Board Approves Creation Of


Fire Coordinator Position


Duties To Be Determined In Coordination With


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing. Inc.
When the Board of
County Commissioners
voted 4-1- to approve
(Vickers against) the
creation of a Fire Coor-
dinator during their
June 3 meeting, there
was little public com-
ment because the issue
had not been put on the
agenda. Consequently,
those most likely to op-
pose the decision - the
volunteer departments -
were not in attendance.
So, when VFD executive
leadership gathered the
following evening at the
Madison County Fire
Board meeting, consid-
erable opposition was
expressed.
� Complaints ranged
from concern that the
fire coordinator would
attempt to manage the
volunteer departments
and grow the authority
of the position, to sim-
ply being put off that
such a significant move
would, not be on the


agenda and invite public
comment to the board.
The idea had been previ-
ously visited in light of
increased liability and
training concerns, but
no information regard-
ing a pending vote had
been mentioned.


Alfred Martin
Chief, MFD
The abrupt intro-
duction of, the motion
creating the' position
was not without reason,
being due in large part
to recent changes in the

ment of Director Jim
Stanley on June 30. Pro-
gram Coordinator Vicki
Brown has already been
approved as Interim Di-
rector. leaving her posi-
tion vacant. When
preparing to post that
vacancy, it was proposed
that the Program Coor-
dinator role be revised to
include new Fire Coordi-
nator responsibilities
under a shared position
with separate identities.
It was further suggested
that the Program Coor-
dinator Fire Coordina-
tor position would
require no additional
tax dollars, instead fund-
ing would occur through
job streamlining.
Regardless of .the
cost-efficiency or poten-
tial utility of the posi-
tion, however, the

Why Is There Such High


Emphasis Oi
My daughter is in the 3rd grade. She has a 3.84
GPA. How can a child that averages all A's and B's
fail the reading on the FCAT. The lowest GPA she
had was a 3.33 and that was for the 9 weeks period of
time that the FCAT was being studied for and taken.
Why does the state put so much emphasis on the
FCAT. It should be averaged, or compared with
their GPA or something. Now she has to give up 6
weeks of her summer, and give up her family vaca-
tion to attend a reading remedial class, 4 hours a day.
There should at least be something they can do on-
line with a parent, and then be retested at a facility
or something. My other daughter is in 10th grade
and she failed the reading. She is also a 3.84 GPA stu-
dent. Why! She has to give up her dual enrollment in
Vocational School next year to be able to take the re-
medial course for reading. And they both read all
the time. The state, schools, and teachers make such
a big deal out of the FCAT that it freaks the kids
out. They make sure they know that if they do not
pass it (certain grades) that they will be retained. If
you look at the statistics since the FCAT started in
2002 the failing percentage has gone up. Again I ask
Why? I have spoken to many people: parents, teach-
ers, guidance counselors ect and they all agree with
my point. I am researching the FCAT and going to


ni The FCAT?
start a petition. But for now, my girl's lives will be
on hold. It is not fair to the children. Again, I ask
WHY? And how in the world am I supposed to make
sure my daughter is there everyday from 8 am till 12
pm? Parents have jobs, and last I looked, I can not af-
ford to work-part time. It does not make any since to
me and maybe you don't care, but, I know the par-
ents and teachers and people that don't even have
kids in school have expressed their discuss with the
FCAT LAWS. The letter I received from the school
states: If you choose to not have your child attend
they will be retained, BY LAW, in 3rd grade for the
2009/2010 school year. There are some pretty stupid
LAWS out their, but this one takes the cake! Espe-
cially with 3.84 GPA!
I am not just sending this to local newspapers; I
am sending it to all of Florida. It does not matter
what school district we are...what matters is it is
happening all over Florida.
Do your research, I guarantee you will find kids
in your own neighborhood going thru the same
problem! The problem is not going to correct itself.
It takes public AWARENESS!
Thank you,
. Susan Walker

Seven Reasons Not To

Mess With A Child


* A little girl was talking to her teacher about
whales. The teacher said it was physically impossi-
ble for a whale to swallow a human because even
though it was a very large mammal, its throat was
very small. The little girl stated that Jonah was,
swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiter-
ated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was
physically impossible. The little girl said, "When I
get to Heaven, I will ask Jonah." The teacher asked,
"Whafif Jonah went to Hell?" The little girl replied.
"Then you ask him."
* A kindergarten teacher was observing her
classroom of children while they were drawing. She
would occasionally walk around to see each child's
work. As she got to one little girl who was working
diligently, she asked what the drawing was. The girl
replied, "I'm drawing God." The teacher paused ahnd
said, "But no one knows what God looks like.", With-
out missing a beat or looking up from her drawing,
the girl replied, "They will in a minute."
\* A Sunday school teacher was discussing the
Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds.
After explaining the commandment to "honor" thy
Father and thy Mother, she asked, "Is there a com-
mandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers
and sisters?" Without missing a beat, one little-boy,
the oldest of a family, answered, "Thou shalt not
kill." '
* One day, a little girl was sitting and watching
her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She
suddenly noticed that her mother had several
strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her


