Gene vleve
Agusta Fernand .
passed peaceful -a~
ly away on May r
13 at the Lake
Park of Madi-
son Nursing
Home, where
she had
resided since
June 2008.

Chicago on a~
July 15, 1907, to
Louie and Agus-
ta Sutor, she was~
taken to Polandl at
the age of six w it h
her mother to visit herf
sick grandmother. When
they arrived, they found the grandmother had al-
ready died. Visiting in Poland turned to tragedy
when Genevieve's mother suddenly died, perhaps
of tuberculosis. She was never told. She lived be-
tween her father's parents and aunts and worked on
the potato farm with the cousins. They had to make
enough sauerkraut from the cabbages to last the
whole year. They atelimited meat only if a neighbor
had some to spare. She told how she could only
wear her shoes to church and ice-skated barefooted
for some fun. When she was about 15 and World
War I was over, her father sent for her, and she set
out for the United States. H-er grandmother gave
her only a $10 gold piece and, in Antwerp, Belgium,
she was robbed by gypsies, who took the gold and
her passport. She w~as taken to the American em-
bassy where she met President Woodrow wilson's
wife. She often talked of how sweet she was to her.
With new papers, she arrived back in the states.
Unfortunately, her father never came to pick her up
and she was placed in, jail for the night with a
bunch of hookers. The next day, her picture ap-
peared in the paper and as they were about to put
her in an orphanage her stepmother arrived to take
her home. She has no knowledge of the stepmother
and four siblings. She asked her father if she could
go to school and he said she would have to go to
work. She worked at Swift and Co. for a while mak-
ing $20 a week from which she was given five cents.
She saved her nickels and got herself candles by
which she stayed up at night learning to read. Her
stepmother caught her and forbade it so she moved
out to live in a friend's house. Hler friend
Stephanie's father drank on payday and would line
up the children and hit them. Genevieve took it
upon herself to stop this and took the strap and hit
him with it. He never bothered the children again.
She always took jobs with her friend,
Stephanie. They were working in the hotel where
Al Capone came a lot when she met her dear hus-
band Bert. She was a pastry girl and when he sawv
her coming with the tray, he would walk up two
steps to reach the pastries and get one in each hand.
This started a short courtship between them. He
asked her to go out with him and she asked if he
had a car. "Yes," was the answer. "Well I can't go out
with you then." She and her friend had gone on a
picnic with two fellows in their car and they got
frisky and they had to walk home. Bert sold his new
touring car and two months later they were mnar-
ried in Stephanie's house on April 19, 1927, which
was Bert's birthday.
They had one child a year later in March
(Jeanette) and due to the Great Depression started
to migrate to New York. Things were rough then
and people were lucky to get work. They settled in
Brooklyn, with new friends that they had met on
the way in Ohio. They moved to Long Island where
they got their first house in Richmond Hill. They
worked hard fixing it up and eventually moved St.
Albans each time bettering themselves. The last
house in Hluntington, was a twvo family split level
that Bert designed and built. Their daughter, son-in-
law Arthur and three children and Mother in law all
lived in it. In 1961 Bert decided to move to Florida
and purchased his Cherry Lake home. Lots of re-
pairs and hard work turned the house into a really
nice home. Grandchildren visited often and grew to
love the area. Genevieve worked at NFJC as a salad
maker when they had their large kitchen. An acci-
dent in a gas station left her paralyzed for three days
and she couldn't work at the college anymore. In
1976, Bert built a house on Cherry Lake Circle for his
daughter and family. He was 81 then. Arthur and the

