In the center of town, a majestic build-
ing stands. The building gleams as a bea-
con to the guiding light of any civilized
society. It represents the law. In the court-
room upstairs, men have been set free
when they have been charged with crimes.
Others have been found guilty and were
sentenced to prison terms. Justice has
been on the menu and it is served with dig-
nity and honor.
In November 1912, a former court-
house, situated where the current one
stands, burned to the ground. The flames,
however, did not destroy the law.


On Wednesday, June 16, the Madison
County Commission will meet and discuss
placing a monument on the courthouse
lawn. The monument will recognize the
Ten Commandments, the historic basis for
the laws that the country follows.
James Howes, pastor of Hanson and
Rocky Springs United Methodist Church-
es, will speak on behalf of the Madison
County Ministerial Association, who wish
to get the monument placed at the court-
house. The monument has been donated
and paid for by private individuals.
The county commission will meet at 4
p.m. that evening. It is a pubic meeting and
anyone can attend.

Ivan Johnson, Mladison County school bus supervisor, found himself in a sticky situation on the last
day of school. He received a call from some bus drivers who asked him to get to the bus barn immedi-
ately. When Johnson arrived there, he discovered his truck completely decorated with post-it notes. The
drivers said that every day they would usually find one or several notes attached to their windshield, so
they decided to repay the favor. Shown left to right: Yolanda Brown, driver of bus number 4; Christina

Barksdalee Founndaton



The Shirley A. Barksdale Fioundation Board extends an invitation to the
community to visit and use the Barksdale Farm in Pinetta. The 240-acre
farm, one mile west of Pinetta, was left by Shirley Ann Barksdale to those
who are willing to create and care for the farm as a recreational and educa-
tional park. While her special interest was children, especially those with
emotional, mental and physical challenges, the farm is now available to be
used by all ages, schools, churches, other organizations, families and indi-
viduals. The potential uses are many. This is a beautiful woodland setting
with an historic farm house (with a working kitchen, heat and air); histori-
cal farm equipment; tobacco barn; riding and hiking trails; a barbecue and
smoker; picnic tables; public bathrooms and outdoor showers; and areas for
primitive camping.
They especially welcome thez schools ofT t he a rea to use the farm facilities
for life-skill training for studeltn ts vI t h s pcla l needs. as well as churches, busi-
nesses and organizations tol use thet famll forI1 mleetings, retreats and other

zens view terrorism as a serious
threat to the U.S. wellbeing. Sadly,
the same survey shows that 40 per-
cent of citizens view the federal
debt as the most serious threat to
the U.S. wellbeing. (Healthcare
costs come in a close second place
with 37 percent).
Never in the history of Ameri-
ca has our national debt been, so
high. Never in American history
has the national debt worried so
many Americans. While we are still
living in the aftermath of 9-11, we
have a tie among those who believe
our national debt is actually to be
feared more than terrorists, them-
selves.
And who should we blame for
this? George W Bush of course.
During President Bush's eight-
year term, the national debt in-
creased a total of 4.9 trillion
dollars. During President Obama's
17 months in office, the national
debt has already increased 2.4 tril-
lion dollars. Do thne math. going at
this rate, it will take Obama LESS
THAN THREE YEARS to increase
our debt to what it increased dur-
ing EIGHT~ YEARS with President
Bush.
And let's not leave out the name
blame game with Democrats vs. Re-
publicans. As long as everyone is
going to blame George W and the
Republicans for our national debt,
let's remember that budgets and
spending do not all come from the
President. They come from Con-
gress, and the party that has con-
trolled Congress since 2007 has
been the Democrats. But yet the
President and his party are so busy
wanting to point fingers that we
hear more about wcho they think is
to blame, than what they are going
to do about it.
Again, man up and start work-
ing on the solution. (FYI, the stimu-
lus package and the Cash For
Clunkers is/was NOT the solution.
Just made our problems worse.)
Until then..... I'll see you
around the towin.

