Since joining the Town of Lee as clerk
in 1998, Cheryl Archambault has booked
success after success. So, it came as no sur-
prise in 2000 that the town council voted to
amend its charter to provide for a town
manager, to which she was appointed in
August of that year.
Slow to accept praise but quick to give
it, Archambault shares her talents with or-
ganizations throughout the region, includ-
ing the Madison County Development
Council and the Florida League of Cities,
among other official and civic roles. In fact,
her reputation for getting the job done on
1e1


time and under budget has made her an as-
set of rare comparison.
The following is an excerpt of the mile-
stones and projects she introduced, ac-
quired and/or managed for the "Little But
Proud" town of Lee:
Annexation of 750 acres, which now ex-
tends the city limits out to the interstate
Building Blocks Summer Camp
Creation of a Business Incubator
Town named Florida Rural Communi-
ty of the Year
And then there are the grants the town
has received since Archambault has been
Town Manager:
DEP $1.2 million for new wells & wa-
ter line extensions
DOT $178,000 for sidewalks
FRDP $50,000 for Blair Park
EMPA $50,000 for fire department
building construction
USDA $50,000 for fire department
building construction

This week's question: Are you keeping up with the coverage
of the health care overhaul?
To view and participate in our weekly online poll, visit www.greenepublishing.com.


Dear Savvy Senior
The television program "60 Minutes" recently did a dis-
turbing segment on the problem of Medicare fraud, which has
raised some questions for me. What are the steps Medicare re-
cipients need to take if they suspect fraud, and what can be
done to prevent it from happening?
Suspicious Charlie
Dear Charlie:
Medicare fraud has been a big problem for many years,
but because of the national health care debate going on right
now it has gotten a lot more attention lately Here's what you
should know.
Medicare Fraud
It's estimated that Medicare fraud cost taxpayers a stag-
gering $60 billion a year, making it one of the most profitable
crimes in America. In a nut shell, Medicare fraud happens
when Medicare is purposely billed by greedy doctors, shady
health care providers or scam artists for services or supplies
that were never provided or received. While there are many
types of Medicare fraud, one of the most common schemes is
phony billing for durable medical equipment such as wheel-
chairs, walkers, orthopedic braces, oxygen generators, breath-
ing machines, air mattresses and more.
What You Can Do
The best way for you to spot Medicare fraud is to review
your Medicare Summary Notices (MSN) or your Explanation
of Medicare Benefits (EOMB) whenever you get them. Be on
the lookout for things like charges for medical services or
equipment you didn't get, dates of services and charges that
look unfamiliar, or if you were billed for the same thing twice.
See Medicare.gov/basics/SummaryNo-tice.asp for help on
reading your MSN.
If you do spot any unusual or questionable charges, your
first step is to contact your doctor or health care provider. The
charge may just be a simple billing error. If, however, you can't
resolve the problem with the provider, your next step is to re-
port the questionable charges to Medicare at 800-633-4227. And
if you suspect fraud, contact the Department of Health and
Human Services Office of Inspector General Fraud hotline at
800-447-8477. It's also a good idea to report it to the Federal
Trade Commission's ID Theft hotline at 877-438-4338.
When you call, have the MSN or EOMB with the ques-
tionable charges handy because you'll need to give them: your
Medicare card number; the physician, supplier, and/or facili-
ty name where the service was supposedly provided; the date
the service was rendered; the payment amount approved and
paid by Medicare; as well as the reason you think Medicare
shouldn't have paid. And as an incentive, if the suspicious ac-
tivity you report turns out to be fraud, you may be eligible for
a reward of up to $1,000.
How to Protect Yourself
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and
the U.S. Department of Justice also offers a variety of tips to
help you protect yourself from becoming a victim of Medicare
fraud, including:
Guard your Medicare and Social Security numbers.
Treat them like you would treat your credit cards. If your
Medicare card is lost or stolen, report it immediately to Social
Security (800-772-1213) who will send you a replacement.
Be suspicious of anyone who offers you free medical
equipment or services and then requests your Medicare num-
ber.
Don't let anyone borrow or pay to use your Medicare ID
card.
Walk away if people approach you in parking lots,
shopping centers, or other public areas and offer free services,
groceries, transportation, or other items in exchange for your
Medicare number.
Hang up the phone if someone calls you claiming to be
conducting a health survey and asks for Medicare number.
Don't give your information to telephone marketers
who claim to be from Medicare or Social Security asking for
payment over the phone or Internet.
Savvy Tips: If you could use some extra help identifying
or reporting Medicare fraud or resolving your Medicare
billing errors, contact your state SMP program (formerly
called Senior Medicare Patrol) which provides free one-on-one
counseling and assistance. Visit www.smpresource.org or call
877-808-2468 for contact information. And for more tips and in-
formation on Medicare fraud visit StopMedicareFraud.gov.

