By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A Madison man was ar-
rested for enticing a 12-year-
old girl to expose herself to
him and to have sex with him.
According to.a Madison
Police Department report, on
multiple occasions, Anthony
Conswayne Wright made lewd
comments to the girl, asking
her to expose body parts to
him. When this did not work,
he enticed her to have sexual
intercourse with him by offer-
ing her different items.
According to the report,
the last time Wright solicited
the 12-year-old to have sex
with him, she became upset
and ran out of the house to find
a relative.
On another occasion,
Wright was observed by the
victim, looking into the bath-
room window, while she was
taking a bath.
On March 29, Wright-was
arrested at the Madison Coun-
ty Jail by Inv. Nathan Curtis
and charged with solicitation
of a child under 18 to engage
in an act, which constitutes
sexual battery, by a person in
familial or custodial authority.

Madison

County E.M.S.

No Longer

Transporting

Non-

Emergency

Stretcher

Patients

By Juan Botino
EMS Director
Due to government regula-
tions, Madison County E.M.S.
can no longer transport non-
emergency stretcher patients that
do not meet Medicare or Medic-
aid criteria.
Madison County E.M.S. has
always transported bedridden pa-
tients back to their residences or
nursing homes when they were
discharged from the hospitals. We
received a call in February from
the Medicaid office stating that
our provider number would be re-
voked if we continued this prac-
tice. We were told that Big Bend
Transit is supposed to contract
this service with non-emergency
stretcher providers. Big Bend also
provides wheelchair transporta-
tion. There were two workshops
conducted at the request of Com-
missioner Ronnie Moore during
the month of March, to try and
find a solution to this problem. All
the nursing homes, Madison

Commanding Officer Enjoys Home Town News On The Web


Carrier Staff:
I was especially pleased once I found that the Carrier was
being posted on the web via greenepublishing.com. I am always
excited to go to the website to read about the current events in
Madison. The people of Madison County are the greatest. It is
always a pleasure to hear what is happening. I applaud your ef-
forts in providing the information to all Soldiers, Sailors, Air-
man, and Marines who either permanently reside in Madison or
whose roots began in Madison.
I ask, that if there is a way possible that the specific web
links provided on the web can be updated more often. Occa-
sionally, some of the articles may be two to three weeks past.
Granted, the servicemen and women around the world do get to
speak with their families occasionally. Some more often than
others. But, the Carrier is the best way to transmit information
to people like me who are definitely concerned with Madison


County.
International, national and state news media is good, how-
ever; you can not beat a Home Town news outlet. Your folks do
a great job and I sincerely appreciate their efforts. I would just
like to see the most up-to-date and current information as pos-
sible. Your website is the only way to keep up with the happen-
ings of Madison. Having said that, I thank you for what is avail-
able and the efforts of your staff. As a concerned citizen, I de-
sire to keep up with the events in Madison and your newspaper
is the best way to do so.
Madison County is the greatest!

EMS
Big Bend Transit, and repre-
sentatives from the Medicaid
office met, along with E.M.S.,
to try and find a solution. Ba-
sically, Madison E.M.S. can-
not transport non-emergency
patients unless they meet
Medicare and Medicaid crite-
ria, such as needing oxygen,
medical care en route, etc.,
and the ambulance must be
ordered by a physician, who
must sign a form stating why
an ambulance is necessary.
That physician is subject
to audit, and will be held re-
sponsible if it is found out
that the patient does not meet
ambulance transportation cri-
teria. This is being done, we
are told, in order to discover
and prevent fraud and abuse.
Big Bend Transit is looking
for persons to contract to do
this kind of transport, since


there are no services in Madi-
son County at the present
time. In the past, there were
two services that operated out
of Madison County, but they
are no longer in business.
There are some other options
available for transport at this
time. The following are in the
business of providing this ser-
vice:

