Man Arrested For Rape


What Will A Penny Really Buy?
This newspaper is urging everyone to t\oe "AGAINST" a half-cent sales tax referendum
on the November 7 ballot. The half-cent sales tax will actually mean a one-cent tax on goods
bought at local businesses. Imagine hot that will affect local businesses. which are already
struggling to get b\ when people (including those who are backing this tax) drive to Live Oak,
Valdosta, or Tallahassee to pay for things that they could have bought in
Madison County. It will be a penny, because the stores cannot col-
lect a half-penny. The extra one cent tax \would make Madison
Perhaps 3ou have seen the brochures in public of-
fices asking that you give a penny the. call it a half-centi
more toward sour taxes to support this referendum. Per-
haps you're seen people \who work in healthcare posi-
tions, for the state, tearing buttons supporting the hospi-
tal tax. Perhaps .\ou have been intimidated or entranced by
these people who use their taxpayer paid government posi-
tions to urge you to ,ote for the tax. We think that since they
--are in the position of public -- not private -- ttorkers that theN
should stop doing this.
Campaign literature distributed by the hospital talks about what the sales tax will generate.
The brochures and the orange fliers are full of hollow promises.
One thing mentioned in hospital literature disseminated is stroke treatment. State protocols
maintain that anyone who has a suspected stroke is required to be transported to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital. which is the only stroke center in the area.
Trauma patients are mentioned in the literature. Trauma patients will still need to be flown
to Gaines\ ille and Jacksonm ille. which hate the onl Level One trauma centers in the area.
Cardiac patients \% ill still need to be transported to Valdosta or Tallahassee because our lo-
cal hospital w ill not hate a cardiologist on staff.
One of the fliers indicates that the hospital employs 120 area residents and treats more than
33.000 patients each sear. The flier neglects to mention that there are less than 100 full-time em-
ployees at the hospital and that the hospital used to employ 125 full-time employees. The hos-
pital staff \was recently cut by approximately one-fifth.
According to more than one source, newt nurses are being hired at the hospital at higher
\ ages than the experienced nurses.
ThI h!o..pi[:il st ll hI s admitted that the half-cent sales ta:.\ ill not generate enough to pa\
for the new hospital. Where will the rest of the money come from? They answer HOPEFUL-
LY through a grant or through donations to the hospital.
The ballot reads that the half-cent \\ill be used only to finance the construction and capital
impro\ements for a netw pubhc or not-for-profit hospital facihty in Madison County. It says that
the surtax SHALL NOT be used to pa the salary of hospital staff or other day-to-day operat-
ing expenses of the hospital facility.
Literature from the -"Friends of the Hospital" maintains that "-a newt hospital will bring an
expansion of its current emergency sern ices and its diagnostic imaging: and it w\\dl add new ser-
\ices like pulmonary rehabilitation and cardiac rehabilitation., omen's health services and
wound care."
Ho%'%tt ill the hospital pay for these new\ services'" They wouldd ha\e to hire more doctors,
nurses and technicians to perform these tasks. Would they hate to go back to the county com-
mission and ask to borrowt money\ to keep their heads abo\ e water.'
Ta\ lor Count\ has a new\ hospital, but by all reports the hospital has failed to improve the
healthcare of the citizens of Taylor County and is losing money.
People from the ladison hospital and its backers have spoken about an OB/GYN program
at the hospital. Would the\ be able to attract an obstetrician in Madison County where they have
failed to do so in TaN lor Couni\. which is a larger count) than Madison?
The hospital is estimating that people \who are not county residents, will pay 60 percent of
the penny sales t:ax. That does not mean that county residents \\ill not pay dithe penny. Ever)

A teenager was seriously injured in a one-vehicle accident
on Sunday, October 28.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Sarah M.

