The price far a first-class mail stamp will in-
crease two cents to 44 cents, starting May 11.
The Postal Service said the price increase was
necessary because of rising production costs. Un-
der law, the price of stamps is not allowed to rise
faster than the U.S. consumer price index, which
measures inflation.
According to a written release, the increase
will cost the typical family about $3 a year.
"Whether you're a consumer or run a busi-
ness, the Postal Service continues to offer a good
deal during a time when we're all looking for ways
to save," said spokesman Stephen M. Kearney.
Until the new prices go into effect, customers
can buy "Forever Stamps" at the current 42-cent
rate. "The Forever Stamp is always honored for a
1-ounce letter with no need for additional
postage."

Bike Florida 2009 has rolled into Madison, with
cyclists arriving last weekend for the ride that be-
gins "in beautiful and historic' Madison and travel-
ing through Monticello and Wakulla and then back
through both cities to end on April 4," organizers de-
scribed.
Cyclists received the VIP treatment from the
moment they arrived, beginning with a welcome-to-
Madison downtown block party Monday evening.
March 30 ending with Lee Day on Saturday, April 4
before they head home, which includes destinations
all over the United States.
Over 400 cyclists were treated to another very
special little taste of Madison, as three precious
young ladies set up a lemonade stand downtown to
greet and refresh passing riders, all of whom were
visibly impressed with the gesture. A full wrap-up
will be included in next week's paper. .

Pandering With
The Publisher

lary Ellen Greene
Columnist
--- ^ B^.11111,. |1|||


Happy

April Fool's Day !!!!
There are several probable origins given for April
Fool's Day (which always falls on April 1st of each year.)'
Some ascribe it to a memorable transaction between Ro-
mans and Sabines mentioned by Dionysins. The Romans,
about the time of the infancy of the city, wanting wives,
and finding they could not obtain the neighboring women
by their peaceable addresses, resolved to nrake use of a
stratagem, and, accordingly Romans instituted certain
games to be performed in the beginning of April (accord-
ing to the Roman calendar) in honor of Neptune.
Hearing of these festivities, all the families in the
neighborhood poured into Rome to view the proceedings;
With them came, as a matter of course, their marriageable
daughters, and these being filled with admiration at the
skill exhibited by the men, were easily persuaded into
marrying the heroes, and many matches were arranged by
this means.
Others, again, place the origin of the term "Fool's
Day" to a relic of some old heathen Celtic festival. It is an
exceedingly ancient custom that can be proven by the
records kept of April fool-making at the beginning of the
eighteenth century, and it appears to have been universal
throughout Europe. It is generally supposed to have come
both to England and Germany from France, where one
who is made an April Fool is called Un Poisson d'Avril, "an
Aprilfish." In Scotland, the term used is Gowk, being from
the Scottish word for "Cuckoo;" signifying "a foolish per-
son."


Judgment Day


Judgment Day it
will happen, one day, for
each and every one of
us.
The question. each
one of us needs to ask
ourselves is, "What will
be written in OUR Book
of Life, when it is
opened, on Judgment
Day?"
A few months ago
we ran a special story
called "A Teenager's
View of Heaven." We
ran it in both our Madi-
son County and Jeffer-
son County newspapers.
The response I heard
was overwhelming. The
impact that one story
can make is amazing.
When I started writ-
ing this column -I
thought of that story,
once again. It says so
much more than what I
could possibly try to
write myself, so I'm us-,
ing this column space to
rerun it again.
A TEENAGER'S
VIEW OF HEAVEN
17-year-old Brian
Moore had only a short
time to write something
for a class. The subject
was what Heaven was
like, "I wowed 'em," he
later told his father;


