on the family farm. On their more than
1,100 acres they have a small cow-calf
operation and grow peanuts, iron clay
peas, bahia grass seed, and hay. But
they are best known for the premium"
watermelons they ship from their own
packinghouse and sell throughout the

This Past Week Has Seen the Passing June 30th Remembered As The


of Two Fine American Gentlemen -
Tim Russert And Buddy Phillips


Buddy Phillips


As The Husband and I listened to the television
news coverage this past week of the death of Tim
Russert, it saddened us to know that we had lost anoth-
er great news colleague, and this one was known as one
of the nation's top interviewers.
Russert was without a doubt one of the best inter-
viewers I have ever seen on television. He had immense
knowledge, had meticulous preparations, and was also
tough on both liberal and conservatives, Democrats and
Republicans.
While a fe-w people on each side of the spectrum
criticized him, he played tough and fair with all guests.
This is what helped him please his viewers.
What also was distinctive about Russert was his
blue-collar, Buffalo background, which he took im-
mense pride in. The NBC broadcaster was not known so
much for detailed and profound analyses of the nation's
political fortunes as he was for this poignant and mem-
orable book about his father, "Big Russ And Me."
Russert was a devout Catholic, and a religious man
in a secular profession. He was also a shameless Buffa-
lo Bills devotee, and an ardent fan of other sports teams.
"He Died "I ilis Joy!"
,,To me;phe had some of the best journalistic and
broadcasting skills in the profession. He remade "Meet
the Press" into the highest rated Sunday news program.
It may have been commentator and speechwriter Peggy
Noonan, who had the best analysis of Russert's depart-
ment. She noted in a James Agree's book what a father
who had passed away had written on his tombstone. He
said he had died "In his joy."
When Noonan found out that Russert had passed
away while preparing for the next session of "Meet the.
Press," she knew that he, too, had died, "In his joy"
To me, that is not a bad epitaph. If you died in your
joy, then you have lived in your joy"
All humans should be so fortunate.
I think The Husband and I will do the same. Die in
our joy, doing what we like to do "almost the best." Our
first desire to do what we like, however, is being with
our family children and grandchildren. They are our
heart, our joy, and- our first priority They are our "rea-
son for living."
The second passing this week was that of .our
friend, J. M. "Buddy" Phillips, who is best known as
"Sheriff of Florida," due to the post he held in several
counties. Phillips died Tuesday, June 10, after a battle
with cancer.
Phillips was elected sheriff of Suwannee County in
1968, at age 29. He and The Husband were good friends.
Both were the same age, and both were aggressive
"home-county" builders during the same period of
their lives. They worked together on many projects to
make a "better" North Florida.
Phillips joined the Florida ,Department of Law En-
forcement in 1973 as a special agent/training specialist.
One of his duties was to fill in when a sheriff had been
removed from office for wrongdoing, or for other rea-
sons. During his tenure with FDLE, he was appointed
interim sheriff in six counties Columbia, Flagler,
Glades, Lake and Pasco giving him the state record in
that regard.
Buddy Phillips was an excellent high school football
player. His friend, and ours, Tommy Kennon, a former
Circuit Judge in North Florida, remembers Buddy as a
"super guy."
Kennon said of Phillips, "We have known each oth-
er since I was six years old. He was an excellent high
school football player." Phillips played center, while
Kennon played guard.
Phillips earned a football scholarship to the Univer-
sity of Florida, but later transferred to South Georgia
Junior College to play ball under Bobby Bowden.
This was at the same time The Husband also was at
South Georgia Junior College, and he also played foot-
ball under Coach Bowden.
Kennon was a fraternity brother of my twin, Wiley,
at the U of 7, and later became a county and circuit
judge for 32 years.
Yes, we've lost two fine men this week, with the
passing of Russert and Phillips. It's always a blessing to
remember friends who have made "a difference" in the
hearts of men and women, and to know they will be re-
membered for the "good" they accomplished in their
lives.
I only hope we can all be remembered so kindly.
"Nuff said....Bye for now... See 'ya.


