The Madison City
Commissioners have
added an aerial fire
truck to their shopping
list. At their regular
meeting on A~ug. 10, the
board approved a
$387,000 USDA grant ap-
plication to fund most of
the truck's cost. The re-
mainder will come from
city and county coffers
at about $85,000 each.
According to City
Manager Harold Em-
rich, the ladder truck
will. be used in conjunc-
tion with North Florida
Community College for
firefighter training, as
well as adding a new
component to the city
and county firefighting
arsenal. He said that the


truck will go anywhere
it is needed in the coun-
ty, as well as responding
to nearby cities and

to approve three sepa-

did so unanimously.
In other business,
the board considered
plans for a carnival and
a festival. Chamber of
Commerce Director Ted

plans for a Chamber Fun
Carnival at Lanier Filed

During the upcom-

mary Election, Madison
County's registered vot-
ers will decide whether
they want to renew the
Board of County Com-
missioners' ability to
grant property tax ex-

nesses and expansions of
existing businesses.
Voters will cast a
"yes" or "no" vote to de-
cide the issue next Tues- Allen Cherry
day. Ten years ago,
Madison County voters said "yes'" to allow incen-
tives to bring new jobs and an expanded tax base to
the area.
County Coordinator Allen Cherry is in favor of
renewing the tax exemption for another ten years.
"We? constantly compete with the State of Georgia.
They have a lot more economic money than Florida
does," said Cherry. "The one thing we can use is this

would not have even looked at Madison County
without it," he said. It's part of their checklist to
weed out counties that do not offer assistance for
new construction.
Existing businesses can also qualify for proper-
ty tax exemptions if they expand their buildings
and equipment. Cherry said the county doesn't lose
anything tax-wise, and the community has every-
thing to gain in an expanded tax base.

2A Madison County Carrier


Wednesday, August 18, 2010


You have heard people talk
about "Southern Hospitality,'" but
I have seen it first-hand for the last
few years living down here in the
South. To tell you the truth, I al-
ways thought it was a phrase in-
vented by Hollywood for the
movies, but there really is such a
thing.
Southern Hospitality isn't just
something you find when visiting
some home of a rich farmer or the
local judge, you find it almost
every place you go. People in the
South are polite. It doesn't matter
if they are black or white, rich or
poor, from the city or live in a rur-
al area, they are all pretty much
nice to you when you meet them.
Here was a real surprise for
me. Now that I have moved to
Madison County, Florida, I have
had to deal with people at the
county court house form time to
time. I had to register to vote, file
my homestead for taxes, get build-
ing permits, and get a ne~w driver's
license. No matter which office or
what person I have had to deal
with, I have always left in a good
mood. I know this sounds strange,
but the people at the Madison


County Court H-ouse are there to
serve you, and they try as hard as
they can to make whatever you are
doing as easy as they can,
First off, they smile when you
walk in the door, and they ask
what they can do for you. Then
they actually listen, and almost
apologize if you are at the wrong
place. If you are at the wrong of
fice, they will tell you where you
have to go, and whom to ask for
when you get there. Many times
when you thank somebody for
their help, they answer with, "It is
my pleasure." Now how nice is
that, and how many times has that
happened to you in a government
office?
When Wanda and I moved to
rural Madison County, we started
looking for a church to attend. At
every church we went to, people
were very welcoming, and that
happens at almost any church
you go to any place in this country,
but here in the South, I have had
people say to me, "I sure hope our
church is right for you, but if it is-
n't, I pray you find the one that
is." No pressure, just people sin-
cerely hoping you find the right


place to worship and serve the
Lord.
Now I know some people have
their doubts about me, after all, I
am a Yankee in their eyes, or I
should say in their ears. I don't
sound a bit like I was raised down
here, and even though I tell them I
have been working on this Min-
nesota accent for decades to get it
just right, for some reason, they
don't buy my claim of a Southern
Heritage. However, when I tell
them that my wife is from Lower
Alabama, and that she was born
and raised in Pensacola, they say,
"Well then you aren't half as bad
as I thought." They say that with
a smile.
I know the people I lived with
in Northern Minnesota were just
as polite as the people here in the
South have been, but I don't know
if they were as welcoming. And
sorry to say, a trip to the Court
H-ouse was never a pleasant expe-
rience up North.
Southern Hospitality is real,
and I discovered it sure makes liv-
ing down here nice.

