Greene Publishing, Inc.
A Madison man was shot and
wounded on his back left side, from his
buttocks to be-

der blade, on
Tuesday,
March 11.
Accord-
ing to a Madi-
son County
Sheriff's Of-
fice report,
Deputy Jason
Whitfield was
dispatched to
Johnson Trail-
Aron Clark turned er Park on
himself in for shooting Georgia Street
Lrnya Hd n t, in reference to
Loronya Haynes on a omanbei
Tuesday, March 11. a man being
shot. While en
route, Whitfield was advised by dis-
patched that the suspect, Aron Clark,
had left the scene, driving a blue Subur-
ban with tinted windows.
After checking for the vehicle and
not finding it, Whifield went to the
crime scene, where Madison Police De-
partment Sgt. Chris Cooks had the wit-
nesses writing statements.
Whitfield spoke with several wit-
nesses himself.
One of the witnesses said that she
was sitting on a couch inside a resi-
dence with the victim, Loronya Haynes,
when they heard a vehicle pull up. She
said that the two of them saw a black
male sitting in the vehicle, putting a
gun together.
She and Haynes walked outside and
Haynes got into an argument with
Clark, the driver of the vehicle.
Clark told the woman she needed to
step back inside the residence and she
did. She said she heard a gunshot and
Haynes stepped inside, told her he had
been shot and fell to the floor
Whitfield received a call from dis-
patch that Clark was at the jail to turn
himself in for the shooting.
Clark said that Haynes and a friend
walked around the residence and
walked up to him when he honked the
horn. Clark said.that they began talk-
ing "junk" to him. He said that he put
his .410 shotgun together and placed it
in the passenger seat and exited the ve-
hicle.
Clark said as he exited the truck,
they came at him, so he loaded the
firearm. He said that Haynes was still
talking trash, so when he came at him
again, he pointed the firearm at Haynes
and he ran in the residence. While
Haynes was turning the corner into the
residence, Clark shot Haynes.
Haynes was flown by medical heli-
copter to Tallahassee Memorial Hospi-
tal, where he remains after being treat-
ed for the gunshot wound.
Clark was placed under arrested
and booked at the Madison County Jail.

Madison is Fortunate To Have Leaders Who Value Its Heritage


Dear Editor:
Yesterday our group of twenty-four people from Oak
Hammock at the U. of F paid a visit to your beautiful
city. Myra Valentine greatly assisted in the pre-planning
of this tour to make our day visit such a success. We
would like to share with your general public some of the
activities of our day so that they will be aware of the im-
portance of local leaders, such as Myra, on the image of
your home town.
Upon our arrival at the O'Toole Herb Garden, Myra
was right there with a big smile greeting us one by one
as we departed our tour bus. She and Betty O'Toole led
our tour members around tle greenhouses and little
shops sharing horticulture and cultural information of
the Madison area.
As we left the herb garden, Myra boarded our bus
and continued to share interesting information about
each historic home and area.
A delicious luncheon was ready to be served upon
our arrival at the One Eleven Grill. Pam O'Toole and
her staff out did themselves with service and quality of
good southern food. Myra was a major player in the pre-
planning for this well organized luncheon. Our favorites
- fried green tomatoes and banana pudding!
Our group was amazed that even the local police
were right there assisting with the movement of our
large Oak Hammock bus. At each location on our city
tour they were there along with other city officials to
make us feel very welcomed.
Myra had organized volunteers at each location who
were well informed on the rich history of your city and
county Each of these volunteers made us feel so very
welcomed. Because of Myra Valentine's willingness to
assist with this coordination of volunteers and her sup-
port, many of our Oak Hammock members insist on a
return visit to your incredible city.
You are indeed fortunate to have such dedicated peo-
ple who truly care about your rich historical heritage.
Our wish for your community is that you will continue
to preserve what you have. So many cities have de-
stroyed one-by-one their older homes and buildings.
Once they are gone, the sprit of the city changes forev-
er, the original ambiance cannot be regained. By pro-
moting group tours, such as this one coordinated by the
leadership of volunteers, such as Myra Valentine, your
citizens will see the intrinsic, as well as the economic

I Told You So;

