on Monday morning,

According to the
Georgia State Patrol, at
10:35 a.m., Aspen Green
was northbound on Geor-
gia 31 (Madison Highwvay)
when she lost control of
the SUV she was driving
because of tire failure.
Green's vehicle left

I am Pat Baker
Raines and I amn a candi-
date for Coun~ty Commis-
sioner in District 2.
I am married and
have three grown sons,
seven grandchildren and
five great-grandchil- 4't
dren,
I was raised in Cher- \
ry Lake and have worked
most of my adult life in

ated from MHS and at-
tended FSU.
I believe that I am qualified to be your county
connogostite to bring businesses to our county
that will have jobs for our people. I will also work to
improve our roads and try to find a way, if possible,
to help make our taxes more reasonable. I know as
one person I cannot do this by myself but I hope, if
elected, my input can make a difference. Some-
times, a woman's view of things can change things
and my family and co-workers can tell you I ask a
lot of questions and want to know why, and get all
the answers before I amn satisfied enough, to make a
decision.
I know without you citizens there would be no
county and I will always remember who put me in
office and who I am working for...Our county is dy-
ing and wve need to save it.
Again, I think I am qualified to be your county
commissioner and I certainly will appreciate your
vote on August 24.

man, would many nights
keep our three children
while we worked into the
wee hours, sometimes
finishing the paper just
in time to take it to press.
And, as babies, our
children spent many
nights in boxes tucked
under the work tables
while we worked all
night long. We also have
to thank Mrs. Retha
Kirkland, and Ethel
Thomas, who also gave
much love and support
to us as they, too,
watched over Harvey,
William, and Emerald.
We want to thank
each and every one of
you for your many years
of love, support, under-
standing, help, encour-
agement, graciousness,
and friendship.
We love you, and
hope the next 46 years
will be just as much fun.
Call us if we can
ever help you in any way.
We love you; we love our
family; we love the Unit-
ed States of America; we
love Florida; and, we
love Madison County.
Thank you, one and
all, for your love, your
support, your kindness-
es to our family and our
newspapers, and most of
all, for being you!!!!
Please call if we may
ever be of service to you,
or yours!!!

2A Madison County Carrier


Wednesday, August 4, 2010


we needed, as close as he
could to the expensive
machines others were
using. That saved us
money, that we didn't
have, and actually be-
came interesting to oth-
er newspaper owners,
who would come to our
office to see our equip-
ment, and then want
Tommy to help them
build some of their own
as well. They were im-
pressed with his ability
to "build" what they
were "buying."
Our children grew
up in the media world,
and they, too, have had
many wonderful memo-
ries growing up at the
newspaper office. As
small children, if they
got sleepy, we would put
their heads on a stack of
newspapers, and they
would go to sleep.
Harvey, William and
Emerald have all been
with us through the
years as we've owned
five newspapers (The
Carrier; the Mayo Free
Press, the Branford
News, the White Springs
Leader; the Madison En-
terprise Recorder), and
other publications,
which have all been a
part of our newspaper's
history. For that, we are
most grateful,
Now, our grandchil-
dren have helped us at
one time or another. All
11 grandchildren ---
Thomas, Noland, Kelli,
Hunter, Joshua and Jade
(Harvey's children);
Daniel, Forest, and
Matthew (all William's
children); and Cheltsie
and Brooke, (Emerald's
girls), have been right
there with us at one time
or another, helping to get
the newspapers on the
street. We love the fact
that we have a business
our family can all partic-
ipate in, if they desire.
I will just skip over
the many, many years in-
between 1964 and now,
but the stories are won-
derful, interesting,
amusing, and delightful.
The people we have met
during our lifetime in
the news business is a
story all its own. We have
met two Presidents of
the United States of
America, (George Bush,
Sr., and Gerald Ford);
met people like Erma
Bombeck (my favorite). I
picked her brain about
her humorus column.
We have talked one-on-
one with geniuses like
Henry Kissinger; be-
came good friends with
numerous other news
journalists, including Al
Neuharth (founder of
the USA TODAYnewspa-
per); met famous people
like Stephen Spielberg;
been written up by vari-
ous publications, includ-
ing the American Profile,
the Tallahassee Democ-
rat, the Gainesville Sun,
the Valdosta Times, and
others.
We have had the
pleasure of serving as
the President and First
Lady of the Florida
Press Association; as Po-
tentate and First Lady of
the Marzuq Shrine Cen-
ter; been presidents (and
founder of a few) many
local organizations, such
as the Madison County
Chamber of Commerce;
the Madison Shrine
Club; the Madison Ju-
nior woman's Club; the
Jaycees of Madison
County; and many more,
too numerous to name.
But the wonderful
employees who have
worked with us and


