'A grandchild should never be loved for love re-

nothing else. "
"Even if the first third of your life was dominated by
your parents, and the second third by your children, you
still have your grandchildren to salvage the remainder"
November is a special month in our family Abigail
(our granddaughter by love), turned 16 years old on
Thursday, Nov. 6. Cheltsie, our granddaughter (by
birth), will turn 16 years old on Thursday, November
27th.
The two girls are three weeks apart and have grown
up as best friends, since birth. They were inseparable
as toddlers, inseparable as children, and are still insep-
arable as teenagers. True best friends are a once in a
life-time gift, and Cheltsie and Abigail have that gift.
So I dedicate this column this week to our two spe-
cial granddaughters, on these very special days in their
lives. I'm glad they have each other to share life's spe-
cial milestone with.
Happy Birthday Cheltsie and Abigail Grandma

Cheltsie Kinsley, 3 years old


Thursday, Nov 27, will be the 16h birthday of my old-
est daughter, Cheltsie.
Last year, at this time, my column was entitled "My,
Oh My, How The Years Have Flown!" Now, here I sit, one
year later, asking myself that same exact question again.
Driver's licenses, dating, being more and more places
I'm not ...... it just gets scarieti and scarier. But we raise
our children, to the best of our ability, and we try to give
them the knowledge and courage to stand on their own
two feet, when we cannot be with them. The most that
we can hope for is that when they are "alone" some of
that guidance, and knowledge, sticks with them and that
they can make the best decisions/choices, on their own.
Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the'way he ih6uld
go: and when he is old, he will not depart from'it."'r "T`-
Proverbs 29:17 "Correct your children, and you will be
proud; they will give you satisfaction."
Ephesians 6:4 "Fathers, do not make your children an-
gry, but raise them with the training and teaching of the
Lord."
Colossians 3:21 "Fathers, do not nag your children. If
you are too hard to please, they may want to stop trying.".
Matthew 18:10 "Be careful. Don't think these little chil-
dren are worth nothing. I tell you that they have angels in
heaven who are always with my Father in heaven. "
So, on this milestone of a lifetime; I'd like to wish
Cheltsie a very Happy Birthday! I am so proud of you!
God blessed me well-16 years ago!!!
Until then...see you around the town.

On a recent JOe Doyies
trip south from Guest Columnist
Cincinnati, we
got off the high-
way at Lexing-
ton and traveled southwest on a back-
road, Highway 68. It is a beautiful dri-
ve and if you have time for a little
scenic diversion, I highly recommend
it. If you make the journey, be sure to
stop at Shakertown at Pleasant Hill to
better understand this unique 19th
century religious culture.
Our destination was Perryville, a
tiny village no larger than Lee. On Oc-
tober 8, 1862, Perryville was witness to
the largest battle during the Civil War
in the Commonwealth. At stake was
the issue of allegiance would Ken-
tucky stay with the Union or be pulled
into the Confederacy?
By mid-1861, the Confederacy was
limited to eleven breakaway states and
they were heavily disadvantaged by
the Union's population and industrial
capacity. There were four border
states Maryland, West Virginia, Ken-
tucky, and Missouri where there
were sufficient southern sympathizers
to warrant intrusion by the Confeder-
ates to see if local politics would help
increase the size and strength of the
South. The two greatest places of con-
tention were in Maryland and Ken-
tucky and at Antietam and Perryville,
the issue was decided the border
states would remain loyal to the
Union.
The first forays into the Common-,
wealth were with cavalry raiding par-
ties, small in nature, but by mid-1862,
two large Confederate forces entered
from Tennessee into central Kentucky
First came General Edmund Kirby-
Smith's smaller force followed by
Braxton Bragg's Army of Tennessee.
They were opposed by Carlos Don
Buell's Army of Ohio. One of the reg-
iments in the Buell's army was the
38th Ohio. My great-great grandfather
Dr. Israel Coons was the regimental
surgeon, thus my particular interest
in this battle.
Hardee's Corps moving from the
east slammed into Buell's army in the
early afternoon of October 8th. The
Confederates were badly outnumbered


