Questions About Terri Schiavo A I9(hc[y ff Jf, e4 ta Jyeff


Terri Schiavo died last week after being
starved and dehydrated for 13 days. In spite of
what the national press, politicians or courts
may have led anyone to believe, she did not
die a death free from pain. They did not sim-
ply pull a plug and she stopped breathing. She
didn't have anything to eat or drink for 13
days. Can you imagine not having a drop of
water for 13 days? I have some questions that
I would like to ask a few people about her
death. The following is a list of those whom I
would like to question and the questions that I
would like to ask them.
Michael Schiavo: When Terri collapsed
years ago, you were allegedly CPR certified,
but you didn't attempt to revive Terri. Why?
You could have saved yourself and Terri a
lifetime of heartache. When you won the mul-
ti-million dollar judgment against Terri's doc-
tors for malpractice, you allegedly said thht
you would need the money to take care of Ter-
ri for the rest of her life. What happened to the
money? Five years later, all of a sudden, you
"remembered" that Terri had told you that she
hadn't wanted to be kept alive if she got to
where she couldn't take care of herself. Why
did you. "remember" then? What is going to
happen with the money from Terri's life insur-
ance policy? Why couldn't you allow Terri's
parents to have her, body after she died?
Couldn't you even give them the comfort of
visiting their daughter's grave to express their


gnert
Judge Greer: I don't know you, but how
could you continually decide not to listen to
Terri's parents? Couldn't you at least have
given them a chance?
U.S. Supreme Court: You went against the
will of the President and the U.S. Congress by
refusing to hear Terri'scase based on the new
law that Congress had passed and the Presi-
dent had signed. Why?
State Sen. Nancy Argenziano: How could
you vote to not have Terri's feeding tube rein-
serted? Is this a political move on your part?
Are you pandering 'to the multitude who be-
lieve it's more humane to starve a person to
death? What if it was a dog that was slowly
being starved to death? How would you vote?
You're supposed to represent part of Madison
County and its wishes. I don't believe the ma-
jority of people in Madison %wanted to see a
woman die of huilger and thirst.
I don't believe that I will hear from any-,
one on this list, unless Argenziano replies,, but
I would like to ask them these. questions.
There are two more people that I would like to
leave a comment for.
Bob and Mary Schindler: I knot that \ou
loved your daughter and N\ou fought valiantly
to save her life. While I believe that people are
saved by faith and not by their good works. I
do believe that God honors sood %\orks and
that yours were some of the best. Thank you!


I bought myself .a birthday. present. I have
no spouse or sweetheart to ply me with expen-
sive gifts and trifles, so I must do whatever ply-
ing takes place. And I did.
In years past, I have gifted me with a pair
of pricey red leather Western boots complete
with fringe, some expensive shoes, and a trip,
among other wishes-come-true. This year,
however, the wish had some practical basis. I
bought myself a car.
A used car, of course. If I can avoid it, I
will never again shell out that new-car down
payment. I shopped the lots here in Madison
until I located a '97 Camry with reasonable.
miles and tinted windows. Did the bank busi-
ness, walked back on the lot, and whoopee!
- the car is mine.
The Camry was actually a pre-birthday
gift. (The big da\ is tomorrow. April 9; I'll be
63.) I needed reliable %\ heels for my drive to St.
Simons Island for the first 'weekend of Spring
Break, then for jauntering around in Jack-
sonville during the week. In all of that travel-
ing, I used less than $40 "worth of gas, even
considering the rising pump prices. I stood in
awe and amazement when I arrived back home
with two-thirds of a tank still to be burned. Am
I a happy, camper or m hat?
Another neat feature of this silvery, pale-
green auto is that it already has a dent. You
know how% terrible you feel when you put the
first ding in a new car? Well, I'm avoiding that


