Robinson Sentenced To Seven Years In Federal Prison For Burglary


O'Neal Kevin Robinson was sen-
tenced to seven years in federal prison
for possession of 15 or more stolen
firearms and his. part in breaking and en-
tering B&GP Enterprises in Madison.
"I personally wanted more time in
federal prison for Robinson," said George
Pulliotte, owner of the business that was
burglarized, "however, the time given
him had already been planned before I
ever got to the courthouse. The federal
prosecutor thought the help received
from Robinson was worth the lighter sen-
tence. The following is what happened:

'It really wasn't Robinson's fault that he
stole those firearms; the blame may be-

had a father figure; he needs anger man-
agement treatment; he's an alcoholic; he


consumes enormous amounts of
drugs;he beats his mother; he can't read,
he can't write and his whole life is a
shamble."
Robinson told the judge he was sorry
for stealing the firearms. He also went on
to request that the judge send him to a
prison close to home, so he can see his
daughter on occasion. He also said he
needed help getting his education, as well
as needed counseling for his abuses.
"The demands went on and on,"
Puliotte said.

The Status of Madison Families Part 1


HUNGRY FOR A SOLUTION
Regional Hunger

120%.

10.0%


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.,
The obvious and natural place for
any journey, or story, to start is at the be-
ginning. And every journey, and story,
no matter the length or difficulty, begins
with the first step. So here is Part 1,
"Hungry For A Solution," The Status'of
Madison Families.
Planning a journey from Madison to
Jacksonville, or from Cape Canaveral to
the Moon for that matter, can be mapped
out exactly. Reporting on the status of
people however, especially on issues like
"quality of life," is not exact, so deter-
mining the best route to improvement is-,
n't either. Furthermore, this inability to
be exact and objective gives room for
opinion, and once that starts, getting
people united for change is much harder,
especially if apathy or bad history al-
ready exists. A challenge to this report
is therefore simply determining its start-


ing point and route.
Historically, the solution to this
dilemma has been expert testimony. As-k
suming there's no significant political or
money bias behind them, receiving in-
formation from specialists is both sensi-
ble and useful. These experts often de-
vote their lives to their respective caus-
es, typically making them uniquely qual-
ified to provide in-depth, accurate, and
inside information otherwise unavail-
able.
Relevant to this series, some very re-
vealing. even alarming, vital county de-
mographics have been provided by the
Healthy Start Coalition of Jefferson,
Madison and Taylor Counties, Inc. Exec-
utive Director, George Hinchliffe, during
a recent presentation to the "55-Plus"
'club, literally brought the numbers and
members to life in a whole new and mov-
ing way.

Halloween Night Event Grows


By Ted Ensminger
Greene Publishing, Inc.
According to Chief
Rick Davis of the Madison
Police Department, plans
are well underway to have
the biggest and most effi-
cient Madison Downtown
Halloween ever.
Originally 'instigated
back in 1997 by now Sgt.
Nathan Curtis, the annual
Halloween event was pre-
sented by the Madison Po-
lice Department as a safe
and exciting alternative to
trick or treating in the


neighborhoods.
In fact, as Chief Davis
states, "Many residents
choose to bring out their
lawn chairs and set up a
booth with the other indi-
' viduals and businesses in-
stead of staying at home
and guessing on the
turnout."
But, if you choose to
give out candy at the an-
nual downtown event,
you'd better come loaded
for bear! It is estimated
that between 2,000 and
3,000 Trick or Treaters


will attend the 11th Annu-
al Madison Downtown
Halloween.
Registration for the
free booths for this year
has increased over previ-
ous years. Chief Davis
says, Last year about 27
booths were set up." And
according to Terry Shef-
buch with the Madison
County Chamber of Com-
merce, "I would not be
surprise to see the num-
ber of booths reach 40 or

Florida's September Unemployment Rate Holds Steady

Madison Unemployment Rate Drops


The unemployment rate for Madison
Courity dropped from 7.1 percent in July
Ato 5.5 percent in September.
Madison County has a labor force of
7,136 people with 6,740 of them em-
ployed. A total of 396 of those in the la-

growth among the ten most populous states, behind
only Texas and California.
In partnership with the education and business com-
munities, the Agency for Workforce Innovation is work-
ing diligently to meet Florida's workforce needs by im-
plementing innovative programs. One such program
creates career and professional education academies
that link the resources of public education to the work-
force needs of businesses to promote a vibrant state
economy The effort to create these academies is led by
Senator Don Gaetz who successfully championed the
Florida Career and Professional Education Act in the
2007 legislative session. Earlier this week, Governor
Crist presented the prestigious national William L.
Heartwell, Jr. Award to Senator Gaetz for his significant
and substantial contributions to the state's workforce
system.
"Senator Gaetz is a valuable asset to the workforce
system," said Director Brown. "His incredible vision,
diligence and drive have transformed Florida's work-
force services and paved the way for the next generation
of skilled workers by recognizing the significant con-
nection between education and a successful workforce."

