Greenville's most want-
ed has finally been cap-
tured. The infamous black
bear's killing spree finally
came to an end Thursday,
May 26, at the hands of the
local game and wildlife
team who apprehended the
bear,\\ho killed chickens at
,two farms on Federal Road
off Highway 150 South.
Buddy Spradiey, of
Spradley Farrns, rallied the
troops by calling the local
wildlife division, as well as
several media agencies to
hunt down this mad killer
The killing spree didn't
end there, as the bear killed
Don Bailey's chickens rais-
ing the death toll to 50-plus.
Spradley sighed in re-
lief as the bear- was finally'
detained in a culvert trap set
by the wildlife squad.
Teamleader Jason Pike was
the one responsible for the
trapping and sedation of the
bear and will foresee the re-
lease, hoping the bear will

be re-acclimated into anoth-

What Happened?

This is by a daughter of a murdered couple in Raytown who
had a Bible and book store on 63rd Street.
When I had to testify at the murder trial of my parents a
week ago, I was asked to raise my right hand. The bailiff start-
ed out, "Do you swear to tell-the truth, the whole truth, and noth-
ing but the truth?"
I stood there and waited but she said nothing more. She
said, "Do you?" I was so stunned I blurted out, "What happened
to so help me 'God? "She came back with "Do you?" I replied
yes, but I was perplexed. Then the judge said, "You can say
that if you want to." I stopped, raised my right hand and finished
with "so help me God!"
I told my son and daughter that when it came time .for them
to testify, they should do the same. It's no wonder we have so
many problems in this country. If I'd had my wits about me, I'd
have told them that taking God out of the courtroom is only go-
ing to result in more criminals and murderers like him being in
there. I don't know what can be done about it, but it's time we
stepped up and did something.
CNBC this morning had a poll on this question. They had,
the highest number of responses that they have ever had for one
of their polls and the percentage u\as the same as this: 86- to

Some Strange Happenings

In The Cemetery.
I don't like visiting cemeteries, but I will upon occasion, es-
pecially if I'm downcast that day. I have a mother, brother and
two sisters who are buried in the cemetery at Beulah Baptist
Church. If I'm having a bad day, I will go out to the cemetery
and visit their graves. Knowing that only their bodies are in the
ground and their souls are in Heaven gives me comfort. Al-
though it's in a lovely place, the Beulah Baptist Cemetery seems
to be a lonely deserted place, overwhelmed by silence, inter-
rupted only by the occasional sound of a breeze whistling
through the loneliness.
I'm sad to say that I've felt that way in church a lot lately.
Maybe it's my fault. Sunday evening, though, I didn't feel that
way. I felt renewed, refreshed, empowered by the pastor's up-
lifting sermon. He. seemed happier and the handful of people
who went to the service Sunday evening seemed happier. was
happier., .. ..
I woke up about 12:30 a.m. Monday morning with an over-
whelming need for something. I was thirsty for things of the
spirit. I began reading from a couple of Christian books that
comforted me for a while. I fell back asleep and woke up at 2
a.m. with the same desire.
In the Bible, we learn about a man named Elisha who was
buried in a cave when he died. One day, some people threw a
dead man in the cave where Elisha's bones lay. Elisha was so
full of the Spirit of God that, even though Elisha was dead, the
other dead man who was thrown in his grave came back to life.
That's what I want to do. I want to come back to life. I pray that
my church and all the people in it come back to life. The key to
this happening, however, is for me-to pray!
I want the church that I once again be a thriving
church. I want to see people there, working to further the King-
dom of God, enjoying each other's company and, yes, prosper-
ing. I want to see everyone myself included prosper. I want
to prosper financially, physically, but, most of all, I want to pros-
per spiritually.
I want to see the church I attend grow, like a friend, who
said Sunday evening during the testimony service that he want-
ed to see it grow.
I want to see all the true Bible-believing churches in Madi-
son County, around the state, around the nation and around the
world explode with new growth. I want to see something strange
going on in the cemetery. I want to see life there!

keep the words; 15% against. That is a pretty commanding pub-
lic response.
It is said that 85% of Americans believe in God. Therefore,
I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a mess
about having "In God We Trust" on our money and having "un-
der God" in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don't we just tell the
14% to sit down and SHUT UP!

