During its special meeting on Octo-

sion voted unanimously to allow Twin
Oaks Juvenile Development to amend
the content of the Revenue Bonds is-
sued on their behalf in 2005. Totaling
18 million dollars, these bonds are be-
ing used to develop juvenile detention
facilities in and around Madison Coun-
"The bonds' do not encumber the
county or involve our tax base at all,"
County Attorney Tommy, Reeves re-
minded the Commissioners. "This is
really a formality to tie the two new
Twin Oak facilities to the bond," he
Revenue bonds being used for this
type of infrastructure are actually a

ject, and are not guaranteed by the
The affiliation with the county is
crucial however, as it demonstrates
their endorsement of, and intent to uti-
lize, the facilities and services created.
The relationship with the Department
of Juvenile Justice is also considered.,

lent return in today's low interest rate
climate. These issues are almost always

According to the Florida Highway
Patrol, on October 17, at 4:15 p.m., a traf-
fic crash occurred on U.S. Highway 90,
just past the Yellow Pine Road turn off.
A gray Dodge truck driven by Aaron
E. Melvin of Madison attempted to
make an illegal U-turn on U.S. 90.
Melvin drove onto the south shoulder of
U.S. 90 and came to a stop just east of the
entrance to SE Ravens Wood Way.
Melvin attempted to make a U-turn
across both lanes of traffic, and in doing
so, crossed, the path of a white Ford
Mustang driven by Christopher M. Kent
of Madison. The front of Melvin's
Dodge struck the right front of Kent's

Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Jessica Higginbotham
The damage to the left front of
Melvin's truck and the undercarriage of
the vehicle was extensive.
Following the impact, Melvin's vehi-
cle came to a rest facing northeast in the
eastbound lane. Kent's car continued
eastbound, coming to a final rest on the
south shoulder facing east.
Ronald E. Bowen, Jr. was a passen-
ger in Melvin's truck, and Anthony E.
Siekbert of Felicity, 'Ohio,was a passen-
ger. in Kent's car. Florida Highway Pa-
trol Sergeant Stewart Smith investigat-
ed the crash.
'The damage to Melvin's truck was
estimated to be $6,000. Approximately
$5,000 in damage was done to the car dri-
ven by Kent, and owned by Nancy :L.
Metacarpa. Melvin was charged with,
making an improper U-turn.

According to the Madison Police De-
partment, Earl Dewayne Davis was ar-
rested on October 18.
Corporal Chris Cooks made a rou-
tine traffic stop on a vehicle driven by
Davis, who had an active warrant out of
Leon County.
Cooks arrested Davis, and upon a
search, recovered a white substance that
appeared to be crack cocaine and a wad
of cash. The substance was field-tested
and was positive for cocaine. The cash
amounted to $220.

Davis was, arrested for possession
with intent to sell and transported to the
Madison County Jail.

The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 3A

Symphony From Nighway 90

Halloween is almost here. Children dress up in cos-
tumes and ask their neighbors for candy, while parents
take pictures,and prepare to greet neighborhood trick-
or-treaters. Extension Specialist in Home Environment
want consumers to keep festive holidays safe and fun, so
consider these Halloween safety tips.
Let's first look at costumes; since fabric can easily
catch fire if you brush too closely to a candle-lit jack-o-
lantern or luminary, make sure costumes are flame-re-
sistant. The Consumer Product Safety Commission sug-
gests you look at the label in costumes, masks, beards,
and wigs to be sure it is flame resistant. These labels
don't mean these items won't burn, it indicates the item
will resist burning and should extinguish quickly
Costumes should be short enough to prevent chil-
dren from tripping or falling. If your costume requires
a mask or face covering, you should be able to see clear-
ly and breathe easily at all times. For best visibility and
safety, consider using face paint or makeup instead of a
mask. Be extra careful when applying makeup near
Accessories such as swords or knives should be soft
and flexible. Make sure that scarves, sashes and hats
are worn securely andcdo not block your vision. Shoes
should be well fitting; high heels are not a good choice
for walking. It is also a good idea to use reflective tape
on costumes or the treat bag.
Venturing out alone is not a safe idea nor is it fun. If
children are old enough to go with a group of friends,
give them instructions as to the area they can go and a
time to return home. It is always best to have a trusted
adult accompany a group of children. Plan a route
ahead of time and bring a cell phone or a set of walkie-
talkies for communication in case you get separated
from the group.
Carry a flashlight so you can see where you're walk-
ing and so others can see you. Walk on the sidewalk
wherever possible. If there is not a sidewalk, keep away
from the edge of the road and walk facing the traffic.
Caution children to walk from house to house; running
increases the chances of falling and causing injury Rid-,
ing bikes to do trick-or-treating is strongly discouraged,
costumes can get caught:.in the wheels, gears or pedals.,
Children should not sample candy until they have
returned home. Parents need to inspect candy for torn
wrappers or other signs of tampering such as discol-
oration, pinholes, and small tears. Any opened pack-
ages and homemade food or candy should be thrown
In rural areas, many folks opt for fall festivals -
neighbors, schools'or local churches sometimes sponsor
the events. This gives families a safe alternative to en-
joy games, activities and food and eliminates wandering
through neighborhoods in the dark.
Regardless of your choice, safety should be your
first consideration before venturing out to festive activ-
ities. For more information on home environment and
safety, contact the Madison County Extension Service.

