Scam Alert
By Gabe Thompson
Greene Publishing Inc.
Patricia Powell recently
received a cashier's check sent
to her from Prudential Finan-
cial Corporation out of Cana-
da. A letter accompanying the
check stated she had won a
prize in the amount of $2,950
dollars. The address on the
check said Lexington, Ken-'
tucky, but the postmark was
from an address in Canada.
When Powell called the
phone number that was listed
with the check, the person that
she talked to on the phone was
unprofessional, and the pur-
pose for the money was to pay
for insurance and processing
fees. When receiving a prize, it
isn't customary to have to pay
to get the money. This led
Powell to decide that the check
had to be a fake, so she called
the FBI and sent it to them.
The FBI told her that the
check'was a fake, and that any
money sent from a company
outside of the U.S. is illegal.
Powell called Greene
Publishing after finding out
that the check was indeed a
fake, so that no one in Madi-
son will fall for this scam.

Robotripping

Fad Grows
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Robotripping is a new fad
that teenagers have discov-
ered; however, it is not ,a fad
that parents want their children
involved in. It is one of the
fastest growing drug problems
in the country.
Robotripping involves
getting high on Robitussin, an
over-the-counter cold medica-
tion.
A study conducted by the
National Institute of Drug
Abuse revealed:
4.2 percent of eighth
graders, 5.3 percent of 10th
graders, and 6.9 percent of
12th graders reported taking
cold or cough medicines with
dextromethorphan (DXM)
during the past year to get
high. Dextromethorphan is a
cough suppressant found in
many over-the-counter cough
and cold remedies, and is gen-
erally safe when taken in rec-
ommended doses but in large
amounts can cause dangerous
side effects.
At the same time, the

The Miracle Of Friendship
"What shall we do to these men? For, indeed, that a notable
miracle has been done through them is evident to all who dwell
in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it..." Acts 4:16
The first time I ever heard the Miracle Singers perform they
were singing beside a road. Not just any road. It was not a paved
road. It didn't even have milled asphalt put down on it. Nope.
They were singing beside a dirt road.
The year was 1999 and my mother had died several months
before. I grieved over her death and I was still in mourning when
a man put up a tent at Lee Pentecostal Assembly (now Lee Wor-
ship Center) and began a revival. One evening, Larue and
Margie Lee and Sandy Coody sang there. They sang almost
every night of the revival and this wasn't just any revival. Ser-
vices lasted sometimes until almost 11 p.m. and then a meal
would be served. It was midnight when we would leave the
church grounds. I had to get up to go to work the next day and
others, including the Miracle Singers, had to get up and go to
work.
The revival was special to me in a number of ways. God's
soothing Spirit washed over me, healing my grief. Another way
that it was special to me was that my brother was able to quit
smoking during the revival. One evening, a woman (who I have
never seen before or since) spoke and said that there was some-
one who wanted to be used my God and loved to sing (my broth-
er is a great singer if I do say so myself), but there was a habit
standing in his way. I went home and told my brother when he
lit up a cigarette that he should remember what God had told
him, not what that woman had told him. The next day, he went
outside and tried to light a cigarette but he couldn't smoke it. It
made him sick. He hasn't smoked since.
A third thing was special to me. I made three lifelong friends
- Larue, Margie and Sandy.
If you ever meet Larue, you will like him. It seems like he
is always smiling. He is truly everyone's buddy and he wants
everyone to be his buddy. Margie and Sandy are also friendly,
warm people.
I'm glad that I met these people almost eight years' ago.
They have been a blessing in my life and they let the truth light
of Christ shine through, not onlyin their music, but also in their
lives.

gical ICU until Tuesday, then was moved to Cardiac ICU. She
was later moved to a regular room on Wednesday afternoon.
"She is on morphine for the pain," Karen said. "She is able
to talk to the nurse. She has some memory loss, but the doctors
say it will come back."
Karen said that Melanie would have to be in rehab for a
while, once she gets out of the hospital. Doctors estimate it
could be a year before she is able to return to school at North
Florida Community College.
Melanie's father, Bob, said on Thursday morning that
Melanie had been moved to a private room so Karen can be
close to her all of the time. He said that doctors said that her
hearing loss on one side might be permanent because of the frac-
tures, 'but that there were specialists there who were looking at
it.
"A doctor looked at her CT scan and said we were lucky to
have her with us," Bob said. "I guess with a situation like this,
you have to take the bad with the good."
Bob added: "She is able to talk now, but she is still in a lot
of pain."
"Everyone has been so sweet, calling and praying," Karen
said: "I've lived in Chicago and ,people who live in big cities
don't know what it's like to live in a small town. Everyone is so
sweet and we appreciate it. When Melanie gets better and knows
about what everyone has done, I'm sure she will appreciate it,
too."
Karen said that she was really surprised and pleased that
Melanie had made it out of ICU so fast..
"Our pretty girl's bald, but her hair will grow back," Karen
said, her voice choking with emotion over the phone. *
Karen said that Melanie can now have' visitors, but they
need to understand that they can't stay long when they visit, and
that Melanie looks different right nowv.
"When Melanie gets out of the hospital, she will have to
have 24-hour care for awhile," Karen added. -
Melanie is the daughter of Bob and Karen Wieland, the sis-
ter of Danielle and Wilhelm Wieland of Madison, and the grand-
daughter of Red and Deloris Swift of Lee.'
Melanie is a graduate of MCHS and is a former Junior Miss
Madison County. She was the first runner-up in the 2006 Miss
Madison County pageant.
Anyone wishing to send cards, flowers or other gifts to
Melanie may do so having them sent to: Shands, 1600 SW

