An uninvited guest - a Florida
gator, recently visited Joe and Penny
Worden of Whispering Pines. Billy and
Mariam Stephens of Madison spotted
the intruder as it sneaked across Pickle
Lane onto the Wordens' property
Two professional alligator hunters
were summoned from Taylor County
and were eventually able to corner and
subdue the reptile, which had crawled
up under the Wordens' antique sop.
Many neighbors from Whispering
Pines gathered to watch the exciting
event. One of them said it was the most
commotion that had been seen since
Jimmy King killed his 100th armadillo.


most since 2004, when 43 were reported.
Both police and the Sheriff's Office re-,
ported a spike in assaults. Sheriff Pete
Bucher said that the poor economy and
unemployment rate might be what
caused such a spike in the numbers.
A total of 54 burglaries occurred in
the City of Madison in 2007, compared
to a total of 44 burglaries in 2006.
One-hundred-fifty-nine larcenies oc-
curred in the City of Madison in 2007,
compared to 139 larcenies the year be-
fore.
There were eight motor vehicle
thefts in 2007, compared to four in 2006.
The percentage of Uniform Crimes
cleared was 25.5.
Police Chief Rick Davis said that, of
all crimes, including domestic situa-


tions and drug arrests, a total of 54 or 55
percent were cleared.
The Madison County Sheriff's Office
saw a -3.3 percent index change in the
Uniform Crime Index. The total crime
index for the Sheriff's Office was listed
at 500.
There were no murders for the Sher-
iff's Office in 2007.
.The Sheriff's Office worked six
forcible rapes in 2007, as well as three
robberies, 137 burglaries, 207 larcenies
and 23 motor vehicle thefts.
Overall, the Sheriff's Office saw a -
4.2 - crime rate change.
Detailing the Madison Police Depart-
ment's change in 2007 would be difficult,
since there was a software glitch in 2006,
according to Davis.

Announces

Candidacy

For County

Commissioner,

District 5
I am proud to announce my candi-
dacy for the District 5 County Commis-
sion seat, the Lee District. My parents,
Early and
Fronie Don-
aldson, set-
tled on the
family farm
southeast of
Lee in the
late thirties
and raised a,
large family
that many of
you remem-
ber; Edward,
Mary, Irene,
C.T. (Thur-
ston), Fred,
Marshall, Howard and myWself. After
graduating from Madison High Schoil.
I enlisted in the Navy serving in the
Naval Security Group Command; arid
completed twenty years of service to
my country in 1978. Since then I have
held the positions of Purchasing Man-
ager for an electric cooperative, Prod-
uct Manager in the private sector, and a
City Manager for four Florida cities.
For several years now I have functioned
as a Circuit Rider with the Florida Rur-
al Association, assisting small commu-
nities throughout Florida with Security
Assessments, Emergency Response
Planning, Budget Development and
Long Range Planning, Water and Sewer
Rate Reviews, Capacity or Impact Fee
Studies, plus providing Targeted Board
Management Training for elected com-
missioners and council members. I
have learned the functions of local gov-
ernment from the inside and the sum of
all these experiences provide excellent
qualifications for the position of .Coun-
ty Commissioner.
I am married to the former Maria
Dolores Oquendo of Puerto Rico and
some of you will recall seeing her smil-
'ing face at Revco Drugs when the Madi-
son Square Shopping Center first
opened in the early eighties as well as
when she was Lunchroom Manager at
Lee School. We moved back to the old
family farm about five years ago where
I have my home office with the Florida
Rural Water Association. Like many of
you, our family is scattered with Diana
in Tallahassee, Caroline in Jack-
sonville, Craig here in Lee and Chris in
Salt Lake City and my wife .Maria,
spends a lot time chasing those wonder-
ful grandkids!
Why do I want to be your County
Commissioner? Someone once wrote
something about "Government For the
People" and it seems that our govern-
ment has forgotten about the "People"
part. I am motivated to help change
that and once again provide you with a
local government that you can have
confidence in. I have learned that. it is
difficult to make something happen
from the sidelines and I do not blieqv
that constant complaining represents
responsible citizenship. It seems tomie
that becoming involved is the wayf to
make a difference. These are challerg-
ing times. We 'have seen dramatic 4il-
creases in property taxes, fuel costs are
through the roof, food prices are very
high, Land Use Regulations do:no3:
make sense, and the, list goes on. :The
challenges we face call out for effective
leadership, good management, account-
ability, and a fiscal conservative ^ap-
proach with the peoples money. :Iain
up to the challenge of providing "Goxv-
ernment For The People", and, Togeth-
er WE CAN do Better. Your help and
support will be gratefully appreciated.

