County Commission

Working To Keep

Uninterrupted

Growth
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The challenge in effectively report-
ing the Madison County Commission
meeting of November 7 is deciding
where to be-
gin. There are
numerous pro-
jects under-
way, each
making its
own contribu-
tion for a bet-
ter Madison
County One
point for sure
though, the
Jerome Wyche Mad is on
County Com-
missioners, along with the Madison
County staff, are committed to solving
problems and growing the county with
all residents in mind.
Following a few minor issues con-,
cerning property lines and rezoning for
commercial purposes, several larger is-
sue were discussed, starting with Rosa
Richardson, Director of the Madison
County Senior Citizens Center. Accord-.
ing to a grant proposal currently in mo-
tion, the guideline for the newly pro-
posed one million dollar senior center
requires a 25 percent match. The 25 per-
cent match can be "like kind" however,
meaning that services and property can
be included at market value.
"The City of Madison has given us
five acres valued at $92,000. Corrections
is looking to contribute, and we would
ask the County to cover land prep."
Richardson told the Commission. Due
to a critical deadline in the grant, the
Commission agreed to hold a special
session for detailed discussion.
Another key piece of business is the
planned construction of a $700,000
county library adjacent to Lee Elemen-
tary School. Utilizing a long-term lease

Thelma Thompson

Resigns From Lee

Town Council
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
There were several important 'is-
sues discussed during the Lee Town
Council meet-
ing of Novem-
ber 6, but cer-
tainly none
more moving
than the resig- 4
nation of
Council-
woman Thel-
ma Thompson,
effective De-
cember 31 of
this year. Af- .
ter almost
twenty years
of working Thelma Thompson
closely with
Lee officials, thirteen of that on the
council, Thompson can no longer keep
up the pace and high standards she
places on herself.
"I have to leave for health reasons. I
just don't feel I can get around like I
would need to be on the Lee Town Coun-
cil," Thompson explained. "I have en-
joyed serving very much with such fine
people. Mayor Ernestine Kinsey, the
previous Mayor Louis DeMotsis, Town
Manager Cheryl Archambault and all
my fellow council are the best people,"
she added. "I would encourage all the
residents of Lee to take a active role in
their local government," she went on to
say.
Thompson has walked what she
talked. Prior to joining the council, she
worked hard to launch the Lee Home-
coming celebration, which has contin-
uied for 19 years since. Thompson also
led the charge for the Lee Library, and
has contributed to the "Lee Limelight"
section of this newspaper.
The main order of business for the
council was a proposal to purchase a
feasibility study to determine Lee's po-
tential role and benefit to bring natural
gas to the county "Grant funding is
available to cover the costs of the feasi-
bility study, it's just that we need to put
things in motion. With your approval
we can see if this opportunity can ben-
efit us, like the water infrastructure,"
Town Manager Cheryl Archambault
presented. There was a unanimous
vote to move forward.
Additional business included a vote
to accept voluntary annexation of the
Norman and DangqueHfaynes property
The only formal requirement is that the
property be "contiguous," which may
sound like some kind of disease, but ac-
tually means simply that the property

We Will Be Judged On What We Did For Others Ren Tin|
e eSheree Miller : .


Dear Editor:
My daughter and her husband have been living with
us after their wedding four months ago. They have been
saving their money so that they could get a place. of
their own, and were excited about The Arbours, the new
apartment complex that just opened up in the city of
Madison. My son in law stopped by the office to inquire
about the requirements for leasing an apartment. He
was asked where he worked, and when he told the lady
that he worked at Nestle Waters, he was told that he
could not rent there, as he probably made too much
money! My daughter is currently seeking employment,
as she was laid off from Greenville Hills, even though
she was not the last one hired, and had an excellent
work record.(all the facts seem to point to race discrim-
ination). So, here are two people starting out, with a
combined income of $11.75 per hour, and they are de-
nied housing because they make more than $21.000 pert
year! That is the cutoff figure for 2 persons. If my son in
law were to quit his job and obtain a lower paying one,
he could qualify for subsidized rental! Guess who pays
the subsidy? ...us taxpayers! Oh, but you get a lot for
your tax money: the tenants of The Arbours have light-
ed ceiling fans in all the rooms, mini blinds, central air
and heat, full size washer and dryer connections, gener-
ous closet space, private patio and balcony with outside
storage, full size range, dishwasher, double stainless
steel sink with disposal and a pantry. And if you are,
lucky enough to be unemployed, you can spend your idle
time in their sparkling pool, luxurious clubhouse, com-
puter center, or playground! You can also bring your
pets, and there is a clothes care center on the premises.
Now, there are plenty of subsidized rental places in
Madison County, but very little rental places for those
working that make over minimum wage. I believe in
helping those in need, such as single moms that struggle
to make ends meet, but are trying to work to provide, se-
nior citizens on low incomes, those that have had some
misfortunes and are needing assistance, etc. I am not
aware of a large homeless population in Madison Coun-
ty, so we have over 70 apartments at this complex, but
you are not allowed in if you are making a decent wage.
On their brochure, it states that The Arbours provide
for "Equal Housing Opportunity". When I went to
school, I learned that "equal" meant the: same for every-

God's Gifts Are Good
One Sunday morning in church, my pastor told the
story of how a few years ago, his niece, Mary Pate, had
been talking with children at her church about Hal-
loween. The others told her where they were going to go
trick or treating. She told them .she was going to "trunk
and treat" at church.
The other children laughed at her and told her that
she would get no candy at church. The next day, Mary
brought her bag to school. The bag had a lot more candy
in it than the other children had.
Brother Flowers' recount of Mary's experience as
an elementary school student led me to think about how
God gives so many gifts to His children that the devil
can't give to the children who are still in the world's
darkness.
Many times, Satan attempts to blind the eyes of even
the Believers and convince them that no matter how
hard they try to serve God and others, it just isn't good
enough. Believe me, I've felt constant torment and stress
from the devil lately, but I'm still going to remember the
story of Mary's bag of candy and remember God's bag of
good gifts. ."

one. Apparently, that definition has changed to exclude
those that work making over minimum wage. Most
members of the working class that are helping to pay for
these apartments cannot afford the amenities that are
provided to the tenants. And if you qualify to be a ten-
ant, you better not try to get ahead, because you might
make too much money to stay in your home! Great mes-
sage we are sending here!
As refugees from Cuba in the early sixties, my par-
ents worked hard to provide for us, their children, and
we were taught that the United States was the greatest
country in the world, (still is) and to give something
back, as we were blessed to, be in this country We had
the opportunity to get ahead by hard work. I don't mind
helping those that are less fortunate, since that is what
Our Lord Jesus Christ wants us to do. We also instilled
these values in our children. But not to be allowed to
live in a place because your income is too high, even if
that income can barely get you by, is one of the -worst
kind of discrimination that there is. My daughter, who
wants to make a difference in people's lives has recently
experienced two big disappointments. She wonders why
she was let go from her job after being good at it, and
those hired after her with poor work ethics are allowed
to stay, and why she cannot rent an apartment when she
is willing to pay full price for it. The only thing I could
tell her is that life is often unfair, and to keep doing the
right thing. One day we will all stand before our God,
andwe will be judged on what we did for others.

