Mum


Tuesday, November
27th, marked the 15th birth-
day of my oldest daughter,
Cheltsie. My, Oh My, How
The Years Have Flown.
15! The big milestone
for the age of the restricted
driver's license. She's been _'
studying the book and I
guess we'll be getting that
license sometime this week.
My days in the driver's C ( Yj0
seat are just about over. I'll g em
be viewing the world from
the passenger seat from Emerald Kinsley, Publis
now on.
Cheltsie's alot different than I was at that
age, though. She has never been in a hurry
to grow up, and I'm glad for that. Boy. I
was. Couldn't wait to get to be 13, and
then couldn't wait to be 15, then 16, then
18. I rushed my growing years.
Not Cheltsie. Someone asked her
how old she was, just last week, and
she replied 14. There she sat just
five (5) days away from 15 and she
still replied 14. (Two months after
my 14th birthday I was already "al-
most 15".)
My, Oh My, How The Years Have
Flown. I swear it was just yesterday
that she was a toddler. Wasn't it just
yesterday that I took her to Miss H
Jean's Daycare for the first time, and
couldn't go to work for 30 minutes be-
cause I couldn't quit crying.
Where have the years gone? While
looking back on some of the "funny"
things through the years, I'm not sure if I
want to laugh or cry.
First grade brought tears for both of us. Chelt-
sie being the perfectionist, that she is, would get mad
and start crying when she couldn't read that whole book
the first time without messing up. She felt like she
could/should be able to just sit down and read it. She
would get mad and start crying. It would frustrate me
(we're so much alike) and I would start crying, Paul
would walk in the door, and I promise, we would both be
sitting at the kitchen table both squalling. What a sight
that had to be. I gave up first grade homework. I was no
good at it. Paul took over until second grade. .. ,
Second grade wow Indian projects. That is some-
thing you will NEVER forget.
Third grade Multiplication tables, learning to
write in cursive, and the International Dinner/Report. I
got off easy on that one. My sister-in-law, Janice, is from
the Philippines, so Cheltsie picked that for her report.
When it came time to make a dish from that country,
Janice came over and she and Cheltsie did that together,
while I babysat Joshua and Jade.
Fourth grade the Marianna caverns.
Fifth grade learning each capital for each state.
Sixth grade learning to change classes a lot more
homework and being crowned May Queen.
Seventh grade being able to crown the new May
Queen.
Eighth grade announcing the name of the new
May Queen, and it being her sister Brooke (that was re-
ally special to her), and of course the eighth grade trip
(and fundraisers) and graduation. What a proud mo-
ment.
Ninth grade/High School that's where we are now
and that's enough. Just knowing that she's gotten that
old and is now in high school is really enough for me.
Through the years my parents always told me to
hold fast to every moment, that one day it would all be
memories. I really feel that now, even though I know I
have A LOT more moments coming. She is only 15 not
moving out of my house quite yet.
Paul and I have always tried to be a big part of our
two girls' lives. We go boating, skiing, go out to the
movies a lot, and spend a lot of quality family time to-
gether. Our hopes have always been that if they grow up
with us being together then they will have fun spending


And see how fast they would fix it. If enough people re-
ceive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and
maybe good changes will evolve.

many people WILL you send this to?

their time with us instead
of trying to go somewhere
else all the time.
It seemed like a good
"plan" but boy what fun
we have all had. Our
"plan" turned into the
S best life we could have
ever known. We spend all
our time together. Don't
get me wrong ACA and
X IMCHS Friday night foot-
ball games are now more
important than just sit-
ier ting on the couch with
Mom and Dad, but all-in-
all, we still have our children with us.
I would like to take this time to encour-
age all those reading this column, that
have children at home, to spend time
with them. I don't mean an hour here
and there. I mean.spend QUALITY
TIME with them. If they are young,
go outside and play ball, or hide-
and-seek, or play on the swing set,
go swimming, or go boating (we
taught our girls how to ski at ages
s four and six.)
ta No matter what the age spend
your weekends with the children
doing something fun.a. The pay-off
in the end is extraordinary. Your
children will actually enjoy being
with you and doing things with you,
and you will have a relationship that
w ill take you all the way though your
life. Children don't have to stop being
.. with their parents at age 15, 16 or 17. If
the relationship is there then, so willn be the
friendship and the good times. Ihave no doubt
that no matter what age my children are, they are
still going to be going skiing at Cherry Lake with us, or
going "flats fishing" with their Dad, or going hunting,
or shopping, or boating down the Suwannee River.
Be with your children, love your children, and share
with your children.
Today's moments are tomorrow's memories. Your
memories AND their memories.
Have you hugged your child today?

