Brown discovered many discrepancies in. the
Sprint data and the new 9-1-1 maps. The maps
and the phone company data must agree in or-

of those that showed an incorrect address. So

The Florida Supreme Court has said voters in 2008 can de-
cide on a constitutional amendment that would give citizens the
final say on growth and development decisions.
Instead of living at the mercy of a handful of commission-
ers, citizens will be able to decide for themselves -good or bad-
how they want their communities to grow by a referendum. But,
this won't happen unless Florida voters step forward right now.
The grass-roots group working to get this amendment on
the ballot is Florida Hometown Democracy. Organizers are

I enjoyed the story "Precious Memories" so very much. I
have a sister in a nursing home in Florida. Her daughter took the
CD by Alan Jackson to her and played it for her. She has had a
stroke and it affected her speech. She started singing the hymns
along with him with a big smile on her face and it meant so
much to all of her family. Thank you so much.

I've,been with, and have dealt with Cops, for the greater
part of my life. I watched a big burley Cop "we all know the
kind" cry openly. This Cop was carrying a three-year-old child
out of the home she had been tortured and finally killed in. The
little girl had been at the Emergency room two weeks prior for,
having cuffs midway to her elbows. Cuffs are Cop speak for
submersing the baby's hands in boiling water, making the skin
'pink and puffy to the watermark. The mother was upset with her
child for soiling her diapers; the child's loving father killed her
for the same reason. The Cop was the little girls neighbor.
I watched a Cop breathing through his mouth, and not from
his nose, in order to prevent himself from puking. The stench
from a young girls, bloated and fast rotting body had to be
pulled out the ditch she had been thrown in, nine days earlier.
The hot Florida June sun had done it's job, on the sixteen year
old. The sixteeln-year-old girl, played baseball with this Cops
I watched a Cop reach out through a fence, and pat a young
mans shoulder bent on suicide. This Cop begged him not to pull
the trigger. That Cop stopped by my shop that evening, his
shoulders bent and full of. agony. The young man had pulled the,
trigger, ending hi s life.
I \% watched a Cop and his wife, while getting a divorce. The
young and devoted wife couldn't take it anymore, the long
hours away from home, duty calls at all hours of the night be-
came more than she could bare. The Cop? Well, he was devot-
ed to his job. This Cop told me he couldn't and didn't know how
to do an\ thing else. that wajs his calling.
I have many more of these stories to tell, but they're all
from the past. Ifd like to tell about\ my encounters with the local
crew of Cops here in Madison. My wife and I have been inun-
dated w ith some of our local Cops, the past few years. We have
spent hours, enjoying their company and talking to them.
One's story is, when asked why he was a Cop, "it certainly
isn't the money" this was the first time I had seen this young
man smile and downright giggle: He said, "when I was a kid, I
saw a police car going down the road with it's flashing lights
and siren blaring", He went on to say, "from that moment on, I
was hooked, I knew I wanted to become a Cop".
My store was broken into last week; I had many items miss-
ing that are quite dangerous if the wrong people have them in
