To Be Set Thursday Morning


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A murder trial date is
scheduled to be set Thurs-
day, December 7, in Madi-
son County Circuit Court.
Judge Leandra Johnson
will be presiding.
Court will convene at 9
a.m.
A county murder trial
for Michael Lee Dover
should be set.
In late November,
2005, a four-day manhunt
by the Madison County
Sheriff's Office culminated
with the arrest of 35-year-
old Michael Lee Dover at
3:01 AM on the morning of
Saturday, November 26, by
members of the Madison


Michael Dover
County Sheriff's Office's
Felony Interdiction Spe-
cialized Tactics team.
According to a Sher-
iff's Department report by
Lt. Mark Joost, Dover was
sought by the Madison
County Sheriff's Office
since he battered and at-
,and ,tL


tempted to kidnap his es-
tranged wife on Thursday,
November 17, 2005.
At approximately 9
p.m. on Tuesday, Novem-
ber 22, Dover shot and
killed 50-year-old Ricky B.
Yates at a residence near
Cherry Lake in Madison-
County. The autopsy re-
vealed that Yates sustained
two gunshot wounds, one
to his torso and the other to
his head. Either of these
wounds had the potential
to be instantly fatal. Mem-
bers of the Sheriff's Office
pursued: leads and devel-
oped information through-
out this investigation.
At approximately 9:19
p.m. on Friday, November


25, the Madison County
Sheriff's Office received a
tip that Michael Lee Dover
was at a residence located
on Coachwhip Avenue,
north of Madison.
Lieutenant Mark K.
Joost, Deputy Chris An-
drews and Deputy John
Sleigher of the Sheriff's
Office Tactical Team re-
sponded to the residence,
along with Sergeant
Homer Q. Melgaard and
Deputy Mike Maurice..
Upon their arrival, the offi-
cers received information
that Dover had just fled
into a wooded area on the
west side of the residence.
After checking several
nearby structures, a


perimeter was established
and additional law enforce-
ment officers were called
out in an effort to contain
Dover and notify nearby
citizens. K-9 assistance
from Madison Correction-
al Institution (Madison
C.I.), Hamilton Correc-
tional Institution (H.C.I.)

"It's going on all the
time," Jeff Summers, Public
Information Officer for the
Fish and Wildlife Conmmis-
sion, said, referring to the il-
legal dumping of carcasses
alongside roads and on pri-
vate property.
Summers said that the
dumping of wildlife falls un-
der the Florida litter law and
penalties for littering can be
imposed.
"If they remove some-
thing like a backstrap (from a
wild hog) or any other part of


i ^ nta


.. ng


the animal and dump it, then
it falls under 'w ill ful waste of
wildlife." Summers said.
"That is also a crime. If you
kill it, you're supposed to use
it."
Summers said that if any-
one sees another person
dumping the wildlife illegal-
ly, they should get a license
plate number, a description of
the vehicle and a description
of the person and call the
FWC.

Scam Alert
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Piublishing. Inc.
A telemarketing company is apparently
running a scam in Madison County.
The company claims that they are sell-
ing ads for the football program next season
on behalf of the Madison County High
School cheerleading squad. The company
even gives the name of the cheerleadiig
coach as a reference.
Jud. Hill. the MCHS cheerleading Ben
coach, said that the cheerleading squad is not Killingsworth
taking part in selling the ads.
Ben Killingsworth, principal at MCHS, said, "We do not
outsource ad\ ertising or any type of sales."
Killingsworth added that if anyone would be doing anything
of this nature at the high school, it would have to be a student or
a member of the booster club, for it to be legitimate.

Cattle prices have been
dropping lately. According to
Madison County Extension
Agent Kevin Campbell, cow
prices historically drop in win-
ter in North Florida. "At least
they have for the last 50
years," Campbell said.
While the feeder calf mar-
ket has dropped somewhat, the
price of poor quality stock, es-
pecially calves has dropped
significantly.
"The full-weight calves
are still bringing around a dol-
lar," said Townsend Livestock
Market owner Abb Townsend.
"But they have to be quality
stock. The number-two calves
are a lot cheaper."
In Madison County the
big problem is the hay supply
coupled with the lack of grass
available in winter. Many cat-
tle farmers are deciding to
lighten their herds, culling
older and open cows. The in-
crease in numbers at the sale
barns is causing the lower
prices according to Campbell.
"People realize they don't


have enough grass/winter
grazing/hay so they start try-
ing to sell cattle-fewer mouths
to feed," Campbell said. "The
drought has cut hay produc-
tion by about 50 percent
across the region so even more
cows than usual are being
sold. It's the old supply and
demand cliche'."
Townsend said, "They're
getting cheaper because it's
that time of year, and the corn
prices. A shortage of feed in
general has got things de-
pressed a little bit."
On a national level prices
for cattle are lower as well.
According to the Ohio Beef
Cattle Letter, "It's the time for
seasonal weakness in feeder
cattle prices and this is cur-
rently coupled with large feed-
lot inventories and weak fed.
cattle prices. Additionally, the
drought in the Southern Plains
has resulted in generally poor
wheat pasture conditions and
little demand for winter stock-
ers. The result is weak demand
across the board for light and
heavy feeder cattle."

Nabbed By FHP


By Jacob Bembry

The Florida Highway Pa-
trol arrested a fugitive from
NMississippi on charges of sexu-
al crimes on Wednesday, No-

vember 29, at the eastbound

Three Sought In Reference

To Aggravated Battery
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Three suspects are being sought in reference to an aggravat-
ed assault on Friday evening, December 1, in Greenville.
According to a Madison County Sheriff's Office report, Cpl.
Mel Renz was dispatched to Cook Street in Greenville in refer-
ence to a harassment incident between with the victim and Mon-
ica Miller. When he arrived on the scene, approximately 20 peo-
ple were there.
As Renz exited his patrol car, people began trying to tell him
what happened. He made contact with a witness, who said that a
white Chevrolet Monte Carlo, with three women (identified as
Monica Miller, Audrey Miller and Alenna Latera Anderson) got
out of the car with weapons.
The witness said that Monica Miller had a crow bar, Audrey
Miller had a bat and Anderson had a straight razor. All three sus-
pects made threats to kill the victim and began to swing the
weapons at the victim and at the witness.
The two women stated that, when Renz arrived on the

