Lee Man Arrested On Child


Pornography Charges

Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Com-
puter Crime Center arrested Keith Strickland, 37, of Lee, Fla., and
charged him with ten counts of sexual performance of a child.


Investigators with
FDLE, the Madison
County Sheriff's Office,
and Immigration and
Customs Enforcement
executed a search war-
rant at Strickland's
home, located at 1216
Southeast Bisbee Loop
Thursday, after receiving
information that child
pornography had been


downloaded through the
Internet at the residence.
During the search, a
forensic review of com-
puters located at the
home revealed hundreds
of images of child
pornography.
Strickland was ar-
rested and booked into
the Madison County Jail.
Additional charges are


pending a complete
forensic examination of
all computers located in
Strickland's home.
FDLE is an active
member of the three In-
ternet Crimes Against
Children Task Forces in
Florida. There are 59 fed-
erally-funded task forces
nationwide created sole-
ly to investigate Internet


crimes against children
that include the online
sexual exploitation of
children and child
pornography.

A Newfound

Respect For




Enforcement
Mr Bembry,
Please allow my family and I to offer our sincere
ieI I g appreciation to both the City & Madison County, es-
lve I w We ll pecially the Police Chief and Sheriff.
and My uncle, Wallace Lyndon Pickels went to be
with Our Lord and Savior last week. I, myself, had to
fly in from San Antonio, TX, but being a former res-
ident of Madison County, I was uncertain about
what level of support we might receive from the city
and county My uncle's funeral was Friday, the 19th
and was held at Beggs'. As we left the funeral home,
we were directly behind the hearse, as I was driving
my Aunt Gloria (his wife), and Aunt Linda (her sis-
ater). We were escorted to the cemetery by a motor-
cycle patrol and a local chapter of the Patriot Guard
Riders. As we made our way through the streets of
Madison, your Police Officers had every major in-
tersection blocked and they were posted outside of
their vehicles. They even had their hands crossed in
front of their waists (not on their hips and none
were even talking to each other). As we made our
way out of town, every single car we passed pulled
over for the procession. Once we made it to Lee,
there was also a Deputy Sheriff blocking traffic so
that we could pull into the cemetery uninterrupted.
As a graduate of MCHS ('91), I was never a fan of
the local "cops", but after serving in the military for
12+ years (3+ as Military Police), I have a new found
respect for the men and women in blue/green.
^arch 6 Thanks again from a grateful family, to everyone
that made February 18th & 19th, a day for us be
proud of Madison County

ove You! Sincerely,
Robert Vickers
San Antonio, TX

WeLi


We, the staff at the newspaper business,
catch a lot of "slack" from our readers for
various things. Either we printed a sto-
ry/letter/stinger they didn't like, put their
name in the paper for something they did,
didn't print a story they thought we should
have known about, or didn't write the story
quite the way they thought we should have.
That's okay though, it all goes with the terri-
tory
However, this column is dedicated to ex-
plaining the difference between "article,"
"column and "editorial." These three words
often seem interchangeable, but in fact have
three totally different meanings. Many times,
someone has taken offense at an editorial
opinion and complained to others, and to us,
about our "biased articles" or "unfair report-
ing." We have also been criticized for letters
to the editor, which aren't our opinions at all,
but those of the letter's writer.
So for better clarification......
Articles can be hard news, soft news, en-
tertainment, features, in-depth articles, or
just informative articles. Above all, we try to
make sure the facts are accurate and fair. Per-
fection, we know, is unachievable, but it is
our goal. We try to be perfect in our pursuit of
accuracy. I can assure you, we do NOT mali-
ciously manipulate facts to make a point, nor
do we seek to prevent anyone's voice from be-
ing heard. When we make an error, we do our
best to reprint the article, or make a correc-
tion notice. Readers have always been invited
to submit letters to the editor, or guest
columns, to offer their view of any story.
Columns are the work of a single writer,
usually a staff member, but it can be someone
from the community that the staff has asked
to write a column. Columns can be humorous,
serious, opinionated, informative.....pretty
much whatever the columnist wants them to
be. Columns always include the columnists'
name, photo, and title of who they are. A col-
umn is a writer's individual work. It is not
necessarily the viewpoint of the newspaper,
in which it is published. It is the viewpoint of
the writer. Readers should learn to under-
stand that before reading the column.
Editorials are written and then placed on
our "Viewpoints & Opinions" page. No cred-
it/byline is given, in an editorial, because it
is meant to speak for the newspaper's editori-
al board. If someone other than a staff mem-
ber provides an opinion piece, it generally
will be labeled as a "Guest Column" and the
writer's name and photo will appear in the
column head. A "Guest Column" is usually a
compelling argument about a timely topic by
someone in a position of expertise. The guest
column is not necessarily the viewpoint of
the newspaper, and falls back under the gen-
eral guidelines played out in the paragraph
above about columns.
A newspaper's Editori-
al/Viewpoints/Opinion pages are different
than any other page in the newspaper. These
are the pages where you find opinions of oth-
ers (staff members and readers alike), debat-
ed issues, and also informative
ideas/columns. These are the pages where we
print letters to the editors and stingers.
Again, the letters to the editors and stingers
are not the viewpoints of this newspaper, but
are the writer's opinion. On these same
pages, you can also find cartoons,
games/crossword puzzles, thoughts of the
week, old photos from the past and other
"fun" things.
The Editorial/Viewpoints/Opinion page
is where the First Amendment lives and
breathes. In many countries it is forbidden to
speak unkindly about the government; city,
local, state, or national, or any other issue at
hand. In America, we have the freedom to
speak out, without fear, and debate these is-
sues. We, the staff, have the source to do this
through columns and editorials. You, the
reader, have the source to do this through
guest columns and letters to the editor. We
welcome your opinions and viewpoints on
life. That is what free press is all about say-
ing what we want without fear of the govern-
ment.
We thank you, our readers and patrons,
for your support and friendship. We welcome
your letters, your thoughts, and your opin-
ions. But, please don't falsify our motives be-
cause you don't understand the purpose of
the piece.
Until then..... I'll see you around the town.

