Click It Or Ticket Campaign,


Beginning May 18 through,
May 31, Florida's Ninth Annual
"Click it or Ticket" campaign
. will. jaunch a statewide crack .
down on all un-buckled drivers,
and passengers. The enforce-
ment campaign will kick off
ahead of the Memorial Day,
Weekend, which usually has the
highest annual traffic death toll.


The Madison County Sher-
iff's Office, in conjunction with
the Office of Motor Carrier Com-
pliance and the Florida Highway
Patrol, will be participating in
this campaign throughout Madi-
son County as a cooperative ef-
fort. to promote compliance and
awareness.
Safety Belt use has increased


26 percent in the State of Florida
since the State first joined Click
It or Ticket in 2001. However, the
Floridians who do not wear seat
belts continue to make up the
majority of the roadway body
count. In 2007, the one in five'
Floridians who did not buckle up
accounted for three in five traffic
fatalities.

Chicken producer Pilgrim's Pride, which has
filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, reported
that its second-quarter
loss narrowed as costs
declined in its chicken
business.
The Pittsburg,

Securities and Exchange
Commission last Thurs-
day, that it lost $58.8 mil- t
lion, or 79 cents a share,
in the three-month peri-
od that ended March 28. That's about half of the
company's year-ago reported loss of $111.4 million,
or $1.67 a share.,
Sales fell 19 percent to $1.7 billion from $2.1 bil-
lion last year. The company has been curbing pro-
duction to balance inventory, pricing and demand.

The youth group from Unity Baptist Church in Hanson has been very busy
the past few days, raising money for flood victims in the Pinetta area. After
spaghetti dinners, a yard sale, a car wash, a bake sale and a lot of'hard work, they
presented Chief Allen Shadrick with a check for over $2,000 on Saturday, May 2.
The youth are seen here in front of the Pinetta Firehouse with Chief Shadrick.

The Pinetta Volunteer File Department thanks each and every person for
their help preparing meals, delivering meals, kitchen support, money donations,
food donations and special needs to all our flood victims. This newspaper does
not have enough pages to name each and every person who has shown their
love to our neighbors in need.
Friday, May 15, will be the last supper meal the Pinetta VFD will prepare .for
our flood victims. Even though the meals may stop, our support as a communi-
ty will continue for our flooded neighbors. You are invited to come and share this
last meal with the firehouse family, flood victims and special helpers. Please join
the group from 5:30 to'7 p.m. at the Pinetta Firehouse 509, NE Persimmon Dr.,
Pinetta. This is a small way of saying THANK YOU for all they have done.

Letters ToThe lEd~itorI


Letters to the Editor are typed word for word, comma for comma, as sent to this newspaper.


How's Your Constitution?


Pulling

Through The

Tough Times
I would like to thank every one who has taken
the time to pray for my family and me. Believe hfib; I
could not make it Without the fervent prayers of
righteous men and women.
It seems that the last few weeks have been a tor-
rent of activity for me. Once my life seems to appear
stable, something always happens to destroy the bal-
ance in it. I am tired of doctor's visits, hospital vis-
its, out-of-town appointments with physicians and
missed work hours. Although I am worn out from all
of it, I will keep doing it, though, because I love my
family. ,
I would also like to thank every one for their
kind words of encouragement. The B.ible tells us
that "A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pic-
tures of silver." (Proverbs 25:11) I cannot tell you
how many times that I have been lifted up by a kind
comment from a friend, a co-worker or one of my
readers.
I have made a conscious effort lately to also offer
encouragement to others and to pay sincere compli-
ments where they are due. I'm human, however, and
sometimes forget. Sometimes, I've even surprised
people and they look at me suspiciously like I'm up
to something.
I hope to always appreciate prayers and encour-
agement. They have pulled me through the though
times. Thank you once again!


According to Webster, our
authority on the English lan-
guage, constitution has two pri-
mary definitions: 1) The
physical makeup of the individ-
ual, comprising inherited quali-
ties modified by environment.
Generally, when we speak of our
constitution, we refer to how
well and/or healthy we are phys-
ically and emotionally. Hence:
Constitution: Health!
2): An established law or cuxs-
tom. The art of establishing,
making, or setting up a system of
laws.
The basic principles and
laws of a nation, state, or social
group that determine the powers
and duties of the government,
and guarantee certain rights to
the people in it.
Definition 1) refers to the
healthy status of an individual.
.Definition 2) refers to the
functionally healthful status of a
community of people.,
Do you understand that the
healthy status of our great na-
tion depends on its constitution?
Historically, the U. S. Consti-.
tution is the greatest set of rules
ever devised by civilized man, al-
lowing more freedom and liberty
to the governed. The reason for
this: the Constitution was craft-
ed BY the citizens, written FOR
the citizens, and addressed TO
the Citizens of, the United States