School Board Members Earn Huge Salary


FREEMASONRY

A Family Tradition
Membership in the Masonic Bodies has been a tradition in
our family.
My father, William Buford Selman, is the oldest living
member of the Madison Masonic Lodge. At 96 years old, he
has his 65-year-membership pin, given to him by the District
Grand Master, Eric Daniel, two years ago. There are very few
Masons who have had the honor of being in the Masonic Order
this many years.
I have seen what the Masonic Lodge has meant to my father
and a host of other men, whom I have admired and respected
through the years. And, I have seen what it means to my hus-
band.
Masonic history goes back many, many years, with many
presidents and authors of our Constitution being Masons. In a
book entitled, Morals and Dogma, the author tells us, "Mason-
ry is a succession of allegories, the mere vehicles of great le-
sions in morality and philosophy."
In this vein, many men have had the answers to the great
questions found in the greatest Light If they have the Light
and remember these things, then not only can they be proud to
answer questions, but be proud to leads other toward the Light.
Just a few weeks ago, I was proud to have taken a. picture
of four generations of Masons in our family my father,
William Buford Selman; my husband, Tommy Greene; our son,
Harvey Greene III, and his son, James Noland Greene, and our
son, William Greene. When Noland was inducted into the Ma-
sons, so was our son-in-law, Paul Kinsley.
Our daughter, Emerald Kinsley, is the Worthy Matron of the
Eastern Stars, the sister organization of the Masons. My moth-
er and father were Eastern Stars, as were my grandmother,
Roberta Lanier Green, and my aunts Allene Tadlock, Frances
Lunsford, Irene Johnson, and Rosa V. Zipperer. Also Eastern
Star members are our daughters-in-law, Janice and Lisa Greene.
It is with proud tradition that Paul and Noland join the family in
their Masonic work.
The Masonic slogan is "Taking good men, and making
them better." (Please see Page 9Afor a picture of the Masonic

The cost of living was twice that in Madison, and to top offf
things, this young woman and little girl lost a baby and a sister
who died at 11 months of age. The pain, and hurt, and fear that

perimeter and notify residents, Lieutenant Joost, Deputy
'Andrews, Deputy Sleigher and Madison Police Depart-
Tnent Officer Joey Agner accompanied the H.C.I, K-9
team during the initial track of Dover.
The H.C.I. team, consisting of Lieutenant Stanley
Cribbs, Sergeant John Morris and Sergeant Chris Sapp
quickly picked up Dover's scent. During this time, Pi-
lo.t/Deputy Rick Debacker and Pilot/Deputy Lee Majors
of L.C.S.O.'s aviation unit, Scout 1, arrived and were ap-
parently instrumental in keeping Dover pinned down
with their aircraft's F.L.I.R. capability as well as their oth-
er night vision equipment. After several hours, the Madi-
son C.I. K-9 team,'consisting of Sergeant Billy, Richard-
son, Sergeant Todd Richardson, Officer Tim Robinson
and Officer Donnie Bass, and the Mayo C.I. K-9 team,
consisting of Warden Jim Whitt,, Sergeant Whendell
Green, Sergeant Lance Lamb and Officer Edward Harris,
relieved the H.C.I. K-9 team. The Mayo C.I. team, who
were iat this time accompanied by Lieutenant Joost,
Deputy Andrews, Deputy Sleigher and Officer Agner,
quickly picked up Dover's scent and tracked him in a
northeasterly direction to a large hay barn.
At search of the barn was conducted but Dover was
not located. The Mayo C.I. team once again picked up
Dover's scent and tracked him in a southeasterly direc-
tion towards St. Thomas A.M.E. Church Road. Shortly
before 3 AM on the morning of Saturday, 26 November
2005, the team came to a yard with a large metal storage
building. Deputy Sleigher covered Lieutenant Joost,
Deputy Andrews and Officer Agner as they entered the
building to search for Dover. During the subsequent
search of the building, Lieutenant Joost located a rolled-
upi mattress in the building. Suspecting that Dover may be
irngide the mattress, Joost positioned Deputy Andrews,
Deputy Sleigher and Officer Agner behind cover near the
foot of the mattress while he took a position, overlooking
the center of the mattress. Without knowing if anyone
-was inside the mattress, Lieutenant Joost instructed
Iover to' come out with his hands visible. When there
ovas no response, Lieutenant Joost motioned for Deputy
Ahndrews to move the foot of the mattress from behind
"o6ver so that he could engage Dover if necessary. After
tl mattress was lifted, away, Dover quickly displayed
lhis empty hands and he was handcuffed without further
incident. Two loaded .38 Special revolvers were recov-
ered from Dover's person.
Michael Lee Dover is being held ini the Madison
County Jail without bond on charges of Murder In The
First Degree, Kidnaping and Domestic Violence Bat-
tery.


Cattle


cont from Page 1A


The skyrocketing price of corn is a major contributing fac-
tor to the tanking cattle market. Feed lot owners out west are
buying fewer cattle right now because of already high invento-
ries of feeder calves .and the increased costs to feed them out.
Purdue University Extension marketing specialist Chris
Hurt said, "Over the past eight crop years from 1998 to 2005,
U.S. corn prices averaged just $2.05 per bushel. Historically, the
'cattle industry has been the animal segment that makes the
b' biggest adjustments to high-priced feed and that will likely be
the cage this time as well."
Hurt added, "The October 1, 2006 inventory is the largest
:'since the current records began in 1996. Feedlot managers have
'placed large numbers of calves this summer and early fall, and
'aid high prices for the privilege of ownership. Now, feed prices
have moved much higher, raising the costs of production and
break-even levels."
W: hat all this means to Madison ranchers is the high price of
corn is affecting feeder calf prices while the lack of grass and
fiay and the time of the year is affecting the price of other stock.
'1'Good replacement heifers have been steady," Townsend said.
'Good replacement cows are holding at 60 cents and up. But the
quality of the cattle in the market is off a bit. We've been getting
some thin ones."
"The initial surge of higher feed prices is being felt most
heavily by two industry sectors," Hurt said. "The first is feedlot
managers who paid high prices for calves and did not have their
needed feed input costs hedged. The second and biggest losers
from much higher feed prices so far are the cow-calf operations
.and some backgrounders."
Hurt added cow and calf operations will be hit hard because
as long as feed prices remain high, lower calf prices can be ex-
pected.
"It's too early to understand all of the impacts and to make
accurate projections, but the reality of higher feed prices has ar-
rived, and the cattle industry must make major adjustments,"
Hurt said.

