Airport Fails To

Lift-Off


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
At 12:53 a.m. on Saturday, October
27, dispatch at Madison County Sher-
iff's Department received a call report-
ing a cutting, according to Sergeant Art
Deno.
Deno stated that the victim, convict-
ed felon Simmie Lott, was sliced multi-
ple times with a razor blade or razor
knife at the John Henry Nightclub at
U.S. Highway 221 and Short Street in
Greenville.
Three people were arrested in con-
nection to the cutting. Ira Lee Denson
and Carlos D. Murray were arrested for
aiding and abetting following the inci-
dent, while Terry Lee Denson was ar-
rested on Monday for attempted murder
and aggravated battery Terry Denson
had been wanted since the incident and
was located on Monday after an anony-
mous tip was called in.
On Saturday evening another stab-
bing occurred in Greenville, according
to Deno. This time, a call regarding a


iII


kIi


stabbing was called into dispatch at ap-
proximately 8 p.m., and at the time it
was believed that only one person was
involved in the incident.
While Deputy Kevin Odom was re-
sponding to the initial call, he was
flagged down at the Fast Track at the
corner of 221 and U.S. 90. A stabbing
was reported to Odom, and Sgt. Deno
continued on to the first call.
The original call, which occurred at
a residence on 221, allegedly took place
in "16 quarters" outside the Denson res-
idence. It was discovered that the sec-
ond stabbing also allegedly occurred
outside the same place.
Both victims were 15-year-old males.
The original victim was transported by
life flight to a nearby hospital, and the
second victim was taken by his mother
to the Madison County Memorial Hospi-
tal Emergency Room, where he was
treated and released.
Kelvin Antoio Leonard Mutch is
wanted for questioning in reference to
the stabbings.

Churches Provide Safety

On Halloween Night


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Parents seeking safe Halloween al-
ternatives have no further to look than
area churches.
The First Baptist Church of
Greenville, located at the corner of US 90
West and Highway 221 North, will host a
fall festival, along with trunk and treat
on Wednesday evening, October 31, from
5:30-7:30 p.m. Children will enjoy games,
food and fun in a Christian environ-
ment.
Midway Church of God will host a
hobo supper and hayride on Wednesday
evening. The fun will begin at 6 p.m.


Trunk and treat will also be part of
the fun at Midway Church of God.
The church is located at 2485 SE Mid-
way Church Road, just off County Road
255, south of Interstate 10 (Lee exit) or
off Highway 53 South, south of Inter-
state 10 (Madison exit).
Trunk and treat provides a safe al-
ternative to children going to the homes
of people they don't know and perhaps
having someone put something into
their treats that could be harmful to
them. Church members bag their cars in
a circle as people go from one car to an-
other and are given treats out of the
trunks of cars.

The Status


Of Madison


Families
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madison County safety statistics re-
veal that crime is one category where
the county is not only better than state
average, but also has shown dramatic
improvement over the last five years.
According to the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enfof'cement, 2006 Florida
County-by-County Crime Data, the
crime index for Madison County is 20
percent better than state average and
100 percent better than the worst coun-
ties in Florida. In fact, since 2002, the
index has decreased by almost 40 per-
cent.
'As the area grows however, resi-
dents need to be careful with their be-
longings and personal safety," stated
Rick Davis, Chief of Police for the City
of Madison. A veteran of 26 years, 12 of
those as Chief, Davis has an intense de-
votion to keeping the community safe.
"Most crimes are committed by locals,
so numbers will increase and decrease
with their conviction and release,"
Davis added.
Davis is also keeping response time
as a top priority. "Two minute response
time is a goal we work hard to main-
tain, and by using our resources as effi-
ciently as possible, that goal won't
change as the community grows," says
Davis. "Everybody needs to protect

Halloween, Birthdays And Anniversaries


Highlight Our Week


Today, October 31st, is
Halloween. This is always
a fun day for children and
adults alike. Our children
have always enjoyed
throwing Halloween par-
ties, and this year will be
no exception. The grand-
children are already plan-
ning one.
As we know it today,
Halloween seems to have
begun with the ancient pa-
gans. Druids of Great
Britain who began their
year on November 1, at
which time witches and
hobgoblins were supposed
to have had their last fling
of the year.
With the coming of
Christianity, the "New
Year's Day" became "All
Saints Day," and the
evening before became
known as "All Hallows'
Eve." It is from this mix-
ture of superstition and
religion, that we get the
present Halloween with
its costumes, etc.
Scottish children first
carved jack-o-lanterns
from large turnips instead
of from pumpkins. Also,
in Scotland, people be-
lieved that women who
had sold their souls to the
devil changed into witches
on Halloween, and that
they flew up their chim-
neys on broomsticks, at-
tended by black cats.
It was the Irish who
started the custom of go-
ing from door. to door, ask-
ing for food or'money The'
j'trick or treat" custom
employed by children to-
day dates back to seven-
teenth century Ireland,
when peasants sought lux-
uries for a feast at the
doors of the wealthy;
however, the idea of a
householder forestalling a
prankish "trick" by com-
ing across with a "treat"
seems to be strictly an
American custom.
May all of our readers
enjoy Halloween today,
and may all children have
fun on this special day.

October Also Means
Birthday Candles and
Wedding/Anniversary
Time In Our Family

Happy Birthdays are
in order this week to The
Husband, who turned 69
years old on October 28th.
We got married on The
Husband's birthday, way
back in 1962. This year,
2007, is a "big" one for us,
as we mark our 45th Wed-
ding Anniversary.
I don't know if you've
ever read Linda Good-
man's Sun Signs book, but
the writer "warns" those
of us who are not Scorpios
,about those of you who
are. By "warning," I
mean, tells us their good
characteristics, and their
bad.
Scorpios' good quali-
ties are that they are mul-
ti-talented, hard-workers,
go-getters, exciting, full of
life, enthusiastic, and fun-
loving. That describes
The Husband to a "T."
Bad qualities of Scor-
pios are that they must al-
ways be in control, start
ten thousand projects at
once, and can't find
enough time to complete
them all. And, I
repeat,"They must always
have their way, or no way
at all."
My being a Pisces is
supposed to be the "per-
fect match" for a Scorpio.
Linda Goodman says that


Pisces people are easy-go-


ing, always want someone finished his stint in the
to be in control, other than military when we set "the

ing, exciting, loving, and
kind. In other words, I
was deeply in love with
him. We had a beautiful
wedding at 4:00 p.m. at the
First Baptist Church of
Madison.
Our wedding was a
lovely occasion. The day
was lovely and sunny, and
we had beautiful white
baskets of huge mums and
gladiolas, with cathedral
candelabra on all sides.
We were one of the
very first couples to marry
in the "new" First Baptist
Church. The previous
"Old" First Baptist
Church had been moved
around the corner, where
it still stands today.
The Husband and I
grew up in happy times,
when dating meant walk-
ing to the school dances
(at the old Madison High
School, located just across
the street from where my
family lived on W. Base St.,
walking home from
church and Training
Union, and going to the
movie theater to see
movies whose themes
were musicals, comedies,
and wholesome expres-
sions of love. There were
no "R" or "X" rated
movies back in the '50's
when we grew up. We
watched movies like The
Creature From the Black
Lagoon, and saw shoot-em-
ups of cowboys like- Roy
Rogers, the Lone Ranger
and Gene Autry. Back
then, we went to the Swan
Theater, which sat in the
now vacant hole between
the old Amerigas business
and the First Presbyterian
Church on Range St.
.We had our first date
March 20, 1954, and we dat-
ed all through high school
and college, about 9-and-a-
half years total, at the
time we set our wedding
date. The Husband had


