The following things are now ghosts at Sentinel Field, Frank
Cantey Field and Colin P. K~elly Gymnasium on the North Florida
Communityr College campus in Madison:
*The smell of hotdogs and popcorn
*The metallic sounds off aluminum bats making contact with
baseballs and softballs
*Infield chatter among the players while an opponent stands at

*a The sound of a sizzling fastball making contact with a catch-
er's mitt
*Utilpires yelling "Play ball!" "Strike!" and "You're Out!"
*The sounds ~of sneakers making squeaking noises; arid the
"thump-thump-thump"' sound of the basketball on the court
The beauty of an arcing jump shot and it sails through the air
and strips the net .

on the` residential taxe roll. We:
have a golden opport un ity here

Log on to www.greenepublishing.com to answer this weeks question. .
"How do you feel about the elimination of sports at NFCC?"
Voting for this question will end April 28, at 9 a.m.


This is in response to the last, "Question of the
Week", 4 April, 2008 Ms. Meserve un-doubtdly conduct-
ed her interview of the Dirty Dozen, in the Parking Lot
at Miss Kitty's Long Horn Saloon,
Only one of the Dirty Dozen answered the question
about Madison County going "WET", with a concern
for the children. Mr. FUDD made it quite clear that he
was all for it as his tourist business would be greatly en-
hanced, if only people could get a glass of Wine. Anot~h-
er person stated that "Everyone"' goes out of the county
to buy alcohol. I guess that leaves me as a~ "Nobody".
One stated there' would be less accidents on the Val-.
dosta Hwy, what about MORE accidents on Base St. Still
another stated that being Dry might be uncivilized.


About 6 months age I, too, thought that perhaps
"WET" might be a good idea, how-ever, after having a
heated conversation with Mr. FUDD over a week ago,
amn now thoroughly convinced that bringing Fire Water
into and around our Teenagers is NOT the right solu-
tion at this timp. Perhalis after our NEW Hospital is up a
and ruiming, Madison County will have the facilities to
handle all the: bloody mangled bodies as a result of this?~
deadly substance.
I might add that a lot of people come here because it-
is DRY. : - -'

April 1St


By Ted Ensminger
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Almost 20 years later to the day, a second devastat-
ing tornado has struck the NFCC campus. The destruc-
tion of both tornados has left scars across the campus
and in the hearts of the faculty, students, staff and com-
munity But only one of these tornados was an act of
God.
Perhaps more devastating than the tornado of 1988,
this tornado was a direct hit on NFCC collegiate athlet-
ics
This past Wednesday evening, April 16, at the regu-
lar meeting of the District Board of~ Trustees for North
Florida Communit-y College, every student of NFCC,
both past and present, lost something. All 30,000 of us
who take pride in calling ourselves alumni, lost a part of
our collegiate history when the Board voted to cut all of
the athletic programs on the campus, effective the 2008-
2009 school year.
NFCC Women's Fast-Pitch Softball will be no more.
NFCC Women's Basketball wil be no more.
NFCC Men's Baseball, now ranked in the top 10 in
Florida, will be no more.
Forty-nine continuous years of building an athletic
heritage, one PowerPoint presentation later, the "Fight-
ing Sentinels" have lost the big fight.
As I sat in the audience at the meeting, I became
emotional. A deep sadness came over me when I real-
ized that this was really going to happen. I watched as
young athletes left the building, with long faces, looking
down, defeated. Athletes do not take defeat lightly It's
not in their blood. They are competitors and example
setters. They most often are leaders, but in a team way
How could this have happened? What does this mean
to the children that had planned to attend NFCC with
the hopes of participating in sports. What message is
this sending about our community? Where is the line
drawn, what gets cut next? Where have we gone wrong?
Did you know that a NFCC Altumni athlete actually
went on to pitch in a World Series? Nine have entered
into professional baseball with one currently playing
for the Arizona Diamondbacks. That possibility for fu-
ture NFCC athletes is rapidly fading.
I just don't know what to say to the young men and
women who put their hearts into their sports, their ef-
forts into their grades, and their trust into this school.
To say we have let them down is just not enough. Be-
cause, although everyone says that this decision HAD to
be made in order to protect the academic integrity of
the campus, I say "bonkers!"
I don't care why the decision was made. I care about


