Purchases Monticello News

Emerald Greene Kinsley, publisher of the Madison
newspapers, bought The Monticello News from
Ron Cichon, left, last week.

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Emerald Greene Kinsley, publisher of Greene
Publishing, Inc., has announced that she recently
purchased The Monticello News.
Kinsley purchased the Monticello publication
from Ron Cichon, who has owned the newspaper
since February 1976.
"I am very excited about the future of TheMon-
ticello News," Kinsley said. "We will be instituting
a number of changes which, I'm sure, the readers
will love. The newspaper, which comes out twice
weekly, will have a color front page. We have an ex-
cellent editorial staff already at The Monticello
News, but we will be adding more stories and pho-
tos in order to captivate more readers."
Kinsley also publishes The Madison County
Carrier and The Madison Enterprise-Recorder. Her
parents, Tommy and Mary Ellen Greene, founded
The Carrier in 1964. They later purchased The
Mayo Free Press and The Branford News and
opened The Steinhatchee Edition in Taylor County
and The White Springs Leader in Hamilton County
In 1993, the Greene's purchased The Enterprise-
Recorder, a newspaper, which was founded in 1865.
Emerald took over as publisher when Tommy an-
nounced his retirement on August 5, 1995, after 35
years.
Kinsley grew up with printing ink in her blood
and a camera and a pen in her hand. During her
childhood, she worked with her parents at The Car-
rier and her two daughters, Cheltsie, 14, and
Brooke, 12, are following in her footsteps. This
summer, Cheltsie serves as the receptionist for
Greene Publishing, Inc. and Brooke serves as an ad-
vertising representative. Both girls multi-tasked
and learned many other parts of the newspaper
business. She is married to Paul Kinsley, owner of
Pioneer Excavating. Kinsley is a graduate of Au-
cilla Christian Academy and North Florida Com-
munity College.
After becoming the publisher of the two news-
papers in Madison, Emerald instituted a number of
changes including switching from doing layout by
hand to computers. Digital photography and color
pages have enhanced the look of the newspaper as

tempted to pick up a child
east of Madison.
Most recently, (June
30) a parent called 911, re-
porting that an older
black male, driving a red
Mustang with a canvass
top, attempted to pick up
her three children. When
he stopped and opened his
car door, the children ran
home, which was the right
thing to do. The parent
told police that a white
male, as described above,
has been seen driving this
same car.
Police Chief Rick
Davis said that although
we do live in a relative
safe community with a
crime rate lower than
most cities in the state,
child predators do exist
and wil commute to small
rural towns and target
children. "Historically,
more children are abduct-
ed or snatched from small


rural communities such
as ours," he said, "than
metro cities," he said.
Parents are reminded
to be more vigilant in
monitoring their chil-
dren. Do not allow small
children to wander their
neighborhoods unsuper-
vised. Stay in groups
when traveling. NEVER
allow your child to walk to
the store or walk further
than your neighbors
alone. Teach your child to
NEVER leave with a
stranger. Child predators
are very cunning and
have the ability to coax or
influence children. Par-
ents should teach their
children that if ap-
proached by a stranger,
and are asked to leave
with them, tell the chil-
dren to RUN AWAY.
YELL, and report the in-
cident immediately to a
known adult, Davis said.

