SCAM ALERT
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A t-shirt company claiming
that they are representing the
Madison County High School
cheerleaders and raising funds
for the squad, recently contacted
this newspaper.
Judy Hill, the MCHS cheer-
leading sponsor, said that she had
not spoken with a t-shirt compa-
ny about raising funds for the
squad and that she did not believe
the company was legitimate.
Ben Killingsworth, MCHS
principal, said that the high
school does not outsource
fundraising activities to busi-
nesses that profit from the sale of
items or advertising on such
things as the t-shirts.
A number of scams continu-
ally float around involving high
school athletics. If you have been

Reader Labeled As A Racist


wasn t our rourtn or July rireworKs display wonuci tu:
The Husband and I left our home and went to Lake Francis
the evening of July 4th, and we were thoughly entertained as we
sat and munched on crackers and cheese as we watched with
wonder the beautiful Madison fireworks.
A big thanks goes to Johnson and Johnson, and friends, and
everyone who had anything to do with the wonderful July 4th
evening. Madison is so blessed to be able to gather as friends
and family and watch such a display of fireworks as we all re-
laxed in our cars, on blankets, or while standing in ewe.
Many chose to relax in their lawn chairs with their coolers
on the front lawns of agreeable neighbors. Car radios sounded
with Gospel, Blue Grass and patriotic songs.
As darkness closed in, groups went through the audience
selling glow sticks to children. Then, as the first burst of color
illinated the sky, the crowd could be heard bursting with ap-
plause. Each display of rockets seemed to out do the previous
one, and the audience could be heard clapping and standing to
the sound of the display.
When we look back on American history, we realize that
our founders and early leaders of our country were at heart en-
trepreneours. Those risk-takers boarded ships to make a dan-
gerous ocean crossing, looking for new opportunities in a new
land. Later, adventurers with loaded wagons and family in hand
headed west for the same reason.
America is truly a powerful force, and one that is unique
throughout the world. We must not let the gift of freedom be
taken lightly, and we must make sure it rings for years to come.
America the'Beautiful -- How great the land. Long may our flag
wave, and long may we. live in peace and love.

DAMAGE PREVENTION IS
Everyone's Responsibility

Call Sunshine at 1-800-432-4770 at
least 48 hours before you dig, but not
more than five days. Have information
ready when calling: company
name/address, contact person, phone
number, location of dig site, extent and
type of work, and date/start time of
excavation. Wait 48 hours for under-
ground facilities to be marked. Respect
and protect the facility operator's

when within two feet on either side of
any marked lines.


The Editor:
It's all over, the Jig's up. I have been profiled as a
racist for using the "B" word in my recent letter about
attitude and respect for a officer of the law, by using a
black, troubled youth as a example, when he refused to
comply, to a order, and exactly what could happen to
them in trying to "Whup up" on the Law.
As for the black nurse, it was important to point out
that she was in a position to see the entire struggle/and
without a doubt, was BIG enough to wade in and stop
any excessive action used to control the youths behav-
ior. As for the "musk," the Editor will have to answer
that. I believe I wrote must have, anyway the accusser,
OR profiler, should have been smart enough to rear be-
tween the lines, instead of seeing RED when he saw
BLACK.
In 1943,when I joined the Corps, everything was ei-
ther WHITE or COLORED, and at 17, I was racist, along
with every other American, of the JAPS for what they
did at Pearl Harbor. The Marine that signed me up June
22nd, had no white forms so rather than let me get away,
he used a form for the Colored. Big letters at top of the
form COLORED, was drawn through with two parallel


pencil lines and the word WHITE was penciled in below.
I think that Jesse Jackson liked the word colored, he
always referred to the Rainbow coalition, however Dr.
King loathed at and would always refer to his group as
"WE NEGROES". Shortly after his demise the word
Black became beautiful for over 30 years, until some one
wanted to put more color into it by branding all blacks
as African Americans. Some one should have known
that it wasn't go-to work. There are probably more
white Africans alive now in the USA, that fled for their
lives when all the rogue black Africans started killing
them off for their homes and farms. The ONLY correct
identification now will have to be either WHITE AA. OR
BLACK AA. GOOD LUCK

