Vision 2020: "We Can't Keep Losing Our Best"


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
"Everybody knows each oth-
er. That's comforting growing
-up," Anita Domore, recent hon-
ors graduate from Madison
County High School, explains,
"but I need to do more. I cher-
ish and believe what my grand-
mother taught me about pre-
serving the important things
she knew growing up, but those
things aren't available either.
It's like we're caught between
two worlds."
Domore's professional
hopes are lofty "I've always
wanted to be a lawyer like my


grandfather who moved back
here after he retired. It's going
to be tough to be a lawyer here.
There's hardly the demand.
And I definitely don't know how
to grow our area," she added.
So like so many before her,
Domore will likely leave her
home in Madison. And if she is
like the others, she won't be
back anytime soon.
The challenge of keeping
some of the best at home was
one among the central issues
discussed during the recent Vi-
sion 2020 public forum. Madi-
son County is struggling with a
growing small town evolution


known as "brain drain," which
is the loss of quality young peo-
ple fleeing for better jobs and
excitement elsewhere. In small
towns where there are a limited
number of good jobs that are al-
ready occupied by people hold-
ing on to them like a life pre-
server, its becoming more like a
brain hemorrhage.
There are double the people
from 55 to 64 years old living in
rural communities than there
are people between the ages of
18 and 24. Whereas nationwide,
it's just the opposite. In fact the
18-24 group average well less
than ten percent of small town


populations. And the trend is
typically getting worse. Nearly
80 percent of these small com-
munities have fewer residents
between 18 and 24 in 2000 than
they did in 1990.
According to feedback
among local officials and resi-
dents attending the Vision 2020
forum, many think it will take
even more than just better pay-
ing jobs to change the trend.
"Convincing young adults to
stay may require changes in
core small town objectives," one
table's discussion noted.
A noted sociologist, Curtis
Stofferahn, who specializes in


measuring these trends said,
"We need to encourage people
to think about what they can do
differently that hasn't been
done before."
The biggest growth in Madi-
son County continues to be in
the 55-plus crowd, both from the
natural aging of the population
and from the residential trans-
plants. Economically, current
residents rarely oppose the mi-
gration of the retired and semi-
retired because it initially pro-
duces a little bump of economic
stimulus as these transplants
buy land and put a little money

NWTF Madison Chapter President
Wally Davis presents a plaque to Officer
Clay Huff commemorating his selection

Excessive Speeding

Causes Rollover On

Old Blue Springs Road
According to the Florida Highway
Patrol report dated March 1 at 10:15
p.m., Renee J. Gilbert of Harwinton,
Conn. was driving on Old Blue Springs
Road at a high rate of speed when she
lost control of her vehicle.
First spinning, then careening off
the road, Gilbert drove her 2008
Chevrolet over a shrub and then over-
turned, rolling over once before com-
ing to rest. Fortunately, Gilbert sus-
tained only minor injuries.
Madison County Sheriff Sgt. David
Harper assisted at the scene, as did Lee

$3,000 in cash and a bag of marijuana were seized from a Miami resident during
a felony arrest following a traffic stop on 1-10.


$3,000 DRUG BUST


On Thursday, February 22, at 11:18
p.m., Cpl. Michael D. Maurice with the
Madison County Sheriff's K-9 Unit con-
ducted a traffic stop on a vehicle at the
256 mile marker on 1-10 east bound.
When Maurice made contact with
the occupants, he detected a strong odor.
of burnt and green marijuana coming
from the vehicle.
Maurice got the driver, Alan Lemu-
ra, 19, of Miami, out of the vehicle to
conduct his enforcement action. While
talking with Lemura, he admitted that
he and the other two occupants had
smoked marijuana before they departed
Tallahassee.
Maurice completed his enforcement
action on Lemura and then made con-
tact with one of the passengers,
Christopher Milan, 19, also of Miami.
Milan also admitted to smoking mari-
juana before departing Tallahassee but
stated that there was no more marijua-
na in the vehicle.
Maurice then made contact with the
third passenger, Robert Goette, 20, of


