Madison, Florida


MADISO


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The County Commis-
sion meeting of December
18 was an excellent exam-
ple of democracy in ac-
tion. By the time it con-
cluded, so inany people
:were in attendance that,
the meeting had to be
moved from the Annex to


COUNTY


IE-I
~;


the courthouse to accom-
modate the crowd.
Prior to moving, sev-
eral members of the cler-
gy and a few impassioned
citizens, took turns ex-
pressing their dismay that
the extremely unpopular
issue of "church versus
state" had crept.into
Christmas in Madison.


Much of the outcry
stemmed from a lack of
communication at the
Madison Public Library
regarding their efforts to
maintain policies govern-
ing public buildings.;
The policy in question
is the generally disliked
practice of keeping a "re-
ligiously neutral environ-


CHRIS
ment" in government
buildings. The obvious
problem is that these
buildings are filled with
people who cherish
Christmas as much as
they cherish the Christian
values of the nation's
founders, just like they
cherish their own family
values. Apparently, an in-


ternal library memo clari-
fying the issue, highlight-
ing what nobody Wants to
hear. In essence, it stated
that Christmas is a reli-
gious expression, and as
such should be handled
with due consideration in
government buildings,

16 Year


Olds Can


Pre-Register


To Vote
Governor Charlie Crist recently
signed into law legislation permitting
16-year-olds to pre-register to vote
when they apply for a Florida driver's
license.
This new law lowers the pre-regis-
tration age from 17 to 16, and any 16
year old who already holds a Florida
driver's license is also eligible to pre-
register to vote now effective January
2008. Once they
are registered, the
young adults auto-
matically receive a
voter identifica-
tion card in the
V O mail on their 18th
birthday no ad-
ditional applica-
tion would be nec-
essary
While pre-regis-
tered voters cannot
vote until they
turn 18, they are eligible to become
poll workers and work at the precincts
on election day prior to turning 18.
Voter registration applications are
available at the Supervisor of Elec-
tions office, any public library or any

Madison County
SBy Michael Curtis ,

;'"- Madison County turns 180 this month. According to the
,,i book The History of Madison County; by Elizabeth Sims, and ^.
confirmed with the generous assistance of Elmer Spear,
Sooner operator of Elmer's Genealogy Madison County was
founded December 26, 1827. Spear also made the accompa-
nying pictures possible by providing authenticated copies
,of official doctunents regarding the event.
"Madison County was named in honor of Founding Fa-
,. their and fourth president, James Madison, in 1827, when it
Swas chartered as Florida's largest county (That was before
Floridi was admitted to the Union, in 1845.) When first :
.:: formed. Madison County extended from the Aucilla river to
the Withlacoochee.and.Suwannee rivers, and from the Geor-
S--gia border to the Gulf of Mexico. Since'then, the county has
-"surrendered" Taylor, Lafayette and Dixie Counties, but
there are still 716 square miles of forests, rivers, lakes and '.
gently rolling hills to enjoy" according to
www.mdiowonountyflcorn.
The rich heritage of Madison County is as diverse as its
landscape. The essence of the county however is well cap- >
tured in the "Four Freedoms" message displayed on the
monument and in the park bearing the same name in down- -
town Madison. The freedoms of speech and worship, and ,I
the freedom from want and fear, resonate today.

TDC Setting


Strong


Strategy For


2008

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Managing all the moving parts of
an advisory council can be challenging
when objectives are well defined and
well established. Managing all the
moving parts while overhauling exist-
ing operations is obviously that much
more challenging, then, add to this the
necessity to develop and deliver a host
of new strategies and working tools,
and there better be sharp, flexible lead-
ership with vision steering the course.
Fortunately for Madison County.
the Tourism Development Council
(TDC) is focused on getting the right
people, 'ddiig'Hie riiit'gti mig, right
now, to achieve a simple mission: im-
prove and grow Madison County for
new, existing, and interested business-
es, while maintaining its rich residen-
tial heritage.
The projects underway are as var-
ied as the leadership bringing it alto-
gether, giving the creative process that
essential recipe for success. County

What Does Christmas

Mean To You?


