The award honors one out-

category was for "open cir-

with other employees
from much larger weekly

"I'm honored to re-

said. "To be a reporter at a

have to love the job. There
is something new every

Corporal Josh Harris, Deputy Jimmy F Fletcher and

Lieutenant Joost observed the vehicle pull in front of

and her 14-year-old daughter exited the right front pas-

Lieutenant Joost observed the subject making
furtive movements, so he pointed his shotgunat him and
instructed him to show his hands.
The subject was then directed out of the vehicle and
into a prone handcuffing position as the marked patrol
vehicles converged. After Sergeant Deno, Corporal An-
drews and Corporal Harris arrived as backup, Stevens
was taken into custody without further incident:
No firearm was located within Stevens' immediate
area of control. Stevens had no identification on him,

from all over their own state. At the end of the judging
by the journalists, who are all members of the Florida
Press Association, the entries were turned over to two
Pennsylvania Press Association employees and to two
journalism professors at the University of Florida.
Earlier in the year, Bembry and Greene represented
Greene Publishing, Inc. at the judging for the two largest
categories in Florida at Florida Press Association head-
quarters in Tallahassee.
At the banquet in Tallahassee, a DVD presentation
was shown that explained the judging procedures and
announced the winners. Footage from the Tallahassee
judging was shown and Greene received a round of ap-
plause when she was shown on the DVD, stating, "Flori-
da has the best photographers in the world."
Greene judged the photography entries, along with
Vanessa Fultz, of Lee. Fultz is an employee of The
Suwannee Democrat. She is the daughter of Kirk and
Debbie Pittman of Lee.
"Judging was extremely difficult," Bembry said.
"There are so many talented writers in the state."
Bembry helped judge various writing categories,
along with Timothy Croft, editor of the Port St. Joe Star.

I am not a supporter of John Edwards, the former
senator and vice presidential candidate who is running
for the top job once again. However, I want to borrow
the title of his stump speech "Two Americas" and add
my own interpretation.
I reject Edwards' theme of Two Americas divided
between rich and poor. This idea ignores the great
American middle class and promotes class warfare
which is not only divisive but contrary to what the Bible
teaches us. But the more that I think about it, the more
it appears to me that there are Two Americas. One
America is best defined by big city liberalism while the
other America reflects the values of small town conser-
vatism although you can find liberals and conservatives
in any setting. Let me give you some examples of how
both camps view a variety of issues.
One America prefers collective responsibility over
personal responsibility Rather than take responsibility
for my own actions, I can always get my neighbor to
shoulder the blame or pick up the tab. In the other
America, individual rights and responsibility go hand-
in-hand. Before I look to anyone else for an answer, I
must first look in the mirror.
One America embraces taxes while the other is sus-
picious of every tax that a politician or special interest
might propose. The tax theme is inherent in the re-
sponsibility issue: if you believe in personal responsi-
bility, then you look to yourself first. If you believe in
collective responsibility, then you look to government
assistance which requires more taxes. Invariably the
people calling for more taxes will shoulder very little of
the burden which reinforces the idea that it is easier to
spend someone else's money rather than your own.
One America looks to the United Nations for securi-
ty while the other America trusts our security in the
hands of American troops wearing the American flag
on their uniform. By contrast, this America not-only
frequently rejects the UN approach but does everything
in their power to identify corrupt UN practices and hold
One America believes that the United States Consti-
tution is a living, breathing document and, has.notrou-,
ble with a judge who "interprets" the Constitution ...t
provided they agree with the interpretation. The other'
America sees a real danger in "judicial activism" of any
stripe. They firmly believe in a constructionistt" inter-
pretation that the only way to change what the consti-
tution says is by amendment.
One America sees the struggle against Islamic ter-
rorism as a law enforcement issue while the other
America sees it as a matter of national security. The
aforementioned John Edwards has branded the War on
Terrorism as a "bumper sticker slogan."
One America sees the strength of the nation in gov-
ernment while the other America believes that strength
is found in private enterprise and capitalism. In the
first America, larger government and more regulation
is the mantra. The other America believes exactly the
Religion is another place where the two Americas
differ. One America is primarily secular in orientation
and sees worship in earthly terms trees, mountains,
animals, and such are the focus of their universe. The
other America is much more traditional in its approach
to religion and worship of the divine Creator. This
America upholds traditional values such as the sancti-
ty of life, marriage, and strengthening the family.
In a whole host of other issues like health care, im-
migration, education, and climate change, the two
Americas take widely differing positions. One America
will "feel" the best approach while the other America
will concentrate on facts to bolster their case.
There is a tendency to think that the vision of these
two Americas is cast in stone and the "twain shall not
meet." Actually, there is movement and some people
hop from one side to the other, but predominantly most
of us besides the 20 percent undecided fall on one side
or the other. You can probably guess which side I am
comfortable with, but the other side feels just as strong-
ly about their position.
The division between the two Americas is as old as
the country itself. Today the tug-of-war that is going on
between these two visions of America is the political
stage. While we observe most of this at the federal lev-
el, it occurs at state and local levels as well. As always,
the pendulum swings back and forth.

