Underage Drinking

Meeting Scheduled

S "It doesn't take much more than looking around
Madison County to see that many teenagers aren't
getting to where they need to be. Poor achievement
and bad habits are very visible, but:other
problems loom even greater.
For instance, teenage :' -
pregnancy is an outra-,
geous problem did you
know that over 60 percent of:. -
all children born in the coun-
ty last year were born to un-
wed mothers? And what about the dropout rate? Half
of all our students fall out and simply get left be-
hind, no matter the devotion of teachers, family or

There are causes, and one of them doesn't get
the attention it needs for the level of the problem.

Madison County.


Dear Editor:
.Please let your readers know of the abuse both
physical and sexual that the State Of Florida has ig-
nored for almost a hundred years. Terrible abuses
against children as young as 9 years of age.
SAs I write this mail, there is an active investiga-
tion on going by USDJ, FDLE and DJJ which has at-
tracted nation attention. CNN, ABC and some local
media have alreadyseen some of the stories of horror.
'There is a 10,000 word story appearing in the St. Pe-
tersburg Times due out April 19th. We ask you to let all
of Florida know what is possible and what could one
day happen to their own child should they one day be
sent toan institution in this state; one of the worse be-
ing The Author G. Dozier School in Marianna. Serious.
crimes are allowed to occur when the state does not po-
lice their own.
As a survivor; after 50 years I stilll havescars on
my body from a flogging by three employees of the
Dozier School. I was only 15 years old, shaking, cold
and scared; I was taken oufof bed in the middle of the
night and taken to a building -called THE WHITE-
HOUSE. When I was' returned to my cottage I had a
broken foot, lost 4 front teeth and had received 135 lash-
es with a leather strap with metal insert sewn between
layers. My underwear had been embedded into my
rear and legs. I was beaten because they said I knew
about a boy that had runaway but I knew of, nothing
about such things.
My story is only one.of many on our website,
which I'm sending to you. Please be advised that some
stories here are graphic including sexual brutal ac-
counts and even murder. (BE SURE TO READ THE
ARTICLE WROTE BY THE ORLANDO SENTINEL
APRIL 7TH).
For almost twenty years, Roger Dean Kiser along
with Dick Colon and Bryant Middleton has worked to
stop these awful and horrible acts against Florida's
children. Many of we men are getting up in age and
some have already passed, carrying with them some
horrible memories. Many have suffered a life-time of
problems due to the acts committed by many former
employees of FSB Marianna. Memories of abuses to
young children which have lasted a lifetime and we
will take to our graves.
S WE WERE C-ILDREN! Young boys who were
beaten, raped and some murdered then cast out into
the woods as if we were nothing more than unless:
trash. Some did not survive that horrible place.
Society might look at this in a different light had
we been criminals. Most of us were at that facility and
our only crime was running away from home.
There were children sent to the school because
their parents no longer wanted them;'many were or-
phans and wards of the state.
One might say "Why 50 years later do we come to
you?" Well. no one would believe that such atrocities.
could possible occur in the United States of America.
National media attention has finally done that for us
and brought survivors together once again. This situ-
ation has been called the worst case of CHILD ABUSE
in the history of the United States and classified as AN
AMERICAN TRAGEDY by a top news reporter.
We only ask for you to maybe print maybe a small
article, with our website information so the general
public will know what could happen'to their children
if Florida State Institutionsarenot closely monitored,
at all times.
We truly thank you from our hearts for your con-
cern in this matter.

Another Reason To Make A Memory
I love holidays! It makes me feel like a kid
again. .
Infact, I love anything that makes me feel
like a kid' again. I love theme parks (ride as
many rides as my children do), I love riding
in the car listening to loud music, and I love
Vacations and enjoy seeing the new places As
thru a child's/teenager's eyes.
Most holidays are "built" around chil-
dren. I love the 4th of July,; and get more ek-
cited .over the big pretty fireworks than n y
own children do; I love celebrating Chritt-
mas,.and yes, Santa Claus still comes to visit
my children; I love buying Valentine's Day
candy and gifts for my children, family mem-,
bers, and friends; I love Halloween, and dress
up each year to go treat-or-treating with my
children; and Easter is no exception either.
This past weekend found the Easter holi-
day upon us, and yes, the Easter Bunny still
comes to my house, too. Easter baskets, can-
dy, and new movies were set up for Cheltsie
and Brooke. I have taught that Easter Bunny
to wipe his feet, however. He used to leave
bunny tracks- (flour) all through my house.
I've gotten tired of cleaning up behind him,
so for the last few years he has wiped his feet
before coming in.
We attended the Central Baptist Church,
in Aucilla, for Easter services and then head-
ed back home'to Madison. We broke out the
egg dye, and colored eggs which is still fin
fo 'the' girls,' whether they will adi ifd it in
public or not. They had a blast. Gator col-
ored eggs, FSU colored eggs, bright colored
eggs .pastel colored eggs, and crayon draw-
ings on the eggs,, before dying, filled our af-
ternoon.
S However, when I offered to hide the eggs
for them to hunt, they seemed to shy back
and said that I didn't need to do that. So I did-
n't, for about an hour, until I realized I want-
ed to hide the eggs. Hiding and hunting eggs
is the most fun part, after all. So, I went out-
side, unknowing to them, and hid all the eggs'
and came back in and told them.
Funny thing was they got their baskets
and RAN all around that yard looking for the
eggs. It was just like they were five years old
again, running, giggling and laughing. They
found all but one. Sad thing was I couldn't
find it either. Brings back the old saying of "I
could even hide my own Easter eggs."
,Young is, as young does. Old is, as old
does. It's so much more fun acting like a kid
,than acting like an adult. My children oftep
make fun of me for always wanting to go do
things that they feel I should have "out-
grown." But that's what makes life. funi. Add
that's what makes memories.
This year's Easter celebration was no e -
ception -lots of fun, and lots of memories.
Go make you a memory!!!
Until then.'...I'll see'you around the towi!

