Monthly Regional Unemployment Highest Level In Five Years


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.

July 19 from the North Florida Work-
force Development Board, the not-sea-
sonally adjusted unemployment rate for
the region. (Hamilton, Jefferson,
Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee, and Tay-
lor Counties) was 5.6 percent for the
month of June. This represents a 1.8
percentage point increase compared to
the region's rate one year ago and the
highest June level since 2003. In Madi-

County Commission

Holds Land Use Workshop
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison County Board of County Commis-
sioners' meeting of July 16 included a thirty-minute
workshop hosted by representatives from the Talla-
hassee office of Kimley-Horn and Associates, a na-
tional engineering and planning firm. The company
recently performed a zoning/land use analysis using
funds obtained by a small grant designated for that
purpose. Building on directives set in motion by the
recent visioningg" process, several initial recommen-
dations were offered.
The workshop began with a brief explanation re-
garding the differences between "zoning" and "future
land use" provisions. It was noted that the two terms
are often used interchangeably, although there are dif-
ferences based on both governance and goals. The fu-
ture land use provisions, for instance, come from the
state comprehensive planning legislation of 1985,
where, as zoning is typically introduced at a local lev-
el, allowing for more specificity in outlining commer-
cial and residential land designations.
Madison County does not currently use zoning and

Prins Announces


Candidacy For


State Attorney

Alex Prins, thirty-three
year veteran of the State Attor-
ney's Office, including twenty-
.eight years as Chief Assistant,
has announced that he is a can-
didate for State Attorney, Third
Judicial Circuit. The Third Cir-
cuit includes Columbia, Dixie,
Hamilton, Lafayette, Madison,
Suwannee, and Taylor coun-
ties. When Prins stepped down
in 2007, he was Florida's
longest serving Chief Assistant
State Attorney.
Prins graduated from 5 Alex Prins
Florida State University with a
Bachelor's degree in Education, a Master's degree in
Social Studies Education and a Juris Doctor degree.
He is a former elementary school teacher and instruc-
tor in the College of Education at Florida State Uni-
versity Education is a priority and he has a strong
commitment to protect the youth in our Circuit. As
State Attorney, he plans to work closely with the At-
torney General, Law Enforcement officers, and the
school systems to sponsor meetings that will educate
the youth and the: community on how to safeguard
against internet predators.
In serving his community, Prins volunteered as
scoutmaster to Troop 597, Suwannee County Little
League President. and Suwannee High School
Wrestling Booster President. He is currently a mem-
ber of the Branford Rotary Club.
Experience matters! Prins has been actively in-
volved in the State Attorney budgeting process for the
past thirty-one years. His hands-on experience with
the budget will help him guide the office through these
difficult economic times and the state budget crunch.
He already has a plan to reduce office expenditures in
an effort to preserve jobs within the State Attorney's
Office. Regarding his fiscal conservatism with the"
state budget, Prins said, '"I believe we should begin
cutting costs at the top. As State Attorney, Iwill not ac-
cept a state car. Rather, I will use my own car, buy my
own gas, and not seek mileage reimbursement."
In his twenty-eight years as the Chief Assistant
State Attorney, Prins participated in the hiring and/or
training of new attorneys. Seven of the fourteen cur-
rent judges in the Third Judicial Circuit are former
Assistant State Attorneys.
Prins is the only one of the three candidates that
has taken several First Degree murder cases to jury
trial, including the conviction of Larry Joe Johnson
for the murder of Madison resident Mack Hadden, His
experience includes presenting cases to Grand Juries
and trying jury trials in all seven counties. He has han-
dled Governor's executive assignments from Jack-
sonville to Pensacola, and argued before the State Pa-
role Board and the Florida Cabinet to prevent the re-
lease of violent criminals.
As State Attorney, Prins has set goals:
To have regularly scheduled meetings with agen-
cies involved in the judicial system.
This will include Clerks of Court, Department of
Corrections, Division of Children and Families,
Guardian Ad Litem, Juvenile Justice, all Law Enforce-
ment agencies and Victim's Rights Advocates. The
purpose of these meetings would be to foster unity
among the various agencies in resolving community
problems and finding ways to better serve the public.
To have an open-door policy to all citizens. Prins
said, "I will continue to keep my name and home
phone number listed in my local phone book, as I have

