The "canary in the
mine" of the American
economy is found in state
budgets which cumula-
tively are facing enor-
mous budget shortfalls ...
to the tune of $400 bilion.
In Florida, we are looking
at a $6 billion shortfall
next year and we're in
good shape compared to
many others.
I use the term short-
fall rather than deficit

health benefits so gener-
ous that it threatens to
bankrupt many states.
And the case is only
made worse with early
retirements and greater
longevity. It is not un-
common today for re-
tired workers to enjoy
more retirement years
than they spent working.
Io some cases, ressres
actually make more in
retirement than they did

, a

Everybody remembers woho woins, bTut nobody remembers wlho finishes second.

because, unlike the federal government, states can-
not print money to paper-over a budget in the red. A
state facing a negative budget has two options: bor-
row money to make up the difference or cut spend-
ing sufficiently to balance the budget. The threat
brought on by borrowing is lower bond ratings and
higher interest rates a fiscal death spiral.
The two "sinking states" which head the list of
fiscal nightmares are Illinois and California. Since
2006, the unemployment rate in "the land of Lin-
coln" has more than doubled and now exceeds 11
percent, so the state government is seeing fewer re-
ceipts from income tax, sales tax and property tax.
Facing $12 billion in red ink, the state comptroller
has been forced to stop paying bills. The state is in-
solvent. As soon as money arrives in Springfield, it
is earmarked to pay for promises that exceed capa-
bilities. There is no pad, no rainy day fund to take
up the slack.
In California, the state owes $67 billion in out-
standing bonds. How soon before Moody's drops
their bond rating, forcing the Golden State to pay
higher interest rates to borrow?
Other states, including New Jersey, Michigan
and New York aren't far behind in the race to default
first. At least the new governor of New Jersey, Chris
Christie is addressing the problem head on. He's
pulling out all the stops to cut spending and put the
state financial house in order. Meanwhile, his oppo-
nents -the usual cast of suspects: liberals, teach-
ers, unions, bureaucrats, trial lawyers, etc are
crying bloody murder.
It isn't working! The voters of New Jersey who
have been footing the bill for years through exorbi-
tant taxes are fed up with "tax and spend" business
as usual. Enough is enough they say. They voted
Christie into office last fall against long odds, and
they're cheering him on. It's tough love, but it's the
only hope left for the Garden State.
A massive problem that these states face is re-
tirement pension funding. Today, Illinois' pensions
are funded at barely 50 percent of the promises that
have been made to government workers. The pay-
roll has become so bloated and the retirement and

while working. That's upside down!
This is an area where we Floridians are rela-
tively safe. Our state workforce is modest in per
capital terms and our pension promises are not out-
landish. We can be thankful for our state's inherent
Last week, the National Governors Association
called on the federal government to provide more re-
lief to cash-strapped states to postpone draconian
cuts in state budgets and workforce layoffs. But is a
"bailout" like the governors called for the answer?
No a bailout merely prolongs the agony. The
problem is that spending is too high. As Governor
Christie is demonstrating in New Jersey, no perma-
nent solution is in sight until out-of control spend-
ing is addressed.
A bailout just papers over the problem until that
money runs out; then, we're back to square one.
Same thing with unemployment benefits. The Con-
gress keeps extending and extending without ever
addressing the fundamental problem of why unem-
ployment is so high. We even have House Speaker
Nancy Pelosi claiming that unemployment checks
are actually stimulating the economy. If that were
really the case, we should all quit work and go on the
If states like California and Illinois are bailed
out of their financial distress, the relief will only be
temporary and taxpayers in other states will end up
paying the bml. That isn't right. The states that
have created their own mess have to clean it up. Oth-
erwise, they just "pass the buck" on to the rest of us
and nothing gets fixed.
Several years ago, the James Madison Institute
looked at state budgets versus receipts over many
years and concluded that the problem isn't created
during an economic downturn when receipts are in-
sufficient to cover the budget. Instead, the problem
is created during good times when money flows into
the coffers and is spent on enriching existing pro-
grams and creating new ones. Here is a warning:
don't go wild during good times and set yourself for
up for failure when the natural economic cycle
turns negative.

