County Commission Sends Coal Opposition letter To Taylor County, CA

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison Counth Commission voted 3-2 to send letters
both to Taylor County and the Florida Department of Commu-
nity Affairs regarding a coal-fired power plant shipping coal
through Madison County at their Wednesday, October 4 meet-
Betty Jean Johnson brought the request to the board on be-
half of Keep Florida Clean, a group, which had opposed loca-
tion of the plant in Madison County.
The Madison County Commission overwhelmingly passed
a resolution Wednesday, September 7, 2005, opposing the con-

struction of an 800-mega watt coal-fired power plant in Madi-
son County to the cheers of concerned citizens who packed the
The vote was 4-1 in favor of the resolution against the coal-
fired power plant, with only Commissioner Roy Ellis opposing.
Ellis had made a motion at the October 4 meeting to send a
letter written by County Manager Allen Cherry to Taylor Coun-
ty, expressing the fact that Madison County was worried about
coal being carried through Madison County. The Perry City
Commission had requested a railroad extension be built around
the city of Perr3, so that the coal would not be taken through the
Taylor County seat.

~WQ~ ~AbL~{$


Commissioner Ricky Henderson seconded Ellis' motion for
the sake of discussion.
County Attorney Tom Reeves expressed concern that the
county did not have to send a letter to the DCA, unless there was
legal action implied in the letter. He warned the commission to
be wary in taking such action.
Ellis' motion failed 3-2, with Ellis and Commission Chair-
man Ronnie Moore casting the votes for Ellis' notion.
Commissioner Alfred Martin's motion to have Cherry send
a letter to DCA and to Taylor County was seconded by Com-
missioner Clyde King. The motion passed 3-2, with Ellis and
Moore casting the dissenting votes.

Laura Gallagher has been named one of the spokespersons
for Florida4marriage.org.
Gallagher joins John Stemberger, who has spearheaded an
effort to, have a constitutional amendment passed, prohibiting
any marriage, unless it is between a man and a woman. The
amendment will need another 45,000 signatures to have it ap-
pear on the November 2008 ballot.
The ballot initiative already has amassed 611,000 signatures
on petitions to place, it on a referendum.
Gallagher stressed that if anyone has already signed the pe-
titions to please not sign another one, because their signatures
have already been certified and the new petition would' be
thrown out.

To the Editor,
I want to thank Greene Publishing and its staff for its sup-
port of Sophie's Walk for Vasa Previa. The goal of Sophie's
Walk is to raise funds and spread awareness of vasa previa.
Thanks especially to Jessalyn Covell for helping to spread that
awareness through her wonderful article. It may save a baby's
life. The money that was donated will be used for research, and
to spread awareness of vasa previa through the presentations by
professional speakers at medical and ultrasound conferences,
and through the presence of the International Vasa Previa Foun-
dation at educational events. Until recently vasa previa was of-

ten not even addressed in medical textbooks. Parents of babies
who died were told that "it was just a fluke"-there was nothing
that could have been done about it. We now know that this is
not true. Research has documented risk factors and manage-
ment techniques that can save babies lives, but checking for
vasa previa is still not the standard of care for all pregnant
women. Without greater awareness of this condition healthy
babies will continue to die unnecessarily. Vasa previa is a
tragedy that can be overcome. You are helping to overcome it.
Thank you so very much for your help. It was wonderful!

more marijuana from lus right front pants pocket.

riage.org and download petitions and get their friends to sign
them," she said. "If someone gets five couples who haven't al-
ready signed the petition, it will mean another 10 people have
signed to get the issue on the ballot."
Gallagher said.that she and her husband, Tom, the state's
Chief Financial Officer, who recently ran for the Republican
nomination for Florida's governor, had backed the initiative
from the start.
"We believe in protecting marriages," she said. "It was part
of Tom's campaign platform when he ran for governor.".
Gallagher, a 1983 graduate of Madison County High
School, is a telecommunications attorney. She and her husband,
Tom, have a seven year-old son, Charlie, who was featured in
campaign advertisements with them earlier this year.
Laura Gallagher is- a conservative Southern Baptist and is
the daughter of Bryan and Mikey Wilson of Madison.
"I think she's very smart and articulate. She understands the
issues and has a heart for them," John Stemberger, an Orlando
lawyer, who is the chairman for Florida4marriage.org said in an
"She has a very interesting personal story to tell. She just
called us up and said, 'We wantto do something.'" g
Stemberger added, "Laura is able to add a dimension I'm
not able to bring."

