Cain said of his first at bat for the Mil-

A Dpre ciatio AFor

Dear Editor:
I would like to express my deep appreciation to
our county leaders, particularly our County Com-
missioners, County Coordinator Allen Cherry
and Solid Waste & Recycling Coordinator
Jerome Wyche, for going the extra-mile to in-
vite Neil Seldman, President of the Institute for Lo-
cal Self-Reliance, to Madison County to discuss
initiatives that could expand our local tax base and
create jobs.
Dr. Seldman's presentation was very informa-
tive, offering great hope for our county/region. He
said Madison County is in a unique situa-
tion because we own our own landfill. He was espe-
cially complimentary of the outstanding job
Mr. Wyche has done with Madison County's solid
waste and recycling program. Dr. Seldman stat-
ed that it was very "unusual" to see a program, as
outstanding as ours, and that Madison County has
many avenues open for new green jobs and oppor-
Our family is proud that our county leaders,
both past and present, have led and continue to lead
Madison County in the
right direction both sustainably and economical-
ly. Both go hand in hand.
I hope our leaders will carefully consider the
opportunities Dr. Seldman has described.

By Paul Niemann
We usually write about
Americans in this column, but
I uncovered a story about a for-
eigner that is just so good that
I have to tell you about it. Be-
sides, he served with the Allies
in World War II, so our hero ac-
tually makes the cut on a tech-
During World War II, in the
spring of 1943, Major William
Martin wias wiith Britain's Roy-
al Marines for a short period of
time. I can't tell you about his
background because his family
and Lt. Commander Ewen
Montagu are the only ones who
knew his background. And
they weren't talking.
What I can tell you is that
Major William Martin may
have single-handedly changed
the course of history. All he
did was change the outcome of
an important battle by throw-
ing the Germans off of their
plans. Yet this was the only
mission that this war hero ever
During his one mission,
Major Martin convinced the
Germans that the Allies' plans
to attack at Sicily were fake.
The result is that Germany
pulled back on their defense at
Sicily and reassigned those
troops to Greece to fight a bat-
tle that didn't even exist. In the
process, this plan saved the
lives of many Allied soldiers.
But the most interesting
thing about his story is the fact
that he carried out his mission
after he died!
How is that possible, you

I'm glad you asked. You see,
Lt. Commander Montagu came
up with a brilliant, if not mor-
bid, plan. They would dress a
deceased body to make him
look like a British officer and
plant fake evidence on him to
throw off the German army,
then throw him overboard into
the Atlantic Ocean. The papers
that he carried with him would
mislead the Germans into
thinking that the Allies were
planning to attack Sardinia
and Greece, not Sicily.
Then they would pack his
body in dry ice to keep it from
deteriorating before throwing
him into the ocean, where his
body would wash ashore onto
the coast of Spain and be dis-
covered by a Spaniard. The
Spaniard would then unknow-
ingly turn the fake evidence
over to the German army. The
Germans, thinking that the
major's plane must have
crashed into the Atlantic
Ocean, would then act on the
fake evidence.
For this plan to be effec-
tive, every element of the plan
would have to work perfectly,
and it did!
The evidence planted on
Major Martin's body included
a fake letter from his father, as
well as a fake letter from his
non-existent fiance~, stubs of
theatre tickets and a letter
from his bank. Also included
was his identification card, a
photograph and a letter that
was signed by military offi-
cials that contained the fake

invasion plans.
The operation, known by
the code name of "Operation
Mincemeat," was so successful
that it fooled everyone who re-
viewed the fake evidence, go-
ing all the way up the chain of
command to Hitler. In fact,
Hitler personally sent Field
Marshall Erwin Rommel to
Greece to defend against an at-
tack that never happened. The
1st Panzer Division traveled all
the way across Europe to
Greece, reducing their number
of troops in other locations,
and the Axis forces were
moved from southern Sicily
(where the real battle was be-
ing fought) to northern Sicily.
There's one more thing
that you should know about
Major William Martin: His real
name wasn't William Martin -
it's just the name that the
British gave him and he ney-
er served in the military when
he was alive. Once Montagu
contacted his family, they
agreed to this plan only on the
condition that his real name
not be used, in order to protect
his identity.
Every element of the plan
involving the so-called Major
William Martin worked to per-
fection, and afterward winston
Churchill received a telegram
from his chief of staff with
just three words on it:
"Mincemeat swallowed