and concerns at pitacoy@nettally.com,

iewpints & Opinions

In Their Own Words


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
When the challenges and opportunities of Madison
County were discussed during the recent visioning
"process, several common themes emerged. Perhaps
most central among them however, was the notion that
helping one another is the basic building block for mak-
ing everything better. Getting healthier, better educat-
ed and gainfully employed en route to becoming a bet-
ter provider, contributor and steward to the communi-
ty is a team effort. Then, as more and more individuals
grow, so goes and grows the community.
Among American Presidents, Theodore Roosevelt
was certainly known as one of the most active, adven-
turous, supportive and outspoken regarding a shared
American Dream. His views and decisions are leg-
endary, in total earning him a prestigious place among
only three others whose accomplishments are reflected
in their chiseled faces, which sit etched on a mountain-
side in South Dakota.
What then are Roosevelt's feelings regarding, com-
munity and resting on life's accomplishments once
those accomplishments create the financial freedom to
do,./o. In other Words, what is your view about retire-
ment in the midst of a community and a nation with
dire and immediate needs?
.Here is Roosevelt's answer, in his own words...
. "A life of slothful ease, a life of that peace which
springs merely from lack either of desire or of power to
strive after great things, is as little worthy of a nation
as of an iAdividual. I ask only that what every self-re-
specting American demands from himself and from his
sons shall be demanded of the American nation as a
whole.


Ministers Of Christ

God has been so good to .m and He has allowed fme
to minister not only through this column, but also,
through my church.
Each Sunday, I get up and read the offertory infor-
mation that my pastor puts in the bulletin each week.
During Four Freedoms Week, I, along with children,
teens and adults from my church got to read the Bible at
the Gazebo. I was so proud when the children and teens
were up there reading.
I am also my church website's web master, although
I haven't had a chance to update it in a while.
The ministry that I am getting the biggest kick out of
these days is putting together videos for the children's
and youth church. The leaders, and even some of the
kids, have told me that they were frightened when they
were watching a video entitled '"A Letter from Hell" and
that they were shocked when they saw a video of the
Rapture. I also enjoy making video slideshows and post-
ing them on YouTube, as well as sharing them with the
youth class at the church.
My ministry within the church is. a small ministry,
compared to that of others. My pastor, Retis Flowers,
has served in the pulpit for 35 years. His assistant, Dr.
Vernelle Flowers, has an eloquent way of teaching the
Bible and brings out highlights that one has never
thought of before. Janie Ruth Penny serves as treasurer
and teaches in the church, along with Brother James
Phillips. Sister Annie Laura Bass, Sister Lenora Pate
and Sister Janice Flowers work in the pre-K class. Sister
Myrtice Tompkins and her daughter, Lori Blount, man-
age the teens and tweens. Brother Flowers teaches a
Sunday School class for young adults and middle-aged
people. Sister Carol Brooks does a great job teaching the
seniors in their class. Brother Elvoye Thomas does an
admirable job as Sunday School superintendent, as does
Brother Roy Phillips as his assistant and Brother
Elvoye's wife, Betty Jewel, as the Sunday School secre-
tary Brother James Phillips, Sister Margie Phillips, Sis-
ter, Carol Brooks, Sister Annie Laura Thomas, Sister
Lenora Pate and Sister Janice Flowers teach the youth
and children's church. Sister Joyce Williams, Sister
Regina Forrest, Sister Vernelle Allen and Sister Margie
Phillips do piano playing. My brother, Danny, and Broth-
er Roy Phillips collect the offering.
:: There are so many other people in the church who
minister in ways that they don't know about. My daddy
prays for people and my sister, Abbie, although she is
mentally challenged, uses her disabilities to demon-
strate her abilities as she praises the Lord. Sister Louise
Rogers is always a blessing as she demonstrates her
faith and her warmth. I am blessed by the handshakes of
men like Turner Phillips, Julian Penny, Brad Forrest
and Danny Blount, as well as the smiles of children and
teens like Georgia, Emmie and J.W Phillips, Tiffany
Phillips, Mary Pate, Ethan Phillips, Jonathan Penny,
Bethany Phillips, Ashlyn Blount, T.J. Cline, Chloe Cline,
Precious Cline, Devin Cline, Cody Cline, Jimmy
Reynolds, Forest Green, Erika Hodge, Billie Flowers,
and the list goes on...
I know that I have probably left a few names out but
I didn't do it intentionally I appreciate the ministry that
every one gives to the Lord Jesus Christ at Midway
Church of God and around the world.