Hospital Tax Will Be A Penny Wasted


To the editor:
A wise man once said the definition of stupidity is to do the
same thing and expect different results. Taylor county (TMH)
has just completed a niice new. hospital like the board of direc-
tors is proposing for Madison county, and that hospital has
failed to improve the health care of the citizens of Taylor coun-
ty and is losing money.
Patient care is basically not affected by the building, but by

doctors and nurses, and we are blessed to have both in Madison
County. For a small hospital to improve services, it must expand
services, and the way to do this is to add doctors trained in oth-
er fields. Taylor County has many beds in their new hospital, but
these beds remain open because they have not added any new
services. They have tried to attract general surgeons, orthopedic
surgeons, OB/GYN's, and radiologists, but they have failed be-
cause of a small population base. These surgeons have remained
in Tallahassee and DMH still transports all their labor, trauma,
stroke and cardiac patients to larger hospitals. The citizens have
a nice new shiny building without added capabilities and no bet-
ter service. We citizens of Madison County should not make the,
same mistakes as our neighbors.
Years ago Madison County Memorial Hospital had an
emergency department, intensive care, unit, labor and delivery,
and more hospital beds. Today we have one wing of beds, an
emergency department, and rooms and rooms of administration.
plus and annex building full of administration. (We ha\ e less
services and beds, but more employees supervising)!!!
What then is the answer? Our other neighbors in Suwannee.
Bradford, and Columbia counties have aligned themselves with
Shands ofGainesville. Other individuals have looked at Madi-
sont County for a new hospital, but have refused to commit as
long as MCMH is hanging on. Larger hospitals have better buy-
ing power, centralized billing, and administration already in
place so they are able:to cut costs. Shands at Live Oak does not
have to pay to have a radiologist on staff, but they are able to
digitally send their X-Rays and Cat scans to Gainesville for in-
terpretation by world-renowned doctors. (Better service for less
money). ,
Let me state for the record that we need a hospital in Madi-
son County! Our current hospital has been run into the ground
by mismanagement from the board of directors and administra-
tion. A new shiny building will not fix these problems, and our
tax money will be wasted. As a taxpayer of this county, I cher-

ish the sunshine law which allows me to examine the count
budget line by line and hold our commissioners accountable fo4
expenditures and wastage. The hospital is asking for our money'
but without open books or accountable. Why are the best nurs^
,es who have been there the longest the lowest paid? Why are in'
experienced nurses being hired at higher rates than senior nurs
es? How much of the budget goes towards administration cost
versus how much goes towards doctors and nurses salaries
How are we sure .our money won't be wasted?... We can't be
sure, but their books are closed?
By state protocols. all suspected strokes in Madison Counfi
ty must be transported to TMH which is the only stroke center
in our area. All baby deliveries will still heed to be transported"
to TMNH because %we will not be able to attract an OB/GYN (asl
the citizens of Taylor County). Trauma patients will still need to
be flown to Gainesville or Jacksonville, our only two level-on,
trauma centers in this area. Cardiac patients will still need to bw
transported to SGMC or TMH or CRMC, because we will nor
have a heart catherization lab or a cardiologist on' staff. Head
trauma will need to be shipped out because we will not have
neurologist on staff.
What will we get for our half-cent? A shiny n~ew building:
without improved health benefits, and job security for the adi
mninistrative staff. What Madison county needs is a professions
ally run hospital, by people who are in the business of running
hospitals: not a hospital run by good intentioned locals w ho are
over their heads in the large corporate world of health care. How'
can I speak \\ ith such confidence ?.......because I have the Taylor."
County model of how not to build a hospital, and the other coun-I
ties' models of how to run a hospital.
Please vote no for this wasteful tax. Let your county cornm-
missioners and chamber of commerce know that you are w anti
ng a professionally run hospital. We can start fresh and really!
have a hospital we can all be proud of.

Just Some Of The Reasons To

Vote Against The Hospital Tax:

*No public tax money should EVER go to a government or non-government
entity that holds secret and closed-door meetings. Newspaper reporters, and
members of the public, have been told to leave board meetings. The public has
been told repeatedly by people associated with the hospital that the Florida
Sunshine Law does not apply to the Madison Hospital.

*The half-cent sales tax is deceiving. According to the County Clerk's Office,
if you buy a one-dollar item, it will cost you eight cents in tax, a cent more than
you are now paying. This would make Madison County the HIGHEST SALT.ES
TAX county in the North Florida-South Georgia area, driving even more peo-
ple out of the county to shop.