how it got to the point where the decision had to be
made. Surely somebody felt the train start to wobble be-;
'fore it jumped tjhe tracks! i
There is~ nothing good about this decision, even if i~
saves the school. There is nothing right about this dect-
sion even if it had to be made. There is nothing we can~
say to these young people that wil ever allow them to
forgive our generation. We failed, they didn't! .
Where was the fight? I must have missed it. I've'
heard that three years ago, the college went into the
community looking for ways to in~chillie venue, but
those efforts were fruitless. -
I also heard a board member ask the management
team if "all possible solutions had been pursued," and:
the answer that came back was yes.
But, I must have missed the letter that could have
been sent to alumni asking for help. And I did not see
or hear of any applications being sent to corporations ~
for sponsorships. I have not seen notice of any locally
company being approached by the school for title nam-
ing rights to the gymnasium or the baseball field. I:
have not received one email as an alumnus, asking me,
or my fellow graduates, if we had ideas on how to over-
come this shortfall. Nor did I read the press release
that could have been sent to all of the newspapers in/'
the surrounding six counties serviced by the college
that could have, told the readers that if you don't do
something quick, we're going to lose our athletic pro-8
grams.
I've always been a believer in, sports. Not just as i
competition, buit as a way to~ develop character and in-
crease~ morale. I view sports as entertainment and a$'
an excellent family and social venue. I view sports as I
view the arts, a necessity, not an elective. And I have a'
huge respect for those who have the discipline to par-
ticipate or the drive to be a coach. c
I know that likely what is done is done, but I also.
believe in miracles, I truly do. And I believe that ~if::
enough people get wind of this heartbreaking decii
sion, somebody wil know somebody who can do some-'
thing about it.
In the tenth grade, I had a biology teacher that
taught me the one thing that I remember most from
high school. Her name was Mrs. Richter, and she told
me, "Mr. Ensminger, where there is a will, there is a
way!" I have believed her ever since that very day.
SWh~o else does?
-Make no mistake about this Madison County. What
is done about this will speak volumes about what
you're prepared to do for our young people.
And your children are watching!

English, and
there is a huge
cultural divide
between the two
sides. Where the
English model
stresses econom-
ic freedom and
individual liber-
4 ty, the French
model empha-
sizes collec-
tivism. In the Fraser Institute's Freedom
of the World 2007 Annual Report, Eng-
lish-based nations occupy eight of the
first ten rankings of the freest
economies. It should not be a surprise
that the two most corrupt districts in
North America (Quebec and Louisiana)
and the most impoverished nation in the -
Western Hemisphere (Haiti) were al
founded by the French.
Steyn makes the point that there are.
five distinct differences. between the
economies of Canada and the United
States. First, the Canadian economic iS
more unionized, about two and a half
times the size of unionization in the U.S.
Second, the Canadian economy is more
protected than our economy. Protection-
ism interferes with free market forces.
Third, the Canadian economy is more
subsidized than ours, both by the central ~
government and the 'individual
provinces. This is the reason for the
long-standing dispute between lumber
trades of both nations. Fourth, the Cana-
dian economy is more centrally planned
than ours in the United States, again in-
terfering with market forces. And finally,
the Canadian economy is more heavily
taxed, eating about 37 percent of GDP. By
comparison, about 27 percent of the U.S.
GDP is consumed in taxeS.
Yes, those higher taxes permit "free"
health care and.low-cost drugs. But
health services are rationed in Canada
which drives many Canadians across the
border to buy health services in the U.S.
which are in short supply or nonexistent
in their home country. Also, nearly all of
the drugs distributed by Canada are de-
veloped in the America where the phanr.
maceutical companies are allowed to re-
coup their massive R&D costs.
There are some important warning
signs that the Canadian social welfare
safety net is on the brink of collapse.
The Canadian birthrate (1.5/couple) is
substantially lower than America's (2.1).
And if the 2001-06 data continues to hold
true, 75 percent of its population growth
will be by immigration rather than birt
rate. There simply won't be enough
workers to support the welfare programS
that politicians continue to promise.
Before you buy-in to the argument
that if the Canadians can do it, so can
we, be careful. There are significant dif.
ferences between our two nations, and
most of us are proud of those differ-
ences.


Canada, our
neighbor to the
north, draws a NatilODR)
lot of envy in
some circles be- Sec *@
cause of their na- V
tional health Joe Boyles
care program Guest Columnist
and cheaper, gov-
ernment subsi-
dized pharmaceu-
ticali drugs. If
they can have it, why can't we? Let's
briefly examine the North American na-
tion of Canada to see if it is a good com-
parison to the United States.
Canada and the United States have
roughly the same land mass, Canada be-
ing slightly larger. In terms of popula-
tion, there is no comparison for every
ten Americans, there is one Canadian. In
fact, Canada ranks behind the golden
state of California in both population
and size of the economy; Certainly the
frigid Arctic weather prohibits much of
the Canadian land mass from being use-
ful to support human populations.
Canada is a resource economy.
Where the United States is a itet im-
porter, Canada is a net exporter. .In fact,
80 percent of Canada's exports are to the
United States, much of that oil and nat-
ural gas. Canada is our largest foreign
oil supplier and has the second largest
(behind Saudi Arabia) petroleum re-
serves in the world. Fortunately, we have
a Inuch better relationship with our
neighbor to the north than many oil-rich
nations. ..
Two ideologies which dominate
Canadian culture and politics are mult~i-
culturalism and social welfare. Only six-
ty years ago at the end of World War II,
Canada possessed one of the world's pre-
mier military establishments, b~ut that
advantage was sacrificed over two gener-
ations to pay for the social programs that
pervade Canadian way of life.
Mark Steyn, in a recent lecture to
Hilsdale College's Free Market Forum,
points out that government entitlement
programs are secondary public policy
impulses that create a relationship like
that between a junkie and pusher. Once
the junkie is "hooked" on whatever sub-
stance he expects, he wants more of the
same. The "pusher" politician is only too
willing to comply; Whereas the founder
fathers in America identified our rights
as "liife, liberty, and the pursuit of happi-
ness, the equivalent rights in Canada
would be "peace, order and good govern-
ment."
Ronald Reagan famously said that,
"We are a nation that has a government,
not the other way around." What would
be the Canadian reaction to that state-
ment?
The driving force behind Canadian
multiculturalism is cultural back-
ground. In the old Canada, half of it was
French-based while the other half was

