Lightning, Rain Cause Trouble For Madison County

By Jacob Bembry

Lightning and rain
wreaked havoc with Madison
County on Saturday, Septem-
ber 1.
The lightning knocked out
Madison County's main dis-
patch system that evening as a

fire started in the communica-
tions room at the jail, follow-
ing a loud boom that knocked
a cone off the top of the dis-
patch tower.
The fire department re-
sponded and contained the
Dispatchers had to switch

to handheld units and on Mon-
day, they were working on
only one radio unit at the jail.
At least one power line was
down in the county and Tri-
County Electric was kept busy
responding to calls.
A loud crack put the power
out to at least four homes on

SE Sycamore Street in Lee. A
Progress Energy crew, work-
ing in the lightning storm, had
the power back on by 4 p.m.
The lightning was not the
only adverse weather of the
day Heavy rains contributed
to an auto accident on Inter-
state 10.

Eating Contest" at their Bar B/S Ranch. Dinner included barbecue chicken, complete with potato salad and a
special bean casserole prepared by Suzzi. And to top the day off, the guys sat down at the picnic table for
the watermelon-eating contest. Ted Ensminger won the contest by taking advantage of the style he learned
while watching television. "It's all in the technique," said Ted, "plus the fact that the other guys just aren't
winners." The guest list included Ron and Laurie Gunlack, Bob and Pam Zacek, Darla Meyers and Kelly, and
Pricilla and Conrad Meyers.

A Grand Gentleman Died Recently...

Alonzo Frank Green, Jr. Passes Away; Family and Friends Salute Him

This column is a
sad one, but yet, a
happy one in
terms of memo-
My un-
cle, Alonzo
Green, Jr.,
many of
our readers
knew, died a
few weeks
ago. He grew
up in Madi-
son, the
youngest child
of Roberta
"Granny" Green
and Alonzo
Frank Green,
Sr. Ala

In my
column this week, I want to
share with our readers the val-
ue of living a good life.
My mother's baby brother,
Alonzo Frank Green, Jr., age 88,
of Gainesville, died Sunday,
July 29, 2007, in his home, after
an extended illness.
He was born in Jasper, on
September 30, 1918. Frank at-
tended school in his younger
years right here in Madison. He
and his mother and sisters lived
in the "Granny Green" home
just adjacent to Farmer's Fur-
niture on Range St. He later at-
tended the University of Flori-
da, but cut his college education
short to join the 17th Airborne
at the start of World War II.
He served overseas and
fought in the "Battle of the
Frank returned to the Uni-
versity of Florida after the war
to complete his education. He
loved people and politics. He
was the vice-president of his
freshman class at the Universi-
ty of Florida, and served on
many other boards at the U of F
Frank was President of
McKinney Green, Inc. Mort-
gage Banking Insurance and
Real Estate for over 60 years, be-
fore retiring in 2004. Frank was
involved in various organizaL
tions in the Gainesville area. He
was an Eagle Sc6it a'-'a yoUng
man, and enjoyed all aspects of
scouting. He served as a. past
president of the Board of
Gainesville Realtors and past
president of the North Florida
Council of Boy Scouts, and was
the holder of the Silver Beaver
Award, a coveted award that is
only given to men who go above
and beyond the call of duty to
the scouting program.
Frank was also the past
president of the Mortgage
Bankers Association of Flori-
da, a former Director of the
Alachua County Chamber of
Commerce, and a former mem-
ber of the Gainesville Airport
Aviation Advisory Board.
He loved flying, and was a
pilot. He was also an avid golfer
and hunter.
At his memorial service in.
Gainesville Saturday, August
25th, friends and family gath-
ered to remember Uncle Frank,
and all he had done for his
church, his family, his friends,
and his community
Family of Uncle Frank,
and many of his friends, gath-
ered to remember the good
times with this grand man Sat-
urday, August 25th, in
Gainesville, at The Family
Church, also known as The

Christ Church. It was
the first time in
many years that
all of our family
had gathered
at one time.
SWe took lots
of pictures,
and enjoyed
family, and
friends that
we hadn't
seen in many
years, includ-
ing our aunts
and uncles.
There were
four special speak-
ers during
the service.
nzo Frank Green, Jr. The

first speak-
er was my twin brother, Wiley
Alan Selman, the oldest of Un-
cle Frank's nieces and nephews,
who titled his talk, "Uncle
Frank Green Was My Hero."
Wiley stated, "I'm sure
everyone here remembers
Frank Green in many unique
and different ways some re-
member him as a father, a
brother, a friend, a business ac-
quaintance, or a church mem-
ber. He was a special person. To
me, he was one of my heroes."
Wiley continued, "He
taught me many of 'Life's Little
Wiley then said, "What was
very special was that I had the
opportunity to share all this
and more with him about four
or five years ago, and I let him
know how much I appreciated
the influence he had had on my
One special moment Wiley
said was: 'As a young boy Uncle
Frank would take the time to al-
low me to go along with him on
bird hunting trips, even before I
was old enough to fire a shot.
As most of you know, he was an
avid hunter. I have many mem-
ories of Granny Green, (my
grandmother, and his mother),
making a fine meal with the
birds that were killed. '
Wiley continued "'As I -grew
older, I.remembe?'A A at dge~~e r
Uncle Frank taking me to see
my first Gator football game.
This was the beginning influ--
ence of my life-long passion for
the 'Orange-and-Blue."'
He added, "I recall on a visit
when I was 16 years old, he gave,
me the keys to his Thunderbird
so we could go across town to
'Teen Town.' That was in 1955 -
Wow, where has time gone?"
Wiley then said, "In my se-
nior year at the University of
Florida, Uncle Frank gave me a
job in his office. I learned from
him experience is the 'Disci-
pline of Business.' He taught
me that 'Family is Family' and
'Business is Business.'" Wiley
added, "I carried many of the
lessons he taught me through-
out my life. One incident that
comes to mind is the time he
asked me to drive to Jack-
sonville on business for him,
and I had car trouble. I remem-
ber calling him and telling him
that I had to have the car fixed,
and the car mechanics needed
to be paid. Uncle Frank told me
to just pay them, and he would
reimburse me when I got back.
I told Uncle Frank that the bill
was over $50 dollars, and that I
didn't have that much money on
me (Now, this was before credit

cards and I had no
checks to write then).
Uncle Frank told me to nev-
er, never, never go off anywhere
again if I didn't have a $50 or
$100 bill "tucked away" in my
wallet. At that time, I had only
seen a few $100 bills (and they
belonged to someone else), BUT,
today from the lesson I learned,
I still have an emergency bill
tucked away in my wallet. Un-
cle Frank taught me this valu-
able lesson that I have never for-
Wiley smiled and said, "I'll
bet there are many.of you here
today that he taught that very
lesson to, also." Just about
everyone in the room smiled,
and raised their hands.
Wiley continued by saying,
"Through the years, I watched
Uncle Frank's great love for all
of his sisters (Frank was the
baby, and only boy, who had five
sisters). I watched Frank
through the years as some of
their health declined..He would
make regular visits with each
of them, to make sure all their
needs were met. I know my
Mom, Lucile Green Selman,
would look forward to Uncle
Frank driving the two-hour trip
to Madison, even after his
health was failing, also, and
most of the time, he would
bring his sister, Rosa V (Zip-
perer), with him. He was a spe-
cial brother to all of his sisters.
"So, throughout my life, Un-
cle Frank was a great influ-
ence," Wiley concluded. "He
gave me direction in my forma-
tive years, and he was always
there when I needed him."
Wiley ended by saying, "In
Today's World, We Need More
Heroes...Uncle Frank Green
was My Hero."
The second speaker at the
service was Bob Ervin of Talla-
hassee, a long-time friend of
Uncle Frank's. Bob and Frank
met in 1932 in west Florida at a
Summer Assembly in Lynn
Haven, and became instant
friends that lasted a lifetime.
Bob said the two were like
brothers, and Bob visited in
Frank's home, and Frank visit-
ed in his as teenagers. The two
later served in the Florida Leg-
islature as pages together, and
were later roommates at the
University of Florida.
Bob told that the two young
men even had business ven-
tures together while at the Uni-
versity of Florida, and during
the Depression. They did laun-
dry and dry cleaning for
friends, and waited tables to-
gether to make money Bob told
how Frank returned to
Gainesville after serving in the
war, and established a real es-
tate and insurance business
that grew to become the leading
mortgage investment business
in Gainesville.
Bob told how Frank was a
super businessman, and had
served on local, state and na-
tional boards for mortgage,

