A Scar Is a Small Trophy Dinner A Great Success Carnal Happiness vs.

In A Valiant Fight

Wanna see my smallpox vaccination scar? Upper left arm,
almost to the shoulder. Not highly visible now, but at the time it
spelled great relief to my.parents. That's because I was a sickly
child, and came down with everything known to man in the ear-
ly '40s. They figured if I could be spared even one deadly dis-
ease, they would go for the vaccine. Thus, the small round scar
above my bicep.
Not so with the polio vaccine. I carry no scar from that 6ne.
Yet it may have been far more important than the smallpox in-
Here at the fiftieth anniversary of the polio vaccine, I won-
derwhy I don't remember more about it. According to news re-
ports and discussion programs over the past week, communities
in the United Sates lived in near panic, afraid of polio. Neigh-
borhood swimming pools closed; families stayed away from lo-
cal parks; patients sneaked in the back doors of their doctors?of-
fices to avoid contact with other patients; parents rushed their
children to an emergency room with the slightest case of sniffles.
Twelve or 13 years old at the time, I should recall some of this,.
but I don't.
I asked my mother whether we got the:polio vaccinations
and how much it cost. With five children to raise on a country
preacher's salary, such an expedition could not have been easy.
She said, "Yes, but I don't associate an amount with it. That
could be because so many doctors treated the preacher's family
for free. Maybe it didn't cost us anything."
She could be right. Still, you'd think I would remember that
huge needle coming at me. Failing that. I should recall some
sense of gloating at the thought of that enormous needle coming
at one of my pestiferous brothers. But no, not a single memory
threads through my mind.
And that makes me sad, because the polio vaccine freed our
nation from the stranglehold of a fear almost as paralyzing as the
disease. I would like to remember that important period in the
medical history of the w world.
Jonas Salk presented our world with salvation from pain,
misery, and death. What greater gift could a person offer? Later,
we got the Sabin oral vaccine, and Hillerman came along with
vaccinations against: a host of other childhood diseases only
somewhat less threatening. What a tremendous debt of gratitude
we owe to these scientists wh6 gave us, well -- life itself.
Now, of course. researchers are toiling day and night to find
a vaccination against AIDS and a treatment fodrAlzheimer's. I

Spiritual Happiness

We have plenty in this country to be thankful for.' The trou-
ble is, we don't often realize it until we're hit by adverse cir-
cumstances. It's then that we remember how things used to be.
How often do we find ourselves content with what we have?
There's always a desire to have more. I'll admit, I'm one of the
guilty ones when it comes to desiring things. .,
Jesus said that if we love the things of the world, we are of
-the world. He didn't mean that we shouldn't desire the things
that we need food, clothing, good medical care, or even things
that would just make our lives easier. He, did mean that we,
shouldn't place anything ahead of Him. .
Too often, the pursuit of our carnal happiness over helms
the pursuit of our spiritual happiness. We \% ant just a little more,
not realizing that %we are neglecting God. We allow ourselves to
become of the %world, not of Jesus.
. Masbe we should all pause right now and thank Jesus for
giving us the things we need for this life food, clothing, shel-
ter, transportation instead of complaining about what we don't

