day, November 6, meeting.
Currently, Jim Parrish is acting as the
town's consultant and does some of the duties
of the town manager, along with Town Clerk

The Council will also discuss changing the
meeting time from the first Monday of each
month until the second Monday.
Another item, which will be brought up for

ly meeting on Tuesday, November 7.
Among the items on the agenda are an
amendment to the town's planning and zoning

developer will be expected to pay a proportion-
ate share of the cost for new road construction
if the amendment passes.
The Council will also look at the annexa-
tion of property belonging to Tom Moore and to
the Felton Almand estate.

Hospital Administrator Gives His Reasons

For Voting For Hospital Tax

What Will A Half-Penny Really Buy?
By David Abercrombie, AICMH Adminisirtnor
A recent editorial said the proposed half-cent sales tax to build a new hospital will cost you
a full penn\. That %was misleading. Here's the truth: The tax on the first $1.00 of your pur.-
chase is rounded to the whole penn>. making the tax on that first dollar a whole penny, because
you obviously can't pay half a penny. The next dollar of your item is taxed at 7 1/2 cent, mak-
ing the whole purchase price $2.15 1/2 cent, then it is rounded down. making what \ou pay at
the cash register $2.15 (averaging a one-half cent tax). The total you pay at the cash register
on purchases over one dollar is one-half cent.
A voter needs something solid to hang his or her hat on. Information he or she can trust.
You can be assured that over the thirty year life span of a new hospital building certain things
will happen. These facts are not disputed: fact: a YES vote w ill save thousands of lives; fact:
a YES \ ote will pro% ide thousands of jobs: fact: a YES vote will lessen pain and suffering: fact:
a YES vote %will gi\e immeasurable convenience. These are facts and they are undisputable.
Your YES vote will also pump into the Madison County economy no less than $36.000.000
every year. And it will allow for additional medical services to be prove ided such as women's
health, outpatient rehabilitation for those with heart ailments and breathing problems, wound
care for the diabetic, and more outpatient surgery capability. All of this for your half-penny
which will cost families about $50-$100 per family, per year. depending on how much the fam-
ily buys throughout the year.
How w ill the hospital pay for these expanded services? Our community's hospital is a crit-
ical access hospital. This means that Medicare reimburses most of the depreciation cost for new
construction. Let's say that Medicare pays the hospital $500 for a particular medical service.
That Medicare pay ment to the hospital might go up to $600 for each similar service the hdspi.-
tal provides. Now let me ask you. the voter, a question: If Medicare is agreeing to reimburse
your hospital approximately 759 of the total cost of constructing a new hospital, and you get
all of these healthcare, and financial, and community benefits - don't you %want to take them
up on their offer'? Well Voters, that is the deal you are offered. We taxpayers have to pay for
the construction first and the hospital is then partially reimbursed over the years of thoe depre-
ciation. But...this cost is reimbursed. It is probably the best deal we will e\er be offered.
Let's turn to health issues. There is no state protocol that mandates that a hospital trans-
fer all stroke patients to TMH. Does the writer of a recent editorial against the hospital really
third that it is better 1no to pro\ ide treatment for a stroke' The American Stroke Association
has a slogan: "Time is brain." For over half a century, the doctors and nurses at this hospital
ha e understood this and have provided care to citizens who have suffered strokes.
The hospital is gearing up to improve our county's approach to stroke care. It begins \with
community education. Everyone should be taught to recognize the signs of a stroke. Then
should stroke symptoms occur in your family, you will waste no time getting him or her to the
emergency room call EMSi.
Outstanding care x- ill be given there using recommended national standards, as it is today.
Your family member \will then be treated. stabilized, and then transferred as might be appropri-
With new\ radiology equipment. we in Madison County can use a stroke team approach \with

Community education means the family\ member will get emergency care faster: digital imag-
ing means that a neurologist will have his test results faster.
This approach is called a team approach because and it includes the patient and his family.
the EMS. the family doctor and emergency room doctor, the radiology tech and radiologist, the
neurologist, and the employees at the receiving hospital in Tallahassee. The team approach will
put the patient in the neurologist's hands about 45 minutes faster. "Time is brain."
This hospital is and w ill continue to be a community hospital It has never implied any in-
tention of delivering babies nor becoming a stroke center, a cardiac center, nor a trauma center.
Someone made that up, that didn't come from the hospital.
As a community hospital in a county of about 19.000 people, this hospital's job is to work
\with your doctor to take care of your family's health, not to be a center for specialty care. The
population in Madison County isn't large enough to support sub-specialty physicians. Your
family doctor is the nght person to guide you through the complex maze of healthcare that be-
gins here at home and is connected to healthcare in Tallahassee and all across the country Talk
to him or her about the YES vote.

Dead Skunks, Dead Dogs, W he Will It

nan uea ueer.
Monday evening, I was driving from Madison to Lee when
I ran over something in the road. I have no idea what (or who) it
was. (Dear Lord, please let it be a "what" and not a "who.") It'
could have been a fox or a dog. It felt too big to be a cat - unless
it was huge like that big old tomcat at my house that makes
Garfield look petite. A song entered into my head when I ran
over the. thing in the road. The song was "Dead Skunk in the
Middle of the Road" by Loudon-Wainright III but there was no
smell - and that would have been a huge skunk- so I know I
didn't hit a polecat.
It's very rare that I run over any living thing and I believe
that this thing was already dead. The only things I ha\ e hlt be-
fore were squirrels and an angry dog that I really tried to avoid
hitting and he ran in front of me anyway, then ran off yelping.-
As mean as the dog looked, I wasn't about to risk my life to
check on his wellbeing. The squirrels, I.honestly believe, had de-
cided to commit suicide, but once they got in the road, they
changed their minds, but, it was too late because I could not
avoid hitting them. I have never hit anything, on purpose.
Sometimes, I believe that animals see me coming and try to
assault my car. Fortunately, their timing is off. Every once in a
while, I will see a deer gallop across Highway 90 seconds before
I would be where they were.
I was reading a report of the 10 states where deer are most
often struck by automobiles. Florida \\ as not in the top 10. Geor-
gia was number five. Do you know what state topped the list?
Pennsylvania! Michigan was number two. Illinois was number
three. Strange thing is that northerners come down here and
complain about our driving. Maybe it's not their driving. Maybe
that's just the way they hunt deer up north.
One Saturday night, I had gone to eat supper at O'Neal's.
My blood pressure. was out of control that evening and my head
was spinning. My father, who was in the car with me, shouted,
"Watch out for that deer!" I swerved and missed killing Bambi's
mother. The next day, my father told me that there had been five
deer standing beside the road. Honestly, I never saw them. Of
course, I never saw the deer that my daddy had warned me
about. :
Sometimes, there are things we just don't see. It doesn't
mean that they are not -there. Sometimes, others have tolpoint~
them out to us. Sometimes, the things can be'spiritual aind'not
physical. Perhaps you have a sin� that you do not see. Perhaps
there is something going on behind the scenes for your good that
you do not see. I believe that the Holy Spirit (whom I cannot
see) is with me and I believe that Satan's imps (whom I also can-
not see) are always lurking around to tempt me. My faith in Je-
sus helps me battle the imps and there are always angels unseen
who encamp about me. I thank God for the reminder of this.
Sometimes, He will send you a bump in the road to let you
know He's always there.

