Pros And

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The price of
progress often seems too
much to bear, while the
consequence of doing
nothing is a guarantee
that nothing will change.
It's somewhat like step-
ping into that Bible story
where the master leaves
behind talents (money)
for three servants to care
for while he's away. Two
of the servants invest
and double the money,
while the third simply
buries it for safety When
the master returns, he is
very pleased with the
two who invested, but
takes the money away
from the third because
he didn't do anything
with the money it while
it was entrusted to him.

Children from both Madison and
Jefferson County attended the camp
together.
Kim Barnhill, administrator for

"For some reason, adolescents
seem to be at greater risk for contract-

said.
Barnhill urges everyone who may

Residents Urged

To Stay Safe

And Healthy

This Summer
A death, which may have been caused by an in-
fection in a freshwater lake in Madison County has
caused concern among environmental health author-
ities. The health department is urging caution this
summer
The Madison/Jefferson County Health Depart-
ment is urging everyone to be safe and stay healthy
this summer.
The following precautions are advised to de-
crease the possibility of infection and injury while
enjoying Madison County's freshwater recreational
areas:
No diving. Diving in shallow water can result
in permanent injury or death.
Wear nose clips or hold your nose when swim-
ming, jumping or diving in any fresh water. Closed
nostrils reduce your risk of infection by amoeba,
which is a rare but serious condition.
Do not swim in warm, standing water, such as
ponds and storm water and retention areas. Bacte-
ria and other harmful organisms thrive in warm,
standing water.

By Bryant Thigpen
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Spring practice for returning Florida State
Seminoles is over, and the team returned to the field
on Tuesday, June 30, for summer conditioning. This
time, the incoming freshmen players made their
first appearance in the garnet and gold. Madison's
own Jacobbi McDaniel and Chris Thompson were
among those who put on their garnet and gold jer-
seys for the first time.
"Jacobbi and Chris are at-
tending summer school along
with the other 2009 freshmen
enrolled at Florida State," stat-
ed head coach Bobby Bowden.
"They are working out in the
afternoons with our strength
coach Todd Stroud, which
gives him a chance to evaluate

Jacobbi McDaniel work with them, we do get re-
ports from Coach Stroud of their progress."
According to Florida
State's spring guide, Mc
Daniel was ranked as the
fifth best player in the na-
tion by ESPN and the top
defensive tackle. He was
listed as the fifth best .A'
player in the class by

Auburn Coach Tommy -
Tubberville deemed him Chris Thompson
"one of the best." Mc-
Daniel is a 2009 graduate of Madison County High
School.
Ranked second best as the nation's all-purpose
player is Chris Thompson. According to Rivals.com,
Thompson was ranked the 19th best prospect in
Florida. He was also listed as number 39 on

The Best Social

Networking Site
And let us consider one another in order to stir up
love and good works, 25 notforsaking the assembling of
ourselves together as is the manner of some, but ex-
horting one another and so much the more as you see
the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25
I belong to an awesome social networking group.
Chances are that many of my readers belong to such
a group, even if it is not the one that I belong to. I'm
not talking about Facebook, MySpace or any of the
other myriad online networking sites. I'm talking
about a group that does not even require an Internet
connection to participate.
The group I belong to is a church. In my case, I am
a member of Midway Church of God. While my net-
work may be small, it is a member of a much larger
network called the body of Christ. Many other
churches, of all kinds of denominations belong to that
network. The only requirement is that they be a true
Bible-believing church who believes in one triune God
(Father, Son and Holy Ghost) and salvation through
the blood of Jesus Christ.
We are told in Hebrews 10:24-25 to stir up love and
good works and not forsake the assembling of our-
selves together. A Christian can be a Christian with-
out going to church, but a car can also be a car without
gas, water and oil but try to run a car without those
things. Try to live a Christian life without going to
church and engaging in fellowship with other believ-
ers who encourage and exhort you. It's not easy, is it?
After a while, your Christian life runs down and you
become useless for Christ, even though you may still
be saved. Cars need to have gas, oil and water to run.
A Christian needs prayer, Bible study and church to
run.
I have been through a number of crises this past
year. If it had not been for my network of friends at
my church and other churches who have prayed for
me and helped me in so many other ways, I could not
have made it.
If you do not go to church, you are invited to join
us each Sunday morning, Sunday evening and
Wednesday evening at Midway Church of God. I'm
sure that you will be welcome at other churches also.
If you do go to church, make sure you're there (if at all
possible) when the doors are open. It's a social net-
working site that every one can enjoy

Water supply Forty percent of the grading is
based on the community's water supply. This part of
the survey focuses on whether the community has suf-
ficient water supply for fire suppression beyond daily
maximum consumption. ISO surveys all components
of the water supply system, including pumps, storage,
and filtration. To determine the rate of flow the water
mains provide, ISO observes fire-flow tests at repre-
sentative locations in the community. Finally they
evaluate the distribution of fire hydrants.
Recently, Sirmans VFD was pleased to announce it
received a rating of "8B," and while this rating is
above that assigned to developed areas, it is an excep-
tional achievement that should save homeowners seri-
ous money over time. Residents within the Sirmans
VFD fire district or five miles from the Sirmans' fire
station are eligible for this rating. Residents unsure of
the distance to their home from the Sirmans VFD may
call 973-1454 for more details.


