Third Grader Dominates FCAT


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Last year marked a number of signifi-
cant accomplishments for the schools of
Madison County; perhaps most memo-
rable being the Greenville Elementary as-
cent from an F to a B rated school. Be-
hind those numbers, of course, are dozens
of devoted faculty and staff and hundreds
of students that ultimately represent the
proof in the pudding.
Among these triumphs, there will also
periodically arise those few students
whose accomplishments are exemplary to
the point of bordering on perfection, as
was the case with Simeria Alexander, now
a fourth grader at Madison County Cen-
tral School.
As a third grader taking the FCAT last
year, Simeria scored ,a perfect score on the
Reading portion of the test, while only
missing one question on the Math section,
putting her in the highest percentiles
among all students tested.
Please see FCAT, Page 13A


Simeria Alexander Is a fourth grader
at Madison County Central School where
her smile and her academic achieve-
ments continue to shine brightly.

By Michael Curtis

SFor months, Lee Public Works Director Mike Reg-
ister kept answering the call,
"Hey Mike, could you please
stay just a little longer until we
can find a : suitable, replace-
ment." As a selfless corner-
stone of the Lee community
Registers reply was always,
"Sure." Finally after an ex-
haustive search, Register can
now enjoy that much-overdue
break with duty, as the Town of
Lee has selected Kris Kuhl as
its new Public Works Director.
Interestingly, Kuhi and
Register share some common iu .i
history, having both come Kris Kuhl
from local law enforcement, where Kuhl built a
tremendous respect and friendship with Register,

enforcement career with the Sheriff's office in Collier

Doctor Lewis Saved


My Puppy's Life
I recently experienced a horrifying medical emer-
gency involving my Great Dane puppy named Laura.
She is only five months old but has already become a
cherished part of our family. On Saturday, at about 7:30
p.m., after Laura continued to show life-threatening
symptoms, we frantically left a message for Dr. John
Lewis of Madison Veterinary Clinic.
Dr. Lewis promptly returned our call with no sense
of imposition whatsoever. In fact, considering the cir-
cumstances, his wonderful attitude about the situation
was as exceptional as the medical attention he gave to
Laura. He made us feel so welcome and showed such
sympathy for Laura that Ijust knew everything was go-
ing to be all right.
Thank you Dr. Lewis for saving our precious puppy
and thank you on behalf of all those family pets that
can't say so for themselves. You are exactly what a com-
munity would hope for in a family veterinarian.

will be taking a field trip to look behind the scenes to see
the operation of a modern day circus. The kids will
have an opportunity to learn the difference between
African and Asian elephants, as well as feed them and
other animals.
"We are all very excited about this event for our
county," noted Chamber Director Ted Ensminger. "With
all that's going'on in our country today, this will be a
welcome, entertaining break for everyone. And it's es-
pecially nice that kid's under 12 can get in free!"
Show times are 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. with the gates
opening one hour before show time. Circus goers can
save $2 on each adult ticket by purchasing tickets in ad-
vance at the Chamber office or at other area ticket out-
lets. The cost is just $10 per adult, which also admits two
kids under 12 free. Tickets will be available at the gate
for $12 each.
For additional information, simply stop by the
Chamber office located at 177 SW Horry Avenue in Madi-
son. While there, be sure to register for the free RCA 26"
HDTV that will be given away later at the Circus. For
more information, call (850) 973-2788.

The Pledge of Allegiance
The following is a song/rendition written by
Charlie Daniels.
Many times I have written my columns about
our country, our servicemen, and our flag but this
is a totally different twist that can be said no better
than how Charlie Daniels puts it...
The following words were spoken by the late Red Skel-
ton on his television program, as he related the story of
his teacher, Mr. Lazwell, who felt his students had come to
think of the Pledge of Allegiance as merely something to
recite in class each day.
Now more than ever listen to the meaning of these
words.
I've been listening to you boys and girls recite the
Pledge of Allegiance all semester, and it seems as though
it is becoming monotonous to ya. May I recite it;, and try to
explain to ya the meaning of each word?
I Me, an individual, a committee of one.
Pledge dedicate all my worldly goods to give without
self pity.
Allegiance my love, and my devotion.
To The Flag our standard, Ole Glory, a symbol of
freedom. Wherever she waves there is.respect, because
your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts, "Free-
dom is everybody's job."
United that means that we have all come together
States individual communities that have united
into' 48 great states. 48 individual communities with pride,
dignity and purpose, all divided with imaginary bound-
aries, yet united to a common purpose, and that's love for
country.
And To The Republic a state in which sovern pow-
ers invested in representatives chosen by the people to gov-
ern, and government is the people, and it's from the peo-
ple to the leaders, and not from the leaders to the people.
For Which It Stands One Nation One nation
meaning so blessed by God.
Indivisible incapable of being divided.
With Liberty which is freedom, the right of power
to live one's own life without threats, fear, or some sort of
retaliation.
* And Justice the principal or quality of dealing
fairly with others.
For All which means boys and girls that it's as
much your country as it is mine.
Since I was a small boy two states have been added to
our country, and two words have been added to the Pledge
Of Allegiance "Under God." Now wouldn't it be a pity
if someone said that's a prayer and that it would be elim-
inated from schools too.
God Bless America!
Until then....see you.around the town.

still playing music for private parties and com-

survivor, strong and sound.
On how to carry on in life, Jenkins has this

mind and do not let yourself become depressed."
That and having an adoring wife, Sloopy,

The investigation was initiated when images of child
pornography were located by officials with Photobuck-
et.com, an internet-based photo-sharing service. Photo-
bucket reported the images to the National Center for
Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), which for-
warded the information to the Attorney General's Cy-
berCrime Unit. Investigators with the CyberCrime Unit
traced the images back to Rowe's Bonifay residence. A
search warrant was conducted with assistance from
Holmes County Sheriff Dennis Lee and his deputies.
"We are grateful to have the Attorney General's Cy-
berCrime Unit working, closely with local law enforce-
ment in these situations," said Sheriff Lee. "Working to-
gether, we can make a difference in the fight against
child predators in Holmes County and throughout Flori-
da."
Rowe, 51, admitted he knowingly possessed the im-
ages reported to NCMEC and was taken into custody at
the scene. Law enforcement seized his computer and oth-
er equipment to undergo additional forensic analysis.
Rowe faces five counts of possession of child pornogra-
phy, a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years
in prison per count. He is currently being held at the
Holmes County Jail.