Social Security, Change For 2008
Please send this on to as many people as you can. You've
got to read this all the way through To the bottom.
I HEREWITH FIRMLY STATE THAT I WILL NOT VOTE
FOR ANY POLITICIAN, REGARDLESS OF THE OTHERIS-
SUES, IF HE DOES NOT SPONSOR AND SUPPORT THE
FOLLOWING LEGISLATION. THAT INCLUDES EVERY-
ONE STANDING FOR ELECTION IN 2008. LET US SHOW
OUR LEADERS IN WASHINGTON "PEOPLE POWER"
AND THE POWER OF THE INTERNET. LET ME KNOW IF,
YOU ARE WITH ME ON THIS BY FORWARDING TO
EVERYONE IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK.
IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU ARE REPUBLICAN OR
DEMOCRAT!
KEEP IT GOING!!!!
2008 Election Issue!!
GET A BILL STARTED TO PLACE ALL POLITICIANS.
ON SOC. SEC.
This must be an issue in "2008" Please! Keep it going.
SOCIAL SECURITY:
(This is worth reading. It is short and to the point.)
Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions during elec-
tion years.
Our Senators and Congress Men & Women do not pay
into Social Security and, of course, they do not collect from
it.
You see, Social Security benefits were not suitable for
persons of their rare elevation in society. They felt they
should have a special plan for themselves. So, many years
ago they voted in their own benefit plan. In more recent
years, no congressperson has felt the need to change it. Af-
ter all, it is a great plan.
For all practical purposes their plan works like this:
When they retire, they continue to draw the same pay until
they die.
Except it may increase from time to time for cost of liv-
ing adjustments.
For example, Senator Byrd and Congressman White and
their wives may expect to draw $7,800,000 (that's Seven Mil-
lion, Eight-Hundred Thousand Dollars), with their wives
drawing $275,000 during the last years of their lives.
This is calculated on an average life span for each of
those two Dignitaries.
Younger dignitaries who retire at an early age, will re-
ceive much more during the rest of their lives.
Their cost for this excellent plan is $0.00. NADA! ZILCH...
This little perk they voted for themselves is free to them.
You and I pick up the tab for this plan. The funds for this
fine retirement plan come directly from the General Funds;
from our own Social Security Plan, which you and I pay (or
have paid) into, every payday until we retire (which amount
is matched by our employer). We can expect to get an aver-
age of $1,000 per month after retirement.
Or, in other words, we would have to collect our average
of $1,000 monthly benefits for 68 years and one (1) month to
equal Senator! Bill Bradley's benefits!
Social Security could be very good if only one small
change were made.
That change would be to:
Jerk the Golden Fleece Retirement Plan from under the
Senators and Congressmen. Put them into the Social Secu-
rity plan with the rest of us then sit back.

REPORT FROM AFGHANISTAN


Hard to be-
lieve that an old
codger like me
(fast approaching
60) could have a
contemporary in
the war zone. My
classmate from
Academy days,
Joe Kupko, re-
centjy returned to
his family in


National

Security
Joe Boyles
Guest Columnist


Montana from Afghanistan. Before Joe
left, he left me some thoughts on his war
service.
Joe is an ophthalmologist, the only
one among all coalition forces during his
recent tour of duty. Eye injuries abound
in Afghanistan, so Joe was a busy fellow;
that's the best way to handle a long sepa-
ration from your family stay' busy.
Because our servicemen wear excel-
lent eye protection, the injuries to our
troops from IEDs (improvised explosive
devices) and RPGs (rocket propelled
grenades) have been relatively few. The
average Afghan is not so lucky so Joe's
patients were largely Afghans. He'
worked at the only pediatric burn care
center in the country and a lot of his pa-
tients were children. It seems that the
Taliban and.al-Qaeda are adept at target-
ing civilian groups, particularly those
with children, for their suicide and IED
bombings. (Don't let anyone snooker you
by suggesting that these low-life thugs
are freedom fighters.) That is one reason
why only half the children born in
Afghanistan survive through their fifth
birthday.
Joe reports that his contacts with the
Afghan people are very positive. They
are full of hope and optimism, but con-
clude that if. the US-led Coalition pulled
out, their future would be much bleaker
in the face of the Islamic extremists that
terrorized them after the Russians left in
1989. One of the reasons for their opti-
mism is that with each rotation, the
Coalition is devoting more medical as-
sets devoted to teaching Afghan medical
people to care for their own people.
Every Coalition unit has rebuilding -
schools, hospitals, infrastructure and
public buildings as its' main mission.
Of course, this makes them targets be-
cause the Taliban is against any type of
reconstruction.
Back to the Afghan people they are.
prey to the extortion of Islamic funda-
mentalists who target their homes and
families. The fear is that if we withdraw
our support from Iraq, that Afghanistan
will face more terrorist pressure through
their western border with Iran. Current-
ly, most of the terrorist pressure comes
from the northeast mountainous border
with Pakistan.
In a Fourth of July message to


friends and fam-
ily, Joe spoke
about liberty
and made the
connection be-
tween our work
Today in
SAfghanistan and
i the principles
B! upon which our
,-,.... "- nation was
founded. Speak-
ing of the concept of liberty, he quoted
the Revolutionary War thinker Thomas
Paine from "The American Crisis":
"These are the times that try men's
souls. The .summer soldier and the sun-
shine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink
from the service of their country, but he
that stands it now, deserves the love and
thanks of mai arid woman. Tyranny,
like hell, is not easily conquered, yet we
have this consolation within us, that the
harder the conflict, the more glorious the
triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we
esteem too lightly: it is dearness only
that gives everything its value. Heaven
knows how to put a proper price upon its
goods, and it would be strange indeed if
so celestial an article as FREEDOM
should not be highly valued."
Our country is losing heart with our
struggle to introduce these ideas so far
from our shores to societies who have not
yet grasped the concept. But there are
those who have an understanding of it,
and if they and we avoid the urge to es-
cape these countries back to America
where it is easy; and if they can survive
the conflict and help others to know
that Liberty is possible however great
the odds and the struggle, then our he-
roes and patriots who sacrifice here will
not be dishonored. Thomas Paine said it
this way:
"It is not a field or a few acres of
ground, but a cause, that we are defend-
ing, and whether we defeat the enemy in
one battle, or by degrees, the conse-
quence will be the same. We fight not to
enslave, but to set a country free, and to
make room upon the earth for honest
men to live in."
I too would rather be home, and I am
not a warrior, a hero, but really a "sum-
mer soldier" who will return home in the
fall, but I want this to work. I want our
Liberty to be protected against those who
want to create a world of hate and con-
flict. I want this for my children and
their children. Again Mr. Paine said, "If
there must be trouble, let it be in my day,
that my child may have peace,"....... "for
though the flame of liberty may some-
times cease to shine, the ember can never
expire."
These are the words of patriots, from
the time of our nation's founding to to-