John Dover

"Time with family and friends.
A reason to get together and
party!"




Madelinea Bass

"The Savior is born.".

year. A chance for families to be
together. I love to see the chil-
dren smile."



Melissa Hunter

"Goodwill to all, good health, I
hope. Thanks to our good Lord
for coming to us, for without
him, we wouldn't have anything.
S Good business, good things and
S good friends. Hopefully many
years of happiness to all."


Extra Tastes Can Total BIG Calories
Extra calories sneak up on us over the holiday sea-
son. Allice Henneman, Nutrition Specialist with Ne-
braska suggests that extra calories can sneak up on us
over the holidays. They don't always arrive in the form
of large portions of calorie-laden food. Rather theymay
tiptoe in through many tiny tastes throughout the day
Henneman looks at a typical food diary for one day
and view how those "tiny tastes" can add up. Calories
are approximate and will vary, depending on brand,
recipe, exact serving size, etc.
Taste 1: OOPS! I broke that cookie removing it from
the baking sheet. I'll just eat the half that didn't get all
crumbled up. I deserve it for getting up early to bake
these cookies before heading to work. Approximate
Calories: 30 calories
'Taste 2: Someone brought holiday candy to work to-
day! I'll just have one small piece of the peanut brittle.
Approximate Calories: 80 calories
Taste 3: It's mid-afternoon and I still haven't eaten
lunch. I need to pick up a few things that the grocery
store before I swing through a fast food place for a quick
bite. The grocery store is offering food sample I'll just
eat a little cracker with spread to tide me over until I get
to lunch. Approximate Calories: 40 calories
Taste 4: The fast food place is giving out 4 cup sam-
ples of its special flavored holiday coffee. I can't pass
that up! Approximate Calories: 20 calories
Taste 5: Still a couple of hours to go at work before I
head to that holiday dinner tonight. I think I'll check
out the break room to see if any more goodies have
shown up....Some chocolate-covered cherries have ap-
peared! Chocolate is good for you, right? I'll just have
one. Approximate Calories: 60 calories
Taste 6: It's a great dinner party, but maybe I should-
n't stand near the snack table before the meal starts. I'm
now dipping my third chip. Approximately Calories: 75
calories
Taste 7: Who can pass up old-fashioned eggnog? I'll
just have a half cup. Approximate Calories: 200 calories
Taste 8: There are just a couple of tablespoons of
candied sweet potatoes left. Someone should enjoy them
it might as well be me! Approximate Calories: 60 calo-
ries ,. : . ,
r e s ... -. ....-,.-h -
.'' teste 9:1" 'Th nice thing about helping isdi upi
dessert is you, can take a little "preview" taste using a
separate tasting spoon, of course! One heaping table-
spoon of candy cane ice cream coming right up! Ap-
proximate Calories: 100 calories
Total tasting calories for the day: 665
If comparable types of "tiny tastes" are continued
throughout the holidays, it might be possible to gain as
much as a pound a week! On average, an additional 3,500
calories above your body's needs can lead to a weight
gain of a pound.
Maybe that tiny taste isn't so small after all...

We Have The Right To Say

"Merry Christmas"
We have every right to say "Merry Christmas."
WhenI go into a business I expect it, otherwise I am
very much offended. No one is required to celebrate
Christmas, and if you choose not to celebrate that's fine.
As a Christian, I believe in God and my family and I will
celebrate and we will say "Merry Christmas."
Please stop trying to take God out; of everything.
Everyone needs to put Christ first in their lives by pray-
ing, reading the bible, and going to church. If we would
do these things this nation would be a better place to
live. Merry Christmas, all of you will be in my prayers.
Tasha Tanner

Isn't It Great To Live

In Madison County?
Also, Please thank our five county commissioners
when you see them. They are to be commended! This af-
ternoon, they voted 5-0 that all our county employees are
free to say Merry Christmas as much as they wish and
anytime they wish to. They clarified it totally for our lo-
cal Library as well The director of the:Library there
asked for the clarification from them. He spoke first.
Then Rev. Rich Quackenbush spoke to the group, fol-
lowed by Rev. Steve McHaurge. Then Bunny Maultsby
made some great comments. Then, they voted unani-
Smously! Isn't it great to live in Madison County.......we
are so blessed!.
Hopefully the rest of our great country will follow
this leading......
Vicki Howerton

Why It's Called "Christmas"

Santa lives at the North Pole;
Jesus is everywhere.