Yes,. Virginia, You Can Prevent Stupidity
In a mid-size Georgia university town, the government op-
erated on the "good old boys" system. So when the courthouse
roof developed several leaks, county officials kept promising
they would get repairs as soon as the budget allowed. This went
on for nearly two years, with clerks moving boxes of records,
shifting shelves around, and mopping up the wet spots so people
wouldn't slip and sue.
One day while several officials were sipping their after-
breakfast coffee around the corner table at Mama's Tasty Lunch
Diner, Cud'n P.L. strolled in.
"Boys, I've got a great proposition for you," he said.
Now, Cud'n P.L. owned about a third of the county and was
kin to at least that share of the population. He was connected to
another third through his wife, Miz Murleen, who had been one
of the wealthy Grice sisters. So, everybody knew Cud'n P.L.,
and he carried a lot of clout.
His proposition? Miz Murleen's mother's cousin's son,
Emory, was trying to get into-the construction business, and
would repair the roof for $15,850 - about half of what other
companies had bid.
The officials hired Emory on the spot. Emory and his two-
man crew toted boards and saws up into the courthouse attic for
a week. Employees gave them sandwiches and coffee in grati-
tude for the sounds of hammering.
Emory announced the completion of the job; the clerk wrote
him a check; aid everyone smiled as they waved goodbye.
The firsi good rain, and the courthouse stayed dry. The sec-
ond? Same thing. Then came a real frog-strangler. Someone no-
ticed a little puddle near the entry, then another, then a steady
drip in the tax office. The tax commissioner and his. staff
climbed up into the attic. What should their wondering eyes
should appear, but a series of buckets under all the leaky spots.
These buckets were now full to overflowing.
Why am I sharing this story to start off the New Year? Just
in case you're anxious as to what 2007 might bring, think about
it. You can't possibly pull anything as stupid as the Great Roof
Caper. No way!
So relax, welcome this New Year, and always check the job
before you pay. Happy New Year!

Around The Town r
Thelma Thompson
Guest Columnist



2007 begins today on a dreary, rainy day, the typical blue
Monday but we still wish everyone a peaceful and a prosperous
New Year. We suppose, due to personal circumstances, our spir-
its should be low but they aren't. We just naturally greet each
New Year and each new day as we would an old friend, glad-
ly. After all, don't take life for granted for life may let you down.
We must have heard that somewhere.
We spent New Year's Eve alone we had family most days
through Christmas week. We had an interesting football after-
noon watching our Jaguars lose following a hard fought game as
usual. Then we really enjoyed seeing Brett Favre lead the Pack-
ers as they crushed the Chicago Bears, allowing them only one
touchdown and that at the end of the third quarter. Brett, after 16
yeas, during which he never missed a game, played as if he were
25 instead of 35. And if it were his last game as expected, he
went out on top.
Then, about 11:30, we watched New Yorkers as they waited
for the crystal ball to bring in. the New Year. There must have
been about a million people packed like sardines into Times
Square we're happy to say we were not among them. But it
wasn't the same without Dick Clark, and no one mentioned him.
So, except for the television which we turned on about
noon, it was a quiet day the phone didn't ring once and we had
one visitor, neighbor Teenie who brought our Times-Union in
and watched one hour of beautiful scenery and wildlife on the
animal channel before the gathering clouds sent her home. A
very peaceful day indeed and also not even a firecracker heard
at midnight.
This is not a quiet world, though. Following the hanging of
Saddam, our National elections, the Iran and North Viet-Nam
situations and other volatile situations as well as Chifia quietly
but successfully taking us over, most are waiting with bated
breath for 'the other shoe to fall.'
We haven't really touched on around the town in this col-'
umn but we do still have room to express our shock over the
passing of Jim Searcy and to express our deep sympathy to Bob,
Beanie, Vivian and the family. We knew nothing until we read
the paper Wednesday afternoon and found services had been at
noon that day, too late even to send flowers.
Now we'll say so long for now and study our Lee Town
Council agenda some more for our meeting is tomorrow evening
and we have much to consider. Enjoy your new year.

by a private donor that wishes to
remain anonymous," Allen said
telling her story. "This private
donor had no room for more


business of the racing world.
Then, at the ripe old age of three
he begins to fail somehow . .
not good enough, not fast
enough, not winning any mon-
ey. He wants to, but he just
doesn't have it in him. And


