Burglaries On The Rise In Madison


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A rash of burglaries
hit the City of Madison
last week.
The first burglary was
reported on Wednesday,
January 16.
According to a report
by Sgt. Jimbo Roebuck, he
investigated a burglary
and grand theft at the Joy
Food Store, on 472 West
Base Street.
When Roebuck en-
tered, he checked the in-
side of the store and did
not observe anyone there,


but he did see an asphalt
rock lying inside the
store.
Roebuck processed the
scene, which included a
shattered window.
The second burglary,
reported January 17, hap-
pened at the Pure Gas Sta-
tion, located at 296 East
Base Street.
Upon Officer Tiffany
Travis's arrival, she ob-
served that the glass on
the front door had been
broken.
No suspect was found
at the scene.


The owner of the
store was present and
was able to identify all of
the missing items.
The third burglary
occurred Friday night,
January 18.
Officers were dis-
patched to the business
annex at the hospital.
Upon their arrival, they
discovered that the bur-
glar had removed the
windowpanes from the.
bathroom window to
gain access. Once inside,
the burglar had appar-
entlv rifled through


drawers and knocked pa-
pers on the desks onto
the floor.
Two employees who
arrived on the scene
looked ht everything and
could not determine if
anything was missing.
Sgt. William Greene
processed the scene.
If you have any infor-
mation on these burglar-
ies, please call the Madi-
son Police Department at
973-5077.

Town Meeting To Be Held February 19


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On February 19, a town meeting
is scheduled from 5:30 p.m. until
8:30 p.m. atthe Madison County
High School cafeteria. The purpose
of the meeting is to give residents
of the county the opportunity to ex-
ercise their central role in county
planning. There are several strate-
gic planning guides that have been
generated from previous communi-
ty involvement, one being "Vision
2010." There are also elements of
the process that have an association
to the county's "Comprehensive
Plan."
Vision 2010 began approximate-
ly ten years ago as a grass roots or-
ganization of concerned citizens
working toward the development of
Madison County Now, ten years


County Coordinator Allen
Cherry wants all county
residents to be heard during
the Vision 2020 planning
process, which he also ad.
dresses as Executive Director
of the Madison County Devel-
opment Council.
later, the process has been refined
and is due to be reviewed. New
views will be heard and incorporat-
ed and then a new guide issued.
The new guide is appropriately
named, "Vision 2020."
As far as the Comprehensive
Plan, according to the Planning and
Zoning section of the county web-
site, "the Comprehensive Plan was
adopted in April, 1992 and has been
amended 5 times. The Land Devel-
opment Regulations were adopted
at the same time and are amended


by Ordinance and approved bythe,
Board when deemed in the best in-:
terest of the County"
The key words in these excerpts
are "concerned citizens" and
"deemed in the best interest of the
County," again pointing to the cen-
tral role county residents are ex-
pected to play County Coordinator
Allen Cherry, who also serves as
Executive Director of the Madison
County Development Council
(MCDC), wants to ensure the maxi-
mum community participation pos-
sible. County Planner Jeanne Bass
and Administrative Office Manager
Sherilyn Pickels, who is also Secre-
tary of the MCDC, will therefore be
facilitating the process.

Work Is A

Four-Letter Word
Pardon me if I sound exhausted, but it's a good kind of ex-
hausted. I'm tired. I spent the weekend catching up on work
that I had been intending to do for a while. On Sunday night
(when I usually do not work at all), I had to finish something up
for the newspaper that I could not find time to do at work. On
Monday evening, I was covering a high school football awards
banquet for another three hours.
Work is a four-letter word. During the hectic day of writ-
ing, proofreading, having to assign things that I cannot seem to
get done to others, answering phone calls and tons of work-re-
,lated emails, hurrying to traffic accidents, having to help type
stuff that comes in that the typesetter doesn't have time to get
to or that he can't interpret and having to help the graphics de-
partment make corrections, I have no time for myself.
Then there are the sounds of work: 'Are you sure that's
right?" "Can't you go any faster?" "You've only done 10 stories
today?" "Hurry up and get to the traffic crash. Drive careful.
Don't forget to buckle up." "I can't read this." ."Ja-
cob...Jacob...Jacob...Jacob!!! Are you listening tome?"
The voices come from different people and from different
sources. Sometimes, they are only beating out the rhythm to
the twisted melody that my mind is playing.
Other voices come.
"Haven't seen you in a while; where have you been?"
"Work."
Work is a four-letter word,but so is love.
Sometimes, I hate my work, butmostlyI love it Ilove the
feeling of being tired when I know thatI have been working.
Some people in Madison Conty go tobed atnighttrying
to get the sounds of conveyor b61ts or chickens or cows or
diesel semis or children out of their minds. They are the
sounds of the people'swork. I gotobedwith words inmymind.
Many of the times, I don't try to get the words out of my
mind.I love being a writer. I am a writer. There are not many
people:who get to live out their dreams, so, for the most part, I
lovemyjob.
I thank God for my job, although I'm not always apprecia-
tive of it the way thatI know I should be. The next time I think
about work being a four-letter word, I also need to remember
that love also has four letters.

