Six Madison County Children Test Positive For Virus.


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Six Madison County children, who
attended Camp Pickett Lake (a church
summer camp in Lafayette County),
have tested positive for the H1N1
Virus.
Children from both Madison and
Jefferson Counties attended the camp
together.
Kim Barnhill, administrator for
the Madison/Jefferson County Health
Department, said that swab samples
were sent to the state laboratory Barn-
hill said 75-80 percent of the samples,


which are sent to the state lab to test
for the H1N1 novel strain (commonly
referred to as "swine flu") test positive.
"For some reason, adolescents
seem to be at greater risk for contract-
ing the virus than others," Barnhill
said.
Barnhill urges everyone who may
feel sick, having flu-like symptoms to
stay at home and not go into the pub-
lic, and for them to constantly wash
their hands to prevent the spread of
bacteria.
A Madison County woman, who
works as a nurse in Taylor County,


said that county had tested a suspected
case, which came back negative. She
said that H1N1 is not as bad as people
had once suspect-

"...adolescents
seem to be at

ed but that there is
not a vaccine for
the H1N1 virus.

All flu-like symptoms should be


treated with caution. These symptoms
include high grade fever (102 or high-
er), muscle aches, headaches, runny
nose (more common in children than
in adults), extreme tiredness, dry
cough, stomach symptoms, such as
nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, may
also occur but are more common in
children than adults.
The symptoms of novel H1N1 flu
virus in people are similar to the
symptoms of seasonal flu and include
fever, cough, sore throat, runny or
stuffy nose, body aches, headache,

Shortly before 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 18, a Madison County Sheriff's deputy spotted a four to five-foot
alligator crossing, Highway 90 just west of the City of Madison. The gator was heading north on to the prop-
erty of the Madison Central School. The subject was "detained" prior to going through the school driveway
gate and FWC was called. They were sending a trapper from Taylor County to relocate this alligator, who
was seeking a higher education. Two City of Madison Police officers at the scene assisted the deputy. The
officers kept an eye out for Mom and Dad.

The Madison County
High School Band will be
raising money for the up-
coming school year on Sat-
urday, July 25, at O'Reilly's
Auto Parts in Madison
from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. The
band members will be
washing cars for a dona-
tion of $5 per car. People
are encouraged to give
over and above the re-
quested amount if they
wish to do so.
The fundraiser is to
help the band cover costs
on instrument repairs,
band uniforms, travel ex-
penses for football games
and competitions. The
band relies heavily upon
the help and support of
the community and band
boosters to be able to oper-
ate and perform for the
community.

Among business conducted at the
City of Madison Commissioners
meeting on July 14, was the vote to
set the Truth in Millage (TRIM) rate
for the upcoming budget session.
This rate represents the maximum
assessment the city would apply for
tax purposes, which they set at 6.27.
There is often confusion about
mill rates, with many thinking it is a
percentage rate like sales taxes. In-
stead the defi-
nition is as "We are absoli
follows: to keeping ev
M i l l low as p(
Rate The
tax per dollar of assessed value of
property. The rate is expressed in
"mills", where one mill is one-tenth
of a cent ($0.001). For example, a
property with an assessed value of
$100,000 located in a municipality
with a mill rate of six (6) mills would
have a property tax bill of $600.
Again, by establishing the TRIM
rate, the commission has set the max-
imum allowable rate that can be ap-


Community Safety
plied; however, the actual rate may be
lower. Last year, for instance, the
commission set the TRIM rate at 7.57;
while the actual mill rate came in
much lower, at only 6.04.
When asked why the TRIM rate
was set so much lower in the first
place this year, City Manager Harold
Emrich noted, "We are making every
effort to keep taxes in line with last
year, despite the fact that our tax base
decreased by three and one half per-
cent. We are absolutely dedicated to
keeping
utely dedicated every ex-
ery expense as pense as low
)ssible..." as possible
without com-
promising on services."
Mayor Jim Stanley and his fellow
commissioners emphasized their de-
sire to make this year's budget as
conservative as possible for taxpay-
ers, in spite of the challenging econo-
my It was also cited as the reason
they set the TRIM rate so much lower
than last year.

