Brush Fires Can Turn Deadly


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Brush fires are a danger
that can become deadly if they
are not controlled.
Archie Strickland, fire in-
spector for the City of Madi-
son, said that some of the fires
start because of carelessness
in burning trash.
"If you're going to bum
trash, call the Division of
Forestry for a bum authoriza-
tion," he said. "They can tell
you what the drought index
is."
There are stiff fines and
penalties for people who get a
ticket for burning without au-
thorization.
Strickland suggested that,
even with a permit, people


burning trash or leaves should
use a barrel with a screen over
it.
"Burning is not allowed in
the City of Madison," Strick-
land said, noting that since
homes are so close together
that no one can meet the strin-
gent setback requirements that
the city has set.
People who are doing
controlled-bums to bum off
property should also be care-
ful in the dry weather.
A brush fire, four miles
south of Lee, turned into a
wildfire and burned pine trees
on Tuesday, March 20.
The same day there was a
brush fire in Greenville off
Highway 221.
A brush fire occurred on


Archie Strickland
NE Coffee Way, as the result of
rekindling from a neighbor's fire.
Last Saturday, a brush fire
occurred on Anderson Pond Way
in Carswell Trailer Park.
The Division of Forestry.
handles the investigations for all
brush arid woods fires.

A Need For Revival
Revival.
One of the meanings, and the one most closely associated
with the one I'm speaking about is defined by the Encarta World
English Dictionary as "a meeting or a series of evangelical
Christians intended to awaken religious fervor in those who at-
tend." Other meanings include "the-process of bringing some-
body back to life, consciousness, or full strength" and "the re-
newal of the validity of a contract or the effect of a judicial de-
cision."
I am looking forward to the revival at Midway Church of
God next week. I've told a number of friends that I need to be
revived. I need to be engaged in a series of meetings that will
bring me back to full strength and renew the validity of my con-
tract with God.
It has been a long time since I have been in a true revival,
with my spirit being lifted up. I pray that it is about to happen
again.
A number of other churches are helping Midway with this
revival. The youth group from Madison Church of God will be
there on Monday evening. On Tuesday night, the choir from
Dowling Park Church of God will be in attendance. Our youth
will perform on Wednesday evening and the church will enjoy a
fellowship meal before'the service that night. On Thursday and
Friday nights, the youth group from Live Oak Church of God
will be there.
Evangelist Mike Carson will conduct the services. Original-
ly from Tallahassee, Carson and his family now live in Ten-
nessee. He has been featured on a number of TV appearances,
including on TBN.
I will warn you -- Mike Carson is crazy! If you're into
stuffed-shirt religion, you might as well stay home, but, if you
want to see a lively preacher, come see Mike. He'll tell you
about Jesus.
If you're looking to be revived, why not join me at Midway
Church of God March 25-30. Services will begin at 7 p.m. each
evening, with the exception of Sunday, when church will begin
at 6 p.m.
I hope to see you there!

cause and those of the non-profit groups he's supporting. With
support from the media and visibility, public supporters can con-
tribute to the organizations on Acevedo's Web site.
During the journey, Acevedo will be posting to an online journal
and providing updates and photos along the way so people can
follow his progress as he makes the journey. His main stops will
be at various facilities which support disabled veterans and their
families as well.
Major communities along the route include: Saint Augus-
tine;, Gainesville; Tallahassee; Pensacola; Mobile, Ala.; Baton
Rouge, La; Houston, Texas; Austin, Texas; San Antonio, Texas;
El Paso, Texas; Las Cruces, N.M.; Silver City, N.M.; Tempe,
Ariz.; Phoenix, Ariz.; and San Diego, Ca.
The Fallen Heroes' Ride Across America is a long-distance
cycling tour from Saint Augustine, Florida to San Diego, Cali-
fornia. Starting on 23 March 2007, the event will be dedicated to
raising awareness and funds for disabled veterans and the fami-
lies of military members killed in action. The intent is to pay a
symbolic tribute to the stamina, endurance and courage needed
by our disabled veterans and their loved ones on their road to re-
covery.