but the unusual
terrain hin-
dered their re-
.- connaissance.
In all the battle-
fields I have
walked, I have
never seen ter-
f rain so hilly
and rolling as
Perryville. Lit-
erally, a company of men could be en-
gaged in a firefight and a hundred
yards away, the adjacent company
might not have any idea that a fight is
underway:
Many of the skirmishes took place
in creek beds where the troops fought
over water. Kentucky was coming off
a very hot, dry summer and the sol-
diers on both sides were parched.
They lived off the land, or in this case,
drank off the land.
The terrain helped the outnum-
bered Confederates to break the battle
into many small engagements where
they acquitted themselves quite well.
Despite being outnumbered nearly
four to one, the Confederates battled to
a technical a draw. Because they were
so far extended into enemy territory,
the cautious Bragg ordered a retreat,
not only from the battlefield but from
Kentucky as well. Never again over
the next thirty months of war would
the Commonwealth be seriously
threatened.
There was plenty of blood shed in
about ten hours of fighting at Per-
ryville; both sides shared equally in
about 7500 casualties. No doubt at the
conclusion of the battle, the work for
surgeons like Dr. Coons really began.
The little village of Perryville, about a
mile southeast of the battlefield, was
turned into a field hospital where the
wounded and sick were treated by pret-
ty crude methods. Any wounds to
arms or legs usually led to amputation
and the threat of infection was severe.
Because Bragg retreated so quickly,
many of the Rebel wounded were left
behind to be treated by Yankee doctors.
Perryville was not the greatest bat-
tle that my great-great grandfather's
regiment was engaged in less than
three months later, the same two
armies would meet at Murfreesboro,
Tennessee on the bank of Stones River
and wage a bloody two day battle over
the New Year. That will be in a future
trip as I follow the footsteps of my an-
cestor.

Why does Greene Publishing devote an entire page
to non-local crime? It only serves the baser interests of
the readers and conflicts with the paper's stated purpose:
"Your Best Source for Local News." The space could be
put to better use featuring stories of local good news, not
bad....
You know what really gets me...
Drivers who don't use a turn signal.
People who read out loud what they're typing in an
email or letter.
Kids who tease dogs through a fence.
People who drink directly out of the milk/orange
juice contained.
Parents who bring their young kids to R rated films.
People that don't use coasters.
People who blame anything but themselves for
THEIR failure.
People who sit next to you on public transportation
even when there are other seats available.
Women who wear jewelry that clinks and clacks
and makes noise when they're at their desk or keyboard.
When people take 20 napkins, use one, then throw
them all away
Going through the drive thru, then having to go
back when they screw your order up.
People walking around in ridiculous 'fashionable'
shoes that are clearly hurting their feet.
Whenever anyone says "Ya, know what I'm sayin"...
Using speaker phones in public areas at work.
Roadmaps that aren't folded correctly
Finding a shoe and not finding its mate next to it
Made up car names that are not even real words.
People who are mean to animals.
When a person makes a sucking noise with a straw
when the cup becomes almost empty
People with bad table manners.
People that snoop.
People who read the paper while driving.
People that interrupt you when you're telling a sto-
ry and then they continue to tell you their story and then
ask you in an uninterested tone to continue on with your
story when they are finished talking.
Drivers who won't turn right on red.
Vulgar talk at the dinner table.
People who chat online (instant messaging) while
I'm on the phone with them.
Not having enough quarters to do laundry.
When you genuinely ask someone what's wrong
(when there obviously is something wrong) and they re-
spond half-heartedly "hmmm? oh nothing..."
People who ignore yield signs.

Man Has Shoe Confiscated And Is
Arrested For Pot Possession
A Madison man was arrested for possession of
marijuana and one of his shoes was confiscated on
Thursday, Nov. 20.
According to a Madison Police Department report,
Patrolman David Myers conducted a traffic stop on a
green Chevrolet Caprice at the corner of Jordan and
Horry Streets. Upon making contact with the driver,
Brandon Bernard Haynes, 23, Myers smelled a strong
marijuana odor and observed several pieces of what
he knew to be marijuana on the suspect's shirt and
pants in plain view.
Haynes was arrested and Myers confiscated a shoe
where he had tried to conceal some of the illegal sub-
stance.

