The Price


Of Progress


Lee Man Indicted For Murder


BY JESSICA HIGGINBOTHAM
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A 21-year-old Lee man was indicted for first-de-
gree murder on September 26. Brandon Javar
Williams is accused of shooting Terry Donnell
Johnson, Jr., following a fight on November 24,
2006.
According to reports from Madison Police De-
partment and Investigator Ben Ebberson, John-
son, 23, and Williams were involved in an alterca-
tion at a party at the Zarm Building on Thursday,
November 23. Witness statements are contradic-
tory over the start of the altercation, however,
Johnson was shot at the southwest corner of
MLK and Baumgartner Streets.
The Zarm Building was a military barracks
that at one point could be rented for parties. Over
the years there have been several murders, stem-


ming from altercations that occurred there.
Ebberson commented that Williams allegedly
shot Johnson at approximately 12:30 a.m. on Fri-
day morning. The bullet entered Johnson's upper
right chest area and came out below, his shoulder
blade. The bullet entered his body a second time,
exiting finally through the meaty part of John-
son's triceps. A 38-caliber snub nose pistol was re-
covered.
Johnson died at Madison County Memorial
Hospital at approximately 3 a.m. as a medical he-
licopter crew was preparing to pick him up.
Johnson was the son of Terry Donnell Johnson,
Sr., and Cheryl White.
Williams was arrested for murder and viola-
tion of probation, and after the indictment was
handed down, faces a jury trial for first-degree
murder while armed.

It's' about relationships, -O dunty

tives, made the water adidw.astewater
infrastructure possible," -Clerk of the
Court Tim Sanders explained. "The
same goes for the construction of SE'
Dale Leslie Drive." --
The business corridor created by
this collaboration is aimed directly at
the challenges that have kept one new.
business proposal after another on the
drawing board. Now, manufacturing,
professional services, and retail,,have a
place to plant their flag. But what's the
price of progress?..
For the water infrastrticture, the
price was $7,903,759. For Dale Leslie
Drive, the price was $1,796,073. To ap,
preciate these numbers in terms of
their true "value" however, a compari-
son can be helpful. The comparison is a
little over simplified, but very useful is
putting "value" in the right perspec-
tive. $7,000,000 for a car immediately
sounds, like a horrible value, whereas
$7,000,000 for an-offshore oilrig might
be an" unbelievable, value. However,
when one finds out later that the car is
made of solid'gold and the oil well is
dry, the value flips completely around.
So when considering value, and cer-
tainly when it pertains to something as
important as the development of a com-
munity, value must be considered in the
bigger picture. In other words, terms
like "cheap" and "expensive, are rela-
tive.

As part of Fire Prevention Month, the
American Red Cross is providing hands-
on safety demonstrations to promote dis-
aster prevention throughout the area.
The large mobiletrailer, known as the
"Weatherhouse," travels among schools
as an ongoing effort to build disaster re-'
sistant neighborhoods.
Jacar McCloud, the Disaster Fire
House Manager from the Capital Area
Chapter of the American Red Cross, pro-


vides the children information and book-
lets on several categories of disasters, in-
cluding fire evacuation.
The real impact comes from the fire
safety drill however, where fake smoke
and smoke alarms are used in a simulat-
ed bedroom fire. Children learn how to
perform a safe window evacuation.
Locally, Freddy Howard, who previous-
ly worked in emergency management in
Madison, will be assisting and periodi-
cally directing the mobile safety pro-
gram.

Semi Collides

With Van


BY JACOB BEMBRY
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A tire blowing out on a semi caused a,
collision with a Chrysler van on Thurs-
day, October 4, at approximately 5:35 p.m.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol
report, Aaron S. Greenwood, 27, of Troy,
Ala., was traveling westbound in a 2000
Peterbilt semi in the left inside lane.
Jorge R. Vasquez, 30, of Orlando, was
traveling west in the right outside lane.
The two vehicles were traveling side by
side.
The front right tire of Greenwood's
semi blew out, causing the truck to veer
sharply to the right. The semi traveled
into the right outside lane, causing the
right front of the semi to collide into the
left side of Vasquez's 2007 Chrysler van.
The semi traveled onto the right paved
shoulder and came to a final rest, point-
ing in a westerly direction.,
Vasquez rotated in a counterclockwise
direction and came to a final rest in the
right outside lane, pointing in a south-
easterly direction, causing the roadway
to be blocked.
After the semi driven by Greenwood
came to a final rest, it caught fire and
burned the tractor portion.
No one was injured in the wreck.
Members of the Greenville Volunteer
Fire Department responded and extin-
guished the fire from the semi.
Units from the Madison County Sher-
iff's Office and Madison Fire and Rescue
also assisted at the scene.
FHP Trooper Berry Crews was the in-
vestigating officer.

\ The Newspaper World

A Part Of Our Lives,

And Your Lives
It has often been said that a day, or week, without a
newspaper is like a day without your morning coffee, and
much, much more of a loss!
This is National Newspaper Week, and it gives us a
chance to reflect on our industry, and makes us think about
how we are serving our readers today.
There was a time when journalism mainly meant news-
papers; when every town or village seemed to have a daily
or a weekly reporting of the deaths, the births, the disas-
ters and the achievements of the world. Today, journalism
encompasses so much more, including other media infor-
mation available. But the role of the weekly newspaper is
still the most important there is. More than 1,450 dailies
and more than 7,600 weeklies put the news, we depend on,
in readers' hands.
The Husband and I started our journalist venture way
back on Aug. 5, 1964, when we opened our first newspaper,
The Madison County Carrier, in Madison. We were young,
(a mere 24-years old). and had no idea what we were doing,
but because we worked hard, surrounded ourselves with
good people who knew what to do, and loved the news busi-
ness from the get-go, we have survived in a business that
many people do not survive in. We climbed our way up into
the State and National Newspaper Associations, and trav-
eled throughout this great country as goodwill ambas-
sadors for the newspaper industry
Publishing newspapers has been our lives, and we have
watched our children "grow up" in the business. We have
met some of the most incredible people throughout our 42
years in Madison County taking pictures, writing stories,
covering church events, school events, weddings, engage-
ments, and features of all kinds. As we look back over past
issues of the Carrier, (and the other four newspapers we
have owned through the years: the Enterprise-Recorder, the
Mayo Free Press, the Branford News, and the White Springs
Leader, we wonder, "Where have the years gone?" We have
simply been "having fun," and it all of a sudden became a
significant part of our lives.
Please join us as we say, "Happy Birthday" to ourselves,
and as we urge you to continue to bring us your news and
stories, ads and pictures. We hope to continue to serve you
to the best of our abilities for many, many, more years. We
Love You!!!!