Wednesday, Mlay 26, 2010

I saw something on
the news the other
morning that appalled
me. Members of OUR
United States Congress
gave a standing ovation
to Mexican President
Felipe Calderon after he
condemned the new Ari-
zona immigration. law.
It doesn't matter
which individual sup-
ports that particular law
and who doesn't. The
fact is that Arizona
made a law and our US
Congress gave a stand-
ing ovation that is
AGAINST one of our
housee divided
against itself cannot
stand. "(Matthew 12:25)
Yet, while the Mexi-
can President is con-
demning Arizona for
tougher immigration
laws (which it's having
to do because the federal
government won't step
up to the plate) he him-
self has said that Mlexico
has basically the same
immigration laws that
Arizona is now enforc-

ference between Ari-
zona's laws and Mexi-
co's laws? In Arizona the
law states that a police-
man, during an arrest or
detention, thinks some-
one is an illegal immi-
grant, then he can ask
for documentation. The
difference would be that
in Mexico they don't
have all the governmen-
tal control that America
has. A policeman can do
just about anything apo-
liceman wants to do.
Meaning, he can walk
up to anyone at anytime
and ask for documenta-
tion with no previous
detention needed.
Why is Arizona
catching so much bad
press for enforcing a law
that other countries all
around this world en-
force. Every country has
tough immigration
laws, except America.
The fact is, Arizona is
now stepping up and do-
ing what our federal
government won't do,
and OUR US Congress
gives the Mexican presi-
dent a standing ovation
for it.
Something is wrong
with that picture!

concerning this state-
ment. Hlis reply wlas
that this WAS true up
until one year ago.
However, a year ago
that part of the law had
been "erased."
H-owever, he then
went into detail explain-
ing that a Mexican Po-
liceman can ask a
citizen to showv proper
documentation, and if
found to be an illegal im-
migrant then that per-
son is deported. He also
stated that 'No they can-
not stay in Mexico and
work and live there.
They are deported.'
So, what is the dif-

In TIhe Wi~ashington
Times, May 3, 2010 edi-
tion it says, "Under the
Mexican law, illegal im-
migration is a felony,
punishable for up to twlo
years in, prison. Immi-
grants who are deported
and attempt to re-enter

years. Visa violators can

President F'elipe
Calderon was ques-

vision last week

"Another balloon animal? And who da you
think ends up taking care of these?"

Ray C. Robinson
(1930 2004) was born in
Albany, Georgia during
the Great Depression.
You probably think
you've heard of him, but
like most of the men and
women profiled in this
column, you're not sure.
Until now.
Ray had what most
of us would consider to
be a rough life, but you

would never know it by
his positive outlook on
life. He was born into
poverty and his mother
had only a fourth, grade
education. He overcame
two tragedies early in
his life; first, his
younger brother died
when. Ray was just five~,
and his mother died
when he was fifteen. De-
spite all this, he went on
to have a successful ca-
reer as a gospel, jazz
and blues musician who
even did some country
and pop songs. Some
people credit Ray C.
Robinson for inventing
soul music.
Ray was sent away
to a special school in St.
Augustine, Florida,
when he wvas a child. It
was time to hit the road,
Jack. But this was for
his own good, and he
seemed to benefit from
the experience, as he
learned to play the pi-
ano, clarinet, saxo-
phone, trumpet and
organ while he was
there. But he always had
Georgia on his mind.
While he was away
at school, his mother
died. His father died
two years later. The
thing that Ray feared
most, though, was the
thought of losing his
hearing. You'll know
why in a minute.
As an adult, Ray
had more challenges to
overcome in his person-
al life. He abused heroin
for 17 years, which re-
sulted in three arrests.
Hle was married twice
and fathered twelve
children by nine dif-

ferent women.
But he continued to
create great music. In
1946, he began his pro-
fessional career playing
with local bands in Jack-
sonville, Florida. Two
years later he moved to
Seattle and formed a
jazz and blues group
known as The Maxim
Trio. He also adopted
the stage name of R.C.
Robinson. He always
claimed that he trusted
people, yet he insisted
on being paid in single
dollar bills every time.
You'll know why in a
The following year,
in 1949, he changed his
professional name once
again and released his
first single. Throughout
his career, Ray earned a
number of important
awards and honors, in-
*The Horatio Al-
ger Award (1995)
*Winner of 12
Grammy Awards
*Induction into
the Roll Hall of Fame's
original class (1986)
*One of his songs
was proclaimed as the
state song of Georgia
Hollywvood made
a movie about his ca-
reer, in which Jamie
Foxx won an Academy
Award for his portrayal
of Ray (2005)
*Winner of the
Helen Keller Personal
Achievement Award
Why would Ray be
eligible for the Hlelen
Ke~ller Award?
The school that he