Not many that I know of. I can't figure how much it

our freedom.We have to pay Most of us has to pay for

I recently attended a
showing of "Superman 3"
here at LSA Anaconda. We
have a large auditorium
we use for movies as well
as memorial services and
other large gatherings. As
is the custom back in the
States, we stood and
snapped to attention when
the National Anthem be-
gan before the main fea-
ture. All was going as
planned until about three-
quarters of the way
through the National An-
them the music stopped.
Now, what would hap-
pen if this occurred with
1,000 18-22 year-olds back
in the States? I imagine
there would be hoots, cat-
calls, laughter, a few rude
comments, and everyone
would sit down and call for
a movie. Of course, that is,
if they had stood for the
National 'Anthem in the
first place.
Here, the 1,000 Soldiers
continued to stand at at-
tention, eyes fixed for-
ward. The music started
again. The Soldiers contin-
ued to quietly stand at at-
tention. And again, at the
same point, the music
stopped. What would you
expect to happen? Even
here I would imagine
laughter as everyone sat
down and expected the
movie to start.
Here, you could have
heard a pin drop. Every
Soldier stood at attention.
Suddenly there was a lone
voice, then a dozen, and
quickly the room was
filled with the voices of a
thousand Soldiers

glare, the bombs bursting

Voyage To The Moon


On May 5, 1961, Ameri-
ca took its first baby steps
into space when Alan
Shepard rode a Redstone
rocket 115 miles into space National Secul
aboard his Freedom 7 Mer-
cury capsule. The subor- Joe Boyles
bital flight which lasted Guest Columnisi
barely 15 minutes took
him 350 miles down range
from Florida's east coast.
At the 'age of 13, I was
plenty excited about spaceflight.
Just three weeks later, President John Kennedy in
an address before Congress, set a national goal: to send
a man to the moon and return him safely before the
decade was complete. Implied in Kennedy's audacious
goal was a challenge to land on the moon before the So-
viets who at that point were ahead in the "space race."
Five Mercury missions followed Shepard's inaugur-
al flight testing man's ability to survive and work in the
vacuum of space flown by astronauts Grissom, Glenn,
Carpenter, Schirra, and Cooper. The seventh of the
original astronauts, Deke Slayton was grounded for a
medical condition and instead, managed the astronaut
office from that point onward.
The Gemini program followed Mercury and ush-
ered in a new team of astronauts. Instead of flying solo
like Mercury, each crew consisted of tw'o astronauts,
hence the name Gemini for the twins. Ten Gemini
flights occurred in 1965-66 and proved important skills
that would permit man to fly to the moon, including
space walk, rendezvous, docking, and long duration
spaceflight. Meanwhile, the rocket boosters were be-
cofning steadily more powerful to launch the larger pay-
loads necessary for a voyage to the moon.
Apollo was the third program of our mission to the
moon and involved building and testing three compo-
nents. First, North American Aviation built the com-
mand module which would house three astronauts and
protect them from fiery reentry Second, Grumman Avi-
ation built the lunar module, a strange looking machine
that would permit a crew of two to gently land on the
moon and then rocket back into orbit to rendezvous and
dock with the circling command module. And finally,
the Marshall Space Flight Center would construct the
mighty Saturn V rocket which would put these two
spacecraft into earth orbit and then propel them toward
the moon by way of translunar injection or TLI.
Apollo got off to a tragic start when a "plugs out"
test of the first command module on January 27, 1967,
resulted in a fire which claimed the lives of Gus Gris-
som, Ed White and Roger Chaffee. For more than 18
months, NASA grounded manned spaceflight as the in-
vestigation identified faults and North American re-
designed the command module.