federal disaster loans that are
available to small businesses
located in the counties of Bak-
er, Columbia, Gadsden,
Hamilton, Jackson, Jefferson,
Leon, Madison and Nassau.
"These counties are eligi-
ble because they are contigu-
ous to one or more primary

gia. SBA recognizes that dis-
asters do not usually stop at
the county or state lines. For
that reason counties adjacent

tions Center East.

ble to apply to SBA, but nurs-
eries are eligible to apply for
economic injury disaster loans
for losses caused by drought
conditions.
Eligible small businesses
may qualify for loans up to
$1.5 million. These loans are
available at four percent inter-
est rate with loan terms up to
30 years SBA determines eli-
gibility for the program based,
on the size and type of busi-
ness and its financial re-
sources. Loan amounts and
terms are set by SBA and are
based upon each applicant's
financial condition. Under this


disaster declaration, SBA can
not provide loans to agricul
tural producers.

"Spring Cleaning

With A Cat"


A long-distance friend frequently forwards me emails with
pictures. I usually don't open them, but this one had a title con-
taining the word "Cat." Who could resist?
d I laughed till I cried. The text directed me to froth up some
dish detergent in the toilet bowl, open both lids, find your cat,
and cuddle her while you inch your way to the bathroom. Then
drop the cat in the toilet, slam the lids, and sit on them. In the
e
next few minutes, flush the toilet a couple of times.
st
The accompanying picture of a very angry, very wet cat was

hilarious. I was tempted to print it and hang it on the bathroom
wall.
The idea was that spring has arrived, and with it comes the
urge to clean. I personally would not recommend dropping your
cat into the toilet; imagine the mess when she gets out!
Anyway you might employ your cat like a Swiffer if you tie
her to a broom, or tape her to a long pole to dust over the floors,
overhead fan blades, and the top of the refrigerator.
Hey! It's just a suggestion. I believe that everyone who lives
- in a house should help with the cleaning. If the cht expects fried
- chicken livers every Sunday, than she should contribute. Now if
I could just figure out how to get her or the dog to like the base-
. boards...
s- Yep, spring cleaning time is here. I wish you well. I wish
I- your cat well, too, if she survives the ordeal.
_- Keep those emails coming, Kathy. Some of them are really
- fun.

Dietary Guidelines Help You

Make Better Food Choices
Eating right may seem to be a topic you want to avoid, you
think you have to restrict yourself and eat foods that don't taste
good. In reality, a balanced food intake over time is a better way
of thinking. Since it is National Nutrition Month until the 31st,
we'll take a look at different nutrition topics this month. You may
not realize it, but the Dietary Guidelines for Americans are a prac-
tical resource to help you get on track with your food habits. They
are revised every five years to adjust the recommendations and to
reflect the most recent scientific nutrition research; the latest revi-
sion came in 2005.
Eating a healthy balance of nutritious foods is still the central
theme of the Dietary Guidelines. Since Americans seem to be
gaining more weight, chronic diseases such as heart disease and
diabetes are on the rise. To combat these health risks, there is
more emphasis on calorie control and physical activity. The first
three key recommendations for the general population relate to
weight management.
Adequate Nutrient Within Calorie Needs Consume a va-
riety of nutrient-dense foods from the basic food groups. Eat
more fruits and vegetables, whole grains and low fat dairy foods;
these foods are lower in calories and full of nutrients your body
needs to maintain health. At the same time, limit foods high in
saturated and trans-fats, cholesterol, added sugars, salt and alco-
hol. If you are not sure what nutrients a food contains, read the
nutrition label.
Weight Management To maintain body weight in a healthy
range, balance calories from foods and beverages with calories
expended. In other words, don't eat more food than you will bum
off in a day. Take a close look at the foods and beverages you con-
sume. Read labels for the number of servings in a'package, you
may be surprised the beverage you're drinking is 2 ? servings
which means you are getting 2 ? times the calories printed on the
label. That quick snack you've grabbed might very well be much
higher in calories than you thought. To prevent weight gain over
time, make small decreases in what you eat and increase physical
activity.
Physical Activity Engage in regular physical activity and
reduce sedentary activities to promote health, psychological well-
being, and a healthy body weight. To reduce the risk of chronic
disease in adulthood, engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate-
intensity physical activity most day of the week. If you can't
find 30 minutes in a day, try 10 minutes at a time. During your
coffee,brake, do, a few .sapJle exerpicsJtake,a 10 ninjute walk
during your lunch hour and then do:a physical activity for'10 15
minutes when you get home in the evening.
The Guidelines go a step further to say for most people,
greater health benefits can be obtained by engaging in physical
activity of more vigorous intensity or longer duration and suggest
60 minutes of moderate activity on most days of week. To
achieve physical fitness, a combination of cardiovascular condi-
tioning, stretching exercise for flexibility and resistance exercise
for muscle strength and endurance is recommended. It is a good
idea to alternate the type of exercise you do during the week.
You can walk several days a week, lift weights on alternate days
and build stretching exercises in before and after each session.
Daylight savings time Will begin this weekend, so you will have
more daylight hours for physical activity. Of course, with any ex-
ercise, it is recommel'ded you consult your doctor before starting
a program. /
A consumer byhchure with more details on the new Dietary
Guidelines is available at www.heathierus.gov/dietaryguidelines.
We also have a yriety of fact sheets at the Extension office on nu-
trition topics,.ouch as fat, fiber, sodium to name a few, and are
available upon request.


