By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Law officers are looking for the driver of a
Ford bubble 'an. which had been converted

number is EOOO WR and it is a Leon County
The man, who used both the names Donald
Wood and Donald Brown, said that he had
trailers for sale.
According to Robert Adam, son of. the
owner of the Deerwood Inn, the suspect un-
hooked trailers at the campground and messed
. up the hookups and the lattice around there. He
also got $70 to move a trailer from one of the
maids at the hotel. The trailer was never
moved. Another victim paid him $400.
Adam said that the man absconded with
the money and left owing the Deerwood Inn
five days rent.
The man said that he would buy a motor
home from another man, but he couldn't get it

Mart, planned for construction on Highway 53

hand representing Wal-Mart. They indicated

economies in small areas. Gabriel pointed out
that Gov. Jeb Bush had designated Madison as

Traffic Stop Results

In Drug Bust
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A traffic stop on Interstate 10 on Saturday,
August 19, resulted in a drug bust for Cpl.
David Harper, of the Interstate Criminal En-
forcement (ICE) Unit.
According to a Madison County Sheriff's
OTfice report, at 8 a.m. that morning, Cpl.
David Harper was working traffic enforcement
when he spotted a 1997 Chrysler, driven by
Kikora Levesha Palmer, of Ft. Pierce, and oc-
cupied by De Mario Murray and Alonzo Lee,
both from Tallahassee. He stopped the car for a
traffic violation.
While talking with Palmer, Harper began
to detect signs of criminal activity. Harper is-
sued Palmer a written warning for the traffic vi-
olation and then asked for consent to search the
Chrysler. The request was denied.
Harper then used his K-9 "Nitro" to con-
duct a free air sniff around the vehicle. Nitro

Looking At

Cold Cases
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On Augu.s 23, 1970, Quincy Lammons
was killed in Madison County. He was the vic-
tim of an admitted hit put out on him by Marie
Johnson, his mother-in-law at the time. Lam-
mons' gravestone, in Lee Memorial Cemetery,
has a picture of him holding his daughter, Pen-
ny, in his lap.
Questions from the case arise:
Why would Walter Lewis Roussert, the
hired hit man, plead guilty to first degree mur-
der and only get sentenced for second degree
murder, along with Marie Johnson? Why
would Billy Truluck, who apparently went and
got the hit man for Marie Johnson, only be sen-
tenced to time served for the murder?
Valerie Straughter was found dead on July
13, 1990. A report had come in that someone

Is It Politics

I Ain't Dead Yet!
Okay, .I admit it. I really needed the laugh, even if it did
come at the expense of my ears being pierced with a forbidden
curse word.
I was having a bad Tuesday afternoon. I was gloomy and de-
pressed. Okay, I'll also admit that I'm still gloomy. and de-
pressed. The words from a Carpenters' song kept playing in my
mind and. I quoted it to my fellow reporter. Jesse. "Hanging
around/Some kind of lonely clown/Rainy days and Mondays al-
Ways bring me down." That's when Jesse threw a rat on me.
Okay, the rat wasn't a real live rat. It was a rubber mouse
that she had bought at Wal-Mart the night before. I felt so-
igloomy that I didn't even flinch.
"It sucks to be me," I looked at Jesse and said.
The next thing that happened, however, blew my mind.
,Jesse, acting under instructions from our office instigator. Lisa
Greene, put the rat on Susan's desk. Susan grabbed her mouse,.
only she grabbed the rubber mouse. .
The scream that penetrated the building will haunt me in my
nightmares for years to come.
, I laughed my head off. I needed the laugh. The Bible says.
"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine." For a brief moment
jn time, my heart was merry.

As Usual?

Dear Local Ministers/Other Interested Party:

