Teenager Critically

Injured In Dirt

Bike Accident

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A 17-year-old was critically injured
in a dirt bike accident on Friday
evening, February 9, at approximately
According to reports, Stephen
Rusinko was riding on a dirt bike
when he ran into a dump truck that
was parked on the property that he
was on.
Rusinko, a sophomore who plays
junior varsity baseball at the high
school, had stopped at Cooper Welch's
equipment shelter to ask him to weld
something. Welch, Rosinko and a few
other friends talked around a campfire
that was located in a field used for
parking equipment. Cooper left to go
back to the barn and a few minutes lat-
er, Rusinko got on a dirt bike without
Cooper knowing and rode it to the
barn where Cooper was. They went
back to the field where Welch told him
to park the bike. Rather than parking,
he drove off into the dark.
Welch and his friends, Wil Culpep-
per, Bryant Tuten, Jameson Thomp-
son, and Skyler Thompson, called for
Rusinko to come back, but it was too
late. According to reports, they heard
a sixth gear change when, suddenly,
they heard a thud. They went to see
what happened and found Rusinko.
Welch and the Thompson boys saw
that Rusinko was choking on his blood.
and turned him over to a sitting-up po-
sition. Then they'put Rusinko in his
own truck.
Cooper, a member of the Lee Vol-
unteer Fire Department, has learned
to react the way he was taught by the
other members of the department. Al-
though he was taught not to move a
victim from an accident, if they hadn't
moved Stephen, he may have died
right there.
Wil Culpepper called his father,
Jack, and told nim what had hap-
pened. Jack tAd the boys not to move
Rusinko, but when Wil told him they
already had, Jack instructed them to
head toward State Road 6 and wait for
law enforcement and ambulances to
In route to Madison, Welch kept
pressure on Rusinko's wounds.
"Though it's never recommended
you move a victim, this is one of the
times when it might have helped, be-
cause if the boys had left Stephen
there, he would probably have died," a
medical professional told this' reporter.
Welch took Rusinko to meet the
ambulance at the intersection of State
Road 6 and Highway 90, then rode in
the ambulance to Lanier Field with
him, where Rusinko was put on a heli-
copter and flown to Tallahassee.
Reese Thomas, of the Lee Volun-
teer Fire Department arrived at TMH
to lend his support to Stephen's dad.

Jillian Uphold's Death Is A Mystery

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Doctors know that a blood clot that
went to her heart killed Jillian Alesia
Uphold. They don't know what caused
it, though.
Doctors thought at first that it
could have been food poisoning but say
that it could have been a ruptured ap-
"They don't know," Jillian's moth-
er, Kimilee Uphold said.
Kimilee Uphold said that doctors at
South Georgia Medical Center in Val-
dosta had given Jillian three blood
clots while doing blood work on her.

One of the clots apparently went to Jil-
lian's heart.
Jillian was a home-schooled 18-
year-old senior, who was the apple of
her family's eye.
"She was my baby," Kimilee said.
Jillian was the youngest of Tony
and Kimilee Uphold's four children.
She had one brother, Tony Uphold, Jr.,
and two sisters, Julie Staley and
Jacqueline Parnell.
Jillian passed away Thursday
evening, February 7, at 7:35 p.m. at
Shands Hospital in Gainesville. Her fu-
neral was held Sunday, February 10, at
Beggs Funeral Home in Madison.

On June 5, 1925, the
Madison Enterprise
Recorder ran a story an-
nouncing the Miss Madi-
son contest. According to
the article, seven busi-
nesses, including the E-R,

that comprised the Madi-

sored the contest.
In order to nominate
and vote for contestants,
residents were required
to visit these merchants,
who in turn used an elab-
orate scoring system to

convert patronage into
votes. This elaborate
scoring system yielded
big numbers for the win-

received 14,151,015 votes.

