Police Officer



Resigns

Resignation comes amid allegations
that officer possessed and showed
nude photos of underage girls


Submitted by
Rick Davis,
Chief of Police
The City of Madison Po-
lice Department is tak-
ing action to remove one
of its officers. According
to the department, they
received a complaint on
July 7 that Officer Daniel
McLeod had nude photos
of girls under the age of
18 on his personal cell
phone, and at some time
showed the photos to
other people, including
persons under the age of
18. The initial review of
the complaint by inter-
viewing witnesses deter-
mined that the
complaint was accurate.
Officer McLeod was
placed on administrative
leave on the same date
(July 7), until an inter-
nal investigation could
be completed.
The department was
able to contact and inter-
view the female subject
(who resides in another
county), determined her
age to be under 18, and
determined that she vol-
untarily sent at least one


photo to Officer
McLeod's cell phone.
The department sus-
tained the complaint
and determined that Of-
ficer McLeod violated
Florida Statutes and De-


Daniel McLeod
partmental Policy by
possessing nude photos
of a person under age 18,
and showing the photo
to others, including per-
sons under the age of 18.
Officer McLeod was
given a notice of termi-
nation on Tuesday, July
21. He began his employ-
ment with the City of
Madison Police Depart-
ment in December 2008,


and is a probationary of-
ficer. He had no other
previous complaints of
misconduct prior to this
incident. Under Florida
law and city policy, he
may appeal his termina-
tion, prior to the termi-
nation becoming
permanent. On July 22,
Officer McLeod submit-
ted a letter of resigna-
tion, electing not to
appeal the department's
decision to terminate
him.
The police depart-
ment will not tolerate
such conduct, and such
conduct will be dealt
with as swiftly as the law
allows. Florida Statute
112, Police Officers
Rights, requires the
agencies to follow cer-
tain guidelines in inves-
tigating complaints
against officers, where
the complaint could lead
to termination. Some-
times this process may
be lengthy, however fail-
ure to follow the guide-
lines outlined in FS 112,

On July 25, starting
at 11 a.m., there will be a
fish fry to kick off an af-
ternoon with local and

sues important to them
and the community. The
event will be held at
Haffye Hayes Park in
Greenville, which is lo- Renetta Parrish
cated at the intersection of US 90 and State Road 221.
Renetta Parrish, county commissioner for Dis-
trict 3, that includes Greenville, is sponsoring the
town hall meeting. State Representative Leonard Be-
mbry, whose district covers that section of town as
well, will also be in attendance.
Parrish expressed her appreciation for the sup-
port she has received from residents throughout the
area, and offers the event in the hopes of better serv-
ing those in the community with needs and concerns.
"I want to thank all those who have supported the
community and me with their time and their prayers.
I hope everybody will come out and let us know
what's on their mind and hearts," Parrish said.

Neighborhood

Revitalization
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Following the bouncing ball through Lee recent-
ly regarding economic growth and revitalization
opportunities associated with building a wastewater
system has been challenging because several parts
must come together to get the $5.6 million project to
the next level. Although $4.2 million has already
been secured in a grant, concerns still center on the
remaining costs, as well as out-of-pocket expenses
that might be incurred by residents who don't qual-
ify for free hook-up and septic system crushing be-
cause their earnings are above the allowable income
range.
In order to address this issue, and in an effort to
eliminate these potential costs to the town and af-
fected residents, Susan Armstrong, president of Jor-
dan & Associates, a grant consulting firm out of
Jacksonville, met with the Citizens Advisory Task
Force (CATF) that was organized to discuss options
and alternatives. Among options considered would
be for the town to apply for Neighborhood Revital-
ization funding from the Community Development
Block Grant (CDBG) program sponsored by the De-
partment of Community Affairs (DCA).
Over the past several years, especially in Flori-
da, there has been growing health concern regard-

A Fragile

Stone


"He was a fragile stone, completely dependent
upon his Master and Friend, even as Jesus had in-
sisted on his dependence on the Father." Michael
Card, A Fragile Stone
Peter was a man of faith.
He walked on the water.
Peter was a man of passion.
He cut off the ear of a guard who came to arrest
Jesus.
Peter was a man of knowledge.
He proclaimed, "You are the Christ, the Son of
the living God."
Peter was a man of doubt. He took his eyes off
Jesus and sank into the water.
Peter was a man who was fragile. He denied
Christ three times after He was arrested.
How many times have we walked on the water
and felt great about our lives, our spiritual experi-
ences, our health?
How many times have we passionately stood by
a friend or stood on a principle?
How many times have we proclaimed that we
know Jesus as our Lord and Savior?
How many times have we doubted that God will
meet our needs?
How many times have we been fragile?
I have felt as if I have been thrown to the floor
and shattered, time after time, but the Potter reach-
es down, throws away the shards from the vessel and
begins making me knew again.
Our God is strong and mighty He is the Potter
and He knows my name.

Our Future?


Which Way?
Sir:
July 4th! Our day of a Declaration of Indepen-
dence.
That Declaration puts legs to the October 21, 1774
"Address to the People of Great Britain," in which the
Deputies for each Colony, meeting in Philadelphia,
proclaimed that they would not be the "Hewers of
wood and drawers of water," for anyone. (Journals of
the Continental Congress, 1774-1789, Library of Con-
gress Edition, 1904, Vol. 1, page 89).
That they would not suffer the supplecants role of
the debtor: "hewers of wood and drawers of water," as
set forth in Joshua 9:21.
For a long time, the one thing we always saw hov-
ering-was a crisis. And, now even a blind man can see
that we are on that slippery slope.
To put it bluntly, the fiscal policy of these United
States is unsustainable. Debt is ballooning faster than
gross domestic product. The recent Congressional
Budget Office report estimates that from 2008 to 2019,
the publicly held long-term debt will reach 82% of
G.D.P
This huge mass of debt is a tsunami stifling both
economic growth, and our standard of living.
In Federalist #29, Alexander Hamilton worried
about the budget. He said federal expenses could even-
tually equal the annual taxes of the States. That to
"abridge the mass of labor and industry to so consid-
erable an extent, would be unwise...because it would
not long be endured."
Hamilton, and our forefathers, could hardly re-
spect us if they saw us now.
May our generation boldly act and stop this rush
to the poor house.
Respectfully,
Nelson A. Pryor
Lee, Florida