It is often said that
Americans 'vote their
pocketbook." I'm not so
sure that we have a mo-
nopoly on this idea I
suspect many other peo-
ple around the world put
economic issues at the
top of their electo ga t

less, with the economy
in the tank, it doesn't
look good for the party
in charge (Democrat)
barely three months
from this year's mid-
term election,
On the heels of a
deep recession, things
don't look good for the
economy. Unemploy-
ment hovers around the
ten percent mark; it
would be even higher if
so many hadn't given up
looking for work. The
Congress has just fin-
ished extending unem-
ployment benefits
through 99 weeks in
essence, two years.
These benefits are start-
ing to look like a never-
ending entitlement.
Last week, the
White House announced
that this year's deficit,
already past the trillion
dollar mark, will top out
at $1.47 trillion. For
every dollar that the fed-
eral government spends,
it is borrowing 41 cents.
Every American house-
hold now understands
what business has
known for some time -
this is a fiscal train
wreck. We cannot sus-
tain debt levels like this.
I think I'm correct
in saying this: in barely
a year and a half in of-
fice, Obama has added
more to the nation's debt
than George Bush did in
eight years. Think
about it. Obama's pro-
jection for future bud-
gets show trillion dollar
deficits as far as the eye
can see.
The reason that
businesses, small and
large, are not hiring is
because of uncertainty.
If there is one thing that

the economic world
hates, it's uncertainty.
Banks do not lend in
an uncertain economy.
Business will not ex-
pand if there is uncer-
tainty over future
growth and they won't
hire new employees.
The economic world is
by nature conservative.
It's a fact of life.
So, what is leading
to this economic un-
ease? A big chunk of
this uncertainty is the
result of liberal policies
from the Obama Admin-
istration and the
Pelosi/Reid-led Con-
gress. The debt and
yearly deficits brought
on by ineffective stimu-
lus and numerous gov-
ernment bailouts are
great concerns for busi-
Equally problematic
are the health care legis-
lation and financial reg-
ulatory reform. We do
not understand or com-
prehend the changes
that these pieces of leg-
islation will bring. The
lawmakers who voted
for this did not under-
stand the thousands of
pages of regulations
that were in the two
bills. The unintended
consequences will be
many. It only stands to
reason that business
will sit on the sidelines
until it is clear what
these two laws will mean
to their future.
While the employ-
ment atmosphere is not
robust, it is important
for those who have lost a
job to reassess their em-
ployability. Are their
skills and experience ap-
propriate for the current
and future economy? If

not, then a change of
course and retraining
may be necessary to re-
turn to work.
Let me give you an
example. Last Week'
President Obama ap-
peared in the Rose Gar-
den to urge passage of
unemployment benefits.
With him were three
people who had lost
their jobs. One was a
real estate salesman; an-
other was a fitness train-
er; and the third was an
auto parts manager. I
don't mean to disparage
these careers, but if I
were in their shoes and
couldn't find work, I'd be
much more concerned
with retraining for an-
other career than draw-
ing unemployment.
For example, the fit-
ness trainer might think
about a health related
profession like nursing.
Real estate is in the pits,
so the salesman might
want to think about an-
other line of sales. The
parts manager might
want to think about
technical training in
auto or truck repair. I'd
take a very serious look
at current job availabili-
ty and what type of edu-
cation and opportunity
would improve my
chances of employment.
This is a sad and dis-
tressing time. Typically,
when we climb out of a
recession, the growth
rate is very robust on
the order of 7 to 8 per-
cent. What little recov-
ery we have seen has
been anemic less than
3 percent. The president
might be crowing about
the economy, but the
American people know

Are Municipal Bonds
Right for You?
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones

Tax season "officially" ended on April 15. Yet you can
explore tax-smart investment opportunities all year
round. And when you're looking at the fixed-income side
of your portfolio, you may want to consider two possibili-
ties: municipal bonds and Build America Bonds.
You've probably heard of municipal bonds, but you may
not be familiar with how they work. You can find two key
types of municipal bonds: General obligation bonds
finance the daily operations of a municipality or school
district, while revenue bonds finance hospitals, utilities,
airports, affordable housing and other public works. So
when you purchase a "muni," you are helping support a
Of course, your investment will bring you some tangible
benefits, too. First, you'll receive regular interest pay-
ments. Furthermore, these payments typically are
exempt from federal income taxes and possibly state
and local income taxes, too. If you're in an upper income
bracket, you may find munis to be especially valuable.
(Keep in mind, though, that some "private activity bonds,"
which are typically used to finance airports, housing or
stadiums that can benefit private entities, may be subject
to the alternative minimum tax, or AMT.)
Build America Bonds (BABs) share some similarities
with tax-free municipal bonds, although BABs are taxable
investments. BABs provide capital to municipalities so
that they can build or improve infrastructure, including
schools, roads, public buildings and so on. The U.S.
Treasury pays state or local government issuers a sub-
sidy equal to 35% of the interest they pay investors for
buying the bonds.
BABs have proved quite popular among institutional
investors, such as pension funds, that typically don't ben-
efit from tax-free municipal bonds. But are they right for
It all depends on your individual situation. If you owned
a BAB, your interest payments would be federally taxable,
but you might get some state tax breaks if you live in the
state where the bond is issued.

Many BABs have long-term maturities, which may not
be a problem if you're buying the bond for its steady inter-
est payments and plan to hold it for its entire life. But if
you think you might want to sell your bond before it
matures, be aware that longer-term bonds, by their very
nature, are subject to greater interest rate risk than short-
er-term bonds that is, longer-term bond prices will be
more affected by interest rate movements.
Furthermore, you'll have to consider credit risk the
possibility that the issuer of your bond will default or be
unable to make payments. Remember, the municipality
i su ngl uh bnd noth fdra igovrnam r t, es oa
future results, municipal bonds' historical default rates
have been low.
Ultimately, you'll need to consult with your tax advisor
before purchasing either a municipal bond or a BAB. Like
all investments, they can provide you with benefits, but
you need to be absolutely sure of what you're getting.

Florida's Nonagricultural Employment by Indus-
try (Seasonally Adjusted)
The number of jobs in Florida is 7,232,500 in
June, down 10,200 compared to a year ago. The indus-
try losing the most jobs is construction (-28,000 jobs, -
Other industries losing jobs over the year in-
clude: financial activities (-22,000 jobs, -4.5%); manu-
facturing (-10,800 jobs, -3.3%); information (-10,300 jobs,
-7.2%); and leisure and hospitality (-8,700 jobs, -1.0 %).
These industry job losses are partially due to
weakness in specialty trade contractors; credit inter-
mediation; fabricated metal product manufacturing;
telecommunications; and food services and drinking
The industries gaining jobs include: private ed-
ucation and health services (+29,600 jobs, +2.8%); gov-

services (+16,300 jobs, +1.6%); trade, transportation,
and utilities (+1,900 jobs, +.1%); and other services

Local Area Unemployment Statistics (Not Season-
ally Adjusted)
In June, Liberty County had the state's lowest
unemployment rate (6.8%), followed by Monroe and
Walton (7.4%); Okaloosa (7.6%); Lafayette (7.9%); and
Franklin (8.0 %). Many of the counties with the lowest
unemployment rates are those with relatively high
proportions of government employment. Others had
seasonal increases in tourism and increases in em-
ployment related to the Gulf oil spill.
Hendry County (16.1%) had the highest unem-
ployment rate, followed by Flagler (15.4%), St. Lucie
(14.3%), Hernando and Indian River (14.2% each), and
Marion (13.9%). Most of the counties with the highest
unemployment rates experienced seasonal declines in
agriculture and related industries. Others had contin-
ued weakness in construction and financial activities,
There are 47 Florida counties with double-digit unem-
ployment rates in June, up from 44 the previous