emotional war zone; I already have the crunch
in the right rear fender.
The interior is done up in gray. Not being
heavily into gray, I had to take :drastic steps.
You've seen designs with those amusing, col-
orful tree frogs climbing reedy stalks? Well,
now those frogs (on black velvet) cover my dri-
ver's seat, my steering wheel, and the neck pro-
tectors on both front seat belts. I'll probably
break down and get a cover for the passenger
seat, too. Now the interior is snazzier, which'
suits me to a tee.
When parking. I must remember that the
Camry has a nose. The Dodge Caravan didn't,
so I could pull up to places fairly closely. I also
must remember that the Camry's gearshift is on
the floor, while the van's is on the wheel. Dif-
ferent locations for windshield wiper wand and
lights, too. All those changes keep me mental-
ly alert, at least.
For a while, I'll sing "Happy birthday to
me, happy birthday to me" as I spool around
town. This is, after all, one of the best birthday
presents I've given myself in, 15 years of sin-
gle-hood. My intention is. that it will last a
while.
I hope your birthday presents are as great
as mine. If not, contact me and we'll see what
we can do to jazz up your life. You get only one
birthday per year. Make it count. I did.
"Happy birthday, dear Ginger, happy birth-
day to me.'.'

mission had asked the MCDC to help by selecting from five-
seven applicants. Council members looked at resumes and ap-
plications and made the cut to six.
The six who will be invited for interviews are: Keith R. Ash-
by, Waterloo, NY; Ralph 0O Bowers, Jasper; Peter S. Herbert,
Vernon; Elly F. Johnson, Southport, NC; Hugh J. King, Duluth,
GA; and Joseph S. Miranti, Saint Cloud,.
The original list of 21 included nine from Madison County
and a total of 16 from Florida. Twenty applicants were male. The
newspaper advertisement making people aware of the position
stated that the salary would be "negotiable." C o m m i s -
sioners decided to offer between $45,000 and $55,000 for the
position.
Commissioners continued their usual discussion of roads
and the work needed to improve them. One million, two-hun-
dred thousand dollars will be spent to begin paving work on six
county roads. The first roads to have work done will be NE Del-
phinum Drive, NE Beulah Church Road, SE Farm Road, SW
Fellowship Road, NW Honey Lake Road, SW Odena Trail.
In other action, the board approved a resolution adopting the
revised Local Mitigation Strategy Plan. Lee and Greenville have
agreed to the plan and it will be presented to the City of Madi-
son next week.
The board will continue a discussion at a later date about
employee group medical insurance. They also will discussion
the Ag Facility Building lease at the next meeting.

the long-standing problems do not appear to be getting solved
and there are dangerous situations such as possible electric
shocks with water rising up to appliances. Council members
agreed to continue efforts to solve flooding problems.
In another matter, resident Barbara Anderson expressed
concerns about the possible location of a game room near her
home. The Boom Boom Room was recently damaged by fire
and business owners want to reopen it'at another location. Offi-
cials checked on zoning regulations and were to continue to
study the matter.
Anderson did not want the business in her area.
"We don't need a place like that in our neighborhood,. If
-you want to put a church there, that is good." she said.
In other action, the council discussed the April 29 dedication
ceremony for the public works building and the w after plant. Lo-
cal and state officials as well as the public will be invited.
Council members agreed to proceed with the proposed
bronze statue of Ray Charles and understood the project will
take about a year to complete. The life-sized starue of Charles
will be provided at no cost to the to% n, but Greenm ille will be
asked to obtain a base on which to place the sculpture.
The piece of property, where Charles spent part of his youth
is being offered to the town for a small amount of money. The
owner will sign over title to the old house and land if Greenville
"ays the legal costs to transfer.
Council also increased cemetery lot prices from $100 to.
$250.

"Well, we actually already\ got the new\ equipment," said
Hospital Administrator Bob Pugh. The hospital has had a new
CT scanner for about a year. and a newN X-ray machine sinceAu-
gust.
"We requested state funding to set off the cost," Pugh said.
The hospital used its operating funds and:a $246.000 federal
grant to buy the equipment and renovate, Pugh said.
"If the state gives Madison County the money it has re-
quested, it will go back into the hospital's operating funds.
Every hospital needs a certain amount of funds in order to oper-
ate," Pugh said.
"A45-bed hospital needs at least a half million dollars in the
bank," he said. "You have to wait on Medicaid, Medicare and
private pay to come through." Operating funds are held in an ac-
count to keep the hospital running until those funds come
through.
It's too early to tell if the Legislature will fund Madison
County Memorial Hospital's request for $312,909..Rep. Will
Kendrick, D-Carrabelle. said legislators would know 6 nore
about the status of budget requests in April. The Regular Ses-
sion of the Legislature is scheduled to end Ma\ 6.

place about the Emergency Management request to install an an-

stating the exact conditions under which the antenna would be

the equipment installed and maintained.