Trisha Flanagan, Winthrop, Mass., waited anx-
iously in a parking lot with other families, all ea-
gerly anticipating first meetings with new family
members. And then the waiting was over. A truck
with an Indiana license
plate pulled into the park-, *
ing lot. This was it! The *
doors opened. Inside, a
bunch of Labrador retriev- *
ers stirred, some fright-
ened, some eager to get out,
all from Indiana, all for- 1
merly homeless, now on
the brink of finding their
forever homes. The adop-
tion link for the new fami- *
lies was Petfinder.com,
which lists over 200,000 *
homeless pets at any given
time. The pet-parents-to-be *
had applied and been ap-
proved for adoption. This
meeting was the final step.
Flanagan's pup was
eight weeks old and part of a litter found outdoors
in the cold with its mom, a stray. Fortunately, they
were rescued by Adopt a Lab, a group of volunteers
who had posted the dogs on Petfinder and then,
when adoptions had been finalized, arranged for the
transport east.
Flanagan cuddled her new pup, now named
Tessie, and knew this little girl was a perfect fit for


Thank You
We want to tell you "Thank you,"
But it doesn't seem enough.
Words don't seem sufficient
At a time that is so tough.
Please know we have deep feelings
About your generous acts.
We really appreciate you all.
You're special, and that's a fact!
We would like to take this time to express our
sincere thanks and appreciation, for food, prayers,
donations, cards, phone calls and visits. Your kind-
ness, like our son, will always be remembered.
Please continue to keep us in your thoughts
and prayers for the days that lie ahead.

the family, and it proved true. Even the other fami-
ly dogs welcomed Tessie.
"She joined Sailor and Sweet Pea in agility
training," Flanagan says, "and in April 2009 made


44.


her debut at her very
first trial with an ex-
cellent showing."
But that was just
the beginning. At her
second trial, she quali-
fied in 10 of her 10
tests and took home
her first title, a Perfect
Weekend ribbon. She
also earned more
points than any other
dog entered in the
whole trial.
"Tessie's breed is
listed as All Ameri-
can," Flanagan says,
"which exactly cap-
tures her potpourri
heritage. When people


ask me what breed I think she is, I say, 'Probably
every breed!'"
Flanagan refers to her as a "furry little sun-
beam." For Tessie the sun shown most brightly
when she came out of that truck and found her new
family.

What Did You Call Me?


By Karlen Evins
I was past exhaustion; past
frustration. But when they
changed the time AND the gate
for a third time, it was starting to
wear. When I returned from ask-
ing the clueless agent how it
would be nice if we could keep
things in the same terminal, my
friend laughed.
"I had no idea you were such
the little spitfire."
I felt certain it wasn't a com-
pliment. But I couldn't say for
sure.
Not to be confused with the
World War II fighter plane by the
same name, spitfire is not an un-
familiar label for women in the
South. In essence, it's a eu-
phemism (big word meaning you
go polite when you'd much prefer
to use the "b" word... Our South-
ern equivalent of "Bless his
heart" spoken just before we say
what we really think.)
But try to find the origin on
this one, and you'll have to dig.
In case you aren't familiar,
the word refers to one with a
feisty, fiery, spunky spirit, most
often a female. (Personally, I pre-
fer to call it "passionate con-


cern," but I don't get to decide
these things.)
One source traces the
word to Elizabethan
roots, crediting its source
as one, Lord Spitfire,
(but since Lord Spitfire ,
is not a woman, I ques-
tion the accuracy of
this, thus we move on.)
Digging deeper we
find that the word was
first used in the 1600s,
no doubt from some-
one (I'm guessing a
woman) whose feisty
spirit made her forever
synonymous with one
who spits fire from her
mouth when she
needs to get some-
thing done.
I was told my
great-grandmoth-
er was a spitfire.
I'm thinking this
may be genetic.
But what-
ever the true
story, I prefer
the definition
of "a person

Take Control If You

Face a Job Loss
With the current economy, many businesses have
been forced to downsize or close; employees may find
themselves without a job. It may have happened to you
or someone you know. Your first reaction may be to pan-
ic; there is a sense of loss and lack of control over your
circumstances. When you are without a paycheck, how-
ever, it's time to take charge of your financial affairs and
stay in control of your life. If it's a job loss you are facing,
Extension Specialist offer a few guidelines to help you get
organized.
1. Talk to your family about the situation. Let fami-
ly members know what decisions must be made. Talking
with each other helps the family share concerns. If they
understand what choices are available and what actions
are necessary, they will be more willing to help. Don't for-
get to listen to what other family members are saying
and feeling. Remember, your whole family probably is
upset. But each member can help the family make it
through these rough times.
2. File for unemployment benefits. Take your social
security card and go to the unemployment office or loca-
tion nearest your home as soon as possible. They will
help you file your claim.
3. Evaluate the ways your family uses money Many
times people buy things, not because they need the tings,
but because the want to spend money Now is the time to
tighten the purse strings and eliminate needless spend-
ing and abandon self-defeating spending habits. One of
the most difficult things about being unemployed is to re-
alize you cannot spend the way you did before. Pretend-
ing to yourself and to others that nothing has changed
will not make things easier. Spending less is a must. Talk
about what your family really needs and what they
would like to have. Put off buying what you would like to
have but do not need now.
All fixed expenses, such as rent or mortgage pay-
ments, installment payments, insurance premiums, and
other payments due on a specific date must by paid. Cut-
ting out waste and unnecessary purchases can reduce
other expenses, such as for food, clothing and recreation.
4. Take a financial inventory Look at what your
family now owns. A few minutes spent calculating your
family's net worth just might boost your spirits. Add up
the total value of all your belongings and subtract from
that total the amount you owe. Remember to figure the
value of everything at today's market prices, not the
price you paid for it. In other words, how much could you
sell it for?
5. Find ways to cut corners. To do this, you must
know exactly how much money you have coming in and
going out each month. Use all your check stubs and re-
ceipts to list your fixed expenses (housing, insurance pre-
miums, taxes, installment payment and other debts).
Then estimate what you spend on food, clothes, school,
gifts and other expenses. You may find that you don't
have a clear picture of where the money is going. If that
is the case, try the following plan:
Cut down on your spending.
Make a list before going shopping and weigh the
importance of each item before buying.
Write down everything you spend money on for two
to four weeks.
Reduce the number of shopping trips you make.
Plan ahead for big bills, such as insurance pay-
ments.
Agree with your family that every purchase over a
certain amount will be brought to the family for discus-


