Two women miraculous-
ly escaped serious injury
when the van they were in
overturned on Saturday, April
22, at 1:30 p.m.
According to a Florida
Highway Patrol report, Nan-
cy DeLoach Creel, 64, of


Valdosta, Ga., was driving
north on State Road 53
South, when she said a vehi-
cle cut in her path of travel,
causing her to take evasive
action to avoid a collision.
Creel left the roadway
and entered on to the grassy
shoulder on the east side.
Creel then collided with


a cement culvert with its
front, causing the vehicle to
go airborne.
Creel's 2002 Isuzu van
overturned onto its rooftop
and came to a final rest,
blocking the northbound
lanes.
FHP Trooper Kamau Bell
was the investigating officer.


MCMH's New Administrator


Is Happy With Madison


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madison.County Memori-
al Hospital has a new adminis-
trator.
After originally turning
the job down, David Aber-
crombie said that he had
changed his mind about com-
ing to Madison from Fairview,
Oklahoma for a couple of rea-
sons. A South Carolina native,
Abercrombie said that, afer
giving it more consideration,
he saw that it would gave he
and his wife a way to move
and be closer to his father-in-
law, who still lives in South
Carolina.
Abercrombie said that
there were also cultural differ-
ences, which influenced his
decision to take the job in
Madison.
"It was a better culture
fit," Abercrombie said. "I
wanted to come home to the
southeast."
Abercrombie had been of-
fered more money to stay in
Oklahoma, as well as having
his benefits package enhanced
but soon changed his mind


mostly because of being near-
er to his family in South Car-
olina.
Ambercrombie said that
he enjoys the new job in Madi-
son.
"All the raw material nec-
essary is here in Madison to
build one heck of a really good
hospital," he said. "The fun of
being a hospital administrator
is building something."
Ambercrombie said that

I respectfully announce
that I am a candidate for re-
election to the office of Coun-
ty Commissioner, District 2.
It has been an honor and plea-
sure to serve the people of
Madison County and District
2 for the past four years. I
would like very much to con-

my top priorities. As you
know, we have widened and
resurfaced several miles of
highway. We have new
paving that is scheduled to be-
gin soon.
I am not in favor of any
new taxes. We can't afford
tax increase. We must spend
our money wisely so that
there will be no need to in-
crease taxes.
We have made progress in
economic development within
the last four years, providing
jobs for our people. This re-
mains one of my top priori-

Scholarship Program Receives Letter


Of Approval From County Commission


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Vicky Peterson, a former
Madison County educator,
was on hand for the April 19
county commission meeting
and presented them with infor-
mation about the Citizens for a
Progression Madison County
Program.
The program is responsi-
ble for a scholarship for needy
students in Madison County. It


was formed by Peterson in
2002 and was put on the back-
burners, while Peterson fin-
ished her doctorate work in
college.
The students must be the
first in their families who have
attended college and who have
attended Madison County
High School all four years.
Peterson asked that the
commission give their bless-
ing to the program with a let-


ter of support, which will be
presented to other organiza-
tions, such as the United Way,
when they allocate funding to
non-profit organizations, such
as Citizens for a Progressive
Madison County.
Board chairman Ronnie
Moore said that the letter
could be approved by consen-
sus of the board. The board
agreed to approve the letter by
consensus.

Lake Frances OR Lake Francis?