The preamble of the
United States Constitu-
tion begins this way: We
the People of the United
States, in order to form a
more perfect Union, es-
tablish Justice, insure
domestic Tranquility,
provide for the common
defence, promote the gen-
eral Welfare, and secure
the Blessings of Liberty
to ourselves and our
Prosperity, do ordain
and establish this Consti-
tution for the United
States of America.
When I moved to
Madison in 1997, I decid-
ed to become a "Madison
scholar." To me, that
meant I needed to study
closely the enduring
legacy of our fourth
president, namely the
Constitution. You see,
James Madison is gener-
ally known as the Father
of Constitution. After
all, it was Madison who
called for the 1787 con-
vention in Philadelphia
to address the failures of
the Articles of Confeder-
ation drafted shortly af-
ter the Declaration of
Independence. He also
kept the secret notes of
the two month delibera-
tion that would become
the reference for the
Federalist Papers and
our best guide to origi-
nalist interpretation of
what the founders
meant when they estab-
lished our form of gov-
ernment more than two
centuries ago.
What a remarkable
legacy for the diminu-
tive Virginian (he stood
5'2")! You cannot pick
up a serious daily or
weekly periodical in this
country and not see
some article about a
Constitutional issue.
Madison died in 1836 but
his work endures.
Recently, I heard a
commentator refer to
the Constitution as a
"conservative docu-
ment." I suppose that is
true. When our Found-
ing Fathers broke away
from a tyrannical and
overbearing govern-
ment (England), they
sought to put protec-
tions in place from that


situation from recur-
ring. They created a sys-
tem of checks and
balances between the
legislative, executive
and judiciary branches.
They felt it important to
enumerate rights of in-
dividual citizens to pro-
tect each of us from the
long reach of govern-
ment. And they re-
served the rights not
enumerated in the Con-
stitution to the individ-
ual states, protecting
our Federal system.
They did all of this
and more to "secure the
blessings of liberty to
ourselves" and those of
us who would follow. In
that sense, the Constitu-
tion is a conservative
document.
The fundamental
theme of the Constitu-
tion is "what are the lim-
its of government to the
secure the rights of
man?" Progressives and
modern day liberals
look upon the role of
government in an en-
tirely different manner.
Their theme is "what
can government do for
the people?" One in-
volves freedom while
the other does not.
Just to underscore
the issue, President
Roosevelt suggested in
1944 that we needed a
second Bill of Rights
that would enumerate
what the government
would provide for its
citizens. This is a
theme our current pres-
ident has picked up on
as well.
Which view is cor-
rect? That is the
essence of the funda-
mental political strug-
gle in our country today
Many political leaders
in our country today
want to encroach upon
our liberty in order to
give us things (health


care, a green world,
stronger labor unions
etc.) or spread the
wealth. In many cases,
they feel they can run
roughshod over public
opinion they have
been elected to make
these decisions; our job
is to obediently follow.
A year or so after
coming to Madison, I
had the opportunity to
hear the late Mallory
Horne speak about an
organization he helped
begin in Tallahassee,
the James Madison In-
stitute (JMI). That very
day, I mailed in a mem-
bership application and
have faithfully read
their studies and publi-
cations ever since. In
my opinion, JMI is the
most important public
policy "think tank" in
our state. What Her-
itage is on a national
scale, JMI is to Floridi-
ans.
What does JMI
stand for? The James
Madison Institute is a
Florida-based, nonpar-
tisan, nonprofit re-
search and educational
organization dedicated
to advancing such time-
less ideals as economic
freedom, limited gov-
ernment, federalism,
traditional values, the
rule of law, and individ-
ual liberty coupled with
individual responsibili-
ty. If you believe in
these ideals, you should
strongly consider join-
ing JMI.
Tomorrow night,
Madison County Repub-
licans will gather at Di-
vine Events to hear Bob
McClure, CEO of the
James Madison Insti-
tute, talk about Consti-
tutional principles. It
promises to be a grand
evening about a very im-
portant and always time-
ly topic.

