The Madison County Sheriff's Department,
teaming with the Florida Department of Law En-
forcement, is concluding a ten-month investiga-
tion with numerous arrests for charges, ranging
from "Trafficking Cocaine within 1000 ft. of a
Church" to "Sale of Crack Cocaine" to "Traffick-

The bust was launched the morning of March

Warning:

Possible Magnet

Advertising Scam
By Ted Ensminger
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Tracy Bowen of Bowen's Towing
Service called Greene Publishing, Inc.
early on the morning of March 19 to
report what she suspected to be a busi-
ness scam involving the sale of adver-
tising on magnets.
The caller selling the advertising
represented that they were "Working
with the Madison Police Department,
Madison County Chamber of Com-
merce, 911 and Madison Fire Rescue,"
said Bowen. Shle reported that the
caller made it sound like the company
was working in cooperation with the
county and city offices. In addition,
she reported that she had received two
calls from what she thought were from
two different companies. "One lady
who called was selling magnet ad
space for $199, then a couple of hours
later a man called, and the price was
$399," she continued.
"I have not heard anything, nor
have we authorized such activities,"
reported Madison Police Chief, Rick
Davis. "It is our policy that if we par-
ticipate in an approved program, I is-
sue a letter of authorization to show
the effort is authentic," he continued.
Madison County Chamber of Com-
merce office manager Teri Shefbuch
says that there is no official connec-
tion there either. 'A couple of times a
year, boxes of magnets show up with
emergency numbers and advertising
on them. We've probably received 500
magnets in the last year of so, but it's
difficult to give out that many"
So, it appears that Madison County
businesses have a choice to make. Ap-
parently none of the Madison County
offices mentioned actually benefit fi-
nancially from the advertising sales,
no matter what might be represented

Vision 2020 To Conclude March 27


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
As the community
moves to the conclusion
of the Vision 2020 process
next week, there will be
conclusions that may re-
quire residents to "agree
to disagree." For in-
stance, debate regarding
the manner in which
county resources, both
human and financial,
should be allocated, will
continue beyond this for-
mal planning.


Decades before this
planning process, the psy-
chology behind the differ-
ent ways people look at
the same situation was
studied. One of the more
famous studies, the clas-
sic "Optimist Versus Pes-
simist Test," asked people
whether they saw a half-
filled glass of water as be-
ing "half-full" or "half-
empty." In the end, a sim-
ple discovery surfaced.
Regardless of what peo-
ple are labeled, even the


most intelligent, well-
rounded people can and
will view the same situa-
tion very differently
Whatever the compar-
ison, the idea is simple;
neighbors will be divided
on issues. Put another
way, county residents Will
express different priori-
ties regarding the same
set of facts and resources,
simply having a different
preference for its future.

Jacob Bembry, long-
time employee and editor
of the Madi-
S son County
Carrier and
the Madison
Enterprise
Recorder
was readmit-
ted into Tal-
Jacob lahassee
Bembry Memorial


Hospital, suffering from
complications that may
be the result of a recent
surgery
Bembry was operated
on several weeks ago for
an intestinal obstruction
and the healing process
seemed to be going ac-
cording to plan. He was
even able to return to
work for a couple of days.
However, this past
weekend, Bembry began


to complain of pain in his
legs and upper body.
Upon being examined by
his physician, Bembry
was admitted into Madi-
son County Memorial
Hospital on Monday,
March 17. After over-
night treatment and ob-
servation at MCMH, he
was transferred at mid-
day Tuesday to Tallahas-
see Memorial Hospital.

Commission,


District 1


I am respectfully announcing my

tion for Madison, Taylor and Jefferson
counties.
We have two children, Brian and
Angela, who were both educated in the
Madison public school system. My
wife, Kay, has taught in the school sys-
tem for 36 years.

the First United Methodist Church
since moving to Madison. I have been
very active in church work, teaching
Sunday school and serving on many
committees.

others and providing community ser-
vice. I was a member of The Madison
County Jaycees, where I was selected
as the Outstanding Local President in
1980, for the State of Florida. I was a

iff's Reserve unit for 15 years. I served
for four years on the Big Bend United
Cerebral Palsy Board of Directors. I

served for four years. I look forward to
working with the hospital staff as they
go forward with the new hospital.

rectors for the Madison County Cham-
ber of Commerce, where I was Chair-
man of The Four Freedoms Festival in
2007. I am an active member of The
Gideon's International, serving as
Camp President. I am a member of the
Madison Rotary Club, where I will
proudly serve as Club President 2008-
09.
I look forward to serving you as

ter an exciting and challenging time in
our county's future. We need to work
together toward finding new positive
industries for Madison County I also
look forward to helping ensure that
Madison County develops sound re-

