Madison Commissioners Set To Name


Code Enforcement Board


By Ginger Jarvis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Has your neighbor's yard turned into a hay-
field? Does a family on the next block keep three
junk cars in their front yard? Has a couple moved
away and allowed their to fall into ruin? Coming
very soon a way to address those problems
through a new ordinance approved by the Madison
city commissioners.
At their regular meeting on August 11, the com.
missioners not only passed the code enforcement
ordinance on its second public reading; they also
established the process for naming members to a
code enforcement board. (The ordinance stipulates
a five-member board separate from the elected com-
missioners.) After some discussion, City Manager ,.
Harold Emrich suggested that each commission-
er choose a member from his district.
The board adopted that plan and further de-
cided to generate public notice of what the job k
will entail. Those tasks will include respond-
ing to complaints, assessing situations as re- .
lated to city codes, levying fines for "
non-compliance, and fulfilling other duties. pi
Madison residents who wish to serve may
serve may contact their commissioners. Com-


missioner Myra Valentine said, "We already have
one list of people who have volunteered to serve in
the city"
Jim Sale asked, "If we want to change this lat-
er, can we do that?"
Mayor Jim Staney explained that citizens may
request changes through the ordinance process
that the city uses.
City Attorney Bailey


Browning offered a cautionary word. He said, "If
you are going to do this, stick up for your board."
The commissioners will serve as the appeals board
if residents are unsatisfied with the decision of the
Code Enforcement Board.
In other business, the commissioners returned
to the long-standing discussion of sidewalk repair.
Emrich explained that the new proposed budget in-
clude $75,000 specifically for sidewalk repair. "This
is the most we have ever budgeted for that. If you
approve the budget, then we can get to work."
Commissioners Judy Townsend and Sumpter
James asked where the repairs would begin. Em-
rich replied, "If you approve the budget, then you
can set the priorities for the sidewalk replace-
ment.."
In his official report, Emrich reported that
work would soon begin on removing dilapidated
homes. "We must finish identifying the homes.
Then we will present the list to you and begin tak-
ing bids." He also said that federal stimulus
funds may make possible a repair of the sewage
lift station on Martin Luther King Drive.
The commissioners will hold a budget
workshop on Tuesday, August 25, at 5:30 p.m. at
city hall.

"The Proverbs 31
Woman"
Annie Lee Richardson-Haynes
September 5, 1933-August 18, 2004

The heart of her husband did safely trust her,
so he had no need to worry. She did good and no evil
toward (Eddie). She worked willingly with her
hands. She trained up her children and grandchil-
dren, (in the knowledge of God), and even when
they strayed, Mother knew in heart that they would
not depart. She would rise up early in the morning
and went to bed late to meet the needs of the family
She looked well to the ways of our household, and
did not eat the bread of idleness. The needs of the
family were always a priority for her. Her hands
were always stretched out to give materially and
spiritually She was always a giver of her time and
resources. Her husband was known in the gates,
when he sat among the elders of the land. Strength
and honor were her clothing. She opened her
mouth with wisdom; and her tongue was the law of
kindness. Her children and grandchildren stood up
and called her blessed and her husband also praised
her. The Word says "whatever you find your hands
to do...do it."
That was Mother.......thank you God for giving
us ....."The Proverbs 31 Woman."

Something Stinks in Lee


If you've never had to decide
whether to pay a utility bill or fill
your child's allergy prescription
or pay a utility bill or buy gro-
ceries, you probably shouldn't
bother reading this.
If you're ok with allowing our
city, state and federal govern-
ments deciding how you are going
to spend your money each month,
you probably shouldn't bother
reading this. If you don't mind
our elected officials making deci-
sions for you that could ultimately
take every penny you have in a
savings account or put you at the
mercy of a lending institution
begging to borrow money without
consulting you, you probably
shouldn't bother reading this.
I originate from a small rural
town in West Virginia about the
size of Madison. The local elected
officials decided if they had a pub-
lic water and sewer system in
their town they could attract busi-
nesses and stimulate economic
growth. Their water and sewer
projects were predominately fund-
ed with state and federal grants
because of the low median income
in the town. Because of that, the
monthly water and sewer bills
were going to be extremely low. A
deal they just couldn't pass by
Something for nothing. The.bids
were let out, the price tag was
higher than originally planned,
not to worry, only a couple of dol-
lars higher per month than origi-
nally planned for the residents.
The City looked like a war zone
for about 6 months and some of
those old Maple trees that had
stood for years were no longer
there, but, it was good for econom-
ic growth. The average water and
sewer bill for my small 3 bedroom,
1 bath house for me and my 2 chil-
dren was $85.00 to $125.00 per
month. There were no water
hoses to be found at my house and
no plants to be watered. One
morning in a rush to get to work


