with upraised hands, three newly-elected mem-
bers took the oath of office as Madison City Com-
missioners on March 11. Judy Townsend and Jim
Stanley won their districts in the March 9 election;
Rayne Cooks upset long-time commissioner Sumter
James for the District I seat. After being installed by
City Attorney Clay Schnitker, the three took their
positions. The board then chose Townsend as Mayor,
with Commissioner Jim. Catron as M~ayor Pro Tem.
The first item of business was an expression of
gratitude to James for his many years of service to
the city. He graciously yielded his chair to Cooks,
then departed.

A reported outbreak of a bacte-
ria known as clostridiumn difficile
at Madison County Memorial H-os-
pital has caused concern. The out-
break has been disputed by the
hospital's administrator.
Commonly called c.diff or CDF,
it is a bacteria that causes diarrhea
and other intestinal disease when
competing bacteria are wiped out
by antibiotics. Some people who get
the bacteria never become sick, al-
though they can spread the infec-
tion. The disease usually occurs
during, or following a course of an-
tibiotics.
According to the Mayo Clinic
web site, the most common symp-
toms of mild to moderate c. dif f in-
clude watery diarrhea three or
more times a day for two or more
days and abdominal cramping and


tenderness. In more severe cases,
C. difficile causes the colon to be-
come inflamed (colitis) or to form
patches of raw tissue that can bleed
or produce pus. Signs and symp-
toms of severe infection include:
watery diarrhea 10 to 15 times a
day; abdominal cramping and pain,
which may be severe; fever; blood
or pus in the stool; nausea; dehy-
dration; loss of appetite; and
weight loss.
According to sources, on Mon-
day, there were at least five? con-
firmed cases of c.diff at MCMH and
two more people were being tested
for the infection.
When asked about the number,
MCMH Chief Executive Officer
David Abercrombie said on Tues-
day "We have one patient with
symptoms of c.diff. We did have a
high level of four patients."
Abercrombie said that the


symptoms were those of mild to
moderate c.diff.
One concern about the outbreak
is that thne hospital is putting other
patients (including "swing bed" pa-
tients) in rooms with the patients
who are already infected ~with c.diff.
On Monday, there were a high num-
ber of swing bed patients.
Swing bed, also called Skilled
Nursing Care, is a Medicare pro-
gram designed to provide inpatient
care for those who need extra time
to heal or strengthen before return-
ing home or to a nursing home. The
term is derived from the idea that
the patient will "swing" from inpa-
tient acute care to return to the
same level of independence that
had before entering the hospital.
Many swing bed patients are nurs-
ing home patients or those who
have been admitted for rehabilita-
tion.

-This week's question: Do you support the State's proposed budget cut to public libraries?

To view and participate in our weekly online poll, visit www.greenepublishing.com.


Well, March 21, 2010 is being called an "historic day"
in America. I'Illhave to agree. March 21, 2010 will forever
be marked the day that America took a farther step away
from what our Founding Forefathers stood for, and took
a GTIANT step towards socialism as ObamaCare passed
the Hlouse 219-212.
ObamaCare has a mandate that requires nearly
every Ame~rican to be insured by 2014, or face! a pe~nal-
ty/fmne. H-owe~ver, the law provides an exemtion. for low-
income families. Isn't that what Medicaid is for now --
low-income families? Aren't the tax-payers of this coun-
try already funding a government fumetioned healthcare
(Medicaid) that is sending us into the deficit more and
more? If the government can't run the Medicaid pro-
gram well, what do you really think is going to happen
with ObamaCare?
Threats of lawsuits, calling ObamaCare unconstitu-
tional, are already being discussed, as soon as the Presi-
dent signs the new bml. It is unconstitutional to
REQUIRE Americans to buy something or not buy some-
thing. This is EXACTLY what ObamaCare does. This is
our government TELLNG us what we do, or do not,
H-AVE: to buy And, if we refuse to buy it, then, we~ will get
a hefty fine for "disobeying" the government. This is sup-
posed to bethe same government that founded this coun-
try by breaking away from England's rule and
governmental control.
ObamaCare is one Giant Step towards governmen-
tal control. ObamaCare is about more government intru-
sion, into our personallives. It isabout more government
intrusion into our country's businesses. Under this new
"plan" all small businesses have to provide insurance to
its employees, or pay a fine. (Government control -- do as
we say orwe wmlpenalize you.)
The country is in state of despair, economically, as
it is. The~ reason? Thet c~onom~y has had such, a hard hnit
in the last couple of years. Businesses have had to lay off
hundreds of thousands of employees, and businesses
(large and small) have declared bankruptcy or simply
gone out of business. The unemployment rate has sky-
rocketed, and there aren't enough businesses left out
there to hire everyone back on.
But wait -- now the government is going to add yet
anthr burd ond ath edy shrthinagbusinese of hds
it through this last recession is going to be hit even hard-
er with the thousands of dollars to pay health insurance,
or pay a fine (to the government.) Unemployment rates
will rise. Businesses will not be able to afford more work-
ers with, all the new governen madated hetalthcare
laws. The answer wil be....don't hire new employees.
The flip-side of the coin, for those supporters of Oba-
maCare, is that every American can now have coverage
whether they can afford it or not.
Answer: NOTHING is free. Every American will be
affected by this new law, with higher taxes, of some sort.
Rep. Eric Cantor called it a "trillion-dollar overhaul" that
would raise taxes, increase our national debt and reduce
our freedom of choice in health-care decisions.
If we "give away" all this healthcare, someone has to
pay the fine for it.
Our taxes WILL rise. There's no way to deny that.
There will be pe~naltie~s for those that don't buy health in-
surance. Income taxes wml go up, there will be new
sources of income tax, high income tax payers will have
a higher hospital tax, those who have high medical costs
won't be able to deduct as many of them, and the list goes
on and on.
Now, our senior citizens, the ones most afraid of
ObamaCare, under this new healthcare law, Medicare
Advantage will be eliminated, Medicare in general will
be hurt and its services will be cut.
ObamaCare is going to destroy healthcare in the
United States.
But, the sad, sad truth to all of this is not just our
healthcare. The sad truth revolves around control. This
is one! more way the government has gained control over
the American citizens. Our constitution gave the govern-
ment limited power, and was to keep it from having total
power of the country We are seeing our constitutional
rights being stripped right out from under us.
America.....the land of the free?