*The hospital's Board of Directors is appointed by the Governor and DO
NOT ANSWER TO LOCAL RESIDENTS. They do not operate under the
Sunshine Law and consequently can TAKE OUR TAX DOLLARS and CAN
OPERATE BEHIND CLOSED DOORS and have STATED that they do not
operate under the Florida Sunshine Law.

*Voting against the hospital tax will not close the hospital, but simply make
them more resourceful without putting the burden on the already over-taxed cit-
izens of the county.

*There are a number of options for a new hospital, and the local hospital is
aware of them, yet they prefer maintaining control and TAXING THE LOCAL

IN DEBT and only a change in business practices can correct that problem.

Civil War
For a long time, opponents .of the war in Iraq have claimed
that the conflict has devolved into a civil war; in contrast, pro-
ponents have been in denial. The reason for the controversy is
the idea that outsiders (that would be us in the case of Iraq) have!
no business interfering in \\hat is essentially a "family dispute.".
There is substantial historical precedence for following this
guidance. In 1861, the Confederacy tried to enlist Great Britain!
on their side to oppose the Union or northern cause. There wasi
an economic factor in their reasoning the South exported a lot;
"of cotton that supplied English mills with their raw material.
Queen Victoria's dying husband Prince Albert was instrumentali
in the diplomacy which kept England out of America's fight.!
The cotton issue was resolved when Egypt became the source of,
In 1950 when North Korea attacked the South across the
38th Parallel, America with United Nations backing intervened.:
We got into trouble when we crossed into North Korea and in-
vited Chinese opposition. After three years of bloody conflict,
,we settled down to the previous border where both sides con-,
tinue to standoff half a century later., Was this a civil war or the
action of one neighboring nation invading another?
Following the Korean model, we intervened in Vietnamr
again on the side of the South.versus the Communist North.
What began as a low-intensity insurgent conflict rapidly spurn
out of control. Ultimately the stronger North prevailed in what;
was arguably our nation's worst foreign policy blunder of the
20th Centur.. Was or wasn't this a civil war between factions
of an indigenous people?
There are a lot of open-ended questions about civil wars.
Who are the enemy? Is this simply a "family dispute" or are
there larger implications? What are the factors that create dif-
ferences worth fighting for? When does a dispute cross from
being a low-lying insurgency to a full scale civil war?
It is not unusual for a civil war to change in nature over;
time. We only have to look at our own example for this lesson.
When our Civil War began in 1861, the issue was union or se-
cession. Both,sides felt that in one pitched battle, the issue
would be decided. Following the bloody 1862.battles of Shiloh
and Antietam, the issue evolved to the institution of slavery.
Four years from the start and two-thirds of a million lives later,
the issue was decided. No one in 1861 expected the war to take
on the character that it did.
What does all this tell us about Iraq? Certainly in more than
three years, the nature of the war has changed. Our welcome as
liberators from Saddam's tyranny was short-lived. The first,
wave of insurgent violence was primarily al-Qaeda driven -
Iraq became the front line of the War on Terrorism. Now, most,
of the violence appears to be one Iraqi group fighting another
for political and economic control. It would appear that we are
smack in the middle, of a "family dispute" which any cop will
tell you is a bad place to be. Of course, the interference of Syr-
ia and Iran only serve to complicate matters.
Americans are savvy, patient people with good hearts, but
when it comes to Iraq, there are some things we just don't "get."
We don't "get" the idea that clerics, preachers if you will, incite
their flocks to violence. That doesn't make any sense to an
American. We don't "get" why people can't settle their differ-
ences in an election rather than at war. We don't "get" the idea
of using a religious holiday as an excuse to step-up violence.
For example, we wouldn't dream of using Easter as an opportu-
nity to blow up a few car bombs and slaughter innocent people.
What is going on in Iraq is anarchy and it doesn't make any
sense to us. Granted, the anarchy is isolated to Baghdad, the
Sunni Triangle, and Al Anbar province. The remainder of the.
country including the Kurdish region in the north and Shia re-
gion in the south is relatively peaceful. That's the good news;
the bad news is that the violent areas are the heart of the coun-
try where most people live.
It is difficult to know what to do at this point. It is a noble
thing to help people help themselves, but what happens when
the people you are trying to help aren't holding up their part of
the bargain? It would appear that we need to set some definable
benchmarks to run for the next 12 to 15 months. The Iraqi gov-
ernment, such that it is, will need to meet those benchmarks. If
they fail to do so, then they're on their own. If we are best ad-
vised to keep a smaller, less vulnerable footprint in Iraq after
that time, then it will most likely be in the Kurdish north.
Whoever said "sometimes the best laid plans of mice and
men go astray" must have had Iraq in mind.

