There's a tear in your eye,
And I'm wondering why,
For it never should be there at all.
With such pow'r in your smile,
Sure a stone you'd beguile,
So there's never a teardrop should fall.
When your sweet lilting laughter's
Like some fairy song,
And your eyes twinkle bright as can be;
You should laugh all the while
And all other times smile,
And now, smile a smile for me.
When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, 'tis like the mor in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.

Like the linnet's sweet song,
Crooning all the day long,
Comes your laughter and light.
For the springtime of life
Is the sweetest of all
There is ne'er a real care or regret;
And while springtime is ours
Throughout all of youth's hours,
Let us smile each chance we get.
When Irish eyes are smiling,

Response To

Denny's Letter
Last night, Friday, March 9, 2007 at about 11:30 pm. Four
of us in a group entered Denny's on highway 53 S. At about the
same time we (Causacian) walked in and were seated; a second
group of about 10+ (Black) came in. The waitress was Black.
She did come over to us first; took our drink.orders. Then; she
went over to the Black group took their drink order. Then; in-
stead of taking our dinner order the girl took their dinner order
first! We were outraged but stayed polite to her. The waitress
did not take our order until their dinners were served. The wait-
ress finally came over to our table and took our dinner order and
of course by that time we were out-raged that just because we
were white; she waited on the Black group first. This is RE-
the letter in Letters to Editor about the black being discriminat-
ed against in the restaurant, I knew I had to respond with what
happened to us. I am so tired of black people whining all the

The department was originally started in the late n the 1950's or
early 1960's. The original fire truck was acquired from the Di-
vision of Forestry and was parked under a pecan tree near the
U.S. 90 and C. R. 255 intersection. From there, the truck was
staged at the homes of members available to respond to fire
calls. City Hall was then built and the addition completed to
stage the fire truck in the mid to late 70's. In 2000, the new
7,000 square foot public safety building was built. "From a`
shade-tree fire department, it has grown to a full-service depart-
ment. The department now has three Class Apumper trucks, one
6,200 gallon tanker, one brush attack truck, and one brush tanker
The department is comprised of men, women, and teens
from all walks of life. They started a Junior Firefighter Program
in 1980. Junior members have advanced to become profession-
al firefighters, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, and
special law enforcement officers. In 2006, an Honor Guard was
formed to represent the fire department in special community
services. In mid-2006, the Ladies Auxiliary was reorganized to
assist in other support activities within the community and the
department. ;
Through dedication and determination, this department has
grown in the ability to serve the surrounding community. Each
person who has been involved in this effort has made the Lee
Community Volunteer Fire Department the outstanding organi-
zation it is today.

"Amazing Grace" is the title of a newly released film. It is
the story of British lawmaker William Wilberforce (1759-1833)
and his 20-year battle to rid Britain of the slave trade two cen-
turies ago. The title of the movie comes from the hymn written
by John Newton, a reformed slave ship captain who tutored
young Wilberforce as a schoolboy.
It is a wonderful story of a man tortured by the horrors-of
the slave trade. England, at the end of the American Revolu-
tion, was not touched directly by slavery its economy was not
dependent on slave labor which remained in plantation
economies offshore. However, England's maritime economy
benefited greatly from the triangle of transporting slaves from
Africa's west coast to the plantations of the Americas and goods
to England's ports.
Against these moneyed interests, young Wilberforce took
on the establishment ... frequently alone. It was a tall order for
anyone but especially for someone so young when he began
his crusade, Wilberforce had not yet reached his thirtieth birth-
day. But knowing that he was right ... morally right helped sus-
tain him even as his health failed under the stress.
Wilberforce kept his eye on the'goal and, in early 1807, the
trade of slaves was banned in the British Empire. In tribute to
his long battle and ultimate success, the film "Amazing Grace"
was released on the 200th anniversary of the historic vote in
In his long battle for justice, William Wilberforce occupied
the moral high ground. That is a powerful position that can
even override the advantage of money. Fifty years ago when the
Montgomery Bus Boycott began, the Reverend Martin Luther'
King, Jr. recognized the importance of the moral high ground
and the Civil Rights Movement was born. Throughout the civ-
il rights struggle, the roles of religion and faith were vital rally-
ing points.
Today, is there an issue where the moral high ground theo-
ry can be applied? Some would offer global warming as the
equivalent today, but I believe it falls short. For one thing, there
is serious disagreement over the cause of the 0.7 degree rise in
the earth's temperature over the past century, to say nothing of
Just how serious this rise is or isi not. 'And second, there is no
component of religious faith among the crusaders; in fact glob-
al warming and environmentalism is based on faith let's call
it the new religion.
Could there be something else where the moral high ground
is in play ... say abortion, for instance? The Pro-Life or Sanc-
tity of Life position is anchored in Christian doctrine. They ar-
gue that life is a gift from God that no man can rightly deny. It
reminds me of a line from Amazing Grace where Wilberforce
argues, "How can man belong to God and another man at the
same time?" Good question.
There is an important distinction though. To counteract
slavery, Wilberforce needed only a majority of votes in Parlia-
ment to succeed. Since the right to an abortion rests on a 34
year-old Supreme Court decision, the ability of a representative
government to reflect the will of the people has been short-cir-
cuited. Instead, the efforts of the right-to-lifers are centered at
thousands of crisis pregnancy centers around the country ... and
right here in Madison attempting to rescue one tiny soul at a
time. It is a worthy goal.
The role of William Wilberforce is played in the movie by
loan Gruffudd, best known for his title role in the Horatio Horn-
blower series while the role of John Newton features the noted
British actor Albert Finney. I recommend that you go to the the-
ater to see Amazing Grace. I believe you will be entertained, in-
formed, and most importantly, inspired by the film. God bless.

