EDITORIAL COMMENT

Board Decision Leaves NFCC Community Stunned


Grosskopf Named NFCC Interim President


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
In a community as close as that
served by North Florida Community
College, someone is bound to get hurt
when decisions are required to choose
among its sons and daughters, especial-
ly when that se-
lection is for the
next president
of NFCC. How-
ever, when the
process con-
cludes in befud-
dled gridlock,
with one board
member ram-
bling on for five
minutes about
her lack of in-
sight regarding
the real needs

NFCC Interim President tion, as though
she hasn't had
months to investigate the institution she
has long been charged to oversee, the
mood in the room collapsed, with dozens
in attendance shaking their heads in
disbelief to her commentary.
The straw that broke the camel's
back though came when theboard hand-
ed the college over to an interim presi-
dent that wasn't even among the presi-
dential candidates being considered and

four exceptional candidates that were
included in the extensive review
process, namely Clyde Cruce, Brian
O'Connell, Harry Rotter and Jessica
Webb? These proven professionals ex-
hibited credentials that are arguably
equal, or based on many insider's opin-
ions even greater, than that brought to
the table by exiting President Morris
Steen. And again, intending no criti-


cism of Grosskopf's potential, these four
candidates had success stories and man-
agement experience, especially in those
areas determined to be critical to the fu-
ture of NFCC. In fact, this paper recent-
ly ran a report of a leadership training
achievement Grosskopf recently com-
pleted. However, to use an analogy men-

places with fellow board member Albert
Thomas so he could introduce a motion
to add Boatright back into the process.
The motion, however, did not carry.
When asked why he would second

stakeholders that comprised the selec-
tion committee, a group the board itself
had empowered, literally made up of an
exceptional balance of faculty and com-
munity, Maultsby stated that Boatright

NFCC Audit Filled

With Red Flags
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On March 26, the Auditor General
for the State of Florida issued report
No. 2008-143, a Financial Audit of
North Florida Community College, for
the Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2007.
The document contains a variety of
statements and summaries, including a
first-page section titled "Material
Weakness." This section heading de-
notes that the college's financial state-
ments contained errors or omissions
significant to the degree that the state
auditor wrote the following recommen-
dation in the audit:
'"The College should establish ade-
quate controls over financial reporting
to ensure the amounts reported on the
financial statements are accurate and
complete, and fairly stated in accor-
dance with GAAP (generally accepted
accounting principles)."
The report also noted that "When
financial statements are not accurately
prepared, the College's Board of
Trustees, management, and other
users of the financial statements are
without a proper basis for evaluating
College operations and for assessing
the College's financial condition."
During discussion with NFCC
Chief Business Officer Amelia Mulkey
and President Morris Steen regarding
the several negative aspects of the au-
dit, both stated that those areas of con-
cern would turn around over the next
few years just as more large capital
outlays were completed. They noted
that the correction regarding a three
million dollar entry related to money
that comes from the Public Education
Capital Outlay (PECO) trust fund
weakened the current financial state-
ments but was simply a bookkeeping
issue that would reverse and smooth
out in the future.
They further noted that the condi-
tion was not a result of any pre-
ventable expenses, overbuilding, falter-
ing enrollment, expensive and unprof-
itable new programs, staff salaries or
even the slightest degree of financial
mismanagement. Still, state account-
ing reports are carefully established
and when PECO projects go live they
shift to general funding, meaning that
the spike in costs associated with them
can be devastating to the budget if not
managed properly And when compar-
isons with other struggling schools
were made, no one explained why
Chipola, a community college west of
Tallahassee often compared to NFCC,
was not undergoing these same drastic
changes and had athletic programs
that were flourishing.
Regarding details of the audit, the
first clear indication of financial con-
cern in the report was the trend to less
profitability The "Loss Before Other
Revenues, Expenses, Gains, or Losses"
is a long-named number more com-
monly known as "The Bottom Line,"
which can be show Income or Loss. It
takes into account Operating Rev-
enues, Non-Operating Revenues and
Expenses.
Schools receive state appropria-
tions in addition to revenue items like.
tuition and grants, which are included
in this figure. There are additional
monies that can come into the College
as well in the form of gifts and other
capital contributions, but in an apples-
to-apples comparison, it is the basic
bottom line.
The year-to-year comparison is also
important. Unfortunately, in both in-
stances, the loss and the year-to-year
differences, the numbers are worri-
some. The 2006 loss was $503,000 and,
in 2007, the loss expanded to $1,186,000.
Again, these numbers alone might
simply identify a period of transition
and therefore require further investi-
gation to get at overall financial
strength. In order to get a quick snap-
shot of financial strength, an indicator
known as the Current Ratio can be em-
ployed to develop that picture.
The Current Ratio is a financial ra-
tio lpat measures whether or not an or-

Oieiwpoiots & Opinions


Friday, May 23, 2008


Due to an error, the photos of Chestin Hardin,
Bradley Hagan and Dennis Green were switched in the
Wednesday, May 21, Madison County Carrier We of-
fer our sincerest apologies.