What's The Big Deal?

Submitted By Sharon Cressley:

Paul Harvey says:
I don't believe in Santa Claus, but I'm not going to
sue somebody for singing a Ho-Ho-Ho song in December.
I don't agree with Darwin, but I didn't go out and hire a
lawyer when my high school teacher taught his Theory
of Evolution
Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not be
endangered because someone says a 30-second prayer
before a football game.
So what' s the big deal? It's not like somebody is up
there reading the entire book of Acts. They're just talk-
ing to a God they believe in and asking him to grant safe-
ty to the players on the field and the fans going home
from the game.
But it's a Christian prayer, some will argue.
Yes, and this is the United States of America a
country founded on Christian principles. According to
our very own phone book, Christian churches outnum-
ber all others better than 200-to-1. So what would you ex-.
pect -- somebody chanting Hare Krishna?
If I went to a football game in Jerusalem, I would ex-
pect to hear a Jewish prayer.
If I went to a soccer game in Baghdad, I would expect
to hear a Muslim prayer.
If I went to a ping pong match in China, I would ex-
pect to hear someone pray to Buddha.
And I wouldn't be offended. It wouldn't bother me
one bit.
When in Rome ..
But what about the atheists? Is another argument.
What about them?
Nobody is asking fhem to be baptized. We're not go-
ing to pass the colledtion plate. Just humor us for 30 sec-
onds. If that's asking too much, bring a Walkman or a
pair of ear plugs. Go to the bathroom. Visit the conces-
sion stand. Call your lawyer!
Unfortunately, one or two will make that call. One or
two will tell thousands what they can and cannot do. I
don't think a short prayer at a football game is going to
shake the world's foundations.
Christians are just sick and tired of turning the oth-
er cheek while pur courts strip us of all our rights. Our
parents and grandparents taught us to pray before eat-
ing; to pray before we go to sleep. ,
Our Bible tells us to pray without ceasing. Now a
handful of people and their lawyers are telling us to
cease praying.
God, help us.
And if that last sentence offends you, well ... just sue
me.
The silent majority has been silent too long. It's time
we let that, one or two who scream loud enough to be
heard that the vast majority don't care what they want.
It is time the majority rules! It's time we tell them, you
don't have to pray; you don't have to say the pledge of al-
legiance; you don't have to believe in God or attend ser-
vices that honor Him. That is your right, and we will
honor your right... But by golly, you are no longer going
to take our rights away. We are fighting back ... and we
WILL WIN!
God bless us one and all ... especially those who de-
nounce Him, God bless America, despite all her faults.
She is still the greatest nation of all.
God bless our service men who are fighting to pro-
tect our right to pray and worship God..
2008 will be the year the silent majority is heard and
we put God back as the foundation of our families and
institutions... and our Military come home from all the
wars.
'Keep looking up.
'AND THAT'S THE REST OF THE STORY'

Part 3

Living With Little People


Well, we are going Dackl again to SeptemDer, 007,
when this was written, continuing this series about Little
People.

Trinity and Karic are now three, Donovan is two,
and we have since been blessed with yet another new ad-
dition, Kelsea, who is now six-months-old. With two
boys and two girls around entertaining us now, some-
thing is always happening at grandma and grandpa's
house. We try to have family night dinners every
Wednesday night, where everyone is here for dinner and
some family time.
:The intelligence of to three year ds sila
ad delight us. i am totally convinced that a humanffrom
newborn to five years old learns more each and every
day of their lives, even before they ever start school.
They are like little sponges and are always soaking
up knowledge. That's why I feel it's important for moth-
ers and fathers to interact in their child's lives everyday
Before these little people become a person in school.
At this age they are still learning; they get used to
routines, and what is expected of them during their
days. They take on more responsibilities, such as, going
potty (properly), washing their hands before they eat,
picking up their toys, putting things back where they be-
long, getting dressed, putting on their shoes and jackets.
They address people by name properly, by using yes
ma'am, no sir, please and thank you, etc. They ask why
things are what they are, and keep asking until they are
happy with your answer. If they get a no for an answer,
they want a reason why. The three older ones know how
to get to grandma and grandpa's house and usually hate
to leave. They know the value of money and that it can
buy things, or they can put it in their banks to get more
money. They always want to be helpful, although some-
times it can be a hindrance. We still usually allow them
to help us.
This year at Christmastime we had two three year
olds; one two, almost three year old; and a nine month
Sold. I couldn't even imag-
ine how much fun that was


