Town Of Lee Building For The Future With Event For New Youth Program

"There's no better place to live on Earth
than right here and there's nothing more
important than helping the children in our
area," boldly says Cheryl Archambault,
Lee Town Manager. Shy to receive praise,
but quick to give it, Archambault, also
Chairman of the Madison County Develop-
ment Council, wears many hats. Regard-
less of her full plate however, she is mak-
ing time, and finding ways, to initiate vital
youth programs beginning with a youth
summer camp this coming summer.

Determined that the required resources
can be raised without asking for any tax
dollars, Archambault is actively seeking
state and federal grants, as well as pursu-
ing a few corporate sources. '"A lot of el-
bow grease must be combined with these
resources however and it's unbelievable
how many officials from other towns share
our views and are willing to share their
time. In addition to our mayor and town
council, specialists from around the coun-
ty and state support this challenging ef-
fort," says Archambault.
This Saturday, October 6, Lee is holding
its inaugural event to kick off fund raising

for the program with the Town of Lee
Youth Camp Garage Sale. Beginning at
9:00 a.m. on the field and in the pavilion
adjacent to City Hall located at 286 NE CR
255, participants will offer items big and
small. One registrant intended to sell a
The Garage Sale will feature 10'xl0' ven-
dor booths. Anyone can reserve one of
these spaces for only $10 with an overflow
area for larger items. Each vendor keeps
the money from his or her booth sales, ex-
actly like a garage sale at home, which in a
rural community can sometimes be diffi-

A four-vehicle accident on Interstate 10
caused approximately $6,500 in damage to
the autos involved.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol

In Loving Memory Of A Dear Friend

The Husband and I lost a very dear friend this past
week, with the passing of Charlotte O'Steen of Mayo.
Charlotte and her husband, John O'Steen, have lived in
Mayo for many years. John is serving this year as the Right
Worshipful District Deputy Grand Master of Masons in
this area. John, in a description my husband gave of him
recently, is a man of "substance, character, patriotism, a
proud former Marine (serving in World War II.)
Knowing the two of them has meant so much to us. I
got to know Charlotte many years ago when she was the
District Woman's Club Chairman for this area, and I
served as the District Junior Woman's Club Chairman.
(This is looking back about 38 years ago, but the closeness
we shared is still vivid in my mind.) She just took me un-
der her "wing" and helped me become a well-trained
leader of Women's Clubs.
We attended the viewing for Mrs.'O'Steen in Mayo from
6 8 p.m. at Burns Funeral Home. The funeral service was
the next day at Burns at 11 a.m., with an Eastern Star Fu-
neral at the Arline Cemetery on State Road 27, about five
miles from Mayo.
Every time I saw Charlotte and John together, they al-
ways asked about Tom and Tuckey Moffses and their three
boys. The O'Steens lived next door to the Moffseses in the
Tampa area back in the '50's/'60's, and were very good
friends. The two couples thought the world of each other,
and the admiration continued throughout their lives, even
though they seldom saw one another.
We will all miss Charlotte so much. The last "duty" she
had as DDGM's wife wasntaieban4 charge of ;the Ladies
Evening at the District Meeting some months ago, and it
was handled With th'e grace-and dignity that she always
brought to any event she chaired. She brought with her a
lady from Mayo who did a wonderful, funny, and interest-
ing skit.
"Nuff said....Bye for now... See 'ya."

"It's a chance for residents and businesses to make a few
bucks and help a very good cause. And since the only mon-
ey going to the youth program is the $10 booth fee, we're re-
ally hoping for a lot of vendors," Archambault noted. She
went on to say that "there will be live entertainment and we
hope visitors will make a day of it. There's a lot going on
this weekend and we just hope people will take a few dol-
lars and a few minutes for the kids." Call (850) 971-5867 or
stop by City Hall for more details.
The youth camp is the first step in the youth program
initiative. It is a full summer camp intended to serve the
entire county and is far more than just play and recreation.
The program is designed to provide essential "building
blocks" to elementary age children by giving them a
creative and constructive introduction to becoming a
better student, worker and citizen.
Volunteers, practitioners and professionals are com-
ing together in a carefully crafted program targeting
the whole child. "Of course it's going to be fun as
well," says Archambault as she reveals an idea from
one of her many crafts and games resource guides.
"Parents need an alternative to summer daycare. The
children will receive meaningful "real-world" expo-
sure to various professions, sports and arts. We've got
to develop an entertaining way to get these kids to
start thinking about being part of the workforce one
day and get them the tools necessary to avoid the over-
whelming social issues confronting our middle
Madison County is designated as an area of "critical
economic concern." In a nutshell that means, "scores
are falling, social problems are rising, businesses are
slow to launch and children are in great need." So the
Mayor and Town Council of Lee are stepping up with
others around the county to address this enormous
priority one project at a time. The Lee Youth Camp
Garage Sale is a great place to start.

ing them to rapidly slow down.
Thomas S. McClean, 77, of Gulf Breeze, was traveling
the posted speed limit in the inside lane, approaching the
overpass at SR 53. As he topped the overpass in his 2004
Mazda, McClean applied his brakes very heavily to avoid
the vehicles that were slowed ahead of him. McClean was
unable to stop and struck the rear of Pope's car. Pope then
struck the Saturn driven by Sheppard and Sheppard struck
the rear of Allmond's truck.
The truck spun around and struck the rear of McClean's
car with the front of the truck.
McClean's passenger, Cynthia McLean, 70, of Gulf

Where Is Yonder?

