Are Madison County
post offices on the list of
post offices marked for

with the power of the In-
ternet and the price of
stamps ever increasing,
bill payers are finding it
more convenient and
less costly to pay their
bills online. While it
seems to be the perfect
solution for saving mon-
ey and taking the easy
route, 54 post office
branches in Florida are
being examined for clos-

According to Joseph
Breckenridge, communi-
cations specialist for the
United States Postal Ser-
vice, he stated that the
postal service is current-
ly studying highly popu-
lated cities' stations and

if Tallahassee has one
major post office and
many separate branches

conducting a study to see
if they can close some of

Prior to the Lee Town Council meeting of Au-

Residents filled the Ernestine Kinsey Meeting
Room to capacity, where they participated in a ques-
tion and answer period that concluded with a vari-
ety of view points some for, some against, and
others simply waiting with cautious optimism.
It was no surprise that money was the center of
debate, which was magnified by the point that funds
might be available for low-income residents to hook
into the system, but not for residents who earned
over the guidelines set forth in the grant.
In the end, the group came to a consensus to contin-
ue the review, with the understanding that a full fi-
nancial breakdown is provided, and that the public
is heard, before the council makes a final decision.
It was also understood that additional funding
would be pursued to potentially defray upfront costs

Semper Fi, Buddy

~I --

HICky Williams, and wire, Pam.
I don't believe that I saw Ricky Williams again
after June 4, 1982.
Ricky was the first friend I made when I started
going to school in Monticello. He and I rode the bus
to school together (Madge Shelly drove that bus).
We played together, we fought together, we went to
church together (rode a bus that Gene Sculley drove
to church). He and I were in Royal Rangers togeth-
er, we traded baseball cards, and we did everything
together that boys usually do.
Ricky taught me to love baseball, although we
cheered for different teams. He was a Reds fan. I
was a Dodgers fan. We were in fifth grade when
Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth's record. I saw it on
Channel 10 in Albany and Ricky (who also watched
it) and I talked about it the next day. Ricky taught
me to play "thumps" and "b.b. bush" (both very
painful games).
Ricky had two beautiful older sisters and I had
two cute younger sisters. I had kind of a schoolboy
crush on Ricky's sister, Becky, but she was a few
years older. I think she may have been in ninth
grade when I was in fifth.
In high school, Ricky and I drifted apart, but he
was always my friend. He was the strong, athletic
type. I was the nerd. He was a lineman on the high
school football team and was in FFA. I was on the
Brain Bowl team and the newspaper editor. We just
started hanging around other friends.
On June 4, 1982, we graduated from high
After high school, I went to North Florida Ju-
nior College, then Florida State University, then
out into the workforce. Ricky served his country
proudly as a member of the United States Marine
Corps. After the Marines, Ricky began working at

I know that, no matter how much I miss Ricky
right now, it cannot compare to how much his wife,
Pam, (who began dating Ricky when she was 15 and
he was 17 and called him the love of her life), their
kids and grandkids miss him. But I know, and I en-
courage Pam and the family to know that God can
do all things and He will lift them up.

Disappointed Reader

To: Whom it may concern at
Madison County Carrier and
Greene Publishing, Inc.
I am writing you as one of
Mr. Pickels' concerned family
members. I am still very disap-
pointed with the lack of responsi-
bility and a pathetic apology (if
you can even call it an apology at
all) from the editor and the news-
paper in today's paper. I guess
whoever we spoke with at the
newspaper yesterday was simply
making empty promises or "pre-
mature promises" to the con-
cerned advertisers, friends, and
family who read the lies on the
front page of your newspaper Au-
gust 5th. I don't know of any jour-
nalist or editors who publish
"premature articles". Either an
article is finished or not. Either
the journalist has done his re-
search and verified facts or not.
Either they have interviewed
both sides or not. Either the jour-
nalist has been duped by a venge-
ful neighbor who wishes to
remain anonymous in his agenda
to slander Mr. Pickels or he has
not. Unfortunately, the vengeful
neighbor will also let the newspa-
per bear the legal and financial
ramifications of publishing his
However, this careless pre-
mature article does far more
damage than just legal and finan-
cial. Mr. Pickels' existing health
problems that have been made
worse by this stress and defama-
tion may be far more difficult for
him and his family to recover
from. Sadly, if the newspaper had
kept their promise to retract the
article and apologize properly
like they said they would, per-

