private citizens, not the police, that brought that case
to an end.
Owning a firearm, It's about reverence, it's about
courage, and it's about sacrifice. It's about the right
and duty, to keep and bear arms, because each of us
has the right, and the responsibility, to defend our-
selves and others from evil." Israel has it right; pri-
vate citizens, School Teachers and students included,
are now armed in all schools. We Americans need to
do the same.
My liberal friend left red-faced, and stooped shoul-
dered. On the way out he told I won this one, but I still
lost the election. See what I mean about liberal De-
mocrats? They are "intellectually challenged" or as
my landlord would say, "dumb as a brick".

Private Gun Ownership Is

Our Most Crucial

American Freedom
My very liberal friend born and brought up right
here in Madison, came to see me again last week. Af-
ter our last verbal exchange, I thought I would never
see him again. Typically liberal, I think he may be in-
tellectually challenged. This guy still believes the De-
mocrat Party is the way to go, well, that is until
firearms are mentioned. Then my liberal friend gets
on the right side really quick.
I mentioned that HR 1022 was in sub-committee in'
the House of Representatives brought on by none oth-
er, than Cynthia Mckinney, a Democrat. The follow-
ing is pretty much what our conversation was about.
Although the' constitutional "right to keep and bear
arms" is often ridiculed as a relic from America's
past, private gun ownership is actually more crucial
to American freedoms and security today, than at any
time in our history.
The Second Amendment, is considered by many
to be the most important of all American rights. With
the Democrats now back in power, the challenge of
the Second amendment is dramatically coming to a
head and may actually find it's demise..
HR 1022 anti gun bill is in committee, at this very
moment. Should the Congress, along with the Senate
version, pass HR-1022 it virtually wipes out 'all
Firearms ownership in the United States.-This time it
won't be just the so called, Assault Rifles. This bill in-
cludes "Intermediate Sniper Rifles" what is an Inter-
mediate Sniper Rifle? '"Any firearm.that can shoot 100
meters accurately That my friends, is every Deer rifle
you have in your closet, including the little Ruger 10-
22. Oh! And also included is the "50 bore firearm",
the "50 bore firearm" could include your favorite Shot
Gun from 20ga. on up to the 10ga. These shotguns are
all over 50 bore (one half inch inside-diameter) Also
mentioned is "if it has been used or can be used by
the Military or Police, it will be banned" That would
include your favorite Pump Shot-Gun. Handguns
have not been excluded in HR 1'022 either, any self-.
loading "Semi Automatic" handgun wouillk'~ lff-idA 3
ed in the ban, along with'big bore revolvetW., .rrgM .-
num to the Smith. & Wesson .500.
The string of horrendous mass murders,in "gun-
free zones" most recently at Virginia Tech, and be-
fore that, the October slaughter of Amish schoolgirls
in Pennsylvania has fueled a new debate over gun
control, "gun-free zones" and "lax gun laws."
Like the Virginia Tech, massacre, crimes are seldom
stopped by police. Only armed citizens present, dur-
ing the commission of the crime, can deter and stop
violent criminal acts.
Several U.S. leaders have confirmed, that major
devastating attacks on innocent Americans are in-
evitable, the armed citizen is now absolutely essen-.-
tial for protecting America's communities from at-
tacks, either by our own citizens or b:y terrorists.
With the increased focus of private gun owner-"
ship, a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C.,
ruled the handgun ban in the nation's capital is tin-
constitutional and a violation of the Second Amend-
ment. That case, in turn, has set the Second Amend-
ment on a direct course to the United States Supreme
Court, which has avoided all firearm issues for
decades. .
My opinion is,.only one thing could have stopped .
the Virginia Tech disaster. Cho Seung-Hui walked
into a classroom, lined them up, and shot them. There
is absolutely nothing, anyone, could have done to stop
Cho from killing those young people. "Nothing that is,
other than a student or a professor with a firearm.
Indeed, this may sound like a radical re-embrace of
the Second Amendment by law-abiding, responsible
Americans, however this is exactly what America
needs (now), (today). The next mass attacker might
not be armed with a couple of handguns like Cho, but
rather, with weapons of mass destruction. We are a
nation under attack by terrorists, it's only a matter of
time before we get hit again perhaps a citizen that is
armed, can stop that attack, before it happens.
Can individuals really make a difference? What
about the police? "In most cases "like the Beltway
snipers that terrorized Washington, D.C., in 2002" it's

