Schindler Denies Charges, With Reply

Dear Editor:
I was hoping to write you the day I reopened my practice, but
that day may not come as soon as I would like. As you know. my
medical license has been suspended because it is alleged that my
urine tested positive for marijuana during a random drug screen.
This was a single test, that I then paid to confirm not multiple
-tests. as is being implied. This was one of several tests that were
done over the past year-and-a-half (all previously negative.).
There is no allegation that I am unsafe to practice medicine. The
only matter at issue is the employee drug screen result, which I
S have vigorously disputed.
Julie F, Schindler, '- Let me repeat! I dispute any allegations that I used marijuana.
D.O. ,. In addition. I have undergone a hair toxicology test which came

back negative for all drugs, including marijuana.
My lawyers have provided the hair analysis test to the Department of Health and I have
recently been evaluated by the Physicians Resource Network to determine my safety to con-
tinue to practice medicine.
I am hopeful and confident that events to transpire shortly will clear my name of these
inaccurate allegations.
So, I am hoping I will be back to work soon. To all who have stood by me during this
incredible ordeal, I say. "Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I thank God for giving
me such wonderful and supportive friends and patients."

Julie F. Schindler. D.O.

Hospital Board

Gets Good

News, Bad News
By Ginger Jarvis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison County Memorial Hospital
Board of Trustees heard good news and bad
news at their regular meeting on August 17. The
good news was that an ophthalmologist ,will
soon join the medical staff; the bad news is that
new radiology equipment is too expensive to
According to MCMH Administrator David
Abercrombie, ophthalmologist Richard Palmer
will begin serving the Madison community on a
once-a-month basis beginning August 31. He
will perform cataract surgery at the hospital.
Abercrombie also reported on a recruitment
meeting in Perry. "One physician was very in-
terested. I expect to hear from her in the near
future," he stated.
The bad news? Abercrombie reported that
the hospital needs a PAC/CR machine in the ra-
diology department. The special laser camera
would cost about $10,000 per month. "We have
been trying to see how we can afford it," Aber-
crombie said, "but we just can't."
He added that the cost of the PAC/CR
hinges on the salary of a radiologist. "If (John)
Seascholtz retires, we can afford the machine.

Heartfelt Thanks To The Firemen And The Cherry Lake Community

Grandson, Forest Madison Greene, turns a big 12
years old this Sunday, Aug. 27th. Forest was named
for his uncle, Forest Selman Greene, the youngest son
of The Husband and me, who passed away just one
day after his birth on Aug. 21, 1972; and for his father,
William Madison Greene. Here, Forest is pictured re-
cently with his "best buddy," His "Pop". Happy
Birthday, Forest. Your family loves you very much.

After a critical illness and a lengthy stay in the hospital I
came home very weak and I was very unbalanced. My first at-
tempt to take a car ride ended in a disaster. When I reentered
my home from the garage, I fell from the hallway backwards
down two steps to a concrete floor. I landed on my back and
head. ...
My wife immediately called 911. A very kind and effi-
cient lady (I thank you from my heart.) asked her to stay on the
line and she would call the ambulance. She said she would
also call the Cherry Lake Volunteer Fire Department.
Well.. .in about 5 minutes we were swarmed with volunteer
firemen. The day was a Sunday and these people left their ac-
tivities in seconds. Never in my life have I experienced such
kind, professional and caring people. Doug Bass, Scott Sin-
gletary, Frank Wineo, Hiram Rutherford and others canine. I do
not know each and every name to mention and I apologize to
those wonderful people.
The firemen stabilized my neck. checked my vital signs and
checked for any broken bones. E'. ei\ one st., ed until the ambu-
lance took me away. Kim Bass and m\ neighbor Dianne Dou-

glas were here right away with the firemen. Dianne and Kim
took care of other things for me and helped my wife get ready
for the trip to the hospital. Dianne took care of our home and
our animals while we were away. She told us not to worry
about anything. She and her husband Dave Nortofi, a volun-
teer fireman, were at the house to help me in when I returned.
I was and still am overwhelmed at the'kindness of the fire-
men and the people of Cherry Lake. We since had visitors we
had never met come by to check on me. Others in the commu-
nity ask about me, when they see my wife. My neighbors have
.been great. My wife and I feel so grateful and blessed to know
these people and to be new residents in Cherry Lake.
I suffered no permanent damage from my fall (angels must
have caught me). Thanks to my wife, the firemen and my
community I am recovering from my illness quickly.

