Hospital Completes $22 Million USDA Application
Residents look at receiving big dividend on investment.


By Michael Curtis *
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The residents of
Madison County should
be looking at a big divi-
dend on their invest-
ment soon, as Madison
County Memorial Hospi-
tal moves into the final
phase of building a new
hospital. The road to
groundbreaking has
been littered with
bumps and dips, and al-
though these challenges
were anticipated and
have been met head-on,
it has been hard for
some to see the light at
the end of the tunnel.


Since the. half-cent
sales tax was approved
by voters on November
7, 2006, the support has
waxed and waned a bit
simply because it has
been several years in the
making, which always
gives rise to gossip and
for the naysayers. This
delay was expected, how-
ever, as one of the re-
quirements for the
project was that the tax
assessment accumulate
at least one million dol-
lars, which, just hap-
pened.
The hospital board
and administrator were


very proud to announce
that this financial
threshold had been met,
so with the documenta-
tion being signed, it ,is
now in the hands of Jim
Parrish, an exceptional
consultant'often used by
the county with a proven
track history for getting
the job done. In fact, dur-
ing a special board meet-

Lad er, Letters to the Editor are typed word for word, comma for comma, as sent to this newspaper
Jacob Bembry We Are Now Terrorists
"We, Are NowT,.or-'l.


The Rain
Last Friday, I sat in a room at the Wound
Treatment Center in Tallahassee with my
brother, Danny, and Dr. Paul Reynolds. This
Friday, I will sit at Capital Regional Medical
Center in Tallahassee as Danny has his toe am-
putated.
The past couple of years have,been filled
with one crisis after another for my family and
myself. Daddy has broken both hips, Danny
has been in the hospital three times in the last
two years and I Was in'the hospital twice last
year. There have been many days, driving to
doctors' appointments, visiting hospitals and
trying to hold my family and myself together.
There have been days of missed work,
causing my salary to suffer immensely and
work falling behind. Danny will also have to
miss work for about a month and he has no
more sick leave built up. Through it all,
though, we keep on doing it because we're a
family.
I constantly have to tell myself that the
Bible says that it rains on the just and, on the,
unjust, so things happen to everyone. It's like
former comedian, now motivational speaker,
Andy Andrews shys, "Everyone is either in a
crisis, coming out of a crisis, or headed for a
crisis."
There's a big part of me that cries, "Lord,
let the rain stop."
The other night, I was at Wendy's, about to
head to the hospital again, and I was having a
pity party. While I was there, an Oriental fami-
ly entered and crashed the party. They had a
child that was paralyzed and looked out-of-it.
The mother lovingly took time to feed baby
food to the child, who was probably'a teenager.
As I watched the mother and father and their
two other children smiling, I quietly repented
for feeling sorry for myself.
This week has once again been filled with
doctor's visits, as well as trips to.the hospital.
to see Danny. I know it's not easy on him, being
stuck in a hospital and being bored. With God's
help, and His strength, which is made perfect
in my weakness, I know that i will make if.
Continue to pray for me and my family.


I, as well as many others in Madison Coun-
ty Florida, are, "Rightwing Extremists" that is
according to the Obama Administration. The
Department of the Homeland Security (DHS)
has included anyone that is conservative, be-
lieves in Christianity, has a bumper sticker
that is pro life, believes in smaller govern-
ment, owns a firearm, is a returning veteran,
against higher taxes etc. etc. etc. is a right
wing extremist. And, must be watched. This to
me is an insult to my conservative ideology. I
firmly believe our military veterans and other
Americans should receive an immediate apolo-
gy from this administration.
It appears that the Department of Home-
land Security under Janet Napolitano is trying
to demonize political dissent. The nine-page
document "of which I have a copy and has
been,sent to this Newspaper" sent to Police all
over the United States, likens citizens opposed
to new firearms restrictions, returning veter-
ans and conservatives to "rightwing extrem-
ists" and associates all- of us, with white
supremacists, and violent anti-government
groups.
This administration needs to be reminded
that its words and actions have consequences,
and irresponsible statements, reports, and ac-
tions, fuel. fires that are counterproductive to
our republic in America.
"The authors of this. assessment at the
Homeland Security are pushing a we, against
them, philosophy. They, along with Secretary
Napolitano, owe every conservative American,
every veteran, and everyone who supports a
limited government, an apology.
It's ironic; that President Obama's friend,
William Ayers, a known 'leftwing terrorist
bomber, but nothing in this report suggests
monitoring leftwing activities. It's amazing, to
me, that PETA an organization that has de-
stroyed, killed, and maimed more people than
Janet Reno, yet isn't mentioned anywhere in
the nine pages of this Homeland Security re-
port.
What really galls me personally is the re-
port on having to watch veterans. I have two
sons in the Iraq theater, both of my sons are on
their second tour, neither have complained of
having to do their job, both have signed blank
checks to, and including their lives, and now,
are considered terrorists when coming home. I
spoke, to my youngest son this past Sunday and
asked him when he would be coming home,


