Ashley Farms Receives



State Forestry Stewardship Award


Turning a working to-
bacco farm into a self-sus-
taining showcase of mul-
tiple-use and habitat di-
versity is a daunting task,
but the Ashley Family of
Madison County, has cer-
tainly succeeded. In cere-
monies at their farm here
on Thursday, November 6,
Don Ashley and his sister,
Theo Ashley Meadows, re-
ceived, on behalf of their
family, well-deserved
recognition as Florida's
Forest Stewardship
Landowner of the Year.
Following the award
presentation, a tour of the
property showing many


planned and ongoing prac-
tices and many, many ac-
complishments was con-
ducted and attended by
about 60 interested
landowners, agency repre-
sentatives, and guests.
This tour provided excel-
lent examples for others
interested in doing the
same for their property
and also identified avail-
able assistance sources.
The Florida Forest
Stewardship Program is
one such source. A volun-
tary program begun in
1990, the Forest Steward-
ship Program requires no
contractual obligations


from participating
landowners. The Pro-
gram provides a detailed,
written management plan
for landowners who own
at least 20 acres of forest-
land and are interested in
multiple land use objec-
tives. Certified Forest
Stewards also receive a
sign for their property, a
plaque, and local publicity
(if desired).
Madison County has a
long history of participa-
tion in the Forest Steward-
ship Program and one of
the highest participation
rates in the State. Cur-
rently, 380 landowners


with nearly 100,000 acres
are enrolled in the Pro-
gram in Madison County,
including the Ashley Fam-
ily.

If you'd like to see if your
property qualifies for the
Forest Stewardship Pro-
gram (or need any other
assistance related to man-
aging your Madison Coun-
ty timberland), contact
the Madison County
Forester by phoning
850.973.5115, mailing to
flemini@doacs.state.fl.us,

Police Officer Charged With Domestic Violence

By Jacob Bembry

A Madison Police Department sergeant was arrested on domestic violence charges on Thursday, November 6.
According to a Madison County Sheriff's office report, William Greene was arrested without incident after
his ex-wife, who had reportedly been at his home, said that he threatened to kill her.
Greene was at a relative's home eating, when the law officers arrived at his house and contacted him via cell
phone. He then went to his home to meet with the police officers. He was later booked at the county jail and was
released on bail.
MPD Chief Rick Davis placed Greene on administrative leave, pending the outcome of the investigation.

The Important Thing To Remember
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
"There is nothing wrong with change, if it is in the
right direction" Winston Churchill
STuesday's election brought changes to the American
and to Madison County's political offices. While some of-
ficials kept their posts, the country will have its first
black president, and Madison County will have a new
sheriff and two new county commission members.
The Sheriff's race was a tough campaign between
good men with no-party affiliation candidate Ben Stew-
art emerging as the winner by 243 votes with Democrat
Opie Peavy coming in a close second. Kenny Johnson, an
independent, finished third in the race.
The county commission will also feature two new
fresh faces with Justin Hamrick winning his District 1
race handily over Ronnie Ragans and Corky Brandies.
Hamrick, who is 26 years old, will be the youngest coun-
ty commissioner in a long time, if not the youngest in
the county's history. Renetta Parrish will serve as the
District 2 commissioner after defeating Ronnie Moore in
the September race. Parrish is the first female to hold
her district's commission seat and only the.second fe-
male commissioner in Madison County history The late
Marybelle James was the first one, serving in the Dis-
trict 4 seat now held by Alfred Martin. Roy Ellis defeat-
ed Republican challenger Mark Branham in the District
5 race. Ellis will now be a three-term county commis-
sioner.
The School Board will remain the same for at least
the next two years as Clyde Alexander soundly defeated

VIEWPOINTS & OPINIONS


Do You Remember When..


?


All the girls had ugly
gym uniforms?
It took five minutes
for the TV warm up?
Nearly everyone's
Mom was at home when
the kids got home from
school?
Nobody owned a
purebred dog?
When a quarter was
a decent allowance?
You'd reach into a
muddy gutter for a penny?
Your Mom wore ny-
-lons that came in two
pieces?
All your male teach-
ers wore neckties and fe-
male teachers had their
hair done every day and
wore high heels?
You got your wind-
shield cleaned, oil
checked, and gas pumped,
without asking, all for
free, every time? And you
didn't pay for air?
And, you got trading
stamps to boot?
Laundry detergent
had free glasses, dishes or
towels hidden inside the
box?