People's Opinions Of

Me And Of Themselves
I do not have a lot of patience. That is one of the rea-
sons that I don't fish anymore and one of the reasons
that I don't like to play chess. Many times, I get started
on a project and get frustrated with myself because I
don't finish it. Maybe I do need to slow down and dip a
hook in the water or play chess. There's not enough ex-
citement for me there, though.
If you have ever seen me with my sister, Abbie, you
can tell that I have a lot of patience with her. I wish that
I had that kind of patience with everyone but not every-
one is mentally challenged like Abbie. When I was still
in school, people would see my patience with my sister
and tell me that I should work with mentally challenged
people, but, even then, I knew that I could not do it. Ab-
bie may be mentally challenged, but she is my sister. You
give your immediate family more breaks than you would
others because you love them just a little more. I was
afraid that I wouldn't be as patient and understanding
with others in Abbie's condition as I was with Abbie.
I will confess that I am glad that I don't work with
the children in church. I worked with teenagers before
at church and it was no picnic. I did grow, however, be-
cause of that experience and one of the things that I
have learned is that children, as they grow up, need en-
couragement. I felt bad the other day when I didn't brag
on one of the teens at church (Ethan Phillips) who got
two tackles in last Friday night's maroon and silver
game. Great job, Ethan! A couple of weeks ago, I put two
of the teenagers up to some good-natured mischief and
then I felt really bad about it. I called the mother of one
of the teenagers (she was the grandmother of the other)
and apologized. I REALLY didn't think they would fol-
low through and do it.
Last Saturday night, I lost my ever-impatient temper
and blew my top as I was trying to help someone keep
from getting in trouble. I realize that I could have han-
dled the situation better and feelings might not have
been hurt.
I am still growing myself and I would ask that my
readers not pray for me to have patience because the
Bible says, "tribulation, worketh patience." Just pray
that I have a softer tongue and an understanding heart.
I need to remember that others have feelings them-
selves and that words that I say have a lot of power and
can mold people's opinions not only of me, but of them-
selves!

Congratulations,

Caleb
I am on vacation this week, so I am dedicating my
column space to a terrific young man, my nephew, Caleb
Holden. Caleb's parents Arliegh and Twanna Holden are
breathing a sigh of relief this week as Caleb their
youngest, is graduating.
Even though the pranks of a few other children at
Madison County High School on February 15th caused
some unexpected life-altering problems for him, he re-
mained headstrong and determined to earn his diploma,
and he never quit trying. He was denied the opportunity
to attend his Senior Prom and other senior privileges
and still stands proud as a Graduating Senior of the
Class of 2008. As we all know, he earned his diploma the
same as all of the other students in Madison County
His parents, family and friends are proud of his ac-
complishments even through the upsetting circum-
stances.
I know the sense of Love and Pride his mother,
Twanna, is experiencing this week completing an im-
portant cycle in her life knowing that both of her boys
have graduated now. As it is the same wonderful feeling
that I felt when my youngest son Christopher graduated.
It truly is a mother's dream come true.
Congratulations, Caleb, on this important accom-
plishment in your life! You should be proud! We all love
you and pray that your life in the "real world" is nothing
but great! Class of 2008!

Think Food Safety

When Cooking Outdoors
This weekend marks Memorial Day and believe it or
not it's the beginning of summer. With summer come the
season of grilling and backyard cookouts. Meals cooked
outdoors always increase during the summer months and
the variety of food people put on the grill seems to be ex-
panding. With all of the food preparation in summer tem-
peratures, you need to be aware of safe food handling prac-
tices.
Backyard chefs don't think about it, but in recent
years, there has been an increase of outbreaks in food poi-
soning during the summer months. Bacteria that cause
food poisoning is invisible, odorless and tasteless; summer
temperatures only increase the potential population ex-
plosion. Since it is not appetizing to think about food in-
vaders like E. coli, clostridium perfringens or salmonella,
using safe" food handling methods will drastically reduce
your chances of exposing your family and friends to food
borne illness.
Marinate meats in a glass dish in the refrigerator, not
at room temperature on the countertop. If you plan to use
some of the marinade for basting or a dip, reserve a por-
tion before you put raw meat into it. Bacteria from raw
meat will contaminate the liquid and it should be discard-
ed after the marinating time is over.
Coals should be very hot before food is placed on the
grill for cooking. A hot grill will assure you that food is
cooked at a high enough temperature to destroy bacteria.
It takes 30 minutes or longer before coals are hot enough;
they should appear to have a light coating of ash for the
highest temperature.
Meat should be thoroughly cooked. The best way to
check for doneness is to use a meat thermometer; meat
should be cooked to internal temperature of 160 � F and
poultry should reach 1800 E If you don't have a ther-
mometer, visually check by cutting into the meat to be sure
the juices are clear and not.pink in color. To avoid flare-ups
and charred food, remove visible fat from meat.
Put cooked foods on a clean plate that wasn't used to
hold raw meat or poultry Cooking food destroys bacteria,
but if you put it back on the same plate you just covered it
with bacteria again. Food safety experts call this cross
contamination and it is sure to cause food borne illness.
Perishable foods need to be served, hot off the grill.
Most food safety expert's advice food should be eaten with-
in two hours. If you are eating outdoors, keep in mind
warm temperatures reduce that time to one hour. Left-
overs should be promptly divided into small containers
and placed in the refrigerator.
Simple changes in the way you prepare and serve your
backyard barbeque will greatly reduce your risk for food
borne illness. For more information on food safety, contact
the Madison County Extension Service.

The following was writ-
ten to the Florida League of
Cities a few years ago and it
is just as appropriate today:

The first thing one sees
on entering the office of
the Town of Lee Manager
Cheryl Archambault is a
broad smile of welcome -
and that smile is sincere -
Cheryl never dons a polite
mask. Whether the visitor
is an important official, a
resident with a question, a
council member needing
more information concern-
ing his or her agenda, or
someone intent on unload-
ing the chip from his shoul-
der onto hers, Cheryl han-
dles each one with a profes-
sionalism underlain with
understanding, sympathy
if appropriate and her wide
- ranging knowledge of
every facet of what her po-
sition entails. Though born
a northerner, Cheryl pos-
sesses the tact, warmth and
charm traditionally attrib-
uted to southern gentry.
Cheryl began the latest
part of her career with the
Town of Lee eight years
ago as a clerk but quickly
advanced to her current po-
sition. As Manager, she has
been instrumental to the
town's becoming quite an
asset to Madison County.
She has, in the last few
years, been a driving force
in the newly developed
Madison County Develop-
ment Council, serving
terms both as president
and as treasurer of the or-
ganization. She still serves
on its board of directors.
Cheryl also worked
tirelessly in the town's ef-
fort to obtaini the old Lee
school property when a
new school was built here -
her vision was to turn the
building into a business in-
cubator. The building and
its extensive grounds had
been neglected. Through
her guidance, most of the
renovation has been ac-
complished and tenants are
in residence in about two
thirds of the available
space- One of those is
Dawn's Kinder Acadamy
which seems so appropri-
ate as children's laughter
rings out on the former
school grounds. The gym is
being used by local church-
es for youth basketball
games. The town's coffers
grow as a result of tenant
occupancy which helps to
pay for further renovation
and upkeep. Both Cheryl
and Maintenance Director
Mike Register took classes
in prison inmate supervi-
sion and help from this
source is invaluable,
Cheryl has helped to
keep the Lee Volunteer Fire
Department the best in the
county by obtaining grants

