Driver's License

Renewal Is

Recently, I went to the drivers license of-
fice in Tallahassee to renew my drivers li-
cense. I was told I had to have a birth
certificate, and various forms of identifica-
tion. I gathered up the information, I got
in 1941 by the Hospital I was born in. To my
CATE is not acceptable if it was issued by
the Hospital, it must be "a birth certificate
issued by a government agency.
I am 68 years old, my ORIGINAL BIRTH
CERTIFICATE was good enough to get a Soc.
Security number 52 years ago. It was good
enough to get a driver's license for the past
52 years, It was good enough for me to serve
8 yrs. in the Air Force and get a Top Secret
clearance. It was good enough to serve 30
years in Law Enforcement. It was good
enough to draw Soc. Security, it was good
enough to get a concealed firearms permit,
but it is NOT GOOD ENOUGH to renew my
driver's license.
I was told by someone this is from
HOMELAND SECURITY. These brain dead
people in Washington couldn't stop the ter-
rorists from the twin towers murders,
they wouldn't have caught the Christmas
day bomber if his bomb had worked, but
they can stop a proven AMERICAN CITI-
ZEN from renewing a drivers license.
So, now, I will send off and try and get a
Government piece of paper to say I am who
I have been for 68 yrs. and perhaps break the
law by driving with an expired DL.
This is the type of thing that makes or-
dinary people around the Country hate
politicians, despise the government, and go
ballistic in Government offices.

Red, White And True Mysteries

Bonaparte, Washington And Jefferson
Known For All The Wrong Reasons

By Paul Niemann
He was a general,
born hundreds of years
ago. His first name was
so unique that he proba-
bly didn't even need to
tell people his last name.
Or his middle name, for
that matter, as it is
known throughout the
whole world. Yet he was
as American as baseball
and your mom's apple
He led his troops in a
well-known war that you
learned about in History
His name?
Napoleon Bona-
parte. And he wasn't re-
ally exiled to the island
of Elba. He wasn't mar-
ried to a woman named
Josephine, either.
He had something in
common with George
Washington and Thomas
Jefferson, but it had
nothing to do with being
the leader of his country
You probably didn't
know that George Wash-
ington was an agricul-
tural chemist long before
he was so well known. In
fact, he created many
new products from
plants. He is responsible
for axle grease, meat ten-
derizer and talcum pow-
der, among many other
products. He also was
the director of Ag Re-
search at Tuskegee Uni-
versity at age 36.
Like Napoleon and
Washington, there are
several things that you
might not have known
about Thomas Jefferson.
He had a daughter
who went on to become a
first lady, married to a

her fiance was killed in
service to his country
It is an age-old
theme. Since 9/11 nine
years ago, more than
five thousand American
servicemen have died,
primarily in Iraq and
Afghanistan. The vast
majority of them have
been younger than 25.
They have left behind
family, wives and in
some cases, children. It
is always a sad time for
those left behind who
must cope with loss.
The fact that most of
their life and dreams
were still ahead makes
the loss even more diffi-
Several years ago, I

after we graduated. Not

servicemen have died in
our nation's wars begin-
ning with the American

most expensive war in
our nation's history was

young men lost their
lives fighting for their
On Madison's monu-

the names of 298 young
men who went to war be-

their homeland and did

es, their families never
knew where they were
buried. Reckoning with
this loss must have been
devastating for the citi-
zens of our community
During World War
II, Madison lost about 30
young men, beginning
with Colin P. Kelly, Jr.
At 25, Kelly was one of
the oldest listed on the
monument near the
Four Freedoms statue,
dedicated to his memory
We have been fortu-
nate during the war
against Islamic terror-
ism; thus far, we have
lost none of our sons or
daughters in the current
We tend to think of
military casualties as
losses during wartime,
often in battle against
the enemy, but we suffer
many losses during
training as well. War is
a dangerous business by
definition, and the
preparation for war can
be equally hazardous. In
my Air Force career, I
frequently had to deal
with aircraft crashes, of-
ten fatal. When things
go wrong in the air, a pi-
lot doesn't have much
time to sort things out
before it's too late.
In seven years of op-
erational flying, my
squadrons lost either
one or two jets a year. In
test flying in the early
80s, we lost three air-
craft in two years.
About half these crash-
es were fatal. Attending
memorial services was a
recurring theme.
In my five years as a
commander, I only had
to do one death notifica-

