Tobacco Buyout Payments In Mailboxes
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
If former tobacco growers in
Madison County haven't received
their, tobacco buyout payments this
month, they should soon.
Every January, tobacco quota
holders and producers receive the
Tobacco Transition Payment Pro-
gram (TTPP) payments to help them
with the transition to the free market.
Most of the contracts are for 10
years and the others are for nine
The Fair and Equitable Tobacco
Reform Act of 2004, signed by Pres-
ident Bush on October 22, 2004,
ended the Depression-era tobacco
quota program and established the'
TTPP. The program provides annual
transitional payments for 10 years to
eligible tobacco quota holders and
producers. Payments began in 2005
and continue through 2014. Pay-
ments are funded through assess-
ments of approximately $10 billion
on tobacco product manufacturers
According to Michael Allbrit-
ton, local Farm Service Agency di-
rector, there are currently 57 con-
tracts assigned in Madison County.
These contracts include owners and
"I think the tobacco buyout is a
benefit to the. farmers," Allbritton
said. "I haven't heard them complain
Allbritton said that he felt the
reason that he didn't hear the farm-
ers complain much is that they had
prepared for the buyout.
"You have some of your older
farmers who were ready to taper
out," he said, "and some of the
younger farmers can use the money
to invest in something else."
Allbritton said also .that the to-
bacco prices had dropped and were
not what they once were.

GAS PRICES DROP IN AREA
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Gas prices continue to drop and
are expected to drop even lower next
The reason for the drop, analysts
indicate, is because of the lower
crude oil prices. Crude oil has
dropped 30 percent from its record
highs this past summer.
Currently, gas is selling for
$2.28 at its lowest in Madison Coun-
ty. In Valdosta, Ga., gas sold for
$1.97 per gallon at Sam's Club and
for $1.98 per gallon at the Shell sta-
tion and at the Raceway station on

Letters to the Editor are typed word for word, comma for comma, as sent to this newspaper. Madison County
State Commissioners Hear Concerns On Coal Plant Extension Service
Din"" I ulas
When the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) heard
Taylor Energy Center (TEC) Project Manager Mike Lawson tes-
tify last week about TEC's plans to give the City of Perry $5
million to help pay for a rail bypass to help resolve problems
that would be caused by the doubling of rail traffic through Per-
ry for coal shipments to their proposed 800-megawatt coal-fired
power plant, commissioners expressed great concern for the oth-
er Florida counties, including Madison, that would also be heav-
ily impacted by coal train traffic.
During public testimony, Baker County Commissioner Alex
Robinson said CSX continuously violates the law in their coun-
ty by blocking their roadway much longer than their ordinance
permits, often preventing emergency vehicles from being able to
respond to calls and making it difficult for residents to get to
work. The coal trains would only worsen current problems.
The Commission also heard testimony on rail concerns
from citizens of Madison County, the only county that would be
affected as seriously as Taylor since all coal trains would have
to run through Madison County to get to Perry from the pro-
posed plant's coal sources in Jacksonville, Tampa and
PSC Commissioner Matthew Carter II said the increase in
rail traffic is a serious concern that must be addressed. "It's our
responsibility to consider citizenry," Carter said.
Carter emphasized to Lawson that, in tlme process of deter-
mining the type of plant, TEC should have figured the costs to
get raw materials for energy from point "A" to point "B."
Lawson stated he would be willing to sit down and meet
with leaders from the other counties affected by increased rail
traffic. However, he said that CSX would ultimately be respon-
sible for the rail traffic on those routes, not TEC.
Rail shipments of coal are a growing concern among lead-
ers nationwide. Last year the Chairwoman of the Arkansas Pub-
lic Service Commission, Sandra Hochstetter, said, "We're going
to have a really huge problem if railroads aren't held account-
able for reliable deliveries and reasonable prices (Pittsburgh
Post Gazette, March 15, 2006)." The same article states that "a
growing group of members of Congress is worried about deteri-
orating rail service and the high cost to consumers."
The PSC will continue hearing testimony and receiving ev-
idence from attorneys on the proposed pulverized coal plant on
Thursday, January 18, at 10:30 a.m. in Tallahassee at the Betty
Easley Conference Center. The PSC will make their final deci-
sion on the TEC coal plant, based on need and cost-effective-
ness, on February 13, at 10:30 a.m.
At a later date, the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) will have a-pubhc hearing to address the enm i-
ronmental and health concern' of TEC'-s proposed pul enzed
coal plant,-whieh- were also presented ritthe-PSC'hearirig.
Richard Furman, speci.- ist in new coal technologies, urged
the PSC to require use of ttie proven, reliable type of coal tech-
nology called Integrated gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC)
that is 50-90 percent les,. polluting than TEC's proposed pulver-
ized coal plant. //
With IGCC, mercury and C02 pollution is greatly reduced
and this improved tedhnology has the capability to capture car-
bon dioxide, which/would reduce the huge future expense of in-
evitable carbon p nalties, and it % would lessen the threat of glob-
al warming. /
TEC, however, claims that IGCC technology has not been
proven, even though the PSC has already approved new coal
gasificatifn plants to be built in both Orlando and Tampa.and
other IGCC plants are being built by utilities across the U.S.
Tampa Electric officials are so pleased with their ten-year-old
IGS.C plant that they are in the process of building a new 650-
,Iaegawatt IGCC plant.
Although TEC spokespersons say their proposed plant
would meet current EPA emissions standards; scientists, physi-
cians and medical groups in Florida and nationwide disagree,
stating that statistics show current EPA rules on coal plant
emissions are not stringent enough to protect human health or
the environment and many serious illnesses each year are di-
rectly attributable to coal plant pollution.