God Bless You All,

What Exactly Does The NAIS Intend To Do?

Country Music Legend Loretta Lynn performed to
a packed Wild Adventure theme park Saturday night,
August 12. Many Madison County fans were on hand
to hear her, and her family, entertain to the thousands
on hand. Among them were members of the Elvoye
Thomas family, shown just before the concert.

Loretta Lynn, the "Coal Miner's Daughter," was
joined on stage by members of her immediate family,
who also entertained during the Wild Adventure show.
Her daughter, and her granddaughter sang, to the de-
light of those present. Loretta, the trooper that she is,
had just fallen and injured her shoulder, but didn't
want to disappoint the Valdosta audience, so made the
trip, and received many standing ovations.

Turnout Made Me Proud To

Be Part Of Madison County
The turnout at the fundraiser for Crystal Farnell Saturday
afternoon made me proud to be from Lee and from Madison
County. All of the people who served, who entertained, who
took tickets, donated items for the raffle, who baked cakes, who
bought cakes at the auction and bought dinners and raffle tick-
ets, all deserve a huge round of applause. Thank you, for show-
ing your support, Madison County! You have truly exemplified
what Christian giving and living is all about.
A great big happy birthday wish goes out to Ariell Brock,
who celebrates her birthday on Wednesday, August 23. Ariell
turns 21! Also celebrating her birthday on Wednesday is my co-
worker, Jillian Sheffield, who turns 18. Happy birthday, Jill!
Happy birthday wishes also go out to Allen McCormick,
who will celebrate his birthday on Thursday, August 24. I'm not
saying how old Allen is, but he is older than dirt. I think he's 64.
Belated birthday wishes go out to Gene Stokes, who turned
66 last Friday, August 18.
I want to encourage everyone who turned out in Lee to
show their support for Crystal to also go out and show their sup-
port this weekend for other events in the community. There will
be fundraisers for the Cherry Lake Volunteer Fire Department,
the Hamburg-Lovett Fire Department and for Mattie Townsend,
who needs surgery to repair a hare lip. Remember, together we
can make a difference.
That's all the news for this week! Have a great week and a
beautiful forever! May God bless each and every one of you.

National Security
Joe Boyles
Guest Columnist

A pocket size book with a red cover arrived in the mail last
week. Emblazoned in gold on the cover was the title "Contrails
2006-2007" along with the crest of theUnited States Air Force
Academy. .Inside are packed thousands of details about the
Academy, the Air Force, other military departments, and our na-
tion's security structure.
This little book took me on a trip down memory lane forty
years ago. It was the summer of 1966. I had graduated from
high school in Gainesville on June 9th. Eighteen days later, I
was in Colorado at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains taking
the oath of office as an Air Force cadet, one of 1035 young.men
from across the country.
The first three days were 'spent in-processing, taking place-
ment tests and being fit for uniforms. It wasn't too difficult. On
Thursday afternoon at the evening meal formation, all that
changed. A cadre of about a hundred members of the Class of
1967 took over ... and the roof literally fell in our heads. Upon
the command of "gentleman, fall out and make corrections,"
these senior cadets found plenty of fault with me and my class-
mates. After what seemed like an hour of verbal abuse, we
marched off to supper and still more corrections.
A lot of knowledge that I was supposed to be conversant
with was contained in my little red Contrails book I carried it
on my person constantly and studied its contents every oppor-
tunity I could find. I found that the more I studied and retained.
the less that these "firsties" (for first classmen) had to complain
The Class of 1970, which would become the 12th graduat-
ing class, spent the better part of two months in basic cadet
training. By late August, we were pretty well "squared away"
as they say in the military. Because first semester academics
were beginning, the pressure on the fourth class or "doolies" as
we were called eased up somewhat. After all, we were college
students now although very different from our contemporaries
at campuses around the nation.
It is often said about service academies that they tear you
down to the basics and then rebuild you in their image. While
that is probably an exaggeration, it has a ring of truth. We were
taught to rel, on each other and ahsa\s put the class ahead of,
ourselves. The tnendships and camaraderie that [ formed at the'
Academy \\ere amonl g the strongest in m. life We relied on
each other to overcome despair and shared victory with equal
When our parents were able to visit us for the first time over
the Labor Day weekend, we were accepted into the' Wing of
cadets. By Memorial Day the next year, we were "recognized"
into the Wing, prepared to take our place as upper classmen.
As each new class arrived in June, we would accept more
responsibility for their training and administration. Our Acade-
my education was based on four pillars: academics, athletics,
leadership, and character building. By the time the Class of
1973 arrived, we were seniors in our last year of school before
graduation and commissioning in the United States Air Force.
Graduation at a service academy is known as June Week.
Just after Memorial Day 1970, my family, arrived from Florida,
Kansas, Nebraska and Washington along with the families of
745 of my classmates who had completed the four year program
of study. On June 3rd in the bright, clear air of a Colorado sum-
mer, lieutenant bars were pinned on my uniform by my mother
and a really pretty girl from Boulder that I had met in February.
Later that summer, I married, that pretty girl and, two children
and .36 years later, she is still my partner in life. That's the way
it ought to be.
In retrospect I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to
attend the Air Force Academy. It was a first class education and
a lot more. Also, if you study the history of what was happen-
ing at many college campuses across the nation during those
years, I was very fortunate to be insulated from the anarchy of
the 1960s counter revolution. Instead, we were just a group of
dedicated guys completing the requirements for our Bachelor of
Science degree and learning to become junior Air Force offi-
cers. That experience shaped my character more than anything
before or since and I am forever grateful to have been part of it.