banking. real e-tate and inIstLu
aince ouganizatioins H:- also:
served on local boards in
Gainesville for the Chamber,
airport authority, churches, and
many other local groups. He
also brought out how Frank
was a close advisor for former
Florida Governor Farris
Ervin told of the many hunt-
ing trips the two had shared
through the years, and how
close they had remained for
over 75 years, and how much he
was going to miss Frank.
The third speaker of the day
was Phil Weidler, who was a
partner with Frank in his Mort-

gage/Insurance business. Phil
told of the many good times he
and Frank had as friends and
business partners, and of the
many things he, too, learned
from Frank.
The final speaker of the day
was the pastor of The Family
Church, who told how much
Frank had meant to their
church. He told how Frank had
done many things for the
church that no one knew about,
and that he would always be re-
membered because of his gen-
The family and friends of
Frank's at the funeral enjoyed
sitting together and telling of
various memories of their fa-
ther, uncle, brother, and friend.
It was especially good to see my
aunt Rosa V Zipperer, the only
living sibling left in the "Green"
family It was also good to see
my Aunt Margie Green, Frank's
former wife, with whom our
family has shared many good
times. Their home was "the
place" to gather for U of F

games for the "Pre-game Party,"
and the "After the Game" party
Their home was located just
two blocks from (the Gator) Ben
Hill Griffin Stadium, and park-
ing in their yard was not only
convenient, but fun as well.
Frank would have loved to
have been sitting there with us
all, laughing and joking, as he
always did.
I know Uncle Frank is look-
ing down from Heaven today,
reading my column, as he often
told me he did, and enjoying
still being a major influence
and part of a loving family
We will all miss Uncle
Frank, but he will never be for-
gotten. He will always be re-
membered for his lovingkind-
ness, and his Christian morals
and ideals. I know he meant a
lot to me, and to my family My
life has been blessed for having
an uncle like our "Uncle
Frank." Every family needs
such a man in their lives.
"Nuff said.... Bye for now...
See 'ya."

The cousins gathered together for a group picture at Uncle Frank's funeral. We had not seen each
other, all together, in many years. What is sad is that the only time we get together anymore is at funer-
als. The last time I saw most of them was at my own mother's funeral a few years ago.

Watch Where You Eat
Dear Editor:
I am writing as a concerned citizen of Madison County
When I see a certain fast f9od establishment, I think
Did you know that the general manager of this establishment
claims that because of their set-up, they are not required to wear
gloves while preparing your food? I went through the drive-
through on August 10, ordered some food I and as I was sitting at
the window, I watched the assistant do various things, including
wiping his hands on his nasty clothes, then open the wrapper to
my sandwich and finger through it with his dirty fingers. Not
once did he wash his hands, so when the girl came to the win-
dow, I sent it back, told them to make another one, but when I
told them that, he moved where I couldn't see him so I asked for
my money back.
I called the general manager's number and she said, "With
our setup, we are not required to wear gloves."
I proceeded to tell her, that with all the various diseases
around (HIV AIDS, hepatitis) and them preparing food with no
gloves, that is just nasty She told me they are required by law to
tell if they carry a disease.
But, that's not true. There is a privacy act, isn't there!
So my advice to everyone is to watch where you eat!

Sheriff Thanks All The
Men And Women Of Law Enforcement

Dear Editor:
Recently the salaries of the Madison Coun-
ty Sheriffs Office were posted in the newspa-
per. I wanted to ask you to publish this infor-
mation to show what we (the public) get for
our law enforcement tax dollars.
In the last few weeks we have seen several
tragedies in our law enforcement community
In Broward County, one deputy in critical con-
dition, one murdered (Deputy Christopher
Reyka) and in Hillsborough County, Sgt. Ron
Harrison was murdered. We have heartbreak-
ing reminders of the risks our law enforce-
ment officers take every day. In Madison Coun-
ty, we had two deputies injured in the last
week making arrests.
The statistics below are from the The Na-
tional Law Enforcement Officers Memorial
Fund site. Reading them made me pause and
pay my respects to not only those who have
been killed or injured in the line of duty but
to each of our officers who continue day after
day putting selves in harms way to protect
the rest of us.
There are more than 870,000 sworn law

enforcement officers now serving in the United
States, which is the highest figure ever.
Crime fighting has taken its toll. Since the
first recorded police death in 1792, there have
been more than 17,900 law enforcement officers
killed in the line of duty. Currently, there are
17,912 names engraved on the walls of the Na-
tional Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
A total of 1,649 law enforcement officers
died in the line of duty during the past 10
years, an average of one death every 53 hours
or 165 per year. There were 145 law enforcement
officers killed in 2006. On average, more than
56,000 lawenforcement officers are assaulted
each year, resulting in over 16,000 injuries.
The deadliest day in law enforcement his-
tory was September 11, 2001, when 72 officers
were killed while responding to the terrorist at-
tacks on America.
So, the purpose of this letter is to say thank
you to all of the honorable men and women of
law enforcement, who serve and protect us. I ap-
preciate the sacrifices you make everyday.
Sheriff Peter C. Bucher

As Americans,
we tend to over-
look the contribu- National
tion of the Soviet
Union to World Security
War II, but a clos-
er examination of Joe Boyles
history reveals
they played a Guest Columnisi
huge role in de- .....
eating Nazi Ger-
many. The pivotal
battle on the East-
ern Front was for control of the city of
Stalingrad. When the Russians prevailed
in this six-month battle, the tide of the
war turned against Hitler and the Nazis.
Historian William Craig's 1973 epic
"Enemy at the Gates: The Battle for Stalin-
grad" examines the most costly battle in
human history From August 1942 to Feb-
ruary 1943, two great armies wrestled for
control of an industrial city of about half
a million people. In the process, two mil-
lion lost their lives Germans, Russians,
Italians and Romanians.
The year before, Hitler had launched
Operation Barbarossa, the effort to drive
the Soviets out of Europe and destroy the
Red Army It was a huge gamble, ignoring
the precedence set by previous conquerors
like Charles XII and Napoleon who had in-
vaded Russia, only to see their armies de-
stroyed. Like most dictators with unman-
ageable egos, Adolph Hitler believed he
could defy historical precedence. He was
Initially, Barbarossa was quite success-
ful, trapping and destroying huge ele-
ments of Stalin's army, but long logistics
lines and the Russian winter stopped the
Nazi juggernaut short of the gates of
Moscow in December 1941.
Hitler launched his 1942 campaign
away from Moscow toward the steppes of
the Caucasus Mountain range. His.strate-
gic goal was to wrestle away oilfields
around Grozny to provide petroleum for
his conquering armies. Two great army
groups comprised of almost two million
soldiers rushed onto the steppes destroy-
ing Soviet armies in their wake, but soon
the onslaught bogged down as logistic
supply lines back to Germany became
longer and more strained.
The northern army group is led by the
mighty Sixth Army under command of
General Friedrich von Paulus. His objec-
tive is Stalingrad on or near the West
Bank of the great Volga River. The Rus-
sians throw up a makeshift defense and by
mid-August, the battle degenerates into
urban warfare negating the German ad-
vantage of Blitzkrieg or mobile warfare.
Stalingrad becomes a salient in the
front. Recognizing this weakness, the Rus-
sians begin to build up forces on either

a."Der Kessel" or
Hitler refuses
to allow Paulus to break out, insisting the
Luftwaffe can resupply 300,000 troops by
airlift. They never come close. In only
two months time, what remains of the
Sixth Army is starving to death.
Manstein's Army Group Don tries to
link up with Paulus from the south but
falls 40 miles short. By late January 1943,
the Sixth Army is toast and forced to sur-
render. About 100,000 prisoners march off
to the Soviet Gulags; fewer than 5,000 will
live to return to Germany at war's end.
Two great battles at approximately the
same time Stalingrad in Russia and El
Alamein in North Africa sealed the fate
of Hitler's Third Reich. What went
wrong? Like so many times, it was a com-
bination of factors. First, Hitler believed
he could open a second front and quickly
defeat the Soviets. Long supply lines and
the murderous cold of the Russian winter
conspired against the Nazis. The Ger-
,mans grossly underestimated the
strength of the Red Army, particularly
when they were defending their home-
land. And of course, Hitler defied the ad-
vice of his generals and set his own ru-
inous course.
Are there important lessons in the ex-
ample of Stalingrad? Several come to
mind.. Two front wars are a bad idea.
Avoid a land war in Asia where huge ex-
panses can swallow an army Don't un-
derestimate your enemy. Never outrun
your lines of supply Urban warfare
negates the advantage of mobility Never
lose sight of nationalism as an important
factor in war. Politicians are very poor at
military strategy and even poorer tacti-
cians. Most of these lessons have some
relevance to our current situation in Iraq.
The flower of German youth was wast-
ed at Stalingrad and on the eastern front.
It was no picnic for the Russians who lost
22,000,000 in what they termed "The Great
Patriotic War." Put another way, for
every one American life lost in World War
II, the Russians lost 50! It is almost
unimaginable to think of the difficulty we
would have faced at Normandy and in
France two years later if Hitler had a cou-
ple more million Wehrmacht soldiers to
throw at us.