Aren't there just some things in life you ponder?
I have many One of those is..... "Where is yonder?"
Now, think about this a bit before you answer. Where
EXACTLY is yonder?
My father uses this word constantly. As a child all my in-
structions on where things were was "over yonder." I just
learned to search well.
Now my children laugh at the same instructions, and di-
rections, that I used to receive. Brooke was the one that re-
ally got me to thinking about the word, yonder. She was the
one that came to me one day and asked (laughingly) "Mom,
where is yonder?"
One of my first days in Monticello (right after acquiring
the Monticello News, while driving around meeting every-
one, I asked where the Fire Department and EMS were lo-
cated. Their answer was..... (you guessed it)...... get back
on 19 and go south, and it's right down yonder on your
right." As I climbed into my car I had to laugh out loud.
That didn't tell me where it was. But, I drove until I knew
I had missed it, turned around and headed back to town
and really kept an eye out, until I saw it. "There it is!!! That
must be where yonder is!!!"
The dictionary's definition of yonder says "being in that
place or over there; being that or those over there" or "at,
in, or to that place specified or more or less, distant; over
there." or "being at an indicated distance, usually within
The word is derived from Middle English. The dictio-
nary describes the word as "not exclusively Southern but is
more frequently used there than in any other region of the
United States, and not only by older or uneducated speak,
ers. Yonder is not merely a Southern synonym for there,
which in the South tends to mean "only a few feet from the
speaker." Yonder carries with it an inherent sense of dis-
tance farther than "there" and is used if the person or
thing indicated can be seen: the shed over yonder. Or it
might be nearby but completely out of sight, as in the next
This is a Southern saying, and I know that, and, I con-
sider myself as Southern as they come. However, that is
one word I can honestly say that I never use. I think that as
a child I came to hate that word (never could find that darn
screwdriver that Dad had sent me to get over "yonder").
About, 20 years ago, my father hired a man from
Guatemala. He only knew about five English words, but
needed a job. As he stayed, and worked, he began to learn
some English. One day he came to me and said, "Emerald.
Where is yonder?"
"What?" I asked.
"Where is yonder? Your Dad told me to go get (some-
thing) and he told me it was over yonder, but I don't know
where that is?"
' I just laughed. You see...... I had already had my turn at
that game...... it was his turn now.
So the next time you use that word, or someone says it to
you...... see if you can figure out EXACTLY where yonder
is. Then call me and let me know.

The Looming Tower

The Looming Tower is a 2006
Pulitzer Prize winning book by
Lawrence Wright. The subtitle of Na i a
the book explains the subject: "Al- Natonal
Qaeda and the Road to 9/11."
Dozens of reviews indicate that Securinty
this is a well researched and very
important historical narrative. Joe Boyles
Five years in research, The Guest Columnist
Looming Tower examines the
growth of radical Islam from its w------ ..- .-
early inception in Egypt to the 9/11
attacks, a period of about forty
years. Journalist Wright begins with an excellent discussion of
Sayyid Qutb, an early member of the Muslim Brotherhood, and
the impact of this theoretician-martyr on radical Islam. Qutb's
writings influenced future jihadists beginning with Ayman al-
Zawahiri and his Egyptian al-Jihad movement.
Much of TheLooming Tower examines organizations and in-
dividuals who interpreted and shaped the jihadist movement.
Political intrigue led to organizations morphing into more
dominant and frequently more virulent groups. Such was the
case when Zawahiri's al-Jihad joined forces with Osama bin
Laden's al-Qaeda, the principal world-wide terrorist threat to-
Bin Laden came from a Yemeni family that grew to promi-
nence in post-World War II Saudi Arabia because of their ex-
pertise in heavy construction. Osama, one of many sons from
an extended family, was born in Jedda in 1958. At an early age,
he took to religious studies and a simple life. He led an Arab le-
gion of mujahideen in the fight against Soviet occupation of
Afghanistan in the 1980s. The Arab Afghans didn't accomplish
much, but they garnered a lot of publicity which enhanced bin
Laden's reputation.
After returning to Saudi Arabia, Osama formed al-Qaeda or
"the base" as an outgrowth of his experience in Afghanistan.
His militancy and in particular, his objection to Americans re-
maining ,in Saudi Arabia following, the Gulf War led to his ex-
pulsion to the Sudan. By 1996 he had worn. out his welcome and
the Saudi's convinced the radical Taliban that had emerged vic-
torious in the Afghan civil war to take this troublesome guest.
At this point, bin Laden was a nuisance but not a criminal.
When he left the Sudan, his family fortune had been squandered
in a combination of bad investments and misspent adventures.
Bin Laden's al-Qaeda is often blamed for early terrorist inci-
dents such as the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the Black
Hawk Down battle in Mogadishu, the 1995 Riyadh bombing, and
the 1996 Khobar Towers blast, but the association is tenuous and
often, after the fact. Not so with the 1998 East African embassies

bombing that killed hundreds in
Nairobi and Dar es Salaam. These
were al-Qaeda planned and financed
attacks, as was the October 2000 at-
tack on the destroyer USS Cole in
Yemen. After the 1998 attack, the
Clinton Administration launched a
couple of largely ineffective cruise
missile attacks against targets in the
Sudan and Afghanistan. The Cole at-
tack went unanswered.
That brings us to the horrendous
attacks on September 11, 2001 that