Spring Had


The Smart Shopper


by Marla Armbrust
THIS WEEK'S TIP: The
icemaker in my refrigerator is
on the blink. However, the re-
frigerator is less than a year
old and still covered under
warranty. Most likely, we'll be
able to get a new unit for free.
Of course, when we


FrSr Time In The Area
I', t z. .A . A ,st


bought the fridge, we did not
go for the extended warranty.
Generally, that can be a waste
of money. If you purchase
such a large appliance from a
reputable outfit, you don't
have to worry that it's going to
break down on you in the near
future.
If you're unsure about
various manufacturers' prod-
ucts, do some research. Check
with" Consumer Reports and
Good Housekeeping for rec-
ommendations. Ask your
friends, neighbors and rela-
tives. Whatever you do, don't
fall for the "cheapest" deal.
That's not always the way to
go, although it can be tempt-
ing. Many times, when it's a
"cheap" deal, you're getting,
less-than-quality merchandise
where appliances are con-
cerned, Do your homework,
and you won't be sorry!

Sprung!
Good Morning! We just thought spring had sprung! We re-
ally experienced a few days of summer until winter slipped back
in and slapped us in the face Saturday morning. Beginning to-
morrow though Tuesday we're back to our usual Florida
spring weather with temperatures in the eighties. But still, no
much needed rain in sight. On Friday Jacksonville had more
than its share, while west of us dark clouds gathered and glow-
ered menacingly, but nary a drop did we get. Oh, well, enjoy the
beautiful sunshine!
And now, let's get serious, very serious. Switching pronouns
and subjects and please consider everything about our nation,
past present and future before you answer. Do you think Amer-
ica is a peaceful nation? You've got to be kidding if you an-
swered yes; Perhaps two or three years following the Pilgrims'
landing, during the depression years, the fifties and the Reagan
years, when even then only our strength and a strong leader
saved us from war. Otherwise, in the 230 years of America's ex-
istence, we have been seriously involved in many wars, the
worst one being the Civil War, when brother fought brother, and
we almost destroyed a great young nation less than one hundred
years of age. And that war still rages today, thanks to certain
groups in both races who keep the still-burning embers stirred
into flames. To our credit, in World Wars I and II, we were the
knight on a white horse which saved the world from real tyrants.
That is the way this present war was supposed to end; with
the tyrant vanquished in short order and our heroic troops back
in America. Instead, like the Civil War, it may never end for its
cause is too deeply embedded in hate one religious sect has no
tolerance for and hates anyone who is of another sect. Religious
intolerance is impossible to erase how can we ever expect to
install a brotherly love type of government with Sunnis and Shi-
ites working hand in hand?
And when has America had a real statesman heading its
government? Can you think of anyone since Washington or Jef-
ferson? Our strongest leader in times of crisis was probably Tru-
man, who didn't run for the office, but made one of the most dif-
ficult decisions of them all.
Intolerance. which leads to hate,-,;hich lead to war, begins
irithe mind of the individual person. Ho\w quick to anger are
you? Take the subject of road rage. Whieninsome one cuts you off
because' he's in a hurry and almost causes you to have an acci-
dent, do you reciprocate by speeding up and trying to catch him?
What do you intend to do, ram his car, shoot his tire or even,
Lord forbid, shoot him? If you have a loaded gun in your car, is
it really for your protection or for revenge if needed?
Too many people are the 'me first' 'I'm more important'
type. They are too busy, too stressed out, to be considerate of
others. They don't seem to realize that stress kills. Remember
"The World is too much with us......We are laying waste our
powers." As Harvey Greene II often said, "Think about it!"