Two Men Indicted In Florida Former Chairman Of The Board

On Explosives
WASHINGTON Two University of
South Florida (USF) students have been
indicted by a federal grand jury in Tam-
pa, for transporting explosives materi-
als without permits, the Department of
Justice announced today.
The two-count indictment unsealed
today charges Ahmed Abdellatif Sherif
Mohamed and Youssef Samir Megahed,
both Egyptian nationals, with trans-
porting explosives in interstate com-
merce without permits. The indictment
alleges that the two men, "not being li-
censees" under federal law, "did know-
ingly transport and cause to be trans-
ported in interstate commerce explosive
materials" on or about Aug. 4, 2007 in
the Middle District of Florida and else-
Mohamed was also charged with dis-
tributing information about building
and using an explosive device. The in-
dictment alleges that Mohamed taught
and demonstrated the making and use
of an explosive and destructive device,
with the intent that such 'information
be used for, and in the furtherance of,
an activity that constitutes a federal
crime of violence.
Mohamed, a civil engineering gradu-
ate student and teaching assistant at
USF, and Megahed, an engineering stu-
dent, were stopped for speeding and
subsequently arrested on Aug. 4, 2007 in
Goose Creek, S.C. by a South Carolina
Berkeley County Sheriff's deputy Both
Mohamed and Megahed were charged
with possession of an explosive device,
in violation of South Carolina law. Bond

was set for Mohamed in the amount of
$500,000 and for Megahead in the
amount of $300,000. Both men are cur-
rently being held in Berkeley County
The charges in the indictment are
merely allegations, and the defendants
are presumed innocent unless and until
proven guilty. The charge of distribut-
ing information about explosive devices
carries a maximum penalty of 20 years
in prison, and the charge of transport-
ing explosive materials carries a maxi-
mum penalty of 10 years in prison.
Reginald I. Lloyd, U.S. Attorney for
the District of South Carolina, ex-
pressed his appreciation for the efforts
of the Berkeley County Sheriff's De-
partment and the Ninth Circuit Solici-
tor's Office in South Carolina. "I am
very grateful for the hard work and pro-
fessionalism of our local law enforce-
ment partners in this important investi-
gation. The arresting deputy's vigilance
and the immediate response of our local
investigators and prosecutors are high-
ly commendable."
This case is being prosecuted hy the
U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle
District of Florida, with the assistance
of the National Security Division at the
Department of Justice in Washington,
D.C. The case was investigated by the
Federal Bureau of Investigation and the
Joint Terrorism Task Forces in both
Tampa and South Carolina, with the as-
sistance of the United States Attorney's
Office for the District of South Caroli-

Judge Adalberto Jordan today sentenced de-
fendant Eduardo Orlansky, the former
chairman of the board of E.S. Bankest. to 20
years imprisonment for his crimes related
to bank fraud and money-laundering at E.S.
Bankest in Miami.
The case involved a loss of $164-million to
entities of the Espirito Santo Group, which
includes Espirito Santo Bank in Miami, and
Judge Jordan's sentence included an order
that Eduardo Orlansky make restitution of
$164,597,310.11. During the sentencing hear-
ing, Judge Jordan described the magnitude
of the loss as -staggering."
Eduardo Orlansky and three co-defen-
dants were convicted following a six-month
jury trial in Miami last year. Eduardo Or-
lansky was convicted of 44 felony counts, in-
cluding bank fraud, wire fraud. money-laun-
dering, and conspiracy Evidence at trial
showed that E.S. Bankest. a factoring com-
pany in the business of funding clients se-
cured by clients' accotmts receivable, bor-
rowed multimillions of dollars of money
from Espirito Santo Bank clients based on
fraud, including fabricated accounts receiv-
able: Espirito Santo Group eventually took
the debt positions of the clients, and ab-
sorbed the loss. The indictment charged a
conspiracy from approximately June, 1994.

until August., 2003, when an examiner was
appointed by the federal court to look into
the affairs of the company, which collapsed.
Eduardo Orlansky was the last of the
four tried defendants to be sentenced Previ-
ously, Eduardo Orlansky's brother: E.S.
Bankest President Hector Orlansky, also
was sentenced to 20 years in prison. R. Peter
Stanham, former corporate Secretary and
Treasurer of E.S. Bankest, was sentenced to
108 months in prison. Ariadna Puerto. for-
mer Vice-President of E.S. Bankest. was
sentenced to 84 months in prison. Those de-
fendants also were ordered to make restitu-
tion. Nine people were criminally charged
in connection with the fraud. Five pled
guilty and were previously sentenced.
United States Attorney Acosta stated,
"This lengthy sentence reflects the serious-
ness and magnitude of this defendant'
fraud. Business dealings must be conducted
honestly and ethically and those who break
the law for their personal or business ad-
vantage will face serious consequences."
The case was prosecuted by Assistant
United States Attorneys Caroline Heck
Miller and Ryan Stumphauzer, and by for-
mer Assistant United States Attorney
Matthew Menchel. The case was investigat-
ed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation,
whose diligence and thoroughness in inves-
tigating the complex case and analyzing and
managing the voluminous evidence was
praised by United States Attorney R.
Alexander Acosta

Patients And Clinic Operator
Charged With Conspiracy To
Defraud Medicare After
Undercover Investigation
WASHINGTON Nine Miami residents have been
charged with conspiracy to commit health care fraud as the
result of an undercover operation designed to detect and
stop Medicare beneficiaries from taking cash kickbacks for
the purpose of allowing providers to bill Medicare for un-
necessary services, the Department of Justice announced
The nine individuals were charged in a criminal com-
plaint filed today in U.S. District Court in Miami. Jorge Ale-
jandro Gonzalez, Carmelina M. Barzaga-Valladares, Rodney
Kevin Robinson, Tony Leon Carter, Orlando Jose Molieri,
Lorenzo Holton, Pedro Gonzalez, and Ivan Hernandez, all of
Miami, were each charged with conspiracy to defraud
Medicare by receiving cash kickbacks in exchange for al-
lowing their Medicare cards to be billed for unnecessary
services. In addition, Esperanza Ramudo, also of Miami,
was charged with conspiring to receive kickbacks in ex-
change for providing fraudulent prescriptions. The charges
carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
The charges arise from the conclusion of an investiga-
tion in which the Federal Bureau of Investigation utilized
vans wired with video recording equipment to allow patient
recruiters to pick up their paid patients and transport them
to clinics where the recruiters had prearranged for the pa-
tients to receive false prescriptions. The patients were ar-
rested after allegedly accepting kickbacks and signing false
medical documents, and were driven directly to the FBI of-
fice in the very van that recorded their agreements to de-
fraud Medicare.
The case is being prosecuted by Kirk Ogrosky, head of
the Medicare Fraud Strike Force and Deputy Chief of the
Fraud Section at the Department of Justice in Washington,
D.C., and Assistant U.S. Attorney Ryan Stumphauzer from
the Southern District of Florida in Miami with the inves-
tigative assistance of the FBI and the Office of Inspector
General at the Department of Health and Human Services.
The prosecution resulted from the establishment of the
Medicare Fraud Strike Force, a multi-agency team of feder-
al, state and local investigators in south Florida designed
specifically to combat Medicare fraud in South Florida.
Criminal charges are merely allegations and defendants
are innocent unless and until proven guilty

goes, "We get invited to the Oscars You turn that down. We get
invited to the Gramrnmys. You turn that down. But you never turn
down a hunting or fishing trip.' I always explain, 'Well, if I have
my choice of putting on a tuxedo and going out to L.A. and sit-

It's Foxworthy's rare combination of box-office starpower

Sept. 22.
"I'm flattered to be asked to serve as 2007 honorary chair-

sharing hunting and fishing trips with my family had a pro-
found impact on my life. and undoubtedly shaped and molded
the person I am today." he said.