The Great Depression
The Great Depression which began in 1929 was the most
severe challenge to the American economy in our 230 year his-
tory. It lasted for at least ten years. In the words of those who
can remember the Depression like my friend Jargo Clark,
"times were hard, very hard."
As someone who was born after the Depression, I can only
imagine. But I can also study the history that has been record-
ed by authors like T. H. Watkins ("The Great Depression,"
1993, Little Broli n). Katie Loucheim ("The Making of the New
Deal," 1983, Harvard) and Milton Friedman ("Free to Choose,"
1979, Harcourt Brace) to gain some insight into this important
chapter in our nation's history.
Con% national % wisdom suggests that the Depression began
with Black Thursday, October 24, 1929 when the New York
Stock Exchange crashed. In fact, the economic downturn began
at least t% o months earlier in August and the subsequent market
crash reflected a major correction to over-extended investors.
VWhat followed was akin to a ,-perfect storm" that first
smashed the U..S. economy and then began to ripple through
other nations. Financial institutions sought to soften the impact
of the market crash. The Federal Resert e. instead of loosening
the money supply by buying government securities, tightened
credit. With a dearth of available cash,, the banks began to call
in loans. Foreclosures of businesses and farms followed when
payments could not be met with available cash flow. Small in-
vestors \"ho feared that their bank accounts 'were in danger be-
gan to run on the banks, demanding their cash. Banks began to
fail 40 percent did so from 1930-33. The "perfect storm" in-
vadedevery aspect of American life as the unemployment rate
surged to 25 percent.
As the grip of unemployment and worthless; investments
began to grip the nation, anarchy was on the rise. American
communists began to agitate, particularly in the budding labor
movement. Strikes in the automobile industry and on West
Coast docks frequently turned violent and deadly. Farmers,
tired of seeing neighbors lose their farms through foreclosure,
revolted against the banks, courts, and law enforcement. When
World War I veterans marched on. Wa.tlungton demanding a
bonus for their overseas service, they were' forcefully. dis-
patched by the same Army they had once served.
Conservative 'Republicans of the Hoover Administration *
which took office just months before the economic crisis began
eetre ufiable to cope with its effects or offer solution which
would replace despair with hope. Instead, voters turned to New
York Governor Franklin Roosevelt who handily defeated
Hoover in the 1932 election. Roosevelt and his New Deal De-
mocrats were undoubtedly the party of the people.
This was the situation that the New Dealers encountered in
1933. The prevailing wisdom of the time was that capitalism,
entrepreneurship, and individualism had failed. Instead, the
New Dealers offered a form of socialism as a solution to right
the economic ship. The theories of British economist John
Maynard Keynes would be the bedrock of the New Deal and
hold sway for nearly half a century until the Reagan Revolution
changed how we look at economic policy. ,
The New Dealers that Roosevelt brought to Washington
were firmly committed to government solutions that would pry
the nation from the grip of the Depression. They did not believe
in welfare programs because of their negative impact on indi-
vidual self-respect. Instead, they offered workfare programs -
government jobs which put people back to work and gave them
an opportunity to earn a living. Among these programs were the
Civilian Conservation Corps, Works Progress Administration,
and Subsistence Homestead program (which included the Cher-
ry Lake Project).
Great public buildings were constructed many of which
continue to stand today as historic treasures of architecture. An
example of this is Madison's post office. Just look at the names
on the cornerstone New Deal icons like Morgenthau and Far-
ley. Artists were employed like George Snow Hill whose mur-
al in the post office preserves the heritage'of Madison's vital
leaf tobacco industry.
Huge .dams were built in the Tennessee Valley and the West
to control flooding rivers and harness clean, cheap electrical en-
ergy. In fact, the roots of our rural electrification program were
born during this time. West Florida's legendary He-Coon Bob
Sikes said that no 20th Century innovation did more to improve
farm life than access to electricity.
In addition to great buildings and dams, another legacy of
the New Deal was and is Social Security. The social insurance
system crafted by the Roosevelt Administration to address re-
tirement security was certainly well intentioned although some
like Senator Champ Clark (D-MO) predicted the ultimate fail-
ure of pay-as-you-go. Three-quarters of a century later, we are
left with an important but failing system that has remained
structurally unchanged since its inception. Our understanding
of economic systems has changed over time; it is a shame that
our social insurance structure has not kept pace with our knowl-
In the end, it was not the New Deal which freed us from the
Depression, but rather, massive government spending for war
industries to fuel the World War II "Arsenal of Democracy."
Still, the Depression and the New Deal response paved the way
for our success against fascism and post-war economic boom.
No wonder we call the people who weathered this storm the
"Greatest Generation.