S' Bruce. "It's a killer It's
I know that I must have been one of the humans God Brue. It's .e t

tion, had very different
headings. As I drew near
the wall of files,. the first
to catch my. attention was
one that read "Girls I,
have liked." I opened it
and began flipping
through the cards. I
quickly shut it, shocked
to realize that I recog-
nized the names written
on each one.
And then without be-
ing told, I knew exactly
where I was. This lifeless
room with its small files
was a crude catalog sys-
temfor my life. Here were
written the actions of my :
every moment, big and
small, in a ,detail my
memory couldn't match.
A sense of wonder and
curiosity, coupled with
horror, stirred within me
as I began randomly
opening files and explor-
ing their content.
Some. brought joy
and sweet memories; oth-
ers a sense of shame and
regret so intense that I
would look 'over my.
shoulder to see if anyone
was watching.
A file named
"Friends" was next to one
marked "Friends I. have
betrayed." The titles
.ranged from the .mun-.
dane to the outright.
weird "Books I Have
Read, "Lies I have told,"
"Comfort I have given,"
"Jokes I have laughed
at." Some were almost hi-
larious in their exact-
f ess: "Things.I've yelled
at my brothers." Others I
couldn't laugh at:
"Things I Have Done in
My Anger" "Things I
Have Muttered under My
Breath at My Parents" I
never ceased to be sur-
prised by the contents. i
Often there were
many nrore cards than I
expected. Sometimes few-,
er than I hoped. I was
overwhelmed by the sheer
volume of the life I had
lived. Could it be possi-
ble that I had the time in
my years to fill each of
these thousands or even
millions of cards? But
each card confirmed this
truth. Each was written
in my own handwriting:
Each signed with my sig-
nature.
When Ipulled out the
file marked "TV Shows I

have watched" I realized
the files grew to contain
their contents. The cards
were packed tightly and
yet after two or three
yards, I hadn't found the
end of the file. I shut it,
shamed, not so much by
the quality of shows but
more by the vast time I
knew that file represent-'
ed.
When I came to a file
marked "Lustful
Thoughts," Ifelt a chill
run through my body. I
pulled thefile out only an
inch, not willing to test
its size and drew out a
card. I shuddered at its
detailed content.
I felt sick to think
that such a moment had
been recorded. An almost
animal rage broke on me.
One thought dominated
my mind: No one must
ever see' these cards! No
one must ever see this
room!: I have to' destroy
them!" In insane frenzy I
yanked the file out. Its
size didn't matter now. I
had to empty it and burn
the cards. But as I took it
at one end and began
pounding it on the floor, I
Scquld. ,t dislodgei a .sin- .
gle card. I became des-
perate ,andLpled_.,out .a..
card, only to find it as
strong as steel when I
tried to tear it.
Defeated and utterly
helpless, I returned the
file to its slot. Leaning
'my forehead against the
- wall, I let out a long, self-
pitying sigh.
And then I saw it.
The title bore "PPeople I
Have Shared the Gospel
with." The handle was
brighter than those
around it, newer, almost
unused. I pulled on its
handle and a small box
not more than three inch-
es, long fell into my
hands. I, couldcount the
cards it contained on one
hand.
And then the tears/
came. I began to weep,
sobs so .deep that they
hurt. They started in my
stomach and shook
through me. I fell on my
knees and cried. I cried
out of shame, from the
overwhelming shame of
it all. The rows of. file
shelves swirled in 'my
tear-filled eyes.. No one

must ever, ever, know of
this room. I must lock it
up and hide the key. But
then as I pushed away
the tears, Isaw Him.
No, please not Him.
Not here. Oh, anyone but
Jesus. I watched help=_
lessly as He began to
open the files and read -
the cards. I couldn't bear
to watch His response.
And in the moments I
could bring myself to
look at His face, I saw a
sorrow deeper than my
own. He seemed to intu-
itively go to the worst
boxes. Why did He have
to read every one?
Finally He turned
.and looked at me from
across the room. He
looked at me with pity in
His eyes. But this was a
pity that didn't anger
me. I dropped my hecd,
covered-my face with rhy
hands and began to cry
again. He 'walked ovbr
and put His arm around
me. He could have said
so many things. But He
didn't say a word. He
just cried with me.
Then He got up ahd
walked back to the wall
of files. Starting at one
end of the room, He tobk
out afile and, one by ofre,
began to sign His name
over mine on each card.
"No!" I shouted rushing
to Him. All I could firid
to say was "No, no, "as I
pulled the card from
Him. His name shouldn't
be on these cards. But
.there it was, written in
red so rich, so dark, and
so alive. The name of Je-
sus covered mine. It was
written with His, blood.
He gently took the card
back. He smiled a sad
'smile and' began to sign
the cards. I don't~ thiik
_'ll ever, understand how
He did it so quickly, but
'the next ,instant it
seemed I heard Him close
the last file and walk
back to my side.
He placed His hand
on my shoulder and
said, "It is finished." I
stood up, and He led me
out of the room. There
was no lock on its door
There were. still cards to
be written.