As you might have already heard, there are several problems
that plague our community and need our immediate attention.
One that is top priority no,. is that of the education of our chil-
dren and where it is headed. We should ask ourselves, "are all'
the decisions being made on their behalf in the child's best in-
terest?" Or is it "POLITICS" as usual at our children's expense?
The people whom we elect to make the best decisions for
our children are accountable to us. after all. we are the ones
whom our children call "mommie" and "daddy." Hasen't we al-
ways taught them, that if there w\as a problem, that we would be
there for them. Well guess swhatr? There are problems right now
that our children just don't understand and see as problems. This
is the reason we have to stand in the gap for them beginning this
It is obvious that people are being sought after and strategi-
cally placed in educational positions in our schools that are not
necessarily in the best interest of our children. We get comfort in
know ing that when Ne drop our children off to school. w\e are
entrusting them to people who \\ ill look out for them and it does
help if it is someone \\ho is duly qualified, among those w\e drop
them off to. We ha\e qualified people right here in our own
county. w ho is more than willing to be placed in such positions.
but are being overlooked, and \we need an answer. NOW! Poli-
tics has it place, but may I suggest to you, that it is not to be used
in our public schools, because of ho\w we personally feel about
another indi\ idual. All of our children are entitled to a free and
appropriate public education.
.As,,a direct result of the abote and this is only sha\ ing the
'ice berg, \.e are calling a community meeting onthe Fourth Sun-
day. August 27, 2006 at 6:00 p.m. in the basement of Shiloh
MI.B. Church, located on NILK Street. Madisoi, Florida. You are
encouraged to come out and voice your concerns and wsays that
we can amicably get them resolved. Remember. "'Smiling faces
don't always tell the truth, they sometimes tell lies and-I've got
proof." We can no longer be patted on the back, ushered out of
Meetings because someone feels that they can turn on the charm-
because they think we as black people are so hungry for affec-
tion/attention that we will fake any move to get it. I urge you to
be aware of the pat on the back, it just might hold you back.
It, is a well know n fact throughout-the community that our
elected superintendent is not acting solo when it comes to exe-
"uti'fig 'her dbties.'She' I being' hedsVily 'influenced, if not over
powered by another source/person. Because someone just hap-
pens to be of another race, does not necessarily mean that they
are the best choice for our children. The interviewing process
should be arranged so that each and every applicant is given an
equal chance, but instead it is set up to be just a charade where
the applicant is already selected and others are just wasting their
time. What a mockery of the Justice Department when they
themselves say any other process, other than the above, makes
this School system become NOT "An Equal Opportunity Em-
ployer." That is against the law, simply put, it's called discrimi-
nation and we as a collective group WILL have to find a means
of fixing it, permanently. We don't need a quick fix band aid so-
lution, because as we are all aware, they have outbreaks over
and over again. We have been called out, let's answer. Let's stop
the sabotaging of our people so that others less, qualified could
get positions replacing already qualified people.
I am looking forward to you being present and please bring
another interested party. It is in numbers that we get matters of
this magnitude resolved. .I

Love, Peace and Power,

Mind Change About

Restaurant Responsibility
I lied. In an earlier column, Isaid that restaurants are not re-
sponsible for providing healthy choices for their patrons. At the
time, I truly believed that. But I've had a change of mind and
heart. Restaurants do need to accept some praise or blame for the
health of our ditizenr. .
What brought about this reversal? Easy; I saw an advertise-
mnent for Kentucky Fried .Chicken's nes, potato bowl. In case
Aou don't know about this concoction it is a bowl of mashed
potatoes topped with kernels of corn topped % with chunks of fried
chicken topped with gra\ N and maybe cheese or Texas toast or
some other starch. In other %w ords, this is a container filled with
cholesterol just w% waiting to clog our arteries,
Are they tryIng too kill us? One potato bowl can wreck the
health of a person w ho ma\ have a heart problem or who is re-
co ering from a stroke. Who thought this up an% way? You don't
serve corn (a starch i and potatoes (another starch i in the same
meal. much less in the same bowl. Why 'can't the chicken be
grilled or broiled instead of fried? Topping this with cheese or
gra\N is tantamount to homicide.
KFC seems to be breaking out with unhealthy menu items.
At the ones in Columbus. Ga., signs are introducing the new
country-fried steak sand\ ich as well.as the potato bowls. Are
the\ trying to kill us?
I'm not picking on KFC. At least the\ offer a choice of slaw
or green beans with your dinner, something to help turn the
starch\ stuff into \itamins or funerals helpful to the body. At
Wendy's the customer can order a salad and can choose yogurtt
instead of fries. But their salespeople constantly in% ite you to
"biggie" size \our order b\ increasing the size of fries or soda.
That should not even be an option. Nobody in this country needs.
more fiies or soda than they already ingest. Why not offer some
apple slices or grapes instead?
Not long aeo. while dining at Ken's Barbecue. I noticed a,
family at a booth across from me. The son. about nine years old.
had ordered chicken tenders (fried) with fries. He w as dipping
his fries into a mix of ketchup and mayonnaise, and his tenders
into a vat-sized bowl of ranch dressing. Granted. his parents
should have directed him toward more nutritious choices,. but
the restaurantdoes not provide any choice of orange slices,
peach slices, unsweetened applesauce, or other items that might
lead to better nutrition.
After watching this child damage his 'heart for years to
come, and seeing the deadly) potiato bowl,'Icame to the decision
that yes. restaurants do bear some' responsibility for h'_tih e Sf .
Americans, We can try to make w' ise choices, but we can order
only what the menu offers. Those menus should reflect the de-
sire and need of many patrons to eat a balanced meal without
overloading on starches and carbohy rates.
I understand that these companies are in the. business of
making money. But where's the profit in killing off their cus-
tomers? Some menu changes would guarantee- them a longeri-
lived. more satisfied clientele, and would yield healthier citizens
in better physical and medical condition.
You can peel the skin off your chicken, leave the butter off
your baked potato, eat salads instead of baked beans, and take
half your dinner home to the dog. But only the most determined
nutrition-watcher can manage healthy eating without some help.
I believe that the restaurants have a mandate to help. Getting rid
of that horrible potato bowl would be a start. Adding fruits and
vegetables would be a step forward. I have no hope of getting
my RedOnion chili dog on a wheat bun, but that's a chance I'm
% tilling to take about once a month. At least I can have slaw with
it. '
We as customers must let restaurants know that we expect
more nutritious choices' on the menu. Then the ball is in the
caf6'scourt. I hope our restaurants will accept their share of the
deal. Here's to a healthier America.