Wasn't Down


Home Days Fun?
Except for the rain, Down Home Days was perfect. And,
then, I have learned in life to never complain about the rain. It
could get worse.
We could have no rain, as some countries do. The rain
could have come earlier and we would have had "no parade." I
try to look on the bright side of things and realize that every-
thing happens for a reason, and the rain came after a wonderful
parade and a few hours of sunshine.
The Chamber and the Down Home Days Committe are to
be thanked for their time and effort into mak-
ing the entire weekend event so special.
A special congratulations goes to
Tim Sanders, the 2006 "Madison
County Citizen of the Year." Tim is
such an outstanding example of
what Madison County citizens are
and why this is the best county in
Florida.
Tim received his plaque at the
Madison Gazebo Tuesday evening, .
April 18, and I was proud to have
been the other nominee for 2006.
That, in itself, was my honor.
Tim is such a caring young man,
and one who gives back to his home Tim Sanders
county. He portrays Johnny Apple-.
seed at area schools, and is a big supporter of other organiza-
tions in this county. He is very unselfish with his time, and the
honor was well earned.
The parade was great.
I sat on my parent's front porch with my father, Emerald,
Lisa, and a bunch of grandchildren to watch the parade as we so
often have done in years past. The view is the best, and the pa-
rade was so good this year. Dad and I sipped on vanilla milk
shakes as we watched the parade, and waved at friends and
neighbors as they went by. Emerald and Lisa were on hand to
take pictures, and you will be seeing some smiling faces in the
photos coming soon.
The addition to this year's event was two country stars,
brought here with the effort of Paula Arnold, President of the
Madison County Chamber of Commerce, and her mother, Bet-
ty Everett, of WMAF. It was special to have Jett Williams,
daughter of former Grand Ole' Opry Star Hank Williams, and in
addition, another country star, David Frizzell.
I especially enjoyed the dancing on the streets, where two
of our grandchildren, (Cheltsie and Brooke), performed, along
with many beautiful young ladies. I also watched the Dog
Contest, where they entered their "large" dog, Katie. Katie, a
St. Bernard, won second place, and just standing on the court-
house square, and looking over the streets made me, once again,
realize how truly great it is to be a Madison County born-and-
bred citizen. It wasn't too many years ago, 1997 to be exacts
when we watched part of downtown Madison burn during
Down Home Days. But, we have all bounced back from that
day, and are closer than ever as a community.
Every October, we celebrate "Make A Difference Day" in
America. But, in Madison County, everyday is "Make A Dif-
ference Day."
"Make a Difference Day" has a simple mission: Put your
cares on hold for one day to care for someone else."
I think everyday should be "Make A Difference Day." We
should always put ourselves last, and others first.
I think this world would be a better place than it is, if we all
took this to heart.
Let's try to do just that.
Let your pledge this week be to "Make A Difference" in
someone else's life.
I challenge you to do this, and I will continue to join in the
effort, also.

he feels he has clicked with the staff at MCMH.
"It's going to take some time to get to know the people," he
said, "but I am very much of a family-centered person. That's
the impression I get of the staff. We have a lot of the same val-
ues."
Ambercrombie said that one of the things he wants people
to realize is that the hospital has a tremendous economic impact
on the community. The hospital employs 120 people and brings
as much as five million dollars a year into the economy, he said.
Ambercrombie said that one of his goals as an administrator
will be to continually improve the economic impact.
When asked if he has felt welcomed to the community by
the residents, Ambercrombie answered, "Oh, mercy yes!"
He said that his wife had noted that the only thing the peo-
ple of Madison County have not done for them so far is to tuck
them in at night.
Abercrombie has worked in various aspects of healthcare
since 1973. He earned his bachelor's degree from the Universi-
ty of Alabama at Tuscaloosa and received his Master of Business
Administration, with a concentration in Management, from Dal-
las Baptist University in Dallas, Texas.
Abercrombie is a board certified healthcare executive and is
a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives.
He and his wife, Cheryl, have four adult children who live
in Texas.

Every true Madison County resident kno s that there has
been a heated debate over the proper spelling of this communi-
ty's local lake.
Is Madison's hometown lake, Lake "Frances" or Lake E
"Francis?"
Well, after doing some research, both ways might be the
correct way of spelling. --. v
Around the lake, right across from the Florida Davis play-
ground, there is the word "Frances", imprinted right in front of F 1
the dock where residents can fish, or just enjoy the breathtaking
view.
Additionally, not the actual road that encircles the commu-
nity's lake, Lake Shore Drive, but one of the roads next to this
particular street, which is visible from Duval Street/ U.S. Hwy
53 is named "Fitncis."
All of this information might bring some residents clarity to
the popular community discussion, or it might cau'e even more
confusion on the topic.
Either way, the heated debates and discussions will contin-
ue!

