County Commission Votes To Change

PrOcedures For Road Closures


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison County Commission
voted to change the procedures for clos-,
ing roads at its Wednesday, June 6, meet-
ing.
During the discussion, there were
some concerns expressed by Bill Thomp-
son, a retired surveyor, about the closure
of the roads. Thompson pointed out that,
in the past, the commission had allowed a
property owner to close a road and had.


cut off legal access to the property from
other property owners.
The board voted to put in the proce-
dures that the boundary surveys, which
must be done at the cost of the person
wanting the road closed, include the
names of the owners of any property
which adjoins the road the property own-
er wants closed.
The board also heard a request from-
Chuck Hitchcock, building inspector for

Lee Council Considers Code

Enforcement Board


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Lee Town Council held their first
reading of an ordinance, regarding a
Code Enforcement Board at their Tues-
day evening, June 5, meeting.
The Council looked at the ordinances
that the town currently has in place. At
this time, if a property owner doesn't
want to follow the ordinance, the Council
doesn't have much authority to impose


sanctions against people who don't fol-
low them.
The new ordinance will allow so
many days for them to come in conjunc-
tion with the ordinances and, if they fail
to do, the Council can impose penalties.
The ordinance will be advertised and
voted on at a public hearing at the Coun-
cil's July 3 meeting.
The Council signed a memorandum.

I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of any-

The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory
are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine,
Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America.
Try to have things like the United Caucasian College Fund,
Cloud Magazine, White Entertainment Television, or Miss
White America; and see what happens... Jesse Jackson will be
knocking down your door.
Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a

one is trying to ban you from driving to the ball game.
I believe they are called the Boy Scouts for a reason; that is
why there are no girls allowed. Girls belong in the Girl Scouts!

I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is not a

I have the right "NOT" to be tolerant of others because they
are different, weird, or tick me off.

I think the police should have every right to shoot your sor-

can't understand the word "freeze" or "stop" in English, see the,
above lines.
I don't think just because you were not born in this country,
you are qualified for any special loan programs, government
sponsored bank loans or tax breaks, etc., so you can open a ho-
tel, coffee shop, trinket store, or any other business.
We did not go to the aid of certain foreign countries and risk

A Dream I Can Count On
Along with my sister, Abbie, and the youth and their
leaders at Midway Church of God, I visited Madison
Church of God on Sunday evening. The night was a spe-
cial youth night for the church and I decided to tag along
and take some photos for the newspaper, figuring I could
get a story out of it. I ended up with about three differ-
ent stories and an idea for another one in upcoming
weeks about Bobby Colvin, a former Madison County
forest ranger, working with the Navajo Indians and
putting steeples on their churches.
The night was packed with action and with noise.
Noise is a good thing in a church. The world makes so
much noise at rock concerts, bars and football games.
The church should be allowed to make noise, too, and let
everyone know that we stand for our Lord and Savior, Je-
sus Christ.
A band called Prize Fight, from Northside Church of
God in Perry, provided the, worship music for the
evening. Before they began singing, however, the Madi-
son Church of God praise team sang. They are awesome!
The church's drama team,did a skit and then Jerri
Ann Gray the youth pastor, spoke.
Jerri Ann began her sermon with a question that
she said that we didn't have to share our answer with
anyone. Her question was what is the biggest dream that
we could think of and want to come true, knowing that
we could not fail. After everyone wrote their answers on
the index cards provided to them, Jerri Ann said that
not she, but God, said that the dream is not big enough.
She then went on and.spoke about how sometimes our
own actions hamper our dreams being fulfilled. She
talked about how Moses had asked God to reveal His
(God's) glory to him (Moses) and Moses was allowed to
see God's glory, although he could not look at God's face.
I think about my biggest dream. It's one that I have
had since I was a child. .
Monday, June 4, marked the anniversary of my grad-
uation from high school. I had my special dream with
me then when I walked across the stage at Jefferson
County High School. It was there five years later, on May
4, as I marched across the stage at Florida State Univer-
sity. It was there when I woke up this morning. I haven't
fulfilled that dream yet.
My special dream has to do with being more suc-
essful with my writing career. As a dreaim.,itcannot
compare with Moses' wishrto see God in all-of His glory
While my small dream may or may not coii'e true even-
tually, I do know jhat, because of my salvation through
the shed blood and resurrection of Jesus Christ, that
one day, I will get to see God in His glory
That's a dream I can count on.