Rangel's Draft
In the run up to the 2004 election, a rumor began to circu-
late in high schools and colleges that as soon as the'election was
complete, President Bush would reinstate military conscription
(aka: the draft) to provide manpower for his War on Terror. The
rumor was spread by leftist organizations like MoveOn.org that
wanted to influence more young people to vote for Democrats
and presidential candidate John Kerry. You might recall, I
wrote a couple of columns at the time debunking the myth.
At the time, there happened to be draft legislation in the
House of Representatives offered by Congressman Charles
Rangel, a long-serving Democrat from Harlem. When the nasty
rumor %% would not go away, Republicans in charge of Congress
brought the bill to the floor for debate and yote. Democrats
cried foul but could not stop the process. The bill was over-
whelming defeated 402-2. Congressman Rangel voted against
his own bill!
Fast-forward two years. Now that the 2006 election is his-
tory and Democrats will take control of Congress in January, in-
coming House Ways and Means Committee chairman Charlie
Rangel has raised the issue of the draft once again. His theory
is that if \\e hat\e military) conscription, a future president will
be much less likely to enter into a foreign war such as Bush did
in Iraq. He says,. "it's a matter of fairness." Uh-oh whenev-
er a liberal mentions the word fairness, I smell a rat.
The theory is entirely untested, but history suggests that it
won't make a difference. The existence of a draft did not dis-
suade Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy or Johnson from sending
large contingents of troops to fight on foreign soil.
Rangel's idea was quickly slapped down by the incoming
Democratic House leaders, Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer.
They won't touch military conscription with a ten-foot pole
which indicates they are interested in winning future elections -
good for them. Rangel is a stubborn fellow and keeps talking
about holding hearings on the idea. Although very outspoken,
the 77 year-old gets away with such because he is so affable.
Still, in his new leadership role, he is going to have to guard-his
speech more carefully.
There are two overwhelming reasons why we will not draft
young men and women for service in our armed forces. First,
the All-Volunteer force since its inception in 1973 has, been
hugely successful. For more than three 'decades, the military,
services have attracted new recruits because they want to join,
riot because they are forced into service. In the meantime, the
population pool of candidates has increased while the demands
of the military have lessened. In short, we have more to choose
from and since the modern battlefield emphasizes technology
more than manpower, we need fewer fighting men. Charlie
Rangel is stuck in a time warp of 1948 when he was drafted into
the Army, but times change and we have moved on.
Second, we are not going to reinstitute the draft because it
violates the idea of choice. Americans like to have choices and
resent being told that they must join an organization. Freedom
and individual liberty are ingrained in the American culture.
Let's reduce this argument to simple, common sense. Role
play with me for a moment; pretend you are a GI sharing a fox-
hole with another soldier and the enemy is all around you.
Would you rather your buddy be a volunteer or a conscript? Be-
cause volunteers are more dependable than draftees and my life
was at stake, I'd take the volunteer every time.
Mr. Rangel's draft is going nowhere and he must know it.
But just in case you want to express your opinion.one way or the
other, you may write the good congressman at this address:

The Honorable Charles B. Rangel
2354 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515
I have nothing against Mr. Rangel, but isn't this just like a
liberal to try a little social engineering at the expense of choice
and personal liberty? Throw away something that works very
well for an unproven theory based on outdated information.
Give me a break.
When you go to sleep tonight, keep one eye open because
Congress is in session and come January, liberal Democrats like
Charlie Rangel will be in charge.

top computer to transmit im-
ages of children engaging in
sexually explicit conduct to
another individual with whom
he was communicating online.
A search warrant was execut-
ed at Odle's residence, and
forensic examination of the
computers and electronic stor-
age devices revealed in excess
of 5,000 images, including
three video files, of children
engaged in sexually explicit
conduct.
The case was investigated
by the Federal Bureau of In-
vestigation, including the
FBI's Innocent Images Task
Force. The FBI's Innocent Im-
ages Task Force is a multi-
agency task force comprised
of the FBI, the Hillsborough
County Sheriff's Office, the
Largo Police Department, the
Manatee County Sheriff's Of-
fice, the Lakeland Police De-
partment, and the United
States Probation Office. The
Task Force is an intelligence
driven, proactive investigative
initiative that combats the
proliferation of child pornog-
raphy and child sexual ex-
ploitation facilitated by the
Internet. The mission of the
Innocent Images Task Force is
to reduce the vulnerability of
children to acts of sexual ex-
ploitation and abuse facilitat-
ed through computers; to
identify and rescue witting
and unwitting child victims;
and to investigate and prose-
cute sexual predators who use
the Internet to sexually ex-
ploit children for personal and
financial gain. The case was
prosecuted by Assistant Unit-
ed States Attorney Rachelle
DesVaux Bedke.


Winter Springs Man Arrested

For Child Pornography
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement's Computer
Crime Center with assistance from the Seminole County Sher-
iff's Office yesterday arrested Jack Randolph Nation of Winter
Springs, Fla. Nation was charged with 11 counts of sexual per-
formance by a child related to the possession of child pornogra-
phy and one count of transmission of pornography by electron-
ic device or equipment. Both offenses are third-degree felonies.
This investigation began after FDLE identified another in-
dividual that had been distributing child pornography in the Ya-
hoo group "Petit Picture Traders" to other group members. This
investigation subsequently led to the identification of Nation
who was also a member of this group. Following the seizure of
Nation's computer by FDLE, a forensic examination of the com-
puter disclosed the presence of numerous images suspected to
depict child pornography. These images were submitted to the
National Center for Missing and Exploited Children Exploited
Child Unit who was instrumental in the identification of these
children.
FDLE and the Seminole County Sheriff's Office are, both
members of, the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children
Task Force, a federally-supported program providing training to
law enforcement officers throughout the country.
Nation was apprehended, without incident at his residence
by the Seminole County Sheriff's .Office and is being held at the
Seminole County Jail on a $55,000 bond.