of America.
Government BY the people
RESTRICTS (limits) the power of
those elected to administer those
limited, enumerated powers of
Congress stated in the Constitu-
tion.
The health of the United
States as a sovereign nation de-
pends on the enforcement of our
Constitutional laws.
two....
WHO is to blame for the con-
dition of our nation?
The bottom line: the VOT-
ERS!
The major problem: abject
ignorance of the Constitution
and how our government is sup-
posed to be administered (civics).
I spent nearly 20 years work-
ing as an inspector at various
polling (voting) locations; plus
some fifty years actively en-
gaged in "politics."
It has been obvious as the
nose on one's face that at least
50% of those who actually vote
have NO clue about any candi-
date or proposition on the bal-.
lot.
Unfortunately, the only in-
formation on issues and/or can-
didates a voter gets is a biased,
slanted sound bite on TV or oth-
er media, mostly controlled by
left-leaning media-moguls.
Also, just as unfortunately,
many voters will cast their illit-


rate vote and never even think
about the government until the
next election! This is insane.
No one drives their car with-
out occasionally checking the
gas gauge, to make sure the tank
isn't near empty Never check-
ing on or contacting your elected
representatives at all levels occa-
sionally is just as insane.
In a nutshell: 1). KNOW the
Constitution, and understand
the limited, enumerated powers
of Congress. 2) Keep an eye on
your elected officials...from lo-
cal, city, county, state and nation-
al.
three
Tell them what you like and
what you don't like about their
performance.
The truth is, when the voter
ignores the elected official, that
official will believe that the voter
does not care what he/she does,
That, my friend, is not a gov-
ernment OF the people, BY the
people, and FOR the people. It is
abandoning your personal, indi-
vidual responsibility to maintain
a healthy constitution in your
government. I

Did You Ever Go

Sailin' Down The

River Of Memory
When I heard that the circus is coming to Lee
tonight, (this is Tuesday morning), joyous childhood
memories flooded my mind. Also adult ones such as
rqping the carousel not too many years ago! Like most
all children, I loved circuses, carnivals and fairs, and
Jacksonville and Atlanta zoos. I rode a huge elephant
at Jacksonville and a much larger camel at the annual
fair, -also not too many years ago.
That camel was so large that a platform stair had
been built for people to climb in order to reach his
back! And how I loved the parade when the circus
came to town!
Then, of course, the beloved clowns; the beauti-
ful girls in skimpy costumes riding the elephants as
they did tricks on command, the daring animal train-
ers and snarling tigers; the "daring young men on the
flying trapeze" (and girls);the loud collective gasp from
the crowd as the man was shot from the cannon; and
who could ever forget that music? I still love the sound
of the calliope!
I'm sure I haven't covered everything about a
circus there were those huge elephants balancing all
four feet on.a round ball, for instance. How on earth do
they manage that? And I'm sure you will remember
more but you get the picture, I know.
That's why I was glad to hear that the Liebling
circus is coming eventhough it's a one day event as the
circus heads north for the season. Two or three years
ago, I contacted Tom Liebling for our Lee festival but
we could not coincide our event with his schedule.
Once on his way home, he wanted to stop over for the
weekend, but it was only two weeks after Lee Day and
we could not accommodate him. He really wanted me
to ride his elephant and I would have-then!
I thank Tom sincerely for working with Cheryl
on a charity event for Building Blocks and look for-
ward to next years Lee Day when his circus will prob-
ably be the star attraction. Great work, Cheryl!,

Dear Friends and Neighbors:
I Need Your Help,
In May 20071 paid 90,ooo$ for a half purchase of a beautiful, historic
building on downtown Range Street. The remainder of 95.ooo$-is due
on May 24, 2009. I purchased the property to help out my financially
troubled "friend" who promised to hold the remainder of the note. I put
my home in Lovett for sale with the intention of selling it sometime during
the next 2 years, paying off the building, renovating it into business space
downstairs and a loft apartment upstairs. Great plan... or so I thought.
Unfortunately the real estate market took a nose dive... There was a
"good possibility my house wouldn't sell. Defensively, I put the Range
Street building up for sale also... With real estate at a stand-still'neither
property sold. I was certain my trusted friend and I would work
mutual benefit. After
all, I was there for her
when help was needed.
Certainly she would be
.there for me. However .
this is not the case.
Although I had many f --
lowers offers for the
Range Street property... -
My "friend" declined the . I .'
offers". Yet secretly, she '.
drastically reduced the
mortgage and sold it to
an out of town investor,
without my knowledge,
for pennies on the
dollar... had I been
offered the same
reduction I wouldn't be
writing you this letter. I
put myself out on a
limb... and now the limb
has been sawed off..

