Frank Ruff, local certi-

a review of his annual Madi-

audit at the school board
meeting on Tuesday, January
Ruff noted that the Madi-
son County Excel School has
improved but. they still had
problems. A year ago, Ruff
refused to comment on that
"I would like to urge
(Principal Maceo Howell) to
call upon the bookkeepers at
Lee Elementary School or
Pinetta Elementary School,
ones with a lot of experience,
to help the Excel bookkeep-
er," Ruff said.
Ruff noted that a lot of
the problem has to do with
duplicate payments. He said
a school board policy re-
quires both the principal and
the secretary to sign all re-
quests. Ruff noted there was
lax control over that.
Ruff said he encountered
someone signing blank
checks and then filling in the

Ruff said things seemed
to be going smoothly at
Madison County Central
School. He noted that there
were too many days between

"It's pretty hazardous
leaving money laying around
a school," Ruff said.
Ruff noted that all the
schools seemed to be doing
well with their budgets.

The Cup Of The Lord Or The Cup Of Demons? A Nose Under The Hand Is A Quest For Affection
"You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the
Lord's table and the table of demons." I Corinthians 10:21 (New King James Version)
Ouch, that verse has some hard preaching, if you really think about it. It's about being dou-
ble-minded, or in. other words, a hypocrite!
I saw a sign recently at the Lee First Baptist Church that said, "When you don't witness, you
just did." I like that thought. It says a lot. When we don't tell people about God, we're really show-
ing them who we do serve.
Allow me to take the thought and add some of my own to it. Sometimes, when we do wit-
ness, we also witness for the wrong person (Satan) by the way we live.
I think of all the times I've been guilty of doing things that don't line up with the word of
God, yet, I tell people about Jesus Christ. I tremble in fear when I think about it and wonder if
I've given them the wrong message by witnessing with my lifestyle.
I don't drink. I don't curse. I don't do drugs. I don't do many of the things the Bible tells me that
I shouldn't do. Still, there are other things that I struggle with. When I'm with a group of friends,
I sometimes get involved in their gossip-or even introduce my own-or I kid around with them in
ways that I know are wrong. There are other things, too. God knows what they are.
It seems sometimes that I've drinking and eating from the Lord's buffet and from Satan's
I want to be able to witness God's saving grace to others, but I don't want to be a hindrance.
I know that amounts to easy preaching and hard living, but there are some verses in the Bible that
are really hard to swallow. They're like a bitter pill, but when they do go down and they put their
healing into effect, it's well worth it!
Pray for me that I will be a help instead of a hindrance to the unsaved around me, so that they
might be saved!

I sat on one end of the sofa, hands on my lap, watching television. The dog lay at the oth-
er end of the sofa, completely still, almost (but not quite) asleep. I moved a little, resting my
left hand on my thigh; the dog's eyes opened. She continued to lie still for about five minutes,
then began a slow creep towards me. No rush, just inching on her stomach across the space
between us. This took a while, since she's a Dachshund and a long one, at that.
Finally she reached the point where her nose pressed gently against my leg, But that was
not her destination. Another inch, and her nose was pushing under my hand. I gave her a
scritch. Then her entire head was on my leg and under that hand. She stopped moving and
sank back into her state of near-oblhi ion.
By this time, I was laughing at her strategy. What a sneaky way of getting a little atten-
tion. We sat that way until the show was over, the dog and I both quite content:
I thought of that moment the other day during a TV commercial. You know the one the
'young child says, "Look at me, Dad." Another one shouts, "Watch me, Daddy." Children beg-
ging for attention from a parent. They do that when they're young; when they're older, they
beg just as strongly. OnNly they do it by smoking or taking up with the wrong friends or sud-
denly bringing home a miserable report card. The parent pays attention then, but sometimes
it is negative, Still, the kid gets the spotlight for a tinie.
We all crave attention and affection from somebody. I told a class a couple of years ago
that we all need seven hugs a day to be'emotionally healthy. I commented that, living alone,
I had a hard time getting that many hugs: Some students decided that they would see to it that
I got hugs every school day, and they kept it up until they graduated. Now others have picked.
u p the thread, and I look forward to those encounters. It really does revive the soul to knot\ a
hug is on the day's agenda. I try to pass the affection along, even if it's just an arm around a
shoulder or a pat on the back.
My father used to love watching baseball and football games on television. His grand-
children, however, had different ideas about what he should do when he made a lap in his big
chair,. "Read, Gafadda," Amy would plead as she held up a Little Golden book to him. He
couldn't resist that childish request; so he would pull her onto her lap and read. Soon Jay, Don,
and any other child in the house would pile onto his lap. They would sit there happily while
he read. The adults in the house would be snickering in the kitchen. Our reason? While he was
Snatching a game, he read about 142 miles an hour with no expression or recognition of peri-
ods. Those kids didn't care, though. They believed they had Grandfather's attention, and theNy
were content. He could have been a reading a book by Steven Hawking: still they would have
listened and loved.
One facet of a genial society is that people don't have to ask. Attention and affection just
flow. The grandfather says, "Come on, y'all. Let's read The Little Engine That Could." The
teacher holds hands with the student as they walk down the hall side by side. The friends open
their arms to hug when they meet.
The human touch holds a prominent position in our personal well-being and the health of
our society. If every person determined to "increase his borders" by giving one additional hug
or loving touch each day, what a different world we would inhabit. Kids wouldn't have to
ask, students wouldn't have to wonder. And dogs? They wouldn't hate to nudge us with their