Hudson: Proud To Be A Centenarian

By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
In Biblical days. it
was quite common to call
oneself a centenarian. In
modern times it takes a
bit more to live to see 100
years. With current aver-
age life expectancies
across the world being
less than 100, becoming a
centenarian is something
to be proud of, indeed.
Every culture has its
unique way of honoring
their centenarians, as
longevity is a sign of wis-
dom in many ways. Madi-
son County is blessed
with its own precious few
centenarians. This article
is in honor of them.
When celebrating a
birthday in Sweden,
chances are one will hear
sung to them "May he
live one hundred years."
If turning another year
in Italy, they may state
"cento di questi giorni"
or "A hundred of these
days." to wish 100 more
birthdays to come. Jew-
ish tradition wishes a
person "May you live as
long as Moses" or 120

years, and in Iran the
term "May you live to be
120 years old" is used as
common blessing. The
Polish say "Sto lat" an-
other wish of 100 years
and the Hindus bless the
people who touch the feet

of elders with the hope of
100 years of life. The Chi-
nese emperors were
hailed to live 10,000 years,
but that may be a bit
In the United States,
it has become customary
for centenarians to re-
ceive a letter from the
President upon reaching

that milestone birthday
as a token of congratula-
tions on their longevity.
NBC's The Today
Show has also joined the
celebration by naming
centenarians across the
nation on air since 1983.
According to Hallmark
company there have been
approximately 85,000
"Happy 100th Birthday"
cards in the year 2007,
however, some of those
may have been posers.
Here in Madison
County, there are at least
four of these esteemed
citizens that have reached
their 100th birthday More
amazingly, some are also
housemates. Many reside
in Lake Park of Madison
and were introduced to
the paper recently To let
these residents know how
appreciated they are, this
article is written as its
own version of "Happy
100th Birthday" to you,
and may you have many
more to come.

Woman Attacked

And Mauled By

Pit Bulls

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Becky Williamson Wimberly, for-
merly of Madison, was attacked and
mauled by her son's pit bulls at her res-
idence in Mayo on January 27.
According to reports, several of the
dogs had gotten loose from their pen on
the back of the property and attacked
her. Following a call for help, the
Lafayette County Sheriff's Office and
Lafayette County EMS personnel ar-
rived at the scene to find Wimberly, 58,
at the door of her greenhouse, covered
in blood from wounds on her arms and
Discoloration was caused in Wim-
berly's feet and lips, due to the massive
amount of blood she had lost.
Wimberly's son, Benjamin, shot and
killed the dogs that had gotten loose.
Wimberly was flown by helicopter
to Shands Hospital in Gainesville,
where she remains after treatment for
her wounds. Doctors also treated her for
rabies as a precautionary measure.

The water tower is part of the re-

perhaps its greatest gem, NFCC. From

In Their Own Words e wo

Cakes, Gift Certificates

And Mayhaw Jelly

One day last week, I was pleasantly surprised when
a very nice woman brought a 10-layer chocolate cake
into the office for me. The woman had complimented
me on a column that I had written a few weeks before,
but the cake really surprised me. I shared it with the
staff here at the office and boy that cake went fast!
Thank you!
Mary Ellen Greene had told me that the same
woman Lilla Howerton had sent her a very nice
card a few weeks before that. She said she felt honored
by the card the same way that I had by the cake.
Throughout the years, I have realized that there are
people like Lilla Howerton, who do things, not for
praise or recognition, but because they feel that they
can make a difference in a person's day or in. a person's
Stuart Fenneman is another individual like that.
She told me a few months ago that she was sorry that
she had not attended the housewarming for my fami-
ly's newly constructed house. She sent a gift certificate
in the mail, which went to buying something very nice
for the home. I haven't had a chance to send her a gift
card, but I want to say "thank you" in this column to
her. Anyone who knows her can tell you how special
she is. Thank you, Mrs. Fenneman.
Nell Dobbs is another person who reaches out to
others in love and tenderness. Although she was nurs-
ing her ailing husband, Marjell, while my father was in
the hospital in Gainesville, she packed a sandwich bag
with goodies for one of the trips that my brother, sister
and I were taking to visit him one day She also has giv-
en me mayhaw jelly and cumquats. Thank you, Mrs.
Lee and Annelle Bishop are two more people with
giving hearts that don't expect credit in return. I be-
lieve it was either the first or second night in our new
home and they came to visit, bringing a delicious cake
with them. I don't believe I ever got a chance to thank
them, either. Thank you, Lee and Annelle!
James Phillips is another person with a heart of
gold.1 cannot tell you the times that he and his wife,
Margie, have blessed people, including myself and my
family. They are special people and deserve praise and
honor for all the good they d in their chtirbh rid: com-'
This list of people is not meant to embarrass any-
one by telling of their good deeds and good hearts. This
list is also not nearly complete. I'm sure that you know
of others. I could go on naming people like this until
the list grew to over 100 people who don't let their right
hand know what their left hand is doing. They are peo-
ple who are not expecting anything in return for doing
good. I just listed a few people today. I am going to chal-
lenge myself, in Jesus' name, to try and follow their ex-