On Memorial Day, the President of
the United States lays a wreath at the
foot of the tomb of the Unknown Sol-
dier in Arlington. National Cemnetery
to honor all of our veterans, past and
present. Our so-called commander in
chief was too busy to be bothered by


something so trivial. He was taking a
trip to Chicago. His trip was more im-
portant to him than our veterans. It is
disgraceful and disrespectful. God

The! nil teak - Dav 50O and


counting.
At what point in the last 50 days
did it become obvious to Washing-
ton that this was actually a REAL
catastrophe? After 49 days, the
President is quoted as saying "so I
kknow whose a** to kick" in re-
u guards to the oil spill/cleanup. Was
n this statement supposed to make us
feel better by leading us to believe
that he is actively trying to solve
this "problem"? After 49 days, Pres-
ident Obama finally sat with the
Cabinet to discuss this crisis, and
loudly proclaimed that he had actu-
ally visited the oil spill area three
whole times.
What really gripes me is the
continued effort to blame another
administration for the oil spill.
While speeches are being written,
and time taken to point fingers at
someone else, the oil is ruining the
Gulf Coast, and several states'
livelihood. Meanwhile, our overly-
Spaid/under-worked White House
administration is trying desperate-
ly to convince us they care and are
"handling it" and of course that it's
not their fault. W~ho cares? Just fix
the problem.
I grew up continually hearing
my father say to us, "Don't bring
me problem, bring me solutionn"
It's time to quit the name blame
game, and find a solution.


Dear Jacob,
I read your story
about the hog problem
in Madison. I can tell
you first hand about
those hogs. I've been
trying to get rid of them
for months with no


luck. Last night they son should put out

my yard and pasture out
here on highway 360.
Everyone says they will
get rid of them but no-
body shows up to do
anything. Maybe Madi-

and tired of them. Yo

Al Gore's marriage
A family friend of Al and Tip-
per Gore, Sally Quinn actually told
CBS that George W. Bush could be
blamed for the upcoming divorce.
Seems like losing the election is
just something the two of thnem
can't get over.
Come on, Al and Tipper; man-
up and take responsibility. Quit
blaming other people and circum-
stances. The fact is your marriage
is failing. It's not George W. Bush's
fault. It's not the fact that you lost
the presidential election. Fact is,
your marriage could not withstand
the stress it faced and the twvo of
ya'll failed at it. PERI-
OD.

bly go wrong in this

There is a new
study which reveals
that we are spending
twice as much on can-
cer treatment as twenty
years ago. Thne reason
for this huge increase is
not the cost of cancer-
fighting drugs but
rather, that more cancer
patients are receiving
treatment. Does this
mean that in order to
cut health care costs,
we'll need to ration
care?
The two govern-
ment sponsored enter-
prises (GSE) most
responsible for the fall
2008 financial meltdown
are ignored in the De-
mocrat's financial re-
form bill. Talk about
missing the elephant in
the room!
I've got good news
and bad news. The good
news is you have health
insurance. The bad
news is that we can't see
you right now. But hey,
you've got insurance!
Have you noticed
that politicians don't
lie? Instead, they "mis-
spoke." If it looks like a
lie; sounds like a lie;
smells like a lie; it must
be a lie!
Am I upset by those
who apologize for
America's actions? You
bet I am! I'm fiercely
proud of my country.
We haven't always been
right, but we're way
ahead of whoever is in
second place.
It would appear that
no one in the Obamna

random thoughts on the

According to a Pew
Research poll, the most
religious people in our
country live in Missis-
sippi, followed by Al-
abama, Arkansas,
L~ouisiana, South. Car-
olina, and Tennessee.
Now you know why
it's called the Bible Belt.
Too bad North Florida
isn't a state.
Some readers com-
plain that I never offer
an encouraging word
about Barack Obama,
but that's not true. Just
recently, I read that the
Administration is offer-
ing loan guarantees to
the Southern Company
to construct a nuclear
power plant in Burke,
Georgia. Good for
them.
This business of
sexual predator is
tricky, but I think we're
making a big mistake
when we paint everyone
with the same brush.
On one end of thne spec-
trum, we have someone
like this Cooey fellow
who kidnapped, raped
and murdered that little
girl in Crystal River. On
the other end of the
spectrum, we have a 17-
year-old high school boy
who's dating a 15-year-
old. Clearly they are
not the same.
Iran has taken a
seat on the UN's Com-
mittee on International
Rights. I don't know
whether I should con-
demn the Obama Ad-
ministration 's
Ambassador Susan Rice
for allowing this to hap-
pen without objection,
or merely to write this
off as another example
of the UN's irrelevancy.
Over the past twen-
ty years, there have
been 18 perfect games
(27 up, 27 out) in base-
ball history and so far
this year, we have two.
Amazing.