cause she pounded the

June Is National Dairy Month


It is the first day of
June and that means
it's National Dairy
Month and the one
thing you need to know
is that you never out-
grow your need for
milk! Diary foods sup-
ply 75% of the calcium
in the American diet. It
is a nutrient that plays
an important role in
maintaining healthy
bones and teeth.
Many nutrition ex-
perts agree that Ameri
cans do.not get enough
calcium in their, diets.
Children often prefer
sodas and surveys show
they begin to cut down
on dairy foods by the
age of ten, just when
their calcium needs are
increasing. Adults, on
average only get half of
their calcium needs
each day.
Calcium needs vary
throughout our -life-
time. Active teens need
1300 mg. of calcium
which means 'eating
four servings of calci-
um rich foods each day.
Young children (under
the age nine) and adults
under fifty years of age
need three servings
each day
For a number of
years now, nutritionists
have recommended
adults over fifty get 1200
mg. of calcium. Bones
tend to lose density as
we age, so this age
group's recommended
daily allowance of cal-
cium is almost as great
as the teenager. Re-
searchers now know
these levels help reduce
the risk of osteoporo-
sis.
If you are worried
about the calories and
fat in dairy food, look
again. There are so
many low fat and fat
free dairy foods on the
market today you have
a large selection at the
grocery store. To boost
your calcium intake try
these suggestions:
Drink one or two 8
oz. glasses of skim milk
each day
Use plain or vanilla
yogurt in place of may-
onnaise in recipes for
potato salad and cole
slaw.
Make shakes and
smoothies with skim
milk or yogurt and
fruit.
Add powdered milk
to foods you prepare -
pudding, bread,
muffins, soup can get a
calcium boost. A single
tablespoon of nonfat
powdered dry milk adds
52 migs. of calcium.
Use buttermilk for
mashed potatoes and


baked goods its low in
fat and adds flavor
without calories.
Top a salad with low fat
cheese.
Serve frozen yogurt
for a refreshing dessert.
The National Dairy
Council has some great
recipes using dairy
food on their website.
It's always best to get
your calcium from
foods.


serve daisies, though.
She deserves roses!.
For years, Rosie
O'Donnell has been
spewing her venom.
When someone fires
back at her, she sudden-
ly becomes the victim.
Give me a break. This
is the same woman that
compared Christians to
terrorists by saying
Christians are just as
dangerous to the U.S. as
radical Muslims. I am a
Christian and I don't
walk around with a
bomb strapped to my
body and I didn't even
cheer and throw candy
to children when Sad-
dam Hussein was exe-
cuted like the radical
Muslims did on Sep-
tember 11, 2001. I
thought about where
Saddam's soul would
spend eternity. The
thought was sobering.
Another person
who the media has ded-
icated a lot of time to is
Cindy Sheehan. It's not
hard to understand her
hurt at losing a son in a
war that many people
don't understand. She
said on Memorial Day
that she had given up
her battle to protest the
war in Iraq. While I
agree with Sheehan's
right to protest a war
and to say whatever
she wants to about the.
president, I don't think
that she should be-
smirch her son's mem-
ory by saying that he
died for nothing. He,
was a volunteer in the


U.S. military. He under-
stood the consequences
and he did not run
from the trouble. He
gave his life fighting
for freedom.
A lesson that sticks
out to me from Ameri-
can History is how
America tried to iso-
late itself from the rest
of the world during
World War II. While
people in Europe and
Asia were fighting for
their lives, we stood
idly by. Suddenly,,
America came' under
attack as the Japanese
began bombing Pearl
Harbor. Never again
would the United
States try to isolate it,
self from the rest of
the world. Americans
who went to war dur-
ing WW II had to stick
it out to the bitter end.
Another thing that
sticks out to me is that
during World War II,
Korea and Vietnam,
many soldiers did not.
have a choice. They
were drafted. Today,
they are all volunteers.
We need to respect and
pray for those who are
serving overseas in-
stead of comparing our
troops and leaders to
terrorists like Rosie
O'Donnell did.
Elizabeth Hassel-
beck did the right thing
when she gave Rosie
O'Donnell a tongue
lashing on The View.
You did good, Liz. You
are the new Queen of