Reflections From Blue Hollow
Madison County Extension Service
This will be my last column from Blue
Holler. We have several days before we will
leave this home and be in the newer home on
Nob Hill Lane. Knowing how things can
move along and not always follow the path
one has chosen, I am sure hubby will want to
.move a few days faster and I will be without
my computer for awhile.
As I lay in bed this morning, I couldn't
help but think about the big dog that was
barking outside my bedroom window. I won't
miss you at all, you noisy dog. For some rea-
son, this dog seems to think he must bark for
at least 2 hours every single morning after his
'master has left for work. This is usually while
it is still dark. I can only say thankfully this
dog's bark is low and deep sounding. If it was
one of the. yippy little dogs up from us, I
would be very disturbed.
So, as Mr. Dog's bark is annoying to a de-
gree, I won't miss him at all.
I have always loved animals, especially
dogs and cats, however, as the years have
passed, I prefer cats. We only have one as of
now. She is Miss Kitty, and is a great com-
Not only is she playful and has her funny
antics that make us laugh, but she is good,
and is no trouble to take care of at.all. She has
only one fault and I guess that is my doing. I
happened to buy her some kitty treats one day
at the grocery store. Well, she is indeed ad-
dicted to those kitty treats now. She even
knows when I have brought home the wrong
brand. She definitely has her preference of
which kind of kitty treat she likes the best.
I do try to spread them out throughout the
day, but she seems to think I should give her
some each and every time I pass through the'
kitchen. I have learned she is happy if I only
give her one or two. So, on the days that she
is really treat happy, this is what I do. If need-
ed, I like the fact that we can leave her alone
for a couple days if we need to. We haven't
had to very often, but I never worry about her
as she is content to sleep on her blanket on the
couch, play with some of her toy mice, watch
the birdies outside the windows and just take
care of her food, water and other duties in the
She used to be an outdoor cat when we
lived in Madison. But, after our move to the
mountains, we have kept her inside. She has
adapted very well, and seems to rather enjoy
her indoor life. She has put on some weight as
she doesn't get to run around as much as she
used to outside. However, funny as she is, she
has devised some games for herself to make
sure she gets in her daily exercise.
One being she loves to take a flying run
throughout the house on the spur of the mo-.
ment. Just all of a sudden, she will start rac-
ing throughout the house,; in and out of
rooms, and when she hits the kitchen, wham,
look out. The kitchen has tile on the floor.
When she hits the kitchen, sometimes she will
be going so fast, her feet will just about come
out from beneath her. Many a time has she
tried to stop and sort of slide around the
kitchen and land into another room. However,
most times, I will hear her body bump into
one of the cabinets.
I keep wondering how in the world does
she keep from hurting herself? So far, she,
hasn't and seems to have it all under control.
She is funny to watch and seems to be happy
with herself that.she can do this and hate fun
at the same time.
She has very good manners. She doesn't
jump on the table; she doesn't jump on the
kitchen counters. I think she knows her mama
would smack her silly if she did. She does
love to get on my sewing table and lie in be-
hind %%here I sew. The sun shines on a certain
spot and I am sure she enjoys the warmth, es-
pecially this time of year.
By the way. our really cold weather is
back with us.......brrrrrrrrr. Snow is predicted
for this weekend: Mambe the snow will hold
off until we get everything moved.
In the meantime, I will be back soon, I
hope you will keep smiling....... e4ydet.O
Easy Ways To Eat 100
Now that the holidays are over, most of us
make that News Year's resoltuion to drop a few
pounds and get fit. Sometimes, we are too hard
on ourselves when we're trying to lose weight.
We eat some pretty awful tasting foods, forgo
getting together with friends if food is involved,
or take the joy out of eating through a monoto-
nous and limited diet.
As a general rule, it is better to aim for a
gradual weight loss, of no more than 1 to 2.
pounds per week. Sometimes all it takes is mod-
ifying your current eating habits. Alice Henne-
man, R.D., Extension Nutrition Specialist at the
University of Nebraska recently shared a few
strategies for easy changes that will reduce your
daily caloric intake without starving. Each,
change will save you about 100 calories. Modify
your milk Instead of drinking two cups of
whole milk, switch to two cups of 1% lowfat
milk or skim milk. The nutrient- are comparable.
but you are saving calories.
Rethink your drink Drink a diet soda in-
stead of a regular soft drink and save 150 calo-
ries. A better option yet, is to drink water.
Dress, don't drown your salad If you've
been using 3 or more tablespoons of dressing, try
cutting back to 1 tablespoon of dressing or less.
Or experiment with some of the reduced calorie
versions even then, your salad will taste best if
"dressed" not "dro%% ned".
Watch your bread and spread Limit the
Less Calories Per Day
amount of bread and spread eaten before the
main course to one serving when dining out. You
always can eat more later if you're still hungry.
Count your cookies A single medium
sized cookie easily can have about 100 calories.
Often we pop two or more into our mouths be-
fore we realize it. If you feel you're not getting
enough "crunch" by limiting yourself to one
cookie, try eating an apple instead the calories
are similar and you are getting more nutrients.
Be size-wise with fast food Calories
from fast foods add up quickly. If you are eating
fast food, change a few of your ordering strate-
gies. Skip the mayonnaise, order the smallest
size of fries and split them with a friend. Instead
of fries, consider a side salad with a fat-free or re-
duced calorie dressing. It's still important to
check the calories on the salad dressing.
All of these strategies will help reduce your
total caloric intake for the day. If you continue to
use these practices you will begin to experience
weight loss without feeling hungry all day long.