It was considered a
great privilege to be taken
out to dinner at a real
restaurant with your par-
ents?
They threatened to
keep kids back a grade if
they failed . and they
did?
When a 57 Chevy was
everyone's dream car...to
cruise, peel out, lay rub-
ber or watch submarine
races, and people went
steady?
No one ever asked
where the car keys were
because they were always
in the car, in the ignition,
and the doors were never
locked?
Lying on your back
in the grass with your
friends and saying things
like, "That cloud looks
like a" and playing base-
ball with no adults to help
kids with the rules of the
,game?
Stuff from the store
came without safety caps
and hermetic seals be-
cause no one had yet tried
to poison a perfect

stranger?
When being sent to
the principal's office "Was
Nothing Compared To
The Fate That Awaited
The Student At Home"?
Basically we were in
fear for our lives, but it
wasn't because of drive-
by shootings, drugs,
gangs, etc. Our parents
and grandparents were a
much bigger threat!
But we survived be-
cause their love was
greater than the threat.
Do You Remember...
Nancy Drew, the
Hardy Boys, Laurel and
Hardy, Howdy Doody and
the Peanut Gallery, the
Lone Ranger, The Shadow
Knows, Nellie Bell, Roy
and Dale, Trigger and
Buttermilk.
As well as summers
filled with bike rides,
baseball games, Hula
Hoops, bowling and visits
to the pool, and eating
Kool-Aid powder with
sugar.

Do you remember a.
time when...
Decisions were made
by going "eeny-meeny-
miney-moe"?
Mistakes were cor-
rected by simply exclaim-
ing, "Do Over!"?


"Race issue" meant
arguing about who ran
the fastest?
Catching the fireflies
could happily occupy an
entire evening?
It wasn't odd to have
two or three "Best
Friends"?
The worst thing you
could catch from the op-
posite sex was cootiess"?
Having a weapon in
school meant being
caught with a slingshot?
Saturday morning
cartoons weren't 30-
minute commercials for
action figures?
"Oly-oly-oxen-free"
made perfect sense?


Spinning around,
getting dizzy, and falling
down was cause for gig-
gles?
The worst embar-
rassment was being
picked last for a team?
War was a card
game?
Baseball cards in the
spokes transformed any
bike into a motorcycle?
Taking drugs meant
orange-flavored chewable
aspirin?
Water balloons were
the ultimate weapon?
If you can remember
most or all of these, then
you have lived!


Opening the new Wild Plum restaurant in
Madison, Marina Greenwood and her .husband
Kevin O'Malley are also new to the area. Moving
from Tampa, she is originally from Moscow, Rus-
sia. Specializing in skin care and anti-aging at the
Daylight Spa, it is true faith that keeps her going.
When asked how she and her husband ended
up in Madison, Marina said they just fell in love
with Madison the first time they saw it.
"Its beautiful here, the trees, the streets. It is
like an island of peace sitting in the middle of the
rest of the world."

VIEWPOINTS & OPINIONS


A Busy Week
This past week was busy as voters turned out in
droves, there was a big gospel music festival at Yogi Bear
Campgrounds and there was a hobo supper and hayride
at Midway Church of God.
The gospel music festival was fantastic as a number
of well-known gospel artists performed before some
pretty big crowds from all over the southeast. These
artists included the Old Paths, Naomi and the Segos and
the Jeff Treece Band. My family,and I enjoyed im-
mensely as did most, if not all, of the people there.
The election last week had one of the biggest
turnouts in Madison County history as people enjoyed
one of their greatest privileges as Americans.
On Saturday evening, a lot of people enjoyed a hobo
stew and chili prepared by Elvoye Thomas and his crew
at Midway Church of God and went on a hayride with
the trailer and hay provided by James Phillips and crew.
Happy anniversary wishes go out to Willie and Gail
Carter, who celebrated a big day this week!
Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the
corner...
That's all the news for this week! Have a great week
and a beautiful forever! May God bless each and every
one of you!

Did you Know...
Peter The Great sent Russians to be educated
in the West, and imported skilled labor, mili-
tary and administrative experts from abroad.
He encouraged smoking, but taxed tobacco.
Because European men usually were clean
shaven, he taxed Russians wearing beards. He
modernized the calendar, simplified numerals,
and encouraged private industry and mining.
Remarkably, Peter managed to modernize Rus-
sia without borrowing money for his state.
Instead, he taxed his citizens heavily.


S Friday
evening, I was in-
vited to attend the
final reunion of
the famed Flying
Tigers at the Rain-
water Conference
Center in Valdosta.
The legendary Chi-
na flyers from
World War II chose
Valdosta because


