School Violence


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
According to Madison County
School Superintendent Lou Miller, stu-
dents at Madison County Central
School reported to their parents that
another student had a knife on cam-
pus. The parents then contacted
school officials to alert them of the in-
cident (the day after the alleged inci-


dent occurred). The student that al-
legedly possessed the knife the day be-
fore was located and searched, but no.
. knife was recovered.
"The difficulty in an incident like
this," Miller said, "is that no adult was
involved at the time." Students went
home for the day and told their par-
ents that there was a knife, but they
didn't tell the most important people


- A Growing Problem?


in the situation school administra-
tors or the resource officer.
The school system relies on stu-
dents reporting incidents of violence
or things that appear out of the ordi-
nary.
In the case at MCCS, the student.
who allegedly brought the knife to
school was suspended, but because
there is no physical proof, he or she


won't be charged with a crime or sent
to the Excel Alternative School.
Madison County schools do not
have walk-through metal detectors.
,There are no future plans to install
walk-through metal detectors.
There were 32 school-associated vi-.
olent deaths in the United States be-
tween July 1, 1999 and June 30, 2000 -
16 involved school-aeed children.


School violence continues to create ,
an ongoing challenge to the nation's
-education environment; are schools
safe for children? The answer to that
question is yes. Schools, in terms of
risk for homicides, are probably one .of
the safest places for children. Inci-
dents of school violence are not rout-

New Banking Facility Being Constructed


By-Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A new banking facility pairing PBC Finan-
cial Services and Citizens State Bank. is being
constructed at the old Live Oak Gas site. at the
corner of Range Street and NML Drive, in
Madison.
"Two years ago. plans were put in place to
build a new mortgage production office ui
Madison," said Ray Gr-iffin. vice president of
PBC Financial Sertifee. "As we rev Iteed otu
portfolio of loan-;. w.- soon re-alized that the
growth we had experienced in Madison Cotunty


was sufficient to pursue a full service branch lo.
cation. After a year of planning and designing
the facility. we decided that it was time to pro-
ceed with our plans. Madison County has been
great to us as a mortgage business. Our goal
now as Citizens State Bank is to provide all the
services that our customers need to be success-
fid in their business and personal lives."
Griffin estimated that the new bank facility
would be complete and fully operational in the
fist quarter of 2008. The office design will be
an early Florida home theme, with a high.
pitched roof and wraparound porches.

Madison County has said,
that they would pave the prop-

cil if they would like to pave
760 feet of roadway that they,
own. The road frontage is situ-
ated next to the Leeward Es-
tates subdivision.
Town Manager Cheryl Ar-
chambault said that she had
spoken with Gary Webb, who is
developing the subdivision, and
told him that he would be re-

From SUV
, By Jacob Bembry
GreenePublishing, Inc.
A 2002 Suzuki SUV was to-
taled and its driver seriously in-
jured in a wreck at the 249 west-
bound mile-marker on Inter-
state 10 Monday. September 3.
According to a Florida High-
way Patrol report, Amy E. Post,
31, was traveling east on 1-10 in
the inside lane, when she ran
off the roadway and traveled
northeast across the grass me-
dian. She then traveled across
both westbound lanes and in a
northeasterly direction onto the,
north shoulder of the west-
bound side.
As the SUV traveled onto the
shoulder, it turned one-quarter
of a turn clockwise and rolled
one-and-a-quarter times and
came to a final rest 70 feet from
the road surface, facing north-
west.
Post was ejected from the
SUV and was lying on the
around 53.4 feet from the road
surface
Post was transported to Tal-
lahassee Memorial Hospital by
Madison County EMS. She was
in stable condition at the time
of -the FHP press release on

Freedom From Fear
I left work early Tuesday to attend to some personal
matters that I can never quite find the time to attend to
during a normal workday.
During the day, having a little room to breathe, I fi-
nally got around to getting a haircut. I was able to shop
for some needed items, but, most.of all, like I said, I
had room to breathe.
The most pressing matter that I had to take care of
had weighed heavy on my mind for years. I won't go
into the details of what it was because my procrastina-
tion is something that I am quite ashamed of. It was fi-l
nally taken care of with relative ease at a little after 4
p.m.
It seems that every day is a jumble of work, sleep
and dreams. Most times, it seems that I am sleepwalk-
ing and it's hard to separate reality from the dreams I
have at night.
I went to sleep early for me on Tuesday night (a little,
after 9). My sleep was not restful, however, as my
dreams were bad. They all ran together into one long
bad nightmare.
I never dream of monsters or scary ghosts when I
dream. I dream of things that could really happen and
the things that I worry about the most.
I need to end each day, not only with a prayer, but'
also with planting the Word of God in my mind by
reading the Bible before I close my eyes and drift off to
sleep, so that, even in my dreams, I will learn to fear
not.

