Child Abducted From Ethel


Church


Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that
on Sunday, Nov. 8, at approximately 11:23 a.m., the
Madison County Sheriff's Office was contacted con-
cerning a possible child abduction from the Lee United
Methodist Church.
Multiple officers and investigators responded to
the location in an attempt to obtain pertinent informa-
tion regarding the incident for a possible "Amber
Alert." It was soon discovered that the incident was a
custodial issue between the parents of the child and it
was the child's mother that came to the church unan-
nounced and took the child without any notification to
the child's father or other family.
Investigators obtained additional information of
the mother's potential destination being back to the
state of Maryland and the mother and child were lo-
cated at the airport in Jacksonville.

In Crash
By Jacob Bembry

Miraculously, no one was in-
jured in a two-car accident that saw
the driver of one vehicle charged
with careless driving and one of his
passengers arrested on Monday,
Nov. 9, at 5:45 a.m. on Interstate 10.
According to a Florida Highway
Patrol report, Christopher G. Cham-
blis, 29, of Atlantic Beach, was east-
bound in a 2005 Chevrolet four-door,
on 1-10 near the 251-mile post. He
was traveling at a high rate of speed
in the inside lane.
At the same time, Timothy R.
Role, 51, of Panama City, was travel-
ing east on I-10 in a 2007 Toyota four-
door.
Chamblin failed to see Role
ahead in time to slow to a safe speed.
Chamblin went partially into the
median and back onto the road,
sideswiping Role's car on its right
side.
Chamblin's car continued out of
control, going onto the south of the
roadway and striking a dirt em-
bankment with the undercarriage
of the vehicle.
Capt. Pate of the Fish and
Wildlife Commission came upon the
crash after it happened. He called
for the Madison County Sheriff's
Office to respond. Sgt. Art Deno and

Ethel Rosalie Solomon Mason
Thomas was born on August 31, 1922 to the late
Bub Mason and Alberta Solomon Mason, in
Madison County
Ethel resided in Madison all of her life and
attended the public school, Madison County
Training School of Madison County
Ethel received Christ at an early age. She
was taught how to love Jesus and her fellowman
by her mother, Alberta, Auntie Mary and Cousin
Bengal Solomon very early in life at Beulah Star
Holiness Church. She later joined the same
church until her health failed and prevented her
from attending church. She served as Deaconess
Thomas under the leadership of Elder Bill
Joshua. Ethel was a gracious and giving person,
who for many years worked in many capacities
of the church.
Ethel met and married in Holy Matrimony
to the love of her life and sweetheart, Samuel
Thomas, whom most people called "Nokey," in
Madison on February 22, 1942. To this union,
eight children were born. Four of them preceded
her in death, included a beloved son, Simmie
Charles Thomas, who was known by many
Ethel began her work experience at Lucile's
Dress Shop, owned by Buford and Lucile Selman.
A few years later, she transferred to their home
to help in rearing their children, Roberta, Wiley
and Mary Ellen. Later in years, Susan (deceased)
and Bill came along. She was their nanny, but
was like a second mom to them. She took charge
of their home and performed all duties for the
Selmans while they tended the store. Tommy
Greene entered into Ethel's life after he married
Mary Ellen. Ethel worked untiringly for Tommy
and Mary Ellen to help in raising their children,
Harvey William and Emerald. Ethel spent a life-
time of being a fantastic mother, cook and
preparing meals for both families.
Ethel was a very quiet, gentle and loving
woman. She enjoyed cooking, helping, and doing
whatever she could for anyone. She truly loved
her children and always wanted the best for
them. She was very poised and gracious. She
was a member of many organizations: The
Household of Ruth, Heroines of Jericho, East-
ern Star, Pallbearers Society #260 and #52,
where she held many offices, including Presi-
dent and Secretary She was crowned Queen sev-
eral times for the Household of Ruth. She was
very creative and enjoyed reading and writing.
Her favorite color was pink. Her favorite Scrip-
tures were Psalms 27, 51, 100 and 121. Her fa-
vorite songs were "What a Friend We Have in
Jesus," "Father, I Stretched My Hands to Thee"
and her favorite foods were collard greens and
pigs' feet.
Deaconess Ethel slipped away quietly dur-
ing the early morning hours on November 7,
2009, on the birthday of her firstborn daughter,
Shirley, following a brief illness at Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital in Tallahassee.
Left to cherish her sweet spirit, her precious
memories, her legacy and untiring work, are her
four loving daughters, Shirley T. Barfield (Rev.
Dr. Charlie), Marva T. Hubbard (Robert), Margo
T. Gill and Susie T. Flores (Andrew), all of Madi-
son; one daughter-in-law, Valerie H. Thomas,
Madison; two step-children, Larry Martin

