New Company Policy

All the hoopla going on in the press about Obama's
presidency is somewhat confusing to most people. Just
how will Obama change all these things he wants to do? I
finally figured out how my office will change, I called it
"New Company Policy"
Notice to All Employees
As of November 5,2008, when President Obama is of-
ficially elected into office; our company will instill a few
new policies which are in keeping with his new, inspir-
ing issues of change and fairness:
1. All salespeople will be pooling their sales commis-
sions into a common pool that will be divided equally be-
tween all of you. This will serve to give those of you
who are underachieving a "fair shake."
2. All hourly employees will be pooling their wages,
including overtime, into a common pool, dividing it
equally amongst yourselves. This -will help those who
are "too busy for overtime" to reap the rewards from
those who have more spare time and can work extra
hours.
3. All top management will now be referred to as
"the government." We will not participate in this "pool-
ing" experience because the law doesn't apply to us.
4. The "government" will give eloquent speeches to
all employees every week, encouraging its workers to
continue to work hard "for the good of all."
5. The employees will be thrilled with these new
policies because it's "good to spread the wealth." Those
of you who have underachieved will finally get
an opportunity; those of you who have worked hard and
had success will feel more "patriotic."
6. The last few people who were hired should clean
out their desks. Don't feel bad though, because Presi-
dent Obama will give you free healthcare, free handouts,
free oil for heating your home,' free food stamps, and
he'll let you stay in your home for as long as you want
even if you can't pay your mortgage. If you appeal di-
rectly to our democratic congress, you might even get a
free flat screen TV and a coupon for free haircuts
(shouldn't all Americans be entitled to nice looking
hair?)!!!
Don't you feel so much better?
If for any reason you are not happy with the new
policies, you may want to rethink your vote on Novem-
ber 4th.

Happy Birthday, Daddy
Yesterday, October 28th marked my Dad's 70th birthday
So, on this special occasion I just wanted to take the time to
say "Happy Birthday Daddy."
My Dad has always been an inspiration in my life.
From him I learned how to work, how to be honest, and how
to save a penny
We were awakened with the risingsun to go work on the
farm, and we worked hard. 'If we weren't on the farm we
were at the newspaper, and we worked hard. We were


"Me and my Daddy" with my two daughters, Cheltsie
(left) and Brooke (right).
taught that "It doesn't rain on Harvey Greene Hill" and we
worked rain or shine. If we had friends over for the day, then
they worked too.'
My-best friend from high school, Susan Morgan, and I
still laugh at the fact that we'were the only two friends that
didn't mind spending the night at each other's houses over
the weekend. No matter which.house we were at we got up
and worked the next day My Dad would put her to work, and
her Mom would put me to work.
Above our basketball goal was a sign that said, "Quitters
Never Win and Winners Never Quit." That same sign now
hangs above the doorway of my Madison newspaper office.
We were taught to never say the word "can't." If we said
"can't" then we had to do it (whatever it was) until we ac-
complished the task. Then he would say, "See, you CAN do
it if you put your mind to it."
Daddy always taught us that there is nothing worse than
a thief or a liar. We got in trouble when we did things wrong
- but, oh how worse the end result was if we lied about it.
One time my parents had taken several of the grand-
children to Disney World for vacation. Upon returning to the
motel room that evening it was discovered that one of my
(very young at the time) nephews (I won't call names) had
stolen a ring from the Pirates of the Caribbean gift store.
-After several spankings (I'mr sure) Daddy loaded him
back up in the car, drove clear back across Orlando, walked
back up to the front gate of Disney World, made (my
nephew) explain what he had done to the security
guards/entrance keepers and apologize to them. They then"
walked clear back over to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride
so that (my nephew) could explain what he had done, apolo-
gize, and return the ring.
We were always taught '"A man is only as good as his
word." Honesty and integrity were instilled at a very young
age.
From him I grew my backbone, inherited his business
mind and his life's aggression to always strive for better.
The ability to save a penny was taught early in life.
However, I must admit that
E WEEK my mother taught me the
most important lesson if
E W EK ,Daddy said no (to that beau-
tiful doll I wanted so badly)
Christmas?" all I had to do was go hug his
neck, kiss him and tell him
how much I loved him - -
Sand I got the doll!!!)
So, on this important day -
I just want to say, "Happy
Birthday, Daddy! I Love
I You!"'
I'm not able to end this
column without also adding
the fact that October 28th
also marked the 46th wed-
ding anniversary of my par-
ents. 46 years and counting.
Their love for each other
has shown through the
years and their love for us,
their children, is still con-
/ tinuing to shower down
upon us even into our adult-
hood. "Happy Anniversary
axt week's question: and I love both of you very
inphs u yaw." much!"
Until then....see you
mWber 3. around the town.