National

the host unit at Moody Air Force Base is the
23rd Fighter Wing, today's modern Flying
Tigers.
This was the last reunion because there
aren't many Tigers left and those that could
attend will soon be gone. I was at a dinner for
the 75th Fighter Squadron and there were six
old Tigers present. One was confined to a
wheel chair. As I looked at these elderly men,
it was hard to imagine them as 20 year old
devil-may-care aviators that tore into Japan-
ese air formations some 65 years ago.
The Flying Tigers began innocently
enough in 1937 when Louisiana native Cap-
tain Claire Chennault retired for the Army
Air Corps and was hired by the Chinese to re-
build their decimated Air Force. Three years
later, he began to form the American Volun-
teer Group around a handful of surplus P40
Warhawks and young aviators that he could
hire away from the Army and Navy To strike
fear in the hearts of the enemy he decorated
the P-40's inlet with shark's teeth, a tradition
that carries on today with a similar design
painted on the nose of Moody's A-10 Thun-
derbolt II.
The truth be told, the AVG was com-
prised of mercenary pilots. They went for
the gold, but they also foresaw America's
coming conflict with Japan. When that oc-
curred on December 7, 1941, the AVG was
soon to be incorporated into the Army Air
Force. When that occurred in the summer of
1942, some of the Americans converted while
others kept their employment with the Chi-
ang Kai-shek's government. One of the latter
was the late Robert "Moose" Moss of nearby
Moultrie. After the war, Moose Moss translat-
ed his fortune into a successful farming busi-
ness and a world-class diving facility that
bears his name and turns out some of Ameri-
ca's finest divers.
When Chennault's China flyers came un-
der the umbrella of the AAF, he needed adult
supervision for these young flyers. He chose a
Georgian, Colonel Bob Scott. "Scotty" had
been an instructor pilot in 1937 for Colin Kelly
at Randolph Field. Scott led the Tigers, now
designated the 23rd +Fighter Group, into bat-
tle with the Japanese for about six months,


racking up 22 kills.
When ordered
back to the US, he
.. wrote an autobiog-
raphy entitled God
is My Co-Pilot,
which Warner
Brothers turned
into a popular
movie by the same
name.
The Flying
Tigers continued to build an enviable flying
reputation, protecting the famed Burma Road
that provided badly needed supplies through
the Himalayan passes into China. Despite in-
ternal problems between Allies and services
and corruption by Chiang's administration,
China stayed in the war thanks in large part to
the heroic service and sacrifice of the Tigers.
At war's end, the Flying Tigers staged
their first reunion in 1946 and have met more
or less annually since then, but their ranks are
thinning and soon the original Flying Tigers
will be memories. The last few decided that
2008 would be their last hurrah.
Since 1942, each 75th Fighter Squadron
commander has carried the label of Shark
and a sequential number I think the current
commander is Shark 75. Shark 1 missed this
reunion last year the famous David Lee
"Tex" Hill passed away at the age of 92. But
his widow, 'Amazing" Mazie was there, radi-
ant as always along with her grandson Reagan
Schaupp who has authored the most recent bi-
ography of his famous grandfather
Shark 2, the great ace Johnny Allison, was
present -the body may beweak but the timbre
of his voice is still clear and commanding.
There were a few young folks, the current Fly-
ing Tigers from Moody but not too many from
the 75th. They have been in Afghanistan for
about six months flying combat sorties
against America's enemies. I sat at a table
with about five of their wives including one
young lady who will give birth to her first baby
infourweeks. Daddy will miss the birth of his
daughter, but they should be reunited before
too long.
During the recently concluded campaign,
the president-elect suggested that our aviators
were "air-raiding villages and killing civil-
ians" in Afghanistan. Now that he will soon
become commander-in-chief, I hope he real-
izes what a disservice such statements are to
the professionals who go into harm's way to
defend our freedoms.
Now the Flying Tigers that defended Chi-
na fade into the sunset, but they gave us a re-
markable legacy which will never die. "Here's
a toast" to the daring young men and their fly-
ing machines.

LOCAL & REGIONAL CRIME BLOTTER



Miami Physician Sentenced To 84 Months



In Prison For $26.2 Million Medicare Fraud


Miami physician Ronald Harris, 58, was sentenced No-
vember 4 to 84 months in prison and medical clinic adminis-
trator Mariela Rodriguez, 40, was sentenced today to 70
months in prison for defrauding the Medicare program in
connection with large scale HIV infusion fraud schemes,
Acting Assistant Attorney General Matthew Friedrich of
the Criminal Division and U.S. Attorney R. Alexander Acos-
ta of the Southern District of Florida announced.
For Harris's role in a $26.2 million scheme, Judge Cecilia
M. Altonaga of the U.S. District Court for the Southern Dis-
trict of Florida ordered that he be placed on three years of su-
pervised release following his release from prison, and pay
$9,882,274 in restitution to the Medicare Trust Fund, in addi-

Teenager Arrested


For Pot Possession
A Madison teenager was arrested for marijuana pos-
session following a traffic stop on Sunday, November 9.
According to a Madison Police Department report,
Patrolman Eric Gilbert stopped Nicholas Rashawn
Davis, 18, of Madison.
Following the routine traffic stop, Gilbert was grant-
ed permission to search Davis and his vehicle. During
the search, Gilbert found a marijuana blunt.
Davis was arrested and charged with possession of
marijuana less than 20 grams. He was taken to the Madi-
son County Jail.


