TWO MADISON COUNTY CHILDREN KILLED


10- Year-Old Killed

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Don'tavious Davon
Fead, a 10-year-old from
Madison, was killed in an
automobile accident in
Taylor County on Satur-
day, November 3, at 2:45
p.m.


Don'tavious Davon Fead
According to a Florida
Highway Patrol report,
Latara Tomeka Tyson, 32,
of Madison, was traveling
eastbound on Highway 14,
in Shady Grove at a high
rate of speed. For un-
known reasons, her 1999


Ford Explorer veered to
the right and entered onto
the south grass shoulder.
Tyson overcorrected
and caused the SUV to
veer to the left and rotate
in a counterclockwise di-
rection. She lost control of
the vehicle, which over-
turned on the roadway
and traveled onto the
north grass shoulder,
overturning several more
times.
The SUV came to a fi-
nal rest in a ditch on its
wheels, pointing in a
northwesterly direction.
As the vehicle over-
turned, Don'tavious Fead
and Henry Jerome Fead
III, also 10, were ejected
from the vehicle.
All of the occupants in
the SUV were from Madi-
son.
Don'tavious Fead re-
ceived fatal injuries and
died at the scene.
Henry Fead III suf-
fered serious injuries.
Makilah McClan, 2,
was seriously injured.
Tyson was critically
injured in the wreck.

By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On November 6 at 2:17 a.m., a patrol car, driven by
Patrolman Joseph E. Smith, struck a vehicle driven by
on-duty Madison County Sheriff's Deputy Timothy G.
Nagy.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, who in-
vestigated the crash, Smith's 2007 Crown Victoria patrol
unit was traveling north on Harvey Greene Drive, while
Nagy's 2002 Crown Victoria patrol unit was traveling
west on the same road.
Both vehicles approached a sharp curve on opposite
sides of the road. Smith took the curve too tight and ran
over large speed breaks on the east edge of the roadway
Smith overcorrected and veered left, crossing the center
line of the road, sideswiping Nagy's car.
Smith was charged with "driving on the wrong side
of the roadway" No injuries were reported from either

After 30 minutes of cutting the top off of Hampton's vehicle, firefighters and emergency ser-
vice brought her out to an awaiting ambulance. Mitchell was carried out immediately afterwards.


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
According to the
Florida Highway Patrol,
on November 5 at approxi-
mately 8:20 p.m., a 2001
GMC Van, driven by
Lashawndra R. Hampton,
age,24, overturned, killing
a two-year-old boy named
Deontres Mitchell.
Hampton was travel-
ing southbound on State
Road 14 on a curve. The
vehicle veered to the right
and traveled onto the


western shoulder of the
road. Hampton overcor-
rected the steering, caus-
ing the vehicle to veer to
the left.
Hampton's vehicle
traveled across both lanes
of traffic on SR 14 before
entering the western
grassy shoulder. The
front of the van collided
with three mailboxes,
then entered a ditch.
The van then ran into
a metal guide wire, caus-
ing it to rotate in a


counter-clockwise direc-
tion. The rear of Hamp-
ton's vehicle struck an
oak tree and overturned
onto its right side. The
van came to a final rest on
the east grass shoulder of
SR 14 on its right side
pointing northwest.
Deontres Mitchell suf-
fered fatal injuries and
died on the scene. Hamp-
ton, age 24, was taken to
Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital with critical in-
juries. Additional passen-


gers in the vehicle. Grego-
ry Mitchell. Jr., age five,
and Keshaun Mitchell,
age four, suffered minor
injuries and were trans-
ported to Madison County
Memorial Hospital. All
occupants of the .vehicle
were from Madison.
None of the occupants
in the van were re-
strained with any kind of
safety device. Charges
against Lashawndra R.
Hampton are currently
pending.

We Lo lrYou,


Harry Truman
By Michael Curtis
Viewpoint


President Truman,
You had the awesome
responsibility of ending
the horrors of WWII by
dropping the atomic
bomb. You were a dedicat-
ed Freemason of the high-
est order and coined the
phrase, "The Buck' Stops
Here," to show your will-
ingness to take responsi-
bility.
However, along with
these demonstrations of
strength and resolve, you
also possessed a humble
manner toward youth and
their role in America's fu-
ture.

What do you want to
say to the youth of our
county about our country?