You know that Bob-
by Thompson's home
run won the pennant for
the Giants, but do you
know who they beat?
Likewise, when the
gravelly-voiced an-
nouncer told us that
"Havlicek stole the ball,
Havlicek stole the ball,"
you know that the
Celtics won the game,
but do you know who
they beat?
That's the point: No-
body ever remembers
who finishes second.
Now back to our sto-
ry His name was Sham,
and he ran the kind of
race that no other three-
year-old had ever run be-
fore. Yes, he was just three
years old at the time.
Sham was born in
1970 on a horse farm just
outside of Lexington,
Kentucky. His father was
named Pretense and his
mother was named Se-

quoia. If these names
sound unusual to you,
it's because Sham was a
racehorse, and racehors-
es are sometimes given
unusual names. That ex-
plains why they had no
last names. It also ex-
plains why he was born
on a horse farm.
As the 2010 racing
season is now behind us,
this is a good time to
take a look at one of the
fastest racehorses of all
time. In fact, Sham was
the fastest racehorse
that you never heard of.
He was owned by a man
named Sigmund Som-
mer, another name that
you probably never
heard of.
Sham ran the 1973
Kentucky Derby faster
than any racehorse had
run it in the previous 99
years. He was so fast
that he was able to run
the 1 % mile race in one

minute and 59 and 4/5
seconds. By comparison,
no other horse in the
previous 99 Kentucky
Derby races had run the
race in less than two
minutes. Except one.
So Sham won the
Kentucky Derby and
went on to win the
Triple Crown, right?
No, not exactly.
You see, Sham lost
that historic 1973 Ken-
tucky Derby race, and he
lost his next two races as
well. He came in second
that day, finishing 2 % z
lengths behind perhaps
the greatest racehorse in
history the only other
horse to run the race in
less than two minutes:
Even though he
owns the second-fastest
time in Kentucky Derby
history, Sham's name re-
mains virtually anony-
mous, even in the racing

community. He was in
the right place at the
wrong time. The Triple
Crown races are open
only to three-year-old
horses, and Sham was
born the same year as the
legendary Secretariat.
Like I said, nobody
ever remembers who fin-
ishes second.
In case you're won-
dering, it was the Brook-
lyn Dodgers who the
New York Giants beat to
win the 1951 pennant,
The on-deck batter was a
struggling rookie named
Wilie Mays. Meanwhile,
it was the Philadelphia
76ers who the Boston
Celtics beat in that 1965
playoff game.

from the MCSO received information from infor-
mants regarding someone in Madison County so-
liciting Hispanics to commit a murder.
Further investigation revealed that Cruce,
along with Thompkins, were allegedly the sub-
jects who were trying to hire someone to commit
the murder. Investigators from the Madison
County Sheriff's Office requested assistance from
the Florida Department of Law Enforcement,
Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, and the Third
Circuit State Attorney's Office to assist in the

Question :
I am on vacation at Amelia Island for 10 days and my
crown came off. What can I do? Can I put it back on
with Super Glue?

I am always sorry for patients that have a surprise
dental problem while on a trip. It is my hope that there
is no pain or swelling involved. If you do have pain or
swelling you have two options I can think of. First
option is to find a local dentist or physician that would
be able to see you and help you. The second option I
suggest is to pick up the local yellow pages and find a
phone number for a pharmacy close to your location.
Then call your dentist and have him phone in a
prescription for pain pills and antibiotics to that
pharmacy. Fortunately, I can phone in prescriptions
anywhere in the United States, all I need is a phone
I hope you do not need a prescription, you only
require a temporary fix until you get home. I would
not suggest Super Glue. Just think how much worse it
could get if you missed your tooth and glued the
temporary to your tongue or even worse, your lip.
There's a vacation picture for you. Now that's funny,
I don't care who you are.
What I suggest is to temporarily glue the crown
with a dab of Effergrip denture adhesive inside the
crown. It may come back off once a day, but Effergrip
will often perform reasonably well on a temporary
basis. It is also easy for your dentist to remove when you
get home so he can cement it well when you get home.