"made us what we are to-
day" are the ones we ap-


preciate the most and
have been the most re-
warding in our lifetime.
We love Madison
County, and we thank
each and every one of
you who have been gra-
cious to us, kind to us,
enjoyed our newspapers,
and who have helped us
become what we are to-
day; watched us grow up
here, and grow as news
journalists in the jour-
nalist world.
Two years ago, on
August 6, 2008, we put to-
gether a "Happy 44th
Birthday" edition, and
we hope you enjoyed it.
We highlighted various
employees early in our
career who helped us
"make it" back then, and
become "what we are to-
day." Just a few include:
Annette Sircy; Elizabeth
Almand; Stan and Faith
Ezell; Sue Matthews;
Freddy and Joyce
Howard; Christine
Zavasky; Dale and Boni-
ta Thigpen; and so many
more there is not space
to write all the names of
all the employees
through the years that
we do appreciate so very
much.
Today, we have a fine
staff at the office who
work hard to continue
the legacy of both news-
papers. They include
Emerald, Jacob, Heather,
Marianne, Stephen, Dee,
Forest, Jeanette,
Dorothy, Kimberly,
Fredy, Laura, Sheree,
Kristin, Cheltsie, and
Brooke,
We appreciate the
Merchant family who


owned the Enterprise-
Recorder for many years,
and who sold it to us
when they were ready to
retire.
We received a lovely
note from Curry Mer-
chant last year, who told
us he had come to Madi-
son to visit a day or so,
but we missed seeing
him. How I would love to
"pick his brain" today on
how their newspaper
was run many years ago
before the years we be-
gan. The Merchant men
were two of the most
brilliant men we have
ever met in our lives, and
we salute them today for
all they did for Florida
journalism in the years
before we became "one of
them."
We planned and in-
vited all of you one year
to the grand re-opening
of the 1Madison Enter-
prise-Recorder building
on Shelby Street, across
from the courthouse, and
we know many of you all
came by to see where the
Merchants once ran the
Enterprise-Recorder for
many, many years. It is
now being rented by
Owens Propane, Inc.
We could never
thank everyone who has
helped us with our news-
papers these many, many
years, but to start with,
our parents deserve a lot
of credit. Without them,
The Husband and I could
never, ever have been
able to work the hours
we did back then. Our
parents, Harvey and
Cora Lee Greene, and
Buford and Lucile Sel-


Where have the
years gone?
It seems like just yes-
terday that The Husband
and I opened our first
newspaper, the Madison
County Carrier, on Au-
gust 5, 1964.
We were just 24
years old at the time, and
didn't know one thing
about journalism, and as
I've told readers before,
we didn't know what in
the world we were doing,
The two of us had
graduated in 1957 from
Madison High School,
and had been dating four
years during our high
school years, beginning
in the ninth grade, at the
age of 15. We were actu-
ally dating before either
of us could drive, so our
dating years were spent
walking to the Swan
Theater, and later to the
Woodard Theater, or
walking to the school
dances from my home,
which was just across
the street from MHS.
As I mentioned, we
graduated from MHS in
the Class of 1957, which
was a wonderful time to
grow up in. Those years
were the beginning of
rock and roll, and we re-
member jitterbugging to
the first Elvis Presley
songs released.
I went to the Univer-
sity of Florida to college,
and The Husband went
to South Georgia Junior
College, where he played
football under the Coach
there, none other than
the infamous Bobby
Bowden. He also ran
track there, where he
won first place in the
state 100 yd. dash, and
his track coach was
Vince Gibson, who later
was the FSU track coach.
The Husband had
been logging for a few
years with his father and
family when we became
engaged, and he and I got
married on his birthday,
October 28, 1962. We had
known for many years
we would one day get
married. We wanted,
first, to finish college,
and then be ready to go
into a business of our
own. We just didn't
know "what" kind of
business, though, at the
time.
After finishing col-
lege at the University of
Florida in 1961, with a
BA degree in English,
Speech, and Journalism,
I had returned home to
teach school. I taught
seventh, eighth, and
ninth grade English, and
also taught a class in
Speech at Madison High
School, the same school
had just graduated from
in 1957. My principal
that year was the late Wi-
ley Sirmon, a man who
taught me a lot about be-
ing a school teacher, and
a man I highly regarded
as a principal. Just a few
of my students during
those years were Martha
Rowe Beggs, Tommy
Bishop, Frankie Argen-
bright, Wetzel Blair,
Frances and Rickey
Ginn, Paula and Walter
Jarvis and so many more
that I just don't have the
space to name them all,
but believe me, I remem-
ber every one of them
with affection.