Harry Truman In his
own words...

"The United States of
America is the greatest
Republic in the history of
the world. We want to keep
it the greatest Republic. It
will be up .to you young
people to do that job in the
future.
Youth is the hope of
the world. That was 'the
motto on the front door of
the high school from
which I graduated, only it
was written in Latin, "Ju-
ventus Spes Mundi." I will
"never 'f6rgft "it. I never
have forgotten it, and I still
think that youth is the
hope of the world, and that
they always will be. It is


- In His Own Words


-
I .:"
President Harry Truman worked to promote American
values and American youth.


just as true now as it was
when I came out of that
small town high school, It
is necessary for the young
people to understand the
road to be followed, if this
country is to accomplish
the mission that God in-
tended it to accomplish in
this world.
I hope I can give you
some idea of how to follow
that road into tomorrow
and the future of the
world. I hope you will go
back to your schools and
Stalk about it and discuss it.
I hope you will write about
it in'your publications, be-
cause it is your responsi-
bility as editors to work for


the good of your great
country, and for the future
of the world. Both are in
your hands.
Now, the thing I want
to impress upon you is that
government must be oper-
ated on the basis oT the
greatest good for the great-
est number of its citizens.
That is the fundamental
-basis of the domestic pro-
gram and the foreign poli-
cy of this Government of
yours and mine. No nation
is good and can last unless
'it is built upon our ideals.,
Our Nation is built upon
ideals-ideals of un-
selfishness and respect for
the rights and welfare of


Letr To! The( E4r


others.
The fundamental basis
of this Nation's ideals was
given to Moses on Mount
Sinai. The fundamental
basis of the Bill of Rights
of our Constitution comes
from the teachings which
we get from Exodus, St.
Matthew, Isaiah, and St.
Paul. The Sermon on the ,;
Mount gives us a way of
life, and maybe some day
men will understand it as
the real way of life. The ba-
sis of all great moral codes "*
is "Do unto others as you
would have others do unto i
you." Treat others as you
would like to be treated.
Some of you may think
that such a philosophy as
that has no place in poli-
tics and government. But
it is the only philosophy on
which you can base a last-,.
ing government. Govern-
ments built on that philos- ,.
ophy are built on a rock,
and will not fail. .
When our own Gov-
ernment has looked after
the average man first, we
have grown and prospered. a
But when those in power
have used our Govern-
ment to increase the privi-
leges of the few at the top, a
the life and spirit of our
country have declined.
Thank God most of the
time we have been on the
right road."
President Truman's b
comments echo into the
present. Taking ari6idffo-it-m
to compassionately An-
struct and remind youth of
these principles is 60 sec-
onds well spent.

WHY THE ENGLISH HATE THE IRISH


The London Times of August 23, 1865 ran a most
interesting item on the Irish which is relevant even
to this day.
"Every Englishman who has reached middle age
knows what it is to have a son, a brother, a nephew, or
a cousin who is the drop of bitter in his cup, the
thorn in his side, the fly in his ointment. It is not nec-
essary that the graceless relative should be ir-
reclaimably bad. He is, perhaps, simply improvident
and reckless, impulsive in action and hasty in
speech; generous-with other people's money; warm-
hearted, if fickle, in love as in hate. Unstable as wa-
ter, he is by turns sanguine and despondent, but
whatever else may be doubtful about him, it is cer-
tain that at short intervals he will be thrown back
upon his friends for assistance out of some scrape or
help in a some sore necessity. Acknowledging no
obligation to provide for the future, he is continually
in distress how to meet the necessities of the present,
and, ignoring the existence of law, he is constantly
reminded of it by incurring its penalties. The most


remarkable part of his case, however, is that, his
sober friends, who are outraged by his lawlessness
and have to pay for his extravagance, bear no malice
against him, and at times feel a kind of pride inbe-
friending a creature who has emancipated himself
from all the burdens of duty.
"The Irishman has a passion for lawlessness, and
the only thing constant about him is his hatred of or-
der and of those appointed to maintain it. Ireland
stands in the same relation to Englishmen collective-
ly that our unfortunate sons and nephews do to us in-
dividually. We may say or do what we will, and may
receive or reject promises of amendment; we may be-
lieve or disbelieve assurances that the inhabitants of
the sister isle have at length turned over a new leaf,
but the end is always the same. The Irishman has a
passion for law-lessness, and the only thing constant
about him is his hatred of order."
Sincerely,
Nelson A. Pryor