Easing The Stress

It is said that Abraham Lincoln wrote the Gettysburg Ad-
dress on an old envelope while traveling by train. He was on his
way to the dedication ceremony for the national cemetery and
had been asked to speak there, so he jotted down some thoughts.
I mention this so readers will understand that the following' mus-
ings were originally penned on napkins obtained from a fast-
food place. I won't say the name, but the eatery sells good foot-
long chili dogs and its initials are D. Q. and it is located on High-
way 19 in Citrus County, Florida.
I was on my way down the highway when these ideas came
to mind. I do some of my most profound thinking while behind
the wheel. It is my intention to preserve these paper napkins and
perhaps donate them to the Smithsonian.
I have often visited the world's favorite vacation destina-
tion, Disney World. Have enjoyed my visits. I have nothing
against Donald Duck or Goofy. I even like the Seven Dwarfs and
Dumbo and the Small World.
It is interesting to study people during their Disney Experi-
ence. Children know they are supposed to have fun. Adults are
usually stressed out. They have driven great distances or perhaps
come by plane and rented a car. They have paid a high entrance
fee, squeezed.into a plain vanilla motel room, and paid more for
French fries and a burger than they normally spend for a week's
groceries. It is hurry up and have fun, move to the next long line,
enjoy.
On several other occasions, I have also been to Colonial
Williamsburg in Virginia. Families also go there for vacations.
But the pace is different. They enter the Eighteenth Century and
move to a different measure. The fastest ride is a horse-drawn
carriage and the most exciting thing to do is take part in the
colonial military drills. The big daily event is the afternoon pa-
rade of the fife and drum corps.
Is it the different time, the different century, that sets the
pace? It may be. Modern life is hectic, and modernr" entertain-
ment is also fast-paced. The stroll down Duke of Gloucester
Street is definitely different than the mob-fighting on the
, Mouse's Main Street. .
But must we go back 200 years to conquer stress? Can we
surie work and vacations in a big city? I have been to Ne"t
York. Washington. Dallas, New% Orleans. Atlanta. Philadelphia.
Miami. Chicago. Orlando. Tampa. Charlotte. Mexico Cit). and a
few others. There is noise and there are crowds. ,
But no. stress is not determined by traffic and crowds and
hectic life and broken dow n cars and \elling cab drivers and ca-
ble TV repairmen %\ho know.less than Ido. Or it should not bei
Or our reaction to stressful times should be better.
Jesus could have yieid to[i s'ss'but did nor. He slept dur-
ing a storm. was patient with slow-learning followers. He told
us to "chill-out." too. If it could not be done. He %would not have
said to do it.
"Let not you heart be troubled." and "'Come unto me, all you
who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest."
Can e remain calm during the stressful times of life? Can
we calm ourselves and control our blood pressure? A massage.
soak in the cub, refreshing glass of iced tea with lemon, can help.
But we must call on the One who knows us best. We can actual-
ly rest in Him.
It is time to relax.

PowerPay Your Way To
Y *

A Better Financial Future
Want to drastically reduce your debt load by the end of
2005? It is possible because you alone have the power to con-
trol your spending, saving and use of credit. If you need a plan
to fojlow, the University of Florida Extension is offering a free
debt reduction program called Pox\erPay.
PowerPay can map out a month-by-month plan where you
can pay off what you owe faster without paying any more than
you are currently paying monthly toward debt repayment. It is
a free, confidential service' based on a simple principle that
works. As soon as one debt is paid off, you apply that monthly
payment to the next debt. When the second is paid off, both
monthly payments are applied to the third debt. By the time you
ha% e paid off a few creditors, large monthly payments are being
applied to the remaining debts. The total monthly debt payment
is not increased, only the distribution of payments changes.
By adding the amount of the payment of one debt to the
next, you save both time and interest costs. Saving time means
that you can pay off your consumer debts much quicker. If you
\ ant to apply for a mortgage or just want to get out of debt, the
PowerPay method will get you out of debt sooner. An added
benefit is that you will also pay less in interest charges.
So, let's get down to the bottom line. How much does the
computer analysis cost and what's in it for you? First of all, the
cost is nothing. It's free of charge. Second, there are several
benefits:
An up-close and personal look at all your debt. Each pay-
ment is listed.
A plan to shorten the amount of time needed to repay debt.
A re-distribution of your existing debt payments instead of
paying more monthly.
A reduction of interest costs, often thousands of dollars.
Why not give it a try. Call theExtension office at 973-4138
and request a worksheet to complete a free confidential Power-
Pay analysis.