Corey Tyrell Johnson Gets A

Slap On The Wrist


October 31; 2007. Though Corey Johnson was found
guilty by his peers, though the Prosecuting Attorney
asked for the maximum sentence, "10 years" though the
ATF special Agent, Ms. Mary D. though the Madison
County Sheriffs Office, and the Madison Police Depart-
ment, worked diligently for months, never faltering in
their collective thoughts, that Corey Johnson was guilty,
the Federal Judge gave Johnson, a total of 51 months for
dealing in stolen firearms. In addition to the 51 months,
Johnson is to get probation for three years he is to serve
his time in a prison close to his mother who has moved
to south, Florida. ; ,.
I.was again, allowed tov oice, my opinion to the-court,
hoping to get as much time for Johnson as the law would
allow. I explained my thoughts to .his honor, that I
thought we were doing this all wrong and in reverse.
Our Governments, Federal, State, County and Cities,
,have passed over 24,000 firearm laws in the last 50 years
trying to keep firearms away from criminals, none have
worked. There are thousands of people employed by all
our Governments working on just this one single prob-
lem, nothing has worked. Then we wring our hands and
want to pass even more firearm laws to prevent crimi-
nals from getting their hands on firearms, and they
won't work. Some in our Governments and the majority
of the press blame many of the ilks of the population on
the firearm.
But then, in 2005, "the last year available to me" there
were 15, million hunting licenses sold in America, there
are also another 5 or more million gun owners that do
not hunt, but shoot thousands of rounds down range at
paper plates and targets.
Therefore, on any given day during hunting season in
2005, there could have been 20 or more million people on
the streets of America with firearms. That dear friends,
is 12 million more people, armed, on the streets of Amer-
ica, with more firepower, than all the Armies of the
world combined. Yet, nothing happened. Why? We are
law-abiding citizens, we do not commit crimes.
This is why I truly believe we are doing this all wrong.
Criminals always find a way to get firearms in order to
enhance their criminal activities. Four came to my
store, ripped the telephone wires and electric cables out
of the wall, tore the door and frame all to pieces, then,
simply stole them.
I know of a. much better way to keep firearms away
from criminals. We need to keep the, "Criminal away
from the firearm", not the firearm away from the crimi-
nal.
I explained the following to the Judge "Let me show
you how easy it really is, we have Mr. Cory Johnson in
custody today, one can see he hasn't stolen any firearms
today, or yesterday, or for that matter, all of this year.
Why? He's been in prison. Should the court decide to
keep Mr. Johnson in prison for the paltry 10 years I'm
told is the fullest extent of the law. I can assure your
Honor that Mr. Cory Johnson will not be stealing any
firearms in all that time.
The Judge gave us a brief as to why he decided to be
so lenient for Johnson. Johnson's attorney has pled to
the court from the beginning that his client wasn't very
bright. Johnson had told the jury that "some dude he
don't know put a gun to his head and made him give
$60.00 for the two firearms he had in his possession that
actually turned out to be, three firearms".
The defense attorney argued that his client had the IQ
of a cool room in the summer { 74 } the prosecutor ar-
gued that he didn't try while taking a test. Johnson had
been sent to Miami for some IQ testing. Anyway, he quit
school while in the 9th grade and was found a brick or
two shy of a full load.
How mean can a Judge be to someone who doesn't
know enough, to get out of the rain?
Johnson then had his turn with the Judge. He argued
he had absolutely nothing to do with the Breaking and
Entering of my store and never had any of those stolen
firearms in his possession. Oh! I almost forgot, Johnson
also said "I found Jesus while incarcerated, I wouldn't
lie about this"
Mr. Corey Tyrell Johnson has since appealed his sen-
tence of the 51 months, the Judge gave him.

My Kind of Halloween


The "Wizard of Oz" family.


Raggedy Ann and Andy.


Karen Abbott at Cherry Lake General Store told her
kids she would never dress up for Halloween. This
proves her wrong!


Residents participating in door-to-door festivities
I, for one, was thrilled with the large turnout of cos-
tumed children and adults participating in the Hal-
loween festivities last Wednesday evening in Madison.
There was a wide variety of handmade and store-bought
costumes, from cute to clever, to original and spooky I
especially adored the set of infant twins dressed as
Raggedy Ann and Andy Sooo.. .cute. Also, the family of
Wizard of Oz characters. Sooo...clever.
As I was walking up and down Range Street taking
candid shots here and there, it brought back memories
of Halloweens in New York State with my children when
they were little. It even triggered some Halloween mem-
ories of when I was a child trick or treating. All of my
grandchildren seemed to be excited about the idea of
trick-or-treat and were there as well. We also got a
chance to ride through some of the popular neighbor-
hoods.
We found several homes decorated and residents
participating in the door-to-door festivities.
Travis and Jennifer Kervin had a great idea hauling
a hay wagon full of kids and parents through the neigh-
borhoods doing the door-to-door trick or treat. This
made for easy loading and unloading of costumed chil-
dren. Great idea.
Halloween activities, such as carving pumpkins to
become Jack-O-Lanterns, and dressing up in costumes
for contests, parades (now, there's an idea for next year),
and trick-or-treating are just a few Halloween traditions
that I would like to see my grandchildren grow up with.
I'm very pleased to see Madison County businesses
and residents participating to make it enjoyable for
everyone once again. Thank You all for doing something
more for the youth and traditional families in Madison
County
Next week, read more on "Keeping up with Tradi-
tions."

Plan Now To Avoid That

Holiday Weight Gain
One tradition Americans have we celebrate most oc-
casions with food. Now, we are about to start the holiday
stretch starting with Thanksgiving and ending with
New Year's Day In short, we are looking at six weeks of
eating more than you normally consume.
A traditional holiday meal can supply upward to 3,000
calories. That is more calories from a single meal than
most people eat in an entire day In addition to holiday
meals, there are always baked goods and desserts at
every gathering.
It is possible to eat some of everything during the hol-
idays and not take in too many calories. The key is to eat
sensibly, be physically active and reduce calories when-
ever possible; realizing that some of the foods we eat
during the holidays will be high in calories.
Here are a few ideas from Extension Specialists to
help you avoid consuming excessive calories over the
holiday season.
Eat moderate portions of food. Keep extra servings
to a minimum.
Leave butter and sugar off the table at mealtime.
Substitute low-calorie alternatives for food high in
fat or sugar. For example, low-fat sour cream can re-
place the traditional high fat version. Reduce the
amount of sugar in your sweet potatoes and add vanilla
extract for added flavor.
Serve a fresh vegetable tray with a low fat dip instead
of potato chips.,
Substitute reduced-fat cheeses and cream cheese in
your recipes.
Steam, bake or microwave vegetables rather than fry
and season with herbs and spices.
Replace whole milk and cream with low-fat or skim
milk in puddings, soups and baked products. There is
now fat free half and half on the market and it is hard to
tell the difference in taste.
Lighten up your holiday baked goods by cutting the
amount of sugar by one quarter.
To help reduce cholesterol, substitute egg whites in
recipes calling for whole eggs. Use two egg whites in
place of each whole egg in baked products.
During the holidays, schedule time for physical activ-
ity to help burn off extra calories. Take a 15 minute
walk during your lunch hour. Every step counts, so park
further out in the parking lot when you go to the store.
Household chores and yard work will also burn extra
calories.
Sensible eating and staying physically active during
the holiday season will keep your weight in check and
keep the extra pounds off. "Holiday Meals" will be a
food preparation program offered at the Extension Of-
fice on November 13th at 6:00 p.m. Participants will
,learn meal preparation strategies to adjust traditional
recipes and add healthier dishes to your holiday tables.
Call the Extension office for more details or to register.


