- The Fast Track Travel Center, located at

open spring 2008. This reopening certain-

building back in place though. It repre-

lion of cooperation between business,
community and government.

The Gator Quarterback, A GBI Agent And A

First Lady, And Trying To Pawn False Teeth

This past
week has
been a trial
for me. Last
my father v f
fell and .
broke his
hip. We had
to rush him to the VA Hospital in Lake
City and, from there, he was transport-
ed by ambulance to.the VA Hospital in
Gainesville. Surgery was scheduled for
My brother, sister and I left for
Gainesville at 2:30 a.m. Tuesday and ar-
rived in Gainesville at about 4 a.m. The
surgeons begin their operations, at 6
a..m. and they did not have a time my fa-
ther was scheduled. At about 11 a.m.,
my father was taken in to begin surgery
At about 1 p.m., my family was told that
surgery was just beginning. Someone
had been ahead of my father and the
surgery had taken longer than expected.
At approximately 4 p.m., the surgeon
came out and told us that the surgery
had gone well and that we should be able
to see him in 30 minutes.
Thirty minutes came and went. Then
an hour. Another hour. Still another
hour. Finally, we got to see him at about
7 p.m. He was still woozy from the drugs
and anesthesia.
During the waiting time, I believe
that my sister Abbie was bored and wor-
ried. At least, she was able to sleep
through the storm. My brother Danny
and I were awake and exhausted. Dur-
ing the time, however, I was regaled
with stories from two of my uncles and
others in the waiting room. During my
stay in Gainesville, I discovered you can,
find some interesting things out.' How
many of these rumors are true, I don't
know, but they tickled my funny bone
and I needed it during the trial I was go-
ing through.
The first thing I heard was on Friday
while eating lunch in the canteen at the

rnTwo Gator
fans (and
"M . they were
lacob Bembry Gator fans)
were talking
olurmnijst about the
game be-
tween LSU
and Florida.
They were expecting victory but they
did have some concerns about the rela-
tionship between Coach Urban Myer
and uber-quarterback Tim Tebow. They
were concerned that Tebow and Meyer
might like ch other better than they
like girls. Lt I said, I don't know if it's
true but Ga r fans were talking about
it. I figure fhat's the difference. They
will probably kill my beloved Seminoles
in November anyway, even if they show
up at the game with Tebow dressed as a
Another thing I heard involved a for-,
mer First Lady, who was married to a
Democratic president not named Bill. A
woman from Lake City or Macclenny
(somewhere east of 'here) said that she
had been at a conference in another
state and had been told by a former state
police agent assigned to the state capitol
when the former president was a gover-
nor that the First Lady had an affair
with a captain in the state's highway pa-
trol. The agent said that the First Lady
was young and beautiful at the time and
he was jealous because it was riot him,
but the state trooper who was the object
of her affections.
The funniest thing I heard and I think
I may believe this involved a former co-
worker of mine who went in a barber-
shop in Lee one day and tried to pawn
his false teeth. Knowing the guy, I can
believe it and believe that he was dead
serious about trying to pawn his false
teeth. I am still laughing about it and
probably will every time I see the guy's
face in my mind and an earnest expres-
sion on his face as he tries to negotiate a
price. God rest his soul.

Dear Editor:
On behalf of Big Bend Hospice, I ex-
tend our special thanks to our spiritual
leaders, both employees of our organiza-
tion and those in the communities we
serve. Spiritual leaders are essential
partners in helping hospice fulfill our
mission of providing compassionate care
to those who are dying. Each year, Big
Bend Hospice provides more than 110,000
days of care to patients and families fac-
ing the end of life. The wonderful men
and women of faith greatly enhance and
support compassionate physical care by
dealing with the spiritual issues that can
cause pain or bring peace at life's end. A
family's clergy is, often the first person
they turn to when facing a terminal diag-
nosis. I thank our religious leaders for
opening the difficult discussions that so
many families need to have about end of
life care. ..
Each quarter our spiritual care de-
partment sponsors "Breaking Bread"


watching and riding
horses," says developer
Buddy Witmer of Witmer
Realty, 'but the other fea-
tures that really stand
out are the location,
paved roads, under-
ground utilities and spa-
cious lots."
Loper Pond Plantation
is a partnership between
James and Pat Coleburn
of Coleburn Enterprises
and Witmer. "I can't say
enough about the Cole-
burns' contribution.
Their expertise has
meant so much to the
project and their friend-
ship has meant so much
to me," Witmer added.
Consisting of 27 lots,
Phase I will be followed
by a larger Phase II. A
third phase is also in-
tended, although the
completed subdivision,
"will definitely maintain
the flavor its name has
come to symbolize."

nature groomed around a
landscaped neighbor-
hood possessing only the
finest amenities and you
can imagine Loper Pond