Save for Retirement
52 Weeks a Year
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
The U.S. Congress has declared Oct. 19 25 as
National Save for Retirement Week. Why are our
lawmakers so concerned about Americans' retire-
ment savings? And are you doing everything you can
to build sufficient resources to enjoy the retirement
lifestyle you've envisioned?
In regard to the first question, it appears that
.-Congress does have good reason to be worried
about our ability to save for retirement. It isn't that we
never think of it. In fact, 72 percent of workers say
they and/or their spouses have saved for retirement,
according to the 2008 Retirement Confidence
Survey issued by the Employee Benefit Research
Institute. Of course, that still means that 28 percent
of workers aren't saving for retirement. But these
other statistics, taken from the same. survey, are
even more sobering:
Forty-nine percent of workers report less than
$25,000 in total savings and investments, exclud-
ing their home and defined benefit (pension) plans
Just 47 percent of workers and/or their, spouses
have calculated how much money they will need
for retirement.
Clearly, as a nation, we need to do a better job of
saving for retirement. As an individual, what can you
do? Consider these suggestions:
Calculate the amount of income you'll need dur-
ing retirement. The income you'll need during retire-
ment depends on your projected lifestyle. If, for
example, you plan to retire early and travel continu-
ally, you'll likely need to save more than your neigh-
bor, who wants to stay close to home and open a
small business. So, map out your retirement and try
to come up with a "price tag" for it. You may want to
work with a professional financial advisor, who has
.the tools and experience to help you develop these
calculations.
Take full advantage of your retirement savings
plans. Put in as much as you can afford to your
401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan
and every time you get a raise, increase your con-
tributions. Also, even if you have a 401(k), you're
probably still eligible to contribute to an IRA, another
excellent tax-advantaged retirement savings vehicle.
If you ever get to the point where you are makingg
out" on your both your 401 (k) and IRA, you may want
to look at other tax-advantaged investments, such as
fixed annuities.
Don't shortchange your retirement to help pay for
college. If you have children, you may want to help
them pay for college, which has gotten. increasingly
expensive over the past several years. But if you
decide to assist them by tapping into your retirement
accounts for example, by taking a loan against
your 401(k) you could seriously set back your
progress toward your retirement savings goals.
instead of raiding your 401(k), consider establishing
a tax-advantaged college savings account, such as
a Section 529 plan or a Coverdell Education Savings
Account.

National Save for Retirement Week will come and
go. But if you can use this event as a motivational
tool to help yourself develop some solid retirement
savings strategies, it will be a week worth remember-
ing.

Pleads Guilty To Distributing Crack Cocaine


A Springfield inan was convict-
ed today in federal court of distrib-
uting crack cocaine. United States
Attorney Michael J. Sullivan; War-
ren T. Bamford, Special Agent in
Charge of the Federal Bureau of In-
vestigation Boston Field Division;
William Fitchet, Springfield Police
Commissioner; Colonel Mark De-
laney, Superintendent of the Massa-
chusetts State Police; Chief Antho-
ny Scott, of the Holyoke Police De-
partment; and Michael Ashe, Hamp-


den County
Sheriff, announced today that
MELBIN BERRIOS, age 26, of 46
Ringgold Street, Springfield, MA,
pled guilty before U.S. District Judge
Michael A. Ponsor to distribution of
crack-cocaine.
At the plea hearing, the prosecu-
tor told the Court that had the case
proceeded to trial the' Government's
evidence would have proven that
BERRIOS distributed cocaine base
in the form of crack cocaine in Oc-


tober of 2007.
Judge Ponsor scheduled sen-
tencing for November 18, 2008.
BERRIOS faces up to forty years im-
prisonment, to be followed by at
least 4 years of supervised release
and a $2,000,000 fine.
The case was investigated by the
FBI's Western Massachusetts Gang
Task Force. It is being prosecuted
by Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul
Hart Smyth, Chief of Sullivan's
Springfield Branch Office. -


Florida Man Charged In Bribery Scheme
..gdy m


Dennis Alan Darling, 51, of
Redington Beach, Florida, has
been indicted by a federal grand
jury for bribing a public official.
The indictment is announced by
United States Attorney Alice H.
Martin and Carmen S. Adams,
Special Agent in Charge, Federal
Bureau of Investigation.
Darling was charged in a one-
count indictment filed today at U.
S. District Court in Birmingham.
The indictment charges Darling
with paying $400,000.00 to Michael
Cantrell, Director of- the Integrat-
ed Capabilities Management Di-
rectorate with the United States
Army Space and Missile Defense
Command, with the intent to in-
fluence the public official's ac-
tions on the funding of certain
government contracts. The maxi-
mum sentence for bribing a pub-