Let Down

Once again, I'm in Tallahassee memorial hospital. I
ended up in the emergency room Sunday night, then
again Monday On Monday, at about noon, I was trans-
ported to TMH where they discovered, as my doctor,
Julie Schindler, had feared, that I had blood clots in my
lungs.
I stayed in the ER at TMH from about 1 p.m. until 1
a.m. Tuesday morning when they had a room ready for
me.
I thank God that I'm getting the help I need, but I feel
like I'm letting so many people down.
I cannot be there for my family who needs me, but I
thank God that there are other family members, friends
and church members who are there to help them. I can-
not be there for my co-workers, but, as you see, they're
still able to get the job done. I cannot be there for my
readers, who I hope miss me and who I hope are praying
for me.
I am hoping and praying to be out of here by Satur-
day, so I can be in church on Sunday, honoring the res-
urrection of Jesus Christ.

Handle Easter Eggs With Care
Easter is this weekend and that means many house-
holds will be dyeing eggs for decoration and egg hunts.
Not to spoil your Easter fun, but food safety needs to be
considered when handling eggs. Each time you handle
an egg, it increases the chances of contact with bacteria.
Following food safety guidelines during your Easter cel-
ebrations will keep eggs from ruining the holiday cele-
bration.
If you are having an Easter egg hunt, it is best to use
plastic eggs. There are many food safety issues with us-
ing real eggs. They should not be out 9f the refrigerator-
for longer than two hours, and if yoti hide them outside
there is the issue of warmer temperatures and the prob-
lem of avoiding areas where they may come into contact
with pet, wild life, insects and lawn chemicals. So you
can see why I'm not even going there.
Plastic eggs are colorful, easy to hide and you can
hide surprises inside each egg. They don't present a
food safety issues and when the hunt is over, you can go
inside* and enjoy eating the refrigerated hard cooked
eggs..
When handling eggs, you should thoroughly wash
your hands each step of the way Whether you are cook-
ing, cooling or dyeing eggs wash your hands. If you
won't be coloring your eggs right after cooking them,
store them in their original carton in the refrigerator.
Inspect eggs for cracks before and after coloring. All
cracked eggs should not be eaten and need to be thrown
away If you use cooked eggs for a centerpiece or other
decoration, and know they will be at room temperature
for a dAy or two, discard them after use.
When you prepare fresh egg use the method recom-
mended by the Egg Board to prevent overcooking. If
your hard cooked eggs have a green ring around the
yolk, you have cooked them too long. Follow these sim-
ple steps:
Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan. Add
enough tap water to come at least 1 inch above the eggs.
Cover. Quickly bring the water to a boil and turn off the
heat.
If necessary, remove the pan from the burner to pre-
vent further boiling. For hard-cooked eggs, let eggs
stand covered in the hot water for 15 minutes for large,
12 minutes for medium and 18 minutes for extra large.
Immediately run cold water over eggs or place them in
ice water until completely cooled.
To remove the shell, crack it by tapping gently all
over.
Roll the egg between your hands to loosen the shell.
Peel, starting at the large end. Hold the egg under run-
ning cold water or dip in a bowl of water to help ease the
shell off.

Springtime Has Arrived


The temperatures
have been warmer and the
days are longer. My first
official sign of Spring is
Springing the clocks
ahead, although officially
the first day of Spring on
the calendar comes about
a week later on March
20th. It's been difficult try-
ing to explain to three year
olds about daylight sav-
ings time. They have been
arguing that it's not time
to come in take a bath and
go to bed, because it is still
light-daytime at 8 p.m.
Same thing in the morn-
ing, it's not time to get up
because it is still dark-
nighttime. But they're ad-
justing. I love the "Spring
Ahead" because it doesn't
always mean I'm both
leaving for Valdosta to
pick up the paper and re-
turning in the dark. I have
a lot of difficulty driving
at night.
Last week's column,
my subject was green.
This week, I'm noticing a
more colorful world
around me. Beautiful
shades of white, cream,
yellow, pinks and purple
are popping up along all of
our beautiful country
roads. I've also noticed a
lot of blue birds and
bright red cardinals nest-
ing in the trees around our
property The grandchil-
dren have also been notic-
ing and provide me with
lots of samples of all the
pretty flowers popping up
in my yard. Almost every-
day, they bring me in a
handful of Jasmine
blooms, Azalea flower
heads and other little flow-
ers they find, even some
fruit blossoms. "Look
Grandma, I picked you
some flowers!" What can
we say to these little peo-
ple, except "How Pretty"
and take them and put
them in a bowl of water
(because they have no
stems) then smile and give
them a big hug. Trinity, is


