After 43 Years,

Ulysses Robinson, left, and Chuck Harding, right, have been reunited after al-
most 43 years. Harding was Robinson's platoon sergeant in the 25th Infantry Di-
vision in Plaku, Vietnam.

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Chuck Harding said that some-
thing kept drawing him back to the
Harding had seen the sticker on
the back of the truck in the Wal-Mart
parking lot in Perry and it kept draw-
ing him back. The chances of him see-
ing anyone he had known while he
was in the 25th Infantry Division in
Plaku, Vietnam were very small.
Many of them had been killed and he
had, in fact, been carried off the bat-
tlefield on a helicopter, after receiving
four gunshot and 13 shrapnel wounds.
Everyone thought he would die and
the other men who were airlifted out
with him that day did die before reach-
ing Japan.
Harding kept standing around the
truck and couldn't leave. His wife told
him that someone would call the law
to him if he didn't leave. Harding said
that a woman came out and asked him
if she could help.
He looked at her and told her,
"You're too young to have been in Viet-
She laughed and told him that her
husband was. When Ulysses Roberson

came out to the truck, the two men im-
mediately recognized each other.
Harding had been Robinson's pla-
toon sergeant and Robinson had been
one of the men who had put him on
the helicopter.
"We thought he was going to die,"
Robinson said of Harding
Robinson served in the U.S. Army
in Vietnam in 1967-68. Harding was
there in 1966-67.
Now, almost 43 years later, the two
men have been bonding closely, talk-
ing about their past experiences in

John Crosby, owner of Madison Metals, is offer-
ing a $1,000 reward for information leading to the ar-
rest and conviction of whoever is responsible for the
burglary of his business sometime between Tuesday
evening, Jan. 12, and Wednesday morning, Jan. 13.
Crosby estimated the total loss of between
$7,000 to $8,000. Items stolen included 700 to 800
pounds of copper, from 60 to 70 catalytic converters
and an unknown amount of radiators.
Crosby said that he believed that up to three
people had entered the business and taken the

closed the shop, they did not turn on the alarm.

Reader Upset At

Votes On Health Care

And Cap And Trade

People of North Florida,can you
believe the past votes by our represen-
tatives on health care and cap and
trade. Global warming is becoming
unmasked as a complete farce. It has
decimated this country economical-
ly,yet Allan Boyd voted for it. He has
the time and money to research this
with credible scientists yet still listens
to Al Goreites who are making tens of
millions on lies.He needs to be voted
Senator Bill Nelson voted for the
Health Care bill after being bribed to
give three counties in our state a
medicare supplement exemp-

tion,Miami-Dade,Broward,and Palm
Beach counties. These are probably
the most populous and wealthy re-
tirees.What about the other 64 coun-
ties? He surely does not represent us.
I'm proud to live in North Florida
but this unethical politics makes the
state look cheesy,i.e,Nebraska,
Louisiana. Nelson needs to be voted
out. I'm also concerned about Charlie
Crist's conservative views. Marco Ru-
bio seems to be the better fiscal con-
servative of the two..

Funeral Customs

By Karlen Evins
In addition to re-
searching the origins
behind words and

likewise curious to

candles are customary

With the recent
passing of my father,
my curiosity took on
new depths as I lived

wanted to know just
who to thank for com-

is your explanation as to why there

city manager's articulated and
demonstrated priority of the reha-
bilitation of sidewalks within the

this favoritism and prefer-

disparate treatment so

This column ap-
peared in the Carrier
nearly five years ago.
I'm rerunning it as a
tribute to Lee Cason
who passed away last
week and others of
World War II's great-
est generation.
In the summer of
1942, Lee Cason took
time off from his job
with the Alabama
highway department
to register for induc-
tion into the Army
Air Force. In Febru-
ary 1943, he was
called up for initial
training to Nashville,
TN and classified as a
bombardier. Subse-
quent training took
him to Ellington and
Big Spring air bases
in Texas. Upon grad-
uation with Class 43-
12, he pinned on his
wings and 2nd Lieu-
tenant bars.
Next stop for Lee
was Clovis AB, New
Mexico where he was
introduced to the B-24
Liberator and the
crew that would join
him in combat. Con-
solidated Aircraft of
Fort Worth had de-
signed the "Lib." Be-
tween 1941 and 1945,
more than 24,000 of
these 4-engine mon-
sters would be built,
many of them by Hen-
ry Ford at Willo\\
Run, Michigan
Lee's job \\as