tion. It happened on a
Sunday morning. The
victim had been missing
for several weeks, so I
had met with his wife
and knew the family sit-
uation well. Normally,
my wife and a chaplain
would have accompa-
nied me, but since it was
a Sunday morning, I
went with my wing com-
mander and his wife in-
stead. We sat on the
couch, and I broke the
news to her as gently as
possible. There was a
breakdown, but I think
she was prepared for
bad news.
Once the notifica-
tion was complete, we
went into the full sup-
port mode for probably a
week. Another wife was
always with her. I
brought the chaplains in
and we planned a memo-
rial service. We met
family members that
flew in from out of state
and settled them. Be-
tween meals and visits,
her home was a beehive
of activity
I'm not going to tell
you that it was easy it
wasn't, but once it be-
gan, I wouldn't have
wanted anyone else to
handle the job. It was as
much therapy for me as
it was for this young
widow and her family
This process takes a
dream, maybe a night-
mare, and turns it into
reality. There are a hun-
dred tasks to accomplish
and each one helps make
the transition to a new
life easier and more un-
derstandable. It takes
place everyday in the
larger military family,
and it is an important
part of closure.

On April 15, 1912, the RMS Titanic sunk
on her maiden voyage and over 1,500
people died. Fourteen years earlier, a
novel was published by Morgan Robert-
son which seemed to foretell the disas-
ter. The book described a ship the same
size as the Titanic which crashes into an
iceberg on its maiden voyage on a misty
April night. The name of Robertson's f ic-
tional ship was the Titan.

Constitution, is our America's charter. It sets forth
who we are and how we operate. It is what sets the
framework to protect our freedoms. It's not to be taken
lightly and ignored as many in Washington, D.C. seem
to believe. It's disheartening and scary to hear how so
little of our critical heritage is being taught today This
event is giving us the opportunity to highlight its im-
portance, protect it, and celebrate it."
Maultsby added that that the fact that our county is
named after the Constitution's primary author, James
Madison, makes it all the more appropriate for us to
hold this celebration in our county "Republican groups
are holding Lincoln-Reagan Day dinners all across the
state. But because of our association with President
Madison, our group felt it most appropriate to adopt
this theme. Getting our government, and really voters,
refocused on the constraints of the Constitution is, I be-

their offices in the metal front building donated to

Jacob Adams from Pinetta Elemen-

Cherry, a 2008 National Board Certified
Teacher, stated that she went through
the rigorous process to become a NBCT
because, "I wanted to make sure that I
was giving each of my students the best
that I had for the year that I had them. I
have learned to question every strategy,

I'm involved in to guarantee that every-
thing I present to my students is indeed

teacher and student are accountable for
learning, with the teacher assuming the
leading role."
Beverly Oro, a middle school student
from MCCS, introduced her band
teacher Gary Gazlay who stated in his
teaching philosophy, "My primary goal
as an educator is to motivate students to
truly take responsibility for their own
education by teaching them to engage in
learning. I have learned that students
will excel in the classroom and in life
when they are challenged to surpass
what they believe they can achieve."
Yolanda Smith Haynes was intro-
duced by Travecia Fead, one of her stu-
dents at MCCS. Yolanda Smith, in
sharing her philosophy of education,

stated, "I want to be a person that can bel
remembered for making a difference in
children's lives, and becoming a teacher
gives me the opportunity to instill values
worth believing in." As she shared the
difficult path which brought her to be-
come a teacher the audience was
brought to its feet.
Paige Richardson, a Pre-K student
from Lee Elementary School, introduced
her teacher, Vickie Sherrard. In her
teaching practices Vickie Sherrard said
that "It was rewarding to watch these
young students use their classroom ac-
tivities to develop thinking skills while
engaged in a visual arts activity and ac-
tive discussion with their peers. They
talked seriously about their ideas, used
their previous experiences with plays to