The new owner is not interested in working with me to our mutual
benefit.... His response to my pleas... "No doubt you and millions more
Americans are in a short money crisis. We are not a charity. We are in the
business of making money. Our position in providing any extension to you
is very simple, we will not. We will start foreclosure on you on May 24"...
Unless I am able to sell my home, or the Range Street building I will lqse
everything.
It is my fervent prayer someone will step forward and purchase the
Range Street building, or my precious home in Lovett, or partner with me
on the Range Street building. I used my retirement to make this purchase.
I am walking in faith that God will defend me against this back stabbing
betrayal and send a miracle to see me through.
Ihave heard stories from all across the country of friends and families
standing by each other in these hard economic times. It's heartening to
see our American spirit at its finest. It seems we Americans do our best
work when the going gets tough. Unfortunately a tough economy also
brings out the worst in people.

tected and. minimal amounts of marijuana residue
was located throughout the vehicle. A large amount
of US Currency was also located in a travel bag in
the back seat. The currency was packaged in a com-
mon manner that is indicative of illegal narcotics
activity.

ed the vehicle to the Madison County Jail where
Sergeant DavidlHarper of the Sheriff's Office "Drug
Task Force" arrived to assist. Sgt. Harper concealed
the currency in an item within a secured structure,
unknown to Corporal Maurice and K-9 "Chase" to
allow an additional K-9 search of the currency Cor-
poral Maurice introduced K-9 "Chase" to the se-
cured structure for a search. K-9 "Chase" alerted to

trieved the item revealing the currency hidden in-
side.

gross profit of $97.7 million. Last year in the second
quarter, when costs were higher, the company's chick-
en business lost $35.4 million.
Pilgrim's Pride filed for bankruptcy protection:
late last year, saddled by debt and hurt by an oversup-
ply of chicken, which depressed retail prices, in addi-:
tion to high costs for animal feed made from
expensive corn and soybeans. Producers have been
cutting production and shedding inventory to help
bolster pricing. i
Pilgrim's Pride's inventories are shrinking, ac-I
cording to the filing. At the end of March, the compa-
3ny had $825.5 million in inventory, down 20 percent
.from $1 billion last year. The company has also been
selling assets and trimming jobs to cut costs. h
Separately, the company said Thursday it has1
agreed to sell its chicken complex in Farmerville, La.,I
to Foster Farms for $80 million. The transaction is ex-
pected to close within 30 days, subject to FosterI
Farms' receipt of $40 million from the State ofl
Louisiana in order to fund a portion of the purchases

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Building a thriving community after decades of employer
and educational challenges is hard. Doing it with little resource
makes it near impossible. And yet, when a force of caring profess
sionals stands up and says, "We will fill the gap!" anything is poss
ble.
Building Blocks Summer Camp in Lee was built with that i
mind: providing youth the building blocks from a happy and health
life.
Starting June 1, the second year of Building Blocks Summe
Camp will begin under newly appointed director Peg McCarthy Th
current leader of the Lee Adventurers 4-H Club, McCarthy brings
wealth of professional and community service experience to th
camp. Town Manager Cheryl Archambault, who, along with th
-mayor and town Council, was instrumental in launching the excel
tional program, is extremely pleased to have her as director.
'"Peg McCarthy is exactly what the camp needed to make a great
program even better. The commitment from community leadership
and concerned residents who realize that having a constructive sun
mer program to develop and care for our most precious resource -
our children has been incredible," Archambault explained.
"There's nothing for kids to do," is a statement that has bee:
ringing throughout the county for years. "We aren't preparing chi
dren for good jobs," is another. Consequently, these two negative
statements became the guideposts for the 10-week curriculum tha

kShtire the


i .tory,


Captain John Livingston Inglis


By Alfa Hunt
Greene Publishing, Inc.
John Inglis was one of Florida's
most successful businessmen in the
latter part of the 19th century follow-
ing the Reconstruction. His business
insight was invaluable to the residents
of Madison and the surrounding ar-
eas of North Florida and
South Georgia.
Inglis was born in
Liverpool, -England,
Jan. 1, 1837, to An-
drew Inglis and
Sarah Liy-
Sihgston. Andrew
was educated at
the grammar
school in West
Cowes, Isle of
Wight, and, as
a. young man,
came to
Philadelphia,
Pa., where he
* was an appren-
tice in steel
works. Inglis
would later follow
his father in com- ..
ing to the country,
while in the company
of his Aunt, Mag
Townsend.
She brought him' to Madi-
son, so he could meet his Livingston
relatives before he traveled to
Philadelphia to live with his father. He
lived in Philadelphia for the next three
years, before he relocated to St. Marks
,where he was to establish a sawmill.
While he was in St. Marks, the Civ-
il War erupted, and sympathizing with
his Southern cousins, joined the Con-
federate army. nglis enlisted as a pri-
vate in the Wakulla Guards at
Newport. His company was stationed
at Fort Williams, along the mouth of
the St. Marks River. Later, he was reas-
signed to the 2nd Florida Regiment,
p eventually becoming its Captain.