Day America Began To Hold

Government Accountable
Dear Editor:
June 30, 2008 may be remembered in history as the
day Americans began, in earnest, the moral and solemn
process of holding their (servant) Government account-
able to the Constitution -- under threat of withdrawal of
allegiance, support and tax money
To secure this end, the People have begun to claim
and exercise a little-knoWn, but unalienable, "Right of
Redress," rather than depending upon the will of the
majority as defined by precinct voters, those who cast
votes on Capitol Hill, and those that vote from the inner
sanctums of our Courthouses.
Most do not know that this profound natural Right,
first articulated 800 years ago in Magna Carta, is em-
bodied and protected by the Petition clause of the First
Amendment -- the same Amendment which protects
your voice in the defense of Freedom. Very importantly,
academic research since 1986 makes clear the Right to
Petition for Redress is NOT a redundant statement of
the Right of Speech. It is in fact, the individual exercise
'of Popular Sovereignty
To be sure, the widespread exercise of this Right
holds significant implications for our nation and are
most worthy of your interest. Here's what the Founders
sitting as the first Congress had to say:
"If money is wanted by Rulers who have in any man-
ner oppressed the People, they may retain it until their
grievances are redressed, and thus peaceably procure
relief, without trusting to despised petitions or disturb-
ing the public tranquility." Journals of the Continental
Congress, 1:105-113
On June 30, 2008, approximately 1200 American citi-
zens will begin the process of exercising the Right by
formally serving a Legal Notice and Demand for'Re-
dress upon the President, the Attorney General and
every member of the U.S. House of Representatives and
the U.S. Senate at their local, district offices.
Demanding an official response within forty (40)
days, the Notice includes seven (7) Petitions for Redress
of Grievances regarding substantial violations the Con-
stitution: .. ..
S1. The Iraq invasion in violation of the war powers
clauses.
2. The Federal Reserve System's violation of the
money clauses.
3. The USA Patriot Act's violation of the privacy
clauses.
4. The direct, un-apportioned taxes on labor in vio-
lation'of the tax clauses.
5. The federal gun control laws in violation of the
Second Amendment.
6. The failure to enforce immigration laws in viola-
tion of the "faithfully execute clause."
7. The construction, by stealth, of a "North Ameri-
can Union" without constitutional authority.
We the People cannot elect our way out of tyranny.
Any assertion that by electing either McCain or Obama
we can cure' the ills that now plague America is simply
naive or based on a lack of information regarding the
corrupting forces that truly influence and control our
government and political process.
We urge you -- the media, to learn about this pro-
found Right and to cover this event. Our Republic faces
a,watershed moinent no less historically compelling or
newsworthy than, e.g., the emergence of the Civil
Rights 'movement. If Liberty is' to survive through
peaceful means, you must embrace your obligation -
both moral and Constitutional to bring this critical in-
formation to your readers, viewers and listeners.

Order, visit:

Christian Ways To

Reduce Stress...
An Angel says, "Never borrow from the future. If you
worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn't
happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen,
you have to worry twice."
1. Pray
2. Go to bed on time.
3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.
4. Say No to projects that won't fit into your time
schedule or that will compromise your mental health.
5. Delegate tasks to capable others.
6. Simplify and unclutter your life.
7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough,
two are often too many.)
8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.
9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult
projects over time; don't lump the hard things all to-
gether.
10. Take one day at a time.
11. Separate worries from concerns. If a situation is
a concern, find out what God would have you do and let
go of the anxiety. If you can't do anything about a situa-
tion, forget it.
1 12. Live within your budget; don't use credit cards
for ordinary purchases.
13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an
extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.
14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut).
This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous
amount of, trouble.
15. Do something for the Kid in you every day.
16. Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in
line.
17. Get enough rest. .
18. Eat right. '
19 Get organized, so everything has its place.
20., Listen to a tape while driving that can help im-
prove your quality of life.
21. Write down thoughts and inspirations.
22. Every day, find time to be alone.
23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to
nip small problems in the bud. Don't waituntil it's time
to go to bed to try and pray.
24. Make friends with Godly people.
25. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand.
26. Remember that the shortest bridge between de-
spair and hope is often a good "Thank you, Jesus"
27. Laugh. \
28. Laugh some more!
29. Take your work seriously, but not yourself at all.
30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are do-
ing the best they can).
31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it
the most.)
32. Sit on your ego.
33. Talk less; listen more.
34. Slow down.
35. Remind yourself that you are not the general
manager of the universe. "
36. Every night before bed, think of one thing you're
grateful for that you've never been grateful for before.

