Proposed Super

Homestead

Exemption On

January Ballot
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A new super homestead exemption will
be placed on the January 29,2008 ballot. If
the proposed constitutional amendment
passes, it will change how homesteads are,
assessed in Florida.
According to information found on
y Property Appraiser Leigh Barfield's web-
site at www.madisonpa.com, if the mea-
sure passes, all property owners who have
a homestead exemption on January '1,
2008, must choose to do one of the follow-
ing:
a) Keep their existing homestead ex-
emption and their current Save Our
Homes cap.
The homestead amount is $25,000 and
the cap limits any annual assessed value
increases on that homestead to the lesser
of three percent or the change in the Con-
sumer Price Index, as long as they main-
tain it as their homestead.
or- .
b) Convert to the Super Homestead Ex-
emption and give up Save Our Homes.
The new Super Exemption will exempt
S 75% of the first $200,000 of value on the
homestead and 15% of the next $300,000
with no cap on value increases. This op-
. tion can be chosen in 2008 or in a later
S year, but the choice is irrevocable.
If the amendment passes, all persons
with homestead exemption in 2008 will
i continue under Save Our Homes unless
S they file a form with the Property Ap-
praiser's Office to switch to the Super Ex-
emption. All applications filed for home-
stead exemption for 2009 and thereafter
will be for the Super Exemption Save
Our Homes will not be available.
Nobody can guarantee which option is
S better for you or guarantee that the fore-
casts they make will prove accurate over
time. Uncertain future variables such as
inflation, the increase in real estate val-
ues, the length of time you will continue

County To Be Forced

To Pay Extra Medicare

Dollars For Nursing

Home Residents
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
,A $55 a year Medicare charge the coun-
ty has to pay for nursing home residents
may increase to $189 a year once the Leg-
islature convenes again.
STim Sanders. Clerk of the Court and
the county's Chief Financial Officer, calls
the proposed move
by the state a
"$263,000 wham-
my."
"We're already
having to cut
everything to the
bone," Sanders
said. "(With the s h
state recent cut-
backs in ad val-
orem taxes), they ,
are making coun- -........ ..
ties grovel. We've tried our best to cut
everything, except for people."' '
Sanders said that he did not think the
increase in the Medicare surcharge
would take place during the upcoming
Legislative session, but in the one follow-

By Jacob Bembry '
Greene Publishing, Inc..
Local volunteer fire departments will
receive a total of $85,215 in federalfunds.
The funds were awarded through the Fis-
cal Year 2007 Assistance to Firefighters
Grant Program.
"Rural fire departments like the Madi-
son volunteer fire departments are often
forced to make do with limited re-

shaw (R-Jacksonville). "This funding will
help them afford the equipment they
need to protect our communities and en-
sure their own safety
The money received for the grant will

Lt. Dan Campbell said that he

that he left Smith's county of

"Say it ain't so, Joe," is the cry that mournful Chica-

had thrown the 1919 World Series. Shoeless Joe Jack-
son and other players had taken money to lose the
games. The series was "fixed."
. As a child, I watched Muhammed Ali lose his world
title to Leon Spinks. I was happy, at first, until I saw.
what a jerk that Spinks was outside the ring. Ali
pounded Spinks in the return bout..Thinking on this,
years later, and realizing that Ali would get a bigger
payday for a re-match, I'think that Ali threw the first
fight. I believe the match was "fixed."
I have watched the soap opera ballet called profes-
sional wrestling since I was a child. I know that the
matches are pre-determined and it would be useless.
They are "fixed." .
The battle between Jesus Christ and Satan is fixed. I
do not believe that Satan would deliberately throw the
match. He is far too cunning and strong a competitor to
do that, but I do know that Jesus will win. I know the
Author of the Book and the Maker of this greatest of
matches.
Jesus Christ appeared down for the count at Calvary,

He has already won.

Dear Editor:
A review of the salaries of our county personnel
shows that the property tax payer is loosing the battle
of Government vs. Property Owner. Our local govern-
ment is out of control with its bureaucratic practice of
"tax and spend." Madison County has a population of
maybe 20,000; the salaries that are being paid to man-
age a local government the size of Madison are way out
of proportion. Example:
County Coordinator $69,300 plus a new SUV vehicle.
Road Department Director $61,751,76
County Planner $31,200
Emergency Management Director $43,014.36
Solid Waste Dept. Director $34,506
These expenditures amount to $239,772.12, and I
ask, for what?
SI would like to know why the above positions war-
rant this amountof income.
Who established these salaries? It was probably
some "expert" from out of town wearing a three-piece
suit and carrying a briefcase.
In addition to printing the salaries of our local bu-
reaucrats, I would like to see the newspaper also print
the job description of all of the positions. Then I would
like for those receiving the salaries to give an honest
description of what they actually do.
You can always tell how much money a county has
in its coffers by the number of personnel it has and the
number of vehicles owned by the county The parking
lot behind the County Annex has a number of brand
new vehicles, and the county road camp looks like an
equipment dealership. New furniture and refurbished
offices in the Court House and Annex are common-
place.
The County Commissioners are paid $27,000 -
$29,000, and again-I ask, for what? They meet twice a
month and make more than a person who works 40
hours a week and makes $500.00. How can they justify
this? ..
It is within the power of the County Commission to
make changes that would benefit the tax payers. They
could honestly review the amount of expenses and de-
termine if they are justified; they could honestly re-
view the county jobs and determine if they are truly
necessary and,justified. The Commissioners are not do-
ing the job that they were elected to do which is to rep-
resent the people and look out for the interest of the
people, not the interest of government.
I have mentioned only the Board of County Com-
missioners, but the same could be said of the County
School Board and the City Commission. None of these
governing entities want to tighten the belt and really
represent the tax payer. .
I do not have any personal ax to grind.with any per-
son in county or city government. My dissatisfaction is
with the way that our local government is being admin-
istered. It's just "tax more and spend more." But it
doesn't have to be that way,
C. T. McWilliams, Jr.


