 28th to visit with a friend. Upon returning to her
house the following morning, she found that her residence had been
burglarized.
The perpetrator, or perpetrators, cut a screen on her back door and
then kicked the interior door open. Inside, the criminal rifled
through all of her cabinets and dressers, taking two gold watches,
and a set of diamond earrings. The suspect took a Phillips DVD and
surround sound system, with speakers, an Emerson DVD player, an
X-Box video game console with three games, and the DVD movie
"Cars" from her living room entertainment center.
The thief also helped himself to two Olympus cameras, and two
firearms. The stolen guns were described as a double-barrel shotgun,
and a rifle with a black synthetic stock, and a scope.,
SHaving finished with the house, the nefarious presonage entered a
metal storage building located on the premise by way of pushing an
air-conditioning unit out of a window. At the time of this report, it is
unknown if the thief took anything from the storage shed.
Officer Robert Matthis, with the assistance of Deputy Tumlin, was
able to retrieve fingerprints from the A/C unit, as well as from the
mirrored closet door inside the residence. Investigator Owens recov-
ered a shoe print from the A/C unit at the point where the miscreant
entered the residence.


The plot thickens...


On January 6,2008, Officer Ronnie Edmonds was dispatched to the
residence of Pat and Nancy Carol Gooding in response to an Armed
Robbery Dispatch advised that the caller had said that they were be-
ing held at gun point.
When Officer Edmonds arrived at the scene, he met Mr. Gooding at
the entrance of his home. Mr. Gooding stated that his wife and he
were watching their television when they heard a loud noise. Mr.


Gooding went to locate the source of the sound and encountered
three assailants.

..Pat I will blo

your head off!"

Armed Assailant

The suspects moved through the kitchen and into the hallway Ms.
Carol Gooding was told by one of the hoodlums not to turn around,
and was threatened to be shot. Mr. Gooding at this time came through
the kitchen wielding a knife. The gunman snarled, "Pat I will blow
your head off!"
Whilst Mr. and Mrs. Gooding were being held at gunpoint, the other
suspects went through the purse, of Mrs. Gooding, removing some
$500.00 in cash, as well as her wallet, credit cards, and other items of
identification.
Their nefarious deed done, the assailants fled the home, leaving via
the front door and turning South. The Cross City Correctional K9
unit was summoned into action to track the subjects.
Officers, in searching for the suspects, discovered on NE 220 Avenue
a .270 caliber rifle, with a black synthetic stock and a scope, matching
the description of the rifle stolen from the DuBois residence.
Subsequently, witness statements led authorities to arrest Desmond
Juray'Lee, who was charged wvith two counts of Armed Burglary, one
count of Grand Theft, and two counts of Criminal Mischief, he is also
suspected of involvement in the invasion of Gooding residence.
Shortly thereafter, Roderick Robinson was arrested and charged with
Home Invasion, and Armed Robbery According to Cross City Police
Chief Wesley Jones more arrests are pending.


BUBBLEGUM BANDIT BITES OFF


MORE THAN HE CAN CHEW
Article and photographs by: Eli Loy
On Friday, December 14, 2007 a break-in was reported to the Cross City Po-
lice Department at Cross City Auto. Officer Bob Owens, arriving on scene,
met with John Driggers and was shown one of the bay doors with the window
broken out.
Inside the door to the office had also been forced and the interior rummaged
through. Two bubblegum machines were found to be missing, as well as the
contents of March of Dimes and Toys for Tots cans. Also found on the scene
was a car stereo. The stereo had not been taken from any of the vehicles at
Cross City Auto, and was presumed to have been left by the burglar.


Officer Owens was returning to the scene, having left to gather his finger-
printing equipment, when he was called by Deputy Sullivan. He was informed
by the Deputy that Creekside Farm Supply had also been burgled.
The officer arrived at Creekside and spoke with Glen Osteen, who said there
didn't seem to be anything taken. Officer Owens advised him of the missing
bubblegum machines at Cross City Auto, causing Mr. Osteen to notice that
his machine had vanished as well. Owens then returned to Cross City Auto to
dust the area for fingerprints, and contacted ...Continued on Page 3

