Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison City Com-
mission voted to offer Harold
J. Emrich a contract to become
the town's next City Manager.
The decision came after
three separate ballots. Rick
Davis and Chuck Hitchcock
both had three votes Qn one of
the ballots and Emrich had"
four. On the third ballot, Em-
rich was chosen and then the
Commissioners voted unani-
mously to offer him the posi-
tion.

ident of Tri-State Testing Lab.

tion degree from the Universi-


ty of Oklahoma.

served as a County Commis-
sioner during Emrich's tenure
as Jackson County Adminis-
trator, said that he has a lot of
respect for Emrich and his
abilities.
"He is a highly talented,,
well-respected person,"
Pittman said. "I think that he
will do a good job as Madison


city manager. He's a good,
clean guy. I personally like
him. No one is perfect, but on
a scale from 0-10, I'd give him
a good '8.'"

SCHOOL BOARD LOOKING AT ADOPTING


POLICY FOR CELL PHONE USE BY BUS DRIVERS
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison County School Board is joining in with the American School Bus Council and
urging bus drivers, "Put down your cell phones."
Terri Garrett, the School Board's personnel director who helps develop School Board Policy,
and Ivan Johnson, Director of Transportation, are working on a plan to ban the use of cell phones
while the buses are moving.
Garrett said that she and Johnson will sit down and use the state's guidelines to develop a pol-
icy for the school bus drivers.
School Superintendent Lou Miller said, "State policy says that :cell phones cannot be used
during the day, but can be carried by people who work for the school district. When drivers are
on the bus, it's after school."
Miller noted that bus drivers are not supposed to be on the cell phones while the school bus
is moving.
"School buses in Madison County are already equipped with radios in case of an emergency,"
Johnson noted.'
The American School Bus Council plans to issue guidelines calling for a ban on drivers using cell
phones when the bus is moving or when students are getting on or off.
The group's co-director, Pete Japikse, who also is the head of school transportation in Ohio, said
the council will urge bus companies and school districts to enact the ban.
He said the research is clear that cell phones cause drivers to lose focus. "We don't want those dis-
tractions to be part of the school bus driver's environment," he said.
Japikse said the group also will urge state lawmakers to take action. There are at least a dozen

Lee Town Council Looking


At Raising Water Rates
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Lee Town Council heard the first reading on a possible raise in water rates on Tuesday
evening, February 6.
The base rate will drop from $18 for the first 3,000 gallons of water used, down to $16; how-
ever, the water use rate after the base rate will increase from $1.50 to $1.75 per 1,000 gallons used.
It has been eight years since the town council raised the water rates. They had two water rate
surveys done and learned that they would need the minimal increase to remain financially solvent.
The next reading will be held at the council's meeting on Tuesday, March 6.
In other business, the Town of Lee hired the engineering firm of Joseph Mittauer & Associ-
ates, of Jacksonville.
"We're excited about the new partnership," Town Manager Cheryl Archambault said of the
agreement with Mittauer.

Small Scale Amendment


By Jacob Bembry

The Madison County
Planning and Zoning Board
approved a small-scale
amendment for a lot in Willow
Bend Subdivision.
According to the Coun-
ty's Planning Director, Jeanne

to allow building in the area.
The public hearing on the
issue will be held at the Madi-
son County Commission

RE. February 5-9 Declared Teen Dating Violence Week


Amazing
No matter how many times I am amazed at the power of
God, I am still overwhelmed by His wonderworking power.
Last Sunday, I watched as seven people stood at the front of
Midway Church of God and announced their intentions to join
the church and to be baptized. That afternoon, I went to Dowl-
ing Park Church of God for the baptismal service. There was one
more who had announced the same intention, bringing the total
number of baptisms to eight.
The power of the Holy Spirit began working in one young
lady's heart during the service and she went up and was bap-
tized. Then, another boy went up to accept Christ as his Savior
and to be baptized.
The service was dismissed and I left. The next day, I found
out that four more people had gone forward to be baptized.
Isn't the power of God amazing?
Lately, I have seen God's work at my life, through a physi-
cal healing. Last week, I could barely move my right foot be-
cause of heel spurs in it. Now, I can move freely, thanks to the
power of God and to the friends who prayed for my healing.
I have seen the power of God at work in the lives of others.
I have seen one friend who organized a Valentine's drive for sol-
diers in Iraq and who set up an email address (madisoncountv-
cares@vahoo.com) for people who wish to post their prayer re-
quests for the soldiers, their families and others.
I received one call from a woman named Miracle, whom we
had prayed for at church on New Year's Eve. She had gone in for
surgery and the doctors had found no cancer.
One friend emailed me and told me that her father had gone
in to be checked for cancer. No cancer was found!
God is amazing. He can do things that we never imagined
possible. He can change hearts. He can change minds. He can
heal our bodies.
Praise God for the wonderful things He does.

2002, the City Commission on a split vote fired him.
Emrich told this reporter that he was not given a reason for
his termination from the City of Marianna.
Frank Bondurant, attorney for the City of Marianna, said
that there had been no wrongdoing on Emrich's part when he
was terminated.
"City managers usually don't stay in their position for very
long," Bondurantfraid. -Hi61ddEid ch is an upstanding man."
FromdiO0 until the present,Emrich has, been in business

Emrich currently resides in Marianna.


