it will. I'd like to know why it was rushed through
for a vote when 'the issue had not been put on the

June 3 meeting, during discussion regarding the
pending staffing changes with Stanley's retirement, it
was suggested that the Program Coordinator position
be expanded into a combination position that includ-
ed the creation of a Fire Coordinator. The job de-
scription for the new hybrid position was on the June
17 agenda for discussion.
To the surprise of many present, and to the ex-
treme pleasure of the volunteer firefighters in atten-
dance, before the discussion opened, Commissioner
Justin Hamrick moved to unwind the June 3 decision
to create the Fire Coordinator, recommending the
item be put on the agenda for an upcoming meeting.
He cited that the process should have been placed on
the June 3 agenda, and that although the expansion to
add a Fire Coordinator arose systematically from the
staffing discussion for Emergency Management, the
board needed to hear from the volunteers and the
public before creating the new position. The board
voted 3-2 to approve Hamrick's motion.

Air Line Railroad
By Alfa Hunt
Greene Publishing, Inc.
One of the 'major transportation
systems running through Madison
County was the Seaboard Air Line Rail-
road. The railroad runs east and west,
paralleling Highway US 90.
In 1993, James W. Parrish ex-
plained in his essay, "The Economic De-
velopment Element for Madison
County, Florida," that this railway was
the county's main mode of tralspprta-
tion for commercial and industrial ar-
eas, shipping goods and supplies in and
out of the county.
The "Air Line" part of the railway's
name actually has nothing to do with
air travel. In the days before the Wright
brothers' famous invention, "air line"
was- a metaphor used to describe the
shortest distance between two points, a
straight line drawn through the air or
on a map, ignoring all the natural ob-
Many of the 19th century railroad
systems had begun to use the term "air
line" in their titles to suggest that their
routes were shorter than others.
In 1860, the Florida Railroad com-
pany built the line of 155 miles leading
from Fernandina to Cedar Key The con-
struction of this line, as well as the rail-
way leading to Tampa, was strongly
urged for by Secretary of War Jefferson
Davis in 1855. Davis believed the rail-
way would aid in both commercial and
This line, and other railroads be-
tween Tallahassee and Jacksonville,
were sold to eastern capitalists because
of "default in the payment of interest
on the bonds issued to build and main-
tain them," according to the Lewis Pub-
lishing Company in Vol. 1 of the History
of Florida collection.
The new eastern owners of the rail-
roads intended to carry out the original
idea of construction through the Inter-
nal Improvement fund: The fund was
released in 1881 to help solve the issue
of railway systems left uncompleted
due to the Civil War outbreak. Under
the stimulus of the release, selling four
million acres of landthroughout Flori-
da to eastern and foreign capitalist
would result in the railroad mileage of
the state, which it did-.
In less than three years, more than
800 miles, making a total of 1,207 miles,
were in operation. Ten years after the
release of the Internal Improvement
lands; 2,566 miles of railroad were fully
operating throughout the state. It was
during this time that the major systems
of the state - Louisville & Nashville,
the Atlantic Coast, the Florida East
Coast, as well as the Seaboard Air Line
- were being .constructed and taking
In 1871, the Atlantic, Gulf and West
India Transit Company took over the
enterprise of extending the railway to-
wards Tampa and Charlotte Harbor.
The Tampa line was successfully com-
pleted in the late 1880s under the pro-
tection of the, Florida Railway and
In the meantime, several other lines
were being projected down into Middle
Florida beyond Ocala to Wildwood, Or-
lando and other southern markers. In
1893; the Florida Central & Peninsular
completed the extension from Yulee in
Nassau County northward to Savannah,
Ga., which would become the most di-
rect line between Savannah and Jack-
sonville, thus connecting all the
railroad systems of the state with the
seaboard line of the southern states.
On one occasion, residents of Madi-
son County had to step in to ensure the
railway met their shipment needs. In
February 1903, the citizens of
Greenville requested that the Seaboard
Air Line and South Georgia Railroads
be required to meet at the community
The State of Florida Railroad Com-
mission visited Greenville to make "a
personal investigation of the situa-
tion." The Commission made the dis-