AMT


No this isn't
an article about a
security alarm N
company that
would be ADT. S
But AMT, the
acronym for Al- J
ternative Mini- o
mum Tax, is an
economic time
bomb that should
be sending off
alarm bells in your pocket
book.
In the late 1960s, Con-
gress discovered that 21
wealthy families had paid
no income tax the previ-
ous year using legal de-
ductions to reduce their
income to practically
zero. Congress, now well
into a 40+ year reign of
Democrat control, was
outraged. (Note: Beware
of outraged politicians;
they frequently go off
half-cocked.)
To sooth their out-
rage, Congress enacted an
Alternative Minimum
Tax in 1969. Simply put,
AMT requires taxpayers
to figure their tax burden
a second way, ignoring
several popular deduc-
tions. If their AMT calcu-
lations result in a higher
tax, that's what you pay.
Pretty simple and
straight forward, right?
It's all about "taxing the
rich," a Democrat theme
as old as FDR's New Deal.
Just one minor problem
with AMT nearly four
decades ago when it was
passed, the Congress did-
n't index it for inflation.
Thirty-eight years ago,
millionaires were a lot
rarer than they are today.
Put another way, a million

dollars just doesn't go as
far as it used to!
A tax law that was de-
signed to trap a couple of
dozen super-rich people in
1969 last year ensnared
about 4 million taxpayers.
Next year, we anticipate
that twenty million more, ,
Americans will pay the
AMT tax reaching deeper
into the middle class.
Now you understand why
I described this as an eco-
nomic time bomb!
The answer seems ob-
vious just repeal AMT.
But, as is always the case
with Washington, the
politicians have gotten
used to spending the mon-
ey. "We can't go cold-
turkey," they whine, "We
have so many needs."
Yada, yada, yada.
For several years now
rather than fix the darn
thing, Congress has
patched AMT for the com-
ing year taking out the
worst effects. This has de-
layed the inevitable and
pushed a bow-wave of tax-
es into the future. (What's
this? Politicians refusing
to tackle tough problems
and putting off the in-
evitable? Say it ain't so,
Joe.)
I thought I'd check
and see how this has af-
fected me in the past. Last
year, I did not pay the Al-
ternative Minimum Tax.
That's good news. Next
year, I might not be so
lucky My 2006 tax return
was 23 pages long plus six
attached pages of notes.
Seven of those 23 pages,
about one-third of my re-
turn, were devoted to
AMT calculations. There
is a cost associated with
longer tax returns. And
people wonder why our
tax code is a labyrinth of
nightmares, traps and
snares!
Now that the Democ-
rats are back in control of
Congress, their leaders
have vowed to fix AMT

once and for all,
f presumably be-
cause it is an in-
creasingly "tax-
ing" matter for
their con-
stituents. I
guess that's fair;
they created the
mess so they
should be the
ones to clean it
up. Since Article 1, Sec-
tion 7 of the Constitution
requires all revenue bills
to originate in the House
of Representatives, the re-
sponsibility of dealing
with AMT and other tax
matters falls to the House
Ways and Means Commit-
tee, and its chairman,
Charlie Rangel of New
York.
Last week, Rangel of-
fered a $1.3 Trillion (that's
trillion with a t) income
redistribution plan to rid
our coffers permanently
of AMT. While there are
some sweeteners in his
plan like lowering the cor-
porate tax rate, the bur-
den of paying for AMT
falls on the rich (natural-
ly) by adding a surcharge
to their top marginal in-
come tax rate.
So, let me get this
straight, Joe. We're going
to get rid of a tax that was
designed to trap rich peo-
ple by redefining rich and
taxing the new rich???????
On the eve of Halloween,
only a politician could
dream up such a chamber
of horrors. That is the es-
sential problem of falling
for the "tax the rich"
mantra sooner than lat-
er, it begins to encroach
on more and more people
who are far from rich,
whatever you happen to
define that to mean.
Rangel's plan isn't go-
ing anywhere this year, so
we'll probably see another
patch job. But it is a pre-
cursor to what will hap-
pen in 2009 following next
year's election if the De-
mocrats dominate as so
many are currently pre-
dicting.
In 1775, Paul Revere
rode through the streets of
Boston warning citizens
that, "the British are com-
ing." Today, the warning
should read, "the tax man
is coming," and his name
is good ole Charlie.