Electoral College


After the 2000
election where Al
Gore won the National
popular vote by
about half a mil- S security
lion but lost the
electoral vote to Joe Boyles
George Bush 271- Guest Colum
266, a friend of
mine complained
and asked this
q u estio n, i o
"Shouldn't we select our president from
the fellow who gets the most votes?"
My answer was supportive and
straight forward: "This isn't really a
problem, and we know how to fix it. All
- you need to do is amend the United States
Constitution and this process is clearly
laid out in Article V. It requires a two-
thirds vote for the amendment by both
houses of Congress and ratification from
three-quarters (38) of the state legisla-
tures."
And then I added, "Lots of luck, be-
cause I can think of at least 13 small
states that would be written off the na-
tional radar screen were it not for the
Electoral College, and because of that,
would oppose a Constitutional change."
Which states am I referring to how
about Wyoming, Montana, the Dakotas,
Idaho, New Hampshire, Vermont, etc?
Without the Electoral College (cov-
ered in Article II of the Constitution), a
presidential candidate would concen-
trate his efforts on the states with the
largest population. Very small popula-
tion-based states such as those I just men-
tioned would be written off the political
map. More than half our population is
concentrated in just 11 states.
The Electoral College works this way:
each state is given an electoral vote for
the number of Congressional representa-
tives (one for each congressman and sen-
ator) it possesses. Senator Obama's state
of Illinois gets 21 electoral votes while
Governor Palin's Alaska gets three. With
a couple added for US territories, there
are a total of 538 electoral votes, so the
winning ticket needs to get a minimum of
270. Nearly all the states have "winner
takes all" rules, so if Senator Obama
wins Florida by even a handful of votes
like George Bush did in 2000, he will re-
ceive all of our 27 electoral votes.
Some may call this argument outdat-
ed thinking, but the fact of the matter is
that during the 1787 Constitutional Con-
vention in Philadelphia, the large state
versus small state argument was one of
the predominant topics. Back then, there
were only 13 states. The large states were
Virginia, Pennsylvania,' and New York.
Small states were Georgia, Rhode Island
and New Hampshire.


Sure, the
actors have
t changed over
-, the past two cen-
tries. Our most
populous states
of California
and J'exas
weren't even
dreamed of way
back then nor
were the small
population Great Plains states. But the
basic argument of small state versus
large state that predominated the debate
in 1787 is still with us.
Another important factor in 1787 was
federalism and the founders addressed
this by establishing an Electoral College
with a place f6r each..state,.Certainly-,thl
large states would have'h greater say and
that is still true California has 55 elec-
toral votes while Wyoming has three -
but the small states would not be ignored.
Does the vision of the founding fa-
thers in 1787 hold up today in the 21st
Century? I think it does. Consider tiny
New Hampshire with' barely a million
residents. If we only considered the pop-
ular vote, New Hampshire would be; ,
mere blip on the radar screen and dis-
missed with less than one percent of the
popular vote. But since New Hampshire
is a "swing state" that can go either De-
mocrat or Republican, its' four electoral
votes are important and both the McCain
and Obama campaigns are focusing on
the Granite State.
These two issues large state versus
small state and federalism are clearly
articulated in James Madison's incredi-
ble notes from the convention and dis-
cussed at length in The Federalist Papers
authored by Hamilton, Madison and Jay.
For any modern day judge to say this is
ambiguous and worthy of judicial inter-
pretation smacks at revisionism and can
easily be refuted by any constitutional
scholar. We know what the founders said
and why they said it. To change now
would go against the original intent of
the Constitution and require an amend-
ment, in accordance with Article V It is
just that simple.
The more I study the Constitution,
the more I'm amazed at how relevant
these 18th Century ideas are today.
Those 55 men who met in Philadelphia,
led by Madison's namesake, were an
amazing cast of characters. As a group,
they were nothing short of brilliant.
What they gave us has. stood the test of
*time over 221 years. We have amended it
27 times to improve it and bring it up to
date, but it remains history's best exam-
ple on how to establish a representative
democracy and secure the rights of man.