Santa rides in a sleigh;
Jesus rides on the Wind, and watksion theivater.'
Santa co1ets but dhce a year;
Jesus is an ever-present help.

Santa fills your stockings with goodies; '
Jesus supplies all your needs.
S Santa comes down your chimney uninvited;
Jesus stands at your door and
knocks, and then he enters your heart.

You have to wait in line to see Santa;
Jesus is as close as the mention of
His name.
Santa lets you sit on his lap;
Jesus lets you rest in his arms.
Santa doesn't know your name. Al he can say is,
"Hi, little boy [or girl],
what's your name?"
Jesus knew our names before we did.:
Not only does he know. :
our name, but he knows our address too.
He knows our history and future, and ;,
he even knows how many hairs are on our heads.
Santa hias a belly like a bowl full of jelly;
Jesus has a heart full of love.
All Santa can offer, "Ho ho ho!"
Jesus offers health,'help and hope.

Santa says, "You'd better not cry";
Jesus says, "Cast all your cares on me,
for I care for you."

Santa's little helpers make toys;
/Jesus makes new life, mends wounded
hearts, repairs broken homes, and builds mansions.

Santa may make you chuckle, but Jesus gives you joy
that is your strength..
Santa puts gifts under your tree; /
Jesus became our gift and
died on the tree.

It's obvious that there is really no comparison.
We need to remember whom Christmas is all about.
We need to put Christ back in Christmas.
Jesus is still the reason for the season.

which includes libraries.
In the end, Regional Library Director Danny Hales
wasn't viewed as a Scrooge, instead his history with
Madison was complemented. Still, he was caught in
the crossfire of the issue he was asked to address.
Reaching out to Commissioners for clarification, a vote
was taken on the issue. Following a motion by Com-
missioner Henderson, a vote was taken, receiving
unanimous consent. "Everyone can say 'Merry Christ-
mas' during Madison County business," Chairman
Martin announced.
In a jovial and passionate response, those in atten-
dance started applauding and shouting, "Merry Christ-
mas!" The meeting then went into a short recess, but
the fireworks were far from over.
.:The meeting reconvened across the street in the
Courthouse. It was necessary.to move the meeting to
the main courtroom to accommodate the public that
had come out in large numbers to protest against the
leadership and practices of the Madison County Ex-
tension Office. The Extension Office falls under the
governance of the University of Florida, IFAS pro-
gram. Diann Douglas is the local director for the pro-

gram.
The complaints levied at the Commissioners cen-
tered mostly on employment practices and personnel
changes, although a general message of lost confi-
dence and a need to improve program delivery was also
outlined. Among issues, a notable one concerned the
loss of previous Extension Agent, Kevin Campbell,
who was evidently very popular among many of the
producers throughout Madison. The Commission
agreed to immediately arrange a sit-down with IFAS
and local agents to investigate and search for solu-
tions.
The last item discussed was about the enormous
pile of trash, three acres around and 20 feet high, still
sitting after 10 years, just off US 90 about four miles
west of Greenville. Amidst concerns that hazardous
waste may be included, and given the lack of active and
current feedback from the Department of Environ-
mental Protection, Commissioners voted to make it an
agenda item for next month's meeting and to invite the
DEP to respond. '
The meeting was then adjoined to fresh rounds of
"Merry Christmas!" . '

