Pilgrim's Pride Buyout Nearing Completion

Not a done deal, but very close reports say

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
According to recent reports
from The Wall Street Journal,
Pilgrim's Pride is nearing its
exit from bankruptcy pro-
tection and will be pur-
chased for approximately
$2.5 billion by Brazilian
meat giant, JBS. The deal
would create a combined
operation generating ap-
proximately $20 billion
annually, making it
close to industry
leader Tyson, which gen-
erates $27 billion.
The report, au-
thored by Jeffrey McCracken
and Lauren McCraken, goes
on to say:


"A JBS-Pilgrim deal would probably at-
tract scrutiny from U.S. antitrust en-
forcers, who have said they plan to
take a hard look at competition
in the agriculture business.
SAny deal is sure to raise con-
cerns across U.S. farm
country. Some ranchers
S and chicken farmers are
f worried that greater con-
centration in the industry
could decrease their pow-
er in the market and
I translate into lower
prices for their ani-
mals in the long run. Rep-
resentatives for JBS and
SPilgrim have declined to
S comment.

name in the U.S., is one of the world's

Taxpayers Should Be Presented Most Current
Financial Projections For Hospital

Dear Editor:
In response to the letter written by Mr. Pouliotte
addressing concerns over the proposed hospital, it
looks as if he has some valid points. Since moving
back home to Madison six years ago I have not kept
up with the details involving the proposed new hos-
pital; however, I will say that any experience my fam-
ily or myself have had with the current hospital has
always been very favorable.
Basically, Mr. Pouliotte indicated that the facility
proposed would not be affordable and essentially
would not "cash flow" and he offered some details to
back up his assumptions. As a local CPA and a for-
mer banker and CFO with several privately held
companies in this area, I believe the taxpayers subsi-
dizing this proposed project would be more comfort-
able standing behind this new facility if they were
presented the most current financial projections

Serten-/er 29

along with the hypothetical assumptions used by
the administration and the board as their decision
tool in deciding to continue the process of building
a new facility Also, any update on discussions with
outside healthcare groups (i.e. Shands, Archbold)
that may be considered for some type of joint ven-
ture and the pros and cons of such a venture.

When lawmakers go
into session, the work-
ing people of America,
who diligently pay taxes
every day, hold their col-
lective breath. The
question that is on our
mind is: What kind of
mischief are our repre-
sentatives up to and
what will it cost us?
When lawmakers
tweak an existing law
with subtle changes, it
can be expensive for the
taxpayer. When they de-
cide to "reform" some-
thing, like healthcare or
energy policy, the im-
pact promises to be
huge. This is not "busi-
ness as usual."
A president might
get one opportunity to
introduce a major re-
form in a two-term,
eight year stretch in the
White House. George W
Bush attempted to do
this with Social Security
at the start of his second
term in 2005 and fell flat
on his face. The most ef-
fective reformer since
Franklin Roosevelt dur-
ing the Great Depres-
sion was Lyndon
Johnson in 1965 with his
Great Society agenda.
Ronald Reagan was
reformative during the
early 1980s with his sup-
ply-side tax policy but it
is generally easier to
lower taxes than create a
new government pro-
gram like Barack Oba-
ma is attempting.
Here is something
important to remember
about reform legisla-
tion: it has to be sold to
the American people
and their representa-
tives. Also, it needs to be
bi-partisan. Here, Oba-
ma and the Democrats
are failing miserably.
They own a huge
majority in the House of
Representatives (78
seats) and a filibuster-
proof majority of 60
votes in the Senate. Oba-
ma and his savvy chief
of staff Rahm Emanuel
feel they can use their
majorities in both hous-
es of Congress to pass
sweeping legislation
along a party-line vote.
That is possible with
normal legislation but a
huge mistake for sweep-
ing reform legislation.
Let's look at a couple