Freedom from effort in the present merely means
that there has been stored up effort in the past. A man
can be freed from the necessity of work only by the fact
that he or his fathers before him have worked to good
purpose. If the freedom thus purchased is used aright,
and the man still does actual work, though of a differ-
ent kind, whether as a writer or a general, whether in
the field of politics or in the field of exploration and ad-
venture, he shows he deserves his good fortune.
But if he treats this period of freedom from the
need. of actual labor as a period, not of preparation, but
of mere enjoyment, even though perhaps not of vicious
enjoyment, he shows that he is simply a cumberer of
the earth's surface, and he surely unfits himself to hold
his own with his fellows if the need to do so should
again arise. A mere life of ease is not in the end a very
satisfactory life, and, above all, it is a life, which ulti-
mately unfits those who follow it for serious work in the
world."
A well respected local jurist once told this reporter
that the biggest and most immediate favorable impact
could be made in Madison County if the "people in the
balcony would just reach down."' This idea however, is
not suggesting that everyone help everywhere until
they are tired and uifable to enjoy the freedom that a
successful career has brought them. Besides, the prob-
lems seem so big, right?
So it begs the question: "What can I do and where
can I start?"
The answer is simple: "Start where you are, and do
what you can."

Taking Him For Granted
I've been taking my husband Kevin for granted. He
is my jack of all trades and master of none you might
say This past week or so has made me realize just how
much I depend on him.
This past week has turned out to be a bit more
stressful than I had anticipated. Although up to this
point I have survived it. Kevin's cousin had passed away
on Monday April 7, and Kevin had to fly to New York for
the funeral services on short notice. I was unable to go
along, mainly because I promised my sister I would help
out and attend my niece Sabrina's baby shower on April
12th in New Port Richey, and with the short notice, fi-
nancial reasons and I really couldn't afford to miss a
whole week of work. Therefore, I stayed behind to con-
tinue with my original plans. On that Wednesday, imme-
diately following my morning paper route, I had to drive
Kevin to the airport in Jacksonville.
I was leaving the airport a bit frantic, as I wasn't
sure if I could get out of Jacksonville as easily as he
drove in. You see, I'm terrible with directions and very
nervous driving in multiple lanes of traffic on those
round-about bypasses around big cities. That's what
Kevin is for. I was also worried about my two front tires
with broken belts in need of replacement. We were go-
ing to look in to buying some new ones while in New
Port Richey over the weekend. Changing a tire is anoth-
er reason I have Kevin. Thankfully, I managed to arrive
at home safely before dark with the assistance of my
Gannin Navigator and my guardian angels.
Thursday night I finished my route alone, usually I
have Kevin to help protect me out there at night, and dri-
ve for me after dark. Friday morning, I set out early to
finish my morning route and set out alone on the four
hour trip to New Port Richey with my bad tires doing a
lot of praying. I usually can only drive two to three
hours at a time, that's why I've got Kevin. Well, three
hours into the trip my tires were still holding up but,
around Crystal River, on Highway 19, my car started act-
ing funny- not the tires, but the engine. It was cutting
off and wanting to stall, I'd feather the gas and it would
pick up. It was really getting scary, because I was on a
bad stretch of the highway where there's a void of noth-
ing for miles, no gas stations, stores or anything. I dug
out my cell phone and to no surprise of course there was
no signal. I'm frantic now, saying to myself, "Where's
Kevin when I need him." Oh, yeah, he's 1,500 miles away
It stalled a couple of times, I let it set and it started back
up each time. I fought with it until I came back into civ-
ilization. I pulled into the first gas station, still about 45
miles shy of my destination. I opened the hood, I don't
know why, because I know nothing about what to look
for under there. I guess I was looking for smoke or
squirting fluids, or something that didn't-look right, or,
might be an obvious problem. Who did I call? You
guessed it, Kevin; I. told him what it was doing and he
said it sounded like the fuel pump. I asked him if I
should get off the main road and find a different way to
my sister's because every time I put on the brake, it
stalls out, and believe me you don't want to be sitting
still in the driving lane at a green light on 19 in that traf-
fic. He said, "No, stay on the main road cause I'll get lost
and no one at my sister's will be able to find me." True.
This is a good point. He said, "Just drive it and stop at
the first Ford dealer you see." I said, "okay." Fortunate-
ly, there was a dealership just a few miles down the road
in Spring Hill. I slowly patted and rolled into it. It is now,
1 p.m. The man says, "Well ma'am, the diagnostic check
is $99.95." I'm thinking if Kevin was here, he would open
the hood and listen and look and probably know, what it
is; I said, "Okay I'm not going anywhere anyway" An
hour later, the man comes out and tells me about vacu-
ums, hoses, battery.terminals, filters etc. and estimates
$304. Okay, do it. Thirty minutes later he comes back and
says $588. Okay, do it. Now, I'm calling Kevin. He's
yelling, "Well, what are they doing?" I gave him a run
down of what I understood of it. He says, "okay" Here
comes that man again, "Ma'am, it's 4:45 now and we
close in about an hour, and you need a fuel pump." I'm
thinking that's what my husband told me and I told you
four hours ago: Now the bill is up to $780 and it won't be
ready until mid-morning Monday I said, "I'm only here
for the weekend, I was going home on Sunday" "Well, we
will see what we can do. Is there someone who can pick
you up and we'll call you when it's ready?" I'm thinking,
sure, I'll just call my husband he's only 1,500 miles away
But, I said I'll try to call my sister who is probably in the
middle of food prep for her daughter's shower and is
about 35 minutes away After arriving at my sister's an-
other hour or so later, I called Kevin to give him the
news that I still have no vehicle and the bill is about $800
now. I had to leave him a message to call me, which he
didn't call me back until the morning. An hour after his
call, I picked up my car and paid the bill $968 total and
told the man, "What upsets me is that this whole prob-
lem could have been taken care of by my husband in
front of an auto parts store for the price of the parts
alone, but he is 1,500 miles away"
Needless to say, I never did get my new tires, and yet
had to make the four-hour trip home on Sunday and pick
up Kevin in Jacksonville on Tuesday night, which also
will interfere with my newspaper deliveries.
The moral of this story you might say is, "Men, you
can't live with them and you can't live without them!"
Kevin, I am so lucky to have you and the last two weeks
has proven to me just how much I need you, and how
much I take you for granted each and every day I realize
now just how helpless I can be, and from now on I'll be
more careful about what I take for granted.
Kevin has always been my Mr. Fix It. I can't imagine
what my credit card bills would be if I had to pay for
changing oil, tires, and other car maintenance or fixing
my washer, dryer, stove, refrigerator, and other appli-
ances. Even simple electrical, plumbing, opening a jar,
moving heavy items, repairing the fence and the list
goes on.
Due to the stressful week, I did have this column
written, but not typed and turned in for Friday April 18
deadline. I've always said things happen in threes so I