tion to his prison sentence.
On Aug. 26, 2008, Harris pleaded guilty to one count of
conspiracy to defraud the United States, to cause the submis-
sion of false claims and to pay health care kickbacks; one
count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud; and three
counts of submitting false claims to the Medicare program.
Harris pleaded guilty in connection with his role as the med-
ical director for Physicians Med-Care and Physicians Health
Med-Care (Physicians Health), two Miami-area HIV clinics
that purported to provide HIV infusion services to Medicare
beneficiaries.
Harris admitted during his plea hearing that between
August 2002 and March 2004, he conspired with others to op-
erate two Miami HIV infusion clinics that were owned and
controlled by Carlos and Luis Benitez and that were operated
for the sole purpose of committing Medicare fraud. Prior to
August 2002, Harris admitted he had no prior experience with
infusion therapy for HIV patients. Harris also admitted to
conspiring with others to pay cash kickbacks to the Medicare
beneficiaries, who attended Physicians Med-Care and Physi-
cians Health. Harris admitted that during his employment
with Physicians Med-Care and Physicians Health, he ap-
proved approximately $26.2 million worth of fraudulent med-
ical bills, signed documents containing false information
about treatments purportedly provided to HIV patients and
approved medically unnecessary treatments. As a result of
the fraud, the Medicare program paid approximately $17.5
million in fraudulent bills.
In a separate sentencing hearing, Chief U.S. District
Judge Federico Moreno, in the Southern District of Florida,
ordered that Rodriguez also serve three years of supervised
release following her release from prison and to pay $8,289,286
in restitution, in addition to her prison sentence, for her role
in'the HIV infusion scheme.
Rodriguez pleaded guilty on Aug. 26, 2008, to charges of
conspiracy to commit health care fraud and making false de-
clarations to a federal grand jury Rodriguez admitted that
she ran and served as the clinic administrator of Saint Jude
Rehab Center (Saint Jude) for owners Carlos and Luis Ben-
itez. She admitted that Saint Jude was operated solely for the
purpose of committing Medicare fraud. Rodriguez acknowl-


edged that she and her co-conspirators paid Medicare benefi-
ciaries cash kickbacks of $100 to $150 to induce them to visit
the clinic. Between June 2003 and November 2003, Rodriguez
admitted that Saint Jude submitted claims totaling approxi-
mately $11.3 million to the Medicare program for unneces-
sary HIV medication. Medicare paid Saint Jude approxi-
mately $8.2 million for these fraudulent claims. Finally, Ro-
driguez admitted that she gave false testimony in court on
June 14, 2004, when she stated under oath that she had no
knowledge of Medicare beneficiaries being paid cash kick-
backs at Saint Jude.
Carlos Benitez, Luis Benitez and Thomas McKenzie were
charged separately with health care fraud and money laun-
dering crimes in an indictment unsealed on June 11, 2008. Ac-
cording to the separate indictment, these co-conspirators al-
legedly provided the money and staff necessary to open the
HIV clinics, the Medicare patients that the clinics would bill
to the Medicare program and transportation for the HIV pa-
tients who visited the clinics. Also according the indictment,
Carlos and Luis Benitez were the true owners of the clinics.
The Benitez brothers and McKenzie were charged for their
roles at the clinics and eight other HIV infusion clinics. On
Sept. 18, 2008, McKenzie pleaded guilty to one count of con-
spiracy to commit health care fraud and one count of sub-
mitting false claims to the Medicare program, and admitted
to his role in a $119 million HIV infusion fraud scheme. The
Benitez brothers remain fugitives, as does Enrique Gonzalez,
Harris' co-defendant.
The cases were prosecuted by Assistant Chief Hank
Bond Walther and Trial Attorneys John K. Neal and N.
Nathan Dimock of the Criminal Division's Fraud Section,
and were investigated by the FBI and the Department of
Health and Human Services' Office of the Inspector General.
The cases were brought as part of the Medicare Fraud Strike
Force (MFSF), supervised by Deputy Chief Kirk Ogrosky of
the Criminal Division's Fraud Section and US. Attorney
Acosta of the Southern District of Florida. Since the incep-
tion of MFSF operations in 2007, federal prosecutors have in-
dicted 104 cases with 184 defendants in Los Angdes and Mia-
mi. Collectively these defendants fraudulently billed the
Medicare program for more than half a billion dollars.
DOC And FDLE Arrest Correctional
Officer For Sexual Battery
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE)
and the Florida Department of Corrections' Inspector Gen-
eral's Office (DOC) recently arrested Geno LewisHawkins,
43, a correctional officer, for sexual battery
The investigation began when DOC alerted FILE to the
possibility that Hawkins was involved in a sexualrelation-
ship with a Gadsden Correctional Facility inmate FDLE
and DOC began the joint investigation in Aug. 2008.
Hawkins, an employee of Corrections Corpontion of
America, was arrested at his home without incident and
charged with one count of sexual battery He was )ooked
into the Leon County Jail without bond and faces z maxi-
mum 30 year prison sentence.
The investigation is ongoing.