vated assault and trespass
after warning on Tues-

son Police Department
report, Patrolman Bran-
don Abbott was dis-
patched to the Madison m a
County Jail. Upon his ar-
rival, he saw several cor-
rectional officers outside' Theron McDaniel

Abbott identified as Theron McDaniel.
Abbott made contact with McDaniel and asked him about
the problem. McDaniel said that he had made contact with a fe-
male and the female's brother had begun cursing at him. He said
that he and the brother were about to get into a fight, so he
walked to the jail.
Abbott contacted the brother and the sister. They said that a
trespass warning had been issued against McDaniel on March
17. The brother had gotten into a verbal altercation with Mc-
Daniel and McDaniel had pulled a knife on him, in a threaten-
ing manner.

Arrests Made In Gift Card
Fraud Case Totaling More Than
$8 Million In Losses
An investigation by the Gainesville Police Department
(GPD) has resulted in the arrest of individuals suspected of us-
ing stolen credit cards to purchase large quantities of WAL-
MART and Sam's Club gift cards. When the investigation took
on statewide implications, the Florida Department of Law En-
forcement Gainesville Field Office (FDLE) (GFO) was asked to
assist.
The investigation began in November 2006 when
Gainesville WAL-MART stores notified the GPD of a gift card
scheme being conducted at their stores. Several suspects were
identified as using stolen credit cards to purchase large quanti-
ties of gift cards. Subsequent investigation revealed these sus-
pects and others had been traveling throughout Florida purchas-
ing large quantities of gift cards with stolen credit card accounts
and then redeeming the cards at WAL-MART Stores and Sam's
Clubs. Items purchased included computers, gaming devices and
big screen televisions. Losses experienced by WAL-MART and.
the banks issuing the credit cards currently total more than $8
million in Florida and are still being calculated.
Suspects arrested were charged with organized scheme to
defraud, a first-degree felony. Bonds were se,t at $1 million each.
Those arrested to date have Broward and Dade County address-
es. The Metro-Dade Police Department, FDLE Miami, and the
U.S. Secret Service joined GPD and FDLE GFO in the arrests.
Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum's Office of Statewide
Prosecution will prosecute those arrested.
Arrested and booked into a Metro-Dade County Jail facility
were Irving Escobar, 18, Reinier Camaraza Alvarez, 27, Julio
Oscar Alberti, 33, Dianelly Hernandez, 19, and Nair Zuleima Al-
varez, 40. Zenia Mercedes Llorente, 23, who turned herself into
authorities, was also booked into a Metro-Dade Jail facility.
Warrants for four additional suspects currently exist.
The investigation is on going and additional warrants and
* arrests are expected.

j h3 Relay For Life Set For May 4!h 5th


By Ashley Bell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
"It's about friends. It's about Survivors. It's
about family. It's about memories. It's about the
Mission. It's about finding a cure. It's about
HOPE. Relay for Life."
The .upcoming Relay for Life is scheduled
for May 4th 5th at the Madison County High
school football field. Funds raised will go to-
wards the preventing, detecting, and treating


cancer.
Founded in the late 1980s, Relay for Life
began as a simple fundraiser for a local Ameri-
can Cancer Society office. Then called the City
of Destiny Classic 24-hour Run Against Can-
cer, the idea was conceived by Dr. Gordy Klatt,
a colorectal surgeon in Tacoma, Washington.
In 1983, Dr. Klatt single-handedly ran and
walked for 24 hours, as people paid $25 to walk
or run alongside him for 30 minutes.


