Thanks To All For Making Fundraiser A Big Successful
Our Bike Run brought out 18 bikers. Some from Perry,
.Keaton Beach area and Madison County's own Christian Bike
Club! Thank you all who braved the cold to show your support
We can safely say -that around 250 kind-hearted people
came by to show their good heartedness and support.
We couldn't have made this a success without all of our
dedicated volunteers who were on hand to help.
Our day began with a 38 mile Bike run, with Taylor Coun-
ty Deputies on hand to give our bikers a chance to get. onto
Highway 221 north as a group and an escort to the County line.
Lunch started being served around 1:30 after all of the bik-

did finally get it going. Ricky Norris did a wonderful job as the

When I first met the person in charge, he introduced me to his
associate, which was a woman by the name of "CINDY." When we
shook hands I noticed a firm grip for such a soft small hand and it
became clear to me that these hands had not been using a pick axe
or shovel very long, however, when she picked up on the conver-
sation, I could tell that she was not" just another pretty face."
Not only did she make it perfectly clear to me what improve-
ments the road crew would be making for the joining to the private
Road, but she was a polite listener, when I started ranting and rav-
ing about the deplorable condition that ,the Well diggers and Own-
ers had left the road in over 3 years ago, and about my wild ride
through this damage, back on April 5th of 2006, when I was almost
thrown out of the stretcher, bruising my right knee,enroute to the
Hospital, for back spasms. The next day my back was fine, but my
right knee was in terrible shape, all of this would not have hap-
pened had the road been repaired after being chewed up by the Well
digging construction workers. Had the road been renamed proper-
ly, the ambulance driver, in all likelihood would have used the

Reason For Road Names!
Springs S/D was to be a gated community also, which would begin
at IVY Drive and Dead End at the Blue Springs Primitive Babtist
Church. Over the years, due to the absence of regular attendance,
the Church property has been raped by trespassers, and even the
COUNTY wants to join in on the raping by plowing through pri-
*vate property to connect the Dead End of Blue Springs Church
Road with Indigo Street and the other two separate Sub. Div's.
HELLO !!!!, Has anyone ever thought to contact the property own-
ers and ask them if they would like to sell that portion of property
that they are abusing it appears that the County wants it both ways,
to use the Church Rd as part of their 911 emergency route from In-
digo St., however, it don't work that way, unless, the County wants
to start maintaining Indigo and change the name, again to Blue
Springs CHURCH Rd., then, even a Caveman knows that my house
number would be odd and my neighbor ACROSS the road would
be even. I suppose the County really don't give a RAT'S behind,
because the Bottling Company will probably own all op this area in
the next 10 years, and they can keep it up. BULL!!!
The property accessers need to put their heads together, and
come up with a better map for the emergency vehicles to follow.
Had the ambulance driver & team had a more detailed route, this
past April, they would have arrived at my Front Door instead of my
Back Door at least 3 minutes earlier. I'm equally sure that when
Steven Scott, put his John Henry on the Development Declaration
back in November of 1980, that he did all his home work, making

It is a tragedy, but why do we
have to look into her personal
life? What did she ever do that

