Russian Judges Enjoy


Taste Of Madison County


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A delegation of five high-ranking
Russian judges visited Lake City on Sep-
tember 16 as part of the Sister City Pro-
gram of Gainesville. In a working ex-
change with Third Judicial Circuit Chief
Judge, E. VernonDouglas, the five feder-
al Russian jurists shared arid received
advice on several topics while sitting in
on a full day of actual cases.
The.visiting judges included: Chief
Justice Leonid Ivanovich Egorov, Mari-
na Valeryevna Kozhemyakina, Tatyana
Niklayevna Kalmykova, Larisa Niko-
layevna Galkina and Nicolay Borisovich
Gudushin, .all of the Court of the
Arkhangelsk region.
In addition to learning and teaching


on topics of jurisprudence, the judges
took a moment to enjoy a taste of Madi-
son County, thanks to chef Jimmy Lyons
of Lee, who was requested personally by
Douglas to host lunch and cook for the
visiting dignitaries.
Madison County Judge Wetzel Blair,
as well as Third Judicial Circuit Judges
Leandra Johnson and Paul Bryan, were
among local legal notables in atten-
dance. In fact, Blair added to Lyons culi-
nary offering by presenting each visiting
judge homemade cane syrup, as well as a
can of homemade boiled peanuts. Then-
to really cap the local culinary experi-
ence, Tommy Greene, the founding pub-
lisher of The Madison County Carrier,
presented each judge a copy of his cook-

The House Passed


An Energy Bill?
Instead of ,the proposed bill for extensive energy de-
velopment, the American Energy Act to develop the full;
range of our country's potential from petroleum
through alternative fuels, the House Energy Bill is de-
signed to generate publicity instead of power. .While
the bill DOES permit states to decide, on drilling off-
shore, drilling must be 50 miles farther out than the
shoreline. Most reserves are closer in than 50 miles to
the shore,.
The bill offers zero solutions to these problems:
needed refinery construction bogged down for 30 years
by red-tape application process; 2.) accessing oil re-
serves in Alaska; 3.) cost assistance for oil-from-shale
process development; 4.) cost assistance to develop ad-
vanced clean coal and coal-to-liquid technology; 4.) no
return of revenues to the states that'DO drill for oil and
gas.
The bill does 1.) effect an energy.cost to American
motorists and consumers estimated at $19 billion;
and 2)it does tax electric power companies which can-
not meet new standards for wind and solar power pro-
duction.
This House bill is not expected to pass the Senate;
but it IS expected to meet the political need to appear to
act on our very grave energy problems.

Substitute Teachers

Need More Money
M. wife is a substitute teacher for a Madison school.
She enjoys what she does, but will soon have to give it
,.up. As financial issues throughout our nation forces us
to tighten our belts, the minimum wage that substitute
teachers receive just isn't enough. As we live on a fixed
income, she feels she needs to look elsewhere to supple-
ment our income. It's a shame that the local schools feel
that the substitute teachers aren't worth more. It no
wonder they can't keep them.

Dear Editor,
In reference to the letter "WOW!!" by Denise, I echo
her enthusiasm about Tyrra Meserve of Greene Pub-
lishing. My wife Rosalyn and I, know Tyrra personally
and I can attest to her writing talents. Tyrra writes
with soul, spirit and compassion. She is a beautiful,
wonderful and bubbly lady In Sarah Palin's acceptance
speech as Senator John McCain's running mate, the
crowd cheered "Sarah, Sal'ah, Sarah" and I am cheering
for "Tyrra, Tyrra, Tyrra".

~Je Che2 O (9CSe
My two daughters LOVED to watch The Lion King
movie. In this movie is the song "The Circle of Life." It ex-
plains how we are all a part of this great circle and we de-
pend upon each other for everything, whether we know it
or not....
It's true. We live, we die. Our bodies go back into th6
ground and help the vegetation, which nourishes the
plants that animals eat. Big animals eat smaller animals
(humulans eat animals.)
Even the "bad" animals have a purpose. Snakes eat
mice and rodents that we don't want around, Spiders eat
bugs and flies that we also don't want around.
So I have to ask, "Exactly what purpose does a Love-
bug have?" I've thought long and hard and I just can't
seem to find a place in the Circle Of Life for a Lovebug.
While writing this column I actually looked up a few
websites on Lovebugs. EVERY website spoke of what
nuisances they are. Some things mentioned were the
facts that they can clog up radiators, can eat the paint off
the cars, obscure vision to a driver, soil clothing by sitting
on them, and .they are also a considerable nuisance to
fresh paint.
So I ask again, "Exactly what purpose does a Lovebug
have?" And, "How do they fit into our circle of life?"
I only found ONE website that actually gave a 'half rea-
son' that they might be good to our ecosystem........
"For. most of the year, lovebugs are beneficial-in that the
larvae (maggots) live in grassy areas and feed on dead veg-
etation within the thatch. This results in not only the even-
tual release of nutrients back into the soil, but also de-
creases excessive thatch which can be detrimental to grass
growth and serve as a protective cover for serious grass
pests."
I don't think I want to accept that. .All I know is that
they are driving me crazy
he good news is that the fall Lovebug season is Au-
gust and September. That means......lovebug sesql-
most over. We have survived another epidemithf vefload
Until next season.....see you around the town.