Practical Money Matters

Credit Score

Damage Control

By Jason Alderman
Although not as
unique as fingerprints
or snowflakes, credit
scores are highly indi-
vidualized and often
mysterious. Many fac-
tors determine your
score, which can change
overnight depending on
everything from last
month's credit card bal-
ances, to opening a new
account, to applying for
a car loan.
To help demystify -
and quantify how cred-
it scores are determined,
FICO recently shared in-
formation on the impact
certain negative actions
can have. For those not
as obsessive about credit
scores as I am, FICO is
the company whose pro-
prietary software is used
by major credit bureaus
to calculate the credit
scores they sell to poten-
tial lenders as a tool for
determining your credit-
But as FICO's Public
Relations Director Craig
Watts noted, the very
uniqueness of each per-
son's individual situa-
tion makes it difficult to
generalize. "Take two
people with excellent
FICO scores of 780," he
explained. "One might
have a mortgage, several
low-balance credit cards
and a 20-year credit his-
tory; the other has a
dozen open accounts,
hefty student loan bal-
ances and a car loan, but
no mortgage. Same
score, very different cir-
What they probably
have in common, said
Watts, are a history of
on-time payments, a low
ratio of outstanding
debt to available credit,
and a cautious attitude
toward taking on more
debt that, and no major
negative credit activity:
"If you have late pay-
ments over 30 days, re-
ceive a tax lien, or file for
bankruptcy, the toll on
your credit score can be
significant and long-last-
With the caveat that
actual point losses can
vary widely depending
on your individual situa-
tion, FICO did share
broad ranges for two hy-
pothetical scenarios:
One person has a 680
score and the other 780,
and each has a mort-
gage, car and student

No Credit Card Required

loans and several credit
cards. They differ over
factors such as amount
of credit limit used, late
payment record and
length of credit history
Exceeding a credit
card limit might lower
scores by 10 to 45 points.
A single late pay-
ment exceeding 30 days -
60 to 110 points.
Entering a debt set-
tlement agreement with a
creditor 45 to 105 points.
Losing property to
foreclosure 85 to 160
Filing for bank-
ruptcy has the most dev-
astating impact -
anywhere from 130 to 240
points in the scenarios
Surprisingly, people
with good-to-excellent
credit scores often lose
more points for negative
incidents than do those
with lower initial scores.
Watts explains that's be-
cause lower initial
scores already reflect
riskier behavior; not so
for high-scoring people,
so the appearance of
negative credit activity
on their otherwise spot-
less credit records may
drop their credit scores
The main reason to
be concerned about sig-
nificant point drops is
that falling into a lower
credit category could
hamper your ability to
qualify for a loan or
credit card or receive
lower credit limits, as

(NU) As homeowners struggle with the re-
cession and impact of declining home prices,
some are considering whether to continue paying
their mortgage or simply walk away from the
obligation. As a homeowner, when you contem-
plate the recent decline in your home's value, per-
haps below your mortgage balance, you may
consider options that normally would never have
entered your mind. Regardless of what you might
hear from relatives, friends or advisors, you need
to carefully consider the long-term impact of this

In many communities, the cost of renting can be
more than the after-tax cost of mortgage payments
on a house. Renting does not provide the long-term
benefits of ownership.
Even if your home's value has fallen signifi-
cantly, tax benefits and compounding appreciation
rates can still be on your side. U.S. tax laws still fa-

tax brackets. The tax shelter of deducting mortgage

went down your spine, chances are you haven't yet
organized your income tax paperwork, let alone
filed your return.
Even if you can't file or pay your taxes by April
15, it's vital to at least request an extension by then;
otherwise, the penalty on taxes owed increases dra-
matically generally an additional 5 percent of tax-
es owed for each month you're late, plus interest, up
to a maximum penalty of 25 percent.
However, if you file your return or request an
extension by April 15, the penalty drops to 0.5 per-
cent per month, plus interest. Contact the IRS early
if you won't be able to pay on time; they may even
waive the penalty, depending on your circum-

New IRS Deadline

Means Your 1099s

Could Arrive Later

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones

Traditionally, investors have received their year-end
1099 statements no later than the first week of
February, because the IRS imposed a Jan. 31 dead-
line for the mailing of these documents. Starting this
year, however, that deadline has been moved to
Feb. 15.
What does this mean to investors? All securities
firms will be impacted by the change. At Edward
Jones, we expect to mail about 77% of our clients'
1099s by Jan. 31.
However, the data that we report on our clients' con-
solidated 1099 tax statements comes to us from the
securities issuers e.g., corporations, mutual fund
companies, government and other entities that issue
securities. We cannot produce 1099s until we
receive this data. With the Feb. 15 mailing deadline,
we expect to receive some of this data after Jan. 31.
We will print and mail 1099s weekly in February as
we receive data, with all consolidated 1099 tax
statements mailed by Feb. 15.
Some 1099s Will Be Marked "Figures Not Final"
If you receive your Edward Jones consolidated 1099
after Feb. 15, be sure to note whether it is marked
"Figures Are Final" or "Figures Not Final." When we
do not receive final information from issuers of your
investments before the mailing deadline, we must
issue a "Figures Not Final" 1099.
If you receive a "Figures Not Final" 1099, be assured
that we will work to issue your finalized 1099 as
soon as we receive final data from the issuers of
your investments. You will receive a final 1099 no
later than mid-March.
What Can You Do to Prepare?
Work with your tax professional to schedule your
appointments after you expect to receive your final-
ized 1099s.
Be aware that you may not receive your Edward
Jones Consolidated 1099 Tax Statement by Jan. 31.
Enroll in Edward Jones Online Account Access,
which enables you to review and print your 1099s as
soon as they are available. This could be as early as
five to seven days before you receive them in the
Be sure to note whether your 1099 is marked
"Final" or "Not Final" and make your tax profession-
al aware.

ments to get your tax forms to your tax professional.