Kiwanians Receive Visits

By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Kiwanis Club was blessed with several special guests in-
cluding Robert Moore, a high school student, and fellow Ki-
wanians from Tallahassee. The meeting on August 9 began
with a delicious meal and various announcements, as well
as Jim Holben's typical jdkes.
Robert Moore, a student at Lawton Chiles High School
and Lieutenant Governor for the Division Three Key Club
spoke briefly about how to maintain the relationship be-
tween "parent" Kiwanis Clubs and "daughter" clubs like
Key Club. Moore plans on arranging activities for his Key
Club to interact with the Kiwanis Club.
Special guests from Tallahassee were officers of the Kil-
learn Kiwanis Club. Al Eppinger is the new Lieutenant

-om Special Gue:
Governor, Jim Barney is the Secretary Bob Bullrun is in
the Action Club, and John Robinson goes around to all the
inner clubs.
Jerome Wyche, member, had the program at the meeting.
Wyche chose to present an overview of the Madison County
Solid Waste and Recycling Department for which he is coor-
Wyche spoke about Madison County's collection centers,
which he says look more like parks than recycling sites.
"We spend an inordinate amount of money to make sure
the sites look good." Looking good includes manicuring the
lawns and keeping everything clean.
Each "pristine" site is managed by a team of dedicated
employees who make sure the area is kept nice and clean.
The part-timers, who are mostly retirees, work to supple-

ment their income.
Wyche couldn't pass up the chance to brag on the latest
addition to the Solid Waste and Recycling Department, an
automatic tie-baling machine that helps to speed up pro-
cessing of corrugate. The machine truly is a wonderful ad-
dition worth the praise.
In addition to his vocal presentation, Wyche brought
along a few visual aids, one a map that shows the locations
of collection sites within the county, and another that told
how long it takes certain things to decompose in a landfill.
At the end of the meeting, Holben announced that Lu-
cille's team, The Winners, was still leading in the member-
ship drive. Pat Cantey's Conquerors ought to step up their
game or they'll be eating hot dogs while Lucille's team eats

55 Plus Club Begins Fifth Year

The 55 Plus Club will resume meetings after the annual two-
month summer vaatbfl:. ,
.The organizAtlii,, aLnouatreach ministry of the United
Methodist Cooperative Ministries, will meet on September 12.
The luncheon, followed by a program geared to senior needs
and interests, was started in September 2003 by Willis Moore, with
help from Margaret Throgmorton and ideas and encouragement
from Rev. Lee Fer Don, then-pastor of First United Methodist
Church in Madison.
Meetings are held at the United Methodist Cooperative Com-
munity Center, which is located at the corner of Highway 145 and
Dill Street. This is about five miles North of Madison.
The host church for the first luncheon meeting will be Cherry
Lake United Methodist Church.
Seven United Methodist Churches take turns furnishing and
preparing the food for the luncheon.
The Pine Tree Quilters also host one luncheon a year, as does
the Board of the United Methodist Cooperative Ministries. The
meetings are always on the second Wednesday of the month.
The UMCM Board will host the September 12 meeting.
The concept of soup and sandwiches or salad and sandwich-

es, depending on the weather, was also the idea of Willis Moore;
therefore the menu for the first meeting of this new season will be
sandwiches, salads, desserts and iced tea.
Programs for the meetings have been excellent, although
every program will not be of interest to everyone every time. The
first 55.Plus Club meeting was September 10, 2003, and Sheriff
Pete Bucher presented the program. Since then we have had a
wide range of programs, most informative, a few for fun, and over-
all, well received. The program chairpersons through the years
have been Willis Moore, Stuart Fenneman and Jimmy Hardee.
The program speaker for the September 12 luncheon will be
Leigh Barfield, Madison County Property Appraiser. In light of
the upcoming legislation on property taxes, this should be a most
important program, one that should not be missed.
The 55 Plus Club is for anyone in the community 55 years old
and older, church affiliation is not a factor. There are no fees of
any kind and reservations are not needed.
For more information about the September 12 meeting of the
55 Plus Club, or for information about any outreach ministry of
the United Methodist Cooperative Ministries, contact the Coordi-
nator, Linda Gaston at 850-929-4938.

"Maxed Out" on IRA and 401(k)?
Consider Insurance, Annuities

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Many people rely on their IRAs and 401(k) plans to help
them pay for their retirement years and for good reason,
because IRAs and 401(k)s are excellent retirement-savings
vehicles. But once you reach the point where you are con-
tributing the maximum amount to your IRA and 401(k) each
year, what else can you do to build resources for retirement?
You might want to consider annuities and cash value insur-
Fixed and Variable Annuities
When you buy a fixed annuity, the insurance company
puts your funds.into fixed income investments, such as bonds.
Your principal is guaranteed, and the insurance company pays
you an interest rate that is also guaranteed fog a certain period
of time. At the end of the guarantee period, the insurer adjusts
the guaranteed interest rate upward or downward. These guar-
antees are backed by the claims paying ability of the issuing
insurance companies.
If you'd like the potential to earn more than you can
receive from a fixed annuity, you might want to consider a
variable annuity. When you purchase a variable annuity, you
place your money in various accounts that can be made up of
stocks, bonds and other securities. You choose how to allocate
your investment dollars, based on your risk tolerance and time
horizon. (Keep in mind, though, that this investment is called
"variable" for a reason; your account balance will fluctuate
along with the financial markets, and there's no guarantee you
will get back all your principal. Furthermore, fees are associat-
ed with each variable annuity benefit.
With either a fixed or variable annuity, ypu won't pay
taxes on your earnings until you begin taking withdrawals. Be
aware though, that if you are younger than 59-1/2 when you
start taking withdrawals, you will have to pay a 10 percent tax
penalty in addition to ordinary income tax on the amount with-
Apart from tax deferral, annuities offer at least one other
key benefit: flexibility in taking your payments. You can
accept distributions as a lump sum, spread them out over a cer-
tain number of years or create an income stream for the rest of
your life or even your life and that of your spouse.
Cash Value Insurance
When you buy permanent insurance, also known as "cash
value" insurance, part of your premium pays for the death ben-
efit (the amount that goes to your beneficiary), but some of the
payment goes to help build cash value and this money grows
on a tax-deferred basis, similar to annuities, your traditional
IRA and your 401 (k).
You can choose from a variety of cash-value insurance
policies. In building cash value, some of these policies rely on
variable investments, such as stocks. Consequently, your cash
value will fluctuate over time, and, as is the case with variable
annuities, you could lose some or all of your principal.
However, you can also choose varieties of cash-value insur-
ance, such as whole life or universal life, that typically pay
guaranteed rates of return. The guarantees of these products
are also backed only by the claims paying ability of the issuing
insurance company.
To access your cash value, you can cancel or surrender
your policy (although, if you surrender it within a few years of
purchasing it, you may have to pay surrender charges) or you
can borrow from your policy and either let the remaining cash
value pay the interest or pay it back yourself.
Ultimately, you can provide a significant boost to your
retirement savings by investing in annuities and cash value
insurance. So, give them some consideration once you've hit
the "ceiling" on your 401(k) and IRA.

Jerry Gray & Family Know Their Logging

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
"So I commend the en-
joyment of life, because
nothing is better for a man
under the sun than to eat
and drink and be glad.
Then joy will accompany
him in his work all the
days of the life God has giv-
en him under the sun." (Ec-
clesiastes 8:15, the verse on
a sign in Gray Logginig,
along with the company's
slogan "A Cut Above.")
Jerry Gray knows log-
ging. He's done it all of his
life. As the manager of
Gray Logging, LLC, he
proudly carries on the tra-
dition started in 1971 by
his father, W.C.
"When I started the
business, I had 39 cents in
my pocket," W.C. said.
The elder Gray said
that Billy Langdale, a
Lowndes County, Ga. busi-
nessman, had loaned him
$10,000 to go into business
for himself. With that mon-
,ey, Gray bought logging
equipment and began do-
ing the work all by himself.
W.C.'s brother-in-law,
Buck Thrift, whom he had
logged with in South Geor-
gia and in New Mexico in
1957, began working for
W.C., as did his sons, Jerry
and Jackie, when they be-
came older.
Jackie died in Septem-
ber 2001 after a three-year
battle with cancer. In a
2003 interview with South-
ern Logging Times, Jerry
said, "My brother and I
had worked together all of
our lives, and when I lost
him, it was like half of
Jerry's Uncle Buck had
retired two months before
Jackie died and in Novem-

ber 2001, WC. retired. A
company, which had been
comprised of mostly fami-
ly members, was down to
only one family member.
"It was tough and still
is tough, sometimes," Jer-
ry said. "We had worked
together so long, we just
knew what the other was
going to do. It was hard to
adjust, but the Lord
brought me through it and
I've got two good crews
with great employees."
A man of strong Chris-
tian faith and principles,
Gray and his wife, Ginger,
who works as the book-
keeper for the business,
are members of Madison
Church of God where they
both teach the Teen Sun-
day School class. Their
daughter, JerriAnn, is the
youth pastor at the church.
Jerry, who had begun
working for his father's
business, is not only the
manager of Gray Logging,
LLC; he is also a partner
with Larry Joe Hammock,
in the business known as
GH Timber, a local timber
dealer. Together, both
crews combined average
120 loads a week. They
have run up to 154 loads a
week during their peak
Gray Logging and GH
Timber harvest timber and
supply wood to PCA, Buck-
eye Cellulose and haul
chipping saw to Gilman
Building Products in Per-
ry, Georgia Pacific in Cross
City, and Langdale in Val-
dosta, Ga.
Jerry is happy about
his business with Ham-
mock. Together, they bring
a number of years of busi-
ness and logging savvy to
the table.