Reflections from Tall Pines
Elizabeth Tuttle

Pot"tin Worud Oa Paerm

This is being rituen for ybu by my oldest daughter Laurie.
Foi, those of ,,u who have wondered why my article has been
absent from the neiw spipcir for the last few weeks, no, it doesn't
A..,.I take that long to move. However, here is the story!
In the midst of our move, one afternoon I didn't feel quite
like mn\- \ I was having difficulty explaining something to my
husband. He .h,'i I was being funny. And finally said,
"What the heck are you talking about?" I thought I was just
tired, For the next couple of days everything seemed fine.
A few days later, we made a trip to Tennessee to take my pi-
ano to my daughter and to pick up some bedroom furniture. My
daughter noticed that my speech was not quite right. But there
again. we thought it was because I was so tired.
A few da\ s later, I called my daughter to ask her a question
about hooking up my computer, and I told her to be patient with
me because I was not able to articulate what I was thinking very
well. That's when I realized something was wrong. That's also
when my daughter realized something was wrong. Under the
guise of fixing my computer she drove over from Tennessee to
see for herself what was going on. She asked me several ques-
tions as to how I had been feeling and what symptoms I had
leading up to this, of which there were none.
To make a long story short, she made a doctor's appoint-
ment for me. We went to the doctor and he asked me several
questions about how I had been feeling and what symptoms I
had leading up to this of which there were none. He was a little
surprised. He ordered blood work for me that same day and
scheduled me for an MRI the following week.
My next visit to the doctor revealed that I had had a small
stroke. What a shock. I had no warning this was happening to
me. It was a bolt out of the blue. This stroke affected my speech,
my writing, my typing and my reading. It could have been much
worse. God is really taking good care of me and for this I am
very thankful.
But now, the frustration begins. Thank goodness my daugh-
ters and I have a good sense of humor. I have invented a new
language of my very own. It's very difficult to go from one day
doing everything for yourself that you are used.to doing to not
able to write or communicate. I have been going to speech ther-
apy once a week since my diagnosis. I am told I am improving
greatly but it's hard for me to see it because I'm the one strug-
gling. At this point, if you spoke to me on the phone, you would
not be able to tell I have had a stroke. I am able to mask the prob-
lem very well. Just don't ask me to write for you unless you have
a translator.
. At first I could not even cook, and now that is coming bnck
I am also now able to sew, which I love. I tire easily right now.
But I feel much better than I did. 'Ifai sure that will also disap-
pear with time.
I don't know if this is a good thing or not, but the doctor
gave me permission to drive around locally. My daughter thinks
this is funny because she tells me to stay away from people, an-
imals, mountains, ditches, buildings, flowers, and any other liv-
ing or non-living thing. And she also tells me that the big red
sign with 8 sides is the STOP sign. S as in ssssss ...STOP. Sweet
daughter of mine.
I look forward to being able to continue writing my column.
What has happened to me has happened for a reason. I don't
want to ever forget what this experience has been like. From
time to time I may have my daughter help me write an article
about what I have gone through and the progress I am making.
It may help someone out there going through something similar
or who has gone through this before.
In the meantime, I wish you all well, and don't forget me.
I'll be back....Keep Smiling.

munity involvement in school activities, mentorinig, academic
enrichment, alternative education, and expanded after school
The Safe Schools/Healthy Students (SS/HS) Initiative will
provide funds to contract with Apalachee Center, Inc. to pro-
vide mental health services to children and their families of
Madison County which may or may not qualify for Medicaid.
These professional mental health service providers will identi-
fy those children who already have serious emotional distur-
bances and will ensure that they receive appropriate referral,
treatment, and follow-up services they need. These services
may include, but are not limited to: programs for children and
adolescents with conduct disorders and related problems, those
who exhibit aggressive antisocial behavior, depression, self-
inflicted violence, and/or who abuse drugs. This project will
fund activities that (1) provide screening and assessment in
the school setting; (2) provide appropriate school-based men-
tal health prevention and early intervention services for at-risk
children and adolescents and their families; (3) provide refer-
ral and follow-up with local public mental health agencies
when treatment is indicated; (4) provide training and consulta-

tion to school personnel; and (5) provide supportive services to
families in order that they may participate fully in the educa-
tional, social, and healthy development of their children.
The Safe Schools/Healthy Students Initiative project will
supplement the Teen Parent program as it provides services
that make available preventive and intervention services that
enable young children (ages 0-5) to enter school ready to learn.

Included in the on-site visits were Smithfield Packing
and Farmer's Co-Op. Smithfield has ammonia present. The
Co-Op has ammonium nitrate and ammonium sulfate. Both
of these are ingredients used in fertilizer.
Martin said the inspections are important. Constant
monitoring by the companies is also vital to safety in the
county. The storage of chemicals and their use, must be
watched. Substances may come into contact with other
chemicals and cause severe damage.

is widely communicated to parents, teachers, and students; (3)
penalties that are imposed fairly and equitably and are com--

and (7) policies and procedures to ensure that parents and the
larger community are welcome in the schools and have oppor-

out the school's safety policies.
Schools that function well have a strong academic focus,
support students in achieving high standards, foster positive
relationships, promote meaningful parental and community in-
volvement, and recognize the social and emotional needs of
students. Schools that have comprehensive violence preven-
tion and response plans in place, plus teams to design and im-
plement those plans, report positive results such as improved
academics, improved attendance rates, reduced disciplinary re-
ferrals and suspensions, improved school climate that is more
conducive to learning, better staff morale, more efficient use
of human and financial resources and enhanced safety. This is
the focus of the Madison County School District Safe
Schools/Healthy Students Initiative.