cated on page Bi incorrectly stated the times for the

What is the penalty for leaving children

Florida Statute

a motor vehicle for a peri-
od of more than 15 min-

We often take our
morning cup of coffee
onto the front deck where
we have a front row seat to
rush hour traffic. We did-
n't realize why, until a few
days ago, that this was so
entertaining. Since we are -7 .
on a higher level than the
passing cars, the sound is
rather muted and any discordant notes are phased out.
It took this purer fresh air of October mornings for us
to realize that we are really being serenaded as we sip
our coffee. We are becoming quite the discerning expert
on traffic musicals!
The sound of the tires, of course, is the back-
ground, running the gamut from the tiny cars whisper
to the big rigs rumble with the trucks, vans and.regular
cars adding all the notes in between. Then, when stac-
cato is needed, the 'hogs' chime in. Though seldom, a
few discordant notes do creep in a sudden sound of
braking or an occasional horn adds drama to the high-
way stage. And when the big event is over and traffic no
longer provides great entertainment, the critic takes
over and tries to find flaws in the actors performances.
Thankfully, though, we find few. Perhaps if that mobile

nia friends Red and Deloris Swift; Myrtice Payne and
family; Melissa Burke and husband; Charley Dickey;
Roy and Sybil Williams; and Princess Roebuck. It was
also nice to see our last years Lee Day Elvis, Teddy Mc-
Mullen who was one of the entertainers. A wonderful
day indeed.
One October highlight was the quarterly meeting
and dinner of the Suwannee River League of Cities
which was hosted by Cedar Key on October 11. Cheryl
gives Cedar Key high marks both for food wonderful
seafood and for program content and she was proud
that Lee was so well represented. Besides Town Manag-
er Cheryl; members of the Lee Town Council Doug Mc-
Nicol, President, with wife Marie; Shirley Yeager and
husband Bill; and Donna Muller with husband Pete
were present. Everyone really enjoyed the evening,
Donna and Pete so much that they stayed over a couple
of days.
Everything's not coming up roses for all of us,
though. Bobby Bembry is still having a rough time he
is presently in rehab so keep him in your prayers. Also
the preacher whom we all love, Rich Quackenbush. And
we certainly won't mind if you add us as well.
Hoping that you all have a great last week of Octo-
ber, we are already looking forward to the month of No-

says Chief Davis. "Many costumes are dark and are
very difficult to see, especially by drivers."
The Chief continued to caution by saying, "Don't ,
take or eat any unwrapped candy. It's a good idea to have
parents inspect all candies before the child is allowed to
eat it."
Traffic controls begin at 5 p.m., the same time the
Halloween Contest begins. So, those coming to the Hal-
loween Contest should find parking areas that are not lo;
cated on Range, Rutledge or Pinckney streets. Range Av-
enue will be closed between US 90 and Dade Street and
Rutledge and Pinckney street will be closed between
Shelby Avenue and Horry Avenue.
"And, be absolutely certain not to park blocking any-
body in. Wreckers will tow away those who block other
cars in." states Chief Davis. "Parking is going to be a
premium. Be sure to park legally and in designated
parking areas."
Extra officers will be on duty throughout the city,
but the Chief recommends that all trick or treating be
done in the well-lit downtown area. Davis is also asking
that children not go into the residential areas after the
downtown event is over. This will help to insure a'safe
and enjoyable Halloween.
Residents who would rather set up a lawn chair or a
table and enjoy "Trick or Treating" in 'the city should
contact the Madison Police Department at 850-973-5077
'or the Chamber of Commerce at 850-973-2788 to register
for a free booth location. Deadline for registration is
Friday October 26.:' "

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
An outpouring of love, generosity and compassion was bestowed
upon Kevin Payne and his children on Saturday, October 20.
A single father, living in Greenville. Payne has had a struggle since
the mother of his children died in March. Payne is a laborer at Flori-
da Plywoods in Greenville. where he makes only $8.25 an hou;, work-
ing five days a week.
Sebretia Livingston, the mother of Payne's two children, was only
34 years old when she died of cancer
i n March.