To Whom It May Concern:
I would like to say I met the nicest people in Madison Coun-
ty. I worked on a bread route for Flowers (Sunbeam) Baking
Co. from 1964 to 1985. I called on all the. stores, schools and
restaurants in Madison, Lee, Pinetta and Cherry Lake. I would
see Mr. Tommy Greene out in the mornings.
I would leave Valdosta, GA about 3:00 in the morning. It
was a long route, but the people were so nice. I would like to
see them again.

members of the sheriff office's Felony
Interdiction and Specialized
Tactics team and other assisting offi-
cers before the law enforcement officers
converged on the residence at approxi-.
mately 10:37 AM. Upon their arrival, Lt.
Joost approached the front door with
Deputy Alan R. Whigham, while
Sergeant Freddie A. Register, Corporal
David E.
Harper and Deputy Jason 'G. Whit-
field secured the perimeter of the resi-
dence. The officers immediately heard
movement inside the residence but there
was no response to Lt. Joosts' knocks on
the door.
Lt. Joost repeatedly announced
"Sheriff's Department!" and the team
members were in the process of forcing
entry into the residence when Gee's girl-


friend, Christine Roshelle Alexander,
eventually opened the front door.
As the team members entered the
residence, they observed another male
subject laying on the living room couch.
Lt. Joost informed Alexander that
they had probable cause to believe that
Gee was inside the residence and that he
would place her under arrest for obstruc-
tion if she provided false information.
Alexander did not respond when
asked where Gee was, therefore Lt. Joost
initiated a search of the residence with
Corporal Harper covering him.
Although they heard movement in
the far southeast bedroom, Lt. Joost and
Corporal Harper continued to clear each
room they passed as a safety precaution.
Throughout the residence, Lt. Joost
continued to announce "Cedrick, this is


the sheriff's office!", "We have warrants
for your arrest!" and "You need to come
out so no one gets hurt!"
As Lt. Joost and Corporal Harper
were preparing ,to enter the southeast
bedroom, they heard glass shattering and
the perimeter officers confronting Gee.
Investigation revealed that Deputy
Whitfield observed Gee exiting the win-
dow and he intercepted him and held him
at gunpoint until Sergeant Register and
Deputy Whigham also converged on
him.
Deputy Whigham cuffed Gee without in-
cident.
Gee was then transported to the
Madison County Jail for processing.
Alexander was given verbal warn-
ings for obstructing law enforcement of-
ficers and harboring a fugitive.

Saturday night. Sunday morning and Sundar evening at Mid-

Carniewski had a propensity towards violence.
At approximately 2:20 p.m., Lt. Joost was conducting sur-
veillance of the D.C.E parking lot when he observed a maroon
vehicle driving through town. He attempted to intercept this ve-
hicle when he observed a maroon Windstar van pull into the east
parking lot of the Greenville Park.
As Lt. Joost approached this vehicle, he observed Carniews-
ki looking at him from the front passenger seat.
Carniewski was making constant furtive movements while
Lt. Joost pulled his patrol vehicle beside his door. After it be-
came apparent to him that Lt. Joost was a law enforcement offi-
cer by his sheriff's department t-shirt, weapons and badge,
Carniewski continued his suspicious movements. Lt. Joost pro-
duced his taser, pointed it at Carniewski and informed him that
he was under arrest for active arrest warrants from Lowndes
County Sheriff's Office.
He then handcuffed Carniewski while he remained inside
the vehicle.
Lt. Joost identified the driver of the van as being Carniews-
ki's wife. After securing Carniewski in his patrol vehicle, Lt.
Joost contacted the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office and con-
firmed the Lowndes County arrest warrants for Theft By Taking
and Theft By Conversion.
Detective Stryde Jones of the Lowndes County Sheriff's Of-
fice also informed Lt. Joost that the van that Carniewski and his
wife were in was probably stolen. A computer check confirmed
that the van was stolen from Lowndes County and that
Carniewski also had an active Madison County arrest warrant
for Violation Of Probation. No charges have been filed against
Carniewski's wife at the time of this report.
Carniewski was cocky, belligerent, argumentative and ma-
nipulative throughout the arrest process. The investigation con-
tinues.