Petting The Pigeon's And

Other Pastimes
When The Kid was just under two, we lived in a
third-story apartment in Chicago. One window led to a
balcony from which we could watch the passers-by on
the street below and the folks coming and going in the
apartment across the courtyard. That balcony led to -a
variety of activities.
Through'the open windows, we could hear the local
pigeons cooing as they sat around our rooftops. The Kid
loved that sound, so whenever I tookhim out there, he
would sit and coo to the pigeons. I think he was hoping
to lure them onto the balcony so he could pet them.
Thank goodness none of them ever came down to inves-
tigate. I don't know what I would have done if they had
visited us run inside, I guess. Anyway, the pigeons and
The Kid kept it up all summer, a sort of cooing game.
Another neat thing was that we got to know one of
the families in the next building. They were Egyptian or
Iraqi or something like that. Their English was limited,
and my whatever they spoke was non-existent, so we
had a ball trying to understand each other. They ended
up being my sitter for The Kid whenever I had a church
dinner or something else to attend.
One of their attractions, as far as The Kid was con-
cerned, was that they had a pet chicken. It lived (illegal-
ly) in the basement of their building, and their children
took it into the courtyard and played with it like most
folks would a puppy The Kid was able to pet this bigger
pigeon, so he loved gong to visit them
Having added "cluck' to our list of sounds, we got
hold of a good animal book and began learning other
sounds. One afternoon, we were waiting in the van
along the curb of a huge building. I looked up and spot-
ted the biggest Great Dane I have ever seen leading his
master across the street. I turned The Kid in that direc-
tion and pointed to the sight. He stared for a moment,
then uttered. "Moooo."
Which was a step up from coo. He cooed at all the pi-
geons everywhere we went, and believe me, Chicago had
a pile of pigeons. I haven't checked to see if the apart-
ment where he lives in Savannah has pigeons, and I cer-
tainly haven't asked him if he (at age 39) coos at them.
Maybe he tosses them breadcrumbs. He'll sure have bet-


ter luck than he did with the cooing.
If you run out of things to do this summer, try to pet
a pigeon. Let me know how it turns out.

So Easy To Preserve
Year ago, preserving food during the summer was an
economic necessity; families depended on homegrown
food to see them through the winter months. Today,
many people still preserve their summer gardens; part
out of a time honored tradition and part because home
grown food just tastes better.
In spite of the dry weather, the preservation calls
are still coming in, which means many of you have
found a way to keep those gardens going. Whether you
are canning, freezing, pickling or making jelly, fact
sheets with research testing instructions are available
at our office.
Regardless of your method, food preservation
should follow USDA recommended practices. Canning
is still popular; it is a process of putting food in jars or
cans and heating them to a temperature-that destroys
microorganisms. Canning also inactivates enzymes that
could cause food to spoil. Air is driven from the jar dur-
ing heating and as it cools a vacuum seal is formed. It is
this seal that prevents air from getting back into the jar
and keeps microorganism from spoiling the food.
Freezing is one of the easiest and less time consum-
ing methods of preserving foods. Freezing doesn't ster-
ilize food; the extreme cold simply retards the growth of
microorganisms and slows down chemical, changes that
affect quality or cause food to spoil. It is, however, a
more expensive way to preserve food, because you have
to run a freezer year round.
This year, before you start canning or freezing, call
the Extension office for a preservation packet. We will
provide you with research testing instructions. If you
are looking for a different recipe such as canning salsas,
we have it. If you run into a problem, I can solve the
mystery or consult our food safety specialist at the Uni-
versity Remember, we are a phone call away to all of
your preservation answers.

After Nagy checked the interior, he did a perimeter
check of the building and made sure the area was clear
of everyone.
Deputy Kevin Anderson arrived on the scene and af-
ter he did an initial check of the building, Nagy took
photos of the crime scene and went into the building.
Nagy and Anderson noticed that two cash registers
were missing and that there were empty cigar boxes on
the floor near the counter. They found the store's video
recording system was operational.
Anderson replayed the tape and it was discovered
that two black males, between the ages of 18 and 24, had
committed the crime at approximately 2 a.m. that morn-
ing. They remained in the store stealing merchandise,
including cigarettes, beer and cigars, as well as the cash
registers. They were wearing blackhooded suits and
their faces were covered with while cloth. They ap-
peared to be wearing white socks over their hands.
If anyone has any information on who the suspects
are, please call the Madison County Sheriff's Office at

