Traffic concerns
around Cherry Lake Cir-
cle were discussed at the
Madison County Com.
mission meeting on
Wednesday, May 5.
"We set up a traffic
count there," Red Hen-
derson, Public Works Di-
rector told the board. "It
was set up on a weekday
when school was still in.
The highest speed we
recorded was 34 miles
per hour."
Henderson said that
the traffic count had
been recorded in a 23-
hour period at a total
cost of $287.64. .
There was some dis-
cussion amongst the
board of concerns about
people speeding around
the lake.
"After school is out
for the year," Henderson
asked the commission-
ers, "let us go back and
do a traffic count on the
weekend."
Co mmis sio ner
Wayne Vickers made a
motion to go ahead and
set the speed limit at 35
miles per hour. His mo-
tion died for lack of a
second.
Henderson informed

compiled by Sheriff Ben
Stewart.
As your Sheriff, I
wanted to take an oppor-
tunity to report on our
first year and to set a
precedent of giving an
annual report for the
Madison County Sher-
iff's Office. This first re-
port is for calendar year
2009 and is being pre-
sented in conjunction
with the release of the
State of Florida Uni-


form Crime Report for
2009. The highlight of

"Mladison
County Sheriff's
Deputies made
449 arrests
during 2009. "
- Sheriff Ben Stewart
the Uniform Crime Re-
port for Madison County
is an overall decrease in
crime of 9.5% during


2009. This is the largest
decrease in five years
and is 3% better than the
state level.
The first order of
business for the Sher-
iff's Office in 2009 was
the establishment of a
Drug Task Force. Dur-
ing 2009 Drug Task
Force Deputies and Uni-
form Patrol Deputies
were responsible for 68
drug related arrests.
These arrests accounted


for more than 1.5 million
dollars worth of drugs
being taken off the
streets of Mladison
~3j County. These arrests
also accounted for more
7. than $250,000.00 in
seized drug money and
assets. Because the
Sheriff's Office is oper-
ating under a budget cut
of $500,000.00 since the
last administration,

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ~


My loyal readers
know that I've been
writing this column for
nearly eight years. My
750-word pieces in
Wednesday's Madison
County Carrier cover a
variety of topics. There
is an emphasis on histo-
ry and civics. These are
topics that are impor-
tant to me and I believe
are largely ignored in
education today. Hope-
fully by writing about
these subjects, I'm help-
ing to raise the educa-
tion level.
My undergraduate
degree is in economics,
so I try to put that to use
by explaining complex
topics in an understand-
able manner. With our
economic problems of
today, there is plenty to
talk about.
Every now and then,
a reader will call me
about a local veteran
who might have an in-
teresting story to tell.
These stories take a lit-
tle more time to develop,
but they are among the
most enjoyable to my
readers, at least in terms
of the feedback I receive.
As I look back over the
last six years (my cur-
rent computer storage
files), it would appear
that I've had the oppor-
tunity to tell the story of
nmne World War II veter-
ans.
Three of the veter-
ans I wrote about -
Ernest Page, Bernard
Wilson and Jules Bacot -
were personal friends. I
knew Jules through my
church and Ernest and
Bernard through the Ro-
tary Club; in fact, it was
Bernard who suggested
I succeed him in writing
this column in late 2002.
The columns were per-
sonal obituaries after
each had died.
I never had an op-
portunity to meet Dale
Leslie, who passed away
shortly after I arrived in
Madison, but Joe Aker-
man had a story that
Dale had written about
his experience on
Guadalcanal in late 1942.


That was the basis of
my article and was a re-
markable tale. Dale was
a popular local fellow
but beyond Madison, he
is a true Marine Corps
legend.
One of my best
sources for veteran sto-
ries is Joe Akerman who
is a professional histori-
an of long standing. Joe
told me about Earl Den-
nis. Getting to meet and
interview Earl was a
great treat. As a fellow
aviator, I could relate to
Earl's experience flying
31 combat missions in
the B-17 Flying Fortress
over Nazi-held Europe
in 1944.
Joe also suggested
that I tell Lee Cason's
story. Lee's memory was
gone by that time but he
had written a diary of
his World War II experi-
ence as a B-24 bom-
bardier. Lee's diary,
which his wife Charlotte
allowed me to read, was
simply remarkable. The
level of detail and tech-
nical information was
unlike anything I've
ever encountered.
My friend Bert Wal-
drep suggested the inter-
views with his "Uncle
Buck" Agner and Pete
Studstill. Both men had
taken part in epic battles
- Carroll in the Battle
of the Bulge and Pete at
Iwo Jima. The story I
wrote about Carroll Ag-
ner was probably the
most complete of any I
have tackled. Two
things set this story
apart: Carroll had spent
nearly all of his World
War II experience in
one outfit, the 2nd In-
fantry "Indianhead" Di-
vision and when he
went overseas, he took a
good camera with him.
Between Carroll's histo-