RESPECT THE LIVING!


One of the saddest times
in any one of our lives is
when we lose a loved one, to
death. This past week,
Judy Haire lost her mother,
Mrs. Leola Sapp.
I, along with my other
Eastern Star sisters and
brothers, had the honor to
provide an Eastern Star fu-
neral service for Mrs. Sapp.
And again I say, "An honor."
So many things, during
funerals, are done out of re-
spect for the deceased. I be-
lieve we do, in fact, owe re-
spect to those that have
passed on, but more impor-
tantly, we should be show-
ing our respect for the fam-
ily. For it's the family that
feels the loss. It's the fami-
ly that feels the pain. It's
the surviving family that
needs our love and prayers.
Participating in the fu-
neral was indeed showing
respect to Mrs. Sapp for her
many years of dedication to
the Order of the Eastern
Star. But to me, I also want-
ed to show respect to Judy,
and her family, for it was
she that requested the cere-
mony It is the memory of
the service, to Judy, that I
find the most important.
One of the best ways to
show respect (to the living)
is by pulling your car over
during a funeral proces-
sion. Again, you may think
that you are showing your
respect to the deceased, but
I feel that the respect is ac-
tually shown to the living.
The deceased does not
know if you have pulled
your car over, or not. It's
the family that rides behind
that hearse that sees the
stopped cars and feels the
respect (or disrespect if you
continue to drive.)
In today's world and hec-
tic life-style, we may feel too
busy to stop for three min-
utes. How sad that is. Just
to pull over means so much,
to so few. That's what
brotherly love is supposed
to be about. To all of you
who continue to dri-
ve......one day you will be
riding behind a hearse and
you WILL notice which cars
stop and which cars do not.
I would like to give kudos
to the police officers at this
time also. To see a police of-
ficer at a traffic light stop-
ping traffic shows that he is
doing his job. To see .him
standing at attention or "re-
laxed attention" means re-
spect. I also'believe that if
the officer has a hat, he
should either leave it in the
car, or have it placed over
his heart, not on his head.


The place I do feel that
respect is shown to the
dead is in the graveyard.
The fact that we should
not walk on graves is in
fact respectful to those that
are buried there. I'm sad to
say that I think this is one
of the many respectful at-
tributes that is not being
taught to the young people
of today
I can never attend a fu-
neral that I don't go back
into memory lane to one of
the most precious memo-
ries that I have.....
On April 1, 1998, my
Grandmother Greene (Cora
Lee Hartsfield Greene)
passed away We had her fu-
neral on April 3. My two
daughters, Cheltsie and
Brooke, were then five-
years-old and three-years-
old. They both had attended
the viewing, but after much
thought we had left them at
school for the funeral itself.
(Cheltsie was too emotional
and Brooke was just too
young to understand and be
still.)


So, a week later, Paul and
I set off to the grave yard to
.clean the flowers off the
grave. Cheltsie and Brooke
wanted to go. On the way
there the questions began.
"What's a grave yard?"
"Why do you get buried
there?" "Why is Me-Mee
there?" "I thought she was
in heaven, not the grave
yard!"
Then we pulled into the
cemetery and pulled up to
Me-Mee's plot. The girls
jumped out and began run-
ning around and playing
(just as children do.) In the
process, however, they be-
gan to run onto some
graves, so I pulled them
over and began explaining
that someone was buried
down there and they should
never walk on top of
graves.
While explaining this
several times (as you some-
times have to do with chil-
dren), Cheltsie really began
putting two-and-two togeth-
er and asked where Me-Mee,
was buried. I turned


around and pointed to her
grave.
The mood turned really
somber at that time. The
two girls walked over to Me-
Mee's grave and just stood
there staring down at the
dirt.
Five-year-old Cheltsie
asked, "Me-Mee's down
there?"
"Yes," I said.
Thinking.
"Me-Mee's down there
right now?" she asked
again.
"Yes" I said.
Silence.
Little three-year-old
Brooke then squatted on all
fours and YELLED, "Me-
Mee, can you hear me?"
No answer.
So, she got louder. "Me-
Mee can you hear me?"
I didn't know whether to
laugh or cry I looked up
and Paul was watching me.
I guess he was wondering if
I was going to laugh or cry,
too.
The four of us still laugh
at that story to this day I
really wish I could have had
a video of that moment -
for I feel sure I could have
won $100,000 on Funniest
Home Videos.
So, I'm not really sure
what the moral to this story
is.... Except life is short- be
respectful to one another,
and teach your children to
be respectful also. We
should all have Respect
for God, respect for, our
country, respect for our-
selves; and respect for each
other.

uber-liberal George Soros to target conser-

marks as denigrating all Iraq war veterans
who oppose the Bush Administration poli-
cies and alerted their accomplices in the
main stream media. Before the week was
out, Democrats in both the House and Sen-
ate were expressing their outrage, calling
Rush unpatriotic and demanding their
pound of flesh
I've gone back to Rush's broadcast and
listened to what heihad to say and the con-
text of his statement. Rush was talking
about a single veteran by the name of Jesse
Macbeth. Jesse turned up in 2004 claiming
to be an Iraqi war veteran, corporal, Army
ranger, and Purple Heart recipient. He also
said he was witness to horrible atrocities
committed by our troops which made him a
hero to the anti-war Left. These groups
trumpeted Jesse and soon he was being reg-
ularly quoted, not only in this country, but
on Islamic websites as well. Jesse's testi-
mony fit the bill of those who want to be-
lieve that America is evil.
Apparently, Jesse repeated his story so
often that he began to believe it, so he ap-
plied to the VA for veterans benefits. Now
the VA is a pretty big bureaucracy, but they
do check these things out, and Jesse Mac-
beth's story began to unravel quickly. It
turns out that young Jesse's military ca-
reer consisted of 44 days he was
drummed out of basic training as unfit to
serve. No war veteran; no Ranger; no pur-
ple heart; no atrocities. Sounds like a pho-
ny soldier to me.

