Lee Teenager Killed
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A Lee teenager was killed in a one-vehicle accident on Sun-
day, December 31, when the truck he was riding in overturned
and he was ejected.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Nobeli Her-
nandez, 15, was traveling westbound on US 90 when he veered
onto the westbound shoulder. Hernandez overcorrected, steering
the 1996 Ford Explorer he was driving back into the lane.
The Explorer began to rotate counterclockwise as it slid
across the westbound and eastbound lanes.
The SUV continued onto the grass shoulder and overturned
onto railroad tracks.
Hemandez was ejected during the rollover and came to a fi-
nal rest south of the railroad tracks.
The Explorer came to a final rest, south of where Hernandez
lay.
Hernandez was pronounced dead at the scene by Madison
County EMS.

Fugitive Arrested
A Leon County fugitive was arrested in Madison County af-
ter he was found hiding in an attic crawl space.
On Saturday morning, December 23, Deputy Jason G. Whit-
field of the sheriff's office informed Lieutenant Mark W. Joosf
that the Leon County Sheriff's Office had an active arrest war-
rant for Henry Theodore "Teddy" Salmons for Violation Of Pro-
bation: Grand Theft. Whitfield in-
formed Joost that he went to Salmons'
residence numerous times in an attempt
to serve this warrant but was unable to
make.contact. Whitfield informed Joost
that he suspected that Salmons was hid-
ing in the residence and he requested
assistance in locating him.
At approximately 11:05 a.m. that day,
Sergeant Freddie A. Register, Deputy
Whitfield and Lt. Joost proceeded to
Salmons' residence.
Henry Theodore Register covered the front entrance;
"Toddy" Salmons Deputy Whitfield covered the east side
of the residence, and Lt. Joost knocked
on the back door. A television was on in the living room, but
there was no response to numerous knocks.
Register, Whitfield and Joost all heard movement inside the
residence. Another resident eventually responded to Lt. Joost'
knocks and verbal commands.
After informing-the resident that there was an active arrest
warrant for Salmons, the resident consented to Lt. Joost's re-
quest to search the residence. While checking the bathroom, Lt.

New Laws In Effect


For 2007
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A new law lets parents access their child's driving record
online instead of paying the $3.10 charge to have a copy mailed
to them.
The change took place because of the death of Jeffrey Kla-
patch, 18, in a motorcycle accident in Lakeland. Klapatch was
speeding at 130 miles per hour when the accident occurred.
Klapatch's parents later said that they were not aware that
their son had nine speeding tickets on his record.
Parents may find their child's records at
www.hsmv.state.fl.us.
Another new provision requires motorcycles registered to
drivers 21 years or younger to show a special license plate.
Another new law, which took effect January 1, 2007, con-
cerns the Department of Juvenile Justice.
Because of concerns from judges and lawyers, the state leg-
islature decided to undertake a technical reorganization of the
Department.
Included is a requirement for the chronological presentation
of delinquency proceedings which means records start when the
child enters the system until their case is resolved.
Another law establishes a 19-member commission called
the Council on the Social Status of Black Men and Boys.
The Council will study factors such as homicide rates, arrest
and incarceration rates, poverty, and violence. The purpose of
the Council is to educate the black community and prevent
crime.

Madison County's new water and septic system at the interstate interchar ges is tentatively scheduled for completion by
the second week of February.
"Right now, the contractors are trying to tweak things at the end, and hat's what's caused a delay," County Manager

problem there and they are fixing it."
Cherry said construction is currently 96 percent finished.
Standard Contractors, a Valdosta, Ga.-based firm, is handling the work )n the infrastructure.
"We will have a meeting with Standard and its engineers

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


Letter To The Editor.
To the people and places that make Madison County beautiful:
Sadly enough, this will be my last article written for the Madi-
son community. I have been with the Madison County Carrier &
The Enterprise Recorder for a year now and I've received more
blessings than I thought possible for one person.
Madison County's people and places are some of the greatest
I've ever experienced. A simple "hello," a warm smile or a sincere
hug is what you'll find on the streets of Madison. I found that with-
out looking, just doing my day-to-day job. ,
Reporting the latest happenings for Madison County was a job
that I took with no primary experience and a great opportunity that
my publisher, Emerald Kinsley, gave to me. The staff at Greene
Publishing, Inc. is one of the best around and works hard to pro-
vide each and every one of you in the Madison community just
what you want and need to know every Wednesday and Friday.
To all of the people of Madison, I don't have enough room to
thank everyone that I have worked with individually for my time
here. So, I'll try to sum it all up to the best of my ability.
To all of the wonderful civic organizations such as the Rotary,
Kiwanis and Lions' Club, who are dedicated to making a positive
impact throughout the county, to the churches in the community
who are dedicated to changing lives in the name of the Lord; to the
nursing homes such as Lake Park of Madison; Madison Nursing
Center and Pine Lake Nursing Home for welcoming me into not
only their work place, but their home; to my lovely ladies of the
Madison Woman's Club who I joined each month for fun and fel-
lowship; to my friends of the 55 Plus Club who showered me with
their love and support each month; to the Madison County School