As NASA prepared to
." launch the first manned
Apollo mission in 1968, a
problem arose with the
rlty second mission the LM
was not ready to fly. In-
stead they boldly decided
to send the second mission
to the moon. Apollo 7 flew
in October and just before
'. Christmas, Apollo 8 de-
parted the Kennedy Space
Center (KSC) and after a few orbits, initiated TLI to de-
part earth orbit and head to the moon. Three days later,
Borman, Lovell and Anders were circling the moon and
witnessing the first "earth rise" in humankind. After
ten circuits and a memorable Christmas Eve broadcast
from lunar orbit when the read from Genesis, they fired
their SPS engine on the far side of the moon to break
from orbit and begin the quarter million mile journey
back to the friendly confines of earth. The fiery 25 thou-
sand mph reentry into the earth's atmosphere safely
dropped the capsule and its human cargo into the warm
waters of the South Pacific.
Apollo 9 tested the LM in earth orbit before Apollo
10 went back to the moon. Tom Stafford and Gene Cer-
nan descended their LM "Snoopy" to within 50 thou-
sand feet of the moon's surface testing various systems
and mapping the first landing spot on the Sea of Tran-
quility Now all was set for man's first landing and steps
upon the moon.
That mission began when Apollo 11 blasted off from
KSC on July 16, 1969. Four days later, Astronauts Neil
Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed their lunar module
on the surface of the moon while Mike Collins circled
overhead in command module Columbia. With only 20
seconds of fuel remaining, Armstrong shut down the
descent engine and radioed Mission Control, "Houston,
Tranquility Base. The Eagle has landed."
NASA landed five more crews on the moon over the
next three years. There would have been a sixth but an
explosion in space 200 thousand miles from earth crip-
pled Apollo 13 and we were indeed fortunate to recover
the crew safely. Each mission visited a different loca-
tion on the near side of the moon and became increas-
ingly more demanding in scientific exploration.
And then, Apollo was over. The most ambitious pro-
gram since 1972 has been the international space sta-
tion in near-earth orbit. It pales in comparison to the
bold goal set by Kennedy in 1961 and achieved by more
than 400 thousand scientists and engineers in govern-
ment, industry and academia in just eight years time.
When will we dare agair to export th heavens?'

Should You Speed up Mortgage Payments
or Increase Investments?
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Most people who have mortgages dream of a day
when they won't. In fact, many mortgage-holders speed up
their payments to make that day arrive sooner. Is that
smart, from a financial standpoint? Not necessarily.
This point is highlighted by a 2006 study prepared by
economists for the National Bureau of Economic
Research. About 38 percent of U.S. households are mak-
ing the wrong choice when they speed up their mortgage
payments rather than use the extra money to save in tax-
deferred accounts such as 401(k) plans or IRAs, according
to the study. These households are giving up a yield of 11
to 17 cents for every dollar they spend on extra mortgage
payments, depending on their choice of investments in a
tax-deferred account.
While these survey results are certainly interesting,
they don't tell the whole story on the issue of making extra
mortgage payments versus investing. If you have a quan-
titative nature, however, you can do a little analysis on
your own. For example, if you were to pay down a mort-
gage with a 5.5 percent rate, it would be essentially the
same thing as earning 5.5 percent on some type of invest-
ment. But if you are in the 25 percent tax bracket, and you
deducted your mortgage interest payments from your
taxes, your 5.5 percent mortgage would really "cost" you
just 4.125 percent. So, if you could find an investment'that
paid more than 4.125 percent, you'd come out ahead by
investing, rather than paying down your mortgage. (Keep
in mind, though, that you may have to pay taxes on your
investment.)
It might not be that hard to find an investment that
pays more than your after-tax mortgage rate. But that's not
the only reason why it may make sense to choose invest-
ing over mortgage reduction. Here are. two other factors to
consider:
Paying off your mortgage early won't boost your ulti-
mate return. Obviously, you want your house to appreciate
in value. But paying off your mortgage early won't make
your home worth more, though it will enable you to pock-
et more of the proceeds when you sell. On the other hand,
the more shares you purchase of an investment, such as
stock, the greater your potential for boosting your net
worth. Of course, investing also has its risks; when you
sell your stocks, you could receive more or less than the
original investment amount.
Investing provides you with greater liquidity than
paying down a mortgage. Once you make extra payments
to your mortgage, you can't get at that money, except indi-
rectly, through a second mortgage or home equity loan.
But if you were to invest the money instead, you'd have
access to it (though, again, you might have tax implica-
tions). This liquidity could be important if you lose your
job or if you face an unexpected financial need, such as a
major medical bill.
Still, there's another side to the mortgage/investment
issue. If it just makes you feel better to whittle away your
mortgage or possibly pay it off altogether that's some-
thing tO consider. And if you're close to retirement, it may
make particularly good sense, from both the psychological
and cash flow perspectives, to get rid of that mortgage.
So, weigh all the factors carefully when deciding
whether to pay down the mortgage or invest. Your choice
can have big consequences for your future.

