FCAT Tests/Scores Missing


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A number of Florida Com-
prehensive Assessment Test
(FCAT) scores for Madison
County are missing.
Shirley Joseph, FCAT coor-
dinator for the Madison County
School District, said that she is
not sure if the tests have been
misplaced or if they are lost.


Chandra Bowden, who is in
charge of the FCAT for the
Florida Department of Educa-
tion, could not be reached by
press time. Her voice mail said
that she would return to her of-
fice on Monday, June 11.
The missing test scores
could affect the way that some
schools are graded. Since some
of the tests may be used for stu-


dent retention or graduation
purposes, it could also hamper
students passing or graduating.
It is not known whether the
Department of Education or
the vendor who handles the
tests for the state is responsible
for misplacing the tests and the
results.
There is no word on
whether or not the tests are not

Two Injured In One-Vehicle Crash


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Two people were injured in a one-car accident
on Saturday, June 2, at approximately 3:30 p.m.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol report,
April Denise Truett, 35, of Daytona Beach, was
traveling east in the passing lane on the interstate
in a 2007 Ford.
As she attempted to slow down, due to the
heavy rain, she applied her brakes too hard..The
Ford then fishtailed to the left on the wet pave-
ment.
Truett then overcorrected and caused the Ford
to travel southeast across the outside lane of 1-10.


The car then traveled southeast onto the south
shoulder and rotated a half-turn clockwise and
traveled southeast into the ditch.
The Ford collided with an oak tree and came to
a final rest in the ditch on the south shoulder of I-
10, facing southeast.
An estimated total of $20,000 in damage was
done to the Ford.
Truett and her passenger, Tonya Denise
Bradley, 39, also of Daytona Beach, were transport-
ed to Madison County Memorial Hospital with non-
life threatening injuries.
FHP Trooper James I. Parker, Jr. was the inves-
tigating officer.

Friendship Is Love,

With True Understanding


'" A man was walking in a wilderness. He became lost
and was unable to find his way out. Another man met
him, "Sir," he said, "I am lost; can you show me the way
out of this wilderness?"
"No," said the stranger, "I cannot show you the way
out of the wilderness, but maybe if I walk with you, we
can find it together."
This simple little verse, to me, is the definition of
true friendship, and, that is what I want to write about
this week....true friendship at its best.
There are two beautiful young girls who have been
friends since they were born. One is The Husband and
my granddaughter, Cheltsie Elizabeth Kinsley, and the
other is her best friend, Lizeth Abigail Vasquez.
Cheltsie is the daughter of Paul and Emerald
(Greene) Kinsley. Abigail is the daughter of Fredy and
Carmen Vasquez of Madison. The two young couples
(and good friends) happened to find out that they were
expecting babies at about the same time. Emerald and
Carmen bonded even more as they exchanged moments
together planning their babies, and Paul and Fredy
bonded even more as young expectant fathers do.
Abigail was born first, on November 6, 1992.
Cheltsie was born on November 27, 1992.
Thus, the "best friends" were born only three weeks
apart. Their friendship began immediately.
Since both Emerald and Carmen worked, as did the
husbands, the couples found the most wonderful
babysitter Madison County had, Mrs. Gladys Snyder,
who kept the babies until the two little ones began pre-
Kindergarten when they were 2 1/2 years old. The two
best friends began attending "Miss Jean's Kinder-
garten" then, where they stayed all day together until
they began Kindergarten in the 4-K program at the
Madison Academy
Their teacher at Madison Academy, in 4-K, was Mrs.
Karen Wieland, who still remembers how close the two
were. She related to the mothers one time that the girls
would get upset if another child began playing with
them so that the two weren't just together alone. They
thought best friends should only play with each other.
The girls have enjoyed all their classes together at
the Madison Academy from kindergarten until this
year, and have remained "best friends" for 14 1/2 years.
2007 is a special year for the two friends, as they
graduated together from the Madison Academy Abigail
was the top student of the class as its Valedictorian.
Both girls were honor students and members of the Na-
tional Junior Beta Club.
The girls will remain together for their high school
years as they go on to Aucilla Christian Academy to
complete their education. Throughout their years at
the Academy, the best friends have shared many memo-
ries playing on the Girls Softball team together, and on
the Girls Basketball team.
Now, they will continue their sports interests to-
gether as they play on the same teams at ACA, and excel
in academics there as well.
Cheltsie and Abigail are indeed the truest of
friends, with many wonderful moments of love and
laughter as they have played their 14 1/2-years in the
"sunshine of life."
The two are the example of what true friendship is
all about, and it is indeed the most special kind of love.
This week, we salute you, Cheltsie and Abigail -
you are two charming, funny, smart, lovely young
ladies, and The Husband and I are proud you call us
"Pop" and "Grandma."
We love you both.
"Nuff said...Bye for now... See 'ya."