This report represents some significant events the FWC
handled over the past week; however, it does not include all ac-
tions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement.
March 4, Officer Jason McMillan was on foot patrol in Twin
Rivers State Forest when he saw a vehicle stop in front of his lo-
cation. The driver the used pn wy;hott call, ,n,. attpem tto
locate a turkey. The vehicle then continued on into adjacent pri-
vate property. "After entering the private property, McMillan
watched what appeared to be a man and his son step out of the
vehicle, dressed in camouflage, carrying shotguns. After exiting
the vehicle, the two subjects again used an owl hoot call. This
time a gobbler responded. Both subjects then started walking in
the direction of the gobbler with McMillan following behind.
The subjects stopped at the edge of a food plot and started
using a turkey call. Multiple turkeys responded to the call and
approach the food plot. After a short period of time, one of the
hunters shot at and missed a turkey. McMillan approached the
subjects and cited the father for attempting to take turkey out of
season and attempting to take turkey over bait. The father ad-
mitted to knowing the season was closed and hunting over bait.
McCollum Commends
Governor Crist For Signing
Anti-Murder Act Into Law
Attorney General Bill McCollum released the following
statement, praising Governor Charlie Crist for his hard work and
support of the Anti-murder Act:
"I commend Governor Crist for his,unwavering support of
this important legislation. I know this bill was one of his highest
priorities while he served as our Attorney General and that he
has diligently continued the fight since becoming Governor. I
am pleased that the Legislature took action so early in the leg-
islative session and unanimously passed this critical piece of
public safety legislation.
"It is paramount that we continue to place a high priority on
the safety of both our citizens and our guests. The Anti-Murder
Act is an excellent step towards protecting Floridians and our
Governor deserves oiir gratitude for signing this bill into law."

thank everyone for their

love and support we received
since Rhonda was called home
to be with Jesus on Friday,
February 23, 2007.
Friends came from all
over to minister to us and offer
encouraging words. Without Rhonda Carroll Rudloff
the support of our friends and
family, and most importantly the grace of the Lord. we could not
have made it to this point. We will all miss Rhonda's warm smile
and tender heart.
She was the best daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmoth-
er and friend you could ask for. The tremendous outpouring of
compassion and great concern shown by everyone to our family
was humbling. It is comforting for us to know how much Rhon-
da's friends cared about her and cares for our family.
We want to especially thank the Tri-County employees who
assisted at the scene, all those who took part in Rhonda's service
and those who spent their time serving food and ministering to
our family. Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and
prayers, as only the Lord can give us the strength to: carry on.
Thank you all again for caring about Rhonda and our family.