County Commissioners, cont from page lAI
with three intervals of 30 years each, the county voted
on provisions to select an architect and to purchase title
insurance. County Attorney Tom Reeves disclosed that
his firm would be receiving the approximate $4000
charge for the policy A second policy will cover the
Emergency Operations Center.
Jerome Wyche, Madison County Solid Waste Direc-
tor, came before the Commission to announce the bids
for a hew- Solid Waste Cable Roll-off Hoist System and
Heavy Duty Chassis Vehicle. The low bid was waived
however, because of a trade-in feature on the next lowest
bid.
"The Mack truck we're wanting is a little more, but
when you consider the trade-in allowance, which states
that we can get a new truck next year for only $8500 dol-
lars, and then considering the wear and tear, the de-
mands on our current equipment, and-how that equip-
ment becomes obsolete, this is a much better deal,"
Wyche explained. The Commission agreed, and Reeves
explained the procedures for waiving the lowest bid
when extra value comes from contract options.
There were other points of interest that will be de-
tailed later, including proposals to improve county an-
nual leave accumulation accounting, and re-acquiring
membership in the National Association Of Counties.
Also, look for the upcoming announcement regarding
the Property Surplus sale.
There are many ways to observe the Commission's
commitment to being prepared for the future. Certainly
every Commissioner is anxiously anticipating the ef-
fects of the new state tax changes and the impact it will
have on residents of Madison County. But there was
also a consistent indicator at this meeting that we're all
moving forward as a team.
As votes were conducted, Chairman Alfred Martin
announced the final vote count. Each issue, dozens in
total, received a unanimous vote, which Martin quickly
declared as "5-0." Because of the popularity of the
crime drama "Hawaii 5-0," after hearing it several
times, this reporter began to think of the Commission's
evident team collaboration as deserving the description
"Madison 5-0."

His parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Terry, Sr. in mark-
ing the momentous occasion, joined William at LES.
Participants in TSIC sign the contract and make a

free, and have good attendance. Upon William's gradua-
tion, he'll be given the two-year scholarship.

rent property line.
In closing, Madison County Commissioner Roy El-
lis, who represents the Lee area, expressed his senti-
ments regarding the wrap-up of this year's United Way
Campaign. Ellis has taken an executive role in the coun-
ty fund drive, urging everyone to do what he or she can
to support the essential services provided locally 'All
Madison dollars stay in Madison," Ellis noted.

Memories Golden Ray


Today I climbed a darkened stair-
To the attic of the mind
But once that door was opened
The golden light of time
Bathed all in memory bright -
Gems from childhood, teen-aged years,
Glowed in that lovely light;
First day of school to cap and gown,
Young love to married bliss;
The time when boys meant more than books,
And the thrill of that first kiss;
The happiness of married years,
The peace of family life,
The joy of children growing up,
Outweighed the toil'and strife
That sometimes managed to creep in -
Sitting cloaked in reverie
As sweet memories returned,
Time had brushed away all pain
And a lesson I had learned -
Cherish all memories for if they're lost
.A part of you is gone -
Life will never again be complete,
Without them you're all alone.

Rev. Quackenbush and wife Ginny have memories of
their summer sabbatical vacation to cherish for they
with four other couples from all over the country (we are
very remiss in reporting this, Rich!) traveled as far
north as Ohio and Illinois, visiting four of the five great
lakes during their four week sabbatical, two weeks of
which were spent on spiritual retreat for study, reading
and prayer five days in the Amish country of New Bed-
ford, Ohio, and five days in the Olde Bed and Breakfast
of Freeport, Illinois the one where Abraham Lincoln
and Steve Douglas held their famous debate.
Rich was asked to preach in Kentucky, north of
Frankfurt, in a place named Harveyland. One highlight
of their trip was spending one night in Kennesaw, Geor-
gia, with Lorraine Berghuis. She had recently had
cataract surgery Knowing Lorraine, we're sure she was
overjoyed to see them.
Though we are very late reporting the Quackenbush
trip and its old news by now, we feel it's too interesting
to be left out, especially since they were in not only the
"land of Lincoln" but our home state as well. We hope
we got everything right, Rich.
We were sort of "called on the carpet" for not wishing
a happy birthday to someone recently so we'll try to
make amends. We have about stopped this since Jacob
seems never to miss birthdays and anniversaries. We
feel our reporting them also is rather redundant.
Anyway, we hope that Gail Carter had a wonderful
birthday on October 19 and by the way, happy birthday
to Willie Carter whose big day was on September 12.
And while we're on the subject, please wish this couple
a sincere happy anniversary on November 7 when they
will celebrate their 30th year together. Many more and
happy years together is our wish.
And we hope that all you ladies have your turkey on
ice or are you waiting for your husband to go hunting?
Be sure to bake those pumpkin pies, though. Have a
wonderful weekend, everyone!

Attorney General's Cybercrime Unit Makes 50th Arrest,

First Arrest For New Orlando Office


I Attorney General Bill
McCollum announced the
50th arrest made by his
Child Predator Cyber-
Crime Unit and the first
by the unit's new Orlando
Office. Authorities with
the CyberCrime Unit ar-
rested Douglas R. Phillips
this morning after he trav-
eled to meet who he
thought was a 14-year old
girl for sex. Phillips's ac-
tions will be charged un-
der the new CyberCrimes
Against Children Act,
which created a new crime
for traveling to meet a
child or someone believed
to be a child for the pur-
pose of sexually assault-
ing that person.
"Had it not been for
the dedicated team work-
ing around the clock to
bring this predator into
custody, he might have
continued to victimize any
number of children," said
Attorney General McCol-
lum. "Cases such as this
remind us of the dangers
lurking on the internet
and the determination
with which a predator will
hunt for victims. We must
and will continue our ef-
forts to protect Florida's
youngest citizens."
An undercover investi-
gator with the Cyber-


Crime Unit was ap-
proached in an internet
chatroom by Phillips, who
believed he was talking to
a teenage girl. Over two
weeks of conversation,
Phillips, 47, sexually so-
licited the "girl" online
and sent multiple porno-
graphic images to the
agent. Eventually, Phillips
told the "girl" he wanted
to meet her and take her to
live with him. Phillips, of
Deltona, was taken into
custody by law enforce-
ment officers with the Cy-
berCrimes Unit, the Flori-
da Department of Law En-
forcement and the Semi-
nole County Sheriff's Of-
fice.
.Phillips was booked
into the Seminole County
Jail. He will be charged
with solicitation of a mi-


nor, transmission of
harmful materials to a
minor and traveling to
meet a minor to commit
an unlawful sex act. If
convicted on all charges,
he faces up to 25 years in
prison. The case will be
prosecuted by attorneys
with the CyberCrime
Unit.
The arrest was the
first made by the Orlando
Office, which hosted its
grand opening just last
Monday. The new location
is the first additional of-
fice to open as part of At-
torney General McCol-
lum's statewide expansion
of the unit, which has
been operating out of
Jacksonville since its in-
ception in October 2005.
Five additional offices
will open in the Ft. Laud-

"kids" who grew up in


Whispering Pines during
the 1970's enjoyed a day of
fun at First Methodist
Church Fellowship Hall
with a picnic style dinner.