I wrote my first new column in last Fri-
dhy's edition of the Enterprise Recorder.
I've had some folks call me or tell me that
they enjoyed reading it and are ready for
more. Some also asked that I repeat some of
tlieir past favorites, which I plan to do from
time to time.
Garage sales were plenty in the area
this past weekend. I think we hit just about
all of them. We are addicted to garage sale-
'irg and flea markets. My brother says we
nbed to stop because i'm collecting too
niuch clutter. It's really not necessary to
buy everything we don't need just because
itis a real bargain.
He says only buy things we really need,
bpt we always have and probably always
will keep on doing it. My husband Kevin
and I, along with his brother, Leonard, and
his wife, Jan, know how much fun it is to
1kad up in the truck, sometimes even with
t'e trailer in tow, and head south on a sale--
irig tour. Sometimes it's a long day trip
sometimes an'overnighter. With the four of
uS older adults going through our mid-life
crisis, just getting in the same vehicle and
acting like kids again, we can have a blast.
These trips can be hectic, tiring,
serious, and just plain fun. Treasure
hunts, shopping trips, or just a drive with-
out a specific place to go.
Sometimes we surprise ourselves. We
head down Hwy 19 to New Port Richey,
Which is a four hour trip, although it has
taken us six to eight on occasions, stopping
fqr every cardboard sale sign we see on the
right or left side of the road. Now, anyone
who has ever experienced driving on Hwy.
19 from Perry to Tampa, knows just how
crazy it is driving.
Being the daredevils we are, we can be
cruising along 60 mph if there is some-
thling lying on the side of the road like
btingee straps, gas cans, coolers, tools,
chains, or anything usable is of value to
u and we're gonna stop to pick it up. Then
s mebody sees a sign and yells "Sale," Pic-
ture us now, slamming on the brakes-no
signal-make a quick turn-both car and
Uh Oh, signs on the left, we're in the
far right lane-that's OK-hold on we're cut-
ting across three lanes of traffic to get
there- horns blowing, brakes squealing.
: We say sorry we're Sale-ing -Oops we

missed it-that's OK, go up
one intersection and hang a
U-turn-then get over to that
right turning lane quickly-
We did it. Now, did anybody
get that address-Nope-well
there will be more signs up
here-yep, go right, no ar-
row's pointing left.
There it is! What do they
have that we can't live with-
KnOW out, lots of stuff. Kevin has
Been never paid anybody what
they were asking -he always
Miller talks people down. Done
mist here, back to the highway
looking for the next sign. We
have concluded that if it's a big sign it's a
small sale, little sign means big sale. Sure
enough there: it is, we're off the beaten
path again sometimes we go three to five
miles off the main road looking for trea-
sures sometimes it's just junk, or. it's:
closed, or we never find the sale. Now Jan,
she always has to buy something just to
make that last death defying trip to get
there is worth it.
There have been a few occasions when
our children came along for the thrill of it.
At these times we sometimes had a convoy,
of three or so cars. The kids were good
about keeping in tow real close so they
wouldn't lose us. It was funny how they fol-
lowed us. If we missed a sign, they'd stick
with us on the turn around. I remember
once we had a convoy of three cars and
Kevin entered a parking lot because we
missed a sale and went around in a cookie
style turnabout. The kids followed us, as
we went around and round
three or four times waving at each other as
we passed. Oh, how we laughed until we
cried seeing the tads just following us
around this circle as if we were dancing.
Then pulled out and continued our trip.
The next time we stopped I asked my
son Kevin how many more times he would
of followed us around. He said about one
more and then he was gonna stop. All in
fun it breaks up the monotony in our life.
Oh yes, we do find lots of treasures, junk,
furniture, or just exactly what we were
looking for at a fraction of the cost. One
man's junk is another man's treasure.
For us it's a passion and a pleasure. A
few times we have returned home with
stuff piled and balanced so high on Kevin's
truck that we looked like the Beverly Hill-
Auctions are another favorite pastime
of ours. From cars to animals to just plain
junk. We hardly ever go to auctions for any-
thing specific, it's just something to do with
our time. Do we ever buy anything? Well, of
course we do. Flea markets and second
hand shops are fun too.
We are like kids in a candy store.
I hope everyone enjoys reading this
weekly column. If anyone wants to get

baby or any other news to share, com-
plaints, or comments, please feel free to call

ance at the Elks Lodge, they've learned more material and
added new originals, even picking up a female vocalist
along the way. Callie Buchanan, the newest addition to the
band has opened the guys up to new musical possibilities.
She'll be jamming out with Reckless Reality on a few songs.
According to Dan, the concert at the Elks Lodge is going
to be "the same blowout, just better." Since they boys last
graced Madison, with their skills, they've hit the charts on
Gulf 104.1 Homegrown.
Reckless Reality remained number one for five Weeks,
before the whole show was pulled from the air which was
a bit of a blow to all the bands involved. Reckless Reality's
humble beginning in Arlen's barn has grown since then,
into a determined band willing to go the extra mile for their
music, possibly'even breaking into the scene in Tallahassee
and Valdosta..
The cost of admission at the October 13 Elks Lodge con-
cert is only $5. See you there!

"I look for tools.
Like a lawn sweeper,

reference to a transient. Ag-

Landacre said that his driver's license was stolen in
Louisiana and added that he didn't know his social securi-
ty number. Landacre said that his name was Michael A.
Johnson, and that he was born on December 5, 1955.
Agner ran his information through state and national
databases, and finding no record of Michael A. Johnson
with that date of birth, he again questioned Landacre.
Landacre then acquiesced, and admitted that his name
was Michael A. Landacre, and he was born on December 7,

Agner arrested Landacre for giving false identification
to a law enforcement officer, and transported the man to

Bear," a name that wasn't
near mean enough, but it
was the first thing that
came to mind.
'Cause, you see, in these
parts, folks really don't
call you by your real name;
they call you by your alias,
even if it happens to be, a
nickname you picked up at
a high school party
(Present day) It had
been quite a spell since I
allowed myself the indul-
gence of participating in
"make believe." I thought,
"I'm too old for such silli-
ness". But at the gentle
persuasion of a close
friend, I decided to let my
hair down (that's a joke)
and let myself get en-
veloped in playing "cow-
boy" for a day.

