The idea of "going
green," making envi-
ronmentally con-
scious decisions, is
very popular in the
modern culture. Pub-
lic schools indoctri-
nate our children
with, this idea in, the
classroom every day.
Businesses adopt this
theme and it is one of
the more popular
Madison Avenue ad-
vertising ploys in
print and television.
It would appear
that if you are not
"going green," you are
seriously out-of-step
with the mood of the
American people. But
are we being sold a
bill-of-goods by politi-
cians and other huck-
sters posing as
environmental scien-
tists? It is a serious
question deserving
our attention?. For ex-
ample, if this is a bill-
of-goods, how much of
our school children's
attention and study
tim~e is being diverted
from serious studies
to junk science?
More than ten per-
cent ($92 billion) of
the Stimulus funds
are targeted toward
renewable energy pro-
jects. That money has
been obligated very
slowly and some of it
has gone to foreign
firms which obviously
does not help our
chronically high un-
employment rate.
This money is be-
ing squandered on
things like green
buildings, wind tur-
bines, and insulation
for older homes. The
Obama Administra-
tion is throwing mon-
ey at these projects
and has very little to
show for it in terms of
jb cet on
Do yr~'oun remember
the House vote on the
Cap and Trade bill in
thne summer of 2009? I
think it passed by a
narrow 219-212 mar-
gin. One of those aye
votes was Allen Boyd.
Immediately, he post-
ed a press release on
his website that tout-
ed all of the "green"
jobs that would result
from Cap and Trade.
Within days, that
press release was
pulled faster than a
derby winner never to
Boyd's lame excuse
for his vote: "Don't
worry. It isn't law
yet." That's comfort-
ing, isn't it? Boyd is
in, political trouble be-

For example, the
Obama greenies are
throwing a lot of mon-
ey at the electric auto-
mobile busineSS.
Currently, the cost for
the batteries to power
a sub-compact vehicle
for 100 miles between
an 8 hour recharge is
$33,000. Yikes, that's
expensive! And how
many of us who don't
live in large metropol-
itan, areas would be
able to use such a
short-range vehicle
with small carrying
capacity (four seats
and 200 pounds)? Not
many I daresay.
I just don't believe
there is going to be
much of a market for
these vehicles. I'm
not sure the hybrid
market will grow
much more. Also,
don't forget the safety
and maintenance con-
cerns associated with
these types of vehi-
cles. One of the
things that bothers
me the most about hy-
brids is the necessity
to maintain two en-
gines rather than one.
Here is what I'm
getting at when peo-
ple start to tout their
idea of green jobs, de-
velop a healthy sense
of skepticism. Ques-
tion them carefully
about the science and
economics of their
proposals. If the an-
swers you get are
f ishy or vague, move
on. it's simply mod-
ern day snake-oil.
I have a theory
about most of us and
the green industry.
We're willing to do
our part provided the
effort makes sense
and doesn't cost too
much. Recycling plaS-
tic bottles makeS
sense, so most of uS
join in. On the other
hand, revamping our
source of electricity
from fossil fuel to
wind and solar not
only doesn't make
sense, it won't work.

cause his values (and
votes) are more
aligned with big city
liberals like Nancy
Pelosi than the voters
of North Florida.
The "go green"
crowd led by charla-
tans like Boyd is chas-
ing a pipe dream, and
it is terribly expen-

Scientific fact does
not support alterna-

wind turbines and so-

hermal is quite

but we don't have the

move the energy
where it is needed -- a
few gigawatts of wind

There is one non-
fossil fuel energy
source that is proven
and would really
make a dent in our de-
pendence on foreign
oil, but it is an anathe-

crowd. I'm speaking
of course about nu-
clear energy. These
power plants are very
expensive to build and
we must solve the
problem of waste dis-
posal, but they are
very efficient. France
gets 80 percent of its
electricity from
nukes. We get 20 per-
cent, and there hasn't

The problem with
all of this go-green
business and its mot-

Hollywood elite sup-

dence. Their

dependent on govern-

added, completely unabashed.
We tried to act quite noncha-

time. But when our orders were
brought out, I didn't enjoy mine.
I couldn't take my eyes off Jim
as his pie a-la-mode went down.
The other guys couldn't believe it.
They ate their lunches silently and