Health Scholars Camp Teaches Studenzts about Future Careers

Gen X'ers Must Consider Needs
of Three Generations

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones

If you're a member of Generation X the age
group born between 1963 and 1981 you may
well be in the busiest time of your life. You're proba-
bly in the early to middle stages of your career, for
one thing, and if you have children, they're likely still
at home. Yet despite the hectic nature of your days,
you still have to look after the financial concerns of
your children, yourself and possibly even your par-
ents. This three-generational effort may seem chal-
lenging, but with some planning and persistence,
you can help your family make progress toward a
variety of goals.

To begin with, let's consider the needs of your chil-
dren. Obviously, you're already providing for their
Living expenses, so from an Investment point of
view, your biggest concern may be how you'll help
them pay for college. Here's a suggestion: Put time
on your side and start saving as soon as possible.
oin mi~gh wanth hoconsider opepne a 5d2v9actoeege

Saving for college is important but so is saving
for your own retirement. Consequently, you'll have
to find the right balance of resources to devote to
these two goals. To avoid shortchanging yourself,
take full advantage of your 401(k) or similar employ-
er-sponsored retirement plan. Contribute as much
as you can afford right now, and whenever you get
a raise, increase your contributions. At the very
least, put in enough to earn your employer's match-
ing contribution, if one is offered. Your 401(k) accu-
mulates on a tax-deferred basis, and your contribu-
tions are generally made with pretax dollars, so the
more you put in, the lower your taxable income.

You aren't confined to investing in a 401(k), either,
because you can also put money into a traditional
IRA, which accumulates tax deferred, or a Roth
IRA, which accumulates tax free, provided you're at
least age 59V2 When you start making withdrawals
and you've held your account at least five years.
Once you've started saving for college for your
kids and investing for your own retirement, you've
got one more generation to consider the older
one. For example, you'll need to make sure your
parents have adequate financial protection for their
health care expenses. If your parents have saved
and invested throughout their lives, they may not
need any financial help from you but that doesn't
mean you'll never be called upon to straighten out
their affairs. That's why now is the perfect time to
ask your parents some key questions: Where are
your assets located? Do you have a will? How
about a durable power of attorney? You might think
these inquiries will make you sound "selfish," but the
opposite Is true: The more you know about your
parents' financial situation and estate plans, the
bigger help you'll be to them, and to other members
of your family, if the day arrives when your parents
need some assistance.

It may not always be easy to act on behalf of three
generations but it's worth the effort.

Madison County Carrier 7A

North Florida Community College
welcomed nine health care career
hopefuls, ranging from grades sixth
through ninth, to its campus in June
for a Health Scholars Camp hosted by
NFCC's Allied Health Department and
the Big Bend Area Health Education
Center (AHEC).
The camp was made possible
through funding from AHEC, which
encourages communities and academ-
ic partnerships to improve health in
rural communities through the re-
cruitment of area youth into college
level Health Science programs and
eventually into the health care field.
NFCC's Registered Nursing stu-
dents Brittany Hobbs, Tara Richard-
son, Bridget Gamble and Ashley
Haynes along with NFCC instructors
and employees provided the young
scholars with learning opportunities,
enrichment activities and field trips
relating to the healthcare field.
The week-long camp covered

everything from seminars focusing on
tobacco prevention and CPR work-
shops to hands on exercises during
skills labs where students learned how
to utilize special medical and scientif-
ic equipment.
Students also had the opportunity
to learn about health care related is-
sues while having fun playing games
such as Health Care Bingo and work-
ing out with the Madison County Ju-
nior Auxiliary. Guest lecturers were
provided through the local ASPIRE
and SWAT Programs, as well as local
dental representatives from Madison
Dental Associates and Dr. Roderick
Shaw DMD. Each student received
certification in Basic CPR and First