In County $30 Out-of-County $38
(State & local taxes included)

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Isn't it amazing that George Carlin, a comedian
known for some of the crudest adult humor could write
something so very eloquent...and so very appropriate
George his own words.
The paradox of our time in history is that we have
taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways,
but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have
less. We buy more, but en- ,
joy less. We have bigger o, b ,
houses and smaller fami-
lies, more conveniences,
but less time. We have
more degrees but less
sense, more knowledge,
but less judgment, more
experts, yet more prob-
lems, more medicine, but
less wellness.
We drink too much,
smoke too much, spend too
recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry,
stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV
too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our
values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life.
We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all
the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing
the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer
space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but
not better things.
We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've
conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write
more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less.
We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We, build more
computers, to hold more information, to produce more
copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion,
big men and small character, steep profits and shallow
relationships. These are the days of two incomes but
more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These
are days of. quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway
morality one, night stands, overweight bodies, and pills
that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a
time when there is much in the showroom window and
nothing in the stockroom. A time when the technology
can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can
choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete...
Reoiember; spend some time with your loved ones,
because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up
to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow
up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to
you, because that is the only treasure you can give with
your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.
Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and
your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an
embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside
of you.
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment
for someday that person willn not be there again.
Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time
to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we
take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Senior Moments

Everyone can relate to this title, right? Especially my
sister-in-law Janice and I who often find ourselves going
'totally blank. We both enjoymwatching home improvement
and gardening shows on HGTV Then, we get all kinds of
crazy ideas about what we can or think we can do around
our own homes. Some of these projects require the assis-
tance of our husbands, but, most of the time they say we
are nuts. Once in a while, we can get them to agree to help
ease our creative minds.
Some of these projects require trips to Home Depot.
This is a fun place to go to waste time. Like kids in a can-
dy store, we sometimes get distracted by something in the
store and we plan an entire new project right there in the
store. f
Then, we sometimes leave the store and forgot the one
thing we went there for. We get in the parking lot and none
of us can remember where we parked. On occasions, we
even forget what vehicle we drove there.
We call these "Senior Moments." If you are at least 25
years old or so, then you have to admit that you've had
more than one senior moment yourself. We have been suf-
fering from this since our early 30's, maybe earlier. We get
up, start walking, and forget where we're heading or what
we are going after. Beep-beep-beep, back up in our tracks
until we remember.
We forget where we parked (now I look at row num-
bers), which is fine as long as I don't forget the number. We
forget what we we're talking about if the phone rings and
interrupts our conversation. We sometimes forget if we
took our daily medicines (we have counted them before to
make sure), or if we took that Tylenol, or was just think-
ing about taking it. We sometimes forget what hand we're
on when playing contract rummy and lay down the wrong
melds (Janice sometimes gets away with this for a whole
round) or we forgot who dealt last. I forget I leave the dish
water running until it bubbles over the counter or we
leave the sprinkler running on the gardens too long.
We can measure something, walk ten feet and forget
the measurement. I have purchased Christmas gifts early
in the year and forgot that I had them hidden. I am always
putting stuff up or hiding it from the children or so it
.doesn't get misplaced and then forget myself where I put
it. A few times, I have gone blank on remembering my
alarm code, but yet I am a walking phone book for my hus-
band and children. I'm good at remembering-faces ut of-
ten get stuck for names. .
I always make a list for the store, even if ft*& onIy two
or three items, because I've went in the grocery store,
spent thirty dollars and forgot the milk or bread that I
needed. I've tried starting a pot of coffee, forgetting the
water In fact, the other day, I got a coffee filter down and
proceeded to put one teaspoon of sugar and got halfway to
it with the creamer before I realized what I was doing. (I
was attempting to make a pot of coffee). I can attempt to
make a double batch of cookies or something and only
double some of the ingredients and get upset that it's not
the right consistency and have to figure out where I
messed up.
I could keep going on and on with these examples, but
you all know what I'm talking about. My husband, Kevin,
his brother Leonard, wife, Janice, and myself feel that at
our age if we stick together and think together, maybe one
of us will remember, if not well forget it, it wasn't that im-
portant anyway I'm sure everyone has had "senior mo-
ments" at some point. When we were younger, we allowed
ourselves one senior moment a week. Now, we can get
away with one every day (sometimes more).
I guess everybody forgets simple things occasionally
It keeps us laughing, which keeps us young at heart. Hope
everyone had a Happy Valentine's Day Enjoy your week-
See You Next Week!! Don't forget!!