On behalf of the seniors,
Board of Directors and myself,
we here at the Senior Citizens
Council of Madison County, Inc.
would like to extend our deepest
appreciation to the community
for the wonderful donations of
fans, and funds for the purchase
of fans. This money will help us
to provide numerous seniors with
fans, who are suffering in the
heat this summer. We would also
like to thank everyone for their
contribution of canned goods for
the needy seniors.
Special thanks to the follow-
ing people and organizations:
Tammy Stevens and Family
John & Cindy Burnett
Beggs Funeral Home


This rating reflects the strides that the Sirmans
Volunteer Fire Department has made to provide better
fire protection. Sirmans district does not have a hy-
drant system, so it must rely on tanker transport for
water, which makes achieving low ratings very diffi-
cult. By utilizing FEMA grants to purchase
tankers, and based on the hard work of their volun-
teers, Sirmans has been able to achieve what few rur-
al departments without hydrants have been able to
do.
Additional improvements to the department in-
clude the acquisition of a new brush truck: Sirmans
Brush Truck 2 was purchased with a FEMA Assis-
tance to Fire Fighters Grant.
"This truck will allow us to respond more quickly
and effectively to woods fire than ever before. Getting
to the woods fire as soon as possible will give us the op-
portunity to extinguish or at least contain the
fire early while it's still small and containable. We are
grateful to FEMA for making these grants available, as it
would be impossible to obtain this quality of equipment
any other way" George Blevins noted.

A Women's Pregnancy Center To Hold Benefit

Banquet September 15 At Divine Events


This September Dr. Voddie
Baucham is coming to Madison,
as the keynote speaker for A
Women's Pregnancy Center's Cel-
ebration of Life Benefit Banquet.
Dr. Baucham came into national
prominence in 2006 when he set
the audience of Southern Baptists
ablaze at the Dallas/Fortworth
Metroplex as the unscheduled
speaker at the their State Evange-
lism Conference.
The challenge he issued to the
over 1,000 pastors and church
leaders cut straight to the heart of
the crisis in contemporary Evan-
gelicalism. Dr. Baucham spoke of
the attrition rate of future Christ-
ian generations, citing the statis-
tics of a birth rate among
Christians of two children per
family and the fact that 75% of
teens leave the church by the end
of their freshman year in college.
The math summary is that it
takes two Christian families in
one generation to get a single
Christian into the next genera-
tion. His challenge is for the
church to address those odds, a


message Dr. Baucham will bring
to north Florida in a series of
speaking engagements, commenc-
ing on Tuesday, September 15th in
Madison, Florida at Divine
Events.
As writer, preacher and bible
teacher, Dr. Baucham's prophetic
message is not subtle but also nev-
er harsh. It is a message born out
of the realism of Dr. Baucham's
own experience as the son of a
single, teen, African-American,
Buddhist mother living in south-
central Los Angeles. Through the
self-sacrifice of his mother and
her wisdom to release him to the
guardianship of a retired Marine
Corps drill instructor uncle dur-
ing his late adolescence and a col-
lege teammate who shared with
him about Jesus Christ, Baucham
has a personal story His story fu-
els his passion for restoring fami-
lies and cultivating family driven
Christian faith.
This message is especially rel-
evant when 46% of children are
born to single moms in Florida
and over 70% in the African


American community. A
Women's Pregnancy Center is a lo-
cal faith-based agency that ad-
dresses the needs of mothers by
assisting women free of charge
who think they might be preg-
nant. Services include free preg-
nancy tests and educational
ultrasounds, community health
referrals, material help and emo-
tional and counseling support.
The center educates women re-
garding their options in pregnan-
cy, but does not perform or refer
for abortions.
The Madison AWPC office is
located at 345 NW Marian St., 2
blocks off of North Florida Com-
munity College Campus and
serves dozens of Madison area
women each month at no charge.
The work of AWPC is supported
exclusively through private dona-
tions from individuals, businesses
and churches. To enquire about
attending the September 15th
Benefit Banquet at Divine Events
please call the administrative of-
fice of AWPC at (850) 297-1174 or e-
mail enquiries to awpc@awpc.cc.

