A Wal-Mart video security cam-
era captured this image of a suspect
in the murder of Richard S. Meizner.
The suspect had apparently used
Meizner's credit card at the store.
According. to a press release from the
Madison County Sheriff's Office, at approxi-
. mately 10:38 a.m. on 'the in-n'ing ui:1o Thursday;
July 6, the manager of the Super 8 Motel, lo-
cated on State Road 53 north of 1-10 in Madi-
son County, called 911 to report that a house-
keeper had just gone into a room and found a
man who appeared to be deceased.
Deputy Marcus Jones of the Madison
County Sheriff's Office and EMS responded to
the scene, When it was apparent that the victim
died due to homicide, Deputy Jones requested
investigative assistance. Chief Deputy Leonard
R. Harris, Chief Investigator Lieutenant Mark
W. Joost and Lieutenant Tina M. DeMotsis
subsequently responded to the scene.
Josh Harris assisted with interviews and
securing the perimeter, while Lieutenant Joost
and Lieutenant DeMotsis conducted the pre-
liminary scene processing.
Chief Deputy Harris requested assistance
from the Florida Department of Law Enforce-
ment (FDLE), since many of the investigative
leads reached well out of the jurisdiction of the,
Madison County Sheriff's Office.

Klip Cable Listens

To Lee Residents'

Requests For

Better Service
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A number of people were on hand when
Klip Cable appeared at the Lee Town Council
meeting on Monday evening, July 3.
The cable customers were on hand to ad-
dress the problems with the service in the Town
of Lee. Problems include trouble with the au-
dio and pictures on some of the channels.
Klip Cable also addressed a need for more
cable channels in the Town of Lee. Klip re-
cently added the Learning Channel and will
soon add ESPN 2 to its lineup. They are also
looking at the possibility of adding HDTV or
The Weather 'Channel. These channels will be.
added at no extra cost on the basic monthly
bill.
In other action, the town approved a tenta-
tive millage rate of 6.67 mills, the rate that the
town has been at for the last 15 years. This has
not been set yet, but once it is presented to the
county, the rate can go no higher.
The Council tabled approval of a new P&Z
board member. They also gave authorization to
purchase a high service pump and a high ser-
vice motor for its water tower in order to have
a backup system.
The Council also waived an impact fee for
people who will annex into the city limits.

They Are Not Dead who live in lives they leave behind;
In those whom they have blessed, they live a life again,


And, shall live, through the years.
Eternal life, and grow each day more beautiful
As time declares their good, *
Forgets the rest, and proves their immortality.
-Hugh Robert Orr
This- week, Madison County lost two beautiful and lovely ladies who had become two of the
matriarchs of this area. Our family was close to both the ladies, and we sympathize with the fam-
ilies in their loss. But, the purpose of this column is to remember them for what they were, and.
the many, many admireable qualities they possessed, as well as for all they have done for them-
selves, Madison County, and their families.
Pauline Nunn Owen, age 90, died Saturday, July 8, 2006, at home with
her family in Madison.
She was a beautiful person, inside, and out. Pauline was born
in Brooksville, Fl. on November 27, 1915. She had lived in San-
ford for many years, where she raised her children, Martha Owen
Davis, and Jim Owen.
At her funeral Monday, it was brought out that Mrs. Owen was
a loving and caring mother, grandmother, and friend. She loved
the Lord, loved to play the piano-and sing, and loved life. She
was a hard-working woman, who came to Madison to live with
her daughter and son-in-law many years ago. Everyone who met
Mrs. O%%en loed her dearly.
Known as "Nanny," Mrs. Owen leaves behind 4 grandchildren;
9 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren. She was
proceeded in death by her husband, James C. Owen, of Sanford.
Pauline The other grand lady this county lost this week was Willie
Nunn Owen Clare Copeland, who was 94 years old.
She, too, passed away Saturday, July 8, 2006, in Madison
Mrs. Copeland was a life-long resident of Madison Counts.
was a businesswoman, and was active in many civic organizations..
heading up most of them. She loved Madison County, and al- -
ways thinking of ways to promote her county. Every ye:a she
would hold a day to have countians come down to the railroad '
area of Madison, and listen to the Cotton Gin Whistle blow. She .
was also the lady behind the idea of planting trees to honor de-
ceased Woman's Club members and Garden Club members She
was actively inriv6lvd ifhie Mldi'_on"C-_'uni, Hstorical,,Societ.. i- :-...-
and was instrumental in getting historic markers all over NMl.,dison <
County. She was constantly trying to find ways for a "better Nladi-
son County."
The Husband's and my, families go way, way back with both
ladies, and we will miss them as friends, as well as ''"ladies of dis- Willie Clare
tinction." But, as Christians, we know we will see them again. Copeland
It was Henry Wadsworth Longfellow who wrote:
"There is no Death! What seems so is transition;
Ttis life of mortal breath,
Is but a suburb of the life elysian,
Whose portal we call Death."
While writing about the passing of Mrs. Owen, I remembered many years ago when The Hus-
band and I joined forces with Jimmy and Martha Davis each year to honor our four mothers. We
would hold a "Mother's Retreat" each year just before Mother's Day, at our Hunting Camp in the
woods. The event honored our four mothers, and all of their friends. It was always such a "spe-