High fives, to Ms. Ashley Bell, for a very well written arti-
cle. Unfortunately, Ms. Bell is correct, some young ladies are
abused by their so called, boyfriends. However this is the way I
handled my Daughters boyfriends.
While waiting for my daughters to get ready for their date,
I met with the young man at the kitchen table. "One time was al-
ways enough" I told them up front, "I don't like you, and more
than likely, I will never like you". Before you take my Daughter
out of my house, there are certain rules,you must follow. These
rules will always be in effect, and must always be followed ex-
actly as written. There is one, and only one exception, you're in
a hospital somewhere, dying.
We then went over the following rules. I had the young man
read to me out loud, all the rules of my house. I then had him
write his full name, address, phone number, next of kin to be no-
tified in case of emergency, then and only then was he given the
privilege of dating my baby.

Rule One:
If you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be de-
livering a package, because you will not pick anything else up.

Rule Two:
You do not touch my daughter, in front of me. You may
glance at her, but never at anything below her neck. If you can-
not keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will
remove them.

Rule Three:
I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your
age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be
falling off the hips. Please, don't take this as an insult, but you
and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair
and open minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise:
You come to the door with your underwear showing, and your
pants ten sizes too big, I will not object. However, to ensure that
your clothes do not come off, during the course of your date
with my daughter. I will take my electric nail gun and fasten
your trousers securely in place to your waist.

Rule Four:
I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without
utilizing a "barrier method" of some kind can kill you. Let me
elaborate, when it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill
you.

Rule Five:
When you bring my baby- home, there Will never be a hair
out of place, a scratch anywhere on her bod\. or tear in any of
her cloths..You, Will also look the same.


Rule Six:
I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many oppor-
tunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is
okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with
my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she
is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make you cry.

Rule Seven:
As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter
to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fid-
get. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be
dating my daughter. Instead of just standing there, why don't
you do something useful, like changing the oil in my car?

Rule Eight:
The following places are not appropriate for a date with my
daughter: Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer
than a wooden stool. Places where there are no parents, police-
men, or nuns within eyesight. Places where there is darkness.
Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to induce
my daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or any-
thing other than overalls, a sweater, and a goose down parka.-
zipped up to her throat. Movies with a strong romantic or sex-
ual theme are to be avoided; movies which features chain saws,
are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are even bet-
ter.

Rule Nine:
Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a potbellied, balding,
middle-aged, dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my
daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless God of your universe.
If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one
chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the
truth: I have a shotgun, a shovel, and eighty acres behind the
house. Do not, trifle with me.

Rule Ten:
Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mis-
take the sound of your car in the driveway, for a chopper com-
ing in over a rice paddy, near Dul Sac. When my Agent Orange
starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to
clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home. As
soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit your car with
both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password, an-
nounce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home
safely and early, then return to your car there is no need for you
to come inside. The camouflaged face at the window is mine.
Dads, take care of your little girls. I do.nt ne, d some Wash-
ington politician to tell me how to take care of Daddy's girl's
,r'neither should you.

states with laws or regulations prohibiting school bus drivers from
talking on the phone.
The council includes public and private transportation,
providers, school bus manufacturers and state officials responsi-
ble for pupil transportation.
The council's recommendation follows one from the Nation-
al Transportation Safety Board, which said all bus drivers should
be banned from using cell phones while driving.
The federal panel made that recommendation after blaming a
driver's conversation on a cell phone for a 2004 crash in Alexan-
dria, Va. that injured 11 students.
About 25 million students in the United States ride the school
bus each day, according to the American School Bus Council.
In 2005, 134 people were killed in accidents involving school
buses, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Admin-
istration.
Ten were drivers or passengers on the bus, while 30 were
pedestrians. The majority of those killed were in other vehicles.


Dr. Scallion retired as Senior Advisor for Air and Space Is-
sues for Headquarters Air Force, and has served as military his-
tory professor at U.S Army War College, and as Air Force His-
torian.
Excerpts from 'What .Do We Owe Our Servicemen?'
(Feb 8, 2007) response to 'Washington Post' blogger William
Arkin

S-We owe them consistency, steadfastness, and dedication:
the same they exhibit every day. If after Pearl Harbor, the U.S.
had experienced the same disunity and smug self-criticism that
all too many engage in today, we would have quickly folded.
-We owe them honesty elected representatives who use
every challenge as an opportunity and excuse for blatant par-
tisan politics abuse the trust and break faith with the Americans
who elected them... as well with deployed members of our mil-
itary forces who pay the ultimate price for such gamesmanship.
-We owe them fact-based realism...that...we at least look at
the world with the same objective, realistic focus, that we see


what is there, not what we wish were there.
-Most of all, we need a healthy dose of moral courage, root-
ed in an unapologetic recognition that our cause is just, that
we must prevail, that we cannot sink into either the complacen-
cy of "it can't happen here"...or the pessimism that we cannot
eventually triumph over the threats we face..
Dr. Scallion quotes Churchill after WWII: ..."the malice of
the wicked was reinforced by the weakness of the virtuous,"
particularly a disastrous self-delusional desire "to keep peace at
any price." Because vain hopes and desires replaced reality, dic-
tators armed, good nations dithered, and Europe plunged into
cataclysm. "Facts," he concluded, "are better than dreams."

