Remember The Alamo
Joe Akerman loaned nme a book to read on the story of
Texas' independence. "Loan Star Nation: How a Ragged Army
of Volunteers Won the Battle for Texas Independence arid
Changed America" by H. W. Brands (Doubleday, 2004) is a
well written, often light account of the founding of Texas and its
struggle for independence from Mexico. Having never lived in
Texas, I was only vaguely aware of this story. Brands' account
helped me fill in a lot of blanks.
There were a lot of colorful characters that influenced ear-
ly Texas history. The stories of William Travis, Jim Bowie,
Davy Crocket and their martyrdom at the Alamo are well chron-
icled in legend and fact. But Brands book is primarily about
two men, Stephen Austin and Sam Houston, and their crucial
roles in the colonization of the Texas territory and subsequent
struggle for independence.
In the aftermath of the War of 1812, the Texas territory was
sparsely populated by a few hardy souls and assorted Native
American tribes dominated by the warlike Comanche. The peo-
ple of Mexico had by and large not ventured into this northern
territory because it was so remote from the safety and com-
merce of their capital. Stephen Austin inherited the dream of a
Texas colony from his late father and set about putting this idea
in motion. He sought and received permission from first Spain
and then the newly formed Mexican government to introduce
settlers into this strange and %wonderful new land,
The lure of new land beckoned to immigrants -from the
American southwest Arkansas, Louisiana and Tennessee.
They departed by ship from New Orleans or o\ erland through
Nacogdoches to the virgin territory of what is today east Texas.
Austin organized this effort on both ends and ruined his frail
health as a result.
By the beginning of the 1830s, transplanted Americans out-
numbered indigenous Mexicans .and Indians in Texas by ten to
one. In MeiJco Citi, rotating governments finally settled upon
military hero Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna as its leader where-
upon he promptly suspended the 1824 constitution and assumed
dictatorial powers. Far to the north, the new Texans opposed
this heavy-handed approach to government. Santa Anna
smelled rebellion and organized an army to quell the insurrec-
tion. When Austin tried to intervene to preserve peace, he was
imprisoned for his efforts. .:.. !. ; ..--- -.
Back in Texas, a ne\\l) formed provisional government ap-
pointed former Tennessean Sam Houston as its military com-
mander. Houston, a prot6g6 of now President Andrew Jackson,
won the job by default he was the only leader with any mili-
tary experience. Houston was given a nearly impossible job -
organizing the Texas volunteers was no easier than herding
stray cats on a flatbed.
A group of volunteer militia under the direction of Travis,
Bowie and later Crocket made the mistake of defending the
Alamo at San Antonio de Bexar. In March 1836, they were
overwhelmed by a vast Mexican army. Santa Anna vowed "no
quarter" to the rebels and they were slaughtered to the man.
That was a better fate than awaited James Fannin at La Bahia de
Goliad. A week after Fannin surrendered his company of 400
men, they were executed under orders of the brutal Mexican
What was left of the ragged Texas force began a strategic
retreat. Houston realized that the fate of the Alamo and Goliad
awaited his remaining Texas army if he immediately confront-
ed Santa Anna, so he adopted the same strategy as Washington
did in the early days of America's revolution retreat and sur-
vive. In the process, three things happened. First, Houston's
force began to gain strength as more volunteers joined from the
east. Second, Santa Anna's army lost strength as the long march
took its toll And third, Santa Anna made a critical mistake he
divided his force.
Now with the numbers and surprise in his favor, Houston
brought the two armies to battle at the mouth of the San Jacinto
River just east of the city which today bears his name. It was a
rout in favor of the Texans who were spoiling to avenge their
fallen comrades. The cry "Remember the Alamo" would forev-
er be part of the American lexicon. Santa Anna was captured
and spared to be used as a hostage to restore peace.
In 1845, two former Spanish territories were awarded state-
hood in the growing United States. Today, Texas and Florida
are the second and fourth most populous states in the union; be-
fore long, Florida will vault past New York into third place.
Both still retain their Hispanic culture and represent the heart of
the Southern wave that has influenced growth in our nation over
the past thirty years.