day Ifirst met you,
I know you remembered
the same.
We talked of the love we
had for each other,
We planned for the day
we'd change my name.
As the years passed away,
we cherished each other,
Some heartaches, worries
and fears darkened our way,
Then from our home on the
Withlacoochee river,
The Savior came down to take
you away.
I'll always be true to you
my Darling,
But I know you are happy
and welcome up there,
When God calls me home, I'll
meet you in heaven,
Sleep peacefully Darling, I'll
meet you up there.
I will still hear your voice
in the evening,
I'll see your face and blue eyes
so bright,

God took you away and
left me so lonely,
But--the Angels are
singing in Heaven tonight.

Remind Madison County Residents To

"Watch What You Heat"

It's time for Fire Prevention Week, and from October 8-
14 Madison County Fire Departments are joining forces with
the nonprofit National Fire Protection Association, (NFPA) to
remind local residents to Pre ent Cooking Fires: "Watch
What You Heat." During this year's fire safety campaign.
firefighters and safety advocateswill be spreading the word
about the dangers of cooking fires-most of which result
from unattended cooking-and teaching local residents how to
prevent cooking fires from starting in the first place.
I According to the latest NFPA research, cooking is the .
leading cause of home fires. One out of three home fires
begins in the kitchen-more than any other place in the'
home. Cooking fires are also the leading cause of home
fire-related injuries. ,
"Often %\hen we're e called to a fire that started in the
kitchen, the residents tell us that they only left the kitchen
for a fe\l minutes." said Archie Strickland. Fire Prevention
Officer. "Sadl\. that's all it takes for a dangerous fire to
start. We hope that Fire Pre\ention Week will help us reach
folks in the community before the\ 'e suffered a damaging
lesson." t
Among the safety tips that firefighters and safety advo-

cates will be emphasizing:
Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, broil-
ing, or boiling food. .
If you must leave the room, even for a short period of
time, turn off the stove.
When you are simmering, baking, or roasting food,
check it regularly, stay in the home, and use a timer to
remind you.
If you have young children, use the stove's back burn-
ers whenever possible. Keep children and pets at least three
away from the stove.
When you cook, wear clothing with tight-fitting
Keep potholders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper
and plastic bags, towels, and anything else that can burn,
away from your stovetop.
Clean up food and grease from burners .and stovetops.
Fire Prevention Week is actively supported by fire
departments across the country. This is the 85th year that
fire departments have observed Fire Prevention Week. mak-
ing it the longest running public health and safety obser-
vance on record.

Observing National Ftireafety Month

B.' Jessali n Cot ell
Greene Publish in. hIt
Dunng the month of October. people around the nation
\\ ill be obser ing National Fire Safety Month.
According to the National Fire Protection Association
iNFPAi. a residential fire that includes homes, hotels, dor-
mitories, and rooming houses is reported even 77 seconds in
the United States.
Citizens need to learn ho%\ and \ hen to use their house,
hold fire extinguisher. In the right hands. a household fire
extinguisher can save lihes and protect property. However,

safety experts note that people need to know fire extinguish-
er limitations.
Smoke alarms serve as lifesavers. Due to different build-
ing materials and certain paints some fires are burning hotter
and up to five times faster than they did 30 years ago, accord-
ing to federal research. As a result, properly maintained res-
idential smoke alarms are even more valuable to families
than a generation ago.
As fall approaches and the cooler weather prompts resi-
dents' to fire up their furnaces, every family needs to take
extra precaution during the cold months to avoid fires.