Watch Out for
Terrifying Investment Moves
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Now that Halloween is here, you can expect to
see a lot of ghouls, ghosts and gravestones in your
neighborhood but in reality, they'll be of less
importance than the evening's main draw: candy.
However, in real life, if you're going to enjoy life's
treats such as a comfortable retirement votull
need to escape some of the "tricks" such as "scary
investment moves.
Here are a few of these fright-inducing behav-
iors you'll want to avoid:
*Jumping out of the market during difficult
times By almost any measure, 2006 has been a
rough year. We've seen (really) high gas prices, tur-
moil in the Middle East and nuclear posturing from
North Korea.. Given all these gloomy scenarios, you
might think that now is not a good time to invest,
and that you'd be better off heading to the invest-
ment "sidelines." But ou'd be wrong. As bad as this
year seems, we've had plenty of other rocky periods
in our history and smart, patient investors rode out
those times, stayed in the market, and, in most cases,
ended up doing quite well. As an investor, never for-
get that the financial markets are resilient and capa-
le of absorbing all types of bad news.without cap-l
sizing. And even if the market does slump, you'll
want to stay invested, because when it does recover,
as it always has, the biggest gains tend to come early
in the rally.
*Failing to take full advantage. of 401(k) If
you have a 401(k) plan at work, consider yourself
fortunate: Your plan offers tax-deferred earnings
growth and the ability to make pre-tax contribu-
tions. Yet, about 30 percent of eligible employees
don't even participate in their 40 1(k) plan, according
to Hewitt Associates, a consulting firm. Of those
that do take part in their plan, Hewitt reports that
almost 41 percent of their 401(k) holdings were in
company stock much too high a figure. If you have
access to a 401(k) plan, contribute as much as you
can afford, and spread your dollars around among
the available investment options.
*Not makingg out" on IRA Both the tradi-
tional and Roth IRAs offer tax advantages, and can
be funded with money placed in virtually any type
of investment: stocks, bonds, government securities,
etc. Yet, many people don't "max out" on their IRA.
Try to fully fund your IRA as early in the year as
possible, to give your money more time to grow. But
if you can't do that, at least put away enough each
month so that you are taking full advantage of this
excellent retirement savings vehicle.
*Chasing after "hot' stock tips You can get
hot stock tips anywhere: television, the Internet,
magazines, your neighbor the list is almost end-
less. The trouble with a hot tip is that by the time
you invest in the stock, it may already be cooling off
if it ever truly was hot. Furthermore, a hot tip may
not be of much value if the stock is not suitable for
your individual needs.
If you can avoid these and other scary invest-
ment moves, you can make progress toward your
long-term goals and that's not a frightful prospect
at all.

Serving Individual Investors Since 1871 I,

A twenty-five year Certificate of Appreciation and anniver-
sary flowers were presented to Princess and Joe Akerman by the
Madison County Republican Executive Committee. The Master
of Ceremonies was Mark Branham.
M.C. Branham noted the anniversary, at the "Rally In The
Park" by the Republicans at an earlier event.
Akerman, a longtime instructor at North Florida Communi-
ty College, has recently retired from that institution. As an ad-
junct visiting instructor, he, however, continues to teach a course
or two.
Joe and Princess became State Committee members for
Madison County twenty-five years ago.
The Republican Party had been held together by Azel Zip-
perer, and then by his daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs.
Robert Andrews.
The Akermans took over from the Andrews family at a time
when Republican registration was 17. The Republican registra-
3 tion in Madison County now totals 2000.

