Community Urged To

Support Back-To-School Fair
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Schools throughout Florida are facing a variety of budget challenges, and
although stimulus dollars are offsetting some of the gap, there are areas that
have suffered. Unfortunately, one of these areas is the annual back-to-school-
fair that features free school supplies for families whose budgets are also suf-
fering from the tough economic times.
Stepping into the gap, representatives from the Madison County Health De-
partment and Healthy Start Coalition of Jefferson, Madison and Taylor
Counties are putting together a group of volunteers to help maintain
this community service that is vital to so many stu-
dents around the cotuinty.
Targeting a mid-August date, the
1air will feature useful information
booths for the parents and attractions
for kids from health and other com-
munity services. Organizers are gra-
ciously requesting help from local
businesses, churches and individuals
to help purchase supplies and partici-
pate in this worthwhile event.
More information will be provid-
ed as the process moves forward. In
the meantime, please call Doug Freer
at (850) 973-5000, ext 119 to arrange for
a brief exchange to describe how you
might help. "Thanks in advance for
supporting the kids!"

Reception Si
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
There are few people who make it
a personal priority
to leave things bet-
ter than they found
them. There are
even fewer who do
it . without con-
plaint and roll with
the punches. Jim
Stanley, however, is
one who does, and
has been doing it as
Emergency Man-
agement Director
for almost two
decades.
Even his oppo-
nents would agree.,
Add to the mix that
wife Sandra has
supported Jim
throughout the Jim
long building
process, which recently concluded in
the million-dollar Emergency Opera-
tions Center, and you've got the mak-
ings for a Hallmark movie of the week.
Over the span of his professional
and political career, Jim has personal-
ly served too many to count, and with-
out compromise. Again, always
leaving things better than he found
them. Serving his family, his friends,


r Retirement

it For June 30
his city, county and church, Stanley
has a rare legacy, not the least of
which was his dedication to establish-
ing Emergency
Management in
Madison County.
On June 30,
from 3 to 5 p.m. at
the Madison Coun-
ty Courthouse, a re-
tirement reception
is being held in his
honor, as he com-
pletes his last day
as Emergency Man-
agement Director.
The community is
invited to join Jim
and his family on
,this special occa-
sion, and organiz-
ers urge all to drop
by for a few min-
Stanley utes to congratu-
late him for his
outstanding contribution.
Jim Stanley currently serves as
the Mayor of Madison, and remains
very active in local fraternal and
church leadership. His Program Coor-
dinator, Vicki Brown, is succeeding
him as Emergency Management Di-
rector.

Slamming The Poor

In The Face Of God
"When you say a situation or a person is hopeless,
you are slamming the door in the face of God."
-Charles L. Allen
SThere have been'many times when I've wanted
to say a situation is hopeless. Many times, ;and I hate
to admit this, I've thought that other people are
hopeless. Time and time again, I'm so amazed at
how God works out things for good.
A look at history shows us seemingly hopeless
people and hopeless situations. We 'don't remember
their hopelessness, however. We remember who they
became.
A little boy injured his leg. The leg grows pro-
gressively worse. The doctor wants to amputate his
leg, but the boy refuses. The doctor tells the boy's
parents that their son could die if the boy's leg is not
amputated. The boy begs one of his older brothers to
not let the doctor amputate his leg. The brother
guards the boy. The parents and his siblings begin a
prayer vigil. The next day, the infection begins going
away Soon, the boy is back on his feet and walking.
A few years later, he graduates from West Point.
Then he becomes a general in the U.S. Army, and the
Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in World
War II. A few years after the war, he becomes Presi-
.dent. His name was Dwight David Eisenhower.
One man loses most of his hearing at 12 years
old. He blames it on being lifted by his ears onto a
train. Earlier, teachers had called him "addle-
brained" and given up hope on him. Where they saw
junk, however, his mother saw treasure. She taught
him at home and he became one of the greatest in-
ventors of all time. The next time, when you look at
a light bulb or watch a movie, think of a little boy
who teachers thought was stupid and then think of
the name Thomas Edison.
Another boy that people thought was stupid was
one of the greatest scientists of all time. "He's h6pe
less," people said, throwing up their hands in de
spair. Think of the stupid little boy and then think of
the man - the man named Albert Einstein.
We need to never say a situation or a person is
hopeless., When we do, we slam the door in the face
of God. Would .you want to be xude)'to a man who

Red,, White True Mysteries:


Secret Agent' s Art Imnitated His.

Liestyle AsASpy


The secret agent
was a director of
British Naval Intelli-
gence during World War
II. His name was Ian,.
which, if you're from,
Great Britain, you know
Sis a fairly common
name for a man.
After retiring from
the Navy, lIan became a
very successful writer.
His books have sold
more than 30 million
copies. Despite his suc-
cess, the literary indus-
try looked down on his
books.
Ian's grandfather
founded the Scottish
American Investment
Trust in his native Scot-
land in 1873, when he
was just 28 years old. He
also helped finance
America's reconstruc-,
tion after the Civil War.
His' business went on to
become a huge success,
and it is still doing well
today as an investment
and merchant bank.
Ian's father, whose
first name was Valen-
tine, was a member of
British parliament and
a friend of Winston
Churchill's. He served":
in World War I, but was
killed in combat.
Churchill wrote an obit-
uary for Ian's father,
which Ian kept with him
for the rest of his life.
Ian was born in
London in 1908 and he
had three brothers. Like
his father, he served in
the military After the
war, Ian moved to the
north coast of Jamaica
and built his home
there. This is where he
began writing the sto-
ries about his famous al-
ter ego.
Not to change the
subject, but have you
ever wondered why cer-
tain movies feature new
inventions and gadgets
that seemed like they
were created just for the
movie? The 1968 chil-
dren's film, Chitty Chitty
Bang Bang, and the


James Bond movies are
two perfect examples.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
featured a popular in-
ventpr played by Dick
Van Dyke, while the
Bond movies featured
'the coolest;: high-tech
gadgets that were,years
ahead of their time.
Coincidence?
Not' really, ,because
both of these shows
were created, by the
same person. His hame?


