BOCC Approves

Genealogist

Spear's Request

For Funding
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
During the Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners (BOCC)
meeting on April 16, Elmer
Spear came before the board to
review and request an over-
ride to a recommendation by
the Tourist Development
Council (TDC) to limit Spear's
recent request for $6,500 in
funding support for an upcom-
ing conference to $2,000.
When Spear introduced de-
tails of the event, as well as his
opposition to the TDC policy
limits at last month's meeting
of the BOCC, he was asked to
return to the TDC for clarifica-
tion and formal recommenda-
tion. Commissioner Ricky
Henderson, who serves as the
BOCC liaison to the TDC,
briefly explained the $2,000
limit and why he felt Spear
shouldn't receive more.
A few month's ago, the
BOCC decided to take a differ-
ent direction than the TDC
recommended when the TDC
suggested the BOCC terminate
their agreement with Original
Florida, a service provided
through the Regional Plan-
ning Council. Officially, the
TDC officially makes recom-
mendations only So although
the flavor of the favor was dif-
ferent in this instance, the out-
come was the same, which was
not to accept the TDC recom-
mendation. Instead the BOCC
dug through both budget and
statute en route to 4-1 approval

Attorney General Bill McCol-

22, that the owner and operator of
a Madison County assisted living
facility was arrested and charged
with multiple criminal charges,
including exploitation of an elder-
ly person, grand theft, forgery and
identity theft.
Authorities with the Attorney
General's Medicaid Fraud Control
Unit and the Madison County
Sheriff's Office arrested Charles
Troy Hendry, 47, who owns and


operates Hughey Memorial Care
Center in Madison County.
Investigators with the Medic-
aid Fraud Control Unit began in-
vestigating Hendry in March after
receiving information from the
Madison County Sheriff's Office
about the possible exploitation of
an elderly person.
The investigation revealed
that Hendry used his access to at
least one resident's personal iden-
tification information in order to
make numerous purchases and


obtain services for himself or
someone other than the victim.
The victim was a 76-year old
resident of Hughey Memorial
Care Center located in Madison,
Florida. With the information he
obtained, Hendry forged the vic-
tim's name on two credit card
cash advance checks totaling
$5,500 and fraudulently applied
for and opened two additional
(credit cards in the victim's name,

Losing The NFCC Athletic Program Is Like



Taking A Pill One Just Can't Swallow


By Ted Ensminger
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Either I'm crying over spilt milk or I'm venting. Per-
haps I just can't believe what I am witnessing in a city I
love with all my heart and on a campus that I can no
longer identify with. The NFCC of today is but a shadow
of what it was when I attended the school in the early 70s.
The energy, the spirit, the optimism, the morale, the ex-
citement of the students and faculty, seems from the sur-
face to have diminished. And while there are those who
may say it has never been better, I'm here to tell you, it
may never have been worse!
Years ago, someone gave me a painting of an egret
swallowing a frog. The frog was obviously intent on sur-
vival so, just before heading down the egret's throat, the
frog stuck his arms out and got the egret in a strangle
hold around its neck. The caption to the painting, which
is in my office, is
"Never give
up!" I believe
in this state-
ment.
This past
Saturday was
an inspiring
day for me.;i
caught up' on
some study-
ing and I


Dasenall
game. I say
"what some
believe," be.-
cause I just
don't believe
it. And
though it may
be true, I will
still neve The NFCC Sentins provethat
still never be to defeat Chipola 12 to 11 In the last
lieve it.
My day
started out catching a few minutes of the movie, We Are
Marshall. I was struck by what was being said, so quick-
ly I hit the record button to be able to quote the movie in
this column. By the time I started watching the program,
the Marshall University plane had already crashed,
killing all on board including the Marshall football team.
After the expected tragic reactions from the community,
the administration of the university was faced with the
decision of whether or not to continue the program.
Where this narrative begins, Dr Dedmon, who is the
temporary president of the university, is explaining a dif-
ficult decision to the few surviving members of the foot-
ball team. Nate Ruffin, a senior defensive player that was
injured and was not on the airplane that crashed, re-
sponds to Dr. Dedmon:
Dr Dedmon: All your scholarships will still be honored.
Boys, its important that we take a collective breath as a
town and figure out the proper course of action.
Nate Ruffin: And you think the proper course of action
is ending the program!!
Dr Dedmon: I didn't say we were going to end the pro-
gram, I said we were going to suspend it. Look, under the
best of circumstances it takes years to build a team, and
well, these are not the best of circumstances. The NC 2A
will not let freshmen play and they are the only players we
have, besides you. And when we do bring the program
back, we want to make sure we're able to do it right.
Nate Ruffin: If? That's what you mean, right? If they
bring the program back? (Long pause............)
Nate Ruffin: This ain't right, Dr Dedmon! It ain't fair!!!
The similarities in this story to those of the current
NFCC Athletics' suspension are uncanny Dr. Dedmon
was the interim president at the university; Morris Steen
has just weeks left. Both administrations told the athletes
that their scholarships would be honored. Both adminis-
trations have referred to the canceling of the programs
as "suspended." A difference to note is that Dr. Dedmon
indicated that the "town" was involved in figuring out
"the course of proper action."
Of course, the primary difference is, against all odds,
Marshall University did what it took to keep the program
going. NFCC, at least so far, has not. In a perfect world, I
see the end of this drama in our community coming to a
successful closure, the athletic programs are miracu-
lously saved and we all gather downtown on the court-
house lawn shouting "WE ARE MADISON! WE ARE
MADISON!!"
Do we own that passion?
Moments later, I found myself surfing the TV chan-
nels once again, still engaged with the thoughts of NFCC
Athletics. I stopped at a movie I'd seen several times, and
had enjoyed.
Mr Holland's Opus is an interesting drama about a
music instructor that, at the end of his teaching career at
a large high school, is about to be fired because of "fi-
nancial difficulties," Sound familiar? In this case howev-
er, the powers that be randomly select the elimination of
music, drama and art.
The story picks up where Mr. Holland is blasting his
school's principal (Mr. Gene Walters) for letting the situ-


ation get to the point where programs need to be cut at
all, and then moves to a scene where he is trying to de-
fend what he teaches to the School Board, whose chair-
man, (Michael), had at one time been one of Mr. Hol-
land's students:
Mr. Walters: I care about these kids just as much as you
do and if I'mforced to choose between Mozart and reading
and writing and long division, I choose long division!!
Mr Holland: Well, I guess you can cut the arts as much
as you want to Gene, sooner or later; these kids aren't going
to have anything to read or write about!! (The scene
changes to the Board meeting)
Mr Holland: No! No, do not misunderstand me! I am not
talking about saving my job! I am talking about the edu-
cation that students once got at Kennedy High versus the
education that you people are willing to give these kids to-
day!