As we go through
life, EVERYTHING we
do is written in our
book of life. We shouldd
always be aware of our
actions, and if they are
pleasing to God, .for
NOTHING goes unno-
ticed by Him.
One of the most pro-
found things I heard,
.one time, was, "When
you stand before God on
Judgment Day. He will
not ask you how others
treated you He will ask
you how you treated
others."
Until then....I'll see
you around the town!

Stall


When I was a young
aviator, one of my early
mentors described flying
this way: "The F-4 flies'
like any plane ever built.
When you pull back on .
the stick, the nose goes
up; if you keep pulling
on the stick, the nose
goes down."
It is called a stall and
is the bane of anyone
who has ever piloted an
aircraft. The recent air-
craft crashes in Buffalo
and Montana were.obvi-
ously stalls, compounded
by icing on the wing; In
the "miracle on the Hud-
son" in January, pilot
Sully Sullenberger kept
his powerless Airbus fly-
ing just above stall'speed
as he 'glided to a watery
landing, saving the lives
of 155 passengers and
crew.
A stall occurs when
the lift-providing airflow
over the top of the wing
separates and becomes
unstable. Since lift is no
longer provided, gravity
becomes the predomi-
nate force on the aircraft,
the plane stops flying and
the nose inevitably falls.
This can be life-saving
providing that the pilot
recognizes the condition
* quickly and has enough
altitude to fly the air-
plane out of the stall con-
dition. Unfortunately,
many stalls occur when
the aircraft is slowing
down preparing to land.
As was the case in both of
the recent crashes, there
was insufficient altitude
to correct the stall condi-
tion before impact.-
An important part of
initial and recurring pi-
lot training is practicing
"stalls and falls" so that
the pilot can quickly rec-
ognize the condition and
initiate fast and positive
recovery procedures. An
important part of this
training is to not overcor-
rect the condition and
make matters worse.
Speaking of relative
wind over the wing, re-
member that popular
song by Bette Middler,
"Wind Beneath my
Wings?" That always
bothered me because it
isn't wind beneath the
wing but rather, wind
over the wing that cre-


ates lift and causes an
airfoil to fly. I guess Bette
doesn't .know much
about aerodynamics.
Stall speeds differ for
each aircraft for a variety
of flight conditions in-
cluding altitude, weight,'
fuel on board, and center
of gravity. If ice accumu-
lates, this will also affect
stall: speed by adding
weight and changing 'the
shape of the wing. Both
of these factors will in-
crease stall speed.
Pilots frequently'talk
about angle-of-attack or
AOA, the angle between
the flight path of the air-.
craft and the pitch of the
wing. If the aircraft is
"on speed" during the
landing phase, the
boundary airflow will
not separate from the top
of the wing and the air-
craft will not stall. But if
the pilot allows the air-
craft to get slow in this
critical landing phase, an
accident is the likely re-
sult.
The shape of a wing
is determined by the de-
signer, but as I said, ice
will alter the shape of the
design. Jet aircraft use
engine bleed air to deice
the wing, a very quick
and effective system.
Turboprop aircraft don't
have the luxury of such a
system so they must de-
pend on inflatable rubber
boots to dislodge the ice.
This system takes longer
to work which means the
pilot must recognize the
danger sooner and take
corrective action. While
ice can occur anytime, it
is more likely to occur
during winter flying.
Weather conditions
can be a factor .when it
comes to stalling an air-
craft. Windsheers and
microbursts can fool a pi-
lot into overcorrecting to
a false indication and
stalling the aircraft in a
critical flight regime.