kill pen," Allen said. "I could
hear the melee in the back-
ground and it was horrifying.
These are always gut-wrenching
decisions for the very reason
that we can't save them all."
"As of this afternoon we
were able to rescue 17 thorough-
breds from slaughter due in part
to many of your efforts and an
"angel" as I would like to call
her," Kelly, one of those who go
into the kill pens and choose
which ones will live, posted on
the Tim Wooley website,
www.timwoolleyracing.com.
"By giving us those enter-
taining updates on the boys and
girl you are personalizing the
horse slaughter movement," link
member Breton Bill said. "It is
one thing to say, oh, 90,000
horses were slaughtered last
year. By looking at your pic-
tures and reading your accounts
of the New York boys, we can
see that every horse that goes to
slaughter has a name, they have
a past, they were cared for by
someone, and these, every pic-
ture, represents all of these hors-
es that were not so lucky. A di-
vine finger pointed down and
said 'You get to live, you get to
be rescued,' and others get to
die. The chestnut gelding from
the broker page got to live,
while the two others beneath
him with prices of $200-$300
probably are on a: truck to Illi-
nois or Canada."
The names of the horses
are: Flanker, Beauty To. A T,
who is the only little girl in the
bunch, Limone Forte, Sprin
Buck, Dan-D,. which is a new
name for this one, as his tattoo
cannot be read....and Comfort-,
able Shoes. The second four
are: Reverse Psychology, Ac-
tion Request, Foxy J.R. and
Dildei;.a.warhorse, with a lot of ,
money in winnings. The second
four turned into eight with the
addition of Bretonbill's Choice,
(the chestnut gelding Breton Bill
mentioned in his quote), two
mares Marie and Katie and
Sampson the mule, an Andrea
present to Jack who loves
mules.
"The irony of receiving.
these precious gifts during
Christmas week has not been
lost on us," Andrea stated. "Just
think, there are 13 horses that
were as good as dead, thrown on
the rubbish heap of life, that are
now coming home. As we see it,
these precious ones are coming
to us more victorious than from
any race they ever won 6n the
track. They are brave,, and they
are noble, and they have beaten
the odds...horrible odds, and we
are so glad that they did."
When Allen's vet was able
to read Dan-D's tattoo, Allen
discovered Dan-D had a name.
It's Golden Strike. Golden
Strike is three yeais old. He was
born and bred in Ocala not more
than an hour and a half from
here.
"I can't explain it, but it is
always so thrilling to find out
who they REALLY are," Allen
said. Through his name she was
able to look into Golden Strike's
backgrounds.
"So, Golden Strike has
come nearly full circle," she
said. "He has come home to
within an "inch" of where he be-
gan. And. what a trip it was. As
we have all said so many times,
the brain just can't completely
comprehend how it can all begin
on a beautiful farm at
Ocala...the birth of a pretty little
foal with a blaze on his face. He
is started as a two year old with
high hopes riding on him...vi-
sions of glory in the future for
both he and his connections.
And for a little while he is all
right. Came in first a couple of
times, he was able to collect
$22,840 for his efforts. But that
is not good enough in the hard


sometime after his last race on
November 4, 2006, the decision
is made that he is costing more
money than he is worth. He is
labeled a "dud", and worse.
Very quickly the trucks come,
and the pretty little horses that
have been labeled "duds" have
to go...next stop a kill pen in
Bainbridge, New York."
Several of Allen's boys
from New York were winners.
"Many of them had successful
careers at the very least, and
some of them, one could say,
had stellar careers" Allen said.
"How sad that this is how they
were rewarded for their success-
es, by being sent to slaughter.
These beautiful specimens were
rescued frightened and cold,
from a filthy pen, trapped in
three feet of a slimy muck of
mud and manure. It is so diffi-
cult to comprehend how this can
happen. But the fact is that it
does. And now, as we see it,
our job is to make it up to
them....to restore their digni-
ty.,..to restore their peace....and
even :the fact. that their names
have been restored to them is no
small item to horses that have
had everything taken from
them."
"The last time I met this
group of horses they wqre stand-
ing in the kill pen, and as Andrea:
so explicitly described, stripped
of all their dignity," said Lisa,
who works for Lost and Found
Rescue, the organization that,
went to the kill pens, bought
these horses and found owners
for them. "No longer known by
their name given to them by,
their breeders, not a caring soul
to groom them and fuss with
them, the only remnants of their
,lives were their racing plates,
still left on them ,as they're as
disposable as the lives that wear
them."
Lisa works with Kelly
finding horses in the kill pens
for rescue. They don't want
their actual names known.
"One of the things that we
have to be careful about is that
they don't like certain kinds of
publicity because of the kind of
work they do," Allen said.
"For instance, in order to main-
tain a good working relation-
ship with the kill pen people.
they never want their
names.....the kill pen folks....to
have their names known. This
is a very, very hard and dirty
business.
"I work extra hard because
if anybody ever felt abandoned
it must have been them," Allen
said about her horses. "Lonely,
frightened, no place to

said, 'You, you, you, you, you,

ty can never say thank you

midst of an utterly desolate sit-
uation. They would not be here
today if Lisa had not chosen
them in the first place. There is
always a beginning and that
was theirs."
Another one of Allen's
boys from New York has a win-
ning past. Dildei, is a 15-year.
old veteran of the track. He ran
122 times, with lifetime earn-
ings of $276,570. Dildei had 23
wins, 18 places, and 23 shows.
How do horses that win so.
much for their owners end up in
a pen designated for slaughter?
"How Dildei ended up in a kill
pen is still a question that has
yet to be answered," Allen said'.
Action Request earned
over $239,000 in his seven
years of racing, including six
first place wins. He was a will-
ing horse who worked hard for
his owners and ended up in the
kill pens anyway. Foxy J.R. is
another of Allen's winners. He
is nine-years old, had 95 starts
including 10 wins, 15 places,
and one show and his career
earnings were $149,486. He
last raced November 15 of this
year and then for-whatever rea-
son, ended up in the kill pens,
shortlythereafter.
"I just found out 'that
Limone Forte ran his last race
on October 20, 2006,"Allen
said. "He was subsequently
sold to someone on the back-
side that said that he had a
"nice" home for him... a girl
that wanted to ride him. But, in
fact, Limone was headed, for
slaughter and .was eventually
found in a New York kill pen."
That's one of the terrible
truths about the horse business.
Kill buyers are out there look-
ing for more meat on the hoof
to send to the slaughter plants.
As weird and terrible as it
sounds, they lie to horse owners
who need to sell their horses or
want to find their horses a good