Do Not Replace Our

Florida Song!
Dreary, gloomy, sad sack Friday with blue skies un-
derlined with dense gray smoke.
Refreshing, cool and rainy thank the Lord! Satur-
day
Beautiful clear blue, sunshiny Sunday
All of this in one weekend! Except for a few heavy
showers when the water fell as if poured from buckets;
it was a farmer's rain. The earth held its arms skyward
in thankful welcome as it drank its fill. Our town was
one of the more lucky recipients as records showed it re-
ceived 5.3 inches. And we're glad that we are getting
some daily showers, too.
When we returned from Jacksonville last Tuesday
afternoon, we found that even our weeds were dead! An
audience of birds and squirrels gathered under the bird
feeder looking at us accusingly Well, we did leave the
water dripping for them! And the birds would have had
enough to eat if we could keep the pesky squirrels out.
But aren't they cute little rascals?
While in Jacksonville, we stayed at Vicki's where we
enjoyed spending time in a big rocker on the sunny back
porch while she and Sharon were at work. The mornings
were unseasonably cool for late May and the wind blew
most all day But we enjoyed watching the colts gambol
just over the back fence as we drank our morning coffee.
The mother of one. of the colts was so small and dainty
we named her Lady She was black and' larger than a
Shetland but smaller than a horse, Her colt was half as
large as his mother and red with white feet and a blaze
on his face. There were also two donkeys (who tried to
get all the apples and carrots) and the other black horse
and her colt. When we were there, before there was a
huge iron-gray horse, which we named Old Ironsides,
but he had been moved to another pasture.
The Diamond D ranch has continual activity, espe-
cially during the summer. While we were there, a large
group spent the weekend next door in the bunkhouse
and it was amazing that little noise reached us. The
landlady, though, had to make some of them move their
cars from in front of Vicki's gate. Both days huge trailer
loads were taken all during the day to various places on
the rancha4n- the driver could be heard giving them an
oral tour of the day such asseeingthe exotic petting zoo,
spending time at the playground and fishing :hole, hav-
ing picnics and going horseback riding. We even saw a
herd of the small Florida deer this time as well as the
'usual cows, buffalo, and 'the one huge ostrich which
.runs along the fence as cars pass we think he's lone-
some but he may just be asking to be fed. You are al-
lowed to do so. The ranch is huge and a very interesting
place. We would love to go on a tour and will, before
long.
But right now, we had better cut this short or Lisa
will do it for us. So long for this time.

PS. Mona said to us the other day, "I need a shot of
gumption," which we thought was rather cute, but told
her we didn't know if that was available at the local bar
we thought theyno longer even have wet t-shirt contests!

Do Not Replace Our Florida Song!
For quite some time I've heard .or read that our
hauntingly beautiful state song "Old Folks At Home"
(Suwannee River) is irrelevant, outdated and worst of
all 'politically incorrect' and needs replacing. There
were even suggestions to have a contest for school chil-
dren to write their versions from which to choose a win-
ner! I'm certain we have extremely intelligent students
in our Florida schools but to replace Stephen Foster!
Oh, but I forgot Foster was a Yankee! And I also
thought that the Yankee, Rebel thing is now also "polit-
ically incorrect."I
'Suwannee River' is a beautiful song penned by a fa-
mous composer poet about a lovely river and written
in the dialect of that historic era. Is this just the begin-
ning of the changing face of literature? I'm sure most
authors, especially our famous southern ones, have
used many dialects of their time which would today be
considered 'politically incorrect' by nit pickers. Are we
going to sit idly by while pea brains remove all 'offen-
sive' words from great novels? We just heard a TV docu-
mentary that 'we live in our past and take pride in our
roots.' Those 'offensive' words were long ago changed in
our state song but apparently that didn't satisfy our de-
tractors who either want the past rewritten or com-
pletely destroyed.
So, if a movement is not already underway to keep
"Old Folks At Home" as Florida's state song, I'm jump-
ing in with both feet to say that I not only will be glad to
start one, I will proudly do so!

Yankee born but Southern bred.

PS. I would like to cite Bill Cosly as a prime example
of both a good education and common sense, when on his
speaking tour and good, clean fun on television.

Recent changes on the school uniform policy are as
follow s: .. a' ;, ; . ;- ...
Skirts, shorts, and skorts must be at least knee
length, when worn appropriately at the waist.
School jackets with the MCCS logo will be worn dur-
.ing winter, a windbreaker, sweater, or any winder coat
that adheres to the current dress code will be acceptable.
No leggings will be allowed, all stockings must cover
the toe.
Pre K students may wear elastic waist pants without
belts in black, navy blue, or khaki.
MCCS logo t-shirts may be worn.
No garments or jewelry are to be worn if they dis-
play or suggest sexual, vulgar, tobacco, drug, or alcohol-
related themes.
No facial jewelry, except eyeglasses, will be allowed.
No lip, tone, eyebrow, or nose jewelry will be allowed.

Yeagerd's job descrip-
tion may be simple, but he
provides an invaluable ser-
vice to the city. Yeagerd
picks up household waste

He adds that the most
rewarding things about his
job are meeting new people
and learning places.
At 25 years old, Yea-


gerd says his future plans
include a job in law en-
forcement or corrections.
Yeagerd attributes his
success to a diligent driver,
Mike McQuay, without
whom the job would not be
possible, and to Willie
Carter.
Yeagerd says that he
has learned a lot from
Willie, who he has worked
beside for five years.
Billy Straughter is su-
pervisor of the Street De-
partment and Sanitation
Crew.
Sanitation workers are
an asset to the community;
they typically don't receive
the recognition they de-
serve. Without the men
and women who dedicate
their time to picking up
other people's refuse,
streets and whole cities
would be filled with waste.
Yeagerd, and others like
him, are responsible for
keeping Madison clean.'

