20-Year-Old Confesses To Murder Of Father P


A 20-year-old Madison
man was arrested on Friday,
October 31, and charged
with murder following his
confession.
According to a Madison
Police Department report,
on Friday, October 31, at ap-
proximately 10:20 a.m., the
MPD received information
from the victim's mother


(who resides in St. Augus-
tine) that she was worried
about her son. She had not
heard from her son in more
than a week.
The son, David Crosby,
46, was living in Madison
with his son, Ryan Crosby,
20, at 334 NE Shelby Street.
The mother was concerned
for David Crosby's well-be-


ing, because he had been
suffering from depression.
She had talked with her
grandson, who said that
David Crosby left home on
October 23 in the middle of
the night and he had not
seen him since. Ryan told
his grandmother that he
had already made a missing
persons report to the Madi-


son County Sheriff's Office,
but no missing persons re-
port could be found.
MPD Sgt. James Roe-
buck met with Ryan Crosby
at approximately 11 a.m. at
his residence to follow up on
the report, and to begin a
missing person investiga-
tion. During questioning,
Ryan Crosby gave state-


ments of David Crosby's
travel plans and other state-
ments that were quickly
proven untruthful. Roebuck
left the residence, stressing
to Ryan that the police de-
partment would continue
looking for David Crosby
until he was found.

Pilgrim's Pride

Responding

SToChallenges
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Although no statements
have been made from local
Pilgrim's Pride management
or the national headquarters,
two North Florida regional
newspapers recently released
new articles detailing the fi-
nancial challenges facing.Pil-
grim's Pride.
According to one article,
"Pilgrim's Pride Corp., the na-
tion's largest chicken produc-
er and Suwannee County's
biggest employer, will likely
face bankruptcy in the com-
ing months, an independent
research firm reported Thurs-
day The research firm, Cred-
itSights, called bankruptcy
'highly probable' for the Pitts-
burg, Texas-based company,
according to widespread re-
ports."
The article went on to say,
"On Thursday, Pilgrim's stock
was trading at $1.08 per share,
down from a 52-week high of
$29.59 in December 2007. The
Pilgrim's Pride processing
plant in Suwannee County
employs more than 1,300
workers. In addition, farmers
and growers throughout
North Florida and South
Georgia depend on the plant
for their livelihood."
The second article was
equally unpleasant. Dis-
cussing the challenges facing
Tyson Foods, which is Pil-
grim's Pride's largest competi-
tor, the article stated, "Sad-

Sebastian Harris moved to Madison five
years ago to help his family while his grand-
mother had been suffering from some health is-
sues. Going to school for his AA, Harris is also
employed at Beal's in the Winn Dixie Shopping
Plaza.
When Harris isn't working, he likes to play
video games, visit with his girlfriend, and play
bass. He's hoping to join the Jazz ensemble at
NFCC in the near future.
When asked a favorite quote or lyric, Harris
responded "Sing like you think no one is listen-

Response To Response...


In response to Connie Seals Ballek's, RN, CEN, EMT-
P, Director Medical Care, response to my article "Stand
Firm... Stand In The Gap!!!," first off, no thanks on the
Estrogen. We have enough guys in our society today sit-
ting around watching Oprah and knitting sweaters for
Their kitty cats. I'll also pass on the nurse leadership
classes. Although they sound like nail biters, I spent
S most of my 10 years in the military training, and lead-
ing, airborne rangers, snipers and sniper instructors. I
, know how to train and lead warriors when they are
willing to provide the hearts and intestinal fortitude.
aThis may intimidate micro managers and power
and control freaks, but, oh well... Some are better suited
S for fighting the battles. Others may be best in a support
role. There are many warriors in the Madison County
Sheriff's Office. Warriors don't need to be burped and
powdered like others. They know who they are. I am
proud of my department. I have fought hard for it for
S close to 20 years. I know its potential and I plan on being
part of its positive growth, regardless if after the elec-
Stion I am near the top, or at the bottom, of the food
chain. There are only a few slugs in my department that
may require a tune up. As far as everything else, I feel
no need to explain anything further to man. Ultimately,
it's not about my candidate choices and it's definitely
not about me. It is about taking a stand for what is right
S and striving to honor God. God knows the truth.

As members of the Lee community, this reporter

John Ripley At Rest


This week-
end, 69-year-old
retired Marine
Colonel John
Ripley died in his
sleep at home in
Annapolis, Mary-
land. He died
peacefully, but he
did not live a life
of peace. Ripley

the first order. His greatest test of
strength and bravery took place on April
2, 1972 in Vietnam aZ a contested river
bridge near Dong Ha.
Years before following graduation
from high school, Ripley enlisted in the
Navy and a year later, won a rare and cov-
eted appointment to the United States
Naval Academy. Upon graduation four
years later, he entered the Marine Corps.
Over the next several years, he would
prove his mental and physical toughness
by graduating from the four most strenu-
ous training programs Army Ranger,
Marine Reconnaissance, Army Air-
borne, and Royal Marines. Ripley
thrived on challenge. Apparently he is
the only Marine to be inducted into the
Ranger hall of fame.
On April 2nd, Ripley was the sole
American advisor to a South Vietnamese
marine unit in the northern-most
province on the border between the two
Vietnams. They were assigned to guard a
highway bridge over the Cau Viet River
and ordered to "hold or die" in their mis-
sion.
Three days before, the North Viet-
namese had launched their Easter Offen-
sive by invading South Vietnam with 200
thousand regular army soldiers. It was
the largest conventional attack since the
Chinese invasion of Korea in late 1950.
Ripley's unit faced a tsunami of attack-
ers a division of 20 thousand soldiers
supported by 200 tanks. Defense of the
Dong Ha bridge was vital to stopping the
enemy advance.
After a brave South Vietnamese NCO
stopped the lead tank short of the bridge
with a light anti-armor round, Captain
Ripley grabbed a satchel of explosives
and ran toward the critical river bridge.
Under withering enemy fire, he began to
pack the critical joints of the bridge with
explosives and wire them together. Then
he climbed over the bridge and suspend-
ed himself with one hand and packed the

