2007 Was Eventful


This year was an eventful
year for me. I wish that I could
say that all of it was good,
but it has not been. That's
all right. We have good
times and bad times in our
lives and this year was no
different for me. All in all,'0
I have been blessed.
As most of my readers .
know, I was named the edi- ac
tor of The Madison County
Carrier and The Madison ac
Enterprise-Recorder this
year. The job has brought b
not only a new job title, but ,
also added responsibii- -ifU
ties. I enjoy my job im-
mensely and I would like i -
to take the time to tell my
staff "thank you for all you have done
this year." Although there are times
when I've lost my temper, I love the peo-
ple at the newspaper as if though they
were a second family.
Many of you also know that my fami-
ly moved into a new home this year. It is
a beautiful four-bedroom, two bath ranch
house in Lee. Dan Williams was the con-
tractor who built it. His workers included
Scott McClamma (son of Dehnis and Con-

nie), Dan's nephew Darren,
Roland (Rev. Doyle Glass's son-
in-law) and other capable
people. My family loves the
house.
My father fell and broke
his hip on October 5. Para-
medics Mac Leggett and
Tonya Shipp did a great
S job of helping me get my
) b'S father to the VA Hospital
-. in Lake City. It was scary
der 3% for a while, but a couple of
er months later, Daddy is up
l mbo and back to his old self.
.em.by Thank God for him having
innlSt, ,' medical attention and
:- thanks to all the people
i who prayed for him. God is
so gracious and good! Who
could ever doubt that when He sent His
only begotten, Son, Jesus Christ, to live
and die for us?
Aside from my family at home and
my family at work, I also have a third
family That family: is composed of my
friends and Christian brothers and sis-
ters. I attend Midway Church of God. I,
feel very comfortable there and the rest
of my family loves it. I am especially.
proud of the way that the youth and chil-
dren take up with my sister Abbie. Abbie
is mentally challenged. There are so
many young people in the world today
who don't take up the time people like
Abbie need with them, but these children
and teens are special and they show Ab-
bie love.
Not only are the members of the
church I attend my family, but also peo-
ple who share my love for Christ. Re-
member, we don't have to attend the
same church to go to Heaven.
May God bless you and your family
in the upcoming year!

New Year Season
It's time for New Year celebrations and food is al-
ways a part of the festivities. You may have a New
Year's Eve gathering and it's always time for snacks
while watching parades and football games. You may
host a family gathering and there's the traditional pot of
black-eyed peas. As you prepare food for celebrations,
USDA reminds us to keep foods fresh and safe to eat. If
food containing harmful bacteria is consumed, it could
cause foodborne illness. So, when you serve food, follow
this food safety checklist recommended by the U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture.
Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water
for a full 20 seconds before and after handling raw food.
Use plastic or other non-porous cutting boards. Cut-
ting boards should be run through the dishwasher or
washed with soap and hot water after each use.
Store raw meat, poultry, and seafood on a plate or
tray, so raw juices don't drip onto other foods.
Use one cutting board for raw meat products and an-
other one for salads and other ready-to-eat foods, or
wash cutting boards in between each use.
Never place cooked food on a plate that previously
held raw meat, poultry or seafood unless the plate has
been washed.
Don't spread bacteria with dirty sponges, dish-
cloths, or towels. Bacteria thrive in the moist areas of
these items where bits of food may also exist. Use paper
towels or freshly-cleaned sponges or cloths and soap and
hot water to clean food preparation surfaces.
When cooking meat, poultry and other dishes, use a
food thermometer to make sure foods are cooked to a
safe internal temperature.
When reheating sauces, soups, and gravies, bring
them to a boil. Heat other leftovers thoroughly to 165 EF
Make sure the refrigerator temperature is 40 OF or
below and 0 OF or below in the freezer. Occasionally ver-
ify these temperatures using an appliance thermometer.
Refrigerate of freeze perishables, prepared foods,
and leftovers within two hours.
Never defrost or marinate food at room tempera-
ture; use the refrigerator. You can also thaw foods in air-
tight packaging in cold Water(change the water every 30i
minutes, so the food continue to thaw). Or, thaw in the
microwave, if you'll be cooking the food immediately.'
Divide large amounts of leftovers into shallow con-
tainers for quick cooling in the refrigerator.
Don't over-fill the refrigerator. Cold air must circu-
late to keep food at a safe temperature.
For more information on keeping your food safe,
contact the Madison County Extension office.