By Ray Cichon
Special From the Monticello News
Monticello resident Arnold
Burkart was honored by family and
friends at a celebration Sunday, Dec.
16, at Carrie Ann and Company,
marking his 80th birthday
Burkart and his wife, Rebecca.
and daughter Laurel welcomed
guests as they arrived, and provided
entertainment, along with the North
Florida Community College Com-
munity Chorus.
SThe highlight of the evening
was the program presented by the
Community Chorus which opened
with a solo performance by accom-


panist Rebecca Burkart of "God
Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," and
"Sleigh Ride." The latter piece was a
tour de force with an introduction
written two octaves above middle C
and an extensive combination of
eighth notes.
Soloists Arnold Burkhart and
Janis Courson performed "Amen,"
which featured a perfect blending of
their voices.
An unusual arrangement of
"Amazing Grace" in 4,4 tempo show-
cased all of the voices of the chorus,
which then performed "Simple
Gifts."
A duet by Laurel Burkart and


Russell Courson sang "One Candle."
Concluding the program was
"The Rhythm of Life," from "Sweet
Charity" sung as an ensemble piece.
Jefferson County chorus mem-
bers are: Janis Courson, Russell
Courson, Jay Tyree, Dan Hamedani,
Linda Hamedani and Martha Creel.
Madison County members are:
Dolly Ballard. Lowell Hidy, Joan
Sootkoos, Ginger Jarvis, Mark Bran-
ham and Barbara McCauley
Meridy Robertson represented
Taylor County.
Kimberley Warner and Doug
Thomas represented Suwannee
County.

ly poses for the cam-

The devotional offered
by Florida Davis Smith to
open the Madison
Woman's Club meeting on
December 13 set the tone
for the gathering. Reading
from Henry Van Dyke's,
Keeping Christmas, mem-
bers and guests were treat-
ed to a passionate re-
minder of the meaning be-
hind the season, in that
sensitive and eloquent
manner only 'Florida
Smith can deliver.
The decorative tables
elevated the Christmas
theme, especially the tall
centerpiece decanters,
which..-were filled with

certainly delicious, made
that much more enjoyable
'by the singing of Captain
Pamela Moretz, who 'was
also the guest speaker
from the Salvation Army
Moretz gave an inspir-
ing look into the Salvation
Army, reminding every-
one what many already
knew, "The Salvation
Army has been offering
soup, soap and salvation to
those in need for years.
Still today though, 87 per-
cent of all donations get
directly to the source
needing help. So when you
see those bell ringers,
please give. generously,"

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT


TO BE VOTED ON JANUARY 29, 2008


NOTICE OF ELECTION


I, Kurt S. Browning, Secretary of State of the State of Florida,
do hereby give notice that an election will be held in each coun-
ty in Florida, on January 29, 2008, for the ratification or rejec-
tion of a proposed revision to the constitution of the State of
Florida.
No. 1
CONSTITUTIONAL REVISION
ARTICLE VII, SECTIONS 3, 4, AND 6
ARTICLE XII, SECTION 27
(Legislative)
Ballot Title:
PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTIONS; LIMITATIONS ON PROP-
ERTY TAX ASSESSMENTS

Ballot Summary:
This revision proposes changes to the State Constitution relating
to property taxation. With respect to homestead property, this re-
vision: (1) increases the homestead exemption except for school
district taxes and (2) allows homestead property owners to trans-
fer up to $500,000 of their Save-Our-Homes benefits to their
next homestead. With respect to nonhomestead property, this re-
vision (3) provides a $25,000' exemption for tangible personal
property and (4) limits assessment increases for specified non-
homestead real property except for school district taxes.

In more detail, this revision:
(1) Increases the homestead exemption by exempting the
assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000. This exemption
does not apply to school district taxes.
(2) Provides for the transfer of accumulated Save-Our-
Homes benefits. Homestead property owners will be able to
transfer their Save-Our-Homes benefit to a new homestead
within 1 year and not more than 2 years after relinquishing their
previous homestead; except, if this revision is approved by the
electors in January of 2008 and if the new homestead is estab-
lished on January 1, 2008, the previous homestead must have
been relinquished in 2007. If the new homestead has a higher
just value than the previous one, the accumulated benefit can be.
transferred; if the new homestead has a lower just value, the
amount of benefit transferred will be reduced. The transferred
benefit may not exceed $500,000. This provision applies to all
taxes.
(3) Authorizes an exemption from property taxes of $25,000
of assessed value of tangible personal property. This provision'
applies to all taxes.
(4 Liinuts the assessment increases for specified nonhome-,
stead real property to 10 percent each year. Property will be as-
sessed at just value following an improvement, as defined by
general law, and may be, assessed at just value following a
change of ownership or control if provided by general law. This
limitation does not apply to school district taxes. This limitation
is repealed effective January 1, 2019, unless renewed by a vote
of the electors in the general election held in 2018.