was a beautiful woman, who

She was a beautiful teenager,

For Creating Daylight Savings Time
Huge bouquets of daisies to Becky Sellers and Peggy Primm, who drive me to and from
school each day, and to the other friends who provide transportation to the store, to church, and
other places. I' m not worthy, but I sure am appreciative.
Fragrant miniature daisies to~ o local radio,station (thac;s..1230 on your AM..dial) for the
ready diet of real old-time country Western music. Where else can you hdar Ernest Tubb, Jim
Reeves, Cowboy Copas, and those other beloved singers? I especially enjoyed the Ghost.Riders
in the Sky program one afternoon when they played a talkie about, Calamity Jane, then read the
list of top 50 Western movies. What fun!
As much as I admire Benjamin Franklin for most of his life's work, I must give him darts
every year for devising the idea of daylight savings time. I agree with the wag who said, "It's like
an.Indian cutting off one end of his blanket and sewing it to the other end to make it longer." You
do realize we're changing in March instead of April this year.
Sharp, glass-shard darts to whoever is in charge of traffic management in the county. The
number of crashes and near-wrecks at the intersection of Pickle Lane and Hwy. 90 during school-
,traffic hours is appalling. An officer directing traffic, a traffic signal, or something needs to hap-
pen there before we have fatalities.
Darts to parents who allow their teens to own clothes inappropriate to their age and for school.
Yes, you do have the right to burn that suggestive shirt or that revealing blouse. You are the only
person who can teach your child modesty and respect for others. The child does not have a "right"
to own anything until he is 18.
Daisies to parents who get their children involved in choir and other church activities early.
Of the students I teach, those are the ones who seem the happiest and most hard-working.
Daisies to people who adopt pets from the animal shelters. You have a kind soul.
And, of course, darts to pet-owners who do not take steps to see that no little Fidos and
Fluffies fill the animal shelters. Do the world a favor spay or neuter.
Darts to chew-tobacco addicts who hand out a plug to a young child, thinking it's cute to see
him grimace and spit. You deserve a millstone around your neck.
Daisies to you if you make someone feel welcome in your presence. That's a priceless gift,
and your reward will be great in Heaven.

America Saves Week
America Saves, a nation wide campaign, will be next week,
February 26 March 2nd. This broad coalition of nonprofit, cor-
porate, and government agencies help individuals and families save
and build wealth. Extension is a collaborator, through information
and education Americans are being encouraged to pay down debt,
build an emergency fund and save for a home, education and re-
Sounds like a tall order, but it is consistent amounts of money
over time that builds up savings. According to America Saves, re-
search shows that there are "savers" and "spenders" in all income
levels. Understandably, modest incomes can not save as much as a
family at a higher income level; however, all have the ability to
build wealth over time.
One of the first steps you can take is to build an emergency
fund. This is money put into savings, for unexpected expenses. It
keeps' you from putting purchases on your credit card which costs
you more in the long run because of interest charges. It is estimat-
ed that Americans take out'$2 billion a year in high interest rates to
cover unexpected bills. A goal of $500 to $1,000 in an emergency
fund will allow you to meet unexpected challenges such as a car re-
pair, a visit to the doctor or making a home repair.
It is recommended that you keep emergency savings in a bank
or credit union savings account. Keeping emergency money sepa-
rate from your checking account will reduce the temptation to use
it for every day purchases. A regular savings account offers easy
access to your money for any unexpected expense you might en-
counter. Some banks have a minimum deposit to open an account
and a minimum balance to avoid fees, so you may need to put mon-
ey in a jar for a few months until you have enough to open an ac-
If you want to build an emergency fund, but just don't have the
money, take a hard look at your spending habits. That soda you buy
every day or the stops for a quick meal because you are too tired to
cook may be draining your wallet. You spend much more than you
think, so try eliminating one habit and save the money. Another
easy way to accumulate money is to empty your loose change each
night; you'll be surprised how much money you'll have at the end
of the month.
Once your emergency account is funded, you can expand your
savings to reach long term goals, like a down payment for a house
or a child's college education. For more ideas on money.manage-
ment and savings, contact the Madison County Extension Service.

at the Madison Masonic Lodge January 22nd. 'The men were
Chris O'Brian and Kit Storey.
The evening began with a delicious dinner at 6:30 p.m. in the
downstairs of the Masonic Lodge building on Rutledge St. Help-
ing with the serving of the dinner were the Madison Order of the
Eastern Star ladies and men.
Jim Stanley, long-time Mason Secretary/Treasurer, said that
there were six other Entered Apprentices also at the Jan. 22 meet-
ing, which is the most he said he had ever seen together for their'
degrees at one time. In all, eight young men were together for
their Entered Apprentice Degrees.
The six other Entdred Apprentices present at the meeting to
welcome O'Brian and Storey were Burt Waldrep; Kevin Stout;
Paul Kinsley; Noland Greene; Carl Peterson, Jr. and Scott Webb.
A packed crowd included approximately 50 men and women
who had come to welcome the young men to the Masonic Order.
Stanley said that the Madison Lodge is growing faster than he
has seen it in many years, and that there have been about 200 ap-
prentices accepted since 1969.
Should anyone have any questions about becoming a Mason,
they may contact Stanley, or any other Mason in Madison.