Last week, we
looked at the Mu-
nich crisis that National
unfolded 70 years
ago. It was and is Security
the classic exam-
ple of appease- Joe Boyles
ment where
mentd where Guest Columnist
world leaders
caved into the de-'
mands of Nazi
dictator Adolph
Hitler and set the world into motion to-
ward world war that would consume the
lives of 50 million people. It was a hor-
rendous miscalculation on the part of
the English and French leaders.
In order to fall into the appeasement
trap that was sprung on British Prime
Minister Neville Chamberlain, you have
to believe that anything ... anything is
preferable to war. You must not stand on
principle or draw a line in the sand
where political retreat is impossible.
Above all, you must trust the word and
promises of your opponent. These were
the classic mistakes of Chamberlain and
then he did the unthinkable sacrifice
the sovereignty of another nation., "After
all," promised Hitler, "I will be totally
satisfied with this agreement and make
no further demands." It took the Nazi
warlord only six months to break that
promise.
Chamberlain made other mistakes at
Munich, but these three were the foun-
dation of his error: avoid war at all costs;
no underlying principles; and misplaced
trust. When it comes to foreign policy,
these are the important lessons that
politicians, statesmen, and diplomats
need to take away from the debacle that
occurred at Munich in the fall of '1938.
What has been our record in similar
circumstances over the intervening sev-
en decades? In June of 1950, the north-
ern half of a divided Korea invaded the
southern half. Since Secretary of State
Dean Acheson had previously declared
South Korea to be outside our zone of in-
terest, it would have been simple to turn .
our backs.' Instead, President Truman
engaged our military to protect the peo-
ple of South Korea. Under the circum-
stances of protecting a fledgling democ-
racy, Truman decided war was worth the
cost. Many lives were lost, but freedom
was preserved. Today's prosperous
South Korea in stark contrast to their'
northern brethren is testament to Tru-
man's resolve.
In October of 1973, when her Arab
neighbors attacked Israel, the United
States came to her rescue with 'an infu-
sion of arms so that the Israelis could
protect themselves. .President Nixon
felt that we could not abandon our de-
mocratic ally. Once the fortunes of war
had reversed in Israel's favor, Secretary


of State Henry
j, .* Kissinger, inter-
Svened 'to help
S protect Egypt's
honor. This ges-
ture helped
pave the way for
the Camp David
Accords during
the Carter Ad-
ministration.
In' 1983,
when Castro decided to spread his revo-
lutionary fervor to other Caribbean is-
lands, President Reagan authorized the
military to. intervene .in: Grenada.
American students at a medical college
and a small democracy were saved.
In August 1990, Iraq invaded neigh-
boring Kuwait, annexing important oil
fields and destroying the ruling family.
President George H. W. Bush said, "this
aggression will not stand," and put to-
gether a huge coalition of allies to dri-
ve Saddam Hussein's army out of
Kuwait and back into Iraq. :Unfortu-
nately we did not offer sufficient pro-
tection to Saddam's opposition (Shia in
the south and Khurds in the north)
which gave him free reign to engage in
genocide that killed about one-third of
a million political.dissidents!. The first
Gulf' War was very expensive but not
nearly as expensive had Bush 41 not
stood by his principles and decided to
intervene.
Today's threats to international sta-
bility are North Korea and Iran. The
recent Russian intrusion into Georgia
must also be considered. The Bush Ad-
ministration has been criticized for not
engaging in direct, unilateral talks
with the regimes in North Korea and
Iran about nuclear proliferation. Wary
of the mistakes that Chamberlain made
in 1938 by unilaterally negotiating with
Hitler, Bush has refused in both cases;
relying instead on diplomatic pressure
and regional negotiations. In the case
of Georgia, Bush is assisting the tiny
democracy and isolating Russia and
Putin among 'the world community
While we will not go to war over Geor-
gia, we are doing a credible jOb of back-
ing them and preserving democracy.
During the presidential primaries,
Barack. Obama said in debate that he
would unilaterally negotiate with
Iran's Islamic Revolutionary leaders
without preconditions. He was roundly
criticized for that statement for good
reason Chamberlain fell into the same
trap in 1938. The British prime minis-
ter allowed himself to be sucked into
Hitler's lair and rolled. Obama's poor
understanding of history and its im-
portant lessons are dangerous. They
were dangerous in 1938, and they are
equally dangerous today

residents of Broward
County Ten of these indi-

distributing crack cocaine
in the City of Fort Laud-

with a firearms offense.
These individuals are
members of the self-styled
"Graveyard Boyz" organi-

According to the In-
dictment, ten of the defen-
dants conspired with each
other to possess with in-
tent to distribute .fifty
grams or more of crack co-
caine during a six-month
period. Each of them al-
legedly sold varying quan-
tities of crack cocaine in,
and around three resi-
dences in the City of Fort

crack cocaine sales oc-
curred near Joseph C.