Global Warming Is A Hoax
We have all heard, or read, that the world's ice caps
are melting because of climate change, "1 degree Cel-
* sius the last 100 years" and the climate change, is our
fault. Why? Because we drive around in SUV's, here in
Madison, we call them Pickup Trucks. Oh, and we're
also using the wrong type of light bulbs, thus causing us
to use too much electricity, Etc. Well guess what, it is all,
bogus. Through the kindness of this Newspaper and Ms.
Emerald, an article I wrote months ago, stating that I
thought it was actually getting colder was printed.
According to the reports I read in December of 2007,
from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Ad-
ministration (NOAA) almost all the ice we lost, "due to
unusually warm weather" has come back. The NOAA
report showed that the ice cap which had shrunk nearly
5 million square miles in January 2007 to just 1.5 million
square miles in October, of 2007, are almost back to their
original levels.
Not only that, a report in the London Daily showed
that there's darn near a third more ice in Antarctica
than in the past several years. That, in my opinion is a
kick in the teeth to these Leftist Global Warming ac-
tivists. Ever wonder why they are pushing this stuff?
One word, "Money"
Also mentioned in the London Daily, was the photo
of the polar bears hanging on to a fast melting iceberg.
That picture was used as proof positive that we were
into Global Warming. This picture was also used by For-
mer Democrat VP Al Gore while pushing his book "In-
convenient Truth" well guess what, that picture was tak-
en in August, ya know what? Iceberg's always melt in
August and have for millions of years. As for the picture
of the cute little Polar Bear, also stuck on a small piece
oi' ice' picii&red over the internet, tho&lght youf ay
want to kMow, that picture was a fake also. That little po-
lar bear has never been, nor will he/she ever be on an
Iceberg, unless of course one was built at the Zoo in Ger-
many. His/her picture was superimposed on the Ice flow,
by some leftist whacko. f
The report went on to say, that our hemisphere has
had the coldest winter in years, and that snow covered
many areas with the heaviest snowfalls in decades. I
also read on line that States from Maine to the Great
Lakes to as far south as Missouri, have run out of salt to
rid the roads of snow, and this is only February "three
weeks ago when I wrote this." I have seen two feet of
snow, hit the State of Maine in the month of May, talk,
about a long winter.
Several places around the world such as Jerusalem,
Damascus, Amman, have had the heaviest snow falls in
memory. I received an e-mail from a W02 Helicopter pi-
lot stationed in Baghdad, telling me that they had re-
ceived a huge snow storm, and that most every one, in
Baghdad, had ever seen snow before.
Greece has had no snow the last several years, three
weekends ago, Shazam! Most of Greece is covered in
snow, and has been held in subzero temperatures. Ships,
transport busses, schools, were all shut down, as were
many of the islands off the coast of Greece. The report
mentioned many other countries one would not associ-
ate with cold and snow, such as Vietnam. As I wrote in
last years' "Letter to the Editor" "I'm not a scientist,
however, I'm aware as to what goes on around me. We
had Orange Groves, large Orange Groves in Orange
Park in the late fifties, not today. You may find a tree or
two in some ones yard but that's it, it's just too cold for
them to grow."
Oh my, what's a leftist Global Warming Activist to
do? "I got it," lets blame man for bringing all the cold
and snow to the world due to driving SUV's, using too
much electricity, too much coal, too much water, too
many people and let's save Africa from its self. That
should to do it for a decade or two, then they can go onto
something else, such as "The Sky Is Falling"
Going back to the light bulbs we are recommended
to use today, (caution), they have small amounts of mer-
cury in them. I read in the Monticello News a week or so
ago on how to dispose of them when they do burn out.
Another, word of caution. Follow those directions at
your own risk.
A little old lady living in Miami, went to the EPA of-
fice located in that city, asking them what to do with her
little burnt out light bulb. Having read that there was a
little mercury in the thing, and, as a concerned citizen,
she wanted to do the right thing. Typically, "Were From
The Government, Were Here To Protect You" and Two
Thousand dollars ($2,000) later, she finally got rid of her
little light bulb with a teeny bit of mercury in it. Need-
less to say, that little old lady no longer uses and will nev-
er use that (mercury infested) light bulb.


