Tuesday, September 19, a smoker caught on fire in the
smokehouse adjacent to Pinetta Market at 128 Belleville Rd.
According to one of the owners, Bill Washington, there was

little damage. "We had more people out here than we had
fire," Washington said. "
The alarm brought fire firefighters from both Cherry
Lake and Madison. Madison sent a tanker truck, according
to Madison City firefighter Earnie Johnson The alarm came
in at 1:42 p.m. Scott Singletary of Cherry Lake I was the first
one to the fire.
"There was some fire in the rafters and some flames
when I.got there," Singletary said. "I used a booster line off
the truck to put it out." Singletary added that Sam Washing-
ton pretty much had it out by the time he got there.
Bill Washington said his brother Sam was at the store
when the fire occurred. "Sam had it out before the fire trucks
got here," Bill Washington said.
The only damage was to the smoker. The smokehouse it-
self is just fine. "It messed the smoker up, but there was very
little damage," Bill Washington said. "We're having a big
fire sale."
"They had some pretty well-done Boston butts in there,"
Singletary said.

County Commission Drops


Millage To 9.25 Mills
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
For the first time in seven years, Madison County's
village has dropped from 10 mills. This time, it dropped
almost a mill, to 9.25 mills.
According to Tim Sanders, Clerk of the Court, the
lowered millage is the result of taxable value on property
going up. He said that the last time the village had been
dropped was a minute change. He said that this year's
lowered rate should be evident to the taxpayer.
"The current year's taxable value is $640,710,265,"
Sanders said, "and the past year's value is $512,301,315."

Lake Francis Could Be

Headed For A Train Wreck
By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
According to Madison County Farm Extension Agent Kevin
Campbell, Lake Francis could be headed for a train wreck. The current
weather conditions, long cloudy days, combined with the heat of sum-
mer and an overstocking of fish, could cause a giant fish kill.
Madison City Manager Tom Moffses said 40 years ago just such
conditions occurred, and the fish kill was so bad, dead fish had to be
hauled off by the truckload.
Currently, Lake Francis is turning a yucky brown color. Campbell
said this could be the result of several things in conjunction with each
other. "It's very possibly an algae issue," Campbell said. "But it's also
probably a fertility issue. And one thing could be exacerbating the oth-
er."
The fertility issue is the changing of the Ph level of the lake. Runoff
from all the rain lately has been turning the lake water more acidic.
Campbell said this is because the soil in Madison County is acidic.
When the water becomes more acidic, it actually turns brown. Lake

Estelle Warren And The Age Factor
I attended a gospel sing last Friday night at Bible Deliver-
ance Church in Madison. w here I met an elderly woman, who
Was as full of vinriahd \igor as a teenager. Her name is Estelle
Warren
"I'm ilad I don't live in Madison," the Monticello resident
said. "You can't e' en breathe there without getting your named in
the newspaper."
After saying that, she grabbed Tommy Thigpen, a happily
married Madison man and told me, "I'm going to nin off with a
married man Take our picture."
I laughed, as Tonmim said. "No. no, don't do that.". 7
'I later learned that Estelle had gotten mni good friend. S. lia
Amert, the head of the MNaster's singing group in "trouble in Val-
dosta, Ga. one night. Sylvia said that she and Estelle had stopped
into a convenience store there to get a drink: Sylvia had gone to
the bathroom and, when she came out, she told Estelle, "Come
on, old lady, let's get you back to the nursing home before it
closes."
Estelle told those present, including a policeman, "I' e ne\ -
er seen this woman in my life."
Sylvia said that she was detained at the store, in spite of
telling.them that she knew Estelle and that Estelle was riding
with her. Estelle kept insisting that she didn't.
"I almost got arrested for kidnapping!" Sylvia said.
Roger Martin, bass. singer and guitarist for the Nlaster's,
also knew Estelle very well. Roger %was wearing, a white t-shirt
under a black shirt and Estelle, noticing he looked like a priest.
said, "I've been trying to confess my sins to him. but he \won't
listen."
Roger, laughing, said, "I don't kiiow if I'm old enough to
hear what she'd confess."
Older people, who'are as full of life as Estelle is, are a breath
of fresh air in the world.
Bryant Thigpen, who is a teenager, is also a breath of fresh
air. He is the southh leader at Bible Deli% erance and the sing Fri-.
day evening was a fundraiser for that group I have kno\ n
Bryant since he was about five years old and he is grow ing into
a young man, who is full of fire for the Lord. ,.
Someone, who is the same age as my father, told him the
other day that age is only a number. I think that Estelle Warren
is living proof of that!