played at the Madison County Correctional Institution
and her mother, Melody, is a local karaoke/DJ with
Melody's "Good Time" Karaoke.
McLaughlin is a resident of Bradenton, Florida, and
was cooking with grease when the pan caught fire. She
attempted to put out the fire with water when it explod-
ed and grease scorched her body
McLaughlin is 25 years of age and a single mother of
two children. Currently, she is listed in critical condi-
tion in the Intensive Care Unit at the Burn Center in
Tampa, Florida. Doctors say she will be spending at
least three to five months in the hospital recovering.
On July 4, Beverly and Allen's 53 Bar, one of the
places Melody does karaoke for, held a fundraiser to aid
McLaughlin with medical expenses and other bills.
Mike Jones "Music Maker," did karaoke for free and do-
nated the money he would have made to the fund. Two
large leis were auctioned off, with one selling for $45 and
the other for $40. Also, a metal racecar wall art sold for
$40. A total of $350 was raised for Amanda and her fam-
ily
Another fundraiser will be held Friday, July 6, at
Beverly and Allen's 53 Bar. All money raised that night
will go directly to McLaughlin and her children.
Any donations towards medical expenses and her
children are greatly appreciated. To make a donation,
call Melody McLaughlin at 850-673-9437. Additionally, do-
nations can be dropped off to Beverly Flynn, 971-5291, at
The 53 Bar on Hwy 53 South, about a mile south of 1-10,
Tues. Sat. 3pm-llpm, or to Carla Barrett at Greene Pub-
lishing, Inc, 973-4141, located at 1695 SR 53 South.
If you experience a grease fire, never use water to
put it out. The safest way to control the fire is to cover
the pan with a tight lid, which will cut off the source of
oxygen and suffocate the fire. While cooking grease, al-
ways keep a lid that fits the pan nearby 0

Two Men Charged: One For Assault,

Both For Disorderly Conduct
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Two Madison men were charged for disorderly con-
duct and one of them was charged with assault early
Monday morning, July 9.
According to a Madison Police Department report,
Sgt. Chris Cooks was on foot patrol when he walked up
to the Jiffy Food Store at approximately 3:30 a.m. Cooks
noticed two black males, later identified as Brian
Aikens, 18, and Marquis Baynard, 19. Aikens was stand-
ing behind the counter in the store and Baynard was
standing outside, apparently keeping watch for Aikens.
The clerk in the store said that Aikens had made a
sexual remark to her and jumped behind the counter.
Cooks arrested Aikens for assault and disorderly
conduct.
The clerk also said that Baynard had come into the
store several times and made sexual remarks to her. He
left and came back and used profanity in her presence.
Cooks advised Baynard to leave the store and not
come back. He advised Baynard to sign a trespass form
but Baynard refused and began making a scene and
cursing.
Cooks charged Baynard with disorderly conduct.
Both men were transported to the Madison County
Jail.

preaching the vehicle, it passed two other southbound
vehicles in a no-passing zone.
As Maurice activated his emergency blue lights to
signal the driver to stop, the vehicle continued traveling
south. When the vehicle reached the entrance of the Big
Oak Trailer Park, it slammed on its brakes, temporarily
traveling into the northbound lane then slid into the
trailer park. The vehicle continued through the park un-
til it reached a dead end.
At the dead end, the Chrysler slid in between two
trailers while the driver threw a package out of the dri-
ver's side window. The vehicle then turned around and
headed back in the direction of Cpl. Maurice. ,
Maurice blocked the exit with his patrol and exited.
The vehicle continued directly towards Maurice, who
drew his weapon and ordered the driver to stop.
The vehicle came to a stop inches from Cpl. Maurice
and the driver, Byron Keith Irvine, 31, of Madison.
Irvine was ordered out and placed under arrest. Dur-
ing a search of the subject, marijuana was located on his
person and the recovered package, which contained
crack cocaine, was also located.
Irvine was charged with fleeing and attempting to
elude, possession of crack cocaine, and possession of
marijuana, along with several traffic violations.
Sgt. David Harper and Deputy Tim Nagy assisted
Maurice at the scene.

