Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports
that on Thursday, May 14, at 12:15 a.m., investiga-

Task Force stopped a vehicle on Interstate 10 for a
traffic infraction, which resulted in the seizure of
$100,071.00. The money is now pending forfeiture
proceedings.
During the traffc stop, investigators detected
signs of possible criminal activity and requested
consent to search the vehicle. The driver and pas-

to search. The Task Force K9 investigator deployed
canine "Arko" to conduct a free air sniff of the ex-

A knock at the door could
mean funding for the City of
Madison for the next ten years.
That was the news that the Madi-
son City Commissioners heard at
their regular meeting May 11.
Martha Highnote brought the
board a report on U. S. Census Bu-
reau response so far. She told the
board that Madison County has
one of the lowest response rates
in the state. Still, she said that the
response to date is 53 percent in
2010, up from 43 percent in the
2000 count. "This will determine
funding for hospitals, streets, and


schools for ten years," she said. "I
am asking city leaders, the Police
Department, and others, to con-
tact people who have not respond-
ed. This will help your city."
Highnote handed out flyers in
English and in Spanish for city of-
ficials to pass out door-to-door, to
post on windows, and perhaps to
include with utility bills. She said
the local census has reached the
personal-visit stage. "Your off-
cial Census worker will have the
Census bag and will be wearing
the offcial Census badge. Be sure
to ID anyone who comes to your
door. Do not answer questions
about your finance situation or


your Social Security number.
Census workers do not ask those
questions," she explained.
Commissioner Jim Catron
asked, "So we are chopping off
our fingers if we do not respond?"
Highnote answered, "That
could be right. We have many peo-
ple very actively trying to contact
those who have not responded.
Call your worker if he leaves a
note on your door. We will contin-
ue in Madison through the end of
June. "

Lesllie



Right
Sometimes it pays to be in the
right place at the right time. This was
never more true for anyone than it
was for Leslie King. Twice.
Leslie was born in Omaha, Ne-
braska, in 1913, but he was raised in
Grand Rapids, Michigan. His parents
divorced when he was three, and his
mother remarried. Leslie's new step-
father adopted him and Leslie took his
last name.
Years later, Leslie was able to rise
to the top position in his profession
when his boss resigned. Being in the
right place at the right time made it
possible for him.
Leslie went on to play football at
the University of Michigan, where he
became an All-American. He was
named the team's MVP after his se-
nior year, but it wasn't as a football
player that he made his mark.
After college, he attended Yale law
school and then served in the Navy
during World War II. It wasn't as a war
hero that he made his mark, though.
The blond-haired, blue-eyed Leslie
also did some modeling, appearing on
the cover of Cosmopolitan in 1942. In
fact, it was while he was on a modeling
assignment that he met his future
wife, a young divorcee named Eliza-
beth Bloomer, who was also a model.
The two were married in 1948.
It wasn't as a model that Leslie
made his mark, though. Elizabeth,
meanwhile, would later become ad-
dicted to painkillers after she suffered
a pinched nerve in her neck, and this


King Was Always In The

Place At The Right Time
was followed by a drinking problem.
She would later help establish a reha-
bilitation center for other people with
substance abuse problems. In fact, she
became very familiar with the Betty
SFord clinic.
Leslie King entered politics in
1948, being elected as a Republican
representative. He served as a rep for
17 years before he became House Mi-
nority Leader in 1965.
one of his bosses during his ca-
reer was President Richard Nixon. In
fact, Leslie and his wife accompanied
President Nixon on a trip to China in
1972, and he was working for Nixon
when he resigned the presidency in
1974. Like I said earlier, sometimes it
pays to be in the right place at the
right time, because there's one thing
that l forgot to tell you.
When Leslie King took the name
of his new stepfather, he took both his
first and his last names. His stepfa-
ther's name was Gerald Ford, meaning
that Leslie King became known as
Gerald Ford, Jr. the same Gerald
Ford that would grow up to become the
38th president of the United States.
For our younger readers who
might not know, the surprising thing
about Gerald Ford being in the right
place at the right time was that this
wasn't the first time that this sort of
thing happened to him. Gerald Ford
became the new vice president in 1973
when Nixon's original vice president,
Spiro Agnew, resigned due to charges
of income tax evasion.