Terrorists Need A Dose of Cosby
I feel some concern for the fanatic Muslims and others of
God's children who seem to take umbrage at every little offense.
They got robbed of an important ingredient in the human char-
acter a sense of humor.
Can you imagine a bunch of Americans going out into the
streets and starting a riot because somebody drew cartoons about
their religion? Not hardly. The Ml ethodi sts fand Baptists are more
likely to start making jokes reflecting the same stance as the car-
toons, or aiming some irreverent barbs at themselves. Get all
bent out of shape because of something the Pope read in a
speech? Rather, listen to late-night and see what Lettermian,
Leno, or Ferguson has to say, and laugh uproariously about it.
How did all these truly touchy people end up in the same re-
gion and religion? I know that someMuslims laugh and joke
around; I've been among them. So I don't understand how this.
humorlessness took hold of so many folks who inhabit the same
area or worship in the same type of edifices.
Maybe it has something to do with climate in the Middle
East. I know I would have a hard time living under the condi-
tions in which they seem to thrive., I would dislike trying to sleep
in temperatures that climbed to over. 100 every day. And finding
adequate water would certainly be a challenge On the other ex-
treme, many Muslims live in the mountainous areas of Pakistan
and Afghanistan, so they have to wear hea \ la\ ers of clothing
all the time. I would feel like I was smothering each day. Ugh!
A partial explanation has to be the sand, In those dry 'desert
countries, the citizens find sand e er; %where. In their food, in
their kitchens, in their chairs, in their clothes, and in (worst of
all) their underwear. That would certainly give one reason to
scowl instead of smile
But scowl all the time? Have finding fault as a hobby? Nev-
er discover the fun of a pun? Not enter into Tom Swifties? What
a dry (no pun intended) life that would have to be.
We could win any country for democracy by sending them
Bill Cosby, Redd Foxx, Phyllis Diller, or Yakov Smirnoff in-
stead of sending bombs and bullets. Once they learned to laugh,
their belligerence would fade. They would welcome a smile and
respond with a grin.
I'm glad I live in a country where people laugh, where en-
joyment is a key ingredient of life, and where a joke is a valu-
able commodity. If we can export that component of our society,
we can make a huge difference. Maybe just maybe we could
win the war on terror without firing a shot.

We Need To Find, And Punish, Osama bin Laden


This is in response to Joe Boyles, your national security
columnist.
Boyles says in his latest column: "There are self-serving
politicians, most of them opposition Democrats, who claim that
America is no safer today than five years ago. What a bunch of
hogwash!"
He,was referring, of course, to the anniversary of 9-11.
Boyles is typical of your o er-the-top. neo-con columnists.
In fact, America is much LESS safer today than five years
ago. Most of the danger stems from the misdirected war in Iraq,
an'invasion undertaken for all the wrong reasons, and based on.
faulty intelligence, intelligence drummed up by Bush and his
cronies to justify their skewed ideology, not to mention their oil
lust. They've turned.Iraq into a festering pool of Islamic insur-


, gents dedicated to our destruction.
The administration's blind policies have, rightfully, turned
most of the x world against us. and put us at e% en greater peril. In
my mind, and man\ others, the biggest threat to Democracy
now, and in the past 50 ears. is King George, who continues to
try to become the Emperor of America.
Hopefully, in the next election, we can elect a president
who has more vision, who has more backbone and is stronger
on fighting these thugs and murderers who threaten us. One who
can find and punish the REAL villain of 9-11, Osama bin Laden.
Not some made-up war he started because he inexplicably let
bin Laden escape.