prefer ignorance; if
they actually did read
and study the legisla-
tion, they might find
that it comports to Fed-
eral law. Imagine that.
There's no question
that the G~ulf oil spill is
an environmental dis-
aster of the first order,
but I wonder how it
compares to the Nazi U-
boat campaign off
America's shores?
In 1942, the sub-
marines sank more
than 160 ships off the
east coast and Gulf of
Mexico. About half
were oil tankers.
Did thne White
House offer Representa-
tive Joe Sestak a cushy
job to get him to with-
draw from the Pennsyl-
vania Senatorial
primary? Now that Ses-
tak has beaten 30-year
veteran Arlen Specter
for the Democrat nod,
there is more interest
in the answer to this
question.
Update: the White
House says that Bill
Clinton offered the job
to Sestak to pave the
way for Spector's re-
election. The job waS

REGIONAL CRIME & ROM PAGE ONE


Financial Moves to Help Stay-at-
home Spouses

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones


Not all households have two wage earners. By
choice or circumstance, either you or your spouse may
be out of the work force for an extended period of time.
But that doesn't mean you can't make progress toward
your joint financial goals, such as a comfortable retire-
ment. It does mean, however, that you need to careful-
ly review your situation and make the right financial
moves.

For starters, consider one of the best retirement-say-
ings vehicles you have available: an Individual
Retirement Account, or IRA. Even if your spouse isn't
earning income, he or she can open a "spousal IRA" to
which you, as the income-earning spouse, can con-
tribute. (Keep in mind, though, that you must file a joint
tax return if you contribute to a spousal IRA.)
Depending on your income level, you can designate a
spousal IRA as either a traditional IRA, which grows
on a tax-advantaged basis, or a Roth IRA, which can
grow tax-free, provided your spouse has held the
account for at least five years and is at least age 59/2
before taking distributions. And a spousal IRA has the
same contribution limits $5,000 in 2010, or $6,000
if your spouse is 50 or older as a traditional or Roth
IRA.

Clearly, if you want to increase the cumulative oppor-
tunities for building tax-advantaged resources for both
your retirements, a spousal IRA can be an attractive
option. Furthermore, if your spouse allocates his or her
IRA funds to investments that complement rather
than duplicate those investments inside your IRA'
the spousal IRA can prove to be a valuable tool for
diversifying your overall holdings. While diversification,
by itself, cannot guarantee a profit or protect against
loss, it can help reduce the effects of volatility on your
portfolio. To help achieve this diversification between
your IRA and the spousal IRA, you may want to work
with a financial advisor. Another move you can make
to help your stay-at-home spouse is easy to accom-
plish but also easy to overlook namely, updating
your beneficiary designations on your 401(k), IRA,
other investment accounts, life insurance policies and
all financial and legal documents. This step is particu-
larly important if you've been divorced or widowed,
and souinwantoto be sure of r sta~y-at-home spose
intended for him or her..

Of course, in this day and age, "stay-at-home" status
can change quickly. If your spouse enters or re-enters
the work force, you as a couple should consider
adjusting your financial plans. Your spouse can contin-
ue contributing to the spousal IRA you've established,
but he or she may now have other opportunities in
which to save for retirement, such as a 401(k) or simi-
Iar employer-sponsored retirement plan. And if your
spouse has been out of the work force for a while, it
will be important for him or her to contribute as much
as possible to a retirement plan.
In any case, whether your spouse stays at home or
returns to the work force, you'll want to be proactive in
making sure he or she doesn't get left behind on the
road to financial security.

pornography, said Thomas E Kirwin, United States
Attorney formthe N rhern Dis rct ofFlo d.Stts

