Lee Town Council Sets

Budget, Sets

Wastewater Rates
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Lee Town Council approved their budget and set the rates
for wastewater charges at a special meeting held Monday, Sept. 27.
Councilman Roger Parsons made the motion to adopt a waste-
water rate, based on a flat rate of $21.00, plus the cost of wastewater
usage. For example, a customer using 3,000 gallons of wastewater
would be charged $32.25.
The fee can increase five percent every year if the City of Madi-
son, which will administer the wastewater system of the Town of
Lee, gives their customers an increase. Under the agreement with
Madison, they cannot treat Lee customers any differently than they
do their own customers.
The agreement should keep the Town of Lee from losing money
on the system, at least for seven years. The system will have to be
reevaluated during the eighth year.
Parsons' motion passed 3-1, with Council Member Shirley Yea-
ger voting against it. Council Member Donna Mueller, who is retir-
ing from the board, was not present at the meeting.
The town approved their budget for the 2010-2011 fiscal year. The
millage rate was set at 6.38 and the budget was set at $ 4,844,436. The

Making This Right


Economic Investment

Health and Safety

/ was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have
to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen,
hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.
- Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach

No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the
beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup
in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed.

Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet.
We have been working with impacted communities since day one.

Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is
to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have
19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping.

Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and
restaurant owners, helping to make them whole.

More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have
already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a
$20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost
incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.

BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism
recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches.

Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams
will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.

And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific
experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.

Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support
over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We
know we haven't always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil
is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do
everything we can to make this right.

A Trip Through

Lee In The

Early Seventies

Through the misty vision of memory in my
mind, I can see my hometown of Lee as it stood
when I was a child. The town wasn't big back then,
and it still isn't today, but it was big enough for a lit-
tle boy and his friends to roam free. There was also
Sure, there were some people we were afraid of
but only because we might get grouched at if we ac-
cidentally walked on the grass in their yard or some-
thing like that. We didn't have to worry about our
physical well-being, only our pride and the fear of
the occasional tattletale neighbor revealing our
careless exploits to our parents or grandparents.
In the early 1970s, Lee was much different than
the rest of the world. I knew it then, because, even as
a child, I would watch the news. Walter Cronkite
would tell what was going on in Vietnam. He would
show riots and protests on college campuses. I would
see visions on television of hippies smoking dope or
doing LSD. The world outside Lee was different.
My friends, Keith and Greg Simmons, and I
would walk the streets of Lee when we would get out
of school for a day. We would visit Stroup's Store and
buy candy at Whitty's Drug Store and buy ice cream.
Other businesses in Lee at the time included Bill
Sevor's service station, Sol Payne's store, Cherry
Farms (which is still there today), the Simon Kinsey
Barbershop and Leonard's Store (which is now the
building that a bar is located in).
While Lee has never been an economic boom-
town, it is not prospering the way that it once did.
The roads are torn up to make way for a sewer sys-
tem, which is supposed to bring prosperity to Lee.
We will have to wait and see about that. I would love
to see prosperity return to Lee, along with jobs.
When I was a child, there always seemed to be
something for the adults to do. My parents did what-
ever they had to do to earn money for their growing
family They worked in chicken houses, they worked
in tobacco fields, my father worked for a while at
Gold Kist before the family moved to Monticello.
While it is still relatively quiet, calm and safe in
Lee, I don't feel the security that I felt in Lee as a
child, because drug use and thefts have become
more common. I pray for the safety of my family and
of my neighbors in the Town of Lee.
Prayer and faith, I believe, are the golden keys
that will open doors to a bright future for the resi-
dents of my hometown and, especially for the chil-
dren in the town. I pray for Lee and all the towns and
communities in Madison County Will you please
join me?