The tires of the .2006 Polaris ATV struck the loose
materials and the ATV veered sharply to the left and
traveled into a ditch. The vehicle then collided into a
large tree.
Miler was ejected from the ATV and received seri-
ous injuries. Madison County EMS transferred him to
South Georgia Medical Center in Valdosta, Ga.
According to his mother, Sheree Miler, Kevin broke
both collarbones, three vertebrae in his back and two
ribs. He was in the intensive care unit (ICU) for a couple
of days but has since been moved to a room. He has two
small fractures in the skull, which doctors say will heal
on their own, a gash on the side of his head and a small
pinhole puncture in his lung, which~doctors don't expect
to bother him. Doctoi-s also put a plate in to help him
heal faster.
Sheree Miler said that her son would probably be
operated on Wednesday.
"Basically, because there's no neurological damage,
it's looking good right now," Sheree said.
Units from the Madison County Sheriff's Office and
Pinletta Volunteer Fire Department assisted at the scene.
FHP Trooper Berry Crews was the investigating of-
fiCOT.

in the season," Connie
said.
Connie said she would
support Lindsey in what-
ever decision she makes
concerning her softball ca-
reer
."She has really been
hurting over this," Connie
said. "I'm very disappoint-
ed the way this was han-
dled. It's going to be very
hard for girls to find schol-
arships."
Jefferson County
Sheriff David Hobbs,
whose daughter Brittany
played for the NFCC soft-
ball team, spoke to Fran
Hunt, the sports reporter
for The Monzticello News.
She said, "It's a shame
for a student athlete in
Lindsey Day's case. Other
schools have already re-
cruited their. players for
the following year."
Brittany Hobbs' schol-
arship at NFCC will be
honored, but David Hobbs
said that he ~understood
that Dayr's scholarship
would not be honored.
Rosalyn Bass, Lind-
sey's high school coach,
(speaking to Hunt) said,
"It's pretty sad when ath-
letes go d'rom .Aucilla to
NFCC to play sports local-
ly and then it's pulled out
from under them."
ACA Principal
Richard Finlayson also
spoke to Hunt and said
that he is disappointed
that~ the college had to pull
the sports programs but
that he understood that
the Board of Trustees had
the students' best interest
at heart. He said that it
could also never happen at
ACA.
Frederick Mickler, a
retired Jasper .physician
who was originally from
Madison, was the voice of
the Sentinels' baseball
team for 15 or 16 years. He
said that he was very dis-
appointed to hear about
the vote to suspend sports
at NFCC.
"Sports was real plus
for the county and town to
have a school that com-
petes with Panama City
and Pensacola," 1Vickler
said. "For Madi~son to be
compared with them was a
real plus.' '
Mickler said he~hopes
that there is some way to
counteract the program's
dismissal.
Mike Harris, the ath-
letic director at Lafayette

cont from page 1A


High School in Mayo, said,
"I hadn't really thought
too much about it. It's un-
fortunate because of the
budget cuts. We did have
people from here that con-
tinued their academic and
athletic careers at NFCC."
Mike Harris contin-
ued, saying, "It's some-
what understandable with
the budget cuts."
He said that this past
year, no one from
Lafayette County signed to
play basketball and he was
not aware of any who
signed to play baseball or
softball at NFCC. He said
that it had been a few
years since anyone at
Lafayette had signed to
play for NFCC.
Price Harris, who


grew up in Madisori! i
watching the Sentinels:
play ball, and who is now
the head football coach
and athletic director at
Taylor County High
School in Perry said, "I
hate to see it happen. It's'i
put one girl hei'e who
signed with the Sentinels
in a bind. There are so:
many people who go play
ball there and then goi-
somewhere else after they~;
.graduate to play ball. It's a
shame, but, on the other~~
hand, I understand. Sports:
are expensive and you get
caught in a budget crunch.
I don't think anyone (ih"-
the NFCC administration
and on the Board of:K
Trustees) wanted to see it~
happen."


ed to abandon the college's
athletic program for' one
year and probably more at
its Tuesday, April l5, meet-
ing. The news did not sit
well in Madison and sur-
rounding counties.
Jackie Johnson, a
Madison businesswoman,
who was among the col-
lege's first baseball boost-
ers when the program was
reinstated in the 1980s,
was among those upset by
the vote.
"I'm distressed be-
cause our kids are lacking
in so much," Johnson,
who was related to Frank
Cantey (who the softball
field at NFCC is named af-
ter) through marriage,
said. "We need to hold on
to all the recreation that
we can."
Cantey donated prop-
erty to the college and the
softball field was named
after him.
A 1964 graduate of the
college, Johnson elaborat-
ed, saying, "We were mak-
ing so much progress with
the new recreation park
and everything. The peo-
ple who are running it are
doing a great job and then
we have to pull the athletic
program at the college."
Johnson said that she