connection between the two tracks and
it was not possible for carloads of ship-
ments to be transported from one point
along one railway to points along the.
The Commission was advised that
the South Georgia Railway Co. was
more than willing to make a track con-
nection with the Seaboard Air Line and
had track set aside for that purpose.
Even though, according the laws ;of
Florida, railroads which crossed each
other in the state were required to make
a track confection, the Seaboard Air
Line failed to do so.
The Florida Railroad Commission
immediately took up the matter with.
the Seaboard Railway and the South
Georgia Railroad. Both systems. were
advised -to make a track connection.
The Commission waited a reasonable
amount of time and neither corpora-
tion made a move to establish a connec-
tion at Greenville.
.Finally, the railroad companies
were given a formal hearing and the
Commission made an order - Order
No. 23, on June 22; 1903 - which re-
quired an immediate'connection. Both
companies would shortly comply with
Even though Seaboard Air Line
was the last of the "important railroad
systems of Florida to be organized," the
line mans the section representing the
pioneer road from Tallahassee to St.
The current system of the
Seaboard Line was organized in 1915,
when the Seaboard Air Line and the
Caroline, Atlanta, and Western were
consolidated under various articles of
agreement between the stockholders of
These agreements were filed with
the secretaries of state for Virginia,

your own dear .old dad;.
there are a few other pops
you might want to keep in,
mind, too: TV dads. They-
may not be real, but these
dads have wielded
tremendous paternal in-
fluence over generations
of Anerican families.
Here's a look at TV's
top dads: From the 1950s

21st century guys juggling
and questionable, careers.

1963). No matter what

with an encouraging word
and some life wisdom.
Ben . Cartwright,
played by Lorne Greene,
was the thrice-widowed
patriarch in the long-run-
ning Western series,. Bo-,
nanza (1959-1971). A pillar
of the community, Ben
was, also a solid family
man, raising his three dis-
similar sons on the fami-'
ly's .1000-acre ranch, the
Ponderosa. At the core of
the show was Ben's com-
mitment to helping his
sons to face life with
strength and integrity
Andy Taylor (played
by Andy Griffith) was one
of TV's first single dads
on The Andy Griffith
Show (1960-1968). The
down-home sheriff for the
town of Mayberry, North
Carolina, Andy set about
raising his son Opie with

