Sold Out To The Lowest Bidder
Wal-mart, of course, is the leader of the pack. After. all, they
ARE the richest corporation in the world. However, it seems like
every item I purchase from anywhere is from "Chipantaico".
Where is that you ask? China, Japan, Taiwan, Mexico, etc., etc.,
etc., anywhere other than here, the good ole' U.S.A.
I know that the average consumer probably never stops to
think about that, but now stop and think! If it's coming from some-
where 'over there', who is getting paid to build it?' Your neighbor?
My neighbor? You? I don't think so! We are all buying our jobs
right out of the country by patronizing the very places that sell
.overseas products! How long has it been since you saw "Made in
Is there a solution? Yes and no. Ours is a nation of poor and
down trodden. How does a family of four making $20,000.00 a
year, afford to buy anything else but foreign products? It's cheap,
available, and.handy. You bet those people can't afford to go any-
. where else for their needs but Wal-mart, and Wal-mart knows it,
and so do the many other multi-conglomerate giants. The cheap la-
bor and very minimal, if any, working standards lure, the greedy
companies to press forward for the almighty dollar in search of
cheaper labor and materials overseas. It does not matter who gets
chewed up and spit out along the way. Who gets che% ed up' The
very people you see greeting you with a smile; a shopping cart and
a minimum wage paycheck in their pocket. Pretty soon, Chipain-
taico will manufacture an ALL automated system for self checkout.
It's being done on a small scale already and' it's growing. Pretty
scary! Get your own cart now and, oh yeah, look out for all the

achieve this?, hmmm....VOTE! Voice ,our opinion' Demand to be

the bottom up. "Trickle down" doesn't work.

I wish to join Mike Moore isn't this Florida State Semi-

Seminoles proud of the fact that Florida State chose their tribe -
with its Indian brave galloping onto the battlefield, casting' his"
weapon into the ground in an act of defiance to any-who dared
invade his territory as. its team mascot and even adopting the
tribal name? Both the Seminole tribe and the Florida State
Seminoles originated in Flonrda and each has helped the other.

jealousy -'if we can't be famous they haven't earned it!, then
we rumble someone else from his pedestal'. Enough already.
(Thanks, Mike.) .
Spealkng of ridiculous, hoaw about both the hospital brouha-
ha and the reemere'ence of the French affair? Now that Bob
Pugh has accomplished the before impossible task of bringing
the hospital from bankruptcy to solvency. the board of directors
or at least some of them are envisioning their dream of a
hugh. expensive building coming-true by plunging themselves
back and e\en more deeply in debt. It is my opinion that,

Set Up A
Family Bsiness Center
Can't seem to put your hands on the bill that arrived in the
mail last week? It may be time to get organized and set up a
home business center or reorganize your current one. The time,
you spend now may save you dollars later.
Handling your personal finances will be much easier if you
have a well-equipped home business center. It does not have to
be elaborate either. It should be located in a convenient, com-
fortable area of the home, contain necessary equipment, sup-
Splies, papers, records and references, and have a good light.
You may be able to find space for a home business center in
. just about any room of your house. Ideally, if you had enough
space, you would have a designated room for a home office. But
few homes today are large enough for such a luxury. Instead,
consider a spare comer in the living room. bedroom. kitchen or
You will need some equipment for your home business cen-
ter such as a sturdy writing surface, comfortable chair. storage
space for current records and diapers. equipment and supplies.
This does not automatically mean you need a desk and file
cabinet. You can use the dining room table as your writing sur-
face and a nearby cabinet or chest for storage space. A desk and
storage unit can be built in an unused closet. A plywood or hal-
low core door mounted on two. two-drawer filing cabinets pro-
vide both storage and writing surface. Or, you could use a new
or remodeled standard office desk and file. or a combination
desk and metal file unit.
You also n ill need some supplies such as pencils, tape,
ruler, scissors, deposit slips, pencil sharpener, stationery. en-
velopes, paper clips, rubber bands, stamps a dictionary and
Once established, you may want to add items along the way.
Other supplies that you may want, but that are not essential in-
clude: stapler, paper weight. an adding machine, bulletin board,
and a computer.
Your home business center will provide space for storing all
of your supplies, material and important papers and documents,
bills, unanswered mail, and current receipts. Having all of your
finances in one area keeps you organized and paying bills on
time. .-hen it'comes tax time, all of your financial records are in
one lodafftiL. '

ter contact Madison County Extension office.