08: Why we should drill) which proves
that we are cutting edge, but the impor-
tance of inflated energy prices is grow-
ing day-by-day, so we're gonna talk about
it again.
Let me set this up: about a century
ago, my grandfather purchased a handful
of shares in oil stock from his hometown
friend Harry Sinclair. Harry's company
was Sinclair Oil (old-timers might recall
their symbol of the green dinosaur)
which was later bought by Atlantic Rich-
field which in turn was purchased by BP
- British Petroleum. Fifty years ago, my
grandfather gave those shares of stock to
my mother who later, gave them to me.
Now this tale isn't one of those Coca-
Cola/Apply Computer rags-to-riches sto-
ry my account statement received last
week indicated that my "big oil" nest egg
is worth about $12 grand which, at the
current price of gasoline, should keep
gas in my thirsty F-250 for a few more
years. The letter from BP which accom-
panied my statement was revealing, so I
thought I'd quote a few things to you.
"The price of gasoline in the US is
primarily a function of demand for
crude oil and products relative to avail-
able supply Like other commodities,
crude oil is traded on the world mitarket
where the price is determined by the
forces of supply and demand. During the
past year, crude oil has experienced very
tight supply/demand balances, resulting
in exceptionally high crude oil prices."
"Since the price of crude.makes up
more than 70 percent of the cost of gaso-
line, as the crude oil price goes up, so
does the price of gasoline. The second
largest single factor in gasoline con-
sumer prices are taxes imposed by the
federal, state and local taxing authori-
ties. These account for approximately 13
percent of the cost of gasoline. The re-
maining costs are split between distribu-
tion and retailing; and refining the crude
into gasoline."
"BP's primary role in keeping prices
down is to continue to provide supply,
which it does through its vast marketing
and logistics channels. BP remains com-
mitted to providing a secure supply of oil
to the US. This is evidenced by our on-
going investment program and increas-
ing reserve base. Over the past five
years, BP has invested $32 billion in the
US, which is the same amount it earned
in the US over the same time period. For


the longer term, BP is in-
vesting in research on al-
ternative fuels for both
transportation and for
power. We continue to be a
leader in alternative fuels.
In the short term, conser-
vation and demand reduc-
tion will help make a dif-
ference to the price we all
pay at the pump."
So there you have a
current answer to the


problem that is
-on everyone's
Mind from one
S ".' I of the "big five"
oil companies
that dominate
S1 the US market.
Now, what
do the politi-
cians have to say
about all this?
The answer
from Republicans is pretty simple ...
probably too simple ... but nonetheless:
drill here; drill now; pay less! The an-
swer from Democrats is all over the map,
but I'll try to capture the essence.
Drilling is not the answer. Big Oil is mak-
ing obscene profits and they pay their ex-
ecutives too much (fact: oil company
profits are about 8 cents per dollar, of,
sales). We need solar-hybrid 16-wheelers
- take that Freightliner! Yada, yada,
yada.
Saying that drilling is not, the answer
to high fuel prices is like saying that eat-
ing isn't the answer, to famine. By most
polls taken in the wake of $4 per gallon
gasoline, two-thirds of the American peo-
ple believe that drilling is the answer
which puts the "party of the people" that
Democrats like to self-proclaim on the
wrong side of this issue.
Last week, we even had a powerful,
progressive (read really liberal) Democ-
rat committee chairman from upstate
New York by the name of Maurice
Hinchey suggest that the government
needed to "take over" our nation's oil re-
fineries! I bet Karl Marx was dancing in
his grave when he heard that. Now, ex-
actly how the government canr legally
take ownership of a publicly held compa-
ny in a capitalist democracy is unclear,
but to a liberal Democrat, anything is
possible. I don't know how many other
"progressive" Democrats are members of
the "Hugo Chavez wing" of the Democrat
party besides Hinchey and Maxine. Wa-
ters (D-Watts, CA), but you can bet
they're not alone.
If you believe that energy in the Unit-
ed States of America is governed by free
market principles, I hate to break the bad
news to you. When our elected represen-
tatives in Congress have blocked for 36
years oil exploration on Alaska's North
Slope, western oil shale, and nearly all of
the outer continental shelf offshore and
refused to permit any nuclear power
plants, they have severely constrained
the free market for energy ... and we have
allowed them to do this. Now that spiral-
ing fuel and energy costs are impacting
everyone in nearly every part of the
economy, we are looking to the, politi-
cians that have gotten us into this mess

