ew., Skate Park Located At Lanier ie


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Skateboarders now have a
place to be free from traffic and
places, causing possible acci-
dents. The City of Madison now
has a skate park at the Lanier
Field sports complex., "
According to Chuck Hitch-
cock, Public Works Supervisor
for the City of Madison, the park
was paid for as part of a recre-
ation grant. He said that he is cur-
rently checking with the Florida
League of Cities to get signage,
indicating rules for the skate park,
done for the area.
"We don't want to catch any-
one there without the proper skat-
ing gear," Hitchcock said. "It's
mandatory that all skaters wear
helmets."
The skate park was originally
designed with an 11-foot radius,
but it had to be changed to an 8-
foot radius.
"Hopefully,;'we'll'be able to
do another phase to the skate
park," Hitchcock said.
Hitchcock said that he hopes
to get the signage up and that the
park will be officially open by the
end of the month.

September 24th will be the 34th annual National Hunting
and Fishing Day and plans are underway for a nationwide cele-
bration. One of the best ways all of us can create a better pub-
lic understanding of hunting and fishing is to create a better pub-
lic awareness of the important role that outdoorsmen and out-
doorswomen have played in conservation and improving our
natural resources.
National Hunting & Fishing Day was established by Con-
gress 33 years ago to recognize this vital commitment and to
point out what is and what can be done to insure a healthy future
for wildlife.
Now is the chance to enjoy your "natural invitation to step
outside."
National Hunting and Fishing Day is always observed the
fourth Saturday in September.

Family Sports Night Begins Soon!


M.O.Ms (Moms of
Madison) wants to an-
nounce the start of "Family
Sports Night" af the Lee
Park. It will begin Sept.
26th and will be held on
Monday evenings (weather
permitting) from 5:30 6:30
pm at the new Lee Soccer
Park on US 90 across from
Airport Road. This is a
time for families to join to-
gether for a family-friendly
sports experience for our
kids. We won't be playing
to just win a game we will
be playing to teach our kids
how to be good sports, how
to work together & to en-
courage the habit of healthy
exercise.
If you want to give your
child experience playing
sports with other children,
but don't enjoy the hectic
pace and added expense that
belonging to an organized
league brings to your fami-
ly, this is for you! Bring
some sports equipment and
come play with us! We will
spend the first 30 minutes
practicing and the final 30
minutes playing an informal
game. We'll begin playing
soccer (Sept. 26th Oct.
31st) and then football
(Nov. 7th Dec. 19th) this
fall.

Frequently Asked
Questions:

Who's in charge? You
are, parents. This is a fami-
ly event...bringing families


together to do what you
would normally do in your
own backyard.
Who will teach the
sports to my child? You
will, parents. We will learn
from each other. Some of
us know more about specif-
ic sports than others... if so,


when we do that sport, you
will be the EXPERT and the
rest of us parents will de-
pend on you to help us out.
Who is Moms of Madi-
son? Mom's of Madison is a
group of stay-at-home Moms
who began meeting about 6
years ago in a playgroup, &


have since started several
local activity groups to
meet the needs of families
in Madison. Moms of
Madison activities include
Aerobics classes, Titus 2
Time (our version of
MOPS), Moms & Tots play-
group, Babysitting Co-op,
Moms in Touch prayer
group for Madison County
Schools & now Family
Sports Night. For more in-
formation about any of
these activities, contact
Christy Androski. at 971-
0016 or send an email to an-
droski4 @netscape.net.
How will Family
Sports Nights be orga-
nized? We will divide'into 2
large groups ( one for each
soccer field perhaps
roughly divided by ages of'
children PK-2nd & 3rd- 5th
graders or perhaps we will
just divide families evenly).
Parents will practice with
.their children for about 30
minutes, and then .supervise
the dividing into teams
(maybe Children vs. Parents
or other mixed teams). Af-
ter .teams are determined,
everyone will play an infor-
mal game for about 30 min-
utes.
What does Moms of
Madison provide? We pro-
vide publicity for the event,
reserve the park and share a
dream of what the event can
be.
Will there be team T-
shirts, team pictures, a
concession stand, etc.?


