Missing


Man Found


A man missing from
Madison County has
been found in Wakulla
County
On Monday, Feb. 1,
after wonderful coverage
from local news media
personnel, Levi Booth,
who was reported miss-
ing on Jan. 28, was found
in Wakulla County
Booth reported to
deputies he was okay
and just wanted to leave
Madison and travel on
his horse.
The Madison Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office re-
ceived numerous reports
from citizens who saw
Levi and his horse trav-
eling west on Hwy 98
over the weekend and
were able to confirm his
welfare after receiving a
tip Levi might be staying
with a horse rancher


Levi Booth
near Wakulla.
Levi advised he
would contact his family
and let them know he
was safe.
The Madison Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office would
like to thank everyone
for their help in locating
this young man, and
wishes him the best in
his travels.


On Friday, January 29, Pinetta El-
ementary School students did their
part to help the earthquake-ravaged
Haiti. After watching many news-
casts of the struggles in Haiti faculty,
staff, students, and parents at PES de-
cided to try to help.
Students brought $1 to wear a hat
for the day. That afternoon, students
enjoyed a bake sale at the school.
All proceeds ($398.27) from the
bake sale and hat day will be going to
the people of Haiti.


"We spend so much time on read-
ing math, and writing preparing for
the FCAT, that sometimes we forget
that we need to teach our children
about the importance of taking care of
our fellow man. My dad taught me
that and he served on mission trips to
Haiti, as did one of our first grade
teachers, Ms. Gail Washington. I want
our children to see the need to help
others and then just help them with-
out being told. This is one way to
start," Principal Beth Moore stated.

VIEWPOINTS & OPINIONS


Letters to the Editor are typed word for word, comma for comma, as sent to this newspaper.


Watching President Barack
Obama's speech makes me won-
der if he really believes the fibs
he tells us. Either that, or he's a
better actor than he is a
teleprompter reader.
Obama wasn't contrite about
his broken promises and disas-
trous record, but was also on the
attack, daring anyone to oppose
his agenda.
On healthcare, he told the
Congressmen, "let me know" if
any of you have "a better idea that
will bring down premiums, the
deficit, cover the uninsured,
Medicare for seniors and stop in-
surance company abuses," as
though his plan would do those
things.
The Congressional Budget Of-
fice "CBO" has said the Democra-
tic plans would increase the
budget. Besides, you can't reduce
costs when the government forces
an increase in demand, even if it
caps insurance premiums and
shifts costs elsewhere or perhaps
impose rationing.
The CBO also has reported
that, with ObamaScare, millions
would remain uninsured. So un-
der his plan, costs would rise,
quality and choice would de-
crease, care would be rationed,
millions would remain uninsured
and, worst of all, the government
would control all aspects of our
lives.
Do conservatives have better
ideas? I think so. Restore market
forces through tort reform, health
savings accounts, abolishing gov-
ernment coverage mandates, al-


lowing consumers to purchase
policies across state lines, for a
few.
Make no mistake," neither
Obama nor the Democrat bunch
will support healthcare reform,
because to reduce costs, we must
reduce government control, and
they would never allow that.
Spending, Obama never apol-
ogized for his spending. Instead,
he blamed his deficits on Bush,
completely misrepresenting the
projected deficits under Bush and
ignoring his own doubling of the
national debt over the next 10
years. That's the issue we Ameri-
cans are losing sleep over, and he
offers only smoke and mirrors.
He says he will freeze a por-
tion of the budget, but Cato Insti-
tute reports, 83 percent of the
budget will be off-limits to any
cuts. Other than his "stimulus"
the real explosion in spending is
in the entitlements that may nev-
er be touched.
Even this mini-freeze he men-
tioned, wouldn't begin until 2011
(why wait?), and it would be
dwarfed by his planned spending
increases for other socialistic pro-
jects, including another "stimulus
plan." And how about that assault
on personal and fiscal responsi-
bility with his promise to forgive
student loans after 20 years?
How Obama can stand before
the people of this country and in-
sist on spending more borrowed
money to accomplish something
his first "stimulus plan" didn't
achieve, (Jobs), is beyond me.
He blames President Bush for