The day began before
sunrise. As I made myself
ready to get into costume, I
wondered if what I had put
together to wear would fit
the bill. I put on my long
sleeve shirt, jeans, boots, a
generic black belt with
large buckle, and a sur-
vivor hat that I had bought
to keep my head warm.
And, as I looked in the
mirror, to my surprise,
"not bad" I thought.
There's likely some ,,cow-
boy in most of us.
I arrived at the Beall's
"Bar BS Ranch" in Pinetta
a bit early and as I ap-
proached the bunkhouse I
couldn't believe my eyes.
Walking out the door
was my friend Barry, but
he had been almost magi-
cally transformed into a
gentleman of another era.
"Doc Bear" stood be-
fore me displaying a look
that would have made
Gene Autry William Hold-
en or "The Duke" proud.
From his hat to his twin .45
single action pistols, to the
garters that held up his
sleeves, it became obvious
that I was now in the pres-
ence of "Doc Bear."
Members of the "With-
lacoochee Renegades" rep-

resent the local club affili-
ated with the national or-
ganization known as
SASS. The acronym
stands for Single Action
Shooting Society Its loeal
membership gets together
the last Saturday of each
month, weather permit-
ting, to target shoot and to
play the roles of Cowboys
of the old, west.
The action takes place
at the mythical Esther-
brook Gulch, located on
the property of Shelly and
Esther Decker in northern
Madison County.
The Deckers, along
with members of the club,
have constructed a facade
of storefronts that resem-
ble a town in the old west,
complete with the two sto-
ry Napoleon Hotel and So-
cial Club, the Tallokas Liv-
ery, and of course, the Dix-
ie Lilly Saloon.
Before each competi-
tion, the host reads a script
designed to let the shoot-
ers know what is about to
take place. .During the'
reading, the script sets the
stage from beginning to
,end of where you are,
where you're from, how
you got into this mess, the
number of bad guys (tar-
gets), where they are locat-
ed, and- which firearm
must be used to eliminate
each bad guy To add even
more to the realism, it's
common that the shooter
be given lines to say, be-
fore, during, and at the
conclusion of the shoot;
lines like: "And all I want-
ed was a room" or
"Shucks, it are a double
The drama played out
can be completed in as
short a time as it takes to
shoot five -rounds, or as
long as it takes to empty

rotounds each), ten rounds
from a rifle, and a couple of
quick blast for a double
barrel scatter gun. And
each and every firearm,
along with its ammuni-
tion, is as era authentic as,

pleasure of meeting the fa-

"Paledrifter Wales" and
"Snake Canyon". And for
those who can't figure out
"Paledrifter's" name,
think of Clint Eastwood
One of the things that I
enjoyed the most .was lis-
tening to the cowboys ex-
plain how they got their
aliases. "J.H. Barrie" was
a real time cowboy who
died back in the 1870's.
Seems he got into an argu-
ment with a woman of ill
repute about the cost of
her favors, and by golly,
she cut him "from end to
And, "Doc Bear" was
the grandfather of one of
the cowboys and he chose
that name out of respect
for the man. And then,
there's the "Tallokas Kid",
a cowboy that named him-
self after the town of Tal-
lokas, a small town that
existed just north of Quin-
cy in the 1880's. But today,
neither the town nor the
cowboy are still with us.

that the livery stable in

well within the "Withla-

friendships are sincere,
safety is paramount, and
each shoot ends at the Es-

with the kind of vittles
that made this writer long
for more.
I told my fifteen year
old son, Travis, how much
I enjoyed being with the
Renegades and he in-
formed me that this is
something that he'd like to