Sunrises Mean New Opportunities
I saw a sunrise today. Wait! Before the reader turns the page,
changes channels, or tunes out, think about it. I do not see many of
hese. They are simply scheduled at a difficult time for me. But last
Monday, I was driving east on a rural road, and sure enough, there
t was (the sun comes up in the east). I noticed the sunrise was bet-
er, more beautiful, on the country road, than on the interstate high-
way. This may have something to do with state sunrises being bet-
ter than federal ones, but I don't think so. It was just a better view.
Since the time has changed, or rather, the clocks have been
changed, I see more sunrises. Being a night person, I still do better
with sunsets.
I suppose if you work in the business of agriculture, especial-
.y the care and feeding of farm animals, you may frequently arise
early. Cows, horses, pigs, goats, sheep, chickens, and other animals
may need care which is not always planned for mid-morning. You
may often see sunrises.
Anyway, sunrises are here to stay and happen nearly every
day. When the day begins with rain and clouds, we don't always
see the sun. I assume it is still present.
Just what does a sunrise mean? It means the night is over and
a new day is beginning. It means a fresh start, a beginning anew.
We each get this day. We can use it in many ways. Sometimes it
seems as though we have not many choices. If we have a job or go
to school, much of our schedule is set for us. But there is some of
the time we have control over, some that we can choose to use or
Recently, my wife and I lost a friend. The lady woke up one
day and it was. her last day on earth. No one knew it would be. She
suffered from a condition which sent her into a coma and then took
her life. She was gone quickly.
That could be any one of us. Several members of my family
travel quite a bit. We see it all. This past Sunday afternoon, my wife
and I saw a car overturned on the interstate highway. The emer-
gency vehicles were all there. It was hard to imagine anyone could
survive such a wreck. The person in the car had no idea what was
waiting just down the road.
Time is so short. It seems like yesterday I was a child. Now I
am a "mature" adult.
The Bible says, "So teach us to number our days that we may
apply our hearts to wisdom."
The sunrise says we have a new day. The unused hours lie in
front of us. The unpainted canvas, the blank book can be put to use.
How many days are left to us is not for us to know.
Cervantes said in Don Quixote, ..a time for all things; a time
for great things, and a time for small things."
Good morning to a new beginning.

The Hickory Grove United Methodist Church had a really
busy weekend, with two different activities. First, on Satur-
day, April 2, the Church participated in Lee Homecoming,
with a food booth of homemade chocolate cakes, and their fa-
mous Chicken Pileau cooked in old, black wash-pots. Unfor-
tunately, the chicken pileau was all gone by about noon, as
well as the cakes.
The church would like to apologize for running out of
Chicken Pileau, but did say to be sure to attend Down Home
Days, and they will have plenty. All the money collected on
Saturday will go towards Relay for Life, said Kim Buchanan,
chairman for this year's Relay for Life team. "We raised over
$600 on Saturday, and every single penny will go to the Amer-
ican Cancer Society."
On Sunday, the Hickory Grove Church held the official
dedication of the new "sports facility," located across from the
church, to Randall Buchanan, long-time member of the
church, and educational leader of Madison County.
Nearly 100 folks from Hickory Grove and other churches
started playing softball at 3:00 p.m., and the dedication was
held at 5:00 p.m. Right next to "Randall's Playground" is the
Hickory Grove Arboretum, named in memory of Joe and Lu-

Arlon and Betty Sue Buchanan are pictured as they un-
veil the plaque that dedicates "Randall's Playground."

Dan, Arlon and Bobby Joe Buchanan unveil the plaque
that dedicates the Arboretum to Joe and LuJette Buchanan,
the three men's parents.

Jette Buchanan, Randall's parents, and also members of the
church for many years.
A beautiful bronze plaque was erected for both "Randall's
Playground," as well as the Arboretum, and both were un-
veiled during the dedication ceremony.
Also on hand for the event, was the oldest son of Joe and
LuJette, Gale Arlon, who lives in Adel, Georgia. Gale and
Carol donated five acres of land to the church so the Play-
ground and Arboretum could be built. In the ceremony, Gale
presented the official deed of the land to the Chairman of the
Board for the Church.
Also in Gale's comments, he invited church members to
plant native species of local plants on the Arboretum trail, as
that is what he has been doing for the past few weeks.
In closing, he said both he and Carol were indeed proud to
donate the land to the church that he grew up in, and meant so
very much to his parents.
It was an absolutely great day, with the small kids playing