Madison County Central School; Madison County Alternative Ex-

Greenville Elementary schools, who greeted me kindly each time I
covered a school event and who diligently prepares Madison Coun-
ty's children for a bright future in education; to Madison County
school's clubs who are continuing to make a difference in Madison
through their admirable efforts; to my friends and associates at
Miss Billie Jean's who are as kind as they can be; to my students
in Jo Ragans' class at Pinetta Elementary School who filled my
heart with joy by their smiling faces and heartfelt hugs; to Betty
Blair for her sincerity; to Bill and Margaret Throgmorton for all the
help and love I've received from them; to my delightful and elegant
Red Hatters; to my friends at Food For Thought; to Emergency
Management who keeps Madison informed about threatening

county; to the fire departments and Emergency Medical Services
who save lives of Madison County people everyday; to the ladies
at Greenville City Hall, Lee City Hall and the Madison County
Chamber of Commerce whose main concern is Madison County;
to the Domestic Violence Task Force and the Refuge House for tak-
ing in domestic violence and sexually abused victims; to the annu-
al Livestock Show...what an experience that was! To all of my
sources and partners who helped me put together a history page full
of rich historical memories of Madison; to the United Way Cam-
paign Team and supporters who are helping raise funds to stay put
in Madison; to the seniors and to the smiling faces at the Madison
and Greenville Senior Citizens Centers.
To anyone and everyone who I've encountered during my time
here, you've made my working experience not only a pleasant one,
but an unforgettable one.
I hope that this letter at least somewhat expresses how very
grateful I am to have friends and family such as each and every one
of you. I thank God each day for the experiences I've encountered,
the friends I've made, that I call family, and the memories I've
made that will last a life time. This is what makes Madison Coun-
ty a beautiful place to be, on the inside and out.

Thank-you,
Jessalyn Covell


Thanks To Madison County For Being Friendly And Polite


Dear Madison County,
I recently reside in St. Augustine, Florida but, my Husband
and I own a piece of property in Lee. We have been visiting
Madison County on the weekends to do work on the property
and to visit Lee and Madison so that we may get to know our
way around. I would like to thank "All the People of Madison
County" for being so friendly and polite. Downtown Merchants,
Jiffy in the Countryside or the General Store at Falmouth Cross-
ing everyone of all classes have been very polite and friendly.
We recently had to go to the Madison County Courthouse to
file some paperwork and I also spent time sitting on one of the


many benches provided downtown, just watching all the people
interacting with each other. It was like a scene out of a Norman
Rockwell painting. Everyone gives a wave or hello to each oth-
er, which is something we do not see anymore in many places
around the U.S.A. During a recent visit, my Husband's broth-
er visited us and we left his truck on the property and he rode to
town with us. While in Madison we walked downtown visiting
several of the merchants. Upon entering each store, even though
no one knows who we are, we were always given a "Hello." and
"Can I help you?" Upon our arrival back to the property, the
Sheriff was right behind us to check us out. I would like to


Thank my neighbors for being concerned and calling the Sher-
iff to make sure that no one was up to "no good." Great Neigh-
borhood Watch! I would also like to Thank the Officer, as he
was very professional and very polite as well.
I am looking forward to our move to Madison County and
becoming a part of such a wonderful community. Not only does
your County have a beautiful countryside, but it has great Char-
acter in all its people.

THANK YOU!
Barbara Fitch


Robert E. Lee Freed His Slaves At Arlington In 1862


Dear Editor,
Few people know that the town of Lee, Florida was named
after the great Confederate General Robert E. Lee. But even
fewer people know the man was born 200 years ago on January
19, 1807.
Robert Edward Lee was the fifth child born to Revolution-
ary War hero Henry "Light Horse Harry" Lee III and Ann Hill
Carter Lee at Stratford Hall Plantation, in Westmoreland Coun-
ty, Virginia. After loosing his father at the age of 11, his mother,
a devout Christian, raised him and his siblings, teaching them
discipline, patience, and a great devotion to the Christian faith.
Growing up, he was an avid animal lover and even kept a pet
rattlesnake.
_- Lee graduated second in his class from the West Point Mil-
it.iy Academy in 1829 without a single demerit, a recognition
unequaled to this very day. Following his graduation, Lee was
given a commission as an engineer and helped build the St.
Louis waterfront, as well as Fort Pulaski in Savannah, Georgia.
Around this same time, he married Mary Anna Randolph
Custis, the great-granddaughter of the first president of the Unit-
ed States, George Washingtorn and his wife Martha. Robert and
Mary Lee had seven children. Mary suffered from rheumatoid
arthritis, and by 1861, was confined to a wheelchair.
The 5'11" Lee served in the United States Army and with
the rank of Captain, fought in the Wxr with Mexico, where he
was wounded at the Battle of Chapultkpec. After the Mexican
War, he moved his wife into her parent's i ome, the grand house
at Arlington Plantation known as the Cusi: s mansion, overlook-
ing what is now Arlington National Cemetei'y.
In 1852, Lee was appointed Superintentent of the West
Point Military Academy and was considered o0\e of the best su-


