School Lunch Prices

Remain Steady
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Good news for parents came at the
Madison County School Board meeting
on Tuesday, August 21, as the board vot-
ed to keep school lunch prices the same.
At the same meeting, the Board voted
to approve a salary schedule for school
personnel, raising each person up a step
on the step schedule, plus adding three-
percent to their salaries.
The board carried over a decision on
a contract with Coca-Cola to provide soft
drinks for school functions until the
next board meeting. This will give Tom
Reeves, School Board attorney, a chance
to review the contract.
School zone and district transfers
were also approved, as well as the
board's consent agenda.

Language Lessons
Some things have a tendency to make me feel good
about life. Other things bring me down. I know that
everyone is like that. Some of the things that make me
happy, though, may be things others don't care about.
One thing that makes me happy that I think should
make everyone happy is seeing young people showing
respect and honor.to adults.
I was at the Wal-Mart in Live Oak a few weeks ago
with my sister Abbie, my father, and my brother, Dan-
ny Three teenage girls, who go to our church, went out
of their way to come and speak to Abbie. It gave me a
warm feeling inside that these girls would come and
speak with Abbie.
I am proud of the youth at our church, and at how
much they have brought Abbie out of her shell in re-
cent months. Some of the girls came to our house to
help decorate Abbie's bedroom and some of help Abbie
from the youth class into the church.
As many of you know, Abbie is mentally challenged,
but when hanging around the girls like Mary, Erika,
Kelsi, Tiffany, Bethany, Rebecca, Kendall, etc., she
seems to have a gleam in her eye. I know that they are
helping her, and I know that Abbie is helping them.
Somehow, they have bridged a gap. Abbie (who rarely.
ever speaks) and they speak the same language. Doing
this, they show her the respect she deserves and she
shows them respect because they have earned it by be-
ing respectful.
I know that some adults, myself included, have a ten-
dency to sometimes criticize an action by a teenager or
a child in our church. My preacher pointed out the oth-
er night, when someone mentioned children tearing
things up, that you cannot have ministry without mess
and that we all need to reach out, regardless of what
happens. Maybe one way we could do it is to take lan-
guage lessons from Abbie, the teenagers, the children,
our neighbors, our enemies and anyone else we may be
prone to ignore.
We are never too old or too young to learn something
nevw, when we learn to speak a new language.

Lee Council Member Says "Sensible" .
To Not Release Unapproved Minutes


Jacob, in your recent report about the Lee Town
Council, you seem to be accusing the members of delib-
erately breaking the Sunshine Law. Though'I was ab-
sent from that particular meeting, I believe I would
have agreed with Doug it just seems sensible that our
minutes should not be released until we approved
them. If they were, and there were errors, then not
only we but you would probably be in hot water for al-
lowing false information to be given to the public who
of course always "have the right to know"! But do they
have the right to know false information which unfor-
tunately does sometimes get published. We are not
lawyers that's why we have Bailey who was out of
town that evening so was unable to guide us on this
particular matter.
So, as you have gone to such lengths to castigate the
Lee Town Council and explain to what lengths to which
you had to go to obtain records "to which you had a
right," then I feel I have the right to castigate you in re-
turn if you or your reporter attended our meetings in
person, then you could be assured of getting your facts
from 'the horse's mouth' and would not have to ask
Cheryl, who is entirely too busy taking care of the
town's work, to do your job for you.
I know you're overworked and your health is not
good for you've often told us so and I'm sorry I really
am. But may I make a suggestion? Now that you're the
editor for which I've already congratulated you -
learn to delegate and have someone cover our meet-
ings as you should. I know I've been an editor!

Few people have jobs that are per-
formed solo, with no supporting cast.
From professional athletes to office
workers gathered around a water cooler,
there is a kinship to others who have the
same goals and charges.
Many jobs, even careers,. are separat-
ed from personal lives and do not define
people as individualsiWhen the workday
whistle blows, tasks are left on the table
or shoved in a briefcase until the next.
day
But when getting dressed for work in-
cludes draping a bulletproof vest over
your heart, you tend to view things a bit
differently
Many people may view the "blue wall
of silence" as some unwritten but orga-
nized plan among law-enforcement offi-
cers that allows us to act with impunity,.
knowing our co-workers will turn their
head to any misdeeds and questionable
actions.
Well, I attest that there is no sinister
plot among officers to cover up crimes
committed by fellow crime- fighters.,
What does exist is a natural bond that
develops whenever the person next to
you may be the deciding factor in
whether at the end of the day you go
home to family, or to the local morgue.
Because police officers interact daily
with strangers who may not have good
intentions, wariness becomes ingrained.
When surrounded and alone in harm's
way, nothing is more welcome than spy-
ing another uniform and badge rushing
in to help.
The average citizen can-
not understand the inner
strength it takes to bury
horrendous acts perpetrated
by monsters, only to have
them resurface in the mid-
dle of the night; tangled up How
in sweat-soaked sheets. So-
lace,and understanding is
often found only among oth-
er officers.
When someone seeks a
career in law enforcement,
they must realize it will be- -
come who they are. Just like
a doctor, we are always in' "c -
character and expected to
respond whenever a prob-
lem arises in our presence.
The one thing all officers
understand is that we are
hated until we are needed.
Every action taken may be
scrutinized and possibly
filmed for the record. Arrest

combative suspect or inmate

You're Welcome; Come On In
My back door is clean now. For a while, it just got
messier and messier. The storm door was murky with
fingerprints and dust; the wood door was hip-deep in
cob webs; the frame hung with dead bug bodies and
grime. You get the picture.
One day during the summer, I returned home from
an outing and realized that the entrance to my home
looked like The Spider Lady lived there. So I deter-
mined to do something about it. My cousin disassem-
bled the storm door, and I scrubbed all the parts till
they sparkled. A student helped me with all the little
windows in the wood door, and we washed and re-hung
the curtain. This project took nearly three days, but it
was worth it. The next morning when I opened the
wood door, I could see clear to the neighbor's yard! Hal-
lelujah!
The clean entrance has become more important as
.time has passed. I feel like I am making people more
welcome. You know some homes where you feel wel-
come right away, and others where you feel like a visi-
tor all the time. Well, I hope mine is now a place where

