Former
Criminal Justice
Academy Broadens
Scope With
Name Change
President Morris G. Steen,
Jr. and Skip James, Director of
the Public Safety Academy,
welcomed law,, enforcement
and correction representatives
to North Florida Community
College for the annual Adviso-
ry Committee meeting Wed.,
Dec. 6, 2006. Through the
committee, local representa-
tives from the public safety
community regularly provide
input on training and curricu-
lum to NFCC.
Members of the council
include David Frisby, Monti-
cello Chief of Police, Rick
Davis, Madison Chief of Po-
lice, Jeffrey McGuire, Jasper
Chief of Police. Madison
County Sheriff Pete Bucher,
Hamilton Co. Sheriff's Office
Major John Davis, Nathaniel
Patterson, Jr. Assistant Warden
of Taylor Co. DOC, Col.
Robert Hart and Patty Harvey
of Mayo Correctional Institu-
tion and Doug Glisson, field
representative of the Florida
Dept. of Law Enforcement.
James explained that
changing the academy name
from Criminal Justice to Pub-
lic Safety Academy followed
the national trend to include el-
ements of public safety, law
enforcement, corrections and
security under a comprehen-
sive name. The change also
opens the door for NFCC to
pursue expanded grant oppor-
tunities.
Members discussed the
law enforcement trust fund,
upcoming advanced and spe-
cialized training and the Range
3000 target shooting simulator
system. The council also not-
ed that future academy recruits
will be required to have a
physical and pass a drug test.

Hospital Board Continues No-Bid Policy


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing. Inc.
It. was a vote that Cary
Hardee, board attorney, told
this reporter Wednesday, De-
cember 13, that didn't even
need to be taken, because the
hospital administrator had
read the contract wrong. The
contract did not have an expi-
ration date, Hardee said.


Madison County Memori-
al Hospital's Board of Direc-
tors voted 4-3 Tuesday
evening, December 12, to6
keep Clemons, Rutherford &
Associates (CRA) on as its ar-'
chitectural firm.
The three who voted
against the decision Shirley,
Joseph, Bob Smith and Oscar.
Brennan said that they felt'


that the decision should be
opened up for bids.
CRA was hired as the ar-.
chitectural firm in 2000. No
members who are presently on
the board were serving at that
time. CRA developed plans
for a 49-bed hospital to the
rune of over $400,000. The
hospital is currently looking at
constructing a 25-bed hospital


Fire Burns 32 Acres


The Lee Volunteer Fire Department, the Division of Forestry, Madison Fire & Res-
cue and the Cherry Lake Volunteer Fire Department responded to a grass fire on Mon-
day, December 18, which blazed a trail across 32 acres. It began on Corinth Church
Road. on property belonging to John and Barbara Hodges, before jumping the fence
and threatening the neighbor's property. Some pines were burned in the fire. No one
was injured in the blaze.

By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishig. Inc. o.
The Madison Volunteer
Fire Department* has been
awarding outstanding fire
fighters for their good deeds
and heroic efforts since the
1980s. Almost 30 years later,
Madison County Fire Depart-
ment's Fire Chief Alfred Mar-
tin awarded Lieutenant Lucas
Williams of Madison with the
award for "Firefighter of the ..
Year."'
Williams has been a volun-
teer for Madison Fire & Rescue
for three years and was named '

lege. He is a nationally regis- tenant Lucas Williams with the "Firefighter of the Year"
tered paramedic. award.
Williams took it upon him-
self to write a grant for Madison County Fire Department. It paid off, with the state awarding the
department with $200,000 over a two-year time span from 2004-2005. The grant purchased two
new fire trucks, nine new breathing apparatuses and other much-needed equipment to help pro-
vide the best service to Madison County and its citizens.
Williams participated in the Southeastern Firefighter Combat Challenge in 2004 and 2005.
Williams and Dan Studstill, a city firefighter, were the first Madison County firefighters ever to
compete in the challenge.
Williams stated, "I wrote the grants to help the department and to help out Madison County.
The equipment allows us to better serve Madison residents. Receiving this award is an honor and
I'm really proud to have the opportunity to serve the people of Madison."
Williams' parents are Nathan Williams, of Lee, and Tammy Williams, of Madison. His sister
is Amanda Williams, also of Madison.
Alfred Martin, Eric Powell and Brett Frakes all took part in making the decision to name
Williams "Firefighter of the year."
Congratulations to Williams on a well-deserved award.