Thanks For Supporting


The Lee Library


Dear Editor:
First let me thank
all those that have con-
tributed to the Lee
Public Library Project
and you to the Madi-
son County Carrier
for valuable assis-
tance in promoting the
project.
I understand how
difficult it is try raise
money in bad times
but on behalf of the
Friends of the Lee Li-
brary Fundraising
Committee I wanted to
reach out to those who
still might want to
help with this impor-
tant project.
I grew up in Lee,
and am fortunate to be
living in Lee this fall
and am the President
of the Friends of the
Lee Library My wife,
Midge and I have sup-
ported Libraries in
the Tallahassee and
Thomasville commu-
nities and felt a need
to help our "home"
Lee have a Library.
Several like mind-
ed folks have formed
The Friends of the Lee
Public Library, a
501(c) 3 not-for-profit
organization whose
only purpose is to help
raise money for the
Lee Library and pro-
vide communication
to the members. We
need contributions for
new furniture and
books as the cost of
the building was fund-
ed with a $500,000
grant from the state
and a $500,000 match
by Madison County.
The Library is a
partnership of many
organizations. The


Madison County
School District has
leased the land to
Madison County who
is the owner of the
Building. The County
has provided funding
in its budget for the li-
brary and staff. The
Town of Lee has
waived permitting,
impact and inspection
fees and assisted with
utility hookups. Many
service clubs and busi-
ness have joined our
efforts with donations.
However we still need
more partners, big and
small.
The Friends
Fundraising commit-
tee has been meeting
every month since
June and has raised
over $35,000 and we
are almost to our goal
of $40,000. Your check
will help give us that
final push we need to
complete our fundrais-


ing and launch the
Rocket!
Please go to our
website and print out
the contribution form.
Please send it in with
your check to P O. Box
40, Lee Florida, 32059.
The web site for the li-
brary is

n.org/srrl/leebrochure

Your support of
the Library will pro-
vide opportunities for


reading which is the
key to education for
the people and most
important the chil-
dren of the Communi-
ty
Be a friend, give

In the Nov. 6, Madison Enterprise-Recorder arti-
cle titled, "County Votes To Buy EMS Property for
$662,000," there is the following statement: "Before
the meeting concluded, the two sides settled on
$662,000."
This statement unintentionally implied the
vote was unanimous. The actual vote was 4-1, with
Commissioner Justin Hamrick voting against the
purchase.

men and women, who have served our country in its
military You are the reason that freedom remains
alive in America.
If you see any of the youth from Midway
Church of God, give them a pat on the back because
they have raised enough money to send 122 150-
minute phone cards to troops in Iraq and
Afghanistan so our military men and women will be
able to phone their families this Christmas. Way to
go, kids! A big thanks also goes out to everyone who
helped contribute to making this possible for them
to do it. The group's next project will be to send care
packages to a troop in Afghanistan.

By Joe Boyles
Today is Veterans
Day, the day we honor
our veteran soldiers,
sailors, airmen, and
marines, living and
dead, former and cur-
rent. Originally, this ob-
servance was known as
Armistice Day, the com-
memoration of the end
of World War I. The
guns finally fell silent
across Europe on the
11th hour of the 11th
day of the 11th month of
1918 after four years and
three months of car-
nage and bloodshed.
The Great War, the war
to end all wars had re-
sulted in some ten mil-
lion deaths. As the
soldiers headed home,
they carried influenza
with them to every cor-
ner of the earth that
would result in another
forty million deaths
over the winter months.
World War I and its
aftermath was a tragedy
of untold proportions.
It began because of a
mistake in communica-
tions and mobilization
that once begun, could
not be reversed. A web
of treaties led one na-
tion after another to
join the conflict. Within
a month of the war be-
ginning in August 1914,
the antagonists began to
dig in. Trench warfare
ensued. The western
front, which stretched
more than 500 miles
from the English Chan-
nel to Switzerland, nev-
er moved more than ten
miles in any direction
over the next four years.
In the cold, muddy
trenches of Europe, mil-
lions would perish.
If you are interested
in this topic, I would
recommend two books
by the late Barbara
Tuchman: The Proud
Tower about the old or-
der of Europe before the
war; and The Guns of
August about the first
month of the war. Guns
of August won the
Pulitzer Prize.