went to as a child was a
school for the blind. At
age five, he began to lose
his sight, and by age sev-
en, het was completely
blind. By this time,
though, he had already
begun to learn how to
play music, so his blind-
ness didn't hurt his abil-
ity to perform.
When you see all
those celebrities on TV
wearing sunglasses in-
doors, they are merely
following the example
that Ray Robinson set
more than 50 years ago,
because Ray always
wore sunglasses in-
doors. And he always
had a smile on his face.
So his name still
doesn't ring a bell, yet
you've heard of him. His
name could get confused
with that of Sugar Ray
Robinson, one of the
greatest boxers of all
time. In fact, Ray C.
Robinson shortened his
name when he entered
show business in order
to avoid having his
name confused with that
of Sugar Ray Robinson.
Because Ray
Charles Robinson, the
musician who cranked
out such hits as "Geor-
gia on My Mind" and
"H-it the Road, Jack,"
was none other than ...
Ray Charles.

Mladison County Carrier 3A

I'm not sure who
originated the term
"bum rush" to de-
scribe the idea of
tossing a ne'er-do-
well into the street.
Probably somebody
frOm a Brooklyn bowc-
ery. At any rate, bum
Tush is a good term to
describe the anti-in-
cumbent mood that is
Shaping up for this
fall's mid-term elec-
This is not just an
American phenome-
non. After 13 years in
power, British voters
gave the heave-ho to
Gordon Brown's La-
bor Party. The pre-
vailing mood is
something like this -
'we don't know whnat
we want, but we know
that what we have is-
n't working, so let's
try something differ-
ent.' In Greece, peo-
ple are rioting in the
street as their econo-
my teeters on the
brink of collapse.
In the wake of the
global financial melt-
down two years ago,
consumers made a
conservative adjust-
ment - they reduced
expenditures and
went on a strict bud-
get to reduce person-
al risk. Politicians
didn't get it. They
went on a spending
spree (bailouts, stim-
ulus and new entitle-
ments) that has
driven our country
into greater debt and
increased risk.
Have the politi-
cians learned their
lesson? No. The lat-
est from Capitol Hill
is that the majority
Democrats are ready-
ing legislation that
will add another half
trillion to the deficit
..before this fall's
election. Their atti-
tude is similar to An-
imal House's Delta
fraternity whose re-
sponse to being dis-
banded was to throw
one last blow-out par-
It's not a good
time to be an incum-
bent politician - sort
of like a deer on the
first day of hunting
season. The warning
signs are everywhere.
Last fall, we had two
gubernatorial races
(New Jersey and Vir-
ginia) where voters
said "enough" and
elected long-shots. In
January, we had the
shocking special elec-
tion in Massachu-
setts where Scott
Brown wcas elected to
replace the late Sena-

JOe BOyleS
Guest Colummist

tor Edward Kennedy.
This phenomenon
is non-partisan.
Pennsylvania voters
decided to unseat
five-term Washington
crony Arlen Specter -
they decided that
party -switching
Arlen was out for
himself rather than
the people he suppos-
edly represented. De-
mocrat voters
decided to replace
long-serving Alan
Mollohan in West
Virginia. Not to be
outdone, Utah Repub-
licans gave the boot
to three-term Senator
Bob Bennett.
In our own back-
yard, Governor Crist
felt so much voter re-
jection in quest of
the vacant Senate
seat that he quit the
Republican Party to
run as an indepen-
dent. In Kentucky,
the GOP establish-
ment candidate was
trounced by Libertar-
ian Rand Paul for the
Republican Senate
nomination. The ef-
fect of the grass-
roots Tea Party
movement is felt
Dozens of long-
time comfortable
politicians are choos-
ing to retire rather
than face the voter's
wrath, this November.
Remember Bart Stu-
pak from Michigan's
Upper Peninsula?
His political career is
over. The latest is
David Obey (WI-7)
who has chosen to
cash in his chips af-
ter a mere 41 years in
Obey is chairman
of the House Appro-
priations Committee,
the folks that write
the Federal budget.
A lot of the 2010 po-
litical casualties are
appropriators (big
spenders) including
Bennett, Mollohan,
and Specter. A lot of
the anti-incumbent
fervor is driven by
anger over out-of-
control spending.
Run-away debt is a
close second.
In addition to vol-
untary retirements,
there are involuntary
retirements as well.
Both, sides have lost a

