Sexual Offender

Arrested After

Being Discovered

In Bedroom

Of 13-Year-Old
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A registered sexual offender was arrested on
Saturday, Oct. 3, after being discovered in the bed-
room of a 13-year-old girl.
According to a Madison
County Sheriff's Office report, at
approximately 3:40 a.m. that
morning, Cpl. William Sircy re-
sponded to the residence, located
at NW Lovett Road near
Greenville in reference to a com-
plaint about a black male found
hiding in the closet.
Sircy made contact with the
Archie Leroy victim's mother who stated that
"Tubby" Terry her 13-year-old daughter came
into her bedroom and told her
that she thought that Archie Leroy "Tubby" Terry
was hiding in the bedroom closet.
The mother said that she went into the bedroom
and told Terry to get out of the closet.
Terry stepped out and walked down the hallway
and out the back door.
The mother said that she told Terry to leave the
property and never come back. She said she watched
Terry walk in a direction north away from the resi-

Neighbors saw flames coming from a home, belonging to Bobbie Phillips, at 136 SE Akins Loop just off
Old County Camp Road late in the afternoon of Friday, October 2.
As one called 911, another neighbor started trying to contain the fire with a garden hose. Madison Fire
and Rescue and Volunteers arrived with three trucks and quickly brought the inferno under control.
The structure suffered extensive damage from fire, smoke and water. No injuries were reported.

Nation's Leading Quartet...


Gold City Returns To Madison
By Bryant ..
Thigpen
Greene -"" -.
Publishing, Inc. ,. -'
The na- 5
tion's leading
southern gospel
quartet, Gold
City, will return
to Madison for
the first time in
three years on
Thursday, Octo-
ber 8, at 7 p.m.,
at Yogi Bear's
Jellystone Park
in Madison.
Gold City
has been


around nearly 1--
30 years and re-
mains on the
forefront of
gospel music.
The group has
had major success over the years with many of its
members including the Gold City "classic" lineup of
Tim Riley, Mike Lefevre, Ivan Parker and Brian
Free. After many personnel changes, Gold City once
again put together a quartet that would sweep
America's attention in the 90's, which includes Jay
Parrack, Jonathan Wilburn, Mark Trammell and
Tim Riley
Throughout the years, Gold City has been be-
stowed over 60 fan awards, including Album of the


Year, Song of the Year, Group of the Year, and Indi-
vidual of the Year awards. In 1992, Gold City was in-
ducted into the Alabama Music Hall of Fame.
The quartet has had numerous number one ra-
dio hits over the years, making songs like "Midnight
Cry," "In My Robe Of White," "John Saw," "Truth Is
Marching On," "It's Just Another Red Sea," "I'm Not
Giving Up," "Calvary Conquers It All," "Are You

THE NEW SCHOOL

PRAYER

Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That's no offence; it's a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.

For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all
In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the state.

We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.
It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong,
We're taught that such 'judgments' do not be
long.
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.
It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school's a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!
Amen!

To the Editor,

I would like to com-
ment on the letter to the
Editor by Marta H.
Smith in Friday's edi-
tion of the Madison
County Carrier.
Lets look at some of
the points she makes.
"While the proposed
builder tells all us Lee
hicks." Did he ever talk
down to anyone at this
meeting, or was he dis-
respectful at anytime,
not at all. He was re-
spectful to all views. It
is Marta that is "label-
ing" the citizens of Lee
as hicks. I take offense
to this. I am not a Hick,
Marta. You may consid-
er yourself a hick, but I
am proud of where I call
home.
"NOT MENTION-
ING THE HUGE
AMOUNT OF MONEY
HE STANDS TO
MAKE."
I would like to ask
Marta, how much mon-
ey does she make at the
college? According to
Wikipedia "The per
capital income for the
town of Lee was $13,242.
About 19.8% of families
and 26.5 % of the popula-
tion were below the
poverty line," (Remem-
ber, many citizens make
minimum wage, which
is below $10,000 per
year) I am guessing
Marta makes at least
double if not triple the
figure of $13,242. I
would say Marta, you
stand to make a lot more
money from your job
than the average citizen
of Lee. Should you feel
bad about this? Should
the contractor?
Quoting Marta
again "Who told him he
had the job? Why would
he start hiring people to
work on the sewer sys-
tem? It isn't a done deal
yet." and "While the
proposed builder tells"
These two state-
ments confuse me Mar-
ta? Proposed means
intend, or to propose
something, so I think
that you know he has
not been given the job
yet, but you are just try-
ing to stir controversy
and confusion.
The low bid contrac-
tor did have an informa-
tional meeting to
answer any questions
that the community


may have. I find this im-
pressive as he doesn't
even have the job, and
took time out of his
schedule to answer
questions, he did not get
paid for this. Also, there
are other bids,
EVEN IF the sewer
gets approved, he is not
guaranteed the job. Ku-
dos to him. I am not
sure where you got the
idea that he had the job.
Did you even attend the
meeting? I did not see
you there?
Marta also goes on
"My husband and I did-
n't know if we would
have jobs this year"
I think this goes for
most of the people in
Lee and Madison Coun-
ty, and the Nation for
that matter. You are not
alone. So what I see
from this project is
JOBS, the very thing
you are afraid of losing.
If you lose yours, or
maybe your neighbor
loses theirs, isn't it
great that their may be
an opportunity to get
another right here in
Lee constructing this
project? Yes, it is a temp.
job, but it would pay the
bills for a year and
would possibly hold a
person over until the
economy starts to recov-
er.Or maybe new indus-
try moves in after the
construction is done. I
know the new industry
is not guaranteed, but
the year or so of con-
struction is guaranteed.
But lets not just
look at the 8-10 con-
struction jobs, lets look
at the local business'
that already employ
your neighbors.:
Don't you think that
this project would also
help Archies?
Constructions
means hungry workers.
How about the Jiffy, Gas
and snacks, etc. How
about rental properties
to house a few supervi-
sor positions that will
be brought in? (Labor
will be hired from
thecommunity) How
about local heavy equip-
ment sub contractors?
How about local septic
pumping companies, lo-
cal companies to fill old
septics?
Driving through Lee
this morning I am re-
minded about how our
local small business are