Leading By Example

~ To Eliminate Silent Killer

Thousands of people die
from embarrassment each
year and the American Can-
cer Society wants it to stop.
Two of the American
Cancer Society Florida Divi-
sion's top leaders CEO Don
Webster and Immediate Past
President Karen Moffitt un-
derwent colon cancer testing
in March in an effort to take
the mystery and fear out of
this vitally important process.
Both Moffitt and Webster
had colonoscopies, the type
of procedure made famous by
Today Show host Katie
Couric in 2000.
"I've been putting this off
for years," said Moffitt, 57,
Who resides in South Tampa.
"I feel bad that I waited so
long because the procedure is
actually no problem at all." .
Today, colon cancer is the
second leading cause of can-
cer death in the United States.
Early stages of colon cancer
usually show no symptoms,
meaning that regular testing
is imperative to catching the
disease before it becomes
deadly. If caught early, colon
cancer has a 90 percent sur-
vival rate. Otherwise, that

rate plummets to nine per-
"At least half the people
we lose to colon cancer could
have been saved," said Web-
ster, 55, of Tampa. "It's a can-
cer that shouldn't be killing
as many people as it does."
Webster says he under-
stands people's reluctance to
be screened.
"There's an embarrass-
ment and fear," he said. "But
20 years ago, people were
embarrassed to talk about
breast and prostate cancer,
too. That's changed, and it is-
n't awkward to talk about
these parts of the body any-
more. This has helped reduce
prostate and breast cancer
death rates. If we can desensi-
tize people from their reluc-
tance to talk about colon can-
cer, we could have the same
type of impact."
Moffitt says that when it
comes to testing, there's noth-
ing to fear. Patients are anes-
thetized while a slender, flex-
ible, hollow, lighted tube is
eased inside the colon. A tiny
video camera sends images
back to a TV monitor where
the physician can get a clear

picture of any polyps or other
The exam itself only
takes about 30 minutes. "And
when you wake up, there's ibo
pain or soreness," Moffitt
said. For her, it was the pre-
ceding day's preparations,
which involved a special liq-
uid diet and the ingestion of
very strong laxatives to clean
out the entire digestive sys-
tem that took the most com-
"If you're reluctant to get
a colonoscopy, there are other
testing methods that are noil-
invasive," Webster said. He
suggests that people discuss
testing with their doctors.
That's especially true for old-
er individuals. The American
Cancer Society recommends
that both men and women,
age 50 and older, get screened
on a regular basis.
Ultimately, both Webster
and Moffitt agree, getting
tested is worth the effort. "It's
like any medical procedure -
you're going to be nervous;"
Webster said. "But it's truly
not a big deal and it shouldn't
be ignored- especially if it
can save your life."

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month a time to fo-
cus public attention on the devastating epidemic of sexual vi-
olence that plagues our nation.
April 2nd was Sexual Assault Awareness DaN a time to
gather together to show\ support for those impacted bN sexual
violence and to promote the decision to end sexual violence.
The statistics are staggering. A sexual assault occurs
everN 90 seconds in this country.
Here in Florida. o er 12,000 sex offenses are reported to
law enforcement each year. This is estimated to be only 28-
of the actual number of rapes taking place. leading nearly
33.000 victims suffering in silence without help from the jus-
tice system.
In Florida. one in nine women hawe been a \ ctim of sex-
ual assault.
In Madison County last year, there were 90 reported inci-
dents of sexual assault and domestic violence.
It is an outrage that more is not being done to end sexual
violence. More must be done to pro ,ide help. services and
justice for the women, children and men w ho are \icumized.
Rape crisis programs across the county are \working dili-
gentlh to increase public awareness of sexual violence and its
consequences-to end assaults and to help victims.
The Florida Council Against Sexual Violence in Tallahas-
see states that w e need many more
resources and much stronger support from policymakers and
from every segment of societN
in order to create change in our state.
Citizens should \ rite. call. and fax their state representa-
ti\e and state senator in support of
legislation assisting victims of sexual assault.
We need community involvement and support. We all
have to work together to end sexual violence. You can help by
supporting the work of the Refuge House.
Help is available in MNludion County by calling Regina
Watkins. the- Outreach Ad\ocator at the Refuge House, at
973-4144. The mission of the Refuge House is to provide di-
rect services to battered w omen, children and sexual assault
survi\ ors. as well as to eliminate the conditions in society that
allow such violence to continue.