I try to eat the food I need, and

and mom and grandpa helped me spread it around,"
she said. "(Re~v) Randy Lamb is another person who

This country star hopeful began singing at
church when she was two years old. In her family,
it's just expected that everyone will sing. Now 21 and
a new bride, she's performed at many events over
the years. "I was raised around singing," she points
out. Her grandfather was in a bluegrass band, and
her mom has led the music for many years at the
church they attend. "I've had lots of opportunities to
sing. I began doing 20-30 minute sets around 10 or
11," she said. Amber adds that while she enjoys
singing, she had not even thought about entering the
Colgate contest again this year as she was busy as a
new bride and had tried three times previously to
win. "My sister told me I needed to sign up," she
said. "I did it for my sister, Kristy Skinner!" Amber
adds that she never even thought about winning, she
just loves singing. But, after four tries, she's now the
North Florida winner and headed towards that
$100,000 prize.

Avoid Dangers of
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
When you were in school, you had to concentrate on your
studies. When you began your career, you had to concen-
trate on your work. In fact, in just about every endeavor in
life, concentration is essential for success. However, as
an investor, you may find that you actually don't want to
concentrate too much.
That's not to say you shouldn't concentrate on your
investment decisions you should. But if you concen-
trate too much money in one investment, or one type of
investment, you could run into problems.
Suppose, for example, that your portfolio is almost entire-
ly devoted to growth stocks. During a good economy,
growth stocks generally tend to do well, so if we're enjoy-
ing a period of sustained growth, your portfolio might
show some good returns. But if the economy slumps
while you own only growth stocks, you could sustain loss-
es that may take a long time from which to recover. On
the other hand, if you over-concentrate on fixed-income
investments, such as bonds, your principal value might
increase when interest rates are falling (as interest rates
and bond prices are inversely related), but when interest
rates rise, your bond portfolio will likely lose principal
To help avoid the problems of over-concentration, it's
important to own a range of investments, which may
include stocks, bonds, government securities and certifi-
cates of deposit (CDs). While this type of diversification
cannot, by itself, guarantee a profit or protect against
loss, it can help reduce the effects of volatility on your
Of course, how you choose to allocate your assets will
depend on a variety of factors, including the following:
Your goals Your ultimate objectives should help govern
your investment strategy. If you are planning to retire early
and then start a new business, you may need to invest
more aggressively than, say, your neighbor, who wants to
work as long as possible and then stay close to home,
pursuing inexpensive hobbies.
*Your risk tolerance Just as we all have different
personalities, we have different tolerances for investment
risk. If you can assume greater risk in exchange for
potentially higher returns, you may be a more aggressive
investor. Conversely, if you're willing to take lower returns
as a trade-off for greater protection of your principal,
you're probably a more conservative investor. However, to
achieve your goals, you may consider moving outside
your investment "comfort zone" from time to time.
*Your time horizon -Your stage of life will also affect
your investment choices. If you are just starting your
career, you can probably afford to invest more aggres-
sively than if you are nearing retirement, at which time
you may want to cut down on risks.
To build a diversified portfolio that reflects your goals, risk
tolerance and time horizon, you may want to work with a
professional financial advisor -- someone who can
assess your situation and recommend choices that are
appropriate for your needs. By concentrating on a unified

H lea Ith a nd Safety

No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the
beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup
in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed.

Restoring Gulf Commumities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet.
We have been working with impacted communities since day one.

Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is
to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have
'19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping.

Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and
restaurant owners, helping to make them whole.

More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have
already gone to people affected by the spllII We have committed a
$20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost
incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.

BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism
recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches.

Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams
will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.

And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific
experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.

Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support
over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We
know we haven't always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil
is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do
everything we can to make this right.