BRIDAL



Finding A Wedding Planner


Are you in love with the dream of the
perfect wedding yet overwhelmed with
all the details and responsibility put
upon you to plan your dream day your-
self? A reliable wedding planner can help
make the day you'll always remember a
wonderful experience instead of a memo-
ry worthy of a nervous breakdown.
Also called wedding consultants or
coordinators, wedding planners are the
bride's right hand down to every detail in
the ceremony and reception. She can be
there the moment after the ring is on the
finger to the last guest at the reception.
The bride has the choice to give as much
or as little responsibility to the planner
as she desires.
But how do you know if you should
hire a wedding planner? Here are a few
examples where a wedding planner can
help:
The first and probably most impor-
tant aim of a wedding planner is to re-
lieve as much stress for the bride as pos-
sible while still making her feel in con-
trol of the event.
If you are planning on a budget, your
wedding planner will be sensitive and
also be capable to balance the expenses. A
good planner will prioritize what needs
more or less monetary attention. Also,
you will more likely go over your budget
if you plan alone. Your wedding planner
will not only make you stick to your pre-
arranged budget, but also knows many
vendors and can find special deals you
would otherwise not be able to attain.
A wedding planner will be flexible
enough to accommodate your dreams for
your perfect wedding, they should have


the creativity to both encourage and exe-
cute your unique ideas. This is your wed-
ding. You know what will make it memo-
rable, and your planner should help make
this dream come true. However, these
professionals know what is and is not ac-
ceptable for a wedding ceremony. A good
wedding planner will be honest about
your not so great ideas such as the best
man's beer funneling contest.
If the ceremony is planned out of
state, a planner in that area will be fa-
miliar with geography and will know
the best vendors for that area.
One of the most important qualities
of your perfect wedding planner is a
shared sense of taste. Ask her what type
of weddings she likes and ask to see
samples of her past events. The right
planner can narrow down choices in a
certain category depending on your
taste. Instead of thousands of invita-
tions, a wedding planner will weed out
the obviously unsatisfactory ones and
let you choose from the top three.
Finally, wedding planners know all
the questions everyone else forgets to
ask. If the ceremony is outside, she will
remember where the bathrooms are or if
portable ones need to be rented. It is the
wedding planner's job to leave no corner
untouched.
There are many online resources
you can use to search for the closest
planners in your area. Remember to in-
terview each applicant to see if they are
qualified and if you both see eye to eye.
Once your perfect wedding planner is
hired, relax and know your big day is in
good hands.

Choosing Wedding Invitations


One of the first things
you will do when planning
a wedding is to choose your
wedding invitations. There
are so many wedding invi-
tations to choose from and
lots of places to look.
You may want to look
online for wedding invita-
tions. There are sites that
have all kinds of wedding
invitations in many styles
and colors.
You can even order
beautiful wedding invita-
tions online. This makes
the task quick and easy
Wedding sites that offer
this type of service have
made the process a breeze.
You can look for wed-
ding invitations in wed-,
ding magazines. Spend an
afternoon at a bookstore or
library browsing through
wedding magazines and

you will get a good idea of
what is available.
There are many bridal
stores or stationery shops
that have wedding invita-
tions. These bridal invita-
tions are available in a
stunning array of styles
and colors. Allow yourself
enough time to look
through all the books of
wedding invitations. This
can be a time-consuming
project but it will allow
you to choose the perfect
invitation.
If you have a bridal
notebook or folder you
may want to keep track of
your favorite wedding invi-
tations. Start looking for
wedding invitations sever-
al months before the wed-
ding. If you order wedding
invitations it can take
quite awhile to get them.
Also, allow yourself
enough time to have the in-
vitations reprinted if
there happens to be any
mistakes. You do not want
to have to send out wed-


ding invitations that do
not have the correct infor-
mation or misspellings.
When you order wed-
ding invitations from a
specialty store you cah
usually expect to pay quite
a bit.
If you need to save a
little money you can either
make or print your own
wedding invitations.
There are many kinds
of card stock, envelopes,
rubber stamps, inks and
embellishments available
if you want to design your
wedding invitations.
For those who are cre-
ative, artistic or want a
unique, one-of-a-kind wed-
ding invitation, this is a
wonderful idea. There are
wedding invitations at
craft and printing stores
that can be printed using
your own computer.
Wedding invitations
set the tone for the wed-
ding. Choose or make just
the right wedding invita-
tions for your special day