into thunderstorms
where these conditions
can occur. When your
airline flight is cancelled
or diverted because" of
poor weather, you should
thank your lucky stars
that someone is watch-
ing out for flight safety
and taking a conserva-
tive approach. Inconve-
nience beats a smoking,
hole anytime. .
Here is a rare condi-
tion that you are unlike-
ly to encounter, but I did
once. I was on the acci-
dent investigation board
for a crash of an aircraft
with a variable geome-
,try wing: every time the
wing is swept forward or
aft, the aerodynamic
center of the wing
changes. If the center-
of-gravity is aft of the
aerodynamic center,
then the aircraft is tail-
heavy and out-of-bal-
ance. The way to correct
this situation is to move
fuel to redistribute
weight. When this acci-,
dent occurred, the wings
had been swept forward
but the fuel wasn't trans-
.ferred, so the aircraft
was tail-heavy.
The flight computer
flew the aircraft down to
138 knots, correcting for
the out-of- balance until
a windgust started the
nose to rise. The nose
climbed 70 degrees
above the horizon before
slicing to the right; 3500'
feet later, the'aircraft im-
pacted the desert floor
and a fireball erupted.
Not a pretty sight.
There is an 'old say-
ing that has been around
since Orville and Wilbur
first took flight more
than a century ago: "Fly-
ing is inherently safe but
terribly unforgiving."
Nothing is more im-
portant to an aviator
than understanding and
respecting stall speed.'
Failure to do so often has
fatal consequences.

LOCAL & REGIONAL CRIME BLOTTER


Mike Register
cont from Page 1A


Mike's education continued on out-
side the classroom as well as inside. In-
side the classroom there was the usual
text education, but outside the walls
where children grow and learn to extend
their boundaries is where Mike learned
the basic values of life. Mike enjoyed his
youth in Lee riding around in the back of
a pick up truck with Roy, Charlie, and
Wilmarie Dickey He remembers days of
baseball in an empty lot with old friends
and he remembers Sunday afternoon
picnics at Blue Springs. He remembers
the innocence and the joys of small town
life and the respect it taught him for God
and country He remembers a time when
"Yes Ma'am" and "No Sir" were first
hand language and a man's handshake
was his word. It was these values that
caused Mike to settle for a careerin law
enforcement as a Madison Police Officer.
Mike also served as a Madison County
Sheriff Deputy and finally retired from
the Department of Agricultural Law En-
forcement at the age of 54. Feeling too
young for retirement and loving his com-
munity, Mike sought employment with
the Town of Lee as Public Works Direc-
tor. From giving a face lift to the railroad
tracks to being instrumental in creating
our many parks around the town Mike's
pride in his community soon began to
show through in his work. As Mike's
abilities began to show on the outside; so '
too did his ability on the inside with
many hours dedicated to the online pro-

Lee Dav


duction of the city water system.
Putting his self to his studies, Mike re-
ceived his class-D water operators' li-
cense becoming the city's first hire with
such a certification. His diligence to this
new task held him to the computer cre-
ating an online system that is second to
none in the state. At any point an opera-
tor can go on line and find the system
data needed to make sure that the city
water system is operating at its highest
quality possible. This task earned Mike
the nomination arid subsequent title of
Florida Rural Water Operator of the
year 2005.
At the age of 62, Mike has now fully
retired but remains available.to help in
the future growth of the Town of Lee.
Mike's retirement now consist of lazy
days on the river fishing or a much need-
ed ride down the road on his new Harley
Davidson. Mike is a recent inductee to
the Madison County Chapter of The
Blue Knights, an International Law En-
forcement Motorcycle Association. He
also enjoys, his days kicking around the
property with his grandsons and is look-
ing forward to the grandchildren to
come. Mike hopes to instill in them the
same hometown- values that he received
as a child and has past on to his own chil-'
dren. When asked if there was anywhere
else he would wish to live Mike's re-
,,sponge was simply this "Lee is like no
other and it will always be my home.It is
who I am."