Those single 24 hours he raised $27,000 in
the effort to fight cancer. Following his
marathon, he brought together a committee to
organize a team relay event, and did so in
1986, having 19 teams relaying and raised
$33,000.
Join the fight and honor the ones who
were lost, respect the ones who have sur-
vived, and help prepare for the ones who will
be diagnosed.

By Ashley Bell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
There are more skin cancer patients diagnosed each year
than ovarian, colon, lung, prostate, uterus, pancreas, and breast
cancer patients combined, which adds up to over one million
skin cancer patients.
The majority of all skin cancers are caused by exposure to
ultraviolet rays, or UV rays. The exposure not only comes from
the sun but also comes from tanning beds. To avoid overexpo-
sure to UV rays limit direct sun exposure during the midday,
avoid tanning beds and sunlamps, wear sunglasses that block.
UV rays, coverup with clothing when in the sun, wear a hat,
and use a sunscreen with a of 15 or higher Sun Protection Fac-
tor (SPF).
When self-checking skin for cancers do so in a well-lit
room in front of a full-length mirror. Face the mirror and check
face, neck, ears, chest, and stomach. Be sure to check under the
arms, both sides of the arms, the tops and bottoms of hands, in
between fingers, and fingernail beds. Next sit down and check
the front of the thighs, tops of feet, in between toes, and toenail


beds. Now using a hand-held mirror. look at the bottoms of the
feet, calves, the back of thighs, buttocks, lower back, upper
back, back of the neck, and genital area.
There are two 1\pes of skin cancers: melanomas and non-
melanomas. When searching for non-melanomas. look for
spots,.growths, patches, bumps, or sores that haven't healed af-
ter two to three months. While searching for melanomas skin
cancers, follow the "ABCD" rule.,
*Asymmetry; One half of a mole or birthmark does not
match the other half.
*Border: The edges of a mole or birthmark are ragged, ir-
regular, blurred, or notched.
*Color: The color is not the same on the entire mole or
birthmark and may have shades of brown or black, sometimes
having patches of red, white, or blue.
*Diameter: The spot is larger than 6 millimeters wide (ap-
proximately 1/4 inch) or has grown larger
Although self-checking is convenient, a check-up by a doc-
tor is more effective in preventing and detecting skin cancers
before it is too late.

Simple Choices


For Prevening


Cancers
The number one way to avoid cancer is by cutting out
tobacco use-cigarettes, cigars, and smokeless tobacco. The
number of adult tobacco users in the U.S. is down, but
there are still 48 million who need to quit. Unfortunately.
each day 3,000 teenagers start smoking. Plus all smokers
endanger those nearby with second-hand smoke. Nearly
one-third of fatal cancers are caused by smoking. The
choice is clear: Quit or better, don't start.
Keeping your daily fat intake to a minimum will go a
long way toward reducing your risk of certain cancers For
a 2.000 calorie a day diet, that means no more than 66 fat
grams, and you should aim lower. Limit meats, mainly
high-fat red meats, and cooking oils, margarine and short-
ening. Limit high-fat dairy products a significant source
of fat. Use food labels to help you make wise food choic-
es.
If you drink, make it occasionally and sparingly.
Drinking as few as two alcoholic beverages a day may in-
crease your cancer risk. A dnnk is 12 ounces of regular
beer, five ounces of wine or a 1.5 ounces of 80-proof dis-
tilled spirits. The risk is e- en greater if you smoke or chew
tobacco.
Foods from plant sources-vegetables, fruits, beans,
breads, cereals, pasta. other grain products-are a powerful
weapon against many cancers. Five or more servings a day
of fruits and vegetables, plus grains, is the smart choice to
reduce your cancer risk. A sern ing is easy to swallow- 1/2
cup fruit or cooked vegetable. 3/-4 cup juice. 1/2 cup rice
or pasta, a cup of leafy vegetable, a medium apple or slice
of bread are just few.
Regular medical checkups and screenings are key to
protecting your good health.
Whether it's an aerobics class, a walk around the
neighborhood, taking the stairs instead of an elevator or
simply parking at the far end of a parking lot, 30 minutes
(or more) of moderate exercise most days keeps your body
physically fit and giLes you a much better chance of ward-
ing off cancer. Plus, exercise boosts your energy and en-
hances your overall quality of life. Make the choice- start
exercising today!
Protecting yourself from the sun's rays is one of the
simplest and most important defenses against cancer.
About 80 percent of the close t one million skin cancers di-
agnosed each year could be prevented. A few common
sense sun tips: Keep out of the sun when ultraviolet rays
are strongest (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.). Wear protective clothes
outdoor's, a hat to shade your face, neck, and ears- where
skin cancer frequently appears. Use sunscreen with a sun
protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher when outdoors. Ap-
ply sunscreen at least 15 or 20 minutes before going out-
side. Regularly, look at your skin in a mirror for changes
in the size or color of a mole or other growth spots. Have
a health care provider check any changes.