The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 3A

All Credit Cards Are Not Equal
A week can barely go by without at least one credit card of-
fer arriving in the mail. Most of you may get multiple offers
each week tempting you to switch to another card company or'
open up a new credit account. You need to be cautious howev-
er, because changing credit cards is not a game that will increase
your financial health. And, it often increases the amount of
money you owe over time.
It is hard to compare credit offers because the terms are all
different. Each company makes their credit offer sound like the
best deal; it's often like comparing apples to oranges. A recent
survey by Consumer Action found most companies are increas-
ing the costs you pay. Before you start switching cards, read the
-fine print that comes with the credit offer and look at the fol-
lowing features to compare differences..
Introductory rates: Three out of four cards issuers offer
low APRs (annual percentage rates) to new card holders. The
average introductory interest.rate on purchases is about 3.6r%
and the a\ erage for transferred balances is 3.9%. Most of these-
low rates, however, are only in effect for a short period of time.
Read the fine print and you will discover the true annual per-
centage rate you will end up with for the card. Chances are it,
may be a higher rate than you have on your current credit card.
Cash advances: Two-thirds of cards'change higher interest,
rates for cash advances an average of 19.2-7'- compared, to
11.73% for purchases. Cash advances begin accruing interest
immediately, even for cardholders who pa\ off their balances in
.full. Often times, the APR is reasonable, but a cash ad\ ance is
higher. While we are on this topic, those blank checks that
.sometimes come with \our monthly statement encouraging ou
to pay other bills are just another forin of a cash ad\ ance. It's
best to shred them and not use them for bill payments.
Late fees: Nearly three-fourths of card issuers will hit you
with a late fee if your payment is not received on the due date.
Late fees range from $10- $35, with half charging around $29.
Somewhere in the small print a late fee charge is listed. The les-
son from this reality pay your bills on time!
Penalty APRS: If you don't pay on time, late fees are not
the only penalty you face. Most card companies charge a high-
er penalty interest rate for customers who make one or more late
pa> ments. From that point forward, you are charged a higher in-.
terest rate on the balance you owe.
Risk-based rates: A growing number of credit card issuers
will not quote a firm ARP until they have screened 'the appli-
cant's credit history. Thipracice allows. :liem to.charge a high-
e'r rgtqto ghrisk boropny.es, ouy n be.,Qfered the
lowest advertised rate. Only direct mailed pre-screened appli-
cants get a firm APR before applying for a card. .
Not all credit cards are equal, read the fine print before you
ever open or change a credit card. Get the best terms you can ne-
gotiate, always pay your bill on time, and refrain from frequent-
ly changing, credit cards.

What is wrong with us? Why do we even give a rat's bottom,
what Mel Gibson thinks? Wh\ do we act stunned that he uttered
discriminatory remarks when he was driving apparently under
the influence?
Mel Gibson is a movie 'star. Yippee. He is a'man who gets
paid a lot of money to act like someone else who is nofhimself.
He makes a lot of money has a lot of kids, and likes to think he
owns Malibu.
,.,,,So.why dowe.care?, Wh are we suddenly\ blaming'him for
wars and riots and the downfall of civilization because % e now
know what he's really like?
Gibson, just in case you have not been watching one of your
favorite cable channels or reading People magazine this week,
was picked 'up for driving under the influence and then, rumor
has it, he uttered some horrific racial slurs and acted as if he
owns Malibu, California .
Here's some big news ... Mel Gibson is just'a man. He's a
man who has had a successful career because we have all paid a
lot of money to go see his movies, rent his movies, buy his
movies, and wonder what it might be like to meet him in person.
Well, we have now met Mel Gibson and enough already.
Get a life, America. Get a grip. Get a new hobby. Let me re-
peat Mel Gibson is just a man.