The North Florida Community
College English Department recently
announced the winners of its Flash
Fiction Contest held spring term 2010.
All entries were based on one of the
following titles: "Grit," "The Brag-
gart," or "Sunday Morning." First,
second and third place winners re-
ceived gift cards to Borders Bookstore.
First place was awarded to NFCC
alumnus Erin Nicole Smith of Lloyd.
Smith is NFCC's 2006-2007 Outstand-
ing Literature Student of the Year. Re-
cently, she graduated Cum Laude from
Flagler College in St. Augustine,
where she majored in English and was
published in both the Flagler Review
and the Flagler College Literary Jour-
nal. Her submission, "Sunday Morn-
ing", weaves an intricate story of a
Catholic couple's yearning for a child,
while remaining barren.
"Sunday Morning was an experi-
ment to see how much emotion I could
evoke with as few words as possible,
said Smith. "It was inspired by T.S.
Eliot's, The Wasteland and Michael
Ondaatie's, The Cinnamon Peeler.
NFCC alumnus Jennifer Robin-
son of Perry received second place.
She was a 2007-2008 NFCC Dual En-
rollment student. Robinson is cur-
rently working toward a degree in

history, with aspirations of becoming
a historical fiction writer. Her entry,
"Grit", is about a newly married
woman who is faced with early sepa-
ration from her husband after he is
called up to serve overseas during
"The story actually started out
with the title Sunday Morning," said
Robinson. "However, as the main char-
acter Sandra began to develop I
changed the title to incorporate the
theme of courage and grit."
NFCC student Teresa Wren of
Madison took third place honors with
her short story "Grit." Wren, an NFoc
Associate in Arts alumnus, has re-
turned to NFCC for additional courses
before continuing on to a four-year col-
lege to major in astrobiology. Her fic-
tional work, "Grit" focuses on the
emotional battle of a ballerina who is
struggling with the memory of a gang
"The inspiration for my short sto-
ry came from one of my worst fears,"
said Wren. "I asked myself what I
would do if that happened to me."

Several weeks ago, the Madison County 8U All-
Star Team was featured in the paper as having gone
undefeated in the State Rookie Qualifier Tourna-
ment in Lake City, earning the team the right to rep-
resent Madison County in the State Tournament in
Palm Beach Gardens. Well, we did just that. With
the help of the community, the team raised enough
money to travel to Palm Beach Gardens and stay for
four nights and five days, while playing in the State
Tournament for 8 & under ball players. Madison
started the tournament off by facing Santa Fe on
Friday and Julington Creek on Saturday. Both of
which our team beat in five innings. However, on
Sunday, Madison ran into Sarasota. Supposedly,
they were one of the stronger teams in the tourna-
ment. In the first inning, Sarasota jumped out to a
two run lead, hitting balls just out of our reach and

moving and scoring their runners. They continued
this throughout the game, but so did we. And in the
6th and final inning of a typical 8U baseball game,
the score was tied. We played through the next in-
ning and a half, until in the bottom of the 8th with
two outs and a runner on second, one of our power
hitters ripped a base hit back up the middle, scoring
the runner on second and winning the game. That
win put us in sole possession of the #1 ranking in
our bracket. The next morning we squared off
with, Clay Co. All Stars, the #2 team from the op-
posing bracket. We won that game, again in the last
inning, after having been tied for a couple of in-
nings. And just as in the game before, one of our
power hitters steps to the plate with the winning
run on third base and lines one between the short-
stop and third baseman to end the game. This win
earned our team the right to play for the State

Championship. We took the field around midday
against the home town team, Palm Beach Gardens,
and when the dust had settled, the Madison County
8U All-Star Team ended up the #2 team in the State
of Florida for 2010. Our boys and coaches were con-
gratulated by receiving individual trophies during
the awards ceremony following the game. This is
actually an enormous accomplishment for this
community because the majority of the other base-
ball teams we played were put together from
leagues with hundreds of kids in them. Our 12
man team was picked from just 46 players.
The players and coaches would like to take this
opportunity to thank each and every person that do-
nated, encouraged and prayed for our team as we
traveled, played and returned home. It's truly a
blessing to be part of a community that supports
their youth.

