Scam Alert

It's one of the latest breakthroughs in
telecommunications -- Voice Over Internet Pro-
tocol, or VoIP, which enables telephone calls
over the web.
And guess who's hopping on the VoIP
bandwagon along with millions of legitimate
customers? Criminals, that's who. They're us-
ing the technology to hijack identities and steal
money. It already has a name: "vishing."
New wine, old wineskins. Vishing is really
just a new take on an old scam-phishing. You
know the drill: you get an e-mail that claims to
be from your bank or credit card company ask-
ing you to update your account information and
passwords (perhaps, it says cleverly, because of
fraudulent activity) by clicking on a link to
what appears to be a legit website. Don't do it,
of course. It's just a ruse, nothing more than an
illegal identity theft collection system.
Vishing schemes are slightly different,
with a couple of variations.
In one version, you get the typical e-mail,
like a traditional phishing scam. But instead of
being directed to an Internet site, you're asked
to provide the information over the phone and
given a number to call. Those who call the

VIEWPOINTS & OPINIONS





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


To Communicate Is

The Beginning Of

Understanding
Dear Editor;
Recently I have been asked why I am no longer broadcast-
ing my weekly (Monday 1 to 3pm) "Oldies" show on WMAF,
hence this letter.
I am a professional radio broadcaster, being in the business
for well over 30 years. When my wife and I moved from Fort
Myers to Madison 13 years ago, after my retirement, I began my
association with WMAF in Madison. I have endeavored to en-
sure that the station maintain a semblance of professionalism.
All this at no cost to the station. I produced a weekly "oldies"
show from my home studio which was sent by a telephone line
to WMAF and was then broadcast over the air, still no cost to
WMAF.
On my last show, I reviewed Tommy Greene's "Florida
Cookin' Wild Style" book. The operator of WMAF sent me an
e-mail stating, "is Tommy Greene paying for the ad on his book?
They sure wouldn't give me a free ad. They would charge me
full price!" and I then e-mailed WMAF and said "It was good
PR (public relations). Radio Stations do it all the time. It is good
to have good relations with powerful people in Madison. Good
for the station and good for the community." We exchanged e-
mails and I reminded the operator of the approximately 30
minute interview that WMAF conducted via telephone with
Naomi Judd, promoting Judd's new book.
To make a long story short, the WMAF operator "FIRED"
me. The station carries a program Wednesday afternoons which
hosts Trailboss and his partner Tumbleweed. The show is inno-
vative, creative, entertaining and well produced.
Also, the programs produced by Rev. Oliver Bradley, who is
a real Southern gentleman, are well received and a benefit to the
community. In general the station is bland and boring. Running
the same computer generated songs over and over again. The op-
erator should strive to create more innovating programming, as
listeners prefer to team about our community, schools, safety, lo-
cal politics and events. The operator should be educated on FCC
Rules and Regulations. Madison deserves and should demand a
local radio station that truly serves the public interests, conve-
nience and necessities of the community.
I'm sorry my radio career has to end this way and as I would
always say at the end of my programs: "To communicate is the
-beginning of understanding." To my listeners, I say thank you
' ery much for yobr support. God bless all'and goodbye.

Respectfully,
Jim Jenkins


It Is Great To Live In Madison County!!


Dear Editor:
On Friday, February 16, we were again reminded how great
it is to live in Madison County. A fund raiser was held on the
courthouse lawn to raise money for Melanie Wieland, a young
lady who received serious injuries when she was kicked in the
head by a horse. Melanie is going to require extensive therapy,,
with travel to Gainesville 3 times a week for about a year. The
fact that Melanie is with us at all, is a miracle from God, and
this we believe is due to all your prayers.
On Friday, we witnessed a great outpouring of love, support
and compassion. People from all over Madison county as well
as visitors braved the coldest day of the year to come and sup-
port Melanie. Our original intent was to raise about $3000.00 to
help with Melanie's medical expenses. At the end of the day, we
had received over $7500.00 and donations are still coming in!
We actually ran out of food twice and had to make'several shop-
ping trips to keep up with the demand.
This event could not have taken place if not for the support
we received from our Christian brothers and sisters. People
from all denominations came together in fellowship and pitched
in to help. We received over 40 cakes from people that read
about our fund raiser request in the paper and had to turn down
other offers. To those of you that donated or offered to donate
cakes, we thank you. To those that offered to sell tickets, we

"We All Have
So, Jim Catron needs philosophical "help." (Letters from
the last Carrier.)
Well, Jim, since you asked. I would not presume, as did Mu-
rat Halstead (1829-1908), then a young reporter for the Cincin-
nati Commercial, to forward his opinion as to how to win the
War Between the States, as he did to Sec. of War, Edwin Stan-
ton*, but since you asked.
At an earlier time, I was Vice Chairman of the Maine Young
Democrats. I was even elected to the Legislature of New Hamp-
shire as a Democrat.
My politics has always been States' Rights and local con-
trol. That is, the Jeffersonian point of view.
Others have viewed a strong central government out of
Washington as the answer to local problems.
Let me show you, Jim,.that centralization, and the central-
izers, have not been good to the South. And Jim, I am sure that
thatshould be the underlying basis of your political philosophy.
The war ruined the south. Union armies had destroyed two-
thirds of the south assessed we two-fifths od tie livestock,
and one-quarter of the white men between the ages of twenty
and forty.