There was a time not
long ago that I felt sorry for
Rebekah and myself I was
mad at God for a really long
time. God has done some real-
ly amazing things in His chil-

to fix this to heal her. It
wasn't until I began to
thank Him and praise Him
for the gift that He had
r already given me in
, Rebekah that I began to
see the healing take place.
Rebekah didn't need
fixing. She is God's child
and is perfect in His love.
It was me. It was my
heart that needed healing.
Rebekah, without say-
ing a word, has touched
and changed so many
. lives. IVith all that we
have and know to do, will
we be able to come close?
God has a purpose for
all of us. I believe Rebekah is
fulfilling hers really well.

Middle School Students
By Jacob Bembry
Three Branford Middle School students have killed them-
selves in the last three months.
All three of the students were found hanging inside their
homes by other family members. Two of the deaths occurred in
November and a third happened just last week in the tiny
Suwannee County town of 700 people. The third boy was only
12 years old.
School officials are bringing in counselors to help students
deal with the deaths.
Inm estigiaors are looking into the chance that the deaths ma)
have been accidental, instead of intentional suicides.

seems there's nothing moving. Life seems to be at a standstill.
However, spring will come. New life will sweep over the land. T

This is the promise of Jesus Christ. With His birth, life and death,

ties should contact a crop in-
surance agent to see if a crop
is insurable in, a specific

vice Agency office (850-

on %% whether a crop is eligible.
An eligible natural dis-
aster must occur before or

rectly affect the crop. The

Jan. 10, officers were engaged in two separate search and res-
cue operations. U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) requested assistance with
one overdue boater out of Cedar Key with two people on board, and
another overdue vessel out of the Barge Canal with four people on
board. The weather conditions included heavy fog throughout the
day. Visibility was minimal inshore and practically zero offshore.
The Guardian crew located the vessel out of Cedar Key, with all oc-
cupants safe. The pilot was contacted for assistance with the other
vessel, to search the coastal areas. About 4 p.m., the subjects were
located off the Wacasassa River. A nearby fisherman towed the ves-
sel into Wacasassa. All occupants of the vessel were safe. FWC as-
sets included five officers, three lieutenants, the Guardian, two pa-
trol boats, and the pilot of the regional helicopter.
Jan. 9, Lt. Knowles responded to a complaint of trespass hunt-
ing in the Clay Hill area. Upon Knowles' arrival, the property own-
er had collected four dogs that were pursuing wildlife on his prop-
erty without permission. The owner of one of the dogs was present,
but was not allowed to retrieve his dog until the officer's arrival. In-
vestigation revealed the property owner had hnot sufficiently posted
or fenced his property thereby causing some confusion between the
hunters who had leased the adjacent property. After resolving the