America Moves To Raise A Healthier Generation Of Kids

The Let's Move cam-
paign will combat the epi-
demic of childhood obesity
through a comprehensive
approach that builds on ef-
fective strategies, and mo-
bilizes public and private
sector resources. Let's
Move will engage every
sector impacting the
health of children to
achieve the national goal,
and will provide schools,
families and communities
simple tools to help kids be
more active, eat better, and
get healthy
To support Let's Move
and facilitate and coordi-
nate partnerships with
States, communities, and
the non-profit and for-prof-
it private sectors, the na-
tion's leading children's
health foundations have
come together to create a
new independent founda-
tion the Partnership for a
Healthier America which
will accelerate existing ef-
forts addressing childhood
obesity and facilitate new
commitments towards the
national goal of solving
childhood obesity within a
Helping Parents
Make Healthy Family
Parents play a key role
in making healthy choices
for their children and
teaching their children to
make healthy choices for
themselves. But in today's
busy world, this isn't al-
ways easy So Let's Move
will offer parents the tools,
support and information
they need to make healthi-
er choices for their fami-
lies. The Administration,
along with partners in the
private sector and medical
community, will:
Empower Con-
sumers: By the end of this
year, the Food and Drug
Administration will begin

working with retailers and
manufacturers to adopt
new nutritionally sound
and consumer friendly
front-of-package labeling.
This will put us on a path
towards 65 million parents
in America having easy ac-
cess to the information
needed to make healthy
choices for their children.
Already, the private
sector is responding. To-
day the American Bever-
age Association
announced that its mem-
ber companies will volun-
tarily put a clear, uniform,
front-of-pack calorie label
on all of their cans, bottles,
vending and fountain ma-
chines within two years.
The label will reflect total
calories per container in
containers up to 20oz. in
size. For containers
greater than 20 oz., the la-
bel will reflect a 12 oz. serv-
ing size. While more work
remains to be done, this
marks an important first
step in ensuring parents
have the information they
need to make healthier
Provide Parents
with a Rx for Healthier
Living: The American
Academy of Pediatrics, in
collaboration with the
broader medical commu-
nity, will educate doctors
and nurses across the
country about obesity, en-

across the country. To
help children parents,
teachers, doctors, coaches,
the non-profit and business
communities and others
understand the epidemic
of childhood obesity and
take steps to combat it, the
Administration has
launched a new "one-stop"
shopping website - to provide
helpful tips, step-by-step
strategies for parents, and
regular updates on how the
federal government is
working with partners to
reach the national goal.
Serving Healthier
Food in Schools
Many children con-
sume as many as half of
their daily calories at
school. As families work to
ensure that kids eat right
and have active play at
home, we also need to en-
sure our kids have access
to healthy meals in their
schools. With more than 31
million children partici-
pating in the National
School Lunch Program
and more than 11 million
participating in the Na-
tional School Breakfast
Program, good nutrition at
school is more important