Merry Christmas, everyone. I hope that every-
one remembers the reason we celebrate this year is
the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I also
hope everyone stays healthy, warm, happy and has
plenty to eat during this season.
I'm sorry to see Cheryl Archambault resign as
town manager. Cheryl is a really nice person and I
hope she does well wherever her future endeavors
may take her.
My uncle, Carlton Bembry, died Saturday, Dec.
18, at 1 a.m. after a long battle with cancer. Local sur-
vivors include my father, Bobby Bembry, and my
aunt, Nina Dodd. Remember Uncle Carlton's chil-
dren, grandchildren and wife in your prayers.
Also, continue to remember my father, as well.
He is still not back at 100 percent. Also, remember
my Aunt Nina, who underwent surgery in
Gainesville last Monday, Dec. 14.
Happy birthday wishes go out to Joyce Slaven,
who celebrates her birthday Thursday, Dec. 24.
Sharon Smith will celebrate her birthday on Christ-
mas Day. George Rutherford and Terry Studebaker
will celebrate their birthdays on Monday, Dec. 28.
Happy birthday to all of you.
That's all the news for this week. Have a great
week and a beautiful forever. May God bless each
and every one of you.

Email Customer Service

Why is it that when you have to email a
company's customer service staff, that
no matter how much you try to simply
and exactly state what you're com-
plaining about, the reply back always
seems to fixate on the least important
part of your issue, ignoring the central
theme, and giving a totally irrelevant
form letter in response?

I don't think I've been able to resolve
anything meaningful lately in less
than 3 emails from me to clarify the
question and question their answers.
But it's still easier than trying to get
someone on the phone that can under-
stand and speak English...


(Editorial note:
Stray Vectors is the au-
thor's byline for random
thoughts.)
After the 1994 elec-
tions, President Clinton
said "the era of big gov-
ernment is over." Fif-
teen years later, the
unofficial slogan of the
Obama Administration
is "the era of big govern-
ment is back" ... with a
vengeance.
What is the only one
source of renewable fuel
available in the south-
eastern United States to
economically create
electrical energy in the
foreseeable future, and
it isn't wind, solar, hy-
droelectric, or tidal?
The answer is woody
biomass.
I worked on a project
once with an auto execu-
tive who told me she was
a social liberal but fiscal
conservative. I thought
she was nuts how in
the world did she expect
to pay for all of those so-
cial programs she em-
braced.
Obama's approach
to a nuclear-armed Iran
is negotiation, consulta-
tion, and (maybe) sanc-
tions. I'll make a
prediction right now it
won't work.
I hope to live long
enough to see the day
when the environmental
left reverses and decides
we need more carbon
dioxide in the atmos-
phere rather than less.
It will happen; it's just a
matter of when.
I don't understand
why everyone is talking
about a two-state solu-
tion to the Israel-Pales-
tinian dispute. It really
is a three-state solution:
Israel, the Palestinian
Authority and Hamas-
Gaza. Getting this
crowd on the same page
is like herding stray cats
on a flatbed.
We speak a lot about
bias in the mainstream
media, but there are de-
grees of bias. Among