tension between the property owner and -the hunters, Knowles is-
sued the dog owner two warnings. As the hunters departed, a 19-
year-old Middleburg man arrived and claimed ownership of the re-
maining three dogs. Knowles discovered the dog owner did not have
two of his dogs marked with his name and other required informa-
tion. Knowles cited the subject with failure to properly mark the
dog's collars with current owner's information.

sion of undersized black drum and littering.
Officer Arlo Rissman was working night hunting in Hamilton
County near the Georgia state line early morning Jan. 8 when he saw
a light working from a vehicle. Inside the vehicle were two adults,
one juvenile, a 7mm-08 rifle and spotlight. Rissman issued the two
adults citations for 372.99 violations and a warning to the juvenile
for the same offense. The firearm and light were seized as evidence.
Jan. 8, Officer Kevin Hansen was contacted by the manager of

Canadian Man Chokes
Son's Soccer Coach
A Canadian man, upset that his 9-year-old son was benched
during a hockey game, allegedly choked the team's coach in a
fit of rage, Toronto police said on Monday.
d The father, who cannot be identified
due to a publication ban, allegedly
| .. reached over a partition to grab the
coach after the boy was kept on the
bench during Sunday's game.
S"Se' eral attempts were made by wit-
n esse.s to stop the attack but they were
S unable to before the victim collapsed to
the floor," Toronto police said in a re-
lease on Monday.
The incident comes on the heels of several other reports of
parents' misbehavior at their, children's hockey games. The
mother of an 11-year-old was banned from Toronto-area arenas
in 2004 after exposing her bra and shaking her breasts in an ap-
parent attempt to intimidate the opposing team.
The father appeared in court on Monday on a charge of
choking. Newspaper reports said the coach finished the game
after the incident and did not appear to have sustained serious
WD-40 Helps Keep,
Snorting Cocaine Down
Apparently, cocaine and spray lube don't mix.
"A chemical reaction takes place with the cocaine that caus-
es it to congeal and become a mess so it's unusable," a police
spokesman said. "It's one very small, very cheap way in which
you can very seriously restrict the amount of drug use in your
Constable Graham Pease, a liquor licensing officer, said he
discovered the trick a few years ago while discussing with pub
owners how to reduce drug use on their premises.
"We were discussing with licensees how we could keep co-
caine from being snorted from surfaces," he told Reuters. "It
came about that we wanted to spray something on surfaces that
cocaine would stick to. And somebody mentioned WD-40."
The new use seems to have taken its makers by surprise.
"Its not meant to be ingested. It says so clearly on the can
so we wouldn't advocate it for that purpose. But people will use
it how they will," said a British spokeswoman for the San
Diego, Calif-based WD-40.
At Bar Excellence in Bristol, deputy manager, Julian Bar-
raud, said it was-part of the drug fighting arsenal.
"It does work. It's one of the tricks that we've got to try and
tackle the problem," he said.