Wedding7 Traditions





d Mr.
re en-
ass of

There is something
inherently mysterious
and romantic about
Asia...the mysterious
Far East. And when it
comes to weddings, the
rich diversity of Asian
cultures, traditions and
religions makes for a
wide variety of colorful
and fascinating wedding
In the land of the
rising sun
In Japan, for in-
stance, purple is the col-
or of love and a young
bride may choose to
wear an elaborately-em-
broidered silk kimono
covered in purple iris-
flowers. Weddings are
traditionally either
Shinto, during which the
natural spirits, the
kami, are called upon to
bless the couple, or it
might be a Buddhist cer-
emony during which two
strings of beads are in-
terwoven, symbolizing
the joining of two fami-
lies into one.
The dragon and the
Chinese traditions
held that the gift of a
whole roast pig given by
the groom's family to the
bride's family was an ap-
propriate engagement
gift. The traditional wed-
ding gown in China is
bright red, symbolizing
luck for the new couple.
Chinese bridal gowns
are traditionally
adorned with elaborate
golden phoenixes,
chrysanthemums and
peonies, symbols of
wealth and good fortune.
The groom traditionally

wears a black silk coat
over a robe embroidered
with a dragon, and you
can expect loud fire-
crackers at a Chinese
wedding to scare off evil
The reception that
goes on and on...
In Indonesia it is not
uncommon for more
than 1,000 guests to be
invited to the wedding
reception and it is cus-
tomary for the bride and
the groom to greet each
guest in a long receiving
line before the reception
festivities can begin.
May good fortune al-
ways be yours.
In Korea it is tradi-
tional for a fortune-
teller, known as a
kung-hap, to look into
the couple's future be-
fore they are married in
order to see if they will
live harmoniously to-
gether. A harmonious
union is very important
since the engagement
gifts alone for a tradi-
tional Korean wedding
can cost upwards of
A three-day
wedding ceremony.
An early Filipino
custom required the
groom to throw a spear
into the front steps of
his intended-bride's
home. This was a dra-
matic symbol to every-
one that she had been
spoken for. Today this
tradition has been re-
placed with a gold en-
gagement ring. Today
the majority of Filipino
weddings are Catholic,
but in days gone by a Fil-

ipino wedding lasted
three days, with cere-
monies performed each
day until the third day
when the couple joined
hands and declared their
love for each other three
times and their hands
were bound together
with a chord and the
priest declared them
The journey of a life-
time begins with milk
and water.
In India and other
countries with a Hindu
culture it is considered
bad luck for the bride
and groom to see each
Other for several days be-
fore the wedding. As
part of the marriage cer-
emony the bride's par-
ents wash the couple's
feet with milk and water
as a symbol of purifying
them for the journey of
their new life together.
As part of the ceremony
the couple holds in their
hands grains of rice and
oats and green leaves,
signifying wealth, good
health and happiness.
Many cultures, many
traditions with but a
single goal: to unite
two hearts into one.
Many Asian cul-
tures, many traditions,
but all are centered
around the basic concept
of a new beginning, a
new journey down the
path of life together,
hand in hand, filled with
love and a new commit-
ment of two hearts

/ grew up on the Gulf Coast. I know these waters. And I'm
doing everything / can to clean them up.
Fred Lemond, BP Cleanup Operations

BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf. And
that includes keeping you informed.

