THE SPIRIT OF MADISON COUNTY


Sirmans Collection Site



Opening April 2


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison County Solid Waste and
Recycling Department will open its tenth
collection site in Sirmans on Wednesday,
April 2. A combined effort of the Solid
Waste and Recycling Department and the
Road Department, supplemented by Cor-
rection Officers and inmates from the
Madison Correc-
tional Institute,
went into the col-
laboration that fin-
ished on time and
on budget.
Waste Coordina-
tor Jerome Wyche
acknowledged the
great work and
team effort, extend-
ing his apprecia-
tion to county ad-
ministration as
well, saying, 'After
Jerome Wyche much strategic
planning, coordi-
nating and assistance provided by the
Board of County Commissioners, the
year long process is complete. The dedi-
cated work provided by these members is
very evident and the site is ready to open
its gates."
The Sirmans site is the third collec-
tion site located south of I-10 in Madison
County. The Board of County Commis-
sioners has made future plans to con-
struct another collection site on Hwy 14
South.
The construction of collection sites
throughout the, county have steadily ful-


filled a long-range objective of the Solid
Waste and Recycling Department to re-
move the green industrial collection con-
tainers from the roadways of Madison
County In addition, the collection of sol-
id waste and the reclamation of recy-
clable materials will be conducted in an
organized and controlled manner in an
effort to eliminate illegal dumping as
well as enhancing the appearance of the
county
The Sirmans site is constructed simi-
lar to the other nine sites in the county,
providing the same courteous service
that has become the standard at Madison


County collection sites. The operation of
this site will be managed by personnel al-
ready assigned to the Solid Waste and Re-
cycling Department.
The hours of operation will afford
maximum access to the site, taking into
consideration work schedules and conve-
nience for all residents. Because Sir-
mans is not a heavily populated area, the
hours of operation will be similar to that
of the Eridu site. Once the Sirman's site
is fully operational, an initial credential
check for site users will be in effect to in-
sure that only authorized residents and

...A Salute To Kristen and Cheltsie



How Time Flies When You Are



Having Fun.....


It has been almost a
year since Madison
crowned its "Miss Madi-
son and Jr. Miss.Madison
of 2007"....but it seems i
like yesterday..
I am devoting my col- Ma
umn space this week to
two, lovely young ladies
who have represented
Madison with beauty,
charm, personality, and
plenty of smiles.
Kristen Sirmon was crowned "Miss Madison
2007," a year ago, and our granddaughter, Cheltsie
Kinsley, was crowned "Jr. Miss Madison 2007."
The two girls have been to many ribbon-cuttings,
ridden in numerous parades, helped in other county-
wide events, and represented Madison County with
charm, and dignity


I salute Kristen and
Cheltsie on a wonderful
and rewarding year, and I
Wandering share with you just a few
i The Publisher of the many, many pic-
tures we have to remem-
ry Ellen Greene ber it all by
Columnist Best of luck goes to
both young ladies on an
unforgettable experience
and we wish them much
luck in the future.
I leave them with this thought; "God made each of
us unique, and there is a vast mystery and beauty sur-
rounding the human soul." ....Alan McGinnis
I hope both girls will always believe that there
has never been a package like "you" ever before in
history, nor will there ever be again.
We love you Cheltsie and Kristen....and salute
two beautiful and lovely ladies !!!

Letters to the Editor are typed word for word,

Why Do People Read Mail Found
In Dumpsters?
The people picking through the dumpster on SR 146
near SR 150 Sunday morning had torn open the garbage
sack I put there the night before and they were reading
mail addressed to me. One man was inside the dumpster
handing my mail out to a woman who was reading it.
Another man, evidently part of their group, was
picking through other dumpsters at that location.
When I objected to my mail being pulled out of the
dumpster and read by strangers, the woman replied
they were just getting out cans, clothes and things to
use. I had seen her reading the mail but she would not
admit it.
There is no sign at that place-forbidding people to
pick frdm the dumpsters. At least a sign could be posted
there stating that picking through the dumpster is ille-
gal and telling the amount of the fine. This is a filthy
practice and a complete violation of a person's privacy.
The risk of disease to the people or others they come in
contact with is another reason to stop this.
If I had gotten the license number from their little
black car and reported them to the police, could they
have been fined? We need to know how to deal with this
disgraceful and unsanitary behavior; and I believe peo-
ple in need should contact their church for help. Anyone
reading mail in a dumpster looks like a criminal.