and school, a commode was
flushed and left to run the entire
day. A couple of weeks later I
made that normal walk to the
mail box only to drop to my knees
when I realized I had a water and
sewer bill over $300.00 for that
month. One day, one commode. To
this day, you can see my knee
prints in the concrete sidewalk
where I dropped.
What happened to that $30.00
to $50.00 per month we were
promised? The businesses in that
small town were barely making
ends meet, so they closed their
doors. That drove residential bills
higher because the City still had
to make that payment each month
on the loans. More people left
town, the bills went higher. More
businesses closed, the bills went
higher. The residents were at the
City's mercy if they said the rates
were going up. you had 2 options,
pay or leave.
Now, I understand the City of
Lee is all but ready to sign a con-
tract for a new system. This is go-
ing to have a direct financial
impact on everyone in the city as
well as those surrounding resi-
dents that are presently on the city
water. What happened to public
hearings? What happened to get-
ting the opinions of the majority
of the citizens? Weren't the Coun-
cil and Mayor elected and or ap-
pointed to keep the best interests
at heart for the Citizens of Lee? If
you ask 3 different council mem-
bers a specific question, you'll get
3 different answers. I don't blame
the council members or the Mayor
for this; I don't think they are be-
ing provided all the pertinent in-
formation to make informed
decisions. Someone needs to slow
this train wreck down. I'm not
against improving the water qual-
ity and making environmental im-
provements to our community.
That is vitally important for our
children and grandchildren, but, if


you can't afford to drive a Lexus,
shouldn't you shop around for a
more economical means of trans-
portation?
There will be other grants,
don't jump before we look at
what's on the other side. Can every
citizen in the Lee area afford a
$40.00 to $50.00 per month water
and sewer bill? We have been told
60% of the citizens will qualify for
a CDBG Grant to close/destroy
their existing systems. Can the re-
maining 40% afford the $2,500 to
$5,000 it is going to cost to close
their existing system? Are those
percentages correct? There went
that savings account or there you
are at that lending institution beg-
ging for a loan. What's that pay-
ment going to be? Probably
between $56.00 to $112.00 per
month and that's being optimistic.
Don't forget it has already
been approved for our electric bills
to be increased 30% effective 1-1-
10. This 30% is going to affect the
cost to operate the waste treat-
ment facility plant in Madison.
Who do you think is going to ab-
sorb that? The sewer users, so we
are immediately looking at a rate
increase. Don't sit back and say it
is not going to affect me, if the line
goes by your house, whether in
the city limits or not, the Florida
Status say you will connect.
All we ask is for the Council,
Mayor, Town Manager, and Engi-
neers to be open and honest at the
September 1st meeting. Give us
the facts, no more "Well, we just
don't know for sure". I urge every
citizen in and or around the Town
of Lee to attend the town council
meeting on September 1st at 7:00
pm. We want to know, and deserve
to know, exactly who will be af-
fected and what this project is re-
ally going to cost?
Sincerely,
Charlotte Blackburn/Smith
on behalf of the Lee citizens with
cautious optimism


Nails In



The Fence
There once was a little boy who had a bad tem-
per. His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him
that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer
a nail into the back of the fence. The first day the
boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next
few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the
number of nails hammered daily gradually dwin-
dled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his
temper than to drive those nails into the fence.
Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose
his temper at all. He told his father about it and the
father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail
for each day that he was able to hold his temper.
The days passed and the young boy was finally
able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.
The father took his son by the hand and led him to
the fence. He said, 'You have done well, my son, but
look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be
the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a
scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man
and draw it out.
It won't matter how many times you say I'm sor-
ry, the wound is still there.' A verbal wound is as bad
as a physical one.
Friends are very rare jewels, indeed. Theymake
you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend
an ear, they share words of praiseand they always
want to open their hearts to us.

Did yot4



Know...


In 1913,

the Russian

Airline became

the first to intro-

duce a toilet on

board.


At a recent town-
hall meeting in Mis-
souri, a harried
Senator Claire Mc-
Caskill shouted at the
boisterous crowd
through her micro-
phone, "Don't you
trust me?" Her ques-
tion was greeted with
a chorus of "no" from
the crowd. It was a
very telling moment
which career-politi-
cian McCaskill proba-
bly still doesn't
understand.
The roots of our
republic are founded
in a fundamental dis-
trust of government.
From the very begin-
ning, the driving force
behind the United
States of America was
distrust of a strong
central government.
Go back and read
Thomas Jefferson's
brilliant draft of the
Declaration of Inde-
pendence crafted in
1776. The birth certifi-
cate of our nation lists
the many grievances
against a tyrannical
monarchy governing
from an ocean away.
The American
colonists, our forbear-
ers, revolted against
an out-of-touch gov-
ernment that had
reached too far. We re-
belled against being a
subject of the king in
favor of being a citizen
of the republic.
Eleven years and a
revolution later, 55 del-
egates gathered in
Philadelphia to ham-
mer out a more work-
able form of
government than the
failed Articles of Con-
federation. Led by the
brilliant James Madi-
son, they spent two
summer months work-
ing through one idea
after another. Their
core philosophy was
protection for the
states and the people
from an overbearing
central government.
Pay attention Mr. Oba-
ma.
The Constitutional
Convention of 1787
formed a triumvirate
government based on
power-sharing be-
tween the legislative,
executive, and judicial
branches. This was de-
signed to provide
"checks and balances"
against one form of
government ruling the
others.
In the Congress or
legislative branch,
they further diffused
power by establishing
a bicameral system of
two independent hous-
es. One (House of Rep-