13-Year-Old


Dies After


Swimming


In Madison


County Lake
The Nassau County Health Department was no-
tified of the death last week of a 13-year-old resi-
dent of Nassau County Follow up tests from the
CDC indicate that the child died from primary
amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM). This very
rare disease is caused by a microscopic organism
called Naegleria fowleri that is found in warm,
fresh, natural or manmade bodies of water. The
child had a recent history of having been swim-
ming in a lake in southern Madison County
Naegleria is a microscopic amoeba most com-
monly found in the upper layer of sediment in the
bottom of lakes and ponds with mud floors. The
threat of infection, although rare, increases during
hot summer months.
The infection occurs when the amoeba enters
the body through the nose and travels to the brain
and spinal cord while the person is swimming un-
derwater or diving. The public should be aware that
they can minimize their risk of illness by avoiding

Why Coaches "Do" Hospital And County


Coach Their Need To Look At
Coach... TheiIir..i ...


Own Children


coached baseball in this
county for six years, and
I am regretfully a tobac-
co user. My players
know it and my parents
know it. But, I constant-
ly explain to my players
that I am not a positive
example in this regard.
It is a nasty habit that I
wish, and I am sure our
12U softball girls' coach-
es wish they did not
have. Enough said.
Players make errors
as do coaches. This has
nothing to do with a
coach/daughter rela-
tionship. Both softball
and baseball players will
fail more than they suc-
ceed. Note, a .300 bat-
ting average is
considered successful,
yet on a Math test a 30
score would be consid-
ered a failure. Coaches,
whether they are coach-
ing their child or not,
are judged by us
fans/parents based on
their success, and
whether or not our child
is playing, where they're
playing, and how much
they're playing. This is
wrong, as the decision of
who, where, and how
much a child plays is the
coaches. Parents, not
coaches, are generally
the ones too involved in
the game specifically


We are all proud of
our 12U MADISON
COUNTY girls for their
energy and commitment
when it comes to soft-
ball. Personally I am
also proud of our coach-
es as are the Madison
County Babe Ruth
Board members that I
have spoken with. The
coach/coaches dis-
cussed in a previously
published article are
very dedicated to our
county baseball/softball
programs and the 12U
girls currently in Vir-
ginia playing for a re-
gional championship.
They prove their dedica-
tion to our children,
league, and community
year after year; volun-
teering their time to
coach and/or serve on
the Babe Ruth Board.
They have spent count-
less hours studying the
game, coaching, raising
funds, and helping man-
age a $50,000 a year, 360
player program: "for
free". Should they use
tobacco products
around the players?
No... Should we as fans
support the use of tobac-
co around our children?
No... Should we as fans
discuss this with the
coaches if it is a prob-
lem? Yes. I have


when it comes to their
child to be objective, not
the coach. Coaches
practice with the play-
ers; therefore, they are
generally the most ob-
jective.
Each year the league
looks, and unfortunately
even has to beg for
coaches in both softball
and baseball, and gener-
ally the ones to come for-
ward are parents. Then
these parents are judged
by those who don't agree
with their decisions.
The league looses coach-
es every year because of
these outside pressures,
ridicule, and com-
plaints, but financially
the league has no other
alternative.
In the past, my son
has played baseball for
many coaches. And,
some have played him in
fielding positions that I
didn't necessarily agree;
however, I feel like it was
the coach's decision
which as a fan I should
respect. I say if you're
not involved, get in-
volved in a positive man-
ner. Support the coaches
and your child.

surgical procedures and test HAVE to
be done at a free standing clinic. If
not, then we have to pay up front first
and that money will go towards our de-
ductible. Instead of a "New Hospital"
what Madison County really needs is a
separate Critical Care Clinic, and a
free standing Testing and Surgical
Center. This way, EVERYONE will be
able to utilize both facilities. As it
stands now, most of us will still "be
forced to endure the inconvenience
and discomfort of traveling outside
the county for medical service."
Something to seriously think about in
our economy
Thank You,

Dear Editor,
I read with great interest about
the specialist coming to Madison
County, and how we "won't be forced
to endure the inconvenience and dis-
comfort of traveling outside the coun-
ty for medical service." However, for
those of us with county insurance or
participate in any insurance program,
this doesn't help us out in any way. It
would be nice of the BOCC and the
MCMH Board would really LOOK at
the insurance policies. According to
our policies, we can not have any test,
surgical procedures, X-rays, CT scans,
breast exams or even a blood test with-
in a hospital without having to pay to-
wards a $2,500.00 deductible first. ALL

