Public Meetings: A

Working Man's Fantasy?

I write this note to
encourage my elected
and appointed public of-
ficial colleagues to strive
to have all public meet-
ings held at a time of day
that is more suitable for
our citizens. Two re-
cently held meetings
come to mind. First, the
North Florida Broad-
band Authority (NFBA)
announced a public
meeting to which all in-
terested persons were in-
vited. The NFBA is a
legal entity and public
body created pursuant to
the provisions of Sec-
tion 163.01, Florida
Statutes and an Inter-
local Agreement among:
Baker, Bradford, Colum-
bia, Gilchrist, Hamilton,
Jefferson, Levy, Madi-
son, Putnam, Suwannee,
Taylor and Union Coun-
ties and the municipali-
ties of Cedar Key, Cross
City, Lake City, Live Oak,
Monticello, White
Springs and Worthing-
ton Springs, Florida.
The announcement
within the October 23,
2009 edition of the Mon-
ticello News stated "the
regular meeting will be
held at 2:30 p.m. E.D.T.
on Friday, October 30,
2009 at the Lake City
Community College,
Medical Auditorium
Building. The NFBA
Board will address gen-
eral operating issues of
the NFBA". What is the
problem with this one
might ask? Well, on a
Friday at 2:30 p.m. the
average person, let's say,
'Joe the Plumber' is
more than likely sweat-
ing hard at work at their
day job. With the na-
tion's economy in the
condition as it is do you
blame them? The issue
of broadband technolo-
gy has very important
ramifications for resi-
dents throughout our re-
Next, an announce-
ment of yet another pub-
lic hearing caught my
eye as it was located in a
conspicuous manner in
the November 4, 2009
edition of the Monticello
News. It read thusly,
"Jefferson County, No-
vember 17, 2009, 11:30

a.m. -1:30 p.m......public
library, a meeting of the
Capital Region Trans-
portation Planning
Agency" (CRTPA). The
purpose of this meeting,
you guessed it, was "to
conduct an open house
meeting to provide your
input on the study's find-
ings". This referred of
course, to the fact that
the CRTPA has under-
taken a four county Re-
gional Transit Study,
which began in Febru-
ary 2009. I am sure this
meeting was advertised
within the Tallahassee
Democrat as well since
the service area includes
Leon County. At least
the November 16, 2009
CRTPA meeting for Leon
County residents was
held from 4:00 to 6:00
p.m. (at City Hall).
Nonetheless, I am
willing to bet that the
majority of these meet-
ings were poorly attend-
ed. Why? Simple my
good friend, most of us
were busy at work trying
to sustain a better quali-
ty of life for our fami-
lies. Coincidently, when
I contacted staff persons
responsible for the coor-
dination of the time and
location of these 'public
meetings' I was told that
they were being held so
as not to be an inconve-
nience to the Consul-
tants. Hey, what about
public meeting times
that accommodate the
working gals and guys?
What does history
teach us about the im-
portance of encouraging
public attendance and
input at 'public hear-
ings?' Aristotle opined
that "if liberty and
equality, as is thought by
some, are chiefly to be
found in democracy,
they will be best at-
tained when all persons
alike share in the gov-
ernment to the utmost".
Aristotle, a pupil of Pla-
to and a Teacher for
Alexander the Great
made this affirmation
back during the 4th cen-
tury B.C. Undoubtedly,
he is one of the most im-
portant figures in West-
ern philosophy
A more contempo-

rary position on the ne-
cessity of citizen partici-
pation at public
hearings is provided by
a fellow by the name of
Bob Meinig. A Legal
Consultant for the Mu-
nicipal Research and
Services Center (MRSC)
of Washington, D.C.,
Bob made his case for
the common man in his
article entitled "Public
Hearings When and How
to Hold Them; August
1998; MRSC News brief