After 25 years of excel-
lence, the Downtown Festival
& Art Show, presented by the
City of Gainesville's Division

During the course of this campaign one thing I keep hearing is "You politicians promise
whatever you think will get us to vote for you." That is not what I am about. I have a true concern
about the direction Madison County is heading. As I traveled throughout this nation, I have taken
time to observe how other communities operate. Especially, the ones that have thriving economies
and good citizen participation in their efforts to provide a better life for their citizens. I have attempt-
ed to share these observations with our county commission. On every attempt, I have been basical-
ly ignored. The more I watch the direction we are headed, the more I see us becoming the commu-
nities I didn't find appealing places that were full of bitter citizens, basically ignored and mad their
community was becoming a place they no longer recognized. This is the main reason I find myself
in this race. We keep hiring these outside experts to tell us how to become an Ocala, or Lake City.
Well, maybe we don't want to be like those places. Maybe the citizens want to have more of a voice
in what Madison County does, or doesn't become.
This is my contract with the voters of District Two. Items I feel need to be addressed to
improve our County, cut it out, keep it and after four years you do not feel that I have made a deter-
mined effort on your behalf, then fire me for breach of contract. I am dead serious about my com-
mitment to the citizens. I am not running because I need a job, or health insurance for my family. I
am the owner of a very successful business and will bring those management skills to this job. We
can run Madison County as a business, a successful business. I am prepared to put the same time
and effort it took to grow my business, into the problems we are facing in Madison County. I really
think we are at a point of no return. We change our direction, or face losing the Madison County that
is so dear to us, longtime as well as new citizens.
I will facilitate a more open dialogue between the citizens and the Board of
County Commissioners. Move meeting times to evenings to allow citizens to participate. Televise
meetings on local cable access. At least post the agenda of upcoming meetings.

Personally research and find large and small businesses to bring to Madison
County. We aren't all rocket scientists. There has to be something for everyone. We need skilled
labor. positions as well as entry level jobs. I would rather we recruit ten companies to hire forty
employees, than one big corporation that hires 400. We also need to not give away the farm just to
entice a company to come to Madison. How about we dangle the tax break carrot in front of them?
Bring your company to Madison, hire so many of our citizens, be a good productive member our
county, and then you earn the tax breaks.

Expand economic development in the area of what I call Agri-Eco tourism. I have
spoken at numerous commission meetings on this subject. Our county is rich in natural resources.
We have miles of oak canopied roads meandering through a countryside full of agricultural heritage.
Rivers, fresh water lakes and springs a virtual outdoor playground. Now that the bike trail has been
put upon us, let's explore ways citizens in that area can benefit financially. I know most of you ihink
who in the world would want to ride a bicycle through the woods. There are a bunch of 'em and they
will find their way here. Because most of us have always lived in the country, it is hard to imagine
what a true treasure we live in. Growing tourism presents-a perfect opportunity for the establishment
of family businesses, such as, you pick vegetables, bike and canoe rentals, home-style cafes that
offer picnic baskets and tasty local cuisine. How about horse rentals for trail rides, the county is per-
fect for these type establishments. The people come, spend money and.go home. The ones that find
a liking for our way of living move in and become good, productive members of our community.
Not someone coming to Madison looking to exploit our people and resources.

Continued in Friday's E.R.
If you are a concerned citizen who agrees that I deserve a chance to prove we can work
together to benefit all Madison County Citizens, then call someone you know in district
two and encourage them to vote.

Why People Need To Get The Flu Shot

By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Flu season has kicked off
in the month of October and
will continue until the month
of May. Many people want to
reduce their chance of getting
sick so they should visit the
Madison County Health De-
partment or private physicians
to receive a two or 10-year-flu
vaccination. The flu shot is es-
pecially recommended for
people who are 50 years of
age or older, women who are
or will be pregnant during the
flu season -and adults and chil-
dren six months and older
with chronic heart disease.
Florida State University
(FSU) Nursing Student Katie
Kilsoile stated, "The flu shot
is going to keep people from
getting the flu, keep people
healthy and it will help pre-
vent spreading the flu to other
',2.-:-^ ;..