specimens that help sustain a species. We encourage tagging
sharks and releasing them. But we are grateful that this animal
has been donated to science. It will help us understand more
about these animals," Hueter said.
Shark species, in general, are declining, so everything sci-
entists can learn from individuals animal is important, Hueter

these animals."

Deputy Marcus Jones of the Madison County Sheriff's Of-
fice and EMS responded to the scene. When it was apparent that
the decedent died due to homicide, Deputy Jones requested in-
vestigative assistance.. Chief Deputy Leonard R. Harris, Chief
Investigator Lieutenant Mark W. Joost and Lieutenant Tina M.
DeMotsis subsequently responded to 'the scene.
Deputy Christopher J. Andrews and Deputy Josh Harris as-
sisted with interviews and securing the perimeter while Lieu-
tenant Joost and Lieutenant DeMotsis conducted the preliminary
scene processing.
Chief Deputy Harris requested assistance from the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) since many. of the in-
vestigative leads reached well out of the jurisdiction of the
Madison County Sheriff's Office.
Senior Crime Lab Analyst Shawn Yao and Crime Lab Ana-
lyst Amy N. George of Florida Department of Law Enforcement
(F.D.L.E.) assisted with processing the scene.
Special Agent Annie White and Special Agent David
"Craig" Riley of F.D.L.E. are assisting Lieutenant Joost and
Lieutenant DeMotsis with the criminal investigation.
At the time, the unknown suspect, later identified as Hultz,
fled the scene in Meizner's, white Toyota extended cab pickup.
According to Sheriff Pete Bucher, when Hultz was arrested in
Dallas, he was still driving Meizner's pickup.
According to friends in the Marianna-Alford area, Meizner
was a homosexual, who enjoyed life and threw "great parties."
He had lost a partner named Tom Peak years earlier to compli-,
cations from what were believed to be hepatitis. At the time of
his death, he was reportedly in a relationship with a young man
named Mat. Meizner and his partner loved animals and had a
large assortment of shelties and collies.
Meizner was survived by a number of brothers who lived in
Pennsylvania and a sister who is a professional musician, who
lives in California.
Hultz-was transported back to Florida by the U.S. Marshal's
Service. The vehicle has been impounded and secured as evi-
dence at the FDLE Crime Lab in Tallahassee.

longer than one month after

stains may adhere perma-

Inquire how the. dress
will be handled and packed.
The gown should be cleaned
individually and turned in-

Stains should be treated by

sugar, cannot be dissolved by
most dry cleaning fluid, so

check into this, if necessary.
The best storage option
would be a acid-free box
with acid-free tissue paper.
The window of the box
should be acetate, which is
also acid-free, rather than
plastic. Glue, metal and rub-
ber tarts in the headpiece
can produce brown stains on
the dress, so request it be
stored in a separate box. You'
can ask to see the gown be-

or wrapped by you, should

MCHS Requires Everyone On Campus

To Use School CheckiN

By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Friday, August 18,
marked the first time-ever in
Madison County High
School's history that any one
on campus, whether it be a
student, visitor, volunteer,
has to check out with' the
School CheckIN designated
in the front office.
The system caught
Sharon Fletcher's eye when-
ever she went to visit Lown-

des County and suggested it
to Principal, Ben
Killingsworth. He visited
Lowndes County School and
decided that it was beneficial
to the Cowboys.
The system allows the
school to track their student's
check-out times more care-
fully, especially those stu-
dents who have early dis-
missal. .
It is not only more, secure
for students, but parents also.