George Pouliotte


Waiting On God's Timing
And he said to him, "Every man at the beginning sets
out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk,
then the inferior You have kept the good wine until now!"
John 2:10
The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part Tom Petty
Wait. Delay. Hold-up. Pause. Stay.
Sometimes, you have to wait for the right time to get
the good stuff out of life. The story of Jesus' first mira-
cle is a good example.
Jesus and His disciples had been invited to a wed-
ding. After the wedding, every one was celebrating. Un-
fortunately, someone had not prepared well and the wine
ran out. Jesus' mother, Mary, came and asked Him to
help out.
Jesus was about 30 years old when this happened. It
is the first recorded miracle that He performed. He
turned the water into wine. Perhaps He had done other
miracles before but there is no record of it. Perhaps He
had not. He had to wait on God's timing.
God's timing sometimes plays havoc with our own
timing. We need our prayers answered now. Sometimes,
we do get an immediate answer and, sometimes, we have
to wait.
I am probably the most impatient person in the
world. I hate waiting for anything, but I realize that
some of the best things in my life have come as a result
of waiting.
The good things sometimes come with delays. Soon-
er or later, however, I know that the "good wine" will be
served.










Green The Color; Greene The Man

Iin honor of St. Patrick's Day on Monday, March 17, 1
would like to pay tribute to Mr. Tommy Greene. -persoial-
ly don't like green as a color, or wear green very often.
When I do wear green, there is one man in this county who
notices and appreciates it. That man is Mr. Tommy Greene,
former owner/publisher of the Madison County Carrier
and Enterprise-Recorder Newspapers, as well as other past
small town publications, which I have been delivering to
you for about 15 years, while working for Greene Publish-
ing, Inc.
Now, Mr. Greene is a man who has and still does wear
many hats in his life. He created and built Greene Publish-
ing from the ground up. He has made a mountain out of a
mole hill over the course of several years. He has held the
honor as Citizen of the Year in Madison County He has
been a logger, farmer, a businessman, a Mason, an artist,
writer and an author. He is a clown/jester, a Shriner, as well
as a husband of 46 years to Mary Ellen, and a father to Har-
vey, William and Emerald. He is the grandfather of 11
grandchildren, who respect him greatly, whom almost all
have names associated with the color green.
Some people see him as strange, others respect him.
Some know he has a big heart; he's brave, tough, strong and
funny, private, yet public. He can be your best friend or
worst enemy He is a man with ideas, visions, plans, and
dreams. Some are realistic, some seem farfetched, yet in his
mind nothing is "impossible." He has stricken that word
from his vocabulary along with three other words, "if,
"can't" and "but"; they are buried in the ground each with
their own tombstone in front of the Carrier office.
My son, Chris, whom Mr. Greene sponsored for Scolio-
sis surgery, at the Shriners Hospital in Tampa in 2001, (for
that we are forever grateful to him as he helped us through
a very difficult time), was employed by Mr. Greene a few
years back. Chris really respected him and enjoyed listen-
ing to endless stories and jokes that Mr. Greene shared with
him at that time.
Green is everything to Mr. Greene. The clothes, the
cars, the,Carrier building, his home, his camp, his children
and grandchildren's names, even his dog was named Sham-
rock. He often served green food, (eggs, grits, jell-o, cakes
etc.) to respected friends and employees, even Senators and
the like at his home, camp and office. He only uses green
stationary, pens, pencils, date books, and his office of
course is green. He has been recognized by Ripley 's Believe
It or Not, and interviewed for a story that ran in the Amer-
ican Profile Magazine a few years ago about his "green
life," and this month he is featured for his cookbook in the
Valdosta Scene magazine.
I was employed by Greene Publishing when he passed
the torch to his daughter, Emerald, who has the same sta-
mina, dedication and desire as he does. I believe she will
also go for and get what she wants in her lifetime. She's al-
ready on a roll by, recently purchasing the Monticello News
with her daughters who are waiting to run the business as
soon as they are able to.
Many of these things I have witnessed as a friend and
employee. Some of the blanks were filled in from reading
Mary Ellen's columns which she has written, or stories she
has shared with me over the years.
Tommy Greene has been and always will be apart of,
Madison County's history I respect his authority and be-
lieve in his way of dreaming it and building it. He deserves
a hug. I look up to him as a father figure, and consider him
a friend.
Some of you may say this paper is just another fish
wrapper, but to Mr. Tommy Greene, it is his life and legacy
It seems to me that he's been enjoying the ride, at least the
last 15 years of it that I have personally witnessed and his
ride hasn't stopped yet.
He is definitely a small town southern man, as I'm re-
minded in a song that goes, "He bowed his head to Jesus,
stood for Uncle Sam, he only loved one woman, was always
proud of what he had. His greatest contribution will be the
ones he leaves behind, raised on the ways and gentle kind-
ness of a Small Town Southern Man."