The Agency for Pe~r-
sons with Disabilities
met on Tuesday, Aug. 31,
with individuals, their
parents and guardians
to discuss how new I-
budgets for med-waiver
individuals will impact
their funding. The meet-
ing took place at the
Madison Public Library
from 6-8 p.m.
"Obviously, these
are hard economic
times, the budget for the
state of Florida is not in
good shape and there are
19,000 individuals with
severe disabilities on a
waiting list to get ser-
vices," said Tim. Retssler,
executive director of
ARC Madison-Jefferson,
The Agency for Per-
sons with Disabilities
has been working with
customers, family mem-
bers, support coordina-
tors, and providers over
the las oyea t icn atte a

Medicaid waiver system
more flexible. This plan

is called iBudge~t Flori-
da. This past spring, the
Florida Legislature
passed a law to allow the
agency to implement
iBudget Florida.
The iBudget Florida
will eventually replace
the tier waiver system.
It is designed to be sim-
ple, increase customers'
self-direction and help
the waiver system to be
sustainable for future
The Agency for Per-
sons with Disabilities
will begin implement-
ing iBudget Florida in
several counties in
North. Florida that are
located in Area 2. Im-
plementation will first
begin in Madison,
Franklin, Gadsden, Jef-
ferson, Leon, Liberty,
Taylor, and Wakulla

Customers who live
in one of these counties,
will receive their waiver
services through iBud-
get Florida once the sys-
tem is implemented.
The Agency for Persons
with Disabilities must
still receive approval
from the federal govern-
ment before implement-
ing iBudget Florida,
during Fall 2010 or Win-
ter 2011. Customers will
be informed of the exact
date of implementation.
"As one of the first
customers in Florida to
move to the iBudget
Florida system, you will
have a special chance to
help design the new sys-
tem," said director, Jim

Day For Kids Community Celebration

Gives Madison Families Time To Plau


8A Madison County Carrier

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

By M.K. Graves
Greene Publishing Inc.
The Boys and Girls Club of Tabula Rasa and the To-
bacco Free Madison Partnership will be hosting A Day for
Kids Community Celebation onSaturday Sept. 25, from10
a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lanier Field. "It is the day we tell every-
one, 'just play with your kids and have fun,"' said Talinda
Mitchell, area director of the Boys and Girls Clubs' five
school sites. "We want to be the glue that puts the com-
munity together."
In Madison, the free event will introduce the Boys
and Girls Club and their services to families. The group
has just completed their first year in the schools and
they're starting year two. Boys and Girls Club volunteers
are ready to conduct a fantastic Field of Fun with free
bounce houses, relay and sports competitions, ping pong
and a foos ball table for adults and children to learn and
play together. Rounding out A Day for Kids is a sidewalk
chalk art contest, arts and crafts, board games and a dunk-
ing booth, likely to include area site directors. Compli-
mentary hot dogs will be on hand for the celebration.
"We offer area kids ages 5 to 18 a Positive Place to go
after school, where they can grow personally and acade-
mically in a safe and structured environment," said Jen-
nifer Wolf, director of marketing and resource
development at the Boys and Girls Club of Tabula Rasa.

"We do that with caring adults, programs and activities
that provide a compelling alternative to drugs, crime,
gang activity and other negative influences affecting
youth today"
Community booths organized by members of the
Madison County Health Department, Fire Depar~tment
and School Board are also participating.
Boys and Girls Clubs of America celebrate the im-
portance of establishing stronger relationships between
adults and youth by leading the BGC Day for Kids effort.
On Sept. 25, celebrations across the country and even
around the world wil bring adults and children together
to play and learn.
For Madison County this free community-wide cele-
bration geared towards families and children emphasizes
the importance of quality after-school care and reducing
teen substance abuse by building leadership and critical
decision-making skils. The day is expected by organizers
to build and foster community relations.
"Boys and Girls Clubs inspire their members.
Whether encouraging young people to complete their
homework, play sports or recreational activities, enter an
art competition or have a healthy snack, Club staff know
the important role they play in creating the wholesome
environment kids need," said Wolf via email.
A Day for Kids Community Celebration in Madison
wil focus on an important local issue. The tobacco pro-
gram's Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) youth
are going to promote awareness of the issue of candy-f la-
vored tobacco and their plan to propose a policy to restrict
its sale in Madison County
SWAT is a youth empowerment organization that
teaches students planning and organizational skills, as

