It's not often that North Florida Com-

al spotlight. However, a new ranking of
community colleges by The Washington
Monthlymagazine released August 21,
2007, thrust the small, rural institution
right up there as sixth among 30 of the
top community colleges in the country.

Thursday Thunderstorm Wreaks Havoc In Madison County


Photo Submitted
In the photo Judy McClain of 1150 Duval Pond Road, shows the large tree that fell on their goldfish pond.
Neighbors in the area had similar yards of tree debris. Judy said the wind came out of the northeast and
they lost their electricity about 10:45 p.m. It remained off for about five hours.


Late in the evening of Au-
gust 23, a thunderstorm
came through the northern
part of Madison County
with lightning, rain and high
winds.
The Madison County
Road Department states that
most of the damage to trees
was in the Pinetta to Cherry


Lake area.
Duval Pond Roaa, which
runs between Highway 53
and Rocky Ford Road, about
six miles north of the City of
Madison, and four miles
south of Cherry Lake, had
multiple sites of tree damage
on private property and left
the public road in the need of


clearing. Power lines were
down on Hwy 53 North and
trees were down on Highway
145, leading northeast from
Madison toward Pinetta.
Wind gusts of 30 mph
were estimated in the City of
Madison, as storm passed
from the northeast to the
southwest.

think tank.
Four other community colleges from the Sunshine state
also made the list: Lake City Community College, Chipola
College in Marianna, Valencia College in Orlando and
Florida Community College at Jacksonville.
President Morris G. Steen Jr. said, "While it is nice to
receive the recognition of a number six national ranking
of community colleges by The Washington Monthly, the
important issue is that our students receive a very good
education during their tenure at NFCC. Our high reten-
tion and graduation rates coupled with the success of our
students at Florida's state universities are strong testimo-
ny to NFCC's high quality"
The ranking is the first of its kind for community col-
leges on a national scale. The Washington Monthly attrib-
uted its formulation of a community college ranking to
four factors:
C 43 percent of college freshmen begin their education
at two-year institutions;
n community colleges have the "toughest job in higher
education: teaching lower-income students." At NFCC,
75% of students received some type of financial aid;
O community college students with a host of barriers
from family worries to working full-time and being inade-
quately prepared for college work are especially in need of
quality education; and
0 the American economy needs community colleges to
produce tomorrow's skilled, sophisticated workforce.
The magazine's ranking relies heavily on data from the
Community College Survey of Student Engagement or
CCSSE (85 percent) and graduation rates (15 percent). CC-
SSE data are available online: www.CCSSE.org
Findings from 2005-2006 were
the basis of the Washington Monthly's selection method.
Like all rankings colleges or football teams this one
has generated its share of controversy CCSSE opposes the
use of its survey results for ranking community and tech-
nical colleges cautioning that doing so might "obscure
complex dimensions of institutional performance and stu-
dent behavior." Also, some critics say that graduation
rates, as an indication of success, do not take into account
the open enrollment and extended missions of community
colleges. The American Association of Community Col-
leges discounted the need for rankings. Nonetheless, na-
tional college rankings are an anticipated tradition arid
prelude to the fall college term.
In a recent release of CCSSE 2007 survey results, NFCC
again demonstrated a high level of student satisfaction,
particularly in areas of student/faculty interaction and
support for learners. Steen said, "We are delighted that
NFCC did so well on the Community College Survey of
Student Engagement, scoring above the national mean in
almost every category." ,
"CCSSE results indicate that NFCC students are deeply
involved in their college learning experiences and are
very satisfied with the teaching and learning practices de-
livered by the college. NFCC will use the CCSSE data to
make the NFCC experience even better," said Doug
Brown, dean of the Educator Preparation Institute, re-
cruitment, retention and grants at NFCC.
Brown also said, 'While NFCC is pleased to fare so well
in comparison with other institutions, it recognizes that
rankings are highly subjective and frequently do not take
into account the widely disparate missions of community
colleges."
Still and all, NFCC is basking in the spotlight. As the
Washington Monthly article noted, "Great teaching can
happen anywhere." It happens every day here at NFCC.

ment Board.
The Florida Legislature called for a rollback, where tax-
es would remain at 2006 levels. The June measure, which
goes into effect at the start of the next fiscal year on Octo-
ber 1, is a tax cut and cap that requires cities and counties
to roll back their annual tax rates to 2006-07 levels, as well
as mandating additional cuts. However, governing bodies
are permitted to override the measure with a two-thirds
supermajority vote.
Madison County did not opt to use the supermajority
vote.
A constitutional amendment, to be decided January 29,
2008, would replace the current $25,000 homestead exemp-
tion and the three percent a-year Save Our Homes cap
with a new exemption of as much as $195,000.

