The sanctions were brought

committing infractions involving
the 'Florida Comprehensive As-
sessment Test (FCAT) during her
tenure as principal of Greenville
On May 20, 2003, the Madison
County School Board voted to re-
move Gail French as principal at

Aileen Wuornos, the killer of seveil men, would
hitchhike along the Interstate in Florida and shoot
her victims after they pulled off a quiet road to have
sex. She would then rob them, take their vehicles
and ditch the cars later. One of the vehicles was
found in Suwannee County.
Wuornos .murdered her last victim in .Dixie
Ernie Page III, who prosecuted the Dixie County
case, said Wuornos was arrested after a man, who
had picked her up from a truck stop, reported the in-
cident.. He had heard about the other murders and
when they got down. the road, he realized who she
.,"He told her he wanted to pull off and get some
beer and he gave her the money and said, 'You run
in and get it,'" Page said. "As soon as she got out of
.that car, buddy, he took off scared to death."
Wuornos confessed to the murders while in jail,
but later claimed she had -acted in self defense in
Page secured the death penalty against
Wuornos in the Dixie County case. She received a to-
tal of six death sentences for her crimes and was ex-
ecuted in 2002.
Wuornos, who was touted at the time as the na-
tion's first female serial killer, was perhaps Page's
most prominent case. But there were others.
Page also handled one of the largest drug traf-
ficking cases in the Third Circuit. It involved a pair
of international drug smugglers who set up an op-
eration on their property in Madison County. The
operation included an airplane, a landing strip and
a hangar of which some said was larger than the
Madison County Courthouse.
"They were going to South America and buying
marijuana from drug lords and bringing it up here
by the ton," Page said.
After their arrest, Thomas Geers and Joseph
Valverde broke out of the Madison County Jail and
weren't located until some years later. Federal
agents caught Valverde landing a cargo plane loaded

No! No! No! No thank you!
I just read the Madison County Carrier, dated 5-

another water plant in Madison County upset me
very much. I don't care who owns the land. I am sick
of all the trucks now on St. Rd. 6. It is like an inter-
state with speeding and many trucks. This is a farm-
ing community We know how to deal with farm

the semis. Ask the people that live on St. Rd. 6 if they
want another water plant.

Workforce Bringing Together Employers And Jobseekers
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Workforce recently moved from its home atop the
Wachovia Bank building in downtown Madison to a very
comfortable new and convenient home in the DeSoto
(Harvey's) Plaza. The available resources housed in the
facility are numerous, providing critical work tools and
training for jobseekers, especially in this challenging
A recent press release noted that Madison County's
not-seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for April
was 10.1 percent, representing no change from March,
but up from the year-ago rate of 5.6 percent. April's rate
represents 701 jobless out of a labor force of 6918. The re-
gional unemployment rate, which includes Hamilton,
Jefferson, Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee, and Taylor,
Counties, was 8.9 percent. On an encouraging note, each
county in the region either remained at the same unem-
ployment level as the previous month or decreased
slightly Florida's not-seasonally adjust rate is 9.3 per-
cent, with a seasonally adjusted rate of 9.6 percent.
Workforce also announced that Elaine Henderson
was the Employee of the Quarter. In recognition of her
achievement, Executive Diiector. Sheryl Rehberg pre-
sented her a handsome certificate. Henderson has served
as Employer Services Representative since 2006.
Set For May 31
World No Tobacco Day is celebrated around the
world every year on May 31 to inform the public on
the dangers of using tobacco, the marketing prac-
tices of tobacco companies, and steps that the World
Health Organization is taking to combat the tobacco
This year's theme is "Tobacco Health Warnings"
ank wilM focus on strengthening the warning labels
found on tobacco products. Tobacco companies use
packaging and other advertising techniques to make
tobacco appealing, while -distracting consumers
from the harsh reality of how tobacco destroys
health. .The goal is to increase the size of warning
labels to cover half the tobacco package.
I In recognition of World No Tobacco Day, Tobac-
co Free Florida is spotlighting its latest online ini-
tiative to encourage Floridians to stop smoking. It
takes courage to quit tobacco, and even more to
record your- journey for the world to see. But three
tobacca&ts~s have launched the Quit.Journals pro-
grffi'y Kthrinif the challenges they faced on their
journey to become tobacco free. From a father of
twb, to a struggling college student, these brave
soils have documented their experience becoming
tobacco free in hopes that their example might pro-
vide others with the strength to.do the same. Their
videos can be viewed at
STobacco Free Florida is a statewide effort to ed-
ucate the public about the dangers of all tobacco use
and to help those who use tobacco to "Be Free" and
break the cycle of addiction. The. campaign has
reached millions of Floridians through its advertis-
ing, online social media, grassroots initiatives, edu-
cational outreach and public relations efforts.