In the spring of
1917, America entered
the war. By this time,
the armies of Europe
were essentially spent,
exhausted by the horror
and carnage of trench
warfare. France's army
actually mutinied dur-
ing this year the
troops literally refused
to fight under their cor-
rupt leadership. When a
million American
doughboys arrived on
the battlefields the next
year, they tipped the bal-
ance of the war in favor
of the Allies.
In response to the
idiocy of this type of
warfare, the tacticians
during the interwar
years who served as
young officers during
the Great War began to
experiment with ma-
neuver warfare. To-
day's modern warfare
can trace its roots to
these military thinkers.
Germany sued for
an armistice in Novem-
ber 1918 based on a
peace plan proposed by
Woodrow Wilson. At the
ensuing Paris confer-
ence the following
spring, Wilson's plan
was rejected by France
and England and the al-
lies pulled the rug out
from under the Ger-
mans. The Versailles
Treaty is a fascinating
and important topic to
study, not only because
its failures led directly
to another, larger world
war, but also because it
set the borders from
many modern Eastern
European and Middle
Eastern nations.
World War I de-
stroyed the old, decay-
ing order of Europe.
Four empires were de-


stroyed by the conflict:
the Hohenzollerns in
Germany; the Haps-
burgs in Austria; the Ro-
manovs in Russia; and
the Ottomans in Turkey
In retrospect, maybe
this terrible war was
necessary after all to
hasten the demise of the
rotten and corrupt old
order.
To remember the
American sacrifice in
World War I, Armistice
Day was created which
eventually gave way to
Veterans Day where we
honor all of the military
men and women past
and present who have
served our nations'
armed forces. Veterans
Day is often confused
with Memorial Day
which comes in May
and commemorates
those who have paid the
ultimate sacrifice to pro-
tect our nation's liberty
and freedoms.
On this date, we
honor those who have
served in our nation's
military Most haven't
gone into battle, but
they were ready to if
called. Many served
overseas, protecting our
interests and peace.
Some battled against
our nation's enemies in
Europe, the Pacific, Ko-
rea, Vietnam, the Per-
sian Gulf, and many
other far-flung places.
Many of our mod-
ern veterans are serving
overseas. Quite a few
are battling Muslim ex-
tremists in Iraq and
Afghanistan. These vol-
unteers are the finest
young mean and women
we have ever produced
and deserve our honor
and salute. God Bless
America.

Former Dixie

County Attorney

Convicted of

Fraud, Money

Laundering
Thomas F Kirwin, United States Attorney for
the Northern District of Florida announced the
conviction of Joseph Lander, formerly the coun-
ty attorney for Dixie County, of five counts of
mail fraud and 11 counts of money laundering, in
connection with his involvement in an invest-
ment fraud scheme and a separate scheme to de-
fraud the citizens of Dixie County
Evidence introduced at trial established that
between the fall of 2005 and July 2009, Lander ex-
ecuted a scheme to defraud and to deprive the cit-
izens of Dixie County and others of the
intangible right to his honest services. Specifi-
cally, while acting as County Attorney, Lander
fraudulently demanded and received payment of
an $820,000 performance bond from developers
having business before Dixie County At the time
Lander demanded payment of the performance
bond, he knew that no bond was required and
had no authority to personally accept payment of
the bond, which was deposited into Lander's law
firm account. Lander then spent more than
$300,000 of the money on luxury items and other
personal expenses.
In addition, evidence at trial established that
Lander also defrauded private investors of more
than $400,000 that he fraudulently induced them
to invest in a retail vitamin and health supple-
ment venture.
Following forfeiture proceedings conducted
at the conclusion of the case, the jury also issued
a special verdict forfeiting Lander's ownership
interest in the Dixie County Advocate newspaper
in Cross City, Florida.
Lander faces a maximum sentence of 20
years' imprisonment on each of the mail fraud
convictions, and a maximum sentence of 10
years' imprisonment on each of the money laun-
dering convictions. Sentencing is scheduled for
January 4, 2010.
Mr. Kirwin commended the dedication of the
Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement, whose investi-
gation led to the convictions in this case. The
case was prosecuted by Assistant United States
Attorneys Gregory McMahon and Brett Meltzer.