"He was due home in January" His answer
was, "I don't know". Obama has cut our mili-
tary budget so much, we don't have the money
to send me back to the US, and I may be here
another six months. This will mean that my
son will be "In Country" nearly thirty months,
as a landlocked Sailor, and now? Must be
watched when he comes home as a terrorist.
I want to personally thank those wonderful
people that demonstrated against higher taxes
at the Madison County Court House last week;
I wish I could have been there with you. One
thing you may not know, is that Tax Day TEA
Party participants were being closely watched
during the demonstration planning stages in a
overt operation that began on or about
March 23, 2009.
If you're one of the estimated 750,000
Americans who attended one of about 600
TEA parties last week, you might have seen
media cameras covering, the event. Media
cameras, however, were not the only cameras
taking video at these events, surveillance was
"planned and performed" at each of the TEA
parties that took place last Tuesday.
Those fine people are now. considered as
"must watch" by our government, yet Abdul
Qureshi is not. Qureshi is considered mis-
guided, as his Daddy may have been mean to
him. Qureshi was released from Gitmo less
than a year ago. Abdul Qureshi received his 98
virgins to be shared with Allah because of a
well-placed .308 bullet from a certain Marine
in Afghanistan. Oooorah Marine.
Food for thought: I watched Senator Reed
of Nevada on TV last evening. The Senate
boss said, "The only people that had enough
money to get this country back on stable foot-
ing was the Government". Hunh? This is the
guy that runs the United States Senate? Does
he not know that this Government has ab-
solutely nothing unless it takes it away from
the people first? In the form of a TAX? Thenr
old Barney Frank thinks no one should make
more than the President? Is this not the" same
Barney .that was running a MALE Prostitute
ring in the cellar of. his house in order to
'make ends meet? Or was it just to fill his cof-
fers? .
I went to bed one night ,as a good Ameri-
can, when I awoke the next day, I was a terror-
ist. Welcome to the Obama administration.

the whole nation itself assembJed, could
validly engage debts beyond what they
may pay in their own time, that is to say,

As time went on, Thomas Jefferson,.
on Nov. 26, 1798, wrote: "I wish it were
possible to obtain a single amendment to
our Constitution...I mean an additional
article, taking from the federal govern-
ment the power of borrowing." See: Lip-
scomb above, Vo. 10, p. 64.
He claimed that "he would be will-
ing to depend on that alone for the re-
duction of the administration of our
government to the genuine principles of
its Constitution."
John C. Calhoun said: "I am dis-
posed to regard it as a political maxim in
free States, that an imp verished Trea-
sury, once in a generation at least, is al-
most indispensable to the preservation
of their institutions and liberty" See:

all necessary documentation and actions in a time-
ly manner. Still, tensions have been high, as fami-

cont from Page 1A

The Cowboys, led by head coach Terry Barrs
and assistant coaches Jamie Carroll and John Sir-
mon, Jr., fielded a team that included seven seniors.
Most of the seniors have been part of the varsity
team 'since their freshman year at MCHS. The se-
niors were honored at a "Senior Night" ceremony at
the last home game at Boot Hill, where each senior
presented his parents with gifts to remind them of
their son's final baseball season. Graduating base-
ball players include Jacob Bailey, Drew Brown, Jor-
dan Carroll, Jacobbi McDaniel, Scott Pleasant, Evan
Schnitker, and Brynne Wetherington. These seniors
led the Cowboy team in batting averages, home
.runs, tuns batted in, pitching, steals, and many oth-
er statistics. In addition, these seniors were also
recognized as leaders in the Big Bend region in sev-
eral statistical categories: batting average (Carroll,
McDaniel, Schnitker, Wetherington); home runs
(McDaniel, Carroll, Wetherington, Schnitker); runs
scored (Schnitker, Wetherington, Carroll, McDaniel,
Pleasant); RBIs (McDaniel, Carroll, Wetherington,
Schnitker); stolen bases (Schnitker, Pleasant,
Wetherington); and pitching (Carroll, Brown).
The entire Cowboy baseball team wishes to
thank their fans and sponsors who have supported
the team throughout the year, with special thanks to
Fellowship Church for use of the van, the recogni-
Stion service, and the commemorative senior DVD.