brunette head. She looked at her mother and inquis-
itively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white,
Mom?" Her mother replied, '"Well, every time that
you do something wrong and make me crjy or un-
happy, one of my hairs turns white." The little girl
thought about this revelation for a while and then
said, "Momma, how coihe ALL of grandma's hairs
Iare white?"
. The children had all been photographed, and
the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy
a copy of the grpup picture. "Just think how nice it
will be to look at it when you are all grown up and
say, 'There's Jennifer; she's a lawyer,' or 'That's
Michael; he's a doctor.'" A small voice at the back of
the rpom rang out, '"And there's the teacher, she's
dead."
* A teacher was giving a lesson on the circula-
tion of blood. Trying to make the matter clearer, she
said, "Now, class,'if I stood on my head, the blood, as
you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in
the face." "Yes," the class said. "Then why is it that
.while I am standing upright in the ordinary posi-
tion, the blood doesn't run into my feet?" A little fel-
16w shouted, "Cause your feet ain't empty."
* The children were lined up in the cafeteria of
a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head
:of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made
a note and posted on the apple tray: "Take only ONE.
God is watching." Moving further along the limch
line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of
chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note,
"Take all:you want. God is watching the apples."

Gitmo


Lee
Limelight
Jacob Bembry
Columnist


Two days into his
presidency on Jan. 22,
Barack Obama signed
an executive order sig-
naling his intention to
close the terrorist de-
tainee facility at Guan-
tanamo Bay, Cuba
within the year. This
was done before any
plan was formulated
about what to do with
the current detainees.
He made the age-old mis-
take of putting the cart
in front of the horse.
Last month, the
president's request to
Congress for $80 million
to close the facility was
rejected by his own par-
ty. He still has no plan of
how to handle the 240
terrorists currently
housed at. Gitmo and
Congress said "no plan -
no money," a perfectly
logical (but unusual for
Congress) conclusion.
Latest polls show
that by two to one, the
American people reject
the idea of closing the
Gitm6 prison, particu-
larly if it means that the
bad guys would be trans-
ferred to our shores.
Their rationale - the fa-
cility is working as it
was designed, incarcer-
ating terrorists ,who
mean us harm. Why,
close a perfectly good fa-
cility that is accomplish-
ing its job?
Those who want to
see the facility, closed,
including our young
president, argue that the
word "Gitmo" is a stain
on our international
reputation. They argue
that the only way to im-
prove our reputation is
to close the facility and
properly adjudicate each
case.
I have some impor-
tant news for you - the
primary reason that Git-
mo is a dirty word rests


National
Security
Joe Boyles
Guest Columnist


squarely in the hands of
the Democrat party and
their willing allies in the
media. Early in the war
against al-Qaeda terror-
ism, the Democrats
seized on a political
strategy to discredit the
Bush Administration's
handling of detainees
claiming a litany of so-
called abuses - human
rights, torture, starva-
tion, suicide, religious
insults, etc. The strate-
gy was to seize any news
item, real or imagined,
and blow it out of pro-
portion into an interna-
tional incident. The
main stream media be-
.came their willing ac-
complices.
In fact, the detention
facility at Guantanamo
Bay is a model facility. I
will daresay that the ter-
rorists who are housed
there receive better med-
ical care than most of
the citizens of Madison
County. The administra-
tors of this facility have
been under intense pub-
lic scrutiny over the past
five years and have gone
above and beyond to
treat their prisoners
with respect and, dignity.:
In the process, our
guards have been sub-
jected to horrible insults,
injury and degradation
by the al-Qaeda thugs
they guard, but of
course, this doesn't fit
the media template, so
these incidents are
rarely if ever reported.
So here are the facts
and the logical conclu-
sions of Obama's mis-


Did You Know...

David Prowse was the actor
who wore the Darth Vad-
er suit in Star Wars. He
spoke all of Vader's
lines and didn't
know that his voice.
was going to be
dubbed over by
James Earl Jones
until he saw the
screening of the
movie.