In Arrest

A Madison man was arrested for battery and resist-
ing arrest without violence on Saturday, November 24,
'following a foot chase.
According to a Madison Police Department report,
Patrolman David Jarvis was dispatched to a location on
Moore Street. Upon his arrival, Sgt. Chris Cooks was al-
ready on the scene and trying to get Dexter Davis (also
known as Dexter Dobson) to calm down. As Jarvis exit-
ed his patrol vehicle, Davis picked up a stick and threw
it in the directions of the alleged victim's children.

walking away.
Both Cooks and Jarvis deployed Tasers and all the
darts hit Davis' jacket. Davis took off 'the jacket and a
foot chase ensued from Moore Street through Plant Sub-
division.
The foot chase finally ended with the help of Madi-
son County Sheriff's deputies.
Davis was arrested and transported to the Madison
County Jail.


Own a Business? Put Retirement,
Succession Plans in Order
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
If you own a small business, you probably laugh at the notion
of a "9 to 5" workday. Unfortunately, many small-business own-
ers work so hard, and are so focused on the "here and now"-
increasing sales, controlling costs, attracting new customers, etc.
that they forget to plan for their own retirement and for the fate
of their business.
Don't make those mistakes. No matter how hectic your
schedule, take the time to set up a retirement plan for yourself and
a succession plan for your business.
Let's consider retirement plans first. These days, small-busi-
ness owners such as yourself have several good retirement plans
from which to choose as well as other options that may provide
even more opportunity. If your business has no employees except
you (and possibly,your spouse), you can choose a SEP IRA, an
"owner-only" 401(k) or an "owner-only" defined benefit plan. If
you have employees, you might want to explore a SIMPLE IRA
or a "Safe Harbor" 401(k). All these plans have at least two things
in common. First, your earnings can potentially grow tax-
deferred. Second, you can fund any of these plans with virtually
any type of investment: stocks, bonds, certificates of deposit,
government securities and more. You can even create a mix of
investments to reflect your time horizon and risk tolerance.
Beyond these similarities, though, these plans have different
requirements and features, so, to find the one that's right for you,
consult with a financial advisor who is experienced in helping
business owners.
Once you've established your retirement plan, it's time to
think about succession planning. Here are a few general recom-
mendations to keep in mind:
Always know what your business is worth. Your succession
plan may involve either selling the business or passing it to your
heirs, so it's essential you know the sales price or its inheritance
value. Once. you have this information, you can help draw up
plans for selling the business or helping your family pay estate
taxes.
Integrate your succession plans with your estate plans. Many
small-business owners just plan on leaving the business to their
spouse a move that could cut off other heirs from an inheritance.
This can be particularly troublesome if all your net worth is tied
up in the business a situation you'll want to avoid by having
some outside investments, in addition to one of the retirement
plans mentioned above.
Include key employees in your planning. If you'd like to keep
some key employees on after the business is transferred, let them
know your plans while you're still in charge. Of course, if you
plan on selling your business to one of them, you'll need to invest
and organize the proceeds in such a way that they can be efficient-
ly passed on to your family.
Plan for "what if?" A good succession plan must also include
plans for contingencies. To cite just one possible complication,
what if you want to leave your business to an adult child, but that
child dies before you? You may need to take many "what ifs" into
account when you construct your plans.
You invest your heart and soul into your business. To protect
that investment, work with your financial, tax and legal advisors
to create the appropriate retirement and succession plans. Even as
busy as you are, it will be time well spent.