Whether you are hav-
ing a family reunion, high
school reunion or neigh-
borhood reunion, these
traditions are always en-
joyed and highly recom-
mended by these former
"kids" of Whispering
Pines.

Madison Corrections Celebrates





With Barbeque Lunch


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
There was an incredible bar-
beque lunch held on Wednesday, Oc-
tober 31, at the Madison Correctional
Institution (MCI), but at this bar-
beque the pig survived. In fact, the
pig not only survived, but also got
kissed, and kissed, over and over and
over again. The pig in question is
"Penny the Pig," and she was actual-
ly a special guest at the lunch, and
not on the menu.
Penny was in fact the guest of
honor, and a central part of the cele-
bration organized for the outstanding
job MCI did this year raising money
for the United Way. "In the end, over
$11,000 was raised, well above our
goal and expectation. Everybody did
an incredible job. Over $8,000 was
collected from income deductions
alone," Warden Steve Wellhausen
noted.
As part of the fundraising effort,
six "pig-kissing" candidates were
chosen. The person whose trough
was filled with the largest cash dona-
tions would then be required to give
Penny and big kiss for the cause. Un-
der the "Pennies for Penny" cam-
paign, donations were converted to
pounds, where $100 was equal to 60
pounds. Much of the cash collected
was actual pennies, but at game time
the bigger bills came out for the fa-
vorites and a few extras. When the
cash was tallied, Wellhausen was the
winner, although the other five made
a good showing.
.As. it turned out though,, Penny ,
wqp't limited to just kissing. .. ,
Warden. Eventually, all the candi-' '
dates, and a few others, gave penny a
wet one. All went well, but in the end
Penny may need therapy, especially
after Captain Robert Sukles added a
warm embrace to his kiss. Seriously
though, Penny is very fortunate.
She'll receive all the TLC she de-
serves, having been adopted by
Sergeant Steve Williams.
The candidates and their con-
tributed pounds were as follow: Win-
ner Warden Wellhausen had 570
pounds; Asst. Warden Ted Jeter col-
lected 475 pounds; Health Services
Administrator Lynn King was third
with 468 pounds; Major James Capps
was next with 225 pounds; and outgo-
ing Colonel Scott Crews, now Asst.
Warden at Holmes Correctional Insti-
tution, combined with incoming
Colonel Curtis Sistrunk for 167
pounds. Separately, Crews, with his
family in attendance, was honored
for his promotion.
Organizers, Officers Cindy Prid-
dy and Geraldine Beggs, also gave
huge praise to everyone. "We had
bake sales arid special programs all
hours of the day and night," Beggs
explained. "Everybody worked so
hard," she added. Cindy Priddy's
husband, Detective Jack Priddy, with
the Lowndes County Sheriff Depart-
ment, also gave to the event in a big
way. He produced an entertaining
video tribute to the celebration.
Even the youngest guests got into
the act. Parker Johns, son of Officer
Adele Reams-Johns and Sergeant
Rusty Johns, helped out by picking
the winning tickets for several nice
raffle gifts. Gifts included the War-
den's parking spot for a month, which
was won by Classification Officer
Leslie Hicks. Sergeant Walter Neely
won a jewelry chest. Classification
Officer Shellie Bearden won a gift
wagon filled with prizes, treats, and
coupons. And lastly, Officer James
Skipworth won a nice necklace.
This reporter also won a few
prizes. The first prize was enjoying
an incredible lunch with the finest
folks around. The second prize was
receiving extra help from Lieutenant
Jennifer Allen, who made it so much
easier to get to know everybody by
taking great notes. Ultimately how-
ever, the biggest prize is simply living
in a community with people like
these who care so much, share so
much, work so hard and laugh out
loud.

Mitt Romney's diversi-
ty is often promoted as the
perfect recipe for Presi-
dent of the United States.
On Friday, November 2,
these talents and qualities
were the topic of conversa-
tion during a campaign
lunch at One Eleven Grill
located in downtown
Madison.
Craig Romney, the
youngest of five sons of
Mitt and Ann Romney,
rolled into Madison in the
"Mitt Mobile," receiving a
very warm welcome to go
along with a very deli-
cious lunch. Each of the
five Romney sons is dri-
ving a handsomely brand-
ed campaign recreational
vehicle county by county
in various key states.
Craig is in Florida,
where he's doing every-
thing but recreating. In-
stead he's taking time for
as many Romney support-
ers as are willing to share
their time and their
thoughts.
"We want to know
what people are thinking
and what they need. When
my dad decided to run, he
brought all of us together
and asked about our feel-
ings of him running for
President. He cares about
our feelings, and that of
all Americans, and will

The Arbours Is Great


Property At A Great Price


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Many may find it sur-
prising that the IRS is fa-
vorably- involved in an
apartment project here in
Madison. Typically men-
tion of the IRS means
trouble. But in the case of
the recently completed
apartment complex "The
Arbours at Madison," it's
just the opposite.
The Arbours at Madi-
son is a beautiful proper-
ty located near US 90, just
west of the Winn Dixie
Plaza. Containing good
floor plans and attractive
amenities, the property is
also priced very competi-
tively. There are income
restrictions however, but
here this condition too
may be opposite of what
one might expect. The in-
come restrictions are not
only about making
enough income to qualify,

but also include limits on
making too niuch money
as well.
The Tax Credit Re-
form Act of 1986 created
the Low-Income Housing
Tax Credit program (LI-


HTC). The program regu-
lations are governed un-
der section 42 of the Inter-
nal Revenue Code. As a
condition for receiving
Housing Tax Credits,
owners niust keep the
units affordable for a
specified number of


years. The U.S. Depart-
ment of Housing and Ur-
ban Development (HUD)
determines the rent and
income criteria.
The Residential Selec-
tion Criteria for LIHTC



hours
properties with no sub-
sidy, the category under
which The Arbours at
Madison falls, is by no
means relaxed. While the
income requirements may
be lower, other qualifica-
tion areas are very strin-
gent. Three categories


that are carefully exam-
ined are: present and past
performance in meeting
financial obligations, pre-
sent and past housing ref-
erences, and present and
past character history.
The bottom line, after
you cross the "T s" and

Happenings At First Baptist


By Nell Dobbs
In everything, give
thanks! Sometimes that's
hard to do but we are to al-
ways be glad and rejoice.
Again, a wonderful
Sunday! Beautiful flowers
were placed by Bryan and
Mikey Wilson in loving
memory of his parents,
Mr. and Mrs. E.B. Wilson,
Sr. We are so thankful for
the memory of them and
their love for family, God,
church, friends and they
are still missed. Bless
their family left behind as
they remain faithful.
Pastor Heard ex-
pressed in words and writ-
ing their surprise and
gratitude for every expres-


sion of love shown them
by gifts and money for
Pastor. Appreciation
Month!
How blessed we were
to heard "Shekinah" by
the Trio and then "Rock of
Ages" by the Chancel
Choir after Walter
Copeland as Deacon of the
Week gave offertory
prayer and Juanita
played.
Preacher's message
was "The Dilemma of Dis-
cipleship." We are believ-
ers by choice, but the cost
of being a true disciple-
ship is high. 1.) The only
way to save your life is to
lose it. 2.) By giving up all
we have we can gain


everything we need. 3.) If
we gain all things and lose
one thing, we .have lost
everything. "What does it
profit if we can gain the
whole world and lose our
soul?" Jesus asked.
Thursday, the WOM
met at the house of Martha
Register at 6 p.m. At church,
little bags were handed to
the women telling of the
many missions they do.
Wednesday SAM met,
honoring their 20th year!
Amen!
Thursday, the church-

McNutt and coming twins -

positioned themselves on a green
to putt. But the wind kept blowing
them off balance.