was walking on eggshells worrying about number three,
well late Thursday evening April 17th (early Friday
morning) my son Kevin was seriously injured in an
ATV accident. I'm convinced that was number three.
Due to the accident, I changed my column for last
week the 25th, to give an update on his condition at the
time. He had the surgery on Monday the 28th to have a
plate put in his left collarbone area. He is at home now
and doing very well. Thank you everyone for your phone
calls, concerns and prayers.
See you next Week!!

May Is National High Blood

Pressure Education Month
May is National High Blood Pressure Education
Month and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Insti-
tute encourage all Americans to be aware of the need to
keep a check on your blood pressure to reduce your risk
:of several chronic diseases. The message from NHLBI
"Prevent and Control High Blood Pressure: Mission
Possible." This means it's time to take action and find
out what your blood pressure numbers are, what they
mean, and what to do to prevent or control this all too
common condition.
NHBLI warns that high blood pressure is a danger-
ous condition. You usually don't have any symptoms, so
you may not even know you have it. It can lead to heart
disease, stroke, and kidney disease which are ranked
1st, 3rd and 9th among the leading causes of death in the
U.S.
The good news is that high blood pressure can be
prevented, and if your blood pressure is high, it can be
-controlled. NHLBL suggest you make a few lifestyle
changes which include:
* If your weight is high for your height, work in los-
ing weight, and work on maintaining a healthy weight.
* Become more physically active - walk, ride a bike, or
yard work are all example of physical activities. The
U.S. Dietary Guidelines now recommends that.you get at
least 30 minutes of physical activity each day
* Follow a healthy eating plan. If you aren't sure how
to begin, contact the Extension office for fact sheets to
get you on the right track.
* Eat less salt and sodium. Any seasoning with the
word "salt" in it needs to be eliminated from your food
preparation. This means switching to herbs and spices
to season the food you eat. An example would be to use
garlic powder instead of garlic salt.
* Research has shown that a healthy eating plan
called DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension)
can reduce your chances of developing high blood pres-
sure and it has positive results in lowering blood pres-
sure. A detailed fact sheet with details of the DASH diet
can be downloaded from the NHBLI's website. The plan
emphasizes fresh fruits, fresh vegetables and low fat
dairy productS and is imi&deraft 'ihtobtal fat and low in
saturated fat, and cholesterol. It also includes whole
grains, poultry, fish and nuts. There are many eating
strategies to help reduce your salt and sodium intake.'
Of course, you can get fact sheets on healthful eat-,
ing and reducing fat and sodium in your diet by con-
tacting the Madison County Extension Office. Call or
stop by the office for your free copies.

until its first meeting are
Thelma Thompson, Presi-
dent; Mike Kirkland, Trea-
surer; and Ernestine Kin-
sey, Trustee.
The town council approved the
idea (by Thompson) of founding the
library and agreed to pay insurance
and utilities. All labor and books
were donated. Mike Kirkland, with
help from wife Janice, painted, and
put down carpet (which he donated)
and built shelves. Cherry Farms do-
nated paint; Sherrod Lumber Com-
pany of Greenville gave lumber for
shelves. Several people have given
books.
The library is especially grate-
ful to Marcus Cherry for a large do-
nation of books from the Old Book-
store. Attorney Cary Hardee gave of
'his time and expertise to draw up
organizational papers.
Most important was the dona-
tion of a building by Simon Kinsey
Without a home the library would
not have been possible. Located be-
hind the old Kinsey barbershop, the
library will be open afternoons ap-
proximately from 2 until 5:30 p.m.
When more volunteers are found to
help, hours will be extended.
Thompson is temporary librarian.