Woman Arrested For Shoplifting


A Madison woman was arrested
for shoplifting from a local store
last Monday, March 23.
According to a Madison Police
Department report, while on foot
.patrol in Madison Square, Patrol-
man Daniel McLeod and Sgt. Chris
Cooks conducted a walk-through of
Beall's Outlet. During the walk-
through, the store manager advised
McLeod that three females were
watching the staff in the store and
acting suspicious.
The manager said that one of

Celebration. Parents will be pleased as Well, not just
with the quality of the rides, but also with the
company's stellar safety history and safety
certifications.
Tickets may be purchased for one ride, or an
economical day-bracelet may be purchased at a dis-
count for only $15, giving the kid including those
50-year-old kids out there unlimited riding
throughout the day. There is one ride for the teens
that includes a "snap-back" bungee harness where

able before being sprung back to the start. There
will be plenty of fun for the tots too, as there are
several inflatable rides where parents may accom-
pany the child.
Vouchers for the discounted bracelet may be
purchased at Lee City Hall, located on County Road
255 just north of US 90 in Lee. Organizers thank all
'in advance, and, again, urge everyone to call (850)

the females had an orange purse,
which she put in front of her while
looking at clothing.
As Cooks and McLeod contin-
ued the walkthrough, the three fe-
males walked out of the store.
The officers followed the women
out the door and McLeod confronted
Lashonda Solomon, who began tak-
ing items out of the purse for which
she had not paid.
Solomon was arrested and
transported to the Madison County
Jail.

Those'jwho remember The.
Suwannee River Jamboree, or
those who simply like learning
about this area's past history, can
imagine .turning their radio dial
back to the 1950s and.early 1960s
and setting it on WNER out of Live
Oak.
Every Saturday evening, from'
1952-1962, WNER broadcast:The:
Suwannee River Jamboree, a
Grand Ole Opry-type entertain-
ment extravaganza.
Betty Ann Ellison, a Lee resi-
dent and a regular on the show, re-
called how it started and how she
became known as "Bertha Lou," a


comedic character on the show.
"Norm Protsman owned
WNER: Clair Parker was a radio
announcer and writer. Clair did
everything at the station to begin
with," Ellison said. "He had a ra-
dio showed called Western Airs.
He was very popular. A .man
named Aubrey Fowler had an idea
of having a country music show, so
he, Norm and Clair developed the
idea."
At thetime, there were two dif-
ferent country bands, the Suwan-
nee River Playboys and the Melody.
.Rangers, playing around Suwan-
nee County Other local perform-
ers on the program included the
Norris Sisters from White Springs,

By Bryant Thigpen ,
Greehe Publishing, Inc.
On March 21, Roberta McDonald turned 50 years
old. Her party was held on Friday, March 20, at the
Lee City Hall Pavilion. Family and friends -drove to
Lee from as far as Rhode Island and Virginia to be
present at the party.


Mary Brunner, Roberta's mother, prepared a big
meal consisting of Italian foods, such as lasagna,
baked ziti, alfredo and garlic bread and much more.
McDonald's husband, Chuck, provided the enter-
tainment, using his guitar and singing favorite songs
of the crowd. McDonald requested not to receive
presents, just to be with her family and friends.


Chuck and Roberta moved here in 1992 after he
retired from the Navy, so Roberta could be with her
family
The party was a huge success.
Congratulations to Roberta on reaching this
milestone, and the Staff at Greene Publishing, Inc.
wishes you many more.


Kids Are The Future

"If you're concerned about teenagers in Madison County, please join us."


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
"It doesn't take much more than
looking around the neighborhood to
sed that teenagers in Madison County
aren't getting where they need to be.
Poor achievement and a lack of 'over-
all progress is visible, both in acade-
mic and character development. But
other problems loom, even greater.
For instance, teenage pregnancy
is an outrageous problem did you
know that .over 60 percent of all kids
borti in the county last year were
born tb unwed mothers? (162 out of
288 births) I And' what about the
dfbpout rate? Half of all our students
/ fall out and simply get left behind, no
Smatter the devotion of teachers.
'There are causes, of course, and
one,-of the least discussed among
these 'causes 'is underage drinking.


People throughout the community
talk about the problems at the
schools, and they often argue about
the responsibility of parents.
What about other kids? What
about the peers that make teenage
drinking and drugs so appealing?
That's a battle of peer pressure, and
that fight can't be .won alone, and
everybody knows it.
That's where the Madison Alco-
hol and Other Drug Prevention Coali-
tion comes into play. We know kids
are gathering everywhere, under
trees and out in fields, and they are
consuming lots of alcohol. They've
been seen at house parties after foot-
ball games and there are too many
stories of teenage girls who uninten-
tionally-let drinking lead to sex that
later leads to unplanned pregnancies.
Overworked single moms struggle to