perintendents in the history of the school. Colonel Lee served in
the United States Army for 32 years, and was offered command
of Federal Forces by Abraham Lincoln at the outset of the War
for Southern Independence. After suffering a great deal of inter-
nal conflict, Lee declined Lincoln's offer and chose instead to
link his fate with the Confederate States of America, when he
stated "Save in the defense of my native State, I never desire
again to draw my sword".
Brigadier-General Robert E. Lee returned to Georgia in No-
vember 1861 and took command of the coastal defenses of
South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida and assumed command of
the Army of Northern Virginia on June 1, 1862. He served his
native state of Virginia and the military forces of The Confeder-
ate States of America for four years under Confederate President
Jefferson Davis. At the end of this same year, "Marse Robert" as
he was known by his slaves, filed a Deed of Manumission, free-
ing all of the slaves at Arlington Plantation.
After four long years of fighting, General Lee surrendered
his army of tired, sick, and starving men at Appomattox Court
House on April 9, 1865. This effectively brought the American
Civil War to an end and other Confederate field commanders
followed his example.
After the War, Robert E. Lee was nearly tried as a traitor,
but was given the suspension of his civil rights instead. He
helped rebuild the nation by serving as president of Washington
College in Lexington, Virginia. The school was renamed Wash-
ington-Lee University in his honor.
On October 12, 1870, two weeks after suffering a stroke,
Robert E. Lee died from pneumonia at the age of 63. His last
words were "Strike the tent!". He was buried underneath Lee
Chapel at Washington-Lee University. His beloved horse, Trav-


eller, was lead behind the general's caisson with his master's size
4 1/2 boots reversed in the stirrups, and his bridle and saddle
draped in black. Just a few months later, Traveller was put down
after developing lockjaw. The iron gray, 16-hands high horse is
now buried beside the Lee Chapel building, which houses the
crypt of.his master. The stable gates where Traveller was kept
during Lee's years at the college, remain open and are never to
be closed.
In the 1970's, President Gerald Ford restored Lee's cit-
izenship.
The military genius of Robert E. Lee continues to be stud-
ied in many schools. His teachings are still inspiring today, and
he remains a hero among many Americans, young and old,
northern and southern, even during a time of political correct-
ness. He was a great man, a great Christian, and a great general.
The residents of Lee, Florida should be very proud of their
town's namesake on his 200th Birthday and for all eternity.

Confederately yours,
Rebekah Basford Edwards

Jerry Ford
Today the nation lays to rest the 38th president of the Unit-
ed States, Gerald R. Ford. Dead at the grand old age of 93, the
"accidental president" lived a long and fruitful life. I say acci-
dental because he was never elected in a general election to ei-
ther the vice presidency or the top job. Instead after serving for
25 years in the House of Representatives rising to become mi-
nority leader, he was appointed to fill the position vacated by
Vice President Spiro Agnew in October 1973. Less than a year
later on August 9, 1974, he assumed the presidency following
the resignation of Richard Nixon.
Jerry Ford was known as a common, humble man which is
practically unheard of in politics where egos abound. He hailed
from Midwestern roots growing up in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
He was a star athlete, probably the most accomplished among
our collections of presidents and an Eagle Scout. He attended
the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, played center on two
national championship football teams, and captained the team
as a senior.
I love this story about Ford because of the lesson it teaches
us: upon graduation, he was offered two pro football contracts
including one by the Green Bay Packers, but his ambition was
to attend law school. When Yale offered him a position as an
assistant coach, he jumped at the chance because it would per-
mit him to attend the prestigious Yale Law School. I know it
was a different era but today, how many star athletes would take
law school over professional sports? Of course, Ford under-
stood that an athletic career is transitory while law is a profes-
sion for life.
As a young lawyer in Western Michigan, Ford was opposed
to America's entry into World War II, but that abruptly changed
with the Japanese attack. He joined the Navy and served aboard
an aircraft carrier in the Pacific, rising to the rank of lieutenant
commander., As a result,, he felt that an essential qualification
for the position of commander-in-chief was prior military set-
vice. I wholeheartedly agree.
In 1948, he was first elected to Congress representing the
Grand Rapids area. His reputation was as a solid old school Re-
publican, moderate in social views but fiscally conservative.
Unspectacular in his approach, he was known as a consensus
builder which led to his selection as minority leader.
A personal side light in late April 1973, I was in Wash-
ington with my family prior to heading for an overseas assign-
ment to England. Linda and I paid a visit to our congressman,
Don Fuqua. After a short interview, Don offered up one of his
administrative assistants to take us on a personal tour of the
Capitol which we greatly appreciated. In a hallway outside the
House of Representatives, a group of three fellows brushed by
us, obviously in a hurry. One of the men looked back at me in
apology for bumping us aside it was Jerry Ford. A few min-
utes later, from the gallery we saw Minority Leader Ford an-
nounce that Texan John Connolly was switching parties from
Democrat to Republican. The big news was the cause of his hur-
ry, but his.renowned humanity was shown in the glance back in
our direction. To Jerry Ford, every man was important; every
person had worth.
Ford's two and a half year presidency was most noted for
his pardon of Richard Nixon, but there were other important
moments like the Helsinki Accords, evacuation of Saigon, and
strategic arms limitation. For three decades following his nar-
row loss of the 1976 election to Jimmy Carter, he was a model
of presidential decorum in retirement.
A common theme for liberal elites that run the Democratic
Party is to deride Republican leaders as dumb. Ford was no ex-
ception; Lyndon Johnson infamously said that Jerry Ford suf-
fered from playing football without a helmet. But there was a lot
more to the man; he was smart and deliberate, if not the most ar-
ticulate man whd occupied the Oval Office.
Two final observations about the passing of this simple but
great man Jerry Ford was the turning point in his party's phi-
losophy from moderate to conservative. His successor as party
leader was Ronald Reagan. Second, it seems to me that his
death is a metaphor for his home state of Michigan which is
steadily losing population. Gone are the mIainstream western
Republicans like Ford, Bob Griffin, and Guy Vander Jaqt. They
have been replaced by big city liberals who are wedded to high-
er taxes and organized labor. Will they ever wake up; if not, will
they have enough sense to turn out the lights?