am' -1 0-IM

This is perhaps the last "Mother's Day Retreat" that we held in the woods of
Madison County for our four mothers and their many friends. With the passing of
Pauline Owen this week, all our mothers have now gone on to be with the Lord.
Left to right are: the late: Cora Lee Hartsfield
Greene; Berta Lucile Green Selman; Florida Langford
Davis, and Pauline Nunn Owen. They were so loved!!
cial" day for all four mothers, and us.
Jimmy and Martha showed us, this week, the photo we had
taken one year of our mothers together, and as I looked at it, it A -
brought back such wonderful memories. We invited just about
every woman in Madison who were friends of our mothers, and
we treated them to a delightful "day together." We had good
food, good fellowship, and wonderful memories.
We would give each mother present a souvenir to take home -
with them, and we took lots and lots of pictures.
Memories like that is what makes us smile when we think
of the "good times" we had together. Here is perhaps the last '
picture we took of our mothers together. They are all gone now,
but remain in our hearts and minds with only good memories.
"Death is a common friend or foe; As different men may
hold. And, at its summons each must go, The timid and the bold;
But when the spirit, free and warm, Deserts it, as it must, What
matter where the lifeless form, Dissolves again to dust? The sil-
ver cord in twain is snapped. The golden bowl is broken; The
mortal mould in darkness wrapped; The words funeral spoken;
The tomb is built, or the rock is cleft, Or delved is the grassy
clod; And, what for mourning man is left Oh, what is left, but
God?"
"Nuff said...Bye for Now... See 'ya.

Reader Thanks City Of Greenville


To The Editor,
I wanted to thank the City of Greenville for
all their hard work. I really appreciate all the
time you have spent putting together our 4th of
July fireworks celebration. Everybody loves
getting together, celebrating, talking, and hav-
ing a good ol' time. It's a time to celebrate our
freedom and independence. To thank your


forefathers for sacrificing for our freedom.
I really enjoy my chair and table that I won
at bar-b-Que fundraiser. It works very well and
come in handy. Thank you for the dinner and
raffle that Saturday. It was delicious. I'm sure
everyone enjoyed the fireworks.
Sincerely,
Kailee Morris