Who is Barack Obama? Very interesting and some-
thing that should be considered in your choice. If you do
not ever forward anything else, please forward this to all
your contacts...this is very scarey to think of what lies
ahead of us here in our own United States...better heed
this and pray about it and share it.
We checked this out on "snopes.com". It is factual.
Check for yourself.
Who is Barack Obama? Probable U. S. presidential
candidate, Barack Hussein Obama was born in Honolu-
lu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a black MUS-
LIM from Nyangoma-Kogel, Kenya and Ann Dunham, a
white ATHIEST from Wichita, Kansas. Obama's parents
met at the University of Hawaii. When Obama was two
years old, his parents divorced. His father returned, to
Kenya. His mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a RADI-
CALI, Muslim from Indonesia.? When Obama was 6
years old, the family relocate to Indonesia. Obama att
ended a MUSLIM school in Jakarta. He also spent two
years in a Catholic school. Obama takes great care to
conceal the fact that he is a Muslim. He is quick to
point out that, "He was once a Muslim, but that he also
attended Catholic school."
Obama's political handlers are attempting to make it
appear that that he is not a radical. Obama's introduc-
tion to Islam came via his father, and that this influence
was temporary at best. In reality, the senior Obama re-
turned to Kenya soon after the divorce, and never again
had any direct influence over his son's education. Lolo
Soetoro, the second husband of Obama's mother, Ann
Dunham, introduced his stepson to Islam. Obama was
enrolled in a Wahabi school in Jakarta. Wahabism is the
RADICAL teaching that is followed by the Muslim ter-
rorists who are now waging Jihad against the western
world. Since it is politically expedient to be a CHRIST-
IAN when seeking major public office in the United
States, Barack Hussein Obama has joined the United
Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim
background.
ALSO, keep in mind that when he was sworn into of-
fice he DID NOT use the Holy Bible, but instead the Ko-
ran. Barack Hussein Obama will NOT recite the Pledge
of Allegience nor will he show any reverence for our
flag. While others place their hands over their hearts,
Obama turns his back to the flag and slouches. Let us all
remain alert concerning Obama's expected presidential

the obvious budget chal-
lenges in an environment
of cutbacks. Administra-
tors and financial special-
ists are essential to keep-
ing all the pieces coordi-
nated, delivered efficiently
and funded year after year.
Even then, the real work of
physically getting the. ser-
vices where they're need-
ed most remains.
According to their


"N/I~


website, "In the Big Bend
region, there are over 2,500
children receiving in-
home and out-of-home ser-
vices on any given day.
Many of these families are
coping with domestic viO-
lence, delinquent behav-
ior, parental drug and al-
cohol abuse or mental
health problems. When
adults are unable to pro-
vide children with a


healthy home environ-
ment, the consequences
are enormous. At Big
Bend Community Based
Care, our sole purpose is
to provide the highest
quality child welfare pre-
ventioh and intervention
services to children and
their families within their
communities. Our vision
is to create local owner-
ship of the child protec-


tion system in each of our
14 communities. By doing
so, the quality of life for
the children and families
we serve will dramatically
improve and the inci-
dences of child maltreat-
ment will decrease. Our
14 counties include Madi-
son, Bay, Calhoun, Gulf,
Holmes, Jackson, Wash-
ington, Jefferson, Leon,
Franklin, Gadsden, Liber-
ty, Taylor and Wakulla."
During the year-end
charity requests, the
statement "the money
raised in Madison stays in
Madison" was included to
increase attraction to that
particular organization.
There are instances how-
ever where vital support
services are necessarily
located outside the county,
especially when part of a
multi-county agency.
Sometimes this is due to
population requirements,
where multiple rural
counties must be com-
bined, other times it's
simply due to the shortage
of specialists available to

While Maurice was talking with Stephens, he ob-
served marijuana residue on the floorboard directly be-
low Stephens.