cont from Page 1A

home. The owner gets the mon-
ey and the secure knowledge
his horse is going to a good
home. But often, that is not the
fact. And the other reality is,
there are thoroughbred trainers
and owners who don't care.
"The boys from New York
are just some of the poster boys
for our next onslaught against
horse slaughter in America,"
Allen said. She has been post-
ing their pictures on the website
along with her daily notes.
"The fight has only just begun.
And Limone Forte, and Sprin
Buck, and Comfortable Slip-
pers, and Flanker, and Dan-D,
and Beauty To a T will be at the
forefront of the continuing
campaign to end horse slaugh-
ter. And we will be able to say
at the end of their lives that
they did not live in vain, and
that their terrible ordeal was not
for nothing, but for a purpose.
"We remain very emotion-
al over the whole thing, know-
ing that in a matter of hours
these precious horses would
have been lost forever and in a
barbaric fashion at that," Allen
said. "Thank God it was not to
be."
After unloading the last of
the horses brought to their
Madison ranch from New
York, Allen said, "This has
been a long day, a tiring day,
an exhilarating day, an alto-
gether blessed day both for us,
and for 13 horses, and one bo-
daciously handsome mule, ac-
cording to Jack, that have a
home to call their own tonight:
They have a pride of place.
They belong now. They are no
longer orphans of the storm,
wondering whether they will
live or die. Thirteen of the
most beautiful horses we ever
saw, and one riiuch loved mule
who thinks he is a Thorough-
bred, have, after a very, long
day, drifted off into a dream-
land where there is nothitig but
carrots, and apples, and
spearmint, and stud muffins,
and everything that make hors-
es happy. They aren't afraid to
dream anymore because there
is a tomorrow!!"

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Michael Browning, an
award-winning journalist for
the Palm Beach Post and the
Miami Herald, died of liver
failure on Saturday, December
30, at Shands Hospital in
Gainesville. He was 58 years
old.
Browning was born in
Valdosta, Ga. on October 28,
1948, and spent the. first two
years of his life in Lovett, liv-
ing on his grandmother's farm.
His family moved to Jack-
sonville when he was two
years old and he graduated
from Bishop Kenny High
School in 1966. He received a
scholarship to Columbia Uni-
versity, where he graduated
with a Bachelor's and a Mas-.
ter's degree, majoring in Latin.
He had planned to go into
teaching, until the Army draft-
ed him in 1972.
While in the Army, he got
into journalism, working at the
Fort Belvoir, Va. Post newspa-
per for five months.
After teaching Greek and
Latin for a year in Rome, Italy,
he applied for a job at the
Florida Times-Un.'on in Jack-
sonville. He worked there for
three years before being hired
by the Miami Herald, where
he worked for 20 years. Nine
of those years were spent in
Asia.
A brief interlude brought
Browning back to Madison
County, where he covered
news in the north Florida area
for the Herald.
Writing about Browning
in a column for the Palm
Beach Post, his colleague
Scott Eyman said: "A newspa-
per staff is a lot like a large,
typically dysfunctional family,
with its share of cranks, bust-
outs and perennial children.
Every once in a while, there.is
a responsible adult. In the
large, extended, oddly-loving
family of The Post, Mr.
Browning was the eccentric
uncle that both the children
and the adults adored."
Browning is survived by
two sons: Matthew, 25, a free-
lance colorist for Marvel
comics, and Noah, 21, a John
Jay scholar, studying at Co-
lumbia; by a half-sister, Bar-
bara Brown, of Dunedin, and
by a sister, Eve, of Duluth,
Minn.
Local relatives include an
aunt, Marianne Green, as well
as a number of cousins.

Tips for* I Paret oHlpYu enAvod ee PegnI


*Be clear about your own values and attitudes.
Communicating with your kids on sex, love and
relationships is usually more .successful when you
are clear in your mind about your values and atti-
tudes towards these issues.
*Talk with your kids early and often about sex.
Kids have a lot of questions. Be open and honest
with your kids. Let them know where you stand
on these issues and why you take these positions.
If you have trouble starting the conversation, con-
sider situations on t.v. shows or movies as con-
versation starters. Age appropriate conversations
should begin early and continue through adoles-
cence.
*Know your kid's friends and their families.
Friends have a strong influence pn each other -
often sharing wrong information. Help your kids
become friends with kids whose families share
your values.
*Discourage early, frequent and steady dating.
Let your child know your strong feelings on this
throughout their childhood.