the target after the
crew navigated
and fought their
way to the in l
tial point. It
was at Clovis
that he was
introduced to
the super se-
cret Norden
Before each
mission, Lee
would pick
up his bomb-
sight from
t h e
safe and carry
it to his air-
craft. After he
installed and cali-
brated the sight,
he was ready to fly
and drop bombs. At
mission's end, he re-
versed the process.
Carl Norden's re-
markable apparatus
would remain under
lock and key for the
duration of the war.
Lee was experi-
encing things that a
poor kid from South
Alabama could hard-
ly have imagined.
Next stop was Blythe,
California where he
managed to grab a
pass for Los Angeles
and Hollywood.
Christmas 1943 found
him in Herrington,
Kansas where his
crew was assigned a
brand spanking new
B-24J they nicknamed
"Swamp Angel."
Then, it was on to
Tucson for some mod-
ifications to the plane
before flying to Fair-
field, CA.
At Fairfield, three
members of his crew
jumped the fence and
headed to San Fran-
cisco for a little unau-
thorized liberty. On
the way back, who
should they hitchhike
with but the base's
Provost Martial! The
anticipated Courts
Martial was down-
graded to an old fash-

ion 'butt chewing'
and before long,

Swamp Angel and
crew were winging
their way west to
In early February
1944, Lee was swim-
ming in an ocean for
the first time in his
life at Waikiki. No
wonder he penned in
his diary: "Getting
into the Air Corps
was the best thing
I've ever done in my
In Brisbane, Aus-
tralia, the crew gave
up Swamp Angel and
hooked a ride on a
freighter to Milne
Bay, New Guinea. By
March 15, he had ar-
rived at Nadzab and
joined the 64th Bomb
Squadron, 43rd Bomb
Group of General
George Kenney's fa-
bled 5th Air Force.
Over the next 10
months, Lee would fly
46 combat missions
from various bases in
New Guinea bombing
Japanese targets

ber 1944. This mis-
sion was everything
the air power pio-
neers of the 1930s Air
Corps Tactical School
had dreamed of. Most
of Japan's aviation
fuel came from this
refinery. Launching
from Orvi Airfield
near Biak, the mis-
sion tested the range
of the B-24. They
took off at 2:20 in the
morning single ship
and rendezvoused
north of the target
over the Celebes Sea.
When the bomber for-
mation approached
the target, they were
engaged by nearly 40
Japanese fighters and
heavy flak. Lee's air-
craft was hit three
times, but he put the
bombs on the target
and huge fires erupt-
ed. On the return
trip, their aircraft
lost an engine and
they began to run low
on fuel. Preparing to
run out of gas and
ditching in the ocean,
they began to throw

They lived in tents to have claimed more

soon rains and enemy theater. And the con-
air raids. In between editions for survival -
missions, Lee read enemy territory, vast
and answered letters stretches of ocean,
from home; played and uncharted jun-
softball, football and gles and mountain

badminton; watched a
lot of feature movies,
and even shot skeet a
few times. As a ju-
nior officer, he fre-
quently pulled the
unenviable task of
censoring mail.
Initially, Lee and
his crew were as-
signed some question-
able targets for a
bomber; this and poor
leadership resulted in
questionable results.
But, as the squadron
gained experience,
their efficiency im-
proved. Once they
were assigned true
strategic targets such
as troop assembly
points and oilfields,
the 43rd began achiev-
ing excellent results.
the most significant
mission Lee flew was
to strike the refinery
plants at Balikpap-
pan, Borneo in Octo-

ranges made sur-
vival difficult and

Rest and recuper-
ation (R&R) was a big
thing for troops en-
gaged in combat. Lee
enjoyed two R&R
trips to Sydney where
cold drinks, ice
cream, horse races,
and dances with
Aussie girls filled his
time. Who said war