A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Atrophy
During my lengthy hospital stay in the fall, I collected a two-
inch sheaf of records from lab reports, nurses, physicians, and oth-
er sources. Because they were stapled together at the top, I'could
not read the names on the separate sheets. I just took it for granted
that they all referred to me.
One report was particularly troubling to my daughter and my
sister. It didn't bother me much, and one of my doctors stamped
"Initial Report Not Approved" on it in big letters. What was the
problem? The report stated that I had a brain atrophy.
For those who might not know, an atrophy is a condition that
results from inability to function. A muscle atrophies if it is not
used; it becomes weak and non-functional.
The doctor looked at the report, talked with me a little bit, then
stamped his message on the sheet. My relatives, however, were dis-
turbed for another reason. Unbeknownst to me, a very similar report
had been among my late ex-husband's records shortly before he
died of cancer. My daughter was especially upset about my having
a similar report.
Finally she could stand it no longer. She pulled out the staples
in the hunk of papers and extracted that one. When she saw anoth-
er person's name and age at the top of the sheet, she began to jump
up and down in excitement. Unfortunately, she happened to be on
an elevator at the time. She almost unhinged the thing with her an-
tics.
Later, she told me what she had discovered. I commiserated
with her about the misunderstanding, but still did not worry about
the report especially since it was not mine.
Since then, whenever I forget a name or the location of the tow-
els or what I was talking about a minute ago, my relatives just say,
"Brain atrophy." We laugh about it, but I know it is not a humorous
condition.
I know my memory will improve. It has done so practically
since the day of my release. Still, I have moments that I cannot call
a student by name or remember a familiar phone number. Those oc-
casions bother me, but I cannot do anything about them, so worry-
ing is out of the question.
So when you greet me at the grocery store, forgive me if I don't
call you by name. Just chalk it up to brain atrophy and know I'll do
better next time.


Take Charge Of Your Diabetes
Diabetes is a leading chronic disease in America. Accord-
ing to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in the last
15 years the number of people in the U.S. diagnosed with dia-
betes has more than doubled. It is estimated that more than 20.8
million Americans have diabetes, 6.2 million do not know they
have the disease.
People with diabetes have a shortage of insulin or a de-
creased ability to use insulin, a hormone that allows sugar (in the
form of glucose) to enter cells and be used for energy. When di-
abetes is not controlled, glucose levels remains in the blood and
over time damage vital organs. Diseases associated with uncon-
trolled diabetes are heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney fail-
ure, and lower-extremity amputations.
Type 2 diabetes is linked to obesity and physical inactivity,
accounting for about 90% of diabetes cases and most often ap-
pears in people older than 40. It is estimated that 41 million U.S.
adults aged 40 74 years have prediabetes, a condition where
blood sugar levels are elevated but no thigh enough to be classi-
fled as diabetes.
Madison County Extension is now offering an educational
program to help adults with type 2 diabetes control their blood
sugar to feel better and reduce risk of health complications. The
program will include nine classes taught by a team of qualified
educators and health professionals, and a personal consultation
with a registered dietitian. Health assessments (height, weight,
and blood pressure measurements) are included. Classes will
begin Monday, March 19th at 6:00 p.m.
We are now recruiting participants for this program. If you
have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, are at least 21 years
old, and are interested in being a part of this program, please call
the Extension office at 973-4138 by March 1st. The $75 pro-
gram fee includes the educational classes, nutrition consultation,
program materials and healthy assessment.