Hello, my fellow Madison County Citizens. I just
wanted to stop in to see if anything has change
yet around my home town. I wanted to let you
know that God is still in control and he want his
people to come out of the Old Me and enter into
the New Me.
In Psalms 37:23&24, The steps of a good man are
ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.
24, Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast
down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.
Meaning, that the lord order our steps before we
began to sin in this world and we all come short of
the glory of God. Knowing that God knew us be-
fore we knew us. To my fellow Citizens, when you
see a person down, don't look upon him like noth-
ing and that he is a peace of trash. Pick that per-
son up and help. Thats what life is all about, giv-
ing a helping hand.
* Be encourage, my fellow brother and sisters. To
my fellow school boards members and city coun-
cel. If you see that you can't do the job let it go
and let someone else do the job, ok. Give the peo-
ple of the community what they need, like the old
Middle school, which is just sitting their and will
help everyone. When I was in Madison I got tired
of seeing things fall short,' because the people in
power has know power. Also. to see our young kids
fall, not having anything to do. because we adults
get so trap up in our own mess. Yes, I said it. Life
is toshort to fall, you see how HOT it is outside,
HELL is going to be worse than that, if we don't
correct our mess.
Oh, yea stay away from those so call brothers
and sisters aka friends. True friends will be their
for you know matter what or trust in God and he,
will turn everything around for you. Until I see
Madison County again, please change for the bet-
terment of our kids of the future.
I know I have made some people uncomfortable,'
but life is all about truth.
Love God and my family for the Support.

THE CANCER

OF IGNORANCE
In the summer of 1978, nearly
thirty years ago, my father, broth-
er, sister and I, along with mem-
bers of our extended family and a
large contingency of close friends
lost the woman that I knew only as
"Mom".
Cancer had been discovered
Christmas Eve of 1977, and al-
though she had been given less
than 30 days to live, her last breath
was on July 26, 1978. Just 10 days
earlier she was able to walk down
the isle as the "Mother of the
Bride" at her youngest child's wed-
ding. What a bittersweet time.,
It was in a very short time that
those of us in my immediate fami-
ly came to understand that it was
my mother who had been
the foundation and the
strength that held our fam-
ily together. It was she U
that provided the fuel for
the family to operate as a
single unit; it was she that
bonded us together with
love, faith and discipline. I If
don't know if we realized it in 1
at the time, but she had
been out guiding light, and
now that light had gone
out.
For the next two years or
so, just about everything
my family and I could do
wrong we did wrong. Our
decision-making processes .
bordered on near insanity,
or were self-destructive. If
either of us had a choice to
make in our personal or
business lives, somehow we
would manage to make the
wrong one.
But now, nearly 30 years
later, I realize that when
my mother passed on, we
lost more than our loving
mother and my dad's best
friend. We lost our direc-
tion. My mother's passing
had taken with it our un-
derstanding of how to live
a good and balanced life. It
seemed our ship was adrift
with no chance of wind.
And allof this destruc-
tive impact on five seem-
ingly happy and sensible
people began quietly and
unnoticed possibly many
years earlier when some-
how a single cell of cancer
was planted into my moth-