A winning ticket
torn up?
Back in October, I suggested tt a winning ticket for
Al Gore would be to choose Barak Obama as his vice-presiden-
tial candidate. I offered this advice to Big Al, free of charge, in
exchange for which I received a form letter asking for a dona-
tion to some fund to stop global warming, or at least blame it oin
George Bush.
Now, it turns out that Big Al probably won't be seeking'
the presidency, having achieved secular sainthood for his
prophetic warning that the oceans will flood Florida's coastal
regions even before the developers can recoup their investments
in high-rise hotels and condos. (For those interested in re-in-
vesting their real estate dollars, I still have a few shares of the
Suwannee River bridge available.)
However, far from leaving Obama out in the cold, he
could have teamed up with Hillary Clinton and put together the
Democratic Party's "dream ticket" for 2008-except for one
thing: Obama has been giving Hillary more trouble than Bill
ever has, at least recently.
Don't take my word for it, look what happened in Iowa.
Obama didn't just beat Ms. Clinton, he humiliated her. She even
finished a fraction of a point behind the Breck girf...excuse me,
behind former Senator John Edwards.
Perhaps I'm sticking my neck out, because I'm writing
this before the New Hampshire primary happens, but I agree
with the pollsters who predict that Obama will best the Hilld-
abeest one more time in the Granite State.
What a pity. A year ago, therein lay the makings of the
party's ideal ticket-a virtual short track to the White House.
Hillary Clinton, co-president for eight years along with her hus-
band Bill, and the charismatic young Senator from Illinois as
'her VP. A woman and an ethnic minority on the same ticket,
and (to paraphrase an old Southern Democrat, the late George
C. Wallace) "not a dime's worth of difference" between the two
of them.
But something terrible happened in Iowa, and as you
read this, possibly also in New Hampshire. The charismatic
young senator took the seasoned feminist politco to the wood-
shed. How, now, could she expect him to occupy the number two
spot on her ticket?
And by the same token, how could Hillary Rodham
Clinton, until recently regarded as heir-apparent to at least her
party's nomination, and in all probability the presidency, be ex-
pected. to occupy the second spot behind this charming young
upstart?
I'm not saying it couldn't happen. Iowa and New Hamp-
shire are just the opening gambits in the primary season.
Michigan, South Carolina, Florida and "Super Tuesday" are yet
to come, so anything could happen. We could see Hillary's ma-
chine getting.into high gear and leaving Obama looking like a
flash in the pan.
But don't count on it. Even if Hillary regains the front
runner status to which she has long felt entitled; she will find it
hard to overcome the vulnerability her showings in Iowa and
(Perhaps) New Hampshire have indicated.
At this point, it's still anybody's guess who the Repub-
lican candidate will be, for which reason I'm not sticking my
neck out. John McCain has the endorsement of the influential
Manchester Union Leader, but he is neck and neck with Mitt
Romney in a poll released on January 6.
Mike. Huckabee took Iowa by storm, much.to the cha-'
grin of-candidates who had outspent him, that being most of
them. But his prospects for New Hampshire look much like the
Miami Dolphins' prospects for the Super Bowl. Rudy Giuliani
might rise to the occasion, but his prospects aren't looking all
that good.
With the Democrats hemorrhaging and the Republi-
cans wallowing in uncertainty, it looks like it could be a most
interesting election year.

Continued From Front Page...Officer Edmonds to have him conduct a sweep of he area for the heisted vending machines.
Officer Edmonds located one of the vending machines from Creekside behind Family Dollar. The machine had been destroyed
and the change had been taken from it. Officer Edmonds then located the two bubblegum machines from Cross City Auto be-
hind the old Papa's Burgers. The machines had also been broken open and the quarters removed. The officer also found blood
on these machines, indicating that the suspect had been cut.
Officer Owens then received a call from a citizen who said that Scott Burnett had been in front of their house after midnight,
with a car stereo under his arm. When asked, by the witness, what he was doing with the radio, Burnett said that he was go-
ing to trade the radio for a "20-sack." He was then seen to depart in the direction of Cross City Auto. The witness' description
of the radio matched the one found at Cross City Auto.
Officer Owens contacted the jail for copies of Scott Burnett's fingerprints. While waiting on the prints, he was called by Mr.
Driggers. Mr. Driggers advised the officer that April Burnett had the clothes that Scott had been wearing at the time, and that
they had blood on them. The officer retrieved the articles of apparel, and not only found blood, but also found them to contain
2 file cabinet keys, 3 drink machiine keys, as well as some change. The items, as well as the clothing, were taken as evidence.
When asked about Scott Burnett's location, April Burnett advised Officer Owens that he was at work in Trenton, and would-
n't return until 7 or 8 P.M. Officer Owens then processed the prints taken from the various machines, and the Toys for Tots
*can. Upon comparison, prints taken from these sources matched Burnett's. Officer Owens then contacted Scott Burnett's pro-
bation officer to assist in locating him. The probation officer took him to Burnett's residence at 7:30 P.M. at which time the of-
ficer asked Burnett to come with him for questioning.
Arriving at City Hall, Investigator Oneal met them, and advised Burnett that he wanted to talk to him about the Creekside
Burglary Officer Owens advised Scott Burnett of his rights, and questioned him about the break-ins at Creekside, the Dixie
County High School, and Cross City Auto.
Burnett denied having perpetrated said acts. When advised that his fingerprints had been recovered at the scene, he said that
he had been there looking for a job a few weeks ago. He also said that the witness had lied about seeing him that evening. In-
vestigator Oneal noticed that a cut on the top of his finger. Burnett replied that he had smashed it at work. He also denied
that the blood found at the crime scenes was his.
Burnett was arrested and charged With Burglary, and Grand Theft. he was also charged with Violation of Probation. Blood
samples have been sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for laboratory analysis.