TRIM notice, please call the Property Appraiser's Office at

Attention Madison
County residents!
Are you aware that it is
LEGAL to steal a car in
Madison County. That is,
if you are under the guise
of being an auto mechan-
ic. Do not expect support
from your local Sheriff's
dept. They don't want to
get involved!
This is my story,
lengthy as it may be in'
hopes of saving some oth-
er naive individual from
the same situation. I hap-
pen to own and hold the
legal title to a Dodge
Neon, that had some me-
chanical difficulty I had
a reputable Madison me-
chanic work on it but
without success. He did-
n't charge a dime because
he couldn't fix the prob-
lem. Well we noticed a
new garage had opened at
a local store. My hus-
band spoke with the me-
chanic, I use the term
"mechanic" loosely, and
he assured us that he
could fix this vehicle. We
gave him permission to
bring the car to this place
of business. Okay all
well and good! He began
to tinker with it, we
stopped in a couple of
times to check on it.
Then Lo and Behold we
drove up one evening, the
garage was closed signs
had been taken down and
our car was GONE! No
one knew where he lived
and the number on the
front of the garage was
useless as we could never
reach any one. No mes-
sage was left as to the

was GONE! Eventually
we went to the Sheriff's
dept. to report it as
stolen. No contract had
been signed no estimate
had been given, this shop
just closed overnight. A
deputy finally located
this person's residence at
Cherry Lake with our car
in front of his rented

car still was not running.
Okay the story gets
better! We want our car
back, so we went back to
talk to the Sheriff only to
be told there was nothing
he could do.
If we want our car
back, we have to file a
$350 petition to the court
and go before a judge be-
fore the LAW will make
him return the car. I do
not have $350 so what
now?
This LOW LIFE con
man has managed to
STEAL our car and he in-

of illegal immigrants across our southern
border before we are willing to accept any
follow-on provisions.
The great 19th Century statesman Henry
Clay said, "Of all human powers operating
on the affairs of mankind, none is greater
than that of competition." If we really
want to improve the performance of some-
thing like public education, isn't it impera-
tive that we introduce competition? Isn't
that what school choice is all about?
Remember our recent discussion about
benchmarks? Let's draw a distinction --
there is a difference between process
benchmarks and performance benchmarks.
The failed immigration reform bill was
chalk-full of process benchmarks because
the politicians either didn't know how or
were afraid to measure a reduction in ille-
gal immigration. On the other hand, a per-
formance benchmark would measure how
many people are illegally crossing our bor-
ders so that we would know whether or not
our efforts are bearing fruit. Performance
benchmarks measure the bottom line.
An important part of security in the
post-9/11 world is for ordinary citizens to
report suspicious behavior they observe to
authorities. The Congressional Republi-
cans had a fight with their Democrat rivals
because GOP lawmakers wanted to protect
these citizens from lawsuits emanating
from their reports. The Republicans won
out but for a time, it seemed that Democ-
rats were more interested in protecting the
business of trial lawyers than the lives of
ordinary citizens.
Universal health care means that all of
us would look to the government to pro-
vide our health care services. Do we really
want to do that? Would someone give me
just one instance where government pro-
vides a service more effectively and effi-
ciently when it is also available in the pri-
vate sector? As a wise sage once said, if
you think health care is expensive now,
just wait until the government is the sole
provider.
When General Petraeus returns from
Iraq to Washington in September and gives
his report on the effect of the surge strate-
gy, will those Congressional Democrats who
seem to be invested in defeat even bother to