Capital Transit, Inc.
(Big Bend)
Perry Sheets

Century Ambulance Service
(904) 356-2828

We regret the inconve-
nience that this requirement
is causing. Understand that
we operate two Advanced
Life Support ambulances to
cover all of Madison County
and when we respond to a
non-emergency transport,
that ambulance is not avail-
able for someone that truly
needs one. Our job is to re-
spond to 911 calls. While we


cont from page 1A
provided non-emergency
transport services in the past,
for the convenience of the
patients, we only did this
when all the ambulances
were present in the county
and unoccupied. Our call
volume has increased to over
3000 calls per year, with a
majority of calls being trans-
ported out of the county. We
can no longer tie up a
$150,000 ambulance with 2
E.M.T.s and paramedics just
to take someone back home.
Someone having a true emer-
gency expects that ambu-
lance to roll when he or she
dials 911. All that is re-
quired of a non-emergency
stretcher provider is a van
with a stretcher and someone
withia! strong:back -.

LOCAL & REGIONAL CRIME BLOT'TER


Tampa Federal Jury Convicts Five Persons


In Home Equity/Bank Fraud Scheme


United States Attorney Paul 1. Perez announced on March
I, that a jury found five persons guilty of multiple counts stem-
aing from a federal indictment alleging a scheme to cheat
homeownerss out of the equity in their homes and to defraud

.ons.

-False statements to a federally insured lender (1 Count)

Amy Hudd, a/k/a Amy Paukner, of Spring Hill, who was
also charged in the Indictment fell ill during the trial. Due to her
illness, her trial was severed from the others. Hudd will be tried
separately at a future date yet to be determined.
A seventh person, Lucretia Junge, age 31, Land O' Lakes,
pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bank fraud and requiring
her to testify for the government at the trial.
The conspiracy, mail fraud, and wire fraud counts each car-
ry a maximum penalty of five years' imprisonment and a fine of
$250,000. The bank fraud counts and the counts charging a false
statement in connection with a loan application each have a
maximum penalty of 30 years' imprisonment and a fine of $1-
million. A sentencing date has not been scheduled.
According to evidence presented at trial and court docu-
ments the defendants targeted homeowners located throughout
central and South Florida who were about to lose their homes
through foreclosure. The homeowners were told that First
Hanover Mortgage Corp., a company owned and controlled by
the Moumneh brothers, could help them avoid the foreclosure
and keep their homes at no cost to them. Rather than helping the
homeowners, the homeowners were duped into selling their
homes to straw buyers who were recruited by the defendants un-
der the pretext that they could buy their homes back after mak-
ing 12 monthly lease payments. In connection with each sale to
the straw buyers, the defendants applied for and obtained new
mortgage loans in the names of the straw purchasers with which
to purchase the homes. In each instance, the amount of the new
loan was in excess of the balance owed on the existing mortgage
loan on the home. After using the money from the new loan to
pay off the existing mortgage loan, the excess funds remaining
from the new loan were paid over to Properties Management
Corporation and Maxx Financial, Inc., entities owned and con-
trolled by the Moumnehs and Chuong Dam, respectively, pur-
suant to a Demand Pay Off Statement. The Demand Pay Off
Statement, according to court documents, was a sham document
created by the defendants and sent to either Voiklis, Brothers, or
Junge, who were the closing agents for each of the home sales.
The Demand Pay Off Statement was a demand for payment
of a non-existent lien against the homeowner and in favor of
Properties Management Corporation or Maxx Financial, Inc.
Without the knowledge or consent of the homeowners, more
than $2 million of homeowners' equity was syphoned off to the
defendants.
The defendants also made false statements to the new mort-
gage lenders on the loan applications in the names of the straw
purchasers. They deceived those lenders by making it appear
that the straw purchasers intended to repay the loan with their
own funds and by making it appear that the straw purchasers
were purchasing the homes as their principal residence.
The case was investigated by the Tampa Office of the Fed-
eral Bureau of Investigation and the State of Florida Office Bu-
reau of Financial Investigations. The case was prosecuted by
Assistant United States Attorney Dennis I. Moore.