Happenings At Madison First Baptist

April 15, 2005
By Nell Dobbs
"I'd rather see a sermon any day than hear
one." From our Sunday School Teacher's book
Debbie (Bass) told us this story about an un-
kempt fellow who came into a very crowded
church and walked all the way to the front and
sat down on the floor getting many unkind
glances. Then people watched in wonder as an
old well-dressed deacon walked down the aisle
on his cane, sat down by the fellow, and put his
arm around him. As the Preacher began, he
said, "You won't remember the sermon I'll
preach today, but you will long remember the
sermon you've just seen." Amen.
Beautiful yellow arrangement Sunday was
provided by Milton and Donna Driggers in
honor of their 26th wedding anniversary April
14 and to honor the birth of their grandson,
William Gabriel Gamalero. Blessings upon
them and all their family! Glad they're in our
Preacher gave Shellie Holbrook an oppor-
tunity to tell of her heart's desire to go to Jor-
dan two weeks in July to use her talents for the
Lord. A special offering was taken up for her.
Preacher also reminded us of Nita McCullough
and her many years of labor in Nigeria for the
Lord, for Kelley Kinsey Noonan (great to have
her in church Sunday) and Eric Scott as they
ministered in the Ukraine with Campus Cru-
sade, and Christy Bass Adams as she labored in
China. Let us all pray earnestly for more la-
borers as the harvest truly is plenteous and the
laborers are few.
I Harry Rotter is now home after a year in
Iraq and he spoke giving thanks to Martha Beg-
gs' SS class for praying for him and all those
serving our country. Also he expressed thanks
for all churches, individuals, families who've
prayed for him these twenty-two years of ser-
vice. Especially he thanks Liz for thirty-four
years of love with hopes for that many more.
He does see changes for the better in Iraq and
is glad to be home.
Laine Wakefield blessed us singing

"Where the Nails Were" and Chancel Choir
sang "Headin' Home Medley" (a favorite of
many of us). A big thanks to Laine for super
Preacher said thanks to Howell Edwards
for providing orange juice for him in case of di-
abetic attack. He preached from John 6 that we
are to believe in Jesus though often it is hard
and often there are difficult times. Sue Down-
ing came forward to express thanks for God's
saving power and changes in her life.
Death has come among us again. We pray
for the family of Carl Bevis and our church
family and give thanks for a life well lived in
all areas. Such a special service...such a special
Death has come to Preacher and Stacey's
family in the loss of her grandmother. Special
prayers for all of them.
Also, to the family of Mrs. Ethelle Odom.
She was such a special person serving in so
many ways would have been 92 on the 16th.
Many of us loved going to the "Gift Store" in
her home, where we found so many neat items.
She had many gifts one that of writing sweet
letters as do her daughters, Glendyle (Little-
ton) and Bobbie Sue (Collins).
Night service was great. It was good to
hear Geoff Hill give the message and what a
message from Romans and Revelation. As be-
lievers, we'll be in a new location; we'll have a
new address; we'll have a new name written on
a white stone which no one knows except the
one who receives it; a new spirit. He says num-
ber one question asked by young people is how
do they know they're saved (they are a new
person and all things are new) and number two
is about suicide (How tragic!)
Tuesday night at 6:30, the Association
Semiannual Meeting was held at our church
with Dr. Robin Jumper of Baptist College of
Florida speaking and many in attendance.
Pray for all our ill ones, Betty Jane Wilson
who had knee surgery, Billie Sue Luttrell still
May the Lord fill us with His Spirit!