show up and lis-
S ten to what he
has to say? Have
they already
made up their
mind and decided
that facts are ir-
relevant?
The Democrat-
-- 4- ic National Com-
Sriittee has decid-
ed to strip Flori-
Vectors da of all its dele-
gates to the na-
tional convention because our legislature
decided to move the primary election up to
January 29. What a slap in the face to both
the legislature and to state Democrats!
In a recent piece in the New York Times,
Michael O'Hanlon and Kenneth Pollock re-
ported after a recent trip to Iraq that there
are many positive signs as a result of the
surge. Both of these gents are long-time
critics of the Administration's handling of
the war. Could the tide be turning? Will it
matter?
In the second paragraph of the Declara-
tion of Independence, Thomas Jefferson
writes, "we are endowed by our Creator
with certain inalienable rights that among
these are life, liberty and the pursuit of
happiness." To recount, our rights are con-
veyed by God and the first of these is the
right to life. Think about it.
The other night, I listened to a college ad-
ministrator explain that the cost of student
tuition was going to rise because the legisla-
ture did not appropriate enough money this
year to run our state universities. At no
time did the interviewer ask the adminis-
trator why the cost of operating our col-
leges has risen at three times the rate of in-
flation over the past two decades. Isn't that
the real question we should be asking?
Congress wants to expand the State Chil-
dren's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP)
by increasing the tax on cigarettes, but a
static analysis shows we don't have enough
smokers to pay for the new program. Got it
we need to save the children so everyone
light up! What kind of morons are we elect-
ing? Maybe they think we're the morons.
The latest "option" for school backpacks
is a bullet-proof layer of material. I can't
imagine what is coming next. I suppose by
the time school uniforms include full body
armor, we'll have to admit it's time to close
the school.
Members of Congress have defended ear-
marks including those from transportation
and highway funds with this logic: no one
understands what is best for the people in
our district like we do. Following the col-
lapse of the 1-35W bridge in Minneapolis
earlier this month where 13 people died and
a hundred were injured, I profoundly dis-
agree.

$3.8 Million Available To

Florida Counties Soon
MONETARY RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO HELP KEEP
MENTALLY ILL OUT OF JAIL


Adding Real Estate to Your Portfolio:
How Much? What Type?
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
You may have heard that "real estate is always a
good investment." However, that's a "blanket" statement
and not terribly useful. In fact, it raises many questions:
Does real estate really go up in value all the time? What
type of real estate should I invest in? What percentage of
my portfolio should be devoted to real estate? Once you
know these answers, you'll be in a much better position
to decide if, and how, you should incorporate real estate
into your investment picture.
Of course, real estate investing has been a hot topic
over the past several years, as housing prices soared in
many areas around the country. Even though the market
cooled considerably in 2006, nationwide home prices are
up 29.2 percent over the past three years and 64.3 percent
over the past five ,years, according to Business Week
magazine. And of all the homes purchased in 2006, 22
percent were bought for investment purposes, according
to the National Association of Realtors. While that 22
percent figure is down from 28 percent in 2005, it indi-
cates that plenty of people are still buying properties in
hopes of achieving a source of income, capital apprecia-
tion or a'combination of both.
If you're thinking of buying investment property,
keep a couple of points in mind. First, contrary to myth,
home prices do not always go up. As proven by the
results in 2006, housing prices, like stock prices, can -
and will go up and down. So, don't buy property with
the expectation of constant price appreciation it won't
happen. The second item to remember is that once you
buy property, your investment hasn't ended it's just
begun. You'll need to pay for upkeep, remodeling and
property taxes all of which can be expensive and
you'll have to find good tenants which can be a hassle.
Does this mean you should avoid investing in real,
estate? No. Actually, you may benefit from owning some
real estate, because real estate price movements tend to
have a low correlation with the price movements of
stocks and bonds. So, if market conditions are hurting the
prices of your other investments, your real estate hold-
ings might provide you with a buffer against a more
severe drop in your portfolio's value. But as a general
rule, you should probably limit your real estate holdings
to no more than 5 percent to 10 percent of your portfolio.
To avoid the expense and potential problems of
being responsible for a piece of physical property, you
may want to consider shares of a real estate investment
trust (REIT), which operates buys, leases and sells com-
mercial and multifamily real estate. You can typically
buy REITs in amounts that are appropriate to your needs,
and REITs offer diversification by property- type and
location. (Diversification does not guarantee a profit and
does not protect against loss.)
Also, most REITs provide attractive current income,
which can help cushion the blow should real estate prices
decline or remain stagnant for a long period of time.
Income paid on REITs is subject to the individuals tax
bracket and does not benefit from the tax reduction on
dividends that may be available on equity investments.
Your financial advisor can help you determine if a
REIT is suitable for you. If so, you might have found a
smart way to get in on "the ground floor" of real estate.