In Dec. 1864, Inglis was captured at
the battle of Nashville, Tn. and was
held as a POW until the end of the war,
five months later, at Johnson's Island,
Ohio.
After the war, Inglis' father, An-
drew, established a partnership with
Samuel B. Thomas and Archie Liv-
ingston in Madison County.
The resulting company
would become known as
the Florida Manufac-
turing. Company, a.
Principal Sea Is-'
land cotton gin in
the South fors
many years.
In August
of 1866, An-
drew signed
agreements
with two local
merchants in
order to obtain
the company.
Andrew was ap-
parently the
mastermind, as
he was the :ma-
Schinist, construc-
tion engineer, and
millwright, while
Thomas and Livingston
were the moneymen.
Andrew designed the plant
and supervised the operation. He was
to receive a salary of $1,000 annually
and one-third of the profits. He died a
year after the agreement was signed;
and historians doubt that the cotton
gin was completed before his death.
Inglis would then "inherit" the posi-
tion his father held as the mastermind
of the Florida Manufacturing Compa-
ny and eventually become its only
owner.
Inglis married the daughter of his
father's partner, Louisa "Miss Lou"
Thomas, Nov. 17, 1869. The couple had
seven children: Beatti Andrew, John L.
Jr., Louisa Thomas, Allick Wyllie,


William Lawtey, Andrew, and Edgar
Auchincloss. John, Jr. and Andrew
both died as infants.
Louisa's parents moved from
Thomas County, Ga. to Madison Coun-
ty, in a wagon with their one child,.
Frank, and a small slave girl. After set-
tfling in Madison, the Thomas couple
would have more children. Louisa had
two sisters, Jane and Ashton, along
with two brothers, including Frank.
Jane married Chandler Smith,
while her sister, Ashton, never mar-
ried. When Ashton'si parents died, she
came to live with the Inglis family*
Capt: Inglis would provide her with a
job at the Florida Manufacturing Com-
pany, making her the first woman to
work in an office in Madison County.
The Inglis children were all edu-
cated in Madison County schools be-
fore beginning their college years.
Beattie first attended the Citadel in
South Carolina, and later, Stevens
Tech in New Jersey Louisa Thomas at-
tended Agnes Scott School, which at"
the time was called the Institute. Al-
lick and Lawtey both went to V.M.I.
but, graduated from Georgia Tech.
Edgar attended Vanderbilt.
Inglis' one sister, Marianne, who
married Allick Wyllie. Wyllie came to
Florida several times from his home.
in Scotland and invested in the phos-
phate, business. Inglis'
brother, Robert, fought
with the Union army
during the Civil War and
later settled in Wiscon-
sin, where he became a
Customs Officer.
After operating sev-
eral successful sawmills
and cotton gins for sev-
eral years, Inglis ob-
tained. financial backing
and organized a major
facility known as the
Madison Cotton Ginning
Co. In 1889, this compa-
ny was converted into The home


the largest cotton ginning establish-
ment in the world.
The facility was so large that 50
gins, with an expansion potential 'of
75, were able to run simultaneously.
The facility also included a refinery
for the production of cottonseedcbil,
and also had a fertilizer factory. Ingi is'
large' businesses not only provided
work for, many-residents of Madison
County but also provided a means-for
farmers throughout the area to iar-
ket their own cotton crop.
That year, the Madison new*gpa-
per wrote that Inglis "...is at the head
of one of the most magnificent estab-
lishments in the South....we ieed
more Inglises here..."
During the last few years of his
life, Inglis spent most of his time in
Jacksonville where he enjoyed trael-
ing, yachting, and collecting beatifful
objects. He was also an active member
of. Robert E. Lee Camp, United bon-
federate Veterans, and was elddted
Commander of the Florida Division
of the United Confederate Vetethns
during the' Confederate Reunion in
1914.
Capt. Inglis died after a shorA ill-
ness at his home in Jacksonvilld in
1917; he was 80 years old. His Body
was reportedly buried in Oak R idge
Cemetery in Madison. n

uded in those efforts is in-
ruction on personal
sponsibility, community ser-
ice, academics and, of course,

