Two men were arrested Thursday, March 12, af-

According to Capt. Mark Joost of the Madison
County Sheriff's Office, James D. Wimsatt, Jr., 38, of
Carrollton, Ky,, and John P. Gilbert, 25, of Middle-

toolbox from out of the garage.
A witness gave a description of the vehicle to
the authorities.
The information was relayed to the Madison Po-
lice Department. Patrolman Reggie Alexander spot-
ted people trying to sell items out of the car at the
carwash on Millinor Street in Madison a short time
later.
Alexander arrested Wimsatt and Gilbert, who
were interviewed at the jail by Joost.
One of the men confessed to the burglary, as well
as to other burglaries committed in Lake City. He
said that the burglaries were perpetrated to buy

Seactiiqg Tie JuKlyarfl

For .I rrand ew 1i1de
A couple of weeks ago in church, I heard James
Phillips say something that his father had told him that
makes a lot of sense about how we should approach life.
James'father, the late Cary phillips, had said, "You don't
look for a car in ajunkyard."
That statement is powerful not because it's funny
thinking about how someone, needing .a car, would go
looking. in a junkyard for a new ride. It's powerful when
you look at how people continually look for things in the
wrong places.
A person is lonely, so they go to a bar looking for
something to fix it. They think they've found their ideal
mate until the next morning when they are hit by the sun-
light and sobriety and remorse over what they have done.
Another person needs a high, so they go and buy ile-
gal drugs. Their high is only temporary and they come
crashing down again.
Perhaps another person overindulges in work, think-
ing that is the only way they can get away from life. Their
home life comes crashing down around them because
they have no time for their spouse or children.
J Another person becomes obsessed with pornogra-
physee gratmcationtheycannot find withtheir part-
Still another person seeks pleasure in sex with nu-
merous people, seeking the right person.
All these people are looking for cars injunkyards, not
realizing that the only thing they are finding are broken
i 4 down old clunkers and' garbage.
Where should we go to seek answers, if not in the
trash heap?
Why don't we look in the Bible. God has giventhe an-
swers to life's problems there.
Let's stop looking in the junkyard.

on the wall of the Madison Fire Station. "I support
their efforts 100 percent. This is history." said
Valentine. The city also agreed to furnish the paint,
while Janet Moses volunteered her time to create '
this piece of art. The City is accommodating the
Garden Club with their efforts to add some decor
by placing plants throughout the alley This began
the process of making history in Madison.
"The goal of this project is to make this a Madi-
son County historic pictorial walk through the al-
ley," stated volunteer Sandy Wilson.
The City gave permission to Janet Moses and
Company to use the alley one Friday night ,per
month to host an event titled, A Rally In The Alley,
which features livemusic, art and culture.
It doesn't stop there! Many other businesses in
Madison have made a request for a mural on their
building. Two of them are located by the alley

Handing Stanley the gavel, outgoing Mayor
Myra Valentine congratulated Stanley on being se-
elected by the board for the leadership position. "This
Sis one of the greatest cities in the world to be the
mayor of," she told hi.m.
Stanley presented Valentine with a plaque in ap-
preciation of her work as mayor. He said, "I also
want to thank the administration and the employees
for their hard work. Without them, we would not
have the city that we have."
S'In the first announcement of good news, Cham-
ber of Commerce Director Ted Ensminger told the
board that about 350 members of Bike Florida would
visit Madison March 29-31. "Sunday night, they will
see a play at North Florida Community College, and
Monday night we will host them for Jazz Under the
Stars downtown," he said. (That event is open to the
public.)
Ensminger asked for permission for attendees
to mingle outside the Treasures of Madison County
during a wine-and-cheese tasting slated during the
evening. Stanley said he will notify Ensminger after
consultation with Police Chief Rick Davis.
More good news came with the presentation of
. afpagreemeqtj.etveen the cities of Madison and Lee
for wastewater treatment. The agreement, begun
also almost two years ago, requires the City of Madi-
son to treat wastewater from the Town of Lee for
which Lee will pay $2.11 per one thousand gallons, to
be paid monthly. Lee will pay Madison a one-time
collection and impact fee of $50,000. Lee will trans-
port its wastewater to the collection, site at Inter-
state 10 and State Road 255, where it will be metered.
The board approved the agreement unanimously
In other business, City Manager Harold Emrich
recommended approval for partial use of the
$300,000 state grant for flood mitigation in the West
Farm low area. The longstanding legal battle has re-
sulted in two households accepting funds to move
and two others refusing the funds. Stanley com-
"mented. "If they get flooded again, they are on their
own." .. .
.The board approved the remittance of funds to
the two families, with recovery to come from grant,
money Commissioner Sumpier James voted against
the move.
In othbr business, Emrich reported that 'the
paving of a walk around Lake Francis has begun. He
also announced Visioning Day set for March 19,'with
visiting officials to tour the city ,
Stanley announced the completion of the. new
Emergency Operations Center. "It is the first one
completed in North Florida," he said. "The ribbon
cutting is set for March 18 at 2 p.m."