Dividends Still Worth Pursuing if
Tax Laws Change
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Tax laws change all the time and these changes can
have a big impact on your investments. But if you have
some inkling of these changes in advance, you may be
able to make decisions that can help you stay on track
toward achieving your financial goals. Such is the case
with dividend-paying stocks.
Until a few years ago, dividends were taxed at your per-
sonal income tax rate. But changes in tax laws resulted
in a 15 percent tax rate on dividends for most people.
This rate was set to expire in 2008, but it has been
extended until the end of 2010. At that point, dividends
will again be taxed at your individual tax rate, which cur-
rently could be as high as 35%.
Of course, things can change. As an alternative to tax-
ing dividends at an individual's income tax rate, law-
makers could decide to impose a higher fixed rate than
the current 15 percent. At this point and maybe at
any point no one can predict these things.
Nonetheless, as you prepare your investment strategy,
you may want to factor in the possibility that, in the near
future, dividends will be taxed at a higher rate than they
are now. If this happens, should you still consider
adding dividend-paying stocks to your portfolio?
To answer that question, you'll want to assess the ben-
efits that dividend-paying stocks may offer, regardless
of how they are taxed. Here are a few of them:
Potential for rising income Some stocks have
paid and increased dividends for many years. So,
if you're looking for a possible source of rising income
that can help you combat the effects of inflation, you
might want to consider these types of stocks. (Keep in
mind, though, that companies may decrease or discon-
tinue dividends at any time without notice.)
Stability during market turmoil As you are no
doubt aware, the stock market has gone through some
difficult times for much of 2008. Generally speaking,
though, dividend-paying stocks are less volatile than
those stocks that don't pay dividends. Furthermorehis-
torically in down markets, dividend-paying stocks tend
to outperform non-dividend-paying stocks, although
past performance is not an indication of future results.
Ownership of quality companies Dividend-
paying stocks usually represent well-run businesses
that seek to reward their investors. In fact, these are the
companies that actually have money to pay the divi-
dends. And despite the many "fads" you can find in the
investment world, investing in quality companies never
goes out of style.
Ability to increase ownership shares If you
consistently reinvest your dividends, you'll boost the
number of shares you own. This can be particularly
beneficial when the market recovers and stock prices
rise.
If you invest in dividend-paying stocks, it would be
advantageous if the tax rate were to stay at its current
15 percent level. But even if the tax rate were to rise,
you've got plenty of good reasons to consider adding
these types of stocks to your portfolio so give them
some serious consideration.

situation.

Circus Wows Madison County


Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Michael Curtis, November 5, 2008 Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Michael Curtis, November 5; 2008
Magnificent horses, large and small, performed on Lanier Field for children of all ages when the Loomis Bros. Circus came to town on November 3.


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Loomis Bros. Circus came to Lanier Field for
two shows Monday evening, November 3, wowing
crowds with entertaining performances that includ-
ed a balancing elephant and fearless flying trapeze.
A combined audience of almost 1500 attended the
event sponsored by the Madison County Chamber of
Commerce and Tourism.
The day started with third graders from around
the county enjoying a behind-the-scenes field trip
where lions, tigers and elephants were viewed and
fed by excited kids, many of whom had never seen
these big entertainers in person. Later that same
day, first at 5:00 and then again at 7:30, the three-ring
show was unveiled to the cheers and awe of a packed


house.
Chamber Executive Director Ted Ensminger was
very pleased with the event and looks forward to
making it an annual stop.
"Loomis Brothers is a very unique circus be-
cause they offer such a good show and can make it
work in rural communities, not to mention it's a
great source of revenue for all concerned. As far as
the show, even the more quiet and conservative peo-
ple around town were seen cheering. Many sent me
emails stating how much they enjoyed it as well. It
was a big win for Madison County," Ensminger not-
ed.
Loomis Brothers Circus Manager and Ringmas-
ter, Justin Loomis, led the performance, which has
been in his family for generations. Additional circus
features included a popular clown, elephants, tigers,
acrobatics, horses and more, everything and then
some that one would expect from a quality family
velle.
The two most memorable performances came
during a spectacular finale, one from a beautiful
highly trained animal and the other from a beautiful
highly trained lady Okha the elephant began the
awesome ending by balancing on a large ball, actual-
ly walking the ball forward to the amazement of all
in attendance Minutes later, the audience lost


their breath, as a lovely trapeze artist closed the
show by performing amazing acrobatic stunts that
left everyone very satisfied for the affordable price of
admission.