On December 21, Dawn's Kinder Academy "rocked" Lee
Methodist Church with their 11th Annual Christmas Program.
It's hard to imagine what infants and toddlers can do to entertain
grown-ups. Dawn Phillips managed not only to entertain the
parents and relatives assembled to watch, but got very small
children to behave, dance and perform on stage.
Phillips opened the program with a short reading and things
got rolling. First out was the infant group. Phillips has all the
children enrolled in her day care center divided by age. The in-
fants were dressed in festive garb and were held up for the crowd
to see as Jingle Bells played. Several of the older babies were
rolled onto the stage in a decorated stroller.
The toddlers came out next. Each one-year old had angel
wings and a, golden halo. Most of them smiled and laughed
(there were a few tears) as they entered the room to the sound of
Hark the Herald Angels Sing. Parents mobbed the stage to get
photos of their little ones.
The two-and three-year-olds pranced onto the stage dressed
in reindeer antlers and harnesses, while Rudolph the Red Nosed
Reindeer played.
The Pre-K children played various percussion instruments
as they accompanied Santa Claus is Coming to Town.
After the stage performance, everyone sat down to a buffet
supper, provided by Dawn's Kinder Academy. Presents were ex-
changed and Santa Claus arrived to take requests from all the
kids and pass out goodie bags.
The Christmas party was a great success and the parents
know how much work Phillips and her crew put in to it. Thanks

Time for New Year's
Financial Resolutions
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Once again, it's time to make New Year's resolutions. If
you can succeed in your efforts to exercise more, travel,
learn a new language or any of the other worthy goals you
might have, you can expand your horizons and enjoy a bet-
ter quality of life. But if you want to make an even bigger
impact on your future, you may want to make and keep -
financial resolutions for the coming year.
As with all resolutions, the financial ones are easier to
'keep if they don't force you to drastically change your
lifestyle. So, with that in mind, here are a few attainable
financial resolutions to consider for 2007:

Increase your retirement plan contributions. If your
salary goes up this year, increase the percentage of your
earnings that you defer into your 401(k) plan (or your
403(b), if you work for a non-profit agency, or 457(b) if you
work for a state, county, city or other governmental
agency). With tax-deferred'growth, pre-tax contributions
and a variety of investment choices, these plans are great
retirement savings vehicles. Plus, since the money is taken
out before it even reaches your check, you won't really
"miss" your increased payments. And in 2007, the contribu-
tion limit for these plans has increased to $15,500. (If you're
50 or older, you can contribute an additional $5,000.)
"Max out" on your IRA. In 2007, you can put up to
$4,000 into a traditional or Roth IRA, or $5,000 if you are
50 or older. If you cannot come up with the maximum
amount at once, try dividing your IRA contributions into 12
equal monthly payments and have the money taken auto-
matically from a checking or savings account.
Build adequate cash reserves. Try to build a sufficient
cash cushion about six to 12 months' worth of living
expenses to handle any unexpected financial needs, such
as a major car repair or an expensive new appliance. By
building an emergency fund, you won't need to tap into
your investments. And by giving your investments the
potential to grow as long as possible, you'll accelerate your
chances for progress toward your long-term financial goals.
Review your investment portfolio. It's a good idea to
review your investment portfolio at least once a year. Over
the course of 12 months, your life can change in many
ways; e.g., new spouse, new house, new child, new job, etc.
And if your life changes significantly, your investment
goals may also change. But even if your circumstances
haven't changed much in a year, you should review your
holdings to make sure your investment mix reflects your
individual risk tolerance, time horizon and long-term objec-
tives. A financial professional can help you review your
investments to make sure you are still on track.
Don't take a "time out" from investing. In every year,
you can find any number of events war, political turmoil,
natural disasters, market volatility, etc. that might moti-
vate you to "take a break" from investing. But the most suc-
cessful investors keep on investing, no matter how gloomy
the news may be. So, in 2007, look beyond the headlines.
Instead, focus on quality investments and your long-term
investment strategies.