Payne said that his daugh-
terl Makia, had been de-
pressed since her mom
died. One day, she burst
out crying and he asked
her what was wrong.
"She told me she was
thinking about her mama and

l appreciate
I everyone that 4
helped me," Payne said.
"The Lord has answered j
my prayers,"

she was remembering all the memo-
ries they shared together;" he said.
Payne said that he's committed to helping his family
"I have these beautiful kids, and I love them and will do all I can
to help them improve," he said.
Since Payne makes so little, he doesn't have enough money to
make the mortgage payments on his home and car He also has
trouble paying his utility bills and for daycare for his year-old son,
After three months of his mortgage going unpaid, the United
Way stepped in and offered to help him out. Despite the help with
the mortgage, he still did not have enough money to pay for cloth-
ing and footwear for himself and his children.
State Rep. Curtis Richardson showed up for an event at
Greenville Elementary School, sponsored by the Madison Coun-
ty Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Coalition. Dw'ing the
event. Richardson learned about the plight of the Payne family
His immediate response was the epitome of sheer compassion.
Rachael Favors, a staff member in Richardson's office, had
learned about the problems the Payne family had been having,
so she began calling organizations and social services for help
and then called The Tallahassee Democrat.
An article hit the paper, and tons of calls came in for help.
j Richardson's compassion was also highlighted, as he made
arrangements for and held a surprise birthday party with all
of the trimmings, for eight-year-old Makia Payne on October
19. The party was held at Greenville Elementary School.
On Saturday morning, Richardson arrived in Greenville
and personally delivered donations that had been generated
by the story in The TallahasseeDemocrat.
Richardson was assisted with unloading the donations,
which included a bicycle for Makia, as well as numerous
other items, including: clothes, cash, gift cards, diapers, a
stroller, stuffed animals, toys, a puzzle and a scooter.
One sorority in Tallahassee pledged $1.000 to the Payne
family Imam Rashad Mujahid. of
the local mosque in Tal-
Slahassee, sent cash

Moral Support Pouring In Like Rain For

Lee Youth Program Fundraiser

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The rain was definitely
a disappointment and pre-
vented the Lee Garage
Sale fundraiser from hit-
ting its goals for the event;
call it Lee 0, Mother Na-
ture 1. But to the Lee offi-
cials, including Town
Manager Cheryl Archam-
bault, the effort scored a
huge victory nonetheless.
"From the moment the
Lee Mayor and Town
Council decided to an-
nounce that the youth pro-
gram initiative would be
officially kicked off with
the Building Blocks Sum-
mer Camp, the communi-
ty already scored big.
With leaders like these
spearheading such an in-
credibly important pro-
ject, one "rain-out" isn't
going to end the season,"
Archambault explained.
"We've already received
several calls from civic
and government leaders
around the county offer-
ing their expertise," Ar-
chambault added.
The need to support
children's programs, from
those targeting sports and
recreational activities to
those providing alterna-
tives for at-risk situations,
remains a priority'
throughout Madison
County; therefore the
summer camp is being de-
signed for both. So even
though this particular
program originated in
Lee, the need it fills cer-
tainly did not. Organizers,.
believe everyone can and
should get involved for ob-
vious reasons and maybe
a few that aren't so appar-
Perhaps a high school,
college or even a profes-
sional athlete wants to
give something back to
Madison in the off season,

fiduciary responsibility of
banks and brokers prevent
them from offering these
issues to individual in-
vestors due to the suitabil-
ity caveats governing the
investment industry
"The passion and vi-
sion of Donny Read, CEO
of Twin Oaks Juvenile De-
velopment, are key rea-
sons I joined the Twin
Oaks team," said Sean
Golder, Executive Director
of Greenville Hills Acade-
my, the group's 152-bed fa-
cility in Madison County
Golder has an extensive
work history with the De-
partment of Juvenile Jus-
tice, and understands the
difficulties in rehabilitat-
ing youth offenders.
In a perfect world, we
would be put out of busi-
ness for lack of new of-
fenders, Benjie Read, CFO
of Twin Oaks, stated. "But
as long as the services are
needed, we intend to set
the standard," Read added.
Greenville Hills Acade-
my serves as a great exam-
ple of turning these good
intentions into reality
Employing a staff of al-
most 250, including over a
dozen licensed therapists,
an in-house medical staff,
and a 40 bed component
built solely for the mental-
ly challenged, GHA is the

largest of six Twin Oaks
projects. The other facili-
ties are located in Jackson
and Liberty Counties.