Magazine at that time,
married us. Dr. Stracner
had been the minister at
the Madison First Baptist
Church, and had married
both of our sets of par-
ents: Buford and Lucile
Selman, and Harvey and
Cora Lee Greene.
Assisting Dr. Stracner
at the wedding ceremony
was the Rev. Jack Shaw,
who was the pastor of the
Madison First Baptist
Church in 1962.
This 45th Anniversary
is so very special to us, as
we have had 45 wonderful
years together, have had-
four beautiful babies,
eleven wonderful grand-
children, many very dear
friends through the years,
so many exciting mo-
ments in our lives as we
climbed the ladder of the
Florida Press Association
in the '60's, and became
President and First Lady
of the Newspaper Associa-
tion in Florida. We later
became the representa-
tives to the National News-
paper Association, and
traveled and met many
wonderful news associates
all over the United States
through the years. We lat-
er did the same thing in
the Shrine Association,
and became Potentate and
First Lady of Marzuq
Shrine, traveling for
Shrine and all it means to
crippled children, and
again, meeting wonderful
people all over the world.
We have met Presidents of
the United States, met all
the Governors of the State
of Florida, walked and
talked with hundreds of
politians and other world
leaders, and have had an
amazing time.
But, the most impor-
tant part of our lives has
been that we were able to
start a business right here
in our home county, and


be able to stay "at home"
and make a living for our
family, and raise our chil-
dren and grandchildren in
Madison County, our
home.
What more could we
possibly ask for?
4 As in the lifetime of
the Greenes, even our wed-
ding day had its excite-
ment. The groomsmen
"kidnapped" me because
The Husband wouldn't tell
them where our car was so
they could "fix it up," as
he had done to so many of
his friends. He never did
tell them where the car
was, and the "kidnappers"
drove me all over the coun-
ty for about an hour before
they finally returned me
to my home so I could get
ready for the departure for
our honeymoon to the
mountains of North Geor-
gia and North Carolina.
And, you ask me --
when did your "exciting"
life begin together?
The excitement at the
wedding was just a prereq-
uisite of our "exciting"
life to come. It started on
our wedding day, and it
hasn't slowed down yet.
But, we wouldn't have had
it any other way
As Bob Hope always
ended his tours with his
song, "Thanks For the
Memories." We have had
our share, too. And, the
wonderful thing is we
are still having them.
I hope to one day write
a book of our experiences
in the news business. The
Husband is writing one
entitled, The Bellyside of
Me and My Trashy
Friends. (He is getting
calls from all over the
country from friends
telling him they can, and
will, pay him to "leave
them out" of the book).
As we grow older now,
you won't hear The Hus-
band and I complaining
about growing old, or be-
ginning to "feel our age."
Just think of the peo-
ple who haven't had the
wonderful 55 years of
friendship that The Hus-
band and I have shared, or
the marvelous memories
we have had during our 45
years of marriage, nor
been able to celebrate "69"
years of living in beauti-
ful Madison County
If you see us this
week, don't wish us "Hap-
py Anniversary" or "Hap-
py Birthday." Just wish us
many more years of hap-
piness to share together.
I just hope we live to be
100 years old, and we can
celebrate many, many
more Anniversaries, and
Birthdays together.

now.... See 'ya.

October Is National

Physical Therapy Month
Dear Editor,
October is National Physical Therapy Month, but some-
how I am feeling less special this year in light of the cur-
rent legislative efforts. Physical therapy for the Medicare
population can help people recover more completely from
a variety of illnesses, injuries and surgeries, but it looks
like our senior citizens will be out of luck if they have an
illness AND an injury in the same year!
The legislature is trying to enforce a cap on physical
therapy to which there will be no exceptions. This means
if someone has a total knee replacement in January and
uses most of the physical therapy allowance for the year,
but in November they have a stroke, they can't have the
therapy And since the cap also includes speech therapy
'they could not have this service either (unless they pay for
it out of their pocket). Currently this patient would fall
into and "exception category" and they could be given
treatment. The proposed change would abolish the excep-
tions.
Congress is also proposing a 9.9% cut in the 2008 fee
schedule. Medicare is demanding more one-on-one PT/pa-
tient contact and more documentation. I run a business
which has to pay the higher costs to heat and cool the
building, and am a mother contributing to the operation of
a household with rising costs also. A 10% cut in Medicare
reimbursement could be the straw that broke this camel's
back!
Believe it or not, our state legislators track where their
constituents stand on issues by zip code, and every phone
call, letter or fax they receive is counted. I would love to
see Madison show up on Senator Bill Nelson's register as a
county AGAINST the proposed Medicare changes! His of-
fice can be reached in Tallahassee at 942-8415 or in Wash-
ington at 202-224-5274.
Thanks for your help!

Sincerely,
Kim Sanders, Physical Therapist




Do You Have A Few More Minutes?,
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Over the past 30 days, this reporter has had the priv-
ilege of visiting or covering several dozen civic and so-
cial events sponsored by community organizations
headed by Executive Boards made up of Madison Coun-
ty leadership. Typically, city and county officials,
NFCC, the banks, the realtors, and the passionate semi-
retired, join each other selflessly to address the issue of
the day.
One honestly could not give sufficient accolades to
match the mansions in heaven these volunteers deserve
for their over and above contributions to help those who
need it so desperately However, moving from meeting
'to meeting, leader to leader, quote to quote, exposed an-
other very evident condition.
In addition to their "over and above" contribution,
the "over and over" contribution was equally present.
In other words, the same people showed up again and
again. These disciples of community care participate in
everything.
Of course part of this phenomenon is obviously the
size of the community And while none of these volun-
teers have ever complained, quite the contrary actually,
a huge disparity exists that requires remedy if 'these
committees are to most effectively issue marching or-
ders to deliver their objectives.
The void is simply the huge lack of soldiers. There
are local organizations whose steering committee is
three times the size of the staff that runs it. Typically,
and to get the absolute best results possible, the hired
staff and volunteers of an organization, the "soldiers"
need to outnumber executive leadership five, ten or even
twenty to one.
When schools or churches have a fundraiser or
event for instance, total parent or member participation
represents dozens of "soldiers" for every "officer" orga-
nizing ,the event. But when these other community
causes arise, and again, there are dozens of them with
the most noble and necessary objectives, the over-
stretched local leadership is asked over and over, "Do
you have a few more minutes?"
It's like the story of the
food rotting on the docks
n Of The Week because there wasn't any-
body to deliver it, while the
diplomats debated to what
to do. It appears that com-
munity generals have
mapped out the route to so-
lutions, but it will in-
evitably require soldiers to
accomplish the mission.
Ultimately, it may be hu-
man resources that are
scarcer than financial re-
sources.
In the meantime, huge ku-
dos to these officials of
J many hats; thanks to the

trators of NFCC; hail to

vival meeting.
Press Release about Clyde Annandale
Few, if any, entertainers in the Atlanta area ap-
proach show business like Clyde Annandale. He writes,
directs, produces and performs his own plays and sto-
ries. WSB TV did a feature story on this one of a kind
storyteller. Annandale masterfully portrays fifty-two
distinct characters ranging from his well-known one-
eyed seaman in Horses to Jesus in The Upper Room.
Twenty-seven of his stage plays have had successful
runs during the decade since Clyde's return home from
15 years in Los Angeles. His work has taken him far and
wide. He played King David for Benjamin Netanyauh at
the 50th anniversary of the statehood of Israel. Clyde
portrayed Jesus before the Mayor of Jerusalem and five
thousand of his friends in the Jerusalem Convention
Center.
But Clyde makes it clear that his acting skill is the
tool he uses to recapture the raw power of the life of Je-
sus. Clyde lived, performed, and researched in
Jerusalem muoh of 1998- 2001. He wrote many of his
scripts sitting on the shores of the Sea of Galilee and in
cafes in Jerusalem. His portrayals evaporate two mil-
lennium of theological discussion and suddenly the au-