Dear Editor,
National Foster Care Month (May) is an oppor-
tunity for me to thank the countless unrecognized
heroes who do so very much for this area's abused
and neglected children.
As Circuit Director of the Guardian ad Litem
Program (whose sole mission is to advocate for the
best interests of abused and neglected children
whose cases are involved with the courts), I see peo-
ple putting forth extraordinary efforts to benefit
children on a daily basis. However, when a child is
removed from his parents and home and all that he
knows and cares about, few are more important
than matching the child with the right temporary
caregivers.
Time and again, I've witnessed situations
wherein the odds for success were quite poor. How-
ever, in almost every instance, placement with a ca-
pable, caring, consistent, protective and patient
adult made all the difference.
Effective foster parents provide our most vul-
nerable children with the basic necessities of life.
They provide time and comfort and gentle guidance
under awful circumstances. They improve lives and
enhance communities, and for doing so they deserve
much recognition,
On behalf of the 458 local children represented
by the Guardian ad Litem Program and our 93 vol-
unteers, I thank you.

Sincerely,

Linda Dedge,
Circuit Director

The May 20th Cele-
bration has long been
observed by the African-
American community of
Madison. In fact, it may
have been celebrated as
far back as the 19th Cen-
tury. The date commem-
orates that day in 1865
when the Emancipation
Proclamation was read
in Tallahassee which of-
ficially ended the insti-
tution of slavery in
Florida.
These were uncer-
tain days as the curtain
fell on the Confederacy.
Florida's governor John
Milton had taken his
own life in Marianna,
preferring death to sur-
render. As the two re-
maining great
Confederate armies sur-
rendered in Virginia
and North Carolina,
Florida was still largely
untouched by the con-
quering Union armies.
As April turned into
May, Tallahassee re-
mained the last Confed-
erate state capital that
had not surrendered.
On May 10, 1865, Ma-
jor General Edward M.
McCook arrived in Tal-
lahassee from Macon,
GA with his 1st Divi-
sion. Essentially, Mc-
Cook was the military
governor of Florida un-
der martial law. The last
Confederate command
in the state surrendered
three days later and af-
ter another week, Gener-
al Mc Cook had
consolidated sufficient
resources to proclaim
his authority over the
citizens of Florida.
From the steps of
his headquarters at the
Knot House on the
morning of May 20, 1865,
Edward McCook read
the Emancipation
Proclamation ending in-
voluntary servitude in
Florida, once and for all.
Then, the flag of the
United States of Ameri-
ca was hoisted above the
state capitol, demon-
strating sovereignty. No
doubt, these events
made a lasting impres-
sion upon all Floridians,
black and white.
The proclamation


that McCook read that
day had been issued
more than two years be-
fore on New Year's Day,
1863 by President Abra-
ham Lincoln, but at that
point, it was largely
symbolic. That procla-
mation (actually an ex-
ecutive order) ended the
practice of slavery in
the unoccupied Confed-
erate territories, includ-
ing Florida. But that
order could only be en-
forced after the surren-
der.
The civil war be-
tween 1861-65 did not be-
gin as a cause to end
slavery. The early issues
were preservation of the
union and state's rights.
But after more than a
year of fighting and the
bloody Battle of Anti-
etam in September 1862,
Lincoln felt justified to
shift the aim of the war
to end slavery on the
American continent
once and for all.
Lincoln's Emancipa-
tion Proclamation did
not end slavery in Amer-
ica. He understood that
could only be accom-
plished through consti-
tu tional amendment
since it involved depriv-
ing citizens of their pri-
vate property. But he
could end slavery in the
rebellious states be-
cause those people had
renounced their citizen-
ship with secession.
At the time of the
Civil War, more than 80
percent of enslaved
Americans lived in the
South including some 60
thousand Floridians.
They were freed by a
combination of the
Emancipation Procla-
mation and military
rule by the conquering
Union armies. The re-
maining Black Ameri-
cans were not freed until
the XIII Amendment to