This weekend,
Madison will cele-.
brate the Four Free-
doms Festival, named
for the monument
which graces our cen-
tral park. Because of
this connection, this
spring festival is
unique to our commu-
nity The monument,
commissioned by
President Roosevelt
arid dedicated 65 years
ago, recognizes the
sacrifice made by Cap-
tain Colin P. Kelly, Jr.
in the opening days of
America's entry into
World War II. It is
named for the speech
that FDR delivered as
S'his 1941 State of the
Union address, 11
months before the at-
tack on Pearl Harbor
and Kelly's supreme
sacrifice.
Roosevelt's speech,
delivered to Congress,
on January 6, 1941, is
one of the best-remem-
bered addresses of his
remarkable 12 year
presidency, In essence,
it was a call-to-arms.
Although America was
not yet engaged in the
war which was raging
in China and Europe,
SFDR was laying the
groundwork for Amer-
ica's intervention. Sig-
nificantly, the speech
is non-partisan.
The speech, which
lasted about .three-
quarters of an -hour,
begins by describing
the current threat to
America's security
which he describes as
unprecedented in our
nation's history Don't
forget that at the time
this speech was deliv-
ered, the Nazis occu-
pied all of Central
Europe, the Italians
were invested in North
Africa, and the Japan-
ese had invaded East-
ern China. The only
serious threat to Hitler
came from Britain
and they were out of
cash to purchase
armaments from
America. Roo-
sevelt says that
our national
security policy
is based on
self-defense,
democratic
ideals, and
honoring com-
mitments to our
allies.
The next part
of the speech de-
scribes the state of
defense production,
and the need for Con-
gress to raise funds
to support national
security At this
stage, America was
transforming from a

time economy to pro-

the way to becoming
the "Arsenal of Democ-
racy"

r


I


As the speech
winds to a close, Presi-
dent Roosevelt illus-
trates the strengths of
a democratic govern-
ment. 'Finally, he de-
scribes a future world
founded on four free-
doms; this forms. the
signature of a speech
that would hereafter
be known as "The Four
Freedoms." Two of
these freedoms are
freedom of: speech and
Worship. The second
two are freedoms from:
want and fear.
The first two free-
doms come directly
from the first amend-
ment to the Constitu-
tion. Certainly,
freedom of speech is
essential to democracy.
Without the right to
speak and dissent, gov-
ernment of the people
is impossible. Free-
dom of worship is
more contentious than
speech; in present day
context, the so-called
wall of separation be-
tween church and state
is frequently used as
an excuse to deny the
opportunity for people
of faith to practice
their worship. But to
Franklin Roosevelt, it
was and is an essential
American freedom.
The two freedoms
from are also con-
tentious. Freedom
from want which, in
Roosevelt's language,
meant new "economic


understandings" is of-
ten used as an excuse
to take from one set of
people to give to anoth-
er. That power fre-
quently leads to
abuses, particularly by
politicians who inter-
pret Roosevelt's ideal
as political under-
standings with! eco-
nomic consequences.;
Freedom from fepa
which meant "world-
wide reduction of ar-
maments," has not
appreciably happened
in the'six decades
since FDR's prediction
and ignores the role
that weapons have as a
deterrent against war.
Today we are more
aware than in Roo-
sevelt's day of the lim-
itations we face in
achieving these two
freedoms.
The Roosevelt ide-
al is summed in the
ending: "Since the be-
ginnings of our Amer-
ican history, we have
been engaged in
change in a perpetu-
al peaceful 'revolution
... The nation has
placed its destiny in
the hands and heads
and hearts of its mil-'
lions of free men and
women; and its faith
in freedom under the
guidance of God.
Freedom means the
supremacy of human
rights everywhere.
Our support goes to
those who struggle to
gain those rights or
keep them; Our
strength is our unity
of purpose."
This weekend as
Swe. celebrate spring-
Stime in Madison, let's
not lose sight of our
signature motto, the
Four Freedoms.
Today, we face sig-
nificant challenges
both at home and
abroad, but 68 years
ago, the Greatest Gen-
eration faced far
greater threats to se-
curity and prosperity.
FDR's speech reminds
us of those times and
challenges. The Great-
est Generation tri-
umphed, and we are
the beneficiary of
their sacrifice and suc-
cess. We will triumph
too provided we do not
lose sight of our free-
doms and jealously
guard liberty

The pressure from teens on other teens is se-
vere, and alcohol is no exception. That's a battle of
peer pressure, and that is a fight that can't be won
alone, and everybody knows that, too.
,That's where the Madison Alcohol and Other
Drug Prevention Coalition' comes into play They
know kids are gathering everywhere: under trees
and in fields, at house parties after football games,
or on the weekend just for fun.
There are too many stories of teenage girls who
un intentionally let drinking lead to sex that leads to
unplanned .pregnancies, while other 'overworked
single moms and grandmothers struggle to keep the
family together. All this is far too familiar and made
; ':.al the worse by genera-
tional poverty There is a
strategy to combat it,

By Michael Curtis

Megan Jackson is an achiever, period. As last
year's Salutatorian for Madison County High
School, she demonstrated her academic commit-
ment. Similarly, as a volleyball standout she demon-
strated her athletic accomplishments, including her
participation in the North Florida Volleyball Acade-
my under Rita Buck-Crockett where she was noticed
by several recruiters.