Michael: We have been going over and over this Mr Hol-
land; we've done all we can.
Mr Holland: Then do it over again! That's what I used
to tell you when you were my student, Michael, and it
served you pretty well then.
Michael: Well, that was a different time, Mr Holland.
Mr Holland: I don't think the time was that different! I
think that more was expected of us! I think the big differ-
ence is how little you people care and how lazy you've be-
come!
Michael: I resent your tone, Mr Holland, and I don't
think you have any real appreciation for our financial
problems!
Mr Holland: Aw, come on, Michael! You know that the
big problem here is that you are willing to create a genera-
tion of children who will not have the ability to think, or
create, or listen!!.
Michael: Mr Holland! As I've said, we've done the best
we can!
Mr Holland: Your best is not good enough!!!! (Mr Hol-
land stands, and exits the Board meeting.)
See any similarities? Of course you do. In fact, for
those who instruct at NFCC, the axe could have just as
easily fallen on the arts as it did on athletics. Who knows,
maybe the arts will be next! The real trouble in both of
these stories, whether fact or fiction, as well as the trou-
ble in the decision making process here at home, is that
nothing that is taught on a junior college campus is at
any measure readily expendable! If we could live without
it, why was it started in the first place? Do we not believe
that we have students with the need to excel in athletics
just as we have students with the need to excel in the hu-
manities? Is any vocation or major not important? Can
we carte blanche decide which is more important than
the other?
I've heard Morris Steen say that if we don't do away
with the athletics program, then maybe we can do away
with Mathematics and English, or maybe Science or His-
tory
Please understand my point. We cannot and should
not do away with any of the programs that short-change
the real reason that NFCC exist: THE STUDENTS!!!!!!
Tough decisions need to be made, but the one that has
been made is unacceptable. Who in the world came up
with this short cut, deliberate way of avoiding doing the
right thing?
When a gas station owner needs to cut expenses, he
doesn't cut customers! When a hospital needs to cut ex-
penses, it doesn't cut patients! When NFCC needs to re-
duce overhead, why in the world would anyone think that
they should cut students, especially scholarship athlete
students that represent the cream of the crop for exam-
ple setters on campus?
The decision of the District Board of Trustees had a
direct bearing on many young souls already on campus,
and those who were excited about coming here this fall.
Can we even fathom the excitement of a youngster when
he tells his friends that he received an athletic scholar-
ship to NFCC, and the embarrassing, nearly unbearable
load of having to tell his friends that the school that


thought he was good enough to play, was not good enough
to keep the program going!!! What does that family do
now? Did NFCC not make a commitment? Have they not
made a commitment to the freshmen that play now? Af-
ter nearly half a century, NFCC Athletics is about to be-
come another soaring example that shows we just don't
have what it takes here in beautiful Madison County
There are just about as many ways of raising money
as there are of spending it, if the person or the entity re-
sponsible for raising it has the will to do so. I submit, as
my personal opinion, that the decision tokill the athlet-
ics programs at NFCC should never have happened. I fur-
ther submit, that there should still be a chance of saving
at least some of the programs.
And the fact that Lake City Community College has
decided to "suspend" their athletic programs in no way
justifies or rationalizes North Florida doing the same!
There are far more
successful com-
munity college
athletic pro-
grams than there
are failing ones!
Thank God!!

And I
don't care where
the blame lies. Blame it on the President, the Governor,
the State Legislators, terrorists, our local politicians, gas
prices, college management, or the janitor. I don't care
who broke it, I care about who is going to fix it!
The new president of NFCC, be that man or woman,
could go from zero to hero their first day in office by an-
nouncing, "I have a plan to save NFCC Athletics!"
And with this financial emergency looming, was the
suspension of the athletic program the course of least re-
sistance? Were cutting staff and administration salaries
discussed? Was fielding a baseball team of just com-
muter students discussed in order to reduce overhead of
scholarships and to keep the program alive until funding
sources could be secured? Was there any attempt to so-
licit sponsorships from the businesses in Valdosta, Ga. or
Tallahassee or evendJacksonville or from throughout the
Big Bend? And please, don't reference attempts made
"several years ago." Does the school have any athletic
boosters? If not, then why? Where is the advertising that
is ALWAYS found on the outfield wall of a baseball field?
And who contacted the alumni of this college asking for
their help and support? And what about the Florida Sports
Foundation? Anybody send up a red flag to the official
sports commission for the State of Florida? How about
those big cigarette dollars we've heard the state got? Are
they available? Or maybe even Lottery money For crying
out loud, has anybody asked for anything from anybody?
Do we really think parents in the future are going to let
their athlete sons and daughters come to a schQol that has
already proven that it has the capacity to kill the sports
program at the drop of a budget? I've already heard par-
ents say that their children wanted to attend NFCC next
year with the hopes of participating in the sports pro-
gram.
If you think full-time enrollment now is low, wait till
you see what happens next!
And, by the way, at Saturday's game, NFCC was down
11 to 7to number two-ranked Chipola at the top of the 7th
inning. If NFCC won, their season was over, finishing
third in the conference. If they lost, there would be anoth-
er game played another day At the top of the ninth, NFCC
was behind 11 to 8. At the bottom of the 9th, an errant
pitch from Chipola allowed number 8 of the NFCC Sen-
tinels to steal home. The Sentinels won the game 12 to 11.
The game that may be their last ever! Hats off to the coach-
es and these young athletes, because when it surely would
have been the easiest to give up, they kept trying to win.
These young men still have the heart it takes to fight to
win until the very end.
What can these young people teach all of us? It's a true
crying shame that those who make the decisions for the
campus, meaning adults who have the responsibility of
doing what is best for the school, have lost the desire to
fight until the last pitch is thrown, until the last buzzer
sounds.
I feel that there is smoke. And usually where there is
smoke, there is fire! .
There is nothing good that can come from this deci-
sion. How can we expect to graduate well-rounded stu-
dents in an abbreviated collegiate environment?