You probably don't know
that one hour of Rush's na-

broadcast is broadcast on
Armed Forces Radio. De-
mocrats are trying to get
that program pulled. I hear
that Rush's broadcast is
very popular. I imagine if
they were given an opportu-
nity to vote, the troops
would overwhelmingly sup-
port Rush and ask for more
programming hours, not
less.
One more thing I might
suggest that anyone who re-
ceives a press release from
Media Matters check out
the original source material
before parroting their line.
After all, they aren't exact-
ly an unbiased source.

fect. The new law substantially; Increases the penalties for
various types of cybercrime and creates a new, separate
criminal charge against predators who communicate on-
line with a child or someone they believe to be a child and
then travel to meet that person for the specific purpose of
further sexually abusing him or her.
Individuals who cross county lines to meet their intend-
ed victims are often prosecuted by attorneys with the At-
torney General's Office of Statewide Prosecution in coor-
dination with the CyberCrime Unit.
"We are well aware of how dangerous internet child
predators are and the level of risks facing our children on-
line, and we are fighting backfull force with every tool
available to us," said Attorney General McCollum. "We are
sending a very clear message to these predators no mat-
ter who you are or what you do, if you solicit a child, touch
a child, or download a pornographic image of a child we
will find you, we will prosecute you, and we will put you be-
hind bars where you belong."
In addition to enhancing penalties for child predators
who groom their victims online, the law includes new
penalties for'"grooming," a behavior which occurs when
internet child predators lie about their age to entice their
victims. Florida is currently the only state in the nation
with a law specifically targeting grooming.
Another important aspect of the law is the substantially
increased penalties for collectors of child pornography
who have more than 10 images of child pornography and
either possess or promote child pornography that contains
images of children under the age of five, sexual battery of
a child, sadomasochistic abuse of a child, bestiality involv-
ing. a child or any pornographic video or live movie of a
child. For possession of these images, the charge is reclas-
sified as a second-degree felony, increasing the maximum
penalty from five years in prison to 15 years in prison. For
promotion and distribution of these images, the charge is
reclassified as a first-degree felony, increasing the maxi-
mum penalty from 15 years in prison to 30 years in prison.
The increased penalties for the possession and produc-
tion of child pornography will be particularly essential in
Florida which ranks fourth in the nation for volume of

child pornography on computers, including the use of we-
bcams, chat rooms and video all for the purpose of sexu-
ally exploiting children. Likewise, the new crimes of trav-
eling and grooming address a similarly chilling statistic re-
garding the number of children sexually solicited over the
internet. According to the National Center for Missing and
Exploited Children, 77 million children use the. internet
daily and nationally, one in seven children in America be-
tween the ages of ten and 17 are sexually solicited online.
As of today, Florida now has some of the strongest laws
in America against child pornography and internet solici-
tation of children. The law has been heralded by law en-
forcement and prosecutors who agree the new provisions
will bolster their efforts in the fight against child pornog-
raphy and the internet solicitation of children.
In addition to the new criminal charges and enhanced
penalties, the CyberCrimes Against Children Act of 2007
will require registered sex offenders in the state of Florida
to submit their email addresses and internet screen names
to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).
This information will be included on the state's sex offend-
er registry and made available to popular social network-
ing sites such as MySpace and Facebook. Authorities em-
phasize the importance of educating children about the po-
tential dangers online and encouraged them to use the in-
ternet wisely, pointing out that befriending a predator on-
line is just as dangerous as talking to him or her in person.

Man Arrested For Battery
By Jessica Higginbotham --- -
Greene Publishing, Inc.
According to the Madison Po- E
lice Department, on October 4,
Vinson Allen was arrested for o -
domestic battery and possession |
of drug paraphernalia. 7
On October 4, MPD received a
complaint that Allen had choked
a woman and thrown her into
the bushes. When officer Tiffany Vinson Allen
Travis arrived on the scene, the
victim informed her that Allen was no longer there.
Contact was made with Allen, who was irate and aggres-
sive. During a search conducted by Sergeant Chris Cooks,
a crack pipe was found in the front right pocket of Allen's
jeans. Allen was arrested and transported to. the county
jail.

Woman Arrested For Driving

With Cancelled License

By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing Inc.
According to the Madison Po- -
lice Department, Pamela Diane
Barclay was arrested on October -
5. The Greenville woman was .
seen driving in a black Kia
Sephia on Range Street by Pa-
trolman Joseph Agner.

Agner stated in a report that
he had prior knowledge that bar-
clay's license was cancelled, so
he conducted a traffic stop. Pamela Diane Barclay
When asked if she knew her license was not valid, Bar-
clay responded that she was in fact aware. Agner arrested
her, and transported Barclay to the Madison County Jail:
A cancelled license cannot be reinstated like a suspend-
ed license. Typically, after a fourth DUI offense or other se-
rious offense, the license is permanently revoked, or can-
celled.