Confederate Memorial Day
Today is.Confederate Memorial Day. The date was chosen
by the 11 states of the former Confederacy in response to the
first Memorial Day. In 1868, Major General John Logan of Illi-
nois chose' May 30 for Decoration Day, to mark the graves of
more than 400 thousand Union dead in the recently concluded
Civil War.
Not to be outdone, the South chose for their decoration da\
April 26, the date in 1865 n hen the last major Confederate field
army under Joseph E. Johnston surrendered to William T. Sher-
man's army near Bentonville Court House in North Carolina.
signaling the end of America's bloodiest war.
The South was devastated by the Civil War, and the toll was
particularly heavy here in Madison as'well. The Confederate
*Memorial at the center of the Four Freedoms Park, erected in
1909, bears the name of more than 290 Madisonians who per-.
ished in the four year war. To put that number in perspective, I
believe Madison lost 28 young men during World War [I which
lasted about the same length of time. In retrospect, can you
imagine the de\ station those families bore as they received the
terrible news of so many young men who would, not return
home? Of course, the people of that era were much tougher and
hardened to tragic news than we are today.
Very few of the dead made it home to be honored by
their families and community for their sacrifice. Rather, most
are buried near where they fell in unmarked graves. For that
reason, the plaque which bears their names in our park is par-
ticularly important.
Nowhere are the signs of Madison's Confederate heritage
more prominent than in Oak Ridge Cemetery. Many graves of
veterans are marked with their rank and unit of service, such as
Private O. P. Smith (1841-1905) who served in Company K of
the 10th Florida Infantry.,
On the east end of the cemetery are the graves of 31 un-
known soldiers from the Battle of Olustee in Baker County.
These wounded soldiers were brought to Madison to a make
shift hospital on the grounds of the Smith-Wardlaw mansion
where they subsequently perished from their injuries following
the February 1864 battle, Florida's most significant engage-
ment.
Mary Jane Smith ,Pfei ,tld me once that when she' \as a
g f Pj enti he l 93.Qo" o!p[op.FIUlet out
morning each April 26th, and the children would file down to
the Confederate graves to hear speeches and music honoring the
sacrifice of so many brave young men gone but not forgotten.
It was not uncommon during the 19th Century for wound-
ed soldiers to subsequently die from the effects of their wounds,
infection, and disease. Such was the state of medicine in that
era. To illustrate the point, look at the brass marker on the mon-
ument in the park two-thirds of Madison's casualties were
from non-combat causes including disease.
One of the most interesting monuments at Oak Ridge iA
dedicated to: "Elizabeth Harris, Matron of the Florida Hospital
in the Army of the West, 1861-65." Madison's chapter of the
United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) was named in her
honor.
Not far from the Confederate graves is a monument dedi-
cated to the Reverend Ishmael McKinney who was born into
slavery in 1832 arid, as a free man, served as pastor of Damas-
cus Baptist Church prior to his death in 1882. What went
through his mind as he pondered the public reading of the
Emancipation Proclamation on May 20, 1865?
America's most costly war was the product of unfinished
business from the days of our founding. I am convinced that
America needed to go through that terrible experience in order
to become the nation we are today. We should never forget the
sacrifice that was made on both sides in order to become "a
more perfect union."

By Jessalyn Covell

Alan Peacock and his family moved to Niadi-
son in 1975.
He is an active member of Grace Pres-
byterian Church of Madison.
Peacock has been a living miracle the
majority of his life. When he was born,
he seemed like a perfectly normal baby,
until his pediatrician noticed some-
thing that just was not quite right.
Peacock's pediatrician and sur-
geon discovered that he had a spot of
cancer on his abdomen that was the
size of a small grapefruit. Peacock was
transferred to a.hospital in Jacksonville
where his surgery was performed to re-
move the cancer. During the surgery, the
also found numerous spots of cancer on his
liver. The doctors did all they could, perform- .
ing as'much radiation as possible on Peacock
Alan Peacock's parents, John and Dorothy


Peacock, were in disbelief when they discovered that
their newborn child had cancer all throughout his
bod\. The doctors informed the Peacocks they

The North Florida Community Col-
lege (NFCC) will be demonstrating the
official trademarks of their state for this
year's Relay, New York! A traditional fire
station and the Statue of Liberty will be a
sure sign of NFCC's booth at the event.
This year's Relay will mark the col-
lege's third year participating. D
The team leaders for the college are
Jessica Webb, captain and Denise Bell, o
co-captain.
NFCC's team members include Vick-
ie Bosse,' Rebecca Cash, Tony DeLia,
Nita Fico, Melody Foust, Terri Garrett,
Cindy Gaylard, Marie Guest, Phillip
Mantzanas, Kathy Smith, Ruby Steely,
Wendy Webb, Cindy Burnett, Wesley i
Thompson, Efrain Bonilla, and Marie