TEC's proposed plant would emit millions of tons of C02
per year, thousands of tons of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide
and other toxic emissions per year, and a constant rain of mer-
cury that would have the potential of harming the health of peo-
ple within a wide radius.
"As the world heats up, the coal industry is racing to build
more than 150 new power plants before Congress decided to
crack down on global warming," said Jeff Goodell, author of
Big Coal. Recent reports say 2006 was the warmest year on
Clearly, Madison citizens don't want their health to be af-
fected by a coal plant. In 2005, over 1,000 residents quickly
signed petitions opposing the siting of this coal plant in Madi-
son County with overwhelming support from the Madison
County Commission and local physicians. The Taylor County
Board of County Commissioners, however, quickly accepted
TEC's offer prior to any public hearings and before health and
environmental impacts had been studied.
The anti-coal movement is bringing Christians to the fore-
front nationwide who are mounting opposition to new coal
plants on local, state and national levels. On October 19, 2006,
a group of Christians gathered in front of the governor's man-
sion in Texas for prayer against 17 new coal-fired power plants
proposed for their state. Texas mayors are taking a tough stand
against the building of coal plants in their cities.
Scientists, physicians and coal plant opponents say gov-
ernment officials need to focus more on promoting conserva-
tion, demand side energy reductions and the use of alternative
energy to reduce need for coal plants. TEC representatives
have stated that conservation efforts will not be able to keep up
with energy demands. However, one. TEC partner, the City of
Tallahassee, hired an unbiased firm to assess'their energy needs
and offer possible alternatives to a coal plant. They found, by
implementing demand-side-reduction policies, clean alterna-
tives and other options, the City of Tallahassee could obtain all
the energy needed without going with the Taylor Energy Cen-
ter. For now, they remain a partner and will decide later if they
will stay in the TEC group.
Undeniably, utilities are profit-driven. They want to sell
more power to make more money -using pulverized coal.
However, the threat of global warming, carbon penalties and
the many negative health effects of coal plants are forcing util-
ities to look to cleaner options like IGCC, and many companies
in Florida and the U.S. are turning to cleaner alternatives, de-
mand side reduction and IGCC technology.