also thank you. A special thank you goes to the following Madi-
son county businesses, who donated goods for the event: Mike
Dowdy with Clover Farms Grocery, Tony and Sheila Aranda
with Food for Thought, David Bishop with Flowers Baking
Company, Bill Brown with Ken's Barbecue, Mc Donalds, Mary
Ann Wheeler and Ed Bagley with N.F.C.C., Ed Meggs with
Madison Community Bank, Chief Alfred Martin with Madison
Fire Department, and last but not least, Emerald Kinsley and Ja-
cob Bembry, with Greene Publishing, who promoted this event.
To the members of St. Vincent de Paul Catholic church, as
well as St. Margaret in Monticello, we want to thank you for
your generosity. You put in countless hours of hard work to
make this event a success. To the many other churches and con-
gregations who pitched in to help, you proved that we are all
brothers and sisters in Christ. To those of you that have sent in
donations, you have been, a blessing to Melanie and her family,
and we know that our Lord will bestow His blessings upon you.
We cannot possibly mention everyone of you that helped
without leaving someone out, there were so many. So we would
like to close by saying that every one of you have been an angel
to Melanie and her family, and we pray that the Lord will truly
bless each and everyone of you and your loved ones.
Sincerely,
Juan & Karen Botino

Shoes Now"
Northern wealth rose by 50 percent between 1860 and
1870; Southern wealth declined by 60 percent.
In 1860 the southern states possessed slightly less than one-
third of the nations wealth; by 1870 that share had declined by
12 percent.
Of the pork barrel dollars spent m these united States, from
1865-1866, the end of the War Between the States, and 1873,
virtually, the end of Reconstruction, the numbers reveal the real
bias against the South.
Official figures, from the Treasury Department, tell the sto-
ry. The Radical centralist Congress appropriated $ 103,294,501
(for 1866-1873) for all the States. The eleven Southern States,
and Kentucky, received only $9,469.363 of that amount.
Those Southern States received the equivalent of what the
three States of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont, received.
But it was the South that needed to be rebuilt! The South
was broke! .o:ainnni iub bi, :j
':: The big government bentralists'~ eiYfall 'ieart; They spent
the money on themselves; and gave the South the shaft!
And then the New Deal of the 1930's came, under F. D.
Roosevelt. It was ED.R., remember, that reminded the nation
that it was the South; it was the region, that was ill housed and
ill fed.
So did he treat the South any differently? Did he send the
big bucks down here? With all the millions he spent, the amount
of dollars the South received was equal to what the one State of
Pennsylvania received. Think of that!
FDR took the liberal big government spenders one step fur-
ther! He spent the money, and then, blamed the victims! "One
third of the Nation is "How's that for gull!
And his wife, Eleanor, continually berated the South in her
daily newspaper column, "My Day."
And who takes the cake? Frances Perkins, FDR's Secretary
of Labor, who had the gull to say, in 1933:. "A social revolution
would take place if shoes were put on the people of the South."
You are in the middle of that revolution, Jim. I came to re-
alize it, as well, and dropped the big government Democrats,
and re-registered as a Republican. The sky is just as blue, and
the people have shoes!
Jim, The horse the centralist big government people rode in
on is wood! The horse they flog is dead!
How do you stand, sir?
Sincerely,
Nelson A. Pryir
Lee, Florida
Interestingly enough, Halstead's Letter was found in the
files of the War Department. Endorsed by Sec. Stanton's own
hand, it had: "M. Halstead- Tells how the war ought to be car-
ried on" written thereon.

Support The Troops; Oppose The War


About 18 months ago, I addressed this subject but it is high
time to trot it out once more. For the past month or so, both
houses of the Democrat-controlled Congress have been fight-
ing over various resolutions and other measures to limit George
Bush's ability to act as commander-in-chief. On the surface,
these efforts are directed at limiting his ability to surge an ad-
ditional 21,500 combat troops to assist the Iraqis with pacify-
ing Baghdad neighborhoods. However, the underlying current
with the mainstream of the Democrat Party is encapsulated in
this position: we support the troops but oppose (Bush's) war.
I understand the mindset of the "troops." For 31 years, I
was one of those troops including a stint in Southeast Asia dur-
ing the last combat year (1972) of the Vietnam War. So here is
the perspective of the troops: the most important thing that the
American people can "give" the troops is their full support and
encouragement to successfully accomplish the mission. In oth-
er words, the idea that you can support the troops but oppose
(their mission) the war is something akin to an oxymoron.
Let me give you a couple of examples to show you how
ridiculous this line of reasoning can be. I'm all for the Gators
but hope they lose to Tennessee. I support my church but have
serious doubts about Christianity. I support my bank but I re-
ally don't want them to make any profit. I support my spouse
but my marriage is a shambles. I love my pets provided I don't
have to feed or clean up after them.
I could go on and on, but by now, you should understand
the relationship between something and its purpose you can't
have one without the other. You cannot support the troops
while at the same time undermine their ability to accomplish
the mission.

Daily I hear pandering politicians invoking their concern
about the 'safety' of the troops. How amateurish; what they
need to be concerned with is how to help the troops be suc-
cessful. The people who need to be concerned with the safety
of the troops are their tactical commanders and sergeant majors
at company, battalion, and regimental level. I'm willing to bet
that 99 percent of these politicians who are so concerned with
the safety of the troops have never served a day in the military
and can't distinguish a salute from a friendly wave. When it
comes to the military, they are clueless pretenders.
The latest ploy to tie the hands of the military comes from
Senator Joe Biden (the smartest guy in the world just ask