Further, this revision:
a Repeals obsolete language on the homestead exemption
when it was less than $25,000 and did not apply uniformly to
property taxes levied by all local governments.
b. Prove ides for homestead exemptions to be repealed if a fu-
ture constitutional amendment provides for assessment of
homesteads "at less than just value" rather than as currently pro-
Sided,.'at a specified percentage" of just value,
c.-Schedules the changes to take effect upon approval by the
electors and operate retroactively to January 1, 2008, if ap-
proved in a special election held on January 29, 2008, or to take
effect January 1, 2009, if approved in the general election held.
in November of 2008. The limitation on annual assessment in-
creases for specified real property shall first appl) to the 2009
tax roll if this revision is approved in a special election held on
January 29, 2008, or shall first apply to the 2010 tax roll if this
revision is approved in the, general election held in November of
2008. ,

tional homestead tax exemption not exceeding fifty thousand
dollars to any person who has the legal or equitable title to real
estate and maintains thereon the permanent residence of the
owner and \\ho has attained age sixty-five and \whose house-
hold income, as defined by general law, does not exceed twen-
ty thousand dollars. The general law must allow counties and
municipalities to grant this additional exemption, within the
limits prescribed in this subsection, by ordinance adopted in
the manner prescribed by generallaw, and must provide for the
periodic adjustment of the income limitation prescribed in this
subsection for changes in the cost of living.
(e)(g) Each veteran who is age 65 or older who is partial-
ly or totally permanently disabled shall receive a discount
from the amount of the ad valorem tax otherwise owed on
homestead property the veteran owns and resides in if the dis-'
ability was combat related, the veteran was a resident of this
state at the time of entering the military service of the United
States, and the veteran was honorably discharged upon: sepa-
ration from military service.'The discount shall be in a per-
centage equal to the percentage of the veteran's permanent,
service-connected disability as determined by the United
States Department of Veterans Affairs. To qualify for the dis-
count granted by this subsection, an applicant must submit to
the county property appraiser, by March 1, proof of residency
at the time of. entering military service, an official letter from
the United States Department of Veterans Affairs stating the
percentage of the veteran's serviceconnected disability and
such evidence that reasonably identifies the disability as corn-
bat related, and a copy of the veteran's honorable discharge. If
the property appraiser denies the request for a discount, the
appraiser must notify the applicant in writing of the reasons
for the denial, and the veteran.may reapply. The Legislature
may, by general law, waive the annual application require-
ment in subsequent years. This subsection shall take effect

Happenings At first Baptist


Church Of Madison


By Nell Dobbs
What beautiful messages on
Christmas cards and we are grate-
ful for all received!
From a different-colored can-
dy cane, received last year from
Pryncess (Lil Jesse's mother):
Colors of Faith Candy Canes
Yellow God's perfect light
Black Our sins
Red the Blood Jesus shed for
us
White the cleansing of otur
sins
Green the new life we have in
Jesus
Blue the baptism that identi-
fies us with Jesus
Purple the crown of life
Earnest prayers for oLur
nephew. Gene Wall, with his bril-
liant min d and way with words. I
thank him for his book of poems
and permission to use this Christ-
mas poem for several years.
Amen!
The Christmas Lamb
I used to think it very strange
A king should come this way:
Born in a stall with cows and
Sheep,
And in a manor ilav


A king should come to palace
warm
That's made of stone not clay
To gold and silk and silver
spoons
And all such royal array
A king should come to cedar
walls
And servants to obey
To dine and wine at tables fine
And hear musicians play
A baby king no doubt would
have
Bright toys to make him gay
And there's a maid or two or
three
To make his cradle sway
But Christ was born within a
stall,
Yes, where the cattle stay
And it's for sure His swad-
dling robe
No royalty did display
This Babe was there amidst
the flock
And lay upon the hay
And instead of stately music
sweet
He heard the horses neigh.
And thus the King of kings of
kings,
Sn mnn and anoolo cav?