my best flower picker.
So with the warmer
days, birds singing and
flowers blooming, I have
officially welcomed
Spring's arrival at last.
Only problem now is that I
no longer have an excuse
for not getting out there to
rake the yard, pull the
weeds, and spruce up the
yard and gardens. I've al-
ways enjoyed working in
my gardens. Although
lately, with all these old
age aches and pains, it's
not as easy as it used to be,
but I still try to do my best.
This Sunday is Easter,
already I've got plans to
have an Easter Egg Hunt
for the grandchildren Sat-
urday. It should be\more


enjoyable this year as they
are older and might get a
better idea of what they're
supposed to do, without
their parents helping so
much. Kelsea may still
need some help and en-
couragement, but I'm sure
she'll do fine.
I would like to wish all
my readers a very happy
Easter and a happy
Spring! Take time to enjoy
all the colorful flowers and
birds in Madison County,
as they too, are God's gifts
to you!

HEATH


Around The Town
Thelma Thompson
Guest Columnist


The sky seems depressed
But I'm happy because
Like God's creatures I'm blessed
With a small cozy nest
As I sit and day dream
Of happiness past
Then scene after scene
Evokes from memories suppressed
We danced thru the twenties
So happy and free
But those years of plenty
Ended with a plea
To God whom we'd forgotten
But He heard His children
Even tho we'd been rotten
And all thru the depression
We 'did unto others'
And were united as one family
All sisters and brothers
And America again became strong.
And why do we never learn from history for history al-
ways repeats itself.
Here we would like to pay tribute to some of those stalwart
citizens, both merchants and farmers of the Lee Community,
who 'stood tall' during those twenties and thirties (when we
'patched the patches') and kept us from going under as many
small towns did.
Among those were the families of Clib Black-Shelly Whit-
ty-Sam Lamb-Emory Turlington-Ed McCall-Lamar Stokes-
Walter Williams-Frank Stroud-W.D. Johnson-George Brown-
Buck McMullen-Perry Kinsey-H.J. Davis-John Henry
Williams-the Donaldsons-the Doctors Mickler-Johnson-Ham-
rick-Arie Haven-J.E. Whitty-Newt Webb-the Bridges-Mattie
Raines & Vesta Blanton-the Burkharts, Bells and Moores-Tom
Kent-Emma Koon-Arthur Ragans-the Stroups-the Smiths-the
Jones-the Thomases-the Registers-the Charlie Williams fami-
ly-the Mauldins and Chandler Matheny
And among the farming community-which managed to
keep us fed-there were so many that we can only list those
whom we remember around where we lived the Doc, Jim, and
Will Driggers-the Sim Driggers-the Frank & Edgar Stokes-Will
Welch-Barney Bass-Oliver McCall-Bart Webb-Will Shaw-
George Bowen-George Payne-William Ward-Gordon Hender-
son-the Ponders, Agners, the Berry Ezells, the Hicks, the
Hales, the Elmore & Russell Williams',the Phillips,and John
and Will King- the Bembrys, Cherrys, Rogers, Flynns, and
Webbs-the Sullivans, Mitchell Johnsons, the Allens and the
Heads-the Stewarts, Lammons Bellflowers and Tindalls-Roy
Welch, Lloyd and Ira Richardson, the Tooles, Herman
Williams family-Thompsons-Rutherfords-Barrs-Jacksons-and
the Tutens.
All of the above, plus a few hundred more, plus their an-
cestors and heirs, are the reason that theLee Community is so
closely knit today that only a major catastrophe could break it
apart. And for that, we who live in this community offer a fer-
vent thanks to them and to God from whom they received their
strength. Amen.
P.S. Please join those heirs on Saturday, April 5, when we
celebrate the heritage of our community

Center at 5:00, perceptions will still vary, but at least
everyone will leave as part owner of the ten-year plan.
Residents are strongly urged to attend this final of
four and new visitors are especially wanted to hear a
summary of results and the action plans that have
emerged. Most people consistently speak out against
government making decisions for them, but ironically
that is exactly what occurs by default without commu-
nity participation. Organizers want all to come and be