10A TheMadisonEnterprise-Recorder MADISON COUNTY HISTORY

M4ry SftcocCe 6rc6h(

*7oo edd% dctavad4e

By Mike Moore
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Many churches from sever-
al denominations serve' the
needs of Madison County peo-
The oldest church building
in continuous use in the City of
Madison is St. Mary's Episco-
pal at 108 Horry Street. The
congregation was organized in
1859 and the building was com-
pleted in 1881.
The frame building was
built by local carpenters who
used native wood. It is an excel-
lent example of Carpenter
Gothic architecture, a typical
style found in North Florida
during the time of its construc-
After the organization in
1859, meetings were held irreg-
ularly, then when war came in
1861, services were discontin-
ued altogether. In 1866, W. E.
Eppes came to Madison once a
month. In 1879, the parish at
Madison was reorganized. A
piece of property was pur-
chased and the building fin-
ished two years later, in 1881.
The church was consecrated in
1883. .
Often, priests from other
parishes served the worshippers
in Madison.
Early 'church members in-
cluded H. Weller. A. J. Dozi-
er, H. J. Parramore, John B.
Marshall,; Joseph Bithwood,
and the Scruggs family .
The quaint church building
sits among magnolias, oaks.
azaleas, and boK%\ood. It has
sur\i ed wars. storms, and
tough umes, but the building
still stands. The church has
been used for %weddings..funer-
als, and biaptisms.-
St. Mlarn's is located one
block northwest of the town
square in Madison. The struc-
ture is a \white %wooden building
with a cathedral ceiling and
wooden beam trusses. The nar-
row vertical feeling of the e\te-
rior is reflected in the wooden
siding. high and steep gabled
roof. and lancet window s.
Centered o\er the altar in
the east \%all is a stained glass
window w% ith a portrait of Jesus.
This %\indow% has been in place
since 1915 and ma\ be an orig-
inal Tiffany creation. High in
the west wall is a round stained
glass window with a picture of
Mary. Narrow w indows are lo-
cated along the walls. The onrig-
inal panel doors are still in
place. The church floor is made
of natural heart pine. The walls
are beaded pine wainscoting.
The ceiling is tongue and
groove pine. The ceiling has ex-
posed beams which interlock to

support the steep-pitched roof.
The parish hall was added in the
late 1940s and enlarged in
Rev. Ben Pfeil is vicar and
is an ordained priest. He is also
the member who has been at the
church the longest. He was or-
dained as a deacon and later as
a priest at St. Mary's.
Episcopal beliefs may not
be familiar to some readers. The
church uses the Book of Com-
mon Prayer and also uses both
the Nicene and Apostles creeds
in its worship. The church ac-
cepts the Bible as Divinely in-
.spired. Clergymen wear vest-
ments during the services.
The Episcopal Church is,
the American branch of the An-
glican Communion. They are
headed up by the Archbishop of
Canterbury. The churches are
involved in child daycare,
schools, colleges, inner city
missions, prison work, relief for
the hungry, and other min-
The Madison church is part
of the Episcopal Diocese of
Florida which 'is. divided into.
five regions. St. Mary's Is in the
Apalachee Region. The diocese
was established in 1838 and
covers 25 North Florida coun-
ties with 75 congregations and
15 parochial schools. These
churches serve about 14,000
households. The diocese also
has a camp and a conference
center. There are 119 dioceses
in the United States with about
t\\o and one-half million mem-
bers. World\\ ide, about sevent\
million members are part of the

St. Mary's Episcopal Church on Horry Street is the oldest continuous) used church building in the Cit o'f Madison.

Seal Refl


ects History Of The

I Diocese of Florida

the seal of the Diocese of Florida is St. John the Evangelist.
He holds in his left hand a chalice, one of the symbols of
St. John. The Book of Common Pra er in his right
hand indicates that.J this Diocese the first An-
Slicaii Piraei Book services held within the
continental limits of the United States were
held aboard a ship anchored in the St.
Johns Ri\er near Fort Caroline in 1565.

Abo\e St. John's head are seen

% which organized the diocese in

St. John stands with three palm
trees on each side, representing
Florida's sub-tropical climate. The
eagle %itrh ouLtspread wings is a
W. N mbol of St. John. As a bald eagle,
it is also a sN mbol of the United
States. Beneath the eagle, hiding his
Salons, is an orange branch with blos-
soms. This is a reminder that all of the
state \%as once included within the Dio-
cese of Florida.
The use of St. John'has a historical
connection with the St. Johns River, the state's
largest. ,

Spring Turkey Hunts

Cancelled In Holton Creek

And Suwannee Ridge WMAS

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife' Conser\ action Comi-'
mission (FWC) has cancelled
the mobility-impaired spring
turkey hunts scheduled for
April 15-17 in Holton Creek
and Suwannee Ridge wildlife
management areas (WMAs)
in Hamilton County.
I The excessively high wa-
ter levels on the Suwannee
and Alapaha rivers have
flooded both of these WMAs,
causing unsafe roads and dan-
gerous driving conditions.

"For the safety of our
hunters, we have been forced
to cancel these turkey hunts,"
said Rolando Garcia, the
FWC's North Central region-
al director. "In fact, the areas
are so inundated, that access
by any means is severely re-
stricted right now."
Mobility-impaired hunts
are reserved exclusively for
mobility-impaired hunters -
hunters who can't walk, or
can't walk without an assist-
ing aid.

