I'II Vote "No" ,
II.- v t N Inc


My friends, family and co-workers know I enjoy a
glass of wine with a special dinner. However, I will vote
against the availability of hard liquor in Madison
County.Why? Because of the percentage of persons in
society who cannot just have one or two drinks and stop.
So for the: Children who will go to bed hungry be-
cause Mom or Dad stopped at the liquor store instead of
the grocery store, I'll vote "No."
For the children who will go to school in tattered
clothes because Mom or Dad bought liquor:instead of
school clothes, I'll vote "No."
For the child who will wait in the cold for the school
bus without a coat,because Mom or Dad bought liquor
instead of a child's coat, I'll vote "No."
For the children who suffer mental,physical,emo-
tional or sexual abuse. at the mercy of an intoxicated
parent, I'll vote "No."
For the teenagers who will die far too young because
they did not realize how strong the liquor was and crash
their cars, I'll vote "No."
or the parents who will be visited in thelate of night
or wee hours of the morning to be told their teenager
has died in a car accident involving alcohol, I'll vote
"No."


For the children who will be left without a Mom or
Dad because they were killed by a drunk driver, I'll vote
"No."
For the State Troopers, County Sheriffs, City Police
and volunteer Firefighters who have to see the horror of
drunk driving accidents, I'll vote "No."
For the EMTs, Paramedics, Nurses and Doctors who
work so hard to save the lives of the accident victims,
I'll vote "No." .
The loss of our quality of life in this county and the
suffering of the innocent far outweighs any gain of tax
dollars.
The county already has the availability of beer and
wine. Our local law enforcement officers already stay
busy on Friday and Saturday nights with alcohol relat-
ed disturbances.
So, for the percentage of persons in our community
who will not be able to have one or two drinks and
stop,it is my hope and prayer that my family, friends ,
co-workers and neighbors will vote "No" to hard liquor
in our community

Bill Of Rigt
We, the sensible people of the United States, in an at-
tempt to help everyone get along, -restore some sem-
blance of justice, avoid any more riots, keep our nation
safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings
of debt-free liberty to our great-great-great-grandchil-
dren, and ourselves, hereby try one more time to ordain
and establish some common sense guidelines for the ter-
minally whiny, guilt-ridden, deluded, and other mental-
ly weak folk who surround us:.
We hold these truths to be self-evident: that a whole
lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are.
so dim that they require a Bill of No Rights.
ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car,
big screen TV or any other form of wealth. More power.
to you if you can legally acquire them, but No one is
guaranteeing anything:
ARTICLE II: You do. not have the right to never be
offended. This nation, is based on freedom, and that
means freedom for everyone not just you! You may
leave the room, change the channel, express a different
opinion, etc., But the world is full of idiots, and probably
always will be. Accept it.
ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free
from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn
to be more careful, do not expect the tool manufacturer
to make you and all your relatives independently
wealthy.
ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food
and housing. Americans are the most charitable people
to be. found, and will gladly help anyone truly in need,

Lewis is a recent Madison resident, moving
here two years ago to be closer to her mother.
Lewis' mother moved here years ago to be closer
to her brother, thus creating a family tradition.
SPrior to becoming a Madisonian, Lewis was
a photography and science teacher for 25 years
in Orlando.
When asked her favorite phrase or motto,
Lewis responded with "exposure determines
density; developing determines contrast."
"It can be taken either literally or esoterical-
ly," Lewis shared.