going to be. Don't worry
we got lots of pictures.
Next week I should be
able to finish this series,
and bring us to the pre-
sent, and more thoughts
about the future.
See You Next Week!!
Here's a few more snap-
shots of my Little People!

VIEWPOINTS & OPINIONS


The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 3A


Get Fiscally Fit In 2008

New Year's resolutions often include one the get
more physically fit, but you may want to take a look at
your personal finances. Setting a goal to get into bet-
ter financial shape will help you achieve financial sta-
bility for your family The Federal Consumer Infor-
mation Center has some great ideas to get you started
on the right track.
First step, you need to determine where you are
right now. Add up your total take-home pay per
month, this is the amount of money you have to pay
monthly bills. Find a simple method to record all of
your expenses. At the end of a month, add up your to-
tal expenses and subtract them from your total in-
come. Is it a plus or minus? If you are running short,
you may need to trim flexible expenses. Those are the
bills that change each month. Food, utilities, and
clothing are examples of flexible expenses.
After you crunch the. numbers, come up with a
spending plan and stick to it. If you aren't sure how to
develop a plan, we have fact sheets at the Extension of-
fice that can help. You can also call and make an ap-
pointment for an individual session to learn the basic
steps.
If you think you just don't' have enough money to
make ends meet, try this exercise for a month or two.
Invest in a small notebook, put it in your pocket and
record everything you spend. Every time you take out
your wallet, write the date, what you purchased and
amount you spent. By doing this exercise you may be
shocked at the amount of money you spend without'
thinking about it. Mindless spending can let a lot of
cash slip through your hands. Once you discover
where you are spending money, you can make adjust-
ments.
Next step is to get yourself organized with a filing
system. If you don't have a system for keeping
records, you can waste a lot of time searching for im-
portant papers. How you organize and maintain your
records are a personal choice, the important thing is to
know where the information is located. Review your
active records annually and discard or update the in-
formation.. If you maintain records on a computer,
have a back-up plan in case electronic files are erased
or hard copies are destroyed or lost. Consider a safety
deposit box for legal papers, contracts, deeds and wills.
Another task to do in January is to go through old
files and get rid of records that are no longer useful.
Financial specialists suggest tossing old salary state-
ments, expired warranties and any other out of date
records that are taking up space. Keep unpaid bills,
credit card statements, current bank statements,
health benefit information an insurance policies.
Shred all person business before you toss it.
Once you organize your records, take the next step
and calculate your net worth. Next, take a look into
savings and investment strategies. If you don't have
one; you may.want to work on putting money into a
simple savings account for a rainy day fund. This type
of savings gives you money to pay for unexpected ex-
penses like a car repair.
All of these steps will have you get organized and
working to make your money go where you want it to
go..If you stick to.it, you wiP be paying bills on time,
Reducing debt and putting

tently emerge.
Academic and athlet-
ic victories are achieved
with mentors and pro-
t6g6s rising to the top.
So in an effort to bring
these pieces together, to
hopefully make the dry
reports more practical
and the success stories
more easily duplicated,
Greene Publishing, Inc.
is pleased to offer- a
three-part series, "The
Status of Madison
Schools."
Divided into the
three school levels; ele-
mentary, middle and
high, the series will give
readers a look behind
the curtain, as well as to
be introduced to some
local heroes working
tirelessly to make a dif-
ference.
Therefore, in prepa-
ration for the series,
everyone is urged to
contact Staff Writer