Think Food Safety In

The Summer Heat --


Warmer
weather brings on Coul
on an increase
of food borne ill- tension Sen
ness during the
summer months iann DoUgl
- better know to t umn
the general pop-
ulation as "food
poisoning." Many bacteria in foods and
the environment can grow very fast at
temperatures from 40OF to 140F. With
summer temperatures in the 90's in
Florida, picnics and grilling outdoors
only increase the potential for illness.
Because bacteria is invisible, it is
hard to convenience people their sum-
mer meals served outdoors need special
care. Dr. Amy Simonne, UF Extension
Specialist in Food Safety and Quality,
has a few suggestions for summer food
safety
Wash your hands with clean potable
water and soap often, especially before
eating or preparing food.
If there is no clean water to wash
your hands, use alcohol-based gel to
clean your hands.
Keep the hand sanitizers away from
small children and follow directions
carefully
When temperatures are above 90F,
perishable foods should not be left out
for more than one hour.
Safe shelf-life of perishable food is a
combination of time and temperature.
Discard your perishable foods if it has
been on a picnic table for a long time. If
in doubt, throw it out!
Ice is a food. Handle ice as you
would handle foods. Ice that is used for


cooling
ty drinks and
Y other foods
ice should not be
used in your
IS drink! Con-
sider putting
other perish-
able food in a
separate cooler. Keep ice for drinking
separate from ice for cooling food.
If your family enjoys eating home-
made ice cream in summer, find recipes
without raw eggs. A recipe using eggs
should have steps for cooking the egg
mixture before it is put into the ice
cream churn.
Follow safe handling of fresh fruits
and vegetables to reduce the risk of food
borne illness. Fruits like cantaloupes
and watermelons should be rinsed un-
der running water before slicing to elim-
inate any dirt.
At family picnics, teach your chil-
dren and family members the impor-
tance of good personal hygiene and
serving etiquette to prevent some poten-
tial cross-contamination of germs from
your hand to others!

and nutrition, contact the Madison

By the fire' LL uing
Into my mind oft
come flocking
Nostalgic thoughts
of yesteryear-
In those flick'ring flames
appearing
Scenes and faces so endearing
That softly from my eye a tear
Falls unbidden-


Those flames a colorful
background make
As memories from my
past take shape
Enacting roles in
which they starred-
With them I sing, I
laugh and dance
And even relive an
old romance
Now so fresh, renewed,
unscarred,
Alive, unhidden-

But intruding upon this
firelit stage
Appears the inevitable
character AGE
And Nostalgia flees as
Reality enters
And takes its place
before the flames-
I do not run but rise in wel-
come
Knowing that he is
here to help one
Find her way-


The past, said he,
is great to visit
But stay too long and
you will wish it
To be your permanent home-
Ramble often through
those years
Even though you'll
find some tears
Just never stay too long
For your life is still
worth living
Filled with family,
friends and giving
Every day.

Now when I hear insistent
knocking
Which interrupts my
peaceful rocking
I know I must leave the
past behind-
The opened door shows one
there standing
Patiently waiting on my
landing
With face grown old
and lined

Avoid feeding or contact with wildlife. Natural areas
are home to many animals. Keep your distance.
Protect others. Discarded glass and trash can cause
injury to bathers and wildlife.
Be water safe. Do not go into the water unless you
know how to swim and always swim with a partner.
Avoid mosquito bites to prevent disease by following
the five D's. Avoid being outside at DUSK and DAWN.
DRESS with clothing that covers most of your skin. Use
insect repellents with DEET. DRAIN any standing water
around your home.
The Florida Department of Health has issued a
health alert about a dangerous parasite found in lake and
pond water called naegleria.
Naegleria is a big name for a very tiny parasite
(amoeba). Naegleria fowleri causes an infection that de-
velops when these parasites enter the human body
through the nose, making their way to the brain.
This infection causes a rare, but life-threatening dis-
ease called primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM).
Symptoms of PAM can start as quickly as 1 to 14 days af-
ter infection. Symptoms include headache, fever, nausea,
vomiting and stiff neck.
As the disease moves into the brain, it causes swelling
which leads to confusion, lack of attention, loss of bal-
ance, seizure and hallucinations. This disease usually re-
sults in death within three to seven days.
Do not swim in warm, standing water, such as lakes,
ponds, poorly maintained swimming pools, storm water
holding areas or places that are posted "No swimming."
Bacteria and other harmful organisms thrive in warm,
standing water.
Avoid swimming or jumping into bodies of fresh wa-


ter during the hot summer
months when the water is
warm and the water levels
are low. As temperatures
rise so does your chance of
becoming infected.
Do not dig or stir up
the sand and silt while
swimming in shallow wa-
ter.
This infection cannot
be spread from person to
person or contracted from a
properly maintained swim-
ming pool.