sion before buying.
All of these guidelines
will help to keep your focused
and moving ahead during a
period of unemployment.

office.

Churchill Never

Gave In, And We

Must Not Either
By Shaunna Howat
Centuries ago a young ruler, under siege by his
enemies, mourned aloud at the state of war in his
land: "...the wicked bend the bow; they make ready
their arrow upon the string to shoot in darkness at the
upright in heart. If thefoundations are destroyed, what
can the righteous do?" (Psalm 11:2-3)
One might agree that in the centuries since King
David urged his men to continue fighting against an
intractable enemy, wars have never truly ended. And
in the last century that has become even clearer.
Over 60 years ago Winston Churchill stood before
his alma mater, Harrow School. War raged in Europe;
darkness was closing in. The United States had not en-
tered the war yet. It was October of 1941 and England
stood virtually alone against Hitler.
Churchill listened to the schoolboys sing a tribute
to him; then he addressed them. He spoke those words
for which he is most remembered: "...never give in,
never give in, never, never, never, never-in nothing,
great or small, large or petty-never give in except to
convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to
force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming
might of the enemy."
Today America must never give in, never, never,
never. The forces that attacked on September 11 still
work to defeat freedom around the world. The same
tyrannical notions of world domination that Hitler
and Stalin possessed still permeate the twisted minds
of fanatical leaders today.
We easily get caught up in distractions-politics,
the economy, scandals involving athletes or pop
stars-but it's vital to stay focused on the most impor-
tant issue facing this world. An evil, murderous mob
is bent on destroying freedom. It is not about oil or
about imperialism; it's about fighting a worldwide,
radical movement whose goal is complete domination
or death. That is the fact that we cannot forget.
When Churchill stood before embattled London-
ers who were daily bombed by Germans, he did not
propose to negotiate. He stood firmly, crying out
against the enemy, shaking his fist: "We will have no
truce or parley with you, or the grisly gang who work
your wicked will. You do your worst and we will do
our best."
His point was that when the world gets darker,
people must lift their chins to face the unrelenting
evil, shake their fists and storm against it. The same
must be said today. We watch murderous mobs tearing
apart Americans in the streets of Iraq. We learn of
the beheading of an American citizen in Iraq. We
hear of the arrest of terrorists, who plot to unleash vi-
olence in cities around the world, and we cringe in
sympathy and rage when bombs rip apart lives.
We war against enemies who prefer murder to co-
operation. And just because they have not struck on
American soil in a while does not mean they are feel-
ing friendly toward us. Churchill talked to his fellow
Londoners about that during a lull in the daily bomb-
ings in July of 1941:
"All engaged in our defense forces must prepare
themselves for further heavy assaults. Your organiza-
tion, your vigilance, your devotion to duty, your zeal
for the cause must be raised to the highest intensity
"We do not expect to hit without being hit back,
and we intend with every week that passes to hit hard-
er. Prepare yourselves, then, my friends and com-
rades, for this renewal of your exertions. We shall
never turn from our purpose, however sombre the
road, however grievous the cost, because we know
that out of this time of trial and tribulation will be
born a new freedom and glory for all mankind."
Churchill's vision must be the same as ours. We
must remember who we are fighting, and why, and
what is at stake. It is so easy to forget, when we are so
comfortable here in this country But we must re-
member; we must never forget, never, never, never.

The '%floon
Men -and women- have always had a fascination
with the moon, a fascination that changed consider-
ably when man first stepped on what Buzz Aldrin in
his new book dubbed as a "Magnificent Desolation."
That first moonwalk-long before the one made famous
by Michael Jackson-took some of the romance and
wonder from our centuries old fascination. We just
knew there was a man in the moon- we could see him.
And has there ever been a courting couple who sat out-
side on a moonlit night, with arms entwined, who has-
n't felt their romance enhanced by that shining silver
orb in the sky? To find out that the moon is only like a
planet, a desolate one at that, full of craters, and rocks
and lifeless had to affect us the same way that a child
feels when he finds out there is no Santa Claus. So
man now sets his sights on Mars, the mysterious red
planet with the violent name.
But there is still -and always will be-that fascina-
tion as proven by the media coverage on this 40th an-
niversary. We remember our beloved Walter Cronkite
and the look on his face as he ended his broadcast that
night with "Hoo, boy!" We remember that in that mag-
nificent desolation there is a "Sea of Tranquility"
near where the Eagle landed itself a symbol of Amer-
ica who had men of vision and ingenuity and the pow-
er behind that to accomplish such a feat.
On July 20,2009, the Florida Times-Union filled
pages with" Readers Share their Moon Memories"
and some spoke of being in foreign countries and be-
ing invited to join in the families and friends grouped
around the television as the whole world still sat mes-
merized after all these years.
America has a very wonderful-and colorful past-
filled with mostly great leaders. But I fear for the fu-
ture-there seems to be much profligacy and greed for
power. But I still sit on the deck and watch that lovely
orb rise above the treetops and brighten the night sky
And I still see the Man in the Moon-the man who has
been relegated to the attic of the past.