*Let your kids know you value education highly.
Encourage your kids to take school seriously and
set goals. Be involved with school activities and
other community services or events.
*Help your kids have options for the future that
are more Attractive Than Being a Teen Parent.
Help them set meaningful goals. Talk regularly
about what it takes to reach those goals.
*Know what your kids are reading, watching
and listening to. The media is full of material
sending the wrong messages. Talk with your kids
about what they see on t.v or listen to.
*Establish a strong relationship with your kids.
Express love and affection often. Be supportive
and interested in what interests them. Help them
build self esteem. Make family time.

Boys' Choir Of Tallahassee Performs At NFCC Jan. 13th


The Madison County
Charmettes and North Florida
Community College will pre-
sent a special concert of the
world-renowned Boys' Choir
of Tallahassee, at 6 p.m., Sat-
urday, Jan. 13 at Van H. Priest
Auditorium. The project is to
raise funds for NFCC scholar-
ships. Tickets are $10 each.
The Charmettes, a service
club of civic-minded women,
is working with NFCC to
bring in the popular Boys'
Choir. NFCC is providing
stage, technical and public re-
lations support. More than
70% of NFCC students receive
some type of financial aid or
scholarship support to attend
college.
"We are very much look-
ing forward to having the
Boys' Choir of Tallahassee
come to North Florida Com-
munity College for this perfor-
mance. We know it will be a
sold-out event and that the per-
formance will be superb," said
NFCC President Morris G.
Steen, Jr.
Tallahassee Boy's Choir is
a community outreach pro-
gram of the Florida State Uni-
versity School of Social Work
for at-risk males who come
from schools throughout the


Tallahassee area. The founder
and director of the Boys' Choir
of Tallahassee is Dr. Earle Lee,
Jr. Begun in 1995 with 25
members, the choir now serves
125 members, ranging in ages
of 7 to 18 years old.
With its motto "No Excuses,"
the choir that accepts all appli-
cants has grown in popularity
on the local, state, national,
and international levels.
Choir members receive in-
tensive counseling and acade-
mic tutoring. Since its first
member graduated from high
school in May 1998, every se-
nior has received a scholarship
at a major college or universi-
ty.
The Choir was selected to
represent the state of Florida at
the Millennium celebration in
Italy. The members spent ten
days performing in Rome, Flo-
rence, Venice and Milan. But,
of all its performances, the Tal-
lahassee Boy's Choir is most
proud of their participation in
the International Music Festi-
vals. The choir competed
against 165 ensembles from
across the world in Freeport,
Bahamas, and received the
Grande Sweepstakes Award,
recognizing the ensemble with
the highest score. The choir's

January Is

SNational Donor

+ blood Donor


By Ashley Bell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Designated by Richard Nixon in
1970, January is National Blood Donor
Month, Blood banks are always in dire
need of donations due to holiday travel,
frigid weather, and illness. Statistics
show that 25 percent of Americans have,
had, or will have at least one blood trans-
fusion in their lifetime, but only 5 per-
cent of eligible donors actually donate
blood. To be eligible, one must be at
least 17 years of age (16 years with
parental consent form), weigh at least
110 pounds, and have not donated blood
in the past 8 weeks (56 days).
Other restrictions include, but are
not limited to: bleeding conditions; hav-
ing received a blood transfusion in the
past 12 months; tested positive for He-
patitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV or AIDS; di-
agnosed with sickle cell disease or active
tuberculosis; have gotten a tattoo in the
past 12 months; pregnancy; or have trav-
eled out of the U.S.
Local blood drives are held at the
Madison Winn Dixie on Base Street and
Madison County High School. and are
sponsored by both the American Red
Cross and the Southeastern Community
Blood Center.
On December 29, the blood drive,
sponsored by the American Red Cross,
brought in 21 pints of blood, which had
the capability to save 63 to 84 lives.
"The American Red Cross really ap-
preciates the people of Madison County,
especially during the holiday season,"
says Julie Ford, who is with the Ameri-
can Red Cross. The blood drive lasted
one day, for about five hours.
Southeastern Community Blood
Center of Tallahassee sponsored the
Madison Rotarn Club conirunit\ drive
on November 9. and collected 23 dona-
tions. One of the donors. CindN Bennett.
has been donating blood since the


Cindy Bennett, a blood donor,
works at the Workforce Develop-
ment Board of Madison County as
their Quality Manager.
1980's, and commented that the process
is "easy" and very "comfortable." The
blood center needs 750 donations a week
to serve the hospitals in 26 counties in'
North Florida and South Georgia. The
office is located at 1731 Riggins Road in
Tallahassee and is open Monday through
Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays, 9
a.m. to 1 p.m. To contact them, call 1-
850-877-7181. The next local blood dri-
ve will be April 26, at Madison County
High School from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
During a blood drive, the health his-
torians take the blood pressure and tem-
perature of potential donors. The donor
will then need to. answer 50 questions
concerning his/her lifestyle, habits, and
traveling. The entire process takes about,
one hour but the actual blood donation
takes about 8 to 15 minutes, and each
donor is provided with juice and cookies.
Before going to donate; the donor should
eat. a full, well-balanced meal and drink
lots of fluids., Also, a photo ID is re-
quired when donationing.