Greene Publishing, Inc.
In 1995, a new and improved tower that looks kind of
like a golf ball replaced Greenville's original water tow-
er. About twenty years ago, the water quality in
Greenville wasn't as good as it ought to be. People got
sick because of rust or other deposits in the water, and
it was time for a new tower.
The town received a community development block
grant to replace the older, smaller tower.
Holding approximately 125,000 gallons of water, the
big golf ball in the sky has enough water in reserves to
serve the town for about a day, should the pumps fail.
The-likelihood that -the pumps-will--fail is slim to none,
considering theingenious design of water towers.
Water towers are tall enough to provide adequate
pressure to handle water. dispersion without electricity.
Each foot of height proves .43 PSI (pounds per square
inch). Typical municipal water supplies run at between
50 and 100 PSI, and most appliances only need 20 30 PSI
to operate.
Every few years the water tower will have to be

Swimming and playing ball and
doing anything that other six-year-
old boys enjoy is what Jonathan
Goley likes doing best. And then
there's art.
"He's very particular about
that," his mother
said.
One of Jonathan's
drawings was fea-
tured on a recent
Good Morning Show.
While Jonathan is
like many other boys
his age, he does have
something that's dif-
ferent about him. He
has a disease called
Gorham-Stout syn-
drome, which is also
known as disappear-
ing bone disease. He
also has a condition known as
venolymphatic malformation.
Jonathan's mother first noticed
that something was wrong. with
Jonathan when he complained that
his teeth hurt, as she was brushing
them when he was three years old.
"By the time we got him to the
dentist," she said, "he was losing
his baby teeth because the bone
was deteriorating."
In June 2005, Jonathan under-
went surgery so that doctors could
try and figure out what was going
on with him physically. It wasn't

until a trip to Massachusetts Gen-
eral in Boston this past April that
doctors diagnosed him with
Gorham-Stoutsyndrome.
Jonathan's mother said that


. Blanton &

Sons, Inc


Mass. General had only handled
four cases of the disease and that
the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Min-
nesota has only treated eleven cas-
es of the rare disease.
There are only 200 reported
cases of Gorham-Stout in medical
case history.
"There is no cure for.
the disease," Jonathan's
mother said.
Jonathan, who began
-treatment in May, gets
daily shots of interferon
and he was scheduled to
get an intravenous (IV)
injection on Thursday,
June 7. Doctors in
Boston will do a follow-
up with him in August.
In the meantime,
Jonathan continues to
enjoy being a boy. He has
an older brother named
Michael, whom he loves. He en-
joyed school at Lee Elementary
this past year, where he had Caron
Terrill as a teacher.
"'She was .great," his mother
said.
Jonathan will be going into
first grade during the next school
year.
"It will depend on how he does
if he will be home-based or be at-
tending the school," his mother
said.
Jonathan brings joy to his fam-
ily and friends.
"He's a comedian," his mother
related. "He's always coming up
with something funny and dancing
or joking or making comments.
He's a ham.",

Happenings At Madison First Baptist Church


By Nell Dobbs
Many prayers were made for rain!
God sent rain! We thank Him! How
blessed we are!
Beautiful flowers were placed by Ron-
nie and Gwen Combass in celebration of
their 45th wedding anniversary, which
will be June 17. Congratulations and
blessings as they continue serving God.
Preacher Heard thanked him for preach-
ing for him last Sunday and the good job
he did. Prayers for all of their family and,
especially, for their granddaughter Kim
in California.
Sunday messages June 3, 10, 17: "Be
An Encourager: Tithe." Geoff Hill gave
his tithing testimony at present, though
some times he'd been slack. Now, he and
Robin tithe to our church and give to
what needs there are at Greenville
Methodist. A stirring message. Just sad
not one 'Amen." I should have said it.
Dan Campbell, Phillip Holbrook and
Liane Wakefield blessed us singing, "Let
Me Walk By Your Side, Lord."
Billy Washington, as Deacon' of the
Week, made the offertory prayer. Beauti-
ful. In it, he said thanks for "the smile of
a daughter." Lil Lillian is growing up so
good. Chancel Choir sang, "Heart of Wor-
ship."
Preacher's message was "Being En-
couraged by the Law," using Malachi 3
and II Chronicles 31:2-12. He said the
Chronicles' message was one he wasn't
so 'familiar with but it is good. It says,
"Since the people began to bring the of-
ferings' into the house of the Lord, we
have had enough to eat, and have left
plenty; for the Lordhath blessed his peo-
ple; and that which is left is this great
store."
Leaders must show the way by giving.
We must follow. The tithe is the firstfruit.
We are to bless the Lord and to praise
Him.
Sunday night, June 10, at 5:30 p.m. 'is
the time we've been looking forward to
and praying for! Our Vacation Bible
School begins! Bless all involved and
grant lives to be changed.