suiting firm in Chicago, says that an array of economic
forces has led to the rapid rise in prices for corn, soy-
beans and other crops over the past year.
Hurt by poor weather, worldwide grain supplies are
at a 25 year low. The weaker U.S. dollar is making grain
exports more attractive to other countries. Global de-
mand for animal feed is soaring in developing nations,
and the demand from the U.S. ethanol industry is
putting even more pressure on prices.
"The outlook based on the world demand for grain
is going to continue to be high," Karp says. "Producers
are going to cut back when they're losing money on
every chicken they grow."
Clint Rivers, Pilgrim Pride's CEO, said in a state-
Sment that the company's total costs for corn and soy-
bean meal to feed its flocks in 2008 could hit $1.3 billion
more than two years ago. Rivers warned that food pro-
A ducers will be forced to scale back production of chick-
ens and raise prices. That will also feed inflation and
weaken consumers' demand for foods.
"We simply must find ways to pass along these high-
er costs," Rivers said. "While the decision to close a fa-
cility is always very difficult, we believe the actions we
, are announcing today are absolutely necessary to help
i bring supply and demand into better balance."

Thanks For Your Prayers

I appreciate all the prayers, cards and well wishes
during my two recent hospital stays. As many of you
know, I had to have emergency stomach surgery earlier
this month. Last week, I threw blood clots, which trav-
eled to my lungs and caused some infection in the lungs.
I give thanks to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for
providing me with a smart local doctor, Julie Schindler,
who was able to get me sent to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital both times where I received the medical atten-
tion needed to save my life.
Lee Day is fast approaching. Joe Odom has been cho-
sen this year's Lee Founding Forefather. Marge Heatter
has been named Honorary Miss Lee. Superior Trees has
been named the Grand Marshals for the Lee Day Parade.
Tammy Webb is this year's Citizen of the Year. Congrat-
ulations to all the Lee Day honorees.
Lee Day will kick off with a pancake breakfast at
Lee United Methodist Church. This will be followed by
the parade, recognition of the dignitaries and entertain-
ment. Entertainers will include the Gibbs Family, Heav-
en Sound and Lee's own Doyle Glass under the tent in
the booth areas. Vendors will display their wares of
great food, arts, crafts, etc. that day.
That's all the news for this week. Have a great week
and a beautiful forever. May God bless each and every
one of you!

Live! At Dowling Park Artist Series Hosts The Great Bear Trio


By Sally Q. Smith, Office for Residential
Services, Advent Christian Village
The 20th annual Live! At Dowling Park
Artist Series at Advent Christian Village
(ACV) will host The Great Bear Trio on
Friday, April 4, at 7:00 p.m. at The Village
Church. On that same day, the trio will
host a musical strings workshop in
Bixler Chapel at 10:30 a.m. On Saturday,
April 5, they will perform in the Magno-
lia Dining Room at Good Samaritan Cen-
ter at 10:30 a.m. and in the Dacier Manor
Dining Room at 3:00 p.m.
Originating in 2000, The Great Bear
Trio has become one of the nation's most


recognized contra dance bands. The trio
consists of teenage brothers, Andrew
and Noah VanNorstrand, playing twin
fiddles (among other instruments), and
their mother, Kim VanNorstrand, on pi-
ano. Andrew and Noah are said to have
"mastered the title of 'multi-instrumen-
talists' by being proficient at more than
twenty different string and percussion
instruments between them." In addition,
these 'multi-instrumentalists' have a
'multi-genre' (and mostly original)
repertoire, blending Celtic and Ap-
palachian fiddling traditions with influ-
ences from old-time Country, Bluegrass,