God's Blessings In Disguise

Unanswered Prayers = Answered Prayers


Garth
Brooks sings a
country song
entitled
"Unanswered
Prayers" that,
when listened
to, has a pow-
erful mean-
ing. I've al-
ways listened
to this song
and thought of

school days

court was not the same
O'Neal Robinson he had
met before.
"This young man spent
most of his time telling
others after the break-in.
just how bad he was,"
Puliotte said. "He was a
'gangsta," and a really
smart'one at that. I'll ad-
mit he got away with some
petty drug deals, I'll admit
he got away with beating
up his mother, but how bad
does one have to be to beat
up an older woman?"
Puliotte said, when
Robinson and his buddies
decided to break into
B&GP Enterprises, they
did so with the pretense of
needing a magazine for a
handgun.
"O'Neal Kevin Robin-
son cased the joint,"
Puliotte stated. "The
break-in was premeditat-
ed."
Puliotte said that he
was truly sorry that Robin-
son didn't take advantage
of the local public school
system and learn to read
and write.
"I'm also sorry O'Neal
never had a father figure
while growing up," he
said. "I'm also sorry he
had to rat out his ex-best
friends, Marcus Smith,
who got 17 years, and Cory
Johnson, who will be sen-
tenced on Halloween day."
Puliotte also noted a ju-
venile, nicknamed "Fat
Rat" will also be tried in
Madison County for the
burglary.
"We all have choices to
make, in life. One can ei-
ther become a good tax-
paying citizen, or one can
become a criminal,"
Puliotte said. "Robinson's
choice was to break into an
unoccupied building, then
steal firearms, in order to
enhance his criminal ac-
tivities. I doubt very much
that O'Neal Kevin Robin-
* son and his friends stole
* those firearms to go deer
* hunting. One of the
firearms found was in the
possession of a known
* drug dealer. This drug
dealer also had in his pos-
session, names of under-
cover police and'deputies
here in Madison County
This knowledge could have
endangered several of our
neighbors, the people that
protect us every day from
the likes of these crimi-
nals."

come to apply it to a more current event
in my life.
The song talks about a man seeing an
old girlfriend at a high school football
game and his mind drifts back to "the
way things used to be." The song then
says that every night the boy had prayed
that God would "make her mine." And
..... "And if he'd only grant me this wish I
wished back then, I'd never ask for any-
thing again."
And then the chorus:
Sometimes I thank God for unan-
swered prayers
Remember when you're talking to the
man upstairs,
That just because he doesn't answer
doesn't mean he don't care Some of God's
greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.
It goes on to say that as they talked
they both realized that time had changed
them both and they no longer had in com-
mon what they used to. The man then
looks at his wife "And then and there I
thanked the good Lord for the gifts in my
life."
Sometimes I thank God for unan-
swered prayers
Remember when you're talking to the
man upstairs
That just because he doesn't answer

Some of God's greatest gifts are unan-
swered prayers.

About two years ago, I started check-
ing into adoption. I felt the strong
urge/desire that I wanted to adopt a little
boy Paul and I have two wonderful, beau-
tiful, loving daughters, but I felt such a
desire to adopt a little boy. I had always
wanted to have four children (three was
the minimum) but the Lord saw fit that I
had two. And what a blessing my two
girls are. I grew up with two older broth-
ers and I always thought my girls should
"experience" a brother.
Paul didn't seem as enthusiastic as I
was at the time. I had thought an eight-
year- old boy would fit in perfectly (age
, wise) and we have so much to offer him.
A good home, love and support, and acres
and acres to run and play and ride four-
wheelers and horses I just felt it was a.
win-win situation.
Paul tarried it would be a lot of
strain adopting an "older child" that had
come from a bad home and had bad mem-
ories of "home life."
Oh, how I prayed. "Lord, please
change Paul's mind. Lord, please grant
me this one wish. Lord, please give me a
little boy"
Time passed and I learned to change
my prayers. "Lord, Thy will be done. If
this is what You want, then tell Paul. If
this is not what You want, then tell me." I
learned to pray for God's will not mine.
Months later, it seemed the pieces be-
gan to fall into place. I got a call from the
MAPP class (that I felt would NEVER re-
turn my calls) that a class was going to
begin in Greenville (other classes had
been in Tallahassee, Wakulla, Perry, and
Lake City.) I never told Paul about the
phone call, though. When the letter came
in, Paul was the one that got the mail that
day and opened it, and said he thought we
would go.
"Wow," I thought. God was answer-
ing my prayers. Unexpected phone call,
class in Greenville, and Paul wanted to
go. Then, while explaining my "answered
prayer" to a friend of mine, she said,
"Emerald, God might be setting all this
up to show you that this isn't what He
wants. This might be His way of telling


you 'no."