Former Wrestler Found Guilty On Human


Trafficking Charges In Georgia


A federal jury returned guilty verdicts Wednesday
against former professional wrestler Harrison Norris
Jr., known in the wrestling world as "Hardbody Harri-
son," on multiple charges of sex trafficking and slavery
related to a scheme to force women into prostitution, an-
nounced Rena J. Comisac, Acting Assistant Attorney
General for the Justice Department's Civil Rights Divi-
sion, and David E. Nahmias, U.S. Attorney for the
Northern District of Georgia.
According to the charging documents and evidence
presented at trial, Norris kidnapped some of his victims
and lured others to come live with him by promising to
train them as professional wrestlers. Once he got the
women to his home, however, he instead forced them to
work for him as prostitutes. The witnesses at trial de-
scribed beatings Norris administered and threats he
made to bend the women to his will. On one occasion,
Norris head-butted a woman and threatened to throw
her through a hotel window when she would not engage
in sex with two customers.
Witnesses also testified that Norris imposed a strict
military structure in his home. The defendant assigned
each of his victims to a "squad" overseen by an "en-
forcer," a woman conspiring with Norris to keep the vic-
tims in servitude. Witnesses also testified that Norris
referred to himself as "the General"; sometimes made
his victims sleep with him in "the General's Quarters";
and pierced the victims' skin with a mark of their
"rank" in the operation. Numerous witnesses also tes-
tified about parties at which the women were forced to
have sex with numerous men and sometimes with other
women. One woman testified that Norris forced her to
sexually assault another woman during one of these
parties. Evidence at trial established that forced acts of
prostitution occurred at Hispanic nightclubs, in apart-
ments, at hotels, in the back of Norris' truck, and in
North Carolina and Northern Georgia. The victims also
testified that they were forced to have sex with Norris.
In addition to forcing the victims to work as prosti-
tutes, the defendant made the women work in and
around his two homes in Cartersville, Ga. Witnesses
testified that Norris required the victims to haul trees,
lay sod, and paint. The evidence at trial further estab-
lished that Norris set strict rules and fined the women
for such infractioiRs as talking too much or failing to ex-
ercise. In addition, Norris kept the women financially
indebted to him by charging them for cigarettes, medi-
cine, and food. Norris then told the victims that they
could not leave until their debts were paid, all while con-
tinuing to increase the debt he claimed he was owed.
The jury convicted Norris after two days of deliber-
ation. In rendering its verdict, the jury specifically
found that Norris' offenses involved aggravated sexual
abuse. Because of this special finding, Norris faces a
maximum sentence of life in prison.
"This jury has vindicated the rights of the numer-
ous young women this defendant exploited, abused, and
forced into prostitution. The Department of Justice
will continue to prosecute vigorously matters, such as
this one, involving the sexual exploitation of young
women," said Acting Assistant Attorney General Rena
J. Comisac.
United States Attorney David E. Nahmias said, "The
evidence at trial clearly proved that Norris used force
and threats of force against the victims forcing them to
work as prostitutes against their will. Sex trafficking
and other forced labor are forms of modern day slavery
and cannot be tolerated."
Human trafficking prosecutions such as this one are
a top priority of the Department of Justice. In the last
seven fiscal years, the Civil Rights Division, in conjunc-
tion with the U.S. Attorneys' Offices, has increased by
nearly seven-fold the number of human trafficking cas-
es filed in court as compared to the previous seven fiscal


years. In FY 2007, the Department obtained a record
number of convictions in human trafficking prosecu-
tions.
This case was investigated by special agents of the
Federal Bureau of Investigation and officers of the At-
lanta Police Department, Human Trafficking Task
Force.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Susan Coppedge and De-
partment of Justice Civil Rights Attorney Karima Mal-
oney prosecuted the case.

Audrey Hughey
Wood, who was 98, died
Friday, November 23, 2007,
after a brief illness at her
family home, now the
Hughey Memorial Person-
al Care Center, which she
founded and operated for
many years.
Services for long-time
Madison resident Audrey
Hughey Wood, were held
Monday, Nov. 26, at the
Pine Grove Baptist
Church.
She is survived by her
daughter, Dorothy Wood
Heard, and husband, Phil;
grandchildren Jim Heard
and Sherry of Stock-
bridge, Ga.; Tom Heard
and Dianna, of Rincon,
Ga.; and Helen Arnold and
Jeffrey, of Jonesboro, Ga.
She also leaves four great-
grandchildren. She was
pre-deceased by her daugh-
ter, Frances Wood Woods.
Mrs. Wood was the last
of the five daughters and
two sons born to Drew and
Cornelia Terry Hughey,
who homesteaded in Madi-
son County in 1904.
Born in Suwannee
County, her family moved
to Madison County, where
she attended school. She
moved to Miami after fin-
ishing school and later
married Charles Wood of
Birmingham, Ala. Two
daughters were born to
them there.
The couple later felt a
call to ministry, and loaded
up their family in a travel
trailer in January of 1945
and headed for Southwest-
ern Baptist Theological
Seminary in Fort \Worth,
Texas. After weathering, a
difficult family time, Au-
drey earned her associ-
ate's degree in social work
from Southwestern, where
she operated a cafe on
Seminary Hill to support
herself and her daughters.
Later she moved to
Austin, Texas, where she
taught kindergarten at the
Mexican Baptist Center.
Her ministry there was cut
short when she was called
on to return to Madison to
take care of her parents in
their old age.
She soon found herself
taking care of one, then
several, elderly ladies in
her childhood home on the
Valdosta Highway. After
her parents' death in 1967,
she continued a full time
ministry caring for the el-
derly ladies. Remodeling
the old home place, it be-
came "The Happy Rest
Home."
In 1984, a new wing
was added, giving a capaci-
ty of around 18 residents.
She continued this min-
istry until her retirement
in 1988 at the age of 79.
Daughter Dorothy, and her
minister husband, Phil,
moved to Madison to take
over operation of the as-
sisted living facility and
carry out her desire that
the ministry of the home
might continue. They


The family of the
late Frank Alexander
Barfield would like to
thank everyone for all
the acts of kindness
shown during our time
of bereavement. Per-
haps, you visited the
family, sent a flower or
card, said a prayer, or
even gave a friendly hug
or smile. Whatever it
was, the family is ever
so grateful and sends a
heartfelt "Thanks" for
all the love shown from
each and every one of
you.
Emma Barfield
and family