Supervisor Of Elections

Not Allowed To Affilliate

With Any Committee
Dear Madison County Citizens,
I would like for you to know that even though the
July 18, 2008 Enterprise-Recorder showed my picture on
the front page in relation to "CALIL Organized to Fight
Liquor Petition" that I did not attend this meeting. As a
public official in the capacity of Supervisor of Elec-
tions, I am not allowed to be affiliated with any political
committee for or against any candidates and/or issues.
According to ES. 104.31, "Use his or her official
authority or influence for the purpose of interfer-
ing with an election or a nomination of office or co-
ercing or influencing another person's vote or af-
fecting the result thereof". However, I am required to
provide information to the public as specified by law. It
is also stated in ES. 104.0615, "A person may not di-
rectly or indirectly use or threaten to use force, vi-
olence, or intimidation or any tactic of coercion to
induce or compel an individual to vote or refrain
from voting for any particular individual or ballot
measure". This approach is unethical and any person
that violates this provision is guilty of a felony of the
third degree, punishable as provided in s.775.082 or
775.083,.

To conservatively manage the state budget and elim-
inate any unnecessary expenditures.
When the State Attorney's Office chooses to file or
declines to file criminal charges, the victim (s), police of-
ficers, or the victim's relatives often have questions. All
citizens have the right to know why the office made a
particular decision. "I strongly believe that the State At-
torney's office has a duty to inform them," said Prins.
Drugs are a significant problem in our communities.
The State Attorney's Office will be involved in re-estab-
lishing the circuit-wide Drug Task Force and provide ad-
ditional help to local Drug Task Forces.
Alex and his wife, Marilyn, have been married for 39
years. They have five children, Kim Prins Jensen, Alex
Prins II, Adam Prins (born in Madison), Kelly Prins
Webster, and Debby Prins. They have 10 grandchildren.
Both Alex and Marilyn are thankful that they were
able to raise their family in such a wonderful communi-
ty and are grateful to all who have touched their lives.
When he is asked why he wants to be State Attorney,
Prins responds: "For the past twenty-eight years, I have
been second in command at the State Attorney's Office.
The job of State Attorney is too important and too vital
to have to learn your responsibilities by on-the-job train-
ing. Experience matters! I bring 33 years of experience
in the courtroom and 31 years of administrative experi-
ence to the job. I am asking for your vote because Expe-
rience does matter!"

Workshop

according to the consulting review that was presented,
"Zoning within the County is not needed at this time."
However, some recommendations did suggest change,
stating that the "Land Development Code (another plan-
ning document), the Comprehensive Plan, and the Fu-
ture Land Use Map all must be made consistent."
Commissioners and visitors complemented the ef-
fort, although much additional clarification, particular-
ly in the area of subdivisions will be required. One con-
cerned citizen went so far as to say that the wrong ap-
proach could all but stagnate future growth, while an-
other swore to fight anything that hurts the current
agriculture statutes. The statements that elicited that
strong response suggested the county should expand the
current agriculture categories to allow more density
ranges. A similar recommendation was made for resi-
dential areas. -,*:, !-
The other topic that received considerable focu con-
cerned lands designated for economic development, es-
pecially at the interstate interchanges. It was noted that
these areas in particular must establish a targeted and
efficient land use growth model.
The term "overlays" was also referenced, describing
the idea of starting with a basic view of an area and
then overlaying more specific outlines and so on until
the use of specific parcels is clearly and efficiently de-
termined. In the end, the mandate to keep the flavor and
beauty of the county was still priority one, with devel-
opment, especially to create jobs, as a close second.