Thompson Thanks All Who,
Helped Make Lee Political Rally
A Success
Dear Editor:
The Lee Homecoming Day Com-
mittee expresses its sincere thanks
to all who helped to make the politi-
cal rally on July 11 a success.
Though attendance was a little less
than expected due to' the intense
heat, the number was appreciably
high.
We are really indebted to all of
the candidates who 'broiled' them-
selves While awaiting their turn at
the podium (just a preview of the
'hot seat' if they win!). Almost all lo-
cal candidates were present as well
as many regional ones including
Rep.Randy Mackey - we really ap-
preciate his interest in our little
town - Will Irby from Chiefland,

ence in his schedule.
We received many compliments
on our spaghetti dinners and on our
choice of entertainment. Singer
Darrell Meadows received every-
one's vote! We especially thank all of
the fine cooks who donated cakes
for the event and all of the great vol-
unteers who had the thankless job
of cooking, serving and cleaning up,
thereby missing almost all of the
speeches and entertainment. We'
also sincerely thank' Hardee manag-
er Mary Ann Rodgers for the paper
goods. We wish we could have allot-
ted more time for the candidates
whose speeches, by the way, were
great-maybe because they were
brief !-but we had so many!
In conclusion, we thank all of
the above as well as all who attend-
ed. We especially thank Darrell for
refusing his check as his contribu-
tion to our pavilion. You all made'
our first fund-raising effort a suc-'
cess.

local & Regional Crimc


Former Paramedic Pleads Guilty To Workers' Compensation Fraud


Florida League of
Cities Special Investiga-
tion Unit program con-
tinues to crackdown on
workers' compensation
fraud
Jamie Kiefner, a for-
mer paramedic with
Lealman Fire and Res-
cue, pled guilty to work-
ers' compensation fraud
on April, 8, 2008, was sen-
tenced to 10 years proba-
tion, and ordered to pay
$48,000 in restitution to
the Florida League of
Cities. Kiefner was ac-


caused of providing false
information and working
while receiving worker's
compensation benefits.
The conviction/arrest
resulted from a referral
by the Florida League of
Cities Special Investiga-
tion Unit (SIU) to the Di-
vision of Insurance
Fraud and prosecuted by
the Office of Bernie Mc-
Cabe, State Attorney..
The Florida League of
Cities is committed to
fighting fraud because
the Department of Finan-


cial Services estimates
that Florida's residents
pay an additional $1,400
in insurance premiums
annually due to fraud.
"We are very excited
about the exemplary
work of the SIU," says
Village of Royal Palm
Beach Mayor, David A.
Lodwick, Chairman of
the Board for the Florida
Municipal Insurance
Trust (FMIT). "Workers'


compensation is a neces-
sary protection provided
by employers and is re-
lied upon by thousands
of injured Floridians to
cover their medical ex-
penses and to help offset
their lost wages. But
when people lie about in-
juries, pad their insur-
ance claims or otherwise
defraud the workers'
compensation program it
amounts to theft and it


hurts those folks who re-
ally need the money."
Since its inception in
1999, the SIU has identi-
fied, investigated and re-
ported numerous poten-
tial cases of suspected
insurance fraud, abuses
and non-existent injuries
to the state's Division of
Insurance Fraud (DIF).
Its work has, among oth-
er accomplishments, led
to 38 arrests and 30 pleas


and convictions, with
cost savings totaling over
$4.2 million.
The Florida League
of Cities, Inc., is the offi-
cial organization of the
412 municipal govern-
ments (cities, towns, vil-
lages and chartered
counties) in Florida, de-
signed and established to
meet and serve the needs
of Florida's municipal
officials.


Registered Nurse Pleads No

Contest To Using Hospice


Job To Obtain Narcotics
Attorney General Bill McCollum announced that a
Gadsden County woman was sentenced to four months
in jail followed by five years of probation after she
pleaded no contest to charges that she abused her job at
Big Bend Hospice of Gadsden County to fraudulently
obtain controlled substances. Donna Cain Gatch pled no
contest to 12 counts of fraudulently obtaining controlled
substances and one count of grand theft. Gatch was also
ordered to pay restitution to Big Bend Hospice, costs of
investigation, court costs, and fines.
Gatch, 56, was arrested in October after investiga-
tors with the Diversion Response Team determined she
was using her patients' names to obtain more' than 50
unauthorized controlled substances prescriptions. After
phoning in the fraudulent prescriptions, Gatch person-
ally picked up the prescriptions and allowed the phar-
macies to charge Big Bend Hospice for the cost.
Gatch was prosecuted by attorneys for the Attorney
General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit who were spe-
cially designated for the case by the State Attorney's Of-
fice for the Second Judicial Circuit. The Diversion Re-
sponse Team is a task force of agencies formed to com-
bat illegal trade in pharmaceutical drugs. Participating
agencies incjlue .the ,Attorn:y General's Office, the
Florida Department-of. Law Enforcement, the Florida
Department of Health, and the U. S. Drug Enforcement
Administration.