One Injured In Rollover


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A car flipped over and in-
jured a man on Friday, De-
cember 15.
According to a Florida
Highway Patrol report, at ap-
proximately 2:25 p.m. that af-
ternoon, a 2006 Toyota, driven


by Michael J. Pembroke, 20,
of Panama City, was traveling
east on Interstate 10. As it ap-
proached the 237-mile marker,
the Toyota traveled into the
median and rotated counter-
clockwise.
The vehicle overturned
approximately two times and


came to final rest in the east-
bound lane of the interstate.
Pembroke was transport-
ed to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital by Madison County
EMS, where he was treated for
minor injuries.
FHP Trooper Jon Leohner
was the investigating officer.


and the plans would have to be
revised.
After some discussion,
Smith made a motion to open
up the architectural aspect of
construction for bids.
"I think we should be over
and above board with this," he.
said.
Smith talked about main-,
taining the public's trust, fol-


lowing the referendum where
the public voted in favor of a
new hospital.
Smith's motion died for
lack of a second.
More discussion fol-
lowed, with a discussion held
about the convenience of Billy
Rutherford and his two sons,

VIEWPOINTS & OPINIONS


Letters to the Editor are typed word for word, comma for comma,
as sent to this newspaper.

Is Anyone Else Embarrassed

To Call Them "Chain Gangs?"
Is anyone else embarrassed to put into print the description 'chain gang?' If they still have
to wear chains, I for one definitely do not want to be reminded. When I look at these young men
picking up the trash careless citizens toss from their cars, I wonder if some are there because of
foolish use of drugs they happened to get caught with. The numbers in our prisons today are ter-
rible testimony to failures at many levels in our great country. It's better not to hit us between
the eyes with tat'Hidliifi'Fclaiino longer ate used.

Article On Teen Pregnancy

Left Mistaken Impression
Letter to the Editor
A recent article on teen pregnancy by Jessalyn Covell (Madison County Carrier, 12/6/06) was
very interesting but probably left some mistaken impressions.
First, teens are not by any stretch the majority of unwed mothers. In Florida in 2005 there
were 96,766 live births to unwed mothers. Of these, 22,262 (23%) were to teen mothers. The ma-.
jority, 77%, were to older women. Those percentages mirror national averages. As an added
note, 42.8% of all live births in Florida in 2005 were to unwed mothers of all ages.
This information is available on the website at:
www.flpublichealth.com/VSBOOK/pdf/2005/Births.pdf
Also, the difference between the U.S. and other countries regarding their lower teen preg-
nancy rates comes from ongoing sex education and easy availability of various forms of birth con-
trol, not abstinence programs such as that offered by Madison County.

Will and Dan, living in Madison. It \\as pointed out that they could watch over things another firm
would not be able to.
Brennan said. "It doesn't scare me that a local firni like Billy Rutherford's could hold its own
in an open bid process. I am not opposed to using a local firm."
Brennan said he thought the board needed to have an open bid process to maintain the pub-
lic's trust.
Attorney Cary Hardee pointed out that the bid process in Florida involves the architects com-
ing in and giving a presentation on the hospitals they have built in the past.
The board would then rank them in order by number. The first candidate would be inter-
viewed and a decision would be made whether to go with the candidate or not. If the board chose
not to, the next candidate would be interviewed.
The time delay was also taken into consideraion'by the board.
Joseph, who serves as chairman of the board, presented ithe three ideas proposed that evening
with number one being to always do nothing and not take the matter into consideration that
evening; number two was to open up the process for bids and get input from different people; and
number three would be to call Rutherford and have him redo his presentation.
After more discussion, Jim Sale made a motion to go with Rutherford. Shirley Barfield sec-
onded Sale's motion.
Faye Todd voted in favor of the motion. After debating the matter, Foust also voted in favor
of the motion.

of alcohol and driving. During his probation period, he must read the essay, which has to be ap-
proved by the court, to at least 30 youth groups.