keep the family going. All this is far
too familiar in settings of genera-
tional poverty. There is a strategy to
combat it, however.
The Madison County Alcohol and
Other Drug Prevention Coalition is-
made up of volunteers from schools
and healthcare, churches and law en-
forcement, government and con-
cerned citizens, all prepared to
support this strategy to bring about
real change, but they need your help
to make it work, and they need it now.
Over the next few weeks, re-
quests will be going out to the Cen-
tral School, and High School
community, asking for suggestions
and personal experiences. Teens and
their parents are being invited to con-
tact the coalition and participate in
brief community surveys and candid
discussions to determine the very


best plan for each section of the com-
munity.
On April 16th, at the new coali-
tion conference center located at 316
SW Pinckney, this process begins and
all with an interest are invited to
drop by with their teen at 6 p.m. to
take part in the discussion, and to ex-
change ideas regarding underage
drinking and its consequences in
Madison County Teens and parents
will be broken into separate groups
to allow comfort and privacy
Snacks and drinks will be provid-
ed, as well as door prizes, including
some great gift cards. For more infor-
mation and to register-in Madison i

PBTs as proud mascots of neutrality and bravery
)t to disappoint, the most decorated war dog of
at time was none other than 'Stubby', a loyal and
ave defender of Ameriia's freedom.
The Pit Bull was also a favorite dog among
liticians, scholars, and celebrities. Helen Keller,
leodore Roosevelt, and the "Our Gang" Little
iscals all had APBTS. Many reading this inay

pt a favorite Pit Bull as a pet. Today, this tradi-

The soft side of the breed shows up in their.

any pit bulls work as Certified Therapy Dogs in
aspitals and nursing homes. Homes with children

MADISON POLITICIANS


By Alfa Hunt
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Throughout Madison County's history, there
have been several renowned politicians who were ei-
ther born here or lived within county lines some-
time during their life. A few of these men have
already been discussed, such as John C. McGehee,
Madison Livingston, and Richard J. Mays. The
politicians who were born in Madison County were
J.B. Parramore, born in 1839, and Edward Swann
born in 1862. The politicians who lived in Madison
County were W.J. Hines, D.G. Livingston, Richard J.
Mays, John C. McGehee, B,F Wardlaw, Lena Bird,
E.. Alexander, W.T. Davis, Bill Grant, and William
McChesney.
James B. Parramore, also known as J.B. Par-.
ramore or "Buck," was born in Madison, County
January 29, 1839. He served as the Mayor of Orlan-
do, from 1896-1902. Unfortunately, he died while in
office of unknown causes. His burial location is un-
known.
SEdward Swann was born near Madison, March
10, 1862. He graduated from the law department of
Columbia College, now Columbia University, New
York City in 1886. That same year, he was admitted
to the bar:and began practicing law in New York
City. '.
He was elected as a Democrat to the 57th Con-
gress to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Amos
J. Cummings. He served in Congress from Nov. 4,
1902 to March 3, 1903. After serving with Congress,
heresumed law practice in New York City and was
elected judge of the court of general sessions, New .
S -York City.
He served from Jan. 1, 1908, until he retired in
1916, after which he became the district attorney for
New York County 1916-1922. He eventually retired
from all public and political activities, relocating
back to his home state. He died in Sewalls Point,
Jensen Beach, Sept. 9,1945. He was buried in the St.
Peters Episcopal Cemetery in Fernandina.:
SIt is regretful to say that the other politicians
are not as well documented as some of the others
who were previously discussed in this, or former ar-
ticles. The following paragraphs are practically sta-
tistics of the men and women's accomplishments
which: warranted them,a place in history. All of
these people lived in Madison County during one'
point in their lifetime. '
SW.J. Hines relocated to Madison County shortly
after the county was separated from Jefferson Coun-
ty,. and served as a Delegate to the.Florida State. Con-
stitutional Convention from Madison County in
S1865. He was one of the early members of
the first Masonic Lodge in the county, which re-
ceived its charter Jan. 16, 1845. The early members'
best known activity was establishing the St. John's
Seminary of Learning.