their possession. Deputy Marcus Jones was the first Cop to ar-
ri\,e and soon realized there wasmore to this B&E than he could
handle Deput MNitrcus called for,a back up. Deputy Chris Ari-
dil*s wasthe next Cop toqshow up, I've known Chris for a cou-
ple of years now but'haven't seen him the last two or so months.
My wife chided him for being away for so long, "she thinks of
him as a different sort of son"., Then came the CSI crew of Lt.
Tina DeMotsis. This young lady spent the better part of the day
in the hot blazing sun taking pictures and looking for any clue
that may lead to the arrest of the perp. We did mention that theb
, CSI crew on TV can solve any problem in one hour, which
brought a smile, to her face and said she would do her best.
The following day, MPD Cop, Sergeant Greene came to my
store, off duty, and really out of jurisdiction. Sergeant Greene
asked for a list of. missing articles, telling my wife and I "you
never know what you will run into on the streets". Another
MPD Cop came to my shop later that day, Officer Haskell. Of-
ficer Haskell introduced himself and also asked for a list of
.missing articles. These. two Cops didn't have to come to my aid,
this case belongs to the, Sheriffs Department.' With that said,
these Cops care. what happens in their city, and are devoted to
.their jobs, protecting us.
Deputy John Sleighter has come by my shop many nights
leaving his telltale sign, it's not something he has to do, but he
does it because he's a good Cop. Another newcomer Keith Kirk-
land, Keith stopped by my store a couple of weeks ago with his
lovely v. ife to introduce himself, this Cop leaves his calling card
now and then also.
Lt. Mark Joost: This man has .called me many times the past
few days, letting me know how the investigation is going and
keeping me up jto date. Lt. Joost knows how important this in-
vestigation is to me, the County and the City of Madison. Lt.
Joost reminds me of my Chief in the Navy, all my guy's called
him their "Navy Daddy", with all the respect demanded, from
such a man. I for one am proud to know Lt. Joost.
There are many other Cops that I've had the opportunity
and pleasure of meeting, Officers, Ben Ebberson, Brandon Ab-
bott, Jimmy Fletcher "I knew you when Jimmy" Corporal
David Harper, .and Corporal Alan Whigham, another new
Deputy Kevin Anderson formerly of the MPD. I'm terribly sor-
ry if I missed anyone, my memory is getting short. All of these
young men are good, and dedicated Cops.,
All of us in Madison owe these young men and woman, a
great deal. We come nowhere near paying them 'what they de-
serve, then, we cuss them out when they give us a ticket. But
then, when the lights are out, and something goes bump in the
night, whom do we call? When some crack head piece of
garbage pulls a knife on you, whom do you call? When you find
your car is no longer in the driveway, whom do you call? It's al-
ways a Cop.
This County has lost many of our finest and we are about to
lose another, due to lack of pay. Why go out and chase the bad
guys, when you can baby-sit them at the State Prison, for teau
thousand dollars more per 3 ear Our' City and County elected eof-f,
ficials need to take heed, the next time you need a Cop, we, may
not have one available to send you. My advice is to PAY them,
a living wage. Many have told me if it were not for their wives
having a good job "out of town of course" they couldn't make
it on what we pay them.