Family Papers Can Travel
Hurricane season is starting to churn up a few dis-
turbances and although Hurricane Dean is not a threat
to the US coast, it's a reminder that preparation takes
place in advance. I've shared information in the past
about making your family papers ready for emergency
evacuation, but its important enough that you hear it
again.
Most Floridians are good about stocking up on a
food supply and first aid kits. While you are in this
preparation mode, think about an "on the go" kit of
important family records. Knowing where your fami-
ly's records and valuable documents are and being able
to pick them up and take with you, if you must evacu-
ate, can save valuable time.
For your "on the go" papers you will want a packet,
folder, brief case or other carrying case for your docu-
ments. Place documents in this case in a secure, but
easily a6cessed location in you home. Then if you
need to evacuate, important documents that need to go
with you are in one place.
If you have access to a scanner, you may want to
scan your papers, documents, and photographs to a
computer disk. Keep the computer disk in the carry-
ing case and leave the original in the recommended
storage. You may also want to videotape the content of
your home to supplement your house hold inventory
If you use a software package to keep track of your fi-
nances keep a back-up copy with your "on the go" pa-
pers and update the back-up disk monthly.
What is considered important papers? They are
documents that you will need sometime during your
lifetime for a variety of reasons, such as a birth certifi-
cate which is used for proof of age and or citizenship
to obtain a drivers license or to go on .a cruise. Other
important papers include adoption, marriage and
death certificates, passports, deeds, leases, insurance
policies, social security records, contracts, wills, trusts,
and ownership papers.
In case of a disaster,,it would be difficult to remem-
ber or identify exactly what you lost. Valuable time
and money could be lost while you try to remember
what possessions you owned or-while trying to replace
lost documents. Therefore, it is much better to protect
valuable papers than to replace them.
"On the go papers" filed in special packet
Family records including the following or a copy of
the following:
Checking and savings account numbers
List of savings and investments including
CD's, stocks, bonds, and mutual funds
Household inventory videotape, paper copy or a
disk
List of insurance policies with name of company,
type of policy and policy number
Copy of your Will and trust documents
Titles (house, car, other property)
Certificates or a copy of birth. marriage, divorce,
death, and' adoption
Passports
List of family advisors: accountant, attorney,
banker, doctors, dentist, employer, financial adviser, in-
surance agents, religious leader, banker
Educational records

Debt and credit card records
Other special papers that would be difficult or im-
possible to replace if lost.

Hillary ClintonAndAtttel
Alltel, an Arkansas-based company, has long ties to
Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Little Rock Rose Law
Firm and has been shrouded in mystery and intrigue
since its inception.
Previously, the company was called Systematics and
was owned by Jackson Stephens, the billionaire part-
ner of Chinese agent Mochtar Riady of the infamous
Lippo Group.
In November 1999, the FBI confirmed to WND in re-
sponse to a Freedom of Information Act request that
there were "law enforcement" investigations involving
the Arkansas Rose office law firns. former employer of
Hillary Clinton, and its relationship with Alltel.
According to FBI Section Chief John M. Kelso. the
bureau could not release the records because they had
been compiled for. "law enforcement purposes."
The relationship between the Clintons and System-
atics dates back to the mid-1980s when the man who
would become chief executive officer, William Cravens,
was working for the Worthen Bank, also owned by Ri-
ady and Stephens. Mrs. Clinton and her Rose law part-
ners, Vincent Foster and Webster Hubbell, worked on
Worthen legal contracts.
Later, Cravens left Worthen and took the top posi-
tion at Systematics and brought its legal work to the
Rose law firm. Systematics would go on to develop. the
secret computer "Clipper" chip capable of bugging
every phone, fax and e-mail transmission in America.
Cravens was succeeded by Charles Wilbourne
Miller, who became the CEO of Alltel. On Nov. 17, 1998,
Miller, 63, was found dead of a gunshot wound to the
head in a shallow pit about 300 yards from his ranch
house near Little Rock.
There was one other high-profile "suicide" among
the inner circle involved with the "Clipper" chip pro-
ject Foster, who attended critical National Security
Agency planning meetings on the Clipper chip project,
along with then-Associate Attorney General Hubbell,
Attorney General Janet
Reno and then-White
md The Town House Counsel Bernard.

On her front porch the old lady sat
Softly she rocked in her well worn chair.
Tho wrinkled the face and white the hair
Those blue eyes twinkled and soft lips smiled
As she watched the scampering squirrels at play,
The cute little wrens and quarrelsome jay
A beautiful pair of cardinals flew
From the huge old oak into her view
And the old lady thanked her God above
For all these blessings and for His love
She thanked him for her many years of life
For leading her thru the toil and strife
She thanked Him for all her family and friends
For the love which a loving family sends -
As she often dreams in the old porch swing
A tear drops softly from remembering
Her happy children who so often had swung
With cries of joy on the swing which hung
From the gnarled branch of the huge oak tree
She will never forget she'll always remember
The joys of summer and lovely September
Before comes the fall and harvesting time
And soon there is winter, so long and so cold
But she has no fear of growing so old
For life has been filled with riches untold
No drabness for her just her Shepherd's fold.