You're In Charge Of


Your Money


When it
comes to o
money, yousonCo
are in the
driver's seat Exn Ser
and it is up in
to you to i
manage all
of your re-
sources.
Where does you money go? Do you let
money slip out of your hands or do you
have a handle on it? During this last
week of Financial Literacy Month, work
on learning to use your money and other
resources to achieve your goals and get
from where you are to where you want to
be.
If you want better control your mon-
ey, first take a look at where you are fi-
nancially and pay attention to the num-
ber of times you take out your wallet and
spend money. Distinguish between
"needs and wants," plan your spending
and have a purpose for your money.
Know when to use cash, checks or credit
and decide upon the best person to keep
the family's books and to pay bills.
Save up to 10% of your take home pay
by making and following a spending plan
that covers your fixed expenses, flexible
expenses, and funds for emergencies and
future goals. Many consumers find they
can shave off 20 to 30% of their shopping
dollars by planning with a list, and doing
comparative shopping.
Stretch your transportation dollars
by *practicing good driving methods aid
taking care of your automobile. Get reg-
ular maintenance and service checkups.
Use your care owner's manual to plan
maintenance. Make your car last longer
by taking care of it and you will delay the
need for purchasing a newer vehicle. If
you have a gas guzzler, you may find it
beneficial in the long run to trade it in on
a vehicle with better gas mileage.
Compare insurance rates with differ-
ent companies before making a choice of
policies. Cut insurance cost by shopping


for dis-
counts, in-
creasing de-
avce. U ductibles and
vice practicing
good habits.
You can
spend less by
taking care
of what you
have. Use care recycle, remodel and
recreate. Save 20 to 30% of your food
costs by eliminating waste. The, average
family wastes about 20 % of food through
improper storage, buying too much
when they eat out or not using leftovers.
Manage credit wisely. This may take
an extreme change in spending habits
for some people. The best way to use a
credit card is to pay it off every month.
Paying a card in full keeps the interest
from being added each month: If you
can't pay off the balance, try to pay more
than the minimum fee and work to pay it
off. You aren't getting ahead with con-
tinuous credit card debt..
Check your spending habits, consid-
er waste and self-indulgence. Try this
exercise for one week, whenever you
take your wallet out, write down how
much you spent. (Call the Extension'of-
fice and I can give you a chart to help you
track spending.) You may be shocked at
the amount of money that leaves your
pocket each week. We call these small
amounts spending leaks, and they can
add up to large amounts over time. Re-
member, a dollar a day saved is $365 a
year. Learn to substitute other resources
for money, try to borrow, share, switch,
substitute, simplify and conserve goods
and services.
Having control over your money can
empower you to move forward in your
life. It's up to you to make all your
dreams: come true by wise use of your re-
sources: For more information on how
you can cut costs and take charge of your
money, contact the Madison County Ex-
tension Service.


I would
like to thank
all of my
readers again J c
for their com-
pliments and
their confi-
dence in me.
The other
day, while I
was at lunch, I was speaking with a gen-
tleman who thanked me for the stand I
had taken against the proposed alcohol
amendment in Madison County.
"Don't let anyone get you down," he
said. "You have a lot of people praying
for you. You're doing the right thing."
I would like to say that I have not let
anything about the proposed amendment
get me down, because I know that what I
am doing is right. God speaks to me
through His holy written word in the
Bible and tells me that I am right about
the issue.
Now, the works of the flesh are evi-
dent, which are: adultery, fornication, un-
cleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, ha-
tred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of
wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions,

they are
reading
it in con-
text. In those days, because of the lack
of medicines that we have today, wine
was used for medicine. Timothy, who
was believed to have been a semi-in-
valid, was told by Paul to use the wine
for his stomach's sake and his frequent
infirmities. Timothy was probably in
the habit of abstaining from such be-
cause it would make him drunk. Be-
sides, this verse was directed to Timo-

I have had some hard knocks in my
life since last October. My father fell
and broke his hip, my brother got sick
and then I went through the issues with
my health. I still hold on to my faith in
Jesus Christ because "all things work

to those who are the called according to
His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
I will continue to promote an alco-
hol-free Madison County I believe what
God's Word says about alcohol con-
sumption and drunkenness. Why would
I want to encourage it? I also don't be-
lieve that having alcohol in Madison
County would prevent people from go-
ing out of town to Valdosta, Ga. to
spend their money There are many oth-
er reasons people go out-of-town:
Cheaper gas, movies, shopping at Wal-
Mart and the mall, Wild Adventures,
etc. Why doesn't Madison County have
these things? Believe me, alcohol would
not help.

Now


Around The Town
Thelma Thompson i
GuestCoum


Good morning! What lovely weather spring is here
at last. We always heard that when the pecan trees be-
gan to put on leaves, winter was over. We're changing
that to black walnuts we thought our black walnut was
dead this year, it is just now leafing out so winter has
definitely gone north.
Now that Lee Day is over and it certainly was a
great day in spite of everything (we even made a little
profit, which is unusual!) we can turn our minds and
efforts to other things. Foremost on the list is next
years' festival when the "Little But Proud" Town of Lee
will celebrate its 100th year of incorporation. You will
hopefully not get tired of hearing us "crow" all year!
The Lee Homecoming Committee met last Thursday
evening and we were fortunate to have a great turnout
of 18 to 20 dedicated volunteers who combed through
this year's festival for its successes and its faults and
then turned quickly to plans for the town's centennial.
With people like those at that round table, how can we
fail?! Also, we have the added asset of Tammy Webb as
Chair (thankfully she accepted the nomination!) and
JoAnn Kuhl as Vice-Chair. Thanks, JoAnn. Other new
members included Joe Boyles, Sandy Bacot and Michael
Curtis. Michael, though he and his family are fairly new
residents, has already proved himself as quite an asset
to his new community. We appreciate them all!
Lee has lost an old established and successful busi-
ness. James Bells Used Cars recently held an auction
(everything must go!) and, apparently, it did! We were
unable to reach James for this article, but we know how
much he and Belle love to travel so now, having rid
themselves of any encumbrances they are free to do so.
We wish them the best!
Lorraine Berghuis was a most welcome visitor to
Lee Saturday- Lorraine worked with us at the Lee Li-
brary and was there long after we left. Everyone loved
Lorraine and she has so many friends here that her time
with each was quite limited. She saw most of them at
the Methodist Church (where she had been a member)
on Sunday, and then she left to visit her sister in Pana-
ma City before returning home. She loves her new home
in Northwest Georgia but when visiting Myrtice Com-
bass and us she was quite nostalgic about her life in Lee
- she misses us as we miss her
We have had several bad things that have happened
to good people in the last few weeks (we're sorry to have
missed writing last week). Please keep the following