Yes, maybe. If we can
dream it, we can do it to-
gether. If we want to add
any of these things, we can
work together to find com-
munity sponsors and make
it happen.
Can I drop off my
child? NO... please read the
rest of this article again
VERY carefully. This event
is designed for FAMILIES.
Do I have to play too?
Yes (unless you have an in-
fant or small toddler to tend
to), your doctor would'
probably say -the exercise
will be good for you. Don't
worry about whether or not
you are any good or not it
will encourage your kids if
theN are better than you are.
We aren't playing to win a
game we are playing to
teach our kids how to be
good sports, how to work,
together & to encourage the,
habit of healthy exercise.
What will I do if I have'
an infant or small tod-
dler? Mom & Dad will have
to tag team to handle this
.one. Perhaps Dad could
take the older children to
practice, while Mom takes
the younger ones to play in
the playground area. Or if
you are. a single parent, you
can team up with another
family.
Is Moms of Madison li-
able if my child gets in-
jured while playing? NO.
You are in charge of your
child at all times during this
event. We are a group of in-


dividual families meeting to
play together in the park.
What should I bring?
Bring sports equipment for
the game we're playing,
what you have already at
home for your kids. You
may want to label it with
your name. so it won't get
mixed up with others.
Remember to bring
plenty of water,for everyone
to drink! .We want you to
stay hydrated! You may
-want to bring a picnic sup-
per to eat at the park before
or after we play.
What other sports can
'we play? Whatever we
-want! Remember, if we can
dream it, we can do it to-
gether. Maybe we'll want
to do basketball in the Lee
gym this winter & T-ball or
tennis at the Lee Park in the
spring. It's up to us!


Laid Off? Can't pay your bills?
BANKRUPTCY may solve your financial problem,
Hurry, bankruptcy laws change on October 17, 2005,
making it more difficult to file for relief.

According to the Ameri-
can Association of En-
dodontists (AAE), sports in-
juries are one of the leading
causes of knocked-out teeth
each year.
The key, say AAE ex-
perts, is to act quickly, yet
calmly, and follow these
five simple steps:
1. Pick up the tooth by
the crown (chewing sur-
face), not the root. Handle
the tooth carefully by the
crown, avoiding the tooth
opening, to help minimize
injury to the root..
2. If the tooth is, dirty,
gently rinse it with a spray
of water. While taking care
not to handle the root sur-
face, gently rinse the tooth,
with a spray of water. Don't
use soap or chemicals, and
don't scrub or dry the tooth.
or wrap it in a tissue or
cloth.
3. Reposition the tooth
in the socket immediately, if
possible. The sooner the
tooth is replaced, the greater
its, chance of survival. To
reinsert, carefully push the
tooth into the socket or posi-
tion the tooth above the
socket and close the mouth
slowly. Hold the tooth in
place with fingers or by gen-
tly biting down on it.


4. Keep the tooth moist
at all times. The
tooth must not be
left outside the
mouth to dry. If
it can't be re-
placed in the
socket, put it in a
glass of milk or in
the mouth next to
the cheek. If none of
these is practical,
use water, prefer-
ably with a pinch of
salt.
5. See ah endodontist


within 30 minutes. A tooth
can sometimes be
saved even if
it's been out-
side the mouth
for an hour or
more, but get-
ting professional
help within 30
minutes signifi-
cantly improves
the odds of suc-
cessful. reimplan-
tation.
Although your child's
dentist may be well-quali-


fied. to handle an avulsed
tooth, it may make more
sense to visit an endodon-
tist. Endodontists are den-
tists who specialize in per-
forming root canal treat-
ments and saving natural
teeth. Accustomed to han-
dling dental crises, they're
often very flexible in ac-
commodating emergency
treatment requests. In many
cases, endodontists can
saye teeth that once would
have been considered hope-
less.

more adorable duo. Choose one or
both; you'll have taken the prize.
2764 MURPHY Nine month old
Brown and Tan Male. Looking for a
second for Frisbee? Here's your
man....a good jumper and smart as a
whip. But if truth be told, the best
thing about Murphy is the love that
beams out of his golden eyes.
2846 DANA Six week old Brown
Female. Your first response will be
"Awwwwww, what a precious girl.
Then you'll want to hold her. She'll
cuddle in your arms and that will be
it....you'll take Miss Dana home.