suffering. The Lee Gen-
eral Store has closed it's
doors, Archies, is now
Closed on Sundays and
Monday, how much
longer before they close
for good? What about
the jobs at all of the
above mentioned busi-
ness'. So I would ask
Marta, is this about
what is best for the com-
munity she lives and
works in, or is it all
about Marta and her
job?
Marta Goes on:"The
city of Madison has it
written in its agreement
a 5% rate increase per
year."
I believe what the
agreement states is UP
TO 5%, and no more
thanthat. Also, the same
document mentions that
the city did not have an
increase this year. So if
Lee had sewer today,
there would have been
no increase this year! So
I think that also shows
that you are misspeak-
ing when you say "PER
YEAR". The agreement
also mentions that if
the citizens of the City
of Madison see an in-
crease of 8%, that the
City of Lee's can only go
up 5%, no more!
Marta also men-
tions "The system
should have been voted
on by the citizens First
not Last. I would say to
Marta, where have you
been?
That is what the
Monthly Board meet-
ings are for. Also, the
Lee Town Council has
been working on this for
about 2 years that I
know of, maybe longer.
Have you not attended
any of the meetings?
They are open to the
public, it is your duty as
a tax paying citizen to
be involved in the
process and maybe you
should have been in-
volved much earlier, not
at the end? So maybe it
is not the Council mem-
bers that you should be
upset with, maybe it is
yourself. You never ap-
peared in front of
the Council to voice
your displeasure, so
how did they know that
youdid not want this?
Also, a quick search
of the internet, I found
that the city even has
it's own website, with
minutes of meetings on


it. Here is an excerpt
from June 3, 2008 ( That
is 16 meetings/months
ago):
"Mayor Kinsey
opened the public hear-
ing recognizing Kathy
Baker from Jordan &
Assoc. Ms. Baker stated
the council's desire was
to obtain a CDBG Grant
and the funding oppor-
tunities available
through CDBG funding.
She also stated the pur-
pose of the grant was to
construct a sewer sys-
tem and the areas that
would be affected by the
project. She opened the
floor for discussion and
as there were no con-
cerns expressed, closed
the hearing, thanking
everyone for theiratten-
dance." there were no
concerns expressed," I
assume by citizens pre-
sent or Council Mem-
bers.
If you are so con-
cerned about your com-
munity, were you not
aware of this back in
June of last year? It is
my understanding that
you knew about this
project almost 2 years
ago. Why are you just
now voicing your dis-
sent now a year and a
half later, in the
eleventh hour? Why
were you not involved
before all the pieces
were put together and
work done? Meetings
are monthly and open to
the public, ALSO, it ap-
pears that minutes from
every meeting are post-
ed on the City of Lee's
w e b s i t e
(www.leeflorida.org)
Also, since you like
to quote President Oba-
ma, lets do so: "I know
there's been a lot of mis-
information in this de-
bate, and there are some
folks out there who are
frankly bearing false
witness,".
I feel your letter to
the Editor was just that.
Sincerely
A Concerned Tax
Paying Citizen

PS. Yes, I am a resi-
dent of Lee, and will
have a Sewer Hook up.
So I am not an "Out-
sider" looking in.

A duck's quack doesn't echo,

and no one knows why.


as few as two. During
daylight hours, we could
"expand" outside the
Victor area to our
squadron, always with a
radio and alert vehicle
at hand. Nights were
spent within the com-
pound.
We practiced "two
man control." Never
was a single individual
allowed to enter the "no
lone zone" around the
aircraft. All of our med-
ical records were care-
fully screened to ensure
that we would pose no
security risk.
Generally, we would
practice no-notice
"scrambles" once each
week. The klaxon would
sound and we would be-
gin running or driving
toward the aircraft.
Quickly cleared into the
no lone zone, we climbed
aboard, strapped in,
brought up electrical
power, and turned on the
aircraft radio tuned to
the command post fre-
quency Through that
radio net, we began to
copy an alpha numeric
message into a code-
book. Very quickly, we
could detect whether or
not the message was real
or practice. I responded
to literally hundreds of
scrambles, and fortu-
nately, the message was
always practice. Early
in my career in Korea,
we actually would start
engines during these
scrambles, but that prac-
tice was soon discontin-
ued for safety reasons
when we were armed
with an actual nuclear
weapon.
The weapons them-
selves were very safe.
There were multiple lay-
ers of safeguards which
made them high-tech
and highly reliable. I
felt very comfortable
around nuclear
weapons. Conversely,
when I dealt with chemi-
cal weapons, I found
them old, outdated, and
low-tech. Chems were
freaky
Shortly after I left
Germany in 1983, NATO
and the Reagan Admin-


In three overseas
tours of duty totaling
seven years in fighter
aircraft, I pulled my
share of nuclear alert.
In Europe, this was
called Victor Alert
whereas Zulu Alert was
for air defense. Inside a
heavily guarded hard-
stand at the end of the
runway, our jets we fu-
eled and armed with a
nuclear weapon. From
the moment that the
klaxon sounded until we
launched, no more than
15 minutes were allowed
for response, message
decoding, engine start,
and taxi.
I sat Victor Alert in
South Korea, England,
Italy, Germany, and
Turkey. In Europe, our
targets were in the East-
ern Europe Warsaw Pact
nations. In Korea, the
nuclear mission was
much more complicated
because we had three po-
tential regional adver-
saries: North Korea,
China, and the Soviet
Union.
The theater nuclear
mission had two broad
objectives. First was de-
terrence. With the nu-
clear umbrella, we
hoped (and succeeded)
to deter our adversaries
from starting a large
scale, general war. Sec-
ond, since we were badly
outnumbered, we had a
"first strike" strategy
whereby we would re-
serve the right to em-
ploy nuclear weapons to
stop a massive enemy
onslaught. The gateway
into Central Europe was
through an area known
as the Fulda Gap. Ac-
cording to our plans, as
Soviet and Warsaw Pact
divisions poured
through this area, we ex-
pected to employ nukes
to reverse the disadvan-
tage.
At times, I would
spend as much as one-
third of my time on Vic-
tor Alert. We changed
aircrews on Monday,
Wednesday and Friday
Unless we encountered
problems with the jet,
we would change out the
aircraft every three
weeks. In the Victor
area, we had a dormito-
ry and dining hall, as
well as a command cen-
ter. Each aircraft was in
a guarded shelter. Some
Victor areas had as
many as six armed air-
craft, while others had