Fleming. Ian Flem-
ing.
I mentioned earlier
that Ian was a spy for
the British Naval Intelli-
gence during World War
II. As is the -case with
James. Bond, it's easy-
for life to imitate art
when the person creat-
ing the art is writing
about his own life.
While his greatest
S"invention" was James,
Bond, Ian never invent-


There's a gardener


ed any gadgets in real
life. He commanded
Desmond Llewelyn's
character, Q, to equip
Bond. with all the
coolest gadgets that any
self-respecting spy
could ever want, such-as
the ejector seat in his
Aston Martin car, the
specially-equipped
briefcase, the skipole
gun, the acid pen and
the Omega watch with a
laser.

Prevent Foodborne
Illness This Summer
Summertime and living goes outdoors -- it's the
time of year to be casual with the way we eat and
serve food, often outside and in unusual places.
Think about it, there is always a picnic in the park or
at the beach, barbeques in the backyard and camping
trips. Bacteria grows very easily in warmer weather
and with warmer temperature and unusual serving
spots, your risk for food borne illness increases dras-
tically during the summer months.
Hot days call for cool meals; we serve salads,
fresh fruit and vegetables, cold chicken, meat sand-
wiches. Since bacteria love warm weather too, pre-
pare and pack these meals with care. The USDA
Food Safety and Inspection Service suggest the fol-
lowing practices to keep your food safe this summer.
Wash your hands before beginning any food
preparation. If you are going to be outdoors and
don't have a water source for hand washing; take
along a hand sanitizer.
Wash cutting boards, dishes, utensils and
countertops with hot water and soap after preparing
each food item.
Rinse fresh fruits and vegetables, including-
those with skins and rinds that will not be eaten, un-
der cool running tap water.
Once food is prepared, don't let it sit out in
warm temperatures for very long. Either store it in
the refrigerator or pack it in an insulated cooler. Add
enough ice or ice packs to the cooler to keep the food
at 40�F. (The temperature inside your refrigerator)
Take-out foods such as deli potato salad,
coleslaw or baked beans should be eaten within two
hours of picking them up. Otherwise, purchase
them in advance and chill thoroughly, then transport
in a cooler and reheat those that should be hot just
before eating.
When it's time to eat, don't let food sit out in
the hot sun for very long. Choose a shady place to eat
or keep the cooler close.at hand.
Safe Grilling Practices
Marinate meat, fish and poultry in the refrig-
erator. Discard the marinade and make a fresh batch
for basting or to use on cooked foods.
Preheat the grilifor 201to 30 minutes or until
the coals are lightly coated with ash.
Use a food thermometer to ensure that food
reaches a safe internal-temperature. Poultry must
reach a temperature of 1700 F Ground beef should be
Cooked to 160 E.' Roasts, steaks and other large cuts
6f beef should be cooked to at least 145�F (medium
rare). Fish should be opaque and flake easily
Put grilled food on a clean platter. Don't re-
turn it to the same plate that held the raw food.
Burn off any cooked-food residue, and then
clean the grill before its next use.
At Home or On-the-Go
Picnic tables are busy breeding grounds for
germs. At home, clean the surface with soap and hot
water. Pack disinfectant wipes to quick-clean public
picnic tables.
Leftovers should be refrigerated within two
hours after cooking or serving. Anything left out
longer should be discarded.
Wash hands before and after eating. Again, in
case there's no running water, pack a hand gel sani-
tizer or hand-cleaning wipes.

Stream Of

Consciousness
Playing ball with my 14-year-old uncle at age two in
Georgia as my grandmother shelled peas on the front
porch of a big white house-also being a spoiled brat!
Walking with my mother and prospective stepfa-
ther along the sidewalks of Lakeland (Florida) where
he told her that he owned a big white house! When I was
three.
Going from Eagle Lake to Winter Haven to visit my
stepfather's sister, Mary Fox, who always gave me but-
tered bread Aunt Mary She was a wonderful, loving per-
son. I was four. That year was also when my half sister,
Helen was born.
At age five, trailing in my stepfather's every step
until he grew tired of it and dumped me in the lake
which I always said he did on purpose and he always de-
nied. To get water he had to cross a corner of Eagle
Lake' on a planked walk and, of course, I followed like
an old hen's chick. He told me to go back but I wouldn't,
so he stomped on the boards, I lost my balance and fell
in. Of course, he pulled me out; I ran home and told
Mother he dumped me in the lake, which, of course,
caused quite a lot of trouble.
At age six, Daddy-he was Daddy by then decided he
wanted to go back tf farm life in Madison County where
he was born and raised. At that time we were living onr
Lake Apopka, Daddy with a helper was in complete
charge of an entire orange grove and life was extreme-
ly good. About the only bill we had was for groceries.
But Mother and my stepfather made a very good couple
and always worked together as a team-so if that was
what he wanted, she was agreeable.
So we left the big lake where we swam every day for
the hard life of a farm where almost everything that
went on the table had to result from really arduous la-
bor, but we liked the farm. Mother worked in the field
with Daddy and he worked in the house and yard with
her. He also bought and broke wild broncos brought
into Madison from Texas. Two things about that stand
out in my mind.
Helen was two and always mischievous. She took a
dried dog fennel, reached through the planked enclo-
sure and tickled one of the broncos on the hind leg. Of
course, he instinctively kicked and the plank hit her� in
the stomach. Though she was hurt rather batjly with
the marks staying'on her stomach for; quite somle ,time,
she recovered well.
The other thing was-as soon as Daddy could ride a
wild bronc, so could Mother and one afternoon they
both rode off together, intending for the ride to be a
short one but parents sometimes make mistakes, even'
the best of them. I was six, Helen two and as the sun be-
gan to set, I was scared and took Helen to an old turned
over wagon which we crouched behind. Of course, we
weren't hidden and Bee Williams, who was about 18 at
that time, came riding by, sawus and stopped. He stayed
with us until dark when Mother and Daddy-now very
contrite and worried-finally showed up.
One other thing that I remember of my parents'
teamwork was when US Highway 90 was being paved.
Daddy got a job there and the crop wasn't yet 'laid by'. So
while he walked the five niles to work and back, Moth-
er-with two small children-did the plowing that was still
necessary Talk about a helpmate! They don't come any
better but in those days there were others just as good. I
remember Edna Welch leading her husband and chil-
dren to the fields. No one could turn out work any faster.
'Well, I've made this through my sixth year-if I go
farther, this column will be too long, so au revoir for
now.