for such an undertaking, proudly placing signa-
tures as they went along.
So, what's the bottom line? Over the next six,
months or so, the exchange with the USDA De-
partment of Rural Development, as well as local,
architects and builders will kick into high gear,.-
which will conclude in the much-anticipated,
groundbreaking. From that point, the completed;
facility will take approximately one year to one-
year-and-one-half.
There are several projections and formulas
that go into various calculations. Remember, this
is an immense medical industry undertaking.
There will be a myriad of T's to cross and I's to.
dot, but when its over, a new state-of-the-art facil-
ity will be introduced to the county to go along
with the new doctors, diagnostics and conve-
nience it has been rebuilding over the last year,
not to mention the additional services associated.
with the new hospital..
As the progress unfolds, residents are urged,
to acquaint themselves with the expansion and
quality, whatever it takes to justify utilization of
the new resource. In other words, the hospital is,
being built to meet the needs of the county New.
doctors all of which are quickly building an ex-
ceptional reputation were hired to work with it.
So, in the end, millions of dollars worth of diag-
nostics can no longer be driven to Tallahassee or
Gainesville or Valdosta.
Whatever it takes to gain and regain the trust
of all Madison residents is a community priority
Think about it. In order to qualify for the 4.75
percent, 40-year loan which all would agree are-
exceptional terms and they may even get better -
the hospital had to submit a financial feasibility
report. Despite opinions to the contrary, the gov-
ernment, doesn't just print money and give it
away So, in every sense of the word, the hospital
had to qualify Furthermore, history has shown
that Parrish wouldn't associate his name to any-
thing less than quality
Senator Bill Nelson came to town to support
it.
So, here's the rub. What if everybody that
takes a look at the hospital and the new doctors,
etc., found confidence quickly, but others simply
overlook the new resource out of habit or prior
experience? The effect could be devastating, be-
cause without full community buy-in it will have

Kicked In The Butt With A



Golden Horseshoe


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
There's an urban legend that circulated a while
back speaking of two 50-something executives who
had recently been fired from a building materials comn-
pany Both were depressed, thinking they couldn't get
back in the game at their age, and certainly not for the
same money. As the story goes, the two traveled a very
different path to a very positive fate, becoming the
founders of Home Depot. The situation was later char- "
acterized as being "kicked in the butt with a golden
horseshoe," meaning that very good things can result
from what appears to be a dismal situation.
Unique Gnann was a student at Madison County
High School last year until an altercation sent her to
the Excel School to finish her education. Unlike some
who treat such a situation as the end of the line,
Gnann recognized the opportunity at Excel and hoped
to push through her challenges. Her life would soon
take a very "unique" turn no pun intended as the
golden horseshoe hit her.
As a result of follow-up that was part of her ongo-
ing responsibilities with the Department of Juvenile
Justice, Gnann was given an opportunity to join a pro-
gram that has changed her life, and the lives of count-
less other at-risk teens, providing her direction that V
she and her family never thought possible. In Janualry,
she was referred to the Florida Youth ChalleNGe
Academy (FLYCA) and her life hasn't been the same
since.
FLYCA is a 17 % month voluntary program geared toward
Florida's 16 to 19 year.old at-risk youth. The program consists of
a 5 % month residential phase and a 12 month post-residential phase. The
Academy follows a rigid training schedule throughout the residential phase

What is Florida doing to protect me from
swine flu?
We have epidemiologist or "disease detec-
tives" at the County Health Departments and in
Tallahassee. There is a detailed plan in place to
respond to influenza outbreaks. Florida has a
strong system to identify potential influenza cas-
es.
Our state laboratories have the equipment
and trained staff to identify influenza samples.
We have 100 physicians who report flu activity
to us on a weekly basis.
We have access to:a database that tracks over
the counter drugs to provide us with early warn-
ing of potential flu activity.
We also track, 106 emergency departments
throughout the state to analyze trends in types of
illnesses.
Is this swine flu virus contagious?
Swine influenza is contagious and is spread-
ing from human to human. However, at this time,
it not known how easily the virus spreads be-
tween people.
What are the signs and symptoms of
swine flu in people?
The symptoms of swine flu in people are sim-
ilar to the symptoms of regular human flu and in-
clude fever, cough, sore throat, body aches,
headache, chills and fatigue. Some people have re-
ported diarrhea and vomiting associated with
swine flu. Like seasonal flu, swine flu may cause
a worsening of underlying chronic medical condi-
tions.
How does swine flu spread?
Spread of this swine influenza A (H1N1) virus
is, thought to be happening in the same way that
seasonal flu spreads. Flu viruses are spread main-
ly from person to person through coughing or
sneezing of people with influenza. Sometimes
people may become. infected by touching some-
thing with flu viruses on it and then touching
their mouth or nose.
How can someone with the flu infect
someone else?
Infected people may be able to infect others be-
ginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to
7 or more days after becoming sick. That means
that you may be able to pass on the flu to someone
else before you know you are sick, as well as while