We are being asked to raise our own taxes again, in order to
build a new Hospital in Madison. County. We were told origi-
nally that it was a half cent tax needed to build the Hospital, now
I read in Greene Publishing that the tax will actually round out
to a penny. Jacob Bembry wrote that this penny will only pay
the first two or three months interest per year and this statement
was echoed by Warren Irwin's Letter to the Editor. Guess what,
they're both right.
'We are told by those that want this Hospital built, off the
backs of the good people of this County, that we will hardly
know we are giving our money away. After all, it's just a penny.
right? Even our own Republican "whatever she is" Ms. Mari-
anne Green wrote, "how can we vote No"?
Well, I can vote NO. Below are some of the taxes we now
pay, some on a daily basis, weekly basis and some on a yearly
or one time only basis, but they are assuredly paid taxes. Sornme
do not reflect taxes collected in this county. What I'd like to
know is, When will enough be enough? Will twenty-fi\e cents
on the dollar be enough? Will fifty-cents on the dollar be
enough? How aboot seventy-five cents on each and every dollar
that we eam, will that be enough" I would like to know.;
The following are some of the taxes that some of us now
pay. Accounts Receivable Tax, Building Permit Tax. CDL Li-

As a very young man, I worked for an Osteopathic Hospi-
tal, located in Waterville. Maine. We went from a 13 bed in a
seventy-five year old, donated house, to a ninety bed, brand new
hospital with No Monies Collected From the Tax-Payers What-
soever. We did have Rock a Thons, Walk a Thons, Chicken din-
nets, We sold donated pies, -cakes, tools. We sold chances on
Firearms. fishing gear, boats, motors, donations, donations and
more donations.
Now, I'll donate the first hundred-dollar bill in order: to
build a New Hospital. with New Management, and without
adding another tax, on the backs: of the Tax-Payer.

We Ar Ae All In This Boat Together

Dear Editor: \
I have been reading the back and foinh commentary made
by various parties as to the concept of racismm" or "discrimina-
tion" and to be honest it pains my heart. Tp see how the fighting
and bickering still occur years after these problems were sup-
posedlv remediedjis a sad sight to witness. And while there are
many,sides to.this argument ajid I am sure there are.,manyheart,
felt beliefs that go along with said disagreements, the fact that,
we cannot stand side by side as a people is more disheartening
than anything else that has been stated.
When the writer spoke of how people's views and "per-
spective[s] lack authenticity and credibility" I honestly felt sick.
We could all complain about times when we have been discrim-
inated against. Each person we pass by on a daily basis has been
through trials and tribulations. Everyone can remember a situa-
tion where someone judged us unfairly or we were not given the
full opportunity to exercise our freedoms as Americans. I could
name countless times when I was the minority, or I was sexual-,
ly discriminated against, or was just treated differently because
of who I am and how I looked.

But the point is riot for me to say 'poor, poor, pitiful me' but
rather to say that we all are in this boat together. If a person
wants to spend his or her money, they have the right to do so in
the way they please whether I believe it's fair or not. That, my
friends, is the beauty of 6ur country. We have that freedom. The.
freedom that our brothers and sisters have, still continue to, shed-
their blood for.'That is \\ h) we have the'red stripes ton MtIrAfl.'a
I do not want to say someone is right and the other is wrong.
What I am saying is that if we spend our time belittling each oth-
er and looking down on our own brothers and sisters, we are no
better than those who came before us. We are just as bad, if not
worse, because we are not ignorant to those truths. We should
learn the lesson we preach, and I make myself the prime exam-
ple. A great and wonderful man once said that we should love
our enemies and pray for those who hurt us.
... Oh yeah, and he gave his own life for us to prove that

Just thinking,

those jobs, as well as the health care benefit to our citizens is of
the utmost importance to Madison County. With an annual rev-
enue of approximately $20 million, the economic impact of the
hospital to Madison County is over $40 million per year
Our hospital was established through legislative action cre-
ating a hospital district. It is a non-profit entity created to serve
our community in the provision of quality health care. The
building itself is over 50 years old, and has not aged that well.
A new building will provide opportunity for new and improved
equipment and additional medical staff. The recruitment of
quality medical professionals would be much more efficient
with modem facilities and equipment to offer them.
If our community chooses to take no action, we will lose

our hospital. That loss will negatively affect each and every one
of us. It will have a negative impact on any potential business
growth since one of the main questions asked by a business
looking at relocating or starting up in Madison is 'What kind of
healthcare do you have?"
It is up to each of us to take responsibility for our commu-
nity development and sustainability. We need to keep moving
forward and be progressive in the positive changes that we want
for Madison County. An additional half-cent sales tax would
certainly be a good investment for quality health care services
that we can be proud to showcase to our citizens, visitor, and
prospective employers.