Man Arrested For Possession With Intent,


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
According to the Madison Police
Department, Napoleon Francis was ar-
rested on November 11.
Officer Tiffany Travis made con-
tact with Francis at the Madison
Heights apartment complex. The sub-
ject was sitting on the curb behind
building G. Travis conducted a war-
rant check through dispatch, and dis-


covered that Francis had an active
warrant.
Travis then arrested Francis, and
before searching him, asked if he had
anything on his person that she should

establishment that is
friendly, enjoyable and en-
tertaining.
And it was totally by ac-
cident that Dawn Phillips
became the new owner.
Dawn and her husband,
Jim, had been patrons
when the bar was under
the old management. One
evening they were having
dinner at a /Chinese
restaurant in Madison
when the waitress just
happened to mention that
the Lee Bar was up for
sale. Immediately, Jim
Phillips said to his wife,
"Get, in the truck," to
which Dawn jokingly
replied, "Oh, no!" And
just about that fast the de-
cision was made that this
was the business opportu-
nity she had been looking
for.
Dawn has over 20 years
of retail management ex-
perience and, in fact, still
continues to manage a
large grocery outlet in
Valdosta, Ga. She hopes
that someday D & J's Pub
will be her full-time occu-
pation.
D & J's Pub has many of
the fares that you would
expect in a country pub.
Pizza, sandwiches, and
wings are just a few of the
items on their menu.
"But two of our best sell-
ers are our deluxe Angus
Cheeseburgers and our
delicious Philly Cheese
Steak sandwiches," says
owner Dawn Phillips.
And make no mistake
about it, when you go
there, you won't leave
hungry or thirsty
"We have been remodel-
ing the place almost since
day one. Wvehave the only

County In fact, I think we
have the only draft beer in
the county," continues
Dawn. And for Monday

They have also added ex-
tra security on the busier
nights just to make sure
everyone's experience at
the pub is a pleasant one.
The pub continues to
work toward entertaining
an adult audience. Two
regulation pool tables, a
dart game and other elec-
tronic games are avail-
able. There is alsq- a big
screen TV and a twin pair
of professional looking
poker tables for playing
poker, according to the
rules and regulations of
the 5th Street Poker Tour.
Poker play is strictly
for fun; money betting is
never allowed, and you
must be over 21 to play,
however, those playing
could qualify to play in
professional money tour-
naments in other areas
where it's legal.
For entertainment, the
pub offers karaoke every
Thursday night, and with
Mike Scott running the
show on Friday and Satur-
day evenings. In addition,
Stephen Lee performs as a
one-man band once a
month. And it has just
been confirmed that the
band called "Outback"
will be performing on No-

When you think of wed-
ding receptions, what is the
one thing that they all have?
A "stately mountain of
snowy frosting and royal ic-
ing blossoms," (from "The
Perfect Wedding Cake" by
Kate Manchester), a.k.a. the
wedding cake! Not bad for a
dessert which has its roots
clear back to the. Roman
Empire. But back then,
there was no beautifully
decorated, sweet confection.
Instead, a loaf of barley
bread was broken over the
bride's head to symbolize
her fertility Can you imag-
ine picking crumbs out of
your hair?
As the barley bread
evolved into today's wed-
ding cake, the symbolism of
the cake and the cake cut-
ting ceremony evolved into
your first joint act as a mar-
ried couple, your commit-
ment to provide for each
other, and the sweet life you
will share together.
Your wedding cake
! should taste absolutely won-
derful, however, it is not just
dessert. Your wedding cake
will be an integral part of
the reception decor, so place
it in a strategic location
where all of your guests can
easily see it. How about in
the center of the dance
floor? It can be removed af-
ter the cake cutting ceremo-
ny table and all so you
have room for your first
dance as husband and wife.
Just be sure that someone
carefully cleans up any
stray icing that may hit the
floor which can be very slip-
pery and dangerous. Or how
about placing your wedding,
cake in a cprner with pin