than ever. Together with
the private sector and the
non-profit community, we
will take the following
steps to get healthier food
in our nation's schools:
Reauthorize the
Child Nutrition Act: The
Administration is request-
ing an historic investment
of an additional $10 billion
over ten years starting in
2011 to improve the quality
of the National School
Lunch and Breakfast pro-
gram, increase the number
of kids participating, and
ensure schools have the re-
sources they need to make
program changes, includ-
ing training for school food
service workers, upgraded
kitchen equipment, and
additional funding for
meal reimbursements.
With this investment, addi-
tional fruits, vegetables,
whole grains, and low-fat
dairy products will be
served in our school cafete-
rias and an additional one
million students will be
served in the next five
Double the number of
schools participating in the
Healthier US School Chal-
lenge: The Healthier US
School Challenge estab-
lishes rigorous standards
for schools' food quality,
participation in meal pro-
grams, physical activity,
and nutrition education -
the key components that
make for healthy and ac-
tive kids and provides
recognition for schools
that meet these standards.
Over the next school year,
the U.S. Department of
Agriculture, working with
partners in schools and the
private sector, will double
the number of schools that
meet the Healthier US
School Challenge and add
1,000 schools per year for
two years after that.
We are bringing to the
table key stakeholder
groups that have commit-
ted to work together to im-
prove the nutritional
quality of school meals
across the country.
New Commitments
from Major School Food
Suppliers: School food sup-
pliers are taking important
first steps to help meet the
Healthier US School Chal-
lenge goal. Major school
food suppliers including
Sodexho, Chartwells
School Dining Services,
and Aramark have volun-
tarily committed to meet
the Institute of Medicine's
recommendations within
five years to decrease the
amount of sugar, fat and
salt in school meals; in-
crease whole grains; and
double the amount of pro-
duce they serve within 10
years. By the end of the
2010-2011 school year, they
have committed to quadru-
ple the number of the
schools they serve that
meet the Healthier US
School Challenge.
School Nutrition As-
sociation: The School Nu-
trition Association (SNA),
which represents food ser-
vice workers in more than
75% of the nation's
schools, has joined the
Let's Move campaign.
Working with other educa-
tion partners, SNA has
committed to increasing
education and awareness
of the dangers of obesity
among their members and
the students they serve,
and ensuring that the nu-
trition programs in 10,000
schools meet the Healthier
US School Challenge stan-
dards over the next five

all embraced, and commit-
ted to meeting, the national
Let's Move goal. The Coun-
cil of Great City Schools
has also has set a goal of
having every urban school
meet the Healthier US
Schools gold standard
within five years. The
American Association of
School Administrators has
committed to ensuring
that an additional 2,000
schools meet the challenge
over the next two years.
These combined efforts
will touch 50 million stu-
dents and their families in
every school district in
Accessing Healthy,
Affordable Food
More than 23 million
Americans, including 6.5
million children, live in
low-income urban and rur-
al neighborhoods that are
more than a mile from a su-
permarket. These commu-
nities, where access to
affordable, quality, and nu-
tritious foods is limited,
are known as food deserts.
Lack of access is one rea-
son why many children are
not eating recommended
levels of fruits, vegetables,
and whole grains. And food
insecurity and hunger
among children is wide-
spread. A recent USDA re-
port showed that in 2008,
an estimated 49.1 million
people, including 16.7 mil-
lion children, lived in
households that experi-
enced hunger multiple
times throughout the year.
The Administration,
through new federal in-
vestments and the creation
of public private partner-
ships, will:
Eliminate Food
Deserts: As part of the
President's proposed FY
2011 budget, the Adminis-
tration announced the new
Healthy Food Financing
Initiative a partnership
between the U.S. Depart-
ments of Treasury, Agri-
culture and Health and
Human Services that will
invest $400 million a year to
help bring grocery stores
to underserved areas and
help places such as conve-
nience stores and bodegas
carry healthier food op-
tions. Through these ini-
tiatives and private sector
engagement, the Adminis-
tration will work to elimi-
nate food deserts across the
country within seven
Increase Farmers
Markets: The President's
2011 Budget proposes an
additional $5 million in-
vestment in the Farmers
Market Promotion Pro-
gram at the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture which
provides grants to estab-
lish, and improve access to,
farmers markets.

utes of active play each
day Yet, the average Amer-
ican child spends more
than 7.5 hours a day watch-
ing TV and movies, using
cell phones and computers,
and playing video games,
and only a third of high
school students get the rec-
ommended levels of physi-
cal activity Through
public-private partner-
ships, and reforms of exist-
ing federal programs, the
Administration will ad-
dress this imbalance by:
Expanding and Mod-
ernizing the President's
Physical Fitness Chal-
lenge: In the coming
weeks, the President will
be naming new members
to the President's Council

on Physical Fitness and
Sports, housed at the U.S.
Department of Health and
Human Services. The
council will be charged
with increasing participa-
tion in the President's
Challenge and with mod-
ernizing and expanding it,
so that it is consistent with
the latest research and sci-
Doubling the Number
of Presidential Active
Lifestyle Awards: As part
of the President's Physical
Fitness Council, the Presi-
dent will challenge both
children and adults to com-
mit to physical activity five
days a week, for six weeks.
As part of the First Lady's
commitment to solve the
problem of childhood obe-
sity in a generation, the
Council will double the
number of children in the
2010-2011 school year who
earn a "Presidential Active
Lifestyle Award" for meet-
ing this challenge.
Safe and Healthy
Schools: The U.S. Depart-
ment of Education will be
working with Congress on
the creation of a Safe and
Healthy Schools fund as
part of the reauthorization
of the Elementary and Sec-
ondary School Education
Act this year. This fund
will support schools with
comprehensive strategies
to improve their school en-