Praise His wondrous name! What a beautiful gift
Madison First's homecoming celebration was to the
Lord. The two day commemoration began on Saturday
by opening the 1898 sanctuary to visitors. Sunday morn-
ing the sanctuary was full of not only friends and fami-
ly, but joy and passion for the Lord. Service began with
Amy Robinson beautifully singing "Hbre's my trophies.
here's my crown." Deacon of the week was Doug Finney
who led our offertory prayer. During the offering the or-
chestra played an upbeat medley that was followed by
standing ovations from the Choir. Then the Chancel
Choir was then repaid by receiving a standing ovation
for their "Headin' Home Medley."
Pastor Ferrell began his "Journey Through the
Bible" in Matthew 4:18-22 and later visited Hebrews 11:1
and 6. His sermon was based around the new movie
"Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian." He began by
explaining the author of the chronicles, C.S. Lewis', life;
starting with his fall to Atheism after the death of his
mother and his later rise to Christianity when becoming
part of a group of Christian writers. He related this to
Break in Moments in our lives. He stated, "A break in
moment is unexpected, unforgettable, perspective
changing, purpose changing, and more common than
you think."
On May 2, there will be a Men's Rally at Picket Lake.
Keynote speaker will be Eddie Gandy, and music will be
by Mark Shaw. There will be a $10 BBQ dinner begin-
ning at 6 p.m. The program begins at 7 p.m. May 8th
there will be a Health Expo sponsored by the SAM
group. It will be in Madison Firsts Fellowship Hall from
9 a.m. - 4 p.m. There will be lifeline screenings, blood
pressure checks, hearing tests, blood sugar tests, and a
vision test. The bloodmobile from Tallahassee will be.
there at 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Sponsors are still needed for the
Picket Lake children's camp, the cost is $75/camper.
The Relay for Life walk-a-thon will be held on Friday
and Saturday, May 2nd-3rd, at Boothill Stadium.
Our prayers go out to all those participating in the
activities for Relay for Life, and also the survivors for
which it is held. Life is a gift and every breath we take is
a blessing from God. Never take one moment of your life
for granted, every trouble you face is an opportunity to
learn something new. The knowledge we receive in life
isn't all from a classroom, "All learning begins in the
imagination." How to walk with the Lord is the most im-
portant lesson we can ever learn in life.

Madison Academy Students




Meet Their Legislator


On Tuesday April 15th, a group
of fifth grade students from Madi-
son Academy, along with Estella
Gray, Public Affairs Specialist with
the Florida League of Cities, visited
the Capitol to get a glimpse of the
governmental process.
The students met with Rep., Will
Kendrick (R-Carrabelle) and pre-
sented 'him with a plague that
thanked him for his years of ":bring-
ing Florida government to -life for
students of Madison Academy."


Rep. Kendrick was honored to
meet with the students and pleased
to see the excitement when they
learned, they were meeting in the
House Chamber.
Mayor Myra Valentine also at-
tended as she has done in past years.
She has been a long time partner in
accompanying these students as
they lean about the Legislative
process. ,

the Florida House of Representa-


tives, Rep. Kendrick serves on the

relation between education and the

lawmakers of Florida," Kendrick
continued.

Contrary to popular be-
lief, Mother's Day was-not
conceived and fine-tuned in
the boardroom of Hall-
mark. The earliest tributes
to mothers date back to the
annual spring festival the
Greeks dedicated to Rhea,
the mother of many deities,
and to the offerings ancient
Romans made to their
Great Mother of Gods, Cy-
bele. Christians celebrated
this festival, on. the fourth
Sunday in Lent,in honor of
Mary, mother of Christ. In
England this holiday was
expanded -to include all
mothers and was called
Mothering Sunday.
In the United States,
Mother's Day started near-
ly 150 years ago, when
Anna Jarvis, an Appalachi-
an homemaker, organized a
day to raise awareness of
poor health conditions in
her community, a cause she
believed would be best ad-
vocated by mothers. She
called it "Mother's Work
Day"
Fifteen years later, Ju-
lia Ward Howe, a Boston
poet, pacifist, suffragist,
and author of the lyrics to
the "Battle Hymn of the Re-
public," organized a day en-'
couraging mothers to rally
for peace, since she be-
lieved they bore the loss of
human life more harshly
than anyone else.