F L 'UI Emight be
how God
was going to ease my heart and tell me
no.
Well, (story's getting long), we took
the class. My hopes were a little weak-
ened with ,the fact that I knew if we
adopted a little boy he would come with
"baggage" and not be as excited as my
fairy tale dream had it to be. It would
take time but time, I have, and a lot of
love I have.
Every story I had ever heard about
the "system" proved to be correct. Our
"caseworker" would forget appoint-
ments, told me I had to keep on top of the
website to see if I saw a child and then to
call her (she didn't look for us); it took
her months to even fill out my home
study. She would never return my phone
calls, never answer my e-mails. I looked
up hundreds of little boys on websites. I
inquired about children from other
states, just searching for a child to give a
loving home to. I complained about my
caseworker, sent e-mails, left voice mes-
sages, talked to her supervisors it all fell
on deaf ears.
I felt heartbroken but then I would
remind myself "Maybe this is God's way
of telling you no."
Then it happened. My unanswered
prayer turned into my answered prayer.
My nephew Hunter moved in to our
house. Hunter is a senior at Aucilla and
has moved in and taken the space that I'm
sure God was saving for him. My brother
Harvey (Hunter's dad) lives in St. Peters-
burg, but Hunter loves Madison and loves
Aucilla end longed to back here.
I look back at the last two years and at
the longing I've had for another child to
fill my .house, fill my life, and fill my
heart. I truly believe, without a doubt,
that God knew that space would be filled,
by Hunter, but He had to prepare my
heart for it. My longing for another child '
was preparing me for the upcoming of
Hunter moving in to my house. I truly be-
lieve that.
I didn't get me an eight-year-old child
who can sit on my lap, but I got me a won-
derful 17-year-old that has been a true
blessing to my family. I still have extra
kisses in the morning, extragood-night
kisses, more laughs and more love than I
had a few months ago. Hunter has be-
come like an, older brother to Chelfsie
and Brooke, just not as much fighting as
if they had lived together for longer than
they have. (He's also a good'"watchdog"
at school about which boys they, can and
cannot talk to just like my brothers did
me.)
Hunter is STRONG ini his Christian
beliefs and he and Cheltsie"arid Brooke
share talks and conversations about the
Lord. Brooke has her an extrahorse. rid-
ing partner, Cheltsie has an extra hunter
to share 5 o'clock morning hunts with.
We're watching movies we've never seen
like Lord of the Rings while Hunter is
learning to watch Hannah Montana and
High School Musical.
I didn't get my prayer answered by
adopting a child out of foster care, but
what I got far exceeds that. I got Hunter.
Paul and I are learning to be "senior
parents." I get to make brownies for
every home football game. Paul and
Hunter are fixing up on an old truck for
Hunter (I think Paul is having more fun
with that than Hunter), and the food I go
through now in my household is unbe-
lievable.
But remember...

As an 11-year old Boy
Scout, the second merit
badge I earned was Public
Speaking. One of my re-
quirements was to give a
public address which I did
before the Gainesville
d chapter of the Business
t- and Professional Women's
Club. My topic was scout-
1 ing: mny Dad would ask me
questions and I provided
o the rehearsed answers.
. There were about fifty
s business women in the au-
e dience pretty heady
stuff for a fifth grader.
I'm reminded of this
V, subject because of the im-
s portance we place on pub-
r lic speaking in our politi-
- cal leaders. It is impor-
l tant, but we are easily led
- astray Let me explain.
It is important for our
k political leaders to explain
y their position on the mat-
ters which matter the
most. After all, we are en-
trusting public policy into
the hands of our elected
representatives who will
pass laws which affect our
daily lives on matters like
health care, property tax-,
es, national security, ener-
gy ... the list goes on and
on. These are complex
matters. We depend on
our political leaders to
break the issues down so
they are understandable
and then tell us where
they stand. Then we can
judge who best represents
what we believe and, as a
result, should receive our
vote.
But, it is easy to get
mesmerized by a politi-
cian's fancy language and
gloss over what he or she
is actually communicat-
ing. For example, when a
politician is questioned,
listen carefully to both the
question and answer to

see if they in fact answer
the question. Or instead,
did they pull off the old
"bait and switch" trick
where they began their
answer and quickly switch
subjects and answer the
question they had wished
you asked. That is a form
of dishonesty Politicians
are expert at this trick.
Let me give you some
good and bad examples of
what I am talking about.
Ronald Reagan was called
the "great communicator"
because of his ability to
connect with the audi-
ence. His themes were
simple and direct and he
made the subject under-
standable. It was a craft
that he perfected during
his career in radio, Holly-
wood, and as a spokesman
for General Electric. He
inspired people, unlike his
predecessor Jimmy
Carter.
President Bush and
his Dad (41) before him
have never been great
communicators, but it
doesn't run in the family
because our former gover-
nor Jeb is really quite
good. I have a feeling that
public support for the war
On terror and especially
the conflict in Iraq would
be greater if we had a bet-
ter communicator in the
White House.
Say what you will
about Bill Clinton, he is an


expert communicator. I
think that many hours of
political debate helped
him make that personal
connection with his audi-
ence. He has a very nim-
ble mind and we often mis-
take that for brilliance,
but it isn't necessarily so.
Many smart people are
not very good speakers.
Conversely, many excel-
lent speakers don't have
much of substance to say
because they don't know
too much. Again, it is im-
portant to listen carefully
to the substance of what
they are telling you which
is just as important as
there ability to craft words
that sound good.
So let's look at what
the leading presidential
candidates are saying and
how they are saying it.
Hillary Clinton is a pol-
ished speaker but her de-
livery is frequently unin-
spiring. The latest criti-
cism is that she is ducking
the tough questions so we
don't know where she
stands with respect to
things like Social Security
and all those details of her
universal health care
plan.
Barack Obama is an
inspiring speaker but in-
experienced. When he
does spell out details on
.things like social and for-
eign policy, it sounds ama-