CLINGING

TO THE

CROSS
By Greg Asimakoupoulos
Like most pastors, my father had a fascination with the
cross. He loved hymns that celebrated the mystery of Good
Friday His study at church had more than a few books on
the atonement. Unlike many of his Evangelical colleagues,
the wall over his desk boasted a crucifix. Even when my dad
transitioned from pastoral ministry into the business
world, that wooden crucifix graced his office.
When I became a pastor, my dad enjoyed comparing
notes. He would often relate observations he'd mined from
his personal study He'd share sermon illustrations he'd dis-
covered in real life he thought I could use. He would suggest
ways I might approach preaching a particular text. Simi-
larly I would regularly give him a preview of a forthcoming
series I was planning or walk him through my outline of
next Sunday's sermon.
Without fail, whenever I shared how I was planning to
preach on the cross, he would say: "Remember, Greg, the
message of the cross is not so much the physical torture
Christ endured. It's the fact that the sinless Son of God bore
the sin'of the world as he suffered, bled and died."
It's not an overstatement to say my dad gloried in the
cross. He saw in it a source of healing in life ankin death. It
was a mystery he held on to in both pleasant and challeng-
ing times. During my father's fourteen year battle with can-
cer, he often meditated on Isaiah 53:5. "But he was pierced
for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and
by his wounds we are healed."
My dad hoped for complete healing. When that did not
appear to be God's plan he took comfort knowing that he
had lived seven years longer than most with his particular
diagnosis. When his oncologist indicated my dad had just
weeks to live, I asked my congregation to pray for dying
grace.
One afternoon while stopping by to pray with a mem-
ber of our church battling throat cancer, Larry's wife said
he had something for my dad. She proceeded to hold out a
small hand-carved wooden cross. "It's a holding cross," she
explained. "It's asymmetrical shaped so that it fits easily in
your fingers as a meditation tool I ordered one for my hus-
band and one for your dad."
A couple days later Imade the two-and-a-half hour dri-
ve that had become a weekly pilgrimage. As I held out the


cross to my dad, his shriveled hand took hold of it. I ex-
plained about the shape of the cross and the woman who
had ordered it for him. His eyes teared up. A smile crossed
his face. It was as if he'd been given a million dollars.
For the last month of my dad's life, he clutched that lit-
tie olivewood cross continuously Whether watching his fa-
vorite cable news channel, The Price is Right or a Gaither
Homecoming video, he held on tightly to that cross. As
members of his small group dropped by to visit or the hos-
pice nurses attended to his needs, he clung to the cross.
What had been his focus in living defined his hope in dying.
The night my dad died, I sat by his bed reading the
Bible to him. Although he was unresponsive to my voice,
his right hand continued to cradle that little cross. He was
holding it securely when he took his last breath.
As we sang The Old Rugged Cross at his memorial ser-
vice, the lyrics took on new meaning for me. "So I'll cherish
the old rugged cross 'til my trophies at last I lay down. I will
cling to the old rugged cross and exchange it someday for a
crown. "No wonder St. Paul wrote, "God forbid that I should
glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ." (Gal. 6:14)

The Aucil
By Alfa Hunt
Special From The Monticello News
The Aucilla River rises close to Thomasville,
Ga. and passes through the Big Bend region of
Florida, emptying into the Gulf of Mexico at
Apalachee Bay The river is 75 miles long and has a
drainage basin of 747 square miles. The Wacissa
River is a tributary.
The Aucilla River forms the eastern border of
Jefferson County, separating it from Madison Coun-
ty on the northern tip, and from Taylor County to
the south. The lower'part of the river disappears un-
derground and reappears several
times. These areas are known as the
Aucilla River Sinks.
The years of 1830 and 1840s were
the eras of steamboats, canal build-
ing, an-. water traffic. Petitions were
continuously being sent to the Terri-
torial Council and to the United"
States Congress asking for improve-
ments to be made to the Aucilla and 'Il
Suwannee Rivers, which ,would :" -
make them more navigable.
One petition to Congress, refers
to the Committee on Internal Im-
provements on May 14, 1832, ex-
pressed the general idea:
"The Petition of the Undersigned
Inhabitants on or near the Aucilla
River respectfully represent that the
Counties of Jefferson and Madison,
and Thomas,. Lowndes and Ware in
Georgia are interested in the naviga-
tion- of the Aucilla River and if the
government will appropriate the
sum estimated by Lt. Long .the peti- Bridge ove
tioners believe themselves further
bound to say that not more than one fifth of the land
on the Aucilla Rive'r has been sold and remains on
hand, as petitioners believe in consequence of the
obstructions of said river"
The petition was signed by 115 men represent-
ing the above-mentioned counties.
The Territorial Legislative Council sent a reso-
lution to the next session of Congress, in 1833, also

asking for improvements to be made to the Aucilla
River, since improvements were already being made
to the Suwannee River.
Madison and Jefferson Counties decided to take
matters into their own hands and planned to make
the Aucilla river navigable themselves. Chartered in
1835, the Wacissa and Aucilla navigation Company,
was organized by a Legislative Council to clear and
make navigable" those rivers from the head of the
Wacissa to the Gulf of Mexico.
When the company was organized, Achille Mu-
rat was elected president and a fund of $25,000 was

quickly pledged. While the Aucilla and Wacissa
looked very ill-suited for navigation, the Wacissa
and Aucilla Navigation Company was "a manifesta-
tion of that optimistic age when Americans felt that
.nature was a phenomenon to be tamed and adapted
to man's needs," write Historian Jerrell Shofner:
The company soon began to languish, until the
1840s, when it was completely abandoned.