With regret, I missed the Madison City Commission meet-
ing the other night when the commissioner's showed their arro-
gant and brazen diie.iard for the \ ill of the people they are sup-
posedly serving. Myra Valentine and Jim Carrton are the two ex-
ceptions here, and they should be commended for acting like
,adults that actually care about something other then padding
their nests at the public feed trough. Mayor McGhee is the ring-
leader of this debacle. The mayor wanted Tom Nloffses gone.
and he is gone. Her two flunkies. Comnu ssioner James and
Commissioner Stanley, fell right into line. That was a mistake
that the citN will pay dearly for. In the middle of a flood stage
river is not the time to change horses.
Lo.sin Smiitlifield is a blow,. Losing Tom Moffses is a blow.
Tom know s e er, one He can pick up the phone and call the
go ernor. And the governor takes the call. He was responsible
for untold grant money coming here. After the) get done build-
ing the nev, apartment complex and it is added to the cit\ sew\ -
er system and the lift station to the Cruce Pond fails who you
gonna call? Ghostbusters are out of business. Contrar\ to popu-
lar belief, \Val-Mait is not a done deal. And w without Tom there,
it becomes more problematic After listening to the mayor dur-
ing the preceding meeting, I left, w ith the impression that she


must have a life size poster of Cynthia McKinney tacked to her
office wall for inspiration.
Commissioner James seemed unable to follow the flow of
conversation or was he dozing? Commissioner Stanley was, no
doubt, a" ake. although the public would have been better
served if he had missed the meeting and rode around in his fan-
c.) count) truck looking for bad %weather to warn us about. Per-
sonally, I will continue to depend on Rob Nuccatola tor the
weather.
Now the old chief of police is g6ing to be the new interim
city manager. And the new chief is married to the mayor. Ain't
that cozy. Voting themselves a raise in the face of serious fiscal
difficulty. as not onl1 wrong, it was a petulant, in your face dis-
play of petty minunds at w oik. Big fish in a little pond. Public ser-
vice-is supposed to be, prinmarilih. a set' ice to the comminuni(\
Not \our means of support I suspect we could find people ho
w would ser e w ith no compensation while w e weather the loonm-
ing crisis. The ma o r and her two cronies should be impeached
or recalled before Madison is nothing more than a bad copy of
Quincy. Sheer disaster.

it did tap the water from deep inside of the Florida aquifer, it
would be more basic. Limestone caves make up the aquifer and
limestone is what farmers use to sweeten the soil, or make it
more basic.
The other serious problem could be related to our cloudy
weather. Moffses said when it gets cloudy, the oxygen gets de-
pleted and the fish die. "When it gets too hot the fish will die. It's
happened before."
Campbell said the algae turns brown because it's not bloom-
ing due to cloudy days. He said the worst time for the fish will
be at 5 or 6 a.m., after a long cloudy day. The algae need sun-
shine to make oxygen (called photosynthesis). When there is no
sun all day and all night, early in the morning oxygen levels will
be at their lowest and the fish could die ... overstocking of fish
plus no oxygen, means a fish kill. "The.heat of the summer, an
overstocked situation and cloudy days are all the ingredients for
a train wreck," Campbell said.
Megan Wetherington, a hydrologist for Suwannee River
Water Management, said she plans to come to Madison and vi-
sually check the lake today. "We plan to check to see if any oth-
er factors in he community could be effecting the water,"
Wetherington said. .
Moffses said the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission
(FWC) installed two or three aerators in Lake Francis. The aer-
ators oxygenate the water. "But they are not enough," he said.
"The'lake is a mile in circumference."


