Crist's office established the CyberCrime Unit as a pilot

Letters to the Editor are typed word for word, comma for comma, as sent to this newspaper.
Wake Up, Madison!
I am not a long time resi-
dent of Madison but I have
close ties to the community
and this article cuts deep the
issues that have puzzled me
even to this day. For example
events like Project Graduation
and Down Home Days are
featured in the newspaper
with big write-ups and plenty
of pictures. But have you no-
ticed that they don't feature
any of the many African
Americans or other minorities
that participated in these
events. I did not see the
African American Assistant'
Principal of MCHS, students
or any of the African Ameri-
can vendors in the newspaper.
I probably won't see this re-
sponse either. African Ameri-
cans all ,over the world have
made great strides and would
like their accomplishments
mentioned and recognized
like everyone else. Check the .'
statistics of at risk youth in
Madison County and in most
inner cities. The majority of
the individuals are "minori-
ties" and in response to their
needs programs like the
NFCC Men's Basketball
Academy and 'Miss Black"
(American) pageants are
formed. Look in the archives
of the Miss Madison County
Pageant and take note how
many times an African Ameri-
can has won since it began. J.
Morris Anderson 'first created
and produced the Miss Black
America Pageant on August
17,' 1968, it was a local
Philadelphia area pageant to
protest the lack of black
women in the Miss America
pageant. In 1969, the Miss
Black America became na-
tional with 42 states partici-
There was a time when
African Americans did not
posses the rights to do or have
much of anything that they
could call their own. Now
-that they are making strides in
society and taking the time to
educate and support their
youth, elderly and family
unit's racial overtones once
again prevail with the intent to
destroy the positive nature of
certain organizations geared
toward African Americans.
This town like many, oth-
ers is still divided by racial is-
sues. African Americans
make up over 60% of the pop-
ulation of Madison County ac-
cording to the Census Bureau;
however most of all the Offi-
cials, businesses, and land is
owned or occupied by Cau-
casians. In actuality African
Americans are the majority
here not the minority. Just be-
cause you have friends of di-
verse backgrounds does not
mean that you don't carry cer-
tain prejudices in your heart.
If you did not, the issues that
were mentioned in the article
would not trouble you so '
much. Does having a Miss
Black Madison County or a
basketball team lacking other
races really bother you or is it
the fact that it appears to ben-
efit only citizens of color?
Trivia: Ask yourself why
all other parades in Madison
take place on US Hwy 90 and
African Americans flock to
the event but when the 20th of
May celebration parade starts
down Martin Luther King
Blvd. you don't see that many
(if any) Caucasians participat-
ing. If you ask me it should
start uptown and end on MLK
at the recreation park and
everyone should participate
like they do uptown at The
Four Freedoms Festival and
Down Home Days. Wake up
Madison. If you don't stand
for something, you'll fall for

We published a letter to
the editor last'week where a
Madison County citizen was
upset with a scholarship op-
portunity that was only being
offered to black students.
I then received your "let-
ter to the editor" and am still
puzzled at how I (and my
newspaper) got drawn into
this and the fact that you think
I'm discriminating' against
blacks by not putting their sto-
ries and pictures in the news-
One stltemcnt says "I did
not see the African American
Assistant Principal of
MCHS." I'm not sure where
this statement fits in. Is it
about project graduation, or
Down Home Days, or what?
Project Graduation pictures
were supplied to this newspa-
per by someone else. Neither
I, nor my staff, were able to
cover that event. As far as
Down Home Days......it just
about got rained out (did you
know that)? I was lpckcy to get
as many pictures as I got. I

gardless of race, creed or reli-
gion), and I took the dog show
winners and the frog hop win-
ners' (once again, pictures
show winners, regardless of
race, creed or religion). I
cannot believe I am reduced to
having to go thru my papers
one by one in order to show
you these things!!!!

Why must an astronaut be
recognized as "the first
BLACK astronaut" that did
"whatever." After all the
years of training and prepara-

meaning to him. Surely he
would like to be recognized as
an outstanding astronaut, an
equal. Anyone wishing for
racial equality should fight
THOSE type headlines first.

Johnny Bowen, Launa's husband, said. "He was like my dad.
I'm going to miss him a whole lot. I'm having a hard time deal-
ing with it. He might as well hav e been my.dad."'
Pridgeon's cousin, Eddie Merritt, said of Jimmy, who did
odd jobs on the side as a mechanic and carpenter: "The only
thing I can really tell you about Jimmy is he was a kind, loving
person. He would do for others before he would do for you. He
would even give you the shirt off his back. I know this for a fact
because he did it for me. My children called him 'Papa Jimmy.'
He was a straightforward, fast shooting ki'd of guy. He will be
missed around the town. People had different nicknames, for
him, including Eightball, Dime and Jimmy Dime. You hear peo-
ple talk but they can't say nothing' bad about Jim'my. If he could
fix it, he would do, it. His son, John, is following in his father's
,footsteps and, if he is half the man Jimmy was, he will be a hell
of man. I tried to follow in his footsteps and I couldn't do it."
Joe McClung, who worked with Pridgeon at Consolidated
Christian Ministries, said that Jimmy had to be a caretaker to his
wife and to his stepfather and didn't have time for a full-time,
job. He also volunteered to work at CCM.
"He was my backbone," McClung said. 'He was my assis-
tant. He did all the receiving and the stacking. He had become
like a best friend and a brother to me, as well as being my co-
worker. He was always willing to help somebody."
Pridgeon left behind a wife, Wendy, a daughter, Launa
Bowen; two sons, John and James Pridgeon, Jr.; and five grand-
children. He also left behind a legacy of caring, concern and
compassion for them to try and emulate.