District Court in Gainesville in January of this year,
alleged that between November 2, 2009, and Novem-
ber 30, 2009, Babik knowingly received, distributed,
and possessed materials depicting minors engaged
in sexually explicit conduct. A statement of facts
filed in connection with Babik's plea to the informa-
tion states that on November 2, 2009, an investigator
with the North Florida Internet Crimes Against
Children Task Force determined that on 326 occa-
sions between June 2008 and November 2009, an IP
address assigned to Babik offered known child
pornography files for distribution. On November 30,
2009, investigators executed a federal search warrant
at Babik's home. Babik cooperated during the inves-
tigation, and confessed to downloading child pornog-
raphy using his file sharing system. Forensic
analysis of the computer system recovered from
Babik's house revealed a significant volume of child
pornography videos. Babik admitted that he was
aware that his computer files contained images of
children engaging in sexual acts with other children
and with adults.
Babik faces a mandatory minimum sentence of
five and a maximum sentence of 20 years' imprison-
ment for this offense. Sentencing is scheduled for Au-
gust 2, at 1:30 p~m., before Chief United States District
Judge Stephan P. Mickle.
The case is a result of an investigation by the
Gainesville Police Department, the Alachua County
Sheriff's Offce, the Federal Bureau of Investigation,
and the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Chil-
dren Task Force. The investigation was part of the De-
partment of Justice initiative, Project Safe Childhood.

Other olt t laes Leer" aid Miler, "in this
school year, they can have time to move toward im-
plementation of school uniforms." The district wide
policy would take effect for the 2011-2012 school year,
she said.
In the lower grades, Lee Elementary is the only
Madison County school without a uniform policy.
The motion June 1 was made by School Board mem-
ber VeEtta Hagan and seconded by Kenny Hall to ap-
prove a uniform policy for Lee Elementary School's
pre-k through 5th grade.
agahair BarottAlford and Susie Williamson voted
Prior to the vote, Principal Jack McClellan pre-
sented a recent survey of Lee Elementary parents to
the School Board. Out of 75 parents participating in
the survey, 20% were in favor and 51% were against
the requirement for children to wear uniforms to
school. He said the number of students is 220 at the
school.
McClellan said that in looking back at dress
code infractions at Lee Elementary, there had been
HOne in the past two years. Lee students are not cur-
rently required to wear certain colors, shirts, pants,
slacks, trousers, shirts, blouses, shoes or belts dur-
ing school hours.
After the survey was presented June 1, School
Board member Kenny Hall said to Jack McClellan,
"I think you went into this not wanting it (uni-
forms)."
McClellan replied, "I did 25 years in the military,
if you say we're going to do uniforms, then we'll do
it. "
On May 18, the School Board dress code com-
mittee cited the following benefits to a unified dis-
trict wide policy: students transferring to another
school within the District would also have uniforms,
reduction in dress code infractions, cost savings to
parents and safety while on school trips.

With Flag Day approaching June
14, the American Legion Post #224 in
Cherry Lake is collecting United States
flags that are unfit to fly The American
Legion is planning a Flag Retirement
Ceremony on June 14 to dispose of any
unserviceable U.S. flags.
"The proper way to destroy a U.S.
flag is to burn it," said Ms. Catharine
Wren, adjutant of the American Legion
Post #224 in Cherry Lake. Wren has
been involved with the American Le-
gion for 17 years.
"Almost any American Legion Post
will do this for you," said Ms. Wren. In-
dividuals or businesses are invited to
have their old, faded or tattered U.S.


flags retired in this dignified tribute.
Flag Day commemorates the 1777
adoption of the flag of the United States
by the Second Continental Congress.
"Old Glory," the U.S. flag's famous nick-
name from the 1820s, deserves a proper
disposal when its days of flying high
are over.
U.S. flags that are unserviceable
may be dropped off after 4 p.m. each day
until Flag Day on June 14. The Ameri-
can Legion Post #224 is located at 4383
NE Cherry Lake Circle.
For further information on the
Flag Retirement Ceremony, call 973-
4295. Pickup may be requested if neces-
sary.