Death has come again this time to
'Mary Bush, whose funeral was June 2, at
Pine Grove. Grandson John Troyer had a
sweet part of the service and told how
she came to be known as "Nan." Brother
Heard also preached. Preacher Bennett
played the piano and sang. It was great to
have fellowship with family and friends
and then for Sara Dene and me to stop by
Marcus and Dorothy Morrisons.
Friday, at Dr. Schindler's, we saw Son-
ny Rollings and he said they were on
their way to see her daughter, Lynette
Coukliu. He told me Saturday, she had
been in a coma in Tallahassee. He had
gotten to see her before she died. Her ser-
vice is today in Tallahassee. Bless all.
their family.
Sad to hear of the death of Thelma
Townsend Young. Bless all of her family.
I'd seen her nephew Troy Hendry oni
Monday and asked about their Sarah.
She'd started back to work but had a re-
lapse, so she had to come home. Bless her
and all of them.
Pray for Ronnie and Marilyn Ragans
as her dad, Mr. Floyd, of Ft. White, is
very ill at North Florida Regional in
Gainesville and for Ansley and Lee
Rogers in their loss.
Congratulations to Mrs. Eloise Stew-
art, who was 96 on May 30, to Norman
Haynes, 96, on June 5 and to Brett
Copeland now at home.
Sorry about the mistake last week of
Lil Sean Culver McLeod, the sweet little
baby boy (not a girl) of Leslie and Jack.
May the Lord bless them as they train
him in the way he should go.
All over the world...
Shellie Holbrook in Serbia as our
missionary
Melissa Osborne in Scotland for two
weeks. She left on June 5.
WC., Frances and Scot Copeland
home from a nine-day trip to Alaska.
Our Natalie with her dad in Con-
necticut for much for the summer.
May the Lord continue to bless us one
and all and our country!
Amen! '

With hurricane sea-
son as a reminder, the U.S.
Small Business Adminis-
tration (SBA) encourages
business owners to pre-
pare for the possibility of
any major disaster.
Since Katrina, the
SBA has rebuilt its disas-
ter response process to
better serve survivors,
and offers the following
disaster preparedness
tips:
Identify what your
operation needs to
do to protect it-
self in the
face of a ..
natural "
disaster.
Even if ,
you don't N 4
own the
building
where you .
do business:
take steps to pro-
tect your assets.
Determine what pro-
duction machinery, com-
puters and other essential
equipment is needed to
keep your business open.
Store extra supplies off-
site, and make a plan for a
temporary location if
your company is forced to
relocate after the disaster.
Find escape routes
from the business and es-
tablish meeting places.


records, and customer
data on computer hard
drives, and store the
records at an off-site loca-
tion.
Protect your property
from wind damage. In-
stall impact-resistant
windows and door sys-
tems, or plywood shut-
ters. Hire a professional
to evaluate your roof to
make sure it can weather
a major storm.
Develop a post-disas-
ter communications
strategy. Keep current
phone numbers for your


suppliers, employees,
customers, utility compa-
nies, local media and
emergency agencies. For
long-term recovery, the
SBA provides various
types of loans for busi-
nesses of all sizes, home-
owners and renters in
the event of a disaster.
More preparedness
tips for businesses,
homeowners and renters'
are available on the
SBA's Web site at

ness."


Hurricane



Safety Tips



Hurricane Season

Sis June l-Nov. 30.


But if you've decided to ride the storm out at home,
take note of these survival tips.

Monitor water levels in your neighborhood. This is your quickest
signal to move to high points in your house or to evacuate to
higher ground.
Listen for tornadoes. Tornadoes often lead the way in a tropical
storm.
Get some rest. If at all possible, sleep in shifts so everyone is rested
if the time comes to evacuate.
If you are in the middle of a hurricane, STAY PUT until the storm

passes. If you must leave your house for an emergency, use a large,
heavy vehicle, drive slowly, be alert and don't go very far.