I would also like to ad-
dress the designer clothes is-
sue. Do you think for a
minute that school uniforms


clothes Are Not The Problem


Maybe C
Dear Editor:
After writing my initial
letter to the Editor; I had sev-
eral parents talk to me about
the uniform issue and they
brought up some very impor-
tant questions that Madison
School Board needs to take
into consideration. Their de-
cision was based on their
personal hopes and not on
the research and statistical
facts. Parents want to see
the research, the statistical
reasoning behind the wear-
ing of uniforms. Parents
want to see the report that
the school board used to
make their decision. Par-
ents say, "Show us the facts
and the figures." Obviously
a decision of this magnitude
deserves a lot of research
and study to be done. It is
not a decision that can be
made lightly. In trying to
solve some of the schools
problems, they have just cre-
ated more headaches for the
parents. When are our
schools going to stop trying
to be the parent and just con-
centrate on the education?
Additional Comment:
Why is MCCS singled out to
wear Uniforms from the oth-
er schools in Madison Coun-
ty?
I do not know if the
school board has really
thought about the issues re-
garding school uniforms.
And if they did, why not
make all Madison County
schools wear uniforms if it
will help "curb disciplinary
problems and promote a
sense of conformity for the
students" as quoted by Assis-
tant Principle Davis Bar-
clay? Did they not think
about how MCCS students
wearing uniforms will be
singled out from other Madi-
son schools? When there is a
program for all school stu-
dents at NFCC, how will
MCCS students feel when
Lee or Pinetta students show
up? And are they saying that
MCCS students are worst
than students at Lee or
Pinetta? Too many ques-
tions remain unanswered in
regards to the decision made
by the Madison County
School Board.
Additional Comment:
Even wearing the Uniforms
there was no significant dif-
ference to the student's ap-
pearances.
One parent explained to
me that she wished school
was still in so parents could
ride by the Lanier Field
Recreation Park or known as
the skate park around
12:30pm till about 1:30pm
during the week. They would
have seen first hand how
their children would look in
uniforms. She further
added; that the principle at
the Excel school quoted "it
helped in disciplinary prob-
lems the day that Excel
School uniforms were put in
place." I can see why The
uniforms did not make any
difference in their appear-
ance; rather it made them
look worse. The students
clothes where dirty and
stained up. The boys still dis-
respectfully wore their pants
below the waistline showing
undergarments and teachers
said nothing to the students.
Basically, the students cloth-
ing looked dreadful. Is this
what parents, faculty mem-
bers and school board mem-
bers want for MCCS? And if
so, why not have all students
in Madison county look this
way Why is MCCS singled
out from the other elemen-
tary schools?
Additional Comment:
Students do not all wear the
same sizes, there are those
who wear specialized sizes?


the uniforms?
The cost topic with
school uniform might work
for some but not all. There
are children of all different
size's: short, tall, thin and
big. To find the uniform
items if your child wears
regular sizes would save you
money, but what about the
ones that do not fix the regu-
lar sizes. Wal-Mart or Target
only carries items for young
girls up to size 16, then skips
to juniors sizes 3/4. What if
your child wears a junior
size 0? The parent will still
have to buy higher price
clothes or what they can find
to meet requirements. That
forces the child to wear
clothing that doesn't fit prop-
erly. Even with denim jeans,
stores only carry a limited
supply. Now let's make it
harder for them by limiting
clothes to only black, khaki
or navy blue.
Is Madison School Board
going to purchase the uni-
forms for the needy stu-
dents? Madison County has
a high rate of students with
parents on low income; this
could cost the Madison
School Board thousands of
dollars. That money should
be spent on improving the
school building and purchas-
ing more educational items
not uniforms. This past year,
teachers did not have enough
student books to give out to
all the students for several of
their classes and yet they
want to purchase uniforms?
What is their priority?