ry books and his photo
album, I had a wealth of
information with which
to work. That story,
published three years
ago this March, re-
mains my favorite.
Greene Publishing did a
wonderful job with the
layout.
We lost Pete
Studstill not long agO,
but not before I had an
opportunity to talk with
him about the Battle for
Iwo Jima in early 1945.
These two battles, Iwo
Jima and the Bulge,
were two of the greatest
chapters in our nation's
military heritage. To
have had the opportuni-
ty to sit down and talk
with two local fellows
who were there and
could describe their ex-
perience was a great
treat.
A few weeks ago, I
wrote about the experi-
ence of Pinetta's Homer
Wallace, whose 42nd
"Rainbow" Division lib-
erated the infamous
Nazi Concentration
camp at Dachau. The
article wasn't about
Homer but rather, the
significance of the
event he participated in
of helping to end the
Holocaust.
I was fortunate to
have the opportunity to
get to know these men,
however briefly, and
help tell their story.
Only two of them re-
main with us today.
The veterans I have
interviewed universally
downplay their person-
al role in these momen-
tous events. To them,
the real heroes are the
young men who didn't
return to enjoy the
peace and prosperity
their sacrifice earned. I
understand.

Annual Report

cont from Page 1A
these seized assets have been our main source of capital outlay for
vehicles and equipment. During 2009 the Sheriff's Office pur-
chased seven vehicles, two narcotics dogs, software, investigative
equipment, and supplemented a boat purchase with these seized
drug assets. The significance of these seizures has been translated
into a zero capital outlay budget for the Sheriff's Office for the cur-
rent 2009-2010 budget year.
Madison County Sheriff's Deputies made 449 arrests during
2009. They also completed over 6,000 case reports and investiga-
tions. These cases resulted in a clearance rate of 34.4 %, which was
improved by 7.2% over 2008. Sheriff 's Deputies wrote 1088 traffic
citations which included 11 DUI arrests and 91 seat belt violations,
There were 975 written warnings issued which included 688 for
speeding. There were 11,556 building checks and 25,766 document-
ed contacts with the public. Deputies served over 2500 civil papers
which include domestic violence injunctions, subpoenas, sum-
mons, replevins, and evictions. Deputies also investigated and con-
ducted 190 Baker Acts and 18 juvenile detentions all of which
require transporting to Tallahassee.
During 2009, the Madison County Sheriff's Office Corrections
Division maintained, supervised, transported, fed and cared for a
daily average of 70 inmates. This includes the booking into our jail
of a total of 2078 inmates for 2009. Corrections personnel fed over
71,000 meals to these inmates at a cost of 1.40 per meal for a total of
$100,000.00. There were also 110 sexual offender registrations com-
pleted by our corrections personnel. These registrations are re-
quired for all sexual offenders moving into or residing in Madison
County. Each offender then has to register again each three to six
months and be monitored by deputies at their places of residence.
The Madison County Sheriff's Offce 911 Communications
Center received 16,806 calls through the 911 emergency lines for
2009. The 911 center also fielded over 50,000 administrative calls for
the same period. The 911 center is then tasked with dispatching
these calls to all of the law enforcement agencies, fire departments,
and emergency medical services in Madison County "Crime Stop-
pers of Madison County" was also initiated during 2009 and result-
ed in over ten arrests from tips received in Madison County
During 2009, the Madison County Sheriff's Office actively pur-
sued federal grants to enhance the law enforcement and public
safety of Madison County. Out of seven grant applications we re.
ceived four grants which totaled over $350,000 awarded to the Sher-
iff 's Offce. These grants funded a part time deputy position for
Greenville, provided two patrol cars, and helped fund the Sheriff's
Offce boat. However, the majority of the grant awards had to be
designated for an upgrade to our radio communications equip-
ment. We have been under a federal mandate since 2002 to "Narrow
Band" our law enforcement and fire radio frequencies. This man-
date is required before 2013 and had not been addressed. This grant
along with funds from traffic citations will now allow us to accom-
plish this mandate as well as upgrade antiquated radio equipment.
During 2009 the Madison County Sheriff's Office participated
in several community projects. Some of these include the organi-
zation and presentation of an agriculture informational meeting
held in conjunction with the Department of Transportation and
the Florida Farm Bureau. Hosting and organizing the 4th Annual
Boys Ranch Golf Tournament which raised over $5,000.00 for the
Florida Sheriff's Boy's Ranch. Partnering with the Madison Coun-
ty Alcohol and Other Drug Coalition. Participation in community
events such as Martin Luther King Jr. Day, "Lee Day," "Four Free-
dom's Day," May the 20th Celebration, Opening Day for Madison
and Greenville little league, community forums, as well as many
others'
The Madison County Sheriff 's Office has been proactive
against crime during 2009. The results can be seen in the data
collected as well as the encouragement we have received from
our community. However, I feel that the most successful part of
the Sheriff's Office is the dedicated and trained personnel who
continue to give beyond what is asked of them. This dedication
was exemplified during the flood of 2009. Deputies from the
Madison County Sheriff 's Off ice worked tirelessly during this
time as well as putting themselves in harms way many times to
effect rescues, patrol and monitor flooded homes, and to conduct
a body recovery which took nine days. Our Deputies and Reserve
Deputies along with the Volunteer Fire Departments, FWC, FHP,
Emergency Management, Red Cross, Churches, and many others
in this community worked together to make a bad situation a lot
better,
Finally, want to thank the people of Madison County for their
support of the Madison County Sheriff 's Office in 2009. We are
working hard to continue to earn your support as we go through
2010.