teurish. John Edwards is
a polished stump speaker,
evidenced by many hours
as a courtroom trial
lawyer. He has plenty of
details in what he says,
and they can be frighten-
ing. Also, there is a
chameleon type quality to
Edwards, reminiscent of
Al Gore, who went from
being a "conservative De-
mocrat" to ultra-liberal as
soon as he burst on the na-
tional stage.
Rudy Giuliani ,is a
good speaker with a nim-
ble mind, a craft he honed
as a prosecutor. Like Rea-
gan, he can explain things
to people in a manner they
can understand. Mitt
Romney is an excellent,
smooth speaker, but he of-
ten comes across as too
scripted. John McCain is
not a polished speaker, but
he is known for his
"straight talk," meaning
that he answers questions
unambiguously, unlike
most politicians. Fred
Thompson is equally
rough around the edges
when it comes to public
speaking, but his answers
are concise and to the
point.
I have chosen to talk
about the speaking abili-
ties of presidential candi-
dates, but the general na-
ture of this topic applies
to every political level in-
cluding the officers and
representatives we elect
right here in Madison.
Listen .carefully to what
they say Do they answer
the questions? Do their
answers inspire confi-
dence? Are their answers
based on principles?
Don't forget, ,we get the
government we deserve
every time there is an elec-
tion.

Registration for the Halloween Costume Contest
will begin at 5 p.m. on the west lawn of the Madison

There are four age groups that will be judged. In-

10 to twelve year olds. Categories exist in each age
group for the spookiest or the best movie themed cos-

Those children wanting' to Trick or Treat in this
year's event, will need to pick up there check off forms
from in front of. the Madison Police Department. Each
child will be given a list of each of the vendors and the
vendors will check off on the list when the child has
visited their booth. Children must be in costume and
with an adult to receive the vendor check list.
Madison PD has requested that Trick or Treaters
not go into the neighborhoods after the 8 p.m. conclu-
sion of the event.


HUNGRY


As noted, a clear starting point is essential and the Healthy Start presentation's
focal points served well for establishing a solid "base line" for this series. These fo-
cal points fell broadly into two categories, basic needs and safety needs. Both cate-
gories are so obvious, and have been the topic of news for so long, that many may let
the information roll away in boredom. Frankly, it's unimaginable that these issues
could still exist, but exist they do, and in a big way.
Basic needs will be considered first, with safety needs being covered in the next
two parts of the series. These basic needs include five elements that represent the
very fabric of what our forefathers intended to address when they wrote, "promote
the general welfare," so eloquently in the Preamble of The Constitution. "Freedom
From Want," one of the cornerstones of the Four Freedoms, on which Madison was
built, is directly targeting these needs as well.
These basic needs are food, water, clothing, shelter and health.
It's a common belief that anyone willing to work a full day, and do their part to
take cafe of their family, can provide the first four basic needs. Regarding the fifth
need, even health hazards are looked at as mostly avoidable, at least until late in life,
if one can just exhibit self-control regarding eating, smoking, drinking, exercise, etc.
Consequently, personal feelings about these issues will profoundly affect the way
one "hears" the report. In order to minimize this effect, and start things on solid,
middle ground, the basic needs topic today is hunger. Compelling conditions and
startling images have been documented on each basic need element, including top re-
search from agencies, universities, charities, churches and professionals associated
with this huge concern. More details of these studies will be revisited as the series
progresses
According to three of these surveys, Florida Impact, Florida School Food Service
Foundation, and the USDA Economic Research Service: Food and Agricultural Orga-
nization of the United Nations; Madison County is not only at or near the worst
hunger conditions for the state, but also grades below countries around the world that
are thought of as "third-world," or at least highly underdeveloped.
The terminology, "Regional Hunger, Food Insecurity," is the title used to label the
numbers created from questions like, "Do you ever go to bed hungry?" or "Do you
ever worry about where your family's next meal will come from?" "World Hunger"
comparisons are done much the same way. In addition, both regional and world sur-
veys also acknowledge that meals are missed. In Madison for instance, more than a
few students report that the meals provided by the school system are their primary
source of nutrition, and that sadly on weekends meals are skipped.
The website located at www.flimpact.org states, "Florida Impact is dedicated to
reducing hunger and poverty in Florida. We achieve this by mobilizing communities
to secure justice for, and with, those whose economic rights have not been realized,
and by increasing access to federal food, nutrition, and other economic-support pro-
grams through aggressive outreach and public policy advocacy"
In simple terms, Florida Impact joins and empowers community officials, chari-