Plan Your Spending To Reduce Debt
January is a good month to get reorganized and start some
goals for the future. Money is often a priority for the New Year,
and after the holiday spending sprees, it may be time to tighten
up on your spending. If you need to pay off a few bills and don't
think you have enough money to see you through the month, take
a good look at your spending habits and make a few changes.
Extension Specialists in family finance suggest you trim
flexible expenses and redirect small amounts of money toward
.bill payments. What are flexible expenses? They are the ones
that vary each month; groceries, gas, telephone, even the light
bills qualify for flexible expenses. Reducing small amount in all
of your expense categories can free up money to go toward bills
that need to be paid.
Take a good look at your habits and where you are spending
money. If you keep a record of all of your spending for a few
weeks, you may be surprised how the dollars add up on purchas-
es you don't even think about. Just tuck a piece of paper in your
pocket and record the amount you spend every time you take out
your wallet. This one exercise may be an eye opener for you.
You may be shocked at how much money you spend without
A big expense for many people is eating out every day. Of-
ten it is lunch at a fast food establishment and snacks at a conve-
nience stores that drain your wallet. Taking your lunch and
snacks to work for a couple of months will sae money that can
be used for bills.
Although it is tempting to stop at the drive through window
on your way home from work, eliminate convenience food meals.
Make meals from scratch when you have time and use the
planned-overs throughout the week. You can redirect significant
dollars from reducing the amount of money youspend on food
away from home.
Another easy way to find money for debt payments is to col-
lect all of your loose change at the end of each day. You'll be sur-
prised at how quickly money adds up in a jar. The key is to use
this' "found money" for a bill payments and not put it in your
pocket to aimlessly spend.
January is also a great time to clean out closets. All that stuff
you never use or wear can. be sold for cash, so organize a yard or
garage sale. Use the extra money to power pay those holiday
bills that are now arriving in the mail. Paying extra' money on
credit cards now will reduce interest payments in the future.

Nationwide, the average
price for a gallon of gasoline
is $2.24 per gallon.
Here's a look at where
money goes when one pays
for gas, according to How-
*Crude oil The biggest
portion of the cost of gas as
of February 2006, that's about
59 percent goes to the crude-
oil suppliers. This is deter-
mined by the world's oil-ex-
porting nations, particularly
the Organization of the Petro-
leum Exporting Countries
(OPEC),. which you will learn
more about in the next section.
The amount of crude oil these
countries produce determines
the price of a barrel of oil.
Crude-oil prices averaged
around $37 per barrel (1 barrel
= 42 gallons or 159.6 L)'in
2004 (Source: U.S. DOE).
And, after Hurricane Katrina,
some prices were almost dou-
ble that. In July 2006, crude-
oil prices averaged around $72
per barrel (1 barrel = 45 gal-
Haeyo ee ure dw
lons or 159.6 L).
Sometimes, gas prices go
up even though there is plenty
of crude oil on the market. It
depends on what kind of oil it
is. Oil can be classified as
heavy or light, and as sweet or
sour (no one actually tastes the
oil, that's just what they call
it). Light, sweet crude is easier
and cheaper to refine, but sup-
plies have been running low.
There's plenty of heavy, sour
crude available in the world,
but refineries, particularly
those in the U.S., have to un-
dergo costly retooling to han-
Refining costs The re-
fining of crude oil makes up
about 10 percent of the price
of gasoline. To learn more
about oil refining, read How
Oil Refining Works.
Distribution and mar-
keting Crude oil is transport-
ed to refineries, and gasoline
is shipped from the refineries
to distribution points and then
to gas stations. The price of
transportation is passed along
to the consumer. Marketing
the brand of the oil company
is also added into the cost of
the gasoline you buy. Togeth-
er, these two factors account
for about 11 percent of the
price of gasoline.