Miami, who also admitted to smoking
marijuana. However, he too stated that
there was no more marijuana in the ve-
hicle.
Maurice conducted a probable cause
search of the vehicle, during which he'
observed a small slit in the carpet di-
rectly behind the drivers seat. He
checked around the immediate vicinity
of the slit, locating nothing initially, but
did notice a significant bulge in the car-
pet several inches from the slit. Dig-
ging farther, Maurice located a bag con-
taining a large amount of marijuana.
Before concluding the search, al-
most $3,000 dollars in U.S. currency was
also confiscated. The money was in sev-
eral bundles of $20 bills consistent with
the sale and purchase of illegal drugs.
The three subjects were arrested and
charged with felony possession of mari-
juana and the cash was seized for forfei-
ture.
Maurice was assisted at the scene
by Sgt. Randy Jansch and Deputy Jim-
my Fletcher.


Madison DJJ Launches New Name With New Vision


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Over a decade ago
with the reorganization
of juvenile justice opera-
tions, Florida statutes re-
quired the formation of
county juvenile justice
councils.
It was intended that
the council be comprised
of stakeholders through-
out the juvenile commu-
nity, including the De-
partment of Juvenile Jus-
tice, local law enforce-
ment, school administra-
tion, as well as key sup-
porting partnerships like

Madison County

Welcomes Heather

Johnson As 4-H Agent

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
If the best way to get to know a
new job is simply to jump right into
the deep
end of the
pool, then
Heather
Johnson,
the new
Madison
County 4-H
Agent, got
familiar
fast. Liter-
ally within
days of her
starting as
the new 4-
H Agent,
perhaps Heather Johnson
Johnson's .
most notable annual assignment was
already at hand, that being the 4-H
Livestock Show. From every indica-
tion and feedback, this crucial assign-
ment was handled quite well and is
one of the many, many accomplish-
ments Johnson will provide as leader
of the 4-H.
Johnson grew up in Jefferson
County and joined 4-H as a youngster,
benefiting greatly from those experi-
ences. In one of those experiences, she
participated in the Tropicana Speech
Contest and was successful all the way
to the state level. Johnson also spent
many years working at Camp Cherry
Lake; first as a camper, then as a coun-
selor, and later as part of the adult
staff.
Johnson received a BA in Elemen-
tary Education and Early Childhood
Education from Thomas University in
Thomasville, GA., later working as a
teacher prior to joining 4-H.

Why So Many

Inconsiderate People?
We live just north of Lee Town Hall on C.R. 255. For
many months now two peacocks have roamed our neigh-
borhood. They were inseparable and visited us and our
neighbors north of us on a daily basis. We put out food
and water for them as many of our near neighbors did.
We all enjoyed these beautiful creatures God has made
for us. But-people in a hurry to get somewhere didn't
bother to slow down and let them finish crossing the
road and now one's dead. Take just a second to avoid
killing the natural wildlife in our area.

God's Grace And God's Face
I realize that I've stayed away from certain things
many times, only by the grace of God. The blessings of
my life, especially my salvation, are from the generous
grace of Jesus Christ.
As I lie here in a hospital bed, writing this column, I
realize I owe my life to Jesus Christ and to the skillful
surgical team at TMH (Tallahassee Memorial Hospital).
The comfort I feel here, I owe to God's grace and the
work of the nursing team here at TMH.
When I thinkof all the major trouble I could have
gotten into over the many years drugs, alcohol, etc. -
I realize I owe that to God's face. Everyone is created in
the image of God. I know that as a Christian, I should set
a shining example and not disappoint anyone. The look
of disappointment on faces that I know are God's face
- keep me from doing these things.
I have stumbled more times than I can count, but I
have not fallen, thanks to God's grace and God's face.