Madison


With the arrival of the railroad, transportation
improved greatly. The Georgia and Pensacola Rail-
road was headed for the East Coast from Tallahas-
see, and in 1859 contracts were drawn up to clear the
right of way and construct the roadbed into Madi-
son. The route would cross the Aucilla River near
Sandy Ford and pass slightly south of Madison.
Capt. Hardy H. Griffin was assigned that por-
tion from the Aucilla river to Station No. 5, which
-is now Greenville, and John C. McGehee received
the portion from Greenville to the town of Madi-
son. By the time of the war, .the road was complete,
leading from Jacksonville to Tallahas-

Florida was built across the Aucilla Riv-
er just north of the Seaboard Airline
% Railroad in 1911. The $3,000 cost to build
S.;the bridge was split between Jefferson
-. and Madison Counties.
Petitions for new roads were some-
times accompanied by offers of individ-
uals to share the costs. The Rocky Ford
-- Bridge, used for several decades by trav-
elers across the Aucilla River, was aban-
doned in 1911 and the new Covington
Bridge was declared to be the public fa-
cility in that part of the area. The new
bridge connected Covington in Taylor
County with the Jefferson County road
system.
The Aucilla River is a rich source of
late Pleistocene and early Holocene ani-
mal bones as weil as human artifacts,
-and happens to be the subject of the Au-
hoto Submitted cilla River Prehistory Project, which in-.
cludes the Page-Ladson prehistory site.
More than a decade after it began,
the Aucilla River Prehistory Project (ARPP) is rec-
ognized nationally and internationally for its con-
tributions towards the understanding of human.
and animal interaction during the late Pleistocene
era in Florida.
Each year the ARPP team produces substantial
new evidence of human, animal, and plant life
spanning the past 30,000 years.


M&Ms Chocolate Candies


By Alfa Hunt
Special From The.Monticello News
or es.t.Mars invented the recipe,
a o I&'Ms chocolate during the
ig&WlGViOvil Weir. He sW'soldiers:
eating pieces of chocolate covered
with a hard sugary coating. The
coating preventing the candy from
melting in the hot sun. Mars
received a patent for his
manufacturing process, March 3,
1941.
M&Ms chocolate were first sold to
the public in 1941, packaged in card-
board tubes. In 1948, the packaging
changed from a tube to the brown
plastic pouch known today. The letter
"m" is printed on each candy with
-vegetable dye. -
In 1954, "M&Ms Peanut Chocolate
Candies were introduced. That same
year, the M&Ms brand characters and
the famous slogan "The milk choco-
late melts in your mouth, not in your
hand" were both trademarked.
Mars was born March 21,.1904 in
Minnesota,, and raised in Canada af-
ter his parents divorced. He entered
the University of California at Berke-
ley and later transferred to Yale Uni-
versity where hd completed a degree
in industrial engineering in 1928.
His father, Frank C. Mars, had
Sbeeni operating a successful candy
business of his own in Chicago. It
was from this company, Mars, Inc.,
that the ever-popular Snickers, Milky
,Way, Three Musketeers and Mars
bars were born.
The younger Mars wanted to ex-
pand, but his father did not, so he
took a buyout from his father along
with the rights to sell- some of the
Mars brands overseas, and moved to
England.'


In Europe, Mars worked for Nes-
tle 'and Tobler to learn more about the
candy industry. He also set up a small
candy factory in England Eventually
he moved Back to'the U.S. and opened
his own food manufacturing busi-
ness, Food Products Manufacturing,
where he established the Uncle Ben's
rice line, and later gourmet pet food.
In 1940, he made his first, indepen-
dent move into the, candy
business in the United
States.
So m time

ar. shell.
He may
have seen soldiers -
eating them dtur-
ing the, Spanish ,
civil war, but no
One really knows.
In 1940, Mars concocted his own
version of candy-coated chocolate
drops and took them to the Hershey
Corporation. There he proposed an
80-20 partnership to Bruce Murrie,
the son of Hershey executive William
Murrie, where Bruce would be the 20-
percent partner. At the time, World
War II was developing, and chocolate
would be rationed during this period.
Mars struck a deal with Hershey
via Murrie, whereby Murrie would
provide some capital, and Hershey

would provide chocolate, sugar, and
the needed technology The partners
named the product for the first ini-
tials of their last names: M&Ms.
The design was 'patented onh
March 3, 1941. That year, M&M Co. be-
gan production in Newark, N.J., and
the first M&Ms went on sale. The can-
dy, originally sold in paper tubes,
came in the colors brown,; yellow, or-
ange, red,
green and vi-.
0 olet, later re-
^ placed by tan.
A year later,