his legs had moved into the lungs. Bembry is under the

BOCC


cont from page 1A


Madison County. Although law requires that this group
have a means to acquire lodging, the BOCC isn't looking
to make it comfortable or easy, instead looking to slow
the flow as much as possible.
Madison County Sheriff's Department Investigator
Sharon Shadrick supervises this process. She explained
a few details of the state regulations and then com-
mended Greene Publishing, Inc., and Editor Jacob Bem-
bry in particular, for the consistent effort in publicizing
the movement of all categories of sexual offenders.
"We need to do as much as we can to keep these peo-
ple from coming to Madison County and we need to
make sure our ordinances are as strict as possible,"
Commissioner Ricky Henderson noted. All agreed.
Perhaps the most moving item of new business how-
ever was a request introduced by Retired Sheriff Joe
Peavy on behalf of the Steve Agner family. Agner was
killed in 1999 while a Deputy in the Madison .County
Sheriff's Department. The group was requesting per-
mission to place a small monument on the courthouse
lawn in remembrance of Agner, which the board set in
motion. There is no cost to the county
Additional business included approval of the Madi-
son County Debris Management Plan that was present-
ed by Emergency Management Director Jim Stanley.
"This plan is mandatory to receive the maximum re-
source support from FEMA and an essential component
for the county's emergency planning," Stanley noted.
The board also accepted the Madison County Devel-
opment Council's recommendation for Colliers Dickin-
son of Jacksonville to list the 48 remaining acres that
comprise the Madison County Development/Industrial
Complex located on Dale Leslie Drive near the Lee in-
terchange. The firm cited their expertise at bringing
suitable commercial interest to the site.
Lastly, Elmer Spear of Elmer's Genealogy an-
nounced his intention to solicit voters to change Madi-
son County's alcohol status from "dry" to "wet." Ac-
cording to an initial review, approximately 3000 signa-
tures would be required to bring it to ballot.

CERT Holds Training Exercise


What if a category IV
hurricane that was con-
tinuing to strengthen was
headed for the Gulf coast
at the Taylor County-Jef-
ferson County line? Most
likely Taylor County resi-
dents would be asked to
evacuate. How would that
impact Madison County?
In this scenario for
Madison County, Ama-
teur Radio Emergency
Services (ARES), and the
Community Emergency
Response Team (CERT),
monitoring traffic coming
through our county
would be a priority.
CERT was deployed
Saturday, March 15, 2008*
to the intersection of 1-10
and Hwy 14. Because of a
traffic accident at the
West bound 248 mile
marker, they were as-
signed to assist law en-
forcement in directing
West bound traffic off of
1-10 and on to Hwy 14
North to Madison. The
focus of their exercise

What is the significance of
Easter to the Christian? For some
people, Easter strictly belongs to
the realm of the Easter bunny
and family get-togethers. For oth-
ers, Easter is primarily a time of
celebrating Jesus' death, burial,
and resurrection. For many, East-
er -- like Christmas -- is cele-
brated as a combination of the
secular and the sacred.
Understanding Easter
from a Christian perspective
is vitally important. The cele-
bration of Jesus' death, bur-
ial, and resurrection from the
dead is crucial for believers in
Jesus' Christ. Without this
doctrine, there is no Chris-
tianity and no Christian East-
er.
Beyond doctrine is the
knowledge of the truth that
Jesus died to pay the penalty
of death that we deserve for
our sin, was buried, and rose
with a glorified body, gaining
victory- over death and the
grave. When we put our faith
in Him by believing through
faith alone in Christ alone, we
have the promise of one day
having a body like our Lord's
and reigning with Him in heaven.
Philippians 3:20-21 states,
"But our citizenship is in heaven.
And we eagerly await a Savior
from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,
who, by the power that enables
him to bring everything under his
control, will transform our lowly
bodies so that they will be like his
glorious body."
2 Timothy2:11-12 says "Here is
a trustworthy saying: If We died
with him, we will also live with
him; if we endure, we will also
reign with him. ." This gives
hope to the Christian at Easter
time and throughout the year.

grave. This was extended, by
the time of the Council of
Nicaea to a forty days' Lent.
All fasting ended with the

HAPPENINGS

MADISON FIRST

BAPTIST
By: Kristin Finney
A beautiful day to worship the Lord; Sunday
was Palm Sunday and the pulpit was adorned
with a lovely Palm plant to honor it.
Our church family had the privilege of enjoy-
ing two musical presentations. The children's Sun-
day school class performed "You are worthy," "He
Lives," and "Nothing but the Blood." Followed by a
beautiful rendition of "He is Here" by the Morris
Trio. Pastor Ferrell preached an enjoyable mes-
sage from John 1:35-51 about the ministry of Jesus
and the calls of Him on our lives. At the invitation,
Jacob Driggers came forward with his mother and
father and asked to become part of the church fam- J
ily and the family of Christ through believers' bap-
tism. We also welcomed Aaron and Lyndsye Mick
and their children; Massyn, Brighten, and Reese. It
was a joyous and splendid service; thank God for
the gifts he blesses us with.
Sunday night was full of activity for the
church. At 4:00p.m. there was a bridal shower for
Melissa Edwards (Hank Stewart). All of the church
family has been invited to their wedding on March
29th at 7:00 p.m. Though there was no youth or
AWANA, at 6:00 p.m., our church hosted its annual
Easter Cantata, "To Calvary and Beyond."
| This week was also Holy Week and to honor &
this, every day at noon there were services at
churches around the community Monday, Grace
Presbyterian; Tuesday, Shiloh; Wednesday, First
Methodist; Thursday, Mt. Zion, A.M.E. The week
will be ended at Madison First Baptist on Good
SFriday