raised the most money in the school by bringing in $300 in pennies. Cindy Thomas (not pic-

The mythical Scottish village of Brigadoon springs to life
every 100 years and, like Brigadoon, the tiny town of Lee
springs to life each year as Lee Day fills the air with a parade,
music, clowns, food and so much more.
The brainchild of Thelma Thompson, who served as this
year's Citizen of the Year, Lee Day has been celebrated for the
past 17 years. Thompson is credited with coming up with the
novel concept of having a celebration each year in Florida's
smallest incorporated town, which proudly bears the motto,
"Lee, Little But Proud." The "Little But Proud" motto was giv-
en to it after Louis DeMotsis, who was mayor of Lee at the time,
had given an interview to the Florida Times- Union and he was
quoted as saying "Lee is little but proud."
The celebration began the night before as people crowded
into the fellowship hall at Lee United Methodist Church for a
Lee School Alumni Reunion dinner. Danny Terrill catered the
dinner.
The Methodist Church was also the host for a pancake
breakfast from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. the next morning.
At 10 a.m., the parade made its way through sunny and
windy downtown Lee. Wilma Dickey was the parade's grand
marshal. A longtime Lee resident, Dickey was born in Siam
(which is now Thailand), then moved to China at age two with
her missionary parents. While a missionary to the Philippines
during World War II, she became a P.O.W. and was held by the
Japanese for three years, one month, one week and one day. She
married her husband, the late Carroll Dickey, while she was a
P.O.W.
The Nestl6 Waters float won the award for the parade's best
entry.
Following the parade, the opening ceremonies were held.
Dickey and Thompson were recognized, along with Founding
Forefather, James "Jimbo" Bell and Honorary Miss Lee,
Marintha Howard.
Married to the former Ila Belle Williams, Bell is- retired
from the United States Air Force as an E-7 Master Sergeant. He
is the owner of James A. Bell Used Cars in Lee.
The 94-year-old Howard is a former educator, who orga-
nized the school lunch programs at Lee and Enterprise schools.
Howard said that, in addition to her devotion to her family, her
devotion to her faith is important.
Lee's beauty queens and kings were recognized from the
oldest to the youngest.
A group of students from Lee Elementary School and
Corinth Christian Academy sang "This Land is Your Land,"
echoing the theme for Lee Day 2005: "This Land is Our Land."
Rep. Will Kendrick (D-Carrabelle) made some opening re-
marks.
Danny Bembry sang "He's In the Midst" to close out the
opening' ceremonies., which were capably handled by Jeff Bai-
ley, the Master of Ceremonies, land Lee Mayor Ernestine Kinsey.
Live entertainment was held throughout the day, with Coo
Coo the Clown delighting children. Darrell Meadows provided
a country twang to the entertainment, as did Randy and the
Honky Tonks. Radio Active Material (RAM) provided music for
the younger crowd and Robert McColskey delighted folks as he
played music on instruments that he had made himself.
Proud pet owners showed off their pooches and other 'ani-
mals during a pet show at 1 p.m.
Vendors sold everything from homemade arts and crafts to
woodworks to delicious food. The Hickory Grove Baptist
Church's Relay for Life team had sold all of their chicken pilau
by noon.
A great time was had by all who attended Lee Day 2005.


No parade is complete without the local beauty queens.

Miss Madison County. (Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by

Hear ye, Hear ye!


The United States vs. United Nations


is now in session.


How does UN policy affect Americans?

Is UN membership incompatible with ourf
form of government?

Do our UN "commitments" endanger
America?

Is the UN merely a forum for diplomats
Sand a conduit for humanitarian aid?

Is the UN still "mankind's last best hope
for 00peace"?

What will happen if the UN becomes
what its founders intended?


You be the judge as these and other critical
issues are weighed in United States vs.
United Nations. Examine the evidence and
.decide for yourself. And discover why your
decision is so important!