The last problem I would
like to mention is the disci-
plinary problems, not with
the students but administra-
tion. Education should be
the priority of the school,
not discipline. A student
that is a disciplinary prob-
lem should be the problem of
the parents. Schools have
rules and regulations re-
garding discipline? Why
aren't they following their
own rules and guidelines?
Disciplinary problems will
stop when children are disci-
plined for their actions. The
problem I see is that admin-
istration does not hold to the
rules and regulations with
the student code of conduct.
If a child breaks the rules,
he/she needs to be punished
according to the rules set by
the school district. Adminis-
tration says that they are try-
ing to help the child by talk-
ing to them and sending
them back to class. In truth,
this same person a few years
later breaks the law and
wonders why they are going
to jail. It is because nobody
taught them that breaking
the rules and regulations
comes with a punishment.
Parents want answers
and solutions to problems
with education and the
schools. The parents do not
want more problems and the
school uniform issue is just
another major headache. for
parents.


are going to stop this issue?
You can find the same
clothes at all the designer
stores. Why would you think
that parents that work and
are able to buy the designer
clothes won't still buy them.
And why not, they work hard
enough? Think about the
work force. Do you see the
people who hold top posi-
tions walking around wear-
ing clothes that come from
Wal-Mart or Target stores?
When have you seen any re-
ally nice business suits at
Wal-Mart? In the business
world, employers look at the
style of your clothing when
hiring someone. A person
can find this statement is
true in college business
books regarding steps on the
hiring process. Have you
ever heard the saying "the
first impression is every-
thing." This proves that
even in the work force there
is an issue in designer
clothes. Should companies
start setting regulations and
policies regarding employ-
ees clothing and appearance
in their workforce? Confor-
mity is not how society sees
things in the real world. By
having our children conform
to one standard, we are tak-
ing away their individuality.
Not everyone is alike; it
would be a boring world if
we were.

Cost of uniforms to parents
for more than one student, or
parents who are needy and
have no funds to purchase

Sixty-three years ago, Americans Woke to the news that
Allied soldiers were landing on the beaches of Northern
France ... the invasion of Hitler's Fortress Europe was on!
Operation Overlord as it was called was an attack of epic
size. No seaborne invasion, the toughest of all military op-
erations, had ever been approached on such a massive scale,
and since that time, it has not been surpassed ... probably
never will. The objective was to land 175,000 American,
-British, and Canadian troops on a 50-mile stretch of beach
known as Normandy Their equipment included 50,000 vehi-
cles, tanks and howitzers as well as countless tons of ammu-
nition and supplies. To make the transit from England to
France required more than 6000 vessels and 11,000 aircraft.
As .historian StephenbAmbgse.QcrJe, w
like moving the cities of Green Bay, Racine and Kenosha,
Wisconsin across Lake Michigan. in-one.night. Can you
imagine? To oversee this massive operation, General
Dwight D. Eisenhower had been in England since early Jan-
uary 1944 directing the planning and making key decisions.
Opposing the Allies was terrible weather, the frigid,
rough seas of the English Channel and sixty German diyi-
sions. By an elaborate deception, the Allies convinced Hitler
that the crossing would take place at the nearest point to
England, the Pas de Calais where he concentrated most of
his forces. In Normandy the landing troops faced six divi-
sions of which two were employed in direct defense of the
beaches.
The operation began just after midnight, June 6 by drop-
ping three airborne divisions. The British secured the east-
ern flank while the American 82nd "All American" and 101st
"Screaming Eagles" secured the west. The fact that the two
American divisions were badly scattered served to throw the
German's defense into chaos.
The landings began at 6:30 AM on five beaches: Utah;
Omaha; Gold; Juno; and Sword. The landings on the three
eastern beaches assigned to the English and Canadians went
fairly smoothly as did Utah, the far western beach assigned
to the 4th Infantry "Ivy" The problem was with Omaha, as-
signed to four regimental combat teams of the 1st "Big Red
One" and 29th "Blue and Gray" A combination of mistakes,
bad seas and well placed defenses turned Omaha into a
killing ground for the first wave of attackers. If you have
ever seen the opening scene of Spielberg's "Saving Private
Ryan," you get an idea of how Omaha was transformed into
"hell on earth." In the immortal words of 16th Infantry com-
mander George Taylor as he rallied Omaha's survivors,
"Two kinds of people are staying on this beach, the dead and
those who are going to die now let's get the hell out of
here." More than a thousand American boys died on that
bloody beach in the early morning hours. Great leadership
and destroyers that moved close into shore to shell enemy
positions saved the day at Omaha.
The D-Day landings were a successful start, but they
only signaled the beginning of the Normandy campaign. It
would last for another seven weeks and involved bloody,
tough fighting from one hedgerow to the next. These natur-
al barriers had for centuries marked farm fields and were
tough enough to stop a tank. As the hard-won territory ex-
panded, more troops and equipment poured across the
beach and joined the fight. Carroll Agner's unit, the 2nd In-
fantry "Indianheads" were supposed to land on June 7th but
waited offshore for two more days until the first attackers
had won additional breathing space.
Finally on July 25th, Omar Bradley's 1st Army launched
Operation Cobra from the base of the Cherbourg Peninsula.
In short order, the heavy weight of American armor and ar-
tillery broke through the weakening German defenses and
the race across France was on. As the British closed in from
the north, the American 3rd Army aimed east and closed in
the Falaise Gap from the south. The race was on to liberate
Paris and drive the hated Nazis from French soil.
What began at Normandy expanded to include other Eu-
ropean ports. The rush to squeeze Hitler's Third Reich be-
tween the western Allies and the Russian Army began in
earnest. Eleven months later, the remnants of the "thou-
sand-year" Reich surrendered and the war in Europe was
over. By that time, Eisenhower's command totaled 91 divi-
sions, two-thirds of which were American, and more than 2
million soldiers. And it all began on the hard-fought sands
of the Normandy