A very common, in fact epidemically common,
comment made by residents, and especially by con-
.:rned parents of Madison County, is that there is sim-
.ly."nothing around for kids to do." Typically these
'comments accompany further discussion about drug,
'alchol, crime or school problems.
,:. Fortunately, Otis and Essie Norton are doing some-
,ting about it. In Greenville. at 1376 SW Grand Street.
?iha Nortons have opened the Greenville Madison
'"e0ning Center, a multi-purpose center, where kids
. id adults can participate in programs ranging from
goiiw and movie night, to GED prep, to full banquet
Janiparty facilities.
I :One program that is really getting attention is the
Ist First Ever Wan Bark Character and Modeling En-
richment program. The program is designed to pro-
iote positive character through creative means. In
essence, the program uses the strong draw of modeling
to get kids to establish broader skills and character de-
velopment, including education and citizenship.
Program founder, organizer and instructor Wanda
Barkley, has already received notable recognition, win-
ning the 2006 21st Century Award for Best Character
EduMCtion After School Program in the state of Flori-
da, for her work with the Havana Elementary School.
The program is very affordable. Interested parties
should phone (850) 948-9932 for details. Additionally,
since many candidates are from economically chal-
lenged conditions, donations and sponsors are ex-
tremely appreciated.
Under the planning of a Board of Directors, the
Greenville Madison Learning Center is developing
programs for all members of the family From spon-
sored programs to karaoke night parties, there is defi-
nitely going to be something to do.

Madison Garden Club Starts Junior


Garden Club At Greenville Elementary


By Terri Rykard
On December 14, President Mina Bloodworth, Vice-
President Terri Rykard, Secretary Sara, Adams, Dolly
Ballard and Rebecca Miller directed the second activity
of the Greenville Junior Garden Club at Greenville Ele-
mentary School.
The fifth grade class learned about the mechanics of
floral design and each constructed his or her holiday
centerpiece to take home with them. The children had
a great time and surprised themselves with their fan-
tastic designs. Garden Club members donated all the
materials.
Sara Adams, an advanced floral designer and Future
Flower Show judge instructed the class while the re-
maining four assisted the students. The class was so
proud of their work.
At their kickoff event last month, the Garden Club
hosted a gourd painting class' encompassing several
grades. The students painted the gourds, making bird-
houses. They also learned about growing and handling
gourds. Bloodworth talked to the kids about the seeds
inside the gourds and told them how to plant the seeds
to grow their own at home.
The purpose of the Junior Garden Club is to teach
elementary age children about horticulture, their envi-
ronment, floral design and taking time to share activi-
ties with other kids. In addition, Garden Club members
are building rich memories of their own in the process.

Santa


Comes


Early To


Lee


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Lee Volunteer Fire Department asked Santa for
a special favor this year. to come early and visit the kids
in Lee for a little while during their Christmas party
held on December 15.
"Considering how good the boys and girls have been
this year, how could I say
no, especially doing -':
it with such a fine ....
group as the .
LVFD?" asked : C.-r'.
Santa. Since :-:.-; ..
his sleigh was *' ';
in the process of
being loaded, how- T ....-
ever, Santa had to
leave it at the North Pole,
instead hitching a ride on the LVFD fire engine.
Santa pulled into the fire station at 7 p.m. sharp. Met
with huge cheers from kids and.adults alike, Santa dis-
mounted his ride and immediately began hugging all
the boys and girls, including some very special little tots
experiencing their first visit with Santa.
With a little help from his friends at the LVFD, and
the generous residents of Lee and Madison County,
there were plenty of gifts and refreshments to go
around. "Lee is one of Santa's favorite places anywhere
and I'll see you next year!" Santa exclaimed.

Happenings At First Baptist Church Of ladison


By Nell Dobbs
As 2007 is ending and, as we've remembered and cele-
brated the birth of our Savior, may we always rejoice in
the blessing of His unending love. Amen. He humbled
Himself and became man in whose tiny heart beat the
Hope of the world. We are to humble ourselves and pray
in order that God may heal our land.
We ourselves are humbled as we are the recipients of
much love, visits, food and prayers.
There are many ill among us and we pray for them:
Barbara Whittle seriously ill at Shands; Glen Baker as
she fell and hurt herself; Simon Kinsey in Rehab.; Brett
Copeland with serious problems; WC. Copeland; Vernon
Adams back in the hospital; and all others.
Congratulations to Leigh and Kevin McNutt and their
new babies, born December 20. They are Savannah and
Dalton and we pray for them and all their family All did
well and are home. Each was not five pounds.