State of Florida's Fish and Wildlife Conserva-

coming to inspect in hopes of finding a solution.
The Commission 'stated that the fish kill could
be a result of lack of rain and a shortage of oxygen
in the water. It was also stated that this type of event
is happening all over the state of. Florida.

ordinator, Vicki Brown, without whom, he noted, the
growth and development of the department would not
have been possible. All agreed, showing it with both ap-
plause and continued words of encouragement
throughout the afternoon.
"I remember when we started. We had a very
small budget, but we kept at it,. and now we have this
great operations center to serve Madison County I don't
want to leave anybody out because so many people con-
tributed to this day, and I thank them all for what
they've done," Stanley noted.
Always a man willing and quick to give credit
where credit is due, Stanley closed with a short prayer,
reminding all that the protection of the county and the
bounty represented by the new EOC. was a spiritual gift
as well. Following the exchange, the crowd gathered at
the entrance of the EOC for the ribbon cutting, which
was followed by refreshments and a tour.

including classics like the bounce house and gi-
ant slide, .to cool new ones like the water slide
,(weather, permitting) and jousting pits, the in-
flatable carnival will truly be fun for all ages.
Operator Michael Cofield and his family have
built an excellent reputation in the region and
are pleased to be taking part in the Centennial
Celebration of the "Little but Proud" town. Par-
epts will 'be pleased as well, not' just with the
quality of the rides, but also with the company's
stellar safety history and safety certifications.
Tickets may be purchased for one ride, or an
economical day-bracelet may be purchased at a
discount for only $15, giving the kid including
those 50-year-old kids out there unlimited rid-
ing throughout the day. There is one ride for the
teens that includes a "snap-back" bungee harness
where the riders try to get to the other end of the
inflatable without being sprung back to the start,
and much, much more. Of course, there will be
plenty of fun for the tots too, as there are several
inflatable rides where parents may accompany
the child. Vouchers for the discounted bracelet
may be purchased at Lee City Hall, located on
County Road 255 just north of US 90 in Lee.
Centennial Lee Day is a historic occasion,
and a tribute to the entire Madison County com-
munity. An essay and art contest with $2,000
worth of prizes, children's games that give
chances to win Xbox 360 game systems, and food
good enough to make a memory, are just the start.
Organizers thank all, in advance and, again,
urge everyone to call (850) 971-5867 to reserve a
booth or to purchase the discounted wristband
for the inflatable carnival.

