Corey Tyrell Johnson Found Guilty


12 Men and Women decided that Corey Johnson of
Madison County was guilty of having possession of two
firearms stolen from B&GP Enterprises, July 4th 2006.
The trial lasted but one day and the Jury took two hours
to decide unanimously that Cory Johnson's story was not
believable.
Lt. Mark Joost, Lt. Tina DeMotsis, two ATF Agents and
I were witnesses for the US Government. Lt. Joost re-
ceived some buttress from the Defense Attorney; the rest
of us had it quite easy Several in the MPD worked tire-
lessly to apprehend Johnson, however the ATF would be
giving the same information as the MPD, therefore, the
US Attorney decided she didn't need the duplicity
The plaintiff argued that "some dude I-don't know, put
a gun to my head and made me buy those guns for the
$60.00 I had in my pocket" That is quite a sum of money
for someone that has never worked in his thus far short
life. The firearms in Johnson's possession were, a Sup-
pressed .22 caliber Ruger Mark III and a Ruger P-89 9MM
with a value of over $1300.00 quite a savings for Corey


jonnson.
Corey Tyrell Johnson has not reached the age of 21
years yet. On August 20th Corey Johnson will have his
21st. birthday in a Federal Prison, and many more to fol-
SSt low. The defense argued, that Corey Johnson was hot the

Florida No-Fault Cont from Page 1A


sharpest tool in the shed. The defense argued that John-
son was drunk, at the time of his interrogation. Lt. Joost
and Lt. DeMotsis thought otherwise.
My thoughts are, Mr. Corey Tyrell Johnson is getting
more aggressive and violent as he gets older; it's just a
matter of time, before he hurts someone very bad. In 1999,
Johnson was charged with aggravated battery at age 13.
2001, Johnson was again charged with aggravated battery
2001 Johnson was charged with a traffic violation and ag-
gravated battery 2006, Johnson was charged with posses-
sion of a controlled substance and a chrome platted re-
volver. The MPD actually saw him selling the pot, but that
fell through the cracks. 2006, Johnson was charged with
petit theft, seems he purchased a $365.00 money order
with $200 some odd dollars in cash. 2006, Johnson was
charged with dealing in stolen property 2006 Johnson was
again charged with aggravated battery
Cory Tyrell Johnson will be sentenced October 22nd.
2007. I'm asking for 20-years, however I'll accept 10 to 12
years in a Federal Prison. One cannot deal with stolen
firearms, or use a firearm in a crime, and expect leniency
from me. I've championed a mandatory 20 years for using
a firearm in any crime for over 25 years, and still do.

at fault in an accident could make all the difference as to
which driver will be liable to pay for damages.
"The best advice we can give to consumers is to pur-
chase enough auto insurance coverage to provide proper
medical treatment for themselves and their families," said
CFO Sink, who oversees the Department of Financial Ser-
vices.
"In the event someone is at fault in an accident after
the expiration of No-Fault, sufficient auto insurance cov-
erage can help protect that family's financial assets."
"Life without No-Fault" contains useful information
for Florida consumers, such as answers to frequently
asked questions and the definitions of popular insurance
terms. Floridians can review a chart, courtesy of the Ft.
Myers News-Press, detailing which driver in an accident
is liable for payment of injuries or damages. Additionally,
consumers will find CFO Sink's previous outline of poli-
cy considerations in a post-No-Fault world.
One of the largest changes for consumers will be that
payment for injuries sustained during an accident will
now be the financial responsibility of the at-fault driver.
Under the current No-Fault Law, Florida drivers and mo-
tor vehicle operators are required to carry PIP coverage,
which would pay the first $10,000 of the drivers' (and
their passengers') medical costs, regardless of fault.
CFO Sink also operates a consumer helpline that re-
ceives more than 450,000 calls
annually from Florida's in-
surance and financial con-
sumers, many of whom have
begun to ask about the up- I
coming changes in Florida's sP
auto insurance laws. B E E

Franklin was the first offi-
cer on the scene, and Flori-

the crash investigator.
The damage to the semi

Chris Cooks and Ptl. Joseph Agner was invaluable in apprehend-
ing Smith. Later, Harper overtook and arrested Smith.
Smith was charged with violating probation by Probation and
Parole, and with resisting arrest by the Madison County Sheriff's
Department. Sgt. Harper was transported to Madison County
Memorial Hospital and treated for heat exhaustion following the
chase.
The teamwork displayed by Probation and Parole, Madison
County Sheriff's Office, and Madison Police Department, during
the chase, is what helped to apprehend yet another criminal.
Smith is a registered sex offender.