Emergency Contact Information


Available On Identification Cards


By Ashley Bell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On December 7, 2005 Tiffiany Olson was in a terrible
accident. Tiffiany sustained fatal injuries when the
motorcycle she was a passenger on collided with anoth-
er vehicle. Her mother, Christine Olson, was not noti-
fied of the accident for several hours.
After the death of her daughter, Mrs. Olson, with the
assistance of State Representative Bill Galvano from
Bradenton, District 68, began pushing for emergency
information to be added to a person's driver's license to
quicken the notification of family members.
Due to the space limitations on a license, Mrs. Olson
and Rep. Galvano contacted the Department of High-
way Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) to have the
information included in the D.A.VI.D. (Driver And Ve-
hicle Information Database) system. The D.A.VI.D. is a
secured database used by most law enforcement agen-
cies in the State of Florida.
The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehi-
cles encourages citizens with an identification card or
Driver's License to go online at
http://www.hsmv.state.fl.us and make emergency con-
tact information available to law enforcement in case


of an accident or additional emergency situation.
To register the emergency contact information:
Locate the Online Services menu on the home
page of the Florida Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles.
Select Emergency Contact Information.
Select Continue to Website to enter your
Emergency Contact Information.
Enter the current Florida Driver License or,
Florida Identification Card number along with
birth date.
Enter information of Primary and Secondary
Emergency Contact Information:
Name, Relationship, Address, and Phone numbers.

Registering information into the database will allow
law enforcement to get in touch with emergency con-'
tacts faster.


Law Enforcement Accessorizes Their Rides With Electronics


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Civilians have always been cu-
rious about just what nifty gad- ___
gets and surprises a law enforce- *
ment vehicle holds within its
shell. While there are a few occa-
sional differences, police depart-
ments, sheriff's departments, and
highway patrol units typically :, '
have the same electronic doodads.
Standard on all law enforce-
ment vehicles is a radio. The ra-
dio keeps the officer in constant
contact with communications. If Radar I
the officer needs to call in backup
or find out more information, a ra-
dio is a very important piece of
equipment.,
A siren or PA. system alerts Wp \
other people of the presence of "
law enforcement. A standard
siren makes a loud noise that is
broadcast in the general vicinity ,
of, the vehicle, while,a P.A. system
allows an officer to communicate
instructions over a distance.\ .
Radar is a very important piece
-of equipment that allows law en-
forcement to calculate the speed of
a vehicle. Officers run radar to
help apprehend people who exceed
posted speed limits. I Card Reader on I
Laptop computers can be found for scanning (
in most, if not all, law enforce-
ment vehicles. The programs allow officers to "link
up" to the national or state crime information system.
Some cars even have printers along with programs that
help officers complete accident reports from the com-
fort of their own cozy vehicle. In newer cars and Flori-


Iob
driv


Sda Highway Patrol cars, a driver's
license scanner is commonplace.
The scanner works like a credit
card machine, so that officers see
a person's information just with
the slide of a card.
Some Florida Highway Patrol
cars come decked out with hand-
held tint meters, which allow an
*.officer to determine if someone's
windows are tinted too darkly.
Some cars even have cameras
that can capture video evidence.
Florida Highway Patrol cars
are equipped with special light
lipment bars that flash only red during
the day and only blue at night. A
study done by scientists, said
Trooper Brian Lundy, deter'-
mined that people see red lights
better during the day and blue
lights better at night.
Additionally, FHP units have
.,,bars of amber colored lights
across their back glass. The bars
light up in sequence so oncoming
traffic is aware of the presence
of the car. These little gizmos
don't come without a price,
Though. In past years, patrol cat
batteries have been known to die
quicker than normal because of
the overload. According to a po-
ile Data Terminal lice officer with the Madison Po-
ver's licenses. lice Department, the car's alter-
nator is what goes out now. Most
of the time, the alternator functions just fine.
Factories that deal specifically with law enforce-
ment vehicles manufacture the car to certain stan-
dards that allow it to withstand the extensive use of
electronics.

Update On Jonathan Goley
On behalf of my family, and especially Jonathan, I
would like to express our gratitude for the outpouring
of support and prayers we have received from the
Madison County Community. Having just moved here,
only a few years ago, our family was immediately wel-
comed and treated as one of the family Never was that
more evident, than when our youngest, Jonathan, was
diagnosed with Gorham-Stout Disease or "Disappear-
ing Bone Disease." This disease is extremely rare and
is affecting Jonathan's jaw and teeth. It was not until
my wife, Linda, and Jonathan went to Massachusetts
General Hospital in April that he was finally diagnosed
and he started receiving treatment. Last week, our fam-
ily returned from Boston and was informed the treat-
ments are working. Jonathan's jawbone is showing
some growth! My family and I praise the Lord for this
healing! Though we are seeing progress, Jonathan still
has many more trips to Boston and Gainesville for fur-
ther treatments and evaluations, but we know the Lord
has him (Jonathan) in His care.
In light on this great
I news, I wanted not only to
W Share this with the com-
munity, but also thank all
of you for your continued
support. The people of
Madison County are truly
special. Linda and I are
extremely humbled by the
efforts, prayers, and sup-
port from all of you. God
bless you and thank you

The Goley Family:

Madison County Towing Rotation


Keeps The Wreckers Busy


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
To avoid cluttering highways or'blocking roads,
abandoned or wrecked vehicles must be towed. Typi-
cally, the job of ordering a tow falls to
Florida Highway Patrol or the Madi-
son County Sheriff's Office.
Each time there is a traffic .
crash or an abandoned vehi- /
cle, the officer asks the dis-
patcher for the next corn-
pany in rotation,
so that each com-
pany receives a
fair share. How- l :
ever, if a person
has a prefer- -
ence for a tow ____,,
company then
that company is
used, and it does
not lose its place in the
rotation.
For example, if Ben's Towing was at the top of the
rotation list, and a person requested to use their com-
pany specifically, Ben's Towing will still remain at
the top of the list.