resentatives) would be
elected to represent
the people while the
other (Senate) would
represent the states.
Later in 1913, the 17th
Amendment would call
for the popular elec-
tion of the senators. I
wish that this hadn't
happened and that sen-
ators were elected by
state legislatures as
the founders originally
intended. In such a
case, the interests of
the fifty states would
be much better pro-
tected than it is today.
The Constitutional
Convention had done
its job and provided a
framework to govern
the young nation, but
critics like Thomas
Jefferson, the ambas-
sador to France, ar-
gued that the rights of
individuals from an
overbearing govern-
ment were not protect-
ed. Jefferson leaned
on his young prot6eg
Madison and in the
first Congress, the
leading Virginia dele-
gate introduced the
twelve rights of man
from his home state.
This list was trimmed
to ten and became the
first amendments to
the Constitution that
we know as the Bill of
Rights.
The Bill of Rights
protects citizens from
abuse by their govern-
ment. A very popular
amendment in rural
areas is the second
which states that the
government cannot
take away the means of
the people to protect
themselves. The First
Amendment is all
about freedoms of reli-
gion, the press, speech,
and assembly so that
we can redress our
government when it
goes too far. These
popular townhall
meetings you've heard
so much about lately
are enshrined in the
first amendment free
speech and assembly.
The list goes on in-
cluding the right to
privacy and rights of
the accused. The
ninth amendment says
that this list is not all
inclusive suggesting
that rights not enu-
merated can be added
through the legislative


process. The kicker is
the tenth amendment
which simply states
that powers not enu-
merated in the Consti-
tution are reserved for
the jurisdiction of the
individual states. That
amendment has been
trampled over the past
three-quarters of a
century thanks to
Franklin Roosevelt
and the New Deal.
These are the
rights that Barack
Obama has referred to
as "negative rights."
He's right in this re-
spect the Bible is full
of "thou shalt not"
rules and in similar
manner, the Bill of
Rights specifically
puts the brakes on
what government can
do to the individual.
But Obama goes be-
yond that to say that
we need a second bill
of rights which iden-
tifies what the govern-
ment will do for its
citizens. That's un-
American.
The communica-
tion explosion means
that we the people can
do a much better job
of keeping track of
the politicians we
elect. Thanks to C-
Span, cable news,
Blackberries, talk ra-
dio and the internet,
we are much more in-
formed than in the
past. Politicians who
hold townhall meet-
ings are discovering a
more informed elec-
torate.
So I would answer
Senator McCaskill by
saying this: you're
darn right we don't
trust you. We don't
trust politicians who
rush $787 billion stim-
ulus packages laden
with pork through
Congress in the dead
of night. We don't
trust politicians who
pass landmark legisla-
tion like the Cap and
Trade Bill without de-
bate and without read-
ing it. We don't trust
politicians who sug-
gest that we can con-
trol the climate when
we know in our soul
and mind that isn't
possible. And we sure
as heck don't trust
you to put the govern-
ment in control of our
health care.

Eleven Members Of Internet

Drug Organization Sentenced


U.S. Attorney A.
Brian Albritton an-
nounces that U.S. Dis-
trict Judge David D.
Dowd today sentenced
Jude LaCour to 97
months in federal
prison for drug traffick-
ing and money launder-
ing. The court also
ordered Jude LaCour to
forfeit over $9,888,288.00
in assets, which are
traceable to proceeds of
the offense. As part of
his sentence, the court
also entered a money
judgment in the
amount of $9,888,288.00.
Also sentenced
were the following co-
defendants:
Christopher Tobin,
M.D., Akhil Baranwal,
M.D., James Pickens,
M.D., Geunnet Chebssi,
Jeffery LaCour, Hudsen
Smith, Alexis Roman
Torres, M.D., Andrew
DeSonia, D.O., Mar-
garet Fulmore a/k/a
McIntosh, M.D., Abel
Lau, M.D.
U.S. Attorney
Albritton stated, "The
successful prosecution
of the owner, operators,
doctors, and pharma-
cists involved in this
scheme sends a clear
message that unlawful
internet drug stores
will not be tolerated.
Drug dealers cannot
successfully hide be-
hind a computer be-
cause law enforcement
has the technology and
skill to find, investigate,
and prosecute those in-
volved."
According to court
documents and evi-
dence at trial, the defen-
dants were members of
an internet drug orga-
nization that distrib-
uted controlled
substances and other
prescription drugs to
customers located
across the United
States who did not have
prescriptions. Jude La-
Cour owned and operat-
ed Jive Network, Inc.,
an organization that
used the Internet to dis-
tribute and dispense
prescription drugs to
customers unlawfully.
Jeffrey LaCour served
as the Director of Oper-
ations at Jive Network
and Hudsen Smith was
the Director of Phar-
macy/Physician opera-
tions.
Jive Network sold
controlled substances,
mostly stimulants
(phentermine, Adipex-
P, lonamin, Meridia,
Tehuate) and depres-
sants (Valium, Xanax,
Diazpam, and Alprazo-
lam), using internet
websites and customer
service representatives
who were located at its
office in Daytona
Beach, Florida. Cus-
tomers, who had no pre-
scriptions, accessed the
websites and purchased
the controlled sub-


stances, including the
cost of shipping, with a
credit card or by money
order. The customers
also completed a short
health history ques-
tionnaire. Jive Network
did not verify the cus-
tomers' identities or
the information on the
questionnaire and did
not require the cus-
tomers to submit any
medical records during
the ordering process.
The LaCours and
Smith recruited doc-
tors located across the
United States, includ-
ing Tobin, Baranwal,
Roman Torres, DeSo-
nia, Fulmore, Lau, and
Pickens, to review
health questionnaire
answers and approve
customer orders for the
controlled substances
solely on the basis of
the answers. The doc-
tors had no face-to-face
contact with the cus-
tomers, did not verify
their identities, age or
any of the information
on the questionnaires,
did not conduct any
physical examinations
or testing, did not re-
view any medical
records before approv-
ing prescription drug
orders for the cus-
tomers, did not provide
any follow-up supervi-
sion and often were not
licensed in the states in
which the customers
resided. As proved at
trial, Jive Network doc-
tors approved and is-
sued drug orders, not in
the course of diagnos-
ing and treating med-
ical conditions, but to
facilitate the distribu-
tion of drugs pre-select-
ed by customers and for
the doctor's own per-
sonal profit. Jive Net-
work paid the doctors a
fee for each question-
naire they reviewed.