Justin Davis, owner of Justin Davis Logistics, asked what would
happen if a house in the historic district was in a state where it could
not be repaired. He asked if he would then be able to tear it down?
Scott Koons., with the North Central Florida Regional Planning
Council, said that there were always exceptions, which could be ap-
plied for and granted.
A number of citizens present were concerned what would hap-
pen if they were in the historic district and wanted to modify their
homes or businesses.
Koons assured them that the decision would be left up to their
city commissioners, whom they chose to elect.
Commissioner Jim Catron made a motion to withdraw the cur-
rent application and resubmit it for advertising. Commissioner
Myra Valentine seconded the motion and it passed unanimously.

On July 4th, the Space Shuttle Discovery rocketed from
Kennedy Space Center hurling seven astronauts into orbit and
toward the International Space Station. Half a world away, the
North Koreans decided to show their mettle by launching seven
missiles and rockets into the Sea of Japan. Whether or not the
tests were particularly effective was incidental; the Koreans rat-
tled their sabers and the rest of the world worried.
Before getting too far into this subject, let's start with an ed-
ucational test: what is the difference between a rocket and a
missile? Answer: a missile is a rocket w ith a guidance system.
In contrast, plain rockets are unguided. So, all missiles have
rocket engines, but not ;all rockets are missiles. This factoid
may prove helpful the next time'you play Trivial Pursuit.
Back to the problem in Northeast Asia--North Korea is in-
exorably marching toward' point where they can mount a nu-
clear weapon atop a missile and threaten both their, regional
neighbors and others across the Pacific including the West
Coast of the United States.
The Bush Doctrine of preemption whereby we would
launch an attack to thwart such a destabilizing development is
difficult, if not impossible to play. The problem is a fact of ge-
ography: Seoul, South Korea's capital' city with more than 5
million residents is situated in the western sectionof the penin-
sula within miles of the North Korean border. I have been told
that there are no less than 7 thousand hostile artillery tubes with-
in range of Seoul's citizenry. They represent the hostage against
any preemptive American attack.
The Bush Administration has relied on diplomacy, saying
that there are six regional partners who have an immediate stake
in any outcome. Any solution to this problem must include the
join t concerns and aspirations of not only the two Korean na-
tions, but the United States, Japan, Russia and China as w ell.
Economically, the two Koreas. are as different as night and
day.. In the South, where freedom and entrepreneurialism have
abounded for half a century, the economy has flourished. In the
North, where the Communist dictatorshave ruled with an iron
hand, the economy is a basket case. The gross domestic prod-
uct of South Korea is twenty times that of their northern
cousins. South Korea appears to have' little concern over inva-
sion by the North they don.'t-have the fuel to move their army
more than 50 miles!
As the United States attempts to guide this trouble spot
through troubled diplomatic'waters, there appear to be three
cards we might play. First,, the North Koreans are absolutely
bound to the guidance of China which provides so much of their
sustenance. The Chinese can stop a militant Kim Jong 11in his
tracks, if they so desire. Thus far, we have not been particular-
ly successful, in "convincing" the Chinese that they should rein
in Kim's designs. Can we bring additional pressure to cause
this to happen?
Second, we can rearm Japan so they might deter the North
Koreans. This possibility is problematic and depends on how
threatened the Japanese see themselves. Japan was wasted as a
result of World War II and they swore off any offensive military
capability. Will they feel sufficiently threatened to reverse
course? Will they cross the nuclear threshold in light of their
terrible experience sixty years ago at Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
Third, we have the last line of defense missile defense. In
1983, Ronald Reagan refused to accept no alternative to mutu-
al assured destruction (appropriately named MAD) from in-
coming nuclear armed missiles and launched the Strategic De-
fense Initiative that his detractors dismissed as "Star Wars." Re-
publicans trumpeted missile defense while Democrats gutted it
at every opportunity. Since Republicans have been in charge
roughly twice as long as Democrats during the intervening 23
years, we have a fledgling missile defense capability. That puts
some teeth in our last line of defense.
The Defense Department's Missile Defense Agency is com-
manded by an old friend, Lieutenant General Trey Obering who
incidentally, has roots in nearby Moody AFB -in the late 1970s,
he was an F-4E fighter pilot in the 347th Wing. Obering is a na-
tive of Birmingham, AL and a Notre Dame graduate. He's a
very smart fellow and superb leader. The peace and prosperity
of the free world has a lot riding on General Obering and his
team of scientists and engineers.

A fundraiser was held at the Lee Elementary School in

was sponsored in conjunction with the Midway Church of God,

While Ronald lives in Suwannee County, he has a number
of relatives in Madison County, especially in Lee.
Ronald still has to visit the doctor two times a week and has
lab work done. The medication that he is taking makes it more
likely for him to get skin cancer and cataracts, so he has to pro-
tect himself with sunscreen and sunglasses if he is outside.
Ronald's plans for the future include going to college.
A skeetshooting fundraiser will be held on Saturday, August
5, beginning at 10 a.m. at the home of Wally and Vonnie Davis

Crystal Farnell, of Lee, who also needs a kidney transplant.