McCollum Warns Floridians About Child Identity Theft t


In recognition of Na-
tional Protect Your Identi-
ty Week, Attorney General
Bill McCollum issued a
consumer advisory warn-
ing Floridians about the
crime of child identity
theft. The Attorney Gener-
al cautioned parents to be
vigilant in protecting
their children's personal
information and to report,


any potential ID theft to
law enforcement. Al-
though statistics are not
kept on identity theft vic-
tims under 18, estimates
indicate the crime impacts
more than 500,000 children
nationally each year.
"Often, a child and his
or her parents won't real-
ize the theft has occurred
until the child is an adult,"


said Attorney General Mc-
Collum. "I believe this
crime happens far more
frequently than is report-
ed, and parents need to
take steps to ensure their
child is protected."
A recent study con-
ducted by the nonprofit
Identity Theft Resource
Center found children are
most .often targeted be-


tween the ages of zero to
five years old. Unfortu-
nately, the ID thieves may
often be the parents them-
selves, or relatives who
have access to a child's so-
cial security number. A
common practice associat-
ed with this crime is for
adults to their child's so-
cial security number to se-
cure utilities for a home.
This generates credit
card offers in the child's
name, and parents or
guardians
may sometimes then open
lines of credit.
Technology also plays
a role in the ID theft of
children. Children who
use the internet some-
times post personal infor-
mation online, which can
be accessed through a
wireless network. Chil-
dren can also become vic-
tims of "phishing" scams,
defined as an attempt by
an unscrupulous person to
obtain sensitive informa-
tion such as usernames,
passwords or credit card
information via email by
pretending to be a trust-
worthy entity, like a bank
or government agency
Tips to protect chil-
dren from identity theft in-
clude:
Try to limit the use of
your child's Social Securi-
ty number (SSN) and do


not carry around your
child's Social Security
card in your purse or wal-
let.
Make sure the child's
school ID card does not re-
quire a date of birth or so-
cial security number.
Watch for mail that
may. come in your child's
name. If he or she receives
credit card offers, you
should investigate the
source.
Warn your child
about giving out their per-
sonal information while
online and monitor the
websites your child visits.
Penalties for parents
or guardians convicted of
child ID theft are stronger
than for those convicted of
the ID theft of an adult.
The parent or
guardian could face a
prison term of up to 15
years.
Parents who believe.
their child's identity has
been stolen should immedi-
ately file a report with local
police or the law enforce-
ment agency where the'
crime took place, if known.
They should also contact all
three credit bureaus sepa-
rately and report the id
theft of a minor. Con-
sumers who believe they
may be victims of identity
theft or fraud may contact
the Attorney General's
fraud hotline at 1-866-9-NO-
SCAM (1-866-966-7226) or
file a complaint online at

tion on Saturday, October
25.
According to a Madi-

port filed by Sgt. William
Greene, officers were dis-
patched to a large fight in-
volving several subjects in
Hilltop Apartments. Upon
arrival for subjects, Jawa-

all involved in a physical

Conflicting stories
made it hard to discern
how the fight started.
There has been an on-

Gadsden Gang Members Get Prison
Sentences For Criminal Racketeering
~ Two brothers convicted by Orange County
jury in September ~
Attorney General Bill McCollum announced that two
members of a violent "hybrid" gang in Gadsden County
have been sentenced to prison after being convicted by an
Orange County jury on criminal charges of racketeering
and conspiracy to commit racketeering.
The two men are among seven who were arrested ear-
lier this year during a coordinated operation by the At-
torney General's Office of Statewide Prosecution, the
Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Office and the State Attorney's Office for
the Second Judicial Circuit. All seven were prosecuted by
the Attorney. General's Office of Statewide Prosecution.
Terrance Shorter, 28, received a 45-year sentence for
racketeering and conspiracy to traffic 400 grams or more
of cocaine; his 33-year old brother, Daltonica Shorter, re-
ceived a 15-year sentence for racketeering and conspiracy
to commit racketeering. The brothers' sentences were en-
hanced and they will have to register as gang members
under the requirements of Florida's new anti-gang
statute. The brothers were convicted in September. Co-de-
fendant Aaron Thomas, 29, will be retried at a later date
after a jury deadlocked over his case.
The gang had been classified by investigators as a "hy-
brid gang," one which operates locally without national
ties. Hybrid gang members rarely exhibit the traditional
gang signs and colors, but develop their own signs and tat-
toos to identify themselves. They are often just as danger-
ous if not more destructive than traditional gangs and
hold smaller communities hostage under their violent
and terrifying influence.
Quintarius Shorter, 25; Gabriel James, 26; Ladipo
Chad Bethea, 33; and Laterrance Parks, 27, are currently
awaiting trial under the same indictment. Gabriel James
is also-facing separate first-degree murder charges in
Gadsden County The case was prosecuted in the Ninth
Judicial Circuit because some of the narcotics-related
charges were related to criminal activity in Orange
County.
The arrests marked the end of a lengthy investiga-
tion into a series of murders in Gadsden County. During
the course of the murder investigations, evidence of nu-
merous other crimes, such as home invasion robberies
drug trafficking and vari- PEOPLE WHO READ
ous other violent crimes,
was developed and led to NEWSPAPERS ARE
the indictments. The inves-
tigation identified the al-
leged gang members as in-
dividuals connected to
widespread criminal activi-
ty including several mur-
ders, statewide drug traf-AN
picking and witnesses tam-
pering. The 18th Statewide
Grand Jury issued indict-
ments for the men in Febru-
ary st newspapers

