Humor Is Where You Find It......

I Fondly Remember When My Name

Was "Gladys Over" For A Day


As I sat thinking about
my column this week, so
many ideas came to mind.
But, none of them had any
"real" humor in them. So,
I sat, thinking of humor-
ous things that have hap-
pened in my life, (and
there are so many), but,
one especially funny occa-
sion kept "popping up."
If I've written about
this before, and you've
heard it already, please
forgive me, but I just enjoy
thinking about it and re-
living the occasion many
times myself, so I decided
to tell it to those of you
who have never heard it,
thinking it might brighten
your day.
Before I get into the
story itself, I read once
where a popular speaker
confessed that he never
told a funny story to an au-
dience unless he felt that
the majority of them had
heard it before. He said
that familiar stories are
best for two reasons.
First, those who had al-


ready heard them felt an
inner satisfaction over
knowing the "latest"
jokes. Second, they felt
more comfortable during
the telling because they
are ready to prove their
own sophistication by
knowing just when to
burst out laughing.
Such is the case today
I hope you will laugh with
me again, or for the first
time.
And, if you don't actu-
ally laugh out loud, I at
least hope it will bring a
smile to your face, as it
does to mine every time I
think about the occur-
rence.
When I as still in col-
lege at the University of
Florida in Gainesville, a
sorority (AOII) sister of
mine was getting married
in Orlando, so a few of us
drove down to be with her
on this special occasion.
There were about six
of us who arrived early for
the wedding, so we went to
the back of the church
where Mary Lee and her
bridesmaids, (some whom
e, W ew),' ere dre'simg.
We visited with everyone,
and met Mary Lee's moth-
er and sisters.
Then, we went back
into the church and
watched the beautiful
wedding.
The reception was
held at the church social
hall next to the church.
We stood in the long line
of people to get to greet
the bride, her brides-
maids, and her family
As my sister, Roberta,
and I, and our sorority sis-
ters got to the front of the
receiving line, and I greet-
ed her mother, (who was


first in the line), I decided,
instead of repeating my
name to her, since I had
just met her earlier, to just
say to her, '"Aren't you glad
it's over?"
Mary Lee's mother, as
is the rule in etiquette,
then turned to her hus-
band, and said, "Honey, I
want you to meet Gladys
Over, a friend of Mary
Lee's from college.
Mary Lee's father then
turned to the next person
in line and said, "This is
Gladys Over, Mary Lee's
friend from the University
of Florida.
That person turned to
the next person, also intro-
ducing me as "Gladys
Over."
This went all the way
down the receiving line.
My sister and I, and all
of our friends, were laugh-
ing so hard it was embar-
rassing to us. We were
laughing so hard we could-
n't even stop to correct the
wrong introductions. I
just greeted about 15 peo-
ple as "Gladys Over."
So, by the'end of-the
;r exception, .1 ik -ladys
Over" to all of Mary lose's
family, and friends, and I
still laugh every time I
think of that day
I felt like the lady at an
occasion when the hostess
said to her, "So, sorry, but I
didn't get your name."
"I know that you did-
n't," said the lady, "but you
certainly tried hard
enough."
They didn't get my
name right in the receiv-
ing line that day at my
friend's wedding, but they
sure tried hard enough.
"Nuff said...Bye for
now.. See 'ya.

our country as a whole. Patients who require transfu-
sions need blood, and Americans are needed to give
blood at least once this summer."
The main sources of blood donors during the
months of May through September are both college
and high school students. However, during the sum-
mer months blood donations drop due to summer va-
cation. The need for blood donations remains con-
stant, no matter what month it is. For example, the
American Red Cross Blood Services Southern Region
need 1,200 donations every weekday to meet the de-
mand of the hospital. Those demands would be met if
all eligible donors gave blood twice a year.
Volunteer donors are the only source for the blood
needed by approximately four million people in the
United States each year. Everyday, patients with can-
cer, sickle cell anemia, blood disorders, and many oth-
er illnesses must receive blood transfusions to sur-
vive. To help ensure that these patients receive their
transfusions, the American Red Cross Society are
asking for 50 or more donors and will give a special
"Make America Stronger" t-shirt to every participant
at the June 21 donation.
Potential donors must be at least 17 years of age,
weigh no less than 110 pounds, and present a photo ID
to donate blood. For other locations to make a dona-
tion call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE (448-3543) or visit www.red-