haps we all would not still be con-
sidering to pursue this legally
Many people don't realize law-
suits are not always filed for fi-
nancial gain, but often to right a
wrong that is not only wrong but
there is a great lack of responsi-
bility or accountability of the
other party
Just to let you know again
what the true character of Mr.
Pickels is. He was being very
modest when he said he has had
to pay $50,000 to get rid of the
contamination on this one acre of
property The $50,000 dollars is
only what he has had to pay
Waste Management on Florida to
properly haul off and dispose of
the contaminated dirt. Addition-
ally, he has had to pay engineers
and specialized professionals to
test the ground samples and wa-
ter out of his own pocket too. The
real total is still being paid by Mr.
Pickels and is greater than
$130,000. Also remember, he did
not contaminate this property;
the timber company did this
years ago. He is not an industrial
CEO that ignored a problem. He
is also not a rich man either. He is
a private resident living on this
property and he could have easily
let the contamination remain
since it was apparently contained
and so costly to clean up, but he
did the right thing and paid to
have it removed. Why did he do
this? He had considered eventual-
ly selling some or all of this prop-
erty for commercial development
or businesses interested in bring-
ing the much needed good jobs to
Greenville one day He knew the
contamination left by a previous
business would not be a selling

point. On top of this, with the re-
cent decline of the global and lo-
cal economy, Mr. Pickels was still
working (well past when most
people retire) to pay these mount-
ing bills to clean up the property
while also suffering with person-
al financial hardships of his own.
This is why so many of us are
still outraged that your newspa-
per would let a vengeful neighbor
exact his revenge in this form
with a one sided article with no
research that was so completely
opposite from the truth.
Additionally, this anonymous
neighbor, as for his motives be-
yond being a known for having a
reputation of a liar and trouble
maker in this small community,
was apparently angry that Mr.
Pickels would not grant him an
easement to access his property
when Mr. Pickels originally pur-
chased the parcel of land. It is ap-
palling that the article was used
as revenge for this situation and
it should have never happened.
Any half way decent writer or ed-
itor would have realized this had
they done their job and it would
have been a complete article and
not "premature" one. I should
not have to remind you that the
reputation of your newspaper is
dependent upon the trust of your
readers and subscribers as well
as advertisers that you write arti-
cles that are factual, researched,
and newsworthy. Instead, you
have stooped to a level that is not
journalism or news, but rather
publishing hurtful neighborhood
gossip and slander instead.

Disappointed reader,

Stop Impulse

Most of us at some time or another will buy some-
thing on the spur of the moment, without a plan or
thought. Credit cards help make this practice easy Mon-
ey experts estimate that only three out of ten purchases
are decided upon in advance, while about half of all pur-
chases are made completely on impulse.
Think of the times you go to the store for one or two
items in mind and check out with a full cart. Or you run
to a mall on the weekend just to look and leave with a
trunk full of sale items. After all, it's a bargain if you nev-
er wear it, or so that little voice inside would have you be-
It takes a new strategy to gain control of that com-
pulsive habit we call impulse buying. A shopping list is
essential whether it is a mental one or a well thought out
written plan. Your grocery list as well as your household
supplies, gifts, clothing, appliance or home furnishings
list should allow some flexibility so you can switch and
save, but it is a guide to keep you on track with your pur-
University of Florida Extension Family and Con-
sumer Economics Specialists, suggest you ask yourself
three basic questions to help you separate impulse buy-
ing from planned purchases.
1.Do I need it? The answer to this question can im-
mediately weed out impulse buying.
2.Will I use it? The answer to this question can be
misleading. It is easy to convince yourself that you will
use most anything, but further analysis will help clarify
the answer. Add the questions: "How will I use it?" and
"How soon will I use it?"
3.Can I afford it? This probably is the true test. You
can answer this question by asking another. "What will I
have to give up if I buy this item now?" The answer to
these questions separates impulse items from necessities.
They tell if you can have those things you could live with-
out but that would be more fun to have.
To avoid the drain that is caused by impulse buying:
Shop alone. It is usually easier to say no to yourself
than to a spouse, child or friend.
Shop when you are refreshed. If you are tired, you
won't be as willing to take time to compare prices, to con-
sider uses and to answer the three questions that week
out impulse buying
Shop for food when you are not hungry. Hungry
shoppers tend to buy more.
Shop less often. Consumers who have difficulty
controlling impulse buying can avoid the temptation by
making fewer shopping trips.
Shop sales, but be alert! Just because it is on sale
does not mean it is a good buy for you or your family An-
swer the three questions about sale items. Modify your
shopping behavior to eliminate impulse buying from
your spending patterns.

