"I will also give him
a white stone with a new
name written on it,
known only to him who
receives it." Revelation
2:17
The person being
tried stood shuddering
as he awaited the ver-
dict. Was there nothing
he could do to be set
free?
Gloom and doom
shrouded his very be-
ing, making the-
courtroom feel
like a cold, ice,
covered grace.
He knew that the
grave
would
not
b e
coldi
for Ioni2
It would turn
from a frozen tun-
dra into a fiery
furnace and the
fire would burn
forever.
As he waited
for the judge to
make his deci-
sion, he knew that he
would be given the
black stone, which was
an indication of his
guilt. There would be no
vindication for what he
had done.
The criminal stood,
knowing there would be


no exoneration and that
his execution was immi-
nent.
"What if I threw
myself on the mercy of
the court?" he thought.
"What if I told the judge
how sorry I am for all
the crimes I have com-
mitted. I have sinned, o
Lord, be merciful to
me!"
With his head
bowed and tears in his
eyes, he suddenly felt
someone standing
in front of him.
Afraid to look up,
he waited for

judge
-t o0
drop
the black
stone of
guilt in the cup.
He heard the
stone hit the inside of
Sthe urn. Looking in
to his shock and dis-
belief, he saw a
white stone; a stone
that indicated
that he was not
guilty.
The criminal who
had been freed looked
up and saw the face of
Jesus Christ. He
reached and grabbed Je-
sus' nail-scarred hands.
Jesus had paid the
price so he could go free.

By Paul Niemann
The engineer was born in 1875 in the village of
Mattersdorf in what later became known as the
Czech Republic. He was an engineer despite having
very little formal schooling, as was common back
then.
He actually sneaked into night classes, and even-
tually became a very successful engineer I'm sure
there's a lesson here somewhere for the kids in the
audience.

Dad's grandfa-

The young engineer's father owned a plumbing
business, and Ferdinand was expected to take it over
when his father retired. Despite earning his plumber
apprenticeship, he avoided working in the family
business and was often trying to learn from electri-
cal experiments, which his father called "nonsense."
In one of his early jobs, he helped design an elec-
tric carriage car that set several national speed
records. The speed record at the time was just a little
over 35 miles an hour!
In 1902, a year before he got married, he served
as a driver for Archduke Francis Ferdinand. Yes,
that Archduke Francis Ferdinand, the one whose as-
sassination in 1914 triggered the start of World War
I, which was then known as "The Great War" be-
cause it was the only world war up to that point in
history Ferdinand was not driving the archduke's
car on that fateful day, however.
In 1906, Ferdinand went to work for Austro-
Daimler as its chief engineer. At the time, Austro-
Daimler was a unit of what is now Daimler-Chrysler.
For most of the time period between 1910 1920, the
company produced mainly war materials, yet Ferdi-
nand went on to become one of the greatest engi-
neers in automotive history
His car became known as the "people's car."

You Can Save

Money In

Tough Times
Although interest rates on savings account are
very low these days, it is still a good idea to have an
emergency fund set aside for unexpected expenses.
The challenge in these economic times is finding
money to save. Extension Specialists in family fi-
nance share some tried and tested strategies to in-
crease your savings. Try to adopt one or two of
these strategies so you will have money for unex-
pected repairs and expenses.
Pay yourself first! The best idea is to decide
to save a certain amount of your take home pay, and
set those funds aside before paying any other ex-
penses. Most financial planners encourage individ-
uals to save at least 10 percent of their income. If
you have not been in the habit of saving that much,
start with two percent or five percent and then ad-
just upward as you are able. Many people find that
they really notice no difference in their lifestyle
when they start such a plan.
Collect coins in a jar. Just saving the 25 cents
change from a 75 cent cup of will result in a yearly
savings of $65.00.
Bank your refunds. Instead of spending your
income tax refund and incentive check, use it to pay
down a high interest credit card bill or directly de-
posit it.
Continue paying a loan. When you finish
paying off a car loan, continue making that same
monthly installment payment, but to yourself. Put
that dollar amount into an investment that will earn
the highest possible rate of interest.
Break costly habits. Coffee, a doughnut and
the newspaper purchased every working day might
cost you $15 or more per week or $750 per year.
That daily snack and drink from the vending ma-
chines adds up too.
Bank a windfall. When you receive an un-
expected amount of money, the temptation might be
to spend it on something extra as a treat. Another
way to think about it is as an
investment in your future.
Its money you won't miss,
because you were not ex-
pecting it, or did not have it
as a part of your regular
monthly spending plan, so
it could easily be used to
increase your net
w orth.
S If you
follow these
S strategies
Sfor putting
Smone y
.. aside, the
next time
the car breaks down or the refriger-
ator needs a repair, you will be able to pay the un-
expected expense. Any time you can keep from
putting a bill on your credit card, you've saved
money. For more information on managing mon-
ey, contact the Madison County Extension Service.