-, his free hand.
He made
repeated trips,
eventually plac-
ing more than
500 pounds of
explosives on
the Cau Viet Riv-
er bridge.
When the
job was com-
plete, the bridge was blown and the spans
settled into the critical river crossing.
Mission accomplished! The advancing
North Vietnamese Army units were
stopped in their tracks and vulnerable to
air attack. Days later, they were able to
cross the Cau Viet at a ford, but at great-
ly reduced strength.
For his courage under fire and in-
credible initiative, Marinie Captain John
Ripley was awarded the Navy Cross and
Silver Star. He went on to complete a dis-
tinguished military career and to this
day, remains a brilliant example of hero-
ism to a new generation of Marines.
What was I doing on April 2, 1972?
The C-130 that I was troop commander
for had landed at an airfield in Taiwan
enroute from Korea. I was a 23-year-old
Air Force first lieutenant. We were on
our way to The Philippines, but when I
phoned the command post, our mission
had been diverted to DaNang Airbase
about sixty miles south of Dong Ha. We
landed the next day, and by April 7th, I
flew my first combat mission. There is a
real possibility that had John Ripley not
stopped the North Vietnamese advance,
DaNang would have fallen.
John Ripley had the warrior ethos.
Every generation of Americans have a
group of men who possess this unique
trait. No challenge is too great; no obsta-
cle too high; no mission too impossible
for these warriors. They rise to the occa-
sion wherever and whenever called.
When duty calls, they are ready.
Many lose their lives in the process, but
the sacrifice is always worth the effort.
Today, we can find these young men
in select units fighting our nation's ene-
mies in Iran and Afghanistan. They will
be replaced by more currently in train-
ing. They look to their predecessors like
John Ripley for inspiration. Rest in
peace John Ripley you've earned it.
And ,thank you for your heroic ser-
vice ... then and now.

McCollum, AARP: Senior Citizens Should Beware Of Costly "Grandchild Scheme"


Attorney General Bill
McCollum and AARP is-
sued a consumer advisory
about an emerging tele-
phone scam that is preying
on grandparents nation-
wide. The advisory follows
the Better Business Bu-
reau's recent report that
grandparents are being tak-
en advantage of by Canadi-
an con artists claiming to


be their victims' grandchil-
dren in need of emergency
cash. The grandparents be-
lieve they are helping their
grandchildren out of an
emergency situation, but
are in fact losing thousands
of dollars to the scammers.
"Anyone who preys on
the love and concern a
grandparent may have for
his or her grandchild is ab-


solutely unscrupulous and
should be reported immedi-
ately to local and Canadian
authorities," said Attorney
General McCollum. "This
scam is truly despicable."
Consumer complaints
to the Attorney General's
Office have provided infor-
mation about the mechan-
ics of the scheme, which
preys on the grandparent's
concern for the well-being
of his or her grandchild.
Typically the grandpar-
ent receives a distressed
phone call from someone
pretending to be his or her
grandchild. The supposed
grandchild explains that he
or she is travelling in Cana-
da and is in some kind of
trouble, ranging from an ar-
rest to an auto accident.
The con artist pleads with
the grandparent to wire
money to post bail or pay
for damages, usually
amounting to a few thou-
sand dollars. One individ-
ual who contacted the At-
torney General's Office had
wired $5,100 to someone he
believed was his grandson,
supposedly to bail his
grandson out of jail. Upon
contacting his grandson lat-
er, the man learned he had
been scammed and report-
ed the incident to authori-
ties.
"It is beneath contempt
to use a grandparent's love
as a weapon against older
Floridians," said AARP
Florida State Director Lori
Parham. "We urge AARP
members, and all Floridi-
ans 50+, to report examples
of this promptly to the ap-
propriate authorities."


The Better Business
Bureau advises that any re-
quest to wire money
through Western Union or
MoneyGram should be
seen as a red flag and an
immediate tip-off that the
call may be part of a scam,
as these two money wire
services have been preva-
lently used by the scam-
mers as the means by
which to obtain the money
Funds sent via wire trans-
fer are hard to track once
received by con artists and
are usually not recoverable
by law enforcement or
banking officials.
The Canadian Anti-
Fraud Call Centre is re-
porting a significant in-
crease in complaints for
this scam. To protect them-
selves from this scam and
other that may use a dis-
tressed loved one tactic,
the BBB is advising se'
niors to confirm the status
of their loved one by call-
ing them directly or verify-
ing the story with other
family members before
taking any. further action.
Floridians who believe
they have been victimized
by this scam should imme-
diately report the incident
to local law enforcement)
Additionally, if there has
been a request to wire
money to Canada, the
Canadian Anti-Fraud Call
Centre has established the
PhoneBusters hotline and
web site to report such
fraud. Reports can be filed
online through the Phone-
Busters site, http://www.-

phone at 1-888-495-8501.


Transition to Retirement: What
"First Wave" Boomers Should Know
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
If you're a "senior" member of the baby boom gen-
eration generally defined as those born between
1946 and 1964 you've seen a lot in your life: the Cold
War, the first moon landing, the birth of the Internet and
much more. But in just.a few years, you may face some-
thing you probably never thought you'd see: your retire-
ment. To make a smooth transition to this stage of your
life, you'll need to become familiar with a few key finan-
cial topics.
Consider the following:
Retirement plan income For the past few
decades, you may have been building financial
resources for retirement through an employer-spon-
sored plan such as a 401(k) or a traditional pension
and possibly an IRA. Now, however, it's time to deter-
mine just how much retirement income these vehicles
will produce. A traditional pension will provide you reg-
ular payments based on your years of service and
salary, but you have much more flexibility and latitude
when it comes to taking withdrawals from a 401(k) or
IRA. How much you withdraw directly affects how long
your money will last, so you may want to consult with a
professional financial advisor to determine the appro-
priate withdrawal rates for these accounts, based on
your projected retirement lifestyle, life expectancy, risk
.tolerance and other factors.
Health insurance Well before you retire, consult
.with your employer's benefits office to learn if you can
receive some type of health insurance as a retiree.
Many large employers extend health care coverage to
retired workers, but as health care costs have risen,
some companies have cut back or eliminated this ben-
efit. Generally speaking, you won't be eligible for
Medicare until you are 65. If you retire before that age
and your former employer doesn't cover you, you'll
need to find some health insurance to fill the gap.
Social Security -You can begin collecting Social
Security benefits at age 62, but you'll get larger month-
ly checks if you wait until you reach "normal" retirement
age, which, if you are in the first wave of baby boomers,
will be about age 66. When should you start taking pay-
ments? It depends on a variety of factors, including
your health, family history of longevity and other
sources of income.
Further employment If you decide to do some
type of work after retirement, whether for financial or
personal reasons, you'll need to factor this income into
your overall retirement income strategies. For instance,
if you're earning a reasonable amount from a post-
retirement job, you may want to delay taking money
from your 401(k) or traditional IRA (though you'll have
to start taking distributions when you reach age 70-
1/2). Also, according to the Social Security
Administration, if you start collecting Social Security
when you're younger than your full retirement age, you
will lose $1 of benefits for every $2 you earn above a
certain annual amount ($13,560 in 2008). Once you
reach full retirement age, you can keep all your bene-
fits, no matter how much you earn.