The Cowgirls' soccer
team won their final game
of this year's regular season
Friday night in an exciting
home game against Godby.
Madison came out
strong in the first half and
scored in the 15th, 22nd,
and 38th minutes. Godby
was unable to achieve more
than a few shots, and the
game went to the half with
the score 3-0. During the
halftime, the Cowgirls took
time to honor their four
graduating seniors .this
year: Ingrid Bellera, Paige
Wetmore, Chantell Bell,
and Katie Burke.
After the half, the
Cougars tried to mount an
attack, but were still unsuc-
cessful, though they did
manage to keep Madison
from scoring any more
goals. The final score was
3-0 in the Cowgirls' favor.
The scorers for the
game were: Unique Gnann,
with two goals; Allyce
Rutherford, with one unas-
sisted goal and an assist;
and Katie Burnett with one
Collis and Dara Howell
held Godby scoreless for
the game. Collis had four,
saves and Howell had one
Aucilla Middle School Girls
Are On A Winning Streak
By Gabe Thompson
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Aucilla Christian
Academy Middle School Girls'
basketball team defeated
Maclay in Tallahassee by the
score of 31-20 on JanuarNy 11th.
Aucilla Christian main-
tained a comfortable lead
throughout the game. This
game marks the second time
this season Aucilla Christian
has had two players in double
figures for scoring.
They didn't have two girls
score ten or more points in the
same game all last season.
Sarah Sorenson had a
shooting percentage of 58 per-
cent for the game, which is ex-
ceptional for the high school
level. Not all bf Sorensen's
shots were taken from close
range as she hit some from out-
side as well.
Sorensen scored 14 points;
Taryn Copeland had 11 points;
Kaitlin Jackson had four points
and seveniiebounds; and Nick-
ie Hamrick had three steals to
lead Aucilla Christian past
Their record now stands at
7-2, and they are on a five
game winning streak. There
was supposed to have been a
game last Friday against Stein-
hatchee, but it was postponed
due to sickness of their team.
The game has been resched-
uled for January 25 at 3:30 in

The Madison County Cow-
boys played in the second annu-
al Lowndes Christian Classic
Tournament from December
20th until December 22nd.
Coach Eddie Richie said he
was proud of his guys. "We
played well for the first two
games," stated Richie.
The Cowboys struggled a
little in the first game against a
young and fast Lanier County.
Madison was able to defeat
Lanier 51-47, behind the scor-
ing of Tony Brown and DeAn-
gelo Tucker. Brown had 18
points with eight rebounds, and
Tucker scored 13 points and had
The Cowboys continued to
struggle when they played the
second game against 5A Lown-
des. The team was down by as
many as 21 points, but they bat-
tled back to within three points.
Lowndes held onto their lead
and defeated the Cowboys 60-
The two leading scorers
were James Mobley with 13
points, and Jordan Johnson with
Cowgirls' Soccer Team
Is Dealt A Disappointing
Loss Against Wakulla
'By Dopn Smith,
'MCHS Soccer Coach
Madison had faced the
War Eagles a month ago at
home and lost 3-2, but they
were hoping for a slightly
better outcome in the away
leg of the series.
The Cowgirls fought
hard through the first half,
mai-ng several close misses
on the Wakulla goal and
keeping the War Eagles shots
out as well.
The game went to the
half with the score still
drawn at 0-0. Wakulla man-
aged to slip one into the goal
in the fifth minute of the sec-
Madison fought back de-
terminedly, forcing the War
Eagles' keeper to make sev-
eral saves, but they were un-
able to equalize the score.
Finally, Wakulla scored
again in the 30th minute, and
despite the fact that the Cow-
girls really poured on the
heat after that, the game end-
ed with the War Eagles win-
ning 2-0. Goalie Ashley Col-
lis had six saves in the game.
This makes the Cowgirls
6-14-1 for the season and 2-
4 in the district. Next week
begins the post-season, and
the Cowgirls will be at
Hamilton County High at
5:00 on Tuesday to face