Good Vs. Evil: A Student's Response
An e-mail has been circulating for
some time detailing the exchange be-
tween an "atheist professor" and his
Christian student. While there is no,
reason to believe that this exchange
ever happened between two living peo-
ple, the account is a beautiful re-
minder of why God would allow evil to
exist in His world and that every faith-
filled believer must be ready to fight
back when their beliefs are questioned.
"Let me explain the problem sci-
ence has with religion," an atheist
professor of philosophy begins. He
pauses before his class their first day
and then asks one of his new students
to stand. '"Are you a Christian, son?"
"Yes, sir," the student responds.
"So, you believe in God?"
"God is good?"
"Sure! God's good."
"Is God all-powerful? Can God do
'"Are you good or evil?"
"The Bible says I'm evil."
The professor grins knowingly.
"Aha! The Bible!" He considers for a
moment. "Here's one for you: Let's
say there's a sick person over here
and you can cure him. You can do it.
Would you help him? Would you try?"
"Yes, sir. I would."
"So, you're good!"
"I wouldn't say that."
"But, why not say that? You'd
help a sick and maimed person if you
could. Most of us would if we could.
But God doesn't."
The student does not answer, so
the professor continues.
I "He doesn't, does he? My brother
was a Christian who died of cancer,
even though he prayed to Jesus to
heal him. How is this Jesus good?
Hmmm? Can you answer that one?"
The student remains silent.
"No, you can't, can you?" the pro-.
fessor smiles. He takes a sip of water
from a glass on his desk to give the
studdhit "ime to relax. "Let's start
again,, young fella. Is God good?" -
"Er ... yes," the student says.
The professor asks, "Is Satan
The student doesn't hesitate on,
this one. "No."
"Then, where does Satan come
The student falters. "From God."
That's' right. God made Satan,
didn't he? Tell me, son. Is there evil
in this world?"
"Evil's everywhere, isn't it? And
God did make everything, correct?"
"So, who created evil?" The pro-
fessor continued, "If God created
everything, then God created evil,
since evil exists, and according to the
principle that our works define who
we are, then God is evil.',
Again, the student has no answer.
"Is there 'sickness? Immorality?
Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible
things, do they exist in this world?"
The student squirms, on his feet.
"So, who created them?"
The student does not answer, so
the professor repeats his question.
"Who created them?"
There is still no answer. Suddenly,.
the lecturer breaks away to pace in
front of the classroom. The class is
"Tell me," :he continues onto an-
other student. "Do you believe in Je-
sus Christ, son?"
The student's voice betrays him
and cracks. "Yes, professor, I do."
The old man stops pacing. "Sci-
encesays you have five senses you use
to identify and observe the world
around you. Have you ever seen Je-
"No, sir. I've never seen Him."
"Then tell us if you've ever heard
"No, sir. I have not."
"Have you ever felt your Jesus,
tasted your Jesus or smelt your Je-
sus? Have you ever had any sensory
perception of Jesus Christ, or God,
for that matter?"
"No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't."
"Yet, you still believe inhim?"
"Yes," he nodded.
"According to the rules of empiri-
cal, testable, demonstrable proto-
col, science says your God doesn't
exist. What do you say to that, son?"
"Nothing," the student replies. "I
only have my faith."
"Yes, faith," the professor re-
peats. "And that is the problem sci-
ence has with God. There is no
evidence, only faith."
The student stands quietly for a
moment before asking a question of
His own. "Professor, is there such
thing as heat?"
"And is there such a thing as
"Yes, son, there's cold, too."
"No sir, there isn't."
The professor turns to face the
student, obviously interested. The
room suddenly becomes -very quiet.
The student begins to explain.
"You can have lots of heat, even
more heat, super-heat, mega-heat, un-
limited heat, white heat, a little heat
or no heat, but we don't have any-
thing called 'cold'. We can hit up to
458 degrees below zero, which is no
heat, but we can't go any further after
that. There is no such thing as cold;
otherwise, we would be able to go
colder than the lowest -458 degrees.
"Every body or object is suscepti-
ble to study when it has or transmits
energy, and heat is what makes a body
or matter have or transmit energy.
Absolute zero (-458 degrees Fahren-
heit) is the total absence of heat. You
see, sir, cold is only a word we use to
describe the absence of heat. We can-
not measure cold. Heat, we can mea-
sure in thermal units because heat is
energy. Cold is, not the opposite of
heat, sir, just the absence of it."
The professor, obviously contem-
-plating the student's claims, is silent.
"What about darkness, professor?
Is there such a thing as darkness?"
"Yes," the professor replies with-
out hesitation. "What is night if it is-
"'You're wrong again, sir. Dark-
.ness is not, something; it is the ab-
sence of something. You can have low
light, normal light, bright light, flash-
ing light, but if you have no light con-
stantly,. you have nothing, and it's
called darkness, isn't it? That's the
meaning we use to define the word.
"In reality, darkness isn't., If it.
were, you would be able to make dark-
ness darker, wouldn't you?"
The professor begins to smile at.
the student in front of him. He feels
that this will be a good semester. "So,
what point are you making, young
"Yes, professor. My point is: Your
philosophical premise is' flawed to
start with, and so your conclusion
must also be flawed."
The professor's face cannot hide
his surprise. "Flawed? Can you ex-
plain how?" -
"You are working on the premise
of duality," the student explains.
"You argue that there is life and then
there's death; a good God and a bad
God. You are viewing the concept of
God as something finite, something
we can measure. Sir, science can't
even explain a thought.
"It uses electricity and magnet-
ism, but. has never seen, much less
fully understood either one. To view
death as the opposite of life is to be ig-
norant of the fact that death cannot
exist as a substantive thing. Death is
not the opposite of life, just the ab-
sence of it.
"Now tell me, professor: Do you
teach your students that they evolved
from a monkey?"
"If you are referring to the natur-
al evolutionary process, young man,
yes, of course I do."
"Have you ever observed evolu-
tion with your own eyes, sir?"
The professor begins to shake his
head, still smiling, as he realizes
where the argument is going.
"Since no one has ever observed
the process of evolution at work and
cannot even prove that this process is
an on-going endeavor, are you not
teaching your opinion, sir? Are you
now not a scientist, but a preacher?"
Many students respond to this,
filling the lecture hall with sound.
The student remains silent until the
commotion has subsided.
"To continue the point you were'
making earlier to the other student,
let me give you an example of what I
mean.," The student looks around the
room. "Is there anyone in the class
who has ever seen the professor's
The class breaks out into laugh-
"Is there anyone here who has
ever heard the professor's biain, felt
the professor's brain, touched or
smelt the professor's brain? No one
appears to have done so. So, accord-
ing to the established rules of empir-
ical, stable, demonstrable protocol,
science says that you have no brain,
with all due respect, sir. So, if science
says you have no brain, how can we
trust your lectures, sir?"
Now the room is silent. The pro-
fessor just stares at the student, his
face unreadable. Finally, after what
seems an eternity, the old man an-
swers. "I guess you'll have to take.
them on faith."
"Now, you accept that there is
faith, and, in fact, faith exists with
life," the student continues. "Now, sir,
is there such a thing as evil?"
At first uncertain, the professor
responds with growing confidence,
"Of course, there is. We see it every-
day. It is in the daily example of
man's inhumanity to man. It is in the
multitude of .crime and violence
everywhere in the world. These man-
ifestations are nothing else but evil."
To this the student replies, "Evil
does not exist, sir. Or at least, it does
not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the
absence of God. It is just like dark-
ness and cold: a word that man has
created to describe an absence ... the
absence of God. God did not create
evil. Evil is the result of what hap-
pens when man does not have God's
love present in his heart. It's like the
cold that comes when there is no heat
or the darkness that comes when
there is no light."