Crew number one for Gray Logging contracts for Greenville Timber Corporation. Standing, from left to right: Edward Hutchinson, Andrew Hodge,
Dean Tuten, Jeffrey Grace, Dennis Odom. Kneeling: Jerry Gray. Not pictured: Kenny Richardson, Norman McCall and Richard Anderson.

Ginger enjoys her
work in the office. She re-
tired from Madison Acade-
my, after teaching first
grade for 16 years. Their
two daughters, both gradu-
ates of Lee University in
Cleveland, TN, have fol-
lowed their mother into

the teaching field. Their
oldest, JerriAnn teaches at
Madison Academy and
their youngest, Megan
Light, teaches at New Hope
Middle School in Dalton,
Megan and her hus-
band, Josh, live in Cleve-

land, Tn.
Jerry looks forward to
Gray Logging and GH Tim-
ber harvesting and hauling
timber for many more
years.' He would like to
thank the people of Madi-
son County for allowing
GH Timber and Gray Log-

going, LLC to purchase and
harvest their timber. Also,
he would like to thank his
mother and father for the
hard work and sacrifices
that were made starting
this business.

Bargain Shopping For Your Wedding Gown

You've been dreaming of
your wedding day for your
whole life. You imagine walk-
ing down the aisle in the per-
fect white gown with flowing
veil, sophisticated tiara or
hairpiece, and a romantic
bouquet of flowers. No holds
barred, you visualize the
perfect everything -- with
money no object.
Now your dream becomes
reality. You've gotten en-
gaged and are planning the
perfect wedding, except the
reality is that funds are not
endless and you have a bud-
get to work within. That bud-
get must cover not only your
bridal attire, but also fees for
rental of your ceremony and
reception site(s), decora-
tions, catering/food, bar,
flowers, music, photography,
video, minister's fee, mar-
riage license, invitations,
wedding rings, transporta-
tion, honeymoon, atten-
dants' gifts, guest wedding
favors, and a myriad of other
miscellaneous costs.
Like most of us, perhaps

your budget does not allow
you the luxury of spending
$10,000 to $20,000 for a de-
signer wedding gown. Or
even if it does, perhaps you'd
prefer to spend less on a
gown and accessories you'll
wear only one day and use a
larger portion of your bud-
get for more elaborate pho-
tography, an expanded wed-
ding album, substantial
keepsake favors for guests,
custom-designed wedding
rings, or an extended, exotic
Regardless of budget or fi-
nancial means, everyone en-
joys the feeling of accom-
plishment when locating and
acquiring a bargain. With a
little research and creativity,
anyone can reap the benefits
of significant savings. Listed
below are a number of ways
to easily locate the perfect
bridal attire and accessories
for discounted prices.
If you are just starting out
and do not know what styles
you prefer, what fabric colors
and gown silhouettes look
most flattering on you, or
what size you wear, you may
want to begin by visiting a
few full-service bridal shops.
Look through the racks and
make note of the styles, fea-
tures, and colors you like

best. Try on different gowns
to see what is most flattering
overall and what features
you want to up-play or down-
play Sometimes you'll find
that a style you liked in a
magazine photo is really not
flattering for your height,
figure, or skin and hair col-
Bridal gowns are sized
very different from normal,
street clothing so don't be de-
pressed if you find you need
a bridal gown that is 2 sizes
larger than your normal
dress size. Keep in mind
while most gowns average 2
sizes larger than your nor-
mal dress size, each designer
has their own sizing charts.
Designers' size charts vary
greatly so you may find that
you need a gown sized any-
where between your normal
dress size up to 3 or 4 sizes
larger. With that variance in
mind, begin compiling a list
of what sizes fit you best for
each gown designer and
manufacturer and make note
of any special dress- styles

you prefer. If you're at a
bridal salon that removes the
manufacturer labels and tags
or re-labels the style number
tags with their own internal
reference number (many sa-
lons do this to avoid "com-
petitive shopping" and price
comparisons), sketch a pic-
ture of the gown and ask for
the name of the manufactur-
er. Salons won't let you take
photos of the gowns and gen-
erally won't tell you the actu-
al style number of the
gowns, however, they should
at least tell you the name of
the designer or manufactur-
er of the gown.,
Once you have an idea of
the styles you like and the
size you need, begin search-
ing for your gown and acces-
sories. It's best to purchase
your dress before shopping
for accessories as certain
characteristics of the dress
will help determine the best
style, color, and length of
veil, and the most flattering
style of tiara or headpiece.
When looking for a gown,
keep in mind that it's best to
find a dress that either fits
perfectly or that is a bit large
in some areas. Due to the del-
icate fabrics, lace, and elabo-
rate beading on many gowns,
it is much easier for a seam-

stress or tailor to "take in" a
too-large gown than it is to
"let out" or enlarge a dress
that is too tight. Many gown
designers create gowns with
a 1 inch or less seam al-
lowance which makes ex-
panding a gown difficult, if
not impossible. The more dif-
ficult a gown is to alter, the
more expensive the alter-
ation. Remember that your
bridal gown budget needs to
incorporate funds for both
the dress purchase and alter-
ation costs.
Bridal bargains can be
found in a number of places.
Besides a traditional sales
promotion, most full-service
bridal salons have a small
section of their stores dedi-
cated to sample gowns
(gowns that have been tried
on in the store as samples),
discontinued gowns (gowns
no longer manufactured),
and gowns that have been
special ordered and can-
celled or abandoned (can-
celled weddings, abandoned
deposits, etc). Normally
these types of gowns cannot
be ordered and must be taken
"as is" in the size and condi-
tion displayed. To compen-
sate for any dry cleaning,
necessary repairs, and to
clear the display racks of
discontinued styles, salons
offer the gowns at a discount-
ed price. Generally, alter-
ation costs are separate and
not included in the purchase
price. ., : ; ,
Consignment- bridal, boau-
tiques'have become extreme-
ly popular over the past few
years and are another option
for locating bridal attire and
accessories at budget prices.
Generally consignment bou-
tiques accept only new or
previously worn gowns of
current style in good condi-
tion, and previously-worn
items must be dry-cleaned
before they are accepted.
Items in the store are con-
signed (on loan) to the store
for a set amount of time and
a consignment or listing fee
is paid to the store by the in-
dividual seller. If the items
sell, the consignment shop
gets a percentage of the sell-
ing price. If the items do not
sell within a set period of
time (generally 60 to 120
days), the seller picks up the
bridal items. Consignment
shops can be a good, one-stop
shopping solution for brides
on a budget as they generally
carry a large variety of
sizes, styles, colors, and
matching accessories. Many
of the larger bridal consign-
ment boutiques have their
own seamstresses so alter-
ations and pressing can be
done at the shop just like
full-service bridal salons.
Another excellent way to
bargain shop for bridal
gowns and accessories is on-
line through the internet.
The internet is a very power-
ful tool and can connect you
with thousands of sellers.
There are a number of web-
sites dedicated to selling
bridal attire and wedding
items. Sites such as,, and offer thou-
sands of items. Sellers range
from brides with new or used
items, bridal stores from all
over the world with samples
or discontinued gowns, and
manufacturers with over-
stocks. Often, you can find
brand new, never worn, nev-
er altered, gowns and acces-