lice officers under-

now when he comes

salary he has. He al-
ways responds, "Be-

Question Of The Week


Darts To Offices With Hold Button
Huge bouquets of daisies to the boys from Warner
Robins, Ga., who slew the giants in the Little League
World Series to take the international title. Those were
some great games. I loved the part in the title game
where the pitcher got in a spot of trouble and the coach
called a mound conference. He asked the pitcher, "Are
you breathing?" The pitcher said, "Yes, sir," but anoth-
er player responded, "I'm not!" The home run in the
eighth was cool.
And double daisies to the Georgia father who quit
his job because the boss wouldn't give him time off to
go see his son play in the LLWW. ,What a.terrific ser-
mon for his child and everyone else about priorities.
(He got several job offers during the series.)
Whoa! Fresh daisies to the National democratic
Party for threatening to remove Florida's Delegates
from the National Convention if the state changes its
primary to January Other states trying to worm their
way into the beginning of the year will get the same
treatment. Hallelujah! The entire elect-a-president
process is already way too long and way too costly.
Syringe-shaped darts to doctor's offices (or any oth-
er offices) that put me on hold for fifteen minutes just
to make an appointment. One such office has three dif-
ferent spiels about what they offer, and I heard each
one three times the other day AAARRRGGGHHH!!!
Darts to smokers who believer that low-tar, low risk
stuff in the commercials and on the packages. It's not
true, ya'll; you and your loved ones are still in danger.
Lovely daisies to the Methodist Thrift Shop on
Pinckney St. for their grocery-sack special last Satur-
day. Customers could get a sack full of clothes for $1.00.
I filled up two sacks and went h9me and had my own
little fashion show. What fun. They're planning to do
that on the last Saturday of every month, I believe.
Daisies to Barry Bonds. Steroids or not, he has
raised the bar for baseball hitters. Special daisies to
Hank Aaron for his gentlemanly message on the jum-
bo-tron the night Bonds broke his record.
Sharp darts to newcomers who expect the new
place to be like the old place. And darts to long-time
Residents who expect newcomers to know the "rules"
right away Life is tough enough without such unrealis-
tic anticipations.
Daisies to parents who see -hat their children are
exposed to many kinds of music instead of allowing
them to wallow in the slime pit that some, popular mu-
sic has become.
Daisies to our community choir. They've started up
again. Contact NFCC if you want to joih; it's open to
everyone. .... . ,
Daisies to the developers of Loper's Pond out on
Little Cat Road. They put up a big sign and a lovely en-
trance in less than a week. I hope the whole thing looks
that good.
Daisies to you if your friendly smile has made
someone's life better.

Trim Your Spending

To Capture More

Money
Do you find yourself stretched to the limit and no
money left at end of the month? You may need to take
a good look at your spending habits. We all tend to let
money slip through our hands and it sometimes takes a
good hard look to figure out how the money is getting
away Extension Specialists at the University of Utah
offer the following suggestions:
$ Make do look for ways to avoid spending before
rushing out to solve problems with an outlay of cash.
It is less expensive to repair a broken screen than to re-
place it.
$ Pack your own lunch, snacks, and drinks its
amazing how small amounts add up over time.
$ Reduce spending in each budget category For ex-
ample, try to reduce you groceries, electric, and gas by
5% each month.
$ Substitute less expensive choices
$ Eliminate unnecessary expenses such as lottery
tickets, magazine subscriptions; try car pooling to
work.
$ Break costly habits like smoking, gambling and
eating out every day.
$ Delay purchases until you have shopped around
for the best deal.
$ Learn to do more things instead of hiring them
done. For example, children's haircuts, home or auto
repair, gardening or home remodeling.
Of course you haven't gained unless you capture
the money saved and direct it to where you want it to
go. Putting it into a savings account to use for unex-
pected expenses can keep you from adding more debt to
credit cards. You may want to take the extra money
and add it a current bill to get it paid off more quickly.

son County Extension Service.

