Sonny Arnold Arrested


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison County
,|riff's Office arrested Son-
E Arnold on charges of cheat-
and grand theft on Thurs-
day afternoon, February 15.
The Sheriff's Office were
alerted a few months ago by
members of the First Baptist
Church in Madison that a
large amount of money was
missing from church accounts.
The Sheriff's Inv. Tina De-
Motsis and the State's Attor-
neys Office have been in-
volved in the case which cul-


minated in these arrests last
Thursday.
Arnold had served as the
church treasurer for the past
12-13 years.
The First Baptist Church's
Board of Deacons had filed a
complaint against Sonny
Arnold at the Madison County
Sheriff's Office on Monday
morning, August 28. The case
involves embezzlement of
some of the church's money.
In an earlier interview,
Clyde Larrabee, former pastor
of the First Baptist Church of
Madison, said that the


church's
finance
commit-
tee had
co n -
firmed
that
t h a t
$53,000
( mo re
or less)
of the
church's

funds had been embezzled. He
noted that the number was
presented to the church at a
business meeting on Sunday
evening, July 16.


According to one
source, the money taken
had come out of an account
set up in the memory of Ed-
win B. Browning, Sr., a
former member of the
church who had served for
years as' the Madison Coun-
ty School Superintendent.
The money was placed in
an account with stock in-
vested in Bank of America,
as well as high-grade utili-
ties stock. This account
was set up to allow mem-
bers of the church staff to
further their education.

By Ashley Bell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
February 8th was Alex J.
Hudson's 101st birthday. Mr.
Hudson had a private family
birthday dinner at the Lake
Park of Madison, where he is
a two-year resident.
Hudson was born on
February 8, 1906 and raised

northern Madison County. In
the late 20's, early 30's, Hud-
son became a deputy sheriff
for Gadsden County. Years


later, he had a mechanic shop

he retired from. In 1942, he
and his family moved to
Melbourne for his job, which
was to help build Cape
Canaveral.
After Hudson and his
family moved back to Madi-

ment and worked for Madi-
son County as a heavy-duty
equipment mechanic, work-


ing on diesel engines, etc. He

and he and his wife traveled
all over the United States and
Canada.
Hudson survives his late

and two sons. He has one sis-
ter, one brother, two sons,
and one daughter.
Hudson is known for his
kindness, determination, and
generosity. Every person
who has met him has walked
away truly blessed.

said.
"Once you've seen one of them, you've seen the other," Gary

Happy Birthday Time Is Here Again

For Special People In Our Life


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


Keep Up The Good Work Joe Boyles

Help! I am actually beginning to agree with much of what Joe Boyles writes. What should I do? Keep up the good work -
sometimes we need to be challenged-and sometimes we need to be encouraged (or discouraged).

Jim Catron



Thank You Mr. Ex-President Clinton


Every birthday is special for every one of the people we call
"family."
I failed to wish a happy birthday on February 2 to our lit-
tle "groundhog," Hunter Patrick Greene. Hunter was born in
Aiaea, Hawaii, Feb. 2, 1990, when his father, Harvey, was sta-
tioned at the Naval Base, and he and his family lived there.
Hunter turned a special 17 years old, and we are happy to
have him living in Madison County with us again. He had
moved to Largo with his father Harvey, Janice and family, a
year or so back, but he missed his friends and family still here
in Madison County, and at school, so returned to finish his edu-
cation, and live with his relatives at "home."
Happy Belated Birthday, Hunter.
The other special person in our family with a February
birthday is our daughter Emerald Elizabeth (Greene) Kinsley.
There's just something about a little girl. When the doctor
announces her arrival with a, "It's A Girl," dads turn to mush
and moms think of all the special times they'll share together