LOUISIANA


Let me begin
with a dis-
claimer: I have
never lived in the
state of
Louisiana. I've
visited a few
times and driven
across the state
often, but .never
lived there. My
Dad spent the bet-


National

Security
Joe Boyles
Guest Columnist
MM---I- ---


ter part of 1943 in western Louisiana
around Leesville teaching artillery bat-
talions how to bombard the enemy before
he shipped off to Germany to practice
his trade against the Nazis. That is the
extent of my experience with the Bayou
State.
However, in my study of civics and
government, I have long been aware that
the most corrupt politics at state level re-
side in Louisiana. New Jersey is making
up ground and there are localities like
Chicago where political corruption is
part of the ingrained culture, but at the
state level, Louisiana leads the pack.
It has been that way for a long, long
time. I don't know if the corruption has
its roots in the French culture or if the
connection is just happenstance. In the
early part of the last century, Louisiana
politics thrust itself on the national
stage with Huey Long, the man Franklin
Roosevelt described as the "most danger-
ous man in the country" Share our
Wealth was the name of Long's move-
ment as he expanded beyond Louisiana's
borders and promised to put a "chicken
in every pot." An assassin ended the
Kingfish's career, but the Long family
continued to rule Louisiana politics for
generations to come.
I believe it was Governor Edwin Ed-
wards who, when asked if he was con-
cerned that his latest conviction for cor-
ruption would harm his political career,
said, "There are only two things which
can harm a Louisiana politician's career:
being caught in a hotel room with a live
boy or dead girl." That pretty well sums
up what elections have been about in
Louisiana forever. While corrupt politi-
cians raided the treasury and let the
good times roll, they whistled past the
graveyard.
When Hurricane Katrina bashed into
the Central Gulf Coast in August 2005,
the result in Louisiana was predictable.
You might recall that the storm walked
across South Florida as a Category 1 be-
fore emerging into the Gulf of Mexico
and growing into a mon-
ster. At first, it appeared
that New Orleans would J
take a direct hit; then the
storm veered toward the .::,
northeast and smashed t*e.
into the Mississippi Gulf ...... -
Coast with nothing less Y.T -iI


/ than a 28-foot
storm surge.
!. New Or-
leans breathed a
collective sigh of
S, -,, relief as it ap-
peared to have
been spared un-
til the counter
K clockwise winds
on the backside
of the storm
roared across Lake Pontchartrain and
breached the levees. The city, long
threatened by waters from the Mississip-
pi to the south and the huge shallow lake
to the north, flooded. More than a thou-
sand residents of the Crescent City died
in the disaster.
The main stream media and Democ-
rats focused their criticism on George
Bush, in part to deflect blame from local
politicians like Governor Kathleen Blan-
co and Mayor Ray Nagin, who failed mis-
erably to prepare their citizens and re-
spond to the disaster. The aerial view of
more than a thousand yellow school bus-
es in a flooded parking lot that could have
been used to evacuate victims of the
storm was visual proof of the ineptitude
brought about by more.than a century of
political corruption. The difference be-
tween how local officials failed in
Louisiana two years ago and how well
their California counterparts responded
to the firestorms last week stands in
stark contrast. In rebuilding from the
storm, it is the same story hard-hit Mis-
sissippi is far ahead of Louisiana.
Amazingly, the remaining people of
New Orleans once again anointed Nagin
as mayor, which as best I can figure is a
reflection of how weak the city's political
structure is, but at the state level, there is
a new wind blowing.
Last week, the people of Louisiana
rejected more than a century of political
graft and cronyism by turning to the Re-
publicans and electing Congressman
Bobby Jindal as governor. Now Jindal
stands out in a crowd he is a first gen-
eration' American born of Indian immi-
grants only 36 years ago. He is a very
smart fellow and principally .conserva-
tive.
Governor Jindal has a huge task in
front of him. Political corruption is well
imbedded in Louisiana and cleaning it
up will not be easy or short-lived. I wish
him well. Even more, I wish the people of
Louisiana well. They deserve, we all de-
serve a better, more responsive and hon-
est government. But, what


we get is what we elect,
and in the Bayou state, the
people have repeatedly
elected representatives
who belonged behind bars
rather than under the cap-
ital dome.

The Madison Kiwanis
Club met on October 25
and welcomed guest
speaker Craig Wilson, in-
vited by David Driggers.
Wilson, :who is with,
Healthy Families, which
covers Madison, Jefferson,
Taylor, Hamilton, and
Lafayette Counties, spoke
briefly about his cause.
The nationally accredited,
community based volun-
tary program is used to
prevent child abuse and
neglect, improve maternal
and child health, improve


parent and child interac-
tion, and increase family
self-sufficiency
The program starts
out with weekly home vis-
its, which build trust and
help the family to accept a
family support ,Worker.
The visits can :then be
moved to every other
week, monthly, and quar-
terly Healthy Families
identifies families with
risk factors for abuse and
neglect and parents are
taught to make eye contact
and talk to their child.
Wilson said that it may
be hard for some to be-

must be taught to love
their children. The par-
ents must be taught to care
for and nurture their baby
because it doesn't come
naturally 'to them because
of how they may have
been raised.
The idea with Healthy
Families is to initiate ser-
vices early Wilson said
that families are eligible
for services up to two
weeks after birth but no
later. A long-term commit-
ment to the program is re-
quired, and 81 percent of
participants who complete
the program have im-
proved education levels,
receive job training, or be-
come gainfully employed.
"As of this year," Wil-
son commented, "every

Clubs had a very special
joint meeting to dedicate
Live Oak trees in memory
of deceased club members.
Before the dedication,
the ladies and guests en-
joyed a beautiful devotion.
given by Woman's Club
Chaplain Florida Smith.
Florida spoke about envi-
ronmental conservation,
the joy that God's gift of
trees brings people, and
Willie Clare' Copeland's
contributions to the envi-
ronmental welfare of Madi-
son by planting trees. .'- '
: Judy Haire read the 41
treasurer's report, and a .
,.short business meeting.
Was conducted. Jackie The ladies went across
Johnson, president, stated
that with some help from the city and club level
fundraisers, the leaking roof might be fixed!
The use of the Woman's Club building as a voting
precinct was discussed further, and while the supervi-
sor of elections is willing to pay to have the building
cleaned, the club has decided that because of liability is-
sues, it wouldn't be in their best interests. The county
contacted a spokesperson for the club, stating that
they'd be responsible for anything that happened in the
building. The club contends that if someone were to
sue, they could bring legal action against the county as
well as the club.
On September 14 16, the GFWC convention was
held in Orlando. The ladies who attended learned about
the upcoming year's projects, and have done so much to
prepare. Ladies also need to begin work on their crafts
for the show February 14 and 16.
GFWC Madison Woman's Club and Greenville
Woman's Club will join together on a reporting work-
shop that will be held sometime in November. Also, the
committee recommended that the club participate in
preserving the history of the Woman's Club through the
1895 Society. The cost of participation is only $189.50.
Rick's Piano Service, out of Tallahassee, was kind
enough to tune the piano for the Woman's Club.

spoke of her childhood ex-
periences and lauded the
services provided by the

reared in an abusive envi-
ronment and credits agen-
cies of the United Way
with assisting her to
achieve her success in life.
She was accompanied by