Fall Brings A Change

Of Foods To The Table
Each season brings a different variety of fresh fruits and
vegetables to our tables. Fall is no exception; the rich colors of
autumn foods add texture and appeal to meals as well as nutri-
ents needed for health. Here is a primer of foods to include in
your fall menu:
Sweet potatoes - A good source of vitamin C, 1/2 cup also
contains more than a day's supply of vitamin A. To keep mois--
ture in, bake them wrapped in foil. Try eating sweet potatoes,
without, sugar or butter; you'll discover a x wonderful flavor.
They can be cooked in orange juice and cinnamon for a low-fat
Butternut squash -A winter squash. many cooks avoid us-
ing this vegetable because most cooking recommendations re-
quired that you bake it in the oven. It can be prepared in the mi-
crowave and wiji be ready to serve in less than 15 minutes. It
makes a great soup'and can be sutbstiruted for sweet potatoes in.
any recipe. Bake butternut squash and apples with cinnamon and
brown sugar for a side dish to ham or poultry.
Pumpkin-It couldn't be fall without pumpkins. Although
I recently devoted an entire article to this wonderful fall veg-
etable, it needs to be mentioned again. A member of the squash
family; these bold colored vegetables are decorative symbols of
the season. A great source of vitamin A, they can be prepared in,
for a variety of dishes. Try combining pumpkin with potatoes or
add to your favorite casserole. You can also substitute pumpkin
in recipes calling for winter squash or sweet potatoes. For a dif-
ferent taste, use pumpkin for making muffins, sweet breads or
Pumpkin is highly perishable and must be cooked the same
day it is cut open. To cook fresh pumpkin: cut a pumpkin in half
vertically, discarding the seeds and stringy pulp. Place pumpkin
sliced side down in a large baking side, add water so there is ?".
and bake 350 for one hour. The pulp should be chilled immedi-
ately. Use the pulp within 36 hours or store in the freezer. Pump-
kin puree can be frozen or canned for future use.
Pears - They begin to appear in September and are avail-
able through December..
Popular varieties include Anjou, Bosc and Red. They can be
eaten raw for a snack or added to salads for an interesting tex-
ture and flavor. Pears can be baked in pies or cobblers for a
dessert. If you are fortunate to have a pear tree in the back yard,
you-lmay con-ider preserving some for use throughout the year
or make jams or jellies.
Apples - Although apples are available year round, there is.
nothing like a fresh picked apple. Baked, stewed or eaten whole,
apples are a fall staple. Of course, it would not be fall without
candied or caramel apples,. To save time, make a caramel sauce
to dip apple \ edges in as a snack or when company is over.
Next trip to the grocery or road side stand, take time to look
at the produce and see the variety of fall fruit and vegetables.
Make a point to bring home something new to prepare for your.
family. There i. no better time than your.next meal to enjoy the
foods of the season .

If you've seen Disne 's Jungle Book, )ou remember King
Louie. The head orangutan :had quite a milieu in the ancient
temple-dancers, inusicians. acolb tes, hordes of followers, infflu-
ence not a situation to be sneezed at.
But -someone sneezed, and the temple began to crumble.
King Louie dashed about trying to save it, but to no avail. The
scene closes -% ith the .king acting as a pillar to shore up,one cor-'
ner of the bitilding:'"above him, the only part still standing is a.
small pile of splinters.
Gone were the acolytes and drummers. Gone wag his influ-
ence. Gone was his kingdom.
We in Madison County stand at a crossroad much like King
Louie's. We are pinning our health hopes on an aging structure
that, in three or four years, will be a pile of splinters. If we' al-
low the 1/2 cent tax referendum to die, Madison County Memo-
rial Hospital will be gone.
What else will be gone? For one thing, about $30-50 mil-
lion in our county's economy. We've taken major hits from Dix-
ie Packers and Smithfield; we can't'afford a third self-inflicted
wound to the county purse.
Another missing piece will be 100-120 full-time jobs, plus
part tiine jobs aiid ancillary s riices. That job could be ) our sis-,
ter's. . . : .
A third item to disappear will be your quick-response am-
bulance. Oh, the paramedic will still be answering calls, but
fewer and slower. One unit will be transporting a stroke patient
to V-ddosta when another gets an urgent call to whisk a barely
breathing infant to Tallahassee. The third leaves the county to
take elderly Mrs. Rdhl to get x-rays after a fall.
So when Joe\ Neil gets his leg gnawed up by an Evinrude
while water skiing at Cherry Lake, there's not an ambulance in
the count\. His family can rush him to Lanier Field for Life-
Flight, but lightning to the east indicates they may not come.
Just think a 1/2 cent could have saved Joey's leg.
What else will be gone? The opportunity for our sons,
daughters, and grands to find employment at home. No hospital
here translates into our loved ones moving away to find work.
Businesses and industries are seeking desirable locations. A
bustling hospital is a big plus in our favor; no hospital means a
huge minus. Those companies will be gone.
What else will be gone? Lives. The countless lives saved
by a hospital. The precious lives of those who could have been
helped. The longer lives of those who died too soon. Every one
of those lives is worth more that the $50 to $100. the tax will cost
me over a year. But they will be gone.
We can prevent this vanishing act. A simple mark by the
"yes" on Tuesday's ballot will ensure the continued presence of
Madison County Memorial Hospital in our county. We owe it to
ourselves and to the generations to come.
Vote yes on the 1/2 cent tax referendum. You will never re-
gret it.