Was born within a humble
barn;
Its walls were dark and grey'
But then the Lord a; stable
chose
A message to convey:
That in His eyes a baby lamb
Is what was born that day
Many are not well and need
prayers:
Tony Hughey, now home from
South Georgia and mending well,
Kathy and Norman Haynes, Si-
mon Kinsey in Rehab.
A marvelous Christmas can-
tata and a pleasant surprise! New
robes for choir!
Sadness again among us the
death of Mr. O'Toole and prayers
of comfort for his family Contin-
ued prayers for Mrs. Hazel Walk-
er's family and thanks for the life
Mh: Walker and she lived and
his being able to speak at the ser-
vice; for the Family of Mrs. Rob-
bie Andrews and thanks for the
life Mr. Sim and she lives and the
faith they had; for the family of
Dannitte Mays im.
May God be praised for His
great gift and give us grateful
hearts! Amen! A


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

Catch-and-Release
Continues to Catch on.
Most anglers just want to catch the opportunity to
relax outdoors. Numerous studies have shown that
catching fish to eat or catching a trophyfish is not
the motivation behind most recreational fishing trips.
A recent report from AnglerSurvey.com shows
that 60 percent of anglers release most of the fish
they catch: 18 percent release allthe fishthey..
- atchi' ando brhy 21 percent keep everything they
can legally. Those
statistics are consis-
tent with the reasons
that most anglers
choose t go fishing.
Spending quality
time in nature and
with friends and rela-
tives, away from the.
pressure of everyday
life, consistently are the top reasons for being a
recreational angler. The challengeof fishing and
the opportunity to connect with our heritage and to
pass it on to future generations also beckon many
who pick up a rod and reel:and head to the water.
Henry David Thoreau said it best, "Many men go
fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is
not fish they are after."
From a conservation standpoint that is great
news for all of us. Our treasured fisheries must
be shared by more people each year, and qual-
ity habitat is dwindling in many areas in spite of
great efforts to protect and restore lakesand rivers.
Consequently, a willingness to practice catch-and-
release helps to ensure the future of the sport and
the involvement of future generations in protecting
n rr es.H r, for catch-and-
release to enhance
the fishery, certain
basic procedures
must be followed.
Whether the release
is mandated by law,
the convenient choice
of the moment, or


an adhered to conservation principle, ceAain
practices should be applied.
Catch-and-release is a proven technique and
even very large bass may be caught several
times with proper handling techniques.
Follow thesetips for successful release of
Florida's freshwater fish.
1. Use hooks with barbs bent down or filed off,
to allow easy removal.
:2. Strike quickly, to avoid the fish swallowing
- the hook.
3. Play fish rapidly, to prevent wearing them out;
the more they fight and jump, the higher their
stress hormones and less chance of survival.
4. Don't use gaffs or even abrasive landing nets in,
order to prevent scale loss.
5 Don't squeeze the fish; support it under the belly
with a grip on the lower jaw, to prevent damaging
internal organs or breaking the jaw.
6. Keep fish out of water.as little as possible; they
don't breathe anv better in air than you do under
water. .
7. Use dehooking tools, to minimize the time out of
water and the tendency to squeeze the fish.
8. Cut the line if the hook was swallowed; the
stomach acid will dissolve the hook.
9. Don't use fish stringers in order to prevent fatal
damage to the gills. ,
10. Revive fish when needed by gently moving
them back and forth horizontally in the water,
to help get oxygen to the gills. In Florida's-fresh
waters, the fish are seldom deep enough to require
a bass to,be vented or fizzed; this just adds stress,
so don't do it.
11. If you are placing a fish in a live well, make
sure the aerator is working and the water tem-
perature is at least as cool as the water the fish are
from, using a little ice to coolit down if necessary,
but avoid drastic temperature shocks for the fish
placed into the well or released back to nature.
12. Commercial adjuncts that provide a little salt
can help the fish to deal with the stress.
Remember the oft quoted adage from Lee Wulff
"A good gamefish is too valuable to be caught only
once. The fish you release is your gift to another
angler."