its Restated
but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing gener-
ation after generation of professional couch potatoes
who achieve nothing more than the creation of another
generation of professional couch potatoes.,
ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free health
care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public
housing, we're just not interested in public health care..
SARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physical-
ly harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally
maim, or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of
us try to see you fry in the electric chair.
ARTICLE VII: You do not have the right to the pos-
sessions of others. If. you rob,,cheat or coerce away the
goods or services of other citizens, don't be surprised if
the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place
where you still won't have the right to a car, a big screen
color TV or a life of leisure.
ARTICLE VIII: You don't have the right to demand
that our children risk their lives. in foreign wars to
soothe your aching conscience. We hate oppressive gov-
ernments and won't lift a finger to stop you from going
to fight if you want to. However, we are not required to
parent the entire world and do not want to spend so
much of our blood and money battling each and every
little tyrant with a military uniform and a funny hat.
ARTICLE IX: You don't have the right to a job. All
of us sure want you to have one, and will gladly help you
'along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage
of the opportunities of education and vocational train-
ing laid before you to make yourself useful.
ARTICLE X: You do not have the right to.happiness.
Being an American means that you have the right to
freely pursue happiness which, by the way, is a lot eas-
ier if you are unencumbered by an over abundance of
idiotic laws, created by those of you who were confused
by the Bill of Rights.


Is The Music Changing Or

Am I Getting Old?
Is The Music Changing Or Am I Getting Old? This is
a question that I ask myself constantly anymore. I don't
think I'm old, so I reason that the music MUST be
changing.
I remember when I was a teenager; my parents hat-
ed the music that I wanted to listen to on the radio. I did-
n't like their music and they didn't like my "pop" music
(affectionately now known as '80's music.) So, I grew to
like country music as a teenager, because that was our
"compromise" station. Of course, they had their 8-
tracks of Johnny Cash, Tammy Wynette, Kenny Rogers,
and George Jones, and I grew to like these "old timers,"
too.' Of course, my parents didn't seem to like the up-
and-coming new country singers (back then) such as
Randy Travis, George Straight and Garth Brooks. They
said that they weren't "real" country
SI am now finding myself in the same.predicament
that my parents used to be in. However, I remember my
parents being A LOT older then, than what I am now. I
mean, when I was 13 my parents were 43 and when I was
15 they were 45. That was OLD. They didn't know any-
thing; they were so "out of touch."
Now here I am, with a 13-and-15 year old. I, at the
ripe YOUNG age of 39, have decided that it must be that
the music is changing. Because there is no way I'm as
old as my parents were back then. I'm still "young and
hip." I like to listen to my music loud (as long as it's my
music, of course.)
I raised my kids well they like country music. We
listen to it all the time (along with some Bon Jovi,
AC/DC, Lynard Skynard and the '80's pop music.). How-
ever, there are times that I'm finding myself. listening to
things that cannot be justified as good music. ILcannot
even understand the words. I try to be "cool." I'll listen
to it just as long as I possibly can, before having to
change the channel back to country
As I write this column, my girls and I are headed
back from a weekend trip at the beach. I sit in my car,
laptop open and ready, wondering, "What can I write
about?" I can't think well enough to decide. I can't con-
centrate. I can't get my mind off.the fact of how much I
want to change that darn radio station!!!!
I still love listening to the "old timers" such as
George Jones and Johnny Cash, and some of the "old
timers" are still around -.such as Dolly Parton and Ken-
ny Rogers (whom I both love.) Mix these in with singers
such as Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, and Charlie Daniels,
and I'm set to go.
But, once again I find myself asking, "Is the music
changing or am I getting old?" I, just like my parents did
30 years ago, sit and wonder how some of the up and ris-
ing country singers are actually making it in the coun-
try "world." Bon Jovi now call themselves country, and
there is actually a "Country Rap Song.'
I don't care how old I am Bon Jovi is NOT country,
and rap will NEVER be country.
So, I have decided, that it is in fact. that the music is
changing.
Sit and think about it!
Until then... I'll see you around the town.