National Living Well Week
Raising kids, eating right, spending smart, living
well that's the theme of National Living Well Week,
March 9-15, 2008. Officially passed in 2005 by the U.S.
Senate, Living Well Week is sponsored by the National
Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sci-
ences. The purpose of the week is to help people become
aware of the educational programs and resources that
are available through the extension Service to improve
the quality of life.
Whether you are looking for information in nutri-
tion, food safety, money management, consumer rights
or child development, your local Extension office proba-
bly has the answer. The University Extension System
has long provided researched based information
through classes, fact sheets, websites and mass media.
Our UF Extension website is SolutionsForY-
ourLife.com. There, Floridians can find a wealth of in-
formation to help improve the quality of life.
Extension home economics education began in the
early 1900's along with agriculture as a community edu-
cational outreach of the land grant university system.
In the early years, home demonstration agents provided
training in canning, sewing, meal planning and home
management to adults in clubs organized throughout
the county. Youth also learned these skills through 4-H
clubs. The goal was to help families maximize their re-
sources to increase the quality of life for their families.
We still answer food preservation questions,
statewide county. programs vary according to the needs
identified by local advisory boards. Today, Extension
family consumer science programs certify safe food
handlers and child care providers; as well as teach class-
es in home buying, nutrition & wellness, financial liter-
acy, pre-marriage, and parenting.
Madison County Extension is part of the University
of Florida/ IFAS Extension Service. We are still in the
business of educating individuals and families to build
a lifestyle that is healthful, nurturing and economically
stable. For more information, contact the Madison
County Extension Service.

A Sobering Thought About Alcohol Sales
The following is the opinion of this writer and does not
necessarily reflect the opinion of Greene Publishing, Inc.
Try this one on for size, Straight Talk with no
hidden agenda. No politics, no buddy-buddy, no
leaning left or right. Just what I know or at least,
what I think I know.
A funny thing happened on the way to your future!
. That's right, your future.
As I hope you have read recently, the Vision 2020
process is well under way. Under the direction of sever-
al PH.d types from the University of Florida, Vision 2020
is made up of volunteer citizens of Madison County The
first meeting was some 85 strong. It is an attempt to cre-
ate a roadmap for our community between now and the
year 2020.
Hats off to those who attended that first meeting back
in February There was no verbal brick throwing and no
apparent hidden agendas. Just good folks with some
heartfelt ideas of what they would like to see in this
county in the next 10 to 12 years.
From this first meeting came many dozens of ideas,
which, once grouped together by subject, lead to the cre-
ation of eight core committees. The second nuepting was
March 6, where the first ideas were fine-tuned. There,
are two meetings remaining, March 18 at the Agricul-
ture Center and March 27 back to the Student Center at
NFCC.
By the way, if you missed the first two meetings, it's
not too late to get involved. All input is welcomed.
But let me go back to the first meeting and highlight
an interesting reaction to an interesting proposal. Mid-
way through the discussion, Elmer Spear raised his
hand and said that he would like to see alcohol sales in
Madison County A man that does not drink made this
recommendation!
The reaction was enthusiastic and loud in favor of
the recommendation. In fact, in my opinion, had the
vote for alcohol sales taken place at that meeting, alco-
hol sales in Madison County would have been legal be-
fore we stepped out of the building.
Another interesting point is that of all the dozens of
great ideas that were put forth that evening, none were
greeted with the same enthusiasm. None.
The last time that alcohol sales were put on the bal-
lot in Madison County was some 15 or so years ago, and
obviously it did not pass. Is it time to put it on the bal-
lot again? I think so.
There are a large number of nationally known chain
restaurants that consider alcohol sales a major profit
line item in their budgets. Fact is several local restau-
rants would like to have it as a budget option in their ex-
isting restaurants as well. No alcohol sales likely
equates to no chain restaurants.
But here's where the punch line really comes in.
At the most recent meeting of the Madison County
Commission, Spear ran his thoughts by the county com-
missioners. Of course, they could not voice their opin-
ion one-way or another, at least not at this stage of the
game.
But the most interesting thought of the day came im-
mediately after Spear left the podium.
A sobering thought indeed.
Marianne Green was given the floor after Spear on to-
tally unrelated business. However, the first words she
said were directed at Spear's comments. And although
this quote is not exact, her comments are a refreshing
matter of public record. She said something to the effect
of, "I applaud Elmer and his efforts to establish alcohol
sales in our county If nothing else, a vote to pass alco-
hol is a vote to end the existing hypocrisy in Madison
County. I'm a good Baptist, but I have to tell you, from
time to time, I enjoy a beer with my pizza or a glass of
wine with my dinner."
There it was. Out in the open. She had said what so
many have thought for so long.
Who are we kidding beside ourselves?
Any visitor to our county can travel down most any
country road and see alcohol cans and bottles thrown
about. And this is a "dry county," really?
Maybe it's time to do some good old-fashioned soul
searching, regardless of how you might vote on this is-
sue.
For this concept to become law, Spear, and his legion
of followers, has the daunting task of collecting the
names of 2,985 registered voters on a petition. This rep-
resents 25% of the total number of registered voters in
Our county
My name will be on the petition. -