for them - she learned how
to write grants after becom-
ing town manager and has
used'that knowledge to ob-
tain financing for several
town projects. Approxi-
mately four years ago, the
town's two wells responded
poorly to testing. Suwan-
nee River Water Manage-
ment (SRWM) decreed that
new ones were needed so
again Cheryl was instru-
mental in obtaining 60
acres in an approved area
on which to place two new.
wells thus adding to the
town's physical growth, 47
of those acres are now
planted in pines (for future
income) and oaks along na-
ture trails. The remaining
acreage was reserved for a
park and for soccer fields.
This entire prelude is
great but what has Cheryl
accomplished during the
past year which qualifies
her as a contestant for the
Florida League of Cities
Town Manager of the Year?
First, several of the
above efforts have only
been coming to fruition
during this past year plus
the following:
During the past year,
the five soccer fields (for
varied age levels) and a
concession stand were com-
pleted, picnic tables and
benches purchased, grills
installed and playground
equipment erected. Due
primarily to Cheryl's. hard
work and guidance, and


three federal and state
grants, Lee is now the
proud owner of the 60 acre
Ben Blair Park which will
be dedicated and opened to
the public in July Another
subdivision, Pine Trace
Acres, gave the town five
acres for a park when it
was annexed. It took longer
to obtain that development
grant but Cheryl never
gave up and a grant for
$75,000.00 to develop it has
been recently received.
This will be mainly a chil-
dren's park just a short way.
from the school.
During this year,
Cheryl has worked with the
Mayor and Town Council
in forming an Economic
Development Council
which enables the town to
purchase property for fu-
ture growth and income.
She is also working with
the Mayor to obtain willing,
annexation of residents
along the 3-mile. County
Road 255 between the town
and Interstate 10; has been
able to obtain donated
property for a lift station
for a waste water field; is
working with Madison
County Development Coun.-
cil (MCDC) toward for de-
velopment of our area of
the North Florida Corridor,
especially toward the goal
of a future venue for both
local and tourist events,.
such as concert halls,


Cheryl is presently
working with a volunteer
who is forming local youth
and church softball leagues
and has been fully involved
in the annexation of anoth-
er 78 acre subdivision
which the Council has just
approved and Leeward
Acres is now a signed,
sealed and delivered offi-
cial part of the "Little But
Proud" Town of Lee.
In addition to all of the
above, our talented town
manager still not only su-
pervises a staff of three
(each one of these deserves
his and her own stories)
does the town budget to the
satisfaction -even praises-
of its auditor, and oversees
the Lee Town Hall Com-
plex, which includes base-
ball, basketball and tennis
facilities, a pre-Civil War
era house and outbuild-
ings, the restoration of
which earned the town a
State of Florida Rural Com-
munity of the Year award,
a pavilion with facilities
for family and other events
and a playground and mak-
ing sure the town hall itself
is in order for the many

Amber Acree


Amber Acree is welcomed as the newest addi-
tion to the Greene Publishing family, joining the
staff as a graphic designer for the Madison
County Carrier and the Madison Enterprise
Recorder.
Originally from Lake Wales, Acree is a fourth-
generation Monticellian who recently moved to
Jefferson County, and is now in the process of
renovating in her grandmother's house. New to
both Madison and Jefferson Counties, Acree is
an old-school-rule morn mixed with modem
talents, with a twist of downhome southern
style.
Acree attended the Florida Technical College,
where she earned an A.S. in Computer-Aided
Drafting and Design before becoming a head
designer for a small retail shop. She then was
employed by Eckler's Industries in Titusville as


a graphic artist. Acree started' working for
Greene Publishing on March 5 of this year.
She and longtime love, Josh Treadwell, are
raising their young son, Cole, who will be
attending Aucilla Academy, with his first year
starting K-4 in August. Acree's eldest son,
Nathan, resides with his father in Dade City.
Said Acree when asked why she decided to
move to Monticello, "I just love the southern
hospitality. The people are so nice and friendly.
It feels good to get back to my roots. I love it
here."
Acree is looking forward to setting up her
home, getting her garden started and settling
in. Her creative eye is a wonderful addition to
the paper's staff and it is hoped that she and
her family will find themselves their private
slice of Heaven, here in North Florida.

Grosskopf


Cont. from page 1


was the only candidate in
the six-county selection
area that had managed a
budget and number of per-
sonnel as large as NFCC.
Several suggested this was
Maultsby and President
Morris Steen's intention
all along, although no
proof has been provided
for accusations that the ge-
ographic limit of the
search was intentional to
make the future promo-
tion of Boatright appear
democratic.
In order to learn more
about Boatright and expe-
rience firsthand the stel-
lar attributes he must pos-
sess for Maultsby and
Steen to push such an un-
popular personal agenda,
this reporter attempted to
speak to Boatwright, call-
ing his office and request-
ing a callback on five sepa-
rate occasions over a two-
week period. Boatwright
never called back. Later,
Maultsby said Boatright
might be laying low; also
stating Boatwright wasn't
seeking reelection as Su-
perintendent of Schools in
Suwannee County.
With the Boatwright
promotion failing, whe-
ther a Plan B was then de-
liberately contrived is un-
known, but at the same
time Boatright was being
promoted, Grosskopf was
also being touted by
Maultsby to serve as inter-
im president should no de-
cision be reached, a move
many considered a trans-
parent attempt to keep the
"Boatright or else" ma-
neuver alive. In fact,
Maultsby drafted an email
tol Grosskopf announcing
his intention to promote