Seventy years

Central Europe
was unfolding Security
that -would have
lasting world- Joe Boyles
wide implica- Guest Columnist
tions. At issue
was the future of
Czechoslovakia
and the antago-
nist was Nazi Germany and its dictator
Adolph Hitler .
At the time, Czechoslovakia was a
relatively new nation, created in the af-
termath of World War I by the Versailles
Treaty where seventy nations dealt with
the. fracturing of four former empires.
This new nation had formerly been part
of the Hapsburg Empire of Austria-Hun-
gary As such, the nation of 14 million
souls included ethnic Slavs,. Poles, and
Germans.
In his first two land-grabs, Hitler had
remilitarized the Rhineland and swal-
lowed Austria. Now he set his eyes
southeast toward the Sudetenland in the
western portion of Czechoslovakia that
bordered on Germany and Austria. This
region was populated by 3 million ethnic
Germans and Hitler's agents had been
stirring up trouble among the masses.
This was Hitler's excuse for the crisis,
but as early as six months before, he had
ordered the German Army to prepare for
invasion and occupation of the Czech Re-
public.
The new Czech nation under the
presidency of Eduard Benes was fearful
of its' powerful northern neighbor and
had entered into mutual defense treaties
with France and Russia. While Czecho-
slovakia had a powerful military for a
small nation and impressive defensive
forts along its western border, the
treaties reinforced their security
In mid-September, Hitler announced
that he could no longer tolerate (so he
claimed) the abuses of the Sudeten peo-
ple and promised that unless this matter
was diplomatically resolved, he would re-
sort to force.
The trauma of World War I was still
fresh on the minds of Europeans, and
their leaders rushed forward to try and
avoid another costly war. The leader of
this diplomatic pack was Britain's Prime,
Minister Neville Chamberlain. In less
than three weeks, the prime minister
would make three trips to Hitler's
doorstep to attempt a brokered solution
that would appease the Nazi dictator.
Chamberlain was working against a
deadline Hitler had mobilized his army
and given them an invasion date of Octo-
ber 1.
Adolph Hitler had four things work-
ing against his plan. First, the Czech de-
fenses in the Bohemian mountains were
too strong for his military to defeat in
Blitzkrieg fashion. Second, he could
mount only five regular and seven weak

Ssions to protect
his western
flank from at-
tack by the
Czech ally
France. The
French would
overwhelm this
force with at
least 65 divi-'
sions. Third, the
British Fleet and air forces would control
the sea lanes and air space. And finally,
many of the senior German army offi-
cers knew that their nation could not win
a war at this point and were plotting to
overthrow.the Fuehrer.
Against all of these odds, Hitler bet
that the British and French would sacri-
fice Czechoslovakia and avoid war at any
cost. He was right.
In his 1959 classic The Rise and Fall of
the Third Reich, reporter William L Shir-
er devotes nearly one hundred pages to
the 1938 crisis that led to the Munich'
Agreement and dismemberment of
Czechoslovakia. Shirer makes an excel-
lent case that this was the last opportuni-
ty to stop Hitler before war broke out
eleven months later, a war that would
Eventually cost the lives of 50 million
people. In this light, it is agonizing to'
read the account and imagine what
might have been had the western democ-
racies showed any resolve and moral
leadership.
Hitler's naive dupe was Chamber-
lain. It is hard to imagine that a major
world leader would be willing to sacrifice
the sovereignty of another nation and its
people to the Nazi warlord, but he did.
He brokered the deal that would hand
major portions of Czechoslovakia, peo-
ple and property, to the Germans and
forced the Czech Republic to accept the
agreement. It was the ultimate example
of appeasement avoid war at any cost.
The Czechs were not even consulted dur-
ing the negotiations; rather they were in-
formed of the results at the conclusion.
In appeasing Hitler, Chamberlain put
his blinders on and ignored obvious sig-
nals that could be used to his advantage.
He knew that the German generals were
plotting against Hitler, but chose to ig-
nore this important fact of internal dis-'
sension. He refused to consider the