Mr. Meinig asserts
that although a public
hearing is also a public
meeting; the main pur-
pose of most public
hearings is to obtain
public testimony or com-
ment. He goes further to
state that there are two
types of public hearings,
legislative and quasi-ju-
dicial, and it is impor-
tant to understand the
distinction between
them. The purpose of a
legislative public hear-
ing is to obtain public in-
put on legislative
decisions on matters of
policy Legislative pub-
lic hearings are general-
ly less formal than
quasi-judicial public
hearings. According to
Bob, they do not involve
the legal rights of spe-
cific, private parties in a
contested setting, but
rather affect a wider
range of citizens or per-
haps the entire jurisdic-
In addition, after
visiting the National
Association of Counties
(NACO) website earlier
this evening, I learned
that they assertively
promote public partici-
pation at public forums.
As some of you may
know, NACO was found-
ed in 1935 and provides
essential services to the
nation's 3,068 counties,
including Jefferson and
surrounding counties.
NACO advances issues
with a unified voice be-
fore the federal govern-
ment, improves the
public's understanding
of county government,
and provides value-
added services to save
counties and taxpayers

money. Bottom line,
public hearings provide
valuable opportunities
for our citizens (both
common and elite) to
share their insight on
relevant issues such as
regional transportation
dynamics, develop-
ments of regional im-
pact (DRIs), and
broadband technolo-
Essentially, it is vi-
tally important that the
consumers of public
services be given an op-
portunity to comment
on draft policy issues
prior to them becoming
final public law. Public
hearings by the NFBA,
the CRTPA, and other
entities should be held
at a time and place that
truly considers the
plight of the general
public..... the Joe the
Plumber and Natasha
the Network Adminis-
trator types who want to
have their say at the
public forum. That way
we will have a final
product that just might
represent the vision and
desires of the general
public. It affects our lib-
erty and equality I be-
lieve Aristotle
supported this notion
long time ago.

Happy Birthday

A mother's treasure
is her daughter
-- Catherine Pulsifer
This Friday, Novem-
ber 27, marks the 17th
birthday of my oldest
daughter, Cheltsie.
I can't let this oppor-
tunity go by without send-
ing out special birthday
wishes to her and to let
her know how proud I am
that she is my daughter.
I have been proud of
Cheltsie in many different aspects of her life, over the
last 17 years.
I was proud when she learned to tie her own shoe.
I was proud when she learned her ABC's, and I was
proud when she learned to write her name.
As she grew on up into elementary school and mid-
dle school, I was proud that she knew to treat others
with respect and compassion. She made friends with
everyone, and was a friend to everyone.
And now here we are, 17 years old and a junior in
high school. The word proud just doesn't seem a big
enough word. I'm very
proud of her athletic abili-
ty, her hunting skills, and
her dancing skills, but
most of all I'm so proud of
her Christian ethics, her
Moral values, and the
young lady that she is
growing in to. She is truly
beautiful on the outside
AND on the inside.
Happy birthday,
Cheltsie! I Love You and
I'm So Very Proud Of You!
God Has Blessed Me

Summer on

Uranus lasts for

21 years but so

does winter.

I'm tempted to
write about health
- care legislation be-
cause the issue is boil-
ing on Capitol Hill,
but I'll resist the temp-
3- station this week. In-
stead, let's talk about
e the "elephant in the
room," jobs and the
e unemployed. Without
a doubt, this is the
most important issue
on the minds of the
* American people -
much more important
p than health care.
It should be obvi-
p ous why this is such
* an important topic,
| but let's assume noth-
ing. People at work
are the foundation of
any economy. When
people have a job, they
can provide for them-
selves and their fami-
@ ly; put their dreams
for the future into ac-
Stion; pay their bills
, and save ... the list
p goes on and on. And
they can pay their tax-
0 es to fund the govern-
ment services they
I depend upon. The
* foundation of our na-
P tion (outside the spiri-
tual realm) is the
economy and the jobs
that our citizens use to
earn their living.
Among other
things, our national
security is dependent
on a strong and vi-
brant economy. In the
1980s, the Soviet Union
was militarily strong,
but their strength was
meaningless because
their economy was on
the verge of collapse.
North Korea has a
huge standing army,
but without an econo-
my to support it. If
they decided to invade
South Korea tomor-
row, they barely have
enough fuel to move
that massive army 50
miles south. What
good is military might
without the economic
underpinnings to sup-
port it?
President Obama
has been in office for
nearly a year, and it
seems that he has only
recently focused on
the growing unem-
ployment rate. In-
stead, he has pushed
his legislative efforts
on long term reforms
like Cap & Trade and
health care.
Obama's first pri-
ority was the Stimulus
Package, but he
turned that effort over
to the liberals in Con-
gress. Nancy Pelosi
and her cohorts wrote
a $787 billion bill that