It's A Geat Timeouglas For




It's A Great Time For


Home Maintenance
Your home is the largest investment you will
ever make, so you need to take care of it. The key to
preserving your investment is to inspect it at regu-
lar intervals and make small repairs before they be-
come expensive problems. With the milder weather
we are experiencing, spring is a great time to con-
duct a home inspection to identify and repair any
problems.
Extension Housing Specialists suggest you start
- withan exterior 'check and then move to the inside
of your home. It helps to have a checklist so you will
not forget any area. It may take a weekend to com-
plete the inspections and then tie up your time for
several weekends doing repair projects, but it is well
worth the effort when it'means your home stays in
good condition. '
t The following are recommendations to keep
your house, in top repair:
Check all weather stripping and caulking around
; windowsand doors, especially if you have air con-
,: ditioning.
Check the house for cracked or peeled paint; caulk
and repaint as necessary.
: Check for cracks or surface deterioration if you
have a concrete or block foundation. Consult a pro-
fessional if you have any leaking or severe crack-
ing.
Inspect your roof for missing or deteriorated shin-
gles.
Clean exterior and garage doors; refinish when
necessary.
Check seals on refrigerator and freezers; clean re-
frigerator coils. -
Clean the fireplace; leave the damper open for im-
t proved ventilation if your home is not air condi-
*- tioned.
Inspect ceiling for cracks, holes or loose tiles.
Look at the condition of appliance cords, exten-
sion cords, plugs and exposed wiring and replace
.-::.. them if there is any sign of wear. '
Check toilets for leaks, constant running or inade-
-quate flushing.
Check ductwork forgapsdinisulation and joints.
. Seal with foil tape.. -, .. .
Make a list of all repairs you need to make and.
complete one job at a time. Taking care of small re-
pairs now can prevent an expensive repair down the
road. Madison County Extension office has inspec-
tion charts available to assist you with home inspec-
tions, call for your copy

Memories aren't
they precious? Today, I
subsist on them most of
the*time almost 90 years
of them from the time
they first left their im-
print on my brain. I was
about two and. since
Mother was traveling
with a rich lady as her -
nanny, I stayed with my
grandmother and my 14 year old
uncle. Of course, they spoiled me
and I was a brat that is, until
Mother came back and, with her
peach tree switch, showed me I
was not the queen bee that I
thought I was! But I'll always re-
member Uncle Jack playing ball
with me in the front clay yard of
the big .white house -in 'Georgia
and how I loved Mama Beck -1 al-
ways called her Mama.
Time then seems to skip to
South Florida. I was three when
Mother came back' to Georgia
from the nanny position and took
me to Florida where she met Bob
Bembry I have rather dim memo-
ries of walking down the side-
walk with them in one of the
smaller towns there I can't re-
member which one but it was
probably Winter Haven, for his'
sister Mary lived there and we
visited often. One thing I remem-
ber about Aunt Mary' was that
she always asked, "What does
Aunt'Mary's baby want?" and my
answer was always "Butter bread,
Aunt Mary" She was such a sweet
person. She was married to Bar-
ney Fox and they had three sons -
J.D., Robert and Hubert (later
memories of the latter two was
when I was 11 and they stayed
with us for a while in Lee). By
that time, we were living about
where the Cherry'home is now

ally partially sat in the
lake. The front porch was
in the .water with a dock
reaching out about ten
feet into the lake. Daddy
hired Jim Grice to help
him and Jim and his wife
moved in-with us and we
all lived the 'life of Riley'
Few expenses except gro-
ceries (and Mother kept


plenty of delicious food cooked), a
whole huge lake to play in com-
plete with alligators! When we
were swimming on the North side
we could hear them bellowing on
the east side! But they stayed in
their part and so did we.
And we had a Victrola the
one with the dog, with his ear
cocked to hear the music and the
two couples danced to it. They
also loved to play cards, but had to
do so sitting on the bed under
mosquito netting for the one
drawback to our idyllic life was
mosquitoes Before dusk they
would coverthe screen doors and,
of course, many got in as the
doors were opened and closed.
And there were silent movies
- I believe in hindsight they were
probably not as wonderful as my
memories of them were but on
Saturday we would'go into Apop-
ka and a highlight' of the week
would be watching the white-hat-
ted cowboys chase the black-hat-
ted bad guys.' They were also
sequels so you couldn't miss a Sat-
urday or you wouldn't know if
your hero won!
Well, I certainly can't cover
almost 90 years of Memories in
this one column but I can assure
you that, on the whole, my memo-
ries are mostly happy ones and I
enjoy them often. I hope you do
the same.