EH.com or search for key-
words Naegleria fowleri at

partment at (850) 973-5000.

were unable to diagnose or treat this illness local-
ly, being forced to endure the inconvenience and
discomfort of traveling outside the county for
those medical services.
County and hospital officials are therefore
very pleased to announce the availability of these
services at Madison County Memorial Hospital.
Facilitated by a loan from the county for diagnos-
tic equipment, combined with a service commit-
ment from Dr. James "Jim" Stockwell a
well-respected specialist in this field from Talla-
hassee to provide services, the community will
now have access to this timely and valuable ser-
vice, not to mention a sizable income stream for
the hospital.
The endoscopy/colonoscopy services will go
into effect shortly, as Stockwell, a gastroenterolo-
gist, intends to offer the services twice a week.
"We are very pleased to offer these services in
Madison County and thank the commissioners for
helping us combat the high incidence of colorectal
cancer in the county. County residents can now
have their colonoscopies performed right here at
home, instead of traveling an hour or more each
way and dealing with the rush of the city," MCMH
CEO David Abercrombie noted.
"Dr. Stockwell is a fantastic physician whom
we are lucky to have with us. We are also very
pleased to create a new revenue source and in-
crease the profitability of the hospital at this criti-
cal time in our history," he added.

Swine Flu

bacteria.
A Madison County
woman, who works as a
nurse in Taylor County,
said that county had test-
ed a suspected case, which
came back negative. She
said that H1N1 is not as
bad as people had once
suspected but that there
is not a vaccine for the
H1N1 virus.
All flu-like symptoms
should be treated with
caution. These symptoms
include high grade fever
(102 or higher), muscle
aches, headaches, runny
nose (more common in
children than in adults),
extreme tiredness, dry
cough, stomach symp-
toms, such as nausea,
vomiting, and diarrhea,
may also occur but are
more common in chil-
dren than adults.
The symptoms of
novel H1N1 flu virus in
people are similar to the
symptoms of seasonal flu
and include fever, cough,
sore throat, runny or
stuffy nose, body aches,
headache, chills and fa-
tigue. A significant num-
ber of people who have
been infected with this
virus also have reported
diarrhea and vomiting.
Also, like seasonal flu, se-
vere illnesses and death
has occurred as a result
of illness associated with
this virus.
Spread of novel H1N1
virus is thought to be
happening in the same
way that seasonal flu
spreads. Flu viruses are
spread mainly from per-
son to person through
coughing or sneezing by
people with influenza.
Sometimes people may
become infected by touch-
ing something with flu
viruses on it and then
touching their mouth or
nose.
As soon as test results
are released, they will be
posted online at www.gr-
eenepublishing.com and
www.ecbpublishing.com.


Wastewater


cont from Page 1A

face this issue constantly, as they work to control the
expenses of today while planning for tomorrow. Of-
ficials become hard pressed to ask residents to ac-
cept new expenses, especially with no guarantee of
payback, although investing by its nature, rarely
comes with guarantees.
Lee Town Manager Cheryl Archambault, who
has also served previously as president of the Madi-
son County Development Council, understands this
dilemma far too well. Constantly searching for new
resources and combing through alternatives, in ad-
dition to speaking to industry specialists and collab-
orating with peers throughout the region, she has
built an exceptional reputation for finding the solu-
tion. In this instance the issue is wastewater, which
planners agree is critical to economic growth, even
for smaller operations.
Starting out, there is always the desire to cap-
ture as much "free money" as possible, typically in
the form of grants. In this situation, the estimated
cost for a wastewater system in Lee, which will be
coordinated with the City of Madison and serve
both commercial and residential uses, is approxi-
mately $5.6 million. To her immense credit, Ar-
chambault has already secured $4.4 million of that
in a grant. The $1.2 million remaining, however,
still leaves officials searching for additional re-
sources, including cost-effective solutions for septic
tank disposal and residential hook-up requirements
associated with the process.
Organizers compared the project to investing in
a residential property Even it tight times without a
renter or buyer, who wouldn't invest in a good prop-
erty if it could be bought for 20 cents on the dollar.
Comparatively, the town has secured approximately
80 percent of the funds free and clear. Regardless of
the evident value though, the 20 percent must be
manageable, which is exactly the focus of the town
council.
Many residents have wished for years to create
more and better jobs throughout the county, includ-
ing Lee. Public and private planners in the region
universally agree that wastewater is an essential el-
ement of that cause. Obviously if it weren't for the
money, few would oppose the proposal, especially
those who want opportunities for their children and
grandchildren, keeping in mind, of course, that the
growth must be compatible with local culture and
values.
Failing and obsolete septic systems (many of
which leached toxic contamination during the re-
cent flooding), increased health standards from reg-
ulators, developer requirements (both commercial
and residential), as well as future jobs are among the
more notable positive impacts of the proposed pro-
ject. The obvious and only challenge is the remain-
ing funding. And if residents were sure this offer
would not be available again in the future, would it
be worth the investment? That's the question the
Lee Town Council is working to answer and invite
input from all interested parties.
The town manager may be contacted at (850) 971-
5867 for more information. The town council meets
at 7 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month, where
the public is welcome and urged to attend.