Marriage Matters

Imagine being ten years old, strolling into the kitchen for
your after-school snack, just minding your own innoc4,nt busi-
ness, when what to your wondering eyes should appear but your
parents in a very warm embrace. Not only that, they are yuck!
- KISSING! And saying sweet things to one another as though
you are not even there. Eeeuuw !
Ver3 clear]). I recall my insides just squirming when it fell
my lot to discover such lusty activity. Sometimes my two older
brothers and I played this mean trick on each other: whoever had
just come from the kitchen did not bother to warn anyone else
about the unseemly goings-on just next to the sink. The first one
would roll in cruel sibling laughter when the second one came
scooting from the kitchen in wide-eyed alarm.'
We're all adults now, and we have been the ones kissing in
the kitchen, causing our offspring to writhe in embarrassment.
I'll bet not one of my brothers or my sister has forgotten those
times we came across Paul and Clara, Barrett expressing their
love, for each other.
That love took root just over 65 years ago, when Clara
Sheffield attended a revival meeting where a Noung preacher
boy named Paul Barrett was holding forth in Green ille. Flori-
da. She made up her mind instantly that he was going to be hers.
and she wangled the situation (%with his full connivance, of
course). On June 4, 1940, with hardly a penny between them,
they married in the home of her parents in Madison, and began
their life of ministry,and service together in- the parsonage at
Morven, Georgia.
I wish I could tell you how many congregations have wit-
nessed their strong union over the intervening years. Mostly
country churches, but a few in small tow ns like Cairo and
Homerville and cities like Columbus and Valdosta. Revivals,
camp meetings, homecomings, and evangelistic series my fa-
ther preached them all, and my mother sat listening and loving
The plan was that, in his retirement, he would preach re-
-.'ivals and camp meetings; he had some already' scheduled when
hie left his last pulpit and they moved into the old home place on
Little Cat Road, outside of Madison.
Because Paul's memory was sucemnbing to a form of de-
mentia, those plans had to be canceled. Still, a visitor to that
home.would find them holding. hands 6r sitting quietly' next-to
other enjoying a brilliant sunset. The love of soimany years'was
still palpable.
Now, Paul is a resident at Lake Park of Madison Nursing
.Home. When his wife enters the room, his face lights up. Some-
.imes, he's able to ask her to stay longer; sometimes, he tells her
to hurry back.
And Clara? Very little will keep her from being at his side'
for at least two meals a day, and sometimes longer periods. She
brushes. his hair, does his laundry, and tenderly feeds him. She
loves the man he is as well as she loved the man he w as.
Now, on the eve of their 65th wedding anniversary, an on-
looker can still see the love. No one will surprise them locked in
a steamy hug. But the touches, the glances. the quiet words still
say, "I love you." '
Maybe that's the secret of their long-lived marriage ex-
pressing the love "as time goes by," no matter what the circum-
stance. no matter what the clock may say.
Even as we recall those red-faced kitchen moments, my sib-
lings and I cannot thank our parents enough for showing us their
love in the most elemental w ay. It made our home strong, and
kept their commitment real through all these years. That love
\ ill continue just as powerfully as time goes by.
For this, we express our'appreciation. We love
you both and congratulate you on 65 happy years from your
five children, their spouses, and all the grands and great-grands.
May your love last into eternity.