Sex Offenders


cont from page 1 A


Madison Count\ Sheriff's Office.
"I think she will do a good job handling this," Harris said.:
Shadrick on the job for only four weeks, said her goal in this
matter is to hopefully assign one or two sexual offenders to each
deputy. The deputies \ ill do -eeklh checks on the whereabouts
of the individuals they are assigned. "They will just drop in on
them once or twice a week," Shadrick said. "No set times, just
drop in.",
Shadrick who was a School Resource Officer for 17 years,
and has, four.children and a grandson, says she takes this assign-
ment very seriously. '"It's time America stepped up to the plate
and treated our children like humans, not animals," Shadrick
said. "There are some animals that have more rights than our
children."
Harris said they are 99, percent finished with the check. Har-
ris said there are only two more names left on the list to check
out. And these two work out of town. "They have jobs that keep
them out of town." Harris said. "But they have to check in where
they are going and when they get back."
,So .far only two of Madison's sex offenders are not living
where they said they were. The Sheriff's Qffice has.turned in the
paperwork to the State's Attorney but warrants for their arrests
have yet to be issued. Two of the registered offenders from pre-
vious checks have still not been located. Warrants for the arrests
of Omar Tejeda and Ferrer Vettori have been issued. Shadrick
said the two are probably not in the county.,
"They weren't where they were supposed to be," Harris said
about the two most recent offenders not found at th- .address
where they claimed to live. "But we know where they are.
Sometimes they try to play games 'with us, and they're maybe
.down the street at their girlfriend's house, but that's not going to
fly. This is something Florida takes very serious and we take
very serious. If they say they're going to be somewhere, they
better be there."
"We're going to do what we need to do to keep our children
safe in Madison County," Shadrick said.

Bronson Announces Second
Arrest This Year Of Bradenton
Man For Operating Unlicensed
Pest Control Company
Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson today announced that a Bradenton man has
been arrested for the second time this year for engaging in unli-
censed pest control activities.
The suspect, Ted Matlock, 37, was picked up earlier today
on a charge of Unlicensed Practice of Pest Control, a second-de-
gree misdemeanor. He was arrested by the Manatee County
Sheriff's Office on a warrant issued following an in% estigation
by Bronson'si Office'of Agricultural La"\ Enforcement, (OAL'E'.
'Just 4 1/2 months ago, Bronson's OALE arrested Mdtlock
on both misdemeanor and felony charges for engaging in the
same activity and defrauding an elderly citizen by billing her
twice for pest-control services he provided. Authorities say he
was out on bail at the time of the second incident.
Bronson said an investigation by his department concluded
that Matlock continued to engage in pest control activities in the
manner of a legitimate licensed company after his initial arrest
despite the fact that his business was not registered with the
Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. His
business alternately went by the names of America's Best Ter-
mite and Pest Control Inc., and America's Best Tentless Termite.
"It is important that pest control companies are licensed
with the state as these companies provide critical services to
homeowners," Bronson said. "Licensed companies have to
demonstrate familiarity with and proficiency in handling various
.chemicals, which is something that unlicensed companies obvi-
ously have not been tested for."
Matlock, who will be prosecuted by the State Attorney's Of-
fice in Manatee County, was booked into the Manatee County
Jail following today's arrest.


Millage Rate


cont from page 1A


Sanders said that the millage is the lowest since he became
Clerk of the Court 14 years ago.
The final budget hearing, where the millage will be voted on
and set for sure, will be held next Wednesday, September 27, at
5:30 p.m.'in the County Commission Meeting Room in the
Courthouse Annex. Public comment is welcomed at the hearing.

President, Jackie Johnson gathered together for a
good time during the meeting. (Greene Publishing,

On Thursday, September 14, there was a full house of
cheerful women and smiling faces at the Women's Club meet-
ing and luncheon.
Many of the club members donated at least $1 to the Presi-
dent's State Project, which helps in the comnumnit., state and na-
tionwide. It is a project assisting children who have cancer, or,
someone in their family who has cancer.
Also. there was a donation taken up for new and existing
club members..
The officers for this year's club are: Jackie Johnson, Presi-
dent; Sandra Ulm, Vice. President; Judy Haire, Treasurer; Ann
Elle Bishop, Secretary: and Helen McCain, ,Parliamentarian.
The members and their guests were delighted with wonder-
ful entertainment from Debbie Browning.
Woman's Club President, Jackie Johnson, thanked the com-
mittee and Peggy Hinson for their beautiful decorations.
She welcomed guests and went over many significant top-
ics that the .club needed to address such as the roof problem.

