As- Clerk of the Circuit Court,
Sander~s serves as the clerk ~of both the
Circuit and County Courts, helping peo-
ple gain access to the courts while
maintaining the courts' records and
collecting and disbursing court fines
and fees. In addition, the Constitution

Custodian of all county' funds. As the
~Chief Financial Officer for the county
Sanders is responsible for the safekeep-

NFCCPresident Res onds To Story About Colle e Athleticsme


It's Al: In T1 At ltde
You know, life is full of love, joy, and happiness. But
life is also full of misfortunes, hardships and unhappi-
ness.
There's the saying "Life is made up of 10% of what
happens to us and the 'other 90% is how we react to it."
Sometimes it's really hard to keep~ that thought in mind,
Sand even harder to learn ~to live life that way. This is
something that I have really begun trying to apply to my
everyday life. It is truly amazing, but so true, the way a
situation affects you is HOW you ALLOW it to effect you.
SIt is all in the attitude.
Everyone has the tendency to be negative. We spend
more time thinking about what is wrong in our lives,
than we do thinking about the good things in our lives.
It's true.... think about it. At the end of the day when
sharing your daily happenings withl someone, or even
just recounting them in your own mind, the tendency is
there to re-hash the bad points and unhappiness, than to
share all the good~things and the many blessings that
were presented to you during the day;
We go to bed saying prayers like "Lord, please change
him/her/thent." "Lord, please help me make it through
another day.": Instead, shouldn't we be giving thanks for
all the good things? We should be saying, "Lord, thank
you for allowing me to wake up and be alive for, another
day" "'Lord, thank you for blessing me with my chil-
drell/famiily" "Lord, thank you for providing me with a
house and food at the end of the day."
: We have to 16arn ~to be positive ON PURPOSE. This
. is what I am learning to strive for each and every day
We CHOOSE what we think on!. Do we CHOOSE to think
o6n the good things, or do we CHOOSE to think on/about
t~he bad things? Life deals us both hands it is up to each
'one of' us to decide which hand we want to play
SWe. each get to decide if we want to be "an adder" or
"a subtractor." Do wve want to add" to our r~elationships..
ol: do we want to "sutbtract ?take away''fromDggralatia?~tin-
ships?
SIt is all in our attitudes. It is our attitude on life and
how we perceive it. 'Stinking Thinking Yields A Stinking
Lifea' "
"Life is made up ~of 10% of what happens~to cis and
the other 90% is how we react to it."
Think about it and then begin to livre it!!!
Until then..... I'll see you around the town;

and Allied Health and in all vocational programs. I am
not wiling to cut those programs because they are our
core mission which has been established by the NFCC
Board of Trustees, each of whom was appointed by the
Governor of Florida. Intercollegiate athletics are not in
our mission. I am not arguing that intercollegiate ath-
letics are unimportant, they are very important! But in
a! climate of severely declining resources, something
has to give. In our case, the priority goes to protecting
our academic programs. With regard to the impact this
has on NFCC athletes, we wnl continue to honor schol-
arship commitments to athletes who remain academi-
cally eligible if they choose to continue their education
here at NFCC.
I hope this explanation helps in understanding why
we are suspending athletics. Understanding yes, but I
know it does not ease the pain and I feel great pain in
this action.

Sincerely, ,
Morris G. Steen, Jr
President

forts. The drug bans failed; and ~most people would not
consider banning the other potentials for abuse, de-
spite being concerned. Wh~y fixate on a barrier against
alcohol products except beer? .
The goal for all who want Madison Countyr to stay
dry should be putting onto the ballot a 'no-alcohol
sales' referendum item. If a majority wil vote to ban
sales of beer or any other alcoholic drink, the county
may! honestly style itself 'dry.' Otherwise, the objec-
tichs to, wine and liquor sales do~not have a logical ba-
sis.' Calling ourselves 'dry' is self-deception. :We aire
half wet' is the fact. .
Another perspective. Beer sales are controlled by jr:
law, its use by individuals. Other. alcohol product .sales
and use require equal control.
Marianne' Green