series for sale at less than
half the original price.
There are many bargains to
be found, and all it takes is a
little online research.
If you already know the
brand and style of gown you
desire, you can perform in-
ternet searches for online re-
tailers and discounters who
may have in stock (or can or-
der) your gown for a dis-
counted price. Average on-
line discount bridal shops
can save you up to 25% off
salon prices because many
are strictly on-line business-
es and do not have the over-
head costs of running a
store-front, bridal salon.
Many local full-service sa-
lons are losing business to
internet bridal retailers be-
cause they have difficulty
competing with the deep dis-
counts, therefore, you may
have noticed paid articles in
bridal magazines discourag-
ing brides from purchasing
gowns online. As long as
your expectations are that
ordering a gown from an on-
line bridal retailer means
that your dress will arrive
packaged in a small box, will
be wrinkled from the pack-
ing, need pressing before
wear, and any alterations
will need to be done by a\lo-
cal tailor or seamstress, you
won't be disappointed.
Another way to use inter-
net research to locate bar-
gain bridal bargains is to
perform searches for any
outlet stores that carry the
brands of gowns and acces-
sories you seek. For example,
the author of this article saw
the wedding gown of her
dreams in an-online auction
listing. However, the gown
was too small and the seller
did not have a larger size.
Unfortunately the gown had
been discontinued and all
boutiques shipped their left-
over merchandise to the
manufacturer's outlet store.
Success came with a call to
the cross-country outlet. The
dress was available in'the
correct size, available in two
colors, and the price of each
dress was only $44! Not a bad
price considering the gown
originally sold for $799 in the
boutiques. Since the price
was so low and the author
was unsure of the best color,
two gowns (one of each col-
or) were ordered. The ivory
gown was chosen for the

also offer a feature where
you can place free, online
"Wanted" ads for the item(s).
Sellers with items that fit
your description can then
contact you by e-mail to send
information and photos. Lo-
cal newspapers and trading
publications also offer free
or low cost "want ads" that
you may want to consider.
Too, check out their "For
Sale" listings. You never
know what you might find.
Several years ago, a friend
found her $1000 dream dress
for $200 in a "Trading
Times" style publication.
Other places to find bridal
bargains include thrift
stores, swap meets, and yard
sales. Often the bridal mer-
chandise found in these out-
lets are older in style, howev-
er, if you're looking for a
vintage gown you could easi-
ly find the perfect gown and
accessories for an, amazing
price. Too, if you have cho-
sen to make your gown or if
you purchased a very basic
gown in need of embellish-
ments, you could recognize a
significant savings by utiliz-
ing fabric, lace, beading, and
buttons from low cost gowns
found at thrift outlets and
yard sales. The fabric and

items they are displaying for
their clients and past clients.
It is not uncommon for
clients to ask vendors to help
them sell items or pass along
sales referrals, particularly
if a wedding is cancelled or
if the event was very expen-
sive and the bride and groom
would like to recoup some of
the costs.
One thing to remember
about bargain shopping is
that to realize significant
savings, you often cannot try
on the gowns (particularly if
shopping online, by phone,
through a newspaper, or at a
yard sale, swap meet, or
thrift store). Since sizes vary
greatly by manufacturer, it is
imperative to know your ex-
act body measurements --
particularly, your bust,
waist, and hip measure-
ments as well as an accurate
measurement of your height.
When measuring your
height, keep in mind the heel
height of the shoes you'll be
wearing. Most new, unal-
tered gowns are made to fit
brides up to 5'11" and 6". Uti-
lize actual measurements as
the most reliable way to de-
termine fit. If you are look-
ing at a gown advertised on-
line, ask the seller for both

embellishments can also be
used to make a number of
wedding accessories includ-
ing ring pillows, flower girl
dresses, wedding favors, etc.
Also check with friends and
relatives to see if they have
a4y wedding attire or acces-
sories to give, loan, or sell.
One more option for locat-
ing bargain bridal items is
checking with your bridal
service vendors. Often bridal
consignment shops start out
as other, service vendors

gown size and gown mea-
surements. If you're looking
at a gown at a yard sale or
thrift store, carry a tape
measure with you to mea-
sure the gown's measure-
Bargain shopping for your
bridal attire and accessories
can be both financially and
emotionally rewarding.
Throughout your search, you
need to stay focused on the
end result a feeling of pride
and accomplishment as well

If you are looking for
something in particular and
are having difficulty locating
it or need to find it in a hur-

such as florists, photogra-

business, the vendors often
expand their businesses to

as a sense of satisfaction for
finding the perfect gown and

Height: 6'2"
Weight: 188 ,

however, this year the crowd
will see more passing during
games, according to Coach
Frankie Carroll.
The quarterbacks are
the leaders of the offense.
Their aim is to throw the ball
to the receiver, who has made
his way down the field in an
attempt to make a touch-
down. If a touchdown is not
made, at ,least yards are
"We got a pretty good
team. Hopefully we can take
it all the way," said quarter-
back Chestin Harden.
Harden recently moved
to Madison from Arkansas
and is pretty good competi-
tion for starting quarterback
Blake Sapp.
"We rotate in and out,"
said Harden about the
amount of playtime himand

With his first year as
starting quarterback under
his belt, Sapp can really show
Harden the ropes as a MCHS

It's football season
again and the Rotary
Club is getting their
fair dose of local and
regional stats.
On the August 22
meeting, guest speaker
Coach Frankie Carroll
got Rotarians hyped
about the upcoming
Madison County High
School football season
by presenting the mem-
bers with the stats of
the Cowboy football
players. He then in-
formed them of the new
tactics they plan on tak-
ing this year.
"We're going to
throw the ball this
year," said Carroll jok-
ingly. He then rein-
forced that comment
with praise of the quar-

terbacks and receivers.
He went even further to
say that his slowest
runner makes the time
of 4.8 seconds.
The first district
game for the Cowboys
is against the Coffee
County Trojans on Fri-
day, August 31.
Guest speaker for
the August 29 meeting,
Bobby Scott, informed
the members of the
club the stats of the
Last year, Coffee
County was 9-3 for the
season and 17 of those
22 offensive players are

"It's going to be a

he was right; Coffee

in a 20-19 heartbreaker.

Dr. Huntington Potter,
CEO and director of scientific
research at the Byrd
Alzheimer's Institute also an-
nounced during the confer-
ence that the Tampa-based in-
stitute has just begun human
studies into the effects of caf-
feine on the disease and relat-
ed memory problems.
The Byrd Institute is com-

The human caffeine tests
are specifically designed to
study how well aging people
tolerate the effects of caffeine
and how effectively it reduces
a substance in their blood
that acts as a "marker" for
.the presence of Alzheimer's.
Earlier groundbreaking
research conducted by the in-
stitute found that the equiva-
lent of five cups of coffee a
day when administered to
mice with the Alzheimer's
gene prevented or reduced
pathological symptoms of the

day to the conference, Potter
reported to the gathering of

cule from green tea known as
EGCG and caffeine.

Neurochem, into the effective-
ness of a drug called
Alzhemed. But the results of
the first round of clinical
tests found "disappointingly
big differences" between data
collected at the different test-
ing sites, Potter said.
Meanwhile, among the
drugs creating a stir at the in-
ternational conference was
one long used as anti-hista-
mine in Russia.
"I think the data are curi-
ous and provocative," for the
Russian drug, Potter said.
"But it's unlikely the drug is
working through its anti-hist-
amine characteristics but it
may. It needs more work."
Overall, said Potter, "this
international conference has
shown the use of'biomarkers

study and new drugs assumed
to be promising still need ex-
tensive human testing in a
controlled fashion."
Meanwhile, the cost of
Alzheimer's to the Florida
economy is a staggering $1o
billion a year, noted Potter.
And the projected increases
in the number of people suf-
fering from the disease "is a
catastrophe that is going to

their populations age."
"Florida," he said, "is at
the eye of that story. "

Pregan Woen And ewMom

All babies deserve a healthy
start in life, but the unfortunate
reality is that too many babies
are at risk for health problems
before they are even born.
Many times, these risks can be
eliminated when the mom-to-be
receives some basic education,
guidance and encouragement.
To ensure that possible risk
factors are considered, expec-
tant moms should ask their
doctor or nurse to complete a
Healthy Start Prenatal Risk
Screening form. The form asks
a series of simple questions
that allows healthcare
providers to identify potential
risks and link moms to avail-
able services provided through
their local Healthy Start coali-
tion and community resources.
Completing the Healthy
Start Prenatal Risk Screen is
valuable for all mothers regard-
less of age, race or economic
status. Risk factors that could
result in a pre-term or low-
birth-weight baby do not dis-
criminate, and identifying
them early enough can make a
significant difference.
"It has been demonstrated
that if we can screen moms
early in their pregnancies, we
can measure the difference
made when we identify and in-
tervene with problems," said
Dr. Robert Yelverton, medical
director and CEO of Tampa
Bay Women's Care. "The rates
of complications, including
low-birth weights, premature
births, infant mortality and
still births go down. Prenatal
care and screening for high-
risk moms greatly reduces
these complications."
It certainly was worth it to
17-year-old Jewell McCray, who
was referred to Healthy Start
by her healthcare provider af-
ter completing the screening
form, received a variety of ser-
vices and was introduced to her
Healthy Start care coordinator,
who had also experienced
motherhood as a teenager.
"She gave me information
on different job offers, day