Mly family enjoyed a visit Saturday with my niece,
Mlorgan, and her children, pictured front to back:
Catherine, Isabella and Braxton.
Sorry that I missed out on the men's brother-
hood meeting this past Saturday at M~idway Baptist
Church. I heard that it was great and that everyone
enjoyed it.
The reason that I missed it was that I had visi-
tors that day. My niece, Morgan, was visiting from
North Dakota and she had her three children, Brax-
ton, Isabella and Catherine in tow. We all had a great
visit.
Thelma Thompson celebrated her 91st birthday
with a trip to Lake City for a birthday dinner with
her family, as well as guests and family from Jack-
sonville. Hope she had a great one.
Happy birthday wishes are extended this week
to Mary Pate, Thursday, Aug. 19; Ridge McCormick,
Sunday, Aug. 22; and Allen McCormick, Tuesday,
Aug. 24.
That's all the news for this week. Have a great
week and a beautiful forever. May G~od bless each
and every one of you.

Editor's note: "Stray
bVedtors" is the a Ado '
thoughts on the passing

We have a new eco-
nomic term underem-
ployment. These are
people who are working
at less than their capa-
bility just to stay busy
or bring home some
kind of check. Think of
it as a laid-off engineer
with two degrees work-
ing as a manager in a
fast food restaurant.
The current underem-
ployment rate plus the
unemployed is close to
20 percent.
A federal judge has
authorized officials in
Port Chester, N.Y. to con-
duct elections using "cu-
mulative voting." If the
election is for two com-
missioners, then each
person gets two votes ...
and you can cast them
for the same individual.
This is to improve the
chances of electing His-
panics. We're in big
trouble! So much for
"one man one vote."
Eighty (80) percent
of Harry Reid's cam-
paign war chest comes
from outside his home
state of Nevada. Just
who does he represent?
While we're at it, how
much of Allen Boyd's
money that he's using
for ads to beat up Al
Lawson come from out-
side the 2nd Congres-
sional District?
House Speaker Nan-
cy Pelosi thinks that the
best job creator is unem-
ployment benefits. If
that is true, whny don't
we all stop work and go
on the dole? This idiot
who has zero business
experience is third in
line to the presidency!
LeBron James will
play next year for the
Miami H-eat where, as
we all know, there is no
state income tax. H-e
passed on playing for
the Knicks where the
New York state income
tax is nearly 13 percent.
Any correlation?
That $787 billion
stimulus package
passed and implement-


ed just after Obama took
office isn't working.
Why? It was written by
(liberal) politicians
whose understanding of
matters economic
wouldn't fill a thimle.
Had it been written by
economists, it would
have been much smaller,
more broad-based, and
much more effective,
Rob Blagojevich,
former governor of Illi-
nois, has admitted to the
media that he is guilty
of talking too much. Is-
n't that the case with all
politicians? If they
spent more time listen-
ing and less time talk-
ing, we'd be a lot better
off.
Big spending liberal

million yacht in neigh-
boring Rhode Island to

lars in Massachusetts
tax. He has no problem
spending our money but
he's a little more careful
with his own. Hyp-
ocrite!
The relationship of
lower taxes to the eco-
nomic progress isn't
hard to understand.
Lower taxes means
more money stays in the
economy for invest-
ment. Higher taxes
means more money gets
siphoned off by govern-
ment and spent ineffi-
ciently, much of it
wasted on political fa-
vors.
The leaking oil well
in the Gulf of Mexico
has been plugged. Re-
covery vessels no longer
can find oil floating in
the Gulf to collect. To
paraphrase the Wendy's
commercial from thirty
years ago: where's the
oil?
The Social Security
Trustees have just re-
ported that the fund