Dear Editor,
I appreciate e~veryonife's concern regarding the' sus-
pension of intercollegiate athletics here at North Flori-
daCommunity Collegle. This action was necessary as a
result of budget cuts, levied by the Florida legislature
caused by a severe shortfall in State revenue. For NFCC,
we are facing a $590,000 reduction in our budget as we
enter the 2008-09 school year. All State agencies are fac-
ing significant reductions to their budgets. .
No one, and I:mean no one, hates this action more
than I do. I have a longer association with NFCC athlet-
ics than anyone afmiiated with the College because I
was on the very first NFJC intercollegiate athletic
teams, men's basketball in the fall of 1960 and the men's
track team in 1961.r3 regret that this task falls on my
shoulders. because if; I could delay it for a year I would.
But my task is to prepare a budget as required by State
statute to ensure fisba~l sustainability. It falls directly on
my shoulders. I can't pass it to someone else.
To save interdollegiate athletics for the 2008-09
school year, I would have to make deep cuts in our acad-
emic programs i.e.:English & Humanities, Math & Sci-
ence, History and Social Sciences, Registered Nursing

Letters jindicate some citizens believe sale of alco-

4/23/08) Abusers cause harm, all wilagree. But, why
.is there no concern about unlimited sales of beer and
sweet alcoholic drinks, yet fierce objections to selling
wine, whiskey, liqueurs or other products listing higher
alcohol content? Is there expectation that such sales
would have drunks lying about in public places? Addicts
are not now sleeptug i~n the par~k nor on sidewalks;
and their crack cocaine viil1remain cheaper than wine
or products with higher alcohol content. People here
are considerat~es refraining fr~om being a public nui-

Is Lee Getting Its Own 'I Station?
The Town of Lee wil soon have its own TV station,
broadcasting worldwide via the Internet. Details on the
launch are being kept mum right now but I do know that
the website will feature videos from local churches and
videos of Lee people. Stay tuned for more information.
Perhaps the people of Lee wil benefit by being able to
broadcast their churches since Klip Cable has left town
and left Lee without a local TV station (Channfel 5 on the
cable).
Congratulations to Tiffany Register who wil be get-
ting married to Matt Hart on Saturday, May 3, at Lee
United Methodist Church in Lee.
The Lee Day committee is stil looking for helping
hands to chair several committees for next year's event.
For more information, please call (850) 971-5867. By the
way, Tammy Webb will be the big chair for next year's

me the capital gains
$Y~aC~rate and health
of the economy
are interdepen-
dent. In the
April 16th Penn-
sylvania debate,r
Obama did not
S ac kno wle ge
that lower capi-
tal gains would
create addition-
al revenue and argued that "fairness"
was a more important factor for lawmak-
ers to consider than the amount of rev-
enue collected. In fact, he suggested that
the economists were taking the wrong
lessons from -history That is a scary
proposition!
SMore money in the hands of the peo-
ple stimulate's the economy, right? That's
why Congress rushed through the eco-
nomnic stimulus, package when they re-
turned to Wash~ington after, Christmas.
Soon, a few hundred milion~ taxpayers
wil be receiving their $600 checks in the
mail from the Treasury spending it on
MP3s, HDTVs, $3.50 plus gasoline, etc.
But capital gains are a little different.
When the hundred milion or so taxpay-
ers who own capital assets (stocks, mutu-
al funds, 401k accountants, homes, forest
lands, etc.).sell an asset and report a cap-
ital gain, they ~taket their profits and ei-
their buy a big ticket item (car, new~ home)
or reinvest the ~profits ~in a capital asset
that wil generate' a greater return. What
kind of capital assets will they invest ini?
- new equipment, technology, additional
productivity, etc.
Let me give you' an example that is
close to home, Right now, private forest
landowners are selling mature timber be-
cause the capital gains rate is historical-
ly low and they expect that the Democ.
rats will raise the rate at which capital is
taxed. With the, profits that have been
generated by wood growth over 20-25
years, forest landowners are paying the
15 percent capital gains rate to the IRS,
saving 10-12 percent to sew the next crop,
and looking for the best place to reinvest
the remaining three-quarters of their
profits from the timber sale. Maybe
they'll replace their old pickup, or re-
model their house, or put the cash in
their Roth IRA account. Anyway you cut
it, the economy is getting a jump start.
Contrary to what Senator Obama
claims, when the government takes a big.
ger slice of the profits, economic activity
wil slow down. By that I mean that in-
vestors will not sell their capital assets if
they can afford to wait. When the tax
rate on capital gains doubled in 1987, my
Father stopped cutting timber. It should-,
n't surprise you to know that I favor low.
er capital gains tax rates to spur econom-
ic activity sales of capital assets and
reinvestment in better, more productive
investments.