River Jam, parades and sporting events.
Williams said he would also like to thank local
law officers, including Madison County Sheriff Ben
Stewart, Suwannee County Sheriff Tony Cameron
and the Florida Highway Patrol, for being coopera-
tive with him at accident scenes.
Williams' biggest thanks go to the Lord and to
his family (including his wife and four daughters).
He said he is thankful that his wife and daughters
are so supportive of him being involved in freelanc-
ing.
"Two of my daughters are also freelance pho-
tographers," he added.

"Our Family Chain"
We little knew that morning,
God was going to call your name,
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you,
You are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again....

The family of Mrs. Lucile Balloon Aikens is
most grateful to all who were so kind and
thoughtful during the passing of our dear
loved one. Words cannot express our
gratitude for your countless acts of kindness
shown to us with your prayers, calls, visits,
flowers, food, and outpouring of love and
support. May God richly bless each of you is
our prayer. We love you so much!

55-Plus Club Learn Staying Fit Can Be Fun

Speakers discuss fun activities with 55-Plus Club


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
"The United Methodist Cooperative
Ministries is made up of eight churches
and five pastors devoted to supporting
our community, providing services and
activities like the 55-Plus Club and the
Thrift Store," explained Ruth Herndon.
"I'm filling in today for Linda Gas-
ton, who is out for surgery We all know
her tireless dedication, and ask everyone
to keep her in prayer," she added.
Opening up by expressing concern
for her friend and club leader, who is ex-
pected to return soon no worse for the
wear, Herndon captured the cama-


raderie that is the cornerstone of the 55-
Plus Club. Providing timely information
regarding services affecting seniors is
another. So, on Feb. 10, when several of
the club's members took the microphone
to describe a variety of enjoyable and
beneficial activities conveniently avail-
able to seniors throughout Madison
County, listeners got a double dose of
fun.
Kirk Pittman spoke first, opening
with a few whimsical stories that really
brought down the house. Then practical-
ly speaking, he invited everyone to join
him the third Tuesday of each month at
noon at Grace Presbyterian on SR 53 for


a community lunch. Nell Ring followed
him, also discussing a Grace Presbyter-
ian program a fitness class especially
designed to accommodate all ages and
levels of fitness.
"Let's do some neck exercises," Ring
announced. She then walked the group
through a variety of neck stretches and
routines that loosened laughs while it
loosened bones. She also emphasized
that all of the class activities are very
low impact and useful even if full mobil-
ity isn't initially possible. The class
meets Monday and Thursday from 4-5
p.m.
Sylvia Catron closed the presenta-
tions with an update about, and invita-
tion to join, Keenagers. Playfully
reminding all that the title was
"Keenagers" and not "Teenagers," she
detailed the outreach program spon-


scored by First Methodist Church of
Madison. "We've taken trips around the
region and the country The events and
outing are usually quarterly, but some-
times more often depending on partici-
pation. It's all very fun though. Our
Christmas and Valentine's dinners are
always a big hit, among others."
Additional business included an up-
date of recent facility improvements by
trustee Sonny Rollins, as well as a re-
quest for volunteers to assist at the Thrift
Store, which is open Wednesday, Thurs-
day and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 2
p.m. A big "thank you" also went out to
Program Coordinator Betty Williams for
continuing to introduce fun and timely
topics, and to First UMC for providing
such a tasty lunch.

Michael@greenepublishing.com.


The 55-Plus Club was bouncing with excitement, as speakers described sev-
eral fun activities available in Madison County. Pictured left to right are: Kirk
Pittman, Nell Ring, Betty Williams, Ruth Herndon and Sylvia Catron.