Georgia Man Sentenced To

Decade In Federal Prison For

Internet Solicitation Of Minor

And Obstructucton
United States Attorney Gregory R. Miller, Northern District of
Florida, announced November 28 that Mark Segalla, 49, of Winder,
Georgia, was sentenced by Senior United States District Judge
Lacey A. Collier to 10 years in federal prison for using a computer
to persuade, induce, entice or coerce a minor female to engage in
sexual. acfitL iti and for obstruction of justice After serving, his
prison term, Segalla will be on supervised release for the rest of his
life. As a result of his conviction, Segalla must register as a sex of-
fender.
A jury convicted Segalla of both crimes in September. The jury
heard evidence that the Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office con-
ducted an undercover online investigation through "Yahoo Chat,"
during which an investigator posed as a 15-year-old 'female resident
of Milton, Florida. For a period of fifteen months, Segalla "chatted"
with whom he believed to be "Lori." The government introduced
evidence of Segalla's "chat logs," in which he used sexually explicit
language to tell "Lori" that he wanted to have. sex with her, and
wanted her to return to Georgia to live with him. The jury heard ev-
idence that in May 2005, Segalla told "Lori" he was traveling from
Georgia to Texas and asked her to meet and spend the night with
him in Milton. Days before traveling to Florida in June 2006, Segal-
la told "Lori" what he wanted to do with her sexually. He made
arrangements to meet "Lori" at a Santa Rosa County restaurant,
where he was arrested as he approached an undercover Santa Rosa
County Deputy posing as "Lori." After his federal indictment, the
Federal Bureau of Investigation discovered that Segalla had in-
structed his brother to perform a "total destructive restore" on his
computer. The brother testified that after leaving Segalla's home in
Winder, Georgia, he met with Segalla in Milton, where Segalla told
him to "destroy" Segalla's computer after the brother left Florida.
This case resulted from the cooperative law enforcement: ef-
forts of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Santa Rosa
County Sheriff's Office. Praising the work of both agencies, Unit-
ed States Attorney Miller agreed with the argument of the prosecu-
tor, Assistant United States Attorney Tiffany H. Sims: "Children
lose their innocence because of the predatory practices of men like
Segalla." United States Attorney Miller affirmed the commitment
of his office and federal agencies in partnership with State and lo-
cal agencies to vigorously work to protect the children of the North-
ern District of Florida from this danger.

Consider These
Year-end Financial Tips


Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones


If you're like. most people, you're probably amazed
at how fast the year went by. But while you've still got a
few weeks left in 2006, take the time to consider some
year-end financial moves. Here are a few to think about:

Review your investment strategies. Your life can
change significantly over the course of a year. You may
have gotten married or remained: you might have had a
child,or grandchild; you might have decided to change
jobs or open your own business the list could go on and
on. And for every single one of these changes in your
life, you very well might need to change your invest-
ment strategies.
Add to your retirement plan. If you have a 401(k),
403(b) or 457(b), your employer may allow you to make
extra contributions before the endof the year. Since you
typically make these contributions with "pre-tax" dol-
lars, the more you contribute, the lower your taxable
income may be. And of course, your money grows on a
tax-deferred basis.
Sell off some of your "winners." The stock market
had a pretty good year in 2006, so you may well end up
with some large net capital gains. If that's the case, you
might want to consider selling some stock to generate a
loss before year-end a move that could reduce the
amount of tax you pay this year. Keep in mind, though,
that if you do sell stock to generate a loss, the IRS'
"wash sale" rules will prohibit you from purchasing sub-
stantially similar stock within 30 days before or after the
sale that generated the loss.
Make a charitable gift. By making a gift to a chari-
table organization, you'll help a group whose work you
support and you'll also help yourself. You'll get an
immediate tax break for your contribution, and, if you
give an appreciated asset, such as stock, you'll avoid
having to pay the eventual capital gains taxes when the
stock is sold. Plus, you'll be removing an asset from
your estate, thereby reducing the likelihood of incurring
estate taxes. Before making any moves, though, check
with your tax professional.
Put extra money to work. If you have a large
amount of cash to invest, and it's "sitting around" earn-
ing interest, you might want to shift some of the income
to next year by investing in a short-term Certificate of
Deposit or Treasury bill that matures in 2007.
"Grade" your investments' performance. It's, a
good idea to review your investment portfolio at least
once a year and the end of the year is as good a time as
any. As you look over your year-end statements, ask
yourself if your investments have performed as you had
anticipated.
While no one can predict the future, the best
investors plan for, and often achieve, a certain rate of
return or at least a return that lies in a fairly narrow
range each year. How do they do it? By understanding
their investments and by choosing a mix that best
reflects their individual risk tolerance and time horizon.
So, if each year you find yourself "unpleasantly sur-
prised" at your portfolio's performance, you probably
need to make some changes.
By taking these steps before 2006 ends, you just
might make 2007 a happy new year.

The number of adoptions of
children in foster care has re-
cently risen dramatically, with
many states doubling or even
tripling adoptions. Of the ap-
proximately 300,000 U.S. chil-
dren who enter the foster care
system each year, about half re-
turn to their birth parents. Some
are sent to live with relatives,
and about one in 10 are adopted
by families outside their own.
In Madison County, there
are 4,739 children and 6,629
families who live and work in
the community.


lie Are Reap
There are several reasons
why biological parents cannot
care for their children such as fi-
nancial difficulties, emotional
problems, drug or alcohol abuse
and more. Many children come
into foster care because their
parents either died or abandoned
them and some are removed
from their homes because of
abuse and neglect.
In comparison to Taylor and
Jefferson Counties, Madison has
the highest rate of children, in
need of a foster home. In Madi-
son County 55 children are in
need of a foster home and 77
children, and their families, who