Secure


The Border


n A


Ever since this Bush-Kennedy-McCain immigration
bill appeared last month from the "smoke-filled room,"
I've held my water and tried to look at this legislation
objectively That's not too easy to do since the "great
compromise" did not go through the normal process of
committee hearings and debate. That alone made me
suspicious.
I try not to succumb to cliches such as the word
"amnesty" because I know that what is amnesty to one
person is not amnesty to another. If the discussion goes
no further, then we are caught in a web of semantics -
hardly a worthwhile endeavor.
I am sympathetic to the need for the type of work-
force that these illegals represent and favor a guest
worker program of some type. I acknowledge that
many of the immigrants come to the United States for
work and are loyal to their home country Good for
them. They don't have any desire to become U.S. citi-
zens. Other illegals do want citizenship and we must be
careful how we handle them.
I'm equally cognizant that securing our border is es-
sential to national security Without a "gate" and prop-
er scrutiny for new citizens and guest workers, we have
lost our sovereignty Failure to accomplish this has nev-
er been in our national interest, and it is especially dan-
gerous in today's environment with al-Qaeda jihadists
and drug smugglers.
There are two very good reasons why I reject this
compromise and instead, say that first and foremost, we
must secure our borders before addressing any other
immigration issue.
First when it comes to border security, the politi-
cians inside the Washington belfway have no credibili-
ty with the American people ... zip, zero, nada! They are
out of touch with the people they are supposed to rep-
resent. Senators Nelson and Martinez are you listen-
ing when you say that this immigration bill is first
about border security, we don't believe you. Why shoulM
we? You failed in 1986 and now the problem is even
greater. You either cannot or will not secure our bor-
ders, especially the southern one with Mexico, so you
must prove to the American people that you are both ca-
pable and sincere in what you say. If you can demon-
strably show that border security is making a differ-
ence, then we can talk about addressing the other im-
migration problems we face.
Second, this reform legislation has many different
parts that are interdependent. When you change one as-
pect of immigration, it has an effect on other parts that
are unknown. Yet, our distinguished senators have
looked into their crystal ball and decided to "solve"
everything with one bill one lucky throw of the dice.
Just what do you think of their chances for success? If
the legislation leads to unintended and negative conse-
quences which happened after 1986, who do you think
will pay the price for Congress' rush to judgment and
resultant mistakes?
When I was an 11-year old Boy Scout, I learned that
the cardinal rule of first aid is to stop the bleeding. It
doesn't do any good to treat the victim for shock if he
bleeds to death before the paramedics arrive. That's
what is happening across our southern border with
Mexico we are bleeding ... in some places, hemorrhag-
ing. Given this criteria, the Congress would not qualify
for award of the Tenderfoot badge!
The whole idea behind border security ,is to not al-
low a problem to fester and become worse over time.
Please note my use of terms border security This is
about a lot more than building a fence, hiring more
agents, buying a few reconnaissance drones, etc. It
probably includes some of all of those things and more,
but it is performance based and it means slowing the
flood to a trickle. It begins with measuring the flow of
immigrants (detection) and putting our efforts to stop
them (detention and deportation) in the right places us-
ing the most effective means.
I fully realize that we will never be able to stop the
leak completely along our 2100 mile southern border,
but we can sure do a lot better than we have over the
past twenty years. In the meantime, we can measure
the effect of improved border security on other immi-
gration problems, prioritize each, and tackle them in or-
der. But first and foremost, secure the border.

and was assisted a short time later by Corporal Alan R.
Whigham. Corporal Whigham searched for Wood on
foot, while Deputy Nagy conducted preliminary inter-
views.
Sergeant David E. Harper, the shift supervisor, also
responded to the scene. Sergeant Harper, a team leader
for the Sheriff's Office S.WA.T. team, requested addi-
tional assistance from the Madison Correctional Insti-
tution K-9 team and a callout of the other S.WA.T. team
members.
After notifying the S.WA.T. commander, Lieutenant
Mark W Joost, Joost requested that reserve deputies
also be requested to secure a perimeter.
After the arrival of the K-9 team, which consisted of
Sergeant Todd Richardson, Correctional Officer Timmy
Robinson, Correctional Officer Darren Rye and Correc-
tional Officer Donnie Bass, the K-9 team members and
Sheriff's Office S.WA.T. personnel started tracking
Wood's shoe impressions on the east side of a large
cornfield located just west of the victim's residence.
At approximately 11:35 p.m., Sergeant Charlie Dick-
ey, who was assisting with perimeter security, radioed
that a white male just fled from him into the southwest
section of the cornfield. Sergeant Dickey spotted Wood
walking east on the north shoulder of Hwy 90, heading
back towards the victim's residence.
Sergeant Dickey confronted Wood and instructed
him to get down. Wood stated, "You're just going to have
to shoot me!" Wood then fled into the nearby cornfield.
Lt. Joost positioned several team members on the
east side of the cornfield, between the cornfield and the
victim's residence. Lt. Joost then proceeded to Sergeant