(Editor's Note:
"Stray Vectors" is the
author's byline for ran-
dom thoughts.)
There is an old say-
ing that goes like this:
"If you're not keeping
score, then you're only
practicing." I agree and
that's why I'm a big sup-
porter of FCAT, the
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test. We
have educational stan-
dards for public schools
and FCAT enables us to
objectively rate how well
our schools are accom-
plishing their mission of
educating our young
people.
Much has been
made about the govern-
ment stimulating the
economy, but deficits de-
flate the economy The
projected federal deficit
this year is $1.75 trillion
in red ink.
"Never underesti-
mate the power of stu-
pid people in large
groups." Until I ran
across this quote, I nev-
er equated the global
warming crowd to an
old-fashion lynch mob.
Health care reform
is the buzz word now in
Washington. Obama
says that we need re-
form to reign in health
care costs. But the Con-
gressional Budget Office
says that the reform pro-
posal will not only fail to
reduce costs, but add a
bunch more to the
deficit. Looks like an-
other episode of the po-
litical shell game now
you see it; now you
don't.
I'm trying to figure
out what role Al
Franken plays now that
he is a senator. I know -
he can write jokes for
Harry Reid. The Senate
has been humorless
since Joe Biden left.
Tallahassee's James
Madison Institute tells
us that the problem gov-
ernment gets into is dur-
ing good times, not bad,
when they overspend on
programs that are un-
sustainable during in-
evitable economic
downturns. You see,
when receipts exceed ex-
penditures, members of
the political class want
to spend more money
rather than return sur-
pluses to the people who
earned it.
The unemployment


rate is expected to end
2009 above the current
level of 9.5 percent.
That's pretty bad. The
good news for Obama is
that this is the first year
of his presidency
Warning to liberal-
ly-governed states like
California, Illinois and
New York who think
they can solve their
state's deficits by soak-
ing the rich: the rich
will leave and move to
low tax states like Ten-
nessee, Texas and Flori-
da. I call it "tax flight."
A key reason why
thirty years of the Mid-
dle East peace process
has resulted in repeated
failure is that there has
never been any coherent
leadership on the part of
the Palestinians. It's
like trying to herd a
bunch of stray cats on a
flatbed.
The president re-
cently signed a credit
card reform bill that ...
missed the point, which
is the high interest rate
that the credit card
companies charge. It is
called usury and is as
old as the hills. I guess
those "special inter-
ests" have paid off
enough of those "pro-
fessional politicians" to
think that anything
substantive will be
done to protect the
American consumer.
Israel understands
that by allowing Pales-
tinians into their na-
tion, they will be
importing economic
problems and violence,
so they are sealing
their borders. They are
accomplishing what we
don't have the guts to
do with our southern
Mexican border.
When it comes to
energy matters, have
you noticed that the en-
vironmental left always
precedes the noun
"coal" with the adjec-
tive "dirty?" No bias
here. Right!
One of the criti-
cisms leveled at Repub-
licans is that they


aren't bi-partisan. I
don't know. Recently
when the Democrat
president said he
wouldn't release photos
of so-called detainee
abuse and would use
military commissions
to try some of the al-
Qaeda prisoners, about
the only support he got
from Congress came
from Republicans.
While we're on the
subject of bipartisan-
ship, would someone
please explain how a
219-212 vote on Cap &
Trade that sets limits
on carbon emissions
for the next forty years
is bipartisan?
Do politicians lie to
us? Yes. Do they do
this routinely? No. Do
they quibble by telling
us half-truths? Every-
day.
That $787 billion
stimulus package isn't
working because it was
designed for political,
not economic expedien-
cy. The first Obama
budget predicted an 8
percent unemployment
rate. We're at 9.5 per-
cent and climbing.
Don't be misled by
politicians that brag
about all the jobs they
have created or saved.
It's a bunch of hooey.
Focus instead on the
unemployment rate if
the rate is increasing,
the public policies
aren't working bottom
line.
The Democrat lead-
ers in Congress are try-
ing to "fast rack"
reform legislation on
the environment and
health care by limiting
debate, scheduling late
votes, and not allowing
members time to read
and analyze the bills.
This legislation will
govern our behavior for
at least fifty years. This
is outrageous.
The late Congress-
man Tom Moorehead
once said, "The law of
physics stops at the
doors of Congress. Ain't
that the truth!