Grosskopf to the board as
an interim president.
Paraphrasing several
community leaders that
have no conflicts of inter-
est in this episode but be-
lieve wholeheartedly that
the needs of the faculty,
staff, students and com-
munity are not being put
first and that the college is
on shaky ground at best:
"I was an outspoken
advocate for Morris Steen
when he became President
of NFCC, but over the last
few months he's become a
completely different per-
son. The way he demoted
Doug Brown, a little while
back, was bad enough, but
the sudden exit of Trish
Hinton (Steen's longtime
Public Information Offi-
cer) is dumbfounding. It
seems Grosskopf is bene-
fiting from being the only
one willing to play the
game with Morris. Why
else would someone who
was not even qualified for
presidential selection ac-
cording to the standards
discussed be considered to
run one of our county's
most important re-
sources," one local notable
explained. "I don't even
know who or what
Grosskopf is all about. He
wouldn't have ever passed
the selection committee"
"The dog and pony
show Morris (Steen),
Amelia (Mulkey) and John
(Grosskopf) put on last
month to startle the board
into eliminating the ath-
letic program was nothing
short of manipulation.
They told the board that it
would cause huge prob-
lems in the budgeting
process by taking another


month to consider all op-
tions, implying that the
numbers presented in an
elaborate PowerPoint pre-
sentation were absolute
and the deadline was im-
mediate. And yet, tonight,
(the May 20 meeting) they
reintroduced a revised list
of management and in-
structional contracts for
approval, representing a
dollar amount consider-
ably more than athletics.
In the end, the numbers
weren't firm and actually
came back from Tallahas-
see better than expected,"
another noted.
"NFCC is having prob-
lems from all the expenses
associated with
the programs and facili-
ties it has capitalized over
the last few years. While
Morris (Steen) is running
around bragging about all
the growth coming from
PECO (Public Education
Capital Outlay) funding,
he neglects to 'say that
once the projects are com-
pleted they must be sup-
ported by general funds.
The sad reality is that the
cost of maintaining these
facilities is crippling the
college, but worse is that
the programs aren't prof-
itable either," still another
insider added.
Brought in under
Brown only a few years
ago, who was then the VP
of Academic Affairs,
Grosskopf was invited to
expand his involvement
on the campus to include
an administrative role.
Garnering praise as an
English instructor at the
time, Grosskopf joined
Brown's team where he
was inexplicably bumped


up the ladder over Brown
in what insiders charac-
terize as practically
overnight. Each new posi-
tion acquired by
Grosskopf was not adver-
tised, as is customary,
even the final promotion
to VP.
No explanation was of-
fered in terms of why
Grosskopf's move over
Brown was best for faculty,
staff or student. In fact,
numerous faculty stated
how desperate they were
to speak out about it but
were afraid of reprisals
from Steen if they did, es-
pecially now, in light of
Hinton's and Athletic Di-
rector Dr. Steve Givens'
exit, the latter of which
was contrary to state-
ments made at the April 15
meeting. Hinton's exif
was unknown to three


nels.

4) Trustees should not

5) Trustees should not

Holcombe, Chancellor, Di-

know that the intended
checks and balances be-

fallen apart. After all, it's
the Madison economy and
community family that's
most exposed to the conse-
quences of breakdown.
Perhaps the most mov-
ing and revealing com-
ment came from an alum-
nus who was recently rec-
ognized during one of the
NFCC 50th Anniversary
celebrations. "I looked
around the Student Center
after the vote to approve
the interim president was
concluded and I thought
I'd seen happier faces at a
funeral. Practically speak-
ing, we have to find a way
to make sure the needs of
the many aren't circum-
vented by the actions of a
few or, in the case of the
board, the ignorance of a
few. I pray for a remedy
and a return to the excel-
lence and care that has
been lost and I urge every-
one to do the same. But we
also need to help our-
selves, so I also urge every-
one to call the Chancellor
and everyone with a stake
in the college."

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
During the regular meeting of April 28 at Madison
Lodge No. 11 F.&A.M., three candidates were raised to
Master Mason. In addition, Louis Demotsis was pre-
sented a perpetual membership on behalf of his wife
Dot, who is recently deceased and sorely missed by all,
as well as his son Tim and daughter Tina. -
Prior to the meeting, a delicious dinner was
served by the ladies of the Madison Order of the East-
ern Star. There were over 70 members in attendance


from lodges all over the region, including Ralph Miller,
the Past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Florida.
Candidates Ben Jones, David Jarvis and Michael
Curtis were conducted through the awesome ceremo-
ny, each visibly moved and humbled to be part of such
a rich tradition. By being raised to the sublime degree,
of Master Mason, they .join a vast brotherhood that
dates back centuries and is responsible for many of
the expressions that form the foundation of this great
nation.
Over time, the ceremonies and commitments that


accompany Freemasonry have often been misunder-
stood, especially in light of the conspiracy crazy me-
dia that has prevailed over the last few years. But as
any Master Mason will tell you, the process of becom-
ing a Mason doesn't involve compromising one's in-
tegrity or beliefs. On the contrary, it is arguably the
most intense character building experience a man can
undertake, particularly in terms of family and com-
munity.