According to a previ-
ously-unsealed Indictment
in this case and evidence
presented at the 2005 trial
of two of CHAVEZAYON's
co-conspirators, JAIME
CHAVEZ and ANASTA-
CIO ACOSTA-FELIX:
CHAVEZ-AYON was a
leader of the cartel in
Sinaloa, Mbxico, and from
at least July 2002 until at
least April 2003, he con-
spired with at least 14 oth-
er individuals to distrib-
ute hundreds of kilograms
of cocaine in the United
States. CHAVEZAYON ,di-
rectly supervised JAIME
CHAVEZ, the United
States-based leader of this
organization, and, coordi-
nated the shipment and,
transportation of this co-
caine to the United States,
which was then distrib-
uted in Los Angeles,
Chicago and New York.
During court-authorized
wire interceptions,
CHAVEZ-AYON and
JAIME CHAVEZ were in-
tercepted discussing ship-
ments of cocaine, and
CHAVEZAYON's fears that
losses of drugs and driig
proceeds would get
CHAVEZ-AYON killed.
This extradition is the
result of a joint investiga-
tion involving the United
States Attorney's Office,
the New York Drug. En-
forcement Task Force
Group T-21 which con-
sists of agents and officers
of the Drug Enforcement
Administration, New York'
Police Department and
New York State Police -
and ICE in New York, Los
Angeles, Chicago and
Mexico. U.S. Attorney
GARCIA praised the out-


standing investigative
work of the DEA and ICE.
Assistance regarding the
extradition was provided
by the Criminal Division's
Office of International Af-
fairs.
Mr. GARCIA stated:
"The extradition of this
leader of a Mexican co-
caine cartel is the latest
example of our continuing
cooperation with our law
enforcement partners in
Mexico to ensure that car-
tel leaders who target this
country face justice in a
United States courtroom."
"This extradition is
another example of the
great work by our Special
Agents and law enforce-
ment partners," said PE-
TER J. SMITH, Special
Agent-in-Charge of the Of-
fice, of Investigation for
ICE in New York. Drug
smuggling is a serious
crime and ICE will use all
of its investigative re-
sources to keep illegal
drugs off our streets."
If convicted, CHAVEZ-
,AYON faces a maximum
sentence of life in prison
and a mandatory mini-
mum sentence of 10 years
in prison. However, pur-
suant to an extradition
treaty with Mexico, the
United States has provided
assurances to that it will
not seek a life sentence for
CHAVEZ-AYON or any
other defendant extradited
from Mexico. *
The charges.contained
in these Indictment are
merely accusations, and
the defendant is presumed
innocent unless a-nd-until
proven guilty '
Assistant United States
Attorneys ANIRUDH
BANSAL and ERIC SNY-
DER are in charge of the
prosecution.

Question: I want to replace my grey fillings with
those tooth colored fillings. Do I need to see a
Cosmetic Dentist to get that type of filling?

Answer: Nooope! Have you ever heard of a
Unicorn, the mythical horse-tike creature with the horn
on it's forehead? Many people know exactly what a
unicorn is if you ask them,-but it actually does not exist.
The same is true for a "Cosmetic Dentist." Everyone
thinks they know what a Cosmetic Dentist is, but it is
actually a myth. The American Dental Association
defines the 16 specialties of. Dentistry. Cosmetic
Dentist is not one of the specialties.

Cosmetic Dentistry merely describes tooth colored.
bonded fillings, veneers, and crowns which all Dentists
perform routinely in their General Practice. Dentists
enjoy the Smile makeover challenge. I feel safe going
out on a limb and stating that every dentist in the United
States is trained in bonded fillings. The bonding tech-
nique has been part of dental school curriculum since
the 1970's and is a staple on all General.Dental prac-
tices.

My suggestion, if you see a Dental makeover show on
TV and wonder about them, ask your Dentist if he does
these.procedures. I think you will be surprised at the
advanced training and techniques offered in most
dental offices.