Women Must Plan
(Extra) Carefully for Retirement
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
If you're a woman, you have to be actively
involved in your financial preparations for retire-
ment and that's true whether you're single or mar-
ried. As a woman, you have at least two special con-
siderations associated with your retirement planning:
You've got a longer life expectancy. Women typ-
ically outlive men by about seven years, according to
the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics and
more years of life mean more expenses.
You may have less money in your retirement
plan. Women drop out of the work force for an aver-
age of 12 years to care for young children or aging
parents, according to the Older Women's League, a
research and advocacy group. This time away from
the workforce results in women accumulating much
less money in their employer-sponsored retirement
plans, such as 401(k)s.
The prospect of a long, underfunded retirement
is not a pleasant one. Fortunately, there's much you
can do to avoid this fate. For starters, know what's
going on in your financial situation. If you are mar-
ried, share the responsibility of making investment
decisions. What are your retirement goals? Are the
two of you investing enough to eventually achieve
these goals? And where is the money going? You
must know the answers to these questions.
You'll also need to know what you could expect
to receive if your husband dies before you. As a sur-
viving spouse, you will likely inherit all your hus-
band's assets, unless he has specifically named other
people such as grown children from an earlier mar-
riage as beneficiaries.
Nonetheless, you can't just assume that all
sources of income that your husband receives will
automatically roll over to you. For example, if your
husband were to die before you, you wouldn't get his
Social Security payments in addition to your own,
although you could choose to collect his payments
instead of yours. But if you both earned close to the
same income, you might not get much of an increase
in Social Security benefits.
In any case, whether you're married or single,
here are some moves that can benefit you:
"Max out" on your 401(k). If you can afford it,
invest the maximum amount into your 401(k) and
increase your contributions every time your salary
goes up. Your 401(k) provides you with tax-deferred
earnings and a variety of investment options.
Contribute to an IRA. Even if you have a
401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan,
you might be eligible to contribute to a traditional or
Roth IRA. A traditional IRA offers the potential for
tax-deferred earnings, while a Roth IRA potentially
grows tax-free, provided you don't take withdrawals
until you're 59-1/2 and you've had your account at
least five years. You can fund an IRA with virtually
any investment you choose.
Do whatever it takes to help ensure a comfort-
able retirement and the sooner you start planning,
the better.

Dickey's location with the K-9 team thinking that they
would flush the suspect towards the waiting perimeter
officers.
K-9 "Spicey" quickly picked up the suspect's scent
and they tracked the suspect in an easterly direction to-
wards the perimeter officers.
After tracking into the cornfield approximately one-
eighth of a mile, "Spicey's" handler, Sergeant Richard-
son, pointed out one of the suspect's fresh shoe impres-
sions. The corn was so thick that visibility was limited
to five yards with a flashlight. Correctional Officers Tim
Robinson, Darren Rye, and Donnie Bass were off to
Sergeant Richardson's left flank, and Lt. Joost was off to
his right flank.
As Lt. Joost monitored the corn rows to his right, he
observed a subject wearing a black t-shirt, kneeling
down and benting forward, in an attempt to conceal
himself in an adjacent row. Lt. Joost could not see the
subject's face or hands. He informed the subject that if
he made any sudden moves that it could result in bodily
harm to his person. The subject made a belligerent
statement and got up to sprint in an easterly direction.
The subject, who was later identified as being Wood,
stumbled briefly as he fled.
Lt. Joost intercepted Wood and wrestled him to the
ground as he resisted violently Wood attempted to push
and shove free. As Wood's arms flailed violently Lt.
Joost's shotgun and handgun were in close proximity to
Wood.
Lt. Joost struck Wood in his right side with his
clinched right fist several times. At this point, Sergeant
Richardson grasped Wood in a headlock and the other
K-9 team members assisted in restraining the Wood
while Lt. Joost handcuffed him. Wood continued to
struggle violently until after he was handcuffed. From
that point on, he was cooperative.
After being arrested, Wood repeatedly stated, "She
finally made me mad enough to take a shotgun to her
head."
Wood was then turned over to Deputy Tim Nagy for
transport to the jail.
Wood was charged with aggravated assault with a
firearm, felony attempted murder, burglary while
armed and resisting an officer without violence.
Wood remains in the Madison County Jail at the
time of this report.

Fru-Con is pleased to announce the
retirement of one of the companies
most loyal and dedicated employees.
William (Son) Turner Jr. announced he
plans to retire after 50 years of

majority of his time with Watkins,
rapidly moving from apprentice, to
journeyman, to foreman and finally to
labor general foreman, the position he


held with Fru-Con until his retirement.
Although Son Turner has made many
valuable contributions to the labor

siding. The meeting came to order at 12
o'clock. Speakers from the Health De-
partment discussed at length the upcom-
ing immunization fair they are having.
Brenda Newman, a Kiwanis member
and ARNP at the Health Department, in-
troduced Donna Davis, Kathy Meldrem,
Bonnie Webb, and Linda O'Brian, who
spoke about the immunization fair.
Madison is ranked 63 out of 67 coun-
ties in Florida for immunization rates.
According to Donna Davis, immuniza-
tion nurse, young parents don't under-
stand the importance of immunizations.
Children will get a few of their first
shots, but after those, the frequency
drops off.
The State of Florida requires 15
shots for children between zero and
two years of age. Those include:
4 DTPs (Diphtheria, Tetanus,
Pertussis)
3 Polio
4 Hib (Haemophilus Influenza

Madison County Mos-
quito Control has been
working in Greenville
with the Road Depart-
ment on "Habitat Reduc-
tion." Together they have
dug up and cleared out the
canals in an attempt to re-
duce the population of
mosquitoes by destroying
their habitats.
"Get rid of anything
that will hold water. Old
tires, bird baths, and pot-
ted plants," said Ron
Mandziara, the Mosquito
Control Coordinator for
Madison. The breeding
site for mosquitoes is on
the surface in fresh or any
stagnant water. Eliminat-
ing that water source will
help to reduce the popula-
tion of mosquitoes
around the home.
A mosquito has an av-
erage size of 16 mm (0.6
inch) and weighs only
about 2 to 2.5 mg (0.03 to
0.04 grain). Because they
are so small, most mos-
quito species are noctur-
nal because the sun will
dry them out. During the
day they stay in shrub-
bery Keep potted plants,
bushes, etc. to a minimum
to reduce the infestation
,of -mosquitoes. I
For residents who
have bodies of water near
their home, purchase a
mosquito dunk, available
at Home Depot. The mos-
quito dunk is a circular
object that is placed on a
fork and put into the wa-
ter to dissolve. The chemi-
cal then kills the larva
that will grow into adult
mosquitoes.
Whenever official
complaints start to come
in at the Mosquito Control
offices, the department
starts to ground spray
The department has
three spray trucks and
with Mandziara being the
only formal. Mosquito
Control employee, em-
ployees from the Recy-
cling Department come in
part-time to help with the
spraying.
The name of .the spray
is Aqua Reslin, a
promestrin chemical that
is used in quick sprays.
Quick sprays contain .2
percent of the chemical
promestrin, while Aqua
Reslin contains 2 percent.