Consider Consolidating'
Retirement Assets
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
By the time you retire, you'll probably have accumu-
lated money in a variety of retirement-savings vehicles
at a variety of locations an IRA here, a 401(k) there
and so on. At first glance, that may sound all right, but
there are some sound reasons why you might want to
consolidate your retirement accounts to one provider.
Here are some of the key benefits you can receive from
this type of consolidation:
*You'll keep better track of your assets. Like most
people, you probably think that you will never lose track
of any of the money you've saved for retirement. But
many equally well-meaning people do misplace or forget
about savings and investments. In fact, the National
Registry of Unclaimed Retirement Benefits lists more
than 50,000 individuals who are owed benefits from
401(k)s, profit-sharing plans and IRAs and either can't
be reached or don't respond to inquiries. But if you hold
all your retirement accounts in one place, you are prob-
ably far less likely to "misplace" them' than if you kept
them with several financial institutions.
You'll have less trouble calculating minimum distri-
butions. Once you reach age 70 V/2, you'll need to take
distributions from your 401(k) and traditional IRA.,(This
requirement does not apply to a Roth IRA.) It's not par-
ticularly difficult to calculate the amount of a distribution
from a single IRA or 401(k), but if you hold several
accounts, it could get a bit tricky. For example, if you
have multiple IRAs, you'll need to add them together,
then divide the total balance by the IRS' life expectancy
numbers for someone your age. If you have several
401(k)s, you'll need to calculatethe required minimum
distribution for each 401(k) separately, using the same
life expectancy figures as you would with an IRA.
Clearly, if you held a mix of these accounts at different
places, you'd have to do a bit of detective work and a lot
of number crunching to arrive at your required minimum
distributions.
*You could save money. If you held accounts at sev-
eral locations, you could be paying a number of.fees and
maintenance charges. Individually, each fee or charge
may not seem like much, but they can add up. By con-
solidating your accounts to one provider, you might be
able to save some money.
You can create a unified strategy. To achieve the
retirement lifestyle you've envisioned, you will need to
create a sufficient income stream, drawing from all your
retirement accounts. Among other things, you'll need to
know how much you can afford to withdraw each year,
how you can stay ahead of inflation and how best to con-
trol your investment-related taxes. You'll find it far easier
to accomplish these goals if you;have a single, unified
investment strategy and it will be far easier to devel-
op such a strategy if you have all your retirement
accounts at one place, possibly under the guidance of a
single financial advisor.
So, to sum up: The more retirement savings vehicles
you own, the better but when it comes to the number
of institutions holding these accounts, you might just
want to stop at one.

Leader of Mexican Cocaine Cartel

Extradited To The United States From

Mexico On Narcotics Trafficking Charges
JOHN P GILBRIDE, the Special Agent in Charge of
the Drug Enforcement Administration's New York Field
Division, MICHAEL J. GARCIA, the United States At-
torney for theSouthern District of New York and PE-
TER J. SMITH, Special Agent-in-Charge of the New York
Office of the Department of Homeland Security's U.S.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement ("ICE") an-
nounced last night the extradition of SANTIAGO
CHAVEZ-AYON from Mexico to the United States.
CHAVEZ-AYON, a leader of a cocaine cartel based in
Sinaloa, Mexico, faces narcotics trafficking charges in
the Southern District of New York. Mexican authorities,
pursuant to a request for a provisional arrest from the
United States, arrested CHAVEZ-AYON in Sinaloa, Mex-
ico on August 12, 2005. CHAVEZ-AYON was extradited
from Mexico last night, and will be arraigned today in
Manhattan federal court.
"Santiago Chavez-Ayon has been charged for the
shipment of hundreds of kilos of cocaine into Ameri-
can neighborhoods," said DEA Special Agent-in-Charge
JOHN P GILBRIDE. "He faces the consequence of his
criminal activity: extradition to the United States. DEA
stands firmly with our local and international law en-
forcement partners in this battle against drug traffick-
ers. We will continue to identify those individuals who
make millions of dollars from illegal narcotic ship-
ments into the United States and put them out of busi-
ness."
According to a previously-unsealed Indictment in
this case and evidence presented at the 2005 trial of two
of CHAVEZ-AYON's co-conspirators, JAIME CHAVEZ
and ANASTACIO ACOSTA-FELIX:, CHAVEZ-AYON was
a leader of the cartel in Sinaloa, Mexico; and from at
least July 2002 until at least April 2003, he conspired
with at least 14 other individuals to distribute hundreds
of kilograms of cocaine in the United States. CHAVE-
ZAYON directly supervised JAIME CHAVEZ, the United
States-based leader of this organization, and coordinat-
ed the shipment and transportation of this cocaine to
the United States, which was then distributed in Los An-
geles, Chicago and New York. During court-authorized
wire interceptions, CHAVEZ-AYON and JAIME
CHAVEZ were intercepted discussing shipments of co-
caine, and CHAVEZ-AYON's fears that losses of drugs
and drug proceeds would get CHAVEZ-AYON.killed.
This extradition is the result of a joint investigation
involving the United States Attorney's Office, the New
York Drug Enforcement Task Force Group T-21 which
consists 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
outstanding investigative work of the DEA and ICE. As-
sistance regarding the extradition was provided by the
Criminal Division's Office of International Affairs.
GARCIA stated: "The extradition of this leader of a
Mexican cocaine cartel is the latest example of our con-
tinuing cooperation with our law enforcement partners
in Mexico to ensure that cartel 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 enforcement part-
ners," said PETER J. SMITH, Special Agent-in-Charge of
the Office of Investigation for ICE in New York. Drug
smuggling is a serious crime and ICE will use all of its
investigative resources to keep illegal drugs off our
streets."
If convicted, CHAVEZ-AYON faces a maximum sen-.
tence of life in prison and a mandatory minimum sen-
tence of 10 years in prison. However, pursuant to an ex-
tradition treaty with Mexico, the United States has pro-
vided 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 mere-
ly accusations, and the defendant is presumed innocent
unless and until proven guilty
Assistant United States Attorneys ANIRUDH
BANSAL and ERIC SNYDER are in charge of the prose-
cution.