the televised networks,
NBC has taken bias to a
new level. Their cable
affiliate MSNBC is off
the charts.
I'll always remem-
ber the late reporter/
columnist Robert Novak
for this brilliant insight:
'Always love your coun-
try, but never trust your
government."- Chisel it
in stone!
Sometimes I just
don't understand the
justice system. New
York Giants wide receiv-
er Plaxico Burress
stuffed a handgun into
his pants and went to a
local bar. Somehow, he
shot himself in the leg
and now, is going to
prison for two years. I
figured the wound was
punishment enough.
Have you ever
thought about politi-
cians dithering in areas
where they have no ex-
perience? Seems to me
that if they stuck to
things they actually
know, we'd have a lot
fewer and more common
sense laws. For exam-
ple, how many of the so-
called health care
experts in Congress
have one iota of experi-
ence in medical related
fields?
Whatever happened
to bipartisanship? In
the two most important
Congressional votes this
year on Cap and Trade
and Health Care, Democ-
rats have won narrow,
partisan victories. In
fact, the only bipartisan-
ship appears to be in op-
position to Liberals.
The only reason I
look backward is to
learn how to do things
better the next time. It

is a waste of time to
dwell on my mistakes.
What's done is done.
Time to move on.
Have you ever
thought about how peo-
ple profit from a (sup-
posed) crisis?
Politicians profit by
gathering more votes.
Well-connected people
like Al Gore make mil-
lions off their advocacy
Grants and earmarks
line the pockets of their
recipients. And the me-
dia sells more copy
A characteristic of
liberal thinking is, "we
know better." They as-
sume a moral superiori-
ty which translates into
thinking that they know
what is best for the rest
of us. When a liberal
policy has failed in the
past, they assume that
next time, they'll do it
better.
Why is unemploy-
ment considered a lag-
ging indicator? Because
it is cheaper and less
risky for a businessman
to pay overtime than to
hire new employees as
his business begins to
grow out of recession.
Another solution is to
hire a temporary work-
er. Employment will
only begin to grow grad-
ually when business
feels comfortable with
the recovery.
I truly envy Tiger
Woods' golf swing. We'll
leave it at that.
This quote is attrib-
uted to George Burn-
ham, former Suwannee
County Tax Collector:
"If you can't eat it or
wear it, you can't sell it."
That pretty well sums
up the state of the econ-

Trader Indicted For

$1.7 Million Fraud
Thomas E Kirwin, United States Attorney for the Northern District of
Florida, announced that David A. Owen, 60, of Destin, Florida, was arraigned
in federal district court today on a ten-count indictment charging him with
three counts of commodities futures trading fraud, three counts of wire fraud,
and four counts of failure to file federal income tax returns, in violation of Ti-
tle 7, United States Code, Sections 6m, 6n, 6o(1) andl3(a), Title 18, United States
Code, Section 1343, and Title 26, United States Code, Section 7203.
The indictment alleges that Owen, operating a commodity pool known as
"Oasis Futures" since January 2005, fraudulently solicited and accepted at least
$2.2 million from the public to invest in commodity futures. In urging his vic-
tims to invest, Owens falsely stated that he was a licensed certified public ac-
count with expertise and a successful track record in futures trading. He backed
these claims up with fraudulent account statements that falsely reflected profits
on trading when, in fact, no profits had been made. Although Owen returned ap-
proximately $562,000 to investors, his conduct resulted in the loss of $1.7 million
overall.
The indictment also alleges that from 2005 through 2008, Owen willfully
failed to file federal income tax returns even though he earned gross incomes of
approximately $125,573 in 2005, $88,757 in 2006, $98,076 in 2007, and $112,673 in
2008.
Owen faces up to five years' imprisonment on each count of commodity fu-
tures fraud, thirty years' imprisonment on each count of wire fraud, and one
year imprisonment for each count of failure to file federal income tax returns.
United States Magistrate Judge Elizabeth Timothy conducted Owen's ini-
tial appearance at 11:00 a.m. today at the federal courthouse in Pensacola, Flori-
da.
Mr. Kirwin commended the work of the Internal Revenue Service Crimi-
nal Investigation Division, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Commodi-