In the past, everything
was done by hand, but this
system is bringing the latest
technology to better track
MCHS students.
Additionally, students
who would check out early
had to visit the front office
and the attendance office.
Now, there is only one stop
before leaving campus.
The system allows the
staff to track visitorss and vol-
unteers. First time visitors

must bring their driver's li-
cense and the license will be
scanned against the offender
database. If the visitor's
name comes up on the list
that the system uses to check
the state of Florida's data-
base, such as sexual offend-
ers, sexual predators, and
more, then the staff will re-
ceive 'an immediate warning.
If the visitor is clear, then the
system will easily print them
'a pass.

If a visitor pheck-in is
cleared one time by the
state's database, then they
will remain in the school's

system, but as a volunteer, so
the process of checking in
and out will be much quicker
and easier.

The Florida Division of Forestry (DOF)
has guided the operation of state forests for
over 60 years. It is DOF's primary mission,
while managing Florida's lands, to protect and
maintain the biological diversity of the many;
ecosystems found in and around the state
forests while integrating public use, of the re-
sources. Through sound forest management
practices, the Division of Forestry is able to
maintain the integrity of the forest envirdnitent'
while providing for the state's future natural re-
source needs.
The mission of DOF is to protect Florida
and its people from the dangers of wild land
fire and manage the forest resources through 'a
stewardship ethic to assure they are available
for future generations.
The five core program areas are Wildfire
Prevention, Detection and Suppression, State
Land Management, Forestry Technical Assis-
tance, and the Forestry Youth Academy.
Florida has approximately 5,000 wildfires
each year, with the most active timd of the
state's 12-month wildfire season from March
through June.
Although, the main stereotype of a fire is
looked upon as bad, its not. Fire can also be
good. Always remember that Wildfires are bad
and prescribed fires are good.
Wildfires are Bad Fires. They destroy
wilderness, property, and lives. As more homes
are built in and around forested areas, and as
more people take to Madison's wild land areas,
wildfires are also on the rise. Through discard-

As one of the most important natural
agents of change, fire plays a vital role in main-
taining healthy ecosystems. Prescribed fire
reintroduces the beneficial effects of fire into
an ecosystem, producing the kinds of vegeta-

cessive fuel buildup.

He stated, "I have al-

can in both of my careers. If
I have made a positive im-

CWD Not Found In Florida's Deer Herd

The Fish and Wildlife Conser'ation
Comnussion (FWCI has concluded Florida's
deer herd shows no signs of chronic wasting
disease iCWD) after four years of testing for
the deadly disease.
CWD is a contagious neurological dis-
ease that has been found in captive and wild
herds of mule deer, white-tailed deer and
Rocky Mountain elk within several mid-
western and western
states. The disease
causes degeneration

past four years, with no CWD-positive re-
'"Early detection is the ke. to limiting
the spread of the disease, if such an outbreak
should occur in Florida," said Deer Manage-
ment Section leader Dr. Robert Vanderhoof
of the FWC's Division of Hunting and Game
To reduce the chances of CWD gaining
entry into Florida. it is illegal to bring into
the state, carcasses of any species of deer,
elk or moose from 14 states and two Canadi-
an provinces where CWD has been detected.
The disease has been detected in New\
Mexico. Utah, Colorado, Wyoming. Kansas,

Minnesota, Oklahoma. Montana, South
Dakota. Nebraska. Wisconsin, Illinois. New
York. West Virginia. and Alberta and
Saskatchewan. Canada. Visit the United

CWVD WATCH is part of an aggressive
monitoring program to ensure CWD is not
already in Florida and the disease does not

Currentl. there is no evidence that
CWD poses a risk for humans. however,
public health officials recommend avoiding