Such was the case in our lives when our baby girl, Emerald
Elizabeth Greene w'as boml Feb. 2 'I69.
The Husband and I were just as excited when our boys were
born - Thomas Harvey Greene, III, born Sept. 25, 1963; our
William Madison Greene, born May 21, 1965; and our Forest
Selman Greene, born Aug. 22, 1972, (deceased). They know
they are special, and will always be, our magnificent "Greene
boys." But, the day we found out we had our little girl, too, we
felt blessed that our family was now complete.
Daughters are always adored from the time you hear the an-
nouncement: "It's A Girl." The mere thought conjures up pink
dresses, hair bows, and baby dolls. Mommas think of matching
dresses, and daddies think of tender kisses.
Since our daughter will be turning "38" this year I ask my-
self, where have the years gone? It was just yesterday that she
was three, with her long blond hair and her goodnight kiss of "I
'wuve you,' Mommy and Daddy."
I ask myself, what will our daughter do on her birthday -
February 26th, next Monday?
She'll probably wake up and continue what she started the
day before. She'll maybe fold the clothes left in the dryer. She
may make up the bed she and her husband, Paul, slept in. She'll
come to work and continue her duties as Publisher of the news-
papers, and get everyone busy with the jobs they need to be do-
ing for the day, and week.
Knowing Paul and their precious girls, Cheltsie, 14, and
Brooke,'12, they'll probably take her out to dinner somewhere
special, and get her a gift. Then, later, Emerald may go home
and read a chapter in the novel she might have already begun.
Whatever she does, chances are it will involve something
that she has already started, and will involve continuing some-
thing new for her as well.
As I think about your life, daughter, Emerald, I want you to
know that you are the continuation of what was started long be-
fore you were born. That's just the way life is. It is passed from
one generation to the next.
Life is a series of connecting events a continuation, an-
other chapter, a sequel, if you will. However, you want to say
it...Life goes on.
I ask myself sometimes, Daughter Emerald, what is your
destiny? How will you fit into the next continuing cycle of life?
You already have become a valuable asset to your family, your
community, and to us, as you have already begun to pave your
way into history.
No one knows the whole answer to all the questions. You
will probably continue to accomplish more than your father and
I ever dreamed possible.
While your destiny has already included carrying on the
family line physically, part of your destiny will be simply to car-
ry out many of the traditions and activities started by your par-
ents....Tommy and Mary Ellen Greene.... and your grandpar-
ents, Buford and Lucile Selman, and Harvey and Cora Lee
Greene. What an awesome blessing!
You might remember the end of the Porky Pig cartoon we
used to read to you that said "That's all Folks!"
Well, daughter Emerald, your birth assured your parents
and grandparents that it's not over yet, for you are here to carry
on what we, your parents and your grandparents, and their par-
ents and their grandparents, began.
We are proud of you, and for all our readers out there --
Stay tuned!
"Nuff said.....Bye for now....See 'ya."


Dear Mr. Ex President Clinton:
I recently saw a bumper sticker that said, "Thank me, I vot-
ed for Clinton-Gore." So, I sat down and reflected on that, and
I am sending my "Thank you" for what you have done, specifi-
cally:
1. Thank you for introducing us to Jennifer Flowers, Paula
Jones, Monica Lewinsky, Dolly Kyle Browning, Kathleen Wil-
ley, and Juanita Broderick Did I leave anyone out?
2. Thank you for teaching my 8 year old about oral sex. I
had really planned to wait until he was a little older to discuss it
with him, but now he knows more about it than I did as a senior
in college.
3. Thank you for showing us that sexual harassment in the
work place (especially the White House) and on the job is OK,
and all you have to know is what the meaning of "it" is. It real-
ly is great to know that certain sexual acts are not sex, and one
person may have. sex while the other one does NOT have sex.
4. Thank you for reintroducing the concept of impeachment
to a new generation and demonstrating that the ridiculous plot of
the movie "Wag the Dog" could be plausible after all.
5. Thanks for making Jimmy Carter look competent, Gerald
Ford look graceful, Richard Nixon look honest, Lyndon Johnson
look truthful, and John Kennedy look moral.
6. Thank you for the 73 House and Senate witnesses who
have pled the 5th Amendment and 17 witnesses who have fled
the country to avoid testifying about Democratic campaign fund
raising.
7. Thank you, for the 19 charges, 8 convictions, and 4 im-
prisonment's from the Whitewater "mess" and the 55 criminal
charges and 32 criminal convictions (so far) in the other "Clin-
ton" scandals
8. Thanks also for reducing our military by half, "gutting"
much of our foreign policy, and flying all over the world on "va-
catibns" carefully disguised as necessary trips.
9. Thank you, also, for "finding" millions of dollars (I real-
ly didn't need it in the first place, and I can't think of a more de-
serving group of recipients for my hard-earned tax dollars) for
all of your globe-trotting. I understand you, the family and your
cronies have logged in more time aboard Air Force One than any
other administration.
10. Now that you've left the White House, thanks for the
140 pardons of convicted felons and indicted felons-in-exile.
We will love to have them rejoin society. (Not to.mention the
scores you pardoned while Governor of Arkansas)
11. Thanks also for removing the White House silverware.
I'm sure that Laura Bush didn't like the pattern anyway. Also,
enjoy the housewarming gifts you've received from your
"friends."
12. Thanks to you and your staff in the West Wing of the
White House for vandalizing and destroying government prop-
erty on the way out. I also appreciate removing all of that excess
weight
(China, silverware, linen, towels, ash trays, soap, pens,
magnetic compass, flight manuals, etc) out of Air Force 1. The
weight savings means burning less fuel, thus less tax dollars
spent on jet fuel. Thank you!
13. And finally, please ensure that Hillary enjoys the $8 mil-
lion dollar advance for her "tell-all" book and you, Bill, the $10
million advance for your memoirs. Who says crime doesn't pay!
14. The last and most important point thank you for forc-
ing Israel to let Mohammed Atta go free. Terrorist pilot Mo-
hammed Atta blew up a bus in Israel in 1986. The Israelis cap-
tured, tried and imprisoned him. As part of the Oslo agreement
with the Palestinians in 1993, Israel had to agree to release so-
called "political prisoners". However, the Israelis would not re-
lease any with blood on their hands. The American President at
the time, Bill Clinton, and his Secretary of State, Warren
Christopher, "insisted" that all prisoners be released. Thus Mo-
hammed Atta was freed
and eventually thanked the US by flying an airplane into
Tower One of the World Trade Center. This was reported by
many of the American TV networks at the time that the terror-
ists were first identified. It was censored in the US from all lat-
er reports. Why shouldn't Americans know the real truth?
What a guy!!