who graciously sat in for Board Chair
Clyde Alexander who was regrettably
unable to attend, the microphone was
turned over to Superintendent Lou
Miller. With Kleenex in hand to wipe
away the tears, she introduced each re-

Wilson Family Band Coming To Sirmans Baptist
By Bryant Thigpen
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Sirmans Baptist Church will
be hosting the Wilson Family
Band on Saturday, June 13, at 7
p.m. Admission is free. Sirmans
Baptist is located on First Federal
Road in Greenville.
Robert toured the east coast
with River Grass Revue in the
80's, achieving some modest suc-'
cess. He plays very strong rhythm
guitar and has a very fine, slightly
gravelly baritone voice, which
carries the family's vocal perfor-
mance and blends well with his
two children in the trios. Seeing
his obvious pride and love as he
watches daughter Katie and son
Clint beside him on the stage
moves everyone who sees this
Clint is a 19-year-old college
freshman in Waycross, Ga., who
commutes to school while making
a major commitment to growing
himself as a musician. Olint's
voice continues to improve almost
as fast as his very fine musician-
ship. His work as emcee during
the family's performances has be-
come sure handed and amusing.
Katie has been a star since
she was 10 years old. Her perfor-
mance on the fiddle has become
increasingly inventive and ma-
ture as she grows into this very
difficult instrument. Top fiddlers
like, Becky Buller and Aubrey
Haynie, have taken an interest in
her development. Her voice has
begun to grow as she riatures and
shows promise of lOming a fine
bluegrass instrumentalist. Her
songwriting continues to con-
tribute significant content to the
Melissa, wife and mother, pro-
vides a quiet and steady presence,
both on and off the stage. Keeping
the family fed on the road, manag-
ing behind the scene details, on
overseeing the many tasks of a se-
rious touring band, she's always
present and in charge.
Blake Gowen, Robert's
nephew, has recently joined the
band on bass. While leading the
life of a busy ninth grader, he
manages to get to the family's
home in Folkston, Ga., for re-
hearsals and travel with the band.
While he's new to the bass, he has
shown early promise.
Solid family values provide
the glue that keeps The Wilson
Family Band's feet firmly planted
in home, school, church and mu-
sic. The single, "Family Ties,"
from their latest CD captures the
strength of this bond. This is a
family that lives its values at
home and communicates them
through their music in the lyrics
and in their musical performance.

"Fraud's Work In Florida"
A Recount from 1878 -
By Alfa Hunt
Greene Publishing, Inc.'
By the 1870s, the U.S.
government was set on
the Reconstruction of
the Old South. In Flori-
da, reported the Nov. 17,
1880, edition of the New
York Times, Democrats
had begun tampering
with election boxes to
ensure their candidates
won the elections. Such
an action occurred in
Madison, and was
recorded by John P. Var-
num, U.S. commissioner.
He reported that
"there was a great deal
of trouble in Madison
County. Much bull-doz-
ing (political bullying)
was attempted, and, in
one case, an effort was
made "o break up a Re-.
publican meeting by

Madison County sheriff
had 'apparently "made
an arrangement," which
would make Republi-
cans and Democrats vote
together. When Democ-,
rat voters grew scarce,
the sheriff would force-
fully stop the voting un-
til. he was able to find
more Democratic voters.
This resulted in the
polls closing, with 200
Republicans still wait-
ing outside to vote. The
sheriff was convicted
for his obstruction, and
the ,case eventually,
made its way td the U.S.
Sipreme Court. Varnumn
reported that many, peo-
ple, feared that another
such occurrence would

.voting, the government
appointed marshals to
oversee elections in dif-
ferent parts of Florida.
In just about every in-
stance, these men were
driven from their post,
and some barely escaped
with their lives. The cry
throughout the state
was: "We will have no
United States marshals
here, and the sooner
they get out, the better it
will be." The Republi-
cans of Madison .asked

ical representative at the

In addition, he was
told that, if the marshals
didn't go, they would get
the story somewhat out-
landish, and didn't be-

Varnum took a walk
about town and noticed
that all the stores were
closed, save one. It was a

Soon; Varnum, was

was more than likely un-

mous carpetbaggers of
Madison. who might have
been a great asset to the
county under different
circumstances, The inan
drove him out:to Eagan's
house, where two more
marshals were residing:
Deputy U.S. Marshals
Sammis and Burke.
The marshals in-
formed Varnum that
they had been told to
'leave town, arid about
the former marshal sta-
tioned at Madison, who
was scared away.
I Moments later, Var-
num., and the others
heard shouting about a
mile away They were in-
formed that a mob was
forming and planning to
hang Eagan. The Eagan
household was lucky
that night, however, as a
large group of black
men was passing by and
swore they would stay
throughout the night to
guard the house.
the day of the election,
Varnum said goodbye to
the Eagan household
and made his way to the
train depot. Earlier, he
had sent word to
men there that a white
Republican' would be
aboard the train and
wished for an escort for
-safety precautions. He
waited in the dark until
the train bound for
When Varnum ar-
rived .in Greenville, he
noticed a group of men
examining the forward
cars and he knew this
was his escort party. As
he walked away, Varnum
overheard a nearby man,