when the people fear their government, there is tyran-
ny; wohen the government fears the people, there is liberty. -


Fear, ladies and gentlemen, Fear your government.
Until then.....I'll see you around the town.

Wednesday, M/larch. 24, ~2010


By Paul Niemann
Since March is WComen's History Month, all of
the stories in this column this month will be about
... anyone want to take a guess? Anyone?
That's right women. This week's column is
about several women who used pen names as writ-
ers. A pen name, by the way, is a fictitious name
that a writer uses, such
as when Samuel
Clemens used the pen
name! of MLark Twain.
Speaking of pen
names, here are a few
others that were used
by famous writers:
Richard Saunders, Vic-
tor and Ms. Silence Do-
good. Was it possible
that Richard Saunders
was related to Ms. Si-
lence Dogood? The real
identity of each writer
will surprise you; you
will discover who they
were at thne end of the
story.
Flora Fairfield was
born in 1832 in Ger man-
town, Pennsylvania.
Most of her education
came from her father. -lz 5
Among her friends was
the writer Henry David
Thoreau. She served as
a nurse in W~ashington,
DC, during the Civil
War. She began publish-
ing poems, short stories Louisa M
and juvenile stories in
1851.
A.M. Barnard was also born in 1832 in Ger-
mantown, Pennsylvania. Like Flora Fairfield,
most of her education came from her father.
Among her friends was the writer Ralph Waldo
Emerson. In 1863 she wrote a book titled Hospital
Sketches that was based on her experiences as a
nurse, and it was this little-known book that kick-
started her career as a serious writer.
Sometimes a writer has a pen name which
does not become well-known, and she might
change her pen name to a different name and be-
come more successful with the new pen, name. The !
pen name is not usually what determines success,


but changing a pen name allows a writer to start
over and re-brand herself when she changes the
literary genre in which she writes.
That's what the writer formerly known as Flo-
ra Fairfield did. So did A.M. Barnard. You see,
both of these names were pen names of ... Louisa
May Alcott.
And in a case of art
imitating life, Louisa
May Alcott's character
Jo is based on her own
life in Little women.
Her three real-life sis-
ters represented Jo's
.,three sisters in the sto-
-ry: Meg, Beth and Amy.
S And like Ms. Alcott,
'd~~ Jo's character also
1~ I' ~EF~I 'Iwrote stories anony-
'i : mously.
Lr t So, which writers
P~~C were known by the pen
* names of Richard Saun-
ders, Victor and Ms. Si-
lence? Do good?
Richard Saunders
.. was the pen name of
Ben Franklin when he
wrote Poor Richard's
Almanack.
Victor was the pen
name used by poet Per-
cy Shelley, whose wife,
Mary Shelley, created
the story of Franken-
stein's Monster. Percy
had performed experi-
ae Alcott ments with electricity,
similar to what scien-
tist Victor Frankenstein did on his monster (many
people incorrectly assume that the monster was
named Frankenstein, but in reality, the fictional
monster had no name).
And, finally, Ms. Silence Dogood was the pen
name of a middle-aged widow who wrote an ad-
vice column for James Franklin's newspaper in
Boston in 1722. The writer used a pen name to hide
"her" identity because she knew that her brother
would not allows her to work at the paper.
It turns out that Silence Dogood wasn't mid-
dle-aged after all. In fact, she wasn't even a
woman; she was a 16-year-old boy by the name of
... Ben Franklin!

