Named Century Farm Family
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Jim and Betty O'Toole,
owners of O'Tooles Herb
Farm, have been named a Cen-
tury Farm Family by the Flori-
da Department of Agriculture.
Dennitt Hill Mays, one of
Betty's ancestors, was the first
person to settle on the land.
Later, Mays' son-in-law,
Theodore Calhoun Livingston,
began farming the land, raising
cotton and cattle. Mays was the
first cattle farmer who raised
registered cattle in the state of
Florida.
The boll weevil came
along and put an end to cotton

farm.

table in the 1970's and the Jim and Betty O'Toole have been named a Century
family stopped growing it. Farm Family by the Florida Department of Agriculture.
They did keep growing flue-
cured tobacco until Theodore Livingston Fraleigh's death in 1989.
Betty said that her brother had run the farm before her, but had gotten out of the business. In
1990, wanting to save the farm for future generations, she and Jim looked for something that
might turn a profit, so the farm became O'Toole's Herb Farm.
The O'Tooles began producing culinary herbs to restaurants, but it did not work out, because
they had to work so hard to keep the restaurants supplied and to turn a profit.
"We had about 12 restaurants in Tallahassee and Thomasville that we were supplying," Bet-
ty said, "but it just about killed us."
The O'Toole's decided to just grow plants, instead of food for consumption in restaurants.
Today, the O'Tooles grow about 350 varieties of herbs on five acres of the farm. The rest of
the farm is filled with planted pines.
The O'Tooles grow 15 kinds of mint, 10 varieties of rosemary, 10 of thyme and 10 of laven-
der. In addition, they grow tarragon, marjoram, lime balm, catnip, garlic chives, oregano and
many more types of herbs.
The O'Tooles grow between 350 and 450 pounds of shitake mushrooms each year. The mush-
rooms produce a revenue stream during the cold winter months.

"Valentines For Troops"


Dear Editor:
With God's help and many willing participants, "Valen-
tines for Troops" has been a wonderful heart-to-heart success
story. Our family has been incredibly blessed by this project,
and we appreciate all the businesses, churches, schools and
others in the community who gave of their time to let our ser-
vice men and women in Iraq know we are thinking of them.
Thanks for making this effort such a HUGE success. Hope-
fully, it will encourage other efforts to honor our troops over-
seas.
Over 700 cards were mailed to American Soldiers serving
in Iraq, including two men of our own: Sam Stalnaker and
Travis Kinsley. Unfortunately, due to the privacy laws, the Vet-


eran's office was not allowed to give us any information re-
garding local Soldiers serving, so we sent what we could with
the addresses we were given. The 700 plus cards will be going
to ONE ENTIRE BATTALION (572 Soldiers) and ONE COM-
PANY (139 Soldiers) from Alaska that's been having a particu-
larly hard time adjusting in Iraq. We also set-up an email ad-
dress for the Soldiers to contact us if they are in need of prayer
support: madisoncountycares@yahoo.com .
Both my husband Jim and I, along with our children, Jim
HII and John, count it a privilege to live in Madison County.
We thank you for your support from the bottom of our hearts.
May we never forget the great sacrifices our Soldiers make each
and everyday to keep our country free! And, perhaps each time


we pass by our "Four Freedoms Monument" in the center of
our great city, we will be reminded to lift our Soldiers up in
prayer, as we pray for a lasting peace.
God bless America! And, God bless Madison County for
caring so deeply for our nation.

Sincerely,
Lisa Flournoy

Valentine's Day Is Next Week ---
I Am Proud To Say, I Have A Permanent Valentine
I read a short story once by Dale Galloway from his
"Dream a New Dream" publication. It goes like this:
"Little Chad was a shy, quiet young fella. One day he came
home and told his mother he'd like to make a valentine for
everyone in his class. Her heart sank. She thought, "I wish he
wouldn't do that!". because she had watched the children when
they walked home from school. Her Chad was always behind
them. But, Chad was never included. Nevertheless, she decid-
ed she would go along with her son. So, she purchased the pa-
per and glue and crayons. For three weeks, night after night,
Chad painstakingly made thirty-five valentines.
Valentine's Day dawned, and Chad was beside himself with
excitement! he carefully stacked them up, put them in a bag,
and bolted out the door. His mom decided to bake him his fa-
vorite cookies and serve them up warm and nice with a cool
glass of milk when he came home from school. She just knew
he would be disappointed...maybe that would ease the pain a lit-
tle. It hurt her to think that he wouldn't get many valentines --
maybe none at all. That afternoon she had the cookies anti milk
on the table. When she heard the children outside, she looked
out the window. Sure enough, here they came, laughing and
having the best time.
And, as always, there was Chad in the rear. He walked a lit-
tle faster than usual. She fully expected him to burst into tears
as soon as he got inside. His arms were empty, she noticed, and
when the door opened she choked back the tears. *'"
"Mommy has some warm cookies arid milk for you," she
said. But, he hardly heard her words. He just marched right on
by, his face aglow, and all he could say was: "Not a one.....not
a one." And, then he added, "I didn't forget a one; not a single
one."
The reason I am telling this story is to explain that it is not
in receiving, but in giving that we get the most rewards.
I remember when I told The Husband many years ago that
he wasn't as romantic as much as he used to be. The next day,
which was Valentine's Day, there on my door in the back of the
building, he had come early and had painted in huge letters,
"MEG- BE MY VAL-N-TINE I HOPE THIS IS ROW-MAD-
ECK ENOUG !! T. (His spelling has never been his strong
point.) I asked him the next year if I was going to get another
Valentine, and he said, "As long as I feel the same, I will leave
that one on your door. If I ever change my mind, I'll paint over
it. Just think --you have a permanent Valentine."
It's still there...so, Happy Valentine's Day, T.G.
1-4-3!!!! -Your, Meg
"Nuff Said...Bye for now... See 'ya.