was filled for the most
part with meaningless
"wish lists" from lib-
eral interest groups.
As a consequence, the
Stimulus hasn't pro-
duced jobs. Rather
than the 8 percent un-
employment ceiling
that Obama promised,
the rate has zoomed to
10.2 percent and climb-
ing, the highest since
1983. The Obama peo-
ple are talking about
all the jobs that they
have saved, but the me-
dia has done a fairly
credible job in proving
that these claims are
mostly fiction. In-
stead, pay attention to
the unemployment
A centerpiece of
the Stimulus has been
to extend unemploy-
ment benefits. Would
someone please ex-
plain how additional
unemployment bene-
fits stimulate the econ-
omy to grow and add
It appears that
what few jobs might
have been added since
the Stimulus passed in
February have been in
the public sector gov-
ernment jobs. How
has this strengthened
the economy? Typical-
ly, these jobs cost
much more than pri-
vate sector jobs, and
they often result in
meaningless work.
Meaningful work -
here is a topic that is
worth exploring. Do
you recall the 1999
comedy, Office Space?
The hero works for a
company called
Initech and his job re-
volves around produc-
ing TPS reports that
no one ever reads. His
job has no meaning
and his labor is essen-
tially worthless. Need-
less to say, Peter isn't
very motivated.
This type of mean-
ingless work exists in
any organization, but
it is more likely to oc-
cur in the public sec-
tor than in the private
sector, and it is more
likely to occur in large
organizations rather
than small. The least
likely place for mean-
ingless work to occur
is in a small business

where input and out-
put are tightly focused
and controlled. And
don't forget, small
business is the engine
for growth and new
The irony is that
the legislative priori-
ties of the Obama Ad-
ministration, Cap &
Trade and health care,
are job killers. The
business community
has been adamant
about this, but they
hold little sway with
the Democrats in pow-
Liberal environ-
mentalists tout so-
called "green jobs,"
but they are a myth.
Look at the track
record of the green
economy, particularly
in Europe, and this
will prove my point.
The reason that green
jobs are mythical is
because they aren't
economically viable or
sustainable. Their
premise defies the
laws of physics, and
they are bound to fail.
There is a bright
ray of hope for Florid-
ians. Our state worker
payroll is the most
austere in the nation -
we have 118 state
workers for every 10
thousand citizens,
where the national av-
erage is 214. Good for
The president has
called for a post-
Thanksgiving "jobs
summit," but I predict
not much will come of
it. That's because
Obama doesn't have
any experience in cre-
ating actual employ-
ment and he
philosophically rejects
the formula for actual-
ly stimulating the
What is that for-
mula? Lower taxes
and credits for job cre-
ation and capital in-
vestment. Lower taxes
on small businesses
who understand their
customers and provide
useful products and,
in turn, will add to
their payroll. These
are the ingredients to
juice up the economy,
but I doubt you will
see them coming from
this White House.

Words To

Never argue with an
idiot. The people
watching might not
know the difference.
If you must choose
between two evils,
pick the one you've
never tried before.
The statistics on
sanity are that one
out of every four
people is suffering
from some sort of
mental illness. Think
of your three best
friends -- if they're
okay, then it's you.
Just remember........if
the world didn't suck,
we'd all fall off.
Everyone has a
memory. Some just
don't have film.
Some people are like
Slinkies ... not
really good for
anything, but you
still can't help but

During the annual Aucilla Christian academy Board Raffle, Principal Richard Finlayson announced that
the main building at the school would be named the Demott/Gerry Building. Finlayson awarded plaques to
Dick and Cornelia Corbett, and Herbert G. and Linda Demott thanking them for their years of dedication to
the school.