Sunshine Law Is Good

For The Public
Two weeks, this newspaper ran a story on a town
council that had inadvertently committed a Sunshine
Law violation by refusing the editor of this newspaper
access to its minutes because they had not been "ap-
proved" by the board yet. The editor spoke with an at-
torney with the Florida Press Association and discov-
ered that the public, including but not just the press,
should have access to the minutes, even if they had not
been "approved."
In the past and since, the editor of this newspaper
and 6ther reporters have asked for and been granted
access to minutes that were not "approved" by the full
'board. This reporter has asked the Madison City Com-
mission, Greenville Town Council and Madison County
School Board for information on their meetings and
was granted the information.
One of the Lee Town Council members (Thelma
Thompson) was not a part of the decision to withhold
the minutes from the public but said that she would
have backed the decision to do so. In a letter to the edi-
tor, she says that mistakes could have been made and
they would have to change them at a later meeting.
This poses a question: Are the Town Council members
worrying about the Town Manager making mistakes
when she takes the minutes or are they worried about
a decision that they made that they may want to
change later before the public discovers the error?
Thompson also cited the reporter's health issues,,
and lack of attendance at the meetings. She suggested
that he delegate another member of the staff to attend
the meetings. What Thompson fails to realize is that
the newspaper is a "bare bones" staff and the editorial
staff is composed of the editor and two cub reporters
who would most likely be lost at a town council meet-
ing the same way that he was the first time he sat in on
a county commission meeting, town council meeting
and school board meeting. While the reporters are ex-
cellent at what they do, it takes time and maturity to be
able to take good notes at, a board meeting.
Regardless of what Thompson or any other board
member may believe, the Sunshine Law is for every
public body in the State of Florida to follow. The public
overwhelmingly votes for access to this information
every time this has been a ballot issue. As the eyes and
ears of the public, the:newspaper bears a great respon-
sibility and burden, making sure that they get public
information from public bodies.
The Sunshine Law is so important an issue that
Gov. Charlie Crist (who dealt with Sunshine Law viola-
tions while he was attorney general) has begun an Of-
fice of Open Government within the Governor's Office.
Pat Gleason, who is the Director of the new office,
said that she has dealt with councils not wanting to
share minutes that were not approved many times in
the past.
"I don't think that they are badly motivated," she
said. -I would suggest that they stamp the minutes 'un-
approved' or draft' and put the date on them."
Gleason has a wealth of experience dealing with
the Sunshine Law. Former Attorney General Robert
Shevin hired her as special counsel. Shevin was in-
st rueiental in getting the Sunshine Law in place and
enfforced.
Speaking of Crist, who she also worked with in the
Attorney General's Office, Gleason said, "The Sun-
shine Law is a big priority of his."
Gleason said that the number one priority in the
Office of Open Government is insuring that everyone
complies with the Sunshine Law.
Violations of the Sunshine Law can result in mone-
tary fines or jail time.
This newspaper applauds the openness of local gov-
erning bodies and will continue to go after those who
do not follow the Sunshine Law.

Good afternoon! Aren't we having lovely weather!
Oh, we know it's hot 101 degrees today, in fact. But
there's a breeze, just enough to cool a fever hot brow,
and the sky is so blue it sparkles. Are you enjoying
these last carefree days of summer? Did you have a fab-
ulous vacation? Or did you have to cut it short because
school opens so unnecessarily early? Children should'
be able to enjoy the great summers we have in Florida.
We'd be willing to bet that those school administrators
of today didn't have to start school in August we cer-
tainly did not.
Yes, we had a wonderful birthday celebration with
the family again this year thank you for asking, Ja-
cob, when we met in Wal-Mart recently. The bunkhouse
of the Diamond D Ranch with its 20 bunks, large din-
ing area and stage was the setting and Darrell Mead-
ows sang for us until 1:30 in the morning. And the ta-
bles 'groaned' with food. Many people took advantage
of the bunks and spent the night, partaking of left-
overs and the several pots of coffee brewed both there
and at Vicki's house next door on Sunday morning.
They seemed loath to leave when the bunkhouse had to
be vacated at 1 p.m. and spent several hours in Vicki's
house and yard. And there was so much laughter isn't
it wonderful when family and convivial friends get to-
gether and everything goes so well especially when
the mix consists of five generations?
And what did you do why don't you call and tell us?
We really would like to hear from you. It seems every-
one we ask says 'I don't know a thing'. Is that the re-
sponse you get, Ginger, when you ask them to.meet you
at the, gatepost? Probably not you are too nice.
The greatest news we've heard is that Lee seems cer-
tain to get a new library isn't that wonderful? We
were quite surprised a few weeks ago to see the antique
bookcase which Maurice Nethery had given us for the
library several years ago in the Lee Town Hall Cheryl
said the library had given it to the town. Guess they're
preparing to 'out with the old, in with the new'. At
least, it has a good home and will be appreciated. We
wonder, though, what happened to the antique books it
had held. T.C. Merchant had given us a set of classics
from his extensive collection at the same time we re-
ceived the bookcase. And we had asked, if they were
ever disposed of, that we were notified. We would have
.been glad to pay for them. Oh, well, how soon we forget.
And now since no one has returned our calls, we will,
bid you au revoir have a wonderful future.