Jackson Takes


Awards In First


Gymnastics Meet


By Fran Hunt
Special from the Monticello News and
the Jefferson County Journal
Jefferson County resident, 10-year-
old Jenny Jackson, took two first place
wins and two second place wins to be
named first place all-around winner. It
was in her first meet of the season dur-
ing the Gym Force Classic gymnastics
meet. The meet was hosted at Tully
Gym in Tallahassee, Jan. 16.
Jackson took first-place wins in
two categories. Routines performed on
the floor, scored her highest total with
9.125 out of a possible 10. Her routine


on the balancing beam also earned a
first place win.
She also took second-place finishes
in both her performance on the paral-
lel bars and in the vault. The four
places elevated her to be named first
place all-round.
Jackson is the daughter of Danny
and Lisa Jackson of Monticello. Dan-
ny is the owner of Jackson's Drug
Store in Greenville. Jenny, a student at
Aucilla Christian Academy, has been
competing in gymnastics since about
the age of five and is a member of the

Curves Of Madison

Hosts Food Drive To

Benefit Local Families

Club Offers Freebies For

Both Existing And Potential

Members Who Participate


Curves of Madison is
encouraging women in
the area to show their
philanthropic strength by
participating in the annu-
al Curves Food Drive.
Even though donat-
ing food to families in
need is its own reward,
the club is offering com-
pelling incentives for both
existing and potential
members who participate.
From March 1 to 31,
Curves of Madison will
collect non-perishable
items and monetary dona-
tions for food banks in the
local area. The goal, ac-
cording to Judi Wyche of
Curves of Madison, is for
the community to come
together to help families
in need. "At the core of
our business is the mes-
sage that women are
stronger when they rally
together, and that is the
point we hope to bring
home with our food drive,"
said Wyche. "We want to


show our community just
how powerful the generos-
ity of our members can
be."
According to Wyche,
members who donate a
bag of groceries or make a
minimum donation of $30
during the month of
March will receive a
reusable Curves grocery
freezer bag for free. Non-
members who do likewise
between March 8 and 20
can join Curves for free.
Curves will waive the ser-
vice fee to join.
Wyche says that as
part of this effort, Curves
of Madison will be partic-
ipating in a company-
wide contest for the most
food drive donations col-
lected by Curves locations
across the nation. Win-
ners will receive one of
several cash prizes to be
donated to their 1ocal food


bank. Each year, Curves
locations collectively do-
nate millions of pounds of
food to feed the hungry
"We hope women in
the Madison area will
come together and partici-
pate in this initiative,"
added Wyche. "Even if
you're not thinking about
joining a gym, you can
still drop off your dona-
tions. There are so many
families right here in our
own community who
need our help."
Our next FREE
weight loss class will be
held on Tuesday, March 9
at 6 p.m. Call 973-4700. This
class is open to members
and non-members.
For more information
visit Curves of Madison,
located at 249 SW Range
Street, Madison.

Lagrena wooas
I had been taking
blood pressure medica-
tion for years. After work-
ing out at Curves for a
year, the doctor has taken
me off of blood pressure
medication completely. I
save over $16 per month
not having to take pre-
scription medication and I
love it. Curves works!


Becky Bishop
I had been working
out at Curves for six
months when my doctor
took me off TWO choles-
terol medications, Zocor
and Zetia. The savings
from not having to pur-
chase cholesterol med-
ication, pays for Curves.
Working out at Curves at
least 3 times per week
has kept me healthy and
my cholesterol is normal.
Curves works!


renny vvoruen
Since joining
Curves, my doctor has
taken me off one of my
diabetes medications.
The savings has paid for
Curves. Before Curves, I
suffered daily leg pain
and back pain. Working
out at Curves has
strengthened my back
and the circulation in my
legs has alleviated my
leg pain. Walking alone
did not take away the
pain. Working out at
Curves did. I love Curves.

By Fran Hunt
Special from the Monticello News
Awards for Aucilla Christian Academy junior
varsity boys and girls basketball teams, were pre-
sented last Friday morning, Feb. 12.
JV girls Coach Richard Watt said of the team,
"We had a slow start this season and were down 0-
5, then we won the next seven of 10 games to end
the season 7-8. They have come a long way and
have really improved throughout the course of the
year." He then issued each of the team members a
certificate of participation and thanked the girls
and the parents for their continued support
throughout the year.
He then presented team members with certifi-
cates of participation and the plaques to the win-
ners. Pamela Watt received the Best Offense
award. "She was our leading scorer and had the
highest field goal percentage on the team," said