Use "Ladder" To Climb Above
Interest Rate Worries
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Interest rates are constantly changing. But how do
rising or falling interest rates affect your investment
There's no simple answer, of course. If you own
stocks, higher interest rates could be a cause for con-
cern, because when interest rates rise, it becomes more
expensive for companies. to borrow to. expand their
operations. As a result, these businesses, may feel a
squeeze on their profitability and their stock prices.
And yet, some businesses are much more affected by
rising interest rates than others, so, as an investor, you
can't really base your actions on a blanket statement
such as: "Higher interest rates are bad for all stocks."
The situation is a little different if you own fixed-
income vehicles, such as bonds. When interest rates
rise, the value of your bonds will fall. That's because no
one will pay you the full price for your bonds
when he or she can buy new ones issued with a higher
interest rate. To sell yours, you'd have to offer them at a
"discount" to their face value. On the other hand, if
interest rates fall, the value of your existing bonds will
rise, so if you were to sell them, you could get a premi-
um price.
Of course, if you're like many people, you don't buy
bonds just to sell them. You want to hold them until
maturity, when you can expect to get your principal
back, assuming it's a quality bond and the issuer doesn't
default. And, along the way, you've gotten regular inter-
est payments, which you can use to supplement your
cash flow or to reinvest.
However, even if you do plan on holding bonds or
certificates of deposit (CDs) until maturity, you might
want to pay some attention to what's happening with
interest rates. After all, if you depend on bonds or CDs
for some of your income, and rates are down when
these investments mature, .you could face a difficult
choice: Should you purchase new fixed-income vehi-
cles at current rates, or should you "park" your money
somewhere and hope for rates to rise again soon?
Fortunately, you can find a better solution than
either of these options. How? By building a "ladder" of
fixed-income investments. To build a ladder, you pur-
chase a variety of fixed-income vehicles [any combina-
tion of corporate bonds, U.S. government-sponsored
enterprise (GSE) and/or Treasury securities, municipal
bonds or certificates of deposit] with a wide range of
maturities short-, intermediate- and long-term.
Once you have established a bond ladder, you are
prepared for both rising and falling interest rates. When
rates are rising, the proceeds from your maturing bonds
can be'used to invest in new ones at higher levels. When
market rates are falling, you'll continue to benefit from
the higher rates offered by your longer-term bonds.
In addition to helping you productively reinvest
your maturing bond proceeds in all interest rate envi-
ronments, a well-structured bond ladder may, over time,
help you increase the income you earn on your fixed-
income portfolio. And, at the very least, by regularly
reinvesting part of your portfolio in all market condi-
tions, you may be able to smooth out your returns.
See your financial advisor for help in putting
together a fixed-income ladder that can help you meet
your needs.

S"In late November 1942,
my dad was riding the train
from Jacksonville, where he
was stationed at Jax NAS, to
Pensacola Naval Air Station.
As he passed through Madison
that morning, my father had
no inkling that he would meet
his future bride less than two
hours later," said Hughes.
"My mother boarded the pas-
senger train in Tallahassee, en
route to her home in Jackson
County, Florida, from college.
It was love at first sight.
"Only 17 years after that
train ride through Madison
County and across North
Florida, my parents set up

housekeeping in Madison,"
said Hughes.
In his book, Fred Hughes
tells the story of an indepen-
dent scientist and researcher,
Robert Dowling, a native of
Columbia, South Carolina and
a man with a strong Irish an-
cestry, "who has made some
of the most remarkable dis-
coveries in history," without
ever receiving a dime from big
business, cancer charities, or
the federal government.
The author's mother, who
grew up in the northwest
Florida panhandle' T[wi of
Graceville, was a home-ecp-
nomics major at Florida State
College for Women in Talla-
hassee (before it became
Florida State University).
"Although my mother un-
derstood the importance of nu-
trition in the scheme of our
overall health, this angelic
woman passed away without
ever knowing about the new
discoveries that connect oral
pathology to cancer and de-
generative diseases," said
Hughes added, "She did
not know that a person can
have a serious bacterial infec-
tion lurking beneath an other-
wise perfect looking set of
teeth. She went to the dentist
frequently, and her dentist did-
n't know it either."
According to Hughes,
some scientists for decades
have known about a connec-
tion between the mouth and
cancer and other diseases,
"but none of them could prove
it until Bob Dowling made his
"It's not the bacteria but
rather the deadly waste by-
products produced by the bac-
teria neurotoxins that
are the trigger for breast can-
cer and many degenerative
diseases," Hughes explained.
"The neurotoxins never cross
the body's mid-line. For ex-
ample, if a woman has cancer
in her right breast, she has oral
pathology on the right side of
her mouth. Thousands of cas-