LOCAL & REGIONAL CRIME BLOTTER


Madison County

CRIME BEAT
ALL SUSPECTS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED
INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY IN A
COURT OF LAW


Convicted


Felon Arrested


For Firearms


Possession
Madison County
Sheriff Ben Stewart re-
ports that on Tuesday
night July 14 at 8:18 p.m., ll
Madison County depu-
ties responded to the
Texaco Station located atr '
3907 South SR 14 in
Madison, concerning the
clerk fearing a potential
robbery. The fear was
based on several subjects Carl Frank Brown
entering the store and
acting suspicious. The clerk further observed one of
the subjects with a handgun concealed in the small
of his back under his shirt.
Upon arrival, deputies located five subjects
standing outside the Texaco and an Officer Safety
"pat-down" search was conducted. The weapon was
discovered on Carl Frank Brown, 57, of Malone.
An investigation further revealed that Brown
was also a convicted felon. Brown was arrested and
charged with possession of concealed firearm by
convicted felon and transported to the Madison
County Jail without further incident. The remain-
ing subjects were identified to be from the areas of
Malone and Tampa. They were questioned and re-
leased without further incident.

The band also plays a major role in the lives of
the high school students, giving them something
positive to be a part of. The young men and women
participate in band camp during the summer before
school starts, and performs for the community dur-
ing half time at football games, parades, evening
concerts and social events.
Support the youth of Madison County by sup-
porting the Madison County High School Band pro-

Tax Free

cont from Page 1A
it is tax-free.
Plan ahead. Big items such as computers will be
hundreds of dollars cheaper because of the sales tax
knocked off. Look ahead and find what you need and
can afford.
The current sales tax rate in Valdosta, Ga. is sev-
en cents to each dollar. The government requires
four percent, and Lowndes County requires three
percent of each taxable item. In order for a state to
have a sales tax exemption holiday, the bill must be
voted on and passed by the senate and signed by the
governor.
The bill was agreed upon in Georgia on April 1,
when it passed in the senate. On April 13, the bill
was sent to the governor and was signed on May 4. It
became effective on May 4.
Get ready and get set to save.

concerned citizens campaign to bring better safety
to the city provided a brief summary of a recent
workshop conducted by Chief Rick Davis and Sher-
iff Ben Stewart regarding the establishment of a
Neighborhood Watch program. The commissioners
were urged to take a more active role in the process,
especially in those districts that were comparatively
under represented at the workshop. Each agreed the
cause merited the full cooperation and participation
of citizens, officials, law enforcement and the media.
Skip James, director of public safety at North
Florida Community College also addressed the com-
mission regarding collaboration for a grant to ob-
tain fire and rescue vehicles to be used in their
expanding public safety courses, namely firefighting
and emergency medical services. He suggested ap-
plying for the grants in the name of the city, which
would also utilize the vehicles since they would have
a lot of down time between coursework. All agreed
it was a timely win-win, involving no funding from
the city whatsoever.

Death

cont from Page 1A
swimming or jumping into bodies of freshwater when
the water is warm and the water levels are low. The
chances of becoming infected rise as temperatures rise.
People should seek immediate medical attention if
experiencing the following symptoms after swimming
in freshwater:
Headache
Fever
Nausea
Vomiting
Stiff neck
Generally, if not diagnosed within 48 hours, the
amoebas invade the brain and death usually occurs
within a week to 10 days. This infection cannot be
spread from person to person or contracted from a prop-
erly maintained swimming pool.
The following precautions are advised to decrease
the possibility of infection:
1. Avoid swimming in unapproved bathing places,
especially lakes and ponds when the water is warm,
poorly maintained swimming pools, storm water hold-
ing areas or in places that are posted "No Swimming
Areas"
2. Hold the nose shut or use nose clips when taking
part in water-related activities in bodies of warm fresh-
water such as lakes, rivers, or hot springs.
3. Avoid digging in or stirring up the sediment
while taking part in water-related activities in shallow,
warm freshwater areas.

partment at 850-973-5000.