Over
Ronnie Payne's family Ronnie's was a familiar face
in Lee for many years. He was also a member of the Lee
Senior Citizen's Club along with his aunts, Kathleen
and Myrtice. We will miss him.
Wiley Collis' family Wiley also was a familiar, lov-
able character around Lee for years and will also be
missed.
Elizabeth Almand is still in the hospital but, hope-
fully improving.
V.T. Alderman in the hospital also and, we're sorry
to say, isn't showing improvement.
The family of Johnnie Grace.Collins Bland though
she lived in Cherry Lake, many will remember her as a
part of the Blands of Lee.
Lillian Allen, who is now home from the hospital,
but will still appreciate your prayers.
Ernestine Kinsey reports that both she and Simon
are doing much better Simon especially is showing
marked improvement, she says, but we're sure they
don't mind being left on your list.
This last may be minor to most people but we lost
our big beautiful dog last week we still haven't figured
out how he got out of the yard, but he ran in front of a
car which struck him so hard that pieces of the bumper
broke off. Of course, we could not fault them, although
we believe that a 40 mile an hour speed limit less than
half a block from a major caution light on 90 is too fast.
It could have been a child. We suppose we loved Big
Ben too much and he returned that love full measure.
With all the sad news, we wish you so long and a
much better week.

He has prosecuted cas-
es in all seven counties of
the Third Judicial Circuit
and has been previously
cross sworn to handle
prosecutions for Statewide
Prosecutor Melanie Hines.
Jarvis has also for the
past twenty years been an
instructor for the North
Florida Community Col-
lege Law Enforcement
Academy, where he teach-
es basic recruit classes to
law enforcement and cor-
rections officers, as well as
recertification and incen-
tive classes for experi-
enced officers. He holds a
close bond with his former
students, who are current-
ly serving in the areas of
law enforcement and cor-
rectiofs around the state,
many of whom are cur-
rently with law enforce-
ment agencies here in
Madison County and at
Madison Correctional In-
stitution.
Jarvis stresses three
areas he wishes to address


by his candidacy
First, the State Attor-
ney must be open and ac-
countable to the people he
represents. Any and all
citizens must be free to
openly and candidly speak
with their State Attorney
regarding matters of con-
cern to them. Jarvis has a
reputation for being acces-
sible to the public. He
states that while he may
not be able to disclose in-
formation or give the an-
swer they wish to hear, all
citizens should have ac-
cess to their governmental
prosecutor.
Second, as a prosecu-
tor, the State Attorney
must be law enforcement
oriented. There must be a
partnership with law en-
forcement agencies, while
maintaining indepen-
dence and discretion,
which is necessary to
make appropriate charg-
ing decisions. Jarvis's
Bachelors Degree in Crim-
inology, his having re-
ceived a Certification in
Law Enforcement, and his
training of and close rela-
tionship with his former
students have prepared
him to work closely with
and understand the needs
and concerns of officers
trying to keep the public
safe.
Third, the State Attor-
ney must be a person of in-


tegrity. Personal interests
or politics must never take
priority over his commit-
ment to the people. The of-
fice belongs to the people,
not the elected individual.
Jarvis has been mar-
ried for 39 years to Pamela
Manasco Jarvis who
works at Cheek and Scott
Drugs in Live Oak. They
have two daughters, Beth
Jarvis Cohen and Sara
Jarvis Patton and five
grandchildren.
He received an Honor-
able Discharge from the
United States Navy
"I helped to elect the
current State Attorney in
1978. Now, after thirty
years he is retiring and it
is time to elect a new State
Attorney. I have served
you as an Assistant State
Attorney for the past
twenty-four of those years.
I now ask for your support
and your vote on August
26th to elect me, Skip
Jarvis, to be your next
State Attorney"

of the full $6,500 request.
In the end, the BOCC
considered the positive
-present and future eco-
nomic impact that the Oc-
tober 2008 Genealogy Con-
ference will bring to Madi-
son County justification
for the decision. Before
the final vote however, the
board asked County Attor-
ney Tom Reeves to review
State Statute 125.0104 -
Tourist Development Tax
(a.k.a. the "bed tax") to en-
sure that the request qual-
ified, which Reeves com-
pleted during the meeting
break. With Reeves favor-
able review and a promise
to return any unused
funds, Spear received his
funding. Spear closed by
briefly noting that he had
returned money following
a previous allocation and
that he certainly would
again and exited.
Two additional items
from the meeting were the
board's approval of a
stricter Sexual Offender
and Sexual Predator ordi-
nance regarding residen-
tial proximity restrictions
and the approval of two
new cars for the Sheriff's


Both issues were dis-
cussed briefly with Sheriff
Pete Bucher who offered
support on each issue.
There Was also direction
offered to George Blevins
regarding the disposition
of a truck in possession of
the Sirmans Volunteer
Fire Department.

in at the center are arts and crafts; paint-
ing flower pots, birdhouses and oil paint-
ing; games such as ball toss, parachute
and bingo; exercise, either with video
aide or organized into line dancing and
such; keeping in touch with the commu-
nity by having speakers on such things
as health topics, safety and government,
as well as on a more personal level, such
as making "thank you" and "thinking of
you" cards. Along with live music and
cake at monthly birthday celebrations,


the Madison County Senior Center is
soon to be the place to be for socializing
and entertainment.
Yet, it is sometimes the extra odds
and ends that mean so much to a senior
in need. Things like yard work, minor
home repair, and personal care items are
just some of the things that can slip by
unnoticed. Needed are a few volunteers
who can lend a hand, either donating
items or helping fix the kinks that build
with time in an older home. Merely a mi-
nor chore to some, it can make all the dif-
ference to others who can't by them-
selves.
Some items that the center could al-
ways use are adult diapers (all sizes from
X-Small to Plus); fitted hospital sheets;
bed pads, Poise pads, briefs and pull-ups;
disposable gloves; Ensure, Boost and
Glucerna (all flavors); grab bars (installa-
tion of grab bars); shower chairs (new or
used) and wheelchairs.
Any that can be rounded up and dropped
off to the center would be greatly appre-
ciated.
For more information or to donate
time, items or care, please contact Eliza-
beth Hollingsworth at her email: caringi-
nactionMadison@yahoo.com, the website:
www.madisonseniors.org or by phone at
850-973-4241. Madison County's precious
seniors appreciate the care more than
can be told.