cares, childbirth classes and
showed me where to go for car
seats and cribs," McCray said.
"And once in a while she would
drop by my house just to talk.
She helped me figure out what I
should do how to go to school
and raise a baby To tell you the
truth, I can't even imagine
what I would be doing if I did-
n't have Healthy Start."
Yelverton suggests that all
moms request their healthcare
provider complete the Healthy
Start screen, regardless of
their social standing. "Many
women just feel that they are
not in the same category as
those who need supportive ser-
vices," he said. "They have a
private doctor and they think
he or she will take care of
everything for them. The risk
screen, however, identifies
things about the mom's health,
pregnancy and environment
that the doctor may need to
know about, but might not
Alicia Hendrix was one such
mom. After completing the pre-
natal screen at her obstetri-
cian's office, she never expected
to hear anything about it again.
After all, she thought, she and
her husband had a pretty de- -
cent combined income and
Healthy Start was for low-in-
come women.
But her completed screening
form pointed out that she had
an existing medical condition
that increased the chance of a
low-birth-weight baby which
triggered the referral by her
provider to a Healthy Start care
"Ireally didn't know any-
thing about Healthy Start, but
it sounded like a Medicaid pro-
gram to me, and I just thought
we made too much money to
qualify," said the 31-year-old
from Merritt Island. "But these
services are great. Every preg-
nant woman should ask her
doctor to complete the screen-
ing form. I received counseling
on a diet that is good for me
and the baby, information on

nursing, using car seats and re-
sources for finding pediatri-
cians, nannies and sitters.
"Receiving services from the
Healthy Start program pre-
pared me for a better emotional
well-being in coping with the
new lifestyle of having a child,"
Hendrix said. "It is very reas-
suring to have someone to talk
to and makes you feel so much
more confident about every-
thing you're going through."
Completing the prenatal
screen also can help create a
blueprint for addressing imme-
diate, and sometimes unfore-
seen, needs.
Such was the case with Lau-
rie and Ricky Rickett, who had
their lives turned upside down,.
due to a most unlikely and un-

expected pregnancy But thanks
to care coordination services
received from Healthy Start,
they have landed safely on their
Laurie and her then-fianc6,
Ricky, had just moved to Jack-
son County from Mississippi to
help care for her ailing father
when some pregnancy symp-
toms and mild weight gain
prompted a visit to the county
health department. It couldn't
be possible that she was preg-
nant, as Laurie, age 40, has an

adult child and had been non-
ovulatory for 20 years.
They were wrong.
Laurie was not only preg-
nant, she was seven-and-a-half
months pregnant, and the reali-
ty of their situation set in
quickly "We didn't know any-
one here," she said. "We didn't
know any doctors or nurses,
and didn't have any insurance."
Laurie said the nurse at the
health department asked imme-
diately if they wanted to see a
Healthy Start coordinator.
"I didn't know anything
about the program, but I
thought anything that would
help me or the baby would be
, an asset," she said. They would*
soon realize what an important
decision they had made.
"Healthy Start is unbeliev-
able," Laurie said. "We received
help with transportation to ap-
pointments and information on
child safety seats, breastfeed-
ing, how to hold the baby, SIDS
and applying for the WIC pro-
gram. A lot has changed over
the last 20 years."
A healthy Richard Thomas
Rickett was born on March 6,
2007. "This all has been a true
blessing," Ricky said. "If it
were not for Healthy Start, I
don't know what kind of. con-
versation we would be having
right now."
New moms also should ask
their delivery provider, pedia-
trician or family doctor about
the Healthy Start Infant Risk
Screen, a set of questions that
help moms find out if there is
anything about their baby's
health at birth that could affect,-
his or her first year of life.
And, as with the Prenatal
Screen, all answers are kept
private and all services are free:.

Antifreeze Poisoning Kills

Animals And People
By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Antifreeze is a deadly, yet surprisingly sweet concoction,
one that is ingested by thousands of animals and children a
year The side effects can include renal or cardiovascular
failure; brain damage, and even death.
The chemical that gives antifreeze its taste and poison is
ethylene glycol, a syrupy alcohol derivative. The result is a
sticky, sweet liquid that is appealing to the senses. Curious
humans and animals fall victim to accidents or even inten-
tional poisoning.
Because antifreeze tastes good. a Center for Disease Con-
trol report stated, it encourages ingestion of a harmful
dose. It only takes a small amount to be fatal, and victims
must be treated as soon as possible in order to survive.
Many companies have debuted safer products to use in-
stead of traditional antifreeze. One product uses propylene
glycol, which is not sweet, and six times less toxic than eth-
ylene glycol. Another product adds a bitter tasting chemi-
cal to the mix to dissuade drinking.

By Rich Quockenbush,
Lee United
Methodist Church
The blinking lights at the
school zones remind us to
slow down and to keep an eye
out for the youngsters as they
may run out on the streets
near the school yards. We are
careful to protect the children
when it comes to things like
automobile traffic before and
after school and protect them
with drug-free zones within
yards of the schoolhouse. But
what do we do to protect the
innocence of our children
otherwise? What are we doing

to preserve our own inno-
cence? Jesus once said in
order to enter the Kingdom
we need to be like a child.
Being like a child means
that we follow His direction,
but it also means that we are
less knowledgeable of the
things of the world and more
knowledgeable of the things
of God.
God's children face all
kinds of terrible things that
we should not have to face if
we lived in a Godly world. In
a Godly world, children would
remain children and not have
to deal with issues that they
and we are not prepared to
correctly deal with. (As if we
ever need to be.) Pre-teens
would not be dealing with
issues such as pregnancy, bru-
tal assaults and drugs.
We limit the number of
things that a child can do,
such as climb a tree, "play red
rover, red rover send some-
body over," because in our


,.--1 -.- .
lawsuit happy society they
are not allowed to get the
bumps and bruises we once
expected to get as a child. But
do we put as much emphasis
on protecting their minds and
The Word reminds us to
guard our hearts to watch
those things that we put into
our heads. In the computer
world we used to say "garbage
in garbage out." What kind
of garbage are we feeding the
minds of the little ones today?
What kind of trash are we liv-
ing off as well?
We are taught by this world
that our physical and fiscal
well-being is better then our
moral and spiritual well-
As I remember, Jesus grew
in four different ways In wis-

Back In

dom (mind), in stature (his
body), and in favor with God
(spiritual) and man (social).
These four aspects of growth
are just like the four wheels
on your automobile. You don't
drive a car on one flat tire for
very long.
What are we allowing the
world to teach the youth of
today? In fact, more impor-
tantly, what are we learning
as children of God?
You send your kids to
school to learn to fill their
minds with knowledge, to
train them up to deal with
other people, to grow on the
PE field. We have laws in this
land to insure that they are
there each day, that they are
protected while they are
there. School is back in to
help inflate three of the four
ways we come to grow, like
Jesus. What are we doing
with that fourth aspect? We
can make a decision to have
our little ones spend more

time in church and less in the
worldly things. The choice is
ours to make as parents. But
in the same sense all of us, no
matter how old we are,
whether we have school-aged
kids or not, are also children
of God, who need to come to
Jesus. We need to grow more
and more in favor with God,
and less in favor with the
things of the world.
School's back in will you
keep an eye out for children?
School's back in will we see
you in church?

Path of Faith Madison County Carrier Wednesday, September 5, 2007 3

On my eighth birthday in Mulbery, Ohio, I was
playing with my brother and other children in my
small neighborhood throwing rocks up in the air.
We were all having so much fun throwing the rocks
in the air and watching them fall to the ground! It
was so much fun, that is, until my brother threw a
rather large rock up in the air and I ran toward him
at the last minute. Yes, the rock hit me right on the
top of my head and soon I was covered with blood
from the top of my head to the bottom of my shoes.
I had on my new "birthday outfit" and it was cov-
ered with blood. To make a long story short, I had a
wound that had to be healed and a scar that I have to this
day at the right side of my head.
Physical scars are one thing, but we also have "SPIRI-
TUAL SCARS" as we travel on our journey towards
Heaven. To have a scar, you must first have a wound.
Many of us carry wounds from many different sources.
Where do the wounds come from, you ask? From afflic-
tions, adversity, criticism, death, discipline, persecution,
suffering, and trouble.
Psalms 34:19: Many are the afflictions of the right-
eous, but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
Psalm 31:7: Thou hast known my soul in adversities.
Lev.19:16: Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebear-
er among the people.
II Samuel 12:23: Now he is dead...can I bring him back

again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.
Rev. 3:19: God says, as I love, I rebuke and chasten.
John 15:20: If they have persecuted me, they will per-
secute you.
Romans 8:18: The sufferings of this present time are
not worthy to be compared with the glory, which shall be
Scars, the reminder of the pain, the wound, what is
left of the suffering and pain we all experience. Yet, Amy
Carmichael, missionary to India, many years ago wrote

the poem:
Hast thou no SCAR?
No hidden scar on foot, or side, or hand?
I hear thee sung as mighty in the land,
I hear them hail thy bright ascendant star;
Hast thou no SCAR?
Hast thou no WOUND?
Yet I, Jesus, was wounded by the archers; spent,
Leaned ME against a tree to die and rent,
Ravening beasts that compassed ME; I swooned,
Hast thou no WOUND?
We are the children of God, whose SON, JESUS, suf-
fered many wounds so we could be saved. WE must real-
ize that we too, shall have scars. Let us bear them gladly
as HE did.
Psalms 147:3: He, God, heals the brokenhearted and
bandages their WOUNDS. (SCARS)
Prayer: Dear Father, in Jesus' Name, I thank you for
the SCARS you still carry on you hands and feet for me! I
bow humbly at your feet and give you my life, my all.
Thank you for healing my broken heart and binding
up my wounds. Thank you for my SCARS. In Jesus
Name, Amen