additional fines and court fees.
All told, seat-belt tickets could range from $93 to
$119 by county, according to a House staff analysis.
The law would apply to the driver and front-seat pas-
senger, but not to back-seat passengers.
Last year, officers in Florida issued 254,000 seat-
belt citations. With the new law, that number is ex-
pected to rise and generate additional revenue, but.
the amount is unknown.

ed to learn that the board had

d been discussing code en-
Lths, and at the June session,
they looked at a sample
ordinance to set up an
enforcement board. City
Attorney Clay Schnitker
said, "This relies heavily
on state statutes. You
will appoint a board
with the task of inspec-
tion and code enforce-
ment."
The commissioners
had earlier suggested
that they might serve as
that board, but Schnitk-
er said the board must
be autonomous to the
city commissioners. The
sample ordinance would
give the code enforce-
ment board full authori-
ty to decide if a violation
has occurred and to hold
hearings and set fines
and penalties.
After' some other
discussion, Commis-
sioner Jim Catron and
Judy Townsend moved


to put the ordinance on the agenda for a first public
reading in July or August. The motion passed unan-
imously
Some residents expressed reservations
about handicapped or elderly neighbors who might
not be able to do yard and repair work. Ina Thomp-
son, said, "Let us help. Some churches already have
youth groups out mowing lawns for people."
The board also voted to initiate the process
of tearing down dilapidated buildings in the .city
City Manager Harold Emrich explained, "We would
have non-recurring revenue from the sale of the
property" He added that the health department has
made a list of properties that present a danger to.
their communities.
In other business, Troy Hendry asked about
an unnumbered lot in the Livingston.section of Oak
Ridge Cemetery. He wants the city to identify it and
let him use it. "I want to install coping, monuments
and other improvements," he said.
Schnitker said there was no reason prevent-
ing the city from doing the identification. "It would
require re-numbering the lots n that plot," he said.
Both Hendry and the city would have to
abide by the Livingston family's wish that the lots
could never be sold.
Emrich presented a request from North
Florida Community. College to allow the school to
use the city's name while applying for a grant to
purchase a fire truck for training purposes. He ex-
plained that the college could not apply for the grant
since it does not have a fire department.
Asked if the college program would help lo-
cal fire departments, Fire Chief Alfred Martin said
it would. "Having the training right there would
benefit us greatly," he said.
The commissioners agreed to examine the
request and make a decision at the next meeting.

Gamalero was a shining star in the Pros vs. Joes
game played in Tallahassee on Sunday evening,
June 21.
Willy caught a long touchdown pass against the
Pros that night. It would have been an amazing feat,
anyway, but Gamalero made it look easy as he
caught a pass, while being defended by Terrell Buck-
ley, former All-Pro cornerback for Green Bay and
former All-American cornerback at Florida State
University
Gamalero is that good.
After catching the pass, Gamalero was inter-
viewed by WTXL sports anchor Preston Scott, who
asked him what he did in Madison. Willy replied,
"I'm a financial advisor at Madison County Commu-
nity Bank."
The crowd roared their approval at Gamalero's
answer.
The Joes lost the game 40-34 to the Pros, led at
quarterback by Casey Weldon.
Everyone in Madison is proud of Willy's accom-
plishment, including his wife, the former Melissa
Driggers, and his sons, Gabe and Ben Tyler. Melissa

Way.


From the desk of State Representative Leonard Bembry
Dear Friends:

SThank you for allowing me to represent you in the Florida House ofRepresentatives.

I am humbled by the responsibility you have given me to serve as your representative in our state capital.
What happens in the Florida Legislature has serious implications to our daily lives and those of our children
and grandchildren. I take this responsibility very seriously as your State Representative.

The 2009 Legislative Session was - in a word - challenging. The fragile nature of our economy and the short-
falls in our state revenue have made providing for the needs of our communities difficult. And, frankly, the
Legislature missed some opportunities to reprioritize our spending and run a more responsible, accessible
and accountable state government.

While the session provided its share of challenges, it also provided some opportunities. For instance, I was
proud to sponsor successful legislation that:

SProtects our agricultural community from the threat of plant pests and disease.
* Provides our small and fiscally constrained counties with significant tax relief .
* Revises confidentiality laws for clinical psychologists to better protect the public interest.

Additionally, I am pleased that the Legislature restored $21 million in library funding that is critical to our small
counties, as well with the further development of a $20 million ethanol research project and facility in our
district
that is expected to create 250 jobs.

I introduced a number of key amendments that improved other bills during the legislative process.
I also weighed in on many important issues through questions and debate on the floor of the House of
Representatives.