Johnson said that the best-selling item this year was a chil-
dren's computer that was for sale.
Robert Petrillo, manager of CVS, said that sales were good
this year. He said that there are no plans for special sales, other
than the ones CVS has every week.
"We did pretty good this
year," Brandon Floyd, an em-
ployee at Madison Sporting
Goods, said. "We sold a bit of

stuff like that."

Attorney Arrested Modison County Crtrne Report
Attorney General Charlie Crist announced on November 21
the arrest of an attorney from Bay County on multiple charges of
producing child pornography, possession of child pornography
and promoting the sexual performance of a child. Investigators
with Crist's Child Predator CyberCrime Unit discovered Paul
Richard Parker, Jr.'s distribution and promotion of pornograph-
ic videos of children during an undercover online investigation.
Parker, 42, placed pornographic videos on the Internet,
where they were discovered by a Child Predator CyberCrime in-
vestigator who was able to trace them back to Parker. Search
warrants executed at Parker's Panama City residence uncovered
hundreds of images and videos of child pornography on his
computer and other equipment. Investigators also discovered
that Parker created child pornography by enticing young boys
over the Internet to perform sexual acts via webcam. Parker
would then videotape these acts and make pornographic videos
from them. He was arrested by officers with the Child Predator
CyberCrime Unit and the Bay County Sheriff's Office. Parker
specializes in personal injury law.
"Child pornography is horrific sexual exploitation of real
children, who are real victims," said Crist. "We will continue to
shut these perverted operations down."
Parker is currently being held at the Bay County Jail. He is
charged with nine counts of using a child in the production of
child pornography and two counts of promoting child pornogra-
phy, both second-degree felonies, as well as two counts of trans-
mitting child pornography and 233 counts of possession of child
pornography, both third-degree felonies. If convicted on all
charges, he could face life in prison. The case will be jointly
prosecuted by Crist's Office of Statewide Prosecution and the
14th Circuit State Attorney's Office.
The Child Predator CyberCrime Unit's mission is to protect
children from computer-facilitated sexual exploitation. The unit
does this by working cooperatively on a statewide basis with law,
enforcement agencies and prosecutors to provide resources and
expertise, while preventing the spread of these crimes through
education and community a\ areness. Parker's arrest is the 30th
made by officers with the unit since its inception in October
2005. The Child Predator CyberCrime Unit is a member of the
Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) of North

Madison County Health Department
Receives Grant. To Fund Women's Health Care
The Florida Department of Health (DOH) Division of Family Health Services announced
this week that the Madison and Jefferson County Health Departments were awarded $10,000
to fund a women's health community demonstration project. The Madison/Jefferson project,
one of only ten awards given statewide, will provide direct care services to women who can-
not otherwise afford treatment.
"Any time we can bring more money into our counties to address public health issues,
we feel truly blessed," said Kim Barnhill, Administrator of the Madison and Jefferson Coun-
ty Health Departments. "Even though it is a, small grant, it will make a tremendous differ-
ence in lives of our citizens."
It's no secret that the overall health status of Madison and Jefferson Counties is poor, and-
statistics suggest that health disparities are a key challenge. Madison and Jefferson have
some of the worst rates of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke, obesity, and infant mor-
tality in the state, so health advocates' in both counties are working'to establish a system of
care that will make positive changes for the future.
"Healthy women are vital to the strength of our community," Barnhill said. "We must
continue making strides to improve the.health of all women, and it's vitally important to fo-
cus our efforts on the health disparities that exist in the African-American population."
With funding from the new grant, the health department will provide, services to women
who are identified through existing outreach projects. Several grant projects are already at
work in the community, including two "Closing the Gap grants." One of these grants, re-
ceived by the Healthy Start Coalition of Jefferson, Madison, and Taylor-Counties, provides
preconceptional and women's health education. The Big Bend Rural Health Network man-
ages the other grant project, which focuses on diabetes management and prevention. In ad-
dition to funding outreach workers, these grants are also focusing on developing "health min-

