into the plot was
launched in early Feb-
ruary when agents
learned that Plymel
wanted the man killed
because of their mutual
involvement wi t the
same woman. FDLE re-
ported that a confiden-
tial informant told
agents that Plymel had
offered to pay him $1,000
to murder the man. Ply-
mel then allegedly gave
the man a down pay-

ment and a photograph
of the intended victim.
Plymel also pointed out
where the intended vic-
tim lived.
The intended victim
did not now about the
plot until he as in-
formed by the FDLE.
Plymel was charged
with solicitation to com-

convicted, he could face

Keep Madison County Dry

Arriving back at work
from my illness, I discov-
ered that the rumblings Ja
and grumblings of people
like Elmer Spear and oth-
ers who support Madison
County are still loud,
churning like a hungry or
upset stomach.
Many of those in favor
of Madison County selling alcoholic beverages argue
that Madison County will be able to lure new business
with a glass of wine or a shot of whiskey They say that
restaurants like Olive Garden would come to town. I
have a question: Has being wet helped Jefferson, Hamil-
ton or Taylor Counties lure in any restaurant like the
Olive Garden? No. Why? Probably because the counties
are too small.
Others argue that it would help bring in more
tourists. I don't think it would. Madison County needs to
concentrate on getting things here to bring in tourists.
Yogi Bear Campground and Four Freedoms Bed and
Breakfast are the only things now that will bring in
tourists. I can guarantee you, because I know Jimmy
and Latrelle Ragans and there will be no alcohol sold at
Yogi Bear. They don't even sell beer at their truck stops.
Also, they say that Madison County will be able to
lure big businesses in with alcohol. Again, I argue that's
not necessarily true. What kind of company would want
to come into a county where the workforce, who spent
the weekend consuming alcohol, will not be able to show
up for work on Monday because of hangovers.

Greene Publishing, Inc. offers our sincere apologies
to the Law Offices of Monica Taibl, and to anyone who
was confused by the Legal Advertisements that ran in
the Madison County Carrier on March 19, and March 26,
2008. The errors dealt with the dates in the ads in the
cases of Marva Davis, Margee Lee Groover McGee, Obe-
dia Jones and Marcus Hawkins, and Minnie P. Wilson.
We apologize for any inconvenience this error may
have caused.

Jefferson County, which
has been wet for years, has
b's Ladd rhad financial difficulties
the past few years. They
lacb Bembreven had to fire their coun-
ty manager at one point.
l i sOn the other hand,
Suwannee County, which
remains dry, has increased
in size and business in re-
cent years.
Many people, who have moved into Madison County
recently because it is much safer than the larger cities
in South Florida where they come from, are pushing the
wet county amendment. They need to realize that one of
the reasons Madison County is safer is because of being
a dry county
Personally, I am against Madison County becoming
wet for religious and personal reasons. I have personal-
ly seen extended family members ruin their lives be-
cause of alcohol consumption. As a Christian, I am
against people worshipping any God other than God,
the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. I am opposed to
the worship of the God, Bacchus (alcohol).
I encourage all of my readers not to sign a petition
to put the wet county amendment on the ballot. They
might tell you that if it gets on there and gets voted
down, it's done, but Madison County has heard that in
the past. The cost of the election, also, would be money
that Madison County doesn't need to spend.
Let's keep Madison County dry and safe for the chil-
dren of the county

Got news
straight from
the horse's mouth?

We Do.

The Madison County Carrier
& Madison Enterprise Recorder

Elmer Spears
"I would vote yes from a purely eco-
nomic standpoint. I'm in the tourist
business and that's one of the biggest
complaints I hear. When people go out
to dinner, they would like to get a glass
of wine with dinner."

Allen Wood
"We definitely need to be a wet county I
wish we already were. Everyone goes
out of the county to buy alcohol. People
like to have a drink after dinner and all
of that business is leaving. They just
spend their money in other counties
that are wet."