ing cancer completely. They had a chance
drawing for a Valentine's Day basket in February, they held a taco salad lunch, pancake and sausage breakfast, billie goat bingo, penny wars, and a
chance drawing for a really neat deep sea fishing trip.
Everyone at the college knows someone who has been attacked by the terrible disease and all of the great staff at the college needed to do their
part to help find a cure!
The NFCC staff has several things they love about Relay, a few include raising money to find a cure, the Survivor's Lap, the Luminary Ceremo-
ny, and the site preparation and of course the competition!
Kathy Smith stated, "'Several members of my family are cancer survivors so I try to participate in Relay For Life every year. The most significant
about participating in Relay For Life is being able to raise money to help find a cure for cancer."
The reason why Cindy Burnett relays is because; "Participating in Relay is a wonderful experience. I love the Survivor's Lap because it gives the
community a chance to celebrate with the survivors. The Luminary Ceremony is very special because it reminds me of the ones who have lost their
fight against cancer and the reason I participate in Relay."
Additionally, Wendy Webb commented, "I participate in Relay because I love helping others with their fight against cancer. The Mr. Relay Con-
testant is a lot of fun and I really enjoy it."

CHTTD CAR SEAT SAFETY

Helpful Tips & Advice For Parents


The widespread use of
children's car seats has re-
duced the number of injuries
and .fatalities on American
roads, but a national insurance
program for educators says
more needs to be done.
"Every state requires
that children under the
age of 4 are secured
while riding in a car.
noted Ray Palermo.
director of public in-
formation for Teach-
ers' Insurance Plan.
"Yet despite the

laws and warnings.
car crashes are still
the single largest
cause of death
among children
under the age of
fourteen." Itis es-
timated that half ot the
approximately 1,500 fatalities
each. year could be prevented
with the proper use of a child
car seat.
Although State laws vary
and parents should check to
ensure they are complying
with all local regulations,
Teachers' Insurance Plan of-
fers these general guidelines
for parents to help ensure their
child is safe and secure.
Start Out Right: The
best way to get children in the
habit of using safety restraints
is to learn from their parent's
example. The driver, all adult
passengers and all infants and
children should be safely se-
cured before starting the en-
gine.
Infants Up to 20 Pounds:
Infants from birth to 1-year
old and under 20 pounds in
weight should be secured in an
infant car safety seat on the
back seat of the vehicle, facing
the rear. This avoids injury
from an inflated airbag and
will be less of a distraction for
the driver. If your vehicle does
not have a back seat, deacti-
vate the airbag for that trip, but


be sure to reactivate it when an
.adult is the passenger.
Infants 20+ Pounds: In-
fants from birth to 1-year and
more than 20 pounds should
be either secured in a convert-
ible safety seat or in an infant
seat approved for their
weight. The seats should
be secured on the back
seat of the vehicle,
facing the rear.
Children 20 to 40
Pounds: Children
older than 1-year
who weigh 20 to 40
pounds should be
secured in a child
safety seat on the
back seat of the
Vehicle, -facing
forward.
Children
40+ Pounds:, Children;
who have outgrown their child
safety seat, but- are still too
small (less than 4' 9") to use
the standard adult safety belt
in the car, should use a booster
seat. The lap belt should sit
across the hips and the shoul-
der belt should not cross the
neck or face.
Teachers' also offers
these cautions: Be sure to
read the manufacturer's in-
structions on proper installa-
tion or check with your local
police or fire department, who
are often certified to inspect
car seats. When buying a car
seat, look for the DOT tag. Do
not use a car seat that is bro-
ken or missing parts.
Teachers' Insurance Plan
regularly provides to the pub-
lic news and information re-
garding driver safety, trans-
portation and education issues.
They issue safety tips, reports,
analysis, and conduct original
research as a public service to
educators and drivers. Infor-
mational brochures on safe
driving tips, saving money on
auto insurance and other is-
sues are available.