Start Some New Money Habits

With each new season, a
feeling of change is in the air
and it gives us a perfect op-
portunity to change or start
something new. Now that
fall is here, why not work on
starting a few new money
habits? It may be time to
take a good look at the way
you handle money and try a

new strategy or two to redirect money where you want
it to go. Extension Family Finance Specialists at Rut-
gers University offer a few ideas:
* Think Positive - When facing financial challenges,
having a positive attitude in important. You can give up
and think "I'll never have enough money" or you can re-
solve to take action to improve your life. People who
think positively generally experience greater success
because they believe that there is a connection between
what they do today and what will happen in the future.
* Set specific financial goals - Determine what you
want, when you want it, and how much it costs. For ex-
ample -- you want to save a down payment of $2,000 for
the purchase of a car two years from now. That's a spe-
cific amount of money with 24 months to get there. If
you do the math; $2,000 divided by 24 month comes out
to be about $84.00 savings each month. Your task is to
put away $84.00 each month to accomplish your goal.
* Start living below your means - This one is so
hard for most Americans, it means spend less than you
earn and use the difference to reduce debt and/or save
for future financial goals. This means refrain from
overextending yourself. Those sales aren't a bargain, if
it takes you months to pay off the bill. To get a handle
on spending, keep track by recording every purchase for
a month. The easiest way to do this is to carry around a
small spiral bound notebook. It may seem like a chore
at first, but if you are honest with yourself, you may be
shocked to see how much money slips through your
hands. Once you have done this, you can begin to re-
arrange your spending habits and control where you
want your money to go.
* Pay yourself first - Think of savings as a fixed
monthly expense and give it the same priority as a
mortgage, rent or car loan payment. The easiest way to
"pay yourself first" is to have savings deducted auto-
matically through an employer savings plan. If payroll
deductions are not available, make a deposit into sav-
ings when you cash or deposit your paycheck. Work on
building an emergency fund so you had money to pay
for unexpected expenses.
* Keep good financial records - Reconcile your
bank checking account statement monthly to be sure
you know exactly how much money you have to pay for
expenses. If you have stocks or mutual funds, prepare a

file folder for each one that
you own and save the annu-
al summary statement to
help calculate your capital
gain or loss when shares are
* Start living below your

for most Americans, it

hands. Once you have done this, you can begin to re-
arrange your spending habits and control where you
want your money to go.
* Insure against large financial risks - Review
your insurance coverage periodically Family needs
change over time, such as the reduced need for life in-
surance due to grown children who are no longer de-
pendents. Be sure to cover risk such as liability,
disability and loss of breadwinner's income.
* Invest for long term growth - History tells us
that you'll earn a higher return in stocks or growth mu-
tual funds that invest in stock, over 10 years or more
than any other asset class. If you have money invested,
don't panic in these economic times, think long terms,
the market will come back.
* Borrow smart - "Shop" at least three sources be-
fore applying for a loan or credit. Compare the annual
percentage rate (ARP), various fees and other loan fea-
tures. Transfer existing credit balances to a lower-rate
creditor or ask an existing creditor to reduce your rate.
Always repay the amount owed quickly to reduce inter-
est charges.
* Get educated - Take some time to learn about per-
sonal finance. You can take a class, read books, or con-
sult a certified financial planner. The extension service
has a wealth of information on money management
and we are just a phone call away

I bet you have.
Speaking of betting,
this world-famous pirate
would forbid betting and
other forms of gambling
on his boats.
Unlike most pirates,
John Roberts dressed in
the finest clothes of his
era, which meant silk
pants and shirts. He also
had a rule of "lights out
at 8:00," although the
word "lights" meant
lanterns and candles, be-
cause the light bulb
would not be invented for
another 150 years or so.
Born in 1682 in
southern Wales, John
Roberts first worked on
ships at age 13. It didn't
take him long to learn
that there was little mon-
ey to be made as a deck
hand, but a lot of money
to be made as a pirate. He
was working as a third
mate on a slave ship in
1719 when it was cap-
tured by a man named
Howell Davis near pre-
sent-day Ghana, Africa.
Captain Davis was also
from Wales, and he was
able to confide confiden-

bunch of evil, no-good pi-
rates. This included
stranding any deserters
on a desert island or
putting them to death, as
well as cutting off the
ears and noses of pirates
who steal from their fel-
low pirates.
In the end, John
Roberts died when he
was shot off the coast of
Gabon, Africa, in 1722. As
he had earlier requested,
he was buried at sea.
So why haven't we
heard of this John
Roberts before?
In case you failed
Piracy 101 in high school,
here's one more clue for
you: His name might not
be as well-known as
Blackbeard or Captain
Kidd who, by the way,
captured "only" 30 ships
combined, yet he was the
most successful pirate in
history He captured
more than 470 ships in
his infamous career -
and many of the victims
were so afraid of him
that they didn't even put
up a fight!
It was common for