For more safety information on hurricanes, please call the

I. National Weather Service Hotline at 1-800-000-0000.


Make sure everyone un-
derstands the emergency
plan before the storm
hits. Designate a contact
person to communicate
with other employees,
customers and vendors.
Prepare for utility
disruptions that are vital
to your company's daily
operations, and identify
backup options, such as
portable generators.
Review your insur-
ance coverage to make
sure you under-
- stand what is
~- not covered.
Most poli-
\ cies 'don't
cover flood
S,. damage.
S * Pur-
chase flood
insurance.
The National
Flood Insur-
ance Program,
provides coverage to
property owners. Go to
the NFIP Web site at
www.floodsmart.gov.
Consider business
interruption insurance. It
covers operating expens-,
es, such as utilities, and
compensates you for the.
income lost after a tempo-
rary closure.
Make backup copies
of all tax, accounting,
payroll and production

"This is awesome,"
yelled D.J. Hutchinson as
he beat his djembe.
For the second year,
sixth grade students in
Mrs. Audrey James' geog-
raphy classes culminated
their study of the Eastern
Hemisphere, with a drum
circle. The workshop was
facilitated by Paralounge
Drum Circle founder Clint
Tipton, and member Mac
James.
Drumming is used in
rituals and celebrations,
as well as a form of com-
munication among indige-
nous people around the
world. Students learned
about different drums;
where they are from, how
they are made, when they
are used, and how they are
played. Students were
guided into rhythms be-

Madison Academy's Board of Directors challenged
sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students this year with an
essay contest. The topic for this year's essay was "Madison
County is the Place to Be." Each student in sixth through
eighth grades wrote an essay and submitted it for the con-
test.

Madison Academy
First place Winner
Sixth Grade -
Madison County is a little town with a lot of love.
Everyone I have ever met from or in Madison is so
loving and caring for the others around them. I be-
lieve the things that keep everyone so close are all the
things Madison has to do! It has the recreation park.
the town park. little shops, and great restaurants.
The Madison Recreation Park is where most of
the people spend their time from early April to late
May. So many people love to play ball! Not all the kids
have to play ball at the recreating park though. There
is a new skate park and playground there too. Not
only are the kids having a great time but also the
adults. There are many people to talk to and meet. It's
always a great time there.
The town park is also a great place to go if you
want to relax. There is a pavilion in the middle of the
park. which is a great place to have a picnic. If you
don't want to have a picnic you can walk over to the
lovely fountain, which has names of people from
Madison engraved in it. If you want to learn a little
about Madison's history, there is a monument that
tells the names of Madison's founding fathers.
In downtown Madison there are so many shops
that are excellent for all your needs. If you drive
straight down Base Street. you'll come to Madison
Sporting Goods and Pawn Shop. It sells hunting, fish-
ing, and sports supplies. It supplies the Madison
Recreation Park with the uniforms for baseball and
softball. Next you'll come to Wally's. His shop sells
fishing, hunting, and gardening supplies. Across the
street is the Madison Florist Shop. It has a beautiful
selection of almost any kind of flowers.
My favorite part of Madison is its restaurants. Its
fast-food restaurants are McDonalds. K.F.C. and Son-
ic. It also has four sit down and eat restaurants-Food
for Thought. Ken's. Oneal's. and Pizza Hut.
All of these things make Madison the place to be.
If you are looking for somewhere to move to. you
know where to come. Madison County!

up. We also have the street dance where everyone
comes and enjoys a night of socializing and dancing.
When it is time for the Homecoming football game, we
celebrate with a Homecoming parade. These are the
times we cherish the most; the times that we come to-
gether.
The people in Madison County are neighborly
people. When someone is sick and needs an operation,
we have a fundraiser to help them pay for the opera-
tion. If someone needs his or her grass mowed, then
there is somebody there to do it. When a new baby is
born into a family, people bring food and presents to
the family. No matter what happens, whether it be
good or bad, the loving people of Madison County are
there by your side.
We have many different schools in Madison Coun-
ty We support them all. When there is a football game,
people come by the dozens to watch 'and cheer the
players on. When the bands need to raise money for a
trip or competition, people are there to help. When it
is time for graduation, many people are needed and
many people are there to help. Their actions show
that the people of Madison County care about our
schools.

er. We have warm, loving people. We also have an ex-

Imagine a small town with lush green forests.
lear beautiful skies, and nice happy people.
Odds are that you are wishing you lived in a
place like this. Well, I have good news for you then
because I know a place just like this! It called Madi-
on.
I believe Madison is such a likeable town be-
ause it is so small. My friends and I often joke
about how small Madison is by saying, "I'll meet you
at the stop light!" because we only have three of
hem. Another thing I like about Madison being so
mall is that everybody knows everybody.
Between my brother, my dad, and me, we know
most everyone in town. There are always a lot of
relatives nearby too. I can hardly walk down the
street without someone asking me how the family is
loing.
Madison is a great place to live because of its lo-
ation. Madison is located along a lot of important
)laces. You can easily and quickly run to Tallahas-
ee or Valdosta and back in a short amount of time.
'hen if you want to cool off or run your boat, you
an take a quick drive to Blue Springs. Cherry Lake,
xr the Suwannee River. Madison also has Interstate
0 running right through it.
One of the best reasons to be in Madison is the
ood land. The soil in Madison is fertile and perfect
or agricultural means, such as growing fruits and
vegetables or raising livestock.
There are also many forests in the area allowing
'ikers and nature lovers to enjoy the area.
Madison also provides good land for hunting
leer. dove, turkeys, quail, and many other interest-
ng animals.
So there are a few good reasons to be in Madi-
on. Because it's a perfect little town. in a perfect
place, with perfectly kind people.
That's, why Madison is the place to be.