By Paul Niemann
Clarence Nash was born in 1896 in Brooklyn,
New York. He was a stage and vaudeville actor, and
when he took a stage name, he became known as Ted
Healy
Moses Horwitz was born in Brooklyn in 1897, the
fourth of five brothers to Sol and Jenny Horwitz.
Moses worked with his older brother Sam and his
younger brother Jerome. Moses would later marry
Harry Houdini's cousin, Helen Schonberger.
Over in Philadelphia, Louis Feinberg was one of
three boys born to Joseph and Fanny Lieberman. As
a boy, Louis burned his left arm in an accident with
the acid that was used in his father's jewelry busi-
ness. After his doctors recommended that he take vi-
olin lessons to strengthen his arm muscles, he
became so proficient at playing it that he began to
play professionally
Ted Healy hired the Horwitz brothers one at a
time, with Moses being the first one being when he
answered Healy's ad for an acrobat for his showbusi-
ness act. Healy later added Louis Feinberg to the
group, but they never performed as acrobats. Louis
had created an act in which he did a Russian dance
while playing the violin that got him noticed by
Healy
The trio went from stage to film, and their film
careers began in 1930 with their first film titled Soup
to Nuts. It was written by Rube Goldberg. Rube was
the popular cartoonist whose claim to fame came
from drawing cartoons that showed ten to fifteen
elaborate steps to achieve a simple task.
One of the actors originally went by the name of
Harry Howard, as Harry was his middle name. Like
many performers, each of the group's members took
stage names, so you'll never see the names of Moses,
Sam, Louis or Jerome in any of their reruns.
That 1930 film was a success, and it began a
string of 190 films that the trio created for 20th Cen-
tury Fox and Columbia Pictures. Many of the shows
that aired on television were what they called
"shorts," since they were only 10 or 12 minutes long.


his own broken promise that un-
employment wouldn't go over 8
percent if his "stimulus" bill were
not implemented. He even said he
saved 2 million jobs. The man is
scary delusional!
Obama actually dared to men-
tion the words "transparent" and
"accountable" Huh? How about
those make believe legislative dis-
tricts that received stimulus mon-
ey? How about that promise to
televise the healthcare debates on
C-SPAN?
He also said he hadn't raised
income taxes "a single dime" on 95
percent of the people. Yet in the
same breath, he promised to re-
double his efforts on Cap and
Trade (Tax), which would in-
crease the family's energy costs
by almost $3,000 a year.
How about his ranting on ear-
mark reform? Then signing bills
with hundreds of earmarks writ-
ten on them. Then, there was his
remarks on lobbyists, come to
find out, Obama has hired 13 or
more, and some hired as Czars.
Obama spoke of "partisan-
ship, shouting and pettiness" then
filled most of his speech with just
those things, even jumping on the
Supreme Court, falsely, for open-
ing the door to foreign corpora-
tions' campaign contributions.
How about his statement that
"America must always stand on
the side of freedom and human
dignity"? Hmm. Tell that to the
Iranian and Honduran people. He
must have meant only when he's
out of office.
George Pouliotte


Today, 90 years after making their first film, they re-
main as popular as ever in reruns, and the group's
likeness has appeared in TV commercials for compa-
nies such as MasterCard, Verizon and Sony They
have also enjoyed merchandising success, with their
image plastered on lunchboxes, T-shirts and hats.
Their image has even appeared on NASCAR cars.
The trio left Ted Healy when he tried to reduce
their salaries in 1934. Three years later, Ted was cele-
brating the birth of his son at a Los Angeles night-
club one night. He had too much to drink that night,
and he started a fight with three men at the nightclub.
When he asked them to step outside, they ganged up
on him, kicking him in the stomach, ribs and head.
He died the next day as a result of his head injuries.
His main legacy, however, is the comedy team
which he created. Moses Horwitz, Louis Feinberg
and Jerome Horwitz. Say it real fast three times and
what do you get?
Moe, Larry and Curly, a.k.a. The Three Stooges!
As for the three men who killed Ted Healy, their
names were Pat DiCicco, Albert Broccoli and Wallace
Beery Who were they?
Pat DiCicco was a mobster who married Gloria
Vanderbilt. She divorced him because he was violent
to her. Albert Broccoli, who was Pat DiCicco's cousin,
was a young assistant producer at the time. Wallace
Beery was a film actor for MGM.
While the names of Pat DiCicco and Wallace
Beery probably don't sound familiar to you, Albert
Broccoli's name might ring a bell.
He went on to become a well-known Hollywood
producer. In fact, like The Three Stooges shows, some
of his films are as popular today as they were when
he first began producing them. His first big hit was
the Ian Fleming film, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
It was his other work in which he made his mark,
though, and that was as the producer of the James
Bond series. You can see Broccoli's name listed in the
opening credits of the Bond films.
Really?
"Soitenly!"