Although most people now know one doesn't get warts from touching toads,
many other health misconceptions persist regarding outdoor activities.
For example, many people believe that people need to wait 30 minutes or
longer before swimming after a meal, when, in fact, there is really no medical
research to support the notion. Another popular myth is that potato salad is the
first thing to go bad at a picnic. According to modern research, this may have
been true years ago when it was prepared with homemade mayonnaise (which
contains uncooked eggs). Today, this is much less of a concern if the salad is
made with commercially prepared mayonnaise.
Here are some other hot weather myths that will help you survive the sum-
Poison ivy rash is contagious
Fans are a good way to prevent heat stroke
You can catch a cold immediately after leaving an air-conditioned room
Urinate on a jelly fish sting to soothe the pain
You should suck out the venom'from a snake bite
-Sparklers are a safe alternative to fireworks
Dark skinned people do not need sunscreen
Citronella candles are an effective mosquito repellent

Of course, who's to
say who's the expert is on
these topics. So, since
there is little harm in
continuing to serve the
myth, particularly if it
keeps grandmother from
getting upset, don't fret
it. If, on the other hand, it
is a nuisance, then escape
the myth and have a safe
and wonderful summer.

Of Home Fires
NFPA urges awareness
to reduce risk
The National Fire Protection Association
(NFPA) reminds the public to be aware of the
risks associated with the use of electricity by pro-
viding safety tips to assist individuals in taking
steps to reduce the- risk of experiencing a home,
In recent years, an average of 53,000 home
electrical fires have been reported per year. These
fires resulted in an average of 500 deaths, 1,400 in-
juries, and $1.5 billion in direct property damage
per year. -
One of every seven home fires was an electri-
cal fire. Any type of equipment that uses electric-
ity may be involved in an electrical fire. Some type
of electrical distribution equipment such as
wiring, light switches, outlets, cords, and plugs or
lighting equipment was involved in roughly half
of the home electrical fires. There are also many
home electrical fires involving air conditioners,
fans, clothes dryers and appliances.
"Whether you are actively flipping a switch,
inserting a plug, or simply enjoying all the elec-
tric-powered appliances in your home, the risk of
fire may not be on your mind," said Lorraine Car-
11, NFPA's vice president of communications.
"Most electrical fires can be easily avoided. The
first step in preventing them is.to be aware of the
danger, the second is to learnt the rules of fire safe-
ty and then put them into practice."
NFPA offers the following safety tips. To learn
more about electrical safety, visit www.rifpa.org/
* Replace or repair loose or damaged cords on
all electrical devices. ,
* Avoid running extension cords across door-
ways or under carpets.
* In homes with small children, unused wall
sockets and extension-cord receptacles
should have plastic safety covers.
* Consider having additional circuits or out-
lets added by a qualified electrician so you
do not have to use extension cords.
* Follow the manufacturers' instructions for
plugging an applianceinto a receptacle out-
* Avoid overloading outlets. Plug only one
high-wattage appliance into each receptacle
outlet at a time.
* If outlets or switches feel warm, shut off
the circuit and have them checked by an
* When possible, avoid the use of "cube taps"
and other devices that allow the connection
of multiple appliances into a single recepta-
* Place lamps on level surfaces, away from
things that can burn and use bulbs that
match the lamp's recommended wattage.
Electrical fires tend to happen more frequent-
ly in older homes. The Fire Protection Research
Foundation conducted the Residential Electrical
System Aging Research Project (2008) to study
how aging and installation quality of components.
in home electrical systems impact fire safety The
project involved harvesting from 30 homes from
across the U.S. ranging in age'
from 30 to 110 years. More
information bn hidden electrical
hazards and a link to the Founda-
t ion's report are available at www.
In addition to serving as a