have occurred since
then. Being true to
Clark fashion however,
the handout concludes

that opportunity exists
in adversity and that
bargains are often cre-

The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 7A


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Every summer, Madi-
son County faces the same
challenge. School is out
and parents are left
searching for daycare, and
activities-.in general, for
their children. In an effort
to address this critical
community need, the Lee
Town Council is pleased to
introduce the Building
Blocks Summer Camp:
Built on a collabo-
rative curriculum
sponsored by 4-H, the
first class will kick off
June 9. Located at the
Old Lee School gym,
the day camp offers af-
fordable, constructive,
educational, safe and
definitely fun activities
for children ages 6 to 12.
The program has very
convenient hours coincid-
ing with the workday,
opening at 7:30 a.m. and
closing at 5:30 p.m., Mon-
day through Friday.
"We wanted a place
that was fun for the kids of
course, but considering
the needs of the communi-
ty, we searched for a way
create a program that was
beneficial to the ongoing
needs of the child. When
we came together with
Heather Johnson at 4-H, it
all came together. She pro-
vided a proven curriculum
and will be working close-
ly with the Building
Blocks Director through-
out the summer. Besides a
few key needs we're target-
ing right now to. wrap
things up, the outstanding
program is set," Archam-
bault explained.
The standout among
these few current needs is
scholarship sponsors. "To
make Building Blocks tru-


ly serve the whole Lee
community, we want to in-
clude children who lack
the resources to attend.
So. although the weekly fee
is only $50, which for this
type of program is an ex-
ceptional value, especially
considering that it in-
cludes a hot lunch and two
healthy snacks daily, we
gratefully appeal to the
community for a comfort-


able donation. A contribu-
tion of between $50 and
$500 to match the weekly
and full summer rates
would be wonderful. It's
so important to the lives of
these children," Archam-
bault added.
Lee Councilwoman
Donna Muller made a gen-
erous donation during the
council meeting of May 5
when Archambault de-
tailed the official launch of
Building Blocks. Organiz-
ers emphasize that no do-
nation is too small and
may be delivered to Lee
City Hall or simply call
(850) 971-5867 for further
details.
Another priority need
is a large refrigera-
tor/freezer. And the last
among the big stuff need-
ed is a laptop computer
with projection display ac-
cessories like the equip-
ment used in the Exten-
sion Office meeting room.


For those unfamiliar with
those items, again just call
for details.
The initial class is be-
ing limited to 50 kids with
priority being given to
Lee, although anyone in-
terested should definitely
call. Before it's all over,
the kids are going to meet
entertainers, ranchers,
teachers, athletes, busi-
ness owners and officials
among the loads of arts,
crafts, sports, gardening
and reading fun. The list
literally encompasses
such a marvelous vari-
ety of activities that
many are already re-
questing it expand
throughout the county
and after school, which
is a goal among organiz-
ers.
This reporter is ex-
tremely proud to have had
the opportunity to work
closely with this project
and even having the honor
of suggesting the name
"Building Blocks," which
again was inspired from
the strategy of combining
themed weeks that repre-
sent essential building
blocks in the development
of the boys and girls being
served.
More than that plea-
sure, however, this re-
porter joins all those near
the project in offering
huge kudos to Lee Town
Manager Cheryl Archam-
bault, as well as Lee
Deputy Clerk Janice
Miller, for taking the coun-
cil goal from priority to re-
ality To make a reserva-
tion today, again simply

Have A 4-H Kind Of Day


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Summertime is coming up
fast and as every Madison
youth can tell that means no
class until school starts up
again in autumn. As any par-
ent of a Madison youth can
tell, that means broaching the
subject of what to do with
"Junior" during the long)
summer days while Mom and
Pop are at work. To stay panic
before it really sets in, 4-H has
come up with the perfect so-
lution, summer camp! Par-
ents can chose between day
camp or overnight, and rest
easy knowing that, either
way their precious little
sponges will soak up knowl-
edge as well as rays while en-
joying summertime fun.
The goalof the4-Hhas al-
ways been to develop life
skills; leadership, and citizen-
ship of youth through learn-
ing programs. With "hands-
on" learning in mostly exper-
imental fashion, the 4-H mot-
to is "To make the best bet-
ter," as the slogan entices chil-
dren to "learn by doing":.


"I pledge my head to
clearer thinking,
My heart to greater loyal-
ty,
My hands to larger ser-










vice
And my health to better
living,
For my club, my commu-
nity my country, and my
world."
This summer, the 4-Hem-
blem of the four-leaf clover
with the white H on each leaf,
signifying Head, Heart,
Hands and Health, will be
waving proudly over camps
that will educate youth under
18 during the off-school sum-
mer days. A variety of pro-
grams give youngsters and
their parents the choice of


photography nature and in-
sects, sewing and even an
overnight camp. Open on a
first-come, first serve basis,
parents will want to be sure to
make reservations early to
ensure their little clover a
spot in the learning fields.
Prices range from $150 for the
overnight camp to $10 plus
supplies for the sewing camp,
so every household budget
can find some room. There is
no need to be a 4-Her as the
camps and programs are
open to all youth ages 8 to 18.
For those parents out
there that would prefer to see
Junior outlearning and bask-
ing in the knowledge of sum-
mer instead of wearing a
dent into the sofa playing X-
, Box, check out the 4-H Camps
and see if there isn't a youth
leader inside every young
heart Call the County Exten-
sion Office at 973-4138 for
more information or to re-
serve a spot today

and crafts, and hiking.
Older campers can
participate in group and
self-discovery on the