welcomed back the early
part of 2009. When she
left, no one really did
anything else as the Red
Hats. But when Sullivan
returned, the meetings
were started once again.
"The women love it,"
stated Sullivan. "These
women need something
that will make them feel
special." And the pur-
pose of the Red Hat Soci-
ety is to do just that. The
Red Hats Society is a club


with no rules that gather

that women can have
good clean fun.
The meeting will be

County that our students came from in
the 50's, and also a visit to see Mrs.
Louise Browning, their senior sponsor,
at her home. Mrs. Browning has always
attended the reunions, but of course
her health did not permit it this year, so
we went to her. Dale thought it was
more rewarding to them than it was to
her, and they appreciate the opportuni-
ty to see her and tell her how much she
meant to each of them. They also went
by Mrs. Rachel Reichmann's home and
visited her, then on to Lee School, Pinet-
ta, and the site of where the Cherry
Lake School was before it burned. They
were unable to go to Blue Springs, like
they did in the past, because of the
flooding.
Dinner was catered by Shelby's
Restaurant. They were delighted to
have several teachers as special guests:
Mrs. Glen Baker, Mrs. Carolyn Edwards
and her husband, Howell. They were
also extremely proud to have Mrs.
Kathryn Brown, wife of Coach Dick


Brown and her granddaughter, Ashton
Raines; Mrs. Joyce Primm, wife of
Coach Mack Primm; and Mrs. Iduma
Smith, wife of Mr. David Smith. All of
these teachers and their husbands and
wives have always been a great part of
their legacy, and they appreciate all
they have done for us through the years.
Following a delicious dinner, a spe-
cial memorial service was held to re-
member 17 class members that have
passed away during the past 50 years,
and also 3 of their latest teachers, fol-
lowed by a DVD of their 50 years of his-
tory together.
After the class picture was taken,
the class adjourned to Richard and Dale
Sowell's house again for more remi-
niscing and breakfast later in the
evening. There were a total of 43 class
members that attended during the
weekend, which is a remarkable
turnout. A great time was had by
everyone, and they are looking forward
to many more reunions in the future.

The Church of Tomorrow: Matt Thompson


Ups


And Downs of Christian Living For Young People


By Bryant Thigpen
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Matthew Thompson
was saved during a re-
vival meeting at Macedo-
nia Baptist Church in
Lee at the age of 13. With
nothing much to do for
young Christians,
Thompson got discour-
aged and eventually went
back to his old lifestyle.
About three years
ago, Thompson realized
where he went wrong
and that he turned his
back on God. He felt the
need to rededicate his
life, and he did so one
night at Sirmans Baptist
Church in Greenville.
Currently, Thomp-
son serves as Sunday
School Superintendent
and fills in teaching
classes when needed.


Along with his roles
at his home church,
Thompson has also an-


swered the call to preach,
and evangelizes wherev-
er he gets called.
"I spoke a couple
times at church, but I re-
alized I was called to


preach when I went and
preached at Macedonia
Baptist Church. That


was my first time


Midway Church of God,
where Thompson was in-
spired by the pastor with
these words, "If you can
do anything else but
preach, do it." Although
the words didn't mean
much then, now Thomp-
son has realized exactly
what those words meant
and they put a greater
impact on his call to
preach.
"The theme I've kind
of adopted is sieze the
moment that God's given
me; to preach every op-
portunity I get. I feel like
this is what God has for
me for this time in my
life."


preaching outside my "My goal is to always
home church," Thomp- follow the Lord," he said.
son said. Thompson is currently
His next opportunity attending Covenant
of preaching came at Bible College and Semi-


nary, which he hopes to
complete soon.
"One of the strug-
gles I found was that
once you become a
Christian, the people
who were your friends
are not your friends. It's
a struggle to find gen-
uine relationships and
to refrain from bad in-
fluences," Thompson
stated.
Although there are
real struggles being
young in age and the
faith, Thompson finds
his most rewarding mo-
ments are seeing people
come to the altar after
he's delivered the word
of God. "I know that
God's word went out."
At the age of 21,
Thompson finds himself
in the will of God. "I al-


ways want to strive to
please my Heavenly Fa-
ther."
On October 12, 2008,
Thompson married his
high school sweetheart
and his biggest support,
Devin Thompson.
In his free time away
from the pulpit and
studying, Thompson
likes to spend time with
his wife, Devin; listen to
music (his favorite
groups are Heirline,
LifeSong, Casting
Crowns and Decyfer
Down); his favorite TV
shows are House and
N.C.I.S.; and Wendy's is
his favorite fast food
restaurant.
Thompson and his
wife, Devin, attend Sir-
mans Baptist Church in
Greenville.