Mortgage Broker Spills Some Dirt On Mortgage Industry


Foreclosures are at
rise and more people are
falling behind on their
mortgage payments is
the headline today.
The reason for this
is that many borrowers
have adjustable mort-
gages and don't get out
of a bad deal before it's
too late. Other borrow-
ers buy a property they


can't afford with nega-
tive amortization loans-
that give borrowers op-
tions to pay 1%-2% an-
nual rate instead of the
real rate which is 7% or
8%. The difference of
5%-6% they are not pay-
ing is added to their
mortgage balance and
decreases their equity in
the home. Then it be-


comes hard to refinance
that loan because there's
no equity left. Many peo-
ple who have subprime
mortgages are inexperi-
enced borrowers and
non-US citizens who
don't understand that
they can refinance their
adjustable rates and even
negotiate with the lender
if they are facing foreclo-


sure. Thirty percent of
borrowers with sub-
prime mortgages have
built their credit history
and can refinance and
qualify for a prime rate.
In subprime market
borrowers need to watch
out for loan sharks. Most
brokers in subprime
market will hike the
rates so they can make a
lot of money. Borrow-
ers should look out for
YSP (yield spread pre-
mium) on their Good
Faith Estimate. YSP is
the fee the lender will
pay to the broker for
selling a certain rate.
If it shows more than
2%+ you're getting a
really bad deal! Also,
look out for origina-
tion fees and discount
fees. If you're being
charged more than
1.5% you should get
out of that deal and
find another broker or
lender. The best thing
to do is shop around so
you can get many loan
offers. In mortgage in-
dustry the grass is al-
ways greener some-
where else. So, shop,
shop, shop!
When you find a good
offer and you like the
rates you should re-
quest a "rate lock" and
ask the loan officer to
send you a copy of the
rate lock immediately.
A lot of loan officers
will quote you a rate
and tell you they


locked it, but they didn't.
Other things borrowers
need to look out for is
prepayment penalties.
Always ask if there are
any prepayment penal-
ties. When you have pre-
payment penalty in your
loan agreement you can
not pay off or refinance
the loan within couple
years, if you do you will
pay fees.
At closing look at
the Settlement sheet,
which has all the fees
associated with closing
the deal and see if
terms and fees have


changed from the Good
Faith Estimate you
signed. Look for the pa-
per that states "Note."
This shows exactly what
your interest and term
is going to be.
There is a great web-
site (http://www.rmdi-
rect.net ) that provides
free inside information
so borrowers don't get
burned. They also. pro-
vide FREE advice and
support to borrowers
who have problems and
facing foreclosure or

Where Girls Grow Strongs.


Confronted by a national lack of data on girls and lead-
ership, the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI) has
launched a body of work to identify what girls need to suc-
ceed as leaders. This work is designed to support and accel-
erate a national transformation launched in 2006 to mod-
ernize Girl Scouting as the premier leadership experience
for girls in the 21st century.
"In order to stay relevant to today's girls, we turn to the
girls themselves to discover what they think about impor-
tant issues," says Kathy Cloninger, CEO of Girl Scouts of the
USA. "The Girl Scout Research Institute analyses bring us
closer to learning how girls experience leadership. This cut-
ting-elge research positions GSRI as the go-to place for in-
formation on girls."
The GSRI has released a new review of research on girls
and leadership, "Exploring Girls' Leadership," that identifies
a lack of gender-specific data on youth leadership. To ad-
dress the need for further research, the GSRI has begun an
original national study scheduled for release in Spring 2008.
In addition, the GSRI is developing tools to measure the new
Girl Scout leadership programming to be introduced in Fall
2008.
"While many programs exist to help youth build leader-
ship skills, very little data exists on how girls experience
leadership and what they need to succeed in this arena,"
says Judy Schoenberg, Director of Research & Outreach for
the Girl Scout Research Institute. "As the voice of girls, the
Girl Scout Research Institute is taking on the task of identi-
fying what girls need to develop their full leadership poten-
tial."
New Research Review: "Exploring Girls' Leadership"
The GSRrs new research review, "Exploring Girls' Lead-
ership," analyzes the literature from the youth development
and youth leadership fields and contrasts continued misper-
ceptions with youths' realities and community approaches
to leadership in the field. It also suggests areas for further
study such as the aspirational gap faced by girls who see
themselves as leaders today but don't necessarily aspire to
leadership roles as adults. In addition, the review gives voice
to girls by includingfindings from a small online survey and
focus groups of girls around the country.
"Our initial research shows that for girls, leadership is
about the qualities one has, rather than about a specific role
or function, and is often viewed as a clear means toward an
end to make a difference in the world," says Schoenberg.
GSRrs focus group research, conducted with hundreds of
girls from 2004-2006, suggests that girls have a unique defini-
tion of leadership that emphasizes developing personal
strength and interpersonal skills. The quantitative survey
supports those findings and shows that girls ages 8 to 18 be-