We don't usually begin this column with bad news
but this is an exception our beloved former Mayor,
Louis DeMotsis and wife Dot were involved in a serious
auto accident this morning (Tuesday) and Dot was criti-
cally injured the entire town is stunned and praying
for her., She is in South Georgia Medical Center. By the
time this reaches you, we can only hope she is better.
While we're on the subject, the Bobby Bembry fami-
ly has been through some rough times lately. Bobby, Dan-
ny and Jacob have all been in the hospital, but all are do-
ing a little better. Bobby said Jacob went back to work
yesterday but none of them are really out of the woods
yet.
We do have some great news, though, concerning the
pageant. Charlene Rye and her wonderful crew did a su-
per job this year. The event was held in the NFCC audi-
torium, capacity 550, and was almost full. Absolutely
everything, and most especially the contestants -
werecharming, lovely, beautiful and all other appropri-
ate adjectives! I understand that Emerald is going to
have it all covered nicely our thanks to her so we will
just say loads of thanks to Charlene and crew for all
their talent and hard work and let you see and read
about the lovely contestants in the paper.
That nasty old flu bug is trying its hand at knocking
our girls at Town Hall completely out this time it failed
to keep them from work last time. But those girls are
tough we're betting on them!
And outside looks like we're going to have a little
rain but we won't mind even though son Pat is almost
through painting the outside of the family room. Maybe
we will just enjoy a nice nap if it does rain.
So long for now we hope you all have a wonderful
week!
PS.:
Don't forget Lee Day it's fast approaching! Have

Park Trespasser Booked For Marijuana Possession


On March 4, Cpl. Michael D. Mau-
rice of the Madison County Sheriff's
K-9 Unit was conducting a spot check
of a county park for criminal activity.
Pulling into the park, Maurice ob-
served a vehicle backed up to the
northwest fence line directly beside
the sign that stated the park was
closed from sunset to sunrise.
Maurice made contact with the two
occupants to inform them that the
park was closed. While talking with
them, Maurice detected an odor of
burnt marijuana coming from the ve-
hicle, also observing a bag of marijua-
na that was sitting in plain view be-


tween to driver and passenger.
Maurice detained the two and re-
trieved the bag of marijuana. The
passenger, Melvine Boynton, 18, of
Madison, admitted the marijuana was
hers. Boynton was transported to the
jail but before entering the jail she
also admitted that she had an addi-
tional bag of marijuana stuffed in her
pants.
Boynton was charged with posses-
sion of marijuana and booked into the
Madison County Jail. Deputy Jimmy
Fletcher, Madison Police Sgt. James
Roebuck and Officer Tiffany Travis as-
sisted Maurice at the scene.


CFO Sink Announces Arrest Of A Duval County Man On
Charges Of Insurance Fraud, Grand Theft, And Forgery


Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex
Sink today announced the arrest of a Du-
val County man on charges he fraudu-
lently received nearly $400,000 in life in-
surance from an accelerated death
claim. The arrest involves charges of al-
leged insurance fraud, grand theft,
forgery and uttering a forged instru-
ment.
Raymond J. Martinez, Jr., 49, of Jack-
sonville, is accused of forging a doctor's
signature on a claim form submitted to
New York Life Insurance Company
(NYLIC). In the form, Martinez stated he
had terminal cancer and would likely
live 12-months or less. In response to his
fraudulent claim Martinez received a
$375,000 check from NYLIC. Martinez,
arrested last week, is currently being
held in the Duval County Jail. If con-
victed, he could potentially face up 30
years in prison.
"Insurance fraud affects everyone,
from an increase in premiums for policy-
holders to the monetary loss of the com-
pany" CFO Sink said. "My office will
continue to ensure those who commit in-