So, there you have them just a few of the financial
issues you'll need to explore as you lead the baby
boom cohort into retirement. By taking your time and
exploring all your options, you can make the transition
pleasant and rewarding.

into the Advent Christian Village, he is thinking about
teaching Dowling Park seniors some of the things he

Both a caregiver and a wonderful friend, Ulrey's go-

so many have grown accustomed to.
"It has been a lot of fun helping fellow seniors at the

"That has been the real joy of it."

Just in time for a
clean-up day sched-

Doug Freer, with the
Madison Health De-

them to PACE them-

about. Greene Publishing, Inc., Photo by Tyrra B Meserve, October 30, 2008

that have expired and
rest beneath permanent auto cocoons and debris that has collected on empty lots,
Pace people are working on cleaning up the streets of Madison. On a brief tour
around the town to see where to start, PACE noted approximately 12 abandoned build-,
ings and about 20 empty lots that are turning into dumpsites. Add to this around 8 to
10 abandoned cars that never move and the beautiful streets of Madison might need
a bit of a touch up to get them back on track.
Doug Freer let the Kiwanians know that the PACE project is looking for any input
from the community that they can muster. From direction, advice and contacts, to vol-
unteers, trucks, trailers and maybe even lunch for the crew, it is important that Madi-
son's community pull together to get the job done.
Anyone interested in joining the effort can call Doug Freer at 973-5000, extension
119. Freer will be more than happy for any added hands that can PACE themselves.

Center. To celebrate, the
students partied with
NFCC Patient Care Technicians students play bingo their patients, showing
and bowling with the residents. that there's much more to

them than just their med-
icine. They've got it made
in the bedside manner de-
partment as well.
As residents at Lake
Park Nursing Center al-
ways enjoy the visits
from the NFCC students,
the celebration held on
October 16 was another
added bonus. Celebrating
the completion of their
clinical rotation, the stu-
dents and their patients


partied with music,
games, door prizes and
snacks. Enjoying some
bingo and bowling, the
PCT students got to share
more with their Lake
Park patients than just
their usual medical
knowledge. This time,
there was plenty of laugh-
ter and fun on the side.
Also finishing their
clinical rotation weres
the NFCC LPNs, though


unfortunately they were
unable to attend the cele-
bration. Though they will
not be fully completed
with studies until a bit
later in the year, everyone
welcomes the new stu-
dents into their chosen
profession and good
health is wished to all.

-Question: Dear Ms. Etiquette; How do
you greet someone with a ghastly meth
mouth smile?


Answer: Try, "Hello....nice tooth!"

This may be a bad joke, but it illustrates
the significant decay caused by smoking
"Crank." Meth mouth is severe rapid tooth
decay caused by methamphetamine. It is
so rapid and severe that many patients in
their early 20's have all their teeth
extracted. Methamphetamine causes a
combination of cotton mouth and sugar
craving which is devastating on teeth.
Couple poor oral hygiene habits, a 12
pack of soda each day so many meth
addicts crave, and voila they have a smile
of only one or two remaining teeth.

Good news is that there is hope for.meth
addicts on the horizon. A new drug sched-
uled by the FDA for release next month,
has shown a high success rate helping
those recovering from meth addiction.

2008 BRIDAL GUIDE


Wedding Bells Are Ringing


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The term is common to hear,
wedding bells are ringing, but how
many know where and why it came
about? In olden days, when couples
wed for protection and survival, the
wedding bells alerted neighboring
peoples of the event about to take
place. Some believed that the ring-
ing of the bells would drive away the
evil spirits who carried misfortune.
In modern times the practice per-
sists, but now, more traditional than
superstitious in nature, many have
forgotten this custom and it is slow-
ly falling by the wayside.
"The bells are iung during all
masses, including the wedding
mass," according to Father Gordon
at St. Vincent DePaul Catholic
Church. "The ringing of the bells
during mass is part of the universal


teaching of the church."
Yet, most do not adhere to this
tradition. Out of most churches
asked, only a few said that they ring
the wedding bells during the cere-
mony Of those that don't, all admit-
ted, however that they had nothing
against the practice.
In ancient Egyptian nuptials,
people would ring tiny bells, sending
their prayers to Osiris, believing
that this brought blessings and good
tidings to the marriage of the cou-
ple.
The ringing of bells in Christian
churches it is believed began around
400 A.D. when Paulinas, an Italian
bishop, introduced the bells into the
church service. In approximately
604 A.D. Pope Sabinian officially
sanctioned wedding bells during
marriage ceremonies to bless the
newlywed couple. These bells start-


ed out rather small in size, but grew
to larger nuptial bells, many used in
church towers.
In Europe, one may find the use
of wedding bells during ceremonies
more common, especially in both
Irish and Scottish weddings. Over
the years modification of 'the size of
the bells has taken place, altering
their significance slightly Now,
many simply tie the bells together at
the top, using an organza ribbon to
serve as a reminder to the couple of
the vows they have just made and
the love that is shared between
them.
From large to small, crystal to
silver, nuptial bells are one more
way of celebrating the union that is
to be.

