NFCC Eliminates Sports

... Trustees Approve President's Proposal


By Ted Ensminger
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Barring an unsuspected fi-
nancial windfall, a large gift
from a kind-hearted sports en-
thusiast, or perhaps Divine In-
tervention, the athletic pro-
grams at North Florida Com-
munity College are about to be-
come a thing of the past. It ap-
pears that NFCC will begin its
second half-century of service
by eliminating a tradition of
over 49 years of collegiate ath-
letic competition.
In what can only be called a
gut-wrenching decision-making
process, the NFCC District
Board of Trustees were given
no options other than to accept
the President's recommenda-
tion to eliminate all sports at
the college, effective the 2008-
2009 school term.
"Of all the things I've had to
do, this is by far the most
painful," said Morris Steen,
NFCC President. "Nobody, no-
body regrets more than me hav-
ing to take this action," Steen
continued. In an ironic twist, in
1960, Steen had actually played
on the college's inaugural
sports team.


Ministerial

Association

Sponsoring Bible

Reading At

Gazebo


The Madison County Min-
isterial Association, with as-
sistance from the Ministerial
Alliance, is sponsoring the
reading of the entire Bible at
the Gazebo, Four Freedoms
Park, beginning 6:30 p.m.,
April 21 through Friday morn-
ing, April 25, 2008 at 6 a.m.
Volunteers from through-
out the county and from the
various churches will be read-
ing in segments of about 15
minutes, beginning in Genesis
and reading through Revela-
tion, with some choosing seg-
ments of 30 minutes or more.
There will be a kickoff
challenge at 6:30 p.m. on Mon-
day afternoon. Rev. Bob Laid-
law, pastor of First United
Methodist Church will speak
and there will be special mu-
sic.
A special time of worship-
ful celebration is planned at
the end of the Bible reading on
Friday morning, April 25, 6:30
a.m. Rev. Charles Evans, pas-
tor of Mt. Zion A.M.E. Church,
is the special speaker and Rev.
Richard Quackenbush will be
singing.
The public is invited to
these events, as well as any
time during the reading of the
Word. The readers are encour-
aged to arrive early and re-
main to listen to others read.
Many have assisted in this
endeavor, but special thanks
are extended to Myra Valen-
tine and Jenny Andrews for
their help.
Participants may want to
bring/wear mosquito repel-
lant.
Robert Agner, president of
Madison County Ministerial
Association, can be reached
(850) 973-4160.


The vote to eliminate the
NFCC Athletic Program came
after Athletic Director Dr. Steve
Givens had presented a last
ditch presentation to save the
program. Givens pointed out
that in canceling the athletic
program at NFCC, the college
would be eliminating over 12
percent of the entire full time
student enrollment. Givens
also explained that the athletic
programs at NFCC contribute
over $300,000 to Madison Coun-
ty's economy
According to Amelia
Mulkey, NFCC Chief Financial
Officer, a budget notice from the
State of Florida that created a
shortfall for NFCC finances, to-
taling over $500,000, prompted
the recommendation to the Dis-
trict Board of Trustees. It is es-
timated that cutting the athlet-


ics programs will create a net
savings of about $360,000.
While the college is in the
throws of millions of dollars of
capital improvements, funds be-
ing used for these projects come
from the Public Education Capi-
tal Outlay program and are
specifically earmarked for capi-
tal improvements. Regretfully,
according to Mulkey, none of
these monies can be redirected
to other demands of the college.
NFCC currently fields three
intercollegiate teams, including
a baseball team that currently
ranks in the top 10 in the state.
Other teams affected include
Women's Fast Pitch Softball and
Women's Basketball. The deci-
sion of the Board will likely
cause the firings of Coach Jeff
Dabney and Coach Adrian
Dorsey The futures for head


coach Clyde Alexander ana as-
sistant coach Marcus Hawkins
were unclear. Dr. Steve Givens'
position appears to be secure.
The room grew silent as the
Board of Trustees struggled to
find a way to delay the vote un-
til further review could be ac-
complished. In the end, howev-
er, Mulkey instructed the Board
that the vote needed to be made
at that meeting in order to meet
new budget deadlines. A deject-
ed set of individuals reluctantly
accepted the athletic program's
fate and unanimously approved
the recommendation.
Steen was asked why this
decision had to be made now,
just weeks before his predeces-
sor will be chosen and his re-
sponse was, "This $590,000 mon-
key is squarely on my shoul-
ders."

Letters to the Editor are typed word for word, comma for comma, as sent to this newspaper.


Thank You, Michael Curtis
:: Last Friday Michael Curtis wrote an article about
mii and what I had done for the Town of Lee since I had
returned to what I call my adopted home town I was
born in Monticello, Illinois and use the motto "Northern,
born but Southern bred."
I wish to thank Michael for the nicely phrased arti-
cle (he really knows how to place his words) but I also
want him and everyone to know that what I have done
has not been work but pleasure and that I have had lots
of help. I remember all of those who gave as little as a
dollar as well as those who gave more to help get the first
Lee Day started I remember the first committee mem-
bers and all of their hard work (especially Debbie Kin-
sey and her two small children, "now, what else can we
do?") I remember Shorty Jones of Greenville.
I remember all those who were behind my efforts to
start the Lee Library, and Simon Kinsey allowing the
use of the very small old Sam Lamb Meat Market build-
ing. One of my most loyal patrons was Raymond Mercer.
And many Madison residents helped in many ways. I re-
member them all with fervent thanks.