'Nice People Dancing' Continues At Opera House


Opening night, Friday,
of the Opera House Stage
Company's fall production
of Nice People Dancing to
Good Country Music drew
an appreciative audience,
which enjoyed the Texas
style dinner before the
show, catered by Carrie
Ann & Co.
The show continues
Friday and Saturday, Sept.
26,27, with dinner at 7 p.m.
and the show at 8 p.m.
Despite the title, this
play is not a musical,
though snatches of coun-
try songs are woven
throughout. It is..a comedy,


which "draws on the red-
neck stereotype for its hu-
mor, yet also contains ac-
curate observations of
life, and romance, that go
beyond mere comedy
With a cast of only five
characters, as opposed to
the larger casts seen at
the House more frequent-
ly, it falls to these charac-
ters to bring the play to
life, which they do with
perfection.
In addition to the well
chosen cast, under the di-
rection of Colin Rolfe and
Jack Williams, the set de-
signers and all those be-


hind the scenes, help add
authenticity.
Audiences will find ta-
bles containing a six pack
of Lone Star Beer, placed
on oversized red ban-
danas, as the centerpieces.
Sold only in Texas, the
beer was purchased by
Opera House Director Jan
Rickey and her husband
Kent, when they passed
through Texas while on
vacation, recently
Perhaps most notable,
set wise, is the "real" truck
that serves as a major
prop. Williams relates that
the authentic truck body


was created in
Thomasville in a manner
that allowed it to be
hauled up the stairs to the
theatre and assembled on
stage.
The play opens with
Rich. Clifford, as Jim
Stools, working on his
truck, which doesn't seem
to want to start. Dressed in
redneck style, Clifford
even has the obligatory
barbed wire tattoos (fake)
around both biceps and
around one wrist.
As he works on the
truck, he never misses a
chance to curse it, and
give it a good whack with
whatever tool he has
handy When the truck
threatens to go up in
smoke, after the abuse it
suffered, it is fortunate a
fire extinguisher is handy
Jon Taylor, as Roy
Manual, observes, as Clif-
ford works on his truck.
He is an honest, if simple
fellow, from the bar. He
wants Clifford to intro-
duce him to Kuder, and
doesn't care if she is or
was a nun or not. Clifford
-tries to explain to Taylor
what love does to a man,
but his words fall on deaf
ears.
Taylor was seen most
recently at the Opera
House in "Alibis" as De-
tective Solvedd. He has
performed in some11 local
productions and has the
ability to adapt to whatev-
er the role demands.
In his first production
with the Opera House
Stage Company, Andrew
Ashburn, plays Jason/Jay
Bob, 15-year-old nephew of


Eve (Eva June) Wilfong.
Ashburn has studied the
violin and danced with the
Pas de Vie Ballet Troupe,
in Tallahassee. No doubt
his studies will carry him
far on stage, should he
choose that path.
In a role very different
from her usual glamorous
parts, Mellissa Kuder, as
urious compulsion to yell
obscenities at the wrong
moment, and at times to
even barks like a dog. She
spontaneously gives the
audience a sampling of
her "affliction."
After leaving the con-
vent, she returns home
and her aunt, Lisa Rea-
soner, as Eve (Eva June)
Wilfong, who feels obligat-
ed to give her niece the
benefit of her experience
with men, before allowing
her to venture back into
the mad modern country
world.
What follows is not
just, comic, but well ob-
served, romantic, and af-
fecting as well. Reasoner
wears an outfit that allow's
Sheer to -highlight her lower
back with a fake tattoo,


which adds authenticity
to her character.
It is difficult to recall a
role Reasoner has not un-
dertaken in the Opera
House Stage Company
Whatever the role, she
gives her all, which makes
her a favorite of audi-
ences.
In conclusion, kudos
to all on stage and behind
the scenes. This is a play
suitable for all, which per-
haps says more by what it
does not say, and provides
food for thought.

MONEY & FINANCE


Real Estate Investment


Clubs Offer (
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Many times good real estate invest-
ments pop up that are simply too expen-
sive for the average investor giving rise to
real estate investment clubs. .Forobvious .
reasons, the numbers -of clubs being
formed fell off considerably from its peak
during the real estate boom earlier this
decade, but with prices adjusting and bor- .
rowing rates still low, some are looking
for friendly partners again.
If one is interested in forming or joining a real estate invest-
ment club, the following suggestions are offered to promote suc-,
cess.
(1) Make sure the people attending the investment club are ac-



Need Financing?


Opportunities
tually investors. Sometimes one can attend a club where every-
one attending, except for a few people, are all wannabes. I be-
longed to a writer's club like this once. It
was exciting for about two meetings.
That's about how long it took me to realize
I was the most experience writer there. I
_- needed a club' of strictly published au-
thors and writers to learn from. Instead,
each,meeting would end with people sur-
rounding me. One will want a club full of
bona fide investors who hold property and
are always on the search for new investment opportunities.
S(2) Investigate whether the club is there to inform on invest-
ing, or inform on books and tapes about investing. Some clubs
are nothing more than a forum for the organizer to sell his or her
programs for hundreds of dollars a pop. You only get a taste of
investing tips, not the real deal.
(3) Watch out for sharks. It's sad to admit, but there are some
"investors" in who believe they should never have to use their
own money to get into a transaction. Instead, they prey on those
who are excited and naive about the real estate investment
process, but who may have some cash set aside to begin invest-
ing.
The line goes something like this: "I'll find the deal, we'll use
your investment cash, then we'll split the proceeds 50/50. Be-
sides, you wouldn't find the deal without me and I'm going to
guide you through the process." The challenge with this sce-
nario is that you lose half the profit from the rental income, as
well.
This scenario isn't always a bad approach, however, there are
plenty of experienced investors who would be willing to share
their expertise with you without taking part of your first trans-
action. So be careful in working with anyone, or any group, not
known and proven, at least in some verifiable capacity related to
the investment being considered.