Identity Theft Can Strike

Anyone At Any Age
Identity theft is not just a problem for adults. Offenses
against children are on the rise, and a University of Florida con-
sumer education expert says the problem can actually be worse
for younger victims.
"Many parents don't realize that child identity theft exists,
which means the crime often goes undetected for years," said
Mary Harrison, a professor with UF's Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences.
According to Harrison, parents need to know how to recog-
nize child identity theft because early discovery can greatly re-
duce the impact on victims. If the crime is reported promptly,
,the thief has less time to run up debt, and authorities have a bet-
ter chance of finding evidence.
For children under 18, the number of identity theft com-
plaints reported to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission increased
by more than half between 2003 and 2004 from about 6,400
cases to 9,800. At the same time, the percentage of child victims
among all identity theft cases increased from 3 to 4 percent.
In some respects, identity thieves treat personal data from
children and adults the same way. Most often, they use stolen
information to conduct fraudulent financial transactions, though
they sometimes use it to obtain government documents such as,
driver's licenses, or give it to police when stopped or charged,
with a crime.
When it comes to credit card fraud, child identity theft dif-
fers in an important respect:. Thieves necessarily create new
credit accounts for child victims, whereas most cases of adult
identity theft in olive existing accounts. That can make the crime
worse for child victims.
According to a 2003 FTC survey. victims of new account,
fraud spend four times as much time and almost five unies as
much money clearing their records compared with victims who
had only existing accounts accessed
Victims of new account fraud are also far more likely to en-
counter other problems. such as denial of credit. loss of utility or
phone service and criminal investigation.
Safeguarding a child's identity requires many of the same
precautions parents should take for themselves, but with a few
twists. Preschool-age children are unlikely to be approached by
scammers, so parents must bear the burden of protecting docu-
ments and other information. Parents should avoid carrying
their child's Social Security card. and should complain if their
child's school uses Social Security numbers to identify students.
oCaTFor- older, children, the .popudarity of personal computers in
homes and'schools creates"a' risk'they will' be -victimized by In-
ternet scams such as "phishing." Harrison reports that even
bnght children who are very computer-savvy may not under-
stand the need to make a habit of monitoring their children's In-
ternet use, talk to their kids about identity theft and tell them
what information they should and. should not share with others.
Parents should also monitor incoming mail for children of all
ages because credit card offers or even debt collection notices
can indicate credit activity is taking place already. This recom-,
mendation comes from the Identity Theft Resource Center, a
nonprofit organization based in San Diego. Calif..
Getting a credit card offer addressed to your child does not
necessarily mean there's a problem. If you have opened a bank
account or a frequentflyer card in your child's name, your child
may receive mass-mailings from credit affiliates. If this starts,
,the Identify Theft Resource Centers suggests "ou call the com-
pany that has the child's information to see if they're on a mar-
keting list and request their name be removed.
Receiving debt collection notices in your child's name is a
much more serious indication that your child's information is
being misused, and warrants checking the child's credit report
w ith the three major credit reporting agencies. Experian. Tran-
sUnion and Equifax.
Parents should consider checking their children's credit re-
ports every year. especially if they suspect their personal infor-
mation has been compromised. Make a habit of ordering an an-
nual credit report for your child. This way, you will be able to
check your child's credit history and uncover any identity theft
in a timely fashion. If no credit accounts have been established
in your child's name, the credit agencies will inform you that
your child does not have a credit report.
Parents who discover evidence of child identity theft should
immediately' report fraudulent acti\ ity to one of the three major
credit reporting agencies and ask that a fraud alert be placed on
the child's credit record. Parents should also contact any credi-
tors listed in the child's credit, report and file a police report
If your child becomes a victim of identity theft, you need to
understand the seriousness of this crime and take action prompt-
ly. A person's credit score is becoming so important now not
just for getting credit, but also for obtaining insurance, finding
housing, and applying for jobs. ID theft can have a very far-
reaching impact.

We a% oke this morning to a reading on our thermometer of 50 degrees and this
on the 25th of May' By evening it will be about 85 degrees Seventeen years ago,
on the 21st of May,. an August beat ruled the entire day that was our first Lee Day.
We quickly backed the date up to ApriL but thank the Lord for this beautiful day!
Early spnng weather this 'ear. though, with high w mrds, low temperatures and
tloodndg rains, caused many, trees and shrubs either to lose their budding flowers or
not to put them on at all Our yard usually has dogwood, wistena, azaleas, lilies,
bridal wreaths, and running roses looming profusely not so this year. Howeer,
the wildflowers, in bloom later, hate made up for the former' lack of beauty.
For the above reason, w c had not chosen a yard of the month this spring. So,
as we are passing a vacant lot the other day on the corner of US 90 and CR 255
South. e found it covered in an absolute mass of lovely brown-eyed Susans and
thought it must be the most beautiful spot in Lee and nominated it as a subsutute
choice and was even intending to thank its owner. Jimmie Ragans, for not mow ing
it yet However, the next morning, we were shocked to find one end of it mowed -
we're sure a mistake for the rest of the flowers are still standing.
On Thursday last, v, e attended a supper hosted by the Suwannee River Water
Management District on '.he banks of the Su k'annee Ri % er mn the state park atEllav-
ille. After a tourtof the beauuful ne'w cabins recently built there, we were treated to
delicious meal ot mullet, grns both plain and cheese ), hush puppies, slaw, banana
pudding and iced tea Some officials fir-m SRWIMD including this district's super,
Donald Foregone, had spent several hours canoeing down the Wilderness Trad T.o