ing septic systems, particularly older systems. Reports
show that owners rarely keep up the suggested main-
tenance, and for those living in areas prone to flooding,
the periodic health hazard can be severe, as was the
case throughout the Lee area earlier this year.
The general local consensus supports growth and
economic opportunity, although several outspoken
residents remain justifiably insistent that all features
of the funding process including restrictions, limi-
tations, enforcement and monthly expenses be fully
explained and understood. The CATF unanimously
agreed that the council should pursue all opportuni-
ties to offset expenses, also agreeing that Neighbor-
hood Revitalization is a priority Beyond the health
benefits, however, the passion for the project is cen-
tered on the creation of jobs and a desirable level of
growth to sustain future generations.

'As a result of this investigation, I have learned
of this trend called 'sexting" among teens and young
adults where images, some nude and some depicting
sexual acts, are being sent through text messages,"
said MPD Chief Rick Davis. "These images are for-
warded to other people and eventually are posted on
websites. Once on the web, they are in the public do-
main and virtually impossible to remove and may be

Scourage all parents of
teens to review your chil-

According to the Madison County Sheriff's Office, while
conducting the enforcement action, Corporal Maurice de-
tected numerous indicators of criminal activity
Corporal Maurice deployed his K-9 partner, "LEO," to
do a free air sniff of the vehicle. During the sniff, "LEO"
Gave a positive indication to the odor of an illegal narcotic.
Corporal Maurice conducted a probable cause search
of the vehicle. During the search Corporal Maurice locat-
ed evidence of a hidden compartment. Sergeant David
Harper of the Sheriff's Office Drug Task Force was con-
tacted and responded to the scene.
The vehicle was relocated to the Madison County
Jail where two electronically controlled false compart-
ments were located. Once the compartments
were accessed, 10 ounces of powder cocaine and a kilo-
gram of cutting agent were located.
Three of the occupants were arrested and charged
with trafficking cocaine and possession of drug parapher-
nalia.
The vehicle was seized for forfeiture per Florida Stat-
ues.
Corporal Maurice was assisted at the scene by
Sergeant Dennis Pitts, Deputy Joey Knight, and Reserve
Deputy Mike Fairley

FHSAA

system, the FHSAA decided with a 9-6 vote to cut junior
varsity games back by 40 percent, and cut varsity
games back 20 percent, except for football, in the 2009-
10 school year. The purpose of the cutbacks across the
state was to help cut the school's traveling expenses to
and from games, electricity, and other expenses in-
volved in the sports programs.
In order to cut back expenses, the FHSAA was also
cutting back the futures of the student athletes. The
less games the students are given to play, the less expe-
rience they gain and they have a smaller chance of per-
forming before college scouts. And that's exactly what
the parents of these athletes realized.
What forced the FHSAA to recall their decision
was a lawsuit filed by six parents of female athletes,
who are known as the Florida Parents for Athletic Eq-
uity This group of parents believed that the FHSAA vi-
olated Title IX, which is a federal law that prohibits
schools to show discrimination, and in this case, gen-
der. They stated that the policy discriminated more on
girls' sports than male sports.
Starting the 2009-10 school season, the sports pro-
grams will resume to a normal schedule.

a massive reduction in the
state waste grant forced the
closure of the collection
sites on Sundays starting
July 5. The removal of the
unsightly collection of
trash bins is still a welcome
improvement, however.
In other waste news,
the board voted to post an
advertisement for applica-
tions to select the next par-
ticipant in the "Recycle 4
Charity" program. Last
year's program partner,
Needy Families of Madi-
son, raised over $2,000 for
their Christmas gift project
run by Christy Grass and
Judy Dean, both of whom
expressed their apprecia-
tion for the support they re-
ceived from the board and
waste personnel.
Juan Botino, director
of Emergency Medical Ser-
vices, addressed the board
briefly when they resumed


discussion regarding the
urgently needed move of
the EMS facility following
the discovery of toxic mold
in their very rundown
building. All agreed the
matter is top priority but
several commissioners
were concerned that money
not be spent on appraisers
and architects without a
high degree of certainty
that all proposed sites have
been reviewed to determine
the most likely fit. Botino
said 60-90 days for the re-
view was manageable.
Discussion to fill the
vacancy at Emergency
Management created from
the retirement of Director
Jim Stanley and the promo-
tion of Vicki Brown also
continued, although no fi-
nal action was taken. Based
on Brown's heavy work-
load, especially with the
proposed expanded role of

the department to support
volunteer firefighters, the
board agreed that a special
meeting was justified to
speed along the process,
which would be held during
an upcoming special budget
meeting already scheduled.
Additional business in-
cluded budgeting for the li-
brary system, resurfacing
of SR 14 south of I-10 to the
Taylor County line, and ap-
proval of the continuing
contracts for architectural
services with Clemons,
Rutherford & Associates
and MLD Architects. Re-
garding the latter decision,
the board requested CRA
present an hourly rate pro-
posal to accompany their
cost-plus option.
The BOCC meets the
first and third Wednesdays
of each month, with special
meetings as determined,
and the public is urged to at-
tend.