Jazz and Swing, New England contra
dance, Cajun/Zydeco, classic Rock, Al-
ternative, and Blues. One review from
the trio's web site www.vfiddle.com -
reads, "The VanNorstrand's ... musical
imaginations soar, creating melodies
and harmonies that are lyrical, exciting,
and original. This is music that really
makes me sit up and take notice and
smile."
Ticket prices for this performance are
as follows: ACV Members: $10, Adults
(i.e., non-ACV Members): $12, Students
(ages 13-18): $4, and Children (ages 5-12):
$3. Admission for children ages 4 and un-


der is free. Tickets are available at the
ACV Cashier's Office, as well as in Live
Oak at The Music Center and the Suwan-
nee County Chamber of Commerce.
Tickets may also be purchased at the
door on the evening of the concert.
For additional information about this
performance, please call Dick Grillo at
(386) 658-5557, or e-mail dgril-
lo@acvillage.net.
Live! At Dowling Park is sponsored in
part by the State of Florida, Department
of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the
Florida Arts Council, and the National
Endowment for the Arts.

AROUND MADISON COUNTY


Question: How much does a smile makeover cost?
I want to use my tax refund to fix my teeth.

Answer: I'm glad you asked. With the Stimulus
package just passed by Congress, the typical
household, married with two kids, may receive about
$1,800. This is above and beyond any tax refund you
are due. We have many patients that use tax refunds
to get a professional cleaning and then to brighten
their smile with dental bleaching. Bleaching can
range from $350 to $500. Other patients. may want to
go with high end treatment and change the color and
shape of their teeth. They may want to close gaps
between teeth and have that Hollywood Smile.
Porcelain veneers are ideal for the gorgeous smile.
Porcelain veneers and the new Lumineers for smile
makeovers can cost from $600 to $1000 per tooth. A
great idea is to have a cosmetic consult with your
dentist. All your particular options can be discussed.
It all depends on what you want. Insurance typically
does not pay for anything elective, so saving your tax
rebate for your cosmetic dentistry is a great idea.