Landmark FSU( Study Of Hepatitis C Virus


Solves Mystery That Has Stymied Quest For Cure


The hepatitis C virus
(HCV) 'infects more than 170
million people worldwide and
leads to both acute and chron-
ic liver diseases. Since its dis-
covery several decades ago,
the insidious human pathogen
has stymied the quest for anti-
viral therapies by refusing to
reproduce in test tubes for
more than a few hours or days,
denying scientists an efficient
virus production and infection
system for experimental re-
search.
Now, in a landmark study
by Florida State University bi-
ologists that could bolster the
development of anti-viral ther-
apies for HCV-as well as for
related RNA viruses such as
West Nile and influenza-As-
sistant Professor Hengli Tang,


and doctoral student/co-author
Heather B. Nelson have dis-
covered the molecular mecha-
nism that inhibits HCV repli-
cation in vitro after its host
cells become crowded and
stopped dividing.
What's more, their
groundbreaking discovery
came about as a result of the
new test they developed that
can quickly and easily monitor
HCV replication in the labora-
tory.,
Finally, after Tang and
Nelson uncovered the reason
for suppression of the virus in
cell culture in a nutshell: not
enough nucleotide molecules,
the building blocks of HCV-
they then adapted an existing
cell technology to remedy the
problem right in the test tube.


The Tang-Nelson study
and a description of the innov-
ative technologies they de-
vised to enable and track it.
will appear in the February 8
edition of the Journal of Virol-
ogy.
"Our findings could prove
critical to research on HCV's
complex virus-host cell inter-
actions and lead to better, tar-
geted treatments, Tang said.
"Currently, any nucleotide
starvation therapies, used pri-
marily to treat cancer, can in-
hibit replication by depriving
viral agents of their molecular
building blocks. However,
those therapies may impact
healthy cells, as well, causing
undesired side effects."
In the human liver, the
parasitic HCV makes copies

of its genetic material by hi-
jacking nucleotides-the little
molecules produced by it di-
viding host cells. It is only in
liver that pools of nucleotides
remain available to HCV in
sufficient supply after the host
. cells reached confluence (stop
dividing). Not so in test tubes,
say FSU researchers.
To address the shortage of
HCV building blocks in vitro,
their unique adaptation of an
existing cell technology en-
abled the introduction of nu-
Scleoside molecules to a culture
of liver cancer cells. The nu-
cleosides then converted to the
essential nucleotide that Tang
calls the missing link. In turn,
the nucleotides generated in
vitor replication of infectious
HCV particles that continued
even after host cell conflu-
ence-as it does in the liver.
That's not all. "Our new
cell line also allows us to
rapidly identify and isolate


drug-resistant HCV mutants in
vitro and to screen for anti-vi-
ral drug candidates," Tang
said. "This will help re-
searchers better study the
mechanism of drug resistance,
a big problem with this virus
and others such as HIV (hu-
man immunodeficiency virus)
that mutate quickly."
SUnderpinning everything,
Tang says, is their novel, easy-
to-use assay. It can track mu-
tant strains of HCV in a week
or less while other assays take
weeks or month.
"Our assay, for which
FSU has filed a provisional
patent application, employs a
new reporter cell line, which
means the cell give out a de-
tectable signal when certain
events happen inside them."
Said Tang. "In this case, they
emit a green fluorescence
whenever HVC is replicating.
The fluorescence is tracked in
the cell culture through a tech-


Put On A Happy Face...For


Optimism whether it comes naturally or
is learned is good for you.
Not only do happy people live longer than
curmudgeons, but they also lead healthier
lives. Researchers at Mayo Clinic reviewed the
records of people who completed the -Min-
nesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory in
the early 1960s. Three decades later, they
found that pessimists, as compared to opti-
mists, had an increased risk of death. The more
pessimistic the personality, the greater the risk.
In a follow-up study, optimistic people had
better health in all areas.
If you're not naturally a glass half-full per-
son, you may beable tol'iearn'to be more opti--'
mistic and improve your health. The October
issue of Mayo Clinic Women's HealthSource
offers suggestions for becoming, more opti-
mistic:
Stone negative self talk. When you catch


nique know as flow cytome-
try, which employs a machine
equipped with a laser and
lights that follows the green to
find the virus."
Between earning his Ph.
D. at the University of Cali-
fornia-San Diego in 1998 and
joining FSU's biological sci-
ence faculty in 200,4, Tang
served as a lead researcher in
an industry setting, seeking
targeted anti-viral therapies
primarily for HIV.
"I find it particularly re-
warding to play a part in re-
search that may actually help
somebody soon," he said.
The Tang-Nelson study at
FSU-"Effect.of Cell Growth
on Hepatitis C Virus (HCV)
Replication and a Mechanism
of Cell Confluence-Based In-
hibition of HCV RNA and
Protein Expression" -was sup-
ported in part by a grant from
the American Heart Associa-
tion.