A Big Impact On My Life

Sometimes, people have a great impact on your life
and they move on and you never see them again. The
people have probably forgotten who you are. You wonder
what has become of them and what they are doing.
Over 30 years ago, in the small town of Monticello, a
flamboyant man standing 5'5" tall and sporting long
hair, had an impact on my life. He impacted my life for
Jesus Christ and for that I'm grateful.
Ron Maddux was my fifth grade Social Studies
teacher. In his class, I saw my first video camera and
VCR. The things were not on the market for household
consumptiofi-rat.-thalfuin& M.rI"ddu '2Iodinxe^^His.
class and it was cool as he taped the students and we
watched ourselves oifntelevision. '
Not only was Mr. Maddux a school teacher, he was
also the preacher at the Assembly of God Church in
Monticello. My parents, who did not go to church often
back then, had gone to the Assembly of God when they
did. The pastor when they attended had been Gene
Thompson.
I discovered that Mr. Maddux was a preacher when
my mother told me that he preached at that church. One
day in the cafeteria at school, I spoke to Mr. Maddux
about the church. The next thing I know, he and another
man visited my house and invited me to church.
I remember that first day, I did not want to go to
church. I'll admit that I was frightened of the prospect.
It had been a few years since I had been to church and it
would be a strange world for me. When I had gone be-
fore, I had gone with my parents. That day, my father
had to work, so the church bus was coming by to pick me
up. Buses reminded me too much of school, which I hat-
ed at that time.
When I got to church, I discovered that it wasn't bad
at all. I don't remember much about the morning, until
near the end. Mr. Maddux was an entertaining preacher,
who reminded me of Jerry Clower with his jokes, but
when he got serious, he got serious. The serious part of
Mr. Maddux's sermon is what convicted me. I felt guilty
for a number of things I had done. The good news,. Mr.
Maddux said, was that there was forgiveness for our
sins. When the altar call was given, I went up front and,
believe me, it was hard doing that in front of all of my
friends there who would probably not think I was cool
anymore.
I wish that I could say that I have lived happily as a
Christian ever since that day, but I wouldn't want to lie.
Later on, I strayed but I came back and rededicated my
life to Jesus Christ. I wish, however, that I had not
missed so many years of church during my teen years
and twenties. There are so many things I could have
learned. There are still many things that I can learn.
Mr. Maddux moved away while I was still in middle
school. I found out what happened to him, when I was in
my thirties. He had become and is still head of the
Northern Asia missions for the Assemblies of God
Church.
I'm sure that he doesn't remember me, or the impact
that his preaching about Jesus Christ had on my life. Af-
ter all, he has spoken to thousands, maybe even millions
of others, and led them to Christ.
I saw Mr. Maddux on the Trinity Broadcasting Net-
work one evening, talking about his work in China and
other countries. Just the other night, I found a video of
him preaching on Itunes. He was preaching at a mission
conference at Calvary Temple in Irving, Texas. It was
the first chance I had to hear Ron Maddux bring the
Word of God since I was a pre-teen. I thank God for the
chance to hear him preach again.
Some people make an impact on the lives of others,
whom they may not even remember later on. Many
times, they don't even realize it. Ron Maddux, along
with my parents, helped sow the Word of God in my
soul.
I thank God for the people like my pastor and fellow
church members who continue to make an impact for
Jesus Christ in my life.


Cans For Kids Was A Success


Dear Editor:
Junior Auxiliary is excited to report the recy-
cling results from the "Cans 4 Kids" project, which
ends April 30th. With everyone's generous support,
JA recycled 4,500 lbs. of aluminum cans this past
year, which raised $2,700 to benefit local children
with urgent health-care needs.
Amazingly, recycling increased 41 percent over-
all in Madison County for 2007/2008 and increased
the County's revenue by $12,000,, according to the
Madison County Solid Waste Department. This is
exciting news because it truly means the people of
Madison County care not only about the children in
our community, they also understand the economic
value of conserving and preserving our natural re-
sources by voluntarily recycling. Recycling makes
"cent$" and saves taxpayers a lot of money.

Here are the Cans 4 Kids project results:

4,500 lbs. of aluminum cans were recycled
- equivalent to recycling 148,500 aluminum cans.
That equals more than eight cans per person in
Madison County!
Enough energy was conserved through re-
cycling to run a 100-watt light bulb for 594,000
hours (or for 68 years!) or run a TV for 445,500
hours (or for 51 years!).
Recycling conserved the same energy as
3,713 gallons of gasoline. That's enough to fill-
up a 20-gallon fuel tank 186 times!
4,500 lbs. of waste were diverted from the
regional landfill located in Madison County.
Note: It takes 80-100 years for one aluminum can to
break down.
Solid waste fees, paid by taxpayers, were
reduced because this waste was recycled and
not sent to the landfill.
The life of the regional landfill in
Greenville was extended because of that waste
reduction.
Natural resources and energy were con-
served because the need for virgin materials
was reduced. Note: Recycling one aluminum can
saves 95% of the energy it takes to create an alu-
minum can from bauxite ore, the virgin material.
There is no limit to the amount of times aluminum

.-Forty-five hundred pounds of aluminum
materials were returned within 60 days back
into circulation to be reused.



Dirty Dozen
This is in response to the last, "Question of the
Week", 4 April, 2008 Ms. Meserve un-doubtdly conducted
her interview of the Dirty Dozen, in the Parking Lot at
Miss Kitty's Long Horn Saloon:
Only one of the Dirty Dozen answered the question
about Madison County going "WET", with a concern for
the children. Mr. FUDD made it quite clear that he was
all for it as his tourist business would be greatly en-
hanced, if only people could get a glass of Wine. Anoth-
er person stated that "Everyone" goes out of the county
to buy alcohol. I guess that leaves me as a "Nobody".
One stated there would be less accidents on the Valdosta
Hwy, what about MORE accidents on Base St. Still an-
other stated that being Dry might be uncivilized.
About 6 months age I, too, thought that perhaps
"WET" might be a good idea, how-ever, after having a
heated conversation with Mr. FUDD over a week ago, I
am now thoroughly convinced that bringing Fire Water
into and around our Teenagers is NOT the right solu-
tion at this time. Perhaps after our NEW Hospital is up
and running, Madison County will have the facilities to
handle all the bloody mangled bodies as a result of this
deadly substance.
I might add that a lot of people come here because it
is DRY.
I confess

"Because"
Because you cared, you came to share
Beautiful flowers and words of prayer
Because you cared enough to do
Words of comfort and cards came too.
Because you cared we are not alone
Calls and visits reached us at home.
Because you cared we are grateful indeed
You've been a comfort to friends in need.
Because you cared we are praying too
For God's richest blessing for each of you.