Exciting Times For All
The Christmas season is an exciting time of year for the res-
idents living in a nursing home. Most of the residents are excit-
ed and cheerful looking forward to the season's festivities.
One of the favorites of the nursing home is the decorations.
Residents eagerly gather around the boxed up items, and will ea-
gerly assist in unpacking all of the decorations. With the excite-
ment of putting up.the Christmas tree and the ornaments, resi-
dents can be found chattering, laughing, and remembering their
past holiday experiences.
Once the home is decked out with all of the holiday splen-
dor, residents eagerly look forward to the many activities that
center around the holiday. Christmas sing-a-long's are great fun
for all the residents. Different groups from the community will
drop in and the residents will flock to the music and sound of the
voices singing familiar songs of this holiday.
Of course the Christmas party is an exciting time. The din-
ing area is the place to be for a party. The holiday music is play-
ing in the background, residents are scurrying about poking
around the gifts, trying to guess what surprises the wrapped
packages might contain. Naturally, the refreshments are a big fa-
vorite. Christmas parties within the nursing home are a fun time
full of sharing ind surprises.
With all the ongoing excitement, Christmas Day is a relief
allowing the residents to relax and enjoy the miracle of the sea-
son. Christmas is a time for our residents to feel the peace and
joy of their home, for them to visit with their families, and to re-
new their spirit.
"Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night."
Santa Claus

Chattanooga
Recently, Linda and I had the opportunity to visit Chat-
tanooga, Tennessee and tour the nearby Civil War battlefields.
We were blessed with good weather which made the trip even
more memorable.
A little understood advantage that the South had in its favor
during the War Between the States was geography. Other than
the eastern seaboard which was blocked by Lee's Army of
Northern Virginia, the only way to gain access to the heart of the
Confederacy was through Tennessee. The Appalachian chain
blocked other land access for major armies to traverse. The key
to an invasion by the North was across the Tennessee River at
Chattanooga.
Blocking this route was the Confederate Army of Tennessee
under command of Braxton Bragg. The South during the War
Between the States was renowned for their generalship; Bragg
was not among this illustrious group. He lacked the boldness of
Jackson, Lee, Longstreet and Forrest. Opposing the Confeder-
ate army was William Rosecrans' Army of the Cumberland.
During the summer of 1863, Rosecrans out maneuvered Bragg
and in so doing invested Chattanooga with his Union army.
Buoyed by the addition of James Longstreet's corps, the
Confederates engaged the Union Army of the Cumberland in
mid-September 1863 along the banks of West Chickamauga
Creek in Northern Georgia. Over a two day period, 124,000
Americans from both sides .clashed in a pivotal battle. Techni-
cally it was a Southern victory but it came at such a high cost
that Bragg was shell-shocked from pursuing the retreating Fed-
erals. Nearly 35,000 casualties littered Chickamauga after two
days of fighting.
Rosecrans retreated into Chattanooga but his position was
untenable at best. When Confederates placed artillery atop
Lookout Mountain, they were in position to bombard and con-
trol resupply to the Army of the Cumberland the crooks and
bends of the great Tennessee River lay at their feet.
Rosecrans was replaced with George Thomas, the "Rock of
Chickamauga" who had prevented the rout in September. In
came western commander Ulysses S. Grant who quickly called
for reinforcements from both east and west. Elements of the
Army of Tennessee under Sherman and the Army of the Po-
tomac under Hooker arrived to strengthen Grant's command.
With their backs to the wall and food running short, Grant
first attacked the batteries which commanded the river valley
from Lookout Mountain on November 24. This assault was
conducted by Hooker's regiments. That morning, a thick cloud
of fog shrouded the mountain; from henceforth, the battle would
be known as "the battle above the clouds." Despite the advan-
tage of high terrain, Bragg's thinly defended batteries were soon
overwhelmed by Yankee infantry assaulting the peak.
The next day, the assault began on Missionary Ridge where
Bragg's army was dug in. The attacks on the left by Sherman
and on the right by Hooker quickly bogged down. Thomas'
Cumberland boys were ordered forward toward rifle pits at the
center base of the ridge late in the afternoon. When the boys
reached their objective, they kept right on going, much to the
consternation and dismay of their commanding generals. The
generals lost control, but troopers were not to be denied. Lead-
ing the unplanned assault was the 24th Wisconsin led by a 19-
year old adjutant. from Milwaukee named Arthur MacArthur.
For his audacity, courage and leadership that day, he would be
awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Seventeen years
later, he would father a son named Douglas who would rewrite
history in the next-century.
The Union victory at Chattanooga paved the way for Sher-
man's campaign into Georgia the next year. All of the great
Union generals Grant, Sherman, Thomas and Sheridanr -
were united at Chattanooga before going on to independent and
even more successful commands in 1864.
Chickamauga would become our nation's first military
park, designated in 1890. It is wonderfully preserved and
marked. Although urban sprawl has claimed Missionary Ridge
and parts of Lookout Mountain, they are still wonderful memo-
rials to the Americans who struggled there. If you have the op-
portunity to visit Chattanooga, I hope you will be blessed with