Allen Cherry and applaud-
ed by all. Madison County
Sheriff Pete Bucher added
to her remarks to rein-
force the need for the so-
cial services underwritten
by the United Way
In the absence of the
Club President, Capt. Mor-
ris Steen (USN-ret), Alston

Stalvey has been the
instructor of the year at
North Florida Communi-
ty College several times,
and with her upbeat atti-
tude and quick wit, there's
no wonder.. Stalvey, the
daughter of Jimmy and
Princess Roebuck, is a
psychology instructor as
well as assistant depart-
ment chair.
"Online education,"
Stalvey said, "meets the
needs of today's stu-
dents." She brought along
an example of an online
course called MyPsych-
Lab, an interactive pro-
gram that allows students
all the benefits of a class-
room, well, without it.
With online classes,
students never have to
leave their house they
don't even have to get
dressed, although cloth-
ing is probably preferable.
Stalvey demonstrated
some of the fun features of

the MyPsychLab eBook,
students are whirled into
games that test knowl-
edge. Stalvey's example
involved dropping the
name of famous psycholo-
gists into categories based
on their field of expertise.
B.F Skinner = behavior-
ism, while Sigmund Freud
= psychoanalysis.
"The worst thing you
can do to a student is to
be unavailable," Stalvey


stated in response to a
question. While her on-
line classes allow stu-
dents to complete work
from home, Stalvey is
only a phone call away to
answer questions. In
fact, she is so dedicated to
her work that she even
gives students her cell

Avoid These
Frightening Investment Moves
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Once again, it's Halloween. If you're an adult,
you're probably more amused than frightened by the
variety of ghouls,' ghosts and goblins you'll see running
around this week. However, although Halloween itself
may not be particularly alarming, you can find some
things in life that are truly scary such as making bad
investment moves. Here are a few of these alarming
errors to avoid: .
Investing too little in your 401(k) If you have a
401(k) or similar employer-sponsored plan, you owe it
to yourself to take full advantage of it. Your contribu-
tions are generally made with pre-tax dollars, so the
more you put in each year, the lower your taxable
income. Plus, your earnings have the potential to grow
on a tax-deferred basis. Furthermore, you may have a
dozen or more investment options within your 401(k),
so you can spread your dollars around in a way that
reflects your risk tolerance and retirement goals. At the
very least, contribute enough to earn your employer's
match, if one is offered. And try to increase your annu-
al contributions every time your salary goes up.
Ignoring your IRA Even if you have a 401(k),
you can still open an IRA. Many people do this but
then forget about it. For 2007, you can put $4,000 into
an IRA, or $5,000 if you're 50 or older. A traditional
IRA offers the potential for tax-free earnings, while a
Roth IRA can grow tax-free, provided you've had your
account for at least five years and you don't take with-
drawals until you are at least 59-1/2. And you can fund
an IRA with virtually any investment you choose.
Investing too conservatively Many investors are
so uncomfortable with the volatility of the stock market
that they put much of their money in more "conserva-
tive" investments, such as Treasury bills, corporate
bonds and certificates of deposit. It's true that these
types of securities will, in general, offer more preserva-
tion of principal than stocks, but they will not provide
much growth potential. So, if you've "loaded up" on
these fixed-income vehicles, you could lose purchasing
power, over time. Over the long term, only stocks have
historically outpaced the rate of inflation, although past
performance is not an indication of future results.
Consequently, if you are saving and investing for retire-
ment, you will certainly need an appropriate amount of
stocks in your portfolio.
Chasing "hot" stocks If you follow a tip on a
"hot" stock, you could get burned. Why? For one thing,
by the time you buy the stock, it may already be cool-
ing down. Even more importantly, it simply may not be
appropriate for your individual risk tolerance and long-
term goals.
"Timing" the market If you could always "buy
low and sell high," you'd unquestionably make a for-
tune as an investor. Unfortunately, no one can really
predict when market highs and lows will occur and
you can rack up a lot of expenses buying and selling
your investments in a vain attempt to "time" the market.
You're much better off by buying quality investments
and holding them for the long term, or at least until your
needs change.

There's no trick to avoiding all these investment
mistakes and if you do, you may just find your invest-
ment statement is not so spooky to read.

Alan Fogg, speaking
on behalf of his brother
Steve Fogg, and brother-
in-law Richard Rentz,
thanked all involved, from
the county officials who
brought the water and
wastewater infrastructure
required to operate the fa-
cility, to Jimmie Davis
who sold them the proper-
ty that was destroyed in a
fire shortly afterwards.
The Foggs and Rentz
own Land O'Sun Manage-
ment, under which they
own and operate 27 Fast

big win for all involved,"
Alan Fogg noted. "It
means revenue for the

portunity for us," he

The informal consen-
sus is that this collabora-

absence of basic infra-

ciencies to labor availabil-

Getting Married in Florida:
The Marriage License
Where do you get one? A couple who intends to be married
in Florida may obtain a marriage license from Monday through Friday,
between the hours of 8am to 5:30pm at any Office of the Clerk of the
Circuit Court. Hours may vary so be sure to call ahead. The license
does not need to be issued in the county that the ceremony will take
place in. The ceremony must take place in the State of Florida to be-
considered valid. .
Is there a waiting period? There is no waiting period for
Forida residents that have both completed a state sanctioned marriage
preparation course within the last year. There is a 3 day waiting peri-
od for Florida residents who have not taken the course. In addition
prospective brides and grooms are now required to read a 16-page book-
let which describes situations such as how a court would divide their
assets and information about child support payments. Court Clerks are
allowed by law to waive the three-day waiting period in the event of a
"hardship" case. Also, the waiting period does not apply to non-Florida
residents.
How long is the license valid? A marriage license is valid
for 60 days.
How much does it cost? The fee is $88.50, payable in cash
only. Couples who have completed the state-sanctioned marriage
preparation course within the past 12 months are only charged $56.00.
(Note: Fees for marriage licenses are set by the Florida Legislature,
and are subject to change)
Is a premarital physical exam required? No premarital ex-
amination or blood test is required to obtain a marriage license in
Florida.
What are the age and consent requirements for mi-
nors? Both applicants must be at least 18 years of age to apply for a
marriage license in the State of Florida. If an individual is under 18
years of age but older than 16 years of age, a marriage license can be
obtained with parental consent. If a parent has sole custody or the oth-
er parent is deceased, the permission of one parent is sufficient. If a
person is under the age of 16, the marriage license has to be issued by
a county judge, with or without parental permission. If a minor's par-
ents are both deceased and there is not an appointed guardian,
he/she may apply for a marriage license. A minor who has been
previously married may also apply for a license. A minor who
swears that they have a child or are expecting a baby, can apply
for a license if the pregnancy has been verified by a written
statement from a licensed physician. A county court judge may
at his/her discretion issue or not issue a license for them to mar-
ry
Proof of Age and Identity Both parties for the intended
marriage must provide the Clerk's Office a valid photo ID. Ac-
cepted forms of ID's are driver's license, State Identification
Card, Valid Passport, a 1-94 card, Government or Military Iden-
tification Card along with a valid Social Security Card.
Previous Marriages If either party has ever been married
r and divorced, or widowed, the date of the divorce or date of the
spouse's death must be supplied. If the divorce or spouse's death
occurred within the past 30 days, a certified copy of the divorce
decree or death certificate is required.