Members of the Class of 1966 stand on the banks of the Withalacoochee River


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison High
School Classes of 1965,
1966 and 1967 will hold a
combined class reunion
beginning Wednesday,
Nov. 11, and ending Sun-
day, Nov. 15.
Frank Argenbright,
of the Class of 1966, who
is helping pay for the
event, said that his class
has been holding re-
unions every five years.


This year, they have
added two extra classes to
the event.
"What we've found,"
he said, "is that the hard-
est group to get to show
up is the group from
Madison. I want to prove
you can go back in time
and relive the best days of
our lives. Many people
have forgotten the close
memories of people they
haven't seen in years."
Argenbright said


that he had heard people
say they didn't show up
for reunions in the past
because they had gain
weight, or lost hair or
their hair had turned
gray
"It's happened to all
of us," he said.
The fun will begin on
Wednesday, Nov. 11, with
a covered dish dinner at
Ashley and Martha Beg-
gs' barbecue pavilion, be-
side their home.


On Thursday, Nov. 12, down on Sunday, Nov. 15,
Ken's Barbecue will cater as classes will meet for a
a delicious meal at Jelly- brunch at Divine Events
stone Park, beginning at at 9 a.m. to say their
5:30 p.m. Guests will be farewells.


If anyone graduated
with these classes and
hasn't signed up yet,
please attend and pay at
the door.


Members of the Class of 1965 enjoy a picnic at Blue Springs.

Peers Praise Eleanor Pettis At Retireml


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Because hospitals are associat-
ed with illness, injury and big bills,
they are typically avoided wherev-
er possible. However, when circum-
stances require dealing with a
hospital, it is often the attitudes of
the personnel that set the entire
tone of the visit. That said, few set a
better tone, or lead by example,


than does Eleanor Pettis, who was
recently praised by peers during
her retirement party
On Thursday Oct. 29, adminis-
trators, associates, family and
friends, dropped by the cafeteria to
wish Eleanor well and enjoy a few
snacks from the tasty buffet laid out
in her honor. The afternoon gave
each a chance to share a few stories,
as well as recall a laugh or two ex-


changed over the last 12 years since
she joined Madison County Memo-
rial Hospital.
After joining the hospital,
Eleanor performed administrative
duties in the clinic, and was later
Administrative Assistant to the
hospital CEO.
"Eleanor will be missed. Her
performance was excellent and her
attitude toward work and the peo-
ple around her was
incredible. She is a
real class act," CEO
David Abercrombie
I0 stated.
MCMH has
served the county
for years and is now
I looking to a major
expansion in the
near future. While
Eleanor won't be on
staff at that time,
her contribution to
that process have
been praised as
well.
It is the com-


catered by Shelby's. The menu consisted of Fried chick-
en, green beans, salad and desert.
After lunch it was on to more business and welcom-
ing new guests and members. The winner of "Garden of
the Month" was announced and this month's winners
are Howard and Carolyn Edwards, who resides on
Bunker Street in Madison.
Rosie Leggett spoke briefly about her trip to the dis-
trict meeting and informed club members that their club
received an award for having the most new members.
Recognized for their hard work was Eula Donaldson
and Leslie Joiner, who are new members to the club, but
have been a vital part of the youth gardens. Donaldson
and Joiner took the time out with children in Greenville
and assisted in planting a garden.
The club took time to also recognize Terry and Joyce
Webb for being Farm Bureau's Conservation Farmer of
the Year and JoAnna Booth for her research paper on
"Wildflowers In Florida

the very best with much love,
laughter, and hugs galore lighting
their exciting new path!"
Recently married to Larry Pet-
tis, the couple looks forward to a
newlywed retirement, complete
with lots of great travel and even
greater memories. As far as her
hospital pals, it was very evident
that the love flowed both ways.
"It was an absolute joy to work
with these fine people. I take away
the love, support and graciousness
they showed me," Eleanor said.

