Commissioners To Hear About Road
And Wastewater Infrastructure Projects
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
During the upcoming regular meeting of the Board
of County Commissioners for Madison County, the
board will hear proposals from the top three companies
that have been screened by the County Coordinator's of-,
fice regarding the construction of a lift station to pro-
vide wastewater services to property located on the east
end of Dale Leslie Drive near the Lee interchange. This
project, which is estimated in the range of $750,000, will
be funded with a Community Development Block Grant
(CDBG) that is being facilitated by grant consultant Jim
Parrish who has proven to be an exceptional resource in
this critical country function.
A lift station is exactly what the name implies. In a
water system, which is obviously a critical resource for
commercial and industrial development, fresh water is
made available to a facility using a combination of grav-
ity from towers, elaborate pressure lines and pumps. Re-
moving the wastewater from that same facility, however,
has the additional challenge of starting at ground level
and often running uphill along portions of the line that
runs to the treatment plant. Simply put, it must be lift-
ed there.

In a ceremony as rare as it was wonderful, on October 3, among a room full of fam-
ily, friends and community visitors gathered at the Madison County Courthoduse,
Judge Wetzel Blair performed an unprecedented ceremony that would bring any fa-
ther to tears and any community to immense pride. On this unique occasion in Flori-
da judicial history, Blair not only got the opportunity to see his daughter, Sara Elise
Blair. be sworn in as a member of the Florida Bar Association, but he also had the
honor of being the judge to perform the service.
Elise Blair, a graduate of Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville, grew up
in Madison, a graduate of Madison County High School. Her mother Marilyn Blair,
sister Caroline, and grandparents Sadie Blair, Newton Collins and Betty Collins, as
well as aunts Donna Blair and Diane Howard, joined cousins and dozens.of friends
and community for the awesome ceremony, each looking on with her father's pride
and joy.
State Attorney Jerry M.-Blair of the Third Judicial Circuit concluded the cere-
mony by swearing Elise Blair in as Assistant State Attorney, where she will be work-
ing out of the Perry office. State Attorney Blair then presented her a framed certifi-
cate authorizing and commemorating the event.
The Blair family has been part of the Madison County landscape for generations.
Since being elected as Madison County Judge 32 years ago, Judge Wetzel Blair has
built an exceptional reputation for fairness and justice, safeguarding the community
while never forgetting the human side of the judiciary All agreed that Elise is a fine
example of those same judicial qualities and will certainly continue the Blair legal
heritage for years to come.

Objections

Raised To
Price Of

Courthouse
Expansion


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
During a recent .civic
group meeting, Roy Mill-
iron, a local realtor, voiced
strong opposition to the re-
cent $525,000 courthouse
expansion. He empha-
sized that three separate
appraisals acquired by the
county averaged $200,000
less than the purchase
price, further noting that
the best appraisal, one
that included a narrative
acknowledging the addi-
tional benefits of 'the
building being adjacent to
the Courthouse Annex,
was still over $150,000 low-
er than the purchase price.
Considering these
challenging economic
times, Miffliron suggested
others speak out about the
purchase.
Clerk of the Court Tim
Sanders, who has estab-
lished a conservative repu-
tation for watching the
cookie jar, disagrees with'
the characterization, and
stands firm on his reasons
for promoting the building
so strongly to the commis-
sioners.
"Several years ago,
State Representative Joe
Pickens, who sits on the
Fiscal Council and Judi-
ciary Committee, was
speaking to regional
clerks regarding the
monies the we received as
a "fiscally constrained"
county. In the two-year pe-
riod preceding that confer-
ence, Madison County had
received about $1.2 mil-
lion. Representative Pick-
ens stated that using these'
funds for purchases like
the courthouse expansion
that are constructive to
the county, but might oth-
erwise be out of budget, is
exactly how they were in-
tended," Sanders ex-
plained.
The Clerk was very
gracious and understand-
ing of the objections that
have been voiced, remain-
ing available as needed for
discussion. He further
thanked the board' for.
their appreciation of this
effort and looks forward to
the facility serving the
county for decades to
come.


Do You Know A Real Hero?


By Bryant Thigpen
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The definition of a hero is simply "a person who, in
the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has per-
formed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal."
To me, a hero is a person who gives their life and do-
nates their time for the cause of Christ, without com-
plaints, but with gladness. Often a hero sacrifices their
personal comfort or goes out of the way to do for anoth-
er, or for God. These are true heroes. They can be found


in every church when it's church time, workdays or any
activity involving their church.
In this issue of the Path of Faith, we have begun a
series recognizing local heroes. We are looking for indi-
viduals who have been the backbone of the church and
their family One who sacrifices their time serving in
the church, and someone you can count on, no matter
what. If you know of someone who fits the criteria,
please contact Bryant Thigpen at (850) 973-4141, or email
bryant@greenepublishing.com.

"no place like home."
"I moved to Jacksonville for a while," Hurst
Shared, "but it was too fast paced, too busy I did-
n't like it so I moved back."
A 1999 graduate from Madison County High
School, Hurst is thinking of going into law en-
forcement. His father was a police officer for 25 H i nn n l
years and his mother worked as a home caretak-

Children Learn

What They Live
When I was a child on through my teenage years,
scroll hung im my bedroom (on my closet door) with a
nice saying on it. I used to lie in bed and read that scroll
many a night as I fell asleep. The older I got, the more I
understood what it meant.
I have thought of that scroll, and, what those word
meant, for many years. I have yet to buy me the sam.
saying, to hang in my daughters' rooms, but have eve
intention of doing so.
CHILDREN LEARN WHAT THEY LIVE
If a child lives with criticism,
He learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility,
He learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule,
He learns to be shy
If a child lives with jealousy,
He learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with tolerance,
He learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement,
He learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with praise, '
He learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with fairness,
He learns justice,
If a child lives with security,
He learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval,
He learns to like himself.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship,
He learns to find life in the,world.