VIEWPOINTS & OPINIONS RIME TheMadisonEnterprise-Recorder


Turnoff Week


Requires Action
There was a time when kids couldn't wait to get
home after school, change their clothes and get outside
to play Today, TV watching, video and computer games
are now the pass time for American youth. The Nation-
al Heart Lung and Blood Institute reports on average,
children ages 8 to 18 spend more than six hours each day
engaged in these passive activities for recreational pur-
poses. These habits translate into a sedentary lifestyle
that begins at an early age and can contribute to weight
gain and potential health problems.
Next week, April 21-27, is Turnoff Week, a great time
to start limiting recreational screen time and boosting
physical activity and healthier living. The NHLBI and
the Center for SCREEN TIME Awareness want all Amer-
icans to join in celebrating family, healthy living and an
exploration.of all that is going on around us as we focus
attention on reducing the impact of the screens in our
lives.
To help families make important lifestyle changes,
NHLBI's We Can! campaign offers sensible, guidance
and tips for parents to help them reduce screen time, but
also encourage physical activity and better nutrition
choices. Here are a few simple tips from NHLBI to help
your children reduce their screen time and increase
physical activity in order to maintain a healthy weight.
Know how much screen time and active time your fami-
ly is getting. You may not be aware of the time your fam-
ily spends in front of screens. For every minute spent in
front of a screen, it's less time that could be spent being
physically active.
Talk to your family Explain to your children that
it's important to sit less and move more to stay at a
healthy weight. They will feel more energized and have
a chance to practice outdoor skills like riding a bike or
shooting hoops.
Minimize the influence of TV at home. Put the TV
and computer in a central location in the house rather
than a child's room. This reduces isolated time and cre-
ates an atmosphere for family interaction.
Provide other options to screen time. Alternative
such as playing outside, learning a hobby or sport, or
spending time with family and friends provides an in-
teresting and enriched lifestyle for children as well as.
parents.
Set a good example. You need to be a good role mod-
el and also limit your screen time to no more than two
hours per day. If your kids see you following your own
rules, then they will be more likely to follow.
Make screen time, active time. When the TV is on, do
something active. Do an exercise routine, lift hand
weights, or do jumping jacks and leg lifts to be active
while the TV is on.
During Turnoff Week, make an effort to limit the
time you and your family spend in front of the TV and
computer screens. Take it a step further and use the
time for all of your family members to be more physi-
cally active for a healthier lifestyle. For more informa-
tion on nutrition anl physical activities, contact the

FI Investigating


Growing Internet Threat
Criminals who seize control of tens of thousands of
home and office computers through what are known as
"botnets" are a dramatically growing threat, Shawn
Henry, deputy assistant director of the FBI's Cyber Di-
vision.
Since last spring, the FBI has arrested 11 individuals
who allegedly infected and commandeered 1 million per-
sonal computers and turned them into robots that did
their bidding, Henry says.
While the FBI has been making inroads, the number
of such cyber crimes grows alarmingly each year, cost-
ing tens of billions of dollars. Consumers need to take
preventive measures to minimize the danger to their
computers.
Besides technical precautions like using antivirus
programs, spyware protection programs, and firewall
programs and keeping them updated, Henry advises
computer users to think of the Internet as they would a
dangerous neighborhood where their personal safety
may be threatened.
"If you receive a communication from somebody
you don't expect to hear from, and it's got an unusual at-
tachment, you probably shouldn't open it, even if it's
been scanned," Henry says. "You've just got to be more
aware than you would be normally."
A botnet short for robot network allows a crim-
inal to seize control of any number of computers by in-
troducing malicious programs like spyware, viruses,
worms, or trojan horses into each computer through its
Internet connection.
With a single command, the master of the computer
network can have each of the slave computers contact a
particular computer network, bringing it down because
of the sheer demand on its ports. That can cause a com-
pany to lose millions of dollars in business. If the target
is a police department or hospital, shutting down its
computer system can jeopardize public safety or health.
In addition, slave computers can be used to compro-
mise still more computers for the botnet or to engage in
phishing schemes, inducing people to give up their per-
sonal information in response to phony emails suppos-
edly sent by banks.
Once a computer is compromised, a criminal can re-
trieve any information from that computer. A computer
user may have no clue that his computer has been com-
promised. Or the victim may notice slower response
times or a cursor that is erratic.
Beginning last spring, the FBI decided to cluster an-
nouncements of key indictments of alleged botnet oper-
ators to.create more publicity The crackdown was called
Bot Roast I and II.
"We wanted to have a deterrent effect on people who
are using botnets to let them know that regardless of
where they reside in the world, we're looking for them,
because we're coordinating very closely with foreign
law enforcement," Henry says. "Also, it was important to
us to raise the public's awareness about the dangers of
botnets. It's importantfor computer users to understand
that they've got to take certain measures in their home.
They are the first line of defense."
Henry advises computer users to choose passwords
that have upper case and lower case letters as well as
numbers. Using symbols in a password is also a good
idea if allowed.
Passwords should be changed periodically While
ideally a different password should be used for each ac-
count, computer users need to be realistic. Writing down
all the passwords and keeping them in one place obvi-
ously is not a good idea, Henry points out.
If determined enough, sophisticated criminals can
penetrate any computer, Henry says.
"But taking the right precautions makes it more diffi-
cult," Henry says. "And the higher you can raise the bar,
the better off you are as a consumer."

free tests. The tests will be given at the Beltone Hearing Care Center listed below. Appointments are
preferred and can be made by calling the Madison office.
Everyone who has trouble hearing is welcome to have a test using the latest electronic equipment to

Madison and onto the campus of North
Florida Community College. Both runs
begin and end on the corner of Range
and Marion Streets. Ribbons and tro-
phies will be awarded winners in sever-
al age categories.

ing times of life-limiting
illnesses. The focus of
Covenant Hospice is to en-
able their patients to live
as fully and comfort-
ably as possible, to
provide dignified
palliative care, to
assist patient's
loved ones in
coping. with
end-of-life is-
sues includ-
ing the even-
tual death of
the patient
and to im-
prove care for
all patients at
the end of their
lives by example
and education.
Covenant exists in
the hope and belief that
through appropriate care,
education and the promo-
tion of a supportive com-
munity sensitive to the
needs of persons facing
the end of life, patients
and their loved ones may
be able to obtain physical,
mental and spiritual
preparation for the end of

newal.
At Covenant Hospice,
the belief is that life is not


about how one dies, but
rather, how one lives. As
an example, Taylor

book entitled, "Faces of
Life." It is a 96 page hard-
back book of inspired sto-
ries and photographs from


patients, families, staff
and volunteers that dis-

and positively impacting
other's lives.

many other ser-
vices they pro-
vide, Covenant
Hospice also
helps with be-
reavement
services and
support.
Since grief
is a normal,
natural re-
sponse after a
loved one's
death, Covenant

and loved ones
with dealing with
this grief for at least
one year following the pa-
tient's death to ensure the
families do not become
overwhelmed after their
loss. There are also chil-
dren's support services
geared especially for chil-
dren, and their unique
needs during this difficult
time that focus on the un-
certainties about death,


appropriate ways of ex-
pressing feelings, sharing
special moments andc
working to reinforce posi-
tive emotions.