college's academic pro-
gram but that sports were
needed also at the college.
In Suwannee County,
Alex Flowers, president of
that county's baseball
boosters, said he thinks
that NFCC canceling
sports is just the tip of the
iceberg.
"I think we will see
more and more of them do
it," he said.
Flowers noted that
Lake City Community Col-
lege, had already done
away with their athletic
program and that the cut-
backs in sports are hitting
a lot closer to home.
"They have been talr-
ing about cutting out some
of our middle school
sports here," he said.
Flowers has a son,
Clent, and a step-daughter,
Erika, who are involved in
the sports program at
Suwannee High. Erika is a
cheerleader and Clent is a
baseball player.
A junior this season,
Clent is looking at playing
college baseball.
"They (the NFCC base-
ball team) finally got good
this season and now
they're cutting the pro-
gram," Alex, Flowers said.
"I'm afraid it's going to
,,.,


education."
Flowers said he was
sure that the trustees
could find the money for
sports if they would just
look for it. One suggestion
that he gave was for the
college teams to play a 20-
game schedule like high
schools instead of the typ-
icall 40-game schedule.
"Half of the games
would be at .home, any-
way," Flowers pointed out.
"They wouldn't have a lot
of money in travel for
those games and the local
games might generate rev-
ene."
Flowers said that the
booster club for Suwannee
High pays for most of the
school's baseball1program.
He said that the school dis-
trict there had only allot-
ted $1,500 for the program
and that the -uniforms
alone had cost over $8,500.
"Why can't the college
have boosters help offset
some of their costs?",
Flowers questioned.
Flowers also said that
he would like to know
where the money that was
supposed to be generated
by the Florida Lottery for
education went. .
The lottery, which was
instituted in the 1980s, was
supposed to provide more
money for education; how-
ever, some legislators, see-
ing the extra money com-
ing in from the lottery, cut
what was already spent for
education and replaced it
with lotterjr dollars.
Connie Day, mother of.
Aucilla Christian Acade-
my star player and Madi-
son resident Lindsey Day,
said her daughter also had ~
a bitter pil to swallow.
"She had wanted to
play. at North Florida
since she was a little girl,"
Conanie Day said.
Connie added that
Linldsey, who had signed to
play for NFCC, still had
not heard whether the col-
lege would honor the
scholarship that she
signed with head softball
Coach Jeff Dabney.
Connie said that Lind-
sey had spoken to a couple
of other colleges since, but
one! coach had told her
that the roster for her
team was already full for
next season,
"People tell me that
there is still time (for an-
Other scholarship' to be
signed) but it's kind of late

There were more than 280 arrests nationwide and re-

Barbara Gonzales, U.S. Immigrations and Customs

Put Your Tax Rebate
to Work
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
You may not be familiar with its formal name the:
Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 but you're almost cer-
tainly aware of its key outcome: a tax rebate. Now comes
the big question: What should you do with it?
If you spend it, you will do your part to help stimulate
the economy. But by investing the rebate, you could help
speed your progress toward your long-term: financial
goals, such as a comfortable retirement.
Before we look at investment possibilities, let's quick-
ly go over the "nuts and bolts" of the plan:
How much? You can receive up to $600, if you're fil-
ing as an individual, or $1,200, if you're filing a joint
return. Plus, you can get ain additional $300 for each qual-
ifying child. However, the size of your rebate will be
reduced by $50 for.every $1,000 you earn above adjust-
ed gross income (AGI) limits ($75,000 for singles and
$150,000 for married couples).
When? The IRS will begin mailing Stimulus Act rebate
checks in May. If you've selected the "direct deposit"
option for receiving your: 2007 income tax refund, your
Stimulus Act rebate will be placed jn the same account
.that you've chosen for your refund.
Investment Choices
Here are a few possibilities for investing your rebate:
Traditional or Roth IRA Suppose that you are a joint
filer and did receive the full $1,200 rebate. If you put that
$1,200 in an investment that earned a hypothetical 7 per-
cent return, and that investment were placed in a tradi-
tional or Roth IRA, the money would grow to more than
$9,000 in 30 years. (This figure does not include fees,
commissions or expenses, all of which would reduce your
investment returns.) Keep in mind that traditional IRA
withdrawals are taxable, whereas a Roth IRA's earnings
have the potential to grow tax free, provided you don't
begirl taking withdrawals until you're at least 59-1/2 and
you've had your account for at least five years.) AII invest-
ments within these accounts do fluctuate in pnice, so it is
possible to have more, less or the same amount when
you sell your investments.
Section 529 savings plan In a Section 529 college
savings plan, you put money in a specific mix of invest-
ments. Section 529 plans are tax deductible in some
states for residents who participate in their own state's
plan. AII withdrawals will be free from federal income
taxes if the money is used for a qualified college or grad-
uate school expense of your child or grandchild.
(Withdrawals for other reasons may be subject to federal,
state and penalty taxes. Also, Section 529 distributions
will appear as income on the child's tax return, which
could affect financial aid calculationss)
Emergency fund It's a good idea to put six to 12
months' worth of living expenses in a liquid account for
use as an "emergency fund." Without such a fund, you
might be forced to liquidate some of your long-term
investments to pay for things such as a coStly car repair
or an unexpected medical bill.
A reate like this one desn't come akmng eveordyear so