Christians Issued A "Call 2 Fall" For Country


By Jan White
On Sunday July 5,
Christians all across
America participated in
"Call 2 Fall," a special
time of prayer for our
country
Churches were urged
to set aside a definite time
during worship services
on July 5th to "call people
to get on their knees and
faces before the Lord in
repentant prayer for God
to reshape our lives and
renew our land."
Sponsored by the
Family Research Council
in Washington, D.C.,


"Call 2 Fall" is simply do-
ing what God says in 2
Chronicles 7:14. "If My
people who are called by
My name will humble
themselves, and pray and
seek My face, and turn
from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from
heaven, and will forgive
their sin and heal their
land."
Organizers describe
"Call 2 Fall" as a call for
corporate humility before
the Lord. "Why Sunday
July 5th? Because on the
day after we celebrate our
'Independence,' we hope


that believers expressed
their 'Dependence' upon
the Lord," states
the website at
www.call2fall.com.
Not only do we have
the teaching of Scripture
and the examples from
history to pray for our
country, but again today,
our nation needs prayer.
We are witnessing
wars, natural disasters,
and financial and moral
collapse "What happens
when a nation turns
away from God?" the
Family Research Council
believes.

JAMES GADSDEN


By Alfa Hunt
Greene Publishing, Inc.
James Gadsden was
an American railroad
promoter as well as a
leading advocate of
Southern Nationalism.
Gadsden was also the
United States minister to
Mexico who was respon-
sible for the Gadsden
Purchase of 1853.
James Gadsden was
born in Charleston,
South Carolina on May
15, 1788. He is noted to
have been the grandson
of the Revolutionary pa-
triot, Christopher Gads-
den. After graduating
from Yale College in 1806,
Gadsden entered busi-
ness, becoming a mer-
chant in his native city.
With the War of 1812,
Gadsden enlisted into the
Army and gained the
rank of captain and
eventually becoming a
colonel by 1820. During
the War of 1812 he served
as an engineer and as an
aide de comp to General
Andrew Jackson.
In October 1820, he
became an inspector-gen-
eral of the Southern Di-
vision, with the rank of
colonel. After receiving
this position, Gadsden
assisted in establishing
military forts through-
out Florida. In 1818,
when Gen. Jackson ar-
rived at the site of
Prospect Bluff, along the
Apalachicola River, the
general commissioned
his young lieutenant and
building officer to con-
struct a temporary fort

Understanding zoning
restrictions and how to
change them can be useful
and profitable for in-
vestors. Changing a prop-
erty's zoning rezoning
- allows investors to pur-
sue a greater variety of
land uses and may result in
increased profits, depend-
ing on the land's location
and the types of properties
around it.
Property zoning re-
strictions place limits on
land uses: A hardware
store cannot be built on
land zoned for residential
property Zoning often in-
cludes restrictions on the
physical aspects of the
buildings themselves, such
as height limits and re-
quired distances from
property lines. Zoning also
designates how many lots
can be created within a cer-


there.
Jackson named it
Fort Gadsden in honor of
his lieutenant. Later he
fought against the Semi-
nole Indians and was re-
sponsible for securing
the evidence which led to
the seizure, trial, and ex-
ecution of two British
agents.
While Gadsden was
in northern Florida, he
was able to acquire some
acreage, as an original
settler, in what would be-
come Jefferson County.
Along with this acreage,
he was able to acquire
other land from the Unit-
ed States government at
minimum price. By1825,
he was setting up a plan-
tation on his newly ac-
quired land, and named
it Wacissa.
From August 1821 to
March 1822 Gadsden
served as adjutant gener-
al, but the Senate refused
to confirm his appoint-
ment. Gadsden resigned
from the Army and
moved to his Florida
plantation, where he was
active in the territory's
affairs by promoting the
selling of lands.
In 1823 he was re-
sponsible for placing the
Seminoles on reserva-
tions and for building the
state's first roads.
During the Seminole
Wars, Gadsden was ap-
pointed by Jackson to
settle negotiation with
the natives in Leon, Jef-
ferson, and Madison
Counties. Gadsden was
appointed by the United


tain area of land, which
can affect subdivision
plans. Property taxes may
also vary with different
zoning designations, de-
pending on county rules.
The most common
type of zoning in the Unit-
ed States is Euclidian zon-
ing, named after the town
of Euclid, Ohio, where it
originated. The goal of this
type of zoning is to pro-
mote orderly community
growth and keep different
property types relegated to
specific areas. Euclidian
zoning is considered to be
"traditional" zoning and
focuses on land use classifi-
cations e.g. single-family
residential, commercial or
industrial and dimen-
sional requirements such
as the height and area of
structures.
There are three other
main types of zoning in the
US. Form-based codes aim