"When one door closes another
door opens; but woe often look so long
and so regretfully upon the closed door
that woe do not see the ones which open
for us" -Alexander Graham Bell.
June is "Rebuild Your Life Month"
and this is the time to start a new
chapter in life. June is the time to let
the things of the past six months go
and move towards the future. June is
also the six-month marker of New
Years, which means that most people
have failed their resolutions and are
ready to try again.
Take this chance to start again
and set new goals. Often New Year's
resolutions are extreme and are start-
ed immediately. This is not the way to
set a goal, however. The best plan is to
start slowly and gradually work your
way up.
If you want to lose weight then
start slowly. Begin by drinking more
water and fewer sodas. Then begin a
work out routine; maybe walking or
riding your bicycle first, and gradually
moving up to serious work out tech-
niques. Another good but small step to
lose weight is to eat the foods you
want, but smaller portions. Instead of
four cookies only eat one, or only eat a
handful of potato chips instead of
twenty.
Perhaps something you would like
to change in your life is the amount of
stress you put on yourself. Begin re-
moving stress by writing a to-do list. A
list is a visual way to keep everything
in order and make sure that every-
thing gets done. Also saying "no" re-
moves stress. It is not required to
attend every party or BBQ that you are
invited to. Sometimes the best thing to
do is to say no and simply spend a re-
laxing night at home. Also plan less for
your days, leave some more space for
free time and family activities.
Another way to remove stress is to

11'e ir-e Her-e For- All YTour-

Sale s, Se rnc e, 11ar r-an ty
in d Pa rts Ne ed s.


clean the clutter out of your life.
"Spring Cleaning" can help not only
make your house and office look better
but also allow you to think clearer. It is
easier to focus your thoughts if you
are working in a clean environment,
which helps to remove some of the
stress from your life.
Or maybe your life has fallen vic-
tim to technology addiction. Facebook
or texting can control your life if giv-
en the opportunity. Sometimes the
best way to handle these addictions is
to remove them. Facebook should be a
way to communicate with long dis-
tance friends, as with texting, it
should not be a requirement in your
daily life.
Take the month of June and begin
your new routine, then come fall you
will be glad you did. Changing your
lifestyle and habits is a great way to
clear your mind and improve your
quality of life. This is not simply a
New Year's resolution; this is a chance
to change your life for the better.
Seize the opportunity to remove
yourself from what makes you com-

Festival goers streamed into the
58th Annual Florida Folk Festival in
White Springs for three packed days,
with 15 stages showcasing over 300
performers, along with a host of art-
work, crafts, storytelling, dance,
demonstrations, contests and glori-
ous food at the Stephen Foster Folk
Culture Center State Park.
The gates to the "Real Florida"
opened at 8 a.m. daily, and upon en-
tering, the Florida Park Service pro-
vided a 56-page guide to list the
massive schedule of events celebrat-
ing Florida's cultural heritage. The
Florida Folk Festival is the nation's
oldest state-operated event since 1953
and it is known as Florida's Best Cul-
tural Event.
Nashville recording artist Billy
Dean headlined the festival am-


phitheater on Friday evening, May 28,
and country crooner, Mel Tillis, a
member of the Country Hall of Fame,
brought his own style to Saturday
night's crowd on May 29, despite a
rain downpour just prior to the con-
cert.
Billy Dean called audience mem-
ber, Darryl Wise, to the stage Friday
night to show that musicians who
don't know each other are able to suc-
cessfully jam while "hanging on by
the seat of their pants," he said. Judg-
ing by the crowd's reaction, Dean was
right.
The steady beat of a Drum Circle
with over 17 drums began at 6 p.m.
May 29 at the Ann Thomas Memorial
River Gazebo. Colored lights of blue,
red, yellow and purple flashed amid
drummers and dancers under the
shelter on the banks of the Suwannee
River. Hikers and bikers passed by to


listen along the path near the River
Gazebo.
Meanwhile, another evening
crowd gathered May 29 at the Her-
itage and Dance Stage for the Contra
Dance Workshop with the Hot Pepper
Steppers. A nearby tree had fallen, so