All Fats Are Not Equal
Choosing a diet low in fat, saturated fat, trans fats
and cholesterol are recommendations to reduce your
risk of heart disease. What a tall ordei! And, do you un-
derstand the difference between the four? This week in
National Heart Month, we will explore the issue of fat
and ways to keep a balance of fat in your diet.
According to Dr. Linda Bobroff, UF Extension Nutri-
tion Specialist, fat is an essential nutrient in our diets.
It is a source of energy, or calories and is needed to help
with the absorption of fat soluble vitamins. The prob-
lem with fat in our diets is that we eat too much of it.
Fats are made up of a mixture of fatty acids, they
can be saturated, monounsaturated, or polyunsaturated
fatty acids. Saturated fats tend to raise cholesterol lev-
els which increase your risk of heart disease; it is rec-
ommended we limit the intake of foods high in this type
of fat. Saturated fats are solid at room temperature and
can be found in animal sources of food; examples are
butter, cream, and beef fat. The exceptions to the rule
are coconut, palm and palm kernel oil, which are often
used in baked good, cookies and crackers.
Cholesterol is a fat-like substance that is part of all
human and animal cells. It is needed to form hormones,
cell membranes and other body substances. Since your
body makes its own, you don't need extra cholesterol in
your diet. Over time, high levels of cholesterol cause
plaque to collect along the walls of your blood vessels re-
sulting in restricted blood flow or blockages. It is rec-
ommended that you keep cholesterol intake to 300 mg.
each day.
Trans fats have been in the news in recent years,
they are formed when liquid oils are made into solid
fats, although small amounts are found naturally in
some animal-based foods. Like saturated fat, trans fats
raise LDL cholesterol in blood, which increases the risk
of heart disease. Manufacturers now have to label their
products for trans fats.
Reading nutrition labels and ingredients lists can
help identify the amount of fat in a food product. Ingre-
dients are listed in descending order. To keep your fat
intake within reason, choose foods with fat listed lower
on the ingredient list. The nutrition label will also list
total fat-saturated, unsaturated and trans -fats. Choose
fdods' with 'low amounts of fat, saturated and trans fats
on the label.
Monounsaturated fats are a better choice; they are
liquid at room temperature and tend to help lower cho-
lesterol: Remember though, all fats are high in calories
and should be used sparingly Liquid oils like canola,
olive, peanut and safflower oils are all high in monoun-
saturated fats.
So, how do you apply these recommendations in dai-
ly eating habits? When preparing food, use fat free milk,
lean cuts of meat and remove the skin from poultry For-
get frying altogether, there are so many interesting low
fat cooking methods; try baking, roasting, steaming or
grilling. If you have grandma's favorite recipe that is
high fat and can't live without it, consider eating it less
often or have a smaller portion.
All fats are not equal, change the amount and type of
fats you use. Start by drastically reducing saturated
fats and substitute monounsaturated fats in your diet.
For more information on fat in your diet, call the Madi-
son Extension office for your copy of "Nutrition for
Health and Fitness: Fat in Your Diet".

During this discussion, however, the focus shifted
considerably There was little mention of future growth
or jobs or infrastructure collaboration. Instead, the con-
versation centered more on advertising comparisons.
Sentimentality appeared to override planning and in the
end the proposal centered more on rewarding NFCC for
their accomplishments by allowing them less expensive
advertising to showcase their logo. "Our logo is gaining
increased recognition, but still many don't know that
out home is Madison County," Steen noted
Paraphrasing, one council member then asked,
"Wouldn't it be more appropriate for you to simply get a
billboard out by I-10?" to which Steen replied, "Well, that
would need much more upkeep and be much more ex-
pensive. We can get the same exposure for ten years by
putting our logo on the water tower than what a bill-
board would cost for just months." No discussion re-
garding NFCC needing this consideration due to a lim-
ited advertising budget was offered, although prior to
the exchange Steen noted the college had built up over
three million in reserves en route to a ten million tar-
A second council member expressed similar reser-
vations, stating they had observed virtually no towers
with anything other than community references during
a recent trip across several states, to which Steen play-
fully replied that perhaps it's time for innovation. In
the end, the council decided an ordinance governing the
process should be enacted regardless because of the
likelihood other parties will assert that they too deserve
access. The final determi-
nation may come at next
month's council meeting
Additional town busi-
Sness included a review of
the annual, town audit,
which to no one's surprise
E R contained had no excep-
T| tions, and a unanimous
i U i E vote for Shirley Yeager to
sEU T E R serve as Council Presi-
dent. The Council Presi-
Cat dent presides in the May-
Cats or's absence.
There was also discus-
sion about the prominent
challenge facing future
residential development
throughout the county
from the new mandates re-
garding school availability
and capacity And lastly,
the council voted unani-
mously to appoint Michael
Curtis to the Planning and