their time. Maybe a teen
has run into a little trou-
ble at school and adminis-
trators offer to erase the
slate by volunteering to
read to youngsters, Build-
ing Blocks welcomes them
also. Consider the day-
care owner and indepen-
dent caregivers in the
community who receive
many of the school age
kids out for the summer
but don't have a construc-
tive program for them,
again Building Blocks is a
great place where they
can actually be worked
into the program for the
ultimate win-win. "There
are unlimited possibilities
and we intend to get them
organized and implement-
ed," says Archambault.

Although the fundrais-
er got rained out, The
First Annual Lee Garage
Sale to benefit the youth
of Madison County was a
success. In spite of the
rain, there are several
participants who deserve
huge kudos however,
starting with the Lonnie
Jolson Band and all the
live entertainment donat-
ed by Betty Everett and
WMAE Madison Super-
visor of Elections, Jada
Williams, stuck it out
and treated the kids to
ice cream. And, the Lee
Town staff, including
Leonard and Janice
Miller, as well as Mike
Register, deserves 'big
thanks as well for their
time and efforts.

The idea was simple:
raise money and aware-

donated to the UWBB.
This is ,where
Brown got in on the ac-.

His personal donation

WAIT Program Launches At Middle School

Tracey Kelly in-
structs the eighth grade
girls at MCCS.

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The wait for WAIT is over. On Tuesday, October 23, the first
class of eighth graders at Madison County Central School was in-
troduced to an innovative and effective abstinence program that
starts with the question, "Why Am I Tempted?", or WAIT, for
WAIT Training is unlike the repetitive and controversial
brand of sex education. The aim is exclusively to teach love and
marriage with sex, with modules on character formation, healthy
relationships, positive youth development, marriage preparation.
and life skills. Basically, WAIT Training limits sex education to
declaring that the best choice is to wait and prepare for marriage.
Tracey Kelly, working out of Madison County High School,
and Elmite Cantey, working out of the Excel School, share the in-
structor role. Kelly teaches the unique curriculum to the eighth
grade girls each Tuesday for nine weeks, while Cantey handles
the boys.
"The classes take place during PE and are unlike anything
I've ever seen. The program is really geared for kids their age,"
Kelly noted. Both Kelly and Cantey are very optimistic consider-
ing the track record of the program, so hopefully the wait is over
for a solution to this long-term concern.

grade boys at MCCS.

Happenings At First Bap
*Henceforth, this name will be used
with an apology for nine years
of not doing so.
By Nell Dobbs
"The Lord has promised good to me.
His Word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures." Verse 4 of
'"Amazing Grace'
Are we not so blessed! Indeed we are!
Judy Phillips of the Pulpit Search
Committee continues asking prayer for
God's man to be made known to us. The list
is narrowing down.
A very interesting day as we had a
roundup for Sunday School with a high
goal and though it wasn't met, it was a
blessed day in every way and we give God
thanks. Jesus taught that righteousness is
as much a matter of the heart and attitude
as our actions are.
Beautiftil flowers were provided Sun-
day by Bobby and Debbie Kinsey in honor
of their dad's birthday Mr. Simon Kinsey
Earnest prayers for all their family as
there is sickness among them.
A song was thoroughly enjoyed by
Martha Beggs' and Martha Register's Chil-
dren I's Sunday School class. Bless them
For the first time, Pastor Heard
preached a message to the children and he
continued the same theme to us about the
Lost Sheep, the Lost Coin and, really the
Lost Day
Debbie Bass touched us, singing, "To
God Be the Glory."
Dan Campbell, as Deacon of the Week,
gave the offertory prayer.
Liane Wakefield played "Nothing But
the Blood of Jesus" on the piano.
Chancel Choir sang "Old Time Reli-
Our sermon was "God's Love for the
Lost." Preacher began by telling us about
how God does indeed care for His own lost
ones. As Dorothy and he were going to his
home in Mississippi, he missed the right
exit and looked at a map and found a coun-
try road. As they traveled, they were be-
hind a school bus. A tiny tiny little girl got
off-alone. The driver drove on. As they
drove on, Dorothy looked back and said,
"She's crying. You've got to turn around."
He did. Dorothy got out of the car and
talked and walked along with her and he
drove behind them. They had not seen a