Vote In Honor Of A Veteran


Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Michael Curtis, November 6, 2009
In recognition of the sacrifice made by all veterans, Jada Woods-Williams, Supervisor of Elections for Madison County, reminds
all to "Vote in Honor of a Vet." She is joining voting officials around the state who note all citizens should exercise their right to vote,
as it came with the high price of freedom. Pictured, front row left to right, are: Marianne Green (husband, William H. Green, Navy 56-
86); Brooks Sargent (Army 50-56); Oliver Bradley (Army, 68-71); and Jada Woods-Williams (father, Johnnie Woods, Vietnam veteran).
Pictured, back row left to right, are: Jack McClellan (Army, 75-80 & National Guard, 80-04); Billy Washington (Army, 95-99 & National
Guard 99-04); and Catharine Wren (Army, 44-46).

Many have heard the declaration that,
"Freedom isn't free!" So, as veterans through-
out the United States are recognized each Vet-
erans Day in addition to those recognized on
Memorial Day for making ultimate sacrifice
in military service, citizens are reminded that
the measure of honoring these men and
women is how that freedom is exercised. They
are reminded to show their patriotism by sup-
porting and participating in the establishment
those veterans fought to protect.
Among those actions, a resident of the
United States can undertake to demonstrate


good citizenship, perhaps no right is greater
than the right to vote. In Madison County, and
throughout the nation, voting is arguably the
measure that separates America from those
powers she has opposed so capably through
the decades.
In recognition of this continued priority,
Madison County Supervisor of Elections Jada
Woods-Williams has joined several of her
counterparts in the state by launching the
"Vote in Honor of a Vet" campaign. Names,
pictures and biographies of veterans in Madi-
son County will be gathered for a Wall of Hon-
or in the Courthouse Annex and for an album
that will be on display at the Supervisor of


Elections office.
A daughter of Vietnam veteran Johnnie
Woods, Jada Woods-Williams stands strong for
veterans everywhere and hopes this cam-
paign will not only add registered voters, but
also create additional awareness of the sacri-
fice and bravery displayed by veterans in serv-
ice of their country The biography form and
simple registration process can be performed
at the Supervisor of Elections Office, which is
located in the Madison County Courthouse
Annex, located at 229 SW Pinckney Street in
Madison. The phone number is (850) 973-6507.

Greenville Vet Receives



Special Recognition


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Fourth Congressional District
Vietnam-era veterans received cer-
tificates of Special Recognition
from Congressman Ander Cren-
shaw in a ceremony at Naval Air
Station Jacksonville. Among
those recognized was John E.
Regul, a Vietnam War veteran
now residing in Greenville.
"Vietnam veterans served
our country with distinction dur-
ing one of our most tumultuous
times as a nation," said Cren-
shaw. "They answered the call of
duty, but when they returned
home, many did not receive the
recognition they properly de-
served. These brave individuals
helped fight for freedom and
democracy at a time when their
country needed them, and this
ceremony will help show our ap-
preciation."
During his service from 1966-
68, Specialist Four Regul distin-
guished himself on several
occasions, receiving two Purple
Hearts, the Army Commendation
Medal for Heroism, and a Bronze
Star. The heroism citation states:
"For heroism in connection
with military operations against
a hostile force: Specialist Four


Regul distinguished himself by
heroic actions on 22 June 1967, in
the Republic of Vietnam. Special-
ist Regul was on an ambush pa-
trol, which was attacked while
moving into position. Specialist
Regul received a head wound im-
mediately and was given medical
attention. While receiving aid,
Specialist Regul noticed an in-
crease in the volume of fire and
he returned to his squad to assist
in clearing the enemy position
and evacuating the wounded. Af-
ter the enemy was driven off and
the other men were treated, Spe-
cialist Regul returned to the
medics where he received further
treatment. Specialist Regul's ac-
tions are in keeping with the
highest traditions of the military
service and reflect great credit
upon himself, his unit, the 25th
Infantry Division, and the United
States Army."
Regul, now 62, noted how much
he enjoys the peace and beauty of
Madison County, where he retired
in 1999. His service, along with all
the men and women of Madison
County who have served their coun-
try, are further honored this Veter-
an's Day, November 11, 2009.