One Man's Trash Is Another Man's Trash
Try this one on for size, Straight Talk with no
hidden agenda. No politics, no buddy-buddy, no
leaning left or right. Just what I know or at least,
what I think I know.
For some reason, this has become a difficult subject
for me to breach. I have literally driven around the
county the last few weeks thinking about it. I guess I
had to self-examine my own lifestyle before I decided to
spew out what's really on my mind.
My calendar in my office says the year is 2008. Proof,
to a degree, that we are not living back in the 1950's or
the 1960's, when we had so much of everything, we took
everything for granted.
I can remember in my youth, back in the fifties, my
dad and I would be driving on an isolated track'of high-
way and then he'd reach behind the front seat and grab
an empty soda bottle. With the phrase, "Watch this," he
would roll down his window on the driver's side, stick
his arm out the window with the bottle in his left hand,
then heave the bottle all the way over the car into an ap-
proaching road sign. And the majority of the time, the
ottle hit its target, making the most thundering, of
noises as it hit the metal. Now to a six year old, that was
exciting. My dad could hit a target with a bottle while
we were moving 60 or 70 miles per hour.
The bottle did not always break when it hit the on-
coming sign. Sometimes it would just glance off the
sign and land on the. ground, and, of course, some time,
dear old dad would simply miss.
It never dawned on him that he was throwing trash on
the road. It didn't seem to sink in that his action was go-
ing to cause a reaction, because whatever was tossed
out, someday, somebody was going to have to pick it up.
Today, I know my father is sorry for his actions. He is
a caring citizen. He would no more throw trash out the
window of his vehicle than he would steal or lie. And he
has taught his children the same.
But here in Madison County there appears to be a cer-
tain apathy that is building about whether or not an in-
dividual "owns" his own trash, because with ownership,
comes responsibility
Most of us know that here in the county, we take ad-
vantage of the prison system by having inmates patrol
our roads picking up the litter on our highways. And
maybe there is the perception that because the inmates
perform the task, it's free.
Maybe it is.
But try this on for size: If every citizen and visitor in
our county would own and be responsible for their litter,
then the time spent by these inmates picking up your
trash might be used for building new homes, painting
homes for the needy, helping those in need or whatever
comes to mind.
It seems ,to ne1 thatyehay moore.litter than I see ge
other places. And it drivesme up a wall. Our county is
one. of the oat,beautifi14 places in Florida, ,yet daily,our
roadways are trashed by those who are careless or sim-
ply don't care.
The other day I was on my way to Valdosta, Ga. on a
business trip, and' about a quarter-mile in front of me
was a pickup truck. The trash was just flying out of the
back. Styrofoam cups, paper bags, cup lids, you name it.
Then it dawned on me. Maybe we have a bit more lit-
ter in our county because we have a bit more trucks
here. Could it be that sim-
But, of course, we all
know that's just not an ex-
cuse. Guys, if you throw
trashsintothe backof your
truck and you travel 60 or
70 miles per hour, guess .
what's going to -happen?
Your trash will become
your neighbor's problem!
. It's time, Madison Coun-
ty, that we all start to own
our trash. If it is your
trash, don't make it some- SRAIma
one else's responsibility
We have a convenient net-
work of recycling centers
throughout the county Spanisi Moss
and, if that's too much of
a pain, how about just Q It61-8702
putting your trash in a 3 u6 U L
trash can for crying out
loud. U# I
Is it really going to take / &1SM
our citizens receiving $150
fines for littering in order
for us to start being good
stewards of our home?
If that's what it takes, so
be it.

itenced After Multi-

Agency Investigation In Manatee County

On February 8, 2008,
Judge Richard Lazarra
sentenced Joseph Ungarel-
li, 46, to a 240-month
prison term to be followed
by 120 months of super-
vised release. Judge
Lazarra also sentenced
Ungarelli's co-defendant,
Shawn Lee, 27, to an 87-
month prison term and 60
months of supervised re-
lease. Ungarelli and Lee
previously pled guilty to
conspiring to possess with
intent to distribute five or
more kilograms of co-
caine (Title 21, U.S.C. 846).