Broward Woman


Sentenced To Prison


For Insurance Fraud


A Broward woman convicted of conspiring to com-
mit insurance fraud and grand theft was sentenced to 18
months in prison followed by 10 years probation, Attor-
ney General Bill McCollum today announced. Tamara
Taylor was found guilty for her participation in a staged
accident ring that defrauded three major insurance
companies of more than $100,000. In addition to her par-
ticipation in the insurance fraud, Taylor was also ac-
cused of fabricating evidence in the case to avoid sen-
tencing. She and her co-conspirators were prosecuted by
the Attorney General's Office of Statewide Prosecution.
"Not only did this group of people put themselves in
harm's way to fraudulently collect from insurance com-
panies, this woman tried to cheat her way out of trouble
by accusing her mother of wrongdoing. This is a partic-
ularly deplorable situation, one we are glad to see re-
solved with justice," said Attorney General McCollum.
According to authorities, the insurance scam in
which Taylor was involved faked numerous automobile
accidents to collect claims money Conspirators would
either run their vehicles into stationary objects or
would stage a collision between two vehicles and report
the resulting injuries. Claims were then made to the in-
surance companies under their Personal Injury Protec-
tion coverage. State Farm Insurance, Allstate Insurance
and Geico Insurance were targeted by the scam. Taylor
and seven co-conspirators were arrested in 2005.
A Broward County jury convicted Taylor in May on
charges of conspiracy to commit organized fraud and
second-degree grand theft. Days before a previously
scheduled sentencing trial, the Attorney General's Citi-
zen Services Division received an anonymous letter,
claiming Taylor had been falsely accused and that Tay-
lor's mother was responsible for the charges. When the
letter was received in Tallahassee, the Office of
Statewide Prosecution was alerted and through the De-
partment of Insurance Fraud was able to obtain video
footage of Taylor faxing the letter from a South Florida
convenience store. The evidence was taken into account
at the sentencing hearing.
Sentencing was handed down by Judge Peter Wein-

Steam the asparagus as
you normally would. Take it
out while the asparagus is still on the ci-nchy side.
Lay the asparagus in a nice, neat row in the middle
of a cookie sheet, from one end to the other.
Take approximately 3 tbsp. of mayonaisseN and
spread it across the center of the asparagus, creating a
wide layer of mayo with green asparagus showing
about an inch or more on either side of the mayo.
Pre-heat oven to 3500. Sprinkle the mayo with a lib-

parmesan browns or is a little cruchy and ENJOY!
BE CAREFUL, the parmesan cheese will brown
quickly, so keep an eye on it.

This is a dish that my friend Kitra Weaver taught

rave reviews. I've NEVERhad any leftovers.

(850)


948-2251


It's time for Fire Prevention Week, and from October
7-13 Madison County Fire Departments are joining
forces with the nonprofit National Fire Protection
Association (NFPA) to remind local residents to Prevent
Cooking Fires: "Watch What You Heat." During this
year's fire safety campaign, firefighters and safety advo-
cates will be spreading the word about the dangers of
cooking fires-most of which result from unattended
cooking-and teaching local residents how to prevent
cooking fires from starting in the first place.
According to the latest NFPA research, cooking is the
leadiig cause.of home fires. OnLout of thre4lome fires
begins in t1W fhein-more than any otlier fil ie in the'
home. Cooking fires are also the leading cause of home
fire-related injuries.
"Often when we're called to a fire that started in the
kitchen, the residents tell us that they only left the
kitchen for a few minutes," said Archie Strickland, Fire
Prevention Officer. "Sadly, that's all it takes for a dan-
gerous fire to start. We hope that Fire Prevention Week
will help us reach folks in the community before they've
suffered a damaging lesson."
Among the safety tips that firefighters and safety
advocates will be emphasizing:
Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling,
broiling, or boiling food.
If you must leave the room, even for a short period of
time, turn off the stove.
* When you are simmering, baking, or roasting food,
check it regularly, stay in the home, and use a timer to
remind you.
If you have young children, use the stove's back burn-
ers whenever possible. Keep children and pets at least
three away from the stove.
When. you cook, wear clothing with tight-fitting
sleeves.
Keep potholders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper
and plastic bags, towels, and anything else that can
burn, away from your stovetop.
Clean up food and grease from burners and stovetops.
Fire Prevention Week is actively supported by fire
departments across the country This is the 85th year
that fire departments have observed Fire Prevention
Week, making it the longest running public health and
safety observance on record.

Agriculture and Second Harvest (food bank) of the Big
Bend, Tallahassee, CCM will now be served by Lutheran
Social Services Second-Harvest Food Bank of Northeast
Florida out of Jacksonville. Only one delivery per month
will come from this location. In the past weekly deliveries
were received out of Tallahassee.
The amount of groceries received from Tallahassee
Second Harvest have been getting less and less. It is un-
certain at this time how these changes will further affect
the ministry at CCM. At this time there is a severe short-
age of food for distribution from CCM. With Thanksgiv-
ing and Christmas right around the corner, it is impera-
tive that the supply of food be replenished or there will
not be enough for the needy during the holidays.
Curves of Madison County has agreed to have another
food drive to increase the food supply for CCM in time for
the holidays. Last March, Curves collected almost 1.100
pounds of groceries for CCM. This year Curves is hoping
to collect even more food for this community
From October 1st through November 21st new mem-
bers who wish to join Curves may do so by donating 10
pounds of groceries and Curves will waive the service
fee. Current members are encouraged to donate canned
goods by participating in the first "Thanksgiving Food
Drive Contest". The winners of this contest will win valu-
able prizes, including free t shirts. If interested in joining
Curves with this food drive promotion, it is recommend-
ed that you call for an appointment at 973-4700.Any mem-
ber of the community can also donate their canned goods
and non perishable foods to Curves from Monday, October
1st through Wednesday, November 21st. Club hours at
Curves are Monday through Friday from 8 am until 7 pm
and Saturday from 8 am until Noon. You may call 973-4700
for further information.
The community can also donate their canned goods
and non perishable foods directly to CCM, which is locat-
ed next to the Madison County Jail on Pinckney Street.
The hours of operation at CCM are Tuesdays and Thurs-
days from 9 am until 12:30 pm; Wednesdays from 9 am un-
til 2:30 pm; and Fridays from 9 am until 12 noon. For fur-
ther information you may call 973-6208.