Real Life United Way Story
L L "* f

In her own words...
Known to my father as "Daddy's Boy", every day of my life, I was punched, hit.
kicked, beaten, burned, shaken, or harassed, and emotionally, verbally or men-
tally abused. Shortly after I "escaped" the situation into adulthood. I made the
same grim mistake as my mother did, and married a man exactly like my fa-
ther. As soon as I realized what was happening, I knew that I had to get help
to get out of the situation.
Young, uneducated and poor, with not a penny to my name, I was pregnant
with no place to go. There was no way that I was going to let that man do to
my child the things that my father did to me. That is when I discovered the
Refuge House and all that it has to offer. The Refuge house is a United Way ,-
agency that offers assistance for victims of domestic and sexual violence, in-
cluding safe shelter and a 24-hour crises hotline.
Violence poses a serious threat to women's lives across the nation. Two to
four million women a year are battered and domestic violence is the leading
cause of injury to women aged 15 to 44. Sexual violence is the most rapid-
ly growing violent crime in America. Over 700,000 women a year, or
about 1 woman every 1.3 minutes, are victims of sexual violence. ....
Among female victims, 61% are under age 18.
It could be your daughter, sister or granddaughter, son or grand-
son that is caught in an abusive situation that they feel they can't get
out of and you might never know it. Those inflicting the abuse /
know exactly how to silence their victims.
Wouldn't you like to know if this happened to a dear loved one or
friend of yours, that there was a place they could go that was safe '/
and secure? That place is the Refuge House, a United Way Agency j
As a child the only real positive influence in my life was the
Girl Scouts, which instilled leadership, strong values, social con-
science, and conviction about potential and self-worth in me. To- I
day, I know that the Girl Scouts of the USA, the world's preemi- '
nent organization dedicated solely to girls-all girls, instilled in t .
Sme the qualities that led me into a lifelong learning experience
where I have achieved my every goal and literally achieved my
dreams. I went to college later than most, but with assistance, I
not only achieved one degree, but multiple. Today, I continue to
further my education. I
Those qualities gave me the courage to be the first to approach "
the United States Military of all branches of service to create and
publish a "purple" Military Spouse Publication to the benefit of
Military Spouses, regardless of military members rank, as the
champion for the community, empowering the spouse to be strong .
and independent, addressing the unique needs and interests of
over 1.5 million spouses of active duty and reserve troops. This
publication was an answer to my dreams as I traveled worldwide
speaking and teaching seminars and served as a military liaison, tes- _ "
tifying on Capital Hill concerning issues facing military spouses
worldwide. I received multiple honors from all branches of the United States Military for contributing to the
overall Family Readiness of the United States Military To this day, I contribute my success to the accepting and
nurturing environment of the Girl Scouts, a United Way Agency that allowed me to build character and skills for
success in the real world.
Nine years ago, after I was back on my own two feet with a successful career, I felt a need to take a child out of
a very bad situation and adopt her. During the adoption process, she was in a horrific auto accident with her bi-
ological mother, who had temporary visitation. Not one child had seatbelts on and the little girl that was soon to
join my family, along with her two sisters, died in that auto accident.
United Way programs such as, The B.E.S.T Project and the Whole Child Projects in Madison County, as well as
Early Learning Coalition, Kids Incorporated and the Refuge House assist mothers and children in need, includ-
ing childhood development tools, to ensure that every child has the best start in life.
Other United Way agencies such as Big Bend Hospice Remembrance Tree assists me every year in remem-
bering my little angel and in getting through the holidays.
Only three years ago Daddy was on his deathbed and hours before my daddy died he turned to me arid told me
he loved me for the first time. As the tough "Daddy's Boy" that I was, I did not return my love to him.
A few hours later he slipped into a coma. Devastated that I never made peace with my father and under the di-
rection of Hospice, he was placed on life support until all of the children could get there to say goodbye. During
this time, I was overcome with a wide range of emotions.. He WAS my daddy so there was sadness of his passing
and depression. But there was also extreme anger for althat he had done. I had not come to peace with him
while he was awake.
The Hospice Team let me know that it was alright to hlve a wide range of emotions and that they had to be ad-
dressed in what ever way allowed me get through the pain. She suggested that everyone else step out and allow
me to tell him exactly how I feel. I let Daddy know that he was wrong about me and that I had become a success-
ful businesswoman and that all the pain he put me through only made me stronger. For the first time, I was able
to release over 30 years of hatred and pain.
The mission of Big Bend Hospice is to provide compassionate care to individuals with a terminal illness, com-
fort to their families and emotional support to anyone who has lost a loved one. As much as we can't stand to
think about it, every community loses our beloved children and teens to auto accidents and illness each year. Big
Bend Hospice offers Grief Support for Children and Teens, as well as Hope for the Holidays, workshops about
grief as well as activities and strategies for coping with the stress of the holidays and so much more.
The local United Way funds help make Big Bend Hospice Possible. If there would have been a Refuge House
when I was a child, there is no doubt that my mom would have known that there was an out and that there was
someone.there for her and a SAFE place where she could take her children. There is no doubt in my mind that
she would have rescued us from all that pain.
Big Bend Hospice helped my Daddy die with dignity regardless of his sins, and assisted me with finding a way
through my anger to be able to at least say goodbye.
My 10 year old son is a heart patient, born with a severe heart defect and has had numerous open-heart surg-
eries. We have been blessed with the best medical care in his life and have had the blessing of our son enjoying a
normal life. It is now time for my son to have his next heart surgery I feel assured that God will lead us through
this surgery as he has through each one before. I also feel assured that should I need to reach out for assistance
in any way, my United Way Family will be there for me.

Printed Newspapers Are Easily The Primary

Source Of News And Advertising In Florida

Two thirds of all Florida adults who use any adverL
tising say newspapers are their primarily source of lo-
cal sales and shopping information, true of all groups
across the state.
Newspapers are also the primary source of advertis-
ing for a wide variety of products and services, rang-
ing from, major appliances to local entertainment.
In addition:
Newspaper readership is strong in Florida; in fact,
stronger than'in other areas across the nation
More than eight in 10 (82%) read a newspaper dur-
ing an average 7-day week, equal to more than 10.2 mil-
lion adults
Public notice advertising is also important to Flori-
da adults.
Most adults have seen public notice or legal adver-
tising. In addition; the vast majority of adults say
keeping the public informed through legal notices is
not only wise, but beneficial.
Printed newspapers are the most used source of
public notices, and, if moved online, almost two thirds
of adults say they would read them less often.
These are just some of the findings of a research
study conducted for the Florida Press Association by
American Opinion Research (AOR), based in Prince-
ton, NJ.