Special to the Madison County Carrier
On Friday night, November 13, during the Au-
cilla Christian Academy Board Raffle, principal
Richard Finlayson announced that the Board of Di-
rectors was naming the historic main building in
honor of Herbert Demott and the late Mr. and Mrs.
Edward Gerry
"This is a momentous occasion for our school,"
said Finlayson. Plaques of appreciation were pre-
sented to Demott and to Dick and Cornelia Corbett,
the daughter and son-in-law of the Gerrys.
Each plaque read: "Presented with sincere ap-
preciation from the entire Aucilla Christian Acade-
my Family on November 13, 2009 to (Dick and
Cornelia Corbett/Herbert G. Demott) in recognition
of the leadership and support of you and your fami-
ly for Aucilla Christian Academy throughout the
life of our school and in appreciation for your many
years of dedicated service to our school, our stu-
dents, and our Savior. To honor your efforts, the Au-
cilla Christian Academy main building will stand as
a permanent reminder of the importance of your
contributions to this ministry as the Mr. Herbert De-

mott/Mr. & Mrs. Edward Gerry Building."
Finlayson said this decision was made as a re-
sult of the success of the Securing the Future Cam-
paign in nearing $1.9 million in commitments, but
also to honor the service and support of these indi-
viduals over the last four decades.
Demott served as chairman of the ACA Board of
Directors from the time the school became Aucilla
Christian Academy until 1987. Since that time, he
has continued to be actively involved in the support
of this ministry He also served as Honorary Chair
of the Securing the Future campaign.
The Gerry family has generously supported the
financial needs of ACA from the time the school be-
gan. Mr. and Mrs. Corbett were the lead givers in
the Securing the Future campaign.
"We are pleased to have the Demott-Gerry Build-
ing stand as a permanent reminder of the impor-
tance of the contributions of Herbert Demott and
the Gerry family to our ministry," said Finlayson.
"We would not be able to be the thriving ministry
that we are today without the undying support of
these important people. God has used them to great-
ly bless our school and our students."

Everyone Wins When You Make
Charitable Gifts

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones

It's Thanksgiving time again. Like everyone, you have
many things in your life for which you are thankful. And
you may want to show your appreciation for what you
have by making a gift to a charitable organization. If
you do, both you and the charitable group can come
out ahead.

Of course, it's no secret that 2009 has been a pretty
rough year, with most of us feeling the effects of the
recession in one way or another. Consequently, you
may feel that you can't really afford to make charitable
gifts right now. But there's probably never been a more
urgent need for these gifts, as the distressed economy
has led to a decline in contributions for charities
across the country. Furthermore, your charitable gift
can provide you with some distinct economic advan-

Specifically, by making charitable contributions, you
can gain these tax benefits:

You can take an immediate tax deduction. If you
itemize your taxes, you can deduct your contributions to
charitable organizations, as long as they are "tax quali-
fied." (Be sure to ask the organization if it has tax-qual-
ified status.) Your tax deductions for charitable contribu-
tions are generally limited to 50 percent of your adjust-
ed gross income. (If you want to claim a deduction for
the 2009 tax year, you'll need to make your contribution
before Jan. 1.)
You can avoid capital gains taxes. If you want to
support a charitable group, you're not limited to making
cash contributions you can also donate other assets,
such as stocks or real estate. If you've held these assets
for a long time, their value may have risen considerably,
despite the volatility of the financial and real estate mar-
kets the past couple of years. If they have appreciated,
and you wanted to sell then, you'd have to pay capital
gains taxes on your profits. But if you donate these
assets, you can avoid the capital gains liability while still
claiming the tax deduction.
*You can remove assets from your taxable estate. In
2010, the estate tax is repealed, but it will be back in
2011. Estate taxes can be heavy, and if your heirs aren't
prepared for them, they may have to sell assets to pay
them. To possibly help avoid this problem, you may want
to reduce the value of your taxable estate. One way of
doing this and of also receiving an immediate income
tax deduction is to donate assets, such as invest-
ments and property, to a charitable group. If you want to
still enjoy the benefits of these assets while you're alive,
you could transfer them to a charitable remainder trust,
which can then sell them and reinvest the proceeds, out
of which you could receive an income stream for life.
Upon your death, the charity you have designated will
receive the remainder of the trust's assets. (To properly
establish this type of trust, you'll need to work with a
qualified legal advisor.)

As you can see, the old saying "when you give, you
also receive" is certainly true when it comes to making
charitable donations. So, during the upcoming holiday
season, be as generous as possible to charitable
groups and to yourself.