The Second Continental Congress gathered in
Philadelphia shortly after New Years, 1776. They faced
a tough decision. A low grade insurgency against
British occupation had begun the previous year in
Massachusetts. In response, King George III had ap-
pealed to the Parliament in faraway London to come
down hard on the unruly Colonists and Parliament had
agreed.
A showdown with George Washington's green
troops had led to the British evacuating Boston a good
start. Now, a much stronger British invasionary force
threatened New York and the signs were ominous.
Through the spring of 1776, the fledgling Congress
debated the issue of separation from the rule of Great
Britain it was not an easy decision. The colonies of
about 2.5 million people were divided into thirds: one-
third supported independence; one third of the nation
maintained loyalty to Britain; and the final one-third
was undecided. John Adams, the crafty lawyer from
Braintree, Massachusetts, led the most effective debate
in favor of independence.
By early June, the majority of the 56 delegates
leaned toward independence from the mother country
They selected a Committee of Five to draft a resolution
declaring independence Benjamin Franklin (PA),
Roger Sherman (CN), Robert Livingston (NY), Thomas
JeffersoA (VA), and John Adams (MA). The committee
quickly settled on Jefferson to complete the first draft.
At 33, Thomas Jefferson was one of youngest dele-.
gates to the Congress, but his brilliance was obvious.
While he engaged in very little of the debate, his mind
was churning. He quickly drew up a "declaration of in-
dependence" that had no precedence. Instead, he used
the thoughts from his classical education of Greek
philosophers and great thinkers like Hume, Locke, and.
Bolingbroke. His design began with a preamble, then
enumerated offenses, and finalized with a pledge of sol-
idarity. The Committee of Five made some superficial
corrections and by July 1, submitted the declaration to
the Congress.
A full debate occurred where Adams once again led
the argument in favor of the resolution. His principle
opponent was John Dickinson of Pennsylvania who
passionately argued for resstr4it, tBytthbis: time,D icki~n,%v
sonwas- badly outnumbered anid'hetkneew itt -He would-*.--
,choose-to abstain from the, voting, iA.reliminary vote .
after a full day of debate indicated that the delegates of- -
nine of 13 states were in favor of the resolution.
They adjourned overnight during which Caesar
Romney of Rhodes Island arrived on horseback, break-
ing the states' tie vote in favor of independence. On
July 2nd, 12 of the 13 states voted in favor of indepen-
dence with New York abstaining it was as close to
unanimous as they would get.
The next day, the delegates got down to the hard
work of wordsmithing the draft resolution itself. Much
of Jefferson's text was changed, but the essential idea
and format remained intact. Finally, on July 4th, the
Continental Congress voted on the final text of the res-
olution, hereafter to be known as the Declaration of In-
dependence.
The eloquence of the second paragraph is from the
hand of Jefferson himself: "We hold these truths to be
self-evident, that all mean are created equal, that they
are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable
rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit
of happiness -- that to secure these rights, governments
are instituted among men, deriving their just powers
from the consent of the governed."
With these hallowed words, a new nation was born
along with a revolutionary idea. After more than two
centuries, we take these words and the liberty they irih-
ply for granted. We shouldn't. In most other countries
around the world in places like Africa, South America,
Asia, and the Middle East, the concept of government
"of the people, by the people, and for the people" is a
lofty and far off goal maybe too far.
We are a blessed nation. Let's not take it for grant-
ed. Happy birthday America!

LOCAL & REGIONAL CRIME



Jury Convicts Two Defendants For Trafficking Of A Minor For

The Purpose Of Engaging In Prostitution


R. Alexander Acosta,
United States Attorney for
the Southern District of
Florida, and Jonathan I.
Solomon, Special Agent in
Charge, Federal Bureau of
Investigation (FBI), an-
nounced that defendants
Darryl John Jennings, 41, of
Tulsa, Oklahoma, and
Luroy Jennings, 49, of Dal-
las, Texas, were found
guilty by a federal jury on
June 15, 2007, on two
counts of sex trafficking of
a minor, in violation of Title
18, United States Code,
Section 1591(a)(1) and
(a)(2), respectively. A third
defendant, Sammy Lee Car-
penter, 45, of Tulsa, Okla-
homa, pleaded guilty on
June 11, 2007, to four
counts of sex trafficking of
a minor and enticement of a
minor to engage in prostitu-
tion, in violation of Title 18,
United States Code, Sec-
tions 1591(a)(1),
1591(a)(2), 2422(a), and
2422(b). Sentencing before
United States District Judge
Cecilia M. Altonaga is
scheduled for September 4,