(which just celebrated
its' 75th anniversary)
will be in the red this
year, paying out more
dividends than receipts.
Uh oh. Last time that
happened, Congress
raised both the payroll
tax and retirement age.
Typical answer to a bro-
ken system: raise taxes
and cut benefits.
Does Arizona have a
point that crime is out of
control because they are
a border state with a
huge illegal immigra-
tion problem? Appar-
ently so. Out of 94
federal judicial dis-
tricts, the top five in the
number of criminal
charges filed in 2009 are
the five districts that
cover our two thousand
mile southern border
with Mexico.
A Moslem group
wants to build a mosque
in the shadow of the
twin towers of the
World Trade Center.
They want to break
ground on the tenth an-
niversary of 9/11. A
large group of New York
construction workerS
who call themselves the
9/11 Hardhats say that
the mosque won't be
built. My money is on
the hardhats.
Chisel this is in
stone: You cannot spend
your way out of reces-
sion; you cannot tax
your w~ay out of debt.
House snapshot:
will the GOP wrestle
control of CongreSS
away from Democrats?
To do so, they need a 40
seat swing. Real Clear
Politics show that Re-
publicans will gain a net
of 24 seats from Democ-
rats with 31 in the
tossup category. Of
those, thirty are occu-
pied by an incumbent
Democrat. Doesn't look
good for the home team.

sponsored the motion to accept the plans. The board
approved it unanimously.
Mayor Judy Townsend reported some problems
in a personnel matter, which she spoke to Emrich
about. She did not deem his response satisfactory:
The board decided to hold a workshop to clarify the
duties and responsibilities of the city manager as
well as board members.
The commissioners will hold a budget workshop
on Aug. 24. Emrich reported that Madison encom-
passes property valued at just over $122 million,
with $73 million of that taxable.
Emrich also reported that the sidewalk repair
project is almost complete in the downtown walking
area. He added that the south end of town would be
addressed next.
The board asked City Attorney Clay Schnitker
to work with the Florida Department of Corrections
on stalled transfer of property for a second work
camp in the Industrial Park. The problem stems
from covenant restrictions that the state wants re-
moved.
Engineer Brent Whitman reported the bids for a
lift station improvement project. He recommended
hiring the low bidder, Worth Construction, at a cost
of $247,988.24. The board accepted that bid.

quality jobs to the community. "The property tax ex-
emption sunsets if the voters don't renew it," he
warned.
As far as any downside to the authorization to
grant property tax exemptions to new business and
existing businesses, voters must decide for them-
selves on this issue. The past ten years has brought
Fred's Inc. to Madison and there are currently com-
panies considering the area for relocation.
Cherry said that when U.S. Census data is re-
leased unofficially in January 2011, the population
count in Mladison. County could increase toward the
necessary 23,000 residents to open more doors to
new business. Ten years ago, he said only 40 percent
replies were received.
According to current Census estimates, "We're
only 19,000 people, that's why we're hoping we got a
good count with the Census," explained Cherry.
Companies such as retail and restaurants especially
look at the population of an area to make decisions
to build," he said.