According to Emergency Medical Services Director, Juan Bot-
into, he feels that "There has been an increase in the need to
EMS lately due to more traffic on the Interstate. The population
increasing; there is a large elderly population throughout Madi-
son; and it is the summer, which involves many outdoor activi-
ties which means residents have direct contact with the heat.".
The majority of EMS calls are heart attacks, strokes and
Botino commented, "Although most people don't think
about EMS, statistics show that you or your loved ones will use
EMS at least once in their lifetime. Having a good EMS system
improves that safety and quality of life of the citizens to our
county. Having a well-trained and equipped EMS can make a
big difference on patient outcomes. It is like a fire department in
the fact that everyone hopes that they don't have to use it, but
want it available if needed. As you can see by our call volume,
we respond to thousands of residents and visitors each year, and
based on our patient feedback, people are very pleased with the
service EMS offers."

According to an FDLE report, Local law enforcement offi-
cials became aware of Edwards' on-line child pornography ac-
tivities through information received from a subject's computer
seized by the FBI in Salt Lake City, Utah. Analysis of the seized
computer revealed Edwards as being one of several individuals
sending and receiving child pornography. The FDLE is in pos-
session of Edwards' home computer where it will be analyzed
for further evidence.
At present, Edwards is being held under state charges. This
investigation is ongoing and computer analysis will determine if
federal charges will be filed.
Edwards moved .from California to Polk County, Fla. in
February 2006 and is a house parent at the Florida Baptist Chil-

How Will You I
Health Care When I
Provided by Brad Bashaw, E
7 - T.. ]- .....
When you retire, some of your regular expenses are
going to go down. But others are going to go up and top-
ping the "going up" list is health care..Well before you retire,
make sure you've got the resources necessary to deal with
those doctor's '.isits and piescription. drus..:.
Ho\, c',penne ill heeltfi cire be tor you during 3ouir
re[mremeni )e,au ? Here's a number io c'cornider: A 65-year-old
couple retiring today will need, on average, $200,000 set
aside to pay for medical costs in retirement, according to a
recent study by Fidelity Investments. And this number does-
n't even include the cost of over-the-counter medicines, most
dental procedures and, most importantly, long-term care
(such as in-home health care or an extended stay. in a nurs-
Of course, the $200,000 figure is just an average; your
costs may be considerably different. For example, you might
have retiree health coverage from your former employer,
although this seems to be becoming less likely, given the fact
that more and more companies are scaling back on precisely
To prepare yourself for the six-figure sums you might
need to pay for health care, consider these suggestions:
*Stay healthy. Obviously, you can neither prevent all
illnesses nor suspend the natural aging process. However, by
eating right, exercising regularly and reducing stress, you
can improve your health and possibly reduce the odds of
incurring high medical costs in retirement.
*Contribute to a Health Savings Account (HSA). If
you have access to this type of plan at work, consider using
it. Your money has the potential to grow tax deferred, and
you can withdraw funds from your account tax free, provid-
ed withdrawals are used for qualified medical expenses.
Keep in mind, though, that the contribution limits to HSAs
are relatively low, so your savings will probably not grow
enough to cover all, or even most, of your medical costs. Yet,
every dollar can help.
*Plan ahead for long-term care. If you are fortunate,
you will never have to enter a nursing home or require the
services of a home health care professional. Still, you never
know. People who reach age 65 have a 40 percent chance of
entering a nursing home, according to a study by the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services and in some
areas, just one year's stay in a nursing home can easily cost
$100,000. To avoid incurring these catastrophic expenses,
consider putting a long-term care protection plan in place.
*Boost your savings. It's easier said than done, but try
to put away as much as you can while you're working. Fully
fund your IRA each year, and put as much as you can afford
,into your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement
plan. If you "max out" on your IRA and 401(k), you might
want to invest in an annuity, which provides the potential for
tax-deferred growth of earnings and can be structured to pay
an income stream that you can't outlive.
No one can predict the future. But by recognizing the
likely costs of health care during your retirement years, and
by taking the steps necessary to deal with these expenses,
you can hopefully avoid some unhealthy surprises down the