Audrey Hughey Wood


changed the name to The
Hughey Memorial Personal
Care Center in memory of
her parents.
Rather than enjoying a
quiet retirement, however,
this change merely freed
Audrey to continue the
mission work interrupted
so many years earlier. Af-
ter hearing Mildred
McWhorter of the Gano
Baptist Mission Center in
Houston, Texas, speak at a
Woman's Missionary
Union convention in Pana-
ma City, the new retiree
volunteered to assist in the
work there on a short term
basis. In January, 1991, she
began her third "short
term" in Houston, at the
age of eighty-one. In addi-
tion, she served with the
Southern Baptist Home
Mission Board in the
spring of 1990 at the Clay
Home for unwed mothers
in Marietta,. Ga., and also
took missions trips to
Alaska and Hawaii.
When her age and
health no longer allowed
her to continue mission
work, she returned to the
home she had founded, and
later became a resident
,there. Despite declining
health she continued to be
active in the Pine Grove
Baptist Church and Baptist
associational work until re-
cent years, and loved greet-
ing friends, family and vis-
itors to the Hughey Center.
She has for many years
followed her mother's love
for the Florida Baptist
Children's Home in Talla-
hassee. She often told of
her mother, Cornelia, sav-
ing egg money to give to
the Children's Home, and
in later years she was able
to help refurbish one of the
cottages there in honor of
her parents. The cottage
was dedicated to her and
named "The Wood Cot-
tage" in 1985. She also un-
derwrote two editions of
the history of the Florida
Baptist Children's Homes,
which were dedicated to
her.
The family asks that
those wishing to make
memorial contributions
send them to the Florida
Baptist Children's Home,


8415 Buck Lake Rd., in Tal-
lahassee, FL 32311.

ory of Ouida Canaday as
its "Remembered Artist"
of the Novem-
ber/December exhibit.
Canaday, a native of Lake
Wales. born in 1922,
passed away Dec. 11, 1994,
in Atlanta, Ga. She was
the niece of J.P. and Ina


Morrow of Madison and
the cousin of Art Guild
member Ina Thompson.
As one of the most
prominent artists in the
southeast, Canaday's
work included commer-
cial art, design, catalog
layout and illustration.
She was also an accom-
plished painter.
"Her painting tech-
nique changed through-
out the years, often from
show to show," said cousin
Ina Thompson who lived
with Canaday in Atlanta
for a brief time beginning
in 1969 to attend Georgia
State University and study
under Canaday. "She was
always .learning, experi-
menting all the time in a
variety of mediums."
Canaday founded the
Artists' Atelier of At-
lanta, which is still going
strong today, run by some
of her former students -
some of which studied un-
der Canaday for over 35
years. She also was a
founder of the Piedmont
Arts Festival, now called
Art's Festival of Atlanta,
one of the oldest on going
festivals in the United
'States. Among Canaday's
honors were the Gover-
nor's Award, the Neigh-
borhood Arts Center
Award for Selfless Devo-
tion to Service, and an
award from the Atlanta
Beautiful Commission.
Atlanta Governor Carl
Sanders named her to the


Georgia Art Commission
in 1966.
"Ouida changed the
lives and influenced so
many with her art and her
special way of teaching,"
said Thompson.

General Manager Ronald


Ronald Bass, General
Manager of Tri-County
Electric Cooperative, has
announced his intent to re-
tire as General Manager
on or about March 31, 2008.
Bass made the an-
nouncement to the Cooper-
ative's Board of Trustees
during its regular meeting
on November 13, 2007.
Bass has held several posi-
tions since beginning his
career with the Coopera-
tive in 1962, and has served
as General Manager since
1997.
"Mr. Bass has served
the Cooperative with dis-
tinction for over 45 years,"
said Board Chair Malcolm
Page. "We are sad to see
him go, but wish him the
best."
The Board of Trustees
will immediately begin a
search for a new General
Manager and will use the
executive search services
of the National Rural Elec-
tric Cooperative Associa-
tion, ("NRECA")... "The
NRECA., understands: the
electric cooperative busi-
ness and knows where to
find good people," said
Page.
The Board will consid-
er applicants from inside
and outside of the Cooper-
ative. Based on informa-
tion received from NRE-
CA, the Board hopes to
have a new General Man-'
ager on board by March 31,
2008, but it could take
longer.
During the Board
meeting, the Board and
Bass agreed that Bass's re-
tirement date as General
Manager will be flexible
and that Bass will remain
General Manager until his
replacement begins work.
Bass agreed to be available
thereafter to provide co -
sulting services and ad-
vice to the new manager.
"It has been a pleasure
to serve the cooperative
and its members for 45
plus years. Tri-County
Electric has been a great

HOT WEDDING


Ask your caterer about the availability of chil-
dren's plates. This is a practical and sensible way to re-
duce wedding expenses. Many couples aren't aware that,.
at a reduced cost, most caterers can create smaller por-
tions for the little people on your guest list, who nor-
mally don't eat as much as adults. In fact, often you can
request something which will have more appeal to the'
little guys anyhow, such as cheese burgers or chicken
fingers and fries instead of the more fussy food you and
your adult guests will likely be dining on. Children's
plates are typically available at dramatically lower costs
than your cost per plate for adults. While children's
plates make a great deal of sense from a couple of dif-
ferent stand points, particularly that of your budget,
many caterers will not mention their availability unless
you specifically enquire or request such a thing. This is
because they will make greater profit on adult plates.