"Cow plops," a
By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
I'm sure everyone out
there already knows what a
cow plop is. It's the noxious
residue cows leave behind
wherever they go. Cow pas-
tures are dotted with plops. If
you walk through one, you
know to keep your feet clear
of the wet ones and not to trip
over the dry ones. Here in the
country, cow plops take on a
whole new meaning. There
are even uses for them.
During the wet season.

hooks up the drag, and
spreads those dried up plops
around. If you don't drag, the
plops will kill the grass and
where there's plops. the cows
won't eat. The plops are a
good fertilizer and soil
builder if they're spread
around. When the man of the
house and I take walks
through the pasture, he kicks
the plops apart and spreads
them around. Hence the term.
"shoot kicker."
There is something many
fairs, special events, and
charity organizations use to
raise money called "cow plop
bingo." I must admit, the first

country staple
time I witnessed this game. I
was flabbergasted. Someone
had mapped the football field
into one-foot squares. People
would bu\ chances to place
their marker on one of those
squares. Then they brought
out the cow. Grown men and
women cheered, booed and
prayed for a large Holstein
cow to find their square and .
. you know what I'm going
to say, produce a plop on it.
I was watching the news
the other night. They showed
a plop-chunking contest. I'm
not sure what they called it, 1
don't think it was plops. They
could have called it "flop
chunking." no wait. it was
"co% -chip chunking." The
person that could fling their
particular chip the farthest
won. They came in all sizes.
Thankfully. they were dr\.
I have heard the settlers
and Indians use co\w and buf-
falo plops to build fires. I
guess we won't be smoking
those ribs tonight!
Whatever term you use,
cow plops are a country sta-
ple. We've all stepped oler
them. walked around them
and stepped in them. Watch
out for those cow plops, and

Woman Of The Year In

Agriculture Award

Nomination Is Nov 1st

Florida Agriculture Com-
missioner Charles H. Bronson
today announced that nomina-
tions are being accepted for the
2006 "'Woman of the Year in
Agriculture" award. The award,
now in its 22nd year, recognizes
women who have made out-
standing contributions to Flori-
da agriculture.
"This award spotlights the
vital role of women in Florida
agriculture and serves to en-
courage other women to get in-
volved in the business," Bron-
son said. "Many women have
made significant contributions
over the years in developing and
sustaining this important indus-
try, which has an overall eco-
nomic impact estimated at more
than $87 billion annually."
Those nominated for the
award will be judged by a panel
familiar with Florida agricul-
ture. The award will be present-
ed in February at the opening-
day luncheon of the 2007 Flori-
da State Fair in Tampa.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices, which sponsors the event,
has sent nomination forms to
agricultural organizations
around the state. The deadline
for submitting nominations to
the Department is November 1,
2006. Nominations remain ac-
tive for two years; after that
time they must be resubmitted
in order to be considered.

How To Recognize And Get Help When A Stroke Occurs

Does Aloe Promote
Skin Healing?
The aloe plant is a succulent
possessing long, spiky leaves that
contain a clear, thick, gel-like
substance that has proven itself
able to promote healing of dam-
aged skin. In fact, aloe gel con-
tains a number of nutrients that,
in test-tube studies, kill infectious
bacteria and fungi, as well as
block chemicals that contribute to
inflammation, itching and pain.
For these reasons, aloe gel is
often used to soothe sunburned
skin. Some studies suggest that
aloe gel applied to the skin may
also help speed the healing of
minor buins, abrasions, psoriasis,
sores and even frostbite. With all
this in mind, you may want to
keep a low-maintenance aloe
plant around the house.
Aloe vera contains numer-
ous vitamins and minerals,
enzymes, amino acids and agents
which may be anti-inflammatory
and anti-microbial. The combina-
tion and balance of the plant's
ingredients are what gives it its
healing properties. When you
require care for your skin, hair or
nails, call GAINESVILLE
SURGERY. Our office is con-
veniently located at 114 NW

main types of treatments for
strokes. These treatments are ei-
ther known as Acute or Preven-
tative Treatments. Doctors use
different treatments, due to the
different mechanisms that cause
The brain is an extremely
complex organ that controls
various body functions.. If a
stroke occurs and blood flow
cannot reach the :re-ion that
controls a particular body func-
tion, that part of the body ' ill
not work as it should.
If the stroke occurs toward
the back of the brain, for in-
stance, it is likely that some dis-
ability involving vision will re-
sult. The effects of a stroke de-
pend primarily on the location
of the obstruction and the extent
of brain tissue affected.
The effects of a stroke de-
pend on several factors, includ-
ing the location of the obstruc-
tion and how much brain tissue
is affected. However, because
one side of the brain controls
the opposite side of the body, a
stroke affecting one side will re-
sult in neurological, complica-
tio's on the side of the bad'.' if