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is
from above and we are to receive with meek-
ness the engrafted word which is able to save
our souls." Strange, we thought, when Daddy
quoted James 1:2 "...count it all joy when ye
fall into divers temptations"...and when he'd
say about Nancy (our middle girl, gone eleven
years now) James 1:22-23 how she liked look-
ing at herself in the mirror and forgetting how
she looked would look again.
Such gorgeous delicate pink arrangement
by Bunnie and Ernest Page in loving memory
of their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest M. Page,
Sr. and Mr. and Mrs. William R. Boswell.
Such a touching prayer by Ed Meggs,
song by Amy Robinson, our Natalie's favorite
song, "Victory in Jesus." "When WE See the
Lamb" by Chancel Choir and then a Spirit
filled message as Preacher preached from Col.
3:1-4 about praying, doing, rejoicing, and not
being fearful.
Death. has come among us very often
these days. We know Death is part of Life and
all in God's Time, nevertheless we are sad.
Please remember all the family of Winifred
Cherry (such a special person); all the family,
of Mary Weger (also a very special person
who knew she was going and knew where she
was going and she'll be greatly missed in
church and everywhere); all the family of Nell
Dickinson sorryy not to have known her); Lit-
tle Miss Kerri Underhill and all the sorrow


and heartache in her family; for Ricky Myers
family (he had a quiet gentle spirit and
touched many lives).
Had a good though brief visit at Lake Park
Nursing Home Monday with several; Buford
Selman, A. J. Hudson, A. J. Gay, Ethel Clark,
Carl Rushing, Jr., Merton Morse, Dennett
Cruce's mother, Shelton Williams and met
some new ones. What a blessing to visit.
Let's pray earnestly for them and all those in
other nursing homes and homebound. Debbie
Bass asked us to especially pray for Melodie
Faust; pray for Suzanne Peavy's Betsy's little
daughter; Mildred Burner desires our prayers
for her brother, James Smith, who is desper-
ately ill at Emory. Pray for Mr. and Mrs. Ul-
rey (saw them at the doctor's Tuesday); Lee
Gordon's brother J. R. in rehab; Carl and Ed-
die Bevis; Art Duran; Shellie Rutherford; and
Louise Bland.
Happy to see Gail and Al Spurlock in
church (though he's not so good yet, and Car-
roll Lamb with Sam and several of their fami-
ly as they've come to see about their moth-
er/grandmother.) Sam and Evelyn are always
blessed as the family always comes to church
when they're home. All of us are blessed to
have loved ones home and in church.
Tuesday BWA n'iet at 6:30, Thursday; Se-
nior Adult Choir met at Madison Nursing; to-
day and tomorrow there's to be a WMU
Prayer Retreat at Pickett Lake with Linda
Miniard speaking.
Lord bless us one and all. Amen!

> The Spirit
By Vicki Howerton
Horray! Spring has finally arrived in beautiful Madison,
Florida! Azaleas are "decked out" in a brilliant display of col-
or: the dogwoods are magnificent, bright sunny days are back,
and baseball has even begun! Spring really is wonderful! Futher-
more, we are all still celebrating the afterglow of a truly delight-
ful Easter season.
Another reason to smile is that many very special activities
are being planned for the youth of our Church for both spring
and summer. They will leave on April 22, 2005, for the Interna-
tionally acclaimed "Acquire the Fire" event which will be held
in Tampa, Florida. Thousands of youth have heard the gospel of
Christ and have fellowshipped with youth from all over the
country at these awesome gatherings. We are grateful for our
youth being able to participate in this incredible and inspiring
event. If you would like to go, please contact our Youth Pastor,
Rev. Brian Sanderson, at our church today.
Our youth will be spending the week of June 13th at sum-
mer camp at Leesburg, Florida. They look forward to this each
summer! If you would like to go with the large group, please see
Pastor Brian as soon as possible! It is filling up very fast!
The Keenaagers are planning a frolicking picnic on beauti-
ful Cherry Lake on April 21, 2005. Please contact Ruth and Jim-
my Hardee if you would like to be part of this grand party right
on the prettiest lake in our county.
Our own Suzanne Griffin, who is our Teacher of the Year at
Madison Central School, has a special request: She has inspired
and helped her Language Arts and Journalism classes to prepare
"goodie boxes" for our soldiers who are serving in Iraq. How-
ever, they need us to donate the money for these special boxes
of love to be delivered to our soldiers. You can get your dona-
tion to Suzanne many ways: Please mark your donation and drop
it in the offering. You may also call her at home (973.8425) or
call her at the school. The number at Madison Central is
973.5192 (ext. 201.) We are invited to help see that these gifts of
caring and appreciation are sent to Iraq very soon. The money
for the shipping expenses will be greatly appreciated-not only be
Suzanne and her students, but by our deserving soldiers as well.
The United Methodist Men will meet April 17, 2005, in our
Fellowship Hall, and they invite every man in Madison County
to come and join them for this gathering. The down-home break-
fast cooking here would be very hard to top. They also have
great programs brimming with the best fellowship and a great
measure of fun and laughter (ALWAYS ) sprinkled in.
Reverend Lee FerDon, Rev. Brian Sanderson, and Rev.
Charlie Peck invite you to celebrate spring, celebrate love, and
celebrate close friendships both old and new by coming to visit
us at First Methodist United Church during the month of April.