These results are based on interviews with 1,000
Florida residents age 18 and older across the state.
These results have a margin of error of plus or mi-
nus 3.2 percent.

Printed newspapers are clearly the primary source
of news and advertising in Florida. As shown in the
adjoining chart, two-thirds of all Floridians who use
any advertising say newspapers are their primary
source of local sales and shopping information.
This is true even among younger adults; 47 percent
of Floridians between the ages of 18 and 29 say news-
papers are their primary source compared with 19 per-
cent who choose the Internet,. which ranked second
among this group
Newspapers rate even stronger among all other age
groups Newspapers are also the single most relied on
source of local news and information. Television rates

second, but is generally very fragmented.
As shown in the adjoining chart, newspapers are the
primary source of advertising information Florida
consumers turn to first for a wide variety of products
and services, including:
Major appliances
Real estate
Jobs and employment
Local entertainment, places to go and things to do

Groceries, jobs and local entertainment are particu-
larly strong for newspapers, with six in 10 consumers
or more saying newspapers are their primary source.

Clearly, the Internet is a growing factor, particularly
when it comes to:
Major appliances
Real estate
However, Internet sources tend to be fragmented and
newspapers still rate No. 1 in all these categories.

Florida adults are avid newspaper readers; in fact,
readership is stronger in Florida than across the na-
Almost six in 10 adults (55%) read a printed news-
paper on an average weekday, higher than the national
average of 52 percent
Three in four (75%) read during an average week,
Monday through Friday, also called 5-day cume
Almost two-thirds (65%) read on an average Sun-
day, higher than the national average of 61 percent
More than eight in 10 (82%) read a newspaper dur-
ing an average 7-day week, equal to more than 10.2 mil-
lion adults. Almost nine in 10 (86%) read either a daily
or weekly newspaper during an average week, about 11
million adults who read weekly.
In addition, 40 percent of Florida newspaper readers
read two or more different newspaper during an aver-
age week; that's two or more different newspapers, not
two or more editions of the same newspaper.

Readership is strong among all groups in Florida.
Even among the youngest adults (age 18 to 24) seven in
10 adults read a newspaper Monday through Friday
and more than four in 10 read on an average weekday
African-Americans and adults of Hispanic ances-
try read daily and Sunday newspapers in about the
same percentages as Whites; however, they are less fre-
quent readers.
As shown in the adjoining chart, almost six in 10
Floridians read a weekly or community newspaper;
more than four in 10 read on an average week; this is
equal to more than 5.9 million adults.
Weekly newspaper readership is high among all de-
Iographic groups, even among the youngest adults,
age 18 to 24

Having the ability to access public notices is impor-
tant to Florida adults.
In addition, as shown in the above chart, almost
nine in 10 adults say keeping the public informed
through public notices is wise and beneficial. This is
true of all other types of adults across the state.
In addition, these ads are well read; almost nine in
10 Florida adults who have ever seen public notice ad-
vertising or legal advertising (89%) say they have actu-
ally read these ads, true even of younger adults and
upper income households.
This is equal to:
53 percent of all Florida adults, who have actually
read public service, or legal advertising
Floridians who have seen public notice advertising
are more likely to prefer daily or Sunday newspapers
than any other media as a source for these ads
Public notices in newspapers are also viewed as
more credible, particularly among those adults who
have actually read legal ads
One in five adults (20%) said they would read pub-
lic notices less often if they were eliminated from
newspapers and put online; almost half (45%) would
read them much less often, a total of 64 percent who
would read less often.
Adults who have read public notices or legal ads
would be even less likely to read ads online. About one
in five Florida adults have ever looked for public no-
tices or legal ads online.