STo be placed on the list, tow companies must have
a certain amount of insurance coverage. In Madison,
as long as a company is on the rotation for the Flori-.
da Highway Patrol, they're eligible for the Sheriff's
Office rotation. Typically, to remain
on the rotation, tow companies must
have at least a three hundred thousand
dollar policy Some companies choose to'
have more coverage,
which serves as
added protection
against liability.
Once a vehicle
is towed, the
/ owner is responsi-
Sble for paying any
fees charged by the
company If the
owner does not pay
the fees, the vehicle
will not be released..,
Tow companies used in
Madison County are Stewart's Wrecker Service,.
Jimmie's Firestone, Ben's Towing, and Monticello
Towing. The companies are inspected rigorously by
Florida Highway Patrol to ensure that they remaiiiin
compliance with the safety precautions and insur-
ance policies required.

Keeping Cool During


The Summer Sizzler


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
With temperatures
reaching 100 degrees dur-
ing this summer scorcher.
it's important to know how
to keep cool. Sometimes.
shorts and a t-shirt don't
cut it! The actual tempera-
ture may be around 97 de-
grees at peak, but the heat
index makes it feel ten de-
grees hotter, cashing in at
a whopping 107 degree
heat index.
Approximately 4.000
people die from exposure
to extreme heat each year.
The most susceptible to
death by heat? The elder
and the infant. Health pro-
fessionals recommend
loose fitting, thin clothes
in light colors. This keeps
the air flowing between
the clothes and body. keeps
the airflow through
clothes good, and keeps
the clothing from absorb-
ing too much heat.
A tried and true method
to beat the summer heat is
a swamp cooler. For fami-
lies without air-condition-
ing as so many are, an old
oscillating fan (or those
new tower fans) with a
bowl of ice in front of it
keeps the air nice,and
cool. The idea is to aim
the airflow over the top of
the ice. The cool air picks
up even cooler vapors ris-
ing from the ice and car-
ries it across the room. Be
sure to open a few win-
dows for ventilation to
keep from creating a con-
vection oven.
Sports doctors and fami-
ly physicians recommend
drinking at least two liters
of water every hour if.
,working outdoors. The .
helps replenish the body's
hydration and to prevent
heat stroke or heat exhaus-
tion.
One resounding state-
ment made by medical ex-
perts is to steer clear of
caffeinated or alcoholic
beverages in the heat, and
to avoid excessive con-
sumption of carbohy-
drates. Fresh fruits and
veggies, that hold plenty of
water naturally, and crys-
tal clear water fight dehy-
dration just as well as
sports drinks.
Noon temperatures feel
like 108 degrees, according
to the Weather Channel.
People should stay in-
doors as much as possible,
and be sure if going out-
side to wear sunscreen.
Jim Stanley, Emergency
Management Director for
Madison County comment-
ed that people who work
outside should take as
many air-conditioned
breaks as possible. Be-
cause there isn't a breeze
most of the time, people
get hot and tend to stay
hot. This increases the
risk for heat stroke. It's
important for people to
drink plenty of water to
keep cool!
The National Weather
Service shows three heat
advisories during extreme
temperatures. A Heat
Warning means that life-
threatening heat is occur-
ring in an imminent or
high likelihood. A Heat
Advisory means that high
and potentially dangerous
values of heat are occur-
ring. Finally, the lowest
heat advisory is a Heat
Watch. This means that
excessive heat is possible
in a one or two day period.
Parents should never
leave children in a parked
car, especially during sum-
mer months. Tempera-
tures inside the enclosed
box-like atmosphere can
reach 140 to 150 degrees,
causing severe brain dam-
age or death after only
small amounts of time.


No matter how short the
errand, do not leave chil-
dren in a parked vehicle.
Approximately 30 children


die each year due to negli-
gence. Any violators will
be prosecuted to the full
extent of the law.
A few songs to keep cool'
during the siunmer heat
wave include.
Ice Ice Baby Van ila Ice-
Who could forget the song
stylings of the Caucasian
rapper in his catchy, cool
tune?
Cold As Ice Foreigner-
Spectacular favorite keeps
anyone nice and chilly
during the summer.
Cool Westside Story -
This song, from the hit
musical cools even the
hottest temperatures
Lemonade Beck -
There's nothing like a nice
refreshing sip of lemonade
to beat the heat.
Call Me The Breeze
Lynyrd Skynyrd Become
the air, breathe, and cool
yourself.
Winter Wonderland
Bing Crosby It's really a
matter of mind over mat-
tel; and thinking of snowy
"scapes will keep the mer-
cury falling.
MILKSLHA1E Kelis -
Head on over to the near-
est burger joint and sip on
an icy milkshake!
Hot In Henre Nelly This
song might have said it
best, but if you become the
heat. you can conquer it.
Escape(The Pina Colada
Song) -Rupert Holmes I
like pina coladas, and get-
ting caught in the rain -
enough said.
I Go Suwinning Peter
Gabriel- A long dip in the
pool will cool off anybody
in the scorching heat.

sociation of Blacks in Criminal Justice (NABCJ) 34th
annual conference. The theme for this year's conven-,
tion was "Criminal Justice- Are we crossing over or
are we turning back?"
Jamarien P Moore is originally from Madison. He is
the son of Amy J. Brasby and Theodore R. Brasby He
currently resides in Orlando, where he is a tenth grad-
er at West Orange High School. He is a member of
New Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church,
where the Reverend Henry L. Postell, II is Senior Pas-
tor. Jamarien was honored to travel to Buffalo, New

rF-a, .e : -' .. 1 < r..--,, -, .- ~ ..