It is very important to me that my fellow legislators have the opportunity to know and understand our issues
and values in District 10 so they can better understand our rural attitudes. I made it clear that I supported few,
if any, new fees or taxes for my constituency.
I want to hear your concerns and share information and ideas. Please call or stop by our legislative offices in
Madison, Chiefland or Tallahassee



Representative Bembry's Initiatives:

VProtect the interests of small and rural counties, provide them tax relief and protect them from unfunded state mandates
/Publish state spending and budget information on the internet for all to see
SCreate jobs by maintaining $20 million in funding for ethanol research here in our district,
Stop a premature rule making process that would force residents to buy new and more expensive septic tanks
VStreamline the permitting process so we can compete with Georgia to provide jobs
/Legislature restored $21 million in funding for our libraries throughout our district
VTo maintain proper funding for our local law enforcement, fire rescue and Department of Corrections employees
/Protect state workers from pay cuts in the budget process
V'Allow our school systems the flexibility they need to make it through these tough economic times
VProtect our farming and agricultural interests from unnecessary permitting and development intrusion
VProvided our small counties with significant tax relief in the implementation of Amendment #4
VContinue to protect our small county government structure

But one thing's for sure
about the MVP,
He is the greatest daddy

What Is A
Scallop? I Have
Never Heard Of
Them In Florida.
Bay scallops are bivalve
molluscs. that occur on
Florida's west coast, in lo-
calized populations from
Pine Island Sound in Lee
County to St. Andrew Sound
near Panama City. They are
.bottom dwellers living in
4-8 feet of water. They used
to be harvested and sold
commercially; now, only
recreational anglers take
them.


Where And
How Are Scal- [
lops Fished?
Bay scallops (Ar- Outside theSI
gopecten irradians) can be
fished in state waters from
the Pasco-Hernando county
line to the Mexico Beach Canal in Bay County from July 1 to
September 10 each year. The bag limit is two gallons of un-
shucked animals per person per day or one pint of meat per
person,per day. A saltwater fishing license is required if you
harvest bay scallops from a boat or use snorkel gear but not if
you wade in and collect without snorkel gear.

Before You Harvest


The recreational harvest season for bay scallops be-
gins July 1 and continues through Sept. 10. Open scal-
loping areas on Florida's Gulf Coast extend from the
west bank of the Mexico Beach Canal in Bay County to
the Pasco-Hernando county line near Aripeka.
Bay'scallops may be taken only within the allow-
able harvest areas. It is illegal to possess bay scallops
while you're in or on state waters outside the open har-
vest areas, or to land bay scallops outside the open ar-
eas.
There is a daily limit of 2 gallons of whole bay scal-
lops in the shell or 1 pint of bay scallop meat per person
during the open season. In addition, no more than 10
gallons of whole bay scallops in the shell or one-half
gallon of bay scallop meat may be possessed aboard any
vessel at any time.
You're allowed to harvest bay scallops only by
hand or with a landing or dip net, and bay scal-
lops may -not be harvested for commercial pur-
'poses.

Nineteenth century coal miners took canaries into mines, relying on the birds' sensitive respira-
tory systems to warn of low oxygen levels and the presence of dangerous gases long before the air prob-
lems could harm humans. Like the miners' canaries, bay scallops (Argopecten irradians) are bioindicators.
providing an early warning system for scientists who monitor the quality of Florida's coastal waters.
Scallops are highly sensitive to changes in water quality; therefore, observing their health is a good way to
measure the health of an ecosystem. A secretive animal that spends most of its short life hiding in underwater
grasses, the bay scallop is a prized dinner entree for many Floridians and an important part of the marine ecosystem.
Historically the bay scallop was a valuable seafood commodity However, declining populations in many of Florida's
tal areas prompted the elimination of commercial harvest in 1994, and restriction of recreational harvest to a 10-week
tneach summer.
Tbay scallop is a member of the shellfish class Bivalvia. Bivalves have two valves, or shells. The bay scallop's upper valve
Mottled color, occasionally bright yellow or orange, and its lower valve is typically white. Bay scallops may reach a shell
hiA (3.5") and live two years. In Florida they rarely exceed 75 mm (3") or one year old.
*altep feeds continuously by filtering small particles of algae and organic matter from the water. The water enters along
iaerior margin (the open side of the two shells) and is funneled over the gills. Nutritious particles are skimmed out of the
vbter, rejected particles, and digestive wastes exit posteriorly (near the hinge). The amount of food available and the sur-
,ratmre influence growth rate.
'a[ves when feeding or breathing and close them when predators approach. The shell can also be shut to avoid silt, which

urfof the shell detect movement near the animal and serve as a warning system. When threatened, the scallop can swim

bieability to develop both male and female sexual organs; consequently the scallop produces both eggs and sperm. Scal-
dfferent times to reduce the chance of inbreeding. In the final stages of development, scallops move energetic reserves
a the gonad. This type of energy partitioning leaves the scallop vulnerable to predation and disease after spawning, and
A change in water temperature can trigger spawning. In Florida, most
spawning occurs in the fall when the temperature drops or in the spring when
Water warms. Each scallop is capable of producing millions of eggs at once, but
the mortality rate is extremely high. Only one egg out of 12 million may surv ive
to adulthood.
S'" It takes about 36 hours for fertilized eggs to become tiny larvaethat float in
S" .- the water for about 14 days before attaching to the base of seagrass blades. At
- - ' this time. larvae transform into juvenile scallops, commonly called spat. The
spat gradually move up the seagrass blades, out of the reach of bottom-dwelling
predators such as crabs. Even then, survival is uncertain. As many as 90 per-
S--L cent of the spat will die within six weeks of latching on to seagrass. Those that
- " do grow large enough to avoid consumption by predators Will eventually drop
2ioff and fall to the bottom, where they remain the rest of their lives.
SOne creature, the pea crab, lives in harmony with the bay scallop. This crab
- finds protection with in the scallop's shells. While the pea crab does steal some
or the scallop's food, it doesn't take enough to jeopardize the health of its host.
Although bay scallops were once plentiful throughout Florida's west coast,
i_ they have vi'tially disappeared in some areas. An extensive scallop fishery ex-
isted in Tampa Bay and Charlotte Harbor as recently as the 1960s, but scallops'
were rarely found there throughout the 1990's. Scientists believe poor water
quality is responsible for these declines. The most stable bay scallop popula-
tions are located north and west of the Suwannee River, particularly near the
fishing hamlet of Steinhatchee and in St. Joseph Bay Restoration efforts in
Charlotte Harbor have had short term success. Restoration efforts in Tampa
Bay seem to be having longer lasting benefits. Anecdotal reports from citizens
and organized surveys both suggest scallop abundance is increasing.