Please pass along a special thank you to Al Gore for "in-
venting" the Internet, without which I would not be able to send
this wonderful, factual e-mail.
AND THE REST OF THE STORY Hillary Rodham Clin-
ton, as a New York State Senator, now comes under the "Con-
gressional Retirement and Staffing Plan," which means that
even if she never gets reelected, she STILL receives her Con-
gressional salary until she dies. (Would it not be nice if all
Americans were pension eligible after only 4 years?)
If Bill outlives her, he then inherits HER salary until HE
dies. He is already getting his Presidential salary until he dies. If
Hillary outlives Bill, she also gets HIS salary until she dies.
Guess who pays for that?
WE DO!
It's common knowledge that in order for her to establish NY
residency, they purchased a million dollar-plus house in upscale
Chappaqua, New York. Makes sense. They are entitled to Secret
Service protection for life. Still makes sense.
Here is where it becomes interesting. Their mortgage pay-
ments hover at around $10,000 per month. BUT, an extra resi-
dence HAD to be built within the acreage to house the Secret r
Service agents.
The Clintons charge the Federal government $10,000
monthly rent for the use of that extra residence, which is just "
about equal to their mortgage payment. This means that we, the
taxpayers, are paying the Clinton's salary, mortgage, transporta-
tion, safety and security as w-ll'as the.salaries'for'their 1,2' an
staff and, this is all perfectly legal! , .. ,
When ishe runs for President will von vote for her?