Man Arrested For DUI
A Madison man was arrested for drinking and driving on
Tuesday, December 12.
According to a Madison Police Department report, while on
patrol on SW Duval Street, Patrolman Brandon Abbott observed
Willie James Anderson, 56, walking to a gray Dodge car. Abbott
noticed that the man was stumbling.
Anderson got into the car and attempted to pull forward in
an attempt to leave the area. Abbott got out of his car and mo-
tioned for Anderson to stop.
After making contact with Anderson, Abbott noticed an
odor of alcohol coming from inside the car and from Anderson.
Abbott.also saw an open bottle of beer inside the car.
After asking Anderson if he would be willing to submit to
tests to determine if he was intoxicated, Anderson told Abbott
that he was having trouble standing and he didn't think he would
be able to take the tests.
Anderson was arrested and taken to the Madison County
Jail, where he was charged with DUI.

When Investing,
Look Past "Outlook" for 2007
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
It's time for all the financial experts to make their predic-
tions for 2007. Some will say the stock market will:keep ris-
ing over the next year, while others will claim the market will
fall. How about interest rates, inflation, oil prices and any
number of other factors? With very little effort, you can find
conflicting opinions on all these subjects. How can you base.
vour investment strategies on such an uncertain forecast' You
can't and \oul shouldn't
In faci. you'll be better off if tou stp a.skfing questions
that have no answers. No one can really tell you where the
Dow Jones Industrial Average will be in 12 months, nor the
price of a barrel of oil, nor the interest rate on a 10-year
Treasury note. Even more importantly, the specifics of the
financial markets over the next year are just about meaning-
less to you if you will be investing for another two or three
decades.
Consequently, instead of pondering what lies ahead for
the financial markets, ask yourself these questions:
Is my asset allocation suitable for y risk tolerance?
You'll need to periodically review your portfolio to make sure
your investment mix is still appropriate for your individual
needs. You don't want to take on too much risk, but, at the
same time, you don't want to invest so conservatively that
you can't attain the growth you need. And, over time, .some of
your goals may change, along with your family situation, so
you'll want to make sure your investments reflect your new
circumstances.
Do I need to upgrade the quality of my investments?
Year in and year out, through market volatility and political
turmoil, quality investments never go out of style. Take a
close look at your holdings. Do you own stocks of companies
with strong management teams and competitive products?
H,-ave your bonds received high "grades" from the independ-
ent rating agencies? In any given time period, the highest
rated investments may not offer the best returns, but, over the
long haul, they are likely to provide you with the greatest
potential for rewards.
Can I reduce my investment expenses and taxes? Most
people don't realize just how much expenses and taxes can
eat into investment returns. By buying -quality investments,
and holding them for the long term, you can help reduce
transaction costs. And you can gain greater control of your
tax situation by focusing on tax-advantaged vehicles, such as
your 401(k), Roth or traditional IRA, fixed annuities and
some types of municipal bonds.
Do I own investments that can offer the potential for
both reliable and rising income during retirement? This
question is especially applicable if you are closing in on
retirement. To supplement your Social Security and the dis-
tributions from your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored
retirement plan, you will need to count on income from your
investment portfolio. To maintain a steady source of income
that can also keep you ahead of inflation, you may want to
explore a mixture of fixed-income vehicles and dividend-
paying stocks. Keep in mind, though, that dividends can be
increased, decreased or totally eliminated at any point with-
out notice.

You can't predict shifting political winds, geopolitical
unrest, new tax legislation and the fortunes of specific indus-
tries. But by following the steps outlined above, you can quit
looking for a crystal ball because you won't need it.

By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Major Mark Trammell of
the Florida Highway Patrol is
also a Captain in the U.S.
Coast Guard.
Local FHP Lt. Dan Camp-
bell invited Trammell to speak
at the Madison Rotary Club,
December 13, about homeland
security and the Coast Guard.
Trammell spoke about the new
duties of the modem Coast
Guard in. relation to upgrading
homeland security issues.
He said new Coast Guard
duties include homeland secu-
rity, maritime domain. aware-
ness, Increasing Intelligence
sharing, port contingency plan-
ning and response coordina-
tion.
Members of Rotary lis-


tened raptly as Trammell out-
lined these new duties. Tram-
mell named possible terrorist
targets the Coast Guard feels
are part of their responsibili-
ties. He listed petro-chemical.
plants as the number-one target
along with large ships.
With a very interesting
Powerpoint presentation,
Trammell listed the U.S. ports
that do the most business by
tons of cargo handled each
year.
It surprised the Rotarians
when he listed the Port of
South Louisiana as the busiest
port in the nation. Houston was
number-two and Huntington,
West Virginia was a surprise
number-seven.
New York was listed at
number-three. Tampa was on