Chitlins, (ugh) Oysters,

Shrimp And Polecat
My father-in-law, Will Driggers, always arose very early.
About 3 a.m. he started a fire in the fireplace and sat smoking his
pipe and apparently was deep in thought as he stared into the
fire. Then about five he started a fire in the kitchen range and
called his wife, "Annie, its time to get up," then his daughter,
"Mary, go help your mama," and after that his son, "Richard, go
milk the cows." Then he would go to the barn and feed the mule.
Following a full breakfast of grits, bacon or ham, eggs, bis-
cuits and good old Charmers coffee, the family's day began.
This particular day was for hog killing since Thanksgiving was
near and the weather was cold enough. The men built a fire un-
der a huge iron wash pot and hung the hog by his hind legs from
a scaffold. I always hid and covered my ears tightly trying not to
hear the gunshot. Then the hog was stabbed to allow free bleed-
ing before being scalded and scraped. The skin was the source
of cracklin's and lard so a thorough scraping was necessary. The
animal was cut open and the innards removed. The heart, lungs
and intestines were kept and cleaned. I never helped clean the in-
testines but watched my sister-in-law, who was visiting, and she
was an expert. The only thing she couldn't ricfthem of was the
smell! The only way to do that was by frying them after they
were boiled. But I did help scrape pig's feet. The brain was also
saved and scrambled with eggs. The head was used for hog head
'souse', the hams, shoulders and sides were the only parts left
whole. They, along with the sausage which consisted of any-
thing left (which was ground and stuffed into the clean in-
testines) was hung in the smokehouse over a hickory fire to be
cured. The pig's feet were canned, usually pickled. The only
thing not kept and used was the squeal! That evening supper
usually consisted of a heart, lung, potatoes and onion stew, col-
lard greens, cornbread, milk and coffee. Hardly ever was a ham
kept for the family they were sold in order to buy flour, coffee,
sometimes sugar for Christmas baking, thread, tobacco twine,
shoes and Vicks salve. Mary said "if one's throat was cut, mama
would run for her jar of Vicks!"
Oysters! They are second only to chitlin's on my 'dislike
very much' list. The Driggers men, when their yen for oysters
grew too strong, would make a trip to Deadman's Bay and bring
back croker bags full of them. A long piece of tin, was placed
over a fire and the oysters lined up on it. When an oyster was hot
enough, the shell would pop open. The family stood around and
ate them with soda crackers and ketchup and I kept my distance!
I tried one once and felt my mouth had sand in it!
Shrimp was number three on the list. On my honeymoon,
Dice took me to Jacksonville Beach which was wonderful. One
day, though, we went to a drive in where he ordered a quart of
boiled shrimp which was brought out in a shoe box! I could not
stand the smell of them so opened my door and turned my back
on him. He just laughed and ate them all! A few years later,
when his sister Adele and her husband visited us in Jacksonville,
we had jumbo shrimp for dinner we also had a great little maid
who cooked them to perfection. They smelled so good that I
tried one but found it impossible to chew it up and swallow it -
of course they laughed at me!
Now 'polecat' is a different breed it is sweet and good. At
cane grinding time, after wagon loads of cane have been brought
to the cane mill, topped and shucked, a mule'is hitched to the
pole and goes around in a circle while the cane, stalk by stalk, is
fed into the mill. The juice then goes into an iron cauldron un-
der which a fire is burning. This fire is kept regulated after the
juice begins boiling so that it never boils over nor drops to sim-
mering. After the juice boils for a while, it begins to foam on the
rim of the cauldron. That is when all the kids, who already have
a piece of cane peel ready, use the peel like a spoon to dip the
'polecat' from the rim. It is as delicious as candy which they sel-
dom had a chance to taste. Dice's brother Richard figured out
how to set his farm tractor so it would take the place of the mule,
saving that poor beast many monotonous hours of hard work at
syrup making time.
I hope you have enjoyed my change of pace this week and
trip down memory lane.

Attorney General Bill McCollum today announced the arrest
of a Duval County man on multiple charges of possession of child
pornography and promoting the sexual performance of a child.
Investigators discovered Christopher Piasecki's distribution
and promotion of pornographic videos of children during an un-
dercover online investigation.
"Child pornography is a collection of crime scene photos
documenting the abuse of our youngest and most vulnerable citi-
zens," said McCollum. "These photographs victimize their sub-
jects again and again each time they are traded or viewed. We are
working diligently to stop these sick individuals from operating in
our state."
Piasecki, 20, placed pornographic videos on the internet,
where they were discovered by a CyberCrime investigator who
was able to trace the images back to Piasecki. A search warrant
was then executed at Piasecki's Jacksonville residence and his
computer was seized, along with more than 25 videos of child'
pornography. Piasecki was arrested by officers with the Attorney
General's Child Predator CyberCrime Unit and authorities with
Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Law enforcement officers executing the search warrant veri-
fied that Piasecki's computer contained multiple videos of child
pornography, and he admitted that he knowingly possessed the
pornography found on his computer. Many of the images were of
babies and were explicit and graphic in nature. The computer and
other equipment removed from the residence will undergo further
forensic analysis to possibly locate additional pornographic im-
ages or movies of children. Piasekci, of Illinois, is a student at a
local university.


McCollum noted that the images found on Piasecki's com-
puter are the type of images targeted by a new bill before the
Florida Legislature. The legislation, which received unanimous
support from the Florida House Committee on Homeland Securi-
ty and Public Safety, increases penalties for possession of images
like those discovered at Piasecki's residence, including images of
young children or babies and images portraying cruelty or
bondage with a child.
Piasecki is currently being held at the Duval County Jail. He
is charged with one count of promoting the sexual performance of
a child, a second-degree felony, and two counts of possession of
child pornography, a third-degree felony. If convicted on all
charges he faces up to 25 years in prison.
Today over 77 million American children regularly use the
Internet and sadly, statistics on crimes related to child pornogra-
phy are on the rise. According to the Federal Internet Crimes
Against Children Task Force, Florida ranks third in the nation in
volume of child pornography.
Nationally, one in seven children between the ages of ten and
17 have been solicited online by a sexual predator. The Child
Predator CyberCrime Unit's mission is to protect children from
computer-facilitated sexual exploitation. The unit accomplishes
this by working cooperatively with statewide law enforcement
agencies and prosecutors to provide resources and expertise. Ad-
ditionally the Unit works to prevent the spread of these crimes
through education and community awareness. Piasecki's arrest is
the 35th made by officers within the unit since its inception in Oc-
tober 2005. The CyberCrime Unit is a member of the Internet
Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) of North Florida.

