Jury Finds


Robbery


Suspect Guilty

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.

A jury found David Allen guilty on
three charges involving the robbery of the
Joy Food Store in Madison on Thursday,
September 6.
The robbery took place on June 5, 2005.
According to a Madison Police Depart-
ment report, a black male, dressed in
black pants, a black shirt, a black partial
mask and gloves entered the Joy Food
Store, located at 810 West Base Street, at
approximately 7:01 a.m. Once inside, he
pulled a small caliber automatic handgun
and robbed the store.
The suspect got away with an undis-
closed amount of cash and an undisclosed
amount of cigarettes.
MPD Sgt. Jimbo Roebuck, who was the
initial officer to respond to the call, ar-
rested Allen for the robbery at 11 a.m. that
day. Allen's arrest took place on Jackson
Street.
Allen was found guilty on charges of
robbery with a weapon, battery and grand
theft III.
Allen's sentencing is set for September
27.
In other court news, a jury had been
seated but the trial set for Tuesday, Sep-

methamphetamine.

Progress Made


In Eliminating


Rabies
By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.

According to reports published by
Reuters, the canine rabies virus has been
eliminated in the United States of Ameri-
ca.
Other animals with rabies can still in-


fect dogs, however
the eradication of
canine rabies cuts
down dramatically
on the amount of
dog-to-dog trans-
missions occur-
ring yearly
According to
Madison veteri-
narian John
Lewis, "most of
the implications
[of the elimination
of canine rabies]
are in countries
with packs of rov-
ing dogs who pass
it from one to an-
other." In the Unit-
ed States, there are


It Is still Im-
portant to
have domestic
animals, especial-
ly dogs and cats
vaccinated
against rabies in-
fection.
Dr. John Lewis


leash laws that curb the number of dog
packs, and still, the announcement is pos-
itive and progressive.
Rabies is preventable, but rarely treat-
able. The virus kills 55,000 people a year
globally, according to the World Health
Organization. Only one person has ever
survived a rabies infection.
Canine rabies still exists in Latin
American, Sub-Saharan Africa, India,
China, and the Philippines. Canine ra-
bies has been eliminated in Japan, New
Zealand, Barbados, Fiji, Maldives, Sey-
chelles, Greece, Portugal, Norway, Swe-
den, Uruguay, and Chile.
Lewis cautioned that the announce-
ment in no way means that dogs don't re-
quire vaccinations. It is still important to
have domestic animals, especially dogs
and cats vaccinated against rabies infec-
tion. Dogs are still susceptible to rabies
from animals like raccoons, bats, skunks,
and even possums. The virus is incur-
able, only preventable.

Public Meeting Set In Lee About

Withlacoochee River And Springs
The Suwannee River Water Manage-
ment District will host a meeting on Tues-
day, October 2, to present information and
Sto receive early public comment and input
on the setting of minimum flows and lev-
els (MFLs) for the Withlacoochee River
and area springs.
The meeting will be held from 7 to 9
p.m. at the Lee Elementary School cafete-
ria, 7731 E. US 90, in Lee.
Florida Statutes require that MFLs -
water levels and flows designed to prevent
significant harm to water resources be
established for water bodies. The District
already has established proposed MFLs
for other water bodies including the Low-
er Suwannee River, Manatee, and Fan-
ning and Madison Blue springs.
MFLs will help in the water supply
planning process and in determining wa-
ter availability for consumptive use pur-
poses. In addition, they will provide guid-
ance in making water use and permitting
decisions; ensure sufficient water re-
sources for the public and ecosystems;
protect wetlands, fish and wildlife habi-
tat; and provide protection of water re-
sources for navigation and recreation.

I About Ignorance

Your point about our disease of ignorance is very im-
portant. If our community were suffering physical indi-
cations of any disease (as polio once upon a time) in the
same percentage as our unrecognized injuries through
students' failure to complete high school, we would galva-
nize volunteer groups and use all possible information to
save our people.
Ignorance is the silent crippler, the forerunner of the
real killer of progress: the absence of initiative. We have
greater generosity and volunteerism for drives for cancer
and heart funding-as well as for our sports teams- than
we have for preparing our potential skilled work force.
Groups of dedicated volunteers work for specific causes,
but we need a strong community ethic about elevating
every possible person for a better future. Hired educators
cannot make magic in a community mired in indifference
to county progress through maximum achievement of
each individual. Thank you for straight talk.