Happenings



At Madison



First Faptist
By Kristin Finney

"Praise God, from whom all blessings flow." Sunday
morning was a joyous time at Madison First. We began
with the baptisms of Jacob Driggers, Ashlyn Rogers and
Gage Washington. We are thrilled to welcome them into
our church family, and the family of God. After that, we
honored our graduates from Madison County High
School, as well as those who have maintained higher ed-
ucation degrees. Later, Debbie Bass beautifully sang,
"I've Never Been Unloved." Deacon of the Week was Mr.
Lee Gordon, who said the offertory prayer. The Chancel
Choir then sang the upbeat "It's Alright." Pastor Fer-
rell's sermon was entitled Heaven on Earth. He
preached from Deuteronomy 6:4-12, Ephesians 6:4, He-
brews 12:7,11, and Colossians 3:21. He discussed the fam-
ily, "Family is designed to be a taste of heaven on
Earth," as well as the responsibilities of parents as well
as children.
Upcoming events at our church include; AWANA
Awards Presentation, which will be held Sunday May
25th at 6:00p.m. Vacation Bible School will begin on June
8th-12th. From 5:30-8:45 p.m. There will be a Luau/Pre-
registration on June 7th at 5:30p.m. Supplies are needed
to help make VBS a success this year, the theme is Out-
rigger Island, which you can guess is tropical. Items
such as lawn chairs, sand colored sheets, tikki torches,
and potted plants. Summer programs for the children
include; June 16t and 30h, Monday Movie Matinee from
2-4 p.m. and June 26V, Day at Cherry Lake.
As the summer draws nearer, our prayers remain
with students who are taking exams in the coming
weeks. Also, we would like to extend a special prayer to
everyone participating in the recital this Saturday at 1
p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday will also be the Spring Game
for the Madison County Cowboys at Boot Hill. May God
keep all of you safe, and bless you abundantly
The beauty of God can be seen all around us. The
births of so many new babies, the fields of flowers that
cover our county, the rain and warmth we have been
blessed with. If you ever begin to doubt that God is
there, remember he is all around us, everywhere we
turn. Every breath we take is a gift from Him. God
Bless!!!


NFCC Audit


ganization has enough resources to pay its debts over
the next 12 months. It compares an organization's cur-
rent assets to its current liabilities.
According to Investopedia, Current Ratio is a liquid-
ity ratio that measures a company's ability to pay short-
term obligations. It is calculated as current assets di-
vided by current liabilities.
The site further states that the ratio is mainly used
to give an idea of an organization's ability to pay back its
short-term liabilities (debt and payables) with its short-
term assets (cash and receivables). The higher the cur-
rent ratio, the more capable the organization is of pay-
ing its obligations.
A ratio under one suggests that the organization
would be unable to pay off its obligations if they came
due at that point. And while this could mean an organi-
zation is not in good financial health, it does not neces-
sarily mean that it will go bankrupt - as there are many
ways to access financing or to pull down reserves - but it
is definitely not a good sign.
The Current Ratio for NFCC for 2006 was well above
one, sitting at 2.7, which could generally be character-
ized as good. In other words, the current assets were 2.7
times greater than current liabilities during that fiscal
year.
The Current Ratio for 2007, however, was no longer
above one, having fallen to 0.84. So in a basic overview,
at the time if this audit, the college has 84 cents of cur-
rent assets for every dollar it currently owes, which
again, as noted above, refers to a 12-month period. There
is also no reason to believe the 2008 condition has im-

proved, creating more incentive on the faculty's asser-
tion that wagons are being circled and only the top few
insiders are allowed in to know the real picture.
The fact that assets of the college continue to grow is
no longer a point of celebration apparently The new Sci-
ence Center and furnishings alone represent a near six
million dollar increase and now all the expenses associ-
ated with that immense property must be carried.
The same is true for Public Safety and Nursing. Politics
aside, a case might be made for this simply being a peri-
od of building for the future while trying to manage the
economic challenges of today. At the end of the day
though, cash flow must be made sufficient to meet oblig-
ations, revenues must increase with enrollment and cash
management must be expertly handled and developed.
"Blaming it on the state and cutbacks is all good and
fine, but I want to know more about the financial exper-
tise of those top people over there. The board has cer-
tainly not shown any meaningful financial oversight
and I know Morris isn't a financial guy. I thought the
rest of them were mostly promoted educators," one con-
cerned alum noted.
Another asked, "If this new growth and financial
demands were too complex for the administration to
manage and wasn't handled right over the last few
years, then why would we have the same people manag-
ing it now, especially in light of recent comments by the
Board of Trustees? I just want to know who's checking
on the folks there now."

An EMTs Poem
Sorry if we woke you in the
middle of the night
But someone in your neighbor-
hood is fighting for his life
Sorry if we block the road and
make you turn around,
But there's been a bad wreck
with dying children on the
ground.
When you see us coming you'll'
understand
Let us have the right-of-way -.
someone needs a helping hand
Sometimes a child is choking,'
sometimes a broken leg.
Sometimes a heart stops beat-
ing, and when we get there it's
too late.
So if you see us crying when
we think we're alone
You'll know we had a "bad" one
and we're feeling mighty down.
We don't do it for the money -
you know we don't get paid&
We don't do it for the glory but
for a life that might be saved.
Somewhere deep within us our
souls are crying out
"We're here to help our neigh-
bors in their hour of pain and
doubt."
God gave us something special
to help us see you through
We do it 'cause we love you, and
we care about you too.


The Pifference Petween

Paramedics And EMTs
By Jacob Bembry
.Greeze Publishing, Inc.
' . The old joke goes that paramedics save lives, while
EMTs (emergency medical tecdifi'iEfs) save lives, but
that's not necessarily so.
Paramhedics have a year's more experience in the
classroom than EMTs (who are required to put in six
months) do.
Paramedics can do basic medical procedures,
which include giving shots for pain, reading electro-
cardiograms (EKGS), administering intravenous fluids
and performing cardiac draws. EMTs are not allowed
to do these things.
EMTs are allowed to do basic lifesaving and first
aid procedures.
All paramedics and EMTs should be saluted for
their commitment to go above and beyond the call of
duty
Madison County has a total of eight full-time para-
medics and three reserve paramedics. Rob Covell
serves as the paramedic supervisor.
The EMT supervisor is Lisa Jordan.
There are a total of six full-time EMTs and six re-
serve EMTs for Madison County's EMS crew.
Juan Botino serves as the EMS Director. Nathan
Williams is the assistant director. Michael Stick, M.D.,
is the medical director for EMS.
Lori Segrest handles billing for Madison County
EMS.