Stist Church of Madison
house but went on and met the mother, dri-
ving to get her. The sister was sick and did-
n't go to school and the bus was early It
could have been a sad, sad story Thank the
Lord, it wasn't! One couldn't help but wish
the driver had been more "with it." What a
responsibility they have and we pray God's
wisdom and care upon them! Amen!
We closed, singing, "Ring the Bells of
Heaven" (what a blessed song) and had
blessing for lunch (a very good lunch; do-
nations will, be added to the Organ Fund)
and the benediction.
Monday night, a large crowd met for
Brotherhood Supper and Meeting with
special speaker Ernie Stevenson. He is
North Florida Director of Fellowship of
Christian Athletes.
Nita McCullough Circle met at 10 a.m.
Tuesday, Senior Adult Choir met at
Dowling Park.
Continue to pray for the many, many ill
ones: Teresa Gallegos in South Georgia Re-
hab.; Mrs. Hazel Walker in Madison Hospi-
tal; Preacher John Dodson, Circuit Rider
of Founders' Day of Hickory Grove, who
fell off his mule, had stitches at the E-R,
but was able to preach both services on
Sunday; Bob Bembry who underwent hip
surgery at the VA Hospital in Gainesville
and is now doing rehab at Madison Nurs-
ing Center; little baby Jackson Taylor-
great-grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph
Cruce; our secretary's mother-in-law, Han-
nah (Lou) Shannon and all others.
Continued birthday wishes: Nita Fico
and Teresa Gallegos, both 10/24; Bill Ham-
rick and Kayla Knowles, 10/26; Todd Gor-
don, 10/28; Eddie Bell. and Jordan Robin-
son, 10/29; and Butch Baker, 10/30!
If you have an extra coat to share,
there are many needs.
We ask comfort for all sad, sad ones-
the Newberry Family; the Gandy Family;
the Dwaine Williams family; and all oth-
May we give thanks to God for seeking
the lost! Our Dad often sang, "There were
ninety and nine that safely lay in the shel-
ter of the fold, but one was out of the hills
away, far off from the streets of gold, away
on the mountains. wild and bare, away
from the tender Shepherd's care, Rejoice,
Rejoice, I have found My sheep!" God re-
joices when one is found.

Blessed [is] the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his :
' delight [is] in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day' and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that
bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. -Psalms 1:1-3

(NAPSI)-When buying
or selling a home, people
are often surprised to find
how appropriate an old
maxim-"The more things
change, the more they re-
main the same"-can be.
That's because, no matter
the age, style, size or loca-
tion of a house, there are
common problems that
are likely to turn up dur-
ing a home inspection.
Knowing what these
potential defects are, and
preparing to deal with:

them, is key to making the
most of the buying experi-
ence. Dan Steward, presi-
dent of Pillar To Post,
North America's leading
provider of home inspec-
tion ser-vices, identifies
these problems as the 10
most common:
1. Structural dam-
age: As the foundation set-
tles, it can knock door-
ways, walls and support
beams out of alignment.
The end result could make
the entire house a safety


Financing Available Mom,

Having a home inspec-
tion can help a buyer find
out about potential mainte-
nance problems and repair

2. Leaky roof: Roofs
may leak due to poor con-
struction or aging materi-
als. The question is, will
the subsequent repairs be
minor (replacing shin-
gles) or major (replacing
the entire roof)?
3. Faulty wiring: Old-
er homes often need elec-
trical upgrades, especially
if you plan on installing a
lot of electronic equip-
ment (computers; exercise
machines) or a pool or hot
tub. When electrical cir-
cuits are not overloaded,
the risk of fire is reduced.
4. Defective heating
system: If it's an older sys-
tem, it can pay to upgrade
to one that uses less ener-
gy and is more efficient. If
you've got gas or oil heat, a
carbon monoxide detector
is advisable.
5. Poor drainage: If

The Florida Forest

when the citizens of Tay-

ed to stage a countywide
"Pine Tree Festival" as an
educational tool to reduce
forest fires that were crip-
pling the county's econom-
ic base-the timber indus-

tival grew and accom-
plished its aim so well that
by 1965, Taylor County
could boast the lowest fire
record in the nation.
In 1965, Taylor County
was the top tree producing