"It was a good little
business," Bell nostalgi-

Selecting Your


Bridal Bouquet
Once you've set the date, selected a location, cho-
sen the formality, and selected the perfect bridal gown
and bridesmaid gowns that will set the mood and main
color scheme for your wedding, you'll begin thinking
about your wedding flowers. Since a walk down the
aisle would not be complete without flowers (and a
beautiful bouquet always complements the radiant
glow of an ecstatic bride), your bridal bouquet is prob-
ably the first floral arrangement you will begin for-
mulating in your mind.
Generally, the wedding style and formality you
choose will influence, if not determine, the style of
bouquet that you select. For example, if you are plan-
ning an ultra formal wedding, it's likely that your wed-
ding gown will have a royal or cathedral length train
and you'll wear a long veil. Your bouquets and other
floral arrangements should also reflect this formal
style. In contrast, for an informal wedding where
you'll be wearing a suit or a simple dress with a sweep
train or perhaps no train at all), you'll likely select a
smaller bouquet, nosegay, or single-bloom style. A
good rule of thumb is that your train length and wed-
ding formality should determine the formality of your
bouquet. Bouquets vary in size from small to large, but
they should always be proportional in size to the per-
son carrying it.
There are many shapes and styles of bouquets
from which to choose. Here are a few of the most pop-
ular styles:
Round
Simple, elegant, traditional bouquet that is suit-
able for both formal and informal weddings. Some-
times called a "colonial bouquet," this type of bouquet
does not have to be perfectly round in shape and can be
designed as a tight cluster for a denser look or loosely
arranged for an "airy" feel. The flowers chosen for a
round bouquet can influence the bouquet's formality
For example, roses project a more formal look while
daisies project a more informal and casual look.
Nosegay
A small, round-shaped, cluster of flowers often not
as dense as a traditional round bouquets. Nosegays of-
ten include more greenery, ribbon streamers, and are
mounted in a tussy mussy (a small, Victorian style,
metal or glass, cone-shaped holder).
Biedermeier
A European-influenced bouquet with blossoms of
different type and/or different color placed in a de-
fined circular pattern. A bouquet similar to the
nosegay and named for a German style of interior de-
sign.
Hand Tied
Generally round in shape, hand tied styles are also
referred to as clutch bouquets. This type of bouquet
consists of a simple 'gathering of flowers, which is
bound and tied with ribbon with stems left exposed.
Cascade
Sometimes called a teardrop, fountain, or water-
fall bouquet, this sophisticated and elongated style
features fullness and an abundance of blossoms at the
top of the bouquet then tapers downwards with flow-
ing foliage, floral streamers, or ribbons at the bottom.
This bouquet can be designed very dense with flowers
and foliage or can be more loosely arranged for an
"airy" or "wispy" look.
Crescent
A dramatic bouquet of arching flowers and foliage
that extend from the center of the bouquet and can be
designed to project a traditional or contemporary
look. Flowers can arch from either left to right or right
to left depending on preference. There are two types of
crescent bouquets, symmetrical and asymmetrical. A
symmetrical crescent features a balanced look with
arched blossoms and foliage of the same length on
both sides. An asymmetrical crescent features arched
blossoms and foliage of different lengths so that one
side of the bouquet is longer than the other.
Heart
A romantic, alternative shape bouquet featuring
two, full, arched shapes at the top while tapering down
to a point at the bottom of the bouquet. Typically the
traditional shape, often seen at Valentine's Day, sym-
bolizing love and romance.
Arm
Also known as a presentation or pageant bouquet,
arm bouquets feature a gathering of long-stemmed
flowers that rest naturally across the inner bend of the
elbow. A ribbon or bow is generally used to keep the
bouquet together. Popular floral choices for arm bou-
quets are calla lilies, gladiolus, orchids, long-stemmed
roses, delphiniums, and larkspur.
Freeform / Contemporary
As the name implies, this style bouquet often has
flowers or greenery coming out at various angles with
no specific, recognizable shape. Freeform and contem-
pdrary bouquets are most often designed with tropical
flowers and foliage that have unique shapes.
Oval
This bouquet is a combination of both a cascade
and a round. It is elongated in shape, but features
rounded shapes on both the top and bottom. Generally
the bottom is narrower than the top, but the overall
shape resembles an oval.
Single Stem
While not technically a bouquet, single stem
arrangements have gained in popularity over recent
years, as simplicity has become the trend. Single stem
designs generally feature a unique design element,

More than 360,000 Floridians
with epilepsy have a growing rea-
son to be concerned. According to
Karen Egozi, executive director of
the Florida Epilepsy Foundation,
there is a serious medical issue
that could cause the substitution of
their medications without their
-g knowledge.
"While small changes in med-
S) ication type or dosage normally
have little to no effect on patients
with other types of medical condi-
Stions, substitutions can have a sig-
nificant impact on patients with
) epilepsy," Egozi explains. "The side
effects of substitutions can include
breakthrough seizures, which ad-
versely affect a patient's quality of
life, and may result in injury or
S even death."
Dr. Basim Uthman is an associ-
S ate professor of Neurology and
Neuroscience at the University of
Florida College of Medicine. He is
also the director of Clinical Neuro-
Sphysiology Laboratories and assis-
tant chief of Neurology Service at
the North Florida/South Georgia
Veterans Health System. Utham ex-
plains, "It takes several visits to
the doctor, and a few blood tests
and dose adjustments to balance ef-
S__ ficacy and side effects and land on
S- a perfect dose for an individual pa-
tient. In the case of treating epilep-
m sy this fine tuning act resembles