Hickory Grove Founder's Day

Was Delightful

Hickorn Grove Founder's Day is such a delight, to the visu-
al, the aural and to the olfactory senses - the aroma of cane juice
being transformed into syrup, of home-made biscuits baking in
wood stoves, of coffee brewing, of chicken and rice reaching"
perfection in big black w\asfi pots. of corn on the cob slathered,
in butter, of spicy venison chili and good old southern collards,
and "hoecake" plus the elephant 'ears, ice cream: and home-
churned butter! Yummy! "
All the things to see - and buy- including a huge array of
home-sewn, hand made; home ground and home jarred articles
in the little store: basket weaving, chair seat caning, slingshot
making and quilting were among the interesting booths plus
there %were chickens. goats, antiques of all kinds and oodles of
delicious cakes of every kind for sale.
Most pleasing to the ear, besides the sounds of laughter and
enjoyment everywhere, was the singing which was outstanding
and even included an Elvis impersonator who was, we thought.
well above average.
One long line was the one leading to the smokehouse where
home grown hams, hog head cheese and link sausages were for
sale and where the supply sells out fast. And of course, one had
to buy chances on the quilt and afghan to be given away and vis-
it the (historic) Confederate soldier's camp this was also in
Boston, Ga this year for the first time) afid the old log school
We, with daughter Vicki and neighbor Teenie, thoroughly
enjoyed this year's Founders' Day and hope it never ends for it
contains so much of the 'olden days' rural flavor.
Speaking of festivals, we hear that the first Lee Day Com-
mittee meeting is on the horizon - watch for it and get involved
- there'll be lots to do and lots of fun in the doing, we promise.
The Simon Kinseys' calendar has been quite full of enjoy-
able events recently. Their children gifted them with a weekend
at a place' of their choosing for Simon's birthday and they chose
the Gibson Inn in Apalachicola where they enjoyed a wonder-
fully relaxing (time-out.) Other events included the Rotary ban-
quet, which was held at the Elks Club on Thursday the 26th and
featured Jack Proctor's prime rib dinner.
The Lee School Fall Festival was an interesting event on
Saturday and the Chamber of Conummerce Banquet on Monday.
We wish a belated happy birthday to Tommy Greene and an-
niversarv wishes to him and MIy ~ llfi "" ' '""
Since we were out of town for a couple of weeks, we also
send our belated condolences to the families of B.F. Kelley and
Franklin Stokes and to Louis Demotsis and family on the pass-.,
ing of his sister Katherine.
We were happy to see Myrtice Payne, "who had spent quite
'some time in Lake Park due to health problems, enjoying
Founders Day with family and friends.
We end this column with a few "pet peeves." On answering
the phone we hear "when we return to the phone, please let us
know how we may serve you" and the many times repeated "we
assure you that help is only a moment away"! First, why else'
would we be calling and how many long moments must we

somethingin our constitution concerning this?! Whoever coined
the phrase is ignorant for anyone knowing anything concerning
farm life knows that a pig must first become a gilt (a female) be-
fore becoming pregnant. After she becomes a parent she is then'
a sow. Therefore, for the phrase to be in the constitution, it
would first have to be legal which of course it isn't for it isn't
And now we hope you have a crispy cool and wonderful late
fall day. But be sure to cast a well-informed vote for the candi-
date of your choice and the amendments. And may the most
qualified win!

County Commissioner
District Two

Give yourself a voice in the decisions affecting
Madison County. Madison County can be and
should be seen as a successful Business.
Elect A Commissioner Against Wasteful
Government Spending!



Continued from Wednesday's Carrier, my contract with the voters.
I am publishing my views on different issues that are facing
Madison County and issues voters have expressed a concern with nme
during the campaign.
Establish a wellness plan for all county employees.,
Healthy employees are better focused on- their jobs and perform
at a higher level of efficiency. A good preventive health maintenance
program will help lower the cost of medical insurance the county pro-,
vides as a benefit to our employees.
Research transportation grants.
Right now, a lot of our citizens are traveling 60 miles or more to
work and until we get jobs in Madison County this could continue at an
ever growing pace. We are, a low income, economically deprived coun-
ty. I believe there are grants available to assist our citizens with trans-
portation to and from.work and school. With the price of gas, (and it will
go back up) folks could be spending a good portion of their check on
fuel. I have known of areas where these services were available. I will
work to bring something of this nature to Madison if it is available.
I will audit the operation of any Agency, Board, or Organization
that receives taxpayer dollars, to ensure they are performing the,

es rvices they have contracted with the taxpayer to provide.

This would include organizations like the Chamber of
Commerce, Madison County Development Council and the Madison
County Hospital Board. These organizations receive a lot of taxpayer
funding and it has recently come to light there is much dissension
among the ranks Of these boards. If you aren't getting the job done,
shake up the organization. If we aren't getting our money's worth, cut
'em off! Now, I want to address the issue of the hospital and the pro-
posed sales tax. The voters are going to decide if we will institute a sales
tax. The hospital board has said if it doesn't pass, they will close the
existing hospital., What I have been told by citizens is they are afraid the
tax will pass and will never be spent to build a facility, but continue to
fund the running of the hospital. Or, a new facility is built and the tax
remains in force to pay for the operation of the new building. Sounds
like no one trusts the hospital board to make good on anything. What I
would propose: Get the Governor out of it. The board could be elected
as we vote our Soil & Water Conservation Board -- totally responsible
to the taxpayer for the spending of funds. Or, the County Commission
could make it a department with the administrator being a department
head answering to them. If it passes, you can be assured I will audit the
disposition of funds to ensure the money is used for what we gave it to
them for. If it doesn't pass, I will work diligently to bring some sort of
Medical facility to Madison as a Public Safety priority. We just all need
to face this issue with eyes wide open and demand honest facts.

I am, the only candidate who has expressed an opinion about
important issues that face Madison County. I feel you need to
know how I feel about the issues in order to make an informed
decision of whom will represent you for the next four years. I
believe if you are running, you should know the issues that you
will be facing from the moment the first meeting starts. I feel I am
ready to fully participate from day one; there will be no learning
curve if I am elected. Madison County is growing at a break neck
pace. I will be fully prepared to raise fact-based arguments, debat-
ing those who continue to insist we sacrifice our quality of life for
this growth. I strongly believe we can enjoy growth and retain the
integrity that makes Madison County a great place to call home.
I am for sensible growth that benefits all citizens.

If you are a concerned citizen who agrees that I deserve a chance
to prove we can work together to benefit all Madison County
Citizens, then call someone you know in district two and encour-
age them to vote

With strong financial planning the past 4 years, our school district has become
more financially sound. We've been able to give all employees a raise each year,
as well as bringing beginning teacher pay to equal or above surrounding districts, while
at the same time seeing a reduction in property taxes of over 2 mills imposed by the
School Board. All of our schools are moving forward with the hard work and dedication
of all our teachers and staff in the district. Central School was recognized as one of the
top 100 schools in Florida for the amount of improvement made last year, as well as
Pinetta receiving an A and Lee making AYP. If re-elected, I will continue to work hard,
to spend wisely, to be fair and to be available to you at all times. I feel my 30 years in the
classroom has given me an understanding of the problems and challenges we face every-
day, as we strive to provide the best education possible to all of our children.

Just Some Of The Reasons To

Vote Against The Hospital Tax:

*No public tax money should EVER go to a government or non-government
entity that holds secret and closed-door meetings. Newspaper reporters, and
members of the public, have been told to leave board meetings. The public has
been told repeatedly by people associated with the hospital that the Florida
Sunshine Law does not apply to the Madison Hospital.