If you can achieve these New Year's resolutions, you'll go a
long way toward potentially improving your financial situ-
ation in 2007 and beyond.

Linda Howell was honored on her retirement from the
Supervisor of Elections Office with a retirement reception
in the Courthouse on Thursday, December 28. Also hon-
ored was her longtime assistant, Carol Flournoy. Both
women enjoyed their last day in office on Friday, Decem-
ber 29.
Howell had worked for Kathleen Burnette, her prede-
cessor, for 21 years. When Burnette announced her retire-
ment, Howell took off to campaign and Carol Flournoy
took Howell's place in the office.
A number of guests, including Supervisors of Elections
from five different counties, were on hand to wish Howell
and Flournoy a fond farewell.
Tim Sanders, Madison County's Clerk of the Court,
presented Howell with a present from all the constitutional
officers.
Howell told everyone present that Flournoy had not
only been her assistant, but her best friend.
"She can talk to a wall," Howell joked. "When I didn't
have anything to say, Carol would think of something. She
has always been friendly to everyone and has never looked
down on anyone."
Howell presented Flournoy with a gift for her years of
service.
"It's kind of bittersweet," Howell said in an interview
on Friday. "Part of me wants to stay. I know it will be a big
void. I just have to find new things to do and places to go."
Howell said that she will be taking care of her mother,
Henri Tuten, and will be going on a cruise in February. She
and her husband, Phillip, will also be working with
Campers on a Mission, helping build churches with the
Baptist missions team.
"We will probably be going to Mayo to help out build-
ing a church there," she said.
Howell said that she and Phillip would be going out
west in the summer.
Howell and her husband, Phillip, have two children,
Keith and Phil, and five grandchildren and two step-grand-
children.
Flournoy said that she and her husband, Covie, who is
a pharmacist at Winn-Dixie, are looking at doing more
church-work during their retirement. First, however, they
are going to Canton, Ga., where her daughter, Elizabeth
Silver, lives. Elizabeth is scheduled to give birth to her first
child, a boy, on February 12.
Flournoy has three children, Eugenia McGowan, Jim
Flournoy and Elizabeth Silver; seven grandchildren; and a
grandchild who is deceased.
"I'm going to miss everybody," Flournoy said, "but I'm
not going to miss the pressure. Each election is different in
a little way."

Wedding Dresses Why They Are White And Other Wedding Lore


Brides have always worn
white, right? Not so. In ancient
times brides wore bright col-
ored wedding dresses to signi-
fy their joy. White for western
brides didn't become fashion-
able until Queen Victoria wore
it at her wedding to signify her
status. White dresses never did
signify purity until the Christ-
ian churches put that label on
them. So feel free to add a little
color to your wedding outfit.
Wedding bands made of
hemp or braided grass were the
earliest rings. They eventually
fell out of favor, replaced by
durable metals until about the
15th century when diamonds
came upon the scene, to signify


a valuable strong commitment,
a tradition which most modem
couples choose to keep.
When grooms would "cap-
ture" their brides and or were
afraid of evil spirits they would
cover the woman's head to
keep her from being recog-
.nized.
Bridesmaids' dresses are
all identical. Where did this
practice originate? Long ago
the brides friends wore the
same exact outfit as the bride to
confuse the evil spirits who
wanted to destroy her happi-
ness. It also helped to prevent
the bride from being kidnapped
by a rival suitor.

oped from the ancient belief,
,. that on their wed-

ding day, the bride and groom
brought good luck to everyone
they touched. Modem couples
often pass on this and prefer to
"make the rounds" greeting
their guests during the wedding
dinner.
In ancient Rome a mar-
riage was not legal until the
couple kissed. The kiss was
considered a legal bond neces-
sary to seal all contracts. This
is thought to be the origin of
the present day custom of
banging a spoon against a glass