ther side of the rope are highly
likely to result in a major event

without much warning; a fall with
severe injury"
Egozi continued, "Having a con-
sistent medication regimen is im-
portant to the patient's long-term
health-but obstacles such as med-
ication substitution continue to
hinder the ability of epilepsy pa-
tients to successfully manage their
condition. This is an issue of criti-
cal concern to the medical commu-
nity. With the right treatment,
many people with epilepsy are able
to live normal, healthy lives, free
from unforeseen seizures. When
their medications are substituted,
however, patients may experience
detrimental and life-threatening
seizures. These seizures can im-
pact their families, their jobs-even
their personal safety and the safety
of others.
"With 1.8 percent of Florida's
population affected by epilepsy, it's
easy to see how this risk has the
potential to influence a huge num-
ber of people in our state, Egozi
pointed out. "When someone whose
epilepsy has successfully been
managed suddenly has a break-
through seizure many of their ac-
tivities must change. They may
even lose their driving privileges.
This hinders their ability to care
for their family, to get to and from
work, etc. and may well adversely
impact friends and co-workers.
While these massive lifestyle
changes are necessary when a pa-
tient's seizures are not under con-
trol, it is unthinkable that they


would have to go through this due
to the lack of communication on
the part of pharmacists, patients
and doctors."
The Epilepsy Foundation of
Florida has recently taken new
Mteps to address the substitution is-
sue, supporting two bills currently
under consideration in the Florida
Legislature that would require
pharmacies to notify the patient or
prescribing physician before mak-
ing any substitution of an anticon-
vulsant medication.
"The Patient Safety Act repre-
sents a critical need to increase
communication between patients,
physicians and pharmacists,"
Egozi explained. "If we are able to
provide greater patient safety and
help more people with epilepsy suc-
cessfully manage their condition,
this will be a victory for Florida-
one that we hope will serve as a
model for other states throughout
the nation."
The Epilepsy Foundation of
Florida is also supporting legisla-
tion introduced in both the House
and Senate that would make the
failure to wear a seat belt a prima-
ry violation. Egozi explained that
head trauma is one of the leading
causes of epilepsy and encouraging
seat belt use is vital to reducing the
head injuries from motor vehicle
accidents in Florida. The Founda-
tion is also seeking increased fund-
ing from the legislature of $2.2 mil-
lion through a Community Budget
Issue Request.

MILLIMOR MAKES SCHOLARSHIP

OOMATI&M TO IOMFOR PAWRETS
'By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishig, Inc.
On Friday, March 14, the Madison County Foundation For Excellence in Educa-
tion accepted a scholarship donation from Joanna and Rick Millinor who made the
donation in the name of his parents, Pat and Christine Millinor. The donation will
be used to purchase a four-year scholarship for a qualified student from the Take
Stock in Children Scholarship Program.
Take Stock in Children (TSIC) is a comprehensive program that helps children
succeed by providing them college scholarships, volunteer mentors, student advo-
cates and tutoring, among other features. High standards, parental involvement,
and community support are crucial to the program's success. TSIC is rapidly build-
ing a track record of helping children stay out of trouble, graduate from high '
school, attend college and become productive citizens. -
In addition to its support of TSIC, the Foundation works in Madison County to
support teachers and promote community involvement in improving education.
The Foundation also has $500 mini-grants available to teachers to assist in reaching
these goals, as well as organizing the Teacher of the Year award. .
Faye Browning, President of the Foundation, accepted the donation from the
Millinors. "We are so appreciative of the support we've received from the commu-
nity and fine people like the Millinors," Browning stated.
Pat Millinor was the Madison County Tax Collector from 1948 until his re-
tirement in 1980. His son and daughter-in-law share the pride so many have for the
years of contribution the Millinors have made to Madison County.

Richardson, Bass And Culpepper Earn Master Degrees InNursinq

All are instructors in the NFCC registered nursing program


The Allied Health
Department of North
Florida Community Col-
lege announced that
nursing instructors
Marcia Bass, Angela
Culpepper and Michelle
Richardson have been
awarded M.S. degrees in
Nursing Education from
Florida State University.