Capital is
money invested
mn economic sys- Nationard
teems Capital
gains occur when Security
that invested cap-
ita~l appreciates JOe BOyle5
and sels for Guest Columnist
more than the
original cost. At
that point, the tax
man steps in and
announces that hie wants a share of those
profits. We call that a tax on capital
gains.
Currently, the tax on long term (as-
sets held for more than one year) capital
gains is 15 percent (10 percent for lower
income groups). These are historically
low figures. From 1987 to 1997, long term
capital gains were taxed at 28 percent, al-
most double today's rate. In 1997, the Re-
pu~blicans in Congress lowered the rate
from 28 to 20 percent and President Clin- .
ton signed the bil to make it law. This
rate cut was partially responsible for the
robust economic growth our country en-
joyed before the 2000-01 recession. The
Bush Administration introduced today's I
low rate with their 2001 and 2003 tax cuts.
SSo why ~does the economy improve
when capital gains taxes are lowered? In-
vestors are more likely to sell their assets
wGhen the tax rate is low because the gov-
ernment is taking 1pss of the profit.
They wmii take some of those profits and
reinvest them~ in capital assets which
earn a better rate of return. BecauS'e the
economy is dynamic ~and constantly
changing, investors frequently make al-
terations to their investment strategy
Historically 'revenues to the United
States. Treasury actually increase when
taxes are lowered and the tax rate o'n cap-
ital gains is a major contributor. It really .
is counter-intuitive. `You would normally
expect that revenues would decrease
with a reduction in the tax rate, but be-
cause economic activity is stimulated by
lowering the tax burden, revenues not
only offset the tax rate decrease but in-
crease beyond what was collected before.
It has happened repeatedly in the ear-
ly 1980s, in the late 1990s, and after the
2003 tax cut
SBoth of the Democi'at candidates for
president want to increase the rate ~at
which capital gains are taxed. Hillary
Clinton says that she would not raise the
tax above the 20 percent. rate that her
husband agreed to in 1997. Barack Oba-
ma says that he doesn't want to see the
rate increase to more than 28 percent and
SUCh an increase would not distort the
eCO110mic deciSions made by investors.
Both of the candidates hedge their bets
by saying that their actions would be de-
pendent on the state of the economy
which at the present time is sputtering, if
not worse.
Clinton shows some recognition that

for sure how old he was
since his birth records
were long ago lost in bu-
reaucratic red tape. He
wil be remembered \as
having cultivated such
valuable lessons as know-
ing when to come in out of
the rain, wfhy the early
bird gets the worm, life is-
n't always fair and maybe
it was my fault.
Common Sense lived
by simple, sound financial
policies (don't spend more
than you earn) and reli-
able parenting strategies
(adults, not children are in
charge).
His health began to de-
teriorate rapidly when
well intentioned but over-
bearing regulations were
set in place. Reports of a
six-year-old boy charged
with sexual harassment
for kissing a classmate;
teens suspended from
school for using mouth-
wash after lunch; and a
teacher fired for repri-
manding an unruly stu-
dent, only worsened his
condition.
Common Sense lost
ground when parents at-
tacked teachers for doing


the job they themselves
failed to do in disciplining
their unruly children. It
declined even further
when schools were re-
quired to get parental con-
sent to administer As-
pirin, sun lotion or a Band-
Aid to a student, but could
not inform the parents
when .a student became
pregnant` and wanted to
have an abortion.
Common Sense lost
the will' to live ~as the Ten
Commandments became
contraband; churches be-
came businesses; and
criminals received better
treatment than their vic'
tims. Common Sense took
a beating when you could-
n't defend yourself from a
burglar in your own home
and the burglar can sue
you for assault.
Common Sense finally
gave up the will to live, af-
ter a woman failed to real-
ize that a steaming cup of
coffee was hot. She spilled
a little in her lap, and was
promptly awarded a huge
settlement.
SCommon Sense .was
preceded in death by his
parents, Truth and Trust;
his wife, Discretion; his
daughter, Responsibility;
and his son, Reason. He is
survived by three step-
brothers; I Know my
Rights, Someone Else is to
Blame, and I'm a Victim.
Not many attended his
funeral because so few re-
alized he was gone. If you
still remember him, pass
this on. If not, join the ma-
jority and do nothing.