LOCAL REGIONAL CRIME BLOTTER


Sim{

By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
June 1 marked the offi-
cial end of the 2008 "Click
It or Ticket" campaign.
First launched in North
Carolina, in 1993, by then
governor Jim Hunt, the
campaign is aimed at seat
belt usage, especially
among teens and young
adults. In an effort to re-
duce fatalities as a result
of being unrestrained, as
of January 2007, 37 states
now have primary safety
belt laws and participate
in the Click It or Ticket
campaign. In Florida
alone, in 2007, 618 drivers
not wearing their seat
belts were killed in traffic
accidents. Not just for La-


k It Or Ticket


bor Day anymore, statis-
tics show that Click It or
Ticket is a practice Madi-
son residents should have
year round.
According to Florida
statistics on safety belt us-
age, 23,197 drivers who
were involved in traffic ac-
cidents in 2007 were not
-wearing their seat belts.
The times-and days of
crashes varied showing
that the highest number of
accidents took place on
Friday evenings during
the 5 p.m. hour with 3,294
crashes. Crashes that had
the most fatalities took
place on Sunday, during
the 2 a.m. hour, claiming
48 lives and Saturday at
the same hour claiming 40

victims. Nationwide sta-
tistics show that there is
one traffic fatality every
12 minutes in the U.S.
Sadly, many of
those lost to traffic fatali-
ties are children, teens
and young adults. The pri-
mary audience of the
Clicl~ It or Ticket cam-
paign, therefore continues
to be young men 18 to 34,
who research has shown
are the least likely to wear
their safety belts. New
data released recently
showed that during 2006,
4,842 teen passenger vehi-
cle occupants died in traf-
fic accidents. During the
day, 57 percent of those
killed were not wearing
their seat belts at the time
of the accident. Those
numbers increased at
night where 68 percent of
those killed were without
their safety restraints.
Every year, law en-
forcement agencies na-
tionwide join forces from
coast to coast, for a blitz
that delivers the message
of Click It or Ticket. In a
survey conducted by Pub-


j~proy Frwawl



g he plk~s.


lic Opinion Strategies it
was found that 83 percent
of 800 U.S. citizens sur-
veyed had seen, read or
otherwise heard of the
Click It or Ticket cam-
paign. 81 percent of those
surveyed support the ef-
fort. After amplifying the
advertising and enforce-
ment campaign in May
2003, figures released by
the U.S. Department of
Transportation indicated
that the national seatbelt
use among the men age
group 16 to 24 rose from
65 percent to 72 percent
and the usage among
women age 16 to 24
climbed from 75 to 79 per-
cent.
According to Deputy
Whitfield of the Florida
Highway Patrol, one hun-
dred and thirteen tickets
were written locally this
Click It or Ticket cam-
paign.
Though not everyone
supports the Click It or
Ticket campaign, some
opposition believe that re-
quiring one to wear a
seatbelt against their
wishes is a violation of
their civil rights, statis-
tics showing the necessity
of wearing restraints in
an accident to reduce in-
jury and possible death
cannot be ignored. Enti-
tled to make one's own de-
cisions, it is the responsi-
bility to all drivers every-
where to ensure not only
the safety of themselves,
but any other.passengers
as well. A seatbelt is often
the only thing standing
between a vehicle's occu-
pants and the grave.

Katie Sanders


Carries Excellence


To College

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Katie Sanders was Valedictorian of the Madison
County High School Class of 2006. Now a Journal-
ism/English major at The University of Florida,
Sanders is continu-
ing her tradition of
excellence as Section
Editor for the Uni-
versity's Independent
Florida Alligator, a
full-featured publica-
tion headquartered
Son the campus in
Gainesville.
Always. the apple
of her grandmother
Frances Sanders'
eye, this reporter re-
ceived a call from
Frances praising the
exceptional nature of
one of her grand-
daughter's assign'
ments, an excerpt
from which is offered
below. While a
Katie Sanders, Valedictorian gr an d m o the r's
of the MCHS Class of 2006, is praise can some-
Section Editor of the University of times be considered
.a bit biased, this re-
Florida's publication, the Inde- a br biased, this re-
pendent Florida Alligator. porter wishes to join
Frances and the
community in con-
gratulating Katie on her accomplishments, which are,
in fact, excellent by all measures.
As Katie explained while setting up the excerpt, the
story involves her grandmother Frances Sanders, also
known as Buddy, and her usually strict father's methods
of making her dreams come true. Frances .Sanders' fa-
ther was Frederick Troupe Mickler Sr. of Madison.
'An instance of her (Frances Sanders) father's softer
side occurred on one Christmas, when all Buddy wanted
was a pony. For a family living in the city, this was a lit-
tle complicated. But Frederick couldn't bear to see his
daughter disappointed on their favorite holiday. On
Christmas morning, he told Buddy that he tied, her new
pony on a rope outside. As she ran outside to meet her new
friend, all she found was a rope hanging loosely from the
trunk of a tree. Her father said the pony had apparently
"run away." "That was just his way of handling it, "she
said. "I looked for the pony all Christmas morning."
Katie is the daughter of Ted and Kim Sanders of
Madison.