*The half-cent sales tax is deceiving. According to the County Clerk's Office,
if you buy a one-dollar item, it will cost you eight cents in tax, a cent more than
you are now paying. This would make Madison County the HIGHEST SALES
TAX county in the North Florida-South Georgia area, driving even more peo-
ple out of the county to shop.

*The hospital's Board of Directors is appointed by the Governor and DO
NOT ANSWER TO LOCAL RESIDENTS. They do not operate under the
Sunshine Law and consequently can TAKE OUR TAX DOLLARS and CAN
OPERATE BEHIND CLOSED DOORS and have STATED that they do not
operate under the Florida Sunshine Law.

*Voting against the hospital tax will not close the hospital, but simply make
them more resourceful without putting the burden on the already over-taxed cit-
izens of the county.

*There are a number of options for a new hospital, and the local hospital is
aware of them, yet they prefer maintaining control and TAXING THE LOCAL

IN DEBT and only a change in business practices can correct that problem.

County nearly $200,000/year
in emergency food costs for
their citizens in need.
There are numerous pro-
grams that help America's
Second Harvest fulfill their
missions such as Second
Helpings, Kids Caf6, Brown
Bag for the Elderly, Advocacy
and Outreach, Disaster Relief
and volunteer programs.

Second Helpings is Amer-
ica's Second Harvest of the
Big Bend's prepared and per-
ishable food rescue program.
Second Harvest's workers
partner with local grocery
stores and restaurants to pick
up excess prepared and perish-
able food that would usually
be thrown away. Second Help-
ings is crucial in feeding indi-
gent and homeless people.
Kids Caf6 is Second Har-
vest's opportunity to provide
nourishing meals or snacks for
children in after-school pro-
grams in low-income commu-
nities. Second Harvest pro-
vides the food and the pro-
grams provide a safe place for
guided activities that include
tutoring and mentoring.
Brown Bag for the Elder-
ly is a program for local fixed-
income seniors. Each month,
Second Harvest prepares and
pro\ ides brown bags of gro-
ceriesfor more than 700 elder-
ly. Second Harvest distributes
this food in the third week of
the month which is a critical
time, as many seniors' fixed
income often runs low during
this time of month.
Advocacy and Outreach
are essential elements of Sec-
ond Harvest's services. Advo-
cating for the hungry men,
women, and children Ameri-
ca's Second Harvest of the Big
Bend serve is a key compo-
nent of the mission they fulfill
each year. Through advocacy,
participation in community fo-
rums and workshops about
hunger and by collaborating
with like social service agen-
cies helps bring awareness to
the communities they serve.
Also, Disaster Relief is a
significant part of Second
Harvest's service to the com-
munity that includes first re-
sponders such as the Salva-
tion Army and the Red Cross.
This specific program
helps those who have been
touched by a disaster by pro-
viding food, basic necessity
items, and water, in addition
to some transportation Ameri-
ca's Second Harvest of the
Big Bend Volunteer Program
helps increase awareness of
hunger and poverty issues in
the community, and bring
compassionate community
members in to Second Har-
vest to assist with hands-on
solutions. Volunteer programs
include canned food drives,
product sorting at the ware-
houses in Tallahassee and
Madison and administrative
and creative tasks.
America's Second Har-
vest of the Big Bend relies on
more than 2,000 volunteer
hours each year. Volunteers
provide a variety of services,
from sorting, inspecting and
packing food for distribution,
to assisting in front-office
tasks, fund raising, and spe-
cial one-time needs such as
website updates, brochure
writing and more. Second
Harvest couldn't perform the
amount of work they do with-
out volunteers.

Happenings At

Madison First Baptist

By Nell Dobbs
"But the Lord shall endure forever; he hath prepared his throne for judgment." -Psalm 9:7
He that endureth to the end shall be saved. We.are to hold fast to the faith. We are to continue in the things we have learned
from childhood - the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make us wise unto salvation through faith in Jesus.
All scripture is given by inspiration from God that we may be perfect and full of good works. Paul is instructing Timothy.
Huge beautiful purple chrysanthemums were placed in church. Sunday in loving memory of Blalock Raines by his family.
Even though his place has been empty for many years, he is still missed, and Pearl remains faithful and always present. Bless
her and their family.
Correction from last week - Pine Grove celebrating 150 years of being a church and serving the Lord. and their annual
Homecoming. Such a blessing for so many of us to be there'
A thoughtful, unique show of love and appreciation - a rosebud given to Preacher almost every Sunday forhis lapel - the
giver doesn't wish to be known.
Sorrow in the death of Danielle Isgro, who was truly loved and cared for by her family, especially her grandparents.
Many others are ill among us. Susie Baker, still w ith tests., Norman Haynes very ill in Madison Hospital. Eddie Bevis is
recovering at home; Leona Gay recovering from her knee surgery, also Juanita Ragans; Jimmy Colvin, who is so young but so
very ill (his. mother'. heart is breaking).
Speaking of empty places in church: Y onne Smith as she no\\ lives at Dowling Park and is to have special surgery. We
pray speedy recovery for her. It was so good to see her in ser\ ice Stundai night.
A fantastic Fifth Sunday night sing ith so man a g so many making music: so ianN expressing love, thanks, . appreciation, for Billy,
our Music Minister who is leaving us after fourteen years. He has been such a blesing, such a talented musician with a com-
passionate heart who visited ill ones at home and in the hospital, always with ready prayers. We'll miss him but pray God's
richest blessings upon hini into his new church
The Fall Festival last week was enjoyed by many. Thanks to all who 'worked so hard and all who came.
Liane \V.ikefield blessed us u ith singing. Chance Choir sa.tg "Open the Eyes of My Heart."
Jesus said we'd .a1i a\ s ha\ e the poor among us and in as much as x% e ha\ e fed them, we have fed him. Our hearts are sad
for the htlncry all around the world d .and in a small %va\ e do a little by filling Rice bowls with money and bringing cheer to
man\ b\ killing Christmas shoeboxes for children.
-Wednesday Sam met at 11:30 for a meeting and covered dish luncheon.
On No ember 11, Buck and Betty Driggers will be celebrating their 50th anniversary.
May the Loid bless us one and all and help us to know His word, to use it for doctrine, for reproof, tall correction for in-
struction in righteousness.