Searching For And Cleaning Up The Oil
Every morning, over 50 spotter planes and helicopters search for
oil off the coast, heading to areas previously mapped with satellite
imagery and infrared photography. Once oil is found, they radio
down to the 6,000 ships and boats of all sizes that are supporting
the cleanup effort and working to collect the oil. These are
thousands of local shrimping and fishing boats organized into
task forces and strike teams, plus specialized skimmers mobilized
from as far as the Netherlands.

We have recovered more than 27 million gallons of oil-water
mixture from the Gulf. Other methods have also helped remove
mi lions of additional gallons of oil from the water. We've deployed
more than 8 million feet of boom to protect beaches and sensitive
wildlife areas.

Hurricane Preparedness
In the event of a hurricane, our first priority is keeping people
safe. In coordination with the Coast Guard and local officials, we
may suspend operations temporarily but have organized to resume
them as soon as possible.

Our Responsibility
We have already spent more than $3.2 billion responding to the
spill and on the cleanup, and none of this will be paid by taxpayers.
We will work in the Gulf as long as it takes to get this done. We
may not always be perfect but we will do everything we can to
make this right.

For assistance, please call:
To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816
To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401
To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858

During the summer-
time, the New England Out-
door Center (NEOC) in
Maine offers whitewater
rafting trips and moose sa-
faris with a Registered
Maine Guide. They even
guarantee you'll see a moose
or your next tour is free.
This four-season resort
in central Maine at
Milinocket gives families a
choice of fast or relaxing -
whitewater raft rides gush-
ing down three rivers: the
Kennebec River, Penobscot
River or Dead River.

Emerald Greene of
Madison just returned from
a Maine vacation at her
brother, Harvey's house, in-
cluding an overnight stay at
the New England Outdoor
Center with daughters,
Cheltsie and Brooke. The
Outdoor Center is online at and the
phone number is tollfree:
"We had a wonderful
time visiting with the fami-

ly, sightseeing, white-water
rafting in water that was 50
degrees, and shopping, of
course," said Greene. "I
brought back with me
Amishjelly, tons of pictures,
a lot of Maine souvenirs,
and great memories."
Rafting Pioneer in Maine
Lodging at the New
England Outdoor Center
means a spectacular view of
Milinocket Lake and lovely
Mt. Katahdin and the possi-
bility of catching a glimpse
of the Northern Lights. The
entire resort, founded in
1982, is the result one cou-
ple's dream and active
brainstorming: Matt and
Wendy Polstein.
Matt Polsein is consid-
ered one of the pioneers of
Maine whitewater rafting
and both he and Wendy stil
serve as Registered Maine
Guides for whitewater raft-
ing trips at the resort. The
couple credits their chil-
dren, Max, Sam and Annie,

All three Maine rivers
nearby are controlled by wa-

awesome high-water rafting
from early May through
mid-October. The New Eng-
land Outdoor Center's on-
line whitewater rafting
schedule makes it easy to
book trips in advance. They
get calls from the southern
states from couples, wed-

groups, community and

Over on the Kennebec
River, in the heart of
Maine's whitewater coun-
try, the river flows for 12
miles of fast, deep water
every day. The upper Ken-
nebec gorge goes through
the roller coaster waves of
Big Mama and the Three
Sisters, then plunges into
the boiling Magic Falls.
From there visitors paddle
their way down the lower
river on sit-on-top kayaks to
look for wildlife, a great
memory for families and
first-time rafters, who get
wet with waves cresting
from 4-8 feet high. The
whitewater rafting experi-
ence on the Upper River is
designed for ages 10 and up.
The Lower River is designed
for ages 7 and up.