Auci la Aegiona[ Landfill Hosts Land Debris Workshop


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Aucilla Regional
Landfill, which is located
on State Road 221 just
outside Greenville,
serves four counties:
Madison, Jefferson, Tay-
lor and Dixie. It disposes
of different "classes" of
trash for a fee, including
wood and yard waste.
Historically, each
county has handled a
large portion of wood
waste through open
burns in cooperation
with local forestry agen-
cies. There have been pe-
riodic concerns about
accidentally spreading
these fires, but it remains
the least expensive dis-
posal method.
In consideration of
these fire-handling con-
cerns, and also in re-
sponse to increased
compliance concerns
with the Department of


l -.a xy K. ..- _ir- .y --,>.. :, s?-.-a
(Photo from website)
Purchase of a land-clearing debris incinerator
like the one seen here is being considered by Aucil-


la Regional Landfill.
Environmental Protec-
tion, county officials met
in the landfill workshop
on August 9 to discuss fu-
ture options. Moderated
by Frank Darabi, engi-
neer and consultant for
the landfill, representa-
tives from each county
discussed his or her cur-
rent disposal methods
and respective plans to


address the increased
regulatory require-
ments.
County Coordinator
Allen Cherry, Waste and
Recycling Coordinator
Jerome Wyche, and City
of Madison Manager
Harold Emrich repre-
sented Madison County
After each county re-
viewed alternatives,


Darabi introduced the
option of purchasing an
"Air Curtain Destructor,"
or comparable land de-
bris incinerator, to be
housed centrally at the
landfill.
Designed to inciner-
ate combustible waste
where open burning is
prohibited, the equip-
ment is, according to lit-
erature Darabi
distributed, the "most
cost effective method of
eliminating land-clear-
ing debris. It was further
noted that the equipment
is portable, although reg-
ulations now require a
specialized foundation
for the machine.
Madison County cur-
rently owns this type of
incinerator but is unable
to use it until a suitable
foundation can be afford-
ably constructed. When
this reporter asked Dara-
bi if the landfill could


purchase the Madison
County machine at a
competitive price to help
both causes, he said that
was an option.
Financial decisions
regarding waste disposal
and landfill use incorpo-
rate several factors: cost
of labor, cost of equip-
ment, transportation
costs, landfill fees, liabili-
ty insurance and regula-
tors, among others.
These numbers will de-
termine, for instance
whether it's worth the
cost of a truck, driver
and fuel, and so on, to
participate, or if it's bet-
ter to pursue local alter-
natives, including
private partners, like
stump grinders.
Many are surprised
DEP is involved in land
debris disposal, consid-
ering how long open
burns have been a regu-
lar feature of land clear-


ing. Unfortunately, as re-
strictions rise and more
fees introduced, abuse
also increases. It was not-
ed that the City of Madi-
son has seen an increase
in commercial wood
waste as surrounding ar-
eas clamp down, and the
county has seen abuse re-
lated to the newly intro-
duced size limits for yard
waste.
In the end, all coun-
ties agreed that solutions
should be considered, al-
though each also main-
tain they will ride it out
as long as possible, be-
cause none of them want
to increase assessments
in their respective dis-
tricts, which is some-
thing Darabi noted
would be inevitable in or-
der to comply with code.

The Madison team rallied back
on Friday, taking their next game
against Varina, Va., winning 13-3.


After that, they beat Union County,
Va., by a score of 6-3.
On Saturday, the girls got re-
venge against Altamonte Springs,
the team that knocked them out of
the Florida state tournament by a
score of 17-7. Coach Rusty Smith got
the girls white armbands and wrote
the score on them. The girls wore the
armbands during the game against


Altamonte Springs and won 11-7.
In a game described as a "gut-

Can you ever be...




too prepared?


V. I. W ] 1I 1 / : 1 I1 m [OL,

SO WHY RISK IT?
When it comes to natural and man-made
emergencies, like fires and other threats, you
can never be more prepared. Take this oppor-
tunity during National Preparedness Month to
find out what emergencies could strike your
home and plan ahead for them now.

Here are five tips:

Prepare a supply kit and design a plan of
action for every kind of emergency that could
occur in the area where you live.

Create two escape routes for every family
member in your home in the event of a fire.

Find a person outside of your area that every-
one can contact after an emergency has
occurred.

Identify an area where everyone should meet
after an emergency has occurred.

Conduct drills and practice your emergency
plans of action often.

Happenings At



Madison First




, k Baptist Church


By Kristin Finney
"He is like a tree planted by
streams of water which yields its fruit
in season and whose leaf does not with-
er Whatever he does prospers. Psalm
1:3."
This Sunday morning began with
a beautiful message through song by
Dan Campbell, the piece was entitled
"Precious Lord." This was followed
by Bill Brown giving the offertory
prayer. The worship choir then sang a
beautiful song called "Jesus is Com-
ing Soon." Pastor Ferrell preached
from 2 Kings 11 and 12 on how God
provides for us. Everything that we
have is thanks to His gracious mercy
and love. Sunday night was also our
quarterly business meeting.
The following events will be hap-
pening for Madison First Baptist in
the next month: July 25 there will be
a Children's Ministry Conference
from 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Our church
will also be hosting "Church Work-


days" August 1, 8, and 15. On August
13 at 2 p.m. at Lee First Baptist, there
will be a Senior Adult Ice Cream So-
cial. August 28-29, there will be a Beth
Moore Living Proof live simulcast.
We would like to invite you to join
us for our services! Our worship
schedule is as follows: Sunday school
10-11 a.m. Sunday Morning Worship
11:00 a.m.-12:00 noon. Sunday Evening
Worship 6-7 p.m., followed by youth
dinner and fellowship until 8 .m.
Wednesday evening services begin at
6 p.m. for both the adults and youth
and lasts until 8 p.m.
Our prayers this week are extend-
ed to the upcoming school year, stu-
dents and staff included. May God
bless our school system in Madison
and keep each child's faith strong. Al-
low the staff to teach in a Christly
manor and be a shining light of God's
love for us.
God Bless!

Luke S:32 (KJx)

What kind of company do you keep? As

everyone we cross paths with just as Jesus did.
He surrounded Himself with believers
and non-believers, and in doing so, impacted the
whole world and brought the lost to Him.