Tan and White Male. If you will just
come and meet Grizzly you will be
charmed, I promise. He is hand-
some, he has impeccable manners,
and he is alight with love. What else
would anyone want?
2826 KING Eleven week old
White Male. Looking for a playful
companion? How about a cuddle-
bug? Someone to go on long walks
with? What's your thing? King will
go, or should I say, bounce along.
Cheerful himself, he'll make you
feel more cheerful too.

State And Local Government Should Be In Charge, Not Federal Government


Unless you've been hiding
under a rock the last week or so,
you've certainly heard of Hurri-
cane Katrina. I and many others
were shocked at the devastation
in Mississippi, Alabama, South
Florida and the Florida Panhan-
dle. 1.2 million people were
without electricity in Miami
Dade alone, I have no idea how
many people were without elec-
tricity in the other devastated ar-
eas. Everyone was mildly sur-
prised and happy that New Or-,
leans had been spared the on-
slaught of Katrina when at the
last moment, Katrina decided to
hang right. But, destiny has it's
own way of doing things. Below
is my recollections and reflec-
tions on this whole mess.
1. On Friday evening the
National Weather Service pre-
dicted the path of the storm head-
ing towards New Orleans. By
Saturday morning, it was clear
that the storm' was growing in
strength and it was suggested that
people begin evacuating. I
watched on TV the thousands of
vehicles at a near standstill lea -
ing the city.
2. By Saturday afternoon it
w'a's clear that Ka'inha 's is' 0ow-'
ing in strength. The Mayor of
New Orleans appeared on TV
weepy and sad, expressing con-
cem about what could happen in
New Orleans if it got a direct hit.
3. BN Sunday morning, it
Swas obvious that the storm


would hit as a Category 4 or 5.
4. On Sunday afternoon, the
Governor of Louisiana was cry-
ing and worried about the state
and asked the rest of us to pray
for Louisiana. ;
5. Sunday at 2:00 pm a
mandatory evacuation was or-
dered.
Now, let's look at what hap-
pened, and why.
1. 10% of New Orleans
was and has been below the
poverty level for years. It w would
have been obvious (to me any-
way) that these people had no
means to leave the city by them-
selves.
2. Not a single hospital,
faced with mandatorN e acuanon
orders, was moved. \'e'\e not
heard of a SINGLE airlift, ambu-
lance or a bus load of patients
getting out of hospitals in the di-
rect path of the storm, and mo\ ed
to areas outside of the impact
zone.
3. Not a single school, pub-_
lic, or charter bus left the city car-
rying people unable to find the
means of leaving on their own.
Now: .
1. There, are hundreds of
buses and cas iiunder'wafer 'in
New Orleans and elsewhere in
the regions. I believe the Mayor
of New Orleans had no idea what
in Gods green earth to do, where
to go, therefore went into tuding
for txwo days. "I nexer saw him
on TV any'say".


Shane Mercer:
Pictures, home' videos,
clothes. I wouldn't try to
load up too much.



Darius Robinson:
The first thing I'd grab
would be rny clothes. I would
also grab dry food, like water
and beans. Pictures would.
be the last things I'd grab.

2. The people should under-
stand that y ou ne\ er elect a s\m-
pathetic social worker ttpe to
public office. If an individual
hasn't served in the militant or in
an equivalent capacity of manag- .
ing huge infrastructures and peo-
ple. the\ have no business run-
ning a go\eminent.
3. The Goernor of
Louisiana should be brought up
on criminal neghgence charges
for not calling up the Nauonal
; Guard, order a single e\ acuation
plan. or organize shelters until af-
ter the disaster hit. The Gover-
nor. a babbling head of mush
should ha\e given the leadership
reins to the Feds immediately.
she knew she didn't ha'e the
strength to run the show.
What people should have
learned by now:
When the government says
"leave" you LEAVE' You have
ready: 3 days of water and food.
a "grab and go" bag that contains
clothing. toiletries, and cash to
get you where you %\ill be safe.
If it takes you more than 15 min-
utes to evacuate, you're doing it
wrong and are not sufficiently
prepared.; ,If you have, more,
time, you should be able to ex ac-
uate with three weeks of sup-.'
plies.
Every person in your family
over the age of about 12 should
be trained in the use of futearms.
If you live in an area that doesn't
allow% \ou to own firearms.