Ina Thompson
"I'm for it. Madison could use the rev-
enue. People are still buying it; they're
just spending their money out of town.
I think it would help bring in more

Tom Ashe
"Someone needs to put a stop to all of
the money and influx going to Valdosta,
Ga. If we kept that money here in Madi-
son, it might help with our property

Veronica Haynes
"I'm concerned that the teenagers would
be able to get a hold of it easier, that the
adults would still be buying it for them.
Not everybody is a parent. I'm just con-
cerned for Madison's well-being."

Alonzo Wilkerson
"I would love to see Madison become a
wet county I'm an ex-bartender, so I
don't see anything wrong with it. There
are still so many illegal ways to get alco-
hol here, we're just keeping the court-
houses here full. If we just legalized it
people wouldn't have to travel so far for
what they're already getting."

Kodak Moments -Part 1
A picture is worth a thousand words, so a thousand
pictures should write several books.
I have a few thousand pictures myself, some dating
back to 1950, and some earlier than that. I actually have
my great-grandparent's wedding photo from 1901, that's
over 100 years old itself.
'I love pictures, taking them, looking at them, dis-
playing them, and preserving them. I found myself in a
lot of pictures up until I was about 25 years old. After
that I tried to stay on the other side of the camera, as
pictures of me don't come out that well anymore. Since
then I have had the privilege of taking pictures of two
whole new generations of children, grandchildren, and
other family members.
My first camera was an Instamatic that took 126 car-
tridge film and had little square flash cubes for flash and
indoor pictures. As kids, I remember wasting the flash
bulbs even when we had no film. Next, we moved up to
Polaroid cameras; instant pictures, what a cool idea, (al-
though today the Polaroid pictures seem to be fading
away, and with no negatives). Then we moved on to
35mm cameras with built-in flashes and zoom lenses.
Alas, now we have Digital cameras, it's like all of
them rolled into one, and now we can even put the pic-
tures on the computer and send them anywhere in the
world, or print them out in the comfort of our own
homes on the spot. No negatives, but we can store them
on the computer or tiny little compact discs, (that was
easy) What next? Well, maybe I'll stay right here, I love
my digital camera and my computer. It should make it
easier to file, organize, print, display and enjoy my
memories for years to come.
I am keeping this week as a Part 1. Next week I am
keeping the subject open, and will continue with my
"Kodak Moments" as I am still thinking about this.
See You Next Week!!

Pam O'Toole
"My goodness, it would be nice for
tourists to be able to enjoy a glass of
wine with dinner. We're not stopping
them from drinking; they're just going
elsewhere. Most are taking their money
out of state. That tax money could be put
back into Madison's community"

Liz Granger
"Madison needs to go wet. That's why we
don't have any new businesses coming
in. There is nowhere for business meet-
ings, no place to go to entertain them for
meetings where they can relax, get a
glass of wine and talk."

Patrick O'Toole
"No one wants to turn Madison into an-
other Las Vegas, but can't we still be civ-

Jeff Jones
"Definitely for it. Not only would' it cut
down on all of the accidents from peo-
ple driving back and forth to Ga. but we
could use the money here that comes
from not just the sales, but the taxes."

William Davis
"I'd be all for it. It would help things
around here by creating new business,
and cut down on accidents on the Val-
dosta Hwy from people getting their
liquor and driving back from Ga."

Jacquelyn Hazzard
"I don't drink, myself, so it's not that im-
portant to me, but it seems as though it
would be a good thing. People wouldn't
have to travel as far and we could keep
the money here in Madison."

National Financial

Literacy Month
April is National Financial Literacy Month, a desig-
nation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives to
raise public awareness about the importance of finan-
cial education. In our society, we make financial deci-
sions every day that affect our long term financial sta-
bility. According to supporters of the resolution, finan-
cial literacy is an issue that should command our atten-
tion because many American are not adequately man-
aging their finances for education, healthcare and re-
National surveys show our savings rate is at an all
time low, while the average consumer has three or more
credit cards. To complicate the national picture, the
mortgage industry is currently in a crisis, foreclosures
are at an all time high. Just this week, a news report
identified Florida as one of several states with the high-
est foreclosure rates. All of these issues increase the
need for consumer knowledge of money and finance.
Education is the key to help move Americans toward
improved spending and savings habits and raise the lev-
el of money invested in retirement plans. It is never too
early to encourage long-term savings. According the Na-.
tional Endowment for Financial Education, surveys
show as few as ten hours of education can influence the
practices and financial knowledge of young people. Yet,
most students have no formal education in managing
All consumers, regardless of age, need to under-
stand decision making, spending, saving and wise cred-
it use to make decisions about how to manage money
Since parents are a child's first teacher, learning experi-
ences about money can be a part of your family's daily
activities. A regular allowance can be a helpful teaching
tool if you talk about plans for spending and saving.
Everyday lessons can be learned about money and
how to make decisions to get the most for your dollar.
Learning to spend and save can be a topic in family dis-
cussions. To learn more about teaching children how to
manage money contact the Madison County Extension