In 1905 when Anna
Jarvis died, her daughter,
also named Anna, began a
campaign to memorialize
the life work of her mother.
Legend has it that young
Anna remembered a Sun-
day school lesson that her
mother gave in which she
said, "I hope and pray that
someone, sometime, will
found a memorial mother's
day There are many days
for men, but none for moth-
ers,"-
Anna began to lobby
prominent businessmen
like John Wannamaker,
and politicians including
Presidents Taft and Roo-
sevelt to support her cam-
paign to create a special
day to honor mothers. At
one of the first services or-
ganized to celebrate Anna's
mother in 1908, at her
church in West Virginia,
Anna handed out her moth-
er's favorite flower, the
white carnation. Five years
later, the House of Repre-
sentatives adopted a resolu-
tion calling for officials of.
the federal government to
wear white carnations on
Mother's Day. In 1914
Anna's hard work paid off
when Woodrow Wilson
signed a bill recognizing
Mother's Day as a national
holiday.
At first, people observed


iviuers Davy uy auenuing it. in 9z3 sne iuea a lawsuit
church, writing letters to to stop a Mother's Day festi-
their mothers, and eventu- val, and was even arrested
ally, by sending cards, pre- for disturbing the peace at

Turkeys Accused



Of Fowl Play
For many years, some hunters have blamed wild
turkeys for devastating quail populations by eating
quail eggs and chicks.
Quail populations in some regions have declined
over the last two decades while wild turkey populations
have dramatically increased at the same time. but there
is no scientific data that points to turkeys as the cul-
prits.
Habitat is one link between the rise of turkey popu-
lations and the fall of quail populations across the na-
tion.
Quail thrive in early growth habitat, which is domi-
nated by small, food-bearing shrubs, weeds and grasses
that provide plenty of ground cover for the small birds
to avoid predators.
Wild turkeys, in contrast, are more opportunistic
and use all habitat types from early successional wood-
lands and prairies to older, more mature forests.
Currently, the NWTF is involved in numerous con-
servation projects nationwide, including conducting
prescribed fires, managing longleaf pine plantations
and creating watering spots for wilillife that 'will help
create the right habitat for both quail and wild turkeys.


Red Snapper Sport Season

To Reopen In Florida's Gulf

Waters - With Changes
The recreational red snapper fishing season in Flori-
da waters in the Gulf of Mexico reopened on April 15
and will remain open until Nov. 1. Florida waters ex-
tend nine nautical miles from shore in the Gulf.
While Florida's Gulf red snapper season is opening
as usual this year, there have been some recent, signifi-
cant changes to Gulf red snapper regulations.
The red snapper bag limit for sport anglers in the
Gulf has been lowered from four fish daily per person to
two fish per person, and the captain and crew of for-hire
vessels in the Gulf may not keep the recreational bag
limit.
In addition, the recreational red snapper fishing sea-
son in Gulf federal waters has changed and will now
open on June 1 and close on Aug. 5. Gulf federal waters
extend well offshore beyond state waters.
The minimum harvest size for recreational red
snapper in the Gulf remains unchanged at 16 inches to-
tal length.
More information about red snapper management
and regulations is available online at
My FWC.cominmarine/.

FWC Chairman Says Bald Eagle



Rebound Successful


In Florida
Rodney Barreto, the chairman
of the Florida. Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC),
applauds the work done with the
bald eagle's increasing population
in Florida.
"This is a historic occasion,"
Barreto said. "The bald eagle is an
icon of imperiled species protec-
tion, and conservation efforts for
the species have been a success sto-
ry that reflects great credit on agen-
cies and people who worked tire-
lessly to make it happen. Good
news is hard to come by sometimes,
when we're dealing with an imper-
iled species, but we've all earned
the right to celebrate a victory to-
day."
Recently, the FWC approved a fi-
nal bald eagle management plan
and removed the bald eagle from
the imperiled species list.
Previously, the FWC classified


the bald eagle as a threatened
species on the state list, but the
change is consistent with the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service's decision
to remove the species from the fed-
eral list last August.
Robin Boughton, FWC bald ea-
gle management plan leader, said
the comeback of the beloved bird
has been astounding all over the
United States, but in Florida in par-
ticular.
"Surveys found only 88 active
nests in Florida when monitoring
began in 1973," Boughton said. "In
2007, more than 1,100 active nests
were counted. That's a tremendous
increase."
The bald eagle management
plan will serve as a conservation
blueprint to ensure the eagle con-
tinues to thrive in Florida. The
Commission also approved a bald
eagle rule and a permitting frame-


work that will continue to protect
the bald eagle in Florida.
"The goal of the plan is to main-
tain a stable or increasing bald ea-
gle population throughout the state
in perpetuity," Boughton said. "To
achieve this goal, the plan calls for
conservation actions, such as land
management, habitat acquisition,
private land incentives, pqblic out-
reach aiid the continued oqnitor-
ing of eagle nests and territories."
In addition, the bald eagle will
remain protected by the federal
Bald and Golden Eagle Protection
Act, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act
and the state bald eagle rule pro-
posed in the plan.