February 26, at 4-H Camp
Cherry Lake, in Madison
Watson served as county
agent for many years, and was
active in Farm Bureau. His
service in WWII prepared him
for responsibility and leader-
ship in Florida Cooperative
Extension Service as county
agent. His father, William L.
Watson, was the first Duval
County agent. His greatest
dream was fulfilled when ,he
was appointed the third agent
to serve Duval County. A lib-
erty ship was named for his fa-
ther in 1944 to commemorate
the wartime work of Florida 4-
H club programs.
Watson was inducted into
both the Agriculture Hall of
Fame and the 4-H Hall of
Fame. "Seeing 4-H youth
grow and develop into respon-
sible adults is one of the most
rewarding and greatest feel-
ings one can have," Watson
has said. His "Hi Neighbor"
TV program earned the Na-
tional Farm Broadcasting
Award, followed by the Free-
dom Foundation George
Washington Honor Medal.
Proud to have been a part
of the Greater Jacksonville
Fair, a scholarship was estab-
lished in his name by the fair
for students in agriculture.
'His leadership extended to
the National Association of
County Agents as Southern
Director for three terms.
Many consider him to be
one of the most highly regard-
ed extension agents to ever

The February gathering of the 55 Plus Club met at the Unit-
ed Methodist Cooperative Community Center on February 14.
The room 'and tables were beautifully decorated with a
Valentine theme. Cherry Lake United Methodist Church was the
host for the luncheon, and served hot soup, sandwiches, desserts,
coffee, and iced tea.
Jimmy Hardee, President of the Board of the United
Methodist Cooperative Ministries, introduced the speaker for
the event, Selma B. Sauls, who is the Planner and Director's
Staff, Division of Driver Licenses for the State of Florida. Sauls,
a native of Greenville, knew several people in the audience.
Sauls was an energetic speaker and enlightened the group on the
issues of the older driver. Conditions that relate to age can af-
fect driving. Some are vision, hearing and cognitive abilities.
Sauls presented the Florida Grand Driver program. This is
an education and awareness program of the Florida Department
of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. The goal of the program
is to educate the public about the effects of age on driving abil-
ity and to encourage drivers to make appropriate choices. We
age, choices that maximize personal safety and the safety of our
communities are evident.
It may not be obvious to an older adult or concerned friend
or family member that a driver's physical capacity has changed.
Some of the signs that an older driver needs assistance are:
*Neglects to buckle up
*Has difficulty working the pedals
*Has difficulty merging on freeways, or turning onto busy
*Has trouble seeing other vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians,
especially at night
*Ignores or "misses" stop signs and other traffic signals
*Reacts slowly to sirens and flashing lights or emergency
C"Weates. straddles lanes. drilfs into other lanes or changes
lanes % without signaling
*Gets lost or disoriented easily, even in familiar places
Sauls posed several questions to the group: "When you
aren't able to drive anymore, will you know to stop driving?"
and "How will you get around when you can't drive anymore?"
Sauls mentioned several options for getting around, such as pub-
lic transportation, senior shuttles, friends, and family and taxi
service. She said that retiring from driving doesn't mean retiring
from life! It doesn't matter how you get THERE, but what you
DO when you get there!
There were many brochures available after the meeting for
The next meeting of the 55 Plus Club will be March .14,