in the bank. But obviously, unless these newcomers
bring a business with them, it does little to keep our kids
in Madison.
As mentioned earlier, there is a stated and restated
priority among planners to create jobs that are suffi-
ciently well paying to keep graduates in the community.
"Being able to travel, afford dance lessons, get some
cool new gadgets and have enough left over to help oth-
ers and give at church seems like an impossible dream.
I don't see it trickling down any time soon," Domore
added.
"But suppose I was lucky enough to find a good job
or start a business and have a family, I still don't want
my kids to go through the grief of seeing things on TV
or the Internet that they can never afford to do. And I'm
not talking about the bad stuff. At least there has to be
something interesting and fun to do." she went on to say.
One local grandfather who is sixth generation Madi-
son, Ben Herferevr, had an interesting angle on, why
Madison born kids will return to Madison if they do
leave.
"Either they'll run out of money and come home to
grandpa, or they'll get divorced and come home to
grandpa. Seems to be a common thing nowadays, kids
not being able to make it."
As far as the lack of new business in the communi-
ty, Herferevr had an opinion as well, "I'm okay on mon-
ey. The bankers and government people can worry
about all that other stuff. Besides, sometimes when the
businesses fail, we can pick up the property cheap and
sell it to the next newcomer who thinks they can make a
go of it. That way at least property owners can make a
few bucks for the trouble and the town remains the
same."
In the end, planners are making it a priority to in-
clude and respect the wishes of grandparents and ex-
ceptional students alike. These priorities will then be
added to others, ultimately becoming the marching pa-
pers for Vision 2020.
Anita Domore (A-nit-a Do-More, a.k.a. "I need to do
more") and Ben Herferevr (Ben Her-fer-evr, a.k.a. "Been
here forever") are fictional representations, serving to
illustrate the two ends planners are determined to tie to-
gether over the next decade. Again, the Vision 2020 fo-
rum is designed to facilitate that discussion and intro-
duce the framework for subsequent solutions.

ceives the thanks and recognition he so richly deserves."
Huff is an Officer with the Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission. He has served the area ex-
ceptionally well, exhibiting particular support for youth.
Davis also noted that Huff is very active in the NWTF's
JAKES (Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics and
Sportsmanship) program.
"Clay takes great pride in teaching youth hunters the
importance of ethics, doing the right thing and taking
responsibility for their actions," Davis stated.
Huff was proud to receive the award and gracious
about the acknowledgement. "If we can teach our youth
the importance of ethical hunting practices, then we can
preserve our wild turkey hunting heritage for future
generations," Huff stated.
Huff resides in Lee with his wife Jessica.

that provides several juve-
nile programs within its
portfolio of services. De-
pending on need, these
programs provide a com-
posite of assessment, case
management and commu-
nity-based services for
young men and women
with delinquency, truancy,
and substance abuse is-
sues.
The group meeting of
February 12 was presided
by Chair Rick Davis, Madi-
son Chief of Police, who,
with assistance from Phyl-
lis Law, facilitated a
roundtable discussion for
the construction of new
vision and mission state-
ments to go along with the
new name, "Madison
County Youth Council."
Among other functions,
the name and new declara-
tions are intended to estab-
lish increased community
awareness and involve-
ment, as well as a more
positive affirmation of the
council's design and range
of services.
There was extensive
discussion regarding vari-
ous funding efforts and a
brief progress report re-
garding a beta project at
Madison County Central
School designed to im-
prove students with excep-
tional needs. In addition,
planning for the Youth
Summit scheduled for
March 4, and Juvenile Jus-
tice Week, slated for
March 24-28, was conduct-
ed. Included among con-
tributions to the latter
event is a proclamation
that will be delivered to
the county commission,
town councils and school
board prior to the event.
In the end, it was evi-
dent that all in attendance

shared a clear vision for
supporting the youth of
Madison County. So even
as slogans are published
and sub-committees are
formed, the Madison
County Youth Council is
already implementing in-
dividual and collaborative
programs from among its
membership.

March Madness
We have leapt out of February and I see March is
coming in like a lion. But, I'm not sure if it will go out
like a lamb. I'm definitely ready for spring this year. We
moved to Florida to get away from the cold, but these
past few months here have been cold ones. My heat was
definitely running more often. March used to only have
a few special events, but this year there are fewer free
days, as this family has been growing, and so is my gift
list.
Birthdays within my family include my husband
Kevin's brother, Brian, on the 10th, Kevin's on the 16th.
St. Patrick's day and my sister Shelley's anniversary on
the 17th and my niece Amanda's birthday on the 22nd .
Then Easter comes early this year on the 23rd. Kevin's
sister, Anna, celebrates a birthday on the 27th. My
daughter in law, Jennifer's birthday on the 28th, fol-
lowed by her daughter Kelsea, my newest grandbaby,
who will be one years old on the 30th. Kevin's other
brother Leonard and his wife Janice, of Lee will be cele-
brating their anniversary on the 31st.
March will definitely be a busy month. The good
thing is that we are planning a family gathering the last
weekend of the month to cover most of them in one cel-
ebration party So, we are certainly hoping for warmer,
drier weather for this event.
Then, we will be ready for those needed April show-
ers, as April should be a bit quieter around here. Maybe,
I'll get a chance to relax and enjoy some of my spring-
time birds and get some gardening done.
Wonderful Happy Birthday wishes go out to Brian,
Kevin, Amanda, Anna, Jennifer, and Kelsea this month,
as well as Happy Anniversary wishes to Shelley and
Scott, and Leonard and Janice.
Don't forget, if you want to get news to me birth-
days, anniversaries, a new baby or any other news to
share that you would like to see in print, or complaints,
or comments, please feel free to call me anytime at (850)