12A The Madison Enterprise-Recorder

Of the Hospital Construction Surtax

1. According to the hospital architect for Dixon-Hughes, which works with local hospitals to satisfy department of
health hospital financial analysis needs, construction costs for a hospital about 10% larger than the present Madison
County Memorial Hospital will be about $18,100,000.

2. A one-half cent sales tax will result in about $500,000 per year, enough to service about $9,200,000 in bond debt
over a period of about 40 years. Interest rates and term offered by the USDA are about 4.5 % and term can be 40 years.

3. The open market offers rates of about 5.5 percent, repaid over 30 years. On the open market, this $500,000 in sales
tax will service about $7,275,000.

4. The additional approximate $9,800,000 in expense (using the USDA model) will come from one or more of these
sources: USDA direct loan program; Florida Hospital Association hospital construction fund.

5. As required by law, the Hospital District board (Madison County Health and Hospital Board) holds its meetings
strictly in accordance with the sunshine law.

6. The soil of the land, on South Hwy 53 offered for donation for the purpose of hospital construction, was deemed
unfit for that purpose by an engineering firm engaged specificallyto- determine its suitability.

7. As with all hospital districts in the state, the board for this hospital district is appointed by the governor. When board
opening occur, all qualified citizens, including those that are "business-minded people" can apply.

8. A hospital building's useful life is about 30 years. It isn't like a home, which houses 2-10 people. This hospital,
encompasses 100-130 employees. And, whereas a 50 year old home "sleeps at night and has only few visitors, this
hospital building has over 33,000 visitors. year and, like your heartbeat, operates NON-STOP 24 hours a day, 7 days
a week, 365 days a year, and has for over 52 years! The demands on a hospital building are enormous. How many
times is a light switch or a door operated by thousands of employees and visitors each year in a building that never
sleeps? And...it was built according to 1953 construction standards.

9. A new hospital will be only very slightly larger than the present one - size increases required by new building codes
and 2006-07 Department of Health square footage requirements fo services and for new services.

10. Madison County Memorial Hospital is a community hospital, not a specialty hospital. The plan is not to recruit
sub-specialty physicians, rather the plan is, and always has been, to recruit more family practice doctors to care for
your family's health and who serve as your guide through the labyrinth of healthcare system that encompasses such
places as Tallahassee.

11. Having a new hospital in Madison County will not save a stroke or heart attack victim the cost of a transfer to
Tallahassee - that cost will still exist - BUT having a hospital in this county will save a stroke or heart attack victim.,
their LIFE. After their life has been saved and they have been stabilized they will likely be transferred to Tallahassee
or some such place for definitive care.

12. A new hospital will save thousands of lives, and provide jobs for thousands of people over the next thirty years.
Not having a new hospital will cost thousands of lives over the next thirty years and will deplete the county economy
by $36,000,000.

13. No significant industry or business is likely to locate in a county without good healthcare for the family of its

14. There is a proposed Inter-local agreement that stipulates that the hospital will not be leased or sold to any public
or private entity without approval by the County Commissioners.

15. Construction of a new hospital does indeed mean expanded and new services. How will this be paid? MCMH is
a critical access hospital. Because of this, Medicare pays 101% of all depreciation expense, as a percentage of total
Medicare charges, on a newly constructed hospital. That depreciation reimbursement from Medicare pays the cost of
expanded services. And of course, the insurance companies pay too. And this is NEW money coming into our com-
munity, not re-circulated money.

16. This community's hospital employs about 100 full time and about 30 part-time and "as-needed" employees. These

expanded services mean even more jobs!

17. We taxpayers can pay the cost of progress and improvement and reap the benefits; or we can pay the increased cost
of taking patients on the hour trip to Tallahassee and not reap the benefits.

Apopka Looks Like The Miami Dolphins

By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
' Yes, that's what defensive
coordinator Rod Williams said
alout the Apopka Blue
Darters. "They look like the
Miami Dolphins," Williams
said. "We better be able to stop
eOery form of offense known
to man."
Coach Frankie, Carroll
said Apopka looks a lot like
Coffee County. Currently, the
Blue Darters are rated number
five in the state in their Class
w iich is 6-A. They are the
w winners of their district cham-
pionship with a season record
of 8-1. Apopka High has
around 4,000 students, Madi-
son County High has around

725. That's a big difference-
and size will be one of the is-
sues. Apopka can field around
90 players, according to Car-
roll. Madison sports a team of
'approximately 37.
. But Coach Rod Williams
also said, "It's just another.
football game to these kids. It
doesn't matter who we're
playing, they approach it the
Offensive Coordinator
Mike Coe said, "They're ex-
cited about Apopka. It's a chal-
Williams said he plans to
change his defense a little be-
cause Apopka runs five wide.
"\\e'le coing to pressure them
when they throw and top the

run," Williams said.
Apopka has a new coach
this season, one with whom
the,Madison County Cowboys
are very familiar. Rick Dar-
lington moved to Apopka from
Valdosta High, where he
coached the football, team for
three years and faced Madison
several times. He had nice
things to say about the Cow-
"Madison's got one of the
best programs in the state,"
Darlington said. "That means.
they're good every year. That's
why they have trouble finding
teams that will play them anid
end up playing teams like
Coffee Coutlty, Columbia
County, Mainland and us. We

think they'll be as good as any
team we'll see in the playoffs."
Darlington said he plans
to use the Madison game as a
barometer to see just how
good his team is going into the
6-A playoffs. "I mean if we
lose 40-0 we know we're in
trouble," Darlington said.
Darlington expects it to be
a tough game. "Our teams are
a lot alike," Darlington said.
"Madison is very physical and
we're very physical."
Darlington said his of-
fense is very young. "Our of-
fense is not our strength," Dar-
lington said. Darlington's. con-
fidence is in his defense.. He
said his front seven hae a lot
of experience. Apopka wili run

a base 4/3� defense with some
50 fronts.
About his offense Dar-
lington said," We do riot like
to thro\." He has two quarter-
backs. Derick Sha%% is a junior
and the better runner. Darling-
ton uses Shaw out of the op-
tion. Andy Summerlin is the
senior quarterback. He is the
better passer. Summerlin was
injured for several games so
Shaw started.
According to Darlington,
both quarterbacks have spent
about the same amount of
time on the field this season.
Apopka has two good
running backs. Both #22 Trav-
elle Davis and #5 Jeremy Gal-
lon are sophoimores. Darling-

ton said they are good backs.
Since Apopka runs the ball
most of the time, expect to see
these two guys on the field a
According to Carroll,
Darlington's new team runs a
similar-type of offense to the
one Madison saw last year
from Valdosta High. The Blue
Darters will be running out of
a double slot.
"It all comes down to
blocking and tackling," Car-
roll said. "That's what football
is all about."
"There's no pressure on
us this week," Coach Coe
said. "As long as we play our
best and hardest, we'll be hap-