Some played terribly, but Tony
Jacklin shot a remarkable sev-
enty-one. The secret?

"I used the wind," he said. "I let
the wind help me."

As in golf, so in growing. The
winds of trouble can help you, if
you use them.

The Living Bible says, "When
the way is rough, your patience
has a way to grow. So let it grow,
and don't try to squirm out of your
problems. For when your patience,
is finally in full bloom, then you will
be ready for anything, strong in
character, full and complete."

Is My BankAffected By The Market Correction?


What Does That Have To Do With My Mortgage?


By Deidra McRory New-
man
Business Development Offi-
cer, MCCB
Much has been written
about the turmoil in the
subprime mortgage mar-
ket, and consumers may
understandably be wor-
ried about what it means
to them. Will prospective
homeowners be able to get


Ili o enturned ow


a loan? Can those with ad-
justable rate mortgages re-
finance before the interest
rate resets? Is my bank af-
fected by the market cor-
rection? Will the subprime
market send the economy
into a recession?
Though I cannot an-
swer each question specifi-
cally, I can offer some as-
surances.
It may first be helpful
to consider the big picture.
In the entire housing mar-
ket, 35 percent of home-
owners own their homes
free and clear. Of those
with mortgages, 94 per-
cent are paying on time.
That's good news.
In the subprime mar-


ket which constitutes
about 14 percent of the to-
tal housing market -- 85
percent are paying their
loans on time now. As
many adjustable rate
mortgages reset in the
next several months,
delinquencies may in-
crease, causing this num-
ber to slip.
That's not so great
news, but it does reveal
something important. The
majority of subprime
loans are performing.
That suggests most sub-
prime borrowers have
good loans that they are
capable of repaying. It
also shows that a sub-
prime loan is not inherent-
ly '"bad" or "predatory" -
it's just less than Grade-A.
But what about all
those subprime foreclo-
sures we've been reading
about -- how do those fit
in? For the, most part,
these are the result. of
risky loans made and sup-
ported by unregulated par-
ticipants in the mortgage
market such as mortgage


You Can Build Now!




$250 MILLION


OF IN-HOUSE FINANCING!


When Others
Say No, Jim Walter
Homes Says YES!

Why? Because we have offered traditional, fixed-rate
financing for more than 50 years and don't play games
with ARMs or interest-only loans. In today's market, you
should put your confidence in larger, stronger
companies that put stable, risk-free financing within
reach. As America's largest on-your-lot homebuilder,
we offer financing that works with individual needs;
including credit issues. Plus, zero down payment for
qualified landowners, no points, no closing costs and
no payments or interest during construction!


brokers and investors who
purchased the loans on the
secondary market.
Highly regulated com-'
munity banks 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
fundamentals of safety
and soundness, sound un-
derwriting standards, due
diligence and capital stan-
dards.
Though their loan
portfolios are mostly unaf-
fected by the current sub-
prime mortgage mess,
community banks are able
and willing to be part of
the subprime solution.
They are well-capitalized
and have a diverse source
of funds, including de-
posits and Federal Home
Loan Bank advances.
They are in a solid posi-
tion to keep mortgage dol-
lars flowing to creditwor-
thy borrowers and com-
munities and, in so doing,
prevent today's market
turmoil from becoming a
housing crisis.
So whether you are a
first-time home buyer or a
borrower who hopes to re-
finance an expensive loan,
you will serve yourself
well if you start your loan
search at a local communi-
ty bank. That's where a
loan officer will sit down
and evaluate your options.
The official National
Community Bank Mort-
gage week is winding up
today however, communi-


ty banks are here for you loan you cannot afford.

A Veteran's Day Salute To George Willis


By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
"I saw no action on the battlefield,
and I received no injuries, but a lot of
valuable experience," George Willis said
of his service to the United States dur-
ing World War II. "My time in the mili-
tary was very profitable as far as I was
concerned."
Willis was born in Tifton, Ga., dur-
ing the Depression. "Though we did not
have running water, indoor plumbing,
or electric lights, our life was fulfilled,
and I discovered that you never miss
anything that you didn't have." Because
of financial problems, his family moved
to Orlando where he entered the second
grade.
Another move was in the future for
Willis and his family, and when he was
in fifth grade, the family moved to San-
ford. He worked for Western Union
"handing out sales circulars in Sanford.,
They paid me nine cents an hour."
In the eleventh grade, Willis began
attending a national defense school -
one of many that were founded during
the crisis, of World War II. "We had to
build up our strength by training people
in certain trades, particularly those that
would be beneficial to the military"
Willis worked after his regular
school, went to the defense school that
ran from six until ten at night. He went


to the defense school that taught elec-
tronics and radio. "I took a qualifying
test and on the day that I got out of
school I was at my job with McCroy's
Five and Dime at noon. My sister came
running in the back door of the store
saying that she'd gotten a letter ad-
dressed to me, and it looked important,
so she brought it to me."
That letter determined Willis' fu-
ture.. .He was appointed to the Orlando
airbase as an airplane radio electronics
technician, a civil service position.
Willis worked through the summer and


into December, and then received a no-
tice from the draft board that because he
didn't return to the twelfth grade, he was
to be drafted. On January 16, 1943,
George Willis left home for his military
service .
"I went to Camp Blanding at Starke
for my induction, and from there I was
sent to Kessler Field in Biloxi, Miss. I
went there for my boots, and then I was
sent off to Lincoln, Neb. airbase at Lin-
coln for extensive training as an aircraft
engine mechanic."
"Upon graduation," Willis contin-
ued, "I was assigned to Gardener Field in
Taft, Calif., as a crew chief on basic
trainers for air cadets. I had a type of
training that' was important to a new
venture and I was transferred to Vic-
torville Airbase at Victorville, Calif. in
the edge of the desert. I was there to take'
part in advanced training for air cadets."
Willis worked with cadets who were
training to fly the P39 Pursuit Plane. He
said that because the military skipped a
type of training, the cadets were moved
along ,too fast and weren't adequately
trained. "We lost a lot of planes and
some lives because they were trying to
advance the pilots and send them into a,
war zone." The planes the cadets trained
on were brought back from the islands
where they were used in fighting with
the Japanese.


From Victorville, Willis was trans-
ferred to Kingman Ariz. to work on the
B17 and B24 bombers, "on what we called
production line maintenance. We would
bring the planes in for overhaul, where
they were training people to be
bombers."
"My last assignment was at Washing-
ton, D.C., at Boling Airbase, which joined
the Navy airbase on the Potomac. Our
main responsibility there was to furnish
aircraft to the personnel at the Pentagon
and other upper level officials. I served
there until February 13, 1946 and I was
discharged when the War was over in
Europe."
Willis says that the training he re-
ceived was of great value to him in later
years. He received five years of college
education from the GI Bill. Willis did
construction work during college, and
later went to work with private technical
colleges in administrative capacity.
Willis worked as a general contractor be-
fore going into the real estate business.
Willis retired in 1994 as a realtor, and
currently resides on "Dogwood Hill" in
the house that he built with wife, Jo.
Willis is active in the community as part
of Kiwanis Club, and continues to serve
the students of the county through the
Madison County Foundation for Excel-
lence in Education and Take Stock In
Children.