500 Dayk

Of Suwmner

An inventive 'Summer' fling that
will leave you with a smile
Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt
& Zooey Deschanel Rated PG-13
I 4 U06,UE a.dE0Wf'-

y iieni ruonu
American Profile
An inventive take on an old movie standby "500 Days
of Summer" is a boy-meets-girl tale with a fresh twist.
The boy in this case, is Tom, a writer for a small Los
Angeles greeting-card company The girl is Summer, the
new office assistant, a recent L.A. transplant for whom
Tom falls head over heels.
Tom is smitten, but Summer isn't-or is she? She's
maddeningly difficult to read, constantly keeping Tom
guessing. She's not a tease, but a mystery
Like the season for which she's named, their rela-
tionship (the 500 days of the title) doesn't last. But the
movie lets you know that up front. First-time director
Marc Webb brings his music-video and TV-commercial
background into zestful play with a quirky chronological
shuffle of the events, toggling back and forth to various
out-of-sequence points in the relationship from Tom's per-
Because the movie "sees" things through Tom's eyes,
we're treated to several scenes that defy normal movie
conventions as they reflect his feelings at a particular mo-
ment. After his first night with Summer, he breaks into a
full-on movie-musical number choreographed to the Hall
& Oates hit "You Make My Dreams Come True," with
every pedestrian he meets on the street joining in. One
scene, presented in split-screen, shows the heart-tugging
differences in Tom's "expectations" and the "reality" of a
social encounter. Tom projects himself into the impres-
sionistic, black-and-white gloom of an arty French film
he watches during an emotional low.
It all makes for a unique and totally exhilarating
movie experience, unlike anything else you'll see this
year-and giving a shot of redemption to the genre of "ro-
mantic comedy" which has always been a tricky recipe to
pull off successfully That's why a lot of romantic come-
dies are straight-out-of-the-oven stinkers.
But this one soars, and much of its buoyancy comes
from its two wonderful leads. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, all
grown up from his child-star days as little Tommy on TV's
Third Rock From the Sun, positively glows with infectious
charm as Tom. He totally pulls you into his journey of
yearning, exuberance, confusion, hurt and heartbreak-
just not necessarily in that order.
As Summer, Zooey Deschanel is an enchanting, blue-
eyed mixture of nearness and distance. You can see why
Tom loves her, even as she stomps on his heart.
This is "not a love story" as the movie's tag line ex-
plains. Rather, it's "a story about love." And there's a dif-
ference-especially when two lovers, like Tom and
Summer, as compatible as they might seem to be, can't
quite get their two souls to sync.
And life moves on...
A touching, funny smart and sweet movie with a
wildly imaginative way of looking at things, "500 Days of
Summer" is a summer
fling that will leave you
with a smile.

The Big 9-0!