Florida Governor Hayden
Burns and the Florida
Cabinet proclaimed Tay-
lor County the "Tree Capi-

Governor Burns, the Pine
Tree Festival then became

10 Ways To Save Gas
By Jessica Higginbotham
GreenePublishing, Inc
1. Start off slower gunning it wastes gas
2. Slow it down the faster you drive, the more gas you
3. Tune itup
4. Change oil regularly
5. Stop idling idling adds 50 percent to fuel costs
6. Check tire pressure regularly Under-inflated tires in-
crease fuel consumption
7. Lighten your load
8. Cut back on your driving all together walk, cycle, or
even carpool
9. Trade in the SUV- smaller cars get better gas mileage
10. Buy a fuel-efficient vehicle new, fuel-efficient ve-
hicles save hundreds of dollars in fuel costs per year
Not everyone can rush out.and buy a new car, or even
trade in the hefty SUV on a whim of energy and fuel conser-
vation, so numbers nine and ten are probably out of the
question. However, numbers one through eight are perfect-
ly plausible.
Gunning it at a green light doesn't shave off much time
from a normal commute. But the driver feels way cool when
he's up ahead of everyone else, right? Not really Gunning it
on the green wastes almost four times as much gas as just
taking off slow.
With gas prices the way they still are, slowing down is a
great way to save gas. For all the speed demons, going faster
takes a lot more gas than just cruising at the speed limit.
Regular tune-ups keep cars running efficiently If
there's even the smallest little problem with mechanical in-
ner-workings, the car might not be getting the gas mileage it
Changing the oil in the vehicle is an important step to
keep the engine from blowing up. Additionally oil degrades
with age, so it's better to change the oil every 3000 miles or 3
months. Furthermore, idling for more than three minutes
adds 50 percent to regular fuel costs. Point if the car is
stopped at one of those really long trains, put it in park and
shut it off!
There are plenty of horror stories about under or over-
inflated tires blowing out, but aside from the safety issue, un-
der-inflated tires increase fuel consumption! They also wear
down on the treads of the tire, and have to be replaced more
Lightening the load in a car goes a long way to save gas.
That roof rack yep, the thing that rarely gets used? It in-
creases fuel costs by a bunch. Remove it Even an empty one
kills the MPG rating on a car
It's easy to get in the car and drive down a long driveway
to get the mail, or even to the convenience store that's less than
a half-mile away It's really simple to get the car cranked up for
no reason at all, but it wastes gas. For those short dri-
ves, walk, cycle, or even take a bus. Carpooling is a great al-
ternative for traveling long distances. everybody saves, every-
body wins.
Fuel costs are still super high, and there are plenty more
ways to save gas and cut costs. It's always important to main-
tainlow costs!

Do-It-Yourself Tips
Here's the most important advice we can give:
Your goal isn't to fix your car.
That's right.
Your first and most important goal is to walk away
from your car at the end of the day with all digits, ap-
pendages and eyebrows intact.
Your second goal is to not blow up anything or any-
one else.
Your third goal is to not break something that's not
already broken.
Your fourth goal is to fix what's broken.
Here, then, is our advice for successfully achieving
all four of the Car Talk Do-It-Yourself goals.
1. Start simple.
Start with the easiest repairs first. Don't dive right
into rebuilding your transmission. You'll gain confi-
dence, learn how to use tools and begin to understand
how everything fits together on your car.
Here are some great repairs for novice shade tree
mechanics, in order of increasing difficulty:
Replace the wiper blades
Change the air filter
Change a headlight
Change a battery
Replace the spark plugs
Change the oil
Change belts
If you have to jack up your car to get underneath
it, under no circumstances should you use the flimsy
jack that came with the car. And never, ever get under
your car unless it's supported by approved jack stands.
(Unless, of course, you can get your mother-in-law to
hold the car up. In which case, we'd like to see photos.)
Finally, when you're getting started, try to avoid re-
pairs that involve contorting yourself into an uncom-
fortable position, which can make a repair vastly more