LOCAL & REGIONAL CRIME BLOTTER


\ /Madison County


S CRIME BEAT

ALL SUSPECTS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED INNOCENT
. .UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY IN A COURT OF LAW


Man Arrested For

False Identification
A Madison man was arrested for giving false iden-
tification to a law officer early Monday morning,
June 4.
At approximately 2:15 a.m., Patrolman Joel
Oquendo made contact with Jaleel Ortez Gillyard and
two other men in reference to a possible suspect from
an officer pursuit 20 minutes earlier.
When Oquendo asked the other two men for their
names and dates of birth, they gave the information
willingly but Gillyard kept giving Oquendo the wrong
date of birth and wrong name.
Oquendo arrested Gillyard for giving him wrong
information. He was taken to the Madison County
Jail, where a fingerprint check confirmed his identi-
ty as Jaleel Ortez Gillyard.

First Baptist Church, was incorrectly identified

Financial Tips for Newlyweds
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
It's June a popular month for weddings. If you're
getting married this month, you have a lot to think
about: a rehearsal, a ceremony, a reception, possibly a
honeymoon. But most important of all, you've got the
anticipation of starting a new life together. To help
make that life a happy one, you and your new spouse
"will need to communicate with each other on all types
of issues and one of the most important of those
issues is your joint financial situation.
So, once the wedding festivities are behind you,
take some steps that relate to your future financial well
being. Here are a few suggestions:

Establish financial goals. You and your spouse
can become disciplined money managers if you're
both working toward some joint long-term financial
objectives, such as a new home. If you eventually have
children, your goals may expand to include college.
And throughout your working life, you'll want to put
money away for retirement. No matter what your goals
are, you'll have a better chance of achieving them if
you set out a strategy and stick to it.
Don't put off investing. How much money you
have available to invest depends on your income and
expenses. When you're just married and establishing a
household, you may not feel that you have a lot of cash
to spare, but make it a priority to put away something
each month, even if it's only a small amount. If you
can get into the investment "habit" right away, it will
serve you well throughout your married life.
Take advantage of retirement plans. If you and
your spouse are both working, you may each have
access to a 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retire-
ment plan. Contribute as much as you can afford to
each plan at least enough to earn the employer's
match, if one is offered. Look closely at how you are
each allocating your dollars within your respective
plans. Try to avoid duplicating each other's investment
choices. By spreading your money around a range of
investments, the two of you can potentially reduce the
effects of market volatility and give yourselves more
chances for success. A financial advisor can help you
identify the investment choices that are appropriate for
your risk tolerance, goals and time horizon.
Get control of your debts. Your debts, and those of
your new spouse, are now of concern to both of you.
While some debts such as a mortgage may be
inevitable, it's generally a good idea to keep your debt
load as low as possible. That's because the more
money you spend on debts, the less you'll have avail-
able to invest for your future. By going over your stu-
dent loans, car loans, credit cards, etc., you may be
able to develop a strategy to reduce your overall debt
load.

By following these suggestions, you can start mar-
ried life off on the right foot, at least in regard to your
financial situation. As for who gets to write the thank-
you notes for the wedding presents well, that's anoth-
er matter.

As one of the few remaining counties without ade-
quate courthouse security, it was time to take measures
to insure the safety of the facility, staff, and public. Re-
alizing this need, the Chief Judge came before the coun-
ty commission to ask for the appropriation of more se-'
curity and bailiffs, as well as funding for both.
At this moment, the courthouse employs one full-
time bailiff and one part-time bailiff. Employing more
bailiffs will cause an increase in the Sheriff's budget.
This increase will be discussed at the budget session
that will be held next month.
On June 12, the legislator will conduct a special ses-
sion in which the reduction of property taxes in Florida
will be discussed. This reduction will target big cuts to
local government, which will influence Madison's bud-
get.