Rick Davis and Carl Dean Recognized

As Paul Harris Fellows

Carl Dean and Rick Davis were recognized as Paul Harris Fellows at a recent
Rotary meeting. Pictured, left to right are: Carl Dean; Rick Davis; Nancy Peterson,
President; and Phil Heard, past president. (Photo submitted)

On Wednesday, October 4,
the Rotary Club recognized
Rick Davis and Carl Dean as
Paul Harris Fellows. It has
been a practice of many clubs
to award Paul Harris Fellow-
ship in appreciation of his or
her service to the club. Paul
Harris Fellow recognition was
created in memory of Paul Har-
ris, the founder of Rotary as a
way to show appreciation for
contributions to the Rotary
Foundation's charitable and ed-
ucational program.
Rick Davis, a past presi-
dent of the club, serves a trea-
surer; Carl Dean, also a past
president and assistant district
governor, is the club's Inteina-
tional Service Director.
The world's first service
club, the Rotary Club of Chica-
go, Illinois, was formed on Feb-
ruary 23, 1905, by Paul P. Har-
ris,. an attorney who wished to
recapture in a professional club
the same friendly spirit he had
felt in the small towns of his
youth. The name "Rotary" de-
rived from the early practice of
rotating meetings among mem-
bers' offices.
As Rotary grew, its mis-
sion expanded beyond serving
the professional and social in-
terests of club members. Ro-
tarians began pooling their re-
sources and contributing their
talents to help serve communi-

ties in need. The organiza-
tion's dedication to this ideal is
best expressed in its principal
motto: Service Above Self.
Rotary also later embraced a
code of ethics, called the 4-Way
Test, that has been translated
into hundreds of languages.
An endowment fund, set
up by Rotarians in 1917 ''for
,doing good in the world," be-
came a not-for-profit corpora-
tion known as The Rotary,
Foundation in 1928. Today,
contributions to The Rotary
Foundation total more than
US$80 million annually and
support a wide range of human-
itarian grants and educational
programs that enable Rotarians
to bring hope and promote in-
ternational understanding
throughout the world.
As it approached the dawn
of the 21st century, Rotary
worked to meet the changing
needs, of society, expanding its
service effort to address such
pressing issues as environmen-
tal degradation, illiteracy,
world hunger, and children at
risk. The organization admitted
women for the first time
(worldwide),in 1989 and claims
more than 145,000 women in
its ranks today. Following the
collapse of the Berlin Wall and
the dissolution of the Soviet
Union, 'Rotary 'clubs were
formed or re-established
throughout Central and Eastern
Europe. Today, 1.2 million Ro-.
tarians belong to some 32,000

The club contributes to a
variety of community causes
including Madison County
Needy Families, "Take Stock in
Children," the NFCC Founda-
tion, Project Graduation, and
the Southern Scholarship Foun-
dation. The club will place
dictionaries in 3rd grade class-
rooms in public and private
schools in Madison County this
fall. In addition, the club will
sponsor a blood drive on No-
vember 9th. Rotarians are cur-
rently asking for help support-
ing these activities. The club's
major fundraiser, a Prime Rib
Dinner, will be held on October
26th. Tickets are available

Do You Have a Plan to
Provide for Loved Ones?
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
You work hard to provide a comfortable living for your
family. But you also need to think about what might happen
to them after you're gone or if you become incapacitated.
That means you need to start planning. And the best time to
begin is now, no matter what your age-- because the future
is not ours to see.
.To properly provide for your family, you'll need to take
quite a. fe- steps. Here are some of the most important ones.
Purchasing adequate life insurance You may
already have life insurance about three-fourths of
Americans do, according to LIMRA, a research and con-
sulting organization serving the life insurance industry but
do you have a sufficient amount to pay off your mortgage,
send your children to college and meet other key needs? A
financial professional can help you determine if your cover-
age is adequate.
Lowering taxes Some of the individual assets you
leave behind may generate income taxes, which can be con-
siderable' A tax advisor may be able to help you reduce this
potential burden.
Designating beneficiaries Youl should periodically
review the beneficiary designations on your life insurance
contracts and qualified plans, such as 401(k)s and IRAs. It's
essential to update these designations if remarriages and
stepchildren are part of your family picture. Keep in mind
that. beneficiary designations will even supersede the
instructions in your will, so, if these designations are out of
date, your true wishes may not be carried out.
Writing a will If you were to die intestate without a
will your assets might be distributed by a court. This could
lead to a great deal of problems within your family.
Creating a living trust Even if you have a will, your
assets will have to pass through probate which can be
time-consuming and expensive. But with a properly estab-
lished living trust, your assets can pass directly to your ben-
eficiaries without court interference, legal fees, lengthy
delays and public disclosure.
Drafting a general power of attorney This docu-
ment allows you to appoint another person' to conduct your
business affairs if you become physically or mentally inca-