Stop The


The Obama Administration is the end-point
of decades of public spending, a Gargantua that
now threatens to smother everything else, in the
American economy.
Velma Hart's recent confrontation of Presi-
dent Barack Obama's town-hall meeting, is sim-
ilar to this Spring's Tea Party questioning
called a taxpayers uprising by some of Wash-
ington officials as they campaigned for re-elec-
Hart told the President about out of control
spending: "I don't feel the change yet. I'm wait-
ing, sir. I'm waiting."
It was the parable of the Emperor's New
Clothes: He isn't wearing anything at all!
Stop The Spending!
These three words mean Armageddon, the
end of the game, for spenders.
Franklin D. Roosevelt told us that our: "...
continued dependence upon relief induces a
spiritual and moral disintegration fundamen-
tally destructive to the national fibre.(sic.) To
dole out relief in this way is to administer a nar-
cotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit."
Annual Message to Congress, 1/4/1935.
A Narcotic
Roosevelt warned the Congress! The Con-
gress ignored the advice, and together, they took
our federal government into a brave new world.
Government policies would sap the motivation
of a huge swath of the country's workers. One
could now live without working.
One remembers the tailor, Jacob Maged, of
Union City, N.J., who, because he charged 35
cents for pressing a suit (under the National Re-
covery Act) instead of 40 cents, was fined $100
and sentenced to thirty days in jail. (NYTimes,
4/21/1934. P. 8.)

Those who want, and have been encouraged,
to ride and not push have greatly increased.
The predators of government have had to
work overtime to get their hands in your pock-
And they want to come for more! Will you
stop them?
No investment money means no job cre-
ation. No jobs, means underemployment and
unemployment. Result: massive suffering under
the status quo.
As Velma Hart tells the President about the
status quo: "I don't feel the change yet."
We won't feel the change until Congress
"Stops the Spending!" And get's off the "narcot-
ic" that Franklin Roosevelt warned us about!

Are you or your children able to pay for it?
Remember, this $900 is just September's
increase in debt. You (we taxpayers) still
have to pay the accruing interest and
US National Debt: $13,519,000,000,000

Adopts $56.5

Million Budget
The Suwannee River Water Management Dis-
trict (District) Governing Board on Sept. 28 adopt-
ed a final budget of $56.5 million and 0.4399
millage rate for the 2010-11 fiscal year that begins
Oct. 1.
The budget reflects no change in the tax rate
from the current fiscal year. Due to decreased
property values, the District has actually lowered
taxes by about $300,000 District-wide by maintain-
ing the same millage rate.
Under a 0.4399 rate, property owners with a
taxable value of $100,000 would pay $43.99 in prop-
erty taxes to the District.
"The District has worked hard to develop a
budget and work plan that addresses current wa-
ter resource issues within existing available fund-
ing levels," said District Executive Director David
Still. "We will continue to seek ways to be conser-
vative without affecting the commitment to meet
the needs of the District's resources and people."
Property taxes paid to the District fund nu-
merous services to the public. This year's budget
and work plan include the following:
* The completion of a water supply assess-
ment that will assess water availability in order to
develop a water supply plan for the Upper Santa
Fe River Basin.
* The establishment and implementation of
minimum flows and levels (MFLs) on our rivers
and spring systems to help protect our water re-
* The Suwannee River Partnership to provide
cost-share funding to local farmers for implement-
ing best management practices to help protect wa-
ter resources.
* The Ichetucknee Partnership (TIP) to pro-
mote protection of rivers, springs and groundwa-
ter in the Ichetucknee Springshed through
education and outreach, research and monitoring,
and best management practices.
* The Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps and
Risk MAP programs to evaluate flood risks, up-
date digital flood maps, and establish flood eleva-
tions. The information will provide the public
better access and data to view which properties
are located in a flood zone.
* Land acquisition and management program,
which allows the District to purchase property for
the purpose of flood control, water quality protec-
tion, and natural resource conservation. Lands
are also open to the public for recreational use.
* Hydrologic, groundwater, and surface water
monitoring network to monitor water levels and
quality and to track rainfall and flooding condi-
tions. The figures are available to the public
through the District's website.
* Efforts to improve, update, and enhance the
District's commitment to Information Technology
in the form of computing facilities, software and
data management tools, Geographic Information
System, and Internet services to the public.