Consumer Responsibility
Is The Focus Of
National Food Safety Month
September marks National Food Safety Montlhand&,
the focus in on prevention through handwashing. This
year's theme is "Foodborne Viruses: They Are In Your-
Hands;" a reminder that you have.control over reducing
your risk of becoming sick. According to the Centers for
Disease Control (CDC), each year viruses make up more.
than half of foodborne illnesses. Nationwide, most of
the outbreaks occur in restaurants, but many home rela-
ed outbreaks go unreported and often unrecognized as a
foodborne illness. Since Americans eat out often, food ;
safety is an issue to be concerned about both at home
and in public places where food is served.
Norovirus and Hepatitis A are the two most common,
viruses that cause foodborne illness. Both of these are-
highly contagious and have vomiting and diarrhea as
their most common symptoms. Most consumers mistake
these symptoms for a 24 hour flu bug. These viruses can
contaminate any food, but the most common foods are
ready-to-eat foods, such as deli meats, produce and sal-,'
ads. '-s
The FDA Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutri, :
tion recommends you keep your hands as clean as.possi-',
ble. Wash your hands with warm water and soap for at-,
least 20 seconds before and after handling food and after,
using the bathroom, changing diapers and handling ppt_.
When you are preparing food, wash your cutting *
boards, dishes, utensils, and counter tops with hot soapy
water after preparing each food item and before you pr.-^,
pare your next food. USDA Food Safety Education sug-,r
gests use paper towels to clean up kitchen surfaces. If
you use cloth towels, wash them often in hot water cycle,
of your washing machine.

er and it began to grow.
Ignorance is like this thing
called cancer: If allowed to grow,
it'stifles every aspect of a person's
life. And not just that person's ,
life, but it closely affects the lives
of that person's family and even
their friends. Ignorance is alive,
just like cancer. And it grows, just.
like cancer. And the effects of ig-
norance can produce a slow and
agonizing death just like cancer.
I have learned, in my short time
living in Madison, that this com-
munity offers a variety of'free or
nearly free quality services to help
educate and train those that are in
need. Additionally. quality assis-
tance in job placement is available.
But what really drives me up a
wall is when I hear about a free
class that is offered that teaches
someone an excellent trade, that'
provides for free job placement af-
ter the training and even provides ,
a free gasoline card to help the in-
dividual get back and fourth to,
classes AND ONLY FOUR PEO-
PLE SHOW UP TO TAKE THE
CLASS!,
I heard recently in a meeting
that I attended that Madison Coun-


;IPKC~I: 44'.Y:7


ty has over 2000o of the national i.
averagefor poverty. This is our
cancer. And for those of us who
live here, who can read, and who '
can understand the importance of,
training or education in general:.'
it's going to be up to us to take th.-,
horse to the water and if neces-
sary, make it drink!
I ask myself as a citizen of this'
county if we, as a community real-
ize how difficult, if not impossiblj;i
it is going to be to lure good, de- ,Fj
cent paying companies into our
area if we cannot provide them ;'|!
with a decent work force and a de-,
cent infrastructure for living? .,'
Madison County has a cancer .
due to the deplorable state of an :;,
oversized portion of its residents,
We have neighbors, not strangers,,
in a distant land; we have neigh-
bors that suffer from the cancer cf,
ignorance.
I do not have a magic wand, butt,
I promise you this. I will listen-td,;
anyone that comes to me with ah ;';
idea of how this newspaper cand9'
its part to help win this fight.
Because, unlike cancer, IGNO,- .

ine. A report published by the Center fior Dis-

jury Prevention and Control, stated that less
than one percent of all homicides and suicides

the way to or from school, or on the way to school-spon-
sced events.
From 1992 to 1999, more than half of the inci-

thleats, notes, or journal entries that foretold of
the possibility of the coming events.

youth in grades nine through 12,6.5 percent of

bullying are major underlying causes of school violence.
In the NCIPC report, it was made dear that perpetrators
of school associatedhomicides were nine times more
likely to have exhibited suicidalbehavior before the
event, and were twice as likely as victims to have been
bullied by peers.
Adults have the responsibility to set good examples
and educate children on the dangers of bullying and
the consequences of bringing weapons into a school
setting.
No school, in Madison, or anywhere in the world,
should have to install a metal detector or physi-
cally search through a student's belongings.
School related violence has been described as a,
hindrance.to society; education and subsequent,
prevention of school related violence is of ut-
most importance.