the driver's door window. Two people
were detained and taken to the County Jail.
One additional subject is being sought.
Shortly after that incident, the Fred's

front door broken out and a subject was seen
running across the parking lot by a witness.
Again, county and city units worked together
to secure the scene and clear the building.

Hog Problem
cont from Page 1A
a problem before, there is one now," Willoughby
told the board.
Willoughby said that research that he had
done revealed that feral hogs can have up to
three litters a year, with as many as 20 in a litter.
He noted that the problem could get even bigger
because of this.
"I've called the Fish and Wildlife Commis-
sion," he said. "They gave me a phone number,
which can be called for a wildlife trapper."
Willoughby said, "There should be no relo-
cation of the hogs. It's illegal to trap them and
put them in another area."
Wiloughby asked if he could put out feelers
for anyone who could legally trap and dispose of
the hogs. Willoughby would compile local phone
numbers and put them on list for anyone who
may have a problem with feral hogs in their
area.
County Attorney Tom Reeves said that
there would probably be a way to legally do that.
By consensus, the board allowed Wilough-
by to move ahead to search out local trappers.
"The ideal thing would be to kill them and
eat them, but that would be a lot of bacon out
there," he joked.

Gulf Coast


with his wife, Anna, said that the couple stumbled
on Matter of Trust when they were wondering
what they could do to help with the cleanup.
"We will have a drop-off box at Daylight Salon
and Spa that people and stylists can put the hair
they have cut," he said. "We wil ship the donated
hair clippings for the Madison area to them when
the box gets filled."
There are some requirements for the hair,
however.
"Please put hair clippings in a plastic bag,"
Jamie said. "Ideally donate shampooed hair, but
certainly don't include filthy hair or flr. "
He pointed out that any type of hair could be
donated, whether itis straight, curly dyed, permed
or straightened but it must be only head hair:
Any type of fur or waste wool is accepted.
Please put only hair clippings in the plastic
bag.
"Please, no other garbage," Jamie advised,
pointing out that garbage included gum, metal
clips, paper cups and wrappers."
He continued: "Remember volunteers, some-
times young students, have to stuff this hair into
booms and don't want to feel garbage or anything
sharp."
He advised to tie the top of the bag.
"We also accept washed, used (even with
runs) nylon stocking donations in a separate bag,"
Jamie said.
Other natural fibers, such as horsehair and
feathers are also accepted. Once again, make sure
they there is no other garbage in with the fibers,
which must be packed in different plastic bags.
Jamie urges other barbershop and beauty
shops to participate in this effort.
"When we get the box full, Daylight Salon and
Spa will handle all the shipping and handling to
the donation centers," he said. "The box will be la-
beled as 'Donations from Caring Individuals of
Madison County Florida.' We are excited about
this because the oil spmllwill affect all of ushere in
Florida."
Jamie looks to the project with optimism and
hope.
"I envision us coming together as a commu-
nity profession and as people of the state to help
with this disaster," he said.
Daylight Salon and Spa is located at 178 SW
Range Avenue in Madison. Their phone number is
(850) 973-8998.