Victor Alert


istration began to de-
ploy two classes of the-
ater nuclear weapons,
Ground Launched
Cruise Missiles (GLCM)
and the Pershing II, in
response to the Soviet's
SS-20. With these sys-
tems, the fighters came
off nuclear alert, never
to restart even after the
theater missiles were
outlawed and destroyed
by treaty. Victor Alert
was a thing of the past.
About the time this
was happening, Ronald
Reagan launched his
Strategic Defense Initia-
tive or SDI, derided by
the naysayers as "Star
Wars." This was the
idea that we could move
away from nuclear de-
terrence and "mutual
assured destruction" to-
ward defending against
a missile attack.
Through the last quar-
ter of a century, missile
defense has been cham-
pioned by Republicans
and gutted by Democ-
rats. Today, we have
some capability to de-
fend against a missile
attack from enemies
like North Korea and
Iran.
George W Bush
made the decision to
place interceptors and
radars in Eastern Eu-
rope, primarily to de-
fend against the
growing Iran nuclear
and missile threat. Rus-
sia was solidly against
this deployment. Presi-
dent Obama has re-
versed the decision,
undermining our rela-
tionship with the
Czechs and Poles in fa-
vor of the Russians.
The constant through
this strategic start-stop
is Secretary of Defense
Robert Gates. He says
that the intelligence has
changed since the de-
ployment decision was
made by his former
boss, and that the Oba-
ma strategy is correct
under the current cir-
cumstances. Although
this has not reassured
the people of Czechoslo-
vakia and Poland, I hope
Gates is right.

LOCAL & REGIONAL CRIME BLOTTER


Florida Man Indicted In Alleged Fraudulent Sexual Offender

Lobbying And Fundraising Scheme


A Florida doctor was charged by a federal grand
jury in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., with allegedly orchestrat-
ing a fraudulent political fundraising and lobbying
scheme through which he secretly diverted to himself
more than $350,000 from contributions to political or-
ganizations he controlled, announced Assistant At-
torney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Criminal
Division. Alan D. Mendelsohn, 51, of Hollywood, Fla.,
is also charged with fraudulently concealing an addi-
tional $274,000 in payments he allegedly directed his
lobbying clients to make to third parties on his behalf,
including tuition payments to his children's schools,
in an effort to circumvent lobbying disclosure rules
and other reporting requirements.
The 32-count indictment charges Mendelsohn
with mail and wire fraud, aiding and abetting mail
and wire fraud, and making false statements to feder-
al agents. Mendelsohn will make his initial appear-
ance today at 11 a.m. before U.S. Magistrate Judge
Lurana Snow in Ft. Lauderdale.
According to the indictment, beginning in ap-
proximately 1999, Mendelsohn, a practicing physi-
cian, was involved in lobbying members of the
Florida legislature and other state officials for legisla-
tion and budget expenditures of importance mainly
to ophthalmologists. The indictment alleges that in
approximately late 2002, Mendelsohn was asked by
various lobbyists and businesspeople if he would use
his political connections to assist their clients in ob-
taining and defeating legislation and in obtaining oth-
er favorable government action. According to the
indictment, beginning in approximately 2002, Mendel-
sohn allegedly created a series of political organiza-
tions and corporations for the purpose of soliciting
and then transferring contributions between the enti-
ties in ways that would be difficult to trace.
Beginning in approximately 2002, through a pat-
tern of false representations and promises, Mendel-
sohn allegedly solicited and received more than $2
million in donations to the political organizations he



Put these Estate Planning
Moves to Work
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones


Like everyone else, you want to leave a legacy. To
make it happen, though, you need to do some estate
planning. For most of us, that sounds like a scary task,
but it doesn't have to be as long as you break it
down into a few key moves.
Here, in a nutshell, are some of the broad-based
moves you'll want to consider:
Communicate your wishes. When drawing up
your estate plan, you can't leave anything to chance -
so you need to communicate your wishes in writing.
This means you need to draw up the appropriate legal
documents, such as a will and a living trust. If you die
intestate (without a will), your belongings will be dis-
tributed to your "heirs" as defined by state laws and
these distributions may not be at all what you had in
mind. If you want to avoid probate and possibly draw
up more complex instructions -, for instance, leaving
different amounts of money to different heirs at differ-
ent points in their lives you may also need to create
a trust.
Protect your family. When you hear the words
"estate planning," your first thoughts may be of what
you can leave behind to grown children, grandchildren
and even great-grandchildren. But if you develop your
estate plan while your children are young and you
certainly should you should name a guardian for
them in case both you and your spouse were to die
prematurely. Of course, you'll also need to consider
having the right type and amount of life insurance for
survivor income and loan repayments.
Position your investments to benefit your heirs.
You can arrange for some of your investments to pro-
vide significant benefits to your heirs. For example, you
can stretch your IRA to extend the key benefit of IRAs
tax-deferred earnings over a period of several
years.You should also make sure you've updated ben-
eficiary designations on various accounts, such as
annuities and 401(k) plans, to make sure the assets go
to the right people. These designations are very impor-
tant, as they can supersede even the instructions in
your will.
Protect against incapacity. None of us can pre-
dict the shape of our physical and mental well-being in
the years to come. But to protect your family, you'll cer-
tainly want to be prepared for everything. That's why
you'll want to make the appropriate arrangements,
such as establishing a power of attorney and health
care directive, while you're still healthy. These types of
documents will empower family members, or other
people close to you, to take the necessary steps to
carry out your wishes even if you become incapacitat-
ed. As with other aspects of your estate plan, howev-
er, you'll want to review these arrangements periodi-
cally to make sure they still reflect your current think-
ing.