Clay Sapp, 18, will
graduate from Madison
County High School this
year as salutatorian of his
class. He is the youngest
son of Gina and Ed Sapp
and has two brothers: Will
and Blake Sapp, and one
sister, Kimberly Sapp.
However, Clay is
reaching his knowledge to
further expanses than
Madison County High
School. This year, the
Florida FFA state offcers
will be welcoming Clay as
one of their newest mem-
bers. Clay Sapp has been
preparing his campaign
for several months; this is
an honor he always
dreamed of.
Clay has been raised
in the FFA organization.
His father, Ed Sapp, is the
advisor at Madison Coun-
ty High School and Cen-
tral School's FFA
Chapters. However, this
prestigious honor does


not come easily, even for
Clay. There are several
hours of preparation that
must be put in to ensure
that he is ready for voting
day
Clay has sent off let-
ters to FFA organiza-
tions throughout the
state. These letters are
sent to ask for their sup-
port of his campaign
during this year's state
convention.
The FFA convention
will be held June 14-18,
with the announcement
and installation on June
18. On June 16, Clay will
have to participate in a
question and answer ses-
sion. During this, he will
be asked several ques-
tions on the FFA organi-
zation and be required to
answer to the best of his
abilities.
Also, during conven-
tion, Clay will be required
to give a two-minute cam-
paign speech, and have a
booth set up as well.


Clay's booth will contain
his business cards and re-
sume; passersby will be
able to learn more about
Clay and his credentials
for becoming state presi-
dent.
Clay is guaranteed a
position as either presi-
dent or secretary, de-
pending on the outcome
of the race. The winner
of the race will be Flori-
da FFA State President;
the runner-up will be
State Secretary. Clay will
be the first ever Madison
resident to become an
FFA state officer.
Clay shared, "Being
state president has always
been a dream of mine. I
will be elated to have ac-
complished one of my
largest goals. This is such
a high honor. I want to
make sure that I will car-
ry out my duties with ex-
cellence and great care. I
want to lead this organi-
zation in the best way pos-
sible."

Another antioxidant is trigonelline. This is the
ingredient that gives coffee its strong odor and bit-
ter taste. This ingredient, however, has also
been found to have antibacterial quali-
ties, and may reduce and prevent cavi-
ties.
Caffeine is another ingredient in
coffee that many consumers thrive
off of. Caffeine is shown to stimulate
brain function as well as mental ca-
pacity. Many consumers report feel-
ing more awake and focused
throughout the day if they drink cof-
fee.
Other health benefits from coffee in-
clude: cutting the risk of liver cancer in half.
Coffee can also treat headaches, depression and
heartburn for some individuals.
Coffee can also reduce the chance of getting

I have this old partial which I have womn for years. It has
these wires which hold it in that look bad in my smile. Can
you make a partial without those ugly wires?

Answer. *
Boy, this is a Catch 22 for the dentist. A partial which
doesn't have any wires to keep it tight looks just fine right
until it falls down at the dinner party or even worse, at
church. So instead of a partial that slips down you have
this hardware across your tooth which shows up in the
smile. Which is worse? Do you have to choose between
the hardware or a loose partial?

I am happy to say that we have more options these
days. Em- e~rl; m!y first choice is the partial with the metal
clasps (don't get mad at me). It functions the best, but I
work hard to keep the wires toward the back of the mouth
where they do not show and make them hidden as much
as possible. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to
hide the clasps so we have to come up with plan B. For
many patients a better cosmetic alternative is a precision
partial. With precision partial there are not any clasps.
The clasps are built within the partial and specially made
crowns. The partial will snap into the crown so a clasp is
not needed. This runs up the cost compared to a standard
partial but it is an excellent cosmetic solution.

Another choice is VALPLAST partial. These are
acrylic partial which still rely on clasps to stay in tight.
The nice thing about VALPLAST is the clasps are made
from pink flexible plastic. So instead ofa metal wire clasp
there is a pink plastic clasps which wraps around the tooth
at the gumline. This is a great economical option for those
cosmetic cases.

Sales of bottled wa-
ter have increased by
the hundreds of thou-
sands in the past ten
years. While the main
claim of bottled water


is to be safer, the truth
may shock you. Bottled
water and tap water
are comparably the
same.
Bottled water com-
panies are actually not
required to test their


product quality as of-
ten as city water com-
panies. However,
bottled water can also
be simply "purified tap
water. This shows
that the two are hand
in hand.