WAIT Training To Benefit


Madison Community


By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
WAIT! Why Am I Tempted tWAIT is
a training program that helps building
community support and the understanding
of abstinence, relationships, personal char-
acter and marriage preparation education.
The program trains teachers, youth
leaders, medical personnel, policy makers.
teenagers, community leaders and parents
that everyone has a choice to make posi-
tive decisions. The program's main goal is
to try to change behavior rather than trying
to change consequences.
Additionally. WAIT provides speakers
for assemblies and community events the
knowledge on how to provide a powerful
presentation that may be life-long lasting.
The WAIT Training Organization was
formed in 2001 after several people were
alarmed that the children of today's world
have been the target of confusing and
provocative messages about sexuality and
that more teens were engaging in risk-tak-
ing behavior like drugs. alcohol, sex and


smoking at younger ages.
WAIT provides training to empower
teens to reach the goal of abstaining from
high-risk behaviors and to encourage
character development, relationship skills
and abstinence until and in preparation for
marriage. It increases the value of healthy
relationships, behavioral restraint and
marriage preparation education.
Also. the program educates parents,
the primary and most effective educators,
mobilizes the community to find common
ground around healthy outcomes for youth
and provides a resource to health advisory
committees, community leaders and poli-
cy makers on issues which promote
healthy behaviors around relationship
skills, abstinence and marriage prepara-
tion education.
WAIT is a %wonderful %way to help the
youth of Madison County realize that cer-
tain things in their life are worth the wait.

Three Local Men join The


Madison Masonic Lodge


Madison Native Attends Groundbreaking Ceremony For The
Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial on the Washington Mall


Charlie A. Jackson, a 1983
graduate of Madison County
High School, and a 1985 grad-
uate of North Florida Commu-
nity (then "Junior") College,
recently attended the historic
Groundbreaking Ceremony for
The Martin Luther King, Jr.
Memorial on the National Mall
in Washington, D.C. Novem-
ber 12th thru November 14th.
Charlie, the son of Carris
(Lady) Jackson of Madison,'
and Bobby James of
Greenville, is the Florida Fed-
eration of Alpha Chapters Dis-
trict Chair for the MLK
Memorial Project, and n6ow re-
sides in Orlando. He attended
last Sunday's Welcome Recep-
tion, which featured NBA Leg-
ends Bob Lanier, Bill Russell,
and Bill Walton and the Na-
tional winners of the "Kids for
King" essay writing contest.
Monday morning's historic
Groundbreaking Ceremony,
hosted by Tavis Smiley and
CNN's Soledad O'Brien, fea-
tured speeches/remarks by
Presidents Bush and Former
President Clinton (who signed
the legislation authorizing the
MLK Memorial in 1998), Sen-
ator Barack Obama, Oprah
Winfrey, Yolanda, Martin mI,
and Rev. Bernice King, Maya
Angelou, Diane Sawyer, and
was attended by many digni-
taries and celebrities. The
event was telecast live by C-
Span. Monday night's Din-
ner/Gala was the crowning
culmination; it featured perfor-
mances by Michael Bolton,
BeBe Winans, Brian McK-
night, and Gladys Knight; it
was hosted by Nick Cannon of
"Drumline" and MTV's "Wild
N' Out". Speeches by Rep. Di-
ane Watson, Rep. Nancy
Pelosi, incoming and first fe-
male Speaker of the House of
Representatives, Rep. Shelia
Jackson-Lee, Lawrence Fish-
burne, and Kerry Washington,
among others, were provided.
The MLK Memorial will
be constructed on a four-acre
plot situated on the Tidal Basin
across from the Jefferson
Memorial and North of the
President Theodore Roosevelt
Memorial. The MLK Memori-
al will be the first memorial on
the National Mall to commem-
orate an African-American in-
dividual. The approved site
creates a visual 'line of leader-
ship' from the Lincoln Memo-
rial, where King gave his fa-
mous "I have a dream" speech,
to the Jefferson Memorial.
The Washington, D.C.
based Martin Luther King Jr.
National Memorial Founda-
tion is a project of the Alpha
Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., of
which Dr. King was a mem-


n1ii1ri IA M. jacKsna U
ber. In 1998, the fraternity was
authorized by the U.S. Con-
gress to establish a foundation
to manage the fund-raising f
and design of a memorial. For-
mer Atlanta Mayor -and U.S.
Ambassador Andrew Young
and Gary Cowger, President
and CEO of General Motors,
co-chair the fund-raising ef-
fort.


"The Groundbreaking ac-
tivities were a tremendous ex-
perience." said Charlie. "The
significance of being there to
witness the 'turning of the
dirt' for this historic monu-
ment has a lot of personal
meaning to me and many oth-
ers around the World. Dr. King
was a true American hero; this
insures future generations the
opportunity to gain from his
positive contributions to
mankind."
Charlie is a 1986 initiate
of The Alpha Phi Alpha Fra-
ternity, Inc. at the Iota Delta
Chapter at The Florida State
University. He graduated
from FSU in 1987 with a
Bachelor of Science degree in
Management Information Sys-
tems (Computer Science mi-
nor). He is currently em-
ployed with Sterling Com-
merce, Inc. as a Professional
Services Lead Consultant.
Fraternally, he currently also
serves as the Associate Editor-

U.S. Teen Pregnancy, Birth And Abortion Rates Highest in World


By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
In the United States, the
teen pregnancy rate is more
than nine times higher than
that of the Netherlands, nearly
four times higher that the rate
in France, and nearly five
times higher than the rate in
Germany. That leaves the
United States with the highest
teen pregnancy rate in the
world.
In the United States, the
teen birth rate is nearly 11
times higher than that of the
Netherlands, nearly five times
higher than the rate in France,
and nearly four times higher
than that in Germany.
In the United States, the
teen abortion rate is nearly
seven times higher than that in
the Netherlands, nearly three
times higher than the rate in
France and. nearly eight times
higher than the rate in Ger-
many.
One out of seven Ameri-


can teenage girls, ages 15 to
19 gave birth in 2005. That
statistic is twice higher than
any other nation. Adolescents
account for about one in 10
births worldwide and a high
proportion are not planned or
wanted. There are nearly 1.1
billion people ages 10 to 19,
that make up the largest gener-
ation of youth in history.
Educational institutions
have been encouraging
women to postpone childbear-
ing and marriage. So, what is
Madison doing to help battle
.the epidemic of high teen
pregnancy, birth and abortion
rates?
To help cutdown teen
pregnancy rates the Madison
County Health Department of-
fers Madison County students
an abstinence only education
program. This program is co-
ordinated by Madison County
Health Department's Absti-
nence Education Coordinator
Amy Ellison and Abstinence