There's a statue of a
Grecian maiden in Italy She
has a beautiful face and a
graceful figure.
The townspeople tell
the story of an untidy girl
who came face to face with
it. She gazed upon it, and
hurried home to bathe, to
comb her hair and to mend*
her dress.
Day by day, she would
stand and stare, and she
changed. Her face became
noble and her form became
graceful.
So, it will be if we gaze
upon our Lord. We'll be
mending our ways and be-
coming more gracious and
Godlike.
That's why the Bible
says, "Let us 'keep our eyes
on Jesus."'

One day, a man joined a
famous church. That night,
the pastor preached a stir-
ring missionary sermon
and the congregation sang


fervently, "Rescue the Per-
ishing."
As the people were leav-
ing, he asked a dacon,
"When do we start?"
"Start what?"
* "Start rescuing the per-
ishing," he said.
"Oh," said the deacon,
"that's just a'song."
Too many of us sing
without serving, read with-
out responding, and, wor-
ship without working.
Our Lord said, "This
people honoreth Me with
their lips, but their heart is
far from Me. But in vain do


SEEDS

they worship Me."

Years ago,- a man
worked as a saddler's ap-
prentice.
One day, he saw a run-
away horse pulling a vwagonf
on which sat a frightened
woman.
A stranger caught the
horse by the bridle, and
stopped it.
"What if that bridle
had been poorly sewed?"
asked the saddler. "And
what if poor thread had
been used? The bridle would


have broken, and the moth-
er would have been killed. I
must turn out better work."
The name Christ
stands for quality If you're
a Christian, you must turn
out quality work.
The Bible says, "What-
soever you do, do it heartily,
as to the Lord."

A boy was leaving Ire-
land for the United States.
His father said, "Pat, my
boy, remember three bones
and you'll come out all
right."
"Which three?" ,he
asked.
"The wishbone keeps
you going after things," he
answered. "The jawbone
keeps you asking questions.
And the backbone keeps you
at it until you get there."
So often, we wish for
things, and 'we use the jaw-
bone and pray for things,
but we don't use the back-.
bone and keep at it until the
answer comes.
Whatever may be the
delays and disappoint-
ments, don't stop praying.
The Living Bible says,
"Keep praying until the an-
swer comes."

A little girl came to
church crying. "What's
wrong?" asked the pastor.
"The Lord's gone!"
sobbed the girl. "I dialed
'The Lord' on the telephone
and the operator said,
'There's nobody at that
number.'"
Cheer up, little girl.
The Lord isn't gone. You're
simply on the wrong line.
He promises, "Call
upon Me, and I will answer
thee." -
You can call upon the
Lord when you have a sud-
den need and receive a swift
answer.! . .
- You'll always find the
Lord wiaitng to answer your
call. And you'll never get a
busy signal.
The Living Bible says,
"The earnest prayer of a
righteous man has great
power and wonderful re-
sults!"

"I love you so," bragged
a young man to his girl-
friend, "that I'd scale the
highest mountain or swim
the deepest river to sit at
your feet."
But, when' he left, he,
promised, "I'll come back
tomorrow night - if it does-
n't rain."
Like that boy, we de-
claire our love for the Lord
with our lips, but we deny it
with our lives. For the Bible
says, "You that love the Lord
hate evil."
Evil isn't a trifle, it's a
tragedy; it's not a plaything,
it's a point.
It's not enough to avoid
evil, you must abhor it. You
can't love the Lord without
hating the vil He hates.
Do you really love the
Lord?


By Kristin Finney
What a beautiful Fa-
ther's Day service we
had Sunday morning.
We began with a spe-
cial performance by
Shekinah, singing, "To
Meet the Lamb." Billy
Washington followed
with the offertory
prayer. The worship
choir then sang, "Great
is the Lord Almighty."
Pastor Jim Carey
spoke from John 3:16 &
17 of the Holy Father,
and how He gave His
Son to die for us, mere
sinners, when we were
so. undeserving. We
heard personal testi-
monies from some of
the fathers of our
church and their chil-
dren. Phil and his son,
Marcus Holbrook; Dan
Campbell and. his
daughter, Janie Barnes;
and Bill Rutherford and
his son, Will Ruther-
ford, were those that we
heard from.
Upcoming events at
Madison First Baptist

NFCC Opens Its Nursing Lab

To Suwannee-Hamilton

Technical Students


Like many other
schools in this area,
Suwannee-Hamilton
Technical Center is
faced with declining
availability of hands-on
clinical training oppor-
tunities at health care fa-
cilities, especially in
specialty areas like ma-
ternal and newborn
. care. In an effort to offer
its students the best
training available, SHTC
practical nursing in-
structors LaFrenchee
McCreary and Earlene
Howard contacted the
North Florida Commu-
nity College Allied
Health department to
find out how NFCC was
addressing the issue of
declining clinical op-
tions.
The solution: NFCC's
patient simulation lab
which offers 'the latest
technology and equip-


ment including life-like
patient simulators, sim-
ulation equipment that
mimics actual patient
conditions and virtual
IV or intravenous simu-
lators.
NFCC Allied Health
Director Nita Fico
promptly invited the
SHTC instructors to
bring their students over
to the NFCC campus to
visit and utilize the col-
lege's simulation lab for
clinical exercises and ex-
periences in obstetrics,
newborn care and car-
dio-pulmonary resusci-
tation. Seventeen SHTC