lican had arrived, but he
was met by mutual
friends and taken off be-
fore ;they could get to
him, thus avoiding a vio0
When the .polls
opened, Varnum took a
spot about 50 feet away
on the side of the hill
where the polling booth
stood. His' escort re-
.mained beside him in
case:there was any trou-
ble, and he was fortu-
nate they did. Several
times, Varnum noticed
men .walk up to him,
study him, ;and then,
frown as, they, walked
away Many of them car-
ried large knives. '
As the hours passed.
several' of the local'
farmers asked others
why Varnum;was there,
and they were always
given \the reply, "Ask
him." Zack Hines, who
Varnum called the
worst-looking man of
all, came.up to him and
asked him, "Are you a
Varnum replied that
he w'as not.
That evening,, Var-
num made his way to a
store near the railroad
station, where he pur-
chased some candles for
the polling booth. As he
made his way down the
hill, several people
jeered him and "called
all manner of bad
names." Varnum paid
them no mind as he went
along his way, whistling.
SHe overheard a con-
versation between a
black man and the Rev.
Cone, in which the man
commented that people
shouldn't do that be-
cause Varnum had done
nothing to deserve it.
Cone replied, "I
haven't seen him do any-
thing .to complain of. He
has behaved himself
well enough. I don't
blame these strangers
that have been brought'
here into the county for
spies. I blame Dennis Ea-
gan; Eagan ought to be
killed, and he will be
some day. The people
won't stand for it."
When the east-
bound train arrived,
many men went to the
depot, but Varnum did-
.n't follow them. He had
heard. that, as soon as
his escort left, he was to
be "laid-out," Upon hear-
ing this, his escort group
decided to stay.
He wanted to wit-
ness the counting of the
votes when- the polls
closed, but he was de-
nied the opportunity As
he went to the window of
the booth, he was imme-,
diately surrounded by
men with knives. His es-
cort group pulled him
away .to his station on
the hill, 50 feet away;
Soon,. they began to see
shotguns, and the people
had. begun to cry, "Mur-
der! Murder! United
Around midnight, a
friend informed Varnum
that he had overheard
several men plotting to,
wait, while the escort
group fell asleep to get a
pass at him. Varnum no-
ticed that half of his es-
cort was asleep already
and immediately woke
them. All at once, a large
party of men arrived
and one of them began
them closely, and saw
George Harley watching,
him with his hand in his
pistol pocket. -Varnum
looked away for a split
second and, as he turned
towards the spot where
Harley had been stand-
ing, the man had van-
ished. Varnum's eyes,
were soon drawn toward
'Zack Hines, who had
come up ,ii the dark be-
hind him with a large
club in his hands. Var-
num partly drew his pis-
tol and faced Hines.
Hines withdrew into the
dark when the escort
group drew their
weapons as well.
Ben McKee, a black
deputy marshal, had
tried to persuade Var-
num to leave, but he re-
fused. McKee had now
become very nervous,
saying, "You must
come." McKee pulled
Varnum up the side of a
hill into the woods and
ran some distance.
McKee and Varnum
followed the edge of the
large swamp for half a
mile before Varnum fi-
nally asked if the road
crossed the swamp. Mc-
Kee replied that it did.
Varnum asked, "Can
we cross the swamp
without going to the
road?" McKee replied
that they could, and said
it was waist deep. Var-
num didn't waste time..
Both men took to the
swamp, and when they
got deep into the middle
of it, they soon found
themselves lost. "Not a
star was to be seen, and
the rain was falling --a
sort of drizzle," wrote
Varnum. They kept
walking until daybreak,
around 6:15 a.m., four
and half hours aftpr,
they had fled Greenville.
They followed the
edge of the swamp and
eventually found their,
way back to Greenville.;
Varnum had every in-
tention of 'taking the?
eastbound train back,
Jacksonville, but it did-
n't arrive until 8:30 that(
evening. Varnum and'
McKee stayed the day in,
a shanty, about half a'

had learned that a ru-

sating that they had fled

were not expected to. re

num believed there
would be no more troU'
ble' from the locals at
this point. :
They were followed
by Maston O'Neill, a
man from one of the
'gangs the night before..:.
He sat down oppo,

him. McKee stood up,

accidents occur because
the operator is distract-

you need to have a 360-de-

in front, behind and on
either side of your boat.
Next, wear a life

not. If you're in a boat-
ing accident and are
thrown into the water,
you may be injured or
unconscious: Being a
skilled swimmer won't
help you much, but
wearing a life jacket
could save your life. The