CALL 973-

IJIv 11vU


The long-await-
ed report from
General David Pe- National
traeus, our com-
mander in Iraq, is Security
due this week.
Ever since last Joe Boyles
winter when Pe- Guest Columnist
traeus was unani-
mously confirmed --
by the Senate and
departed for his
third tour in Iraq, we have been waiting
for this moment. What Will the general
say?
Already, the sides are positioning them-
selves for the report, getting their talking
points and arguments pro and con in line.
Ever since the troop surge was fully com-
plete in June, the security signs have been
obvious to all. Terrorist incidents are
down as are civilian and troop casualties.
Several provinces that were havens for al-
Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) are now quite peaceful
thanks to bottom-up leadership front Sun-
ni tribal chiefs. More and more positive'
news stories are being reported by the me-
dia.
On the downside, the central govern-
ment of Nouri al-Maliki has been unsuc-
cessful in achieving many important
benchmarks set by Washington politi-
cians. I wonder if the Iraqi Parliament
might have been more successful had they
been invited to set their own benchmarks
as I suggested six months ago. We'll never
know.
By all accounts, Petraeus will have
many positive things to say since the secu-
rity side of the surge equation ha8 been so
successful. In anticipation of this, Democ-
rat leaders late last week decided to pub-
licly denigrate our commanding general.
The strategy goes like this: if we question
Petraeus' credibility, it will be easier for
us to ignore what he has to say So the
usual cast of Reid, Durbin and Schumer
strode to the microphones to question the
general's honor and integrity Pretty risky
(and dishonorable) stuff for the Senate
leaders to question the integrity of a West
Point man like Petraeus where "duty, hon-
or, country" is a way of life.
It is inconceivable that Republicans
would have questioned the integrity of
General Pershing in 1918 or General
Eisenhower in 1944, both of whom were
appointed by a Democrat president. Quite
the opposite, political leaders of that era
gave the generals who commanded Ameri-
can boys their full support.


The fellow
10 r.--- who has to be
asking, "what
| about me?"
would be Ambas-
I sador Ryan
i Crocker, the oth-
er half of the Pe-
S traeus-Crocker
tag-team. Since
Petraeus is deliv-
ering what he
promised last winter, it seems to me that
the more important side of the equation
would be offered by Ambassador Crocker
who is charged with working the diplomat-
ic angle with the Maliki government.
It is ironic that for the better part of
four years, we have been pointing to the
security aspects as the obvious hole in the
recovery of a post-Saddam Iraq. Now that
we have good news in that arena, we're
complaining and rightly so about the lack
of political progress toward reconcilia-
tion.
There is political progress but it is diffi-
cult to measure. The Sunni leaders at the
grassroots level have turned against the
murderous tactics of al-Qaeda and toward
the Americans and Iraqi military. In turn,
sectarian violence between Shia and Sun-
nis has been tamped down and al Sadr's
Madhi army has been disbanded, at least
for the time being. Can this grassroots
support for reconciliation and a united
Iraq be transmitted up to the central gov-
ernment? For those old enough to recall,
that is the $64 thousand question.
We now know that Petraeus is recom-
mending we draw down the surge forces,
about 30,000 over the next ten months. He
doesn't want to make commitments be-
yond that point because of the fluid nature
of the conflict. Ambassador Crocker has
pointed out the good, bad and difficult
with respect to political reconciliation
among Iraqi political factions. They have
pointed out the danger and risk of precipi-
tous American disengagement, both with-
in the country and to the region in gener-
al.
Most of the questions by members of
the House Armed Services and Foreign Re-
lations committees have been responsible.
There are a few rogues in the group, but as
a rule, the questions have been sharp and
well answered by both witnesses. Kudos to
committee chairman Ike Skelton (D-MO)
for managing an important and excellent
hearing. Next, the Senate will have a go at
questioning the general and ambassador.

heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In
my father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I
would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if
I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and re-
ceive you unto myself; that where I am; there ye may be
also.