The three, teachers
in the registered nurs-
ing program, are gradu-
ates of FSU's online
MSN Nurse Educator
program, which is espe-
cially designed to allow
the working nurse to in-
tegrate school into an al-
ready busy lifestyle. It

Here's How to Keep
Business "All In The Family"
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
If you own a small business, you've got a lot to
think about: attracting customers, holding down
expenses, keeping up with trends and competitors -
the list goes on and on. In short, you do everything
possible to make sure your business can support your
family. But if you want to keep the business in the fami-
ly after you're gone, you'll need to prepare a strategy -
and the sooner you start, the better.
Of course, you could simply transfer your busi-
ness to family members through the use of a will.
However, the value of your business could help con-
tribute to a considerable estate tax burden for your
heirs. (The future of estate taxes is unclear. In 2010,
the estate tax is scheduled to disappear -for one year
only. Unless Congress changes the laws before then,
in 2011 the exemption amount the amount you can
pass to your heirs, free of estate taxes will revert to
$1 million, with a maximum estate tax rate of 55 per-
cent.)
So, other than bequeathing your business to
family members, how else might you transfer it? You
can choose any of several alternatives. Let's look at
two of them.
Buy-sell agreements
Suppose you have a child who has shown a
great aptitude for your business. You'd be delighted if
your child took it over when you were gone, but there's
one problem: Your child can't afford to buy you out.
To help your child purchase the company, you might
want to establish a buy-sell agreement a legally bind-
ing contract stipulating that, upon your death, the busi-
ness will be sold to your child, at an established price.
To fund the sale of the business, you take out an insur-
ance policy on your life, with your child as a benefici-
ary. You could choose term insurance, which will be
fairly inexpensive, but you also might want to consider
"whole life," which has higher premiums but offers the
potential to build increasing cash value.
Family limited partnerships
You could also transfer ownership of your busi-
ness through a family limited partnership. Here's how it
works: Well before you retire, you decide to transfer
interests in your business'to a family limited partner-
ship, creating general partnership shares and limited
partnership shares. You hold on to the general partner-
ship shares and give the limited shares to your child.
At this point, you are still responsible for managing the
company. And, at the same time, you are reducing
your family's estate tax liability because you are
removing assets (the limited partnership shares) from
your estate. Furthermore, for gift tax purposes, you'll
get a "discount" on the value of the limited partnership
shares because, as "noncontrolling" interests, they are
theoretically worth less to the recipients.
When you die, only the value of your owner-
ship interest will be included in your taxable estate.
And your child can then take formal responsibility for
running the business.
Get professional help
Both a buy-sell agreement and a family limited partner-
ship are considerably more complex than described
here, so you will need to work with an estate-planning
attorney before you launch either of these arrange-
ments. Your attorney can also advise you on other
business-succession alternatives. Start your prepara-
tions soon. Even if you are many years from retire-
ment, it's nice to know you and your family will be
ready.

"Earning a Master's
Degree has enhanced
our teaching skills,"
said Culpepper. "It has
also provided each of us
with a better under-
standing of the adult
learner who seeks a
nursing degree."
Richardson complet-

per completed their de-
grees Dec. 2007.


MIKI RICHARDSON
Richardson's gradu-
ate research project was
in the area of stress
among first year nurs-
ing students. Bass and
Culpepper expanded
upon the line of re-
search and examined
different types of coping
skills and strategies
nursing students use to
ensure success. The in-
structors are already us-
ing some of the findings
from their research to
help NFCC nursing stu-
dents reduce stress.
They are continuing
their research and plan
to publish their findings
in the next year or so.


EdwardJones


Along with nursing
shortages at the local
and national levels,
there are also declining
numbers of nursing fac-
ulty available to teach
new students, mainly
due to retirements.
Richardson, Bass
and Culpepper are
among those who saw
the FSU online Master's
degree program as an
opportunity to broaden
their skills and open ca-
reer opportunities. Stu-
dents in the NFCC regis-
tered nursing program
are reaping the benefits.
Miki and Epp
Richardson have four
children. Angela and
Jack Culpepper have
three children and Mar-
cia and Donnie Bass
have two children.