Depending on your age,
activity preferences, budget
and health, some aerobic ex-

Stationary bikes: They

can use a stationary bike.

chair like seating, with .your


legs and feet out in front of
you. A recumbent might be a
better choice if you have low-
back pain, neck problems or
concerns about balance. Some
models are dual action -- the
handlebars move to provide
an upper-body workout.
Elliptical trainers:
These combine stair-stepping
motion and cross-country ski
motion to produce a low-im-
pact cardio% ascular workout.
The result is less stress on
joints than walking produces.

"The program helps female

It keeps students involved in

They are really great girls who

New choice: Another
newer option is a recumbent
cross-training machine that
allows for a simultaneous up-

workout without stressing
your joints. Although more
costly than, other standard
workout machines, this versa-

people who otherwise might
not be able to exercise using
both arms and both legs.

use it. Regular exercise not
only can improve your overall
quality of life, it also can help
counter many.negative effects

On Monday, November
20, Tom McGough of the
Alzheimer's Resource Center
of Tallahassee visited with
Greenville elders at the
Greenville Senior Citizens
Center to give an informative
presentation on the
Alzheimer's disease, demen-
tia and the significance of
memory screenings.
McGough spoke about
certain techniques that will
compensate for memory
problems such as following a
routine, organizing a home
environment, using written
instruction, using calendars,
daily planners or other mem-
ory books, using labels, mak-
ing lists, using notepads, car-
rying maps and directions,
using input control strategies,
using audits, using visuals.
In addition, he informed
seniors about the 12 warning
signs of dementia. The warn-
ing signs include trouble with
new memories; relying on
memory helpers; trouble
finding words; struggling to
complete familiar actions;
confusion about time, place
or people; misplacing famil-
iar items; onset of new de-
pression or irritability; mak-
ing bad decisions, personality
changes; loss of interest in
important responsibilities;
seeing or hearing things and
expressing false beliefs.
Additionally, McGough
spoke about the importance
of memory screenings. Mem-
ory screenings are the first
step toward finding out if a
person has the Alzheimer's
disease or a related dementia,
or another type of condition


that is causing memory loss.
Early diagnosis can im-
prove quality of life. Individ-
uals can learn more about the
disease, get counseling and
other social services' support,
address legal and financial is-


sues and have more say about
their health care.
For further information,
please contact Tom Mc-
Gough at : the Alzheimer's
Resource Center at (850)

By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Many people, including
Madison residents want to show
their holiday spirit by donating
generously to worthwhile chari-
ties, but donors need to be cau-
tious and protect themselves
against potential fraud.
Residents can avoid becom-
ing a victim of fraud by being
careful how they give and what
they give.


People should not give in to
pressure to donate on the spot
People need to know enough
about the soliciting charity to be
assured that they are giving wise-
ly. Take the time to become in-
formed about the charity, its pro-
grams and how it spends its funds.
Be proactive. Rather than re-
sponding only to the charities that
are worried about reaching some-
one, identify the causes that you
care about and then gather infor-
mation about organizations work-
ing on that issue.
Learn more about an organi-
zation, its activities and its
fundraising practices. Call an or-
ganization and ask for a packet of
information. Better yet, save them
the postage and visit the charity's
web site in order find out more
about what it accomplishes and
how your donation will be used.
Beware of "sound-alike"
names. Don't be fooled by names
that sound impressive or that
closely resemble the name of a fa-
miliar organization. For example,
the Attorney General's office has
received numerous complaints
about phony organizations using
law enforcement names in their ti-
tles.
Don't give cash. If you are
approached at the door or while
you are out and about shopping,
and you know the group is legiti-
mate, write a check and make it
out to the organization. Don't
make the check out to the person
or firm asking for the donation.
Some well-known charities do
solicit cash during the holidays.
Dropping change in a bucket is
okay, if you are sure you know
the charity and that it has sanc-
tioned the solicitation.
Avoid email solicitations.


Spammers are getting better
every day at creating phony solic-
itations that look real. Many of
them will lead victims to a web
site that looks like a legitimate or-
ganization, but is really a false
front for an illegal scam.
People need to be wary
about using a credit card. Many
respectable organizations offer
credit card transactions because it
helps keep their fundraising costs
down. In order to protect person-
al financial information, if de-
sired to donate via credit card,
'call the organization directly to
make the transaction and ask the
organization not to store the cred-
it card number.
Always ask solicitors how a
donation will be spent. Com-
mercial fundraisers, such as tele-
marketers, are required to tell you
if they are being paid and whether
they are registered with the Attor-
ney General's Office. Ask how
much of your donation will be re-
tained by the fundraiser and how
much will be received by the
charity. State law requires com-
mercial fundraisers to provide
that information if asked. Com-
mercial fundraisers also are re-
quired to file reports detailing
how much of the donations are
returned to the charities for which
they are solicited. Reports can be
found at the Attorney General's
web site.
Never accept an offer to send
a messenger to your home to pick
up your contribution.
It is an outstanding thing to
be a part of, donating to charity,
but donors must be safe about
giving to particular solicitors.
These rules will help keep the
Holidays bright for your own
well being and someone else's.