surance fraud are aggressively pursued
and held accountable for their devious
actions."
The charges stem from investiga-
tions by the Department of Financial
Services' Division of Insurance Fraud
(DIF), a sworn statewide law enforce-
ment agency responsible for the investi-
gation of insurance fraud. The DIF
made more than 800 insurance fraud-re-
lated arrests in the last fiscal year.
Insurance fraud in Florida has been
estimated to cost Floridians as much as
$1,400 a year per person. The DIF inves-
tigates various forms of fraud in insur-
ance, including health, life, auto, proper-
ty and workers' compensation insur-
ance. Depending on the estimated loss
amount, the department will pay up to
$25,000 for information directly leading
to an arrest and conviction. Anyone
with information about this or any other
suspected insurance fraud is asked to
call the department's Fraud Fighters

Akerman's -
contribution to
the slick, colorful

brief history of .
Florida cattle
ranching, "From
Conquistadors to
Crackers." He
traces the intro-
duction of cattle
by the Spanish
conquistadors in
the 1500's through
the age of the cat-
tie kings in the
mid-to late 1800's to mod-
ern-day Florida and
shrinking ranch lands.
Akerman emphasizes the
environmentalist bent of
the Florida cattleman and
ranching's survival as an
integral part of the state's
agricultural industry
Recognized as a lead-
ing authority on the histo-
ry of cattle ranching in
Florida, Akerman has had
a long and distinguished
career as a writer, teacher
and public speaker. His
published works include

Mark Akerman, his son.
Akerman retired in .
2003 after teaching history
at North Florida Commu-

He holds degrees from
the University of Florida
and Rollins College. A Ful-
bright Scholar, he received
an advanced degree in his-
tory from The Johns Hop-

traveled, studied and
worked in the western
United States and Europe.

Buying Into The Cookie Habit


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
It is that special time of
year again. The sun is shin-
ing brighter, birds are start-
ing to chirp happily,
sweaters are becoming less
frequently needed articles
of clothing, and there are
little green outfitters pass-
ing out boxes of cookies in
front of the grocery store.
Up-coming summer diets
everywhere are being
outweighed by the un-
controllable desire to
stock one's shelves with "
enough "Thin Mints"
and "Do-si-dos" to last d.Ii
through an ice age, while
the pint sized green pastry
pushers fade happily into the
sunset counting collected cookie
wages and dreaming about sum-
mer camp. The Girl Scouts are /
serious about their cookies, it
is what drives them, and their .
supplies have just been replen-
ished..
The Girl Scouts aim is to
help girls develop to their full
potential by pursuing main
goals such as developing to
their individual potential, to relate
to others with increased under-
standing, to grow with skills and re-
spect, to develop a meaningful set of
.values to guide their actions, to pro-
vide for sound decision making, and
to contribute to the improvement of
-society.
The Girl Scout motto that is re-
cited at the beginning of each meet-
ing serves as a reminder of these
goals.
On my honor, I will try
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout
Law.
As' one service, Girls Scouts
,,1hAve ~, priding cookies for,
their hungry communities as early
as 1917. The first official record of a
Girl Scout cookie purchase taking
place was December 1917, by the
Mistletoe Troop in Muskogee, Okla-


homa. Under the tutelage of Juliette
Gordan Low, founder of the Girls
Scouts, girls started out with home-
made cookies they baked, then sold;
using the monies 'they earned to fi-
nance activities. Then, in 1934, the
Girl Scout Cookie industry went
commercial. Things have only got-
ten better for the Girl Scouts since
then. Today, there are over 300 Girl
Scout Councils selling cookies, in
front of stores, in booths, and in of-
fices of their parents across the US.
As these cookie sales still finance
the troops' activities, such as camp-
ing, badges, arts and crafts and ser-
vice projects, they play a vital roll
in the Girl Scout organization.
"We use the money the girls
n make, with te cookie' sales," said
Janice Richards, Scout Leader, "to
fund so much for the girls. The ser-
vice programs, especially, where we
go to the retirement homes and hos-
pitals. It gets the girls out helping in