Jive Network doctors
unlawfully approved
and issued "prescrip-
tion" drug orders out-
side the usual course of
their professional prac-
tice and for no legiti-
mate medical purpose.
The "prescriptions"
they issued for Jive
Network customers
were invalid.
The LaCours and
Smith also recruited
pharmacists, including
Chebssi, to dispense
and ship the drugs to
the Internet customers.
Jive Network pharma-
cists filled the orders
and shipped the drugs
to the customers
throughout the United
States via Federal Ex-
press. Jive Network
pharmacists and their
pharmacies often were
not licensed in the
states to which they
shipped drugs. Jive
Network pharmacists
did not contact the cus-
tomers and rarely con-
tacted the Jive Network
doctors who approved
or purportedly ap-
proved the "prescrip-
tion" drug orders. The
organization distrib-
uted approximately 4.8
million dosage units of
Schedule III controlled


substances and approx-
imately 39.2 million
dosage units of Sched-
ule IV controlled sub-
stances to Internet
customers who had no
valid prescriptions.
During the three-year
conspiracy, Jive Net-
work received well over
500,000 customer orders
for controlled sub-
stances and illegally
generated revenue in
excess of $85 million.
In addition, the
United States proved at
trial that Jude LaCour
and Jeffrey LaCour
agreed to launder the
proceeds of the illegal
drug conspiracy, and
that they transferred
millions of dollars via
wire transfer and check
to their personal bro-
kerage or bank ac-
counts. The case was
investigated jointly by
the Federal Bureau of
Investigation, the Inter-
nal Revenue Service,
the Drug Enforcement
Administration, and
the Food and Drug Ad-
ministration and was
prosecuted by Assis-
tant United States At-
torney Karen L. Gable
and Assistant United
States Attorney Daniel
C. Irick.

During their weekly lunch meet-
ing held Thursday, August 13, at the
Extension Office, the Madison Kiwanis
Club viewed a presentation hosted by
two representatives from Mission San
Luis in Tallahassee. Lindsay Skelly
and Gabriela Reed wore early-Ameri-
can fashions and passed around arti-
facts, while showing an informative
PowerPoint presentation detailing the
restored village.
Located at 2100 West Tennessee
Street in Tallahassee, the 60-acre prop-
erty currently contains wonderful
restorations meticulously constructed
from findings over years of archeolog-
ical excavation. The attention to struc-
tural and cultural detail is exceptional,
garnering national recognition.
On their website,
www.missionsanluis.org, the settle-
ment's link to the Tallahassee region -
the Apalachee Province is explained.
"The Apalachee Indians were the
most advanced native peoples in Flori-
da. They were a centralized Mississip-


plan chiefdom with ex-
tensive agriculture cen-
tered around maize,
beans and squash; they
constructed ceremonial
centers with platform
mounds, plazas, and vil-
lages; they had highly
stratified social, politi-
cal, and religious organi-
zations; they
participated in extensive
exchange networks in-
cluding manufactured
symbolic items and raw
materials; and they
shared elements of a re-
gional belief system."
The speakers noted
that Spanish settle-
ments were expanding
throughout the region,
and that San Luis was
eventually set up as a
western capital due to
its geographic and re-
source advantages. The
website adds, "San Luis


is also remarkable because it repre-
sents the establishment of
Apalachee and Spanish capitals in
the same location and at the same
time. Thus the site has provided a
critical material baseline from which
to assess the conditions and practices
of life, the nature of cultural ex-
change, and the development of early
Hispanic-American culture and insti-
tutions from both Indian and Spanish
perspectives."
Today, the mission/museum is
opening a new state-of-the-art visi-
tor's center, as organizers look for-
ward to expanding both awareness
and traffic to the rich resource.
Additional business of the meet-
ing included introduction of the in-
coming Key Club Officers at Madison
County High School. Club President
Erica Bowen and Vice-President Vic-
tory Evans were introduced, along
with outgoing President Jarod An-
derson, who received kudos as he
heads to college in Miami.

Live


United


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
As the meeting room
at Shelby's Restaurant
filled up Wednesday
morning, August 12, for
the kick-off breakfast of
the 2009 fundraising
campaign for United
Way in Madison County,
a slogan emerged, "Live
United." Showcased on
poster boards, t-shirts,
and program literature,
it was evident that orga-
nizers weren't simply
expressing the senti-
ment of the slogan, how-
ever; they were living it.
Mary Carol Kaney
welcomed all to the gath-
ering, thanking and con-
gratulating the group for
their leadership, proud-
ly announcing she is the
official coordinator for
Madison County from
United Way of the Big
Bend, the official agency
for the campaign. Kaney
then introduced Willie
Gamalero, the campaign
chair for the upcoming
year.
Heather Mitchell
was also introduced. As
the V.P of Resource De-


velopment for UWBB,
she was excited at the
prospects for the upcom-
ing year, sharing the
sentiments of others
present who believe last
year's impressive total of
$117,148 can be eclipsed,
in spite of a tough econ-
omy. It was further noted
that employer/employee
participation is essen-
tial though, like the ex-
ample set by Nestle
Waters last year. In fact,
Deanna Samaha, who is
with human resources at
the company, was recog-
nized with a handsome
plaque for her 2008
fundraising leadership.
The honors included
recognition as "Most
Outstanding Neighbor-
ing County Award," and
"Most Outstanding Busi-
ness Campaign Coordi-
nator."
As many ask,
"Where is the money go-
ing?" the group received
a handout outlining the
allocation of last year's
funds, the process for
which Gamalero de-
scribed as an awesome
experience.