World War II be-
gan, and M&Ms
quickly became
popular among
soldiers due to
their ability to
travel well and
withstand the
high tempera-
tures. Soon the
Armed Forces
Incorporated
M&M's into the
.... .. soldiers' C-RI-
tions and sold
o I them in Post Exchanges and
Ships Service Stores.
When the war ended, M&M's be-
come available to general public
again. Soon, Mars bought his busi-
ness partner out and took sole owner-
ship of the M&M candies brand.
In 1950, the company began im-
printing a black 'M' on each candy to
ensure customers they were getting
the "real thing." They also began to
heavily advertise the candy across
the nation..
In 1954 M&M Peanlut Chocolate
Candies. were introduced, and the


daily


original black M&M imprint was
changed to white. That year the com-
pany began television advertising us-
ing their current cartoon characters,
*Yellow,'id Rd'a,: nd launched its fa-
mous slogan, "The milk chocolate
that melts in your mouth, not in your
hand."
By 1958, demand for M&M's sur-
passed 1 million pounds per week. In
1981, M&M's even went to space. They
have since been included with food
rations for astronauts on more than
30 shuttle flights.
After the death of his father,
Mars took over the family business,
Mars, Inc., and officially merged his
company with it in 1964. During the
course of his career he also patented
a line of vending machines that used
electronic recognition system instead
of the typical weight drop mecha-
nism.
He.retired from Mars, Inc. in 1993
and started a new candy company,
Ethel M. Chocolates, which soon had
sales in the hundreds of millions.
Ethel M., named for Mars' mother,
joined M&M Inc. and Dove as
M&M/Mars in 2003. Today's brands
include Dove ice cream bars, Combos,
Twix, Kudos, and pet food brands Kal
Kan and Pedigree.
Mars died on July 1, 1999, at the
age of 95. At the time of his death, his
estimated net worth of $4 billion, ac-
cording to Forbes Magazine.
This made him one of the richest
people in the U.S. at the time. Mars'
sons, Forrest Mars, Jr. and John Mars
are now executives of the candy com-
pany The company is based in Hack-
ettstown, N.J. and employs 30,000
worldwide with sales of more than
$20 billion per year.

In February and
March 2009, Madison
County High School/
High Tech students dis-
cussed ideas on what
they could do for the com-
munity, and then they
brainedstormed many
ideas discussing the re-
sources needed to accom-
plish the task of helping
the community It was
also discussed on the con-
sequences if no one did
anything within.the com-
munity And with the
help of AmeriCorps Pro-
ject Impact Director Paul
Martel, Erin Pentoja and
Jennifer Jeftner, of Talla-
hassee, and Marylyn Gal-
lagher of Madison, the
students arrived at doing
a canned food drive, and
donating it to the Consol-
idated Christian Food
Ministries in Madison.


Tech ives 'Back I,000 Times


High Tech recently
ended a canned food dri-
ve, collecting 1,000
canned good items to be
donated to the Consoli-
dated Christian Min-
istries.
The High Tech club
set out a school wide
challenge to all first peri-
od classes with a prize of
a pizza party for whoever
collects the most items.
The winner of the
first period competition
was Kathryn Hale's class.
Second place was Bruce
.Thames' class, and Bar-
bara Davis' class came'in
third place.
Students decorated
many of the boxes and
were placed throughout
our community; they also
spent their Saturday
morning during the Four
Freedoms Day activities
at some of these loca-
tions collecting' canned


goods as well.
"The students came
together and made this a
success for our communi-
ty and each student felt
that they made a major
contribution to our com-
munity We could not
have done this without
the help of our parents
and assistant directors,
Mike Radel and Jean
James at the. high
school," stated Mary
Coody, director of MCHS
High Tech.
On Saturday morn-
ing, April 25, High Tech
was joined by staff from
the Impact program,'"and
assisted them in carrying
the 1,000 cans to the Con-
solidated Christian Min-
istries.
The students would
like to thank many of
those that contributed to
making this a successful
project: Harmony Baptist

Friday, May 1, 2009


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Last Friday, April
24, was National Arbor
Day Part of the annual
festivities included the
identification and nomi-
nation of "Champion
Trees," the largest
known examples of in-
dividual species in
Florida. For decades, the
Division of Forestry has
participated in certify-
ing champion tree
records and maintains a
list of more than 300
trees.
"What better way of
thinking about the bene-
fit of trees than for com-
mercial land' owners,
homeowners and those
hiking in the woods to
see if they can identify
large specimen trees
that we've missed,"
Commissioner of Agri-
culture Charles Bronson
noted. "Champions are
all around us, just wait-
ing to be discovered,
even in people's yards
and neighborhoods."
Procedures used by
the Florida Division of
Forestry for measuring
and scoring champion
trees are the same stan-
dards used by American
Forests, whose proce-
dures can be viewed on
that organization's Web
site, www.american
forests.org.
Some of the largest
concentrations of cham-
pion trees in Florida oc-
cur on public lands
managed by various
state and federal agen-