some gal named -;
Amy brags about fi-
nally reaching size i
2 and going on ':' Q
about how she was
humiliated to show herself in
anything larger just gives me
the giggles. About two years
ago, I started from a size 18 and
got down to a 12 petite in about
16 months. I wasn't really em-
barrassed to be so wide; I just
felt that the weight was too
much for my less than 5' ?"
height. At size 12, I guess Amy
would still have stayed in her
house and bathrobe.
. Guess what I didn't do to
lose weight. You're right; I did
not invest $300 a month in
frozen meals to be delivered to
my door. Sure, Dan Marino and
Don. Shula can afford the fees
with all the moolah they made
in football; however, us average
folks really can't spend $300 a
month for food for just one per-
son. The rest of the family
would lose weight for sure,
since there would be no gro-
cery-shopping budget.
Another step I did not take
was planting a large piece of
machinery in my living room.
You've seen them advertised in
magazines and on television. A
collection of steel parts held
together with bungee cords.


-, You're supposed to
spend at least 30 min-
S utes at the time us-
ing your arms and
legs to stretch the
I^ cords and move
the heavy steel
parts around.
Again, the rest of
Slie the family will
lose weight with
er J all the exercise
er ar. they get walking
J A . around the walk-
r er-ciser or what-
S:' ever.
I also didn't join
a gym or club. Those places
usually aren't open when I fi-
nally get some free time like,
for instance, ten in the p.m.
Anyway, you have to be sure
you look good before going out
in public, even a public where
everybody will be sweaty.
About four months after I
got down to the size 12, I devel-
oped some physical problems
and ended up in the hospital
having surgery I do not recom-
mend this as a weight-loss
plan, even though I lost anoth-
er three or four sizes. My
friends express dismay about
how thin I am. Frankly, I feel
some concern myself. So much
so that I have started eating
French fries and hamburgers
again. We'll see how that turns
out.
Anyway, how you look at
the beach is your own busi-
ness. Slim or not, go on and
have a good summer swim-
ming, fishing, or sunbathing.
And if a good ice-cream sand-
wich comes along, enjoy that
too. You can jog it off later.
Happy summering, no mat-
ter what size you.are.

City of Madison, Florida

2006 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the
quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of
drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect
our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. The city's water is secured from three wells
located around the City. Your water is drawn from the prestigious Floridan Aquifer and is chlorinated for disinfection purposes
then fluoridated for dental health purposes; a sequestering agent is also added for the purpose of corrosion control.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Mr. Johnny Webb, Water
Supervisor for the City of Madison at (850) 973-5081. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled
meetings. They are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall, 321 SW, Rutledge St., Madison, FL.
The City of Madison routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules,
and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January
I to December 31, 2006.. Data obtained before January 1, 2006, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing
done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations. As water travels over the land or underground it can pick up substances
or contaniinants such as microbes, inorganic or organic chemicals, and radioactive substances. All drinking water, including
bottled drinking water, may be reasonably expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. It's important to
remember that the presence of these contaminants does not necessarily pose a health risk.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and
wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some
cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
The Department of Environmental Protection has performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. These assessments
were conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. Potential
sources of contamination identified include underground petroleum storage tanks, dry cleaning facilities and wastewater treatment
plants. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at
www.dep.state.flus/swapp.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater
runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff and
residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial
processes and petroleum production, and can, also, come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain
contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits
for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a
safe and dependable water supply we sometimes need to make improvements that will benefit all of our customers. These
improvements are sometimes reflected as rate structure adjustments, Thank you for understanding.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-
compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants,
people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections.
These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate
means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe
Drinking Water Hotline (8004264791).
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've
provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The htghet lel ofI a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set
as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology,
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known
or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is
convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial
contaminant .
Action Level (4L). thccren ~_oii iiminatat hal il t .iereeded, triggers treatment ri otiei" ,'equiiimin 'that a water

Non-Detert (ND) mean, not detected and indicates that the substance was notfound by laboratory analysis.
'Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to I million parts by weight of the
water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb)or Micrograms per liter (g/I)- one part by weight of analyze to I billion parts by weight of the water
sample.
Picocarie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
The state allows-us to monitor for some contaminants less than once per year because the concentration of these contaminants
does not change frequently. Some of our data, though representative, are more than one year old,