This investigation be-
gan in November 2005
when authorities received
information alleging Un-
garelli and Lee's involve-
ment in numerous crimi-
nal activities 'including
loan sharking, cocaine
trafficking, extortion and
arson. Ungarelli, a mem-
ber of the Renegades Out-
law Motorcycle Gang
(OMG) and Lee, a member
of the "Norte 14" street
gang directly participated
in or facilitated these
criminal activities
through other individuals.

Yan Domenech, 32, was re-
cently sentenced to a 77-
month prison term and or-
dered to pay $182,000 in
restitution for an arson
Ungarelli hired him to
commit. One additional
conspirator, Rick Graef,
has been indicted for his
role in this arson. As other
aspects of this investiga-
tion continue to progress,
additional indictments re-
lating to loan sharking, ex-
tortion, money laundering
and cocaine trafficking
are expected to be handed
The investigation was
a joint effort by the Flori-
da Department of Law En-
forcement Sarasota Field
Office, the Federal Bureau
of Alcohol, Tobacco, and
Firearms, Manatee Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office, the Fed-

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Program Coordinator
Jo Willis and Student Ad-
vocate B.J. Curtis of the
Madison Take Stock In
Children (TSIC) program
gave a detailed presenta-
tion at the Lions Club
weekly meeting of Janu-
ary 29. The title of the
presentation was "Mentor
Recruiting" and as the
name of the presentation
implies, TSIC is currently
seeking mentor volun-
teers for its program.
Some wonderful suc-
cess stories were shared,
as well as some basic
numbers on the status of
current scholarship
award winners. Many of
these participants began
the process in fourth
grade, although applica-
tions may be submitted as
late as eleventh.
To be awarded either
the two or four year col-
lege scholarships, which
cost $2,500 and $5,000 re-
spectively, the student ap-
plicant's family must
qualify according to in-

few rare exceptions, TSIC
students are becoming
role models just like the
mentors that are assigned
to them. For instance, Li-
ons Club member Jim
Sale had great success as
a mentor to recent MCHS
graduate Gregory Thomp-
son. There are so many
good kids like Gregory
and we need mentors to
ke6p the process working
at its best," Willis ex-
Mentors meet with
their scholars periodically
in an organized process at
the student's respective
school. These mentors
help teachers and stake-
holders support and coun-
sel, while donors provide
the money for the scholar-
ships, locally performed
through the Madison
Foundation for Excellence
in Education.
Based on numerous
examples discussed dur-

Madison County em-
ployees have traditionally
been guests of honor at a
variety of employee appre-
ciation events. Turn-
abouts being fair play
though, three county em-
ployees decided to reverse
the appreciation, sending a
warm meal and message to
their supervisor, Waste Co-
ordinator Jerome Wyche.
To express their appre-
ciation, Greenville Collec-
tion Site attendants,
Nathan Newman, Clyde
Miller and Nathanial Lee,
gave Wyche a catfish
lunch, with a very healthy
portion of compliments on
the side.
Upon receiving this
gesture, Wyche said, "Col-
lecting waste and working
to keep the county clean is
a function that we're
proud to provide and per-
form well. But collecting a
compliment from staff
that we value so much;
well, that's really a prize."
The complements did-
n't stop there though.
Newman noted, "Everyone
from Allen Cherry (Madi-
son County Coordinator)
on down deserve to be
Miller echoed the same
sentiments. "We really
want everyone to know
how good things are done
here," he said.
Actually, all three
couldn't say enough. The
attendants also acknowl-
edged the truck drivers
that haul away the trash,

Greenville. The recepta-
cles for the aluminum cans
are marked with a Cans 4
Kids sign and located "di-
rectly in front of the large
compactors at the collec-
tion sites. Attendants are
always, available to help
and residents are urged to
recycle, especially for this
worthwhile cause.