*I am offended that our home town paper runs
a weekly horoscope. Is it really necessary to put
it in a "news" paper?
*How come the people pushing the liquor
claim they are helping Madison County when all
they do is put down the churches and call the peo-
ple who live here "stupid?"
*How come when I put two socks in the wash-
ing machine only one sock comes out?
People who rail on and on and on about free-
dom, free speech and democracy and then 'ban
people from their blog sites because they don't
echo their ideological beliefs.
The fact that as a society we are more fo-
cused on curing cancer than stopping it from hap-
pening in the first place by limiting the toxic and
carcinogenic emissions our way of life spews into
the atmosphere on a daily basis (and when we do
talk about cancer prevention, we talk about in
terms of what we eat or exercise never about
how we have made the air we breathe poison).
The state of the corporate controlled media
that has more control over who Americans will
elect President in 2008 than American citizens do.
People who limit debate by relying on idiotic
and ultimately meaningless statements such as
"support the troops" or "if we don't fight them
over there we'll fight them over here."
That supporting the troops has become syn-
onymous with supporting the war. '
The fact that we need commercials telling
people to turn off their lights when they're not in
a room. Sigh....
When people say that we need to save the
Earth. Um no, we need to save humanity Big dif-
ference. The earth will continue to be here for bil-
lions of years after we kill ourselves off.
That people believe that freedom of speech
means that there is no freedom of responsibility
for what one says.


As we approach this
fall's general election, the
state of the American
(and. world), economy is
the front-and-center issue.
The biggest fly in the oint-
ment has tobe the credit
crisis. Now you must
know that I ani loath to
throw' the term "crisis"
about in willy-nilly fash-
ion. Most so-called crises
really aren't; rather they
are an effort by the media
and politicians to stir up
the people. But the credit
problem we are in is truly
a crisis.
Why, you ask? Be-
cause credit or the ability
to borrow is the financial
underpinning of our econ-
omy. Without the ability
to borrow and the promise
to repay according to the'
terms of the contract,.the
business cycle collapses -
inventories aren't built;
capital equipment isn't
purchased; construction
loans aren't granted,
farmers can't plant their
crops, etc., etc. The eco-
nomic system depends on
credit and when that cred-
it dries up because lenders
fear they won't be repaid,
the economy shuts down.
How did we get into
this mess? A couple of fi-
nancial giants nicknamed
Fannie and Freddie are at
the root of the problem
with plenty of greed and
political interference
along the way Don't allow
yourself to be .misled -
there are a lot of politi-
cians who are trying to
cover- their own tracks by
blaming banking deregu-i
nation for the crisis. This
is nothing more than a ca-
nard to throw you off the
trail. The root of the cred-
it crisis is high risk home
loans made to low income
buyers where bankers
were politically forced
into making risky loans.
The Federal National
Mortgage Association
(Fannie Mae) was created
during the 1930s to pro-
vide liquidity to home
mortgage markets as part
of Roosevelt's New Deal.
It was a government enti-
ty at that time. Fast for-
ward to 1968 and Lyndon
Johnson converted Fannie
into a government spon-
sored enterprise (GSE a
public-private partner-
ship), to take Fannie's
debt off the budget and
lessen the deficit that re-
suited from his inflation-
ary "guns and butter" pol-
icy Two years later, an-
other GSE, the Federal
Home Loan Mortgage As-
sociation (Freddie Mac),
was created as competi-
tion for Fannie Mae.
An inherent problem
with a GSE is that we have
mixed the public and pri-
vate sector. Because in-
vestors feel that the gov-
ernment will come to their
aid if trouble occurs, we
have created a situation
where profits are priva-
tized and risk is publi-
cized in other words,
people can profit from in-
vesting in this organiza-
tion but risk wrn be borne
by the taxpayer.. Another
problem is that the GSEs
were able to borrow mon-
ey to invest in mortgage
backed securities at very
favorable rates, again be-
cause lenders were confi-
dent that the GSEs were
backed by the U.S. Trea-
sury. For added insur-
ance, Fannie and Freddie
made generous campaign


contributions to their al-
lies in Congress who could
be counted on to provide

political cover. Some
three hundred received
political contributions
and while there were Re-
publicans on the list, De-
mocrats predominated,
topped by Senate Banking
chair Chris Dodd and
presidential nominee
Barack Obama.
Politicians would
place their friends into the
governing structures of
Fannie and Freddie so
they could be rewarded by
the profit side of the equa-
tion. In the last years of
the Clinton Administra-
tion, the president reward-
ed a close financial advi-
sor Franklin Raines with
the CEO position at Fan-
hie Mae. Over the next
five years, Raines became
very rich, to the tune of
$90 million- and a number
of Democrat board mem-
bers and senior officials
joined in the money pa-
rade.
When George Bush
took office in 2001, he al-
most immediately focused
on the GSEs, calling atten-
tion to their unusual size
and because of that, risk
to the mortgage industry
Federal Reserve Board
Chairman Alan
Greenspan and Treasury
officials echoed Bush's
concerns, but their calls
for reform were passed
over as Fannie and Fred-
die called on their Con-
gressional friends for cov-
er. Democrats like power-
ful House banking chair
Barney Frank of Massa-
chusetts were in a state of
denial that there were any
problems with the GSEs
and warned that Adminis-
tration efforts to reform
would undermine afford-
able housing.
As far back as the
Carter-era Community Re-
development Act, the
GSEs and private banks
had been under pressure
from politicians and com-
munity organizers to re-
lax lending restrictions to
make loans to borrowers
that otherwise could not
afford to buy a home.
Over time, the weight of
these shaky loans became
too much to bear.
One of the things that
Raines and his cronies did
was cook the books to
make profits appear larger
than they actually were in
order to trigger annual ex-
ecutive bonuses. In 2003
and 2004, the errors were
too large to hide. First
Freddie Mac got in trouble
with -their accounting
arm, the Office of Federal
Housing Enterprise Over-
sight, followed by Fannie
Mae. Senior officials like
Raines and chief financial
,officer Tim Howard were
relieved. The regulators
discovered that neither
agency had adopted the
new accounting standards
that resulted from the fail-
ures of companies like En-
ron and World Coin.
Fannie and Freddie
were in trouble and a Con-
gressional investigation
would only complicate
matters. Their new man-
agement was able to call
the dogs off by promising
Congressional banking
gurus Frank and Dodd