Two generations of Rooney's work at the North Florida PAWS Clinic. Pictured above are (left to right): Doug Rooney, his son Scott, Katie Rooney and Scott's
wife Diana. Doug and Katie Rooney are the founders of North Florida PAWS.

North Florida PAWS in neighbor-
ing Hamilton County provides low-
cost Spay/Neuter surgery to pet
owners and shelters in North Central
Florida who could not otherwise af-
ford it.
Since January 2008, they have
spayed and neutered over 6,700 dogs
and cats from Madison, Hamilton, Co-
lumbia, Lafayette, Suwannee, Baker
and Union Counties.
The goal of this non-profit chari-
table organization is to significantly
reduce the number of unwanted pup-
pies and kittens being born to pet own-
ers who cannot afford to use a private
veterinarian. This benefits not only
the animals, but helps the families
who own the pets, improves public

safety by reducing the number of
roaming and ill animals, and reduces
the impact on city and county animal
control agencies.
Approximately 65% of the ani-
mals are females who would have pro-
duced tens of thousands of kittens
and puppies during their lifetimes let
alone their surviving offspring.
PAWS recently received a grant
from Florida Animal Friends, which
administers funds from the sale of the
Spay/Neuter Specialty License Plates.
A $30 discount applies to the already
low cost of spaying female puppies
and kittens six months or younger.
The only requirement is that owners
are receiving any income-based gov-
ernment assistance.

Fathers 4 Life

Support Huddle Held

By Merv Mattair
What a time we had together as
several fathers came together in sup-
port of each other. Attending the F4L
Huddle were Merv Mattair, Craig Wil-
son, Marcus Hawkins, Martaris Till-
man, Jermaine Malone, Charlie
Fulmer, Jerry Frank Pridgeon,
Clarence Graham, Gerald Bullocks and
Mark Taylor.
On Sunday, September 10, at 1:30
p.m., our first F4L support huddle
was held at Shelby's restaurant
where we indulged in great food,
watched football and discussed issues
that may cause us to struggle as fa-
thers. Also strategies to make us
more successful in our own individ-
ual areas were also discussed. We had
fathers from the age of 19 to 45 to at-
tend and get involved in the discus-
sions through sharing and receiving.
One of our goals is to have a fa-
ther support structure where ANY fa-
ther, young or old, can attend to get
the necessary tools that will motivate
them to be or continue to be a signifi-
cantly part of their child's life. Dur-
ing the support huddle, I (Merv
Mattair) asked a question in the area
of raising a teenage daughter, and I
was impressed with the feedback that
I received from the other fathers. I
have applied what I learned and I am

looking forward to the next huddle.
Please join us for our next F4L Huddle
on October 17, at 1:30 p.m. at Shelby's
Restaurant. For questions, feel free to
call Merv Mattair & 850-673-7481.
There will also be a Parents as
Teachers group conducted by Pam

Bunches Of Fall Flowers Arrive At Ashlyn's Rose Petal

By M.K. Graves
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Larry and Myrtice
Tompkins own the down-
town Ashlyn's Rose Petal
Rose petal at 224 SW
Range Avenue in Madi-
son. The shop sends its
delivery service all over
the county to surprise
friends and relatives
with gifts, balloons,
fresh cuts and green
"I make all of my
silk arrangements," said
Myrtice Tompkins.
They're always ready for
the next party, event,
wedding, church func-
tion or baby shower with
gift-wrapping galore.
Myrtice is a florist
and a licensed practical
nurse at Madison Nurs-
ing Center, so she's ei-
ther caring for plants or
people. Her husband,
Larry, is a former diesel
mechanic who worked
for 12 years for the Madi-
son County School

