$3.1 billion escrow account.
The new 39-cent stamps

The local volunteer fire departments have a
New Year's wish list for 2006, which mostly
consists of tanker trunks and more volunteers
for their departments.

have been waiting on the
Division of Forestry to get
us one. We have a transport

are usually always active. We've always had a
problem trying to get folks to volunteer for a

Pickles said that the department pays all of
the tuition for the course, but that it in fringes on
the department's dwindling account.

Billy Tyson Resigns

As Building Inspector
B\ Jacob Bembrn
Gencnc Publishing. Inc.
"It's not about the money." Bill\ T\ son said of his decision to
resign as Madison County's building inspector.
Instead. T\ son said. it's because he has been overloaded x tth
w ork. .
"In September" hlie said. "I turned inI
m\ resignation because I couldn't do fi\e
job'. and do them \xell."
TN son said that. in addition to his du-
ties as building inspector, he x\a' also as-
signed to supervise code enforcement and
to handle planning and zoning, flood plain -
manacement and contract licensure. The
jobs xere previously handled b\ County
lManager Paula Arnold.
When asked if Countm Manager Joe Bill) Tyson
Nltrant had added the neiw Job repon',i-
biluies, he responded in the allirmati\e but added. "The count\
co:inmission is responsible for it happening.
"This is not about Joe." Tyson said. "Joe's a nice guy. I like
Joe and this is not a personalmh conflict \w ith him. I just can't do
fite jobs and do the job well "
.Tvson said that he hadn't heard an thing about his resigna-
tion until he reminded Nliranti and the commission that his resig-
.nauon would be effective at the end of December. He \as then of-
fered more money\ to staN onboard.
"I ne\er tried to hold the people up for more money." Tyson
said. "The\ could ha\e offered ne $100.000 a \ear and I would
still lea\ e."
T\ son said that Madison Couint is at a stage \w here they do
need to hire a planning and zoning director so that the county
does not get'irito the same shape with the extreme growth that
South Florida had.
"If they 're not careful, the South Florida stuff \ ill hit Madi-
son County and hit it hard." he said. "I didn't mo\e back to Madi-
son to have it turn into South Florida."
Tyson, w" ho began work as the county's building inspector on
September 10. 20012. after mo ing back to Madison County in
1999, said that after his resignation \was complete, he had planned
to xork for himself as a general contractor. A better offer from

Tyson said that being a building inspector is not an easy job,
having to. deal with people who, might not know the code as well
as the inspector does, and e\ en some who do notknow the code
at all. Most da\ s, he would find himself on the road for at least
five hours doing inspections.

Happy "Whatever IsYour

Choice" For The Season

Daisies at Christmas? Yes, Indeed

Here it is the season of
peace and light, so how can I
throw darts at anybody? I'll
seriously try in this issue to
hand out daisies only, in keep-
ing with the idea of love and
joy, and with the hope that
positive thoughts will impact
our New Year. So here goes.
Daisies to the Florida
Legislature for the new law
that cuts the ropes of lobby-
ists' influence on our political'
process. This should have
been done long ago, but at
least we hoi polloi will now
have some hope of the Legis-
lature actually acting on our
behalf rather than trying to
please the money boys.
Daisies to all the person-
nel at Madison County Memo-
rial Hospital. How wonderful
to be able to access health care
right here at home instead of
having to drive to Tallahassee,
Valdosta, or points beyond.

In other words. an\ birth date

Plus, it wasn't until rela-

The Reverend Increase
Mather of Boston observed in
1687 that "the early Chris-

nativity on December 25 did
not do so thinking that Christ
was born in that Month, but
'because the Heathens' Satur-
nalia was at that time kept in
Rome, and the \\ ere \\ llin:

who stole what from whom.
And as to whether or not

someone has been fired for

sure it would have made the

Healthy Holiday

Eating On The Run
It is the home stretch of the Holiday season, and we are look-
ing at a weekend of events and celebrations that bring in the New
Year. Many families will be traveling or making stops to visit with
friends and relatives, not to mention the shopping trips to stock up
on next year's holiday supplies. As you go about your busy week-
end, you will of course, be eating and much of it may be fast eating
on the run.
Whether it's fast food, take out or dining at a restaurant, eating
out has become a habit of the American lifestyle. Since most food
eaten out is high in fat and calories, it becomes a challenge to eat
healthy meals. Here are a few tips from the American Dietetics As-
sociation to help guide you to a more nutritious selection from any
Take time to look over the menu and make a careful selection.
Choose fried foods only sometimes go for grilled, broiled or
steamed foods more often.
Order the regular portions of food. Super sized servings are
packed with extra calories.
Split your order. Share fries or an extra large sandwich with
a friend.
For a lighter meal, order an appetizer for your entree.
At a deli, choose lean beef, ham, turkey or chicken on whole
grain bread.
Go easy on condiments, sauces and dressings on sandwiches
or salad.
If there is a salad bar, fill your plate with dark leafy greens,
carrots, peppers and other fresh vegetables. Go light on mayon-
naise-based salads and high fat toppings.
For dessert, choose fresh fruit if it is available or share a high
fat dessert with a friend.
Be size wise about muffins, bagels, croissants and biscuits. A
jumbo muffin has twice the fat grams and calories as the regular
Take along fresh fruit whenever possible. It is a great snack
on the run.
Try to balance your meals throughout the day. Always start
your day with breakfast; research shows that you eat fewer calories
if you don't skip meals. If you have a large meal at lunch, go light
for dinner. Write down what you eat for several days, you will be-
gin to see which foods you are leaving out of your meals. Aim for
a variety and low-fat food more often.

The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 7A

SBi :ig W

In September 1960, I woke up one morn-
ing with six hungry babies and just 75 cents in
my pocket. Their father was gone. The boys
ranged from three months to seven years; their
sister was two. Their Dad had never been
much more than a presence they feared.
Whenever they heard his tires crunch on
the gravel driveway they would scramble to
hide under their beds.
He did manage to leave $15 a week to
buy groceries.
Now that he had decid-
ed to leave, there would be
no more beatings, but no
food either.
If there was a welfare sys-
tem in effect in southern Indi-
ana at that .time, I cer- ..
tainly knew nothing
about it. I scrubbed
the kids until they looked
brand new and then put on my
best homemade dress, loaded
them into the rusty old 51.
Chevy and drove off to find a
The seven of us went to
every factory, store and restaurant in our
small town. No luck.
The kids stayed crammed into the car and
tried to be quiet while I tried to convince
whomever would listen that I was willing to
learn or do anything. I had to have a job..
Still no luck. The last place we went to,
just a few miles out of town, was an old Root
Beer Barrel drive-in that had been converted
to a truck stop. It -\ as called the Big Wheel.
An old lady named Granny owned the
place and' she peeked out of the window from
time to time at all those kids. She needed
someone on the graveyard shift, 11 at night
until seven in the morning. She paid 65 cents
Sanhour. and I could start that night. I raced
home and called the teenager down the street
that baby-sat for people. I bargained w\ ith her
to come and sleep on my sofa for a dollar a
night. She could arrive \ lth her pajamas on
and the kids would already\ be asleep. This
seemed like a good arrange-
ment to her, so we made a deal.
That night when the little
onc, aid I ki.-l tL, say our
prayers. w\e all thanked God for
finding Mommy a job. And soI
started at the Big Wheel.
When I got home in the
mornings I woke the bab\ -sitter
up and sent her home with one
dollar of my tip money -fully
half of what I averaged every
night. As the weeks went by,
heating bills added a strain to
Sm\ meager wage.
The tires on the old Che y
had the consistency\ of penny
balloons and began to leak. I ,
had to fill them with air on the
way to work and again eei ry

One bleak fall morning, I
dragged myself to the car to go
home and found four tires in the
back seat. New tires! There,was

I made a deal with the local
service station. In exchange for
his mounting the new tires, I
would clean up his office. I re-

to scrub his floor than it did for ;un.,s.n Ch,.oo
him to do the tires. l.r.n.hi ioirnl