from the U.S. Fire Administration to
help maintain fire safety during the
holidays:
With the onset of the holiday
season, it is important to focus on
fire safety and prevention. The cele-
bration of the season brings with it
increased usage of electric lights,
decorations, candles, and the ever-
popular Christmas tree, all of which
can be potential fire hazards. Addi-
tionally, cooking fires increase dur-
ing the holidays as families and
friends gather to celebrate. By fol-
lowing general fire safety precau-
tions; potential holiday fires, deaths,
and injuries remain preventable.
Christmas Trees
What's a traditional Christmas
morning scene without a beautifully
decorated tree? If your household
includes a natural tree in its festivi-
ties, take to heart the sales person's
suggestion: "Keep the tree watered."
Christmas trees account for
hundreds of fires annually Typical-
ly, shorts in electrical lights or open
flames from candles, lighters or
matches start tree fires. Well-wa-
tered trees are not a problem. A dry
and neglected tree can be.
Selecting a Tree
for the Holidays
Needles on fresh trees should be
green and hard to pull back from the
branches. Needles should not break
if the tree has been freshly cut. The
trunk should be sticky to the touch.
Old trees can be identified by bounc-
ing the tree trunk on the ground. If
many needles fall off, the tree has


been cut too long, has probably
dried out, and is a fire hazard.
Caring for Your Tree
Do not place your tree close to a
heat source, including a fireplace or
heat vent. The heat will dry out the
tree, causing it to be more easily ig-
nited by heat, flame or sparks. Be
careful not to drop or flick cigarette
ashes near a tree. Do not put your
live tree up too early or leave it up
for longer than two weeks. Keep the
tree stand filled with water at all
times.
Disposing of Your Tree
Never put tree branches or nee-
dles in a fireplace or wood-burning
stove. When the tree becomes dry,
discard it promptly The best way to
dispose of your tree is by taking it to
a recycling center or having it
hauled away by a community pick-
up service.
Cooking
Thanksgiving Day fires in resi-
dential structures cause more prop-
erty damage and claim more lives
than residential structure fires on
other days. The increase is troubling'
as it applies mostly to cooking fires
in family homes. In 2005, cooking
fires were involved in roughly 1,300
reported home structure fires on
Thanksgiving. That's almost three
times the daily average.
It is easy to get wrapped up in
entertaining guests, but it is impor-
tant to monitor meal preparations.
Most cooking fires start when cook-
ing is left unattended.
Another of the recent culprits
for the increase
of cooking fires
during holidays
is the turkey fry-
er. Turkey fry-


ers use a substantial quantity of
cooking oil at high temperatures,
and many units currently available
for use pose a significant tipping
danger. The use of turkey fryers by
consumers can lead to devastating
burns, other injuries and the de-
struction of property.
The following safe cooking tips
can help keep your holiday dinner
safe and enjoyable:
Always use cooking equip-
ment tested and approved by a rec-
ognized testing facility
Stay in the kitchen when you
are frying, grilling or broiling food.
If you leave the kitchen, even for a
short time, turn off the stove.
Keep anything that can catch
fire (potholders, towels or curtains)
away from your stovetop.
Have a "kid-free zone" of at
least three feet around the stove
and areas where hot food or drink
is prepared or carried.
Wear short, close-fitting or
tightly rolled sleeves when cook-
ing. Loose clothing can dangle onto
stove burners and catch fire.
Never use a wet oven mitt, as
it presents a scald danger if the
moisture in the mitt is heated.
Always keep an oven mitt and
lid nearby when cooking. If a small
grease fire starts in a pan, put on
an oven mitt, turn off the burner,
smother the flames by carefully
sliding the lid over the pan.
Don't remove the lid until it is
completely cool.
If there is an oven fire, turn
off the heat and keep the door
closed to prevent flames from burn-
ing you and your clothing. Have the
oven serviced before you use it
again.