I'd take my dalighter, Abbie.'
She's mentally challenged
and can't fend for herself.

The Federal Govemment is
not going to be able to help you.
As \w ith all law enforcement mat-
ters and catastrophes, they come
for the clean up. They are not
going to help you until after the
catastrophe has occurred
If I hear, one more person
making'a statement that begins
with 'The President of the Unit-
ed States should..." I am going ;9
punch him in the nose. ,kick him
in the butt, or knock them over i
the head with a mallet. This is
not a Federal matter. Nothing in
the federal government moves
until all the I's are dotted and T's
are crossed, "it's not ms job"
The Federal Government is
not the authority in charge here.
The STATE and LOC.AL go ern-
ments are in charge. If the peo-.
pie you've been electing to pro-
tect you in \our local and state
are bureaucrats \with no leader-
ship. management. or disaster ex-,
perience, knowing how to do
nothing more than write welfare
checks, you are seriously
screwed.. MOVE.
Looters or anyone stepping
outside of civilized behavior
should be shot on site-no mal-'
,ice, no concern. You're eradicat-
ing pests. Society will be better
off without them and the neigh-
borhoods and decent people of
the world safer. If a law en-
forcement official attempts to.
disarm you' while you are shoot-
ing looters, shoot the police offi-
cer. He"'s not your Officer
Friendly anymore, or your ally at
this time. It doesn't matter that
the looter is, only stealing food or
clothing. What matters, is that
they've cut in front of the line.
You know the expression
"women and children first"?
That's what civilized society
does in a catastrophe. Civilized
people, without prodding and
babysitting from government,
form distribution networks to eq-
uitably distribute food and cloth-
ing from the remaining supplies.
Civilized human beings do not
loot. SHOOT THEM.
You have only one ally in
such a disaster, YOU. You are
responsible for the health and'
safety of your family. The' loot-
ers and thugs of the world will
crawl from the cracks of society
and will prey on ,you and your
neighbors. This has happened in
every catastrophe that I can re-
member. If you are not prepared
for this, you will die.
Not a single event of this
catastrophe is a surprise to me,
with the exception of the extent
of the incompetence of the local
leadership.

Best Buds
Sometimes, you can feel like a knife is pointed at you at
work. You let stress get to you and the joy you find in your work
becomes a burden. You feel like that knife is going to go straight
through Nour heart. You become confused and angry. You get
unsettled as you wait for the knife to plunge into your very be-
-ing.
Friends become enemies. Words that are said can't be
bought back. They're too expensive. I know. A few years ago, I
said those words to someone I wish that I never had.
I \as angry at that person for a year. I reahzed, though. that
I had lost the argument just by saying w ords. I had even quit my
job, not because I had been hurt. but because I had hurt that per-
son and a fe" others I worked %%ith by saying things I never
meant.
I had to go back to the same job and eat my words. I did if
w willingly and %with the lo\e of Christ in my heart. The Bible tells
us "if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things are
passed away. All things ha\e become new." Charlie Brown once
said in a comic strip. to lo\e and be lo\ed is to feel the sun from
both sides. I feel that way about having friends. The person I had
probably hurt the most back then is no%\ m\ best friend.
We'\e had our ups and dow ns but the downs have helped us
cement our friendship and the ups continue to make us smile.