lic official is fifteen years in
prison and a $250,000.00 fine.
"The integrity of our govern-
ment contracting system is threat-
ened by those who would pay
bribes under the table to influ-
ence government actions. This of-
fice will aggressively prosecute
those threats," stated United
States Attorney Alice H. Martin.
"Public officials are not for
sale, and those who think they are
and attempt to 'buy' a public offi-
cial's influence will be investigat-
ed and prosecuted as much as any
public official who accepts a
bribe," stated Carmen S. Adams,
Special Agent in Charge, Federal
Bureau of Investigation.
Cantrell plead guilty on Janu-*
ary .14, 2008 to conspiracy to com-
mit bribery, bribery, and tax eva-
sion arising out of a procurement


fraud scheme involving contracts
with the United States Army
Space and Missile Defense Com-
mand, and is awaiting sentencing.
Special agents of the Federal
Bureau of Investigation, the U.S.
Army Criminal Investigation Di-
rectorate, Immigrations and Cus-
toms Enforcement, and the Inter-
nal Revenue Service worked to-
gether in the investigation of this
case. Assistant United States At-
torney Michael W. Whisonant is
prosecuting this case on behalf of
the United States.
Members of the public are re-
minded that the indictment con-
tains only charges. A defendant is
presumed innocent of the charges
and it will be the government's
burden to prove a defendant's
guilt beyond a reasonable doubt at
trial.


Convicted Criminal Charged In


$1 Million Mortgage Fraud Scheme

Eight co-defendants accused of helping defraud numerous financial
institutions in South Florida ~


Attorney General Bill
McCollum today an-
nounced that his office has
filed criminal charges
against an active mort-
gage fraud ring in South.
Florida. Nine individuals,
including the previously
convicted Boca Raton
ringleader, are charged
with criminal racketeer-
ing, conspiracy to commit
racketeering and multiple
counts of grand theft. The
criminal ring allegedly
used straw buyers and
shell companies to de-
fraud various lenders out
of at least $1 million.
The criminal: charges,
filed in the 17th Judicial
Circuit by the Attorney
General's Office of
Statewide Prosecution,
name ringleader Johnson
Cuffy and co-defendants
Lillia Cuffy, Cliff Johnson,
Joy Williams, Frumence
Paul, Hans Jeanty, Lloyd
Gelu, Paula Augustus and
Charles Reynolds. Author-
ities believe the targets of
the scheme were numer-
ous financial institutions
including SunTrust Bank,
Wachovia Bank, Bank of
America and General Mo-
tors Acceptance Corp.
(GMAC).
Using his co-defen-
dants as straw buyers,
Johnson Cuffy would ap-
ply for mortgages from the
various lenders, thereby
obtaining properties by
fraudulent means. Once
the mortgage loans were
secure, the co-defendants
would pose as the property
owners and request addi-
tional home equity lines of
credit from the lenders.
The participants kept
portions of the proceeds
and laundered the remain-
ing funds through non-ex-
istent companies to John-
son Cuffy, who used his


companies BlueKap Fi-
nancial and Capitol Invest-
ment Group to disguise
his financial dealings.
The case will be prose-
cuted by the Attorney
General's Office of
Statewide Prosecution and
was investigated by the
Department of Financial
Services' Division of In-
surance Fraud. Cuffy, who
was serving probation in
Broward County for sec-
ond-degree grand theft re-
lated to mortgage fraud,
has been taken into cus-
tody along with Lillia
Cuffy, Paula Augustus and
Charles Reynolds. The oth-
er co-defendants are being
sought on active criminal


warrants. If convicted,
they could face sentences

Almost an anniversary celebration,
Brenda's Styles, located at 883 W. Base
St. has been in business for over forty
years. Building a consis-
tent business while using
her talents to share her
styles, Brenda Hicks
makes certain her clien-
tele leave with a smile on
their face to match the
cuts that suits them best.
"I always knew I'd be a
hair-dresser," Hicks
shared. "My aunt was a
hairdresser when I was
growing up, and I just
loved the pictures of Aunt
Millie and all of the movie
stars she styled. It was an Brenda I
inspiration to me and I had each new c

helpful." -- I-
Loving what she does is just part of
what makes Brenda's Styles so appreci-
ated. Building a rapport with the clients
that come in, the cuts have followed the
stylist to each new building that Hicks
has moved to. Now, in the same place for
over twenty years, regulars in need of a
cute cut need not have to look around.
"Madison has been a large part of
my life for so long," Hicks stated. "I'm


H

from Jasper originally, but my cousin
moved here when we were both in the
third grade so I would come up and visit
all the time. My husband, Sammy was
raised here, so I have deep roots in
Madison."
Being known is helpful to
any hairdresser, but it is
Hick's noticeable love for
her community that
draws many in.
"I moved the salon at
one time to Lee, close to
the kids' school. It was
wonderful, even though I
moved, the clients on my
books followed, and stayed
with me. To keep a steady
business, especially in
this business, you need
icks looks at consistency. It's a stan-
ut with style dard."
Between standards, con-
sistency and just plain
style, Brenda's can't be beat, but with
over forty years in business, one in need
of a cut, might want to book in advance.
However, walk-ins are always welcome.
"I really like being a blessing to oth-
er people, and its such a blessing when
they walk out with a smile on their face.
They are all family."

this new recognition for Business Tins for Women understands the tasks that are tive listener will help vou grow W


women, the key td a happier
work life and more money from
jobs is to re-think how different
situations at work are ap-
proached.
Business Tips for Women
Rule #1: Find the Right
Job for You
In the past, women were of
the mindset to fit into the job
that they had. This work ethic is
no longer required with more
business doors being open for
women. It is important for
women to find that right job
compliments personality, values
and goals.
Focus on your abilities and