congressman recent-
ly from the obligato-
ry sex-scandal and
every now and then,
the grim reaper is-
sues his own term
limit notice as was
the case with the late
John Murtha of
Pennsylvania. Some
of these fellows
won't leave their
Congressional gig
until they're carried
out feet-first.
Democrats argue
that Republicans are
just as bad as they
are when it comes to
overspending. Do
you really want to
justify your political
future with that lame
I say throw all the
bum~s into the street
and start fresh! That
probably won't hap-
pen but this fall
promises to bring us
plenty of political ca-
sualties. This is not a
bus in ess -as -usual
There are twvo po-
litical reforms that I
would like to see gain
momentum with this
unusual election.
First would be re_
newved interest in
term limits. We need
fewer professional
politicians and more
citizen legislators, in
my opinion. We need
more "main street"
people with busineSS
experience writing
our laws rather than
Washington insiders
who are primarily in-
terested in their own
Second, we need
earmark reform to se"
verely limit the num-
ber and cost of
"goodies" that politi-
cians can dole out to
ensure their reelec-
tion. The harm and
abuse from this cor-
rupt system far out-
weighs the good.
The mid-term elec-
tions promise to be
unusual and exciting
this year. Not since
the 1994 election have
we seen this much mo-
mentum for a new
start. Come January,
we'll see a lot of new,
fresh faces on Capitol
Hill. Whether or not
the election results in
meaningful reform re-
mains to be seen.

Form To Claim Payroll Tax Exemption

For Hiring New Workers Now Available

instructions (http://www.
pdf/i941.pd/) for the new Form 941 explain how
this credit for wages paid from March 19 through
March 31 can be claimed on the second quarter re-
turn. The form and instructions are now available
for download on
The HIRE Act requires that employers get a
signed statement from each eligible new hire, cer-
tifying under penalties of perjury, that he or she
was not employed for more than 40 hours during
the 60 days before beginning employment with
that employer. Employers can use new Form W-11
(http://www., Hiring
Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act Em-
ployee Affidavit, released last month, to meet this
requirement. Though employers need this certifi-
cation to claim both the payroll tax exemption and
the new hire retention credit, they do not file these
statements with the IRS. Instead, they must retain
them along with other payroll and income tax
These two tax benefits are especially helpful to
employers who are adding positions to their pay-
rolls. New hires filling existing positions also
qualify as long as they are replacing workers who

members and other relatives do not qualify for ei-

teB snes es x b ec 1ural employers, tax-ex-
umpt organizations, tribal governments and pub-
lc colleges and universities all qualify to claim the
payroll tax exemption for eligible newly hired em-
ployees. Household employers and federal, state
mnd local government employers, other than pub-
lc colleges and universities, are not eligible.