I


The chemical does not
harm animals, but is
detrimental to fish.
In addition to spray-
ing for mosquitoes, the
Mosquito Control depart-
ment also treats the wa-
ter for mosquitoes. When
the waters begin to flood,
Gambusia (mosqui-
tofish) are put into the
water to reduce the popu-
lation of mosquitoes by


feeding on the larva.
The office of the
Madison County Mosqui-
to Control is open Mon-
day through Thursday, 8
a.m. to 1 p.m. To make an
official complaint, call
850-973-6142 and spraying
should begin in the area.
However, Mosquito Con-
trol cannot go on private
property to spray for
mosquitoes.


Mosquito 101
By Ashley Bell
Greene Publishing. Inc.
A mosquito, commonly called skeeto, squito, and
skeeter. is a type of insect that is part of the family
Culicidae. Unlike common theory, only female mos-
quitoes bite and suck blood from mammals. They use
the protein from the blood to produce their offspring.
Both females and males are nectar-feeders. However,
males don't bite.
Female mosquitoes find their "victims" by scent.
Their primary attraction is to carbon dioxide,'found
in exhaled breath. In addition to carbon dioxide, they
are also attracted to some substances found in sweat
and various body odors.
In most female mosquito breeds, the mouthparts
form a long snout for piercing the skin of mammals
to suck the blood. The mosquito snout is highly
jagged, which leaves a minimal ntunber of points of
contact with the skin being pierced. This in fact re-
duces the nerve stimulation to the point where the
bite was inflicted, and is typically not felt. On the
other hand. the male mosquitoes' mouthpar.ts,are jot
genetically made for blood sucking. -..
A female "bite" is usually undetected.
Following the bite. the immune system reacts,
causing the mammal to feel the sensation. With the
first bite, there is no reaction. For multiple bites, the
body's immune system develops antibodies for the
saliva and anti-coagulants the female injects into the
bite and the bite becomes inflamed and itchy within
24 hours.
Two to three days after feeding, a female can lay
approximately 200 eggs. which she lays on the sur-
face of water. The water can be anywhere, in a pond,
puddle, or salt marsh. The eggs float around until
they latch onto grass and two to three days later, they
hatch into wrigglers (larvae) and breathe through a
siphon at the tail end. After they hatch, they feed on
tiny plants and animals (including other mosquito
larvae) that populate the water. The larvae must live
in the water for seven to 14 days, depending on the
water's temperature.
Once they have eaten enough, the wrigglers be-
come pupae. A pupa breathes through thoracic
"horns" attached to the thoracic spiracles. In less
than a week, they change one last time, into an adult
mosquito. The newly formed adult mosquito must
rest on the surface of the water to dry and let all its
parts harden before it is able to fly. Female mosquito
can live up to 25 days, while males only live for one
week.
The approximate time to go through all stages of
change highly depends on the temperature and the
breed of mosquito: generally it takes about 14 days or
less in warm weather. In other mosquito types this
cycle can take anywhere from four to 30 days.

At the Rotary Club
meeting held June .13, the
Club welcomed Brittany
Bezick, Rotary essay con-
test winner, to speak at
their meeting before the
panel discussion on prop-
erty tax reform.
The panel included
Cheryl Archambault, Joe
Boyles, Mark Branham,
and Ed Meggs.
"It was a great oppor-
tunity for me to go out and
see how history has effect-
ed Madison County," said
Brittany about her experi-
ences while writing the es-
say Alston Kelley, who also
introduced Jim Catron,
Moderator for the Panel,
introduced Brittany
Jim Catron, City Com-
missioner, District Three,
then spoke a few words
and introduced Cheryl Ar-
chambault. Cheryl dis-
cussed how Madison
County lives on a limited
budget.
The panel discussed


the potential property tax
reform and how it will af-
fect the community
The proposal includes
a tax cut that will include
saving 31.6 billion dollars
over the next five years.
This is tax cut is poten-
tially the largest tax cut in
Florida's history.
Additionally, there will
be 15.6 billion dollars in
immediate tax relief and
reform and 16 billion dol-
lars in further tax relief
and reform, which will to-
tal at the 31.6 billion dol-
lars
Under the 15.6 billion
dollars immediate tax re-
lief and reform (statutory),
all cities and counties will
be required to cut taxes in
the 2007-2008 fiscal year.
Also, all local government
will make an additional
cut of three, five, seven,

1941 speech to Congress by Franklin De-
lano Roosevelt. The memorial was de-
signed by Walter Russell a given to Madi-

Madison's City Park, dubbed Four Freedoms Park after one of the many
monuments, was built on land donated by Madison Livingston. The land the
park sits on was originally the site of a Seminole Indian War era blockhouse,
erected to protect women, children, and the elderly during threats.