Southern Wedding Cuisine That Is


ance's) married in the South, ask
them if they played any traditional
songs at their wedding to get ideas for
the reception.
Marrying in the South is also a
great way to have a destination wed-
ding without leaving the United
States. Just make sure to, provide out
of town guests with hotel ideas and
lists of local attractions and muse-
ums.
Southern Comfort
No Southern wedding is complete
without regional cuisine. Crab cakes,
shrimp and grits, collard greens, and
other classic dishes can all imbue
your wedding with charm. Fresh
lemonade and mint juleps are good
choices for traditional drinks. For a
more modern event, you could dress
up these old favorites with an unex-
pected twist. Wrap your shrimp in
pancetta or serve an unusual veg-
etable dish, such as fried green toma-
toes. Or provide dishes that reflect
your heritage from a particular part of
the South, such as Cajun, Creole, or
Low Country cuisine. For a more ca-
sual wedding, you could create a cozy
Southern atmosphere by serving your
food family style or by offering a buf-


Perhaps you're dreaming of a wed-
ding that evokes your childhood mem-
ories of Georgia. Or maybe you just
want to feel like Scarlett O'Hara on
your wedding day Either way, we'll'
show you how to plan a wedding that's
full of Southern charm and grace.
The Great Outdoors
Natural beauty is one of the
South's greatest assets. Take advan-
tage of what is has to offer by holding
your wedding outdoors. Spring comes
early to many areas in the South, but
the temperature can get very hot in
the summer-especially in states like
Alabama, Mississippi, and
Louisiana-so be sure to do some re-
search about the climate before you
set a date. Plantations, country clubs,
and churches provide great outdoor
venues and often allow you to hold
part of the wedding indoors (or move
the party inside if the weather
changes suddenly!).
If you live outside the region but
want the wedding to have a Southern
feel, you could hold an outdoor cere-
mony with lots of flowers and decora-
tions that remind you of home. Play-
ing country music or having live mu-
sicians can help create a Southern at-
mosphere. If your parents (or your fi-


Full Of Charm
Just remember that if many of
your guests are unaccustomed to
Southern food, you should have a few
familiar dishes on hand to appease
any finicky eaters. The.same advice
also applies if children will be attend-
ing the wedding.
South By Southwest
Maybe you grew up in Charleston,
but your future husband is a staunch
New Englander. Or maybe you are a
native Californian, but your fiance
wants to return to Georgia for the cer-
emony Either way take steps to en-
sure that the non-Southern half of
your pair doesn't feel lost or out of
place. If you are serving a largely
Southern menu, include a few dishes
from the other person's ancestral cui-
sine as well. Gift bags are also a great
opportunity to merge your two back-
grounds. Include items that are
unique to the South, such as copies of
a regional magazine and delicacies
from local stores, in addition to objects
that recall the other person's roots.
Non-perishable treats shipped in from
a favorite bakery, or trinkets from a
specialty shop are good options.
Whatever you choose, make it spe-
cial for you and your guests. This is,
after all, your.day to shine.


AV odiNg UNWaNted QUeStS witH Grace


As with most details and traditions with weddings,
there is a "proper way" to not invite people. Maybe you're
having a small wedding, with a small budget to match. Or
perhaps your intimate setting doesn't leave room for ex-
tra guests. Whatever the reason, you may want to leave
plus ones off of your guest list, but don't know if you can.
It's something of a controversial subject, so rather than
debating whether or not it's in bad taste, we'll just help
you with the how-tos if you decide to go this route.
The Basics
To avoid plus ones at your wedding, address your in-
vitations solely to the people you wish to invite, omitting
the phrase and guest. If is a direct way of communicating
your request. To be even clearer, you could add an RSVP
card that says "X number of seats have been reversed in
your honor." For an invitation to a single person, state
"one seat has been reserved in your honor."
Just remember that there are some couples you must
invite together. People who are married, engaged, or liv-
ing together should be invited as a unit, and you should
probably also invite couples who are in long-term, seri-
ous relationships. It can be difficult to determine who
makes the cut, but it mostly comes down to common
sense: there is clearly a difference between your uncle's

partner of ten years and your friend's brand new

The Problem Guest
What happens when your guests disregard your sub-
tle suggestion, and add extra people to their reply card?
In this case, you should call them and explain that, for
whatever reason, you are unable to accommodate extra
guests. Even thought they should have picked up on your
hint, it's not surprising that they assumed they could
bring someone. If you are tactful and polite, your friend
should not be offended.
If she is upset, let her know that you plan to seat her
with friends, so she won't feel uncomfortable at the re-
ception. Keep your word and place her with people she
knows or has something in common with! Make sure that
you do not just leave your single guests to fend for them-
selves in a sea of couples.
To be courteous to your friends, you should have the
same rules in place for everyone. It's much easier to state
that no one is allowed to bring guests than it is to explain
to Betsy why she can't bring a date when Samantha can.
If you allow some people to bring guests and not oth-
ers, the friends who attend alone will feel that they are
not important to you!

utfliG YOUR





Like most fun wedding customs, the ,:
cake. too, has its own history in ceremony
lore. Going back to Roman times, the
groom would swat the bride over the head
with a loaf of bread. While it sounds like
something straight out of the Three
/" Stooges, apparently it signified his
dominance over his new wife. Charm-\\
ing as that may sound, it didn't last.
Later, buns were made for the happy couple;
like most traditions, this one symbolized fer-
tility.
Now. as everyone knows, the cake sym-
bolizes the joy of your wedding. Etiquette
dictates that the bride cuts the first piece,
and feeds it to the groom. While.this still
symbolizes your first meal together, it does-
n't symbolize a food fight. Most brides and
grooms have banished the idea of stuffing
the other's face. and politely give each other
a bite. After the two of you are served, the
cake is cut for the guests. (Note: If you've
planned to have a sheet cake made, that
should be pre-cut by the caterers and served
once the two of you have gotten your piece.)
Just desserts.
As for the dessert cake dilemma, it's up
to you. Some people have dessert and cake,
\ some only have cake. The good news is that
either choice is fine. You can'cut slices for people to
take home. or simply leave the cake out on the table.
Much of this will depend on the size of your cake
and the size of yoiu reception! Do not feel obliged.
however, to give each guest a slice of cake on the
way out the door.
You may also consider having a groom's
cake, which is usually a smaller concoction, and one
that contrasts in style and color from the main
cake-black frosting is popular. It's generally served
at the same time as the wedding cake, but without
the pomp and circumstance. Groom's cake slices are
popular as favors too.
Having youi' cake and cutting it. too.
The cake cutting is done after dinner, and before
the bouquet garter toss. If you are having a tradi-
tional dessert, you'll want to make sure this course
has been served as well. In general, the DJ or band
leader will announce that the couple is cutting the
cake, and tell guests to gather around. For those of
you who want to opt for something slightly differ-
ent. you can go for cupcakes instead (very trendy
nowadays), carrot cake. even pies! Some couples for-
go the tradition all together, but we say' Since
you've already decided to take the plunge, go ahead
and take the cake.