Wise men seek.Him still or another way -wise men
a still seek Him.
A very special service joyous in that Sweet Little
Reese Rutherford, along with her parents, Kim and Will,
walked the aisle with her as she came forward, saying she
came to know the Lord. As they stood at the front, her
grandparents Plain joined them, along with Preacher and
Mrs. Heard for whom we have mixed feelings of thank-
fulness and sorrow as they will be leaving us. We've been
so blessed as they have labored among us this past year.
We offer earnest prayers for them in all the years ahead
and also for Sweet Little Triple R (Reese) all her days.
It was great to have Clay Bass home and for Debbie
and him to sing "O Come All Ye Faithful." So touching.
Dennis and Thelma read of the angels announcing
the birth of Jesus and then lit the Shepherd's Candle.
Buddy McWilliams, Deacon of the Week, read Scrip-
ture and then gave the offertory prayer.


The choir, in their beautiful new robes, sang "Re-
deemed to Praise."
The message was "Doing What the Shepherds Did." 1.
They paid attention. 2. They acted on the best information
they had. 3. They shared their witness. 4. They glorified
and praised God:;We are not to just stand there, but to be
doing something. '
By December 30, we are to have given items for our
new preacher and family *
Monday on Christmas Eve, there was a candlelight
service and Lord's Supper with Jargo and Eunice Clark
lighting the Christ Candle.
On Sunday December 30, Brother Gene Stokes will be
our guest speaker.
A very blessed new year and all year of 2008.
May we always seek the King of Kings and Lord of
Lords and follow the Star.
Amen.


TWo Churches Reach Out To The World Through YouTube


At least two churches
in Madison County are
using technological inno-
vation and the Internet to
spread the gospel around
the world.
Greg Marr, youth pas-
tor at Lee United
Methodist Church, posts
videos on YouTube of
events happening at the
church or featuring the
church youth in the com-
munity
Marr's creations in-
clude a spoof of the
theme from the television
show, Cheers. Marr used
sepia-toned photographs,
combined with the song
"Where Everyone Knows
Your Name" which Chris-
tian lyrics instead of the
original words. The result
is an outstanding video.
Probably one of the


most comical yet mov-
ing productions is a
video montage of the
church's WOW (Wonders
on Wednesday) program
set to "Jesus Loves Me."
One video that Marr
shot of a young lady
named Savannah Timby
sang of a song called
"Mercy Said No" has re-
ceived over 800 hits. An-
other one of a young lady
named Faith dancing has
received over 400 hits.
Marr has also posted
videos of Rev. Bob Laid-
law, pastor at First UMC
Methodist Church of
Madison speaking at a
church charge confer-
ence, and of Julie Maults-
by speaking at the
church.
"I made a conscious
effort not to use GodTube


(a service like YouTube
geared to the church) be-
cause they were not the
people I wanted to reach,"
he said.
Marr said that much
of the stuff on YouTube
is smut and, sometimes,
someone can be on there
looking for something
else and stumble across
the church videos.
In addition to his
faith-based videos, Marr
also has videos of stu-
dents in the church par-
ticipating in football
games, parades and band
events.
Marr's videos can be
viewed online at
www.voutube.com/brudd
ag.
Jacob Bembry posts
videos of events at Mid-
way Church of God on


YouTube. One video that
Bembry produced a
slideshow featuring pho-
tos from the past and pre-
sent has received over
2,600 hits.
"One comment I re-
ceived on the video, came
from Kenya," Bembry
said. "Another comment
was from an atheist in
West Virginia, who was
apparently trolling
through YouTube, check-
ing out church videos.
The man writes books
and gives speeches, try-
ing to convince people to
become atheists. At least,


229-263-5503\

he saw the video and I
know that the Word of the
Lord. (even on YouTube)
will not return void."
Bembry joined
YouTube five months ago
when he posted a
,slideshow of his family
entitled "Family: 100
Years to Live" (with the
song "100 Years" by Five
for Fighting) and a video
of the Midway Church of
God Kids Krusade enti-
tled "Midway Church of
God Kids Cowboy Up," set
to the song "Shout to the
Lord."
Since joining