him). What Senator Biden wants to do is permit our soldiers
and marines in Iraq to accomplish certain missions ... and
nothing more. So if you are a commander in Iraq and a com-
bat situation arises, you have to call for a legal ruling if there is
any question whether or not the problem falls within the con-
fines of Biden's legislation. One thing that really gets under
my skin is busy-bodies like Biden who try to micromanage
every action.
Just so. you know who we are talking about, Senator Biden
is something of a political institution, having served the people
of Delaware in the United States Senate for 34 years. He first
took office in 1973 having just turned 30. He has never served
a day in the military but is a candidate (again) for the presi-
dency. Joe Biden is a professional politician, pure and simple
who loves the sound of his own voice.
Don't you find it just a little hypocritical and disingenuous
that the same Senate that last month unanimously confirmed
General David Petraeus to be our new commander in Iraq is
now busy tying his hands?
Some say that the Democrats are actively seeking our de-
feat in Iraq. That is difficult for me to accept. What I do be-
lieve is that the Democrats are convinced that we have lost the
war and are pulling out all the stops to hasten our departure and
eventual defeat.
Listen, I am just as frustrated with this war as the next guy,
particularly with the sectarian violence. We ... I certainly did-
n't expect that when we began this phase of the war against ter-
rorism four years ago, but regardless, that is the situation we
find ourselves in today. We owe it to our troops, and most es-
pecially those who have paid the dearest price, to give the new
Bush-Petraeus plan a fair opportunity to succeed or fail. If it
doesn't work, we should know by late summer and can scale
back our operations knowing we tried our best. If it does work
... and early indications appear to be positive, then we may
have succeeded in accomplishing something very significant.
In closing, I would like to ask you to role-play with me for
just a moment imagine that you are a soldier serving in Iraq.
Think about how much better you would feel if you knew that
the entire country, including both political parties. werejpuiling
for you to succeed, to be victorious. I'm heartsick that today
we don't have that type of unity and commitment. I served in
Vietnam and the pattern is all too familiar to me.

SCAM ALERT cont from page 1]


"customer service" number (a VoIP account, not a real financial
institution) are led through a series of voice-prompted menus
that ask for account numbers, passwords, and other critical in-
formation.
In another version, you're contacted over the phone in-
stead of by e-mail. The call could either be a "live" person or a
recorded message directing you to take action to protect your
account. Often, the criminal already has some personal infor-
mation on you, including your account or credit card numbers.
That can create a false sense of security. The call came from a
VoIP account as well.
Vishing, as you might imagine from these scams, has some
advantages over traditional phishing tricks. First, VoIP service is
fairly inexpensive, especially for long distance, making it cheap
to make fake calls. Second, because it's web-based, criminals
can use software programs to create phony automated customer
service lines.


Want to Achieve Financial Goals?
Do the Math
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
If you breathed a sigh of relief when you put away
that algebra or geometry textbook for the last time, you
might not be eager to take up the subject of math again.
However, by doing some number crunching, you can
put a "price tag" on your long-term financial goals and
that's the first step toward achieving them .
; To quantify the costs of your objectives, you must
be specific about what you're trying to accomplish. Do
you want to retire as soon as you possibly can and then
spend your time traveling the world? Or are you plan-
ning to work until 65 and then open your own small
business? Obviously, these are vastly different goals -
with vastly different costs to you.
Once you know what you really want to do when
you retire, you should be able to project your annual
yearly expenses. Then, you can ask yourself these ques-
tions:
How many years will I spend in retirement? None
of us can predict exactly how long we will live. But if
you consider your overall health, your lifestyle habits
and your family's history of longevity, you can come up
with a reasonable estimate of how many years you
might have to pay for in retirement.
Where will my income come from? To pay for your
retirement goals, you'll likely need to draw on all types
of income available to you, including Social Security
and your investments, such as your IRA, 401(k) and
whatever individual stocks and other securities you may
own. To help reach the level of income you'll require,
you will need to monitor all these investments over the
years, and make changes as needed.
Calculating Costs of Other Goals
Achieving the "ideal" retirement might be your
biggest financial goal, but it's almost certainly not the
only one. But no matter what goals you have, you'll still
need to "do the math" necessary to calculate costs and
arrive at solutions.
So, for example, if you'd like to help pay for college
for your children (or grandchildren), you'll need to look
at what college costs today, how much it's likely to cost
in the future and how much money you can devote to
paying those costs.
To illustrate: For the 2006-2007 school year, it
costs, on average, $16,357 for students attending four-
year public colleges and universities, according to the
College Board. If college costs were to rise five percent
every year, today's newborns can expect to pay about
$162,000 for four years at a public school.
With the presence of scholarships, loans and work-
study arrangements, you might not have to foot the
entire $162,000 bill. But at least you'll know what you
might need and you can start planning the appropriate
savings and investment strategies.
And you can take this same approach to other long-
term goals, such as buying a second home or a new
business. Keep in mind, though, that "doing the math"
can involve a lot of variables, so you may well want to
consult with a financial advisor someone with the
tools and experience to help you chart your course
toward your goals.
But don't wait too long the sooner you start plan-
ning, the more pleasant "the math" will be for you.

But if the thieves are giving out their phone numbers, they
should be easy to track, right? Wrong. Criminals can mask the
number they are calling from, thwarting caller ID. And in some
cases, the VoIP number belongs to a legitimate subscriber whose
service is being hacked.
.So how prevalent is vishing? Hard to say, due to reporting
difficulties. "A lot of would-be victims are reporting this as
SPAM or phishing," says Dan Larkin, chief of the FBI's Cyber
Initiative and Resource Fusion Unit. "But we know it's out
there. It's happening."
Don't let it happen to you. Larkin recommends greeting a
phone call or e-mail seeking personal information with a healthy

dose of skepticism. If you think the call is legit, you can always
hang up and call back using the customer service number pro-
vided by the financial institution when the account was opened.
And please contact [ the Internet Crime Complaint Center]
www.ic3. gov if you think you were either a vishing victim or re-
ceived a suspicious call or e-mail.