Republicans Gather
Last Saturday night, the local Republican committee held a
fund raising dinner at the Kountry Kitchen restaurant. About 80
republicans and more than a few democrats gathered to raise
money for our hospital "pink ladies" auxiliary. At evening's
end a check for more than $2600 was presented to Frances
Sanders representing the pink ladies.
There was a time in Madison, say 120 years ago, when the
mere mention of republicans gathering would occasion a visit to
the hardware store in search for rope, tar and feathers, but we
live in a more tolerant age today and republican isn't nearly the
dirty word as it used to be.
The same could be said about Florida and the South in gen-
eral. When I was born in the late 1940s, democrats outnum-
bered republicans in Florida by 8 to 1. Today nearly sixty years
later, Florida politics are dominated by the Republican Party.
Our state representative Will Kendrick of Carrabelle spoke to
the audience about his recent transition from democrat to re-
publican.
Now in his final two-year term as our representative in Tal-
lahassee, Will felt that he would be more effective for the 10th
District as a republican. What I didn't hear him.say but is prob-
ably very true is that after six years in the Legislature, he found
himself voting more often with republicans than democrats, so
the switch was a natural affinity. Those "Gold Coast" liberal
Democrats are way out of step with North Florida conserva-
tives.
I think that is the real reason that over the last thirty years
or so, the South has changed allegiance from democrat to re-
publican. The conservative nature of the southern culture has
overridden traditional party loyalty as the Democratic Party has
progressively moved to the left. I know that was the case with
my Father who fretted over this trend throughout the 1960s. He
changed parties the day following the 1968 election. A year lat-
er, I turned 21 and followed my dad into the Republican Party.
I group the republicans of today into three conservative be-
lief structures: economic, security and social. These factions
are not mutually exclusive; in fact many republicans hold sound
positions in all three, but generally, one will predominate.
Economic conservatives believe in lower taxes. Let me ex-
plain it this way: income is earned through business-activity in'
the private sector. Government or the public sector doesn't earn
a dime. In order to obtain revenue, the government must tax the
private sector people and businesses. Economic conservatives
want to see as much money as possible retained in the private
sector to stimulate the economy, create jobs, and bring prosper-
ity to as many people as possible through natural means. In
contrast, when the public sector tries to stimulate the economy,
they use artificial mearis which are frequently inefficient and
sometimes downright corrupt.
An offshoot of conservative economics are those who be-
lieve in smaller government. They would like to see people be
more responsible for their own lives and less dependent on gov-
ernment programs. Their belief is reinforced with countless ex-
amples of how inefficient and wasteful the public sector is.
Security conservatives focus on matters such as national de-
fense, justice, and law enforcement. They see a lot of threats to
America and law-abiding citizens and think that a very impor-
tant part of the government's charter is to protect all of us from
those threats.
Social conservatives focus on more insidious threats to our
culture, families and life itself. Sanctity of life and strengthen-
ing traditional families are bedrock issues for the social conser-
vatives.
To rank and file Americans who hold any or all of these po-
sitions, the modern Democratic Party has little to offer. Try as
they might in these areas, democrat efforts are very transparent
and most informed Americans see through them quickly.
It is interesting to observe that seventy years ago when lib-
eralism began to.gain a foothold in America during the Great
Depression, the party of change and new ideas was represented
by the Democrats. Today, the shoe is on the other foot. The
party of change and reform is the Republican Party on big is-
sues like health care, entitlements, education, immigration, and
foreign policy. The Democrats answer is to continue the old
programs but spend more money hardly a winning formula.
Republicans understand how difficult it is to reform old,
outdated programs. Democrats understand how difficult it is to
demand the people give up more of the dollars they have
earned. It is an interesting tug of war.

Orlando Man 4

Title Frau
Attorney General Bill McCollum today announced an Orlan-
do man was convicted of organized fraud and title fraud for his
role in a titling scheme involving 20 Mack trucks. An Orange
County jury returned a guilty verdict today against Edward James
Utley in a case prosecuted by the Attorney General's Office of
Statewide Prosecution.
An investigation conducted by the Office of Statewide Pros-
ecution and the Florida Highway Patrol revealed that Utley, 71,
purchased 20 Mack trucks consisting only of the cab, frame rails,
front wheels and tires as surplus parts from a Texas company. He
worked with a local towing company owner to apply for towing.
and storage titles for the trucks, claiming they had been towed to

Tillis invited Deputy Rodriguez into his residence to show him
his new mobile home. Deputy Rodriguez observed several
weapons located in the home. Upon questioning, Tillis advised

weapons due to the injunction. Notification of this detail, was
confirmed with the serving Deputy Sal Esposito who stated he
:was advised. '; ,

the company's lot and the owners could not be located.
Titles were issued for seven of the salvage trucks before the
scheme was uncovered. Trucks rebuilt or assembled from pa ts
were titled in Kentucky and Oklahoma using fraudulently o -
tained titles. Utley admitted to authorities that he could sell e
trucks with new titles for almost twice as much as he would. e
able to profit from selling a truck titled as a rebuilt unit or one-
sembled from parts. i
Utley was charged with one count of organized fraud and to
counts of title fraud. He faces up to 15 years in prison at his s -
tencing hearing in March. The cases against Utley's three co-cop-
spirators have all been resolved. ,,