2/19-H East Screven St. *Quitman


04f


YouTube, Bembry has
posted 15 videos, includ-
ing videos of the youth at
the church singing. One
video entitled "Rapture -
It Could Happen To You"
is a borrowed video,
which shows the Rapture
taking place during a
church service.
In addition to the
church and family videos,
Bembry also has a video
saluting this year's state
championship team.
SBembry's videos can

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

Senior Director Of The Epilepsy Association Visits Kiwanians


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
At the Thursday, December 13, Kiwanis Club meet-
ing, Scott Mehle, Executive Director of the Epilepsy As-
sociation of the Big Bend, was the guest speaker. He was
there to teach and dispel myths aboutathe complication
that occurs in people worldwide. *
President Frances Ginn called the meeting to order
and started out with announcements. After dinner, and
a frog joke from one fnember, Scott Mehle was intro-
duced and took the podium. He began with a short ques-
tion and answer period before tackling the serious
truths of the malady.
Epilepsy is a symptom of a disorder of the brain
that affects over 135,000 in the state of Florida alone.
Caused by any number of events, it most often occurs af-'
ter a head injury or a stroke. Seen in the highest per-
centage of new cases involving children and seniors,
Epilepsy can affect anyone at any age. One out of ten
people will have a single seizure at some point during
their lifetime.
Seizures range in degree from grand mal also
known as tonic-clonic, the most powerful, petit mal or


absence seizures, which are so mild they might not be
noticed by others, to complex partial, or limbic seizures,
which originate in one part of the brain causing symp-
toms that vary depending on the part of the brain in-
volved.
A person experiencing seizures, especially children,
typically undergoes convulsions or rhythmic jerking in
their arms and legs. Most of the time seizures are not a
medical emergency, even with persons with epilepsy,
however, if the person does not have epilepsy, if they are
slow to recover, have difficulty breathing, if the seizure
is recurring or lasts more than five minutes, or if the
person injures himself during the episode, then med-
ical attention is required. A seizure in a person who
does not have epilepsy could be a sign of a serious ill-
ness such as infection.
When witnessing a seizure, it is important to re-
main calm. Make the sufferer as comfortable as possi-
ble, protecting the head from any harm. Gently roll
them onto their side. While it is a myth that a person
with epilepsy can swallow their tongue, this is a physi-
cal impossibility, they may still choke during the
episode. Loosen any ties or tight clothingthat could ob-

?other objects that could break or become a danger in
themselves during the seizure.
It is extremely important to time the seizure. The av-
erage seizure can last anywhere from a couple of sec-
onds to five minutes. Anything over five minutes is un-
usual and medical attention is required. When the per-
son is finished seizing, they may be hazy and disorient-
ed. This is normal. Speak serenely as possible, reassur-
ing them while checking for any injuries sustained dur-
ing the incident. If there are any or if the seizure lasts
longer than five minutes, medical assistance is to be no-
tified.
There remains much debate over what actually
causes epilepsy, however some common triggers have
been recorded, such as blue and red flashing lights,
strobe or dance lights, sleep deprivation, missed med-
ications and some foods. In about 70 percent of diag-
nosed cases, the cause of epilepsy is unknown.

AGk OJE A BROje4 REL4WE^ PL0DER


By Tyrra B Meserve
GreenePublishingInc.
Though not native to Florida, the brown
recluse spider is making itself at home here.
The brown recluse, also known as the fiddle-
back, is not so reclusive that they are un-
willing to travel in boxes, bags and freight, to
new and exotic locations, sometimes finding
a home right here in the sunshine state.
Wrongfully blamed for similar bites from
their Hobo spider cousins, a recluse bite still
packs quite a wallop and can land a person
in the hospital quicker than that little guy
can creep back into hiding. Not to panic,
know the signs and when to save a speci-
men. Mash first, and a few questions will be
answered now before it's too late.
A native of South America, three species
of the brown recluse have now been inter-
cepted and occasionally established popula-
tions in single buildings and some scattered
locations here in Florida. Known as the fid-
dle back or violin spider because of the vio-
lin-shaped marking on its head and thorax,
the recluse spider is just that, a recluse.
It seeks and prefers seclusion and hides
during the day, waiting for night to come,
where it will venture out to seek prey
Though it may produce a silky protection,
recluse spiders are not big on web building.
They prefer to occupy dark, undisturbed
sites, both indoors and out. They thrive in