the Constitution was
ratified by three-quar-
ters of the states on De-
cember 6, 1865. At that
point, slavery was offi-
cially and forever
banned in the United
States of America.
Slavery was an ugly
chapter in our nation'S
history. The first
African slaves were in-
troduced to the Virginia
colony in 1619, so the in-
stitution was in practice
for nearly 250 years or
twelve generations. To
support the institution,
there was a slave trade
and human auctions.
Runaways, uprisings,
split families, and terri-
ble abuses marred this
practice. On a moral
scale, former slave and
British abolitionist
01audah Equiano
summed the dilemma
this way "How can I be
a child of God and be-
long to another man?"
Beyond the moral prob-
lem was a skewed eco-
nomic order which
devalued labor.
At the start of our
nation, the founders at
the Constitutional Con-
vention were unable tO
resolve the dilemma of
slavery. Thomas Jeffer-
son's immortal words in
the Declaration of Inde-
pendence that "all men
are created equal and
endowed by their cre-
ator with ... the right of
liberty" did not apply to
Black Americans.

That oversight was
not corrected until
eighty years later when
a great civil war result-
ed in the deaths of two-
thirds of a million and
economic ruin of the
South. Only then did the
rights granted by the
Constitution apply to all
citizens, regardless of
their race.

Hn 8 ,000A7
Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports
that on Tuesday the 11th day of May 2010 at 3:55 PM
Investigators of the Madison County Sheriff 's Office
Drug Task Force stopped a vehicle on Interstate 10
for a traffic infraction that resulted in the seizure of
$7,000.00 and a 2003 Acura 2 door sedan that is now
pending forfeiture proceedings.
During the traffic stop, Investigators detected
signs of possible criminal activity and requested
consent to search the vehicle and contents contained
within. The driver and passenger, who were the only
occupants in the vehicle, granted the request for
consent to search. During the search, Investigators
located twvo non factory constructed compartments,
also known as "traps" or "false compartments"
within the vehicle. Investigators were able to access
the compartments and when doing so found one of
the compartments to be empty and the other com-
partment containing one brick sized package. The
package was opened and found to contain $7,000.00.
The package was consistent of a fashion indica-
tive of a drug courier's method for transporting cur-
rency for drug transactions.
The driver and passenger denied having any
knowledge of the fabricated compartments in the
vehicle or the currency concealed within the com-
partment. The driver and passenger further stated
that they did not own the currency or know who the
owner was. The vehicle and currency were seized.
The driver and passenger voluntarily signed a dis-
claimer stating that they did not own the currency
and was given a receipt for the currency before be-
ing released,
The Drug Enforcement Administration (D.E.A.)
adopted the case for F'ederal Seizure.
The Task Fiorce was assisted by the Sheriff's Os
fice Patrol Division and the Florida Highway Patrol.

alert on the vehicle.
Investigators conducted a probable cause search
of the vehicle and the contents contained within.
While doing so, investigators located a large blue
Rubbermaid cooler contained within the trunk.
Further search of the cooler revealed that it had
been altered. The cooler was disassembled and
found to contain three large packages concealed
within the liner of the cooler. Once the packages
were removed and opened, investigators recovered
$100,071.00 in U.S. currency. .
The packages were consistent of a fashion mn-
dicative of a drug courier's method for transporting
currency for drug transactions.
The driver and passenger denied having any
knowledge of the currency located in the cooler and
stated that they purchased the cooler from a "crack-
head" for $5. The driver and passenger further stat-
ed that they did not own the currency or know who
the owner was. The cooler and currency were seized.
The driver and passenger both voluntarily
signed a disclaimer stating the currency did not be-
long to them and were receipted for the currency be-
fore being released.
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)
has adopted the case for federal seizure.
The Sheriff's Office Patrol Division assisted the
Drug Task Force investigators.