1. Make sureyou are getting the right vehicle.
This seems obvious, but you could wind up an un-
happy car owner if you haven't thought carefully about
how many people and how much luggage or gear you
need to carry.
2. Assess the worth of your old car.
Whether you plan to trade it in or sell it, your cur-
rent car can be an important factor in your budget.
Checking the right Web site and maybe your local
newspaper will give you a realistic valuation. Selling it
directly-instead of just trading it may also mean a size-
able difference in what you get for it, though it may
take a while longer to reap the proceeds.
3..Decide whether new or used is best for you.
Cars are built better now than in the past, so used
cars make a lot of sense. But if you get a rebate or oth-
er cost break, the math may be on the side of a new ve-
hicle.
4. Consider whether leasing or buying makes
more sense.
Leasing provides lower monthly payments than
buying with an auto loan. But it's not for everybody. If
you don't have money for a down payment or if you
trade your car every two or three years, you may be a
good candidate for a lease.
5. Do your homework and set your target
price.
The Internet has made it easier than ever to find
out the dealer's cost for each vehicle and its options.

it doesn't, check for math
errors in your checkbook
register, such as reversed
numbers (e.g., $53 instead
of $35), subtracting a de-
posit instead of adding it,
adding a check written in-
stead of subtracting it, au-
tomatic payments that you
forgot to record, etc.


r The Fine Print

That's the first step to getting the best possible deal.
6. Shop for money before you shop for the car.
If you plan to buy with a loan, check your credit
union or local bank quotes online to find the lowest
rate. Getting a pre-approved loan will give you added
confidence in negotiating a good price.
7. Negotiating a lease.
In the complicated world of leasing, the dealer will
have the upper hand unless you learn the jargon and
how to negotiate the various segments of a lease deal.
8. Negotiate a purchase.
If you are doing it yourself, get bids from several
dealers, keeping the focus on the dealer's invoice price,
which you will know from your research. You may also
be able to get bids without going to showroom after
showroom.
9. If you hate haggling, consider using a car-
shopping service.
Auto-buying services, such as Web sites or discount
clubs, make things easy with pretty good, no-haggle
prices. But with most of them, you get quotations from
only one dealer. Consumer services that shop several
dealers near you may deliver even better prices.
10. Don't let the deal-closer close out your sav-
ings.
The finance manager isn't there just for the paper-
work. He or she wants to sell you high-profit financial
and mechanical add-ons. These are seldom worth the
money


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.

I


Don't Underestimate

Your Ability to Build

Retirement Savings
Many of your fellow Americans just don't think they
are capable of building a reasonable amount of-savings
for their retirement years. Should you .be equally
gloomy? Not if you save and invest early and oftenrJust
how pessimistic are people about building their net
worth? Consider these findings from a recent survey
sponsored by the Consumier Federation of America and
the Financial Planning Association:
Only 26 percent of the adults surveyed think they
could accumulate $200,000 in net worth in their.lifetime.
A whopping 21 percent of those surveyed said winning
the lottery would be the most practical strategy to accu-
mulate several hundred thousand dollars.
In looking at these figures, two things jump out: The
first group may be overly pessimistic and the second
group is totally unrealistic. In fact, a person's chances of
winning huge in the Powerball are abouf 1 in 120 mil-
lion, give or take a few hundred thousand. So, if you are
doubtful that you'll accumulate enough money to retire,
and you can't count on the lottery, what can you doto-im-
prove your savings outlook? Here are a few suggestions:
Set some goals. You will find it easier 0to, i'ntefor
your retirement if you know how much money you will
need to reach your goals. Try to visualize the.type of, re-
tirement lifestyle you'll want. Will you travel:tVolnin-
teer? Open your own small business? A qualify a -
cial professional can help you set a general "'ipeHtag
on your goals.and show you about how much yot 4.
need to save each year and what sort of investment re-
turn you will need to achieve to meet your objectives.
Put time on your side. The earlier you start savin.iand
investing, the better your chances of building the re- ,
sources you'll need to enjoy a comfortable retirement.
You might be surprised at how much you can accumu-
late over time. For example, if you can afford to put
away $100 a month in a tax-deferred investment (such as
a traditional IRA) that earned a hypothetical 7 percent a
year, you would accumulate more than $121,000, after 30
years. Even after you pay taxes on your withdrawals,
you'll still have a sizable sum.
Take advantage of your employer's retirement plan. If
your employer offers a 401(k) or other tax-advantaged re-
tirement plan, take full advantage of it. Every time you
get a raise, try to increase your annual contributions. At
the very minimum, contribute enough to earn your em-
ployer's match, if one is offered.
Avoid heavy debt burdens. Debt is one of the
biggest threats to your ability to accumulate the money
you'll need for retirement. Every dollar you use to pay
off a high-interest credit card is a dollar that could be
used for investing. Of course, it's not easy for many of
us to make ends meet these days, but do whatever you
can to live within your means and avoid racking up a
huge debt load that will take you years to pay off.
By following these suggestions, you should gain con-
fidence, over time, in your ability to increase your net
worth to levels that once seemed unimaginable to you.
And you can save money on those lottery tickets, too.

NORTH FLORIDA FAIR




North Florida Fair Gets A New Look


The 66th annual
North Florida Fair will
take place from Thursday,
November 8 through Sun-
day, November 18, at the
North Florida Fair-
grounds in Tallahassee.
The James E. Strates
Shows, a carnival compa-
ny with a history dating
back to 1923, has been
contracted to provide
rides and games for fair-
goers.
The North Florida
Fair ended a long term re-
lationship with Reithoffer
Shows to go with Strates
which plays the New York
State Fair in Syracuse
and other fairs along the


East Coast.
"We wanted a new
look at the fair this year. I
searched for a company
with a progressive man-
agement team who also
felt customer service was
as important as I do," said
Mark Harvey, the fair's
general manager. "Strates
was that company. My
goal is to greatly improve
customer service to the
fair's patrons."
Strates Shows, Inc. is
the only railroad carnival
still traveling in the Unit-
ed States today

based company uses a 51-
car train to transport the

Tiny Radioactive Spheres Effectively Treat

Cancer That Has Spread To The Liver


Placing tiny radioactive spheres di-

"new tumors developed in patients who
responded and we find this to be very

Vallow presented results of the
study at the annual meeting of the
American Society for Therapeutic Ra-

She says her report is one of the
first to sum up an initial clinical expe-
rience with the therapy, known as SIR-
Spheres microspheres, which was ap-
proved for use by the federal Food and
Drug Administration in 2002. "We are
trying to determine the clinical situa-
tions in which it is best to use these mi-
crospheres," Vallow says.
The therapy uses millions of tiny
polymer beads each one of which is
about one-third the diameter of a hu-

less active with less contrast uptake on

The majority of patients had mini-
mal side effects from the treatment, she
says. Cancer progressed in two patients
and they died within three months. But
for the patients who responded, by the
end of a 10-month follow-up period, no
new tumors were detected, Vallow says.
"Liver function tests in the responding
patients have become normal or have
stabilized."
The researchers say the treatment
works best in patients that have good
blood flow to their tumors. "Further
evaluation with longer follow-up will
help clarify the benefit of this novel
treatment," Vallow says.

patients are doing for their various problems," he says,
"and undertake objective, controlled studies to prove
whether or not these treatments are beneficial."
The study authors say that although their goal was
not to assess the effectiveness of placebos, their results
did support the benefit of placebos in the treatment of
pain. They also note that 80 percent of the 409 partici-
pants who answered an initial survey question about I