was placed in the Garden Center in January to
protect plants from the weather.
"They're healthy-looking plants, healthier
than what I've seen in other places," said
Mitchell. "If you're going to spend your money on
plants," she continued, "you want them to live."
Customer Shirley Joseph talked on her cell
phone while admiring gorgeous red blooms in the
Garden Center, and Midge Mercer of Lee found a
wooden v-shaped trellis and several plants she
liked, while Eddie Taylor of Madison was shop-
ping for caladiums.
So how's business at the Studstill Garden
Center?
"Madison has been so great to us," said

This Go Green flower arrangement received the highest auction bid of $65 at
Madison Tablescapes.


By M.K Graves
Greene Publishing Inc.
"In Spanish, you are
bonita," exclaimed Dolly
Ballard, president of the
Madison Garden Club, at
the Madison Ta-
blescapes event May 6 at
the Woman's Club build-
ing. The word bonita
means beautiful.
Over 60 Garden Club
members competed on
eight committees to cre-
ate Tablescapes. Their
challenge was to pro-
duce spectacular table
settings using color, de-
sign and fabulous flower
arrangements.
"These women love
beauty and they are
ready to create," said
Marianne Green, who
was installed as the
Madison Garden Club's
new vice president dur-
ing the meeting.
A gracious opening
prayer was given by Inda
Tinney. Catherine Cas-
sidy, chairperson of
Madison Tablescapes an-
nounced the awards,
which included eight
categories with five hon-
orable mentions, first,
second and Best of
Show.
The Tablescapes
judges were Catherine


Cassidy, Dianne Sullivan
and Cindy Poire.
Best of Show went
to May Flowers at the
Beach, a classy aqua
table setting featuring
larkspur and miscella-
neous spring flowers.
Chair sashes were cre-
atively hung with fish
netting. Committee
members included Car-
olyn Edwards, Dorothy
Peacock, Inda Tinney,
Sybil Powell, Sandra
Wilson, Pearl Raines and
Jan Ledsome.
It may have been the
Garden Club's last meet-
ing until September, but
the excitement of Madi-
son Tablescapes made a
big impact on the partic-
ipants.
Most Original was
presented to the Eclectic
Blue Tablescape: "Our
table is special because
we used every color
blend of blue from paper
to plastic to china. We
call it eclectic because
we could use anything,"
said Ann Smith, com-
mittee chairperson,
Using Monet-in-
spired color, the Go
Green committee won
Best Design and second
place with its striking
centerpiece using white


Asiatic lillies, green Fuji
mums, Kermit chrysan-
themums, palm and au-
cuba, accented by green
glassware and an eye-
catching design.
Honorable mentions
included Tablescapes en-
titled Lemon Drops, The
Orange, Love is Giving,
Shades of Purple and
Such a Peach. They used
centerpiece flowers
ranging from geraniums
to roses.
The Tablescapes
event was also the Madi-
son Garden Club's Mem-
bership Day for
2010-2011. Anyone inter-
ested in joining for fall
may still call 973-2506 or
973-6697.

ognized for their efforts
to find the best land-

The new Garden Center at Studstill Lumber
of Madison is a lush world of hanging baskets,
bedding plants, perennials, hibiscus, and shrub-
bery. The colorful aisles are dotted with citrus,
fruit and shade trees facing Highway 53. "Hang-
ing baskets, that's probably one of our main
items," said Ansley Paulk, who works in the Gar-
den Center and is known for her magic touch
with plants.
Owners Revonda and Glen Frith are already
planning for additional changes in the Studstill
Garden Center, and they are taking requests from
customers daily.
"Ansley Paulk makes this thing happen," said
Ravonda Frith. "I buy the plants and I look for
unique things," she said. "Seriously, I couldn't do
this without her great customer service and vast
knowledge."
A new part-time employee, Maria Gonzalez,
completes the staff working in the Studstill Gar-
den Center, which is open Monday through Fri-
day 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4

Deloris Jones paid tribute to How-
ell Waring at the May 5 Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners meeting.
"On May 20 at 5:30 p.m., we will11ay
a wreath at the monument of the un-
sung heroes," Jones said. "Mr. Howell
Waring got the ball rolling and was re-
sponsible for it being placed in the
park."
The monument that Jones men-
tioned is in the Four Freedoms Park
and pays tribute to the slaves in Madi-
son County. Waring, who was the pres-
ident of the Chamber of Commerce,
initiated the idea, which he did not live
to see completed. He died of a heart at-
tack before the monument was erected.
"Before he died, he asked for for-
giveness for his people having slavery,"
Jones said.
May 20 is celebrated each year in
the black community. It recognizes the