CyberCrime Unit, law enforcement
agencies target individuals soliciting
children online
In an intensive statewide effort to stop the Internet
solicitation of children and the distribution of child
pornography, 126 individuals have been arrested by a
task force of local, state and federal law enforcement
officials, including the Attorney General's Child
Predator CyberCrime Unit. The arrests announced to-
day were part of "Operation Eviction," a five-month
initiative targeting individuals who prey on children
over the Internet and led by the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement (FDLE). The operation ran from Jan-
uary 1 through May 31, 2007.
"The importance of presenting a united front
against cyber criminals, when we are trying to protect
our children, can not be over emphasized," said Attor-
ney General Bill McCollum. "Internet predators know
no geographical boundaries, and we must fully cooper-
ate to effectively cover our state with our protective ef-
forts. This operation has achieved phenomenal results
and my office will soon have 50 additional staff mem-
bers in the CyberCrime Unit to assist in these endeav-
ors."
"Florida's law enforcement community will not tol-
erate individuals who prey on the innocence of a
child," FDLE Commissioner Bailey said. "Operation
Eviction is an example of agencies pulling their re-
sources together with one goal in mind protecting
our children."
Operation Eviction was a coordinated effort by
Florida's law enforcement community in support of
the U.S. Attorney General's Project Safe Childhood,
which aims to combat the proliferation of technology-
facilitated sexual exploitation crimes against children
by merging together all available resources. Partici-
pants included the Attorney General's Child Predator
CyberCrime Unit, the Florida Department of Law En-
forcement's Computer Crime Center, the North Florida
and South
Florida Internet Crimes Against Children task
forces, the U.S. Attorney General's Office and local law
enforcement agencies. During the operation, 261 inves-
tigations were initiated and 87 search warrants were
executed. Those arrested represent 28 counties.
"The United States Attorney's Offices in Florida are
committed to vigorously prosecuting child pornogra-
phy and exploitation cases under the Attorney Gener-
al's highest priority, Project Safe Childhood," acting
U.S. Attorney James R. Klindt stated. "Together with
our state and local partners, we will continue to ag-
gressively pursue and incarcerate for the longest
terms possible those who would use the Internet to
prey on Florida's children."
Today, more than 77 million American children reg-
ularly use the Internet. According to the Federal Inter-
net Crimes Against Children Task Force, Florida
ranks fourth in the nation in volume of child pornog-
raphy
Nationally one in seven children between the ages
of ten and 17 have been solicited online by a sexual
predator. In response to these statistics, Attorney Gen-
eral McColhmu was instru-
mental in developing and
supporting the Cyber-
Crimes Against Ch.ildren
^Act of 2007, a measure that
toughens penalties for
those who use the internet
S ... ~ to sexually prey on chil-
dren. This bill, which
Sing the 2007 Florida Leg-
islative Session, now posi-
S -/ tions Florida as a national
S '- leader in the legal fight
r against child pornography
S and internet solicitation of
children. The legislation
increases penalties for the
possession or distribution
of child pornography on-
line and creates a new, sep-
Sa rate penalty against inter-
S, net predators who commu-
t nicate with a child online
S and then travel to meet
that child for the specific
purpose of further sexual-
ly abusing him or her.
The CyberCrime Unit's
-. ..- mission is to protect chil-
dren from computer-facili-
-- .. tated sexual exploitation.
I .. The unit accomplishes this
and -rice S,. by working cooperatively
P with statewide law enforce-
ment agencies and prose-
cutors to provide resources
I EJ T and expertise. Additionally,
the unit works to prevent
ion $28 the spread of these crimes
through education and
option $35 community awareness.The
CyberCrime Unit is a mem-
) ~ber of the Internet Crimes
Against Children Task
Force (ICAC) of North

al depictions of child pornogi-aphy Darrell Mark Krause,

ty in May 2007. Court documents charged that on March

tion of which visual depictions involved the use of mi-
nors engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

berCrime Unit of the Florida Attorney General'sOffice,'
the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the St Johns
County Sheriff's Office. Assistant United States Attorney
D. Rodney Brown is handling the prosecution of this case.

cases for Federal prosecution because we believe nothing
is more serious than the sexual exploitation of our
youngest citizens." said Attorney General McCollum. "I
appreciate the determined efforts made by the U.S. Attor-
ney's Office to keep these individuals away from our chil-
dren."
This case is part of Project Safe Childhood. hi Febru-
ary 2006, Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales created'

Senior Citizen's Celebrate

August Birthdays


An effort to benefit local children with urgent healthcare needs

Greene Publishing, Inc.
August 28, the Senior Citizen's Center of Madison
celebrated all their client's August birthdays. The end
of the month bash is help to celebrate people's birth-
days each month it's one big party!
This month, everyone got a treat of cake and ice
cream, thanks to Lorrine Quinn, Ellen Featcher, and
Bertha Parrish, who all had August birthdays.
Before the festivities began, a delicious lunch was
served. Chicken wings, catfish, cornbread, mustard
greens, baked beans, potato salad, and deviled eggs
were piled high! Some of the senior ladies even helped
fry the catfish.