Kelley Reunion Held At 4
The children of the late
Pennywell and Ora Lee Kel-
ley of Live Oak held a family
reunion on Saturday, February
3, 2007 at the Selph Farms in
-Hamilton County. The event
-,'-t i was hosted by the family of
the late Cleveland Selph, Sr.
of Jennings, Florida.
Approximately 68 direct
descendants of the Pennywell-
Kelley family were in atten-
dance and enjoyed a day of
reminiscencing old times,
food, fun, and fellowship. An
outdoor barbeque consisting
of roasted pork, chicken and
"Selph Farms'" sausage, along
with all the trimmings and
desserts, was served.
Despite the cold weather,
it was an exciting day for the
j' ..... young and old at heart.


Selph
Grandchildren and great
grandchildren enjoyed meet-
ing new cousins, climbing
and swinging from the big
oak trees, playing tag around
the fishponds, touring the
Selph Hog Farm, and holding
the baby pigs. The day ended
with a bonfire, soccer game,
and shared memories of the
"good old days."
The sentiments of the


Farms
family were best expressed in
Sunday School the next day
by Marlee and Logan Kelley.
"We are thankful for the
family reunion and hope we
can have one every year,"
they said. Marlee and Logan
are the twin daughters of
Greg .and Chris Kelley of
Spring Creek, and grand-
daughters of Wes and Janice
Kelley of Madison.

(NAPSI)-There's a lot to like about love and it's easier
than you might imagine to add a little romance to your life.
Sometimes all it takes is a tiny gesture to spark the magic of
love. Here are some romantic tips your sweetheart will love:
Find a four-leaf clover and present it together with this
note: "I got lucky when I found you."
*Maake a habit of taking a stroll after dinner every evening
and start holding hands again the way you did when you first
met.
Bring flowers home for no reason or bring home one
flower a day for one solid month.
Music and love poems can also help you speak the eternal
language of love and romance. Good examples of this are the
timeless lessons and everyday truths from the most romantic
book of the Bible. Happily, these are now complemented with Play' On If music be the
an extraordinary musical score, bringing this first-ever drama- language of love, there's a CD
tization of the Old Testament's Song of Solomon to life with a that will help you embark on a
masterful blend of sensuous narration and musical imagery. lifelong journey of love and
Handpicked word for word from six different translations intimacy.
of the Bible, "The Original Love Song" captures the charm and
poetic flow of the old-world vernacular while stirring your emotions with intimate inflection. Each and
everyverse is then complemented with its own superbly crafted musical composition, tastefully weav-
ing the most famous love poems of all time into a compelling, theatrieal-style story:
Although the initial and apparent benefits are wholesome, romantic thoughts, the real value comes
with a much deeper understanding and far greater insight into what the Bible says about intimate be-
havior, desire and virtue.
Conceived initially as a must-have wedding CD for all young couples about to embark on a life-
long journey of love and intimacy, the authentic interpretation of "The Original Love Song" also sings
true for noted Christian scholars. Their wholehearted recommendations help confirm "The Original
Love Song" as an excellent resource CD, making it the only reference of its kind for marriage min-
istries and church libraries.
Should you be looking for a wedding gift, something special for an anniversary or simply a ro-
mantic gift for someone you love, it's not hard to express your affection with "The Original Love
Song." If you listen closely, you can't help but hear the language of love.

(NAPSI)-Buying wedding
gifts is no longer a seasonal en-
deavor--ceremonies take place
in December, September and
April, as well as June. In fact,
October is almost as popular as
June, with May following close
behind.. December is now the
most popular month for engage-
ments, with September and Au-
gust tied for second place.
But whatever month cou-
ples choose to tie the knot or an-
nounce impending nuptials, one
thing remains constant: Ninety-
five percent of brides who regis-
ter list their first gift preference
as cookware and bakeware, ac-
cording to a recent Cond6 Nast
Bridal Group survey. Cook-
ware/bakeware tops a list of
popular registry items such as
appliances, stemware, casual
dinnerware, flatware and fine
china.
For example, a top-selling
bridal registry item that never


seems to go out of style is Corn-
ingWare French White
stoneware. The enduring fluted
stoneware collection is popular
in every shape, from ramekins to
casserole dishes and mixing
bowls.
Sixty-five percent of new-
lyweds expect to prepare meals
at home and have friends over,
entertaining as often as twice a
week. The beautiful bakeware
and serveware collection can be
a bride's (or groom's) best friend
when it comes to one-dish bak-
ing and serving. The collection
recently added a three-bowl set
that can cover a variety of mix-
ing, cooking and serving needs.
Classic bakeware is not
only a practical gift, but one
newlyweds can use to prepare
many shared romantic meals.
Here's a dish for two that's
perfect for a romantic dinner but
can also be multiplied for a for-
mal dinner with guests:

Wonderful Wedding Getaways


(NAPSM)-If you're like
many brides, you've vowed to
make your wedding ari event
like no other. For a number of
couples, that means tying their
big day into a romantic getaway
and holding their wedding in a
luxurious, personal or exotic
setting.
One particular destination,
Kissimmee-St. Cloud in Central
Florida has been discovered by
brides the world over for having
a wide range of options.
Whether choosing the conve-
nience of an all-inclusive wed-
ding package offered by a re-
sort, or a one-of-a-kind affair
arranged in a boutique wedding
chapel, the area has planners
waiting to help brides create
their fantasy.
The elaborate Gaylord
Palms Resort and the intimate
Celebration Hotel offer full
wedding packages and extra
perks for couples. Celebration's
chef, for example, will create
delicious dishes to mark the
event.
Couples who golf may en-
joy the Omni Orlando Resort at
ChampionsGate, where they
can hold a garden party under a
sun-drenched sky or an indoor
service with an expansive view
of the manicured golf course.
At the Radisson Resort
Parkway, beaming brides stroll
over bridges surrounded by lush
landscaping. The hotel lets cou-
ples arrange weddings of all
sizes-from intimate two-person
affairs to huge gatherings.
Couples can also exchange
vows outdoors at Kissimmee
Lakefront Park or in cozy
chapels, such as the'Little White
Wedding Chapel, the Chapel of
Dreams and the Victorian Wed-
ding Chapel. In addition, ser-
vices can be planned at the his-
toric, classically beautiful Osce-