The March of Dimes

the March of Dimes fo-

problem of premature

weeks gestation). Also for
the second consecutive
year, the United States
earned only a "D" on the
Report Card, demonstrat-

long way to go before all

babies in America get a

Hadden said the
March of Dimes will con-
tinue to work with state
officials and health care
providers to reduce the
percentage of women of
child-bearing age who
smoke; reduce the percent
of uninsured women of
child-bearing age and low-
ering the late preterm
birth rate, changes that
can help lower the
preterm birth rate.
In Florida, the rate of
late preterm births is
9.8%; the rate of women
smoking is 19.8%, and the
rate of uninsured women
is 27 %.
In the US, more than
540,000 babies are born
too soon each year.
Preterm birth is a seri-
ous health problem that
costs the United States
more than $26 billion an-
nually, according to the
Institute of Medicine. It
is the leading cause of
newborn death and ba-
bies who survive an early
birth often face the risk
of lifetime health chal-

lenges, such as breathing
problems, mental retarda-
tion and others. A March

in October found that 13
million babies worldwide
were born preterm and
more than one million die

Managing iabetes

WhileHoliay Shppin

With Black Friday quickly ap-
proaching, millions of Americans are
already preparing for the holiday
"shop 'til you drop" marathon. But for
the 24 million Americans living with
diabetes, it is critical to plan beyond
getting the best sale to ensure diabetes
doesn't interfere with holiday shop-
Marc Wolf, registered pharmacist
and CEO of Diabetic Care Services
), provides the following tips to help
people with diabetes prepare for the
holiday shopping season.
1. Dress for success. Crowded
parking lots and long-lines are a given
when holiday shopping. It is impor-
tant to wear comfortable, supportive
closed-toe shoes and special diabetic
socks to protect feet.
Also, be sure to give careful con-
sideration to how you will carry extra
diabetes testing supplies and medica-
tions. With numerous shopping bags
to tote during an extended shopping
trip, consider storing supplies in a
purse or satchel with a long strap that
you can sling over across your chest.
Securing your bag this way will help
you avoid setting it down at a cash reg-
ister and accidentally leaving it be-
2. Arm yourself to battle lows. In
addition to diabetes testing supplies
and medications, pack several healthy
snacks that are proven to quickly bat-
tle low blood glucose levels. If you feel
a low coming on while in a store that
does not allow food or drink, products
like Glucose RapidSpray, available

m, deliver glucose in spray form that
is quickly absorbed.
3. Make a list...and check it
twice! Cut down on the time and ener-
gy spent holiday shopping by prepar-
ing a list of items before leaving the
house. To shave even more time off
your trip, comparison shop online to
determine which stores have the
prices and selections you want.
4. Balance is key. Before embark-
ing on a shopping trip, eat a balanced
meal that includes protein and fat.
Protein and fat help balance energy
and prevent low blood sugar.
5. Multi-task. When shopping for
friends or family members that also
have diabetes, shop for gifts and for
yourself at the same time. Online dia-
betes suppliers and pharmacies like
Diabetic Express, http://www.Diabetic, sell items that make
great holiday gifts, including fashion-
forward diabetes supply cases and the
latest meters.
6. Relax. According to the Amer-
ican Diabetes Association, stress hor-
mones can directly alter blood glucose
levels. Incorporate small tasks into
your shopping routine that make the
process less stressful, including:
Read advertisements carefully
to ensure you understand limitations
on special deals.
Only use cash to avoid spend-
ing more than you should.
Always ask for a gift receipt.
Schedule shopping trips at the
beginning of the week and later in the
day, when stores are less crowded.

"Parents have long
believed and research
bears out that teenagers
are more apt to pursue
risky behavior if they be-

it,'" research from the
University of Wisconsin

its-kind study, the re-
search team found that

study's author, makes

Dr. Megan Moreno,
assistant professor of
pediatrics at the UW
School of Medicine and
Public Health, conduct-
ed focus groups involv-
ing adolescents, ages
11-18. Her research is
published in the October
issue of Journal of Ado-
lescent Health.
"We now have this
first step of hearing