This weekend will mark a milestone in my life
that-if I thought of it at all I never thought I would
reach! My life in a nutshell one marriage and eight
children, 20 years a wonderful husband, faithful,
loving, but it ended. A second marriage, also a good
husband but it, too, ended after nine years.
At age 50, children now grown and left the nest,
I went to college first to North Florida Junior Col-
lege from which I graduated in one and a half years
with honors-Magna cum Laude and Phi Theta Kap-
pa (after all those years I had not lost that thirst for
Then on to the University of North Florida in
Jacksonville (to which I had received a small schol-
arship from its president, Dr. Thomas Carpenter I
have a cherished picture of me standing between
Dr. Carpenter and Dr. Steven McMahon at my grad-
At UNF, I jumped into college life like a teenag-
er! I was no longer a bookworm. I joined ten clubs:
Student Government, Student Activities, Young De-
mocrats, Sawmill Slough (Ecology), History, Philos-
ophy, Psychology (of which I was president for two
years), and the Interclub Advisory Council. While
working in the Student Activities office, I was put in
charge of publishing all student publications, in-
cluding the student's handbook and yearbook; the
North Star, of which I was the editor for two years;
the Campus Newsletter which was published dur-
ing the summer when the newspaper office was
closed. I was given a conference room furnished
with a huge conference table, three large file cabi-
nets, two typewriters and two blackboards, all of
which I soon had completely covered or filled. I also
had a student staff of eight two writers, two pho-
tographers, two layout helpers, one right hand girl
and one extra helper and a staff advisor. I kept
them all busy!
The director of the Student Activities office was
kept on pins and needles not knowing whether to
brag on the yearbook or just the opposite. But when
he held a copy of the finished product, he crowed all
over campus!
When I graduated at age 56 and applied for jobs
in the publishing field or public relations, the in-
evitable response was, "You're over qualified." By
law, they couldn't say my age was the problem they
wanted young (but inexperienced) college kids.
So, I worked six years as an 'admitting officer'
at Memorial Hospital of Jacksonville before retir-
ing at 65 and moving to Lee. And, dear readers, you
know "the rest of the story!"

branches. Fifty-four different branches/stations in
Florida are being studied and reviewed for closure.
The USPS has recently changed how they han-
dle mail. In years past, one could insert a piece of
mail into the drop box after 5 p.m., and it would by-
pass being sent to Tallahassee. Now, all mail shipped
from Madison goes through the Tallahassee office
and returns to Madison. Would this change in the
mail process soon eliminate the "middle man" Madi-
son office?
"We are not looking to close any main post of-
fices," Breckenridge told this reporter. "The Post Of-
fice is focusing on large populated areas where there
are more branches. We're not looking at small town
post offices."
Currently, the postal service is reviewing 667 dif-
ferent stations and branches across the country for
possible closure.
Madison County has four main Post Offices that
are not on the cut list. The offices are in Madison,
Greenville, Lee and Pinetta.
Although that's great news for the residents of
Madison County, "I can't predict what will happen 10
years from now," Breckenridge said.
So, for now, Madison County post offices are

for all residents, regardless of income.
A representative from both the grant writing
and engineering companies working with the coun-
cil were on hand to answer questions. Again, most
questions centered on costs: the cost to hook into the
system, the cost to crush the septic tank (It was not-
ed that residents could crush their own system with
appropriate oversight from the health department),
and the monthly fee for wastewater service.
Interestingly, among residents who wouldn't
qualify for low-income grant funds, some still sup-
ported the project. One new homeowner stated the
required maintenance for a new septic system could
be as high, or higher, than the estimated monthly
wastewater charge being discussed.
The grant writer further noted the State of
Florida is pushing to eliminate old and un-main-
tained septic systems, and that it is just a matter of
time these changes would be required anyway, and
that doing it now, while millions of the costs would
be covered.
Residents in opposition to the project didn't sug-
gest septic systems are better than wastewater, or
that it could help attract business. Instead, they
made the point that no one should be forced by the
government to spend money for something they
don't want, and that either way, the potential benefit
to the community would have to be more fully out-
Clarifying and detailing these points will be the
subjects of the next meeting on the subject. The
town council meets next on Tuesday, September 1 at
7 p.m. for its regular monthly meeting. The council
closed by assuring everyone that future wastewater
meetings would be announced throughout the com-