IN CASE YOU WERE WAITING FOR

THE KATRI NA COLUMN...
Just in case you've been %wondering %wh% I haven't written a
column about Hurricane Katrinia, you can nows set sour mind at rest.
Today I join the din of voices talking about the storm.
'In the first place, those residents ho w% ere able to leave but de-
cided to stay should.be fined, or at an\ rate billed for the cost of
their rescue and x hatever attention the\ received from public re-
sources. The attitude that "I \% ill just ride it out" is selfishness per-
sonified. The people who stayed took up rooms, food. water, and
time: that search. rescue,-and repair e-ams'could have-used:- As-it,
w\as. many had to s itch to rescue mode when their job was really
some other aspect of mhe disaster. Maiy rescuers had to sleep in wet
streets because hotel rooms and shelters were filled with the able-
bodied xho could have left three days earlier.
I repeat, those who could have left but chose to stay should be
fined or billed. My tax money should not go to support their "me-
first" behavior.
The radio proved a fount of information ini the weeks follow-
in2 the storm. In one interview, a female official with some bureau-
cracy made a stunninslh arrogant comment. Asked swh\ the gov-
emment was not supplying people with tents for temporary shelter.
she replied. "That was all right for the tsunami victims. but Ameri-
cans don't live in tents." Is she nuts" Most parents of young chil-
dren caught in the hot and humid wreckage around New\ Orleans
would have given anything for a tent to protect their young ones
from the searing sun and ravaging insects around them. To have pri-
\ac\ for a nap or to change clothes %what a treasure that \would
ha\ e been. But Americans slept in the open, fought off turkey-sized
mosquitoes, and went [without privacy because "Americans don't
lis e in tents." Off with her head!
As FEMA Director, Michael Brown held ajob for which his
strongest qualification was.being a friend of George Bush. That
turned out to be an inadequate weapon in the battle of Katrina's af- *
termath. However, he should not have taken the fall alone. The
mayors, govemors, and county leaders of the entire area should be
replaced at the soonest elections. They did not assist their people in
evacuating. Amtrak sent trains to carry people out; they chugged
away empty.-No buses, no taxis, no limos, or other vehicles parked
in front of public housing and called out for people to pack and get
on board. No police with bullhorns drove from area to area shout-
ing for people to leave. The necessary preparations went begging;
thus, thousands suffered and hundreds died. Their blood be on offi-
cial harids.
The racism card got tossed onto the table early, but in the
wrong context. The poor in New Orleans, the rural communities,
and the helpless in hospitals were indeed ignored.and unaided, but
that had nothing to do with ethnicity or color. However, this week
buses carried evacuees from a huge shelter to an apartment complex
where the\ could tour and then choose an apartment to live in rent-
free for six months, utilities provided. Only one family signed up.
Why? The displaced persons complained that the complex had too
many Hispanics living there. Talk about racism!
A man from St Louis who heads up supply, distribution for a
small faith-based agency couldn't, stand seeing the need and not
helping. He took $1,000 out of his family's savings (he had not been
paid his full salary in recent months because donations had dwin-
dled) and drove into the destruction. He lived in his truck for a week
at his own expense. He reported that last Saturday 35 semi-trailers
filled with food, water, and other supplies arrived from Vermont.
That did not include trucks from other areas. He stood at the door
of his truck from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. just directing supplies,
not eating, drinking, or going to the restroom.
Then there were the kindly FEMA representatives who walked
around those crowded shelters, taking information from the help-
less and the hopeless., writing down bank account numbers, Social
Security information, and other critical data. Turned out they
weren't from FEMA at all. Police managed to apprehend and arrest
some of them. Imagine taking advantage of such a situation. For
them, a firing squad at dawn.
Oh, well. The disaster simply magnified us, warts and all.
Those with hearts just grew bigger hearts; thieves and blackguards
simply became more so. If somebody makes a movie of this, maybe
they will call it "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly." May God have
mercy on all our souls.