Apalachicola Woman Gets Nine Yearsi

In Elder Exploitation Case


Attorney General Bill McCollum today announced that a
Franklin County woman was sentenced to more than nine years in
prison after a jury convicted her of exploiting an elderly victim in
her care. Pearl I. Westmoreland was also found guilty of money
laundering and aggravated white collar crime in a case that was
investigated by the Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control
Unit. She was sentenced to 110 months in prison and must make
restitution of more than $218,000 to her victim's estate.
"This woman abused her position of trust and authority in the
worst way, stealing from an elderly victim who had placed his fi-
nances in her hands," said Attorney General McCollum. "He had
every right to expect that she would care for him, but instead she
used his assets to line her pockets."
Westmoreland, 79, was arrested in June 2005 after the Med-
icaid Fraud Control Unit initiated an investigation based on a
complaint about the victim's circumstances. The victim, a nursing
home resident who previously lived in a trailer park owned by
Westmoreland, had signed a document giving Westmoreland
power of attorney over his personal assets.
The investigation found that after the victim signed over his
power of attorney, Westmoreland transferred $200,000 of his as-
sets into accounts she controlled. She understated those assets
when applying for Medicaid benefits on his behalf, then used the
money for her own personal gain. Her actions defrauded Florida's


Medicaid program out of more than $61,000.
The case was jointly prosecuted by Attorney General's Office
and the State Attorney's Office for the Second Judicial Circuit.
Today's sentence was handed down by Second Judicial Circuit
Judge William L. Gary. Westmoreland must also reimburse the
state for the costs of investigation and prosecution

AROUND MADISON COUNTY


BRITTANy BE
By Ashley Bell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Brittany Bezick, daughter of Bob and Linda
Bezick, is a sophomore at Madison County High
School. Brittany has been growing her hair for three
years to donate to the Locks of Love Foundation.
Her mother, Linda, cut her hair, that measured
out to 12 inches, which will produce approximately
one wig. After cutting her hair. Brittany mailed her
locks to.the Locks of Love Foundation.
"It seems like a long time to grow out your hair
just to cut it off, but it's definitely worth it." says
Brittany.
Her inspiration to contribute to the foundation
came from her childhood friend who suffered from
cancer in the first grade and then again in the fourth
grade. She went through leukemia treatments and
began to loose her hair. Brittany felt the need to
help out other patients who have lost their hair, the
same way that some one else contributed to her
friend.
Locks of Love is a non-profit organization fo-
cused on replacing the confidence and normality of
under-age patients suffenng from Alopecia Areaia.

Doug Thompson asked his

Evening. He told her that he
was going to take her to a nice
restaurant in Thomasville to
eat.
Louella dressed up nicely
for the occasion, as she always

Doug had wired his moth-

Expecting Doug to drive
his Yukon SUV, imagine her
surprise when she opened her
door, and there stood a tall,
handsome man, who said,
"Madam, your limo is here."
Louella looked, and low and
behold, a long white limousine
was at her gate.
Louella was escorted into
the limo while Doug stood in
the yard, videoing the event.
.They had a memorable
evening, the best any mother
could hope for. Louella says
she has the most wonderful
son in the world.

Reshayla Jackson


Knows Her Presidents


An impromptu exam on
the Presidents was offered to
some middle and high schools
students, in honor of Presi-
dents Day, which was Febru-
ary 19.
Architillery Missionary
Baptist Church, of Cherry
Lake, was holding a workshop
on teens and their "Parents,
Friends and Peer Pressure."
Rev. Robert L. Holmes
kindly consented to letting his
young people "Name Those
Presidents!"
Of the 30 or so entries re-
turned, and keeping in mind
that no "studying" was al-
lowed, Reshayla Jackson
named 17 Presidents. While
that list of Presidents now to-
tals 43, how many could you
name off the top of your head?
Rev. Holmes' workshop
on teen problems continues
for another four months. Rev.
Holmes has been with Archit-
illery Church for over ten
years.
This is a Madison County
Health Department workshop.
Reshayla's parents are
Pamela Walker and Terrance
Jackson. She is a senior at
Madison County High School,
and is interested in getting into
the Criminal Justice field.
Reshayla has been greatly


influenced by two teachers,
Rhonda Moore, and Gregory
Ray.


The Presidents! How
many can you name? Take the
test!