thereafter located the firearm buried under an oak
tree in a wooded area. Without this consolidated ef-

never been found.
As a result of the discovery, the following was
arrested and charged MlacArther F~ord, 37, of Madi-

a firearm by a convicted felon and concealing and

Things you should know: it costs you money to
leave your body to science.
"It's cheaper to bury you," said Deborah Rivera,
staff attorney for Three Rivers Legal Services, who
gave riveting information about end of life issues,
wcills, probate and related questions at the 55 Plus
Club on May 12. After investigating the cost to em-
balm a body and transport it to the University of
Florida med school, Rivera said the cost is about
$3,000.
The 55 Plus Club's MI/ay Lunchneon was spiced
with plenty of laughter. Despite the tough topic of
Putting Your Affairs in Order, attorney Rivera man-
aged to keep the talk fun and engaging. Ruth Hern-
don, chairperson of the United Methodist
Cooperative Ministries, introduced her, while com-
plimentary sandwiches, salad, desserts and tea were
served buffet-style to interested senior citizens.
Rivera, with 22 years experience as an attorney,
pulled no punches in her advice. "Anyone over 18
should have a Living WWil," she said. A Living W~ill is
an Advance Directive in case of a serious illness in
which a person isn't able to speak for himself, but
still wants his wishes known.
A family member may be appointed in advance
to make health decisions for a person, but Deborah
Rivera doesn't recommend co-health care surrogates.
"In my line of work, anything with two heads is a


to ten people." Also, she warned that leaving home-
steaded property to non-family members or instruct-
ing that the property be sold and the money divided
causes the property to lose its homestead protection
from creditors.
Attorney Deborah Rivera said shne goes back to
carbon paper, and in the time since then, wills re-
main as important documents. In the past, every
teacup and spoon was listed in the will. One change
she prefers these days is to add a Separate writing at
the back of the will, in which personal property "like
your Royal Doulton China" can be given away.
Rivera got laughs when shet suggested that in-
stead of disinheriting "worthless" children, one
should write in the will, "I love all my children, but it
is my desire that they take nothing under this wnl."
At the end of her talk, Rivera answered ques-
tions and distributed pamphlets on Probate in Flori-
da and Florida Powers of Attorney, published for
consumers by The Florida Bar. She reminded seniors
they qualify for a half hour Florida Bar referral for
$25, with an attorney in estate planning or probate.
The phone number is (800) 342-8011.
The purpose of the 55 Plus Club is to meet for
Christian fellowship over lunch with informative
programs geared to seniors in the community. There
is no charge for seniors to attend the monthly lun-
cheons at the United Methodist Cooperative Min-
istries building, 135 NE Dil Street, Madison. Call
929-4938 for more information.

monster," she explained. She has seen two relatives
making health decisions for someone result in noth-
ing but locked horns and arguments.
Rivera suggested including burial and contact in-
formation in the Living Will, since this information
may not be readily found if the person dies.
Things to avoid in writing legal wills, says
Rivera, would be "leaving your one-acre mobile home

The Suwannee Val-
ley Humane Society, lo-
cated in Lee, is the new
residence for several cats
and dogs. With over 50
volunteers, and still more
needed, the animals at
SVHC are treated like


royalty This humane so-
ciety is also a no kill shel-
ter.
New entrees into the
humane society are wel-
comed with open arms,
however a person must
call first before bringing
their animal in. Space is
limited to 75 residents at


a time. Barbara Tippie
shared, "We could adopt
off one cat, but we will
have ten more waiting to
get in."
Dogs and puppies re-
siding in SVHC are given
their rabies shots, spayed
or neutered, 5 in 1 shots,
wormed and all will be
heart worm tested unless
the puppy is under six
months old.
Cats and kittens will
be spayed and neutered,
receive rabies shots, will
be wormed and also will
be feline leukemia tested.
While in the resi-
dence the animals are
cleaned and treated as if
they were at home. The
dogs are taken for walks,
some are taught tricks
and all receive treats
when they are well be-
haved. Cats are played
with, petted and given
time to roam the cat
room.
The Suwannee Val-
ley Humane Society's
goal is to help all of the
animals they can. Howev-