Founder's Day at Hickory Grove is just
around the corner, and plans are slowly
coming together. By the first of October,
things will be totally put together. The fun-
filled day is planned for Saturday October
20.
Church members are busily making
their individual crafts that will be sold in
the


the church.
The folks at Hickory Grove are always
looking for something new and innovative
to show the local folks at Founder's Day and
this year will be no exception. There is a
garden that is presently being planted, and
if the local deer population doesn't eat the
garden, there will be a vegetable garden,
and a real, live mule will be plowing in the
garden, just like in the days of old. Our
Grandfathers used to till the soil with
mules for their home gardens, and we will
be doing the same thing at Founder's Day
07.


There may be just one problem with the
mule plowing, and that is to find someone
who has the nerve to actually plow the
mule in front of folks. About the only one
we know is longtime church member
Aaron Williams. If we can get him out of
the easy chair long enough, he and others
will demonstrate this lost art.
No matter what your fancy whether it be
for good home-smoked bar-b-que or home-
made ice cream, or collard greens, you will
not want to miss Founder's Day 07 this year.
Everyone is welcome and we look forward
to seeing all of our friends at Church.

Preserving The Gown


The Victorian lovers, ever the sentimen-
talists, were for ever giving each other
meaningful gifts.
One of the popular tokens was a heart-
shaped locket in which was placed a lock of
hair of the beloved. Few people were aware
that the tradition of presenting a lock of
hair had really nothing to do with love, or
anything remotely to do with love.
It all started in the days when prisoners
were taken during a battle. If the prisoner
turned out to be important enough for
someone to care whether he was alive or
dead, they would cut of a lock of his hair
and send it to the family concerned. It was
like a ransom note and less savage than cut-
ting off a finger. Being more trusting than
we are, apparently the hair was enough to
convince the relatives and friends, that in-
deed the loved one was a prisoner in the
hands of the bad person and if they wanted
him back, they'd better pay.
While the popularity of the locket came
and went, rings as gifts became even more
popular as a symbol of attachment. In par-


Deciding what bridal jewelry to wear on
your special day is an exciting, fun part of
planning your wedding. The possibilities are
endless and exciting.
They range from bridal tiaras to diamond
earring sets. However, there are a few things
you need to keep in mind before you make
your final selections. Here are a few quick
tips to help.
First, you will likely want to wear your en-
gagement ring. Most brides do. Other rings
are acceptable. Just make sure they don't de-
tract from your engagement ring. When your
husband-to-be slides your wedding band on
your finger, the last thing you'd want is for
people to be looking at the gorgeous, but
huge, multi-gemmed ring you picked up for a
song at the vintage shop downtown.
You will also want to be sure you have his
wedding band all ready Since bands are gen-
erally bought in matching sets, this shouldn't
be a problem.
Next, when choosing other accessories for
your bridal jewelry, you want to keep in mind
the color of your gown. Whatever you choose
should coordinate with your gown and not
compete with it. You don't want to wear jew-
elry that overpowers your wedding dress and
takes attention away from it. Other consider-
ations when picking out your bridal jewelry
are your skin tone and hair color.
Another tip is to keep it simple. While you
want to show your personal flair, you don't
want to overdo. Pearls are classic choices and
for a good reason. They're tasteful, simple,
and flatter most skin tones. Borrowing your
mother's adds an extra personal touch to
your choice. Matching sets of other types of
jewels are also an easy way to ensure your
jewelry is coordinated and compliments you
wedding dress.
One last thing you want to consider when
choosing your bridal jewelry is the time of
day your wedding will take place. Afternoon
weddings tend to be more subdued, and