Dear Santa,
My name is Kelsey Odom. I am a 3rd
grade student. I really liked my teacher
in 1st grade, Mrs. Anderson. My dog died
about 2 months ago and I would really
like something to remember him. This is
what he looks like he's black and white
and he has a blue collar and blue eyes. I
try to help my sister clean but she does
not let me, but I do clean my room. I also
help my mom and dad clean the kitchen,
living room, play room, and washing
room, but I do not clean the washing
room a.lot, because it has a lot of spiders
in it. So I do a lot of work outside. This
is what I do: I pick up trash, I feed the
dogs and I exercise. After my dog died I
got a new dog, his name is Little Bitt.
PS. I have a dream that my mom and dad
will get me more money and have a great
year.
Kelsey Odom


Dear Santa,

nice. I hope my mom get's a new bed be-
cause she has been wanting one for a long
time. I hope my dad comes home for
Christmas, he lives in Kentucky I hope I
get a new four-wheeler.

Dear Santa,
On your trip around the world, I
hope you stop by Madison this year. I
don't want much at all this year. I just
want my family to be happy. I would
like to have an awesome Christmas this
year. But that's not all. I also would love
to have a go-kart, so I can ride around
in my yard. A four-wheeler would be
great, so I can ride in the woods. Thank
you, Santa COla-)l,, u 't *_:,;.,, ..;:w ,: ." .
See you this Christmas,
Skylor Mathis

Dear Santa,
The thing that I want the most is for
all the hungry children to have food in
their stomachs, a roof over their heads
and some clothes on their backs. They
all deserve these things.
The five specific things that I want
for Christmas are I want to have a
Playstation 3 because it has very good
graphics and it has a lot of games to it.
The second thing I want is a four-
wheeler because I learned how to drive
one, but I don't have one to drive. The
third thing I want is a Wrestling ring
for my toy wrestlers because, I am play-
ing on my bed or on the floor it's not re-
alistic. The fourth thing that I want is a
basketball hoop. I have a ball but not a
hoop.
The fifth thing I want is to be with
my whole family on Christmas because
it is more fun to be with your family
Merry Christmas,

Dear Santa,
I want a cast for my sister She has
a broken arm. My grandma is very
sick and I want a cell phone for her. I
want a cell phone for her because she
can call me.
I got some questions for you. How
does your reindeer fly? Does your elf's
fly with you in the sleigh? Is it really
cold at the North Pole? Does your rein-
deer have pixy dust?
Sincerely.
Lourenda

can ride it. The second thing I want is a
new wrestling belt to wrestle with my
cousin. The third thing I want is a Play

things,i yqq ~' ..dth1,9.p. .

Dear Santa,


It's getting pretty close to Christ-
mas. I know that you are going to be
very busy But if you have enough time,
I'd like for people to quit littering our
community That is what my wish for
Christmas would be.
But Santa if I've been e tremely
good. I'd also like to have a little rack
that goes on my four- wheeler to hold
stuff.
So, Santa thank you for making are
community great and hopefully you
will be able to bring the rack for my 4-
wheeler. Thank you for all of the other
stuff you do.
Merry Christmas,
Lane Peavy

a beagle for Christmas, so my brother
and I can go hunting in the woods with
my dad.
That is about all I want for Christ-

I'm acting bad but I still ignore them
because I know you gave me the stuff I
have been reasiving all my Christmas
gift came from you so I wrote this letter
to you Santa because your my favorite
charictor.

Dear Santa,
I believe that the most thing you
could bring me would be me spending
time with my family and thank you for
all the times before. Merry Christmas!
Santa I know the real meaning of
Christmas and I only desire few things.
Really the most thing I need and want
is a curling iron because I would like to
have early hair but really you don't
even have to bring that. As long as I
have the spirit and joy when being with
my family
PS. Don't worry about the cookies
they'll be there! Please tell everybody
at the North Pole Merry Christmas!
Jamie Downing


I have been working hard as a stu-