Merchants Behind President's Day
Merchants all over Madi-. -
son are being asked to con-
tribute to the Silent Auction for I
the benefit of Madison's "Pink

iOne respondent is Melanie
Hill, of the Madison Eye Cen-
ter.
Hill is married to a North
Florida native, but hails from
the State of Missouri. She has a
B.A. from the University of .'y s o. It .
Missouri, and has her optome-
try degree from Southern Col-
lege of Optometrists, in Mem- ..

Both she and her husband,
Cory, are Board Certified Op-
tometrists, and have practiced
their learned skills in Madison
since 2000. Melanie Hill
In honor of President's Day, she was asked: "Who's your favorite President?" So naturally,
being asked on the very day of Ronald Reagan's birthday, she just had to say "Ronald Reagan."
Her favorite remembrance of that President was: "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"
She is also enamored with our system of elections for presidents. "It is one of the great his-
torical revolutions of the world to have the people choose their leaders," she says.
The Madison County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, the "Pink Ladies," will receive all-the
profits from the "silent auction." Mrs. Hill is one of many Madison area professionals and mer-
chants who are offering their tax-deductible goods and services for a good cause for the silent auc-
tion part of the Presidents' Day celebration.

Kenneys To Appear

At Yogi Bear Opry

Hall Saturday Night


The Kenneys


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Kenneys will appear
in concert at Yogi Bear Opry
Hall on Saturday evening,
February 17, beginning at 7
p.m.
A musical experience
with The Kenney Family is
both God-glorifying and en-
tertaining. The entire family is
involved with the ministry
and the children's talents fea-
ture prominently in their per-
formances.
Their musical style in-
cludes contemporary Christ-
ian, praise and worship, tradi-
tional hymns, country Christ-
ian and original compositions.
They have performed at a
variety of venues including
churches, holiday events,


Christian and public camp-
grounds, county and state
fairs, and assorted community
functions.
The Kenneys seek to
spread the gospel through
music and to encourage fel-
low followers of Christ. They
verbally share their faith and
the gospel, but do not feel
their calling is .to teach doc-
trine.
They believe the Bible to
be the one and only true Word
of God, and that it is complete
and inerrant.
They believe the Lord Je-
sus Christ has directed them
to continue to share the
gospel with passion and ex-
citement, and that they are to
strive to reach outsiders (just
as Jesus did).


I U


Happenings At Madison First Baptist


By Nell Dobbs
God is Love! How mar-
velous! How great! We sing, "In
God's love there is enough room
for all of us to know His Love. In
God's love there is enough room
for all of us to show His Love. In
God's love we discover what real
love means, and it is more than we
could ever hope or dream. So, let's
share His love with those who've
given up, and pray that they will
trust in God's love." Amen!
We think of this month as the
time to show extra-special love.
"The old-time religion makes us
love everybody."
A beautiful red arrangement
was placed in church by Bill and
LaVeme Rutherford in honor of
their grandchildren, Reese, Daw-
son, Mitch and Rhett. What bless-
ings they all have been, and are in
church, and we ask continued
blessings upon them.
Preacher expressed his con-
cerns. Gena Plain explained how
fitting his words were and then
sang "Like You Loved Me."
Amen! Juanita Ragans played
so beautifully "Jesus Loves Me,"
on the piano for offertory. Chancel
Choir sang "Days of Elijah."
Then the message.. .Preacher
continued his message about Es-
ther, saying again there is no men-
tion of God in this book, but that it
is filled with His plans for His peo-
ple-the Jews. There was Haman,
who was jealous for not being rec-
ognized, for Mordecai, who was a
Jew, for his words to Esther, "Who
knows you have come to the king-
dom (she was Queen). For such a
time as this to save God's peo-
ple...The west side of our
sign.. ."Coincidence is when God
chooses to be anonymous..." Put
up by Cindy Brown. Thanks.
We give thanks for God's
great mercy as He has healed so


many, and as He so tenderly cares
for us. Keep in mind and prayer
the many in nursing homes and
hospitals and at home, as well as
those who care for them and love
them and all who visit.
Special thanks to Friendship
class, as fourteen of them went to
Dowling Park Monday, with Tere-
sa driving, to visit, sing, and take
pretty Valentine baskets. They saw
Yvonne Smith, Sarah Rowe, Wal-
teria Schnitker, and Audrey Walker
of our group. Then, they took bas-
kets to Mrs. Walker (now gone to
daughter Elaine's and family).
Marjell in Madison Hospital,
and Mildred Bruner at home, and
all others I don't know about.
Pray for Billy Washington's
mother, Marilyn, very ill; Sherrie
Miller' at Shands and very ill,
surgery on Monday; Jimmy
Colvin at Lake Park; Dorothy
Knitter and Sue Raines out of the
hospital and at home.
The Fellowship Hall of the
First Baptist Church was beauti-
fully transformed into a lovely
banquet hall by the M-Pact Youth
Co., and their sponsors. Each
table was set with a red tablecloth
and adorned with three floating
candles in the center. The silver-
ware was wrapped in a napkin
tied with lovely ribbon. Chocolate
mints were added as a special af-
ter dinner treat.
Members of the M-Pact
group were gracious hosts and
hostesses throughout the entire
meal. Orders were taken for the
drink; water, tea, or coffee. Julia
Childs, alias Debbie Bass and
youth sponsor, were in the kitchen
coordinating the efforts of the
youth with sponsors Doug and
Sherry Finney. A delicious green
salad was presented with one's
choice of dressing. The main
course of grilled chicken breasts