fessional development for
teachers.
Additionally, she is a

ance Counselor. She is in
charge of all Florida Compre-
hensive Achievement Test

sity (FAMU) and a Masters

the guidance counselor at the
primary school. Plus, my sis-
ter, Paula Ginn is the assistant
principal at the central

ucation is how my family is, I

of these positions at Pinetta,
Kendrick taught for two years
as a K-1 and K-2 Science arid
Social Studies instructor, and
left to teach fourth and fifth
grades at Madison County

years. Then, she returned to

Have you ever heard of a
cadaver? Have you eer seen
one? It is an actual dead body
that is studied for scientific
purposes. Well, if you ask the
members in the SSTRIDE
program, they could tell you
all about cadavers.
The MCCS seventh grade
SSTRIDE students went on a
field trip to the MOSI muse-
um in Tampa. They %\ ent \ ith
other SSTRIDE students from
Leon County and Gadsen
County on Friday. September
1. They went to see cadavers,
actual dead bodies that are
studied. The bodies had all
the systems still in them. just
not the skin or the "integu-
mentary system."
There were different ex-
hibits with each of the sys-
tems of the body. They had
the endocrine system, which
are the hormones, and the
cardiovascular system, which
are the heart and the vessels.
They had all the other sys-
tems, too, like to respiratory.


reproductive, urinary, skele-
tal, digestion, and integumen-
tary. Deondra Lee, a seventh
grade SSTRIDE student said.
"You'll never see anything
like it."
Even though SSTRIDE
members liked the body ex-
hibit. some disliked some
parts. Felicia Hudson, a sev-
enth grader. said. "The bodies
were kind of gross." Ryan
Kornegay, a seventh grader,
added, "It was a little stinky
in there, but there wasn't any-
thing bad. though." However,
Kayla Pippin, a seventh grad-
er. had a different opinion. "It
was an exciting learning ex-
perience," she said.
What exactly does
SSTRIDE mean? Mrs. Don-
na Odom. the SSTRIDE
teacher, said that it means
"'Science, Students, Instruc-
tional Diversity, and Excel-
lence."
Seventh grade MCCS
SSTRIDE students include:
Jonathon Cooks, Ashley Du-
ran, Will Hagan, Kayla Pip-
pin, Felicia Hudson, Kristi
Ferrell, Deondra Lee, Ryan
Kornegay, Dillon Rykard,
Dylan Hammock, Judith

Mrs. Jennifer Copeland's second grade class at Madison

poster. When the class reached their goal, they contacted
Scholastic Book Clubs. Now, with other charity partners,
Scholastic will donate 100 BOOKS to kids in need! Way to go

Imagine if you can break
down the barrier between your
classes so what you learn in
one class transitions into all
other classes. Learning Com-
munities link together classes
to make them relevant with
each other.
Instructors
for Learning
Communities rlO l
get together and
decide a com-
mon goal for
their classes.
When taking
these linked "
courses, all three instructors
are present during all three of
the periods. There are no barri-
ers between the courses. It's
set up to .give the student a
sense of community within
their class.
In these classes, one as-
signment can be given to cov-
er all three basis, such as writ-
ing a history paper, and giving


a presentation in power point.
Here, the three courses that
would be covered are History,
English, and Computers.
In these classes, the tutor-
ial of the classes is dictated on
what is needed. One subject
can be focused on more that
S-0 ..another, the in-
structors can go
back and forth
id a through subjects,
and if necessary,
they could stick
to just one of the
courses through-
out the class.
The Learning
Community courses are of-
fered in your spring course
schedule under Learning
Communities. The ones listed
for next semester are: English
I, Introduction to Computers,
Introduction to Information
Skills or Developmental Writ-
ing Skills, Developmental
Reading Skills, and Library
Skills.

The Student Advocate/Om-
budsman's office at NTCC is set
up to help students out who
have a problem with. teachers,
issues concerning diversity, and
problems with parking.
The office is student-dri-
ven. They won't take any ac-
tions without the students' con-
sent. The process is completely
confidential. There are no
records taken of the students
and the students don't even have
to give their name. However,
there are records kept of the
amount of reports that are writ-
ten against teachers and admin-
istrative offices.
The Ombudsman takes a
look at the situation and tries to
find the- best way to solve the
problem. Student Advocates can
work with students so they
know the right questions to ask.
The Ombudsman can set
up meetings with their teacher,
and they can go with them for
help and support.

SCHOOL & EDUCATION


NFCC Adult Ed Students Take Local Youngsters


In Search Of "Where The Wild Things Are"


NFCC Adult Education
students took their, show on
the road Nov. 15, visiting both
Wee Folks and Bright Days
daycare centers to perform
oral interpretations of the chil-
dren's classic, "Where the
Wild Things Are," by Maurice'
Sendak. The project encour-
aged adult education students
to sharpen their performance
skills through team work.
After practicing diligently
for months to coordinate and


perfect their reading skills,
NFCC adult ed students were
ready to become the "Wild
Things" through a series of in-
tricate details, expressions and
movements.
Shakendria Alexander and
Wanda McCrae choreo-
graphed the rumpus steps and
sounds that were made by the
"wild things" throughout the
story. In the end it was the col-
laborative effort and creative
suggestions from all students


that brought this children's
classic to life before local
youngsters.
"The highlight of the
reading came when the chil-
dren were invited to do the
rumpus with the student per-


formers" said NFCC Adult
Education teacher Kathleen
Andersen. "The children were
not shy and joined the students
in a rumpus march and cho-
rus."
The students received en-


thusiastic thanks from the day-
care employees and a round of
applause from the children.
"After NFCC students had
left, the children had a wild-
rumpusing afternoon," said
Wendy Blanton at Bright


Days. "A great time was had
by all."
For more information
about NFCC's Adult Educa-
tion Program contact Kathleen
Andersen at 850.973.1615 or

NFCC Offers Medicare D Workshop December 16th

Free Help Available To Complete Forms


There's help for Medicare beneficiaries who want assistance
in filling out paperwork to enroll in the prescription drug plan.
NFCC is offering a free workshop Saturday, Dec. 16th at the
Madison campus. NFCC Allied Health nursing students and Dr.
Phillip Mantzanas, coordinator of the Education Prep Institute,
will be on hand from 10 until 2 p.m. in the Business Education
Building (#7). The session is slated for a Saturday, so parking
should not be a problem for campus visitors.
"There are still a significant number of senior citizens and
others who are on Medicare and who, as of last year, did not se-
lect a plan. Also, there are individuals who have plans with
which they are dissatisfied," said Mantzanas. He advises, "A cru-
cial part of deciding which drug plan to choose .involves know-
ing which of prescription drugs (and dosages) are covered by the
different available plans. The only efficient way to do this is to
compare the plans via the Internet." Nursing students will make


this information available through the Internet during the Dec. 16
session.
As of Nov. 15, Medicare beneficiaries who have not signed
up for the prescription plan may enroll through Dec. 31st. For
those new to Medicare, there are seven months to enroll in a drug
plan. Currently enrolled beneficiaries can change plans if there
is one which better meets their drug needs.
Medicare's prescription drug plans are available for anyone
with Medicare, regardless of income or age. There are many dif-
ferent drug plans available in Florida. These drug plans are ap-
proved by Medicare, but administered by private companies.
Medicare beneficiaries, are invited to the Dec. 16 session for
free information and assistance and reminded to bring current
medications or a list with dosage(s).
For further information, contact Dr. Mantzanas by tele-
phone: 850-973-9493 or email MantzanasT@nfcc.edu.