SCHOOL


MCHS Future Business Leders f


Americi (FBLA) Attend District RMlgy


Members who attended the District Rally at FAMU are, from left to right: Je-
remiah Quick, Jessica Lowe and Jonathan Mendez. Not pictured is Jacklyn Wirtz.


Mike Radel of the
Career and Technical
Education Business
Department reinstated
MCHS FBLA Charter
#3304 with State and
National FBLA on No-
vember 3.
Principal Ben
Killingsworth gave the
approval of reinstate-
ment. Radel stated that
the he was excited that
the school's charter for
FBLA was renewed
and Robin Smith of
the Career and Techni-
cal Education (CTE),
Family, Career and
Community Leaders of
America (FCCLA), pro-
vided constant encour-
agement in bringing
back this club, since it
relates so much with
the courses taught by
the business depart-
ment.
Radel stated: "We


are currently only four
members strong, but
we will grow and be an
active group within
our school and commu-
nity. Jessica Lowe,
FBLA President, is a
senior whose "take-
charge attitude"
brought these three
students into this
group based on their
abilities in business
technology. Each mem-
ber demonstrates such
a great leadership and
teamwork qualities
that I'm so impressed
that these are the lead-
ers of tomorrow."
These MCHS FBLA
students recently at-
tended a District chal-
lenge competition at
Tallahassee, Florida
A&M University Busi-
ness Department, and
did well in answering
questions about na-


tional and state level.
Jeremiah Quick
won a prize for answer-
ing an important ques-
tion from the panel on
current events.
Radel stated: "Our
next step is to get in-
volved with the com-
munity and locate
sponsorship in helping
our students achieve
that potential business
status. We are looking
for businesses that will
provide guidance to
our members of this
MCHS organization,
and all we ask is for is
your time."
Radel is also the
Co-Director of
MCHS/High-Tech. He
works with Mary
Coody, Director, in as-
sisting students in
reaching their goals
and aspiration while
attending MCHS.

SCHOOL


Town Hall Meeting Promotes Parent Participation


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The strategic plan-
ning process taking
place in the Madison
County School District
is acquiring the commu-
nity involvement neces-
sary to build an effective
and sustainable im-
provement plan. Accord-
ingly, The Road Map to
Madison County
Schools' Future, which
is the name of its five-
year strategic planning
project, now calls for a
series of town hall meet-
ings to promote and in-
corporate community
input. The first of these
four events was conduct-
ed on Nov. 2, at Lee Ele-
mentary School.
Organizers, staff,
parents and student
leaders gathered in the
school cafeteria to dis-
cuss a variety of topics,
several from areas of fo-
cus brought out during
three community-wide
leadership workshops.
With the workshops
completed, the town hall
meetings were sched-
uled to obtain additional
key input, where par-
ents are urged to share
their opinions. In the
end, all agreed the ex-
change was productive,
and that continued par-
ticipation was essential.
Among the Lee per-
sonnel attending,
JoAnn Kuhl, student ad-
visory council member
for the school and the
district, noted her posi-
tive impression of the
process. These senti-
ments were echoed by
Kathy McCollum, who
serves as instructional
coach and RtI (Response
to Intervention) coordi-
nator at Lee Elementary
School.
"We're making ad-
justments that are mak-
ing a difference, and this
planning process will
definitely support and
enhance those activi-
ties. I was particularly


District and school staff joined parent volunteers and concerned citizens at the Nov. 2 town hall meeting held at Lee Elementary
School. Among parents, school leaders and community members attending this first of four town hall meetings, pictured left to right,
are: SAC member JoAnn Kuhl, Jonas Chirinos, Will Floyd, Kassidy Robinson, Tammy Floyd, Daniella Floyd, Lee Elementary Principal
Jack McClellan, Katie Knight, Superintendent Lou Miller, Lee SAC President Christi Annett, School Board member Bart Alford, and In-
structional Coach Kathy McCollum.
impressed by the thor-
oughness of the infor-
mation presented,"
McCollum said.