sage.

of school, building on my deep love of youth develop-
ment, which I know I will be able to continue to do with
all the programs here," Johnson noted.
Johnson's husband, James, is an instructor at Madi-
son County High School and even their relationship is
grounded in 4-H, having met him at the Cherry Lake
Camp.
"We were both in middle school at the time and we
became friends, later started dating, and now we have
been happily married for three and a half years. But we
might never have met if I hadn't joined 4-H and had that
chance to go to camp," Johnson explained.
As Johnson reflected on her life and professional ac-
complishments, she literally sees 4-H touching her life
everywhere, so the step to make it her professional focus
was a natural and obvious calling.
"When I look back on my life, I see that 4-H has
helped to mold me into the person I am today. Every-
thing that I learned in the camps, clubs, and meetings, I
used to become successful. I know what 4-H can help a
person do and I want to be that same influence in the
lives of those I encounter here," Johnson went on to say,
"that is, after all, what 4-H is really all about."

Good
morning,
everyone!
Ase write
this, the t .
weather T
channel is
reporting. .. :
terrible
weather in
most of our country with tornado dam-
age in some parts and expected from
Texas to the East Coast, as well as driving
rains and snowstorms. In St. Louis, visi-
bility for motorists is about eight feet,
(but traffic looked heavy on the inter-
states!) and everyone from Florida to
Maine was being warned of dire conse-
quences as Old Man Winter was on a -
hopefully, final rampage from coast to
coast and destroying our lovely early
Spring. The rampage is supposed to be
short-lived and Spring, like the Phoenix,
will arise from the ashes in just a day or
two! So far, we've received one rather
heavy but short and badly needed rain-
fall. However, it's been raining some-
where for the Withlacoochee and Blue
Springs is flooded.
We had lots of company last week-
end. Three of the girls, two grandsons
with one friend and one great-grandson,
came up to help move furniture and do
lots of pruning. Vicki, Sharon and Mona
painted the family room walls and Vicki
hired Jerry Bass to install new carpet.
Son Pat then came and got two of the
outside walls painted just ahead of the
rain. The carpet is hunter green and
beautiful but there are lots of things yet
to be done which will have to wait until
Vicki and Sharon can get back, as both
are moving to different residences this
weekend. As for us, we just sit around
and watch others work while we're being
waited on! The life of Riley! Oh, well, we
were no slouch for most of the past 88
years.
We hear that many in Madison Coun-
ty have had the misfortune to be felled by
flu or pneumonia, even those who had
taken their shots. Our town hall crew suf-

Balancing physical activity and a
healthful diet is your best recipe for
managing weight and promoting overall
health and fitness.
Think nutrient-rich rather than
"good" or '.'bad" foods. The majority of
your food choices should be packed with
vitamins, minerals, fiber and other nu-
trients and lower in calories.
Look at the big picture: No single
food or meal makes or breaks a healthful
diet. Your total diet is the most impor-

though she never missed work, had a bad

whispering into it!) and yesterday Janice
was hoarse we'll keep our fingers
crossed for her.
During the last high winds which
came through here, we had the misfor-
tune to have a limb fall on our car and
jam itself under the front hood now it's
bent, plus something must have hit the
rear window which is now completely
shattered. For a couple of days we could-
n't find anyone to remove the limb. Poor
old Prancer!
We don't want to end this without
complimenting Sheree Miller on her last
week's column we really enjoyed the
way she strung all those country music
songs together. One night a few weeks be-
fore we awoke in the middle of the night
and a few words from an old, old song
started running through our minds for
no apparent reason and, as we lay there,
that song which we hadn't thought of in
years, formed completely and for days af-
terward, it never left. That song was 'Red-
wing' you know, "There once was an In-
dian Maid" etc. Even though we couldn't
get back to sleep for hours that night, we
enjoyed remembering the entire song.
As we finish writing this, it is four
p.m., very cloudy gray and windy and
showing every sign of more impending
rain, (we just heard thunder) and most of
our area all the way through Jack-

nel, is still in the tornado danger area.