es, no exceptions."
"It sounds'like nonsense,
but cardiovascular disease is
triggered by left-side oral
pathology," .said Hughes.
"That's what happened to me,
although heart doctors blamed
it on high cholesterol and my"
genes. The real culprit was an
infection in my jawbone on
the left side of my mouth that

Lynn S. Lee, MID
Internal Aledicine

"As a physician, I enjoy
interacting with my patients.
When there is a positive
outcome, it makes me feel

I chose to practice at South
Georgia medicall Center
because of it's many resources
and it's important that my
patients have access to top
specialists. If that kind of
support is needed, it's here.

South Georgia Medical
Center is a wonderful place
to practice medicine. It's

(NAPSI)-Kidney failure is
the most common reason for a
kidney transplant. Blacks are
at a greater risk for end-stage
kidney disease because of
higher-than-average rates of
diabetes, high blood pressure
and other immunologic fac-
tors. Even though higher num-
bers of black patients may be
candidates for a kidney trans-
plant, they typically wait
longer for a compatible kidney
donor. Why are blacks, who
are more likely to need a kid-
ney transplant, having a harder
time finding a suitable kidney?
Overall, there are less suitable
organs available, and blacks
are more likely to fall into a
higher-risk category.
There is something that
you can do about it. Learn
more about organ donation and
talk to your doctor about kid-
ney health.
Organ Donation
According to. the Organ
Procurement and Transplanta-

tion Network (OPTN), there
are more than 73,000 patients
awaiting kidneys on the U.S.
transplant waiting list, with
over 25,000 representing the
black community.
SOrgan donation can come
in two forms, either from liv-
ing or non-living donors.
Healthy people with two func-
tioning kidneys can donate to a
person in need and still enjoy a
normal lifestyle. Transplants
from living donors have con-
siderable advantages over
transplants from non-living
donors. A kidney from a living
donor will usually function im-
mediately and may last longer.
By comparison, some non-liv-
ing donor kidneys do not func-
tion right away, and the patient
may need dialysis until the
kidney starts to function.
If you receive a kidney
transplant, your body knows
that the new kidney is not an
original part of your body.

Your body will attack the new
kidney and try to damage or
destroy it. Almost everyone
who has a transplant must
take drugs called immuno-
suppressants every day to
stop this from happening. Im-
munosuppressant drugs lower
your body's ability to attack
or "reject" your newly trans-
planted kidney. Regular
checkups at your transplant
center will help to spot any
problems and start treatment
before a problem gets worse.
The good news is that treat-
ments have come a long way.
For more information on
organ transplant and kidney
donation, visit the National
Kidney Foundation (NKF)
Web site at
The most important thing is
to talk to your doctor about
ways you can take care of
yourself. Don't be afraid to
discuss kidney health and or-
gan donation with your doc-

New Research On Preventing Vision Loss

(NAPSI)-Scientists look-
ing for a way to improve eye
health have made some inter-
esting discoveries. Research
has shown that vitamins and
minerals (vitamins C and E,
beta-carotene, zinc and cop-
per) can reduce the risk of age-


choice for medical carC.

related macular degeneration
(AMD) by 25 percent and of
moderate vision loss by 19
I The Age-Related Eye-Dis- Fi
ease Study 2 (AREDS2) study
will add lutein, zeaxanthin and
the omega-3 fatty acids DHA
and EPA to determine if these
nutrients decrease a person's
risk of progression to AMD,
which often leads to vision
loss. Previous studies have
suggested these nutrients may
protect vision.
"Vision loss from AMD is
an important public health is-
sue. This study may help us
find a better way to treat this
devastating disease," said Elias
A. Zerhouni, M.D., director of
the National Institutes of
Health (NIH).
AMD damages the macu-
la. As the disease progresses, it
blurs the patient's central vi-
sion. AMD can take two
forms, wet and dry. Wet AMD
is caused by the abnormal
growth of blood vessels under
the macula. This leads to rapid
loss of central vision. Wet
AMD is considered to be more
severe than the dry form. Dry
AMD, the more common
form, occurs when the light-
sensitive cells in the macula
slowly break down. Untreated
dry AMD can progress into
wet AMD.
Paul A. Sieving, M.D.,
Ph.D., director of the National