Why Should You Invest?
Here are Five Good Reasons
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
We love lists. We want to know the 10 best pizza
places in town and the 10 worst dressed celebrities at the
Oscars. We long to find the top 10 movies of the year and
the 10 most popular songs of the century. We want to
know about the richest people in the country and the
cheapest brunches in our city. In short, the list of lists
.ould goinrfo~a. Awg utithere's alwaysrbom for.
one more_. ;sp l.t'sjpok at;heTgp:.Five Reasohs to Invest.
Here they are, in no particular order of importance:
1. Investing can help you enjoy a comfortable
retirement. Most people need at least 80 percent of their
pre-retirement income to maintain a similar lifestyle dur-
ing retirement. You'll get some of your retirement income
from Social Security, but it almost certainly won't be
enough. To help meet your retirement income needs,
you'll need to invest regularly, both through your
employer-sponsored plan, such as a 401(k), and through
an IRA and other individual investments.
2. Investing can keep you ahead of inflation. Over
time, even a low rate of inflation can severely erode your
purchasing power. For example, suppose you currently
earn $50,000 per year, and you assume a 4.0 percent
inflation rate for the next 30 years. At that point, you
would need to earn the equivalent of more than $162,000
per year just to keep the standard of living you have
today. If you want to stay ahead of inflation, you will
unquestionably need to invest. And you'll need to keep in
mind that, when it comes to battling inflation, not all
investments -are created equal. Fixed-income vehicles,
such as Certificates of Deposit (CDs) and bonds may be
excellent choices for providing you with stability of prin-
cipal and current income, but, over time, only stocks
have significantly outperformed inflation. Consequently,
you will need at least some stock holdings in your port-
folio if you want to protect your long-term purchasing
3. Investing can help you prepare for emergencies.
If you need a new car, or you face an unexpected and
large medical bill, where will you get the money? By
setting up an emergency fund of six to 12 months' worth
of living expenses, and investing the money in a liquid
vehicle with strong protection of principal, you can help
prepare yourself for life's bumps in the road.
4. Investing can help you realize your dreams. If
you want to someday travel the world, own a vacation
home or even open your own business, you'll need suffi-
cient financial resources and that means you have to
save and invest throughout your working life. By follow-
ing a disciplined investment strategy and working with a
professional financial advisor, you may be able to some-
day turn your hopes into reality.
5. Investing can help you leave a legacy. You work
hard all your life but you're not doing it all for yourself.
If you have a family, you want to be able to leave some-
thing behind. You may also want to support a favorite
charitable organization. To be able to leave a financial
legacy when you're gone, you'll need to invest while
i So, there you.have them five very good reasons to
: be a lifetime investor. And the sooner you start, the bet-

The Annual Meeting of the Madison County Farm
Bureau is just a few short months away, and the local
board has again announced they are taking nomina-
tions for the Annual "George Townsend Good Neigh-
The local Farm Bureau has given this award for the
past 5 years to a much-deserving individual who has
been a truly "Good Neighbor" to those in our communi-
"George Townsend was a man who everyone re-
spected, and always had kind words for everyone who
came in contact with him," said Richard Terry, local
chairman for this year's Good Neighbor Award Com-
mittee. "The thing that really made Mr. George stand out
was his love for children. He always bent over back-
wards to help kids at the livestock show, or just in his
community Farm Bureau is honored to present our
"Good Neighbor Award" in honor and memory of Mr.
George Townsend," added Terry.
Anyone can nominate someone, and all you need to
do is write a short couple of paragraphs about that per-
son, and why they should they be considered for the
award, and deliver or mail to the local Farm Bureau of-
fice, not later than August 1, 2007. THE ABSOLUTE
DEADLINE IS AUGUST 1st.
The Judging will be done by a committee of the local
Farm Bureau, and the winner will be announced and
honored at the Madison Farm Bureau Annual Meeting
on the third Tuesday in September.

The Madison County Red Hat Society is pictured at ta recent gathering.

Greene Publishing, Inc.
"When I am an old woman I shall wear purple with a red hat that doesn't go and
doesn't suit me" is a quote derived from the poem "Warning" by Jenny Joseph. Sue
Ellen Cooper of Fullerton, California, established the idea for the Red Hat Society
from said poem and the purchase of a red fedora in Tucson.
Sue Ellen began giving embellished red hats out to her friends for special occa-
sions. Soon thereafter, they gave their friends red hats and so on,. and so on. Eventu-
ally, their "Red Hat Society" was forming. The next step was the purple dress, and a
venture out into public in full attire. The friends thought going out to tea would go
great with playing dress-up.
Rapidly, the group grew and it became hard to fit everyone around a tea table. As
a result, other interested people began to start their own chapters of red hatters and
hold their own tea parties.
The Red Hat Society was officially founded as a "dis-organization" in 1998. As of
2006, the Red Hat Society had approximately 1.5 million registered red hatters in over
40,000 chapters occupying the United States and 30 other countries.
The local chapter of the Red Hat Society was founded by Betty Williams in 2004.