The same can be said for D.G. Livingston. Not
much was recorded about his time in office. He
served as another delegate to the Florida State Con-
stitutional Convention from Madison County in
1865. Livingston inherited the home of Madison Liv-
ingston, founder of the county. The home is one the
oldest homes within the county lines.
Benjamin Wardlaw served as a delegate to the
Democratic National Convention from Florida in
1860. He hired William Hammerly to build a home

for his family after the completion of the home of
John C. McGehee. It it known as the Wardlaw-Smith
Mansion anid is currently in the possession of the
North Florida Community College.
Lena Bird lived in Greenville of Madison Coun-
ty and was one of.the first females.to serve as a deL-.
iegate to the Democratic National Convention form
Florida in 1928; 1940, and 1948. Her burial location is
unknown.
E.T. Alexander lived in the City of Madison and
served as a delegate to the Republican National Con-
vention from Florida in 1880. His burial location is


unknown.

For years, American students

,compared to students in

erng.it has little perceived

currently dealing with multiple
high visibility issues, including
the survival of the automobile in-
dustry, the restructuring of


Timothy Franz Geithner
banks, financial institutions and
insurance companies, as well as
the recovery of the mortgage
markets.,
The Secretary's appointment
was controversial. At the Senate
confirmation hearings, it was re-
vealed that Geithner had not paid
$35,000 in self-employment taxes
for several years, although no
criminal violations had occurred.


Of course, as the top incoming fi-
nancial official, the situation was
magnified. In the end, he was ob-
viously confirmed.
Geithner has the au-
thority to decide what to
do with the second
tranche a term used for
"chunks" of an overall
financial issue of $350
billion from the $700 bil-
lion banking bailout bill
passed by Congress in
October 2008. And
though he isn't required
to obtain Congressional
approval, he went to
Congress on February
10-11 to explain his
plans.
Plans on the books-
include creation of one
or more "bad banks" to
buy and hold toxic as-
sets, using a mix of tax-
payer and private money
Geithner also proposes
to expand a lending pro-
gram that would spend
as much as $1 trillion to
cover the decline in the
issuance of securities
backed by consumer loans. He
further proposes to give banks
new infusions of capital with
which to lend. In exchange, banks
would have to cut the salaries and
perks of their executives and
sharply limit dividends and cor-
porate acquisitions.

1Is It A Dead Cat


Bounce Or Rebound?


PBy Michael Curtis: -
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A "Dead Cat Bounce" is a term used by traders
'in the finance industry to describe a pattern where
Sa spectacular decline in the price of a stock is im-
mediately followed by a moderate and temporary -
rise before continuing its decline. In other words,
the rise in the stock
*price was not an indica-
'tion of improved funda-
imehtals. in the stock.
ffistead, it is referring'to
ihe. notion that "even a
Dead cat will bounce if it '
falls from a great
height." ,
The reasons for.such
la bounce can be techni-
cal, as investors may
have standing orders to .
!buy shorted stocks -a trading technique that profits
from falling stock prices -if they fall below a certain
'ldvel or to cover certain stock options positions in-
viestment instruments that are tied to the price of a
I stock. Once those limits are reached, the buy orders
,are activated, often by computer, and the sudden
Rise in demand causes the price of thestock to rise
|as well.
The bounce may also be the result of specula-
ition. Traders buy into what they hope is the bottom
iof the market, expecting a bounce and.thereby reap-
ing a quick profit. Thus, the very act of anticipating
:a bounce can create and magnify it.
I A market rise after a sharp fall can only really
ibe seen to be a "dead cat bounce" with the benefit of
hindsight. If the stock starts to fall again in the fol-
lowing days and.weeks, then it was a true dead cat
bounce. If the market starts to climb again after the



Business owners can elect to expense the cost of J
buying equipment rather than depreciating the cost
over the life of the asset. On your 2008 tax return, *
your business can expense up to $250,000 for new

first short bounce, then the continued rise in price
action would be considered a trend reversal and not
a dead cat bounce. Since this distinction only be-
comes obvious in hindsight, the evaluation may
vary depending upon where traders think they are
in the big picture. Of course, the bounce could be
seen as part of the overall market or regarding only
a particular stock.
When Federal Re-
serve Chairman Ben
SBernanke took office in
S 2006, having previously
been chairman of Pres-
ident, George Bush's
Council of Economic
/ Advisors, he recog-
"a nized economic chal-
/ lenges already on the
table, although they
seem small compared
to those that have been added since. Several week-
ends ago, Bernanke appeared on primetimetelevi-
sion, the first such interview since the Fed was
founded. During that interview, he stated that the
prospects of a full-blown depression had been avert-
ed, and that he believed the worse part of the cur-
rent recession will be over by yearend.
So, is it a dead cat pounce or the beginning of
the rebound? The answer will be known shortly