In the United States of America, we pay people lots of mon-

In the United States of America, we also pay people a lot of
money to act like someone else. Think about this.
It's embarrassing to have to even write about Mel Gibson
yet again, but really, come on now, shouldn't we be more wor-
ried about the price of gas, Lebanon, dying soldiers, poverty,
women's rights, child abuse, the next election and the fact that
hospice workers, teachers, and social workers get paid far, far
less than actors and ball throwers?
Did it ever even occur to us to think that maybe it wasn't
even Mel Gibson who got pulled over after allegedly drinking
half of Southern California?
Maybe he was just acting like a spy. Maybe he was rehears-
ing. Maybe he was still in the middle of his last role. Maybe he
was just another man who has a few problems.

This Tuesday morning, though very hot now, began slightly

think, a reprint of the following poem is quite appropriate -
Southern Fried Summer
Summer-frazzled days glistened on sweat-dripping brows,
Heat-rashI fretful children whined about their mothers'. knees,
Weather-w illed gardens drooped sadly on sun-scorched rows,
Even Mother Nature felt chili-pepper hot;
All humanity sagged as one, a soggy mass of huddled misery,
Under August skies and red-hot sun hanging hosnlel. humid
Over a planet crackling-fried and helpless, mutely dismayed
As, without surcease, mugg\ nights followed
On heels of heated daN s marching without mercy across the

I was friends with this woman for over 20 years. We only
had one falling out years back, when I disagreed with her about
some guy she was dating. At the time, she stopped talking to me
for a year. Now, we've had another disagreement over her hus-
band. He's the stepfather to her two kids. Let's just say he was
overzealous in disciplining one of them. I mean, Uncle Blunt,
the kid had bruises where the man hit him! I was horrified and
told my friend so. After that, she seemed to be pulling away
from me, hardly taking my calls, etc. A few days ago, when I
called, she angrily told me, "Don't ever call this house again,"
and hung up. Should I have kept my mouth shut?

No, you did the right thing in speaking up. I think your re-
action was more from shock than anything else. And you voiced
your shock and disbelief. Who wouldn't? I mean, it's the last
thing you expect to see. And if your friend and you have had
close, intimate conversations in the past, I would think it's un-
derstood that you were well within the boundaries of saying
Based on all these close prior conversations and the years
you've been friends, you weren't out of line at all. Now your
friend knows how you feel. She can either reach across and ask
you for your help, or try to solve this situation herself. There's
not much else you can do, I'm afraid. But you can keep an opeh
eye and ear. If you see this sort of thing happening again, then
call your local child abuse hotline. Or perhaps even call one of
your friend's family members and get them involved (if it is
abuse). Your friend may be in an abusive relationship herself and
feeling cornered. However, if it all appears to be something al-
together different and not abuse, then who really cares what your
friend thinks? You were being a good friend.

something that had been thrown from the overpass. They ad-
vised the officer that they had seen several subjects on top of the
overpass throwing some type of object. When they stopped to
check the damage, they found that it was eggs. While Sergeant
St. John was talking to these victims, he got a report that some-
one had been throwing objects off the 249 overpass also. Deputy
Junior Smith and Live Oak Police Officer Justin Bates were dis-
patched to the area and stopped a dark colored pickup headed

ris home now, after being in Madison Hospital;
Don Bass, recovering from surgery in South
Georgia; Tommy Henderson; Patti Olson not
doing good at all; Leanna Gay, now at Lake
Park and waiting for knee surgery in Septem-
ber, for Sue Downing in rehab in Tallahassee;
rather distressing how things have come about,
that one cannot learn about ill ones Preacher
said he wished to see Sue Downing-no one
there by that name. That's how she's known-

and he jokingly said it to Bubba
Greene, "What's your name?"
"Bubba" he replied. Preacher
,said be sure and sign it that way.
He also said he knew "Jargo's"
name. We thought it something
that I could not even sign. Mar-
jell in rehab as his wife became
our daughter, has power of attor-

ney for him.
Remember the wedding of Leigh Sherrard
and Kevin McNutt Saturday, August 26th at
7:00 p.m. at our'church. Happy 100th birthday
to Sue Raines on Wednesday, August 23rd with
a celebration on Sunday. Happy birthday to
Dot Hires and Gean McCullough this week.
Activities at church are back in full swing after
summer vacation and school beginning!