WAR MEMORIAL


Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Jessica Higginbotham
A memorial commemorating the lives of Madison County men lost in WWII, the
Korean War, and the Vietnam War, stands at the Courthouse facing south in the park,
a project headed by veteran Bernard Wilson. The name of each Madison County man
who died in each conflict is listed on the simple marble stone. In Vietnam, 47,424 men
lost their lives. In World War II, 291,557 men died for freedom. In the Korean War,
33,741 Americans died. In Madison, those numbers. were much smaller with 24
Madison-men lost in WWII, seven in Korea, and another three lives lost in Vietnam.
With death tolls amounting to well over thirty-thousand in each war, a war memorial
is a stark reminder that no town went untouched by the horror.

the Woman's Christian Temperance Union.
The monument was placed in the park in
January of 1952 as a reminder of Christian
heritageh id values; The WCTU was cre-
ated in 1847 as women grew .more and
more concerned about the effects of alco-
hol on their families and society. Though
Prohibition was repealed, the WCTU still
fights alcoholism and other drugs.

The Florida State Baptist Convention monu-
ment is located on the southeast corner of the park,
erected in 1946. In 1843, Concord Missionary Bap-
tist Church helped to form the Florida Baptist Asso-
ciation. The Convention was organized in the
Clifton Mansion, the home of R. J. Mays. In Novem-
ber of 1854, the Association held its annual meeting
in the Clifton Mansion. Committees were formed to
work with other Associations, thereby creating a
Convention. The Clifton Mansion, birthplace of the
Florida Baptist Convention, is located on Highway
146, near Lovett.

The Confederate Soldier stands proudly in the center
of Madison's park as a reminder of one of the most bru-
tal wars in American history. When the park was first
built, it was named Confederate Memorial Park, in honor
of those who gave their lives in the "War Between the
States." Madison alone lost at least 289 men in the War.

Originally a necessary part of traveling, camping
has made the metamorphic shift to a recreational activ-
ity. From Native Americans to Cowboys of the Old
West, camping is now the chic thing to do on the week-
ends.
GPS, cell phones, portable stoves, three room tents,
and coolers have made roughing it not so tough.
Campers now days use all of the same amenities as in
their homes.
'An integral part of any camping trip is the tent.
Typically a tent that is advertised as being "one person"
is barely large enough to fit that one person comfortably,
so a two-person tent is recommended. Following the
same line of thought, a two-person tent is rarely large
enough for two people, so it'd be better to use a three-

person tent.
When campers first arrive at the chosen site, the
tent goes up. The land needs to be at a slight incline
so that water won't puddle under the tent and ruin the
experience.
Following the setup of the tent, things need to be
unpacked and arranged, and the area for the campfire
must be selected.
Remember, when camping, keep all food, fra-
grance, or any other items that might give off a strong
odor away from the living area of the camp site.
Woodland creatures are attracted by scents, and a
bear encounter could ruin any camping trip.
Whether camping for leisure or necessity, the ex-
perience can be enjoyable. Spooky stories or campfire
jam sessions are just the ticket when it comes to en-
tertainment.
Always remember to clean up all litter from a
campsite and dispose of it properly!

How To BuildAnd Maintain

The Perfect Fire
By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
As darkness falls on your quaint little campsite, you
feel yourself getting a little chilly... so, you build a spec-
tacular campfire.
WAIT! Do you
know how to build a
campfire? As any ex-
perienced camper will
inform you, campfire
building is more of an
art form than a smash -
and-go construction
job.
But where? Open,
flat ground, devoid of
undergrowth is the s
best place to build a
fire. Make sure there
are no stray twigs or
pine straw scattered on
the ground, and line
the area with stones or
dig a trench. Keep the A
diameter of the campfire less than three feet this is a
manageable size, should the fire get out of hand.
With what? Sticks! Forest Ranger Shane Wells says
that the best sticks to use for a campfire are about an
inch in diameter, and made out of pine or oak. Do not
under any circumstances use cherry or pecan branches.
These types of wood burn hot and tend to pop inces-
santly, showering campers and surrounding areas with
burning embers.
The idea is to lay out a bed of straw, then layer that
with smaller sticks, up to larger branches. Light the
straw with matches or a lighter, and stoke the fire to get
it going.
Ever so often, if the fire is getting low, add a few
more sticks and stoke it. Never use an accelerant such
as lighter fluid or gasoline on a fire. Always keep plen-
ty of water on hand to put out the fire.
The more efficient way to extinguish a fire is to
douse it with water, then smother it with dirt. Throw
some water on it, and then bury it. By cutting off the
oxygen to the fire, you take away a pivotal element of the
fire triangle.
If your campfire gets out of hand, call 911 immedi-
ately! Do not hesitate to call emergency services if you
cannot handle the spread of your fire.