ticular, by using gemstones, all sorts of
messages were transmitted through the
rings.
It could be, that the first letter of each
gemstone could spell a word. If the gentle-
man had a name short and plain, the word
could be his own name. Or, if he 1ad access
to more gemstones than most people, he
might spell out a word of endearment to
the bride. Thinking up a word in itself was
a bit of a bother. But, when it comes to love,
nothing is too much trouble. And with such
gemstones as Malachite, Carnelian, Garnet,
Amethyst, Onyx, Jade, Turquoise, Dia-
mond, Pearls, Emerald, Ruby, Quartz,
Jasper, Sapphire, Onyx, Rhodonite, and
Sodilite, you could always come up with
something like 'Dearest'
It seemed men were always aware of,
how susceptible women were to jewellery
In the middle ages many men kept a ring
suspended from their hat bands just on the
off-chance that the right woman would
come along.
Be prepared was their motto.


you'll want bridal jewelry with a little less
flash. Evening weddings, though, are a lot
more dramatic. You can bling to the max
without fear of overdoing-just don't let any
accessory take away from that oh, so special
moment when that wedding band goes on
your finger!


The bride's mom may take it home after
the reception, hang it in a closet, and cry a
little whenever she opens that particular
door. The new bride, busy writing thank-
you notes, settling into a new home, and
juggling a new schedule, is not thinking
"wedding gown."
But when you consider all the time, ef-
fort, and money that went into finding the
right gown, it should be au-
tomatic to plan for its fu-
ture. In some families, of
course, the gown might be ('
handed down to another
member of the family, the
old "something borrowed"
routine. But no matter I -
whether the gown was
bought or borrowed, they all
have one thing in common:
the bride's sentimental at-
tachment. It's because of
this attachment that gowns
require special handling.
And the older the dress, the
more challenging the
restoration and cleaning
process.
The best way to preserve
a wedding gown, according
to experts, is to take it to a
professional dry cleaner for
cleaning and packing away
If you go this route, check
the gown over carefully first
for stains, spills and tears
before taking it to the cleaners. You can
point them out.for special attention; differ-
ent types of stains require different treat-
ments on delicate fabrics. Dry cleaners
who specialize in such once-in-a-lifetime
restorations will check the gown for loose


pearls, threads, buttons and other prob-
lems. Once the dress is cleaned and
pressed, it is ready to be stored permanent-
ly This process, called heirlooming, in-
volves storing the gown on a hanger in a
heavy plastic bag or wrapping it in acid-
free tissue in a vacuum-sealed archival
box. The process can cost from $150 and
up.
The dress should be
stored in a cool, dry area
away from fluorescent light.
WA. \ Ultraviolet light will destroy
silk very fast. The dress
) ) should not be stored in the
attic, garage or basement
because of extreme temper-,
ature and humidity
changes. Avoid storing in
wooden dressers even
cedar chests because the
wood gives off gasses and is
highly acidic, which affects
the dress.
Probably one of the bet-
ter places for it is under the
bed, mainly so it won't be
tripped over. Because molds
J I grow there, the area should
be vacuumed more frequent-
ly. The trickmore than any-
thing is humidity in the
house. The ideal tempera-
ture is 65 degrees with a hu-'
midity level of, 48 percent.
Humidity that gets over 55 ,
percent for any length of time will grow
mold. Even though the expense for this
process may seem high, it will be worth it *
to you, to some day see your daughter
walking down the aisle in the dress you
wore on your special day.