Your five-year-old kid getting pushed
down by another five-year-old kid is NOT a po-
lice matter; talk to the other kid's parents, not
the police. -
If your kid won't do his homework or do
his chores, 911 is not the answer.'
If a -cop causes a car accident we usually
get a ticket, and sometimes we get suspended.,
When is the last time you got three days off
(without pay) for rear-ending a guy at Winn-
Dixie? '
If you think you can fan all the pot smoke
out of the car before we smell it, good luck.
We know you've had more than two beers.
When I've had two beers, I didn't hit six parked
cars, drive my car through the front doors of a
Jiffy food store, pee in my pants or pass out at
a traffic light.
When you see an emergency vehicle be-
hind you with its lights and sirens on, pull to
the RIGHT, and stop. We are required to pass
cars on the left.
When you're driving in the fast lane and
.you see,a cop behind you, don't go 5 MPH un-
der the speed limit, We are not impressed by
how safe of a driver you can be, we're trying to
g0'o help someone (or catch that guy in the SUV
that iist cut you off). Safely move over and let
us pass please.
\\hen you see an officer conducting a traf-
fic stop. or with a suspect in handcuffs. it is
general\ not a good idea to approach him and
ask for directions. If you do, don't expect the
officer to be nice when he tells you to get lost,
and don't expect the officer to take the time to
e\plain rl *,
Here'< how. to get out of a ticket. Don't
break the law.
If \ou drive a piece of junk, that is why
\o'u're getting pulled over.
In one week I pulled over 10 cars for minor
traffic violations. 5 out of 10 had no vehicle in-
surance. 3 out of 10 had suspended driver's li-
censes. 2 out of 10 had warrants. 1 out of 10
had felony warrants. 1 was a known sex of-
fender with his 12 year old niece in the car
without her mothers knowledge.
If you've just been pulled over doing. 70 in


a 35, do not greet the officer with "what seems
to be the problem, officer."
We get coffee breaks too,, and. sometimes
we run into stores and do some shopping dur-
ing them..
When you're the victim of a burglary, take
the time you spend waiting for the officer to
find the model number and the serial number of
the stuff that was taken.
Some cops are just jerks, but take heart in
the fact that other cops don't like them either.
If it's nighttime and you're driving a vehi-
cle with tinted windows and I pull you over, it's
not because of your skin color. I usually can't
tell if the vehicle even has a driver until the
windows rolled down.
Every time you hear on the news about
people running away from a crazed gunman,
someone's son or daughter in a police uniform
is running TOWARD that crazed gunnian.
Yes. it's true, cops usually don't give other
cops tickets. Think of it as an employee dis-
count, perk or benefit. Other cops are family
and you wouldn't give your brother a ticket if
you were a cop either.
Police work is w% writing reports.
In one year of patrol work in a large city,
only about ten minutes would be cool. enough
to be on the television show Cops.
Every traffic stop could end in gunfire, but
we have to be polite and professional until that
time.
I've taken about the same amount of men
and women to jail for domestic violence, so NO
.it's not always, the man.
People love fire fighters.
People hate cops
If the light was yellow, we couldn't be
having this conversation,
Cops know you pay taxes and that your
taxes pay cops' salaries. Cops also pay taxes,
which also pay cops' salaries so, hey, this
traffic stop is on me. Now sign here; press
hard. There are four copies.

Signed, a local law enforcement officer

Everyone should have mowed their lawns following .that
rapturous rain. How soothing and timely it was. Our grass cer-
tainly responded.
Rocky Springs United Methodist had dinner on the grounds
after church Sunday to honor their new pastoral family, the
Wayne Albertsons. Needless to say, we consumed great quanti-
ties of delicious food.
During the dinner, Gatepost felt very humbled. The United
Methodist Women honored us' with a pin tdo recognize our ser'.
vice to the church. They made a donation in our honor to the
Global Ministries work with children, women, and youth. We
feel unworthy of such a gift, but we are grateful for the contri-
bution to the cause.
A big congratulatory hug to Shannen Combass for finishing
in the Top Ten of 157 contestants in the National All-American
Miss Pageant in Orlando.
Crispy congratulations to ONeal's for winning the "Best
Fried Chicken in Madison" competition. We find that bird very
tasty indeed.
Welcome back to Wilmer and Pauline Strickland. They've
been vacationing at a mountain condo.