dents attended the clini-
cal at NFCC, directed by-

One of the more important battles in the Civil
War, of the three fought on Florida soil, is the Battle
of Olustee, fought in Baker County, 74 miles from
Madison County. It resulted in a confederate victory,
with 1,861 union casualties, and 946 confederate ca-
sualties.
In 1864, it was the goal of the union government
to retake possession of Florida, and organize a civil
government there. In the hope of capturing Talla-
hasseze, a naval party of more than 7,000 men, under
the command of Gen. Truman Seymour, arrived in
Jacksonville on Feb. 7, 1864.
The repelling confederate force, consisting of
5,200 men, was under the command of Gen. Joseph
Finnegan. Under Finnegan was a force of more than
2,000 Floridians, with reinforcement troops from
Charleston, commanded by Brig. Gen. A.H. Colquitt
and Col. G. Harrison.
Included in the number of soldiers who fought
on Feb. 7, are at least 12 recorded names of Madison
County men. Three sons of William J. Overstreet
fought in the battle that day, along with John H.
Newsom, J.G. Williams, Capt. O.F. Peek, Joe Bishop,
Martin Lanier, John Herring, Frank Moseley, Frank
Pope and Jim Lanier.
* These names were recorded in a letter from an
Olustee soldier recounting citizens of Madison
County he fought alongside. However, these listed
men are just the confederate supporters.'
According to historian Jerrell Shofner in his
book, History of Jefferson County, there were sever-
al Madison County men who joined the 2nd Florida
Union Calvary, though no specific names are men-
tioned.
The confederate soldiers took up a defensive po-
sition at Olustee, as union calvary marched west-
ward.
An account of the battle, in Fleming's Memoirs
of Florida, states: "On the 20th, General Seymour
moved out from his position at St. Mary's with the
intention, he afterward reported, of meeting the en-
emy at, or near, Lake City, and of the pushing his
Calvary on to destroy the railroad bridge over the
Suwannee River. The Federal Army marched on
without resistance until, in the afternoon, about six
miles west of Sanderson, the Calvary encountered


Of


the Georgia and Florida troopers, under command
of Col. Caraway Smith, three or four miles east of
the Confederate entrenchments."
The union general immediately rushed in his
main body of soldiers, as one of Finnegan's cap-
tains sent a messenger to warn his commander of
the enemy's approach. Georgia regiments had al-
ready been dispatched to support the confederate
calvary Finnegan then hastened toward the larger
body of Colquitt's brigade and a battery command-

ed by Robert Gamble of Jefferson County.
In his report, Gen. Finnegan wrote, "Perceiving
that in this movement the force under General
Colquitt's command might become too heavily en-
gaged to withdraw without a large supporting force,
and intending that if the enemy should prove to be
in not too great strength to engage them, I ordered a
quick succession, within the space of an hour, the
whole command to advance to the front, and I, my-
self, went upon the field."
The opposing side met in the pine forest "as-
they were hurried up on either side to plunge into
the fight," writes Fleming.
Colquitt was reportedly the first confederate
commander on the field. He formed his line under
the fire of the federal advance guard. Gamble sent
his cannons, which were followed up by Calvary,
onto the field. With Gamble's enforcement at his
rear, Colquitt advanced on the enemy

The federal batteries were arriving "double
quick time," and had begun to deploy a strong line.
Four federal batteries, hastening into position, be-
gan hurling canisters at short range and drowning
out the roar of the Florida guns.
General Harrison of the confederate supporters
brought two regiments into line with Colquitt. With
new strength in numbers, Colquitt once again ad-
vanced, with the Sixth Florida Battalion, which con-
sisted of several of the named Madison County men,
at his right flank. Colquitt managed to drive the Fed-
erals back, and captured five pieces of artillery
Then there was a short pause in the confederate
firing because the ammunition had been exhausted.
Once the cartridges had been filled, the confederate
line pushed forward a third time around nightfall.
. As Gen. Harrison. turned the federal flank,
Colquitt charged the front. This proved to be an ef-
fective attack as the federal line began to "melt
away," as Fleming put it.
Fleming concludes his recollection: "The victo-
rious Confederates pursued, dispersing the succes-
sive line of defense formed by Seymour's men, until
night put an end to the conflict ... Thence for ten
miles, during the night, they hurried on to the St.
Mary's River, the wounded filling the night air with
lamentations, the crippled horses neighing in pain,
and a full moon kissing the cold clammy lips of the
dying."
The total confederate loss was seven officers and
86 menkilled, 49 officers and 798 were wounded, and
six were reported missing - a total of 946 casual-
ties. The federal loss was reported as 11 officers and
192 men killed, 42 officers and 1,110 wounded, and
506 were reported.missing - a total of 1,861 casual-
ties. According the Gen. Finnegan's report, the Con-
federates captured 200 of federal soldiers and five
cannons, 1,600 stand of arms, and 130,000 rounds of
cartridges.
� Wounded soldiers, both federal and confederate,
were transported via train to hospitals in Madison,
and Jefferson counties. Homes were used as hospi-
tals for the injured men.
A reported 28 soldiers died during hospitaliza-
fion, and a plot in the Oakridge Cemetery at Madison
was set aside for them. The men were buried there in
unmarked graves, with only a single monument to
mark the area as the gravesite for the soldiers.