Kiwanis Clubs Hear About

Madison Parks And Recreation


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On August 23, the Kiwa-
nis Club met as
is their
normal
custom. I
Pat
Cantey
shared
the joke
published
in the bul-
letin, this time one
about a dwarf. Apparent-
ly, Pat was having a bad
day and ended up in a
fender bender he rear-
ended a car. The driver
stepped out of the car; he
was a dwarf; He looked :
up at Pat and said, "I'm
NOT Happy!" Pat curi-
ously added, "Well, which
one are you?" The fight
was on.
Pat didn't really get
into a fender bender, but
he was more than happy
to share a funny joke after
a delicious lunch of fried
chicken and green beans,
creamed corn and salad.
On the night of Friday,
September 27, during the
North Florida Communi-
ty College Art Series,
there will be a big band
concert. The concert will
feature the musical
stylings of instrumental-
ists from all over the
country
In national news, for
all former service mem-
bers, it's perfectly all
right to salute the flag in
the traditional military
salute, instead of the
hand over the heart. In
past years, it's been cus-
tom for anyone not in a
military uniform to place
their hand over the heart.
However, to show respect
and recognition for veter-
ans, former members of
any armed service may
now salute the flag.
Tommy Garner, who is
in charge of the recre-
ation department for the
county spoke at the Kiwa-
nis meeting. Two grants
are in the works, one will
allow for a recreation
area behind Clover Farm,
and the other will expand
Cherry Lake Beach.
The first grant, a Flori-
da Recreation Develop-
ment Assistance Program,
is paid for by the folks
who buy fishing and hunt-
ing licenses in the state of
Florida. The money goes
into a trust fund, and is
later used for grants. The
FRDAP grant will allow
for a pavilion, basketball
court, a playground, and
volleyball courts on donat-
ed land. The park will be
named after former area
pastor R.W Washington.
The Cherry Lake Beach
expansion grant will al-
low for an expanded boat
ramp, a concession area, a
fishing pier, a playground,
and an area for horse-
shoes. Right now, the boat
ramp is only large enough
for a few boats, and fish-
ing is not allowed at the
public swimming area.


Pat Cantey shared that
the information signs for
Kiwanis are complete!
Lest mem-
bers forget,
Lucille
Day s
ners
are
still
winning
with 90
points, and Cantey's
Conquerors are trailing
behind with a measly 40
points. '


The Madison County Junior
Auxiliary has launched a coun-
tywide recycling campaign
"Cans 4 Kids." Since May 2007,
the project has recycled over
763 pounds of aluminum equal-
ing $419. All proceeds from the
Auxiliary's recycling endeavor
will benefit children in Madi-
son County who have urgent
healthcare needs.
The Auxiliary's first recipi-
ent, 7-year-old Jonathan Goley
of Lee was diagnosed in May
with Gorham's disease, also
known as "Disappearing Bone
Disease." There have been only
200 reported cases of this dis-
ease in medical literature and
treatments are still experimen-
tal. However, recent reports in-
dicate that Goley's medical
treatments are working and
that new bone is growing.
The Junior Auxiliary of
Madison County is the first Ju-
nior Auxiliary chapter in the
state of Florida. The Auxiliary


is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit orga-
nization. Currently, the Junior
Auxiliary is serving its commu-
nity with projects such as

Land Surveyors ProvideAn Important Service For The Community


By Ashley .Bell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Land surveying is defined as the art of making
relatively large precise measurements with a max-
imum of accuracy and with a minimum expendi-
ture of time and labor. Technically speaking, land
surveyors measure land.
In the State of Florida, a four-year degree in
surveying or a related field is required to be a sur-
veyor. Each degree requires different years of ex-
perience: a surveying degree requires five years of
experience and a non-surveying degree requires
six years. With their degrees, the average surveyor
will make $50,000 to $70,000 a year, depending on'.
location and number of jobs.
Local surveying companies in Madison in-
clude Briggs, Washington, and Thompson Survey-
ing and Poppell, Putnal and Associates.
Thompson and Associates Land Surveying, Inc.,
of Madison, has been in continuing operation
since the 1950s. New owners, Andy Briggs and Bil-
ly Washington, bought the company from then-
owner Bill Thompson in January of this year. The
company was renamed Briggs, Washington, and
Thompson Surveying. The typical surveys that
their two surveyors perform are boundary, topo-
graphic, and ALTA/ACSM surveys.
There are many different types of surveys per-
formed by surveyors:
ALTA/ACSM (American Land Title Associa-
tion and the American Congress on Surveying
and Mapping) Survey: incorporates elements of
the boundary survey, mortgage survey, and topo-
graphic survey. Generally required for real estate
transactions.
Archaeological Survey: used to accurately as-
sess the relationship of archaeological sites in a
landscape or to accurately record finds on an ar-
chaeological site.
As-Built Survey: a complete survey of a con-


struction site to con-
firm that the struc-
tures, utilities, and
roadways proposed
were built in the proper
locations authorized in
the Plot Plan or Site
Plan.
Bathymetric Sur-
vey: done to map the
seabed profile.
Boundary Survey: .. .
the actual physical ex- ,
,tent of property owner-
ship is measured, and a
map or plat is drawn
from the data. _

new structures such as roads or, buildings for fol-
lowing construction.
Deformation Survey: a survey to determine if
a structure or object is changing shape or moving.
Engineering Survey: those surveys associated
with the engineering design (topographic, layout,
and as-built surveys) often requiring geodetic
computations beyond normal civil engineering
practice.
Erosion and Sediment Control Plan: a plan
that is drawn union with a Subdivision Plan that
indicates how upcoming construction activities
will effect the movement of storm water and sedi-
ment across the constructions site and onto ad-
joining properties and how developers will adjust
grading activities to limit the depositing of more
storm water and sediment onto adjoining proper-