USDA Announces Signup Period

For New Farm Bill Program

Signup Period Closes August 17, 2009

The U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture's Natural Resources Conserva-
tion Service Chief Dave White
recently announced nearly $58 mil-
lion for water conservation and water
quality improvements on agricultural
working lands. The funding was made
available for 63 projects in 21 states
through the Agricultural Water En-
hancement Program (AWEP). Florida
has two projects approved for
$1,750,000. One project, with the
Southwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SWFWMD), is ap-
proved at $1 million dollars and the
second project was funded at $750,000
with the Suwannee River Partnership
If you are a producer in portions
of Charlotte, Desoto, Manatee, Hard-
ee, Polk, Hillsborough, Sarasota, and

Highlands counties you may be eligi-
ble for the SWFWMD project. You
may apply for the Suwannee River
Partnership project if you are in por-
tions of Jefferson, Taylor, Lafayette,
Suwannee, Columbia, Union, Brad-
ford, Alachua, Gilchrist, Levy, Dixie,
Madison and Hamilton counties.
Interested agriculture producers
can sign up for the respective project
at their local NRCS field office begin-
ning on August 11, 2009. The sign up
will end on August 17, 2009.
The funds awarded under the
SWFWMD's project will be used to
fund AWEP contracts with EQIP eligi-
ble producers that result in increased
irrigation system efficiency by up-
grading or retrofitting existing sys-
tems; development of surface
water/tailwater capture and reuse;

and precision irrigation systems
within the Southern Water Use Cau-
tion Areas.
Under the SRP project, EQIP eligi-
ble producers will be provided finan-
cial and technical assistance to
improve irrigation water manage-
ment and irrigation systems to con-
serve water.
The Agricultural Water Enhance-
ment Program (AWEP) promotes
ground and surface water conserva-
tion and improves water quality by
helping farmers and ranchers imple-
ment agricultural water enhance-
ment activities. With the services and
resources of other conservation part-
ners, AWEP allows the Federal Gov-
ernment to leverage investment in
natural resources conservation.
AWEP was established by the 2008

Farm Bill and funding comes from the
Environmental Quality Incentives
Program (EQIP). The Natural Re-
sources Conservation Service (NRCS)
administers the program for USDA.
NRCS implements AWEP by entering
into EQIP contracts directly with
agricultural producers. All AWEP re-
cipients must meet EQIP require-
The sign up ends on August 17,
2009 so interested agriculture produc-
ers are encouraged to sign up for the
respective project at their local NRCS

The Most Unforgettable

Character I've Ever Met

By Jane Fulford
Written in 1955
The following was found in a box
stored in an attic by Billy and Jane Ful-
ford Hutto. The former Jane Fulford is
a 1955 graduate of Greenville High
School. We appreciate the Huttos shar-
ing this diamond with us.
The first time I walked into
Mr. Kinsey's math class, I
was so afraid of him I
hardly dared breathe. For,
in all of my seven years
of school, I was going to
be taught by a man.
What would he be like?
What would he say?
How would he act? I had
already heard horrible
tales about him, none of
which I hardly dared be-
lieve. I cannot remember
how that first class turned out,
but I can remember that I was re-
lieved when it was over.
My fears and horrors of him were
to be turned into genuine liking for
him. He could get stern and strict at
times but he sure could teach math!
Mr. Kinsey taught me 7th and 8th
grade Math and also Study Hall in the
7th grade. He was my 8th grade home-
room teacher.
One funny thing I remember
about him was his medicine. He al-
ways had a fever blister to doctor or
some medicine to take. In the middle
of Math class. He would take out a bot-
tle and take a swallow or two of medi-
cine. I sometimes wondered if he had

that bottle full of Coca-Cola instead of
medicine. He would also take out some
medicine and dab it on a fever blister.
He was very good-natured. One
day in class, I decided a new thing to
do. I took a strand of hair from around
my face and would stare at him and
wrap that strand of hair around
my finger. Then I would un-
wrap and stop for a while.
Then I would start again,
staring at him all the
time. He was noticing
me and finally he said,
"I wish you'd stop that.
It's getting on my
nerves." He wasn't
mad, thank goodness,
and I had won a small
Then one time in the
7th grade study hall, I be-
lieve, I was sitting with Anna,
Sue, Myrlen and Doris, and he
made me move just because I was
whispering. He said I was talking. All
teachers are like that.
The only way we girls could get
Mr. Kinsey off the subject of math
was to get him on the subject of when
he was in the war.
Our first fear of him finally died
off and I can remember Anna and I
saying that we used to be so scared
and now going to his class was just
like drinking water it was so natur-
Anyway, he was a grand teacher
and to him goes the credit of teaching
me all the math I know now.