Recycling Piling Up Revenues For Madison County


Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Michael Curtis, April 16, 2008


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madison County Recycling and Solid
Waste Coordinator Jerome Wyche is ex-
tremely proud of the recycling efforts
that are picking up throughout the coun-
ty Thanks to concerned citizens and
businesses ranging in size from street
vendors to Nestle, recycling keeps the
community cleaner and landfills utilized
much more effectively
"The county has really improved its
recycling efforts and we look to keep
building from here. With the continued
support of the community, not to men-
tion the great staff working in the Recy-
cling Department, Madison County will
be among the best in the state in resource
management," noted Wyche.


There are several categories of recy-
cling, including plastics and cardboard.
On April 16 a cardboard shipment was be-
ing loaded following a bundling proce-
dure performed by an impressive $95,000
machine that is mostly automated.
"Today we're loading a truck with ap-
proximately 40,000 pounds of cardboard
recycling. At $150 per ton, the revenue
generated from a cardboard shipment of
this size will yield $3,000 for the county
Recycling also qualifies for grant support
as well," Wyche explained.
Wyche and all the recycling staff thank
the residents of Madison for their contin-
ued support of this vital effort.

Fire Inspector Illustrates Safety Planning To Rotary Club


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Following the customary delicious
lunch catered by Made to Order, at the
April 2 meeting of the Madison Rotary
Club, Madison Fire Inspector Archie
Strickland conducted an informational,
and at times startling, presentation on
fire safety In the end, he dispelled a few
misconceptions regarding children and
fire alarms as well as offered valuable in-


sights into the benefits of commercial
and residential sprinkler systems.
Madison Fire Chief Alfred Martin in-
troduced Strickland who began with an
amusing and very revealing video. The
video showed a family performing a situ-
ational test on the effectiveness of the
smoke alarms in their home. The study,
which was conducted late at night while
the children were sleeping, revealed that
the alarms sounded for an extended peri-

can be heard, in the Board Meeting Room, Courthouse Annex, 229 Southwest Pinckney Street, Madison,
Florida. The title of said ordinance reads, as follows:
AN ORDINANCE OF MADISON COUNTY, FLORIDA, AMENDING THE MADISON
COUNTY LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE, AS AMENDED; PURSUANT TO AN
APPLICATION, LDC 08-1, BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS;
PROVIDING FOR AMENDING SECTION 4.4.H. H, ENTITLED LAND USE DISTRICT
REQUIREMENTS, HIGHWAY INTERCHANGE, SPECIAL EXCEPTIONS BY ADDING

Chief Alfred Martin and Fire Inspector Archie Strickland for the time fire safety review.


od of time Without the children awaken-
ing. Strickland then expounded, defining
what constitutes a reasonable amount of
time to escape a fire. Again, to the par-
ents alarm and dismay, the children kept
sleeping through this short window.
To reinforce the message that alarms,
evacuation planning and sprinklers are
essential to maximize fire safety, Strick-
land referred to illustrations of a 2003
nightclub fire that occurred at The Sta-
tion in West Warwick, Rhode Island.
Misfiring pyrotechnics caused the club to
be engulfed in flames and in the ensuing
frenzy dozens were trampled and burned
to death.
West Warwick Fire Chief Charlie
Hall said because the wooden structure
was small and was built before 1976, it


was not required to have a sprinkler sys-
tem. But when asked if one would have
helped the situation, he said, "If there
were sprinklers in this building, we
wouldn't be here right now."
Strickland and Martin earnestly
echoed this same opinion to the group of
grateful Rotarians in attendance. In the
end, it was effectively emphasized that
fire safety requires more than installing
smoke alarms being careful with the
stove because when a serious fire arises
it will likely come with little warning
and a few seconds, certainly minutes,
may be all that separates triumph from
tragedy

Happenings At Welcoming The Madison County

Madison First Senior Center's Newest Case Manager


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing Inc.
The Madison County Senior
Citizens Center just welcomed its
newest caseworker recently. Eliza-
beth Hollingsworth, taking the
place of Joan Beck, joined the Se-
nior Center Monday, April 1, as a
Case Manager/Coordinator.
Calling her community part of
the job "Caring In Action" much
of Hollingsworth's efforts will be
focusing on the needs, programs
and activities taking place at the
center. As for the true caring part
of the title, Hollingsworth is at the
heart of the matter, always look-
ing for new ways to promote the
caring of Madison's community.
Loving what she is doing,
Hollingsworth is already busy
planning activities and events for
the seniors in her charge.
"This job is huge,"
Hollingsworth recognizes. "It's go-
ing to take the Lord to get it done."
To enlist His' aid,
Hollingsworth even wants to in-
clude a prayer gram every once in
a while to cover the seniors Citi-


Elizabeth Hollingsworth joins
Madison Senior Centers.
zens Center staff, consumers, vol-
unteers, and visitors: everyone re-
ceiving the prayer gram.
Hollingsworth is also interest-
ed in helping the Madison com-
munity stay involved with the se-
niors and their needs by provid-
ing an ongoing bulletin alerting
those that can help to all needs,
from volunteers for activities to
personal care items and fix-up


like yard work and minor home
repairs.
Aiming for the announcement
to run once a month, the list of
needs will be there for anyone
who can lend a hand in help.
Some activities to be listed are

dent talent as they raised
community awareness on
such topics as abstinence,
teen pregnancy, drug and
alcohol use and building
relationships with skits,
singing and stepping.
With increasing pub-
lic awareness of the dan-
gers and costs of teen
pregnancy, programs that
educate as well as involve
students are ever more
important. An innovative
abstinence program, the
aim of W.A.I.T. is to exclu-
sively teach love and mar-
riage with sex, including
modules on character for-
mation, healthy relation-
ships, positive youth. de-
velopment, and marriage
preparation and life skills.
With a total of 376 stu-
dents attending the educa-
tional program, the stu-
dents were divided into
two groups, separating
the girls from the boys.
The instructors were
Jackie Watts and Charlie
Barfield for the boys and
Judy Hill, Leatha Gervin,