Superintendent of
Schools Lou Miller
holds school improve-
ment as a top priority,
even among those
schools already making
great strides. Miller also
firmly asserts that par-
ticipation in the plan-
ning process is critical.
Then, as planning turns
to action, the end goal of
students reading on or
above grade level in
addition to sustaining
graduation rates above
state average is attain-
able.
"It is important for
our county to collective-
ly accept the responsi-
bility for the education
of our youth and put
emphasis on the value of
a good educa-
tion. Graduation from
high school should be
expected for every child
and the question should
be, 'After graduation,
will you continue your
education in college or
technical school, or be
ready to work?'"


A panel of community educators answered questions during the town hall meeting held Nov. 2 at Lee El-
ementary School. Panel Members (L-R): Paula Waller; Superintendent Lou Miller; Gwen Hubbard, Director
Federal Programs; Dr. John Grosskopf, President North Florida Community College; Julia Waldrep, Director
Teaching and Learning; Dr. Cheryl James, Coordinator Grants & School Improvement.


Paula Waller, con-
sultant to the district
and former executive di-
rector of the Panhandle
Area Education Consor-
tium (PAEC), praised
the community partici-
pation. She further not-
ed that while these
projects take time, the
roadmap was definitely
taking shape, and that


Regarding these
teams, Miller added,
"We really want parents,
community members
and business leaders to
sign up and serve on one
of the Action Planning
Teams. Each of the '5
Big Ideas' will have a
team to develop strate-
gies for achieving the
goal and we need a good

five ideas to which
Miller is referring in-

uation rates and all

Frankly, many challenge

Question:
Is denture adhesive dangerous?

Answer:
I have to admit I never thought I would be
giving you this answer. It is not likely to be hurt
by denture adhesive, but I have now learned it
is possible. Sadly enough there is a case
which has happened within the last year that
the suspected cause of death was denture
adhesive. The case is still under investigation
and it may be a while before all the details are
released. What I have read about the case is
that the patient was using an entire tube of
denture adhesive every day. Much of the
adhesive was swallowed by the patient to the
point that the patient swallowed a toxic amount
of adhesive.
It is one of those too much of a good thing
can be bad. Even water can cause problems
if you have too much of it. So if you have an "ill
fitting temporary denture" or a very old denture
with a poor fit, I would suggest you get a new
denture or have your existing denture relined.
If you still need to use a bunch of denture
adhesive because your jaws have shrunk, look
into implants to hold in the dentures.

FAMU Strikes Again

In Crucial Road Game


MCHS Volleyball

Produces Excellent Season


By Guest Writer, Ashley Parrish
The Florida A & M Rattlers slith-
ered past the competition on the road
31-28, as Trevor Scott booted a 32-yard
field goal in overtime to secure the win
Saturday, against Morgan State Uni-
versity in Baltimore, Maryland in
Hughes Stadium.
The Rattlers took sole control of
second place in the Mid Eastern At-
lantic Conference, with this crucial
win over Morgan State, who was tied
with FAMU prior to the game. Florida
A& M's Curtis Pulley put the Rattlers
ahead 28-21 in the fourth, but the
Bears attacked back six minutes later
with a 52-yard scoring drive from MSU
quarterback Carlton Jackson to Ed-
win Baptiste.
Although the Rattlers struck early
(1:50) in the game with a 16-yard pass
to Kevin Elliot, the Bears held their
own until the final call. The Bears
thinking they had gotten the 1st down
would only be disappointed to find
they truly hadn't.
In the end, a sole field goal kept
the Rattlers on top.
"It was an adrenaline fueled expe-