ola County Courthouse and at
the Wonderland Inn Bed &
Breakfast.
Receptions can be held at
several local Kissimmee's
restaurants, such as' the popular
Signature by the Lake. Wherev-
er the party might be, Euro Cafe
and Bakery can provide a cake
to sweeten the deal. Couples
can attend Medieval Times and
Arabian Nights, where horse-
drawn carriages set a romantic
and playful mood. Newlyweds
can even share their first post-
wedding kiss at sunrise in a hot-


air balloon.
Then it's on to the honey-
moon!
Kissimmee-St. Cloud is a
convenient neighbor of world-
famous theme parks that keep
the magic going. Couples out
for adventure can also see na-
tive animals from an airboat,
hike or bird-watch in area parks
and preserves, canoe the Central
Florida waterways or ride hors-
es across the wilderness trails.

O, ChUF To Research Stem Cell

Treatments For Heart Disease


And Bulies

Children with obsessive-compulsive disorder are three
times more likely to be bullied than other children, and the
name-slinging could cause symptoms of OCD to worsen, Uni-
versity of Florida researchers have found.
"One of the things we have noticed working with many
kids with OCD is that peer relations are extremely impaired,"
said.Eric Storch, Ph.D, a UF assistant. professor of psychiatry
and pediatrics and lead author of the study. "Kids target kids
who are different. Kids with OCD sometimes exhibit behav-.
iors that peers simply don't understand."
More than one-quarter of the children with OCD who re-
searchers studied reported chronic bullying as a problem, ac-
cording to findings described in the September issue of the
Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology.
By comparison, only 9 percent of kids in the two other
groups researchers studied healthy kids without medical or
mental conditions and children with type 1 diabetes reported
serious problems with bullies.
Nearly all children are bullied at least once in their lives.
But chronic bullying equates to about one taunt per day, rang-
ing from kicking or hitting to name-calling or excluding chil-
dren from activities in school.
"The kids with OCD are really experiencing higher rates
of peer problems than other kids," Storch said. "We're not say-
ing one causes the other, but there is a positive relationship be-
tween (OCD and bullying)."
About one in 100 children struggle with OCD, an anxiety
disorder that leads people to engage in rituals such as hand
washing to drive awv a\ obsessive thoughts about germs Or oth-
er worries. Rituals often become so involved that they inter-
fere with a person's ability to function, according to the Na-
tional Institute of Mental Health.
"Their da) becomes filled with repeating behaviors,"
Storch said. "For a lot of kids, peers don't understand what is
going on. They are isolated. They are ostracized because it
doesn't make sense hy they are washing their hands. Why
they keep repeating questions."
The researchers also found links between bullying and
hther problEmrs, name Ibn'ine'lm arid'depreN don, ih"childrerf
with OCD. Storch said. Kids were also apt to internalize bul-
lies' negative comments, telling themselves, "No one will ever
love me," or "Maybe I am a loser," Storch said.
Having OCD and conditions such as depression is linked
to worsening obsessi ve-compulsive symptoms, potentially ex-
plaining why researchers also found a link between bullying
and more serious symptoms.
"It could be that the peers are attacking because they are
doing things that are so different," he said. "Or it might be that
bullying is in some nway contributing to OCD."
Compulsive behaviors such as repeating questions, re-
counting and rechecking information can draw attention to
kids with OCD in school, as can vocal or physical tics, com-
mon among children with OCD, said Phoebe Moore, Ph.D., an
assistant clinical professor of child psychiatry at Duke Uni-
versity.
"That kind of behavior can draw fire," Moore said. "1 def-
initely see that cliically."
Treating OCD either with approved drugs or behavior
modification techniques will help patients control their obses-
sions and compulsions. Storch said. But he emphasizes that
doctors need to exarmne the whole child and not just treat
OCD symptoms.
"When one focuses solely on the obsessions and compul-
sions you experience a resolution of those problems, but prob-
lems like depression or anxiety and loneliness may still exist,"
he said. "If you address the OCD without addressing the peer
problems, that depression and loneliness may not go away."
Storch suggests parents help children learn how to handle
aggressive peers, either at home or by finding a counselor who
can help them develop social skills. Parents should also take
their concerns to their child's school if teachers or administra-
tors are not stopping the bullying before it becomes a problem.
"Bullying is one of the largest challenges kids, with OCD
and in general. have to face," he said. "One of the main clini-
cal implications is considering the child as an entire person,
one who has OCD but who also has other impairments."