The Children and Youth
coordinator for the church is
arla Hanners. Along with her
sband, Keith. and adult vol-
nteers like Jason Archam-
ult, the teens and young
adults at Lee UMC are fed a
healthy spiritual diet ranging
from conventional studies to
creative entertainment, includ-
ing dinner theatre and a clown
ministry.
To enhance the programs
id provide the youth with a
instructive and fun environ-
Sent for activities, the church


ministryy Refining Hearts and Souls


created the "Refinery," a meet-
ing facility located on the back
corner of the church grounds
complete with cool furnishings
and games that promote learn-
ing and give the teens a place to
hangout. For years, parents
and citizens throughout the
community have remarked,
"There's nothing for kids to
do." In contrast,' the Refinery
not only gives kids something
to do, but also provides a Chris-
tian environment while doing
it.
During Wednesday night
services on May 6, the youth
ministry also unveiled their
new logo and verse on a color-
ful banner. It will hang at the
Refinery and also be used for T-
shirts they're making to raise
awareness and funds for sever-
al timely church and communi-
ty projects. The T-shirts are
anticipated to cost between $10-
15 dQllars each depending on


size and style, and all proceeds
will go to support the ministry.
Those wishing to purchase one
of the stylish shirts, or to gra-
ciously make a love offering,
are asked to call (850) 971-5585.
Also present at the Wednes-

a staff member of the Disaster

The recent flooding in
Madison County brought out
an incredible outpouring of

ming Calories Hot


trients- 1t The Gym
good workout might leave you feeling tired
Sr'hore reasons than you think. Regular intense
,OsSical activity can deplete the body of impor-
tant vitamins and minerals, causing weekend
warriors and world-class athletes alike to feel
sluggish and tired.
T-Eombine that activity with a calorie- and nu-
trigdt-cutting diet and you may be looking at a de-
pletion double whammy.
Jenna A. Bell-Wilson, Ph.D., R.D., CSSD, a
asoirts dietitian with SwimBikeRunEat.com and
-Ai4thlete, says, "Minerals, such as magnesium,
ri tn and potassium, can become depleted with
-frequent and intense exercise, especially if your
biee doesn't-measure up. For (example, research
nba. found that people doing strenuous exercise or
a.ctjve people cutting calories to lose weight are
especially vulnerable to magnesium loss."
EATING WELL Eating magnesium-rich
foods, such as peanuts, tofu and broccoli, should
be an important part of your daily diet. You can
find: the nutrient in certain types of fish, fruits
and' vegetables including bananas and arti-
chboes and grains, as well. Bell-Wilson notes,
"If athletes are deficient in magnesium, potassi-
umti'or iron, it can affect their muscle function,
make them feel tired, weaker and not getthe most
out- of their workouts. Nutrient deficiencies like
this can have a negative impact on overall well-
beiig because our bodies rely on these minerals
to'ftnction properly."
HEALTHFUL SOLUTIONS Only about a
third of Americans have enough magnesium in
their diet, according to the USDA, which offers re-
8 ch and statistics on magnesium and other nu-
tfieits, available at www.ars.usda.gov/services/

Clear Does Hot Hean Clean!


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The 500-year flood
may be subsiding, but
the damages from it are
just now being calculat-
ed. Along the way, one
concern that may not be
getting the action it ab-
solutely needs is conta-
minated water.
"Clear does not
mean clean," is a state-
ment being, heard from
health officials every-
where, as many resi-
dents, especially those
with well water, must un-
derstand for the safety of
themselves and their
families. In other words,
water can be crystal
clear with.no smell what-
soever and be heavily
contaminated. Just ask
this reporter, who along
with hundreds through-
out the Lee' area, found
out after getting their
water tested. The tests
are regularly coming
back with severe bacteri-
al contamination, even e-
coli, with no visible
signs whatsoever.
Not wanting to
cause a scare, wells can
be sufficiently treated
and the health depart-
ment will run two tests
at no charge, but resi-
dents must take action.
Everyone is strongly
urged not to adopt a ca-
sual attitude, character-
ized by some of the
following casual com-
ments that have been
made.
"Oh well, -you're
gonna' die of some-
thing," or "If my wife's

water won't hurt me," or
"They're just trying to
'justify' their jobs and
cover themselves," or
the grand daddy of all
excuses, "If it's your
time to go, what can you
do about it?"
Seriously, treating
contaminated water is
critical, and as with all
health threats, local and
state leadership are urg-
ing everyone- to have
their water tested. For a