The game has been around for a
while and it's been played in Madison
County for at least five years, accord-
ing to the game's official web site.
Maybe the readers have not heard
of it. This writer only recently discov-
ered it when a fellow employee told
him about it. The game is called geo-
caching.
How is geocaching played?
Simply put, it is a game of hide
and seek, but one person will not be
hunting another person. Instead, they
will be hunting hidden treasure.
Unlike Cap'n Jack Sparrow from
Pirates of the Caribbean, players will
not be setting sail on the Black Pearl,
guided by the sun and the stars. In-
stead, they will be guided by a Global


Positioning System (GPS) or by a GPS-
enabled cell phone.
To find what treasure they are
seeking, players must log onto
wwwo~.geocaching.conz and enter the
area they wish to hunt. They can enter
GPS coordinates, states, countries, ad-
dresses or zip codes. For example, en-
ter 32341 and the results will show on
the screen.
If a player decides he or she wants
to hide a cache, they can go to
wwwo~.geocaching.conz for detailed in-
formation on how to hide a treasure.
Unlike a pirate or treasure seeker
of old, those who find the treasured
caches must leave them where they
are or if they take something out, they
must replaced it with something of
like value.
Happy treasure hunting, mateys.

LIF ESTY LE


Keep Your Daily

Routine From


O frhIYLe ming YO Lfe CVW U


u TiDS To Balance


WIork Ami Family
(StatePoint) The world keeps changing, bringing more distrac-
. tions into our daily routines. With everything going on between
work and home, true balance can be elusive.
"There are many ways to integrate work and home life, instead
of constantly playing one off the other," says Veronica Canning,
Businesswoman, motivational speaker, and the author of the new
book "Shoeisms: Working Woman's Guide to Take Control and Be
the Sassy, Successful Woman You Know You Can Be."
.Here are a few hints from Canning to make your daily duties
easier to manage.
End each week by making your own plan for the following
week. Proper planning is key in attaining professional and person-
al balance. By planning for the coming weeks, or even year, you can
reduce clutter and focus only on what's most important. "Operate on
'1the belief that if you don't get on top of your garden, it will get on
top of you," she says. "Get out ahead of the weeds. For example, each
spring, I have an urge to clear out all the accumulations of winter
.and start fresh."
Give yourself permission to take time off. Alone. Until scien-
tists unveil a time machine, there will only be so many hours in the
day Meanwhile, your best bet is to get a head start on the rest of the
Family by getting to bed early and starting your day before everyone
else is up. With an hour or two to yourself, you'll have opportunities
-to focus on your own needs while getting prepped for those of your
family.
With self belief, you can do anything. Many adults who find
Professional success follow a set of guiding principles that lead
Them. By passing these rules down to the family, you can enjoy qual-
;fity time with your children while equipping them for the real world.
"Self belief is at the base of your whole life and we have a responsi-
,,bility to build this self belief in our children," says Canning.
Don't be merely successful, be significant. It's not all about
r money and fame; truly successful people are the ones who give back
to society. Everyone has the chance to leave a legacy before they die.
. It will be what people remember you for long after you are dead.
".Rarely do people rate money or a workaholic who never saw their
family as a good legacy So decide on your legacy Make a huge dif-
ference to this world.
Be realistic with yourself. Attaining work-life balance is about
having realistic aspirations. "Set yourself up for success by making
realistic goals," she says. "Take into account the amount of time, en-
ergy and finances you have when setting the goals."
IL By following a few simple rules, you can get closer to finding
perfect balance...or at least some sanity.

g~~~r~r c -


(StatePoint) From
the moment you wake in
the morning to the sec-
ond your head hits the pil-
low at night, there are
many responsibilities re-
quiring your attention.
Without being careful,
people easily can fall prey
to the stress of that rou-
tine.
Luckily, it's not too
late for most of us to over-
come the rigors of the
daily grind, say experts.
"Stress is in every-
one's life, but there are
many ways to deal with it
throughout each day,"
says Paul Huljich, writer
and founder of the
MWellA Foundation
(Mind Wellness Aware-
ness Foundation).
Formerly an organic
food pioneer once worth
tens of millions of dol-
lars, Huljich suffered a
debilitating breakdown
in 1998 leading to a stay in
a mental institution and a
bipolar disorder diagno-
sis. As a result, he lost
much of what he loved --
his business, his family,
his dignity. Now symp-
tom-free, Huljich has
written a novel based on
his experience, entitled
"Betrayal of Love and
Freedom."