Think About It!
From Adam learning at the feet of God and
strolling in perfect peace with Eve in the eventide of
Eden down through the years to man's spoon-fed ex-
istence today, have we progressed or regressed?
No great distinguished man or woman of hu-
manity's past had a computer, they could not surf
the Internet, could not learn from television, from
CDs and DVDs; why, they could not even twitter!
What a silly word-it takes a bird (brain) to tweet and
twitter! (But from birds, the sounds are beautiful).
They also could not take photos by camera phone
and they even had to walk everywhere! They had no
cars, buses, trains or planes nor even bicycles, much
less rockets to the moon.
Then how on earth did Nostradamas, DaVinci,
Euclid, Raphael, Wagner, Demosthenes, Marie
Curie, Michelangelo and all others of those past gen-
erations like them learn how to do all the great
things they managed to accomplish?
They didn't go straight home from school or
work and sit on their laziness while surfing the In-
ternet, watching TV, twittering and texting, mostly
about such inane things as "you wouldn't believe
what I did last night!" or" Did you hear the latest
about Mary (or Joe) -what a nerd!"
And older gossipers can't wait to pass on any-
thing they hear, especially the bad. That wonderful
invention, the telephone, keeps the airways so filled
with foolishness that it's a wonder that anything
worthwhile ever gets accomplished.
As William Greene often wrote, "Think about
it." And while you are, instead of bemoaning the
fact that life isn't fair and the whole world is against
you, ask yourself, "What have I ever done to help in
making this world a better place?" Life isn't fair and
the world is against those who aren't trying to make
it a better place!
Perhaps my major in college should have been
philosophy! I could have hung out my shingle as a
psychologist but had better sense.
It's summer with all its pleasures but also all its
pests so I go from serious to silly with this ditty-
Oh pesky fly, thy end is near
E'en tho, like me, you hold
life dear
Thy son of Satan,
soon with him you'll be
And ne'er again
b you'll pester me!

Regional Library Director, Danny Hales, is
working closely with the group. He is assisting in
preparation of the donation brochure, outlining the
needs of the library, and is willing to discuss contri-
butions, and needs of the facility He also has re-
ported to the group that the Hamilton County
Correctional Institution will be constructing much
of the furniture in the facility, saving thousands of
needed dollars of funding, but that there is much
that the HCCI cannot provide through their carpen-
try program.
This project, he notes, is a great example of how
a community can cooperate with each other. The
Madison County Commission is committed to the
project, and received a $500,000 grant from the State
of Florida for assistance in construction. The
Madison County Commission has reserved the
matching funds for that grant. The Madison Coun-
ty School Board, though, has assisted by providing
land next to the existing Lee School on a long-term
lease, thus saving thousands of dollars to the county
commission on land purchases. The Town of Lee
has assisted in waiving permit and hook-up fees.
They also allowed the county building inspector
to inspect the construction process, thus saving the
county inspector fees. The partnership of these po-
litical entities has made the project feasible.
Now though, the County is requesting help from
the citizens and businesses in Madison County to as-
sist in furnishing the facility. Several citizens have
joined forces to make that come about.
The next meeting of the Friends will be at Lee
Town Hall at 5:30 p.m., August 11. Anyone that is in-
terested is urged to attend and join up with these in-
terested citizens.

Hair Prc Tings


great Style To e e ign in


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
It's a story often told. Someone comes to Madi-
son County to visit family or friends and comment
on how friendly the people are and how beautiful the
place is. Then he or she comes back a second time
and says how nice it would be to live here. And then
they're hooked and Madison County is their new
home.
That's the story of Shannon Keel, the newest
business owner in Lee, having recently opened the
Hair Parlor in the cozy shop just east of downtown
Lee on U.S. 90. A professional hair stylist in Orlando
for almost twenty years, Shannon alternates weeks
between here and there, and has already built a
great reputation for her cuts, styles and makeovers.
"I set up the shop so the experience would be
very enjoyable to feel like home," she noted.
The daughter of Jim and Melissa Holben, Shan-
non had been struck by the community since her
parents moved here, and is thrilled to finally be call-
ing it home. She noted that she especially looks for-
ward to being her permanently, although
practicality requires she move between Lee and Or-
lando while she builds her customers.
"I love it here in Lee. Madison County is so

my customers feel just as beautiful," she went on to
say.
Serving adults and children of all ages, Shan-

to provide a little of that pampering she feels every-
body deserves.