times of heavy traffic as people travel to spend time
with their families, so we urge everyone driving on our
highways during the holiday period to drive carefully,"
said Colonel John Czernis, director of the Florida
Highway Patrol. "Allow yourself plenty of time to
reach your destination safely, drive sober and buckle
up on each and every trip. The holidays are a time for
celebration, but we cannot forget safety behind the
wheel."
The Florida Highway Patrol reminds motorists of
Florida's Move Over Law. The law requires motorists
to move over when a patrol car, emergency vehicle or
tow truck/wrecker is stopped on the side of the road
with lights flashing. Motorists are required to change
lanes away from authorized emergency vehicles if
able to move over safely or slow down while maintain-
ing a safe speed. Violators of the Move Over law will be
issued a citation.
Motorists are encouraged to use their cellular tele-
phones safely FHP urges all drivers to call *FHP (*347)
to report suspected drunk or aggressive drivers. They
can also use this number if their vehicle breaks down
or they need assistance. Motorists needing immediate
emergency services should dial 911.
The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Ve-
hicles encourages anyone with a valid Florida driver
license or identification card to go online to
www.flhsmv.gov and enter their emergency contact in-

Invasive Plants


Are Not "Green"


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The move in the United
States toward "green" in-
dustries is no longer a fad.
In fact, from agriculture to
factories to clean water,
there are billions of dollars
going into new and im-
proved ways for everything
we do. The goal: to do the
things we do without devas-
tating the natural re-
sources that are so essen-
tial for future generations
to thrive.
One concern facing our
environment is invasive
plants. Although they may
be natural and green in col-
or, some plant species are
certainly not "green" in the
bigger picture.
Recognizing the impor-
tance of addressing this
threat locally, a green-con-
cerned citizen, this one be-
ing timber man Bubba
Greene of Madison Farm
Bureau, organized a meet-
ing with invasive plant spe-
cialist Andy Pierce of Red
River Specialties Inc. to dis-


cuss the issue.
Greene invited County
Coordinator Allen Cherry
and the staff of the Roads
and Bridge Department,
headed by Red Henderson,
to participate in the work-
shop as well. Jo Williams,
administrative office man-
ager for the department,
who was also in attendance
along with approximately
30 employees, captured the
usefulness of the meeting
in her thank you letter to
Greene; "...by knowing
how to identify problem
vegetation, our employees
can assist efforts to control
these invasive species."
Pierce brought a wealth
of information to the work-
shop. As a professional
working directly with erad-
ication efforts, he has seen
the devastating impact that
invasive exotic plants are
having in Madison County.
"Invasive exotic plants
are becoming a significant
issue across the South. We
in Florida are especially
susceptible to problems


with these plants because
of our warmer climate. In-
vasive exotic plants pose a
significant threat to crops
by overtaking existing crop
lands and reducing yields
on crop lands due to compe-
tition and the possible
quarantine (and therefore
inability to sell) of crops
due to the presence of inva-
sive exotic seed and bio-
mass present in them. The
invasive exotics also pose
serious threats to public
safety by overtaking road-
ways, climbing on and com-
promising power lines, re-
ducing the ability to main-
tain right-of-ways, and cov-
ering road signs," Pierce
explained.
Pierce also emphasized
that stopping the spread is
priority one and that it
starts with education,
which the workshop served
to initiate.
The road crews, for in-
stance, were introduced to
ideas regarding equipment
cleaning and alternatives
for roadway and right-of-
way maintenance pro-
grams where invasive
plants are present. In the
end, Pierce offered a simple
message and mission. "We
can treat the problem to-
morrow, but we have to stop
making it worse today."
Red River Specialties
Inc. is a distributor of her-
bicides for forestry, right of
way, aquatic and invasive
exotic plants. Pierce has
worked for Red River in
these fields for over 10
years and can be reached in
.Branford at (386) 935-4722.

Question: Help! My filling just fell out. How
long before my tooth is going to start hurting?

Answer: How long do you have before it hurts,
who knows? I can tell you this. It reminds me of
the story of the woman driving around on a bald
tire with three patches and asking the mechanic
"how much longer can I drive on that tire before
the tire will have a blowout?" Mechanic, "I don't
know when it is going to blowout, 'mam, but from
looking at the shape that tire is in I can tell you it's
gonna be a doozy."