gratitude: Christ is Risen!
He is Risen Indeed!!

Lee UMC To Host


Financial Workshop
Christian families suffer more from the mishandling of fi-
nances than from any other single problem. Why? Because of a
lack of understanding about God's principles of finance.
Christ teaches more about money than any subject other
than love. Nearly two-thirds of all Christ's parables deal with
money and how to handle it.
A seminar entitled "Journey to Financial Freedom" will be.
held at Lee United Methodist Church on April 23, 2005 from
9:00 am 4:00 pin. A nursery for infants through age three will
be available upon request after registration.
This seminar will deal with questions such as:
What does God's Word say about handling money?
What are traps to avoid?
What is financial freedom?
How can we develop a plan to ensure there's enough mon-
ey at the end of the month?.
What about the future?
Both husband and wife are encouraged to attend. The cost
is $20.00 person, including materials and lunch. Register now
by calling 971-5559. Please help others by telling them about
the seminar.
This seminar will be taught by an instructor from Crown Fi-
nancial Ministries.

It's Me- God!
When Jesus chased the money lenders out of the
S temple, He was right to do so. He did it out of respect for j
S Me. The temple was a house of worship, not a mercan-


tile.
Unfortunately, Jesus did so at His own peril. The el-
ders of the temple were appalled. The trading and selling
that went on was a good source of income for them, plus
it was somewhat of a tradition. Once again, though, Je-
sus did the right thing, and once again, it was another
mark against Him with those who wanted Him gone.
Follow Jesus' example. When faced with something
you know is wrong, do what is right, no matter the cost
to you personally. Ultimately, although you may pay a
price on this earth by being unpopular or angering some,
you'll be rewarded by Me.
Like Jesus, have no fear. I am always with you.

HEAVEN OR Hell Quiz


Can you be headed to Heaven and not doing anything about
those headed to Hell around you? (the majority) Yes or No


Jesus said, "Whoever confesses Me before men I will also confess before
My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I
will also deny before My Father who is in heaven." Matthew 10:32, 33


If you are talking to others more about your children, sports
team, or yourself than Jesus, you probably have a destination
problem.

NATION & WORLD NE


NEARLY 16 TONS OF SPOILED
FOOD SEIZED AT SUWANNEE
INSPECTION STATION AND
DESTROYED, BRONSON REPORTS

Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commission-
er Charles H. Bronson today announced that his department
has seized and destroyed nearly 32,000 pounds of rotting and
contaminated pork, beef,
chicken, duck, mussels and
other food items that were
destined for Chinese
restaurants in the Jack-
sonville area.
The seizure oc-
curred on Saturday when a
.4 refrigerated truck coming
from Doraville, Georgia,
was stopped for inspection
at the Office of Agricultur-
al Law Enforcement's Interdiction Station on U.S. Highway
129 in Suwannee Springs. While inspecting the cargo, officers
detected a strong odor of thawing meat and noted that the
truck's refrigeration unit was not operating.
After scanning the tractor-trailer's cargo with a gamma
ray imaging machine which reveals details of cargo that are
obscured from a visual inspection, officers escorted the truck
to the Suwannee River Valley Farmer's Market and unloaded
its contents. They found, among other things, a thawed and
gutted duck carcass that had fallen out of a plastic bag, boxes
of frozen mussels that had warmed to 34 degrees, and cross-
contamination of meat and non-meat products.
After an inspection by Bronson's Food Safety Division,
the items were declared unsafe and seized by officials. Ulti-
mately, 2,511 containers containing nearly 32,000 pounds -
or 16 tons of food were deposited into the Hamilton Coun-
ty Landfill.
"The diligence exercised by our officers and food safety
inspectors have prevented these unfit food items from entering
the marketplace and possibly compromising the safety of the
public," Bronson said.
The Interdiction Station at which the spoiled food was de-
tected is one of 22 such stations that Bronson's office operates
along the North Florida border. Designed historically to keep
plant and animal pests and diseases out of Florida by checking
the 12 million commercial vehicles that enter or leave the state
each year, the stations are playing an increasingly important
role in both homeland security and food safety. They have
been the sites of numerous arrests in recent years of suspects
carrying drugs, stolen merchandise and other contraband into
Florida, as well as the locations at which spoiled or compro-
mised food entering Florida have been detected and seized.