well as how to speak up and advocate a message. Tobacco
prevention is the message. "When students find out about
the industry of Big Tobacco and how it has lied and ma-
nipulated society all in the name of Big Profits, they tend
to call fowl. They ask, 'If tobacco kills more people
than most of the other causes combined then why is it
even legal?"' said Doug Freer, tobacco prevention special-
ist with the Madison County Health Department.
The message that the program is trying to get out now
is that tobacco companies are manipulating the ingredi-
ents of many products to make them sweeter, more palat-
able and taste like flavors like strawberry grape, pina
colada and chocolate chip cookie dough. They then pack-
age these products in brightly colored packages engi-
neered to attract the attention of youth. Though legally
not allowed to market towards youth, these marketing tac-
tics appear to be aimed at none other than young people.
Big tobacco may also alter the levels of some of the
chemicals in these products to reduce the feeling of sick-
ness that many get during their trial period starting a to-
bacco habit. So ,if the products taste better, are packaged
more attractively and tend to not cause sickness, then
youth are more likely to try them and initiate a tobacco
habit that could last a lifetime, a lifetime that is statisti-
cally shorter than non-tobacco users.
"So, that is why the tobacco program is co-sponsoring
this event, to take advantage of an opportunity to get this
message out to youth and parents," said Freer. "We want
to reduce youth initiation of tobacco use in Madison
County and therefore reduce the impacts of tobacco use in
Madison County"

Twelve people met for their final class on Aug.
25 at thne Madison One Stop at 705 East Base Street.
Most participants were dressed appropriately for a
job interview as requested by their instructor. Dur-
ing the previous weeks, they learned how to write
resumes and cover letters, how to dress for an inter-
view, resources to find job openings and preparation
for a positive job interview.
"Thank you all for coming to these classes. Good
luck to all of you," said Jarrett Jarvis, Madison Cor-
rectional Probation Supervisor. Hre told them he will
post their workshop success when they report to
him. He'11 also continue to alert them to want ads of
interest. In M~adison County, there are 230 people un-

on to say, "While these are Shalonda Brinson
services we provide to all of our jobseeker cus-

address the specific employment barriers these in~
dividuals have in common."
At this final class, Brinson had a surprise: "To-
day we're going to take a 15 question quiz," she said.
The response from the group was at first tentative,
but the questions were very revealing. One question
was, "Which part of the interview is the most im-
portant?" Brinson said the answer is, "the whole
time. Never let your guard down. Expect the unex-
pected in an interview," she said'
Brinson reminded the group that prior to a job
interview, "You should do your homework before-
hand. You don't want to get there the day of the in-
terview to learn about the company. You want to be
prepared," she said.

Upon successful completion of the workshop,
participants receive a Federal Bond Letter, which is

The GFWC Madison Woman's Club President,
Jackie Johnson, welcomed members Sept. 9 after a
summer hiatus and asked that the group pray for
several ill members.
Johnson then honored Dorothy Greene with a
beautiful bouquet of roses to remember her ser-
vice as a veteran in the U.S. Air Force. Captain
Dorothy Greene served as an RN in the Vietnam
War from 1966-1968. Several of Greene's uniforms
were on display with the hero's photograph.
Woman's Club member Jessica Webb dressed
in her 1900s best as she portrayed May Jennings,
who was an influential First Lady of Florida as
the wife of Governor, William Sherman Jennings.
May Jennings fought for many causes, from
children's rights to education, establishing the
State Library of Florida in Tallahassee, keeping
Seminoles from being run off of reservations, and
fence laws to keep animals out of roads. She was a
president of thet Florida Federation of Wometn's
"I want to thank you," said Webb in her dra-
matic portrait of May Jennings. "We all have to
work together to get things done."
Representing the Madison Woman's Club Edu-
cation Department, B.J. Curtis served as program
chairman, as she introduced Jo Curtis, coordina-
tor for the Take Stock in Children program for
Mladison County. Curtis asked several questions
about anyone who had ever helped children living
in poverty to overcome their challenges.
"You, Madison Woman's Club, we honor today
because you have answered the cry of these chil-
dren," said Curtis. Members of the Madison
Woman's Club who are now serving, or who have
served, as mentors in the Take Stock in Children
program were then identified.
"As you came through the front door, you no-
ticed stars with very special names," said Curtis.
She said these people making a big difference as
mentors in the lives of Madison County children
are: Faye Browning, Jean Brandies, Frances Mer-
cer, Ruby Ulm, Sandra Ulm, Helen McCain, Helen
Glenn Bland, Glenda Gordon and Stuart Fen.
nemen. Curtis is also a mentor.
In Madison County, 59 active at-risk or low in-