cont from page 1A


ties, churches and volunteers to deliver solutions, if necessary one hungry child at a
time. So when asking oneself, "What can I do?" and "Where should I start?" Again,
it's simple really; start where you are and do what you can.
So by the numbers; on a regional basis, "hunger" in Madison comes in at over
22%, compared to a Florida state average of 12%. And if this statistic by itself does-
n't impact one sufficiently to ask "Why, and what, can be done?" consider the follow-
ing world hunger comparison.
Madison County.has hunger conditions worse than Uganda, Laos and numerous
other countries seen as possessing ghastly economic conditions. Uganda is a land-
locked country in eastern Africa, and Laos is, a landlocked, communist country is
southeast Asia once made famous by its presence in the Vietnam War.
Just as the Florida Impact mission implies, hunger is directly related to poverty
and poverty is the outcome of two core "safety/security" needs not being met. These
core safety needs are "security of employment" and "security of education," and
again, both will be addressed in parts 2 and 3 or this series where the "why" will be
detailed more fully. Safety of person and property will also be reviewed.
To briefly recap, part 1,2 and 3 are intended to outline and organize the issues.
Part 4 will then provide a summary that includes a directory of local resources avail-
able to those in need and the process to obtain it. Those looking to assist in deliver-
ing these solutions will be introduced to a "priority planning outreach." For in-
stance, food pantries, Food Stamps and church support work locally to combat
hunger, but obviously the numbers strongly assert more help is needed.
Is this help as simple as introducing those in need to available resources, or per-
haps just addressing reasons those in need won't reach out for help? Or are local re-
sources just too limited to meet today's demand? Are new resources coming? These
questions too will be asked, but more importantly, an actual recipe consisting of step-
by-step marching orders, will be presented. At that time, and in the interim, all read-
ers are strongly urged to reach out to anyone they know in need and introduce the
idea that new help is coming, while assuring everything currently available is being
utilized to its fullest.
Among this new help, Madison County is now forming a Whole Child Steering
and Planning Committee with the help of the Lawton Chiles Foundation. Madison
County was one of 14 rural high-risk counties, mostly in north Florida and the pan-
handle, that did not have a Healthy Families program. The 2007 legislature has now
provided funding.
Healthy Families and Whole Child of Madison are expansions to existing pro-
grams administered by Kim Barnhill, Administrator, Jefferson/Madison County
Health Department and Hinchliffe. "The Executive Board is currently being educat-
ed regarding the goals and range of the programs," Barnhill stated. "We are con-
ducting 'Listening Projects,' where our representatives meet with agency, civic and
church officials to ensure assistance gets to the root causes where the money can
make a lasting difference," she added.

The Story Behind the Symbol


Enrique "Kiki" Camarena grew up in a dirt-floored house
with hopes and dreams of making a difference.
Camarena worked his way through college, served in the
Marines and became a police officer. When he decided to join
the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, his mother tried
to talk him out of it. "I can't not do this," he told her. "I'm
only one person, but I want to make a difference."
The DEA sent Camarena to work undercover in Mexico
investigating a major drug cartel believed to include officers
in the Mexican army, police and government. On Feb. 7, 1985,
the 37-year-old Camarena left his office to meet his wife for
lunch. Five men appeared at the agent's side and shoved him
in a car. One month later, Camarena's body was found in a
shallow grave. He had been tortured to death.
In honor of Camarena's memory and his battle against

illegal drugs, friends and neighbors began to wear red
badges of satin. Parents, sick of the destruction of alcohol
and other drugs, had begun forming coalitions. Some of
these new coalitions took Camarena as their model and
embraced his belief that one person can make a difference.
These coalitions also adopted the symbol of Camarena's
memory, the red ribbon.
The National Family Partnership organized the first
Nationwide Red Ribbon Campaign in 1988. Since that time,
the campaign has reached millions of U.S. children.
In 1997, the Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse
began committing resources to ensure the continuation of
the Red Ribbon Campaign in Texas, as well as the hopes and
beliefs behind this grassroots effort to protect children from
the dangers of alcohol and other drugs.

Madison County also ranks far above the Florida av-

"Get Smart About Credit D


Bringing attention to
national "Get Smart About
Credit Day", Deidra New-
man of the Madison Coun-
ty Community Bank visit-
ed local schools through-
out Madison County to
help educate the children
on the financial challenges
they may face as adults.
Get Smart About Credit
Day is a national day rec-
ognized on October 18th.
Newman conducted these
free classes on Oct. 17, 18
and 19.
Credit is a fact of life
for all Americans. 4 out of
5 American Adults carry
more than 9 credit cards
each and these numbers
are rising. Today, if we
placed American's credit
cards end to end, they
would circle the earth
more than 3 times. Ameri-
can Teens spend $175 bil-
lion per year and 83% of
college students have at
least one credit card. With
this freedom comes finan-
cial responsibility and un-
fortunately many young
people don't have the tools
they need to make smart fi-
nancial choices. Credit is a
useful and necessary tool
in today's complex finan-
cial world. With educa-
tion, you can learn how to
manage credit responsibil-
ity and take control of
your personal finances.
Employees of Madison
County Community Bank
educated students at
MCHS and MCCS on the
Do's and, Don'ts of credit
last week to mark National
Get Smart About Credit
Day, a financial literacy
program.
The presentation is an
effort made by bankers to
help young people take
charge of their personal fi-
nances.
"The Choices young
adults make with their
first credit card will im-
pact their lives years later
when they apply for a car
loan or even a mortgage,"
-said Deidra McRory New-
man, Business Develop-
ment Officer and certified
Educator with Madison


County Community Bank.
"We are participating in
the Get Smart About Cred-
it Program to raise aware-
ness about the responsible
use of credit and, to show
young adults how they can
use credit wisely, right
from the start."
Presentations focused
on six, core activities the
"how-to's" of credit in-
cluding obtaining and
managing credit, reading a
credit report effectively,
understanding the impor-
tance of a good credit
record, budgeting now to
help avoid credit problems
later and keeping personal
financial information se-
cure.
When it comes to cred-
it, everyone seems to have
questions, especially
teenagers and young
adults. 76% of teens would
like to learn about money
management in school. In
fact, 74 percent believe
money management
should be a required
school course.
The need' to teach
young adults about credit
and other aspects of per-
sonal money management
has never been greater. In
a 2006 Survey measuring
12th graders' knowledge of
personal finance basics,
only 52.4% answered the
questions correctly That is
a failing grade. Only 6.9%
received a "C" or better. As
the stats and other re-
search show, students need
budgeting and credit man-
-agement skills.
The curriculum,
taught by Deidra McRory
SNewman and certified edu-
cator and banker, is de-
signed to. reinforce educa-
tional goals established by
the National Council of
Teachers Mathematics
(NCTM), the Jumpstart
Coalition Personal Fi-
nance Standards and the
American Association of
Family and Consumer Sci-
ences National Standards.
Lessons also support the
personal finance stan-
dards developed by the Na-
tional Council on Econom-


ics Education.