"This new grant will allow us to provide both dental and primary care services to
women who need it most," said Shannon Jacobs, Director of Operations at the health de-

all, goodwill toward mankind.
The holidays for our elders in
the nursing home can some-
times be less than joyful. This
concept may be difficult for us
to accept, however; it is a real-
ity for our elderly. Most of the
famous holiday carols we are
familiar with were written and
played many years ago. This
music will bring memories
from past holidays involving
homes. family, and friends. For
the elder in the nursing home
their old home is gone, family

feel joy and peace, and are
thankful for the blessings they
have received, yet there is

of the season.
This is where we as indi-
viduals can create our own pro-
gram for our elders in the nurs-
ing homes. The next time we
are concocting our famous cre-

the residents, name tags won't

Prepare For Possible Flu Pandemic
No one knows if bird flu (avian or H5N1 influenza) will be the
next crisis. Experts worry that it could turn into a worldwide out-
break among humans a pandemic. Pandemics are not new. Within
the past century, Spanish flu, Asian flu, and Hong Kong flu ac-
counted for millions of deaths worldwide. If an outbreak of this
magnitude happens, experts agree that the result could be wide-
spread disruption of businesses through the absence of between 20
percent and 50 percent of the working population for two to six
weeks, loss of service from suppliers, loss of emergency services,
and stress on key-business units.
With this in mind, Mayo Clinic Health Management Resources'
has published an eight-page report titled "Pandemic Flu A Special
Report on How to Prepare" that draws upon the experience of Mayo
Clinic experts in infectious diseases and emergency preparedness as,
well as the latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization
(WHO). This report provides businesses with reliable and practical
advice that can be applied to almost any broad-based disaster that
would disrupt normal public services.
The "Pandermic Flu" report ,will provide organizations with a
key communication vehicle for business continuity plans. For more
infonnation about providing the "'Pandemic Flu" report or any of
these services for your organization. call 1-800-430-9699 (toll free.
"Concern about the disease has intensified recently for several
reasons.'" according to Malo Clinic infectious diseases specialist
James Steckelbere. NI D "'One is the appearance of several human:
cases of H5N1 influenza in regions previously unaffected by bird
flu. Another is the news that researchers ha'e determined that the
1918 flu pandemic, lhich killed 50 million people. \%as a bird flu
that jumped to humans. Health officials and agencies worldwide
feel it %would be irresponsible not to prepare."
This report tells employers and employees what to expect in
the event of a pandemic, answers frequently asked questions on
bird flu, helps people cope. with the emotional stress of a disaster,
and provides action-oriented information on how to prepare, in-

Cowboys Go Down Fighting
Bolles Wins North Florida Championships 28-14
By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The game was billed as
the North Florida Champi-
onships; Bolles versus the
Madison County Cowboys in
the state semi-final game,
winner to head for Miami to
play for the state champi-
onship. Madison fought hard,
but was outgunned by the
Bolles quarterback Randy
Hardin. The final score was
28-14, with Bolles taking the
Bolles was undeniably
good, but the Cowboys com-
mitted three turnovers in the
game, successfully shooting
themselves in the foot. Bolles
came out gunning for a win
and scored immediately, less
than two minutes after the
kickoff. The Cowboys then
handed Bolles another touch-
down by fumbling on the 12-
yard line. The Bolles quarter-
back ran the ball in for six.
After less than four minutes
of play, Bolles was up the 14
points that killed Madison. If
the Cowboys had not come
out and coughed up these cru-
cial 14 points, the game
would have been a 14-14 tie
at the end of regulation play.
Coach Frankie Carroll was
right. Bolles was not better
than the Cowboys. It just took
the Madison players too long
to realize this. Once the boys
realized they could compete,
they had already dug them-
selves too deep a hole.
"We played hard, but we
got ourselves into a hole ear-
ly," Carroll said. "Every time
we'd get a play, they'd get a
, big play too."
Madison's first score
came with 1.43 left in the first
half. With a good block by
Jaccobi McDaniel, Chris.
Thompson scored. The PAT
by Daniel Sanders was good,
and the Cowboys had cut the
Bulldogs lead by seven.
But Bolles bounced right