University of Florida re-
searchers will play a key role in
a new national network de-
signed to study stem cell treat-
ments in patients with cardio-
vascular disease.
As part of a five-member
consortium known as the Car-
diovascular Cell Therapy Re-
search Network, UF scientists
will seek to identify and test
new cell therapies to improve
the structure and function of
the heart and its blood vessels.
The network and its projects
will be supported by a grant
from the National Heart, Lung
and Blood Institute that is ex-
pected to total $33.7 million
over the next five years. Ap-
proximately $5 million will be
disbursed in 2007.
The centers will begin.
meeting immediately to select
protocols and then screen pa-
tients for possible entry into
multiple research trials in car-
diovascular regenerative medi-
cine set to launch early this
year. The collaboration will en-
able study investigators to
rapidly boost sample sizes and
expedite studies that otherwise
would likely take many years
to complete. At least 10 studies
are planned during the funding
period.
The other centers are the
Cleveland Clinic, the Texas
Heart Institute, the University
of Minnesota and Vanderbilt
University. The network's data
coordinating center will be
based -at the University..of
Texas Health Science Center in
Houston; the NHLBI project
office is in Bethesda, Md.
"Most of.us believe that
some form of regenerative
medicine will be the future for
treatment of cardiovascular
disease, that it will be the next
level of care," said Carl J.
Pepine, M.D., a professor and
chief of cardiovascular medi-
cine at UF's College of Medi-
cine and the principal investi-
gator and center director for the
UF site.
Researchers will focus on
adults with coronary artery dis-
ease, congestive heart failure
or other conditions, including
diabetes, that reduce blood
flow to the heart, damaging
heart muscles and hampering
its ability to function properly.
As a result, the quality of life of
many of these patients be-
comes very poor, as they are
progressively unable to partici-
pate in their usual day-to-day
activities.
"These will be patients
who have already had medical
therapy, bypass surgery, angio-
plasty, stents, or other treat-
ment options and have not re-
sponded to those treatments,"
Pepine said. "The current
thinking is we have a limited
capacity to repair our hearts

and blood vessels but that is
somehow defective in people
who have end-stage disease.
Our hope is that by providing
new cells we may be able to re-
store the reparative process."
Network scientists met last
week to discuss the initial
study protocols they'll pursue
from a pool of 10 submitted
during the grant application
process. Studies will test
whether various cell therapies
can improve the heart's plumb-
ing by helping to repair blood
vessels or form new ones and
strengthen the heart muscle to
improve its ability to pump ef-
ficiently.
"In the United States we
have had difficulty amassing
the numbers of patients and
also bringing together the mul-
tiple disciplines required to
perform stem cell therapy at
one table to be able to have
large enough trials to prove the
worthiness of cell therapy in
cardiovascular diseases," said
Chris Cogle, M.D., an assistant
professor of medicine at UF's
College of Medicine who has
expertise in stem cells and
bone marrow transplantation.
"This is the raison d'etre
of the network, to amass the re-
sources, bring the necessary
people to the table, and recruit
patients who need this help to
be able to complete these trials
and answer whether or not cell
therapy can help prevent heart
disease or-protect patients who
have it. ,. ,. .,
"We may have new op-
tions for patients whose cardi-
ologists might have told them
there's nothing else they can
do," he said.
Projects likely will involve
the use of stem cells obtained
from a patient's own bone mar-
row or peripheral veins-or even
from the heart itself-and will
incorporate new strategies for
cell delivery to the heart and
techniques for screening and
localizing transplanted cells. In
some studies the cells may be
treated to enhance their func-
tion before they are returned to
the body. For example, UF in-
vestigators have found that ex-


posing these cells to nitric ox-
ide, low oxygen levels, low
temperatures or even gene
therapy enhances their ability
to restore function in animal
models. Methods of delivering
the cells to the blood vessels or
directly into scarred heart mus-
cle also will be tested.
UF scientists also have
proposed one study that in-
volves extracting skeletal mus-
cle cells from the thigh in pa-
tients with severe heart failure
who are awaiting heart trans-
plantation. The cells would be
multiplied in tissue culture and
then implanted directly into the
same patient's heart. The goal
would be to determine whether
the cells can strengthen a very
weakened heart and determine
how long the cells survive, said
Daniel Pauly, M.D., Ph.D., an
associate professor of medicine
and director of the division of
cardiovascular medicine's
molecular cardiology and ge-
netics section at UF's College
of Medicine.
Researchers will include
experts in various disciplines,
such as hematology, nephrolo-
gy, radiology, stem cell biolo-
gy, cardiovascular medicine,
pediatric cardiology, and car-
diothoracic surgery. In addi-
tion to Pepine, Cogle, and
Pauly, they include nephrolo-


gist Mark Segal, M.D., Ph.D.;
pediatric cardiologist Barry'
Byrne, M.D., Ph.D.; endocri-
nologist Maria Grant, M.D.;

HEALTH & NUT'RIT'ION


Moms Score An "A" On Their


Nutrition Report Card


When it comes to kids and nutrition, there
are three burning issues on every mom's mind -
- keeping their kids active, feeding them nutri-
tious meals that they like, and making the most
out of each day by finding smart shortcuts to get
it all done.
According to a recent survey of 1,000 U.S.
moms sponsored by Ragu pasta sauce, almost all
moms (94 percent) admit they know the nutri-
tional needs of their children but 80 percent say
they face challenges in satisfying those needs.
What are the biggest challenges? Forty-two per-
cent of moms say fussy eaters and 38 percent say
busy schedules.
"With so little time between work and school.and after-
school activities, it's about smart, simple solutions that allow
you to still give your family the very best you can," notes Today
Show fitness correspondent, author and mother of three, Kathy
Kaehler.
Kaehler says, "It's a balance of nutrition and exercise. Fam-
ilies need to be more active and can do so together. If you're al-
ways on the couch, your kids will follow suit."
Kaehler offers the following tips for moms:
Incorporate exercise into your family's daily routine by
creating a "Family Fitness Chart." Keep the chart in a high traf-
fic area of your home, and have everyone check off activities as
they are completed (such as one minute of jump rope, 25 jump-
ing jacks, running around the house two times). Challenge fam-
ily members to complete the most activities at the end of one
week or one month and offer rewards.
If getting your kids to eat veggies is sometimes challeng-
ing, look for new and interesting ways to serve those vegetables
you know they'll eat. If broccoli is the only vegetable your child
likes, figuring out more ways to serve it will help keep them