kIU1nin AD WonderALful [ W IIeddIQ~i ng ~1ShowerI


Almost every bridal shower these days
is given a theme as a much more diplomat-
ic and fun way to pin point what you as the
bride and groom will receive. The most
successful parties and showers will be
ones that are personalized to fit the inter-
ests and needs of the lucky couple.
Whether you choose a scuba party and
dive with your guests or a lingerie shower
and giggle with the ladies from work, the
main idea is to have fun. These are some
common shower themes:
Round the Clock The couple is show-
ered with gifts designed to be used during
the specific hours of the day. Each guest is
assigned an hour of the day and chooses
an appropriate gift. These showers tend to
be very entertaining and therefore a good
way to bridge friends of both the bride
and groom. A guest
given the 7:00 hour
may give a coffee -(;..
grinder and spatula
to the couple, for ex-
ample.
Professionals
Only This is per-
fect for a career-ori-
ented couple. Gifts.
may include day-
planners, calendars,
monogrammed sta-
tionery, even com-
puter software
packages.
Recipe and
Cooking This
shower is filling for
both the couple and I
the guests who bring their favorite dish
and give the couple the recipe and any
kitchen gadget or exotic ingredient to help
them make it. This is a fun shower for a
small group of close friends. The host may
choose to send out recipe cards to all the
guests, so the recipes can later be com-
piled as a set.
Garden Shower Another good idea
for couples who share a gardening hobby
or are starting out in their first home. Not
only gardening tools, but bulbs and plants
are good gift ideas.
Wine and Cheese This theme is per-
fect for wine aficionados. The party may
become a wine tasting with guests bring-
ing a bottle for the couple and a bottle for
the party tasting. Serve a variety of
cheeses and fruits and finish with
gourmet coffee and a wicked chocolate
dessert tray.


Get-Fit-for-Married-Life This party
is ideal for the couple who exercises to-
gether. All the guests come dressed in their
favorite sports ornfitness activity and gifts
range from sporting gear to attire (match-
ing sweat suits).
Themes designed to help couples re-
ceive the types of gifts they most need:
Kitchen This shower is especially ap-
propriate for couples who don't already
have a household set up. Any gifts for
pantry or kitchen from spaghetti servers
to coffee grinders.
Bath Good if you need items like tow-
els and linens, bath oil beads or laundry
hampers.
Boudoir This theme can also include
linens or go the-way of lingerie for the
bride and slippers for the groom.
Household -
Perfect if you
need things like
ironing boards,
brooms, tele-
phones, vacuum .
cleaners and gad-'
gets like shower
heads and small
appliances for the
kitchen.
Tool A good
k way to include
the sometimes
overlooked
groom. They are
especially ideal
for the couple in
their first "fixer-
upper" home.
Gifts can range from drills to saws to tool
boxes.
Travel Another idea that helps with
honeymoon plans would be a travel show-
er. Besides luggage, you may receive travel
alarms, camera and film, or gift certificate
for a romantic dinner or souvenir.
A special note to brides and shower
hosts:
It is always appropriate to have a theme
that might suggest a gift idea to guests,
and if guests inquire, tell them where the
couple is registered. It is not, however, ap-
propriate to include "request for money" or
"list gift" suggestions in shower invita-
tions. Typically close family members
(mother, sister) do not host showers for
brides where guests are expected to bring
gifts. A bridal luncheon or bridal tea is ap-.
propriate to honor a special relative get-
ting married.

Prostate Cancer Threatens Life And Sexuality


By Jessica Higginbotham
13reene Publishing, Inc.
Prostate cancer is most often diagnosed in older men, at the av-
irage age of 72. The number of patients who die of other illnesses
lue to age before a diagnosis of prostate cancer is made is stagger-
ng. Prostate cancer remains more than a threat to a man's life -
t's a threat to his sexuality.
The warning signs include:
Dull pain in the lower pelvic area
Urgency of urination
Difficulty starting urination
Weak urine flow
Intermittent Urine Flow
Sensation that bladder doesn't empty
Frequent urination at night
Blood in urine
Painful ejaculation


General pain in lower back, hips, and upper thighs
Loss of appetite and weight
Persistent bone pain
Risk factors for prostate cancer include:
Age Men over age 50 are more susceptible
Race Black men are more likely to have prostate cancer
Family History Genetics play a part in risk
Diet A high fat diet increases risk
Vasectomy
High Testosterone
Certain cancer screening methods are used to detect
prostate cancer. Men over age 50 should have a screening done
annually
A digital rectal exam, or DRE, is a way for doctors to feel if
there is a cancerous growth on the prostate or if the prostate is
enlarged. However, a DRE does not always reveal cancer, espe-
cially in the early stages.