* Why get just a part


when you can get it all?

You wouldn't want half a chocolate chip
. cookie, would you? It just wouldn't be right.


-- Ernie


Following my
Father's death in
1991, I inherited
several of his
books. Recently, I
noticed one of
them on my book-
shelf and began
to read World
War II correspon-
dent Ernie Pyle's
1943 "Here is Your


National

Security


War" (Henry Holt & Co, Chicago). "Here
is Your War" is a collection of Pyle's dis-
patches from North Africa during the pe-
riod of November 1942 to May 1943. Every
morning, millions of readers in more
than 200 cities opened their newspapers to
see what their beloved and trusted Ernie
had to say.
In the first week of November 1942, the
United States Army made its first signifi-
cant contribution to World War II by
launching Operation Torch. We put six
divisions ashore in French North Africa
at Casablanca, Oran, and Algiers. The
campaign was to push east' into Tunisia
and link up with the British Eighth Army
coming from the west to trap the German
and Italian Afrika Corps.
There were plenty of mistakes initially
as the green American Army was blood-
ied for the first time. After the disaster at
Kaserine Pass, Eisenhower felt compelled
to replace the ground forces commander
Lloyd Fredendall with George Patton be-
fore we enjoyed initial success. As Pyle
points ouit, this was really a British show
for there much more experienced army
but our boys gained valuable experience
that would translate into victories later in
the war.
Ernie Pyle's book describes the war at
ground level. There is very little strategic
understanding as Pyle spent most of his
time with soldiers and airmen, reporting
back to his avid readers in U.S. newspa-
pers what the war was like for the average
soldier. "Here is Your War" takes you into
the foxhole, sleeping on the cold ground,
eating rations and hot chow, and into the
field hospitals. You begin to understand
the winter chill of North African nights,
field sanitation, and the rugged terrain of
Western Tunisia.
We're not getting this type of reporting
from Iraq and Afghanistan today. For one

thing, most of
our soldiers to-
day don't experi-
ence rough field
conditions for
long duration.
When they are
out in the field
or on convoy, ei-
ther the re-
porters do not
accompany
them, or their stories are not picked up by
the major media markets. Also, today
most of the reporting is in video form as
opposed to the written word so popular
sixty-five years ago.
Pyle was a wonderful, vivid reporter.
Just like radio, his descriptions conjured
mental images for his readers. They still
do. Today, that art is frequently lost be-
cause of the advent of television and in-
stant reporting. Consider this insight:
"In that one respect the front-line sol-
dier differed from all the rest of us. All
the rest of us you and me and even the
thousands of soldiers behind the lines in
Africa we wanted terribly yet only acad-
emically for the war to be over. The front-
line soldier wanted it to be terminated by
the physical process of his destroying
enough Germans to end it. He was truly
at war. The rest of us, no matter how
hard we worked, were not. Say what you
will, nothing can make a complete soldier
except battlefield experience."
Today it is easy to become depressed
about the war in Iraq with the Democrats
in opposition and their points trumpeted
by a compliant press. And yet when we
hear from the vast majority of returning
veterans, they tell us "let us finish what
we started." Why? Ernie Pyle told us
why 64 years ago these soldiers and
marines are at war ... the rest of us are
not.
Ernie Pyle did not survive the war. He
went on to Sicily, Italy and France before
returning for a brief rest in the United
States and then headed out to the Pacific
and Okinawa. There on April 18, 1945 a
Japanese sniper cut down the 45 year old
Pyle and stilled his battered typewriter
forever. The soldiers he loved so much
scrawled a simple but elegant plaque, "At
this spot, the 77th Infantry Division lost a
buddy"