Iran considerable time to build a ca-
pability equal to Israel, either in
number or means of delivery. Be-
cause of its' small size, Israel is a
more compact target than Iran and
easier to attack.
For the foreseeable future, Iran
will have only one method to threaten
an attack on her neighbors land-
based missiles. The potential targetS
for her attacks Israel and the Arab
nations of the Persian Gulf. need
some protection in order to feel safer
from this threat. They can either opt
for deterrence like Israel or missile
defense (which Israel also possesses)
or both. If they go the less problem-
atic route of missile defense, the
United States can provide some of
this umbrella as well as technical as-
sistance.
No defensive system is foolproof,
and missile defense is no exception,
but it is getting better with testing
over time. Of course, even if you suc-
cessfully intercept a nuclear armed
missile, the environmental damage
could be significant plutonium is a
very poisonous element but that is
far less damaging than a mushroom
cloud over a populated city.
There is one scenario I haven't
mentioned until now the specter of
Iran giving a nuclear weapon or ma-
terials to a terrorist organization for
their use. For instance, how would
an organization like Hezbollah which
operates out of Syria and Southern
Lebanon use such a weapon against
the hated Israelis? Moreover, how
would we counteract such a threat?
This is the type of nuclear prolifera-
tion which we especially fear.
Here is what I think will unfold.
Iran will march unimpeded toward a
nuclear weapon capability and then
begin to enhance their capability. In
response, the region will "arm up,"
hopefully with cheaper and leSS
destabilizing defensive systems. I am
doubtful that sanctions, if and when
they come into play, will have much
effect on the situation. Our best hope
is to contain the Iranians with mis-
sile defenses and world opinion, fur-
ther isolating and undermining the
regime. Then possibly, the regime
will fall to the internal threat and be
replaced by a saner, more pragmatic
government than the revolutionary
movement which took over with the
fall of the Shah more than thirty
years ago.
It is a dangerous situation and
deserves our full attention and cleare-
estt thinking.

While ther are
many foreign policy is- '
sues that the Obama N
Administration must
deal with in a danger- Sc
ous world, the specter of
a nuclear-armed Iran JOc
tops the list. Most ex-Gu
perts beieve ctahat wle

possess a nuclear weapon within two
years time. Then they must match
the warhead with a delivery system
and test that weapon system before
becoming a credible threat. Then
they have to build a small arsenal.
I have been critical of how the
Obama Administration has handled
this threat, but the president and his
advisors deserve some slack no one
has a good hand to play in this mat-
ter. Since the ruling Iranian mullahs
are determined to develop this capa-
bility, there is little we can do to stop
them. Let's try to break this issue
down into parts and examine each to
better understand the threat and
what the future might hold.
First, why do they want the
bomb? Is it to deter a threat? I don't
think that is the answer. No one from
outside Iran is threatening the
regime. While the regime does face a
domestic threat from their own peo-
ple, nuclear weapons will not quell
internal dissent. If you examine
Iran's neighbors Iraq, Afghanistan,
Turkey, Pakistan and a couple of for-
mer Soviet states they are dwarfed
by Iran's size, population, wealth and
literacy. These regional neighbors in
no way threaten the Iranian mullahs.
It is true that the United States
has military forces in the region,
with a fleet off shore, two armies in
Iraq and Afghanistan, and signifi-
cant air assets in the Persian Gulf,
but no one in their right mind has
suggested that we are there to invade
Iran. While the regime may hold the
United States up as a "straw dog," we
really aren't threatening them. But
make no mistake, the United States
(and the world) has high-priority
strategic interests in the region -
that's why we're there.
Yes, there is a military option
where the US or Israel launch an air
attack against the Iranian nuclear fa-
cilities, but I don't foresee such an at-
tack. It would be far too hard and
dangerous to attempt to "take out"
the widespread and hardened facili-
ties.
So if Iran does not seek a nuke
for the purpose of deterrence, what
would they use them for? I can only
see two possible uses for an Iranian
nuclear weapon. First would be to
threaten the Jewish state of Israel.
Second would be to hold a major
source of the world's oil supply
hostage. In either case, Iran would
have to take the initiative as the ag-
gressor.
Israel has had a nuclear arsenal