Increasingly, busy brides are saying "I do" to any
services that help save time when planning the big day
Between juggling work, travel and social and family
life, many brides can't budget time for unnecessary de-
lays but, fortunately, online bridal registries and
travel sites are helping them get everything
done on time.
Responding to a growing trend of com-
ptter-savvy wedding planners, hotel
sites-through sophisticated online book-
ing features-are also making it easier to
take control of wedding planning. It's
all about convenience, whether you're
a night owl or an early bird.
The days of leaving messages for
the hotel sales manager and waiting for
callbacks to help book your event space
and guest room block are over.. :
No waiting for a guarantee on a func-
tion room, no waiting to reserve a block of
rooms, and no waiting to find out who in your
wedding party and other special guests have re-
served their hotel rooms as the big day approaches.
Today, wedding planning can take place 24 hours a
day, seven days a week. With resources available online
at your fingertips-including accessing wedding check-
lists, reserving hotel event space and guest rooms, man-
aging your own out-of-town hotel guest list and, yes, de-
signing your own personalized Web page for guest reser-
vations, all on one site-you can take control of your own
planning, creatively and instantaneously, in most cases.

HEALTH & NUTRITION


Support Is Important For Success Of


Marrow And Cord
Twenty years ago, options for patients diagnosed with
leukemia or lymphoma were limited and survival rates were
low. One treatment that has shown tremendous scientific ad-
vancement is bone marrow and cord blood transplantation us-
ing an unrelated donor.
Advances in transplant science have improved outcomes
and have made transplant a viable treatment option for more
patients' and a wider range of diseases. Because of the im-
proving outcomes, transplantation may offer the highest like-
lihood of survival for a growing number of patients. More
than 70 diseases, including leukemia and lymphoma, are treat-
ed with transplant.
While a transplant may cure the disease, transplant recip-
ients often need long-term follow-up care.after they return
home. Survival rates and quality of life have.increased be-
cause of a greater understanding of the needs in this patient
population.
The National Marrow Donor Program's (NMDP) Office of
Patient Advocacy (OPA) develops programs and resources to
support the needs of transplant recipients from diagnosis
through survivorship. Today the NMDP's OPA is leading a
new initiative to support patients and their physicians in pro-
viding care following transplant. A partnership with 20 pa-
tient-focused organizations, including the Lance Armstrong
Foundation, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Na-
tional Coalition for Cancer Survivorship, will increase the
awareness and'education needed to care for this patient popu-
lation.
Through a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC), the NMDP's OPA and its.partners will de-
velop a comprehensive list of transplant survivor resources,
conduct provider training on transplant survivor issues and
create comprehensive care plan guidelines for providers.
The NMDP recently described how this kind of support


Blood Transplants
proved crucial to 24-year-old Nicki Kremer. She needed a bone
marrow transplant to survive an aggressive form of leukemia.
Fortunately a matched marrow donor was found on the
NMDP Registry and she received a life-saving transplant in
2005.
Now a three-year cancer survivor, Kremer is committed to
helping other survivors like her While launching her career
as an interior designer, Kremer is also giving back to help oth-
ers like her. At the center where she was treated, she is a pa-
tient advocateto help shape services to better support patients
during their treatment and recovery
In addition to the resources offered by organizations such as
the NMDP community support can be a powerful tool to help
survivors overcome posttreatment challenges. Its easy to help
without being intrusive:
*Strike a note of support. You may never know the incredi-
ble impact a card or a phone call can have on a survivor's spirits.
*Volunteer your time. There are many organizations, both
locally and nationally that support survivors. These include the
National Marrow Donor Program, Lance Armstrong Founda-
tion and The Wellness Community as well as local chapters of
the American Cancer Society and The Leukemia & Lymphoma
Society Volunteers are always needed at these and many other
organizations.
*Share stories. Visit http://foundation.mar-row.org/Life-
Journeys and create an NMDP LifeJoumeys tribute page to
share your story honor or memorialize a loved one, recognize an
accomplishment or milestone or just to saythank you.
*Join the fight for other'survivors. Even if you aren't close to
a cancer patient in your community you can help others.
To learn more or register to be a marrow donor, visit the Na-
tional Marrow Donor Program online at wwwmarro-
w.org/join.


Fall Into Fitness: Hot Tips To Stay


Healthy As Temperatures Cool


Whether you've been
active all summer or are
getting motivated to live a
healthier lifestyle, fall is an
excellent time to start a fit-
ness program so you can
continue the good habits
into the holiday season and
the winter months. Fall
also brings a healthy har-
vest of flavors -to grocery
store shelves and is a great
time to try nutritious sea-
sonal fruits and vegetables.,
Here are some tips that
will help make your fall
season healthy and active
for the whole family:
Commit to a commu-
nity event. Many cities.
hold their annual fun runs,
charity walks and competi-
tive races likemarathons
in the cooler fall months.
Sign up with your family
or friends; it will give you a
goal to work toward and
you'll feel a real sense of
accomplishment when you
cross the finish line.