THE TORCH

Is there a magic cutoff period when offspring become ac-
countable for their own actions? Is there a wonderful moment
when parents can become detached spectators in the lives of
their children and shrug, t's their le," ad feel nothing'
When I was, in my twenties s, tooQia ,,hospital ,ri'do.or
waiting for doctors to put a few stitches in my son's head. I
asked, "When do you stop worrying?" The nurse said, "When
they get out of the accident stage." My mother just smiled faint-
ly and said nothing.
When I was in my thirties, I sat on a little chair in a' class-
room and heard how one of my children talked incessantly, dis-
rupted the class, and was headed for a career making
license plates. As if to read nmy mind, a teacher said, "Don't wor-
ry, they all go through this stage and then you can sit back, relax
and enjoy them." My mother just smiled faintly and said noth-
ing.
When I was in my forties, I spent a lifetime waiting for the
phone to ring, the cars to come home, the front door to open. A
friend said, "They're trying to find themselves. Don't worry, in
a few years, you can stop worrying. They'll be adults." My
mother just smiled faintly and said nothing.
By the time I was 50, I was sick & tired of being vulnera-
ble. I was still worrying over my children, but there was a new
wrinkle. There was nothing I could do about it. My mother just
smiled faintly and said nothing. I continued to anguish over their
failures, be tormented by their frustrations and absorbed in their
disappointments.
My friends said that when my kids got married I could stop
worrying and lead my own life. I wanted to believe that, but I
was haunted by my mother's warm smile and her occasional,
"You look pale. Are you all right? Call me the minute you get
home. Are you depressed about something?"
Can it be that parents are sentenced to a lifetime of worry?
Is concern for one another handed down like a torch to blaze the
trail of human frailties and the fears of the unknown? Is concern
a curse or is it a virtue that elevates us to the highest form of life?
One of my children became quite irritable recently, saying
to me, "Where were you? I've been calling for 3 days, and no
one answered. I was worried." I smiled a warm smile. The torch
has been passed.

Where Superstitions

Originated
By Ashley Bell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Did you ever wonder where traditions or superstitions orig-
inated? Are you aware that some of the most ordinary practices
we do everyday were once done out of superstition?
An apple was thought to hold the knowledge of a maiden's
future husband. If you twist the stem once foi
each letter of the alphabet, the letter the stem
falls off on is the first initial of the man she
will wed.
A barber's pole originated from fifth-cen-
tury Rome, when a barber also acted as a sur-
geon and dentist. The white in the pole repre-
sented bandages; the red, the blood.
The use of lipstick comes from ancient sun worshippers
They believed that a red circle drawn around the mouth would
keep their soul intact and evil spirits out.
The wedding ring is worn on the third
finger of the left hand because it was be-
lieved that a love vein ran through that fin-
ger.
Artemis, the Greek goddess of the moon, was celebrated on
her birthday with moon-shaped honey cakes with candles on
top, from that birthday cakes came. Also it is recorded in many
Holy Books from different religions, that a phrase written on a
piece of food will come true, thus we write "Happy Birthday" on
the cake.
Wearing black for mourning was once for avoiding ghosts
of the dead, because it was thought that death was contagious.
Tombstones were to keep evil spirits trapped in the dead
body.
People with curly hair were favored by the sun god because
their locks resembled the rays of the sun.
In ancient Egypt eye shadow was worn to prevent the evil
eye fromeniering a person. -,',, , .
The word honeymoon was derived from newly weds drink-
ing a honey concoction on each of their first 30 days together,
going through all of the moon cycles.
A person with gray eyes is calculating, blue eyes is intelli-
gent, green eyes is creative, Brown eyes is flirtatious but loyal.
Kissing is rumored to be invented by a man who wanted to
see if his wife had been drinking behind
his back.
Hanging mistletoe over a doorway
was to welcome priests into a home, be-
cause it was believed that mistletoe should
never touch the ground. Kissing under the
mistletoe was to ensure the protection of
the two lovers kissing under it. -
So the next time you put on your eye
shadow or lipstick, be aware that you are warding off evil spir-