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 that make the difference in
choosing the right financial opportunities for your
future. Let us assist you with your investment needs.

"The credit presenta-
tion was very informative.
Regardless of which path
in life our students may
choose, every one of them
will one day have to deal
with the business side of
life. By informing them of


their options now, they
will be better prepared in
the future to make those
sometimes life-altering de-
cisions about their fi-
nances. We greatly appre-
ciate MCCB for their will-

Don't Let


Credit is a useful tool
to pay for college tuition,
vocational or trade school
or a car. It's important for
young adults to shop
around and find out what
kind of loan candidate
they are. Bankers look at
the 4C's of credit to deter-
mine if someone is eligible
for a loan.
1. Character proof of
steady employment and
rent payments. Any signs
of stability and reliability
are important.
2. Collateral It may be
required that you back up
your loan with something
of value.
3. Capacity The abili-
ty to repay a loan over
time. A steady job with a
regular paycheck is very
important.
4. Credit Payment
history of all kinds is im-
portant. A history of pay-
ing bills on time, even util-
ity bills is essential.
Throughout the year
MCCB volunteers will vis-
it classrooms and teach
students how to use credit
cards responsibly in sup-
port of the Get Smart
About Credit program.
For those who do not
receive a classroom lesson,
the following are tips to get
smart about credit.
T- Talk to your credit
card issuer if you have
questions. The credit card
business is
very competitive and
wants to provide good cus-
tomer service. If you are
unsure about something,
ask.
0- Order a copy of
your free credit report an-
nually Your credit report
evaluates your perfor-
mance as a borrower and
needs to be accurate. To
obtain a free copy of your
credit report from the Fed-
eral Trade Commission,
visit
www.annual
creditreport.com.
G- Go to your local
bank or call your credit
card issuer if you are hav-
ing trouble making pay-


ments. Often they can
work with you to establish
a more manageable pay-
ment plan.
E- Evaluate varying
credit card offers. Choose
the card that offers the
right features for you.
T- Take time to shred
important documents, in-
cluding medical records,
financial records and cred-
it card offers. Identity
thieves can use the infor-
mation on those docu-
ments to open new lines of
credit in your name.
S- Save for emergen-
cies. Experts recommend
having three months
salary in reserve, but as lit-
tle as $500 will help pay for
common emergencies. Use
a realistic budgetto help
pay down your debts while
saving.
M- Make sure that
you pay your credit card
balance in full each month.
Avoid making only the
minimum payment and do
not pay late.
A- Access your ac-
count online to monitor
and compare charges with
receipts. Regular review
of your accounts helps
protect you from unautho-'
rized charges or identity
theft.
R- Read your credit
card agreement carefully.
Understand what your fi-
nance charge and Annual
Percentage Rate are and
when your grace period ex-
pires. See your bank for a
Guide to Credit Cards, a re-
source that helps cardhold-
ers understand credit card
terms and specifics.
T- Think seriously,
when it comes to your
credit. Banks look at your
credit history as an indica-
tion of your future finan-
cial behavior.
Call your bank if you
have questions. Your bank
is there to help you and
can make recommenda-
tions about managing your
money
Teacher Comments
On MCCB Financial Pro-
grams
"Having the bank visit
us was a definite treat for
the students for which
they were grateful. Be-
yond the fact that they
were given goody bags,
which meant a lot to them,
connections about careers,
money and credit was pre-
sented that the children
may never have been ex-
posed to or might not have
thought about in quite the
same way as Ms. Newman
delivered the information.
The children cannot wait
for the next visit by the
bank." Stephanie David-
son Madison County
Central School.
"The students at MCHS are
always interested in topics
related to finances. We
should be teaching them
more about money to help
them in the future. The
problem is that there are
so many other standards
that need to be covered for
the FCAT, that financial
topics typically get pushed
aside. With some creativi-
ty, extra planning time,