FWC Rescues Four Fishermen



After 27-Hour Ordeal


An offshore patrol of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
rescued four fishermen in
good condition May 9, 27
hours after their 18-foot run-
about sank in rough seas off
Hernando Beach. Rescued
were the owner and operator
of the boat, Rodney D. Rogers
of Weirsdale, Bill Broyles and
Arthur Hall of Fruitland
Park, and Carl L. Tucker of
Leesburg.
The search began after a
worried girlfriend called the
Coast Guard at about 12:30
p.m. Wednesday to report the
men were 14 hours overdue.
The Coast Guard called the
FWC to join in the search-and-


rescue mission. The only in-
formation the agencies had
was that three men had left
Homosassa at 8 p.m. Tuesday
and were expected back home
by 10 that night.
The FWC dispatched two of
its offshore patrol boats, the
Guardian and the Fincat, to
the Homosassa area to join
the effort. Another FWC offi-
cer went to Homosassa to
gather shore-side information
and locate the truck and boat
trailer.
A check of boat registra-
tions indicated the group may
have been using an 18-foot
runabout. Spearfishing gear
found in the truck and infor-
mation about bait the men


had bought led Lt. Ken
Mazzeo, skipper of the
Guardian, southward and off-
shore to a popular spearfish-
ing spot. After searching for
about an hour, Mazzeo rea-
soned that rough conditions
from the 15- to 20-knot wind
may have forced the men to
fish closer to shore.
The crew of the Guardian
picked up a radar contact 11
miles off Hernando Beach
and investigated. At 3 p.m.
they found the four fishermen
clinging to the capsized hull of
their boat in 17 feet of water
where it had overturned the
day before.
Mazzeo believes the men
were alive because of three


things they did right: they
wore their life jackets; they
stayed with the boat; and they
anchored the boat to prevent
it from drifting.
In recent years, the FWC
has acquired a fleet of off-
shore patrol vessels of vari-
ous sizes and capabilities
through cooperative agree-
ments with NOAA. Some of
the newer vessels are state-of-
the-art designs, capable of
speeds over 40 knots under
rough-sea conditions. They
also are equipped with in-
frared television monitors
and other sophisticated tools.
The .agency operates off-
shore boats in two distinct
classes. The Guardian is an


example of the Endurance
Class offshore patrol boats, ca-
pable of extended patrol in off-
shore areas in various weath-
er conditions. They range
from 45 to 85 feet in length.
These vessels have berthing
and support facilities and can
operate on multi-day missions
without returning to port.
Intermediate Class off-
shore patrol boats, like the
Fincat, are a new and develop-
ing concept within the fleet.
At around 32 feet long, they
are somewhat larger than
standard near-shore patrol
vessels. They are capable of
short-duration day patrols of
offshore areas in varying
weather conditions.


"This case is proof positive
that the FWC's Offshore Pa-
trol initiative is working to
protect Florida's citizens and
natural resources." said Capt.
Brad Williams, supervisor for
the FWC's offshore patrol
fleet.
"The FWC recommends
boaters leave a float plan with
someone on shore, in case of
emergency," Mazzeo said.
"Also, it's important to have
all the required safety equip-
ment, be aware of weather
and sea conditionsand have a
radio or cellular phone for
communication.""

Burning Swamp Will Not Stop Planned Dedication Ceremony


For New "Okefenokee Swamp" International Rate Postage Stamp


The scene depicted in
the new 2007 Scenic Amer-
ican Landscape series:
"Okefenokee Swamp" In-
ternational Rate Postage
Stamp shows a tranquil
lake enshrouded in mist,
somewhere deep within
the Okefenokee National
Wildlife Refuge. If you
could visit that same loca-
tion today, you might en-
counter a different scene
from the one captured in
Mr. Jose Azel's captivating,
photograph, used as the
basis for the new stamp.
The mist would be re-
placed with smoke, and the
water levels would be
much lower. This is a typi-
cal scene throughout the
Okefenokee Swamp today,
as the Big Turnaround
Complex' (Wildfire) contin-
ues to burn. The irony of
the situation is that if you
revisit that same lake six
months to one year from
now, you'd probably see
the exact scene captured
so eloquently in Mr. Azel's
photograph. "The Oke-
fenokee Swamp is a re-
silient, ecosystem," says
Jim Burkhart, Superviso-
ry Ranger at the Okefeno-
kee National Wildlife
Refuge, "It can heal itself
rather quickly"