ty until she married, and then
she was her husband's proper-
ty. At the wedding the Dad
would literally "give her
away," transferring ownership
to the husband. Now brides
often have their fathers or
both parents accompany
them, and have the officiant
ask "Who supports this couple
in marriage?" The parents an-
swer "We do."
There is no need to ex-
plain what the honeymoon is.
But do you know where the
term originated? In ancient
Ireland, when a couple mar-
ried, the parents would make
sure they had a supply of a
drink made from fermented
honey called mead, that
would last for a full cycle of
the moon. It was believed
they would be blessed with a
son within a year.
Back when a bride could
be forced by a captor to mar-
ry, the groom would have to
carry her against her will into
her new home. The Romans
thought that it was bad luck,
for a bride to trip over the
threshold so to prevent that,
the groom carried her.
During the Middle Ages
the length of a bride's train in-
dicated her rank in court. The
longer her train the closer she
was to the King and Queen
and the greater her influence
with them.
Here are a few more un-
usual traditions from around
the world. The Greek bride
tucks a sugar cube in her
glove to "sweeten the union."
According to Hindu beliefs
rain on your wedding day is
good luck. Some western cul-
tures believe rain is unlucky.
In Holland it is traditional
to plant a tree outside the
newlyweds home as a symbol
of fertility. Finnish brides tra-
ditionally carried a pillowcase
door to door, collecting gifts.
An older married man went
with her, symbolizing a long
marriage.
Korean brides wear red


and yellow outfits for their
weddings. Danish brides and
grooms used to confound the
evil spirits by cross-dressing.
Egyptian parents traditionally
do all the cooking for a week,
so that the couple can relax.
In many cultures includ-
ing Hindu, Egyptian and
Celtic, the hand of a bride and
groom .ae tied together as a
si mbol of their new bond and
commitment to the mar-
riage. This is the origin
of the expression "Ty-
ing the knot".
In Roman mythology
thegod Juno rules
S, er childbirth,
Marriage and the
hearth. This is be-
lived to be the
reason for the
popularity of June weddings.
African-American wed-
dings often hold to the tradi-
tion of "jumping the broom."
Slaves in the United States
were not allowed to marry,
so they would exhibit their
love by jumping over a
broom to the beat of drums.
It now is symbol of the cou-
ple's intention to set up a
home together.
Japanese couples be-
come man and wife when
they take the first of nine
sips of sake. In Irish tradi-
tion once the bride and
groom were in the church,
the guests would lock the
doors to make sure the
groom couldn't back out. It
was also important that a
male not a female be the first
to wish joy to the newly
married bride.
There is an old English
rhyme that brides have been
obeying for years. "Some-
thing old, something new,
something borrowed, some-


thing blue." The actual
rhyme also included this line
"and a sixpence in your.
shoe". Relatives usually of-
fer the something old, like
great grandmother's antique
cameo, or your mom's gown.
These items provide conti-
nuity from generation to
generation.
The "new" symbolizes
home for the future and can
include your gown or veil, a
strand of pearls, bouquet of
silk flowers, or a new coin
to tuck in your shoe. The
choices here are endless.
Borrowed happiness is
symbolized by the some-,
thing borrowed. It should be
something that brought hap-
piness to the owner. Some
possibilities are your moth-
er in law's ruby brooch,
your dad's silk handker-
chief, or your parents' wed-
ding song.
The blue .something
symbolizes fidelity, love
and good fortune. Often,
there is a blue ribbon on the
garter. Other ideas are blue
flowers, delphiniums, or
irises in your bouquet, sap-
phire earrings and necklace,
or even your lingerie.
You may want to con-
sider incorporating some of
these ideas into your wed-
ding plans. There are books
and magazines that you can
search for traditions from
your own ethnic or religious
traditions. Perhaps you like
something you've heard
about from another culture
that you can adapt for your
wedding. If you will have
children at your reception
you might want to borrow
the Puerto Rican idea of
pinatas, even the adults
might enjoy that one.

Unless you are a million-
aire, or your family has a back-
yard that prints money, chances
are, some form of budgeting is
necessary when planning for
your wedding. Even million-
aires have a budget.
First, decide on the kind of
wedding you want. You will
have to device a budget based
on your priorities using avail-
able resources. Do you need a
"big" formal wedding? Or
would, it be, possible to trim
away some of the frills?
Below, is a list of items that
are commonly needed for a
wedding. After looking at each
item, think about how much
you would want to spend on
each one, and make a list. Of
course, feel free to add or delete
any of the items, for different
people of different locale and
culture would have different
needs and preferences:

This list is by no means ex-
haustive. However, it should
give you an idea as to the
amount of money you will want
to, allocate for each item. For
example, if your budget is real-
ly tight, would it be possible to
have one of your friends or rel-
atives do the photography or
videography? Hiring a profes-
sional will bring better results,
naturally, but it is costly.
What about invitation
cards? Depending on your bud-
get, you could either have a
printer do it for you or you
could depend on your trusty
color bubble-jet printer to do the
job for you. Get quality paper if
you like, but you will definitely
save a lot doing it yourself.
Honeymooning? You could
either opt for a honeymoon in a
foreign land or you could save
by checking out some place
nearer home. Finding a nice

ably priced hotel would most
likely suffice if you have a tight
budget.
So the conclusion of the
matter is this: decide how much
you are willing and are able to
spend on your wedding. The
wedding is simply a nice begin-
ning to a long and lasting rela-
tionship; do not let it begin bad-
ly by unwise spending. Be in-
debted to your spouse, not your
bankers.