York where he attended various educational work-
shops during the conference.
The first session was called "Pen or Pencil." It fo-
cused upon Freedom of Choice for youth and interven-
tion for Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC), or
re-entry. This has been the link between low academic
achievements and school suspensions, which were tar-
geted as one of the primary focus areas for NABCJ.
This program has been a documented entry into the
Juvenile and the Criminal Justice System. This initia-
tive has been designed to influence young people to
make positive choices, targeting grade five and higher.
-The second session was "Planning for Success and
Empowered to Change," which revolved around goal
setting and mot ivation towards success. These excel-
lent workshops were for professionals and community
personnel who are interested in faith based pro-
!'',.. grams or interested in discussing sounds doc-
trine that will provide a new prospective on
their role in society
The third session was "Your Life, Your
Choice. and Your Coach." All sessions were
great models toward having a successful life
and prosperous future. Students must prepare
for the success they expect, get involved, have
a positive attitude, stand for something, dis-
play an ability to change or accept change, use
c criticism carefully, persevere, and show in-
tegrity. .
Jamarien had an opportunity to sing for a
large audience at the Adams Mark Hotel in
Buffalo, New York. Reverend Al Sharpton
President of the National Action Network
(NAN) was in the audience. Sharpton opened
the NABCJ convention with some warming and power-
ful words of inspiration targeting the African-
American communities. He made the powerful state-
ment, "Our young people need to realize that all po-
lice are not bad and police need to understand that
all young people are not bad," during the conven-
tion.
"Everyone can be great because anyone can serve
positive to make a difference in our community, by
keeping the dreams and visions ALIVE!" Reverend
Al Sharpton told Jamarien.

ter receiving information that he was in possession of
several firearms. These firearms were recovered and an
A.T.F. agent spoke to Smith on the telephone, but Smith re-
fused to meet with law enforcement at that time. On the
morning of Wednesday, July 12,2006, Smith came to the
sheriff's office with an entourage of family members to be
interviewed. Lt. Joost subsequently interviewed Smith
and placed him under arrest for Dealing In Stolen Proper-
ty and Possession Of A Firearm By A Convicted Felon.
Smith was recently sentenced to 17 years in federal prison.
after being found guilty as charged.
On the afternoon of Wednesday, July 12, 2006, Lt. Joost
and Lt. DeMotsis proceeded to Johnson's residence in
Madison to pursue other investigative leads. During an
initial interview by Lt. Joost, Johnson appeared deceptive.
During a search of a residence next door, Lt. Joost located,
and seized, a Ruger .22 caliber pistol with a silencer, a
9mm Ruger pistol, ammunition and a t-shirt. On the
evening of Wednesday, July 12, 2006, Johnson agreed to a
second interview with Lt. Joost. During that interview,
Johnson provided inconsistent stories on how he acquired
the two firearms. One version involved a mysterious indi-
vidual placing a handgun to his head and forcing him to
purchase the mint condition suppresses .22 Ruger pistol,
valued at $795, for $10 and the mint condition 9mm Ruger
pistol, valued at $520, for $50. Lt. Joost was subsequently

Happenings At

Madison First Baptist Church
By Nell Dobbs
A beautiful multi-colored arrangement was provided Sunday
in honor of Buck Driggers on his 72nd birthday Wednesday, Au-
gust 22, by his loving family and he wasn't even able to be in ser-
vice. Special prayers for him and for all of their family Amen!
Brother Heard's heart is one of thankfulness for God's mer-
cies because His coinpassion's do not fail and His mercies are
new every morning and His faithfulness is great! This message
is from the Book of Lamentations!
Shellie Holbrook blessed us, singing "Redeemer." Very soon,
she will be leaving for Australia. We give thanks her Grandmoth-
er Holbrook is home and able to care for herself after surgery
Bern Smith gave the offertory prayer after a reading. After-
wards, Chancel Choir sang, 'Great Is Thy Faithfulness."
What challenges. What an interesting message that Dr. Bob
Mounts gave us as he spoke on the process of a Baptist church
calling a pastor. A pastor is God's gift to a church and is the
leader. He is to preach theWord-,and feed the flock. A church pas-
tor-led, congregation-goverhed, deacon-served, along with the
rest of the laity -
Church ended with the hymn, "Trust and Obey"
Those who wished to ask questions went down front. Follow-
ing that, Dr. Mount met with the deacons for lunch in the fellow-
ship hall and there was a discussion of the roles of deacons in
the church. On August 26, we will vote on new deacons. Also that
day, there will be a meting and training for AWANA, which be-
gins the Sunday after Labor Day Pray for this ministry
Congratulations to Sputter and Linda Ragans on their first
grandchild, Ty Brady Webb, born to Leigh and John on August
14. Joe and Bonnie Webb are excited about him, too. Bless these
families as they love him and train him in the way he should go.
Amen.
We pray for Preacher Jake Phillips, who had a pacemaker
Tuesday, got along well and is now at home. Pray also for Inez
Browning who is recovering from surgery; for Cheryell Thomas'
mother, who fell and,.hd a trip to the emergency room; and for
all the many, many others.
Derry Cruce is not doing well. Juanita Cruce is in Hughey
Personal Care Center. Kitty Agner is recovering from face
surgery ...,', ..
We pray comfort for the family of Benny Knight. (I know Bil-
lie better because she used to sub with us at Madison Primary
and we loved her.) Pray also'for all the other sad families, for
Mrs. Belle Davis and all her family in the death of her sister,;
Mrs. IdumaPerkins.f,
In a little pamphlet, "Angel in Your Pocket," I found this by
John Newton, which we don't really believe for we are confident
of our trust in Jesus and a home in Heaven: -
"If I ever reach Heaven,
I expect to find three wonders there.
First, to meet some Ihad not thought to see;
Second, to miss some I had expected to see there;
And, third, the greatest of all,
To find myself there."
May God bless all 2,800 Baptist churches in our state and help,
us give thanks for people who come into our lives for a reason,
for a season, for a lifetime!
Preacher Heard gave us this thought!