of recent examples. In
June, the House passed
HR 2454, the Waxman-
Markey Cap and Trade
Bill. The vote was 219-
212, a bare majority
Every Republican
voted against the bill,
and they were joined by
more than thirty Democ-
rats. If anything in this
vote was bi-partisan, it
was the opposition. Cap
and Trade would hugely
reform our energy mar-
Energy consumers,
particularly those who
buy electrical power,
would see their monthly
energy bills climb as
coal plants are taxed to
pay for expensive and in-
efficient alternative en-
ergy sources. How high
and how quickly the
rates would climb is in
dispute, but the effective
would be massive.
The American peo-
ple who would bear the
brunt of this cost have
not been sold on Cap and
Trade or its objective, to
combat so-called global
warming. Yet still, the
Liberals in the House
forced this thing
through and the vaunted
Blue Dog Democrats, in-
cluding Allen Boyd, did
nothing to stop them. In
fact, Boyd voted in favor
of Cap and Trade and
claims that the rural
electrical lobby group
approved his vote. His
claim is disputed by lo-
cal electrical coopera-
tive officials.
The next Obama
blockbuster is health-
care reform. The objec-
tive is universal
healthcare, covering an
additional 30-47 million
with government-pro-
vided insurance. The
president promises that
healthcare costs will de-
crease and reforms will
be paid for by savings
and new taxes. He
swears that the rising
budget deficit will not
grow one penny with

this entitlement.
But the Congres-
sional Budget Office
says that the president
has understated the
costs and that the deficit
will grow by a quarter of
a trillion dollars. Mean-
while, the American
people are asking this
very germane question:
How can you cover more
people at less cost? Intu-
itively, it doesn't make
sense. Those of us who
oppose "Obamacare"
say that this reform will
cost a lot more; lead to
rationing; and force as
many as 80 million peo-
ple who currently have
private health insur-
ance into the public op-
tion very similar to
Medicaid. We also say
that there will be fewer
healthcare providers,
leading to more ra-
tioning. Follow this line
of reasoning: more peo-
ple getting health care
plus fewer doctors
equals rationing.
Will our young pres-
ident be content to push
a liberal, partisan re-
form through Congress
that affects one-sixth of
our economy? Can he
pass it in both houses?
Or, will he bring in both
sides and strike a bi-par-
tisan agreement that
majorities on both sides
of the political spec-
trum can support?
These are major ques-
tions for a very impor-
tant piece of legislation.
Recall the Social Se-
curity debate four years
ago. I did my part to sell
that reform. A wizened
old Democrat friend
told me that the only
way to sell Social Secu-
rity reform was in a bi-
partisan manner
similar to what hap-
pened in 1986. I think he
was right then and he's
still right. Will the pres-
ident and the leaders of
Congress see the wis-
dom of this approach?
We'll see.

"And the winner is...Bonnie Webb," Mary Ann
Sanders happily announced to her fellow members of the
Madison Kiwanis Club.
Webb was the lucky winner of a classic wooden
swing and bench the club raffled to raise funds for fur-
nishings to go into the newly constructed Lee Library.
Club member Brenda Newman sold her friend and health
department colleague Webb the ticket and couldn't have
been more pleased at her selection.
No stranger to fundraising, this raffle is just one
among numerous financial commitments the club makes
annually which includes educational scholarships and a
host of other philanthropic efforts.
President David Driggers was saddened to report
that Joyce Bethea, who would have hosted the luncheon's
program, was still ill. The membership shared his con-
In the absence of a program, the club opted to ad-
dress business regarding the installation of new officers
that is slated for September 24 at The Wild Plum. The
group did, however, reiterate its dedication to several pro-
posed and upcoming projects. Among them, the annual
citrus sale and a Boys" and Girls Club were mentioned.
Elder Statesman George Willis provided a few words
of inspiration to the group, accompanied by Jim Holben,
who has been instrumental in recent fundraisers, includ-