Happenings At Madison First Baptist Church

By Nell Dobbs
What exciting and interesting days and times and happenings!
Weddings: Lesley Ann Putnal and Sid Bontrager's beautiful one on
Saturday. October 6. outdoors at the Mansion in between rain showers.
Preacher Quackenbush asked God for no rain for 32 minutes-prayer an-
swered-and longer. We pray a long life for then, serving the Lord and
loving each other and Him and all others. Bless their family It was neat
how he poured sand and powdered sand into a container: meaning they
are now one.
The 77th wedding anniversary on October 12 for William., 98, and Lil-
lian Colson, 95, of Steuben. Maine, able to be home together with her
caring for him, both believers, with church people checking on them
and helping as needed, as well as family. He was the oldest fellow on
their LS71027. This week is reunion in San Francisco and we're sorry
to miss it. We visited them the year after we married and lived in Penn-
sylvania Then later, they visited us and Lillian and Mother enjoyed
Reunions: Agner Pulliam Reunion Sunday October 7. at Rocky, Tina
and Trista Agner's beautiful place-usually held at Mildred's-the Agner
homeplace of our granddad John Lewis Agner and grandmother. Bar-
bara Isabel Stephens Agner. A wonderful time with only a light show-
er and we were able to stay outside. Rocky asked his preacher uncle.
Carroll Agner. to give thanks and to pray for our service people. He
served in the Army and went through the Battle of the Bulge Several
others have also served: Wilbur Pulliam. Jim Pulliam. C.D. Agner. Jim-
my DLxon. Wayne Rehberg. Paul Agner, James Agner. Willie Agner.
Gene Ponder and our special guests, both Bill and Ann McLeod in the
Air Force (she retired as a colonel). Continued prayers of comfort for
them in the recent loss of his mother, Lillian.
Also pray for the Arnold Haire family in the death of her mother:
Mrs. Leola Sapp and for all other sad ones. Beautiful flowers were pro-
vided Stunday by Eddie Bell in loving memory of his nephew. Scott
Preacher and Mrs. Heard had an unexpected family reunion in Mis-
sissippi as they had gone for the 175th celebration of his church. His
family had planned a reunion on Sunday night. They were so pleased
at this unexpected happening. with all of them being together.
Martha Beggs presented Brooke Joiner a pin for six years of perfect
attendance in Sunday School and Ashlyn Rogers a pin for one year of
perfect attendance.
Amy Robinson blessed us singing a medley Ashley Beggs gave the
offertory prayer. Chancel Choir sang, "Great, Great Morning." Preach-
er Bobby Tolar gave both messages. Instead of having his outline in the
back of otu- prayer list, he chose to have the 2007 Hunger Awareness Of-
fering Bright Hope for Tomorrow" calendar printed. Very neat sugges-
tions for helping provide food such as 10 cents for every U.S. citizen in
your family, the price of a loaf of bread. 25 cents because a billion peo-
ple lack basic food needs and on and on it goes. Since we have plenty.

we are commanded to divide with the hungry.
Judy Phillips gave Pastor's Search Committee Report. This Sunday.
October 14, our Sunday School Director Dan Campbell is encouraging
us to extend invitations for all to come to Sunday School. Judy is speak-
ing about their Friendship Class and also our Dorcas Mary Martha
class taught by Debbie Bass. She asked who our favorite school teacher
was and said her four grade teacher was her favorite because she en-
couraged her to use her talent of creative writing. Mildred Bruner said
her dad. She could read when she started school. Idumna Smith said her
fourth grade teacher, Mr. Newburn. I said of all of mine-with only Mrs.
Audrey Leslie and Mrs. Elizabeth Hinton still living-I believe Mrs.
Mary Davis, my fifth grade teacher began the Dorcas Class and Mrs.
Nellie Cantey. my fourth grade teacher, was a member Cousin Eunice
Calhoun. my seventh grade teacher, taught about friendship, too.
Preacher Tolar's morning message was "The Rebel Who Roamed"
and was most informative. I'd never heard the older son received more
because he was to care for their mother and sisters and the joy that
came for the son to come to his senses and go home. I was sorry to miss
the night message. "The Rebel Who Stayed Home."
Opportunities: so very thankful to have exceeded our' Maguire State
Mission Offering by $453.00. My Stetson roommate. Clarise Murphy of
Jacksonville, was secretary to him before we went to Stetson in 1952.
To fill rice bowls for the hungry...
To fill Christmas shoeboxes...
To give to pregnancy center...
To walk to remember those who've lost a baby..
To give bags of candy for the Awana Fall Festival at Tom and Debbie
Copeland's home. Sunday, Octobr 28. from 4-5:45 p.m.
Senior Adult Choir sang at Lake Park on Tuesday and Marjell and I
were able to go and be blessed.
This Sunday, in morning service, the new deacons will be ordained:
Bill Brown, Dennis DeHart. Doug Finney, Andrew Robinson and Dan
Monday. October 15, the Annual Association meeting will be at Mayo
Baptist at 4 p.m. On Tuesday; will be at Elizabeth Baptist at 4 p.m. -
Tuesday, the 16th. there will be a shower for William Hamrick and
Billye Thompson, from 4:30-5:30 p.m.
Continued happy birthday blessings to Tonja Davis, October 7; Ben
Bass and Edwin Browning. October 8: Kyndell Browning, October 9;
Mattie Ann Barnes. October 10: Justin Hamrick, October 12: Bernard
Wilson. October 12: Nathan Kendrick, October 13: Joseph cruce. Ren
Davis and Hazel Woodard. all on October 15.
Pray for all the very ill ones: Mary Bunting. Al Spurlock, Jim and
Laura Pulliam and her very ill brother in Kansas and them as they
travel to see him. Al Spurlock and Teresa Gallegos are preparing for
surgery on October 15.
May the Lord bless us as we live the way Jesus wants to.




Dayog Set For

October 20th
By Dan Buchanan
There are only a few
short weeks left until the.
"event of the year" hapl
pens at Hickory Grove,
and that is, of course,
Founder's Day 07. Things
are coming together and
the folks at the church,
are working every Satur-
day, getting ready for the,
folks to come and enjoy a-
day in the Country
The cane is growing at
Elwyn's house, and when
you read this article, a
few rounds of delightful-
ly good tasting syrup will
have already been made.
Elwyn and his crew will
cook for at least three Sat-
urdays leading up to Oc-
tober 20, so enough syrup
will be available for you
to purchase.
And, by the way, the.
garden is growing really
good, and you will have a
chance to see a mule
plowing at Founder's Day
this year, just like in the
old days when our grand.
fathers and great-grand-'
fathers used to farm with
mules. There were no
tractors 75 years ago, but,
farming was still a huge
industry, and the mules
were a major part of oui
early American Heritagb.
So, mark your calen-
dars, and plan to be at
Hickory Grove on Octo-
ber 20 to taste, smell and
feel things from past
years. You will certainly
get a blessing by attend-