Not surprisingly, he has
found that it is far easi-
er to campaign against
something than solve'
the problem when given
the responsibility.
The only logical
outcome to this
quandary is that Obama
needs to rename the fa-
cility, put into place any
reforms that he thinks
necessary, and leave the
bad guys where they are.
Some of these cases can
be adjudicated- nd the
prison population will
diminish. Over time, at-
trition will take its toll.
But, I'm not sure that
logic will fit in this case,
because President Oba-a
ma has 'been very stri-
dent in his remarks
toward' Gitmo... Regard-
less, this is the best
course of. action that I
can see.

guided policy The Git-
mo detention facility is a
model prison and the
wards are well treated.
To close this facility and,
build another some-
where else. makes no
economic sense when
we are running record,
deficits. To bring many
of these prisoners to the
United States and try
them with our legal pro-
tections would be a legal
and public relations
nightmare. There is a
chance that if some of
these detainees are
found "not guilty," they
could be released on our
streets: If we put some
of these thugs in our
jails, there is a distinct
possibility that it may
endanger our guards
and lead to: additional
"converts" to al-Qaeda's
philosophy within our
domestic prisons.
The Obama Admin-.
istration has a real mess
on its hands, in large
part, of their own mak-
ing. The president reit-
erates as he did last
week in Cairo that the
Gitmo detention facility
will be closed, but he
doesn't know how to do
it. He acknowledges
that many of the prison-
ers cannot be tried un-
der US law and are too
dangerous to release.
He has decided that
some of the prisoners
will be tried under the
authority of military
commissions, a position
he absolutely opposed
while in the Senate and,
on the campaign trail.

REGIONAL CRIME/FROM PAGE ONE


Letter To The Editor Of Florida Times-Union Greene Pub.

From Special Agent cont from Page 1A


Recently, the FBI's New York Office arrested four men
who were plotting to plant explosives outside a New York
synagogue and fire surface-to-air-weapons at U.S. military
Aircraft. While the full details of this plot have yet to be dis-
closed, I am concerned about the tone of the AP article ap-
pearing in Friday's Times-Union, which continues a long








Caavc letesA p lf I' Mr


*Black Buck Antelope


I L


I


line of press reporting questioning the viability of terror-
ist plots in the United States.
In Friday's piece, the AP said, "They were amateurs
every step of the way. They had trouble finding guns and
bought cameras at Wal-Mart to photograph their targets.
One was a convicted purse snatcher." The story goes on to
say they were arrested, "following a long line of home-
grown, headline-making terror plots since Sept. 11, 2001
that never came close to reality because the FBI inserted it-
self in the earliest stages."
I think it is important for Americans to consider that
had 19 young men been arrested on September 10, 2001,
with nothing more than box cutters, duct tape, and a plan to
fly hijacked planes into the World Trade Center and Wash-
ington, D.C., landmarks, the story of those arrests might
have had the same patronizing tone. Unfortunately we
know how the story unfolded on September 11th. And while
the plot still seems amateurish in retrospect, in the words
of the 9/11 Commission Report, it was "good enough."
Our brains are wired to perceive threats as more like-
ly when they are closely related in time to events which
have recently occurred. Thus while most could not imag-
ine the events of September 11 in the days or weeks before,
and while the homegrown terrorist plots that have recent-
ly been disrupted seem' amateurish and unlikely, more
than 80 percent of Americans were convinced another at-
tack was imminent right after September 11th. Don't we all
'drive a little more carefully with our children in the car af-
ter seeing a tragic accident? Or check the batteries in our
smoke detectors when there's been a deadly fire in our
neighborhood? Yet the probabilities of an auto accident or
house fire were always there-we just became more at-
tuned to them because of real events close in time to our
newfound vigilance.
I would like the citizens of north Florida to know that
whenever they hear the FBI has disrupted a terrorist plot,
it is not because we have inserted ourselves in at the earli-
est stages. Every such action is always done in close coor-
dination with our law enforcement and intelligence
community partners to insure we have gleaned all possible
intelligence concerning the plotters and their infrastruc-
ture, and that we have carefully weighed the risk the ter-
rorists might do something outside of our knowledge.
Protecting the United States from terrorist attacks is
the highest priority of every FBI field division, and the
men and women of the FBI are committed to never losing
their vigilance about the risk of an attack, no matter how
far from 9/11 we move. We should always drive safely with
children in the car, check our smoke detectors regularly,
and be on the offensive in the fight against terrorists here
at home.

oversight, especially without a complete understand-
ing of why the position is essential and exactly how
it affects them.
The heritage and quality of the volunteer de-
partments has given each a superb reputation and
unique community identity that nobody wanted to
see diminished. All agree they have made decades of
sacrifice, the likes of which were recently demon-
strated during the flood recovery.
As the Chief of the City of Madison Fire De-
partment and County Commissioner, Alfred Martin
is considered a hub of the exchange.
"To develop the duties of a new Fire Coordinator,
we need the input of all of our fire departments. Our
county fire services have grown significantly over
the last five years, and we need a coordinator to make
sure liability and training, as well as state and feder-
al guidelines are maintained," Martin explained.
"Before the duties of the position are finalized,
we will urge participation from all the departments.
As far as the money is concerned, we believe we can
consolidate job responsibilities at the EOC so that no
additional tax dollars will be required," he added.
County Coordinator Allen Cherry is following
up on discussions with volunteer departments that


were initiated at the Fire Board meeting, as the
Emergency Management Department has recently
been shifted from reporting directly to the BOCC to
that of the County Coordinator.