Sawyer combines a quiet charm with an intensity that
i's makes him a hit with old and young alike.
"I lost my dad to a smoking related illness when I
was 11, but I wouldn't have anticipated that it would be-
come my professional focus. The more I learned,
though, about the "loot" and "lunacy" the tobacco in-
dustry represents, the more I got involved. 700 pub-
lished commentaries later, I'm so happy to be bringing
the passion and education to Madison County"
Sawyer moved to Madison from Birmingham, Ala.,
where his wife is finishing the school year as an in-
structor and will be joining him when school is out. The
Sawyer's have three grown sons.

Madison Countians Have

"Stepped-Up" To Help One

Of Their Own.
Dear Editor:
Once again, the residents of Madison County have
stepped up to help one of their own. Earlier this year the
Annual Hot Chocolate sate, to benefit Great Strides, took
place under the leadership of Kelsey, Chloc and Abby
Started in 2005, this annual event has grown every
year and kicks off the North Florida Great Strides cam-
paigns that culminate in May. The proceeds from this ef-
fort help to fund research and care programs for those
living with cystic fibrosis. This year's event raised more
than $2,300.
In 1955, when the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was or-
ganized, most children born with CF did not live to en-
ter Kindergarten. Today thanks to research supported
by Great Strides and events like the Annual Hot Choco-
late Sale, the median age of those with CF is 37 years. Is
the past 25 years alone, the average age of people living
with CF has doubled. Currently CFF is funding research
that addresses the basic gene defect, not just the symp-
toms of CF It is believed that this research could stop
the cascading effects of cystic fibrosis and add decades
of life to many born with CE
We, at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, applaud the
efforts of the entire Reams family and wish to extend
our heartfelt thank you for the continued support of our
mission to end cystic fibrosis. Because of the generosity
of people like the residents of Madison County, CF pa-
tients are living longer, and have a better quality of life.

Break A Childl s Heart
Dear Editor:..
The law may let it go, but I can't, and if my father
were still alive he would have given you a d6se of your
own medicine, hopefully, for my troubled hurt, a double
I'm talking to a neighbor, the one who decided to
shoot the life out of a very loving dog that posed ab-
solutely no threat, nor showed any aggression, to any-
one. Instead, he just showed a puppy's love for a cool dip
and a splash on a warm day in a nearby pond.
Unfortunately for Phantom, a Blue Healer puppy, the
pond was in enemy territory...a neighbor's property.
And while I absolutely regret letting him get out unat-
tended, Phantom hadn't yet learned to read, neither the
No Trespassing sign, nor the ill will and obvious con-
tempt a neighbor must have for all.
Although I'm grown now, I loved Phantom with a
child's heart. You know the one where you run home
from school just to see him. My husband Ray and I
aren't looking for paybacks and we're not going to let the
hatred build but we do want people to know that Phan-
tom will be missed, especially by our German Sheppard
who had already built a great affection for Phantom.
It's horrifying when I close my eyes and imagine this
awful act. I feel a sickness down deep. I see this person
extending his gun barrel out toward a puppy who may
be even seen his killer, greeting him with a wag and a
perky bounce, right up until the point that this villain
decided to blow the life out of my puppy's chest like he
was a menacing rodent.
I appreciate Madison and I appreciate neighborly
love and I appreciate the need for safe and decent neigh-
borhoods, but I appreciate more the needs for safe and
decent neighbors whose hearts are made of the qualities
that made Madison great. I cry for Phantom and quiet-
ly, I hurt for the man whose darkness has consumed him
to the point of killing a sweet puppy
Well, maybe I can take heart knowing that daddy is
playing with Phantom until we can all frolic together
and my neighbor is definitely not invited.