Investment Strategy

Submitted by Brad Bashaw
Some investors were rattled by the recent volatility
in the stock market. And it's hard to blame them. After
all, one day, we're seeing record highs, and then, a few
days later, we're on a losing streak followed by a re-
bound. What will happen this week, next week or next
month? No one really knows, but.one thing is certain:
Stock prices often fall (or rise) for reasons that have lit-
tle to do with why you invest.
To illustrate, let's consider two of the factors that in-
vestment professionals cite as responsible for the mar-
ket's series of losses in early June:
Falling hopes for a rate cut Federal Reserve
Chairman Ben Bernanke hinted that the Fed might not
be cutting interest rates before the year ended. Because
interest rate cuts often spur the economy and can boost
stock prices' (at least in the short term), Bernanke's
statements took away some enthusiasm from investors.
Rising bond yields Bond yields rose significantly;
at one point during the stock market's losing streak, the
yield on the 10-year Treasury note hit 5.24 percent, its
highest level in five years. When yields go over the 5 per-
cent level, some stock investors believe they can cut
back on risk, and still earn a reasonable return, by in-
vesting in bonds. If many of these investors then pull
back from the stock market, stock prices may fall.
As an individual investor, what should you take
away from these apparent "mood swings" of Wall
Street?
Here's Lesson Number One: Don't overreact to the
mood swirigs of Wall Street. You'll waste time, money
and effort by constantly trying to adjust your invest-
ment strategies in response to "events" such as com-
ments by the Federal Reserve chairman or a rise in bond
yields above a rather arbitrary figure.
When the market is volatile (and even when it isn't),
focus on the things you can control. Here are a few sug-
gestions:
Invest broadly. If you spread your dollars among a
range of stocks, bonds, government securities and other
vehicles, your portfolio may withstand market down-
turns better than if you only owned one or two types of
investments.
Buy quality. Look for quality investments, includ-
ing stocks of well-run companies with histories of pay-
ing dividends. These investments tend to hold their val-
ue better during market declines and they usually
bounce back faster when those declines run their
course. (Keep in mind, though, that companies can in-
crease, decrease or totally eliminate dividends at any
time without notice.)
Follow an "all-weather" fixed-income strategy.
If you are investing part of your portfolio in bonds,
don't try to "outguess" the direction of interest rates. In-
stead, take an "all-weather" approach by building a "lad-
der" consisting of bonds of varying maturities. Once
you've created your ladder, you are prepared for both
rising and falling interest rates. When rates are rising,
the proceeds from your maturing bonds can be used to
invest in new bonds at the higher levels. When market
rates are falling, you'll continue -to benefit from the
higher rates offered by your longer-term bonds even if
the maturing bonds will be locking into the lower rates.
Above all else, keep your eyes on your goals. Your
monthly investment statements may occasionally make
you frown but if you've done a good job of building a
solid investment portfolio and you follow long-term
strategies, you may eventually have a lot to smile about.

LIONS Add Hearing To Their Vision


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
.President Lee Ferdon
opened this week's Lions
Club luncheon and follow-
ing a few housekeeping
items, handed it off to Re-
tired Madison County
Sheriff Joe Peavy who in-
troduced this week's guest
speaker. "Bernie Spahals-
ki is a hearing specialist
with Beltone. He's here to
tell us about the hearing
programs Beltone has in
our area," Peavy said.
Using a little humor to
carry a serious message,
Spahalski came up and
told the group about the
very real need to improve
healing care and aware-
ness. After providing sev-
eral examples about the
importance of hearing
loss prevention and the
awful consequences other-
wise, Spahalski discussed
the IUons Club intent to in-
clude hearing aid dona-


tions and recycling with
their current eyeglasses
donation program.
Already helping local
residents with their vision
health program, the mem-
bers agreed to add hearing
health to this year's pro-
.


gram. "We will accept
hearing aid donations, as
well as eyeglasses. Tell
everyone that our dona-
tion boxes will be distrib-
uted around Madison in
the near future," Ferdon
stated.


Retired Sheriff and Lions Club member Joe Peavy
(right) introduced Bernie Spahalski, a Beltone Hearing In-
strument Specialist.


"Hearing and under-
standing must be consid-
ered together," Spahalski
explained. "The brain
processes the electrical
impulses from the ear. If
hearing loss is occurring,
we can perform tests to de-
termine if it's the ear,
brain or both," he added.
"And always protect your
hearing. When you're
around loud noises, lawn
mowers for instance, wear
ear protection. Once you
lose it, your hearing won't
come back," he said in
closing.
Prior to adjourning,
members were reminded
that Dr. Melanie Hill
would be the guest speaker
on October 30, and that all
are urged to attend.

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On October 11, 2004,
while visiting Madison
Lodge No. 11, the Grand-
master of the Free and Ac-
cepted Masons for the
State of Florida declared
the day, "Jim Stanley Day."
He further declared
that Jim Stanley Day is to
be recognized forever; to
be held on October 11 of


each year, or on the first
lodge meeting of October,
whichever occurs first.
The eventbegan with a
dinner provided. by the
ladies of the Order of the
Eastern Star. The celebra-
tion also included a raffle
and a striking cake de-
signed for the occasion.
The dinner was literal-
ly standing room only Fol-
lowing dinner, activities


shifted upstairs and were
turned over to Worshipful
Master Bob Pugh.
"The work that Jim
Stanley has performed
over the years is incredi-
ble," Pugh began. "Jim
and his wife Sandra have
sacrificed so much of their
time supporting the Lodge.
Jim's put so much into in-
struction and training and
has been personally re-

sponsible for about 240
brothers becoming Master
Masons," Pugh added.
Slow to accept praise,
but quick to give it, Stan-
ley told the group that his
work as a trainer and Sec-
retary of the Lodge "has
been the most enjoyable
experience." Later, reflect-
.ing on the occasion, he
stated, "I knew the State
Grandmaster was coming
that night, but I thought it
was for a different reason.
They truly surprised me,
and when I got called up
my breath was taken away
It was an incredible hon-
or."
During the meeting,
held this year on October
8, Stanley was responsible
for distributing some
recognition as well. Three
new Master Masons were
awarded their certificates,
and numerous anniver-
sary certificates were also
awarded. These anniver-
saries ranged from 25
years to a remarkable 65
years. As Stanley an-
nounced the recipients, he
showed even more pride in
their accomplishments
than his own.