The Husband had
gone to a few colleges
like he was taking a cen-
sus, first attending Mer-
cer University in Macon,
Ga.; then South Georgia
Junior College, and then
he came back to Madi-
son, where he was in the
first class at North Flori-
da Junior College. He
was elected the first
Vice-President of the
Student Body that year,
and had a "real good
time" at the junior col-
lege. He founded a fra-
ternity there whose
whole existence was to
"have fun."
Get the picture?
He had a "real good
time" those many years,
but alas, no degree.
We had a beautiful
wedding October 28,
1962, at the "new" First
Baptist Church in Madi-
son. We were the first
couple to be married at
the "new" church, and
we have many memories
we will never forget,
(like the groomsmen kid-
napping me so The Hus-
band would tell them
where he had hidden the
car), but no such luck.
His "friends" finally re-
turned me two hours lat-
er, after riding around all
over the county, and The
Husband and I left for a
great honeymoon in the
mountains, visiting
many of my father's fam-
ily in north Georgia.
I had taught school
at Madison High School
my first year out of col-
lege, while The Husband
went into the service to
help serve his country.
And, upon our return, I
taught school at Madison
High School a couple of
years, during which time
we got married, and I lat-
er taught at Greenville
High School. The Hus-
band continued to farm
and work in the deep
woods logging with his
family, until l963, when a
log fell on his leg and he
said to me, "I don't want
to log anymore. What
else can I do?"
I reminded him that
he had never finished
college, but, that I could
go back to teaching but,
I had no ideas for his ca-
reer change.
He awoke me the
next morning at 3 a.m.,
and said, "Let's open a
newspaper. I've been up
all night long, making a
list of what I could do,
and all of them include
office supplies and news-
paper work."
I reminded him he
couldn't spell. He quick-
ly said to me, "You spell,
and I'll figure, and we'll
just make a good team."
Thus, we launched
our maiden voyage of
the Madison County Car-
rier. (Tommy's "friends"
accused him of trying to
spell "Courier," and it
came out "Carrier," but
that's what we made it
anyway.) The first carri-
er was published on Au-
gust 5, 1964, and the rest
is history
We didn't have much
money, so Tommy and I
would visit other news-
papers in the area, and
watch how they laid out
a newspaper, and then he
would come back home
and "hand-make" what

counted was abysmal.
~You might ask why a
serviceman votes by ab-
sentee ballot? Seventy
years ago, the Soldiers
and Sailors Relief Act
recognized that because
of frequent moves, it
was impractical and un-
fair to ask a serviceman
to change his legal resi-
dence every time he or
she changes station.
That act permits a mili-
tary member to keep a
legal residence of his or
her choosing through-
out their period of ser-
vice.
I was born and
raised in the State of
Florida. When Iturned
21, I established Florida
as my legal state of resi-
dence even though I was
an Air Force cadet in
Colorado. One of the ac-
tions I took was to regis-
ter to vote in my home
county (Alachnua). Over
the next 28 years and 12
assignments, including
three overseas, I main-
tained Florida as my le-
gal residence and I voted
in every election that I
can remember.
Whether or not my
ballot wias actually
counted, I can't tell you.
Other military men
and women, from, differ-
ent parts of the country
claim Florida as their
residence when they
were assigned to bases
in Florida such as the
naval installations in
Jacksonville and Pen-
sacola and Air Force


seas, to participate in
.l~s elections and ensure
i their vote is counted*
SThis seems like a no-
brainer if anyone
should have the right to
vote and have their bal-
*lot counted, it should be
the men and women
serving overseas to pro-
tect our freedoms.
But all is not well
.with MOVE. A report
released last week indi-
Scated that six states
(Washington, Hawaii,
~1Delaware, Maryland,
*-New York, and Alaska)
have requested waivers
from the Justice Depart-
ment to avoid require-
ments of the MOVE: Act.
Specifically, thne states do
not want to comply with
the requirement to mail
mortgage ballots to overseas mili-
tary voters at least 45
Lalprac- days before the election
so they can return their
Colson ballots in time to be
counted. This is anim-
Depart- portant provision be-
cause mail can be slow,
-mort- particularly in overseas
war zones.
repeat Guidan~ce from the
Attorney General Eric
'eat in- Holder is that the Oba-
ma Administration does
nue vs. not want to sue the
states over this matter
nue vs. and is willing to waive
the rule if requested.
,f Rev- I have some experi-
ence in this matter. In
nue vs. the late 1980s when I was
still on. active duty in the
Air Force, my Father put
me incontact with afel-
low in Washington that
was trying to improve
the ability of military
ns absentee voters to have
their ballots counted. At
tion: that time, the success