By Kristin Finney
Sunday morning was a blessed
time of fellowship in the Lord's eyes.
We began service with a beautiful
compilation of music sang by David
Fries. Heath Driggers gave the offerto-
ry prayer and was followed by the Wor-
ship Choir singing "I'm Standing at
the Rock." Pastor Jim Carey gave the
spoken message in Pastor Ferrell's ab-
sence. He preached from Ephesians
1:1-8. He spoke on true Christianity
and not worrying. We should know
that everything in our lives is accord-
ing to God's will.

pening for Madison First Baptist in

Tackling Stress
By Greg Asimakoupoulos
Summer is that time of year when most of us are reminded how stress-
ful our lives really are. Vacation breaks and more relaxed routines are such
a contrast to the work-related schedules that fuel our frenzy most the year.
The lives of most people in the community in which I live are defined by
stressful lifestyles. Teachers, small business owners, traveling salespersons,
physicians and even other clergy.
Head coaches in the National Football League are perhaps even more be-
set by stress. Their lives are lived on the line of scrimmage both during the
season and beyond. Prior to the start of the pre-season schedule, I sat down
with Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren, to ask him about how he deals
with the pressures that threaten to sack his health, attitude and energy.
Since first meeting Mike 16 years ago at a church conference center in North-
ern California, I've been impressed with how this successful husband, father
and coach has maintained balance in his life.
Holmgren identified five activities to which he is religiously committed
that serve as stressbusters in his life. To the degree that he embraces these
five "musts," he is able to tackle the pressures that would otherwise steal his
peace of mind.
1. Daily exercise. Mike and his wife Kathy begin their day at 6:30 in a
workout room they had built to the side of their garage. Through a regimen
of weights and aerobic exercise, they take physical fitness seriously and
have discovered its benefit when it comes to battling burnout. For Kathy,
physical fitness is a must since her treatment for breast cancer several years
ago. By exercising together they are able to keep their bodies in shape while
keeping their marriage in tune.
2. Daily Time with God. Following their workout, they towel off and re-
treat to the kitchen. After pouring a cup of coffee, they read a passage of
Scripture and a page from a devotional book before offering their concerns
and daily schedules to the Lord in prayer. According to Mike, daily exercise
and daily devotions are maintained year round-even on vacation. The dis-
cipline of a daily quiet time is a means by which the two maintain intimacy
in their marriage and a sense of intimacy with the Lord.
3. Maintaining Family Traditions. Every June Mike and Kathy retreat
with the entire Holmgren clan to their family cottage at a Christian confer-
ence center in the Santa Cruz Mountains. These rustic church campgrounds
hold special memories. It was here Mike and Kathy first met as middle
school campers four decades ago. But the retreat center has become all the
more memorable because of traditions created and sustained year after year
as the kids (and now grandkids) came along. For Mike, having uninterrupt-
ed time with his "home team" gives him an advantage as he prepares to en-
ter the most stressful months of his year. Proverbs 3:6 instructs us: "In all
your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight."
4. Reading for fun. For Mike, reading a spy thriller or a mystery allows
him to relax following a long day at the Seahawks facility. He insists that he
always has at least one book going. Even during the season he is losing him-
self in the plot of one of his favorite novelists. They include John Grisham,
Michael Connelly or John Sanford.
5. Having a hobby. Admittedly, Mike doesn't get to ride his Harley-
Davidson as much as he'd like. His schedule doesn't permit that. But, when
he can break away from
the office, he loves to FRNITUR I
bike through the beauti- FUR U -
ful tree-lined back BEDDING
roads of the Pacific i,,,, .
Northwest. For Mike, g s 95
having a hobby is an- .2'9
other key to undermin-
ing the pressure that l "
builds in a high-profile 1501 NW Capital Circle Tallahassee, FL