Board and 19 years at
Cherry Farms. The cou-
ple operated the Madi-
son Drive In Theater for
over two decades with
Larry running the pro-
jector and Myrtice work-
ing in concessions.
After two years at
Ashlyn's Rose Petal
downtown, their work is
steady with watering
and picking the flowers,
deliveries, vacuuming,
dusting and paperwork
to do. Right now they've
got their mums in bas-
kets ready to go for fall.
Ashlyn's Rose Petal
was named after the
Tompkins' 12 year-old
granddaughter. Ashlyn
is the daughter of the
Tompkins' daughter,
Lori, and her husband,
Danny Blount, who live
in Lee.
As a florist, Myrtice
Tompkins embraces fall
for its spectacular col-
ors: "I've got the fall
mums in. I have fresh

cuts in the daisy color, in
bronze, copper, yellows
and burgundies," she
said. "Sometimes I can
get the bronze-copper-
burgandy flecks. They
make such beautiful
Ashlyn's Rose petal
is also bursting with or-
anges, yellows, browns
and other splashes of
color among the creative
centerpieces. One smil-
ing pumpkin she de-
signed with fabric legs
looks ready for fall. An-
other arrangement is a
beautiful gold tray re-
flecting fall flowers
sprouting out of a hay
When they run low
on flowers, niece Revon-
da Frith from Studstill's
Lumber Company is
only a phone call away.
"What ya got for Aunt
Myrt?" she asks. During
the fall season, Frith usu-
ally supplies Ashlyn's
Rose petal with mums,

poinsettias and Christ-
mas flowers. Myrtice's
sister is Betty Thomas,
who is married to Elroy
Thomas. Their daughter,
Revonda, is married to
Glenn Frith.
The downtown build-
ing that houses Ashlyn's
Rose petal was originally
one of the first banks to
open in Madison. Long
ago it was called Florida
Bank. "I think it's so
pretty outside," said
Tompkins. Their phone
number is (850) 973-2050.
The bank's vault is
now the cooler room for
flowers. Myrtice can still
locate where two teller
booths used to be. She
likes the architectural
touches inside the build-
ing with its pretty win-
dow work and molding as
well as marble on the
window sills.
Some people don't
even know that the
Tompkins have a gift
shop in the back of Ash-

lyn's Rose petal with a
full line of gifts. The
shop has a private en-
trance and the sidewalk
nearby has gotten plenty
of use for everything
from sidewalk sales to
gospel sings.
"I really want to get a
gospel sing organized -
it's been too hot this sum-
mer," said Tompkins.

Cook Portable Warehouses is one of the
largest warehouse distributors in the South-
Cook's website states:
"If you find any same-size building offer-
ing all the Cook features listed in this
brochure at a lower advertised price, now, or
even up to six months following your pur-
chase, we will be happy to reduce our price by
50%. It is the only guarantee you will ever
need. No other building manufacturer can of-
fer such a bold guarantee because no one
builds a building like Cook. Look at the rest
and then come back and buy the best at a guar-
anteed price. The simulated Cook check repre-
sents our promise to you concerning our
guarantee. In the event you find a same-size
building offering all Cook features at an adver-
tised lower price, Cook will turn the simulated
check into a real one in the amount of 50% of
the sale price of the building.
"Lease with option to purchase was estab-
lished on Cook buildings as an alternative to
mini-warehousing. Our no strings plan allows
you to have your storage facility in your own
backyard or business, when and where you
need it. The low monthly rental rates are com-

parable to mini-warehousing rates per square
foot, however, with the Cook lease with option
to purchase plan a portion of each payment is
applied toward the purchase price if you de-
cide to buy.
"All that is required for delivery of your
building is a deposit and delivery fee (if ap-
plicable). The deposit is completely refundable
whenever you exercise your option to pur-
chase. You are not required to fill out a credit
application, nor are you required to keep the
building. If your building becomes a financial
burden or if for any reason you no longer need
the building, simply give us a call and we will
promptly pick it up and your credit will re-
main untarnished.
"Every Cook Portable Warehouse is built
from pressure treated materials. The pressure
treated lumber we use enables Cook to extend
a lifetime warranty on every building against
decay or termite damage. Simply stated, if the
pressure treated lumber in your Cook Portable
Warehouse is ever damaged by decay or ter-
mites, Cook will replace the damaged lumber
free of charge."