Like the Benefits of a 401(k) or an
IRA? Check out the 529 Plan

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones

If you have young children, the end of another school
year means you are now one year closer to the day
when you send them to college and one year clos-
er to dealing with the high costs of higher education.
However, you still have time to save and invest and
one of the best investment choices you can make is a
Section 529 college savings plan.
In fact, a 529 plan contains, in just one account,
some of the key advantages found in other attractive
investment vehicles, such as a 401(k) or IRA. Consider
the following:
Tax-advantaged earnings Roth IRA earnings
accumulate tax free and are distributed tax free, pro-
vided the account is at least five years old and the
account owner doesn't start taking withdrawals until
at least age 59V/2. Similarly, a 529 plan's earnings
accumulate tax free and are distributed tax free, pro-
vided they are used for qualified higher education
expenses. (Keep in mind, though, that 529 plan distri-
butions not used for qualified expenses may be sub-
ject to federal and state income tax and a 10% penal-
ty.) Furthermore, your 529 plan contributions may be
deductible from your state taxes. However, 529 plans
vary, so be sure to check with your tax advisor.
*High contribution limits For 2010, you can
put up to $16,500 into a 401(k) plan, or $22,000 if
you're 50 or older. If you have an IRA, you can con-
tribute up to $5,000 in 2010, or $6,000 if you're 50 or
older. The lifetime contribution limits for 529 plans
may be more generous. While the limits vary by state,
many plans allow contributions in excess of
$200,000, according to the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission. Contributions to 529 plans
are considered gifts; therefore, the $ 13,000 gift limit
should be considered.
*Asset allocation One key to being a success-
ful investor is choosing the mix of investments -
such as stocks, bonds and government securities -
that are appropriate for your risk tolerance and time
horizon. A professional financial advisor can help you
create a suitable asset allocation for your 401(k), IRA
or other investment accounts. Most 529 plans also
offer an asset allocation strategy, typically based on
the age of the child or the number of years until col-
lege enrollment. For example, if your child is younger,
your plan might start off with a higher percentage of
aggressive investments in order to maximize your
growth potential. As your child gets closer to college,
the plan may take a more conservative approach to
help reduce the effects of volatility before you start
tapping into the plan.
Clearly, a 529 plan has much in common with popu-
lar investment vehicles, but it has other characteristics
of which you'll want to be aware. For one thing, the
financial aid impact: Assets in a 529 plan are consid-
ered an asset of the account owner, usually the par-
ent. Federal financial aid formulas generally expect
parents to use a smaller percentage of their assets for
college funding. Consequently, you'll want to explore
all aspects of any 529 plan, possibly in consultation
with your financial and tax advisors, before taking
action. But don't wait too long your children will
move from day care to dormitories in what seems like
a blink of an eye.

Madison County Carrier 7A

The IRS has posted on its website the newly-
revised payroll tax form that most eligible employ-
ers can use to claim the special payroll tax
exemption that applies to many new workers hired
during 2010.
Designed to encourage employers to hire and
retain new workers, the payroll tax exemption and
the related new hire retention credit were created
by the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment
(HIRE) Act signed by President Obama on March
Employers who hire unemployed workers
this year (after Feb. 3, 2010, and before Jan. 1, 2011)
may qualify for a 6.2% payroll tax incentive, in ef-
fect exempting them from the employers share of
Social Security tax on wages paid to these workers
after March 18. This reduction will have no effect
on the employee's future Social Security benefits.
The employee's 6.2% share of Social Security tax
and the employer and employee's shares of
Medicare tax still apply to all wages.

Vo un teer I

In addition, for each qualified employee re-
tained for at least a year whose wages did not sig-
nificantly decrease in the second half of the year,
businesses may claim a new hire retention credit
of up to $1,000 per worker on their income tax re-
turn. Further details on both the tax credit and the
payroll tax exemption can be found in a recently
expanded list of answers to frequently asked ques-
tions (

second calendar quarter of 2010, will be filed by

Their theme was celebration: a celebration of
good deeds and reaching out to the community. The
GFWC Madison Woman's Club members met May 13
for the last time until September.
"I want to thank you for all you've done this
year," said president Jackie Johnson. "I appreciate
your hard workk"
Putting a crimp in their budget, the Woman's
Club building needs $400 worth of repairs to replace
thne shelter over the back steps and several doors. A
new roof is also needed: the Club could use commu-
nity help with that project. Johnson said the
Woman's Club 99-year lease from the city requires
them to do repairs.
The big news from the Florida Federation of
Women's Clubs' state convention April 9-12 in Or-
lando was that Madison was represented well. "It
wras a very wonderful opportunity," said Jackie
Johnson, who was the District III Volunteer of the
Ye~ar, competing in state for thne nationals.
Recognition went to Carolyn Edwards, who won