Arrest Made In The 1991 KillingsOf

A Charlotte County Elderly Couple.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Charlotte
County Sheriff's Office, North Port Police Department, and the
State Attorney's Office, 12th and 20th Judicial Circuits, an-
nounce an arrest in the 1991 murders of an elderly couple in Port
Charlotte. FDLE special agents served an arrest warrant on Je-
remy Sly, 37, today at the Charlotte Correctional Institution. Sly
is already serving a life sentence on an unrelated homicide con-
viction. A Charlotte County grand jury returned an'indictment of
two counts of first-degree murder against Sly on'Wednecdsv. '.
In the early morning hours of Dec. 19, 1991, Paul StasA~y,
71, and his wife Rita, 69, were shot and killed during an alleged
home invasion robbery. On the same morning, less than five
miles away from the Stasny's home, Luis Villegas, 30, and his
stepchildren Revonda Peay, 13, Billy Ray Hall, Jr., 11, and
Richard Peay, 9, were shot and killed also during an alleged
home invasion robbery. Soon after the murders, forensic evi-
dence and investigative leads linked the murders and investiga-
tors believed the murders were committed by the same individ-
uals.
A multi-agency task force consisting of more than 40 inves-
tigators from FDLE, Charlotte County Sheriff's Office, North
Port Police Department, and the State Attorney's Office, 12th
and 20th Judicial Circuits, was developed to investigate the
homicides. Investigators conducted hundreds of interviews and
poured through evidence looking for something that would lead
to the suspectss. For more than 14 years investigators searched
for the information that would lead to an arrest. That information
came from inmate Jeremy Sly. Investigators say Sly revealed
specific information regarding the crime that only the killers)
would know.
The investigation into the killing of Luis Villegas and his
step-children is still under investigation and more arrests are ex-
pected. Police ask anyone with information on the murders to
contact local law enforcement or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-
TIPS.

After 27 Years Of Service, Sergeant Larry Pride Retires


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On March 30, Madison Firehouse was bursting at the seams
with people who came out for Patrol Sergeant Larry Pride's re-
tirement luncheon. Pride has served the citizens of the City of


Madison since 1985. Prior to that, he was a fireman, also here
in Madison, and was a master sergeant in the US Army.
At 12 o'clock, Cpl. Chris Cooks blessed the food, and visi-
tors were served. In addition to a wonderful meal, the fellow-
ship was fantastic. Pride was presented with his service


weapon, a commemorative badge, and a shotgun.
Members of the Board of Commissioners were present as
well as Madison's new City Manager. Members of the Police
Department crew who Pride served with were also present, and
personnel from of the Fire Department were there as well.


The Madison Police Department had a cake with a copy of Pride's badge stenciled
on top. Pictured around the cake are (left to right): Pride's parents, James and Ruby
Pride, Larry Pride, Judy McGhee, and Nikki Davis. (Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by

When asked what they enjoyed most about their
jobs. a unanimous reply of "We love helping people!"
rang through the three firefighters oh duty at the City
of Madison Fire Department. Alfred Martin, Brude
Jordan. and Archie Strickland \wouldn't trade their jobs
for anm thing.
The road to beconung a irfirefighter nolves a writ-
Sexam, a physical agility test. a psychological exan.
-rnedical and background check, "and an oral exaln.
Before that, one has to be certified b\ the Florida State
e College with 320 hours of work. Chief MNartin
s that the hardest part is probably the physical agili-
ttest. Prospective firefighters have to run, do eker-
ci-s, pull hoses, and climb ladders. Someone in:gpod
ph sical and mental condition is the perfect candidate
for firefighting.
"You hate got to want to help people. We'rei'ot
in it for the money, or for the glory." says Strickland
about firefighting. With over 68 years experience be-
tween them. Martin. Jordan, and Strickland are in itfor
the long haul. "We're on call 24 hours a day, seven
days a week. It isn't a job that \e can leave at.the
door." A recent surney has indicated that 98%' of all
firefighters enjoy their jobs. This is a statistic that Ore-
fighters in Madison have upheld to the highest s n-
dards
In addition to fighting fires, these dedicated civil.
servants also participate in fire prevention programs i-'
the schools and in the community at large. "Sparkyithe