We recently returned from a great trip to Atlanta where our,
family gathered this year at daughter oan's to celebrate my 86"
birthday and we believe a wonderful time was had by all.
Joan, Jack and son Don have turned their yard into a veritable
riot of flowers. shrubs. trees, butterflies, bees and humming
birds and in the evenings, as we sat on the deck. a silvery moon
and croaking frog was our entertainment.
They recently installed a nice big pool with deck and priva-
cy fence and grand daughter Pam's husband Chuck serenaded us
both with banjo and guitar and Grand 01' Opry and with classi-
cal types of music we did not know he was so good. We had
not been swimming in years but the pool was irresistible and we
wanted to find out if we could still swim and float (we could go
to sleep on top of the water) and we still can.
We received many lovely cards. gifts. gift certificates and
money but the high-light of the occasion was the wonderful ar-
ray of foods prepared and displayed so beautifully on a hugh
buffet table by grandson Don who is a great chef. He also
works as a maitre'de for a large Atlanta restaurant and is an ex-
perienced caterer. Added to that. their yard is evidence that he
and Joan would do well in the landscaping business. Nedless to
say this birthday was one for our book of memories. ':
So. other than personal, we don't have much news at this

Ashlee Simpson Performs At Wild Adventures Theme Park Aug
SHOW STARTS AT 7 P.M.
Long before, she recorded
her first album, Ashlee Simp-
son was well on her way to
becoming a household name.
When your sister is as famous
as Jessica Simpson, being in
the spotlight is inevitable.
But Ashlee' has successfully
differentiated herself from her
big sister and brings her dis-
tinct sound to Wild Adven-
tures Saturday, Aug. 27, be-
ginning at 7 p.m.
With two seasons of a re-
ality TV show, a major tour
and debut album under her
belt, Ashlee Simpson has
moved out of her sister's
shadow and created her own
shining star. Her performing
career has its roots in classical
ballet, which she began study-
ing at the age of four. By the
time she was 11, Ashlee was,
the youngest student admitted
to the American School of
Ballet, but soon left to tour
with Jessica .as a dancer.
Fans began taking notice and
she garnered her own follow-
ing, which provided the mo-
mentum needed to jump start
her singing career.
MTV quickly signed her
for the reality series, "The
Ashlee Simpson Show,"
which has aired for two sea-
sons. Ashlee's debut CD,
Autobiography, has sold mil-
lions of copies and she even-
managed to live down the
critics who took aim at her for
the now-infamous "Saturday
Night Live" and Orange Bowl
incidents. It's apparent her
fans don't care what critics
say, making songs such as "La
La" and "Pieces of Me" chart
toppers and selling out venues
for her appearances.
This all-star concert is
just one part of the excitement
at Wild Adventures. Discover
more than 100 rides and at-
tractions, including nine roller
coasters, and enjoy refreshing
fun in Splash Island Water
Park. Come face-to-face
with more than 500 exotic an-,
imals set in natural habitats
throughout the park or take in
one of the entertaining daily
shows. It's adventure for all
ages! Wild Adventures is lo-
cated off Interstate 75, exit 13
in Valdosti, Ga.
General admission group
rates are available for church,
school, corporate and eany
group with 20 or more people.
:Get unlimited fun at t\ o
theme parks for only $49.95!
The Passport 2005 offers un-
limited access to Wild Adven-
tures and Cypress Gardens
until Dec. 31, 2005 with no
blackout dates, including ac-
cess to all concerts, special,
events and Splash Island at
both theme parks. For more