The auctioned arrangements and door prizes awarded at the Garden Club Meeting were economical to
produce, but rich in substance. Pictured left to right are Rosie Leggett, Dolly Ballard, Wendy Webb, Rosalyn
Jenkins and Ashley Garbutt.


Garden Club Blooms Decorative Ideas


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
From the moment Dolly
Ballard opened the monthly
meeting of the Madison Gar-
den Glub on April 2, every re-
port and idea seemed to bloom
with exceptional fragrance. In
fact,,every portion of the club
recently, from stellar maember-
ship growth to awesome deco-
rating ideas have marked the
last year, giving the entire
group a much-deserved feeling
of accomplishment.
One of the first pieces of
news that garnered great
praise was the announcement
that the club had added 22 new
menibers over the last year, ex-
ceeding all other clubs in the
district by more than double.
Ballard was also extremely
excited to announce that Mina
Bloodworth was named the in-
coming district director. Even
Mina's great niece, Ashley
Garbutt, who. was visiting the,
luncheon, got in on the act,
winning two of the great door
prizes awarded to those in at-
tendance.
Birthdays were bountiful
for the month. Peggy Rykard
(4th). Rosie Leggett (5th), Dol-
ly Ballard (13th), Annette Key
(16th). Dorothy Peacock (19th),
Joy Wells (25th), and Frances
Copeland (26th) each received
a big "Happy Birthday!" from
the group,, followed-by lots of
hugs.,
"Each year the Garden Club
makes a float for the Four
Freedoms Festival parade,


scheduled this year for April
18. The club's theme for this
event is "Proud to be an Amer-
ican," and will include two en-
tries, including a 1929 Ford.
The club is also wrapping up
the planning for the Quilt and
Flower Show set for April 16,
17 and 18. Everyone was invit-
ed to come to the club on April
15 at 10 a.m. to provide flora
and greenery for. arrange-
ments.
Other news included the
announcement of Yard of the
Month, which went to Eddie.
Bevis, and the beautification
efforts in the alley that runs
beside the firehouse toward
city hall in Madison. The
group also expressed their
support for the upcoming pro-
duction of "Lady Pirates of
the Caribbean," showing April
16, 18 and 19 at North Florida'
Community College. Per-
formed by the Sentinel Up-
Sstage Players, the production
is part -of 'the -Dinner Theatre
for Scholarships program.
The annual Flower Show is
back again, scheduled for May,
7 from 1 to 4 p.m. and is open to
the public at no charge. Those
who would like to be included
in the lunch starting at 11:30
a.m., however, are warmly in-
vited to'contact Mina Blood-
worth at (850) 973-9363 by May
1 to make reservations. The
cost of the luncheon is only
$7.50. There is, of course, no
charge for the excellent chat
that comes along with it.
Following'reports and ac-


knowledgements, thanks went
out to Dianne Sullivan and the
lunch committee for the tasty
and healthy meal.
The program for the after-
noon was instruction for mak-
ing contrived flowers and
arrangements. Presenters
noted that this category in-
cludes a vast array of possi-
bilities, with each having the
common element of being
made from plant material.
Mina Bloodworth conducted
the program with Sara
Adams, explaining that' con-
trived arrangements qualify
for garden contest entries be-
cause of the their natural
content.
A variety of examples and
techniques were illustrated,
including sunflowers and hi-
biscus. Several completed
arrangements were then auc-
tioned to raise funds, with one
piece going for $70. The group
seemed gepiinely suFpri. ,l'o.
learn how much these'types'of
arrangements sell for comnmrr-
cially, and all agreed they were
absolutely fantastic decorat-
ing ideas.
'Membership into the Madi-
son Garden Club is easy.,Sim-
ply have an interest in the
many sides of gardening and a
love for good fellowship. -The
club has maintained a rich tra-
dition on Madison since 1950,'
and from the looks of it, will be
doing so for decades to come.

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison Coun-

The Cowboys took a
3-0 lead at the end of the
first inning.
The score remained


the same until the fourth
inning, when Madison
powered in two more
runs, making the score
5-0.
Godby fought back
in the sixth inning, nar-
rowing the Cowboys'
lead to 5-3.
When the Cowboys
went to the plate in the
sixth inning, they tacked
on two more runs, mak-


ing the score 7-3.
The Cougars failed
to score in the top of the
seventh and Madison

In 1989, the Tallahassee Ronald McDonald
House opened its doors. Today, the Ronald Mc-
Donald House of Tallahassee is "home away from
home"' for the families of pediatric patients being
treated at area hospitals and medical facilities.
The majority of families who stay at the
house live more than 10 miles away and have chil-
dren being treated at regional hospitals or other
clinics. Each year, thousands of children and
their families depend on the support of the
Ronald McDonald House to provide comfort and
care during difficult time.

Lee Day Remembers 100 Tears


By-Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The annual celebration of Lee Day was another
gr4at success this year thanks to all the volunteers
and visitors who made it happen. Of course, re-
membering the 100th birthday of the "Little but
Proud" town made it all the more enjoyable, from
thd opening parade to the incredible fireworks dis-
pla~ over Lake Brittany
IUnder Chair Tammy Webb, the Lee Day Com-
mittee had been planning the event for over six
months, but last year's Citizen of the Year certainly
wouldn't take credit for the success. Instead, true to
forkn, the humble Webb gave immense praise, to:
Thelma Thomiipson, for her outstanding
furadraising; Ernestine Kinsey for her town leader-
ship and history book; Cheryl Archambault :and
Jarice Miller for always being their to fill the gaps
and keep the town, affairs in order; Mark Branham
for'organizing the vendors and,assembling the his-
tory book; Joe and Linda Boyles for all their hard
work oni the Art and Essay Contest; Pat Mess and
Gil; McCarthy for their' Lee Day dedication and a
host of others, including this. reporter,/who wit-
nessed the commitment in motion. The list of con-
tributors is long, each closing the day with an
incredible sense of shared pride. ,
Lee Day continues to be held on the ball field.,
ani grounds adjacent to City Halland Fire Station
located on NE County Road 255, where two.stages -
a nain stage arid the pavilion featured a variety of
go pel, country and folk music, with one additional
musical treat to commemorate the centennial cele-
bration. The U.S. Marine Corps Band graced the pa-
rade and stage with'an array of patriotic tunes that