KIDSHOOTS DAD
IN NEW YEAR'S
DAY ACCIDENT

A Cross City man was shot and wounded in a New Year's
Day hunting accident in the Jena Unit of the Big Bend
Wildlife Management Area,
Larry Edwin Ward, 39, was small game hunting with his
two sons. The trio decided to move from their hunting
spot to another location, according to Florida Fish and


Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) investigators.
As the three started walking with Ward in the lead, the
younger son, an 8-year-old juvenile, tripped and fell, dis-
charging the single shot .410 gauge shotgun he was car-
rying. The buckshot struck Ward in the lower left leg,
breaking his tibia.

The two boys got help from other hunters in the area
who called 911. Dixie County EMS transported Ward to
Cross City where he was airlifted to Shands Hospital in
Gainesville for treatment.
FWC investigators continue to investigate the incident.

Spotlight On Dixie


FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH
NEWS
01/06/08
What a beautiful day God gave us today.
Our crowd was large, we had
lots of visitors, and the fellowship was de-
lightful. The Spirit was strong
and moving among the crowd. Bro. Jackie
preached two good messages, the special
music was great in both services and after
choir practice we all gathered in the fel-
lowship hall for ice cream floats. We have
such sweet
fellowship at
Faith.
December
was a very
busy month
with all the
Christmas
celebrations,
parties, etc. First we had a choir party at
the Crenshaws on Dec. 13th with
22 people attending. We gathered around
the piano and sang, had wonderful
food brought by different choir members
and the fellowship was just superb.
A good time was had by all. Then on
Thursday night before Christmas our
group of Senior Citizens gathered at the
Homestead Restaurant for our annual
Seniors Christmas get-together. We had 24
in attendance for that and again,
the food was great, as it always is at the
Homestead, and we all just enjoyed talking
and visiting with each other. On the 16th
of December our young children in the
AWANA group did our Christmas service


with lots of songs. Bro. Leonard is doing a
great job leading our AWANA group and
Sis.
Debbie Phillips has really done a great job
teaching them songs, etc. The
Christmas program was very special and
enjoyed by all. These young ones
will amaze you. You're always welcome to
come out on Wednesday night and
bring your little ones and any neighbor
children you may know to be a part
of this program. The children love it.
We are looking forward to a won-
derful year in 2008. Bro. Jim is doing
a
fantastic job as song leader, Kacie is
loving being able to play the bass gui-
tar full-time, Sis. Chris and Sis. Dot
are doing wonderful jobs alternating
the piano playing for us, Sis. Debbie
does a really good job on
the organ and we've just got lots of
changes this year and they're all
working out really great.
Remember this week to pray for the less
fortunate, the sick, the ones in the
hospitals, the ones going for surgery and
especially the lost. If each of us
could bring just one person to church with
us, think of how many souls might be
saved just because of our one invitation.
Surely you have a friend or neighbor
who needs to hear about Jesus. Give it a
try God will bless you for it. We
pray that your week will be ,safe, happy
and healthy and may the New Year be
especially good to you.


MOST SENIORS DON'T USE THEIR
MEDICARE RIGHTS


People with Medicare have rights. Unfortunately, most seniors don't act upon their Medicare
rights because they don't know they have them. As a result, they may miss out on important
opportunities to help 'direct their health care. Take, for example, hospital discharges. How
many times have you heard someone tell you that they are being discharged from the hospital
and they think they are too sick to leave? What would you tell them or what would you do if
this was happening to you?
People with Medicare have the right to appeal a hospital discharge. They can do this even
when they are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Organization (MAO). Generally the hospital
will give the patient a form called "The Important Message from Medicare" at adriiission and
prior to discharge. After a patient gets "The Important Message from Medicare" form from
the hospital just prior to intended discharge, and they disagree with the discharge, they must
call the Medicare Rights Hot-
line by the discharge date
listed on "The Important
Message from Medicare"
form in order to appeal the
discharge. They do not have
to leave the hospital once
this call is made.