One person can make a
difference. Nowhere is that
more evident than with the
story of the American
Cancer Society Relay For
Life, which began in Taco-
ma, Washington, as the
City of Destiny Classic 24-
Hour Run Against Cancer.
In the mid-1980s, Dr.
Gordy Klatt, a Tacoma col-
orectal surgeon, wanted to
enhance the income of his
local American Cancer So-
ciety office. He decided to
personally raise money for
the fight by doing some-
thing he enjoyed-running
marathons.
In May 1985, Dr. Klatt
spent a grueling 24 hours
circling the track at Baker
Stadium at the University
of Puget Sound in Tacoma
for more than 83 miles.
Throughout the night,
friends paid $25 to run or
walk 30 minutes with him.
He raised $27,000 to fight
cancer. That first year,
nearly 300 of Dr. Klatt's
friends, family, and pa-
tients watched as he ran
and walked the course.
While he circled the
track those 24 hours, he
thought about how others
could take part. He envi-
sioned a 24-hour team re-
lay event that could raise
more money to fight can-
cer. Months later he pulled
together a small commit-
tee to plan the first team
relay event known as the
City of Destiny Classic 24-
Hour Run Against Cancer.
In 1986, 19 teams took
part in the first team relay
event on the track at the
colorful, historical Stadi-
um Bowl and raised
$33,000. An indescribable
spirit prevailed at the
track and in the tents that
dotted the infield.


Relay For Life Kicks Off



At Fellowship Baptist


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Relay for Life has once again come to Madison.
Raising funds for cancer research and the fight against
the disease, teams have gathered to organize and kick
off the event that has helped so many over the years
with their battle against cancer.
First started by Doctor Gordy Platt, a marathon run-
ning surgeon in Tacoma Washington, back in 1985, the
Relay for Life was started by one man with a purpose.
He was looking to enhance the efforts of his local Amer-
ican Cancer Society by raising some of his own person-
al funding. That first trek around the track was done
by Dr Klatt himself, along with over 300 friends, family
and cancer patients ready to do battle against the dis-
ease that takes so many lives.
Today, the tradition continues as local communi-
ties join forces, raising funds so desperately needed
to rid the world of this disease.
Breaking off into teams, each group involved
plans, raises and participates wholeheartedly in the
event that celebrates the survivors of cancer while
still morning the loss of those who were unable to
continue the fight.
This year the Madison County area Relay for Life
event was kicked off at the Fellowship Baptist
Church, who are major supporters of the Relay. Local
survivors and team leaders took the microphone,
sharing personal testimonies as to the nature of the
disease and how it affects the lives of those it touch-
es. Teary-eyed and sentimental, the teams have
renewed the drive to stop the disease that is never far
from their minds.
Working with the power, of purple, Madison is
now ready, once again for its fight to wage on.
With a sense of victory, it will only be a matter of
months before once again the track is lit by Lumi-
naria. Loved ones will gather to remember those who
.have lost their battle and to fight with all they have

How Your Dollars




Make A Difference


Cancer touches more than just
the person diagnosed. It has an im-
pact on everyone around them.
That's why the American Cancer
Society strives to assist those fight-
ing the disease through research,
advocacy, education, and service.
The American Cancer Society
Relay For Life helps make this
possible. RelayFor Life brings to-
gether millions of people to raise
money to help prevent cancer, save
lives, and diminish suffering from
the disease.
The American Cancer Society
has made great progress against
.cancer in the following areas,
thanks in part to the fundraising
power of Relay For Life:
Groundbreaking Discoveries -
Having invested $3.2 billion in can-
cer research since 1946, the Society
has played a role in almost all the
scientific milestones in cancer re-
search in the past century, includ-.
ing the bone marrow transplant,
the Pap test, and cancer drugs such
as Gleevec and Tamoxifen. Of the
researchers chosen for Society
funding throughout the years, 42
have gone on to win the Nobel
Prize.
Reliable Information The
American Cancer Society provides
information and education, 24
hours a day, seven days a week, 365
days a year....and for that reason,
we have been the most trusted re-
source for cancer information for
nearly a century Thanks to your
support, we provide screening
guidelines, physician education,
and engage in public efforts to in-


crease awareness about the impor-
tance of cancer prevention and ear-
ly detection. The Society has
helped to empower people to take
control of their health. Our cancer
information specialists answered
more than 1.3 million calls this year
to 1-800-ACS-2345 and nearly 33,000
emails to www.cancerorg.
Better Public Policies to Fight
Cancer Cancer is not just a health
issue it is a public policy issue as
well. Thanks to your support; the
American Cancer Society, in part-
nership with its sister advocacy or-
ganization, the American Cancer
Society Cancer Action Network
(ACS CAN), works to keep cancer
funding a top priority with our na-
tion's lawmakers. The advocacy ef-
forts of ACS CAN volunteers are
impacting people battling cancer in
many ways. Some of these efforts
include:
Advocating for more money
for cancer research
Encouraging lawmakers to
improve access to quality
affordable cancer care
Urging Congress to increase
funding for cancer programs
and to pass pain care education
legislation.
A Community of Support -
Having cancer is hard. Finding
help shouldn't be. That's why
the American Cancer Society
offers free programs and
services in thousands of
communities across the country
to ensure that cancer patients
and their loved ones do not have
to face cancer alone. Thanks to


your generous support, the
Society offers cancer patients
and their families a variety of
programs to help make the
cancer experience a little easier.
Examples include:

Free or low cost
transportation
assistance to and from cancer
treatments
Free lodging for those who
have to travel away from home
for treatment
Free wigs and assistance with
treatment-related physical side
effects
Emotional support programs
that connect newly diagnosed
breast cancer patients with
survivors
Cancer education classes
Clinical trials matching
service
An online support network

We are committed to connect-
ing people facing cancer with the
information, day-to-day help, and
emotional support they need in
the communities where they live -
to help people through every step of
their cancer journey By 2015, the.
American Cancer Society aims to
prevent almost five million addi- -
tional deaths from cancer, avoid six
million new cancer diagnoses, and
measurably improve the quality of
life for people with the disease.
Your support brings us closer to
realizing these challenging goals
and makes a difference in the fight
against cancer!