Covenant's patient refer-
rals are made by physi-
cians, and more than 1,000
of them trust their pa-
tients to Covenant Hos-
pice's caring team of pro-
fessionals and volunteers.
However, anyone may re;
fer a patient to Covenant
Hospice including family
members, neighbors,
friends, or the patient
themselves.

Observing Confederate


History
One of Madison Coun-
ty's veterans of
the "War Between
the States" was
Oliver Perry
Smith.
Smith was the
great grandfather
of the speaker, Mr.
L.A. Bailey now of
Clearwater, who
spoke to the Madi-
son County Ge- OLIVER PEI
nealogy Society
Smith, an orphan, was
born about 1843. He was
raised in Thomas County,
Georgia, and joined the
Brooks Rifles in June, 1861.
He was mustered out,
and then joined Pickens
Bird's Monticello Company
K under Jim Finnigan in
1864.
Smith fought at Cold
Harbor, Virginia, where
Robert E. Lee's forces licked
U.S. Grant's Army, and
Grant's Army lost 15,000
men and Lee's forces suf-
fered casualties of 1,500.


Month
Smith was wounded in
the shoulder on
December 9, 1864,
and stayed at the
Florida Hospital
Ward in Rich-
mond, Virginia.
Smith re-
ceived his prison-
ers parole from
Appomattox
court house, Vir-
IRY SMITH ginia, at the
same time as
J.M. Slater of Pinetta re-
ceived his. (see enterprise
recorder Apr. 4, 2003).
Smith farmed and lived
in the Hamburg and Hick-
stown area of Madison the
rest of his life.
The program was
arranged by Stan McClain
of the Sons of Confederate
Veterans.
Next month's meeting
has scheduled Morris Steen,
president of North Florida
Community College, who
will speak on the 50th an-
niversary of the college.

Deadline for entry is

The Senate Criminal Justice
Committee today unanimously
approved legislation by Senator
Charlie Dean (R-Inverness) in-
creasing protections for victims
of dating violence.
Current law provides a set of
requirements for law enforcement
officers investigating domestic vi-
olence cases. Officers are re-
quired to help the victim obtain
medical treatment if required, ad-
vise the victim that domestic vio-
lence centers are available, in-
form the victim of legal rights
and remedies, and to provide oth-
er protections.
Senate Bill 1188 extends these


provisions to victims of dating vi-
olence, defined as "violence be-
tween individuals who have or
have had a continuing and signifi-
cant relationship of a romantic or
intimate nature." The bill also
permits law enforcement officers
to make an arrest without a war-
rant when there-is probable cause
to believe the person has commit-
ted an act of dating violence.
The bill is named after Tiffany
Barwick, 19, a West Port High
School graduate, and Michael
Ruschak, 22, of Oviedo. On Sep-
tember 24, the two University of
Central Florida students were
shot and killed at a home in


COMMITTEE
Oviedo. Barwick's ex-boyfriend,
Andrew Allred, is charged with
breaking into a home.where the
two were, and armed with a gun,;
shooting Barwick, Ruschak and
another man. Allred was later ar-:
rested for the two murders and
multiple other charges.
"Dating violence, like domes-
tic violence, is an appalling viola--
tion of the victim's safety and
trust," said Senator Dean. "This
legislation gives law enforcement
officers the authority to pursue.
offenders with the full force of the:
law, and it gives victims the pro-:
tection and information they need:
to recover in safety.'"

Blessed be His name! What a splendor service was to the
Lord this week. We began with Alicia Montpas joining our
church family and Christ's family through believer's baptism.
This was followed by Liane Wakefield blessing us with her per-
formance of "Prayer Warrior." Deacon of the week Bob
Earnest then said the offertory prayer, followed by the Chancel
Choir singing, "If My People Pray"
Pastor Ferrell's sermon.was from Luke 18:1 and Isaiah 62:6-
7, explaining how to be a prayer warrior and a watchman for
Christ. "It only takes breath to be a critic; it takes faith and
willingness to be a watchman for Christ." He then opened the
opportunity to the congregation to be part of our prayer chart.
The mission of the chart is to have someone praying every
minute of everyday and always have someone available to call
with new requests. Members of the congregation filled in
times they will be available to join the prayer chain and turned
them in at the end of the service. Volunteers from church
members are still needed to fulfill this mission.
April 25 and 26 will be Madison's Four Freedoms Festival!
Several church members will be participating with booths
or floats. Our prayers go out to everyone who will be a part of
this community festival. April 28 will be this year's VBS clin-
ic. It will be held at 7:00 p.m. at Pinetta First. What a blessing
this ministry is in the Lord's sight. Anyone participating in
this year's Children's Camp at Pickett Lake must register by
May 7. The cost is $75 per camper.
Congratulations to Lesley and Sid Bontrager on the birth
of their son, Landyn Troy, on April 3. May God bless their fam-
ily!
Madison First will be hosting our "Homecoming Celebra-
tion" on April 27. We encourage you to invite your friends and
family! There will be a covered dish dinner following morning
services. The 1898 sanctuary will be open on Saturday April 26
from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. There will also be a special offering taken
on Saturday and Sunday for the 1898 sanctuary/Willie Clare
Copeland Fund to help with needed maintenance to the build-
ing.

An art student peruses periods of Baroque architec-


ing it; and beauty, it should
delight people and raise
their spirits.
As art students, at
MCCS, Bridget Miller's
students learned how
buildings rely on the prin-
ciples of physics and how
different structures are
built accordingly. Studying
the world's greatest struc-
tures in relation to the his-
tory of human civilization
including historical build-
ings in the surrounding
area, the students com-
pared architects and
builders from different
historical time periods.
Also, after learning of the
many careers available in
the building industry with
programs available, each
student designed and built
their own building where
their final products are on
display in the main office
of the central school.
Offering students an
opportunity to experience
history and art through ar-
chitectural research and
related activities, MCFEE
provided the funds to pur-
chase books, videos,
posters and an architectur-


ture and beyond.