Clearly, trying to accomplish all these steps can be
somewhat daunting. But you don't have to do it alone. By
assembling a qualified estate-planning team, consisting of a
financial professional, a tax advisor and an attorney, you
can get the help -you need to achieve your goals.
Of course, you're never really "done" with your estate
planning. Why? Because, over time, your life can change in
many ways; Your family or job situation may change, or
you may become involved in charities that you wish to sup-
port. Consequently, you'll want to revisit almost every
aspect of your estate plan every few years.
But you won't want to wait a few years before you
begin your planning. You don't have to get all your plans in
place at one time, but you do need to start the ball rolling.
Estate planning can take a lot of work but all you have to
do is look at your family to know that the effort was worth

What Was Once A Dream Is Now A Tradition Of Compassion And Excellence

Big Bend Hospice Celebrates 23 Years Of
For Madison County Patients And 7

Twenty-three years ago, a group of local volunteers saw a
dream take form when Big Bend Hospice was licensed as the in-
dependent nonprofit provider of hospice care for Madison Coun-
ty and the other seven counties of the Big Bend area. From a
small group of dedicated volunteers who knew there was a bet-
ter way to care for those at the end of their lives, our communi-
ty has seen hospice grow to meet the needs of hundreds.
On Tuesday, October 24 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. the
public is invited to join in the celebration at'the gazebo in Four
Freedoms Park to commemorate 23 years of compassionate care
and excellent service. Everyone is invited to stop by, enjoy cake
and punch and meet the new President and CEO for Big Bend
Hospice, Carla Braveman, R.N., M.Ed., CHCE. There will be a
gift table for donations of patient-care comfort gifts. Many pa-
tients who cannot afford basic comfort items like nutritional sup-
plements such as Ensure, Depends , unscented lotions, lap
quilts, bed jackets, or even a cuddly stuffed animal. There will"
be a money tree for cash or check donations to help with some of
these needs. Big Bend Hospice accepts patients regardless of
their ability to pay, so donations to the patient care fund and com-
fort care items from our community can really mean a lot.
Today, Big Bend Hospice has 300 staff members specifical-

Compassionate Care

Their Families

ly trained to care for those with life-limiting illnesses, plus more
than 300 trained volunteers. Big Bend Hospice stays focused on
its volunteer roots. Volunteers are the heart of Big Bend Hospice.
Big Bend Hospice is so much more than caring for those
with terminal illness. It is about supporting the patient's fami-
ly. Being there every step of the way. A caregiver can call Big
Bend Hospice anytime of the day or night and there is someone
there to give guidance and support.
As Madison County's hometown hospice, Big Bend Hos-
pice provides compassionate care to individuals with limited life
expectancy and their families. Big Bend Hospice's local care
teams include an experienced RN, a family counselor, a home
health aide, board certified music therapist, a chaplain and
trained volunteers to every patient. Big Bend Hospice provides
emotional support to anyone who has lost a loved one. Big Bend
Hospice is able to go above and beyond the standard hospice
care because of wonderful community 'support.. Donations,
memorial gifts and support from the United Way of the Big
Bend allows Big Bend Hospice to offer such valuable services
as board certified music therapy, grief and loss support, special
support for children through the Caring Tree, and indigent care
and support.

Learning To Live With Autism.