Coach Watt. He added that Pamela averaged 10
points per game.
Ashley Schofill was presented with the Best
Defense award. "She loved playing defense and
has a lot of grit on the floor," said Watt. "She real-
ly put a lot into the defense and I'm very proud of
her for that." He added that Schofill also had the
highest number of steals on the team.
Brooke Kinsley received the Most Valuable
Player award. "Brooke worked very well on both
the offense and defense. On offense, when we need-
ed just one basket, she was the one we would try to
get the ball to. She was also very strong when we
needed a defensive back. We would utilize her be-
cause she is a tough match-up for anyone to guard
due to her very high level of athleticism."
During the boys' awards, Coach Richard Bur-
kett issued each member of the team with certifi-
cates of participation and trophies to the boys


winning the awards.
Josh Wood was presented with the Coach's
Award. Coach James Burkett said Wood always had
a very good attitude, he was always smiling, and he
served as a good influence to the other players.
Cody Kelly was named the Most Improved Play-
er. "Cody was our most improved player," said Bur-
kett. "There was a huge difference in the way he
played last year and the way he played this year. He
has improved greatly He worked hard and he would
hustle. He shot much better this year and he con-
tinued to improve as the season progressed."
Tyler Jackson received the award for the most
Valuable Player. "Tyler was a leader both on and
off the court. He did everything that was asked of
him and he could lead the team," said Burkett.
"Tyler would pass the ball to those players who
could make a shot and when we needed him, he did
whatever it was that he had to do."

By Fran Hunt
Special from the Monticello News
The Aucilla Christian Academy varsity Lady
Warriors softball team now stands 4-1 on the season
after snagging victories in the past two contests.
The Lady Warriors faced off against Altha for the
first time in a few years, Feb. 19 and Aucilla ham-
mered their opponent, 14-2. The game was called af-
ter the fifth inning due to the ten-run rule.
"The girls played well overall," said Head Coach
Edwin Kinsey "We committed no defensive errors
and hit the ball fairly well. The pitching was a little
slower than what we are used to, but the girls need
to learn to adjust and be patient at the plate. Every-
one got in the game and did a great job."
Taryn Copeland pitched a complete game, fac-
ing off against 20 batters, striking out 7, giving up
no walks and 2 runs on 3 hits.
Kaitlin Jackson went 1 for 2, with an RBI, had 3
walks, scored 2 runs and had 4 stolen bases.
Brooke Kinsey went 1 for 4 with 1 RBI, had 1
walk, scored 2 runs and had 2 stolen bases.
Copeland went 2 for 3 with 3 RBIs., had 2 walks
and scored 1 run.
Ashley Schofill went 3 for 5 with 2 RBIs, scored 2
runs and had 2 stolen bases.
Sunnie Sorensen went 1 for 3 with 2 RBIs and
scored 2 runs.
Brooke Stewart went 2 for 3 with a double, 1 RBI,
1 walk and scored 3 runs.


Pamela Watt went 1 for 4 and scored 1 run.
Nikki Hamrick went 0 for 2 with 2 RBIs.
Stacie Brock went 1 for 2 with an RBI.
Brooke Kinsley went 1 for 1 with an RBI.
Taylor Pridgeon went 0 for 1 and scored a run.
On Feb. 23 the Lady Warriors went up
against FAMU for the first time in many years be-
cause though they are in the same district as Aucil-
la, FAMU was unable to field a team. The Lady
Warriors walloped their opponent 19-0. The game
was called in five innings due to the ten-run rule.
"Again, the girls played well," said Kinsey.
"Everyone got in the game, both in the field and at
the plate. Once again the pitching was slower then
what we are used to, but the girls seemed to do a bet-
ter job being patient at the plate and swinging at
good pitches," he added. "The ball was not put in
play much by FAMU so there were not a lot of op-
portunities for a defense, but the few times the ball
was put in play the girls made the outs and commit-
ted no errors."
Schofill pitched a complete game, faced 17 bat-
ters, struck out 11, gave up 2 walks and no hits.


Jackson went 1 for 3,
stolen bases.
Kinsey went 2 for 2
with 3 RBIs, had a double,
ripped an in-the-park
home run, was walked 3
times and scored 2 runs.

HEALTH


(S eAle


According to a recent report confirmed by the
St. Petersburg Times, jewelry manufacturers that
once used lead in children's jewelry are now using
something even more toxic a metal called cadmi-
um.
The U.S. consumer chief is now warning Asian
manufacturers in particular against the use of cad-
mium, following an Associated Press investigation
that looked into the contamination of kids' jewelry
sold in the U.S.
"In lab testing for the AP, the most contaminat-
ed piece of children's jewelry contained 91 % cadmi-
um by weight. The cadmium content of other
contaminated trinkets, all purchased at national
and regional chains or franchises, tested at 89%,
86% and 84% by weight.
"The testing also showed that some items easily
shed the heavy metal, raising additional concerns
about the levels of exposure to children.
"Cadmium is a known carcinogen. Like lead, it
can hinder brain development in the very young, ac-
cording to recent research.
"Children don't have to swallow an item to be
exposed they can get persistent, low-level doses
by regularly sucking or biting jewelry with a high
cadmium content.
"To gauge cadmium's prevalence in children's
jewelry, the AP organized lab testing of 103 items


6>6?ad7mi m


bought in New York, Ohio, Texas and California. All
but one was purchased in November or December.
"The results: 12 percent of the pieces of jewelry
contained at least 10 percent cadmium.
"Some of the most troubling test results were
for bracelet charms sold at Wal-Mart, at the jewelry
chain Claire's, and at a dollar store. High amounts of
cadmium also were detected in The Princess and
The Frog movie-themed pendants.
"'There's nothing positive that you can say
about this metal. It's a poison,' said Bruce A. Fowler,
a cadmium specialist and toxicologist with the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. On the
CDC's priority list of 275 most hazardous sub-
stances in the environment, cadmium ranks No. 7."