Madison County Carrier 7A
By Jacob Bembry ,.
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Edwin Bailey Browning, Jr. and Faye Terry Browning
have called Madison home all their lives.
Edwin grew up as the son of Edwin "Booze" Brown-
ing, who was an educator and the Madison County School
Superintendent. His mother, Louise Zipperer Browning,
also an educator, as a teacher for many years in the Madi-
son County School District.
Faye grew up in the farming community, south of
Madison, as the daughter of Ernest and Doris Terry.
Edwin said that, as he was growing up, he got a lot of
attention because of the high profile his father had in the
community. He said that his father's nickname, "Booze,"
had come about because he came from a large family of
children. Booze's oldest brother, who was a railroad man,
was 21 years older than the little tyke. When he was bom,
the older brother told "Booze" that he had to be the "Ca-
boose" of the family and so it became it became his nick-
name. The nickname "Caboose" eventually evolved into
the word, "Booze," because one of Edwin, Sr.'s sisters
could not say "caboose." The nickname stuck.
Edwin joked that he had often been asked when was
his father, going to stop drinking, although the elder
Browning was a teetotaler, who never'drank.
As a daughter of a farm family, Faye said that she en-
joyed doing the farm labor, although it was hard work. She
said that she liked working with the others her age and she
said that when the adults began, talking, they would sit
silently and listen to the gossip and other happenings in the
"We learned a lot that way," she said, '. nih a twinkle in
Edwin worked as a soda jerk at the Madison Drug
Store. He joked that it was probably the job for which he
was the most talented and had the most qualifications.
Faye agreed that he could make a good milkshake.
He said that he worked with a young man named
George Davis at the store. George would deliver medicine
to the older people in the community on a bicycle. One
day, George left riding his bicycle and he returned carrying
the wreckage of his bicycle, all crumpled up, in his arms.
Jim Stanley, the owner of the drug store and the father of
Emergency Management Director Jim Stanley, saw it and
asked what had happened.
George related how he was going to turn onto a street
and that he had the right-of-way to make the turn. "I had
the right-of-way and Mr. Lewis Hill was coming and he
didn't see that I had the right-of-way, and he ran over me,"
Lewis Hill was a moonslining legend in Madison
County. He understood the law, including traffic laws, as
only he could understand them. Stanley asked George,
"Don't you know when Mr. Lewis Hill is on the road that
he always has the right-of-way?"
Faye said that the job she had while she was in high
school was a clerk at Kramer's Daylight Department Store.
She said that she learned a lot about working hard and how
to deal with the customers from Mr. and Mrs. Kramer. She
said that she would have to work from eight in the mom-
ing until eight in the evening at the store on Saturdays..
When the day was through, they would have to sweep the
sidewalks and the store.
"It was hard work but I enjoyed it," she said.
As both Faye and Edwin were about to enter their high
school years, rock 'n roll hit, and it hit big. Stars like Fats
Domino made an impact, but "Elvis was the king," Edwin
Faye said that it was a calmer time and everyone had
time to sit and relax.
Dwight Eisenhower was the president during their for-
mative years in the 1950s. Edwin said, "The country was
happy and well-governed and people realized it."
"These were some of the happiest times we ever had,"
Faye said. "We had time to relax and enjoy life. It was a
less hectic time."
Edwin graduated from high school in 1957. A blue
chip athlete for the Madison High School Red Devils, he
earned a football scholarship to Florida State University,
where he was a running back. It didn't take him long to fig-
ure out that he would make his living with his education
and not on the gridiron. After graduating from FSU in 1961
with a major in History and Political Science, he attended
the University of Florida Law School, where he graduated
Faye graduated from high school in 1958 and from
FSU in 1961. She majored in Elementary Education and
Social Studies. After graduation, she began teaching
school. She taught in Green Cove Springs and Williston
before returning to teach at Madison High School. She
continued teaching after the birth of their son, Bailey, but
retired from the teaching profession when their daughter,
Leeanne, was born.
After graduating from law school, Edwin became a
partner in a law firm with Turner Davis. He said that one
of his first duties was to become the school board's attor-
ney. The greenhorn attorney showed up for his first school
board meeting and was given quizzical looks. He looked
back at them and told them, "Mr. Davis told me to come
Edwin served as the school board attorney for 35 years
and served as the county commission's attorney for eight
years, replacing Ernest M. Page as the board's attorney.
During his law career, he worked several high profile
cases, including one where he received a $7,300,000.00
.judgment against Mobil Chemical Corporation. The Dis-
trict Court of Appeals later overturned the judgment. Ed-
win now serves as a judge on the DCA and joked, "I have
to have respect for the Court, since they took away my re-
Another high profile case that Edwin worked was
when a woman had gone to shop in Jacksonville. She was
injured and got a herniated disk. In the case, the value of a
housewife was determined at $16,000, since she could not
perform household tasks, which she would have to be paid
for in the job market. Edwin won the case and it made na-
tional headlines, since a housewife's value had been deter-
mined. The story received coverage on ABC News and
other national outlets.
"That's when I asked for a raise," Faye quipped, over
her husband's success in receiving the judgment for the
Faye does volunteer work with the Madison County
Foundation for Excellence in Education (MCFEE).
"I am happy to continue working in education with the
Foundation," she said.
She is also involved in the First Baptist Church in
Madison. She has worked with the RAs and GAs there and
has been a Sunday School teacher for years. She started out
teaching young adults and the class stuck with her into
their older years.
Edwin is a Deacon Emeritus at the First Baptist
Church and served as the church clerk for 36 years.
Edwin became the last appellate judge appointed by
Gov. Lawton Chiles in 1998.
"Lawton attended my investiture ceremony and died
eight days later," Edwin said.
Edwin is scheduled to become the Chief Judge of the
District Court of Appeals in 2007. He will face mandatory
retirement from the court when he is 70 years old.
Edwin and Faye's son, Bailey, is an attorney. He has a
son, Bailey IV, and a daughter, Riley. Their daughter,
Leeanne Browning-Kruse, is a doctor.