Core to the success
of this initiative is the
recognition that govern-
ment approaches alone

Hospital Endorses A Tobacco Free Madison
MCMH CEO forges agreement with MCHD and Big Bend AHEC

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The health consequences of tobacco use including
smokeless tobacco is no longer a subject of debate. It is
indisputable fact, proven by millions of lives and bil-
lions of dollars. Still, tobacco persists today, why? The
reason is simple.
It's the big bucks. It's because federal law still allows
it. It's because local policy ignores it. It's because Big To-
bacco is playing a big money game, and they play to win.
Tobacco prevention and cessation advocates have
gotten in their punches too, however. In a twisted sense
of split personality, Big Tobacco actually pays money to
the government to support efforts to eliminate tobacco.
This is the penalty for lying to the public for decades.
Taxes have increased as well, with packs of cigarettes
now over $5 per pack and twice that in some places. But
just walk into any convenience store and look around
the counter. Or for that matter, take a look a tobacco ad-
vertising all around that is aimed at youth. Big Tobacco
knows if they get teens hooked early, the warning labels
won't matter.
That's what has been, but fortunately Madison
County has several tobacco warriors who are working
with local employers to create new policies designed to
dramatically decrease and eventually eliminate tobacco
use by their employees and clients. Obviously, there is
an increased focus on healthcare providers, clinicians
and their facilities, since this is where patients go to ad-
dress the consequences of tobacco use. It's where they
go to get healed.
On Jan. 14, Doug Freer, tobacco prevention special-
ist with the Madison County Health Department and di-
--WTK^ :fU -.

ureene urnlisning, Inc. rnoio by iviicnael turlis, January zu, zu2u
Doug Freer, director of Tobacco Free Madison,
explains the importance of a tobacco-free facility, as
well as the deceptive practices of Big Tobacco to cre-
ate teenage addicts.

Preston Mathews (left), tobacco cessation consultant with Big Bend AHEC; and Doug Freer (right), to-
bacco prevention specialist with the county health department; present MCMH CEO David Abercrombie a
copy of the manual, "Treating Tobacco Use And Dependence, Clinical Practice Guideline 2008 Update." The
hospital executive joined the growing list of Madison County organizations that recognize the huge conse-
quences of tobacco use.

rector of Tobacco Free Madison; and Preston Mathews,
tobacco cessation consultant with Big Bend AHEC;
joined Madison County Memorial Hospital CEO David
Abercrombie to discuss these issues. The goal was to
forge an agreement regarding future tobacco policy, and
to introduce the staff to a manual titled, "Treating To-
bacco Use And Dependence, Clinical Practice Guideline
2008 Update."
"The guidelines present data that shows how a
healthcare provider's suggestions and support of client
cessation attempts greatly increases the success rate of
the clients cessation," Freer noted.
Beginning Jan. 28, the hospital has been hosting
workshops where the tobacco specialists have presented
this tobacco curriculum. The classes also qualify as con-
tinuing education for the attendees. More importantly,
the hospital is formally dedicated to improving tobacco
prevention and cessation efforts. There was also an
agreement that the new hospital will pursue a com-
pletely tobacco-free environment.
"The point is to Ask, Advise and Refer. In the past a
doctor may have said, 'You should really quit smoking,'
but did not facilitate the process. What we are asking is
for clinicians to ask if a patient is a tobacco user. If so,
we are advising them to quit and then refer them to the
available resources, like Quitline and Big Bend AHEC.
Further follow-up is then recommended upon subse-
quent visits to encourage the process. The new question
would simply be, 'How did the Quitline work for you?' or
'How did you like the class-
es?'" Mathews added.
"Our goal is to serve
the health needs of Madi-
1'" Ison County We are com-
S mitted to this cause, and
S" look forward to expanding
the relationship when we
construct our new facility,"
Abercrombie concluded.
Both tobacco advisors
emphasized their desire for

the community to know that Tobacco Free Madison is a
resource that provides information and support for to-
bacco-free policies in schools, businesses and organiza-
tions. TFM organizers are willing to provide signs that
promote awareness of tobacco policies including
breathe-easy zones or designated smoking areas as well.

education, contact Doug Freer at the Madison County