Just over six weeks ago, our mother, Delorise Lewis went home to be with the
Lord. The last few days of her life were spent in the MadisOn County Memorial
Hospital. My family and I cannot say enough good things about the very excellent
car6 she received. Dr. Schindler, the nursing staff, the therapists, everyone involved
were extremely competent and caring. They did everything they could to help her,
to keep her comfortable and to accommodate our family as well.
*I would be remiss, however, if I did not comment on the compassionate attitude of
each and every nurse, therapist, aide and doctor. As the end drew near for our pre-
cious mother, they cried with us and for us. What a great.credit they were and are
to the medical community.
'Again, I want to say a special thank you from our family.to the Madison County
Memorial Hospital medical family.
Sincerely,
Clyde Cruce


Reality Versus Perception -


T ee ne Drin g *
Teenage Drinking -


The idea that local teenagers drink
regularly is a myth. The Florida Center
for Prevention Research (FCPR), part-
nered with the Panhandle Area Educa-
tion Consortium (PAEC), conducted a
Teen Norms Survey over a 12-county
area in North Florida at the beginning
of the 2007 spring term to evaluate the
social norms of local high school stu-
dents. The positive results of the survey
will be promoted during the 2007-2008
school year to expose students to their
peers' true attitudes toward teenage al-
cohol use in order to influence even
more healthy behaviors.
The Teen Norms Survey given tb,o stu-
dents was structured to determine actu-
al student behaviors and also what they
perceived to be 'typical' student behav-
iors. The actual students behaviors indi-
cated statistics such as: The majority of
.students has not used alcohol in the last
30 days, prefers to date a non-drinker
and thinks it is wrong for people under
the age of 21 to drink. An overwhehni ng
majority, in the 80 to 90 percent range,
cited that they consume non-alcoholic
drinks when hanging out with,their
friends.
The survey also confirmed that what
students considered 'typical' student be-
havior was far worse than the reality.
Students were inclined to think that
most of their peers were drinking alco-
hol on a regular basis and thought it
was alright for people their age to
drink, Not so. .


"This school year's social norms cam-
paign seeks to correct the mispercep-
tions high schools students have about
what 'everybody is doing,' so that they
are aware their own good habits and
sound judgment are the norm," said
Rick Howell, FCPR's project manager
for this.high school social norms pro-
ject. The common goal of all parties in-
volved in this campaign is to ensure stu-
dents comprehend what their true be-
haviors are in order to effect healthy
changes for our area's youth.
The Florida Center for Prevention Re-
search develops and executes numerous
health care and youth programs
throughout the state. Originally funded
by a portion of a tobacco settlement won
by the State of Florida, FCPR'was estab-
lished in 1998 through Florida State Uni-
versity to support the Florida Tobacco
Pilot Program, aimed at reducing tobac-
co use in Florida's youth. Today, with
the help 6f other state government enti-
ties, FCPR has expanded its mission.
"To provide innovative research, educa-
tion, training, and technological solu-
tions to address the challenges of sub-
stance abuse prevention and other social;
issues among Florida's population."

ber 20.
Church members are
busily making their indi-
vidual crafts that will be
sold in the Country Store.
and of course, the ladies
have been busy this past
sunmer making jams and
jelliesfor folks to ptu-chase
and enjoy.
There will be another
thing this year in the
Country Store that we
have not had in years past.
The church has ordered
beautiful tee shirts, with,
this year's emblem embla-
zoned on the front. This
year. the day will be dedi-
cated to the early history
of the mule, and what
mules meant to early pio-
neers in our community
and the county and state
as well.
Cousin Mary Lou's fa-
mous kitchen will again be


a highlight, cooking early ,'
morning breakfast on two,
wood-burning stoves.
There is always a line to
get these delicious bis-
cuits, filled with country
sausage or delicious ham.
You might just want to put
some cane syrup. made at
Hickory Grove on your bis-
cuit. No matter everything
you eat will taste great.
Elwyn McLeod has
again been diligent in
growing the cane used at
Founder's Day. even with
the extremely hot weather
we have had this summer.
We certainly appreciate El-
wyn's farming ability to
grow great cane, which in
turn. makes great-tasting
syrup. Cane grinding is
certainly a family tradi-
tion at the McLeod house-
near the church.
The folks at Hickory
Grove are always looking
for something new and in-
novative to show the local
folks at Fotuder's Day. and
this year will be no excep-
tion. There is a garden
that is presently being
planted, and if the local.