Guest Columnist


State of Fear
There has been a lot of talk, at least since 1988, about the
theory of global warming. Now I know what most of you are
thinking: what has this got to do with national security? Let me
tell you folks that there is a group of people in this country and
elsewhere who believe that global warming is the greatest threat
to the security of our planet, greater than such things as interna-
tional terrorism, nuclear proliferation, militarization of China,
rogue states like Iran and North Korea, etc., etc.
I first heard this misplaced priority in 1993 by way of for-
mer Senator Tim Wirth of Colorado, at the time, an Undersecre-
tary of State in the Clinton Administration. His audience was
the Pentagon's, newest crop of admirals and generals, one of
whom happened to be my boss. Needless to say, they were as-
tounded by such a "%ack) theory. I was equally incredulous
and remain so today.
Yet 13 years later, this line of reasoning is paramount in pri-
maril\ Democratic circles. Recently, former president Bill
Clinton made this pronouncement and Al Gore, the close but no
cigar presidential candidate in 2000, has a documentary on the
big screen titled "An Inconvenient Truth" which predicts a glob-
al warming apocalypse.
To prepare for this onslaught of misinformation, I recently
read a fictional thriller. -State of Fear" is the title of a 2004 nov-
el by highly acclaimed author lMichael Crichton (Jurassic Park
and The Andromeda Strain). The theme behind "State of Fear"
is that a bunch of left Nx ing en\ ironmental actii ists plan to stage
a series of major disasters, such as cal ing an iceberg and cre-
ating a tsunami, to highlight the supposed effects of, global
warming. Combating these eco-terrorists is a small team of am-
ateurs who discover the plot and renounce their environmental
orthodoxy. *
What makes "State of Fear" so unusual for fiction is that it
is rife with footnotes and a very descriptive bibliography ...
Crichton did a lot of research in preparation of this book. At the
end is an appendix where the author divulges his conclusions
about climate change gained from his research., I found the
book not only entertaining but insightful.
The title "State of Fear" is based on a tactic that is the stock
in trade of three professions politicians, the media and trial
lawyers, none of which I hold in high regard. Together, they
live off fear, either realor contrivedor persona 'gain. Politi-
cians love to stir up fear, to endear themselves to supporters by
offering solutions that make voters dependent on them. The
media revels in sensational bad news which sells more
newsprint that good news. And last but not least, trial lawyers
see every fear as a potential lawsuit with rich rewards for the
firm.
I recently encountered a warning signal, a red flag about
this business of global warming from a liberal activist on a
newscast. This is about what he said: "there is no debate on the
issue of global warming. All of the noteworthy scientists agree
that the earth is warming at a dangerous rate and it is caused by
man. We only need to talk about the policy changes that we will
make to avoid disaster." There it is ... case closed! Absolutely
no reason to examine any countervailing facts or points of view
according to this 6rthodoxy.
I worked on a project a few years back for a fellow named
Mike Dugan who went on to become Air Force chief of staff.
General Dugan said something to me once that I've never for-
gotten: "it pays to have a healthy sense of skepticism." When it
comes to global warming, I would suggest this is really good
advice.
Here is what I believe to be true about global warming. Is
the earth experiencing a rise in temperature? Yes, it began about
a century ago and has resulted in an elevation of about six-
tenths of a degree. This rise in temperature followed a period of
global cooling that lasted about four centuries. Is this recent pe-
riod of warming the result of man, specifically through emis-
sions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases? Possibly
we don't really know, but in all likelihood, man is at least par-
tially responsible for some of this phenomenon.
Does the earth's climate naturally fluctuate? Without a
doubt! In fact, we can expect another period of global cooling
in the not-to-distant future, and with these fluctuations, the earth
adjusts to these changes. Is our recent up tick in hurricane fre-
quency the result of global warming? No, the hurricane experts
tell us we are currently in a cycle of increased frequency. My
record of Florida hurricanes which have made landfall since
1896 reinforces this claim. Should we be suspicious of envi-
ronmental organizations staffed with more lawyers than scien-
tists? Oh yeah. And finally, why do some hype the issue of
global warming to the point of hysteria? It's all about the mon-
ey those grant dollars ($25 billion since 1990) to study an is-
sue and the seemingly endless donations that fuel environmen-
tal groups. They need a "problem" to stay alive.
Is it arrogant of man to think that he can make changes
which will affect the earth's climate? Oh yeah; in fact, we can't
even predict what the weather will be next week. Let me amend
that since it is July, I predict it will be hot next week. How'd
I do?