It's Me God!
Many people find it hard to cope this time of year.
The trees are bare, and the weather is frigid. It seems
there's nothing moving. Life seems to be at a stand-
still.
However, spring will come. New life will sweep over the land. The trees
will bloom, grass will grow, the animals will awaken from their winter
slumber. It will be a time of rebirth.
This is the promise of Jesus Christ. With His birth, life and death, He
gave the promise of eternal life to mankind. He died to save you from the
eternal death of your sins.like the promise of spring, you have the prom-
.ise of life everlasting in Heaven.
Whenever you're tempted to despair, remember that spring WILL come
again. Life will renew itself. Spiritually, it is the same for you.

Happenings At Mc

By Nell Dobbs
What a blessed'Christmas season! God's gift His Son!
The gift of life! The gifts of family and being together! The gift
of love! The gift of health! The gift of church! Churches -
and being able to attend! All gifts innumerable!
"The Man who kneels to God can stand up to anything." -
Lewis H. Evans
Sweet, sweet Spirit among us Sunday, even though atten-
dance was slim. Chancel Choir sang "Holy and Mighty." Al-
ston Kelly spoke to us of his love for the Lord and the mission
of the Gideons. We give thanks for them placing Bibles in so
many places 183 countries and 189 languages and thanks for
the freedom to do so, and for being free to do so in our own
country. Amen! We pray blessings upon all who do so and a
special prayer for Alston and all his family.
Then Preacher Brad gave us a backward look on 2006 and
a look forward to 2007, as he used Psalm 113. Also, he admon-
ished us, as believers, to humble ourselves and pray and turn
from our wicked ways, so that God will heal our land.
Sunday the 7th, there is to be a reception for Preacher
Larrabee and family as we give thanks for his labor among us
and as we pray for them in their new field.
Many are ill and need prayer Margaret Morris went back
to Lake Park, Mary Bush is also there with her son Tommy, who
isn't doing well. Brett Cdpeland is still having tests, our
nephew, Gary Roberts, of Lake Butler is in Shands and not do-,
ing well. Travis Page (what a mistake I made last week by
putting John's name instead of his. I couldn't believe it and am


adison First Baptist

so sorry.) Melanie Wieland is at Shands and is slowly improv-
ing, but with a long way to go.
Our hearts are sad, as death has come. Pray for Carol Lun-
dell and John and Nancy in the death of Don, and for grand-
daughters Stacey, April, and Melissa. Pray for the family of
Jimmy Dixon's Aunt Pearl Blair, and for the families of two
young fellows killed in accidents. And, for Johnson Bibb in the
death of his brother in Tennessee.
We give thanks to Jimmy and Hilda for hosting their annu-
al "after Christmas get-together." On Sunday night, their 10
month-old granddaughter, Glory, fell off the bed and was taken
to South Georgia, with no ill effects, Thank the Lord! We pray
for her dad, Eugene, and Grace, her older sister, who left the 3rd
for a 12-day mission trip to India, for souls to be saved.
The Youth of the Association had a great New 'Year's Eve
party at Concord Baptist.
In the funeral services of President Ford, one of the speak-
ers, spoke of him exonerating President Nixon and giving him a
clear name. It made me think of our recent evangelist, Richard
Cors, of Gulf Shores, Alabama, who had many prison records
and was saved on Saturday as a deacon, and spent many hours
talking about Jesus. He got out of prison and years later Presi-
dent Ford exonerated him. He has a great prison ministry today.
And now we pray, "0 Lord, You are our Father;
We are the clay,
And you are our Potter;
And we are the work of Your Hand."

Isaiah 6 4:5

"Aimn Higher"

A young man kissed a girl.on the chin. "Look," she said,
"aim higher."
You never rise higher than your ideal. You must put your
standard of living where the Lord put it, and strive to attain it.
You must set giving above getting, morality above money,
principle above popularity, the Word above the world.


It's right to be contented with what you have, never,with what you are. You must strive to be a bet-
ter Christian tomorrow than you are today.
The Living Bible says, "Let heaven fill your thoughts; don't spend your time worrying about things
down here."
Like the girl said, "aim higher."

MADISON COUNTY HISTORY


The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 9A


Madison County







SLIC LIBR


By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison County
Public Library was established
in 1952 by the diligent efforts
of hard working women: the
Woman's Club, the Business
Woman's Club and the Junior
Woman's Club. The group
was formed as a Library com-
mittee and the committee was
chaired by Julia Barnwell
The library was first lo-
cated in a red brick building
known as the Florida Normal
Institute. With a few brick do-
nations and volunteers, the
Madison County Library be-
gan.
The first county librarian
was Mrs. R.L. Millinor. In
1952, the library was moved
into the Old Jail building. The
Board of County Commis-
sioners donated the use of the
building to the Library Associ-
ation,.. a department, of the
Madison Woman's Club. The
open house for the county li-
brary, located at the Old Jail,
took place on -December 1,
1954. ,,
In March 1959, Public Li-
brary Consultant for the Flori-
da State Library Department,
Ruth Marshall and Director of
Suwannee River Regional Li-
brary, Henry Blasick, met in
Madison with a group of
Madisoln Count\ educators
and civic organizations to dis-
cuss the possibility of the
Madison Library becoming a
member of the Suwannee Riv-
er Regional Library. Blasick's
proposition was to bring
Madison into a seven-county
regional system that consisted
of Suwannee, Lafayette,
Madison. Hamilton, ,Taylor,