of china berry fights. China berry
trees were prevalent in this area.
J.D. was married then. I later
learned that Robert, the hand-

had Aunt Mary, but Hubert and I
were always close even though
the years following kept us sepa-
rated until he and his wife bought
a home in Jasper. I don't think
they were too happy there. Hubert
always thought of himself as
more Bernbry than Fox, but the
Bembrys of Hamilton, according
to him, didn't exactly take them
into the fold. Most of them had
doctors, lawyers, judges, sheriffs
and state patrol in their families
and, since Hubert had been very
well to do and a mayor in South
Florida, he didn't understand
why. Anyway, Hubert died last
year and I will miss him.
To go back in time to age
three, Mother married Bob Bem-
bry and I had a replacement for
the father I never knew, for my
parents split when I was only six
months old. Then Helen was born
when I was four. Of course, that
made a difference, for she was
Bob's first child. But he was a
good father, to me. From Eagle
Lake, we moved to Lake Ap6pka
where Daddy had the sole respon-
sibility of a whole orange grove

Rotary Introdued To Four Freedoms Trail


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
With special thanks to Lee FerDon "
Madison County has a new recreational trail that runs from the town of
Hanson to the Withlacoochee River at the Florida-Georgia border. The Four
Freedoms Trail was constructed as a joint effort between the County, Suwannee.
River Water Management District, the Office of Greenways and Trails and the
Florida Department of Transportation. As a result, the Trail was created with-
out using any of Madison County's ad valorem tax dollars. People can enjoy
walking, biking and horseback riding along the paved trail, which provides cov-
ered rest areas along the way.
During the regular monthly meeting of the Madison Rotary Club held on
Wednesday, Feb. 18, guest speakers: Allen Cherry, County Coordinator; Jeanne
Bass, County Planning & Zoning; and Sherilyn Pickles, County Office Adminis-
trator, shared the microphone, ,providing a variety of interesting updates, in-
cluding the "Rails to Trails" project that features the Four Freedoms Trail. It
was also pointed out that a map of the project could be found on the Internet at
www.madisoncountyfl.com in the Recreation Department section.

Happenings

At Madison First.
Baptist Churchi k -

By Kristin Finney
"He makes me lie down in green pastures, He
leads me beside quite waters, He restores my soul."
Sunday morning service began with Leanne
Wakefield singing, "In the Presence of the King."
Bill Brown then followed with the offertory prayer.
| Following the offering, the worship choir sang, "The
Cross Says Come."
Pastor Ferrell's message came from John 10. He
preached of how God is our shepherd. He leads us
where we need to go to survive. He cares for us as if
7 we .were His sheep. Jesus is the only door to Heaven;
He is the only one who can lead us in the correct
path. The Devil is also in our lives, 'but all he will
ever do is kill, steal or destroy the life we lead. Our
only hope to reaching the ultimate joy is to believe
and follow Christ, our shepherd.
Upcoming events at our church are as follows:
The Youth group is planning another trip to Mission
Lab New' Orleans over Spring Break. If you are in-
terested,-please contact Elias Paulk. Madison First:.,,
Baptist's Homecoming Celebration has been sched-,
uled for April 19, at 11 a.m.-3 p.m. It will be held in
the 1898 sanctuary.,
We wouldlike toinvite you tojoin us for our ser-
vices! Our worship schedule is as follows: Sunday .A
-school, 10-11 a.m. Sunday morning worship, 11;
a.m.-noon. Sunday evening worship, 6-7 p.m., fol-
lowed by youth dinner and fellowship until 8 p.m.
Wednesday evening
S Our prayers this week are given to all of Madi-:
son. We all have special needs in our lives. Some of
us may be feeling down or hopeless; others may be:'
confused or lost. Whatever our situations are, God is:
beside us. He is an eternal friend who never turns '
His back on you. His love for us is the strongest love
of all! The joy of knowing Him as our personal Lord-
and Savior is the greatest joy we will ever experi-
ence.
We would also like to pray for all of Madison
County High School seniors. College is anew expe- -
rience and is coming very quickly. Eighty-85 percent
of college students lose their faithfulness toward the
church during their college careers. America has
become the fifth leading "lost" country in the world!
Our prayers are extended to you in hopes that
you will continue to believe in the love of Christ!
'.God'bless!