With the Vision 2020 handoff, the MCDC is moving it
through the planning portal. Archambault has champi-
oned the planningprocess that Cherry, along with Coun-
ty Planner Jeanne Bass and Administrator Sherilyn
Pickles, delivered over the month-long visioning
process. And although it has been noted that additional
outreach will be required, no group has led better by ex-
ample, both in terms of participation and responsibility,
than the MCDC leadership, this according to multiple
resident and business participants.
"I hope everyone involved, especially the Vision 2020
committee members, will take the planning items to the
next level," Ed Meggs noted to the council. The entire
council agreed. Meggs, along with several others, has
been a central participant in both the Vision 2010 and Vi-
sion 2020 process.
During the April 1 meeting, two specific issues were
given practical consideration. The first was a review of
the recent proposal for the Madison County Memorial
Hospital (MCMH) to begin construction of its new hos-
pital facility by renovating three buildings previously
owned by Madison County Schools. Review and clarifi-
cation was provided to questions that had arisen re-
garding this initial building phase and its fit to be sup-
ported by county resources designated for a new hospi-
"We can do this work for $160 per square foot versus
the $300 per square foot that it would cost to build from
the ground up," Hospital Administrator David Aber-
crombie noted. Abercrombie offered an outline that was
accompanied by introductions to, and brief presenta-
tions from, key medical staff.
The discussion concluded with the council voting
unanimously to issue a resolution that would be read
the following morning before the Madison Board Of
County Commissioners. It declared strong support for
the $550 thousand dollar proposal. The council further
acknowledged that the project fit the intent for county
resources that have been accumulated for a new hospi-
tal. It was also determined that it provided immediate
assistance with critical physician recruiting that was
essential to realize the full medical and economic bene-
fits of the project.
The second presentation didn't receive the same con-
sensus, although the presenter, Elmer Spear, was at no
loss for either passion or documentation. Spear is seek-
ing to grow a delegation he stated now stands at 57 to-
ward an August petition to make Madison a wet county
The MCDC agenda items will likely grow signifi-
cantly over the next few months as planning is re-
viewed, solutions are proposed and the challenges of im-
plementation are defined. Additional announcements
of business development are anticipated to go along

The Madison County
Solid Waste and Recycling
Department continues to
take steps to prevent the
unnecessary use of the
critical and limited space
at the Madison County
Auxiliary Landfill in
Greenville. To promote lo-
cal businesses to assist in
this effort, the Madison
County Recycling Depart-
ment will make corrugate
holding containers avail-
able at the place of busi-
ness, at no cost.
The containers will be
placed so that they will not
interfere with business,
nor become an eyesore,
and will be serviced at
least once weekly, or as of-
ten as necessary based on
volume. The only criteria
for corrugate collection
are that it must not be con-
taminated with blood or
other food by products.
Those wanting more
information or to partici-
pate in this cost-free ser-
yice, please call (850) 973-
Here are a few facts il-
lustrating just how power-
ful this recycling effort
can become from simply
recycling one ton (2,000
pounds) of corrugate

The preceding infor-
mation was published by

Fred J. Rosenthal of the
Rosenthal Group. A re-
spected authority on this
subject, Rosenthal goes on
to say that "corrugate can
be recycled an average of
seven times before the
fibers become too short
and are filtered out as
sludge during the pulping
process. At the end of the.
life cycle though, the
sludge has one more use.
It can become daily cover
at landfills as opposed to
using soil."

pray and how, just as relationships on
Earth require communication, so does
ours with the Father. "Our Father which
art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy
kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth
as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our
daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as
we forgive our debtors, and lead us not
into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the kingdom, and the power,
and the glory forever. Amen." He also ex-

plained how important it is to forgive
others of their sins, just as we are forgiv-
en ours by our father.
This week was a joy in the Lord's
house. Melissa and Hank Stewart were
wed on Saturday and are now traveling
on their honeymoon to Gatlinburg, TN.
May the Lord bless their new life to-
gether with never ending happiness.
Wednesday the M-Pact youth group of
Madison First Baptist went to Jasper.
While there, they attended the Cross
the Line concert featuring bands such as,
KJ-52, Britt Nicole, Disciple, and Super-
chick. The concert began at 7 p.m. and
ended at about 11 p.m.
The concert was held at the old
Jasper High School auditorium. The
room was packed with youth and adults
fellowshipping and worshiping the Lord.