Why You Should Care About The Farm Bill

By Dan Charles, David
Pignanelli and Maria
With its less-than-scin-
tillating name, the farm
bill is not the type of legis-
lation that makes Ameri-
cans sit up and take no-
tice. But perhaps it should.
First enacted during
the Great Depression, the
bill is a sweeping spending
plan for most things agri-
cultural. It authorizes sub-
sidies to farmers and food
stamps for the poor, and af-
fects everything from
what we eat to how we
trade with other nations.
The bill comes up for
reauthorization every five,
years, although it some-
times takes Congress an
extra year or two to finish
its work. The last time, in
2002, lawmakers were pre-
occupied with the newly
begun war in Afghanistan,
and the looming war in
Iraq; the bill garnered lit-
tle attention outside the
so-called farm states.
This time. around,
sparks are already flying.
In late July, the House
passed its reauthorized
version of the bill a
massive, $290 billion
spending plan that would
keep existing agricultural
subsidies in place through
2012, while also adding
new ones: for growers of
specialty crops, the settle-
ment of discrimination
suits, and an expansion of
the food stamp program,
among other things.
The politics surround-

ing the farm bill are com-
plicated and often do not
follow party lines. Region-
al interests dominate, as
legislators from Louisiana
defend subsidies for rice
farmers, while those from
low-income districts sup-
port funding for food
stamps. This year, howev-
er, partisan controversy

the broader rural econo-
my because it cuts de-
mand for fertilizer and

Food Stamps and
Nutritional Programs
In a Nutshell: This
program accounts for
most of the money in the
farm bill. It provides fi-
nancial assistance for
low-income families to
purchase food. The House
version renames the pro-'
gram the "Secure Supple-
mental Nutrition Assis-
tance Program." It would
eliminate paper stamps in
favor of an electronic
transfer system.
Supporters Say: The
switch to electronic pro-
cessing will save the pro-;
gram from counterfeiting
and fraud. The House bill
also raises the minimum:
benefit for recipients and
increases funding for the
program that provides
fresh fruits and vegeta-
bles to. schools. The
House bill pays for this -
arid other spending, in-
'creases in the bill by
eliminating a tax loop-
hole that allows U.S. sub-
sidiaries of foreign-
owned companies to
avoid paying some taxes
by shifting their profits to:

other countries.
Critics Contend: The
bill is too costly; what's
more, eliminating the tax
loophole amounts to one
of the largest tax increas-
es in history
International Food Aid
In a Nutshell: The,
bill authorizes the Food
for Peace program, under
which the government
buys food commodities in
the U.S., turns them over
to private aid organiza-
tions such as C4tholic Re-
lief Services, and pays.to,
ship the food to countries
where it's needed. The
U.S. spends nearly $1 bil-
lion each year on Food for,
Supporters Say: The
program is a humanitari-
an success story. The U.S.
is the world's largest
donor of food, 'and Food
for Peace shipments have
kept people from starv-
'ing. That's because of
political support from
farmers, shippers and aid
organizations, all of
whom benefit.
Critics Contend: The
program wastes much of
its money Under current
rules, food must be
bought in' the U.S. and
shipped abroad, even
though studies show that,
in many cases, the food
would be cheaper and get
to its destination much
more quickly if the U.S.
bought it closer to where
it's needed. In some cases,
private aid groups sell the
food in foreign markets to
raise cash. Critics say
that's terribly inefficient,

Hickory Mound Improvements Highlight Partnership

Between FWC And Ducks Unlimited

The improvements to the Hicko-
ry Mound Impoundment were offi-
cially recognized Oct. 16 when mem-
bers of the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
and Ducks Unlimited unveiled a sign
at the area commemorating the pro-
ject's partnerships.
The project was an upgrade of
the impoundment dike and water
control structures.
"The reconstruction of the im-
poundment dike was designed to al-
low this structure to withstand a 50-
year, storm event by drastically re-
ducing the number of breaches that
have occurred in the past," ex-
plained David Nicholson, district bi-
ologist at the FWC Big Bend Field Of-
fice in Perry
The major portions of. the con-
struction project included the instal-
lation of two 1,000-foot concrete ge-
oweb spillways, four 5-foot by 5-foot
box culverts, one aluminum water
control structure, and the placement
of rip-rap material along approxi-
mately 3,600 feet of the dike as rein-
forcement in areas susceptible to
storm erosion in the past.
"These upgrades also give biolo-
gists better control over the flow of
water into and out of the impound-
ment, allowing FWC staff to better
manage waterfowl and other wildlife
species. This increased management
ability will produce higher quality
recreational opportunities." Nichol-
son explained.
During the ceremony, members
of the FWC and Ducks Unlimited
spoke of the close working relation-
ship between the two agencies and
the obstacles they overcame on the
project. The ceremony concluded
with an unveiling of a sign listing all
those entities who contributed to
making the project a reality.
This project was funded by FWC,
Ducks Unlimited, Taylor County,
and grants received from the Nation-
al Fish and Wildlife Foundation and