Calling the Medicare Rights
Hotline starts a medical re- Q w' t
view process which decides ur on
whether or not the patient
needs to stay in the hospital.
This free service is paid by. Medicare and conducted by FMQAI, the Medicare Quality Im-
provement Organization for the state of Florida. The patient continues to stay in the hospital
while FMQAI reviews the medical record. FMQAI will let the patient and the hospital know
what it decides.
Remember:
You do NOT have to leave the hospital
* You do NOT have to pay for the extra days you are in the hospital while FMQAI re-
views your record
If you have questions regarding hospital discharges, call the toll-free Medicare Rights Hotline.
at 1-866-800-8757 or visit www.Florida-Medicare.org. Toll-free TTY lines for hearing impaired
callers are also available at 1-866-800-8751.

SRWMD DECLARES FIRST-
EVER PHASE II WATER
SHORTAGE ORDER WITH
MANDATORY
RESTRICTIONS

LIVE OAK, FL, January 8, 2008 The Suwan-
nee River Water Management District gov-
erning board today issued the agency's first-
ever Phase II Water Shortage Order which in-
cludes mandatory water-use restrictions
that will become effective Districtwide on
April 7, 2008.

The order includes restrictions, and some ex-
emptions, for all water-use categories includ-
ing residential, commercial, industrial and
agricultural.

Between now and April 7, District staff will
meet with city and county officials to coordi-
nate implementation and enforcement guide-
lines. They also will meet with commercial
and industrial interests to explain the
order and to solicit input, as they did with
agricultural producers in late December.

The unprecedented action was taken in re-
sponse to extremely low groundwater levels
experienced throughout the 15-county region


GOSPEL SING IN
CHIEFLAND

THE DIXIE ECHOES ARE COMING TO CHIEFLAND,
FLORIDA. THIS LEGENDARY QUARTET WILL BE
APPEARING ON JANUARY 17, 2008 AT THE FIRST
UNITED METHODIST CHURCH, 707 N MAIN
STREET.
For over 48 years, The Dixie Echoes have been delivering
the good news of the Gospel through their spiritually up-
lifting musical ministry. Since their formation in
1960, The Dixie Echoes have enjoyed much success and
are probably best remembered for their performances on
the Gospel Singing Jubilee, which aired in the late.60's
and early 70's. The quartet consists of long-time lead vo-
calist Randy Shelnut, baritone Randy Shelnut Jr., tenor
Dallas Rogers, and bass vocalist Pat Barker. The
quartet is accompanied by award winning pianist Stewart
Varnado. Although considered to be one of the pioneer
Gospel groups, The Dixie Echoes have maintained
a refreshing vocal style and.a diverse song selection that.
appeal to audiences of
all ages.


This concert will
begin at 7:30 PM. j

tional informa-
tion regarding

during the current drought, coupled with
predictions that the drought will intensify
over the next several months.

"Even before the mandatory restrictions go
into effect, we urge all citizens to continue to
voluntarily conserve water," said David Still,
District deputy executive director.

The District is suffering its eighth-driest 24-
month period since 1932, with a rainfall
deficit of 28.7 inches.

Forty-nine wells set new December lows and
17 wells set new historic lows. Twenty-three
emergency permits for dry wells were issued
in December, for a total of 157 issued between
April 1 and December 31, 2007.

Although recent heavy rains in Georgia have
led to slight increases in some local river lev-
els, the Suwannee at Branford is still below
the 10th percentile, and the Santa Fe River
near Fort White is about an inch below its
former historic low. (The unofficial level to-
day, January 8, is 20.93 feet above mean sea
level; the historic low was 21.02 feet, recorded
in November 2002.)

as well as water conservation and landscap-
ing tips, are available at www.mysuwan-

God's Word so ably proclaimed by Bro. Billy, who chose
his texts from Philippians 3:13-14 and 1st Corinthians
11:23-26.

We will have our Church Business Meeting on Wednes-

who was a POW of the Japanese for four years; It was
an honor to have them with us, as is the case with all

REPORT FORECASTS

DISMAL TO STAGNANT
FLORIDA RE SIDENTIAL

REAL ESTATE MARKET
THROUGH 2010


GAINESVILLE, Fla. January 7, 2008 A new report'released
today by Attorneys' Title Insurance Fund Inc. (The Fund)
and posted on www.nfarea.com projects a slight rebound for
Gainesville's existing single-family housing market in 2009.
Projections for the area, however, also foresee a bottoming
out of Alachua County's new single-family homes market in
2009 and a continued drop in Marion County's new single-
family homes market until 2009.