Regional Task Force Showcases Advanced Security To Rotarians

The North Florida Re-
gional Domestic Security
Task Force (NFRDSTF) is
one of seven regional divi-
sions that come under the
governance of the Florida
Department of Law En-
forcement (FDLE). Lesser-
populated counties like
Madison. receive key sup-
port from the group in the
form of specialized man-
power, armored vehicles
and weaponry.
On Wednesday, Sep-

staff accepted the invita-
tion of Madison County
Sheriff Pete Bucher to.

"Following 9-11, re-
sources from Homeland
Security were coordinated
with the FDLE to produce
regional task forces de-


and police departments in
,their respective regions.
When. a situation comes
up in Madison County, like
the one in Greenville re-
cently, we send in the nec-
essary equipment and per-
sonnel to assist local law


enforcement. The cost is
simply to high. for every
county to have their own
task force," Walker ex-
plained.
Following Walker's
discussion, Rotarians
were treated to a demon-
stration of robot technolo-


gy, as well as a variety of
weaponry. The real show-
case, however, was the ar-
mored personnel carrier
that sat on the lawn in
front of the meeting hall,
sending the message that
domestic attacks in all
forms will be dealt a
strong and swift response.
In the end, President
Alston Kelly presented Ro-

Celebration Of Life Banquet



Raises Critical Awareness


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
In the past few weeks, political debates regarding a
woman's right to choose have exploded following the
Democratic and Republican National Conventions. To
many, however, this is far more than a'topic of debate,
instead representing an urgent cause that stands sec-
ond to none as far as social priority.
Standing firm in the knowledge that life begins at
conception and must therefore be protected from that
moment until death, supporters of A Woman's Preg-
nancy Center (AWPC) of Madison gathered at the Di-
vine Events Banquet Hall on September 9 to raise
awareness and critically needed resources to operate
the center.
More,of a ministry than business, AWPC Executive
Director Barb Shackelford joined board members, fea-
tured speakers and guests for an evening of sharing
hearts and souls, which is exactly the approach staff
and volunteers take with each and every woman who
comes through their doors seeking help at a time when
friends are often more important than doctors and
nurses.
As diners walked through the exquisite buffet,
Harpist Rebecca Sheats, whose large and lovely family
was also in attendance, serenaded them. In fact, her
mother, Desiree Sheats, along with husband Philip,
will be serving as Interim Director 6f the Madison
Center. There was also a moving voice solo performed
by Lynn Hanners prior to the Center Report.
To open her report, Shackelford showcased a tool
that is often the difference between client acceptance
and rejection when considering pregnancy termina-
tion. This special tool, which has been used foi' years
in prenatal care, is simply the ultrasound, or sono-
gram, machine. Simply getting the expecting mother
to view the child, even at the earliest stages of move-
ment, is often sufficient to motivate them to life alter-
natives.
Callie Kervin then provided a video testimonial,
followed by Debbie Hunter, who shared her personal
and professional experiences that have made her an in-
valuable resource in developing the organization.
These testimonials set the stage for Pastor John Rick-
enbacker, the featured speaker for the evening.

Combining doses of humor with a very serious
creed, Rickenbacker summed up the point very effec-
tively, saying; "Human life is sacred because man was
made in God's image," further noting that many of the
most notable ministries consider the elimination of
abortion as a form of birth control, now standing at
50,000,000 children and adding 4,400 daily, the top pri-
ority for all Christians."
Following prayer, guests gave generously of their

Chill!


By Ronda Addy


You have so many things to do before your wedding day that you
can't imagine getting everything done. Everyone has their own stories,
good and bad, of what they did and maybe you should consider doing
this, that or the other for your wedding. You are getting stressed out,
which doesn't make you happy in what should be a happy time.