Health And Care
Of Older Cats
Today with some help from our friends from the American
Veterinary Medical Association, we are going to answer some
questions about the health and care of older cats.
Q: Our cat is getting older and sometimes she seems con-
fused. Can cats become senile? Is there any medical treat-
A: Older cats can exhibit some signs of "senility." This is
due to a gradual degeneration of brain tissue. Some of the com-
mon signs are confusion, lack of coordination, lethargy, and
unexplained changes in behavior. There is no treatment for se-
nility. To be sure that this ig the problem, schedule an appoint-
ment with the veterinarian.
Q: I recently read in a magazine that cats of any age, al-
though it is more common in older .cats, can suffer a stroke
from a ruptured or blocked blood vessel in the brain. What are
the signs of a stroke?
A: The signs of a stroke include circling, depression,
seizures, lack of coordination, muscle spasms, parlaysis,
blindness, collapse, loss of body function, droopy eyelids, and
flickering of the eyes. If your cat exhibits any of these signs -
immediately call your veterinarian and get care promptly.
Q: I've been told that hearing loss is common in older cats.
Does this mean that nothing can be done to improve our older
SA: Don't assume that your cat's impaired hearing is due to
aging until your cat has been examined by your veterinarian.
Older cats are susceptible to ear mites, tumors, a buildup of
earwax, and other problems that can be treated. Schedule an
appointment with your veterinarian to determine the prob-
able cause of your cat's hearing problem.
Q: I was told that hyperthyroidism is a common disorder
in older cats. What should we watch for in case our cat is suf-
fering from hyperthyroidism?
A: Some of the signs include: excessive hunger or thirst;
frequent urination; restlessness and irritability.
Even though more food is being eaten, the cat may lose weight.
The cat may vomit or have more bowel movements. If you ob-
serve any of these signs schedule an appointment with your

Birds are becoming very popular with pet owners. To-
day, with some help from our friends at the American Vet-
erinary Medical Association, we are going to answer some
questions about the health needs and care of birds.
Q: I've read many bird care books and they frequently
suggest using an infrared light as a heat source
in a cage. What is the benefit of using an infrared lght in
A: Before you use infrared bulbs, or any heating de-
vice, talk to your veterinarian. When used correctly, an in-
frared bulb's rays are thought to be easN on the eyes and the
rays will penetrate beneath the skin to improve
flow that's what is needed to promote heahng.
Q: My sister told me that our bird might become
chilled if we take him in the car to the veterinarian. Our bird
seemso'be very ill "'Howvcan get him tq the. doctor w ith-
. out making him sicker?
A: By delaying medical care, you can cause more
harm. You might want to call ahead to the clinic and see if
you can arrange to spend as little time as possible in the re-
ception area. Try to keep the temperature during the trip the
same as it is at home. Warm up the car and wrap the cage in
a blanket. Remember to bring samples of your bird's drop-
pings and food debris. The doctor may need these to aid in
diagnosing the problem.
.Q: I know that an ill or injured bird can benefit from a
warm environment. At what temperature should I keep a
A: A temperature between 85 and 90 degrees Fahren-
heit is suggested. Talk to your veterinarian about setting up.
a hospital cage. You'll be able to watch the temperature
carefully. A small enclosed space can easily overheat. Re-
member to be very careful and not place the heat source too
close to the bird.
Q: Our caged bird is recovering from an illness. When
is it safe to return her to the cage with the other bird?
'A: Discuss this with your doctor. It is important that the
recovering bird be able to withstand the stress. Moving the
bird out of the sick cage too soon can cause a relapse. Oth-
er birds will often harass a weaker bird. A recuperating bird
usually requires 12 to 16 hours of sleep per day, so don't
hurry her return.

Shirley Joseph Is School District's New Equity Officer
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
*Shirley Joseph is the Madison County School District's new
Federal and state laws require that an individual or office be
designated by local school districts to oversee the enforcement of
policies dealing with discrimination and harassment, ensure com-
^ IB pliance within the public school system and to bring event, prac-
tices and/or policies, which may be inconsistent with equity re-
quirements, to the Superintendent's attention.
"Shirley is very well-known and respected throughout the Dis-
-- trict," Terri Garrett, the School District's Director of Adminis-
Sherley Joseph trative Service and Human Resources, said. "She's very good at
looking at the issues from a perspective that encompasses the full 360 degrees. She can take a task
and make sure it comes to fruition in a manner that is workable. She has the ability to take care
of issues in whatever manner is assigned."
"We have started a Mission/Vision committee, which will help with equity issues," Joseph
said. "It's spearheaded by me and it's a very diverse committee."
Members of the committee, include Joseph, Gwen Hubbard, Timothy McQuay, Tim Sanders,
Ethan Bonella, Elizabeth Gonzales and Deloris Simmons Franklin.
"These people bring a unique perspective to the table for Shirley," Garrett said.
Joseph said that, during an interview for a job, the committee would ensure that there is eq-
uity in the interview process by having an independent observer available.
"This will enable the committee to come to a consensus about the best candidate for the job,"