tivated young and old alike.
Rivaling the entertainment were the delicious
. offering, including classics like Boston Butt
Philly Cheese Steak to festive favorites like fun-
cakes and snow cones. Dozens of options were
lately enjoyed. The Lee VFD, among others,
i very pleased and grateful to announce they sold
by afternoon.
The children were especially excited this year
ake part in the first inflatable carnival to come to
Day., Although inflatable slides and bounce
houses have been available previously, this
year there were a dozen varieties that kept
kids, teens and more than a few adults enter-
tained for hours thanks to Michael Cofield
and the great gang from Air Depot. Huge extra
kudos went out to the local teen volunteers
that assisted him, without whom the: rides
would not have been possible. Adding to the
excitement were a number of Lee-Day' kid's
games sponsored by Denny's Restaurant, and
the Lee Day Committee kid's game that gave
away two Xbox 360 and two Nintendo DS game
systems.
The list of sponsors and donations was
also long, each garnering praise from organ-
izers regardless of the size or popularity of
the gesture. In the end, all agreed that it was
only through their combined effort that such
a day could be realized.

Asked, "Why break into the music
scene.now, in the second half of your
lives? And why in Madison County?"
.Cicinella responded, "It's all about tim-
ing." Cucinella met Winter in Madison
'two years ago, and played a fight song he
wrote for a nearby university. Winter's
reaction? "I

WWII Hero:



Colin P. Kelly,


By Alfa Hunt
Greene Publishing, Inc.
One of the more recognized and well-known Madison
County citizens to have ever lived was Capt. Colin P. Kelly,
L Jr.


The Four Freedoms Monument (below) wa
missioned by President Franklin D. Roosevelt
ing his articulation of the "Four Freedoms"
1941 State of the Union Address.The statue w
ated by sculptor Walter Russell later that ye;
SWas dedicated in 1943 before a crowd of 60,0(
pie at Madison Square Garden in New York
'as dedicated to Colin P. Kelly, the first reco
American hero of World War II. On June 14, 19
monument was re-dedicated in Madison,,
hometown, with a speech by Governor Spessa
land. The monument sits in Four Freedoms Pi


The Four Freedoms Monument located in Madison
was commissioned by president Franklin D"Roosevelt
following his emphasis of the "Four Freedoms" in his
1941 State of the Union Address. The monument creat-
ed by sculptor Walter Russell later in the year and
was dedicated to Capt. Kelly in 1943 at Madison
Square Garden.in New York City in front of 60,000
people. On June 14, 1944, the statue was re-dedi-
cated in Madison with a speech presented by
Florida Governor Spessard Holland.
SKelly had come from a cultured.
Christian, and patriotic family. His
great-grandfather Kelly
.j, had arrived to
the Ameri-
can colonies
as an im-
becam migrant
from Scot-
land in 1770.
.4 The family set-
... tied in South Car-
olina where they
became highly respect-
ed. Three of Kelly's sons
served in the confederate
army during the War Between
the States and one of them, Lt.
James Kelly received distinguished ser-
vice for assisting in the sinking of a Federal
warship off Fort Fisher. Lt. Kelly's musket is still a
treasured family heirloom.
Colin Kelly,.Jr. was born in Monticello at the
home of his maternal grandfather Mays on July 11,
1915. His family lived in Madison and he began at-
tending the public schools. Kelly took an early in-
terest in airplanes from hearing the accounts of
his father and the older children. Kelly had a reve-
Slation one day when he saw a plane flying over
Madison toward Miami. It was then he longed to
become a pilot. His enthusiasm for flying spread.
He began collecting newspaper, and magazine
pi trits of planes as well as asking-his parents.
to read him stories regarding them. Later he
was able to read the stories himself, but his
s corn-, enthusiasm continued when he began con-
follow- string miniature models in the manual
in his training shop at school.
SKelly's enthusiasm for military aviation
as cre- soon took root when he began attending the
ar, and United States Military: Academy at West
)0 peo- Point, NY. Kelly was known for his gpod-na-
City. It tured tolerance. He was bantered because of
gnized his distinct Southern drawl and soft pronun-
)44, the ciation: of R's. When his, friends discovered
Kelly's he had formed the habit of singing his three
rd Hol- names in full, they teased him calling him
rk. "C.P.", but even that wouldn't ruffle his feath-
ers:.
CColin was a member of the boxing team,
the track team, and was an fervent supporter