annual Lee Da\ Committee gathenng, as usual, consisted of the members'congrat-
ulating each other on another N.ear's successful event For vanous reasons, a few

with Cuirmani Lmnda Heskath supplying a huge cake for dessert. Beautifully deco-
rated, the cake expressed her "ThanLs Lee Da\ Commiuee"'deliciously. 2006 is on
the way, yfall!
Lee First Baptist Church welcomed qutte a crowd last Sunday we were told
that approximately 200 amended the first service in the beautiful new building con-.
gratulanons to evenrone concerned in all the planning and construction of this addi-
tion t) our community. '
Lee Methodist hosted a very old fashioned and %er. successtil tent re\i\al

S lk'st church homecomings, which have been numerous and happy occasions,
are now over and graduations and weddingss have taken center stage. We send con-
gratulations to all of them, especially to MCHS salutatonan Sharon Quackenbush of
Lee, and outstanding student and a lovely young lady; to Jamie Ledee who is also
lo el\ and talented and added bolth to our Lee Day pageant. We include twins
.lacqueline and James Ratliff, Bryan Phillips, Charissa Doyle and Chnstiopher

futures for them. ff we missed s, ,meone. we apologize Please let us know

Tommy and Debbie Davis have moved into their lovely new home, except
for little things )ike hanging pictures and placing those little things: about which
make a house a home. Debbie was also beginning to hang drapes the new ones
she had up were gorgeous. We had been invited over thank you, Debbie and
were given a tour. They are justifiably proud of what Debbie dubs their dream
retirement home. I
Sitting in the middle of five acres, the home with its many tall windows
reaching for the sky. though imposing, is painted in a calming shade of medium
gray with white trim which keeps it from seeming intrusive in its surroundings.
Also helping the imposing look :s the interior which though filled with light
every here from those v.indows and very room., still seems quite cozy. With a
ddcor which features the warmth of earth tones in varying shades of beige, tan
and cocoa brown, light wood and soft ocher furniture and unobtrusive grayish
carpet, an inviting atmosphere pervades the inner area.
Dramatic touch which adds contrast is the light brown-trimmed white rail-
ing which cordoned off the dining area and followed the stairs to the upper floor
and the dark tile of the bathroom floors. The entry's flooring, which extended
into the dining area is studding. Of light brown tile with darker design, it's a per-
fect substitute for beautiful wood and much easier to maintain. We loved the
breakfast ioom and the second floor balcony. When the planned landscaping, the
large back deck and swimming pool are completed, the upper balcony in back
and the tall, paned area on the front will provide spectacular views of towering
trees and lush greenery.
We hope it won't be long before, the Davises can retire soon from their
tracking business and fully enjoy their "retirement" home.
And now we leave you with the following food for thought from The Edu-
cation of Henry Adams:
"Politics, as a practice, Whatever its professions, has always been the sys-
tematic organization of hatreds."