Flu Vaccination = Your Best Protection


(NAPS)-For people
with certain medical
conditions, the flu can be
particularly serious and
lead to a worsening of
chronic health condi-
tions. Complications can
include pneumonia,
bronchitis, sinus infec-
tions, and ear infections.
For example, people with
asthma who have flu
may experience asthma
attacks, and people with
congestive heart failure
may experience a deteri-
oration of this condition
triggered by the flu, ac-
cording to the Centers
for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC).
"People at high risk
for complications from
influenza cannot afford
to take flu lightly Both
seasonal flu and 2009
H1N1 flu [sometimes
called "swine flu"] virus-
es are serious, and peo-


ple with underlying med-
ical conditions need to
know that vaccination is
the best defense," says
Dr. Anne Schuchat, di-
rector of CDC's National
Center for Immunization
and Respiratory Dis-
eases.
Schuchat explains
that the majority of fa-
talities from both 2009
H1N1 and seasonal flu
are among people with
underlying medical con-
ditions. These condi-
tions can include
chronic lung diseases,
asthma, diabetes, heart
disease, kidney disor-
ders, blood disorders,
cancer, neurodevelop-
mental conditions or a
weakened immune sys-
tem, among many oth-
ers. A complete list of
conditions is available at
www.cdc.gov/hIlnl
flu/risks.htm. While


there is little seasonal flu
vaccine remaining, CDC
continues to encourage
those at highest risk
from flu complications to
seek seasonal flu vac-
cine, in addition to re-
ceiving 2009 H1N1
vaccine, as recommend-
ed.
If you have any high-
risk medical conditions
and develop flu-like
symptoms, you should
call your health care
provider and seek med-
ical care immediately
Unless your provider
says not to, keep taking
your medications for
your medical conditions.
Your doctor may recom-
mend that you take anti-
viral drugs that can
reduce your symptoms
and help prevent serious
flu complications. Anti-
viral drugs work best
when administered with-


in 48 hours of the onset
of influenza symptoms.
Beyond flu vaccina-
tion, you should also
take everyday preventive
actions to protect your-
self from flu. Wash your
hands often with soap
and water; avoid touch-
ing your eyes, nose and
mouth; cover your nose
and mouth with a tissue
when you cough or
sneeze; avoid contact
with sick people, and
stay home when sick.
Don't let the flu into
the mix this season. Get
vaccinated. For more in-
formation, talk to your
state health department,
visit www.flu.gov,
www.cdc.gov/flu and
www.cdc.gov/ h1nlflu or
contact CDC at (800)
CDC-INFO (800-232-4636).

Question:
Will I be able to run the Boston Marathon
after I get my teeth bleached?
Answer:
I love this question. The other question I
get asked is will I be able to sing after I get
my teeth cleaned? The answer for the Boston
Marathon is yes, you can run the race, but
only if you could do it before. You can only
sing in the choir or play the piano if you could
do it before.

Can I drive myself home after Nitrous
Oxide laughing gas? Same answer...YES,
you can drive home, but only if you could
drive before. That is the other fabulous
benefit of Nitrous Oxide. Not only does it
help you relax in the office. Not only does it
make you feel like you have 3 glasses of
Champaign with those bubbles tickling your
nose. It is completely and quickly reversible.
The way to reverse nitrous oxide is to breath
100% oxygen (not room air, oxygen) thru the
mask for 5 minutes "by the clock." It is just
amazing (and disappointing to some) that it
does go away so completely and so quickly.
By the time they leave the office they are
back to normal and can still drive home.