left nearly three thousand Americans and citizens of sixty other
nations dead, along with untold pain and suffering. It took near-
ly two years for America to shake off the negative economic im-
pact from the attacks in New York and Washington. A linkage
between the Cole bombers and 9/11 hijackers led FBI investiga-
tors to prove the link with al-Qaeda.
The Looming Tower is largely about Osama bin Laden, but
other figures in this evolving story take on prominence includ-
ing super-cop John O'Neill who dedicated the last years of his
life to catching bin Laden. Prophetically, O'Neill died in the col-
lapse of the twin towers.
There is quite a discussion about "the wall" of separation be-
tween intelligence and law enforcement. This rule, sharpened
by the Clinton Administration, hampered investigators from
connecting the dots in the months and days leading up to 9/11.
"The wall" fell in short order following the deadly attacks.
The Looming Tower reads like a Frederick Forsyth novel -
only this one is true. Does it contain.mistakes undoubtedly A
careful reading of Wright's "Acknowledgement and Notes on
Sources" explains how difficult it is to write a history when
many of the sources live a shadowy life and are unavailable for

Six years after 9/11, does al-Qaeda represent a credible threat
to the United States and western nations? I believe that it does.
Al-Qaeda has been greatly weakened by our relentless pursuit.
Its' most significant attacks since that fateful day have been in
Bali, Madrid and London and resulted in the deaths of about five
hundred innocents. Many other attacks have been discovered
during planning, principally in Britain and Germany The fact
that the United States has not beernattacked during this period is
no accident.

Griffin Bishop, while her mother worked
in the finance office of Madison County
schools. Miller has a brother teaching in
Monticello for North Florida Community
College, a sister teaching for the Univer-
sity of Texas at El Paso, a sister teaching
nursing at Decatur Community College,
and a sister on staff at the county office.
Miller spoke on three key points in her
"School System Report." Her first subject
was the school budget as affected by Home-
stead Exemption. "What impact will the
super exemption have on the school bud-
That question, thankfully, will not have
to be addressed, because super exemption
was deemed unconstitutional and will not
be seen on ballots. Had super exemption
been allowed, Miller commented, the
school systems would have seen big cuts -
over 2.1 million dollars over a several year
period in Madison.
Miller then addressed the Class Size Re-
duction (CSR) amendment, which will
move the class-by-class average for the 2008-
09 school year. The student per teacher ra-
tio will decrease for grades kindergarten
through three, there will be no more than
12 students per teacher; for grades four
through eight, there will be no more than 22
students per teacher; and for grades nine
through 12, there will be no more than 25
students per teacher.
The school system will have to increase
the number of teachers to improve the ra-
tio. Each classroom has to have the new av-
erage, or the CSR money reverts Capital
Outlay to build more classrooms. Districts
all over Florida are concerned about meet-
ing the CSR requirements for the upcoming
school year. If the school doesn't make the
average, the state takes the money, and the
school has to build a classroom.
For counties like Madison, finding certi-
fied teachers has always been a problem.
Although there is a decline in enrollment
for Madison County schools, the stu-
dent/teacher ratio has always weighed
heavy Miller estimated that seven teachers
would have to be added for next year, cost-
ing the system $300,000. The declining en-
rollment of 100-150 students per year at
$4,000 per student costs the system any-
where from $400,000 to $600,000 per year.
Additionally, a $500,000 cut in local taxes
and budget holdbacks equaling eight per-

cent for the two years combined reduces
the amount of funds available to schools.
Miller's last point in the "School System
Report" was about Adequate Yearly
Progress (AYP) and the No Child Left Be-
hind Act of 2001.
According to Miller, AYP is divided into
subgroups: economically disadvantaged,
gender, race, students with disabilities,
English language learners, and the total
number of students. AYP tests whether or
not students made a year's worth of
progress for a year's worth of time.
Although Pinetta Elementary would
have been considered an A School accord-
ing to Florida Comprehensive Assessment
Test standards, the school had fewer than
30 students in a particular tested grade, so
they had to take on the district average a
C. Pinetta only made 97 percent for AYP be-
cause of the score. To make AYP, a school
has to have 100 percent of their subgroups
pass yes in all categories.
Greenville Elementary School was Madi-
son County's F School last year. The school
did not meet proficiency in either reading
or math, and did not make AYP for the fifth
year in a row.
To address the problems within the sub-
groups for AYP, Madison County has decid-
ed to institute what Miller called Profes-
sional Development a program that will
focus on bringing the school back up to par.
The system will use Rubye Payne's "Frame-
work for Understanding Poverty," differen-
tiated instruction, Intermediate Intensive
Interventions, reading strategies, learning
environment and classroom management,
writing strategies, and math strategies.
AYP does not look at the individual as
much as it focuses on the group. No Child
Left Behind states that if the school system
does not make AYP in the first two years,
the school is "designated in need of im-
provement." If this continues for a few
years, the school may be forced to restruc-
ture by possibly replacing all of the teach-
ers and principal at that school which is a
problem for Madison County The problem
of finding seven extra teachers seems triv-
ial compared to finding a whole staff of cer-
tified teachers for a school.
Greenville Elementary and Madison
County Central School are both considered
"in need of improvement level four," mean-
ing that they've not met AYP for five years.