Peanut Boil Set For August 2
I hope everyone is doing well!
Bryant and Samantha Thigpen were married on Sat-
urday, July 19, at the First Presbyterian Church in Mon-
ticello. The newlyweds willreside in Lee after a honey-
moon in the Savannah, Ga. area.
Everyone had a fantastic time Saturday night at the
gospel sing at Midway Church of God. The Gibbs Fami-
ly were the performers and they turned in another out-
standing performance. They sang "Happy Birthday" to
Sister Carol Brooks, who celebrated her big day this past
Saturday.
Midway Church of God will hold a peanut boil on
Saturday, August 2, with special guests, the Singing Re-
flectsons. Everyone is invited to go out and enjoy some
great boiled peanuts and fellowship and listen to some
good gospel music. The fun will begin at 6 p.m.
I put the wrong name under a picture of people
working cattle on the Black Farm in Lee, which ran in
last Friday's Madison Enterprise-Recorder. I put the
name "Otto Sealey" when I should have put "Otto Lin-
ton." Believe me, I know the difference. Otto Linton was
my great-grandfather and the father of my grandmoth-

Happy birthday wishes go out to Julian Penny,

the block his resume is thin! Let's take
a trip down memory lane over the last 80
years to see what kind of experience our
presidents brought to the job.
Herbert Hoover was elected presi-
dent in 1928. An engineer by trade, he
had been a cabinet officer (Commerce)
and directed relief efforts in Europe fol-
lowing World War I. Hoover only served
a single term since blame for the Great
Depression was hung around his neck.
He was succeeded by Franklin Roo-
sevelt. FDR was the governor of what
was then our largest state, New York.
He never served in the military, but he
held the position of Assistant Secretary
of the Navy during WWI. That experi-
ence was put to good use as he led us
through World War II.
When FDR died in office, his rela-
tively unknown vice president Harry
Truman was sworn is as the next presi-
dent. Truman had combat experience in
WWI and had served as a judge before
being elected a senator from Missouri.
He spent ten years in the Senate before
becoming vice president.
In 1952, the country was weary of
the Korean War and turned to the Re-
publicans and their nominee Dwight D.
Eisenhower. Ike's election to the office
of president was his first race, but he
brought a lot of experience to the job as
an army officer, European coalition
leader in WWII, chief of staff, college
president, and the first NATO comman-
der.
In 1960, the electorate turned to a
young senator from Massachusetts,
John Kennedy, the man most often com-
pared to Obama. But JFK came to the
job with military experience as a junior
naval officer and twelve years legisla-
tive experience in the Congress and Sen-
ate. After the 1963 assassination of
Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson assumed the
mantle of chief executive. LBJ was the
vice president and before that, had 24
years legislative experience, the last
eight as majority leader of the Senate.
In 1968 the people were weary of the
Vietnam War and turned to the Republi-
cans and their nominee Richard Nixon.
Nixon was a naval officer in WWII and
junior Senator before being nominated
as Eisenhower's vice president. Nixon
served until his forced resignation dur-
ing Watergate. His successor was Ger-


/" aid Ford, who
had. consider-
able legislative
experience as a
Repub lican
leader in the
7 .House of Repre-
sentatives.
Jimmy
Carter was
elected as a sin-
gle term presi-
dent in 1976. While his experience has
been questioned, he did serve in the
Georgia Senate and as governor from
1970-74. Carter also had military service
in his resume as a naval officer. Ronald
Reagan was elected to office next: He
had served as governor of our largest
state, California, for two terms and also
had military service in his background
during WWII.
George H.W. Bush was the 41st presi:
dent elected in 1988. His resume was
probably more complete than any prede-
cessor: congressman, UN ambassador,
CIA director, and vice-president. Bush
41 was defeated by Governor Bill Clin-
ton of Arkansas in 1992. While
Arkansas is a relatively small state,
Clinton had 14 years' experience as at-
torney general and governor. Our cur-
rent president came to the job after the
2000 election with six years' experience
as Texas' governor.
That takes us through 80 years and
13 presidents. So how do the next crop of
wannabes compare? Barack Obama has
been a United States Senator for three
years. Before that, he served briefly in
the Illinois Senate. He lists his job expe-
rience as "community organizer."
John McCain served as a naval offi-
cer and aviator for 23 years, including
his five plus year stint as a prisoner of
war. In 1982, he was elected to the Con-
gress from Arizona. He succeeded Barry
Goldwater as senator in 1988 and has
served continuously in the Senate since
then. So both candidates are sitting sen-
ators, but they got there by very different
means. Only twice before in the 20th
Century did we elected a sitting senator
to the office of president.
Experience is an important factor in
our selection of president, and Obama
would undoubtedly be our most inexpe-
rienced president of the modern era.
That is a hurdle that the junior senator
from Illinois must overcome if he is to
become our 44th president.
Price at the pump update: Have you
noticed that the politicians who oppose
domestic oil and gas exploration keep
changing their story? First, they blamed
Big Oil and greedy CEOs fixing the price.
Then it was OPEC blocking the market.
Now they are blaming oil specula-
tors. It isn't working sooner or later,
they're going to run out of excuses.