LOCAL & REGIONAL CRIME BLOTTER


ALL SUPCSS OU BE CONSIDERED ININOCENT
UNTIL PROVEN GUIT -FIN A COURT OF LAW



aO ICe SRH1 PFM *e

A man was arrested on Wednesday, April 23, and
charged with petit theft of gasoline and fleeing, or at-
tempting to elude.
According to a report filed by Officer Tiffany Travis,
on this date, .John W. Williams failed to pay for gas,
which he had pumped into a black four-door Nissan. The
Nissan had been reported stolen a day earlier from Mon-
ticello. After locating vehicle on Orange Street, Travis
provided the dispatcher with the vehicle tag informa-
tion.
Travis observed the driver operating the vehicle in a
reckless manner, driving at speeds in excess of 50 miles
per hour and failing to stop at stop signs.
At this time, Travis activated her overhead lights in
an attempt to stop the vehicle, which entered on Base
Street.
Travis observed the vehicle swerve in and out of
traffic and go around at least two .school buses, loaded
with students.
Williams crashed the vehicle on the off shoulder of
West Base, just north of the Central School.
Wiliams did not have a valid driver's license and
was carrying a state identification card only

On The U.S. Supreme Court's

Ruling On Lethal Injection
~ Based on decision, Florida's Schwabi
case may now move forward ~

Attorney Gene~ral Bil McCollum issued the follow-
ing.statement on the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on
lethal injection:
"I am pleased that through this ruling by the United
States Supreme Court, the family of Junny Rios-Mar-
tinez finally has the opportunity to see justice served. I
am equally gratified to see our belief that the proce-
dures used to carry out lethal injection in Florida are
constitutionally sound has been upheld by the highest
legal authority in the nation, based on today's ruling on
the Kentucky case, which mirrors Flolrida's lethal injec-
tiOn procedures."

line at: http:// www. scotusblo g.com/wp/ wp-con-

InveStImONitS (And Expertise) Can
$fake Grat $10ther'd Day GiftS
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Mother's Day arrives this Sunday. You could, of
course,. give Mom somne flowers, and she'd probably
appreciate them: But if your mother is a certain age, you
might -also want to make another type of gift a gift that
can help her enjoy the retirement lifestyle she's envi-
sioned. n ~lT.., I
If you don't think your rftother needs this type of gift,
consider this: With advances in health care, today's
retirees can easily live two or even three decades in
retiremerit. Furthermore, women still outlive men, on-
average, by several years. In other words, your another
will likely have to pjay for decades of retirement an~d dur-
ing some of those years, she may be solely responsible
for making financial decisions.
That's why you may want to provide as much invest-
inent-related help to your mother as -you can. Aqnd there's
no time like Mother's Day to get started.
So, what sort of gifts should you think about? Here
are a few possibilities.
Help fund Mom's IRA. If your mother is still working; she
can contribute to an IRA and she should. Ai traditional
IRA offers the potential for tax-deferred earnings, while a
Roth IRA has the potential' to grow tax ~free, provided your
mother doesn't take any withdrawavls ubtil she~ is at least
59-172 and she'S had her account for at: least five~years..
In 2008, your mother can put in up to $6,000 to an IRA if
she's 50 or older, or $5,000 if she's under 50. While you
car't actually make a deposit into your mother's IRA, you
.can give hersome money for that purpose.
Give stocks. Consider giving shares of a company that
produces products -or services used by your brother. If
you're going to give aw~ay some of your own shares, you'll
need to know vWhat you originally paid for the stock, ~how
long you've held it and its fair market value at the date of
the gift. Your mother will need this information to deter-
niine gains or losses if she' decides to sell the stock.
(You'll also need to determine if you h7ave to pay gift taxes.
You can give up to $12,000 per year, free of gift taxes, to
as many people as you want.) '
Pay off a debt. If you can afford it, tell your mother: you'd
like to pay off her credit card balance, a month's car pay-
ment or another type of loan. Bilt don't stop there -
encourage her to invest the money that she'll be savings
due to your generosity. Even if it's just a relatively small
amount, every little bit helps. And who knows? Your gift
.could encourage your mother to take further steps to
reduce debt ~and invest.more.
IMake an appointment with a financial advisor. If your
mother doesn't already work with a professional financial
advisor, make an appointment for her to see one, prefer-
Sably one that comes with good referrals. A reputable
financial advisor won't charge anything for an initial con-
sultation, and, over time, he or she can help your mother
create investment strategies that are appropriate for her
goals, needs, risk tolerance and time horizon.
By following one or ~more of these gift suggestions, you'll
brighten the holiday for your owh mother. And your gift will
still have an impact long after Mother's Day is over.

question: I want to protect my son's teeth from a
Sports injury with a mouth guard. Are stdre bought
athletic mouthguards any good?