prepared by chef Steve Bass, an-
other youth sponsor, with baked
potato and a roll was then en-
joyed. Kendra Clark, wife of
youth minister Brad Clark, had
prepared several cheesecake pe-
tites for dessert. Each was so pret-
ty that it was a hard decision as to
which one to enjoy. Thanks guys,
and gals, for a very delicious
meal.
As delicious as the meal was,
the entertainment that followed
was exceptional. Geoff Hill and
Liane Wakefield, both involved
with the music program at the
high school, began the musical
entertainment with a piano and
saxophone duet. Kristen Finney,
one of the youth, followed that
with a solo entitled Broken.
Not to be outdone, Koda
Clark, another one of our youth,
followed that with a violin solo.
The only thing that would have
made Orlando Gallegos' solo of
"Grace Like Rain" any better
would have been for his great-
grandma, Margaret Morris, to be
able to hear him. Koda came back
and let us enjoy another violin
solo. Then we enjoyed a vocal
duet, "Tower of Your Love," by
Dannielle Bentley and Annette
Mclamma.
Not only did the girls do a
great job, the message in the song
is powerful. The audience enjoyed
another piano-sax duet by Mr. Hill


and Mrs. Wakefield. Koda re-
turned to entertain the group with
his mandolin. He played one tune
and then asked for help from the,
crowd. The crowd responded with
enthusiastic clapping, that set the
stage for the final act of the
evening. The crowd was thor-
oughly entertained by the special
appearance of Katrina Turner,
alias Misty Lamb, and The Bis-'
Kets, alias Kristen Finney, Tiffatny-
Smith, and Annette Mclamnma. ""
Katrina and the Bis-Kets d3i
a great job with getting the cro~y
into the fun. Youth and adults fS
sponded with clapping and do=
ing to show their enjoyment ofthe
number. At the conclusion of t.g:
entertainment, Brad Clark, yofflE
minister, asked the M-Pact gro
and sponsors to come forwardggi
.introduce themselves. The aflE-
ence responded in two ways. Jkk
McLeod, deacon, voiced apprecia-
tion from the group for the y.1ttz
M-Pact group,and their sponsors ;
Then, Lee Gordon, another
deacon, asked the audience to,
show appreciation by "tipping"'
the group. The group of aboud'85'
folks responded in an overwhelm-',
ing way. What a great way to end
a Sunday and to have such a won-'
derful experience to carry us,
through the week.
Thanks to Judy Phillips. May'.
the Lord fill our way every day
with love! Amen!

Mistakes Abound On Telephone-

Tax Refund Requests; IRS Offers
Tips for Getting A Speedy Refund
The Internal Revenue Service today offered taxpayers tips
for requesting the telephone excise tax refund, after early tax re-
turns show some people are making basic mistakes, others are
requesting excessive refunds and many are missing out on the
refunds, altogether.
"We encourage taxpayers to take a few minutes and review
the details of the telephone-tax refund," said IRS Commissioner
Mark W. Everson. "A little extra time will reduce the chance for
a mistake, avoid a refund delay and possibly add a few dollars
onto refund checks."
The government stopped collecting the long-distance excise
tax last August after several federal court decisions held that the
tax does not apply to long-distance service as it is billed today. I
Federal officials also authorized a one-time refund of the feder-
al excise tax collected on service billed during the previous 41
months, stretching from the beginning of March 2003 to the end
of July 2006. The tax continues to apply to local-only phone ser-
vice.
Early mistakes found on a sample of 2006 returns filed dur-
ing January include:
Filling out the Form 1040EZ-T, Request for Refund of
Federal Telephone Excise Tax, incorrectly by failing to show a:
refund amount on Line la. Designed exclusively for requesting
the telephone-tax refund, this simple form is for people who
don't need to file a regular income-tax return. Filing an incom-
plete form typically delays a refund and often leads to follow-up
correspondence with the IRS. More than 10 million low-income
people, many of them senior citizens, are expected to file this
form.
*, Failing to request the telephone tax refund on a regular
federal income-tax return in situations where the taxpayer ap-
pears to .qualify. More than one-third of early filers did not re-
quest the telephone tax refund. This includes filers on Forms
1040, 1040A, 1040EZ, 1040NR and. 1040NR-EZ. About 136
million individuals and couples are expected to file one of these
forms, and most will, likely, qualify for the telephone-tax re--
fund. Anyone who files one of.these forms cannot file Form
1040EZ-T.
Filing duplicate requests. Usually, this involves filing both
Form 1040EZ-T and a regular income-tax return. Anyone who
files a regular return cannot file Form 10-10EZ-T. Doing so will
delay any refund for months and result in a phone call or letter
from the IRS.
Requesting a refund that appears to be based on the entire
amount of the taxpayer's phone bills, rather than just the three-
percent tax on long-distance and bundled service.
Requesting a refund in the thousands of dollars, suggest-
ing that the taxpayer paid.more for, telephone service than they
received in income.
The IRS is investigating potential abuses among early filers
who requested large and apparently improper amounts for the
telephone tax refund. The IRS will take prompt action against
taxpayers who request improper refund amounts and the return
preparers who help them.
The IRS wants to make it as easy as possible for anyone
who paid the tax to get this special refund. If you paid the tax
and haven't filed yet, here are some tips to help you figure the
refund correctly and get it quickly:
File electronically. Electronic-filing software flags often
overlooked tax breaks and helps you figure them accurately and
report them properly. If you use a professional tax preparer, ask
that person to e-file your return.
E-file for free. If your income is $52,000 or less, use the
Free File link on this Web site to connect to a private-sector
company offering free e-file services.
Choose direct deposit. Whether you file electronically or
on paper, you can get your refund at least a week sooner by hav-
ing it deposited directly into your checking or savings account.
Consider using the standard-refund amount for the tele-
phone-tax refund. Though using the standard amount is option-
al, it is easy to figure and approximates the eligible amount for
most individual taxpayers. You only have to fill out one line on
your return, and you don't need to present proof to the IRS.The
standard amount, ranging from $30 to $60, is based on the num-
ber of exemptions you can claim on your return.
If you paid more than the standard amount, you may fig-
ure your refund using the actual amount of tax shown on your
phone bills and other records. Base your refund request on the
three-percent federal tax paid, not the total phone bill. Do not
count tax paid on local-only service. You must have the phone
bills or other records adequate to support the amount you are re-
questing. These documents should not be sent along with the re-
fund request but should be retained in case the IRS questions the
amount requested.
Do not file duplicate requests. If you file a regular income-
tax return, do not file Form 1040EZ-T. If you want to take ad-
vantage of the earned income tax credit for low and moderate in-
come workers, the child tax credit or other tax breaks, file a reg-
ular return and include your telephone-tax refund request on that
return.
Stay away from tax preparers who falsely claim that many,
if not most, phone customers can get hundreds of dollars or more
back under this program.
Use the Telephone Excise Tax Refund section on the front
page this Web site. Here, you can download forms, find answers
to frequently-asked questions and link to participating Free File