Buyer, Beware Of Aged Tires


veals the week and year
when a tire was made. In
San Francisco, California,
for instance, reporters
from KGO-TV found a tire
made in 1999 and two from
2002 being sold as new by
Goodyear, one of the
largest tire retailers in
America.
As noted, deciphering
tire date codes can be con-
fusing. The date of manu-
facture is indicated by the
last group of digits in the
DOT manufacture code on
the sidewall of the tire.
The number is often
stamped in a recessed rec-
tangle,. The DOT code tells.
who manufactured the tire,
where it was made and
when. The last group of
digits in the code is the
date code that tells when
the tire was made.
Before 2000, the date
code had three digits. Since
2000, it has had four. The
first two digits are the
week of the year (01 = the


first week of January). The
third digit (for tires made
before 2000) is the year (1 =
1991). For most tires made
after 2000, the third and
fourth digits are the year
(04 = 2004).
Consider the code
8PY806, for instance,
shown in the accompany-
ing picture. The 8PY is: a
manufacturing .' "shift
code," and the dating refer-
ence for the tire is 0806;
which in tire lingo trans-
lates into the eighth week
(08) in the year 2006(06).
The date of manufac-
ture is essential informa-
tiornfr c q~yn ,app tire
buyers because, tires dete-
riorate even if they are not
used. European automo-
bile manufacturers recom-
mend replacing any tire
that is more than six years
old, including the spare
tire. No such recommenda-
tions have yet been made
by domestic vehicle manu-
facturers.

BONDS VS. BOND FUNDS:
WHICH ARE RIGHT FOR YOU?
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
As an investor, you may find that bonds can be a valu-
able part of your portfolio. But choosing to invest in bonds is
one thing and choosing how to invest in them is another.
Basically, you've got two choices: individual bonds or bond-
based mutual funds. Which approach is right for you?
There's no one right answer foreveryone: So let's review
some of the common reasons fpr ingesting in onrds and see
how they are addressed by iridividuil bonds and by bond
funds:

Diversification By investing in bonds, you can help
diversify a portfolio that may be dominated by stocks. (Keep
in mind,:though, that diversification, by itself, cannot guaran-
tee a profit or protect you against a loss in a declining mar-
ket). While individual bonds can help diversify your holdings,
you may be able to achieve broader diversification by invest-
ing in a bond fund, which may own a mix of corporate and
government bonds.
Fixed rate of return When you buy an individual bond,
you receive a fixed interest rate and predictable interest pay-
ments. Until your bond matures, or unless it is "called"
(bought back) by the issuer, you will always receive the same
rate of return. But a bond fund does not pay you a fixed rate
of return; instead, you receive dividends, which will fluctuate,
based on the underlying bonds' interest rates and capital
appreciation.
Return of principal If you buy an individual bond, you
will get your principal back when the bond matures,' provided
the issuer doesn't default. (However, before the bond
matures, its value will rise and fall, based on current market
interest rates.) Bond funds do not mature and have no obli-
gation to return your.principal, so you could lose some or all
of your initial investment when you sell your shares which is
based on current market values.
Costs -You can invest in most types of bonds for a rela-
tively small fee or commission. But if you buy a bond fund,
you will be subject to the same types of charges such as
sales charges, management fees and service fees that
are attached to many types of mutual funds.
Taxes When you own individual bonds, you'll pay current
income taxes on your interest payments, but you won't be
subject to capital gains if you hold your bonds until they
mature. However, if you purchase bond funds, you could be
subject to capital gains taxes in two different ways: if you sell
your fund shares for a profit or if the fund manager sells an
underlying bond for more than it's worth. If that happens, the
capital gain and the tax obligation will be passed on to
you. This increased capital gains liability is one reason that
many people put bond funds in a tax-deferred vehicle, such
as an IRA or a 401(k).