By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
"I grew up in
a small town, with *
one grocery store,
so I like it here in
Madison," says
Donna Putnal, the M
new Chief Nursing f
Officer at Madison County Memorial Hospital.
Putnal grew up in Altha, a quaint town in Flori-
da. She went to Altha High School, with every
intention of becoming a nurse. After high school,
she attended Chipola Junior College in Marian-
na, where she obtained her LPN.
Upon completing that degree, Putnal contin-
ued her education at Gulf Coast Community Col-
lege in Panama City. There; she became a Reg-
istered Nurse.
Putnal says that she's been in nursing man-
agement her entire career 15 years or so. In
fact, she worked all over the State of Florida as a
Director of Nurses.
Donna is the wife of Jack Putnal, a farm


owner in Suwannee County. She has two chil-
dren from a previous marriage: the late Bryan El-
liott and a daughter,
Summer Elliott, 22,
who recently gradu-
ated as an RN.
adison County Summer works in
memorial Hospital Marianna in the
ICU at Jackson
Hospital.
Since her marriage to Jack, Putnal has
added two more children to her family. Riley Put-
nal, husband of Renata and father of twin three-
year-old girls, farms with his father. Jennifer Put-
nal, 25, is also pursing a career in nursing here at
NFCC.
"I'm devoted to making sure this hospital
provides quality nursing care to each and every
patient," Putnal says.
Madison County has much to look forward
to from Donna Putnal. Congratulations to her on
her newly acquired position.
Don't forget to wish her happy birthday on
April 4th.


The Incredible Edible Egg


SEgg yolks are one of the few foods that naturally contain Vit-
amin D.
A hen requires 24 to 26 hours to produce an egg. Thirty minutes later,
she starts all over again.
Sf Eggs age more in one day at room temperature than in one week in the re-
frigerator.


About 240 million laying hens produce approximately 5.5 billion dozen eggs
per year in the United States.
White shelled eggs are produced by hens with white feathers and ear lobes.
Brown shelled eggs are produced by hens with red feathers and red ear lobes.
S To tell if an egg is raw or hard-cooked, spin it! If the egg spins easily, it
is hard-cooked but if it wobbles, it is raw.
The egg shell may have as many as 17,000 tiny pores
over its surface.

HEALTH & NUTRITlION


VISION PROBLEMS MAY BE



UNEXPECTED PART OF PREGNANCY


With so much attention being paid lately to celebrities and
their pregnancies, the issue of good prenatal care seems to be-
come a secondary subject. The focus should be placed on edu-
cating all women on the effects that pregnancy can have on the
body and the importance of healthy habits. While many
women know to expect changes in their complexions, expand-
ing waistlines and shoe sizes,
they may not know of the pos-
sible vision changes that can
occur during pregnancy.
Women currently undergoing
fertility treatments may also
experience vision changes.
Because the cornea, the
front of the eye where light en-
ters, can thicken during preg-
nancy, some pregnant women
may discover that their contact
lenses have become uncom-
fortable. Women who wear
glasses may also notice
changes in vision. Fortunately,
most women won't require a
change in prescription and
many find they can go back to
their contacts once they have
delivered or stopped breast-
feeding. .
Women can still have their eyes safely dilated while preg-
nant.'
Because of an increase in hormones, some may notice
changes in their vision including refractive changes, dry eyes,
puffy eyelids that obscure side vision and sensitivity to light due
to migraine headaches.
Some vision changes in pregnant women, such as blurred
vision and seeing spots, may be signs of a more serious problem
and should be discussed with a doctor immediately.
"Women who have any pre-existing eye conditions, like
glaucoma, high blood pressure or diabetes, must let their eye
doctor know that they are pregnant or planning to become preg-
nant so the doctor can monitor closely for any changes in vi-
sion," said Daniel D.. Garrett, senior vice president of Prevent
Blindness America.
S As part of April's "Women's E e Health and Safety Aware-
neAst oa je.t g th4, eg U.following
iniormafiTin' n t b'at some omen nay experience during preg-
nancy:
Refractive Changes
During pregnancy, changes in hormone levels can alter the
strength you need in your eyeglasses or contact lenses. Though
a slight change is usually nothing to worry about, it's a good
idea to discuss any vision changes with an eye doctor who can
help you determine whether or not to update your prescription.
Dry Eyes
Some women experience dry eyes during pregnancy. This
is usually temporary and goes away after delivery. The good
news is that lubricating or rewetting drops are perfectly safe to
use while you are pregnant or nursing. It's also good to know
that contact enses, contact lens solutions and enzymatic clean-
ers are safe to use while you are pregnant.
Migraine Headaches
Migraine headaches linked to hormonal changes are very
common among pregnant women. In some cases, painful mi-
graine headaches make eyes feel more sensitive to light. If you
are pregnant and suffering from migraines, be sure to talk to