Tim Tebow's

Commercial Is

Family Friendly

Leave It Alone

Tim Tebow's Super Bowl commercial, which
will air Sunday during the game, has seemed to
spark many a controversy. The commercial, fund-
ed by Focus On The Family, will feature Tebow and
his mother, Pam, delivering an anti-abortion mes-
sage. And so the fight began -- to run it or not to
run it.
CBS says they will run it. Kudos to CBS for not
giving in, and backing down, to activist groups.
This commercial/controversy, to me, is not
about pro-life or pro-choice. To me, it is all about a
man, and group, who are actually trying to run a
commercial that is family-friendly/family-orient-
ed and the organizations that are trying to stop it.
The funniest quote I've read yet is from Jehmu
Greene, president of the Women's Media Center,
"An ad that uses sports to divide rather than to
unite has no place in the biggest national sports
event of the year an event designed to bring
Americans together."
Too Funny. Let's visit past commercials/shows
from previous Super Bowl Sunday's. There was the
ever-famous Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunc-
tion," male erectile dysfunction commercials, Go-
Daddy.com commercials, Victoria's Secret
commercials, and many more non-family oriented
sexy/swanky commercials. So my question would
be, "How do those commercials bring Americans
together?"
Imagine.... A family is sitting together watch-
ing the Super Bowl, a Viagra commercial comes
on, and then your 10-year-old daughter begins to
ask you what male erectile dysfunction is. And,
yet, there are organizations that are trying to get
an anti-abortion commercial banned? Again, I say,
this has nothing to do with pro-life or pro-choice.
The fact of the matter is, in today's society, it is
scary to allow children to turn on the television at
all and see and hear what filth is on there. And for
once, they are finally airing something that your
10-year-old daughter CAN watch and still we have
groups who are going to complain.
The world, today, is already going to hell, with
the senseless murders, rapes, robberies, home in-
vasions, and child abuse. We have enough to worry
about just in thinking of our safety, and our fami-
ly's safety. The most important thing we should be
concentrating on is our souls, and our after-lives.
Why, oh why, are so many people worried about
a "good" commercial? Why are there so many
groups, and forces, trying to destroy the little
"good" that we have left in this world?
If you don't like what you see on the televi-
sion.... Turn the channel or cut it off. That's what I
do doing during all the sexy commercials and tele-
vision shows that I don't care to see, nor do I want
my teenage daughters to see.
If you don't want to watch Tim Tebow, then
don't watch him, but don't think you can mandate
to the rest of the world what we will watch and/or
not watch. I respect Tebow as an athlete, but most
of all as a man who has a good moral background,
good moral ethics, and is NOT afraid to stand up
for them.
Until then..... I'll see you around the town