By January 11,
1945, Lee had flown 46
combat missions and
attained enough
points to earn a trip
back home. On Febru-
ary 21st, now at Leyte
in The Philippines,
Lee bid farewell: "Say-
ing goodbye to all the
fellows in the
squadron this morn-
ing was the hardest
thing I've ever done."
From Biak on March

11, he climbed
aboard a troop ship
and headed east for
a non-stop 23 day
journey that fin-
ished by passing un-
der the Golden Gate
Bridge. Lee Cason
had come home
from World War II,
in one piece, ready to
get on with the rest of
his life.
Lee's diary is a re-
markable journal of a
combat aviator in the
Southwest Pacific.
I'm grateful to Char-
lotte for letting me
read it, and I'm
thrilled to have had
the chance to know
Lee Cason. He was a
hero, a great Ameri-
can and a credit to our

an extreme interest in working to
help improve the lives of those
around him. Beginning at the age
of five, Chad assisted his father, a
volunteer firefighter, in respond-

Woman' s Club Kicks Off Great New Year

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison Woman's Club kicked off a new
year on Jan. 14. President Jackie Johnson opened
the meeting by warmly greeting membership and
guests who gathered for the monthly luncheon
catered by Maid to Order, which all enjoyed follow-
ing a moving devotional by Florida Davis.
Combining a spiritual story with her patented
clever comedy, Davis shared a playful look into the
media obsession with "staying young." This advice
wasn't centered on potions and creams, however, in-
stead extolling ideas, such as "Keep cheerful
friends," "Keep learning," and "Tell the people you
love that you love them," as the key to remaining
The program presentation for the meeting was a
report from Helen McCain and Joyce Primm re-
garding their recent visit to the Heifer Internation-
al farm near Little Rock, Arkansas. The Florida
Federation of Women's Clubs previously selected
the organization as one of their primary charities.
Joining over 40 club members from throughout

the state, the ladies traveled to the 1800-acre farm
and headquarters for several days of education and
hands-on support. And although rain prevented
some activities intended to provide assistance to the
"all green" farm, the Madison still duo enjoyed the
trip, which included a Broadway show in Branson,
Mo., along the way. The Madison Woman's Club do-
nated over $2,000 to the cause both ladies found im-
pressive and worthwhile.
In other business, several members were recog-

nized for their winning entries that will be featured
in the FFWC Arts and Craft Contest held later this
year. Photographs, paintings, and a variety of crafts
were among the categories judged by Dorothy Pea-
cock, Hilda Dixon, William Winter and Shannon
Webb. Helen McCain was awarded Best in Show for
her crocheted baby blanket.
As the meeting closed, the group voted Jackie
Johnson, "Volunteer of the Year." And all agreed
2010 would be a great year for the club.

New Year Means New Opportunities
for Roth IRA Conversion
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones

If you already have a Roth IRA, you're aware of its biggest
benefit: Your earnings grow tax free, provided you meet cer-
tain conditions. If you don't have a Roth IRA, you may want to
consider one and it may be easier for you to do just that in
Before we get to the reasons why 2010 may be your year
to open or convert to a Roth IRA, let's look at some differ-
ences between Roth and traditional IRAs. If you own a tradi-
tional IRA, your contributions may be tax-deductible, depend-
ing on your income level. But whether you can make
deductible contributions or not, your earnings grow on a tax-
deferred basis, which means your money can grow faster
than it would if it were placed in an investment on which you
paid taxes every year. On the other hand, Roth IRA contribu-
tions are never tax-deductible, but your earnings grow tax
free, as long as you've held your account at least five years
and you don't start taking withdrawals until you're at least age
Furthermore, unlike a traditional IRA, a Roth IRA does not
require you to start taking distributions when you reach 7012.
Consequently, you'll have more flexibility and freedom when
it comes to making withdrawals.
If you have a traditional IRA, you might be thinking it's a
good idea to convert to a Roth IRA because tax free sounds
better than tax deferred and, all things being equal, tax
free would indeed be better. However, it's not quite that sim-
ple. If you convert your traditional IRA to a Roth IRA, you'll
have to pay taxes on those traditional IRA earnings and con-
tributions that had previously gone untaxed. If you do convert,
you'll be better off if you use money held outside your IRA to
pay the taxes. If you simply take money from your IRA, you'll
obviously lower the value of your IRA and, if you're under
591/2, you may have to pay an additional 10% penalty on the
amount you withdraw to pay the taxes.
In the past, many investors have been prohibited from con-
verting their IRAs due to either their tax filing status or their
income. Under previous rules, you could convert your tradi-
tional IRA to a Roth IRA only if you were married and filed a
joint return or were a single filer, and your modified adjusted
gross income (MAGI) was $100,000 or less. But starting in
2010, you can convert funds to a Roth IRA even if your MAGI
is over $100,000. You will also be able to convert to a Roth if
you are married and file separate tax returns.
And that's not the only piece of good news regarding your
conversion ability. As mentioned above, you will have to pay
taxes when you convert to a Roth IRA. A conversion is usu-
ally reported as income for the tax year the conversion takes
place. However, in 2010 only, your conversion amount will be
split and reported as income for tax years 2011 and 2012
unless you elect to report the entire conversion amount on
your 2010 taxes. You may find that spreading the taxes over
two years can make the conversion more affordable.
In any case, consult with your tax advisor before converting
from a traditional IRA to a Roth. If done correctly, such a con-
version can potentially make a big difference in your ultimate
retirement lifestyle.