that they w-73 -stepiup ef-
forts to bank roll low in-
come, affordable housing.
This puts the GSEs
into the subprime mort-
gage business buying
mortgage backed securi-
ties (MBS) Ithat would only
hold their value in an ap- ,
preciating real estate mar-
ket. When the air began to
leak from the real estate
balloon in early 2006, Fan-
nie Mae and Freddie Mac
were in real trouble. A lot
of their now less-than-par-
value paper had been pur-
chased by large invest-
ment banks (Lehnian) and
insurance companies
(AIG) and this financial
house of cards began to
fold.
In the name of low in-
come, affordable housing,
people received mortgage
loans they could not pay
for. Fundamentally, here
is the problem in a nut-
shell: the only way a buyer
can service a $300K home
mortgage on a $50K salary
is over the short term with
very "creative" financing.
The buyer (and lender)
is hoping that he can flip
the house for a profit be-
fore the interest rates re-
set to market value. But
when the value of the
home deflates to $200K and
interest rates reset, buyer
and lender are in a heap of
trouble the buyer can't
make payments, and the
lender realizes the house
isn't worth the value of
the mortgage. When this
happens in tens of thou-
sands of cases, the credit
market that underpins our
financial system, will
freeze up, which we are
currently witnessing.
Listen to this deja vu
moment from a September
30, 1999 New York Times
story: "In moving, even
tentatively into this new
area of lending, Fannie
Mae is taking on signifi-
cantly more risk; which
may not, pose any difficul-
ties during flush economic
times. But the govern-
ment-subsidized corpora-
tion may run into trouble
in an economic downturn,
prompting a government
rescue similar to the say-
ings and loan industry in
the 1980s." Thiswas-a har-
binger of things to come,
but Fannie's political al-
lie's were in a state 'of de-
nial.
Here is the point of
this saga: the'two GSEs be-
came more concerned
with meeting social goals
of blindly helping low in-
come people buy a home
than they were concerned
about risk and solvency A
financially savvy 'analyst
or banker would never
knowingly fall into this
trap, but what do politi-
cians understand about
such things?
In the wake of the ac-
counting scandals at Fan-
nie and Freddie, there was
an effort in January 2005
by the Republicans to re-
build an oversight struc-
ture that might well have
avoided this disaster. In

mittee, Chuck Hagel of

Become Familiar with.
Wealth-transfer Strategies
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
To retire comfortably, you need to save and invest reg-
ularly. For example, you need to contribute as much as you
can afford to your 401(k) and IRA. But once you retire, you'll
need to "switch gears" somewhat and move from wealth-
accumulation strategies to wealth-transfer strategies.
An effective wealth-transfer strategy can help you
accomplish a variety of goals, such as'idistributing your
assets the way. you choose, avoiding probate and reducing
estate taxes. And you can explore a variety of wealth-trans-
fer tools, including the following:

Gifting You can give up to $12,000 per year to as
many people as you'd like without incurring gift .taxes. And
if you want to help a child or grandchild pay for college
through a Section 529 college savings plan, you can
"bunch" the $12,000 limit over five years to make one
$60,000 gift, or one $120,000 gift if it comes from you.and
your spouse. (If you group the contributions together this
way, you won't be able to make another $12,000 gift to that
same child or grandchild for the next five years.)
*Wil A wil is simply a plan for distributing your assets
to family members and other beneficiaries. If you were to
die intestate (without a will), state laws would determine
how your assets should be distributed and there's no
guarantee that the end' result would be what you would
have chosen.
Beneficiary designations Many of your financial
assets including annuities, life insurance, IRAs and
401(k) plans allow you to name a beneficiary. Upon your
death, your beneficiary will automatically receive these
assets, avoiding the sometimes time-consuming, expen-
sive (and public) process of probate. Because beneficiary
designations supersede any instructions you might put in a
will or living trust, it's essential that you periodically review
these designations to make sure they reflect your current
wishes.
Trusts Different trusts can help you accomplish a
variety of wealth-transfer and estate-planning goals, For
example, a revocable living trust can help you leave assets
to your heirs without going through probate. You can also
structure the trust to stagger payments. 'over a number of
years, rather than all at once, or include other restrictions
or incentives. An irrevocable life insurance trust allows you
to keep the death benefit of your life insurance policy out-'
side your estate, so the insurance proceeds won't increase
your estate tax liability. And a charitable remainder trust
allows you to transfer an appreciated asset such as a
stock or piece of real estate to a charitable trust, there-
by allowing you to defer or even avoid capital gains taxes
on the sale of the asset. Plus, the trust can provide you with
a lifetime income stream while the remainder of the assets
can be distributed to your favorite charities.
As you can see, trusts are versatile instruments but
they are also complex. Consequently, you'll need to consult
with your tax and legal advisors regarding your particular
situation.
In fact, all the wealth-transfer techniques we've looked
at will require some careful thought and preparation on
your part so don't wait too long before getting started.
Time has a way of sneaking up on all of us but it's espe-
cially sneaky when we're unprepared.