Every dollar you pro-
vide to the American Can-
cer Society goes toward
eliminating cancer as a
major health concern.
Your donation is essential
to supporting our mission,
which fights cancer on
four fronts: research, edu-
cation, advocacy, and ser-
vice.
Research: The Ameri-
can Cancer Society 4s the
largest source of private,
nonprofit cancer research
funds in the United States,
second only to the federal
government. The Society
has had a hand in virtually
every major cancer break-
through of the past half-
century. With your help,
we can continue on this
path.

Fight

Back.
Cancer may have
won some battles, but
will never win the
war, We cancer fight-
ers will never stop
we're reaching for the
stars. Cancer's taken
too many lives, but
one day soon will be
no more. We'll fight
with faith and fight
with strength until our
spirits soar
So many battles
have been fought,
we've worked hard for
the cures, Our
thoughts, our hopes.
our dreams to win,
have kept our motives
pure. Never give up,
never surrender, our
battle cry proud and
strong, And one day
soon we'll see the
end, we pray it won't
be long.
Til cancer
breathes its final
breath, down for the
count, you'll
see, Never again to
hurt and kill, for no
rntre cancer there will
be, But for now, can-
cer take your stand,
soon we'll stop you in
your tracks, Never
give up, never surren-
der, Celebrate, Re-

James And Roy Phillips: Fronson Announces New Rule Regulating
Wam;ng with ,m;, miIu.e Identification And Movement Of Sheep And oats


1 5I I115 IIIII I allll lalIUUo


JAMES PHILLIPS


W" By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing,
Inc.
Quiet, unassum-
];i ing, hardworking and
l kind are words that
Describe James and
Roy Phillips. Sons of
Sthe late Cary and Em-
Smie Phillips, they are
father and grandfa-
Sthers who command
(not demand) respect
from others. They
also are proud farm-


ers, who raise cattle and lease much of their land to
Willie Agner.
James and Roy generously give their time to oth-
ers, including their home church, Midway Church of
God. Cattle ranchers and a semi-truck driver, they of-
ten see people broken down beside the road and they
will stop and help them. They make sure that the per-
son being helped knows that it has been done in the
name of Jesus.
Children love the Phillips brothers. Many times,
during the summer, they can be seen with their
grandchildren, nieces and nephews and friend's chil-
dren, allowing them to accompany them on the farm
while they work. Through this, they learn not only
the value of hard work by watching James Roy, but
they also learn the values of a mentor. James and Roy
show them Christian love and teach them as they
help them.
James is married to the former Margie Flowers.
They have four children, Jimmy (married to Saman-
tha), Joyce (married to Steve Slaven), Jason (married
to Dawn) and Jed (married to Selena) and ten grand-
children.
Roy is married to the former Bertha Jean Rye.
They have three children, Buddy, Chad and Cary and
one grandchild.
James and Roy also have a brother, Turner, and
sister, Annie Laura, who are not involved in the fam-
ily farming or trucking business.

Madison County Included

In Florida Farm Bureau

Disaster Declaration
Florida Farm Bureau Federation today expressed
appreciation on behalf of its members who are agricultural
producers for U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Edward T.
Shafer's declaration of 36 Florida counties as disaster areas
as a result of losses caused by rainfall, flash flooding, high
winds, lightning and multiple tornadoes associated with
Tropical Storm Fay Gov. Charlie Crist requested the decla-
ration in September.
The following counties have been designated primary
natural disaster areas: Alachua, Baker, Bay Bradford, Bre-
vard, Charlotte, Clay Collier, Columbia, Dixie, Duval, Fla-
gler, Gilchrist, Glades, Hamilton, Hendry Highlands,
Holmes, Indian River, Jefferson, Lee, Leon, Madison, Mari-
on, Martin, Nassau, Okeechobee, Putnam, Seminole, St.
Johns, St. Lucie, Suwannee, Union, Volusia, Wakulla and
Washington.
Producers in contiguous counties are also eligible to be
considered for assistance from FSA, provided eligibility re-
quirements are met. Those counties are Broward, Calhoun,
Citrus, De Soto, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Hardee, Jackson,
Lafayette, Lake, Levy Liberty Miami-Dade, Monroe, Orange,
Osceola, Palm Beach, Polk, Sarasota, Sumter, Taylor and
Walton.
"The designation makes producers in designated coun-
ties and contiguous counties eligible to be considered for as-
sistance from the Farm Service Agency provided eligibility
requirements are met," said Florida Farm Bureau President
John L. Hoblick.
Assistance includes FSA emergency loans and the Sup-
plemental Revenue Assistance Program (SURE), which was
approved as part of the new farm bill.

Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson today announced the upcom-
ing implementation of a new rule regulating the identifi-
cation and intrastate movement of sheep and goats. The
rule, effective October 10, is designed to prevent the
spread of scrapie, a fatal, degenerative disease of the ner-
vous system in these animals.
The rule requires that all sheep and goats moved in-
trastate for any reason, or when there is a change of own-
ership, must be identified by their flock/herd of birth, or
if that information is unknown, by the flock/herd from
which they originated. Only identification methods ap-
proved by the United States Department of Agriculture
(USDA) can be used. These include official USDA ear
tags, identification tattoos, or implanted electronic mi-
crochips.
The new rule is being done in conjunction with the
USDA's Scrapie Eradication' Program, which provides
standards for state and federal governments and the in-
dustry to monitor, control and eradicate the disease from
domestic flocks and herds in the United States. The USDA
regulates interstate movement of sheep and goats but the


state rule was necessary to ensure the same standards are
followed for animals moved within the state's borders.
"It is imperative that the federal government and all
the states work together on this eradication program,"
Bronson said. "In today's marketplace, animals are often
moved to many locations. It's important to be able to
quickly determine where they are from if they are diag-
nosed with scrapie."
Information about the flock or herd of origin is nec-
essary because an infected animal may not show clinical
symptoms for up to five years, making it more difficult to
diagnose and trace back to the original herd to look for a
source or other infected animals.
The department's Division of Animal Industry is
launching an education effort to get word of the new rule
out to producers, dealers, auction markets, petting zoos, 4-
H clubs, and any other entities that deal with goats and
sheep.
For more information about Administrative Code
Rule 5C-29, the scrapie rule, contact the Department's Di-
vision of Animal Industry at (850) 410-0900 or visit

Cowboys ReMain Undefeated After Oig Win On National Telev8isio"