Parkinson's Medication Appears to Trigger .Excessive Gambling


Habitual, compulsive gambling with losses up to
$200,000 within six months by those who previously
never or only occasionally gambled recreationally has
been tied to Parkinson's disease drugs called dopamine
agonists, according to a new Mayo Clinic case series
analysis to be published in Archives of Neurology.
"This is a striking effect," says J. Eric Ahlskog,
M.D., Ph.D., Mayo Clinic neurologist who treated most
of the patients in the series. "Pathological gambling in-
duced by a drug is really quite unusual."
The good news, according to Dr. Ahlskog and M.
Leann Dodd, M.D., Mayo Clinic psychiatrist who spear-
headed the analysis, is that excessive gambling behav-
ior only occurs in a small number of patients given the
drugs, and it can be stopped as suddenly as it came on.
"It's a very rare side effect and reversible if you get off
the drug, but you have to make the association," says
Dr. Ahlskog.
The Mayo Clinic neurologists treating the Parkin-
son's patients reported in the case series analysis
learned about the gambling issues of the 11 patients in
the series during routine clinic visits. Four had never
gambled before starting dopamine agonist treatment.
"Most of the time, the patient came in for a routine
exam and would sheepishly admit 'I've been gambling
too much,' or family members would mention that
their loved, one had been gambling excessively, that
this behavior was totally out of character for them,
and that the gambling was causing problems in their
lives," says Dr. Dodd.
The researchers then assessed the relationship of
the gambling behavior to the patients' medications. All
were taking dopamine agonist medications at levels
appropriate for Parkinson's treatment, and eight of the
patients also were taking the drug carbidopa/lev-
odopa. The researchers located existing case reports in
medical literature associating Parkinson's disease
treatment with pathological gambling, and they com-
pared their patients' experiences with those reported
in this literature. Dr. Ahlskog and colleagues then
found that some of the patients stopped gambling
when they discontinued use of the dopamine agonist.
The researchers also learned that six of the Mayo
Clinic patients developed additional behavioral issues
which subsided when they quit the dopamine agonist
medication, including compulsive eating with weight
gain, increased alcohol consumption and hypersexual-
ity (increased interest in pornography, extramarital af-
fairs or increased sex drive bothersome to the spouse).
Dr. Ahlskog cites anecdotes of patients such as a
seemingly responsible, married professional who had
never gambled before, but began watching gambling
shows on television and then gambling on the Internet
from his work site after starting dopamine agonist
treatment. He lost several thousand dollars. This be-
havior abruptly stopped within a few days of stopping
the dopamine agonist drug. A clergyman sheepishly
confided by phone after an office visit that he had an
obsession with gambling, which started after begin-
ning a dopamine agonist medication. Another patient
lost over $100,000 as well as her first marriage due to
her compulsive gambling. She could never drive by a
casino without going in, and each time she shopped for
groceries, she was compelled to purchase multiple
scratch-off lottery tickets.
Parkinson's patients have lower-than-normal levels
of brain dopamine. The primary treatment for many
years has been administration of levodopa (car-
bidopa/levodopa), which replenishes brain dopamine
levels; this is considered to be the gold standard thera-
py for Parkinson's disease. Dopamine agonists are also
used in Parkinson's disease treatment; they mimic the
effect of dopamine in the brain. They are not as potent
as levodopa, but produce a longer-lasting response.
Dopamine agonist treatment is sometimes used by
itself early in the course of Parkinson's disease or in
addition to treatment with levodopa. The dopamine ag-
onist drugs associated with pathological gambling ap-
pear to be those that specifically target the D3
dopamine receptors, according to Dr. Dodd. These re-
ceptors are located in the limbic system of the brain,
which controls the emotions, affect and one's internal
"reward system." When this area of the brain is over-
stimulated, it can lead to more impulsive behaviors
and produce a feeling of pleasure from even a previ-
ously undesirable activity, such as compulsive gam-
bling or alcohol consumption.
The Mayo Clinic researchers noted one type of
dopamine agonist in particular continually surfaced
as a treatment for the series' patients: pramipexole.
They hypothesize this drug was implicated due to its
strong stimulation of the brain's dopamine D3 recep-
tors. A group of researchers at one medical center, in-
cluding Erika Driver Dunckley, M.D.,-now a neurolo-
gist at Mayo Clinic, found pathological gambling in 1.5
percent of 529 Parkinson's patients treated with
pramipexole in a retrospective study of all Parkinson's
patients seen at the center over one year. This suggests
that the problem does not occur frequently and that
most people treated with pramipexole experience no
such effect, according to Dr. Dodd.
The Mayo Clinic researchers explain that be-
cause pathological gambling is so infrequently associ-
ated with dopamine agonist treatment, this potential
side effect would not be a reason to stop prescribing it.
Rather, they urge Parkinson's patients taking
dopamine agonist medications to be very candid about
gambling problems that may arise after starting the
medication.
"I'd want patients to be very forthcoming with their
doctors about their gambling," says Dr. Dodd. "If they


or family members detect any behaviors that, don't
seem characteristic or that begin to stray from their
usual behavior increased or problematic gambling,
excessive eating or. alcohol consumption they
should bring it up to their neurologists. If you recog-
nize this association early, you can possibly prevent fi-


nancial ruin or destruction of relationships."
Dr. Ahlskog indicated he now tries to open the
door for his Parkinson's patients to discuss gam-
bling as a medication side effect by mentioning the
potential when prescribing the medication and urg-
ing patients to tell him if they experience such ef-
fects. He also mentions the possible gambling issue
with all new patients who are already taking a


dopamine agonist. He emphasizes that pathological
gambling linked to dopamine agonists is reversible
as long as the association is recognized.
Although physicians frequently prescribe
pramipexole for restless legs syndrome, the Mayo
Clinic researchers believe the lower doses used
pose little danger of it prompting pathological gam-
bling.

November Is Lung Cancer Awareness Month


By Gloria Linnertz
November is not my favorite month. So many times
in November my husband, Joe, and I had to put on our
badge of courage and faith to make it through difficult
situations. It was November 2, 1979, that Joe had his
first triple bypass surgery On the night of November
30, 1992, Joe passed out in the shower after returning
home from work. We discovered in the hospital that he
had lost over half of his blood from taking aspirin as a
blood thinner over the past 13 years. Twenty years after
his first bypass, on November 11,1999, Joe had his sec-
ond heart surgery
Of course, we were so thankful to God that these se-
rious conditions resulted in successful recovery In
spite and because of all of this, Joe remained a very ac-
tive person with dedicated exercise routines of walking
everyday He followed a low fat, low cholesterol diet,
and of course quit smoking in 1979. He loved to tell
jokes and make people laugh. He was my light and
strength.
Ironically, it was November 2, 2005, when we found
out that Joe's liver enzymes were elevated. After many
tests, we were devastated when told that Joe had lung
cancer that had spread to his liver ,and lungs. How
could this have happened? Where did it come from? We
needed our badge of courage and faith more than ever
this November. Joe's oncologist said that the two major
causes of lung cancer are smoking and radon. Joe had
not smoked for 27 years.
One month after Joe's death, I found that we had
been living with an invisible killer-radon. It is odor-
less and tasteless; it is a radioactive gas found every-
where worldwide; it causes lung cancer. Former smok-

ers or current smokers
are at a much greater
risk of lung cancer when
living with high levels of
radon. Radon is fickle.
Your neighbor's house
may have a low level of.
radon, while your house
may be high.
ONLY A TEST CAN
TELL. If someone had
just told us about the
deadly power of radon
and how easy it is to test
and mitigate, we would
have done so. Ignorance
is certainly not bliss, it
can be deadly. I decided at
that time that I would
dedicate myself to the
cause of radon aware-
ness.