Some of the main causes of
a stroke occurring on the right

side of the brain can result in
paralysis on the left side of the
body, vision problems, quick,
inquisitive behavior style and
memory loss.
If the stroke occurs in the
left side of the brain, the right
side of the body and the left side
of the face, will be affected.
Some of the main causes of a
stroke occurring on the left side
of the brain can result in paraly-
sis on the right side of the body,
speech and language problems,
slow and cautious behavioral
style and memory loss.
Mickey Bradley, a Madi-
son County Memorial Hospital

(MCMH) Licensed Practical
Nurse (LPN) stated, "Slurred
speech is a definite sign of a
stroke. People with high clioles-
terol and extremely high blood
pressure are at risk for strokes.
Also, smoking is another factor
that does not help to prevent
strokes from occurring."
MCMH Charge Nurse De-
lores Wilson commented, "The
quicker patients get to the emer-
gency room, the better off they
are. The quicker a doctor or
medical professional can diag-
nose the patient, the more accu-
rate care they will receive and
the better the outcome will be."

The Shorter Student:

From The Front Porch Five Tips for Parents Concerned
.. 1 R ,i n;io npl.iion About Their Child's Height

Florence Nightingale dis-
covered the importance of com-
panionship in the nursing facili-
ty in 1843. As a nurse, she keen-
ly observed patients recuperated
much more quickly when they
were exposed to children, pets
and plants.
At the present time, 163
years after she made this impor-
tant discovery, residents in nurs-
ing facilities are reaping the ben-
Several nursing homes have
begun "pet therapy" for their
residents. While this is a worthy
endeavor, it does come short of
the mark. Residents need to con-
nect to a companion. The facili-
ty staff does a fantastic job of
caring for their folks, however,
with all of the duties and sched-
ules the job requires, it is impos-
sible to "cuddle" each individ-
ual. Enter the house pet. Many
residents revel in the uncondi-
tional love a domestic pet can

6ie. A cat is an excellent e\anm-
ple. A trained house cat can sup-
ply love, comfort and compan-
ionship to many in a nursing
home. Many a time walking
down the hall, the cats can be
observed curled around a resi-
dent's feet, both of them napping
blissfully away. The same cat
can be seen sauntering down the
hallway, stopping briefly for the
occasional scratch behind the
ears from a resident. Residents
will call to the cat and respond
with a huge smile of content-
ment when the cat runs to their
side. Companion animals have a
natural place in the home.
Another household pet is a
therapeutic bird. A cockatiel is
another companion pet. These
birds cheerfully whistle
throughout the day. They thor-
oughly enjoy the attention of
the resident that will stop by,
and give them the "wolf whis-
tle." It is difficult to determine
which one is having the most
enjoyment, the bird or the resi-

Florence Nightingale also
found out the importance of
children in the nursing home.
Children are the very essence
of spontanteity. Every time a
baby .or child enters the home,
the resident's eyes sparkle
with joy. Children are honest
and energetic and refresh
everyone around them. Chil-
dren bring life, laughter and
love into their world.
Ms. Nightingale also real-
ized that green growing plants
remind residents of peaceful
growth. Many nursing homes
supply areas for the residents
to garden and to sit among the
plants. She also advocated us-
ing music to soothe their soul.
(These discoveries are
wonderful tools to enable our
residents to find peace and
comfort. Companionship is
necessary for the good of our
"Home is where the heart
is" Pliney the Elder