ter faces a mandatory mini-
mum sentence of 15 years'
imprisonment, while D.
Jennings and L. Jennings
each face a mandatory min-
imum sentence of 10 years'
imprisonment.
This arrest and prosecu-
tion was spearheaded by the
FBI's Minor Vice Task
Force, which is a partner-
ship between the FBI, City
of Miami Police Depart-
ment, Miami-Dade County
Police Department, and the
Miami Beach Police De-
partment, as a part of the
"Innocence Lost" initiative.
The "Innocence Lost" ini-
tiative is a joint initiative
between the FBI and the
Department of Justice, in
partnership with the Nation-
al Center for Missing & Ex-
ploited Children, which fo-
cuses on child victims of in-
terstate sex trafficking.
According to the evi-
dence presented during the
trial, in February 2007 in
Tulsa, Oklahoma, defen-
dants Carpenter and D. Jen-
nings took a Geo Prizm be-

longing to Carpenter's ex-
girlfriend. The pair trav-
eled from Oklahoma to
Florida, where they
arranged to meet with D.
Jennings' brother, L. Jen-
nings, who also used the
alias "Captain Sco." In
Florida, defendants intend-
ed to begin a prostitution
operation.
Defendants arrived in
Orlando, and each attempted
to recruit women and girls
to work as prostitutes in
their venture. Carpenter se-
cured the use of a 1999
Cadillac, which the three
defendants used to travel to
and from Orlando and Mia-
mi from late February
through early March 2007.
During their travels in
Florida, Carpenter took
photographs on his cellular
telephone and sent them to
various people, including a
17-year-old girl in Tulsa
named "J.B." Carpenter,
who knew that the girl was
a minor, had been romanti-
cally and sexually involved
with her when he lived in
Tulsa.


After Carpenter sent the
pictures to J.B., among oth-
ers, he contacted her on or
about March 10, and invited
her to Miami. Carpenter
told the girl that she could
stay with him in Florida and
finish her pending GED
classes. Carpenter also told
her that he would get her a
bus ticket to make the trip.
Subsequently, on or about
March 11, Carpenter and D.
Jennings went to the Grey-
hound bus station in Miami
and purchased her a ticket
to Miami. Carpenter told
the girl to call him often so
that he could track her trip
progress.
Along the way, Carpen-
ter changed plans and told
the girl to disembark in Or-
lando. On March 14, the
girl arrived in Orlando,
where Carpenter and D.
Jennings greeted her in the
Cadillac.
The evidence at trial
showed that once Carpenter,
D. Jennings, and the girl en-
tered the Cadillac, Carpen-
ter's demeanor changed.
He instructed the girl that

FDLE Arrests Five In

Scheme To Steal

Child Support Funds


The Florida Department
of Law Enforcement has ar-
rested five people involved in
a scheme to divert money
from a child support fund. An
employee of a company sub-
contracted by the Department
of Revenue (DOR) to manage
and disburse the funds has
been identified as the master-
mind. behind the scheme,
which used women already re-
ceiving child support as co-
conspirators.
In May, DOR's Office of
Inspector General found suspi-
cious disbursements from an
account that holds child sup-
port payments that for various
reasons have gone unclaimed.
FDLE was asked to investi-
gate what appeared to be crim-
inal diversion of funds from
the account. That investiga-
tion led to Anthony Purvis, an
employee of People Really
Working Together (PRWT), a
firm sub-contracted to manage
child support payments for the
Department of Revenue.
The investigation also
identified four women as re-
cipients of money paid out
from the account after Purvis
allegedly solicited them to
participate in the scheme. The
women were already receiving
child support payments legiti-
mately and had accounts
through which the money
could be routed.
Because of his job with
PRWT, Purvis knew how to


initiate a process to moye
money from the account to
someone who was pre-autho-
rized to receive child support
through DOR. All he heeded
was willing participants to re-
ceive the checks then split the
money with Purvis. Altogeth-
er, more than $20,000 in ille-
gal payments was made.
Charged in connection with
the scheme are:
Anthony Purvis, 29, Talla-