Deepest thanks,

Save Early, Often,
and Wisely for College
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
It's that time of year when college students across the
country reach for their backpacks and head back to campus
while their parents reach for their checkbooks and head for
the Tylenol. If your children are still quite young, though,
you can take steps now to reduce the headaches that may
come from those big college bills.
Just how expensive is it to send a child through college
these days? It's pretty expensive. In fact, it costs more than
$16,000 for one year at a four-year public college or univer-
sity, according to the College Board. And college costs have
been rising considerably faster than the general rate of infla-
tion, so the high costs of higher education are, in all likeli-
hood, only going to get higher.
Of course, you may not have to foot your child's col-
lege bills all by yourself. Scholarships and loans are avail-
able, and many students work part-time jobs, both during
school and on summer vacations. And yet, you may need, or
want, to help pay for a sizable percentage of college expens-
es. To meet this obligation, you need to save early, save
often and use the right savings vehicles.
Fortunately, you've got some attractive options. Here
are some of the most popular ones:

Coverdell Education Savings Account Depending on
your income level, you can contribute up to $2,000 annual-
ly to a Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA). Your
Coverdell earnings and withdrawals will be tax-free, pro-
vided you use the money for qualified education expenses.
(Any non-education withdrawals from a Coverdell ESA
may be subject to a 10 percent penalty.) You can place your
contributions to a Coverdell ESA into virtually any invest-
ment you choose stocks, bonds, certificates of deposit, etc.
Section 529 savings plan In a Section 529 savings
plan, you put money in specific investments, managed by
an investment professional. Contribution limits are quite
high more than $200,000 per beneficiary in many state
plans, although special gifting provisions may apply. And
all withdrawals will be free from federal income taxes, as
long as the money is used for a qualified college or gradu-
ate school expense of your child or grandchild. This tax
benefit was scheduled to expire in 2010, but it was made
permanent by one of the provisions in the Pension
Protection Act of 2006. Withdrawals for expenses other
than qualified education expenditures may be subject to
federal, state and penalty taxes. (Also, Section 529 distribu-
tions will appear as income on the child's tax return, which
could affect financial aid calculations.) Contributions are
tax deductible in certain states for residents who participate
in their own state's plan.
Permanent insurance If you own some type of "per-
manent" insurance policy, such as whole life or universal
life, you'll have a chance to build cash value. Your earnings
have the potential to grow on a tax-deferred basis, and you
can take policy loans for virtually any reason you choose -
including paying for college. Keep in mind, though, that if
you don't fully repay the loan, your policy may lapse, and if
you pass away before repaying the loan, the total amount
owed, including interest, will be subtracted from the death
benefit.

Before making any of these moves, please consult with
your tax and financial advisors. But don't wait too long -
your children may be young now, but time flies.

Greenville Teenager Recovering From Injury


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Seventeen-year-old Ryan
Mugge, of Greenville, con-
tinues to recover from a se-
rious injury he sustained
in an automobile accident
on August 17.
Ryan broke his pelvis af-
ter being thrown from the
back of a pickup truck.
He and his friends had
been at church that
evening at the Madison
Church of God. Later, he
and others from the church


had gone to eat at Denny's
and had then taken one of
their friends home.
While leaving the home,
Caleb Williams, 16, the dri-
ver of the truck, had a
wreck. Apparently, he had
a rear tire blow out, caus-
ing the truck to overturn
on its side. The distance
from the home, where the
friend had been dropped
off, to where the accident
occurred, appeared to be
too short a distance for
Williams to pick up any


speed in the pickup, which
has a manual transmis-
sion.
Others injured in the
rollover included: Caleb
Williams, 16, Jarred
Williams, 13, Stephanie
Johnson, 14, Tyler Kelly, 15,
and Kaitlan Davis, 13. They
received minor injuries.
Ryan said that he cannot
remember the accident. He
does remember being in
the hospital, but his memo-
ry of it is fuzzy and he said
that he cannot really re-

member the first day after
the accident.
Doctors thought that
they would have to operate
on Ryan but he surprised
them with his amazing re-
siliency, and they didn't
have to perform the proce-
dure.
Ryan returned home the
next Tuesday morning. He
currently undergoes thera-
py at Allied Therapy two
days a week and is home-
schooled by Gail Dickey He
said that doctors would re-


lease him to go back to
school at the end of six
weeks. He said he can't
wait to get back to school
and back in the Vaquero
Guard's drumline.
While at home, he has
been able to return to play-
ing his drum set and to re-
lax by playing a few video
games. He also enjoys vis-

Ryan said that he thanks
everyone for their prayers,

Greenville Elementary Receives


Supplies From Four Organizations

When representatives from Embarq, Progress Energy, Family Dollar and the Madison
Men's Club pulled up and started unloading much-needed supplies, which had been do-
nated to the school, it was like having Christmas in the summer.
On August 15, during the week of school pre-planning, six employees from Embarq
worked all day, helping the classroom teachers get their rooms ready for the first day of
school. There was no job too
big or too dirty for them to
tackle, and they did it with
humor and with a smile from '
the time they arrived until
they left that afternoon.