The 2008 Fund Real Estate Forecast, commissioned by Flori-
da-based Attorneys' Title Insurance Fund's Consumer Educa-
tion Campaign, was created by economist Hank Fishkind,
* Ph.D. of Fishkind & Associates, Inc., using The Fund's exten-
sive online system of deed data for more than 30 Florida
counties. The report provides a snapshot of the national eco-
nomic outlook and 33 county-specific forecasts (including
Alachua and Marion counties) for 2008 through 2010, as well
as a section detailing how actual 2007 data compared to pro-
jections that were made in last
year's Fund 2007 Real Estate Forecast report.
"Florida tends to generate more jobs and population growth
than any other state in the Southeastern United States, so
turnaround for some parts of Florida especially in Central
Florida will take place ahead of many other states in the
Southeast like Miami-Dade and Fort Myers," explained Dr.
Fishkind. "The condominium problems in Miami-Dade are
unprecedented and are probably the worst since 1975 likely
creating more than a five-year supply problem. In Fort Myers
and Cape Coral, there is a significant imbalance with single-


family homes built to speculative excess that will probably
result in a three to four year problem. Overall, Orlando has
the strongest market in Florida, followed by the Tampa Bay
area and 1-4 corridor, but both Alachua County and Marion
County are Still in considerably better shape than many oth-
er areas."


Marion County: Existing condominiums began to drop
- in 2006 following 251 closings in 2005, but the market is ex-
Spected to return to its 2001 level by 2009. Average existing
condominium prices will remain flat.


*Note: Data for the Real Estate Index has a two-month lag

Additional findings include:

New Single-Family Home Market
* Alachua County: The new single-family home market
is not expected to bottom out until 2009, when 660 new homes
are projected to close in comparison to 1,000 closings in 2005.
The average home price is expected to remain constant.
* Marion County: New single-family homes began drop-
ping in 2005 and will continue until 2009, with the average
cost per home remaining constant for several years.
Existing Single-Family Home Market
* Alachua County: Existing single-family homes are pre-
dicted to-see a slight rebound in 2009, though not strong
enough to bring the market back to its 2005 levels. The aver-
age price of $200,000 is expected to remain for the foreseeable
future.
* Marion County: A slight rebound for existing single-
family homes is predicted for 2009, though the average price
of $180,000 is expected to remain for the coming years.

New Condominium Market
* Alachua County: Following the significant drop expect-
ed for 2008, the new condominium market should see a slight
rebound. Prices dropped in 2007* and are projected to remain
flat in the years following.
* Marion County: 2005 saw a peak of new condominium
sales with 120 closings, and, despite a drop in 2006 and 2007*,
the market will see historic levels of near-zero closings by
2008. An average price of $150,000 is expected to remain
through 2010.

Existing Condominium Market
* Alachua County: The existing condominium market,
which began its drop in 2006, is expected to continue through
2008, followed by a slight rebound. The average price will re-
main around $120,000 through 2010..

TRADITION:
PREPARING
FOR THE BIG
GAME

(ARA) If there ever was a
quintessential American
holiday, it would have to be
Super Bowl Sunday. While
not on any official calen-
dar, it is a time when peo-
ple gather with friends and
family, joined in a common
experience.


According to Art Institute
of New York City Chef In-
structor Russell Moss, cer-
tified executive chef, the
ideal food for this all-Amer-
ican event is, yes, ham-
| burgers and apple pie; but
not just the run of the mill
versions of these staples.
In the hands of a profes-
sional chef, these comfort-
ing foods take on a whole
new dimension.


A major consideration
when choosing the menu is
to free the host or hostess
to enjoy the game along
with guests. Therefore, ad-
vance preparation is criti-
cal.


scale versions of two lettuce
American classics, made 1 thinly sliced red onion
with easy-to-find ingredi-
ents. Bake burgers in a pre-hea


"Croissants are a little 'sex-
ier' than plain old ham-
burger Abuns, and they cer-
tainly taste better," he says.
"If there isn't a great bak-
ery nearby, frozen ones are
fine; just warm them up
right before assembling."

Croissant Burgers
(The ultimate no-ketchup
hamburger.)
For the burgers:

2 pounds ground beef
2 tablespoons Worcester-
shire Sauce
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons finely diced
celery
Mix all ingredients togeth-
er. Shape into 4-ounce balls.
Pat down to small patties.
Set aside.
For the sauce:
8 ounce jar store-bought
tartar sauce
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
Mix tartar sauce and mus-
tard. Set aside.