Students in North Florida Community College's
World Religions class got a first-hand look at artifacts,
Bibles, pictures and even bugs from Papua New Guinea
when guest speaker and New Guinea missionary Danny
DeLoach visited NFCC at the end of September.
NFCC's World Religions course, instructed by David
Paulk, studies major religions such as Hinduism, Bud-
dhism, Judaism, Islam and Christianity and focuses on
the history, writings, cen-
tral beliefs and current
cultural relevance of
such religions.
DeLoach, who has
served as a missionary in
Papua New Guinea for 12
years, spoke about the in-
teraction between Chris-I
tianity and New Guinea's
traditional religion Ani-
mism, the belief that all
things in nature have
souls. He also spoke about
his organization's role in
literacy in minority lan-
guages around the world.
"Mr. DeLoac4's contri-
bution to our class was in-
valuable," said Paulk. i
"He answered all of the
students' questions. The NFCC Instructor David P

and genuinely interested."
DeLoach works through the Wycliffe Bible Transla-

hundreds of different languages on the island. By of-
fering Bibles translated into these native languages, De-
Loach not only assists with literacy efforts, but also en-
courages scripture reading.
One major point that DeLoach shared with NFCC
students is that there are many positive impacts when
people are exposed to dif-

Casey Anderson had two rushes for 40 yards, and Bish-

A.J. Connell was two for two on the extra-point at-
tempts.
On the defensive side of the field, Reggie Walker and
Casey Anderson each had six tackles, ,two assists. Barn-
well, five tackles, one pass interception and one fumble re-
covery Woody Vollertsen, seven tackles, three assists, and
Hunter Greene, seven tackles, two assists.
The Warriors now stand 5-2 on the season and 1-2 in Dis-
trict play.


Aucilla goes into a district game against Graceville, at
7:30 p.m., Friday Oct. 26, there.
Striplin said Graceville is a big and strong team. "They
were runners-up in state last year," said Striplin. "They
have a real good running back and they average handing
him the ball about 40 times per game. They base their of-
fense on him, so we're going to have to key in on him and
keep him front scoring."
Striplin concluded that the Warriors have to pull out a
win against Graceville. If they do not win, the Warriors
will not travel on to district play-offs.

port academic scholarships for

"The clay shoot has drawn a
large following over the past
few years for three reasons:
it's great fun, it appeals to a
wide range of businesses and
sponsors and it supports NFCC
students. I am enormously
thankful for everyone who had
a hand in making it such a suc-
cessful event," said Ruther-
ford.
The day was the kind typi-
cal of early fall beautiful as

num of Perry, 2nd Troy Cog-
gin of Havana and 3rd Daniel

ing the NFCC Sentinel Base-
ball team, were trappers at
various stations throughout
the course.

Match Financial Goals

with the Right Investments

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Over the course of your life, you'll almost certainly
have many different financial goals and to help achieve
them, you'll need to use many different investments.
How might you target specific investments for specif-
ic goals? Here are a few suggestions:

Saving for a home: When saving for a down payment
on their first house, many people set up an account exclu-
sively for that purpose, keeping the money separate from
other investment accounts. To save for a home, you might
want to use certificates of deposit (CDs) or short-term,
investment-grade bonds, both of which can help preserve
your principal.
Saving for retirement: To enjoy a long and comfort-
able retirement, you'll need to build a substantial amount
of financial resources. And you'll help yourself if you can
accumulate those savings in tax-advantaged vehicles. If
your employer offers a 401(k) or similar retirement plan,
take full advantage of it. Your contributions are generally
made with pre-tax dollars, so the more you put in, the
lower your annual taxable income. Plus, your earnings can
potentially grow on a tax-deferred basis, which means
your money may accumulate faster than it would if placed
in an investment on which you paid taxes every year. And
your 401(k) or other plan may have a dozen or more
investment options.
Even if you have a 401(k) or other employer-spon-
sored plan, you can usually contribute to an IRA as well.
A traditional IRA offers tax-deferred earnings, while a
Roth IRA can potentially grow tax-free, provided you
don't begin taking withdrawals until you're 59 1/2 and
you've had your account at least five years. And you can
fund an IRA with virtually any type of investment stocks,
bonds, CDs, etc.
Saving for college: You can save for college with a
Coverdell Education Savings Account or a Section 529
savings plan, both of which can provide tax-free earnings,
as long as the money is used for higher education expens-
es. (Your earnings will be taxable if you use withdrawals
for other purposes.) And if you invest in your own state's
Section 529 plan, your contributions may be tax
deductible. However, Section 529 plan distributions could
reduce your child's ability to qualify for financial aid.
Another possibility to consider is a zero-coupon bond,
typically issued by the Treasury under the name of
STRIPS. You buy a zero-coupon bond at a deep discount;
when the bond matures (which, if you've planned careful-
ly, will occur when your child is ready to enter college),
you collect the full face value. However, you may have to
pay taxes on each year's interest payments, even though
you don't actually receive them until the bond matures.
Generating income during retirement: You could
spend two or three decades in retirement, so you'll need a
consistent income stream, which you may be able to
receive from investment-grade bonds. But to fight the
effects of inflation, you'll also need the potential for rising
income, which you may be able to receive from dividend-
producing stocks. (Keep in mind, though, that even stocks
that have consistently paid dividends can decrease or elim-
inate them at any time without notice:)

Of course, these investments are certainly not the only
ones available to you. But they do help point out the
importance of identifying your various goals and choos-
ing the right investments to help meet them.