bases in Tampa, Fort
Walton Beach and Pana-
ma City. For a variety of
reasons, the Sunshine
State is a popular place
... but you already know
that.
In the 2000 Florida
recount, the Gore cam-
paign, to their everlast-
ing shame, sought to
block military absentee
ballots, all over the state
but most notably in
Jacksonville and Pen-
sacola. They were suC-
cessful in getting
hundreds of ballots
thrown out on a variety
of technicalities, includ-
ing no postal marks and
illegible signatures.
This was a terrible
black mark on the De-
mocrat Party and left a
bitter taste in the mouth
of those of us who have
worn our nation's uni
form. It was under-
handed and shameful.
Now, it would ap-
pear that the Obama Ad-
m~inistration is seeking
to do something similar.
The intent of Congress
is that military mem-
bers and spouses receive
their absentee ballot in
sufficient time to cast
their vote and mail it
back to their home state
so that it can be count-
ed. This is especially
important for those
serving overseas where
the mail moves much
slower. Apparently, At-
torney General Holder
isn't too interested in
seeing that the states fol-
low the law.
That's not right.

Oldest Twins

Floree recalled, "We would pick a bucket of
blackberries and walk a half mile to the rolling
store to sell them. We would take that money and
go buy the stuff to make ice cream or just ice."
Then the family moved to Madison. They re-
call little difference in the wiay they lived after
moving here. "Our father didn't know much
about farming, so he was a truck farmer."
Floree married Otis Williams and had three
children. Two are still living: Stanley Williams
and Linda Williams Bass. Her other son, Kenny
Williams, is deceased. Flarrie married Walden
Richardson and they had two children: Walden
Leroy, Jr. and Wanda Richardson Henderson,
Flarrie has five grandchildren and 10 great-
grandchildren. F'loree has six grandchildren
and 11 great-grandchildren. They are the daugh-
ters of the late Mr. and Mrs. W.M. Brantley and
the granddaughters of Mr. and Mrs. Bart McCul-
lough of Madison County
Floree recalled that people used to ask them
hnow many sisters they hnad and they would re-
spond, "Two. We never realized that we only had
one sister because we were 'wombmates,' like
Mary Ellen Greene refers to herself and her
twin brother, Wiley."
Though they looked exactly alike, the sisters
are quite different. Floree was outgoing and al-
ways up for an adventure. Flarrie describes her-
self as the tag-along. "To this day, Floree will go
out of town, and I will say 'Okay. I'm going to
tag-along. "
Both sisters spent their lives as farmers and
housewives.
As for a story of using their special trait to
trick someone, Floree stated, "My husband had
just came home and I was living with Flarrie at
the time. We decided to try to trick him. So Flar-
rie went outside and met him. He talked to her
and held her hand. He didn't realize it was her
until he was inside and saw me."
Many have! heard stories of twins feeling
each other's pain or being able to know what the
other is thinking. Flarrie shared a story, "I re-
member Floree got in a wreck and wias hurt re-
ally bad. She was on the way to my house, so I
heard the wreck. I knew it was her the minute I
heard the crash. The wreck left Floree unable to
walk for a while. Then not too long after the
wreck, I got heel spurs so bad that I couldn't
walk, So, we both couldn't walk at the same
time. "
In January 2009, Floree slipped into a coma.
She said that as she went into the coma, instead
of calling her daughter's name, she kept saying,
"Twin sister. Twin sister "
The sisters also remembered numerous
times calling each other on Sunday afternoons
and talking about cakes or pies that they baked.
More times than they can count, the sisters had
made the same pie or cake, without planning to.
Also, several times one sister hnas gone to thne
store and bought a pair of shoes. The next day
the other sister would buy the same pair with-
out knowiing that the other had bought them al_
ready.
Flarrie explained, "Having a twin is like
having someone who knows everything about
you. It's like one of us will start talking," Floree
then adds, "and the other will finish the sen-
tence. "
Flarrie and Floree have a request for thne
community. They would like to know if they are
the oldest twins in Madison County. If you have
any information, K~ristin F'inney can be reached

have not been approached, why not?

7. Have the board and/or administration
reached out to other similar institutions (i.e. Doctor's
Memorial Hospital in Perry, Florida and Gads~den
County Hospital) to get input on some of the issues
they have faced upon building new facilities or reno-
cating currentfacilities. It is our understanding that
both of these hospitals have now affiliated with larg-
er organizations after initially operating themselves
for several years.