Rule #2: Find Solutions
Instead of Pointing Out
Problems
With every business prob-
lems will arise. It is only natural
to have challenging situations
and at times disagreement with
co-workers about a particular
task. Being a pessimist will
cause friction in the business.
Eventually others get tired of
being around a pessimist. Find
realistic solutions to problems
and help solve them instead of
creating new ones with pes-
simistic attitudes.
Business Tips for Women
Rule #3: Become an


set forth for projects and dead-
lines. Chiming in and always
having something to say is not
always the best policy in busi-
ness. When you do speak in the
business people will listen be-
cause you have something valu-
able to say instead of simply be-
ing one of those people that talk
to be heard.
It is important to speak up
with fresh ideas and solutions to
projects and tasks. The key is
not to monopolize the conversa-
tion or interrupt others. Make
sure that what you have to say
contributes to the business.
Learn to be empathetic to-


as a person and employee asset
to the business.,
Business Tips for Women
Rule #4: Flexibility
Yes, it is important to follow
the rules and ethics of the busi-
ness. However, there are times
that it is important to learn to
be flexible. Break routine in
your life. Realize that if you stay
with a business you are going to
have a flow of different co-work-
ers, supervisors and maybe even
job positions. Being able to fol-
low new rules and new expecta-
tions as changes happen within
the business will increase sur-
vivability within the business.

Wyche explained. I love

Achieving goals is the
main focus of Curves, in
more ways than one. Tak-
ing before and after pic-
tures of Curves members,
the physical change is ob-
vious. What stands out
slightly more subtlety per-
haps are the changes on

also strives to elevate the

read while they do their
routine," Wyche shared.
"So far, no one has seemed
to mind, as a matter of
fact, just the. opposite.
There have been many
times that a member has


approached me and said
'Wow, that scripture is just;
what I needed right now,
how did you know?' I did-
n't, I just pray that I will
continue to be lead in the
right direction, that I will
be able to provide what
women need, a nurturing
safe-haven that they can
come to and relax."
A unique approach to
physical fitness, Curves
has it all. Spiritual verse,
state-of the-art equip-
ment, friends who share
and a warm environment
where over-stressed
women from all over can
come to be the ones nur-
tured.
"I just don't know how
it can get any better,"
Wyche said. "I love what I
do, helping women who
are normally the ones
helping everyone else.
Now, its their turn."

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness- Month...




Spread the word


Facing Breast Cancer


With A Smile
By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
As breast cancer awareness month raises awareness of the dread disease, it is
through the brave souls that have faced this battle that one can learn the approach
that best suits the individual. Judy Bentley, not only a survivor,
but, a truly wonderfully spirited woman, may have just
found an important key of how to, not only face cancer,
but any obstacle in life's path.
Discovering that she had breast cancer in 1997,
Bentley quickly learned that what one says and thinks
has a direct effect on the outcome of any situation.
"I'll never forget," Bentley said of one of her
visits to a cancer specialist, "I was so angry (The
doctor) was going along, planning the schedule for
my visits. He said 'If we make it to that point...' and
I stopped him right there. You don't need to say that
to any cancer patient. You don't say 'if' you say
'when.' It is something you have ,to get through, it's
a choice."
r. Choosing to be strong spirited is in Judy's na-
Sture. A cheerful woman that glows for all that meet
her Bentley's fight was a battle fought with determi-
nat ion and ari unfaltering spirit. Supported by a host of
loved ones, Bentley's battle was not easy but it was vic-
torious, fought even, without chemotherapy
"It was a combination," Bentley shared of her mode of
survival. "between my husband at the time, my family and my
belief in God. I just figured it would be okay, regardless. I just had to keep as upbeat
as possible. You have to have a positive outlook."
Keeping upbeat is a staple in Bentley's life as anyone who has met her can tell. En-
thusiastic in everything she does, Bentley's is a soul that verily illuminates a room
when she enters. It is with this spirit that Bentley leaves such a lasting impression on
all those she encounters and lights the way for those who may have become lost them-
selves. It is for this very reason that she is so needed in this world.
"My friend knew what I was going through and finally called thfe doctor for me
and just handed me the phone. I'm so grateful that she did., Cancer isn't something
you want to mess around with: The sooner they treat you, the better."

Each year, thousands of women and even some men are diagnosed
with breast cancer. Usually, the earlier the disease is caught and treat-
ed, the better the patients chance of survival. The best way to detect
breast cancer early is through regular self-exams and mammography
screenings. Every woman should start having yearly mammograms at
age 40 or earlier if they are at risk.











,; .A






This October during National Breast Cancer Month, please join us in
getting the word out about the importance of early detection. Encour-
age all of the women in your life, and the men for that matter, to take
charge of their health and have routine exams and mammograms as
needed.

what's the scariest
thought of all?


One in nine


women


will develop
breast cancer
at some point
in their lives.


Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death
among women. 175,000 new cases are diagnosed each year.
43,300 women die annually from the disease. But breast
cancer doesn't have to be a death sentence. The best way to
beat breast cancer is to detect and treat it early.
Perform a self breast exam every month following your
menstrual period. Any changes, including pain, dimpling,
lumps or nipple discharge should be evaluated immediately
by a doctor.


You are at higher risk if:
* Your mother, sister or daughter has had


breast cancer.


* You began menstruating before the age
12 or completed menopause after 55.
* You had your first child after age 30.