"Id euaded to eapcela

sures of daily life, be-
cause my health
condition resulted from
stress," he says. "One in
four Americans suffers
from a mind condition. I
felt that writing this book


would not only help in-
still awareness on the
dangers of stress but help
people understand that
prevention is the key
Come Back to Earth
Our jobs and daily
routines are important,
but they don't need to de-
fine us. Time alone or
with family can remind
us of that. Some try to
find that escape in mater-
ial things, but this some-
times can mask
depression. "Material
things don't matter," re-
members Huljich, who
once lived in a 30,000
square-foot home with an
indoor pool, squash
court, 18 bathrooms and
helipad. "If you're not re-
ally happy, what's the
point of a bigger home?"
Vacation and Sleep
Vacations are a great
way to escape pressures
of your daily routine, es-
pecially if they're not
brimming with activities.
A beach getaway or a re-
laxing trip to the country
can provide a relaxing,
low-maintenance vaca-
tion.
And while vacations
can be beneficial, getting
regular sleep can be just
as important. Research
has found sleep to be a
healty dg-fre dwa t


Drop Bad Habits
Bad habits don't only
include drinking and
smoking. Working too
much or running yourself
ragged with chores also
can be health hazards.


Try to find better balance
to establish a healthy
foundation on which to
build a well-rounded life.
One bad habit often
overlooked is disorgani-
zation. That inability to
manage daily tasks can
be both the cause and ef-
fect of stress and anxiety
Keeping a proper calen-
dar and managing time ef-
ficiently can prove
invaluable and relaxing.
It's not just the big
problems that can over-
whelm us, say mental
health experts. Little
things can build up, leav-
ing us overwhelmed and
debilitated. It's important
to take good care of your-
self daily
"People need to pause
and reflect on where they
are in their lives," says
Huljich. "The most impor-
tant ingredient is the spir-
it, that flame of energy
You can see people's pain
in their eyes if the lights
have gone out. I've been
there. You want to fight
that, because you're
worth it."

Huljich, visit www.paulh-
uljich.com or read his

(StatePoint) The
world is full of ethical
dilemmas: moments
when people have the op-
portunity to make split-
second decisions to do
the right thing. But if re-
cent news is any indica-
tor, many make the
wrong choices.
Hardly a month goes
by without another story
about an executive,
sports figure or ordinary
mom or dad behaving
unethically and even
criminally.
But how tough is it
to become prouder of
the person in the mir-
ror? Knowing the basic
difference between right
and wrong isn't enough.
"All too often, there
are factors that distort
our perception of right
and wrong, so we actual-
ly believe unethical be-
havior is normal and
appropriate," says clini-
cal psychologist Robert
Hoyk, the author of the
new book, "The Ethical


Executive," which exam-
ines the causes of uneth-
ical behavior and the
psychological traps we
need to avoid.
"One look at the Wall
Street crisis and the
scandalous behavior of
leading politicians
leaves little doubt we
need more responsible
behavior from our lead-
ers," he adds.
Recognize the Traps
In our everyday
lives, especially at work,
there are many psycho-
logical traps into which
we risk falling. We are
susceptible to them due
to such psychological is-
sues as low self-esteem,
guilt and competition.
By identifying many
of these traps before-
hand, maintaining ethi-
cal behavior gets easier.
For example, just be-
cause your boss or an au-
thority figure orders you
to do something, doesn't
make it right. Blind obe-
dience to authority can
lead you down unethical
paths, say experts. And
just because those
arOund you do some-
thing, doesn't mean you
Should.
"The vast majority
Of poO le care about
ethics, but are vulnera-
ble to traps. Good inten-
tions aren't enough tO
avoid these pitfalls. You
need to be aware of
things that distort our
perception of right and
wrong," says Hoyk,
whose new book out-
lines 45 traps that await
us daily. For more infor-
mation, visit wwwo~.theet-
hicalexecutive.com.
And how we handle
situations at work dic-
tates our behavior at
home and vice versa.
Take the Time
Our work and home
lives are built on founda-
tions of human relation-
ships. Taking a moment
to offer an encouraging
word to a co-worker can
motivate and provide the
same positive energy as
telling family members
you love them.
Volunteer Your Time
Offer some of your
personal or business re-
sources for those less