Sex Trafficker

Sentenced To More

Than 30 Years In Jail
R. Alexander Acosta, United States Attorney for the
Southern District of Florida, Jonathan I. Solomon, Spe-
cial Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation,
Donald W. De Lucca, Chief, Miami Beach Police Depart-
ment, John Timoney, Chief, City of Miami Police De-
partment, Bruce Roberts, Chief, Fort Lauderdale Police
Department, and Robert Parker, Director, Miami-Dade
Police Department, announced that defendant Demond
Levail Osley, a/k/a "D-LO," was sentenced Friday, May
16, by United States District Court Judge Federico
Moreno to 365 months' imprisonment after having been
convicted by a jury of one count of sex trafficking of a
minor by force, fraud, and coercion, in violation of Title
18, United States Code, Section 1591(a), one count of
transportation of an individual for prostitution, in vio-
lation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 2421, one
count of coercion and enticement of an individual to en-
gage in sexual activity, in violation of Title 18, United
States Code, Section 2422(a), and one count of coercion
and enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity,
in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section
2422(b).
According to the testimony and evidence presented
at trial, on November 8, 2006, Miami Beach Police offi-
cers coordinated and conducted a street-level prostitu-
tion sting operation on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach.
During this operation, a young girl solicited the under-
cover Miami Beach police officer to engage in commer-
cial sex acts. The young woman was arrested, and a sub-
sequent investigation revealed that she was in fact a mi-
nor and a victim of sex trafficking. Federal authorities
were contacted when local detectives discovered that the
individual was 17 years old.
Further investigation by the Innocence Lost Task
Force, which includes members of the Miami Beach Po-
lice Department, Miami Police Department, Miami-
Dade Police Department, and the Federal Bureau of In-
vestigation, revealed that the 17 year old girl had been
transported by the defendant from Detroit to Fort Laud-
erdale for the purpose of using the girl for commercial
sex acts in South Florida. At trial, the victim testified
that she was physically assaulted by the defendant and
forced to work as a prostitute at various locations in Mi-
ami-Dade and Broward Counties.
Acosta commended the investigative efforts of the
Federal Bureau of Investigation, Miami Beach Police
Department, City of Miami Police Department, City of
Fort Lauderdale Police Department, and the Miami-
Dade Police Department. The case was prosecuted by
Assistant United States Attorneys Brent Tantillo and
Scott Ray, with legal research support by the Depart-
ment of Justice's Civil Rights and Criminal Divisions.

Coal Plant
cont from Page 1A

the Taylor County Board of Commissioners is allowing
for up to seven power plants to be built.
Previously, the land was deemed as agricultural, but
now, the new designation is power plant.
Commissioners, without any discussion, voted 4-0 to
approve both amendments. One commissioner had to
abstain from voting because of his affiliation with Buck-
eye, a paper mill in Taylor County One other commis-
sioner is retired from Buckeye, but did not abstain from
voting.
The only discussion was a brief tirade from com-
missioners about a comment taken out of context from
Ronald Saff, a specialist in internal medicine and aller-
gies and asthma, affiliated with the FSU college of Madi-
son. He is a member of Physicians For Social Responsi-
bility (Tallahassee), in opposition to the coal plant pro-
ject as a whole
Twenty minutes of discussion were given at the
opening of each item to both a spokesperson for Taylor
Energy Center and Taylor Residents United for the En-
vironment. (TRUE)
The representative for TEC outlined, briefly and
vaguely, the text amendment, but failed to address ex-
actly why the new amendment was needed. According
to TRUE's attorney, these changes were not needed, and
are a veiled door for sliding in more plants.
Several Madison residents were in attendance. in-
cluding Steve McHargue, Lisa Flournoy, and Barry Par-
sons. McHargue spoke, in a two-minute long dialogue,
neither for or against the adoption of said amendment.
Flournoy spoke passionately about her objections to
the proposal citing that the new wording to the amend-
ment, and the designation change (from agriculture to
power plant) would allow for up to seven coal fired pow-
er plants in the future. She made a point that the 32348
zip code, Perry, is the 45th (out of 100) most polluted zip
codes in the U.S., due to the amount of known cancer
causing chemicals and particles in the water and air.
"This will have an affect on the entire region," said
Gale Dickert, an outspoken member of Taylor Residents
Uniting for the Environment.
Very few Taylor residents spoke for the adoption of
the amendment most of the speakers for the amend-
ment were employees of either the Jacksonville Energy
Authority, Taylor Energy Center, or Florida Municipal
Power Agency.
The overwhelming majority of Taylor residents are
in fact against the coal plant in its eiitirety
Diane Whitfield issued.-an official statement to
Greene Pablibhing, Inc. on behalf ofeTRUE, stating,
"TRUE is disappointed that the education provided to
commissioners was not well received."
Madison residents have something to be worried
about groundwater pollution, increased rail traffic,
and added air pollution will all result from one power
plant, let alone seven.
Residents closest to Taylor County, such as those in
Greenville, are at high ,risk for well contamination.
Even though wastewater will be stored in lined, holding
ponds, leaks do happen. Essentially TEC is creating a
liquid landfill, and all landfills do leak.
Coal fired power plants emit more radiation than.a
nuclear power plant pumping uranium and thorium
into the atmosphere at alarming rates. Coal also con-
tains mercury, lead, arsenic, and cadmium, all of which
are on the Environmental Protection Agency's 20 Most
Noxious Substances list. Coal emissions contain nickel,
vanadium, beryllium, barium, chromium, copper,
molybdenum, zinc, selenium, and radium.
Numerous environmental organizations actively op-
pose the TEC project including the Sierra Club and the
Natural Resources Defense Council.