In a past news release, Madison's finest restaurants
within the city limits of Madison was put into the spot-
light. Madison residents often take for granted the dining
options in Madison County So if a trip to town is not in the
plans, here are some places to visit outside of Madison.
If Lee is the place of residence, this small town serves
up some of the best food around. In the city limits of Lee,
Archie's is the place to go for some good down-home cook-
in'. The Red Onion Grill located at the Lee 1-10 exit also pro-
vides top-notch service and food. The newest restaurant in
Lee is Arby's, which serves up fresh beef every day
From Lee, jump on 1-10 and head towards Madison's
exit 258, and many dining options are available. If one is
looking for something quick, stop in at Huddle House that
is open 24 hours a day For breakfast, lunch or dinner, stop
in at Denny's, which is deemed as one of America's Fa-
vorite Restaurants. Denny's is open 24 hours a day as well.
For fast food and variety, visit the truck stop, which of-
fers Subway Dairy Queen and Wendy's all in one stop. If
one likes it their way visit Burger King, which is conve-
niently located on Hwy 53 south.
On the Greenville 1-10 exit, one may find Dairy Queen
to be the perfect stop for the evening. If something quick
to go is what's needed, S&J Deli is a popular spot within
the small community
While Madison County is not the largest place in
Florida, the community is privileged to have many choic-
es for fine dining.

band has been up to:
During the 2008-2009
band season, the theme
for this year's half-time
show was selected. The
theme is titled, Ramblin'
Cowboys. The story line
is that the cowboys are
looking for the best way
to get around. They start
by taking a 'Crazy
Train,' then they try to
'Come Sail Away' After
that they hop into 'Tito's
Taxicab' and finally de-
cide that the best way
for a cowboy to get
around is a 'Big Red

all of our students,"
stated Hill.
During the summer
break, band students
have been busy holding
fundraisers to help cov-
er the expenses of the
band for the upcoming
year.
The band is current-
ly seeking sponsors for
the upcoming 2009-2010
band season. For more
information, please con-
tact the band office at

sponsorship levels from
$25.00 to $250.00 and all
levels include great gifts
from the bands," he
said. All sponsors auto-
matically get their
names printed in the
Cowboy football pro-
gram as well as all band
programs throughout


the year.
The MCHS Bands are looking forward to a
great year.


Breakfast Served



At Senior Center


By Bryant Thigpen
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Senior Citizens Council of Madison County
is excited to announce the addition of the breakfast
menu to their daily servings to Madison's seniors.
Currently underway, the Senior Citizens Center
serves hot meals daily during lunchtime.
Beginning each morning at 9 a.m., seniors can
come into the center and enjoy a cold breakfast Mon-
day-Thursday, which consists of cereal and fruit, and
juice or milk. On Fridays, hot breakfast will be served
consisting of sausage, eggs and grits until 10 a.m. Se-
niors, along with citizens of the community, are en-
couraged to swing by the center and pick up a meal.
Seniors and community members who are not
enlisted in the Older American Act program are re-
quired to pay $2.00 per meal. Also, the center requests
that anyone wanting to be served breakfast must
place order in advance, no later than 8:30 a.m. each
morning.
"We are very grateful for this opportunity to bet-
ter serve our seniors," stated Sharon Underhill, Old-
er American Act Coordinator. "We encourage all of


our seniors and people of the community to join us
for breakfast. It's the most important meal of the
day!"
Hot and frozen meals are delivered in Madison
County, which include Lee, Madison, Cherry Lake,
Sirmans, Shady Grove, Hanson, Greenville and
Pinetta. Arrangements are made for seniors to re-
ceive meals when the center is closed on holidays.
Working seniors can also sit down and enjoy
their meal at the center or grab it to go.