from high school with TSIC scholarships. The
highest grade point averages are as follows: four
percent of the students have a 4.0 grade point av-

college scholarships. She said Madison County
graduates of Take Stock in Children have already
received 67 scholarships.
On tables at the back of the Madison Woman's
Club, members donated a large number of school
supplies to Take Stock In Children scholarship re-
cipients. B.J. Curtis said she was overwhelmed
and very pleased with the huge response shown by
the club.
The Hostess Committee put together lovely
red schoolhouses on the tables with large red ap-
ples on gold tablecloths. Chairman Faye Brown-
ing, Frances Mercer, Jean McWilliams, Florida

Gains Highest Enrollment For Fall

By M.K. Graves
Greene Publishing Inc.
The Saint Leo University Madison
Offce began the fall1term with its highest
enrollment since opening on the North
Florida Community College campus in
2004. Over 100 students are pursuing de-
grees, compared to 24 students six years
A two-plus-two agreement with
North Florida Community College al-
lows students to complete their freshman
and sophomore years at NFCC and then
transfer to Saint Leo University Madison
Offce to finish their junior and senior
years. Madison students earn degrees in
elementary education, business adminis-
tration, psychology, human services ad-
ministration and new for this semester,
criminal justice.
"Our Bachelor of Arts in Elemen-
tary Education has the highest number of
enrollments," said Christy Roebuck, as-
sistant academic advisor for Business
Administration, Psychology, Criminal
Justice and Human Services. "Second
highest enrollments are for Bachelor
of Arts in Business Administration-
Specialization," she said. Manage-
ment specialization courses teach
students how to manage various types
and sizes of organizations in a global
environment, while gaining insight
into ethical considerations in making
management decisions.
Charles Oden is the director of the
Saint Leo University Madison Offce, Dr.
Brian O'Connell is the assistant profes-
sor of education and the advisor for the
Elementary Education Program. Lisa
Burnham-Robinson is the staff assistant.
With a total enrollment of over 13,000
students, the main Florida campus of
Saint Leo University is situated in the
city of Saint Leo in Pasco County Flori-
da's first Catholic college made its debut
on September 14, 1890. There are now
3,000 students on the main campus. Over
7,000 students study on military bases
and community colleges in seven states,
in addition to 3,000 students enrolled at
the university's Center for Online Learn-
"Each student has an individual ori-
entation into one of the different pro-
grams offered at Saint Leo University's
Madison Offce," said Christy Roebuck,
who recently earned her Masters of Busi-
ness Administration from the college.
"Our goal is to provide one-on-one orien-
tation to each student so that we can an-
swer any questions the student may have
and address individual needs." She said

students can go right into their masters
programs and opportunities exist to
study abroad as well.
The college is a private, non-profit,
Catholic liberal arts university One up-
per division religion course is required in
order to obtain any of the degrees of-
fered, said Roebuck: "You don't have to be
Catholic to take the course." For example,
the course offered may focus on Christian
Morality or the history of Christianity
Roebuck sees quite a few mothers
employed doing shift work that want to
go back to school. They don't know if
they can do it. Roebuck encourages them
because she and her husband, Jimbo Roe-
buck, who works for the Madison Police
Department, have three children and she
was able to complete her MBA in two
"We break it down into eight-week
terms," she said. "A full time student only
takes two courses every eight weeks'
which allows them to fulfill their other
obligations." Roebuck took only one
course every eight weeks.
Students can use Saint Leo Universi-
ty's Daniel A. Cannon Memorial Library,
which reached a milestone this fall with
more than half of its holdings in elec-
tronic form. Electronic holdings number
116,000, while printed and bound volumes
at the main campus are counted at
"Many students have remarked that
the library's electronic and full-text docu-
ments and online professional and re-
search journals are extensive and on-par
with major state universities," said Roe-
buck. A library virtual tour is available at