She was a successful business owner, but
as she says, one who "only cared about money"
Her undiagnosed illness gave way to a "spiritual
encounter with the Lord."
She asked God to give her a second chance at
life, promising to heed His call and perform what-
ever tasks He set forth for her. "So I was given a

"Americans are living below the poverty line, but
we're spending $70 million a month in Iraq," Den-
mark commented in an April interview.
She plans to have walked through 49 states by
2010, collecting signatures as she walks, so that;
when she ties up the journey in Washington D.C.,
Denmark can present more than one million sig-
natures to members of Congress calling for an,
end to poverty and homelessness.
Denmark has been walking for over six years.
She began in Dayton, Ohio; she walked across the

Along the way, Denmark picked up LaTonya

Denmark's testimony at a church in South Car-

lahassee. She joined Denmark about six weeks
ago as Road Manager.
Denmark has 33 states to go, but she already
has 200,000 signatures on her petition that just
began this year. She's also gone through about
15 pairs of tennis shoes in her 77 months of
walking. Denmark and her crew wear bright
orange on her journey to be seen, and they
carry the American Flag, because the focus
should be at home. .

If you've ever sold a
home, you're probably fa-
miliar with the concept of
home staging. Home stag-
ing is the art of preparing
a home so that it will sell
fast and for the right price.
This may entail anything
from rearranging furni-
ture and eliminating clut-
ter to assisting with re-

pairs and making recom-
mendations to boost the
home's curb appeal. While
some sellers may choose to
stage their homes them-
selves, others will hire a
professional home stager.
If you opt to go this route,
make sure you. choose the
right pro for you.'
. Hiring a professional
home stager is no different
than hiring an interior de-
signer. You should begin
by asking for referrals.
Check with friends and,
relatives and with your
real estate agent. Larger
real estate companies may
have worked with profes-
sional home services and
may be able to provide you
with a list of names:
Once you have several
names in hand, start
checking them out. Find
out from the Better Busi-
ness Bureau if any com-
plaints have'been lodged


against them. Make an ap-
pointment and ask to see
photos of their work. Find
out how quickly the
homes they staged sold
and ask for a list of refer-
rals, so you can talk to
others who have used
their services. Finally, get
an estimate. Some profes-
sional home stagers
charge by the hour, while
others charge a flat fee.
The higher the estimate,
the more involved the
staging may be. While..
many professional stagers
will just work with what,
you have, some will clear
out everything and bring
in rental furniture, requir-
ing you to pay the costs of
renting a storage unit and
furniture.
After you've been given
an estimate, make some
calculations. As a rule. the
higher the asking price of
your home, the more you


can afford to spend for the
services of a professional
home stager. If you're ask-
ing less than $200,000 for
your home, you may want
to go with a lower esti-
mate, whereas if you're
asking for a higher price,
you may want to go with a
higher estimate. Keep in
mind the time factor as
well. If your home has
been sitting on the market
over a year, you may want
to go with the more expen-
sive professional stager
who has a reputation for
producing immediate
sales.
Choosing the right pro-
fessional home stager
takes some work, but it's
worth it. Not only will it
help you sell your home
fast, but it could boost the
asking price of your home
and give you more money
to spend on your new
home.


Follow The Line


By Ronda Addy-
Moving is not something most of us,
want to do. But for whatever reason, the
time has come time for you to move.
There are certain things you know you
have to do, but you could use some help
in determining when they need to be
done. Here's a moving timeline that will
help. .
Six weeks before moving day If you
are moving because of a job transfer,
find out what expenses the company is
responsible for and what expenses you
are responsible for. Start searching for a
moving company Get estimates from at
least four companies. Ask around for '
recommendations. Take an inventory of
-your possessions and decide what you
want to keep and what you want to get
rid of. Make a list of everyone who
needs to be notified of the move-rela-
tives, friends, doctors, vets, schools,
banks, magazines, etc. Get a change-of-
address kit from the post office. Start us-
ing up perishable items, like frozen '
foods and cleaning supplies, that won't
move well. .
Five weeks before moving day Select
the mover and make arrangements for
moving day Find out from your insur-
ance company what belongings of yours
are covered and from the moving com-
pany what its insurance covers. The ba-
sic insurance of most moving compa-
nies is by the pound. This will not be,
enough, so find out what other types in-
surance they offer. Have your more ex-
pensive items appraised before the ,
move. Start notifying schools, dentists,
vets and doctors about the move and get
copies of all your important records.
Send out change-of-address forms, espe-
cially to magazines.
Four weeks before moving day Start
getting rid of all unwanted items. Col-
lect boxes for packing, along with pack-
ing material, tape and markers for writ-
ing on each box where the contents go.
Now is a good time to start packing any.
nonessential stuff. Look in the garage,
attic and other storage areas and pack
whatever you can there. Check with the