Keep Hands Clean


With Good Hygiene
September marks the 11th annual National Food Safety Ed-
ucation Month. A month long observation, this year's theme is
"Keep Hands Clean, with Good Hygiene." Each year, USDA
Food Safety and Inspection Service partner with the National
Restaurant Association to educate the public and food service in-
dustry about strategies for keeping food safe.
The Florida Extension Service is taking a part in the month-
long awareness campaign to focus attention on the important
procedures necessary for proper hand washing. There are many
important steps to take to keep microorganisms from contami-
nating your food and hand washing is one you may have over-
looked.
I was recently in a public restroom about to washing my
hands, when a young child at the next sink proudly announced,
"You must wash your hands for at least 15 seconds!" As her
mother turned three shades of red, I thanked the child for.re-
minding me and told her there were a lot of people in this world "
who did not know that fact and I hoped she would remind peo-
ple whenever she got the chance. She proudly smiled and we
exchanged a few more words before going our separate ways.
I'm sure the young child learned that rule at day care and she is
probably still reminding every stranger she encounters in re-
strooms. Truth is, frequent hand washing is one of the major
steps in keep food safe. It seems all too simple, but you can't
wash your hands enough when it comes to preparing and serv-
ing food.
Below are a few points to follow anytime you wash your
hands.
Implement the following steps to wash your hands proper-
ly: 1.) Wet your hands with running water as hot as you can com-
fortably stand. 2.) Apply soap; vigorously scrub hands and arms
for at least 20 seconds. 3.) Vigorously scrub hands and arms for
at least 20 seconds; 4.) Clean under fingernails and between fin-
gers; 4.) Rinse thoroughly under running water; 5.) Dry your
hands and arms with a single-use paper towel or warm-air hand
dryer. 5.) Use the paper towel to turn off the running water.
Wash hands before starting work and after following any
of these jcii\ itie-: ,Using the restroom, handling raw meat, fish
or poultr): touching \our body, sneezing, coughing,or using a
tissue: smoking, eating. or drinking: handling chemicals that
might affect the safety of the food: taking out trash; clearing ta-
bles; or touching anything else that may contaminate hands.
Practice regular care of hands, in addition to handwashing,
to ensure hands will not transfer microorganisms to food. Keep
.your fingernails short and clean because long fingernails may be
difficult to keep clean and may also hide illness-causing mi-
croorganisms. Be warned that artificial nails and even nail pol-
ish can disguise dirt under nails and may break off into food.
Cover cuts and sores on hands with bandages and cover with a
gloves to prevent it from falling off into food.
During September's National Food Safety Education, you
have the opportunity to share this information with family, and
friends. Frequent hand washing is one of the major steps in
keeping food safe. .For more information on food safety, contact
the Madison County Extension Service.

this terrible storm.


Grammar

Quick, name one of the most exciting subjects you can think
of, right now. Hint: it was a favorite of e\ ero one in high school.
right up there with algebra and rope climbing.
English grammar, of course.
Many of us got our greatest high school thrills b\ studying
pronouns, adverbs, and exotic creatures know n as gerunds and
participles. Some of us could barely contain our excitement
when we diagramed sentences. The high drama of punctuation
and capitalization %\as ern real to us.
Seriously. it appears to me after man\ years of reading, writ-
ing, teaching English grammar and literature, that many people
must have slept through' English class. Many do not know what
is correct, or the) do not care.
Some curriculum-maker must have thought these things to
be important, because English is taught in all 12 grades. Or.
much more ominous, those who decide what is studied, may
have thought the language is so difficult that it \would take 12.
years to learn it correcil.
Strange. I know seminary .students who get a pretty good
knowledge of Ancient Greek and Ancient Hebrew in two or
three semesters. Highschool students take Spanish for a few
years and are. able to do alright.
But. English, the native tongue of many? Who cares?
I like speaking and w% writing correctly. If there is a form and,
a structure and rules, go by these things I feel good about read-
ing and writing and speaking. I don't need to say, "'He. like,
well, like, man..." The ever-popular, "Where is it at? He done it.
It ain't right. We seen him," are not just "country." They are in-
correct '
I have edited the writings of ma n people during the last 30
years. Some are afflicted with the idea that nearly everything
Should Begin With A Capital Letter. And some people believe,
that, many, commas, are, needed.
All of us, in our jobs, at home, at church., at school, have
right and wrong ways to do things. There are rules. Games must
be played within boundary lines. And in sports, there are penal-
ties to be paid. A man in a striped shirt picks up the football and
walks off penalty yards. Or a ref blows a % whistle, and a player
walks to the free-throw line. There are consequences.
Improper use of our languageha consequences. \Ve may