through the North- American' Wet-
lands Conservation Act, Nicholson
Nicholson gave a brief history of
the impoundment during the cere-
"It was constructed in 1968 as a
joint venture between Buckeye Cel-
lulose Corporation, the landowner at
the time, and the Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission
(GFC), currently the FWC," Nichol-
son said.
The primary goals were to en-
hance waterfowl habitat and water-
fowl hunting opportunities. The im-
poundment also provided many oth-
.er recreational opportunities includ-
ing crabbing, fishing and bird watch-
In response to damages caused
by Hurricane Kate in 1985, the GFC
joined with Ducks Unlimited for the
cooperative maintenance and man-
agement of Hickory Mound Im-
"In 1986, the Nature Conservan-
cy purchased.those lands that make
up the bulk of the Big Bend Wildlife
Management Area, which included
Hickory Mound. These lands were
subsequently transferred to the
State of Florida in 1987," Nicholson
Over the years the impoundment
has been plagued by damages caused
by tropical systems:
March 1993: Storm of the Century
August 1994: Tropical Storm Beryl
June 1995: Hurricane Allison
October 1995: Hurricane Opal
September 1998: Hurricane Earl
September 2004: Hurricane Jeanne
"Because of damage caused by
these storms, as well as vandalism to
the water control structures, the
management of the area for water-
fowl had been greatly hampered. To
combat this, in 2001, the FWC con-
tracted with Turnbull Environmen-
tal, Inc. to develop a feasibility study
for upgrading the impoundment lev-

ee to withstand a 50-yeari-storm
event. The results of this study were
then used to develop construction
plans for the upgrades," Nicholson
In .April 2005, a contract was
awarded to Carter's Contracting Ser-
vices;, Inc. of Andalusia, Ala,, and
construction began soon thereafter
"The problems with sttims con-
tinued." Nicholson said t.n Jly
2005, when construction wa. about
one-third completed and the' .im
poundment was in a vuAlnerable
state, Hurricane Dennis made land-
fall in Pensacola. Although Athis
storm remained well offshore of the
Big Bend region, its .path:" and
strength' resulted, in considerable
damage from tidal surge all along
the Big Bend coast Tidal surge at
the impoundment was estimated to
be more than 9 feet and resulted in
extensive damage."
As a result of the damage and an
active hurricane season, construc-
tion was suspended. until hurricane
season ended. FWC worked with
FEMA to recover some funds for reM
pairs, and Anderson Columbia as-
sisted by providing a storage locar
tion for the excess material and.de-
bris removed from the dike.
Construction was completed in
June 2006, and the area reopened to
the public for recreational use, :FWC
worked with' Ducks Unlimited. to
draft. an updated management ali
for the impoundment that still focus-
es on waterfowl habitat 'but also
takes into account wading birds,
blue crabs and the marine fishery to
maximize the area's potential.
"Even though the upgrades to
the impoundment have not been test-
ed by tropical systems, we feel this
project is a success. Vandalism has
been minimal, and the new water
control structures are operating effli
ciently," Nicholson said. "This is a
great resource for the visitors, and
residents of Taylor County --.

Frogs, Turtles, Snakes And

Other Herps Are In Trouble

By Mikel Williams,
Soil Conservationist, Natural.
Resources Conservation Service,
Madison County.
Before you say you are not disap-
pointed that frogs, turtles, snakes and
other herps, as they are called, are in,
trouble, read on. They may be among the
most misunderstood of species; most are
not nearly as dangerous as people fear
them to be. In fact, they are beneficial in
the chain of life, eating insects, rodents
and other pests. But they are in decline in
the United States and worldwide, largely
because of the loss or degradation of
Amphibians have been dubbed the
aquatic "canary of the coal mine" be-
cause, they reveal subtle declines in envi-
ronmental health. There are specific
habitat needs of different species of am-
phibians and reptiles, and you could help
those species with .specific habitats. But
generally, you can help herp habitats by,
improving habitat for wildlife in general.
Some of the steps that help most
wildlife species, including herps, are:
1) Keep or establish natural vegeta-
tion along ponds, streams, wetlands, crop
fields and wherever else possible to pro-
tect theland and provide food and cover
for wildlife..- 2) Large habitat areas are
more valuable to herps than a series of.