J I .T ,' . .... 3 -, ,..,-


With the strong support of my State Representative,
Dan Reitz, and information and support from organiza-
tions and individuals concerned about radon in Illinois
and other states throughout the nation, the Illinois Leg-
islature passed The Radon Awareness Act (HB1425). It
states that at the point of sale of a house the buyer
.must be notified that the property may present expo-
sure to dangerous levels of indoor radon gas that may
place the occupants at risk of developing radon-in-
duced lung cancer. A warning statement must be in-
cluded, "Radon, a Class A human carcinogen, is the
leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and the
second leading cause overall." The seller must provide
the buyer with any information on radon test results
showing elevated levels of radon. A statement from the
Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) must
be included that strongly recommends that all home-
buyers have an indoor radon test performed prior to
purchase or taking occupancy and mitigation per-
formed if high levels are found. A pamphlet entitled
"Radon Testing Guidelines for Real Estate Transac-
tions" prepared by IEMA must be given to the buyer by
the seller.
I am very grateful for this law; however, more is
needed. Mandatory testing of all homes before the sale
is my goal. Schools, day care centers, and nursing
homes also need required testing.
Everyone's homeneeeds to be tested for radon. The
US government has set the radon action level at 4.0 pic-

Lung cancer takes the lives of about 162,000 eacl

speak for those who no longer can and we urge you t
use this November to .test for radon; it may be the
month to save your life, or that of your loved one.

Keeping 'lie uerms


Chances are, when
you're burrowed under the
covers with a box of tis-
sues by your bedside, you
turn even greener with
envy thinking of those peo-
ple who seem to never get
pick. Want to be one of
them?
We can't promise you'll
never get hit with another
cold or suffer another bout
of the flu, but you can in-
crease your odds of staying
well with these strategies.
If you do get sick, we've'
Wlso included some tips for
getting better faster.
! While colds won't kill
you, they can weaken your
immune system to the
point that other, more seri-
ous, germs can take hold in
your body. And given that
the average American
adult suffers two to three
colds a year, that's a lot of
opportunities for serious
illness. Every year in the
United States about 200,000
people are hospitalized and
36,000 die from the flu or its
complications.
7 1. Wash your hands
and wash them often. The
Naval Health Research
tenter conducted a study
If 40,000 recruits who were
orderedd to wash their
hands five times a day The
ecruits cut their inci-
ence of respiratory ill-
Pesses by 45 percent.
2. Wash your hands
twice every time you wash
them. When Columbia Uni-
yersity researchers looked
for germs on volunteers'
ands, they found one
landwashing had little ef-
ect, even when using an-
tibacterial-soap, -.
3. Use this hand-drying
strategy in public re-
strooms. Studies find a
shockingly large percent-
age of people fail to wash
their hands after using a
public restroom. And
every single one of them
touches the door handle on
the way out. So after wash-
ing your hands, use a paper
towel to turn off, the faucet.
Use another paper towel to
dry your hands, then open
the door with that paper


towel as a barrier between
you and the handle.
4. Carry hand sanitizer
with you. Colds are typical-
ly passed not from cough-
ing or kissing (although
those are two modes of
transmission) but from
hand-to-hand or hand-to-
object contact, since most
cold viruses can live for
'hours on objects. You then
put your hand in or near
your mouth or nose, and
voilA! You're sick. Carry
hand sanitizer gel or sani-
tizing towelettes with you
and you can clean your
hands anytime, even if the
closest water supply is 100
miles away. It works. One
study of absenteeism due
to infection in elementary
schools found schools us-
ing the gel sanitizer had
absentee rates from infec-
tion nearly 20 percent low-
er than those using other
hand-cleaning methods.
5. Use your knuckle to
rub your eyes. It's less like-
ly to be contaminated with
viruses than your finger-
tip. This is particularly im-
portant given that the eye
provides a perfect entry
point for germs, and the av-
erage person rubs his eyes
or nose or scratches his
face 20-50 times a day, notes
Jordan Rubin, Ph.D., au-
thor of the book The Mak-
er's Diet.
6. Run your toothbrush
through the microwave on
high for 10 seconds to kill
germs that can cause colds
and other illnesses. You
think it gets your teeth
clean -- and it does. But
once you're done brushing,
your-toothbrush is a breed-
ing ground for germs. Ster-
ilize it in the microwave
before you use it, or store it
in hydrogen peroxide
(rinse well before using),
or simply replace it every
month when you change,
the page on your calendar
and after you've had a cold.
7. Get a flu shot every
fall. The Centers for Dis-
ease Control recommends
flu shots for anyone 50
years old or older, resi-
dents of long-term care fa-


and tonsils) dry out, they
can't trap those germs very
well. Lowering the temper-
ature and using a room hu-
midifier helps maintain a
healthier level of humidity
in the winter.
12. Speaking of which,
buy a hygrometer. These
little tools measure humid-
ity You want your home to
measure around 50 per-
cent. A consistent measure
higher than 60 percent
means mold and mildew
may start to set in your
walls, fabrics, and kitchen;
lower than 40 percent and
the dry air makes you
more susceptible to germs.
13. Sit in a sauna once a
week. Why? Because an
Austrian study published
in 1990 found that volun-
teers who frequently used


cilities, people of any age
who have chronic medical
problems (heart or lung
disease, asthma, diabetes,
etc.), pregnant women, and
people whose immune sys-
tems have been weakened
(by cancer, AIDS, or other
causes). Also, people who
work or live with a high-
risk person should get a flu
shot so they don't spread
the flu. Of course, anyone
who just wants to avoid the
flu should also get one.
Hate shots? Ask for the
nasal spray vaccine.
8. Stop blaming your-
self when things go wrong
at work. Believe it or not,
blaming yourself makes
you more likely to catch a
cold! At least, that's what
researchers found when
they studied more than 200
workers over three
months. Even those who
had control over their
work were more likely to
begin sneezing if they
lacked confidence or tend-
ed to blame themselves
when things went wrong.
Researchers expect
such attitudes make people
more stressed on the job,
and stress, as you know,
can challenge your im-
mune system.
9. Put a box of tissues
wherever people sit. Come
October, buy a 6- or 12-pack
Of tissue boxes and strate-
gically place them around
the house, your workplace,
your car.
10. Leave the windows
in your house open a crack
in winter. Not all of them,
but one or two in the rooms
in which you spend the
most time. This is particu-
larly important if you live
in a newer home, where
fresh circulating air has
been the victim of energy
efficiency A bit of fresh air
will do wonders for chas-
ing out germs.
11. Lower the heat in
your house 5 degrees. The
dry air of an overheated
home provides the perfect
environment for cold
viruses to thrive. And

branes (i.e., nose, mouth,

SCHOOL & EDUCATION


"Masters of Disaster" Program Hits Like A Tornado At Lee Elementary


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Vicki Brown, Program Coordinator, Madison Coun-
ty Emergency Management, has a love of children that
matches her passion for ensuring their safety As part
of her ongoing effort to foster disaster prevention as a
central part of Director Jim Stanley's Emergency Man-
agement team, Brown aggressively promotes disaster-
prevention education to the children of Madison Coun-
ty
Brown states, "The Capital Area Chapter of the
American Red Cross has provided new and updated ma-


trial for the school curriculum called "Masters of Dis-
aster," which recently included 3rd to 5th grade teach-
ers at Lee Elementary School. "Masters of Disaster" is
a curriculum on disaster safety for children and their
families. This children's disaster safety curriculum
will help teachers integrate disaster safety into their
lesson plans, providing instruction, activities and
demonstrations that can be used to incorporate hazard-
related topics along side core academic subjects."
The entire Masters of Disaster curriculum in-
cludes lessons featuring general disaster preparedness,
with sections on hurricanes, floods, tornadoes and


lightning. Statistics from the National Weather Service
reveal that "natural" hazards cause more death, injury
and property damage than any other hazards.
Teachers using the Masters of Disaster curriculum
at Lee Elementary are Susan Phillips, 5th grade; Tonya
Watts, 4th-5th-grade combo; Jessica Webb, 3rd Grade;
and Debra Sails, 3rd grade. Brown visited each of the
classrooms, giving presentations and providing stu-
dents with hurricane tracking charts, pencils, color-
ing/activity books, and temporary tattoos to make the
learning fun, and more importantly, memorable.