Mother of Two Autistic Boys Offers Valuable Tips to Affected Families

As the number of children
diagnosed with autism increases
every year, it has become a seri-
ous concern for young families
all over the country. In fact, ac-
cording to statistics from the.
U.S. Department of Education

and other governmental agen-
cies, autism is growing at an
alarming rate of 10-17 percent
-every year. The Center for
Disease Control estimates that
as many as 1.5 million people in.
the country are afflicted with-

autism. While much of the dis-
cussion about autism in the me-
dia focuses on the potential
causes of the disorder, there is
little discussion about families
affected by autism.
Parents whose children are
diagnosed with autism often go
through a great deal of confu-
sion and a high level of stress,
Raising a child with autism can
be very demanding and parents,
often find themselves over-
whelmed with the responsibility
involved. Families often find
themselves limited by what they
can and cannot do and this can
lead to feelings of frustration
and even despair.
As the mother of two autis-
tic boys, Kathy Labosh wants to
help other families with autistic
children hy ,haring her own' ex-
periences. "Families some-'
times feel like there is no where
to turn for help," says Labosh,
author of The Child with Autism
Goes to Town, The Child with
Autism at Home, and The Child'
with Autism Goes to Florida
(Labosh Publishing, 2005). "I
want to share what I have
learned with affected families in
hopes that it will make their
lives a little bit easier."
To accomplish her mission,
Labosh .founded Labosh Pub-
lishing which, produces tip

booklets for families. In these
booklets, Labosh gives advice
for all facets of everyday life
with children affected by
autism. "It is my desire for
these tips to serve as trail mark-
ers for families with autistic
children as they venture out into
their communities with their
"children in tow," says Labosh.
Her booklets cover a wide
range of important topics. She
shares how to prepare for family
gatherings, what kinds of toys or
presents children with autism
like, how to keep them happy on
long car or plane rides, what to
do at the grocery store, and good
ways to administer medicine.
As many families do feel
limited by what they can do with
their autistic children, Labosh
wants!people torealize that they
don't have to feel so limited.
"You can go and do just about
anything you want to do with a
child with autism, you just need
to go about it differently and
take your time building up your
skills," says Labosh. She even
has a booklet on visiting .Flori-
da. The booklet, The Child
with Autism Goes to Florida,
evaluates all of the rides at all
major Florida theme parks for
sensory issues and their appro-
priateness for autistic children. -
In addition to offering prac-
tical advice and important tips
for parents, Labosh's booklets
offer hope for parents and fami-
lies learning to cope with
autism. "You really can enjoy a
full and active life in your com-
munity," says Labosh.

The Everyday Living In The Nursing

Home Is Truly A Family Experience
Entering a nursing home for the first time is an emotional time for a resident. In some ways,
becoming a resident in a nursing home is similar to becoming a student for the first time.
We remember our first day of school. Going into a large building, seeing all sorts of students
the same age we were. We didn't know any of those students. Our first day we were informed
of the rules, routines, and schedules of our school.
All of us can think back to that first day. There was always someone sitting in the back cry-
ing. Usually a few of the students would gather around and talk together. Some of the students
would stand apart and look around. Do you remember it was kind of scary?
Imagine how is must be for the person coming to live in the nursing home, for the first time.
The new resident is a stranger to everyone, only for them, this will become their permanent home.
It is reassuring for the resident to know the staff of the nursing home are the most caring and com-
passionate souls to take care of the home and the folks that live in it. However, the resident is still
apprehensive about their new home.
The resident is entering a new phase of their life. They have finally arrived in a nurturing
place that is centered on their quality of life. Within a short time, residents are becoming com-
fortable with their routine. New residents find out quickly that they are important, and their de-
cisions and preferences are respected.
Gradually, the new resident becomes part of the fold, greeting staff and other residents on a
daily basis. The family atmosphere in a nursing home is contagious, the daily chores, the gather-
ings, the celebrations, even the memorials. The everyday living in the nursing home is truly a
family experience; it's just getting through the first day!

"What becomes fragile when we age is not our bodies as much as our egos. The best time to
take some daring steps is when we get older."