Invest in Your Grandchildren's
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
This time of year marks National Grandparent's Day.
While not as well known as Mother's Day or Father's
Day, Grandparents Day is, nonetheless a reminder to
us of the importance of grandparents in the lives of
their grandchildren. If you're a grandparent yourself,
you might want to use this day as a starting point to
consider how you can best help your own grandchil-
dren on their journey through life.
Of course, one of the most generous things you can
do is to help your grandchildren pay for college. A per-
son with a bachelor's degree will earn, on average,
almost twice as much over a lifetime as workers with a
high school diploma, according to the U.S. Census
Bureau. And over the past several years, college costs
have risen significantly.
To help meet these costs, you might want to consider
opening a Section 529 savings plan.Your contributions
may be deductible on your state taxes, and all earn-
ings and withdrawals are tax-free, as long as the
money is used for qualified higher education expens-
es. Withdrawals for other types of expenses may be
subject to federal and state taxes plus a 10 percent
penalty. And since you can open a Section 529 plan in
your name, you'll maintain control over the funds, so if
the grandchild who is the plan's beneficiary decides
against going to college, you can switch the benefici-
ary designation to another grandchild.
While saving for college may be more of a near-term
goal for your grandchildren, they'll also have other
objectives, such as saving for retirement and you
can help them out in that area, too. For instance, you
may want to help them fund a Roth IRA. Since your
grandchildren are young, they have many decades
ahead of them to take advantage of this retirement
vehicle, which offers tax-free earnings, provided your
grandchildren don't make withdrawals until they're 59-
To qualify for a Roth IRA, your grandchildren just need
to be old enough to earn some money. They would
have to establish the Roth IRA in their names, but you
could contribute to it. The contribution limit is the less-
er of $5,000 per year or the amount of annual earned
Helping your grandchildren pay for college or save for
retirement will bring you great satisfaction during your
lifetime. But once you're gone, you can still provide
valuable financial resources that may help your grand-
children achieve other goals, such as furthering their
education or making a down payment on a home.
Specifically, you might want to pass on some of your
assets to your grandchildren through a living trust,
which can avoid probate and gives you great control
over how and when you want your wealth distrib-
uted. And if you name your grandchildren beneficiaries
of a life insurance policy owned by a trust, the pro-
ceeds will not typically be subject to estate or income
taxes. (Keep in mind, though, that you will need to con-
sult with a qualified legal advisor before establishing a
living trust, which can be a complex arrangement.
Edward Jones does not provide tax or legal advice.)
You may have received a card or a gift from your
grandchildren on Grandparents Day. But you'll get
even more satisfaction by helping them invest for their
future goals.

Cowboys Take The Bite Out Of The Bulldogs

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
In a lopsided battle at Boot Hill, the Madison County
Cowboys put the leash on the Suwannee County Bulldogs,
outscoring them 34-3 for their second victory in as many
games. In fact, the most offensive part of the opponent's
game was the profane language being used by their coach,
which could be heard by players and fans alike. So much
for role models and considering the score, perhaps he
should rethink his "offensive" strategy
The game started slow, with no scoring until the Cow-
boy running sensation, Mar'terrius McDaniel, continued
his touchdown tally by putting up six points late in the
first quarter. The Cowboys' two-point effort missed pay
dirt, however, although seven minutes later the maroon
and silver had expanded their lead to 20-0; first on the arm
of Kelvin "Taye" Singletary who passed for a touchdown
to Xavier Brown. A second-effort rushing score followed
this from fullback Dantonio Denson. .- flL1 fl.. m.L ... o- h.1 44nna

The scoreboard illuminates the Cowboys' dominance, defeating the Bull-
dogs of Suwannee County 34-3 at Boot Hill.
Suwannee County did show a little life at the end of the half, converting a field goal
following an interception with only 15 seconds on the clock.
Although he didn't put points up in the half, Justin Hampton, who certainly lived
up to the #1 jersey he wore, handed out a noteworthy performance, dealing big plays on
both sides of the line all night. Strong team play was still the recipe for success though,
with the play calling of Offensive Coordinator Mike Coe held up by the Iron Curtain of
Rod Williams defense.
Fans were treated to a melodic halftime show, as both bands demonstrated their
musical talent. The Vaquero Guard Band brought extra kudos and pride to Director Ge-
off Hill, skillfully closing the show with a rousing rendition of the classic Styx tune,
"Come Sail Away" which was led by Drum Major Kristi Ferrell.
The second half opened much as the first half closed, with the Cowboy offense
maintaining its momentum, as the Bulldogs' Coach maintained his verbal onslaught.
Unfortunately little else connected for Suwannee County where as Madison County
added two more scores in the third. Xavier Brown scampered untouched for a ground
score, quickly complemented by a Singletary pass to McDaniel, who showed his offen-
sive versatility as a receiver.
Carrying a 34-3 lead into the fourth, Head Coach Frankie Carroll and his stellar

Cowboys are going to be in good hands as the young player matures, although the quar-
ter yielded no points for either team.
The Cowboys have an open date September 18, followed by three away games that
will test the team's place in their new 2A division, looking toward division rival Godby
at the conclusion of the three-game run. The winning tradition of Madison County has
been well demonstrated in its season openers. The only and tragic loss this season, has
been the loss of the prayer that kicked off the game for decades. GO, COWBOYS!