Answer: As a matter of fact, store brought athletic
mouthguards are not only good, they are a fantastic
idea! In some 200,000 annual cases of sport~s-related
dental injuries, mouthguards have been known to avert
oral injuries and cut the risk: of concussion by 50
percent. ~, study .pubslhpigi2,n, the Journal of Sports
Dl~entist~?~~~crlde clue thatr store bought mouthguards
can, be as effective as dentist' fabricated mouthguards.
The investigators were surprised to discover the
thickness of the mouthiguard as most important factor
for protecting teeth and not the cost. The' "boil and
bite"' mouthgulards worked well if they were thick
enough. The thickness cushions' the 'teeth and reduces
injury. Thin mouthguards were far less effective.
Mouthguards were found ineffective if they had not
been~properly fitted. Make: sure to follow the package
directions to soften and fit the mouthguard before use.

The April 14 meeting
of the Madison County Al-
cohol and Other Drug Pre-
vention Coalition
(MCAODPC) included in-
troductions to local and
state office seekers, as well
as a state coordinator from
the United States Depart-
ment of Health and Hu-
man Services, whose
Florida efforts with the
Substance Abuse and
Mental Health Services
Administration (SAMH-
SA) align very favorably
with the coalition. The
MCAODPC was formed in
October 2002 with the spe-
cific focus of promoting
an alcohol and drug free
environment throughout
the county
Starting with several
candidates for Sheriff, the


microphone circled
through the candidates
who were assembled in the
sanctuary of Mt. Zion
A.M.E. Church where the
MCAODPC meets month-
ly. Along the way however,
the focus diverted momen-
tarily from political intro-
ductions to Senta Goudy,
Coordinator for the Flori-
da SAMHSA program.
Goudy discussed the
focal points and resources
associated with her group
including its emphasis on
Outcome Based Preven-
tion. This approach cen-
ters on reducing overall
use and related problems
and because it is data
guided as well, the likeli-
hood of targeting signifi-
cant problems increases.
The approach also identi-
fies and targets key risk
and protective factors con-

Taking an instant lik-

"Baby's heads have no-
hair; old men's heads, are
just as bare. Between the
cradle and the grave, lies a
haircut and a shave. "
Unknown
A true old time bar-
ber's shop has been recre-
ated here in Madison by a
fourth generation barber,
Ronnie Cox, with some
special help .supplied .by
Boys Ranch young men
and their new found love of
an old time trade.
An ancient trade, the
barber of yesterday played
many roles for the town in
which he set his shop.
From hairdresser and
hairstylist, to dentist, sur-
geon, and blood-letter, the
Barber, or tonsor became a
part of daily routine. A
trip to his shop was as im-
portant as that of one to
the bathhouse. Providing
an opportunity for social
contact, a young man's
first shave' was an essen-
tial element in his coming
of age ceremony
Though today's barber
may not, stil, be held in
such high esteem.,it :is -
th~rou ~h no fault of his
own. Times have changed,
.not the barber. The intro-
duction of the disposable
razor, for instance has de-
pleted the need for a pro-
fessional shave so thor-
oughly that it is now a rar-
ity to hear "add a hot lath-
er." Yet, the esteemed bar-
berrmis tucked wit
ingfora ptron to not ce
his briliant barber pole
and step inside, uttering
the -phrase that warms a
barber's heart faster than
a hot towel and a bright
light; "Can I get a shave
and trimm"
Ronlnie Cox learned
his trade from his grandfa-
ther. He! works' in Live Oak


Sat mne via ltyme narDer
Shop, while he sets up his
own old time barber shop
on his property here in
Madison. He can be found
sharing his trade passed
down over the years, and
chattering away, as any
good barber should, with
the customers that flow
through, in need of his ex-
pertise.
Offering up humorous
stories and great advice to
the patrons whom ~he
serves, Cox ran into some .
cottage parents from the