"Architecture is to make
us know and remember
who we are. "
Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe
Ancient architecture,
characterized by the ten-
sion between the divine
and mortal world marked
for cities a sacred place
containing a house for
gods, outside that of na-
ture and wilderness. Often
executed by priests or
rulers, architecture and
construction were accom-
panied by rituals intended
to join human activity
with continued divine
benediction. Today's archi-
tecture has taken on a
more functional role in hu-
manity, evolving out of the
dynamics between needs
and means into, as culture
developed, a craft.
On February 6, Madi-
son County Central School
(MCCS) students got a
chance to explore architec-
ture with a field trip that
introduced them to the
study of architecture itself
through science, social
studies, geography and
art.
According to the earli-
est written work on the
subject, Vitruvius, a Ro-
man architect, stated a
good building should satis-
fy three main principles:
durability, it should stand
up robustly and remain in
good condition; utility, it
should be useful and func-
tion well for the people us-


The structure of skyscrapers grows increasingly in-


mansion during their tour.
Thus culminated the ar-
chitecture unit with the
students visiting on tour
the three places of interest
they had studied in class:
Miller and her stu-
dent's wish to sincerely
thank the Madison County
Foundation of Excellence
for providing the opportu-
nity to experience history
and art through the archi-
tectural tour, Carol Beck;
Ronald Lumpkin; Maria
Greene and all of the par-
ent volunteers for their
support and help with this
very worthwhile project;
architect Bret Copeland
and FAMU architectural
student, Bart Haynes for
the use of their models
and drawings.
Just as historical civi-
lizations where often
known primarily through
their architectural
achievements, so also,
may today's memories be
preserved by the builders
of the future.

tour, the students saw and
discussed the Greek re-

ture, stopping first at the
Governor's Mansion in
Tallahassee, both a reposi-
tory of Florida history as
well as being home to the
Governor, where the cura-

From there the class
moved on to the Florida

ordinator of Student Re-

and Assistant Professor at
FAMU gave the class a tour.
Students viewed architec-
tural drawings and models,
and were shown a demon-
stration in the woodshop.

Garit Poire Wins Two Classes



In State Shooting Championship


By Michael Curtis.
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A rich hunting and outdoor sports
tradition have been a central part of the
Madison County landscape for centuries.
Along the way, it has even turned a few
enthusiasts into experts, as what begins
as an interest becomes something much,
much more. One of these success stories
now belongs to a legitimate up-and-comer
in shooting sports, Garit Poir6.
On April 6, Poir6, 16, of Madison, won
both the Sub-Junior and "D" Class in the
prestigious National Sporting Clay Asso-
ciation's Florida State Championship
held at Bradford Sportsmen's Farm in
Graham. With a score of 149 out of 200,
Poir6 exhibited a level of excellence at his
age that places him on par with the finest
shooters anywhere. In fact, several of his
supporters believe Poir6 is already in a
class by himself.
"Garit is a fine young man and an ex-
cellent shooter. I see him receiving schol-
arships and going on to do well at whatev-
er he sets his mind to in the sport. He is
from a great family and it's been a plea-
sure to work with him and watch him be-
come such a fine sportsman," explains
Wally Davis. Davis, who owns Madison
Farmer's Supply avidly supports Poire's
efforts and has worked with him on nu-

merous occasions as part of local Nation-
al Wild Turkey Federation activities.
Poir6 expressed appreciation for all
the people who have been instrumental in
his shooting development. Of course he
sent huge thanks to his parents, Geno and
Cindy Poir6, who own The Marketplace
and Madison Antiques Market and Interi-
ors on Range Avenue in Madison. Addi-
tional thanks went out to Alan Sowell of
Madison Sporting Goods and Pawn, Ken
Branham of WW Sporting Clays of Jack-
sonville, Pat Welch of Bradford Sports-
men's Farm Inc. of Graham, and John
Peek of Southwind Sporting Clays of
Lake Park, Ga.
"This is my first championship at this
level and I really look forward to climbing
up from here. I'"aWt to thank everyone
who has helped me and it's really a privi-
lege to represent Madison County," stated
Poir6.
Poir6's score was actually good
enough that it would have placed him sec-
ond in the "C" Class of the tournament,
so it's evident that his future targets are
right in his sights. The community joins
this reporter and all involved in wishing
Poire' continued success in all endeavors;

Georgia And Florida Ending


Senior Citizen License Exemption


SAn agreement be-
tween Florida and Geor-
gia that allows senior citi-
zens from either state to
hunt and fish in fresh wa-
ter without licenses in
both states is about to end.
SThe agreement, which
dates back to 1981, will
end on June 30.
Georgia officials an-


nounced in May 2007 that
economic realities have
rendered the reciprocal
agreement no longer fea-
sible for hunting, and it
will come off the books.
The nature of the agree-
ment requires that Flori-
da follow suit. The Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission


(FWC) voted
Wednesday to end
the reciprocal agree-
ment concerning
freshwater fishing,
as well. The agree-
ment never has ex-
empted nonresident
seniors from either
state from saltwater
fishing license re-

FWC Proposes Allowing

Commercial Mullet Harvest

On Weekends
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Qom-
mission (FWC) proposed a draft rule on Thursday that
would allow commercial fishers to harvest striped or
black mullet on weekends. A final public hearing on
this rule proposal will take place during the June 11-12
FWC meeting in Dania Beach.
The commercial harvest of mullet has been prohib-
ited on weekends during certain months of the year
since 1989 to help protect mullet when they spawn. A re-
cent FWC stock assessment indicates mullet popula-
tions are now healthy enough statewide to sustain com-
mercial mullet harvesting on weekends.

Taking Great


Strides In


Tallahassee
By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Great Strides will be taken on Saturday, April 19, in
Maclay Gardens State Park, Tallahassee to raise funds
and awareness of Cystic Fibrosis. This 10K walk, now at
its 10th anniversary, has year after year added tomor-
rows to the lives of those with cystic fibrosis by raising
funds to support the vital research and care programs of
the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Since that first walk took place in 1989, more than
$180 million has been raised for cystic fibrosis. With the
support of the CF Foundation, significant advances in
cystic fibrosis research and care have been possible
through funding, with nearly 90 cents out of every dol-
lar raised returning to cystic fibrosis medical research
and its care programs.
This genetic disease affects approximately 30,000
adults and children in the United States, causing life
threatening lung infections and serious digestive com-
plications. The support of the CF Foundation has helped
improve median survival ages, raising them from early
childhood in the 1950s to almost 37 today
To get involved, help fight CF and take part in the
Great Strides event, call (800) FIGHT CF or visit
www.cff.org. The Great Strides walk will take place in
Tallahassee at 9:00 am, and registration starts at 8:00
am. Please help support the CF Foundation and their pa-
tients and families by taking part in this walk and help
continue the tremendous progress that is being made in
fighting this disease.