Garnish:


at-


ed very hot (550 degrees)
oven for 10 minutes, or un-
til done to taste. Place each
mini-burger on a split
croissant. Top with sauce,
lettuce and onion. Makes 10
.(4-ounce burgers).

Sesame Cole Slaw

As a side dish, made up to
two days in advance,
Sesame Cole Slaw is a
healthful alternative to
French fries.

Ingredients:

1 pound shredded cabbage
(pre-shredded from the su-
per market is fine)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon toasted
sesame seeds

Preparation:
Toss ingredients together
and serve. The flavor im-
proves when the ingredi-
ents have time to blend.
Makes 10 to 15 -- 4-ounce
servings


Apple Butter Ice
Cream Cake

Chef Moss wanted to create
an "Apple Pie" type dessert
but one that doesn't de-
mand the effort most hosts

don't have time for these
days. He says this dessert.
captures the flavor and the
spirit of the American clas
sic, but is simple and easy
to make.

Ingredients:
2 pints good quality vanilla
ice cream
8 ounces apple butter
1 8-ounce bag shredded
sweetened coconut

Preparation:
Toast coconut in a 350 de-
gree oven until golden
brown. Pour into a 9-inch
cake pan.

Place cake pan with co-
conut in freezer. Soften 2
pints vanilla ice cream.
Add apple butter, mixing
lightly in a swirl pattern.
Pack into cake pan with co
conut on bottom.


(coconut will be on top).

Serve in wedges.

Makes 16 -- 4-ounce serv-
ings.

Personally, Chef Moss
would prefer to be outside
actively participating in
sports rather than inside
. being a spectator, but, he
says, "never let indiffer-
ence to the game get in the
way of a good meal!"

AMERICANS WAKE UP TO THE
POWER OF SLEEP

(ARA) A majority of Americans agree
that nothing beats a good night's sleep for
good health -- not even regular exercise
and proper diet. The quality and amount
of sleep you get every night are crucial
factors in determining whether your body
and mind are functioning at their best.

"There is no denying the importance and
restorative nature of sleep," says Barry
Bittman, M.D., neurologist, author and
member of Tempur-Pedic's Wellness Advi-
sory Board. "However, what most Ameri-
cans don't realize is that even if they are
getting the
right
amount of
sleep, they
still may
not be get-
ting the
quality of
sleep they
need."


According
to Tempur-
Pedic's 2007
National
Wellness
Survey, an
indepen-
dently re-
searched
study for
mattress.
manufactur-
er Tempur-
Pedic Inter-
national
Inc., three
out of four
Americans
(76 percent)


IL


say a good night's sleep makes them feel
younger, helping to refresh their bodies
and minds. The study also shows that
Americans believe their sleeping surface
affects their quality of sleep, with 9 out of
10 considering their investment in a mat-
tress also as investment in their well-be-
ing.

So how can you tell if you are getting the
quality, restorative sleep your body needs?
Ask yourself these three simple questions:

* Does tossing and turning keep you awake
at night? If so, you may want to look for a
sleeping surface that comfortably supports
and cradles your body, preventing move-
ment throughout the night.

* Do you wake with aches And pains?, A,;
comfortable bed is one that cushions and
comforts the body, providing much needed
mental and physical rest and stress relief.
Look for a mattress that provides proper
support, but that does not establish pres-
sure points that can aggravate existing
pains and create new ones.

* Are you tired and irritable during the
day? Uncomfortable twisting and turning
at night results in fragmented sleep, pre-
venting you from functioning at your peak
during the day. A comfortable, supportive
sleep surface will not only improve your
sleep experience, but also your productivi-
ty and mood during the day.

The secret to well-being, physical and emo-
tional rejuvenation and an improved daily
outlook just might start in bed. With such
great health benefits, isn't it time that all
of us got a great night's sleep?

getting a good night's sleep visit www.Tem-
pur-pedic.com.

HINGSON FIRST TO OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCE
CANDIDACY FOR STATE ATTORNEY

Todd Hingson, an
Assistant State At-
torney and a 5th
generation North
Floridian, is the
first to officially
announce that he
will be a candidate
to replace retiring
State Attorney Jer-
ry Blair in August.

"I am excited to
make it official,"
Hingson said. "I
will be a candidate
for State Attorney, and I am running to win!"