3. Crown Spread maximum
and minimum diameters in
feet.
Point System
1. Circumference 1 point
per inch.
2. Height 1 point per foot.
3. Average Crown Spread 1
point per 4 feet.
Photograph
A photograph should be sub-
mitted with each nomination.
1. Good scenic contrast. The
tree and any persons need to
be very clearly depicted for
printing processes. You may
need, to bracket your expo-
sure (-2, -1 normal, +1,4+2
exposure factors.), if that's
possible.
2. Capture as much of the
tree as possible, emphasizing
notable or unusual features,
as well as showing some
sense of scale and propor-
tion.
3. List the names of any per-
sons included in each photo-
graph from left to right.
4. Avoid scenic distractions,
such as power/telephone
wires, trash on ground, vehi-
cles, etc.


Nominate A Champion Tree


Nomination of a Florida
Champion Tree is open to all
species of trees that grow in
Florida, whether native or
naturalized. Palm trees are
included. Species listed as
invasive exotics by the
Florida Exotic Pest Plant
Council are ineligible for
nomination.
Eligibility
1. ave an erect, woody
main trunk that measures
more than 9.5 inches in cir-
cumference at 4.5 feet above
the average ground level.
2. Be more than 13 feet high,
as measured vertically for a
point level with the base of
the trunk
to the highest twig.
3. Have a definite crown of
branches or fronds.
Measurements
1. Circumference of the trunk
in inches 4.5 feet above the
average ground level. If the
trunk is forked, the circum-
ference should belAken at
the narrowest part below 4.5
feet, where knots or limbs do
not Interfere.
2. Height in feet.


Land S Timber Services Group,

EcoAsset Solutions And USF Team Win

State Carbon Sequestration Contract


This week, a team of partners from EcoAsset
Solutions, Land & Timber Services Group, and the
University of South Florida, were awarded a first-
of-its-kind state contract by the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection's Division of State
Lands for the development of a carbon inventory of
all lands acquired pursuant to Preservation 2000
and Florida Forever.
Senate Bill 542, which was passed during the


Grat Dane Mlower
ftm 5air Engine


1 J1700onln

Valdosta M2242-5617


2008 legislative session,
requires the Division of
State Lands to deter-
mine through the best
available science, the
value of carbon seques-
tration of state-owned
conservation lands. The
inventory process will
also. consider potential
carbon offset values of
various land manage-
ment practices and land


useconversion.
John Wakefield, senior vice president for
EcoAsset Solutions, stated, "We created an analyti-
cal framework to estimate carbon sequestration
and greenhouse gas emissions for the state-owned
lands that relies on the best scientific approaches
available."
.The team that was awarded the contract is lead
by EcoAsset Solutions' chief eEnvironmental sci-
entist, Sandra Kling. Tallahassee-based Land &
Timber Services Group will provide forest carbon
evaluations and enhancement strategies, said its
president, Jeff Main. The team will create baseline
comparisons of the land use and management prac-
tices pursued on these lands and their respective
carbon capture potential.
The resulting data will be developed into an ap-
propriate statewide carbon sequestration database
and summarized in a written report that includes
access to the developed database. The final report
will be delivered to the state by the end of July
"As momentum continues to build behind cli-
mate change policy at both the state and federal lev-
el,- our analysis will allow the [Division of State
Lands] to begin to identify ways that state lands can
be used opportunistically to offset [greenhouse gas]
emissions and potentially generate new revenue
streams, should a market-based cap and trade pro-
gram become a national mandate," stated Wake-
field.
Land & Timber Services Group is a leading
forestry consulting firm based in Tallahassee, and
pioneer in the forest carbon evaluation and markets
throughout the Southeast. EcoAsset Solutions LLC is
a subsidiary of Lykes Bros. Inc. and has carved out
a market as experts in climate change science.


"The Senator" is the
Florida Champion Bald-
cypress.

cies, including Wakulla
Springs State Park near
Tallahassee and the var-
ious National Wildlife
Refuges in the Florida
Keys.
In fact, a new na-
tional champion pyra-
mid magnolia was just
discovered this month
on Lake Talquin State
Forest near Quincy Nev-
ertheless, Bronson be-
lieves that there are
many potential winners
just waiting to be discov-
ered all around us. .
The Division of
Forestry's Web site,
www.fl-dof.com, will
soon have a champion
tree page, where the
public can find Florida's
largest specimen of any
tree species. In the


meantime, residents can
contact Charlie Marcus
at (850) 921-0300 or their
local county forester for
more information about
the program or to nomi-
nate a tree as a Champi-
on Tree.
If participating in
the Champion Tree pro-
gram is not an option,
there are a number of
other ways to celebrate
National Arbor Day.
Many local communi-


ties conducted celebra-
tions in schools, church-
es, youth groups, adult
organizations and local
governments. And they
were all celebrating
trees, something that-
most people take for
granted, even though
the silent giants literal-
ly give us the air .that we
breath.