To make any of these moves in fact, to make any
moves at all related to estate planning you'll need
to work with a team of professionals, including your
tax, legal and financial advisors. Comprehensive
estate planning can be complex and time-consuming
but it's worth the effort.

controlled from persons for whom he agreed to pro-
vide lobbying and other services. According to the in-
dictment, Mendelsohn allegedly represented to the
contributors that their funds would be used for media
and other campaigns on political issues of impor-
tance to them and to support political candidates. In
fact, the indictment alleges that Mendelsohn secretly
diverted more than $350,000 in contributed funds to
his personal use and benefit through payments made
in ways that were misrepresented or concealed en-
tirely in required public disclosure reports for the po-
litical organizations. The indictment alleges that
Mendelsohn used the diverted funds, in part, to pur-
chase a residence and a car, to pay for tutors and tu-
ition for his children, to pay his personal credit card
bills, and to pay bonuses to an employee of his med-
ical practice.
The indictment also alleges that Mendelsohn
falsely represented to a contributor that he secured
bribery agreements with senior government officials.
During 2003 and 2004, the indictment alleges that
Mendelsohn falsely represented to the contributor
that he had brokered an agreement with senior gov-
ernment officials to close an ongoing criminal inves-
tigation by state officials in Florida of the contributor
and others in exchange for campaign donations and
other payments totaling more than $1 million. The in-
dictment also alleges that in subsequent conversa-
tions in 2007, Mendelsohn falsely told the contributor
that senior government officials had agreed to exert
pressure on federal prosecutors investigating the con-
tributor to close the investigation in exchange for
$400,000 in contributions. As a result of Mendelsohn's
false representations, the contributor caused more
than $1 million in payments to be made, as directed by
Mendelsohn. The indictment states that, in fact, no
such unlawful agreements to close any investigations
had been made with any public officials.
The indictment alleges that in order to increase
his power and influence as a lobbyist so that he could
obtain more contributions and consequently more
funds for himself, Mendelsohn made approximately
$87,000 in payments to a now-former public official.
These payments, which were made from the political
organizations Mendelsohn controlled, were disguised
as payments for consulting services rendered by an
intermediary to whom the checks were written. In ad-
dition, the indictment alleges that Mendelsohn un-
dertook or directed others to undertake actions to
conceal the true source of certain campaign contri-
butions. The indictment also alleges that Mendelsohn
caused income and expense amounts to be falsely
characterized or omitted in the books and records of
political organizations and corporations he con-
trolled and from public disclosure reports that re-
quired the accurate reporting of income and
expenditures.
Mendelsohn also allegedly made several material
false statements to federal agents investigating these
allegations beginning in late May 2007. For example,
according to the indictment, Mendelsohn falsely de-
nied that he had represented to one of the contribu-
tors that he had secured an agreement with senior
government officials to terminate the state investiga-
tion involving the contributor. Mendelsohn also false-
ly claimed that he did not receive any personal benefit
from using his political connections. In addition, the
indictment alleges he falsely denied that he ever re-
ceived any financial benefit from the political organi-
zations for which he solicited contributions and
controlled.
An indictment is merely an accusation. All defen-
dants are innocent until proven guilty
The charges of mail and wire fraud each carry a
maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000
fine. The charges of false statements each carry a
maximum penalty of five years in prison and a
$250,000 fine.
This case is being prosecuted by Senior Trial At-
torney Mary K. Butler and Trial Attorneys Justin V.
Shur and Eric G. Olshan of the Criminal Division's
Public Integrity Section, headed by William M. Welch,
II, Chief. This case is being investigated by the FBI's
Miami Field Office.

Man Charged In Connection With

Port St. Lucie Bank Robbery
Jeffrey H. Sloman, Acting United States Attorney
for the Southern District of Florida, Michael J. Fol-
mar, Acting Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau
of Investigation, Miami Field Office, and Donald
Shinnamon, Chief, Port St. Lucie Police Department,
announced that defendant Jonathan Andre Gilmore,
29, was charged in a criminal complaint with bank
robbery, in violation of Title 18, United States Code,
Section 2113(A). He made his initial appearance in
federal court today, and was detained pending trial.
Arraignment is scheduled for October 9. If convicted,
the defendant faces a statutory maximum penalty of
20 years imprisonment.
According to the criminal complaint filed in
court, on September 28, Jonathan Andre Gilmore en-
tered Riverside National Bank in Port St. Lucie, and
passed a hand-written note to a teller. The note de-
manded money and threatened violence. It read:
"Do not hit any alarms or people will die. I have a
gun and will use it! You are to go to the drive through
tellers [sic] drawer and empty it of every 100, 50, and
20 no dye packs or tracking devices-then empty your
drawer of every 100, 50, 20, 10, 5, and 1, no alarms, no
dye packs or tracking devices or I'll use my gun-hur-
ry up [sic] [emphasis in original]"
Thereafter, the teller collected money from multi-
ple teller drawers and placed the cash in a brown pa-
per bag, along with a tracking device. The teller gave
the bag with the money and the tracking device to the
robber, who then fled the bank with approximately
$5,530. The tracking devise was subsequently recov-
ered on the Florida Turnpike in Martin County, FL.
Additional investigation led to the defendant's arrest.
Mr. Sloman commended the investigative efforts
of the FBI and the Port St. Lucie Police Department.
The case is being handled by Assistant U.S. Attorneys
Theodore Cooperstein and Carmen Lineberger.
Charges in a complaint are merely accusations
and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and un-
til proven guilty