Below are a number
of tips for preparing
for hurricane season:
*Make sure you have
the right equipment to
handle post-storm clean
up.
*Check existing
equipment to make sure
it's in good working or-
der.
*Get repairs done in
advance of a storm or
consider purchasing new
equipment
*Consult the owner's
manual for maintenance
and safety warnings
*Make sure you have
adequate fuel and that
the fuel is stored properly
*For chain saw use,
make sure you have
gloves, eye and ear pro-
tection
After the storm: For
generator operation:
*DO NOT operate
power generators in en-
closed areas. Carbon
monoxide is a colorless,
odorless gas that can be-
come concentrated in en-
closed areas and cause
serious injury or death
For chainsaw operation:
*Keep children and
pets out of the work area
*Handle gas carefully

and don't overfill
*Keep hands and feet
away from ANY moving
parts
*Wear proper
footwear, snug clothing,
gloves and eye/ear pro-
tection
*Do not overreach
*Secure your footing
and plan retreat path
*Watch for "kick-
back," a violent reactive
force propelling the cut-
ting bar back toward the
operator

For every year, there
is a pre-approved list of
names for tropical
storms and hurricanes.
These lists have been
generated by the Nation-
al Hurricane Center
since 1953. At first, the
lists consisted of only fe-
male names; however,
since 1979, the lists alter-
nate between male and
female.
Hurricanes are named al-
phabetically from the list
in chronological order.
Thus the first, tropical
storm or hurricane of
the year has a name that
begins with "A" and the
second is given the name
that begins with "B." The
lists contain names that
begin from A to W, but ex-
clude names that begin
with a "Q" or "UI -,
There are six lists
that continue to rotate.
The lists only change
when there is a hurri-
cane that is so devastat-


ing, the name is retired
and another name re-
places it.
How Hurricanes get
their Names:
In 1953, The National
Hurricane Center began
naming storms, rather
than relying on the old
system of map coordi-
nates for identification.
Originally, all storms
were named for women,
but, starting in 1979,
men's and women's
names were alternated.
An international
committee of the World
Meteorological Organiza-
tion now creates and
maintains the annual
lists. Names are used on
a six-year rotation, mean-
ing the 2005 list will come
up again in 2011. (See this
year's hurricane season
outlook) Names of espe-
cially damaging and
deadly storms are re-
tired. From the 2004 list,
Charley, Frances,
Ivan and Jeanne -
four major hurricanes
that struck Florida will
not reappear when the
list returns in 2010.

I Ribbon Cut For Rails-To-Trails Project In Madison County


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A ribbon cutting and
a grand opening cere-
mony was held for the
new Rails to Trails pro-
ject on Friday, May 18, at
the Pinetta Volunteer
Fire Department.
The Rails-to-Trails
project encompasses the
old rail line from Han-
son to Pinetta and offers
walkers, hikers and bik-
ers a scenic panorama
of the historic area.
Rails-to-Trails is
part of an ecotourism
effort being pushed by
the Suwannee River Wa-
ter Management Dis-
trict (SRWMD), the-De-

though there was some
opposition, to it from
people who lived in the
area near the trail, the

prove the trail.
SRWMD Director Jer-
ry Scarborough wel-
comed everyone to the
event, which was re-
plete with hamburgers
and other great food pre-
pared by his staff. Local
dignitaries, including
county commissioners,
school board members,
the Chamber of Com-
merce and city man-
agers were on hand for
the event.
The nearest Rails to
Trails areas outside of
Madison County are the
St. Marks Historic State

"Peach

By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Sweet, succulent
peaches are available for
you to pick! Madison
Peach Farm, owned by
Sharlene and Carl
Blomquist, offers delicious
Texas Royal and June Gold
peaches at U-Pick prices.
Madison Peach Farm
is a family business, and
children Eric, Carl, and
Susan help their parents
run the farm. Open only
on the weekends, the farm
has about 200 trees to pick
tender, juicy fruit.
The trees originally
came from a bare root
grafter in Tennessee. It
took two years just to get
the business off the
ground, and another year
to see the literal fruits of
all that labor.
The Blomquists' run a
wholesale nursery in Hills-
borough County called
Cedar Tree Farm.
To reach Madison
Peach Farm, travel east on
Highway 145, and turn
right onto Highway 254.
Next, turn right onto Cala-
dium Road. Sharlene says,
"You can't miss the signs.
They're at 254 and at Cala-
dium."
A small bucket of
peaches is four dollars,
and a three-gallon bucket
is ten dollars. Madison