8. Does the hospital have any plans to clean up
the location of the new facility in the interim before
construction begins?

July 29, 2010



Mlr. Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing Company

Dear Jacob,

Attached are the answers to your questionnaire.
Thank you for asking these questions they not only
help you but also help keep focus on important parts
of the process of building a new hospital.

Ve~ry soon now, we expect to hear from? thne
USDA, After receiving a positive answer, hospital
construction design plans will immediately be put
into action. It's been a long time coming for the citi-
zens of Madison County. But really even before con-
struction is finished, MCMH will be developing
better and better patient care. We have been working
on swing-bed improvements continuously for the
past three years and things have developed very
well; in September Four Freedom's Health Services
added TOC services to thne services we offer; and
then on April 27th this year, we implemented an en-
doscopy program to address the high incidence of
colorectal cancer in Madison County. And today,
there is a focus on developing a very specialized lev-
el of wound care,

As the new building is being built, improve-
ments will become more and more evident, so that
when the new facility is opened, the people in Madi-
son County wil have every reason to be quite proud
of their new hospital and the great good it does for
the community.

Thank you again for allowing me the opportuni-
ty to address your questions. And please also re-
member that Vicki Howerton is scheduling small
intimate talks with small groups of people from
around the community to keep them apprised of the
progress and improve-
ments as we work to-
ward a new replacement
hospital building. Please
feel free to come to any
that are convenient for
gic and you. Vicki can be
reached at 850-973-6030
and I am at 850-253-1971.

1. 99% of the meet-
ings are held in a public
facility the hospital.
MCMH is a hospital dis-
trict hospital, a subunit


of state government. Also, holding the meetings at
the hospital gives the public a greater "closeness"
and understanding of the context of the subject
matter to be discussed. However, the Madison Coun-
ty Community Bank has been kind enough to lend
MCMH a meeting room for a few days when hospi-
tal education programs have caused hospital sched-
uling diffculties.
The meetings are purposely designed to be
small gatherings of 2-12 people. This puts the meet-
ings in less of a presentation format and more into
the format of a personal conversation. This smaller
format is more intimate and allows very detailed
and personalized information to be given and al-
lo~ws for more input to be received, and is less influ-
enced by the time on the clock. Periodic updates
have also been given at the County Commission and
one update was given at the City Commission along
with an invitation for the public to attend one of
these small meetings. These are very public venues.
Additional updates are planned for the future.

2. This information will be given to you as soon
as our CFO returns to Madison, in about one week.
Thank you for your patience.

3. The financial forecast is a public document,
available upon written request, at the State de-
signed cost per copied page. However, the Board
will only build a hospital of the size that the feasi-
bility study results support,

4. This information will be given to you as soon
as our CFO returns to Madison, in about one week.
Thank you for your patience.

5. Because MCMH is not the custodian of these
records nor the tax money, I ask that you request
that information from Tim Sanders, Clerk of Court
for Madison County, who is the custodian of the
records and tax money. M/y recollection is that no
MCMH operating funds have been spent on this pro-
ject.

6. Yes, MCMH has approached other healthcare
providers to explore ways to work in conjunction
with them. There are many different levels if coop-
eration that are possible, the most important is a
clinical level with the development of seamless med-
ical care between two facilities (or more than two fa-
cilities). This is already in place for swing-bed
program. Endoscopy has also benefited from train-
ing at three other facilities.

The MCMH administrator also visited with the
CEOs of two TMH managed hospitals to ascertain
the benefit they received from a management agree-
ment.

Both of these hospitals are vastly different from.
each other and from MCMH and their experiences
can not be adequately compared one to another. It is
unlikely that MCMH would duplicate either of their
experiences. Over the past two years, the MCMH
board has revisited the discussion and updated their
information as a way to stay informed and make
strategic decisions based on up-to-date information.

7. Doctors Memorial Hospital at Bonifay, FL has
been contacted and visited twice. The hospital at
Homerville, GA has also been contacted and visited
once; and the Gadsden County facility was contact-
ed via telephone. Prior to that, the MCMH adminis-
trator visited with the consultant working on that
project at Gadsden, and also spoke with the TMH ad-
ministrator who was working with the Gadsden
Hospital at that time. These conversation took place
over the course of two years or so.

A lot of information. has been gathered and I
feel that whatever course the MCMH board chooses
to take is done with considerable due diligence and
responsibility to the citizens of Madison County.

8. Yes. One problem is that when several small
buildings were moved from the old Excel property,
considerable concrete blocks and other rubble was
left on the site. These items can damage a bush hog.
Ways to approach this problem are being considered
now. A way to clean up thne site will be found soon.