fortunate. Aside from
helping others, volun-
teering time or money
provides opportunities
to integrate your family,
friends and co-workers
into activities that help
establish strong pat-
terns of ethical behav-
ior,
Becoming a better
person is about being
better aware of both
ethics and psychology --
those cues in our daily
lives and within our-


selves that drive our ac-
tions.
"Ethics need to be
integrated with psy-
chology," stresses
Hoyk, who is donating
15 percent of the pro-
ceeds of his book to
Health Span Interna-
tional Foundation.
"Ethics tells us what we
should be doing and
psychology can help us
stop immoral behavior
and motivate us to do
the right things."

QueStiOH:
My teeth were beautiful and straight when I was younger. Now
they are crowded and I don't understand why they aren't straight
anymore.
Answer:
Boy that is common for so many people. They feel like they
have an unattractive smile. They will avoid smiling or even cover
their mouth when they smile. They fear that they could never have
straight teeth and a nice smile. Or they fear if they did straighten
their teeth that it would not last for them.
My patient further expressed that I just don't understand why
my teeth are crowded. They should have stayed straight. They think
they got crowded because of (Fill in the blank).
I am going to let you in on the most important concept in
Orthodontics. It is called the neutral zone. For better or worse, teeth
line up in the neutral zone. There are opposing forces within the
mouth. The tongue pushing the teeth outward and the lips pushing
them inward. This makes the equivalent of a oral tug of war. Teeth
will hine up in a zone where the outward force and inward forces are
equal. Once you understand the opposing forces you will understand
thatt when theetangue oe powers the pertthere ol be e a 11
be crowding of teeth. All you have to do is look in the mirror and
you can tell which is happening in your mouth.
Braces are only part of the solution. Yes, braces will straighten
the crowded teeth or close gaps between teeth. This will all look
great right until the forces of the tongue start doing their magic on
the teeth when the braces come off. If the orthodontist was able to
align the teeth in the neutral zone where the forces are balanced the
teeth will stay nice and straight. This is the orthodontist perfect
world. Unfortunately it is not always possible to get teeth in the
neutral zone so there is the risk of relapse.
How do you avoid relapse? The answer to avoiding relapse is
retainers. Those things you wore on your teeth when the braces
came off. The things we lost in a napkin when we were eating at
Pizza hut as a teenager so now we have relapse. I have seen so many
relapse issues from failed or lost retainers. This is why I suggest
permanently bonded retainers. They bond behind the lower front
tee h, and have the beast chance of prese vig that dazzling smile for

braces in the past. Once they are straight you can use bonded
retainers to keep teeth straight for as long as you wear the retainer.

When Investing,
Learn Aspects of Risk

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones


In life, you can't avoid all risks and you shouldn't try,
because endeavors that carry risk also bring the prospect
of reward. And it's certainly the same in the investment
world. So instead of trying to invest risk-free, which is
impossible, learn to recognize the different types of
investment risk while becoming familiar with your own risk
tlrance..

To start with, let's quickly look at some of the most com-
mon forms of investment risk:

*Risk of losing principal This is the type of risk
most commonly associated with investing. You could lose
s -m e, or ev e. all, of v e.. .......-, v - e l ..ve t-
ment, such as a stock, whose value has dropped lower
than the purchase price.Y/ou can't eliminate the risk of los-
ing principal, but you may be able to reduce it by buying
quality stocks and holding them long enough to overcome
short-term market drops.

*Inflation risk With an investment that pays a fixed
rate of return, such as a certificate of deposit (CD), you
run the risk of not keeping up with inflation, which means
you could lose purchasing power over time.
Consequently, it's a good idea not to "overload" on these
types of investments.

*Interest-rate risk When you own a bond, your
investment is somewhat at the mercy of changing market
interest rates. For example, if you buy a bond that pays
four percent interest, and market rates rise so that newly
issued bonds pay five percent, the relative value of your
bond will go down; no one will pay you face value of your
bond when they can get new ones that pay higher rates.
Of course, if you hold your bonds until maturity, which is
often a good idea, you can avoid being victimized by inter-
est-rate risk.

*Concentration risk This type of risk occurs when
you have too much of your money concentrated in one
area, such as in a particular stock or in one industry. If a
downturn strikes that stock or industry, your portfolio
could take a big hit. To combat this type of risk, you need
to diversify your holdings among stocks, bonds, govern-
ment securities and other investments. While diversifica-
tion, by itself, cannot guarantee a profit or protect against
a loss, it can help reduce the effect of volatility.