SPut one foot in front of
the other. Walking is one of
the most enjoyable fall ac-
tivities for good reason--
you can do it anywhere and
the weather will keep you
cool. 'Discover local forest'
preserve paths and park
trails and take in some new
scenery, whether you're.
walking, running or even
biking.
Taste fall's healthy
harvest. Many unique veg-
etables are harvested in
the fall, making it the per-
fect time to introduce these
new flavors to your meals.
Leafy greens, like spinach,
Swiss chard and kale are
best in the fall.
Choose an indoor
grill. Indoor grilling pro-
vides simple, fast and
healthier cooking all year
long. On colder days or*
days with inclement
weather, contact grills
such as the new George
Foreman G-Broil Grill


make it possible to cook
healthier, flavorful dinners
in minutes. This new grill
drains fat away from food
and has a special floating
hinge, that locks to allow
for broiling so you can put
gourmet touches on grilled
meats or vegetables. Try,
grilling pears and sprini-'
kling with a bit of cinna-
mon for a tasty guilt-free
treat.
Gain support. The
Web has an overwhelming
amount of fitness and. nu-
trition information. Find a
few favorite sites, such as
the home pages for your fa-
vorite health and fitness
magazines, or interactive
sites like www.knockout-
thefat.com. At this site, you
.can follow four individuals
as they endeavor to lose
weight with assistance
from expert trainers and
healthy cooking gadgets.
Weigh in with your own
personal tips and you could


win prizes!
Watching what you eat
this fall doesn't mean you
have to sacrifice taste or
flavor. Here's a delicious,
low-calorie recipe that can
be prepared any season on
an indoor contact grill,
such as a George Foreman
G-Broil Grill.

Checking Up


On Your Health


Insurance
About 60 percent of Americans have health insur-
ance through an employer, according to the latest num-
bers from the U.S..Census Bureau..
While that insimuance often provides for a number of
basic health needs, experts say it's important to know
just how much coverage you have, because not knowing
could cost you.
For instance, in many cases, only a fraction of the
cost associated with prosthetic devices (which are be-
coming more common as the population ages and dia-
betes rates increase) is covered.
It was an insurance gap that surprised Brian
Hansen, a contractor to the EPA living in New Jersey,
who needed a prosthetic device after sustaining an in-
jury and infection that resulted in his leg being ampu-
tated. His insurance company provided a maximunn al-
lowance of only $1.000 with a $200 deductible for the de-
vice, which costs upwards of $30.000.
According to the American Orthotic & Prosthetic
Association (AOPA). more than 3.000 patient care facili-
ties provide orthotic and prosthetic services and there
are more than 185,000 new amputations performed each
year in the U.S. More than 80,000 of those are in some
way related to diabetes.
"People who have had an amputation need prosthet-
ics, as well as rehabilitation that can cost as much as
$200 per session." explains Anita Liberman-Lampear,
Member of AOPA's Board of Directors and from the Uni-
versity of Michigan Orthotics and Prosthetics Center.
"But right now, most private insurance just isn't cover-
ing it. As a result, people are having to find other meth-
ods of covering the costs."
In the case of Hansen. those methods included
switching to higher-cost private coverage (until he could
no longer afford to pay the monthly premiums) and re-
lying on financial help from Social Security--a move he's
not alone ii making.
In one year alone, Medicare approved payment for
nearly 2.5 million prosthetic codes that accounted for
more than $628 million in Medicare expenditures. It's be-
lieved that many people requiring the Medicare pay-
ments were not covered by their private insurance
providers.
"I've worked all my life and always assumed that my
health insurance would provide the coverage I needed."
says Hansen. "I never thought I'd have to rely on
Medicare."
AOPA has joined with others calling for private in-
surance to provide adequate coverage for patients re-
quiring ongoing orthotic and prosthetic care. To learn

Question: My child's baby tooth is so
loose. It will not come out because the
permanent tooth is coming in behind the
baby tooth. Will this baby tooth hanging
on damage my child's permanent tooth?


Answer: Great question. Logically, so
many parents worry about damage to the
permanent teeth. It seems like my wife
had me'doing weekly loose tooth exams
when I got home in. the evenings for a
while. Fortunately, we just don't see
damage to the permanent teeth. I have
seen a lot of trauma to baby teeth over
the years and the permanent teeth are
healthy underneath in spite of every-
thing.

There can be a problem when baby teeth
are pulled early due to severe tooth
decay. The permanent teeth loose their
alignment and can be crowded, So take
care of baby teeth and avoid premature
extractions.

Caring For Your Dog:

The Top Ten Essentials


Your dog gives you a
lifetime of uncondition-
al love, loyalty, and
friendship. In return,
she counts on you to
provide her with food.
water, safe shelter, regu-
lar veterinary care. ex-
ercise, companionship,
and more. Take care of
these ten essentials, and
you'll be guaranteed to
develop a rewarding re-
lationship with your ca-
nine companion.
Outfit your dog
with a collar and ID tag
that includes your
name, address, and tele-
phone number.
Follow local laws
for licensing your dog
and


vaccinating him for ra-
bies. Check with your
local animal shelter or
humane society for in-
formation regarding le-
gal requirements.
where to obtain tags,
and where to have your
pet vaccinated.
Follow this simple
rule-off property, on
leash. Even a dog with a
valid license, rabies tag,
and ID tag should not be
allowed to roam outside
of your home or fenced
yard. Give your dog
proper shelter. A fenced
yard with a doghouse is
a bonus, especially for
large and active dogs;

should never be left
outside alone or for ex-
tended periods of time.
Take your dog
to the veterinarian for
regular check-ups.
Spay or neuter
your dog. Dogs who
have this routine
surgery tend to live
longer, be healthier.
and have fewer behav-
ior problems (e.g., bit-
ing, running away).
Give your pooch a
nutritionally balanced
diet, including con-
stant access to fresh
water.
Enroll your dog in
a training class. Posi-
tive training will allow
you to control your
companion's behavior
safely and humanely,
and -the experience of-
fers a terrific opportu-
nity to enhance the
bond you share with
your dog.
Give your dog
enough exercise to
keep him physically fit
(but not exhausted).
Be loyal to and pa-
tient with your faithful
companion. Make 'sure
the expectations you
have of your dog are
reasonable and remem-
ber that the vast major-
ity of behavior prob-
lems can be solved.