You've just cleaned
your house out and
you've found stuff that
you no longer need but is
still usable. You could
just follow your basic in-
stincts and throw it out,
or. if you are a
packrat, you
could just r
shove it in a
, c o rn e r
somewhere
and believe
that one
day, you will
need it
again.
Are you
really going to
watch that
DVD again Shann
that you didn't really en-
joy watching the first
time?
Are you going to re-
ally take time to re-read
that book?
Maybe you have lost
a lot of weight. Why
would you need to hold
on to that dress or those
pants? Are. you really
hoping that you will gain
it back?
The stuff that you
throw out unnecessarily
can fill up the landfill
very easily Why would
you want to do that when
one man's trash can be
another man's treasure?
Shanna Mugge, of
Green# ill4 was 'looking
for ai'i.cnoinical way
of gettinfigid of some
things that she didn't
need. That's when she
discovered FreeCycle.
FreeCycle (located at
www.freecycle.org) en-
ables people to give
things they don't need
away for free. Shanna


was intrigued at the con-
cept and started her own
local group through the
world wide site. To get to
the Madison County site,
you can enter Madison-

search box of the
www.freecycle.org home
page or go to,
browse groups

you can look at the items
or join the group.
Shanna has posted
items she had available,
including old record al-
bums, clothes and dish-
es. A box of silverware
was quickly grabbed up.
Items wanted can
also be posted. A request
by *Shanna for photo

filled quickly
Another thing about
FreeCycle is that it can
help people's pocket-
books. Instead of having
to pay through the nose
for items, they can get the
items for free on FreeCy-

can also be sold by the re-

Getting students to take ownership of their
actions and realize the benefits and conse-
quences associated with them, whether in acade-
mics, school behavior or citizenship - actually
in any of those areas that create overall student
excellence - is a challenge. The Terrific Kids
Program was designed with that understanding
in mind.
The program was implemented at the Madi-
son County Central School for sixth graders who
are committed to improving themselves in those
areas critical to outstanding achievement. Once
committed, the student partners with a teacher
who monitors their completion of .a contract de-
veloped in the area of need for the student.
Many students participated in the program,
with all who completed their contract being eli-
. gible for a drawing at the end of the school year
sponsored by the Madison Kiwanis Club. The lo-
.cal Club initiated the program 18 years ago and
has presented a new bike to each year's winner.
The 2008-09 school year winner for the Ter-
rific Kids Program, and. recipient of a new bike,
was Katlyan McGuire. Local Kiwanian George
Willis was pleased and proud to present it to her
on May 21 during the Central School Awards Day.

Employers and jobseekers search-
ing for employment solutions in Madi-
son County can attest to the valuable
resources and exceptional staff oper-
ating Workforce. "Providing Solutions
for North Florida's Economy," Work-
force held the Grand Opening of their
new offices on June 5 at 10 a.m., where
government, education and civic lead-
ership came out to join the celebra-
tion. The new administrative office
and customer service center is now lo-


cated in the DeSoto (Harvey's) Plaza
on US 90 in Madison.
Public Relations Director Diane
Head explained how the good just got
better. "We are excited to have moved
into a more accessible location for all
of our customers. It was also impor-
tant to us to be able to design this
space so. we could better serve more
customers," as more individuals are
now aware of and using our services."
"Last Program Year, we served
just over 19,000 people, 4,500 of which
were first time users of our ser-


vices. This year, with the addition of
our second Mobile Unit, we have' ser-
viced 20,200 people with a month still
remaining in our Program Year, and
nearly 5,800 of those were first time
users of our services," she went on to
say
Prior to the ribbon cutting, Board
Chair Paul Kovary and Executive Di-
rector Sheryl Rehberg briefly ad-
dressed the group, each expressing
both excitement and tremendous ap-
preciation to all in attendance for
their support and leadership. Follow-


ing the ceremony, everyone was invit-
ed to tour the facility, including two
mobile units that feature the same
state-of-the-art technology available in
the service center. These mobile units
serve the other five North Florida
Workforce counties: Suwannee, Tay-
lor, Hamilton, Lafayette and Jefferson.
Through Workforce's on-going
and special programs, their goal is to
assist customers to become self-suffi-
cient, and at the same time, build the
economy of the rural North Florida
region they serve.