SKiwanis Hear Accomplishments


And Vision 2020 Summary


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Following a delicious
lunch and an interesting
report by Past President
Jim Holben regarding the
mostly unknown history
and actual legislation per-
taining to the abolishment
of slavery in America,
President Frances Ginn
made several announce-
ments and then turned the
Madison Kiwanis Club
meeting of February 21
over to Madison County
Coordinator Allen Cherry.
Ginn's announcements in-
cluded a reminder that
district training is sched-
uled for March 1, Pat
Cantey is returning to the
board and the Minister
Appreciation luncheon is
set for March 17.
Cherry, along with
Sherilyn Pickles and
County Planner Jeanne
Bass, gave a detailed pre-
sentation regarding the
Vision 2020 public forum


JEANNE BASS
that kicked off February
26. Cherry opened by
praising Pickles and Bass
on their commitment and
especially their achieve-
ments regarding the vi-
sioning process. He then
outlined several key ac-
complishments that have
occurred since the last vi-


sioning ten years ago.
A second focal point of
the discussion was a re-
view of a variety of online
tools that have been
launched recently. Serv-
ing as Webmaster and uti-
lizing a few timely grants
targeting website develop-
ment, Pickles has brought
numerous improvements
to the county site located a
www. madisoncoun-
tyfl.com.
A few of these addi-
tions were showcased in a
computerized overhead
demonstration involving
the Planning and Zoning
section of the site. In co-
ordination with Bass, this
section of the site was de-
veloped with a variety of
menus and screens that al-
low detailed property re-
view, including easy links
to legal and tax informa-
tion, as well as zoning and
site details.
Building in these fea-
tures while keeping the
site user-friendly can be


challenging, but here too,
Pickles evidently hit a
home run. The efforts, of
course, are all directed to-
ward a central goal; facili-
tate the business develop-
ment of the county.
The Madison Kiwanis
Club has a rich heritage
for supporting and partici-
pating in county leader-
ship. This outreach cer-
tainly extends to the youth
of Madison County as
well. Through programs
like Take Stock In Chil-
dren, an educational
scholarship program, the
Kiwanis Club provides on-
going financial support
while many members
serve individually as men-
tors. Kiwanis support for
adult services is no less
noteworthy, not to men-
tion all the practical and
community benefits expe-
rienced from membership.

Excel's New House


Quickly Becoming Home


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On January 10, the Madison County
Excel School moved into its new build-
ing adjacent to the football field on the
high school campus.
"The move has been nothing but
positive,"
Principal
Maceo How-
ell, noted.
"We have
great teach-
ers and a lot
to give the
64 students
who cur-
rently at-
tend Excel.
This facility

Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By great facul-
Michael Curtis, February 29, 2008 ty, as well as
Principal Maceo Howell the well-
and the staff of the Excel equipped
School are committed to classrooms
ensuring a great educa- and re-
tional experience, sources,


combine to give our students a quality
education".
As a writer and resident, this re-
porter has discussed the status of vari-
ous school affairs on dozens of occa-
sions. Unfortunately, during a few of
those incidents, Excel was unfairly de-
scribed as a place problems go to live
out their school time. But those hold-
ing onto those opinions have apparent-
ly not visited the school recently.
No one, including the students at
Excel, deny that there were issues that
caused the students to be referred to
Excel in the first place, but don't try to
tell Howell or his fine staff that this
means these students aren't going to
graduate and have opportunities be-
yond Excel.
That goes double for Excel's
Teacher of the Year Joyce Taylor, who
eloquently noted, "each child deserves
a chance," during her comments at the
Teacher of the Year Banquet held earli-
er this month.