Budget


As I write this col-
umn, President Oba-
ma is set to release his
budget proposal to
Congress for the next
fiscal year (FY 2011):
the federal govern-
ment will spend a lit-
tle more than $3.8
trillion and record a
deficit of nearly $1.3
trillion. It seems like
only a few years ago
we were trying to
grasp what a billion
dollars meant; the fig-
ures now are so large,
they defy description.
In one respect, gov-
ernment spending is
like genocide -- Joseph
Stalin said that if you
kill one person, it is
murder, but if you kill
a million, it's a statis-
tic.
Unless you are a
policy wonk like me,
you might not under-
stand the difference
between a deficit and
public debt. The
deficit is the amount
that an individual an-
nual budget is in ar-
rears, that is, where
spending exceeds in-
come. This year the
red ink represents
one-third of the presi-
dent's budget. Public
debt on the other hand
is the accumulation of
deficits over many
years. Currently, the
debt is above $12 tril-
lion and Congress last
week raised the debt
ceiling (the ability to
keep borrowing) to
well above $14 trillion.
The Federal gov-
ernment can continue
to run a negative cash
flow because they
print money through
the Treasury. State
and local governments
don't have that luxury;
they must either bal-
ance their budget or
sell bonds to finance a
deficit budget.
The danger in
deficit spending is
well known to house-
holds who have to bal-
ance their budget -
eventually the bill
needs to be paid. For a
state government,
their bonds which fi-
nance deficit spending
might be downgraded
to the point of "junk"
status not good. The
dilemma for the feds
and every American is
that inflation may be-
gin to creep up making
our currency and sav-
ings less valuable the
price of a loaf of
bread or gallon of
milk might slide up-
ward toward $5.00.
Everyday, rational
Americans know in-
stinctively the solu-


tion to this dilemma -
live within your
means -- don't spend
more than you make.
Most of us understand
the source of the cur-
rent recession people
began to buy houses
they couldn't afford;
took out home equity
loans that made their
mortgage worth more
than the property; and
charged too much to
high interest credit
cards. Collectively, we
went on a spending
spree that was unsus-
tainable, especially
when the air began to
leak from the real es-
tate balloon which
propped up all that
spending. Ordinary
Americans get it, but
politicians who are ex-
pert at spending other
people's money are
clueless.
Another budgetary
distinction that is im-
portant to understand
is discretionary ver-
sus non-discretionary
spending. Discre-
tionary spending is
that amount of the
budget that the cur-
rent Congress can ac-
tually tinker with if
they're serious about
reducing the deficit.
Amazingly, discre-
tionary spending rep-
resents only 37 percent
of the president's bud-
get. Nearly two-thirds
of the budget is non-
discretionary or enti-
tlement spending
where previous Con-
gresses have commit-
ted future taxpayers to
fund programs like So-
cial Security, Medicare
and Medicaid.
The current Con-
gress could conceiv-
ably balance this
year's budget ... if
they zeroed-out all dis-
cretionary spending -
no defense, no home-
land security, no edu-
cation, no national
parks, no agriculture,
etc. Obviously that is
impractical. We have
to have a military and
there are huge bureau-
cracies that demand
their share of the fed-
eral pie. Other than
that, the only way to
reduce spending is to
reform those massive
entitlement programs
to make them fiscally
sound. When George


Bush attempted to do
that with Social Secu-
rity in 2005, Democrats
rebelled and reform
went nowhere. In 2009,
the Democrats idea of
health care reform was
to go beyond the cur-
rent Medicare and in-
sure more people.
Common sense says
that it doesn't make
sense to expand an en-
titlement program
when you can't pay for
the existing one!
There is another
way to balance the bud-
get by increasing rev-
enues. The Democrats
(who control both the
Congress and White
House) answer to that
solution is to raise tax-
es. By contrast, Repub-
licans want to expand
the economy. It boils
down to this one par-
ty wants to take the
money out of the pri-
vate sector and spend
it on government pro-
grams while the other
party wants to leave it
in the hands of the peo-
ple who earned it so
that it can be invested
in private enterprise.
This is a funda-
mental philosophical
difference between De-
mocrats and Republi-
cans.
A huge problem for
politicians when they
raise taxes is that they
now have an excuse for
new or expanded pro-
grams; in other words,
the deficit doesn't real-
ly get reduced. There
was a brief period in
the late 1990s when the
Clinton Administra-
tion not only balanced
the budget, but pro-
duced a slight surplus,
but fiscally conserva-
tive Republicans were
in charge of both hous-
es of Congress and
kept the lid on spend-
ing. Don't expect this
from the current Con-
gressional leadership -
the same one trying to
expend health care and
energy spending.
The more informed
you are about this
process, the better for
our nation's future.
Never forget that
these politicians we
send to Washington
are spending your
money ... and that of
your children and
grandchildren.

Thoughts To Live By


a


We are still buying pecans and
we are still cracking and shelling
for the public !!!