MADISON COUNTY HISTORY
The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 11A
Blue Springs Has Been Popular Spot
For.Generations Of County Residents
The spring forms a circular pool about 40 feet in diameter. Water flows from a large
caVern entrance at the south end that lies ait the bottom of a steep rocky bluff about 20 feet
high,) and is about 25 feet deep. One of the most extensive cave systems in North Florida
is to be found here.
The sandy bottom slopes upward from the caverh entrance to the run on the northeast
side of the spring. A constriction of the run from 25 feet to about 15 feet creates a strong
flow, and this strength has been increased 6y the placement of large rocks-across the nar-
rowest part of the 100-foot run. The.bottom of the run is rocky and sharp. The run flows
into the Withlacoochee River in the opposite direction of the river, and the result is a
large arc of clear water and swept river-bottom.
Water in the spnng is clear and blue. and the temperature in the spring basin was
70 degrees when measured on June 1, 1999.,
The spring water warms as it merges with the tea-colored waters of the With-
lacoochee. which registered 76 degrees on the same date.
The site is multi-level, with paths terraced with railroad ties. leading down to
the springs. Most people enter the spring by a wooden deck %with stairs leading down
to the water, for the rocky walls here are steep and there is no beach except along
S" he narrow run to the Withlacoochee. Certain spots along the rocky walls are suit-
able for diving into the spring. People enjoy shooting through the narrow opening
at the spring in inner tubes. They are propelled like rockets into the river.
S.. Above the cavern entrance and about waist deep is a natural ledge about two
feet wide that.visitors can stand on to gaze down into the cavern opening below.

No one seems sure of the name. The folks who operate the place and those who visit it and
those who place the signs and write the information cannot agree on a name. Is it Blue Spring
or Blue Springs?
It does not really matter. It is another of North Florida's beautiful spots and it is locat-
ed in Madison Count\. Hamilton County is across the Withlacoochee River from the spring.
There are two parks .% ith similar names, with one in Madison County and another in

of the popular swimming spot.
As far back as 1860. a local teacher. Warren McLeod. w rote in his diary that he had
fished in the Blue Springs area. He described the springs as "clear as crystal and almost
as blue as the sky." According to his diary, he did quite a bit of fishing.
The spring also has historic importance because it was used by local people as a
fresh water source.
In the days around the rime of World War 1, a popular summer pastime in Madi-
son County was giving and attending house parties. One of the favorite spots for
these was Blue Springs. A three-room cabin n as located there, with boys sleeping
in one room, girls in another, and the chaperones. a married couple, in the middle
room. One time, a girl w~as thrown into the springs in the middle of the night. Sup-
posedly, the chaperones never knew about the activities.
The area also has a tragic part to its story. Several times. divers have become
disoriented in the caves and have lost their lives. A long-time local resident re-
calls as a youngster hearing that divers had been called out to bring back one or
more bodies from the caves of Blue Springs. Several springs in Florida share Caiper
this tragic connection. Shown i a 19
The spring has long been a hangout for local folk. and until being bought for
$200,000 in-the early 1990s, was also a local dumping ground. Vandalism had also increased in
the area. The owners cleaned up the place, landscaped it \ith mostly native plants, and turned
it into a rustic dive resort.
There was some discussion several years ago about selling the springs to foreign buyers, but
this did not happen, thanks to the efforts of county residents who wanted to save it for the en-
joymnent of local people. Tommy Greene spoke with the owners and had a large part in sa\ ing
the springs from possible private use or destruction. An indi\ idual from Saudi Arabia wanted to
purchase the area and fence it off for his own use.
In October of 2000. the Florida Cabinet approved state purchase of the spring, which was
to be turned over to Madison Count\ to be managed and protected. The cost w\as $1,108.000 for
the 38.68-acre parcel.
After awhile, Madison County chose not to operate the facility,
and the state assumed control. And in 2005. the
spring officially became a Florida