Greene Publishing, lInc.
Bishop McMiller is a registered respirato-
ry therapist whose dream came true. In 1995,
Mlc~iller mentally mapped his dream to devel-
op a sleep lab to help patients get the best pos-
sible sleep. The following year, he and his wife,
Pecolar, moved with their five children to
Madison,
In Dec. 2006, Duramed Medical Services be-
camee a reality at 289 SW Range Avenue, on the
second floor. On June 18 of this year, the com-
pany was accredited by The Joint Commission,
which also accredits hospitals. "I'm. happy as a
lark," said M\c~niller The accreditation is valid
for 39 nzmonts.
McMiller estimates he worked in the respi-
ratory therapy field for over 40 years. "I want-
ed to do sleep studies," he decided. "It was a
change of pace for me." He earned a Bachelor
of Science degree in Respiratory Therapy from
the University of Central Florida in Orlando,
and received training on how to conduct sleep
studies with the assistance of his former em-
ployer, Madison County Memorial Hospital.
The three supervisors overseeing Du-
ramed Medical Services' sleep studies work
closely with McMiller to customize a wellness
plan: locally, Dr. Julie Schindler oversees
records, and Jacksonville sleep medicine spe-
cialists, Dr. Andrew Namen and Dr. John Gri-
gas, interpret the study results and examine
them for quality. Also advising McMiller is lab
consultant, Carolyn Ivey, a registered RPSGT
sleep technologist at North Florida Regional
Hospital in Gainesville. McMiller's wife, Peco-
lar, functions as his administrative assistant.
"W~e are performing any-where from four to
five sleep studies a -week on the average,"
McMiller said. Depending on the sleep study,
he personally arrives bet-ween 11:30 p.m. and
12:00 a.m. and leaves somewhere between 2-4
a.m. or later. After McMiller tests sleep for a
period of six hours, he said some people, when
awakened, say, "This is the best sleep I ever
had why did you wake me? I was sleeping so
good! "
McMiller conducts a regular sleep study,
which is called polysomnography. This study
gives thne physician a diagnostic tool to find the
cause of sleep problems. Another type of sleep
study, CPAP titration, can be a good program
as patients adapt to it, he said. The tongue and
other soft tissue gets flaccid during sleep and
may cut off a person's air supply. In some in-
stances, a person may not be able to tolerate
the CPAP titration pressurization used to keep
airways open during sleep.
He commented that those who succeed in
treatment may no longer have headaches, they
feel better physically, and they often overcome


anger management problems, which can be
closely intertwined with poor sleep. Research
into sleeplessness has linked auto accidents, a
greater risk for health problems and increased
pain to insufficient sleep.
Insomnia is one of the most common sleep
disorders, and it involves more than just hav-


other medical conditions, such as COPD, a pul-
monary disorder, diabetes, hypertension, obe-
sity and apneas.
McMiller says sleep deprivation is a major
topic, one that truck drivers and shift workers
should keep in mind, since the results can be
tragic. He said someday truck drivers may be
required to undergo sleep studies to prevent
accidents, due to their long hours of driving.
Snoring is often joked about in comedy
sketches, and at least once in awhile, 30-50 per-
cent of the population snores, even if they
don't realize it. Snoring is not usually a prob-
lem, except for the bed partner who opts for
the couch, he said. However, heavy snoring
could stem from a disorder called obstructive
sleep apnea, in which the tongue and other soft
tissues partially or completely block the pa-
tient's airway. They may stop breathing, strug-
gle to recover, and repeat the process over and
over again in one night.
McMiller asks patients to answer questions
on a form called the Epworth Sleepiness Scale,
developed by Dr. Murray Johns in 1990, to get a
sense of their sleep patterns. Most people can
identify with the ten questions, each of which
count for one point, such as, "If you're sitting
and reading, would you dose off ... never,
slight, moderate, or a high chance?" Those who
score ten points are candidates for a sleep
study to explore what is causing their sleep
deficits.
Sandman Brings Dreams
To encourage the sandman to bring sweet
dreams, McMiller suggests, "I think you
should have a good, sturdy mattress, one that's
comfortable for you, and just turn your house
into a home, a place where you enjoy coming to
at night."
MlcMiller serves as the associate pastor of
Poplar Springs Missionary Baptist Church in
Jasper, under the auspices of senor pastor, J.T.
Simon. He said that faith helps people to feel
comfortable in unusual situations, such as a
sleep study, "It creates a very peaceful atmos-
phere. You can feel that peace here."
McMiller sums up his dream job at Du-
ramled Mledical Services sleep lab in Mladison:
"It's a joy to turn people's lives around," he
said.
Thne phone number for further information
is (850) 973-8116.

ing trouble falling asleep. It could be a problem
staying asleep, or waking up too early in the
morning, or feeling like one hasn't slept at all.
"If you don't go through. thne different sleep
stages, you may have headaches or daytime
sleepiness," said McMiller. "Arousals" are
what cause people to wake up, and those events
are noted during sleep studies as anything that
interferes with the sleep period.