Every used vehicle in inventory at.Prince Automotive locations in Tifton, Valdosta and
S O Douglas are included in the ONE PRICE Event. Incredible prices and payments have
been posted on our entire inventory of preowned vehicles. You'll see savings
immediately-no negotiations will be necessary and salespeople will be on hand simply
to arrange test drives and assist with paperwork. Plus, all posted prices are
guaranteed to be the lowest in South Georgia and North Florida.
Due to the 0% Financing Model Yearend Clearance events, we're absolutely
overloaded with late model local low mileage trade-ins. To reduce that inventory level
we .know that reduced pricing will be necessary and we've done that.
Every used vehicle will be plainly marked with the GUARANTEED ONE PRICE and you will not be able to buy a comparable
vehicle for a price that low anywhere else. Take advantage of this week long event to enjoy the most convenient car shopping
that you will ever experience at the lowest prices of the year.
You will not have to negotiate. The posted prices will convince you of how hard we're working to earn your business.
Many of the vehicles offered during this event have been through the PRINCE CERTIFIED PREOWNED process. This
takes the vehicle through a 72 point inspection and let's you buy with the confidence of a dealer backed local preowned
vehicle warranty. This warranty is provided by the PRINCE AUTOMOTIVE GROUP and service may be performed under it's
conditions at any of our dealerships, no warranty companies and special conditions, just a rock solid preowned warranty
backed up by our own service departments. See us for the details.
Every vehicle that has been through the PRINCE CERTIFIED PREOWNED process includes a 3 day, 200 mile return
guarantee. If you're not satisfied with a PRINCE CERTIFIED PREOWNED vehicle, you may return it at anytime during the
first 3 days or 200 miles, NO QUESTIONS ASKED. See us for the details.
All One Price offers will end at close of business, Saturday, July 22nd. Prices offered during that time as well as other
offers in conjunction with any sale will be null and void after the close of business, Saturday, July 22nd. Vehicles offered
during the event will no longer be guaranteed available at prices offered during the event.