Lorene Wilson

COSS On
On Sunday afternoon, August 15,
2010, Lorene Wilson Cosson was reunited
with her late husband, A.D. Cosson, who
escorted her through the pearly gates as
St. Peter waved her through. A sponta-
neous street party immediately erupted
consisting of Mlasons, Shriners, Lion's
Club members, Old Soldiers, State Troop-
ers, and Pink Ladies. A legion of Angels
were immediately summoned to quell the
disturbance, but they soon gave up and
Joined in the celebration.
Lorene was born in Geneva, Alaba-
ma in 1921. Her family later moved to De-
Funiak Springs, where she met and
married her high school sweetheart.
Lorene grewi up during the great depres-
sion and endured the hardships of WWII
until the return, of her husband at the
conclusion, of thne war. Lorene enjoyed
fifty-eight years of marriage with A.D.
until his passing in 1999. Lorene's dark
hair, brown eyes and her olive complex-
ion were evidence of her Native Ameri-
can heritage. She was a registered
member of the Ma-Chis Lower Creek
Tribe of Alabama. Lorene lived a life of
community service, which included over
thirty years of volunteer work as a Pink
Lady at TMH and service at Parkway
Baptist Church.
Lorene's peaceful passing took place
at her son and daughter-in-law's home in
Southwood where she has been living for
the last several months under the out-
standing care of Covenant Hospice. Visi-
tation will be held at noon on Friday
August 20, 2010 at Beggs Funeral Home in
Tallahassee, followed by the funeral ser-
vice at 1:00 p.m.. The burial will then be
at 5 p.m. EST (4 CST) at Magnolia Ceme-
tery in DeE'uniak Springs.
She is survived by her son and
daughter-inl-law, Danny and Sherry Cos-
son, and three grandchildren, Dan "DJ" ,
Ginny and Christy Cosson. DJ will not
be in attendance due to his current com-
bat deployment in Afghanistan. She is
also survived by four sisters and her step-
daughter's family.

"Don't Wait 'T~il It's To~o Late"

Hurricane Season is Here & Summer Thunderstorms


Abu thh d i hic o' b edn yaopu cIle off
to college. Can you afford to help them pay for school
while still saving for your own retirement?
There are many strategies to explore when saving for
your retirement and your child's education. To implement
the right mix of options, it's important to discuss your sit-
uation with a professional financial advisor, but here are
some options to consider:

*Contribute to your 401(k). Since many people don't
have unlimited funds available to save for retirement and
college, it's important to get the most mileage possible
from the money invested. Try to utilize the tax-advantaged
retirement accounts available to you. For starters, con-
tribute as much as you can afford to your 401(k) or other
employer-sponsored retirement plan. Not only can your
earnings grow on a tax-deferred basis, but your contribu-
tions are generally made with pretax dollars, so the more
you contribute, the lower your annual taxable income -
which, in turn, could give you more disposable income to
invest for college. In 2010, you can contribute up to
$16,500 to your 401(k), or $22,000 if you're 50 or older.
*Fund your IRA. Depending on your income level,
your contributions to a traditional IRA may also lower your
taxable income, again potentially freeing up resources for
college. Plus, your earnings can grow tax deferred. If you
qualify for a Roth IRA, your contributions are not tax-
deductible, but your earnings grow tax free. Withdrawals
are also tax-free, provided you've held your account at
least five years and you don't start taking withdrawals
until you're at least age 59V/2. Also, you can withdraw Roth
IRA contributions without paying taxes (since you've
already been taxed on this money), so you could use
these funds, if necessary, to help pay for college costs,
although ideally you'd like to leave your account
untouched until you retire. If eligible, you can contribute
up to $5,000 to your traditional or Roth IRA in 2010, or
$6,000 if you're 50 or older.
*Open a 529 college savings plan. Contributions to a
529 plan are made with after-tax dollars. However, when
you contribute to a 529 plan, your earnings grow tax free.
Withdrawals are also tax-free, provided they are used for
qualified higher education expenses. (Withdrawals for
expenses other than qualified higher education expendi-
tures may be subject to federal and state taxes plus a
10% penalty.) Furthermore, 529 plan contributions may
be eligible for a state tax deduction or credit in certain
s!'nisA fo rei nmewh nar uiopnaemins thi i5wnatsate's
quite generous, and you can gift $13,000 per year, per
beneficiary, without incurring gift taxes. To make sure you
understand the tax ramifications of a 529 plan, you'll want
to consult with your tax advisor.
It may not be easy to put away as much as we'd like for
retirement and college. But you do have some attractive
savings and investment options. Don't delay, because
when saving for any goal, time is a great ally.

extended by the voters on August 24, 2010. The Commnissioners established minimum job creation
criteria in order to obtain the e~xemzption, and the exemption is only for the property taxes on the new
construction. Other taxes levied by the School Board, Suwannee River Water Management,
Municipalities and Special Assessments are not affected by this exemption.