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
:Y 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 forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither: and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. -Psahns 1:1-3

Whether you. are a fi-i-st-thne home buyer or a bor-
rower who hopes to refinance an expensive loan.. you
will serve yourself well if you start your loan search
at a local bank.
Much has been written about the turmoil in the
subprime mortgage market, and consuiners may un-
der'standably be worried about what it means to
them. Will prospective homeowners be able to get a
loan? Cali those with adjustable rate mortgages refi-
nance before the-interest. rate resets) Is my bank af-
fected by the market correction? Will the subprime
market send the economy iiito a recession?
Though I cannotanswer each question specifical-
ly, I can offer some assurances.
It may first be helpful to consider the big picture.
In the entire housing market, 35 percent of home-
owners own their homes free and clear. Of those
with mortgages. 94 percent are paying on time.
That's good news.
In the subpriine itarket -- which constitutes about
14 percent of the total housing market -- 85 percent
are paying their loans on time now. As many d-

inz standards, due diliaence and capital standards. i
Though their loan portfolios are mostly Luiaffect-
ed by the current subprinie mortgage mess, federal-
ly-insured banks and savinas institutions are able
and wiffing to be part of the subprime solution.
They are well -capi talized- and have a diverse source
of funds. including deposits and Federal Home
Loan Bank advances. They are in a solid position to
keep mortgage dollars flowing to creditworthy bor-
rowers and communities and, hi so doing, prevent
today's market turmoil from becoming a housing
So wbether.you are a first-time home buyer or a
borrower who hopes to refinance an expensive loan,
you will serve yourself well if you start your loan
search at a local bank. That's where a loan officer
will sit down and evaluate your options.
Banks are interested in long-term customer rela-
tionslilps, so we won't try to sell you a loan yoi can-
not afford. We'll make a loan that's right for you and
the bank and, by doing so, we'll be doing what's
right for the community and economy at large.

justable rate mortgages reset in the next several
nionths. delinquencies may increase, causing this
ntunber to slip.
That's not so great news. but it does reveal some-
thilig important. The majority of SUbprilne loans
are performing. That suggests most subprime bor-
rowers have good loans that they are capable of re-
payhi-. It also shows that a subprime loan is not iii-
herently "bad" or "predatory" it's just less than
But what about aU those subprime foreclosures
we've been reading about -- how do those fit in? For
the most part. these are the result of risky loans
made and supported by unregulated participants in
the mortuage market such as mortgage brokers
and investors who purchased the loans on the sec-
ondary market.
Highly regulated-commercial banks and savings
institutions have simply refused to make the sorts of
risky loans that are at the heart of the issue. These
rock-solid financial institutions adhere to the fwida-
nientals of safety and soundness. sound underwrit-

Following her own recognition as Miss MCHS, Brittany
Davis, who also serves as Student Body President, presided
over the homecoming ceremony As she exclaimed, "Good
Evening! It is now time for us to introduce our 2007 dub rep-
resentatives," a hush and a rush moved through the audience
as the representatives and their escorts were introduced.
"Our first representative is Miss Art, Lydia Hernandez,"
Davis announced. Upon her announcement, Hernandez and
lier escort walked from the back of the gymnasium up a cen-
ter aisle toward the stage. As they walked, applause and
.cheers rang out
t One couple at a time walked forward to the stage as un-
'dertones of, "How beautiful," "What a lovely dress," and
"Don't they look good together," could be heard above the
sighs of happiness and pride.
It is now time to introduce the 2007 homecoming
princesses," Davis announced. The princesses represent the
three finalists from whom the Homecoming Queen is selected.
Miss Mandi Ban's, daughter of Teri and Bobby Barrs of
Madison, was introduced first. Miss Alexis Stalnaker, daugh-
ter of Sam and Deloris Stalnaker of Madison, followed her.

Greene Publishing, Inc.
Combining a fun attitude with a lot of
know-how, Amanda Coe and Tami Brown keep
things moving smoothly as receptionists at
Madison County High School. Although very
helpful and pleasant to visitors, they're also
very skillful at shutting down attitude when it
comes their way as well.
Amanda is the wife of Mike Coe, Offensive
Coordinator for the Madison County High
School Cowboys football program. They have
two children,' Zacary (6) and Braden (13
months). Coe said her family has settled in
nicely and loves the people of Madison saying,
"It's a great place to raise our children."
Tami Brown expressed the same sentiment.
Moving to Madison from Delaware, Brown has
four children, Angel (16), Tonisha (8), Toni (7)
and Amari (3). Since returning to Madison,
Tami has found a home at MCHS,. where her
great attitude works well with both students
'and staff.