Value Far More Important Than Price


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
"How much does it
cost?" is the most common
question asked when mak-
ing buying decisions, in-
cluding financial decisions.
However, historically the
question that will lead to
decisions giving the great-
est benefit is, "Is it the best
value?"
Many recognize the dif-
ference between price and
value; otherwise con-
sumers would simply pur-
chase the lower priced
item claiming to do the
same thing. Cheaper
prices for the same brand
is one thing, that's why
Wal-Mart is booming, but
what about those products,
or more notably services,
that aren't as readily com-
pared.
The financial services
industry is a prime exam-
ple of this phenomenon.
Everything from brokers to
bankers to mortgages to
credit cards have similar
looks on the surface, but
may possess vastly differ-
ent values when one looks
under the cover. This is
why advisors, friends or
family with solid experi-
ence will always insist that
one compare "apples with
apples and oranges with
oranges." When this
process is followed, value
will begin to take the place
of price.
Value has received con-
siderable attention in all
the up-and-coming indus-
tries. A commonly used
abbreviation, VAR, comes
from this development. A
value-added reseller, or
VAR, will come to market
with a product or service
perceived to have greater
"benefit" to the consumer
than the added "cost" asso-
ciated with the extras the
reseller offers. Forin-
stance, two credit card of-
fers may have the same
terms but one gives double
frequent flyer miles. To
the traveler, it might even
be worth higher fees on the
card because the relative
value is higher once they
consider the flyer privi-
leges on the account. Of
course, the buyer must still
beware that the promotion
of value isn't just glitzy ad-


vertising.
Professional services
should also be selected
with value foremost in.
mind. During this re-
porter's time training plan-
ning professionals and fi-
nancial marketers, the
question of "broker versus


do-it-yourself" came up of-
ten, in real estate as well.
In the end, most will tell
you that a good financial or
real estate broker is worth
his or her weight in gold,
where as poor money man-
agers may rob one of huge
chunks of wealth.


So, once one is commit-
ted to finding the best val-
ue, what's the secret to se-
lection? It's simple; do the
due diligence by examining
the source closely or let.
somebody you trust, with
experience, do it for you.
Then ask questions. Intro-


duce them to knowledge-
able family, especially in
the case of seniors select-
ing financial advisors or
anyone managing retire-
ment money Remember,
most people lose big mon-
ey, even to rip-offs, at the .
hands of trusted people."'


So, again, ask and ask
again to find'the best val-
ue.
If there are any ques-
tions on this topic or any
.financial issue, please
e-mail this reporter at
michael, greenepj.blishing.

The Board of County Commissioners agreed.
"My first order of business is to sit down with each
board member of both the Chamber and TDC to deter-
mine priorities and set marching orders," Ensminger
noted.
"I also am really looking forward to meeting current
chamber members one-on-one, face-to-face, over the
next 30-60 days. It's important to have a clear under-
standing ,of how the membership sees the perceived
strengths and weaknesses of the Chamber to determine
how best to meet their particular needs," he added.
'"And I really want to say thank you to Terri Shef-
buch for all her efforts on behalf of the Chamber during
the past year. Hats off to her for keeping the ball bounc-
ing as well as she did and I am delighted to be working
with her," Ensminger went on to say
Ensminger brings with him over three decades of
management, event development and publishing experi-
ence. He garnered huge praise, winning national recog-
nition, from Bass Pro Shops for his promotional talents
while working as the promotions manager for Bass Pro
Shops Outdoor World in Orlando. One of these events,
among some 500 he has directed and organized, is an on-
going major annual bass tournament fundraiser for the
Wolfson Children's Hospital in Jacksonville, raising
over one million dollars in it's nineteen year history.
Ensminger also served as vice-president and nation-
al advertising sales director for Outdoor Sports Market-
ing, Inc., an Orlando based company that published 24
fishing and hunting magazines that were circulated in
34 states. Most recently he served as the associate pub-
lisher for Greene Publishing, Inc.
As a young man, Ensminger lived in Madison for
four years and is a 1971 graduate of North Florida Ju-
nior College. He returned to Madison a year and a half
ago, "I had the need for what I call, 'urban detox', and it
was long overdue," he chuckled. "I have always held
Madison close to my heart and will never forget the
wonderful experiences that I had here in my youth.
Madison County has always been good to me. I'm thank-
ful that I have been given the opportunity to return the