.June is the start of summer and is the official Na-
tional Pet Adoption Month. What a better way is
there to begin a great summer that to adopt a pet?
There are so many animals in your local shelters
that need loving homes. Many of these animals have
been abused, mistreated, abandoned or neglected.
Here are some great tips to get you ready for your pet.
The shelter where you intend to adopt your pet
should be clean and professional. Make sure the staff
is friendly and has a good understanding of the pet's
behavior. If the shelter and cages are dirty and the
pets look distant and timid, run!
If you have children or another pet and you are
getting them a companion, bring them with you so
you can see the interaction between your children
and/or pet and the new pet you intend to adopt. Noth-
ing is worse than bringing home a new pet just to
bring it back because they become aggressive toward
your children or pet.
Research, research, research! Have questions
about where the pet came from and how they have in-
teracted with the staff. Does the pet have a behavior
issue, etc.?
Do you have time for a pet? Dogs, cats and other
animal companions cannot be ignored just because
you're tired or busy They require food, water, exer-
cise, care and companionship every day of every
year. Many animals in the shelter are there because
their owners.didn't realize how much time it took to
care for them.
Be prepared. The costs of pet ownership can be
quite high. Licenses, training classes, spaying and
neutering, veterinary care, vaccinations, grooming,
toys, food, kitty litter, and other expenses add up
quickly
Here is a pet essentials grocery list to prepare for
even before you get your new pet home:
Medicines to fight fleas, ticks, heartworms and
other nasty bugs. Be prepared to protect your pets
from nasty bugs that can hurt your pet(s). These
types of medicines are especially necessary for pets
who like to spend time in the yard.
Have a place for your pet to sleep. Having a pet
bed is perfect because it creates a safe place and your

pet can identify a resting place.
Choose the right pet food. You should buy pet
food that is suited for your pet's age and type. Pets
who have the wrong food diet can get severely sick.
One good way for you to train your pet and give
them exercise as well is having toys and treats. Treats
are a great way to reinforce good behavior and to
train your pet to obey
Groom your pet(s). Brushing your pet helps re-
duce the amount of allergens that your pet puts up in
the air.
Although it looks daunting to get a pet, it is one
of the most rewarding things you can do for a pet and
yourself. Once you have the essentials in place, every-
thing else will fall into place and you will enjoy the
love that your pet will bring.
Pets bring so much joy into your life that it can't
be quantified.

Ventilation Is Important To


Home And Homeowner Health


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
More than ever,
homeowners are frus-
trated by poor-perform-
ing roofing products,
especially when a new
roof costs between
$5,000 and $10,000 and
lasting only 10 to 12
years. In some cases, it is
a troublesome brand of
materials that are the
cause. More often, how-
ever, inadequate attic
ventilation is the cul-
prit.
Building standards,
driven by energy short-
ages, have sewn up the
homes tighter than a
drum. Surprisingly,
standards of ventilation
adopted in the 1930s are
still in use today. There-
fore, most homes are
woefully under-ventilat-
ed.
If one takes a mo-
ment to think about it,
it's easy to understand
why ventilation and en-
ergy-efficiency work as a
paradox, countering
each other. Many of the
principles of creating an
energy-efficient home
deal with locking air in-
side the home to prevent
heat loss. This, in turn,
creates an environment
of continuously recycled
air. Unfortunately in re-
cent years, this has. led
to indoor air pollution
becoming a bigger prob-
lem than outdoor air pol-
lution.
Air filtration sys-
tems can help purify this
recycled air, but energy-
efficient homes lock in


moisture as well as air.
This can lead to conden-
sation forming on win-
dows, mold problems,
and roofing failures
caused by wood rot and
ice dams. Moisture and
humidity is especially
bad in Madison County
Roof ventilation is the
best solution, and, in
most cases, the only way
- to prevent these air and
* moisture problems.
Roof ventilation is a
major concern to home-
owners who is contem-
plating having their
home re-roofed as well.
Consider the average
household produces
from four to five pounds
of water vapor per day.
To illustrate how much
water that is, go to the
kitchen sink, fill an emp-
ty ohe-gallon container
with water, and pour
that on the floor.
In poorly ventilated
homes, this moisture
has nowhere to go. So it
forms condensation on
the underside of the ply-
wood sheeting of thd
roof, causing the ply-
wood to expand, buckle,
and delaminate. Natu-
rally, this degrading ply-
wood has a detrimental
effect on the roofing, in-
cluding reduced nail
holding power, wind


damage due to an un-
even deck, and stress
cracks due to unstable
decking materials. This
is why turbine ventila-
tors should never be cov-
ered up in the winter.
In spite of the need
to conserve heat and air
conditioning, homeown-
ers should investigate
ventilation options, es-


pecially when building
or purchasing a new
home. For an expense
ranging from $500-5000,
homeowners can install
fan driven systems.
These are readily avail-
able. at local home im-
provement stores.

What Is Heat Recovery

Ventilation (HRV)?


Fr r. i,'
am


~. -~.


i . i
7 ,





An eco-friendly way to create ventilation throughout a
I home is to install a heat recovery ventilation (HRV) appli-
ance.
Heat recovery ventilation appliances offer the opti-
mum solution for systematic, energy-saving ventilation of
new homes and renovation projects.
A ventilation appliance is usually mounted in your loft
or utility area, connected via ductwork to ceiling terminals.
One fan extracts stale warm air through these terminals
. from your wet rooms (kitchens, bathrooms, etc.) and
. takes it to the ventilation appliance to be exhausted out-
side.
Meanwhile, another fan draws fresh filtered.air from
I outside and supplies it through ceiling terminals in the
habitable rooms of your home (bedrooms, dining rooms,
studies, living rooms).
During this process, a heat exchanger within the ap-
pliance transfers up to 95% of the heat from the outgoing
stale air to the incoming fresh air.
In warmer months, the heat recovery process can be
bypassed to ensure that cooler fresh air enters the home.