of the football squad. He was the advertising manager of The
SHoWitzer, a student publication. -He sang in the Cadet Choir,
won a medal for his pistol marksmanship, and his dramatic
talents caught the attention of the Cadet Players, according
to Chelsea C: Fraser in her book, Famous American Flyers,
With his wide range of activities and extra studies, Kel-
ly had applied himself moderately to his books. When he
graduated from West Point in June of 1937, his grades were
not as high as they might have been. Regardless, he attained
a Bachelor of Arts degree and received a commission as sec-
ond lieutenant of infantry
At a dance, he met a blue-eyed beauty named Marion
Wick of Lowell, MA. According to his friends, it was a case
of love at first sight for them both. The summer he graduat-
,- ed, the couple was married at Cadet Chapel under the arched
,' swords of six of his officer-classmates.
' t After a short stay in his hometown with his new bride,
': the newly-weds relocated to Randolph Field, TX, where Kel-
ly had been assigned to learn flying under Air porps super-
vision. After a yearlong primary instruction, he was
W- transferred to nearby Kelly Field for advanced training. He
graduated fiom Kelly Field's bombardment course in 1939
with the rating of pilot and a commission as first lieutenant,
eventually being promoted to captain. During this time, Kel-
P, ly and his wife Marion had a son, Colin "Corky" Kelly II.
in 1941, it was evident that the diplomatic relations be-
: tween the United States and Japan were becoming strained
('and war might be declared at almost any time. The frontier
fi'tighting units had to be ready to jump into the Pacific fray at
if-, the first explosion. Steadily negotiations between the U.S.
Sand Japan grew more critical.
On Sept. 5. 1941, the 32nd Bombing Squadron's comman-
der, Major Emmet O'Donnell, received order from Washing-
ton, D:C. He ordered his men to prepare for immediate
departure.
Kelly had no idea where he was going and was forced to
bid his wife and young son goodbye. It would be the last time
either of them saw him alive. ,
The squadron was stationed in the Phililpines. Though
no hostility had broke out, it was desired to keep the
squadron's departure from Hawaii a secret.
To avoid detection, the American bombers took an un-
chartered round-about course to avoid possible Japanese pa-
trols. The Precaution carried them deep in the South Pacific,
then northward to their destination which they reached af-
ter seven days. It is recorded as being the longest bomber
flight in history
..Capt. Kelly's squadron established itself at Clark Field,
S, ust north of Manila. There they resumed practice flights
and constantly glanced through the papers for the latest war

news. The Japanese Islands were about 2,000 miles north-
ward and Japanese forces were already occupying Formosa.
The American forces knew that in the event of a sudden as-
sault. it would be difficult to receive reinforcements from
Britain or America.
Without warning, on Dec. 7, a Japanese aircraft.ap-
peared over Hawaii and bombed Pearl Harbor. Word reached
the Philippines quickly, but American scouting planes were
returning from sea, reporting Japanese warships, barges,
and aircraft were approaching Philippine island of Luz n.
Enemy ships proceeded to envelope Luzon on three sales
which were open to the sea in order to shell the shore from
ship batteries and to bomb the defenses from the air. Lnvad-
ing parties attempted to land, but Filipino and American
shore batteries stop the attempts. For two days the fierce bat-
ties ensued.
During this time, when Capt. Kelly and his crew weren't
sleeping under the wings of their Boeing 17, had been rard
at work "smashing" enemy barges attempting to set inv4d-
ing forces on land, I
According to 2nd Lt. Donald Robins, co-pilot of Kelly's
crew, on the morning of December 10th, they had returned
to Clark Field to reload on bombs and gasoline. When they
were about half through with loading, the air-raid warr~ig
sounded. Without taking any time to warm up each motbr
separately, Robins started all four at once and climbed -n.
The bomber lifted into the sky with 26-year-old Kelly at,the
wheel. He was the deputy squadron leader and had been giv-
en direct orders to "get" an enemy aircraft carrier lying dff
the northern coast of Luzon.
As reported by the Tallahassee Magazine, Keli's
bomber only had three 600-pound bombs. Two other bomber
planes departed from Clark Field as well. All three flew an
different directions to attack separate targets. Apparently
there was no aircraft carrier. Americans believed there Avys
an enemy ship in the area because Japanese Navy Zeo,
planes which had participated in the previous day's raid. [
At this point, Kelly and his crew.were all alone, without
fighter cover or other bombers to back them up. Kelly ias
deep in enemy territory and flying over a large Japa ee
ship invasion force.
Despite having the odds against him, Kelly made tie
command decision to ignore his standing orders and attack
the nearest target of opportunity, which happened to be tie
largest warship in the invading force. Many people believe it
was the battleship Haruna, but it was actually the hea,
cruiser Ashigara.
*.. At 22,000 feet, Kelly circled, carefully lined up, and-at
20,000 feet, dropped all three bombs on board. At least onef
the bombs hit the target because explosions could be seen
from Kelly's bomber. The Ashigara didn't sink; it went onto
fight through most of the war before faintly being sunk n
June 1945.
S By attacking the Ashigara, Kelly's plane attracted the
unwanted attention of the 10 nearby Zero aircraft. The
Zero's gunned their engines and lined up behind Kelly In the
enemy's first attack, one crewman was killed and instru-
ment panels were shot but, but the bomber kept flying until
it finally caught fire.
Editor to Air Force Magazine online, John L. Frisbee
says, "A second attack set the left wing ablaze. The fire
:spread rapidly into the fuselage, filling the flight deck with
smoke."
According to the Lt. Robins, Kelly looked up, around, be-
low. Then in a steady, commanding'voice, Kelly shouted the
order: "All out, boys! Everybody bail out!"
The rear gunners were the first to jump. They were fol-
lowed by the bombardier and radio operator, Lt. Robins says
that after these two men jumped, the understructure of the
plane went completely out of control, lurching so acutely
that he and Kelly were pitched out of their seat and thrown
against the wall of the cabin.
Just as 2nd Lt. Robins started to jump, the plane ex-
ploded. Robins was blown clear with minor injuries, but Kel-
ly was .killed immediately The wreckage fell to the ground,
crashing five miles from Clark Field. Kelly's body was later
found inside. There is another story saying both Kelly and
Robins were, ejected from the plane. Robins parachute man-
aged to open in time, but Kelly's didn't. His crushed body
was found by his crewmen and carried to a field hospital. It
is unknown which one of these is the true occurrence.
Kelly was the first American casualty of the war. His
heroism sent young men rushing to recruiting stations to eh-
list. All over the country, Colin P. Kelly flying clubs were dr-
ganized.
According to Fraser in her book, Marion Kelly took the
first train to Florida and turned over her son Corky to Kel-
ly's parents in Madison. She is reported to have said, "Here,
you have another Colin to live for. Keep him for both of ~s
' while I am doing Red Cross work."
Corky Kelly-was only 18 months old when his father
died. When President Roosevelt learned of Kelly's death, he
was so moved that he wrote a letter addressed to the futui^e
president of the United States, asking him to appoint Corliy
to West Point as soon as he turned 18.
Florida Governor Holland wrote a letter to the Tampa
Morning Tribune, asking them to inquire their readers to
send donations to Kelly's family and set up a college fund fbr
the boy Corky.
Years later, President Dwight D. Eisenhower would
make good on the request from President Roosevelt; Colin P.
Kelly, ml, attended West Point, graduated and served he
Army in Germany and at Fort Riley in Kansas. He the t-
tended divinity school, returned to the Army where he e-
came an assistant chaplain at West Point. He retired to 's
current position as pastor of the Trinity Episcopal Chu h
in Los Alamos, N.M. He has been there for the past 20 ye 's.
Kelly is remembered by the nation as the first Ameri
hero of the Second World War. In his article, Frisbee 1h-.
cludes:
"Alone and far from friendly territory, he attacked d
damaged a heavily armed ship, then sacrificed his own l o
save his crew."
Emy Kelly Howerton, Colin's sister, resides in Mad n
to this day, as do his niece, Mary, and his nephew, wh is
named after him, Colin Howerton.