post office to make sure they have re-
ceived your change-of-address card.
Two weeks before moving day.
Arrange to have the utilities and phone
shut off or transferred the day after the
move. Make arrangements to have the
utilities and phones turned on at the
new house on moving day
One week before moving day Get all
your important items out of the safety
deposit box. Keep them with you when
moving. Get all prescriptions refilled.,
Confirm the moving date and time with
the movers. Defrost and clean the refrig-
erator. Start packing everything but
whvbat you will need up to moving day
Prepare snow blowers, lawn mowers and
the like by draining the oil and gas. Hire
a professional to empty and seal
propane tanks. Moving companies won't
take any paint, flammables or chemi-
cals, so properly dispose of them. They
also won't take plants.
On moving day. Make sure there is
someone around to supervise the
movers. Give the house a final look to
ensure nothing has been left behind.
Carefully check the bill of lading and
make sure the movers have a phone
number at which to reach you. Lock all
the doors and windows, set the thermo-
stat on low and shut off all appliances
left behind. If you haven't sold the
house, make sure someone has the keys
to it. Let the local police know the house
will be vacant. : ;
On move-in day. Make sure someone
is there before the movers arrive who
can direct the movers where to put
everything. Make sure the movers place
the boxes out of the way Check that the
phone and utilities have been turned on.
Have the payment for the movers on
hand, which they will want before they
begin unloading. Check for any dam-
aged items. Make sure all boxes, and fur-
niture are accounted for before signing
the bill of lading.
There is enough stress involved in
moving without having mass confusion
added to the mix. Following a timeline
just may help eliminate some of the con-
fusion and make the move easier.

Madison Academy


Finishing Many Renovations


. By Ashley Bell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison Academy faculty, staff,
parents, and supporters recently partici-
pated in renovations of the campus. To-
gether, they have worked to better serve
and educate the students and parents of
Madison Academy
Newly added is the "Walk of Fame,"
as the faculty is calling it. The "Walk of
Fame" is a brick walkway that has
names inscribed in the bricks of alumni,
students, faculty, and staff. Patrons are
able to purchase or donate a brick in
honor of an alumni, teacher, or student.
The walkway is still being extended, so
bricks are still on sale. For more infor-
mation, contact the- school's front office.
Technology has swept the campus of
Madison Academy T1 lines have been in-
stalled for faster Internet access; 25 new
Dell computers were purchased; 15 used
Dell computers were donated by NFCC;
two Smart Boards are in use in Janna
Barrs and JerriAnn Gray's rooms; and a
computerized cataloging system has
been installed in the library for the
books. Also Accelerated Reader will now
be available to the students.


According to Lucas Waring of Odi-
orne Insurance, there was no formal
Physical Education program at Madison
Academy due to the limitations of the
sports field. The idea of revamping the
field was thought by all, but Lucas War-
ing and Jay Johnson spearheaded the
project. The sports field was leveled, ir-
rigation installed for a sprinkler system,
sod rolls put down, and a fence put up
around the field. The size of the field
from the home plate to the center is 250
ft., the perfect size for any sport.
"This field would not have been possi-
ble without the generous donations of
time, equipment, labor, and financial
support from all of those involved," said
Waring. Now the students will be able to
enjoy playing flag-football, soccer, soft-
ball, baseball, and other sports. Eventu-
ally bleachers will be added to, the field,
among other things that are being dis-
cussed.
The gym walls and floors were paint-
ed, the K building has a new septic drain
field, the Pre-K playground was renovat-
ed, piped water for coolers in the gym,
and irrigation, sod, and plants were in-
stalled for the front of the school.

Chronic Wasting Disease

Not Detected In Florida's

Deer Herd
After extensive
testing, the Flori-
da Fish and
Wildlife Conser-
vation Comrnmis-
sion (FWC) has
not found any ev-
idence of chi on ic "
wasting disease
(CWD) in the
state's white-tailed deer population.
The FWC tested 636 free-ranging deer during the past
year and more than 3,000 deer during the past five years,
with no CWD-positive results.
FWC's wildlife veterinarian Dr. Mark Cunningham
said, "While we can never say that Florida is entirely free
of the disease without testing every deer, this sample size
gives us very high confidence that if CWD is present in
Florida, it is at low levels. However, even low numbers of
CWD-positive deer would be cause for concern, so we,
plan to continue testing for the foreseeable future."
CWD is a contagious neurological disease that has
been found in captive and wild herds of mule deer, white-
tailed deer and Rocky Mountain elk within several Mid-
western and Western states. The disease causes degener-
ation of the brains of infected animals, resulting in ema-
ciation, abnormal behavior, loss of bodily functions and
death.
Thus far, no Southeastern states, including Florida,
have been hit by the deer disease.
To reduce the chances of CWD turning up in Florida,
the state prohibits importing carcasses of any species of
deer, elk or moose from 14 states and two Canadian
provinces where CWD has been detected.
States and provinces currently with CWD include New
Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, Minnesota,
Oklahoma, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wiscon-
sin, Illinois, New York, West Virginia, and Alberta and
Saskatchewan, Canada. Visit the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture's web site at
www.aphis.usda.gov/animal health/animal diseases/cwd
for the most up-to-date CWD reporting.
"Early detection is the key to limiting the spread of the
disease, if such an outbreak should occur in Florida,"
said Deer Management Section leader Dr. Robert Vander-
hoof of the FWC's Division of Hunting arid Game Man-
agement.
Once again, this hunting season the FWC is turning to
hunters and members of the public for assistance in help-
ing monitor the state's deer herd for CWD.
"We're asking hunters to report any sightings of sickly
or scrawny-looking deer, or deer dead of unknown caus-
es," Vanderhoof said. "If you see such a deer, call toll-
free 1-866-CWD-WATCH (293-9282). Please do not handle
the deer. Wildlife biologists will respond, and if neces-
sary, collect deer tissue for testing. It's important to con-
tact us as soon as possible, because such testing must
take place within 48 hours of a deer's death to yield reli-
able results."
CWD WATCH is part of an aggressive monitoring pro-
gram to ensure CWD is not already in Florida and the
disease does not spread into this state.
There is no evidence that CWD poses a risk for hu-
mans, however, public health officials recommend avoid-
ing direct contact with any sick-looking deer or one that
has died from unknown causes.