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
All of us would like to think we will enjoy a com-
fortable retirement. If you're a woman, however, you
might be significantly more nervous than your male
peers about life as a retiree. This fear may not be entire-
ly justified, but, in any case, you can greatly improve
your outlook for retirement by understanding where
you, are now -and how to get where you want to go.
But first, you may have to overcome both fear and
a financial "gender gap." Consider these findings from
recent surveys conducted by Harris Interactive:
Forty-six percent of the women surveyed said they
worry about losing all their money and becoming desti-
tute. Surprisingly, this figure rises to 48 percent among
women with incomes of $100,000 or more.
Women were almost twice as likely as men to
worry about money and to doubt their capacity to invest
and plan for the future.
Only 10 percent of women said they feel quite
secure about theirfinances.
These figures, while disturbing, at least partially
reflect some basic realities of women's lives. First,
women typically outlive men by nearly seven years,
according to the U.S. National Center for Health
Statistics and more years of life mean more expenses.
Also, women drop out of the work force for an average
of 12 years to care for young children or aging parents,
according to the Older Women's League, a research and
advocacy group. This time away from the workforce
results in women accumulating much less money in
their employer-sponsored retirement plans.
Of course, if you are married, many of your finan-
cial assets are likely commingled with those of your
husband. But that doesn't mean that you can abdicate
responsibility for your financial future. Some 80 per-
cent to 90 percent of today's women will be solely
responsible for their own finances at some point in their
lives, according to the National Center for Women &
Retirement.
So, what can you do to boost your confidence in
your financial management skills? For starters, take a
close look at all potential sources of retirement income:
Social Security, savings, investments and retirement
plan distributions. Estimate about how much you might
have available for your retirement years.
Next, try to envision your "ideal" retirement
lifestyle and put a "price tag" on it. For example, if you
would like to continuously travel the world when you
retire, you're probably going to need more money from
your retirement funds than your neighbor who wants to
stay home, pursue hobbies and possibly even open a
small business.
It's not always easy to plan, save and invest for
retirement. That's why you may want to consider work-
ing with an experienced financial professional some-
one who knows your risk tolerance, time horizon and
long-term goals, and who can recommend the appropri-
ate investments and strategies.
Learn as much as you can about every aspect of
your financial situation. You'll boost your confidence
about having sufficient resources for retirement and
you'll probably enjoy it more when you get there.

Activities Spotlight Community-Wide Initiative
WHAT: Madison County will join communities across the
State of Florida in participating in a Job Shadow Day. This is a
nation-wide event that kicked off on Groundhog Day. Madison
County High School students will get an up-close look at how
the skills they learn in school are put into action in the work-
place. They will shadow a workplace mentor as he or she goes
through a normal day on the job.
WHEN: Madison County will hold their Job Shadow Day
on Tuesday, March 13th, 2007.
WHO: Employment Connections will be contacting local
businesses in the near. future to ask if they are interested in in-
vesting in a child's future by hosting a high school student for a
one day job shadow. If you are interested, please contact Mandy
at Employment Connections, (386) 364-7952 or toll free at

SHADOW DAY MEDIA ADVISORY
Why: Job shadowing is designed to give kids an opportuni-
ty to "shadow" an adult during their daily work activities. It in-
spires kids to be enthusiastic about their studies by showing
them the correlation between what they learn in school and how
it is used in the workplace. In 2006, more than one million
young people and 100,000 businesses participated.
Beginning with a nationwide kickoff on February 2, 2007,
Groundhog Job Shadow Day, and continuing throughout the
school year, Job Shadowing 2007 is sponsored by a coalition

REGIONAL HAPPENINGS


Phones And Driving


When it comes to someone driving while distracted, cell phones seem to get all the
bad press. And some of it is well-deserved.
Distractions and inattention while driving are estimated to cause 1.2 million crash-
es about 25 percent of all crashes on American roads. One estimate says cells
phones contribute to about 60,000 auto accidents a year in the United States.
But according to the February issue of Mayo Clinic Health Letter, other distrac-
tions are even more dangerous. Eating, looking at a map, reaching for something and
watching something outside your car, such as an accident scene, are some of the more
common distractions that are at least as likely, or more likely to lead to an auto ac-
cident.
What's the worst distraction? Reaching for a moving object inside the car, accord-
ing to a study on driver distractions published last year. Researchers equipped 100 cars
with a camera that filmed the driver and a sensor system that detected accidents or near
accidents. The cars were driven a cumulative distance of about 2 million miles by 241
different drivers. In that time, there were 82 crashes and 761 near crashes.