From an economic devel pment and job creation standpoint this authority is critical, as most every
county in Florida and South Georgia has the ability to grant this e~xem~ption. Having this authority
does not guarantee our success in causing businesses to look at our county for expansion purposes.
However, NOT` having the authority will certainly guarantee that we will not be competitive in this
bidding process. Every business inquiry that we have received over the last ten years has requested
information about our property tax exemption.

Madison County has one of the highest unemployment rates in Florida and the Southeast. Therefore,
we need meaningful. jobs for our citizens. We have affordable land, a willing workforce and wve are
well suited geographically to attract the businesses looking to expand. Having this authority will
allow us to remain competitive.

On behalf of the Board Members of the M'adison County Development Council, we strongly urge you
to vote YES for the renewal of this authority.

AUGUST 24, 2010, IS A VERY IMPORTANT DAY


FOR THE FUTURE OF AMZERICA.

America is in a downward spiral with Morals, Values, and~ Economic Survival. This

has happened because the leaders of today have lost touch with the reality of life.

You cannot spend more than you make, You cannot create rules that stifle the job market

and growth. The public sector cannot be larger than the private sector. You cannot turn
a blind eye to immoral acts because the media has desensitized society with Television
and M~usic.

The only hope we as Americans have are the leaders of tomorrow. We must begin this

transition August 24, 2010. Below is a list of Candidates that we believe will allow

Americans to succeed in all forms of Life. Financially, Morally, and Spiritually!i Please

consider these candidates when you vote for a better America!

Now that summer is coming I am
looking forward to a vacation at the
beach but I am not looking forward to the
fever blisters which crop up when I get
in the sun. Is there anything I can do
about the fever blisters?



Answer :

As a matter of fact you can. Wouldn't
you like to go to Disney World for the
day and not be miserable with fever
blisters for two weeks afterwards? I have
a number of patients which call me for a
refill of a prescription medicine called
zovirax. The medicine is taken once
daily, starting three days before the trip.
My patients have reported great success
preventing herpes breakouts as long as
they remember to take a tablet each day.
My suggestion, call your dentist or
physician and ask them for a prescription
or Zovirax before your summer vacation.

The Senior Citizens Council of Madison County
wants to keep seniors physically and mentally fit, so
they're asking for health and medical book dona-
tions for the new seniors' library. The new location
is at SR 14 and Harvey Greene Drive.
Even book donations, in good condition, on how
to cook healthy foods would be appreciated to keep
everyone's tastebuds happy.
Every three months, a Registered Licensed Di-
etitian provides nutrition education to seniors and
nutritional staff at the Senior Center. Nutrition in-
formation is distributed to homebound seniors, too.
The Senior Citizens Council of Madison County
staff works closely with agencies in both Madison
and surrounding areas to offer services at a low cost
or no cost to seniors. With cooperation from the
Madison Health Department, churches, Catholic
charities, community colleges, medical profession-
als and other volunteers, they provide comprehen-
sive programs that benefit local seniors.
The targeted population is sixty years old or


older, medically inclined, low-income, socially iso-
lated, minority, disabled and eighteen years of age
or older with diagnosis of Alzheimer's.