By Gregory J. Rummo
If you viewed the
photos on the Internet of
any of the victims be-
headed by al-Qaeda or
Tawhid wa al-Jihad
(Unification and Holy
War), you know how dis-
turbing they are. And if
you are like me, then
your first thoughts after
overcoming the revul-
sion are ones of pay-
back.
Wouldn't it be fit-
ting, you think to your-
self, to see several
American GIs drag a
kicking and screaming
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi
into a street in the mid-
dle of Fallujah and, with
the cameras rolling, me-
thodically cut off
his head. Maybe f
play soccer with it
for a few minutes
after the blood
stops spurting out
on the dry, dusty
ground. That
would play well on
Al Jazeera. It
might even make
the "Top 10 Plays
of the Day" on
ESPN Sports Cen-
ter.
Maybe then
the terrorists
would finally get
the message:
"They send one of
yours to the
morgue, you send
two of theirs..." as
Malone, the street-
hardened cop played by
Sean Connery in the
movie "The Untouch-
ables" explains to the
naive Elliott Ness,
played by Kevin Costner.
"But you would be
wrong."
There is an un-
bridgeable, ideological
chasm between justice
and revenge. Although
in this case the two may
appear to be coincident,
they are in fact not.
Americans must main-
tain their composure in
the face of this horrific
evil and hold on to the
moral high ground if we
are to ultimately prevail
in the war against ter-
rorism.
The U.S. has waged
a war in Iraq against de-
fined military targets
and those people who
identify themselves as
enemy combatants.
Whether you agree that
our involvement is justi-
fied is immaterial to this
argument. The point is;


our methods of warfare
constitute a world of dif-
ference from hooded ter-
rorists torturing and
murdering innocent
contractors, journalists
or other non-combat-
ants.
Over 200 years ago,
we fled from tyranny
and began an experi-
ment in self-government
based on the concept of
"liberty and justice for
all." Our system of laws,
based on the intrinsic
worth of every individ-
ual was originally ex-
pressed by these words:
"All men are created
equal."
In 1797, when Amer-
ica's second president,


John Adams, was inau-
gurated, we proved to
the world that for the
first time in human his-
tory, political power
could be handed over
from one bloodline to
another without blood-
shed.
But such noble prin-
ciples did not simply
materialize out of thin
air. Our nation has,
since its inception, been
guided by an overarch-
ing, Divine Authority.
The evolution of our
laws and institutions
can be traced all the way
back to the Bible.
America is, in fact, a
Christian nation. It
doesn't matter if you are
an evangelical protes-
tant or an avowed athe-
ist. Every American,
regardless of his faith
(or a complete lack
thereof) has benefited
from a society imbued
with the divinely in-
spired qualities of mer-
cy, tolerance, justice,


equity and human dig-
nity
Samuel P. Hunting-
ton, who is currently
the Albert J. Weather-
head III University Pro-
fessor at Harvard,
argued this point per-
suasively on the opinion
pages of the June 16
Wall Street Journal.
"Americans have al-
ways been extremely re-
ligious and
overwhelmingly Christ-
ian," Huntington ex-
plained. "The
17th-century settlers
founded their communi-
ties in America in large
part for religious rea-
sons. Eighteenth-centu-
ry Americans saw their
Revolution in reli-
gious and largely
biblical terms...
[The] framers [of
the Constitution]
firmly believed
that the republi-
can government
they were creating
could last only if
it was rooted in
morality and reli-
gion.
"'A Republic
can only be sup-
ported by pure re-
ligion or austere
morals,' John
Adams said. Wash-
ington agreed:
'Reason and expe-
rience both forbid
us to expect that
national morality
can prevail in exclusion
of religious principles.'
Fifty years after the
Constitution was adopt-
ed, Tocqueville report-
ed that all Americans
held religion 'to be in-
dispensable to the
maintenance of repub-
lican institutions.'"
To abandon these
noble principles at a
time when there is a
growing clamor for re-
venge is wrong. Ameri-
cans must resist the
urge to give in to their
baser instincts. It is im-
possible to embrace bar-
barism in the name of
justice.
Let the words of the
apostle Paul, written to
the church in Rome dur-
ing a time when un-
speakable atrocities
were being foisted upon
Christians, serve as an
appropriate reminder
to us all: "Do not be
overcome with evil.
Overcome evil with
good."

Madison Enterprise-Recorder 11A


the


5taelda !3ecunme


By Alfa Hunt
Enterprise-Recorder
The territory known
as Florida would be ad-
mitted into the United
States in 1845 after years
of preparation. Many
people didn't want Flori-
da to become a state
while others greatly en-
couraged it.
The idea of state-
hood began over a
decade before the admis-
sion was official. The
idea came upon people
in the early 1830s when
masses of future resi-
dents began flocking to
the area. By 1840, Madi-
son County was brag-
ging about the fact that
the area housed a popu-
lation of 2,644 people:
1,442 whites and 1,202
slaves. It was only ten
years earlier that only
522 people lived in the
area. The influx of resi-
dents also brought more
demands for statehood.
Middle Florida had
grown much more rapid-
ly than the east and west
regions of Florida.
According to Histo-
rian Elizabeth Sims,
people throughout Mid-
dle Florida, including
those living in Madison
County, were highly in-
terested in statehood.
This was mainly be-
cause of the activity in
Congress, which was
aimed towards abolish-
ing slavery in all of the
territories.
The counties in the
East and West regions of
Florida abhorred the
idea because they be-
lieved that admission