Eleven Things You Will Not Learn In School
Bill Gates recently gave a speech
SA at a High School about 11 things
they did not and will not learn in
school. He talks about how feel-
good, politically correct teachings
created a generation of kids with no
concept of reality and how this con-
Scept set them up for failure in the
ScHoo real world.
Rule 1: Life is not fair get used to it!
Rule 2: The world won't care about
Iyour self-esteem. The world will ex-
"" -- -'- pect you to accomplish something
BEFORE you feel good about your-
Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-presi-
dent with a car phone until you earn both.
Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait 'till you get a boss.
Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for
burger flipping: they called it opportunity.
Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes; learn from
Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way
from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought
you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try de-
lousing the closet in your own room.
Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some
schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to
get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are
interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.
Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and
go to jobs.
Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
If you can read this Think a teacher! If you are reading it in English -Thank a soldier!
MADISON COUNTY SOLID WASTE AND RECYCLING
"WORKING SMARTER FOR BETTER RESULTS"
By Jerome Wyche
An unknown author once said, "Prior planning makes for
better results." This is the daily objective of the employees
assigned to the Solid Waste and Recycling Department.
Because we are determined to continue to provide the citizens
of Madison County with our best effort, the work plan changes
almost on a daily basis. The ability to have the foresight to
make immediate changes is a credit to a workforce that is the
epitome of a team... hence the term "Teamwork" comes into
full focus. Empowering employees to carry out their duties
through the delegation of authority is a sound managerial tool
that enables this department to work smarter, getting better
results. I entrust the workload within the boundaries of
Madison County and the weekly tasks that require completion
to Foreman, Clay Blair, and the Office Administrator, Sharon
Smith. Combining their efforts, and that of others, this upbeat
30-person department, including the Collection Site Attendees,
functions in a mode of high expectations. When our morning
meetings end at 7:00 AM daily, everyone has their assignment.
Although sometimes challenging, "We get the job done."
Madison County is beginning to show. positive signs of
growth and expansion. The employees of this department have
long acknowledged that we must make preparations to handle
the business and population expansion that are poised to hap-
pen. Updating equipment and logical assignment of human
resources is key to preparation. In addition to equipment and
personnel usage, strategic use of real property is also a part of
the equation. Effective on or about February 28, 2007, the.
Solid Waste and Recycling Department will be removing the
green collection containers located on Highway 53 North (Ty
Mussy), Highway 146 (Little Cat Road) and Flowers Road, as
well as the containers on Highway 146 .(Little Cat Road) and
Pickle Lane. Two (2) 30 cubic yard containers Will be placed
at Highway 146 (Little Cat Road) and Pickle Lane as the cen-
tral collection and disposal location. The reduction of green
collection containers along the roadways in Madison County is
one of the goals of this department. Placement of the large con-
tainers at Highway 146 (Little Cat Road) and Pickle Lane will
offer greater collection capacity to our citizens.
As the Coordinator for Solid Waste and Recycling, I do
understand that this will be a deviation from the norm, when
disposing of your household waste and other materials. For
those that reside in the affected area, impacted by the change,
I solicit your assistance and cooperation in helping to make
this a smooth transition. Careful thought and objective plan-
ning are the basis for the change. After use of the central col-
lection location, I am hopeful that you will recognize the ben-
efit of this decision. To ease the feelings of anxieties, daily
monitoring and maintenance of the central collection site will
be a prioritized function of this department.
In other areas throughout the county, I am pleased to report
that Madison County is relatively clean, compared to other sur-
rounding counties. There is a noticeable increase in refuse
along some of our secondary highways and roadways. On sev-
eral occasions, citizens have alerted this department of uncar-
ing passersby disposing of household waste along roadsides.
County Ordinance No. 96-73, Madison County Clean
Community Ordinance, prohibits such actions "Violators of
the ordinance shall be prosecuted in the Madison County
Court. Upon conviction of a violation hereof, the violator shall
be punished by a fine up to $1,000 but not less than $300 or
imprisonment in the Madison County Jail for a period of up to
one (1) year in jail or both."
Protecting the environment is everyone's responsibility.
Keeping Madison County clean and appealing is a matter of
choice and pride. I think that we are different compared to
other cities and towns because it shows.*My hat is off to. The
Madison County Correctional Institute. The Correctional
Officers that supervise the state inmates, impacting our county
cleanliness deserves a round of applause. It requires a concert-
ed effort on all our behalf. As you make your way across the
winding roads of our county, give some thought to not throw-
ing trash out of your vehicle. Your actions will truly be appre-