The State Attorney is the elected chief criminal prosecu-
tor, and Hingson is running in a seven county judicial.
circuit, the Third Judicial Circuit, which includes Co-
lumbia, Dixie, Hamilton, Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee
and Taylor counties.

Hingson grew up on a family farm in Luraville, a small
farming community located between Live Oakrand Mayo.
Hingson is a graduate of Suwannee High School. Short-
ly after graduation, Hingson was elected State President
of the FFA (Future Farmers of America), and the follow-
ing year he was elected to serve the nearly half a million
members of the FFA as National Vice President. Hing-
son's FFA service took him to 40 of the 50 states, Japan
and China promoting agriculture and honing his leader-
ship and speaking skills.

After his FFA service, Hingson enrolled in the Universi-
ty of Florida where he obtained his Bachelor of Science
with Honors in Agricultural Economics. At UF, Hingson
was inducted into the university's leadership honorary,
Florida Blue Key, and was an active member of the Al-
pha Gamma Rho (AGR) agricultural fraternity.

Hingson attended law school at the Mississippi College
School of Law in Jackson, Mississippi where he earned
an academic scholarship and graduated in the top 10% of
his law school class. In law school, Hingson was elected
Chief Justice of the Honor Court and was on the law
school's Moot Court Board.

Hingson worked his first two years as a prosecutor for
State Attorney Bill Cervone in the 8th Judicial Circuit
where Hingson handled juvenile, misdemeanor and
felony cases, and did stints in the Alachua, Levy and
Gilchrist.offices. In 2002, Hingson was able to move
home when Jerry Blair hired him as an Assistant State
Attorney in the 3rd Judicial Circuit. Hingson's first as-
signment as a prosecutor in the 3rd Circuit was as the
Dixie Counity Division Chief in 2002 and 2003.


In 2004, Hingson was promoted to the Columbia County
office to serve as a Felony Division Chief. Hingson's du-
ties included supervising felony prosecutors, as well as
handling Special Prosecution cases such as homicide
and child sex offenses. Hingson has been the lead prose-
cutor on several high profile cases, including the prose-
cution of serial rapist William Williams, and Gregory
Platt who was responsible for the 2004 murder of Florida
Highway Patrolman Andy Brown. Both men were con-
victed at trial and sentenced to life in prison without the
possibility of parole.

In October of 2007, Hingson took over as Division Chief
of the Taylor County State Attorney's Office in Perry
Hingson is responsible for supervising the office and
prosecuting felony offenses, including special prosecu-
tion cases in Taylor County.

Hingson is an active member of the Rotary Club and is
an Agency Coordinator for the Suwannee Valley United
Way. Hingson is a member of the Orchard Community
Baptist Church in Lake City. Hingson resides in Colum-
bia County with his wife of 10 years, Angle, and their
two children, Ellie (5) and Drew (2).

"I truly believe that. our State Attorney should be a per-
son of integrity, with proven experience as a prosecutor,
and with a vision to provide long-term leadership for the
prosecutor's office." Hingson said. "I respectfully ask
for your support. It has been a life-long goal of mine to
be State Attorney, and if elected, I will work tirelessly to
keep our communities safe and to hold defendants ac-
countable for the crimes they commit."

You can learn more about Todd Hingson and his cam-
paign by visiting his website at www.toddhingson.com.
The primary election for State Attorney will be held Au-
gust 26th of this year.

DOES YOUR
INFORMA-
TION MATCH
UP?

By: Paul D. Barnes
Social Security Regional
Commissioner, Atlanta,
Ga


Tax time is right
around the corner. Soon
you will be receiving
your W-2s from your em-
ployer(s) and tax infor-
mation from the IRS.
Carefully check
your name, Social Secu-
rity number and all of
the data on your W-2s and on your Social Security card.
A mismatch could delay your tax refund and cause prob-
lems with your Social Security benefits in the future.
Such errors are easy to fix.
If you've legally changed your name due to mar-
riage, divorce, court order, or for any other reason, make
sure you change your name with Social Security by ap-
plying for a new Social Security card. Make sure you
change your name with your employer as well. If you
don't, it could cause your earnings to be improperly
recorded.
If you are the parent of a newborn, you want to
make sure that the newest family member has a Social
Security number too. Most people apply for their baby's
Social Security card while they're still in the hospital at
the same time they apply for the birth certificate. But if
you didn't, you'll need to apply for your child's Social Se-
curity number in order to claim the child as a dependent


MeCOLLUM,
JOHN WALSH:
CYBERCRIMES
AFFECT REAL
CHILD VICTIMS

-Attorney General joined
by John Walsh, host of
America's Most Wanted,'
to discuss importance of
CyberCrime Unit's initia-
tives ~