Pensacola-Ferry Pass-Brent (+500 jobs, +.3%); and
Palm Coast (+100 jobs, +0.6%) gained jobs over the

Patricia said that when they were growing up,
her two sons, Lorenzo, and his brother, Delvin Gal-
lon, only seemed to like football and pro wrestling,
"Lorenzo is a big Dallas Cowboys fan," she said,
"and he and his brother absolutely loved wrestling
when they were growing up."
Lorenzo went to Tallahassee Community Col-
lege on a scholarship and left after one year to join
the Milwaukee Brewers' farm system. In 2006, he
broke a record for the most at bats for a team in West
Virginia. The Class A team gave him a bat that was
painted gold for his accomplishment.
The next few years, Lorenzo journeyed around
the farm system, eventually landing in Nashville,
Tenn. A week after going to Nashville, he received a
call up. He was sent back after not playing and then
called up again the next week*
In his first five at bats, he got three hits, includ-
ing a double and one run.
Lorenzo was called up to replace a pitcher who
went on the disabled list. The team needed help in
the outfield, so they called him in to play centerfield.
Lorenzo said that he doesn't know what the fu-
ture holds for him.
"I'm pretty much playing it by ear," he said in a
telephone interview. "I'm just enjoying it right now,
I'm just content to go out and play hard."
Patricia said that she calls Lorenzo every day.
Even on days she doesn't get to talk to him, she
leaves a prayer for him on his voicemail. "I tell him,
that when the world says 'You can't,' God says, 'You

For School Soard

I am seeking the of-
fice of school board to
help provide an educated : .
workforce to meet the de-
mands of our communi.
ty. A quality educational
system is a must for eco.
nomic development and
is the foundation of our
local infrastructure that
is needed to attract new
industry. Every student
should graduate with the
skills needed to ensure a
working career.
The upcoming years wiill be very challenging
with the largest being student retention and recovery,
ensuring every student graduates with an education
that reaches his or her fullest potential.
I feel the training and experience I have gained
throughout my working career will benefit our school
system as well as the people of Madison County.
Some of this training consists of: using problem.
solving techniques to avoid liabilities, establishing
policies and procedures, developing people skills, and
environmental laws and regulations. Thirty-six years
of working as an Environmental Coordinator, Safety
Coordinator, Quality Mn~claZFer; Supervisor, Manage~r
and County Commissioner has enriched my profes-
sional experiences and has helped me develop abili-
ties in reviewing/setting and adhering to budgets,
resolving complaints, setting policies and proce-
dures, and setting and achieving goals.
I am a lifelong resident of Madison, the son of
Sara and Tommy Henderson, my wife Elaine and I
have one son Billy and one grandson Brent who is in
the eleventh grade.
I amn retired from Georgia Pacific and a member
of the First Baptist Church.
Our schools, towns, states and country have got
ten away from Christianity, on which our country
was founded and I feel we should get back to our
founding fathers beliefs of, one nation under God.

The Odom family have been citi-
zens of Madison County since the mid
1800's beginning with Sam Odom. On
July 17th, this family had the grand
opportunity to enjoy a time of fellow-
ship and fun together.
This was the first reunion the
family has ever had. Since the family
had not seen each other in many
years, the group had a fun time catch-
ing up on everything they had missed.
The 92 family members came
from northwestern Tennessee, Geor-
gia, Mississippi and many parts of
Florida. The youngest children ran

and played on the swings and jungle
gym while the younger adults and old-
er children played kick ball, bad-
minton, touch football and many
other games.
The family also served a buffet-
style lunch. Everyone brought a few of
their favorite dishes to share with the
rest of the family. "When the! day was
ended," shared Odom family member