at the district level for a lovely spiritual book of art
and Bible verses she dedicated to her husband, How-
ell. Edwards received an Honorable Mention at the
state level. Sharon French took second place in dis-
trict competition for a multi-color baby set she cro-
cheted and she received an Honorable Mention in
President Jackie Johnson said the Madison
Woman's Club wants women to be aware of breast
cancer. "Every club in the whole state decorated a
bra and brought it to the convention," she said.
Madison's submission, was chosen one of thne
top 100 to be sent around to other clubs.
Madison Woman's Club chaplain, Florida
Smith, gave the devotional on their celebration
theme. She talked about weddings and the return of

RAT (Rural Area Theatre) and two actors, Justin

Stuart Fenneman thanked Madison Woman's
Club members for help-

to purchase and make

residents in G~reenville
and Madison. The quilts

Gazlay said the recent band awards
were accumulated over a two-year period,

since the school didn't have a concert last

eighth-grade Beginning Band and MCCS

Derek Miller, a musician and parent to
sixth-grade Concert Band member, Cerid-

drum line, to keep time without a conduc-

ing. Share the happiness, whether it is
a quick gag or a funny tale.
Buy A Good Book. Reading is a
simple way to relieve stress. Reading a
good book allows a person to relax and
take brief mind vacation during a hec-
tic day. Not sure what books you like?
Try a few different kinds.
Adopt Breathing Habits. Take a
breath. Taking a moment to breathe
and simply relax will not only rejuve-
nate your mind, but also to refocus.
The centering of the body is the sim-
plest way to reach maximum relax-

By Kristin Finney

Colors are more
than a fashion state-
ment, they are also state-
ments about how you
feel and live. The color a
person is wearing shows
the mood that a person is
in, and not only affects
them but also those
around them.
Several colleges
have performed studies
on human response to
color. Some of those
findings are as follows:
Blue: This color has
been shown to relate to
tranquility and peace.
Blue is also one of the
more popular colors.
This color helps the
body produce calming
chemicals, thus making
the wearer feel calmer
and more serene. Also a
person wearing blue is
trust worthy and stable.
Red: The most in-
tense color, red emits
strength. This color
stimulates the body and
makes the heart beat
faster, this is also why
red is the color of love. A
person wearing red is
strong and doesn't mind
being noticed.
Green: Symbolizing
nature, green is a calm-
ing and refreshing color.
A person who wears
green is often more re-
laxed and at ease. Green
is a popular color for
hospitals as well due to

its relaxing qualities,
Green also symbolizes
money and success.
Yellow: This is con-
sidered to be the atten-
tion getter and cheerful
color. Yellow is the color
of optimism. However
overuse of yellow can
cause people to lose
their tempers. Yellow
also speeds metabolism.
Purple: The color of
royalty, purple shows so-
phistication. This color
has often been used to
show status and wealth.
Those who wear purple
a lot are often trying to
show off their social sta-
Brown: This is the
color of nature and
earth. This shows relia-
bility and being wise. A
person wearing brown is
often more likely to be
honest and genuine.
Black: Showing au-
thority and power, black
is the ideal color in fash-
ion. It can also imply be-
ing submissive and
when worn too much
can seem evil or care-
less. Black also makes
the wearer look skin-
White: Represent-
ing innocence and being
pure, the color white is
often worn in weddings.
White is also the color of
neutrality and cleanli-
The colors a person
wears or surrounds

themselves with are
good indications of the
type of person they are.
Also, a persons favorite
color is a
For example Madi-
son resident Amy Elli-
son's favorite color is
red. Amy is a person
who emits personal
strength, she works at
North Florida Commu-
nity College and is a sin-
gle mother raising two
daughters. Another
lover of red is Greene
Publishing employee,
Heather Bowen. She is a
strong and confident
person as well.
However, this rule
does not simply apply to
women. Eric Cortez of
Madison shares that his
favorite color is navy
blue. This is a combina-
tion of both blue and
black. Eric is interested
in joining the Air Force
after high school. Eric's
favorite color represents
his career well. It shows
that he is not only a sta-
ble and trust worthy per-
son but also interested
power and authority.