with its philosophy clearly based on the Holy Bible. Its objectives are charitable, and
benevolent.
OES is a social order, comprised of persons with spiritual values, but it is not a re-
ligion. Its appeal rests in the true beauty of the refreshing and character-building
lessons that are so sincerely portrayed in its ritualistic work.

Plus-Sized Wedding Fashions: Wedding Dresses For Bigger, Beautiful Brides


Brides are beautiful re-
gardless of their size, but
plus-sized brides face a
challenge in finding a wed-
ding dress that makes the
entire planning of your
special day pale in compar-
ison. The wedding dress of
your dreams is out there,
but if you're a plus-size
bride, you will often run
into the problem that most
traditional bridal shops
don't even carry your size.
Bigger brides (we like
to say voluptuous) have
hope. There's no reason to
starve yourself or start
feeling ashamed of your
body; first, we're going to
look at ways of accentuat-
ing your beauty and then
we'll tackle the harder task
of finding someone to give
you what you want a wed-
ding dress that makes you
feel like the goddess you':.
are as you walk down the
aisle.
Playing up the Positive:
Plus-Sized Fashions that
Work
As with all fashions for
the plus-sized woman, wed-
ding dresses should accen-
tuate what you like most
about yourself and subtly
play down the things you
don't like. When you begin
your quest for the perfect
dress, keep in mind the fol-
lowing guidelines that will
help you get something per-
fect even before you try it
on:
1. A-Lines: A-line
dresses are close-fitting at
the shoulders and gently
flare away from the bodice
to create a long, flowing


* line. There aren't any
cinches or waistbands to
accentuate not-so-flattering
curves around the belly,
which is perfect for the
plus-size bride.
2. Sensual Curves: Got
a bust that you're confident
with? Empire waist dress-
es, the kind that fall in a
straight line from just be-
low the bust, will play up
the curves you're most
proud of and make the rest
seem unimportant.
3. Slinky Sleeves:
Long sleeves that come to a
point over the hand (gothic
style) or end just below the
elbow add a sleek line to
your dress that you'll love.
Stay far, far away from
puffy or unfitted sleeves, as
they'll add bulk to the over-
all look. A recently return-
ing trend is to wear
,'gauntlets" sleeves that
aren't attached to the dress.
This is a fashion popular in
renaissance gowns, which
can show off a peek of skin
here and there, which is be-
yond sexy
4. Open Up: Gowns
with open necklines such
as scoop necks and key-
holes are flattering to the
full figure. Once again, if
you have a full bust that
you're confident about, you
can play up your assets by
choosing a support bra that
lets you flirtatiously dis-
play your d6colletage.
5. Delicate Details:
Our faces are what show
the world we know we're
beautiful. Place more atten-
tion on your face and hair
by framing yourself with a