No matter how good a friend is, they're going to
hurt you every once in a while and you must
forgive them for that. Even if you think you
can't.
You can do something in an instant that will
give you heartache for life.
You should always leave loved ones with loving
words. It may be the last time you see them.
We are responsible for what we do, no matter
how we feel.
You control your attitude or it controls you.
Money is a lousy way of keeping score.
Sometimes the people you expect to kick you
when you're down, will be the ones to help you
get back up.


Sometimes when you are angry, you have the
right to be angry, but that doesn't give you the
right to be cruel.
Maturity has more to do with what types of
experiences you've had and what you've learned
from them and less to do with how many
birthdays you've celebrated.

Greetings were given

Question:
What should I get my wife for Valentines Day?
Answer:
You are asking ME? I feel like I need to ad a
disclaimer to this answer because I know I am on
thin ice. Having that said I can tell you that in
our office we hear about all the valentines
presents, the mothers day gifts, the anniversaries,
Christmas.. .you get the idea. We hear about the
ones that were wonderful and those that were not.
I struggle myself, so it is with a bit of trepidation
that I share some rules of thumb I have learned
from the ladies.
The most important rule I have heard is, do NOT
give anything that "plugs in." I don't understand
this rule, but I guess I am not supposed to
understand. I thought that an appliance that
would make daily work easier would be nice. I
learned not to give any work related appliances
for Valentines. That means no fancy vacuum
cleaners, no floor waxers, no dishwashers, or
clothes washers. No electric food choppers or
Ronco "Set it and Forget it" rotisserie ovens. If
you get it, you can forget it!
I can tell you that a number of wives ask how
much dental bleaching costs. They are hoping
their husband will spring for the cost of their
getting a dazzling smile. They may have been
trying the store bought systems which have not
worked and now they want the real deal.
Just be sure to give them a gift which will
bring them joy. Smile whitening, it is the gift
which keeps giving.

Chili Challenge Big Hit At



Fifth Saturday Festival


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Rains tried to wash out the first
Fifth Saturday Farmers and Friends
Festival of 2010, which was held on
Jan. 30 at Four Freedoms Park in
Madison. The sun did finally break
through though, as several hundred
visitors enjoyed great food and live
entertainment until mid-afternoon.
The showcase of this edition of
the festival launched last year by the
Madison Rotary Club was the inau-
gural Madison County Chili Chal-
lenge. Co-sponsored by Tobacco Free
Madison and Quit Smoking Now, the
event was hosted by the Greater
Madison County Chamber of Com-
merce. Featuring great prizes and
souvenirs, the event was a huge suc-


cess, in spite of the heavy, early
rains.
"We had a total of 5 judges, one
from Madison County, three from
Taylor County and one from Jeffer-
son County. This event was an official
qualifier for the Tri-County Chili
Challenge Championship scheduled
to take place at the Pickin' in the
Pines Festival in September in Tay-
lor County," explained Ted Ens-
minger, executive director of the
chamber.
Other qualifying events will take
place in Jefferson County in March
and in Taylor County in April. The top
ten teams from each county qualify for
the championship. Almost 200 event at-
tendees enjoyed the "all-you-can-eat"
sampling of the different chilies.


Winners were as follows:
Best Booth Design: Pam O'Toole
People's Choice Awards:
1st Place $100 Roxanne

3rd Place Jessica Webb "Steel

AROUND MADISON COUNTY


Attenbing The get-AMotivateb Seminar


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The pretty blonde woman
looks familiar to this writer.
When he hears her introduce
herself, he is almost floored.
"Hello," she says in her chip-
per voice, "I'm Kari Michaelsen
and I'm your emcee for today's
Get Motivated seminar."
This writer remembers as a
teenager watching Michaelsen
on a television show called
"Gimme a Break." She has amaz-
ing held her youthful looks, al-
though she is three years older
than the writer of this article.
Now, as she stood in the are-
na, the writer sat in a room on
the lower floor of the Tallahas-
see Leon County Civic Center on
Monday, Jan. 25, and watched
her on a giant screen television.
Michaelsen introduces the
first speaker of the morning,
Rick Belluzzo, the former presi-
dent of Microsoft, who spoke on
leadership and explained why
failure is never final.
Some of the key points of
Belluzzo's message were:
*Embrace change because it
creates opportunity.
*Be willing to try something
*Don't be a victim: Maintain
a positive outlook
*Enjoy the opportunity to
reinvent yourself