John Grosskopf,
president of North
Florida Community
College, was intro-
duced by the college's
past-president, Morris
Steen, as the guest
speaker at the Sept. 30
meeting of the Madi-
son Rotary Club.
Grosskopf began
his presentation by ex-
plaining to the Rotary
membership and their
guests the myriad of
reasons why right now

riod for North Florida
Community College.
Many new certificate
programs and new
classes have either al-
ready begun, or are
scheduled to begin,
with the Spring 2010 se-
mester.
These classes in-
clude, but are not limit-
ed to: an EMT

courses (more to be
added), two Law En-
forcement classes, and

beginning in the
spring, new entrepre-
neurial classes will be-
gin.
NFCC is also offer-
ing a new Educator
Preparation Institute
(EPI) program at its
Green Industries loca-
tion west of Monticello
that will allow Bache-
lors Degree holders to
become qualified for
their education certifi-
cates in about eleven
months.
The College is also
promoting new pro-
grams that make it eas-
ier for students to
enroll and to make the
entire program more
affordable. For exam-
ple, NFCC now offers a
tuition payment plan
were students can
make a down payment
on their tuition and
then make payments
during the term. Also,
customized textbooks
are now being used to
help reduce the cost of
textbooks to the stu-
dents and during cer-
tain times, students
can actually purchase
two classes on a Friday,
and get the third Fri-
day class for free with
NFCC's new "T.G.I.F."
program. And the all-
new Virtual Book store
will open in the spring.
As President
Grosskopf continued
his presentation, he
discussed certain chal-
lenges that the school
faces as well. He ex-
plained that academi-
cally, the college is
ranked nationally.
However, for some rea-
son, getting new stu-
dents and their parents
to visit the college in


person to get a better
understanding of the
school's atmosphere
has been more difficult
than one might expect.
The school has a man-
date to serve its home
six county market area
and has the ability to
have students continue
on the same campus to-
wards their Bachelors
thru programs with St.
Leo University and
FAMU, but for some
reason, some local fam-
ilies overlook taking
NFCC for a personal
test drive by visiting
the campus in person.
Grosskopf stated
that the school's Super
Saturday, which is held
in March, is an excel-
lent time to visit and
get a feel for the facili-
ty and to meet instruc-
tors and staff. And the
schools smaller size af-
fords everyone the op-
portunity to develop a
more personal relation-
ship with students and
faculty alike. Visita-
tions by parents and
their potential new stu-
dents are always wel-
comed and encouraged.
The President
closed by saying that
funding from the state
is directly affected by
enrollment trends and
that for NFCC those
trends are presently
going in the right di-
rection. The school is
poised and ready for
immediate moderate
growth. And he invit-
ed all to continue to
visit the school on a
regular basis to keep
abreast of the many
new and exciting ad-
vances the college is
making.

What's In


The Bag?

By Bryant Thigpen
Greene Publishing, Inc.
What's in the bag? That's a tough question. But
it's a question that can be answered by visiting the
store located at 248 SW Range Avenue in Madison.
The store is called What's In The Bag? and is loaded
with items that fit perfectly in a bag.
In July of 2008, Daryll and Dawn Gunter of Per-
ry opened their first store. The store is located in
downtown Perry, and carries the same name as the
new Madison business. With such great success in
Perry, the couple decided to open another gift store
and chose Madison as their new store's home.
"We're glad to be back in Madison," stated
Daryll. Daryll shared with this reporter that he and
his wife whp both attended North Florida Commu-
nity College in Madison and fell in love with the
small town atmosphere that Madison brings. Daryll
was a student at NFCC in 1989-1991 and Dawn at-
tended a few years later in 2001-2002.
"It's a really cool town," Daryll said about Madi-
son. He was quick to point out that over 50 percent of
business obtained since the opening has been
tourists. "Most of our business has come from out-
of-town people who like the antique and gift shops
that Madison has to offer."
The business officially opened its doors on Octo-
ber 1, and they are excited to bring their unique
business in Madison.
"One thing you'll find about our gift store is that
we have everyday gifts for everyday occasions,"
Daryll stated as he gave this reporter a tour of the
store. From $2.99 Florida State coasters to a $499
platter, the store has anyone covered in having a gift
for every occasion, as well as unbeatable prices.
Some of the gift items that stand out in the store
are their full line of china (including brands such as
Lenox, Gorham, Wedgewood, Waterford, Noritake,
Fiesta), custom gift baskets, baby clothes and gifts
for newborns, pocketbooks and much more.
Although the store specializes in gifts, a nice
feature of the store is their wedding section. The
store carries a wide variety of wedding necessities,
and will soon carry tuxedo rentals.
For gift shop needs, stop by and shop at What's
In the Bag? and welcome Daryll and Dawn back to
Madison.


Shirley Ann Barks-
dale, original thinker
and dedicated teacher,
dreamed of making a
difference in the lives of
children. Her special de-
votion was given to chil-
dren with emotional,
mental and physical
challenges. She pur-
chased a 240-acre farm
one mile west of Pinet-
ta, Florida with a recre-
ational and educational
park in mind. She se-
cured that dream when
she willed her
farm (the
Barksdale
Farm) to those
willing to cre-
ate and care for
such a place.

zations and
individuals in-
terested in
making her
dream a reality
have been work-
ing toward pro-
viding a
beautiful park
with hiking
trails and a 1900's farm
museum. Funds for
achieving Shirley's
dream were limited, but
through grants, support
from the Madison Coun-
ty Correctional Facility,
donations and the hard
work of Board members
and volunteers the
Board will begin wel-

ages to the Barksdale
Farm beginning No-
vember 2009. Other
than published Open

will only be open to the
public by appointments
until there is a full-time
caretaker.
How can the farm
be used?


While the farm-
house and immediate
surrounding have been
historically restored
and furnished, the
house has central heat
and air and functioning

bathrooms are available
to all visitors. As such,

Question:
What do you know
around?


about this flu that is going


Answer:
I know it is going around and a lot of people are
getting it right now. I know it includes a fever, which
goes up and goes down, and goes back up again,
but seems like it will never go away. I also know it
isn't much fun.
Beyond that, there is something else I know. If
you have moderate gum disease or diabetes with gum
disease, you may have noticed your gums bleeding
with the flu. Researchers tell us that the progression
of gum disease is episodic in nature. We once thought
that the progressive loss of dental bone and receding
gums was a gradual steady process. We now know
that is not the case. Gum disease flares up in
"episodes" and there is rapid destruction of the gums.
The precipitating cause for the onset of rapidly
destructive gum disease is a sudden illness like this flu
or a hospitalization for illness. With intervention, the
progression of gum disease can be stopped, and it will
be far less active for a while.
It is now recommended that if you have gum
disease that you get your teeth cleaned after
recovering from the flu. It doesn't matter if your 6
months is due. Go in a little early and keep your
gums healthy.