"The Allocation and
Investment Committee
met about three weeks
ago to determine where
the money would go.
Each agency requesting
funds came before the
board, and there were
definitely more requests
than funds. We worked it
out to help as many as
possible with as much as
we could," Gamalero
noted.
All the money raised
remained local, with
Madison County Senior
Citizens Center, Refuge
House, Consolidated
Christian Ministries
and Big Bend Hospice
among those organiza-
tions receiving funds. In
the end, almost twenty
agencies received the
much-needed, and
much-deserved, support.
Another handout il-
lustrated how small, af-
fordable weekly
donations really add up,
with as little as $2-$20
per pay period translat-
ing into a wide range of
essential services. In the
end, all agreed to
emphasize these pro-

grams, as well as devel-
oping the warm one-on-
one relationships that
have created the won-
derful reputation for
giving the United Way

enjoyed for years.

Gamalero thanked Shel-

breakfast, and con-
firmed the next meeting
for Tuesday, August 25,


at Madison County Com-
munity Bank at noon.

(NAPSI)-There's
good news, bad news and
better news when it
comes to health care
costs in America today
The good news, ac-
cording to AARP, is that
one of the best ways to
protect your health and
your wealth when you
take prescription med-
ication is simple and
practically free: Keep a
medications list or per-
sonal medication record.
This, studies have
shown, helps your doc-
tor, pharmacist and oth-
er health care
professionals protect
you from harmful over-
doses or interactions.
The bad news is the
high price of medicine
today means one in two
Americans say someone
in their family has
skipped pills or post-
poned or cut back on
needed medical care due
to the cost. Plus, each
year, 3.4 million Ameri-
cans with Medicare pre-
scription drug coverage
fall into the doughnut
hole-a gap in coverage in
which they have to pay
the full costs of their
drugs and their full
monthly premium.
The better news is
that AARP has devel-
oped a new resource to
show people in Medicare
Part D how to save on
drug costs by postpon-
ing or, in some cases,
avoiding the doughnut
hole. The tool can also
show you how to lower
your out-of-pocket drug
costs.
It's easy to use. Go to
www.aarp.org/doughnu
thole. Fill in your ZIP
code, click on your
health plan, list your
drugs. The calculator
will tell you how long
your coverage will last
before you hit the


doughnut hole. You'll
also get a list of less ex-
pensive medications,
and you can print a let-
ter-in English and in
Spanish-you can give to
your doctor for each
medication alternative
that may save you mon-
ey. All the information
you type in stays pri-
vate. In fact, it goes away
as soon as you exit the
calculator
In addition to creat-
ing the money-saving


calculator and as a part
of its Health Action
Now campaign, AARP is
calling on Congress to
close the doughnut hole
and lower prescription
drug prices so that no
one has to go without
the prescriptions they
need to stay healthy
To join in the fight
for more affordable
drugs for all Americans,

now.org or call (866)

an otherwise hot day. Food
vendors and a kid's game
or two nicely complement-
ed the entertainment.
The event actually be-
gan the evening prior with
a Youth Forum designed to
promote local youth to dis-
cuss topics important to
the future of themselves
and Madison County. Mod-
erated by Terrence McNeil,
a youth leader from Talla-
hassee, panelists and par-
ticipants from a wide vari-
ety of backgrounds provid-
ed insights and inspiration
for all in attendance. The
exchange included power-
ful poetry and personal tes-
timonies that captured the
challenges facing youth
throughout the region.
Excellence Dance Stu-
dio Executive Director
Sherika Duncan brought a
wealth of experience and
enthusiasm to the project,
including a nice taste of
hometown love, as Sherika
grew up in Madison Coun-
ty, where she graduated
from MCHS. Jonathan Pe-
terson, treasurer and event
coordinator for the group,
facilitated the day as well,
which concluded with a tro-
phy presentation for the

and door prizes being dis-
tributed to students in a

ers gave extra kudos to
County Commissioner
Renetta Parrish and State

mbry who each contributed
$100 for backpacks. Addi-
tional thanks were extend-
ed to all supporters for
their time and financial
contributions.
Due to reduced budget-
ing at the school district,
leadership from the Madi-