GOVERNOR BUSH HONORS COURAGE
OF FALLEN FLORIDA SOLDIER

Governor Jeb Bush today recognized Sergeant First Glass
(SFC) Paul R. Smith for his bravery and for making the ulti-
mate sacrifice to his country and fellow soldiers. SFC Smith,
33, of Tampa, was mortally wounded on April 4, 2003, while
leading his unit, the 11th Engineer'Battalion, 3rd Infantry Di-
vision, in defense against
a.s Iraqi Special Republican
M " Guard troops near the
4", Baghdad airport. The pla-
l .f~ toon was setting up a hold-
S ,ing area for enemy prison-
'-' ers of war when the unit
-- came under enemy fire.
Using his equipment, SFC
Smith hpld-off enemy
troops, allowing his fellow
wounded soldiers to be evacuated. He is credited with saving
hundreds of lives. "America has long relied upon the men and
women in our armed forces to ensure the principles of freedom
and democracy are properly preserved for future generations
to enjoy," said Governor Bush. "I'm proud of Sergeant
Smith's valiant service and selfless devotion to his men, his
mission, and his country. I thank him for his service to our
nation and our state, and his family for their sacrifice. May
God bless them all."
President Bush earlier today presented the Medal of Hon-
or, the nation's highest military award, to SFC Smith's widow
and children during a White House ceremony. SFC Smith is
the third recipient awarded the Medal of Honor since the Viet-
nam War and the first soldier awarded since the conflict in Mo-
gadishu, Somalia in 1993. Created in 1861, the medal has

A California Church's Victory
Over Zoning Discrimination

Christians in Dixon, California, say city officials have
been unfair to churches in the downtown area over the past
few years, using a variety of means to make life difficult for
religious institutions. One congregation, Calvary Chapel of
Dixon, has felt particularly persecuted.
Calvary Chapel pur-
chased a vacant theater in ;
the downtown area, and its
extensive renovations .
eventually won the praise '. :
of local building officials .
for the church's attention -
to safety and excellence. -"
But city planning officials ..
still sought to impose nu-
merous heavy burdens on "
the church in dealings that
contrasted sharply with the ease with which the city accom-
modated other assembly uses, such as clubs and lodges.

After the City Planning Commission was warned that its
discriminatory practices could lead to legal action, the com-
missioners proposed a new ordinance. The proposal was to in-
crease restrictions on churches, lodges, and clubs, rather than
ease the burdens already being placed on the churches.
However, City Council members rejected the ordinance
after citizens, including church and community members,
showed up at a public hearing to denounce the Planning Com-
mission's unfair actions. Community members spoke out at
the hearing, along with attorneys from the Pacific Justice In-
stitute, and urged the Dixon officials to abide by federal law.
PJI's president, Brad Dacus, notes that, in this case, the
people found out that ordinary people can sometimes "fight
City Hall" and win. "Churches in the community saw that
they were being isolated," he says. "They united. We spoke up
on their behalf, and they spoke up on their behalf, and in the
end the city council was forced to listen."
Dacus says he and his legal group are "very glad to see
that the city council heard from the community and did the
right thing." He adds that this has been an important victory
for the people of Dixon, and for all churches that desire to
make an impact on their cities.
"If there had been no one to speak up," the PJI president.
notes, "and if no one had voiced their objections, the city. of
Dixon would [continue to] be a very intolerant town when it
comes to churches." Now, however, the legal advocate says he
is hoping that this turn of events will mark a new era in Dixon
one in which churches will not be relegated to second-class
status.
"Local governments can no longer ignore the significant
rights granted to religious institutions under federal law," Da-
cus asserts. He adds that any churches that are being subjected
to discriminatory zoning or land-use restrictions should take