Aeoia~j ?4Ved~4 .Vo~t J&txe4


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On that special day, every bride at one
point or another is bound get a case of
the nerves. Between the planning and
gathering, setting up and seating guests,
it is no wonder that included in the nor-
mal stress, the blushing bride may also
succumb to flights of imagination, espe-
bially if some of her elder wise women
have filled her ears with anecdotes of
past. So many superstitions, so lit-
tle time, these are a few that
may, if adhered to have the
bride back on the aisle.
breathing a little easi-
er as she "ties the
knot."
The term "ty-
ing the knot actu-
ally comes from
the tradition of
hand fasting, or
binding the
marrying cou-
ples hands to- -.
gether with
rope during the
ceremony to sig-
nify the bond
that is being
forged between the
couple. An old tradi-
tion that was fairly
widespread, "tying the
knot" is mostly performed
in neo-pagan ceremonies to-
day. In modern Christian cere-
monies, often the priest or minister will
substitute a sash laid over the couple
hands to represent the "tying."
According to Wendy Webb at Madison
Florist, flowers are a safe run on the wed-
ding day.
"Now of course, you want to avoid the
obvious, like poison ivy," Webb stated,
"but there aren't any others that are con-
sidered bad luck, at least nothing we
know of."
A bride need watch what she says,
though, especially during the bridal
shower, while everything she exclaims
while opening presents is said to come
back to her on her wedding night. This


could be either a very good or a very bad
thing.
Timing is everything, especially true
to wedding ceremonies. Beside specific
days with significance, the actual hour
holds luck for the lucky couple. It is said
that it is bad luck to be married while the
hands of the clock are on their way down,
as this will cause the marriage to always
be moving "downhill." Instead, plan the
ceremony while the hands are moving up-
ward, towards the hour.
For those whose
special day is planned
and the weather
S takes a turn, wor-
Sy not, for this is
actually said to
be a sign of
favorable
luck. A little
o shower is
,an added
. bonus, a
gift from
the heavens
e ffor the wed-
,. to-be.
.: 'As everyone
knows, the
penny in the
bride's shoe is
said to bring
wealth to the mar-
ried couple. This is
an often skipped part
of the adage "something
old, something new..." howev-
er for those looking to stack their bets
when it comes to love and marriage, a lit-
tie copper is said to go a long way.
S Maybe, most important of all is, do
not drop the wedding ring. This is a clear
omen as it means the marriage will not
last.
All luck aside;.heeding warnings and
omens of the past is just another way of
following tradition. The most important
part to any wedding is; simply, bring in
all the love a heart can muster, and luck
will come to those in love. Congratula-
tions and have a happy one!

HEALTH


Good Clean Fun


- Healthy Classroom


Tips


After only 30 minutes
in the classroom, children
can touch up to 300 sur-
faces quickly spreading
germs via hot spots like
keyboards, pencil sharp-
eners and water foun-
tains. To help battle
schoolroom germs that
can make kids sick, teach-.,
ers often clean and disin-
fect their own classrooms.
In fact, a majority of
teachers have to buy their
own cleaning supplies.
This year Clorox and
the PTA are teaming up to
help classrooms stay
healthier by encouraging
parents to get involved by
organizing cleaning and


wellness supply stock-up
events as well as disinfect-
ing parties at their child's
school.
"Cleaner classrooms
are smarter classrooms,"
says the PTA president,
Jan Harp Domene. "We
think it's important for
parents to help teachers
keep classrooms healthi-
er."

Here's what you can do
to help teachers and'
students have a healthi-
er, happier school year:

Stock Up: Host a
clean-up and disinfecting
donation drive* to help


give your local school a
boost in thefight against
the germs that can-or-may
cause colds and flu. You
can help keep the school
stocked all year long.
Parents Pitch In:
Hold a clean-up event at
your school* to get the en-
tire community in on the
effort to keep classrooms
clean. Everyone can join
in on the fun!
ABC Sneeze: Keep
tissues,handy and teach '
kids how to blow their
noses early, instead of do-
ing the icky sleeve swipe.
The key is tossing tissues
in the trash right away to.
help keep germs at bay


Stress Is A Killer,



Not Just A Bummer


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
There are similarities between me-
chanical systems and human systems
that are useful in appreciating the power-
ful effects of stress. Every system, hu-
man or mechanical, has limits and re-
quirements for functioning effectively.
Each system operates within limits for
demands, pressures and the tensions
placed upon it.
The electrical circuits in your-house,
for instance, are capable of handling a
limited amount of power. When more en-
ergy is demanded than is safe to handle,
the circuit is broken or a fuse is blown. If
the water pressure in your plumbing is
higher than it is designed to handle, a fit-
ting will eventually leak or burst. Vehi-
cles, too, if run hard all the time and
proper maintenance is neglected will
start giving trouble and deteriorate
quickly Keep neglecting it and it will
breakdown completely and force costly
repairs.
Just like machines, human systems
have limits and breaking points and re-
quire maintenance. Increase pressure
and neglect proper maintenance and it
will also deteriorate and eventually
breakdown.
Inappropriately handled stress can be
devastating, lowering resistance and
making people more vulnerable to illness
and disease. The increased inner pres-
sure can cause health to deteriorate, re-
sulting in a variety of serious physical
problems. Stress victims can become
emotional cripples and physiologically
old and run down long before their time.
And stress can cause a loss of not only
health, but also loss of jobs, loss of fami-
lies, even loss of life.
The following are the more common
aspects of stress and are offered to begin
the process of stress awareness. Future


articles will be devoted to stress solu-
tions.