Making your own invitations? Save money by using
reply postcards instead of the usual reply cards with en-
velopes. Postage rates for postcards are about 13 cents
less than the rate for stamping envelopes (Remember,
you must pre-stamp the reply cards for your guests!)
Plus, by using postcards you'll also save the expense of
envelopes. Simply print the response information on
ne side of the card, and your address on the other side.

UNIQUE WEDDING

IDEAS...
Looking for a unique alternative to "clink-
ing glasses" at your wedding reception? An-
nounce to your guests that in order for you to
kiss, they must stand up and tell a story, or share
a memory, about' either you or your fiance, or* .i"
about you as a couple. Then get ready to remi-
nisce, to laugh, and to brush away tears. Your
guests will be kept entertained and you'll have so.1
many more special memories of your big day to
look back upon.

Every bride is looking for unqiue ideas and
special ways to make her wedding more mean-
ingful. Here is-a wonderful and very touching
idea to honor the two mothers at the wedding cer-
emony But be certain to have lots of hankies on.
hand because this is guaranteed to tear up the
eyes of everyone present...
Ask your floral designer to design two de-
tachable floral sprays into your bouquet. Aft
your father walks you down the aisle, just before
he turns to leave you and take his seat, remove
one of the special flowers from your bouquet.
Hand it to him and give him a kiss. Let him know
in advance that.this will take place and tell him
that as he takes his seat in the pew with your
mother, he is to present the flower to her on your
behalf.
Then at the conclusion of the ceremony, as
you begin to make your way back up the aisle as
husband and wife, stop at the pew where your
mother-in-law.is seated. Remove the second spe-
cial flower from your bouquet and present it. to
her, along with a kiss, before continuing up the
.aisle.
Don't tell the moms in advance that this will
be taking place! It is the element of surprise
which helps to make this so very sweet and spe-
cial. There will not be a dry eye in the room...

Have real, live butterflies or white doves re-
leased around you as you step out of the church,
creating a true fairy tale effect. Your guests will
never forget it! Neither will you. Check your local
Yellow Pages for companies offering this service
in your area.

Assign someone to snap pictures of guests
as they arrive at the reception using an instant
camera. After the wedding, sign each photo, add
your wedding date, and include a short word of
thanks to each guest for having attended. Mail
the photos to the guests along with your thank-
you cards as an extra special memento.

Make it really special... Ask your mom,
grandmother, or a special aunt to be your matron .
of honor. Who better to honor on the single most
important day of your life? Touich her heart heart
in a way shell cherish for ever!

Can't come up with a unique gift idea for
your flower girl? What little girl wouldn't love a
Bridal Barbie? All the magic of your wedding day
is certain to capture her imagination & keep her
mesmerized. You can bet she'll spend hours reliv-
ing it over and over again in the fantasy world of
Barbie. This is one gift that is sure to be both
cherished and well used!

turn that $25 gift certificate into a $25 donation to her

Make a list and check it twice. Before hitting the
mall, list all the gifts you need to buy and how much
you intend to spend on each. Clutch that list as you
breeze through the impulse spending aisles. To stick
to your budget, if you go over on one purchase you'll
need to make up for it somewhere else.
Comparison shop online. Even if you decide to buy
your gifts in person, websites like www.shopping.com
and www.shopping.yahoo.com can supply creative gift
ideas and help you find great deals.
A little planning and a disciplined approach to
holiday spending can help ensure holiday cheer, not
holiday fear.


WHY BUDGET?


Budgets are often thought of as something necessary only for families of
modest means or people trying to dig their way out of debt: however even afflu-
ent families need a budget. Just ask pop singer, Elton John, Even earning $25
million a year, he had to take out a $40 million loan to pay off debts. Another cou-
ple in Alaska had to file for bankruptcy after amassing $461,000 in debt on 68
credit cards-despite earning a six-figure income.

Without a budget, it's easy to overspend, but there's so much a family can do
to eliminate wasteful spending. Start by tracking your spending over a couple of
months to identify expenses in each major expense category, such as housing, in-
surance, transportation, medical, groceries, cloth-
ing and entertainment. With a better picture of I
where your money is going, you can pinpoint where Cl
you might cut some waste, starting with the biggest ca|lial
expenses first. Here are some common areas of over- BanC II

also can save insurance dollars by purchasing the
rig4type and amount of insurance and avoiding unnecessary insurance.
tH6me. Typically the biggest ticket item in a budget is the mortgage payment,
yet many homeowners have not bothered to see if they can obtain lower mort-
gage rates. Cutting rates from 9.75 percent to 7.25 percent would save $1,713 a
year for every $100,000 in mortgage costs. Also, making major home repairs or
remodeling also is very expensive, so obtaining multiple cost estimates could
save you thousands.