Three Florida Teachers


Win Excellence In Teaching


About Agriculture Awards
A North Central Florida elementary school teacher and two middle school agri-
science teachers have won Florida Agriculture in the Classroom, Inc.'s "Excellence in
Teaching about Agriculture Awards" for 2008 for their efforts to educate their stu-
dents about where food, fiber and landscape material come from.
Cherith Davenport of Archer Community School near Gainesville won for the el-
ementary and overall Florida level. Susan Carpenter of Mulrennan Middle School in
Tampa won for the middle school agri-science level. In addition, Brent Douglas of
High Springs Community School in North Central Florida, won for the middle school
agri-science level.
"These teachers exemplify what Florida Ag in the Classroom is looking for in
teachers who strive to teach students about the important role the Florida agriculture
industry plays in these students' daily lives," said Cara Martin, chairman of Florida
Ag in the Classroom and assistant director of government and community affairs for
Florida Farm Bureau.
As the overall Florida winner, Davenport, a teacher of gifted students in first
through fifth grade at Archer Community School, competes at the national level for
the National Excellence in Teaching about Agriculture Award. Davenport, Carpenter
and Douglas and administrators from their schools receive all expenses paid trips to
the National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference "The Most Bountiful Place on
Earth" June 25-28 in Costa Mesa, Calif., and will be honored at Florida Ag in the Class-
room's State Teacher and Volunteer Workshop "Oceans of Learning: Florida Agri-
culture" June 12-14 at the Hutchinson Island Marriott in Stuart.
Davenport, a 30-year teaching veteran, won for her efforts to educate student's
about turh-of-the-century agriculture versus present-day agriculture by conducting
scientific experiments, observing a real-life cattle drive and reading student novels.
"Children are naturally curious, and many of them find science exciting," Dav-
enport says, and she strives to tap that curiosity with projects using Florida Ag in the
Classroom teacher grant money to grow a schoolyard garden and lessons from "Pro-
ject Food, Land and People" and "Keeping Florida Green" to educate them about how
plants and animals prosper and where food, clothing and other items come from.
Carpenter, a teacher for 25 years and an agri-science teacher at Mulrennan Mid-
dle School in Tampa for two years, has used Florida Ag in the Classroom curricula,
materials grant money and other programs to educate her students about the com-
modities'produced in Florida and the issues faced by farmers who produce these com-
modities.
Brent Douglas, a teacher for 14 years and an agri-science teacher at High Springs
Community School in North Central Florida for three years, has attracted a growing
number of students to his program by growing and marketing commodities grown in
a schoolyard garden, conducting experiments by observing .these commodities, de-
veloping marketing programs to sell these commodities using PowerPoint presenta-
tions and practicing writing skills by writing essays about these commodities.
Florida Ag in the Classroom is a Gainesville-based, non-prbfit association
charged with educating Florida students and teachers in kindergarten through 12th
grade about the importance of the Florida agriculture industry It is funded by sales
of the agriculture specialty license plate also known as the "Ag Tag."

The Modern Life Jacket:

Style, Variety, And Comfort
Most boaters know they're required to have on board a
U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket for every passenger on
their vessel. Boating safety advocates recommend that all
boaters and passengers not only have a life jacket, but "Wear
Ift" at all times while boating.
Accidents on the water can happen much too fast to
reach and put on a stowed life jacket. Of those who died in
boating accidents in 2006, over two-thirds drowned - and 90
percent of those drowned were not wearing a life jacket.
The good news is that modern life jackets are much
more comfortable, lightweight, and stylish than the bulky
orange "horse collar" or "keyhole" style most boaters know.
Life jackets that use inflatable technologies are cool and com-
fortable. They may resemble a pair of suspenders or a belt
pack. Many inflate automatically when immersed in water.
Other life jacket styles are available for almost any boat-
ing activity:
* For fishing: Vest-style life jackets come with features
like pockets and clips to replace the fishing vest and keep the
angler safe.
* For personal watercraft and water sports: Lighter-
weight jackets are rugged, with multiple buckles and clasps
to keep them secure after impact with the water
* For hunting and cold weather. Full coats and suits are
available in camouflage colors for waterfowl hunting and for
those who boat when air and water temperatures are cool.
* For paddling: Special life jackets are designed with
large openings for arms to allow ease of movement.
* For children: Virtually all styles are available sized es-
pecially for children - some with cartoon characters, straps
for pulling children from the water, and high-visibility
schemes.
* For pets: Life jackets are even available for our four-
legged friends.
No matter what the activity or style chosen, the most im-
portant thing is this: remember to grab a life jacket and
"Wear It!"

How To Choose The

Ssht Life Ja~\et
I Looking for a life jacket? Today's jackets come in
a v tLriety of shapes, sizes, colors, and materials. No
mat ter which life jacket you choose, be sure it's right
for' YOU, your planned activities, and the water con-
ditii Dns you expect to encounter.,
Try It On
* Check the manufacturer's ratings for your size
and weight.
* � Make sure the jacket is properly zipped or buck-
led.
* Raise your arms straight up, over your head
whi le wearing your life jacket and ask a friend to
gra, 3p the tops of the arm openings, gently pulling up.
- * If there is excess room above the openings and
the. jacket rides up over your chin or face, it does NOT
fit I properly . A smig fit in these areas signals a prop-
erly fitting life jacket.
Fit Facts
* It is extremely important that you choose a prop-
erly fitting life jacket.
* Jackets that are too big will cause the flotation
dev: ice to push up around your face, which could be
dan gerous.,
* * Jackets that are too small will not be able to keep
you: r body afloat.
Important Reminders
* Make sure your life jacket is U.S. Coast Guard-
appi] oved.
* Double check that your jacket is appropriate for
you] r favorite boating activities.
* Take the time to ensure a proper fit.
* Life jackets meant for adults do not work for
chili dren. If you are boating withchildren, make sure
they ' are wearing properly fitted, child-sized life jack-
ets.