' ."? '* '" . .

people. People who are in the
Health Care field need to get
their flu shot and advocate that
the general population needs
to get it as well."
Additionally, people with
lung conditions including
asthma, metabolic diseases
such as diabetes, chronic kid-
ney disease, or weakened im-
mune system such as those
with HIV or from medica-
tions, and any kind of brain or
spinal cord disorders and all
children 6-23 months of age
should get the flu shot.
Within about two weeks,
after receiving the flu shot, the
shot is fully effective, and usu-
ally the effect lasts for six
months or longer. People who
receive -a flu shot have a pro-
tection rate of 50-80 percent.
Assistant Professor of
FSU College of Nursing Kath-
leen Williamson stated, "If

you don't get the flu you can
be a lot sicker, it can spread
the flu to others. Children and
older adults should really get
the flu vaccine because they

are more likely to be affected
the flu."
People who are coming
down with the flu experience
more severe cold symptoms

The management depart-

staff in order to do so. As with
a hometown, nursing home
managers are similar to town

Also, people experience se-
vere muscle aches, headache,
cough, sore throat, and a gen-
eral miserable feeling. Flu
symptoms usually last two-

How do you get rid of the

flu once you have it? People
can treat the flu with lots of
rest, fluids and Tylenol.
FSU Nursing Student,
Nakisha Kinlaw stated, "The
flu shot will help cut down on
being sick. The flu goes
around like wildfire and that's
why we call it the flu season."

At one time, high blood pressure was ignored
in older adults because it was thought to be a nor-
mal part of aging. No more.
Blood pressure control is important as you
age, even when only one of the blood pressure
readings is in the hypertensive range. After age
55, it's not unusual for the diastolic pressure, the
bottom reading, to stay the same or fall while the
systolic pressure the top number, keeps climb-
ing. The diastolic pressure is the force applied
when your heart is at rest. The systolic pressure is
the force applied to vessels when your heart mus-
cle contracts.
For older adults, reducing systolic blood
pressure is well worth the effort. The October is-
sue of Mayo Clinic Health Letter lists potential

benefits from lowering systolic hypertension.
Studies have shown that the change may:
Reduce stroke risk by about 30 percent
Reduce heart attack risk by about 23 per-
Reduce risk of heart failure by about 55 per-
Reduce dementia risk by about half
Delay kidney failure or possibly prevent it
Prevent vision loss due to severe hyperten-
Talk with your doctor about how to manage
your blood pressure. The vast majority of older
adults can reach healthier blood pressure levels
with a combination of lifestyle changes and blood
pressure-lowering drugs.

Madison Senior Citizens Watch For Identity Theft And Fraud

Don't let strangers cap-
ture any of your information.
There have been so many cas-
es recently where people have
gotten into financial trouble.
They will sell your informa-
tion," he said.
If a resident is ever a vic-
tim of identify theft or fraud,
they need to contact the Madi-
son County Sheriff's Office or
Madison Police Department
and report the crime. Victims
need to provide law enforce-
ment agencies with as much

documented evidence as pos-
sible, obtain a copy of the po-
lice report and obtain the tele-
phone number of the fraud in-
vestigator and provide it to
Also, victims should con-
tact all creditors, inform their-
local bank and cancel all
checking accounts, obtain a
new automatic teller machine
(ATM) card and contact the
social security administration
to inform them of the fraudu-
lent use of the social security

Bucher stated, "Seniors
need to be mindful that there
are some people out there who
aren't out there to help you.".

On Friday, October 27,
Madison County Sheriff Pete
Bucher addressed seniors at
the Madison Senior Citizen
Council about identity theft
and fraud.
Identity theft and fraud is,
where someone wrongfully
obtains and uses another per-
son's personal data in some,
way that involves fraud. Iden-
tity theft is one of the fastest
growing crimes in Americans.,
and there are approximately
500,000 new victims each
IdentiIt theft and fraud:
are usually committed in pub-
lic places where a criminal
may watch a resident as they
punch in their credit card
number. Offenders often go-
"dumpster diving" where they
rummage through garbage
cans and try to obtain copies
of, residents' checks, credit
card numbers or .bank .state-
ments that 'bear their name.,
address or 'eVeid telephone