On March 5, 2005, Madison Academy's fifth
grade class, along with their teacher, Mrs.
Whigham, had a really cool experience of going
to Florida's Capital in Tallahassee. The fifth,
grade had been studying about the legislative
process in social studies and thought that this was
the perfect opportunity to see the Senate and Leg-
islature at work. While on their field trip, -they
\ visited the Cit) Hall, the Mayor's office, the Old
Capital, the New Capital, and Florida League of
Cities Office and observed the Tallahassee Trans-
port Management

The Noung students reallJ enIjoed dus expe-
rience! Along with learmng some \er\ impoffant
facts about their capital, the) h.id a lot of fun.
Some of the students' favorite things thes did
were being in the mock cession in the Old Capi-
.tal, observing the Tallahassee Transport Manage-
ment, obser\ ing the Senate and House of Repre-
sentatives in session, and going to the 22 floor at
the New Capital. Some of the thing's they learned
were who the Senators were, what the Florida
League of Cities does, and, of course, that manN
of the jobs were much harder than they seemed!
If you ever get a chance to tour your state capital,
go and you won't regret the learning experience.

Madison Academy fifth grade students are pitcured standing in front of the Old Capitol.

Miss Rose Festival


Friday, April 15, 2005 THOMAS VILLE

Grand Marshal

Named for 57th

flnnual Rose parade

-'' The 57th Annual Rose Parade will march
and roll down Broad Street Friday, April 22
at 7 p.m. and leading off the procession of
bands, floats, clowns and other entries will be
this year's Grand marshal Crista Lynn.
Crista Lynn is an 18-
year-old rising country music OW "f
star who resides in Stock-
bridge, Georgia. Billed as
"Atlanta's Hottest Female
Performer", she maintains a .
schedule of weekend perfor- .7
mances while attending
school during the week. In
fact, she will miss her Senior
Prom to attend the Rose Fes-
Born in Valdosta, Crista
spent much of her childhood
in Thomasville and with the
parade theme of "Home is
where the heart is" she was the perfect choice
for Grand Marshal of this 84 year-old event.
"Thomasville really likes to pay homage to
her own, and once you have lived in
Thomasville it is a part of you forever," said.
parade chairman Kim McCray.
Crista echoes McCray's sentiments "I am
so excited about being invited to be the 2005
Rose Festival parade grand marshal and get
the chance to perform for old friends and
family," she said. "Although I have not lived
in Thomasville in more than six years, I still
recall with fondness all of the friendly people
there and will always consider Thomasville
my home base."
Crista has appeared on the extremely
popular television show "American Idol" and


has performed all over the Southeastern Unit-
ed States. One of her most favorite appear-
ances was when she performed for Governor
Sonny Perdue at a meeting of Georgia Hu-
manities Council in Atlanta.
Buddy Hyatt who is best
known for being a member of
the rock band TOTO pro-
duced her CD entitled "Every
Angel in Heaven". She is
featured on the Country Stars
.:. Online website, where you
can hear a sample of her CD.
Crista's voice is a rare and
distinctive combination un-
der-stated tone and edgy tex-
ture that reminds one of clas-
sic female country artists like
Deana Carter and Barbara
Mandrell. She wrings every
ounce of lyrical emotion out
a song, whether it is a delicate love-ballad or
a fun up-tempo romp with fiddle and guitars
While in Thomasville, Crista will not
only serve as Grand marshal for the Rose Pa-
rade, she will also be performing a concert in
Paradise Park on Saturday, April 23 at 1 p.m.
The concert is free to the public and will also
feature country music super star Alan Jack-
son's family "The Straynotes," whose music
can be described as a mix of gospel and blue-
grass with their own special twist. The
Michael Stacey Band, a country music band,
and local blues guitar genius Jamie Eubanks,
will also be performing. More information on
all Rose Festival events may be obtained by
calling Kim McCray at (229) 227-3310.

The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue a permit to
Full Circle Dairy, LLC, for Permit No. 40-0246246-001-El to construct and operate a
stormwater management system for a proposed dairy farm and composting operation for
Full Circle Dairy, in Madison County, Florida. The stormwater management system is to
provide for the collection and treatment of the stormwater runoff from the road, parking
areas, and roofs.

The stormwater management system consists of eight (8) dry retention ponds with required
appurtenances for capturing and treating the runoff from the total project area for the 100
year 10 day storm, which is approximately 16.1 inches. The total project area is approxi-
mately 149 acres and based on the top of bank elevation, the total retention area is ap.
proximately 28.2 acres. The stormwater management system provides for adequate atten-
uation, containment and recovery of the design storm event.