How To Create The


Perfect S 'more
By Ashley Bell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
There are many ways to
create a S'more and the "per- ',
fect" way is only as perfect as.
the maker makes it. Use this
editorial as a mere guideline
and experiment with new in-
gredients and methods of
preparation. Ingredients call
for Honey Maid graham crack-
ers, Hershey's plain chocolate .
bars, and regular size marsh-
mallows.
Begin with building a
campfire with dry aged natural wood (do not use acceler-
ants). When the fire is nice and hot, break one graham crack-
er in half, using one half for the top and one for the bottom.
Next break off two pieces of the Hershey's chocolate bar and
place on the base of the graham cracker (indentations on the
chocolate bar measure out one piece). Set aside on a plate.
Now is the time to roast the marshmallow. Insert a clean
hot dog style roasting fork or long thin branch into the
marshmallow. Hold marshmallow three-to-twelve inches
above flames and rotate. When marshmallow is lightly
browned, remove from fire. Immediately place hot marsh-
mallow on top of the base cracker and chocolate, using the
top graham cracker to slide the marshmallow off of the
roasting fork or thin branch. Hot marshmallow will melt
chocolate pieces. Let sit until cool enough to eat. Et Voila!
S'more!
Extra Tips:
Do not place roasting fork or thin branch on ground! Dirt
will stick to the remaining marshmallow.
If marshmallow catches fire, blow it out. DO NOT wave
the marshmallow; it will send it flying in any direction and
may cause injury or fire.
You can use a microwave to make s'mores. Be sure to
watch the marshmallow closely it may explode in your mi-
crowave and cause a sticky mess.
Use additional ingredients such as bananas, peanut but-
ter, strawberries, pineapple, roasted peanuts, or different
types of chocolate such as Kit Kat bars, Reeses, etc. to put a
twist on the traditional S'more.

HEALTH & NUTRITION


Talcum Powder Stunts Growth C


Talcum powder has been used for generations to
soothe babies' diaper rash and freshen women's faces.
But University of Florida researchers report the house-
hold product has an additional healing power: The abili-
ty to stunt cancer growth by cutting the flow of blood to
metastatic lung tumors.
The study, published in the European Respiratory
Journal in April, reveals that talc stimulates healthy
cells to produce endostatin, a hormone considered the
magic bullet for treating metastatic lung cancer.
The UF researchers say talc is an exciting new thera-
peutic agent for a cancer largely considered incurable.
"We found, to our surprise, that talc causes tumor
growth to slow down and actually decreases the tumor
bulk," said Veena Antony, M.D., a professor of pul-
monary medicine and chief of pulmonary and critical
care medicine at UF's College of Medicine. "Talc is able
to prevent the formation of blood vessels, thereby killing
the tumor and choking off its growth. The tumors ap-
peared to grow much slower and in some cases complete-
ly disappeared."
Scientists have only recently discovered that talcum
powder stunts tumor growth, though the mineral has
been used for almost 70 years to treat the respiratory
problems that accompany metastatic lung cancer. About
half of all patients accumulate fluid around the surface

of the lungs, a condition known as malignant pleural ef-
fusion.
"That fluid can press down upon the lung, impair the
breathing of the patient and cause the patient to feel very
short of breath," said Antony
Pleural effusions indicate that the cancer, which
might have started in the breast, lung or gastrointestinal
tract, has spread throughout the body The prognosisfor
the roughly 200,000 patients afflicted with this condition
is poor: Many die within six months.
To make life more bearable for these patients, doctors
close the extra space between the lung and the chest wall,
where the troublesome fluid collects. The trick is gluing
the two surfaces together. Talc is blown into the patients'
chest cavity to irritate the tissue and create tiny abra-
sions. When the lung tissue heals, it becomes perma-
nently adhered to the chest wall without impairing the
patients' breathing. The effects of the procedure, called
medical thoracoscopy with talc pleurodesis, are immedi-
ate and last a lifetime.
"Shortness of breath is a horrible way to die,"
Antony said. "The procedure spares the patient and the
family the misery of watching their loved one suffer. It's
been used very extensively in Europe but it's had slower
acceptance (in the United States), perhaps because of the
need to learn a new technology."
The Food and Drug Administration approved talc for
use in medical thoracoscopy in 2003, but UF is one of just
a handful of U.S. institutions that perform the outpatient
procedure on a routine basis.
Doctors have noticed that patients who undergo med-
ical thoracoscopy with talcum powder live up to 18
months longer than expected. To figure out why, Antony
compared lung fluid from 16 patients with malignant
pleural effusions before and after doctors dusted their
lungs with talc. The results were startling.
"We were surprised to find that talc has added bene-
fits besides causing scarring and taking away the fluid
that surrounds the lung," Antony said. "The cells that