- 2. 200&


a The most unselfish living thing in the world is your dog.
If you are in danger, your dog needs only to hear your cry of
Distress to rush to your aid. without thought of his own life,
fearless of guns and enemies.
The most patient thing in the world is your dog, waiting
for hours at the top of the stairs to hear the sound of your
footsteps, never complaining however late youth may be.
%v l The most grateful thing in the world is your dog. What-
ever you'give him, whatever you do for him, he never is
]" guilty of ingratitude. To him you are the most powerful per-
sonage in the world and beyond censure: you are your dog's
god; you can do no wrong.
The most friendly thing in the world is your dog. Of all
the animal kingdom, he alone serves man without whip.
without compulsion, glad to be by the side of his master
wherever he may be, whatever he may do. and sad in heart
when his master is away.
The most forgiving thing in the world is your dog. The
bone virtue most humans lack is forgiveness. But your dogA
6 carries no grudge and no spite. Punish him even unde-
servedly, and he comes to you, nudges his moist nose into
your hand, looks up at you with pleading eyes, and wags his
S tail hesitatingly as tho.to say, "Oh. come on, let's be pals
again."
The most loyal thing in the world is your dog. Whether
you come home from Congress or from jail, whether you
have lost your fortune or made a million, whether you re-
turn dressed in fashion's height or in rags, whether you
have been hailed a hero or condemned as criminal, your dog
is waiting for you with a welcoming bark of delight, a wag-
Sging tail and a heart that knows no guile.
The world likes dogs because dogs are nearest to moral a
perfection of all living things.

SCHOOL & EDUCATION



New School Administrators Warmly Welcomed


L... '







SGreene Publishing, Inc. Phot By Michael Curtis, September 15, 2008
Sponsors and organizers for the Welcome Reception held to introduce the four new school administrators, pic-
tured here left to right, are Dorothy Griffin, Shirley Joseph, Gwen Hubbard, VeEtta Hagan, Emily Dickey, Elizabeth
McDonald and Shirley Barfield.
.... ,con l an -hre ...... ,..ld. ,


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc..
On September 15, friends and colleagues of four ad-
ministrators who recently joined the Madison County
School System gathered at the Damascus Missionary
Baptist Church Annex for a Welcome Reception in their
honor. Octavius Tookes welcomed everyone, providing a
warm invocation, followed by a few words or praise from
Madison County School Board Chair VeEtta Hagan.
Gwen Hubbard then introduced the administrators
and their family in attendance, reading a short biogra-
phy on each.
SElizabeth Hodge, who was unfortunately unable to
attend due to an unavoidable schedule conflict, was
nonetheless praised and welcomed as the new Principal


of the Excel School, following the departure and promo-
tion of Maceo Howell, who is now the Principal of
Hamilton County High School.
Valerie King-Thompson was the next guest of honor
introduced. She is now serving as Assistant Principal at
Madison County Central Schpol. In addition to a healthy
resume and a wealth of family and friends, Thompson.is
a sister in Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, which was a big
hit with fellow-sister and now colleague, Shirley
Barfield. In fact, Barfield presented Thompson an AKA
themed basket to mark the occasion. Thompson re-
sponded by sharing a brief motivational antheri that
she created to inspire students. In the end, it had a sim-
ilar impressive impact on those in attendance as well.
Ronnie Williams, also brought on to fill the position
of Assistant Principal at the Central School, was then in-
troduced. Among his credentials are extensive educa-
tional and law enforcement training, including positions
in Pinellas and Gadsden Counties, all of which were per-
formed in'an exemplary manner.
The new Principal of Greenville Elementary School,
Clifford Cooks, was the fourth to be introduced. He, like
his predecessor at GES Principal Mel Roberts, has a suc-
cessful turn-around experience. One of his prior ad-
ministrative roles was with a Title-1 School in Georgia
that was cited as a "Distinguished School," which is a
rare rating that means the school met Adequate Yearly
Progress.

tor received a handsome plant or flower arrangement, as
well as an abundance of handshakes and hugs. The fol-
lowing sponsors were also thanked for making the gath-
ering a success: Regal Women's Club, Sam's Club, Madi-
son County Charmettes, Nu Omega Omega Chapter of
the AKA Sorority and the Iota Alpha Zeta Chapter of the

uary 1, 2007. The assessed value of the newly estab-
lished homestead shall be determined as follows:
1. If the just value of the new homestead is greater

section herein.
2. If the just value of the new homestead is less than
the just value of the prior homestead as of January 1 of
the year in which the prior homestead was abandoned,

to the just value of the new homestead divided by the
just value of the prior homestead and multiplied by the
assessed value of the prior homestead. However, if the
difference between the just value of the new homestead
and the assessed value of the new homestead calculated
pursuant to this sub-subparagraph is greater than
$500,000, the assessed value of the new homestead shall
be increased so that the difference between the just val-
ue and the assessed value equals $500,000. Thereafter,
the homestead shall be assessed as provided in this sub-
section herein.
b. By general law and subject to conditions specified
therein, the Legislature shall provide for application of
this paragraph to property owned by more than one per-
son.
(d) The legislature may, by general law, for assess-
ment purposes and subject to the provisions of this sub-
section, allow counties and municipalities to authorize

adopting the ordinance. The requirements for eligible
properties must be specified by general law.