f From March 1st through March 10th women can bring a bag
of non-perishable food items to your local Curves and join with
nlo service fee. All groceries collected will be donated to Con-
solidated Christian Ministries, for distribution to families in
Madison County. This will be the first food drive for Curves of
Madison County, who opened its doors on June 12, 2006.
Judi Wyche opened Curves last summer to bring a fun, fast
aid safe way for the women in Madison County to get in shape.
She started as a member in Perry and lost 32 inches and 16
pounds in just six months,'working out 4 times per week. Since
opening in June, our membership has lost 834 pounds and 3,118
inches for a total of 3,952 inches and pounds lost.
Our mission is "strengthening women." We have so many of
our members who have committed themselves to regular exer-
cise reaping the benefits of a healthy life style. We have reports
of women getting back into their smaller size clothes and doing
things physically that they had been unable to do because of lack
of strength. Several of our members have lost up to four dress
sizes since we opened our doors.
Curves is a 30-minute fitness and weight loss center that uti-
lizes hydraulic equipment (resistance training). Our machines
are designed for safety, simplicity, and effectiveness. The hy-
draulic resistance lets you push or pull harder rather than adjust
complicated weights. The result is an effective strength training
method that reduces soreness and the potential for injury. Add
the cardio exercise and the result is a routine that's simple to
start, effective enough to get fast results, and challenging
enough to stick to.
Vista Insurance now pays the membership fee for new and
existing members.
In order to join Curves with this promotion, call 973-4700
to schedule an appointment. Then bring an 8 Ib. bag of non-per-
ishable groceries to your appointment to get started.
Curves is located at 249 SW Range Avenue, Suite A, Madi-

from getting bored of it! For example, one-half cup
of Ragu pasta sauce equals a full serving of vegeta-
e bles...and what kid doesn't like pasta sauce? So find
ways to get it into their diet instead of just adding it
to spaghetti (even though they probably wouldn't
_i_ mind having spaghetti every night!) You can serve
it over shaped pasta, use it as a dip for string cheese
(a great snack!), or mix it with ground turkey or
beef for a quick sloppy joe.
Encourage balanced meals by making your
child "Chef for a Day" by letting them help make
dinner. They choose the menu, help shop for the in-
6 gredients and help with the preparation. For menu
ideas check out the Ragu Soccer Mom's Shortcuts
Book available on www.ragu.com. It offers simple recipe and
snack ideas your family can cook together with items every
mom has in their pantry or refrigerator.
Don't forget to keep your kids (and yourself) active, even
when the weather prevents you from going outdoors. Some fun
ideas to keep you arid your kids active indoors include tumbling
with summersaults, hand stands and cartwheels or a scavenger
hunt with active clues like crawling or skipping to the next lo-
cation.

ilies can do together visit Kathy's Ultimate Fit Kids Web site at

Tips or


T hting The flu

The main way that illnesses like colds and flu are spread is
from person to person in respiratory droplets of coughs and
sneezes.
In a nutshell, you can fight the flu bug if you take care to:
Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
Clean your hands often.
*Remind your children to practice healthy habits also.

FCCLA Holds District II Rally


Madison and Branford FCCLA Chapters are pictured with their FCCLA sign that was placed on the Courthouse lawn in honor of National FCCLA Week (Photo Submitted)


By Ashley Bell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Family, Career and Community, Leaders of America
(FCCLA) held a district II rally at First United Methodist
Church on Friday, February 16th. The rally consisted of mini
workshops for members of the Madison and Branford FCCLA
Chapters.
The Master of Ceremonies was Samantha Hall, Kristen
Campbell did the Pledge, and Michelle Morgan sang the Na-
tional Anthem.
Samantha Hall, President of FCCLA and Vice President of
Recreation for Florida, did a presentation on Master the Pow-
er, which was a workshop on public speaking.


Mrs. Robin Smith, District II Advisor conducted an activ-
ity on this year's FCCLA National Spotlight, which is Relay
for Life. Her members made luminary bags and discussed the
significance of Relay for Life and it's purpose.
Laney Dowdy, 2007 District II Chairman, did a workshop
on nutrition, consuming healthier snacks, and exercising.
Wilhelm Wieland, the local Chapter Parliamentarian, did a
presentation on the Ultimate Leadership experience.
Laurie Smith, State President Elect, did a workshop on
S.T.O.P. (Students Taking On Prevention) the Violence with an
emphasis on bullying.
Ariel Blanton, 2007 State Officer Candidate for District II
and local President Elect, along with two of Branford's mem-


bers, did a presentation on the state target, which is "Get on
Board and Be Active in Your Community."
After the mini workshops concluded, the Attendees, Offi-
cers, and Advisors, walked to the Courthouse in honor of the
state project "The Student Body," and the state target "Follow
the Map Towards a Healthier You." The FCCLA members also
took a group picture, in front of the FCCLA sign placed on the
Courthouse lawn, honoring National FCCLA Week.
Both the Madison and the Branford chapters donated to
the National FCCLA scholarship fund. This scholarship is
awarded to one senior member of FCCLA each year who is in-
terested in pursuing a career in Family and Consumer Sci-
ences.