Taxes
In the most recent election, Republicans lost control of
Congress for the first time since the 1994 "conservative revolu-
tion." Certainly, the worsening problem with the war in Iraq
was primarily responsible for the Republicans losing about 30
seats in the House and six in the Senate. However, adding to the
problem was that too many Republicans forgot their conserva-
tive credentials. Nowhere was this more evident than with ear-
marks and other pork-barrel spending which exploded under
Republican leadership they dropped money faster than a
drunken sailor on his first shore leave in three months.
Sometimes I wonder if there is any real difference between
Republicans and Democrats; let's just call them politicians and
be done with it. Then I am reminded of a very central, clarion
separation between the parties taxes. In a nutshell, Republi-
cans want to lower the taxes that each of us pays. Democrats,
on the other hand, never met a tax they didn't like.
The American economy is booming for the fourth consecu-
tive year and year five looks pretty good at this point. Inflation
is low and in control. Gross National Product is growing faster
than anywhere else in the western world. The stock market is
Booming and profits returned to investors are excellent. More
and more Americans are becoming investors thanks to the per-
sonal retirement plans. Unemployment levels are at. record
lows. All-in-all it is a very rosy economic scenario.
The "cause and effect" answer for this great economic news
is sound monetary policy and lower taxes, thanks to the Bush
tax cuts of 2001 and 2003. particularly the latter. This was the
right prescription to lift us out of the 2000-01 mini-recession
." bought abodbt by the ddW~1' dIi :'"i fit "'l terror attacks'
More money was retained by the people who earned it rather
than given to the capricious needs of government. That result-
ed in deficit spending where we are gradually but surely lifting
ourselves out of the hole.
It is supply-side economics folks, and it works just like Mil-
ton Friedman predicted: when money is retained in the private
sector rather than sent to government in the form of taxes, it
leads to investment and economic growth. Increased economic
growth leads to'more receipts by the Treasury and hence, lower
deficit spending provided that we keep spending under control.
It isn't magic, but it is still amazing to watch.
Think about tax policy in this way: government at any lev-
el doesn't earn money; rather it generates revenue by taxing its
citizens. The citizens (that's you and me) earn money through
our work. If we retain more of that money we earned because
our taxes are lower, we can invest that money in business activ-
ity. If the government gets more of the money we earned be:.
cause taxes are higher, heaven only knows where it will be
spent.
So now that Democrats are in charge, what will this mean
for the American people with respect to tax policy? I don't
think that the Democrat majority can wipe out the Bush tax cuts
particularly in the Senate where it takes 60 votes to pass some-
thing like this. Besides since these tax cuts are set to expire in
2010, all they need do is be patient and allow them to die. Of
course, Republicans will be reminding voters in 2008 what this
will mean to their pocket book.
All tax policy originates in the House of Representatives by
the Constitution (Article I, Section 7: "all bills for raising rev-
enue shall originate in the House of Representatives") which
means that the key player is Charles Rangel, chairman of the
House Ways and Means Committee. High on Congressman
Rangel's list of taxes to address is the Alternative Minimum Tax
or AMT. Originated in 1969 the AMT was meant to snare high-
income taxpayers who might otherwise be able to write off their
taxes, but the geniuses who devised this idea failed to index it
for inflation, so now AMT is snaring more and more middle
class taxpayers. Republicans might join Democrats in getting
rid of this pesky tax, but the rub will be how to pay for it. Un-
der newly enacted "pay-go" rules, Congress is saying that no
tax will be eliminated unless the lost revenues can be offset by
some new revenue. It will be interesting to watch this debate.
Republicans have long sought to eliminate the Estate or
Death Tax; Democrats of course oppose eliminating what they
like to call "the Paris Hilton tax." But there might be room to
compromise and reach a bi-partisan solution that would elimi-
nate the tax burden on relatively small estates, say $5 million
for an individual and $10 million for a couple. While this might
seem like a huge estate, it will serve to protect a lot of small
businesses and family farms, allowing these families to operate
beyond the current generation. Many Democrats will probably
agree with Republicans that such a goal is good policy.
These are matters that you, as informed citizens, need to
keep an eye upon and an ear to the ground. Pay particular at-
tention to the House Ways and Means Committee and Chairman
Rangel. Don't lose sight of two things: trust a politician about
as far as you can throw him; and you are a better steward of
your resources than the government.

the Florida Medicaid program out of more than $17,000. Deborah
Rowe Tompkins was arrested in Georgia after investigators with
the Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit determined
that she had fraudulently billed the Medicaid program.
Tompkins, 54, is the former owner and administrator of Ed's
House, a long-term residential group home located in Port St. Lu-
cie. The investigation revealed that Tompkins, originally of Ft.
Pierce, was fraudulently billing the Medicaid program for habili-
tation therapy, supervision and specific training activities intend-
ed to help patients acquire, maintain or improve skills related to
daily living. The billing occurred on days the residents were not
at the facility and therefore could not have possibly received the
services for which Tompkins billed.