court, where shareholders are typically wiped out. That
could salvage some of the fortune of the company's for-
mer chief executive, Lonnie "Bo" Pilgrim, who helped
found the Pittsburg, Texas-based company with his broth-
er out of a ramshackle animal feed shop in the 1940s.
"Under the current proposal, JBS willmake a "stalk-

competing offers, the people familiar with the matter
"In all, the offer could top $2.5 billion, according to a
person familiar with the matter. It would pay off $1.2 bil-
lion in secured debt; about $1 billion in unsecured debt,
accrued interest for the debt holders, and leave a "couple
hundred million" for shareholders. Pilgrim's stock closed
recently at about $5 per share, giving the company a mar-
ket value of $360 million.
"Investors that specialize in the securities of trou-

grim's Pride. A drop in corn prices, a major cost in the
feeding of chickens, has helped the company The compa-
ny turned a small profit in the third quarter of 2009 after
a small loss in the same period of 2008."
Locally, Madison County chicken producers and
hundreds of Pilgrim's Pride employees in Live Oak are
anxiously awaiting the outcome. As one of the area's
largest employers, the cutbacks at the company has pro-
duced devastating affects on dozens of family farms, as
well as factory workers.

Nurse-Engineer Leads Effort To Radically

Change Personal Health Records

How do you manage
your personal health in-
formation: from a shoe-
box? An expandable
folder? Your doctor's
new Web-based soft-
One of the nation's
few nurse-industrial en-
gineers thinks both indi-
viduals and health
systems can manage
care better if they had
better technology. And
she's leading an eight-
year-long national effort
to come up with a vision
for personal health
records that will go far
beyond the current crop
of ideas for helping peo-
ple make decisions
about their own health.
"We have to think
bigger, and figure out
how to take full advan-
tage of the amazing new
opportunities technolo-
gy is providing," says Dr.
Patricia Flatley Bren-
nan, who holds profes-
sorships in both the
UW-Madison School of
Nursing and College of
Engineering. "A truly ef-
fective system of manag-
ing health information
would not just make it
easy to collect and store
information like blood-
pressure readings, med-
ication lists or doctors'
instructions. It would be
a very powerful tool to
help people accomplish
goals and manage chron-
ic health problems."
Brennan is the na-
tional program director
of Project HealthDesign,
a program which aims to
create a new generation
of personal health
records. Originally fund-
ed by the Robert Wood
Johnson Foundation in
2006, Project HealthDe-
sign recently received an
additional $5.3 million
in funding to continue to
explore Brennan's vi-
sion. The award will al-
low the project to
continue into 2012.
Brennan acknowl-
edges that several
health-information ven-
dors are moving forward
on various versions of
electronic personal
health records. But her
vision, which derives

from her role as a nurse
and teacher of nurses, is
both broader and more
centered around the pa-
"Project HealthDe-
sign speaks to what is
unique about nursing re-
search, which strives to
help people find ways to
understand and manage
their own health," she
says. "The tools that ven-
dors have available now
are mostly linked to a
health care organiza-
tion's medical record, or
are disease-specif-
ic. What we seek to do is
come up with tools and
applications that can ac-
cess all sorts of health
information that work
together to help people
reach their health goals
in a secure, integrated
Imagine having a
tool that keeps track of
your accumulated
health history-aller-
gies, vaccinations, lab
results, etc., that is col-
lected during a typical
clinical encounter-plus
clinical information pas-
sively gathered from
you-your blood pres-
sure or glucose level, for
example. Add to that
what Project HealthDe-
sign has identified as
"observations of daily
living" things that you
record yourself and
have unique meaning
for you: moods, pain or
discomfort, events dur-
ing the day.
Then imagine that
the tool is able to inte-
grate all your clinical
and observational infor-
mation, interpret the re-
sults and provide useful
feedback on which you
can act.
Consider a diabetic,
who tries to carefully
manage her food intake,
exercise, medication and
all of their effects on her
blood sugar, sleep habits
and mood. A really use-
ful personal health-in-
formation system would
allow her to track all of
those factors, give regu-
lar reports back to her
with suggestions or
warnings, and also alert
a nurse or physician if