Madison Man Arrested

For Escape

A man who was arrested Friday, October 3,'had the
Madison Police Department shaking their heads. T
According to an MPD report, Patrolman Eric Gilbert 4
responded to Sonic to assist Reserve Patrolman Ben:
Mabry When he arrived,. Mabry told him that Rhawn
DePriest, 23, had hit another employee on the head with -
his fight.
Gilbert 'made contact with the victim, who had a 3
knot on his head from being hit. '
The police tried to locate DePriest at the restaurant
but DePriest ran out the back door.
Police officers searched around and could not locate
DePriest. They finally found him climbing over a fence. :
They stopped him, handcuffed him and had him sit 1
in the back seat of Mabry's patrol car, where he escaped,
ran across the road to North Florida Community Col-
lege and jumped in the pond.
DePriest was finally caught and booked into the '
Madison County Jail. At the jail, the correctional officer
found a marijuana pipe.
DePriest was charged with possession of contra-
band, introduction of contraband into a county facility,
battery,,escape and disorderly intoxication.

So, in order to facili-
tate this process, lift sta-
tions are constructed.
And, again, while this is a
common industrial pro-
ject, it is essential for
building, out the 50-acre
site being developed on be-
half of the Madison Coun-
ty Development Council.
Several weeks ago,
three companies were
identified according to cri-
teria established for this
specific application, yield-
ing the top three appli-
cants that will now come
before the board to award
the contract. During the
county infrastructure de-
velopment that runs be-
tween Exit 258 and 262
along 1-10 was launched a
few years ago, these pro-
jects, have been executed
very effectively, although
there was one disappoint-
ment that arose during
this selection process.
Local engineer Brent
Wittman, who has steadily
increased the presence of
his company, Madison En-
gineering, throughout the
county in recent years,
was not among the three
engineering firms select-
ed. He noted that his firm
has earned the credentials
to sit at the table for these
types projects, further
stating that the county
should revisit the award-
scoring format, which is
too heavily weighted in fa-
vor of established firms.
Wittman spoke to
CDBG Grant Manager,
Steve Fellerman, head-
quartered in Tallahassee,
to get more insights for fu-
ture projects. Wittman
said he very much enjoys.
working with the county
and local municipalities;

he simply wants an oppor-
tunity, for more and larger
local projects in Madison
County where he and his
family are proud to call

This past summer on June 13, Madison County High
School senior Jesica Gallegos participated in a very spe-
cial ceremony with Florida Governor Charlie Crist as
he signed legislation that designated the first two weeks
of October each year as "Disability History and Aware-
ness Weeks.".
Officially referred to as Section 1003.4205, Florida
Statutes, Disability History and Awareness Instruction,
the landmark legislation establishes intensive instruc-
tion designed to expand students' knowledge, under-
standing and awareness of individuals with disabilities,
Sthe history of disability and the disability rights move-
ment. It is recommended that the instruction be inte-
grated into the existing school curriculum and may be
delivered by qualified school personnel or knowledge-
S able guest speakers with a focus on including individu-
als with disabilities.
According to state reports, one in every five Ameri-
cans is a person with a disability Some disabilities are
acquired, others startat birth and still others are ac-
quired through accident or illness. Despite the fact that
disabilities are a natural part of life, people with dis-
abilities have not always had access to equal opportuni-
ties. This newest legislation is part of a continuing ef-
fort to eliminate those challenges.

Coalition Comes Together

To Serve Whole Child
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
* During the September 24 meeting of the Whole
Child Coalition of Madison County providers and com-
munity volunteers dis-
cussed several initia-' .
tives being launched
that share a common fo- -.
cus, which is the devel-
opment and care of the : C
children of Madison
County .... Leon
As the name implies,
"Whole Child" is, in fact, concerned with all aspects of
a child's life, accepting and promoting the belief that
only through the combined support of the key ingredi-
ents in a child's life, including family, school and
church, can lifelong benefits be realized.
According to its directives, the Whole Child project,
which began with the Lawton Chiles Foundation, asks
everyone to "Imagine a community where everyone
works together to make sure children thrive," further
stating that a whole child is "one who attains physical,
intellectual and spiritual well-being; experiences
strong, positive family attachment; interacts construc-
tively in a social context; has a sense of hope; and lives
in an environment that encourages him or her to suc-
ceed."
Practically speaking, such critical goals must, as the
project is organized, include the child's family and com-
munity An unemployed or addicted parent, for in-
stance, must receive help to facilitate a permanently
constructive environment for the child. Similarly, an
unhealthy child, must receive prompt and convenient
medical and dental care in order to thrive. The list is
long and necessarily involves numerous agencies and
sources. So among othd priorities, the group is launch-
ing a simple way to access these various sources and so-
lutions. This is the reason Whole Child was formed.
Utilizing a "No wrong door" philosophy, the group is
finalizing a central directory to refer and advise those in
need where help may be found. No matter what the
need, whether employment, medical care or education
just to name a few, in the very near future, parents of
school-age children will be notified regarding easy ac-
cess to an online directory as well as support staff
charged with making sure the following six dimensions
of a whole child are addressed:
Physical and Mental Health
*Safe and Nurturing Environment
Economic'Stability
Quality Education
Social Interaction and Competence
Spiritual Foundation and Strength

about a month ago.
Madison Rotary has a
proud tradition of sup-
porting local and interna-
tional club causes and the
rifle raffle was no excep-
tion. in fact, several Ro-
tarians, including Jargo
Clark and Jada Williams,
were acknowledged for
their exceptional efforts.
Then, in a surprising
but applauded coinci-
dence, visiting Lee Mayor
Ernestine Kinsey drew the
winning ticket that be-
longed to raffle organizer
Carl Dean.
To highlight the coin-
cidence, the featured guest
of the meeting was none
other than Judy Dean,
whose lucky raffle-win-
ning husband is apparent-
ly even luckier to be mar-
ried to someone that all
agree sets the standard for
passion of charity Judy is
now heading the Needy
Families project, which
this year has teamed with
the Recycle-4-Charity cam-
paign to bring Christmas
gifts to impoverished fam-
ilies throughout Madison
County.
Needy Families was
founded with the belief
that every child deserves
something for the Holiday
season, fulfilling the ideal
that giving is better than
receiving and that receiv-
ing shouldn't be missed by
needy children. Coordi-
nating with local service
and faith-based organiza-
tions, last year Needy
Families reached out to
over 600 families with gifts
of dolls, remote controlled
toys, games and all the
love and batteries to run


them.
Now, as the selected re-

n Who Will Preside?