McCollum: Duval County
Attorney General Bill McCollum announced on February 1
that the ring leader of a Duval County cocaine trafficking opera-
tion was convicted today for running cocaine throughout Florida,
Georgia and Texas. A Duval County jury found Glenn Schofield
guilty in a case prosecuted by the Attorney General's Office of
Statewide Prosecution.
Schofield, 32, was the leader of the cocaine trafficking ring,
which investigators believe ran approximately 10 kilograms of
cocaine into Jacksonville every week for at least six months. The
cocaine was distributed to dealers who then sold the drugs
throughout the city. A joint investigation conducted by the Office
of Statewide Prosecution and the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office re-
sulted in the seizure of more than 20 kilograms of cocaine, worth
more than $200,000, as well as over $200,000 in cash. The six-
month investigation involved the use of wire taps, surveillance
and multiple search warrants. Schofield and two co-conspirators
were arrested in December 2005.


"When our Medicaid program is defrauded, our citizens are
often deprived of essential medical care," McCollum said. "We
will continue to fight fraud and protect those who need this care
the most."
Investigators estimate that the improper billing took place be-
tween July 2003 and January 2005. Tompkins then sold the group
home and moved to Douglas, Georgia. The arrest was made last
night by Georgia law enforcement officers. The group home has
since closed and its residents have moved to different facilities.
Tompkins is being held at the Coffee County jail in Georgia,
awaiting extradition to St. Lucie County. She is charged with one
count of organized fraud and one count of grand theft, both third-
degree felonies. If convicted, she faces up to ten years in prison
and a $10,000 fine. The case will be prosecuted by the Nineteenth
Circuit State Attorney's Office.

Drug Trafficker Convicted
"This massive illegal drug operation endangered countless
Floridians," said McCollum. "I am pleased the jury made the ap-
propriate decisions regarding this man who had no regard for the
laws of our society nor for the safety of our communities."
The jury found Schofield, of Jacksonville, guilty of one count
of trafficking in cocaine, 400 grams or more, and one count of
conspiracy to traffic in cocaine, 400 grams or more, both first-de-
gree felonies. Because of his extensive criminal record, Schofield
was declared a habitual offender and could face life in prison
when he is sentenced at a later date.
Co-defendants Daryl Schofield, 29, and Cedrik Alford, 41,
were each charged with one count of trafficking in cocaine, 400
grams or more, and conspiracy to traffic in cocaine, 400 grams or
more, both first-degree felonies. Both men pled guilty to the
charges at an earlier date and are currently awaiting sentencing.
Their cases were also prosecuted by the Office of Statewide Pros-
ecution.

AROUND MADISON COUNTY'


The Tradition Continues...

Madison To Observe President's Day NuLI Il$


A community remembers
the work of Ruth A. Wood-
well, and her influence, on pa-
triotic observances.
Who 'could forget Wood-
well's "The Dawn of Free-
dom" skit about the early pa-
triots of 1776? That pageant,
in 1937, was held in Confed-
erate Memorial Park.
Year after year, from 1912
to about 1939 or 1940, Miss
Woodwell secured sponsor-
ship for one time and ongoing
events, such as May Fate. Be-
ginning in 1927, the Madison
Court House was the backdrop
to a Christmas festival, which
included a reposed Holy
Child.
Edwin B. Browning, Sr.,
wrote these words about Miss
Woodwell:
All of us are heirs to her
great influence and owe Miss
Woodwell a well and deep
debt of gratitude for her in-
struction and the power of her
cultural background. This is
indeed a legacy to all.
Noting her as a symbol of
influence, Sara Copeland and
Elmer Spear, of Elmer's Ge-
nealogy Library, look over
materials on and about Miss
Woodwell. And they remi-
nisce about other Madison
leaders of the past.