Madison County Crime Report


I


Donald Ervin Bowen, Jr. Randell Dale Scott, Jr.
Clerk One told deputies that Randall Scott and Donald
Bowen came into the store and went back to the cooler
area. Clerk One walked back to the cooler to see what the
duo was up to, and found the men sharing a cold brew.
Both men were consuming an Icehouse 12 oz. bottle each.
When Clerk One told Scott and Bowen that they needed
to pay for the beverages, Scott presented his credit card.
The transaction failed, Clerk One told deputies, Scott and
Bowen both left the store and proceeded on their way.
Clerk One then called the Sheriff's Department to re-
port the incident, and Deputy Fletcher and Corporal Odom
arrived at the scene. The deputies went to Scott's resi-
dence, located at 5920 East US Highway 90 in Lee, where
Scott, who appeared heavily intoxicated, admitted to drink-
ing the beer and leaving the store.
Following the arrest of Randall Scott, both deputies
went to the residence of Donald Bowen, located at 319
Dade Street in Madison. Bowen, who also appeared heavi-
ly intoxicated, admitted to his part in the crime.
Bowen was also transported to the Madison County Jail
for petit theft. The subjects were also issued trespass
warnings for the Lee Jiffy Food Store. The Icehouse 12 oz.
beers were valued at $R115 each.

them. No, the gift is not
freedom outside the prison
walls. Instead, each inmate,
92,000 of them statewide,
will receive a pack of play-
ing cards.
These cards are no ordi-
nary decks. Each deck fea-
tures 52 unsolved "cold" cas-
es of homicide or missing
persons. The cards will be
used as an informational
tool to get inmates talking
about crimes they commit-
ted or crimes that other peo-
ple they knew may have
committed.
"What better way to get
them talking than to have
cards with the cases on
them," said FDLE'Special
Agent Tommy Ray
The cards, featuring cas-
es like Jennifer Odom, a 12-
year-old Pasco County girl


whose body was found six
days after she disappeared,
are being distributed all
over the state.
The cards cost a mere 80
cents a deck to manufacture,
all paid forby the Attorney
General's Crime Stoppers
Trust Fund. According to
Heather Smith, Public Rela-
tions Officer for FDLE, the.
fees assessed against crimi-
nals when they are incarcer-
ated go into the trust. Es-
sentially the inmates are
paying for the cards them-
selves.
At the state level, authori-
ties are already receiving
tips on some of the featured
cases. Wakulla Correctional
Institution received all of the
decks, and through that
prison they are being distrib-
uted.


.-. Spiritualist


fM!rs.


There are cash rewards
for any arrests made
through tips generated by
the cards. Inmates who can't
receive cash can still have
the money paid to their ac-
count or to a person of their
designation. Because Crime
Stoppers is an anonymous
program, people who call in
tips are given a tracking
number. This prevents any
violence against the tipper.
The cost of the decks is
minimal compared to the
thousands and thousands of
dollars spent investigating
only one cold case. Many
cases are open for years, and
thd cards have a potential for
a tremendous return.
The aim of the playing
cards is simple to solve
crimes.