By Michael Curtis

After opening the meet-
ing, Madison Rotary Club
President Morris Steen con-
gratulated all in attendance
for the huge success of their
recent fundraising dinner.
Raising over $4700, the
annual Prime Rib Dinner
was held on Thursday, Sep-
tember 27 at the Madison
Elks Club.
The current fundraising
efforts include a raffle spon-
sored by Madison Sporting
Goods. At the October 17
club meeting, a drawing
will be held where the win-
ner can choose from a Rem-
ington 715 rifle, a Reming-
ton 570 shotgun or a $300
gift certificate. Tickets are
one dollar each.
Guest speaker Lori New-
ton was introduced next.
Newton is the drafting in-
structor at North Florida


Community. College. She
spoke about the architectur-
al and mechanical certifi-
cates offered through the
college and the expanding
role the college is playing in
this field.
Newton, 28, moved her
family back to Madison to
take the position at the col-
lege at the request of her
drafting instructor Bobby
Harper. Both Newton and
Harper also conduct private
work under the professional
association Coastal Re-
sources in Perry
"Although the curricu-
lum includes extensive in-
struction on leading edge,
drafting and. design soft-
ware like AutoCAD," New-
ton noted, "When a student
comes into our program, we
will work closely with him


or her to make sure they a'c-
quire both the skills and the
real-world exposure needed,
for the type of work they
plan to perform."
Newton went on to say,
"We participate in the dual-
enrollment program with
local secondary schools., We
also have guest instructors
and speakers from colleges,
including FSU, and we will
advise students pursuing
their AA degree on what is
required to get into univer-
sity architectural and engi-
neering programs.
Rotary was founded on
the simple and effective


principle that business and
civic leaders should periodi-
cally gather to -exchange
ideas. As members "rotate"
from business to business,
members are given the op. :
portunity .to expand the
"who you know"' element of
business;-in order to create
opportunities and address .

structure and the five-mile business corri-
dor in terms of the passions and expecta-
tions of those who worked hard to make it a
reality, the value is huge. Considering no
additional public funding was required and
that the money came from the same source
that built the jail and expanded ambulance
services, officials should be commended for
their timely and effective use of financial
resources.
But it's not the efficient way the project
was built or bought that's most impressive
however. It's not even the $1,517,992 FDOT
grant that covered most of the construction
cost of SE Dale Leslie Drive. The most im-
pressive value is the future value.
To grow a community, greater value
must be created. It's a law like gravity
When a new person comes to a community
and begins searching for a job, value isn't
increased. In fact, unless the incoming res-
ident lays out some new cash, that means
investment above and beyond housing, it
doesn't grow the city at all. Instead this is
just one more person feeding at the same
table. The money in the community is now
split between more people.
The same backwards progress happens
when a new business comes into the com-
munity to mostly do business with locals.
In this instance, money and jobs are just
shifted between existing businesses. Stag-
nation certainly isn't progress either.
Real progress and real increased value
are only possible if new residents, existing
businesses and especially new businesses,
bring in new money And that's exactly
what the infrastructure is designed to ac-


cont from page 1A


complish.
So while the debate about the future val-
ue of the project may continue as the
process materializes, it's absolutely certain
that without the project, no significant
progress would be possible and no value
could be created. The fact that the business
corridor doesn't disturb our "at-home
lifestyles" is icing on the cake.
Often progress is discussed too impul-
sively, using examples like Wal-Mart ruin-
ing hometowns, or jobs being lost to cheap
foreign labor. Between these extremes
there are millions, potentially even billions,
of dollars of local commerce representing a
measurable win-win for all concerned.
Existing business owners and the first
families of Madison, the cornerstone of
our communities, have opportunities to ex-
pand and be the first to market with new
projects without forfeiting the community
comforts they work so hard to protect. New
money can now flow in without hurting
those same business owners.
But the greatest value is indisputably the
value created for the children and lifting
the economically disadvantaged. Our chil-
dren will have a real opportunity to stay
home,, not where staying home means liv-
ing on grandpa's charity and sometimes
even in grandpa's house. Instead, this
"staying home" is in pursuit of his or her
own professional and entrepreneurial
choices.
So, progress, like value, must be consid-
ered in the big picture, where those that
come first, and those that come last can
both have a seat at the table.

.evs&r Time Is Greatest Ally Of




"Generation Y"


If you're a member of "Generation Y" generally
defined as those between the ages of 18 and 25 -
you're probably thinking of many things: going to
school, working at your first "g'-own-up" job, find-
ing a good apartment, hanging out with friends.
listening to your favorite bands and so: on. But
here's something else youi should think about.
\saving and investing or :your future. As you
work to reach your financial goals, you've got a
great asset o'inl for you: time,


S --- Ia .W y vou have more
Smoney available
---- to invest.

- ........ -- Brae
_o .. -~ I


You've got time to invest for growth. Many of your peers
are investing too conservatively. The average "Gen Y"
worker participating in a 401(k) plan is putting about 35
cents of every dollar into accounts containing bonds and
other fixed-income securities, according to a survey con-
ducted by Hewitt Associates, an employee benefits consult-
ing firm. That means Generation Y members are investing
more conservatively than their baby boomer parents, who
only put in about 31 cents of every dollar into these fixed-
income vehicles.
Since you have so many decades to go until retirement,
you need to consider investing for growth and that may
mean purchasing stocks, because stocks have historically
given the greatest opportunity for long-term returns. Of
course, as we've seen quite dramatically in recent months,
stocks can go down as well as up, and there's no guarantee
you won't lose some or all of your initial investment. But,
more than any other demographic group, you have time to
potentially overcome short-term price fluctuations. So,
both in and out of your 401(k), you should consider some
exposure to quality stocks.
You've got time to establish appropriate financial strate-
gies. As you move through your adult life, you'll have many
financial goals, such as buying a home, saving for college
for your children and building resources for a comfortable
retirement. To achieve these objectives, you'll need to em-
ploy a variety of saving and investment strategies. Given
your stage of life, you have time to carefully plan out these
strategies to be as effective as possible.
You've got time to get the help you need. To improve your
chances of meeting your long-term goals, you may want to
work with a professional financial advisor someone who
will take the time to understand your needs, preferences
and risk tolerance.
As a member of Generation Y, you've got a lot of hopes
and dreams, and you've got time to achieve them especial-
ly when you learn good financial and investment skills.