For Far

Back-to-school time often means
making an adjustment from the re-
laxed days of summer to the more
structured routine of school that re-
quires more organization and focus
for families. Making this transition
can be especially challenging for chil-
dren with Attention Deficit Hyperac-
tivity Disorder (ADHD). According to
the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, an estimated 4.5 million
children and adolescents in the US
are diagnosed with ADHD, a common
and treatable medical condition char-
acterized by inattention, hyperactivi-
ty and impulsivity The start of a new

children with ADHD, Patricia Quinn,
M.D., knows how important it is to be
proactive at the beginning of a school
year. "As the school year approaches,
the two biggest issues that parents of
children with ADHD seem to dread
the most are getting their children up
and out to school in the morning and
homework," said Dr. Quinn.
Based on her experience, Dr.
Quinn suggests parents reflect on
techniques that have been successful
for their children with ADHD in
years past and introduce these rou-
tines in advance of the return to
school, such as:

with ADHD, provide your child's
teacher, school psychologist and spe-
cial education staff with information
about his diagnosis, treatment and
academic recommendations, to help
put an action plan in place.
During the first two weeks of
school, request a meeting with your
child's educators to share concerns
for the upcoming year and discuss
strategies that have worked well in
the past. Keep in constant communi-
cation throughout the school year via
phone, e-mail or by creating a note-
book that travels back and forth be-
tween home and school.
For homework, observe your
child to know when and how he works
best. Some kids need vigorous exer-
cise before tackling homework, while
others do better if they complete
their homework before

clusions can be drawn from one sin-
gle study, this research supports the
need for more studies looking at the
relationship between medication use
and academic achievement in chil-
dren with ADHD. Visit for more informa-
tion on the study.
"I have seen medication help chil-
dren in academic areas for many
years, but I also know that every child
is different. It's critical that a parent
discuss all treatment options with the
healthcare professional to determine
what's best for their child," said Dr.
Quinn. "It's also important parents
observe how ADHD symptoms impact
their child outside the classroom, in-
cluding his or her social interactions,
and consider a treatment plan that is
both effective and well-tolerated."

Dr. Shezad Sanaullah of Florida Coastal Cardiology attends to Sarah
Buchanan as a nuclear camera photographs her heart.

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A common com-
plaint regarding med-
ical services in Madison
County is that residents
are forced to travel out of
town to have tests per-
formed. Among these
tests, many are critical
and routinely required,
such as those concern-
ing cardiology health.
Madison County
ranks among the worst
in the state of Florida re-
garding its physical
health, especially in dis-
eases that directly and
indirectly impact the
heart. Diabetes, for in-
stance, which is near
epidemic levels in Madi-
son County, places one at
additional risk for heart
attack and stroke. High
blood pressure and is-
sues associated with
obesity do the same. In
fact, cardiology care and

testing is at the hub of
most medical services
utilized by seniors locally.
Florida Coastal Car-
diology is therefore
pleased to now offer
these essential cardiolo-
gy services in Madison
County, having recently
opened their office at
293 W Base Street in
Madison, where Dr.
Shezad Sanaullah is in
attendance two days a
week on Monday and
Friday from 9 a.m. to
5 p.m. Cardiac ser-
vices include:
In office nuclear
treadmill and pharma-
cological stress test-
Dedicated in-
house echocardiogram
Carotid ultra-
Noninvasive test-
ing for the potential of
ventricular tachycar-
dia and sudden death

Nuclear stress testing
is used to determine
lack of blood flow to
the heart and the pres-
ence of blockages in
coronary arteries,
making it a common
requirement for car-
diac checkups.
And, the Cam-
bridge Heart Monitor,
which the practice em-
ploys, is the only diag-
nostic machine of its
Although cardiolo-
gy testing often occurs
after conditions have
surfaced, Dr. Sanaullah
emphasized his focus
on prevention.
"We are so pleased
to be in a great place
like Madison, which is
why we purchased our
office and brought in a
full staff to offer criti-
cal cardiology services.
We have a deep love for
medicine, and are espe-
cially pleased to bring
these services where
they are needed the
most. We are strongly
focused on prevention,
as well, and on provid-
ing the best in health
care," he explained.
Dr. Sanaullah's
wife Dr. Helen Nitsios
- is an internist with
the practice, sharing
her husband's love of
medicine and small com-
munities. Again, the of-
fice is located at 293 W