REMEMBERING DWAINE WILLIAMS


By Leland Moore .
My heroes have always been cowboys
and WWII veterans -especially fighter pi-
lots and marines in the Pacific island
campaigns. Along with these I've also
had a special place for motorcycle racers.
Road racers.
There are many ways to compete on
motorcycles that will sort out who can do
it best but the road racer is a very unique
breed. This is a sport where you ride
dreadfully fast, slow down, speed up,
right and left hand turns while heeled
over at gravity defying angles, drifting at
times at the very ragged edge of traction.
Sometimes riders are so close that it ap-
pears that groups of riders are all on one
machine. All of this on hard, unforgiving
pavement. Physical stamina, steel
nerves, sound judgement, and quick re-
flexes are a necessity
Dwaine had a passion for racing from
sometime in the late 50s -early 60s until
last Sunday when he died in a track acci-
dent at Barbers near Leeds, Alabama.
Racing for that span of time boggles my
mind.


When I came to Madison 37 years ago,
I wanted naturally to find out who the
motorcycle people were so I asked
around. Everybody said "that'd be Roy
Williams, he has a shop out toward Hick-
ory Grove."
Dwaine's brothers are Roy, Aaron
and Dale. Roy fixed everybody's tractors,
cars or whatever came up. Also, there
was a shelf of trophies there that he'd
collected over the years as a motorcycle
dirt tracker, scrambler, and road racer.
Roy is a Madison county folk hero, a
legend. We met back then and have been
friends ever since. He has helped me and
everybody for a lot of years. His shop was
a local communication hub and a lot of
wisdom was shared and dispensed there
over the years by Roy and his loyal
clients. I'd hear people's names like" Pa
Joe Buchanan" but I didn't know him
then. There was no end to the Williamses
around there. Lots of them.
Now after being a demonstrator, liv-
ing history basket person at Hickory
Grove Founders Day for 14 years, and my
son marrying into the Buchanan clan, I


have a much better appreciation for these
very talented families.
Back to Dwaine. He was gone in the
military or making a living in south
Florida for many years. Naturally I'd
heard a lot about him. After he moved
back here I was fortunate in getting to
know him and to be able to appreciate his
skill and knowledge at his profession.
Dwaine and Roy both are engineers
in the truest sense when anything me-
chanical or related to engines was con-
cerned. Dwaine's shop and tools were al-
ways inspiring to me: well used, neat,
clean and organized.
He was an artist in many ways. An
example was his beloved Norton twin
that he was riding when he died. It is all
business, but so beautiful in its own way.
Nothing extra, no frills .Black paint, alu-
minum and steel.
My favorite part on it is its oil tank.
He made it from a section of irrigation
pipe. It was prettier than any that I'd
ever seen from some "cost-no-object"
racing operation. He could do most any-
thing, make anything. And then make it


do better. This is what his real job was
improving engines for his customers. I
am thrilled to have an engine he built.
At his funeral we all got to see, meet,
and hear from friends of his from all
over the country xwho few of us knew. It
was like the prophet being unknown in
his own home town. It was obvious that
he was loved and respected and appreci-
ated by his peers. He was a very kind,
hardworking, unselfish man. Dwaine, as
many knew, was tenacious, persistent
and easily misunderstood. A puzzle to
many He was a deep thinker, philoso-
pher and. poet. You don't see many mo-
torcycle racer poets. A family member
described him as a religious liberal. In
this definition of liberal it meant the
Christian or Christ-like, "love others as I
have loved you" (John 13:34) He lived by
that.
To continue to help other people,
which was what he was remembered for
by many there, was suggested to us as a
way to keep him always in our memory
It is an honor to have been a friend of
his.

BERNARD WILSON'S



First Bombing Mission Over Japan


"This is Bernard Wilson's induction photo into the
United States Army Air Corps. This picture was taken in
1944.


This picture was taken when Bernard Wilson came
home after completing "Gunnery" school in Ft. Myers. It
was taken in front of his mother's home at 202 Donalson
Street in Bainbridge Georgia.


. ,. :: -"., ,:w- '- .-.. *

S- .. .- '" .. . ,





The Circle "R" was the marking of the 6th Bomb
Group. Bernard Wilson was a Left Blister Gunier. His po-.
sition would be the blister in front of the star on plane 26.


Note: Bernard Wilson was stationed at 'Tinian. He is
a former Madison City Councilman and the former Vet-
eran's Service Officer for Madison County. Below are
notes complied by his son, David, an assistant principal
at Lincoln High School in Tallahassee, about Wilson's
first bombing mission over Japan. David commented:

"Like many young men of the 'Greatest Genera-
tion,' Dad joined the Army Air Corps at the age of 17.
He flew on 15 combat missions over Japan as a 19 year
old. He turned 20 in October of 1945. He joined the
Army atthe Bainbridge Georgia Army Air Station.
"*Dad was the Left Blister Gunner on a B-29 named
the "Anonymous IV" It was named the Anonymous IV
because the crew chief said that
he had already lost three planes
and he did not want any part in
naming the plane. When the crew
was told that, they became super-
stitious and they decided ,they
did not want to name the B-29 ei-
ther, so the "Anonymous IV" it i .
became!
"*He flew off of Tinian which
is the island where the Enola Gay
took off from on it's historic mis-
sion to Hiroshima. -
"Three Things that Dad is
most proud of:
"*Dad's crew flew on the last
mission of W1II, they were in
the air returning from Japan wh-
ern they heard over the radio
that Japan had agreed to uncon-
ditional surrender.
"*Dad's Bomb Group and
crew flew on the longest mission
of WWII. This was a mining mis-
sion from Tinian to Northern Ko- - i
rea just -south of Vladivostok ; :
Russia. Their bomb group landed ..
on Iwo Jima with a load of fully
armed mines, refueled, and took off for N. Korea. One
B-29 in Dad's Group made the round trip of over 4,000
miles without stopping. Unfortunately, Dad's B-29 de-
veloped engine trouble and had to return to Tinian be-
fore completion of their mission.
"*Dad's crew flew over the USS Missouri on 2 Sep
1945 as the Japanese were signing the surrender docu-
ments. They then continued to fly for 2 hours over
Tokyo at a height of about 1500-3000 feet in a "show of
force" along with over 600 other B-29's which had
spread out all over Japan."
Below is information from Bernard Wilson's First
Bombing Mission Over Japan:
Target: Akashi, Japan Mitsubishi
Aircraft Company,
Date: 26 June. 1945 Tuesday
Type Mission: Daylight Precision
Bomb load: (3) 4,000 general-purpose bombs
Number of B-29's: 38
Briefing Time: 24:00 (midnight)
Takeoff Time: 03:00 (3:00 in the morning)
Time over target: approximately 10:00
Altitude at Bomb Release: between 16,000 &
26,200 feet
Combat Flying Time: 15:50 hours
Return time: 18:50 (6:50 PM local)