The'truth is a lost filling is not a fun way to start a
day. I can give you good news, bad news. The
good news is that the filling coming out is giving
you a warning shot fired across your bow to let
you know something is wrong before it has
started to hurt. The bad news is that there is
something wrong which allowed the filling to
come out. Maybe there is decay which has
loosened an older filling and it is passed time to
have it replaced. Maybe the tooth is cracked and
can not hold the old filling. It could be a number
of causes so count your blessings that the tooth
hasn't started to ache. The tooth could have just
begun to hurt without that warning. Don't wait for
your tooth to have a "blow out." Get the tooth
looked at as soon as possible.

Renting a costly message-plas-

um is out, and creativity is definitely
in, when it comes to marriage pro-
posals-and not just because some
couples aren't sports fans.
Let's face it, everyone is thinking
about the economy With the average
wedding in 2007 costing more than
$28,000-up nearly 20 percent from
1990-many couples are getting back

ding process, and focusing on more
meaningtfl ways to celebrate their
love.
Take the case of one groom-to-

swers for a novel way to propose to
his fiancee of two years.
The "best answer," as chosen by
Brian: replacing the normal back-

manager and waiting for callbacks to help book your
event space and guest room block are over.
No waiting for a guarantee on a function room,
no waiting to reserve a block of rooms, and no wait-
ing to find out who in your wedding party and other
special guests have reserved their hotel rooms as the
big day approaches.
Today wedding planning can take place 24 hours
a day, seven days a week. With resources available on-
line at your fingertips, including accessing-wedding
checklists, reserving hotel event space and guest
rooms, managing your own out-of-town hotel guest
list and, yes, designing your own personalized Web
page for guest reservations, all on one site, you can
take control of your own planning, creatively and in-
stantaneously, in most cases.
Companies such as the Hilton Family of Hotels,
with their 24/7 event-planning sites, have put wed-
ding planning back into your control by taking it all
online. Visit the "Prepare it with Hilton" area of
w i IV

to view a wedding checklist tool, be able to reserve
your reception and rehearsal party space utilizing
the space calculator feature, select food and beverage
preferences, reserve five to 25 guest rooms (whereby
your guests can use their own credit card to reserve
their room), and add your own personal flair by de-
signing your own personalized Web page, adorned
with photos of you and your significant other, for a
heartwarming touch.
Make sure you check out room square footage
and room configurations of your selected hotel or re-
sort to ensure that the function room for your re-
hearsal and reception are just right for your guest ca-
pacity. With today's sophisticated hotel Web pages,
this can be done completely online without delay or
time-consuming personal site visits.
When designing your personalized Web page, the
first page out-of town guests see when reserving their
guest room to attend your wedding, sophisticated ho-
tel sites enable you to add schedules and special notes
pertaining to rehearsals, cocktail parties, parking,
and pre-event and post-wedding gatherings. For ex-
ample, after booking on Hilton's wedding site, you
can create a special, customized Web page for your
event. By using online features such as the guest list
manager, where you can download and print your
guest list, you'll know if Aunt Sally has reserved her
room yet. saving you hours of follow-up phone calls
after invitations have been mailed.
So. plan away and take control of your wedding
planning while adding your own personal touch.
Take advantage of online hotel tools to alleviate the
stress of event planning and out-of-town guest ac-
commodations.
There's no reason you should not enjoy planning
your big day.

Plunge In Stocks, Oil


And Gold Leave Experts Confused

WGreene Publishing, Inc. rels a day for the next month.
When stock markets plummeted the Currency values swung wildly as we


week of Oct. 20-24, oil prices also plunged to
heir lowest levels in more than a year. Fol-
lowing that, gold, the traditional safe haven
in times of panic, fell sharply.
The result: a growing fear that govern-
ments, central banks and finance ministers
worldwide seem powerless to stop the deep-
ening of a global recession that will quickly
slam corporate earnings and lead to deep job
losses around the world unless changes are
made quickly and successfully.
Before the open of New York trading last
Friday, Dow futures, which is an educated
guess on the direction of the market, had
,dropped 550 points, triggering a temporary
trading halt in stock futures contracts in an
effort to slow the decline. If the Dow drops
1,100 points before 2 p.m., the New York Stock
Exchange would be forced to use "circuit
breakers" that could lead to temporarily
shutting the market, something it hasn't
done since 1997.
Under New York Stock Exchange circuit
breakers, if the Dow drops 2,200 before 1
p.m., trading will be halted for two hours. If
the threshold is breached between 2 p.m. and
2:30 p.m., the halt will last 30 minutes. Trad-
ing will continue to take place if stocks
plummet 1,100 points after 2:30 p.m. If the in-
dex falls 2,200 points before 1 p.m., the mar-
ket will close for two hours. If the decline
takes place between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m., there
will be a one-hour pause. The market will
close for the day if stocks sink 2,200 points af-
ter 2 p.m. If there is a 3,350-point decline, the
market would close for the day, regardless of
the time.
"This is beyond volatile; it is chaotic,"
Carl Weinberg, chief economist at High Fre-
quency Economics, wrote in a note to clients.