MONEY & FINANCE


Financial Education Crucial For Investing


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madison County is
one of the Florida coun-
ties suffering from con-
tinual generational
poverty, which obviously
underscores the fact that
new commercial in-
vestors, especially new
larger employers, are
few and far between. Ex-
isting businesses are
also struggling with the
current downturn in the
economy, even though
many have a good prod-
uct or service. The same
is true on a personal lev-
el.
Good jobs are cer-
tainly in short supply as
well. Of course, this is
restating the obvious.
Regardless of jobs, how-
ever, when there are re-
sources to invest, few
people have actually
been educated regarding
finance and investing -
either on a big or small
scale. For the most part,
the average person is
also unsure about big
money topics like the
economy, the stock mar-
ket or why oil prices
bounce around. And


when it comes to the sen-
sitive but very impor-
tant topic of personal
income few know how
to increase their income.
This leaves many people
- especially those living
on a fixed income feel-
ing as though their lives
are a matter of fate, sort
of a "victim economics."
The first and most
essential tool to improve
this condition and in
doing so perhaps create
opportunities or at least
manage their assets the
most effectively is fi-
nancial education. Be-
cause no matter where
they learned it, at some
point people with money
learned how to make
and/or keep it.
Consider the three
primary choices Madi-
son County residents
have historically select-
ed regarding their mon-
ey The following are the
most popular choices lo-
cal investors from
schoolteachers to farm-
ers to restaurant owners
- typically make when it
comes to their money,
keeping in mind that
many business owners


put a lot of their money
back into growing and
maintaining their own
businesses.
(1) They put it in the
bank in CDs.
(2) They put it into
an investment account
for retirement or sav-
ings, usually with either
their bank's financial
advisor or local financial
representative with a fi-
nancial services compa-
ny
(3) They put it into
property
And although people
hear about other invest-
ments on and off Wall
Street, few utilize them,
or even try to under-
stand them, rather rely-
ing on advice for most of
their investing.
An appropriate
word of caution is merit-
ed here. Unfortunately,
many act on the advice
of family and friends
who often possess a sim-
ilar limited understand-
ing of economics and
finance. And although
they mean well, it's
amazing the number of
individuals willing to of-
fer strong advice about
money without personal
experience or training.
Financial advisers,
and Madison County has
several exceptional
ones, go through exten-
sive training and layers
of education prior to re-
ceiving a license. Does
that give them a crystal
ball to the future? Obvi-
ously, it does not. But it
does give them the abili-


ty to understand and
teach what has and has-
n't worked for others in
the past and why Again,
it starts with education.
Regarding the three
local investing alterna-
tives mentioned above,
investing in stocks or
mutual funds has histor-
ically yielded the best re-
turn for the average
investor, as it also allows
them to invest in small
installments, perhaps
deducted from each pay-
check for a retirement
account. This account
may even have some em-
ployer matching.
The market does
make wild swings, how-
ever, and account values
can fall significantly in
no time at all. But still,
historically speaking,
these rises and falls will
average the best return
over time the operative
word being "over time."
Financial advisers con-
tinue to promote equity
investing, of course,
while emphasizing that
age, risk tolerance, cur-
rent assets and the num-
ber of years to
retirement are among
key facts that should be
used taken into account
to determine specific
choices.
Alternatively, banks
offer certificates of de-
posit, essentially "risk-
free" investments up to
stated amounts because
of the FDIC protection
(NOTE: Treasury Bills,
similar to FDIC insured
funds, are classically


considered minimum
risk, although the word
"guarantee" is not used).
The rate of return for
CDs is comparatively
low compared to the
stock market over longer
periods of time, which
illustrates the classic
risk/reward tradeoff as-
sociated with various in-
vestment options.
Seniors and those on
fixed incomes find this
investment particularly
attractive because their
objective is capital
preservation instead of
capital accumulation. In
other words, they've got
enough money to cover
their living expenses
and simply want the se-
curity of knowing their
nest egg is protected.
Others find it less attrac-
tive because the return
often narrowly exceeds
inflation after taxes.
But, since inflation has
been relatively low in
America for decades,
this investment remains
very popular. Keep in
mind that inflation can
rise without a propor-
tionate rise in interest
rates, and vice-versa.
Today, many fear the
large stimulus spending
may create inflation, but
that the incentive is to
keep interest rates low
so home and auto financ-
ing rates will be favor-
able. This would have a
devastating effect on
low, fixed-rate accounts,
reinforcing the point
that all investors would
benefit from financial


education to explore all
options, with or without
an advisor.
The other popular
local investment choice
is real estate. Historical-
ly across America, more
millionaires have been
made from real estate in-
vestment, even though
Internet billionaires and
Wall Street titans are in
the news more often. It
has been the investment
of choice for centuries,
even with the current
real estate crisis.
In an average or
booming economy, resi-
dential and commercial
property has two major
pluses: the property in-
creases in value, as the
cash flow covers the
costs. Still, the selection
of property, and the
terms for its purchase
are crucial to a good re-
turn and keeping the
property occupied. Add
in the additional ac-
counting benefits of
writing off depreciation
and other tangible ex-
penses, and real estate
investment remains pop-
ular locally and nation-
ally Even in the current
real estate bubble, in-
vestors with cash are
picking up bargains
they can exploit when
the economy returns,
and fortunately the
economy has always re-
turned since America
was founded.