Named for property
contributors of the pro-
ject, a Madison "SAMS
CLUB" is on the horizon.
This SAMS CLUB wil
not be retailing however,
In this instance, SAMS is
derived from two family
names, Savage and Mc-


Cray, who each generously
made donations to create a
multi-purpose facility to
be located on Dade Street,
just west of downtown
Madison.
Timely and sensitive
to community needs, this
facility will be offering vi-
tal community services
through a multi-purpose


facility slated to accommo-
date civic gatherings, pro-
vidle tutoring and after-
school programs, even
programs providing criti-
cally needed support ser-
vices for recently released
prisoners so they may
reenter the community
with a real possibility of
becoming contributors


rather than resuming a
lifestyle that leads back~to
crime.
Supporters in this ef-
fort include several popu-
lar and active community
volunteers including De-
-lores Jones, Cora Peacock
Wyche, Gwendolyn John-
son and Glenda Branch,
who recently participated


in a fish fry held on the
Madison County Court-
house lawn to raise money
for materials needed to
renovate an existing struc-.
ture that was brought to
the location.
During the Vision 2020
planning sessions held in
March, conversation re-
turned often to the need
for community and faith-


based participation in or-
der to address many of the
challenges that are men-
tioned. When its services
are fully rolled out, SAMS
CLUB may serve as one of
the blueprints for that
awesome objective.

During their lunch
meeting of April 15, the
Madison Lions Club reit-
erated their mission to
support the needs of Madi-
son County, grow the orga-
nization and continue to
participate in vital vision
health services performed
worldwide.
The Lions agenda also
includes ongoing intro-
ductions to healthcare
providers, support of


dozens of local charity
events throughout the
year, not to mention gath-
erings in support of one
another.
Madison Lions Presi-
dent Lee FerDon is com-
mitted to keeping the orga-
nization at the center of a
variety of local priorities.
The bottom line re-
mains the same, though,
helping those deserving
men, women and children
who can't help themselves,
people simply needing a


helping hand.
According to the Lions
Club International web-
site, located at
www.1ionsclub.org, "Lions
are an international net-
work of 1.3 million men
and womeri in 202 coun-
tries and geographic areas
who work together to an-
swer the needs that chal-


lenge communities
around the world."
The Madis'on Libns
Club meets weekly at 12
noon at the Madison Coun-
ty Memorial Hospital. Vis-
itors are always welcome.

BRIDAL GUIDE


A New Chapter


Byse you gsi s, many of us filled notebooks with
scribbles of our school crushes. While some of us
penned secret notes to the apples of our eye, others of us
daydreamed of marriage and becoming Mrs. So and So.
Some of us even wrote down what our new names
and initials would be. While most of us did not marry
our childhood crush, we did get new initials, and for
many brides to be, these initials present the perfect op-
portunity for personalizing the wedding.
Monogram-themed `weddings are not new. For cen-
turies, brides have included monograms in various as-
pects of their weddings as a symbol of their commit-
ment and the new chapter in life they are about to start.
If you are interested in having a monogram-themed
wedding, you must first decide how you are going to use
the monograms of both you and the groom. Will you use
them in combination, separately or .both ways? To an-
swer this question, you might want to consider the items
you plan to monogram. On smaller pieces, like cham-
pagne flutes and napkins, space is limited and a combi-
nation of monograms may not fit. In this case, it might
be best to place your monogram on half the flutes and
napkins and the groom's monogram on the other half.
Almost anything can be monogrammed. Many
brides choose to have their invitations, envelope seals
and postage stamps monogrammed, while others focus
specifically on items in their reception, like table linens,
placecards and napkins. The majority of wedding deco-
rations from aisle runners to ringbearer's pillows to cen-
terpieces can be monogrammed Wedding favors are an-
other personal monogrammed favorite.
As you are selecting items to monogram, keep in
mind that some of your more conservative guests may
disapprove of your new initials appearing on anything
dealing with ents pror t yu a tal edtding cer r

list, yiou thigh Wdfit to'stiik to u sin g monogra8 ms at your
receptiontonly : I': "
Be creative, but conservative, in the use of your
monograms. Hire a designer to etch them ini your wed-
ding colors and incorporate them throughout the room.
Don't pile them one upon another. 'Monogrammed
table linens, centerpieces, placecards, champagne flutes
and napkins can all be a bit too much.
When used correcty, monograms can make a big im-
pact and add flair to any wedding. Mark the union of
your love and the start of your new life with a mono-
gram-themed wedding.