day and we work to instill these values
in our children. I will ensure the secu-
rity, integrity, and accuracy of every
vote.
Elections should be administered in
an unbiased manner. My decision to
run with no party affiliation is primari-
ly based on my belief that the office
should be politically neutral. Citizens
are concerned about everything from
potential mistakes and accidents in the
process to outright fraud or suppres-
sion. -The lack of public confidence in
our elections system is largely due to
party influence and media hype. I plan
to restore public confidence in the sys-
tem by consistently conducting elec-
tions in a fair and honest manner with-
out bias or party influence.
How many of you have purchased a
new automobile, computer or home ap-
pliance recently? How much time did
you spend researching this item? Did
you spend more time researching the
item than the candidates? I know I have


been guilty of this. The right to vote is a
cornerstone of any Democracy, but vot-
ers have a responsibility that accompa-
nies that right -- the responsibility to be-
come informed on the candidates .and
the issues. As your Supervisor of Elec-
tions, I will use a variety of approaches
to increase voter awareness. I will pro-
vide high levels of civic and political in-
formation and educational resources
about candidates and issues.
, The primary duties of the Supervi-
sor of Elections includes administering
all elections in the county, qualifying
candidates, maintaining voter registra-
tion lists, hiring and training poll work-
ers, maintaining election equipment,
and equipping polling places. Adminis-
tering elections involves dealing with
large amounts of data and ensuring the

Got It All

"Something old, some-
thing new..." at Granny's
This-N-That it is how the
saying should go. Opening
its doors to Madison collec-
tors at the Grand Opening
on Thursday, October 23,
Granny showed that she re-
ally has got a little some-
thing for everybody who
stops by From true collec-
tables to, as Granny likes to
call them, "old things"
Chris "Granny" Zavasky
"has set up a shop full of
Strinkets to delight all who
amble in. There to examine
her wares, Granny's Grand
Opening treated all visitors
to delightful treats and no-
body left Granny's without
a smile to take home with


them.
After years in the
restaurant business,
Granny Zavasky decided to
try her hand at something
new and old. Starting out at
the flea market in Lake
Park, it wasn't long until
Granny's odds and ends
were overflowing the booth
and Zavasky began looking
around for a perfect place
to set up shop. Thinking
Madison, the response was
welcoming and a suitable
spot opened up next to the
Spaghetti House. Moving
in and unloading her
wares, Granny had found a
home for her This-N-That.
With the Grand Open-
ing held on October 23,
Granny's doors are now of-
ficially open, to the public

Board Issues Proclamation


Honoring Big Bend Hospice


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
"NOW THEREFORE BE IT PRO-
CLAIMED," the proclamation concluded,
"that the month of October 2008 be
known as Big Bend Hospice, Inc. Month
in honor of the organization's 25th
birthday"
Michele Brantley, Community Rela-
tions Coordinator for Jefferson, Madison
and Taylor County for Big Bend Hospice,
as well as their Advisory Council for
Madison County consisting of Deloris
Jones, Louise Strickland and Lillian Bal-
loon, came before the County Commis-
sioners on October 15 to accept the
proclamation. In a return gesture, the '
board, county officers and staff were
presented with a commemorative card
and candy thanking the community.
A day prior, the City of Madison
Commissioners presented the same
recognition, as Big Bend Hospice has


Thomasvill


built an exceptional reputation through
out the region. The proclamation also
recognized that November is National
Hospice Month with the goal of raising
hospice awareness. The impressive vol-
ume and range of relationships estab-
lished over the 25-year period was ac-
knowledged as both splendid and vital t
the community.
In the past year alone, Big Bend Hos
pice has brought comfort and compas-
sion to over 1,500 patients, 74 of which
resided in Madison County. In addition
there are over 400 volunteers whohave
amassed over 20,000 hours of support.
And while the numbers are awesome,
they are nothing compared to the heart
displayed by those volunteers and the
staff that have made Big Bend Hospice
such an important part of hospice care
in Madison County.