1 "Just Write A Check" For It

Submitted by Deidra McRory Newman
Business Development Officer
Madison County Community Bank
How many times have you heard your child say "Just write a check for it"
when you told them that you don't have the money for the "have to have" item
of the day'
The financial stability of our community's future depends on our children
having a firm grasp on financial skills and money management. Parents,
CorrmmLn ity, Schools, we must start now to ensure our community's future.
SA re your kids prepared for the reality of adulthood? Can your child bal-
ance a checkbook? Create a simple budget?
,. Consistentliv save money? Set specific goals for their future lifestyle? Cal-
late a basic loan payment? Locate a college and find the costs of tuition?
\ Children, as well as adults, need to learn the uses and values of money,
S* S along wv ith the responsibility that comes with it.
By the time teenager's graduate from high school, we expect them to
be ready to handle their finances. We hope they have all the knowledge
needed to use money wisely, yet reaching adulthood with the insight and
incen t iv'e to be a good money manager does not just happen, it must be
learned.
It is never too early to start. It takes a commitment on the part of
a parents to raise their children with the knowledge, skills and motiva-
St ion to maintain control of their financial resources.
--. -.---- Here are a few tips to assist you in raising money-smart kids:
Allowance: Your child needs hands on practice with money When
the money is gone, the money is gone.
Ba .,, Understanding Needs: Demonstrate the difference between
Visn 31340 wants and needs. Your children will model your behavior and if
ASOb t .o ,ottr first responsibility is to provide for the family's needs they will
i make that their priority as well.
Th Budget: Encourage your children to participate in the family bud-
get. They c"an set up their own budget and cover certain expenses such as lunches,
recreation and clothes.
Shop: Most kids clov- to shop Involve them in comparison shopping. Perhaps explain to them that
the family i acat iun ,or that rnew bike they have been wanting is possible now because of the money you
sa\ t-Il.
Savmin: One- of the motst valuable lessons your child will learn is saving. Show your children that
v\.ui a e pitt ing mo'-'e\, back and \% hv so that they will model your behavior and better understand the
bipact of sa. Ing


Never before have there been so many opportunities
for pursuing your financial goals. In today's fast-
paced world, time is a scarce commodity. It's time, in-
formation and experience make the difference in
choosing the right financial opportunities for your
future. Let us assist vou with your investment needs.
Call Sterve Schrainin to schedule your appointment.


.id L~nii rn .llcrcd throirgh


Allow Mistakes: Children learn from their mistakes.
Although it's tough to see children waste money, it may
not be wasted if they learn a lesson from having made a
poor decision.
Income and Outgo: Discuss where your money comes
from and how it goes out of the household. Explain to
them where your hard earned money goes.
ATM's aren't Magic and neither are checks or debit
cards. Going to the "money machine" only works if the
money is in the bank account. Checks, Debit cards and
Credit cards work the same way If the money isn't there,
you shouldn't spend it.
Set a good example. Children take their money cues
from their parents. If you earn, spend and save wisely,
your children are more likely to be "money smart" also.
Rewards: Use praise as rewards, not money
Give the gift of financial freedom. Start now with pa-
tience, practice, and praise.
Encourage your school to take part in the educational
programs for children of all ages, teens, adults and se-
niors offered by your local community bank.

The Florida Department Of


Health Recognizes October As
1 1 .^>^<^ ^^ .-*^t^ **T BJB.- ^q ~ - / -


breast Cancer Awarei
TALLAHASSEE
The Florida Department of Health (DOH) recognizes Oc-
tober as Breast Cancer Awareness Month and encourages
women to learn their personal risk and report any breast
changes promptly to their doctor.
"Mammography can usually detect breast cancer at its
earliest, most treatable stage, long before a lump can be
felt," State Surgeon General Ana M. Viamonte Ros, M.D.,
M.RH. said. "Women with a high risk of breast cancer
should talk to their health care provider to learn how often
they should get a mammogram and clinical breast exam."
All women, beginning in their 20s, should have a clinical
breast exam as part of their regular annual physical. Ac-
cording to the U.S. Preventive Task Force, women age 40
and older should have a mammogram and clinical breast
exam every one to two years. Additionally, women should
talk to a doctor to learni how to perform breast self exams.
A rare gene increases some families' risk of breast can-
cer, but being female and aging are the greatest risk fac-
tors. According to the National Cancer Institute, other
risks include personal history of breast cancer, certain
breast changes, genetics, hormone use, late childbearing or
not having children. Some studies have shown a connec-
tion between increased alcohol'consumption and increased
breast cancer risk. Being overweight after menopause has
been discussed in studies as increasing risk. However,
since 1981, the age-adjusted breast cancer mortality rate in
Florida decreased by 26 percent among white women and
10 percent among black women.
Symptoms indicating breast cancer may include:
Lump or thickening in or near the breast or
underarm area
Change in the size or shape of the breast
Nipple discharge (other than milk)
Inward-turning nipple
Change in the color or texture of the skin on or near
the breast or underarm area
DOH's Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Pro-
gram assists uninsured or underinsured women in Flori-
da, ages 50-64, who are at or below the poverty level. Six-
teen primary sites with partnerships in other counties are
available. To locate the nearest site, call the toll free hot-
line number at 1-800-451-2229.
On October 15, DOH's Women's Health Team and Office
of Minority Health will promote breast cancer awareness
at the "It's a Pink Affair" Breast Health Fair. The event
takes place from 8 a.m. 12:00 noon, and from 2 -5 p.m. at
Bond Community Health Center, located at 872 W Orange
Ave., Tallahassee, FL 32310. Mammography vouchers and
pink awareness ribbons will be distributed, along with
breast health information and Mary Kay products. The
breast health fair will also include a cooking demonstra-
tion featuring cancer-preventing foods.
At 11 a.m., the breast cancer awareness press conference
starts at Bond. Tamara Demko, J.D., Florida's Officer of
Women's Health Strategy and DOH Asst. Deputy Secretary
for Health, along with representatives from the American