chills and fatigue. A significant number of people
who have been infected with this virus also have re-
ported diarrhea and vomiting. Also, like seasonal
flu, severe illnesses and death has occurred as a re-
sult of illness associated with this virus.
Spread of novel H1N1 virus is thought to be hap-
pening in the same way that seasonal flu spreads. Flu
viruses are spread mainly from person to person
through coughing or sneezing by people with in-
fluenza. Sometimes people may become infected by
touching something with flu viruses on it and then
touching their mouth or nose.
As soon as test results are released, they will be

SAL VATION ARMY V'-TEA EACl lHING BIBLE SCHOOL


George and Gail
Blevins of Sirmans have
brought the Salvation
Army V-team to Madi-
son. The team, which is
led by Kristen Tompkins
of Tampa, helped teach
Vacation Bible School in
Greenville the week of
July 13-17.
The VBS began with
a supper each afternoon
served by volunteers
from the community at
5:30 p.m.
At 6:30 p.m., the V-
Team (so called because
they teach Vacation Bible
School) began their in-
struction, using creative
ways to get the Gospel of
Jesus Christ across. The
team was first born out of
the need some churches
have because they don't
have a big enough staff to
teach VBS. Since Madi-
son County doesn't have
that problem, George and
Gail Blevins decided to
do the outreach in the
Greenville community
George Blevins said
that he believes getting
the Salvation Army to
come to the county is
part of the vision that
God has shown them. \
"It's part of our call-

On Friday, July
17, the team members
were enjoying being
taught to ride on horse-
back by J.L. and Jo
Williams of Madison.
"We wanted to give
the team a treat,"
George said, "and we de-
cided on horseback
lessons. Our founder
used to deliver The War
Cry (the Salvation
Army's publication) on
horseback. Maybe next
year, the team will be
able to deliver the maga-
zines to people on horse-

George said that
next year, he and the Sal-

about doing a six-week
program.
"It's all worked
out so wonderfully this
year," he said.

On Wednesday, September 23, at 10:30
a.m., the doors of the childhood home of
Ray Charles will be swung open for the
first time, and citizens of Madison Coun-
ty will be given a tour of the home dur-
ing the dedication of the house.
Ray Charles was born on September


23, 1930, and spent his youth in
Greenville. Later in life, Charles became
known as one of the world's greatest mu-
sic jazz legends. The goal of the town of
Lee is to honor this legend by dedicating
the house on his birthday, and making it
a commemorative event for the county. A
grant provided by the Florida Bureau of
Historic Preservation made the restora-


tion of the house possible, and a historic
marker will be placed in front of the
house.
The committee will be meeting on
July 30, at 5 p.m., to finalize plans to
make this a memorable event for
Greenville and Madison County.
The house is located at 434 SW Ray
Charles Ave., in Greenville.

An invitation to a wedding is generally consid-
ered good news, but the expenses associated with at-
tending one--especially an out-of-town event--may
present more than a few financial challenges.
Fortunately, there are ways to save on your ex-
penses as a wedding guest or member of the bridal
party Here are a few tips for travelers to avoid wed-
ding guest debt:
Do your homework when it comes to travel
arrangements. If you have to fly, book as far in ad-
vance as you can to take advantage of discounted
rates, which can be found by visiting a Web site that
compares prices. Keep in mind that you may be able

(850) 877-4259

Call or visit our website
www.lucchiniphoto.com


to get cheaper rates if you are prepared to fly early
in the morning or late at night.
When deciding whether or not to rent a car,
first crunch the numbers and consider all the ex-
penses involved in getting around while you are
there.
In some cases, it may actually save money to
rent a car for a couple of days, especially if you have
other guests to share expenses with. But in other sit-
uations, you may save by taking public transporta-
tion to and from the airport.
Explain your situation to the bride and groom.
If you are a bridesmaid, for example, you may be
able to persuade the bride to choose an inexpensive
option for bridesmaid's dresses, preferably a dress
that can be worn more than once. Or perhaps the
bride can help you find an inexpensive place to stay,
or suggest other guests you might be able to share a
room or transportation with.
Save on food expenses. Some accommodations
offer a coffeepot and a microwave for heating up
food--or better yet, a free breakfast buffet.
Gift wisely You don't want to scrimp on a wed-
ding gift, but your friends will understand if you
don't go overboard. Find out where they are regis-


tered and shop from their registry, which should of-
fer a range of prices. Purchase a more inexpensive
gift or split a larger wedding gift with a friend.
Another option is to offer helping out with the
wedding if you have any special skills or talents the
happy couple might like to use. If you're a photogra-
pher, for example, you may want to donate your
skills to take the wedding photos. If you are a cater-
er, you may want to donate some of the wedding day
food.
Being practical about planning can help keep
your friend's special day from leaving a lasting dent
in your wallet.