Both schools are currently in a phase called
"planning for restructuring." There are
several options to choose from, and MCCS
chose to reconstitute the school into small-
er learning communities, while GES chose
the "assistance plus path," which monitors'
the school on a monthly.basis. The schools
chose these options in lieu of replacing the
entire staff.
I All six schools are trying to make sure
they make AYP for the upcoming year. In
addition to the Professional Development
plans, the schools are planning on volun-
teer tutors, concentrating on subgroups,
supplementing educational services
through Title I, supplementing materials, a
district support team, implementing
schools in need of improvement plants, and
schedule blocks for reading and math.
One subgroup, economically disadvan-
taged students, makes up about 70 percent
of the population in Madison County
schools. The percentage of economically
disadvantaged students is estimated by cal-
culating the number of students on free or
reduced price lunches. Madison County is
actually one of the top four most impover-
ished counties in Florida.
Miller finished her presentation by
opening up the floor to questions. She
added that although Madison is growing,
the people moving here don't have school
aged children. Even though enrollment is
declining, because of the classroom-by-
classroom average, the system still needs
more teachers. "In order for schools to im-
prove in Madison County," Miller com-
mented, "it will take parental involve-
Miller responded to a question about fo-
cus on reading by saying "it [reading] has
always been a focus in Madison County
schools. However, in poverty stricken
homes, the kids don't read well." From in-
fancy to the start of school, the children
don't have printed material in the home.
"Children in Madison County need in-
tervention as early as they can get it," she
continued. Those children are develop-
mentally delayed because they haven't had
much interaction or reading material be-
fore they come to school.
Miller also said that AYP includes stu-
dents with learning disabilities. Both
Madison County Central School and Madi-
son County High School reported students

with disabilities as a subgroup; therefore
they have at least 30 students with disabili-
There is no different rating scale for chil-
dren who are mentally retarded. Only the
very challenged students with the most se-
vere disorders are allowed to take an alter-
native to the FCAT, the standard for deter-
mining AYP Those students only' account
for two to four percent of the total number
with disabilities. According to Miller, 27
percent of the student population in Madi-
son County schools is considered to have
cognitive disabilities of some sort.
Following Miller's question and answer
session, President Jim Holben presented
her with a Kiwanis key chain and thanked
her for her visit. Holben also posed the
question, "How many Rotarians does it
take to change a light bulb," making light of
the club rivalry, knowing' that Miller is a
member of the distinguished Rotary Club.

coordinator for the Suwannee River Re-

Jacksonville Man Pleads Guilty

To Creating Child Pornography

Undercover investigation leads to rescue of child victim ~

Attorney General Bill
McCollum today announced
that a Duval County man
has pleaded guilty to at-
tempted lewd and lascivious
molestation of a child un-
der 12 and promoting the
sexual performance of a
child, both second-degree
felonies. James Walker Mc-
Spadden was arrested in
January after a tip from the
Federal Bureau of Investi-
gation (FBI) led investiga-
tors with the Attorney Gen-
eral's Child Predator Cyber-
Crime Unit to discover Mc-
Spadden's production of
pornographic images of, a
nine-year old child. Mc-
Spadden was sentenced to
20 years in prison to be fol-
lowed by 10 years of sex of-
fender probation which in-
cludes electronic monitor-
"Some people have an ill-
conceived perception that
child pornography is a 'vic-
timless' crime and this case
clearly illustrates that is not
true," said Attorney Gener-
al McCollum. "Child
pornography memorializes
real, dangerous and devas-
tating abuse of a child."
The investigation was
initiated when the Naval

James Walker McSpadden
Criminal Investigative Ser-
vices examined a computer
previously owned by a
rental company Hundreds
of images of child pornog-
raphy were found in the
memory of the computer,
many of them appearing to
be recently-made images of
a young girl. The rental
company's records identi-
fied McSpadden as the pre-
vious renter. ,
During the course of
their investigation, authori-
ties determined that the girl
in the images was a nine-
year old child sometimes
left in McSpadden's care.
McSpadden was already
in custody at the Duval

County Jail on unrelated
charges when he was
charged with promoting
sexual performance by
child and lewd or lascivious
molestation. The child,
whose identity is protected,
has since received services
from the Attbrney Gener-
al's Victim Advocates. The
case was jointly prosecuted
by the Attorney General's
Office and the State Attor-
ney's Office for the 4th Judi-
cial Circuit. As part of his
sentence, McSpadden must
register with the state as a
sexual predator.
"We must work to change
the notion that child
pornography possession
and distribution is harm-
less or that these victims
are not dramatically im-
pacted for the rest of their
lives," said Attorney Gener-
al McCollum.
"When the home is no
longer safe and children are
sexually abused by individ-
uals who go on to document
the 4buse through pornog-
raphy, the worst scenario of
child violence not only
comes to life, but will live
forever in the form of these
The Child Predator Cy-

berCrime Unit's mission is
to protect children from
computer-facilitated sexual
exploitation. The' unit does
this by working coopera-
tively on a statewide basis
with law enforcement agen-
cies and prosecutors to pro-
vide resources and exper-
tise while preventing the
spread of these crimes
through education and com-
munity awareness. The
Child Predator CyberCrime
Unit is a merhber of the In-
ternet Crimes Against Chil-
dren Task Force (ICAC) of
North Florida and the Jack-
sonville FBI Office Cyber-
Task Force.