Two elementary school students at Madison County Central School do work in the Two Middle School students at Madison County Central School prepare to take the
preparation for the FCAT. (Photo submitted) FCAT. Testing begins on February 26. (Photo submitted)


Students, teachers and staff at Madison Middle School
have been vigorously preparing for the FCAT this year. Be-
sides all the hard work that has gone into these preparations,
Madison Middle has decided that an FCAT Pep-Rally would
also be in order to motivate students to do their very best. As-
sistant Principal, Davis Barclay, said, "We are hopeful that
students, teachers and parents are optimistic that we can im-
prove our test scores, and we hope that this pep-rally will mo-
tivate students to do well."
The FCAT pep-rally is scheduled for February 23rd at 1
p.m. for grades 3 5 and 2 p.m. for 6th 8th. According to
Guidance Counselors. parents are not only welcome to come


to the pep-rally but may consider this a personal invitation.
According to research, parent in\olvemenit is the key ingredi-
ent in a student's academic success, so parents, please come
to the pep-rally; you are needed.very much., Our success de-
pends on it.
The faculty and staff at Madison Middle School want to
especially thank Pizza Hut for giving all of the students a per-
sonal pan pizza if they do their very best on the test. Mr.
Steele said, "Business partnerships are an essential compo-
nent of any successful school district. Education is a commu-
nity event and not just something that our children receive ,
while ai school."*

Latma Christian Academy
StudentsTo Visit Alabama
During Black History Month


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
High school students from Latma Christian Academy
will take a field trip to Alabama during the month of Febru-
ary in celebration of Black History 'Month.
Students will visit the 16th Street Baptist Church, where
a bomb killed a number of people in the 1960s. Some of the
members of the church, who are still living, will speak to the
students after they watch a video of news events surrounding
the bombing.
The students will also visit the Birmingham Civil Rights
Institute and the jail cell, where Martin Luther King, Jr.
wrote his famous "Letter from a Birmingham Jail."
The group will go to Selma to visit the Voting Rights
Museum, the Slave Museum and the Edmund Pettis Bridge.
The trip will also include a tour of Montgomery.
"We want to make sure that our generation knows about
the history," said Emily Spencer, head of Latma Christian
Academy. "It's not just black history it's American history.
We hope that being there and experiencing some of the
things that happened will spark a fire within some of our stu-
dents so that we will never let anything like it happen again."

MONA0VIA
Health and Repair all in one juice, made from 19 fruits
thought to provide solutions for over-all health, energy and vitality.
The defining ingredient and foundation of the drink comes from
the acai berry, from Amazon palm trees. The acai berry is the size
of a giant blueberry and tastes like wild raspberry with a hint of
grape and chocolate.
To capture all of the rich nutrients these fruits possess,
they are pureed in their entirety flesh, skin and seed. Then, they
are combined synergistically to represent the best of nature's gifts
from the four corners of the world: South America, Asia,
The Mediterranean and North America.
Read the accompanying article for the fruits
contained in Mona Vie and their "claim to fame".