HEALTH & NUTRITION


Only Two Out Of A Hundred Make It


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
There are a lot of ways to use and abuse statistics. At
times, however, they are the most effective way to illus-
trate a point. They may not change actions or attitudes,
but, again, they can definitely make a point. One of these
hard-hitting statistics is associated with cigarette smok-
ing.
Research from a number of well-documented, inde-
pendent surveys, conducted over millions of samples,
shows that only two out of every one hundred smokers
who try to quit are still tobacco free after one year. This
alarming number which doesn't include New Year's
resolutions, instead only "real" efforts illustrates what


Question: What do you know about Health
Insurance reform?
Answer: I have GREAT NEWS about Health
Insurance & Dental Insurance! I received a letter
from Aundra Bryant of Governor Charlie Crist's
office. Governor Crist has signed into law a
landmark Health Access to Care bill. Senate Bill
1122 will enable patients with restricted preferred
provider networks to receive insurance benefits
regardless of the physician (Health ins) or dentist
(Dental ins) that they go to see. Governor Crist's
statement..."I am pleased that this legislation
removes a health care access barrier..." No
longer will insurance benefits be denied to
patients who seek treatment outside of their
provider network. Patients can continue with the
preferred provider network or they can see an
Out-of-network practitioner. The insurance
payments will be the same in the network or
outside the network and the payments can be
paid directly to the practitioner so you do not
have the up front out of pocket expense.
For more information search for SB 1122 at
www.myflorida.com. You can read the specific
language of the bill. In case you are wondering,
this law was in effect July 1, 2009.

was July 10,2008," Karla Hanners explains.
"That was a year ago, and even though we have ex-
perienced cravings, we were prepared and got through.
Preston was an incredible instructor and armed us with
all the right information and support," she added.

and discomfort of cigarette smoke. Their other daughter,

ted the Quit Smoking Now program in Madison County.
Felicia McCrary was extremely proud ot her parents ac-
complishments as well, and very appreciative that her
son, Haeden, now has healthier, happier grandparents.
The fortunate few who do quit tobacco will testify
to the extreme health and financial benefits of quitting,
as much as those who can't will express their extreme
frustration at not being able to quit. Preston Mathews is

Transitioning Back


To School Without


Overloading Your Child


We can all remem-
ber the excitement,
anxiety and enhanced
level of activity that
take place as a new
school year begins.
This time of year
brings increased ex-
pectations as well as
new routines, new
friends, a new teacher
and possibly a new
school.
Simultaneously,
families review the
type and number of ac-
tivities in which they
want to enroll their
children. While re-
search studies recog-
nize the benefits of
extracurricular activi-
ties, juggling these
changes can be over-
whelming to even the
most well-adjusted
child.
"It is important to
consider your child's
interests and ability to
adjust when planning
activities," says Janeal
Roberts, Vice Presi-
dent of Education for
Champions, a nation-
wide provider of be-
fore- and after-school
programs. "Being
aware of your child's
needs and preparing
for this transition can
be the key to a success-
ful and fun school
year."
Roberts offers the
following tips to help
parents schedule chil-
dren for success:
Look at each child


as an individual. All
children are different
and have different tal-
ents and varying abili-
ties to manage their
time and handle
change. Be sure to take
this into considera-
tion, especially if your
family has more than
one child.
Establish expecta-
tions and priorities
with your child. Ask
yourself "what is most
important to me?" and
"what do I want for my
child?" Be sure to in-
volve your children
and consider their in-
put in your decision.
Your family's schedule
should reflect these
goals. Revisit these pri-
orities with your chil-
dren regularly, engage
them in discussions,
celebrate successes
and review challenges
and lessons learned.
Wait before you
commit or overextend
your child. Look for ex-
tracurricular activi-
ties that can be added
after school schedules
are established. Wait-
ing 30 days to add a
new activity after the
school year begins can
give you and your child
the time needed to set-
tle into a routine.
Streamline and
organize activities. It's
not the additional one
to two hours a week of
soccer or dance that
causes stress or frus-