g .Nursine Home


your doctor before taking any prescription or non-prescription
migraine headache medications.
Diabetes
There is an increased risk of developing diabetes during
pregnancy. Blurred vision may indicate an elevation of blood
sugar levels. All women who are pregnant or who are planning
to become pregnant and have
been diagnosed with diabetes
should get a full, dilated eye
exam.
High Blood Pressure
In some instances, a woman
< may experience blurry vision
O or spots in front of her eyes
while pregnant. These symp-
toms can be caused by an in-
crease in blood pressure during
pregnancy. At excessive levels,
high blood pressure can even
cause retinal detachment.
Implications for Unborn
Child
Cigarette smoking, alcohol
and drug use pose enormous
health risks to the unborn child,
but vision disorders that can re-
sult are less publicized.
These exposures, as well as
other problems that lead to pre-term or low-birth weight infants,
increase the risk of amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (crossed
eyes) and significant refractive errors.
To request a free "Pregnancy and Your Vision" fact sheet or
for more information on women's general eye health, please vis-
it www.preventblindness.org or call 1-800-331-2020.

Time for Some
Financial Spring Cleaning?


Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones


Now that April is here, you might decide to spruce
up your home, both inside and out. But you also may
want to do a little "spring cleaning" to help keep your
financial house in order.
What steps should you take to tidy up your finan-
cial situation? Actually, some of the moves, are the.
same as those you'd ds6 tom itdiig6ratem yor house and
yard. Consider the following:
Get the clutter out. When you open some of your
closets, you probably ask yourself: "Why on earth do
I need that?" Strange as it may seem, when you open
your investment portfolio up for examination, you
might have similar thoughts. Perhaps you've had some
investments for so long that you no longer remember
why you bought them. If you aren't sure why you own
a stock, bond or other type of security, you might want
to sell it and use the proceeds to invest in something
else that might be more useful in helping you meet
your goals. b
Rearrange the furnishings. Over time, and almost
without your being aware of it, the furnishings in a
room can get "out of balance." Perhaps you have too
many chairs in one corer, or maybe your new enter-
tainment center is crowding out a couch. Usually, with
a little rearranging, you can get things back in order.
And the same is true with your portfolio: Over time, it
might have become unbalanced, with too much of one
investment and too little of another. This situation
could prove hazardous to your financial situation,
especially if the imbalance means you are taking on
too much risk or, conversely, if your holdings have
become too conservative to provide the growth you
need. A well-balanced portfolio can help you achieve
your long-term goals and accommodate your individ-
ual risk tolerance, but it won't assure you of a profit or
protect against a loss in declining markets.
Update your home's "look". If you've lived in a
place for a long time, the rooms and even the land-
scaping can start to look a little "frumpy." Perhaps the
way you lived in 1997 isn't quite the way you'd like to
live in 2007. So, you make some changes. And when
you look at your investment portfolio, you might also
think that some elements aren't reflecting new realities
of your life, such as marriage, divorce, a new child, a
child going off to college or impending retirement. If
this is the case, you may need to adjust your holdings.
Check your security system. It's always a good
idea to check your smoke detectors and alarm systems
to make sure they are functioning properly. And, just
like your home's security features, your life insurance
needs to be checked periodically. If you've moved to a
more expensive home, or if you've added a child to
your family, is your insurance still sufficient? Or, if
you have recently remarried or divorced, have you
changed your beneficiaries?

As you can see, you can gain a lot of benefit from
a financial spring cleaning. Get started soon.