AROUND MADISON COUNTY


Remember

Continued From Page 1A
Sandra Monlyn to retain his District 4 seat.
Jada Woods Williams won reelection to the Supervisor
of Elections office with a clear-cut win over Shane Roland.
Leonard Bembry, a distant relative of this writer,
was elected to the Florida House of Representatives by de-
feating Don Curtis.
Barack Obama became the first black president-elect
by defeating Republican John McCain.
Changes will be coming, even to Madison County The
changes will not be as drastic as everyone thinks, however.
They will come slowly and, in many cases, painlessly,
but they will come. Some of the changes will be good.
Some of the changes may not be so good but they will be
coming.
The important thing to remember is to remember that
mere men do not run Madison County and this country
God is still in control of everything. He appoints the lead-
ers of this country and of this world. I admit that I voted
for John McCain, but I believe that Barack Obama was
elected on God's appointment and that we should remem-
ber him and our country in prayer every day (A side note:
The reason that Obama was not on the front page of Fri-
day's newspaper was that this is a local weekly newspaper
and local news is our focus.)
If God-fearing men and women will remember to pray
and to live according to God's laws, everything will work
out for good.


THaNK 'you
We would like to extend
to our family and friends a
heartfelt thank you during
the loss of our Mother and
Father. Your thoughts,
prayers, cards, food, and
visits were an extension of
God's love to us and will be
remembered. We were
Blessed to have wonderful
parents and memories
throughout their long-lived
lives, and to God we are
grateful. We are also grate-
ful to you and our church
families New Home Baptist
Church and Saint Vincent
DePaul Catholic Church,
for the outpouring of your
love and sympathy We have
been comforted through
this difficult time knowing
that we had so many won-
derful friends and family to
help us through this.

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Kids are perceptive.
They notice when parents
act anxious and on edge
about money Rather than
let them wonder why Mom
and Dad are working so
much lately, or constantly'
talking about money, ex-
plain, on their level, what's
going on in the family's fi-
nancial world. Here are a
few other timeless tips for
creating a money-minded
child.
Explain to them how
much things cost Some
parents are surprised to
find out that their kids don't
have a very good grasp on
what things cost. A
great hands-on way to open
their eyes is to take them on
a "money tour" around the
house. For exam-
ple, kids might not under-
stand that hot water costs
more than cold water, or
that bumping up the heat re-
sults in higher power bills.
This exercise will teach
them how they can conserve
and thus help the family
save money One can also


pile up all of the bills for the
month and have them look
at the amount on each one.
Show them what the fami-
ly's cost of living is and
again reiterate the areas
where they can play a part
in reducing the costs.
Realize that kids learn
what they live It may sound
like common sense, but par-
ents are kids' most influen-
tial teachers.
When a parent rings up a
mountain of credit card
debt, tike out exorbitant
mortgages or car loans, and
fail to save anything, that's
what kids come to see as
normal. If parents model
unhealthy financial habits,
one can't realistically ex-
pect kids to simply "do as I
say, not as I do."
Deprogram them Kids
are constantly bombarded
with information about
what things cost, whether
it's the fancy sports car they
like or the wardrobe of their
favorite athlete or actor, not
to mention the 40,000 com-
mercials that the American
Academy of Pediatrics esti-
mates the average Ameri-

help kids earn their al-
lowance rather than just
have it handed over to them.
A well-implemented al-
lowance program can mim-
ic many money matters that
adults face every day. From
recognizing the need to earn
money to learning how to
responsibly and intelligent-
ly spend, save, and invest
their allowance, children
can gain a solid financial
footing from a young age.
Some experts recommend
paying 50 cents to $1per year
of age. So, for example, a
six-year-old child would
earn between $3 and $6 per
week."
Start them saving and
investing early It's never
too early to start saving, and
the sooner one can instill
the importance of saving
money into kids the better
After they start earning an
allowance, have children
save a significant portion of
their allowance money to-
ward longer-term goals,
such as college. Suggest
that children reserve about
one-third of their weekly
take for savings. As they ac-
cumulate more significant
savings over time, introduce
them to the concept of in-
vesting.
Reduce their exposure
to ads The primary path to
reduced exposure to ads is
to cut down on TV time.
When kids are in front of
the tube, have them watch
prerecorded material. Di-
rect the television viewing,
of younger children, in par-
ticular, toward videos and
DVDs. And for older kids, if
using digital video
recorders (DVRs), such as
TIVO, simply zap the ads.
But, when an ad does sneak
under the radar and set the
kids to begging, address it.

trips, whether for groceries
or something else, are likely
to be a kids' first encounter
with spending. They see
parents making decisions
based on what the family
needs, maybe see the occa-
sional coupon used, and will
observe how you pay. These
trips are a great time to
teach them lessons about
money,and the value of

Childproof your home now!
No parent wants their child to get hurt, but some accidents are just
unavoidable. There are ways, however, that you can reduce the risk of
accidents in your home. These include:
Make sure all baby equipment is in good condition.
Put guards on all unused electrical sockets.
Install safety locks on all windows.
Place safety latches on all cabinets, doors and toilet seats.
Gate off stairways, fireplaces and rooms that might pose a hazard.
Cushion the edges of furniture with adding or guards.
Shorten blind cords.
Use non-skid mats in bathtubs.
Store cleaning products, medication and other hazardous items out of
children's reach.
Turn pot handles inward when cooking and keep children away from
the stove.