the community, helping people, they
love it."
In return, the community sup-
ports the Girl Scouts by purchasing
cookies, lots and lots of boxes of
cookies. Some varieties have been
around since the start of Girl
Scouts. Standard fa-
vorites such as
thin mint, choco-
late chip, peanut
butter, and sugar
S cookies leave no room
for improvement, but now
added to the list are some varia-
tions of old classics. In an in-
creasingly health conscience na-
tion, for example, the ever forward
looking Girls Scouts have come up
with sugar free forms of wafer de-
lights. Not to panic though, deca-
dence is still an important part of
the cookie habit.
This year, Madison's community
of cookie munchers can treat them-
selves to seven varieties of G.S. de-
lights, showing their support for the
girls in green. Five old favorites,
Thin Mints, the mint flavored choco-
late wafers dipped in chocolate, Tre-
foils, shortbread cookies, Samoas,
vanilla cookies coated in Carmel
then sprinkled with toasted coconut
and laced with chocolate, Taga-
longs, vanilla cookies layered with
peanut butter then covered with
chocolate, and Do-si-dos, peanut but-
ter filling between oatmeal cookies,
top the list followed by three new
kinds. Added are, Sugar Free Choco-
late Chips, Lemonades, shortbread
cookies with lemon icing, and All'
,Abouts, shortbread cookies dipped
in fudge and topped with an em-
bossed thank-you message in one of
five languages.
With an all-star line up like
this, the girls are sure to out do
themselves this year and what bet-
ter way to support them back, than
to help unload their cookie wares.
Nothing says thank you for your
support like an embossed chocolate
covered treat. 0

God blesses us so
abundantly. Sunday morn-
ing at our church was a
fine example of his gifts.
Our congregation's own
"Shekinah" blessed us
with a beautiful perfor-
mance of "Christ the Lord
is Risen Today" They were
followed by the choir's ren-
dition of "Empty Now."
The offering was again
collected for the Annie

ing, which is

services
are to the

meet, the ones
they teach, and the Lord.
Several members from
our church family partici-
pated in '"A Walk for Life"
for Madison's Pregnancy
Center. Each walker was
sponsored by a person or
a business and raised
money based on how far
they walked. Walking be-
gan in the morning and
continued all afternoon.
God has blessed our
church so greatly and we
have raised enough mon-
ey to buy an ultrasound


machine for the center.
A bridal shower will
be thrown for Melissa Ed-
wards and Hank Stewart
this Sunday, March 16.
May God bless their
marriage with an eternity
of joy and love. This Sun-
day we will also be cele-

Lee Homecoming Scholarship Pageant 2008



Showcases Beauty, Grace And Community


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Charlene Rye did it again.
The Lee Homecoming Scholar-
ship Pageant 2008 was a huge
success. Held at the Van H.
Priest Auditorium on the NFCC
campus, the pageant was filled
with popular and beautiful con-
testants while the room was
filled to capacity with their
proud family and friends.
With the support of so many
who consider the event a center-
piece of festivities leading to Lee
Homecoming Day on April 5, Rye


worked tirelessly to ensure the
event would be enjoyed by con-
testants and guests alike. Fami-
ly and community pride definite-
ly came together for the March 8
event.
The 2008 winner for Miss Lee
was Brittany Hudson. Ashlyn
Welch won Miss Teen and Nicole
Davis won Miss Pre-Teen.
The event kicked off at 6:00
p.m. with several very entertain-
ing younger categories such as
Baby Belle, which was won by Si-
enna Guillen, and Tiny Princess,
which was won by Calli Knight.


These divisions were for new-
borns to one and one to two re-
spectively.
Leandra Land won the three
to four years age group, repre-
senting the Princess category.
Junior Little Miss, covering the
five to six age grouping was won
by Savannah Parnell. And
Bethany Williams won the seven
to nine age bracket, titled Little
Miss.
The little guys even got in on
the fun this year with the Tiny
Prince division. The division
goes from ages one to two and


was won by Gunnar Webb.
A separate recognition from
the pageant winners, but still
very much a part of the
evening's acknowledgements,
went to Marjorie Heatter. Pre-
sented with the title of Honorary
Miss Lee, Heatter wrote a mov-
ing message expressing her ap-
preciation that was included in
the event program. Two of Heat-
ter's daughters, Jane Dickey and
Marta Smith, are part of the
Madison County school system.
The prizes and donations
this year showcased the commit-


ment of organizers to promote
the ongoing development of the
contestants, which included an
impressive $1000 scholarship.
"We got so much support
this year. April Harris and Sum-
mer Hicks did so much to help. I
can't thank them enough," Rye
noted.
Organizers and advertisers
want to thank everyone for their
support of this great event. This
reporter joins all the residents of
Lee and Madison County in ap-
preciation for all the fine young
ladies who participated.