Branching out in 1973, the armed ser-
vices arranged for Saint Leo University
to offer degree programs on military
bases. Now the college's continuing edu-
cation centers are on over 20 military
bases nationwide, including Florida's
Eglin Air Force Base near Pensacola and
MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.
For military serving in other coun-
tries, Roebuck said, "While they're over-
seas, protecting our freedoms, they have
access to computers, their schoolwork,
and they can get degrees." Saint Leo Uni-
versity is recognized by Military Ad-
vanced Education magazine and GI Jobs
as one of the Top Military-Friendly Col-
leges and Universities.

Garden Club Launches New Season

By M.K. Graves
Greene Publishing, Inc.
With welcoming scarecrows adorning the steps,
the Garden Club began its new season with a splash
of whimsy on Sept. 2 at the Madison Woman's Club
"Welcome, welcome," announced president Dol-
ly Ballard. "Glad to see you. I missed ya!"
She told the 60 guests and members about her
fashion disaster the previous night: not being able
to fit into a snazzy red suit she had chosen for this
first Garden Club meeting.
"I've got three closets of clothes," said Ballard.
"I guess it was so hot this summer they all shrunk."
Ballard said she called Rosie Leggett for fashion ad-
"You're just blossoming," said Leggett.
Ballard wore a lovely flowered blouse with dark
pants and got the meeting rolling by having every-
one hold hands and recite the Lord's Prayer togeth-
er. Chaplain Inda Tinney followed with comments
about a column by Glenn Beck and urged, "If we
don't have the Pledge of Allegiance; if we don't have
the Lord's Prayer; it'll be gone."
This past summer, the Madison Garden Club
sent Abby Blanton, a junior at Madison County
High School, to the Seek Conference, which stands
for Save the Earth's Environnment through Knowol-
edge. The four-day session was held at Wakulla
Springs State Park and 60 high school students from
Locally O~ulned & O~perated

The Garden Club launched a new season Sept. 2. Attending the first meeting are, left to right, Robin Blan-
ton, President Dolly Ballard, and guest speakers Abby Blanton and Teagan Dunn.

across the state attended.
"We went to the St. Mark's National Wildlife
Refuge a lot of people caught crabs and were
pinched, and some caught different kinds of fish,
like a needlefish, which is see-through, it's so
small," said Blanton.
She said highlights of the conference included
seeing all of the wildlife, canoeing, hikes and seeing
disappearing streams at Leon Sinks. She learned
about careers in environmental sciences and con-
servation. The students also visited the Leon Coun-
ty Landfill to hear about solid waste management
The Madison Garden Club also sponsored Tea-
gan Dunn, a seventh-grader at Madison Academy,
who attended Cherry Lake 4-H Camp this summer.
"She really impresses me because she's so enthusi-
astic," said Ballard.
"Thank you so much," said Dunn. "We did lots
of things like kayaking and learning all about na-
ture. Next year I'll be old enough to be a junior coun-
selor." Both students said they would like to return
to the camps next year.
Some of the programs lined up for this year are
Butterflies and Wildflowers, Natural Resource Con-
servation, The Migration of the Whooping Cranes,
Microwave Dried Flowers and Herbs and more.
A Sock Hop and Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser is
scheduled for Jan. 22 with entertainment.
New Garden Club members who joined Sept. 2

were Susan Bembry, Sharon Seir, Glendyle Littleton,
Alice Hammond, Judy Burgmen, Lura Fine and
June Kelly. Guests included Robin and Abby Blan-
ton, Teagan Dunn, Melissa Alford, Susie Stafford
and Sandy Hawkins.
Garden Club members celebrating birthdays
this month are Thelma DeHart, Nell Ring, Sally
Hubbard and Cathy Cooley.