A prostate specific antigen test uses a blood sample to
determine if an antigen specific to the prostate.is present in the
body Antigens are present when fighting an infection, cancer, or a
virus. If the antigen is in the bloodstream, further tests are usual-
ly in order.
A trans rectal ultrasound is used to see if a cancerous growth
is present, or to see if the prostate is enlarged. A hose, about the
circumference of a cigar, is inserted into the rectum. Ultrasound
technology uses sound waves to create an image of the prostate.
Should a growth be found, a prostate biopsy is ordered by a
medical professional. Thin samples of the prostate tissue are ex-
tracted and sent to a lab for testing.
The stages of prostate cancer are:
I microscopic, confined to the prostate, and cannot be felt
II confined to the prostate but can be felt
III the growth has spread to nearby tissues
IV the cancer has spread to lymph nodes, bones, lungs, and
other organs


-- SKIN CANCER FACTS


Most of the more than 1 million cases of nonmelanoma
skin cancer diagnosed yearly in the United States are con-
sidered to be sun-related. Melanoma, the most serious
type of skin cancer, will account for about 62,190 cases of
skin cancer in 2006 and most (about 7,910) of the 10,710
deaths due to skin cancer each year.

New Cases 62,190
Deaths Per Year 7,910
5-Year Localized Survival Rate* 9800
5-Year Overall Survival Rate* 92%o
The 5-year survival rates represent persons who are
living 5 years after diagnosis, whether disease-free, in re-
mission, or under treatment. They do not imply that 5-
year survivors have been permanently cured of cancer.
Localized cancer represents cancer that, at the time of di-
agnosis, had not spread to additional sites within the
body. Typically the earlier a cancer is detected and diag-
nosed, the more successful the treatment, thus enhancing
the survival rate.
For localized melanoma, the 5-year survival rate is
98%; survival rates for regional and distant stage diseases
are 64% and 16%, respectively. About 83% of melanomas
are diagnosed.at a localized stage

Frequently Asked. Questions
; What is the skin? The skin is the largest organ of the
~ ~-ft covets the internal organs and protects them from
injury, serves as a barrier between microbes, such as bac-
teria, and internal organs, and prevents the loss of too
much water and other fluids. The skin regulates body
temperature and helps rid the body of excess water and
salts. Certain cells in the skin communicate with the
brain and allow for temperature, touch, and pain sensa-
tions.
What is nonmelanoma (basal or squamous cell)
skin cancer? Most skin cancers are classified as non-
melanoma, usually occurring in either basal cells or squa-
mous cells. These cells are located at the base of the outer
layer of the skin or cover the internal and external sur-
faces of the body.
Most nonmelanoma skin cancers develop on sun-ex-
posed areas of the body, like the face, ear, neck, lips, and
the backs of the hands. Depending on the type, they can
be fast or slow growing, but they rarely spread to other
parts of the body.
What is melanoma skin cancer? Melanoma is a can-
cer that begins in the melanocytes the cells that produce
the skin coloring or pigment known as melanin. Melanin
helps protect the deeper layers of the skin from the harm-
ful effects of the sun.
Melanoma is almost always curable when it is detected
in its early stages. Although melanoma accounts for only
a small percentage of skin cancer, it is far more danger-
ous than other skin cancers, and it causes the majority of
skin cancer deaths.
How many people are affected by skin cancer?
Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers. It ac-
counts for nearly half of all cancers in the United States.
More than 1 million cases of nonmelanoma skin cancer
are found in this country each year. The American Cancer
Society estimates that about 62,190 new melanomas will
be diagnosed in the United States during 2006.
Who survives skin cancer? For basal cell or squa-
mous cell cancers, a cure is highly likely if detected and
treated early. Melanoma, even though it can spread to oth-
er body parts quickly, is also highly curable if detected
early and treated properly. The 5-year relative survival
rate for patients with melanoma is 92%. For localized
melanoma, the 5-year survival rate is 98%; survival rates
for regional and distant stage diseases are 64% and 16%
respectively About 83% of melanomas are diagnosed at a
localized stage.
How many people will die from skin cancer? The
American Cancer Society estimates there will be about
10,710 deaths from skin cancer in 2006 7,910 from
melanoma and 2,800 from other skin cancers.
What are the risk factors for skin cancer? Risk fac-
tors for nonmelanoma and melanoma skin cancers in-
clude:
unprotected and/or excessive exposure to ultraviolet
? (UV) radiation
fair complexion
occupational exposures to coal tar, pitch, creosote,
arsenic compounds, or radium
family history
multiple or atypical moles
severe sunburns as a child