Jean Brandies, Faye Browning, and Deanie Webb.
"I read about (the Red Hat Society) and thought it would be fun for women our age
to go out and just have fun," said founding mother Betty
Williams. The Madison Red Hat Society has 35 members
and all of them enjoy getting together and meeting as a
The officers of the local chapter are Betty Williams,
Queen; Myra Valentine, Lady in Waiting; and Sylvia
Catron, Keeper of the Money.
Previously, the Madison Red Hatters have had lunch
at the Wiregrass Restaurant in Quitman, GA. and
shopped afterwards, the Grace Manor in Live Oak, and
the One Eleven Grill in Madison and shopped at the lo-
cal stores afterwards. In addition to meeting for lunch,
the Red Hatters have also visited the Greenville Nursing
Home and the Lake Park of Madison Red Hatters. Al
The mission statement of the Red Hat Society is "to
gain higher visibility for women in our age group and to
reshape the way we are viewed by today's culture." S
There is only one firm rule that must be followed. S

to start making healthy
Whether: you have 12
weeks or six months be-
fore your wedding (or any
special occasion), you can
make a difference in the
way you look and feel. The
following tips offer ways
to help you not only get in
shape for the big day but
also stay fit for years-and
The Perfect Fit-As
your wedding day ap-
proaches, you can develop
a daily fitness routine.
While the immediate goal
is to be a fit and beautiful
bride, the true challenge is
maintaining a healthier
way of life long beyond
your wedding day Sticking
to an exercise plan can
help you jump-start a
lifestyle change that will
serve you well long into
your married life.
For example, Kathryn
Leigh of Orlando, Fla.
joined Weight Watchers
with her mom and sister
four months before her
wedding. Kathryn says,
"My 17 pound weight loss
made such a difference in
how I looked in my wed-
ding dress and in my wed-
ding photos but beyond
that I am a much happier,
more confident person. I
am happier as a person
and that makes me a bet-

kitchen items will prepare
you for a lifetime of
healthy eating. Don't re-
quest oversized dishware

will encourage overeating
down the road. Remember
to register for cookware
that makes preparing
healthy cuisines easy, such
as nonstick pans, a steam-
er and an indoor grill.
things get down to the
wire, stress can become a
factor for everyone in-
volved in the wedding
planning process and can
easily lead to overeating.
Take a moment for your-
self whether it is a walk
around the block or your
favorite yoga class at the
honeymoon is all about
relaxing and celebrating
your new commitment to
each other, your healthy
lifestyle doesn't have to be
left at home. Put on your

for every couple to discov-

tinue with the good habits
learned during the wed-
ding planning process.
Consider making the
weekly Weight Watchers
meeting "Date Night," go
to the meeting and then
out to a healthy dinner or
Settling Into Life-It is
hard to resist pampering
a new partner with home-
cooked meals like Mom
used to make or snuggling
up in front of the.TV with
a bowl of buttered pop-
corn or ice cream.But in-
stead, focus on truly tak-
ing care of each other. Try
a bike ride to a park, fol-
lowed by a picnic. Instead
of the traditional fried
chicken and potato salad,
substitute fresh melon
wedges, cold pasta salad
and a small dessert. Also
consider taking a low-fat
cooking class together,
joining a volleyball team
or taking dancing

before your wedding,
you're beginning a very

both your health and your
happiness as a newlywed.

made (loose hair or a chignon?). But one detail that
brides tend to overlook is what kind of fragrance to
When it comes to this intricate detail, designer Vera

fragrance remains with her long after the ceremony is

whatever scent you choose-this is no time for surprises.
The Big Day-On your wedding day, don't apply per-

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Our Community public water system recently had a violation of a drinking water
rule. Although the public health was not at risk, as our customers, you have a right to
know what happened and what we did to correct the situation.
The Town routinely sampled for the required contaminants, however our contract lab
in Gainesville, failed to analyze for one of the contaminants. This put the Town of
Greenville in violation of monitoring and reporting requirements. The contaminant
was Cyanide which is required to be sampled once every three years.
When a violation occurs, the Department of Environmental Protection mandates the
following statements be brought to your attention. However, in this case, your'drink-
ing water safety and quality was not jeopardized.
* Some people -who drink water containing cyanide well in excess of the MCL over *
many years could
experience nerve damage or problems with their thyroid,
*Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to these contaminants can
alternative sources of water for ingestion.
What was done?
Upon learning of the laboratory error, we had another sample of the Town of
Grheville's drinking ater tested by the lab. It was teM d fbr Ctaide and the resill
was good. In fact, the test result showed it was not only below the Maximum Contam-
inant Level but was undetectable.
What does this mean?
There is no risk to anyone's health due to this occurrence. If there had been, you
would have been notified immediately.
For more Information, please contact Ken Knight, our water treatment plant opera-
tor, at 850 948 2251. Or, you may contact the Department of Environmental Protec-
tion, Potable Water Section at 904 807 3300.