Happenings At


Madis n First Baptist Church


By Nell Dobbs
April 15th comes this year.
From Leaves of Gold:
"Taxes could be much worse; suppose we.
had to pay on what we think we're worth."
As we enjoy the beauty of spring, pure
white large Dogwood flowers, the Redbuds, and
the many Azaleas, and all the others, our hearts
rejoice!
Beautiful flowers were placed in the church,
in loving memory of Aubrey Blanton, by Chris-
tine and their children. We pray for them and
give thanks for their memories. Also, we were
glad to see so many of their family in church.
Bless them all.
We will rejoice forevermore that Jesus is the
Shepherd, the good Shepherd, the only Shep-
herd, and that he knows his sheep, each of us by
name, he calls us by name; cares about us. Our-
Dad often played piano and sang "The Ninety
and Nine," so it is really special to us.
The Shepherd searched for the lost one and
what rejoicing when he was found. Jesus is the
door, the only door, and when entering through
it to abundant life, here and now and forever-
'more full of love, joy, peace and patience, kind-
ness, goodness, faith, gentleness, and self con-
trol.
Dorothy Ballard said so well of Sarah
Rowe, at her funeral, that she exemplified these
qualities. Amen! Pray for us all to be that way.


A very good morning service; Lex on piano,
Liane leading music; Thelma DeHart singing,
"There's Just Something about that Name," and
it touched us. Chancel Chior singing "Jesus
Lover of my Soul," Preachers' message about
"Forgiving and Forgetting" from Matt 6:9-15
and Eph 4:29-32.
Every day is so busy. Children's chimes met
Sunday at 4 p.m. Business meeting that night,
quite lengthy, many things considered; columns
ready to be installed, dutied of our minister be-
ing streamlined; hard to believe over O preach-
ers sent in resumes! The committee earnestly
asks for our prayers.
Remember the baby shower Sunday, the
25th from 4-5:30 p.m. for Leslie and Jack
McLeod. Our youth group will lead Sunday
Night Serice.
So many are having problems and illi-
nesses among us and we pray for them.
Lenny Galbraith was in serious accident; Sara
Hendry was badly hurt in an accident; Todd
Hendry, problem with surgery; Ernestine Kin-
sey going to Mayo; Mary Bush is in Madison
Hospital; Faye Browning recovering from
shoulder surgery and is back in church; Mari-
lyn Washington is very ill; Brett and W. C.
Copeland; Terri Sherrard; and, John Rosen-
baum is in the hospital in West Palm Beach.
May the Lord bless us one and all in every
situation. He loves us. We love him, Amen.

National Agriculture Week


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
As the second largest industry in
Florida, National Agriculture Week holds a
special place in Down
South hearts. This year, N A T I
from March 19 to March
25, the United States cele-
brates the farmers and IA
ranchers that provide many
of the staples of the Ameri-
can diet. The overall eco-
nomic impact of agribusi- f,
ness in the Sunshine State M
equals more than 87.5 bil-
lion dollars.. W E
Farmers and Ranchers
are the first real environmentalists, imple-
menting radical conservation and recycling
practices. To produce a healthy crop, the soil
and natural resources must be maintained and
improved continually.
Through concepts such as reduced tillage


and contour farming, millions of acres of
land produce healthy crops without eroding
the soil. As all local farmers know, once that
rich soil is washed away, what's left over is
no place to grow grass,
0 N A L, much less a field of Silver
Queen corn.
This is a society that re-
'" Lies heavily on agriculture,
and as such it is imperative
that we recognize and curb
the impact of pollution and
other mal-effects on the en-
.vironment.
The nation relies on the
. K sustainability of the ecosys-
tem; if the ecosystem is un-
healthy, then so are our crops, and in turn so
are we.
Greene Publishing, Inc. celebrates Na-
tional Agriculture Week by saluting local
farmers- the pioneers of environmental pro-
tection.