"Looking for A Few
Good Trail Bosses"
Madison County High School has
not stopped just because the kids have
been released for a much needed sum-
mer break. Administrators and teach-
ers are meeting with a variety of
people to ensure that our students' ed-
ucation growth continues. Despite
what others might assume, we want to
continue to strive towards success for
all students, both in and out of class-
romsis summer students have
had opportunities to grow
through a variety of ac-
tivities. Summer
School was back at
the high school and
offered our stu-
dents a chance to
make up missing
onl"neandt u e-o
face teaching. wteh
FAMU and FSU to
provide opportunities
for students who were in-
terested in science, math
and medicine to have extended
learning through RIMS and SSTRIDE
activities beyond the school year. Sev-
eral of the groups on campus provide
camp and conference activities for stu-
dents to participate in, thanks in part
to the support of this community and
As we head towards the last
month of summer vacation we need
parents to partner up with MCHS fac-
ulty, staff and administration to make
sure that students complete their sum-
mer math and reading requirements.
In the old west every trail ride had a
boss and that's what we need. Stu-
dents, who attend Madison County
High School, need to read throughout
the summer to ensure that they are
continuing to use the skills they've
learned. For this we need parents and

community members to remind, en-
courage, and reward their teenagers
for completing this task.
The requirement is simple, read
two books off of the summer reading
list sent to 9th graders with their
FCAT scores for 10th and 11th graders
shown before school was out. If your
child is entering MCHS for the first
time as a 10th or 11th grade they still
need to complete the summer reading
requirement. Students will be tested
ot irneto sschnoblo ad i w 1 nt a
a test grade. Eleventh
graders who are taking a
College English
course are not re-
quired to complete
this assignment,
however if you are
an AP English stu-

you by Mrs. Webb.
SParents, we need
your help. If your stu-
dent is not sure of what book
to read please take them to the pub-
lic library. We have supplied them
with a list and they also have a selec-
tion of books, the list is much broad-
er this year than last.
For the future of the children
who live in this community, we all
need to ride this trail together. It was
once said "It takes a village to raise a
child." We would add "It takes a well
raised child to lead the village." Our
village depends on the education of
our children, as much as the children
depend on the village to provide an
education. We need everyone to ask a
kid, "What are you reading this sum-
mer?" And if they answer "I don't
know," then lend them your sugges-
tions of books you enjoyed back in
the day.

Centered on requirements outlined in the Ca-
reer and College Readiness Initiative (Senate Bill
1908) and Section 1008.30(3) of the Florida
Statutes, the workshop explored how area high
schools and NFCC can work together to help bet-
ter prepare local high school students for college
level work, especially in the area of math, while
me ting mandatory expectations set forth by the

The College and Career Readiness Initiative
covers not only math, but also the areas of reading
and writing. It requires that high school students
be given the state's postsecondary readiness as-
sessment exam before the 12th grade.
Students who pass by meeting or exceeding the
minimum test scores are eligible for enrollment in
college credit for two years without retesting. Stu-
dents who do not pass must be provided an oppor-
tunity to remediate while in high school and
remediation must be a collaborative effort between
district high schools and the college.
The overall goal is to make sure high school
students are ready for that next educational step
up to college. High schools are responsible for
identifying students to be tested and providing
testing locations. Florida colleges, such as NFCC,
are required to administer and score the exam and
to provide test results to high school representa-

those seeking a great
haircut for a wedding, re-

their ultimate look.
Quite popular for
ladies and girls this year
are the pixie cuts, side

she likes her hair short

Haircutting Icons
Flash back to 28
years ago when Janice
Lookabill began her hair
styling career, and she re-
members men and
women could get a nice
cut for $2.50. She works
at Roebuck Barber and
Beauty Shop, owned by
Jimmy and Princess Roe-
buck, at 422 SW Range
Street. Lookabill says
Jimmy Roebuck "taught
me everything I know."
Stylist Marlene
Webb, also of Roebuck
Barber and Beauty Shop,
brings her customers
into a striking red room
with white accents. One
sign says, "I'm a beauti-
cian, not a magician."
She and her husband
worked as farmers until
one day, at age 50, he
asked her what she want-
ed to do. "Hair styling"
was her dream ten years
ago and she still enjoys
her work today.
As for hairstyle
trends Webb is seeing
this year, she says: "Most
of the girls want inverted
V styles and long layers."
Over on US 90, Bren-
da Hicks of Brenda's
Styles, near Pizza Hut,
works through her day
amid pretty pink cur-
tains and black-and-
white chair accents
designed by her daugh-
ter, Summer. On the back
wall, a framed poster-size
photo of Hicks from 1969
shows her long blonde
hair during her first job
as a hair stylist.
"I do color, permit