And gold fell as low as $681 an ounce, its low-
est since January of last year.
It was already a black Friday overseas.
Japan's Nikkei stock average dropped 9.6
percent. Germany's DAX index plunged as
much as 10.8 percent, France's CAC40 slid 10
percent and Britain's FTSE 100 shed 8.7 per-
cent.
"We are getting used to wild swings in
the markets, but today's moves verge on the
bizarre," said Julian Jessop, chief interna-
tional economist at Capital Economics.
The only good news in the market was
the 5.5 percent increase in September exist-
ing home sales. Median home prices, howev-
er, dropped to $191,600, down nine percent
from a year ago.
Investors around the world, seemingly,
have become more convinced the global
economy is on the brink of a long and
painful recession, if it's not already in one.
Over the past few weeks, governments have
taken unprecedented steps to thaw frozen
credit markets and avert the downturn. But
while there are signs that credit markets are
beginning to thaw, as rates banks charge
each other for short-term loans have been
falling in recent days, the outlook from com-
panies reporting earnings are almost uni-
versally cautious about their prospects go-
ing forward.
That means companies will be reluctant
to buy new equipment or hire new workers.
U.S. unemployment claims, already well
into recession territory, are rising even
faster than expected. On Thursday, the gov-
ernment said new applications- for unem-
ployment insurance rose 15,000 last week to
a seasonally adjusted 478,000, above analyst-
s' estimates of 470,000. Jobless claims above
400,000 are considered a sign of recession.
Goldman Sachs, Chrysler and Xerox all
announced they were cutting workers by


the thousands, adding to the woes of
an economy beset by tighter credit
and wobbly banks. PNC Financial
Services said it is acquiring National
City bank for $5.8 billion and will re-
ceive $7.7 billion in capital from the
federal government as part of its $700
billion financial rescue plan.
Even the White House, in unusu-
ally sharp language, acknowledged
the economy is going through what
spokeswoman Dana Perino called a
"rough ride."
"We expect our GDP (gross do-
mestic product) number next week
not to be a good one and the next quar-
ter to be tough as well," Perino said.
The Commerce Department will
release its first estimate of third-
quarter economic performance Oct.
* 30, and Wall Street analysts project it
will show the economy contracted by
0.5 percent, according to Thom-
son/IFR. Many economists expect the
decline to continue into the current
quarter and the first three months of
2009, if not longer. The classic defini-
tion of a recession is at least two con-
secutive quarters of negative growth.
Former Federal Reserve Chair-
man Alan Greenspan, testifying be-
fore a House committee, said he could
not see "how we can avoid a signifi-
cant rise in layoffs and unemploy-
ment." This apparently universal
gloomy outlook certainly feeds sell00
ing, giving reason to anticipate fur-
ther declines unless a strong positive
hits the market.

Time for Annual 401(k) Review?

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones


Once you've started contributing to your
401(k) plan and funded it with investments thatare
appropriate for your needs, you might think you're
in good shape and that your 40T(k) is now on
"autopilot." But that type of thinking can actually
be counterproductive, because to get the maxi-
mum benefits from your 401(k), you'll need to
revise it over time to reflect changes in your life
and in the investments that make up your plan.
That's why it's a smart move to review your 401 (k)
holdings annually and when this year is winding
down is as good a time as any to see what you've
got, where you've been and where you might be
headed.