human altered environments.
Inside the recluse may find a suitable
spot in any number of places. From attics to
basements, crawlspaces to cellars, a heated
home means the recluse has yearlong lodg-
ings. They like to hide in clothing and bed-
ding that is not regularly used or in shoes
that have not been used recently Behind fur-
niture and in storage boxes are both fa-
vorites of the recluse as well.
Outside, they can be found in barns,
storage sheds and garages. An irregular web
of off-white sticky threads may mark its
presence underneath logs, loose stones or
stacks of lumber. Nocturnal hunters, they
like their area dry and dark.
Most recluse bites occurwhen the spi-
der has been accidentally disturbed. They
are non-aggressive in nature and scavenge
most of their food, delighting in dead in-
sects. They can become trapped by a person
rolling over onto them at night as they for-
age or otherwise forced into contact by a per-
son cleaning areas that have gone un-
touched for some time. That, however,
makes their bite no less serious. Though
some people do not feel the bite and never
see the spider, the brown recluse bite is
necrotic, breaking down and destroying tis-
sue at the site.
At the start, the recluse bite may resem-
ble the bite of a mosquito or other insect

bite, however within a couple of hours the
person bitten might notice blisters around
the area of the bite. Then, accompanied by
swelling and severe pain, a bull's eye pattern
may start to appear. A red blister surround-
ed by a bluish area with a narrow whitish
separation is what gives the wound its bull's
eye appearance and is hard to the touch.
Within 12 to 24 hours, it usually becomes ap-
parent whether or not the bite will become
necrdtic because of it turning purple in col-
or. If the skin does not turn purple or ex-
press necrotic symptoms within 48-96 hours
then it will riot do so. If however, the site
does turn purple, it will then turn black as
the cells die. Eventually the core of the bite
falls away leaving behind a deep pit that
with time will fill with scar tissue. Some peo-
ple remain unaffected by the recluse bite,
while others experience either immediate or
delayed effects as the venom kills living tis-
sue at the bite site. Many brown recluse bites
cause only a little red bump and heal with-
- =m o- -1 - .. ." lr Lx '


out severe scarring. Fatalities are extremely
rare, unless there is an allergic reaction; the
victim is a young child, elderly or otherwise
in a compromised physical condition.
It is extremely difficultfor a physician to
accurately diagnose a brown recluse bite
without a specimen, so no matter how
squashed, try to preserve the spider for com-
parison. A mushed spider is better than no
spider at all, so if there is an empty pill bot-
tle, small jar or envelope handy stuff the
critter in, remain calm, and immediately
seek medical attention. An ice pack on the
site of the bite and antihistamines may be
used to reduce swelling and pain.
Always check clothing before putting it
on and shake those bed linens before you lay
your head. A few safety measures will not
only help to avoid close contact but also keep
those Little Miss Muffet shrieks from filling
the house, so look that six-eyed arachnid
right in his semi-circle cluster and let-him
know he can't hide here.

mission (FWC) announces its 17th Annual Manatee De-
cal Art Contest and invites middle and high school art
students to submit their manatee artwork for considera-
tion. Students must work through their school's art

allowed per school.
Sales from the manatee decals provide funds for the
state's manatee protection program. Decals are avail-
able at county tax collectors' offices in Florida with a do-
nation of $5 or more to the Save the Manatee Trust
Fund. Money from the sale of these decals supports
manatee protection efforts, such as rehabilitation, res-
cue, research, enforcement and public education. In
June. 15,000 decals with artwork provided by Coral Reef
Senior High School student Natasha Thornton were dis-
tributed statewide for sale until June of 2008.
On Feb. 14, 2008, FWC staff will judge all qualified
entries. The winning design will be used to create a final
decal for distribution to county tax offices in July
To see previous manatee decals, please visit FWC's
Web site at wr.AIvFWC.com Contest information is
listed on the manatee pages.