big part of the offense Friday night against Union Coun-

Union County will
play here at Boot Hill
Stadium Friday night.
According to head Cow-
boy football coach
Frankie Cairroll, Union
County is always ready to
play Madison County.
The Cowboys are once
again the favorites to not
only win the district but
to go all the way to the
state finals. This places a
target on the backs of the
boys. They are THE team
to beat.
"Union County has a
lot of tradition and are al-
ways tough," Carroll
Carroll said the
Cowboys are going to
open it up this Friday.
"We didn't show much of
our offense against Trini-
ty Christian," Carroll
said. "We're going to
open it up a little bit."
Carroll ,,said Union
County used to run the
wing-T. He said he
watched a game film of
UC's kick-off game anid
they were using a spread-
type offense. UC beat-
Santa Fe in the kick-off
Carroll said he
thought both quarter-

Lys Up
backs did very well
against Trinity Catholic.
Daniel Sanders, the Cow-
boy place-kicker had a
rough night against Trini-
ty. Sanders missed two
point-after kicks and also
a field goal. Carroll gave
JV kicker Victor Bellera a
chance in th6 second half.
Bellera also missed the
PAT. "Daniel is new arid
he's working hard." Car-
roll said. "He kicks pretty
well in practice."

FOR ThE Cowboys

Carroll is looking for,
good things against UC
from Tony Brown. He
expects Bernard Brinson
to step it up as well as
Harry Reddick and
Travis Arnold.
Defensive Coordina-
tor Rod Williams is hop-
ing the whole defense
steps up Friday night..
"We made some er-
rors against Trinity
Catholic," Williams said.
"We made some mental

errors and blew a couple
of coverages in the sec-
Williams felt his
guys did a good job cov-
ering the number-one
quarterback and the num-
ber-one wide receiver in
the state. 'The JV 'de-
fense was pretty spunky,"
Williams said.
Williams expects
Union County to run the
ball. "We're going to
tweak the defense a little

bit Friday night,"
Williams said. "Our main
concern is stopping the
run and making., them
throw the ball."
Union County has a
young quarterback; C.J.
Spiller, UC's hot quarter-
back from the 2005 sea-
son, graduated.
Come out and sup-
port this great Madison
County football team.
Game time is 7:30 p.m.
Go Cowboys!

"We struggled a little on
offense," Aucilla Christian
head football coach Joe
Striplin said. "But the de-
fense played well. We got
the shut out."
Aucilla Christian faced
Carrabelle in a kick-off jam-

Striplin said for an opening
game it went well but there
is plenty to work on.

Striplin said.
Seventh-grade quarter-

good night according to
Striplin. Bishop rushed for
31 yards in six carries, re-
covered a fumble and ran for
45 yards as well as having
an interception.
Also playing well for the

Goats Are A Growing Industry In Madison County

By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Ever wondered what goat
tastes like? Well, it doesn't taste
like chicken. Madison County
Extension Agent Kevin Camp-
bell said goat tastes a lot like
venison. According to FAMU
Small Farms Management Spe-
cialist Phillip Petway, goat has a
good, 'lean, meaty taste and is
not fatty at all. Randy
Buchanan, goat producer from.
Madison County, says goat'
tastes like a milder venison and
if people would eat more goat,
they'd probably be healthier be-
cause it's lean and has a lower
cholesterol content. Meat goat
farms are popping up all over
the state and the county. These
farmers are hoping to make goat
a part of everyone's diet.
The U.S. Department of
Agriculture said there are more
than 1,700 farms raising goats'
in Florida. Campbell said in
Madison County there are ap-
proximately 100 goat producers
raising from 25-35 goats with
several producers raising larger
herds. Buchanan runs about 75
head. Buchanan's goats are

mainly Boer crosses. Buchanan-
said he likes to cross the Boer
meat goat with a Nubian goat.
"It gives you a goat with a big-
ger frame, more meat and more
milk," Buchanan said, "The'
Boer goat has done a lot to pro-
mote goats. Boer goats did for
goats what the Angus did for.
According to Campbell one
of the main advantages of rais-
ing goats, especially on small
acreage, is they provide a better
cash-flow crop. Campbell said
they are not necessarily more
profitable, they just promote a
better cash flow. The reason is a
cow gestates 284 days, almost
,10 months, while a goat gestates
five months. Goats also have
multiple births. Typically, a calf
is sold when it is six to seven
months old, while a kid is ready
for market in only four or five
mn[i-irhs Instead of' marketing
one calf in a two-year period,
the farmer is able to offer two
kids in only one year. "You
might not get as much money in
one lick," Campbell said, "but
more checks. That equals a bet-
ter cash flow."