Johnson discussed this issue with the City Manager and will.
continue to address this topic in the future.
Additionally, the Woman's Club will be participating in the
' Heifer International Project again. It helps raise mone\ to pur-
chase a heifer to send to third world countries that are poverty
stricken.
The Women's Club sent over animals last year that espe-
ciall\ helps families in the summer months when it was crucial
to sur\i e. Better) \illiams read a thank-you letter from Heifer
International that thanked the IMadison Woman's Club with their
selfless acts of kindness to support this project.
Johnson informed niembers of the Annual Board of Direc-
tor's Meeting which will be held on September 29-October 1,
The members will be expected to help with the expenses of
lodging for this event for those who may not be able to afford
this experience on their own.
On October 12-13, the Annual "Tour of Officers Meeting,
and Dinner" will be held and Johnson encourages members to
sign up and attend this special event.
Also, on November 2-5, in Destin, there will be a Woman's


Club conference that gives plenty of new ideas and hands-on ex-
perierice for clubs.
During Thursda. 's meeting, there was a moment of silence
for a past, but never forgotten member, Willie Clare Copland.
She \\as instnunental in planting all of the irees around Madi-
son County.
The Woman's Club partners with a nursing home every year
to throi resident's ,birrhda. parties, and is making a change this
year from the Lake Park of Madison to Hughey Memorial.
This past summer, the Spring workshop p was held at the
very own Madison Wonman's Club. Johnson stated, "There was
a great crowd, everyone learned a lot and everyone was very im-
pressed with our'club."
Johnson renunded members to be patient while she and the
current Woman's Club officers are revising the bylaws and
putting the finishing touches on the yearbook. It will be worth
the wait.,
All members are encouraged to sign up for an activity that
is taking place throughout the year. It is so rewarding to be able
to give back to your club and to local community of Madison.

Shortly after APG ac-
quired Cypress Gardens, the
reorganization and reopening
were substantially impacted by
over $25 million worth. of

It's Me God!

"For I am persuaded that neither death nor life,
nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things,
present nor things to come,,nor height nor depth, nor
any other created thing, shall be able to separate us
from the love of God which is is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-
39
Certainly, this passage from Romans is true. There is nothing that can
separate you from My love if you are willing to receive it,
However, it is unwillingness, lack of faith, or pride that can'take you
from My love, It will not be by My choice, but by yours alone.,
When you are choosing 0 choose wisely, What happens on earth is only
temporary, y love and the kingdom of Heaven are forever,.

God is good. God is very good. God is very good all the time
and we praise Him. We give thanks that though we did not reach
our Western Roundup Goal of 200 in Sunday School that there
were 178 in attendance. After church, dinner was served, with
many attending and reports of exceptionally wonderful food!
Thank to e% erNbod\ who atterided,. brought food, and who shared
in service, fellowship and food.
Speaking of Sunday School, we are.blessed to have super car-
ing Bible Believers teachers. Martha Beggs and Martha Register
had their class sing three favorites, "IWill Sing The Mercies of the
Lord,", "Victory in Jesus" and "The Books of the Bible." Any one
of them could have won the twenty dollars Preacher offered to
Chase Fico if he could grasp the twenty or knew the books of the
Bible or the twelve Disciples. Brooke Joiner has not missed a sin-
gle day for five years; Jayden Clark, one year perfect attendance;
Lizzie Frakes and Tyler Zimmerly missed only one day. These
fi\e %\ere promoted to Children lI- JaydeinClark. Tyler Zimmerly,
Hunter Robinson, Jonathan Johnson 'and Keana Garot.
Such gorgeous flowers were provided Sunday by sweet
Reese and little Rhett Rutherford in honor of their parents 11th an-
niv'ersary on the i6th and her 36th birthday on the 16th, and Kim
was too sick to even be in church. Special blessings upon her and
all of them.
The Ladies Quartet-Willa Branham, Cindy Brown, Liane
Wakefield and Amy Robinson sang, with Willa's mother on the
piano.
Pra\ for Juanita Ragans reovering from knee surgery; for Sue
Raines and Bettr Jane Wilson, no%\' out of Madison Hospital;
Sarah Rorre and all other ill ones. We give thanks Dr. Julie
Schindler is back and we pray for her and all her patients (includ-