Found In Virginia
Authorities in Virginia found two young children whose
parents allegedly kidnapped them at. gunpoint from a foster
home in North Carolina, police said.
Grayson County Sheriff Jerry D. Wilson said the children
"and some adults" were located Wednesday in this rural moun-
tainous area near North Carolina and Tennessee. A tip from
North Carolina authorities who joined sheriff's deputies at the
scene led them to the children.
Details were not immediately avail-
able. Wilson said he had little informa-
tion because he had limited radio con-
tact with his deputies. "You've got to
see "\ here this is at," he said. "We're in
the mountains. We're not in the city."
Amber Alert was issued Saturday for
James Paul Chambers, 2, and his sister,
Breanna, 11 months.
North Carolina authorities said the children, were taken
from a foster home in Watauga County, N.C., early Saturday by
their father, James Lee Canter, 28, a fugitive charged with a
drug-related crime, and their mother, Alisha Chambers, 18.
James Lee Canter brandished a gun, they said.
That day, the couple were seen in Johnson County, Tenn.,
but only their car, containing a rifle and a handgun, was found,
Watauga Count) Sheriff Mark Shook said.
The county social services agency took custody of the chil-
dren after a raid last March on the couple's home, w here au-

Since then, Canter has been a fugiu\e. Chambers, charged
with manufacturing meth and maintaining a dwelling for its
manufacture, was arrested and posted bail.

Stop Inaugural Prayers
chief" Jtice~ William Rehn'quist rejected W\ednesday an
emergency request-from a California atheist \\ ho sought to stop
the recital of prayers at President Bush's inauguration.
A federal judge and a U.S. appeals court earlier ruled
against atheist Michael NewdowN. He is best known for trNing
unsuccessfully\ to remove the phrase "'under God" from the
Pledge of Allegiance that millions of U.S. schoolchildren recite
Newdow, a doctor-lawyer who is acting as his ow n attorneN
in the case. argued that clergy-led prayers at the inauguration
Thursday would %iolate his constituuonal nights.
"As an atheist, he cannot in good conscience attend an e\-
ercise t here his government forces him to endure religious dog-
ma he finds highly disagreeable," Ne\ do\\w wrote in his motion
filed with the Supreme Court. "Newdow\'s rights of religious
freedom should be protected."
Newdow., "ho lives in Sacramento. California. said he
would drop his plans to attend the inauguration if forced to con-
front the prayers by two Christian ministers.

Newdow also had suggested that Rehnquist, who plans to
administer the oath of office to Bush at the inauguration, remove
himself from considering his request.
He said Rehnquist took part in the 2001 inauguration when
prayers were included. In seeking Rehnquist's recusal, Newdow
said the chief justice would feel "awkward" at the ceremony if
he ruled in Newdow's favor.
That's Not Gunfire -
That's A House
A cold spell gripping Ottawa is so intense that houses have
started to produce loud cracking noises, prompting worried cit-
izens to report burglaries and gunfire, local police said Wednes-
Spokeswoman Monique Ackland said police had received
around 20 calls Monday night and Tuesday morning, when tem-
peratures in the Canadian capital dipped to an unseasonably low
minus 40 Celsius (minus 40 Fahrenheit).
"Those were calls about breaking and entering, people mak-,
ing excessive noise and calls about gunshots," she said. Police
responded to each alarm and rapidly realized crime was not re-
"Those calls were all (prompted by) the cold," she said,
adding that one possible reason for the loud noises were ex-
"Jury Pool From Hell"
Defense attorney Leslie Ballin called it the "jury pool from
hell." The group of prospective jurors was summoned to listen
to a case of Tennessee trailer park violence. Right after jury se-
lection began last week, one man got up and left, announcing,
"r'Tm on morphine and I'm higher than a kite."
When the prosecutor asked if anyone had beenconvicted of
a crime, a prospective juror said that he had been arrested and
taken to a mental hospital after he almost shot his nephew. He
said he was pro oked because his
nephew just would not come out
from under the bed.
Another would-be juror said he
had had alcohol problems and was
arrested for soliciting sex from an
undercover officer. "I should have
known something was up," he said.
"She had all her teeth."
Another prospect volunteered
he probably should not be on the jury: "In my neighborhood,
everyone knows that if you get Mr. Ballin (as your la%\Ner).
you're probably guilty." He was not chosen.
The case involved a woman accused of hitting her brother's
girlfriend in the face with a brick. Ballin's client was found not

Cuitlah\ ac Renteria-Martinez. 26, was arrested for investi-