I 0 A

Buchanan sells his young
bucks when they are around 50
pounds. He says that's about a
four or five-month old goat.
Campbell said goats are
also more economical to care
for. They eat less and forage
well off 'unimproved land.-
Goats are browsers. They will
eat sand spurs, briars and 'they
love kudzu vines. Campbell
said kudzu is phenomenal for-
age. It's a legume comparable to
alfalfa Another advantage with
the 'small* size is the number of
animals that can be supported
qn one acre. Campbell said the
formula is one cow per acre.and.
Gfie goals to an acre., Buchanan
said he runs his goats in a
coastal field. "They. leave the
grass blades alone,", Buchanan
said. "They eat the seeds off the
grass and clean up the weeds."
Goats cost less to buy, cost
less to care for and farmers
don't need expensive equip-
ment to handle goats. "A farmer
can put four or five kids in the
back of the truck with no need
for a trailer,"' Campbell said.-
And because they are
small, they don't need compli-
cated pens, loading chutes or a
flock of cowboys to ear tag,
worm and castrate. "You can. set
up and run for less," Campbell
Campbell said the greatest
market for goats locally is in
the ethnic groups. "In our area
it's hard to say' which is the
largest market, the Hispanics,
the middle-easterners or the is-

Buchanan sells most of his
goats right off the farm. Some-
times he takes his bucklings to
Townsend Live Stock Market,
the local cow sale barn.
Townsends holds their goat
sale the fourth Friday of the
month. There is also another
live stock market inLake City
that auctions goats, the North
Florida Livestock Market in
Ellisville. Buchanan has also
run loads down to Orlando to
the Ali Meat Market, where
they deal in large amounts of
.goat meat.
When taking goats to mar-
ket, they need to be tested and
ear-tagged for Scrapies.
Scrapies is a disease of sheep
and goats and the USDA re-
quires official identification on
sheep and goats before they
cross state lines or are commin-
gled with other animals at
shows or markets.
According to Campbell,
there is a growing local aware-
ness and interest in goat meat.
He' been .receiving more
phone calls about it. "There is a
perception, that goat is a
healthier meal." Campbell
said. "No%\ I'm not a dietician,
but it's supposed to be lower in
fat and cholesterol."
If you're interested in rais-
ing goats, there will be' a meet-
ing of the Madison County
Goat Producers at the Madison
County Extension Office on
Sept. 14 at 7 p.m. You can also
check out the Florida Meat
Goat Association Website lo-
cated at www.fmga.org.

What To Do When The Cows Get Out

Recently the man of the house had to deal
with a catastrophe at his job. He's a cowboy,
packs up the dogs and the horse in the morning
and rides through herds of cows all day roping
and doctoring sick cows. Some days, he rounds
them up for sorting and shipping. It's hard work,
but a great and interesting lifestyle. The catastro-
phe came late in the afternoon, quite a
few cows got out and into the peanut
field! They'd scarfed their way I H
through many acres, before their. es-
cape was noticed. Then came the. hard
part... catching them. /
There's a bunch of ways to catch
cows. In Florida, because of the dense
undergrowth, palmetto and woods,
catching loose cows must include
dogs. There's an old story about catch-
ing cows. I've heard it several places.
A Florida rancher had five or six rank cows
out in a large heavily wooded and brushy pasture
that he had been trying to pen for several months.
Desperate, he called a "cowboy." The cowboy
said he'd be glad to come catch the cows, but it
would cost $100. The rancher was floored, but
desperate, so he agreed.
The cowboy showed up with his horse and
one dog. The rancher laughed. "You're never
gonna catch them cows by yourself," he said. "I
figured for 100 dollars I'd get more than one
The cowboy told the rancher not to worry.
He'd manage. He took his dog into the brush. It
nosed out those rank cows in just a few minutes.