And to Friends of History

This is the short list. A special
mention should be made of
Mildred White, a native of
Madison, but now of Jack-
sonville Beach, Florida. Mil-
dred rescued Ruth from a piti-
ful situation, and Ruth was
then allowed to be accorded
the love of a grateful commu-
nity, that had been enriched by
her presence. Thank you, Mil-

This year, Madison tradi-

Miss Woodwell, will be re-

the Executive Director of the
Taylor County Chamber of
Commerce.
The "Fireside Chats" in-
troduce Rotary from its very
beginnings in Chicago on Feb-
ruary 23, 1905, and include
talks on "what to expect from
Rotary" and "what Rotary ex-
pects from its members."
There are 1, 209,000 Ro-
tarian's in 168 countries. Ro-
tary is truly an international
organization of women and
men working to better the
lives of people throughout the
world. Thanks to Rotary In-

world's most dreaded disease,
has been nearly eradicated by
Rotary's program of vaccina-

A club guest for this im-
pressive meeting was Brent
Whitman, a civil engineer and
guest of Rotarian Jim Catron.
On January 31, 2007, Ro-
tarian Tim Ressler brought
Scott Gaedtke, Director of
RESPECT of Florida ,to in-
form Rotarians of the good
work his organization is do-
ing. RESPECT exists to fa-
cilitate the placement of indi-
\vidnals with lianhilitie in


competitive employment, us-
ing all methods of employ-
ment and training to achieve
that end. Individuals with
disabilities are enabled by RE-
SPECT of Florida to achieve
self-determined competitive
employment.
RESPECT rang up $24-
million in sales last year
which included $4-million in


sales of goods and products.
The Idea behind RE-
SPECT is simple: state and lo-
cal government agencies pur-
chase products and services
they need, thus employing cit-
izens with disabilities. Under
this program, individuals be-
come productive members of
society, creating well-round-
ed, fulfilled citizens. Both

Present a Valentine
That's "You"
Romance is still a big part of the day, of course. The difference is that now
there are cards for every conceivable stage of a relationship, from those
who are just flirting, to new couples, to those who are deeply committed
and in love. Today's relationships are far removed from quaint little Cupid
and his bow and arrow; now cards paint a much more authentic picture of
real-life relationships. The artwork and messages are as diverse as the peo-
ple who send them.
Are you a romantic who wants to express your deepest emotions?
Romance will never go out of style. This year, heartfelt, romantic cards are
as diverse as the people sending them. For instance, one of American
Greetings' new cards says, "Hands are meant to be held. Lips are meant to
be kissed. Words are meant to be spoken. Dreams are meant to come true.
You and I are meant for each other." If your style is short and sweet, you
might opt instead for one that pictures raffle tickets on the front, and says:
"I won the prize, Happy Valentine's Day."
Are you in a new relationship? You could select a card in the nontradi-
tional color of Tiffany blue with a heart composed of brown velvet dots
with the simple words: "You're my boyfriend. I love saying that."
Looking for a slightly sultry card as a prelude to a romantic evening
at home? American Greetings offers one that reads: "My husband. My hot-
tie. Be mine ... today, tonight, 'til the end of time. Love you."
To make the most impact, take a few minutes to write a personal mes-
sage. If you're having trouble getting started, consider these tips:
* Don't get too hung up on how to say it. This is a love note for the most
romantic day
of the year. Express how you feel in a way that sounds natural and right
for you, and.
it will be wonderful.
" Start by making fun lists:
Things you love about
your valentine, like "your
hot, passionate kisses" or
"what a wonderful father
you are to our children"
Things the two of you
love doing together
f Private jokes, nicknames
or code words
Favorite memories start-
ing with how you met
E Don't stop after finding just
the right card and declaring
your feelings inside. Get cre- ,&
ative with the presentation.
The unexpected surprise of
discovering a card in a brief- '
case or the special delivery
of a valentine with a single
red rose on the bed pillow is
sure to delight.
Valentine's Day isn't just for couples.
There are selections for family and
friends and even cards that joke
about being single.

Valentine's Day Entertainment ideas
Okay, so now you've found the perfect card and personalized it with a ro-
mantic message. What's next? Consider the way you celebrate as well.
"Whether you're cooking a romantic dinner for two or planning an infor-'
mal girls' night in for your single friends, today it's all about expressing your
own style and adding your own creative touches," said Sandra Lee, life and
style expert, New York Times best-selling author and "Semi-Homemade"
Food Network star. "Here are some quick and easy ideas that will make the
celebration extra special."
An Enchanted Evening for Two
* Place a valentine with an invitation inside on their pillow the night be-.
fore, or send an e-vite to work.
* Greet them with their favorite cocktail.
* Set an intimate red-and-white table for two with lots of chocolates and
play romantic music.
* Serve a small-effort meal with a big impact like fillet mignon topped
with blue cheese, a salad and steamed green beans (even if you have to
order it in because of time or culinary constraints).
* For the big finish, feed each other a sensual dessert like white and dark
chocolate-covered cherries or strawberries or maybe a rum raspberry
trifle served in a champagne flute or merlot glass.