Elmire Cantey, Jackie
Bradley and Tracey Kelly
for the girls, touched on
such topics as postponing
sexual activity until mar-
riage, not becoming in-
volved with drug, alcohol
or tobacco use and build-
ing relationships and set-
ting boundaries within
those relationships. Also
covered was building suc-
cessful relationships
based on learning what
kind of communication
style best fits the person-
alities of those in the var-
ious relationships, en-
hancing the relationship
itself and helping to avoid
future conflicts.
W.A.I.T.'s presence at
the rally was to collabo-
rate with partners, such
as "Steppin' Out," who
share the same concerns
regarding the future of
Madison's precious
youth. With an overall
goal to provide absti-
nence education, inform-

the rally also is aimed at
creating.awareness in the

As it cannot be
stressed enough that it
takes a village to raise a
child, more educational
programs are needed that
are aimed at teaching ba-
bies what it means to
have babies. Talking hon-
estly early on to a child
about the consequences
of sexuality and how to
handle relationships on
all levels can help them
make better decisions lat-
er that will affect the rest
of their lives. Open adult
to teen communication is
essential at the point
where children need the
elders to give them the in-
formation and tools to
make those decisions and
programs like Steppin'
Out provide a more re-
laxed social setting in
which to learn, discuss
and share.

Son


My oldest son, Kevin, was seriously injured in an
ATV accident around 1:00 a.m. Friday morning. When I
received this news and was told to call 911, I must say
that it was a mother's worst nightmare. Following the
events of the previous week, it seemed like my body was
totally giving out on me, especially when the call came
over my scanner that he was unresponsive and not
breathing. My heart sank and the tears came along with
life events past, present, and future, running through
my head. His son, my grandson, I was out of self-control.
I never wish this feeling of emptiness on anyone. His fa-
ther was out of town at the time, so he wasn't there to
catch me as my body gave out. I arrived at the scene (as
it was less than a mile from home) before the ambu-
lance. The ATV was mangled and so was he. He was
thrown about ten to twelve feet from the ATV; his head
was bleeding; his body slumped over. He was gurgling
and mumbling when I got there, but was previously un-
conscious, his arms and legs were not looking right. He
was fighting with his friends to let him get up. They had
to force him to remain calm and still while keeping him
talking, until the paramedics arrived. He was loaded
onto a backboard, strapped, and braced as they loaded
him into the ambulance. They took him to South Geor-
gia Medical Center. I remained behind-to give the offi-
cers his information, and we had to wait for the High-
way Patrol before his friends could move the ATV.
He suffered multiple injuries, he had a gash in his
head, which required eight staples; he had two skull
fractures one in the front temple area, the other on the
right side; there was a small bleed into the brain that
was a concern at first. He broke both collarbones, two
ribs, and three vertebrae in the upper part of his back
were broken. He had a small puncture wound in his
lung, which was a concern at first, as well. Miraculous-
ly his legs, knees, and feet, (everything from the waist
down) was fine, except for some road rash and scratch-
es.
He spent two-and-a-half days in ICU, at which time
he was heavily medicated for pain. He had several fami-
ly members and friends visiting him, most of which he
doesn't recall being there, including myself. He was
moved to a regular room on Sunday. Now he is waiting
for the doctor to schedule the surgery. Shortly after that,
he should be at home with a long period of healing time
and will return to work in two to three months. Unfor-
tunately he started running a fever on Tuesday, which is
believed to be due to an infection somewhere. By Tues-
day p.m., the fever had broken and he is now on antibi-
otics. The Wednesday scheduled surgery has been post-
poned, at this time. I am unsure when it will be re-sched-
uled.
Kevin was in a trail bike accident a couple of years
ago, at which time he had fractured his neck. He under-
went surgery to have a metal plate put in his neck. When
I heard and saw that he was in this recent ATV accident,
I was very worried that he could be paralyzed if that
plate had shifted or anything. We made sure the para-
medics knew about this previous injury right away.
Updated information that we know now is that the
gash has been stapled. The skull fractures will heal in
time, as long as they do not receive anymore blunt force
trauma. The small bleed in the brain was absorbed into
the brain tissue, and is not causing any neurological dam-
age as yet. The ribs and vertebrae will heal on their own.
The puncture wound in the lung is very tiny and will heal
with no breathing problems. Results from a CAT scan on
Monday showed yet another fracture which is affecting
his middle ear, and causing hearing loss in one ear. The
collarbones (clavicles) will take a few months to fully
heal. He is going to undergo surgery to have a metal plate,
put in to straighten out the collarbones so they will heal
properly, so that he will have no restrictions on his move-
ment where the shoulders and arms are concerned.
We believe that God is watching out for hum and sav-
ing him for something. This was his third major accident.
He rolled his Bronco completely upside down in 2000. and
walked away with a few cuts; the motorcycle (trail bike)
accident in 2006, and now this ATV accident. Although
he doesn't know the reasons why he has been spared, he
definitely started to think about it. I pray that he has
learned a lesson and will think twice before he risks be-
ing foolish, knowing what he has to look forward to in his
life and for his son. I will keep everyone updated as his
condition improves.
See You Next Week!!

Cont from page 1A WORKSHOP Cont from page 1A


important events in the
life of a college that all de-
cisions that are made
should result in increased
opportunities for instruc-
tors to teach and for stu-
dents to learn. The major
goals of my administra-
tion would stress reaching
out to the communities we
serve, to actively recruit
the brightest and best, to
increase minority enroll-
ment and employment, to
continue to, promote ca-
reer and vocational pro-
grams that meet the needs
of the communities we
serve and to continue to
promote dual enrollment
opportunities. I have
proven administrative
leadership, leadership
that can effectively assist
the North Florida Com-
munity College faculty
and staff as we reach out
to the communities we
serve.