Credit cards. As Elton John and the Alaska couple learned, excessive use of
credit cards is the nemesis for many household budgets. Carrying more cash and
leaving the credit cards at home can help. Shopping for lower interest rate cards,
or better yet, paying off the bill every month instead of incurring finance
charges, also can significantly cut costs.
Automobiles. Beyond shopping for good insurance rates, think carefully
about the cars you own or plan to buy Do you have too many vehicles, or more
vehicle than you need, such as an SUV you never drive off-road? This has become
an even bigger issue with higher fuel costs. Less expensive vehicles not only save
purchase and fuel costs, but are typically less ex-
pensive to insure.
Meals out. Americans love to eat out, and they pay

GOAL SETTING


By-Michael Dylan
As the new year draws closer
and many people are going into hol-
iday mode, some people are thinking
about the year ahead. It can be a
time for reviewing the year that was
and thinking about the year that
will be.
Many people will be coming up
with new year's resolution for 2008
even though they can't even remem-
ber what their new years resolution
was for this current year! While
many come up with a new year's res-
olution, they do so in a flippant,
light hearted manner. We may com-
mit to lose weight or save money, but
before January is even finished we
will be pigging out on chocolate and
buying designer clothes or fast cars.
If you're going to take the time
to come up with a resolution for the
new year ahead, why not make it a
serious commitment? Treat it like a
real goal that you plan to achieve.

* Make sure you are Realistic
about the Goal
The reason many goals are not
achieved is because they are unreal-

istic. If you are currently earning
$40,000 per year, with no savings,
and you want to be a millionaire
within the next 12 months, you may
be setting yourself up to fail. Lottery
should not be a part of your goal set-
ting as you have very little control
over winning money. Your goals
should be ambitious enough to get
you out your comfort zone, but real-
istic enough to be achievable.

* Get Clear about your Goal
Write your goal down in detail
with time frames and specific num-
bers or objectives. If you want to
lose weight this year, your goal
could be to lose a set number of ki-
los of pounds each month, with a to-
tal to be lost before the end of 2007.
Or you may choose to increase sales
by 50% for the year.

* Set Mini Goals
Rather than just focusing on one
major goal like saving 20 percent of
a home loan for a deposit, have mini
goals that are regularly achieved. If
you have set yourself 12 months to
save $12,000 your goal could be to


save $1000 each month. Which
means your one goal of $12,000
should be divided into 12 mini goals
of $1000.

* Be Committed
Understand that if your goal or
resolution is even slightly ambi-
tious, it will take time, possibly
money, dedication, persistence, and
a lot of commitment.It may require
further education, more work, risk,
and a lot of sacrifice on your part.
If you are serious about achiev-
ing your new year's resolution for
2008 it is worth taking the extra time
necessary to get clear about what
your resolution is and how it will be
achieved. Don't be flippant about the
next 12 months and use it to achieve
something worthwhile.
Some of the most common new
years resolutions will be to lose
weight, save more money, get out of
debt, improve education, find a bet-
ter job, join the gym, quit smoking,
and to spend more time with the
family A lot of these changes will
take a lot of commitment and dedi-
cation to achieve.


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.

friends. However, the look on the face of your loved ones
after opening the gifts makes all the effort worthwhile.
To help you in the task of Christmas gift shopping, we
have provided a number of tips below:
Deciding on the Recipients
Before you begin shopping for Christmas gifts, de-
cide on the people to whom you want to give presents.
Every person has many friends and relatives, some very
close, some not so close and some mere acquaintances.
Make a list of all the people for whom you will be buy-
ing gifts.
Deciding on the Price Range
The second step is to decide on the price range of
each gift, which will usually depend on the level of
closeness, with each person. Also set a price limit as to
how much you would like to spend on the gifts, in total.
Narrowing Down on the Gifts
Before going to the market, it is better to have a gen-
eral idea as to what kind of gifts would you like to pur-
chase. This will help you in saving time as well as avoid-
ing the effort of going to completely useless shops.
Hunting the Market and Comparing the Prices
The next step is to hunt the various shops in the
markets and compare the prices of different products.
This will ensure that you purchase the gifts from the
shop that offers the best quality gifts, at the most rea-
sonable price.
Sticking to the Original Choice
After going to the market, do not get too much influ-
enced by the gift items on display It is better to keep
yourself limited to the original choice made in connec-
tion with the gifts.


Buying the Gifts
The last step in the procedure of Christmas gifts
shopping is the buying the gifts and getting them
packed. Make sure to attach tags on each gift and write
the name of the person for whom the gift is intended.i
This will help in avoiding any confusion later on.

"This achievement
was due to generous giv-
ing throughout the dis-
trict, they deserve all the
credit," declared Superin-
,tendent Lou. Miller re-
garding the spectacular
effort put toward the 2007
United Way campaign
"Payroll deductions
and direct donations ex-
ceeded expectations, to-
taled $14,158," she added.
Jodie Price, Tech
Prep Coordinator and
Cheryl James, Grant
Writer and Management
Coordinator, supervised
the "Every Penny
Counts" campaign, al-
though they too gave all
the praise to the partici-
pating staff from every
school and department.

"We went around to
the schools and made
everyone aware of the
importance of the United
Way in Madison County,"
Price noted. 'And Super-
intendent Miller really
supported all our efforts
as well," James added.
Miller is indeed fortu-
nate to have professionals
like James and Price on
her staff who already do
a wonderful job support-
ing the school system.
To those accolades,
they can now add, "Char-
ity Warriors!"