Listen to Good Music. Music is
also a way to escape the hectic world
we live in. Whether it is during a
lunch break or on the way home,1listen
to music that makes you smile. Happy
songs will cause happy feelings. Listen
to something upbeat and loud, some-
thing empowering and exciting.
Come Up With A List of Good
Things. Maybe it is a list of upcoming
vacations or parties, fond memories or
even a list of the good things about
you. A list is a physical way to say,
"hey, there is something good about
my life."
Go For A Walk. Being outdoors
in the sunshine is a great way to let
loose. Talking a walk not only helps
you feel productive, but being outside
helps you clear your mind of stress.
Smile. Smiling not only makes
you appear friendlier and more ap-
proachable, it also makes you feel
better. Smiling is a simple way to
lighten your day. Find something to
smile about no matter where you
are. Try keeping a funny picture on
your desk or a joke that makes you

and fun with your most loved people on this
planet. Now you are in full crisis mode; trying
to handle the pain with pain meds and
desperately looking in the yellow pages for a
dentist and hoping anybody will take you in to
help you. Unfortunately it's a four day wait for
an opening anywhere. You can imagine how
this scenario could easily happen and ruin the
one vacation you were going to get this year.
Don't let this happen to you. SEE YOUR
DENTIST. Get an exam, a cleaning, and fix
the little problems before they get bigger, and
more painful, and more expensive. What the
heck, think about having some fun and get your
smile whitened before that vacation. You'll be
glad you did!

The Town of Lee is applying to the Florida Department of Community Af-
fairs (DCA) for a grant under the Housing Rehabilitation category in the
amount of $600,000 under the FY2009/2010 Small Cities Community Devel-
opment Block Grant (CDBG) Program. For each activity that is proposed,
at least 51% of the funds must benefit low and moderate-income persons.
The activities, dollar amounts and estimated percentages benefit to low and
moderate-income persons for which the Town is applying are:
Activity CDBG Estimated
No. Activity Name Funds LMI Benefit

21A Administration $90,000.00 N/A
14A Sewer Hook-Ups $275,000.00 100%
14A Housing Rehabilitation/
Demolition/ Replacement $225,000.00 100%
08 Temporary Relocation $10,000.00 100%

Exact budget figures will be available no later than five (5) days prior to the
application due date; however, at no time will the CDBG budget exceed
The Town's application will request funding for CDBG Housing Rehabilita-
tion assistance to Low-to-Moderate Income (LMI) residents. The activities
include first-time sewer hookups for a minimum of 50 LMI housing units.
Although the Town has committed to addressing a minimum of 50 LMI
housing units, the goal is to include as many LMI households as possible
within the budget. The objective is to address every LMI housing unit with-
in the Town's jurisdictional limits.
As a secondary activity, the Town will provide rehabilitation, demoli-
tion/replacement (where necessary) and temporary relocation for a mini-
mum of 5 LMI housing units. All housing units will be addressed in
accordance with the current Florida Residential Building Code, relevant lo-
cal housing codes (whichever is more stringent for each code-related item)
and the Housing Assistance Plan as adopted by the Town.
As the CDBG Housing Rehabilitation program is only available to LMI
households, the national objective to benefit low-to-moderate income per-
sons will be met.
The Town of Lee plans to minimize displacement of persons as a result of
planned CDBG funded activities in the following manner:
No displacement is anticipated.
If any persons are displaced as a result of these planned activities, the Town
will assist such persons in the following manner:
In accordance with the Town's Anti-Displacement and Relocation Policy.

plication will be held at Lee Town Hall, 286 NE County Road 255, Lee, FL

of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and no more than five days before the application
due date. The application will be submitted to DCA Summer 2010. To ob-
tain additional information concerning the application and the public hear-
ing, contact Sarah Anderson, Town Manager, 286 NE County Road 255,