Financial Strategies
for Your 50's and 60's
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
When yott first started out in your career, you may have
focused on paying off student loans, buying a home and,
hopefully, starting to save for retirement. Generally speak-
ing, these are pretty straightforward goals. But by the time
you enter your 50s and 60s, your financial objectives may be
,.fme\l hat more couple\, o 'on \\ill need to take ,zreat care
in creation and implementing the riiht strategies.

What You'll Need and What You'll Have
During your 20s, 30s and 40s, you may have put away
as much as you could afford in your 401(k) and IRA, but
your more immediate concerns were paying someone else:
your student loan provider, your mortgage company, your
children's college, etc. But once. you reach your 50s, you
may have finished with these types of obligations. And that
gives you an opportunity to look ahead.
For starters, you'll want to envision the type of retire-
ment lifestyle you want. Of course, you may have done this
exercise when you were younger, but, over time, your plans
could easily have changed. Now it's time to really take a
close look at what you expect from retirement. Where will
you live? Will you travel much? Volunteer? Open a small
business? The possibilities are vast and so are the differ-
ences in cost. So, to navigate your course during the years
left until you retire, you will want to know what your retire-
ment will look like and how much it will cost.
Once, you know about how much money you will need
to fund your retirement, your next step is to look at your
potential retirement assets: Social Security payments, distri-
butions from your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored plan,
and income from your personal investments, such as bond
interest and stock dividends. Factoring in all these resources,
will you have enough to enjoy a retirement that could last
two or three decades? If not, what can you do about it dur-
ing the years before you retire? Should you adjust your port-
folio to provide more growth? Can you put in still more to
your 401(k) and IRA? If you have "maxed out" on these
vehicles, should you look for another tax-advantaged retire-
ment vehicle, such as an annuity?
Clearly, these are not simple questions to answer, which
is why you may be able to benefit from working with a
financial professional someone who knows your situation
and can help you create individualized strategies to meet
your goals.

Put Estate Plans in Place
Beyond estimating the cost of your retirement lifestyle,
and assessing your financial preparedness, what else can you
do in your 50s and 60s to make sure you are on track to meet
all your goals? You need to do your estate planning.
Specifically, you will want to have the appropriate legal
documents in place. Do you have the correct beneficiaries
named on your insurance policies? Do you have a will and a
living trust to make sure that your assets will be distributed
according to your wishes? Do you have a, durable power of
attorney so that someone can make financial decisions on
your behalf if you become incapacitated?
By working with an experienced estate-planning attor-
ney and tax professional you can protect your financial inter-
ests and those of your family. So don't delay the sooner
you start, the less you will have to worry about in retirement.

Fernand Celebrates 99th


By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Genevieve Fernand was
born in Chicago on July 15,
1907 to Louis and Agatha Su-
tor.
She was taken to Poland
when she was approximately
seven years old due to her
grandmother passing.
Unfortunately, shortly af-
ter, her mother passed away
from the terrible disease, tu-
berculosis, at the young age
of 35. Also, her two brothers
died in infancy and she was
the only child left.
Fernand was stranded in
Europe because of. to World