Arrested on 6/18/07 :and
charged with 17 counts of

Put (Financial)
Independence Day on Your Calendar
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
This week, we'll be observing the Fourth of July.
But at some pint in your life, you'll want to celebrate
another type of Independence Day Financial
Independence Day. When will it occur? It's up to you.
Here are a few suggestions for speeding it.along:
Feed those retirement plans. The most important
thing you can do to hasten, your Financial
Independence Day is to continruat y'savemndinvest for
retirement. Take full advantage of your 401(k) or other
employer-sponsored retirement plan. Your earnings
have the potential to grow on a tax-deferred basis and
you can create an investment mix that reflects your risk
tolerance, time horizon and retirement goals. Also,
even if you have a 401(k), you may be eligible to invest
in a traditional or Roth IRA. A traditional IRA has the
potential to grow tax-deferred, while a Roth IRA has
the potential to grow tax free, provided you've had your
account at least five years and you don't start taking
withdrawals until you are at least 59-1/2. And you can
fund your IRA with a wide range of investments, such
as stocks, bonds and certificates of deposit (CDs).
Don't let your debts get out of hand. You probably
can't avoid all debts, and some of them such as a
mortgage at least offer the possibility of tax write-
offs. But the larger your debt payments, the less money
you'll have to invest, so do what you can to live within
your means.
Prepare for emergencies. If you face some unexpected-
ly large medical bills, or if you need a new car or a
major appliance, will you have the money available? If
not, you may have to dip into your investments and
that can slow your progress toward your eventual
financial freedom. To avoid this problem, build an
emergency fund containing six to 12 months' worth of
living expenses. Put the money in a liquid vehicle one
with a lesser risk of loss of principal.
Be a "tax-smart" investor. Taxes can eat into your
investment returns, so you'll want to become a "tax-
smart" investor. As we've already mentioned, your
401(k) and IRA offer tax advantages, so you'll want to
contribute as much as you can afford to both these
vehicles. Beyond that, perhaps the most important step
you can take is to follow a "buy-and-hold" strategy. By
purchasing stocks, and holding them for many years,
you'll put off capital gains taxes until you sell. This
technique also can help you hold down commissions
and give your stocks a chance to appreciate. Another
tax-advantaged move that could benefit you particu-
larly if you're in one of the higher tax brackets is to
invest in municipal bonds. Your -interest payments will
be free from federal taxes; if the municipality that
issues the bond is in your state, your interest payments
also may be exempt from state and local taxes.
(However, some municipal bonds are subject to the
alternative minimum tax, so do your research before
you invest.)

By making the right moves, you can someday reach
your own personal Financial Independence Day. So put
it on your calendar of the future and then do what it
takes to reach that happy date.

Good Manners Belong


On The Road, Too!


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc,
Chewing with a closed
mouth and not picking
one's teeth in public are ex-
amples of good manners
and general etiquette. How-
ever, there is a.such thing as
.good manners,on the xoad..
Most people follow road
etiquette just because their
parents did it, or that's
what everyone else does.
Road etiquette, like resist-
ing that hankering to honk
the horn or yell dirty things
to the erratic driver in front
of you, includes pulling off


to the side for a funeral pro-
cession or an emergency ve-
hicle. The law does not
state an official position on
horn honking or berating,
but it does state that pulling
off the road for motorcades
and emergency vehicles is
required.
If a driver encounters
a funeral procession while
on the road, drivers must
yield to that motorcade.
When the first vehicle of
the motorcade lawfully en-
ters an intersection, other
vehicles in the procession
must have their headlights
on as a signal to other dri-
vers not to drive between
or interfere with the pro-
cession while it is in mo-
tion, unless otherwise di-
rected by a police officer. It
is common courtesy to pull
over to the side of the road
and let the procession
pass.
Drivers must yield the
right-of-way to law en-
forcement cars, fire en-
gines, ambulances, and
other emergency vehicles,
provided they are running
with sirens and/or flash-
ing lights. Drivers should
pull over to the closest
edge of the road and wait
until the vehicle has
passed. Do not block inter-
sections.
"When driving on inter-
state highways or other


highways with two or more
lanes traveling in the direc-
tion of an emergency vehi-
cle, and except when other-
wise directed by a law en-
forcement officer drivers ap-
proaching a law enforce-
ment or other authorized
emergency vehidleparked on
a roadway with their emer-
gency lights activated, will
be required to lea ve the lane
closest to the emergency vehi-
cle as soon as it is safe to do
so.
"When approaching a