Florida Earns A "B" On Annual Prostate Cancer Report Card


Florida's federal elected officials are the
only barrier to the Sunshine State getting an
"A" in the fight against prostate cancer, ac-
cording to the annual Prostate Cancer Report
Card, issued this week by the National
Prostate Cancer Coalition. The report as-
sessed the state of the disease in each of the
50 states and the District of Columbia, and as-
signed a grade based on critical areas like
mortality and screening rates, support for
prostate cancer-related legislation, and acces-
sibility to urologists and clinical trial sites.
"The state gets A's' in mortality rates,
screening rates and number of clinical trial
sites, if only federal elected officials would
start supporting simple issues like designat-
ing September as Prostate Cancer Awareness
Month," said NPCC CEO Richard N. Atkins,
MD. "There is other important legislation
the delegation could focus on which would
help lead to a cure for the second deadliest
cancer of American men."
In prder to determine each state's com-
mitment to the fight against prostate cancer,
NPCC added several pieces of criteria for the
2007 assessment, including current mortality
and screening statistics from the American
Cancer Society's Cancer Prevention and Ear-
ly Detection: Cancer Facts and Figures 2007.
The percentage of men screened for prostate
cancer and the mortality rates (per 100,000
men) from prostate cancer were determined
in a given state. Each state was then ranked
according to its percentage and received a
grade according to its rank. The top ten
states received an "A' and the bottom ten

states received an "E" Each state was as-
sessed based on their federal representatives'
support of the following prostate cancer-re-
lated legislation:
Thomas J. Manton Prostate Cancer Early
Detection and Treatment Act of 2007, which
provides federal funding for prostate cancer
screening and treatment for low to moderate
income men; -Department of Defense Cancer
Research Program "Dear Colleague" letter
from Members of Congress to appropriators
asking for additional funding for prostate
cancer research in the Defense Appropria-
tions bill; Senate resolution designating Sep-
tember as Prostate Cancer Awareness
Month.
Grades were determined by the per-
centage of co-signers per Congressional
delegation by state, for each piece of legis-
lation, as well as if the state supported a
mandate requiring coverage of prostate
cancer screening. If the state has a law
guaranteeing insurance coverage for
prostate screening, it received an "A."
States that introduced screening bills at the
state level in the past year received a "C."
States without an insurance coverage man-
date for prostate cancer screening received
an "E" Lastly, NPCC researched the num-
ber of American Urological Association-af-
filiated urologists per capital, by state popu-
lation, as well as the number of clinical tri-
al sites state-wide.

If surgery is required to treat your prostate cancer, you may be a candidate
for a new, less invasive approach to radical prostatectomy that utilizes
robotic surgery. It's called the da Vinci Surgical System, and Tallahassee
Memorial is the first and only facility in the Big Bend region to offer this

The da Vinci Surgical System offers the benefits of a more precise surgery
with the goals of reduced pain and a faster recovery for the patient. Recent
studies also suggest that robotic prostate surgery may improve cancer
control and reduce the risk of urinary incontinence and impotence.'
Are you a candidate for the latest surgical option for prostate cancer?

Older People With Diabetes More Apt To

Suffer Depression, UF Study Shows


Growing old can be disheartening.
But for people with diabetes, the aging
process can be downright depressing. A
University of Florida study published
this week in the Archives of Internal
Medicine reveals that older adults diag-
nosed with the type 2 form of the disease
are twice as likely as their peers to suffer
from depression.
An estimated 21 percent of seniors
have the disease, according to the Amer-
ican Diabetes Association, and 1.5 mil-
lion new cases are diagnosed each year.
People with diabetes are at increased
risk for developing heart disease and
stroke, as well as kidney disease, blind-
ness, dental disease and a host of other
conditions.
UF researchers say depression may
be next on the list. Doctors have noticed
for some time that it is more common
among patients with the disease, but re-
searchers have debated the cause-and-ef-
fect relationship for years. People with
diabetes may suffer hormonal imbal-
ances that predispose them to depres-
sion. On the other hand, depression is as-
sociated with physical and behavioral
factors such as obesity and poor diet that
some say could be enough to trigger dia-
betes in the elderly
The question of which ailment came
first diabetes or depression has re-
mained a mystery until now.
"This is the first study to evaluate di-