CONT FROM PAGE 1B
Killed in the tornado
were Bob and Lavelle
McCullough, Walter
Olive, Jr. and De-
Armestor Pinesett.
Bob McCullough and
his wife resided in Hick-
ory Grove and would
have celebrated their an-
niversary a few days lat-
er. Bob McCullough, 64,
was the maintenance
man at North Florida Ju-
nior College, known on
campus as "Mr. Bob."
Lavelle McCullough, 62,
was always ready to help
others, according to fam-
ily members.
Oliver, 39, and Pine-
sett, 41, were farm work-
ers. They were killed
when the tornado blast-
ed their home on a farm
off Rocky Creek Road.
Little remained among
the debris of the small
frame house that the two
occupied on the Fraleigh
Tobacco Farm.
William McCoy, the
NFJC president at the
time, described the col-
lege campus as looking
like an "A-bomb" had hit
it. The auditorium,
which seated close to
1,000, laid in ruins, as did
the Hardee Chapel and
the nearby library.
Books from the li-
brary were found as far
northeast as Statenville,
Ga. Hymnals from the
chapel were found in
Lake Park, Ga.
At Jack McLeod's
farm, 60,000 week-old
chicks (two-thirds of
90,000 at the McLeod
farm) were the first ca-
sualties of the killer tor-
nadoes. He also lost a
hog shed near his six
chicken houses.
A mobile home was
destroyed on the McLeod
farm and damage was
done to the roof of a
home, occupied by Greg
and Debbie Leutner (the
sister of this reporter).
Morgan Leutner, this
reporter's niece who was
two-and-a-half at the
time, showed her grand-.
parents, uncle and aunt
the damage that had oc-
curred in her bedroom
because of the fierce tor-
nado.


No
journalist
could put a
cutline to
this picture
without
duluting
the ink
with tears.
Only God,
with his
infinite
love could
set this
type,
for He
saved
James
Rowe and
his wife
ahd many
others for
reason.


Joe Peavy,
Richard
Warren, and
Wes Kelley
Look on
as an
inmate pulls
from a tree
that has

ed to its j < ",;
shape. The
Warren
house, in
the
Sback-
ground,
stood as a
huge,
Beautiful re-
minder of
the elegant
lifestyle of,
the large
sourthern
farms.


Also destroyed in
Madison was the Gulf
Life and Tri-County
Medical building.
Locust Grove was


the next area hit hard by
the storm. James Rowe,
a Locust Grove resident,
said at the time, that he
was awake for probably
45 minutes before the
twister hit. 'He was lis-
tening to the thunder
and rain.
"I knew it was bad,"
he said. "All of a sudden
the noise got louder and
I called for Jean and told
her to get up and come
into the hallway"
James Rowe made it
to the hallway just as the
tornado hit home, but
Mrs. Rowe said she knew
she couldn't make it, be-
cause the house was al-
ready shaking by then,
so she'just lay on the
floor and held onto the


Watrs


bed.
James Rowe's back
was slightly injured
when he was hit by the-
hall door. He was trapped
in the hallway until it
was all over. Jean said
they started hollering
back and forth to each
other.
"When I realized
James was okay, I was
okay," she said at the
time. "I said, 'Lord,
thank you for letting us
live.'"
Jean Rowe had
scratches on the back of
her leg and had to have
several stitches to her
leg. Otherwise, she
would not have been.
hurt at all.
The Rowes lost
everything they owned,
because their house,
which was moved off its
foundation, was flat-
tened, but Jean Rowe
said it didn't matter, be-
cause they still had each
other.
The Rowes were sup-
posed to have left Madi-
son at 6 a.m. that morn-
ing in their motor home
for a six-month trip to
Nova Scotia, but the mo-
tor home, which was
parked next to their
home, was totaled in the
wreckage, along with
their cars.
"If the good Lord
hadn't been with us and
taken care of us, we
wouldn't have come
through this," James
Rowe said.
Across the street, the
tornado battered the J.D.
"Jake" Kaney home.
Kaney, a retired
math teacher at the col-


lege, told neighbors that
he had heard there was a
storm coming, but that
he had not been too wor-
ried. When he realized
the storm was getting
worse, he tried to get.to
the hallway, as the roof
came caving down. He
was hit on the back of
the head with stuff as it
started flying around. As
the wind and rain fell on
Kaney, he called to his
wife, Opal, and he finally
heard her. She had been
in the master bedroom,
but she had been sucked
through the sliding glass
doors of the home onto
the patio. A neighbor, Pat
O'Brian, had to help him
dig his wife out of the de-
bris.
Opal Kaney had to
stay in Madison County
Memorial Hospital for a
few days after the torna-
do.
When the dust had
settled around the Kaney
home, only the red brick
steps remained.
The Lord blessed the
Kaneys to live until years
later when they both


died of natural causes.
Across from the
Rowes, Freddy and Mary
Kay Smith suffered a to-
tal loss to their home,
too. Mary Kay was
trapped under her bed
with glass embedded in
her chest. Her husband
and son, Ricky, were not
seriously injured, al-
though Ricky crawled
out from under rubble in
his upstairs bedroom. He
said that he was able to
see because of the light-
ning that flashed.
Red and Delores
Swift, who lived behind
the Kaneys, and whose
home faced State Road
145, heard the tornado
coming and headed for
the basement. Red Swift
was standing looking out
the sliding glass door
when they heard a loud
explosion. The jolt
knocked Red back into
his bedroom as the tor-
nado shifted the whole
house off its foundation.
Delores was trapped
in the basement, but
made her way out as
soon as she could. The
whole upstairs of the
house was gone. The
Swifts quickly got out of
their rubble and went to
check on their neigh-
bors, helping others out
of their rubble as well.
Delores Swift told
this reporter, "I still have
trouble with bad weath-
er, especially at night. It
gets to me sometimes."
She added that she
and her husband found
out what they already
knew, and that was how
good the people of Madi-
son County truly are. She
said that they always
show up when someone
is in trouble.,
Others who suffered
damage to their homes
and businesses in the Lo-
cust Grove area and near
it included Mr. and Mrs.
Joe Mandziara (who had
to crawl out from under
walls and roof), Charles
Wells, and Madge Waller
(who lost six cows in the
tornado.)
Other homes de-
stroyed just beyond
Waller's were two rental
houses owned by Betty
Vann, which were rented
by Mr. and Mrs. Steve
Blanton and Geri Hicks.
The Blantons and their
two-year-old had to be
taken to the hospital.
When the twister hit,
Lavonne Blanton had
grabbed their daughter,
Stephanie, and had run
for the hallway, seeking
protection from the roar-
ing coming toward the
house.
"It sounded like a
train coming toward
you," Lavonne said, echo-
ing a statement made by
many at that time.
Steve told Lavonne to
lie down flat on the floor.
The house fell in on
them, but their lives
were spared, making
them another miracle in
the darkness and murki-
ness of the spring morn-
ing. As they were
trapped and confused,
Lavonne put the baby