)f Lung Tumors
cover the lining of the lung are stimulated by the pres-
ence of talc to produce a factor that inhibits the growth
of blood vessels and kills the tumor cells themselves."
Less than one day after treatment with talc, patients
began producing 10-fold higher levels of endostatin, a
hormone released by healthy lung cells. Endostatin pre-
vents new blood vessels from forming, slows cell growth
and movement, and even induces nearby tumor cells to
commit suicide. All of these make it hard for tumors to
grow and spread into healthy lung tissue.
When endostatin was first discovered in 1997, doctors
hoped its tumor-fighting properties would lead to a cure for
cancer. But clinical trials have been disappointing, possibly
because most clinicians have injected the hormone direct-
ly into patients. The hormone breaks down in the body be-
fore it has a chance to slow the spread of cancer, Antony
said.
"It was there, it had a very short half life, it was gone,"
Antony said. "What we've done is caused the normal pleur-
al mesothelial cells to continue to produce endostatin. Talc
doesn't go away Talc stays in the chest cavity constantly
causing the normal cells to produce this factor that inhibits
the growth of the tumor."
The antitumor effects of talc appear to be long-lasting,
said Antony, who is continuing to investigate the long-term
outcomes of patients who have undergone talc pleurodesis.
"It surprised us that such a cheap, easily available
product, such an old-fashioned product, -can have benefits
to the patient and perhaps prolong the patient's life,"
Antony said.
Yossef Aelony, M.D., a clinical professor of respiratory
and critical care medicine at the Harbor-University of Cal-
ifornia at Los Angeles Medical Center, said the UF findings
are an important milestone.
"This work will undoubtedly have a significant influ-
ence on future clinical trials dealing with the treatment of
pleural malignancies, including lung cancer, mesothe-
lioma and metastatic adenocarcinoma involving the pleur-
al surfaces," Aelony said.

How Coffee Raises Cholesterol


Drinking your coffee
black or decaffeinated to
keep cholesterol in check?
Think again.
Cafestol, a compound
found in coffee, elevates
cholesterol by hijacking a
receptor in an intestinal
pathway critical to its regu-
lat on, said researchers
from Baylob College of
Medicine in a report that
appears in the July issue of
the journal Molecular En-
docrinology.
In fact, cafestol is the
most potent dietary choles-
terol-elevating agent
known, said David Moore,
M.D., professor of molecu-
lar and cellular biology at
BCM, and Marie-Louise
Ricketts, M.D., a postdoc-
toral student and first au-
thor of the report.
Cafetiere, or French press
coffee, boiled Scandinavian
brew and espresso contain
the highest levels of the-
compound, which is re-
moved by paper filters used
in most other brewing
processes. Removing caf-
feine does not remove
cafestol, however.
Studies by Martijn B.
Katan of Vriye Univeriteit
Amsterdam, Institute for
Health Sciences, The
Netherlands, indicate that
consuming five cups of
French press coffee per day
(30 milligrams of cafestol)
for four weeks raises cho-
lesterol in the blood 6 to 8
percent.
However, while the cho-
lesterol increase associated
with cafestol had been
identified previously main-
ly through the work of
Katan and his colleagues,
the mechanism by which it
acted remained a mystery.
It was a mystery that
Moore and Ricketts decid-
ed to address in the labora-
tory.
For a long time, Rick-
etts said she was stymied
because of paradoxical ef-
fects of cafestol in the liver.
However, the discovery of a
gene called fibroblast
growth factor 15 or FGF 15
opened the door to under-
standing how cafestol af-
fects farsenoid receptor X
or FXR in the intestine.
FXR was first identified as
a bile acid receptor in stud-
ies in several laboratories,
including Moore's.
"It is part of the body's
own way of regulating lev-


els of cholesterol," said
Ricketts.
Through research in
the test tube and in mice,
she and Moore found that
in the intestine, cafestol ac-
tivates FXR and induces
FGF15, which reduces the
effects of three liver genes
that regulat1.cholesterol
levels. While'1t is "sti.l-un-
clear whether cafestol it-
self reaches the liver, the
finding does confirm that
the effect of the compound
is in the intestine, which is
directly involved in the
transport of bile acids.
Moore's interest in
cafestol began several
years ago when his wife
read an article on coffee's
effect on cholesterol. She
suggested that he might
change his brewing
method, which involved a
permanent coffee filter.
The paper filters, the arti-
cle suggested, removed the
coffee oils, which contain
cafestol.
Moore researched the
problem, and found papers
by co-author Katan. He was
already working on FXR,
and began to think about
whether cafestol might be
affecting that signal in the
cholesterol pathway
Others who took part
in the work include: Mark

Lake Francis, came about through a part-
nership between the Madison County
Health Department and the City of Madi-
son. The purpose of this partnership
was to provide updated fitness equip-
ment along Lake Francis, because the
most recent data showed the percentage
of Madison County residents who were
not participating in vigorous physical ac-
tivity in 2005 was 80.3 % and 60 % were not
participating in moderate activity The
new equipment replaced older equip-
ment, increased safety and the variety of
exercise options available to residents.
The new equipment was installed to en-
courage more activity among adults and
youth in the county. Part of the agree-
ment was for the health department to
purchase the new fitness equipment and
the City of Madison to provide the up-
keep of it.
The equipment pieces include:
AIR WALKER


This equipment provides cardiovas-
cular benefits that are similar to vigor-
ous walking or running. It avoids impact
on feet, knees, hips and the lower back. It
stretches the hips and upper thighs more
than walking, or jogging.
BACK EXTENSION
Strengthens the muscles of the lower


back, as well as the gluteus and ham-
string areas. This will help improving
posture and stability
HIP TWISTER











Consists of a swivel stand which ro-
tates as the arms and shoulders are held
square with the overhead hold. Strength-
ens the abdominal muscles.
HORIZONTAL BARS