FWC Passes Gopher Tortoise Permit Guidelines


' The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC)
Wednesday approved the
Gopher Tortoise Permit-
ting Guidelines, the first
major step in launching
the gopher tortoise man-
agement plan approved by
the Commission last Sep-
tember. The FWC reclassi-
fied the gopher tortoise to
a threatened species last
year, and the management
plan serves as a blueprint
to conserve the species.
This 62-page document
is a framework for helping
Florida meet the manage-
ment plan objective of de-
creasing gopher tortoise
mortality on lands pro-
posed for development.
The guidelines are intend-
ed to be a single source for
all policies and protocols
associated with the FWC's
gopher tortoise permitting
system.
Under the permitting
guidelines, gopher tortois-
es must be relocated out of
harm's way by an autho-
rized agent, who will ob-


tain a permit from the
FWC. All permits will re-
quire some type of mitiga-
tion contribution - in the
past, some permits were at
no cost.
The new permitting
system is designed to cre-
ate incentives for those
who relocate gopher tor-
toises to protected land
and thereby provide high-
er conservation value for
the tortoises. In other
words, those permit hold-
ers who move tortoises to'


protected, high-qualit
managed habitat, will coi
tribute the least for pe:
mits. That's because th
higher quality the habitat
the better chance the to:
toises will have to perpetu
ate the species, which i
the goal of the manage
ment plan.
The permitting system
also is designed to hel
provide incentives t
landowners to manag
their land for gopher tor
toises and other native
wildlife species.
Landowners who do s
may qualify for havin
their land certified an
permitted as protected nr


cipient sites eligible for re-
ceiving displaced gopher
tortoises.
The Gopher Tortoise
Permitting Guidelines
may be edited and updated
as needed in the future.
Proposed changes will be
reviewed annually by an
FWC standing team and a
public stakeholder adviso-
ry group. All changes re-
quire - approval from the
FWC executive director,
who will coordinate with
the FWC chairman to de-
termine when changes to
these guidelines are sub-
y, stantive and warrant full
n- review by FWC commis-
r- sioners.

Used cars to be sold for as low as


$5.00 Saturday, May 3rd!

Thomasville, GA - Dreams of buying your own vehicle will come true for
some lucky people on Saturday, May 3rd. -The area's largest and most
successful Toyota dealer will be selling used cars for as low as $5. Many
others will also be available at unheard of savings!
Billy Clements, of Thomasville Toyota said "Due to the success of our
new Toyota sales, our preowned department is flooded, and Toyota is still
sending us a very large inventory to keep us stocked on new Toyotas".
The sale begins at 9 A.M. on the Thomasville Toyota property, located at
14724 US 19 south in Thomasville.
The $5 dollar sale is to kick off the clearance of every new and used car
on the lot. Prices will be slashed on the scene Saturday morning at 10:00
A.M. There will be another slasher around 2:00 P.M. The last time the
slashed will walk the lot is at 4:00 RM. Customers are advised to arrive
early to get the car they want. All Automobiles are on a first come first
served basis.
Customers will relax behind the wheel until the "Price Slasher" comes
out to mark the one time clearance price on the windshield.
.- Those sitting-in the car when.the "slasher" comes out, get to buy the
car at the radically reduced price, as low as $5, but all will be marked
thousands below normal. Appraisers will be on hand to give absolute top
dollar for your trade.
We want to give our friends and neighbors a chance to save money
rather than take these cars off to a "dealers only" sale. During this event,
most cars will be sold for thousands below Kelly Blue Book value.
"Everyone interested in a used car will find a vehicle just right for their
budget, even if it is only five dollars" according to used car manager
Dave Broadway. "All applications will be accepted and all application fees
will be waived during this sale, even if you think you do not qualify for
Y credit, our Sphial FinanceDbepartfrrnt promises- that they will fight _
get you the car you deserve." Stated Dave.
ThomaSville Toyota is famous for its, ph..psophy of guaranteeing the
lowest price in South Georgia and North Florida. They're loaded with
quality preowned cars and they need to be sold quickly, regardless of the
profit margin. "When we built this facility, we did not realize that we
would have people bringing trade-ins from 150 mile radiuses to deal with
us. We have simply run out of room, and must sell the used cars to make
room for our new Toyotas" exclaimed Lee Graham, Sales manager at
Thomasville Toyota.
This event is one day only, and parking is limited, so be sure to arrive
early. The doors open at 9:00 A.M. For more information, call the friendly
folks at Thomasville Toyota at 229-228-0555 or visit them online at
www.ThomasvilleToyota.com