"Building Blocks kicked off great. We're very ex-

learning and enjoying themselves and we welcome
parents to drop by and see us. If they prefer, they can
enroll their child for just a week to two...whatever
fits their summer plans," the director said with her
customary pleasant smile.

sufficient. Town Manager Cheryl Archambault, hav-
ing served in executive positions for economic devel-
opment in the county, developed the camp model
based on her recognition that good jobs would never
come to the county unless the workforce was pre-
pared.
"The simple, but sometimes overlooked, truth is
that- the cycle must be broken early It's a lot like
planting seeds, because it takes years to build and
form good lifestyle and work skills. The camp is a
great start, although ultimately it will take a year-
round effort, which is something we look forward to
in the future. For the here and now though, the camp
is a wonderful way to start planting those essential
seeds. In fact, you should see the progress several of
our kids from last year have already demonstrated
that their parents attribute to Building Blocks," Ar-
chambault explained.
The first week of the camp is titled, "The World
of Sports," which, among other activities, includes
an introduction to the Olympics. The children
learned about the dedication and personal commit-
ment reflected in Olympic champions, while enjoy-
ing new and traditional sporting sessions. They
truly learned to: "Go for the gold!"

MONEY & FINANCE


USW Member From PCA Mill In

Valdosta Lobbies Congress over Tax

Relief For Struggling Paper Industry


Members of the
United Steelworkers
Union -(USW) are in-
forming members of the
Senate Finance Commit-
tee; ' House "Ways, and
Means Committee and
their congressional rep-
resentatives and sena-
tors about the'need to
retain the alternative
fuel mixture tax credit
for the U.S. paper indus-
try. Local paper worker
Ed Martin, who works at
the PCA mill in Valdos-
ta, -Ga., is one of the
members who met with
elected officials.
"We believe this is a
long-overdue credit for
an industry that is the
leader in the use of re-
newable energy," said
USW International Pres-
ident Leo W. Gerard.
"The paper sector has
invested millions of dol-
lars in recovery boilers
and other technologies
that use renewable fuels
derived from biomass
and even sells excess en-
ergy generated back, to
the power grid. This
credit allows the indus-
try to play a vital role in
our country's transfor-
mation to clean energy"
The tax credit origi-
nated from a 2007 tax law
change that expanded el-
igibility for a 50 cents-
per-gallon alternative
fuels mixture credit to
liquid fuels derived from
biomass, including the
I~rood pulp "black


liquor" by-product.
Companies can obtain
the credit by mixing al-
ternative fuel with 0.1
percent of a fossil fuel
like diesel. There is not a
limit as to: how much
credit can be taken.
The U.S. paper in-
dustry produces almost
70 percent, of its own
power from the wood
pulp black liquor by-
product. The industry's
contribution toward
greenhouse gas from the
burning of fossil fuels is
lessened by its sustain-
.able forestry practice of
planting, trees and its
use of biomass.
"The timing, of 'this
credit is impeccable,"
said USW International
Vice President Jon Gee-
nen, who heads the
union's, paper sector.
"The paper industry is
cash starved right now
and in need of capital in-
vestment to maintain
black liquor recovery
systems and develop oth-
er biomass conversion
This credit maintains
other critical infrastruc-
ture if there is to be a vi-
brant paper industry in
the U.S."
UBS Investment Re-
search said that the pa-
per industry represents
about 5-6% of U.S. manu-
facturing gross domestic
product and is a top 10
manufacturing industry
in most states.

"Cutting Losses" Can Be More
Painful Than You Think
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Why do stock prices fall? Various factors are involved, but
in a nutshell, prices drop when more people want to sell
stocks than buy them. Conversely, the more people who
buy a particular stock, the faster that stock's price will rise.
If you've studied basic economics and the law of supply and
demand,, you've already got a pretty clear sense -of why
stock prices move the way they do. And yet, while the
process sounds fairly.logical, the behavior of many
investors isn't - which gives you some good investment
opportunities right now.

To understand why so many investors have acted in a way
that may be counter-productive, let's look at consumer
behavior in another context. Suppose a hypothetical cou-
ple, Mike and Mary Ann, bought a house five years ago for
$200,000. They liked everything about the house, and it
was the right size to meet their family's needs for many
years to come. However, the sharp decline in the housing
market has caused Mike and Mary Ann such concern ihat
they decide to sell their house, even though they can only
get $160,000 for it. By selling now, they reason, they can
avoid further drops, and when the market stabilizes, they
can buy another house in the same neighborhood.

To sum up: Mike and Mary Ann took a $40,000 loss on a
house they didn't even need to sell. In essence, they were
betting that the housing market, against all historical evi-
dence, would not recover enough to compensate them for
staying put. Most people would question the rationality of
this type of behavior. Yet many of these same people do the
same thing when it comes to investments.