Planning To Bu

A Few Things Y
By Jessica R. Higginbotham
Compiled from information from Leigh
Barfield, Madison County Property Appraiser
Greene Publishing, Inc.
When adding on to a home or building
new construction, there are certain costs that
must be taken into account in the process. Per-
mitting for the structure is a must. This can be
done in the Board of County Commissioners of-
fice in the Court House Annex in Room 219.
Without the proper permitting, there can be no
construction. The cost of the addition is proba-
bly the heftiest financial impact that will pre-
sent itself. Depending on what type of con-
struction you choose, the quality and materials
used determines the value of the addition or
new construction, which will increase your
property value regardless. Example, brick ex-
terior compared to TI-11 exterior walls makes
a difference in cost when building as well as
how your taxable value is assessed. Property
taxes are an ongoing burden that everyone will
have to deal within at some point. Once the struc-
ture is added, property value will increase
based on the value of the addition and taxes
will be determined according to current millage
rates.
The structure is not taxed until its comple-
tion. For example, if an addition is being con-
structed and construction begins in July of 2007
and is finished in October of 2007, the structure
becomes taxable in January 1 of 2008, because it
is completed. On the other hand. if construc-
tion begins in July of 2007 and is not complete

Real Estate Market Shaping Up For A AAvage Year


By Jessica I
Greene Pub
The market
is good, says
Lynette Sirm
under $140,0C
but above tha
range, people
can't afford p
The payment


lI?

mu Should Know
by January of 2008, the property is not taxable
until the following January of 2009. The Prop-
erty Appraiser date of appraisal is January 1 of
each year.
Bathrooms, structure material, roof type.
and any other improvements on basic structure
will increase the value of a home. Per each
$1.000 of value, a $16.0114 millage rate is imhu-
posed by the taxing authorities but this is just
in the county, not in municipalities. The mill-
age rates for the municipalities are as follows:
City of Madison, $23.0114. Town of Lee, $22.6814,
Town of Greenville, $25.2214. These rates were
for the year 2006 and change each year by the
taxing authorities.
The average value of a new construction is
approximately $47 per square foot for 2007 tax
roll. This is not to say that every new construc-
tion would be valued at $47 per square foot, this
is merely an average rate according to the mar-
ket in 2006. The base rates arq determined by
whatever the market rate is, and a percentage of
that rate combined with the cost per square foot
and millage rates in each area.
For an example of how the system func-
tions: Assume that an in-ground pool is being
constructed. A typical pool is 12 feet by 30 feet,
which is a total of 360 square feet. At $25 per
square foot times 360 square feet, the value of
the pool is $9,000. That value, multiplied by the
current millage rate for county construction
($16.0114) gives a grand total of $144.00 in taxes
on the pool each year.
Exemptions, to be approved by the Property
Appraiser are available each year be-
y tween January 1 through March 1.
Homestead Exemption is $25,000 off the
total taxable value of the home. Senior
I Citizens in this area are also eligible for
aL an exemption, which is $50,000 in addi-
tion to the base of $25,000 on county mill-
age only The Property Appraiser DOES
NOT determine the property taxes for a
home. The Property Appraiser is respon-
lid sible for reflecting market value on all
Oak, properties in the county and granting ex-
le, emptions. The Madison County Commis-
With sion, School Board, Suwannee River Wa-
ter Management and Municipalities (City
of Madison, Town of Lee and Town of
Greenville) are responsible for setting tax
120 rates levied against your taxable value.

mon says


that she's been selling a

cheaper that land is. "You
don't know if you're get-
ting some bad mixed in
with the good. So, 40
acres of land might be
$4,995 an acre, but you
have to buy all 40 acres,
not just a few." When
buying large amounts of
land. a buyer isn't guaran-
teed 100 percent good
land. Some might be
marshy. low. or spotty; or
it might have some
cleared spots.
Prices in Steinhatchee
are starting to drop, but
there are no big bargains
vet. says Anchor Realty's
Pamr Wessels. The market
is literally 'flooded with
lots or homes for sale.
Thus far this yea;, Anchor
Realty has only seen
about 40 sales, when last
year they already had 80,
and the year before four-
times that.
On the more expensive
lots, people are doing 10 13
exchanges no money is
actually going out of
pocket. Buyers have sold
something else and immne-
diately put that money


into a new property.
The hot area for Steini-
hatchee is the Landing.
Homes are going for
$120,00, with the higher
end homes in subdivi-
sions going for the mid to
upper $300,000 range.
The average quarter
acre lot price in Stein-
hatchee is about $50.000.
Wessels added that people
are dumping properties
that they've held, trying
to get a buyer.
From the average buy-
ers perspective: Interest
rates for loans are low, so
buyers won't need to fret
over APR. People want to
move, so new buyers are
getting better deals on
previously owned houses.
Most people are buying
lots of build!
Right now isn't the best
time to buy. but as the
market continues to flood
with homes, the price will
continue to drop.
The supply and demand
principle from economics
comes into play here. and
most first time buyers
should probably wait on
the market to suit them.
As always. buyers
should shop smart!

A Brief History of Labor Day in the USA j
Labor Day in the United States was born amidst a country in political turmoil. The first
Labor Day parade was sponsored by the Central Labor Union in New York City on Tuesday,
Sept. 5, 1882. It included as many as ten thousand working people. After the celebration,
many other states began to recognize the holiday.
Still, many workers were unhappy with the manner in which the government dealt with
strikes, poor wages and poor working conditions. A huge strike at the Pullman Railway Com-
pany in 1893, for example, drew nationwide attention to labor-related issues. Shortly after the
strike (and subsequent arrests), laborers in New York left work to march on Union square in sup-
port of a holiday that would celebrate the common worker.
Finally, in 1894, twelve years after the first Labor Day, President Cleveland made Labor Day
a holiday for federal workers. Thus, the labor movement created Labor Day and the ensu-
ing celebration of the social and economic achievements by American workers.
To show the public the strength and spirit of the trade and labor organiza-
tions in the community, unions planned the holiday to include a
street parade and a festival for the recreation and amuse-
ment of the workers and their families.