Trammell told the assem-
bled Rotary members where
the Coast Guard is concentrat-
ing their efforts. He listed high
interest vessels, high density
population areas, chemical in-
dustries, petroleum and natural
gas industries, offshore pro-
duction assets, passenger ves-
sels, strategic ports of em-
barkation and locks, levees,
old river control structures and
choke points.
He said citizens could help
out the Coast Guard by report-
ing any suspicious activity
close to these areas and recom-
mended citizens watch for un-
familiar people taking photos
especially around bridges and
overpasses.

own security, as do many of
the offshore drilling compa-
nies. Offshore oil has 6,500 oil
and gas wells in American wa-
ters, 3,800 platforms, 172 mo-
bile offshore drilling units, 340
million barrels of crude oil
produced and 4.7 trillion cubic
feet of natural gas.
Trammell is a. member of
the Eighth Coast Guard Dis-
trict. They police much of the
offshore unloading spots for
oil in the waters off Houston
and Louisiana. Other districts
have different missions.
For example, the First
District is in Maine and is
mostly concerned with fishing,
while the Seventh District off
the coast of South Florida and
the Bahamas has a huge fleet
dedicated to drug interdiction.
Trammell was a good
speaker with an interesting
message for the members of
Rotary.
There were three guests at
the Wednesday, December 13
meeting: Larry Peterson, Jim
Reiboldt and Ashley Beggs.
Carl Dean thanked all

Uaughters Of The

American Levclution

1ld Fall Ieetinas
The Madison San Pedro Chapter Daughters of the American
Revolution (DAR) has completed their fall meetings.

On September 12, 2006, the Chapter celebrated the 22nd
year of its founding at the home of this year's treasurer/registrar,
Princess Akerman. Special guest was the current State Regent,
Rebecca Lockhart, of Jacksonville. She held a very informative
question and answer session, which was beneficial to the chapter
members. She also presented certificates of appreciation to Mary
Harper, who was retiring as secretary, and to Ginny Bums who is
retiring as treasurer/registrar. Another guest was Jane Comer.
The refreshment table held a "22nd Year" cake and an as-
sortment of finger foods.
On October 15. Sandra Reeves was host to the Chapter. Joe
Boyles gave the program, presenting a story of a young Alabama
girl during the World War H era. She had written letters to a mem-
ber of Joe's family at that time, and now he has edited the letters
and is ready to tell her story. It was a poignant story filled with a
young Southern girl's expressions of hope, caring and dreams of
the future. Unfortunately, an untimely drowning prevented her
from fulfilling those dreams. Chapter members were very much
moved by the presentation and about a time in history that some
of them could remember.
The refreshment table held an array of finger foods and
punch in a fall color theme.
Monday, December 4 was chosen by the Chapter to make the
annual trip to the Veteran's Hospital in Lake City to deliver
Christmas gifts from the Chapter members. Taking the gifts over
this year were Sara Adams, Chapter Regent and Sandra Reeves,
Secretary/National Defense. Tracy Reeves was the obliging dri-
ver.
If you are interested in joining DAR, please call (850) 929-
2326 or (850) 973-2617.

Beware Of High Blood Pressure


By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Nearly one in three American adults have
high blood pressure. Once high blood pres-
sure develops, it usually lasts a lifetime. .
The good news is that it can be ,
treated and controlled.
The majority of the time, laugh
blood pressure has no symptoms that oc-
cur and some people may not find
out they have it until its too late.
People may be living with high
blood pressure for years and may
not know it. Uncontrolled high
blood pressure can lead to
strokes, heart attacks, heart fail-
ure or kidney failure.
People can take steps to pre-
vent high blood pressure by -.
adopting a healthy lifestyle.
These steps include maintaining a
healthy weight, being physically
active, following a healthy eating
plan that emphasizes fruits, veg-
etables and lowfat dairy foods,
choosing and preparing foods
with less salt and sodium, quitting smoking and
not drinking alcoholic beverages. If a person
does drink, they should drink in moderation.
People can take certain precautions to keep
blood pressure under control. The majority of
citizen's goals are to keep blood pressure below
140/90 and lower for people with other condi-


tions, such as diabetes and kidney disease.
In addition, three out of four women with
high blood pressure know they have it. Yetfew-
er than one in three are controlling their blood
pressure. Every woman should take steps to
control their blood pressure.