criminals are trying to take advantage of residents
by posing census workers in an effort to steal vital
information or stake out property for theft. In re-
sponse, the Census Bureau has issued the follo~w-
ing:
By being counted in the 2010 Census you are
standing up for what your community's needs are.
That's why census takers are so important. A cen-
sus taker is a person from your community who is
hired by the Census Bureau to make sure that your
neighborhood gets represented as accurately as
possible. The census taker's primary responsibili-
ty is to collect census information from residences
that have not sent back their 2010 Census form.
The Census Bureau provides the census taker
with a binder containing all of the addresses that
didn't send back a filled out census form
The census taker then visits all of those ad-
dresses and records the answers to the questions
on the form
If no one answers at a particular residence, a
census taker will visit that home up to three times,
each time leaving a door hanger featuring a phone
number; residents can call the number on the
hanger to schedule the visit
The census taker will ONLY ask the questions
that appear on the census form. They will NEVER
ask for your Social Security Numbetr or personal
banking information (such as account numbers or
passwords).
Your privacy and confidentiality is our priori-
ty!
The census taker who collects your informa-
tion is sworn for life to protect your data under
Federal Law Title 13. Those who violate the oath
face criminal penalties: Under federal law, the
penalty for unlawful disclosure is a fine of up to
$250,000 or imprisonment for up to 5 years, or both.

The commissioners heard from Cammie
Frakes concerning Purple Day, a time to recog-
nize the devastation of epilepsy and the need to
support research into epilepsy, Parkinson's>
and other diseases. Frakes shared her own ex-
perience with epilepsy and encouraged the
board to pass a resolution asking citizens to
wear purple on March 16 to call attention to the
situation
Catron moved to approve the request; the
board approved unanimously.
Skip James reported on the possibility of
procuring a grant to purchase a ladder-
equipped fire truck for Madison and Madison
County. He referenced conflagrations that re-
quired trucks to come from Tallahassee and
from Valdosta, Ga. He said that the Madison
County School District, presently under severe
financial constraints, cannot assist in match-
ing grant funds, and he asked that the city split
a $25,000 shortfall with the county commission-
ers. This would raise the city's contribution to
$57,500.
After some discussion, Stanley and Cooks
moved to approve the request in principle pend-
ing the county commission's agreement. The
motion passed.
The commissioners also approved changes
in two ordinances that will permit interlocal
agreements with the Town of Lee relating to
sewer lines and lift stations extending service
to I-10.
The board discussed a request from the
Florida Department of Transportation to raise
or lower utility lines and manholes along Hwy.
53 S as the DOT paves that area. At Schnitker's
suggestion, they added a change in the city's in-
demnity for the project. Commissioners Myra
Valentine and Stanley moved to approve; the
motion passed unanimously.

Put Your Tax Refund to Work

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones

It's Tax Refund Season again. This year, if you're going to
get a check from your Uncle Sam, why not put it to work
to help you meet your financial goals?
Last year, the average tax refund was more than $2,700,
according to the IRS. The size of your refund, or whether
you will get one at all, depends on your individual circum-
stances. But if you are going to get a refund, plan ahead
for what you'll do with it. Here are a few possibilities:

*Pay down some debts. In these difficult economic
times, you may be carrying a higher debt load than usual.
If so, you may want to use some of your refund to pay
down some of these debts. The lower your debt pay-
ments, the better your cash flow and the more money
you'll have to invest for the future.
*Build an emergency fund. If you don't already have
an emergency fund containing six to 12 months' worth of
living expenses, you could use your tax refund to start
one. Without such a fund, you may find yourself constant-
ly dipping into your long-term investments to pay for unex-
pected costs, such as a new furnace or an expensive car
repair. Keep your emergency fund in a liquid account -
one that you don't draw on for your day-to-day expenses.

*Help fund your IRA. In 2010, you can put in up to
$5,000 to your IRA. Consequently, if you received a
$2,700 refund, you'd have more than half of what you
need to fully fund your IRA for the year. (If you're 50 or
older, however, you can contribute up to $6,000 per year.)
You might not think that your $2,700 would make much
of a difference in the long run. But by investing your refund
and giving it many years of growth potential, you could
end up with a sizable amount.

Consider the following: If you put $2,700 in your IRA, and
you earned, on average, seven percent a year for 30
years, you'd end up with about $20,000, even if you never
invested another dime. If you put $2,700 every year in that
same IRA, again earning an average seven percent annu-
al return, you'd end up with more than $270,000 after thir-
ty years. (These examples are hypothetical illustrations
and do not represent any currently available investments.)

You'd eventually have to pay taxes on your earnings, typ-
ically when you make withdrawals at retirement. And if
you qualified for a Roth IRA, you'd never have to pay
taxes on your earnings, as long as you had your account
for at least five years and didn't start taking withdrawals
until you were at least 59-1/2.

*Contribute to a Section 529 plan. If you have chil-
dren or grandchildren, you may want to establish Section
529 plans to help them pay for college. You can contribute
virtually any amount, and the earnings grow tax-free, pro-
vided the money is used for higher education expenses.
(Withdrawals used for expenses other than qualified edu-
cation expenses may be subject to federal, state and
penalty taxes. Contributions are tax-deductible in certain
states for residents who participate in their own state's
plan. Please note that a 529 college savings plan could
impact a beneficiary's ability to qualify for financial aid.)
You may be tempted to spend your tax refund on things
you want today but, with a little planning, you can use
it for things you need tomorrow.