houses. They are, the Lofted Barn, the Barn,

Today In History

- October 1, 1890

History Channel. corn

On this day in 1890, an act of Congress creates Yosemite National Park,
home of such natural wonders as Half Dome and the giant sequoia trees. En-
vironmental trailblazer John Muir (1838-1914) and his colleagues campaigned
for the congressional action, which was signed into law by President Ben-
jamin Harrison and paved the way for generations of hikers, campers and na-
ture lovers, along with countless "Don't Feed the Bears" signs.
Native Americans were the main residents of the Yosemite Valley, locat-
ed in California's Sierra Nevada mountain range, until the 1849 gold rush
brought thousands of non-Indian miners and settlers to the region. Tourists
and damage to Yosemite Valley's ecosystem followed. In 1864, to ward off fur-
ther commercial exploitation, conservationists convinced President Abra-
ham Lincoln to declare Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove of giant
sequoias a public trust of California. This marked the first time the U.S. gov-
ernment protected land for public enjoyment and it laid the foundation for
the establishment of the national and state park systems. Yellowstone be-
came America's first national park in 1872.
In 1889, John Muir discovered that the vast meadows surrounding
Yosemite Valley, which lacked government protection, were being overrun
and destroyed by domestic sheep grazing. Muir and Robert Underwood John-
son, a fellow environmentalist and influential magazine editor, lobbied for
national park status for the large wilderness area around Yosemite Valley. On
October 1 of the following year, Congress set aside over 1,500 square miles of
land (about the size of Rhode Island) for what would become Yosemite Na-

Way Back When

tional Park, America's third national park. In 1906, the state-controlled
Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Grove came under federal jurisdiction with
the rest of the park.
Yosemite's natural beauty is immortalized in the black-and-white land-
scape photographs of Ansel Adams (1902-1984), who at one point lived in the
park and spent years photographing it. Today, over 3 million people get back
to nature annually at Yosemite and check out such stunning landmarks as the
2,425-foot-high Yosemite Falls, one of the world's tallest waterfalls; rock for-
mations Half Dome and El Capitan, the largest granite monolith in the U.S.;
and the three groves of giant sequoias, the world's biggest trees.

Bus Rollover Simulation

To Prepare for Accidents

By M.K. Graves
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On Saturday, Oct. 23,
a school bus rollover
with 20-30 "victims" will
be staged in Madison
"It's going to be very
realistic," said Tom Cis-
co, director of the Madi-
son County Office of
Emergency Manage-

ment. He talked about
the coordination be-
tween various agencies
and Madison County
Memorial Hospital in
handling such an emer-
gency at the Madison Ro-
tary Club on Sept. 15.
The 2010 Full Scale
Exercise will simulate
roles in the event of an
accident. In his past, Cis-

co said he has seen
"EMS freeze up like a
deer in headlights."
When asked where a
bus rollover would most
likely occur in Madison
County, Cisco said: "I-10
with tour buses flying
back and forth."

Washington Monthly
feature "America's Best
Community Colleges"
that "at the best commu-
nity colleges, teaching
comes first" and that
"students at the top com-
munity colleges are
more likely than their
research university
peers to get prompt feed-
back from instructors,
work with other stu-
dents on projects in
class, make class presen-
tations, and contribute
to class discussions." He
also points out that the
top community colleges
often receive less fund-
ing than larger four-year
universities, but do an
outstanding job at mak-

ing the best of the mon-
ey they do receive.
Grosskopf agrees
and says that NFCC stu-
dents enjoy smaller class
sizes, personalized at-
tention, and an abun-
dance of resources that
well prepares them to
continue their education
or to move into a career,
and to turn their dreams
and goals into a reality