Turnovers Cause Warriors

To Fall To Bobcats

Two turnovers inside the

played a big role in the Au-
cilla Christian Academy
Warriors' loss to the Robert

jamboree played in Quincy

Striplin added that the
Warriors played hard and
have a lot of mistakes to cor-
rect before the season open-
er this Friday August 31,
against Maclay
Quarterback Matt Dob-
son went 11 for 22 for 114

cal when they battle the
Maclay Marauders.
S"W have to limit the
turnovers," Striplin added.
"If we can't limit the
turnovers, we're going to be
in trouble."
Players to watch this year,
according to Striplin, are
Dobson, of Greenville, as
well as Barnwell, of Jeffer-
son County on offense and
free safety Elliott Lewis, of
Madison, on defense.
"I'm looking for some big
things out of Elliott," he
said.

The parents of school-aged children are no novices
when it comes to school supply lists. Each parent
knows the basics, like pens or pencils, erasers, paper,
and maybe a pack of markers or crayons. However, in
recent years, schools and daycare centers all over the
country have been asking parents to send hand sanitiz-
er with their little ones.
The schools in Madison don't require a particular.
brand, but they do like for the hand sanitizer to have
the 99.9 percent kill rate for germs. Children pick up
germs from everywhere. They flush toilets, turn door-
knobs, share toys, and play outside. It's no surprise
that bacterial like salmonella, shigella, E. poli, influen-
za, and campylobacter are present everywhere.
One study conducted showed that over 2.7 million
bacteria cells are present on just one square inch of
some common school surfaces. Hand sanitizers like
Purell are great for killing germs, but there's no substi-
tute for hand washing with antibacterial soap and wa-
ter.
Some questions have been raised about the efficien-
cy of hand sanitizers, not in killing bacteria, but the .1
percent of left behind grime. Some critics argue that
by using hand sanitizer, people are simply speeding up
natural selection. One such critic said, "applying a
blanket extermination policy against every germ in
your path is going to make you more susceptible to the
next strain to come your way."
The benefits do seem to outweigh the possible conse-
quences, though. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers like
Purell have been effective in eliminating 99.9 percent of
E. coli, staphylococcus sp., streptococcus sp., and sal-
monella.
Everyone, no matter what age, should practice good
hand washing skills. Applying sanitizers alone does
not eliminate the need to continue washing hands.
Hand sanitizers should always be kept out of reach of
children. Day care centers, like Miss Jean's or Laura's
Wee Folks have sanitizer on site, but they supervise the
use of the product. Billie Jean Fuqua said that she and
her helpers actually assist the children in rubbing the
cleanser on their hands, so they don't ingest any.

Wood Ducks Re


Through Conser


It might be just another
dead, hollow tree near the
water's edge, but it's
prime wood duck real es-
tate. Leaning to one side,
extending out over the wa-
ter of the marsh, this tree
not only houses a brood of
wood ducks (ALx sponsa),
but it will also serve as a
launching point for these
ducklings. Once old
enough to leave the nest,
the newly hatched wood
ducks heed the hen's call
and high dive from the
opening of the nest before
plunging safely into the
water below. In the past,
trees like this Ohave been
in short supply and
sometimes still are. But
today, whether they nest
in hollow trees or in man-


ject of affection for
sportsmen, artists and
wildlife watchers alike. In
'the late 19th and early
20th centuries, however,
the desire to clear-cut
homesteads to make room
for growing crops and
selling timber led to a
dirth in old trees for wood
ducks to nest in. As a re-
sult, their numbers
dropped dramatically.
Today, populations of
wood ducks throughout
North America are stable
and on the increase. One
of the main reasons for
the successful rebound of
the populations is the suc-
cess of sportsmen and
women in building and
using wood duck boxes.
These boxes, hung high in

made wood duck boxes.
there's more and more
wood ducks filling the
skies and the water.
A century ago, change
and expansion continued
to sweep much of North
America, and the wood
duck suffered as a result.
Prior to wide-spread log-
ging and farming opera-
tions throughout the nest-
ing grounds of the wood
duck, these strikingly
beautiful birds had plenty
of old trees in which to
make nests. With their
down-lined houses high
enough off the ground to
escape predation and ris-
ing water, wood ducks
were plentiful and the ob-


trees, light poles, barns
and other places, give
these ducks a place to
hatch their young. In
many states, agencies are
using funds collected from
sportsmen dollars to ex-
pand these programs. Oth-
er conservation groups -
most founded and run by
sportsmen and women -
also engage in hanging
boxes. The impact has
been substantial: more
and more wood ducks are
seen on the water, roam-
ing the ground under big
canopies of oak trees, eat-
ing acorns, which are a
main staple in their diet.
In the eyes of many,
there are few North