based on the Holy
Bible. Its objectives
are charitable, and
benevolent. OES is a
social order, comprised
of persons with spiri-
tual values, but it is
not a religion. Its ap-
peal rests in the true
beauty of the refresh-
ing and character-
building lessons that
are so sincerely por-
trayed in its ritualistic
work.
A deep fraternal
bond exists between its
members. It is the


wholesome relation-
ship of sisterly and
brotherly love, brought
about through high
principles exemplified
in their daily lives that
make its members near
and dear to each other.
Members must be
eighteen years of age
or older and either a
Master Mason in good
standing, or properly
related to a Master Ma-
son in good standing.
The latter category
includes wives, wid-
ows, sisters, daughters,


mothers, granddaugh-
ters, step-mothers,
stepdaughters, step-
sisters, and half-sis-
ters. In 1994 this was
expanded to include
nieces, daughter-in-
laws, and grandmoth-
ers. Annual dues are
$20 to support the local
chapter.
If anyone, man or
woman, is interested in
joining the Order of
the Easter Star, Madi-

ald Kinsley at (850) 973-

The address of the
Associate Grand Ma-

treat, as she spoke of

this special event. She
thanked everyone for
the hospitality shown
to her during her stay,
and for the wonderful
food that had been pre-
pared, in her honor,
earlier that evening.
She related that the
picnic dinner was espe-

hotdogs were actually
her favorite food.
After the chapter
closed, in due form, a
special presentation
(courtesy) was per-
formed for the Associ-

You're getting married, right?
Congratulations! You want your wed-
I ding day to be as perfect and beautiful
as you've always dreamed However; if
you choose the wrong photographer,
your day may be a lot less than perfect,
iahd you may not be satisfied with the
images you'r photographer captures.
Bumnuner. So, how do you choose the
right photographer?
Here's how. Make sure your wed-
ding photographer offers you these
five things Then you can relax and feel
confident the love. special moments
r and important details of \our wedding
S day will be captured in beautiful im-
ages for a lifetime of memories.
e Do you like the photographer's
n work?


Look at a fairly good selection of
the photographers wedding images.
.not just a few photos on a web site. It's
best if you can see at least an album or
two and a proof book of a complete
wedding. The albums probably repre-
sent the best of the photographer's
-work, and the proof book shows all the
-typical images he or she captures dtur-
ing a wedding day How do the images
look to you? Are they pleasing to look
at? Does the lighting and the color look
good to you? Is the photographer's
style what you are looking for? Most of
our bridal couples are looking for a
mix of photojournahlstic images and
classic posed traditional ones. Make
sure your photographer is capable of.
and comfortable with, taking the style
of images you want for your wedding.
. If you don't like the photograph-
er's work, there is no nt-ed to consider
them further. Also. make sure the
work you see was done by the photog-
rapher who will photograph your wed-
ding. Some studios \\ill show you a lot
-of good work from various photogra-
.phers, but will not gu.a.ran tee you will

"Reducing The Risk Of Breast Cancer By 30% "


You have seen the stamp, you may
have participated in the march or giv-
en to a charity to sup-
port breast cancer, but
you probably have not
seen the literature de- -__'
scribing how you can re-
duce your odds of breast --
cancer by at least 300%. .
The Journal of the
National Cancer I nsti[- .,
tute in 200)5 published a
simple way to inhibit the
action of the Heor- neu
cancer gene responsible k
for almost 30%., of all
breast cancers. It stated .'v
that when the cancer I
gene is treated with GLA
or ganmia-linolA-lnic acid
(black current seed oil),
"it not only suppresses
the cancer causing gene.
but also causes up to a -/ /-/ /
-10-fold increase in response to the
drug Herc,_eptin (trastuzuimab)" which
is used in the treatment of breast can-
cerl
But that's not all. If you eat veg-