After you've taken these precautions, get down on your hands and
knees and view your house from your child's perspective. You may see
,dfier hazardous areas. Even with the best of precautions taken, acci-
"'1 dents can happen. Be prepared by taking a first aid class and posting a
list of emergency numbers by the phone.

James Wilbanks, Ricky Bryan and Meghan Ortega.


"I see the great need
for a motivational factor

Nixon. "I am so excited

the benefits of reading
are beyond dispute "reg-

"I ran across a comment
by E. Tolle in one of his
books this week," said
Nixon. "He said by the
time an American be-
comes a senior citizen,
they have spent 15 years
in front of the television
set. This is a sad commen-
tary of our culture."
Already this term,
Nixon's students have be-
come extremely interest-
ed in reading and compet-

are already approaching
the first 10 book mark.
"Reading is a way to
embrace a different part
of life," said NFCC stu-

can be fun, sad, entertain-
ing, inspirational, motiva-
tional, or even a mystery"
NFCC student
Meghan Ortega is also en-
joying the reading assign-

cause it gives me a chance

said Ortega. "Reading al-

Students participat-

test must be enrolled at a

and must be taking a de-

"If you succeed in this
contest, the money will

said Townsend Press.
"Reading anywhere from

Nixon's challenge to
her students to compete
in the contest this term
is definitely getting stu-

reading. She hopes the
students will continue

Nixon.

The parents, students
and teachers attended Par-
ent Night at Madison County
Central Middle School on Oc-
tober 3 in the cafeteria. Par-
ents were provided informa-
tion on upcoming events,
goals for the current school
year.
"We discussed the im-
portance of parental involve-
ment and student achieve-
ment," Ronnie Williams, the
school's assistant principal,
said. "It is imperative that
families find the time to be
involved in school activities
with their children."
One way that Williams
noted to do this was to meet
every Tuesday night at the
MCCS library at 6 p.m. to
learn study and organiza-
tional skills, strategic read-
ing and math skills.
"This involvement will

noted.
.Williams also added,
"Family involvement is one
of the best investments that
a family can make."
Statistics show that stu-
dents who graduate from
high school earn, on average
$200,000 more in their life-
time than those students
who drop out. College gradu-
ates make an average of
$1,000,000 more.
The most important as-
pect of all Williams empha-
sized is that ALL parents and
families can enjoy these ben-
efits.
"It doesn't matter how
much formal education
you've had yourself or how
well you did in school, family
involvement is not depen-
dent upon your income, so-
cial-economic status, or daily
work schedule, it works for
children at all grade levels,"
Williams said.

By Fran Hunt
Special From
The Jefferson Journal
Aucilla Christian Acade-
my recognized the senior
football players and cheer-
leaders prior to the game Fri-
day night, October 31, against
Graceville. Don Anderson
served as the announcer for
the ceremony.
"Tonight, ACA's football
boosters and athletic commit-
tee are honored to have a spe-
cial recognition for our se-
nior football players and
cheerleaders. Since this is
the last time these seniors
will play or cheer on Aucilla's
football field as a team or
squad, we would like to thank
them, along with their fami-
lies, for the commitment and
dedication they have shown
to our athletic program. We
have some of the finest young
people in the world here at
Aucilla, and we are very
proud of them. We wish
them all of God's blessings
for the future," Anderson
said.