a


d. '
1602 (
Member American Gem Society


By Tresa Erickson
You're engaged and going to be mar-
ried. While you would like to use the ser-
vices of the minister at the church you
attended as a child, your future spouse
would like to use the services of the min-
ister at their church. Rather than fight
,about it,, you have decided to compromise
and select an entirely different officiant
to preside over your ceremony.
As withselecting other professionals,
you will need to create a list of potential
candidates. Ask your friends and family
for recommendations and arrange to
meet with each candidate one on one. You
want someone who suits your personality
and ideology and is easy to work with,
and the only way to determine that is by
interviewing them.
When interviewing candidates, find
out first about their availability and be-
liefs. Will the officiant be available the
day of your rehearsal and wedding? If
not, cross them off your.list. How does
th.e officiant categorize their religious be-
liefs? Are they of a specific faith? If you
and your future spouse are of different
faiths, then you might want an interfaith
minister.
With that basic information intact,
you can start getting more specific. Ask
about any restrictions and requirements
the officiant may have in place. Do they
work offsite or only within a church? Do
they allow for personalization of vows?


Do they require premarital counseling?
Find out how long it wil take the offi-
ciant to perform the ceremony and how
they will go about it. Do they adhere to
standard ceremony practices, or do they
allow for more flexibility? Will they keep
the service brief and focus specifically on
the exchange of vows, or will they elabo-
rate and include a sermon before the ex-
change of vows?
Ask about the officiant's services and
fees. What exactly do they provide, just
officiating or officiating and premarital
counseling? How much do they charge?
Some officiates ask for a donation, while
others charge a flat fee.
If you are having the wedding at the
church where the officiant resides, you
may have to ask more in-depth questions.
What are the church's policies and re-
strictions regarding weddings? What serY-
vices do they provide? How many wed-
dings are being performed at the church
on that day?
These are just some of the questions
you should ask when interviewing the
candidates on your list. Once you have
conducted all of the interviews, you can
start narrowing your list to a select few.
If you have more than one favorite,
arrange to interview each again before
you make your final decision.
Officiants often set the tone of wed-
dings. Make sure you choose the right
one for your big day

HEALTH & NUTRITION


Question: What is the stock market going to do? Is
it going to go up or down and how is this going to affect
my dental health?

Answer: Wow! I am a little out of my league on this
one, but here goes. I can tell you with confidence that
the stock market will .go down and that it will go up.
The trouble is I do not know when or which will happen
first. I don't know the stock market.

Teeth do not know the stock market either. Dental
diseases march along irrespective of the stock market.
So my suggestion is to take care of your teeth and do
not let the stock market ups and down alter your dental
health. If you feel like you want to save or conserve
money, I have a few tips for you. I can save you money
and improve your dental health at the same time.
There are long established ways to reduce the cost of
dental visits by improving your dental health. First, go
ahead with regular cleaning. It is cheaper to practice
preventive dentistry. Catching issues when they are
small is much cheaper than delay. $100 for a filling is
cheaper and better than $3000 for an' extraction and
bridge. Second, floss every day. This really brings
down dental costs. You do not have to floss all of your
teeth, just the ones you want to keep. Third, buy a new
toothbrush that works well. You are not stopping any
disease with that old worn out toothbrush. Fourth, use
Fluoride mouthwash everyday.

See your dentist regularly. Do not let your smile go into
recession.

Protecting Against Pink Eye


By Tyrra B Meserve,
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A freutent affliction, especially
among school age children, con-
junctivitis is. often referred to as
pink eye. Though sometimes.
alarming, it is a fairly common
condition that, though requiring a
doctor's attention, usually carries
no long-term eye or vision damage.,
With irritating symptoms, most
cases of pink eye will subside on
their own, but all require medical
attention. As with any condition
affecting small children, it is im-
portant to see a physician any time
pink eye is suspected.
Its 6:30 a.m. and the baby has.
just woken up howling because her
lids are glued shut. Crusty and.
cranky, her eyelids are puffy and
Mom knows right away that school
today is now not an option. Highly
contagious, pink eye spreads like


proverbial wildfire, passing from
one child to another in the prickly
blink of an eye. Caused by infec-
tions, allergies or substances that
irritate the eyes, the different
types of pink eye can have differ-
ent symptoms that vary from child
to child.
"It seems to be worse during
the spring and summer months,"
said Marta Smith, an LPN at Madi-
son County High School. ",There's
not a whole lot that seems to slow
it down, but its important to try to
keep the child's hands clean and
try to keep them from rubbing
their eyes. Conjunctivitis is so con-
tagious that. if a child touches one
eye and then the other they can
end up cross contaminating. It's spo
contagious that a child has to be on
the medication for a full 24 hours
before they can return to school."
With symptoms that vary from


clear running eyes, light sensitivi-
ty, eyes so red they appear as
though they are ready to bleed,
bright red lids and dark red eyes
and lids, the causes of pink eye
vary from case to case as well. Bac-
teria and viruses tend to be the
most common, however many cas-
es are due to allergies or irritating
substances coming in contact with
the eyes. In almost all cases, how-
ever, there is severe itchiness and
sometimes serious pain."
"Even though with different
types and causes of conjunctivi-
tis," Smith informed, "some do run
their own course, but some can do
damage to the eye, and some are
extremely painful and no one -
wants to see someone suffer that
long."