deer population doesn't eat
the garden, there will be a
vegetable garden, and a
real, live mule will be
plowing in the garden, just
like in the days of old. Our
Grandfathers used to till
the soil with mules for
their home gardens, and
we will be doing the same
thing at Founder's Day 07.
There may be just one
problem with the mule
plowing, and that is to find
someone who has the
nerve to actually plow the
mule in front of folks. --
About the only one we
know is long-time church
member: Aaron Williams.
If we can get him out of
the easy chair long
enough, he and others will
demonstrate this lost art.
No matter what your
fancy, whether it be for
good home-smoked bar-b-
que or home-made ice
cream, or collard greens,,
you will not want to miss
Founder's Day 07 this year:
Everyone is welcome and
we look forward to seeing
all of our friends at
Church.

2 Blessed [is] the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat Of the scornful. But his
delight [is] in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that
bringeth jorth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. -Psalms 1:1-3

By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing. Inc.
On Thursday, July 26.
the top farmers of the re-
gion were honored at the
Southeast Agricultural
Coalition's sixth annual
appreciation awards ban-
quet. A local farm took
one of the top awards at
the banquet.
McCulley Farms won
Farmer of the Year Less
than 1.000 Acres Award.
The farm. located just
over the county line in
Hamilton County is .
owned and operated by
T.C. and Richard McCul-
ley. The father and son
team run a farm that oc-
cupies about 400 acres of
beautiful land.
John Wester presented
the award to the McCul-
leys, and he praised them


for their ability to adapt
to the changing tides and
keep from selling out.
McCulley Farms has
been faced with drought
and being small, but they
have remained stable, in-
novative, and able.
McCulley Farms pro-
lduces both coastal and
bahia grass hay, runs a
herd of 125 cattle, and op-
erates an agritourism
business. At one time.
the McCulleys operated a
chicken farm. The re-
maining chicken houses
are used in a variety of
ways -including use as
horse stalls, hay silos,
and an entertainment
stage.
McCulley Farms is
probably best known for
their Withlacoochee
Trail Ride, held in mid


October and mid March.
The weekend long event
plays host to a 5000-acre
ride through the most
pristine forests in North
Florida, meals, and fami-
ly shows.
T.C. is married to .
Wimpy, and their s-on.
Richard. is responsible
for running McCull,.y
Farms. Richard is mar-
ried to Carol. They have
two children, Justin and
Candice. and one grand-
child. Hunter.
Richard McCullev ,said
that he was "quite lion-
ored" to be recognized as
the Farmer of the Year
Less than 1,000 Acres.
His farm and his family
have made do through
the years to create a pros-
pering business that ha.s
become their way of life.

Open Forum Meeting Held

At Madison Farm Bureau1


The Madison County
Farm Bureau recently
sponsored an "open fo-
rum" meeting with Con-
gressional aides from
Senator Bill Nelson, Sena-
tor Mel Martinez, Con-
gressman Allen Boyd and
Congressman Ander
Crenshaw.
The purpose of the
meeting was to discuss
the disaster Declaration
for Livestock Producers
in Madison, Taylor and
N.Lafayette counties. De-
wayne Leslie,- Chairman
of the local Farm Service
S Agency Committee, said
there is a possibility that
-'. the three counties would
be left out of the Disaster
Program for the 2007 year.
The three affected
counties have been hit
hard by the lack of rain
during the spring and ear-
ly summer, and as a re-
(photo submitted) sult, very little hay has
D., and Wimpy been stored for the up-
coming winter. It has also
Been really difficult for lo-
cal cattle producers to