For Whom Are You Investing?

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones

You may, on occasion, ask yourself why you are invest-
ing. Why go through the fluctuations of the financial mar-
kets, the worry over interest rate movements, the fears of
today and the uncertainties of tomorrow?
To answer this question, you may need to ask yourself
one more: For whom am I investing? Consider the follow-

*You're investing for yourself. It sounds selfish, but
it's not. You may be investing in your 401(k), IRA and
Other investment accounts so that you can enjoy a com-
fortable retirement lifestyle after working your entire adult
life. But you're also investing so that you can become
financially independent free of worries that you'll
become a burden to your grown children or other family
members. And given the real possibility of spending two,
or even three, decades in an active retirement, it's imper
ative that you put as much as you can possibly afford into
those investment vehicles that can help you pursue your
financial independence.
*You're investing for your family. If you have children
or grandchildren, you may well want to help them pay for
college. And, as you know, college has gotten much more
expensive in recent years, so you'll need to save and
invest from the time your children are very young, and
you'll need to choose the right investment accounts, such
as a 529 college savings plan or a Coverdell Education
Savings Account. But you'll also need to think about other
family members, too. Have you built up enough in your
retirement accounts so that the money would be suffi-
clent to support your surviving spouse should anything
happen to you? Will you have enough financial resources
to help support your elderly parents should they require
assistance? And will you be able to leave the type of lega-
cy you desire? As you can see, when you're investing for
your family, you've got a lot to consider.
* You're investing for your beliefs. Throughout your
working years, you may try to give as much money as you
can to those charitable organizations whose work you
support. Yet you may wish you could do even more. And
eventually, you may be able to do more. For example, if
you hold an investment for many years and then sell it,
you'II have to pay capital gains taxes on any increase in
value and the capital gains tax rate of the future may
not be as low as it has been over the past several years.
But if you were to give the appreciated asset to a charita-
ble organization, you could avoid paying the capital gains
tax, because the organization would be the one that
eventually sold the asset. Plus, you might even get a cur-
rent income tax break for your contribution. You might
also want to include charitable organizations in your
estate plans, after consulting with your attorney or other
estate tax advisor.

As you can see, you've got some "key constituencies"
counting on you. By keeping them in mind, you should
have the motivation you need to overlook the day-to-day
ups and downs of investing while you keep your focus
on your important long-term goals.

Question:
Why does my teenage son have all these cavities?
I know he brushes his teeth. Does he have soft
teeth or something?

An swer* *
Interesting thing about the practice of dentistry is
that believe it or not tooth decay can be telling. I
have fun with patients pretending that I am
clairvoyant. I can tell a lot about patients habits
from the pattern of tooth decay in their mouth.
Especially when there are multiple cavities at one
time. I am not clairvoyant at all and I have never
had a winning lottery ticket.

In teenagers I frequently see multiple cavities
along the gumline of teeth. This is a give away of
a high sugar diet. Sometimes candy, but more
often than not it is sipping on soda or sports drns
all day long. Put that decay evidence along with
a social history of travel ball and the pattern is
obvious. In this heat, he is sipping on Gatorade,
sitting in a dugout, two games a day, and the
decay starts. Gatorade is a great beverage and has
many benefits. But if your son has a tooth decay
problem he may be drinking excessive amounts.
Drink water in the dugout and save the Gatorade
for the Victory celebration after the game.