Before investing in a bond or bond fund, consult with
your financial advisor to see which vehicle is appropriate for
your needs. Also, before purchasing a bond fund, read the
prospectus carefully. The prospectus contains more com-
plete information, including the funds investment objectives,
risks, charges and expenses as well as other important infor-
mation that should be carefully considered before you invest
or send money.

By getting the help you need, and by doing some home-
work on your own, you can find the bonds or bond funds that
can help you make progress toward your key financial goals.

You've seen it on TV, read it in the
news and maybe even heard it from
your mother: money is one of the top
things married couples fight about. Fi-
nances can be a source of strife for en-
gaged couples as well, especially as
wedding day bills loom and they face
the prospect of merging their money
after marriage.
"Study after study has shown that
disagreements over how to manage
money can cause significant stress in a
marriage," says Maxine Sweet, vice
president of education for Experian.'
"With all the other stresses associated
with planning a wedding, engaged cou-
ples would be wise to act preemptively
to minimize conflict over money."
So how can you ensure money woes
won't cast a shadow over the biggest
day. of your life and your wedded
bliss afterward? Consider the follow-
ing tips:
First, establish a budget for your


wedding. While planning your wed-
ding is a time for joy and giddy excite-
ment, budgeting is a necessary down-
to-earth reality. "Plan without a budget
and you may find yourself without
enough money for flowers or music a
week before the ceremony," Sweet cau-
tions. "Or worse, you could overspend
and start your married life together
with unpaid and unpayable wed-
ding bills." Unpaid bills could damage
your credit standing, so consider
checking your credit report to help you
understand your finances at
www.FreeCreditReport.com.
To create a budget, evaluate all pos-
sible sources of funding for your wed-
ding. In the old days, the bride's family
bore the brunt of wedding day expens-
es. Many couples now foot the entire
bill for their weddings.
SLuckier ones may draw some finan-
cial support from either or both sets of
parents. A rare few will have the entire

Mone Taks or Newlywed


Two out of three married cou-
ples consider money a major source
of potential conflicts in their mar-
riages, according to a survey con-
ducted by the non-profit Consumer
Credit Counseling Service. As new-
lyweds prepare. to make exciting
plans for their new life together,
Loretta Abrams, senior vice presi-
dent of Consumer Affairs, HSBC-
North America, offers the following
tips to help couples address the chal-
lenges of managing money togeth-
er:
Develop.a financial goal.
.Share your plans together. Cre-
ate a list of short-, medium- and
long-term goals and then compare
notes (buying a house or a car, hav-
ing children, moving to a new city
or starting a business). For each
goal, figure out how much money
you need to get there and how long
you think it should take.
Decide how to handle
the money.
Will the two of you maintain
separate accounts and divide up
household expenses or will you
maintain separate discretionary ac-
counts with a combined household
account? Are you willing to merge
all finances? Let your individual
"money personalities" dictate the
right approach for you. If you share
similar habits and priorities, com-
bining all finances may be the per-
fect approach; however, if your
habits are vastly different, it may
make sense to maintain separate ac-
counts.
Create a budget together.
Check your past spending histo-
ry and calculate your past debts. You
have probably each developed very
different money styles. Spending
Thursday night out with your
friends or buying season tickets for


your favorite team may still be in
the cards but talk it through so
you're clear about priorities. Create
a budget, that will let you maximize
your income and track your actual
cash flow to make sure you're stay-


ing within the boundaries you've set
for yourself. Usually, it's a month-to-
month projection of the amounts al-
located to each expense item based on
your income. When you make a pur-
chase or pay a bill, write it down and
subtract it from the total you planned
for that expense.
Sticking to a budget can be diffi-
cult and at times frustrating and
there's no guarantee you'll see huge
savings in the short term, but these
two suggestions may make the
process easier:
Go digital-Budgeting software
packages and online resources can
help. Most programs can perform ba-
sic budgeting tasks as well as sophis-
ticated transac-
tions.
Keep it sim-
ple--Most experts
agree that the key 6