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
"Trick or Treat?" said the undefeated
Godby Cougars when they rang the door-
bell at Boot Hill on Halloween night. Un-
fortunately for the visitors, the response
wasn't grandma with a bowl of chocolate.
Instead, Uncle Frankie and the boys from
Madison County opened the door, not to
mention another can they opened, hand-
ing the Cougars their first loss and a
long, late, lonely trip back to Tallahassee.
Sports media giant ESPN moved up
and down the sidelines with the action
from six different positions, including
two end-zone towers. The tens of thou-
sands of viewers who got their first op-
portunity to see the Cowboy showcase
were not disappointed. As the clock
ticked down to zero, displaying the 50-33
Madison County victory, every fan left
well rewarded.
In addition to the ESPN-U High
School Sports audio/video techs and tow-
ers, media coverage included WTXL ABC
27-Tallahasee, the Sunshine Network, the
Tallahassee Democrat, rivals.com and the
Madison County Carrier
The game opened up with two early
turnovers by the Cowboys. The Cougars
took advantage of the good field position,
converting each into a touchdown, al-
though Quanta Barfield, who spoiled the
Godby offense all night, blocked the extra
point on the second score, giving the
Cougars a quick 13-0 lead that stunned
the crowd but not Coach Frankie Carroll.


"We've been down before and we
knew it was a long game. The players
and coaches responded. They stepped up
like champions," Carroll noted.
The first quarter remained slow and
sloppy Between television timeouts,
penalties and turnovers, the first quarter
lasted almost an hour. Along the way
though, the Cowboys tightened it up on
both offense and defense.
Now with Josh Arnold under center,
Madison County cracked the code on the
Godby defense and put the hammer down
on Godby standout quarterback, A. J.
Graham. As they did, the Cowboys creat-
ed a few turnovers of their own, first con-
verting a bad snap, then an interception
and a fumble before the quarter ended.
The crowd went absolutely Cowboy!
when the quarter ended with the boys up
21-13.
The energy at Boot Hill rose with
each hit and score, as did the frustration
in the Cougar defense. Offensive Coordi-
nator Mike Coe executed a series of run-
ning back options to perfection, which in-
cluded a number of passes.
The Godby defense was committed
fully to the Cowboy rush, which typically
is essential to have any chance against
one of the best rushing teams in the
state. In this instance, however, especial-
ly considering the speed of Chris Thomp-
son to get outside, Coe confused the God-
by defense by having the Madison run-
ning back pull up and pass. It was like
watching a flea-flicker fantasy that play-


ground friends trace in the dirt. In this
instance, however, it was brought to life
with professional precision.
Once the Cowboys got ahead, they
never lost the lead, although kudos go out
to A. J. Graham and the Cougar's re-
ceivers, especially Kessey Graham (no re-
lation to A.J.), for three long touchdown
passes. In the end though, no Cougar of-
fensive strategy was a match for Madison
County's defensive eye-in-the-sky, Defen-
sive Coordinator Rod Williams.
Scoring was as follows:
Q1 9:21 Graham to Downs Cow-
boys 0, Cougars 7
Q1 7:48 Graham, 2-yard run, extra
point blocked Cowboys 0, Cougars 13
Q1- 3:08 Thompson to Hatten Cow-

The Madison County Cowboys are
now 7-0, looking to Dixie County next
week. It is a district game, and although
the Cowboys have clinched the district,
the community is urged to come out and
continue the support that have made
Cowboy fans a main ingredient in Cow-
boy football. GO COWBOYS!

"Florida's 2007 Class 2A Football State Champions"

Dear Cowboy Football Fans,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support last
Friday night. What an atmosphere it was to play a high school football game.
Looking up in the stands seeing them full of maroon, with cowbells ringing and
pom poms flying, that is something some of our coaches and players will never
forget. Our players fed off the energy from the crowd and as always, you all were
full of cheers for the Cowboys. Again, thanks for always being there for the
Cowboys no matter where we are playing, you are there.
I would also like to thank Mr. Ben Killingsworth, our principal, and Mrs. Lou
Miller, Our Superintendant, for allowing us to play on ESPNU. Without their
support the game would have never happened. When you see them, let them
know you appreciate us having this opportunity.
Next, I would like to thank the Band (Mr. Geoff Hill) and the cheerleaders
(Ms. Judy Hill), Ms. Letha Gervin, and Mr. Bart Alford for putting together the pep
rally on Thursday night. That set the tone for the entire game.
I would also like to thank our coaches. Without a doubt, they are the best
coaching staff not only in Florida, but in the country. Our coordinator (Mike Coe-
Offense, Rod Williams and Bubba Carroll- Defense, Travis Hodge- Special Teams)
put together a great game plan. Our other assistants (Greg Ray- Line backers,
Morris Bell and Richard Jackson- Wide receivers, Kieth Solomon and Daniel
McKnight- Scout team Defense, Jamie Carroll and John Sirmon-Scout Team
Offense) helped to implement that plan and did a great job. These guys put in a
lot of long hours and hard work to make our program successful.
Most of all, I would like to thank our players. The character these young
men showed Friday night, after coming back from being down 13-0, was
something to be proud of. These young men work extremely hard and it showed
on Friday night by the way they played. Fellas it was a job well done!
Again thanks to everyone involved with Cowboy Football.
Frankie Carroll
Head Football Coach

The Vaquero Band gets loud for Madison County during the Godby game. The Cowboys scrap for one of the many fumbles given up by both Madison Coun-
ty and Godby. Between the cool night air, ESPN and Halloween, apparently a few tricks
;,' r-.' ..:.. .' were in store for both teams, however, the Cowboys came out with the 50-33 victory.

FLORIDA GAS TRANSMISSION COMPANY
PROPOSES PIPELINE EXPANSION TO
SUPPLY YFLORIDA CLEAN ENERGY NEEDS

The fing October 31st

On October 31, 2008, Florida Gas Transmission Company, LLC (FGT) filed an
application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity with the Federal
Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to construct an expansion of its existing
interstate pipeline system. The project has been designated the Phase VIII
Expansion Project and has been assigned Docket No. CP09-17-000 at the FERC.

Flori*da as Transmislon -your clean energypartner

FGT is Florida's leader in providing clean energy solutions, safely and
reliably. FGT is an interstate natural gas pipeline with offices in Maitland,
Florida and Houston, Texas and employees at field offices along our pipeline
system. FGT operates a 4,900-mile pipeline system that runs from South Texas
to Homestead, Florida. FGT has been supplying the majority of Florida's
natural gas needs for almost 50 years through an extensive network of
underground pipelines.