War I until she was almost
16.
She was forced to work
on farms and the only thing
she was offered to eat was
potatoes and sauerkraut. She
still loves it to this day.
SShe was given a 10 dollar
gold piece by her grandmoth-
er and when she traveled
back to the United States she
was robbed by gypsies in
Antwerp. They took every-
thing she had, including her
passport..
Then, Fernand was taken
to the American council
where U.S. president, Calvin
Coolidge and his wife, Grace

Pine Lake Nursing Home Holds



Father's Day Fishing Tournament


By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On Sunday, June 18, at
6:30 p.m. the residents of
Pine Lake Nursing Home cel-
ebrated Father's Day with a
fishing tournament.
The residents went out on
the dock and used all 75
worms that Activities Direc-
tor, Diane Sullivan and; her
husband personally dug up
out of the ground! Also, there
were 15 cane poles that her
husband fixed up for residents


to use.
The
lemonade


residents drank
and ate sweet wa-


termelon to appease their ap-
petites.
The very first catch of the
day was a three foot alligator
that got away ...lucky for him!
Additionally, the residents
caught two catfish and 25
bream.
There were plenty of do-
nations that made the Father's
Day fishing tournament a
wonderful success.
Jackson's Drug Store of
Greenville and the Corner
Store of Greenville donated
prizes for whichever residents
caught the biggest and best
fish!


Wilson Bait and Tackle of
Perry donated fishing sup-
plies. Badcock Furnishings
and More and South House
Furniture of Perry both donat-
ed fans to keep the residents
cool. Sherwin-Williams of
Perry donated 20 hats to ward
off the sun for residents, who
were participating in the tour-
nament and Winn-Dixie of
Perry donated a gazebo!
A huge thank you is ex-
tended out to these extremely
gracious businesses that spon-
sored the fishing tournament
at the Pine Lake, Nursing.
Home!


Pine Lake residents who won the Father's Day fishing tournament are, pictured
left to right: Joseph Wright, fourth place; Leroy Handley, third place; Diane Sullivan,
Activities Director; Ricky Rogers, second place; and Daniel Hicks, first place.

Florida Agriculture Com-
missioner Charles H. Bronson
today announced that nomina-
tions are being accepted for
the 2006 "Woman of the Year
in Agriculture" award. The
award, now in its 22nd year,
recognizes women who have
made outstanding contribu-
tions to Florida agriculture.
"This award spotlights.the
vital role of women in Florida
agriculture and serves to ein-
courage other women to get
involved in the business,"
Bronson said. "Many women
have made significant contri-
butions over the years in de-
veloping and sustaining this
important industry, which has
an overall economic impact
.estimated at more than $87
billion annually."
Those nominated for the
award will be judged by a pan-
el familiar with Florida agri-
culture. The award will be
presented in February at the'
opening-day luncheon of the
2007 Florida State Fair in
Tampa.
The Florida Department,
of Agriculture and Consumer
Services, which sponsors the
event, has sent nomination
forms to agricultural organiza-
tions around the state. The,
deadline for submitting nomi-
nations to the Deparinent is
November 1, 2006. Nomina-
tions remain active for two
years; after that time they must
be resubmitted in order to be
considered.

in Agriculture" award includ-

heart and soul of Big Bend Hos-
pice.
Big Bend Hospice has been
your hometown hospice since
1983. When the doors opened
the first day, the census was one.
Today, the average daily census
is now usually greater than 280.
In 1986, hospice services be-
came a Medicare reimbursable
benefit. When this became ef-
f'cii'.e. the federal '".emient
required that volunteers provide
5 percent of all hands on patient
care. Big Bend Hospice is very
pi ,:ud to brag that we exceed
this, averaging 8-10 percent.
Our pool of volunteers at
Big Bend Hospice ranges in age
from 18 to 80 something! They
are college students who origi-
nally were looking for a few
volunteer hours and end up stay-