Sheriff Pete Bucher stat-
ed, "You need to be careful
with your identity,. especially
over the phone because you
don't know who your talking
to over the phone."
In addition, criminals are
known for stealing wallets and
purses, establishing a cellular
phone service in a victim's
name, open a bank account in
your name and write bad.
checks on that specific ac-
count or violate your personal
privacy by pilfering through
bank statements, credit card
statements or pre-approved
credit card applications and
Bucher noted, "A lot of
times and in most cases, its
someone you know or who is
close to you that is the culprit,
not people you don't know.
Identity theft can be reported
where you live, not where it
happened because you may be
.the victim."
Seniors should always
limit the amount of confiden-
tial or personal information
that they carry in their wallets


or purses. Never carry bank
account numbers, personal
identification numbers (PINs),
birth certificates or social se-
curity cards.
Also, elderly -residents
should consider canceling any
credit cards that have not been
used in the past six months
and credit card applications
should be destroyed, prefer-
ably shred, when received in
the mail and are not used.
It may be months before
you realize that you have been
a victim of identity theft. On a
yearly basis, it wouldn't hurt
to get your credit checked,"
said Bucher..
Additionally, seniors
should be wary of putting their
telephone numbers on person-
al checks. When traveling,
residents should have their
mail held at the Madison
County Post Office and if
monthly credit card or bank
statements do not arrive at the
normal time of the month, res-
idents should call the credit
card company immediately
and ask about it.

locker rooms to dry out and
The real story of the
game was how each team
handled adversity. The rain
was as hard as Carroll has
ever seen it. "It looked to me
like the kids were having,
fun," Coach Mike Coe said.
"They were sliding around
out there like they were en-
joying themselves."
While the Cowboys were
having a good time, Dixie
County was turning the ball
over, and over, and over,
again. The Bears had 10
turnovers in the game. In fact,
the Bears .fumbled the first
play of the game. Madison re-
covered on the Dixie 24. Har-
ry Reddick, (Thunder), took
the ball to the three-inch line
and Thunder scored with

10:09 left in the first period.
The Daniel Sanders PAT was
good and the score was 7-0.
Dixie County went three
and out, a first of many, and
Madison got great field posi-
tion. Chris Thompson,
(Lightning), made his' entry
with a big first down on the
Bears' 10. Thunder came in
and took it to the five. Light-
ning scored with 5:39 left in
the first. The PAT was good
and it was 14-0 Cowboys.
After another three and
out for the Bears, Madison
got lucky. The kick went
straight into the air, took a
huge Cowboy bounce and af-
ter a personal foul was called
against Dixie, the Cowboys
were on the Bear 10. It was

On the Bears' next pos-

in 10 carries. Reddick had 40
yards in six carries and: Sapp
was three for four passes for a
total of 41 yards and a TD.
A weather alert came in
during the half-time break.
Winds were predicted up to
40 mph during the second
half, along with torrential
rain. The wind was never that
strong, but the lights on the
home- side of the field were
knocked out. The rain actual-
ly died out and stopped dur-'

second half. All players got
some time on the field. Fresh-
man Justin Hampton scored
with four minutes left to play
in the game. The final score
was 46-0.

said after the game. "The
players responded like we ex-

Monday, October 16. The
young Cowboy team is out of
the running for state champi-

well, .placing eighth in the re-

This also included a bonus for

the Cowboys. They placed one
step higher than arch-rivals for
the 2006 season, Taylor Coun-
ty. This was the first time all

Trent Ragans scored an 85, as'
did Jamison Thompson. Jor-

player in the rankings for

"This was our best season
ever," said coach Bruce

our team was a sophomore

Cowboy golf was 19-15. That

Florida State Goes Black

By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing Inc.
The Florida State Semi-
noles dropped the garnet and
gold uniforms for black . .
but just for one game. The
new color debuted at the re-
cent Boston College game.
The Noles lost but the
uniforms were a hit. Tee shirts
were on sale at the game with
some wild slogans derived
from the new colors. ,The
shirts sported sayings like,
"Experience my dark side," or
"Doak At Dark", "MIB Fear
the dark," "Fear the men in
black," and many more.
The theme for the game