There is nothing set in
stone that says everyone
has to observe the same
rules when it comes to se-
lecting and sending their
wedding invitations. It's
only natural for you to
want to put your own per-
sonal stamp on your wed-
ding invitations. After all,
it is your special day.


wedding, your invitations
should illustrate that
theme, of course, but ulti-
mately, the choice is yours.
Selecting a favorite
font or lettering style is
one way to personalize
your, special day: There are
various styles of invita-
tions to choose from: ac-
cordion style, tri- or bi-
fold, or a single sheet of
paper. 'Remember, formal,
lavish weddings require a
forrital style, while sim-
pler, casual weddings re-
quire an informal style.
There are also hundreds of
styles of paper to choose
from in various thickness-
es.
Buying your invita-
tions will offew you less of
a selection than if you
make them yotirself. Do-it-
yourselfers need .to re-
member that thicker pa-
per works better for invi-
tations that will not be
folded and medium-
weight paper for invita-
tions that will be folded.
Depending upon your cal-
ligraphy skills, you could
also' use parchment paper
for your invitations..
Along with the invita-
tions, you will need RSVP
cards and stamped return
envelopes. You can make


your own RSVPs and en-
velopes to match your in-
vitations or buy them
from a stationery store.
RSVP cards and envelopes
are available for most in-
vitations.
There is some eti-
quette involved in the
wording and addressing of
invitations. This includes:
*Spell out all dates
and times. Don't use 5:00
or October 16. Instead,
state "five o'clock in the
evening on the sixteenth
of October."
*Abbreviate Mr., Mrs.
and Jr., but spell out titles
like "doctor."
*Only use punctuation
between the city and state
Sand after abbreviations.
*Spell out all states on
envelopes.
*Don't include an
RSVP for invitations to
the wedding ceremony
only.
*Indicate on the inner
envelope of invitations to
single guests that they can
bring a guest.


By Ronda Addy
The type of wedding
invitation you choose goes
a long way toward setting
the overall theme and feel
of your wedding. If you
are having a casual wed~-
ding, you don't want invi-
tations with a lot of frals.
You do, however, want
your invitations to look
more professional than
those for a kid's birthday
party
The number of guests
you are inviting to your
wedding may determine
~whether you make your
own invitations or pur-
chase them. If you are hav-
ing a small to medium-
sized wedding, creating
your own invitations won't
be that hard. If you are
planning a large wedding,
creating your own invita-
tions will take alot of time
and effort you probably
don't have.~ Regardless
which way you go, make
sure you proofread your'
invitations for~errors and
create or purchase just the
right amount
There really is no
right~ or wrong design for
wedding invitations. It is
your wedding and the invi-
tations should reflect that.

nestion: My son knocked his front tooth loose and
I pushed it back in. Was that the right thing to do?

Answer: Absolutely! The best thing for a loose
tooth or a tooth that have- been completely knocked
out is to replace the tooth in the socket as soon as
possible. If you can niot replace the tooth (or don't
want to), ~place the tooth in cold, milk and call your
dentist. Pick up a pint of milk at the convenience store
if you have to. It will be cold, and it is much better
than hospital saline since it is full of nutrients the
tooth needs, and it is also a great container to transport
the tooth.
The long term success improves greatly if the tooth
can be replaced within two hours. The dentist will
replace the tooth and stabilize the tooth with a splint
while it is healing. Lastly, it is important to have a
follow-up visit within 3 weeks and 6 weeks to make
sure the nerve in the tooth is healthy. If the nerve is
not healthy, early treatment can save the tooth for
many years.

oping high' blood pressure
6.Helps reduce blood pres-
sure in people who already
have hypertension
7. Lowers the risk of devel-
oping non-insulin-dependent

Have you recently tak-

ty involving a lot of run-
ning? Are you experienc-

that you are considering

Don't.
See your doctor in-

shin splints.
Shin splints are coni-
mon in runners and ath-

with frequent stops and

undue stress is placed on
the shinbone and connec-

clude shin tenderness,
lower leg pain, redness
and swelling. Any pain ex-
perienced wil usually sub-
side when the activity is
stopped. Over time, howev-


er, the pain may become
continuous.
There are a number of
options for dealing with
shin splints. An individual
can try resting, icing and
elevating the area.
They may also take an
over-the-counter pain re-

helps, the individual may
need to consult a sports in?-

will first examine the area
to make sure the individ-

site, www.disability-

you will find tools that
can help you estimate
what your income and

nancial .review, facts


and figures about dis-
ability, real-life stories,

tips for a. healthy

"1Broader awareness
and ~education about
available disability pro-
grams is a critical start-
ing point. to helping
more workers assume
responsibility for their
long-term financial se-
curity, which continues
.to shift to the American
worker," Taylor says.
"When workers under-
stand the impact of dis-
ability on their finances
and the resources avail-
able to them, they will
take more informed ac-
tions to protect' their fi-
nanicial stabilityr."


Ever wonder what
you would do for money
if you couldn't work be-
cause of injury or ill-
ness? If not, you're not
alone; more than half of
all Americans have ney-
er discussed with any-
one how they would con-
tinue paying their bills
if they became disabled,
a new survey reveals.
The good news is
that, with a little plan-
ning, you can lessen the
potential financial im-


pact of experiencing a
disability.
"While there may
not be much you can do
about the housing crisis
or the recession or
how either of those fac-
tors will affect the econ-
omy you can do soine-
thing about the finan-
cial strain that a disabil-
ity can have on your per-
sonal financial securi-
ty," says Robert Taylor,
president of the Council
for Disability Aware-