Among the curriculum and facility
enhancements that have contributed to
the stellar reputation now enjoyed by
North Florida Community College, the
science department certainly ranks high
among them, especially in light of the
new multi-million dollar building and
labs.
Within the science department, Dr.
Tony DeLia serves as the head of astron-
omy. "'Astronomy classes average about
two and one half hours of inside lecture
and one hour of outdoor activity or ob-
servations each week. Outdoor activi-
ties include daytime astronomy such as
solar and lunar observations, as well as
things like building scale size models of
the solar system across the whole cam-
pus. We've even searched for mete-
orites," DeLia said.
"We have built a small planetarium
for illustration and usually showcase
one or two special astronomy events
each semester (like this semester's lunar
eclipse for example). Future events in-
clude partial eclipses, Venus's transit of
the Sun, meteor showers and frequent
unexpected displays like comets, aster-
oids, solar storms and other ephemera,"


DeLia added.
Astronomy can be taken for credit or
just audited so you don't have to be a de-
gree-seeking student to take our class.
DeLia also offers enrichment courses for
the community such as '"Astrophotogra-
phy," "Radio Astronomy" and "Building
Your Own Telescope."
"We've also discussed offering a sec-
ond semester of astronomy at the re-
quest of many of our current students.
Astrobiology is another possibility we
are looking at," DeLia went on to say.
Perhaps the greatest showcase, how-
ever, is the exciting developments that
are coming as DeLia brings the 25-inch
Obsession telescope online. The Obses-
sion is the largest telescope in the state
that is regularly available and dedicated
to public use and community outreach.
In addition, the department has a re-
motely controlled robotic telescope that
affords a great opportunity for students
and local citizens to take some incredi-
ble images of the deep sky
'Astronomy allows everybody, even
high school and middle school students,
an opportunity to take part in science
and make new discoveries," Delia noted.

The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 7A


Catch The Spirit


by Lilla Howerton
During this time of Lent,
we have the privilege of expe-
riencing a personal resurrec-
tion. Jesus gave us the blue-
print when He spoke through
John 10:10, "I came that they
may have life and have it abun-
dantly" How did He accom-
plish this? The answer is found
in Luke 23:34, "Father, forgive
them, for they know not what
they do." This verse is one of
the most liberating in the
Bible. All we need to do is call
upon Jesus for forgiveness and
forgive others, then just sur-
render to the Holy Spirit for
guidance and direction. "So
give yourselves humbly to God.
Resist the devil and he will flee
from you. And when you draw
close to God, God will draw
close to you." James 4:7-8.
A friend shared "The U in
Jesus" and I invite you to en-
grave it in your heart. "Before
U were thought of or time had
begun, God stuck U in the
name of His Son. And each
time U pray you'll see it's true,
you can't spell Jesus and not in-
clude U.You're a pretty big part
of His wonderful name, for U,
He was born; that's why He
came. And His great love for U
is the reason He died. It even
takes U to spell crucified. Isn't
it thrilling and splendidly


grand He rose from the dead,
with U in His plan?"
Just as Madison is bloom-
ing with flowers and trees,
Madison First United
Medthodist Church is blossom-
ing with activities for you to en-
joy on your walk with Christ.
Please join the Walk for Life
2008 on Sat. 3/8 at 8:30 a.m. at
the Madison County Court
House. Your support and dona-
tions will continue to help
serve the Women's Pregnancy
Center which assisted over
1,300 clients in 2007.
Also, on Sat. 3/8 from 7:30
a.m. until 3 p.m. you are invited
to sign up at the Gazebo in the
Four Freedoms Park to read
the Bible. The Bible will be
read continuously for 84 hours
from 4/21 through 4/25.

en others, who are leaving to-
day for a mission trip to Haiti

al Holy Week services to be

We invite all couples to a
"Weekend to Remember" 4/4 -

ference offers couples an op-
portunity to get away recon-
nect and experience a life
changing weekend together.
Couples discover purpose,
experience encouragement
and find hope for their rela-
tionships. Even the best mar-
riage needs nourishment to
keep it growing.

thusiasm for serving and glori-
fying our Lord Jesus, and we

the Spirit.