Madison received after
the halftime break. Bolles
continued to avoid kicking,

Bernard Brinson. They'd
tried onside kicks earlier in
the game and after the half
opted for a short pooch kick
that put the Cowboys on their
own 28. Blake Sapp started
passing and completed one to
Travis Arnold for a big first
down. Jordan Johnson got an-
other Cowboy first down. But
the long drive ended when the
Cowboys turned the ball over
on downs on the Bulldog 30.
Madison's defense turned
up the heat on Bolles in the
second half. The Cowboy
"D" shut down the Bolles
running game, forcing them
to pass again and again. The
Bulldogs did not score for the
entire third quarter. Sapp
tossed one to Chris Thomp-
son, a one-handed grab
named the Channel Six "Re-
ception of the Week."
Thompson galloped down the
sidelines to score in the open-
ing seconds of the fourth
quarter. The score went to 21-
14 and the Cowboys were re-
But as Carroll said, every
time the Cowboys would
make a big play, Bolles
would answer with one of
their own. With 8:45 left in
the game, Bolles scored. The

Giving Financial Gifts?
Know the Rules
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
The holidays are approaching rapidly, so shopping
may be on your mind. Of course, you can find many dif-
ferent types of thoughtful presents that will "make the
day" of your loved ones. But why not give a gift that can
brighten their entire future?' Specifically, why not give a
financial gift that has long-term benefits?
Before you give shares of stock or other financial
assets, however, ou1 night \\ant to brush up on some of
the rules governing financial gift giving.
Understanding gift taxes
When you give someone a "typical" holiday present -
clothing, electronics, books, gift certificates, etc. you
normally don't have to worry about any taxes, except
sales tax. But if you want to give away stock or other
securities, you will have to consider "gift tax" rules,
which are basically. designed to prevent people from
removing most of the assets from their taxable estates
through large gifts.
However, gift tax rules are, for most people, quite
generous. Consider the following:
You can give up to $12,000 to an individual in a tax
.year without facing any tax consequences. In fact, you
can make $12,000 gifts to as many different people as
you'd like in a tax year without incurring gift taxes. You
can give your spouse a gift of any amount without facing
You and your spouse can each give the same individ-
ual $12,000, for a total of $24,000, gift-tax free.
Giving Stocks? Do Your Homework
If you decide to give stocks, you have to keep a few
things in mind. Make sure you know what you originally
paid for the stock (its "tax basis"), how long you've held
it and its fair market value at the date of the gift. The
recipients will need this information to determine gains or
losses if they decide to sell the stock you've given them.
Both you and your loved ones can gain valuable tax
advantages from your gift of stock. When you gave your
shares of stock, you also gave away your "holding peri-
od" the amount of time you've held the stock. So, even
if the recipients own the stbck only a day or so before
selling it, they'll just have to pay the long-term capital
gains tax rate, which may be considerably lower than
their current income tax rate. And by giving shares of
stock, you also will benefit because you'll avoid the cap-
ital gains taxes you'd have to pay if you sold the stock
yourself. Before taking any action, though, consult with
your tax adviser.
Gifts for IRAs
You don't have to actually give stocks to help your
intended recipients make progress toward their financial
goals. As an alternative, consider giving your loved ones
money to add more shares of stock (or bonds or other
investments) to an IRA. For 2006, investors can put up to
$4,000 in a Roth or traditional IRA (or $5,000 if they are
50 or older). If your intended recipients have fully fund-
ed their IRAs for 2006, they can apply your gift for 2007,
for which the contribution limit is the same.
The holidays are only here for a short while but your
financial gifts to your loved ones can make a difference
in their lives for years to come.

laughter rings freely as the cow-
boys. in the "Wild West" go
about saving Christmas. Santa
Claus makes a special appear-
ance in the park to listen to all
the boys and girls after they've
wound their way through the
beautiful "Santa Land."