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Tobacco Free Flori-
da Week, which ran this
year from Feb. 27 to
March 7, is dedicated to
raising awareness about
the dire consequences of
tobacco use, and to pro-
mote a tobacco free
lifestyle through person-
al pledges to be tobacco
free. The Madison Coun-
ty Health Department
Tobacco Prevention 'pro-
gram, headed up by
Doug Freer and Tyuan-
na McCall, facilitated
and praised those who
signed pledges, as well
as thanking school staff
that participated in the.
event.
Pinetta, Greenville
and Lee Elementary
Schools, in addition to
the Excel School and the
Central School, hosted
the prevention special-
ists who set up informa-
tion tables in' the
cafeteria that informed
students about the ad-
verse health impact of
tobacco, offering strong
Support to remain tobac-
co free. Many students
then decided to take per-
sonal pledge to remain
- tobacco free for life. Lat-
er, names were drawn-
from. among the pledges
and those students were
awarded a tobacco
themed storybook with a
matching T-shirt.,
Curriculum Coordi-


nator Lynne Sapp was
particularly instrumen-
tal in coordinating these
important activities at
the Central School,
where two FSU nursing
students also participat-
ed, conducting four to-
bacco awareness

bacco free and
encouraging the all stu-
dents to do the
same., The Central

John C. McGehee:




Politician And Wealthy Man


By Alfa Hunt
Greene Publishing,. Inc.
The first. sale' of land in what
would become known as Madison
County took' place July 22,: 1825, to
John Taylor. Although Taylor was the
first man to purchase land in the area,
he was not the first settler. .
Land sales began to pick up as the
years passed, but 1830 was the banner,
year for land sales. In that year alone,
there were 7,580 acres sold to more
than 20 individuals. Among these mpn
was'John C. McGehee, a man who had
formerly lived in South Carolina and
had migrated to the area shortly be-
fore his first land purchase along Belt
lamy Rd."
Over the years, McGehee would
continue to buy small pieces of land
.within Madison County and establish
his plantations. Eventually, by the out-.
break of the War Between the States,'
McGehee's total acreage within coun-
ty lines was 3,000.
Apart from his agricultural inter-
est, McGehee was also a shareholder
with the Union Bank of Tallahassee.
Unfortunately, the bank collapsed not
long afterward. ,
As M' Gehee's wealth increased,
he and his wife decided to build a
home that better suited their "station
,in life.". McGehee wrote to Baltimore
Technical College and asked them to
recommend an architect who ,would
carry out his ideas for building a new
home..
: ,.The college recommend William
Archer Hammerly, who was a gradu-
ate of -the institution. Hammerly had
previously built a mansion in Savan-
nah, Ga., for John Brown Gordon, fa-
ther of Juliette Gordon Lowe, the
founder of the.Girl Scouts of America.
Hammerly accepted Ithe commis-
sion to build McGehee's home and
'came to Madison County.. McGehee
'and Hammerly planned and built a
large mansion in the Moseley Hall
area, near where the old Federal Rd.
leaves CR 360.
There is no reliable description of
the mansion to be found today, but it is
known that the mantels, as well as the
steps in the home, were made of mar-
ble. The home only housed the finest
furniture, china and silverware. A
two-acre garden was planted alongside
the home.
It took more than a year to build
and furnish the home, but when it was
completed. McGehee named it
"'Chuleota," which is an Indian word-
Smeaning "Pine Hill." '
The. shocking story ,regarding
move-in day is as follows: It is said that


Aug. 2, 1858, the day for the McGehee
family to move in, Mrs. McGehee en-
tered the front door, looked around the
home, and said, "I'm as near Heaven
as I'llever be!" Right after she had spo-
ken these words, Mrs. McGehee, sud-
denly collapsed and died of unknown
causes.
McGehee had no children of his
own to share the home, but he did take
in .the children of his brother, Wiley
Scott McGehee. He also shared the
home with his brother-in-law, Albert.
Dozier. Nothing is left of the home to-
day, but a grouping of trees marks its
former loca-
tion. I .
McGehee
became the
wealth iest t
man' in Madi-
son :, County,
and because of
)it,' he became .
involved in the
well-being and, "
development
of the area. .
In 1839,
shortly after
the eruption of
the Second
Seminole War,
McGehee and
several other
leading figures
in the county, 4
decided to
take action
against the In-
dian raids on ) "
their homes. o JO C.
Florida President of
Gov. Richard ecesion
Keith \ Call Secession
wrote to Col, William' Davenport, who
was stationed in St. Marks. His letter
entailed a detailed report of a recent.
murder of an entire family on the east
side of the Aucilla River, though the
family was unnamed. The governor
suggested to ,Col. Davenport that he
station a company of men midway be-
tween San Pedro and the Aucilla River.,
It wasn't long after the arrival of
Gov.' Call's letter that Col. Davenport
received another letter. Thi's time, it
was from Capt. William Hoffman, who
reported one man near Sandy. Ford
had been murdered arid, several others
had been severely injured.
Davenport immediately assigned
'A" Company to the area between San
Pedro. and the Aucilla River. He also
repositioned "F", Company 'midway
between Charles Ferry and San Pedro.
However, over the next few