By Ellen Frankel
Pediatricians often report
that at the beginning of each
school year, there is an increase
in calls from parents worried
about their child's height.
Here's how to be sure
you're not letting the societal
prejudice against those who are
short in nature cause you undue
concern about your child's
Understand the Bell-
Shaped Curve: The bell-shaped
curve is based on, the concept
of a normal distribution. When
looking at height, the bulk of
the population will be in the
middle of the curve, fewer will
fall away from the center, and
still fewer will fall into the tail
ends of the curve. If a child
falls into the 5% for height, it
means that out of one hundred
children the same age, ninety-
five of them will be taller than
Stay Away From Repeat-
ed Measuring: Though parents.
may continue to worry about
their child being short, it is im-
portant to make sure that they

are not conveying the message
to their child that he/she does-
n't "measure-up." It's, there-
fore, best to stay away from re-
peated measuring.
Stop Comparing: Along
with the potential stress that
children can experience with
repeated height measuring,
there is the pressure that results
when comparisons with other
siblings or friends are made.
Keep a Boundary Be-
tween Parental Concerns and
Child Concerns Regarding
Height: Studies have found that
,parents are often more worried
and concerned about their
child's short stature than their
child is about his/her own
Be Aware of the Lan-
guage You Use: We live in a
culture where heightism exists,
yet is rarely discussed. Our
language often mirrors this
cultural bias. People tend to
celebrate the tall and ridicule
the short. It's important to ex-
amine the way height is dis-
cussed. If another family mem-
ber or friend puts someone

down based on height, it's im-
portant to discuss why such
comments are unacceptable.
Make a point of talking about
different people you admire
who exemplify all different
shapes and sizes.
As a culture, we have been
taught to believe that one body
type is better than another
body type. This type of think-
ing is harmful to everyone. It is
important to remember that
self-esteem and self-worth
cannot be assessed through
inches. As the school year be-
gins, celebrate your child's
growth in his/her wholeness. A
tape measure can never begin
to measure.the fullness of your
child. Raising healthy kids
means loving and accepting
who they are and watching the
beauty unfold as they grow
into themselves.

Consider These
"Words of Wisdom" about Investing
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Many of us are inspired by great quotations. And you
can find plenty of them related to investing. Let's take a look
at some of these quotes to determine what they.may have to
offer us.
"The four most dangerous words in investing are: 'This
time it's different.'" -Sir John Templeton, legendary investor
and philanthropist. Templeton points out that many
investors tend to repeat their mistakes -:or the mistakes of
others. For example, has the Enron debacle taught us to not
put too much money in company stock? After all, Enron
employees who participated in their company's 401(k) plan
had invested about 58% of their assets in Enron stock when
it lost almost all its value during 2001. Yet today, many peo-
ple are still, "overloading" their 401(k)s with company
Of course, Enron was an extreme example. Still, any
company's stock can fluctuate in value. And if these fluctu-
ations are significant and occur at the wrong time such as
when you're retired and want to start taking distributions
from your 401(k) you could take some "hits."
As Templeton says, simply hoping that bad things won't
happen again is not a sound investment strategy. Pay atten-
tion to mistakes and learn from them.
"The individual investor should 'act consistently as an
investor and not as a speculator." -Benjamin Graham,
author and economist
An investor looks for good investments that are reason-
ably priced, while a speculator "bets" on risky vehicles. An
investor holds high-quality stocks for the long term and
anticipates gradual price appreciation. But speculators hope
for rapid gains, so they can sell quickly and move on to their
next gamble. Sometimes they win, and sometimes they lose.
.If you want to achieve your long-term financial goals,
you might want to heed Graham's advice: Be an investor,
not a speculator.
"We simply attempt to be fearful when others are
greed\ and to be greed\ only when others are fearful." -
Warren Buffett, well-known investor
How do people act greedy? By chasing after "hot"
stocks in hopes of ever-higher gains even if the stock
prices are not supported by earnings and other key funda-
mentals. How do investors express their fear? By trying to
"cut their losses" through selling stocks when the price
drops even if the stocks still offer good long-term growth
As his quote suggests, Buffett has achieved his tremen-
dous success by doing just the opposite. If he can find no
good reasons for a stock to be "hot," he probably won't buy
it. And if a good stock's price is temporarily depressed, he'll
jump in enthusiastically, because he recognizes a bargain,
In short, Buffett likes to "buy low and sell high." And
that's good advice for all of us.
Going beyond the Quotes
As we've seen, some investment-related quotes can
impart genuine wisdom. But you can't always make invest-
ment decisions just on the basis of pithy sayings. Your
financial picture is not exactly like anyone else's, so you
will need to create investment strategies that are tailored to
your needs, goals and preferences. You may benefit from
working with a financial professional who knows your situ-
ation and can recommend appropriate solutions.
So, listen to the words of experience but let your own
voice be your true guide.