In order to make
the roads safer, here are some tips
to prevent drunk driving:
Always have a designated driver. If you go out
with- several friends, rotate drivers each week.
Q Have a key bowl if you are hosting a party. When
you have all the keys, put them somewhere safe.
Make guests check with you to retrieve their keys.
If they are inebriated, have them present their
Call a taxi if you are at a party and become
inebriated. If there is no public transportation, try tod
find someone you trust to take you home.
Q Try to talk anyone who is inebriated and plans to
drive out of it. If they insist on driving, tell them you
will find a ride with someone else rather than
Have designated drivers wear brightly colored,
shirts that say "Sober" or "D.D." if you run a bar:or;t
club. This will serve as a reminder for all drivers t
be safe as well as help people find their
designated drivers. Refuse to sell "Sober" drivers
alcohol, but offer them free soft drinks instead. to,
reward them for promoting responsible thinking.
O Ask to stay the night if you are drinking at the
home of a friend and cannot drive.
Do not drive tired. Tired drivers can have slow
reaction times similar to those who are inebriated.
Driving drunk and tired is often fatal. If you are tired
and inebriated, try to find a designated driver. If
you cannot, consider sleeping in your car in the
parking lot or at your hosts home before driving.

Knowing The Odds And Ends Of DUIs
By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Driving under the influ-
ence of alcoholic beverages,
chemical substances or con-
trolled substances is all con-
sidered a DUI.

prisonment. People who are
charged with multiple DUIs
face extreme punishment.
People who receive their
first DUI are faced with a
fine of no less than 250 dol-
lars, but no more than 500
dollars. If the defendant con-
sumed a large amount of al-

dant can be charged with at
least 1,000 dollars and no
more than 2,000 dollars.
People who receive their
third DUI, more than ten
years apart from their second
conviction are faced with. a
fine of no less than 1,000 dol-
lars, but no more than 2,500
dollars. If the defendant con-
sumed a large amount of al-
cohol and their blood/breath
alcohol level (BAL) of :20 or
higher or if there is a minor
in the vehicle than the defen-
dant can be charged with at
least 2,000 dollars.
People who re-
ceive their third DUI,

According to the Florida
Highway Patrol (FHP), in
2005, there were approxi-
mately a minimum of 15 fa-
tal crashes for Madison
County's district including
Madison, Jefferson and Tay-
lor counties. At least four of
these were alcohol related.
According to the FHP, in
2005, there were 26 fatal
crashes that resulted in at
least seven alcohol related
fatal crashes. To break down
the statistics even more,
there were 12 alcohol-related
crashes in Madison, eight al-
cohol related crashes in Jef-
ferson and six alcohol relat-
ed crashes in Taylor county.
Driving under the influ-
ence is a serious offense.
DUIs can take not only your
life, but someone else's who
may be completely innocent
so please, take all of this in-
formation into consideration
and think twice before get-
ting behind the wheel of a
vehicle while being influ-
enced in any way.

One of the most effective ways
to find a job is to network. Spread
the word that you are looking for a
new job. First, tell your family,
friends, neighbors, and acquain-
tances ... everyone. Even tell your
mail carrier and your hair stylist.
When it comes to networking
though, there is more to consider
than simply whom you know. You
have to think about whom you do
not know. Then, find a way to get
to know those people. Once you
have exhausted your personal con-
nections, it is time to focus on
meeting some new faces.
There are plenty of ways to start
building a network.
First, get organized.
No matter what your occupa-
tion, there's a professional organi-
zation for you!
National and international pro-
fessional associations often have
local chapters where you can meet
other professionals in your field.
And most hold conferences and
other events designed specifically
Professional organizations can
also help you keep up-to-date on
the latest developments in your in-
dustry. They often provide mem-
bers with the latest industry news,
trends and research as well as
training and education. This infor-
mation can come in very handy in
interviews. Not sure what organi-
zation would be right for you?
This list, organized by topic, can
help you get started.
Are you looking for regular
contact with a group of like-mind-
ed professionals in your industry?
If so, then take a class. From art
design to advertising to auto re-
pair, you should be able to. find a
class in your area that is relevant

shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determina-
tion (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57 F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding
and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention will be only at the approval
of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205 of
the Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.).
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action
is based must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's filt or
identification number, if known; .
(b) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner, the name, ad-, .i

tion or proposed action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the

ment's action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall con-
tain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, EA.C.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be
different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by any such final.decision of the Department on the application have the
right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the require-
ments set forth above.

Madison and took possession of
a .22 pistol. This pistol was
identified as being one of the
firearms stolen during the bur-
glary in Madison County. This
recovered firearm was linked to
O'Neil Robinson and a juvenile, a
Sergeant William M. Greene,
and members of the B.A.T.F. in-
terviewed Robinson and, as a re-
sult, numerous other firearms
were recovered within the city
limits of Madison.
On the evening of Tuesday,
July 11, Lieutenant Tina M. De-
Motsis of the Madison County
Sheriff's Office and members of
the B.A.T.F. checked a residence Jo p _4u
on Booker Avenue after receiv- --.
ing information that Marcus Jer-
maine Smith was in possession i
of.several firearms. Smith was
not present, but he called the res-
idence several times while law t'
enforcement officers were pre- A .223 automatic rifle
sent. A stolen assault rifle, two was among the weapons
handguns and three bags of .223 recovered that were stolen
rifle ammunition were recovered from a local business. (Pho-
from this residence. On the to Submitted)
morning of Wednesday, July 12, Madison County Sheriff's Office
Chief Investigator Lieutenant Mark W. Jodst interviewed Smitfi.
Lieutenant Joost subsequently placed him under arrest for Dealing in
Stolen Property and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.
akOn the afternoon of July 12, Lieutenant Joost and Lieutenant
DeMotsis went to the residence of Cory T. Johnson. Johnson had
been previously interviewed by members of B.A.T.F. and released
after receiving information that he may be in possession of some of
the stolen firearms. During an interview by Lieutenant Joost, John-
son was evasive and appeared deceptive. When Lieutenant Joost and
Lieutenant DeMotsis started searching the area around his residence,
Johnson abruptly left. During the search of the area, Lieutenant
Joost recovered two stolen handguns and ammunition. On the
evening of July 12, Lieutenant Joost once again interviewed John-
son. After receiving information and evidence that linked Johnson to
the stolen firearms, Lieutenant Joost placed him under arrest for.
Dealing in Stolen Property.
On the afternoon of Thursday, July 13, Lieutenant Joost inter-
viewed a resident of the Drive-In Trailer Park in Madison County in
reference to the stolen firearms. An additional handgun was recov-
ered during this contact. Later that afternoon,'Lieutenant Joost re-
ceived information from a confidential informant that a stolen hand-
gun was located in a dumpster beside a business on Rutledge Street
in Madison. Lieutenant Joost searched the dumpster and recovered
another stolen handgun and ammunition.
Several other stolen firearms are being sought by the Madison
County Sheriff's Office as the investigation continues. Individuals
may have purchased these firearms without knowledge of them be-
ing stolen. It is advised that any such person contact the sheriff's of-
fice immediately in an effort to avoid possible criminal charges.
Anyone who destroys evidence related to this investigation could
face felony charges.
Anyone who has information concerning this investigation is
asked to contact Lieutenant Mark W. Joost or Lieutenant Tina M.
DeMotsis of the Madison County Sheriff's Office at 850-973-4001.