By M.K. Graves
Greene Publishing, Inc.
In 2003, when Dr.
Ryan Moorman, DC, be-
gan Care Medical Center
in Valdosta, Ga., he did-
n't realize how far-reach-
ing his idea would be to
bring orthopedic physi-
cians, chiropractors,
physical therapists and
massage therapists to-
gether to help patients
get well.
"I decided to have
them all under one roof
to improve patient care,"
he said. Care Medical
Center is a full- service
pain and rehabilitation
center specializing in
non-surgical treatments
for knee and arthritis
pain, back and neck pain,
and disc problems.
In just seven years,
Care Medical Center has
expanded from Valdosta
to Tifton and Nashville,
Ga. Dr. Moorman be-
lieves that having the
eyes and hands of multi-
ple practitioners on-site
gives each patient an
edge in solving their
pain problems.
With so much em-
phasis on surgery, its ex-
orbitant costs, and often
dismal results, Dr. Moor-
man issues this personal
healthcare challenge to
local residents: "We'll
give you the first visit on
us," he said. This free
consultation, initial
exam and x-ray is valued
at $240. "We'll sit down,
go over your problem,
the best treatment choice
and what the cost of
treatment will be," he
said.
The Care Medical
Center has treated thou-
sands of patients suc-
cessfully and has a high
percentage of patients
receiving natural relief
from spine, joint and
arthritis problems.
Dr. Paul Baxt, MD, is
one of the doctors pro-

Davis and Jessica Thomps
viding pain management
at the Care Medical Cen-
ter. He is a board certi-
fled orthopedic surgeon
who has experienced his
own pain with two hip re-
placements and a knee
surgery.
"I've had it done,
and I've done it," said
Baxt, who said surgeons
make $15,000 to do a
knee surgery.
"It's a matter of
economy. The doctor will
push the patient toward
what they do and believe
in," said Dr. Baxt.
After his painful
knee surgery, Baxt said,
"I don't think anyone
should have knee
surgery without trying
other options." As he


sees it, the only downside
is that natural methods
may not work. "If it does
work, you've avoided
surgery," he said.
Care Medical Cen-
ter's "Knee Surgery Pre-
vention Program"
combines FDA approved
all-natural hyaluronic
acid, or hyalgin, which is
injected into the knee us-
ing a live motion x-ray,
known as video fluo-
roscopy. Baxt said there
are no side effects, and
the only pain is the knee
injection itself. On a 0-10
pain level, he said the in-
jection is about a Level
One, depending on the
patient.
Next, Dr. Baxt pre-
scribes a customized
physical therapy pro-
gram at Care Medical
Center, called Theracizer
Rehabilitation, to help to
build thigh muscles and
increase the effective-
ness of the hyalgin,
which bonds with joint
fluid in the knee to create
lubrication and a cush-
ioning layer in the knee.
Pain, inflammation and
swelling of the joint is re-
duced, allowing the pa-
tient to once again enjoy

tor of Physical Therapy

A vast majority of
knee patients arriving
for the first time at Care
Medical Center have pre-
viously been told to have
their knees replaced. "If
you take a patient like
that, and make them 80
percent better, that pa-
tient is ecstatic," said
Baxt. "They don't need

clinical research has
shown Cox decompres-

cent effective for lumbar
sprain/strain and 86 per-
cent effective for herniat-
ed discs. Sports physical
and medicine, nerve con-
duction and EMG stud-
ies, bone density tests
and nutritional counsel-
ing are also available.
Dr. Moorman said
his staff files all insur-
ance paperwork for pa-
tients. They are
providers for most net-
works and offer same
day appointments when
available. The Care Med-
ical Center phone num-
ber to call for an
appointment is (229) 241-

dosta is easy to find at

Knee patients, even
after being released by
Dr. Baxt, must continue
their Theracizer Rehabil-
itation exercises at
home. "Twenty minutes,
three times a week, is the
difference between you
having a giant slice in
your knee, or not having
that," he said. "The phys-
ical therapy is an inte-
gral part of therapy."
Other painful condi-
tions that have been suc-
cessfully treated at Care
Medical Center include
spine and muscle condi-


juries and worker's comp
injuries.
When asked if he
thought most people in
the area know about
Care Medical Center's
services, Dr. Moorman
said, "Hands down, most
people don't know the va-
riety of services we of-
fer." Their web site is

Aaron, however, is
more than just a student;
he is also a proud mem-

Aaron was raised

Team Tallahassee

schedule has included
many tournaments, as
well as games. The boys
played at the Florida
Cup in Vero Beach and
took first place. They
played in the World