States Secretary of War
to evaluate the native
property in Madison, as
well as the improve-
ments which had been
made to them. For per-
sonal reasons, Gadsden
declined this position.
By the early 1830s,
Gadsden had been ap-
pointed as the new Indi-
an Commissioner and
was to deal with the Indi-
an removal from Florida
directly. When John
Hicks and several other
chiefs refused to relocate
to the West United States
because they didn't know
what the terrain was like
there, Gadsden sent a del-
egation of seven chiefs to
inspect the land.
After returning from
inspection of the west-
ern lands, Hicks realized
that his people would not
be able to resist the white
population that seemed
to flooding into Florida
at the time. He would
then become an advocate
of removal and Gadsden
went about making plans
to remove the tribes with
no opposition. Shortly af-
ter this, Hicks died, pos-

to protect the makeup of
existing neighborhoods
and promote pedestrian
safety by regulating struc-
tures' forms and place-
ment within public spaces.
Incentive zoning rewards
developers with higher
density for projects in ex-
change for doing some-
thing in the
neighborhood's interest.
And performance zoning
allows developers to build
almost any structure that
meets the county's perfor-
mance standards such
as regulations on density,
noise and traffic flow.
Investors may decide
to try to rezone properties
to increase market value,


sibly with the aid of ar-
senics administered to
him by people close to
him.
Whether he died of
natural causes or be-
cause of secret plots, his
death marked the re-
moval of a peacemaker
between the white set-
tlers and the natives. The
Second Seminole War
would soon start after
this, only making things
more frustrating for
Gadsden.
Politically, Gadsden
failed several times in
bids to represent the
Florida territory in the
United States Congress.
An appointive legislative
council was made elec-
tive in 1826. Elections for
territorial delegates soon
became exciting events.
Joseph M. White, anoth-
er planter from Jefferson
County and Gadsden
both participated, and
White beat Gadsden with
742 votes to 460, gaining
him reelection in 1825.
Gadsden was a close
friend of Richard Keith
Call since both had been
proteges of General
Jackson and soon territo-
rial governor Duval be-
came allied with these
two men. White was
their primary opponent
and most of the differ-
ences were based on bit-
terness between White
and Call. At one point, a
duel had almost ensued
between the two men if it
had not been for their
close friends interven-
ing.




Estate


or they may have specific
plans in mind that could
not be accomplished with
the property's current zon-
ing.
The rezoning process
varies from county to
county The first stop for
investors interested in
pursuing a rezone oppor-
tunity should be the coun-
ty's planning and
development department.
In Madison County, offi-
cials may be reached at
(850) 973-1739.
As a general rule, a re-
zoning petition must be in
line with the county's fu-
ture land use plans. The
petition process usually in-
volves filling out forms


White would hold his
position for 12 more
years and in every elec-
tion until 1831 Gadsden
opposed him. That year,
Gadsden again lost with
only 1,866 votes against
White's 1,933 votes. Gov-
ernor Duval was enraged
by the outcome and
called for another elec-
tion. Criticism mounted
against the governor's
actions, but Andrew
Jackson appointed Gads-
den to an United States
office.
Regardless of this
new office, White won the
second election with an
even higher majority.
This election feuding
would continue and af-
fect the affairs of Flori-
da's early statehood. In
1832 when he backed nul-
lification of President
Jackson's earlier Tariff
Act, Gadsden lost the
support and friendship of
the president.
During the 1830s
Gadsden became a sup-
porter of Southern Na-
tionalism and the
expansion of all South-
ern railroads. He sug-
gested ending the South's
economic dependency on
the North by providing a
direct link between the
South and Europe. This
direct link would be the
result of connecting all
Southern railroads into
one system and connect-
ing the Southern system
with the Pacific Coast.
He promoted these
schemes during several
Southern Economic Con-


and attaching comprehen-
sive plans and specifica-
tions and doing a thorough
job of presenting to the
Planning and Zoning
Board, being careful to
cover all the technical re-
quirements so as not to get
disqualified.
When putting togeth-
er a land use petition, it is
also wise to consider the
input of the neighborhood.
If the neighbors are op-
posed to a proposed land
use and suggest alterna-
tives, it may be worthwhile
to consider taking their
suggestions in order to
avoid conflicts. And al-
though the application
process varies between