By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
In 2002, Madison County
had two reported cases of Hu-
man Immmunodeficiency
Virus (HIV) and one reported
case of Acquired Immune De-
ficienLT) SN ndrome (AIDS).
In 2002, for the state of,
Florida there was 6,"122 report-
ed cases of HIV and 5,058 re-
ported cases of AIDS.
Throughout the AIDS epi-
demic, Florida has consistently
ranked third in the nation in
the number of reported cases
for HIV and AIDS.
The Florida Department
of Health estimates that
100,000 Floridians (11% of the
national total) are living with
HIV infection. Males account
for 76% and females account
for 24% of cumulative report-
ed AIDS cases.
Of the over 78,000 cumu-
lative HIV cases in Florida,
55% are among African Amer-
icans, 28% are among Cau-
casians, and 17% are among
Hispanics. HIV/AIDS is the
leading cause of death in Flori-
da for both black males and
black females.
Becoming infected with
HIV and becoming sick from
AIDS are two different events.
For most people, it takes
many years from the time
someone is infected with HIV
to the time that they develop
symptoms of AIDS. Some
people get sick sooner and oth-
ers stay well longer, especially
with treatment. However, there
is almost always a significant


period of time after infection
when an HIV-positive individ-
ual will have no symptoms at
all, often 10 years or-more.
The first time period is
during the first few weeks af-
ter infection from HIV. Some
people wh;i.jnely\ infected
may develop flu-like symp-
toms within the first month or
so after getting HIV. These
early symptoms can feel very
much like the flu with symp-
toms such as fever, headache,
weakness, fatigue, body aches
and they can be mild or se-
vere. The flu-like symptoms
typically last for only about
week, and then go away on
their own. Although, people
do need to keep in mind that
not everyone who is infected
with HIV will experience
these early, flu-like symptoms
of Acute Viral Syndrome.
Many people will have no
symptoms at all until years af-
ter infection.
The other time when
someone may have symptoms
related to HIV is much later in
their illness, once their body's
immune system has been dam-
aged by the virus and they are
starting to become sick with
AIDS. AIDS is a disorder of
the immune system, it makes
people sick by making their
bodies vulnerable to a wide
variety of illnesses.
The Madison County Cor-
rectional Institute reported
that they are not equipped to
hold HIV/AIDS inmates and
those inmates are immediately
sent to Lake Butler to be


housed there. They currently
have not taken in any inmates
who have HIV/AIDS.
The Madison County Jail
reported that a of December
6, they had released their only
HIV or AIDS inmate. They are
not quite as equipped to house
severe cases of HIV/AIDS,
but do their best to provide
particular inmates with accu-

I am a registered respira-
tory therapist with thirty-five
(35) plus years in respiratory
therapy. The vast majority of
those years I worked as a trit-
ical care therapist, which in-
cludes: ICU, CCU, NICU, and
cardiac ICU where I managed
ventilators for open-heart pa-
Lients (CABG). After each of
those accomplishments,. I de-
veloped a sudden interest in
sleep studies where the Eden
Tech was used as a four (4)
channel sleep study for sleep
screens. In 1994, I joined the
Association for Polysomno-
graphic Technologists. In
2001, another local respiratory
therapist and myself were sent
to the Houston Sleep Center
where we were taught classes
in performing sleep studies.
Sleep technology has
been instrumental in the diag-
nosis of the sleep ,disorder,
sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a
condition characterized by
brief interruptions of breath-
ing during sleep. There are
two types of sleep apnea: cen-.
tral and obstructive. Obstruc-


rate care unless the case is too
severe.
HIV/AIDS is a reality and
has spread to almost every-
where in the state, even Madi-
son County. Please remember
to practice good health.
For further information,
please contact the Florida
HIV/AIDS Hotline at 1-800-
FLA-AIDS.


tive sleep apnea, in which the
airway closes off and the per-
son wakes up, gasping, is the
more common type. Central
sleep apnea is a much less
common condition in which
the brain doesn't send the ap-
propriate signals to the mus-
cles involved in breathing.
Central sleep apnea may stem
from a brain injury, congestive
heart failure, or other health
problems.
More than 12 million
Americans are estimated to


have obstructive sleep apnea
(OSA). When people with
sleep apnea don't get a restful
sleep at night, they may be ex-
cessively sleepy during the
day,,which can lead to trouble
at school, work, and even auto
accidents. We have a beautiful
two (2) bed sleep facility that
the public is invited to tour.
Tests performed at Duramed
Sleep laboratory are: Regular
Sleep Studies and/or Sleep
Studies with CPAP (continu-
ous positive airway pressure)
Titration. Our sleep study
turnaround time is 3-4 days.
We have a registered sleep
technician with two (2) years
experience on staff. Sleep in-
terpretation is performed by
Dr. Namen who is board certi-
fied in sleep medicine. Please
feel free to tour our sleep fa-
cility.