FWC Is SHARPENING CAPTIVE WILDLIFE REGULATIONS
Commissioners for the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) approved new
rules concerning reptiles and other
captive wildlife Wednesday. The
rules went into effect Jan. 1.
Meanwhile, FWC staff is
working with stakeholders and oth-
ers to stem the invasion of nonna-
tive species that displace or prey on
Florida's native species in the wild.
FWC officials plan to work
with the agency's Captive Wildlife
Technical Advisory Group during
the next year to address unresolved
issues such as classification of
wildlife, regulation of crossbred an-
imals, public contact with wildlife,
wildlife sanctuaries and wildlife re-
New rules address appropriate
locations for housing certain
wildlife and the possession and
housing of certain reptiles. When
they take effect, new rules will re-
quire persons who keep wildlife in
captivity to have critical
incident/disaster plans describing
what they will do in the event of a
hurricane, flood or fire to prevent
animals from escaping into the
They will prohibit providing
false information to qualify for per-
mits where documented experience
is required. The rules also define
"reptiles of concern" and establish
requirements for possession. Also,
they require having a bite-response
plan and cage card identification
system for facilities with venomous
Escapes of reptiles of concern
or nonnative species of venomous
reptiles must be reported immedi-
ately upon discovery to FWC's Di-
vision of Law Enforcement.
These rules create the list of
reptiles of concern the Indian or
Burmese python, reticulated
python, African rock python,
Amethystine or scrub python, green
anaconda and the Nile monitor
A permit is required to possess
these reptiles of concern. People
who possess these reptiles as pets
must be at least 18 years old and
complete an application and ques-
tionnaire for the free permit
The applicant must demon-
strate knowledge of the reptile of
concern by answering questions
about the species, dietary needs, ba-
sic husbandry and caging and safe
housing requirements. People who
possess reptiles of concern will
have to ensure their pets are perma-
nently identified by implanting a
microchip once the reptile reaches
two inches in diameter. They also
must meet specific record-keeping,
reporting, safe housing and mini-
mum cage requirements.
"FWC supports responsible
pet ownership. We encourage peo-
ple wanting to own captive wildlife
to learn about the animal, its needs
and behaviors before getting-thean-
imal," said FWC Capt Linda Harri-
son. "Owners also should be aware
that Florida laws prohibit the release
of normative animals."
Violations of these rides could
lead to non-criminal infractions
($50 fine) up to criminal misde-
meanor charges (up to one year in
jail and a $1,000 fine).
"Before we begin enforcing
these new rules we will focus on ed-
ucating the public and those who
are interested in possessing captive
wildlife," Harrison said.
The FWC also is offering an
option to pet owners who no longer
are able or willing to take care of
their fish, amphibians, reptiles or
On March 24 in Clearwater,
pet owners may relinquish their an-
imals at FWC's second Pet
Amnesty Day. Owners of animals
that require a permit, may bring
the pets in with no questions
asked. The FWC will attempt to
place surrendered pets with quali-
fied caregivers. During this
event, people may visit nonnative
fish and reptile exhibits and a
snake micro-chipping demonstra-