Have you seen the television show
"Survivor?' It's one of those "reali-
ty series," where eighteen people of
diverse ages and backgrounds com-
pete against each other in chal-
lenges to be the lone survivor of the
game. The finalist still standing at
the end is the winner! While sur-
vival in the wild is a game for those
contestants, it certainly is not for
four unique wildlife species found in
Okefenokee. Unlike their television
counterparts, these "contestants"
are locked in a true struggle of sur-
vival from extinction.
In Okefenokee, there are eight
wildlife species listed either by the
federal or state governments as
threatened or endangered. A
"threatened" species is one whose
population has declined so much
that without additional protection of
both this species and its habitat, it is
likely to become endangered. An
"endangered" species is one that is
in immediate danger of becoming
extinct (gone forever). Its numbers
are very low, and it needs extraordi-
nary efforts and protections for its,:
survival.
The pine forests that are found on
the islands and surrounding up-
lands of the Okefenokee Swamp pro-
vide critical habitat for the Red-
cockaded woodpecker, Gopher tor-
toise, and the Indigo snake. The .
Red-cockaded woodpecker (RCW),
listed as federally endangered, is a
small bird with a zebra-striped back,
large white cheek patches and a
black cap on its head.
RCW's are unique among wood-
peckers in that they make their
homes inside of living trees, primar-
ily longleaf pine. Due to the work of
refuge biologists and foresters, their
numbers have increased to an esti-
mated forty Groups, with one to
three RCW's per group. Living on or
below ground is the Gopher tortoise,


a large land turtle with a high
domed.shell, powerful shovel-like
front and rear legs. Gopher tortois-
es get their name from the tunnels
they build in sandy soil, which'
many other species depend on for
protection. Listed by the State of
Georgia as threatened, they are of-
ten seen. in the warmer months
along the refuge entrance road feed-
ing on vegetation. Often sharing
tunnels with Gopher tortoises is the
Indigo snake. Growing over eight
feet in length, the Indigo snake is
North America's longest snake.
Bluish-black with a reddish or
cream-colored chin and throat, this
threatened snake used to be found
from South Carolina to Mississippi,
but today only lives in Georgia and
Florida. The populations of all
three species have decreased due to
loss of habitat in the southeastern
United States.
In Okefenokee's prairie wetlands,
the federally endangered Wood
stork can sometimes be spotted
r







searching for food. The Wood stork
is a large, long-legged wading bird
with a large, down-curved bill, a
black bald head, and mostly white
plumage with black wing-tips and
tail. Known locally as the Gannet,
the Wood Stork used to breed across
the southeastern United States from
Texas to South Carolina. Today they
are only found in Florida with small-
er populations in Georgia and South


E-Duck Stamp Available Sept. 1
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) will be making it easier for hunters, bird watchers,
stamp collectors and others who want to conserve the na-
tion's wetlands to buy Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and
Conservation Stamps, commonly known as Duck Stamps.
Beginning Sept. 1, the FWC, in partnership with the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), will launch a new E-
Duck Stamp program to enable the agency to sell stamps
electronically through its automated licensing system.
Customers will receive a Duck Stamp privilege printed
on their license that will be valid nationwide for 45 days.
They will then receive, through the mail, a paper stamp by
Amplex Corporate, a company on contract with the USFWS
to fulfill the paper stamp requirement. After the 45 days,
the E-Duck Stamp will expire and purchasers must possess
the paper stamp to receive its full benefit.
The E-Duck Stamp will fulfill the license requirement
for waterfowl hunters and also allow free entry into any na-
tional wildlife refuge in the United States. The Federal
Duck Stamp is available at most major sporting goods
stores selling hunting and fishing licenses, select post of-
fices and online through the U.S. Postal Service and Am-
plex Corporate.
The Duck Stamp also will be available at license agents,
tax collectors, by telephone, or through
www.wildlifelicensaecom/fl. Hunters 16 years or older are
required to buy a Federal Duck Stamp to hunt waterfowl.
The cost of the Duck Stamp will be $17.50.

Carolina. Wood Storks often move
into the Okefenokee in May after
nesting along the coast. The U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service is working
with others at Okefenokee National
Wildlife Refuge and other public and
private lands to protect the habitat
and ecosystems that these and other
endangered species need for sur-
vival.
Now some may ask, "Why should
we spend the time, effort and money
to save these four species and other
threatened and endangered species,
especially if it does not provide an
obvious benefit to people? Accord-
ing to the Endangered Species Act,
which Congress passed in 1973, en-
dangered species of fish, wildlife,
and plants "are of esthetic, ecologi-
cal, educational, historical, recre-
ational, and scientific value to the
Nation and its people." Each species
plays an important role in an ecosys-
tem, and when one species goes ex-
tinct, others could soon follow. Like
the canaries used in coal mines
whose death warned miners of bad
air, the increasing number of endan-
gered species warns us that the,-; ;,
health of our environment has de-
clined. The struggle for life on the
planet Earth is certainly not a game,
and if endangered species cannot
survive, what is follows next? Being
the finalist in the struggle of life is
no winning proposition.