her blood sugar was in a
dangerous range.
"We all develop
strategies for managing
the different kinds of
health information,"
says Brennan. "Project
HealthDesign is aimed
at coming up with en-
tirely new approaches
using readily available
technology and centered
around the patient."
During the first
round of the project, re-
searchers developed pro-
totype tools that did
much of the above. In its
second round, re-
searchers will focus on
how the integrated in-
formation can be used in
a clinical setting.
"By integrating
what happens during a
care visit with observa-
tions of daily living,
caregivers and patients
will have a more com-
plete picture of how the
patient manages his dis-
ease," says Bren-
nan. "We've already
made a lot of progress in
identifying barriers and
finding ways to keep the
information secure
while still giving access
to those who need
it. Making this happen
requires a lot of creative
thinking by teams of
folks with very different
skills. By bringing to-
gether technology and
health care profession-
als with patient-centered
design experts, we are
on the way."
Dr. Brennan was re-

cently selected to be one
of five UW-Madison fac-
ulty whose research pro-
posals will establish the
Wisconsin Institute for
Discovery (WID).
Her proposal for the
Health Technology De-
sign in the Living Envi-
ronments Laboratory is
aimed at accelerating
the development of per-
sonal care diagnostic
and therapeutic technol-
ogy to support individu-
als and families in the
detection, recognition
and management of
health problems.
"The Living Envi-
ronments Laboratory re-
search will help expand
Project HealthDesign's
vision of engaging peo-
ple in managing their
health," according to Dr.
Brennan, "by developing
new devices and creative
technologies to better
understand health in
everyday living."
One focus will be to
learn how individuals
now access and manage
health information at
home, and then propose
improvements that are
workable in the real
world. A second focus will
be to find improvements
in the many health-care
technologies ranging
from blood-glucose mea-
surement to meters that
gauge respiratory func-
tion that are moving
into the home, where they
must be adapted to differ-
ent circumstances and
different users.

Improved Childhood

Immunization Rates
(NAPS)-Whether it's updating children's immuniza-
tions before school or getting them immunized against
seasonal viruses, it's important for parents and medical
professionals alike to make sure children in their com-
munities are up to date with their immunizations.
The American Academy of Family Physicians Foun-
dation (AAFP Foundation), through the support of a
grant from Wyeth Vaccines, has awarded grants to fam-
ily residency programs that identified and developed so-
lutions to increase childhood immunization rates in
their communities-that may be helpful to families
One of the award winners is the Smoky Hill Family
Medicine Residency Program in Kansas. Director Robert
S. Freelove, MD, and his team won the "Most Improved"
award for improving their immunization system and, in
turn, increasing immunization rates in their communi-
ty. Kansas immunization rates rank below the national
average and within this residency program, less than 85
percent of children were receiving all seven of the vacci-
nations required for children 19 to 35 months old. With
families frequently moving in and out of the community,
the program faced another challenge: adequately track-
ing the immunization status of all children. It was cru-
cial for Dr. Freelove and his team to transform their
current system to increase their vaccination rates and
maintain a healthy patient population.
Enhanced Immunization Screenings
First, the residency program began performing im-
munization screenings at every office visit and devel-
oped an efficient approach to make immunization visits
as short and as positive an experience as possible for the
children and their parents. The team now prepares the
vaccines prior to the child's appointment so they can be
administered quickly with minimal waiting.
Appointed Immunization Nurse
The program also appointed an "immunization
nurse" to lead and maintain the immunization program.
The nurse's role includes identifying children in need of
immunizations, working with parents to develop catch-
up immunization schedules, managing office vaccine in-
ventory and entering immunization information into an
electronic immunization registry.
Used Immunization Registry
Finally, the residency program took advantage of the
Kansas Web IZ immunization registry to accurately
track pediatric patients' immunizations. This practice
allowed the team to get immunization records of pa-
tients moving into the community easily and ensured
that the records of children moving away also were com-
Improving childhood immunization rates is critical to
enhancing the health of all children and families, and
the AAFP Foundation hopes that the positive changes
implemented by the Smoky Hill Family Medicine Resi-
dency Program will inspire other physicians and their
office staffs to improve their immunization systems too.

practices from past winners, visit wyethimmunization.