: In 1876, Elijah James Hays left
the western section of Madison
County and came to Sandy Ford,
the site of the present town of
Greenville. Hays acquired a great
acreage of land, from the Good-
man family, some of which was
bought from a man by the name of
Bemus, a northerner.
Nearly all of the present site of
Greenville and much of the sur-
rounding land came into the pos-
session of Hays.
In due time, through the enter-
prises of Hays, a thriving settle-
ment was growing, where only be-
fore a few families lived. E
Hays, a cotton ,buyer who sold of th
his cotton direct to W. W Gordon dent
Co., exporters in Savannah, Ga.,
was a diverse man. Large farms, a
general mercantile, a drug store (where
Hays was a pharmacist), a brick yard,
cotton gin, grist mill, and turpentine st ill
were all operated by Hays. The business-
es increased the quality and convenience
of life in Greenville.
Hays served as official surveyor and
laid out all of the plans for the town of
Greenville. He later donated generously

Wow, that's a whole heap of

"We just got stuck on the name
George. My husband, my two
sons, a grandchild, and a great-

George."
Dot has worked at Greenville
City Hall for over 40 years. She
started out as a clerk, and retired
from that position not once, but
twice. She's back, and according
to her, she's here to stay.
"I don't like keeping house
too much," is her only explana-
'tion as to why she enjoys her job.
That, coupled with the fact that
she enjoys interacting with the
folks who come in and out, has
kept her at City Hall for all of
those 40 years.

The last burial in Harby Hill Cemetery was that of Samuel

his wife, Sarah Hampton Smith. who was deceased on May 2, 1942.
Upon the establishment of Evergreen Cemetery in Greenville,
the use of Harby Hill declined.
In 1993. Lyles and Mary Harper initiated a campaign to clean
up the neglected piece of history. They succeeded in raising $400
towards the beautification of the historical cemetery $200 was
spent to have the road crew come and mow around the cemetery
As of 2007, $200 is still in the bank, dedicated to the clean-up of

Happenings At Madison Firs Baplisi (hurh


By Nell Dobbs
Just read in the Carrier of February
2, 2007, about Jim Searcy's prayers reach-
ing China. About a month before his
death, he'd responded to his dad's news
about doors being opened to place Bibles
in China and that they must raise money
so Communist China's boys and girls
could receive God's Word! Shortly after
his death, 1,121 Bibles had been donated
in his memory. Children would also re-
ceive 4,151 New Testaments because of
Jim. What a blessing to know how one
person can make and does make such a
difference. Amen! What a difference! He
will long be remembered for this deed
and other deeds. Update: 2,000 Bibles sent
and New Testaments will be printed in
China. Such a blessing to talk with Jim's
mother and know more. Bless them. Very
dear to us since our cousin, Marie Con-
ner, was a missionary in China when the
Communists took over. After that, -she
served in Taiwan.
Preacher Manning Hicks and Preach-
er Jake Phillips said at his funeral on Sat-
urday that Mr. A.J. (Jake) Gay will long
be remembered for his many deeds. They
said he'd be remembered for his humor,
his godliness, his love of 'the Lord and the
church, his love of family and for every-
body everywhere. It was a wonderful ser-
vice for a wonderful man and friend. We
pray comfort for his family.
In Preacher Heard's absence, Preach-
er Ronnie Combass gave us a timely mes-
sage from Joshua 4:1, talking of God's
goodness telling our children morn-
ing, noon and night, on waking, or going
to bed about God's deliverance of His peo-
ple from Egypt. Even in our day, we are to
do likewise and tell of his goodness, care
and provision.
How fitting this message was as Betty
and Jack McLeod had 54 family members
here for reunion. They ate Saturday in
the fellowship hall. Several of them were
in morning church and we were sorry we
did not realize this. One of Betty's first
cousins was here from the Philippines
where he has been a missionary for nine
years. I wish he could have spoken to us.


Bless all of their family Also, congratula-
tions on their little Susan Culver
McLeod, born Wednesday, May 23, to
Leslie and Jack, grandfather Kenneth
and great-grandparents Jack and Betty
Special blessings to all of them. They
love the Lord and mean so much to our
church.
Congratulations to Ronnie and Mari-
lyn Ragans, as they now have a son (son-
in-law) James Mikel Hurst. Their Lisa
and he'married April 8 and live in Colum-
bus, Ga. May the Lord grant them a long
happy life together living for Him. Bless
them. There's to be a wedding shower for
them Sunday, July 1, at our church.
The arrangement Sunday was by
Tom and Nita Fico in memory of those
who died in service to our country and
also in honor of all of our servicemen
and women serving all over the world.
Bless them and may God keep them safe
and give us victory
Mark Branham gave some history of
Memorial Day and Veterans Day We had
a presentation of many of our military
members and give thanks for them.
Quite a different song by Shellie Hol-,
brook, her dad and Liane Wakefield: "He
Ain't Never Did Me Nothing But Good."
We liked it!
No night service.
Summer is full of many activities.
Pray earnestly for our Vacation Bible
School June 10-14, every aspect of it, all
the prayers, preparations, students,
workers, message and for souls to be
saved.
There are so many ill among us and
may we continue to pray earnestly for
them Donna Driggers' mother, Doris Al-
derman; Orlando recovering at home
from surgery; Norman Hayes; our Jesse
doing well after oral surgery; Mary Bush,
not doing good at all; and all others.
Prayers of comfort for Carroll
Blalock's family; for the Ray Ragans fam-
ily; and all other sad ones.
May the Lord help us to live that our
names will be written in God's Book of
Rememberance.
Amen!