On Christmas Eve the usual

hanging around after a gig at the Su,.
Legion and were dropping nick-

els in the pinball machine. The regulars all
just sat around and talked through the wee
hours of the morning and then left to get home
before the sun came up.
When it was time for me to go home at
seven o'clock on Christmas morning, to my
amazement, my old battered Chevy was filled
full to the top with boxes of all shapes and
sizes. I quickly opened the driver's side door,
crawled inside and kneeled in the front fac-
ing the back seat.
Reaching back, I pulled off
the lid of the top box. Inside
was whole case of little blue
jeans, sizes 2-10! I looked in-
side another box: It was full of
shirts to go with the jeans.
Then I peeked inside
some of the other
boxes. There was
candy and nuts and bananas
and bags of groceries. There
was an enormous ham for bak-
ing, and canned vegetabless
and potatoes. There w'as
pudding and Jell-O and
cookies, pie filling and flour.
There was hole bag of laundry supplies and
cleaning items. And there were five toy
trucks and one beautiful little doll.
As I drove back through emipty streets as
the sun slo\wl\ rose on the most amazing
Christmas Day of my life, I w-as sobbing with
gratitude. And I \ ill never forget the jo\ on

THE POIIER OF PRAYER. T believe that
God only gives three answers to prayer:
1. "Yes!"
2. "Nct yet.",
3. "I ihat e something bener in inid" .e
God still sits on h throne. the devil is a
liar. You maybe going through a rougih time
right i'it' but God is getting read to bless y'ou
in a i'' Illwit yoiu cannot imagine.

By Nell Dobbs
How truly blessed and warmed we were as
we enteredour Spirit-filled beautifully deco-
rated sanctuary on Sunday and as we wor-
shipped the Baby born in a manger! Preach-
er's message was about Jesus at age twelve as
"He grew in wisdon and stature and in favor
with God and man" and the silent Nears till he
began His rmnistry at thirty. We are to be
about: "our Father's w ork" as Jesus did all His
days all our days.
Sadness was in our midst as we learned of
Appie Beggs' tragic death, the tragic deaths of
four others, and the death of Billie Sue Lut-
trell's mother in Kentucky and we pray com-
fort for all their families each of them, all of
Gladness in the baptism of two toung fel-
lows David and Niko and their testimonies of
salvation. The creative movement by Kristen
Finne\ mo\ed us as she did "Child of God"
and then as TarN n Copeland and Markeshia
Thomas did "O Hold 'Night."
Special thanks to Geoff Hill for filling in
for Bill \w ith announcements and leading mu-
sic. What a super job he did! What a touching
pra\ er!
Bless Preacher's mother as the\ have gone
out to be w% ith her. Bless all other ill ones -Ros-
alie Russell
Hot touched we \ere as Archie Davis
prayed and then as Ray Pike ga\e the benedic-
tion! We are so thankful for all our people -
old, young, in-between, children, and babies.
It's always so good that they are brought to
church Good to see Jeremy and Kelle\ iKin-
sey) Noonan with their little Samuel and a joy
to their family. Preacher likes his red hair. So
\er\ good to see Lex and Deanie Webb and
their Nicole and husband and Grace and hus-
band hadn't see them in so long. Glad for all
visitors and all others.
Special thanks to Billy and all the choirs
for their outstanding performance of their Can-
tata: The Children added much to it.

Don't Drink and Drive,

Did you know that during 2004,

alcohol-related crashes resulted

in 16,694 deaths in the United

States, accounting for 39% of

all traffic fatalities? That's three

times as many people every year,

as were killed on 9/11 and

Americans killed in Iraq so far.

I went to a party, Mom,
I remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Mom,
So I drank soda instead.
I really felt proud inside,
The way you said I would.
I didn't drink and drive, Mom,
Even though others said I should.
I know I did the right thing, Mom,
I know you.are always right.
Now the party is finally ending,
As everyone is driving home tonight.
As I got into my car, Mom,
I knew I'd get home in one piece.
Because of the way you raised me,
So responsible and sweet.
I started to drive away, Mom,
But as I pulled out into the road,
The other car didn't see me, Mom,
And hit me like a load.
As I lay there on the pavement, Mom,
I hear the policeman say,
The other guy is drunk, Mom,
And now I'm the one who will pay.
I'm lying here dying, Mom...
I wish you'd get here soon.
How could this happen to me, Mom?
My life was still in bloom.
There is blood all around me, Mom,
And most of it is mine.
I hear the medic say, Mom,
I'll die in a short time.
I just wanted to tell you, Mom,
I swear I didn't drink.
It was the others, Mom.
The others didn't think.
'He was probably at the same
party as was I.
He's the one that drank,
But I'm the one to die.
Why do people drink, Mom?
It can ruin your whole life.
I'm feeling sharp pains now.
Pains just like a knife.
The guy who hit me is walking, Mom,
And I don't think it's fair.
I'm lying here dying
And all he can do is stare.
Tell my brother not to cry, Mom.
Tell Daddy to be brave.
And when I go to heaven, Mom,
Put "Daddy's Girl" on my grave.
Someone should have told.him, Mom,
S Not to drink and drive.
If only they had told him, Mom,
I'd still be alive.
My breath is getting shorter, Mom.
I'm getting very scared.
Please don't cry for me, Mom.
When I needed you, you were there.
I have one last question
Before I say goodbye.
I didn't drink and drive,Mom,
So, why am I the one to die?