"During his years
as chief, Rick Davis

in Pinellas Park,
Thomas was one of

In addition to judi-

Central School this year
- also at Pinetta, Lee,

served hundreds of stu-
dents with a variety of
activities, ranging from
sports and activities.
Students, parents, and
school sponsors agree
the program is not only
providing great ser-
vices, but also is re-
sponding to the
consistent complaint,
"There's nothing for
kids to do in Madison

Central School Club
Administrator Gari
Quiroz-Santis was very
pleased to note the pro-
gram made great
strides during its first
months. He also men-
tioned the desire to ex-
pand the basketball
program, but noted they
lacked some resources
to do so.
When asked what
the community might
do to assist, Santis
replied, "We need
equipment and uni-
forms, and some coach-

great."
The Central School

A New Year's Resolution

Well, it's that time of

plan for presents, parties
and resolutions for the

Benjamin Franklin, "Be
at war with your vices,
at peace with your

New Year find you a bet-

everyone to look for
ways to make them-
selves and those around
them better off.
If you are a tobacco
user, this year has hit
you pretty hard, with the
economy being in the
dumps and then with
state and federal taxes
increasing the cost of
your brand of choice by
nearly 50 percent.
How many years
have you decided, "This
is the year I am going to
quit?" But then some-
thing always gets in the
way or holds you back.
At any given time, 70
percent of all tobacco
users say they want to
stop.
Fewer than three in

successful quitting cold
turkey and on their own.

Madison Fire & Rescue Grills For The Community

Members of Madison Fire and Rescue braved the rain to deal with a differ-
ent kind of fire-grilling steaks for members of the department, their families
and community friends. The dinner was held Friday, Dec. 18.
Everyone gathers at the Fire Station in downtown Madison each year at
Christmas time to celebrate another year of unity in protecting the lives and
property of the residents in Madison. City Manager Harold Emrich and Mayor
Jim Stanley were among those present to share the evening with Chief Alfred
Martin and the firefighters of Madison.

Put Unused Vacation Days
to Work in Your 401(k)


Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones

Now that the year is almost over, you may want to
explore some last-minute steps you can take to poten-
tially boost your financial fortunes and improve your
tax returns for 2010. And one good place to look is
your 401 (k).
Your 401(k) is a great retirement savings vehicle. You
typically fund your plan with pretax dollars, so the
more you put in, the lower your taxable income. Plus,
your earnings can grow on a tax-deferred basis, which
means your money can grow faster than if it were
placed in an investment on which you paid taxes every
year. Also, you can spread your 401 (k) dollars among
a range of investments to match your risk tolerance,
time horizon and retirement goals. Clearly, then, it
would be nice to "max out" on your plan each year. But
during difficult economic times, it may not be easy for
you to defer more of your salary into your 401 (k).
Fortunately, there may be a way in which you can
boost your 401 (k) contributions without cutting into
your take-home pay.
Specifically, you may be able to convert any unused
vacation and sick time to your 401 (k) or other employ-
er-sponsored retirement plan, such as a 457(b) or
403(b). Many employers have offered this conversion
option for years, but relatively few employees have
taken advantage of it. Now, however, the Obama
administration has asked the U.S. Department of the
Treasury and the IRS to issue new rulings on the topic
in the hope of getting more people to increase their
retirement savings. And this is an important goal,
because many of us still need to put away much more
money on a regular basis if we're going to enjoy the
type of retirement lifestyle we've envisioned.
The ability to convert vacation or sick time to your
401(k), 403(b) or 457(b) plan can help you make
progress toward that lifestyle. While the conversion
feature won't enable you to exceed the contribution
limit for your plan -which for 2009 is $16,500, or
$22,000 if you're 50 or older it may make it easier
for you to beef up your contributions for this year, par-
ticularly if you have unused vacation or sick time you
can't carry over.
Not all employers are willing or able to turn vacation or
sick hours into retirement plan contributions, so check
with your human resources or benefits office to see if
you can make this move. If it is allowed, though, con-
sider taking action. Once you know how many retire-
ment plan dollars can result from your unused vaca-
tion or sick days, go over your 401(k) or other plan,
perhaps with the help of your financial advisor, to
determine an appropriate allocation of your money. For
example, you may have accounts within your plan that
are currently under-funded. Or you might benefit from
"rebalancing" your plan by adding some new money
into different accounts. Keep in mind, however, that
diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect
against loss.
In any case, consider this opportunity to add to your
retirement plan. The more you save today, the brighter
your outlook could be for tomorrow.