Specifically, over the past year and. a half, they have sold
investments - even quality investments - that still met
their needs for growth, income or a combination of both.
And when they've sold these investments, they've taken
losses - sometimes, big losses. Just like Mike and Mary
Ann, they thought they must.sell now to avoid bigger set-
backs later.
Don't make that mistake. If you weren't planning on selling
your investments before the market decline, why sell them
now, when you'll just be locking in a loss? Many successful
investors hold the same investments for 20, 30 or 40 years
- in fact, sometimes they pass these investments on to
their children, who also hold them for decades. Are you so
sure that your investments, which may indeed have
declined 40 percent or more over the past couple of years,
won't recover those losses and climb to new heights in the
years ahead?

You may someday need to sell, but do so for the right rea-
sons - a change in your goals, a need to rebalance your
portfolio or a fundamental change in the companies in
which you've invested. In the meantime, not only should
you hold on to the investments that that still meet your
needs, but you should also consider adding new invest-
ments while the price is so low. The more shares you own,
the better your financial position will be when the market
turns around.

This type of behavior takes patience, discipline and faith in
our markets. But over the past century, the investors who
have demonstrated these traits have been well rewarded -
and there's no reason you can't attain the same results.

my Some 250,000 jobs'
have been lost since the
early part of this
decade, and 25 mills
were closed in the past
two years alone. The tax
credit is seen as a life-
line for an industry that
has many of its mills in
small towns that depend
on the economic activity
generated from these fa-
cilities.
"If this tax credit is
removed, thousands of

?'Jobs like the one me

shuts down, we would
have a difficult time find-

way, this tax credit is

"Many companies'
are depending.,, on this
tax credit to survive and

have a chance to help the

this sector is lost."

largest industrial union
in North America. Over-
all it represents 850,000
workers in the pulp and

Miss Jean's Kindergarten And Day

Care Hosts 56th Annual Program

Miss Jean's Kindergarten and Daycare hosted its annual 56th Annual
Program on May 28 at the center. The program is a local favorite, and has
been well attended throughout the years by friends and families of the chil-
dren that go through the center.
The boys and girls welcomes friends and family to the program with
warm smiles and singing, "Good Evening To You-." Each child performed a
song of their choice that had a special meaning to them.
The group of children then sang together a song titled, "A Peanut Sit-
ting On A Railroad Track." The comedic song was about a peanut sitting on
a railroad track, and then being turned into peanut butter. The children
then performed "Twinkle Little Star," and a song about worms Wiggling
around in the yard. Up next, the group performed a popular song, "Jesus
Loves Me."
Family and friends gathered enjoyed a night of fun and singing, and
joyful moments as they watched the children receive a diploma and a bou-
quet of suckers.
To conclude the program, the children sang "Good Night Mommies And
Daddies." Refreshments were served following the program for all in atten-
dance.

John and Judy Bre-
mer, also educators
with a love of culture,
joined this impressive
parade of artistry
about a decade ago,
serving as dance in-
structors, once again
this evening. The cou-
ple 'literally took the
group through the mo-
tions of several classic
dance styles, adding
their own trendy twist
or two. They then rein-
forced the process with
a brief discussion em-
phasizing the social
benefit and personal joy
of learning classic
dance skills. David
Foust provided the mu-
sic.
"When you teach
school, the kid's be-
come like your own
children. You want to
meet their needs, what-
ever they may be. The
Kids Culture Club was
started with that in
mind. It is important
'for kids to take part of
activities in addition to
academics, so they will
understand, and can be
part of, all the opportu-
nities in life," Sanders
affectionately ex-
plained.
In addition to learn-
ing dining etiquette
and ballroom dance, the
students have attended
ballet (The Nutcracker)
and taken field trips to
museums and recitals.
All middle school
students are welcome
and urged to partici-