NFCC Students Host American Ethnic Heritage Fair


Students in North Florida
Community College's Race
and Ethnicity course showed
off their knowledge of inter-
national cultures during the
American Ethnic Heritage
Fair on April 20 in the NFCC
Student Center. Seven booths
provided a wealth of informa-
tion on Latin, African, Asian,
Italian, Jamaican, Jewish and


European cultures and the in-
fluence of those cultures in
American ethnic communi-
ties.
Sounds of music and aro-
mas of international cuisine
greeted visitors to the exhibit.
Three musicians played hand
drums at the African culture
display and across the room
the beat of reggae music


poured out of a display fea-
turing Jamaican, Caribbean
and Haitian cultures. Booths
also offered foods or recipes
unique to the featured coun-
tries and displayed informa-
tion about the people, indus-
tries, religions and customs of
the area.
According to instructor
Andrea Oliver, the heritage


fair allows students the oppor-
tunity to transform what they
have learned in the classroom
into a creative, informative
exhibit for the campus and
the public.

Build their self-confi-
dence,
Enrich their education
through learning in the global

And develop increased
levels of maturity and inde-
pendence.
Experienced educators
lead Student Ambassador
delegations of 30-40 students
during this dynamic and ex-
citing program. The People to
People Student Ambassador
Program provides students a
world of international oppor-
tunities. They offer a travel

Don't "Overstuff" Retirement Plan
with Company Stock
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Nearly a century ago, George Santayana, philosopher
and poet, wrote: "Those who cannot remember the past are
condemned to repeat it." Sadly, this statement maybe
proving prophetic when it comes to the amount of compa-
ny stock that people put into their retirement plans.
Here's, one key exent in the recent past thai people
'seem ndioto r iiember. Enioni emiiplo\.ee- s i ho pail icipated
in their 401(k) plan had invested about 51' percent of their
401(k) assets in Enron stock when it lost almost all its
value during 2001. But have things changed much since
then? Consider this: In plans that allow company stock as
an investment option, 46 percent of participants hold more
than 20 percent of their account balance in their company
stock, and one-sixth hold more than 80 percent of. their
.account in employer stock, according to a study by the
Center for Retirement Research at Boston College.
You may like your company, but like all stocks, it is
going to rise and fall in value. By putting too much com-
pany stock in your 401(k) portfolio, you might be taking
on too much risk.
Finding the Right Amount
How much of your 401(k) portfolio should consist of com-
pany stock? Many financial experts recommend investing
no more than 10 percent of 401(k) plan assets into compa-
ny stock, but this figure is just a guideline. When determin-
ing how much company stock to put in your 401(k), ask
yourself a couple of questions:

*How far away am I from retirement? If you are
starting out in your career, you might feel justified in hav-
ing a larger share of company stock in your 401(k) than if
you were planning on retiring in a few years. The more
time you have, the better your chances of overcoming the
short-term downturns that will affect your company stock.
But if you are nearing retirement, and you may soon need
to start taking distributions from your 401(k), you might
not want to be oveiweighted with company stock.
*What is the prognosis for my company? This can
be a tough question to answer. If you look back just a few
years, most people would probably say that some of the
big, well-known companies that are struggling today
would always be strong, solid and profitable. And several
years from now, perhaps these firms will again be on solid
ground but right now, the picture is not pretty for them.
So, as you decide on how much company stock to keep in
your 401(k), keep your eyes and ears open on what might
be happening in your company and in the industry to which
it belongs.
Take the Match
It can be risky to pack your 401(k) with a high percent-
age of company stock but if it's offered for free, consider
taking it. If your employer offers shares of company stock
as a 401(k) matching contribution, put in as much as nec-
essary to earn the match. But after you've received it, see if
you can trade in the company shares for other investments
within your 401(k).
Diversification is Key
Company stock can have a place in your 401(k) or
other retirement plan. But you've also got to leave plenty