Only the brave take on
The Dead River, where the
minimum age to catch an
New England Outdoor Cen-
ter raft is 16 and up. The
longest most continuous
stretch of whitewater in
New England makes this 16-
mile stretch perfect for
thrill-seekers. Big whitewa-
ter is released only 10 times
a year on specific dates be-
tween May and October,
which are listed on the
NEOC web site. The Dead
River comes alive when
spring run-off causes flood-
ing and also in the fall when
the lakes are drawn down to
get ready for winter. During
the fall, guests enjoy the
spectacular fall foliage, but
anytime on the Dead River
is guaranteed fun.
As soon as winter revs
up again in the fall, the
Katahdin Region's two ma-
jor snowmobiling trails on
Maine's Interconnecting
Trail System come alive.
The New England Outdoor
Center doesn't offer white-
water rafting trips during
the winter, but the daily

Good tires are a family's best de-
fense for travel safety this summer. Still,
some people in Madison County let their
tire tread wear down to practically noth-
"They're just trying to get every-
thing they can get out of them," said
Ernie Blanton, who has worked for four
and a half years at Hall's Tire & Mumer
at 1064 East US 90, next to Clover Farm
in Madison. Daryl Hall is the owner of
the business.
Blanton explained that cruising on
questionable tires might cause big prob-
lems. "The tires go flat a lot easier be-
cause they don't have the thickness to
stand up to the hot pavement during the
summer; in potholes they have
blowouts, or separations in tires cause
vibrations," he said.
One method to check a tire's tread is
using the penny test. "It really works,"
he said. When inserting a penny in the
center of each tire's tread, the top of
Lincoln's head shouldn't be seen. If you
see the top of Lincoln's head, the tire
need to be replaced. Uneven wear may
also occur on interior and exterior
edges, so try the penny test there, too.

tires. The more performance tire you
get, the softer the tread is, and the quick-
er the tire wears out."
He says the "old ladies' car tires," or
touring tires for bigger cars, give the
most mileage and last longer using the
80,000 mile tires.
So, how long should a tire last? "It
depends on the driver and the type of
tire you're buying," said Blanton. "Say
you buy a 30,000 mile tire, you're proba-
bly looking at a year and a half, maybe,
then depending on how you drive, it
might be less."
Blanton said that even with the
80,000 mile tire, which could last three
and a half to four years, some people dri-
ving extensive miles on their jobs might
wear these tires out in two years.
The most affordable tires are all-sea-
son or all-weather tires; performance or
touring tires offer style for the owners of
sports cars or luxury vehicles; heavy
duty or heavy load tires are meant for
vehicles driving over rough terrain or
doing hauling.
"We offer any type tire you want
from a tractor to a skidder to semis to
your golf cart or lawnmower," said Blan-
ton. "We have one of the biggest tire se-
lections as far as to have it the next day
We can get anything and everything
you're looking for."
Hall's Tire & Mumer Center offers
new and used tires, as well as oil
changes and lubrications, tune-ups, bat-
teries, brakes, shocks and struts, CV

Club, "The idea is that you
get a lower interest than
plopping your vacation on a
credit card," said Maier.
"The repayment is 12
months, so you don't pay for
it forever and you get to do it
again next year," she said.
Vacation Loans are ap-
proved within 24 hours to
qualified borrowers at
Madison County Communi-
ty Bank. The $5,000 limit
keeps repayments afford-
able each month. "If you
slap something like that on a
credit card it eats you up,"
said Maier.
So, no matter where
Madison County families
travel this summer, advance
planning can make the trip
very affordable.

Ernie Blanton is one of the tire ex-
perts at Hall's Tires.
"The tread depth on your tire means
a lot," said Blanton. "If you don't have
very much tread depth when you hit wa-

In some cases, the owner's vanity is
involved. "People change tires all the
time to make 'em look good, or make 'em
ride higher. This does cause problems
because the cars are not designed for the
type tires they're actually putting on
them," Blanton said.
When it comes to the speed rating of
tires, Blanton said, "If you'll notice on
your speedometer, some cars register
160, some register 100. There's a very big
difference in the speed rating of these

phone number is (850) 973-3026.
For traveling this summer, "People
definitely need to watch their tires when
it's hot like this. The road is very hot and
the tires eat off very quick," Blanton
said. After experiencing a little jump or
skipping when turning hard in a park-
ing lot, he recommends immediately
checking each tire's tread with a penny.