Market Roars Back After Bank Earnings Surprise


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
"As go the banks, so goes Wall Street," has been
the mantra for months by both experts and novices
with an interest in the stock market, particularly
over the last several months.
On Thursday, April 9, Wells Fargo & Co. sur-
prised the market with an early profit report that
blew past expectations thanks to a strong increase
in its lending business. Investors have been grasp-
ing at any :sign of improvement in the crippled
banking industry, so Wells Fargo's report that it ex-
pects first-quarter earnings of $3 billion provided
an encouraging sigh that the stall out in borrowing
activity may finally be on the move again. Wells Far-



Your Tax Refund: Invest Today
for Tomorrow's Goals
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones


The tax-filing deadline:arrives, this week.VVill you be
getting a refund? If so, take the time to consider how
best to use it because, when used wisely, your tax
refund can give you a few added steps on the. road
toward achieving your financial goals, .

Of course, if you filed your taxes weeks ago, you
might have already received a refund. But given the cur-
rent economic environment, you might have kept the
money in a "holding place" while you waited for an uptick
in the financial markets; At any rate, if you have access
to a refund this year, you now have the opportunity to
put that money to good use. .

How? Here are a few ideas:

/* Help fund your IRA. In 2008, the average federal
tax refund was $2,429, according to the Internal
Revenue Service. If you were to receive that amount, it
would cover almost half of your IRA contribution for this
year, as the annual limit is $5,000. (You can put in
$6,000 if you're 50 or older). A traditional IRA grows tax
deferred, while a Roth IRA grows tax free,,provided you
have held your account for at least five years and don't
take withdrawals until you reach age 59-1/2. Your IRA
may have taken a hit last year, but if you fund it with
quality investments and avoid making withdrawals until
retirement, you can take' important steps to help rebuild
your portfolio.
Help build an emergency fund. You could use part
ofyour refund for an IRA and part to help build an emer-
gency fund. Ideally, you Should have six to 12 months'
worth of living expenses in a liquid account to help pay
for unexpected costs, such as a major car repair, a new
furnace or a costly medical bill. Without such an emer-
gency fund, you might be forced to dip into your long-
term investments to pay for these costs and that can
hurt your progress toward your financial objectives.
Help rebalance your portfolio. Based on your risk
tolerance, time horizon and long-term goals, you may
have decided to put~a certain percentage of your assets
in "growth" vehicles and a certain percentage in income-
oriented investments. At that point, your portfolio was in
equilibrium. But during the long bear market, your port-
folio may have sustained enough losses to become
"unbalanced." In other words, some of your investments
may have lost so much value that they no longer make
up the percentage of your holdings that you had origi-
nally intended. Of course, you could wait for these
investments to bounce back and they may, given
enough time but if you wanted to speed up the rebal-
ancing process, you could use your tax refund to add
the right types of new investments to your mix.

Ironic as it may seem, there may not be a better
year in which to invest your refund. You can find many
quality investments at reasonable prices today, so your
refund can help you add extra shares to your accounts
and the more shares you own, the better off you may
be when the market turns around. So put your refund to
work soon.