Two Souls Indivisible
I: first was alerted to James Hirsch's book "Two Souls Indi-
visible" (Mariner 0iooks, 2004) by a C-Span program. Hirsch
introduced his story to the audience, follow \ ed by an interview of
the two principal characters, Fred Cherry and Porter Halyburiton.
Cherr3 and Halyburton came from very different worlds.
Cherry is black, raised in the rural, segregated South. By con-
trast, Halyburton is white, and college educated. Although raised
in the South like Cherry, Porter %\ as from a position of privilege.
But fate brought these two unlikely souls together. They
were both military aviators and in October 1965, they were shot
out of the sky, over North Vietnam and captured. Cherry was
badly hurt as a result of.his high-speed ejection, primarily from
a damaged left shoulder. He was denied medical care for his in-
juries, and the3 became,badly infected
Although Porter Halyburton had lost his pilot, he escaped
serious injury. His ejection was so narrow that the Navy con-
chided lie \\as killed For 1' months., his \ ife and infant daugh-
ter thought Daddy \\as gone fore' er. A funeral service was held
for him in Da\ idson. North Carolinj. and a monument to his
memory was placed in the cemetery.
For several, weeks, Halyburton ,was isolated from other pris-
oners and tortured by his captors. His mind and will to resist be-,
gan to break down under the relentless pressure, but he grimly
held on to his sanity. Finally, the North Vietnamese figured out
how they might break Porter's will. They decided to put him in
the same cell as Fred Cherry. You see, Cherry was'older than
Halihburon and more senior. The Vietnamese knew about racial
segregation in the South and figured that this unlikely pairing
would d lead to Hal\burton's breakdov t n. ""ou take care of Cher-
ry," the\ intoned.
.They couldn't have been more ron,2. To each man, the oth-
er was his salvation. Halyburton began to nurse Cherry back to
health, caring for his every, most,basic needs. In turn, Cherry
helped to strengthen Halyburton's resolve,, providing for his
emotional needs. Fred Cherry was and is a very strong man, leg-
endary among his fellow prisoners who should know something
about the subject. Weathering the scars of years of segregation
and prejudice had strengthened his character far beyond normal

If you remember 1973, you know it was a difficult period
for the United States. A series of events including the
Watergate scandal, the OPEC oil embargo, the Vietnam War
and the resignation of Vice President Spiro Agnew had shak-
en the public's morale. By November, President Richard
Nixon's approval rating stood at 37 percent and presidential
approval ratings tend to track the mood of the nation. Given all
this, you might think that 1973 was not a good year in which
to invest in the stock market
SBut Vou'd be ,\rong From No-. 30, 1973, to Nov. 30,
1983, the S&P 501.1 recorded an average annual return of 10.9
percent. So, if you had invested $10,000 in the market at the
beginning of that period, it would have grown to $28,139 by
the end. And over the next 20 years, from Nov. 30, 1983, to
Nov. 30, 2003, the S&P 500 returned, on average, 12.8 percent
a year; consequently, $10,000 invested in 1983 would have
grown to $111,219 in 20 years. (Keep in mind, however, that
the S & P 500 is an unnianagedindex, and you cannot invest
directly into it. Also, past performance is not an indication of
Jn short, if you had started investing in the troubled year
of 1973, and you had kept investing, you wouldhave probably
done pretty well over the next three decades.
Now, let's look at what's happening in the country in 2006.
We are facing global unrest, high gas prices and concerns
about economic security. Although there are some similarities
between 1973 and 2006 a controversial war, high gas prices,
political concerns there are also some key differences.
Perhaps most important, our economy today is much
stronger than it was back then. And as an investor, you might
be particularly interested in the following:
*Interest rates are near a 40-year low. When interest
rates are low, it is less expensive for businesses to borrow
money to expand their operations. And as businesses grow, so
does their attractiveness to investors.
*Corporate profits are growing rapidly. Corporate prof-
its have expanded at double-digit rates for 10 consecutive
quarters; profitability is one of the key fundamentals that drive
a company's stock price. So, despite the worried national
mood, the investment climate of 2006 may actually be quite
Don't Stop Investing
It's true that 2006 may be an unusually tense year for the
country. But as we've seen, 1973 was also a difficult year in
fact, by some measures, considerably more unsettling than
2006 and yet, many investors who had faith in the financial
markets in 1973 were amply rewarded.
Of course, you might not achieve similar returns going
forward over the next few decades no one can predict the
future course of the markets. But the experience of 1973 shows
the historical importance of continuous investing. A systemat-
ic investment plan does not assure a profit and does not protect
against loss in declining markets. Such a plan involves contin-
uous investment in securities regardless of fluctuating price
levels of such securities, the investor should consider the
financial ability to continue the purchases through periods of
low price levels.
So, don't let today's headlines keep you on the investment
"sidelines." If you buy quality investments, diversify your
portfolio and invest for the long term, you may be able to
design a strategy designed to work toward your financial goals
- in good times and bad.