BRIAN O'CONNELL

For the past four years
I've had the pleasure of
living in Madison and
working on the campus of
North Florida Communi-
ty College as director and
professor for Saint Leo
University I believe my
education, experience,
and love of this communi-
ty make me an excellent
choice for President of
NFCC.
My doctorate in educa-
tion from the University
of West Florida has pre-
pared me to understand
current pedagogical prac-
tices and effective cur-
riculum development, and
my Master of Public Ad-
ministration degree from
Troy University has given
me the financial and orga-
nizational management
tools necessary to effec-
tively lead a community
college in a time of fiscal
restraint and diminished
resources. My baccalau-
reate degree in Speech
and English Education
from Wayne State Univer-
sity and my years as a
speech and debate teacher
have enhanced and devel-
oped my communication
skills, giving me the abili-'
ty to represent the college
with ease and confidence.


As director of pro-
grams at both Troy Uni-
versity and Saint Leo Uni-
versity, I have supervised
administrators, faculty,
and staff while creating a
climate that values open-
ness, integrity, and mutu;
al respect. As the director
of Saint Leo's Madison
and Tallahassee campus-
es, I have conducted
strategic planning, creat-
ed and managed operating
budgets, received ad-
vanced leadership train-
ing, participated on ac-
creditation committees,
and advised over 200 AA
to BA transfer students.
My role as a professor of
education has given me
great insight to the teach-
ing and learning realities
and responsibilities that
college faculty face each
day, and an understanding
of the educational chal-
lenges facing our six-
county service area.
I'm married to Eliza-
beth Hengstebeck, and I
enjoy working on Madison
Rotary Club projects and
serving as a lector, council
member, and a strategic
planning and capital cam-
paign chair at my church,
I'm grateful that I have
had the opportunity to
work, interact, and collab-
orate with so many dedi-
cated people from NFCC
these past four years, and
I'm humbled by the many
prayers and words of sup-
port I have received from
faculty, staff, students, my
church family, and the
community.

HARRY ROTTER

Harry Rotter, Ph.D.,
resides in Madison with
his wife of 37 years, Eliza-
beth. They have three chil-
dren. Rotter came to Madi-

served its six county area.
Rotter, a retired CW4
officer in the Army Re-
serves, served his third
deployment in Iraq work-.
ing with time critical ad-
ministrative actions for
the Commanding Gener-
als LTG Sanchez and

Rotter received his
Ph.D. in Educational Psy-
chology from Georgia
State University in 1999.
Included in his im-
pressive work history he
worked 33 years in educa-
tion, which included
working at Southwest

ment and Developmental
Studies. He was employed
21 years as an adjunct in-
structor for Gordon Col-
lege, Barnesville, Ga.,
University Maryland, Eu-
ropean Division and Saint

Rotter currently su-
pervises instructors,
counsels students and de-
velops curriculums for
Saint Leo's main campus
Psychology programs. He
is involved as an advocate
for the Madison County
Alcohol and Other Drug
Prevention Coalition serv-
ing the community youth.
Rotter is the Commander
of the American Legion
Post 68 and President of
the Council for Exception-
al Children Big Bend.
"As his transcripts
and his exceptional mili-
tary record highlight,
Harry is intellectually
gifted and "a proven
leader," said Col. Shane
Deverill, US Army Inspec-
tor General. "Harry Rot-
ter is a man for all seasons
and my first pick for selec-
tion as President of North

Joe Myers introduced the all-day workshop and seasoned
providers, which included Senior Consultants Mike
McHargue and Gary Yates, as well as DSI President Lin-
da Erdmann. Following discussion of several broader
points pertaining to the implementation and evaluation
of the district's Emergency Operations Plan, the focus
turned to the exercise portion of the meeting, "a dynam-
ic school-based 'active shooter' workshop."
McHargue served as both moderator and facilitator,
seamlessly taking the group from familiarization to ap-
plication, ultimately introducing a hypothetical scenario
that's designed to generate policy discussion. Policy con-
struction and distribution would naturally follow. In the
end, all parties to potential future incidents, from par-
ents to police, will learn to maximize the effectiveness of
his or her response. As McHargue noted on several oc-
casions throughout the presentation, these events are be-
coming less rare and must be met.with a rapid response
that requires extensive planning and preparation.
McHargue and Yates bring stellar Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement (FDLE) resumes to the
process, while Myers previously served as State Emer-
gency Management Director.. Collaborating with Erd-
mann, the team has developed a great reputation in a
short time for their direction on these timely, albeit un-
popular, issues.
School District leadership expressed appreciation
for the workshop, building on efforts they too had under-
taken. The recent prank at the high school pointed out
the importance of periodically updating and improving
policy on such issues. McHargue'really drove the point
home as well, providing a brief overview of numerous
school shootings over the years, each illustrating the
need for, or consequence of not having, a rapid, planned
response.
Between historical examples and modern scenarios,
one aspect of proposed response policy was made very
clear, the number one priority is to neutralize the threat.
Concurrent with this action though, there are a variety
of challenges including communication, student and
public safety, not to mention the awesome task of simply
keeping assignments and responsibilities clear under
such duress. Frankly, it makes football's two-minute
drill look elementary by comparison.
Everyone in attendance agreed that Madison County
is fortunate to have leadership in emergency manage-
ment and the school district dedicated to providing the
very best response possible and that calling in the spe-
cialist from DSI was an invaluable contribution to that
goal.
"It's all about our children, there's nothing more impor-
tant," Emergency Management Directoi Jim Stanley
noted.
School Superintendent Lou Miller' couldn't agree
more. "This workshop and exercise are so important in
the development of the our School Safety Plan."