The Madison and Jefferson County Health Departments
teamed up with the Jefferson County High School to provide a
career fair that focuses on the importance of post-secondary ed-
ucation with a special emphasis on careers in the health field.
On Wednesday September 20, from 8:30 a.m. 11 a.m. the
third annual Health-Related Careers and College Fair was held
at the Jefferson County High School.
Students from Madison County Central and High Schools,
Jefferson Count MNliddle and High Schools, Aucilla Christian
Academy, and Taylor Count) High School participated in the
event.
The fair focused on helping students set career goals and be-
gins working toward successful futures. The career opportuni-
ties that were represented included nursing, medicine, dentistry,
social work and allied health programs such as dental assisting,
radiologic technology. phlebotoim. medical assisting, and respi-
ratory therapy.
Each of the participants received information about \ arioLus
area colleges and the programs that are offered as well as infor-
mation on financial aid and application assistance.
"The importance of pro\ iding information on health-related
careers to our youth has never, been more important than it is
now," said Kim Barnhill, Administrator of the Madison and Jef-.
ferson County Health Departments.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the
"baby boomers" requiring healthcare will rise by 10 million per-
sons over the next decade, while the population of college-aged
young adults-those most likely to fill healthcare jobs-will
only rise by 2.9 percent.
The American "baby boom" generation is typically regard-,
ed as those individuals born from 1946 to 1964, and the boomers
.will likely increase the population of the 55- to 64-year-old age
category by 36 percent over the next ten years.
"With this shortage looming, it is vitally important that we
encourage- our young people to consider healthcare careers,"
said Barnhill. "We will need their help in caring for the older
population."
In addition, many studies that have shown connections be-
tween increased socioeconomic status and health., outcomes.
"By choosing a career that is in great demand, our young people
will enjoy higher salaries, and this will benefit the overall health
of the community," Barnhill said.









Jason Joel Fletcher is a Summer 2006 graduate of Valdosta
State University with his Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal
Justice.
Stephanie Carisse Wilson of Greenville and Matthew Dustin
Humphrey of Madison have been named to the Summer 2006
Dean's list at Valdosta State University. To make the Dean's list,

MAINLAND IS GOODE!


By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
According to all Cowboy coaches, Daytona Mainland is a
good team and will be tough.
"They're as good a defense as we played so far," offensive
coordinator Mike Coe said. "You can compare them to Coffee
County or Lake City."
"Mainland is a great team." said head Cowboys' coach
Frankie Carroll. "They"re undefeated and should be nationallN
rated."
Both Coe and Carroll gave the same game plan. "We have
to get better at what we do," Coe said. "We're going to do what
we do better," Carroll said.
And that's basic Mladison Cowboy philosophy. Keep it sim-
ple, keep it the same, do it better.
Carroll said Mainland runs a 50 defense, and sometimes
they run a 46-blitz defense. He said it's a defense created by
Coach BuddN Ryan for the Chicago Bears 20 \ears ago and cur-
rently used by R an's son Re\, first-s ear offensive coordinator
for the Baltimore Ravens. The. Buddy RN an 46 defense is blitz
oriented. It's built around putting pressure on the quarterback
and finding out if the backup is any good. The whole 46 blitz de-
fensive package is based around intimidation.- And Carroll
added, the defense is pretty big.

nus superstar wide receiver and-D-back Beniard Brinson. Brin-1
son suffered a lot ankle sprain against Suwannee. He is doubt-
ful for the Mainland game. Three players % ill be brought for-
ward to take Brinson's place. Jordan Johnson and Mike Li\-
ingston will take o\er Brinson's defensive responsibilities and
Dontarius Huggins will be mo\ ed into Bnnson's wide recei% er
slot.
Defensive coordinator Rod \Villiams said. "We're gonna be
in for a dogfight down there. Mainland looks good: the\ can
move the ball."
Williams said Mainland runs every offensive formation
known to man. "We're just going to try to make sure we see
e\er, thing." Williams said. "If we need to make adjListmlents.
we need to see them."
Look for #33 Chaunct Gordon on the Mainland D-line. He
sacked the Winter Springs quarterback-three times. Gordon is a,
5'7" senior with 18 total tackles this season and one blocked
punt. Mainland's quarterback is a 5,-11" senior named Derek
Taylor. Taylor is 30 for 52 this season, passing for, 315 total
yards, two touchdo't n_ and one interception. Two key running
backs for Mainland are #5 Kenny ,,Wilson and #3 Andra
Williams. Both have the most yards gained on the team and five.,
TDs between them.
Head for Daytona Beach tonight and cheer for Madison. Go

termined that 11,000 to 12,000 pounds of