Si. "I had my first drafting job while I was still in the program
at NFCC," said Alan Hidy of Cherry Lake.
"My drafting training was very good," said Angela Howell
of Tampa. "During job interviews, it was clear that I was better
prepared than other candidates." The experiences of Hidy and
Howell are typical of NFCC drafting grads.
They illustrate the program's high level of instruction and
the continuing demand for drafting graduates.
According to instructor, Lauri Newton of Petry, "Our draft-
ing program has been a springboard for graduates like Angela
*. and--an: W.ith a so i-drafting foundation, they can readily
Sadapt their skills to the workplace in the real world."
S Hidy, ho graduated in 2003 at the top of his class, works
as a Computer. Assisted Drawing (CAD) technician/operator
with ASA Engineering and Survey, Inc. of Valdosta, Ga. While
a student he had on the job training with a Tallahassee engineer-
ing firm, using his basic CAD training. With ASA, Hidy exe-
cutes site and infrastructure design for public and private pro-
jects. According to Hidy, the work requires a lot of problem
solving. Hidy is thinking about working toward a four-year de-
gree in engineering sometime in the future. Experienced CAD
technicians are earning $25,000 to $40,000 per year in the area,
according to Hidy.
Howell, a 2006 graduate, is working with a construction
Company in Tampa. She is vetting blueprints for commercial and
residential projects.
'"I'd rather be drawing," she said. "But, I have a few outside
projects that allow me to use my drafting training."
"I had been out of school three or four years, so I was ner-
vous about returning," said Howell. "The instructor (Lauri New-
ton) had a lot to do with my choosing NFCC. She was friendly
and made me feel my questions were important."
Howell reports there is a demand for mechanical drafters in
.the Tampa area and that entry level jobs pay up to $18,000/year.
Newton confirms the strength in the demand for skilled
drafters. "Construction along the coastal areas of Taylor County,
for instance, is generating local jobs at engineering, land sur-
veying and architectural firms."
"Businesses regularly contact NFCC for recommenda-
tions," said Newton. "I also tell my students to check online
search engines, like Monster.com, especially if they are planning
to relocate."
NFCC has had a drafting program since 1968. Hundreds
have earned certificates and work in local and surrounding areas.
t Several graduates have transferred to universities to earn engi-
.. neering or architecture degrees. Full-time and part-time classes
are available. It takes two-years to complete the program. Fi-
nancial aid may be available for qualified students.
For more information about NFCC drafting, contact Lauri
Newton, 973-1633, toll free 1-866-937-6322, or email new-
tonL@nfcc.edu. You can also visit www.nfcc.edu and search for

MADISON COUNTY SOLID WASTE AND RECYCLING

"WORKING SMARTER FOR BETTER RESULTS"
By Jerome Wyche

An unknown author once said, "Prior planning makes for
better results." This is the daily objective of the employees
assigned to the Solid Waste and Recycling Department.
Because we are determined to continue to provide the citizens
of Madison County with our best effort, the work plan changes
almost on a daily basis. The ability to have the foresight to
make immediate changes is a credit to a workforce that is the
epitome of a team... hence the term "Teamwork" comes into
full focus. Empowering employees to carry out their duties
through the delegation of authority is a sound managerial tool
that enables this department to work smarter, getting better
results. I entrust the workload within the boundaries of
Madison County and the weekly tasks that require completion
to Foreman, Clay Blair, and the Office Administrator, Sharon
Smith. Combining their efforts, and that of others, this upbeat
30-person department, including the Collection Site Attendees,
functions in a mode of high expectations. When our morning
meetings end at 7:00 AM daily, everyone has their assignment.
Although sometimes challenging, "We get the job done."
Madison County is beginning to show positive signs of
growth and expansion. The employees of this department have
long acknowledged that we must make preparations to handle
the business and population expansion that are poised to hap-
pen. Updating equipment and logical assignment of human
resources is key to preparation. In addition to equipment and
personnel usage, strategic use of real property is also a part of
the equation. Effective on or about February 28, 2007, the
Solid Waste and Recycling Department will be removing the
green collection containers located on Highway 53 North (Ty
Mus'sy), Highway 146 (Little Cat Road) and Flowers Road, as
well as the containers on Highway 146 (Little Cat Road) and
Pickle Lane. Two (2) 30 cubic yard containers will be placed
at Highway 146 (Little Cat Road) and Pickle Lane as the cen-
tral collection and disposal location. The reduction of green
collection containers along the roadways in Madison County is
one of the goals of this department. Placement of the large con-
tainers at Highway 146 (Little Cat Road) and Pickle Lane will
offer greater collection capacity to our citizens.
As the Coordinator for Solid Waste and Recycling, I do
understand that this will be a deviation from the norm, when
disposing of your household waste and other materials. For
those that reside in the affected area, impacted by the change,
I solicit your assistance and cooperation in helping to make
this a smooth transition. Careful thought and objective plan-
ning are the basis for the change. After use of the central col-
lection location, I am hopeful that you will recognize the ben-
efit of this decision. To ease the feelings of anxieties, daily
monitoring and maintenance of the central collection site will
be a prioritized function of this department.
In other areas throughout the county, I am pleased to report
that Madison County is relatively clean, compared to other sur-
rounding counties. There is a noticeable increase in refuse
along some of our secondary highways and roadways. On sev-
eral occasions, citizens have alerted this department of uncar-
ing passersby disposing of household waste along roadsides.
County Ordinance No. 96-73, 'Madison County Clean
Community Ordinance, prohibits such actions "Violators of
the ordinance shall be prosecuted in the Madison County
Court. Upon conviction of a violation hereof, the violator shall
be punished by a fine up to $1,000 but not less than $300 or
imprisonment in the Madison County Jail for a period of up to
one (1) year in jail or both."
Protecting the environment is everyone's responsibility.
Keeping Madison County clean and appealing is a matter of
choice and pride. I think that we are different compared to
other cities and towns because it shows. My hat is off to The
Madison County Correctional Institute. The Correctional
Officers that supervise the state inmates, impacting our county


cleanliness deserves a round of applause. It requires a concert-
ed effort on all our behalf. As you make your way across the
winding roads of our county, give some thought to not throw-
ing trash out of your vehicle. Your actions will truly be appre-
ciated.