tables rich in "'2-hydroxylation with
indole-3 carbinol (13C) a decrease in
cancer risk was ob-
served, so says the
Journal of Endocrinol-
---'- / ogj; Vol. 150 and re
suited in an "'inhibi-
,' tion of tumor growth
e during the time that
patients continued to
0 / eat 13C vegetables".
e The vegetables in
question are called the
brassica's and include
S i Kale, Collars, broccoli,
\. Brussels sprouts, as-
,' paragus and others. Is
there any wonder why
breast cancer is on an
increase. what kids eat
them? They are how-
ever, available in pill
form.
e / -' '- It is amazing that


people will spend money on lottery
tickets with million to one odds, but
not decrease their chance of breast
cancer by over 30%o by taking GLA or
phytonutrients.

Tallahassee Memorial NeuroScience Center

Announces New Spine Surgery Procedure
TMH Is First Hospital In The State To Perform The Surgery


A 73-year-old Mesa man
whose heart had been func-
tioning at only 20 percent for
the past several years is the
first in Arizona to be im-
planted with a lightweight
heart pump that will keep
his heart beating at nearly
full capacity and result in
improved quality of life.
The patient was dis-
charged from Mayo Clinic
Hospital on Monday, June
11, noting that he felt "great"
and boasting about having
trained for 20 minutes on an
exercise bike while wearing
what he calls his "second
.heart." The pump, called a
left ventricular assist device
(LVAD), was implanted
(alongside his own heart) on
May 15 by surgeons at Mayo
Clinic. The device is intend-
ed to be used for "destina-
tion therapy," meaning that
the patient -- who otherwise
would risk serious health
consequences resulting
from advanced-stage heart


failure -- can go home and
resume many of his normal
activities.
Advanced-stage heart
failure occurs when the
weakened heart can no
longer pump sufficient
blood to the body's organs.
Standard treatment for
heart failure includes
lifestyle modifications and
medications to help elimi-
nate excess fluid from the
body. When symptoms be-
come life-threatening, a
heart transplant is consid-
ered. In the case of the Mesa
patient, a transplant was not
an option.
The LVAD, often used as
a "bridge-to-transplant" un-
til a heart becomes avail-
able, is now being used for
"destination therapy."
Importantly, because
the device is small, quiet
and easy to maintain, the
patient can go home and re-
sume activity Before leav-
ing the hospital, the patient

and his family members
were provided education as
to how to operate the device.
The patient must demon-
strate independence with
self-care, management of the
device and what to do in an
emergency His training exer-
cises incorporated a trip to a
local shopping mall, a night
out at a restaurant and an af-
ternoon at the movies all un-
der the watchful eye of Mayo
Clinic staff" and his family to
gauge his stamina.
The patient reported that
his pumping device was "qui-
et enough that no one was
bothered at the movie the-
ater" during a showing of

plants since the program

Nearly 5 million people
in the U.S. suffer from heart
failure.


The Tallahassee
Memorial NeuroScience
Center has announced a
new spine surgery proce-
dure designed to replace
the traditional method of
spinal fusion surgery to
treat individuals with De-
generative Disc Disease
(DDD).
The procedure, called
the ProDisc-L Total Disc
Replacement, removes an
unhealthy disc in the
spine and replaces it with
an implant made of
chrome metal and plastic.
This implant uses a ball
and socket design to pre-
serve motion in the treat-
ed disc area. TMH is the
first hospital in the state to
perform this innovative
surgery
In typical spine fusion
surgery, the pain-generat-
ing disc is removed and re-
placed with plates, rods
and screws. Bone is often
taken from the hip for
grafting onto the spine.

which can put stress and
wear on other areas of the
vertebrae. "As a neurosur-
geon, I am always interest-
ed in new technologies
that will increase the qual-
ity of life for my patients
and more effectively treat
their spinal disorders,"
said Dr. Albert Lee, a
board certified neurosur-
geon of the Tallahassee
Neurological Clinic who
currently performs the
ProDisc-L Total Disc Re-
placement procedure.
"The ProDisc-L Total


Disc Replacement is a cut-
ting edge approach to
spinal surgery It does not
require a bone graft or fu-
sion, thus preserving nor-
mal motion across the disc
joint. This absorbs pres-
sure, distributes load, and
reduces degeneration of
nearby spinal levels. Addi-
tionally, patients, experi-
ence reduced pain and
healing time."
DDD is a condition
that can occur when discs
in the vertebrae no longer
function normally be-
cause of wear or from be-
ing injured. This can
cause pain that can limit
an individual's ability to
perform daily activities.
Surgery is an option for
DDD and may provide re-
lief. Tallahassee Memorial

FOURTH OF JULY


Madison County Carrier 11A




UN ITE WE STAND


Time to Celebrate!