On January 1, 1960, a young man named Wes Kelley
asked a young lady named Janice Robinson out on their
first date. They listened to "Blue Christmas" in Wes' 1956
blue and white Fiord. W~es gave Janice an engagement
rmng on April l, 1960, and they were married on August
7th of that same year at the First Baptist Church in Lee.
Since their marriage, Janice and Wes have lived,
worked and been a part of Madison County. Wes retired
as Madison County Tax Collector in 2004. Prior to that
time, he was manager of the local Setzer's and Food Fair
grocery stores. Janice retired in 2004 after working in
various local and state positions with the State of Flori-
da.
They are very proud of their fam~ily. One of their
happiest moments was receiving the "Family of thne
Yetar" award for 1980-81 from the Madison Woman's Club,
Their son, Greg, wife Chris, and daughters Candace,
Marlee and Logan, live in Spring Creek and their daugh-
ter, Becky, husband Steve and son, Robbie, live in Shali-
mar. They all wish "Grandma and Pop" a happy 50th
anniversary.
Wes and Janice enjoy gardening, golfmng, attending
the grandchildren's sports activities and fishing in
Suwannee. They still enjoy listening to "Blue Christ-
mas," but the blue and white Ford has long since been re-
tired.
Janice and Wes plan to celebrate their anniversary

around media production, design and development.
"We've served the educational needs of our dis-

necessary to make sure that we continue to meet
those needs for the next 50 years," said NFCC Presi-
dent John Grosskopf. "The world changes, the econo-

sure our students are ready for those changes."
Other exciting course additions this fall include
Humanities Film, Introduction to College composi-

Everything Google, Creative writing and Fundamen-

courses returning this fall are American G~overn-
ment, Short Story and Beginning Computers. Taught
by exceptional instructors, these courses will add to
NFCC's already vast course and program offerings.
"These new additions to our curriculum should
provide students with interesting new options as well.
as options that will help them in pursuing their edu-

North Florida Community College is constantly
evolving and growing to meet the needs and demands
of students and the community So, as NFCC's fall
term approaches, it's no surprise there's new offer-

Computer Animation, to upcoming additions of a
Hip Hop in American Culture class and an Associate
in Science degree in digital media, NF'CC is reshap-

"NFCC has been actively working on revitalizing
and updating its curriculum," said Dr. Sharon Erle,
NFCC Dean of Academic Affairs. "We have some ex-
citing new courses, have some revitalized previously
offered courses, and are adding a new degree we are
very excited about."
The college is planning to offer a new Digital Mle-

that includes an Associate in Science degree option
as well as shorter college credit certificate tracks.
The shorter certificate tracks, 15-18 credit hours
each, provide quick training in four separate areas -
authoring, production, instructional technology, pre-

A.S. degree. The program will teach students to inte-

Centered on require-

(Senate Bill 1908) and
Section 1008.30(3) of the
Florida Statutes, the
NFCC "Mlathematics for

area high schools and
NFCC can work together
to help better prepare lo-
cal high school students
for college level work, es-

math, while meeting
mandatory expectations
set forth by the state.
Leading the work-

grade. Students who pass
by meeting or exceeding
the minimum test scores
are eligible for enroll-

two years without retest-


ing. Students who do not

Five members of
thne Madison County
High School Family, Ca-
reer and Community
Leaders of America
(FCCLA) chapter repre-
sented Florida at the
National Leadership
Meeting in Chicago, Ill.
Because of its historical
value as the location of
the first national confer-


ty to develop leadership
skills and learn about
national concerns that
the organization would
address in the upcom-
ing year. Brigette Blan-
ton, a junior at MCHS
and State Vice President
of Recreation, was busy
attending workshops
and business, to gain
leadership skills that


Smith, represented not
only thne chapter but the
state in competitive
events. Chelsea Han-
ners received a silver
medal for her effort in

She displayed a beauti-
ful sundress ensemble
of her own creation in a
wvindowi display that
showcased the various


Early Childhood Educa-
tion skills, but their
work with children be-
low the age of five to en-
hance a focus on
learning and reading.
This earned them a
gold medal. Keeley
Smith, a freshman at
MCHS, tried to Cover
H-er Tracks in an envi-
ronmental project that
had her measuring and
assessing hner family's
carbon footprint. H~er
goal was simple: make it
smaller. Her research
taught her the role each
person plays in the over-
all health of the envi-


ronment and how small
things can, make a big
difference. She went on
to share her findings
with fellow MCHS stu-
dents and create ways
the school could impact
a change for the better.
She was awarded a sil-
ver medal for her hard
work.
While in Chicago,
the group checked out
many of the beautiful
sites the city has to offer.
Fireworks at Navy Pier
on the 4th, the topof the
Willis Tower, the Field
Museum, and a trip to
the Bean were part of


the many activities the
students participated
in.
These students and
their advisor would like
to thank the parents,
teachers, administra-
tors, local school board
officials, and local busi-
nesses that made this
opportunity possible.
Because of your sup-
port and gifts, these stu-
dents have experienced
a once-in-a-life time op-
portunity.
Of course, all of the
students came back eye-
ing next year's confer-
ence in Anaheim, Calif.

/ grew up on the Gulf Coast. I know these waters. And l'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
millions 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.