Maison Puts The Brakes On Godby
Madison Pus


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madison slid past
Godby on Friday night
for a spectacular finish in
a close game. While it


was standing room only
in the bleachers at Chiles
High School stadium, the
field was full of college
prospects, including God-
by's British Footma'n and


liaisons nChris rnomp-
son, Cory Akins; and
Travis Arnold.
At the end of the first
quarter, Madison and
Godby were tied at seven.

Madison and Godby set up their line of scrimmage shortly before the end c
first half. Madison would eventually win the game 28 26.

Cory Akins ran in the
first touchdown of the
game, and the kick by
Daniel Sanders was up
and good. Four minutes
later, Godby's: Lavorie
Johnson ran in a four-
yard touchdown.
Madison scored first
again in the second quar-
ter, and Godby soon
caught up with a touch-
down by Quinton Allen.
A failed extra point at-
tempt by Daniel Sanders
had Madison trailing be-
hind at the end of the

LOCAL NEWS


MADISON FAMILIES
their private information and be on
the lookout for Internet and phone
scams as well. You don't always
think about that kind of crime, but
' its affected people here in Madison
already, and residents need to be
careful," Davis went on to say.
Madison County Sheriff Pete
: Bucher agrees. "If it doesn't look
, right, or seem right, let us know.
K Thieves will approach homes dis-
: guised as workers, then knock and
rob. Rural areas are more open to
* this type of crime. Neighbors look-
ing after neighbors can make a big
difference," Bucher said.
p Bucher has been in law enforce-
\ ment for 42 years, including the
F time he served in the military po-
lice in the Army. Elected to his first
; term in 2001, Bucher is pleased with
the positive direction crime preven-
tion has taken in the county
Lt. Dan Campbell, Subdistrict
'Commander for the Florida High-
\ way Patrol, gives the area a good re-
port card as well. "Traffic is our
primary focus and the number of
traffic incidents hasn't gone up.


Hallow(
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
Halloweens ever.
It is estimated that be-
tween 2,000 and 3,000 Trick
or Treaters will attend the
11th Annual Madison
Downtown Halloween.
Registration for the
free booths for this year has
increased over previous
years. Davis said that last
year approximately, 27
booths were set up. Ac-
cording to Terry Shefbuch
with the Madison County
Chamber of Commerce,
she would not be surprised
i to see the number of booths
| reach 40 or better this year.
"It is important that every-
one registers on time," she
said
Registration this year
will. be handled by Shef-
buch at the Chamber of
Commerce office, now lo-
cated in the Osceola Land
and Title Inc., building'at
248 S.W Range Avenue.
SRegistration can also be
done over the telephone by
i calling the Chamber of
Commerce at 973-2788.
The deadline for regis-
tration is 5 p.m. Friday Oc-
tober 26, 2007. After the
registration is closed, the
;Madison PD will assign
booth locations to both
business and individual
Srevelers. Maps showing the
Si booth locations will be dis-
Splayed on the windows at
the Madison County Cham-
ber of Commerce and at
the Madison Police Depart-
ment headquarters located
at 108 W Rutledge in down-
, town Madison after 5 p.m.
Son Monday, October 29. To
find out the location of
Your booth by telephone,
' call the police station at
850-973-5077.
The Halloween Cos-
tume Contest, sponsored by
Greene Publishing, Inc.
and Madison County Com-
munity Bank will take
place at 5 p.m.
Registration for the
'Halloween Costume Con-
test will begin at 5 p.m. on
Sthe west lawn of the Madi-
Sson County Courthouse.
Parents or guardians
SMUST accompany their
children during registra-
tion to sign releases on be-
half of their children.
There are four age
" groups that will be judged:
infants to four years old,
five and six year olds, seven
to nine year olds and 10 to
12 year olds. Categories ex-
ist in each age group for the
spookiest or the best movie
themed costumes. Prizes
will be award to the top two
contestants in each age
group as well as the top two
overall winner. Judges are
volunteers from Greene

The rise in the number of single ve-
hicle, single occupant fatalities is
the only thing that's gotten worse,
but it isn't drug or alcohol specific,"
Campbell noted. Separately, Camp-
bell has served for 33 years and is
scheduled for retirement this Fri-
day, Nov. 2nd.
Sergeant Charlie Dickey, School
Resource Officer Supervisor for the
Madison County Sheriff Depart-
ment, pointed out several improve-
ments he sees at the schools around
the county "The Madison County
Central School uniform require-
ment for instance, is starting to
show positive effects, but we're al-
ways monitoring for problems. We
carefully follow crime reports re-
garding anything that might con-
cern the high school, middle school,
or any of the outlying elementary
schools," Dickey explained.
Dickey has been working with
the schools for almost 25 years.
"We pride ourselves on protecting
and working closely with the kids.
We've even participated in terror-
ism training recently to stay on


,en Night

Publishing, Inc. and the the
Madison County Commu- Trick
nity Bank: p.m.
Registration will end at T
5:45 p.m. with an awards ng tc
presentation taking place this y
at 6 p.m. The winners will to pi
be announced as close to 6 check
p.m. as possible, and must the I
be present to win. Every part
effort will be made to fin- of th
ish the contest in time for will


top of the issues of the day," he
said in closing.
During the assembly of this
story, an element of crime came to
the surface that doesn't have a
number. That feature is the "per-
ception" of safety. It doesn't take
much to shake things up in a small
community. Arrests are front-
page headlines, literally. Bad
news travels fast, and it doesn't
have far to go to touch virtually
everyone.
At the end of the day, private
interviews showed that historical-
ly most residents have maintained
a sense of well-being and safety in
Madison County. A few more said
they do lock their doors now how-
ever, but don't know a place else-
where that feels safer.
Regardless, there is one thing
that remains clear. If one bases
his or her expectation regarding
the future safety of Madison
County on the intentions of those
charged with upholding it, the
county will make a great home for
years and years to come.

tion details.
There is another program now available. through
CCM that has no approval process. The "SHARE, Flori-
da Food Network," is a- service that offers pre-packaged
food in various denominations and combinations. In ad-
dition to the basic packages, which start at only $18,
there is a Christmas package that is a great gift idea.
The SHARE program is designed to help families
stretch their food dollars. On average, packages are ap-
proximately 50 cents on the dollar and may be pur-
chased with Food Stamps, although it's open to anyone.
Orders scheduled for delivery on December 15 should be
submitted to the CCM warehouse office no later than
November 28.


AIRPORT

time, that planes landed in the middle of the night.
When I called the Sheriff, I was told not to go down
there." Playfully she went on to say, "So I didn't."
Over the years, there's been a minor tug-o-war be-
tween those wanting, and those opposed, to the airport.
At one point, there was a proposal to bring the airport to
FAA standards for larger tonnage planes. At another
time, there was a proposal to construct an airport else-
where in the county sufficient to handle freight and
package delivery, like FedEx. Tourism promoters would
enjoy an airport for "fly-ins" and recreational charters.
Ultimately, each effort has been grounded, as the oppo-
sition to noise, proximity and/or costs prevailed.
Currently operating under "private" status due to
the lack of necessary tree clearance, the grass runway is
still maintained by the Madison County Department of
Public Works (MCDPW). Planes wanting to utilize the
facility should contact MCDPW at 973-2156 for permis-
sion details.
In the end, this reporter wasn't disappointed at the
absence of an in-depth airport story, instead secretly cel-
ebrating the opportunity to share time with the Searcy
family, who recently celebrated their Diamond (60th)
Anniversary.