In our weekly spotlights we
have shared stories about our
progress in the school-to-work
transition. It's wonderful to read
and hear about a young person
with a disability starting their
first job in the working world.
You may ask why the head-
ing of this story speaks of the De-
partment of Transportation.
Over twenty years ago while I
was working for Respect of
Florida (a program that sets aside
government contracts for non
profits), the Secretary of DOT
met with me to express an inter-
est in working with community-
based nonprofits to provide em-
ployment opportunities for per-
sons with disabilities at Interstate
rest areas. At this time, Florida's
rest areas did not have a great
reputation and were once fea-
tured on 60 Minutes as a place,

you may not want to stop at. Mo-
torists traveling through Florida
were more inclined to stop at fast
food chains to use rest room fa-
cilities. My, how times have
changed.
During the middle eighties
and nineties we followed through
with DOT's offer and one by one
we took over rest area opera-
tions. We were able to move for-
ward because DOT was happy
with our performance, proving
that .persons with disabilities
could perform the work better
than what DOT had received in
the past by awarding contracts to
low bidders. Did it cost DOT
more? Yes it did but they felt the
results were worth it. It cost 'on
the average of ten to fifteen per-
cent more but not only were the
results better, there were signifi-
cant numbers of persons with
disabilities going to work, paying
taxes and staying gainfully em-
ployed while spending their
earnings in their local communi-
ties.
Many of the Interstate rest
areas are located in rural areas
where employment opportunities
were not readily available to any-
one, let alone an individual with
a disability including, Madison
County. Our agency obtained its
first rest area contract in the late
eighties and then later with the
addition of the Taylor, Jefferson
and Madison County Weigh-in-
Motion Station.. Through the
years our agency alone has had
literally oer t\mo hundred .indi-

viduals with disabilities obtain
gainful employment at these lo-
cations. When you look at the to-
tals statewide and consider the
time frames the numbers climb
to a couple of thousand at least.
Imagine the cost savings to the
,taxpayers statewide and the total'
value to all of the rural
economies that have benefited by
this initiative. The vision that
DOT had \\a. a \in \\in and,


proved out over time.
Within the last two years the
DOT notified us that the Madi-
son County rest areas were being
scheduled for a renovation. A
new water treatment facility
would be built that would also
serve the Weigh-in-Motion sta-
tion. Both facilities would need
to. be shutdov. n for these im-
pro\ements. The result of this
plan would ha\e had a.\ery neg-
ad'.e affect on our orgalnzdation
jind ctld have put over forty lo-
cal citizens with a disability out
of work. We immediately ap-
pealed to the DOT District Two
Maintenance Engineer, Mr.
James Hannigan, P.E. in Lake
City. Mr. Hannigan was in-
formed of the devastating impact'
the scheduled renovations would
have on our county as well as our
organization and the individuals
that depended on their jobs for
their livelihood. We asked DOT
if they would consider complet-
ing the construction project while
simultaneously keeping the rest
areas open, in order to minimize
the impact on our community.
Mr. Hannigan and DOT re-
sponded positively to our re-
quest which certainly compli-
cated the extensive work that
was to be performed. This spir-
it of cooperation demonstrated
by the DOT and their commit-
ment to oiu conimunil.l should
be recognized as something tru-
ly remarkable. DOT should be
heralded by all citizens of our
State as a fine example' of just
how one state department with
a vision can partner with a
community have such a pos-
itive impact. The State of Flori-
da has benefited by having a


rest area system known by mo-
torists as one of the best and
cleanest .in the nation. We have
all benefited by the early vision
and continued commitment of

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Do you like to meet and greet people? Do you like to help those facing
difficult times? Do you know how to answer a telephone?


Big Bend Hospice Needs You!