Putting it Together:
Bridal Gown and Lingerie
Shops
Once you have decided
on the right "look" what
style of dress you're go-
ing to be on the quest for
the right dress maker or
shop. Even beyond that,
your wedding dress will fall
into a "theme", be it renais-
sance or modern, and the
lingerie you choose should
reflect that theme.
If you thought finding
a plus-size wedding dress
was difficult, wait till you
try to find the right plus-
size lingerie to go with it.
Message boards are always
filled with women size 20
and up who can't find the
lingerie they're looking for; .
that perfect mix of beauty
and theme which actually
fits them.
Here, I've gathered
some of the most reputable
sites that provide plus size
wedding dresses or plus
size lingerie, and in some
cases they will help you out
with both.
Before you get going,
though, here are some tips
for buying the perfect wed-
ding dress.
1. Get Moving Start
shopping as soon as you set
your wedding date. Most
plus-size wedding dresses
are a special order, which
means that they could take
up to 6 months to arrive. If
you have your wedding
gown custom made, you
need to allow at least 6
months for the gown to be
created, fit, and altered.
You might .get lucky and
the gown will arrive early;
if it does, you can usually
wait until about 4 weeks be-
fore the wedding to have it
altered.
2. Count on a Deposit
- Special order wedding
gowns and most custom
made wedding dresses will
come with the need to place
a deposit. Generally, the
store or designer will re-
quire 1/3 to 1/2 the total
cost of the gown on deposit,
and the deposit is not usu-
ally refundable. So, before
you order, make sure that
your decision is a firm one
and keep receipts of your
purchase for your records.
3. Get Measured If
you are ordering online,
make sure that you get
measured by an experi-
enced seamstress before
you order. The designer or
store you order from will


not fully trust; you might
have problems finding the
plus-size gown of your


dreams, but no one has the
right to pressure you into
buying it from them.


use these measurements to
get the gown as perfectly
fitted as possible before al-
terations.
4. Read the Contract -
Both stores and wedding
gown designers will re-
quire you to sign a sales
contract; this finalizes your
order and protects both you
and the person you are or-
dering from. In addition to
the standard information
(your name, address, phone
number, and method of
payment), your contract
should include your wed-
ding date, and the last ac-
ceptable date for delivery of
the gown. When setting
this delivery date, provide
yourself plenty of time to
make alterations and take
portraits. Finally the con-
tract should clearly state
the manufacturer's name,
the style of the gown, the
size and color you have or-
dered, a description of the
gown, and (if at all possi-
ble), a picture reference of
the gown you're expecting
to receive. Ask questions
about the "fine print" be-
fore you sign the contract.
5. Charge It Even if
you purchase your gown
right in your home-town
and not online, you should
use a credit card to make
your payment. Doing this
protects you in case any-
thing should happen; fed-
eral law states that if the
merchandise you buy does
not live up to what was
promised, you are entitled
to a refund. So, if your
gown arrives damaged, in
the wrong size, or not at
all, you still have your
money
If the company or per-
son you're ordering your
wedding dress from does-
n't give you complete infor-
mation, or refuses to an-
swer questions to your sat-
isfaction, DON'T sign the
contract. Never feel
trapped into purchasing a
gown from someone you do

America's Second Harvest Brings


Food To Madison Residents


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Second Harvest has been bringing food to America's low-itcome families for 25 years. Each
year, over 25 million people, including 9 million children and 3 million senior citizens, are
reached at the national level. In the state of Florida last year, upwards of 300 thousand needy
people were given the food they so desperately needed.
The mission for America's Second Harvest is simple. "Our mission is to feed America's
hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the
fight to end hunger."
Here in Madison, the Second Harvest food bank is a part of the Consolidated Christian
Ministries, and can be found adjacent to the local jail. Volunteers work to help unload the
trucks of supplies and then disperse it to people in need.
Food banks are centralized storage and clearing houses for donated food. The food comes
from a variety of sources, including excess production, as well as food unready for market.
miss-packaged or labeled foods, trial marketing runs, and canned food drives.
As America's largest charitable hunger relief organization, America's Second Harvest
will continue bringing a variety of food items to low-income people for many years to come.
Hours of operation for Consolidated Christian Ministries are:
Third Monday of each month, food if registered, between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
Wednesday, bread, between 12 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.
Thursday, bread, between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
Consolidated Christian Ministries can be reached at (850) 973 6208.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY


The History Of Father's Day


The United States is one of the few.
countries in the world that has an official
day on which fathers are honored by
their children. On the third Sunday in
June, fathers all across the United States
are given presents, treated to dinner, or
otherwise made to feel special.
The origin of Father's Day is
not clear. Some say that it ,
began with a church ser-
vice in West Virginia
in 1908. Others say
the first Father's
Day ceremony
was held in
Vancouver,
Washington.
The presi-
dent of the
Chicago
branch of the
Lions' Club, .
Harry Meek, is
said to have cel-
ebrated the first
Father's Day with
his organization in
1915; and the day that
they chose was the third
Sunday in June, the closest
date to Meek's own birthday!
Regardless of when the first true Fa-
ther's Day occurred, the strongest pro-
moter of the holiday was Mrs. Bruce
John Dodd of Spokane, Washington. Mrs.
Dodd felt that she had an outstanding fa-
ther. He was a veteran of the Civil War.
His wife had died young, and he had
raised six children without their mother.
In 1909, Mrs. Dodd approached her
own minister and others in Spokane
about having a church service dedicated
to fathers on June 5, her father's birthday.