Madison Garden Club President Dolly Ballard
called on all members who had cheerleader experi-
ence to join her in the cheer above in preparation for
the district meeting to be held in Steinhatchee on
May 14. From the looks of the packed room of mem-
bers attending the March 4 monthly meeting, she
won't have any shortage of participants. In fact, by
all accounts, the Garden Club is setting a standard
for enthusiastic support, which was particularly
well suited for guest speaker, Bob Bell.
Pharmacist by day, plant and floral arranger by
love, Bell wowed members and guests with his in-
struction and designs, which were constructed live.
Spectacular by all accounts, the arrangements fea-
tures unique use of color, line and theme.
"My designs evolve," Bell explained. "And while
there are some general rules to design that I use, I'Ill
definitely improvise."
Bell's designs have received regional and even
national recognition, and the group was amazed he
could put together such unique and impressive
arrangements in the span of 45 minutes. It certain-
ly came at no surprise that the arrangement fetched
several hundred dollars from a quick auction con-
ducted at the end of the meeting.
The designer incorporated a variety of plant
and flora in his works, further explaining the idea of
"weighting," and how to use vertical and horizontal
lines to bring the arrangement to life. In the end
though, the greatest praise was offered in the fre-
quent applause and sighs of amazement, not to men-
tion that half the group moved in closer and closer,
so as not to miss anything. Several members were
even seen drawing sketches for future reference. In
a word, it was incredible.

The lovely ladies with March birthdays received best wishes during the Madison Garden Club meeting
held on March 4. Pictured left to right are: Glenda Gordon, Ann Paquette, Joyce Primm, Helen Hembree John-
son, Elaine Economou, and Louise Smith, with Karla Rooks in front.


In other business, Inda Tinney gave a warm ded-
ication to Wilma Dickey, who was recently deceased
to the immense sadness of an entire community.
Comparing her life in a moving literary refer-
ence to Florence Nightingale, the Madison County
matriarch was said to be so warm and inviting that
being touched by her was like "putting your head
down on a pillow."
The group also celebrated the engagement of
member, Rebecca Miller, who recently chaperoned a
youth group to Wekiva State Park, a trip sponsored
by the Garden Club. The club also reminded mem-
bers to invite others to the Master Gardeners free
short course, to be held the morning of March l3, as
well as being urged to attend "Table Scapes" in Per-


lunch.

Lion Of The Year
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
During their regular weekly lunch meeting, which is held each Tuesday in
the conference room at Shelby's Restaurant, the Madison Lions Club recognized
Tim Dunn as Lion of the Year. Club President Lee FerDon presented Dunn a
handsome framed certificate acknowledging the accomplishment, while prais-
ing him for his contribution to the club and the community.
In other business, the Lions were making preparations for the next Fifth
Saturday Framers and Friends Festival set for May 29, where the club will be
conducting its customary "Candy Day" to raise money and awareness for the Li-
ons Club's vision health charities.
The club also voted to donate $100 to the Risoli family following their cata-
strophic loss due to a home fire. And lastly, the "Lion King," John Errickson,
who relocated to Madison County last year from San Diego where his achieve-
ments as a Lion were legendary, made a donation to the club's local benevolence
fund in remembrance of a recently deceased Lion he knew back in his home
club in California.

where we eat, drink,
play, work, rest. It's
where we live. It's where
we thrive. So, why aren't
more people taking a

wl, on d in tun, ,
prove our lives?
Recently, I began a
project for FCCLA (Fam-
ily, Career, and Commu-
nity Leaders of
America) called Envi-
ronmental Ambassador.
As a part of my pro-
ject, I had to take a survey
to determine my carbon
footprint. You can imag-
ine my surprise when I
discovered that my fami-
ly's carbon footprint ex-
ceeded the country
average by over two
times. Our footprint made
the world target look
miniscule when placed
side by side. I immediate-
ly jumped into action.
The first question
that came to mind was,
"What can we do, as a
family, to diminish our
wear and tear on the
Earth?" I read books,
searched the Internet,
and questioned people
who were doing it
"right," and managed to
come up with a few daily
tasks that can have a
great overall effect.
Recycle The most
obvious solution is to re-
cycle the things we use
daily so that they can be
cleaned up and made
anew. Some common
household items that can

A $100 gas card is something to be desired in to-
day's stressful economy. If one is an outdoorsman,
so is a gun cabinet with glass etching. If one is a
Florida State Seminoles fan, then an FSU helmet
signed by current Head Coach Jimbo Fisher and leg-
endary Hall of Fame Coach Bobby Bowden is the ul-
timate fantasy gift.
Where can one get any of these gifts without dol-
ing out a lot of cash?
The answer is to invest in a drawing being held
by the Madison County High School Cowboys foot-
ball team. Chances are being sold on the three
prizes.
The drawing will be held Saturday, April l7, at 2
p.m. at the Cowboys football booth. T-shirts and hats
will also be available for sale, along with the chance
tickets which cost only one dollar.
All proceeds will go towards the Cowboys going
to camps this summer, including the Fellowship of
Christian Athletes camp.