Beef Remains Top Of The Grill
"Beef. It's What's for Din-
ner@." This is a tagline recog-
nized by most Americans. And
thanks to Florida beef checkoff
dollars, consumers also know
that beef is what's for summer.
This is the middle of the peak
grilling season and consumers
are hungry for beef, which is
historically "king of the grill"
during the summer months. So
beginning in May and running
through Labor Day, one of the
most popular beef checkoff
programs is focusing on pro-
moting beef through a variety
of activities around summer
grilling, including in-store pro-
motions, advertising, and retail
Development of the checkoff-
funded summer grilling pro-
motion and additional market-
ing and resource materials is
coordinated on behalf of the
Cattlemen's Beef Board and
state beef councils by the Na-
tional Cattlemen's Beef Asso-
ciation (NCBA). The NCBA
serves as one of the Beef
Board's contractors for check-
The summer holidays -
Memorial Day, Fourth of July,
and Labor Day -- are typical-
ly the three largest grilling
days of the year. Thanks to
beef checkoff dollars, con-
sumers are enjoying more beef
on their grills all summer long,
not just during these' peak
grilling times. This is because
the beef checkoff has created
dozens of promotions that put
the sizzle in burgers, steaks
and other beef cuts.
"Yes, the beef. checkoff is
delivering a positive message,
particularly this summer, and
it's has contributed to efforts to
increase demand for beef,"
said Polly Golden, Executive
Director, Florida Beef Council,
"In fact, demand for beef in-
creased nearly 8 percent last
year and overall has risen more
than 25 percent since 1998."
That said the Beef
Checkoff Program is commit-
ted to satisfying consumers'
appetite for beef year-round
through a variety of programs
aimed at reinforcing the con-
venience, nutrition and safety
of beef. The industry's goal re-
mains to steadily improve the
marketplace for U.S. beef pro-
ducers and keep beef top of
mind for consumers, especial-
ly during the popular summer
"Year after year, the sum-
mer grilling program has
gained more and more mo-

ALLIGATOR HUNTING PERMITS STILL AVAILABLE
Since 1988, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission ,
(FWC) has offered thrilling, hands-on, face-to-face alligator hunting opportu- ..:.
cities that are unlike any other hunting experience imaginable: .
If this type of hunting adventure sounds exciting to you, the FWC still --- -~
has nearly 1,300 alligator harvest permits remaining for the upcoming season,
available on a first-come, first-served basis through Sept. 20.
Permit holders are authorized to take two alligators from designated areas during specific harvest
periods that run Sept. 1 through Oct 8. Alligator harvest areas are listed at MyFWC.com/alligator un-
der "Alligator Harvest Permit Availability."
Applicants have the option of applying at any county tax collector's office, license agent (retail out-
let that sells hunting and fishing licenses), online at MyFWC.com/license or by calling toll-free 1-888-
HUNT-FLORIDA (486-8356).from anywhere in the United States or Canada.
To secure a permit, applicants must submit payment for an alligator trapping license and two alli-
gator-hide validation tags, or provide proof of a valid alligator trapping license (must be valid through
Oct. 8), plus pay thefee for two hide validation tags. No other hunting licenses are required.
The cost for a resident alligator trapping license and hide validation tags is $272, and non-residents
pay $1,022. For each alligator taken, the hunter must complete and send in an alligator harvest report
form to the FWC. .Data gathered from these forms enable FWC biologists to monitor population trends
and impacts on the annual harvest.
A resident or nonresident alligator trapping: agent license is also a\ ailable to consumers for $52.
This license allows the holder to assist a trapper in taking alligators, but only in the presence of the per-
mitted trapper. All persons seeking a harvest permit must be at least 18 years old by Sept. 1, and only
one harvest permit per person will be issued.