Researchers determined that reaching for a moving object in-
side the car increased the crash or near crash risk eight times.
Looking at something outside the car increased risk 3.7 times
Dialing a cell phone increased risk 2.8 times. Eating. reaching
for an object or talking on a cell phone increased risk 1.5 times.
Eliminating every distraction may not be feasible, but \ou
can minimize risk with these safe-driving tips:
Cage, leash or harness a pet before you travel.
If you must eat or drink, have a passenger hand Nou
items or arrange them within easy reach. ,
*Take time before you drive to adjust the seat.
mirrors, seat belt and radio.
Pull over when you talk on the cell phone. If
you must talk and drive, keep conversations brief ...
and have a passenger dial, and use a headset.


2006 Florida Tourism Visitation Numbers Released


:Governor Charlie Crist announced that the total num-
ber of tourists visiting Florida in 2006 increased by 1.2
percent compared to 2005 figures. From January 1 through
December 31, 2006, 84.6 million people visited Florida ac-
cording to preliminary data* released today by VISIT
FLORIDA, the state's official source for travel planning.
:"With our pristine beaches, magnificent sunshine,
woild-class theme parks and unparalleled natural beauty,
it's easy to see why Florida is a global tourism leader," said
Governor Charlie Crist. "In addition, Florida has a long
tradition of welcoming its visitors with hospitality and
warmth, making our great state the natural choice for fam-
ilies and vacationers from around the world."
;This slight increase in annual visitation comes on the
heels of a sharp decrease in tourism during the third quar-
ter of 2006 followed by flat tourism figures for the first six
months of 2006. "Though we are encouraged by the recent
increase in visitation, the tourism market in Florida is cur-
rently quite unstable," said Donna Ross, chairman of the
VISIT FLORIDA Board of Directors and CEO of the Flori-
da Attractions Association. "With a relatively flat market-
ing .budget, Florida is being outspent by other destinations


who are aggressively marketing to potential visitors."
Tourism is Florida's No. 1 industry, generating rev-
enues that provide funding to help build roads, support
schools and pay for other vital statewide programs. Cur-
rently, the Sunshine State lags behind Hawaii, Illinois,
Pennsylvania and Texas for public funding of tourism mar-
keting.
In 2005, it is estimated that Florida lost 1.6 percentage
points of the nation's overseas tourism market share. As
Florida's No. 2 source for international visitation, United
Kingdom visitor figures have been projected to have de-
creased nearly five percent in 2006. A one percent decrease
in Florida visitation represents a loss of approximately
$37.2 million in general revenue collections.
"Although visitation increased one percent in 2006, the
state depends on a visitation increase of four or five per-
cent each year to strengthen Florida's economic future,"
said Bud Nocera, president and CEO of VISIT FLORIDA.
With support from more than 80 statewide tourism
leaders, VISIT FLORIDA has launched the Partnership for
Florida's Tourism in order to raise awareness about the im-
portance of tourism marketing. The Partnership is asking


for an additional $34.3 million in public funds in order to
remain competitive in the tourism marketplace, offset the
rising'cost of advertising and help stabilize the currently
inconsistent tourism market. With an increase in public
funding, VISIT FLORIDA expects that visitation to Flori-
da will rise 2.7 percent during the 2008 calendar year,
generating more than $102 million in state sales tax rev-
enues.
VISIT FLORIDA reports that enplanements to Flori-
da's 14 largest airports showed a 0.7 percent increase over
2005 to almost 66.9 million enplanements. From entry-
level employees to top-level executives, 983,800 people
with a combined income of more than $16.3 billion are
employed statewide in the tourism field.
Research also revealed that fourth quarter (Oct.-Dec.)
2006 visits to Florida increased 9.5 percent compared to
the same quarter in 2005. The third quarter of 2006 re-
flected a visitor decrease of 2.1 percent over the same pe-
riod the previous year or a loss of 437,000 visitors.
*Preliminary estimates are issued 45 days after the
end of each calendar quarter. Final estimates are released'
when final data are received for all estimates in the report.