Keeley Smith
in most parts of the house
if you will just open your
blinds. Also, turn off you
electronics and appli-
ances when you're not us-
ing them. You'll save
energy and money!
A Little Goes a
Looong Way When
buying items, this is a
good rule to keep in
mind. Instead of grab-
bing things with lots of
fancy extra packaging,
opt for the more conve-
nient and small goods.
You can save space
and money, and elimi-
nate unnecessary
overuse of materials.
Reuse Do you have
a child or grandchild, or
just know some kids that
love to color? Instead of
throwing away that junk
mail or other scrap
pieces of paper, give it to
the children. Kids don't
care what they're draw-


be recycled are: paper,
aluminum cans, milk
cartons, cardboard box-
es, and plastic bottles.
Walk, Run, Bike -
The exercise wave is
constantly in motion,
and what better way to
get fit than to walk or
run, or you can ride your
bike. Not only is it good
for your body, but it's
good for our planet.
Don't get me wrong.
I'm not saying you
should completely ex-
punge cars from your
daily routine (I recently
got my learner's permit,
so I'm all about the auto-
mobile), but you should
consider walking if your
destination is within
walking distance.

so why should the lights

Hopefully you'11 take
some of these helpful
hints to heart. Don't
think that you, as one
person, don't matter, be-
cause if everyone thinks
that way, then we'11 have
7 billion people killing

Question :
Why do I need a crown? Won't just a filling do the
same or be just as good?

Answer:
Boy do I get asked this one a lot! Fillings are designed to
replace missing tooth stricture that has been dissolved by
tooth decay. But only up to a point. Once a filling is larger
than half the distance of the width of the tooth, the filling
actually weakens the tooth, and the tooth is at a higher risk
for cracking and breaking. Teeth that have large metal
fillings develop micro cracks over the years of hot and cold
foods along with chewing and grinding forces. The cracks
will often propagate slowly and then all of a sudden crack
off a portion of the tooth. Have you ever seen a small "star
crack" in your windshield from a pebble that hit the
windshield while driving on the highway? That crack can
sit there for months and not change at all. Then one
morning you go outside to the tnick when the temperature
dipped down to freezing. You look at your windshield and
the crack went all the way across over night. Same with
your tooth. Also, every time your tooth gives way and
loses a filling, more of the tooth structure is removed to
carvet rtefliong groove anuluntdhecis tsoomchanicaly
shrinkage which many doctors argue makes large tooth
colored fillings unacceptable for larger fillings. Some
shrinkage is easily modified and accounted for in a tiny
pin-hole filling, but can become a huge gap in the large
filling as it cures. The crown ensures that there is evenly
distributed compression forces applied to the root during
chewing which gives you the best chance for keeping your
tooth for a lifetime. Financially speaking, after you have
filled the tooth three times, you could have had a crown
for the same price but for a much longer tenn prognosis.
The crown is undoubtably the better choice.

According to a re-
cent press release, the
Madison County Health
Department is remind-
ing residents that March
is National Nutrition
Month, which is spon-
sored each year by the
American Dietetic Asso-
ciation to encourage
people to focus on eating
better. This year's theme
is "Nutrition from the
Ground Up". The theme
is a great reminder for
eating fruits, vegetables,
grains, nuts and beans to
create a healthy diet.
National Nutrition


Month is a good time to
take a good look at your
current diet. Start off
slowly and make changes
to work towards a health-
ier lifestyle. Try getting
the most nutrition out of
your calories. Choose
foods packed with vita-
mins, minerals, fiber and
other nutrients--and low-
er in calories.

Healthy eating tips.
Emphasizes fruits,
vegetables, whole grains
and fat-free or low-fat
milk and milk products.
Include lean meats,
poultry, fish, beans, eggs
and nuts.


These meats and
vegetables are low in sat-
urated fats, trans fats,
cholesterol, salt (sodi-
um) and added sugars.
Be aware of portion
sizes.
For more tips on
building your healthy
diet from the ground up,
contact the Leon County
Health Department at
850-606-8300 and ask to
speak to a nutritionist or
visit wwwo~.eatright.org
or wwwo~.nypyrantid.gov
to make your own
healthy plan.