to a successful budget is to keep it
simple and practical. Most of all, be
realistic. If you love going to the
movies, don't drop them completely
Instead, try to cut back on the Iuiiiber
of times you go or start a new tradi-
tion of movie nights at home.
Take advantage of
tax-saving plans.
If you're planning to have chil-
dren, look into some specific tax-sav-
ing accounts or the 529 plans now. The
cost of a higher education is steadily
rising, so the prospect of paying for a
four-year college education is not an
insignificant obligation.
if you have the option of saving
for retirement through an employer-
sponsored retirement plan, such as a
401(k), open an account immediately
You can defer a certain amount of
your pretax salary into the account.
In many cases, your employer will
match a portion of your savings. In
this way you have the double advan-
tage of saving money on taxes now
and building your retirement account
for the future.
Build emergency reserves.
Be prepared for -unexpected
events such as job loss or major
household repairs with an emergency
account equal to three to six months'
expenses. To build up this account,
have between 2 and 10 percent of your
paycheck automatically deposited
into savings--consider an online sav-
ings account, which offers higher
yield and is easy to manage.

ICBA Debunks Deposit Insurance Myths


The Independent Community Bankers of
America (ICBA) is challenging unfounded concerns
raised about the safety of bank deposits. Federal de-
posit insurance guarantees your deposits are safe in
every financial institution insured by the Federal
Deposit Insurance Corporation, including commu-
nity banks. Don't believe the hype. Get the facts.
Myth: Your money is safer in big banks.
Fact: No one has ever lost a penny of FDIC-in-
sured deposits held in community banks. The FDIC
insures deposits up to $100,000 per depositor and
$250,000 for certain retirement accounts. If you have
more than $100,000 at a community bank, you can
still be fully insured if your accounts meet certain
requirements. For example, accounts owned by a
single person are separately insured from joint ac-

According to the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S.
Department of Labor, effective July 24 the federally man-
dated minimum wage will be increased from $5.85 per
hour to $6.55 per hour in the second of three scheduled
annual increases that started in 2007. The third increase
set for 2009 willtake the federal rate up another 70 cents
to $7.25 per hour.
Many states, including Florida, are not immediately
impacted by the 2008 increase because the Florida state
minimum is already above the federal increase. Flori-
da's minimum wage is currently set at $6.79 per hour.
Minimum wage is a topic that has garnered a lot of
debate over the years as those proponents of a pure cap-
ital market suggest that there is no better means to set
the market than simply letting supply and demand set
the labor market. Basically, what someone is willing to

counts or retirement accounts owned by that per-
son. The FDIC's Electronic Deposit Insurance Esti-
mator (on the Web at http://www.fdic.gov/edie) can
determine your coverage.
Community banks focus on the needs of local
families, businesses and farmers, and their top ex-
ecutives are generally available oi site to answer
your questions directly and make timely decisions.
Many of the nation's largest banks are structured to
serve large corporations and have CEOs headquar-
tered in office suites, not local banks.
Myth: The FDIC takeover of IndyMac Bancorp
means my bank is at risk.
Fact: IndyMac Bancorp was taken over because,
in part, depositors became fearful and attempted to
close their accounts at once, destabilizing the bank.

accept is fair.
Conversely, those legislators supporting minimum
wage are also direct in their views, stating that industry
has attempted to take advantage of labor for centuries
and must be protected. In a simplified view, it's like say-
ing that a business isn't viable if it needs to be built on
the back of labor rates insufficient to support basic
needs. Immigration labor in Florida has often been a
category of this topic.
At the end of the day, there remain numerous ex-
penses that determine the profits of a business. Gas
prices, for example, have literally crushed the profit
margin of a broad range of businesses, as well as robbed
the pocketbooks of millions of consumers. By contrast,
this minimum wage hike is not expected to have that
type of sudden detrimental effect, although next year's
scheduled increase may be another story altogether.
Consider Florida again. The difference between the
current state minimum of $6.79 and the 2009 federal tar-
get of $7.25 is 46 cents, representing approximately a sev-
en percent increase in one year. This increase is more
than double the current inflation rate, so obviously
Florida's minimum wage intensive industries Will have
to absorb or pass on the excess to remain in business.
However, when one considers the dependence of inter-
state commerce, and that other states have not increased
their rates in anticipation of the federal increases, the
economic challenges created for those states will defi-
nitely spill into Florida's economy
Staff writer Michael Curtis can be reached at.
michael@greenepublishing.com.