ferences between 1837
and 1850. During the
1840s, Gadsden served as
president of the
Louisville, Cincinnati
and Charleston Railroad
and while in that posi-
tion, he greatly expanded
its mileage. His ideas
concerning Southern
transportation were con-
sidered to have been far-
sighted, but he was
continually frustrated
both by his devotion to
Southern Nationalism
and the general opposi-
tion of other Southern
leaders whose ideas of
state rights prevented
any regional develop-
ment from taking place.
In 1853 Gadsden
urged the purchase of
territory along the Gila
River from Mexico in or-
der to build a southern
railroad between New
Orleans and California.
He won the support of
U.S. Secretary of War Jef-
ferson Davis and, with
the help of Davis; Gads-
den was appointed minis-
ter to Mexico by
President Franklin
Peirce.
Gadsden next advo-
cated purchasing exten-
sive territory from
Mexico, but he was suc-
cessful in acquiring only
a 45,535 acres, which are
now parts of New Mexico
and Arizona. This deal
became known as the
Gadsden Purchase
James Gadsden died
in his South Carolina
home on Dec. 26, 1858 at
the age of 70.


counties, it is estimated
that the process will take
between four and six
months depending on the
experience level of the pe-
titioner.
Rezoning is an excel-
lent way for investors to in-
crease profits and land use
options, but excessive
use can affect their tax sta-
tus as a real estate investor
or real estate dealer. There
is a fine line between the
two, and it is often hard to
distinguish. For more in-
formation, again, contact

ner at (850) 973-3179.

NOMINATIONS BEING ACCEPTED FOR GEORGE


TOWNSEND GOOD NEIGHBOR AWARD


The Madison Coun-
ty Farm Bureau is
presently taking nomi-
nations for the Annual
George Townsend Good
Neighbor Award, which
will be presented at the
local Madison County
Farm Bureau Annual
Meeting, which will be
held on Tuesday, Sep-
tember 15.
This award has been
presented annually for
the past nine years. The
award is given to some-
one in the community
who truly demonstrates
what being a "Good


Neighbor' is all about.
"Mr. Townsend fit
into this category as be-
ing a good neighbor to
everyone he came in
contact with," said
Richard Terry, Board
Member for the Farm
Bureau.
Townsend owned
and operated the Madi-
son Stockyards for years
and years, and his son
and daughter and her
husband still operate
Townsend Livestock
Company in Madison.
"Mr. George always
had a kind word for


everyone he met, and es-
pecially the younger
generation. He support-
ed every youth program
held in Madison County,
as well as surrounding
counties. He never met a
child he did not really
love and have time for.
That was what
George Townsend was
all about," added Terry
"Farm Bureau is indeed
proud to present this
award every year to
someone in the commu-
nity who makes a differ-
ence in our world."
If anyone has a nom-


inee who would qualify
for the award, they need
to get the name and a
short one-page narrative
about the person, which
would include why the
person deserves the
award. This nomination
must be delivered to the
Madison County Farm
Bureau office before Fri-
day, September 4. The
applications will be
judged by a committee of
the Madison County
Farm Bureau, and the
presentation will be
made at the September
15 annual meeting.


Yogi Bear Park Provides


Perfect Family Vacation


By Bryant Thigpen
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Looking for the best
beach around for a get-
away? Panama City
Beach recently made a
splash by being recog-
nized by the Travel Chan-
nel as one of America's
Best Beaches for Fami-
lies.
This Northwest
Florida destination
ranks number five on the
Travel Channel's list of
Top 10 family-friendly
beaches in the United
States. It is cited for pris-
tine beaches, award-win-
ning cuisine, family
attractions, child-friend-
ly restaurants and ac-
commodations, water
sports, entertainment,
nightlife and more.
"Panama City Beach
is proud to receive this
recognition from the
Travel Channel," says
Dan Rowe, president and
CEO of the Panama City
Beach Convention and
Visitors Bureau. "From
spectacular beaches, wa-
ter parks, and marine at-
tractions to world-class
golf, fishing, shopping
and dining, travelers of
all ages find everything
they're looking for in a


great beach vacation
here in Panama City
Beach."
Scenes of Panama
City and nearby Panama
City Beach are featured
prominently in the 1993
film Ruby in Paradise
and episodes of CSIMia-
mi and NCIS. Elvis also
has a verse in the song,
Guitar Man, referencing
the famous beach par-
adise.
Among Panama City
Beach's other family fa-
vorites noted by the Trav-
el Channel, Gulf World
Marine Park offers enter-
taining animal shows and
a chance to swim with
dolphins.
Shipwreck Island Wa-
terpark is one of Flori-
da's largest theme water
parks. Ripley's Believe It
or Not! Odditorium fea-
tures fascinating finds
from around the world,
while ZooWorld Zoologi-
cal and Botanical Park is
home to more than 250 an-
imals, including rare and
endangered species, in a
tropical setting.

tion on Panama City, and