Carroll said. "He has great in-

does good."
"Coach Carroll told me

Brinson said.
Brinson said he gets a lot
of support from his parents,

ment. But, his big dream is to

doesn't matter whether Pen-

She tries to instill the love
of learning, respect for every-
one and manners to her stu-
dents.. She considers the most
challenging thing about her
job helping students stay mo-
' tivated.
"The hard work and dedi-
cation of teaching does pay
off when you experience
those moments when a light
comes on in student's. I'm not
just a text book teacher and
I'm not just a science teacher,
I'mi a child teacher."
Emily Matthews and her
husband Preston live in Lee,

who all reside in Tallahassee.
In her spare time, she enjoys
kayaking and gardening.

ly supportive and helpful peo-
ple here at the Central

they walked through it with
their teachers and a guide.
Corn mazes are becoming a
popular fall experience. The
research station in Stuwannee
has had one for several years
in a row. Local school children
of all ages get a kick out of
getting lost inside a maze of
corridors cut into the corn.
After the children' went
through the maze, they heard a
talk on pumpkins and their im-
portance in American history.
The research facility grows
pumpkins of all sizes, big jack-

mentals and even white pump-
kins. *
i' The facility also grpws
gourds and ornamental squash.
After the talk on pumpkins, the
students got to get into the
patch and.pick a small orna-

For The Second Year In A Row

John Ovenden Grows

Gi-Normous" Pumpkin

Business & S ri

A "Gi-Normous" pumpkin is grown by a Madison
man two years in a row. John Ovenden poses with his
129-pound vegetable. (Photo submitted)

By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.,
Last year, John Ovenden
of Madison grew a really gi-
gantic pumpkin, weighing in
at 80 pounds. This year
Ovenden has topped last
year's pumpkin by more than
40 pounds.
The 2006 edition of the
Ovenden pumpkin weighs in
at 129 pounds.
Ovenden said the gi-nor-
mous pumpkin's growth was
cut short this year. It could
have been even bigger but

cows got into the patch and
stomped all over the vines,
killing them. Last year's
huge pumpkin was also
stunted. In 2005, the vines
were killed by the inadver-
tent application of pesticide.,
Ovenden said his family ac-
cidentally sprayed his pump-
kin vines!
The world record pump-
kin is 1,400 pounds. Oven-
den would like to grow a
much bigger one next year.
Let's hope the family and the
cows stay out of his patch.

From Aunt Pauline
Megan is the daughter of Curtis and Krista
Hayes. Her grandparents are Jesse and Dorethea An-
derson and Josephine Davis and Curtis Hayes, Sr.
Megan is in the 3rd grade at W.T. Moore Elenientary
School in Tallahassee. Megan has two brothers, C.C.
and Brandon Hayes. Megan writes something that
happens to her;
"One sunny Sunday when my family was having
a cookout for my grandma's birthday because my
grandpa died on her birthday so we wanted to cheer |
her up with some pink of blue balloons and thou- .
sands of people.to cheer her up a little. That Sunday
we were paining walls and cleaning like we had ant's
in our pants! We painted our house over and over so
no one would see a pinch of dirt on our wite walls.
Soon the wall were with as snow into my brother put
his dirty little hand's on the wall now we had to bey m
a gallon more and few hour's later finly we were
done and this time we cape him far away from our
walls. Ten days later there was a party. Everyone '
came even people from different States. We had
mac and chess, grilled chicken and two cakes one
home made other store boat. Everyone eat like pigs at
the dinner table. And finely grandma came but people
came before her. When she came inside everyone said
Sirpise she cried in happy ters. I know she loved it
and she ran to hug us as she hugged us I felt grandpa
hug me too!"

Madison County Health Department To

Conduct "Vote And Vax" Campaign

On Tuesday, November 7th, the Madison County Health ......... .. .
Department will be campaigning for a new candidate: "The Flu '.=-
Shot." As residents vote at two of the county's polling places,
health department staff will be on-hand to provide the conve-
nience of getting vaccinated against the influenza virus.
"There are some tight races this year, but we're hoping the
citizens of Madison County make the right choice," said Kim ..
Barnhill, the health department's administrator. "Getting the flu
shot and keeping your hands washed are the keys to victory in
the campaign against the flu."
The Election Day flu shots will cost $15 each, and will be
provided'near polling places at the Madison County Courthouse
Annex (on the courthouse lawn) and at the Senior Citizens Cen-
ter in Greenville (at the Healthy Start Coalition office) from 7:00
a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The shots are free for Medicare participants .
who bring their identification cards.
In addition to flu shots, the health department will provide
various health education materials -and helpful information to
those who visit. Madison County Health Department nurses Donna
"Our entire staff is looking forward to working at this im- Davis and Bonnie Webb give a flu and a pneumococ-
portant event," said Bonnie Webb, Director of Nursing for the cal vaccine to Leona Bass. (Photo submitted)
health department. "We'll have plenty of representatives to
share information about their programs."
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention i CDC i. approximately 5% to 20% of the U.S. population gets the
flu each year. In addition, more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu complications, and 36,000 people die from the flu.
Side effects from flu shots are rare, yet people who have never had influenza may experience about two days of discomfort'.
The health departments in Madison and Jefferson Counties received funding for the "Vote and Vax" campaign from a grant
provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. "Our grant for Madison and Jefferson Counties was one of only 25 projects in
the entire country to receive funding for this "Vote and Vax" campaign," said Shannon Jacobs, Director of Operations at the health
department. "We hope that citizens will take advantage of this unique opportunity to protect themselves against the flu virus as
they come out to vote."

inquired if there were any bed and breakfasts in town. The visi-
tor was told that there was not. Pike, who co-owns Four Free-
doms Bed and Breakfast (which is right up the road from the
Chamber) with her husband Stephen, said that she found out
about what the visitor had been told when the visitor mentioned
it at a local antiques shop.
"They were very unhappy u ith the wa. that they \\ere treat-
ed at the'Chamber," Pike added.
Pike said that she was unhappy also about the Chamber
claiming that there were no bed and breakfasts in town.
"I don't know how you do it here in the south, but in New
Zealand we get mad," Pike, a native of the South Pacific coun-
try, said.
Pike indicated that there are currently five businesses pay-
ing $80,000 in bed taxes for Madison County.