In addition to the above activities the permitted has proposed to place an unspecified vol-
ume of fill material within a 600 square-foot borrow pit. The borrow pit is an isolated sys-
tem without hydrologic or wetland vegetative connections, nor does the borrow pit contain
any submerged aquatic or other wetland vegetation within. As such the Department has
determined, based upon information provided by the permitted, that the proposed activity
is consistent with Rule 62-341.475, F.A.C., and that the permitted may commence with the
proposed activity.
7 I n.. ,r irh 0,n1 iii i-.u_. J.Ler.t i ..i. .1. i.Kl, petition for an administrative hear-
ihg i; filed under s'etions 12 .569 and 121i.57 of the Florida Statutes, or all parties reach a'
%'inten agreement on mediation as an allernauite reed. under section 120.573 before the.
deadline For filing a petition. Choosing mediation "ill not adserseli affect the right to a
bearing il mediation does not rt-sul in a eitlement. T he procedures for petitioning for a.
--hearing are set forth below, followed by the procedures for pursuing mediation.

A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed permitting
decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with sections 120.569
and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth be-
low and must be filed (received) in the Department's Office of General Counsel, 3900 Com-
monwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida, 32399-3000. Petitions must be
filed within twenty-one (21) days of publication of this public notice or within twenty-one
(21) days of receipt of the notice of intent, whichever occurs first. A petitioner must mail a
copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing.
The failure of any person to file a petition (or a request for mediation, as discussed below)
within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to re-
quest an administrative determination (hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida Statutes, or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any
subsequent intervention will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the fil-
ing of a motion in compliance with rule 28-5.207 of the Florida Administrative Code.

A petition must contain the following information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the Department's permit
identification number and the county in which the subject matter or activity is located;
(b) a statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the Department's ac-
(c) a statement of how each petitioner's substantial interests are affected by the depart-
ment's action;
(d) a statement of the material facts disputed by the petitioner, if any; `
(e) a statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the
Department's action;
(f) a statement of which rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modi-
fication of the Department's action; and
(g) a statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that the pe-
titioner wants the Department to take.

Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the
filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be different from the po-
sition taken by it in this notice of intent. Persons whose substantial interests will be affect-
ed by any such final decision of the Department on the
application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance
with the requirements set forth above.

Any person may elect to pursue mediation by reaching a mediation agreement with all par-
ties to the proceeding (which includes the Department and any person who has filed a time-
ly and sufficient petition for a hearing) and by showing how the substantial interests of each
mediating party are affected by the Department's action or proposed action. The agree-
ment must be filed in (received by) the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, by the same
deadline as set forth above for the filing of a petition.

The agreement to mediate must include the following
(a) the name., addreses-. and Ielephone number of ahy persons who may attend the me-
(b) the name, address, and telephone number of the mediator selected by the parties, or a
provision for selecting a mediator within a specified time;
(c) the agreed allocation of the costs and fees associated with the mediation;
(d) the agreement of the parties on the confidentiality of discussions and documents intro-
duced during mediation;
(e) the date, time, and place of the first mediation session, or a deadline for holding the first
session, if no mediator has yet been chosen;
(f) the name of each party's representative who shall have authority to settle or recommend
(g) either an explanation of how the substantial interests of each mediating party will be af-
fected by the action or proposed action addressed in this action or a statement clearly iden-
tifying the petition for hearing that each party has already filed, and incorporating it by
reference; and
(h) the signatures of all parties or their authorized representatives.

As provided in section 120.573 of the Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of all parties
to mediate will toll the time limitations imposed by section 120.569 and 120.57 for request-
ing and holding an administrative hearing. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the me-
diation must be concluded within sixty days of the execution of the agreement. If media-
tion results in settlement of the administrative dispute, the Department must enter a final
order incorporating the agreement of the parties. Persons whose substantial interests will
be affected by such a modified final decision of the Department have a right to petition for
a hearing only in accordance with the requirements for such petitions set forth above, and
must therefore file their petitions within twenty one (21) days of receipt of this notice. If
mediation terminates without settlement of the dispute, the Department shall notify all par-
ties in writing that the administrative hearing processes under section 120.569 and 120.57
remain available for disposition of the dispute, and the notice will specify the deadlines that
then will apply for challenging the agency action and electing remedies under those two

The application is available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m.
to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection, Northeast District Office, 7825 Baymeadows Way, Suite B-200, Jack-