Wednesday February
27, Madison First's M-
Pact youth group, along
with more than 100 other
youth from multiple
churches of multiple de-
nominations, gathered
together at the United
Methodist Church of
Madison. Led by Keith
Deltano, the youth
learned about absti-
nence, sexual purity, and
handling peer pressure.
May God bless Keith's
ministry and bless it
bountifully.
Sunday morning at
MFB was a tremendous
blessing. The WOM
group performed an en-
gaging skit pertaining to
the missionary Annie
Armstrong. A love offer-
ing will be taken up
every Sunday during the
month of March. The
blessings of the North
American Missions
Board is so abundant,
may God be with them
and all of the missionar-
ies throughout the
world. The choir then
performed "When I Sur-
vey the Wondrous
Cross." They did an out-
standing job. Pastor Fer-
rell then preached from
Matthew 4:1-11. His les-
son was about Jesus be-
ing tempted by Satan
and the ups and downs of
our lives. "Sin will make
you do more than you
want to do, stay longer
than you want to stay,
and pay more then you
want to pay," he noted.


The gifts of the Lord
will bless you when you
aren't prepared and
when you are but "when
you set to satisfy your-
self you forsake all the
provisions of God."
Sunday night there
were no evening ser-
vices. Madison had the
honor of witnessing the
talents and gifts of Paul
Daily, "The Horse Whis-
perer." The fun began
with churches around
the community opening
booths. Booths featured
everything from cup-
cakes, hamburgers, and
funnel cakes, to mock
bull riding, roping
lessons, and several
handmade gifts. At 6 o'-
clock Paul and his part-
ner Brian were intro-
duced to two untrained
colts. While attempting
to break these horses
both men shared their
testimonies and related


it to how they
formed this time
suming task. In a
hour and a half


per-
con-
mere
both


horses were able to be
ridden and petted as
though they had been
trained for years. This
miracle was then fol-
lowed by everyone join-
ing in the ring to pray. It
was a blessing and a de-
light. God be with Paul's
ministry and protect
him as he continues his
work.
Madison County has
so many ill and hospital-
ized. Please remember
to pray for them and
their healing. May God
be with our servicemen
and women, and every-
one around the commu-
nity and around the
world! Always bear in
mind that no matter
how far down you have
fallen; God can always
lift you up.

Hard to believe, but it's already vorite
March. March can mean a lot of choke E
things, depending on where you live. of peop
Around here, March brings a mixture to eat, b
of days that alternate between the own at

spring. It also brings longer days to showers

FWC Officer Receives Sleca Award; Law

Enforcement Director Elected President


The State Law Enforcement Chiefs' Association
(SLECA) presented its 2007 Officer of the Year award to
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) Officer Michael "Brad" Stanley, a co-winner
with an FDLE officer. This is the second time in two
years an FWC officer has been awarded this top honor. .
In addition, Col. Julie Jones, director of the FWC's
Division of Law Enforcement, was sworn in as the or-
ganization's new president, succeeding Eric Miller,
Deputy Chief Financial Officer, Department of Finan-
cial Services.
"This just goes to show you what an exemplary
group of people we have working for the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission,", said Com-
mission Chairman Rodney Barreto. "They are among
the best."
Established in 1984, SLECA is a not-for-profit orga-
nization that provides training, educational opportuni-
ties and support services to Florida's state law en-
forcement agencies, which enhances law enforcement
in the state.
Stanley began his career with the FWC in 2002.

During the past year, he made more than 2,600 contacts
and conducted 571 vessel inspections, documenting
more than 480 violations. In one' notable incident,
Stanley discovered a pedestrian lying in a roadside
ditch in Fellsmere in Indian River County The man
could not speak English, but Stanley determined the
victim had been hit by a vehicle that fled the scene.
The victim described the vehicle and driver to Stanley,
who later spotted the vehicle and arrested the driver
for leaving the scene of an accident and DUI.
Stanley is also an accomplished public speaker
and is well respected for his efforts not only to enforce
the law but to educate the public about Florida's re-
sources.
Jones has been director of the FWC's Division of
Law Enforcement for six years. She began her career
as a biologist with the Florida Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission, FWC's predecessor, in 1980. Wanti-
ng a more active role in natural resource conserva-
tion, she traded in her microscope for a firearm in
1983. Jones assumed the position of president of SLE-
CA during a swearing-in ceremony on Wednesday
"I am pleased to have been chosen to lead an out-
standing organization like SLECA," Jones said. "This
organization is the foundation for the interaction of
law enforcement agencies and is the forum to imple-
ment best management practices and create efficien-
cies in government."