er, with a large amount of
help needed, it is hard to
assist every animal.
SVHC is not county
or state funded; Every-
thing they have is thanks
to volunteers, donations
and their thrift store lo-
cated next to the animal
shelter.
Adoption opportuni-
ties that the shelter put
on include their Dia-
monds in the Ruff pro-
gram. This is a program
that allows someone to
sponsor an animal that
has been in the shelter


for over a year. The fee to
adopt is $30 and every-
thing else is still done.
SVHC also has a special
that allows senior citi-
zens to adopt pets at a re-
duced price.
Suwiannee Valley Hu-
mane Society also hosts
two major pet shows. One
is in October and the oth-
er is in May This year it
was hnosted on Mlay 8 and
was a great success. The
staff hopes for many
more entries next year,
The staff at SVHC is
always looking for more


help in any way avail-
able. Donations of food,
newspapers, treats and
litter are always wel-
come. Also more volun-
teers to train and walk
the animals are greatly
needed.
Barbara Tippie
shared with this reporter
at first joking, "our goal
is to run out of animals,"
then, taking a serious
tone, "but really to find
forever homes for these
animals is what we want.
Good homes that will
take good care of them."


Siblings Jazz, right, and Jasmine, left, are nine
weeks old. They are looking to find a new home,

Now Is The Time For Stocking


Question:
Is it true that toothaches hurt worse
in airplanes?




I have heard patients talk about toothaches
in. airplanes and scuba diving. I wouldn't
advise either. The idea with scuba diving is
that diving down to greater depth and
pressure can actually relieve the pressure
within a toothache and make it feel better.
That works fine until you run out of air and it
is time to come to the surface. Wow, then the
pain will come back with a vengeance.

Airplanes are the opposite. Toothaches
will suddenly start as the planes climbs and
the pressure drops. Talk about making for a
long miserable trip. I had one patient that had
a toothache and he was piloting his own
plane. Toothaches and airplanes are a bad
combination. For that matter, toothaches with
anything is a bad combination.

If you like to scuba dive, get a check up.
If you travel in airplanes regularly, get a
ch~ec~kup.

This summer, 46
youth in six counties
will be mentored and
placed in jobs, thanks to
the Summer Youth Pro-
gram 2010, which is part
of Workforce's Job
Squad.
"Sometimes in their
home life, they're not
getting the support they
need," said Sara Shep-
herd, youth career con-
sultant, who is on the
frontlines to guide youth
toward new goals. "I try
to let them know there
are resources out there,"
she said.
Shirley Stephens is
also a youth, career con-
Ri'!"snt eothe hpircohgnn
erally serves youth age
16-21.
Sylvia Diggs over-
sees the Summer Youth
Program as the coordi-
nator in Madison,
Hamilton, Jefferson,
Lafayette, Suwannee
and Taylor. She is a con-
fident leader who wants
parents to be involved
and her experience
comes from working in
similar programs in
Chicago.
"I have a connection
with the youth," said
Diggs. "I feel their pain
and I can see past the
facade they're giving
me. I can see their
tears."
Diggs is inviting
mayors of local commu-
nities to meet youth in


the summer program,
because many don't
know their government
leaders.
She reminds youth
who are struggling: "You
are not your past." It
doesn't matter whether
they are drop-outs, from
low-income families, in
foster care or homeless,
ex-offenders, teenage
parents or dealing with
a limited work history.
"The youth come in
and they do a week of
work-readiness class-
es," explained Diane
Head, public rela-
tions/special projects
director for Workforce.
"We're going to have 17
youth in, thne summer

job success and work-
place etiquette.
Online education in
three areas is available to
youth or adults through
the Florida Ready to
Work Credential: reading
for information, locating
information. and applied
mathematics.
The certificate is is-
sued in three levels,
Gold, Silver and Bronze,
and may be attached to a
resume.
Diane Head said the
benefit to local employ-
ers hiring youth for sum-
mer is that they're giving
back to the community
and may be investing m
the future when. a good
worker is trained over
the summer. 'Another
benefit," she said, "is