under her and prayed
that the Lord would not
take them.
The Freddy Dixon
home, and the Betty
Vann house, the John Di-
amond home were all
damaged in the storm. A
car had to be uncovered
at the John Diamonds.
Ruth Taylor's home
took some damage and a
collection of debris.
Up the highway a lit-
tle bit, the mobile home
of Russell and Candi
Smith was hit. The bed-
room where their three
daughters Victoria,
Kim and Lori were
sleeping, was completely
ripped apart but the girls
were not hurt.
Up the road and
through the woods, a
huge pine tree crushed
the home of Lewis and
Joyce Williams. A pecan
tree fell on the home of
Mildred Agner and other
trees were uprooted in
the section of the county
where the' Agner family
lived.
Joyce Williams told
this reporter that she
said to her husband,
"Lewis, do you'hear all of
those airplanes?"
Lewis responded,
"That's not airplanes,
that's a tornado."
As the twister grew
closer, Joyce said that it
sounded more like a
train.
She said she got a
flashlight and started
hearing things hitting
the house. She got up
and got under the door,
facing in the hall and she
started feeling stuff hit-
ting her in the face.
At that point, a win-
dow broke and glass be-
gan flying. She cried out,
"God help us. Save us."
Joyce and Lewis's
son, J.L., had gotten up
to go to the bathroom.
While he was out of the
room, a tree fell on his
room. He was up, and
saw the curtains blowing
,and heard a tree falling,
so he hit the floor. It was
another miracle, be-
cause if he had been in
the bed, he could have
easily been killed.
Their daughter, Bev-
erly, and son-in-law,
Mark Joost, were in the
backroom and got
thrown around some.
Mark said he thought he
hit the ceiling.
"It sounded like a
freight train," Beverly
said. "You could hear the
wind, then a roaring,
and you could hear
crashing everywhere.
Trees were coming
down. I remember the
leaves coming down on
my face as I lay in the
bedroom. The door was
flung open."


The Gulf
Life and
Tri-County
Medical
building on
U.S. 90
was one of
the many
buildings
destroyed
in the pre-
dawn
storm.
Even
thought Tri-
County
Medicallost
all their
equipe-
ment, their
charts
were
saved.





Joyce told this re-
porter that the people of
Madison County showed
up to help out. People
brought food, clothing
and money to them.
"Everyone was so
good," Joyce said.
Speaking of the trees
that were knocked down
around the home, Joyce
said, "It was if someone
had taken some of the
county's largest pines
and laid them side by
side in the road."
The roaring of the
wind that evening kept
her from even hearing
the trees falling.
It took her a while to

get over being frightened
by the weather, but she
said that she had man-
aged to do that.
She told this re-
porter that when bad
weather had come her
way after the tornado,
she would pray the
Lord's Prayer over and
over.
"The Lord helped me
get over my fear," she
said.
The Church of the
Nazarene parsonage (a
mobile home was flat-
tened and the road lead-
ing to it was gone.
A pecan tree fell on
the home of Mildred Ag-
ner and other trees were
uprooted. Her uncle,
Alex, and Doug Agner,
were in the house with
her. Alex's truck was
also hit.
The canning house
and barn behind the
houses were destroyed.
Down the road, Sam
Agner, had a tin carport
that the wind took off.
The re:st of his house
was okay
Neighbors and friends
came with chain saws to
clear the roads for the vic-
tims.
The home of Mr. and
Mrs. Warren Young was
destroyed in the tornado,
but all five family mem-
bers survived. Their
daughter, Kim Young
Scarboro related the fol-
lowing information to
this reporter:
"Myself, two of my
older sisters and my par-
ents were there at the


time. My two older sis-
ters woke me up and the
windows were already
vibrating. The three of
us ran to our parents'
bedroom and woke them.
We tried to get into the
hallway outside my par-
ents' bedroom, but the


door slammed shut.
"One of my sisters
was behind the slammed
door in the hallway be-
cause she went back to
grab her flashlight and,
after the tornado passed,
she was trapped under
debris. Amazingly, she


was unhurt except for a
few minor scrapes and
bruises.
"The flashlight was
how we found her so
quickly she was flash-
ing it on and off to let us
know where she was.
The rest of us were
trapped in the bedroom
as the tornado passed
through.
"My parents quickly
told us to get on the bed
and they sheltered us as
best they could. My par-
ents' bedroom had two
doors to the outside. I re-
member watching the
door fly off and then the
roof begin to peel away.
At that point, the sand
began rushing in and I
had to close my eyes.
"Again, an amazing
thing happened the bed
headboard was thrust
into nails in the wall
which helped keep it
from moving too much (I
didn't know this until
later). After the tornado
passed, we were still on
the bed, but now, under
an open sky It was dark
and still raining and
very scary My father,
one of my sisters and
myself walked to the end
of our road to the high-
way and a passerby was
kind enough to take us to
my grandmother's
house, which was a few
miles away My mother
stayed with my sister,
who was trapped under
debris.
"It all happened real-
ly fast from start to fin-
ish. We didn't have much
time to decide what to