Valentine's Day

Experts Offer Tips on

Expressing Love, Your Style
FAMILY FEATURES
Cleveland, Ohio We live in an age when the Internet and mass
media provide access to the latest trends at the click of a mouse or
the touch of a remote. As a result, people want their homes, their
fashions and even their holiday celebrations to reflect their individ-
ual style and personality. Luckily, this Valentine's Day there are
more ways than ever to say "I love you" with creativity and flair.
There's good news for the unattached, too. Valentine's Day used to be
the most dreaded day of the year for those who were not part of a couple.
Social changes, like women marrying later, have been helped along by the
influence of fictional icons like "Bridget Jones" and "Carrie Bradshaw." In
today's world, being single no longer relegates women to second-class sta-
tus. In fact, many women use the occasion as an excuse to celebrate their
friendships with a girls' night dinner party.
American Greetings offers special cards for singles, ranging from irrev-
erent anti-Valentine's Day messages to sincere expressions of friendship.
"True friends nurture the spirit and revitalize the soul," says one card. An-
other downplays the perceived seriousness of the day with the words:
"Happy Feb. 14th" on the front. Inside, the message continues: "Oh, and
have a nice Valentine's Day."
"From the turn of the century all the way through
the '40s and '50s, Valentine's Day remained a pretty traditional romantic
holiday," said Nicole Fraser, senior creative consultant at American Greet-
ings, "It was all
about cards with cupids, flowers and rhyming verses
and presenting those big, heart-shaped boxes of chocolates. However, be-
ginning in the '60s, people began to think of Valentine's Day as a day to ex-
press love to anyone important in their lives. Over the years, that trend has
continued, and today, nearly 40 percent of all valentines are sent to other
family members and friends.
"Exchanging school valentines has also become
an American tradition. For most children, decorating Valentine's Day shoe-
boxes or paper bags and signing
and delivering valentines to classmates will be one of
the first times they will express their appreciation to others with a card."

TAx TIME

Taxpayers Have Until

April 17 To File And Pay
Taxpayers across the nation will have until Tuesday, April 17,
2007, to file their 2006 returns and pay any taxes due, the Internal
Revenue Service announced today.
Taxpayers will have extra time to file and pay because April 15
falls on a Sunday in 2007, and the following day, Monday, April 16,
is Emancipation Day, a legal holiday in the District of Columbia.
"This year, taxpayers have additional time to file and pay be-
yond the traditional April 15 deadline," said IRS Commissioner
Mark W. Everson. "As we always do, we encourage taxpayers to
get an early start on their taxes to make sure they have plenty of
time. to accurately prepare their return."
This means the entire country has an April 17 deadline. Previ-
ously, the April 17 deadline applied just to individuals in the Dis-
trict of Columbia and six eastern states who are served by an IRS
processing facility in Massachusetts, where Patriots Day will be ob-
served on April 16.
The April 17, 2007 deadline will apply to any of the following:
2006 federal individual income tax returns, whether filed
electronically or on paper.
Requests for an automatic six-month tax-filing extension,
whether submitted electronically or on Form 4868.
Tax year 2006 balance due payments, whether made elec-
tronically (direct debit or credit card) or by check.
Tax-year 2006 contributions to a Roth or traditional IRA.
Individual estimated tax payments for the first quarter of
2007, whether made electronically or by check.
Individual refund claims for tax year 2003, where the regu-
lar three-year statute of limitations is expiring.
Other tax-filing and payment requirements affected by this
change are described in IRS Publication, 509, Tax Calendars for
2007, available on this Web site.
Most taxpayers will not have to change their plans in response
to this announcement. Three out of four individual filers get re-
funds. Typically, returns claiming refunds are filed early in the tax
season.
By law, filing and payment deadlines that fall on a Saturday,
Sunday or legal holiday are timely satisfied if met on the next busi-
ness day. Under a federal statute enacted decades ago, holidays ob-
served in the District of Columbia have impact nationwide on tax
issues, not just in D.C. Under recently-enacted city legislation,
April 16 is a holiday in the District of Columbia. Officials recently
became aware of the intersection of the national filing day and the
local observance of the new Emancipation Day holiday after most
forms and publications for the current tax filing season went to
print.
Even with the extra time, taxpayers can skip the last-minute
rush and avoid needless mistakes by filing early, taking advantage
of the speed and convenience of electronic filing, choosing direct
deposit for any refunds and paying any taxes due by direct debit or
credit card. IRS.gov has further details on electronic filing and pay-
ment options arid links to ;companies providing these services.