More Than 200 Grant Applications Received

For Renewable Energy Technologies


The Florida Department of Environmental Pro-
tection (DEP) and the Florida Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Services (DACS) received 215
grant proposals this fall for renewable energy,tech-
nologies. Part of DEP's Renewable Energy Technolo-
gies Grant Program and DACS' Farm-to-Fuel Grant
Program, the grants are designed to stimulate capi-
tal investment in the state and promote and enhance
the statewide utilization of renewable energy tech-
nologies.
"Through the Renewable Energy Technologies
Grant Program, the Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection is encouraging investment in re-
newable energy projects that promote energy diversi-
ty and economic growth," said DEP Secretary
Michael W. Sole. "By investing in alternative energy
technologies, Florida is exploring strategies to help
prevent pollution and reduce greenhouse gas emis-
sions."
DEP received 139 grant proposals seeking more
than $200 million in
grant funding and pro-
viding almost $700 mil-
lion in cost share for re-
newable energy projects. .
The proposals, which in-
clude' technologies such
as biomass, solar and hy-
drogen, will now be eval-
ouated.by the state based
on a number of different ,J
criteria, including cost
share percentage, eco-
nomic development po-
tential, energy efficien-
cy and how the project
fosters public awareness
of renewable energy
technologies.
This year, the Florida Legislature appropriated
$12.5 million for the Renewable Energy Technologies
Grant Program to support projects using renewable
energy sources such as hydrogen, biomass, solar en-
ergy, geothermal energy, wind energy, ocean energy,
waste heat and hydroelectric power. Grants will be
awarded in February 2008 at a maximum of $2.5 mil-
lion per project. In addition to the Renewable Energy
Technologies Grant Program, the Florida Legisla-
ture also provided $3.5 million for the Solar Energy
Rebate Program and almost $1 million to promote en-
ergy efficiency. Last year, DEP and DACS provided
$15 million in grant funding to eight organizations
during the first year of the Renewable Energy Tech-
nologies Grant Program.,
One of the top priorities of DACS Commissioner
Charles Bronson is Florida's "Farm-to-Fuel" initia-
tive, a wide-ranging effort to see that the agriculture
industry produces 25 percent of the state's energy
needs by the year 2025. The initiative is designed to
and Cfearintg & (ackhoe Qervices

decrease Florida's dependence on foreign oil while at
the same time giving the state's agricultural produc-
ers additional crops to keep their land in agricul-
ture.
"We're committed to doing everything that we
can to create a renewable energy industry in Flori-
da," Bronson said. "With our long growing season,
millions of acres of farm and timber land and ample
sunshine, there's no reason that Florida shouldn't be
a leader in this industry."
For the Farm-to-Fuel Grants Program, DACS re-
ceived 76 grant proposals seeking more than $161
million in grant funding and providing almost $575
million in cost share for bioenergy projects. The pro-
posals will now be evaluated based on factors such as
using Florida-grown crops or biomass to produce en-
ergy, expanding agribusiness in the state, prelimi-
nary, market research and efficient use of energy
and material resources.
In 2007, the Florida Legislature established the
Farm-to-Fuel Grants
Program to provide
matching grants for
demonstration, commer-
cialization, and research
s- and development pro-
jects relating to bioener-
gy. As part of this pro-
Sgram, the Legislature
appropriated $25 million
Sin matching grants to
\ -.'. stimulate investment in
,, energy projects that pro-
Sduce bioenergy from
Florida-grown crops or
biomass..
On July 13, 2007, Gov-
ernor Charlie Crist set a
new direction for
Florida's energy future by signing a groundbreaking
set of Executive Orders during the Serve to Preserve
SFlorida Summit on Global Climate Change. The three
, Executive Orders represent the Governor's commit-
ment to addressing global climate change, a promise to
reduce Florida's greenhouse gases, increase our ener-
gy efficiency and pursue more renewable energy
sources, such as solar and wind technologies, as well as
alternative energy, such as ethanol and hydrogen: In
addition, Governor Crist committed to partnering with
Germany and the United Kingdom to discuss and pro-
mote initiatives that broaden the Kyoto Protocol and
reduce the emission of greenhouse gases beyond 2012.