Eye Institute (NED at NIH,
said, "Nearly two million
Americans have vision loss
from advanced AMD, and an-
other seven million withAMD
are at substantial risk for vi-
sion loss. In the study, we
found a combination of vita-
mins and minerals that effec-
tively slowed the progression
of AMD for some people.
Now, we will conduct this
more precisely targeted study
to see if the new combination
of nutrients can reduce AMD
progression even further."
Emily Y. Chew, M.D.,
study chair and deputy direc-
tor of the Division of Epi-
demiology and Clinical Re-
search at the NEI, said, "The
AREDS2 study is seeking
4,000 people between 50 and
85 years of age with AMD in
both eyes or advanced AMD
in one eye. They must be
available for yearly eye exam-
inations for at least five years.
Until we get the results from
AREDS2, we encourage peo-
ple with AMD to visit their
eye care professional to see if
they need to take the AREDS
vitamin and mineral formula-
tion. This alone could save
more than 300,000 people
from vision loss over the next
five years."

The North Florida Com-
munity College RN Class of
2007 would like to invite
Madison and surrounding
counties to participate in the
first ever Great Strides Walk
to be held at Lake Francis on
April 21st. They are excited
and proud that Madison
County will be an official
walk site for the Cystic Fibro-
sis Foundation. Not only will.
they be raising funds for re-
search but they will also be

educating the public about
this disease and the lifestyle
those affected with Cystic Fi-
brosis maintain.
Cystic Fibrosis is a life-
threatening disease that caus-
es mucus to build up and clog
some of the organs in the
body, particularly in the lungs
and in the pancreas. When
mucus clogs the lungs, it can
make breathing very difficult.
The thick mucus also causes
bacteria to get stuck in the air-

ways, this causes inflamma-
tion and infections that lead to
lung damage. Mucus can also
block the digestive tract and
pancreas. The mucus stops di-
gestive enzymes from getting
to the intestines. The body
needs these enzymes to help
break down our food and
maintain our health. People
with cystic fibrosis often need
to replace these enzymes with
capsules they take with their
Seals and snacks to help di-

have tumor suppressant genes," Hughes ex-
plained. Neurotoxic waste by-products from
hidden bacteria in the mouth inhibit these tu-
mor suppressant genes. In other words, the tox-
ins keep the genes from doing their job. That's
the trigger for cancer. That's the genetic con-
nection to cancer."
Of course, cancer can be triggered by ex-
cessive exposure to radiation and certain chem-
icals. He noted, "'.!y dad made several flights
over Japan days after the atomic bombs were
dropped. Later, he had a skin cancer removed
from his nose."
Hughes, who devoted most of 2006 to writ-
ing the book, says new technologies mean that
most cancers are curable, and most degenera-
tive diseases are reversible. "Yes, there's in-
tense opposition to these discoveries. Some-
body is making tons of money off of sickness,"
he said.
In the book, Hughes is critical of main-
stream media, pharmaceutical companies, den-
tal and medical associations and the federal
government including the FDA, and even can-
cer foundations and charities.
"They don't want a cure for cancer," said
Hughes. "There's no profit when people are not
sick." The book also chronicles Bob Dowling's
discoveries that lead to wellness not getting
"If you read the book, you'll be angry at
the attempts being made to keep the American
people from learning about these discoveries,"
said Hughes. Some medical doctors and den-
tists are quick to malign Bob Dowlng and his
research, Hughes added, "but they refuse to
take his challenge find a woman with breast
cancer who does not have oral pathology."
"I didn't do anything special to deserve this
opportunity reporting on Dowling's cutting-
edge research," Hughes stated. "Until now, I
never had an interest in the field of medicine. I
am the most unlikely person in America to be
writing a book about medical discoveries."
"Like Tommy Greene and his new book,
Florida Cookin' Wild Style,-being a newspaper
publisher. for much of one's adult life frequent-
ly generates the material for at least one book,"
said Hughes. "The trick is making the time to
sit down and write it.
"In fact, I've been taking notes on an unre-
lated subject that has stirred my mind and chal-
lenged my resourcefulness for 25 years. Every-
one is familiar with the plastic pails that end up
in America's landfills by the hundreds of thou-
sands," said the author. "The book of my
dreams is titled, 1001 Uses for a Five Gallon
Bucket. How far removed is that from medi-
Hughes was the news director at Live
Oak's AM 1250 radio station in the late 1960s.
In the 1970s, he was the publisher and execu-
tive editor of Suwannee County's Independent
Post, a weekly newspaper. The POST, which
Hughes sold in 1980, was eventually combined
with the Suwannee Democrat and ceased to op-
erate as a separate publication.
Hughes is a lifetime woodworker and
skilled cabinet and furniture builder. He is one
of the few people in America who restore old