"The Firstest With The Mostest


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
In a lively exchange
during his graduate
school class at the Uni-
versity of Alabama In
Birmingham (UAB), a
professor exaggerated
his southern drawl to
announce that the key to
launching a successful
business is to be, "the
firstest with the
mostest." The playful
comment was followed
with references to Coca-
Cola and McDonald's,
both companies that il-
lustrated his point.
The professor went
on to explain that no
business model has his-
torically been any
stronger, or required
any greater sophistica-
tion, than simply being
the first business to en-
ter a market. Then once
entered, they should hit
it as hard as possible to
saturate the market,
hence, "the firstest with
the mostest."
When the Internet
giant Google came on
the scene, it appeared to
initially be competing
with the search engines
associated with large In-
ternet Service Providers
who were dominating
the scene, like America
Online. Soon enough
though, Google tailored
their business model
and launched an Inter-
net advertising "click
through" design that
revolutionized the in-
dustry, and hit Internet
users perfectly As of
June 2009, Google had 65
percent of the search
market.
To compete with this
giant that epitomizes the
modern technology ver-
sion of the "firstest with
the mostest," Microsoft
and Yahoo recently
agreed to a 10-year col-
laboration to take search
market share from
Google. The current


combined market share
for the two is 28 percent,
which they look to ag-
gressively increase once
the legal requirements
are complete.
This may not be
swift, however. Regard-
ing regulators oversee-
ing this deal, some see it
as limiting competition,
as the market would
shift from three main
players to two, regard-
less of Google's "monop-
olizing" lead. Other
analysts believe Google
will simply respond to
this challenge with the
creativity and industry
leadership that has
turned their name into a
verb.

Can You Invest for College and
Retirement?

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones


You most likely need to save and invest for retirement. But if
you have children, you also may want to put money away for
their college education. Are these two goals mutually exclu-
sive?

They don't have to be but achieving them both can be
challenging. Over the past generation, the responsibility of
paying for retirement has largely shifted from the employer to
the employee. At the same time, college prices have skyrock-
eted and show few signs of slowing down.

Consequently, you face a delicate balance when it comes to
preparing and saving for both college and retirement.
Perhaps you may be facing large college bills in your prime
retirement savings years. Or if your child graduates with col-
lege loans and you plan on helping to pay for them, your cash
flow may fall short of the amount needed to meet your month-
ly bills during retirement.

But as you think about the college vs. retirement issue, keep
one overriding fact in mind: You have less time to save for
retirement than your children have to pay for college. If your
children do take out some loans, they will likely have decades
in which to repay them.

Ultimately, the amount of financial assistance you provide for
your children's college education is a personal and emotion-
al decision, as well as a financial one. Still, you can take steps
to help out your children without shortchanging yourself.

One possible strategy is to contribute to your 401(k) and your
IRA, and then use whatever money you still have available to
fund a college savings plan. If your employer offers a match
for your 401(k) or other retirement plan such as a 403(b)
or 457(b) you should, at the very least, contribute enough
to earn the match. And if at all possible, you'll want to "max
out" your IRA, which offers significant tax benefits. Your con-
tributions to a traditional IRA may be tax-deductible, and your
earnings grow on a tax-deferred basis.

Depending on your income level, you may be able to con-
tribute to a Roth IRA, which provides tax-free earnings, pro-
vided you meet certain conditions. In 2009, you can con-
tribute up to $5,000 to your IRA, or $6,000 if you're 50 or
older.

Once you've earned your employer's 401(k) match and then,
if possible, contributed the maximum amount to your IRA, you
can begin looking more closely at college savings vehicles,
such as a Section 529 plan or a Coverdell Education Savings
Account, both of which offer tax-free earnings and with-
drawals as long as the money is used for qualified education
expenses. (Withdrawals for other types of expenses may be
subject to federal and state taxes plus a 10 percent penalty.)
Also, Section 529 plan contributions may be tax-deductible in
certain states for residents who participate in their own
state's plan. To make sure you understand the tax ramifica-
tions of a Section 529 plan, you'll want to consult with your
tax advisor.

By committing yourself to regular investing, and by taking
advantage of the various investment accounts available, you
can make progress toward your retirement goals while still
tackling the high costs of higher education. That's a "win-win"
situation.

Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare Now Offers Cooling

Technology to Help Treat Cardiac Arrest Patients


Tallahassee Memor-
ial HealthCare now of-
fers a cooling
technology to help save
brain function in car-


diac arrest patients.
Less than 300 hospitals
in the U.S. use this tech-
nology. Cardiac arrest is
when a person's heart


suddenly stops function-
ing. While getting the
person's heart to start
beating again is neces-
sary to keep that person


alive, a full recovery re-
quires even further
treatment. Recent stud-
ies have shown that low-
ering the patient's body


"We have the best technology available offering image guided radiation therapy. And
we are the only ones in our region with wholebody stereotactic radiation therapy.
This allows us to treat cancer without damaging normal
cells and with fewer side affects."

temperature can result
in tremendous long-
term benefits.
"By cooling the pa-
tient's body temperature
down to 91.4 degrees,
neurological outcomes
are improved," says Ally
Fields, RN, assistant
nurse manager, Talla-
hassee Memorial Bixler
Emergency Center.
"When a person's heart
starts pumping again
and blood starts flowing
to his or her brain, mas-
sive amounts of free rad-
icals are released very
quickly This rapid re-
lease can kill brain cells,
resulting in brain dam-
age."
Cooling the patient's
body temperature slows
down the metabolism
and therefore slows
down injury and brain
damage. The American
Heart Association now
includes this body cool-
ing treatment, which is
called therapeutic hy-
pothermia, as one of
their recommendations
for increasing survival
and improving outcomes
in cardiac arrest pa-
tients.
Recognizing the val-
ue of this treatment, Tal-
lahassee Memorial
Hospital has acquired
two machines that use
water-filled gel pads that
are placed on the pa-
tient's torso and thighs
to slowly cool the pa-
tient's core temperature.
"We use this treat-
ment for resuscitated pa-
tients who arrive in our
Emergency Center with-
in 60 minutes of their
cardiac arrest," says
Fields. "It takes less
than six hours to cool
the patient down. We
keep them in that cooled
state for 24 hours, and
then we begin to slowly
warm the patient. The
patient is sedated the en-
tire time so they are un-
aware of the change in
their body tempera-
ture."
"Therapeutic hy-
pothermia has been
shown to reduce mortal-