What are the signs and symptoms of skin cancer?
Skin cancer can be found early, and both doctors and pa-
tients play important roles in finding skin cancer. If you


have any of the following symptoms, tell your doctor.
any change on the skin, especially in the size or color
of a mole or other darkly pigmented growth or spot, or a
new growth
scaliness, oozing, bleeding, or change in the appear-
ance of a bump or nodule
the spread of pigmentation beyond its border such as
dark coloring that spreads past the edge of a mole or
mark
a change in sensation, itchiness, tenderness, or pain

Can skin cancer be prevented? The best ways to low-
er the risk of nonmelanoma skin cancer are to avoid in-
tense sunlight for long periods of time and to practice sun
safety. You can continue to exercise and enjoy the out-
doors while practicing sun safety at the same time.
Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Seek shade: Look for shade, especially in the middle
of the day when the sun's rays are strongest. Practice the
shadow rule and teach it to children. If your shadow is
shorter than you, the sun's rays are at their strongest.
Slip on a shirt: Cover up with protective clothing to
guard as much skin as possible when you are out in the
sun. Choose comfortable clothes made of tightly woven
fabrics that you cannot see through when held up to a
light..
Slop on sunscreen: Use sunscreen with a sun protec-
tion factor (SPF) of 15 or higher. Apply a generous
amount (about a palmful) and reapply after swimming,
toweling dry, or perspiring. Use sunscreen even on hazy
or overcast days.
Slap on a hat: Cover your head with a wide-brimmed
hat, shading your face, ears, and neck. If you choose a
baseball cap, remember to protect your ears and neck


with sunscreen.
Wear sunglasses with 99% to 100% UV absorption to
provide optimal protection for the eyes and the surround-
ing skin.
Follow these practices to protect your skin even on
cloudy or overcast days. UV rays travel through clouds.

By William C. Gilliam,
U.S. Army, Sgt. First Class, Retired
Both of these flags were captured in
World War II during the Battle of Okinawa
from April 1 to June 21, 1945.
I, Staff Sgt. William Clyde Gilliam, was
the soldier who came across them.
At that time, I was platoon sergeant of
the 3rd Platoon, Company F, 2nd Batallion,
32nd Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Divi-
sion.
The Japanese troops had been pushed
south of the Naha-Shuri line, across Oki-
nawa.
I was with my platoon (40-plus troops),
searching for the holdout Japanese. We
found one to 20 in a coral cave.
One of the enemy was a Lt. Muri Moto,
who spoke English, having been educated
in the United States, who gave me a flag.
One of the captured prisoners gave me his
personal saber.
One day, after being hot and tired from
climbing up coral hills, I asked the Eng-
lish-speaking prisoner if he would kill me.


The prisoner said, "No. You my best
friend." Then I said, "Carry my rifle" and
he did.
One special item captured was a Japan-
ese flag, probably their unit flag with all of
their signatures.
I also came across an American flag.
Both the Japanese and American flags
were given to the platoon leader, 2nd Lt.
Victor D. Jensen, after he arrived on Oki-
nawa.
In March 2006, Vic Jensen found these
flags in his footlocker, wrinkled. He decid-
ed these flags should be preserved and put
on display. Vic took the flags to a museum
curator and asked what could be done. She
was impressed with the American flag,
since it had 48 stars, and she observed it
was hand-painted. She agreed both flags
should be preserved.
Because of her excitement, she suggest-
ed the history of how they were captured
should be written.
Vic asked me, Sgt. Gilliam, to write the
history from my first hand knowledge,
over 60 years after the fact.