eral law, provide for a reduction in the assessed value of
homestead property to the extent of any increase in the
assessed value of that property which results from the

er of the property or of the owner's spouse if at least

changed annually on the date of assessment provided
by law; but those changes in assessments shall not ex-
ceed ten percent (10%) of the assessment for the prior
year.

fined by general law, including any change of owner-
ship of a legal entity that owns the property, such prop-
erty shall be assessed at just value as of the next as-
sessment date. Thereafter, such property shall be as-
sessed as provided in this subsection.
(4) Changes, additions, reductions, or improve-
ments to such property shall be assessed as provided for
by general law; however, after the adjustment for any
change, addition, reduction, or improvement, the prop-
erty shall be assessed as provided in this subsection.

Florida Third Circuit and visiting Russian judges, along with friends and several lo-

"The judges were
asked what local favorites
they would like for lunch
and they decided on a bar-
becue of smoked sausage,
chicken and corn on the
cqb. So we set up the grill
at the courthouse and did
it just like they request-

m


ed," Lyons explained, .
Lyons has built an ex-
ceptional reputation in the'
region for his marvelous
menus, having hosted offi-
cial functions and cooked'
for numerous dignitaries
over the years. Lyons is
humble about the com-
mand performance and
very appreciative of the
praise he received froi
both the local and visiting
judges.
While visiting, the
Russian contingency
heard cases regarding do-
mestic violence, divorce
and one case of wrongful
imprisonment. At the end
of the day, each expressed
his or her appreciation for
the experience, suggesting
that their American host
return the favor by visit-
ing Russia in the future:.
In response, Douglas
said he plans to visit the
northern Russian region


where the five judges rule
next July as part of over-
seas travel he has sched-
uled for next summer. It
was noted that the sun
doesn't set at night during
that time of the year and
that polar bears are a reg-
ular sight in the outskirts
of this Arkhangelsk re-
gion, which is located at
the far north of European
Russia.
Before the gathering
,closed, Greene asked visit-
ing judge.Gudushin about
his views on the freedom
of the press. Through an
interpreter Gedushin re-
sponded by saying, "We
view journalists as watch-
dogs of a democratic soci-
ety Sometimes, however,
dog's bark, and other
times, dog's bite."

cate his office in the Madison County Courthouse. This
is the first time the circuit court seat has been in Madi-
son County since 1966 when Hon. Judge Randall Rowe
occupied it.
According to details provided the board in a Special
Assignment Order dated September 16, "Gregory S.
Parker, who was recently elected to replace Peach, has
practiced in nearly every major area of the law, includ-
ing civil, criminal, real property, probate, commercial
litigation, and family law, thus allowing him to immedi-
ately meet the diverse needs of the people of-Madison
County... the people of the Third Judicial Circuit would
best be served by having their judicial officials located
throughout the geographic region."
In his Third Judicial Circuit of Florida Administra-
tive Order No. 2008-016, Chief Judge E. Vernon Douglas
further announced that Investiture ceremonies for Park-
er would be held in the Madison County Courthouse on
Friday, January 16, 2009, at 1:30 p.m.
In consideration of Parker, and generally to address
the current office space limits of the court, the board is
actively looking at ways to accommodate this critical
need. In fact, Circuit Judge Leandra G. Johnson, whose
two-year assignment in Madison will conclude with
Parker's arrival, wrote a letter to Board Chair Alfred
Martin, praising the community and Clerk's Office for
their support while strongly urging the board to add an
additional courtroom. Johnson is slated to move to Lake
City, as Parker will hear the felony cases in Madison
County.
"I'm excited and uplifted to be coming to Madison,
not only because I'll be serving as a trial judge, but be-
cause of the great people. The old friends and the new
ones I've made are incredible and I look forward to be-
coming part of the community," Parker noted.

SCHOOL cont from page 1A
In order to address critical writing requirements
established by last year's district testing, Ryals found a
creative way to make learning fun. Students in fourth
and fifth grade were instructed regarding the method
for writing biographies, everything from gathering
personal and interesting data to writing the actual pa-
per in an organized and entertaining manner.
Three of Ryals students, Kavisa Aikens, DeShoun
Love and LaResha Crumity took .turns reading ex-
cerpts from their respective biographies. One of the
biography subjects. Javaris:Forbes; was also in atten-
dance. .
The show began with Ryals presenting a musical Pow-
erPoint, which fully explained the project. The three
readings followed. In the end, the board, and all at-
tending including this reporter, was very impressed.
Central School Principal Sam Stalnaker, who intro-
duced Ryals' project as one among many in an ingoing
effort to improve student performance, stated his in-
tention to bring other success stories to the board dur-
ing this school year, although he was quick to note that
all the praise should go to the students and instructors.
The new Madison County High School Student
Body, President, Laurie Smith, was also in attendance,
taking the customary place at the end of the board-