ACA Honors Bobby Thigpen


Aucilla Christian Acade-
my paid tribute to ACA alum-
nus, former professional
baseball pitcher for the
Chicago White Sox and
record holder, Bobby Thigpen
at halftime Friday during the
game against Graceville.
Thigpen was presented with
a plaque, which will be per-
manently placed at the base-
ball field where Thigpen rep-
resented the Aucilla War-
riors on the mound while in
attendance at the school. He
was also presented with a
framed photocopy of the
plaque and said it will be
placed with the other awards
presented to him over the
years in his trophy case.
Long-time Coach, Athlet-
ic Director and Athletic Com-
mittee Member Ray Hughes,
and Athletic Committee
members, Richard Fin-
layson, Demott Anderson,
Liz Bishop, Marsha Plaines,
Melissa Kinsey, Richard
Watt, and Joe Sadler made
the plaque presentation. His
mother, Donna Smith of Au-
cilla, accompanied him to the
field.
During the presentation
announcements, Thigpen
was noted for graduating
from Aucilla Christian Acad-
emy in 1981 and being voted
the MVP in his senior year in
football, basketball and base-
ball. He also went to play
baseball for Seminole Com-
munity College following
graduation, and then Missis-
sippi State University. While
at Mississippi State, he
played outfield and pitched,
including a College World se-
ries appearance.
After college, the Chica-
go White Sox drafted him and
he played for eight years in
the major leagues and two
years in Japan.. While pitch-
ing for the Chicago White
Sox in 1990, he broke the Ma-
: jor league single-season save
record with 57 saves, a record
that stood for 128 years. He
was voted the Chicago White
Sox MVP in 1990, and he also
played in the Major League
All-Star game in 1990. In
1993, he was traded to the
Philadelphia Phillies where
he pitched in a Major league
World Series.
Following the presenta-
tion, many gathered along
the sidelines, taking pho-
tographs of Thigpen and his
mother, Thigpen and Hughes,
,and Thigpen and the ACA
Athletic Committee Mem-
bers. The plaque read,
"Home of Bobby Thigpen;
1980-1981 Aucilla Christian
MVP in football, basketball
and baseball; played eight
years in the major leagues
and two. years in Japan;
Broke the Major League
saver record.with 57 saves in
1990 with the Chicago White
Sox (stood for 18 years); 1990
White Sox MVP; Played in
the Major League All Star
game in 1990; Played in the
1993 World series for the
Philadelphia Phillies."
Thigpen was both hon-
ored and delighted about the
presentation made to him by
his alma mater; so. much so,
he texted his son Robby in.
Tennessee at college and his
daughter Rachael, a sopho-
more in Shorecrest High
School in St. Petersburg, fill-

FLORIDA GAS TRANSMISSION COMPANY
PROPOSES A PIPELINE EXPANSION TO
SUPPLY FLORIDA 'S CLEAN ENERGY NEEDS

The Niling October31st

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.

F/or/da as Transms/lon -your clean energypa'er

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 VI Expansion Proect- Its scope and purpose

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 PhaseVIII Expansion Project is to deliver needed
natural gas volumes to six electric generation utilities within the state of Florida.

HowLen wnes 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 law to receive compensation
for having a pipeline on their property. FGT will negotiate 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.

How to obtain addMVona/l nfomatfon:

STHE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH RECOGNIZES
|U1la f NOVEMBER 9-15 AS NATIONAL NURSE PRACTITIONER WEEK


The Florida Department of Health (DOH) recog-
nizes nurse practitioners for their tremendous im-
pact on public health during National Nurse Practi-
tioner Week, November 9-15. Annually, National
Nurse Practitioner Week begins on the second Sun-
day of November and ends the following Saturday.
During this week, nurse practitioners will be hon-
ored through various statewide events, including ral-
lies, community health screenings, hospital events
and receptions.
"Nurse practitioners have evolved into a vital and
integral part of the health care team and system,"
said Jean L. Kline, R.N., B.S.N., M.P.H., Deputy Secre-
tary for Health Public Health Programs and State
Public Health Nursing Director. "This distinguished
group of primary health professionals has provided
public service for more than 40 years. Nurse practi-
tioners can be found not only providing health care
in practice settings, but also working to enrich their
communities."
National Nurse Practitioner Week highlights the
diverse ways in which nurse practitioners provide a
balanced approach to health promotion, prevention,
diagnosis and disease management. Nurse practi-
tioners are known for their accurate assessment and
diagnostic skills, partnering with patients and their
families to manage their health care, and obtaining
excellent outcomes. They provide exceptional pre-
ventive health and wellness care that is cost-effective.
DOH promotes, protects and improves the health
of all people in Florida. For more information about
public health nursing, visit the DOH website at
www.doh.state.fl. us/PHNursing/ index.html.


Question: My mouth burns all the time and feels
dry. My physician said I had a fungus. I took a fungus
Rx for two weeks and now the burning has come
back. What can I do?
Answer: Fungus can indeed cause burning mouth.
It makes your mouth feel like you have a mouthful of
jalapenos all the time. That is no fun!
I look to control the fungus to stop the pain since
Candida or thrush produces alcohol which burns the
tissues causing the painful sensation. The first three
places I look when diagnosing candida is recent his-
tory of antibiotics for illness, or dentures which are
worn 24/7, or dry mouth. Dentures should be re-
moved and soaked at night.
The dentures may need to be treated as well as the
mouth. For those that do not wear dentures Xerosto-
mia is frequently caused as a side effect of many
medications. Dry mouth is a side effect of over 400
medications, thyroid disease, diabetes, Sjorgrens
syndrome and others. It is a good idea to identify the
source of the dry mouth.
Many times we can lessen the severity with minor
changes in medications. I also suggest Biotene
mouthwash to moisten and soothe your mouth. So if
your have pain from dry mouth, see your dentist, he
can help you.