For many Floridi-
ans with disabilities,
the choice between com-
petitive work and Med-
icaid assistance is all
too real. While many of
these citizens have a de-
sire to work and con-
tribute to the economic
vitality of their commu-
nities, Florida law
strongly discourages
against this. To qualify
for Medicaid assistance,
individuals must not ex-
ceed a low-income and
asset level. There are
exceptions for Supple-
mental Security Income
(SSI) recipients; howev-
er, current policy limits


The Partnership for
Work & Healthcare, a
Florida coalition com-
prised of more than 30
agencies statewide, is
encouraging legislators
to pass landmark legis-
lation this session that
would eliminate the
choice between taking a
job and having health-
care. According to the
Federal Ticket to Work
and Work Incentives
Act (TWWIA), individ-
ual states have the op-
tion to create a program
offering employed per-
sons with disabilities a
Medicaid "buy-in" op-
tion.
"Florida is one of
only 9 states not incor-
porating this work in-
centive option into their
state Medicaid plan,"
said 01ga Golik, a mem-
ber of the Partnership
for Work & Healthcare.
"This legislation, cham-
pioned by Senator Vic-
tor Crist, would provide
invaluable support to
citizens with disabili-
ties while simultane-
ously bolstering the
workforce, economy
and communities
across the state."


The proposed Work
Incentive Medicaid Cov-
erage initiative would
allow persons with dis-
abilities to enter the
workforce while retain-
ing access to needed
healthcare via the fol-
lowing:
Individual can earn
up to $39,000 or 250 per-
cent of the Federal
Poverty level.
Individual can ac-
crue cash assets of
$10,000 (individual) or
$15,000 (married).
Participants could
be charged a premium
based on a sliding scale
once earned income ex-
::== :: ercn::, he
"Ultimately, this
buy-in will enable peo-
ple with disabilities to
keep their healthcare
and participate in their
communities through
meaningful employ-
ment," said Margaret J.
Hooper, Public Policy
Coordinator for Florida
Developmental Disabili-
ties Council, Inc.
"These Floridians


should not have to
choose between work
and healthcare access."
Research conducted
by The National Dis-
ability Institute indi-
cates that a majority of
individuals with dis-
abilities surveyed
would try to obtain a job
if their Medicaid ser-
vices were not jeopar-
dized as a result. This
would positively impact
Florida in the following
ways:
Reduce dependence
on taxpayer dollars and
public assistance pro-
grams
Increase workforce

enues generated
Increase indepen-

will be able to make their payments on a quarterly payment plan, with pay-
ments spread throughout the calendar year, rather than having to make a large
lump sum payment at the end of the first quarter.
Specifically, HB 7033 makes the following key changes to the 2010 tax re-
quirements:
Reduces the amount of each employee's wages upon which the employer
pays the UC tax from $8,500 back down to $7,000 for 2010 and 2011.
Establishes a quarterly payment plan for 2010 and 2011 that lets employers
spread out their unemployment compensation payments over the whole year
without normal application of penalties or interest.
Eliminates all elements of the rate calculations in the current law that
would otherwise increase the tax for purposes of replenishing the Unemploy-
ment Compensation Trust Fund balance for 2010 and 2011.
Allows unemployed Florldians to receive additional extended unemploy-
ment benefits funded by the federal government.
Each and every member of the Florida Legislature is to be commended for
their votes today. They have listened to the outcry of thousands of Florida busi-
nesses and have responded by passing this critical legislation. AIF applauds
Senate President Jeff Atwater and House Speaker Larry Cretul for their lead-
ership and commitment in making this important bill the top priority of the
session and ensuring its passage in such a timely manner.


14A Madison County Carrier


Wednesday, March 24, 2010


The Florida Legislature has recently unanimously passed HB 7033 which
provides Florida employers with immediate relief from unprecedented unem-
ployment compensation tax increases that they were facing this year.
Without this important legislation, most Florida employers would be forced
to pay unemployment taxes at levels higher than 1200% over last year's
amounts. Plus, the full payments would have been due at the end of the first
quarter. Many Florida businesses simply could not pay these unexpected, exor-
bitant taxes without terminating more workers, cutting benefits or possibly
closing their doors all together.
Fortunately, AIF began working diligently with our legislative leaders a few
months ago to develop a way to alleviate and mitigate this year's tax burden. Be-
cause this law passed today, businesses will have lower tax bills this year and
Qualified Retirement Plan Distributions
IVust Begin By 70-And-A-Half
Penalties can be steep for non-compliance


According to The Elederlaw Fo-
rum, the IRS keeps track of birth-
days. It takes particular note when
you turn 70, because six months later
you may have to do something you
would rather not do: Begin withdraw-
ing monies from your IRA, 401(k),
403(b), or individual retirement ac-
count. This essentially includes all lo-
cations where your savings have
earned interest and have been safe
from federal and state taxation.
The withdrawals are called RMDs,
or "required minimum distribu-
tions." They must begin by April 1 of
the year following when you turn 70-
and-a-half.
The RMD amount will be based on
the December 31 value of the account
in the year prior to the year you turn
70-and-a-half. In all subsequent years
the RMD must be distributed by De-
cember 31. But qualified employer re-
tirement plans offer additional
flexibility, allowing you to delay taking
RMDs as long as you continue to
work.
"Does that mean I don't have to
start taking out monies from my re-
tirement accounts?" asked a 71~-year-
old senior helpline caller. He has
spent the last 20 years working for a
national banking system that main-
tains a contributory retirement plan.
Assuming it is "qualified," he would
not have to begin withdrawals until
April 1 of the year following his re-
tirement.
"When do you plan to retire?" the