Physiological & Behavioral
Increased heart rate Rise in blood
pressure Dryness of mouth & throat -
Sweating Tightness of chest -
Headache Nausea, vomiting Indiges-
tion Diarrhea Trembling, twitch-
ing Grinding of teeth Insomnia -
Anorexia Fatigue Slumped pos-
ture Pain, tightness in neck and back
muscles Urinary frequency Missed
menstrual cycle Reduced interest in
sex Hyperventilation Accidents.and
accident proneness Altered food in-
take Poor concentration Disinterest

with others Bickering Smoking -
Use of alcohol and drugs Increased use
of sarcasm Tendency to cry easily -
Nightmares Complaining, criticizing

Smiles For A Lifetime


Keeping Teeth ar
Is it better -to have the perfect smile at
a job. interview or at your wedding?
Which is more important: a clean body or
a clean mouth? And if women could
share their sink with a Hollywood hunk
while brushing their teeth, who would
they choose?
The makers of Arm & Hammer Ad-
vance White Toothpaste recently con-
ducted a survey to uncover the answers
to these and other fun oral care ques-
tions. Some of the most interesting tid-
bits include:
"You're Hired!" Trumps "I Do!" Three
out of four respondents want their smile
to be its best at a job interview, while only
half vowed that they needed .a-sparkling
smile for their own wedding.
First Impressions .on First Dates.
While .the nose, knows that body odor
ranks first on the list of biggest turn-offs
during a first date; bad breath came in a
very close second.
Tooth Whitening is
"White Hot." Six out of ten
respondents have taken
steps to whiten their teeth
using over-the-counter
drug store products, with
toothpaste being the most
popular whitening product
purchased. :
Those who are whiten-
ing their teeth need to re,
member that whitening
doesn't necessarily mean Questik
that teeth 'are being well
cared for. Whitening tooth- with my k
pastes need to contain fluo-

fight plaque and tartar.
When choosing any tooth-
paste, buy one that:

*Delivers fluoride to
fight cavities
S'Cleans away plaque
*Provides gentle clean-
ing
*Is one that you will
use regularly

Taking good care of
teeth does more than make
a pretty smile. Good oral
health can improve overall
health by cutting the risk
of heart disease, diabetes
and stroke.
For a truly healthy
smile, listen to mom. She
and the dentist were right:
brushing at least twice a
day, flossing and seeing a
dentist twice a year are the
real keys to good oral
health.
So just which Holly-
wood hunk's smile makes
women want to share a
sink with them?
George Clooney and his ar-
resting smile secured the
top spot, while Matthew
McCohaughey clinched
second, and Brad Pitt took
third.

n: What do my teeth have to do
idneys?


Answer: I don't give much thought to my
kidneys except at Half time at Gator games
when I am in line at the men's room. That is
when they need to be in good working order.

Recent research released by the American
Academy of Periodontics suggests that
taking care of. your gums and teeth could
help the kidneys, In the study, conducted at
Case Western Reserve University, endentu-
lism (tooth loss) was found to be significantly
associated with Chronic Kidney Disease,
indicating that oral care may play a role in
reducing the prevalence of chronic kidney
disease in the U.S. population. The
researches suggest that untreated inflam-
mation caused by gum disease could
worsen kidney disease for those with a
family history of kidney trouble'.

The 2008 Fall Festival was held at Lee Elementary
School Friday night, October 17, where, as in previous
years, lots of faces from past and present came together
to celebrate a proud heritage,of school, family and com:
munity. In addition to a visit from a recently retired
dear friend of the school, children of all ages enjoyed
rides, prize booths, food and festivities until the sun
went down.
Thanks and congratulations were shared by the fac-
ulty, staff and volunteers who worked hard to ensure
success of the event, raising critical funds along with
the laughter and smiles, whichreally exploded when
Larry Alderman stepped up as the showcase of the gath-
ering to kiss a pig as the finale to an impressive
fundraising campaign, Alderman retired as Principal
of Lee Elementary only a few weeks ago and his over-
whelming popularity was very evident when he arrived,
as crowds of kids, parents and friends rushed to greet
him.
A few fan favorites among the activities were the
Jail booth that corralled some noteworthy names, in-
cluding Superintendent of Schools Lou Miller, and the
dunking booth that had both kids and adults taking aim
at a number of hecklers who braved the hot seat in the
booth. Ofcourse, other landmarks like Bart Alford's gi.-
ant slide and the Goldfish booth were packed from the
time the festival opened at 5 pm.
Inside the school cafeteria, the cakewalk and cake
auction.were also a success, as local candidates from the
upcoming election bid generously for the scrumptious
cakes. Lee Volunteer Fire Department Chief Reese
Thomas called the cake auction while others enjoyed
hamburgers, hotdogs, pizza and nachos that were being
sold in the school kitchen.,
The "Little But Proud" Town of Lee is approaching
its 100th Birthday this spring, as Mayor Ernestine Kin-
sey has reminded everyone in preparation for what's ex-
pected to be the best homecoming day yet. If the Fall
Festival was any indicator of the crowds to be expected
for that milestone gathering, the Mayor will be a very
happy lady This reporter, who also has children at Lee
Elementary, looks forward and joins a grateful commu-
nity in sending kudos to everyone who made the Fall
Festival fun for all ages.

Scott Thomas Memorial Ride Honors Loss Of Community Friend


Greene Publi
Bikers roll out of the Lee VFD Firehouse for the Scott Thomas Memorial Ride on Saturday, October 11.


hael Curtis, October


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Second Annual Scott Thomas Memorial Ride
was held October 11, starting at the Lee Volunteer Fire
Department located on North East CR 255, just north of
US 90 adjacent to Lee City Hall. Registration began at 8
a.m. with delicious sausage biscuits and the best cup of
coffee available anywhere. The ride kicked off at 9 a.m.
and concluded at noon with over 50 bikers joining in the
ride.
The ride covered an 86-mile course that passed each
of the firehouses in Madison County. Thomas was a vol-
unteer firefighter in Lee, where his father, Reese
Thomas, in currently Chief and mother, Cindy, is a cor-
nerstone of the Ladies Auxiliary.
During the ride, a garage sale was held at the fire
department to raise additional funds. The Lee Volun-
teers, especially their Ladies Auxiliary, have become ex-
ceptional fundraisers over the years proving that "ne-
cessity is the mother of invention," because they always
find a way
I Scott Thomas is very much missed by the Lee
Community He was considered a friend of all who had
the pleasure of meeting him. Organizers thanked par-
ticipating bikers and a supportive community for, hon-
oring Scott Thomas and the Lee VFD in such an excep-
tional way.