l inaili LU ullnail &O AssoUiaLtes iciu surveyors Ui
Madison, projects are running more quickly and
smoothly in the drafting department of North Flori-
da Community College. Instructor Lauri Newton
said, "Putnal & Associates donated a plotter and a
blueprint machine that allow our students to be
more productive." Lesley Putnal Bontrager spear-
headed the donation.
"Drafting students do a lot of printing," ex-
plained Newton. "When a live project is completed
it takes about 20 sheets of paper. It's very time con-
suming. In the past students have had to literally
wait in line to use our single plotter to print the pro-
ject." The donations are a time-saver for students.
Graduates of NFCC's drafting program work in
businesses throughout north Florida. Ernie
Kennedy, a 2002 NFCC graduate, is a draftsman at
Putnal & Associates. Kennedy was a student of for-
mer NFCC instructor Bobby Harper. After gradua-
tion, he did architectural drawing for Harper's pri-
vate consulting business. Later, he joined Putnal &
Associates where he has been a part of the company
for five years.
The Pinetta resident said he had been interested
in drawing throughout high school. "I had a couple
of friends in the drafting program under Mr. Harp-
er, so when they recommended the course to me, I
became a full-time student," said Kennedy.
"Being in the drafting program was interest-
ing," said Kennedy. "I was able to work at my own
pace not held back and not rushed. It was a good
way to learn."
The NFCC drafting program may have gotten its
start as early as 1962 when the college began offer-
ing an Engineering Drawing course at night in con-
junction with a new Civil Engineering program.
News articles at the time described courses "offered
for drafters and surveyors who wish to upgrade
their skills." A stand-alone drafting program must
have been in full force in 1968-69 because the first
drafting instructor, T. Early Bottomley, was listed
among the faculty. Richard Scruggs and Charles R.
Swain followed Bottomley. In 1973 Robert Harper, a
NFJC graduate, became instructor and served until
2002.
Current instructor, Lauri Bundrick Newton of
Perry, an honors graduate of the program, joined
NFCC in 2004.
For information about the NFCC Drafting pro-
gram, contact Newton at newtonL@nf,'edwor-tele-
phone 850-973-1633. .

FWC Sets New Rules At Tallahassee Meeting


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) sorted through a list of rule proposals
during its two-day meeting in Tallahassee.
During Wednesday's session, Commissioners ap-
proved a new management plan for bald eagles; deletion
of the bald eagle from the list of threatened species; and
new rules prohibiting taking, feeding, disturbing, pos-
sessing, selling, purchasing or bartering of any bald ea-
gle or its nest or eggs, except as authorized by permit.
The new rules also prohibit any person from enter-
ing an area on nest sites that has been posted as closed
for protection of the bald eagle.
Also during Wednesday's session, Commissioners
approved permitting guidelines for activities that affect
gopher tortoises. Commissioners heard reports on Pet
Amnesty Day, held in February, and the risk assessment
for barramundi.
The Commission voted not to continue a reciprocal
agreement with Georgia that allowed senior citizens
from the two states to hunt and freshwater fish in either






The Florida Fish ard Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) has formed a team to study and make recom-
mendations on rules concerning freshwater turtle harvest.
There are restrictions on the harvest of several fresh-
water turtle species, but softshell turtles have no restric-
tions on their harvest, except during the closed season,
May through July
The Center for Biological Diversity, the St. Johns River-
keeper and the Center for Food Safety recently petitioned
the FWC, Gov. Charlie Crist's office and the Florida De-
partment of Health to enact an emergency ruling which
would suspend the harvest of all freshwater turtles in
Florida.
An emergency ruling would only be effective for 90
days, under Florida statute. Softshell turtle harvest is
closed from May 1 to July 31, so a 90-day closure would only
provide 30 additional days of protection. FWC biologists be-
lieve an emergency ruling would not resolve the issue and
would provide only a temporary solution in any case.
As a result, the FWC staff has filed a rule development
notice concerning the harvest of freshwater turtles and
hopes to have a recommendation to present to its commis-
sioners at the June meeting.
In addition to the closed season on harvesting soft-
shell turtles and their eggs, river cooters may not be taken
from April 15 to July 31. During these closed seasons, the
FWC will be studying the situation, and FWC's Division of
Law Enforcement will be extra diligent in enforcing the
closed season, which is the breeding and nesting season for
softshell turtles. The agency is also willing to consider an
extension of the closed seasons if needed.
Restrictions are placed year-round on harvesting of
turtles and possession of eggs of the following species: riv-
er cooters (two), alligator snapping turtles (one), logger-
head musk turtles (two), box turtles (two), Barbour's map
turtles (two), Escambia River map turtles (two) and dia-
mondback terrapins (two). Purchasing or selling turtle
eggs collected from the wild is prohibited.


state without buying a license. Georgia Department of
Natural Resources officials notified the FWC last year
that Georgia wanted to rescind the hunting provision of
the agreement, but FWC Commissioners voted to re-
scind the freshwater fishing provision as well. The
agreement never has applied to saltwater fishing.
SFlorida resident senior citizens still are entitled to
hunt and fish in Florida without purchasing a Florida
license, although the FWC encourages seniors to pur-
chase licenses to support conservation.
The FWC also approved new rules to continue the
moratorium on reducing the number of traps in the lob-
ster fishery for one year and allow two spiny lobster en-
dorsement numbers to be displayed from one vessel to
enable both endorsement holders to fish from the vessel.
Also, the new rule prohibits harvest and possession
of egg-bearing lobsters of any species.
Commissioners also proposed new rules to allow
commercial harvest of mullet on weekends, extend the
Stone Crab Advisory Board to July 1, 2011 and allow the


use of galvanized, 16-guage or thinner, degradable sta-
ples to construct the degradable panel on wire stone
crab traps. Final hearings on these proposed rules will
be held in June.
In other marine fisheries action, the FWC consid-
ered South Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico Fishery Man-
'agement councils' grouper and vermilion snapper man-
agement alternatives and other federal marine fisheries
management issues. In addition, they received a report
on FWC marine fishery stock assessments and reviewed
and discussed special activity license rule modifica-
tions, marine life (aquarium fish) issues and a stock as-
sessment of the pompano fishery
The agenda also included final review of the vision
document on the future of Florida's freshwater fish-
eries.
The complete agenda is available at
MyFWC.com/Commission/2008/Apr08/index.htm.
The next FWC meeting will be in Dania Beach, June
11-12.


FWC Cautions Boaters To



Watch For Migrating Manatees


Manatees are on the move as
Florida waters begin to warm up,
and the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
cautions boaters to be on the
lookout for migrating manatees.
Manatees are especially vul-
nerable in spring and fall when
they travel along the Gulf and
Atlantic coasts. Kipp Frohlich,
leader of the FWC's Imperiled
Species Management Section,
said boaters can help manatees
have a safe migration by staying
in marked channels, wearing po-
larized sunglasses to improve vi-
sion, obeying posted boat speed
zones, using poles, paddles or
trolling motors when in close
proximity to manatees and hav-
ing someone help scan the water
when under way.
For more information about
manatees, visit