As the Oke-
fenokee National
Wildlife Refuge
(NWR) and the
Folkston .Post Of-
fice prepare to
hold a special dedi-
cation ceremony.
on June 1, 2007 to
commemorate the
release of the U.S.
Postal Service's
'"American Land-
scape Series: Oke-
fenokee Swamp"
International
Postage Stamp, the
Big Turnaround
Complex wildfire "
continues to burn
-within the ,Okefenokee
NWR. Currently, the fire
has burned 264,000 acres in
the refuge, since it began
on April 16. "Fire is just as
much a part of this swamp
as water-lilies, alligators,
and the cypress tress,"
says Burkhart "Without it,
the swamp would become
drier and transform into a
forested bog, and we would
loose many of the diverse
plant and animal commu-
nities that has made the
Okefenokee a world-class
resource."
The Okefenokee
Swamp needs fire to main-
tain its ecological health


and viability Fire is Na-
ture's way of restoring, re-
juvenating, and cleansing
this ecosystem. Periodic
burns in the swamp main-
tain conditions, which sus-
tain diverse plant and ani-
mal communities. Fire in
the wetland environment
removes accumulations of
woody vegetation that
would, gradually encroach
on the prairies and open
marshes. In addition, the'
ash from the fire reverses
the acidification of waters
in the swamp and im-
proves water quality and
conditions for fish and am-
phibians.
Fire in the swamp also
benefits Visitor Use within
the Okefenokee NWR by
reducing the accumula-.
tions of encroaching plant
species such as titi, hurrah
bush, and green briar
along waterways and the
popular day-use ,'and
overnight boating trails.
Without fire and in-
tense manual labor the
refuge's network of
Wilderness boating trails
would become overgrown
and impenetrable.
The Okefenokee
Swamp is a dynamic envi-
ronment. It is always
changing. As soon as the


fire moves on. wildlife will
re-enter the burned areas,
and within days, new
growth will begin to,
sprout. Of course, charred
trees will be a reminder of
the forces that govern this
unique landscape, but in
time, even these will be re-
placed by a new crop of cy-
press, pine, and/or bay
trees. Rain will replenish
the prairies and water-
ways to create scenes once
more like the one captured
in Mr. Azel's beautiful pho-
tograph.
So what's the downside
of fire in the Okefenokee?
"There is always the dan-
ger of the fire escaping the


swamp," says
SBurkhart. "Our
'.!: primary concern
is protecting life
and public/pri-
vate property.
When it comes to
fire in the swamp,
we don't take
chances. If we
can let it burn
within the interi-
or, we will, but if
it should try to
leave the swamp,
threatening, pub-
lic or private
property. then we
'"""' will fight it ag-
gressively." --
Even as smoke clouds
billow into the sky, life in
the Okefenokee Swamp
will continue just as it has
for thousands of years. In
honor of this unique
American landscape, both
the Nationfal Wildlife
Refuge System and the U.S.
Postal, Service will cele-
brate this and other
unique American land-
scapes through the special
dedication: ceremony for
the release of the Okefeno-
kee Swamp international
rate postage stamp. The
ceremony, which is open to
the public, will begin at
9:00am in front of the U.S.

How To Write A Resume
By Ashley Bell
Greene Publishing, Inc.

During the search of a new job, it is signifi-
cant to have a resume prepared. Every resume
should contain a heading, objective or qualifica-
tions summary, work experience, education, and
skills.
The heading will need to include a full
name, contact information, and email address. Con-
tact information includes phone numbers, fax num-
bers and cell phone numbers. An email address
should be a generic one (i.e.
JaneDoe245@website.com not something akin to
sugapie75@website.com) and if a URL is provided it
should only include a portfolio of past work not per-
sonal information or information on side jobs.
The objective or qualifications summary is
the core section of the resume. If you have work ex-
perience in the field for which is being applied, then
the qualifications should be stressed in the summa-
ry. Include facts and experience in the summary,
while steering clear of opinions and other insub-
stantial, irrelevant information. On the other
hand, if you are not quite qualified for the position
in which you are applying for, use the objective to
express why you should be hired for the job.
Each employer looks for different kinds of
education. In the education section include all de-
grees and awards received and any job training you
have received for previous jobs. Doing so will con-
vey that you are open to learning and improving
your skills.
In the work experience section, start from
your most recent work experience and include all
related work experience to the job you are applying
for, no matter how old the experience is. Remember
to add the date of the beginning and ending of each
job. If you have several job changes, explain why
(i.e. contract job, relocation, etc.). Always avoid
blaming the employer or the type of job for the end-
ing of the job.
The final section is the skills section. Incor-
porate all the skills you have that will be required
for the job; skills such as knowledge of computer
software, organizational capabilities, business
savvy, or any other relevant skill such as bookkeep-
ing, accounting, data entry, typing, etc.