ing active throughout their en-
tire college career. They are
stay-at-home moms looking for
something rewarding to do with
free hours, and businesspersons
who manage to squeeze us into
their already cramped sched-
ules. They are retirees looking
to enrich their retirement years
and give something back to
their community. They are men
and women from all walks of
life who are willing to get out of
bed in the middle of the night to
sit with a patient that is immi-
nently dying. They are people
who cheerfully sit out in 90-de-
gree weather at various fairs
and festivals to get.the word out
about our organization and the
services we provide. These
members of your.,county give
and give and yet always cheer-
fully reply, "Yes!" the next time

they are asked to take on anoth-
er task. Each volunteer has spe-
cial stories to share. One volun-
teer reported that as she entered
the room of her patient, she
could see that the lady was in
extreme pain. When the patient
realized her volunteer was there
with her, she raised her arms
and told her that she was the
sunshine in her morning! This
affected the volunteer more
than anything else a patient had
ever told her. Volunteers say
they receive a lot more that they
give.

pice volunteer. If you are inter-

HEALTH





Shands Healthcare Outlines Vision For Shands AGH


Future includes plans for new children's services patient tower


Tim Goldfarb, is
Shands HealthCare's
Chief Executive Officer.
(Photo submitted)
Shands HealthCare pre-
sented a recommendation to
their board of directors as
part of Shands' strategic plan
to enhance patient care in the
Gainesville area.
The recommendation


outlines a vision to expand
services offered at Shands
AGH and strengthen the com-
munity hospital for the fu-
ture; enable Shands at the
University of Florida to meet
increased demand for ser-
vices; and ultimately consoli-
date children's services in a
dedicated patient tower at
Shands AGH when funding
becomes available. *
The plan, which requires
final approval from Shands
HealthCare's board of direc-
tors, will be implemented in
multiple phases. In phase
one, a major portioIn of the
children's services currently
offered at Shands at UF will
be relocated to. the Shands
AGH campus and will feature
private rooms for children
and their families.
"This is an exciting time


for Shands HealthCare," said
Tim Goldfarb, Shands
HealthCare chief executive
officer. "We believe our plans
will- a provide a long-term so-
lution to revitalizing Shands
AGH while maintaining the
essence of the hospital by
supplementing its existing
programs, such as family
medicine and emergency ser-
vices."
I Programs moving from
Shands at UF will include
most pediatric non-surgical
services as well as pediatric
otolaryngology (ear, nose and
throat), orthopaedics, oral
surgery, outpatient surgery
and corresponding consulta-
tive and ,support services.
Children's services staying at
Shands at UF include cardiol-
ogy, cardiac surgery, bone
marrow, neonatology, general


surgery, transplantation, trau-
ma/burn, neurosurgery. and a
portion of pediatric intensive
care. Vacated space will be
used to expand other clinical
services.
Phase two of the recom-
mendation includes building
a dedicated patient tower for
children's services at Shands
AGH. This goal 'may take
several years, depending on
outside fundraising.
"Offering children's pro-
grams at Shands AGH will al-
most immediately improve
the access to healthcare for
children and families in our
community," said Dr. Terry.
Flotte, UF College of Medi-
cine chair of pediatrics.
"There is great benefit to the
ease of a more intimate and
easily navigable facility. This
will. also allow us to create a


door-to-door, child and fami-
ly friendly environment for
families under the great stress
of having an ill child. This is
a practical model with much
to gain in the future. We ulti-
mately hope to consolidate all
children's services on a single
campus where there's room to
expand."
In addition to resolving
the underutilization of avail-
able resources at Shands
AGH, Goldfarb said the plan
alleviates capacity issues that
Shands at UF has been
wrestling with due to ongoing
demands for care.
"One benefit of being
part of a large healthcare sys-
tem is our breadth of re-
sources within the organiza-
tion and the opportunities for
us to collaborate to better
serve our patients," Goldfarb


said. "This plan demonstrates
Shands HealthCare's commit-
ment to serve the community
and build a strong future for
Shands AGH. It also supports
our overall vision to more ef-
fectively deliver and expand
children's services to benefit
our young patients and their
families."
Shands developed the
strategy based upon extensive
input from Shands and UF
College of Medicine leaders.
Goldfarb said they are in the
early stages of the plan and
have not worked out specifics
related to budget and time-
line, although they hope to
have phase one changes com-
plete in September.
The Shands HealthCare
board of directors will final-
ize and approve the plans at
an upcoming meeting.