lights or a small spotlight
highlighting its glory?
The Statue of Liberty
has its pedestal, a queen has
her throne, the cake table
needs to be worthy to hold
such a beautiful creation.
Like a beautiful frame that
surrounds a lovely painting,
the cake table should be dec-
orated to complement the
wonderful confection that it
holds. Decorating the cake
table needn't be time con-
suming nor ex pensive. You
may already have some-
thing appropriate in your
closet or on the dining room
table. A lace tablecloth
would' be lovely draped
across the cake table. A
length of tulle loosely bil-
lowed on the top of the table
gives the impression of
your cake floating on
clouds. Or, swag the table
with tulle, organza, lame, or
garlands of greenery and
flowers.
If your motto is "Life's
too short, eat dessert first,"
then you may want to go all
out with your desserts. Have
a dessert bar with trays of
different scrumptious deli-
cacies iced cookies, brown-
ies, mini bite-sized cheese-
cakes with your wedding
cake as the centerpiece. And
speaking of centerpieces, if
one large cake to feed hun-
dreds of people isn't your
thing, how about a small
(only big enough for two)
cake which you and your
new spouse get to cut and
feed each other, and in place
of the more traditional flo-
ral or candle centerpieces
for each guest table, have a
single tiered cake that
serves 8-10 people.

the first PSA in a series
designed to seek finan-

featured in the PSA
which was produced by

tions.
"For the past 90
years, the Capital Area
Chapter of the Red Cross
has been recognized for
its response to the
tragedy caused by hurri-
canes that all too often
reach our shores. Just as
important, the Red Cross
works to assist families,

said Joseph Agostini,
CEO of the Capital Area
Chapter of the Red
Cross. "These so-called
'silent disasters' are the
most common disasters
we respond to and be-
cause of the frequency
with which these events
occur, they account for a
i,


Miss Kylie Williams
great deal of our total
budget. In this context,
it's critical that our com-
munity continues to pro-
vide financial support to
strengthen our capacity
to respond to emergen-
cies." Agostini added,
"To that end, and with
the help of Miss Florida
2007 Kylie Williams and
Ron Sachs Communica-
tions, we have launched
a campaign to tell our
story and bring-in criti-
cal funding."
"The Capital Area
Chapter of the Red Cross
has helped thousands of
people in their time of
need over their 90 year
history. Because of my
role as Miss Florida, I
have interacted with vet-
erans and active mili-
tary personnel, as well
as their families, and
have seen first hand how
the Red Cross touches
their lives in a positive
way. I am especially sup-
portive of their role of
connecting our brave
men and women in the
Armed Forces to their
families in time of emer-
gency," said Kylie
Williams, Miss Florida
2007. "That is why I am
proud to be a part of this
project. Your gift makes
it all possible and that's
why this is an important
campaign."
"When I heard that
the Red Cross needed
help to continue to pro-
vide for victims of disas-
ters, I was happy to help.
The disaster response
services and life-saving
education provided by
the Capital Area Chapter
of the Red Cross often


goes unnoticed, even
within our own commu-
nity," said Ron Sachs,
President of Ron Sachs
Communications.
"That's why it's critical
to get the message out
that the Red Cross has
been here for our com-
munity for over 90 years
and how the Red Cross
needs the community to
be there for them. This is
the message we're com-
municating and we're
happy to be able to assist
in this fundraising en-
deavor."
In an average year,
the Capital Area Chap-
ter:
*Provided food, shel-
ter, clothing and emo-
tional support to the

half (42%) of those who missed
work or another function be-
cause of a headache were not
truthful about the reason of.
their absence. The reasons
that they weren't truthful in-
cluded that they were embar-

percent of men and 95' percent
of women have had at least one
headache[l] Just like heart

it requires a diagnosis so that
people can obtain proper treat-

headache is a treatable disease
and people should not need-

"Many treatment options

which is most commonly expe-

half of all migraine sufferers
have received a diagnosis of
migraine from their health-