Seven Healthy Snacks To Try This Week


By Mindy Hermann, R.D.
(NAPSI)-It's okay to snack.
In fact, many of us should snack
as a way to eat all the foods we
need each day.
"The latest edition of the
Dietary Guidelines for Ameri-
cans recommends that adults get
three daily servings of dairy, two
cups of fruit and 21/2 cups of
vegetables, along with plenty of
foods made with whole grains,"
says Jennifer Anderson, Ph.D.,
R.D., Professor and Extension
Specialist at Colorado State Uni-
versity in'Fort Collins. "It's hard


to eat that much in meals alone."
These seven snacks help
bridge the gap:
1. Grab fruit. "Bring
along fruits that are convenient
and not messy, like a banana for .
the car, an apple for your desk
drawer or a small box of raisins
or homemade trail mix for your
purse. Fruits are relatively low in
calories and high in nutrients
like potassium and antioxi-
dants," advises Dr. Anderson.
2. Dip your vegetables.
Cut up raw vegetables-celery,
carrots, cauliflower, broccoli,

About Healthier Cooking
Pass on the salt. Cut back on the sugar. Some easy recipe ad-
justments may be in order for healthier cooking. The November
issue of Mayo Clinic Women's HealthSource answers questions
about healthier cooking.
Does adding salt to the water when boiling speed up cook-
ing? Adding salt can increase the temperature at which water
boils, but it doesn't affect cooking times for foods. It adds un-
needed sodium, which may contribute to blood pressure con-
cerns. Another reason to pass on the salt: It draws water out of
plant cells and can make some vegetables mushy. It can also
make beans and peas tough.
To reduce calories in baked goods, how'much sugar can you
cut out of the recipe? In most baked goods, you can leave out
half of the sugar the recipe calls for without significantly affect-
ing texture or taste. Leaving out 1/2 cup of sugar cuts about 360
calories from an entire recipe. But because sugar increases mois-
ture in baked goods, make sure you use at least 1/4 cup of sug-
ar, honey or molasses for every cup of flour.
Can I grill fruits and vegetables? Eggplant, peaches and
peppers cook well on the grill. In fact, you can grill most fruits
and vegetables, including summer squash, sweet onions, mush-
rooms, broccoli, tomatoes, mangoes, pineapples and pears. The
key for grilling fruits and vegetables is to use low heat. Coals are
ready when you can hold your hand about 5 inches above the
heat for about five seconds.


green pepper, green beans, cu-
cumbers, mushrooms or zucchi-
ni-and enjoy with salsa or a low-
fat yogurt dip. Vegetables are
filling and offer the most nutri-
tion bang for the calories, plus
they are linked to healthier body
weight.
3. Relax with a latte.
When made with low-fat or skim
milk, a latte or cappuccino packs
in calcium and other dairy nutri-
tion. Or make your own cafd au
lait by mixing together equal
parts warm milk and hot coffee.
4. Enjoy an afternoon
breakfast. At 100 calories per
serving, Whole Grain Total can
help you lose weight when
combined with diet and exer-.
cise. Top with skim or low-fat
milk plus fruit for a wholesome


and nutrition-packed snack.
5. Make it Mexican.
Place shredded reduced-fat
cheese atop a corn tortilla and
warm in a skillet. Add salsa,
diced tomato or a spoonful of
fat-free refried beans.
6. Go for a Graham.
Spread peanut butter or
whipped low-fat cottage
cheese on two to four graham
cracker squares. Place sliced
banana, apple or grapes on top.,
7. For a Souper Snack,
puree cooked broccoli, carrots,
cauliflower, spinach and other
leftover vegetables with low-
sodium broth or vegetable
juice until smooth. Heat and
then season to taste. On the
go? Bring the soup in a travel
mug.


Try these guidelines to
good health:
* Strive for a healthy weight.
* Do some physical activity
every day.
* Make your diet choices
based on the food pyramid.
* Eat a variety of grains,
especially whole grains,
every day.
* Make sure food is safe-
keep hot foods hot and cold
foods cold and don't use
food that is past its expira-
tion date.


- Work toward a diet that is
low in saturated fat and
cholesterol.
* Limit your consumption of
sugar and salt.
- Drink alcohol in modera-
tion.

It's never too late
to start eating right
and leading a more
active life. Even
small changes can
have a big result!

Take it all off... 4

all those extra, unwanted pounds.


Losing weight is more than just

cutting calories. Getting in shape

is actually a three-step process -

a total lifestyle change,

exercise and eating right.