IT'S PURPLE MARTIN

TIME IN FLORIDA;

SCOUTS ARRIVE
r 4 t. .. ... i. J .^. S -5. t... .1 l-v f.'5- *t


I SnapshtOThWeI


The
Purple
Martin


Most bird watchers have a
favorite, which for many in
Florida is the mocking bird, the
state bird. But another species,
the purple martin, generates
enormous excitement and pas-
sion.
Because of its geographic
location, Florida leads the na-
tion in arrival of purple martins
from their wintering grounds in
South America. Reports. of
"scouts" are watched nationally
in an online database at pur-
plemartin.org maintained by
the Purple Martin Conservation
Association (PMCA), a non-
profit conservation organiza-
tion.
The earliest arriving martin
for two years running has been
reported from Fort Pierce, Flori-
da, on Dec. 11 in 2006 a very
early bird and on December
28 in 2005.
Floridians have a long tra-
dition of hosting purple martins,
which nest in colonies in multi-
compartment bird houses and in
gourds- hung from large racks
placed in open areas in yards
and parks statewide. This
largest member of the swallow
species is totally dependent on
humans for housing, and "land-
lords" anxiously await their re-
turn each year.
The-term "scout" is a mis-
nomer, according to the PMCA.
These earliest arrivals are sim-
ply experienced older martins
that have made the journey be-
fore and are eager to reclaim
their housing.
Adult male purple martins
are a glossy blue-black in color,
which they obtain at two years
of age. Females are a bit more
drab, with a gray breast. Most
older adults arrive in Florida af-
ter about Jan. 15 and well into
February, according to a PMCA
migration map.
One year old martins so
called "sub adults" begin ar-
riving 10 to 12 weeks after the
older birds in the Deep South.


These younger birds are more
easily attracted to new housing
locations.
As a species, purple mar-
tins are relatively common
throughout Florida, but have ex-
perienced a decline in the cen-
tral part of the state, based on
data from the North American
Breeding Bird survey. Reasons
are unclear, but probably in-
clude a lack of suitable housing.
While generations of
Americans have hosted purple
martins the custom adopted
from Native Americans who
hung out nesting gourds spe-
cific techniques to help a colony
thrive have emerged in the past
decade, based on research con-
ducted by the PMCA and by
landlords in the field.
Among innovations, are
deeper compartments to better
protect nestlings from rain and
from predators, and specially-
shaped entrance holes designed
fo admit martins while restrict-
ing European starlings, an inva-
sive, non-protected species.
The number one tip from
the PMCA for attracting mar-
tins: Purple martins are swal-
lows of the open sky and prefer
housing with at least several
open flyways. Place housing in
the most open space available,
but where the colony can be en-
joyed and monitored.
Much more information
about purple martins can be ob-
tained from the Purple Martin
Conservation Association -
which is focused on aiding mar-
tins and landlords including
a products catalog and informa-
tion booklet, with advice on at-
tracting and managing a colony,
and data sheets to participate in
Project Martin Watch, a nation-
al effort in which participants
monitor nests and mail informa-
tion to the PMCA at season's
end.
To obtain the booklet, con-
tact the PMCA at 814-833-7656

HUGE WHITETAIL TAKEN

IN WASHINGTON COUNTY
When Washington County farmer Philip Adkison went out
for an afternoon hunt January 19, little did he know he would
make news throughout the state.
Just before sundown, Adkison downed a typical 11-point
buck that measured 154-7/8 Boone and Crockett inches. It is the
largest deer measurers for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission's Florida Buck Registry have ,seen this sea-
son.
Adkison's deer ranks number 10 on the all-time list for high-
est-scoring deer ever taken in Florida. Adkison is convinced he
saw the 205-pound deer, crossing open fields but never closer than
500-600 yards, during both of the two previous hunting seasons.
He grew up hunting at his father's side, mostly running deer
dogs, arid hoped he could get his father in position for a shot at the
deer, but things didn't work out. His father died earlier this year.
On January 19, Adkison said, he climbed into a shooting
house overlooking a green patch on the family farm. He remem-
bers the wind had calmed and how quiet it was.
"Two does and a yearling came out and started feeding, but
they started getting 'antsy' and left. It was about the same time I
could hear something out in the woods, like a deer raking trees
with his antlers," he said.
Adkison' used a grunt tube, and before long, the buck stepped
out. His shot was on the mark. Word has spread far and wide
about his deer. He said people he doesn't know have been call-
ing, asking questions and wanting to hear the story. Several taxi-
dermists have called, offering to do the taxidermy job for free.

Introduce A Young Person

To Hunting In Florida
Courtesy of the National Wild Turkey Federation
When Florida's wild turkey season opens in March, young
and novice hunters will be able to go afield before they complete
a hunter education course thanks to a new mentor program. 'j
Anyone 16 years or older and born on or after June 1, 1975
can hunt under the supervision of a licensed hunter, 21 or older,,
without having to complete the state's hunter safety certifica-"
tion. So far, more than 6,000 mentor hunting licenses have beer4
sold since the program began last year. ;
Mentored hunting is a key component of the Families'
Afield program, a partnership of the National Wild
Turkey Federation, the National Shooting Sports Founda-
tion and the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance that works to re-'
move youth hunting barriers across the nation.