tration, but the added
time and rush to get
from place to place.
Look for centralized af-
ter-school programs
that provide multiple
activities on-site to re-
duce running from
place to place.
Establish family
routines and traditions
early. Make a calendar
that clearly lists meal-
times, bedtime, home-
work, chores, activities
and other important
family commitments
that your child is ex-
pected to attend. Re-
view and reinforce the
schedule with your
children to help estab-
lish routines.
Plan for down-
time, don't wait for it.
There is a lot to be
gained from unstruc-
tured activities. Re-
serve downtime so that
your child can accept
an unexpected invita-
tion, be spontaneous
and appreciate the
times when "there is
nothing to do."
Working together
with your child to find
the schedule that
works for your family
will ensure a comfort-
able balance and teach
children to understand
their own tolerance.
Discussing these chal-
lenges will help as
your children transi-
tion into middle school
and their teenage
years.

Registration is now open for the
AARP Driver Safety Training Classes
scheduled for Sept. 12 at the Madison
County Extension Office, which is located
adjacent to the North Florida Community
College campus just off US 90. Organizers
are requesting that all interested drivers
register early as space may be limited.
The class will include:
Safe driving tips
Good driving practices
Avoiding crashes
Changes in Florida Laws
Possible insurance discounts
People can be great drivers or bad dri-
vers at any age. Generally young, new dri-
vers tend to have the worst driving
records. Experienced, middle-aged drivers
are likely to have the best driving records.
Overall, older drivers are safe and make
appropriate adjustments for their abilities
and limitations. In fact, the total number of
accidents that involve older drivers is low-
er than for any other age group. However,
the number of accidents per mile driven


goes up around age 60, and
gets much higher after 75.
Additionally many old-
er adults take certain medi-
cines and have conditions
that increase the risk of
unsafe driving. Some con-
ditions that might be a fac-
tor in unsafe driving
include: Alzheimer's dis-
ease, vision problems,
stroke, Parkinson's disease,
arthritis, and diabetes.
AARP understands these
challenges and offers this
course in the hopes of pro-
longing safe driving for all
Americans.
The AARP Driver
Safety Program is the na-
tion's first and largest re-
fresher course for drivers
age 50 and older that has
helped millions of drivers
remain safe on today's
roads. AARP has offered
the course in the classroom


for 25 years and now offers the same
course online as well.
Additional key points covered in the
class include:
Maintaining proper following dis-
tance at all times,
The safest way to change lanes and
make turns at intersections,
The effects of medications on driving
Minimizing the effect of dangerous
blind spots
Limiting driver distractions such as
eating, smoking and cell phone use
Properly using safety belts, air bags,
and anti-lock brakes
Maintaining physical flexibility
Continuing to monitor your own and
others' driving skills and capabilities.
AARP membership is not required to
take the course, and there is no final test to
pass. A Certificate of Attendance will be
issued at the completion of the course,
which may be provided to insurers for ap-
plicable discounts. The attendance fee is
only $12.00. In Madison County contact
Rich Olsen at (850) 843-0092 for registration
and more information.

New Credit Card Law
The new credit card reform law signed by Presi-


Lenders have started monitoring the spending dent Barack Obama in May includes a provision re-
behavior of credit card holders and it's ap-
parent that certain purchases cost more
than expected. Now, what one buys and
where he or she shops may also affect credit
scores.
As credit card companies continue to
tighten their lending standards on card
users, some are using purchasing data -
gleaned from millions of card transactions
processed daily to weed out who may or
may not be good credit risks. For instance,
credit card use at merchants specializing in
secondhand clothing, retread tires, bail bond
services, massages, casino gambling or bet-
ting can have a negative effect.
The bottom line: credit card issuers are
taking note and making decisions about
creditworthiness based on purchasing be- /
havior. The used clothing or retread tires
purchases given may be an indication of fi-
nancial distress and a preamble to missed
credit card payments or defaults.
Congress and federal regulators are
looking into this practice, probing the extent
to which credit card issuers have used infor-


mation about where a person shops or what
they buy as reasons to lower credit limits or
increase interest rates. When credit limits are low-
ered, it can adversely affect utilization ratios, which
measure how much of cardholders' credit limits are
used. Lowering credit limits increases the utiliza-
tion ratio and can lead to lower credit scores.