MONEY


Consumers should
have seen it coming a mile
away. In May, Congress
passed the Credit Card Ac-
countability, Responsibility,
and Disclosure (CARD) Act
of 2009, which included lots
of new rules designed to
protect consumers from
predatory practices by
banks and credit card com-
panies, such as hidden fees
and sky-high interest rates.
The new rules, which went
into full effect on Feb. 22,
threaten to take a big bite
out of the $15 billion in
penalties and fees that the
industry collects each year.
So what have banks and
card issuers done? They've
come up with new fees.
With a full 44% of
American households car-
rying a balance on their
credit cards, the CARD Act
was designed to protect con-
sumers by forcing banks
and credit card companies
to eliminate confusing lan-
guage in their agreements
and statements, make the
terms of their credit cards
easier to understand and be
more accountable to con-
sumers and the govern-
ment.
Protections That the
CARD Act Offers
The legislation
weighed in at 1,155 pages of
nauseating detail (almost as
bad as those confusing cred-
it card agreements.) Here is
a summary of the provi-
sions that are most helpful
to consumers:
No more unfair rate in-
creases Credit card compa-
nies are notorious for
increasing the interest rates
on your credit cards at any
time, for any reason, or for
no apparent reason at all.
Got yourself a fantastic "in-
troductory rate" on a bal-
ance transfer? One late
payment or a problem on a
different credit card could
cause a credit card company
to take away that favorable
rate and replace it with a
sky-high rate. The CARD
Act eliminates these prac-
tices.
No "universal default" -
Over the years, more and
more credit card companies
adopted the practice of giv-
ing you a high "penalty
rate" if you defaulted on
any other debt and that de-
fault (late payment, non-
payment, etc.) was reported
to a credit agency No more.
Credit card companies can't
penalize you for what's go-
ing on with your other
debts.
Keeping favorable in-
terest rates The interest
rate for purchases on a new
credit card cannot change
for the first year, and any
promotional rate offered by
a credit card company must
last at least six months.
Your rate can't be "retroac-
tively" increased on a pro-
motional rate until you've
been at least 60 days late
with your payment.
Changes to fee calcula-
tions Banks and credit
card companies must give
consumers consistent pay-
ment cycles of at least 21
days, can't automatically
charge "over the limit fees,"
and can't continue to use
"double cycle billing" (a way
to charge you interest on
your balance twice, even if
you've paid it off) to calcu-
late interest.
Limitations on stu-
dent's credit The law at-
tempts to protect college
students from their own bad
behavior by preventing
credit card companies from
issuing cards to anyone un-
der age 21 without a co-sign-
er. This action sounds nice,
but it naturally ruffled a lot
of feathers as the age of ma-
jority is 18, and at that age
young people can enter into


legally binding contracts
and generally behave like
adults... except when it
comes to credit cards.


Plain language Appli-
cations, statements, and oth-
er notices about your credit
card must use clear wording
and readable type, rather
than the traditional micro-
scopic "fine print," to ex-
plain the terms of your
credit card.
If your bank or credit
card company wants to
change the terms of your
agreement to your detri-
ment, they have to give you
45 days' notice of what
they're changing. No more
sneaking up on consumers
with last minute changes.
And they have to give con-
sumers the option of closing
their accounts if they refuse
the changes.
Banks and Card Is-
suers Find a Way to Get
Their Fees Anyway
The rules hit on some
of the most abusive (and lu-
crative) practices used
against consumers by banks
and credit card companies.
So what is a bank or credit
card company to do in the
face of losing a major rev-
enue source thanks to these
new consumer protections?
Come up with new ways to
charge those fees, of course!
Before the new rules
even went into effect, banks
and credit card companies
were finding new fees to hit
consumers with. The first
was a $1 "statement fee" for
cardholders. If you believe
these statistics from late
2009, there are over 630 mil-
lion credit cards in circula-
tion in the United States.
Consider a $1 monthly fee to
each for each of those cards,
or $12 per year. That's more
than $7.5 billion annually
that credit card companies
could potentially extract
from cardholders. Not a bad
start at chipping away at the
fees the companies lost
through the CARD Act.
Credit card companies are
also adding or increasing
annual fees or reducing the
value of "rewards" pro-
grams.
But some of the
changes being made by
credit card companies are
far more sneaky and sinis-
ter-sounding:
Rate rebates -Since
they can't increase rates
retroactively anymore (un-
less you've been two months
late with your payment),
banks and card issuers are
playing new games with in-
terest rates. The companies
are experimenting with
placing sky-high interest
rates on accounts, but offer-
ing a "rebate" in the 10%
range if you continue to pay
on time. They're sucking in
consumers with the
promise of a lower rate
through the rebate, know-
ing that most consumers
will never earn the rebate
and will actually pay the
higher rate for the entire
term of special deal.
Consenting to over the
limit fees The CARD Act
prohibits over the limit fees
unless consumers consent.
In the past, a credit card
company would allow you to
exceed your credit limit, but
then charge you a fee for do-
ing so. Now they have to get
your consent to do that, and
if they haven't gotten your
consent, they must decline
the transactions that would
put you over the limit. Many
consumers don't under-
stand how this works, and
are ending up inadvertently
"consenting" to being
charged an over the limit
fee.
Since credit card com-
panies can't proactively in-
crease interest rates at will,
the best way to guarantee
that consumers' rates will
go up anyway is by chang-
ing their accounts to vari-
able interest rates. As the