abetes as a risk factor for the onset of de-
pression in older persons," said study
author Matteo Cesari, M.D., Ph.D., a geri-
atrician in UF's Institute on Aging. "It's
likely we are looking at a vicious, self-
feeding cycle: Diabetes causes depres-
sion, which may reduce adherence to di-
abetic treatment, therefore worsening
the diabetic condition, and so on."
The researchers evaluated 2,500
healthy patients aged 70 to 79 over a six-
year period to determine if adult-onset
diabetes is a risk factor for depression.
The participants were enrolled in the
Health, Aging and Body Composition
study, an ongoing program sponsored by
the National Institute on Aging that is
based in Memphis, Tenn., and Pitts-
burgh.
UF researchers, who collaborated
with Health ABC investigators at six oth-
er universities in the U.S. and Europe,
discovered that people with diabetes are
indeed twice as likely to suffer from re-
current depression later in life. The risk
is slightly higher for those who don't
stick to recommended diet and treat-
ment regimens.
About 23 percent of the study partic-
ipants had diabetes, and nearly two-
thirds of those patients had unhealthy
blood sugar levels. The study also re-
vealed that diabetics with high blood
sugar also had elevated levels of an in-
flammatory marker called interleukin-6


that has been associated with depres-
sion.
"There may be a direct biological
link between diabetes and depression,"
said Marco Pahor, M.D., director of the
UF Institute on Aging and chairman of
the College of Medicine's department of
aging and geriatrics. "We know that de-
pression is linked to proinflammatory
cytokines, for one. Diabetes may be one
of the triggers that causes depression."
Lack of exercise and an unhealthy
diet appeared to be key factors that con-
tribute to depression in people with dia-
betes, researchers found.
"Obesity and physical performance
are the most important mediators in the
relationship between diabetes and de-
pression reported in the study," Cesari
said. "It is noteworthy that both are re-
lated to poor health status and poor qual-
ity of life."
To avoid feeling melancholy later in
life, the UF researchers said people with
diabetes should take extra care to con-
trol their blood sugar levels by maintain-
ing a healthy diet, exercising regularly
and remembering to take prescribed
medications.
"Diabetes is a preventable condition.
Right now, we are facing a national epi-
demic because of obesity and a seden-
tary lifestyle," Pahor said. "Inspiring a
change in lifestyle is an important way
that physicians can help patients avert


depression and other complications of
diabetes."
Depression can be a slippery slope.
Patients overwhelmed by sadness are-
more likely to abandon healthy eating
habits .and become less active, the re-
searchers Said. The study highlights the
need for doctors to prevent the onset of
diabetes by encouraging healthy deci-
sions regarding diet, exercise and med-
ication.
"If diabetes is already present, the
careful monitoring of this condition and
the control of (blood sugar) levels are
particularly important to avoid future
negative health-related events, including
the potential onset of 'depression," Ce-
sari said.
Although physicians sometimes
overlook depression in the elderly, the '
National Institute of Mental Health re-
ports that the rate of suicide deaths in
the older population exceeds that of the.
general population.
"The research showing that diabetes
has an independent effect on the onset of
new depression is an important find-
ing," said Jack, Guralnik, M.D., Ph.D.,
chief of the laboratory of epidemiology,
demography and biometry at the Nation-
al Institute on Aging. "Physicians caring
for older diabetic patients need to be par- -
ticularly observant to identify the onset
of depression so that they can initiate'
early treatment."

SCHOOL & EDUCATION



The Ripple Effect Of Giving Back To The Community


I


Rose Marie McHugh, Madison County High
School science teacher, was selected by her dis-
trict Superintendent of Schools to attend a
unique training opportunity made possible by a
$25,000 grant from the Progress Energy Founda-
tion. The timing of the training was critically
important because, in 2006/2007, student FCAT
science scores became tied to school grades for
the first time.
The Progress Energy Foundation grant made
it possible for McHugh and eight other science
teachers from Progress Energy served small and
rural north Florida school districts to attend the
55th Annual National Science Teachers Associa-
tion Conference held March 29-April 1, 2007, in St.
Louis, Missouri. The event offered eight day-long
pre-conference institutes and more than 1,200
concurrent sessions from which to choose.
Post conference and back in the classroom,
McHugh said, "What an incredible adventure!
From building Vex robots to simulating the plan-
etary line-up and using physics to calculate speed
with an energy car to making field guides at the
Missouri Botanical Gardens, was nothing less
than a fantastic journey. I want to personally
thank Progress Energy and my superintendent,
Mrs. Lou Miller for this fabulous opportunity."
Paula Lovett Waller, PAEC executive director,
and Brenda Crouch, a consultant in PAEC's Flori-
daLearns Academy received the check from the
Progress Energy Foundation on behalf of Gulf,
Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson, Madison, Taylor,
Liberty, Gadsden and Hamilton school districts.
"Giving back to the communities we serve is
one of Progress Energy's core beliefs," said Larry