Health Centers

Help Fight

Breast Cancer Among

Vulnerable Populations

,The Tri-County Family Health Care, in Green\ ille,
urges women to get a mammogram as part of Breast
Cancer Awareness Month. Community, Migrant and
Homeless Health Centers across the country are on the
front lines helping to fight breast cancer among lo' -in-
come, uninsured %women through prevention and out-
reach. Nationally, Community Health Centers provided
467,600 mammograms to \women last year and had near-
ly 35,400 visits for abnormal breast findings. In addi-
tion, they provided more than 1.56 million pap smears.
,of which 145,0(00 detected an abnormality.
Studies sho%% that health center female patients are
more likely to recei, e mammograms. clinical breast ex-
ams, and pap smears. regardless of \whether the\ ha\e

and accessible health care that health centers pro\ ide is
crucial to fighting breast cancer. When people have a
health care home, theN \ ill use it and stay healthier"
According to the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDCi. breast cancer is the second leading
cause of cancer-related deaths for \,women in the United
States. An estimated 21 2.920I ne\% cases of breast cancer
will be diagnosed in American women in 211006 alone.
African American women are less likely\ than white
women to survive for five \ears after being diagnosed
with breast cancer The file lear sur\ ial rate for African
American women is 76 percent, compared to 90 percent
for white women Nlinorit\ women are also less likely
than white women to have a mamimogram. The tfi\e-\ear

is lower than that of any othie ethnic and racial group.

offs went inside the five-yard

Coordinator Mike Coe, the
strength of Juodelis' kicking
should really help the Cow-

to get the job done."
It was -three and out for'
Mulberry in their fir _t series.
The Cowboys got the ball on
the Mulberry 41, after the punt'
and the whupping began. Don-
tarius Huggins scored first for
the Cowboys with a 17-yard
catch of a Blake Sapp pass.
There was 8:32 left to play in
the first quarter and Madison
led 7-0. Daniel Sanders had a
good night kicking PATs.
Every one was good.
Mulberry got one of their
few first downs on their next
possession. They were forced
to punt from the Cowboy 40.
The punt put Madison on their
own 15. The bad field position
did nothing to slow the steady
march of Cowboy offense.
Harry Reddick carried the ball
out of the red! zone with a 20-
yard rush. A Sapp to Andrew
Edwards pass was good for an-
other first down. The pass-play
combined with a facemask
penalty against Mulberry land-
ed Madison on the Mulberry
43. Travis Arnold ran for eight
then raced away on third down
for another Cowboy touch-
down. With 3:32 left in the
first, Madison was up 14-0.
Mulberry went three and
out in their next series. After
the punt, Madison was on their
own 40. Robert Brown, who
was the Channel Six "Good
Hands Player of the Week,"
caught a Sapp pass for a first
down, but the play was called
back for a holding penalty
against the Cowboys. It was

Horses Headed For Slaughter Get A Second Chance

Double-stacked Cattle Hauler Filled With Horses Headed For Slaughter Overturns And 26 Horses Are Rescu'ed Alive

By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The battle for S1915, a bill
known as the American Horse
Slaughter Prevention Act, cur-
rently in the Senate Energy,
Commerce and Agriculture
Committee, took a weird turn
Wednesday, September 27, and
gained some more supporters.
A double-stacked cattle hauler
filled to the brim with horses
bound for slaughter, overturned
killing many and injuring the
rest. Of the 42 horses on their
way from Oklahoma to a
slaughter facility in Dekalb, Ill.,
26 lived. The ages of the horses
in the load ran the gamut from
yearlings to 20-year olds. There
were several pregnant mares on
the hauler. The
accident happened near St.
Clair, Missouri, and all of the
injured animals are being cared
for by the Human Society of
Missouri, many in Longmead-
ow Rescue Ranch. Longmead-
ow is one of the largest facili-,
ties caring for rescued horses in
the U.S. The organization is
working hard to save these ani-,
mals from being put back on
the road to the slaughterhouse.
The accident has drawn the at-
tention of the country to the
plight of the 90,000 horses be-
ing slaughtered every year for
human consumption overseas.
"A horse trailer accident is
a horse person's worst night-
mare. In this case, it was espe-
cially egregious because the
trailer was double-stacked with
horses and going to a slaughter
house," said Kathy Warnick,