Set Smart Goals For

Set a goal to lose \\eight 20,0,3, 40 pounds and get busy.
It seems straightforward, but goal setting for weight loss is-
n't as simple as it may sound. If you set goals too high, you'll
set yourself up for disappointment. If you don't identify goals,
chances are nothing much will happen.
The November issue of Mayo Clinic Health Letter outlines
a goal-setting approach that supports successful weigh manage-
ment. It's called SMART Specific, Measurable, Artuinable. ;,
Realistic and Trackable.
Specific State exactly what you want to achieve how
you're going to do it and the time frame in which you want to
achieve it. It's helpful to plan a series of small goals tlhat build
on each other instead of one big all-encompassing goal. A small
goal might be to ha\ e at least one serving of fruit each day.
Measurable Be sure you can tell whether you've achieved
a goal. If your goal is to walk 30 minutes.a day, wear a aich
\ while you walk to track the time.
Attainable ask yourself whether the goal is reasonable.
Are you allowing sufficient time and resources? Start slowly
and work your way to.larger goals. Better to succeed at the one
small change this week than try for too much, fail and quit.
Realistic Set goals within your capabilities, andconsider
your limitations. Is it realistic, to plan to exercise two hours
every day'if you've never exercised that much before?
Trackable Look for waysto record your progress, such as
a food journal or exercise log. Tracking our efforts helps keep
you motivated.
Finally, focus on making performance goals rather than out-
come goals. Performance goals such as increasing your veg-
etable intake or walking a specific number of miles each week -
help you achieve a healthy weight each week can lead to frus-
tration and disappointment.

selves. Your only problem will be
choosing which one (or two) was meant

2442 LYDIA One and a half year
old Red Female. Oh, if only Lydia
could talk, the things she would say.
Just look deep into her bright topaz
eyes. There's definitely a message
there. I think what's she saying is that
she'd like to go home with you and be
your special pet......and the best and
most loving friend you'll ever know..
Now that's a lot to read into a look.
You'd better come out and look into Ly-
dia's eyes. Check it out. I'll bet you
see what I see.
2878 SPOT One year old Black
with White Male. Bounce a little, buss
a little, wiggle, jump and strut!!! Spot
has got the routine down pat and his
virtuoso performance is free. A gentle
greeting, a friendly touch.....and maybe
a biscuit if you've got one handy....and
this precious little clown is off and run-
ning, or should I say, dancing his heart
2730 LUCAS One year old Tabby
Male. This cat is so handsome you
won't be able to look away. Gentle and
gracious, he is only looking for a warm
place to stretch out and be ad-
mired....and, well, yes, some delicious
tidbits would be nice.....and, well,
okay, to be waited on hand and foot and
spoiled rotten would be quite accept-
able too. And you know what's amaz-
ing? You'll love doing it.
2808 COCO One year old Calico
Female. This gorgeous girl has still not
recovered from losing the Cat Woman
role in Batman. Imagine some gawky,
human female pretending to be a cat! It
makes the blood run cold. Nothing can
be a cat except a cat, and our Coco is
the best in the business.
2013 CAESAR Eight and a half
month old Black Male. Descendant of
the Imperial Ruler of the glory that was
Rome, Caesar rules again! You just
can't miss the royal bearing, his gra-
cious acceptance of tribute and, if he
only had a few legions, he could con-
quer the world. But I'm getting carried
away. Our Caesar's only wish is to
conquer your heart and rule your