ness, which sponsored
the recent survey on
American's knowledge
of and attitudes about
disability.
Among the findings
of the CDA Worker Dis-
ability Planning ahd
Preparedness Study:
More than half (56
percent) 6f all workers
have never discussed
how they would manage
during a disability.
While most work-
ers rate their ability to
earn a living as the most
important factor for
their long-term finan-
cial security, two out of
three don't even think
about disability when
they Idiscuss financial
planning.
Most would rely on
a patchwork of income
sources, including help
from family and friends,
retirement savings,
home equity loans and
credit cards if they were
out of work for an ex-
tended period of time.
Sixty-two percent
of workers believe they
would count on a
spouse's or partner's in-
come for support, de-
spite the fact that the
majority of American
households even those
that are two-income -
live paycheck to pay-
check and have a nega-
tive savings rate.
.~:.Ariericans are also
coilfused or unaware of


disability income pro-
grams that may be avail-
able to them. The survey
indicates:
Half of the workers
whose employers pro-
vide sick leave benefits
don't feel they under-
stand them very well.
Of those workers
whose employers offer a
long-termn disability pro-
gram, just 28 percent
said they understood
the program.
One in three sur-
veyed workers does not
understand or is not
aware of Social Security
Disability Insurance, a
key disability program
for 150 million workers
across America.
"The survey under-
scores the need for
workers to incorporate
the financial risks asso-
ciated with disability
into their financial
planning mindset and
actions," Taylor says.
"The ability to earn
a living is the most im-
portant driver of finan-
cial security for the ma-
jority of people; it needs
to be valued like a re-
tirement fund, savings
account or a home."
Taylor offers the fol-
lowing tips to begin
planning for the finan-
cial impact of disabili-
ty:
Develop a plan to
improve and sustain a
healthy lifestyle. The
best way to reduce- the
financial impact of dis-
ability is to lower your
chances of becoming
disabled.
Think about the ba-
sic living expenses that
would continue if your
income stops as well as
the "added" experises as-
sociateiddewitthli ilhan s
ance deductibles, co-
pays, COBRA premiums
and care giving.

disability income pro-
grams may be available
to you. Examples might

RELAY FOR LIFE


Relay for Life is an overnight event increasing cancer
awareness while raising much-needed funds for the American
Cancer Society's local patient services and programs, advoca-
cy, community education and cancer research. Teams com-
posed of as many as 15 people from local companies, clubs,
neighborhoods and families raise funds prior to the event. At
the Relay, team members take turns walking around a track,
relay-style. Participants campout, enjoy music, entertain-
ment and food while building team spirit to help in the fight
against cancer.
This spectacular event will take place at the Madison
County ~High School football field for an overnight relay
against cancer from 6 p.m. on May 2 until noon on May 3.
Relay for Life empowers the community to take part in the
fight against cancer while honoring survivors and remember-
ing friends and loved ones lost to the disease.
The highlight of the evening, for everyone in attendance,
is the Luminaria Ceremony, held at 9:00 pm, on the 2nd.
It is one of the most beloved ceremonies during the two-
day event. The Luminaria Ceremony is conducted in order to
recognize those touched by cancer in Madison County.
Individuals, or companies, can make contributions in
memory of those who have lost the fight with cancer or memo-
rials may be purchased in honor of those who have survived.
Each will be recognized by a lighted luminaria displayed at
the Relay for Life event. The Luminarias line the track and


are left burning throughout the night to remind participants
of the incredible importance of their contributions.
Luminaria contributions/memorials can be made' by con-
tacting Christina Downer at 971-5633.
There will also be a memorial slideshow of pictures of
those who have lost their battle with cancer, and of those who
are survivors of cancer. Citizens may turn pictures in to Mar--
sha Webb at Madison County Community Bank. Pictures that
were in previous year's slideshow will be included this year
also, and do not need to be re-submitted.
The annual Relay for Life opens as cancer survivors (any-
one who has ever been diagnosed with cancer) walk or wheel-
chair the first lap. This is an emotional time and sets the
stage for the importance of each participant s contribution.
There is no cost to participate. Cancer survivors need to call
973-5633, to "sign up" and be recognized.
A festive atmosphere always develops around the track
area at these events. As you make new friends and spend time
with old ones, the Relay h-eats up and the camp-out begins.- An
atmosphere of camaraderie is created with team members en-
tertaining each other: eating, playing games, and, of .course,
walking for a great cause.
Go out and support the Madison County Relay for Life. All
money raised during that weekend will go to. help battle the
war on cancer.
Together, we can beat cancer.


Honoring no boundaries of age, cancer
does not car~e about timne, and it is then that
the bodY must.
One of M~adison County;'s youngest sur-
vivors is a hero in his own right. Eli Curl.
only' six months old when he was d iag-
nosed with cancel: looked cancer directly
in the eye and winked. Now. eight years lat-
er, Eli is a well-spoken, excellent example
of the face y'our fear's spirit. When the can-
cer took his left ey'e. Eli decided to look at
life through the other:
"I don't really remlembber any~ of it." Eli
say;s in a voice wise for his age. "so I was-
n't v;ery scared. I know my~ parents were
wor~ried. but they didn't give up and now
I'm better."
In remission. Eli has become an out-
standing young man. He is polite and mia-
ture. If not for his thoughtfull presence,
one miight mistake Eli for any~ other eight-
y~ear-old .in his class. It is when he an-
notunces that he: wants to become: an aero-
nautical engineer that one begins to
glimpse the depth within his youthful ex-
terior. Neither flighty~ nor pensive. Eli has
a grace not seen in many h~is age. It tells of
the soul that, at such a young11 age, was able
to face what is so often devastation and
walk awayr with fortitude.
"It was miy family." Eli tells. "who real-
ly pulled the most. They wer~e strong and
took me to all the doctors I needed to see. I
know m~y parents love me."
Not far awa.\ lives a m~atr~iarch of 96.
Rachel Smith Norfleet Reichmlann was al-