months, settlers' lifted spirits fell be-
cause military support died away. In-
dian raids continued and led to the
murder of several other individuals.
July 1839; Col. Green forwarded a
petition from 33 of the leading settlers
in Madison County to Col. Davenport.
The petition stated the settlers were
tired of the "hostile attacks of, the In-
dians," and, because of the recent'
murder of William Chaires, they no
longer held the hope of peace and se-
curity in the area.
William Chaires and his entire
family had been killed in Jefferson
? County, July'
13, 1839. The
petition went
on to say that
Col. Green
would relocate
Capt. Bradley
to another lo-
cation, where
they would
better protect',
the settle-
Smerits. The pe-
tition was*
-signed by all
33. men, in-
cluding. John'
McGehee.
It wasn't
until -April
1840 that the,
natives re-
treated to the
Everglades.
McGehee
was hiot only
MCG1HF, an 'avid politi-
the Florida cal man in
Convent.ipn M a d i s o. n,
County, but
for the state, as well. In May 1837, an
election was held in order to decide
whether Florida would :become the
next state. The majority of the vote
taken that day was in favor of' 'state-
hood at 1,005 votes. Both East.and West'
Florida were against the idea of be-
coming a state, but it was Middle
Florida that was able to provide the
necessary votes Which' led to Florida
joining the United States.
'Counties in Middle Florida con-.
trolled the politics of the territory In
-late 1838, a convention was held to
write out the first state constitution at
the. boom- town of St. Joseph. (St.
Joseph was later destroyed by a com-
bination of yellow fever and a tidal
wave caused by hurricane winds.)
The Madison County official represen-
tative at this convention was McGe-
hee.


All copies of this first state con-
stitution were lost until the early
1980s. William Galpin of Fernandina
Beach happened to be going through
some old papers that had been passed
down through his family and found
what historians call a clerk's copy of
the first state constitution.
Galpin's grandfather was the hus-
band of McGehee's adopted daughter.
It would seem that Galpin's grandpar-
ents had come into possession of this
copy shortly before they had moved
from Madison in the 1870s. It is be-
lieved that McGehee came into posses-
sion of this copy in 1861 when he was
president of the Secession Convention
of Florida.
'As the years passed, McGehee's
influence and fortune continued "to
grow. By 1860, he was both the most
well-known politician and the wealthi-
est man in Madison County. He served
as the county judge at one point arid
represented the county during the
first Constitutional Convention,
It was well known that McGehe,e
was a strong advocate for state's
.rights. He served an apprenticeship in
the law office of John C. Calhoun, who
made the phrase, "Equality in the
Union or Independence Out of It," 'so
popular.
'Because of his acquaintance with
Calhoun, McGehee favored the idea of
secession, from the Union. As: a
wealthy slave owner, McGehee also be-
come involved with the Southern
Rights Association, which was an or-
ganization that. opposed any federal
interference with the rights of the
States.' ,
After the election of Lincoln 'iM
1860, Gov. Perry of Florida held a con-
vention to consider secession for the
state. Madison County. representatives
at this meeting were McGehee aid
A.J. Lee. When the vote was cast for se-
cession during the convention, McGe-
hee was elected to be the permanent
,chairman of the Secession Conven-
tion, which ended up voting 62 to 7 to
take Florida out of the Union. McGe-
hee telegraphed his home county,
where the news of the decision was re-
ceived with great enthusiasm.
Not much is known about McGe-
hee's part in the Civil :War, but after
1865, McGehee became involved in
railroad construction until his death
in 1881.
McGehee was buried in Oakland
Cemetery, with only a few lines on his
gravestone. A Florida historic mark-
er, which states a few facts about his
life, has been erected close to his
gravesite.