Associated with chin-ups, an essen-
tial strength exercise and test of strength
to weight ratio. The bars are also used for
shoulder and arm stretching, improving
the grip, hanging leg lifts and to stretch
the lower back.
LEG PRESS


tern. This equipment provides three Leg
Press positions, each with a different
but moderate level of resistance.
PARALLEL BARS


Dips on this apparatus are one of the
most basic strength exercises, which
build triceps and shoulder strength. The
Parallel Bars also help support a number
of stretching exercises.
PUSH-UP BAR


Two exercise positions which host
one of the most basic and effective up-
perbody strength exercises.
STRENGTH & STRETCH BARS


6dM- _'1ML_-- M
Helps develop arm and shoulder pow-
er with a variety assisted pulling and
pushing exercises. Numerous stretching
exercises along with leg swings, lunges
and deep knee bends can be performed.
SELF-WEIGHTED ROWER

vide resistance. The rowing exercise
works the arm muscles.
SIT-UP BENCH


A raised surface and foot hold for ab-
dominal exercise. Builds the strength of
the abdominal muscles and the flexors of
the upper thigh.
WEIGHTLIFT


e I
Consists of a free bar weighing 25
kgs. or 55 lbs. It is held between steel
tracks for safety and security. Many exer-
cises can be performed, including the
standing press, squats, upright rows and
curls.
BOUNDING BARS

bounding from side to side, improving ag-
ile jumping skills and leg strength.

Madison County Carrier 13A


in'iVeh i cl Reossesion


When you finance or lease
a car, truck or other vehicle,
your creditor or lessor holds
important rights on the vehicle
until you've made the last loan
payment or fully paid off your
leasing obligation. These
rights are established by the
signed contract and by state
law. For example, if your pay-
ments are late or you default on
your contract in any way, your
creditor or lessor may have the
right to repossess your car.

In many states, including
Florida, creditors or lessors can
do this legally without going to
court or warning you in ad-
vance, as long as they do not
breach the peace. In addition,
your creditor or lessor may be
able to sell your contract to a
third party, called an assignee,
who may have the same rights
and responsibilities as the orig-
inal creditor or lessor.

However, some state laws,
including Florida's, limit the
ways a creditor or lessor can re-
possess and sell a vehicle. If
any rules are violated, the cred-
itor or lessor may be required
to pay you, the consumer, mon-
etary damages.

Seizing the Car

In many states, including
Florida, your creditor or lessor
has legal authority to seize your
vehicle as soon as you default
on your loan or lease, which


could be a matter of days or
weeks. Because state laws dif-
fer, consumers must read their
contract to find out what con-
stitutes a default in their specif-
ic situation. In virtually all
states, failure to make a pay-
ment on time or to meet other
contractual responsibilities,
such as not keeping insurance
in effect, are considered de-
faults. Most vehicles are repos-
sessed when payments are not
made on time and most often it
is as little as being two pay-
ments behind.

If your creditor or lessor
has agreed to change your pay-
ment date or any other contrac-
tual obligations, it's possible
that the terms of your original
contract may no longer apply.
Such a change may be made
orally or in writing. It's best to
get any changes in writing be-
cause oral agreements are diffi-
cult to prove.

If you default on your
loan, you must know that the
law in Florida allows the credi-
tor or lessor to repossess your
car., Creditors or lessors hire
people who are allowed on
your property, by day or at
night, to seize your car without
letting you know in advance.
These people are known as
"REPO GUYS." Their job is to
legally 'steal' your car away
from you. They usually do not
want you to know about it be-
cause most people would ob-


ject or put up a fight and they
don't want that to happen, even
though the law may be on their
side.

However, the law doesn't
allow your creditor or lessor to
commit a breach of the peace in
connection with repossession.
Removing a car from a closed
garage without permission usu-
ally constitutes a breach of the
peace. If the car is parked in a
place where any member of the
public could gain access to it,
without breaking a lock or
committing a forcible entry
onto or into the property, is
usually permitted, too.

Creditors or lessors who
breach the peach in seizing
your car may be required to
compensate you if they harm
you or your property. A con-
sumer who stands in front of a
car and refuses to move, cannot
be physically forced to move.
If a REPO GUY runs over a
consumer's toe in the process
of repossessing a car, that is a
breach of peace. Threatening
to do harm, committing an as-
sault, committing.a battery, or a
burglary or virtually any crime
in the process of repossessing a
vehicle is a breach of the peace.

Selling the Car

After a vehicle' is repos-
sessed, assuming it is repos-
sessed properly, a creditor may
dispose of the vehicle in a


ii


"commercially reasonable
fashion", which usually means
at an auction attended only by
people in the business of buy-
ing cars cheap (!) and then fil-
ing suit against the consumer
for the difference between what
was owed on the car and what
the vehicle sold for. In some
cases, the consumer could end
up owing almost as much as
what he or she paid for the car
without having the car any
longer (!), so consumers must
be extremely wary and not al-
low a situation to occur.

Therefore, while creditors
have the right to repossess a ve-
hicle if a consumer fails to
make payments on time or oth-
erwise breaches a contract for
the purchase of a vehicle, con-
sumers have rights, too.