Z m i Know Family History To


Prevent Heart Disease


Preventing heart disease is easier than treatingit, so knowing
your family history may add years to your life.
Talk about your medical history with your family and relay
that information to your doctor, say cardiologists at Baylor Col-
lege of Medicine (BCM) in Houston.
"Some people are just born with a genetic disadvantage, but
that doesn't mean we can't do things to prevent progression of the
disease," says Dr. Ildiko Agoston, assistant professor of medicine
at BCM. "Knowledge of the risk factors should help prevent heart
disease, .since so much is out of our hands."
In addition to a strong family history of heart disease, other
risk factors include high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity,
diabetes, high triglyceride level and smoking.
Treating and recognizing symptoms early on is important,
said Agoston, who is also director of the Women's Center for
Comprehensive Care at BCM. More young people are being di-
agnosed with high blood pressure, and in most cases it can be
treated with a few, simple lifestyle changes.
Losing weight by exercising and living a more active lifestyle
contribute to better heart health, but in some cases that is not
enough.
."In severe cases with high blood pressure we prescribe med-
icine even to young people," said Agoston. "But we hope with
diet and exercise they won't have to be on them the rest of their
lives."
By sharing your family's history of heart disease, your cardi-


ologist or primary care physician can assess your disease risk, dis-
cuss lifestyle changes with you and run tests to determine the
severity of your risk factors.

SPORTS


Many players, try so hard to keep their heads down during
their swings that they end up tucking their chins against their
chests. Tucking your head down leads to hunching your upper
back, whicht eventually leads to slouching one of the biggest
killers of a good swing. Slouching makes a full turn and a free
swing almost impossible.

Class At MCHS Participates In Community Service


By Ashley Bell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
For passing the FCAT, stu-
dents at Madison County High
School are able to attend an en-
richment class, second period,
of their choice. One of those
classes is Blueprint for Profes-.
sional Success. Taught by Mrs.
Monteze Walker, students par-
ticipate in activities such as
community service, analyzing
their weak and strong points,
group activities that teaches
them to work as a team, sur-
veys, and other projects.


The students completed
safety training for elementary
students before this past Christ-
mas. They conducted fire safe-
ty, with the Madison Fire De-
partment, at Madison County
Central School, "Stranger Dan-
ger" at Lee Elementary, and
bus safety at Pinetta Elemen-
tary. They also cleaned up the
Skate Park at Lanier Field. The
students presented their results
and experiences to a panel of
judges from the community.
"This project helped them
to learn the managing and deci-

sion making skills needed to
complete the FCCLA Planning
Process" says Mrs. Walker
about her students.
The class surveyed par-
ents, administration, students,
and government officials con-
cerning the needs in the com-
munity. From their survey, the
students separated into groups
and chose one of the needs to
focus on. Two or more times a
month the students do their
community service to better
our town. During class they
evaluate their last community
service and plan and prepare
for the next time and make nec-
essary changes to successfully
complete their projects.
The groups are named the
"Cool Kids" (CK), Motivator,
Crabs, and Support, Coopera-
tion, Respect, Agreement,
Teamwork, Completion, and
Helping (S.C.R.A.T.C.H.).
Each team wrote a Disney
"Minnie" grant for community
service. The monies acquired
through the grant will go to-
wards helping high school stu-
dent' teai,, elementary st~-
dents the value of community
service. They will receive the
results in March.

Madison Academy Inducts



New Beta Club Members


By Emerald Kinsley
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madison Academy held an induction service for its new Ju-
nior Beta Club members on Wednesday, January 24, at 8: 30
a.m. The service was held in the school's gym and was open to
parents, relatives, friends, and school students.
The program was opened with The Pledge of Allegiance, a
prayer, and with the Beta Club officers reciting thoughts and
pledges of new and "old" Beta Club members. The new mem-
bers were then initiated and given their certificate of acceptance.
The new members initiated into the Madison Academy Ju-
nior Beta Club were: Saba Akbar, Daryl Frith, Logan Groover,
Garrett Holman, Brooke Kinsley, Brooke Love, Kailee Morris,
Mikayla Plain, Rachael Webb, Joshua Williams, and Joshua
Wood.


The Madison Academy Junior Beta Club is an integral part
of The National Junior Beta Club and is governed by the same
rules and policies. The membership is made up of sixth, seventh
and eighth grade students. In: order to be inducted into the Beta
Club, a student must have an overall grade point average of 92%
in the previous grade and a 92% grade point average for the first
two six weeks of the current grade. To remain a member, a stu-
dent must maintain a 90% grade point average and have no
grade below a "B" each semester. Each student must also main-
tain an "S" in citizenship at the end of each semester.
The 2006-2007 Madison'Academy Beta Club officers are:
President Abigail Blanton;. Vice President Taylor Money;
Secretary Kasey Odom; Treasurer Alaina Pickels; and His-
torian Lindsey Pinkard. I