New LDS Missionary Comes To Madison

By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.

The newest addition to Madison County is Elder
Dalmolin, a 21-year-old Latter Day Saints missionary,
nearing the end of his two years of service.
Dalmolin is originally from Globe, Ariz. Just shy of
two years ago, he left his mother and father, Carol and
Frank, and three older siblings, to use his life to serve
the Lord. Dalmolin is the first of his family to go on a
Before coming to Madison, Elder Dalmolin served in
Calloway In the week that he's been in Madison, he's
found the people to be very friendly, though not always
receptive of his message.
"I prayed, and felt that the Lord wanted me to serve
for two years. That led me here," Dalmolin said. His
mission is drawing to a close, and the end is bitter-
sweet. Dalmolin is excited about the prospect of seeing
his family after two years, but he also enjoys his mis-
sionary work.
His personal journey began with gaining knowledge.
Elder Dalmolin grew in his basic knowledge of scrip-
ture and doctrine, and was then able to impart that wis-

dom on receptive ears. As he continued further in his
journey, Elder Dalmolin was able to focus more on the
spiritual aspect. He began to apply the principles that
he learned the things that he saw as true because of
logic, he now feels to be true.
Elder Dalmolin was actually invited to pray specifi-
cally about a mission by an older missionary couple. In
his prayer, he asked God if he should do a mission.
Following his personal revelation, Elder Dalmolin sub-
mitted a letter of intention to the Prophet and 12
Apostles, who in turn prayed. They decided where
Dalmolin was to serve.
"This experience has affected my life greatly," he
said. My mission has helped me to grow not only in my
spirituality, but in maturity, learning, and discipline.
Following the completion of his mission, Elder
Dalmolin intends to return home to Globe, and finish
school at the University of Arizona. He isn't quite sure
what he wants to study, but will continue to spread
God's message.
The LDS missionaries can be reached at (850) 973 -
2329. Services are held at the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-Day Saints on Sunday mornings at nine. Youth
services are held at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays.

Elder Dalmolin is nearing the end of his
mission. When he finishes here in Madison,
he's heading back home to Globe, Ariz.

Faith Baptist Welcomes

Delbert Redditt As New Pastor

Jacob Bembry
reene Publishing, Inc.
Faith Baptist Church has welcomed
elbert Redditt as its new pastor.
Redditt, who began at the end of July,
me from Fort Christmas Baptist Church in
hristmas, approximately 25 miles east of
"Christmas is the last rural area in
range County," Redditt said, "and Orlando
growing towards it."
Redditt was the pastor at Fort Christmas,
e church that he was raised in, for five
ars. A bi-vocational pastor at the time, he
as also an agriculture teacher at Colonial
igh School, the animal science magnet Delber
hool in Orange County.
"I had some really good kids there," he said. "Some of
ern~ called me the other night."
Redditt began preaching as a fill-in minister over 20 years
;o. He was saved when he was 10 years old and remembers
e day very well.
"I even remember where I was sitting," he said. "I sat down

front on the first pew, as close to the pastor as
I could get, because I knew that I was going
up when the invitation was given."
Redditt cites Stanley Lewellyn, Eddie
Green, Jim Hughens and Vern Murray as
influences on his ministerial career. He also
says that Tom Baird was a great influence.
Baird now travels around, presenting his
series on Creation to churches and schools.
A graduate of the University of Florida,
Redditt has a Bachelor's degree in Sociology
and a Master's degree in Agricultural
Redditt enjoys playing the guitar in his
'spare time and writes a daily devotional,
which he distributes by email.
t Redditt Redditt's wife, Traci, is also a teacher. She
teaches eighth grade at Madison County Central School. The
Redditts have two daughters, Tara, 13, and Cheyenne (who

Vith Kindness

Pleasant words are as an
honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and
health to the bones.
Proverbs 16:24 (KJV)

When you pass
by someone on the
street, do you stop to say hello,
or do you rush past them with no
acknowledgement at all? Have you
ever stopped to consider how much
happier the world would be if
everyone would just take the time to
acknowledge each other?
Sometimes all it takes is one kind
word to make a person's day. Those
who choose to live wisely must
realize the value of sharing kind
words with others, even when they
do not feel like it. If they don't
practice this truth, they will not help
make the world a better place.

Amazing truth! How loud it rings,
That set my dark soul free.
Once enslaved by the world's deep
I'm now free indeed.
For truth hath given unto me,
Freedom's sweet victory
How great that freedom was to me,
When God's truth set me free.
From slavery to freedom's shore,
My soul now rejoices.
For truth hath set me free to live,
Live in His loving grace and truth.
By His enduring grace and truth,
I now live to serve Him.
From prison doors my soul did fled,
To God's eternal freedom shore.
The marvelous truth that set me
Reigneth eternally.
Amazing turth! How loud it rings,
To set all dark, sinful souls free.

It's Me God!t
Many times throughout history, the Israelites lost
faith. When traveling with Moses through the desert,
they became discouraged. When would they see the
Promised Land? Where was Moses taking them?
Did the Promised Land even exist?
They went even further with their doubts, especially when Moses went
up to the mountain to receive the Ten Commandments. While he was gone,
they decided they would embrace pagan gods. They built an idol and wor-
shipped and danced around it,
Returning to them, Moses was horrified. Yet, he was able to convince
them that they had sinned and must return to Me, the one and only God,.
They did so, and they were rewarded. They ultimately reached the
Promised Land.
If you maintain your faith, you too will be rewarded. Remember this
when Satan tempts you with doubts.

TV Ministry Group Calls

Televangelists' Divorce A A

"Terrible Testimony"

By Allie Martin,

The president of an organization
that tracks televangelists says the
announcement by Randy and Paula
White that they will get a divorce is a
terrible testimony to the world and
the latest chapter in a departure from
biblical principles and practices for
high-profile television preachers.
Pastors Randy and Paula White
founded the Without Walls
International Church in Tampa in the
early 1990s. The storefront church
quickly grew into one of the largest
mega-churches in the nation. Last
week, the couple announced from the
pulpit that they were getting a divorce
because their lives are heading in dif-
ferent directions.
Paula White is well known as a
life coach and for leading confer-
ences that have been endorsed by
celebrities such as Donald Trump.
Earlier this year, the Tampa
Tribune ran a series of articles
detailing alleged financial irregulari-
ties and questionable business prac-
tices within the church and its relat-
ed ministries. According to those
reports, Without Walls International
Church with a claimed member-
ship of 23,000 took in $40 million
I A_

in revenue last year and has $22 mil-
lion in debt.
Ole Anthony, president of the
Dallas-based Trinity Foundation,
believes the Whites' situation has
"something to do with this 'prosperi-
ty gospel,"' which he says results in
many televangelists being treated
like superstars and, as a result, los-
ing their focus.
"They begin to believe their own
press releases; that they're special
and ... can get away and do any-
thing," says Anthony "And it's all
about money and celebrity and
power, instead of laying down your
life for the people [around you who
are] in need and picking up your
cross and following the real Jesus."
Anthony, who has tracked televan-
gelists for years, encourages donors
to support their local church first.
"The hope and prayer always is
that you stop giving money to a tele-
vision tube and start looking around
in your own neighborhood where you
see where the money is going and
what's being done with it," he urges.
Randy White will continue in his
role as senior pastor of the church.
Paula White says she will return
there often to preach. She also leads
conferences and monthly seminars
in New York City