Columbia and Gilchrist coun-
ties, with Live Oak as its head-
quarters. Due to the growing
need for library service in rur-
al areas, Blasick explained the
federal government's library
law and the necessary steps to
be taken to obtain state and
federal monies.
With county, state and
federal aid, two bookmobiles
would be equipped to serve
. the schools with library ser-
vice, provide -an audio-visual.
program, increasing library
hours and providing a summer
reading program. The Suwan-
nee River Regional Library
system was created in 1958 to
serve Suwannee and Lafayette
counties and was the first re-
gional library in the State of
Florida. County contributions
were matched by state funds
to complete libraries in each
county i seat and. finance a
bookmobile route .through the
area.
On May 6, 1959, the
Madison County Commission
voted to join the regional sys-
tem. This act completed the
seven-county system. The first
deposit of new books under
the regional system consisted
of 500 books, suited to
preschool children through
teenagers. The new library
hours were 1 p.m. 5 p.m.
e\enr da\. except for Thuis-
days.
The Suwannee River Re-
gional Library received a fed-
eral grant of $50,000 for li-
brary improvements. This fur-
nished additional regional

Henry Blasick was the
first Director of the Suwannee
River Regional Library.
Presently, Danny Hales was
the Director and still serves in
the capacity today. In 1984,
Hales informed the County
Commissioners of Federal
funds that were available to
construct public libraries. On
December 20, 1984, Madison
County commissioners gave
Hales the authorization to seek
funds for a new Madison
County Public Library.
After two years, enough
funds had been raised and in
June 1986, the Library Com-
mission found a new site lo-
cated on North Florida Junior
College (NFJC) property. The
library was given a fifty-year
lease plan and was the only.
contract in the state of Florida
between a college and a public
library.
In July 1987, the new
Madison County Public Li-,
brary held its groundbreaking;
ceremony, and the cost of the,
library totaled approximately
$220,000. At the ceremony, a
special thank was given to the
Library Fund Committee
which consisted of Allen
Cherry, Bob Valentine, Jackie
Johnson, Alma Twiggs and
Danny Hales.
Special guests included
President of NFJC, Bob Ram-
sey, and the Mayor of Madi-
son, Clarence Ganzy. '
It was not soon after the
groundbreaking ceremony
that disaster, struck on
April,19 1988. A tornado
struck Madison in the early


morning hours destroying
homes, buildings, the new li-
brary, and the auditorium of
NFJC. ,Madison County was
determined to rebuild a new
library and did so. The dedi-
cation ceremony was held on
April 2, 1989.
' May 1997 was the dawn-
ing of a new age for the li-
brary. The first computer ar-
rived. and the Madison Li-
brary's Internet Web Page
was out online at


http://www.madisonfl.org/li-
brarv/madlib.html. Today,
the website address is
www.neflin.org/srrl.
Today, the Madison
County Public. Library is
standing proudly, and offers
fiction and non-fiction
books, large print books, pa-
perbacks, books on cas-
sette/CD, magazines, maps,
newspapers, music CD's,
videocassettes and DVDs and
much more. Additionally, the

brary offers Internet access, a

DESMOND GEE

Named To First Team All-League

In The Sun Belt Conference


By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Desmond Gee only gradu-
ated from Madison County
High this year, and already he
is garnering college honors as
a wide-out and as a running-
back. Gee was recently named
to the Sun Belt Conference All
League First Team as a fresh-
man. Even though he was not
named Freshman of the Year
for the league, he was the
ONLY freshman named to the
first Team.
All League First Team
members were voted on by
Sun Belt Conference coaches
and media members.
"I am really happy for all
these players because they are
very deserving of the recogni-


.r



Desmond Gee
tion," said head coach Rick
Stockstill. "They each had
outstanding seasons at their
position. When a team has
success, then individuals are
honored, and each player will
tell you they could not have
had the year they did without


their teammates."
Gee has totaled 18 recep-
tions and 288 yards; is the
third-highest rusher on the
Blue Devils team; scored eight
touchdowns total; and reached
the end zone in six straight
games.
On December 26, Gee and
his team the Blue Raiders, par-
ticipated in the Motor City
Bowl. This was a first Divi-
sion 1-A Bowl appearance for
the Blue Raiders in eight sea-
sons of football. Middle Ten-
nessee lost to Central Michi-
gan 31-14. Gee made nine re-
ceptions in the game for 63 to-
tal yards. He returned a punt in
the fourth quarter for 39 yards,
setting up Middle Tennessee's
final touchdown.