With the dog biting at their heels and Mr. Cow-
boy cracking his whip, the cows were penned in
about 10 minutes. The cowboy went to the ranch-
er and asked for his $100. "I'm not paying that,"
the rancher exclaimed. "It only took you 10 min-
The cowboy calmly walked over to the pen,
opened the gate and let the cows out.
They took, off running in five different
,directions and were quickly lost from
view. The rancher was beside himself.
"Gold-damed it!" He yelled. "Why'd
you go and do that?"
The cowboy'was loading his
horse and dog into the trailer. ',"If you
think it's so easy, you do it," he said."
"Now you know gosh darned
well I can't," the rancher said. "That's
why I called you. Now get out there and round up
those cows."
"Be glad to," the cowboy said. "But now it'll
cost you $200."
The rancher fumed, but he paid it. He knew
when to quit.
The story has a point. Catching cows in
Florida is very hard and should only be handled
by professionals. Cows can be dangerous.
They're big, some have horns and they rarely
wish to do what you want them to. When they get
upset, they will mow you down, shove you into a
fence, trample you and stict those horns into any
part of your anatomy they can reach. So build
your pens strong and if the cows get out, call a.

"We were only about

Jones said. "On our way to

Keystones: They Support More Than You Think

What do alligators, go-
pher tortoises, and red-cockad-
ed woodpeckers have in com-
mon? They are all "keystone
species" found in the Okefeno-
kee National Wildlife Refuge.
Just as an architectural key-,
stone holds a stone arch to-
gether, certain keystone (ani-
mal) species hold much of the
Okefenokee biological com-
munity together. Keystone
species enrich habitats by their
activities, and are critical for
the survival of other species.
Like a key'stone in a stone
arch. a keystone species holds
the rest of the animal commu-
nity together: if you 'remove
the keystone, everything else
would collapse. In Okefeno-
kee, alligators, gopher tortois-
es, and red-cockaded wood-
peckers indirectly affect the
survival of many other animal
species.'- The loss of any of
these. keystone species can
lead to the disappearance of
other species, eventually lead-
ing to the collapse of the na-
tive habitat community.
Just like anywhere else on,
the planet, animals, which live
in the Okefenokee National
Wildlife Refuge, need food,
water, shelter, and territory in
order to survive. If their habi-.
tat is missing any' one of these
components, they must adapt
(not easy). move iif the\ cani
or perish. The gopher tortoise

is a keystone species because
of underground burrows they
dig, which can be upwards to
40' long and have a constant
cooler temperature. The bur-
rows provide shelter for other
animals during periods of ex-
treme heat, drought, or in the
event of fire. Over 50 species
of animals, including the east-
ern indigo snake, eastern dia-
mondback rattlesnake, and the,
gopher frog, have been found
to inhabit gopher tortoise bur-
rows. It's not a stretch to say
that many animal species
would surely suffer if it wasn't
for the gopher tortoise.
Alligators are another
keystone' species in Okefeno-
kee. The wallows that they
dig, dubbed "gator holes," also
serve as pools and feeding ar-
eas for fish, birds, and turtles
, during low water. Their prox-
imity. to wood stork and other
wading bird rookeries uninten-
tionally provide protection of
eggs from predatory, animals,
such as raccoons. The alliga-
tors are themselves rewarded,
when a juvenile fledgling fails
to learn how to fly, and instead
finishes by becoming a tasty
meal for the patient gator.
The Endangered Red-
cpckaded woodpecker (RCW)
is also keystone species be.-
cause the cavities they create
in pine trees also serve as
homes for snakes, flying squir-

rels, and other woodpeckers.
The disappearance of RCW's
and their cavities would cause
more than four dozen other
wildlife species to suffer great-
ly and possibly disappear
Scientists can use a key-
stone species as an indicator of
environmental health. Protect-
ing keystone species is now
becoming .a priority for pre-
serving wildlife 'diversity.
Some conservationists suggest
that by using the Endangered
Species Act to protect key-
stone species, other dependant
species will also benefit. Be-
cause of the important roles
these keystone species have in
maintaining, ecosystem in-
tegrity, targeting them for pro-,
tection and conservation pro-
vides excellent opportunities
to maintain or restore whole
As we learn more about
our planet, we are discovering
fascinating connections about
the world around us. Yet, this
is really no secret. The natural-
ist John Muir said it best over
one hundred years ago: "as
soon as we take one thing by
itself, we find it hitched to
everything else in the uni-
verse". If society cannot pro-
tect its keystone species, then
the rest of the animal kingdom
might collapse, just like a bro-
ken arch.