more beautiful than the
wood duck. It has graced
duck stamps many times,
is featured in highly cov-
eted outdoor art while
their feathers are highly
sought after by fly fisher-
man and outdoor enthusi-
asts. Also known for its
wonder table fare, the
male wood duck is easily
identifiable with his iri-
descent green and purple
head, white line extend-
ing from the bill and to
his crest and red eyes.
And thanks to sportsmen
and women everywhere.
the wood duck has once
again achieve population
levels that allow current
generations to marvel at
its beauty.
On Saturday, Septem-
ber 22, 2007, millions of
Americans will celebrate
the success of the wood
turkey and many other
species as part of Nation-
alHunting and Fishing
Day activities that will be
going on nationwide. Na-
tional Hunting and Fish-
ing Day began after a
presidential proclamation
m 1972 that sets aside the
fourth Saturday of each
September for the event.
Since then, national, re-
gional, state and local or-
ganizations have staged
thousands of open house
hunting- and fishing-re-
lated events everywhere
from shooting ranges to
suburban frog ponds, pro-
viding millions of Ameri-
cans with a chance to ex-
perience, understand and
appreciate traditional
outdoor sports.
The careful wood duck
conservation efforts of
the past have given mil-
lions of people the thrill
of hearing the duck call
to its young across the
distance, to view it in its
natural habitat and to re-
store its population to
huntable populations.
Conservation groups,
sportsmen and women
and wildlife watchers
alike are all stakeholders
in the future of the wood
duck, to ensure that the
wood duck nest in our
trees (or boxes) and
swims in our marshes
and ponds long enough
for future generations to
see.
National Hunting and
Fishing Day formalized
by Congress in 1971, was
created by the National
Shooting Sports Founda-
tion to celebrate the con-
servation successes of
hunters and anglers. Na-
tional Hunting and Fish-
ing Day is observed on
the fourth Saturday of
every September.


To those in the conservation move-
ment, Archie Carr was one of the
great heroes of the 20th century. A pi-
oneering biologist, ecologist and na-
ture writer, he launched an interna-
tional campaign to protect various
species of migratory sea turtles all
over the world. In so doing, Carr, who.
died in 1987, created the template for
many successful environmental cam-
paigns that followed.
Now, a Florida State University his-
torian has documented Carr's life and
analyzed his lasting impact in a new
biography. Frederick R. Davis, an as-
sistant professor of history at FSU,
has written "The Man Who Saved Sea
Turtles: Archie Carr and the Origins
of Conservation Biology," recently
published by Oxford University Press.
. "Like so many others, I was in-
spired by Archie Carr's efforts in sci-
ence and conservation," Davis said.
"I've always spent a lot of time out-
doors, studying birds and other ,
wildlife. I've also enjoyed reading nat-
uralists' accounts of their travels. So
I found him to be something of a kin-
dred spirit.
"What made Carr particularly in-
teresting to me was the way his 50-
year career mirrored the overall evo-
lution qf naturalist tradition, biology
and conservation during the 20th cen-
tury. As someone whose main re-
search interests are environmental
history and the history of science, I
found Archie Carr to be the perfect
subject for exploring these topics."
Born in Mobile, Ala., in 1909, Carr
grew up in Savannah, Ga., where the
family's backyard was filled with
cages of snakes, lizards and turtles.
He earned a doctorate in zoology
from the University of Florida in
1937, and remained on the UF faculty
for the rest of his life.,
Early in his career,
Carr's work was predom-
inantly in the field of
taxonomy the system-
atic classification of .
plants and animals. He
described numerous
species and subspecies
that were new-to science.
However, he went on to'
teach biology in Hon-
duras from 1945 to 1949.
This gave him the perfect. ,
opportunity to study
Central American
wildlife- and to en-
counter sea turtles, which
became his life's work.
."From a conservation
standpoint, perhaps his
greatest discovery was
that of a beach known as
Tortuguero in Costa Rica
is the most important
nesting site of the endan-
gered green turtle in the
entire -Western Hemi-
sphere," Darvis said. "In
documenting their migra-
tory patterns, he showed
that these large turtles,
which can grow in excess
of 300 pounds, travel all Ma
over the Caribbean Chicken W
even to the Florida Keys
but return to Tor- Chicken Bi
tuguero to reproduce.
"By protecting just one Leg Quart
beach, then, he demon- 10 lb. Bag (
strated how it might be.
possible to save an entire Hand Cut I

extinction. Fortunately, Pork Chop

officials championed Carr's cause,
and Tortuguero National Park was
established in 1975. The turtle-tag-
ging program that Carr began there
in 1955 continues today, and recently,
record numbers of turtles have nest-
ed at Tortuguero."
Through the Caribbean Conserva-
tion Corporation, which he helped
found in 1959, Carr came to be recog-
nized as the world's greatest authori-
ty on sea turtles. Subsequent studies
took him to eastern African, Papua
New Guinea, Australia and numerous
other locales across the globe, where
his message of international cooper-
ation to save endangered species
gained popularity.
A gifted nature writer, Carr wrote
10 books, some of which ("The Wind-
*ward Road: Adventures of a Natural-
ist on a Remote Caribbean Shore,"
1955, and "Ulendo: Travels of a Natu-
ralist In and Out of Africa, "1964, in
particular) were quite successful
among general audiences and helped
spread the message of conservation
to the masses.
"For all of his many accomplish-
ments, Archie Carr's greatest talent
may have been his ability to build
consensus," Davis said. "He conveyed
a folksy, non-threatening demeanor
that enabled him to interact with lo-
cal fishermen and even sea turtle
poachers. but he,also was able to
build successful sea turtle conserva-
tion alliances with governments
around the Caribbean and the globe."