Phase VII /Epansion Pro/ect fts srpe and puWpose

The Phase VIII Expansion Project refers to Florida Gas Transmission's
proposal to construct eleven pipeline loops, three new pipeline segments, add
compression at eight existing compressor stations, construct one new compressor
station, three new meter stations, two meter station upgrades, and associated
auxiliary facilities. FGT proposes to construct 357.3 miles of 24-inch, 36-inch
and 42-inch diameter mainline loops, approximately 89.8 miles of 30-inch new
mainline and approximately 36.1 miles of 20-inch and 24-inch diameter new
lateral pipelines. The project also includes the acquisition from Florida Power &
Light of approximately 22.7 miles of an existing 20-inch lateral connecting FGT's'
mainline. Compression horsepower additions totaling 213,600 will be constructed
as part of the project. FGT is requesting authorization from the Pipeline and
Hazardous Materials Safety Administration to operate certain segments of
its existing pipeline system in addition to portions of the proposed pipeline expan-
sion at greater pressures than currently authorized. This authorization would
eliminate the need to construct an additional 80.5 miles of 36-inch
mainline loops. The proposed in service date for the project is April 1, 2011,
with the exception of one new lateral segment in which it has been requested to be
completed by July 1, 2010.
The purpose of the Phase VIII Expansion Project is to deliver needed
natural gas volumes to six electric generation utilities within the state of Florida.

How Landowners are affected

A pipeline normally requires a permanent 50-foot wide right-of-way. During
construction, FGT will need an additional 50-75 feet of workspace next to the
permanent right-of-way. FGT may also need temporary workspace in certain
areas, such as road, railroad, or stream crossings, to accommodate particular con-
struction activities. Property owners are entitled by laiv to receive compensation
for having a pipeline on their property. FGT will Xegotiate with the property
owners to receive approvals with a signed easement for needed property rights.
To the extent that FGT is unable to negotiate easement rights with landowners
whose property the pipeline construction impacts, such easement rights may be
determined in accordance with the eminent domain laws of the state in which your
property is located.state in which your property is located.

The Sapps Make An O-Cike Entrance


Into Te Downtown festivities

There wasn't a storm in sight and not one house flew 'round
But the Sapp family made an Oz like entrance into Madison's beautiful downtown
Merchant's lined the street, like something out of Emerald City
Greeting their many guests some scary some pretty

They made their way down the brick lined streets
Saying to all, with a smile, "trick or treat"

At the end of the night, Dorothy wished to go home
And with the click of her heels we all were gone.

We would like to thank all the folks that participated in this wonderful community
event that kept our children safe and made for a wonderful time for our family.






Understanding Recent Changes In The FDIC


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
As the nation watches banks with
a cautious eye, the federal government
has taken additional steps to safe-
guard deposits and boost consumer
confidence with revisions to the Feder-
al Deposit Insurance Corporation
(FDIC), a 75-year old insurance pro-
gram. The FDIC is a government
agency that protects depositors
against the loss of insured deposits if
a participating bank or savings associ-
ation fails.
The FDIC was established in 1933
and since its introduction no deposi-
tor has ever lost a single penny of
FDIC-insured funds, according to the
agency. So now, in response to the ris-
ing financial crises, there has been an
increase ini coverage limits.
The government's $700 billion
bailout package temporarily raises the
basic limit on account insurance cov-
erage from $100,000 to $250,000 per de-
positor.
"This Am

maintain
confidence in the banking system and
the marketplace," FDIC Chairwoman
Sheila C. Bair said in a statement.
'And clearly the public's confidence is
key to a healthy and stable economy."
As part of the increase, the FDIC
raised the premiums each participat-
ing institution pays into the fund from
6.3 cents for every $100 in deposits to
13.5 cents. Beginning in the second
quarter of 2009, riskier institutions
will be required to pay an even larger
share.
"The public can be sure that we
will always have enough money to pro-
tect their insured deposits," Bair
added.
This is an important time for con-
sumers to find out what type of ac-


counts are covered by FDIC insurance
and develop a plan to stay within the
limits because there are products and
services that are not covered. Cover-
age is automatic at banks and savings
and loans that offer coverage. The eas-
iest ways to find out if a bank offers
FDIC-insured accounts is to simply
ask a representative and to look for
the FDIC logo on signs and on cus-
tomer literature.
Look for this statement, autho-
rized by the FDIC, that insured insti-
tutions display and print in customer
materials: "On October 3, 2008, FDIC
deposit insurance temporarily in-
creased from $100,000 to $250,000 per
depositor through December 31, 2009."
FDIC insurance covers funds in de-
posit accounts such as checking and
savings accounts, money market de-
posit accounts and certificates of de-
posit (CDs). Each deposit-aceotmrt
owned by one person is temporarily
capped at $250,000, while joint ac-

ment accounts are insured up to

Coverage also applies to deposits
accounts owned by corporations, part-
nerships, unincorporated associa-
tions, employee benefit plans and gov-
ernment entities, although banks, bro-
kerages and insurance companies pro-
vide products that do not qualify.
FDIC insurance does not cover finan-
cial products such as stocks, bonds,
mutual fund shares, life insurance
policies, annuities or municipal secu-
rities.

By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
All about the kiddos, Halloween at
Laura's Wee Folks was extra special this
year. Everyone got dressed up in their
Halloween costumes and no one had to
leave the building as candies were hand-
ed out, treats were shared and tricks
were the furthest thing from these Wee
minds as they had their own contest.
With a special visit from local law
enforcement, Officers Jimbo Roebuck
and Jeff Rosenberg visited the costumed
tots for a judging contest. Coming in
first place for the one-year-old group was
Caleb Adams as Robin. Kayla Harville
took second as a beautiful princess and
Mika Jenkins was a third place doctor


For the two-year-olds, Blaine Smith won
first with his cow costume, Desmon
Hunter sat next to him as the second
place cowboy that ropes 'em in and
Johnathan Whigham was man's best
friend in third. The three- and four-year-
old group had a police officer in first
place played by Logan Hart. Princess
Anna Ebberson was a lovely second and
Ethan Bochnia made a great climbing
monkey as he clung to the pillars, posts
and was the third place winner.
With sticky fingers and happy
smiles, it looked as though everyone had
a Happy Halloween at Laura's Wee
Folks.