Honey Has A Fall Festival


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
All little honeys are in-
vited down to the Fall Fes-
tival at Honey's Day Care,
October 30. A fun time for
tots, there will be an as-
sortment of Halloweeny
activities to keep those lit-
tle eyes popping and teeny
squeals coming. Bring the
babes and grab a hot dog
after the haunted house, if
you dare!
A fun Fall Festival is
planned at -Honey's Day
Care on October 30. From
five until seven, located at
587 SW Bunker Street,
there will be dunking
booths, ring tosses, apple


bobbing and a bouncy
house, plus lots of other
autumn style treats for the
little tricksters of the sea-
son. With more thrills
than chills, Honey has
geared the fun from ages
one to fifteen.
There will also be a
costume contest for those
that come decked for Hal-
loween, so get those wee
ghosties ready, there's a
haunted house, too. For
those that scare easily, not
to worry, there will be hot
dogs and hamburgers to
distract the attention away
from the things that go
bump in the night.

Dabra Lofton gets the incoming freshman on the right track with the "Commitment
to Graduate" program she coordinates in addition to her role as a guidance counselor.'


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
As the new school year heats up at
Madison County High School, faculty and
staff are hard at work to ensure the goal
of graduating young men and women
who are ready for college, vocational
training or employment. Regardless of.
the next step, every student deserves an
opportunity to acquire the knowl-
edge and skills to succeed.
According to Principal Ben
Killingsworth, the Southern
Regional Education Board
continues to emphasize a .,
program titled "High
Schools That Work." Gen-
erally speaking, the pro- .
gram is devoted to provid-
ing a framework for im-
provement and readiness. .
Of course, to make these
initiatives a reality, there
must be school, leadership
dedicated to making it happen.
At MCHS, Robin Hill and Dabra
Lofton are role models for
that dedication, working dai- ROBI
ly in support of exceptional
student achievement.
Robin Hill has been with the Madison
County School District for two decades.
In that time, few have established a
stronger reputation for going above and
beyond job description to "do whatever it
takes," according to Superintendent of
Schools Lou Miller.
"Robin's knowledge of high school
curriculum, combined with her tireless
work ethic, -makes her a key part of the
glue that keeps the high school running
smoothly. Ben and I can't thank her
enough for all she does," Miller noted.
Killingsworth agrees. "Robin's in-
credible efforts may go unnoticed by
many because she works in the back-
ground where her commitment to make
MCHS successful is phenomenal. She
works relentless hours and her skills as


N


Assistant Principal in charge of Curricu-
lum is in a league by itself," he explained.
Hill and husband Geoff, who also
works at the high school as band director,
live in Madison with their young son
Joshua.
Although a comparative newcomer,
Dabra Lofton is quickly making her mark
on the high school as well. As the ninth
Em grade guidance counselor, which
also includes a part of the twelfth
grade, Lofton guides a program
titled "Commitment to Gradu-
ate," which begins with an
orientation presented by up-
per school students and lat-
er reinforced by banners,
promotional tools and sup-.
port designed to create a
s, student commitment that,
will carry through to gradu-
ation.
In only the second full
year, Lofton's impact hasgar-
nered praise from peers and ad-
ministrators alike. Miller noted'
that Lofton represents the
HILL best in educators, having
come back to Madison Coun-
ty following college, representing an es-
sential ingredient for school success in
Madison County, that ingredient being
that its best and brightest return home.
Killingsworth also praised Lofton's ef-
forts, saying, "Dabra has taken the ninth
graders and really set them on the road to
succeed. She is a role model and a true ex-
ample of excellence in education."
Of course, Hill and Lofton are not
alone in their commitment, as dozens of
faculty and staff, as well as parents and
family, are needed for student success.
Along the way, as these role models lead
by example, landmarks that read, "We
came from Madison County High School
and we are ready to show what we can
do," should mark that course.

Special From The Jefferson Journal
One of the newest teaching staff
at Aucilla Christian Academy is Art
Teacher, Suzie Floyd.
She attended Florida State Uni-
versity at the studio/fine art studio
in painting and sculpture, and her
past experience includes being a
working artist.
She said her interest in art came
at a very early age, "I have been
painting ever since I could hold a
brush."
Floyd. finds her biggest chal-
lenge is having enough time to, do
everything she wants to do, and her
biggest frustration, having enough
time to do everything she needs to
do.
The main objective I hope to
achieve this year is instilling an in-