MISC. The gunners loaded the .50-caliber machine
guns at 13;00 (1:00 in the afternoon Tinian time) They
had to change the gun
charger.
The diary of the pilot re-
ported that, "Soup over
S the target was solid."
They picked up ice, lost


the number two engine and almost stalled out on ap-
proach to target so the Radar Operator picked a target
of opportunity and they dropped their bombs on the
secondary target and headed back. *
Practically all the runs were on radar due to the
weather conditions over the target and the main target
was not well hit.
They stopped at Iwo Jima for fuel. On Iwo Jima,
they circled three times before finally landing; they
overshot the landing strip and went barreling into a
newly graded section of airstrip. Because the weather
over Japan was poor, many other B-29's also used Iwo
Jima for safe haven (thanks to Marines like Pete
Studstill of Madison and Boots Thomas of Monticello)
the pilot counted over 57 B-29's
that had landed on Iwo Jima for
"safe haven.
'' Dad said when you dropped the
bombs from the B-29, it was like
..the plane almost rose up in the


RESUME OF MISSION FROM
THE PIRATE'S LOG: This was a
S. da light precision bombing mis-
sion involving 38 planes from the
6th Bomb Group: The bomb load
for 38 aircraft was the same
[three 4,000-pounders each], but
two ships were forced to jettison
their bombs and five planes hit
other targets. Weather again
rules out a formation and bomb-
ing was individually by radar. An
additional 16 per cent of the
plant was damages or destroyed,
bringing the three-mission total
to 26 per cent. Three fighter at-
tacks were reported and one
--- Frank.was credited as destroyed
-- "lby Sixth gunners. All of the'
-,- -j.I f Group's Superforts returned
safehry.'Plrate's Log. p. 47]

RESUME OF MISSION FROM 20TH AIR FORCE:
Strike attack photos revealed probable hits on the ma-
chinery building, the railroad right-of-way SW of the
plant, the gun installation on the coast to the SW of the.
target. There was a near miss of the final,assembly
build ing.'but NW wall showed blast damage. Near miss-
es damaged the roof of the parts assembly building.
Flak was heavy, meager to moderate and inaccurate. No
fighter cover was provided. Two A/C were non-effec-
tive. Nine A/C (aircraft) bombed visually and 22 by
radar. Six E/A (enemy aircraft) made 2 attacks. Claims
1-0-1. Eight A/C landed at Iwo Jima. Average bomb load:
12,950 lbs. Average fuel reserve: 619 gallons.
Bernard Wilson's mission to Moji aborted due to
failure of engine # 1.

Date: 28 June 1945 Thursday
Type Mission: Night Mission
Bomb Load: 184 100 pound incendiary bombs
Number of B-29's: 30
Combat Flying Time: 5:25 hours

Left the Quonset Hut at 0800 to load guns, briefing
was at 1500; got halfway to Iwo Jima and had to feather
# 1 engine as it was out of oil. Dropped the bombs and
had to return to Tinian. Briefed altitude was 5800 feet,
the crew of Anonymous IV returned at 5000 feet and
"dodged" other B-29's on their way to Japan. Bom-
bardier sat in the nose of the B-29 and alerted Airplane
Commander and crew to oncoming B-29's. The crews
that took off from Tinian behind Dad's crew were not
flying at the briefed altitude of 5800 feet.
Dad's crew did not receive credit for a combat mis-
sion.

"Hair can really de-

With New Soccer Program


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madison Academy put
the wraps on their first
year of soccer on Thurs-
day, November 1.
Practice began for the
intramural season on Sep-
tember 25 and the boys
and girls played their first
game on October 2.
According to Principal
Michael Akes, approxi-


mately 18 kindergartners
and first graders and ap-
proximately 18 second
through fifth graders are
participating in soccer
during the first year.
Akes said that the
coaches .stressed the im-
portance to players of
making sure that their
homework is done on time
before they go to practice
or to play a game.


Cowboys Tame The

Bears, Clench

District Title
By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madison beat Dixie County 54-20 under the Friday
Night Lights to clench the district title. It's the thir-
teenth straight district title Madison has won.
Madison scored a whopping 25 points in the first
quarter. Chris Thompson scored three times, and wide
receiver Jabaris Thornton scored once on a six-yard
pass. Dixie County's Rodney Scott scored a touchdown
in the first quarter.
In the second, Madison scored another 29 points'to-
tal. Harry Reddick picked up a fumbled ball for a nine-
yard touchdown, and Cory Aikens 'had a clean seven-
yard run for another touchdown. Chestin Hardin ran in
for a fantastic 65-yard touchdown and later in the quar-
ter Thomps6n ran for 73 yards and a touchdown. Madi-
son brought in kicker Bladen Gudz who drove in a 28-
yard field .goal. Dixie County scored once during the
quarter Rodney Scott ran
a 28-yard pass from
Kameron King for a touch-
down. They opted for the
two-point conversion,
which was good, gaining
them eight points in the
game.
Neither team, scored in
the third quarter, but Dixie
County made what seemed
like a last ditch effort in the A
fourth. Rodney Scott re-
ceived a 45-yard pass from
Kameron King, and ran it in
for a touchdown. The kick
failed, and Madison won the
game by 34 points.
Next week, Madison
faces off against 3A power-
house Wakulla County Go

would go to other schools
to compete.

all "excellent" score after

Band Director Geoff Hill

will be a huge event, with
eight bands from all over
Florida and South Georgia
competing.

show, Urban Cowboy, was

biggest hit, perhaps, was

instruments.

All About GREAT


Your Oil AUTOTI
Most vehicle manufacturers recommend changing ; IO TIV
the oil once a year or every 7,500 miles in passenger car
and light truck gasoline engines. For diesel engines and
turbocharged gasoline engines, the usual recommenda-
tion is every 3,000 miles or six months.
If you read the fine print, however, you'll discover
that the once a year, 7,500 mile oil change is for vehicles CA RE
that are driven under ideal circumstances. What most
of us think of as "normal" driving is actually "severe
service" driving. This includes frequent short trips ifro ^
stop-and-go city traffic driving, driving in dusty condi- fo on o
tions (gravel roads, etc.), and driving at sustained high-
way speeds during hot weather. For this type of driving,
which is actually "severe service" driving, the recom- .. I n l
mendation is to change the oil every 3,000 miles ,orsix
months.
For maximum protection, most oil companies say to '- A lA i |

A new engine with little or no wear can probably get
by on 7,500 mile oil changes. But as an engine accumu-
lates miles, blowby increases. This dumps more un-
burned fuel into the crankcase which dilutes the oil.
Truck fleets often monitor the condition of the oil.5
in their vehicles by having samples analyzed periodi- .. ...t sI
cally. Oil samples are sent to a laboratory that then ana-
lyzes the oil's viscosity and acid content. Oil is then
burned in a device called a spectrometer that reveals
various impurities in the oil. From all of this, a detailed B
report is generated that reveals the true condition of H a ll'S