Exercise
Exercise is essential to weight control and a
healthy lifestyle. Just look at what it can do for you:
Strengthen your heart and muscles
Bum calories
Boost energy
Increase your self-esteem
Improve your mood
Relieve stress
Lower the risk of heart disease, hypertension and diabetes
Decrease the risk of some cancers

minutes of exercise five times a week. To maintain your weight, ,
30 minutes a day is recommended. S


Eat Right
* More than just cutting calories, you need to
establish good eating habits.
1. Don't skip meals. You'll just be tempted to eat more later.
2. Stay away from late-night snacking.
3. Control your intake of alcohol.
4. Say "NO!" to high-fat foods.
5. Eat more fruits and vegetables.
6. Stock up on snacks that are better for you-such as
carrots, baked chips and fresh fruit.
Be patient with yourself Remember to focus on your
accomplishments, not your failures, and go on from there.
Now that you have changed your lifestyle,
started exercising and are eating right, the
most important thing is to not expect instant
results. You need to make a lifetime
commitment to a better and more
healthy lifestyle.

Bernard Brinson is
committed to play for Flori-
da State next year.
By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Bernard Brinson is reaping
the honors in his senior year as
a Cowboy. Already committed
to FSU, Brinson participated in
the North/ South All Star Game
in Lakeland December 22.
Brinson played defensive back
for the defense on the North
team, which took home an easy
16-3 victory.


Bryant Stadium in Polk
County was packed with col-
lege scouts waiting to see the
cream of this year's Florida
crop of football athletes play
against each other.
Lake Gibson defensive
end Claude Davis, who stands
at 6 feet 4 inches and weighs
235, came up with two big
sacks against one of the top
quarterbacks in the nation,
Robert Marve, who led Plant to
a 4A state championship.
The North's clinching
touchdown came with 3:20 left
in the game when quarterback
Robert Arnheim from Orlando-
Edgewater sneaked in from one
yard out. The North scored one
TD in the first quarter, made a
field goal in the second, went
scoreless in the third and
scored again in the fourth. The
only points the South was able
to put on the board against the
tough North defense, which in-
cluded Brinson, was a field
goal in the second quarter.


Class 1-B Gets 15 New Schools
Redistricting Will Likely Affect Next Year's Playoffs


By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Aucilla Christian Academy
was in Class 1-B, District 2 for
the 2006 season. With the influx
of 15 new schools from the Inde-
pendent Class into 1-B, ACA has
been moved into District 1.
2006 ACA district opponents
FAMU High, John Paul H and
Munroe were also moved into 1-
B, District 1. The new Class 1-B,
District 1 has six teams.
Instead of facing three other
district teams, ACA will now face
five other district teams. The two
additional schools are Cottondale
and Graceville. To be classified as
a Class 1-B team, the school's
population must be between 50
and 232 students.
The Independent Class con-
sists of schools with football
teams who do not wish to partici-
pate in the playoffs. When the
teams-move out of the Indepen-
dent Class, they become eligible
for the playoff games.
The changes in Class 1-B
will likely affect next year's play-
off run for all the teams in ACA's
new district. FAMU, Cottondale,
Graceville and John Paul II all
made it to the first round of the
playoffs. FAMU and Graceville
faced each other in the second
round and FAMU advanced to
become the 2006 state champion
in Class 1-B.
Madison County's Class 2-
A, District 2, stayed the same.
Madison will face the same dis-
trict opponents next year, Ft.
White, Dixie County and Taylor.
However, there was an influx of
six new schools into Class 2-A,
which resulted in Bolles' Class
2-A, District 3, swelling from six
schools to eight.
One of the new schools in


the Bolles' district is Femandina
Beach. Fernandina got down-
sized to Class 2-A from Class 4-
A. Yulee was added to the
Bolles' district from the Indepen-
dent classification. Bolles was
the Class 2-A state champ in
2006. Redistricting could affect
next year's playoffs. Schools in
Class 2-A have a student popula-
tion between 616 and 1066.
Two new schools moved
into Class 2-B. One, Bishop
Snyder, was moved into Hamil-
ton County's Class 2-B, District
3.
Bishop Snyder out of Jack-
sonville moved up from Class 1-
A. Hamilton's new district now
consists of Baldwin, Episcopal,
Trinity Christian and Bishop
Snyder. Florida High was
moved out of Hamilton's district
and into District 2.
Florida High now faces dis-
trict opponents Chipley,
Blountstown. and Bozeman.
Chipley, Blountstown, Florida
High and Trinity Christian all
made it to the first round of the
playoffs in 2006. Chipley, Trini-
ty Christian and Blountstown
advanced to the second round
and Blountstown made it into
the semi finals. The move could
affect Florida High's chances for
a playoff berth next season.
Schools in Class 2-B have a stu-
dent population between 411
and 616.
Classes 6-A through 3-A
have approximately 82 schools
in each Class. When you drop
into Class 2-A, there are only 39
schools with this size student
population. Class 2-B has 38
schools, Class 1-A 42 schools,
Class 1-B 49 schools and there
are 23 schools listed as Indepen-
dents.