Selecting the location of your reception is the'first
thing you need to do. If you're going to have it at your cer-
emony site, this makes planning your reception a lot easi-
er. If you want to have it at a different location, however,
you need to decide where and soon.
Some popular choices are local hotels, restaurants, pri-
vate homes, clubs, and museums. Whichever you select,
keep in mind that the location tends to set the tone for
your reception.
After you've decided on your reception location, you
need to find out about fees, and make sure they fit your
budget. You also want to be certain the space is large
enough to accommodate your reception needs. Many loca-
tions will cover everything from food to parking for a flat
fee. Other locations will only rent you the space or pro-
vide partial services. These ideas will require you to work
with multiple vendors in order to have everything you
need. And they will have their own fees and charges.
Make sure you know everything each company will sup-
ply down to the last fork and how much they charge.
Now, you'll need to decide whether to you want to have


hors d'oeuvres or a complete meal at your wedding recep-
tion. Keep in mind any budget constraints when making
this decision. Also, before you start making calls, know
how many people you'll be providing food for. Then you'll
want to begin looking for caterers if your location doesn't
offer food service.
You can find catering services in your local Yellow
Pages, online, and through recommendations from your
friends and family Interview them first, and after you se-
lect one, be sure you know if they provide dinnerware,
glasses and flatware in their.costs and what those costs
are. If your caterer doesn't provide these, they will be able
to offer suggestions on suppliers.
Finally, here are a few other ideas you'll want to plan
for to ensure your wedding reception is stress-free and en-
joyable for everyone, especially the bride, you!
*Tips and gratuities
*Gift attendant
*Parking
*Valets
*Music and equipment
*Wait staff
*Bartending services if alcohol is to be served
*Shuttle or cab service after if alcohol is served
*Rose petals and rice

Getting The Wedding Help And Advice You Need


Planning a wedding is a big
job, and unless you're a profes-
sional planner, you need all the
advice and help you can get.
Before you run yourself
ragged, read these quick tips.
One of the first places to
turn to for wedding advice and
help is from a professional
wedding consultant. They do
plan weddings for a living and


are lifesavers when it comes to
planning a wedding. Check
your phone book for the ones
nearest you and start dialing.
Another great resource for
wedding help and advice is the
Internet. There are literally
thousands of sites chock-full of
useful tips, advice, how-to's,
ideas, you name it.
Many of them also have


links that make it'easy for you
to order everything from wed-
ding favors to bridal jewelry A
lot of them even have the abili-
ty to hook you up with re-
sources in your local area. So
when you wake up at 2 a.m.,
dying to find out where you
can find a pearl-handled cake
cutter, you know where to
turn.


Bookstore shelves are
stacked high with books that
offer wedding advice and help
on. Your nearest Barnes and
Noble or Borders has books on
everything from wedding eti-
quette to complete wedding
planning. You can also find
journals and planners that you
can use to keep track of all the
things you need to do.
Magazines are another use-
ful place to look for guidance.
The range is extensive, and you
can find information on all the
latest trends quickly, without
having to do a lot of searching
through a lot of stuff you're
not really interested in. These,
like books, have the advantage
of being portable, and that
means that time you spend
waiting in traffic can be put to
great use planning your wed-
ding.
If all else fails, there's al-
ways your mom. You know
she's dying to offer her help.
And if you're already getting
her guidance and would prefer
not to, just give her a call the
next time you wake up at 2 a.m.