representative asked. "I don't he re-
sponded. I've been rat-holing money
for 50 years. I worked for a processing
company for 30 years and now 20 with
this bank. I've never made big money,
but I've lived within my means and
taken full advantage of the tax shel-
ters built into both retirement plans.
It's confusing," he said.
Here is the current status: Re-
quired minimum distributions from
IRAs and defined contribution plans
were suspended in 2009, allowing
those typically required to take distri-
butions to further grow their account
values without penalties. But RMDs
returned in 2010. The representative
therefore advised him to contact hu-
man resources and verify that it is a
"qualified plan," exempt from the
RMD withdrawal. The failure to with-
draw a full RMD on time in any year
exposes a person to an IRS penalty of
50 percent of the required amount that
wasn't distributed.
Eventually the caller will have to
begin withdrawing monies from one
or both of his qualified retirement
plans. If he doesn't need the RMDs for
living expenses, he should consider re-
investing the after-tax proceeds into
tax-efficient accounts such as a mutu-
al fund or municipal bond fund; or in-
vest the proceeds in a 529 college
savings plan for his grandchildren.
Individuals at or beyond age 70-
and-a-half should ask their financial
advisor, accountant or phone the IRS
at 1-800-829-1040 to be sure.


The Fair Credit Re-
porting Act (FCRA) spells
out rights for victims of
identity theft, as well as re-
sponsibilities for business-
es. Identity theft victims
are entitled to ask busi-
nesses for a copy of trans-
action records such as
applications for credit re-
lating to the theft of their
identity
Indeed, victims can
authorize law enforce-
ment officers to get the
records or ask that the
business send a copy of
the records directly to a
law enforcement offcer.
The businesses cov-
ered by the law must pro-
vide copies of these
records, free of charge,
within 30 days of receiv-
ing the request for them in
writing. This means that
the law enforcement off-
cials who ask for these
records in writing may get
them from your business
without a subpoena, as
long as they have the vic-
tim's authorization.
The Federal Trade
Commission (FTC), the
nations consumer protec-
tion agency, enforces the
FCRA including this re-
quirement, which is
known as Section 609(e).
Here is some additional in-
formation to help your
business comply with this
provision of the law:
Q. Who must com-
ply with Section 609(e)
of the FCRA?
A. The law applies to
a business that has provid-
ed credit, goods, or ser-
vices to, accepted payment
from, or otherwise entered
into a transaction with
someone who is believed
to have fraudulently used
another person's identifi-
cation. For example, if
your business opened a
cell phone account in the
victim's name or extended
credit to someone misus-
ing the victim's identity,
you may be required to
provide the records relat-
ing to the transaction to


the identity theft victim or
the law enforcement off-
cer acting on that victims
behalf.
Q. What documents
must my business pro-
vide?
A. Your business must
provide applications and
business transactions
records, maintained ei-
ther by your business or
by another entity on your
behalf, that support any
transaction alleged to be a
result of identity theft.
Records like invoices,
credit applications, or ac-
count statements may
help victims document the
fraudulent transaction
and provide useful evi-
dence about the identity
thief.
Q. What are the pro-
cedures for requesting
these materials?
A. Requests for docu-
ments must be submitted
in writing. Your business
may specify an address to
receive these requests. You
may ask the victim to pro-
vide relevant information,
like the transaction date
or account number, if they
know it. You also can re-
quire that victims provide:
1. Proof of identity,
like a government-issued
ID card, the same type of
information the identity
thief used to open the ac-
count, or the type of infor-
mation you are currently
requesting from appli-
cants; and
2. A police report and
completed affidavit. Vic-
tims can use the FTCs ID
Theft Affdavit, available
at ftc.gov/idtheft, or anoth-
er affidavit you accept.
Q. Is it ever appro-
priate not to provide
documents?
A. You can refuse to
provide the records if you
determine in good faith
that:
you cannot verify
the true identity of the
person asking for the in-
formation;
the request for the


information is based on a
misrepresentation; or
the information re-
Quested is Internet naviga-
tional data or similar
information about a per-
sons visit to a website or
online service.
Your business may
not deny disclosure of
these records based on the
financial privacy provi-
sions of the Gramm-
Leach-Bliley Act (see
Subtitle A of Title V of
Public Law 106-102). Ney-
ertheless, you may refuse
to disclose them if state or
another federal law pro-
hibits you from doing so.
Q. Are there record-
keeping requirements of
Section 609(e)?
A. Section 609(e) does
not require any new
recordkeeping procedures
for your business.