reenspan Admits Mistakes Were .stly,
Greenspan Admits Mistakes Were Costly


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan
Greenspan told Congress on Thursday, October 23, he
is "shocked" at the breakdown in U.S. credit markets
and said he was "partially" wrong to resist.regulation
of some securities. Despite concerns he had in 2005
that risks were being underestimated, "This crisis,
however, has turned out to be much broader than any-
thing I could have imagined," Greenspan said in re-
marks prepared for delivery to the House of Represen-
tatives Committee on Oversight and Government Re-
form.
"Those of us who have looked to the self-interest of
lending institutions to protect shareholder's equity,
myself especially, are in a state of shocked disbelief,"
said Greenspan, who stepped down from the Federal
reserve in 2006.
With a general election approaching November 4,
lawmakers are sharply divided along political lines in
either blaming regulators or bickering over failure to
prevent the crisis that has gripped financial markets
around the world.
"The reasons why we set up your agencies and gave
you budget authority to hire people is so you can see
problems developing before they become a crisis,"
Committee Chairman Henry Waxman, a California De-
mocrat, told a panel that included Securities and Ex-
change Commission Chairman Christopher Cox and
former U.S. Treasury Secretary John Snow.
"To say you just didn't see it, that just doesn't sat-
isfy me," Waxman added to Greenspan, citing a series


of public statements by Greenspan saying the market could handle regulation of de-
rivatives without government intervention. "My question is simple: Were you


wrong?" Waxman asked.
As he spoke, Greenspan softened his longstanding
opposition to financial market regulation, acknowledg-
ing in the exchange with Waxman that he was "par-
tially" wrong in his belief that some trading instru-
ments, especially Credit Default Swaps, did not need
oversight. Credit Default Swaps are not known by
many but are a multi-trillion dollar business that pay-
off to investors if loans default.. These default swaps
are a core reason the credit markets and several of the
larger players went down so fast and yet, again, most
households in America have never heard of these un-
regulated instruments.
While Greenspan was once hailed as one of the most
accomplished central bankers in U.S. history, the low
interest rates during his final years at the Fed have
been blamed for fueling the housing bubble and even-
tual crash that touched off the current financial crisis.
His strong advocacy for limited regulation of financial
markets has also been called into question as a result of
the crisis.
'A surge in demand for U.S. sub-prime securities,
supported by unrealistically positive ratings by credit
agencies, was the core of the problem," Greenspan not-
ed. He still backs the recently approved $700 billion
bailout package,'however, saying that without it, banks
and other financial institutions would likely face an
even more serious reduction in credit.

Getting ANew Look On Health


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
There is a new look on


*family medicine at the
Four Freedoms Health
Service Center. After re-


modeling, building almost
from the ground up, this
rural health care clinic
has changed its face with-
out changing goals, and
that is to provide quality
health care for all Madi-
son Cofunty and Tri-Coun-
ty residents.
The assembled med-
ical team of Doctors Brett
Perkins; Shayla Gray,
Pryia Kumar and Paul
Hartsfield have come to-
gether for the collective
community need of
health. Classified as a rur-
al health care clinic that
accepts Medicaid/Care,
Blue Cross/Blue Shield
and other traditional in-
surance providers, the
center also aids lower in-
come families that may
not have insurance
through financial assis-
tance programs, Paying
only $10 to $15 dollars out
of pocket for a visit, no
one in the Tri-County
area should have to worry
about not being able to af-
ford essential medical
care.
It was a spectacular
turnout for the Center's
official open, and the
crowd seemed pleased by
what they saw. The clinic
has been remodeled
through the efforts of Dr.


Brett Perkins, his wife,
April, and Physician's As-
sistant, Gena Plain. To-
gether the trio spruced,
painted, and artfully deco-
rated, giving the center a
.warm, homey, not-so-cold-
clinic feel that makes go-
ing to the doctor not so
bad. The chocolate cov-
ered strawberries served
to the welcoming looky-
looes didn't hurt, either.
Dr. Perkins has been
seeing patients already
and Doctors Grey and Ku-
mar will be joining the
practice in October and
November respectively
Dr. Hartsfield will be join-
ing them from Tallahas-
see next fall but with 12
exam rooms, 2 triage
rooms and 2 waiting
rooms, the doctors and
medical assistants on site
should be able to keep the
patients down to a dull
roar until the final team-
mate shows up. Medical
assistants, Burt Hall and
Cynthia Johnson will be
moving things along by
taking vitals and pres-
sures to cut down on the
wait.

Question: Will Halloween candy
wreck my children's teeth?


Answer: Please don't report me to the
Tooth Fairy for this answer. I don't want my
children to get in trouble with her. I let my
children enjoy their Halloween candy. I
don't even mind if they eat a bunch of it.
The amount of candy they eat has nothing
to do with cavities. What matters most is if
they thoroughly brush their teeth after the
candy. I don't want them going to bed
eating candy and leaving the sugar on their
teeth all night. I don't want them eating
candy in the car on the way to school in the
morning.

I also don't want to dribble out the candy in
dribs and drabs. Without going deep into
the science, what is harmful is giving them
a little candy throughout the day, unless the
children brush their teeth every thirty
minutes. I say give them as much as it
takes for them to be satisfied. Then brush
their teeth and not give them anymore
candy until the next meal time or snack
time.

ance to hospice, with

lived.