Big Bend Hospice needs front office volunteers to work at
the Madison office. Basic duties include greeting visitors to the
Big Bend Hospice office, answering the telephone and helping
callers, and assisting the patient care team with some of the rou-
tine office responsibilities. If you think of yourself as a "people
person" and you like knowing that you have made a difference
in someone's life, you have the skills Big Bend Hospice needs
at our Madison office.
"Because of our heavy patient visitation schedules, we need
someone who can be in the office when we are out with our pa-
tients and their families. It is so important that when we receive
phone call that the caller is able to reach someone who can help.
Volunteers can provide that vital connection," said Jan Lee,
R.N., team manager.
Volunteers who like to help those facing difficult times are
needed. Big Bend Hospice is looking for volunteers who can


dedicate 3 to 4 hours once or twice a week to work at the office
located at 801 SW Smith Street. Big Bend Hospice will provide
the three-hour required volunteer training at the Madison office
for those volunteering to serve as Big Bend Hospice adminis-
trative volunteers.
"Many times I hear people say they would like to help Big
Bend Hospice, however they don't feel comfortable volunteer-
ing to visit patients .in their homes. If that is you, your help is
needed to support our patient care team as an administrative vol-
unteer,":noted Marilyn Nations, volunteer coordinator. "The
volunteer training is informative and will give you the back-
ground you need to be prepared for this service. I guarantee that,
the rewards will be great.!" i ,

Trouble With The T-Bone


It's Monday morning 7:30
a.m., A typical Monday as they
go. Only toda.. My. husband,
Kevin, being the gentleman
farmer that he is, decides to take
T- Bone to L & W in Madison for
processing so that we can eat a lit-
tle better this winter. T-Bone is a,
steer, which Kevin and his broth-
er Leonard have been raising for
the last 18 months; which I might
add has been eating better than
we have.
T-Bone has been loaded in a
trailer which Kevin had borrowed
from Jim Hunter. This was
Kevin's first, raise to eat steer that
ever made it. as far as he did.
Kevin alone attempted to trailer
him from Hwy. 150 in Cherry
Lake to Madisonr via Rocky Ford
Road. As he passed Risoli's pas-
ture full of cows, old T-Bone
thought that was where he was
getting off. He started getting
restless attempting to vacate the
trailer.
Kevin in turn slowed down
to about 35 m.p.h.. The next thing
he knows, old T-Bone cleared the
gates doing ninety-eight. That
1000 lb. animal busted through
the first gate and jumped clear
over the second one landing on all
fours on the road. Thank God no
one was driving close behind
him. Kevin knows now he has a
problem. A passerby was nice
enough to call and alert the sher-
iff's department that Kevin and
his steer were running along the
highway. Kevin flagged down the


Madison Glass man to ask if he
could use his cell phone to call
me at home to get me down there
to assist in T-Bone's capture. I, in
turn, awakened my son Thomas
and ordered his assistance
A.S.A.P. As we were leaving the
homeplace, I laid on the horn to
alert my other son, Chris,. that
there was a problem. Upon arriv-
ing at the scene, we found that T-
Bone already had plenty of atten-
tion. Good local people and a
sheriff deputy were already trying
to comer and capture him.
Deputy Pat Dempsey and Corky
Brandies and some others who
stopped to help were on foot and
in vehicles, trying to comer and
block him in. T-Bone managed to
zig zag and dodge them all from
just north of the road department
to Jeslamb AME Church road. He
then hurdled the cemetery fence
and kept going, eventually com-
ing around the church taking a
left up Almond Road. About a
half mile or so up the road he
turned into a field. After playing
cat and mouse here for a while he
continued running the group even
further and further off the road.
About then Kevin's other brother
Roy arrived to help; Then Kevin
decided to have someone call L &
W and find out if it was possible
to take the animal down with a ri-
fle and then bring him in. After
this was agreed upon Corky and'
his son Ben Brandies assisted by
providing the rifle and managed
to stop T-Bone They also pro-

MADISON COUNTY HISTORY


The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 11A


Madison County Tops In State




With Historical Markers


By Mike Moore
Greene Publishing, Inc.
They are nearly everywhere. They are not quite as numerous
as trees, but there are many of them.
They are the Markers of Madison County.
Madison County has more historical markers than any other
county in Florida. One reason for this might be the fact that there
is more history here than almost anywhere else.
Present-day visitors and residents often drive by these records
of the past, without a thought. It is a worthwhile idea to stop and
read'and ponder sometimes.
The markers are a record of the past and we must not forget.
The people of Madison County owe a debt of gratitude to those
who have preserved and recorded information about the area's his-
tory.