Bald Eagle Success
By Sallie Gentry ters specifically managed for
While recently driving toward the Visitor Center ear- fenokee National Wildlife Re
ly one morning, I was greeted by our nation's most recog- in 1936 as a refuge and breE
nizable symbol the bald eagle. It posed in the top of a birds and other wildlife. Sta
dead pine tree along the main entrance road, an unlikely for endangered .and threaten
spot for a bird whose habitat usually includes estuaries, cockaded woodpecker, gophe
large lakes, and rivers. The sun just peeked over the trees, The overwhelming success (
and enveloped the eagle in that magical light that lasts for that perhaps one day we will
only a few precious moments. As if on cue, as the sun this majestic symbol to the C
rose higher and the moment passed, the great bird took a
last look around and effortlessly soared west toward the ;' -
refuge of the swamp.
The excitement that filled my being stems from a true
success story announced just before this rare sighting. -
On June 28, 2007, Secretary of the Interior Dirk
Kempthorne announced the removal of the bald eagle ...- -
from the threatened and endangered species list. Just
forty short years ago, the bald eagle almost disappeared
from the earth. Habitat loss, illegal shooting and poison- (
ing from lead shot, and contamination of food sources, .
primarily from DDT and its derivatives, all contributed to
the eagle's steady decline. By 1963, only 417 nesting pairs
remained.
Through passage of the Bald Eagle Protection Act in
1940, the Endangered Species Preservation Act of 1966,
and the Endangered Species Act of 1973, safeguards were
put into motion to begin the process of saving our na-
tion's symbol. Today there are nearly 10,000 nesting pairs
of bald eagles in the contiguous United States.
The last nesting bald eagle recorded in the Okefeno-
kee NWR occurred in 1957 near Buzzards Roost Lake. Re-
cent sightings occur sporadically in and near .the refuge,
including Chesser Prairie, the St. Marys River and the
Chesser Island Landfill, located near the east entrance.
Bald eagles are seen more frequently here during winter
months, where they congregate near open water in tall
trees for spotting prey and night roosts for sheltering. "
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is the prin-
cipal agency charged with conservation of endangered
species. As a division under FWS, National Wildlife .
Refuges are the world's largest collection of lands and wa- J f u.

2007 Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival Show And Sale


An impressive group of
-U'1/p artists will convene in
01 T Thomasville this Novem-
ber to display sculpture,
k painting, carving, crafts,
Z r jewelry and photography.
S f Artists Thomas Brooks
S and Ronnie Wells have
k" OtH ,, 1 been selected to headline
^the 2007 ` Plantation
Wildlife Arts Festival, hail-
ing from Lakeland, Florida and Salado, Texas, re-
spectively.
A gifted painter who tries to portray the spirit
and mood of a subject while achieving authenticity
through value and color, Thomas Brooks has ap-
peared in various magazines, received acclaim for a
piece selected as the Florida Conservation Print of
the Year, and his work has been chosen for several
state conservation stamps.
Ronnie Wells; a full-time professional artist for
more than 20 years, was named Sculptor of the Year
for Wildlife Exposition in both South Carolina and
Illinois. He has won numerous Best of Show awards
and his seven foot bronze sculpture of mallard ducks
was installed at the national headquarters of Ducks


Unlimited in 2001.
Participating Artists
Jerry Turner is a seasoned fine-art photographer
with an inspiring eye for light, composition and bal-
ance. His impassioned work is utilized in schools to
teach lessons on conservation and preservation, as
well as in assisted living facilities to promote heal-
ing. This former biology teacher and nature photog-
rapher brings his subjects to life with breathtaking
clarity, ingratiating viewers to the world around
them.
Among the participating sculptors, David Peto-
lawny stands out as a self-taught stone sculptor "en-
tering [his] thirty-second year of training," from
whichhe hopes never to graduate. His sculptures of
water-related mammals are hand-chiseled from mar-
ble, limestone, alabaster and volcanic feather rock,
from which he creates works that are sensual to the
eye and touch.
Meanwhile, returning sculptor W. Stanley
"Sandy" Proctor, one of the original featured artists
of the Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival, was inducted
into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame in March 2006.
Exhibiting for the 12th year at the Festival, ac-
complished illustrator, David Lanier turned his at-
tention to wildlife art after his baseball career ended
in injury. A graduate of the Ringling School of Art in
Sarasota, Florida, Lanier captures sporting scenes
and portraits of birds and dogs in stunning detail us-
ing acrylic paint.
Participating Artists
Widely collected and published, photographer Di-
ane Farris lives, and works in Gainesville, Florida.
Her incredible body of work has been exhibited with-
in multiple national collections including the New
Orleans Museum of Art, The Museum of Fine Arts in
Houston, the Polaroid Collection in Boston, the High
Museum in Atlanta, and the Cincinnati Art Museum.

Painter Steve Andrews has exhibited at the Plan-
tation Wildlife Arts Festival for a number of years
now. Born and raised in Florida, Steve focuses pri-
marily on the vanishing coastal and rural landscape
of North Florida and South Georgia. In his oil paint-
ings he concentrates on color and design to commu-
nicate his impression of the scene. He is exhibited
in numerous galleries and private collections. Steve
currently resides in Tallahassee, Florida with his
wife and five children (including two sets of twins),
so when he's not otherwise occupied, he paints.
Self-taught pyrographer Julie Bender creates
photorealistic wood-burned portraiture in maple.
Inspired by quality photography and the natural
beauty of wood, Julie's greatest joy is watching sur-
face textures, grains and inherent natural tones sub-
tly and gradually reveal themselves in the wood. Her
work is currently represented at Turning Leaf Wood
Art Gallery in Blue Ridge, Georgia..
A BA from Dartmouth College, ah MBA from Har-
vard Business School and a career in technology have
unconventionally served Clara Rankin-Williams well
in her jewelry design.
Both she and her work have garnered print and
television media attention, with each new line a
much-anticipated and well-received success at na-
tional and local trunk shows, seasonal boutiques and
private showings. Her limited edition pieces can be
altered and combined thanks to her patent-pending
magnetic clasp: system, giving way to a unique cre-
ation of semiprecious and precious stones not found
anywhere else.
Silhouette artist, Sylvia Fellows, brought her fine
understanding of contouring to Disneyland 28 years
ago, after she noticed a lack of highly skilled silhou-
ette artists in the Anaheim, California theme park.
She also lends her creativity to the Sunset Ballet The-
atre in Orange County, California and Renaissance
and Revolutionary War reenactments, where she is a
costumer.
Nature Habitats
Naturehood
The resident nature experience for children and
adults alike at the Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival,
Naturehood features a fossil dig through Georgia's
Prehistoric past, a natural butterfly garden, a rep-
tile pit, interactive ecological and conservation dis-
plays, and a bouncy jungle.
Nature Habitats
Wild Discovery Center
Nature lovers will be captivated by the enchanti-
ng Wild Discovery Center,t sponsored by Flowers
Foods, Inc., a hands-on opportunity to connect with
the live animals of the longleaf pine forests, play
games, make crafts and participate in nature activi-
ties, through the Tallahassee Museum of History
and Natural Science and the Birdsong Nature Cen-
ter. In addition, visitors to the Wild Discover Center
will view the poster contest entries of the 100 top el-
ementary school finalists, chosen from over 2,000 en-
tries.
Field Trial Challenge
The Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival Retriever
Challenge returns this year as four to five canine
contestants compete on marked and blind retrieves.
Emceed by Davis Arthur, audience members will
learn how retrievers are trained and judged in the
field.
Duck Decoy Carving
Recently invited by the Smithsonian to fashion
decoys for the 2006 Smithsonian Folklife Festival
held in June on the National Mall in Washington,
D.C., carver Ernie Mills learned his trade from his
father and grandfather, and now passes his wisdom
onto lucky Festival-goers!
Ernie will be joined by Greg Balkcom, Georgia's
Waterfowl Biologist for the Department of Natural
Resources, winner of the Georgia Decoy Champi-