Renovating The Home Of Ray Charles


Greene Publishing, Inc., Photo by Tyrra B Meserve, October 24, 2008
Madison Garden Club President, Dolly Ballard and Greenville Elementary teacher
Rebecca Miller show off their green progress.


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Started at the beginning of October,
Greenville Elementary students with
the help of Madison Garden Club
women, set about sprouting wheelbar-.
rows. Filling each barrow with compost
and soil, fourth and fifth grade students
in Rebecca Miller's class got to get their
hands dirty while learning about the
veggies that soon would take root.
Kale. cabbage, and radishes are
peaking out their little heads and beets,
mustards and wee greens are rising
from their soil beds at Greenville Ele-
mentary School. The Madison Garden
Club ladies poked in to see how things


are growing and were pleasantly sur-
prised at the veggie progress. Looking
over the growing greens, the enthusias-
tic horticulturists perused pictures tak-
en of the sprouting seedlings and a
mini-billboard proudly displays their
work in progress.
Anticipating the joy of spring, all
those eyes are steadily watching their
little plant wards with love and tender
attention. Come the changing of the sea-
sons and the warmth of the coming
spring, there will be a bounty of vegeta-
bles to choose from, already growing on
wheels.

Part of a plan to spruce up the older
side of Greenville, city beautification
projects.are sprouting up all over town..
One project is dedicated to a local leg-
end and the little house he lived in as a
tot. Down Ray Charles Avenue, on the
left hand side, waiting behind a work
fence to be unveiled after its restoration,
is the childhood home of Ray Charles.
Being done with the help of grant
funding provided by the Historic
Preservation Grant assistance by the
Bureau of Historic Preservation Divi-:
sion, the Town of Greenville is revamp-
ing one of its most famous historical
sites. A $48,000 Historic Preservation
Grant funded the completed renova-
tions, however more improvements are
scheduled to add to the aura of the his-


torical period, such as an outdoor privy
and a hand-primed water pump. The
childhood home of Ray Charles is get-
ting a refacing in the interest of pro-
moting local history and exploring the
sites that make Greenville unique.
Promoting community involvement,
anyone who wishes to make a donation
of era appropriate display items or
monetary donations to help see the pro-
ject to completion may wish to contact
the Greenville City Hall. Staff there is
eager to help with anything that will
benefit the project and support future
upkeep. Keeping Greenville beautiful
and slowing time with historical signif-
icance, Greenville is once again show-
ing that it is the little town that can*
and does.

Tree Cookies


By Tyrra B Meserve ,
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The famous fire fight-
er, for all ages, Smokey
Bear, along with some
Madison Garden Club
ladies, visited Greeneville
Elementary School, Rebec-
ca Miller's fourth Grade
Class to share his wisdom
on forest fires and pass
around his cookies, tree
that is. Counting rings and
learning the difference be-
tween forest fires and con-
trolled burns, students
learned all about the trees
that shade and how to pre-
vent the fires that destroy
these precious resources.
"What do trees pro-
vide?" asked Trent In-
gram, a firefighter for the
Georgia Forestry Division
from Thomasville, while
the students waited for
Smokey to appear.
The responses were
immediately forthcoming.
"Oxygen, shade, paper,
lumber, firewood, pencils,
chewing gum." Wait a sec-
ond, Chewing gum? Yes,
students learned that, in-
deed, one of a child's fa-
vorite treats and a mom's
worst nightmares comes
from trees. Going back as


far as 50 A.D.,, ancient
Greeks made chewing
gum from the resin of the
Mastic tree. These and
other facts were shared as
students had fun learning
about trees, their impor-
tance to the ecosystem,
and how to protect them
against one of societies
biggest threats, uncon-
trolled fires accidentally
started.
The difference be-
tween forest fires and pre-
scribed burns, the fourth
graders learned, was how
they are set, handled and
controlled. Used to clear


out dead or overgrown fo-
liage, promote new growth
and prevent future de-
struction, controlled
burns are purposely set by
professionals who know
their woods.
"Some trees," Ingram
enlightened, "actually
benefit from fire. Has any-.
one heard of the long leaf
pine? These trees need fire
to grow, or else they get
sick and die."
Using a lree cookie to
show how rings inside the
tree trunk tell its age, stu-
dents got little mitts on
knowledge about their


trees. Ingram also told his
listeners how a tool called
a wood borer saves the
forestry department from
having to cut down the
tree to tell its age. Able to
take a small pencil sized
sample from the tree, this
tube allows, the rings in-
side the trunk to be count-
ed without harm to the
tree itself.
It was then that In-
gram noticed the time and
deduced that Smokey
must be getting hungry, it
being so close to his
lunchtime and his being a
bear and all, decided to go