Medicine Residency Program, received a grant from

(NAPS)-Girls today
are facing increasing
pressure to do it all-
and do it perfectly-
which is stressing them
out and causing their
self-esteem to plummet.
Parents can make a dif-
ference by helping girls
navigate difficult issues
around body image, boys
and the pressure to do

well in school. While the
top wish among girls is
for their parents to com-
municate better with
them, according to Real

but according to the Cen-
ters for Disease Control
and Prevention, many in-
fectious germs may be
lurking around.
"Neglecting to clean
kitchen appliances is not
only unhygienic, it's un-
healthy" says "Healthy
Housekeeper" Laura Del-
lutri, author of "Speed
Cleaning 101" (Meredith
Books, 2005) and "The
Overworked Mom's
Stress Free Homekeep-
ing" (Morris Publishing
Inc, 2008). "A regular
cleaning schedule helps
protect your kitchen
from lurking grunge that
can cause odors and har-
bor disease."
Dellutri's tips for
helping maintain a
healthy kitchen include:
Suspect Kitchen
Sinks: Disinfect the sink
after washing meats,
fruits and vegetables to
help prevent bacteria
from multiplying, and
avoid cross contamina-
tion. All you need is chlo-
rine bleach, water and a
soft cloth. Dilute the
bleach with water and
wipe the sink with cloth
dipped in the solution.
Rinse and wipe dry with
a soft cloth.
Disposers: Without prop-
er cleansing, garbage dis-
posers can create odors

and house organisms
that may cause illness
and disease such as
pneumonia, bronchitis
and intestinal flu. In-
stead of simply masking
odors with fresh lemons,

tors: To effectively clean
your fridge and free it
from odor-causing cul-
prits, completely clear it
out and remove any ex-
pired foods. Use hot
soapy water with a ger-

able refrigerator liners
over shelves can help re-

My gums bleed when I brush my teeth, but
they don't hurt. Don't everybody's gums
bleed? Is that something I need to worry

No everybody's gums don't bleed. If they
bleed, there is a good chance that you have
gum disease. About 30% of the adult
population has gum disease. You are right
though; gum disease does not hurt. Not until
the very end stage when there is a gum
abscess. That is when it is often too late to do
much except extract the tooth.

The two most important things you can do for
gum disease is regular exams and cleaning,
along with daily flossing. I know folks are not
wild about flossing. Many only want to floss
the easy to reach front teeth. There is an old
joke in dentistry when the patient asks the
dentist if they need to floss the back teeth too?
The dentist reply is "you only need to floss the
teeth you want to keep."

Hospital Holds 9-11



Howard Phillips (front) addresses the group gathered in the
MCMH Chapel for a 9-11 Remembrance Service, as Jim Sale, who
provided a warm opening prayer, looks on respectfully.

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On September 11 at 9:11 a.m.,
staff and friends of the Madison
County Memorial Hospital gath-
ered in the hospital chapel to re-
member the fallen and living
heroes of the attacks of Septem-
ber 11, 2001. Some spoke and all
prayed for those near and far, tak-
ing a moment to reflect on that
memorable day but also taking a
moment to praise the character of
America and how she rises
through adversity
Following a moving prayer by
Board Member Jim Sale to open
the service, Board Chairman
Howard Phillips reminded the
room full of supporters, "Vigi-
lance is the price of freedom," and
'Americans must continue to de-
fend itself against those who wish
to destroy the values for which it
Board Member Ben Harris
eloquently added to the patriotic
exchange, referring to the event as

a "wake up call." Remarking how
he and others around the country
recall where they were and what
they were doing at the time of the
attack, and how those memories
affected each one of them; he too
underscored that freedom isn't
Hospital CEO David Aber-
crombie and others joined with
similar sentiments, and Vicki
Howerton read the poem "Ragged
Old Flag," concluding with
Frances Sanders cheerfully urg-
ing everyone, "Hold your head
high and your shoulders back,"
because while we take a moment
to mourn the lost of 9-11, we must
be strong now for each other and
The losses in New York and
Washington, D.C., as well as the
flight that went down in Pennsyl-
vania, must serve as constant re-
minders, so such tragedies don't
occur again.

seeking all qualified service men and
women to open a VFW Post in Madi-

Prospective members may also
be members of American Legion
Posts; it is simply the additional com-
bat designation that is re-
quired to join the VFW Of
course, eligibility is not
limited to veterans from
the classic and conven-
tional wars, also in-
cluding combat zones
such as Somalia, Bo-
livia, as well as
Afghanistan and Iraq.
In fact, Duncan empha-
sized his desire to invite
membership from these
more recent actions too.
"The men and
women serving in Iraq
and other war zones
around the world are in-
vited and urged to join. The
VFW Post will not only pro-
vide them camaraderie and a
chance to speak with others
who have experienced the
unique conditions of com-
bat, but also practical services
like day care referrals and do-
mestic assistance are available,"
Duncan explained.
Among other benefits of estab-
lishing a post, is its success in ad-
dressing Post Traumatic Stress
Disorder (PTSD). Evidence