rience, I looked at it as just another
kick to make for the team," Scott de-
scribed as his mindset in the final mo-
ments of the game.
Scott, a second year starter, has al-
ways had a knack for kicking. Gaining
experience from a soccer background,
fate would have it that Scott ended up
in FAMU after transferring from USE
Proving to be a versatile asset to the
team, Scott has continued to put
points on the board.
The Rattlers could have ended the
game in regulation, but an unsports-
manlike conduct call pushed the Rat-
tlers out of field goal range with 12
seconds left to go. Gary Albury, picked
a "Hail Mary" with no time left on the
clock, forcing the game to continue
into overtime.
Pulley finished the day with 231
rushing yards on 20 carries. He also
completed 13 of his 22 pass attempts
for 174 yards. Jackson completed 16
of his 22 tosses for 207 yards and two
scores. The Rattlers host the Aggies
of North Carolina A & T next at
Bragg Memorial Stadium on Satur-
day, Nov. 7.

The Madison County High School
Volleyball team traveled to Pensacola
in hopes of cruising past the quarter-
finals, but came to a halt by Pensacola


Catholic in a tournament. Pensacola
stopped Madison by winning all three
sets.
Madison has been represented in
the quarterfinals for the past five
years. This year's team produced an
astounding record of 14-6 under the
leadership of Coach Sonja Bass.
The 2009 MCHS volleyball team
has produced some great players. The
Tallahassee Democrat recently high-
lighted two of the senior players,
Brooke Bezick and Emily Hentges,
who left an outstanding record on the
court.
The Cowgirls that make up the
varsity team are: Emily Hentges, Kay-
la Sapp, Emily Webb, Meghan Maults-
by, Rachel McClellan, Brooke Bezick,
Abby Mercer, Skyler Hanna, Tiffany
Richardson and Courtney Williams.
Head Coach Sonja Bass was re-
cently recognized by her former high
school, Berrien County High School in
Alopoha, Ga., where her jersey num-
ber was retired by the softball team.
Hats off to the Cowgirls for an ex-
cellent season.

What Should You Do with 401(k)
after a Layoff?
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones


As you're no doubt aware, the long and deep
recession has resulted in the highest unemployment
rate in decades. But if you've been laid off, or if you
fear a layoff may soon be coming, you're less interest-
ed in statistics than in your immediate financial future.
How will you get by until you land a new job?
This is a scary question, of course. And it can
cause you to look at all your available financial
resources including your 401(k), which may well be
the largest single financial resource you have.
But before you cash out your 401(k), make sure
you understand what's involved. Your former employer
is required to withhold 20% of your account balance to
prepay federal taxes. Also, all your 401(k) proceeds
will be taxed as ordinary income. And if you're under
age 59V2 when you liquidate your 401(k), you may also
be subject to a 10 percent penalty. And worst of all, the
money may not be available to you when you retire.
Obviously, if you have no other financial
resources, you may have no choice but to tap into your
401(k) plan.
However, if you can find an alternative way to tide
yourself over until you're working again, you may be
better off in the long run by not cashing in your plan.
If you decide against the "cash-out" option, what can
you do with your 401(k)? Here are two possibilities:
Keep the money in your former employer's
plan. If your former employer permits it, you may able
to leave your money in your 401(k). You won't have to
pay any immediate taxes, and your money can contin-
ue to grow tax deferred. But you may no longer be able
to add funds to your account.
Roll your money over to an IRA. If you roll over
your 401(k) assets to an IRA, you'll avoid paying
immediate taxes, and your money can continue to
grow tax deferred. Furthermore, you can fund your IRA
with many types of investments, as opposed to a
401(k), which may offer only a handful of choices. And
when you can afford it, you can make additional con-
tributions to your IRA. Also, when you retire, you may
find that an IRA gives you more flexibility in making
withdrawals than a 401(k).
While there are some clear benefits to keeping
your 401(k) with your former employer or moving it to
an IRA, neither choice helps you answer the question
of how you'll make it, financially speaking, until you're
working again. If you've built up a cash cushion in the
preceding years, you can turn to it now, of course. And
if you've created an investment portfolio outside your
401 (k), take a close look at it.You can consider adjust-
ing your investment mix to add more income-produc-
ing investments, if appropriate. Keep in mind that your
portfolio should reflect your risk tolerance, long-term
goals and time horizon.
A layoff is never easy and it can force you to
make some tough choices. But if you can help protect
your 401(k) today, you'll be helping yourself tomorrow.