Question: Is it OK with the Tooth
Fairy for Santa Claus to put candy
canes in the children's stockings?

Answer: I am glad you asked
because I know you don't want to see
Santa Claus get in trouble with the
Tooth Fairy. Good News! I have
heard that Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy
and the Easter Bunny are all good
friends. The Tooth Fairy text messages
Santa all the way at the North Pole.
Santa told the Tooth Fairy "What is
Christmas with out candy canes in the
stockings? I leave the children candy
canes so the children will leave me
milk and cookies." The Tooth fairy
said OK for Santa to leave candy canes
as long as Santa told all the parents to
put a new toothbrush in the stockings
to go along with Santa's candy. So all
you parents out there, make sure you
put toothbrushes in the stockings.
Don't let Santa get in trouble with the
Tooth Fairy.

HEALTH & NUTRITION


Surviving The Holidays With Diabetes


According to a recent publication from a dia-
betes and fitness specialist, for those suffering from
diabetes, the holidays can bring about different
memories and emotions. With large helpings of
wonderful food, odd meal times, and wide assort-
ments of dessert, it can be challenging and frus-
trating to managing blood glucose levels. Having to
remind family members, yet again, that "its not
that you can't eat a big slice of grandma's famous
pie, it's that you choose not to in order to keep your
body healthy" can be emotionally draining.
Experiencing this year after year can turn what
was once a cherished holiday into a time of dread.
Certified Diabetes Educators and Diabetes Coaches
at Fit4D.com, a personalized diabetes coaching ser-
vice, knows this does not have to be the case. To
help those with diabetes we have provided some
tips that will help empower them to take back the
holiday season as a time of joy
Planning ahead is key With all the wonderful
holiday food to choose from, be sure to have your
plate planned out in advance to avoid letting your
taste buds take over. This includes desserts. Find
out recipes and carbohydrate content of foods
ahead of time. You might find that you can fit in a
little sliver of every favorite holiday dessert into
your meal, and still stay on track.
Try to plan holiday meals around your normal
meal times instead of snack times.
Keep your carbohydrates spread out through-
out the day, don't save them all for one meal. Re-
member that your body likes consistency with
carbohydrates to process the glucose efficiently and
work properly with your medications. Pack some
leftovers and enjoy the holiday meal again the next
day


Take a walk after your meal to re-energize and
help your body digest and burn off extra calories
from the variety of holiday foods.
Keeping your blood glucose and weight man-
agement goals in mind, try not to go to any holiday
parties or events on an empty stomach. An empty
stomach increases your chances or overeating and
losing track of the carbs and calories.
Appetizers, such as broccoli, carrots, cauli-
flower, and celery, are great low carb, low calorie op-
tions. If you are able to bring an appetizer, present
some fresh veggies and light dip. This will save
your carbs for the main event, the meal. Keep in
mind that sausage and cheese are meats and have a
minimal effect on blood glucose levels when eaten
in moderation, they are full of saturated fat and
calories, so try to keep the portions small.
If you choose to drink during the holidays,
please be safe with regards to carbs, calories, med-
ication, and general wellness. The recommenda-
tion for men is 2 drinks and 1 drink for women per
day One drink is equal to 1 beer, 4 oz wine, or loz
spirits. Some alcoholic beverages contain carbohy-
drates, especially when mixed with sweet mixers,
such as margaritas or soda based drinks, so they
need to be included into your meal plan. Be sure to
wear medication identification, and never drink on
an empty stomach. Alcohol also does not mix well
with some medications, so please check with your
healthcare provider before drinking. Limiting your
alcohol intake will save you calories and not impact
blood glucose levels as much.
Successful holiday meal planning is all about
preparation and balance so enjoy your holiday sea-
son and contact the coaches at Fit4D.com for help
with planning.