Do All Your Stocks and
Mutual Funds Look Alike?
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Like most people, you probably gravitate toward things
that you're familiar with and that you like. If you enjoy
classical music, your shelves may be full of Beethoven and
Ravel. If you love pasta, your cupboards may be bulging
with spaghetti and ravioli. In most parts bf your life, there's
nothing wrong with this type of devotion but, if it's car-
ried over to your investment portfolio, you could run into
problems.
Specifically, you don't want to own too many of the
same types of stocks or mutual funds even if you like
these investments and are generally pleased with their per-
formance.
What's wrong with "the more, the merrier" approach to
investing? Simply put, it's too risky. Suppose you own a
bunch of stocks of companies that belong to the same indus-
try, or to just a couple of related industries. If a particular set
of economic or market forces hurt these industries, then
your stocks are going to take a hit and if most of your
investment dollars are tied up in these holdings, your over-
all portfolio will take a hit, too.
You might think that you can avoid this problem of
"over-concentration" by investing in mutual funds. After
all, mutual funds may invest in dozens of different compa-
nies at any time, so you're protected from any industry-spe-
cific downturns, aren't you? Actually, it's not quite that sim-
ple. There are many different types of mutual funds avail-
able on the market, and some of them do concentrate in a
particular market segment, such as technology. And when
something happens that affects these segments, such as the
bursting of the technology "bubble" in 2001, these types of
mutual funds will be negatively affected. If, in 2001, you
owned just one technology-heavy fund, your overall portfo-
lio probably wasn't shaken up too much, but if you had sev-
eral of these funds, you would definitely have felt some
pangs of regret when you opened your investment state-
ment.
Keep this in mind: Different investments may respond
differently to the same market forces. To give just one
example, a steep rise in interest rates may hurt the stocks of
financial services companies, but have relatively little effect
on pharmaceutical stocks. On the other hand, certain legal
or regulatory changes can have a big impact on drug com'-
pany stocks, but not cause a stir in the financial services
industry. Consequently, if you spread your investment dol-
lars among different types of stocks and mutual funds (as
well as bonds, certificates of deposit and government secu-
rities), you'll be less vulnerable to those forces all
beyond your control that may affect one particular class
of assets. Diversification does not guarantee a profit nor
does it protect against loss.
And here's one more reason to expand your investment
horizons: You probably won't be able to achieve all your
financial goals if you only own one type of investment,
such as growth stocks or growth-oriented mutual funds.
Over time, you will have other considerations, such as the
heed for income, so you'll need to address this in your port-
folio.
These factors also affect the way you approach your
401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan. You
may have a dozen or more investment options in your plan,
so don't just stick with one or two of them.
In the investment world, you've got many choices -
so take advantage of this freedom and flexibility. It can
potentially pay off in the long run:

very American idea that we
meet our challenges not as
isolated individuals but as
members of a true commu-

together. Our mission is
nothing less than to spark a

Tips On

Volunteering Wisely
By Ashley Bell
Greene Putlsraing. Inc.
volunteerismm is defined by
the willingness of people to
work on behalf of others
without the expectation of
pay or any other tangible
gain.
The first step to volunteer-
ing is finding an organization
or group that focuses on is.
sues that you can either relate
to or support. Volunteering is
most enjoyable when you
work with matters that are
important to you.
Next is evaluating the
skills you already retain and
those of which you wish to
gain. Some volunteers choose
an agency that they can learn
something from. which truly
is a payment. If you always
wanted to learn about assisted
living and what that occupa-
tion entails, volunteering at a
nursing home could be right
for you.
Some agencies, such as
non-profits, may require a vol-
unteer application and anri:n
terview. This is to ensure that
the applicant is right for the
job, and vice versa. When ap-
plying for volunteer work, al-
ways consider the amount of
time and length of volunteer-
ing you are willing to con-
tribute.
Volunteering as a family is
also an option, but keep in
mind the nonprofit organiza-
tion or facility needs to be
suitable for adults and chil-
dren (i.e. a church). Volunteer-
ing will teach your children
the values of giving without
receiving and bring your fam-
ily closer together.

f Jimmy Roebuck Honored



With Retirement NPay

Jimmy Roebuck was j immy
honored with a re- .- Roe-
tirement party on day
Monday, August buck's firstday
13. -i.:. "


S Jimmy Roe-
buck's first day
cutting hair was
on October 16,
1963. He worked for
Roy Smith of Lee
who owned Madison
Barber Shop located
at 303 S. Range
Street. Jimmy
worked for the Smith
family until 1969
when he was given
the opportunity to
buy the business
from Roy Smith's
widow. The shop re-
mained Madison Bar-
ber Shop for twenty
years. In 1989, the
business was grow-
ing and he needed a
bigger building so he
purchased a building
just up the street at
205 S. Range Street
and changed the
named to Roebuck's
Barber and Beauty
Shop. Jimmy re-
mained at 205 S.
Range Street until
1997 when the shop
S burned down. After
the fire, customers,
friends, and family
donated their time
and money to help
Jimmy relocate to its
present location at
422 S. Range St. Many
things have changed
for Jimmy over the
years and many em-
ployees have come and
gone. The exception is
two very dedicated and
loyal employees, Janice
Lookabill and Diane Kin-
sey who began working
for Jimmy in 1983 and are
still there along with Mar-
lene Webb and Rose Rye.
When asked why he be-
came a barber, Jimmy
replied, "My mother-in-law,
the late Edwina Peavy,
wanted me to have a job
in Madison. She did not
want me to move
Princess out of town so
she got me a scholarship
at the Tallahassee Bar--
ber School. Once I start-
ed school, I found that I
Like cutting hair so I just
kept doing it for 43
years."