"You will not find a
better or more economi-
cal option for higher ed-

The School Bell

By Doug Brown

Education As A Priority

A few years back, in a community
planning process, Madison's own Pat
Lightcap led the group discussion re-
garding education. He began the dis-
cussion by asking what I believe to be
one of the more important questions
residents in any community must an-
swer. The question was this: "What
does a community that truly values
education look like?"
I grew up in a family of educators
and have spent my adult years work-
ing with young people in a variety of
counseling, teaching, and administra-
tive roles. I have been in countless
conferences, meetings, and discus-
sions where the chief topic is improv-
ing our education system, improving
teaching and learning, or some other
focus on education reform. The prob-
lem with the vast majority of such
gatherings is that they tend to focus
only on schools rather than the larger
community, culture, and society of
which schools are but a part.
In my view, Mr. Lightcap asked ex-
actly the right question. It is a ques-
tion worthy of deep discussion and
the following is meant not to be a de-
finitive set of answers, but points of
departure for further discussion.
Communities that value educa-
tion recognize that learning begins
well before children ever step foot into
a school building. Human beings are
learning organisms. We are insatiable
in our quest to learn more and more
about the world in which we live. The
problem is that we can easily fall into
the trap of confusing entertainment
with learning. Just as a diet with high
sugar content can be really gratifying
from a taste standpoint, 'learning' ac-
tivities can be highly entertaining but
contain little in the way of substance
or real knowledge. Television (even
'educational' programs) and video
games will shape children in profound
ways, but they may very well shape
them in ways that hinder deeper and
more comprehensive learning.
Communities that value schools
will work closely with parents and
child care providers to ensure that
learning environments for children
are not only stimulating, but rich in
content and process. They know that
the early years of learning are pro-
foundly important.
Children do not have the luxury of
selecting the family or situation into
which they are born. Some children
are born to parents highly attuned to
maximizing the physical, mental, and
social development of their offspring.
Others are born to parents woefully
ignorant of the importance of such
development or without the resources
to provide for the full development of
their sons and daughters. Still others,
a small but significant group, are born
into situations where parents are in-
different to the well-being of the
child. Communities that support and
value education work to minimize
these deficiencies, recognizing that
the quality of life for all community
residents is enhanced when children
are provided opportunities to reach

their full potential. Parent and child
care support mechanisms are in place
and given a high priority Children are
not stupid. They can easily look
around their community and under-
stand what is valued by community
residents. They will know that learn-
ing is important if they see adults in
the community actively involved in
the lives of the children in that com-
Communities that value educa-
tion are actively involved in the
schools children attend. This includes
involvement from community mem-
bers that do not have children in the
school system. Every child is a com-
munity resource. Schools are in the
resource development business. The
factors that make schools effective are
beyond the scope of this article. Plen-
ty of good writing and commentary
concerning school effectiveness is
readily available. One thing that al-
most all agree upon is that schools
cannot do it alone. Communities must
support schools by supporting the
work of teachers, by volunteering tal-
ents and services, by being actively en-
gaged in school life, and by being
champions of quality teaching and
learning processes. The best schools
enjoy the full engagement and support
of their communities. The best com-
munities fully support their schools.
Geoffrey Canada has gained no
small degree of fame by beginning to
turn around failing school systems in
some of the most challenging and im-
poverished communities in America.
He insists that schools in any commu-
nity can be quality schools if three
components are in place. First, par-
ents are encouraged to maximize
learning in the early childhood years.
Second, the community supports edu-
cation at all levels, including the early
childhood years. If parents need as-
sistance, the community is ready to
help. The third component is quality
teaching. Schools must hire and re-
tain quality teachers and be ready to
assist or dismiss those teachers un-
able or unwilling to get better. Parents
and the community at large must be
involved in the assessment of quality
teaching, as well. Canada has been
largely successful in improving the
quality of education in communities
by rallying parents and the communi-
ty at large to work with and for the
school teachers and administrators.
He is in the business of creating com-
munities that value education.
I think it is high time to bring Mr.
Lightcap's question back to the table,
but in a more focused form. What
would Madison County look like if it
truly valued education? If the answer
is that we already have maximum
parental and community involvement
in the development of the full poten-
tial of our children, then nothing
needs to change. If the answer is that
our schools are clicking on all cylin-
ders, then nothing needs to happen. If
the answer is otherwise, then we have
work to do. We owe it to our children.
We owe it to our community.