Declare Your Financial
Independence Day
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones

As we get close to the 4th of July, you may be thinking
of where you'll be going to attend a picnic, watch fireworks
or engage in any of the other activities that accompany the
holiday. And while it's always meaningful to commemorate
our nation's many freedoms, you may want to take this
opportunity to think about another celebration of liberty -
your own "Financial lndepehd66hre Day."
However, unlike the 4th of July, Financial Independence
Day won't just show up on the calendar you have to work
to make it happen. Here are a few suggestions for doing
just that:
SLiberate yourself from debt. You don't have to be a
free spender to rack up a lot of debt the cost of living is
high, and sometimes you need to use loans and credit. But
the more money you owe, .the harder it is to achieve finan-
cial independence, so try to reduce, consolidate or elimi-
nate as many debts as possible. You may have to drive that
old car one year longer or postpone that vacation until you
can pay for it up front, but these and similar moves may pay
off down the road.
Emancipate your investments. To achieve your
long-term financial goals, you need your; investments to
.provide you with the combination of growth potential and
income that's appropriate for your individual needs. To
accomplish this, though, these investments need to be
"free" from being raided constantly to pay for the costs of
everyday life. That's why you should establish an emer-
gency fund containing six to 12 months' worth of living
expenses. By keeping 'this fund in a liquid account, you
won't have to tap into your investments the next time you
have a major car repair, need a new appliance or face an
unexpected medical bill.
Unchain the potential of your retirement
accounts. Every time you get a raise, boost your contribu-
tions to your retirement plan at work i.e., your 401(k),
403(b) or 457(b). Your money has the potential to grow on
a tax-deferred basis, and you typically contribute pre-tax
dollars, so the more you put in, the lower your annual
adjusted gross income will be. But if you're not contributing
the maximum allowed, or at least as much as you can
afford, you're putting "shackles" on the ability of these plans
to help you attain the retirement lifestyle you've envisioned.
i Free your family from threats to your Income.
Without your income, would your family be able to pay off
the mortgage? Or send your children to college? Or meet
any of the financial goals you've set? Financial independ-
ence will always be elusive unless you protect your family
from the potential loss of your income and that's why you
need adequate life insurance, especially in the years when
your children are young and you're still paying on your
house. At the same time, you may need disability insurance
to replace your income if you can't work due to illness or
injury. Your employer may offer a disability policy, but it
might be insufficient to meet your needs, so you may need
to add extra coverage.; '
By taking these and other steps, you can go a long way
toward turning Financial Independence Day from a goal to
a reality so take action soon.

Question: Now that I am retired I want to bleach
my smile. I tried the store bought bleach and my teeth
haven't whitened very much. Can I bleach my teeth at
my age?

Answer: Yes, you can bleach teeth at any age. But
you have to know the secret for making it work. The
secret for successful bleaching of teeth is TIME. The
bleach should be on the teeth for 100-120 hours of
bleaching time. Do not bleach for longer than 8 hours
at a time. Bleaching for 8 hours a night for 14 nights
results in dramatic change.

The mistake made by store bought systems is that the
trays fit so poorly the bleach washes away within a
few minutes. You pay for all that bleach and it
washes away. What a waste of money. Custom
fabricated trays are the big secret to fantastic results.
Custom trays are made from molds of your teeth
which prevent the bleach from being washed away.
Store trays just do not fit well enough to give the full
bleaching effect. We have also tried the bleaching
light systems. The bleaching light systems do work
but the bleach is on the teeth for less than an hour.
Results are limited with this short bleaching time. In
my experience, custom made bleaching trays for 120
hours outshines every other technique at any age.