Hamburg-Lovett Celebrates


Its 25th Annual Peanut Boil

By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishinrg Inc.SA
Compiled from information relieved from Patricia Brooks


Hamburg-L\vett \'Volunteer Fire Department is busy making plans for the 25th annual Peanut Boil, which will
be on Saturday, August 25. beginning at five p.m. "We've come a long way since the first Peanut Boil," says Pat
Brooks. volunteer fireman. Hambtur'gLovett VFD
The first Hamburg-Lovett Volunteer Fire Department was started by Herbert "Shorty" Norris and Gerald Norris;
charter members included Dewey and Mildred McLeod, C.J. Jones, Ben and Mary Jane Pfeil, Bud and Bertha Day,
Paul and Ann Brooks. Marshall Norris, as well as many others. Each person worked diligently to make sure the fire
department was established.
Current fire chief Jeff Norris said that at the first peanut boil, the
firemen had to go out to a field, pull up the peanuts, pick them off the vine,
wash them, and then set them on to boil. That first year, the firemen boiled
about three bushels, all cooked in washtubs over an open fire.
The Hamburg-Lovett VFD now cooks up over 48 bushels of peanuts a year in
aluminum tubs over gas burners.
The peanut boils have always helped to fund certain renovations or upgrades
to the fire department. The first building had a dirt floor and housed only one fire
truck. In 1997. a new firehouse was built on land donated by Charlie Moore and
Paul Brooks. Sr. The newer, bigger building houses three fire trucks, a kitchen, and bathrooms.
Every year the volunteers at Hamburg-Lovett announce a Fireman of The Year. In
1986. Gerald Norris was that fireman. He was recognized as State Fireman of The Year and
went to Tallahassee. He received an award from then governor Bob Graham.
The Hamburg-Lovett V FD has had many fundraisers, including fish fries at Greenville Coun-
try Christmas. quilt raffles, and even had a cookbook published featuring local recipes. However,
in 25 years. the Peanut Boil has become an expected holiday of sorts. Old friends and new friends
meet every year to catch up on things more people every year. The Peanut Boil is a lot of hard
work. but all that work boils down to some delicious peanuts and success!

Tips On Making Your


Diamond Look Larger

(NAPSI)- When ,- .
you shop for a dia- 9
mond engagement J .
ring, there are i
many ways to -
make the diamond
appear larger than
-its true carat
weight. Here are a 6 Mial'
few engagement
ring tips many
prospective brides
will say "I do" to:
Fancy-shaped
diamonds usually ,
look larger than
round diamonds of .,,..
equal weight, espe-
cially diamonds with elongated shapes, such as marquise,
oval and pear-shaped diamonds.
Choose an engagement ring with side stones. Small di-
amonds set into the band on either side of a center stone
won't necessarily make the focal diamond look larger, but
can give an engagement ring more overall pizzazz.
Many consumers now turn to unlikely outlets to find
that special jewelry For example, Modern Love at Sam's
Club offers an incredible line of bridal jewelry for every
kind of celebration. Brides can find incredible cuts such
as round, heart and princess, meaning they can have ex-
actly the style of center stone they wish. Modern Love is
available at 575 Sam's Club locations nationwide. To learn
more, visit www.modernlove.net.
Brilliant Idea--An engagement ring with side stones can
give it more overall pizzazz.

Women Find


Fun In Games
(NAPSI)- It seems women have gotten serious about video
games.
The Entertainment Software Association reports that the per-
centage of women over age 18 who play video games is significant-
ly higher than the percentage of boys 17 and younger who play
But as you might expect, women and boys have very different
tastes in gaming.
For instance, one of the more popular games with women is
called "Dream Day Honeymoon." Following the hit game "Dream
Day Wedding," it's the second in a series of romantic seek-and-find
adventures that chronicle the lives of the popular virtual couple
Jenny and Robert.
This time, the lovebirds are on an exciting Hawaiian honey-
moon and in search of the perfect souvenir. Players help them un-
cover hidden treasures in beautiful and romantic tropical loca-,
tions including Pa'ani Beach, Spa Luana and Tony's Tiki Bar.
Gamers who unlock an extra "first class" level help the happy cou-
ple solve their honeymoon crisis before time runs out.