FHSAA To Celebrate 100

Years Of Florida High School


Football During 2007 Season


By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
In 2007, the Florida High
School Athletic Association
(FHSAA) will celebrate 100
years of Florida high school
football. The announcement
came during the FHSAA foot-
ball finals at Dolphin Stadium,
early in December.
The celebration of the be-
ginning of high school foot-
ball will be just one of several
to come over the next 10
years.
"We're very excited about
this," FHSSA director of
Communications Jack Wat-
ford said. "It's going to take a
lot of work and a lot of people
and time to pull all this togeth-
er."
Watford hopes to be able
to release something new
every week during the 2007
football season. "We're still
working on the plans," Wat-
ford said. "We want to have
something to release about the
history of high school football
in Florida every week.
"The Association has
records that indicate five high
schools formed a league and
were playing interscholastic
football in 1907," said Wat-
ford. "While there may have
been attempts between some
of those schools to play a
game prior to that time, it ap-
pears that the 1907 league was
the first organized effort to
play the sport interscholasti-
cally."
Watford added that it also
appears that football was the
first sport of any kind that was
played interscholastically in
Florid. Competition in basket-
ball and track and field came
later."
The five schools in that
first league were: Duval (Jack-
sonville); Hillsboro (Tam-
pa);Ocala; Orlando; and Sum-
merlin Institute (Bartow). Of
those five schools, only Hills-
boro now spelled Hillsbor-
ough still exists today. The
FHSAA was not formed until
1920.
FHSAA has already made
some plans for the celebration,
including the formation and
selection of the "All-Time All-
Florida Team." This all-time
greatest team will consist of
the greatest players, by posi-
tion, in Florida high school
history, including naming the
greatest player and coach of
all time, along with the selec-
on of the single greatest team
ever play the game in Flori-
Watford added that he has


hopes of naming the top 10 to weigh in, as well by giving
teams to play high school them an online vote through
football in Florida, and maybe FHSAAsports.com."

Snapping His Way Into College
Jay Culpepper has been long snapping a
football since the ninth grade, where he was
goofing around and tried snapping the ball. It
took off from there. Culpepper has been a
-^ '^ four-year varsity starter at both offensive
tackle positions and as a long snapper. He
stated, "There's a lot more to it than just snap-
S ping the ball between your legs."
Being a long snapper is a high skill posi-
S *" s tion. The snapper has to make a tight spiral-
ing pass between his legs with the defensive
A : _tackles breathing down, his neck.
"-. Culpepper can snap the ball consistently at
Si a speed of 0.72 seconds per snap, which is up
there with the speed of NFL snappers.
When snapping the ball, it's either a good
snap or a bad snap, there is no in- between.
S "When on the field, you don't want to hear
S"' your name get called on the loudspeaker, be-
cause it's always when you do something
S... bad," stated Culpepper. Long snappers rarely
get any credit when they make a good snap,
.- but they can lose their starting job if they
make a bad one.
In the middle of the 2006 season, Culpep-
per broke his foot. He managed to miss only
three games He would go out onto the field
with a cast on his foot to snap the ball, and he
Jay Culpepper would come out afterwards. He is currently at
100% health and, he was able to finish the last
five games of the season. "I made the best out of it I did what I had to do," stated Culpepper.
Culpepper gives a lot of credit for his success to the Madison football program. "It's amazing
what they are doing out there," said Culpepper, "Coach Coe and Coach Carroll are sculpting some
great athletes."
The players are still allowed to work out at the school. "The school is doing a lot to promote
their players," he said, "They are putting our names out to those that matter." Culpepper stated,
"The team is well conditioned and well disciplined,"
He will graduate from Madison County High School in.May, and he plans to sign up to play
for FSU next season. He currently has a GPA of 3.0. He scored a 21 on his ACT, and he is a mem-
ber of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He has had several accolades for football. In 2005, he
had a #1 ranking at the New Orleans Ray Guy Camp, and he was ranked 18th nationwide as a
long snapper. Culpepper was one of two invited high school seniors to Shane Hackney's Super
Star Camp in the summer of 2006, and he was invited to, and he participated in Springrivals.com
and the Nike combine.
He said he looks up to his father arid his coaches. His parents are Jack and Angela Culpepper.
Jay Culpepper wanted to give some credit to his holder Drew Douglas. He said, "He)s the best
holder I've ever seen. He snagged some bad ones." He also gave credit to the punter DJ Folsom,
stating, "He never had a bad punt."

Modern Hunters Over-Equipped
And Extremely Specialized
I was out jogging the other day and a man passed me in a
truck going about one mile an hour with his head stuck out the
window. (Now you know how fast I jog.) Anyway, I took a
break, thank goodness, and asked him what he was up to. He
said he was out'hunting??? He was driving down the dirt road
looking for a deer sign. Poor deer. It hardly seems fair.
Hunting to me conjures up images of Davy Crockett, coon-
skin caps, rifles slung over the arms of.men tramping through
brush or stuck firmly in scabbards off the sides of a horse. Now-
a-days nothing could be further from the truth.
For starters, no self-respecting hunter of today would ven-
ture even close to the woods without cloaking himself in cam-
ouflage. Camo comes in a green bushy motif, brown dead leaves
and even desert tans. This clothing keeps the hunter invisible
when he's in the woods mounted on his ... nope, not a horse,
but his trusty all-terrain vehicle. ATVs have replaced Trigger.
The typical hunter now loads his night-vision glasses, his
cooler filled with liquid refreshments, other assorted necessities
and of course, his rifle onto the ATV, and off he goes to track the
elusive deer, or turkey, or hog or coon.
And let's not forget the dogs.. Even dogs have become spe-
cialized. There are dogs for deer, dogs strictly for hogs, coon
dogs, tracking dogs, treeing dogs and non-treeing dogs. Now if
you're taking the dogs hunting, you'll need to take the pick-up
truck, fully equipped with dog boxes on the back, and gun racks
in the back window.
It's a wondrous sight to behold when you drive by a field in
the Fall and spot a man sitting on a platform that seems to be
floating in air, but is actually attached to a tree. Below him in the
field COULD be a little corn.
Hunting sure has come a long way since Daniel Boone.