Homestead Tax


Referendum

By Jacob Bembry ,.
.GreenePublishing, Inc. ,
Voters will go to the polls Tuesday or early vote
SFriday or Saurday and cast their ballot inthe Presi-
dential preference primary While' this vote will help
determine Who the Presidential candidates will be, an-
other important part of the ballot will be the increased
homestead exemption referendum.
Many voters have heard that the current $25,000
. homestead exemption will double to $50,000 if the bal-
lot passes. It is true that the there wilbe $50,000 of po.
tertial exemption, but iit will be broken up over value
ranges and over the years.
One good example is for voters to suppose that they
own homestead property.valued at $100,000. Under the
new amendment, the first $25,000 would be exempt.
The next $25,000 would not be exempt, but the $25,000
after that is exempt and everything over that level is
not 'exempt.
"The $50,000 exemption will be broken into two
pieces. One piece is the first $25,000 of the taxed value.
The second part is not the next $25,000. Instead, it's the
$25,000 of taxed value between $50,000 and $75,000 that
is exempt.
Someone with a homestead value of $49,000 will
only get the standard $25,000 exemption. Someone with
a value of $59,000 will only get $34,000, which consists

of the first $25,000, plus the first $9,000.
Any amount over $75,000 will not qualify for the ex-
emption and only homes with an assessed value of
$75;000 or higher will receive the full benefit of the ex-
emption.

Hoggetowne Medieval Faire Opens-


Its Gates To Another Spectacular Year


By Rachel Walker
Step inside the gates of the Hoggetowne Medieval
Faire and you might forget that a world with electricity
and running water even exists outside the tree-lined
edges of the Alachua County Fairgrounds. In its 22nd
year, Hoggetowne and all of its participants have per-
fected the art of recreating an authentic Medieval mar-
ketplace.
Although it happens in Gainesville for only two
weekends a year, the Faire has gained a loyal following.
Over 50,000 guests are expected to travel its streets
on January 26-27 and February 1-3, 2008.
Patrons arriving early will get to be a part of the dai-
ly "Meet and Greet," what festival coordinator Linda
Piper calls the best part of the whole event. The entire
cast of characters, performers, jugglers, musicians and
dancers fill the streets to welcome the flood of guests ea-
gerly awaiting the opening of the gates at 10 a.m.
"I just love seeing all the entertainers in one place,"
Piper said. "The sights and the sounds are just so excit-
ing. To see the faces of the people as they enter and ex-
perience this is what I get the most joy from."
That's just the beginning. There is never a boring
moment at the Medieval Faire. Take your pick of enter-
tainment on eight stages, wander through the medieval
marketplace or indulge in a mouth-watering treat.
More than 150 talented artists from across the coun-
try will showcase their wares in the trades of weaving,
blacksmithing, leatherworking, woodcarving and jewel-
ry making. Enjoy all the fineries of the Middle Ages
while searching for the perfect gift or trinket.
If action and adventure are more your style, make
sure to see the knights joust, one of the most popular
Hoggetowne events. Knights in full.body armor race to-
ward each other on horseback to defend their honor and


prove their worth to the King and Queen of the court.
The Living Chessboard is also a must-see, with hu-
man chess pieces fighting for their spot on the board and
victory over their opponents.
A fun-filled day at the Faire will surely induce an ap-
petite. Indulge your taste buds at the food court with an
array of delicacies including barbecue ribs, bloomin'
onions, sweet potato fries, turkey legs and a variety of
desserts.
'


wax hands and games will create an exciting day for
everyone.
"It's so great to be able to provide this experience to
children who learn about medieval studies in their
schools," Piper said. "They get a chance to actually
come to the faire and experience it."
Creations from talented local students entered in the
Student Art & Essay Contest will also be on display in
the Pavilion Theatre.
Whether you have never visited the Faire or you are
a loyal attendee, there will be something new and excit-.
ing for everyone to enjoy at Hoggetowne.. Spend a week-,
end this year experiencing one of North Central Flori-
da's most anticipated annual events. You won't regret
it. ,
The Faire is produced by the City of Gainesville's ,
Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs
and will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., the last weekend :
of January and first weekend of February, and from 9:30
a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 1, for School Day. :Tickets ,
are $12 for adults and $6 for kids ages 5-17. Tickets may .
be purchased in advance at Omni Book Store on SW 34th
Street in the Westgate Plaza. The Alachua County Fair-
grounds is situated east of Gainesville on 39th Avenue
and SR 121, adjacent to the Gainesville Regional Air-
port. Please, no pets permitted. For more information,
visit www.gvlculturalaffairs.org or call (352) 334-ARTS.