Belluzzo drove home the
point that "adversity creates op-
portunity."
Former Florida State football
Coach Bobby Bowden was the
next speaker. He went on the
stage to pyrotechnics and an au-
dio recording of Gary Glitter
singing "Rock and Roll." Bowden
spoke about teamwork and devel-
oping a winning team.
The writer hated not being in
the arena while Bowden spoke
but listened to the legendary
coach offer his wisdom on not
only football, but good sound
business sense.
The next speaker was Krish
Dhanam. Dhanam, who hails
from India spoke about commu-
nication. He told everyone that
the United States of America is
the best country on the face of
the planet.
"People always want to see
how green the grass is on the
other side of the fence," he said.
"I've been on the other side of
the fence; there is no grass
there."
One of the key points of
Dhanam's speech was on
F.E.A.R., which Dhanam said is
an acronym for "False Evidence
Appearing Real."
Alan Andrus was the next
speaker as he introduced a pro-
gram called Investools to the


crowd in Tallahassee. He ap-
peared live in the room with the
closed circuit television.
Following Andrus' presenta-
tion, Tamara Lowe spoke to the
crowd in the arena and via the
television. She explained how
everyone has a different motiva-
tional DNA and how everyone
has a different way that he or
she can be motivated.
After filling out a question-
naire online after the seminar,
this writer discovered that his
motivational DNA is Connec-
tion-Variety-Internal or The Re-
later.
According to a print-out from
Lowe, "Relaters are caring and
creative. They relish life and
cherish relationships. Relaters
are outgoing, friendly and well-
liked. They are resourceful and
inventive, with an ability to com-
promise to get the job done. They
are team players who bring out
the best in others. Warm and en-
thusiastic, they balance concern
for others with a zeal for person-
al growth.
"Relaters are personal and
practical in their approach to
problem-solving. They have an
innate ability to creating win-
win solutions. Relaters value
what is really important and de-
sire to make a positive contribu-
tion to society. Blending loyalty


with adventure, Relaters are fun
friends and devoted partners.
"CVI Motivators: Genuine ap-
preciation for a job done well,
opportunities for personal
growth, fun co-workers, team-
work, new experiences and an
inspiring work environment.
"CVI De-Motivators: Isola-
tion, rigid routine, pressure-
cooker deadlines, quenching
creativity, disapproval "
Following Lowe's speech, the
group in the room with the
closed circuit television discov-
ered that they would be given
free lunches and finish enjoying
the program in the arena.
Afternoon speakers included
the legendary Zig Ziglar and
Rudolph Giuliani.
Ziglar, who fell down steps a
few years ago, has short-term
memory loss and, at age 83, he
was not as sharp as he once was.
His daughter was onstage lead-
ing him around and they eventu-
ally showed a video of Ziglar's
speeches from years past. The
audience gave him a thunderous
round of applause.
Rudolph Giuliani, former
Mayor of New York City and
presidential candidate, spoke on
perseverance.
Like Ziglar, he received a
standing ovation and a thunder-
ous round of applause.