Hands Are For Washing, Not Spreading


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
During the 1800's, up to 25 per-
cent of women delivering babies in
hospitals died from childbed fever
caused by Streptococcus pyogenes
bacteria. In the late 1840's, a doctor
in a Vienna hospital noticed an
alarming rate of patients dying at.
the hands of medical students who
were coming straight from the au-
topsy room to the delivery room. In
the 1870's, in France, one hospital
was knbwn as the House of Crime
because of the incredible number
of new mothers dying from infec-
tion within its walls. The common
denominator was the lack of hand


washing.
"The main practice that can be
adopted to reduce cases ranging
from colds, the flu, sinuses and a
number of infections is proper
hand washing," said Marta Smith,
an LPN at Madison County High
School. "Thoroughly washing one's
hands helps to keep infections and
many viruses from spreading."
Nosocomial infections, or in-
fections acquired by patients while
hospitalized that are unrelated to
original condition, are estimated
to effect from five to 15 percent of
all hospital patients. Improper,
hand washing continues to be re-
sponsible for the spread of disease


within childcare and elderly care
centers. In the food service indus-
try, hand washing is stressed regu-
larly to reduce the spread of Sal-
monella and other food born ill-
nesses.
A-little hot running water and
a dash of soapgoes a long way. It
has been estimated that $500 mil-.
lion dollars a year would be saved
simple by eliminating 17 percent
of nosocomial infections. With
such drastic health benefits, it is
time to jump in with both hands
and start washing.

"

Financial Planning Week
"


"During this volatile
economic climate, it is es-
sential that Floridians
plan financially as much
as possible," said Sink,
who oversees the Depart-
ment of Financial. Ser-
vices. "Too many Floridi-
ans are living paycheck-
to-paycheck, not saving
for a rainy day and living
above their means. This
week and throughout the
year, my office is working
to educate Floridians on
making better financial
decisions and planning
for a more financially se-
cure future."
S"Financial Planning
Week" will focus on edu-


coating Floridians about
important financial is-
sues such. as the impor-
tance of financial plan-
ning, including tax, es-
tate, investment, risk and
retirement planning. Cit-
izens will be given the
tools necessary to in-
crease their financial, lit-
eracy and learn to apply
the financial planning
process to their personal
situations. The financial
planning process provides
a template for assessing,
evaluating, and achieving
financial objectives
through personal goal set-
ting, budgeting, making
smart financial decisions
and monitoring results.
CFO Sink is a strong
proponent of financial lit-
eracy. Through outreach
coordinators, his division
has reached out to local
communities to educate
consumers on topics such
as the wise use of credit
cards for teens, credit
card identity theft, hurri-
cane preparedness, small
business security, life in-
surance, and first-time
homebuyer workshops.
Last year alone, the de-
partment conducted over
2,680 outreach events
around the state.
The Financial Plan-
ning Association of Flori-
da is the membership or-
ganization for the finan-
cial planning community,
representing 1,700 mem-
bers dedicated to support-
ing the financial planning
process as a way to help

Amid all the bad financial news (and there is plenty),
there are reasons to take heart:
The vast majority of Amerioa's banks are highly capitalized,
with a cushion of $1.3 trillion as a backstop against possible
losses. (Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Lehman Brothers and
AIG are not Banks.)
Your bank deposits are FDIC insured for.$100,000 per
person per institution. If you have deposits over $100,000,
you can get additional FDIC coverage, legally and safely,
beyond that basic level. Ask us to show you how. '

What's in Your Wallet?
Besides baby photos, a
library card, and old re-
ceipts, you probably have
a handful of credit cards
stashed in there. But are
you playing these cards
right to get the best rates
and rewards possible?
And how will the way you
use these cards now affect
your payments down the
line on a new minivan or
home? We've got answers
to these and other ques-
tions for once and for all.

Will Late Payments
Hurt My Credit?
Yes! 'One late pay-
ment is probably okay, but


when you get. to two or
more late payments or one
totally missed payment,
it's going to cost you some
points on your credit
score," says Jeff Schu-
macher, senior vice presi-
dent at Citi Cards. (For
more on credit scores, see
the next question.) Al-
ways allow five to seven


business days for your
check to get through the
mail, or better yet, pay
your bills online: When
you get your statement,
log on to the credit card's
or your bank's Web site
and schedule an electron-
ic payment -- to arrive
right on the due date if
you like.

Stocks Plummet Despite Bailout


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
According to midday reports Mon-
day, October 6, Wall'Street continues to
tumble, joining a global sell'off as fears
grow that the financial crisis will cas-
cade around the world despite bailout ef-
forts by the United States and other gov-
ernments. The Dow Jones Industrial Av-
erage was down over 500 points at mid-
afternoon, falling below 10,000 for the
first time in four years. The credit mar-
kets remained under strain.
The markets have apparently decid-
ed that the $700 billion rescue plan won't
work quickly to unfreeze the credit mar-
kets, and that many banks are still hav-
ing difficulty gaining access to cash,
causing investors to exit stocks and
move money into the relative safety of
government debt.
In fact, over the weekend govern-
ments across Europe also rushed to sup-
port their failing banks. The German
government and financial industry
agreed on a $68 billion bailout for com-


mercial-property lender Hypo Real Es-
tate Holding AG, while France's BNP
Paribas agreed to acquire a 75 percent
stake in Fortis's Belgium bank after a
government rescue failed. The govern-
ments of Ireland and Greece also said
they would guarantee bank deposits.
The Federal Reserve continues to im-
plement fresh steps to help ease frozen
credit markets. The central bank said it
will resume paying interest on commer-
cial bank reserves and will expand its
loan program to squeezed banks imme-
diately Unfortunately, investors still
hold a pessimistic view of the future,
seeing no end to the crisis in the near
term.
"This is a psychologically important
moment that.we passed below the 10,000
level," said Ryan Detrick, Senior Techni-
cal Strategist at Schaeffer's Investment
Research. "But, the issues are world- '
wide. The fact is people are scared and
the only thing they're doing is selling."