that if you have a project
that you can't break
away to do and it's time
consuming, it's a good
project for a youth to
do."
One need for young
people entering the
workforce is to know
their hard work is being
recognized. If they quali-


fy, youth in the Workforce

The old joke goes that paramedics save
lives, while EMTs (emergency medical techni-
cians) save paramedics, but that's not necessar-
ily so.
Paramedics have a year's more experience
in the classroom than EMTs (who are required
to put in six months) do.
Paramedics can do basic medical proce-
dures, which include giving shots for pain,
reading electrocardiograms (EKGS), adminis-
tering intravenous fluids and performing car-
diac draws. EMTs are not allowed to do these
thingS.
EMTs are allowed to do basic lifesaving and
first aid procedures.
All paramedics and EMTs should be saluted
for their commitment to go above and beyond
the call of duty.
Madison County has a total of 14 full-time
paramedics and seven reserve paramedics.
Shift supervisors are Lisa Jordan, Jimmy
Kent and Nathan Williams.
There are a total of six full-time EMTs and six
reserve EMTs for Madison County's EMS crew.
Juan Botino serves as the EMS Director.
Nathan Williams is the assistant director. Brett

Weddings don't have to
be all that stressful, but
they are. The first thing you
have to do is relax. That's
easier said than done, but
calm down. Everything will
go fine. If it doesn't, nobody
really cares anyway. What
they care about is helping
you celebrate one of the
most important days in
your life.
Following are a few sim-
ple little hints. Make a to-do
list, with a timeline, if you
haven't done so already.
Check off each item as it's
done. Youll be surprised how
much you've gotten accom-
plished in a short time. Allow
yourself plenty of time for
everything, but don't do any-
thing too early. If you do,
youll find yourself obsessing
over the whole wedding. Ask
other people to do some
things. Don't try to do it all
yourself.
When you're making
your list, start a list of the
wedding pictures you want.
The day of the wedding, you
won't be thinking of that
when the photographer is
shooting the pictures. After
the wedding is over, you don't
want to be looking at the pic-
tures and realize you forgot
to get a picture of your mom.
Not that she would let you
forget anyway, but you get the
point. Have the photographer
check off the list as he/she is
shooting so they don't forget
either. As you think of people
you want in the pictures, add
to the list. Before the actual
wedding, cross off any pic-
tures you can live without if
you're trying to save money
on the pictures. Don't forget
to add the minister into one


of the pictures, especially if
you know them personally.
If you're doing your own
catering, use the 6" plates. Itl1
save money, (you won't have
to buy two different sizes,)
and the 6" are cheaper. If you
have one of the warehouse
places like Sam's, they have
really nice clear plates. It11
save on food, also. If people
have a large plate, they fill it
up all the way.
At the wedding shower,
bachelor/ bachelorette party,
reception, and any other
time, be very sure you or
someone else makes a list of
the gifts. There is more con-
fusion here than anyplace
else, and if someone cares
enough about you to give you
a gift, you don't want to hurt
their feelings by forgetting
the thank-you card. After you
get back from the honey-
moon, make doing the cards


your first priority. Here's a
neat little idea. If someone
gives you a gift certificate or
money, take a picture of what
you used the money to buy
Enclose it with the thank-you
card. "Thank you for the
money--we used it to buy this
lovely cookie jar" is so much
nicer than "Thanks for the
money" Also, for your friends
that sent a gift but couldn't
come to the wedding, try to
enclose a ribbon, or match-
book, or program, if you had
them at your wedding.
After the wedding, turn
your bouquet into a wall
hanging. Take a straw broom
from a craft store (not the
cinnamon kind--they stain),


wrap the handle in ribbon,
and attach the bouquet. Push
the groom's boutonniere into
your bouquet so they stay to-
gether. Also, the craft stores
now have a plastic "bubble"
that fits inside an oval pic-
ture frame. They come in
several different sizes. You
can put your bouquet inside
there. If you do, you might
also put one of your invita-
tions. Hang it in a prominent
position if you do so the hub-
by can't forget your anniver-


sary date.
Can't find a decent

Miz Vickie says -- wed-
dings can be terrible or ter-
rific. Your choice! Don't
hesitate in getting assis-
tance. You can use a "regu-
lar" wedding coordinator,
;..