S Besides timber produc-
tion, the cattle industry is
perhaps the largest-farm-

three affected counties,

New Fertilizer Rule Will Protect

Florida's Water Quality
Rule brings added benefits to Everglades restoration


LAKE OKEECHOBEE -
The Florida Department
of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services today /
adopted the final
statewide Urban Turf Fer-
tilier Rule. The rule lim-
i stllhe phosphorus and ni-
tr0gen content in fertiliz-
erifor urban turf and
lawns, significantly reduc-
iAg the amount of nitro-
gen and phosphorus ap-
plied in urban areas and
limiting the amount of
those compounds reach-
ing Florida's water re-
sources, including Flori-
da's Liquid Heart, Lake
Okeechobee.
"We are committed to
protecting Florida's water
resources." Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer
Services (DACS) Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson
said. "'By establishing re-
sponsible nitrogen and
phosphorus use rates
statewide, Florida's citi-
zens can continue to care
for.their lawns and land-
scapes without sacrificing
water quality."
DACS expects. a 20 to 25
percent reduction in ni-
trogen and a 15 percent
reduction in phosphorus
in every bag of fertilizer
sold to the public. The --
new rule requires that all
fertilizer products labeled
for use on urban turf,
sports turf and lawns be
limited to the amount of
nitrogen and phosphorus
needed to support healthy
turf maintenance. It was
developed by the Florida
Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Ser-
vices with input from the
University of Florida's In-
stitute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences, the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protec-
tion, the state's five water
management districts, the
Florida League of Cities,
Florida Association of
Counties, fertilizer manu-
facturers and concerned
citizens.
I "Implementation of the
new fertilizer rule is vital
to Florida's continuous ef-
forts to protect our water
andiwill especially be ben-
eficial to Lake Okee-
chobee and the estuaries'
water quality through
source control," said
Florida Department of '
Environmental Protection
(DJEP) Secretary Michael
W. Sole. "The new rule
Will enhance land man-
agement practices, im-
prove water quality and
protect the health of the
Southeast's largest lake
and America's Ever-
glades."
I -As a component of the


$200 million Lake Okee-
chobee and Estuary Re-
covery (LOER) Plan, the
new rule is an essential
component to improve nu-
trient control through a
statewide approach based
on sound science and the
best-available technology.
Water managers will con-
tinue to research nutrient
application rates to refine
the limits and ensure
healthy turf while at the
same time minimizing the
impact of urban land use
on the environment.
Launched in 2005, LOER
is expanding water stor-
age areas, constructing
treatment marshes and
expediting environmental
management initiatives to
enhance the ecological
health of the lake and
downstream coastal estu-
aries.
"This rule compliments
the numerous efforts that
are currently tuiderway to'


address excess nutrients
in the Northern and
Southern Everglades,"
said South Florida Water
Management District
(SFWMD) Executive Di-
rector Carol Wehle. "We
look forward to working
with the Departments of
Agriculture and Environ-,
mental Protection as we
expand our efforts, inte-
grate new technology, and
achieve this important
undertaking."
Since the 2000 Florida
Legislature passed the
Lake Okeechobee Protec-
tion Act, DACS, DEP and
SFWMD, working with lo-
cal governments,
landowners and the feder-


al partners, have reached
notable milestones to re-
store the lake and its trib-
utaries:
Adopting a Lake Okee-
chobee Total Maximum
Daily Load (TMDL) to
achieve phosphorus re-
ductions
Constructing the Tay-
lor Creek and Nubbin
Slough Stormwater Treat-
ment Areas in partner-
ship with the federal gov-
ernment
Completing conserva-
tion and nutrient manage-
ment plans for over
400,000 acres of agricul-
tural lands in the water-
shed
Investing $7.5 million
in individual projects to
reduce phosphorus from
dairy farms, restore iso-
lated wetlands, treat ur-
ban stormwater and en-
hance water storage and
habitat on ranchlands
Treating more than
32,000 acres of exotic and
invasive vegetation
Restoring America's
Everglades is reviving
habitat for more than 60
threatened and endan-
gered species, establish-
ing a reliable supply of
water for millions of
Floridians and providing
flood control consistent
with, the restoration. To
date, Florida has invested
more than $2 billion to re-
store and preserve Ameri-
ca's Everglades and $140
million.to improve the
.health of Lake Okee-
chobee. For more informa-
tion visit
www.dep.state.fl. us/evergl
adesforever.
Floridians can help
protect water quality
through proper applica-
tion of fertilizer. When
fertilizer is over applied
to landscapes, it seeps
past the root zone of the
grass, shrubs or trees and
into the aquifer or runs
off into water bodies
which residents, plants
and animals depend on,
for clean water. Floridians
should fertilize plants
only to maintain health
and should not exceed rec-
ommended amounts. For