rently open on Monday

I ACA ii pt

By Fran Hunt
Specialfrom the Monticello News
Aucilla Christian Academy Head
Football Coach Scott Scharinger reports
the schedule for the 2009 football team.
The Warriors have been meeting
three days per week over the summer
months for weight training and condi-
tioning and Scharinger and his family
relocated to the county last week. The
Warriors will be attending the FCA
Camp (Fellowship of Christian Athletes)
July 24-26.
The Blue and Gold Scrimmage is
slated for 6:30 p.m., Aug 21; and the Jam-
boree will be against Maclay, played at
Florida High School Stadium Aug. 28,
game time to be announced.
For regular season games, all game
times at 7:30 p.m. Mandarin Christian
School of Jacksonville, Sept. 11, away;
Hawthorne middle/High School of
Hawthorne, Sept. 18, home; and

Shortly after beginning their spring
training session May 1, Scharinger ad-
vised that when the session began Fri-
day, May 1, 36 Warriors manned the field,
20 of which are returning players from
last year's team.
"They (the Warriors) are looking
great and full of enthusiasm. As you
know, we're putting in a new offense and
defense this year and the guys are like
sponges," said Scharinger.
"They are absorbing everything
quickly and they are excited about what
we are going to be doing on the field, the
changes being made, and how it's going
to be done," he added.
He also said his assistant coaches
are a great inspiration for the guys. Re-
turning from last year is Daryl Adams,
and coaching in prior years and return-

ing are Pocko Vause, ACA alumnus and
gridiron powerhouse Colby Roberts, Der-
rick Burrus, the head JV coach, and
Richard Watt.
Those Warriors listed on the Aucilla
football roster included those players to
"be watched closely" and may very well
be the season team starters on both sides
of the ball during the regular season.
They include juniors Brandon Dun-
bar, wide receiver/defensive back; Alex
Dunkle, running back/defensive back;
Lewis Wilson, wide receiver/defensive
back; Jacob Pitts, offensive and defensive
lines; Koal Swann, offensive and defen-
sive lines; Buddy Vollertsen, cen-
ter/linebacker; and Zack Waters,

ceiver/defensive back; Lane Fraleigh,
kicker/defensive back; Matthew Har-
rington, offensive and defensive line-
man; Joe Mizell, wide receiver/defensive
back; Jake Walker, offensive and defen-
sive lineman; and Daniel Ward, running
Also, sophomores Clark Christy,

Chelsea's Challenge

Submitted by the author
Hi, my name is Chelsea Musgrove and I am the Chapter President for Fami-
ly, Career, and Community Leaders of America at Madison County High School.
This school year I would like to challenge you to help us, as FCCLA members, to
raise awareness about teen pregnancy As students we have become increasing-
ly aware that the affects of teen pregnancy can be life altering not just for the
teenager, but for the child, father, family and community as well. We would like
to offer students who are currently facing this change in their life support not
just by word, but also by action.
We plan to do this through a project
called Chelsea's Challenge. In order to fos-
ter support and awareness of the strides
some of our fellow students are making,
we plan to crochet blankets for the children
who will be born to teens in Madison Coun-
ty this year. It is our hope that by providing
this outward sign of warmth that teens at
MCHS will also experience it inward, as
they go through this point in their life,
knowing that their peers support their de-
cision to take on the responsibility of rais-
ing a child.
To promote this project and not ex-
plain it's inspiration would be a mistake.
In the past year I experienced the lost of
my Granny Like most Grannies are, she
was loved very much, but she was also ad-
mired as a lady for her willingness to
shoulder responsibility and to help others
do the same. During her life time, she loved
handcrafts of all kinds but especially cro-
cheting, which I became interested in, but
never had this chance to take up until this Chelsea Musgrove
year when she got sick. With the help of
several teachers, I learned how and found the hobby very comforting as I wait
through various parts of her illness.
There are a few ways that you can help us carry out this challenge. We will be