Aaron's reasons for

reason is that I just flat

doing for the rest of my

Aaron has been and
continues to be led by
some of Madison's
finest coaches. He said,
"I have had some really
good coaching from

The Madison County High School Cowboys have
built a great tradition of winning and they could not
have done that without the support of their fans and
their Booster Club.
"It's not just for football," Lee Anne Hall, the
secretary of the Booster Club said. "When you be-
come a member of the Booster Club, you support all
sports."
She said that Booster Club memberships are
pro-rated and go from everything from football to
basketball to softball to tennis and numerous other
sports.
The Marshal's Club is the name that the Booster
Club uses for its football program. When someone
joins the Marshal's Club, they receive reserve park-
ing for all of the Cowboys' home football games, as
well as season tickets for the games.
Marshal's Club tickets are still available. Please
call (850) 464-0321 to order tickets.
In addition to Hall serving as secretary of the
Booster Club, Rusty Smith is the president and Brid-
gette Gudz serves as treasurer.
Hall said that she and her husband, Darryl, have
been supporting the Boosters since her daughter,
Jessie, was a freshman in high school. Jessie has
graduated, but now she goes to watch her son, Hank,
play football each week.
"It was my goal in life to sit in the bleachers
when my kids got in high school and watch them
play," she said. "It is probably one of the most re-
warding things I've ever done."
Hall will be sitting in the bleachers this year
with thousands of others, rooting the Cowboys on to
victory.

Dear Parents:

This summer, we im-
plemented a summer
math assignment for stu-
dents attending Madison
County High School for
the 2010-2011 school year.
Our goal is to increase
student success in math-
ematics classes at MCHS
by having them ready
with basic math skills at
the beginning of the
school year. When stu-
dents struggle in Alge-
bra or other math
classes, often they do not
know elementary math


facts like multiplication.

The two basic skills
to focus on this summer
are:
Multip li cat io n
facts (zeros through
12x12)
Operations with
fractions (add, subtract,
multiply, and divide no
mixed numbers)
If your child strug-
gles with these skills,
they need to PRACTICE.
During the first
week of the 2010-2011
school year, all students
enrolled in MCHS math-


ematics classes will be
given two timed tests.
The tests will be part of
their mathematics
course grade. Exact time
limits will be deter-
mined later, but students
need to be able to do the
multiplication work-
sheet in about 3 minutes
or less with no errors.
(Note: if your child has
documented accommo-
dation needs which al-
low more time, the time
limit for these tests may
be adjusted on an indi-
vidual basis.)
Here are some ideas


for additional practice:
Make your own (or
purchase) flash cards for
multiplication facts
through 12x12.
Practice at least a
few days every week. A
few minutes DAILY, is
even better.
Try an internet
search and you'll find
many free resources,
even games,
Practice worksheets
and answer keys are
available on the MCHS

ditional resources, pre-
sentations and news ar-
ticles about class size
reduction in Florida.
"The topic of class
size reduction has
spurred debate across
the state for decades,
leaving citizens with an
often unrealistic under-
standing of the initia-
tive and its
requirements," said Ed-
ucation Commissioner
Dr. Eric J. Smith.
In 2002, the Florida
Constitution was
amended to set limits
on the number of stu-
dents in core classes in
the state's public
schools beginning with
the 2010-2011 school
year. Since that time,


school districts
throughout the state
have followed an imple-
mentation schedule
that has steadily re-
duced core class sizes
at district and school
levels by at least two
students per year. In
2009-10, 97 percent of
prek-3 classes, 99.8 per-
cent of grade 4-8 class-
es, and 99.7 percent of
grades 9-12 classes were
in compliance with
school-level class size
requirements.
During the 2010
Legislative Session, the
Florida Legislature ap-
proved a joint resolu-
tion to place a proposed
constitutional amend-
ment on the November


ballot allowing Floridi-
ans to vote to change the
current maximum class
sizes to "school-wide av-
erage class sizes." If the
amendment is approved
by voters, maximum
class sizes would contin-
ue to be calculated based
on the school-wide aver-
age of the number of
students in core classes
beginning with the 2010-
2011. These averages
would remain: 18 stu-
dents in prek-grade 3; 22
students in grades 4-8;
and 25 students in
grades 9-12.