"I was getting along really well until I
hit 80-something." said Reichmann. look-

that you havre chance "
First, the battle started in her colon,
then moved to both breasts. In remission
since around 2005. Reichmann counts her-
self lucky~ that she did not hav~e to endure
chemotherapy.
"My~ belief in Jesus Christ is what

of childhood seem long and car~efree. "pret-

but then when they told me the second
time I thought, Well. the Lord pulled me
through before, so I just didn't worry s
much then."
Reichmann is busy these days, betwe
her involvement with the Madiso
Woman's Club. the Garden Club, five .
grandchildren and seven great-grandch~il~
dren. Her days are filed with friends, fam-l
ily and love.
"Doctor~s don't hold back like theyus
to," said Reichmann. "They tell you every
thing. I think its better that way. You know
what you're up against, what it can do, and
what others have done to beat it. It buid
camiarader~ie."
It is hard to think what the world
would be like without those resilient spir-
its that show how strong the human char-
acter can be. They lead the path, showing
all that within each, there is the soul that
endures, the body that wills and the mind
that leads the way. Together, they wage the
war that with hope. one day the cancer
be beat.

~;i thme mlar~athonl to remember those of yrester'day, support those that
are battling today, and to honlor those that will join in the battle to-
m.'Iorrow. Donations place 1luminar~ies along the pathway of the

eveninging to remind everyone that hope still lives and Lights the wag:
First appearing historically around the 16th century' for, guid-

.-;e shared Lumninaria Chlah: Christina Downer. "'It speaks volumes as
; to why5 everyone is there. We come together to realize this very un-
~por~tant purpose while we remember those who have come before."
Relay for' Life first used Ituninar~ies out of riecessity~ before dis-
,':r cover'ing their adaptability and additional splendor: It was at the
.I 1987 Seattle Relay for. Life that the lights, previously arranged. were
discovered to be dysfunctional. Before serious panlic could set in.
one of the members was said to have suggested using htuninar'ias.

ipi~b incor~por~ated the! Ltuinaria CeremonS: ? Thus so, another beauti-
ful tradition was bor~n and the lt~uninaria ceremonies have become
an 'I" exqulisite part of the Relay for Life events held now.
A, nyone? who wishes to purchase a huninar'ia may do so by con-.

Do you know a child who survived
leukemia? Do you have a mother, sister or
aunt whose breast cancer was found early
thanks to a mammogram? Do you have a
friend or coworker who quit smoking to de-
crease their risk of lung cancer? Each of
these individuals benefitedfrom the Amer-
ican Cancer Society's research program.
Each day scientists supported by the
American Cancer Society work to find
breakthroughs that will take us one step
closer to a cure. The American Cancer So-
ciety has long recognized that research
holds the ultimate answers to the preven-
tion, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
As the largest source of nonprofit can-
cer research funds in the United States, the
Ammerican Cancer Society devotes more
than $100 million each year to research.
Smnce 1946, the Society has invested more
than $2.5 billion in research. This invest-
ment has paid rich dividends: in 1946, only
one in four cancer patients were alive five
years after diagnosis; today almost 60 per-
cent live longer than five years.
SInvestigators and health professionals
in universities, research -instihtuts, and
hospitals throughout the country receive
grants from the American Cancer Society

The Milltown Murals are so named because they de-
pict the history of the town as it was in 1925, when its
name was changed to Lakeland, Originally the town was
called Alapaha', from the time the post office was estab-
lished in 1838 until l857,~ when it became Miltown.
About 1830 Joshua Lee dammed up a creek to form
Lee's Mil Pond, installing a water powered cotton gin
and gristmill. Wiliam Lastinger bought the Lee proper-
ty in 1848 and added a sawmill.
Lastinger sold his holdings to Henry Banks, an At-
lantan, in 1862, and since that time it has been called
Banks Lake. .
George Gress, another prominent Atlantan, had a
tremendous impact on Milltown in 1902. He established
a large lumber mill on the south edge of the town. His
son Morgan, who managed the mil, built the Log Cabin


(depicted in a mttral) for his private residence.
The new industry set off a building boom in Mill-
town, residences, stores, a hotel, a Baptist college, and
two banks. Gress sold hris property to Barney & Smith
Car Company in 1905, and the lumber mill burned to the
ground in 1918.
Lanier County was created in 1920. That same year
E.D. Rivers moved his family from Cairo to Miltown to
practice law, and was instrumental in getting the town's
name changed to Lakeland. He became Governor of
Georgia in 1937.
SDurinig his administration many roads were paved
thirotighout Georgia, the Georgia Highway Patrol was
created, and numerous new programs were introduced,
among them free school books, and the Department of
Public Welfare.