The overwhelming majority of the nation's banks
are safe and well capitalized. As stated by FDIC
Chairman Sheila Bair, IndyMac is only one of near-
ly 8,500 depository institutions operating in the
United States and represents just 0.2 percent of
banking-industry assets. There is little chance your
bank will be taken over by the FDIC. And if that
does happen, you will continue to have virtually un-
interrupted access to your insured deposits.
Myth: Community banks are involved in prob-
lems with subprime mortgage lending.
Fact: Community banks are common-sense
lenders that have avoided subprime lending.
There is no mortgage-lending crisis for com-
munity banks because they are well-run, highly
capitalized, tightly regulated and more risk-averse
than big banks. Community banks have money to
lend homeowners for new purchases and to refi-
nance existing mortgages. In spite of talk of a
credit crunch, community banks are open for busi-
ness.

Question: What is the difference between a dentist
with a DDS degree vs. one with a DMD degree?
Answer: A lot of confusion for the public, for one!
You say 'toe-may-toe' and I say "toe-mah-toe"; let's
forget the whole darn thing....."

The DDS, and DMD degree are the EXACT same
degree, but with different names. Both doctors have
received the same training. It does not imply one is an
oral surgeon and the other one is not, nor does it
indicate if the dentist in question has completed any.
type of specialty such as orthodontist or periodontics.

In the 1800's all dental schools used the name DDS
(doctor of dental surgery) Some of the medical
schools started affiliated dental schools and decided to
go with the Latin degree, called DMD (Dentiste
Medicinae Doctor). About one third of current dental
schools still use the Latin degree name. (Hey, it's all
Greek to me!)

6936. If you have lost or found an animal, you would like to re-
port. Please feel free to call us and I will put your report in the
paper free.

Spaying And Neutering
Experts, say the most important thing people can do to help
their pets is to get them spayed or neutered. This means the an-
imals get an operation, to be sure they can't have kittens or pup-
pies. They are asleep during the operation, so they aren't scared
or in pain.
Spaying and neutering are so important because there are so
many animals needing care and not enough homes or shelters for
them.
One cat or dog can have many litters in its life. Its kittens or
puppies can have many litters, too. This can end up creating
thousands of new cats and dogs.

Assessment NFCC's Book

Collection Continually Improving,


North. Florida Community College's
Marshall Hamilton Library staff strive to
keep'the Library's book collection as cur-
rent as possible and according to a recent
assessment by the College Center for Li-
brary Automation (CCLA), they are do-
ing a great job, Among its peer communi-
ty college. NFCC ranks first in terms of
lowest-overall edian age of its books.
With more hathanthirty thousand total
books in circUlation, the Library extracts
approximately 1500 books from its collec-
tion each year so newer texts can be
added. Newer books tend to circulate bet-
ter among Library patrons and offer cur-
rent information for students, faculty
and the community
"The youth of our collection is an in-
dicator; of quality," said Sheila Hiss, Di-
rector of Library and Learning Re-
sources at NFCC. "Our goal is to offer
books that meet our faculty needs and
provide our students with new and rele-
vant research material."
The NFCC Library has improved its
collection significantly in the areas of
Technology,Sciences. and Social Science
since 1998, In 1998 the age of NFCC's tech-
nology books collection averaged at 20
years old; it;now averages at 12 years old.
In socialsciences, NFCC improved its col-
lection from a median age of 22 to 15 and


in sciences improved from a median age
of 15 to 11 years. CCLA stated that the
"decrease in the percentage of total from
1998 to 2007 for the North Florida Com-
munity College collection shows contain.
ued attention to collection management.",
In other words, the NFCC Library is dol
ing an outstanding job at updating its col
election of books. .
NFCC also stands out as a leader
among similar sized community college
in Florida when comparing the percent
age of books in its collection. publisheM
prior to 1970. With a continuing goal tc
decrease older books in circulation, onl
ten percent of NFCC's books in tle ub
ject of technology are dated pre-1970;
improvement from twenty-nine percent
in 1998. Other areas also indicate'
progress only thirteen percent of scI
ence books are currently dated.pre-197
showing a significant improvement from
forty percent in 1998; social sciences art
at twenty-one percent and 'Humanifie
are at.thirty-eight percent. :
"The Library is resource for the
college," said Hiss. "We depend on the in
put of faculty and students forsugges.
tions on the types of materials and book
that are needed and we depend on the ;ol
lege administration's committerit Ei-
quality library." -