family, or friends. On your
wedding day, the couple
should focus on themselves
and not on other things, so
leave the last-minute "stuff '
to someone you trust to tie
all the pieces together.
There is no place for frus-
tration on your wedding
day, just flexibility, and lots
of it!
Remember: Relax! En-
joy your day. Don't get so
stressed you ruin your wed-
ding.

Povie d B ad Ba haw, Edward Jon

As you strive to achieve your long-term goals, such as
a comfortable retirement, you may, at times, feel frus-
trated over events you can't influence, such as the up-
and-down movements of the financial markets. Yet
there is much you can control once you determine
the answers to just five key questions.

Where am I today? Take stock of all your assets -
your IRA, 401(k) and other savings and investment
accounts. Then, do the same for your debts, such as
your mortgage and any other financial obligations. On
your financial journey through life, it's essential that
you know your starting point.

wVhere would I like to in I Onc~elyo~u'veees ab shhe
you'd like to be tomorrow. How much will you need to
pay for the retirement lifestyle you've envisioned? Will
you be able to help pay for your children's or grandchil-
dren's college education? Will you need to support any
other family members? At this stage, you'll want to
write down all your goals and put a price tag on each
one

Can I get there? After you've identified your goals,
determine if they are, in fact, achievable. By consider-
ing a variety of factors including your likely future
income stream and your family situation you should
be able to determine if you can attain your goals or if
you need to modify them in some way.
How do I get there? Now it's time to put a strategy
into action. Specifically, you need to choose those
investments that can help you pursue the goals you've
selected. Your ideal portfolio will depend on your risk
tolerance and time horizon, but in general, you'll want
a diversified mix of quality investments. While diversifi-
cation, by itself, cannot guarantee a profit or protect
against loss, it can help reduce the effects of volatility.
As you put together your holdings, make sure you
understand what you can expect from your invest-
ments. For example, growth stocks may offer the high-
est potential returns, but they also carry the greatest
risk. On the other hand, investment-grade bonds can
offer a steady income stream and, barring the default
of the issuer, will repay your principal when they
mature.

How can I stay on track? Once you've built your
investment portfolio, you'll need to review it regularly
- at least once a year to help ensure it's still meet-
ing your needs. After all, many things can and will
change in your life, such as your family situation, your
goals, your employment and your risk tolerance. To
address these changes, you'll need to adjust your
portfolio over time.

As you can see, answering all these questions will
take both work and expertise. That's why you may
want to work with a professional financial advisor to
help you identify your goals and create a strategy for
pursuing them.

In any case, though, start asking and answering -
these five key questions as soon as you can. It's easi-
er to reach your financial goals if you put time on your
side.

(NAPS)--According to recent studies, almost all
consumers (94 percent) say they have used coupons
on household items and groceries at least once in
the past year, and 77 percent are now using coupons
regularly. With everyone looking to save more, there
are simple strategies to help you make the most of
those coupons.
1. Double your savings. Many stores will let
you "stack" coupons by combining store discounts
with manufacturer offers. Sign up for rewards cards
and visit the websites of your favorite drugstore and
grocery chains to receive printable store coupons
you can combine with manufacturer coupons from
magazines, newspapers and other websites.
2. When you get to the store, look before
you shop for coupons you can use right away.
CVS/pharmacy recently added kiosks called Ex-
traCare Coupon Centers in nearly all 7,000 stores
across the country. At the start of each trip, cus-
tomers can scan their rewards cards at these
Coupon Centers and print any available coupons be-
fore they shop. This often includes a new personal-
ized, instant coupon that can be redeemed that same
visit. Using coupons immediately means you won't
forget or lose them and you'll save more. If you don't
already have a CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare card, sign
up at your closest store and start printing coupons
today.
3. Be smart with "Buy One, Get one Free"
deals. When you buy two products included in a
store BOGO discount offer, you can usually still use
two manufacturer coupons that reduce the price of
each individual one. Even though you're getting one
product free, at most stores you will still see the ex-
tra savings reflected in your total bill.