Is there a promise of cooler weather in our future?
something in the morning air has lifted our spirits and
the calendar agrees. IT IS FALL! As September wanes
and October arrives, lovely, mild temperatures arrive
too. Now is the time of year that it is pleasant for us gar-
deners to get out and enjoy those gardening chores. It is
an excellent time to plant almost anything that is winter
hardy-especially my love-HERBS and winter'vegeta-
bles. Many herbs are hardy to the Madison area and will
actually perform better in cool weather rather than in
the warm summer months. Let's take advantage.
Plants now will have a few months to get their roots
established and will be much further ahead of those
perennials not planted-before the spring. The stress of
the heat will be lifted and survival rate is much greater.
PLUS it is a marvelous time for annuals that love cool
' Some of our favorite culinary perennial (will live for
several years) herbs that do well when planted in the fall
are: rosemary, chives, thyme, sage, oregano, winter sa-
vory. mint, fennel, French sorrel, salad burnet, and es-
piecially lavender. Many of the butterfly and humming-
bird attracting perennials can be planted this season
als:' A few favorites are Pineapple Sage, Mexican Bush
Sage, purple coneflower, Indigo Spires Salvia, Autumn
sage and Rue. Parsley, considered a biennial (which
leans it should live for several seasons), is a great one
for butterfly gardeners because it is a larval host plant
.fpr Black Swallowtail caterpillars. AND every herb gar-
den needs parsley! Fall is the BEST time to plant fa-
,orite annuals (will live for one season) such as dill,
cilantro, chervil, arugula, and German chamomile.
, These annual herbs planted in the spring will not
survive the summer-or a warm spring. Right now is
the time to plant cool weather vegetables too. The joy of
thering a basket of salad greens from either your gar-
en or a pot on your back deck is unbelievable. Those
n and tasty Oriental vegetables like Pac Choy and Tat
y are also. very good for you. Collards, mustard
greens, broccoli and beets are their best in cool weather.
Most every garden should be amended with some
od composted organic matter each season. Remember
is important to rotate-even if it is from one side of
ur garden to the other. At least six hours of sun, good
ainage, proper pH and ample water when dry are all it
es to have a bountiful and beautiful garden this fall!
Happy Fall Y'all! Enjoy!

Madison located in sunny North Florida,
lots of beautiful open land. Great for farming.
Great for fire ants.
It's true that fire ants prefer open, sunny ar-
eas, like parks, pastures, and yards, and boy, does
Madison have plenty of that. Nearly everyone
has experienced the venomous bite and the itch-
ing and burning that gives those darned ants
their name.
Fire ants have been known to openly attack
people, plants, and animals much like barbar-
ian invaders. The pests can cause damage to
homes, buildings, air conditioning units, and
w i r e s '. ,
They're down-
right-vicious ,
fire ant baits
and drenches
have been in-
vented that all
proclaim to
"Kill In 24 Hours," but some work and some
don't. It's kind of like a hit and miss game. How-
ever, hope is on the horizon some retailers car-
ry Advion Fire Ant Bait by DuPont,. which is
proven to kill the miniature monsters within 72
For people who don't place their faith in pes-
ticides alone, there are countless home remedies
for exterminating the little beasts, including that
less savory method of pouring gas on the mound
and then lighting it. While the blaze does look
pretty, it isn't exactly the ideal place to roast
Some loyal soda drinkers profess that pouring
two two-liter bottles of coca-cola on a mound of
fire ants is a sure bet for genocide. Fire ant killer
purveyors also suggest using dry ice the carbon
dioxide replaces the air inside the mound and is
a silent and deadly killer. When its job is done,
the carbon dioxide simply rejoins the atmosphere
perfectly safe.
For a nice little show, some suggest actually
moving the mounds around. Take a shovel full of
ants and dirt from one mound, and put it on an-
other mixing up the mounds. The ants put on
their battle gear and have it out, effectively

killing each other. Be sure to bring popcorn for
the show.
Boiling water is said to work at getting rid of
fire ants, although it does kill the grass around
the mound. Dead grass for a few weeks is a small
price to pay for the eradication of the beasties.
One suggestion is to dip a cotton swab into olive
oil, roll it around in powdered cinnamon (a few
times for the layer effect) and stick it two inches
into the mound. Not sure how exactly, but some
swear by its power to kill.
Gardeners who are looking out for the well be-
ing of their fruits and veggies recommend using
Dawn original dish soap. Diluted or full strength,
the soap poured around fire ant beds has been
proven to
eat':w wo r k
fitre ants.
For a
tried and

method d,
try pour-
ing grits or cornmeal onto the mound. The ants
eat the dry stuff, and swell up because their tiny
little ferocious bodies can't digest it. Theni, for
the finale, the ants explode.
The trick to all of this is killing the queen,
who is capable of laying hundreds of eggs in an
hour. An enterprising ant killer can eliminate all
the other ants, but it's the head of state-that ac-
tually counts. Kill her, and no more minions.
Sometimes people are unfortunate or unlucky
enough to be bitten by fire ants. In fact, it hap-
pens on a regular basis. The bite is almost al-
ways -accompanied by a burning,. itching sensa-
tion, and a delightful little pustule of venom. Hot
water is reputed as being able to get rid of the
elusive fire ant itch.
Should the bitten be allergic to the bite,
swelling and anaphylaxis may occur. The idea in
this situation is to seek help immediately and not
to adopt a "wait and see" .attitude. *
Fire ants are nowhere neareradication in the
southern United States, and until that date some-
time in the unforeseen future, folks from every
corner will be discovering all sorts of homemade
,remedies to get rid of the vicious, ferocious, fire