said Hicks. She said she
has customers in all age
groups. Customer Joyce
Primm has followed
Hicks since her days at
the College Inn around
the late 70s, including a
move to Lee and then
back to Madison.
"I like our visits,"
said Hicks, whose salon
also has two tanning
rooms for customers 21

M~en's Baseball Takes

Madison Rebels team members in front from left to right: R.J. Kruger, Chris Hutsinger, Greg Vickers and Chris Andrews. Back row, left to right: Chris LaForte,
Bryan Tyler, Danny Collins, Trent Abbott, Doug Freer and Ryan Norris. Not pictured: Chad Thomas.

The Men's Adult Baseball League, MABL, is a league that provides men 18
years and older an opportunity to play organized baseball. The MABL is a na-
tional organization which took root this year in the area as Madison joined the
with the South Georgia Men's Adult Baseball League, which includes teams
from Valdosta, Tifton and Adel.
The North Florida Rebels are proudly representing Madison in the League,
with members from many of the surrounding counties, including several of
Madison's finest law enforcement officers. Team members have worked hard
this season to improve their baseball skills, while committing their time and ef-
fort to making great improvements to the NFCC baseball field. Their efforts are
showing, as players from south Georgia and Lake City agree that Madison has
the best fields in the league.
The Rebels would like to thank Aflac, Capital City Bank, Denny's, North
Florida Pharmacy and Yogi Bear Campground for helping to sponsor the team

this season.
This league allows men who have baseball in their blood to still get out
there and compete. Players are required to be a minimum of 2 years out of col-
lege or pro ball to play.
Though Madison has a record of 1-4 this season, there are plenty of high-
lights worth mentioning. Last week the team was led by switch-hitter Ryan
Norris, who went 3 for 4 with two home runs, one hit from each side of the plate.
One of the homers was a grand slam past the right field fence, which even the
opposing team had to acknowledge was an impressive feat.
Double-headers are held on Sunday afternoons at 1:30 and 4:00 at the NFCC
baseball field. A season-ending tournament is in the works for Madison Coun-
ty on August 21 and 22.
For more information on the league or Madison's team, please contact Greg
Vickers @ (850) 253-5107.

Getting fit often
means something differ-
ent to men and women,
from the exercises they
prefer to the way they
change their eating
habits to slim down.
"Men eat when
they're happy," said Eri-
ka Brown of The Fitness
Place in Madison. She
thinks many women
tend to eat when they're
unhappy, and when they
are stressed or sad.
"What we tell
women is that it's good
sometimes if you're an-
gry if you have a tread-
mill nearby. Get on it
and walk, instead of eat-
ing a carton of ice
cream. Working out is
good, too," said Brown,
who said endorphins re-
leased into the brain
from exercise make peo-
ple feel better about
their problems.
At The Fitness Place
last week, two buddies
agreed they eat when
they're happy.
Dustin Sparks of
Sparks Tractor in Madi-
son just got married to
his wife, Katie, last Sep-
tember 26. His says his
weight gain was imme-
diate: "We were so happy
with each other; we did-
n't care what we looked
like," said Sparks. "Be-
fore I knew it, I was up to
270 pounds."
Sparks said he came
home fatigued every day
with his feet hurting
from all the extra weight
he was carrying. Finally,
he made the decision
seven months ago to
work out and start eat-
ing right.
"I've lost 45 pounds,"
said Sparks. "What were
you saying about being
happy and eating more?
It's true, ain't it, Ben?"
he asked.
Ben Jones, who