Flushing Dollars Down The Toilet
High Efficiency Toilets are slowly becoming industry standard
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
High-efficiency toilets (HET)
have been defined by the plumbing
industry and the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) as those
that use an average of 20 percent
less water per flush than the in-
dustry standard of 1.6 gallons.
For a family of four that can
mean a savings of almost 9,000 gal-
lons of water each year. That's not
only green, but it also nhakes
sense, especially in an'age where
public water prices are on the rise
and aquifers are being depleted;.
Four styles of HETs are on the
The gravity-fed single flush
toilet operates like your tradition-
al toilet but can use as little as 1.1
gallons per flush. For those who
want options when flushing, the
dual-flush toilet allows one to
choose between one mega flush
that uses up to 1.6 gallons of water,
or the more modest light flush that
rinses with 0.8 gallons. These toi-
lets average out to be about 1.2 gal-
Ions over the course of a year.
Next on the list of .suggestions
is the pressure-assist toilet that
uses water line pressure or a small
air compressor to force the 1.1 gal-
lons of water through the bowl at a
much higher rate of speed. These
toilets can flush greater loads
faster at a significantly
lesser volume of sound.
,- ' The final HET is the

S'sist toilets require a 120V
power source to operate

tween one and 1.3 gallons

models are also available.

' On Thursday, June 4, the Department of Busi-
ness and Professional Regulation concluded its
statewide-unlicensed activity operation with a focus
in the construction industry Sweep and sting opera-
tions were held throughout Florida to protect con-
sumers from the personal and financial harm that
can result from hiring unlicensed individuals.
DBPR partnered with local law enforcement agen-
cies, building departments, State Attorney's Offices,
and workers' compensation representatives to visit
210 work sites and check a total of 478 working indi-
viduals for state-required licensure. DBPR and pairt-
ners issued 38 notices of non-compliance, 64
citations, and 15 cease and desists.
The Department of
The Department of Business and Professional
Regulation reminds registered construction li-
censees that it is time to renew their licenses. The
renewal period is opened May 31 and will run until
Aug. 31 and iiicludes registered contractors in the
following professions: air conditioning, building,
plumbing, general construction, tank lining applica-
tor, roofing, mechanical, pool/spa, precision tank
testing, residential construction, sheet metal, spe-
cialty contracting and underground utility and ex-
cavation contracting. Individuals can renew their
licenses by visiting by MyFloridaLicense.com and
clicking the "Renew/Maintain Your License" link.
Prior to applying for renewal, 14 hours of board-
approved continuing education is required for both
certified and registered contractors which must in-
clude one hour in each of the following: workplace
safety, workers' compensation, laws and rules and
business practices. Licensees not in compliance with
all continuing education,
requirements by the expi- -- iOi
ration date of the license
could face non-renewal or
disciplinary action. '

A, sweep involves checking licenses to ensure
compliance with state laws; a sting involves under-
cover operations where known or suspected unli-
censed individuals are targeted. Twenty-seven
sweeps and two stings were conducted.
"I commend the efforts of our investigators and
partners for this consumer protection effort. This
operation sends a strong message to unlicensed in-
dividuals that they must abide by state law, and it ed-
ucates consumers about the importance of checking
credentials," said Secretary Charles W. Drago.
Hiring an unlicensed individual can threaten
the financial and personal safety of consumers, as
well as the livelihood of state-licensed professionals.
Unlicensed individuals may not carry workers' com-
pensation, or liability insurance, and 'consumers
may end up paying for injuries on the job. Addi-
tionally, unlicensed individuals often underbid li-
censed professionals, which results in law-abiding
professionals losing work to those who do not meet
state licensure requirements.
Here are some tips to help consumers protect
themselves against unlicensed activity:
* Always ask to see the State of Florida license.
* Note the license-number and verify that the li-
cense is current and in good standing. To
check a license, call (850) 487-1395 or visit
* Ask for references and check each one.
* Do not pay cash and be cautious of writing
checks made payable to individuals, especial-
ly when dealing with a company.
* Get everything in writing, including a de-
tailed description of the work to be completed,
a completion date and the total cost.
* Report suspected unlicensed activity at
MyFloridaLicense.com or toll-free at 1-866-532-
The-department's mission is to license efficient-
ly and regulate fairly The department licenses
more than one million businesses and professionals
ranging from real estate agents, veterinarians, and
accountants to contractors and cosmetologists. For