Tea Topics


(NAPS)-The next
time you drink to your
health, you may want to
grab a cup of tea. It is a
healthful and refreshing
drink and green tea in
particular provides an-
tioxidants. Studies per-
formed on these
antioxidants indicate
that they may be benefi-
cial in contributing to
the prevention of cer-
tain cancers, assist in
lowering cholesterol and
blood pressure and pos-
sibly fighting off the flu.

Bottled vs. Brewed
There are different
ways to enjoy green tea;
however, some may be
better for you than oth-
ers. Compared to equal
servings of bottled tea,
freshly brewed tea made
from tea bags provides
higher levels of antioxi-
dants, helps protect the
environment by reduc-
ing the number of sin-
gle-use beverage
containers that go into
landfills, and costs up to
five times less than an
equal-size serving of
bottled tea.


Better for the Body
According to the
U.S. Department of
Agriculture, depending
on the type of tea and
bag weight, freshly
brewed tea made with
tea bags can contain up
to 95 percent higher
levels of the antioxi-
dant EGCG compared
to bottled teas. Tea's
naturally occurring an-
tioxidants are sensitive
to heat and oxygen and
can be destroyed dur-
ing the processing,
transportation and
storage of bottled teas.
Also, bottled teas are
often loaded with
sweeteners and other
additives that can elim-
inate antioxidants and
add unwanted calories.
Compared to flavored
bottled teas that have
more than 100 calories
per bottle, freshly
brewed tea, including
flavored tea such as Sal-
ada's Pomegranate
Berry Green Tea or
Strawberry Green Tea,
is typically a zero-
calorie, sugar-free bev-
erage.


Ditch your bottled tea for the real thing: Freshly
brewed tea may be better for your health, your wealth


and the planet.
Better for the Planet
There are nearly 138
billion beverage contain-
ers that end up in land-
fills each year. It has
been estimated by the
Container Recycling In-
stitute that the average
American wastes 425
plastic bottles per year,
resulting in increased
energy consumption,
greenhouse gas emis-
sions and littering.


bags can cost under 50
cents for a 16-ounce serv-
ing.

Consider this: people who volunteer at a charity or
non-profit organization get a "twofer": they help oth-
ers while boosting their own health.
According to research by the Corporation for Na-
tional and Community Service, volunteers as a group
live longer and feel better physically and mentally
than do non-volunteers. The review also suggests peo-
ple who participate in volunteer activity at a younger
age suffer from fewer health issues in their later years,
and those older than 65 seem to gain a new lease on life
by performing good deeds.
"Volunteerism seems to work primarily by en-
hancing life satisfaction and a sense of meaning and
purpose," says Dr. Adam Rindfleisch, an integrative-
medicine practitioner and assistant professor of fami-
ly medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of
Medicine and Public Health. "It may also reduce
chronic pain. I often suggest people with fibromyalgia
and depression get involved in a volunteer activity."
Rindfleisch says while it's hard to determine sci-
entifically if volunteering promotes better health, he
has seen the benefits in his patients who do volunteer.
He adds it doesn't matter if volunteer work is per-
formed at a hospital, school, animal shelter or soup
kitchen: participants are bound to experience positive
results.
"It is not clear to me that any one type of volun-
teering makes a difference, although I believe those ac-
tivities leading to the deepest connections with others
are the most powerful," he says. "My sense is that it is
like cardiovascular exercise: it isn't the specific form
that matters, but rather that you do it in the first
place."
Rindfleisch suggests the good feelings derived
from volunteerism could, for some people, potentially
reduce dependence on medication prescribed for pain
and emotional difficulties.
"I have not seen data as far as changes in medica-
tion use (due to improved health from volunteering),"
he says. "It is possible to say, though, that anything
that leads to enhanced life satisfaction is likely to de-
crease reliance on other interventions, especially
where pain and low mood are concerned."