fetch him for a little, visit
with the class. As Ingram
left, Smokey slid in from a
side door, hugged and
shook paws with the eager
audience.
His message of utmost
importance; as always
was, "Never play with
fire!"
"What should you nev-
er play with?" the students
were :.asked. Once again
thed students were on the
ball with their answers.
"Matches, lighters, the
oven, FIRE!" they exi-.
claimed unanimously .
"And what should you
do if you see someone else
playing with fire?"
Smokey asked his wee
learners.
"Tell your mom, dad, a
teacher, the principal, the
police, a fireman," came
the enthusiastic answers.
"Tell somebody,"
Smokey replied.
Now armed with
knowledge and a love for
the trees that grow "just
like we do,"; Greenville
fourth graders' will .be
wary of the destruction
that forest fires cause.
Nothing sends a message
home like a big fuzzy bear


in a ranger's cap with a
cookie.

The Florida Motoplex brings a strong brand to Madison County in Amp-Xtreme.


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Florida Motoplex, which is locat-
ed a few miles south of 1-10 on State Road4
53, is gathering more attention recently
after launching its new relationship with
Amp-Xtreme and hosting a race in the
Florida Gold Cup series. Amp-Xtreme
was running a track in Live Oak when
zoning conflicts arose that concluded
with them moving over and leasing the
Motoplex from Paul Stanton, the own-
er/operator of the up-and-coming facili-
ty
The Florida Gold Cup is a six race se-
ries hosted at the top tracks in Florida, so
kudos go out to Stanton for landing it in
Madison County.
Leasing the track to a recognized
brand like Amp-Xtreme is an exceptional
accomplishment that should translate
into increased local commerce and get
added to the often-criticized short list of
"Things to do in Madison County"


The Motoplex will continue to host
quality races throughout the year, in ad-
dition to introducing several other
venues-that are sure to.create a following.
Among these additions, there is an
upgrade underway of the 300 foot sand
drag strip and the seven-mile cross-coun-
try loop fashioned in a motocross-style is
already completed.
Another fan favorite that is nearing
completion is a new competition mud pit.
Scheduled to be completed in time for
MISSION: MUD II, this huge event is be-
ing held in cooperation with ATVs Gone
Wild. Additional details are available on
their website, http://www.atvsgonewil-
donline.com/MISSIONMUD.html.,
Gates for the ATV event open on Fri-
day, November 14 at 10 a.m. and close on
Sunday, November 16 at 5 p.m.
Admission is $30 for the entire week-
end or $10 for Sunday only.

Most football games that start with
three touchdowns in the first two minutes
are likely to end well, and Friday night's
game against the Fort White Indians was
no exception. When the final whistle blew,
Madison County High School had added
four more scores to clinch the district title.
The final score was Cowboys 44, Indians
28.
The Indians came into the game with a
5-1 record, losing by only one point to Lee
of Jacksonville in their season opener.
But they were no match for the undefeated


Cowboys, even with star running back
Chris Thompson on the sidelines with an
ankle injury, although he is expected back
for the Godby game this Friday.
Corey Akins gave a rushing showcase,
demonstrating why he is bound for a colle-
giate career as well. Akins rushed for 243
yards and three touchdowns on only 23
carries, and Xavier Brown added another
94 on just 13 carries.
As a team, the 10-yard per carry aver-
age that the Cowboys have been keeping up
all season is the reason brands like Under
Armour and Nike are now seeking them
out. The Cowboy "brand" is no longer just


a clever play on words, as they host Godby
this Friday in a game being covered by
ESPN. Head Coach Frankie Carroll and
his, staff are working hard to keep things
in balance, though.
"We're proud to have clinched the dis-
trict title. The. team played hard and
they're getting better. It's important that
we improve every game as we approach the
playoffs because once we get there just one
mistake can cost the season," Carroll ex-
plained.
"Of course, we're excited about the
challenge with Godby and hosting ESPN,
but we can't get distracted. Our guys love


to play football. We just have to take it on0
game at a time," he added. '"
Corey Akins was the Offensive Playert
the Game and Jaccobi McDaniel earned
fensive honors.
Cowboy Boosters want to remind evey:-
one to come out and join the team, cheer-
leaders and band on Thursday night, Oct-
ber 30 at 7 p.m. at the stadium and thdn
again on Friday night for the game against
Godby All are asked to wear maroon to
show viewers throughout America the look
of Cowboy pride.