Madison Academy Hosts Third




Annual Golf Tournament


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On Saturday, February 23,
56 golfers divided into 14 teams
consisting of both men and
women players, took part in
Madison Academy's third annu-
al Golf Tournament and Auc-
tion. Raising over $21,000
through both events, the Acade-
my's Golf Tournament and Din-
ner/Auction was a huge success
and the PAT Club would like to
thank all those who donated
and volunteered for the occa-
sion.
Golfers that participated in
the event at the Madison Coun-
try Club enjoyed lunch served


by volunteers before playing an
18-hole super ball tournament.
Prizes were awarded to the 1st,
2nd, and 3rd place teams as well
as longest drive, closest to the
pin and longest putt.
The first place winners
were a team consisting of Bai-
ley Browning, Gareth Smith,
Ted Beggs and John Haire,
sponsored by Davis, Schnitker,
Reeves and Browning. Larry
Olive, Mike Norfleet, LaRue
Tippette and Junior Barrs came
in second place while third was
filled by Sammy Hicks, Scott
Cassels, Bill Gunnells and Curt
Womack with their team spon-
sored by Capital City Bank.


Connie McClamma received
Longest Drive Women, not to be
outdone by Brian Bibb, Longest
Drive Men. Dennis McClamma
was the closest to the pin and
John Haire had the longest
putt.
After golf was played and
winners chosen, everybody was
treated to a prime rib dinner be-
fore the auction started. A beau-
tifully decorated event and a
huge success for all that took
part, Madison Academy thanks
all the golfers, donors and vol-
unteers for their help and sup-
port. The event could not have
played out as fabulously had it
not been for all of the effort and


hard work of Michael Akes,
Head of School, PAT Club offi-
cers, Kelly Zimmerly, Jamie An-
drews, Jesse Howe, Kim Scott
and Katherine Cantey, liaison
Rhonda Gore and volunteers
Gene Alberti, Neva Baltzell,

lyn Blair, Linda-Bezick, Willa

Shannon Hettinger, Annette
Johnson, Julie Maultsby, Melis-
sa McCamman, Susan Pickles,
Gina Rutherford, Gareth and
Chandra Smith, Melirida Smith,
Jarrod and Lauren Sullivan,


Elizabeth Waring and Kim
Whigham.
Once again, thanks to all
players for joining in Madison
Academy's Golf Tournament, it
is hoped that everyone enjoyed
the day of golf and auction din-
ner. With community support,
Madison Academy's current en-
rollment of 200 students, grades
3K to 8th grade will continue to
grow, keeping the same quality
education that their students
have consistently received since
the Academy's start forty years
ago.

Golden Leaf Plantation Has Proud Hunting Heritage


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Whether accommodating one or a
dozen, Golden Leaf Plantation, a 1,000-
acre hunting lodge owned by Joe Ball
Reams in Greenville, offers a variety of
hunting packages that include every-
thing from full-service lodging to
guides to dogs, but mostly it includes a
proud hunting heritage that's been
built over decades.
With help from family, like wife
Kim and cousin Jackson Mugge, the
hunting experiences Reams offers lack
for absolutely nothing.
"The 1,000 acres that make up Gold-
en Leaf Plantation were used for tobac-
co farming back in the 1920's. Later,we
left farming and launched commercial
hunting on the property in 1987,"
Reams explained.
"We specialize in quail hunting, al-
though other game is available as well.
We also maintain a lake, so our guests
can fish for free, along with other fea-
tures like fully equipped Jeeps," Reams
added.
"Quail hunting run.s;from October
to April. So, we still have packages

they baggedfrom the recent hunt theyprovided to Daniel Greene and his "Pop," grand-
father Tommy Greene.


available for every hunter and budget,"
he went on to say.
Recently, Daniel Greene and grand-
father Tommy Greene had the opportu-
nity to hunt quail at Golden Leaf Plan-
tation. Both had a great time, not to
mention a very successful hunt. In the
end, they both agreed that the hunt
lived up to the Golden Leaf Plantation
slogan, "Quail hunting is forever."
Daniel Greene headed off to basic
training in the Marines, and of
course those at Greene Publishing,
Inc. wish him a safe return. Perhaps
it's only fitting that prior to shipping
off, he had the opportunity to build a
hunting memory with "Pop," which
he can take with him forever, compli-
ments of Golden Leaf Plantation.
Joe and Kim reside with their two
daughters, Savannah (16) and Chris-
tianna (12), who both attend Aucilla
Christian Academy. Anyone seeking
more information is urged to call
Golden Leaf Plantation at 948-7891 or
973-7135.