president of the Humane Soci-
ety of Missouri.
Currently, Andrea Allen of
Madison County, along with
many concerned individuals
around the U.S., is waging a
war to get the slaughter of hors-
es for human consumption
banned. There are three for-
eign-owned slaughter plants in
the United States, two in Texas
and the Delkalb, Ill. facility that
slaughter horses and send the
meat overseas for human con-
According to Kerrie
Daniels, a key mover and shak-
er promoting 1915 who spoke
to Senator Ensign's aide recent-
ly, bill S1915 will not come be-
fore the senate before Novem-
ber 2. Senator Ted Steven's
aide told Daniels the bill will
not be voted on by the commit-
tee until at least November 2
possibly not even until after the
elections around November 13.
If the American Horse slaugh-
ter Prevention Act does not get
voted on and passed before the
end of the year, it will have to
start all over again next year in'
front of the House of Represen-
tatives. .
Allen said the important
thing she learned from, all of
her work is they really do be-
lieve they can get the bill in
front of the senate before the
end of the year. To this end, she
urges all concerned folks to
keep up all efforts to bring the
matter to the attention of the
people and congress.
The bill is waiting in com-
mittee to gain enough co-spon-

sors to push it through for a
senate vote. There are five
anonymous holds placed on
S1915, with the exception of
Senator John Comyn of Texas
who's name has been publicly
attached to one of the holds.
Allen and her husband
Jack, have been working tire-
lessly, calling and recalling the
senators on the commerce com-
mittee to ask them to co-spon-
sor the bill. They've been pass-
ing out flyers and packets with
the senators' names and phone
numbers. The packets contain
factual information separating
fact from fiction to help dispel
the myths surrounding horse
slaughter, in the U.S. "Keep
calling and keep the pressure
on," Allen said. "We need more
"The Humane Society of
Missouri vigorously supports
the American Horse Slaughter
Prevention Act. This incident is
just the latest example of why
it is so important to urge the
Senateto pass their version of
the bill," said Warnick.
On October 30, the Breed-
ers' Cup World Thoroughbred
Championships will be held at
Lone Star Park in Grand'
Prairie, Texas. What a weird
coincidence that thoroughbred
racing's championship day is
being conducted within 50
miles of two slaughterhouses
that butcher American horses,
including thoroughbreds, for
human consumption overseas.
One of the slaughterhouses,
.Beltex Corp. in Fort Worth is
around 20 miles west of Lone

Volunteers, several vets and Humane Society Of Missouri Equine Disaster Work-
ers were on the scene of this terrible accident involving a cattle hauler filled with 41
horses on their way to slaughter. Of the 41, 26 were rescued and are being cared for
at various veterinary hospitals and at the Longmeadow Rescue Ranch. The Humane
Society is working hard to keep these horses from being sent back to the slaughter-
house. (Photo submitted by the Humane Society of Missouri)

Star, and Dallas Crown Pack-
aging in Kaufman is about 40
miles southeast of Lone Star.
Local Suwannee Valley
Humane Society animal care
person Barbara Tipple said,
"I'm for the ban against horse
slaughter. I don't believe in
eating horses. It's cruel." Tip-
pie is also a voice for dogs and
cats. Barbara Murphy, local
volunteer at the Suwannee Val-
ley Humane Society used to do
horse rescue work. Murphy
was horrified by the news of
the wreck. "I don't understand
how they can do such a thing,"
Murphy said. "I'm against
slaughtering horses for any

"The horses rescued face a
long, uphill battle to recover
from their injuries., Some of
the mares. are pregnant and
veterinarians are watching
them closely. The Humane So-,
ciety of Missouri is doing
everything in its power to ob-
tain custody of the horses to
provide them a safe haven and
save them from slaughter,"'
said Warnick.
"We are doing everything
possible to prevent these hors-
es from getting back on the
truck to the slaughterhouse,"
said Jean Jae, Director of
Communications for the Hu-

mane Society of Missouri.
The Humane Society of
Mo. is asking for anyone who
can to please help. You can go
to their website and check the
condition of each horse res-
cued from the accident. All 26
have names. Click on horse
heroes and. you. can see a pic-
ture, read about each horse and
their current condition. Any
donation will help. The site is
www.hsmo.org. These horses
will need care. Some are terri-
bly injured. It would- be a trav-
esty for these animals that
have already suffered so much,
to be put back on the truck
bound for the slaughterhouse.