lieve that the qualities that good leaders need most are posi-
tive attitude, listening skills and confidence.
National Study to Shape Girl Scout
Program and Policy
To address the need for further research, the GSRI is
conducting an original national study with girls in and out-
side Girl Scouting, with mothers, and with boys. This re-

Juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low assembled 18
girls from Savannah, Georgia, on March 12,
1912, for a local Girl Scout meeting. She be-
lieved that all girls should be given the oppor-
tunity to develop physically, mentally and spir-
itually. With the goal of bringing girls out of
isolated home environments and into commu-
nity service and the open air. Girl Scouts
hiked, played basketball, went on camping
trips, learned how to tell time by the stars, and
studied first aid.
Within a few years, Daisy's dream for a
girl-centeried organization was realized. Today,
Girl Sco4fs of th6 USA has a menibership ot
:nearly fpiur million girls and adults, a signifi-
'ant growth from its modest beginnings near-
ly a century ago. In fact, more than 50 million
women in the U.S. today are Girl Scout alum-
.nae. We in-vite you to learn about our robust or-

search project explores girls' and boys' definitions of leader-
ship, their perceptions and attitudes about leadership and
leadership behaviors, and what they need to see themselves
as leaders today and in the future. Results of this study will
help GSUSA develop program and policy and contribute to
the dialogue about what it-takes to grow and sustain girls'
and boys' leadership aspirations through adulthood.
New Girl Scout Program and Measurement Tools
In fall 2008, Girl Scouts of the USA will launch the New


Girl Scout Leadership Experience designed to provide girls
ages 6 to 17 with expanded leadership opportunities. In
conjunction with this new programming, the GSRI is cre-
ating tools to measure the leadership benefits that girls de-
rive from Girl Scouting.
The Transformation of Girl Scouting
In conjunction with its 95th anniversary in 2007, Girl
Scouting has launched a historic transformation to mod-
ernize the iconic organization and focus on leadership de-
velopment for girls in the 21st century In addition to creat-
ing new leadership programming for girls, Girl Scouts of
the USA is revitalizing the Girl Scout brand, creating new
fundraising models, improving volunteer systems, and sig-
nificantly realigning the national Girl Scout council infra-
structure. The monumental changes have been designed to
deliver a program that focuses on Girl Scouts' core strength
of leadership development, while also offering provable
outcomes that benefit girls, families and communities.
About the Girl Scout Research Institute
Formed in 2000, the Girl Scout Research Institute
(GSRI) is a center for research and public policy informa-
tion on the healthy development of girls. Through con-
ducting groundbreaking research, the main goal of the
GSRI is to elevate the voices of girls orn key issues that af-
fect their lives such as their emotional and physical
health and safety The GSRI originates national projects
and initiatives, synthesizes existing research and con-
ducts outcomes evaluation to support the development of
the Girl Scout program and to provide information to ed-
ucational institutions, not-for-profits, government agen-
cies, public policy organizations and to parents seeing
ways to support their daughters and to girls themselves.
The GSRI includes staff and advisors who have expertise
in child development and also includes advisors from acad-
emia, industry government and not-for-profit organiza-
tions.

FouAmdig
Juliette Gordon Low, founder of Girl
Scouts of the USA, was born Juliette
Magill Kinzie Gordon on October 31,
1860, in Savannah, Georgia.
"Daisy," as she was affectionately
called by family and friends, was the sec-
ond of six children of William Washing-
ton Gordon and Eleanor Kinzie Gordon.
Family members on her father's side
were early settlers in Georgia, and her
mother's family played an important role
in the founding of Chicago, Illminois.
A sensitive and talented youngster,
Daisy Gordon spent a happy childhood in
her large Savannah home, which was
purchased and restored by Girl Scouts of
the USA in 1953.
Young Daisy Gordon developed what
was fo become a lifetime interest in the
arts. She wrote poems; sketched, wrote
and acted in plays; and later became a
skilled painter and sculptor. She had
many pets throughout her life and was
particularly fond of exotic birds, Georgia
mockingbirds, and dogs.