He drove down the middle of the roadway forcing oth-
er motorist out of his path. Near the intersection of N.E.
Duval Street and N.E. Livingston Street Study intentional-
ly drove into the eastbound lane and forced a Madison Po-
lice Department patrol vehicle off of the roadway The mo-
tor home continued to force vehicles off of the roadway as
it continued westbound, ran the stop sign at N.E. Wash-
ington Avenue and turned southbound. At this point
Sergeant Deno attempted to overtake the motorhome to
clear the busy intersection of Hwy 90.
Study accelerated and veered the motor home into the
northbound lane and intentionally forced Sergeant Deno
off of the roadway Sergeant Deno narrowly missed two
power poles but he managed to maintain control, acceler-
ate and overtake the motor home. Study pushed Sergeant
Deno's patrol vehicle with the front of the motorhome,
causing it to spin out of control. The patrol vehicle struck
a roadway sign and narrowly missed a large oak tree near
the intersection of N.E. Sumter Street before coming to
rest.

Jones joined the pursuit and the motor home fled east-
bound on Hwy 90. Study completely ignored traffic signals
and other motorist as he aggressively drove approximate-
ly 70 m.p.h. in the 35 m.p.h. zone. Lieutenant Mark W
Joost, the Chief Investigator for The Madison County
Sheriff's Office, was at the State Attorney's Office in Live
Oak when he heard the radio traffic concerning the pur-
suit entering Madison County Due to the violent and reck-
less nature of the pursuit, as well as Study's violent attack
of Sergeant Deno, it was apparent how determined he was
in his attempts to elude capture. Lieutenant Joost re-
trieved his Stop Sticks and M-14 rifle from the back of his
unmarked patrol vehicle and headed westbound towards
the approaching pursuit.
At approximately 3:50 p.m., Deputy Andrews trans-
mitted that the pursuit was passing the entrance to
Suwannee River State Park in Suwannee County and still
traveling at over 80 m.p.h. At that point Lieutenant Joost
was in Falmouth and traffic was heavy in the area. Lieu-
tenant Joost placed his Stop Sticks on the roadway be-
tween his patrol vehicle and the logging trailer before tak-
ing cover behind the trailer with his rifle. Within seconds
the motor home approached in a reckless manner. There
were numerous pedestrians and parked vehicles lining
both sides of the roadway therefore Lieutenant Joost held
his fire. The motor home was traveling approximately 70
to 80 m.p.h. when it ran over the Stop Sticks. At this point,
approximately five or six marked units were involved in
the pursuit and Lieutenant Joost fell in behind them.
The Florida Highway Patrol blocked the 1-10 on-ramps,
so Study continued eastbound towards Live Oak. After
passing 1-10 on Hwy 90, Study erratically swerved towards
civilian vehicles and a Suwannee County deputy on the
north shoulder. Since Study was approaching Live Oak
through heavy holiday traffic, with complete disregard for
public safety, Lieutenant Joost chambered a round into his
shotgun and pulled along the left side of the motor home.
As the motor home continued eastbound at approximately
80 m.p.h., Joost fired one 12 gauge slug at the motor home's
partially deflated left rear tire. Study swerved violently to-
wards his patrol vehicle before continuing eastbound at
the same speed on the now flat tire. As the motor home
continued to swerve towards him, Lieutenant Joost accel-
erated to the front of the motor home and fired another 12
gauge slug at the left front tire. As Study continued his at-
tempts to sideswipe Lieutenant Joost's patrol vehicle,
large portions of the deflated left side tires peeled off of
the rims.
The motor home slowed to approximately 40 m.p.h. as
the pursuit entered the city limits of Live Oak. Law en-
forcement officers from the Live Oak Police Department
and Suwannee County Sheriff's Office blocked all of the


intersections. Study recklessly wove eastbound through
the heavy traffic, parked vehicles and pedestrians as the
motor home smoked heavily
Visibility was very poor due to the smoke and flying
rubber. As the pursuit approached the east city limits of
Live Oak the rear of the motor home erupted in flames.
Study made a final swerve towards a patrol vehicle
and a pickup truck on the north shoulder before the motor
home came to a stop. The motor home came to rest facing
a northeasterly direction. The front of the motor home
was on the north shoulder and the back of it was blocking
the westbound lane of Hwy 90. The flames were quickly
spreading from the back of the motor home. Lieutenant
Joost approached the left side of the motor home on foot
while several Lowndes County deputies approached the
right side of the motor home. Study complied with in-
structions to prone out on the ground and he was then tak-
en into custody without further incident.
Members of Suwannee County Fire Rescue extin-
guished the flames but the $238,000 motor home appeared
to be a total loss. A computer check revealed that the mo-
tor home was stolen from a dealer in Pontiac, Illinois. Pon-
tiac R.V noticed the motor home missing November 19.
Lieutenant Joost recovered evidence from the charred
motor home that appeared to link Study to numerous bank
robberies in Indiana. A computer check revealed that
Study was a violent fugitive. His history included bank
robberies which started in 1983 and resisting law enforce-
ment with violence. Study had active arrest warrants for
two counts of Bank Robbery from Boone County Indiana
and one count of Receiving Stolen Property from Putnam
County, Indiana. Hamilton County (Indiana) Sheriff's Of-
fice confirmed that Study was wanted for seven counts of
Bank Robbery in their county as well. Study shot at a U.S.
Marshal in Indiana as he managed to elude capture.
Study has local charges of Aggravated Assault On
Law Enforcement Officer With A Deadly Weapon and Ag-
gravated Fleeing And Attempting To Elude. He remains in
the Madison County Jail without bond.