Bronson Warns Consumers

About Bogus Check Scams


Florida Agriculture
and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson is warning
consumers about a bo-
gus letter circulating in
Florida and across the
United States telling peo-
ple they have won mon-
ey and including a check
in the mailing.
The letter has a
check enclosed for $985
and instructions on
how to claim a lump
sum payout of an $8,000
prize award. The letter
also says a tax payment
of $810 is required be-
fore the lump sum pay-
ment can be sent to the
recipient. Recipients
are cashing the checks
to pay the tax and when
the checks are discov-
ered to be counterfeit
several days later, con-
sumers are held liable
by the banks for the
money. By then, the
consumers have al-
ready wired the money
to the scam artists.
The "Award Claim
Notification" letter has
letterhead from a legiti-
mate marketing compa-
ny, Geisheker Group out
of Green Bay, Wisconsin,
but with erroneous con-
tact information.
Geisheker Group has
been the victim of iden-
tity theft and has posted
a warning on its website
about the scam. Compa-
ny officials indicate they
have been fielding hun-
dreds of calls about the
letter. The counterfeit
checks have the name of
a legitimate bank and
appear to be real.
The letter says the
consumer has a winning
ticket for a Consumer
Rewards Program and
even lists the ticket num-
ber. A contact name and
number is included in
the letter but the people
answering are actually
part of the scam.
"We have seen dif-
ferent versions of this
bogus check scam,"
Bronson said. "The bot-
tom line is if you receive
a letter indicating you
have won money from
some unknown entity
and there is a check in-
cluded, you should be
very suspicious. The
scam artists often tell
consumers they have to
pay taxes on the win-
nings and that is how
R Tried and True Nay
To Start The Day!
And its (affiene Free!!


they are making money
off the scams."
Consumers who
have received the letter
can file a complaint
with the Department's
Division of Consumer


Services at http://

Wholesale Homes Of Florida Offers


Great Homes At Great Prices


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
For most families, a
home represents the
largest and most person-
al purchase they will
ever make. In Madison
County, choices range
from mobile homes to
block, wood and brick
homes. Over the last
decade, however, more
and more homebuyers
are turning to manufac-
tured and modular
homes as the alternative
that allows for the best
of home quality at af-
fordable prices.
According to the
website, www.manufact
uredhousing.org, "To-
day's manufactured
homes can deliver out-
standing quality and
performance at prices
ranging from 10 to 35
percent less per square
foot than conventional
site-built homes.
"The controlled con-
struction environment
and assembly-line tech-
niques remove many of
the problems encoun-
tered during traditional
home construction,
such as poor weather,
theft, vandalism, dam-
age to building products
and materials, and un-
skilled labor. Factory
employees are trained
and managed more ef-
fectively and efficiently
than the system of con-
tracted labor employed
by the site-built home
construction industry
"Today's manufac-
tured homes have expe-
rienced a major
evolution in the types
and quality of homes be-
ing offered to buyers.
Technological advances
are allowing manufac-
tured home builders to
offer a much wider vari-
ety of architectural
styles and exterior fin-
ishes that will suit most
any buyer's dreams, all
the while allowing the
home to blend in seam-
lessly into most any
neighborhood. Two-sto-
ry and single-family at-
tached homes are but
two of the new styles be-
ing generated by facto-
ry-built innovation.
"Interior features
now include such fea-
tures as vaulted ceilings
and working fireplaces
to state-of-the-art
kitchens and baths, giv-
ing the homebuyer all
the features found in
traditional, site-built
homes. Enhanced ener-
gy efficiency in manu-
factured homes,
achieved with upgraded
levels of insulation and


more efficient heating
and cooling systems,
provide another source
of savings for homeown-
ers, especially in this
era of rising energy
costs. Smart buyers are
turning to EnergyStar-
labeled manufactured
homes for substantial
savings in many aspects
of owning and operating
a home."
Locally, few offer
more experience or can
deliver a better manu-
factured home than
Wayne Johnson at
Wholesale Homes of
Florida in Live Oak.
Specializing in ScotBilt
Homes, the company of-
fers a wide variety of
homes to suit any buy-
er's taste and budget.

Bringing Quality And Cost-Effective Health Services To Madison County....


LIP Project Making Great Strides


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Providing quality
and affordable health
care is a challenge facing


every corner of America.
In rural areas like Madi-
son County where low
income is especially
prevalent the challenge


is greatly amplified, as
the number of uninsured
and underinsured is
much higher. Add to that
mix, the region's near-

CEO Visits Madison
MCMH Foundation Draws Strong Community Leadership


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The success or fail-
ure of many non-profit
organizations, especially
hospitals, will often is
come down to the dollars.
The best of intentions,
deepest of dedication
and quality of personnel
must also be adequately
funded, which is typical-
ly supplied not only from
operations, but also from
community contribu-
tions of time and re-
sources. This is where
foundations help balance
the equation.
According the their
website located at
www.tmh.org, the Talla-
hassee Memorial Health-
Care Foundation
"operates for the benefit
of Tallahassee Memori-
al HealthCare, Inc.
(TMH) and it functions
as an integral part of
TMH's operational struc-
ture. In particular, the
mission of the Founda-
tion is to develop philan-
thropic support for TMH
and to generate a high
level of community un-
derstanding and involve-
ment in TMH's vision,
mission, goals and objec-
tives. The Foundation is
actively engaged in the
implementation and exe-
cution of TMH's strate-
gic plan."
President and CEO
of the TMH Foundation,
Paula S. Fortunas, re-
cently visited Madison
County to address com-
munity leadership gath-
ered to discuss the future
of Madison County
Memorial Hospital,
which is in the final
stages of rolling out a
new state-of-the-art facil-
ity in downtown Madi-
son. Hospital leadership
joined elected officials,
civic volunteers and pro-

S. Fortunas presents a check on behalf of Dr. James
Stockwell, a Tallahassee specialist who supports the
launch of the new Madison County Memorial Hospi-
tal. Fortunas (left) is presenting the generous dona-


tion to Tim Sanders and
Director Vicki Howerton.