third Graders

I The 19th Annual 4-H/NFCC Ecology Field Day
;asheld on Thursday, April 9 at North Florida Com-
iunity College. Third, graders from all over Madi-
soniCounty came to learn about Florida's Ecology
There were 53 college volunteers from NFCC that
helped guide the groups and assist presenters.
There were about 245 third grade students present.
TAe-students were split into seven groups and rotat-
Sdtbetween seven amazing presenters! The sky was
blear, the sun was hot, and the insects were out.
,("The first presenter was Dr. Chuck Cichra com-
ihg from Gainesville to teach the students about fish
and insects. The students broke up into groups of
three and each group got a net and a bucket to share.
They filled their bucket with the pond water and
wbnt to work. They were able to catch a variety of
aquatic life right there on the waters edge. All the
bh6kets were then put on the table and Dr. Cichra ex-
afiined the organisms in each bucket as he. ex-
plained each fish or insect that was found. He also
brought water scorpions, predacious water beetles,
At' crayfish. The students loved this very hands-on
prsentation.
-'B The second station was Jerome Wyche and his
assistant Theresa Williams, speaking about recy-
cling. The students were able to see and touch a bale
of-Cardboard that weighted 900 pounds. The stu-
dents learned what happens to, the materials that
thdy send to the recycling center. They saw many
different types of recycled materials and how they
are'used to make new things. They saw recycled car-
t'inaterial, shredded money, and oil that had. been
cleaned. Wyche discussed composting and making
O6fl-by using recycled materials especially, vegetable
discards andworms. The worms can be even sold to.
fike InOnriey. -Each student received a t-shirt with a
meycling logo on it, bracelet, pen, pencils and color-
ing books.
- i;"The third station was Ashley Melton from the
Department of Environmental Protection Agency
in Tallahassee. She spoke about water quality. She
split the students into smaller groups and had each
rotup take a sample from the pond to test the ponds
waterr quality. They tested for pH (acidity), tempera-
ture, turbidity (cloudiness of water) and dissolved

oxygen and the students
checked the color of their vials
with the chart colors to tell how
much oxygen was in the pond.
The tests showed the qualities
that are important in a healthy
pond.
The fourth station was Jan
Peters from FAMU and her as-
sistants, who spoke about Ento-
mology, the study of insects.
The students were given nets
and jars and they ran off to go
and find some insects! They
classified all the insects found
and then were able to look at
the insect collections that Pe-
ters had brought. After that
they all gathered around to get
a chance to hold about a four-
inch Madagascar Hissing Cock-
roach. Some backed away but
there were some brave students
who stepped up to the chal-
lenge. .

The fifth station was Jim Fleming and his assis-
tants speaking about Forest Ecology They spoke
about what forestry is and the job of foresters. They
identified trees and explained some of the differ-
ences between them. They showed the different
tools that are used in the event of a forest fire and
how to use them. Each student took with them a
hand out about the different types of trees. They
helped the students appreciate the importance of
trees. '
The sixth station was Barry Barnhart, who
spoke about Plants, Pioneers and Indians. He gave
explanations on things we use every day that are
found in nature such as sassafras that is used in root
beer. He also spoke about health remedies used by
the Indians,, such as camphor leaves that were used
for Vicks rub and wax myrtle that was a mosquito
repellent. He got down on the student's level and ex-
plained how important nature is to our daily lives.
Two of his famous sayings were "Plants Rule!" and
"Remember to be good to Nature as Nature is good
to you.'"
The seventh and last station was with Bern
Smith and his assistants speaking about Natural Re-
sources Conservation. Smith showed the students'
the different layers of soil and what the differences
are with each layer. His assistants demonstrated
how to use a land-surveying tool while Smith
demonstrated using an auger, which is a digging
tool that twists into the ground to pull up soil. Each
student had an opportunity to try using each tool.
They helped students understand the importance of
soil conservation. He showed different soil samples
that were displayed in long boxes showing the soil
horizons, and which soil was better for growing
crops.
This was a hands-on educational experience
about a variety of subjects about ecology The stu-
dents were interested and engaged at every station
and were able to take home an appreciation for
Florida's Ecology Some
of the teachers and pre-
senters commented that
this year has been the
best and most organized.
Thanks to all of the
above presenters, their
assistants and the NFCC
volunteers that made
this opportunity avail-
able to these third
S-graders. The 4-H agent
Mrs. Heather Johnson
and the NFCC Biology in-
Photo Submitted structor Mrs. Bonnie Lit-
gs to examine, at the Fish & tlefield coordinated and
facilitated this event.