Laughing At Myself
We should laugh at ourselves sometimes.
I have been know n to do funny things once in awhile. I have
found it helpful in my capacity as a grandfather, to look and act
There is a memory I have how ever. of a spectacular. hilari-
ous event that I did not consider funny, at the time, but when
looking back over 40 years, I have decided to laugh..
Other things have captured the interest of those I knew and
went to school with After all. since 1963. we have had the moon
landings. Vietnam. Watergate, and 911. That fall. JFK was as-
sassinated. We had all of the turmoil of the 60s, and the adven-
tures of the 70s. 80s. and 90s I went to college. married, had
children, and then grandchildren. Still, the memory of this event
is vi\ id to me. and I hale ali\ays surmised, to my classmates.
Some background is needed.
During my high school years. I "as known for se eral
things., but especially for my interest in. and deep knowledge of
the American CiiIl War I w\as really known for my strong
Southern leanings. sort of ''Mike the Rebel."
But hold on. w ait, pause. Do not write to me and tell me the
conflict should be known by another name. I am Southern born
and bred. I eat grits and barbeque and combread and drink iced
tea. I am wi ell aware there are at least 20 names for the War. I use
the term C'\1l War because it is easier to type. The title. War Be-
tween the States. came from a book by the ex-Confederate Vice
President, \\ written after die conflict.
One of the big traditions. during that time at Clearwater High
\\as an assembly near the end of the school year. The only ones
in\ cited were the juniors and seniors. The seniors were enjoi tng
many special things during the last weeks of the school year. We
had Senior Week and Senior Day and maybe even Senior Hour
I think this particular historic gathering was called Senior As-
sembly. The juniors were anxious to take our places We senior's
were anxious to graduate.
A few awards \\ere presented. Memories were recalled A
main feature was the naming of 12 gow n-clad young ladies as
Mliss January, February, etc. These girls were all escorted by
well-dressed young men. Some creative planner remembered
my enthusiasm for The Wah. and offered me a part in the pro-
ceedings. It would be my biggest moment, e\er. I was to take my
3' x 5' hand-sew n, authentic Confederate battle flag, dash out
onto the stage, and yell, "The South will rise again."
It was not a lengthy script. I needed only a few short re-
hearsals. There was a small complication. My flag was dis-
played on the wall of my room and had no staff. nothing to car-
rv it on. Not to be slowed down by such a small matter, I loet-
ed an American llaj backstage. I carefully removed the Stars
and Stripes ad temporarily mounted the' ebel banner. Howe\-
er, at the top of the flagstaff. there was a decoration, an ornament
resembling some ancient spearhead. Remember this detail.
At the appointed time. I began my 20-foot dash and opened
my mouth to deliver my lines. There was a problem. My flag.
the pole. and the spearhead ornament were all hopelessly caught
in the huge. expensive curtain. This curtain ran from ceiling to
floor. I froze. pulled harder, panicked, delivered my lines in a
feeble. garbled. voice. and dashed backstage. I had visions of
working for 30 years to pa. for a ripped auditorium curtain.
Backstage. young ladies in evening gowns and their formal-
clad escorts were literally rolling on the floor in laughter., pound-
ing their hands on the wooden surface, and actually crying Out
front, I could hear the students laughing. I hoped they would
think it was all part of the show. Fat chance.
As a teenager, one wvho cared what others thought of me.
don't they all?.). I w"as sure I could never return to class or the
athletic field. I knew most of the seniors and juniors would con-
sider this one of their high school highlights, a memory carved
in stone. I was partially correct. As I went to phys. ed that day. I
heard about the incident. As the days went by. I assumed most
people had forgotten the event, spectacular though it was.
Wrong. When I looked at my yearbook. I noticed that the
coach/teacher I had asked to sign the annual, wrote a memorable
inscription, forever sealing in ink the image of my big moment
The message said. 'To the man who got caught in the curtain...'
Thanks. Coach.
I: was never billed for the curtain damage. Perhaps the ad-
ministration could not explain to die county school board how
die curtain came to be so twisted, mangled and ripped.
If the reader is searching for a deep lesson in this week's
column. give it up. I have just been laughing at an old memory.
I can laugh at me.

Reggie Wallace especially wants Madison to know that it's not just a car lot but his business is open for
all mechanical repairs. Wallace Car Sales and Repair is located on 1512 East Base Street and can be

"It's basically a used car lot with a with a service department for repairs,"' said Reggie Wallace about the op-
eration of his car sales dealership.
Wallace buys most of his cars at auctions in Central and South Georgia.
"There is an auction I go to in Atlanta and one I go to in Tifton," said Wallace.
The business started out as R and J Auto Sales and had been in operation for about 12 years, and in January,
Wallace started building his new enterprise.
"I put the building up myself. When the car lot started out, it was R and J Auto Sales," said Wallace.
Wallace is a certified mechanic who has been working on, cars most of his life and prefers to work on domes-
tic vehicles.
"I started out working on cars when I was young so I would have a ride, and just kept with it," said Wallace.
Wallace especially wants Madison to know that it's not just a car lot but is open for all mechanical repairs.
Wallace Car Sales and Repair is located on 1512 East Base Street and can be reached at 973-1230.
Wallace said that he would like to thank everybody personally who helped him along. "but the list is too big