Saving Lives of Florida Residents Who
Develop Skin Cancer Each Year:
The Key Is Early Detection And Treatment
Tallahassee Dermatologist Encourages Regular Skin Examinations
Once every two hours a Florida resident is diagnosed with
a new case of melanoma skin cancer, according to the Amer-
ican Cancer Society A local dermatologist is working to de-
crease this alarming statistic, and increase the likelihood
that local residents diagnosed with this deadliest type of skin
cancer will survive.
"Staying out of the sun or protecting your skin from
harmful ultraviolet rays is the best defense against skin can-
cer, but it's equally important to have your skin examined at
least once a year by a board-certified dermatologist, especial-
ly if you have any moles that are irregular in shape or have
recently appeared or changed in size, shape or color," said Dr.
Armand Cognetta, medical co-director of the nationwide tri-
al of Dermatology Associates of Tallahassee. "Early detec-
tion of suspicious moles is the key to preventing melanoma."
When melanoma is caught in its early stages, it's almost
always curable.
Risk factors for melanoma include:
Sunlight, or too much exposure to ultraviolet radiation
Presence of many moles and/or large moles (>6mm)
Fair skin, freckling, light eyes, or natural red or blond
hair
- Family history of melanoma
Past personal history of melanoma
Traditionally, dermatologists have relied on their own
eyes and judgment in deciding whether to remove a suspi-
cious mole.
Dermatology Associates of Tallahassee is participating in
a nationwide patient trial to test an investigational medical
technology called MelaFind, designed to assist physicians in
the early diagnosis of melanoma.
MelaFind is a non-invasive hand-held imaging device that
emits light of multiple wavelengths to capture images of sus-
picious pigmented skin lesions (moles). MelaFind then ana-
lyzes the images in order to provide information to the physi-
cian and produce a recommendation of whether the lesion
should be biopsied.
"We encourage patients to come in for skin exams in gen-
eral, especially during the summer months when people tend
to spend a lot of time outdoors in the sun," said Dr. Cognetta.
If you think you have a mole that may be cancerous, and
would like to have it examined, please contact Dermatology
Associates of Tallahassee at 850-877-4134. You may also be el-


igible to participate in the MelaFind trial.


Cancer Society and Tallahassee MIemo6itHospl 's
Breast Health Center, will discuss how breast cancer in-
pacts women of color at disproportionate rates.
DOH promotes and protects the health and safety of all
people in Florida through the delivery of quality public
health services and the promotion of health care stan-
dards. For more information about DOH's Breast and Cer-
vical Cancer Early Detection Program, visit

SCHOOL & EDUCATION



There's More To Johnny Appleseed Than Just Apples


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madisonians may recognize Tim Sanders as the
Clerk of Court; however, younger Madisonians may rec-
ognize him as the infamous Johnny Chapman, also
known as Johnny Appleseed.
For 13 years (possibly more.) Sanders has been tour-
ing the younger grades at area schools sharing the mes-
sage of hope that Johnny Appleseed shared with
settlers.
On September 27,
Sanders visited New Testa-
ment Christian School to
share Johnny's story with
the students there. Prompt-
ly at nine a.m., Sanders .
walked into the chapel at '
New Testament, carrying a -
sack of apples, wearing tat-
tered overalls, no shoes, and a
tin pot for a hat Johnny Ap- -
pleseed's regalia.
Johnny was born on- Sep-
tember 26, 1774 in Leominster.
Massachusetts, to parents
Nathaniel Chapman and Eliza-
beth (ne6 Simonds). During his l
life, it was remarked that John-
ny was an odd character. He
came from a family of little
means, but always wanted to tray-
el to the west. -#
When Johnny was old enough,
Sanders tells, he left home and
traveled, finally settling in Ohio.
There, Johnny would tell stories, saJ
deliver news from back home, and Tim SandersaseJ
share his "news fresh from heav- September 27. A
en." Johnny acted sort of like a
missionary, reading bible stories to the traveling fami-
lies that he'd opened up his home to.
Johnny made friends with the settlers and Indians
alike, taking care of the animals that he met along the
way. Johnny needed no knife or rifle.
Johnny traveled through the woods much like the
Indians did, which eventually earned him their friend-
ship. Once, when Johnny was walking through the
woods, he came across a young Indian boy who was
weak with fever. Johnny, who.knew much about plants,
made the boy a medicine that healed him. The boy took
him back to his village, where eventually Johnny was ac-
cepted. He became known as a bit of a medicine man and
an Indian's friend.
Once in Pittsburg, Sanders continued, Johnny ran out
of apple seeds. In the winter, he went and collected all of
the apple mash from the cider mill and picked the seeds to
give to the travelers across the Ohio River.
As the travelers passed through, Johnny would give
them little packets of apple seeds to plant, earning him the
nickname JohnnyAppleseed. Finally Johnny decided that
he wasn't made to settle down, and picked up his seeds and
began to travel once again.
Johnny Appleseed roamed the forests headed west for


40 years. He lived in the open and visited families, sharing
apple seeds and his news from Heaven. Johnny felt that ap-
ples were gifts from heaven.
Johnny believed that it was a sin to hurt any living thing.
He lived his life in accordance with the animals. When John-
ny was traveling one winter he located a large, hollow log
that %would be ideal to bed down for
the night 0l


told the people that there wasn't nearly enough room for
everyone. He asked for someone to volunteer to go get help
from Mount Vernon, 30 miles away
After a silence, Johnny stepped out from the crowd, say-
ing, "I will go." The settlers and captain
all pleaded with Johnny not to go out
again: he'd been running around already
Johnny replied that he knew the way and
he knew the Indians wouldn't hurt him.
Johnny ran the 30 miles to Mount
Vernon, and alerted the soldiers there.
He led the way back to Mansfield, but
left before the soldiers reached the fort.
He didn't want to fight his Indian
brothers and sisters.
Johnny decided to go farther west
into Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan.
He lived out the rest of his life planti-
ng apple trees and sharing seeds with
passers by During the winter of
1845, Johnny was found, curled
around an apple tree keeping it
warm. Johnny Appleseed had died.
Sanders closed his story by
telling students that Johnny Apple-
-- -seed lived and cared. He cared
about apples, animals, and people.
Johnny cared about goodness
.,,- most of all, and he thought that
,. people should take care of each
other"