Lifestyle And Location Can

Add To A Bottom Line


(NAPS)-Increasingly, the quality of
life a community offers is becoming a
factor when executives are deciding
where to locate a business.
Many believe that if a location of-
fers the right business benefits, such as
access to resources, a skilled work force
and transportation, then adding quality
of life factors, such as a low crime rate,
short commutes and access to the out-
doors, can only enhance a company's
bottom line.
Some business owners think the
lifestyle benefits offered by a location
can actually be a business asset for a
number of reasons:
Lower crime rate can mean few-
er losses.
Less pollution can translate
into lower health care costs for employ-
ers and fewer sick days.
Some think it's easier to attract
high-quality employees to a place their
families will enjoy.
Employee retention often goes
up, and there can be an improved work
ethic among workers who are working
in a community where they want to live.
A number of employers con-
tend it's easier to attract a creative, more
innovative workforce who place a high
value on lifestyle.
If you already have developed a
short list of places where you believe
your company will succeed, lifestyle
could be the deciding factor.
For example, when Hewlett-Packard


was looking for a new location to launch
its printer division in the 1970s, a vice
president chose Boise, Idaho, because he
thought the city would be a nice place for
his family to live. While the executive
had already screened the city-and sev-
eral others-for low business costs, he
was able to make lifestyle his final con-
sideration. The printer division would
go on to become one of HP's most prof-
itable business units.
Lifestyle was also an important part
of why the biotech firm Alturas Analyt-
ics stayed in the small city of Moscow,
Idaho, instead of joining the biotech
cluster in California.
"You can't place a value on quality
of life," said Alturas' owner, Robin
Woods. 'And we've found that being in a
smaller place doesn't hamper our ability
to prosper."

lifestyle offered by a location can be a

sons, including employee retention.

I would really like to have a four wheeler I think a blue one
would be cool.
Another thing that I would like to have is an ipod touch. If
I had an ipod, I could listen to hundreds of songs everyday
Lastly, I would like to get a English bulldog. I would name
him Midnight and I could run and play with him.
As you can see Santa I would like to get a ipod, four
wheeler, English bulldog for Christmas. Hope to see you
soon.
Your friend,
Demondre Davis

Rainy Pay Puts Early Halt To Country Christmas

A soggy day may have put an ear-
ly end to the 24th annual Greenville
Country Christmas but not to any of
the merriment and good spirits of the
crowd-goers on Saturday, Dec. 19.
Greenville Country Christmas
had kicked off on Friday evening,
Dec. 18, with a bake-off contest, a gin-
gerbread house contest and caroling
in the park.
Gingerbread house winners in-
cluded Clay Hall, Katelyn Scarboro
and Kendall Hall.
Farmers & Merchants Bank spon-
sored the Gingerbread House contest.
The bakeoff contest was spon-


scored by Elesta Pritchett and Frances
Norris.
Bakeoff contest winners includ-

The live nativity scene was rained
out but children from Greenville Ele-
mentary School rang out Christmas
carols as did the Greenville Baptist
Church Choir.
Refreshments were served on Fri-
day evening at the Senior Citizens
Center.
On Saturday, the opening cere-
monies took place.
Frances Ginn was introduced as
Citizen of the Year. Grand Marshal
Gertrude Reddick was also there. The
Girl Scouts led the pledge of alle-


giance and had a contest before the
entertainment began.
The Cavaliers and LifeSong, two
local gospel music groups, performed
for the appreciative crowd.
The cake auction was cancelled
due to rain but five politicians gener-
ously donated $100 each.
Margaret Poppell was the chair-
person for this year's Greenville
Country Christmas. She deserves a
big hand of thanks for all of her hard
work as do all the others who helped
make the 24th Greenville Country
Christmas possible.
Next year, Greenville Country
Christmas will celebrate its silver an-
niversary.