Laughing Gas Comes In Candy Flavors

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
From the day modern dentistry served its first
child, the profession of pediatric dentistry has
been searching for new ways to make it less
painful and more efficient. After all, dentistry is a
business where time is the most expensive part of
the process the dentist's time. From the patient's
perspective, every parent who has ever stood
watch over a toddler receiving dental services
would say they only want a pain free experience.
So, what's the solution to satisfy both these
goals? The answer is candy-flavored laughing gas.
The following is the press release provided
from the University of Wisconsin Madison:
The pleasing aroma of bubble gum, orange or
vanilla is changing the way many young patients
are sedated for certain medical procedures.
And their doctors say using nitrous oxide, de-
livered through scented masks, has another big
plus: it reduces the stress and the time required
for difficult or painful treatments.
Since June, more than 100 patients undergo-
ing sedation at American Family Children's Hos-
pital have received "laughing gas" nitrous oxide
or NO- which they inhale through a scented
"Only about a dozen hospitals across the coun-
try use NO for pediatric sedation, but the trend is
growing. Physicians say the new approach is very

Can I feed my infant juice in a Sippy cup if I dilute it?

Boy that brings back memories of sleepless weeks,
which turned into sleepless months. Before you know
it a half a year has gone by and your biggest aspiration
is a full night of sleep. I have been there and done that
so I know all too well how you feel.
You can only get the child to sleep if you give them
a Sippy cup. You take away the cup you can forget
getting sleep. Even worse, try to put water in the cup
and you will hear that loud bang when they throw the
cup on the floor in disgust followed by the crying.
I know it seems like juice in the Sippy cup is the
only answer. I am sorry to recommend against juice in
Sippy cups. Now before you get mad at me there are
other solutions. There are sugar free drinks which
work great in a Sippy cup. For my children we used
Crystal Light. It is a drink mix powder you add to
I have been asked if it is OK to dilute sugary drinks
for Sippy cups. There is no way to dilute sugary drinks
enough...any amount of sugar in a Sippy cup at
bedtime will cause baby bottle tooth decay. I have
been asked if natural juices or unsweetened fruit juice
is OK. NO, it is not OK either. Sugar is sugar, all
sugars cause tooth decay whether it is natural or not.
Have fruit juices at mealtime but not bedtime.
Try Crystal Light, you will be glad you did. Just
think, now you can enjoy a good night's sleep that
does not come at the expense of your child's dental
health, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

effective in calming children for certain proce-
dures, such as accessing a port with a needle to
give chemotherapy or inserting urethral catheters
for children undergoing workup for urinary tract
infections. The patient is lightly sedated while
breathing the gas and is able to interact with hos-
pital staff.