S.Movemenvt:' 3miette Gordon Low


Daisy was also known for her great sense
of humor.
Early Adulthood
In her teens, Daisy attended boarding
school at Virginia Female Institute (now
Stuart Hall School) in Staunton, Va., and
later attended Mesdemoiselles Charbon-
niers, a French finishing school in New
York City.
Girl Scout Life
Juliette Gordon Low spent several
years searching for something useful to
do with her life. Her search ended in 1911,
when she met Sir Robert Baden-Powell,
founder of the Boy Scouts and Girl
Guides, and became interested in the
new youth movement. Afterwards, she
channeled all her considerable energies
into the fledgling movement.
Less than a year later, she returned to
the United States and made her historic
telephone call to a friend (a distant
cousin), saying, "I've got something for
the girls of Savannah, and all of Ameri-
ca, and all the world, and we're going to


start it tonight!" On March 12, 1912, Juli-
ette Low gathered 18 girls to register the
first troop of American Girl Guides. Mar-
garet "Daisy Doots" Gordon, her niece
and namesake, was the first registered
member. The name of the organization
was changed to Girl Scouts the following
year.
In developing the Girl Scout move-
ment in the United. States, Juliette
brought girls of all backgrounds into the
out-of-doors, giving them the opportunity
to develop self-reliance and resourceful-
ness. She encouraged gjrls to prepare not
only for traditional homemaking, but
also for possible future roles as profes-
sional women-in the arts, sciences and
business--and for active citizenship out-
side the home.
Girl Scouting welcomed girls with
disabilities at a time when they were ex-
cluded from many other activities. This
idea seemed quite natural to Juliette,
who never let deafness, back problems or
cancer keep her from full participation in


From the original 18 girls, Girl Scout-
ing has grown to 3.7 million members.
Girl Scouts is the largest educational or-
ganization for girls in the world and has
influenced the more than 50 million girls,
women and men who have belonged to it.
Juliette Gordon Low accumulated ad-
mirers and friends of all ages, nationali-
ties and walks of life. By maintaining
contact with overseas Girl Guides and
Girl Scouts during World War I, she
helped lay the foundation for the World
Association of Girl Guides and Girl
Scouts.
After her death fiom breast cancer in
1927, her friends honored her by estab-
lishing the Juliette Low World Friend-
ship Fund, which finances' international
projects for Girl Scouts and Girl Guides
around the world.
Juliette Gordon Low died at her Sa-
vannah, Georgia, home on Lafayette
Square January 17, 1927. She is buried at
Laurel Grove Cemetery in Savannah.


March 9, 1912
Juliette Gordon Low makes a historic phone call to
her cousin, Nina Pape: "Come right over! I've got some-
thing for the girls of Savannah, and all America, and all
the world, and we're going to start it tonight."
March 12, 1912
Juliette Gordon Low organizes the first U.S. "Girl
Guide" troop in Savannah, Georgia, with 18 members in
two patrols named the Carnation and White Rose.
March 1933
Approximately 16,000 people celebrate Girl Scout-
ing's 21st birthday by seeing The Girl Scout's Coming of
Age Party. A dramatic pageant, it is first presented at
Radio City Music Hall and repeated in Chicago. Local

As people become more aware of contaminated
foods being distributed to the public, pollution tainting
food supplies and global climate change affecting farm-
ers' crops, it is only natural that many are turning more
to locally grown or homegrown sources of food in order
to gain control of the quality of food being served. Imag-
ine how reassuring it would be to be able to walk out the
front door and have a constant food supply right at the
front step. Instead of a non-productive grass plot, there
are many ways to turn a front or backyard landscape
into an edible landscape of herbs, plants and flowers
that can add nutritious options to everyday meals, save
money, and add years to life by boosting the immune
system and helping ward off disease. Edible plants and
flowers can easily be arranged around the garden, be-
coming a permanent part of the scenery and adding ap-
pealing produce to family meals.
There are hundreds of edible flowering plants that
can be added to borders and flowerbeds throughout
Florida's backyards. The most common and safest edi-
ble flowers are nasturtium, pansy, violet, Johnny-jump-
ups, calendula, chives and sage. There are, however,
many others that are just as tasty though not thought of
as often for herb gardens. Blueberry bushes, for in-
stance, add beauty and structure to any landscape in
which they 'are used. as well'as being a taste treat. Bell
peppers are'not only a culinary favorite, but they also
lend color to a mixed border. Roses, a classic garden
pleaser, can be tossed into salads or used for desserts,
and can rgnge in flavor from being almost tasteless to
sweet, perfumed or even mildly spicy
"My favorite is nasturtiums," said Betty O'Toole of
O'Toole's Herb Farm "They are some of the most fla-