field about 150 feet apart
and 100 feet from the
frame of the mobile
home. There were only
splinters left of the
home. Their sink was
found halfway across the
field from their home.
About 150 yards from
the McCullough's de-
stroyed mobile home
was the home of Stanley
Williams and his two
sons, Brad and Corey
The three narrowly es-
caped death when their
home was destroyed.
Stanley suffered lac-
erations, Corey was un-
hurt and Brad was
blown from the house.
He was found in the
front yard.
Brad was taken to
Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital, where he was
treated for numerous
cuts and bruises.
Stanley's chicken
houses, where the par-
ents of this reporter
worked at the time, were
completely destroyed.
The only thing left stand-
ing was an egg cooler,
where the eggs that had
been picked up the day
before were housed.
Stanley's mother and
father, Mr. and Mrs. Otis
Williams, who lived be-
hind him on a hill, had
heard Stanley's home
"explode."
Mrs. Williams had
asked Mr. Williams what
all the noise was and he
had responded, "It's an
earthquake."
The Otis Williams'
home was also damaged,
mostly the back portion
of the house.
Mrs. Williams said
she worried about her
children in -mobile-
homes and never dreamt
that Stanley's brick
home would be hit the
worst.
Their daughter, Lin-
da Bass, husband, Billy
Joe, and sons Clint and
B.J., were not injured in
a mobile home down
from them. The family
stayed in the hallway of
the trailer.
Linda said at the
time that she remem-
bered a sound like a semi
coming in the bedroom.
The windows were open
and Linda ran over to
the windows. Something
seemed to be pulling at
her, as if it was going to
suck her out the window.
The wind got quiet and
she couldn't move.
The Basses called
over to their neighbor's
house next door, the Pat
Dempsey family.
Pat Dempsey and his
wife, Diane, and chil-
dren, D.J., Charlotte and
Mandy, were also mirac-
ulous survivors of the
storm.
D.J., Charlotte and
Mandy all began asking
their parents, "Are we
going to die?"
Pat and Diane told
the girls to pray. Pat had


already been thrown to
the floor as they headed
to the bathroom, and he
said for no reason at all,
the sliding glass door
miraculously opened, re-
lieving the intense pres-
sure that had built up in
the home.
Pat and Diane told
the girls to keep on pray-
ing, which they all did.
"We put our faith in
the Lord, and it was
over," Diane said.
Diane said that the
minute they all started
praying, everything got
quiet and they realized
that the Lord had taken
over and they were
saved.
"Thank God we're
alive and can witness
and tell people what God
did for us," Linda said at
the time.
Pat told this reporter
that, 20 years later, he

still jumps when the
wind blows.
When asked what the
tornado had sounded
like, Pat responded,
"Like a big locomotive
bearing down on you and
there's nothing you can
do but get low."
The tornado went on
to destroy trees and
graves in the Hickory
Grove cemetery, and
then made its way
through the woods and
out of Madison County.
Jim Stanley, who is
the current Emergency
Management Director
for Madison County, said
that the weather service
had determined that the
tornado at that time was
at least an F3 tornado.
"It would not have
done the damage that it
had done if it had not
been an F3," Stanley
said.
At the time, the Na-
tional Weather Service
had thought it was an F2,
with winds ranging from
100 to 150 miles per hour.
An F3 would place it at
150 miles per hour or
more.
After the storm,
everyone went into the
business of rescue and
clean-up. The American
Red Cross and the Salva-
tion Army stepped in to
assist.
Juan Botino, who
then lived at the corner
of Meeting and Bunker
Streets, told this re-
porter that he was at
home when the twister
made its way into Madi-
son. He and his wife,
Karen, and children,
Juan, and Brittany (who
.was a baby at the time)
made sure that their
children were safe.- Ten
minutes later, he got a
call from dispatcher
Marie Prince who told
him that a tornado had
hit Madison. He went to
work as an Emergency
Medical Technician
(EMT).
Botino said that at
that time, Madison

County only had two am-
bulances at the time. All
EMTs were called in.
The ones who did not
ride on the ambulance
rode in patrol cars and at-
tended to people at the
scene. The ambulances
were used to take people
to the hospital. At the
hospital, an ambulance
from neighboring Jeffer-
son County was sta-


tioned. The EMTs from
,Jefferson County took
those who needed to be
transported to Tallahas-
see over there.
According to reports
from Madison County
Memorial Hospital, they
treated 15 people injured
in the natural disaster.
Those treated includ-
ed Joe Mandziara,
Frances Mandziara,
Stephanie Blanton, Ricky


Smith, Freddy Smith,
Stanley Williams,
Mitchell May, Eugene
Flannegan, Jean Rowe
and James Rowe.
Steve Blanton and
Opal Kaney were treated
and admitted for observa-
tion. Mary Kay Smith
was transferred by ambu-
lance to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital with a
chest injury after glass
had become embedded in


her chest. Bradley
Williams was transferred
to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital with a back in-
jury James Rowe had to
be brought back to the
hospital, after being re-
leased, for more treat-
ment.
Work crews from
Wakulla County, Jeffer-
son County, Hamilton
County and Taylor Coun-
ty came to Madison to as-


sist in restoring power to
the county
Ninety percent of the
county's power was re-
stored by 10 a.m. that
morning. It had been out
since 5 a.m. or earlier.
Grace Presbyterian
Church on State Road 53
North was totaled in the
storm. The next day, how-
ever, Grace still held it's
weekly Wednesday night
prayer meeting. The


hymn chosen to begin the
service, as people sat un-
der the comfort of a calm,
peaceful spring evening
sky, was "Count Your
Many Blessings, Count
Them One by One."
Twenty years later,
the words of Pat
Dempsey still ring true as
he reflects on the event,
"If it's man-made, it can
be destroyed by a torna-
do."


Mr. and Mrs. Joe Mandziara stand in the area that was their front door and ex-
plain to their daughter, Darlene, of Jacksonville, just how they felt as the tornado News teams from every TV station, daily newspapers and area weeklies in the

tal with minor cuts after the tornado. Their home was located on State Road 145, newspaper reporter interviews Jean Rowe and looks over the back bedroom where
just across the road and northeast of the Locust Grove area. Jean and her husband, James, were sleeping just before the tornado hit. James
made it to the hallway, the only part left standing in the house, as seen in the cen-
ter of the photo. Mrs. Rowe never made it to the hall and related that she was on
the floor, holding on to their bed in the room. They both were taken to the hospital
with minor injuries and released.


Friends and relatives of the Lewis Williams family chipped in to help the fami-
ly get their house in the "Agner community" area, just off State Road 254 in Madi-
son County, back in shape after the tornado took off the roof and the back area of
the house. A huge pine crushed into the house.

Grace Presbyterian Church was hit by not one, but
two, tornadoes in 1988. The first occurred in April and
the second occurred in November. Undaunted, the
congregation rebuilt and still holds services at the
church on Highway 53 North.