Tap water has at-
tained a bad reputa-
tion in previous years
due to rumors of cont-
amination. While tap
water has been found
to contain high levels
of chlorine, this does


not make tap water
safer than bottled.
Both tap and bot-
tled water come with
their ups and downs.
Tap water is better for
the environment; plas-
tic bottles build up in


landfills and can also
hurt animals. But bot-
tled water is more con-
venient, portable, and
easily transported.
The truth is that
both products are mea-
surably the same.

A morning cup of coffee can do more
than simply wake you up. More than
146 billions cups of coffee are con-
sumed by the United States in one
year and over half of U.S. citi-
zens drink at least one cup every 1----
day.
The main ingredient in cof-
fee is, in most cases, coffee ..
beans. Coffee beans contain many
ingredients from caffeine to citric
acid; also there are several antioxi-
dants in these wildly popular beans.
These antioxidants are responsible for the
many health benefits of coffee.
One of the types of antioxidants in coffee are
quinines. These help your body respond to insulin.
This is one of the reasons that scientists believe
that drinking several cups of coffee can help dia-
betics.


Herbal Supplements:
MGTUBIOus Medications
Or Ridiculous Remedies?


By Kristin Finney
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The use of plants
and herbs for medicinal
purposes is an idea that
dates back to the begin-
ning of time. These prac-
tices are based on the
actions of animals when
they are sick or during
certain times of life.
Animals are drawn
to certain plants when
they are ill, often the
more bitter plant mthah

avoid. Also mother birds
will often build their
nests from plants that
contain antimicrobial
agents; this is done to
protect their babies.
However, when test-
ed on humans, do these
herbs have the same
healing qualities? Stud-
ies will often find that
answer is no. While most
pharmaceuticals are
based on old herbal
remedies, their ingredi-
ents are often notably
different.
The best thing about
herbal supplements is
that they are vastly less
expensive than normal
medications. However, it
is important to only use
herbs that have been
tested and proven affec-
tive. The best rule of
thumb is to study the
products that you wish
to use, not simply walk-
ing into an herb shop
and asking the person
behind the counter what
you need.
Some products to
avoid include: ginger,
garlic and ginkgo biloba.
Garlic has often
been claimed to prevent
cancer, diabetes, obesity
and cardiovascular dis-
ease. No study has ever
proven these claims cor-
rect, but studies have
proven these claims to
be false.
Ginseng has often
professed to cure cancer;
however, this has never
been proven and long-
term effects of ginseng
have remained unclear.
Ginkgo biloba has
also been claimed to
treat Alzheimer's dis-
ease, depression and
also to avoid memory
loss.
However, studies
have proven that there is
little or no effect on
Alzheimer's by this
drug, though it has


shown minor alleviation
of depression in the el-
derly.
There are also sever-
al other herbal supple-
ments that have false
claims and could actual-
ly make the consumer
sicker than before.
All in all, it is best to
be well educated on any
and all medications. De-
termining whether one
needs herbal supple-

m diatin isit uc1 dh
test. Asking a doctor or
healthcare professional
can help with this
choice. Also, research-
ing on the Internet can
help inform an individ-
ual of the pros and cons
of these drugs.

Taking a cruise on your bike helps more than
just your thighs. While it is true that bicycle rides
are great for helping with your physical health it is
also healthy in other ways as well.
Cycling is a great way to strengthen your body it
helps you gain strength in your heart as well as legs.
It also increases your endurance therefore making
you have more strength for longer periods of time.
Riding your bicycle also burns calories and is a fun
and easy way to lose weight.
But taking a bicycle jaunt down the road also is
good for your outlook on life. Cycling relieves stress
in a healthy and fun way. It also increases your en-
ergy levels and helps you to become more relaxed.
This activity also helps you sleep better during
the night. It is proven that those who work out dur-
ing the day are often able to fall asleep faster and
stay asleep longer during the night. Getting more
sleep at night is beneficial in other ways to your
health as well.
Riding your bicycle is also good for the environ-
ment. Riding a bike to the grocery store instead of
taking a car cuts down on carbon emissions as well
as air pollution. It also allows you to appreciate the
environment more. By seeing how beautiful the
world can be when it is clean will encourage you to
help keep the planet clean.
Riding a bike also can save time, money and is
more convenient. Driving a car costs money; gaso-
line, oil changes and new tires. The costs never
cease to add up for automobiles. However a bicycle
has a small first time fee and does not use gasoline.
Also, if you ride a bicycle you are almost always
guaranteed front row parking to anywhere. That
means no more time wasted searching for a parking
spot and walking from the back of the parking lot on

t to a piano
Charles (Harmony, June
Alma Twig-

the albums
poignant look at the Ray
wn, a piano
Charles the public never
he was vis-
saw. The never-before-
told stories that Ray
I I Charles Robinson, Jr.