Sunday night there was no AWANA how-
ever there was family night, there were
covered dishes brought from church
members for all to enjoy, followed by fel-
lowshipping with friends.
The youth also met at 7 p.m. after
family night ended.
This week was Spring Break for sev-
eral Madison schools. Our prayer is that
everyone had a blessed and safe time on
their break. Saturday, April 5, is Lee Day
The parade starts at 10 a.m., with fes-
tivities lasting throughout the day Sever-
al of our church members will be partic-
ipating in this celebration, all are wel-
come to come out and show your sup-
port. Saturday will also be a church wide
clean-up. All church members are asked
to come and help. The cleaning will be-
gin at 9 a.m. Pastor Ferrell requested

that some men come and help him dur-
ing this cleanup, there are some special
jobs that you will be needed for.
Our prayers go out to all the men and
women serving our beautiful country in
the war, as well as their families that are
here at home. Also, we would like to say
a special prayer for everyone that is ill
around Madison County, there are so
Remember, the Lord is always with
you. You can talk to him when you can't
talk to anyone else. He will never turn
his back on you. He will stand firm for
you as long as you stand firm for him.
Never let the troubles of this Earth
keep you from celebrating the life he has
blessed you with, for we are all blessed
by him with every breath we take. You
never know when it could be your last.

A Business-Community (ABC)

School Program Becomes Official

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison County School Dis-
trict has formed a committee to eval-
uate proposals for the "A Business-
Community (ABC) School Program."
An ABC school is a public school that
offers instruction to students from
Kindergarten through third grade or
any single or multiple grade levels
within this range.
First priority for admission of
students to an ABC school shall be

given to the children of the owners
and employees of the host business.
If additional capacity remains after
children of the owners and employ-
ees of the host business are admitted,
the host business may designate oth-
er neighboring businesses whose
owners or employees may also par-
ticipate to generate a reasonable
number of students for the schools.
The school district is responsible
for providing the appropriate in-
structional support, administrative

staff, teachers, textbooks, materials,
supplies, and curriculum. Parents
are responsible for providing trans-
portation to and from the school for
their children.
Currently no business in Madi-
son County has the size to qualify for
the program. For more details about
the ABC School Program, please con-
tact Dr. Cheryl S. James at 973-5022.

time, hope their game is off, otherwise,

they are going to come at you hard. They
are one of those teams, with which if
you're going to get anything, you have to
take it."
The loss drops the Lady Warriors to
4-7 on the season. "This is the worse sea-
son we've had in five years, and the first
time we haven't had more wins than loss-
es," said Brown. "But with two games re-

come out of it with an equal amount of
wins and losses."

Oak And Ivy And Sumac,

Oh My!

By Tyr'ra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
As the spring air warms the face and flowerbeds
begin to bloom, Madison residents are starting to
emerge from their wintry wonderlands to frolic in
the sunshine. Blossoming along with the season's
flowery foliage however, are some stealthy sap pro-
ducers that can have unwary victims scratching up a
rashy storm before the day is done. Avoiding contact
with these three-leafed causes of allergic reactions
will not only make the sunny months more pleasant,
but also eliminate the need for calamine lotion, thus
saving Madison residents from becoming a pink-pol-
ka-dotted population by May Learn to identify these
poison weeds and play freely in the outdoors this
Poison ivy, oak and sumac grow in almost every
state across the US. These nasty little weeds are the
most common causes of allergic reactions in the na-
tion. Each year 10 to 50 million Americans who come
in contact with them develop a rash from the urushi-
ol oil these plants produce. There are three ways con-
tact with this itchy oil can occur.
Direct contact occurs by touching the sap of the
toxic plant, and once it gets on the skin it begins to
penetrate within minutes. A reaction will usually
show within 12 to 48 hours. Severe itching, redness
and swelling will then be followed by blisters. A rash
is often seen in streaks and lines where the skin came