But Please, Drive Carefully, and Don't "Drink and Drive"


Tallahassee The
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) expects traffic vol-
ume to increase during
the 4th of July holiday pe-
riod. Motorists are en-
couraged to drive respon-
sibly and to use designat-
ed drivers as a strategy to
prevent alcohol related
crashes and fatalities.
"Holidays present a
great opportunity to enjoy
family and friends, as well
as the great State of Flori-
da's many outdoor offer-
ings. The Department of
Highway Safety and Mo-
tor Vehicle's mission is
making highways safe.
Sadly, holiday weekends
are often deadly for our
motorists. The Depart-
ment urges all motorists
to be 'careful, obey traffic
laws, drive responsibly -


and buckle up," stated
Electra Bustle, Executive
Director for the Depart-
ment of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles
(DHSMV).
"In order to ensure a
safe holiday experience
for everyone, Florida
Highway Patrol troopers
will be conducting en-
forcement patrols during
the July 4th holiday, which
begins at 12:01 AM Tues-
day, July 3, and ends at
midnight, Sunday, July 8,
2007," stated Colonel Chris
Knight, Director of the
Florida Highway Patrol.
Uniformed FHP per-
sonnel, normally assigned
to administrative duties in
the office, will be assisting
regular troopers by pa-
trolling interstates and
other major state roads


throughout the six-day
holiday period. This strat-
egy is intended to increase
the Patrol's presence on
major arteries throughout
Florida in an effort to de-
ter traffic violators, and to
provide enhanced service
to motorists who break
down while traveling or
need other types of assis-
tande.
During last year's 120-
hour 4th of July holiday,
48 persons were killed in
traffic crashes in Florida:
59% of those drivers and
passengers who were
killed in vehicles normal-
ly equipped with safety


belts were not using them;
also, 55% of the fatal traf-
fic crashes were alcohol-
related. Troopers will be
concentrating their en-
forcement efforts on im-
paired, speeding and ag-
gressive drivers, and those
who fail to buckle up or
properly restrain their
child passengers.
Florida's statistics are
clear getting people
buckled up is the single
most effective thing that
can be done to save lives.
Studies have also shown
that most adults who don't
buckle up themselves -
don't buckle up their chil-


dren. Nationally, more
than half of all adults who
die in traffic crashes are
not buckled up, and six
out of ten children who
are killed in crashes are
unrestrained.
Motorists are urged to
contact the FHP or local
law enforcement agencies
to report an impaired, ag-
gressive or dangerous dri-
ver (To reach the -Florida
Highway Patrol, simply
dial *FHP (*347) from a
cellular phone). Callers
can remain anonymous.
Motorists who experience
car trouble on the high-
way or otherwise need as-
sistance from the FHP are
also encouraged to use
*FHP. For real-time traffic
and road condition re-
ports, as well as maps and
other safety tips, the pub-
lic is urged to visit the
FHP website at


www.fhp.state.fl.us.
Florida drivers can
also call 511 on their cell
phone for up-to-the
minute updates on traffic
jams, road construction,
lane closures, severe
weather and travel times
on Interstates and major
highways.
The Department of
Highway Safety and Mo-
tor Vehicles encourages
anyone with a valid Flori-
da driver license or identi-
fication card to go online
to www.hsmvy.state.fl.us
and enter their emergency
contact information. This
vital information gives
law enforcement immedi-
ate access to this informa-
tion and makes it easier
for them to speak with
someone quicker in cases
of emergency