into the Union would
raise their taxes. Their
reasoning for coming to
this conclusion was be-
cause when Florida be-
came a state, services
were provided by the
state instead of the Fed-
eral government. It was
mainly East Floridians
who felt that the territo-
rial government was
cheaper. Some Western
Floridians believed it
would be better to join
Alabama and many of
those living in Alabama
agreed with this.
East Floridians are
said to have eagerly
urged West Florida to
join Alabama. This was
mainly due to the fact
that should West Florida
join Alabama and Flori-
da be accepted into the
Union, the state capital
would be moved east-
ward, to a more central
location.
Another reason why
the issue of Florida be-
coming a state was de-
layed from the 1830s to
1845 was the issue of
slavery. People in Flori-
da were worried about
the effect joining the
Union would have on
their economic depen-
dency on slaves. North-
ern abolitionists were
becoming more and
more vocal about their
opinions and local resi-
dents were nervous
about the effect these
people would have on
their way of life.
Ever since the Mis-
souri Compromise of
1819-1821, it had been a
tactic of the government


to admit a slave state
along with a free state in
order to maintain bal-


ance. With this policy
guiding Congress, it was
very unlikely that Flori-
da had any chance of be-
ing admitted to the
Union without a free
state to be admitted at
the same time. Iowa was
the most likely territory
at the time, but the peo-
ple who had settled there
were not as eager for
statehood as the people
in Florida were.
Without any reflec-


tions on these matters,
residents of Middle
Florida demanded that a
constitutional conven-
tion would be a neces-
sary step towards
statehood. After some
debate on the conven-
tion's location, it was set
in a newly established
town west of
Apalachicola called St.
Joseph. John C. McGe-
hee represented Madi-
son County at this
convention. Its purpose
was to draw up a state
constitution. This con-
stitution would be adopt-
ed in January 1839.
After the new state
constitution was adopt-
ed, the territorial dele-
gate, David Levy,
Petitioned for the admis-
sion of Florida as a state
at every session of Con-
gress. The negotiations


a State


in Congress were diffi-
cult and drawn out.
Finally, an admis-
sion bill was written and
allowed Florida to enter
the Union along with
Iowa to maintain the bal-
ance of free and slave
states in Congress.
When the bill passed
through Congress, elec-
tions were held to ap-
point state officers and a
member of Congress. In
response, the Democrat-
ic Party held a conven-
tion at the Madison
County courthouse in
April 1845. Jefferson
County resident, Gener-
al William Bailey was all
too happy to accept nom-
ination for governor of
the new state. He was
even praised by the
Whig party in their
newspaper titled, Star of
Florida.


Even though many
people were sure that
Bailey would win due to

MOTIVATED SELLERS OFTEN KEY TO REAL ESTATE INVESTORS


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Investing in real es-
tate in this challenging
market requires finding
every advantage, and a
motivated seller is likely
crucial to the deal. This
is especially the case if
just starting out. Deal-
ing with motivated sell-
ers makes the process go
faster as well, which
means cash in the pock-
et sooner.
Motivated sellers
are basically people who
must sell their homes.
Financial distress is the
common scenario, but
not always. Maybe be-
hind on payments or fac-
ing foreclosure, others
are facing bankruptcy or


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Fed remains
committed to buying up
mortgage-backed securi-
ties which is keeping in-
terest rates low, not to
mention the demand for
loans has yet not re-
sumed. Depending upon
your current interest
rate, a fifteen-year fixed
under five (5) percent
may still be attractive. If
planning to stay in the
home at least three (3)
years or more, consider
the numbers to see what
a refinance could do to
benefit your current fi-
nancial position.
Here are a few tips to
help make an intelligent
and informed decision
about whether or not to
refinance.
(1) Consider the fees -
The biggest scam is often


medical Dills. Divorce is
another. Positive rea-
sons can also create the
need for a quick sale, as
from sudden job reloca-
tion or getting married.
Whatever the rea-
son, real estate advisors
urge purchasers not to
think of it as taking ad-
vantage of these home-
owners. On the contrary,
many times it's doing
the seller a big favor.


the legal one. Take a look
at all fees to refinance
and be sure to include
everything paid, whether
paid up front or rolled
into the loan. The Inter-
net is filled with free pro-
grams to compare
mortgage terms.
(2) Consider the
Term Be aware that
every time a mortgage is
refinanced, the loan
amortization schedule
starts over with the
bank. These amortiza-
tion schedules work in
the bank's favor. Almost
the entire payment goes
to interest at the begin-
ning of the loan. For ex-
ample, If you have a
$200,000 mortgage at
4.5%, the principle and
interest payment is
$1013.37 per month on a
thirty year fixed loan.
Out of that amount,


Here are a few tips
offered by an industry
specialist:
1. Build a website,
or have one built for you,
announcing that you
buy houses. Not a
techie? Then have some-
one build it or purchase
a simple template from
any Internet Service
Providers or other Inter-
net companies. They are
very inexpensive.


$750 goes to interest and
$263.37 goes to principle.
Instead of going
back to the 30 year fixed
loan, consider doing a 25
or 20-year term. A pay-
ment on a 25-year term is
only $1111.66, howev-
er $361.16 each month is
going to principle and
there is an actual savings
of $60,802.20 over the life
of the loan in additional
interest costs. Of course,
that's is current and fu-
ture dollars, but the
point is simply that
shorter terms incur less
interest that justifies the
extra monthly costs. Not
bad for only $100 differ-
ence in payment.
(3) Watch Your Cred-
it Score. In the past,
whether you had a 620
credit score or a 700 cred-
it score, your rate for a
conventional loan was


2. Run classified ads
in local newspapers.
Place classified in
dailies, weeklies, or even
free newspapers. Hint:
advertorials (looks like
editorial copy; reads like
an ad; purports to edu-
cate but is really an ad)
3. Set up bandit
signs, those little signs
on stakes and phone
poles, announcing that
you buy houses for cash,
fast. Warning: Don't get
carried away creating
these until you find out
they are legal in your
area. If they are not, you
can always place them
after 5 p.m. Friday
evening through Sunday
evening, because the
sign police are not out


about the same. In to-
day's restrictive credit
market, Fannie Mae has
added several risk lev-
els that will increase
your interest rate. The
difference in rate be-
tween a 620 score and 740
score can be as much as
three quarters of a point.
(4) Make Sure You
Know Your Appraised
Value Many people will
not be able to take advan-
tage of the current low
mortgage rates because
they owe more than their
home is worth. I recom-
mend you spend a little
time researching this be-
fore you get too excited
about refinanc-
ing. Foreclosed homes
sold at rock bottom
prices in your neighbor-
hood may dramatically
effect what your home
will appraise for.