Gracious Or Greedy


By Susan Pickles
Madison Academy
3rd Grade Teacher
Oh, how I love
the holiday season!
We have finished
Thanksgiving and
are now fully into
the Christmas sea-
son. We all look for-
ward to the lights,
excitement, and hol-
iday festivities, but
let us continue to re-
member the true
meanings of these
days.


Susan Pickles
is the 3rd Grade
teacher at Madison


Academy
two holi-


The celebrating will end
later in December, but the true
feelings and purposes should
continue throughout the year.
Thanksgiving was not meant to
only be celebrated on one day,
but every day. (Ephesians 5:20
- Giving thanks always for all
things unto God and the Father
in the name of our Lord Jesus
Christ.)
The Spirit of Christmas -
giving should not just show
forth on one day. In the rush,
rush, rush of our lives today,
and the gain, gain, gain for
which so many are striving, 1
fear we are teaching our chil-
dren improper values.
I pray that we as adults are


teaching our chil-
dren to be gracious
and thankful,
rather than greedy
and selfish. Some-
times children are
not thankful for
what they have
and only want
more. Many don't
want to work to
earn anything and
it is a strange con-
cept to simply be
kind to someone.


They do not realize how
much God has blessed them by
allowing them to live in Madi-
son County in such a great na-
tion as America. A nice home
and a family that loves and
cares for them are often taken
for granted.
Let each of us set the ex-
ample for our children by being
gracious and thankful to the
Lord "who daily loadeth us
with benefits." Being thankful
for all we already have, saying
a kind word or helping those
around us, and accepting the
blessings that come our way
graciously, are all things each
of us can do in our daily lives to
keep the true meanings of the
holiday season alive all year
long.

Madison Soccer Takes Important District Win


By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Cowgirl soccer delivered
an important win against the
Hamilton Lady Trojans at
home Tuesday night, Decem-
ber 12. Madison beat Hamil-
ton 3-2 at their place in the


season opener.
"The girls knew this was
going to be a tight game but
that they had a chance to win
again," Coach Donn Smith
said.
But things looked bleak
when the Lady Trojans


scored in the eighth minute
of the first half. Two of the
Cowgirls' key players were
on the bench with injuries for
most of the game, and it took
until the 29th minute for
Madison to draw even again.
At the half, the score was


still 1-1,.
In the second half, the
Cowgirls took 16. shots-on-
goal to Hamilton's one, but
the ball simply would not
bounce the right way. The
Cowgirls hit the posts so
many times, and so hard, that


one of the goal posts had to
be reset the day after the
game. Finally, Madison man-
aged to get one in on a fast
break down the middle in the
27th minute. The final score
was 2-1.
Emily Hentges scored


the first goal and Allyce
Rutherford scored goal num-
ber-two.
Ashley Collis had one
save as goalkeeper.
The win puts the Cow-
girls at 4-7-1 for the season
and 2-4 in district play.