S You need to realize that planning a wedding can be stressful and
be prepared to deal with that fact. Don't fall into the trap of thinking
that everything will go perfectly. This will only add to your stress when
things don't. Focus on what you have to work with, not on what you
don't have. Everyone will have their own ideas about your wedding, but
keep in mind you can't please everyone. You and your spouse-to-be are
the only ones you need to please because it is your wedding.
In order to deal with stress, you need to recognize it. Symptoms include
headaches, moodiness, poor concentration, stomachaches, problems sleeping,
racing thoughts and irritability. Should these symptoms persist r get worse,
they could indicate a more serious condition, so pay attention to what your body
is telling you.
After you have acknowledged you are feeling stressed, there are a few things
you can do to cope with it. These include:
S* Space out deadlines and set them far enough ahead to allow for problems.
Don't let everything go until the last minute.
Delegate responsibilities to people you trust. Check in with them occasional-
ly but let them handle things.
S* Set botudaries and be assertive. If others are interfering too much or taking up too
much of your time, let them know how you feel without being too aggressive.
-* Don't take everything so seriously Try to laugh when things go wrong.
Spend tine with your spouse-to-be. Discuss everything and make sure the wedding plans
re going the way you both want them to.
M Stay healthy. Get enough sleep, eat right and exercise. Avoid outside stimulators like al-
ohol, drugs, caffeine, nicotine and sugar.
Take a breather when necessary When feeling stressed, practiceesome relaxation or med-
tation exercises or go for a walk. Don't be afraid to talk to others about how you are feeling.
Pamper yourself. Go to the movies, read a book. take a bubble bath or spend a day at the
spa.
l* Keep your activities in check. It's only nattual for others to be excited for you and want to
get together to celebrate but don't overextend yourself with too many social obligations. If you
don't have time to get together, let others know that. Yotu- friends will understand that you are
busy:
S With so much emphasis put on the wedding, it can be easy to forget that the event is just the
beginning of your marriage. Your wedding will be over within a matter of hours and then the
real work will begin on creating a long, successful marriage. If your wedding isn't perfect, it's
not the end of the world. In fact it, it might make it more memorable, so go with the flow, as
they say. Don't let things get to you and keep your stress under control.

Tno LES Faculty Join International


Group At Lowell Mills


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Dating back to its founding in 1814, Lowell Mills, lo-
cated in Lowell, Massachusetts, has been a center of in-
dustrial and political revolution. This notoriety came
in large part from its largely female workforce. In fact,
The Lowell female textile workers wrote and published-
several literary magazines, including the Lowell Offer-
ing, which featured essays, poetry and fiction written by
the workers, including topics on, early labor reform
through legislative petitions, farming labor organiza-
tions, contributing essays and articles to a pro-labor
newspaper titled the Voice of Industry and protesting
through "turn-outs" or strikes.
In'years since, the mill and historic monument has


Response To Intervent
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Dr. Pearl Curry has been working to improve the
mind and spirit of students in Madison County for
decades. A true crusader who believes every child can
excel with the right support, Curry has made it a prac-
tice to deliver individual solutions to unique student
challenges throughout her tenure as instructor, and
now as the Response to .Intervention Specialist, for
Madison County Central School.
Response to Intervention (Rtl) is "the practice of
providing high quality instruction/intervention
matched to student needs and using established learn-
ing rates over time and level of performance to make
important educational decisions. It is a process where
at-risk students are provided increasing levels of inter-
vention prior to consideration for special education."
Although this description may seem somewhat
broad, there is a key number that administrators are
looking to reduce driving the program, that being the
high percentage of minority students currently in spe-
Scial education. The Florida Department of Education.
and the Southern Regional Education Board believe the
numbers are, statistically out-of-bounds and can be ef-
fectively improved by the Response to Intervention pro-
gram.
"The Response to Intervention Program is.designed
to target students in the bottom 25 percent where social
and economic challenges are often overwhelming. At-
risk students can be helped with solutions designed ac-
cording to his or her specific situation. The RtI pro-
gram reaches out to those children and their families to
make sure they get a quality education as well," Curry
explained.
No county in Florida met Adequate Yearly Progress
(AYP) last year. This fact isn't publicized much because-
there are so many other measures that determine pro-
gram formation and funding as well.. And while that
may imply that the scoring model for AYP should be re-
visited, the bright side is that programs like RtI and oth-
ers targeting those students with higher needs continue
to be funded, because this county, like those others, did-
n't meet AYP
In contrast, there is no amount of funding that can
replace the value of dedicated professionals like Curry,
a complement that she shares with a host of others.
First, she shared a quote by Jim Tucker, another cru-
sader in the crowd who stated, "Every student needs
something special in education BUT not every student
needs special education."
Additional members of the School-Based RtI Team
include: Davis Barclay, Valarie Thompson, Lynn Sapp,
Paula Ginn, Demetria Phillips, Amy Barfield; Missy
Melvin, Debbie Tuckey, Daphne Brooks, Sybil Day, Lori