Beat Jaguars


Bulldogs In Jamboree


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madison County High
School finished its spring
football-training season,
with two wins in the
spring jamboree on Satur-
day, May 19.
The Cowboys blasted
the East Gadsden Jaguars
32-8 in the first half and
shut out the Taylor Coun-.


ty Bulldogs 21-0 in the sec-
ond half.
Jabarri Thornton put
in a stellar performance
for the Cowboys, catching
two touchdown passes on
Saturday evening.
Head Coach Frankie
Carroll said that he is ex-
.pecting a good season
from the Cowboys next
year. The team will still


Madison County High School Cowboys


run the wing-t offense, but
will be geared toward a
passing attack more.
"The players worked
hard in the off-season,"
Carroll said, noting that
the players had hit the
weight room quite a bit.
The coaches spent
time at Florida State Uni-
versity and in Ohio at St.
Xavier High School, learn-
ing about the three-stack


defense.
"We will probably use
it next year," Carroll said.
Carroll said that there
is competition at quarter-
back next year, with Blake
Sapp returning. Cheston
Hardin, a newcomer to
Madison, is pushing Sapp
hard.
One familiar face that
is returning to the Cow-
boys is Mikhal Kornegay,
who will be the defensive
corners' coach for the Cur
Dogs. Kornegay played on
the state championship
team before going to play
for Tennessee Tech and
then Florida State Univer-
sity. During Kornegay's
senior year, he was a cap-
tain for the Seminoles.

alligator trapping license
and hide-valida-
tion tags is








$271.50, and non-
residents. pay
$1,021.50. The cost for
each additional alligator
hunting permit (allowing
the take of two alligators)
is $61.50 regardless of resi-
dency. All fees are nonre-
fundable. Any hunter
who takes an alligator
must complete and send in
an Alligator Harvest Re-
port Form. The informa-
tion gathered from these
forms enables FWC biolo-
gists to monitor alligator
population trends and im-
pacts of the annual har-

vest.
An alligator trapping
agent license is also avail-
able for $51.50, which al-
lows the license holder to
assist a trapper in taking
alligators, but only in the
presence of the permitted
trapper. All persons seek-
ing a harvest permit must
be at least 18 years of age
by Aug. 15.
The alligator hunting
season will run 11 consec-


utive weeks from Aug. 15
through Nov. 1.
To educate partici-
pants on the rules and reg-
ulations of the hunts, the
FWC offers a no-cbst,
three-hour training
and orienta-
tion program,
which is held
S'"*.. at loca-
t tions

.. throughout
.- the state. Per-
mit recipients
are not required to
attend, but first-
time participants are
strongly encouraged to do
so. Courses will be offered
in July and August, and
permit holders will re-
ceive, by mail, permit
packages listing exact
dates and locations.

The Florida Fish &
Wildlife Conservation
Commission issued an or-
der Wednesday restrict-
ing vehicle use on Holey
Land and Rotenberger
wildlife management ar-
eas, as well as a portion of
the Everglades and Fran-
cis S. Taylor Wildlife Man-
agement Area.
Motorized vehicles,
motorcycles, airboats and
all-terrain vehicles are
prohibited on the Holey
Land and Rotenberger
and on Water Conserva-
tion Area 3A North in the


Everglades and Francis S.
Taylor Wildlife Manage-
ment Area.
The order, which will
take effect at 12 a.m. May
4 and will remain in effect
until rescinded, was
prompted by an inordi-
nately low water level in
the areas due to a regional
drought. These special
regulations are necessary
to minimize the likeli-
hood of motorized vehi-
cles or airboats starting
fires that will harm
wildlife and wildlife habi-
tat.