Full Moon


Fertilizer

By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Salutations all earthworms, moon beamers, and
sunshine streamers! Spring is upon Madison County
and the sun's rays are frolicking happily in the
flowerbeds. For all those out there that haven't found
the gumption to start planting yet, now's a good time to
jump in with both hands and get those elbows dirty
Mayflowers and summertime dreams are just around
the corner and there's no time to waste. As the saying
goes, it'll be the early bird that catches the worm.
Madison County can expect to see a few scattered
thunderstorms later this week and a little drizzle over
the weekend but, the in between planting days will hold
mostly sunny skies from there out. The weather couldn't
be nicer to get out in either, with highs in the upper 80's
and the lows not so low that they ever drop out of the.
60's.
The Full Flower Moon of May reached its peak on
the 19th of this month, so as the name says, flowers will
reign. For those out there that don't have their beds in
order yet, it's time to dig deep and see what will sprout
up. So, fertilize that ground and start sowing. Seed
sprouts can be nestled snug in the ground now that Jack
Frost has finally moved on. Don't forget those house-
plants either, since they could use some tender loving
care after the long, hard winter.
For anyone searching for ideas on what buds would
be best for the upcoming bloom fest, the Madison Gar-
den Club had their Flower Show on Thursday, May 1,
and the colors were spectacular. Hopefully Madison res-
idents got a chance to stop by and get some inspiration
for their own beds at home. The ladies proved that there
is no such thing as a color clash when it comes to.posies
and even Eliza Doolittle would be hard pressed to beat
the display that Madison's florally dedicated ladies,
along with the boys and girls of Greenville Elementary
presented.
Keep in mind what April showers brought and enjoy
the outdoors by adding a personal touch to the front
yard. Remember, there is a little gardener in everyone,
so don't let time waste. Hang tight and plant by the full
moon's light!

Designed with kids in mind, parents
nd their wee ones can enjoy endless
ours of outside fun by planting and tend-
g a backyard zoo. Blooming with color,
bouncing blossoms that blow in the breeze
can help create a pretty retreat for plant
and animal lovers alike. Common names
like Bee balm and Bear's Breeches help lit-
tle ones learn about their green leafed
l friends while parents will enjoy learning
e stories behind the name. With a little
bit of soil toiling, both children and adults
can spend summers in their own back
yard, with zoo buddies they watched grow.
"Rabbit's Foot fern are pretty hearty,"
as the plant that first came to mind at
Fraleigh Nursery "They are easy-to keep.

good to go."
. Saying money on the snack stand does-
't mean that Junior has to skip the mon-
ey cage. Instead, try moving the monkey
closer to home, like the backyard. Monkey
owers fit fabulously by the Kangaroo Paw
and Zebra grass. Just make sure to keep
the tender Lion's Ear, Tiger Lilies, and
Bears Breeches separated or, oh my, what a
mess there'll be.
A petite petting zoo calls for Lamb's
ars, Pig squeak, and Deer fern. Little
ones can sit and watch the Hens and

Time To Bag A Speci
If you're looking for a quality hunting experience,
look no further. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) offers hunters unique fall-
season hunts for deer, wild hogs and released quail on
the state's best public hunting lands.
These special-opportunity hunts present hunters
with vast areas, abundant game, low-hunting pressure
and excellent chances to bag quality game on select
wildlife management areas (WMAs) throughout Flori-
da.
Special-opportunity deer and wild hog hunts take place
on Fort Drum (Indian River County), Lake Panasoffkee
(Sumter County), Triple N Ranch (Osceola County) and
Green Swamp West Unit (Pasco County) WMAs. The re-
leased-quail hunts take place on Blackwater WMA -

Jacksonville Man Dies

In Boating Accident
A Jacksonville man was killed and his passenger
was injured in a boating accident Saturday when his
personal - watercraft collided with another vessel in
Durbin Creek.
George Rosborough, 19, was killed and Kimberly
Anaheim, 18, also of Jacksonville, was seriously in-
jured, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) investigators. Anaheim was
airlifted to Shands Hospital in Jacksonville.
Kyle J. Broberg, 18, of Jacksonville, operated the
other vessel, a 16-foot open jet boat. Rosborough and
Broberg had been traveling together up Durbin Creek in
separate vessels. While altering their courses in a nar-
row bend of the creek, the vessels ended up on a colli-
sion course. The jet boat veered to the right and the per-
sonal watercraft went to the left, resulting in the vesselss
colliding.
According to FWC investigator Jason Bsfeil,W-itaP-
pears that the personal watercraft went under th port
side of the boat, crushing the smaller craft. Rosborough
died at the scene, and Anaheim wqa listed # critical
condition. Broberg and his two passengers 'Wre.not in-
jured. " - ' ''t '
The FWC is still investigating the accident.

al-Opportunity Hunt
Carr Unit in Santa Rosa County.
All deer hunts allow you to take only mature buclks
with one antler having at least four points. Does also
may be taken if you apply for and draw an antlerless
deer permit. During hog hunts, .there are no size or bag
limits. For released-quail hunts, you must bring and re-
lease your own pen-raised quail.
If you find these special-opportunity hunts appeal?
ing, you ,may apply for one or more of these fall hunts
beginning May 6. The FWC will continue accepting ap-
plications for special-opportunity hunts through June
10.
Worksheets are available from any. FWC regional of-*
fice or online at MyFWC.com/hunting.
To apply for these hunt permits, take a worksheet to
any license agent or tax collector's office or submit, an
application at MyFWC.com.
Historically, demand for.these hunts is greater than
the number of available slots, so the FWC conducts a
random drawing to select hunters. Individuals can im-
prove their chances of being'selected by submitting as
many nonrefundable $5 applications as they would like.
The cost of the hunts for selected applicants ranges
from $50 to $175.