attitude is expected, but

them for their years of devoted service as she

HEALTH & NUTRITION


Swine Flu Science Update
The global spread of the swine flu - influen-
za virus A(H1N1) - virus shows no sign of slow-
ing as Africa reported its first confirmed case, in
Egypt, last week.
Keiji Pukuda, World Health Organization
(WHO) assistant director-general for health se-
curity and environment, said the agency was
close to declaring a "phase sLx" pandemic alert, a
fully-fledged pandemic where community spread
is established outside the first region where the
disease was reported.
In a telephone press conference, Anne
Schuchat, interim deputy director for the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) Science and Public Health Program, con.
firmed the CDC had shipped candidate virus
strains to several different manufacturers for the
production of a vaccine.
"Manufacturers involved in developing and
producing the novel H1N1 vaccine will start the
process by producing candidate lots in the coming
weeks," Schuchat said. But she warned that a vac-
cine was likely to be ready only by October because
clinical trials would need to be completed first.
BBC Online reported at the end of last month
that scientists have produced a viral strain that
can be used to make a vaccine against swine flu.
Stephen Inglis, director of the UK-based Na-
tional Institute for Biological Standards and Con-
trol, said their scientists had been "working
around the clock" since they received the first
isolate of swine flu from colleagues in the United
States at the beginning of May
"The strain is now available for supply to vac-
cine manufacturers so that they can begin the first
steps in-the vaccine production process, and to oth-
er flu laboratories around the world for research."
Elsewhere, New Scientist reports a scheme to
help poor countries meet the UN's Convention on
Civil Aviation, which requires nations to "pre-
vent the spread of communicable diseases by
means of air navigation."
The scheme aims to assist airports in developing
nations to prepare for a pandemic. Existing mea-
sures include managing infected passengers but
also in the pipeline is software to enable airport au-
thorities to detect someone with a sickly cough by
analysing patterns in their coughing frequency us-
ing networks of microphones installed in airports..
Coughers can be identified and then checked
for infection, says the article.

"Warrior Gene" To Gang


Membership, Weapon Use


Boys who carry a particular variation of the
gene Monoamine oxidase A (MAOA), sometimes
called the "warrior gene," are more likely not only
to join gangs but also to be among the most violent
members and to use weapons, according to a new
study from The Florida State University that is the
first to confirm an MAOA link specifically to gangs
and guns.
Findings apply only to males. Girls with the
same variant of the MAOA gene seem resistant to
its potentially violent effects on gang membership
and weapon use.
Led by noted biosocial criminologist Kevin M.
Beaver at FSU's College of Criminology and Crimi-
nal Justice, the study sheds new light on the inter-
play of genetics and environment that produces
some of society's most serious violent offenders.
"While gangs typically have been regarded as a
sociological phenomenon, our investigation shows
that variants of a specific MAOA gene, known as a
'low-activity 3-repeat allele,' play a significant role,"
said Beaver, an award-winning researcher who has
co-authored more than 50 published papers on the
biosocial underpinnings of criminal behavior.
"Previous research has linked low-activity
MAOA variants to a wide range of antisocial, even
violent, behavior, but our study confirms that these
variants can predict gang membership," he said.
"Moreover, we found that variants of this gene could
distinguish gang members who were markedly
more likely to behave violently and use weapons
.from members who were less likely to do either."
The MAOA gene affects levels of neurotrans--
mitters such as dopamine and serotonin that are re-
lated to mood and behavior, and those variants that
are related to violence are hereditary Some previ-
ous studies have found the "warrior gene" to be
more prevalent in cultures-that are typified by war-
fare and aggression.
"What's interesting about the MAOA gene. is its
location on the X-chromosome," Beaver said. "As a
result, males, who have one X-chromosome and one
Y-chromosome, possess only one copy of this gene,
while females, who have two X-chromosomes, carry
two. Thus, if a male has an allele (variant) for the
MAOA gene that is linked to violence, there isn't an-
other: copy to counteract it. Females, in contrast,
have two.copies, so even if they have one risk allele,
they have another that could compensate for it.,
That's why most MAOA research has focused on
males, and probably why the MAOA effect has, for
the most part, only been detected in males,"
. The new study examined DNA data and lifestyle
information drawn from more than 2,500 respon-
dents to the National Longitudinal Study of Adoles-
cent Health. Beaver and colleagues from Florida
State, Iowa State and Saint Louis universities de-
.tailed their findings in a paper to be published in a
forthcoming edition of the journal, Comprehensive
Psychiatry. Currently, the paper ("Monoamine oxi-
dase A genotype is associated with gang member-
ship and weapon use") is accessible online at www.
comppsychjournal.com via the '"Articles in Press"
link.
In addition to the MAOA study, Beaver's body
of biosocial criminology research includes .pub-
lished research that links genetics to adolescent
victimization and formation of delinquent peer
groups and the use of steroids to "roid rage" - all
among the first such works in the field, He won the


American Society of Criminology's 2009 Ruth
Shonle Cavan Young Scholar Award in recognition
of his outstanding scholarly contributions during
the short time since he earned a Ph.D. in criminal
justice at the University of Cincinnati in 2006.
Beaver is the coauthor/editor of Biosocial Crimi-
nology. A Primer (Kendall/Hunt, 2009) and six oth-
er books.

search and Florida State University's nationally top

Question: What age should I bring my
child for their first dental checkup?