Deputy Thomas Glee

Retires With Praise And Party

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
As he went about his daily business on Friday, Septem-
ber 28, Deputy Thomas Glee experienced his first day of re-
tirement. After almost 30 years in the Sheriff's Depart-
ment, his first day of retirement should be an enjoyable
break. Along with any activities Glee may choose to enjoy,
he should feel an extra pride knowing that he is well re-
spected by his peers and that the day belonged to him en-
tirely and literally
The City Commission made sure the day would belong to
Glee as Jim Catron, Madison City Commissioner, present-
ed Glee with the official proclamation that September 28 is
Thomas Glee Day for the City of Madison. Before the cer-
emony concluded with a buffet fit for a family reunion, a
dozen more officials praised Glee for his exceptional com-
mitment and years of service.
Madison County Sheriff Pete Bucher opened the cere-
mony with a few warm and humorous reflections and then
presented Glee an engraved watch. Retired Sheriff Joe
Peavy followed by awarding Glee a handsome plaque and a
few stories of his own.
With the awards and formal recognition out of the way,
a playful roast took place. Starting with the judges and
county officials, numerous co-workers and a few friends
stepped forward telling a story or two about their relation-
ship with Glee. The entire gathering, even officials typi-

cally reserved in the performance of their duties, were
laughing loudly.
Glee stood quietly with a big smile as each concluded
with a respectful, "good luck and stay in touch." Sheriff
Bucher noted Glee would "remain on reserve and fill in
from time to time." Glee gave a "big thanks" and closed by
cutting his cake.

Who Pays For What?

By Kristin Oiam '
As with many changing customs and traditions, the financing of a wedding has changed too. It is no longer writ-
ten in stone as to who is required to pay for different aspects of a wedding. In fact, many brides and grooms are
paying for their own wedding.
However, here are the "traditional" roles in financing a wedding for your convenience:
1. THE BRIDE generally pays for the groom's wedding ring. lodging for her out of town attendants, a luncheon
or party for her bridesmaids, a wedding gift for her future husband, and gifts for the bridesmaids.
2. THE GROOM generally pays for engagement ring and the bride's wedding rings, any fees for the marriage
license and/or other legal documents. He also finances the costs of the honeymoon, a wedding gift for his fu-
ture wife. lodging for his out of town attendants, the clergy fee, and transportation.
3. THE BRIDESMAIDS and MAID OF HONOR generally pay for the bridal shower, and the bachelorette
party. They also pay for their own gowns and accessories.
4. THE GROOMSMEN and BEST MAN generally pay for the bachelor party and
for their own tuxedos or other formal wear.
5. PARENTS OF THE GROOM generally pay for the rehearsal dinner, and/or af-
S. ter wedding brunch. Of course, they also give a generous gift to the couple.
6. PARENTS OF THE BRIDE generally pay for everything else. This comes from
the old tradition of dowry. They pay for everything needed for the reception, includ-
ing music, flowers, the reception facility, food, bar costs, and anything else. They also
buy their daughter her bridal gown, pay any gratuities, and of course, they also give
a generous gift to the couple.
S,,As stated these are not rules but merely guidelines. Your own
personal finances will dictate what type of wedding reception you
have, and who pays for what is entirely up to you and your fami-

As Dignitaries Gather For Ribbon Cutting

Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Michael Curtis, September 28, 2007
Officials and honored guests surround County Commission Chairman Roy Ellis as he cuts the ribbon for the Wa-
ter and Wastewater Interchange Infrastructure and SE Dale Leslie Drive.

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The ribbon cutting for both the Water and Waste-
water Interchange Infrastructure and SE Dale Leslie
Drive was held last Friday and brought out leadership
from all around Madison County The new water tower
boldly displaying "MADISON COUNTY" on its side will
serve the entire corridor from County Road 255 to Coun-
ty Road 53, including Lee and Greenville.
The significance of this project might not be noticed
yet because the development is still young, but when
built completely, SE Dale Leslie Drive may represent
that hard-to-reach business model that community lead-
ership has been trying to make happen for decades. The
area will provide a place for new businesses, and poten-
tially thousands of jobs, without disturbing those qual-
ities that have defined Madison County for so long.
Roy-Ellis, Chairman of the Madison County Board
of County Commissioners, opened the ceremony by
complementing the attending officials and reminding
everyone that this project was "truly a collaborative ef-
Terri Lowery of Jones Edmonds concurred. Jones
Edmonds provides professional services for these types
of projects. "I've seen so many of these projects fail be-
cause initial commitment dies as agencies and commu-
nities fail to reach agreements. This was an impressive
collaboration," Lowery said.
For the state, Lynn Bannister, Director of Outreach,
was present from U. S. Senator Bill Nelson's office, hav-
ing provided additional coordination from state and fed-
eral agencies. Bannister, was quick to give credit to

town and county officials who returned the complement
just as quickly
On the county website located at, Allen Cherry, Madison
County Coordinator states, "This project was initiated
by encouragement from the Madison County Develop-
ment Council to the Madison Board of County Commis-
sioners. From there the Commission enlisted the sup-
port from the three municipalities. After much plan-
ning, the county and cities agreed to finance the project,
through a portion of the local option sales tax. From
start to finish, this process has taken approximately
four years."
Cherry went on to say, "Madison County construct-
ed a five mile stretch of road parallel to the interstate
between SR53 and CR255. This road was built with the
aid of Florida Department of Transportation funding
through a County Incentive Grant Program (CIGP)
grant. The Madison County Road and Bridge Depart-
ment has been instrumental in the development of this
road. Water and sewage are also available along this
five-mile stretch of road."
Mayor Elesta Pritchett, Town of Greenville, ex-
pressed her excitement that this day had finally arrived
and remarked on the significance the project has for
Greenville. According to Pritchett, Greenville had "at-
tempted to do this previously to no avail." She also stat-
ed, "Transportation from Valdosta to Gold Kist already
exists. Combining these services with the new infra-
structure will facilitate enterprise for Greenville that
has been a challenge for years. Our children can stay at
home and have good jobs." Pritchett concluded.
Cheryl Archambault, Lee Town Manager, expressed
her appreciation to everyone involved, saying the pro-
ject "is so important to all the participating communi-
ties and that it was a real pleasure to work with such
fine people." Archambault further noted, "The support