The agenda Fortunas
delivered was both infor-
mational and motivation-
al, emphasizing the
importance of communi-
ty involvement and "buy-
in" to ensure the success
of the proposed facility,
which will be construct-
ed from local assessment
and USDA funding
sources. MCMH CEO
David Abercrombie,
Board Chair Howard
Phillips and Funding
Specialist Jim Parrish
have received much-de-
served kudos as they co-
ordinate these efforts,
but again, it was under-
scored that community
support would be essen-
tial to its future success.
In addition to future
time commitments, sev-
eral tangible contribu-
tions were also presented
during the lunch meet-
ing, including a generous
cash donation from Dr.
James Stockwell and a
pro bono marketing do-
nation from Madison Me-
dia Group. In the end, all


fessional specialists who affirmed their commit-
share the common vision ment to raising re-
of broad, quality health- sources and awareness
care for all Madison as the project moves for-
County residents. ward.


MCMH Public Relations


Over the next few
months, the MCMH
Foundation will form its
organizational identity,
although its core focus
will likely carry many of
the attributes Fortunas
and her colleagues have
utilized in Tallahassee to
forge their notable suc-
cess. Similarly, the
MCMH Foundation will,
"Seek funding and advi-
sory collaborations and
partnerships with enti-
ties of mutual focus and
goal."
Simply put, the local
foundation looks to draw
from Fortunas' vast expe-
rience and success to ac-
celerate its learning
curve, for which Vicki
Howerton, MCMH com-
munity relation's coor-
dinator, expressed
appreciation on behalf
of the whole group.
"We are so apprecia-
tive of Paula's contribu-
tion to launching our
foundation, and thank all
the community leader-
ship gathered for this
great cause."

epidemic rate of chronic
diseases and children's
health issues, and the im-
mediate need for sustain-
able solutions is evident.
Fortunately, the Madison
County Health Depart-
ment is delivering just
such a solution.
Administrator Kim
Barnhill and Project Di-
rector Kim Allbritton re-
cently provided the first
annual update of the de-
partment's Low Income
Pool (LIP) Project, serv-
ing Madison and Jeffer-
son Counties, which was
launched to address
these critical needs.
First year project
goals included:
Expansion of prima-
ry care
Establish medical
homes
Establishment of pa-
tient navigator with Tal-
lahassee Memorial
HealthCare
Screen uninsured
and actively assisting
with health care cover-
age
Enhance current dis-
ease management ser-
vices
Provide prescription
assistance

From a practical per-
spective, these objectives
translate into providing
expanded quality care
for more patients, while
diverting costly visits to
emergency rooms for
those visits more appro-


privately seen by a gener-
al care practitioner. His-
torically, many
uninsured residents use
the emergency room for
their primary care, many
times because these ser-
vices are available after
work.
To address this
dilemma, the LIP project
first added a full time Ad-
vanced Registered Nurse
Practitioner (ARNP) to
the health department
staff, and then launched
an after hours clinic on
Wednesday.
The response has
been exceptional, result-
ing in:
Increased access to
health care by providing
services to 420 new pa-
tients and diverting 108
from ER, saving $272,484
in ER charges (1/09 -
06/09)
After Hours Clinic in
Madison County alone
served: 303 patients, op-
erational 20 weeks, di-
verted 68 from the ER,
saving $171,564 in ER
charges (5/6/09 -9/25/09)
Assumed leadership
role in the county by es-
tablishing patient sup-
port services and system
navigation through the
hiring of eligibility staff
and prescription assis-
tance specialist
Established partner-
ships with DCF, SSI &
Healthy Kids to facilitate
and expedite health care
coverage for the unin-


sured
Madison County
EMS shows a decrease in
emergency calls by 275 as
compared to a year ago.
Juan Botino, Director
EMS, "We are actually
275 less calls than last
year at this time...We
have a higher percentage
of critical calls and out
of county transport".
Impressively, this is
just the first year. Addi-
tional staff is being hired
and clinic hours will con-
tinue to expand. Diabetes
and other chronic care
are showing particular
improvement as well, but
admittedly challenges re-
main. The department
looks forward to better
coordination with local
medical providers, while
further expanding dental
and additional after hour
services, including men-
tal health. Leadership
also emphasized its goal
to continue partnering
locally and in Tallahas-
see because, in the end,
regional cooperation re-
mains a critical compo-
nent to success.

tion about LIP program
partnership, or to obtain

hours clinic, contact the

Department at (850) 973-

Madison And Jefferson County Health Departments
Low Income Pool Project
Success Stories


During MCHD's After Hours Clinic, a mother with her three children came in
to obtain school physical for two of the children. Her husband works out of town
and she works at a local childcare facility The mother has health insurance; how-
ever, her usual provider does not have extended hours and with her work schedule
she was not able to take off from work to take the children in for their physical.
Due to the availability of the MCHD's clinic the mother was able to obtain physi-
cals for her children at a reduced cost. The clinic was extremely busy that evening
and she signed in for the two younger children to see the provider. As the evening
progressed the mother patiently waited her turn. It was near closing time and the
project director just happened to over hear the mother and the oldest child dis-
cussing her ear hurting. The project director asked the mother if that was the rea-
son for their visit and she stated, "No, she was there to get physical for the two
younger children." The director asked the mother how long the child's ear had
been hurting and she stated, "a few weeks." The project director asked why she
did not sign that child in to see the provider and she stated that she did not have
the money to pay for the visit as she had health care coverage but the CHD was not
her assigned provider. The project director approached the nursing director with
the issue and the nursing director spoke with the mother and arranged for the old-
er child to be seen. A financial work-up was done and based on her financial situ-
ation she was able to obtain care and medications for that child at a reduced cost.
When the nursing director asked the mother what she would have done had the
clinic not been open, she stated she would have taken her to the emergency room
(ER) if it had gotten worse and then her insurance would have to pay As a result
of the clinic being open, all three children obtained care and diverted one from the
ER as the child did have a severe ear infection.
-----------------