One of Florida's most controversial amendments was passed
in 1994, the Net Limitation Act. Since the amendment has,
passed, the commercial fishing industry and the balance of
the ecosystem have been in constant decline. HB 741 would
protect the environment for future generations while allow-
ing commercial fishermen to continue earning a living which
contributes to the economy of our communities across the
state. This issue is for
from over. The Office
of Program Policy
Analysis and
Government Account-
ability (OPPAGA)
along with the
University of Florida,
Florida State
University, and Florida
Atlantic University will conduct a 2 year study to examine
the effects of the current mesh size and make determinations
,in various mesh sizes. Other issues to be considered in the
study will be the overall effect of the nets on the environ-
ment. I filed HB 741 with the belief that rules and authority
should be based on scientific and biological data. Currently
this data does not exist. Upon completion of this 2 year
study, the compiled data will prove the effects of the current
mesh size and will reveal any changes needed to protect the
economy, the environment and the people.



State Representative



Voter Approved Indigent Care Surtax:
This bill was passed unanimously and gives counties with a
population of 50,000 or less the ability to decide through voter
referendum to impose a half cent tax to help fund indigent care
and medical facilities.
Recreational Licenses and Permits:
I sponsored legislation that will give our military personnel the
ability to purchase a military gold sportsmen's license for $18.50
that will be all inclusive for fishing and hunting. This is a small
token of our appreciation for the risks they take to secure the
freedom of all citizens.
A Study of the Mesh Size of Nets:
A constitutional amendment in 1994 limited the size of nets to
500 square feet. The Commission rule limited the mesh size to
a 2 inch stretch, Allowing commercial fisherman to use larger
mesh sizes would allow juvenile fish to escape and spawn. A
study will be brought back to the Legislature in 2007.
Uses of the School District Tax:
Legislation that would allow local school boards the flexibility
to use discretionary dollars where they feel those dollars would
be most effective. This was passed unanimously in the house,
however failed in the senate.
Statewide Distance Learning:
Continuing funding will assure the advancement of technologi-
cal and practical advances in the areas of horticulture. One of
the priorities for the district that I represent is appropriations
for this industry that provides significant training and services
with statewide impact.

Triple Crown Winner: The Earl Sande Saga

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.

One day, when Earl Sande
was in high school, one of the
friends he met at the local mer-
cantile stopped by and asked to
see him. Earl went outside,
talked for a while and then qui-
etly walked back in the school,
picked up his cap and rode off to
become a jockey. That's the way
the racing career of one of only
ten men to ever win horse rac-
ing's Triple Crown began.
The book Triple Crown
Winner: The Earl Sande Story,
Tragedy to Triumph hearkens
back to yesteryear and the Gold-
en Age of Sports. During that
time, in the 1920s, Sande
reigned as the Babe Ruth of
Horse Racing,. despite the fact
that he was tall and lanky for a
jockey at 5'6".
Sande won the Kentucky
Derby, the Preakness and the
Bellmont Stakes mounted on a
fantastic racehorse, named Gal-
lant Fox. He was also the top
money-winning jockey in 1921,
1923 and 1927. While he was
racing on the "outlaw circuit"
under the tutelage of Burr Scott,
the man who pulled him out of
the classroom, he won 23 races
in one day.
In the book, one gets to
meet all of the colorful charac-
ters like Burr Scott and Doc
Pardee, who .aivc Sande his

start in horse racing, but there is
none more colorful that Sande
The book is available for
$29.95 from 21st Century Pub-
lishers or any major bookstore
chain and was written by
Richard J. Maturi. Maturi has

also authored other biographies,
including Beverly Bayne:
Queen of the Movies and Will