prime rate goes up or down,
the rate you pay on your
credit card will fluctuate as
well. But the game gets even


better, as some banks are us-
ing variable rate that are
"up only." Your rate will
never go down, even if the
prime rate goes down, but
every time the prime rate
goes up, the rate on your
credit card increases too.
How to Protect Your-
self
It's clear that banks
and credit card companies
have teams of people who
sit around all day coming up
with new ways to get fee rev-
enue out of customers, com-
pletely defeating the spirit
of the CARD Act. Oh sure,
these companies will likely
follow the law to the letter.
They have to. But there is
plenty of room for new and
creative ways to get money
out of consumers without
violating them.
So what can consumers
do to protect themselves?
Don't be passive about your
credit cards. Don't assume
that because of this new
law, you're automatically
protected by the predatory
practices of banks and cred-
it card companies. You need
to actively monitor your ac-
counts and thoroughly read
all of the information they
send to you.
John Ulzheimer, presi-
dent of Consumer Educa-
tion for Credit and a credit
scoring and credit reporting
expert, says that banks and
credit card companies are
playing "fee whack-a-mole,"
creating new fees to replace
whatever is prohibited by
the new legislation.
Ulzheimer recommends
that consumers carefully
shop around for the best
credit card and pay down
their balances as quickly as
possible. They need to ac-
tively monitor their credit,
especially if their data has
been compromised and they
are more susceptible to
identity theft.
The key for consumers
is being proactive about
their credit situation, moni-
toring what is going on with
their accounts each month
and working to pay down
their balances. Credit card
companies are notorious for
being sneaky and exploita-
tive. Don't let them do it to
you. The only way to com-
pletely avoid these under-
handed tactics is by
refusing to do business with
them. Let your wallet do the
talking, and do everything
you can to avoid predatory
credit card companies.

CARD Act Takes Effect
Consumers still urged to beware


What Does Low Inflation Mean for
Bond Owners?

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
If you're like many people, you may pay a lot of attention to
the day-to-day price movements of your investments. But to
create and maintain an effective investment strategy, you also
need to look at the "big picture" specifically, the economic
and market forces that can affect your investments' perform-
ance. And one of those factors is inflation.

Of course, inflation has been fairly tame lately. In fact, some
consumer prices fell through much of 2009, according to the
Bureau of Labor Statistics. Will the mild inflation environment
continue?

It's risky to try to predict the course of any economic develop-
ment. Yet some key signs point to continued low inflation. For
one thing, unemployment remains stubbornly high. Fewer
people working means fewer people spending, which lowers
the demand for goods and services. Also, we are currently
not producing anywhere near as much as we could, given our
productive capacity, according to the Federal Reserve (Fed).
When this gap exists, the economy can typically expand with-
out triggering higher inflation.

If inflation does remain low for the near term, the Fed is
unlikely to raise short-term interest rates significantly; it typi-
cally raises rates in an effort to "cool down" an overheated
economy. Consequently, if inflation stays low, you may be
looking at continued low interest rates, at least for a while.
This would affect all types of investments, but it's especially
relevant to fixed-income vehicles, such as bonds.

Assuming short-term rates stay low for a while, what oppor-
tunities should you consider for your bonds? For one thing,
you may want to expand your holdings beyond short-term
bonds; longer-term bonds usually offer higher interest rates
as compensation for inflation risk, which increases over time.

If interest rates do rise, however, the value of existing bonds
tends to fall; no one will pay you the face value of your bond
when newer ones are issued at higher rates. But because
they have a long future stream of interest payments that
wouldn't keep up with current rates, long-term bonds typical-
ly adjust more than short-term ones.

To protect yourself against interest rate risk the risk that
your bonds will lose value if rates rise you may want to
consider building a "ladder" containing bonds of varying
maturities. When rates rise, you might be able to reinvest the
proceeds of your short-term bonds into new ones that carry
the higher rates. And if rates fall, you'll still collect larger inter-
est payments from your longer-term bonds which would
also typically fetch a premium price if you needed to sell them
before they matured.

Keep in mind, though, that while a bond ladder may help pro-
tect you somewhat against interest rate risk, you need to con-
sider other factors, such as credit risk the risk that the
bond issuer will default or be unable to make principal or
interest payments and market risk the risk that you
could lose some or all of your principal as the value of your
bonds fluctuates. You can help combat these risks by consid-
ering quality, investment-grade bonds.

If it's suitable for your investment objectives, risk tolerance
and financial circumstances, a bond ladder may help you pre-
pare for changes in inflation and interest rates. And by being
prepared, you can avoid negative behaviors, such as hasty
decisions and excessive trading, while you position your port-