She was born in Miami and has
lived in Ft. Myers, Austin, TX, and
Tallahassee. What she looks for-
ward to most this year is creating a
multitude of art, and the way she
wishes to be remembered by her stu-
dents is having been a positive and
supportive influence and showing
them that they are all creative indi-
viduals.
Floyd describes herself as being
a free spirit and considers her
strong points to be loving life, her
daughter, her work (art), her love of
nature and caring of animals, 'her

all, God.
Her hobbies include raising
Peafowl, longhorn cattle, horseback
riding, and working in the garden.
Her husband's name is Bobby,

who attends sixth grade at Aucilla.
Floyd's favorite quote is, "Follow

Madison County High School


By Laurie Smith, Senior
Madison County High School
After planning my schedule for my
senior year I stumbled into a class that
targeted promoting Career and Technical
Education, and other than working on be-
ing a program complete I knew very lit-
tle about Career and Technical Educa-
tion. So I set out to research, and compile
a way to make everyone aware of what
our schools have to offer. Part of my re-
search included an interview with Mrs.
Jodie Price, a Career Pathways Facilita-
tor, and thanks to her cooperation, and
wisdom I can now help spread the word.
Career and Technical Education, also
sometimes called Vocational Classes, is a
group of programs offered in secondary
and post-secondary schools that help stu-
dents in fields they are pursuing. The
courses are often started in high school
and can range from Agricultural to Busi-
ness, and carry on to post-secondary
schools such as North Florida Communi-
ty College. At Madison County High
School several programs are offered:
Agricultural Education, Business Educa-
tion, Criminal Justice, Fashion Design,
Early Childhood Education, and Health.
These classes typically begin in ninth or
tenth grade and are completed as a se-
nior. From these classes students can
learn skills for jobs they are pursuing.
As well as job skills, students can re-
ceive other benefits thanks to an articu-
lation agreement. An articulation agree-
ment is a written legal document be-
tween secondary and post-secondary
schools. The agreements offer a transfer
of some high school credit to college
credit, so that when a student completes a
program they can receive some college
credit. There are also scholarships of-
fered through Career and Technical pro-
grams. One of the requirements for the
seventy-five percent, Bright Futures Gold
Seal Scholarship is the completion of a
Career and Technical Education pro-
gram. The Health program also offers
some scholarships to program com-
pleters.
Along with scholarships program


completers are also given the opportuni-
. ty in some programs to be certified in dif-
ferent fields. Health students can take the
Certified Nursing Assistant certification
test, Early Childhood Education students
can receive forty hours of Department of
Children and Family Services certifica-
tion, and Business students can complete
the Microsoft test.
These classes, don't just affect the stu-
dents of our surrounding schools; they
affect the community as well. While stu-
dents do get lots of practice in their cho-
sen field in the classroom, these pro-
grams have a desire to have strong com-
munity service, and have current con-
tacts within the community; health care
programs allowing clinical, Pre-K pro-
grams giving chores to Early Childhood
Education students, and the sponsorship
of organizations like Future Farmers of
America and Family Career and Commu-
nity Leaders of America.
It is through these experiences that
students gain valuable workplace skills
not able to be created in the classroom.
The Career and Technical programs need
more of this kind of community support.
So I urge all community members to get
involved with Career and Technical Edu-
cation programs. Call a teacher a set up a
time to come speak with students about
what you do, or set up a time when stu-
dents can come and help. Members of the
community should also know that these
classes exist and are willing to help in
anyway, as long as it can relate to their
class.
If you have heard of these classes you
might think they are the same as when
you were in school, but actually over the
past five years the classes have changed a
lot. Agricultural Business no longer only
herds cattle, but they also learn manage-
ment procedures for owning a ranch.
Fashion Design is not just a sewing class;
students now use computer programs to
create their own design and then learn
how to assemble the pattern. Keep an
open eye for upcoming articles on all of
the Madison County High School Career
and Technical Education classes.

Fran Hunt
Special From
The Monticello News
During the course of the
weekend, the Aucilla Christ-
ian Academy cross country
teams did not officially com-
pete. in any trials, however,
they did enjoy a weekend at
St. George Island for a volun-
tary practice session.
While there, the Oyster
Run 5-K was hosted, and run-
ners opted to run unofficially
just to stay in shape and to try
to step up their times a notch,
which several of the runner
did accomplish.
"I'm impressed with
their times, they did great,",
said Coach Dan Nennstiel.
"It was an unusual course
with a turn around at the
halfway mark, so during the
first half of the race, the
wind was at our backs, and
during the second half of the
race, we .were running
against the wind, which
made it feel a lot like running
up hill."
He added that it was his
weekend, that he took on and
ran against the time of his
son, fourth grade team man-
ager Gatlin Nennstiel, the lit-'
tle athlete, who should be
dubbed "Greased lightning."
For the first half of the
race, Gatlin was so far ahead
of me I could barely see him,
but I conserved more energy
than he did and I managed to


beat him by ten seconds,"
said Dan.
Following the race, the
ACA athletes enjoyed a cook-
out and a game of Frisbee, the
boys against the girls, and the
girls actually took the win.
Though times were unof-
ficial, Coach Nennstiel did
document finish times. Run-
ning for the Lady Warriors,
Michaela Roccanti finished
with 22:25, an average of 7:12
per mile; Caroline Mueller
finished with 28:07, an aver-
age of 9:02 per mile; Angela
McCune missed her personal
record by one second with
25:28, an average of 8:10 per
mile; Chelsea Snodgrass set a
personal record with 27:14, an
average of. 8:45 per mile; and
Hannah Haselden finished
with 34:40, an average of 11:06
per mile. I
For the Warriors, Coach
Dan Nennstiel finished with


21:13, an average of 7:04 per
mile; Carson Nennstiel fin-
ished with 24:41, an average of
7:56 per mile; team manager
Gatlin Nennstiel finished
with 21:23, an average of 6:52
per mile; Russell Fraleigh fin-
ished with 20:27, setting as
personal record with an aver-
age of 6:33 per mile.
Ricky Finlayson set a per-
sonal record with 22:12, an av-
erage of 7:07 per mile; team
manager Ian Hogg finished
with 22:43, setting a personal
record with an average of 7:17
per mile; and Jay Dickey fin-
ished with 24:28, an average of
7:50 per mile.
There are no meets
scheduled for this weekend,
so the teams will continue
working'and improving their
times preparing for their next
meet, Oct. 25 at the Panhan-
dle Championship in Marian-
na.