Council has been incredible."
Operated under the Town of Lee Water System, the
new water system has a state of the art computerized
management system named SCADA, which stands for
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition. It's the only
one in the county and controls both the 100,000-gallon
Lee tower and the new 150,000-gallon tower. In everyday
language, it simply means the water system is managed
with a computer program, making it easier to run with
better control than the old pressure systems although a
pressure backup system is also in place.
Water Operator Mike Register, who supervises the
system, still has his share of field calls and regularly in-
spects the physical facilities. When he monitors and ad-
justs the system however,. he does so from his desktop
computer. Using a colorful display screen that Register
helped configure, it looks a bit like "Mission Control" as
he works.
This new system will not raise water rates for town
or county residents, although the payments received
will be split with the City of Madison for wastewater
collection. Another example of the shared efforts that
have gone into making all this possible, Lee will provide
the water going into homes and businesses from the
new interchange and Madison will take away the waste-
water. Residents will still receive one bill from Lee who
will forward the wastewater portion to Madison.
The deeper sentiments surrounding the event were
made especially clear when Mayor Jim Catron, City of
Madison, expressed his feelings regarding the project.
Referencing an excerpt from the poem "If" by Rudyard
Kipling, Catron highlighted the human element that went
into this challenging process. Catron can definitely be
counted among the dignitaries that believe this project
proves Madison County can share, grow and improve with-
out the collateral damage.
Madison County Clerk of the Court, Tim Sanders in-
troduced the second portion of the ribbon cutting, the for-
mal dedication of SE Dale Leslie Drive. During the dedica-
tion Sanders eloquently told several stories about Leslie's
contribution to Madison and the heroism he demonstrated
during WWII earning him the Navy Cross. To learn more
about this outstanding citizen, Sanders suggested everyone
"visit the Treasures of Madison Museum."
Following closing comments by Chairman Ellis, offi-
cials and honored guests gathered as Ellis cut the ribbon, of-
ficially ushering in a time of new opportunities for resi-
dents to share Madison County's rich heritage with
their children. The water system and the new road are
literally "paving" the way.

Lifesaving Breakthrough In Stopping

Heart Attacks Celebrates Milestone

This year celebrates the 30th anniversary of a med-
ical breakthrough that has saved the lives of millions
of heart attack victims and enabled heart attack sur-
vivors to enjoy more normal lives.
It was 30 years ago that Dr. Andreas Gruentzig used
a small tube with a tiny balloon on the end, called a bal-
loon-catheter, to open his patient's blocked heart

The procedure, called angioplasty, restored normal
blood flow to the heart, relieved the 38-year-old pa-
tient's chest pain and likely prevented a heart attack.
Before angioplasty, survivors of heart attacks often
faced life-long disability and physical restriction.
This year, cardiologists from around the world are
celebrating angioplasty's 30 years of progress in stop-
ping heart attacks and treating coronary artery dis-
ease. They are also looking ahead to new frontiers, in-
cluding the promise of angioplasty and stent place-
ment to stop stroke, America's third-largest killer and
the leading cause of serious disability
"Thirty years ago, one in four heart attack victims
died," said Bonnie Weiner, M.D., president of The Soci-

ety for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions
(SCAI) and professor of medicine and interim chair of
cardiovascular medicine at St. Vincent Hospital at
Worcester Medical Center in Worcester, Mass. "Today,
more than 95 percent survive. And it's very typical for
heart attack survivors to return to work and normal
activities just a few days after angioplasty."
"Although heart disease continues to be the num-
ber one killer in the U.S., the success and progress of
angioplasty is one of modern medicine's most inspir-
ing stories," says Steven Bailey, M.D., SCAI secretary
and interim chief of the Division of Cardiology, pro-
fessor of medicine at the University of Texas Health
Sciences Center at San Antonio.
The discovery that balloon catheters could serve as
tools for delivering medical therapies to arteries

WVVe truly strive
to be the best

we can be.

G. E. "Trey" Powell, MD

"As the field of cardiology
evolves, South Georgia Mledical
Center continues to show it's
commitment to our heart
program by investing in new
technology and new techniques.

Our physicians and staffare
always looking out for the
patient's best interest. I think
our outcomes are as good as
anybody else's and we continually
compare ourselves against the
best benchmarks around the state.

Nobody here is satisfied with an
average grade. We truly strive
to be the best we can be."