What You Need To Know About Your Mortgage


The Olden Days
In the "olden" days,
when someone wanted a
home loan they walked
downtown to the neigh-
borhood bank or savings
& loan. If the bank had
extra funds laying
around and considered
you a good credit risk,
they would lend you the
money from their own
funds.
It doesn't generally
work like that anymore.
Most of the money for
home loans comes from
three major institutions:
Fannie Mae (FNMA -
Federal National Mort-
gage Association)
Freddie Mac
(FHLMC Federal Home
Loan Mortgage Corpora-
tion)
Ginnie Mae (GNMA -
Government National
Mortgage Association)
This is how it works
now:
You talk to practically
any lender and apply for
a loan. They do all the
processing and verifica-
tions and finally, you own
the house and now you
have a home loan and you
make mortgage pay-
ments. You might be mak-
ing payments to the com-
pany who originated your


loan, or your loan might
have been transferred to
another institution.
The company you
make your payments to
very rarely owns your
loan. They are the "ser-
vicer" of your mortgage.
They are called the ser-
vicer because they are
simply "servicing" your
loan for the institution
that does own it.
You see, what hap-'
pens behind the scenes is
that your loan got pack-
aged into a "pool" with a
lot of other loans and
sold off to one of the
three institutions listed
above. The service of
your loan gets a monthly
fee from the investor for
processing payments and
taking care of your loan.
This fee is usually only
3/8ths of a percent or so,
but the amount adds up.
There are companies that
service over billions of
dollars of home loans.
Three-eighths of a per-
cent on a billion dollars
is a tidy income.
In fact, mortgage ser-
vicing is where lenders
make the real money. The
entire system of originat-
ing mortgages, including
wholesale lenders, mort-
gage brokers and mort-


gage bankers is designed
so that services get
loans into their portfolio -
- hopefully at a "break
even" level -- but often at
a loss. Mortgage servic-
ing is where they make
their profit.
Once your loan has
been packaged into a pool
and sold to Fannie Mae,
Freddie Mac, or Ginnie
Mae, the lender gets addi-
tional funds so they can
make more loans (to ser-
vice in their portfolio)
and sell to those institu-
tions, so they can get
more money, and so on...
This is the cycle that
allows institutions to
lend you money
Mortgage Backed
Securities
Once Freddie Mac,
Ginnie Mae, and Fannie
purchase the pools, they
break them down into
smaller ownership
parcels. These are called
"mortgage backed securi-
ties." Each security rep-
resents a small owner-
ship interest, not in your
specific loan, but in the
pool of which your loan
is only one part. The risk
is therefore diversified
and it is a very safe in-
vestment.
The mortgage backed


securities are sold on
Wall Street to institu-
tions or individuals look-
ing for a safe investment,
but one that earns a
higher interest rate than
treasury bonds. You may
even own some as part of
your retirement fund or
investment portfolio.
Perhaps you have heard
of Ginnie Mae bonds?
Those are securities
backed by the mortgages
on FHA and VA loans.
By selling the bonds,
Ginnie Mae, Freddie
Mac, and Fannie Mae ob-
tain new funds to buy
new pools so lenders can
get more money to lend
to new borrowers.
And that is how the


cycle works.
So when you make
your payment, the ser-
vicer gets to keep their
tiny part, and the major-
ity is passed on to the in-
vestor. Then the investor
passes on the majority of
it to the individual or in-
stitutional investor in
the mortgage backed se-
curities.
From time to time
your loan may be trans-
ferred from the company
where you have been
making your payment to
another company. They
aren't selling your loan
again, just the right to
service your loan.
There are excep-
tions.


Loans above $333,700
do not conform to Fan-
nie Mae and Freddie
Mac guidelines, which is
why they are called
"non-conforming" loans,
or "jumbo" loans. These
loans are packaged into
different pools and sold
to different investors,
not Freddie Mac or Fan-
nie Mae. Then they are
securitized and for the
most part, sold as mort-
gage backed securities
as well.
This buying and sell-
ing of mortgages and
mortgage backed securi-
ties is called "mortgage
banking," and it is the
backbone of the mort-
gage business.