Florida Wildfire Danger Alert


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Florida is experiencing twice the
wildfire activity of a year ago and the
danger is increasing every day, accord-
ing to Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services. Residents are urged
to do their part to prevent wildfires by
avoiding any unnecessary outdoor
burning. They should also check with
their local Division of Forestry office
or county government to determine if
there is a local burn ban in effect.
A lack of substantial rainfall, es-
pecially in Central and South Florida,
coupled with recent freezes through-
out the state, has left Florida's vegeta-
tion ripe for wildfires.. Wildfires can
start easily, intensify quickly and
-move rapidly because of the current
conditions.
Statewide, the Keetch-Byram
Drought Index currently stands at 520,
well above normal for this time of the
year. Moreover, the index shows that
nearly half of Florida is well above
tthe statewide average and is experi-
ecing "severe" dry conditions. The
Drought Index measures available soil
irioisture and runs' from 0 (saturated)
'to 800 (desert-like).
Since Jan. 1, Florida has had 1,024

Sturgeon Returning
The Gulf sturgeon *are beginning
their annual migration back into the
'Suwannee River'. during March and
April.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
,servation Commission reminds
boaterss to' slow down and be
.aware these fish are jumping.
Three people were injured
,in accidental collisions with
jumping sturgeon during
;2008. ..
"Just one .person getting
hurt is too many," said Maj. Lee
eachc, regional law enforce-
.ment commander for the
:FWC's North Central Re- .
&gion, based in Lake City.
"',.We want people to be aware
the sturgeon are returning, and '
the.,risk. of injury to boaters
.daessex'ist a",:- ':: -,< "
In 2006, FWC officials began
working on a public awareness
campaign to alert boaters to the
risks .of jumping sturgeon.
"We -have posted signs at
each boat ramp along the Suwan- .
.ee, explaining the risk of im-
:pacts with these fish," Beach
said. "We will be checkingdthose
boat, ramps this month to ensure all
* the signs are still in place and
our officers will be on water pa-
trol during this period and into
:the summer months in a continued ef-
fort to educate boaters on this issue."
What's the best course of action
for avoiding a collision?
"We recommend boaters reduce
their speed to reduce the risk of im-
pact and. to give people more time to
react if they do encounter a jumping
sturgeon," Beach said. "The FWC also
recommends- that all boaters wear
their life jackets."


wildfires that have burned 24,730
acres,. compared with 508 fires impact-
ing 11,292 acres at the same time last
year. Because the lightening season
has yet to begin, virtually all of the
fires that have occurred to date were
caused by humans and were therefore
avoidable.
Additional tips for residents to
help prevent wildfires include:
* Never leave a campfire unattended.
* Don't throw cigarettes or other
lighted material out of car windows.
* Clear gutters of leaves and other de-
bris, and remove vegetation from
around homes, creating a 30-foot de-
fensible space.
* Do not park motor vehicles or equip-
ment in areas where the hot catalyt-
ic converter could ignite grass,
leaves or debris.
For other wildfire prevention ac-
tions you can take, and recommenda-
tions to help increase the probability
that your home and community can
survive a wildfire disaster, visit the
Florida DiVision of Forestry Web site
at www.fl-dof.com or contact your local
Florida Division of Forestry field of-
fice at (850) 973-5100.

To Suwannee River
The Suwannee Rivet appears to
support the largest viable population
of Gulf sturgeon. Biologists estimate
the annual population at 6,500 to 7,500
fish, each averaging approximately 40
pounds. Adult fish spend eight to nine
months each year ,in he river spawn-
ing and three to four of the coolest
months in Gulf waters. Sturgeon tend.
to congregate in deeper and cooler wa-
ters with moderate currents and sand
and rocky bottoms.
Biologists are unsure why stur-
geon jump.
"Scientists are still attempting
to figure that out," said Dr. Jeffrey
Wilcox, Wildlife Commission bi-
ologist. "The latest theories in-
clude that the fish; jump to
communicate, or it may be a dom-
inance display No rules require
all jumps ;to mean :the -same
thi g."
"'I have seen these collisions
referred to as 'attacks.' However,
these fish are in no way attacking
when they jump. They are simply
doing what they have been doing
for millions of years ... jump-
ing. They aren't.targeting the
boaters," Wilcox said.
However, Gulf sturgeon can get
quite big, exceeding 8 feet and 200
,-i pounds.
"They have five rows of
rock-hard 'scutes' along their
sides, back and belly. When
sturgeon and boaters col-
lide, the results can be dev-
astating," Wilcox said.
"Sturgeon are protected by state
and federal law, just like bald eagles',
panthers and sea turtles," Beach said.
"These fish can't be harvested."