IR E shares about his father
IRE~are heartfelt and offer a
new understanding of
one of the world's most
~Ew AND beloved, fascinating and
~hard working entertain-


habit--at age six Ray Jr.
found his father bleeding
after severing an artery
and ligament in his
wrist; and the strength
he saw in his father dur-
ing rehab without the aid
of any drugs.
Ray Charles as a per-
former and perfectionist:
What it was like to watch
his father produce the
music, work with the oth-
er band members and fi-
nally go on tour with his
father as his personal
valet and the intimate de-
tails of the musical leg-
end's preparations to go
on stage.
How the loss of his
brother as a child, and fa-
ther and mother as a
teenager likely affected
Ray Charles' ability to be
a father himself.
Insight into the ge-
nius how his powers of
concentration and spe-
cial orientation were so
great that when in famil-
iar surroundings many
people couldn't believe
he was really blind.
Ray Jr.'s own painful
battles with drug abuse
and recovery.
The other siblings:
After hearing about his
father's affairs for years,
Ray Jr. finally meets his
many half-siblings for
the first time as an adult.
How Ray Jr. and his
family heard about the
death of his father and
how the family was ulti-
mately treated during
this painful period of
grief.
The music of Ray
Charles, with hit songs
such as Georgia on My
Mmdt, What o gaand I
have inspired listeners
for decades now we fi-
nally have an inside ac-
count of his personal life
and insight into his moti-
vations and musical ge-
nius, from his first born
son who loved him. But
YOU DON"T KNOW ME
is not just for music fans,
it's a heart warming and
candid story that has at
it's heart the power and
strength of family, most
of all it illuminates the
powerful bond that exists
between fathers and
sons.

In YOU DON'T
KNOW ME, Ray Charles
Robinson, Jr. offers a
rich and loving look at
the life of the man who
was a musical pioneer
and who Rolling Stone
ranked 10 on their list of
"The 100 Greatest Artists
of All Time." He is can-
did throughout, speaking
openly about his father's
affairs and his father's
addiction to heroin. Ray
also writes honestly
about the painful facts of
his own addiction and
how he fell victim to the
same temptations that
plagued his father.
But there's so much
more-readers and fans
will experience many
loving and intimate de-
tails about the family and
their liteh how RaysfeHl in
Della because he heard
her singing gospel on the
radio; that Ray Sr. loved
chess had a knack for
putting together elec-
tronics and Christmas
toys (yes, even as a blind
man); and how he some-
times rode his Vespa and
was calm and analytical
when disciplining his
three unruly boys. Best
of all, he reveals what it
was like to grow up in a
house often graced with
a never ending proces-
sion of legendary musi-
cians and singers. "I
knew my father wasn't
like other fathers,"
writes Ray. "Even though
I was too young to under-
stand the significance of
it all in my life, I was tru-
ly enriched by the experi-
ence I had and by the
presence of such great-
ness..."
As Ray recounts life
with his father, the amaz-
ing Strength and charac-
ter of his mother shines
through. Della B. Robin-
son, Ray's wife for 25
years, has never spoken
to the press or shared
any of their life together
until now. In the process
of writing the book, Ray
also spent time with Ray
Sr.'s close friend and per-
sonal valet Herbert
Miller, who also has ney-
er before shared any of
his experiences on the
road with one of the
greatest musicians of all
time. The book also in-
cludes:
Details of the
courtship of Della and
Ray Charles and the ear-
ly years together before
Ray Charles was a
celebrity, and ultimately
how Della handled all the
affairs, including a never
before told scene when
one of the mistresses
knocked on her door.
The toll of his fa-
ther's 20-year heroin