trunks. "In the early '80s, my wife begged me
to repair a dilapidated, 100-year-old camelback
trunk. I so thoroughly enjoyed the project that I
continued this endeavor. At last count I have re-
stored over 300 trunks, all shapes and sizes," he
During the 1980s, Hughes owned Hughes
Craft, Inc., in Live Oak, which built several
hundred hand-crafted wood boats using white
oak and mahogany as basic materials. In the
1980s and '90s, he also traveled frequently, in
his capacity as an operations and management
consultant to the small-market newspaper in-
"In the case of reporting on a cure for
breast cancer, God had me in the right place at
the right time," Hughes believes.
He lives in the mountains of western North
Carolina. For seven years, he published the
fastest growing paid community newspaper in
America, a newspaper he founded in 1999.
Until his North Carolina newspaper was
acquired by Gannett, the giant media company
that owns USA Today and the Tallahassee De-
mocrat, Hughes owned the only newspaper in
the world whose offices and production facili-
ties were located in railroad boxcars.
Hughes is a toy train buff and model rail-
road enthusiast. His love of trains comes hon-
estly. His grandfather was a station agent for
the L&N Railroad for nearly a half-century. He
has a son, Al, who works at the state correc-
tional facility in Madison County but lives in
Suwannee County. Al and his wife, Lindsey,
who is a Hamilton County native, are expecting
a boy in June and the baby's room will be dec-
orated with trains.
Hughes is an active member of The
Gideons International, an organization of busi-
ness and professional men he joined in Live
Oak in 1984. Gideons are best known for plac-
ing Bibles in hotels and motels. He's also chair-
man of the board of Harvesters International, a
Christian missionary outreach to three coun-
tries in Africa Kenya, Sudan, and Uganda-
as well as India.
His wife is the former Glenda Sue Mc-
Cullers, daughter of the late A.G. and Mildred
McCullers, of Live Oak.
The rest of the children Lee, Greg, Tim
and Jeremiah Hughes and Sally DeJesus ac-
count for 10 grandchildren. Jeremiah is the for-
mer advertising director of his father's newspa-
per. Fred, Glenda and Jeremiah spent three
months tent-camping in the bush of western
Kenya in 1997 while building a mission station
among the Pokot, a tribe of some one million
nomadic herdsmen.
The author has two sisters who attended
Madison schools: Patty Bagdan lives in Miami,
and Beverly Crummey lives in Melbourne
Beach, FL.
The 350-page book incorporates 24 pages
of full-color photographs and digital thermal
images that graphically tell the story of hidden
oral pathology. Although the book's primary
distribution will be via the Internet (www.can-, it's available in Live Oak for
$24.95 from the printer, North Florida Printing
Company, Inc.

Approximately 30,000
people in the US have cystic
fibrosis. An additional
10,000,000 more, or one in
every 31 Americans are carri-
ers of the defective CF gene,
but do not have the disease.
Currently, there is no cure for
people with cystic fibrosis.
However, specialized
medical care, aggressive drug
treatments,. and therapies,
along with proper CF nutri-
tion, can lengthen and im-
prove the quality of life for
those with CF, and, while no
one can predict how long peo-
ple with CF will live, thanks
to research and improvement
in treatments, the predicted
mean age of survival rose to
36.5 in 2005, up from 32 in
2000. In 1955, children with
CF were not expected to live
to the first grade.
Today, thanks to founda-