If you have lived in Mladison for any' period of timne andi are ilo wvorkilig out, it i~s
highly likely that you have crossed paths with the workout guru Cathy Rogers. Cath3
who leads free workout classes in town, convinced some of her prot~gi~s into running in
the. 15K (9.3 mile) road race in Jacksonvile known as the River Run. After many. months
of training and encouragement, Cathy led her team of Harriet Brewer, Carmen
Vasquez, Maria Castro, and her sister, Kim, in the 31st Annual Gate River Run on Sat-
urday March 8, 2008.
This was a first for many of the runners to run in a race of this distance. Everyone
finished with a personal best time and completed the course despite 'the intimidating
Hart Bridge, which is located during the last mile of the race.
Facing 45 mile an hour wind gusts at times, the ladies pushed through the obstacles.
to complete the journey for which they trained. Despite the brisk weather, the elation of
completing such a task could not be suppressed. Setting a goal of such magnitude
seemed daunting at first, but with a consistent commitment to traiin, the women reached
a level of health and conditioning they were not previously certain they coxild obtain.
As the ladies successfully accomplished this goal, they are setting their sights on a
half-marathon located in Boston, which will ~takie place in October. They can be seen tak-
ing advantage of the new "Rails to Trails" trail grinding out the miles.
Anyone interested in running or health conditioning can contact Cathy for person-
al one-on-one training.

1. Budgets are a necessary evil.
They're the only practical way to get a grip on
your spending -- and to make sure your money is be-
ing used th~e.way you want it to be used.

2. Creating a budget generally requires
three steps.
Identifywhow you're spending money now
Evaluate your current spending and set goals
that take into account your long-ter'm financial ob-
jectives
S- Track your spending to make sure it stays with-
in those guidelines.

3. Use software to save grief.
If you-use a personal-finance program suCh as
Quicken or Microsoft Money, the built-in budget-
making tools can create your budget for you.

4. Don't drive yourself nuts.
One drawback of monitoring your spending by
computer is that it encourages over2:ealous atten-
tion to detail. Once you determine which categories
of spending can and should be cut (or expanded),
concentrate on those categories and worry less
about other aspects of your spending.

5. Watch out for' cash leakage.
If withdrawals from ~the ATM machine etrapo-
rate from your pocket without apparent explana-
tion, it's time to keep better records. In general, i

But~if you do,yoru've~got plentyiof company.Gov-
ernment figures show that many households withi
total income ~of $50,9000 or less are spending more
than they bring in. This doesn't make you an auto-
matic candidate for bankruptcy -- but it's definitely a
sign you need to make some serious spending cuts..

7. Beware of luxuries dressed up as necessi-

***f your income doesn't cover your costs, then,
some of your spending is probably for h~ixuries '-
even if you've been considering them to be filling `a
real need.

8. ~Tithie yourself. .1
Aim to spend no more than 90 percent of your in-
come. That way, you'll have the other 10 percent left
to save fbr your big-picture items.

9. Don't count on wiindfalls.
When projecting the amount of money you can
live on, don't include dollars that you can't be sure
you'll receive, such as year-end bonuses, tax refunds,
or investment gains.

10. Beware of spelriding creep.
As your annual income climbs from raises, pro-
motions,,and, smart investing, don't start sIending
for luxuries until you're sure that you're staying
ahead of inflation. It's better to rise~ those income in-
creases as an excuse to save more.

the groundbreaking of the

Madison Senior Center. In
the interim, Richardson is
not resting on her laurels
however, always looking
for additional resources to
enhance the services her
organization currently of-

local and college volun-

University (FSU), she has
added another very useful
resource to the portfolio, a
computer lab.
According to volun-

who serves as Webmaster
for the FSU College of In-
formation, Jim Freeman
of Lutheran Social Ser-
vices (LSS) asked her to re-
furbish and organize a
computer lab at the Madi-

the help of volunteer stu-

Raulston made the project
a priority
The first task was to
assess the lab, which was a
hodge-podge of mis-
matched computers and
operating systems. After
assessing the need, Geet
contacted LSS requesting

The Madison County Health Disparities Task Force
meets monthly as part of an ongoing effort to improve
health throughout the county with special emphasis on
the near epidemic level of disparities that exist in the
minority communities. Faith-based leaders Sim
Alexander and Robert Holmes staunchly endorsed
Barnhill's message.