In addition to understanding the above types of risk, you
also need to be familiar with your own risk tolerance and
how it affects your investment strategy. If you are con-
stantly worried about "the market," you've probably got too
many investments that are at risk of losing principal. At
the other end of the spectrum, if you're always concerned
that your portfolio won't grow enough to generate the
income you'll eventually need for retirement, you may be
investing too conservatively and, as a result, you're
inviting inflation risk.

Ultimately, you need to match your own risk tolerance with
a strategy that allows you to achieve your goals. This will
require self-awareness, patience, discipline and, at
times, a willingness to move outside your own "comfort
zone." By learning to balance and manage risk, you can
ultimately put yourself in a position to pursue your invest-
ment strategy.

It S


Spring is here, and
that means it's time to
spruce up your house,
get rid of clutter and get
things organized. But
this year, Madison-area
Edward Jones financial
advisors say local resi-
dents should go beyond
their home and yard
when they do their
spring cleaning, and
look for ways to rejuve-
nate their investment
portfolio.
Spring time is a
great time to take a
fresh look at your in-
vestment situation and
make a consistent effort
to make progress to-
ward your financial
goals, the financial advi-
sors say. Investors may
need to make adjust-
ments in response to


changes in the financial
markets, the economy
and their personal situ-
ation situations.
The Edward Jones
financial advisors ask
local residents to con-
sider the following sug-
gestions:
Dispose of things
that aren't working:
Whether it's a burnt-out
computer or a treadmill
that lost its grip back
when "the Web" was re-
served for spiders, we
all own things that are
no longer useful.
And the same may
be true of some of your
investments. If one has-
n't performed the way
you had hoped, and
you've given it adequate
time, you may be better
off by replacing it and


using the proceeds to
purchase another in-
vestment.
Get rid of dupli-
cates: If you went
through everything in
your house, you might
find several items that
do the same thing. Do
you really need two
toaster ovens? And how
many radios can you lis-
ten to at one time?
If you looked at
your investment portfo-
lio in this same way, you
might be surprised to
find some redundan-
cies. For example, do
you own several stocks
issued by similar com-
panies that make simi-
lar products? This
might not be a problem
when the stock market
is booming, but it could


be a definite concern if
a downturn affects the
industry to which these
companies belong. Al-
ways look for ways to di-
versify your holdings.
While diversifica-
tion, by itself, can't
guarantee profits or
protect against loss, it
can help you reduce the
effects of volatility.
Put things back in
order: Over time, the
spaces in your home can
get "out of balance."
Perhaps your flat-screen
television is crowding
out your family pictures
or your new desk takes
up too much space in
your home office. With
some rearranging, you
can usually get things
back in order.
And the same need
for rearrangement may
apply to your portfolio,
which might have be-
come unbalanced with
too much of one invest-
ment and too little of
another. This situation
could undermine your
financial strategy, espe-
cially if the imbalance
means you are taking on
too much risk or, con-
versely if your holding
have become too conser-
vative to provide the
growth you need. Look
for ways to restore your
portfolio to its proper
balance one that re-
flects your risk toler-
ance, time horizon and
long-term goals.

Over 40 girls competed for four days
to become a part of the Madison County
High School varsity and junior varsity
cheerleading squads.
The week of tryouts included vigor-
ous workouts, difficult routines, and sev-
eral lessons on cheer etiquette. From
pointing your toes, to yelling your loud-
est, the girls faced it all. Ruth Ann Lat-
ner, varsity sponsor, and Tammy Brown,
JV sponsor,1led tryouts. Several previous
varsity Cowboy cheerleaders also assist-
ed them.
On tryout day, each competitor was
required to do the following: a cheer,
chant, dance, stunt, cartwheel, split and
two jumps. Girls were split into several
smaller groups before performing for
the judges. The judges were cheerlead-
ers from Valdosta State University and
they judged the girls on voice strength,
spirit and understanding of the material


and also knowledge of proper cheer
technique.
Tryouts were held on April 22, 2010,
and the new squads were announced
that evening.
The newest members of the junior
varsity cheerleading squad are: Eryn Al-
derman, Bria Arnold, Tyneisha Arnold,
Carissa Blanton, Serena Broomfield,
Avience Burch, Kimberly Fields, Taylor
Huggins, Ashley Killingsworth, Quane-
sha Livingston, Marlena McCrae, Jakay-