By M.K. Graves
Greene Publishing, Inc.
When children grow up in fami-
lies where reading is not taught early,
they can fall behind as they start
school with little preparation.
Connecting children and their
families to quality educational experi-
ences before they enter kindergarten
is one of the main services provided
by The Early Learning Coalition
(ELC) of the Big Bend region, which
has offices in seven counties. Head-
quartered in Leon County, ELC has
rural Family Service Centers in Madi-
son, Jefferson, Taylor, Gadsden,
Wakulla, and Liberty Counties.
The Early Learning Coalition cen-
ter in Madison at 309 SW Range Av-
enue serves an average of 10-15
families a week, which is increasing
as another school year approaches.
"We do such a great thing for fam-
ilies, a valuable resource," said Lau-
ren Faison, newly appointed chief
executive officer, as of July 1, for ELC
of the Big Bend region. She is current-
ly traveling in ELC's seven counties to
meet community partners and to give
United Way presentations.
Madison families are encouraged
to visit The Early Learning Coalition
center to ask about tuition assistance
for the childcare services they need, or
to schedule screenings and assess-
ments if their child is having develop-
mental problems. Computers in the
ELC's Resource Center are available
for job searches.
"We are looking for ways to net-
work with parents and see what their
issues are," said Faison. She said they
are very proud of the Madison Family
Service Center, which is open Monday-
Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
At the beginning of the school
year, parents often have questions
about which child care provider to
choose, and ELC's staff can provide re-
sources for the best match for each
family's needs. The phone number in


Madison is (850) 973-2512.
As families walk into the Madison
office, the foyer is stocked with free ed-
ucational brochures, Parent Calen-
dars and the Word Garden Giving
Libraries section that offers My First
Books to promote early reading in
each child. "We give out books to those
who need them," said Faison.
Important programs available
through The Early Learning Center
are the Voluntary Pre-K Program and
the School Readiness Program. Young-
sters enter the Voluntary Pre-K Pro-
gram, which is free to all four-year
olds born on or before Sept. I each
year, as long as they are Florida resi-
dents. Family income is not an issue
for registering in the program.
The State of Florida's Agency for
Workforce Innovation Offce of Early
Learning provides funding for the
School Readiness Program, which helps
at risk or low-income families deal with
work issues and how to afford paying for
childcare services. Other support ser-
vices are also provided.
The Early Learning Coalition of
the Big Bend region is sponsoring a
community-wide Back to School dance
on Friday, Sept. 10, at 7-11 p.m. for all
seven counties it serves, an unique op-
portunity to share information and
meet each other. The fundraiser dance
takes place at the Goodwood Carriage
House in Tallahassee.
"Anyone can purchase tickets,"
said Megan Gocs of the Tallahassee of-
fice. The tickets are $25 each. Sponsors
are still needed for the dance and addi-
tional information is available online
at http://wwwo~.elcbigbend. org/. All
monies raised will go to childcare tu-
ition scholarships for area families.
In October, The Early Learning
Coalition of the Big Bend region head-
quarters in Tallahassee will be mov-
ing to the Northwood Centre at 1940
North Monroe Street.

/ 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
You may have heard that oil is no longer flowing into the Gulf. But every
morning our spotter planes and helicopters continue to search for oil
off the coast, heading to areas previously mapped with satellite imagery
and infrared photography. If oil is found, they radio down to the ships
and boats of all sizes that are supporting the cleanup effort and working to
collect the oil. These are local shrimping and fishing boats organized
into task forces and strike teams, plus specialized skimmers mobilized
from around the world.

We have recovered more than 35 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 millions of 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 $3.9 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