MONEY & FINANCE



Consumer c4nd neuteorp Spending Challenged By 5,om e Cquity IDrop

Home Equity Drops Below 50% For The First Time Since WWII


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Home equity for the average American has dropped
below 50% for the first time since World War II, reflect-
ing a widespread decline in home values and relatively
loose mortgage practices during much of this decade.
The average homeowners' equity the market value
minus mortgage balance fell to 47.9% at the end of
2007, the Federal Reserve reported. The Fed also issued
revisions to earlier reports indicating that, for the first
time in record keeping dating back to 1945, home equity
was below 50% for the last nine months of 2007.
The newly issued number underscores the problems
for millions of Americans struggling to hang onto their
homes as their mortgage rates adjust upward and their
property values decline. It also has broader implica-
tions for consumer spending in the sputtering economy,
up only 0.6% in the last quarter.
Basically, as the "wealth effect" powered consumer
spending across the economy during the housing boom,
declining home equity fosters consumer caution.

"Consumers are growing more cautious, first, be-
cause they are now worth less, and they know it," says
Mark Zandi, chief economist for Moody's Economycom.
"And secondly, because they can't borrow against their
homes as aggressively as they did."
Economycom estimates that by the end of March,
8.8 million homeowners, about 10% of homes, will have
mortgage balances that equal or exceed the value of the
property The situation "is only going to get worse,"
Zandi added.
The decline in home equity reflects several factors,
including the popularity of low and no-down payment


mortgages and the surge in home equity lines of credit
and cash-out refinancing during the housing boom.
Home foreclosures rose to an all-time high in the fourth
quarter of 2007, the Mortgage Bankers Association re-
ported.
"The pain of declining equity is hardly uniform
across the USA though. In established neighborhoods,
many homeowners still have home equity of 70% or
more," says John Karevoll, real estate analyst at indus-
try tracker DataQuick.

Markets Rebound, Though

Outlook Still Uncertain


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Virtually every retirement program includes mutual
funds or some other type of stock equity investments.
Some prefer CDs and locally, many invest in land. Re-
gardless of one's preferred flavor though, each is tied
very directly to other parts of the economy At the end of
the day, stock markets, oil prices, foreign currency, real
estate, interest rates, defense spending, social services
and natural disasters, just to name a few, combine, mak-
ing the financial stage on which all must act.
Currently each element named above is in a height-
ened state of fluctuation and sensitivity Of course, the
average newsreader or television viewer can do little to
impact the big picture but there are definitely choices to
consider. Interestingly enough, among all available
choices, the most common by far is simply to do nothing.
Financial advisors have for years suggested that in-
vestors should not try to time the market, which as a
whole is.very good advice because of the strong tenden-
cy to get emotional. On the other hand, considering that
one's wealth is critical to his or her survival, simply
leaving it to the elements seems incredibly inappropri-
ate as well.
To address this issue effectively historical advice
may need a dose of modern application. Let's recall that
markets are, in the most basic context, a zero stum game.
Someone buys; someone sells. Someone makes money;
someone loses money
Actually, it isn't quite that basic because new re-
sources and relative pricing come into effect, but the
point remains. To ensure one's money is invested to
achieve the best combination of return versus safety, be-


gin by taking time to GET EDUCATED.
Just like one's physical health, getting educated on
available financial options is imperative. Financial ad-
visors can be worth their weight in gold for this exercise
or they may simply be commission seekers looking to
cash in on the current hype in the news, rearranging
portfolios less for the investor and more for the commis-
sions. There is an answer for this as well though: GET
EDUCATED.
Some say that religion, money and politics should
not be discussed at the dinner table. Ironically, one
would be hard pressed to find three issues that impact
life more powerfully than these three. So regardless of
where and with whom it's discussed, make sure it's dis-
cussed. GET EDUCATED.

cia/positions at bolh Prudentialand Smith Barney. He is