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing,' Inc.
A Lee business was featured in a recent edition of the South-
east Area Update, a newsletter, which is received by post offices
throughout the southeastern United States.
The story tells how Mary Santerfeit, Lee Postmaster, was
able to pick up $52,000 in new revenue for the post office in Lee
and to please Jason Archambault, owner ofFastPack Packaging.
Archambault, who owns the company which sells bulk
mailing supplies over the Internet, started his business seven
years ago and had done much of his mailing through the United
States Postal Service.
As his business grew. Archambault discovered that he was'
having to make numerous trips each day to the post office to
load and unload" his mailings, plus he was being charged for the
Archambault decided to take his business to a competitor
who offered a lower base rate and package pickup. He later dis-
covered that the pickup times were unscheduled and that resi-
dential and rural delivery surcharges were added to his bill. His
customers were also complaining, saying that they had received
Santerfeit urged Archambault to come back and do his mail-
ings through the post office. Quinetta White, Business Service
Network Manager, and John Bell, Transportation Operation Su-
pervisor were invited in to speak with Archambault.
White helped the business redesign its mailings to eliminate
unnecessary charges and arranged for the business to receive
free mailing supplies. Bell scheduled to deliver wheeled USPS
General Purpose Containers to the business in the morning and
to pick up the filled containers the next day.
"The Postal Service has been absolutely great," Archam-
bault said. "The service is much more than I expected. I can't re-

10A Madison County Carrier
Wednesday, July 5, 2006
Commission listened to a presentation by Tom Lovett, a Brooks
County citizen who is opposed to the landfill. Lovett said that
the landfill would not only adversely affect Brooks County but
Madison, Hamilton and Suwannee Counties, as well.
Lovett said that the landfill would encompass 714 acres.
"You all know that 640 acres is a square mile," Lovett said.
Lovett also said that the site chosen for the proposed land-
fill is not only near the Withlacoochee, but it is in a groundwa-
ter recharge area.
"When it (the garbage) leaks, all the downstream counties
would be affected," Lovett said, "with Madison being the
Lovett said that Nestle Waters was opposed to the landfill
and that Nestle's attorney, Austin Peale, had been at a previous
meeting to voice Nestle's opposition to the landfill.
County Commissioner Ricky Henderson made a motion to
sign the resolution presented to them by Lovett, opposing the
landfill. His motion was seconded by Commissioner Alfred-
Martin, who withdrew his second after County Attorney Tom
Reeves asked how the commissioners would fill if the roles
were reversed and they were trying to do something that
Brooks County did not like.
When asked how the Brooks County commissioners stood
on the issue, Lovett said that he felt that two were against it but
he could not tell about the other three and didn't feel confident
in making a guess.
It was pointed out to the commissioners that Brooks Coun-
ty had not conferred with them before bringing up the landfill
Henderson refused to withdraw his'motion. Commissioner
Clyde King seconded the motion. When the vote was called
for, it passed 5-0.

Jeff Bailey has been min-
istering at the First Baptist
Church of Greenm ille since
March. He is looking forward
to taking on the obligations of
administrator at the new
school. The school is a min-
istry ,of the First Baptist
Church of Greenville.
Jeff and Janet Bailey
moved to Greenville from
Lee. Both used to teach at
Corinth Christian Academy.
Jeff taught eighth graders and
Janet taught sixth graders.
Jeff had been the youth
pastor at Lee First Baptist
Church for three-and-a-half
years. Janet had worked in the
public school system for over:
ten years before going to work
at Corinth Christian Academ)
in Hamilton County.,
Christian Heritage will be
offering students the Abeca
curriculum, which is pub-
lished by Pensacola Christian
College. The curriculum is one
of the best ways to prepare
students for college. The
school offers a daily Bible
class (which is required of all
students). Chapel service will.
be held each Wednesday at
8:30 a.m. The chapel service
will be open to anyone who
wishes to attend.
Jeff stated, "There is a
need for ministry among the
younger generation and the.
Academy does just that! The
school will bring direction,
guidance and a positive influ-
ence to our children."
The Baileys said that they
had prayer and asked God to
give them a passion for the
people of Greenville. The seed
of an idea about Christian Her-
itage Academy took root and
began to sprout. The couple
had mentioned it in church one
night and the church members
wholeheartedly backed the
idea and made it a reality.
Gary Abbott, the pastor of
Corinth Baptist Church, and
Margaret Ragans, the school's
principal, have been very sup-.
porti\e of the idea to start a
school in the Greenville area.
Right now, 27 students are
enrolled for the school year at
Christian Heritage Academy.
Classes will be held in the
church and Carpenters for
Christ are coming in January
to begin remodeling the old
church sanctuary for the