Seniors Stand Up

To The Swine Flu

It's easily been the
hot-button medical story
of the past year, but the
H1N1 (also known as
Swine Flu) pandemic has
seen some interesting sta-
tistics when it comes to
who must be treated. Con-
sidered a high-risk group
with most large-scale
health-scares, seniors
somehow have bucked
the trend and shown im-
pressive resiliency
against the pandemic.
The Center for Dis-
ease Control and Preven-
tion even has listed them
near the bottom of the
H1N1 vaccine priority
Last spring, when
parents and children
alike expressed their
fears of the growing
Swine Flu scare and
pharmaceutical compa-
nies rushed to distribute
a vaccine, the CDC re-
leased its findings show-
ing that seniors over 60
years of age had a sur-
prising advantage in the
fight against the disease.
The CDC found that 64
percent of Swine Flu cas-
es occurred amongst five-
to 24-year-olds. But in a
surprising and unex-
plained twist, only one
percent of flu patients
were 65 years or older.
Original speculation
was that H1N1 simply
hadn't reached the senior
community yet, but the
reasoning behind these
numbers could be far
more scientific.

Medical experts now
believe that by being ex-
posed to countless season-
al flu vaccines over the
course of their lives, se-
niors may actually have
built up something of an
immunity to the virus.
That concept and the
numbers backing it up
have compelled the CDC
to put seniors at the bot-
tom of the priority list for
the H1N1 vaccine, which
primarily has been
topped by children and
pregnant women.
Of course, before opt-
ing not to get vaccinated
or to get the vaccine, be
sure to consult your doc-
tor, as everyone's medical
status and condition is
The CDC encourages
seniors to get their regu-
lar flu shots and has made
this vaccine available to
those of an advanced age,
but it looks as if the el-
derly may have accrued a
whole new kind of wis-
dom when it comes to bat-
tling Swine Flu.

common to wait 20 minutes for the sedative to
work," he says. "The patient typically would have
to stay additional time in the hospital to make
sure they were fully recovered from sedation.
"The advantage nitrous oxide has over oral
medications is that it starts working in a minute,
and after the procedure the mask is removed, the
effects are gone, and the child can go home." Holl-
man says this means less stress for families with
children who require frequent appointments for
chronic illnesses.
"It's not just a matter of how well they recov-
er, but how quickly, especially for cancer patients.
They spend enough time in the hospital," he says.
"That's really important to a family anything to
ease their situation."
NO is most useful for brief, minimally inva-
sive procedures, however, and not every child will
like it. But Hollman says the positives usually out-
weigh the negatives.
"It works really well for 90 to 95 percent of
children whom we identify as potentially benefit-
ing from nitrous," he says. "While nitrous oxide
isn't for everyone, we felt there were certain pa-
tient populations where we could administer it
safely and effectively, give them a drug that would-
n't require an IV or taking anything by mouth,
and allow them to go home as soon as the proce-
dure is completed. This is just another tool in our
toolbox to provide comfort to children."

The Lee Boys and Girls Club is extremely popular, offering students an after school program that in-
cludes a variety of fun and constructive activities.

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Area Director Talinda Dunbar
and Site Director John Doherty along
with Instructors Ferres Joshua and
Lashontae Lee, have brought the Boys
and Girls Club to Lee Elementary
School. The program has rolled out
around the county offering students
safe, constructive and fun after school
programs that have made the Boys
and Girls Club a revered and respect-
ed organization throughout America.
The Boys and Girls Club after
school program, which is currently
serving the Central School, Pinetta
and Greenville Elementary Schools,
in addition to LES, serves hundreds of

students with a variety of activities,
ranging from sports and play to crafts
and dance. Students, parents, and
school sponsors agree the program is
not only providing great services, but
is also a solution to the consistent
complaint, "There nothing for kids to
do in Madison County!"
Offered daily the program goes
until 5:30 daily in Lee, which gives par-
ents valuable after school care that
might otherwise not be affordable.
"In every community boys and
girls are left to find their own recre-
ation and companionship in the
streets. An increasing number of chil-
dren are at home with no adult care or
supervision. Young people need to

know that someone cares about
them," according to club literature.
"Boys & Girls Clubs offer that
and more. Club programs and ser-
vices promote and enhance the devel-
opment of boys and girls by instilling
a sense of competence, usefulness, be-
longing and influence.
'Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe
place to learn and grow all while
having fun. They are truly The Posi-
tive Place For Kids."
For more information on the club
or to provide support for the basket-
ball program, phone John Doherty at
(850) 973-5030.