What should you look for when you review
your 401(k)? First and foremost, make sure you're
saving enough to help reach your retirement goals
- or that you're at least putting away as much as
you can possibly afford. Next, evaluate whether
your investment mix is still suitable for your individ-
ual goals, risk tolerance and time horizon. You
might be surprised at how much your holdings can
"evolve" without your having done anything to
them. For example, during long bull markets, the
value of your 401 (k)'s stock-based accounts may
have risen substantially, and you might find that
these accounts now make up a greater percent-
age of your portfolio than you had originally
intended. As a result, you're now taking on more
risk than you'd like. Conversely, during a bear mar-
ket, the percentage of conservative investments in
your plan such as bonds and other fixed-
income vehicles may grow to such an extent,
relative to your stocks, thatyour 401(k) may not be
providing you with the growth opportunities you
need to pay for the retirement you ve envisioned'.
To prevent either of these scenarios, you may
need to periodically "rebalance" your 401(k).


I


As you review and rebalance your 401(k) over
time, become familiar with the rules governing
your plan. Your 401(k) might allow you to reallo-
cate your investment dollars as often as you like,
but if you change investments too frequently, you
could be charged redemption fees. If you rack up
a bunch of these fees, you may well end up lower-
ing your overall rate of return.
So, review your 401(k) at least once a year
and make changes whenever necessary but
don't go overboard. By making the right moves at
the right time, you can help ensure that your
401(k) will be a key element of your retirement
savings.

Your life's circumstances provide you with
another reason to review your 401 (k)'s investment
mix. When you begin your career, you may decide
to invest more aggressively in your 401(k)
because you have many years to go until you
retire. Consequently, you have time to potentially
overcome the "down" markets that will inevitably
occur. But as you get closer to retirement, you
obviously have fewer years to make up for lost
ground, so you might decide to lower your risk
level by shifting some of your assets out of stock-
based accounts into more conservative ones. Still,
you could be retired for two or three decades, so
you will still need some growth elements in your
401(k) to help stay ahead of inflation.

v^L w^ /I


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A lot has changed over the years since the first-
Thanksgiving meal, where bread was broken in thanks
and everyone gathered at the table to appease their
hunger and to give prayer for that which was provided.
The meal that was set before the pilgrims, however, is
not the meal that most think of today when the words
"Happy Thanksgiving" are uttered. Just for nutritional
fun, these are two basic menus to compare when decid-
ing what to prepare for that feast with family and
friends. Bon app6tit!

A typical Thanksgiving dinner prepared today:
A golden roasted turkey
Giblet gravy
Mashed potatoes
Sliced ham
Green bean casserole
Cornbread
Cranberry sauce


Sweet potato casserole
Homemade dinner rolls
Corn on the cob
Fruit salad
Pumpkin pie
Pecan pie
Apple pie
What the pilgrims ate:
Mussels (no horseradish or Tabasco)
Oysters (only on the half shell)
Eel (???)
Whitefish (they were fairly easy to catch)
Lobster (but where's the butter?!?)
Spinach (every young diner's dream)
Collards (okay, now we're talking)
Deer (because anytime's a good time for venison!)
Onions (most pilgrims slept alone)
Dried beans (crunchy!)
Parsnips (and most think they are for decoration only)
Grapes (for Thanksgiving?)
Nuts (because every holiday needs a few nuts)


Turnips (yum!)
Dried blueberries (not quite in pie form)

For in 1621, even though turkeys were eaten, there is
no mention of them in historical records of that first
dinner. Likewise, neither pumpkin nor pecan pie were
on the menu as the pilgrims had nothing with which to
make piecrusts or anything in which to bake the pies.
As for apples, they did not start growing naturally in the
United States until years later. And the cranberry sauce
can be forgotten as there was no sugar to add.
And as an added bonus, most meats back then were
cooked not only with the heads and feet still attached,
but the "humbles" (all that icky stuff inside) were
cooked and eaten as well.
So when sitting down to that beautiful bounty called
a Thanksgiving feast today, remember what was on the
plate in days of yore. One might just find something
new to be thankful for.

COWBOYS ADVANCE TO ROUND TWO


*, -* .* :-... ... :.- ... .
Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Michael Curtis, November 21, 2008
The Dave Galbraith Football League follows Billy Tolar and the Cowboys onto the field to show their support on the Cowboy "Road to the Repeat."