Answer: We like to start early with
children so we can catch little problems and
avert many bigger problems later on. An
ounce of prevention definitely applies to
children's teeth. We encourage parents to get
their children used to the dental office. Bring
the child in for the parent's dental cleaning
visits. It gives the child a chance to "ride in
the chair like an astronaut." It also gives the
dentist a chance to look for "baby bottle" tooth
decay. Early decay can do significant
damage to the teeth by age two. The main
culprit is putting a child to bed with a bottle full
of juice. Babies certainly like their bottle to
sleep with. If the baby wants to sleep with a
bottle make sure the drink does not have
sugar which will rot the teeth. No punch drink
(sucrose), no fruit juice (fructose), no milk
(lactose). Place either water or a sugar free
drink in the bottle. .It makes a big difference in
the health of their teeth. When the child gets
older we bring the child in for their own
appointment to polish their teeth as young as
3 years of age.

Cowboys Round Up Newberry In Spring Classic


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc..
Following a decade
of football excellence;
the Madison County
Cowboys are entering a.
new era of football. Be-'
tween reorganized divi-
sions and losing a class
of seniors teaming with
talent,, the boys from
Boot Hill have their
work cut out for them.
However, if the Spring
Classic against Newber-
ry is any indicator, the
underclassmen are step-
ping up and ready to de-
liver.


Carroll, who has been
out for six weeks on ad-
vice from his doctor.
Twenty pounds lighter
and fired up for next
year, the champion mak-
er had considerable
praise for, the team and
great expectations for
the upcoming season.
"We graduated some
great players this year
and the new division is
strong, but we'll be
ready for next season.
The players and coaches
have been working hard,
and I look forward to ie-
joining them very soon,"


Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Michael Curtis, May 30, 2009
The Cowboy offense powered through the Pan-
thers all evening.


Assistant Head
Coach Michael Coe led
this one from the side-
lines, igniting his of-
fense early, racking up
several scores in the first
quarter, while Defensive
Coordinator Rod
Williams was the eye in
the sky, running his,
hard-hitting defense
from the stadium sky-
box.
Before the game,
players, coaches and
friends of the Cowboys
took a moment to offer
hugs and handshakes to
Head Coach Frankie


said Carroll.
The FHSAA - the
organization that over-
sees high school football
in the state - reclassi-
fied Madison, County to
2B from 2A back in De-
cember, until, the Cow-
boys petitioned to be
returned to 2A. The-peti-
tion- was accepted, but
the teams have been
changed, with notable
challengers Godby and
Rickards now sharing
the division. In addition
to the divisional 'shake-
up, several talented op-
ponents have been added


to the Madison schedule,
including Osceola, Leon
and Lake City.
A good crowd rolled
into Boot Hill with New-
berry on Saturday night,
May 30, traveling from
their home in Alachua
County Quarterback
Demetrius Dubose led
the visiting squad,
which featured several
standouts, but in the
end, the Cowboys proved
why they are perennial
champions, defeating
Newberry 30-14.
From the first snap,
Cowboy quarterback
Kelvin Singletary dis-
played the talent that
earned him the starting
role, while Mar'terrius
McDaniel showcased the
moves and speed that
gained him recognition
last season, including a
70-yard touchdown
*scamper that featured
acrobatics and broken
tackles. And although he
was recovering from a
back injury sustained in
practice, Bladen Gudz
once again demonstrat-
.ed his strong and accu-
rate kicking.
Scoring by quarter
was a follows:
1st Quarter
6:02 - Mar'terrius Mc-
Daniel - rushing
touchdown, Madison 7
- Newberry 0
3:38 - Mar'terrius Mc-
Daniel - rushing
touchdown (70 yards),
Madison 14 -.Newber-
ry0
2nd Quarter
5:25 - Willie McKnight -
rushing touchdown
(bad snap xp), Madi-
son 20 - Newberry 0
0:14 - Bladen Gudz - field
goal, Madison 23 -
Newberry 0
3rd Quarter
No scores
4th Quarter
11:12 - Caleb Robinson-
rushing touchdown,
Madison 23 - Newber-
ry7
6:54 - Dantonio Denson -
rushing touchdown,
Madison 30 - Newber-
ry 7
1:06 - Demetrius Dubose.
- rushing touchdown,
Madison 30 - Newber-
ry 14 (Final)
In addition to a well-
played game that fea-
tured starters and
* backups, the officials
featured one of Madi-


son's own, Davis Barclay,
who is entering his 35th
year as official with the
North Florida Officials
Association, headquar-
tered in Jacksonville.
Kudos goes out to the
Central School Assistant
Principal and his striped
colleagues, not only for


calling a good game, but
also for performing it
pro bono. It was their
way of supporting the
cause during these tight
economic times.
In addition to ramp-
ing up the athletes with
this spring warm up,
conditioning and acade-


The Southern Pine


Beetle Prevention


mics remain a top prior-
ity as well. Family,
friends and fans are
urged to encourage
these young men
throughout the summer
and into fall; after all,
they represent the com-
munity as they go for the
goal.