Serving Individual Investors Since 1871


go said it benefited from its January acquisition of
Wachovia and an increase in mortgage applications.
Wells Fargo's announcement injected a deci-
sively upbeat tone into the market after three days
of choppy trading. Bank shares had been sluggish
this week following worrisome forecasts from key
analysts about the bad loans they still carry on their
balance sheets and other long-term woes. Major
banks begin reporting first-quarter results next
week. All in all,. Wells Fargo's performance in the
first quarter neutralized some of those worries.
Wells Fargo jumped 31.7 percent- Thursday and oth-
er major banks also barreled higher, including Bank
of America Corp., which added 35.3 percent. JP Mor-
gan Chase & Co. rose 19.4 percent, and Citigroup
Inc., up 12.6 percent.
Regarding, the overall banking sector, the gov-
ernment has recently complet-
ed its "stress test" of 19
major banks, all of which
received a passing grade.
SFederal regulators have
told the nation's largest
banks to keep quiet
about their performance
on Stress tests, however.
They fear investors ,
could punish companies
with nothing to brag
about. In letterst6O the 19
banks undergoinhgtests of :
their financial strength,
regulators told the companies
not to disclose their performance during upcoming
earnings, announcements, according to industry and
government officials who requested anonymity be-
cause they are not authorized to discuss the process.
The order was the latest in a series of govern-
ment moves designed to keep good news about
strong banks from dooming others to a downward
spiral of falling share prices and financial weak-
ness. If banks receiving the highest marks trumpet
their results, the'fear is investors might push down
share prices of those companies that make no such ,
announcements.
Government officials want to announce the re-
sults all at once,.at the end of the month. The stress
tests are a centerpiece of the Obama administra-
tion's ongoing effort to stabilize the banking indus-
try. The tests put the banks' books to a series of
negative scenarios,, including double-digit unem-
ployment and further drops in home values.
The fest results will help regulators determine


which banks are strong enough with current subsi-
dies, which need more money from the government
or private investors, and those not worth saving.
The letters follow public statements from bank
executives about the tests, including Wells Fargo &
Co. Chief Executive Richard Kovacevich's calling
the process "asinine." Bank of America Corp. CEO
Kenneth Lewis and Citigroup Inc. CEO Vikram Pan-
dit both have alluded to strong performance on sep-
arate, internal stress tests in recent memos seeking
to build employee confidence. Lewis also told re-
porters last month he expects Bank of America to
pass the government's tests. Wells Fargo has re-
ceived a $25 billion government bailout; Bank of
America and Citigroup each received $45 billion. *
Spokesmen for the Federal Reserve, Bank of
America and Citigroup would not comment on the
issue. Wells Fargo spokes-
woman Julia Tunis
Bernard said the compa-
ny doesn't comment on
discussions with regula-
tors. The letter echoes
earlier government
moves to use strong
b banks as cover for those
that need more help. For
example, then-Treasuy
Secretary Henry Parll-
"son forced the nine
d airgest bariks to take cap-
ital injections all at once
last fall so the weakest banks
wouldn't be centered out.
The Securities and Exchange Commission On
Wednesday opened a public debate on how to pre-
vent downward pressure on stocks from investors
betting against their performance a practice
called "short selling." Critics of the practice, in-
cluding many in the financial industry, blame short
sellers for causing much of the panic that engulfed
financial markets last fall.
Conversely, industry groups also have com-
plained about regulators forcing healthy banks to
take bailouts. Some smaller banks already have re-,
turnei the government's money plus interest
because they were unhappy with new conditions
Congress had imposed. Large banks, including JP

Discussions To Limit Short Selling Intensify


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Responding to the depressed
financial markets, regulators are
preparing to take steps that
could, at least temporarily, prop
up stock prices. In the process,
however, some critics say the
measures could undermine the
integrity of the stock .market.
The Securities and Exchange
Commission plans to announce
several proposals to permanently
restrict traders froni making bets
that stock prices will decline
when those prices are already
dropping.
The proposed restrictions on
these so-called "short sales" -
which Sam Walton was purported
to have called "Un-American" -
follow lobbying by financial insti-
tutions and other companies,
which have experienced sharp de-
clines in their stock prices, and
their allies in Congress.
Short-selling is the practice of
borrowing stock and selling it in
the hope that its price declines. If
it does drop, then the seller profits
by buying it back at the lower
price and returning the borrowed
shares. Some companies and Wall
Street executives have blamed
short-selling for needlessly accel-
erating declines in stock prices
and contributing to the demise of
companies like Bear Sterns and
Lehman Brothers.
Other market players dis-
agree. They say short-sellers are


the market's whistle-blowers, and
their stock trades and skeptical
analyses of corporate balance
sheets are essential to the effi-
cient functioning of the markets.
Many large investors' also use
short-selling techniques as a
hedge to protect them against
losses in declining markets.
Officials were. working
through the weekend to draft sev-
eral possible rule changes, includ-
ing a tougher variation of a
former rule that prohibited short
sales while a stock price was de-
clining. That rule, known as the
"uptick rule," was put in place in
1938 in response to the market
turbulence of the Great Depres-
sion. It was repealed two years
ago. The uptick rule was more re-
strictive for short-sellers trading
stocks listed on the New York
Stock Exchange than those trad-
ing on Nasdaq. But one of the new
proposals could change that and
make it more difficult for short-
sellers on all exchanges.
The S.E.C. also plans to an-
nounce that it is considering a
proposal by the major exchanges
that would impose restrictions on
short-selling only after a stock
suffers a daily drop by a specified
percentage. Last year the commis-
.sion imposed a series of tempo-
rary and hastily drafted
restraints on short-sales after
heavy pressure from Wall Street
and the Treasury secretary at the
time from the Bush Administra-


tion, Henry M. Paulson, Jr.
The slumping financial mar-
kets have been rebounding
steadily in the last month for
many reasons, including the reg-
ulatory and legislative decisions
in Washington. The Dow Jonbs
industrial average closed On
Good Friday above 8,000, a major
gain from the 6,500 level of four
weeks ago.
There has also been growing
political pressure for the commfs-
.sion to act. A bipartisan group of
six senators, led by Senator Ed-
ward E. Kaufman, Democrat, if
Delaware, has demanded tighter
restrictions over short-sellers. :
Kaufman, who took the seat
of Vice President Joe Biden,
made short-selling restrictions
the first piece of legislation he ih-
troduced.
Supporters of short-selling
have said that the practice is' a
convenient scapegoat and that
new restrictions are simply pul-
ishing traders who have legiti-
mate reasons for believing that
some companies have had over-
valued stock prices. In proposifig
to repeal the old rules two yeals
ago, the New York exchange
wrote that "short-sale price re-
strictions have become not only
unnecessary, but also their coh-
tinued maintenance will serte
only to interfere with the meclla-
nisms of an efficient market." i