By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
No one in Madison County
wanted to see private school

make Madison football fans
happy, taking Bolles into triple

the Clewiston quarterback,
forcing four interceptions. But

JV Cowboy Basketball Looks Strong For 2006


By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison JV bas-
ketball program looks
strong this year. Off to a 2-
1 season start and with big
wins over Carter Par-
ramore and Chiles, JV
Coach Elias Paulk says he
has hopes for a great sea-
son.
Recently, four new
members were added to the
squad fresh from the Cow-
boy football team. Kasmon
English, Chad Mitchell,


Corey Moore and Josh
Arnold will add a lot of en-
ergy and speed to the team,
according to Paulk.
"We've got some depth
and we're going to be fast,
very fast," Paulk said.
The JV Cowboys ham-
mered Carter Parramore
with a big 42-24 win. Jaco-
by Robinson led the scor-
ing in that game with 12
points. Hershey West had
eight points.
The JV Cowboys beat
Chiles JV by 19 with an-


other good win, 49-30.


Once again it was Robin-


son leading the scoring
with 13 and West with 12.
Look for the JV boys
on the court Friday night
against Wakulla in a big,
pack-the-gym night. The


JV Cowboys play first at 5
p.m., followed by the
Cowgirls and then the var-
sity Cowboys. Make a
night of it. Pack the gym.
Go Cowboys!

Look for four new faces on the

ty strong," said coach Elias
Paulk.
After the JV Cowboys, the
varsity Cowgirls hit the gym
floor. The Cowgirls are cur-
rently 1-4 for the season. Ac-
cording to coach Chris Neal,


the team is a strong 1-4, they
should be 4-1. Neal said he
doesn't think Wakulla is that
solid. Look for a good game
between the Cowgirls and the
Lady War Eagles.
The hot ticket for the
night will be the varsity Cow-
boys against the varsity War
Eagles. The Cowboys got an
infusion of strength and ath-
leticism when Tony Brown,
Robert Brown and Jacobbi
McDaniel joined the team
fresh from the football play-
offs. The Cowboys won their

Lady Warriors now 4-2 For The Season


By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Lady Warriors
played two games last week.
The first game Tuesday, No-
vember 28 against FAMU
was almost an upset. Last
year FAMU beat the Lady
Warriors by 50 points.
"I think they expected to
come in here and blow us
out," said Lady Warrior
coach Daryl Adams. "But
the girls wanted' to win and


came out to play. "The final
score was 42-41 with the
Lady Warriors losing by
only one point.
After the first quarter of
play, ACA had stunned
FAMU and was up 9-1. But
the FAMU girls had a good
second period and the Lady
Warriors did not. The score
at the half was 25-18, with
FAMU clearly in the lead.
The Lady Warriors went
ahead after the break and


were up 34-32 at, the end of
the third, making up a huge
deficit. But the final quarter
was won by FAMU, which
ended the game with the
Lady Warriors taking the
one-point loss.
Mallory Plaines led the
scoring against FAMU with
12 points, followed by Brit-
tany Hobbs with nine. Lisa
Bailey scored eight points
and Bethany Saunders
scored seven.'


Thursday, November 30,
ACA Lady Warriors took on
Munroe and cleaned house,
winning 44-36. Lindsey Day
totaled a double/double with
18 points and 11 rebounds.
Nicole Mathis scored 12
points and eight rebounds.
Plaines scored six and
snagged 11 rebounds. Bailey
had 11 rebounds. Saunders
had six assists and four
steals. Hobbs had four
steals.

FSU Loses


To


UF For


The


Third


By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The score of the FSU/UF
game was a lot closer than
most people thought it would
be. The final score 21-14 re-
flected the heart and the de-
termination of the Seminole
defense. Madison's Geno
Hayes is part of that defense.
At the half, the score was 14-
0 Gators. The game was tied
in the first moments of the
fourth quarter, after two unan-
swered touchdowns from
Seminoles that refused to give
up.
The hard-hitting FSU de-
fense took out two key Gator
players. Hayes was in on the
tackle that nailed Percy
Harvin, who was carried off
the field on a backboard.

touchdown and is one of UF's
most dynamic players. He
was said to be walking around
and in good shape by the end
of the game. DeShawn Wynn
was also injured and left the
game in the third quarter witlf
a hurt shoulder. The Seminole
defense did not go lightly into
the night.
But the scattered Nole of-
fense couldn't get the job
done. Quarterback Drew
Weatherford started and
played three series before be-
ing replaced by Xavier Lee.
Weatherford was 3 for 9 for
46 yards. Lee fared no better
going 2 for 6 and fumbling a
snap in the next three series
for eight yards gained. Weath-
erford came back in to boos
from the crowd. He got
sacked on his first play back

and then fumbled the ball out
of bounds. Coach Bobby
Bowden decided to stick with
Weatherford even after he,
threw two interceptions in the
third quarter.
Scores for the Noles
came when Joe Surratt ran the
ball in from a yard out in the
third quarter and from a cir-
cus catch made by Greg Carr
in the endzone in the first
minutes of the fourth. Carr
caught the 25-yard Weather-
ford pass over the head of UF
cornerback Reggie Lewis.
The Carr TD tied the game at
14-14.
But the Noles couldn't
hang on. Dallas Baker caught
a 25-yard pass from Chris
Leak to score the final touch-
down of the night with 10
minutes left to play.