quiring federal regulators to investigate whether
credit card issuers used information about where
consumers shopped, what they purchased, the types
of merchants they shopped with and their locations,
and the mortgage company they borrowed from as

Rethinking Retirement
You did everything right. You planned
for your retirement by properly
diversifying your investment portfolio,
and even scrimped in order to
maximize contributions to your
retirement plans. However, after a
year of some of the biggest stock losses
since the Great Depression, you might
be wondering whether your shrunken
nest egg will be enough to carry you
through retirement. Before drawing
any premature conclusions, it's
important that you first take charge of
your situation by asking and answering
these four critical questions.
Where do I currently stand?
Take inventory of where your
retirement accounts are held and how
they're invested. These would include
IRA's, employer sponsored accounts
(401k's, etc.) and other accounts
earmarked for retirement. Although it
might be discomforting, gather up your
latest statements from these accounts
and total how much they're worth.
The losses may seem astonishing but
do not let that discourage you.

"Where a person shops, in my opinion, has little
bearing on whether they can pay
back a credit card balance," one rep-
resentative said during a hearing on
credit card reform conducted by the
U.S. House Financial Services Com-
V mittee. "I want this study done be-
46 cause I want to stop some of these
outrageous practices in the future."
The Federal Reserve, the Federal
Trade Commission and other bank-
ing regulators must report to the U.S.
House and Senate financial-services
and banking committees, respective-
ly, detailing whether card issuers en-
gaged in the practice between May
22, 2006, and May 22, 2009.
Regulators must also determine
whether the profiling negatively af-
fected minority and low-income card
users.
Is it redlining?
Limiting credit based on where a
person shops or the neighborhood
they live in could amount to redlin-
ing, the practice of targeting certain
areas or neighborhoods for discrimi-
natory housing, insurance or lending
treatment. With credit card transactions, every time
one makes a purchase, a record of that sale is logged
into a database of information collected by the cred-
it card issuer. Privacy experts warn that consumers
should be mindful of what they buy with plastic and
what purchasing data credit card issuers may be an-
alyzing.

Have Your Parents Made Their
Financial Plans?

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones


As an adult, you're fortunate if you still have your parents.
However, as they get older, you may well have to assist
them in some key areas of their life. Specifically, they may
need you to get involved in some of their financial issues.
And if you do, you may need to focus on two areas: leav-
ing a legacy and managing finances during retirement.

While initiating these conversations may not be easy for
you, it is important, and you may find your parents more
willing to discuss these issues than you had thought. In
any case, if your parents haven't already done so, encour-
age them to work with an estate-planning professional to
develop the necessary legal documents, which may
include wills, trusts and financial durable powers of attor-
ney. These documents and services can be invaluable in
helping individuals find efficient ways to pass assets from
one generation to the next. An estate-planning attorney
can identify which arrangements are the most appropriate
for you and your family.

In your discussions on leaving a legacy, you may also
want to bring up the topic of the beneficiary designations
that may appear on your parents' life insurance contracts
and qualified plans, such as 401 (k)s and IRAs. If the fam-
ily picture has changed in recent years, and your parents
had intended to change these designations, they should
take action sooner rather than later.

While your parents need to deal with the legacy issue,
they still may have plenty of years of living ahead of them
and they might need help managing their money dur-
ing these years. For starters, you may want to have a dis-
cussion about their savings, investments, insurance and
so on, and where these assets are held. Are they kept in
banks or investment companies? Do your parents have
safe-deposit boxes? This knowledge could be valuable if
you ever become involved in managing or distributing
your parents' resources.

Also, you might want to talk to your parents about the
income sources they may be drawing from during their
retirement. For example, how much are they taking out
each year from their 401 (k)s and IRAs? They don't want
to withdraw so much that they deplete their accounts too
soon, but at the same time, they would no doubt like to
maintain their standard of living in retirement. You may
want to suggest to your parents that they evaluate their
investment portfolio for both growth and income potential
because they will need both elements during a long
retirement.

If your parents aren't already working with a financial
advisor, you may want to encourage them to do so.
Managing an investment portfolio during retirement is no
easier than doing so during one's working years and
there's less time to overcome mistakes. A qualified finan-
cial advisor can help your parents choose the right mix of
investments that can help meet their needs.

During the course of your lifetime, your parents have done
a lot for you. You can help pay them back by doing what-
ever you can to assist them in managing their financial
strategy.