Quick Ways To Slim Down


- You don't have to bty expensive foods or try mir-
.'acle diets to shape up for summer. Use these easy,
2healthy'tips to burn fat so you can look and feel bet-
-iter just in time for swimsuit season.
Eat more frequently. (every two to three
-'hours). Going longer without food can send your
-blood sugar and energy levels plummeting, which
ccan make you crave high-sugar, high-fat foods. To
eat smarter during a busy day, consume nutritious
'low-fat and low-sugar snacks between meals. Try
fruits or nuts. For a quick, healthy meal; or a lunch
'in the office, try Minute Ready to Serve Brown Rice.
_,This nutty-tasting rice is ready after 60 seconds in
-the microwave and can be mixed with a variety of
-,ingredients, from honey to vegetables.
-' Don't skip breakfast. Starting your day with a
-'healthy meal is,the best way to boost your metabo-
-,lism and burn off extra calories. Try to eat within
?the first hour of your day because energy has been
jrdepleted the night before. If you skip breakfast, your
: * _


body will shift into starvation mode and begin to
conserve energy, thus burning fewer calories.
6 Eat more fiber. Fiber fills you up fast, allow-
ing you to eat less and see pounds disappear. To fight
hunger and give yourself an energetic boost, choose
fiber-rich vegetables such as broccoli and asparagus
and stock your pantry with a variety of whole
grains such as brown rice, bulgur and pats. Whether
you are preparing a dish or a salad, don't reach for
the white potatoes and bread. Think whole grains
and you'll be rewarded with additional fiber and
anti-aging nutrients. And if you don't want to wait
45 minutes to cook brown rice, try Minute Brown
Rice, which is ready in 10 minutes but still contains
the same nutrients, as long-cooking brown rice. For
a delicious and healthy spring meal, try this easy
recipe:
Spring Vegetable Rice Salad .
2 cups Minute Brown Rice, uncooked
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1 cup cut-up asparagus spears (1-inch), cooked,
cooled
S1 cup light salad dressing
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
:1 tablespoon grated lemon peel "... ;
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Prepare rice according to package directions.
.Toss rice with tomatoes and asparagus in medium
Sbowl. Mix remaining ingredients until well blended.
Add,to rice mixture; toss to coat. Serve immediately
or refrigerate.
Serves 8.
You can enjoy a big bowl of fresh and filling rice
and vegetable salad and still stay fit.

Q Uestion: I want to change my smile with veneers. How
many veneers should I get?

An swe r: Veneers are various types of porcelains facing which
are bonded over teeth. They can correct the color, the shape, and the
alignment of teeth. There are limits to what they can do, but for many
patients they provide the fast quick and easy smile makeover without
enduring braces which could take years.,
How many? I suggest 4 or 8. Last week I explained when four veneers
is better than two. The other question' I get is that the patient wants
veneers to change the shape and the color of their teeth. They don't like
that yellow or gray color and they want a dazzling white smile makeover.
They look in the mirror and decide they only want to veneer the 6 front
teeth that show in the mirror. I always suggest veneering 8 teeth when
patients want the dazzling white smile makeover. I understand that only
the 6 front teeth show in a mirror. The trouble is that when people talk to
you they are frequently off to one side. They see the first back tooth on
the side which is still yellow or gray., It is a real tip off to see white in the
front and dark in the back. There are numerous photos of famous
celebrities that only have 6 veneers. After a few camera shots from the
side in People Magazine they have to go back and have the veneers
redone. Doing 8 veneers wraps the smile and will give dazzling results.
Next'week I will tell you how to know how white you can go with your
smile.
Many patients would like to change just the two front teeth. They just don't
realize that they may risk looking like Bugs Bunny. The four front teeth
works better. The veneers can be made to match the color of the eye
teeth and at the same time correct the shape and alignment of the four
front teeth. This is a fabulous smile enhancement which makes for a very
natural look..
Next week I tell you when to consider 8 veneers rather than four.

Wedding You'll Sti
Wedding album, videos and a carefully pre-
served gown -- your wedding mementoes are meant
to be precious reminders of your special day. But
you may find yourself cringing with shame when
you look at your album years down the road if you
choose trendy over traditional style for'the look of
your wedding.
It's easy to tell the difference between a look
that's trendy and a more classic style. Think of the
bell bottoms and love beads from
the '70s and big hair and "Dy-
nasty"-style gowns of the '80s --
looks that were "hot" at one time,
but that years later elicit: an eye-
roll and a "what was I thinking"
attitude from women who wore
them.
Now consider the elegance,
grace and demure femininity of
icons like Grace Kelly, Ingrid
Rergman and Audrey Hepburn.
Their' style was classic and time-
.less --and one that today's smart
bride mimics to ensure she'U love
the look of her wedding as much
in 20 years as she does the day she
walks down the aisle.
Today's bride knows that
choosing fabrics, silhouettes and
accessories borrowed from the
classic era:-- the 1940s through Tie a classic
Sthe 1960s -- willgive her wedding cessories togetl
and gown timeless appeal. No dat- shed hairstyle s
ed looks from easy-to-identify chignon and ke
fashion fads for her. The classic derstated. Dark
look also plays well with the eyeliner extend(

growing trend to achieve less te e
with more by accenting the ba- black mascara
sics with' luxurious finishing red lipstick perf
touches. the bride's con
Here's how to achieve that that's necessary

Avoid large, modern swags of fabrics in favor
of silhouettes that emphasize an hourglass figure.