From the moment you drive up to the
historic Sawano Club, there is a noticeable
shift in time and perception. You feel as
,though you have happened onto an old
movie set from the 40's, but then again, ,
maybe the wisp of a gossamer gown that
you thought you saw on the porch was the
ghost of a woman who wanted to keep danc-
ing forever. On Saturday, October 18, it
might be a real, modern day femme fatale
or sophisticated career woman, modeling
the latest in taste and trends from the ven-
erable Turner's Fashions in Moultrie, Ga.
The annual Gadsden Arts Center fash-
ion show will be the event of the fall season


that you don't want to miss. A gourmet
luncheon, elegantly served and beginning
with Mimosas, will accompany the array of
fashions modeled by lovely ladies from 14 to
' 92. The very entertaining Ann Carlton,
owner of Turner's Fashions, will preview
outfits from sporty to spectacular.
Tickets, $35, may be purchased in ad-
vance by calling the Arts Center, 875-4866,
or by mailing a check to 13 North Madison
Street, Quincy, Florida 32351. Reserved ta-
bles are available but space is limited, so
call now and mark the date for a memorable
afternoon.
The fashion show is presented by Sun-


Trust Bank, with additional support from
Nic's Toggery, Tricia Willis Custom Event
Planning, Jan Anderson and Susan Hinson
Catering, and Todd Baroody Catering.
Funds from the fashion show and lun-
cheon will benefit the Gadsden Arts Cen-
ter's educational programs.. T'he Art Cen-
ter, housed in the beautifully renovated
1912 Bell and Bates hardware store build-
ing, is open Tuesday through Saturday, .10

Bryan Bowers, Master Autoharpist, Returns To ACV


By Sally Q. Smith,
Office for Residential Services,
Advent Christian Village
Advent Christian Village (ACV) is
pleased to announce the return performance
of Master Autoharpist, Bryan Bowers, on
Tuesday evening, October 28, at 7:00 p.m. in
the Sawmill Room at Phillips Center. I
Bryan Bowers was born in 1940 in York-
town, Virginia, and was raised in New Bo-:
hemia, Va. During his youth, Mr. Bowers
tagged along, with the field workers and
gandy dancers and learned to sing old call-
and-answer songs. He recalls, "The music I
heard while working in the fields was mes-
merizing."
In the late '60s, Bowers took up the guitar.
"The roots of the music had gone real deep
in me," he explained. "Music was real fulfill-
ing, unlike anything I had ever done before."
Eventually Bowers was introduced to the au-
toharp. "I ran into a guy that ... could get the
harp in good tune," he said. .H e
played without any fingerpicks, just with his
fingernails. He had a real sprightly style on
it. It was the first time I'd heard someone
play it in good tune and play it well. It
opened my eyes and my ears. I went out and
got one the next day" In 1971, Mr. Bowers
played for coins in Seattle, Wa., as a street
singer and in bars. for the right'to pass the


hat. He later headed east and played in the
"bluegrass community"
Bowers' creativity and talent have won
him induction into Frets Magazine's First
Gallery of the Greats after five years of win-
ning the stringed instrument, open category .
of the magazine's readers' poll. This distinc-
tion put him along side other luminaries,
such as Chet Atkins and Itzhak Perlman, rec-
ognized for their personal accomplishments.
In 1993, he was inducted into the Autoharp
Hall of Fame to stand only with- Maybelle
Carter, Kilby Snow, and Sara Carter.
For nearly three decades, Bowers has
been to the autoharp what Earl Scruggs was
to the five-string banjo. He presents instru-
mental virtuosity combined with warmth,
eloquence, expression, and professionalism.
Deseret News of Salt Lake City, Utah, pro-
claims that calling "Bryan Bowers' perfor-
mance simply a 'concert' would be inade-
quate if not inaccurate ... (it) could better be
described as an experience!"
Do not miss out on this "experience!" Ad-
mission to this concert is free, and donations
will be accepted. For more info about this
concert, please call Dick Grillo at (386) 658-
5557, or e-mail dgrillo@acvillage.net. For'

By Fran Hunt
Special From The Monticello News
Six Aucilla runners broke their personal
records and the remaining team all finished in a
very impressive standing during the FSU Invita-
tional, Saturday.
Coach Dan Nennstiel said there were 45 schools
competing, with hundreds of runners competing.
"Six Aucilla runners, two girls, two boys, and
two team managers, set personal records," said


Nennstiel. "I was very impressed with all of their
times, they did very well against some very com-
petition and some great runners.
"The season is half over now and I am seeing
continual improvement in their times," Nennstiel
added. "The improvement is easy to see. The kids
keep getting faster every week and that's what
they focus on, other than what the competition
does. I think we'll have a pretty strong finish this
year, a lot of our runners are ahead of where they

AROUND MADISON COUNTY




COWBOYS HUS! 0OVER JAGUARS, 52-15


By Michael Curtis
GreenePublishing Inc.
Even though East Gadsden scored a touchdown on the
opening drive of the game against Madison County last
Friday night, marking the first points scored this season
against the Cowboys' punishing defense, led by Jacobbi
McDaniel, the rest of the game was a scoring showcase by
Chris Thompson that left the Jaguars headed home with a
52-15 defeat.
The Cowboys, now 3-0 for the season, came into the
game ranked fourth on MaxPreps and 34th on rivals.com
(different emphasis), which are national rankings for all
high school teams, regardless of size. And, of course, the
Cowboys are solidly ranked number one on the Massey Poll
for Florida 2A schools. Coach Frankie Carroll and staff
are modestly, but steadily continuing to amass points,
ranking, and a reputation for gridiron football, southern
style.
The opening drive made the fans wonder if the Jaguars
would make a game of it. Utilizing a series of short, out-
side passes, the visitors caught the Cowboy's secondary off
balance, resulting in a 25-yard touchdown pass to Marter-
ricus Thomas.
Cowboy's Defensive Coordinator Rod Williams quickly
made adjustments, however, leaving East Gadsden begging
for points the rest of the night until late in the fourth quar-
ter, when Montez Fryson caught a pass from Donterrius
Garrett. It was the Jaguars' only other score, which was fol-