TALLAHASSEE, FL -
Attorney General Bill Mc-
Collum and America's
Most
Wanted host John Walsh
hosted a discussion today
with members of the
Attorney General's Cyber-
Crime Unit to discuss the
importance of the
CyberCrime and Cyber-
Safety initiatives and their
impact on child victims.
Joining the Attorney Gen-
eral and Walsh was the
Chief of Law Enforcement.
for
the CyberCrime Unit, who
provided information
about the nature of the
unit's investigations and.
instances where children
have been rescued as aI
result of those investiga-
tions. Also present were
victim advocates and
volunteer educators from
the Attorney General's Of-
fice who have been
presenting McCollum's 50-
minute CyberSafety pro-
gram to middle and high
school students through-
out the state.

"The startling number
of children who are vic-
timized through
cybercrimes is evidence
enough for why a heavy-
handed approach toward
internet child predators is
so important," said Attor-
ney General McCollum.
"Every single child who
can be saved from the dev-
astating impact of ,
cybercrime, is.one more
child who will not have to
live with the scars of
that victimization for the
rest of his or her life."

Information on the Cy-
berCrime Unit's investiga-
tions was provided by
Chuck.McMullen, Chief of
Law Enforcement for the
Attorney General's
CyberCrime Unit. Chief
McMullen described in-
stances where CyberCrime
investigators have 'identi-
fied or rescued child vic-
tims in danger of being
further victimized as a re-
sult of investigations into
possession of child
pornography Florida
ranks 4th in the nation for
the volume of child
pornography and the Na-
tional Center for Missing
and Exploited Children,
co-founded by John Walsh,
reports that more than
1,200 children have been
identified nationwide as
child pornography victims
since 2002.

"Attorney General Mc-
Collum's CyberCrime Unit
is a model for the
nation and the CyberSafe-
ty initiative is imperative
because knowledge is
power. I applaud his proac-
tive approach to protect
Florida and the
country's greatest resource
- our children," said John
Walsh. "Attorney
General McCollum is send-
ing a loud message to
predators everywhere that
Florida will do everything
necessary to protect kids.


His hard work in this
area is something that I
hope that Attorneys Gen-
eral from every state take
note of and use as an ex-
ample."

The Attorney General's
CyberCrime investigators
also regularly
conduct undercover inves-
tigations online where
they are approached by
internet child predators
who believe they are solic-
iting children or the
parents of those children -
for sex. National statistics
show that last
week alone, 260 children
reported being sexually so-
licited over the
internet. More than 33,000
reported online solicita-
tions have occurred
since 1998. Since October
2005, the Attorney Gener-
al's CyberCrime Unit has
made 57 arrests. Of those
individuals arrested, 10 be-
lieved they were
talking to a child online
and traveled to meet that
child for the purpose
of further sexually abus-
ing him or her. Four of
these arrests have been in
the past four months.

The conversation also
focused on the number of
students who have
received the CyberSafety
presentations and the
number who subsequently
revealed victimization to
an advocate or educator.
Launched at the
beginning of this school
year, the CyberSafety pro-
gram combines real-life
stories and examples to
help students identify the
ways they could be
victimized online and is
designed to empower chil-
dren to use the internet
safely. During the presen-
tations, the students re-
ceive information about
iturt dangers as well as
ttac ics used by online
child predators. They
also learn what constitutes
a cybercrime and how to
report it. An open line
of communication between
the students and the vic-
tim advocates is strongly
encouraged to give the op-
portunity for private dis-
closure of any offenses.

The Attorney General's
CyberCrime victim advo-
cates, led by Victim
Services Program Admin-
istrator Pamela Bennet,
also offer counseling to
any
child who discloses victim-
ization and can refer any
reported offenses to
law enforcement for inves-
tigation. During today's
discussion, the victim

more than 1,400 students

sexual advances.

Attorney General Mc-
Collum has set a goal of
bringing the critical
CyberSafety Education
message to all middle and
high schools in Florida by
the end of this school year.
More information on the
program, including

on your tax return. You'll also need it if you ever need
to apply for government benefits on behalf of the child
or your family.
To apply for a Social Security card, all you need
to do is complete a one-page application and provide
proof of identity, age, and citizenship. In the case of a
child's first card, you also need to prove that you are the
parent. For a name change, you will need to provide doc-
umentation with your old and new names.
For more information about getting a Social Se-
curity card and number for your child, or to change your
name and get a replacement card for yourself with your
updated information, visit Social Security's website at
www.socialsecurity.gov/ssnumber.