By Michael Curtis
Greene Pucblishing, Inc. -
During the April 15 meeting of the Health Dispari-
ties Task Force, Kim Barnhill, Department of Health
(DOH) Administrator for Jefferson and Madison Coun-
ties, outlined several key achievements and several
more goals targeted for the current period. Among
these goals is an effort by the department to build social
capital in ~the community. ~.
Generally speaking, social capital refers to the so-
cial network or "connection" someone has to groups
within the community or the community as a whole.
Astoundingly, but not necessarily surprisingly, a signif-
icant correlation has been observed between areas of
low social capital and high health problems.
Regardless of the science and definitions, Bar'nhill
clearly stated her intention to support the growth of so-
cial capital throughout Madison County.
"It can be as simple as putting in a park bench or
cleaning up a neighborhood," she noted. There are al-
ready plans to promote the latter in a nearby neighibor-
hood in the near future.
Additional business included a' reminder to attend
the "State of the Child" presentation scheduled for
Wednesday, April 30' at 9:30 a.m. at the Madison Public
Library located at the entrance to NFCC. Healthy Start
Executive Director George Hinchliffe wil be hosting the
event that includes a powerful PowerPoint presentation.
The meeting also included a brief outline of the
strides that have been made to build a quality dental
clinic in the health department, which has now expand-
ed to three fully equipped stations in only six years
since Barnhill took the lead.

help change that direction with this cre-
ative and vital program.
Physical activity can reduce the risk
of chronic diseases like diabetes and
heart problems and regular physical ac-
tivity can improve health and reduce
the risk of premature death in the fol-
lowing ways:
1. Reduces the risk of developing
coronary heart disease (CHD) and the
risk of dying from CHD
2. Reduces the risk of stroke
3. Reduces the risk of having a sec-
ond heart attack in people who have al-
ready had one heart attack
4. Lowers both total blood choles-


terol and triglycerides and increases
high-density lipoproteins (HDL) or the
"good" cholesterol
5. Lowers the risk of developing
high blood pressure
6. Helps reduce blood pressure in
people who already have hypertension
7. Lowers the risk of developing
non-insulin-dependent (type 2) diabetes
mellitus
8. Reduces the risk of developing
colon cancer
9. Helps people achieve and main-
tain a healthy body weight
10. Reduces feelings of depression
and anxiety


11. Promotes psychological well-be-
ing and reduces feelings of stress
12. Helps build and maintain
healthy bones, muscles, and joints
13. Helps older adults become
stronger and better able to move about
without falling or becoming excessively
fatigued
The Madison County DOH urges all
residents to take part in these and other
healthy programs to be introduced
throughout the summer. Please~ call 973-

Go With Your
Own Glow

In addition to the obvi-
ous health risks associat-
ed with tanning beds, tan-
ning as a lifestyle Is over.
Fashion and beauty. insid-
ers agree that today, it's all
about natural beauty
"Tanning as a life pri-
ority is over," sa-ys Lois
Joy Johnson, fashion and
beauty director, MORE
magazine.. "We all need to -
pay attention to being
healthy and having
healthy; skin, not~ chairing
our skin to another color."'
The Skin Cancer Foun-


dation is launching its
first nationwide public
awareness, "Gd With Your
Own Glow,": to 'empower
people to be comfortable
in their own skin and en-
courage luminous, radiant
skin as the new beauty
and fashion ideal.
"The goal Is to change


the way people think
about tanning," says Dr.
Perry Robins, president of

The "Base Tan" Myth

STh'e assumption that a
tan offers protection
against sunburry is false. A
..tan generated' by ultrav~io-
: ;let light offers, at best, a
very low level of protec-
tion against sunburn. You