Elect


Ben Stewart
For

Sheriff

"Integrity With Experience"

To the citizens of Madison County:
As the election draws to an end, I wanted to put in writing that I would appreciate your
vote on November the 4th. I have tried very hard to see as many people in the county as possible
and personally ask for your vote. However, I found that this was impossible. There are currently
over 12,000 registered voters in Madison County. I sincerely apologize if I did not make it to
your home.
My decision to run for Sheriff came out of an overwhelming concern for the future of law
enforcement in Madison County and a lot of prayer. At the time the decision was made over a
year ago I had four priorities for the Sheriff's Office that I felt needed to be addressed. These
priorities are based on over 26 years of-law enforcement experience and they have not changed
through the course of this election.
The first priority is the accessibility of the Sheriff's Office to the public. I feel that this
should begin with the Sheriff as he must lead by example and not expect his employees to do
anything that he is not willing to do himself. The second priority is to increase the war on drugs.
I feel that a drug task force with at least three men working drug investigations is a necessity.
This task force is possible with the current budget restrictions. The third priority is promoting
community awareness and involvement with the function of the Sheriff's Office. I feel that the
crime problems in Madison County are too big to solve without the help of the community.
There are several community organizations already in place as well as others that I will be im-
plementing to assist in the fight against crime in our county. These range from the volunteer
fire departments already operating to promoting the start of community watch programs. The
fourth priority is to invest in training for officers to achieve the most efficient force possible.
I feel that training is the best way to provide good officers with the tools to be even more effective
in fighting crime.
Finally, I am convinced that the only way to achieve these priorities is through experience
and a lot of motivation. I have over 20 years of experience working for the Madison County
Sheriff's Office and 5 years working for the State Attorney's Office as an Investigator. I have
worked on all types of cases including several homicides which has given me the "hands on" ex-
perience needed to effectively lead the Sheriff's Office. During this time I also was the pilot for
the Sheriff's Office airplane as well as a polygraph examiner. Please let me put my experience
and motivation to work for you as the next Sheriff of Madison County.
Sincerely,
Ben Stewart

all of the volunteers who helped out at this year's Sunbelt Agricultural Expo, which

Scary Investment Moves Can
Lead to Frightful Results
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
As we approach Halloween, you'll spot many ghouls,
ghosts and graves, which you probably will find more
amusing than frightening. However, whether it's
Halloween or not, you can encounter things that truly
might threaten your future well-being such as
scary investment moves.
Here are a few of these "terrifying tactics" you'll want
to avoid:
Investing too conservatively When most
people think of making investment mistakes, they're
probably worried about investing too .aggressively.
And, of course, you don't want to take unnecessary
risks. But what you might not realize is that "playing
it safe" can be just as dangerous to your long-term
goals. If you consistently put most of your investment
dollars into fixed-rate vehicles, such as Certificates
of Deposit (CDs) and Treasury bills, you might not
even earn enough to stay ahead of inflation, much
less achieve the growth you need to pay for a retire-
ment that could last two or three decades.
Consequently, you will need some exposure to
growth-oriented vehicles, such as stocks. While it's
true that stock prices will fluctuate, and you do risk
losing some or your entire principal, you can lessen
this risk by purchasing quality stocks and holding
them for the long term.
Timing the market-Too many people jump in
the market when they think it's going up and get out
when they feel it's going down. But it's impossible for
anyone to really predict market highs and lows -
and if you base your investment decisions on this
type of 'market timing," you could end up hurting your
progress toward your financial objectives. For exam-
ple, if you stop investing when you think a slump is
coming, but the market quickly turns around, you'll
miss the opening stages of a rally, when the biggest
gains are often recorded.
Over-reacting to bad news Wars, corporate
scandals and natural disasters, among other occur-
rences, often send investors scurrying to the side-
lines, convinced that the bad news will lead to a
severe market decline. Typically, though, any decline
following a significant, negatively perceived event, is
short-lived, and, in many cases, the market recoups
its losses and moves to higher levels within a matter
of months.
Chasing "hot" stocks -You can get stock "tips"
from everyone friends, neighbors, magazines, the
Internet, talking heads on television and so on. Some
of these tips come from well-informed sources, while
others do not, but they all have one thing in common
they're essentially worthless to you. For one thing,
by the time you get a tip for a 'hot" stock, it may
already be cooling down. But more importantly, the
stock may not be appropriate for your individual situ-
ation. If, for instance, you buy shares of a company
that is very similar to other companies you already
own, and an economic downturn affects the industry
to which those companies belong, you will hurt,
rather than help, your portfolio by purchasing the so-
called hot stock. You're much better off by ignoring
these tips and focusing on building a portfolio that is
suitable for your risk tolerance, time horizon and
long-term goals.
By avoiding these "scary" investment moves, you can
help yourself achieve some results that aren't too
frightful in fact, they may eventually be sweeter
than the best Halloween candy.