Sandwich Generation Needs to
Avoid Financial Squeeze
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Are you a member of the "Sandwich Generation"? This des-
ignation which applies to people caring for their aging par-
ents while supporting their own children may be applicable
to you if you're either a younger Baby Boomer, born in the late
1950s or early 1960s, or an older member of "Generation X,"
born in the mid-1960s. But any way you slice it, being in the
"Sandwich" group is probably going to present you with some
challenges, particularly of the financial kind so you'll need
to make the right moves.
Basically, you should consider two areas of decision-making
those affecting the future of you and your children and
those affecting your elderly parents' lifestyle and legacy.
Regarding your future, and that of your children, you'll need
to prioritize your goals. Some people, when weighing the
merits of investing for retirement versus saving for their chil-
dren's college educations, conclude that while loans are
available for college, none are offered to retirees.
Consequently, they focus more heavily on retirement. If you're
in this camp, you'll probably want to contribute as much as
you can possibly afford to your IRA and 401(k) or other
employer-sponsored retirement plan.
However, if you feel strongly about helping your kids go
through college relatively debt-free, you may want to explore
some college-savings options, such as Section 529 plans
and Coverdell Education Savings Accounts, both of which
offer significant tax advantages.
In any case, these goals don't have to be mutually exclusive
but if you're going to address them both, you will have to
make some key decisions regarding allocation of resources.
And while you're handling these issues for yourself and your
children, you'll need to juggle the needs of your elderly par-
ents. With luck, you won't have to contribute financially, but
you may be required to put in some time and energy to help
make sure your parents' situation remains positive.
This means you'll need to ask some questions. Where do
your parents bank? Do they have a brokerage account? If so,
do you know the name of their financial advisor? Have they
taken steps to remain financially independent if they ever
need to go to a nursing home or employ home health care
assistants? Have they drawn up a will, a living trust or other
estate plan documents? Would they be willing to have you or
another family member assume power of attorney should
they become incapacitated?
In raising these questions, you will have to approach your
parents with tact and sensitivity. However, you may be pleas-
antly surprised at your parents' willingness to talk about these
issues; after all, they almost surely want to avoid burdening
you with extra financial responsibilities.
The best time to approach your parents is when they are
healthy, both mentally and physically. It's especially important
to be aware of even minor-seeming cognitive impairments,
such as memory lapses, which can result in paying the same
bills two or three times, forgetting to record checks or even
falling prey to fraudulent investment schemes. If you suspect
your parents may be having these troubles, you'll need to
step in immediately.
It's not easy being a Sandwich Generation member, but
through diligence and proper planning, you should be able to
help avoid getting "squished" while improving the out-
comes for all your beloved family members.

local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.

Fidelity Is The Winning Word I


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The suspense was so
thick; it could have been
cut with a knife. Everyone
in the room breathed
sighs of relief with one
another. It happened
again and again. Often, a
bell would ring, marking
the fall of contestant after
contestant. Round after
round, the competition
continued, until only one
was left standing. Yep, the
spelling bee was back for
another year.
The district competi-
tion of the 2010 Scripps
Spelling Bee took place on
Jan. 29 in the Madison
County School Board
meeting room. Spellers
from fifth through eighth
grade competed, with the
winner advancing to the
regional bee in Jack-
sonville on Feb. 21. The ul-
timate prize, of course, is
then to make it to the
main stage in Washing-
ton, D.C. for the national
tournament at the end of
the school year. The dis-


trict also held a "warm-
up" bee for the fourth
graders.
Grade winners from
public and private schools
gathered approximately
20 in all took turns, as
Diane Phillips carefully
pronounced official words
provided for the competi-
tion. She also provided
sentences and definitions
as needed. Three local ed-
ucation matriarchs;
Frances Mercer, Lucile
Day and Stuart Fenne-
man, served as judges,
where Lucile Day had the
heavy task of ringing the
bell to confirm a mis-
spelled word.
The group was
shaved down slowly, with
the audience painfully de-
flating almost as much as
the contestants with each
and every miss. Down to
two spellers Tyler Bur-
nett, a fifth grader at
Pinetta Elementary, and
Tonizea Wooten, a sev-
enth grader at the Central
School the last rounds
were riveting.


The rules state if
both finalists miss their
respective word in a
round, that the competi-
tion continues. This hap-
pened twice, putting the
audience on the edge of
their seats. Both students
then spelled their respec-
tive words correctly a
minute later, keeping
them neck-to-neck. It was
like watching academic
gladiators rising and
falling, until finally Bur-
nett stood alone to spell,
"fidelity"
"Fidelity, F-I-D-E-L-I-
T-Y, Fidelity," she said
with a smile. Applause
erupted, as Tyler Burnett
was introduced as the
Madison County Spelling
Bee Champion.
Organizer Jan
McHargue and Superin-
tendent of Schools Lou
Miller joined parents and
visitors in congratulating
all competitors, awarding
trophies to the champion
and runner-up, in addi-
tion to handsome certifi-
cates to each participant.
In the fourth grade
Bee, Mishaila Berman of
Lee Elementary School
took first place, while all
spellers were urged to
keep up the good work un-
til next year.