By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madison Cowboy defen-
sive coordinator Rod Williams
is leading a double life. We
know him as Rod Williams,
teacher at the Madison County
Alternative Excel School and
defensive coordinator for the
Cowboys, but when high school
football season is over, Williams
begins to prepare for his real job
as center for the Tampa Bay
Storm.
.A few weeks after the Cow-
boys put away their pads,
Williams begins his cardio
workouts. He lifts weights twice
a week during the season. Work-
ing out is a major part of his job
as a professional football player.
The Tampa Bay Storm is
part of the 19-team Arena Foot-
ball League. Their season starts
March 2 and runs until the final
playoff game, which will be
July 29 this year. Williams said
arena football is managed and
s governed by the same laws as
the NFL. There are the same
salary caps; they trade players
and players move on and off
teams through free agency just
like the NFL. Arena football is
divided nationally into two con-
ferences, the American Confer-
ence and the National Confer-
ence and there are two divisions
in each conference.
The Storm is in the Nation-
al Conference, Southern Divi-
sion. At the end of the season,
there are division playoffs for
the division championship, fol-
lowed by conference playoffs
and then the national champi-
onship game. The Storm has
won five national champi-
onships, the last one in 2003
1 i(h Coach Rod playing center.
Williams said the main dif-
ference between arena football
and regular football is the size of
the field. Arena ball uses a 50-
yard playing field, and arena
ball is played indoors. Because
of the shortened playing field,
Williams says the game is really
fast paced. "One, two, three, the
ball is gone," Williams said.
s "The ball is passed 80-85 per-
o cent of the time." There are only
eight players from each team on
the field, instead of the NFL's
I 11.
According to Williams, be-
cause of the shortened field, the
scores in arena football can get
really high. Williams said out
west the scores get into the 70s
and 80s. "We play defense in the
south," Williams added. "Our
scores get into the 30s and every
now and then the 40s."
The field is an indoor
padded surface 85 feet wide and
50 yards long with eight-yard
endzones. Goal posts are nine-
feet wide with a crossbar height
of 15 feet (NFL goalposts are 18
1/2 wide with the crossbar at 10
feet). The goalside rebound nets
are 30 feet wide by 32 feet high.
The bottom of the nets is eight
feet above the ground. Sideline
barriers are 48 inches high and
made of high-density foam rub-
ber.
Williams did not leave col-
lege with the intentions of play-
ing arena football. He graduated
from Madison County High
School in 1991.


Cowboys' Defensive Coordinator Rod Williams was #95 during his FAMU years.


(Photo submitted)
When he was a Cowboy, Bud
O'Hara was head qoach and the
Cowboys went 6-4 his sopho-
more and junior years and 5-4
his senior year.
Williams said he played
everything. "I started the year
as quarterback," Williams said.
''Every one of our fullbacks got
injured, and by the third game I
was playing fullback. I never
came off the field except for
kick-off returns."
Williams went to FAMU
after high school and played de-
fensive end as a Rattler for his
freshman and sophomore sea-
sons. As a junior, he switched to
defensive tackle.
Right after college,
Williams signed a free agent
deal with the Dolphins, but was
released. He went back to
school to graduate with a de-
gree in criminal justice. While
he was waiting for the results of
an application to join the U.S.
Marshals, he got a call from
Pinetta Junior High principal
Randall Buchanan.
Buchanan invited Williams
to teach at his school. "I had no
aspirations of teaching or
coaching," Williams said. "But
I let him talk me into doing both
and I got hooked."
While he was teaching at
Pinetta Middle, he got an invita-
tion to try out for a number of
arena football teams. The Storm
called. "I figured, hey, might as
well try it out," Williams said.,
"I love it."
Williams said there is noth-
ing like the camaraderie you
build with your friends and
teammates.
Last season Williams was
injured. He ruptured an Achilles
tendon and is still rehabbing
from the injury. "Right now I'm
at 75 percent," Williams said.
"There's still two months until
the season starts. The rehab is


coming along good,"
Players on the Cowboys
football team get a kick out of
watching Coach Rod play.
Williams said there is an
arena football video game out
for Playstation and X-Box, and
the Cowboys love to play it.
"It's funny listening to them
play the game," Williams said.
"They'll say, wow, Coach Rod
is really fast."
Williams was fast when he
got out of college. He's 6'4",
and weighed 275 pounds com-
ing out of school. At that time
he said he ran the 40 in 4.7, and
when he tried out for the Storm
he ran it in 4.8.
The position of center is
really important in arena foot-
ball according to Williams, be-
cause of the shortened field
and speed of play. "In arena
football, the center's impor-
tance is magnified," Williams
said.
Williams expects this
year's Storm to be good.
"From what I can tell, Coach


Marcum has put together a
pretty good team," he said. He
added some big-time players
have been added to this year's
roster. The Storm averages
among the highest attendance
in arena football. They play in
the St. Pete Times Forum. If
you'd like to get more infor-
mation on the Tampa Bay
Storm check out their website
at tampabaystorm.com. If
you'd like to learn more about
arena football go to arenafoot-
ball.com.
This could be Williams'
last year in arena football. He
said he's thinking of retiring.
He's been a member of the
Storm for nine years. He said
the linemen are the longest-
lived players in arena football.
"Linebackers and fullbacks
don't last long," Williams said.
Williams is married' to,
ne Ily elected Madison Coun-
ty Supervisor of Elections Jada
Williams. They have one son,
four-year-old Rod, Jr. "I've
been blessed," Williams said.