ity and improve neuro-
logical outcomes in car-
diac arrest patients. It is
a major step forward in
managing cardiac arrest
patients," said Thomas
E. Noel, MD, cardiologist
with Southern Medical
Group. "The challenge
with treating these pa-
tients is that it requires
a multidisciplinary
approach to create a
successful program.
However, centers that
have used hypothermia
treatment have seen dra-
matic results."
A study from 2002
showed that 53 percent
of cardiac arrest pa-
tients who received this
cooling treatment had a
favorable outcome, com-
pared to only 35 percent
of cardiac arrest pa-
tients who did not re-
ceive the treatment.
"Just today, the topic
of therapeutic hypother-
mia was headline news
on CNN. Bringing this
technology to the Talla-
hassee area is just one
more example of the
world class care we pro-
vide here at TMH," says
Fields.

-E emotional Troubles In


Children Mag 8e predictable


Question: I was hit in the mouth when I was a
child and my front tooth was pushed out of place. My
childhood dentist straightened my tooth at the time, but
now the tooth is dark. Why is my tooth dark?
Answer: I have seen this so many times. I
would recommend having the tooth examined. It
is common to only take x-rays of back teeth
during cleaning appointments so a problem with
the nerve in a front tooth could go undetected.
Cavities are so much easier to detect on front
teeth that they are only x-rayed as needed. It
sounds like this is a time when an x-ray is
needed.
What commonly happens when a tooth is
injured from trauma is that the nerve inside the
tooth will die. This dead nerve will leave behind
tissue which will turn dark and discolor the tooth.
Not only is it dark, this becomes a toothache
waiting to happen. I have seen many patients
that developed a tooth ache or abscess 10 to 20
years later. The way to avoid the abscess and fix
the color is to have the infection cleaned out and
the tooth bleached from the inside (internal
bleaching).
So if you have a dark tooth. Have your dentist
take a look. You don't need to live with a dark
tooth in your smile.

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A study for the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin
School of Medicine and
Public Health revealed
some startling facts re-
garding the use of ele-
mentary teachers to
recognize and refer
emotional troubles in
their students. Deter-
mining where a child
may go from the time of
that discovery is among
questions being an-
swered by the research
team that developed a
screening tool that "ap-
pears to predict, with
startling accuracy, the
small percentage of
children most likely to
benefit from early inter-
vention."
"We wanted to find
the longer-term pat-
terns of mental health
symptoms of kids who
are most likely to devel-
op problems that would
impair them, so they
could be identified very
early in school before
the problems become
entrenched," said Dr.
Marilyn Essex, leader of
the study, which was
published in a recent
edition of the Journal
of Child Psychology
and Psychiatry. "In our
study, we did a phenom-
enal job of picking up
those kids very ear-
ly. Now those findings
need to be replicated by
others."
The study noted
that the tool could be es-
pecially useful on emo-


tional issues that are
less visible socially, and
might therefore be over-
looked, as compared to
aggressiveness and oth-
er behavior that shows
externalizing symp-
toms.
The study included
328 children from first,
third and fifth grades,
where parents and
teachers reported on
symptoms they ob-
served in students over
that six-year period.
Looking for patterns,
they identified four
groups:
Those who never
showed high levels of
symptoms
Those who showed
high levels of symptoms
but never in consecutive
school years
Those who showed
high levels of symptoms
in consecutive school
years of internalizing
(depression, anxiety) or
ext e r n ali z -
ing (oppositional defi-
ance, conduct problems,
inattention, impulsivity,
aggression)
Or, those who
showed both internaliz-
ing and externalizing in
consecutive years.
Researchers went
on to point out that by
the fifth grade, "the chil-
dren most in need of
help were those who had
showed both internaliz-
ing and externalizing
symptoms in at least
two, and usually more,
consecutive school
years."


"Looking back, we
were able to tell in
kindergarten and grade
one which children
were very likely to de-
velop this pattern of
mental health prob-
lems," Essex added. "We
were able to predict
quite well long-term pat-
terns from early behav-
ior issues."
The study further
noted that most children
periodically demon-
strate problematic be-
havior, however, those
exhibiting "recurring
patterns of both inter-
nalizing and externaliz-
ing symptoms fared the
worst."
Unfortunately, all
children demonstrating
both types of symptoms
in kindergarten were
still doing so in fifth
grade, although this
represented only three
percent of the total
number of children in-
cluded in the survey.


"We can potentially
identify these kids early
and help them from ever
developing longer-term
problems," Essex said.
One of the chal-
lenges facing this and
similar research is the
long time frame neces-
sary to observe the sub-
jects and build
verifiable data. Now
that the data has been
compiled, it must be
replicated and then for-
mally applied, which is
easier said than done in
school settings.
In Madison County,
several agencies are
charged with screening
children to determine
the presence of special
needs, although the
process is geared to
identify current needs
versus predictive
screening for future
treatment.