Law Officer Safety

compared with the 2004 figure (57 officers). A 5-year compari-
son shows a decrease of 15 line-of-duty deaths compared with
the 2001 number (70 officers) and a decrease of 6 compared
with the 1996 figure (61 officers).
Officer Profile: Among the officers who were feloniously
killed, the average age was 37 years. They had served in law en-
forcement for an average of 10 years at the time of the fatal in-
cidents. Fifty-four of the slain officers were male; 47 officers
Were white; and 8 were black.
Circumstances: Of the 55 officers feloniously killed, 15
were handling traffic pursuits or traffic stops. Eight of the slain
officers were handling arrest situations, and another 8 were am-
bushed. Seven of the slain officers were answering disturbance
calls, and another 7 were investigating suspicious persons. Of
the remaining 10 officers who were feloniously killed in the line
of duty, 4 were pursuing investigative activities, such as surveil-
lance; 3 were in tactical situations (e.g., high-risk entry); 2 were
handling mentally deranged persons; and 1 had custody of a
prisoner for transport.
'Weapons: Offenders used firearms to kill 50 of the 55 vic-
tim officers. Of these 50 officers, 42 were slain with handguns,
5 with shotguns, and 3 with rifles. Fifteen of the 55 victim offi-
cers who were slain fired their own weapons during the fatal in-
cidents, and 6 officers attempted to use their own weapons dur-
ing the incidents. Five officers were feloniously killed when hit
by vehicles that the offenders used as weapons.
Region: An analysis of the data by region showed that 28
of the felonious deaths occurred in the South, 10 in the West, 10
in the Midwest, and 5 in the Northeast. Two of the deaths took
place in Puerto Rico.
Suspects: Law enforcement agencies identified 57 alleged
assailants in connection with the 55 felonious lind-of-duty
deaths. All of the assailants were male, and 54 of them had pre-
vious criminal arrest records.
Accidental Deaths
Sixty-seven law enforcement officers were killed in acci-
dents while performing their duties. Automobile accidents
claimed the highest number (39) of accidental line-of-duty
The Nation's law enforcement agencies reported to the
FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program that 57,546 officers
were assaulted while performing their duties. The largest per-
centage of victim officers (30.5 percent) were assaulted while
responding to disturbance calls (family quarrels, bar fights, and
so forth). The smallest percentage of victim officers (0.3 per-
cent) were assaulted during ambush situations. Assailants used
personal weapons (hands, fists, feet, and so forth) in 80 percent
of the incidents, firearms in 3.7 percent of the incidents, and
knives or cutting instruments in 1.8 percent of the incidents. In
14.4 percent of the assaults, other types of weapons were used.

Hospital Tax
Cont. from Page 1A

Will this buy a new hospital? No. It is about half the amount
needed for construction. An architect working for Dixon-Hugh-
es, a company, that analyzes a hospital's service: needs and their
ability to provide services, says that a hospital about 10%9 larger
than the present Madison County one will cost about
$18.100.000 to construct at toda\ 's prices. Will it cost more? It
could, but what we are doing is fixing the cost first and letting
that be the guide to how much hospital we build. A hospital
costs about $300 per square foot.- So, $18,100,000 Cost / $300
per s.f. = a 60,333 square foot building (including both usable
and non-usable space).
Our current main hospital building, plus the finance build-
ing, plus the clinic, plus the home health building totals about
53,000 square feet (my. best guess for usable and non-usable
There are also land costs and the costs of furnishing a hos-
pital. I think about $750,000 is a reasonable estimate. My job
is to find ways to reduce the land and furnishings costs.
The other half of the $18,100,000 construction costs will be
paid for by a loan from either the USDA or from the Florida
Hospital Association construction loan program. This loan will
be paid back through the increased reimbursement from
Medicare mentioned earlier in this article and from increased us-
age of the hospital's services. It is nearly impossible to get these
loans unless the community makes a commitment of their own,
such as through the proposed sales tax.
That brings us to the Sunshine Law. This is a hospital dis-
trict. Hospital district board meetings are open to the public.
The board meets every third Thursday at 6:00 PM, or as posted.
When that meeting closes, a second meeting begins (made up of
the same board members).
But what if the CEO had cancer and might become unable
to continue his job? Does he have right to personal privacy?
YES. Federal privacy law gives him that right. If it is illegal,
should that issue be discussed in an open meeting? Of course
not. When legal information or personal confidentially must be
protected, these discussion are held in closed sessions. But the
public is invited to all district meetings and to all operations
meetings. Meetings aside, you are always welcome to come to
the hospital for any concern you might have.
A recent opposing editorial criticized state healthcare offi-
cials for wearing "Vote YES" buttons. Who better to understand
what is at stake? They have personally worked with other com-
munities that have allowed their hospitals to close. They under-
stand the critical role a hospital plays in the community. Also,
the Madison County Health Council voted to make the hospital
YES vote their primary project.
So, your local physicians, your local healthcare community,
and your state health officials think your YES vote is essential.
Collectively, they understand healthcare inside out. It's hard to
get any kind of unanimous agreement on a complex issue, but on
this, they agree. Take healthcare advice from healthcare profes-
sionals, not from a newspaper reporter.
The editorial goes on to ask, 'Who will the new hospital ben-
efit?' The editorial writer answered: architects, contractors, and
administration. He didn't say a word about the patient, or the
doctors, or the employees who depend on the hospital to feed
their families. Nor did he mention local subcontractors and
building supply companies who will participate in this major
construction project. Nor the others like people that fix your
car's transmission or sell things like homes, tires, food, and of
course the people who are trying to sell Madison to outside in-
dustry, which in turn will create more jobs. Nor did he mention
the healthcare community itself - the nursing homes and doctors
and pharmacists, and paramedics, and therapists, and on and on.
I have a question for that editorialist. If the hospital goes
away, then who will that benefit?
And I have a message for voters: It's your hospital, take
care of it.