become a place for worldwide visitors to learn about the
industrial city's unique and timeless benefits, Now, two'
centuries later, the Tsongas Industrial Center's Nation-
al Endowment for the Humanities Summer Program
brought together 135 teachers from the United States,
China and India to educate them in the hopes they will
share what they learn with others.
Among those who attended this recent tour of Low-
ell Mills were Kathy McCollum and Vickie Sherrard,
both faculty members at Lee Elementary School. Ac-
cording to organizers, these gatherings promote ideas
for underdeveloped nations, as well as provide knowl-
edge of a rich history that is too often overlooked.

Be Aware of 'Variables" Wheh
Creating Investment Strategy
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones'
In almost any endeavor you can think of, your success
depends on a number of different factors And the same is true
of investing. You can create a strategy to help you achieve your
long-term goals, such as a comfortable retirement, but your
results will depend a great deal. on how you adjust some key
I'vartables." . .. '
What are some of these variables? Consider the following:
** Retirement age Clearly, the age-at which you plan
to retire can have a big impact on your savings and investment
strategies. If you want to retire early, you will likely need to
accumulate more financial resources than if you were to work
well into your sixties. To build these additional resources, you
might have to invest more aggressively that is, include more
"growth" vehicles in your portfolio during your working
years.
SLifestyle We all have different thoughts on the "ideal"
retirement and these differences affect our investment strate-
gies. For example, if you plan on spending your retirement
traveling, around the world, you'll likely need to accumulate
more money than your neighbors, who plan on sticking close
to home and pursuing inexpensive hobbies. Therefore, you.
may need to achieve moregrowth from your investments than
your neighbors need from theirs.
*Inflation If you're trying to calculate type of perform-
ance you might need from your investments to reach your
goals, you should consider your "real" rate of return that is,
the return you get after inflation. If we experienced an annual
inflation rate.of three percent, you would lose about half of your
purchasing power after 25 years. To stay ahead of inflation,
you'll need to include some growth-oriented investments in
your portfolio.
Life expectancy Obviously, you can't say exactly-how
long you're going to live. Still, if you consideryour family's his-
tory of longevity and your own level of health, you can proba-
bly make an educated guess. If you think it's entirely possible
that you could spend two on three decades in retirement, as,
many people do, then you'll need to plan carefully so that you.
don't outline your resources. This may mean that, during your
retirement years, you'll need to structure your investment port-
folio to provide you with both growth and income opportunities.
STaxes Many people assume that their tax burden will
decrease significantly when. they retire, but that's not always.
the case. Income from a variety of sources, such as retirement
plans and individual investments, is going to be taxable when
you retire, so you'll need to have the money available to pay
these taxes.
Health care-- Health care costs continue to rise. When
you retire, you become eligible for Medicare, but this won't
cover all your costs. So, as you save and invest for the future,
.you may want to factor in the need to have sufficient liquid
resources to cover your doctors' visits, prescriptions and other
health care expenses.
As you move ahead with your investment strategies, you
may want to consult with a financial advisor someone who
can look at these factors and help you create a "big picture"
solution that's right for your needs. But no matter how you pro-
ceed, don't wait too long to get started-- because life, with all
its variables, has a way of moving quickly.