Medicine is our life vw

Tne u

launched a new era of "interventional cardiology." Un-
til then, emergency coronary artery bypass graft
surgery (CABG) and clot-busting drugs were the only
interventions to stop heart attacks and treat coronary
artery disease.
Angioplasty, which is frequently accompanied by
stent implantation, is a minimally invasive procedure
that requires no general anesthesia. Steady advances
in the techniques and tools of angioplasty have made
the procedure a treatment option for more patients. In
the early years, an estimated five to 10 percent of pa-
tients with heart disease were candidates for angio-
plasty, and it was successful just 65 percent of the time.
Today, approximately two-thirds of patients with
coronary artery disease are candidates for angioplasty,
stenting and other catheter-based treatments. The
treatments are successful in 98 percent of patients, and
major complications occur in only 1.5 percent of cases.
Just one patient in 1,000 needs emergency bypass
Refinements in catheters and balloons have been
continuous. But dramatically improved patient out-
comes are attributed to two other major advancements:
The bare metal stent, approved by the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration in 1994, was designed to ad-
dress the problem of sudden collapse of an artery fol-
lowing angioplasty Stents overcame this problem by
propping the artery open and restoring normal blood
The drug-eluting or coated stent, first approved
in the U.S. in 2003 and designed to release medication
over time to interrupt the biologic processes that
cause tissue growth and re-narrowing inside the stent,
has reduced the incidence of tissue build-up from 40
percent in the early days to just five to seven percent
Looking ahead, angioplasty's catheter-based proce-,
dures and tools offer exciting potential for treating
other serious health issues effectively-and less invasive-
One of the most exciting areas of development is the
treatment of diseased carotid arteries, the vessels that
supply blood to the brain, to stop or prevent stroke.
Catheter-based procedures are also being used to
treat renal arteries that supply blood to the kidneys and
arteries that provide pxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to-
the legs and feet. ..-
Even newer devices are being delivered via catheter
to close a small, naturally occurring hole between the
upper left and right chambers of the heart that puts
some patients at a higher risk of stroke.
The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and
Interventions is a 3,800-member professional medical
society whose mission is to promote excellence in inva-
sive and interventional cardiovascular medicine. SCAI
has undertaken this public education initiative with its&
own resources as well as support from Abbott Vascular,

At NFCC Art Gallery

The works of Lisa Bar-

October in the NFCC Art

one's environment, experi-
ences and emotions.
"My work reflects my
interest in capturing sub-
tle moments in time that
are often overlooked.
Rather than depicting spe-
cific experiences or per-

translation for the way
that the world is common-

ly experienced at an intro-
spective level," said Bar-
Among the works is
"Lapsing," an oil on can-
vas in two-parts, known as
a diptych. Barden ex-
plained, "I often work in
series to suggest the im-

Take This

Retirement Planning 'Quiz"
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Your school days may be behind you, but that doesn't
mean you shouldn't test yourself on various subjects from time
to time. And one of the most important topics you can study is
Retirement Planning. So, take a couple of minutes to take this
"quiz." The answers and even the questions may prove valu-
able to you as you save and invest for retirement.
Have you put a "price tag" on your retirement lifestyle?
All of us have different ideas of the "ideal" retirement. Your
brother may plan to travel the world, your sister may want to
open her own small business and you may choose to volunteer.
Once you know how you want to spend your retirement years,
you can calculate about how much your retirement will cost. A
financial advisor can help you arrive at a good estimate of how
much you'll need to spend per year.
Do you contribute to your 401(k) or other
employer-sponsored retirement plan?
If you have a 401(k) or similar plan where you work, you'll
receive several key benefits by contributing. First, your money
has the potential to grow on a tax-deferred basis, which means
it can potentially grow faster than if it were placed invest-
ment on which you paid taxes every year. Second, you typical-
ly invest pre-tax dollars, which means your contributions can
actually help lower your annual taxable income. And third, you
can spread your dollars among a range of various investment
Do you boost your 401(k) contributions
every time your salary increases?
If you don't, you should. Your annual 401(k) contribution lim-
its are pretty high: $15,500 in 2007, or $20,500 if you're 50 or
older. Obviously, the more you contribute, the greater your
chances of achieving your retirement savings goals.
Do you also contribute to an IRA?
Even if you contribute to a 401(k), you can put money in an
IRA. A traditional IRA has the potential to grow tax-deferred,
while a Roth IRA offers tax-free earnings potential, provided
you've had your account at least five years and you don't start
taking withdrawals until you're 59-1/2. (Income limits apply to
the Roth IRA, however.) In 2007, you can put in $4,000 to an
IRA, or $5,000 if you're 50 or older. And you can fund your
IRA with a variety of different investments.
If you're self-employed, have you
set up a retirement plan?
If you work for yourself, or run your own small business,
you'll need to set up a retirement plan. Fortunately, you've got
many attractive options, all of which offer tax deferral and a
range of investment choices. Depending on your situation, you
can establish an "owner-only" 401(k), a SEP-IRA, a SIMPLE
IRA or a Keogh plan. Your tax advisor can help you select the
plan that's right for you.
Have you explored other retirement savings vehicles?
If you've "maxed out" on your IRA and your 401(k) or self-
employed plan, and you can still afford to put away more for
retirement, you'll want to explore other investments, such as
annuities, which offer tax-deferred growth potential and have
very high contribution limits.
There's no passing or failing grade to this quiz but if you've
answered "yes" to all the questions, then you're probably put-
ting yourself in a good position to ultimately work towards
your retirement goals.