works at All Realty Ser-
vices in Madison,
replied, "I bet I eat a lot
better, too. I lost 25
pounds. I got married in
February and I was get-
ting a little too much
fried food."
Jones and Sparks
agreed that cutting out
sweet tea, fried foods,
snack foods and ice
cream is a positive move
for weight loss. Sparks
said he made a switch to
eating a lot of fish and
salad in a low carb diet.
He switched from
sweet tea to Crystal
Light with no calories to
curb the sugar in the tea.
Men usually have
the potential to lose
more weight than
women, and at a faster
rate, because they have
more muscle mass.
Strength training is
recommended for men
and women who want to
lose weight. "When you
do strength training you
build more muscle, and
muscle burns more calo-
ries than fat when
you're not working out,"
said Brown.
Research has shown
that both sexes overesti-
mate how much physical
activity they're getting
compared to how many
calories they're woofing
down daily.
Weight Watchers
has also found that
women talk about diet-
ing, but men say they're
"getting in shape."
Women will shed
pounds for preventive
reasons, while men of-
ten wait until they have
a health problem like
hypertension or arthri-
As for the older gen-
eration, Brown said,
"I've seen older people
come in here. They're
not in here to lose
weight, but they're
working out for their

Sounds like you are a bit frustrated with your teeth. It sounds
like you are doing ;- r-:: rli ng~ you know how to do and the
sensitivity is getting on your nerves so to speak (sorry).
Don't give up or pull all your teeth! There may be a better

I would suggest that you call your Dentist and make an
appointment to see him/her. You may even want to make a
special appointment so your Dentist gets the idea that this is
significant enough that it is time to resolve the issue. Your
dentist can go thru a list of causes one by one to help you.
You may be surprised to know that there are at least 10
possible causes of tooth sensitivity. It is merely a process of
elimination. Many solutions are simple, painless, and cheap.

The cheapest solution is to look into your medicine cabinet.
Often the patients that take care of their teeth the most have
the biggest problem. They brush their teeth 5 times a day
with the latest Miracle Toothpaste. When they hurt they
might brush 6 or 7 times a day. What they don't know is the
Miracle Formula Toothpaste is what is causing the tooth
sensitivity. So what kind of toothpaste do you use? Does
you toothpaste promise to remove this and remove that? It
may be that formula which is making them so sensitive.I
suggest that you start by switching to Sensodyne toothpaste.
Use that for 6 weeks, along with ACT Fluoride mouthwash,
and see if it improves. Oh yeah, make an appointment with
your Dentist so he can guide you. Maybe you can enjoy Fruit
Smoothies by Labor day.

/ am from Louisiana and I know our beaches are our home,
our way of life and our livelihood. Protecting the coast and
cleaning up the beaches is very personal to me.
-Keith Seilhan, BP Cleanup

At BP~ we have taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf.
We are committed to keeping you informed.

Looking For Oil
Crews are cleaning Gulf Coast beaches 24 hours a day, 7 days
a week. When oil is spotted, the Response Command Center
is notified, a Shore Cleanup AssessmentTeam (SCAT) is
mobilized and cleanup begins immediately. Cleanup efforts are
being coordinated from 17 staging areas in Louisiana, Mississippi,
Alabama and Florida. Over 33,000 people are involved in the
cleanup operation.

If you see oil on the beach, please call 1-866-448-5816 and we'll
send a team to clean it up.

Cleaning Up the Beaches
The number of people mobilized to clean up the beaches depends
on the size of the affected area. Individual teams can number in
the hundreds, and thousands of additional workers remain on-call.
Working with the Coast Guard, our teams continue cleaning up
until the last bit of oil has been removed. As a result, in most
cases when oil reaches a beach, it is even possible to keep it open.

Our Responsibility
Our beach cleanup operations will continue until the last of the oil
has been skimmed from the sea, the beaches and estuaries have
been cleaned up, and the region has been pronounced oil-free.
And none of the costs of our efforts will be paid by taxpayers.

Our commitment is that we'll be here for as long as it takes.
We may not always be perfect, but we will make this right.

For Information visit: For assistance, please call: To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816 To report Impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401 To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858