Medicare Beneficiaries Get Break

On Brand Name Drugs in 2011

By Kristin Finney
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Americans consume well over 25
billion pickles each year. Pickles are a
crunchy, salty snack that are perfect for
a quick snack, on the go traveling or
even to just eat along with a sandwich.
Many people do not know just how
healthy pickles can be in moderation.
Pickles contain no fat, are very
low in cholesterol and often are high
in fiber. The fiber in pickles is good for
maintaining digestive track health.
Some pickles even contain calcium,
magnesium and iron.
The ingredients used
to make pickles
are also full
of .
Dill and
garlic are
two ingredi-
ents used in
the pickling
process. These two ingredients
are both able to regulate bacter-
ial growth. Another ingredient,
mustard seed, is also good for diges-
tive health.
The vinegar found in pickles of-
fers many different healthy features.
Vinegar breaks down calcium build-
up in joints, helps decrease blood pres-
sure and is also great for treating
urinary tract infections.

pickles must undergo has been proven
to improve skin and strengthen the
immune system, which wards off dis-
eases and illness.
So, the moral of the story is to eat
pickles. These snacks are great for the
body, tasty and very easy to travel
with. Pickles come in many different
shapes, sizes and flavors. There are so
many flavors that almost everyone can
find a kind of pickle they enjoy
Pickles are not only good to eat,
but they are good for the body
Anyone who is interested in a
quick and simple snack
can turn to the
l h pickle for just
. that. Pickles
S are avail-
able at gro-
cery stores
across the
county as well as in
some home-
. made food
stores. Some-
.. one can also
learn to make
his or her own pick-
les, the process is not quick
but it is well worth it.
Another benefit of pickles is that
they are inexpensive. Whether you make
them at home or buy them from a store,
pickles do not cost much. There are sev-
eral benefits of pickles to the body So,
next time the need to munch on a snack
comes along, grab ajar of pickles.

ers will provide 50
percent discounts on the
cost of covered brand-

for beneficiaries in the
Medicare Part D cover-
age gap, or donut hole,
starting in 2011, accord-
ing to Vice President Joe
Biden, the U.S. Depart-
ment of Health and Hu-
man Services and the
Centers for Medicare
and Medicaid Services.
Vice President
Biden and HHS Secre-
tary Kathleen Sebelius
made the announcement
on a grassroots confer-
ence call with seniors
from across the country
On the call, the Vice
President and the Secre-
tary discussed the bene-
fits of the Affordable
Care Act for seniors in-
cluding the prescription
drug discounts and pro-
visions in the law that
help fight fraud and
make certain preventive
care and annual well-
ness exams, free for
most Medicare benefi-
"Thanks to the Af-
fordable Care Act, mil-
lions of people with
Medicare who will fall
into the Part D donut
hole next year will pay
less for their prescrip-
tion drugs," said Vice
President Biden. "The
discount manufacturers
will pay on brand-name
drugs, helping millions
of seniors who are strug-
gling to make ends meet
at the end of the month,

and it's just one of the
ways the new health
care law helps make
Medicare stronger."
The Affordable Care
Act has helped reduce
costs for Medicare bene-
ficiaries, beginning with
one-time rebate $250 re-
bate checks for benefi-
ciaries who hit the donut
hole in 2010.
"More than 1.2 mil-
lion beneficiaries who
have hit the donut hole
so far this year have re-
ceived their $250 rebate
checks as part of the
cost savings provisions
in the Affordable Care
Act, and millions more
are on deck to get a
check," said HHS Secre-
tary Sebelius. "Now,
with these new agree-
ments, people who rely
on Medicare will see
even more savings off
their drug costs next
year, and savings will
continue even after the
coverage gap is closed in
Seniors and people
with disabilities en-
rolled in Medicare drug
plans will also find next
year that through the
use of the new tools pro-
vided by the Affordable
Care Act, premiums are
stable and the number of
prescription drug plans
that voluntarily help fill
the donut hole has in-
creased. In August, CMS
reported that the aver-
age 2011 Medicare pre-
scription drug plan
premium will remain
similar to rates benefi-

Veterans' Service-Connected

Diseases Now Recognized
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is making it easier for veterans to
get VA health care and disability compensation for certain diseases related to
service in Southwest Asia, including Iraq and Afghanistan, as reported in the
Disability Blog online.
Presumptions of service connection have now been established for nine
specific infectious diseases. Veterans will only have to show service in South-
west Asia or Afghanistan during specified periods, and that they had one of the
nine diseases within a certain time after service and have a current disability
as a result of that disease. Additional information is available through the U.S.
Department of Veterans Affairs Web site at
In cases where there is a presumption of service connection, veterans don't
have to provide medical evidence to prove a connection between their military
service and the illness.