The Jefferson County Health Offi-
cer received a phone call from a legis-
lator's aide regarding the vision of an
uninsured child. A pediatrician had
contacted the legislator because of his
frustration with obtaining medical
services for a child who was in danger
of going blind if
left untreated. A
referral was made
to the County
Health Department -
(CHD) Eligibility .
Specialist. After
screening the
mother the Eligi-
bility Specialist
(ES) determined
the mother and her
daughter were eli-
gible for Medicaid.
With the assistance
of the ES, the
mother initiated an
online Medicaid
application. Once


the application was submitted with all
pertinent documentation required,
the ES was able to call her contact
within the Department of Children
and Families to expedite the Medicaid
eligibility determination so that the
child would have health care coverage.
The Jefferson
County Health De-
partment sched-
uled the medical
S',~ ~ appointment with
a specialist in Jack-
sonville and then
arranged trans-
portation through
Medicaid on Big
Bend Transit. This
entire process took
less than 3 days to
complete due to the
system developed
by the CHD to pro-
vide application as-
sistance to the
uninsured.

Cowboys Pounce On Tigers


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison Coun-
ty Cowboys traveled to
Lake City on Friday
night, Oct. 2, looking to
maintain their undefeat-
ed season against the Co-
lumbia County Tigers.
The Division 4A Tigers
brought a respectable
record into the match
up, with two wins, a tie
and no losses to their
credit. Columbia's run
came to a quick end,
however, as Madison
County blew them out,
56-14.
The Cowboys (4-0)
schooled the Tigers on
both sides of the line,
racking up huge offen-
sive gains on the
ground, as they dealt out
punishing defensive
blows from the opening
to the closing whistle.
Behind their talented of-
fensive line, Mike Coe's
offense has averaged 40
points a game. While im-
pressively, across the
line, Rod Williams "Iron
Curtain" has allowed
only 14 points a game on
defense.
Following in his
brother's footsteps,
Mar'terrius McDaniel is
quickly proving that ath-
letic greatness runs in
the family. Like brother
Jacobbi who is quickly


making a name for him-
self at Florida State Uni-
versity after leading the
Cowboys to one champi-
onship, Mar'terrius is
leading Madison Coun-
ty's offense this year,
putting up two more
scores on Friday night
against the Tigers.
Quarterback Kelvin
Singletary kept the ball
moving all evening,
rushing and passing for
several touchdowns
along the way, as did
Xavier Brown and Dan-
tonio Denson, with
scores also put up by
Terry Morris and
Charles Brown. The fine
play was accented by
great ball control, with
the Cowboys eating up
the clock like as they
took apart the defense.
"Coach Coe has done
a great job with the
blockers up front, who
make everybody in the
backfield look good.
Coach Williams and all
the coaching staff are
doing a fine job!" Head
Coach Frankie Carroll
said.
On defense, the Cow-
boys iron Curtain con-
tinues to repel
opponents, and although
Rod Williams' goal for
his defense is to allow no
more than one touch-
down per game, most


Dantonio Denson (#34) bursts to the outside, putting up another strong performance, and a touchdown,
to keep the Cowboys undefeated.


would agree they are get-
ting the job done in a big
way. After the early sur-
prise of the Tiger's big
passing touchdown, the
secondary closed down
the pass for the remain-
der of the game.
Defensive standouts
Cevante Turner and
Justin Hampton, not to
mention the bruising
hits of linebacker and
special team's ace Gus
Williams, led their team-
mates in great displays
of physicality The "Tall


Wall" Chyrome Frazier
and the "Rock in the
Middle" Dantarius
Howard, along with Jer-
maine Hart and others
added to the defensive
dominance. Williams
actually added some of-
fensive rushes late in the
game, demonstrating
the diversity Head
Coach Frankie Carroll
has used to give him one
of the best records
among active coaches.
"The game is 48 min-
utes. From the time we


start workouts in the
summer, the players are
trained to play hard the
whole game, every
game," Carroll ex-
plained after the victory
Even when the Cow-
boys were ahead by
three touchdowns,
coaches could be heard
reminding players that
each down was the only
one that mattered, as
team leadership rein-
forced the core message.
Carroll had plenty of
praise for that leader-


ship as well.
The next game for
Madison County is this
Friday, Oct. 9, against
Godby at 7 p.m. at Chiles
High School. It is the
first of only two division
games for the Cowboys;
so all fans are urged to
come out proud and loud
in support of the ma-
roon and silver.
GO COWBOYS!

adequate for one type of
burn may not be adequate
for another i.e. for pile
burning a rubber tire
front-end loader with a
root rake is hard to beat,
yet it doesn't work as good
as a farm tractor with har-
rows for a broadcast burn
(acreage)
When burning near
a smoke sensitive area;
such as highways, air-
ports, nursing homes
etc... the fire cannot emit
any smoke at all and most
times need to be buried to
ensure this, so have the
means to accomplish this
when burning in those ar-
eas.
Most wildfires are
human caused, so be care-
ful when burning.
Please call the local
Division of Forestry office
if you have any questions

Did You Know...
Escaped Debris Burning is one of the leading causes of wildfires in Flori-
da.
The Florida Division of Forestry administers Florida's outdoor burning
and forest fire laws.
Some types of burning require an authorization from the Division of
Forestry while others do not.
Burning yard waste does not require an authorization but you must fol-


low the rules for your
area.

You May Burn
Yard Waste As Long
As:
You meet the re-
quired setbacks and no
local city or county ordi-
nances prohibit burning.
The yard waste was
generated on your prop-
erty and it will fit in an 8
foot diameter pile or non-
combustible container
Your fire is ignited
after 9 a.m. eastern time
and is extinquised one
hour before sunset.