Rose Marie McHugh represented Madison County
at a unique training session
Watson, community relations manager for
Progress Energy. "We understand the importance
of our educational systems to the local communi-
ties throughout our service territory. We are
pleased to provide this opportunity to enhance
science education."
Crouch, who wrote the grant to obtain fund-
ing, said, "The timing of this unique professional
development opportunity was critically impor-
tant as FCAT Science scores became tied to school
grades. Professional development of the caliber
experienced by grant participants at this national
conference is costly and our districts simply can-
not afford to send teachers."

The grant's objectives were:
Expose teachers from low socio-economic
status and rural areas to current, research- evi-
denced content, pedagogy and embedded technol-
ogy to enhance teachers' ability to meet Florida's
educational goal of increasing rigor and rele-
vance in middle and high school science class-
rooms.
Develop a capacity for transferal, sharing
and dissemination of science information to oth-
er students and teachers via online and broad-
cast.
Raise academic achievement of students in
areas served by Progress Energy, statewide, and
possibly nationally, as teachers infuse the ac-
quired skills and updated science content knowl-
edge into their daily practice and share those
skills via broadcast.
Waller said to Watson as she accepted the
check, "I want you to understand that you are giv-
ing $1, and our districts and PAEC will be match-
ing this with almost $3." Participating districts
paid for the cost of travel associated with confer-
ence planning and post-conference activities, as
well as for substitute teachers during,the confer-
ence and post-conference activities.
"The teachers were expected to develop lesson
plans based on what they learned at the confer-
ence and provide leadership at the district level,
thus ensuring their new knowledge was shared
with other science teachers and transferred into
the classroom," Waller added.
The project called for the Florida Education
Channel (FEC) to tape teachers presenting lessons
for broadcast and the FloridaLearns Academy to
develop a Website where the lesson plans and
video segments are available nationally. FEC is
broadcast nationwide by DISH Network on chan-
nel 9418.
PAEC is a regional educational service agency
owned and governed by its member school dis-
tricts: Calhoun, FSU Schools, Inc., Franklin, Gads-
den, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Liberty,
Madison, Taylor, Wakulla, Walton and Washing-
ton.

The seventh annual County Al-
liance for Responsible Environmen-
tal Stewardship (CARES) recogni-
tion dinner was held June 28 at
Dwight Stansel's farm in Wellborn.
Attending the 'event were 750
people from the surrounding coun-
ties.
Immediately upon entering the
building, there were booths of re-
freshments. Each booth had a differ-
ent tasty treat, ranging from water-
melon, boiled peanuts, sausage,
corn on the cob, mixed fruit, water,
soft drinks, and tea.
Dinner was compliments of Dan
Buchanan from the Farm Bureau of
Madison.
The event included a band from
Live Oak, as well as comments from
Commissioner Charles Bronson,
Florida Department of Agriculture;
John Hoblick, President, Florida
Farm Bureau; Mike Sole, Secretary,

The CARES program was first
implemented in 2001 in union with
the Suwannee River Partnership.
Later, the CARES program was ex-
tended into the Santa Fe River
Basin.
The program brings together
public agencies, farmers, agricul-
tural associations, and institutions
to increase environmental aware-
ness. It also focuses on recognizing
producers who have voluntarily im-
plemented BMPs on their opera-
tions. The program is a solely volun-
tary and a county-based program
available to all farmers.
The Florida Farm Bureau is be-
ginning to develop similar CARES
programs to other areas of the state,
where it is important that agricul-


tural producers are recognized for
their environmental stewardship.
Many farmers were recognized
for their participation in the pro-
gram.
Madison farmers who were hon-
ored at the event were: Neal Baer,
Lee; Paul Baggett, Madison; Lenord
Bembry, Greenville; Paul Braun,
Greenville; James W Brown; Allen

Florida Farm Bureau President
John Hoblick presented the awards.