was "Unconquered." That re-
ferred to the original Seminole
Indian tribe that never signed
a treaty with the United Stares
and remained unconquered
even after three wars. The
black uniforms with garnet
numbers with gold trimming
were worn as a tribute to the
Seminole Tribe. The colors are
based on the traditional colors
of the Seminole flag. The
pants read "Seminoles" down
one leg and "Unconquered"
down the other. During the
game, representatives from
the Florida Seminole tribes
were recognized and honored.
Coach Bobby Bowden

said the uniform is very spe-
cial and will not be worn more
than once in a season and not
at all in some seasons.
Madison's Geno Hayes
was out with an LCL ligament
knee injury, but Hayes was on
the sidelines in the new uni-
form and a set of crutches.
Hayes said he'll be out for two
more weeks and back in time
for the Wake Forest game.
"I'm doing light workouts and
getting treatments on my
knee," Hayes said.
Madison's Charlie Gra-
ham and Mikhal Kornegay
saw playing time in the new

Writing your Classified ad

Put yourself in the buyer's shoes. What
would you want to know about an item you were
interested in buying?

Include the brand name (manufacturers
spend millions promoting the name and enhancing
the image of their products, so take advantage of
it). Would you rather buy a refrigerator or a

* List the item's best features and what makes
it different from other items in the same cate-
gory. (Remember, the more you tell, the clearer pic-
ture a potential buyer gets, making it easier for
you to sell.)

* Try not to use abbreviations. Some readers
of your ad may be confused by them.

a Include the price of the item. If you're flexi-
ble on price, try "best offer" or "negotiable."

* Include your phone number and the best
times to call.

* Ask for the sale. One gentleman put "Buy
this car!" in his ad, and someone sure did.

held to install new officers and
three new members of the

grdup sat down to a delicious
steak and baked potato dinner,
all those that wanted to, tried
their hand at cattle judging.
A small group of show
heifers was penned up behind

the office. Carol Gibson was
the winner of the judging.
New officers were in-
stalled after the dinner. Clint
Rogers is the new Madison
Cattlemen's Association presi-
dent. Phillip Hackle is the vice
president. Jack McCleod is the
new secretary/treasurer. Three
new directors were, also an-
nounced. They are Tim Price,
Troy Platt and Bill Ramsey.
New vice president
Phillip Hackle said he and the
new president Clint Rogers
have plans for improving the

association's involvement in
the community. Presently, the
one community event the

Steer Class at the annual
North Florida Livestock Show
and Sale. "What I'm trying to
do is get our association more
involved in the community,"
Hackle said.

tlemen's Association is a
member of the Florida Cattle-
men's Association. The FCA
was created as a non-profit in-
dustry-related organization in
1934 that covers the entire
state. The FCA devotes itself
entirely to promoting and pro-
tecting the ability of Florida
cattlemen to produce and
market their product, which is-
The FCA has a great web-
site with lots of information
about the group. It's located at
floridacattlemen.org. On the
website, the mission of the
FCA is stated, "The FCA
strives to support cattle ranch-
ing families as an integral part
of Florida's economy and are
leaders in protecting the nat-
ural landscape that is our
The FCA is devoted to
helping cattle farmers all over
the state and to maintaining
Florida as a cattle-producing
area in spite of tourism. Cattle
have been raised in Florida
longer than in any other state
in the U.S.
"Though it may seem un-
apparent today in the mist of
many tourist attractions and
urban communities, Florida's
landscape was once a vast
area for livestock pastures,"

says the FCA's web site. "In
1521 Ponce de Leon brought
horses and cattle to Florida,
making it the oldest cattle
raising state in the country.
For many years the cattle in-

dustry has contributed to
Florida both environmentally
and economically. Multi-gen-
erational family ranches have
cared for our land and created
employment for many Florida
residents over time. As Flori-
da matured, tourism expanded
and urbanization began to
cover much of the green open
land that had contributed to
Florida's unique environment
for so long."
Raising cattle is one of
the "big three" farming indus-

tries in Madison County,
along with forage crops and
timber. But, you don't have to
own cattle to be a member of
the Madison County Cattle-
men's Association. You can
be an associate member and
enjoy the benefits of FCA
membership. FCA members
receive a monthly magazine,
"Florida Cattlemen and Live-
stock Journal", an award-win-
ning publication about the is-
sues associated with raising
cattle in Florida.