ip -nta i-aste
vorful of edible flowers. The leaves are nice and peppery
and the flowers taste like honeysuckle on one end and
are peppery on the other. They not only the tastiest but
also the prettiest of flowers that you can eat. There are
so many, gazillions, of edible flowers. Pretty much any
plant, fruit, or culinary herb that blooms and one can
eat, it's a safe bet that the flowers are edible too."


It




Tulips have a wonderful crunch and the flavor
ranges from pea to beanlike. Tulip petals can be used as
a low-calorie substitute for chips with dip at get-togeth-
ers or out door picnics. Tangerine Gem marigolds and
other Gem hybrids are the only good tasting marigolds.
They have a citrus-tarragon flavor and the petals can be
used for an extra lift in deviled eggs. Lilacs are another
edible flower that have a grassy or slightly perfumed fla-
vor that is well suited for chicken dishes and fruit sal-
ads.
Other plants and flowers that are edible are not only
native to Florida, but can be found growing wild with-
out any gardening help. Sea grapes, Hopwood or horse
wood is coastal dune plant, whose sea grapes can be eat-


-. ne r lowers

en just as regular grapes are, wash then pop into mouth.
Red mulberry is found in low hammocks on the main-
land and the berries that are dark purple and juicy in
the late spring through the fall can be enjoyed right off
the vine when ripe. The yucca that grows on beaches,
sand dunes and on the mainland, has edible fruit, but it
is often bitter, even when ripe. Instead, the yucca flow-
ers can be used in salads, once the bitter center has been
removed or the blossoms can be batter dipped and fried.
Other plants may take some tending to, but the pay-
offs are well worth the wait. Apple blossoms,
chamomile, honeysuckle, and sweet woodruff all have
edible flowers that can be used to dress up tables, plates
and salads whenever they are in bloom. There are many
creative ways that edible plants and their blooms can
perk up and ordinary dish, and with so many that are
easy growers in Madison's climate, a little experimenta-
tion can go a long way
Always use caution, as not all flowers are edible and
some may actually be toxic to humans or pets. If the
plant is not known, do not use it for consumption until
identified, and if there is still a question, consult an ex-
pert. Do not use flowers from a floral shop as they may
have been sprayed with insecticides. A booklet from the
UF Extension Service can serve as a helpful guide for
identifying poisonous or irritating plants of Florida,
and a quick stop at the local nursery can be an educat-
ing experience for the whole family
Have fun this spring, adding a little something extra
to great weather get-togethers with blooms in those fam-
ily favorites. Enjoy spring with a zesty sprig of a flower
that adds color to a tabletop backdrop and blossoms
though out the meal.

In a Cooperative Extension effort of Auburn Univer-
sity, Clemson University, the University of Florida and
the University of Georgia, the 2007 Southeastern Hay
Contest received 255 entries from across the entire
Southeast. Ultimately, one Madison County grower,
Troy Platt, had several contributions that were judged
exceptional, receiving top honors in three separate cate-
gories.
Among several measures, the hay was graded ac-
cording to its Relative Forage Quality (RFQ). The Rela-
tive Forage Quality Index was developed by the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin to predict the fiber digestibilityy" and
animal intake of harvested crops. RFQ allows hay pro-
ducers to easily catagorize and price hay lots based on
quality It also allows cattle producers to purchase hay
based on its end use.
The bottom line is that the higher RFQ ratings, 155
and above, are considered "premium" grades and Troy
Platt had entries that scored well above that.number in
three separate categories. His hay literally scored at the
top of each of the three ranges. Although Platt intends
to use his crop as part of raising top grade cattle, the
quality of his hay crops is notable.
In the Mixed and Annual Grass Hay category, Platt
scored a RFQ of 211. In the Grass Baleage division, his
hay scored a 225 and his Legume Baleage entry scored
an incredible 256. Platt's additional entry in the latter
category came in second with an RFQ of 206 and, again,
each of the winners was at the top of their respective
ranges.
Anyone interested in participating in the 2008 event
need only call his or her local Extension Office. A rep-
resentative will come pull a forage sample and submit it
of their behalf.