Caring For

A New Tattoo
If you are going to get a tat-
too, you will want to take good
care of your skin to avoid infec-
tion. For the first 24 hours after
getting inked, keep the site cov-
ered. After the bandage is
removed, cleanse the area sever-
al times each day with anti-bac-
terial soap. Afterward, pat the
skin dry gently. Then, apply an
antibiotic ointment or lotion. If
scabs do form over the tattooed
skin, resist the urge to pick
them. Doing- so may not only
prevent proper healing, it may
also compromise the shape and
color of your tattoo. In the event
that the tattooed skin becomes
red, swollen or sore, see a der-
matologist immediately to treat
a possible infection.
At GAINESVILLE DER-
MATOLOGY & SKIN
SURGERY, we are dedicated
to providing the highest quality
of medical skin care possible.
With compassion and respect,
we can treat even the most chal-
lenging skin problem, utilizing
the most recent advances in der-
matologic therapy. Our office is
conveniently located at 114
NW 76th Drive and we can be
reached by calling 352-332-
4442 to schedule an appoint-
ment. New patients are wel-
come.
P.S. If you decide to remove
an unwanted tattoo, ask about
laser removal procedures.

How To Be A Smarter

Health Care Consumer

Get the most from your health care dollars


When shopping for a new
car or making investment de-
cisions, most people spend
significant amounts of time
planning and researching their
choices. However, many con-
sumers aren't nearly as savvy
when it comes to making
health care decisions.
Double-digit percentage
increases in health care spend-
ing are causing some con-
sumers to rethink their in-
volvement in making health
care decisions. Many who
once took a passive approach
to their health care benefits are
now taking an active role and
are becoming more knowl-
edgeable about their health
care choices.
"Becoming a smarter
health care consumer benefits
everyone," said Dr. Melvyn
Fletcher, vice-president, pro-
fessional programs. Blue
Cross and Blue Shield of
Florida. "When consumers
know what is available to
them, and can make more in-
formed decisions of the ser-
vices and capabilities offered,
it not only assists in keeping
their individual- costs down,
but also helps keep overall
health care costs from rising."
There are many ways you
can become a better-informed
health care consumer, from
simply asking questions of
your physician to patronizing
facilities that are in your
plan's network. "Many con-
sumers are reluctant to ask
their physicians questions
about tests and treatments,"
said Fletcher. "But it's impor-
tant to understand your op-
tions and the financial impli-
cations associated with each
one so you can make an in-
formed decision."
Some plans offer a choice
of hospitals as well, and it may
also pay to research what dif-
ferent providers charge for
various services and treat-
ments. Requesting generic al-
ternatives to name brand drugs
can also save consumers on
their out-of-pocket expenses.
In addition, consumers
should make an effort to stay
healthy by taking advantage of
preventive care treatments,
such as flu shots, mammo-
grams and wellness programs.
Many health care plans offer
discounted wellness programs
which provides reduced prices
on gym memberships, mas-
sage therapy, workout videos
bicycle helmets and other
products and services.
Some consumers may want to


explore the benefits of flexible
spending accounts, which al-
low them to set aside pre-tax
funds to cover routine health
care costs. Many flexible


spending accounts now cover
over-the-counter meditations,
such as cold and cough med-
ication.
"Education isthe key,"
said Fletcher. "By increasing
their awareness of the options
available to them, consumers
have .the opportunity to make
decisions that best suit their
individual needs. In doing so,
they not only benefit them-
selves, they help to control
overall health care costs."
For more tips on being a
smart health care consumer,
contact your health plan.