by a group of agencies, in ing to
be prepared for a natural disaster
or a man-made crisis. And the lo-
cal people responded well.
The event took place at North
Florida Community College and
Madison County Memorial Hos-
pital. The situation began at about
9:00 a. m. with a simulated explo-
sion at the college technical build-
ing. About 25 "patients" were
brought to the hospital in a sher-
iff's department van and ."treat-
ments" began. As part of the dis-
aster scenario, one of the county's
ambulances was broken down
and another was out of the area.
This was why the sheriff's van,'
was used. The event lasted until
about noon.
In addition to the emergency
room, units were placed on the
hospital lawn and in the parking
area. A tent for decontamination
was set up and attendants from the
hospital decon team went to work.
Many hospital employees
were involved in the drill. The
event was conducted to see how
all agencies work together and
how improvements could be
made. The county EMS, Health
Department, Emergency Man-
agement, and local law enforce-
ment all took part. Some employ-
ees knew that a drill was to occur,
but they did not know the sched-
uled time.
The hospital received feder-
al funding for the practice run.
County EMS Director Jim
Stanley said the entire drill team
did "very well." Out-of-town
evaluators commented that some
larger towns with better facilities
have not performed as well as
the Madison County group.
Stanley said that many peo-
ple did an outstanding job, but he
especially mentioned Janice
Greene, Director of Nursing of
the hospital staff for her excep-
tional work.

I started doing small things like using the stairs and taking walks
during my lunch break. When eating meals I began making healthy
food choices and controlling my portion sizes. Because diabetes runs

my health. Now I'm on a roll to preventing type 2 diabetes! I feel
like a new woman and I have more energy for my granddaughter.

It has been closed for about 81
years. Those who once went to school
there, and their children, gather for a
reunion every two years, but mostly, it
is just a quiet building on a rural road.
It is called Carrabelle. The old one
room school building is on Little Cat
Road (Highway 146) in Madison Coun-
The name, Carrabelle, came from
two families who lived nearby, the
Bells and the Carraways.
The old Carrabelle School served
area residents from 1869-1924. A sign

teacher taught students in all grades at
the same time. History books show
photographs of several county schools
of that type during the late 19th and
early 20th centuries. Learning and
teaching in these schools must have
.been an adventure.

teachers of that era have been forgot-

Carl Sims attended the school "in a
roundabout way," according to his
wife, Elizabeth, author of A History of
Madison County, Florida. His aunt
taught at the school in the early 1920s
and her family felt that she should not
drive the'few miles to work by herself.
She took a child with her each day. In
this manner, Carl went to school, al-

and well-preserved. It is not hard at all

Magazine: Former FBI Official Names
Himself Watergate's "Deep Throat"

A former FBI official says he was the source called "Deep
Throat" who leaked secrets about President Nixon's Watergate
coverup to The Washington Post, Vanity Fair reported Tuesday.
W. Mark Felt, 91, who was second-in-command at the FBI in
the early 1970s, kept the secret even from his family until 2002,
when he confided to a friend that he had been Washington Post re-
porter Bob Woodward's source, the magazine said.
"I'm the guy they used to call Deep Throat," he told lawyer
John D. O'Connor, the author of the Vanity Fair article, the mag-
azine said in a press release.
Felt was initially adamant about remaining silent on the sub-
ject, thinking disclosures about his past somehow dishonorable.
"I don't think (being Deep Throat) was anything to be proud
of," Felt indicated to his son, Mark Jr., at one point, according to
the article. "You (should) not leak information to anyone."
Felt is a retiree living in Santa Rosa, Calif., with his daugh-
ter, Joan, the magazine said. He could not immediately be reached
for comment by The Associated Press.
Bush Labels Human Rights Report
Alleging Prisoner Abuse By
U.S. Authorities "Absurd"
President Bush called a human rights report "absurd" for crit-