Sentinel Slammers Poetry

Club Coming To NFCC
NFCC students and community members are invited to join
Slam poetry, an exciting, living, art form the kind of
spoken word poetry that is being performed nightly on
stage in cities such as Chicago and New York, is coming to
NFCC this fall. The Sentinel Slammers club makes its de-
but during the NFCC Club Exposition September 18 and
19 on the Madison campus. The new club is open to NFCC
students and community members interested in present-
ing live performances on campus as well as throughout
the community
Anyone who loves the dynamics of language is wel-
come to join the Sentinel Slammers. The club has a place
for creative writers, poets, rappers, song writers, theater
performers, and video technical volunteers.
What exactly is spoken word? It is the performance of
poetry which brings words to life in live, inspiring stage
performances. Poets tell about their life experiences or
give their opinions on any conceivable subject. The perfor-
mances are dynamic, explosive, and highly entertaining.
Sentinel Slammers club is looking for creative people to
jumpstart this exhilarating art form at NFCC. The goal is
to form diverse communities through a common interest
in poetry, songs, raps, and creative writing as well as to
create unique living language art forms. Another goal is
to inspire interest in famous authors and poets while
prompting students to experiment with their own poetry
writing.
Video editors and camera operators who can tape per-
formances are welcome as well. Club members will be
able to connect with other spoken word artists in the
north Florida area and an international audience by up-
loading video performances via the Internet.
Interested? Check out the Sentinel Slammers at the
NFCC Club Expo, September 18-19 from 11 a.m. 1 p.m. in
the NFCC Student Center. For more information, tele-
phone 850-973-1641 or email nixonr@nfcc.edu. Leave a mes-
sage for Rose Knox Nixon and Tolu Jegede, club organiz-
ers and sponsors.

HEALTH




That Tired Feeling May Be Anemia


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Anemia occurs when the level of healthy red blood
cells in the human bloodstream is too low. Red blood
cells contain hemoglobin, which carries oxygen to
body tissues. Body tissues must have a healthy sup-
ply of oxygen to survive.
Signs and symptoms of anemia include paleness,
irritability, fatigue, dizziness, weakness,' shortness of
breath, chest pain, numbness, and headache. Because


of fewer blood cells, the heart has to work harder to
pump oxygen rich blood to organs causing a general
tiredness.
People who are at risk for anemia, who don't have
an underlying medical cause, typically have a poor
diet, lacking in iron. Iron deficiency anemia is the
most common form, of anemia. Best sources of iron
include beef, beans, lentils, dark/leafy vegetables,
dried fruits, nuts, and seeds, as well as vitamins. Cof-
fee and tea make it harder for the body to absorb


iron, so those drinks should not be consumed with
meals.
Other causes of anemia vary from infection, can-
cer, heredity, blood loss, and inadequate production of
red blood cells, or excessive destruction of red blood
cells. Sickle cell anemia occurs when the red blood
cells are stretched out of shape, and are too stiff or
sticky to squeeze through blood vessels and reach the
organs that need oxygen. The fragile, stiff cells
break down more quickly in the bloodstream.


When Personality Becomes A Problem In Older Adults


For better or worse, people have certain personality
traits they can be outgoing, shy, demanding, boister-
ous, guarded and the list goes on. Past adolescence, per-
sonality traits usually don't change much throughout
adulthood.
But in older adults, personality problems can sudden-
ly emerge due to a difficult challenge, a life change or a
medical or psychological problem. Family members or
friends can encourage steps to find the root cause of the
sudden personality problem. It's often the first step to-

ward trying to regain balance.
The May issue of Mayo Clinic Health Letter offers
ideas that may help when a person's personality change
interferes with work, relationships or the ability to en-
joy life:
A medical or psychological exam: A sudden personal-
ity change may indicate a medical problem that may im-
prove with treatment. If there is no effective treatment,
knowing that someone has a particular disease or condi-
tion causing personality change makes it easier to un-
derstand the situation.
Finding substitutes for what's lost: Retirement, the
death of a spouse or other major life changes can trig-
ger personality changes. Adapting to changes that come
with age is a key to maintaining a balanced personality.
Finding new ways to use skills that are appropriate for
one's life stage may help fill some of the void of physi-
cal or social loss.
Changing a behavior: Asking a loved one to work on
changing a behavior or two may help the person func-


tion better, and make.the person more tolerable to be
around.
Refusing to play along: At some point, family mem-
bers and friends may need to decide they won't tolerate
negative personality traits. Open and direct communica-
tion.is a first step toward giving others an idea of how
their personality style affects others.
Looking inward: Whose personality has changed?
When a spouse has tolerated her husband's personality
traits for years and suddenly can't take it any more, it