in contact with the plant. The blisters that form be-
come crusted and can take 10 days or longer to heal.
Indirect contact may also occur by touching
something on which the urushiol is present. The oil
can stick to garden tools, sports equipment, shoes or
any object that has come in contact with the plant, in-
cluding the fur on a pet. Simply touching them can
cause a reaction in a susceptible person. The urushi-
ol that is rubbed off of the plants can remain potent
on other objects for years if not washed off, especial-
ly in a dry environment where it can last decades.
Airborne contact occurs by burning the poiso-
nous plants, which releases the urushiol particles
into the air. Nearly one-third of the forestry workers
and firefighters who battle fires in California, Ore-

gon and Washington where poison oak is especially
common, develop rashes or lung irritations from con-
tact with smoke containing urushiol.
The preventive measures, treatments and reac-
tions to all three poison plants are the same. Though
avoiding direct contact reduces the risk, it is not
guaranteed and the sooner a person is aware of expo-
sure the greater the chance of avoiding a reaction. If
exposed, it is safer to remain outdoors during the
cleansing process to avoid the spread of the oil.
First, cleanse the skin with generous amounts of
rubbing alcohol. Then rinse with water. Do not re-
turn to the woods or yard that day as alcohol removes
the skins defenses and a second exposure will set in
twice as quickly. After these steps are taken, it is safe
to take a regular shower with soap and water. Do not
use soap prior to these first to steps as the soap tends
to pick up urushiol from the surface of the skin and
moves it around, causing a reaction on previously
unexposed areas. Finally, any clothes, shoes or tools
that may have come in contact with the plant should
be thoroughly cleaned to avoid secondary exposure.
So, remember Madison County residents, poiso-
nous plants like ivy oak and sumac love the warm
weather months just as much as hikers, gardeners
and outdoor souls. "Leaflets of three, let them be,"
and have a safe and happy spring.

Cave Divers Receive Springs Protection Financial

jDport From Nestle Waters of North America Grant

The Florida Wildlife Federation, through a grant
from Nestle Waters of North America, has awarded
$5,000 to the Woodville Karst Plain Project (WKPP) to
support its outstanding efforts to protect Florida's
springs. In thanking Nestle Waters of North America
for their financial support, Casey McKinlay, Project Di-
rector of WKPP, stated "WKPP will put this support to-
wards our growing investment to safely and effectively
explore the caves systems within the Woodville Karst
Plain including Wakulla Springs while at the same time
supporting research and educational efforts that fur-
ther the understanding and protection of these incredi-
ble and unique natural and cultural resources."
"The Wakulla-Leon Sinks cave system is one of the
largest underwater cave systems in the world, and if it

were not water filled, it would surely be a National
Park," said McKinlay referring to the largest of several
underwater cave systems south of Tallahassee. Recent-
ly the dive team, consisting of 75 volunteer cave divers

from around the world, discovered and confirmed the
physical connection between the Leon Sinks and Wakul-
la Cave Systems and, in doing so, established the 4th
longest underwater cave system in the world. WKPP
divers spent 10 hours at depths over 300 feet and 26
hours total on the big dive leading up to linking the
Leon Sinks and Wakulla Springs cave systems.
In their seventeen years of work, WKPP divers have
explored 28 miles of underwater caves in Florida's Big
Bend region. They have been instrumental in support-
ing groundwater dye trace studies and installing hy-
draulic meters essential to mapping the flow of water to
Wakulla Springs. Their work has been featured on PBS,
NBC, Discovery Channel, Learning Channel and by Na-
tional Geographic.
The Florida Wildlife Federation was pleased to
name the Woodville Karst Plain Project as the recipient
of the monetary award from Nestle Waters of North
America and as the recipient of FWF's Annual Springs
Protection Award for 2008.