vfv1 e firstt1m -e on 1lFollowing Sanders' story he

Strike a Balance Between
Saving for Retirement, College
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
If you have young children, you may want them to
attend college someday and you may want to help them
pay for it. At the same time, you also need to save for a
comfortable retirement lifestyle. Are the two goals com-
patible?
There's ,no easy answer to this question. But one
thing seems clear: For many parents, saving and invest-
ing for their children's future is every bit as important -
and maybe more so than saving and investing for their
own. In fact, two-thirds of parents said they would post-
pone retirement if necessary to help pay for their chil-
dren's college education, according to a survey by
Alliance Bernstein Investments, Inc.
Parents have good reason to believe that investing in
a college education will pay off for their children: Over
the course of their lifetimes, college graduates will earn,
on average, about $1 million more than high school grad-
uates, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
So, since a college education appears to be quite
valuable, shouldn't you do everything you can to help
pay for it?
Ultimately, you'll have to weigh your potential col-
lege contributions against your need to save for your own
retirement. On one hand, you'd like to help your children
as much as possible; as a parent, you don't want your
children saddled with enormous debts when they leave
college. But on the other hand, that type of reluctance
may be based more on emotion than on a sound financial
strategy. After all, college graduates seem to find a way
to eventually pay off their loans. Furthermore, your chil-
dren may be able.to find grants, scholarships and work-
study opportunities. Many students can earn a decent,
amount of money at summer jobs, too.
Nonetheless, you still may feel obligated to pay
something toward your children's college education. But
if you're going to help pay for college, be smart about it.
For example, think twice before borrowing from your
401(k). Such a move will slow the growth potential of
your retirement funds and it could prove costly in other
ways, too. For one thing, if you leave your job, voluntar-
ily or involuntarily, you'll need to repay your 401(k) loan
completely, usually within 60 days. If you can't, the bal-
ance will be considered a taxable distribution and you
may even have to pay a 10 percent penalty on it.
Instead of tapping into your 401(k), IRA or other
accounts you've'designated for retirement, look for other
ways to help build your children's college funds. You
might decide to open a Section 529 plan, which offers
tax-free earnings potential, provided the money is used to
pay for higher education costs. You can put whatever you
can afford into a Section 529 plan, along with gifts from
grandparents or -other relatives. Contributions are tax-
deductible in certain states for residents who participate
in their own state's plan. Please note that a 529 College
Savings Plan could reduce a beneficiary's ability to qual-
ify for financial aid. You might also want to consider a
Coverdell Education Savings Account, which offers
another tax-advantaged way to save for college.
As you already know, much of your life involves bal-
ancing acts of one type or another, so you should be able
to handle one more college for your kids against a com-
fortable retirement for you. By making the right moves,
though, you may be able to reach an "equilibrium" that
works for everyone.


his head down.
Immediately Johnny knew something else was in the log
already because when he laid his head down, it hit a soft,
fuzzy pillow A mama bear and baby bear had already
thought of Johnny's idea, and the mama bear roared deeply
Johnny simply replied, "I'm so very sorry" and left to find an-
other place to rest.
Sanders even told the story about Johnny's pet wolf, and
how it was saved. Once, when Johnny was traveling through
the woods, he heard a moaning and howling. He followed the
noise and saw that a wolf was trapped in hunter's steel jaws.
Johnny pried the trap open with his hands and made medi-
cine to heal the wolf's wounds. The wolf, thankful for his
help, never left Johnny's side.
During the War of 1812, Johnny was responsible for sav-
ing the settlers in Mansfield, Ohio. The British had con-
vinced the Indians to go to war against the settlers, and John-
ny who loved both groups, knew that he had to help the set-
tlers. He petitioned the Indians to stop the war, but they went
anyway
Johnny ran through the woods telling people to pick up
and hurry to the Fort at Mansfield. He ran, and ran, and ran,
telling everyone he encountered to get to safety By the time
Johnny reached the fort, the people could see the burning
towns.
The captain of the fort gathered everyone together and


Warm Smiles And Friendly Service For


Students and


Visitors At Middle School
Anderson just started this year following four years in
the military where she Was stationed in Washington D.C.
Like Davis, her smile is contagious, and also like Davis,
both have the affection of the students and respect from
their co-workers.
Both ladies wanted to take this opportunity to ac-
knowledge Lt. Colonel Sam Stalnaker, the Principal of
MCCS, who is currently serving in Afghanistan. The four
Assistant Principals who Davis and Anderson also praised
are performing the Principal duties until Stalnaker re-
turns.

happy to help at MCCS.

If all it took were a smile and a helping hand to have a
great day the students and visitors at Madison County Cen-
tral School would definitely be a happy bunch. This setting
of warmth and friendliness is established the moment you
come through the big double-door entrance as you are greet-
ed by Jessica Anderson and Katherine "Kat" Davis.
Anderson and Davis are far more than receptionists
though. Students, parents and visitors parade by daily with
different demands. The phone rings off the hook. One per-
son goes here, another person goes there, but throughout it
all, warm smiles and friendly service are the one constant.
Davis has been with the school system for 32 years, serv-
ing in her current capacity since the middle school opened
in 2001. Davis has held a variety of positions over those
years, having started as a teacher's aid at Madison Primary

With history approaching the centennial mark, 4-H
is the largest youth organization in America. The mis-
sion of 4-H is to empower youth to reach their full po-
tential, working and learning in partnership with car-
ing adults. This week, October 7 13, is National 4-H
Week! '
"To Make the Best Better" is the 4-H motto. Its intent
is to inspire young people to continue to learn and grow,
to make their best effort better through participating in
educational experiences.
4-H has a four fold goal for youth. The 4-H pledge
says it all, "I Pledge my Head to clearer thinking, my
Heart to greater loyalty, my Hands to larger service,
and my Health to better living for my club, my com-
munity my country and my world."
Community clubs are the foundation of 4-H. A
club is an organized group of five or more youth, ad-
vised by an adult, with a planned program that meets

at least once a month. Being in a 4-H club provides nu-
merous opportunities for youth to learn subject mat-
ter while developing life skills taught by adults and
older youth. Most clubs are involved in some form of
community service throughout the 4-H year.
Members are encouraged to learn and participate
in one or more projects. There are so many projects
for 4-Hers to choose from; to name a few -- aerospace,
computer technology, livestock, animals, theater arts,
shooting sports, food preparation, or work force
preparation. 4-Hers can work on a project individually
or as part of a group. Record books are kept and
turned in at the end of a project year for judging.
Other educational experiences provided by Madi-
son 4-H include school enrichment, special workshops,
day camps and overnight camping at Camp Cherry
Lake during the summer. Tropicana speech- contest
provides the opportunity for public speaking to 4th,