Taking The Pane Out Of Windows


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Windows are about
both appearance and
function. On the outside,
they help define the
character of a home or
building and on the in-
side they let in light ac-
cording to their size and


dows let in enough light?
Do they need to be big-
ger, or does a plant out-
side need trimming to
let in more light? Is
there too much, glaring
.sunlight streaming in?
Are the windows allow-
ing you to enjoy a great
view? Do you have


I-':T 4.~


structure. Getting it
right both inside and
out, and in terms of
what works well and
what looks right, is an
interesting challenge.
So, if considering
changes to windows,
'take time to determine
what the finished project
should look like.
First, it's important
to decide whether win-
dows should be a distinc-
tive architectural feature
or if they are simply tak-
ing up space along the
wall. Take a look at the
windows of neighboring
homes - do the windows
fit in with the style of the
street? Are they made
from similar materials?
Is their size in propor-
tion to the wall or would
they look better if they
were bigger or framed
better?
Also, condition is
important. Are they
warped or well fitted?
This is an energy fea-
ture, not just a matter of
appearance. Do the win-


enough privacy from the
outside world? These are
all important questions
to consider.
Questions regarding
maintenance should also
be asked. Is there con-
densation on the inside
of the window? Can the
windows be opened to let
in fresh air? Is there too
much noise from a road?
By answering all
these questions, one can
define the positive and
negative aspects of cur-
rent and future win-
dows. Perhaps simply
stripping the paint from
wooden frames and
starting again - if the
windows are in good
condition but just look-
ing a bit scruffy - would
be the most cost effective
option. It will also help
prevent problems in the
future by sealing the
frames and keeping wa-
ter out.
If windows are gen-
erally fine but a bit
drafty, draft 'excluders
can be placed around the


windows - nowadays
these can be very subtle,
in fact virtually unseen.
And if security is an is-
sue, don't forget to fit
window locks, especially
on ground floor win-
dows. Toughened glass
and double-glazing will
also help keep intruders'
out. Of course, if really
worried, then metal bars
could be installed.
If lack of light is a
problem, then consider
creating a new or bigger
window opening,. but
look first whether there
are obstacles such as a
large tree or unnecessar-
ily heavy curtains that
could be replaced with
something less bold. If
too much light is coming
in, think of ways to
shade a room - light
sheer curtains can cut
out.glare. Planting a tree
or installing a canopy
over a window can also
protect from too much
sun.
'Finally, on the in-
side, don't forget that
window dressings have a
big impact on the look
and feel of the room. For
a modern look, replace
thick curtains with
blinds or wooden shut-.
ters. To create a s.umptu-
ous, luxurious feel, go
for beautifully patterned
or textured curtains. For
a bit of fun, paint the
window frames a bright
color or plaft up win-
dow boxes to brighten up
the view.


Homeowners Search

For Insurance

Discounts

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing. Inc.
With the current state of the economy,
more and more homeowners are looking for in-
surance discounts. Many are turning to compa-
nies that offer bundles, where multiple
insurance lines, and even home security sys-
tems are included. allowing for substantial sav-
ings on the overall package.
Home insurance rates have steadily in-
creased over the past five years with--12 percent
of U.S. homeowners reporting a premium in-
crease last year. Catastrophic storms making
landfall in Florida play a large part, and have
caused many insurance providers to increase
rates or decline coverage in coastal. storm-
prone regions.
With the unemployment rate at a 40-year
high and the mortgage crisis still at hand,
homeowners under strain from the current
economic slump are feeling the affects of these
insurance rate hikes more than ever. A 2008
study by J.D. Power and Associates shows that
satisfaction levels among home insurance cus--
tomers have flat-lined over the past five years in
a direct correlation with rising home insur-
ance rates. Further. data from a 2008 poll on
HomeInsurance.corn reported that 91 percent of
respondents were unaware of what discounts
they were taking advantage of on their home-
owners policy - if any at all.
However, as homeowners grow more aware
of the benefits of home insurance discounts,
experts expect satisfaction levels to increase.
For example, in the same 2008 J.D. Power and
Associates study, customers who bundled their
policies reported being more satisfied with
their homeowner's insurance. In addition,
homeowners are now asking for home security
and home safety discounts. Additional savings
of 10-15 percent are often awarded to homeown-
ers who have deadbolts, home security systems,
fire alarms and/or fire extinguishers.
In order to take advantage of all available
discounts, it is recommend to speak with a live
consultant who can offer expert advice and
qualify them for discounts in their area before
purchasing a policy. This is especially the case
where more extensive automobile insurance is
involved. The best advice: Call and compare, or
go online. It's always worth the time of the ef-
fort. Simply avoid being under or over insured.

About Tree Killing Beetle

Florida Agriculture

commissioner Charles
P. Bronson announced
the establishment of a
statewide emerald ash
6iorer (EAB) trapping
program to help prevent
the introduction of this.
dangerous pest of ash
trees. Bronson is also
warning the public that
firewood and other wood
products can contain de-
structive pests, including
EAB, and is urging peo-
ile to take steps to re-
duce the chances of
possible infestations.
: The emerald ash bor-
er, a metallic green beetle
about half an inch in
length, has been on the
*iove since its U.S. ar-
rival in 2002. It has al-
"eady killed ,millions of
ash trees in several


northern, states, and
most recently in Ken-
tucky.
Control of any wood-
boring insect, once estab-

so prevention is critical.

can lead to tree death.
The public can help
prevent the introduction


Sof wood-boring insects
by following these simple
guidelines:
* Do not transport fire-
wood from other states or
within Florida. Emerald
ash borer and other dan-
gerous pests and diseases
can hitchhike on fire-
2* wood infesting new areas
-at an alarming rate.
* When building a fire,
use local firewood only
* Burn all firewood at
your campsite before you
I lehve.
* Do not take any fire-
wood home with you.
To further protect
Florida's plant industry,
the Department recom-
mends that you: -
* Report any suspi-
Scious plant pests or dis-
o eases.
* Don't pack a pest.
When you travel, don't
pack food or other prod-
ucts in your luggage that
might contain harmful
pests and diseases.
* Purchase only certi-
fied plants from regis-
tered nurseries.
Bronson is urging
the public to help protect
native ash trees and
Florida's natural envi-
ronment by preventing
the introduction of
harmful pests and dis-
eases like the emerald
ash borer. If you. think
you have seen an emer-
ald ash borer or a dis-
eased ash tree, contact
1-888-397-1517. For infor-
mation, visit www.doacs