888-404-FWCC (3922).

NRCS Extends Application

Period For Conservation

Innovation Grants To March 20


The U.S. Department of Agri-
culture's Natural Resources Conser-
vation Service announced this
month the application period for
2009 Conservation Innovation
Grants funding has been extended
to March 20, 2009. The previous
deadline to submit applications was
March 2.
"Innovation always has been a
hallmark of American agriculture,
and in keeping with President Oba-
ma's focus, on science, technology
and innovation, these grants will
provide an opportunity for citizens
to directly engage with promoting a
healthy environment and a healthy
economy," said Acting Conservation
Service Chief Dave White. "We're
extending the application period to
make certain those interested have
adequate time to submit applica-
tions."
The Conservation Innovation
Grants are aimed at helping achieve
and promote innovation in critical
areas, such as water quality, energy,
climate change and pollinator habi-
tat. The Conservation Service ad-
ministers the grant program.
Grants will be awarded through a
nationwide competitive process and
can range up to three years in
length. Up to $20 million is available
for this national competition. Appli-
cations will be accepted from all 50
states, the Caribbean (Puerto Rico
and the Virgin Islands).and the Pa-
cific Islands (Guam, American
Samoa and the Commonwealth of
the Northern Mariana Islands).-
The fiscal year 2009 Conserva-
tion Service Coliservation Innova-
tion Grants categories are:
*. Natural Resource Concerns,
Category-Up to $5 million is avail-
able for proposals addressing natur-
al resource issues such as air
quality, water quality, wildlife habi-
tat, forest management, nutrient
management and other ways to ad-
dress and meet federal, state 'and lo-
cal environmental requirements.
Technology Category-Up to
$6 million is available for proposals
in new technologies that promote
such areas as animal waste manage-
ment, erosion control, grazing land,
productivity, irrigation water use,
fertilizer use, energy use and car-
bon sequestration.
Grant Leveraging Category-,
Up to $4 million is available to help
leverage grant projects that. en-
hance and protect the environment'
more by ,doing so ;in conjunction
with other agricultural production
and forest management projects.

such as erosion and sediment con-,
trol, carbon sequestration and wa-
ter quality.
Project proposals must de-
scribe the geographic area and the
natural resource concern or con-
cerns being addressed. Applicants
also must describe the innovative
technologies or approaches which
will be used. Other requirements
are identified in the announcement
of program funding: The Conser-
vation Service will provide techni-
cal oversight for each project
receiving an award, however, each
grantee is responsible for provid-
ing the technical assistance re-
quired to successfully complete the
project.
The Conservation Service plans
to fund projects targeting innova-
tive, on-the-ground conservation, in-
cluding pilot projects and field
demonstrations. The grant is not a
research program, but, rather, a tool
to stimulate the adoption of conser-
vation approaches or technologies
that have been studied sufficiently
to indicate a high likelihood of suc-
cess, and are likely candidates for
eventual transfer of the technology
to the public.
The Conservation Service can
match up to 50 percent of the project.
when at least 50 percent of the pro-
ject's total cost (cash and in-kind
contributions) comes from non-fed-
eral sources. The federal contribu-
tion for a single project cannot
exceed,$2 million.
Applications must be .received
in the Conservation Service Nation-
al Headquarters by close of busi-
ness March 20, 2009. Applications
should be sent to: USDA Natural Re-
sources Conservation Service; Con-
servation Innovation Grants
Program; Financial Assistance, Pro-
grams Division, Room 5239-S; 1400