lowed by a two-point conversion.
By the fourth quarter, the Cowboy's first-string defense
was enjoying a break on the sidelines, that the Jaguars
must have appreciated, considering the hard hits being lev-
eled on them all night. In fact, the several East Gadsden
mothers might still be looking for Jacobbi McDaniel fol-
lowing the smack-down he put in tackle after tackle, with
one so strong it left a rusher's helmet rolling down the field
with his pride. Seriously the defensive display by the
whole crew was exceptional.
As far as the Cowboy's offense, the coaches didn't need
many pages in the playbook. "Thompson left, Thompson
right, Thompson up the riddle," worked just fine, as Chris
Thompson rushed for three touchdowns, caught another
and ran back a 75-yard kickoff return to answer the
Jaguars opening score. Thompson's touchdown total has
reached double digits in only three games. After the game,
Thompson gave the team and coaches big complements
arid credit for the great season so far.
A performer in the first two games as well, rushing
powerhouse Cory Akins adtled a touchdown for the Cow-
boys, as did defensive standout Terrill Gillard, who scored
on a fumble recovery And, of course, no Cowboys offen-
sive attack would be complete without the leg of Bladen
Gudz putting icing on the cake, adding a field goal to his
perfect extra point total.

Aucilla coaches and football players join in prayer for injured Warrior Matt Bishop, who was being prepped for
ife-Flight transport to the hospital.
FRAN HUNT
Special From The Monticello News
After the Warriors were badly shaken in the first
quarter, losing the team's strongest running back due
to severe injury, Aucilla suffered a 32-16loss during the
2008 Homecoming game, Friday evening against Ran-
dolph.
Early in the first quarter, running back Matt Bishop
(last week's number one slot in rushing, one with 92
rushes for a total of 832 yards, and nine touchdowns)
received a severe concussion due to a helmet-to-hel-
met collision. Witnesses reported that paramedics
had to perform CPR on the senior and stabilize his
breathing before he could be transported for treat-
ment, via. Life-Flight. Witnesses.stated that Aucilla
cheerleaders were in tears and the varsity Warriors
were clearly shaken at their friend and teammate's in-
jury
Coach Joe Striplin reported Monday morning that
Bishop was released from the hospital Tuesday, how-
ever, in order to avoid another blow, he will be out of
playing football for the next six weeks, which boils
down to the remainder of the season.
Striplin named quarterback Trent Roberts as the of-
fensive player of the week, he had 10 completed pass-
es out of 25 attempts for a total of 120 yards and one
touchdown.

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 animals get an operation, to be sure they can't have kittens
or puppies. 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 shel-
ters 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 anddogs.
We would like to thank, everyone for visiting us at Lake
City Mall. We had a great time.

from the L.I.F.E. Guardians 4-H Home
school club will be going into the science
classroom of Mrs. Stacy Frakes to exper-


iment with hydrogels. We will examine
the properties of water-absorbing poly-
mers, which are long chains of molecules
that can be used in environmental appli-
cations such as agriculture, erosion con-
trol, soil management, and environmen-
tal clean-ups.
You can join the 4-H community to-
day To learn how to become a 4-H mem-

Local Celebration of 4-H NYSD Supports New National 'One
Million New Scientists. One Million New Ideas7T' Campaign


Madison County 4-H today celebrates
the first annual 4-H National Youth Science
Day (4-H NYSD) with a never-before-seen
event that will get young people not only in-
volved in but also. excited about science.
Launched in support of 4-H's new public
service campaign, "One Million New Scien-
tists. One Million New IdeasTM," Madison
County 4-H's celebration of 4-H NYSD fur-
ther promotes 4-H's long-term goal of at-
tracting one million new youth to 4-H sci-
ence, engineering, and technology pro-
grams by the year 2013.
In celebration of the first-ever 4-H
NYSD, local 4-H members, youth organiza-
tions, and parents will participate in 4-H's
National Science Experiment (NSE) a
new initiative that uses science principles
to teach youth across the country about the
importance of water conservation. Partici-
pants will gather at MCCS and will exam-
ine the properties of water-absorbing poly-
mers, which are long chains of molecules
that can be used in environmental applica-
tions such as agriculture, erosion control,
soil management, and environmental
clean-ups. The experiment will be done
with Mrs. Stacy Frakes 3-5th grade science
classes.
"4-H National Youth Science Day is a
great opportunity for members in Madison
County to get excited about science," said
Heather Johnson the Madison County 4-H
agent. "These initiatives help spark young
people's interest in science and may inspire
them to explore scientific careers. The
knowledge they gain will also help them
make a real difference in their own com-
.munities."
Science education expert Steve Span-
gler- worked closely with 4-H and Dr. Bob


Horton, 4-H science education specialist for
The Ohio State University Extension, to
create the NSE and related activities. Six
million 4-H youth plus parents, teachers,
students, and youth organizations nation-
wide were invited to participate in 4-H Na-
tional Youth Science Day
"The National Science Experiment is a
hands-on project with practical benefits
that educate youth about our environment -
- all the while making science fun," said Dr
Bob Horton. "The experiment helps youth
not only understand how superabsorbent
polymers can be used in horticulture, gar-
dening, landscaping, and specialty crop
farming, but also how they can address wa-
ter conservation and groundwater contam-
ination issues in their own communities."
As part of the Cooperative Extension
System of the United States Department of
Agriculture and the 106 Land-Grant Uni-
versities across the country, 4-H has been
educating youth on agriculture and the sci-
ences for over 100 years. In fact, 4-H's exist-
ing science curriculum, combined with
new initiatives like 4-H NYSD, will arm
youth with the necessary technical skills to
help America maintain its competitive
edge in the global marketplace. For more in-
formation on 4-H National Youth Science
Day, please visit www.4-H.org.