Sturgeon Strike Injures Two Lake City Residents

A jumping sturgeon on the
Sutannee Ri'er injured two
boaters Saturday afternoon
near Sun Springs on the border
of Gilchnst and Lety coun-
Cheyenne Russ, 9, and an-
other female passenger, both
of Lake City, were struck by
the fish.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) Officer Dorvan Daniel
witnessed the strike.
"I saw this vessel, operat-
ed by Scott Lockwood of Lake
City, coming toward me at
about 30 miles per 'hour. I
watched as the-fish jumped out
of the water and heard the im-
pact when it hit. The child was
knocked out of the boat and
into the water," Daniel said.
"The boat stopped immediate-
ly and I began shouting at the

Phone: 850-948-7891
Cell: 850-973-7135
Fax: 850-948-2482

operator to get the little girl.
She was treading water and
screaming for help."
The people on board
pulled the child onto the ves-
sel and brought her to Daniel.
"I had a first aid kit on
board my boat and began
treating her. We got Lock-
wood's vessel over to a nearby
boat ramp and met up with
Levy County Emergency
Medical Services. Another
person on board also had been
struck by the fish and suffered
a broken arm," Daniel said.
Both boaters were trans-
ported to Shands Hospital in
The group put into the
Suwannee at Sandy Point and
had been on the river about 45
minutes when the strike oc-
curred. Sun Springs, also
known as Aiken Springs, is

about six miles north of the
town of Wilcox.
Prior to this incident,
FWC officials had begun
working on a public awareness
campaign to alert boaters to
the risks of jumping sturgeons.
"We are preparing to post
signs along the Suwannee at
each boat ramp, explaining the
risk of impacts with these
fish," said Maj. Bruce Hamlin,
regional commander for
FWC's North Central Region.
"Boaters have been seriously
injured when hit by these fish.
This is the sixth reported stur-
geon strike this summer. We
want to make the public aware
that these fish are in the
Suwannee and they do jump.
We recommend boaters reduce
their speed to reduce 'the risk
of impact."
Biologists are unsure as to
why sturgeon jump. The fish
winter in the Gulf of Mexico
and enter the Suwannee in the
summer and fall months to
spawn. They can grow to, 8
feet in length and weigh up to
200 pounds. Sturgeon are a
protected species and cannot
be harvested.

sions, call 1-888-404-FWCC

Friday, August 25, 2006

As Labor Day Weekend
closes out the summer season,
the National Safe Boating
Council (NSBC) reminds
boaters that the summer long
"Be a Survivor!" contest is
also winding down with the fi-
nal deadline for entries Sep-
tember 4, 2006. For two more
weeks, boaters across the coun-
try can still submit their "sur-
vival" stories and earn the
chance to win one of several
boating package surprises,
courtesy of West Marine, as
well as the opportunity to have
their story nationally pub-
Launched during National
Safe Boating Week in May, the
contest is NSBC's latest inno-
vation designed to promote key
safety measures to the more
than 78 million recreational
boaters who take to the water
each year. As spokesperson,
former Survivor star and Navy
SEAL Rudy Boesch invites
recreational boaters across the

country to share their personal
stories of how they've been
saved by a life jacket.
Entries may be submitted
online at www.SafeBoating-
Campaign.com or by visiting
any West Marine store nation-
As the last big "boating
weekend" of the traditional
summer boating season, Labor
Day weekend is the perfect op-
portunity to reach mass num-
bers of boaters with an invita-
tion to participate in the con-
test. "This initiative arises from
our overall objective of high-
lighting boating safety behav-
iors particularly life jacket
wear that could save lives on
the water," says Virgil Cham-
bers, Executive Director of the
NSBC. "When boaters are tak-
ing responsibility for their safe-
ty and the safety of their pas-
sengers," Chambers says.
"everyone wins."
Winners of the "Be a Sur-
vivor!" contest will be an-

The NSBC reminds all boaters of the importance
of wearing their lifevest this boating season.

nounced on October 15, 2006.
Prizes include a two-person in-
flatable Skedaddle kayak, a
Weekend Water Sports Pack-
age, and two Comfort Series
inflatable belt pack personal
floatation devices (PFDs).
Their stories will also be pub-
lished in NSBC's book, Saved
By the Jacket.
As annual boating fatali-
ties have decreased, the per-
centage due to neglecting life
jacket wear has risen 96 per-
cent of boaters who drowned in
2004 were NOT wearing life
The NSBC hopes to re-
verse this trend by raising
boater awareness of advances
in the modern life jacket. Of-
fering the latest technological
innovations, current models
can be customized fpr specific
water activities and outings
without sacrificing comfort or
freedom of movement.