Five Tips to Save Big




Bucks When Buying a Car


Most people hate buy-
ing a car. They rate it right
up there with getting a
root canal-downright
painful. But why oh why
is buying a vehicle such a
nightmare? For many of
us it is the painful negotia-
tion to get the best price.
Is there any way that we
can buy a car and save
money without all of the
stress?,!
YES! The reason that
the negotiation is so
stressful is that people
don't understand how car
dealerships make their
profits: your car loan.
This is where the real prof-
its come, into play. And
while everyone cringes
when it comes time to talk
about credit, don't let your
eyes glaze over just yet, be-
cause that's where you
need to focus if you want
to be a savvy consumer
and save money
5 Tips to Save Big Bucks
When Buying a Car!
1. Check Your Credit
Report
Most credit reports


contain inaccurate infor-
mation. It's up to you to
find the inaccuracies and
correct them there's no
government agency that
requires the credit report
companies to amend mis-
takes to your report.
2. Good Credit Means
That You're Ripe for
Abuse
When you have good
credit, banks place fewer
restrictions on your loan
and that allows dealers to
charge you more for the
car and'inflate your inter-
est rate. So it's crucial to
know your lender's condi-
tions on your loan up-
front.
3. Bad Credit Means the
Bank Protects its Money
When you have bad
credit, the bank places
more restrictions on the
loan. That gives dealers
less wiggle room to add on
options or raise the inter-
est rate. But bad credit
still means you have fewer
options when borrowing
money
4. Get Pre-approved Be-


fore You Visit Any Car
Dealers
That way the dealer is
forced to make a deal that
fits the conditions out-
lined by the bank again,
eliminating that profit
wiggle room.
5. Have an Exit Strate-
gy
Don't let the lust for
leather seats and a premi-
um sound system melt
your brain. When buying
a car, keep in mind at some
point you'll sell that car.
So you must be smart.
You'll pay much more for
options than you'll recoup
when selling it down the
road.
Mark Marine author of
"Don't Kick the Tires,
Kick the Dealer" says that
consumers also need to
know that when it comes
to their credit, the best
thing they can do is pay
their bills on time and be-
ware of 'credit repair'
scams.
"Understand that not
all of the credit repair
companies have your best


interests at heart," says
Marine. "Some of these
companies claim they can
hide or remove negative
information from your
credit report, even if that
information is true. But
they can't. In some cases
after they've 'repaired'
your credit, your score
drops even lower than be-
fore you went to them."
When it comes to your
credit and buying a new
car, consumers need to be
informed. Check your
credit score, get pre-ap-
proved first, and plan your
exit strategy A car pur-
chase will affect your eco-
nomic life for roughly
three to seven years.
That's a long time to be
stuck in a bad deal.

Five Insights On




Manifesting Money


By Joe Vitale
Money, all by itself, is
nothing but paper and
metal. It's pretty amazing
as a piece of art. But in
and of itself, money is
worthless. Money is paper.
It's us who apply
meaning to it. And that's
where people start loading
it with self-esteem issues,
with control issues. We ap-
ply all kind of meaning to
the money
And my advice is to
start thinking of money
like Monopoly It's fun. It's
part of the game, but it
does not determine
whether you are happy or
not happy, whether you
are worthwhile or not
worthwhile. It's got noth-


ing to do
with it.
You
don't want
to have
feelings of
need or at-
tachment
or addic-
t i o n
a.r found
money, be-
cause then
you're
sending
out a feel-
ing of
need, at-


tachment, and addiction,
and it's going to cause an
imbalance. It's going to be
pushing away money. A
part of you will be saying,
I want money, I want to do
great things with money,
and then another part of
you is going to say, "I don't
want money because mon-
ey is evil, and rich people
do bad things, and it will
mean I'm greedy So a part
of you is saying bring it
on, and another part is
saying keep it away, and
what happens? You cancel
it out, and you don't get
any
Money is a means of
exchange, but it's because
we've agreed on the mean-
ing. It doesn't, by itself,

have magical powers. You
have the magical powers.
So the focus needs to be on
you, not on the money
Focus on what you
love, because what every-
body in the world wants is
to love and to be loved.
And if you can focus on
sharing your heart to the
people who most want to
feel your heart, you'll end
up receiving money It will
come as a byproduct, as a
side effect. It won't come
as anything you've direct-
ly focused on.
Let money be neutral,
and let your self-esteem
and your self-worth not be
dependent on it. Let it be
dependent on your satis-
faction with yourself.

Is A Re-Mortgage


Right for Your Family?