Bronson Announces Chanes To Pest Control Rules That Enhance Cosumer Protection
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson is
announcing that a set of new
rules has gone into effect that
provide improved protection
for consumers who contract
with pest control companies for
All contracts issued by pest
control companies for termite
control must now clearly tell
consumers if the contracts cov-
er subterranean termites, dry-
wood termites, or both. If they
don't cover Formosan termites,
a particularly aggressive form
of subterranean termite, the
company has to clearly state
'The average homeowner
may not understand that there
are differences in the types of
termites that can invade their
homes as well as differences in
the kinds of protections that ad-
dress each insect," Bronson
said. "We have found that
many people do not realize they
are not protected against one or
the other until their home is
damaged and it is too late."
Another important change
that goes into effect immediate-
ly is that companies that per-
form only "spot" treatments
post that information on treat-
ment stickers in the structure.
Existing homes may be treated
prior to being sold, especially
when pre-sale inspections show
some termite activity. Sellers
may opt for a less expensive
spot treatment rather than a full
treatment. Until now the treat-
ment sticker did not have to
specify that it was a "spot"
'This is especially impor-
tant for home buyers," Bronson
said. "Buyers of existing homes
may be told that a house has
been treated before they buy it,
but not informed the treatment
was only to a limited part of the
building. Now they will know
if the treatment was full or par-
Other changes in the con-
tract rule require that pest con-
trol companies retreat infesta-
tions covered by a contract
within ninety days (180 days
for multiunit structures). Previ-
ously there was no time limit
on when the service had to be
Charles H. Bronson is the
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner for
the State of Florida. (Pic-
provided. Companies are now
also prohibited from denying
re-treatment or repairs if they
were aware of a construction
defect or other condition con-
ducive to termite infestation,
such as a water leak, and did
not inform the property owner
and allow them to repair it.
Nearly all contracts have
limitations and exclusions un-
,der which treatment or repair
does not have to be done, for
example if there is a plumbing
leak. Prior to this rule change,
a company could be aware of a
defect, collect renewals for sev-
eral years, and then deny re-
treatment or repairs when they
became necessary. Pest control
companies have a year to
change their contracts to reflect
"The practices these rules
require are already common to
all good pest control compa-
nies, but we need these rules to
prevent a few from taking ad-
vantage of contract loopholes
and not protecting consumers
from termite damage," Bron-
Bronson says that home-
owners need -to take steps to
protect their homes from these
damaging pests while at the
same time protecting their
rights in pest control contracts.
Consumers can get more
information on termite protec-
tion, the difference between
subterranean or drywood ter-
mites, or file a complaint
against a pest control company,
by calling 1-800-HELPFLA

Florida Arbor Day Emphasizes The Importance Of Native Trees
Native Trees Maintain The Ecological Balance And Beauty Of The Sunshine State
In recognition of Florida's
Arbor Day, the Department of
(DEP) is encouraging Floridi-
ans to protect the State's nat-
ural woodlands, hardwood
hammocks and mangrove
forests by planting native trees
and preventing the spread of
invasive plants. In Florida,
late % inter is an ideal time for
planting native trees, includ-
ing the sabal palm, Florida's

Julius Sterling Morton, first
took place in 1872 in Nebras-
ka. Throughout his career,
Morton worked to improve
throughout the United States,
serving as President Grover
Cleveland's Secretary of Agri-
In 1970, President
Richard Nixon proclaimed the
last Friday in April as Nation-
al Arbor Day. Since then,
every state in the nation and
many countries around the
world have designated their-
bwn Arbor Da). Florida cele-
brates the third Friday in Janu-
ary as Arbor Day.
Florida is home to a num-
ber of invasive tress including,
the Australian pine, chinaber-
ry and Brazilian pepper. Inva-
sive, non-native plants inhabit
almost 15 percent of Florida's
public conservation lands and
waterways, decreasing native
biodiversity and affecting an
eco-tourism economy valued
at more than $7.8 billion .an-
nually. Throughout the past
four years, Governor Jeb Bush
has tasked a multi-agency,
teaun with researching, pre-'
venting and eradicating bio-
logical invasions in Florida.

The History Of Arbor Day
On January 4. 1872. J
Sterling Morton first proposed
a tree-planting holiday to be
called "Arbor Day" at a meet-

Board of Agriculture. The date
was set for April 10. 1872. It
was estimated that more than
one million trees were planted