My tooth cracked and broke when I was eating. I
was just eating a turkey sandwich. It is not like I was
eating something hard like ice or peanut brittle. Why
did it break?
I hear this every year after Thanksgiving. The Big
meals, the holiday festivities frustrated by a cracked
tooth. Oddly enough it so very frequently happens
when eating bread....go figure. Strange as that may
sound, I hear this almost every week. I have not
heard it eating Jell-O, but I hear it frequently about
It happens that way because the tooth already has
a crack that you do not know about. Teeth that have
large silver fillings develop micro cracks over the
years of hot and cold foods along with chewing and
grinding forces. The cracks will often propagate
slowly and then all of a sudden crack off a portion of
the tooth. Have you ever seen a small "star crack" in
your pick up truck windshield from a pebble that hit
the windshield while driving on the highway? That
crack can sit there for months and not change at all.
Then one morning you go outside to the truck when
the temperature dipped down to freezing. You look at
your windshield and the crack went all the way across
over night. That is kind of the same thing that
happens to teeth. Just eating a simple sandwich and
the tooth gives way. You may not have even known
there was a crack. Your dentist will be looking for
cracks in your teeth at your cleaning visits. It is
certainly nice to catch the crack before it travels into
the nerve of the tooth because that does not enhance
Holiday festivities.
Sometimes the tooth will give you a warning, like
feeling a shock or lightening bolt sensation when you
bite down. That shock sensation is frequently a sign
that a crack has developed. If any of this sounds like
you, get your teeth examined and fix those cracks
before they ruin your Holidays.

teens say, 'If we see our
peers displaying this be-
havior on a social-net-
working website, we
believe it is real," said
"Previous research
studies have illustrated
that adolescents are
more likely to engage in
behaviors such as alco-
hol use if they believe
their peers are doing so.
'If you learn that three
of your best friends
smoke, then you are
more than likely to
adopt that behavior,' she
says. 'This has been hap-
pening for decades. The
concern with social-net-
working websites is that
these behaviors are now
published and accessible
to a much larger net-

than a teens' typical

According to
Moreno, younger adoles-

years old) were especial-
ly intrigued by depic-

were more likely to be-

"The younger teens
were more impression-

what they saw was

Moreno. 'They would
say, 'Wow, they put that

they must be drink-

No Mixed Message: Smoking Kills
A health commentary that's
so obvious, it's scary

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
There are a variety
of tobacco-free advo-
cates, ranging from all-
or-nothing crusaders to
those who comply only
where young children
begin begging for fresh
air in the car. As recent-
ly as a few years ago,
many of the more out-
spoken opponents of the
deadliest "volunteer"
killer on the planet were
still considered extrem-
ist. But this is no longer.
In Madison County,
as throughout the state
and country, tobacco-
free programs and poli-
cies are rolling out in
full force. At the heart of
one side of the battle is
the idea that a person
should have the right to
treat his or her own body
any way they choose,
even if it is taxpayer dol-
lars that are used to pro-
vide the impending
medical attention virtu-
ally all smokers en-
counter sooner or later
(from Medicare costs, for
instance). And this does-
n't take into account the
numerous adverse phys-
ical effects of second-
hand smoke.
There are some situ-
ations, however, where
virtually all agree that
smoking should be
banned, like in a day-
care, theatre or perhaps
a plane. The following
recent editorial vividly
illustrates another sce-
nario; one so bizarre
few would believe it pos-
"Given what we
know about the deadly
health impacts of smok-
ing, it never made sense
for area hospitals to al-
low smoking anywhere
on their property So last

week's announcement
by three local hospitals
that they are banning
smoking was too long in
coming, but welcome
"Sacred Heart, Bap-
tist and Pensacola Naval
hospitals joined Santa
Rosa Medical Center,
which had previously
banned smoking, in
sending an important
message: smoking kills.
Appropriately, the an-
nouncement was made
at the American Cancer
Society's Pensacola
'At the very least the
hospitals end the ironic
possibility that a smok-
ing-induced heart attack
could lead to a patient
going directly from a
designated hospital
smoking area to the
emergency room.
"An exaggeration?
Maybe not, even if we
understand that patients
or employees who smoke
will still do so in their
cars, on the way to or
from the hospital, at
home or, in the case of
patients, at work (where
it is still allowed, that
'As usual, smokers
don't like this impinge-
ment on their "rights,"
apparently without see-
ing that they are so ad-
dicted to the stuff that
losing a place to indulge
in it is more worrisome
than the addiction's hold
on them, or the impact it
is having on their
"But letting smokers
consume their poison on
hospital grounds is sort
of like AA allowing at-
tendees to have a beer on
their meeting breaks a
direct contradiction of
the whole point."