and about then.
4. Put signs on your
car. You are now a
rolling billboard. You'd
be surprised how many
people will approach you
when you are parked
somewhere.
5. A bit more ex-
pensive, but take out a
Yellow Pages ad. Hint:
Use the advertorial ap-
proach to stand out from
competitors.
6. On line, go to
classified ad sites, espe-
cially free ones, like
www. Craigslist.org
7. Once up and run-
ning and can afford it,
going the direct mail
route can be quite prof-
itable. Mail to people
within a zip code (shot-


(5) Don't Get Greedy -
Have you ever lost out on
something because you
waited too long? Last
year, rates dipped to 5.25
percent for about 4
hours. After that, they
immediately jumped to
5.5 percent and a week
later, they were back up
to 5.75 percent. Don't get
emotional about trying
to find the absolute bot-
tom. Most likely, you
won't be lucky enough.
(6) Ask For Discount
Points Ask for a quote at
one and two discount
points as well as the tra-
ditional no discount
point quote. In the past,
you might pay one dis-
count point to get 0.25
percent better in rate. On
a $200,000 the difference
between a rate at 5 per-
cent or 5.25 percent is $31
per month. If it costs you


gun marketing) or get a
list of particular people,
such as those in foreclo-
sure (targeted market-
ing).
The bottom line is
don't sit around waiting
for deals to come to you,
go find them and/or do
things to get people to
call you. 90 percent of
sellers are not motivat-
ed, so be patient and be
willing to weed through
a lot of unmotivated sell-
ers before you get that
one that is ready to sell
the home at the price
that makes the deal
work.

Michael@greenepublishi
ng.com.


$2000 more upfront, it
will take you 64 months
or over five years to
break even.
In the current mort-
gage market, I have seen
as much as a 0.75 percent
difference rate for 1 dis-
count point. On a
$200,000 mortgage, the
difference between 5 per-
cent and 5.75 percent is
$94 per month. In this
case the break even is
only 21 months. After
that, you are money
ahead. Make sure you
request these options
from your mortgage
banker. Most Bankers are
not accustomed to provid-
ing you with this informa-
tion since in the past
discount points weren't
very attractive.

TALLAHASSEE
The Department of
Business and Profes-
sional Regulation re-
minds real estate
professionals that it is
time to renew licenses.
The renewal period is
open now through Sept.
30 and includes licensed

sales associates, bro-
kers, schools, real estate
and appraiser instruc-
tors, corporations and
limited liability compa-
nies. Individuals can re-
new their licenses by
visiting MyFloridaLi-
cense.com and clicking
the "Renew/Maintain

associates, and instruc-
tors must complete con-
tinuing education

tor whose initial license
has an expiration date of
less than 12 months from
the issuance date does
not have to complete
continuing education re-
quirements for the first
renewal cycle. If the ini-
tial license issuance date

months before the re-
newal period, the in-
structor must complete

FLORIDA FARIm BUREAU HOLDS ANlUAL CONFERENCE


Florida Farm Bu-
reau held their Annual
State Young Farmer and

Crystal River this past
weekend, and had near-

attendance. Madison
County Farm Bureau
was well represented at
the Annual Meeting
with Jeffrey and Liz
Hamrick, Jason and
Lisa Agner, and Willie
(Bobo) Agner all attend-
ing.
Perhaps the high-
light of this year's meet-
ing was a presentation
by Professor Emeritus
David Kolb from Vir-
ginia Tech. Dr. Kolb
talked in depth about fi-
nances down on the
farm, and where our na-

fully soon.
The meeting was or-
ganized by the Florida
Farm Bureau Leader-
ship Group of which
Madison's own Jeffery
Hamrick is the presi-
dent of the class. Ham-
rick was in charge of the
entire program, which
lasted for two days.
The Meeting also
had other speakers, and
another important set of
speakers were Florida
Farm Bureau Ag-Policy
Staff, who gave the
group an update on both
state and national is-
sues. There was much
discussion on the cur-
rent "Cap and Trade" is-
sues which recently
passed in the House of
Representatives in


Washington. The Senate
still has to take up this
issue. According to the
Farm Bureau Staff, if
this bill passes, the one
group that will be hurt
the most will be those
making a living in Agri-
culture.
According to Ham-
rick, this was perhaps
the best State Confer-
ence that has been held
in quite some time. The

UN) E ST/IiANJ) JNG SUNSC EERNS


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Sunscreens with
sun-protection factors
(SPF) of 100 or more may
not provide the guaran-
teed full protection one
would expect. Experts as-
sert that using sunscreen
with a high SPF is not an
excuse to stay out in the
sun longer, noting that
it's dangerous to rely on
numbers alone since SPF
is only part of the story
Current sunscreen
manufacturers are re-
quired only to label prod-
ucts for the amount of
UVB protection they pro-
vide. UVB is ultraviolet
(UV) light, which com-
monly causes sun tan-
ning and burns. The SPF
number does not make


clear if it also blocks
UVA, light that pene-
trates deeper into the
skin.
Both UVA and UVB
cause skin aging and can
lead to skin can-
cer. Newer products do
offer "broad spectrum"
protection with better
UVA blocking, but they
still remain less effective
compared to how they
block UVB. Add to this
the increasing SPF num-
bers advertised and the
public can be confused.
The Food and Drug
Administration (FDA)
has proposed a four-star
rating system to tell con-
sumers about the
amount of UVA protec-
tion in each prod-
uct. Additionally, the