Biodiesel F(

Farming
Every day, rendering
trucks stop at farms across the
country, carting away the fall-
en. Soon those trucks may be
fueled by the deadstock they
carry.
Rendering is a tough busi-
ness. Eighty years ago,.there
were 123 rendering plants in
Iowa recycling hides, grease,
and protein meal from downed
stock.
Now, there are two.
Of 274 plants nationwide,
many are attached to packing
plants. Only half service live-
stock producers directly. Reg-
ulations, economies of scale,
and competition have closed
or consolidated plants. Getting
permits for a new plant is im-
possible.
Mike Homan runs a pick-
up team in-livestock-dense
northwest Iowa. "We four
guys bring in a million pounds
a week," he says.
Recycling downers and
scraps is worth $100 a steer to
a packer, says David Meeker
of the National Renderers. "It's
enough to pay for the slaugh-
ter process," he says.
And there's even better
news. Rendered grease, it
turns out, can be converted --


or A Better

I Future
almost pound-for-pound -- to,
biodiesel. The 1.3 billion gal-
lons of rendered grease could
become 1.3 billion gallons of
biodiesel.
There's more. Rendered
grease costs about half as
much as soybean oil, .and
biodiesel plants can take mul-
tiple feedstocks -- soN bean oil.
cottonseed oil, or rendering
grease. The surviving render-
ers have figured this out
and are developing relation-
ships with biodiesel plants,
or they are building their
own.
Unlike petroleum,
which takes several million
years to produce, biodiesel
can be quickly manufac-
tured. In fact. the feed truck
that arri es at your farm to-,
morrow may be, fueled by
the rendering truck that
stopped by last month.


Organic Living For A Better Tomorrow


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
To be qualified as "Organic" a food
must be prepared without the use of pes-
ticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers,
hormones, irradiation to prevent spoilage,
and microwave cooking. Due to the re-
cent health craze that is sweeping the na-
tion, the demand for .
organically. grown .
produce is. quickly
outnumbering 'the
amount of product
readily available.
The process of
mass-producing or-
ganic produce is involved to say the least.
Fields must undergo a sort of cleansing
process-'a period of rest that rids the soil
of any unwanted chemicals. Sometimes
this can take months, and depending on
the level of contamination from conven-
tional growing methods, it could take
years. That, 'compounded with the
method of farming in the areas. close- by
means that more often than not it is
impossible to mass-produce a quality or-
ganic product.


I

'I


Thus, most organic farmers are like
Peter O'Toole; they grow a pure product
in planters, from nutrient rich organic
soil- such as Quincy's Mushroom Coin-
post. It is no more difficult to cultivate an
organic product than a conventional prod-
uct, but rather the steps one must take to
become certified as organic are much
more in depth.
It is a proven fact that
organic food is healthier and
more tasteful. Organically
S--'7i~': grown produce is. in its
purest form, not tainted by
the taste or odor of nutrient
stripping chemicals. Ac-
cording to www.momscape.com, organi-


cally grown, pro-
duce contains on
average 50% more
vitamins, minerals,
enzymes, and mi-
cronutri'ents than
conventionally
grown product. The
Journal of Agricul-
ture arid Food
Chemistry says,


"Organic veggies have 50-60% higher
levels of cancer fighting antioxidants than
tion-organic veggies."
It is simple enough to "Go Organic."
Many chain grocery stores such as Publix
and now Wal-Mart carry organic alterna-
tives. Still more health food stores such
as New Leaf Market (Tallahassee) and
small local growers like O'Toole's pro-
vide organic produce. i
One can even begin the process with.
healthy snacks for the kids. Buy an or-
ganic banana, freeze it, and you have a
healthy and organic frozen treat. Even
still, fresh organic fruit can be cut into
pieces and threaded onto skewers, and
served as the perfect summer snack.