Carl Nlendheim and Trisha Plain of Madison an-
nounce the marriage of their daughter. Heather
Mendheim, to Chris Smith. son of Mr. Russell
Smith, and Ms. Sharon Smith of Madison.
The couple will unite in marriage on September
1, 2007. at the Four Freedoms Park Gazebo in Madi-
son. The ceremony will begin at 6 o'clock in the
evening.
A reception will be held immediately following
the ceremony at the Elks Lodge. All friends and
family are invited. No local invitations will be sent.

That Text Message She Loved?


(NAPSI) Words alone
may not be enough to sum
up a couple's love, but a
quick text message might
be the key to fueling the
fire.
In fact, 60 percent of
adults used text messages
to tell others they missed
or loved them, according to
a survey by Tegic Commu-
nications. So maybe it
shouldn't come as a big sur-
prise that the latest trend
in jewelry is to engrave per-
sonal messages on couples'
engagement rings and wed-
ding bands.
"You're seeing more cou-


ples who are used to texting
for business and other rea-
sons now engraving mes-
sages like 'Our Love' and
'Forever' on their rings, es-
pecially echo boomers-the
children of baby boomers,"
says jewelry and style ex-
pert Michael O'Connor.
"That's why many Platinum
rings are becoming wider.
Platinum is the perfect met-
al for engraving meaning-
ful messages because it
won't wear down like other
metals, ensuring the mes-
sage will last forever."

cups of water or a sports drink.
Refueling The muscles and liver are most ready for replen-
ishment immediately after exercise. Within 30 minutes of exercise,
consume some form of carbohydrates, such as a glass of juice or a
w piece of fruit, as well as a moderate amount of protein. These help
jump-start the replenishment of energy stores and the building

late milk, which contains carbohydrates and proteins works just
i as well or better.

Clues When It's Time To Consider Assisted Living


When is the right time to suggest parents or loved
ones can no longer live safely on their own? Sometimes,
the decision is forced by illness, an accident or other cir-
cumstances related to aging.
For other elders, changes are subtle. In a special re-
port on assisted living, the July issue of Mayo Clinic
Women's HealthSource lists warning signs to help
gauge when seniors need assistance in the home or al-
ternative living arrangements. These signs may also in-
dicate that a call or visit to a primary care doctor is in
order.
Weight loss. Losing weight without trying is a signal
that something is wrong. It can indicate a significant
health problem, such as cancer, dementia,,depression or
heart failure. Weight loss can also be related to difficul-
ty finding the energy to cook or problems with grasping
cooking tools. Changes in the ability to taste and smell
can make food less appealing.
Poor home maintenance. Piled,up dirty dishes or
clutter, overgrown grass or any big negative changes in
home upkeep are clues that seniors may be having
health problems or age-related changes that hinder
them from keeping up with household chores.
Lack of personal hygiene. Failure to keep up with


daily routines teeth brushing, bathing and basic
grooming can be signs of trouble.
Mood changes. Everyonehas good and bad days, but
a different mood or outlook on life could be a sign of de-
pression or another health concern. Losing interest in
hobbies or daily activities is not a natural sign of aging.
Memory loss. Forgetfulness tends to increase with
age, but there's a big difference betweencnormal absent-
mindedness and the type of memory loss associated
with conditions such as Alzheimer's disease or other
forms of dementia. Early warning signs can include re-
peatedly asking the same questions; having difficulty
finding words; using inappropriate words; and being un-
able to complete familiar tasks.
Mobility problems. Muscle weakness, joint problems
and other age-related changes can make it difficult to
move around and perform basic tasks or chores. Un-
steadiness increases the risk of falling. And falls can
cause major injuries and even death in older adults.
It can be difficult for all involved to determine that ini-
dependent living is no longer safe or practical. Some-
times, a family member's expression of concern can be
the impetus needed for the elder to realize it's time to see
a care provider or consider other living arrangements.