icizing the United States' detention of terrorist suspects at Guan-
tanamo Bay, Cuba, and said Tuesday the allegations were made
by "people who hate America."
"It's absurd. It's an absurd allegation. The United States is a
country that promotes freedom around the world," Bush said of
the Amnesty International report that compared Guantanamo to a
Soviet-era gulag.
In a Rose Garden news conference, Bush defiantly stood by
his domestic policy agenda while defending his actions abroad.
With the death toll climbing daily in Iraq, he said that nation's
fledging government is "plenty capable" of defeating terrorists
whose attacks on Iraqi civilians and U.S. soldiers have intensi-
Bush spoke after separate air crashes killed four American
and four Italian troops in Iraq. The governor of Anbar province,
taken hostage three weeks ago, was killed during clashes between
U.S. forces and the insurgents who abducted him.
Bush said the job of the U.S. forces there is to help train
Iraqis to defeat terrorists.
"I think the Iraqi people dealt the insurgents a serious blow
when we had the elections," Bush said. "In other words, what the
insurgents fear is democracy because democracy is the opposition
of their vision."
On another foreign policy issue, Bush said he expressed con-
cerns with Russian President Vladimir Putin about legal proceed-
ings against former oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Once the
richest man in Russia, Khodorkovsky was convicted Tuesday of
fraud and tax evasion and sentenced to nine years in prison fol-
lowing a trail widely denounced as politically motivated.
Bush did not comment directly on the verdict, but said, "it
looked like he had been judged guilty prior to.having a fair trial."
The president said he has questioned whether the case shows
a backsliding away from the rule of law and democracy in Russia
and said it will "be interesting to see" how Khodorkoysky's ex-
pected appeal is handled by the government.
"Here, you're innocent until proven guilty and it appeared to
us, at least people in my administration, that it looked like he had
been judged guilty prior to having a fair trial," Bush said. "We're
watching the ongoing case."
He said it was a "reasonable'decision" to allow Iran to apply
for WTO membership as a way to advance diplomatic discussions
with Europe on Iran's nuclear program. In another hot spot, he
urged further diplomacy to curb North Korea's nuclear ambitions.
Bush opened the news conference by urging Congress to pass
his stalled energy legislation, restrain the growth of government
spending, approve the Central American Free Trade Agreement
and overhaul Social Security with a partial privatization plan. .
He declared that the economy is strong, with 3.5 million jobs
in two years and an unemployment rate of 5.2 percent. "Obvious-
ly, these are hopeful signs, but Congress can make sure the signs
remain hopeful," he said in a five-minute opening statement in the
Rose Garden.
After a bruising week on Capitol Hill, Bush urged both po-
litical parties to "set aside partisan differences", and work togeth-
Though he did not mention. tax cuts in his opening argument,
Bush said he still wants Congress to make his first-term cuts per-
manent. He also pledged not to give up on Social Security reform,
despite intense opposition on Capitol. Hill.-"The easy path is to

say, 'Oh, we don't have a problem. Let's ignore it yet again."
Judge Considering When To Open
Limbaugh Medical Records;
Defense Urges Limited Disclosure
Rush Limbaugh's attorney urged a judge Tuesday to limit the
medical records that prosecutors can review for their investiga-
tion into whether the best-selling commentator illegally pur-
chased painkillers.
Attorney Roy Black said the records, which were seized in
2003, should be reviewed by a judge before they are opened to

prosecutors."We're talking about privacy matters and privileged
matters," Black told the judge, saying prosecutors should not see
"things that have nothing do to with the items that they are inves-
Limbaugh had hoped to keep his records closed to prosecu-
tors entirely, but he lost at the Circuit Court and appellate court
levels. The Florida Supreme Court declined to hear the case.
Prosecutors seized the records after learning that Limbaugh
received about 2,000 painkillers, presci ibed b) fiobur doctors in six
months,,at a pharmacy near his Palm Beach mansion. They con-
tend that Limbaugh engaged in "doctor shopping," or illegally de-
ceived multiple doctors to receil e overlapping prescriptions.
Limbaugh has not been charged with a crime and has main-
tained his innocence. He has acknowledged he became addicted
to pain medication, blaming it on severe back pain, and took a
five-week leave from his radio show to enter a rehabilitation pro-
gram in 2003.
Assistant State Attorney James Martz said in\ estigators ha\ e
agreed not to publicly disclose the personal details contained in
the medical records. He urged Palm Beach Circuit Judge Jeffrey
A. Winikoff to act quickly because the in\ estimation already has
been stalled more than 18 months by the appeals.
"There's not an investigation in criminal law that gets better
with time. This thinghas been protracted and protracted and pro-
tracted," Martz said.
Limbaugh argued that the case threatens the privacy rights of
all Floridians a point, which drew the support of the American
Civil Liberties Union, a group the outspoken conservative has
chastised on other issues.
In his new appeal, Limbaugh wants prosecutors to see only
records related to his prescriptions. The judge gave n,. indication
when he would issue a ruling.