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
This reporter had the honor of at-
tending the University of Alabama during
the closing years of Coach Paul "Bear"
Bryant. A humble champion maker with
the most lifetime wins at the time of his
retirement, Bryant was quick to give, but
very slow to receive, the praise of others.
Coaches at this level of winning are rare,
and a selfless head coach is even more
rare.
This reporter has the pleasure of writ-
ing that the Madison County Cowboys
soundly defeated the Marianna Bulldogs
35-0 Friday night at Boot Hill and now ride
into Round 2 of the "Road to the Repeat."
This reporter also has the pleasure of
reporting that, along with this victory,
Head Coach Frankie Carroll has not only
the honor of playoff and regular season
records on par with coaching greats like
Bryant, but he has also achieved this suc-
cess in the same team-first style that


makes boys into men and programs into
legends.
Carroll has strongly praised his
coaching staff all season, just as he cele-
brates the success and importance of each
and every Cowboy player, many of whom
have been part of a 23-0 winning streak
that dates back to early last season.
Offensive Coordinator Michael Coe
truly has his offensive machine in high
gear right, and Defensive Coordinator Rod
Williams continues to use movement and
explosion to torment all opponents, in-
cluding the Bulldogs.
Quarterback Kelvin Singletary took
snaps and rushed for an opening touch-
down, using his speed as a fourth rushing
threat behind Corey Akins, Chris Thomp-
son and Xavier Brown. Akins really made
the Bulldogs sit and roll over with 142
rushing yards and three, scores, while
Thompson added another touchdown on
95 yards, and Brown racked up 66 yards in
support.


Rushing wasn't the only action on the
ground though, as ghosts of the Madison
versus Marianna rivalry haunted Boot
Hill. Tempers raised the near-freezing
temperatures to boiling more than once as
playoff fever took control. In fact, person-
al fouls for both late hits and unsports-
manlike conduct were thrown before the
last whistle blew.
But nothing made as powerful a state-
ment for the respect shown by the Bull-
dogs as their repeated choice to pull punt-
ing stunts and quick kicks on third down
in order to avoid the Cowboy return
threat. Frankly, at times, it looked as
though Marianna was working harder to
avoid a big loss than they were looking to
create a big win.
Next week, the Cowboys play Pensaco-
la Catholic in Pensacola as playoff fever
increases. All fans that are available to
travel with the team are urged to do so.
(Please see the direction box placed with
this article.) The Boys from Boot Hill are


representing Madison County as 2A State
Champions, and they realize just how
much it means to have the champion fans
of Madison County with them.

AROUND MADISON COUNTY



COWBOY GIVE ON AND OrF THE FIELD


By Michael Curtis
Greene rl'li.,iiL' Inc.
The Madison County High School Cowboys have proven
themselves on the field this season again and again. Unde-
feated and in Round 2 of the playoffs, the boys from Boot Hill
remain dedicated to the task of athletic and academic excel-
lence. They also remain dedicated to making a better Madi-
son County, as was evidenced by a recent visit to the Madison
County Senior Center where five players took a few moments
to deliver some timely and very appreciated canned goods.
Located on Rutledge Street just west of downtown Madi-
son, the Senior Center is under the direction of Rosa
Richardson, who is busy making provisions for the upcom-
ing move to the new facility that is g6ing up on Harvey
Greene Drive. The Center provides free and low-cost assis-
tance, including meals, to hundreds of seniors around Madi-
son County They stand alone in the way they offer life-fulfill-
ing activities and camaraderie, both of which are essential
for quality of life and good health in seniors.
Five players represented the Cowboys: J.J. Combass,
Ethan Pickles, Bryant Tuten, Scott Pleasant and Chad
Mitchell. Delivering hundreds of can goods ranging from
soup to vegetables, the players were excellent ambassadors
for both school and team.
."These boys deserve all the credit. They're fine young
men and a great bunch of players. We can't say enough about
their commitment on and off the field," Head Coach Frankie
Carroll noted while complementing their activities. "We
want all the folks of Madison County, from the kids to the el-
derly, and especially those being helped by the Senior Center,
to know how much we appreciate them and the community"