Summer
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A combination of big oil supplies and drivers
putting fewer miles on their cars will probably keep
gasoline prices low through the summer. An average
of experts are saying gasoline prices could even
drop to $1.75 a gallon by April.
With recession-minded Americans expected to
scale back vacation plans and the nation over-sup-
plied with gasoline, refiners are preparing for weak-
er business in the spring and summer months,
dimming hopes of a seasonal boost. The outlook
comes as broader economic forces are causing many
oil and gas companies to cut spending and jobs/.
It may also reflect the impact of long-term, fuel-
saving changes U.S. drivers have made in response
to higher energy costs in recent years. Consumers,
however, could benefit in the short term. The poor
business climate may keep gasoline prices from ris-
ing as much as they typically do heading into the
spring and summer months.
Whether lower-than-normal prices will con-
vince Americans to pump more gasoline is another
matter. A recent government report showed Ameri-
cans drove 3.8 billion fewer vehicle miles at the end
of 2008, a decline of 1.6 percent from a year ago, ex-
tending a trend of declining driving into its second
year.

How to Invest During a
Recession
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones.

We are now finishing the 16th month of the reces-
sion, which began in,December 2007, according to the
National Bureau of Economic Research. Not only is this a
long recession, but it's also a severe one, marked by
painfully high levels of job losses, a sharply reduced cred-
it flow and a dropin the value of many investments. Still,
despite alltthe bad--news. there-are valid reaon9s-lo
believe that brighter days lie ahead. But you'dd0ir'VW
wait for things to turn around before taking steps to help
your own financial future.
Here are some actions to consider:
Don't cut back on your 401(k). During difficult eco-
nomic times, it's hard for many people to assume-their
jobs are safe. But if you are fairly confident your employ-
ment situation is secure, continue investing in your 401:(k)
or other employer-sponsored retirement plan. The tax
advantages of these types of plans not to mention the
employer's match, if one is offered- make them ideal
savings vehicles for retirement. Of course, your plan prob-
ably has taken a hit over the past year, but that's the case
for many investments. If you've chosen a good mix of
investments, your plan should recover at some point.
Diversify, diversify, diversify. Generally speaking,
it's not a good idea to tie up more than 5 percent of your
portfolio in a single investment. Spread your investment
dollars among a wide range of stocks, bonds, certificates
of deposit and other securities. For a rough idea on how
well you've 'diversified, ask yourself: "If the value of a few
of my stocks and bonds declined and didn't recover,
would it be extremely painful for me financially?" If the
answer is "yes," you probably need more diversification.
Of course, diversification by itself cannot guarantee a
profit'or protect against loss, but it can give you more
chances for success and reduce the effects of volatility on
your portfolio.
Think long term. Your investments may have lost 30
percent to 40 percent of their value from October 2007 to
the present which may seem like a long time. Yet qual-
ity investments often need much longer periods to show
significant growth. So while it can be painful to endure
short-term losses, you need to develop the discipline to
hold your investments for many years.
Don't reach for high yields. When the stock market
is down, many investors turn to bonds that offer high
yields, reasoning that bonds are always safer than stocks.
Don't be fooled into this line of thinking; high-yield bonds
mean high-risk bonds. If the issuer defaults, you could
lose your principal. Stick with investment-grade bonds.
Look for opportunities. Instead of avoiding the
financial markets, look for good investment opportunities.
Because investment prices have fallen so much, your dol-
lars can now buy more shares. Historically, buying shares
at lower prices has often led to higher returns over the
long term. If you're receiving dividends, now is in espe-
cially good time to reinvest them.

You probably can't avoid all the negative effects of
the recession. But by following the above suggestions,
you can help avoid getting thrown off track on your jour-
ney toward your financial goals.