higher risk of developing
Thelanoma. More alarm-
ing still, based on 7 world-
wide studies, people who
first use a tanning bed be-
fore age 35 increase their
risk for melanoma by 75
percent.
"This new research
substantiates what we've
believed for years about
the. danger of indoor tan-
ning," said Perry Robins,
M~\D. Presidlent of The Skin
Cancer Foundation. .'It
clearly increases the risk
of skin cancer, especially
in young women, who are
the largest group of
Ises.addition, this study
found that the risk of
squamous cell carcinoma
~(SCC) is significantly in-
creased in teens after their
first use of .tanning beds.
SCC is the second most
common form of skin can-
cer and accounts for ~2,500
deaths a year. Of the three
major skin cancers, it is
the one that has most
clearly been linked to exi-
mulative lifetime u~ltravio-
let exposure. In fact, a 2002
study from Journal of the
National Cancer .Institute
found that people who use
tanning beds are 2.5 times
more likely to develop. SCC
than those who don't use
tanning beds.
If the threat of
melanoma isn't enough to
scare teens away from tan-
ning booths, they should
know, that 90% of visible
skin changes commonly
attributed to aging are re-
ally caused by exposure to
ultraviolet radiation. Ul-
traviolet radiation (UV)
accelerates the signs of ag-
ing, including wrinkles,
leathering and fine lines,
which can be seen as early
as in one's 20's. Yet many
young viomen continue to
contribute to the $5 billion
dollar tanning industry.
The Vitamin D
Dilemma Promoters of
sunbeds tout the benefits
of tanning as a source for
Vitamin D. While it is
widely known that Vita-
min D can have many
health benefits, it is also
known that UV radiation
is a human carcinogen
and does cause skin can-
cer.
Vitamin D can easily
be obtained from oily fish
(salmon, mackerel, sar-
dines) and cod liver oil as
well as from fortified or-
ange juice and milk (both

Retirement closes one aspect of life, but offers a new adventure for the nexrt
phase. For Ann Paquette, of Greenville, this new adventure began February 28 when
she retired from Greenvile Elementary School after 16 years of service as a parapro-
fessional to the students of Madison County.
SThe day began with a surprise hot buffet breakfast furnished by the faculty and
staff of Greenville Elementary School. When Paquette entered the faculty lounge, she
was surprised and teary-eyed when she saw the lovely tables decorated with green
cloths, spring tulips, a rocking bench with a huge pink bow and last, but not least, her
husband, Art, was in on the surprise. As the group enjoyed breakfast, fellowshipped
and traveled down memory lane, Melvin Roberts, principal of Greenville Elementary
School, presented Mrs. Ann with a beautiful plaque for her years of service.
George Pridgeon, fornier principal who hired Mrs. Ann 16 years ago, was also
there for the festivities. Later in the afternoon, several of the classes that Mrs. Ann
works with surprised her' with cupcakes and ice cream.
Mrs. Ann may have retired from work, but not from life, and we are sure she wil
be spending a lot of time with her babieses" her miniat~ure horses that she enjoys so
much.

Greene has owned and operated family businesses
throughout Madison for 50 years, but is perhaps best
known for bringing large businesses to Madison includ-
ing Dixie Packers.
S"Emerald (Kinsley, Greene's daughter and local pub-
lisher), has an employee with incredible media skills
who wil be making a DVD to promote M~adison. The
quality will be the very best anywhere. Our objective is
to make the City of Madison a small town business mec-
ca,but we have to make it attractive for new business."
Greene added,
Business owners George Pouliotte and wife Betty
agree. "The money you save on fees is money that is
spent locally; It goes right back in to the area."
Love's Truck Stop paid $10,200 to the City of Madison for
imnpact fees for handling: their wastewater, whiich- City
Manager Harold Emrich stated they paid without com-
ment, also noting however that Love's is a huge national
business chain.
To reinforce the issue, Commissioner Jim Catron pro-
vided reference from an online article that stated, "The
reason impact fees were implemented.wa's to protect.cur-
rent residents from having to pay: foi. infrastructure that
new building projects will bring."
Most in the room thought, including local realtor
Lynette Sirmon, did not see the explanation of impact fees
as conclusive, nor Love's, as the g~ample to follow, chal-
lenging that the internal growth the community is seek-
ing, versus commerce at the interstate ~interchanges,~ re-
quires maximum use of incentives, including the elimina-
to" he Cty of Madison does not have a large enough
population yet to be putting on any fees that could be a de-
terrent to growth. It should be all about growth first, cre-
ating jobs and putting revenue and taxes back into the
community then the fees can be revisited. We shouldn't do
anything that might slow growth now," Sirmon explained.
Mayor Myra Valentine stated her appreciation for all
comments, stating that discussions should continue and
Emrich invited anyone wishing to see the' numbers and
discuss budget options could contact him as well.
Those wanting to voice an opinion, or to obtain additional
information, may call the City of Madison at (850) 973-
5081.