By Janet Maier
Mortgage Specialist, MCCB
Is it time for you to re-mortgage your home? If you
are paying more than you can handle because of high in-
terest rates, if you are using your credit cards to pay
your bills or if you are behind in payments and are
about to lose your home, it may be time to re-mortgage
your home. You should get help before it is too late.
A re-mortgage is when you take out a new mortgage,
with a lower interest rate and lower payments to pay off
your existing mortgage while keeping your home.
There are a number of ways to re-mortgage that can
make life a lot easier for you.
FIRST Get a FREE Mortgage Evaluation from a com-
munity bank.
Community banks do not make subprime loans such
as "teaser" rates, lack of appropriate borrower income
documentation, very high or no limits on reset pay-
ments or interest rates. Moreover, community banks do
not make loans with features that will likely result in
frequent refinancing.
Community banks have strong incentives to ensure
that a borrower receives a mortgage loan that is appro-
priate for their circumstances. Community banks focus
on customer relationships; they want their mortgage
customer to have a good experience so they will be will-
ing to do more banking business with them. Communi-
ty banks also want the customer to be able to repay their
obligation in a timely manner. The low delinquency and
foreclosure rates on mortgages made by community
banks as compared to the rest of the industry are evi-
dence that they. take great care when extending credit.
In today's uncertain market the smart money is go-
ing on fixed rate re-mortgages. There are still some ex-
cellent deals out there: However, it is important to do
your research and compare all of the products on the
market to find one that suits your personal circum-
stances. While interest rates will give a broad indication
of which are the cheapest re-mortgages, there are other
things to look out for.
Don't get caught out up in cheap introductory inter-
est rates. Calculate how much interest you will pay on
the loan over the full term of the re-mortgage.
Don't pay large discount / origination fees. Com-
pare the cost of a re-mortgage to the savings in evaluat-
ing the question of whether the re-mortgage is right for
you.
If yatiare considering re-mortgaging your home, get
A FREE / no, Obligation Mortgage Evaluatiodi from a
community bank today!

Fran Hunt
Monticello News

action Friday night, Nov. 2, in the Panhandle Conference
Championship and district game.
Coach Joe Striplin named Matt Bishop as the offen-
sive player of the week. He had 23 carries for 206 yards,
one touchdown.
Reggie Walker was named as the defensive player of
the week. He had eight solo tackles during Friday's game.
Quarterback Matt Dobson had seven pass comple-
tions out of 13 attempts for 137 yards, two touchdowns,
nine rushes for 156 yards, one touchdown.
Walker had five carries for 17 yards, two touchdowns;
and Jerel Drew had two carries for 28 yards.

Woody Vollertsen, six tackles, two quarterback sacks, and
Hunter Greene, five tackles, two quarterback sacks. Dob-
son had one pass interception.
Friday, Nov. 9 is the final game of the regular season
and ACA Homecoming, as Warriors take on Oak Hall at
7:30 p.m.
Striplin said that both schools go into the game with a


6-3 record and Oak Hall likes to throw the ball every play,
so the Warriors have to be ready to hold them.
Striplin states that though the Warriors have many
top-notch players, there were some who have proven
themselves repeatedly through tne season and fans would
see some action out of them.
Offensive players to watch include Bishop, who has
demonstrated his talent for running the ball, and Barn-
well and Anderson in receiving the ball.
On defense, players to watch who have proven that
they can get to the ball quickly, include Greene, Vollert-
sen, and Walker.
Striplin added that the Warriors have been invited to
attend a post-season bowl game, Thursday night, 7:30
p.m., Nov. 15 at Bell.

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-
siyely 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, sb the more you put in, the
lower your annual taxable income. Plus, your earnings canI
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.

Don't wait for

something bad to

happen.


Childproof your home now!


No parent wants their child to get hurt, but some accidents are just
unavoidable. There are ways, however, that you can reduce the risk of
accidents in your home. These include:
Make sure all baby equipment is in good condition.
Put guards on all unused electricqalsockets.
Install safety locks on all windows
Place safety latches on all cabinets, doors and toilet seats.
Gate off stairways, fireplaces and, rooms that might pose a hazard.
Cushion the edges of furniture with-padding or guards.
Shorten blind cords.
Use non-skid mats in bathtubs,
Store cleaning products, medication and other hazardous items out of
children's reach.
Turn pot handles inward when cook g and keep children away from
the stove.
After you've taken these precautions, get down on your hands and
knees and view your house fronr your'child's perspective. You may see
6ther hazardous areas. Even with the best of precautions taken, acci-
e 1 dents can happen. Be prepared by'taking a first aid class and posting a
list of emergency numbers by th he qe.