College Goal Sun-
day is a national event
focused on assisting
students and their par-
ents to complete the
FAFSA form.
The three NFCC
sites are located so that


students only have to
drive a few miles to get _. .'
the help they need in
filling out the forms. S T
In Madison, the site is IST
the Student Success
Center in the middle of
the NFCC campus. The
high schools are the
sites in Jefferson and
Hamilton counties.,
Nancy McClellan,
NFCC coordinator for
the local College Goal Sunday, reports that people have been
trained to offer quick, confidential and caring help to anyone
needing it. Coordinators also remind students and parents to
bring: Social Security Number or parents' SSN; driver's license
number; Alien Registration Number if you are not a U.S. citi-
zen; 2006 federal tax return or tax information if you have not
yet filed; records of untaxed income, savings and business in-
formation if you are providing parent information. If all the in-
formation is not available, still come to one of the workshops
and get started on the process. The FAFSA form and instructions
are also on the internet at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
There will be 40 sites set up in Florida to help students ac-
cess the millions of dollars available in student aid. According
to organizers, often the barrier to getting aid is the FAFSA form
which confuses and discourages students and parents. College
Goal Sunday hopes to double the numbers applying this year.
McClellan also noted that more volunteers are need. To sign
up, contact McClellan at 850-973-1661 or email Mcclel-
lanN@ nfcc.edu.

Betty learned about the
shitake mushroom at a work-
shop in Tallahassee, sponsored
by Florida A&M University.
The workshop showed farm-
ers how to diversify, so they
wouldn't go bankrupt. Betty
was one of five participants.
Betty said that shitake
mushrooms are very tasty,
even tastier than portabella
mushrooms.
"They're packed with
minerals and are supposed to
help lower your cholesterol
and blood pressure," she said.
"They're also high in antioxi-
dants."
Despite growing the shi-
take, the O'Tooles have two
greenhouses bursting to the
seams with herbs.
"An herb is a multi-use
plant," Jim said. "It's either
good for you, tastes good,
smells good or works in a
medicinal manner."
Showing the ingenuity of
her earlier forebears, Betty has
recycled four buildings, which
had been set for demolition,
on her farm. One of the build-
ings serves as the home she
and Jim live in.
Two of the buildings
house the farm's store and gift
shop. Visitors come by and
many of them end up sitting
on the porch with Jim and Bet-
ty, having made friends for life

O'Toole's Herb Farm is
certified with the Florida Or-
ganic Growers. The O'Tooles
employ two full-time employ-
ees and two part-time employ-
ees.
Each year, they put on an
herbal festival, known as the
"Just Because" festival. The
festival is held the first Satur-
day in February each year.
Hundreds of visitors go
the farm and enjoy the work-
shops and the vendors' booths.
Vendors range, from dairy
farms, which produce chemi-
cal-free milk and booth to


acupuncture and acupressu{e
therapists to other herb groj'
ers.
Jim and Betty will quickly
tell you that the farm is not
place to make hordes of ca.,
and get rich, but they enjoy tt
simpler way of life that it pri
vides.

Consider Benefits
Before Changing Jobs
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
If you are thinking of switching jobs especially in
mid-to-late career you'll want to pay careful attention to
the benefits offered by your new employer. At this stage
of your life, you've got a lot to protect.
For starters, you'll need to take a close look at your
new employer's retirement plan. If your new job comes
with a 401(k), find out when you'll be eligible to con-
tribute, if there's an employer match and if the match also
applies to "catch-up" contributions you can make after
age 50. You'll also want to find out if your new plan will
accept a rollover of your old 401(k). If it does, and if you
like the investment options that come with your new
plan, you may want to make this move.
In any case, if your new job does offer a 401(k), take
full advantage of it. Contribute as much as you can afford
and increase your contributions whenever you get a raise.
Look carefully at your investment options and spread
your money among them in a way that reflects your risk
tolerance, long-term goals and time horizon. And no mat-
ter how much you like your new job, don't "overload"
your 401(k) plan with company stock a downturn in
your employer's fortunes could drag its stock price down
for quite some time.
Of course, not all companies have 401(k) plans. If
your new employer offers a "defined benefit" plan the
traditional pension that pays benefits based on years of
service you'll want to ask a lot of questions about the
plan's solvency. As you may know, many pension plans
are currently underfunded or face other major problems.
If you are concerned about a potential new employer's
financial status, you might want to visit the company's
Web site and search under "investor information" for
documents such as the annual report and filings with the
Securities & Exchange Commission.

Beyond Retirement Plans
Your new employer's retirement plan isn't the only
benefit you'll need to evaluate when weighing a job offer.
You'll also want to consider the following:

Disability insurance Have you ever thought what
would happen to your family and your long-term finan-
cial goals if you became disabled and couldn't work?
Disability insurance can help protect you against this
risk. Some employers offer short-term disability cover-
age as an employee benefit. But if your former employer
offered disability insurance, and your prospective new
employer doesn't, you may have to purchase your own
coverage.
Life insurance Some employers also offer life
insurance as an employee benefit. Even if you are not
that far from retirement, life insurance can play an
important part in your financial strategy, so the presence
or absence of an employer-backed life insurance policy is
a factor you'll want to consider before taking a new job.

A new job may offer you more money and the
chance to do work that you will enjoy. But before you
make the move, take a close look at the benefits package
- it can play a big role in your comprehensive financial
strategy.