Classroom Walk Through Training
School administrators from the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium partic-
ipated in a Classroom Walk Through (CWT) training recently to update their knowl-
edge and skill in working with new software published by TeachScape.
The training is one component of Leadership PAEC, a leadership development
program for school leaders in PAEC member districts.
The CWT consists of school administrators conducting two-to-four-minute class-
room visits to take a "snapshot" of what is going on with instruction in the classroom
setting. Observations are recorded on a hand-held computer and saved until the ad-
ministrators return to their offices to generate data and print reports about what was
seen and if the teacher is teaching appropriate standards relevant to the require-
ments of the subject. Teachers from two school districts participated in the training
at Riversprings Middle School in Crawfordville.

indi Lyn Floyd Picks Up The Reigns

For Madison County High School

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Carrying a huge
smile and inspiring
school spirit, Randi Lyn
Floyd, a.k.a. R-Flo," is.
this year's Cowgirl for
Madison County High
School. Riding since she
was a child, Floyd proud-
ly rides Frost, a fine
white and brown quarter-
horse, during the MCHS
football games.
Floyd said her par-
ents, Randy and Kathy
Floyd, were "very excit-
ed" that Randi Lyn was
selected. Ed Sapp, the
Agriculture teacher at
the school, selected
Floyd, who participates
in Western Horseman-
ship in he&r spare time.
When asked about
her nickname, Floyd said
that her older .sister
Tiffany was nicknamed
"T-Flo", as in (T)iffany
(Flo)yd and that it just
carried over. When sug-
gested that she might
also be nicknamed
"Rawhide Randi," keep-
ing theme with her role
as the Cowgirl, Floyd shy-
ly responded, "That'll
work too."
Whatever you call
her, it's evident that Ran-
di Lyn Floyd will ride
with pride in support for
her school and family.

jokes and imitations that
really got the crowd going.
He then lowered his tone
and shifted to several prac-
tical messages regarding
the importance of keeping

good company and avoid-
ing drugs and alcohol.
The highlight of the
event was a comedy Im-
prov segment where six
students were selected to
participate. Using a hu-
morous word game,
Pickard was able to
demonstrate elements of
teamwork, overcoming
fears and the importance
of having a "Yes Attitude."
Pickard strongly em-
phasized the need for all of
us to have lives filled with

"constructive activities
and purpose, however we
define it." He noted that a
large percentage of offers
for drugs and other de-
structive behavior take
place simply because teens
have too much empty time.
"Why not, you've got noth-
ing better to do!" Pickard
believes it's critical to have
goals, going as far as to say,
"anything is possible, even
those big dreams we carry
from early childhood."
If the audience re-
sponse and Pickard's
growing popularity are
any indication, Madison
County youth greatly bene-
fited from this experience
and lives were touched.
The fact that the resources
for his visit came through
a Safety Agency grant un-
derscores the po nt that
good, and unfortunately
bad, decisions affect every
aspect of the community.
One way or another, choic-
es will be made.

the Florida Crown Conference Playoffs. Our first playoff game will be on October 9

The Aucilla Christian Academy Warriors downed Randolph Southern Friday,
September 28 in gridiron action by a score of 35-26. Aucilla now stands at an unde-
feated 5-0 season.
Head Football Coach Joe Striplin named Casey Anderson as the offensive player
of the week. He had three pass receptions for 71 yards and one touchdown.
Woody Vollertsen was named the defensive player of the week. Vollertsen had
whopping 15 tackles, five assists and three quarterback sacks.
On the offensive side of the field, eighth grade quarterback Matt Dobson had 11
pass completions out of 28 attempts for 180 yards and one touchdown and he had
three rushes each for TDs, and nine rushes for a total of 80 yards.
Matt Bishop had 15 rushes for 92 yards, two touchdowns; and Jerel Drew, two for
In pass receptions, Kyle Barnwell had four for 70 yards; Reggie Walker, two for
15; Drew, one for eight; and Bishop, one for 16. AJ Connell was three of four in extra
On the defensive side of the field, Walker had five tackles, three assists, two in-
terceptions; Barnwell, eight tackles; Anderson, seven tackles; and Brandon Dunbar,
one pass interception.
The Warriors will square off against FAMU, 7:30 p.rit., Friday. Oct. 5, there.
Striplin said it would be the second district game for both teams; FAMU and ACA go
into the match-up 1-0 in district play "FAVMU is last year's defending state champi-
ons," said Striplin. "They are a well-coach team of great players. We've got to come
up with a great game plan if we're going to stop them. FAMU is a very physical
team, but the way we have been playing, we stand a good shot at the win."

Warrior JV Loses To Maclay

By Fran Hunt
Special from The Monticello News
The JV Aucilla Warriors fell hard
to Maclay on Thursday, September 27,
by a score of 21-0.
Head Coach Daryl Adams attrib-
uted the loss to the Warriors being un-
able to move the ball effectively
against Maclay. "Maclay has a very
good JV team," said Adams. "They
have 44 kids, we have 22. They are
very strong, big, they have speed, and
size and they are undefeated."
On the offensive side of the field,
Levi Cobb had two rushes for 11 yards;
Trent Roberts, four for 13 yards;
Bradley Holm, four for ten yards; and
Philip Watts, eight for seven yards.
On the defensive side of the field,
Cobb, five tackles; Watts, eight tackles,
one assist; Holm, two tackles, one as-
sist; Jered Jackson, four tackles, one
fumble recovery; Hans Sorensen, two
tackles; Roberts, four tackles, one as-

sist; Matt Tuten, four tackles, three as-
sists; Tyler Jackson, two tackles, one
interception; and Austin Ritchie, two
tackles, two assists.
The Warriors have a week off and
for what would normally be a game
night, they will be on the field better-
ing their offensive and defensive
strategies. Gridiron action will re-
sume against Brookwood, in the final
game of the season, 6 p.m. Thursday,
Oct. 11, there.
The Warriors will have to step up
to their best game of the season
against Brookwood because when Au-
cilla played them previously in the
year, the Warriors lost, 24-14. Adams
attributed that loss to the fact that
Brookwood is offensively a "varsity-
like" team. "Brookwood has a great
quarterback with great passing skills
and has very strong receivers," said
Adams. "We're going to have to do
what we can to hold them."