By Tyrra B Meserve
Gree ePublishing, Inc.
According to the National Association
of Realtors, 49 percent of all houses sold are
sold by curb appeal. Simple tricks to boost
your curb appeal can not only help your
house sell faster but a little money spent in
the right places can also pay off big when it
comes to the cash paid for your home when
it is bought. Lea-n what you can do to get
the most bang for your buck when it's your
turn to show off your curb appeal, after all
it is your money that you want well spent.
A large amount of prospective buyers
decide whether or not a house is worth tak-
ing a further look at before they even
breach the front door. It is the view they re-
ceive driving tip that leaves the first im-
pression, for better or: worse. For most
homeowners it is difficult to view their own
home from a buyer's point of view. Being
that it is home, a person becomes blind to
its faults. When it comes time to sell, a

uncared for. A fresh coat of paint can
makean out of shape house come alive. Use
a neutral color as it appeals to a broader
range of buyers. A good accent color
around the trim is a good way to give the
property a little extra to stand out in a
crowd,
Small touches such as a pressure wash-

other way to get your house to sparkle in the

to make the house look like a well loved
home. A little time and elbow grease
goes a long way to help a house's curb ap-
peal.
Take a look around at thelandscaping,
your buyer will.If the foliage is overgrown,
trim it, if the grass is tall, mow it. Trimming
and hedging may take a little work but hard-
ly any money and the payoff is well worth it.
A seller may also choose to put a couple of


well-placed flowerpots or some new mulch
to give the house that little something extra.
Finally, take a look at the roof. Though
hiring a roofer could be more costly it can
save homeowner money in the long run.
When told by an inspector that the roof
needs to be replaced, more often than not
the buyer will ask for it to be done prior to
sale, so it would be prudent for the seller to
,get it done to use it to.their advantage. A
new roof adds value to the home and one
more feather in the cap of the homeowner.
It is the small sights that add up in a po-
tential buyers mind, so when you are think-
ing of selling your home, put yourself in the
buyers shoes. Think about what will draw
them in for a closer look and what will leave
them thinking about how quickly they
would like to turn it from just another house
on theblock to their very own home sweet
home.

The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 13A


Outboors


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Livestock Show and Sale will be this Feb-
;ruary,;18 22;and all the little piggies are being
washed, groomed and primped for their turn in
:the spotlight. Weighing in between 200 and 280 lbs,
these snorting masses of moving pork bellies will
be judged accordingly as their prideful owners
stand beside them, waiting for the ribbons to be
passed out.
Raised for show and sale, these porkers play
major roles at the livestock show for the 4-H and
FFA members who bring them. Parting can be
suet sorrow, but the rewards far outweigh the tears
by the time the medals come down.
Withthis years competitors already signed up
and ready to show, this could be the perfect time to
,join in and see if pig raising might be your idea of
hog heaven.
As any 4-H youth can tell, raising a pig at
home can be a rewarding family project. With so
many breeds and crossbreeds, each pig has their
own special characteristics.


Piggy Went
While breeding pigs can be tricky and han-
dling boars can be dangerous, it is best to get a gen-
eral idea of their behaviors, personalities and abil-
ities before getting started. When deciding to buy
a pig to raise, a gilt, a young female pig that has not
had a litter, or a barrow, a castrated male, are the
best to start with. This will give you a good idea of
what to expect if you decide to breed pigs in the fu-
ture.
Next, think about shelter. Pigs need shelter
against the elements, both warm and cold. They
require bedding to snuggle into when it gets cold
and their snouts get sunburned in the heat, so
keep in mind their housing necessities before set-
ting out to bring Wilbur home,
Also, pigs are not stupid creatures, so if there
is a weak link in the fence, they will find and the
chase is on. If you don't enjoy running around the
backyard through the mud and the gack, make
sure the fence is hog-proof.
A growing swine needs clean, fresh water and
food. Lots and lots of food. If for some reason the
little piglet stops eating, it is as sign that you need
.. .~ ~ _~


To Market
to start asking questions. Pigs are born to eat. Any-
thing from grain pellets to mash, as their basic
food source to table scraps for treats, these pink
pork rolls will eat their weight up to 500 pounds if
one waits too long. Townsiend's Liv tck Market
can tell which feed will suit your pig the best.
Now it's time to show that swine. It is optimal
to take the pig to market between 200'and 250 lbs. I
Anything more than that and the pig starts to lose
its value, not to mention that at 500 lbs., it is no -
longer a friendly little pet.
Though it might be hard at first to say goodbye
to 'Arnold," just remember he won't be quite so
loveable when he's grown to the size to sit on a car
or squash the kiddos. Load him up and haul him
down tothe annual Livestock Show and Sale. Start
again, ready for the next show
Pig raising can be not only be educational and
rewarding, but many are finding that ivest(ck
grown in small-scale fashion can be a fun way to
bring in extra bacon.