Key Kitchen Features

Consumers Want
A recent research study examined new home purchasers and divided them into
four segments: Luxury Leaders, Domestic Dwellers, Busy Bees and Career Builders.
You may care to see which description fits you best:
Luxury Leaders: Homeowners in this segment are looking for the latest kitchen
features and appliances. Luxury Leaders want a showy kitchen they can be proud of;
it may include contrasting finishes or glazed cabinetry with staggered height wall
cabinets. Features that help them entertain such as a large island, extra seating or a
wine serving or storage area are also key Creating an environment for gourmet cook-
ing is a plus they will look for such features as a cooking grotto, double oven or cut-
ting-edge gadgets.
Status and entertaining are top priorities of the Luxury Leaders, so details that
impress are on their wish list. Automatic drawer lights, decorative moldings and
trendy hardware are popular.
Domestic Dwellers: Durability and storage are the epitome of the Domestic
Dweller's ideal kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of the home for this segment and the'
gathering place for the family. Since Domestic Dwellers' kitchens get so much use,
they are looking for a space with many storage options, enhanced efficiency where
they can get work done, and materials that are easy to clean and maintain. Features
such as a walk-in pantry, free-standing hutch, Lazy Susan and drawer dividers will
meet this segment's storage needs, while a cookbook pull-down and cutting board kit
can meet their efficiency needs. Domestic Dwellers often have young children, so soft-
closing drawers and doors that protect against hurt hands are features they want.
Busy Bees: Time is a premium for this segment; their hectic lives leave them in a
constant mode of multitasking. Their kitchen is a command center for a multitude of
activities, from folding laundry to doing homework with the kids. By simply having a
place for everything, it will be easier for this segment to stay organized. Features such
as deep drawers, an under sink tote, appliance garage, utility cabinet, file cabinet and
desk area can help meet organizational needs. A storage place for children's items
such as a backpack, schoolwork and crafts is a big plus. Also, going beyond the
kitchen with the cabinetry to a laundry room or mudroom appeals to this segment.
Career Builders: The kitchen doesn't get special consideration from this segment-
-other than its relation to the home's overall value. An overall appealing and initially
impressive kitchen are top priorities. Features such as an island, upgraded appli-
ances and a built-in microwave meet this segment's approval. Basic storage and low-
maintenance features such as a base wastebasket, plate rack, tilt-out sink tray and
drawer dividers spark this segment's interest. They like an island that serves as a
landing zone for the newspaper, mail, laptop, PDA and cell phone. Another way to
grab their attention is to expand cabinetry in other rooms of the house, such as a
home office or entertainment center.
Whatever segment you identify with, you can find cabinetry that meets your
needs online at the Merillat Web site:

In the current real es-
tate market, the door has
been closed to homebuyers
who need 100 percent, fi-
nancing or don't have a
large down payment. This
means about half of poten-
tial buyers no longer quali-
fy for a home 'loan. It also
means that sellers have
fewer qualified buyers for
their homes.
One thing that is help-
ing both home sellers and
home buyers in this diffi-
cult market is the lease op-

strategy could help people
to buy or sell their home in
this difficult market.
What is a Lease Option?
A combination of con-

agreed upon price within a
specified time frame.

Investing in commercial real estate involves a lot more than finding an available
property and a willing lender.
Whether a novice or a seasoned veteran, those investing in a commercial proper-
ty--which could be residential property, retail location or a building created for in-
dustrial use--must address a range of issues such as:
which cash flow scenarios make the most sense;
what's the optimal way to manage the property;
how are leased or rental properties categorized, how to prospect for tenants and
how to create a niche in the marketplace;
how best to accurately establish property values; and
what is the best strategy for managing capital gains and other tax-related oblig-

Originating in Japan and dating back hundreds of
years, rain chains provide a decorative function as a pur-
poseful watercourse, guiding rainwater into awaiting
water basins. A serene experience, water cascades down,,
and flows through the ornamental links, acting in the
same manner as today's rain gutters with a touch more
flare. Creating a fountain effect and rela-
tively easy to make, rain chains are a per-
fect solution for the home looking for that
extra something to please the outdoor eye.
Called "Kusari Doi," rain chains can
accentuate a house functionally, reducing
kinetic energy as they slow water down-
fall, minimizing splash and erosion. They
age beautifully, while the natural weather- .,C
ing process of copper pantinas into an an-
tique green-brown. An attractive addition
to existing rain barrels, rain chains can
freely hang, guiding water into barrels,
basins or a rock garden without clogging
with ice or debris as readily as the average
Fairly simple to make, or inexpensive
to purchase, the rain chain can be modified
to suit the residents' home and personal
style. Handling the same volume of water
as a standard downspout of the same
length, a nine foot rain chain will direct ap-
proximately six pounds of water. For those who prefer to,
buy a rain chain without the trouble of creating their
own, they can be found on any number of home and gar-