Cowboys "Rough Ride" Arlington In Season Opener


By.Michael Curtis ,
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The team managers'
won't need to take the
Clorox off the shelf to
clean the new Under Ar-
mour uniforms after the
Cowboys gun downed the
Apaches of Arlington
Country Day last Friday
night. Not only did the ma-
roon and silver avoid grass
stains as they streaked to
victory the 54-0 game of
Cowboys and.Indians actu-


ally looked closer on the
scoreboard than it did on
the field.
From the first hit dealt
out by Gus Williams on the
opening kickoff, the Madi-
son County defense and
special teams kept the
Apaches deep in their own
territory all night.- First
downs were a foreign lan-
guage to Arlington in a
game that had no resem-
blance to the season open-
er that was planned

was cancelled at the last
moment due to Hurricane

The voice of the Cow-
boys, John Bullard,
thanked sponsors and wel-
comed fans back for the
news season that featured
old faces and new. There
was one thing that definite-
ly had not changed, howev-
er, and that is the champi-
onship tradition that led
the Cowboys to the 2A
State Championship last
year.
The Cowboys' defense
displayed its dominance on
the first set of downs, with
Arlington starting a tradi-
tion of three-and-out that
lasted all night. The of-
ferinse then flexed their

running in for a touch-
down on the very first dri-
ve.
The remainder of -the
first quarter was all Madi-
son County Following an
early safety to take the
score to 9-0, on the next set
of downs,. Chris Thomp-
son, got his first rushing
touchdown of the season,
making the score 16-0 at
the end of the first.
The second quarter
saw more than its fair
share of penalties, but the
Cowboys aggressive play
continued to yield divi-
dends. Corey Akins show-
cased his speed and talent
with a 60-yard run that
drove the score to 2b-0, fol-
lowed by a 17-yard run that
brought the Cowboys to a
30-point lead. Then. with a
minute to go in the quarter,
Chriis Thompson got his
second touchdown of the
evening. Unfortunately for
the Apaches, the scoring
wasn't done, as Bladen
Gudz added three points
with a 29-yard field goal
with only seconds remain-
.ing, giving the Cowboys a


40-0 lead going into the
half.,
During halftime, the
crowd was treated to a
spicy. Latin-American
arrangement, followed by a
few more traditional
pieces. The Vaquero
Guard, under the direction
of Band Leader Geoff Hill,
had been showcased
briefly prior to the game
where First Trumpet,
Travis Sheppard, opened
the band with the National
Anthem.
As the second half got
underway, Head Coach
Frankie Carroll fulfilled
his pre-game commitment
to get some quality playing
time for the. backup play-
ers. And although the of-
fense didn't add any points
during the third quarter,
the defense was still very
stingy with yardage,;giving
up only a few and absolute-
ly nothing in scoring posi-
tion.
The scoring attack re-
sumed in the fourth quar-
ter with a short run by
Willie McKnight that
brought the score to 47-0.
Then, with four min-
utes left on the clock, Jor-

game. When'the final whis-

played Madison County
Cowboys 54, Visitors 0.
The offensive player of
the week was Kelvin Sin-
gletary and the defensive
player of the week was
Cortez Akins. In the end
though, all players shared
in" the victory, leaving
coaches and fans with the
belief that a repeat is pos-
sible, although sights will
only be set as far as the
away game with Suwannee
County on September 26.
"We hated to miss the
game with Independence.
The players were ready and
they came out excited. We
had a few too many penal-
ties, but overall the execu-
tion-was good. As far.as a
.repeat, we'll take it one
game at a time. We also
want to say "Good Game"
to the players and coaches
of Arlington Country Day"
Carroll noted.