Dear Students and Parents,
n August 20th, Madison Academy began another year of provid-
ing "excellence in education" for its students. This year is espe-
cially exciting since this year marks the 40th Anniversary of
Madison Academy! The faculty and staff of Madison Academy
are committed to maintaining our high standards in offering a
superior education for our children, an education that takes into
account the academic, spiritual, moral, and emotional development of
each child.
Once again, it has been a busy summer with several improvements
made, both inside and out. Outside, the pre-K playground has been com-
pletely renovated and a new sports field for soccer, softball and baseball
has been created for our older students. New landscaping in the front of
the school has included our "Walk of Fame" engraved bricks. Inside, the
library/media center is full of new surprises, which include the installa-
tion of the Accelerated Reader Program.
We are delighted to have several new families and look forward to get-
ting to know each of you personally. If you would like to enroll your child
in one of our future 3K or 4K programs, please do so as soon as possible.
As new families make application for admission, our future pre-K classes
are being filled.
Please feel free to call if we can be of any assistance. We look forward
to another great year!
Sincerely,
Michael Akes
Head of School

Living Off Social Security
The majority of people are finding other ways of living
apart from social security because the situation is not al-
tered to a great extent by the social security system. Crit-
ics argue that social security aims at providing security
for the future while majority of people have a dark pre-
sent. This segment of the society wishes to have a better
present than a fictional bright future.
There are several factors that affect the social security
benefits that are available to individuals including the
current inflation level, retirement age, average income
level during the working period and above all the age of
the individual. People tend to rely less on the social secu-
rity that is prone to amendments quite often creating a sit-
uation of uncertainty in their minds. .
The working group of individuals tend to underesti-
mate their life expectancy level and in the process the
number of years they would spend living off their retire-
ment investments. Social security offers a tax advantage
but that again gets waived off on any withdrawals made
by the investors from their respective pension funds.
It cannot however be denied that social security re-
forms have opened doors to new perspectives and ideas for
the generations to come.

Keeping Cholesterol

Under Control
There are two types of cholesterol, low density lipopro-
tein (LDL) and high density lipoprotein (HDL). LDL is of-
ten known as "bad" cholesterol, whereas HDL is known as
"good." The "good" level can acceptably be higher than
the "bad," can prevent an individual from storing up a
great amount of LDL in the body. There are a great many
foods that can help an individual raise this level while
lowering his or her LDL. Additionally, a lifestyle change
can help you raise or lower the specific level. Ceasing to
smoke or excessively drink will also benefit,your health in
additional to your LDL and HDL levels. Beginning an ex-
ercise regimen will enable individuals of all ages to lower
or raise their levels in addition to creating an overall
healthier well being.
As previously stated, scientists now believe cholesterol
levels can be inherited problems. For this reason, many
individuals with high levels that cannot be controlled
with diet and exercise are prescribed medication by their
physicians. Although medication should not be your first
option, many individuals find certain pharmaceuticals to
be extremely effective in the fight to control their levels.
Regardless of your method of treatment, individuals of
all ages should carefully monitor both their LDL and HDL
levels.

Senior Citizens Celebrate A Special Day


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.

Senior citizens all over the United States of America
celebrated National Senior Citizen's Day on August 21. In
1988, President Ronald Reagan made the stunning Procla-
mation 5847, commending the achievements of older peo-
ple and reserving a special day in honor of "the senior cit-
izens who mean so much to our land."
Reagan went on in his speech to say that Americans
owe senior citizens a heartfelt salute for all that they've
accomplished in the past, and all the things that they will
accomplish,
"We can best demonstrate our gratitude and esteem,"
Reagan said, "by making sure that our communities are
good places in which to mature and grow older places in
which older people can participate to the fullest, and can
find the encouragement, acceptance, assistance, and ser-
vices they need to continue to lead lives of independence
and dignity"
On Tuesday, August 21, seniors were invited to a deli-
cious covered dish luncheon. Madison and Greenville Se-
nior Citizen's Centers worked together under the direc-
tion of Older American Act Coordinator Joan Beck to
have a fun filled day of fellowship.
The covered dish luncheon began promptly at 11:30
a.m. and was followed by dessert.
On August 24, the Senior Citizen's Center is hosting yet
another Health Expo, this time with the following ven-
dors:


Maximum Care Services
Tallahassee Wound Care
Elder Support Services
ARCH Rural Outreach Program
McConnaughhay Law Firm
Guardian Medical Monitoring
Epilepsy Association of the Big Bend
Neurological Science Center
Madison County Memorial Hospital
American Red Cross
Office of Public Guardian
United Health Care
Madison Health Department
Big Bend Hospice
Eye Savers
Madison Senior Citizen's Council

Sponsors include:
Nestle Waters
Madison Sporting Goods

The Health Expo will be held at Lee City Hall, on 286
NE County Road 255, August 24, from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Expo will feature free health screenings, free educa-
tion on topics facing today's seniors, and even door prizes!
Refreshments will be provided!
For more information about the above listed events, or
for general information concerning activities geared
specifically toward senior citizens, contact Joan Beck,
Older American Act Coordinator, at (850).973-4241.


Dealing With Dementia


Lately, many use the terms,"dementia" and
"Alzheimer's Disease" interchangeably. The fact remains
that not everyone who is suffering with dementia is deal-
ing with Alzheimer's. Statistically, Alzheimer's accounts
for about 50% to 75% of all dementia cases. Other rea-
sons for this disorder may be due to blood vessel disease
or "mini-stokes" as well as a variety of less common ail-
ments that affect the brain.
Admitting that you or someone you love is affected by
this old-age disease can be difficult. Often the afflicted
person is the first to realize that things just aren't right,
and the realization can be frightening and frustrating.
Simple tasks that were easily accomplished earlier in life
may become difficult, such as driving, walking to famil-
iar locations without getting lost, cooking, or holding a
conversation.
Although Alzheimer's can often progress quite slowly,
other forms of dementia take a faster path. This can be
difficult for the individual's family or caretaker, as the
level of responsibility for the impaired person increases


quickly. Those afflicted may begin forgetting to do little
things that most take for granted, such as turning off
the water after showering or turning off a burner or
oven, both of which can be dangerous to the individual
or those with whom they're living.
This is a confusing time for dementia patients, as they
sometimes possess moments of clarity, making it diffi-
cult to understand why they are no longer trusted with
miniscule tasks and why they have lost their freedom.
Many caregivers attempt heroic measures, promising
to take care of their loved one until his/her death. How-
ever, this is often a mistake. Caregiver burnout occurs
often among thdse who are caring for those with any sort
of dementia-related disorder.
It's best to look at long-range options, whether it be
placement in an adult day care program, respite care, or
full-time living arrangements in a nursing facility. To-
day, many assisted-living communities and nursing
homes specialize in dementia care, making them an ideal
choice.


Entertaining Seniors On Grandparents' Day


brate Grandparents Day
with near and dear ones.
They spend their retire-
ment years in nursing
homes in most occasions.
The Grandparents Day, cel-
ebrated on the first Sunday
after Labor Day, is more
than about celebrating
with our own relatives and
we should keep aside our
concerns for our family
members on that day,and
think beyond. The elderly
community has con-
tributed so much to shape
our universe and now it's
our time to show how
much we respect them.
So, when you are away
from your own grandpar-
ents, you can visit a nurs-
ing home and provide some
companionship and enter-
tainment to the other elder-
ly members of our society
and spend the day with
them. Here are some nice
tips for entertainment that
would definitely help you
to plan your activities
when you visit them.
Wish the residents a
Happy Grandparents Day,
recognize the Day as a holi-
day, treat the elderly as re-
spected citizens and make
sure the entertainments
are special and apt for the


persons and the occasion.
Usually, playing cards and
board games like chess,
checkers and bridge are
thoroughly enjoyed by the
older people. You can also
spend a quiet, relaxed af-
ternoon with them by
watching a fun family
movie.
Go for a walk with them
to cheer them up. Sharing
of special memories or
looking through family
thoto albums with them


can make them happier
too.
Entertaining the elderly
on that special occasion,
every year, is not a hard
task when you have so
many things to do. If they
are not in a condition for
any kind of physical activi-
ty, you can listen to them
and let them share their
life experiences with you
because most of these lone-
ly people will be grateful to
you for vour comnanv