Barrel racing is a de-
manding and dedicated
sport. The horses ridden in
this competition need be of
strong and agile stock. The
rider must be skilled and
athletic. Together, the two
must work as a team, accu-
rately and focused, in or-
der-to achieve victory The
timer begins when the
horse and rider cross the
starting line, at full speed,

den websites on the Internet. For the do-it-yourselfer, the
instructions are uncomplicated and require just some
basic tools.
First needed will be 1" soft copper tubing three and
a half times as long as the finished chain will be, 2" PVC
pipe, heavy leather gloves, diagonal cutters, flux, pliers,
lead free solder and a blow torch. Using the copper tub-
ing and the PVC, grip the end of the tubing and the PVC
tightly with one hand and begin wrapping
the copper around the PVC. Pull on the cop-
per to prevent it from kinking as it is being
wrapped and the end result should be a
coil. Then cut the copper coil into separate
rings with the diagonal cutters. Adjust the
rings so the two ends line up. Link the
r '"A: rings together before soldering, then brush
each joint with a dad of flux. Heat it with
the torch and flow in some lead-free solder.
Use heavy gloves to complete this task as
copper is an excellent conductor of heat.
Finally, hang the chain in place of an old
downspout, inserting a spare piece of
straight copper to span through the top-
most ring. The chain now awaits the rain.
A handcrafted copper rain chain can pro-
vide tranquility in an otherwise hectic
world. The sounds of nature flowing
through everyday life can always transport
one back in time to the days when all was
not so stressful, and it is the little touches
that help to keep one serene.

and ends when the clover
pattern around the barrels,
has been executed success-
fully, and the rider crosses,
back over the finish line. A
difficult task for an adult
jockey, it is even more im-
pressive when accom-
plished by a young girl.
On Saturday, February
2, Kaylie Rogers partici-
pated in her first barrel
racing competition, in
Monticello. Training with
Vicki Townsend for the

last few months, Rogers is
just seven years old enter-
ing this difficult sport.
"I guess you'd call it a
horse-gene and she's defi-
nitely got it." said Kaylie's
mother, Cathy Rogers,
"She grew up around them
and she just loves them."
Rogers made it
through the barrel race
course in 24 seconds,
which is not bad, by barrel
racing standards for the
first time out of the gate. A

Kaylie Rogers gives barrel racing her all at a competition in Monticello.

little nervous about her
first race, Rogers held her
own against older partici-
pants and plans to start
competing more in the
coming year.
A busy girl, Rogers, 7
years old, is a second grad-
er at Madison Academy,
where she maintained
straight A's throughout
last year. Rogers also plays
softball when she is not
helping with the chores of
horse ownership. In last
year's National American
Miss Pageant, Rogers was
third runner-up and was
invited to go to California
with the other American
Misses, she will return to
the pageant circuit when it
is held this year in in Or-
Growing up w4th Mom,
Dad (Clint Rogers), big
brother (Kyle) and all her
horses, Rogers is on the
road to success in many as-
pects of life. Bright, ener-
getic and with a never say
can't attitude, Kaylie
Rogers may just be Madi-
son's next professional
barrel racin' champion.

Welcome soil toilers, mud turners, and fair weath-
er friends, it's a bright day moving towards spring.
The upcoming week has more scattered showers
expected, but for the most part it looks to be headed
in a pleasant direction. The chill factor appears to be
slowing down, but don't pack those sweaters away
yet, there's still a chance for surprises in storm form.
The waxing Snow Moon will shine her fullest on the
20th of the month, so use the light to grow along. Feb-
ruary flowers bloom all around and Valentines can
come in color.
If seeding is the state of mind, this is a good time
to dive in. Start by taking inventory of any left over
preserves. This should give a fair idea as to the seed
order for the upcoming season. Starting onion seeds
now means they will be ready for setting out in April.
As onions from seeds tend to be firmer, they also tend
to last longer than those from sets. Start parsley in-
doors now, as well, since they are biennials and will
soon go to seed themselves.
As there isn't a thing alive that doesn't enjoy be-
ing pampered every now and again, a fresh touch of
potting soil in place of the old top quarter inch of soil
in a houseplant can perk one right up. While the bag
of soil is still out, a widow box with the right spice
can make another great picker upper. Some herbs
that bring out love are basil, bay, and mint, which
planted by February's light should help set off that
herb garden just in thyme for spring salads.
Enjoy the weather while Madison continues on
the path to spring. Hang tight and plant by the full
moon's light.