That date was too soon for her minister to
prepare the service, so he spoke a few
weeks later on June 19th. From then on,
the state of Washington celebrated the
third Sunday in June as Father's Day
Children made special desserts, or visit-
ed their fathers if they lived apart.
States and organiza-
tions began lobbying Con-
gress to declare an an-
nual Father's Day. In
1916, President
Woodrow Wilson
approved of
this idea, but
it was not un-
til 1924 when
President
Call vin
Coolidge
made it a na-
tional event
to "establish
more intimate
relations be-
tween fathers
and their children
and to impress upon
fathers the full measure
of their obligations." Since
then, fathers had been honored
and recognized by their families through-
out the country on the third Sunday in
June.
When children can't visit their fa-
thers or take them out to dinner, they
send a greeting card. Traditionally, fa-
thers prefer greeting cards that are not
too sentimental. Most greeting cards are
whimsical so fathers laugh when they
open them. Some give heartfelt thanks
for being there whenever the child need-
ed Dad.

Greene Publishing, Inc.
"Miss Jean's" 54th Kindergarten Program was held
at the Van H. Priest Auditorium on Thursday, May 24.
The program has become a must see event even for
people whose children aren't enrolled at "Miss Jean's".
Every year, the students of "Miss Jean's" Kinder-
garten Daycare choose a song and prepare for the big
day when they get to sing that song in front of their fam-
ilies. The young ones get to perform, often for the first
time, in front of an audience. The program actually pro-
motes self-esteem at an early age.
Miss Jean was the emcee for the evening. Helen Mc-
Cain accompanied the children on the piano. Backstage,
Carol Grant, Mavis Schaffer, Naomi Seaborn, and Casey
Tuten helped keep the program running without a
hitch.
The program began with a warm welcome from
Miss Jean and then all the children were introduced in-
dividually.
What a lovely sight, when a group of more than 20
students all sing together. The group sang "Good
Evening To You," followed by three devotional songs,
"This Is The Day," "Blessed Be The Name," and "Into
My Heart."
Then came the "Prayer Poem," followed by a heart-
felt children's prayer. Directly after that, the children
pledged allegiance to the Christian Flag and-afterward
sang and signed "Glory Hallelujah." The group then
pledged allegiance to the American Flag and sang "God


Bless America."
The students sang a number of songs together, in-
cluding: "No To Drugs," "Waded In The Water," "Jesus
Loves Me," "Row, Row, Row Your Boat," "Swing Low,"
and "Top of Spaghetti." The students also enjoyed danc-
ing and singing to the "Hokey Pokey" which is enjoyed
by all children who attend "Miss Jean's."
The two-year kindergarten group sang, "It Is Rain-
ing." Vocalists were Sydney Curtis, Reagan Hill, Grace
Pearson Jackson Kendrick, Emma Grace Newman, Ju-
lia Piure, Allie Wilkerson, and Stetson Wirick.
Dalton Cochran, Caleb Ginn, Jayce Johnson, Tres
Miller, Abbey Sanderson, Riley Smith, and Angel Vann,
the three-year kindergarten group,' sang, "Mary Had A
Little Lamb."
The four-year-olds, Tony Bowen, Tazen Ferrell, Ly-
dia Goings, Atticus Molnar, and Bailey Watts sang, "In-
side Out." The four-year-old boys also sang, "God Loves
To Talk To Little Boys."
Every child received a diploma and a big swirled lol-
lipop, and then the program was brought to a close with
a group song, entitled "Good Night."
"Miss Jean's" Kindergarten motto "Love to Learn
and Learn to Love" shines brightly through each and
every one of her wonderful students. She looks forward
to next year's promotion ceremony, and a new group to
teach letters as well as life lessons.
"Thank you for sharing God's precious gifts with us,
your Children!"
Billie Jean

The Aucilla Christian Academy Warriors beat the
John Paul II Crusaders 19-0 in their spring football jam-
boree played in Aucilla on Friday, May 11.
ACA Head Coach Joe Striplin said that the game
helped him get a good look on next year's team, which
returns a number of starters, including quarterback
Matt Dobson, who will be an eighth grader next season.
Key players in the game included Kyle Barnwell,
Daniel Greene, Matt Bishop and Matt Dobson, of Madi-
son County, who turned in stellar performances.
Greene suffered a broken finger during the jam-
boree.
Striplin's forecast for next season is bright.
"We're returning more starters than we have had re-
turning in years," he said.
Aucilla will kick off their fall football season with a
Kickoff Classic in late August.