The Aucilla Christian Academy Lady Warriors
softball team ended the post season with a 16-12
record, after taking victories in the first two
rounds of the Regional Championship and drop-
ping the final round to wind up Regional Runner-
Up. Aucilla did, however, make it into the "Elite 8"
in the state for Class 1A and just one win away from
State.
As the district runner-up, Aucilla went into the
Regional Quarterfinal, April 27, against Paxton and
came out on top with a 5-2 win.
"We had to travel to Paxton to play since we
were the district runner up," said Coach Edwin Kin-
sey. "The girls played well. They knew going into
the game if we did not play well and lost, our season
would be over. They also knew if they won, they
might get another chance against Munroe in the Re-
gional Semi-Final. Needless to say, the girls got the
Job done," Kinsey added.
On the mound, Taryn Copeland pitched a com-
plete game, giving up 2 runs on 6 hits, 1 walk and
striking out 8 batters.
At the plate, Kaitlin Jackson went 1 for 3 and
reached base on a walk.
Brooke Kinsey went 1 for 3 with a walk.
Sunnie Sorensen went 1 for 3 with 1 run scored.
Ashley Schofill went 2 for 3 with 2 runs scored.
Copeland went 1 for 3 with 1 run scored and 1
RBI.
Pamela Watt went 2 for 3 with 1 run scored and
1 RBI.
Sarah Sorensen went 0 for 2, reached base when


she was hit by a pitch and had 1 stolen base.
Katlyn Watts went 0 for 3 with 3 RBI's.
The Lady Warriors got their wish when they
went into the Regional Semi-Final against Munroe,
May 1 and Aucilla blanked their adversary, 6-0.
The game was originally scheduled for Friday,
April 30, but the game had to be rescheduled to Sat-
urday due to heavy rain.
"Munroe beat us for the district title this year
and the girls wanted another shot at them. They
were very focused and ready to play ball," said Kin-
sey.
On the mound, Copeland pitched an outstanding
complete game. She gave up no runs on 3 hits, I
walk and struck out 8 batters. "She held Munroe'S
two biggest hitters completely in check during this
game," said Kinsey.
At the plate, Jackson went 2 for 4 with 2 runs
scored and 3 stolen bases.
Brooke Kinsey went 1 for 3 with 1 run scored.
Sunnie Sorensen went 2 for 4 with 1 run scored
and 2 RBI's.
Schofill went 3 for 4 with 1 double, 2 runs scored
and 2 RBI's.
Copeland went 1 for 3.
Kelli Evans went 1 for 1 with 1 RBI.
Brooke Kinsley reached base on an error and
got an RBI.
"The girls came ready to play today. Everybody
did a great job," Kinsey added.
The Lady Warriors went into the Regional Fi-
nal, May 5, against Eagle's View Academy and Au-
cilla was drilled for a 7-0 loss.
"We played a pretty good game defensively. How-
ever, we could not get our
bats going," said Kinsey.
"We only had 4 base run-
ners the entire game and
only 2 hits.
You just cannot beat a
team as good as Eagle's
View like that."
On the mound,
Copeland pitched the en-
tire game, giving up 7
runs on 7 hits, 3 walks and
striking out 4 batters.
At the plate, Brooke
Kinsey went 0 for 3 and
reached base on error.
Sunnie Sorensen
went 1 for 3.
a ~Copeland went 1 for 3.
Sarah Sorensen went
0 for 1 and reached base
on a walk.
"Overall, we had a
good year, we just came
up one game short in the
end.
We have all of our
starters back for next
year, so I am looking for-
ward to another good
year," Kinsey concluded.