Memorial Held For



Deputy Steve Agner


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Ten years ago, the life of Deputy Steve Agner
was tragically taken. In memorial, family, friends
and officers of the Madison County Sheriff's Office
gathered at the marker placed in his honor on the
courthouse lawn to remember their fallen comrade,
where Sheriff Ben Stewart hosted a very warm and
reverent ceremony.
The actual day of Deputy Agner's death was
July 26, 1999, but the ceremony was held over one
day to allow the courthouse flag, which flies near the
memorial marker, to be flown at half-mast for a full
business day. Capt. Mark Joost and Sgt. Dennis Pitts
served as color guard, lowering and then folding the


flag that will be housed at the Sheriff's Office.
As Stewart spoke to the Agner family, he ex-
pressed his extreme sorrow for their loss, recalling
the somber memory of the day when the deputy
died. Mark Joost, who also shared several comments
about his lost friend, reinforced his affections.
Dozens of onlookers also expressed sympathy to the
Agner family who sat together in attendance.
"I was in Perry at the time working for the State
Attorney's Office when I heard the call. I had a radio
and I remember hearing Thomas Glee, who I had
worked with, and I knew something serious had
happened. I'll always remember that day," Stewart
noted. "I hope we're all blessed to be here in anoth-
er ten years to honor Steve. He'll always be remem-


bered in the department."
Deputy Steve Agner is acknowledged on the
"Behind the Badge" website, where details of his
death are commemorated with hundreds of others
who were also lost in the line of duty. The closing of
that story simply says, "Steve left behind a six-year-
old daughter and many loving friends and family
members. He was 30 yrs. old."
Those words are far too few to capture the man
who was loved and reflected in the eyes of those pre-
sent who knew him. His memorial was an honor to
the fact that Deputy Steve Agner would always be re-
membered in Madison County

Family, friends and fellow officers gathered on July 27 at the Madison County Courthouse for the Steve Agner 10-year memorial service.

Sometimes


.ou 'ave To Say "Tlo"


By Gary Hardaway
A few months ago, during morn-
ing rush hour, two high school kids
peeled out of their high school park-
ing lot, and, seconds later, turned onto
one of the busiest arteries in the area.
In a flash they were racing through
heavy traffic at horrific speeds. Dodg-
ing and weaving, they miraculously
covered four miles before the in-
evitable crash.
The leading car plowed into a
pickup truck turning left into a shop-
ping center, instantly killing a male
passenger in the pickup. The seven-
teen year-old drag racer's car flipped
three or four times and burst into
flames. He spent the next six
months in the hospital
burn unit and is now
awaiting trial for ve-
hicular homicide.
The other kid,
also seventeen,
fled the scene,
but later decid- /
ed to come for-
ward. People
at the high
school could
easily identi-
fy both dri-
vers.
Police
compiled a
chilling array
of facts and
evidence.
Tests indicated
that the first car
was traveling 94
miles per hour
when it hit the pick-
up. Witnesses along \.,..,-
the thoroughfare esti-
mated that both cars were
doing 90 or more. Records
showed that the second boy had al-
ready been arrested a couple of times
for speeding. Peers told police that
both drivers habitually raced around
the vicinity of the school. Some de-
scribed the crash perpetrator as a
bully.
School authorities admitted that
the second kid was constantly in
trouble for disrupting class and dis-
regarding school rules. His parents
seemed helpless or unwilling to disci-
pline him. In fact, they had bought
him his late model Acura. The court
is now considering whether or not to
charge the boy as an adult. His par-
ents have testified that he is imma-
ture, not capable of consistently
making responsible decisions.
If I were the judge I would ask,
"Oh really? In that case, knowing
that your son was irresponsible, why
did you provide him with a car? Why


didn't you take the car away when he
got his first speeding ticket? Why did-
n't you ground him when you learned
of his unruly, disrespectful behavior
at school? Did you not realize that
your son was probably going to kill
somebody, possibly himself?"
Every sixteen-year-old kid wants
to get a driver's license. Who can
blame them? It's a ticket to freedom,
adventure, fun, dating, and a new
sense of self-respect or maybe self-
importance. But none of that is rele-
vant UNLESS that teenager thinks
more like a forty-year-old than a high
school kid. Parents must see plenty of
evidence that their would-be driver
is careful, wise, considerate,
and responsible ma-
ture beyond his or her
years.
I speak as a
former kid. My
folks made me
wait until af-
ter I was sev-
enteen to get
my license.
It seemed so
Unfair. I did
4 fairly well
in school.
At fifteen I
passed dri-
ver's ed,
was active
in our
church, and
was consid-
ered a pretty
good kid. But
my parents
weren't convinced
that I had the kind of
good judgment neces-
sary for navigating in
San Francisco Bay Area traf-
fic.
They were probably right.
Parents, especially us dads, must
learn to say "No, not yet," when it's re-
ally tough. When we understand how
much our teens want to hear our
"Yes." Even when they will wrongly
interpret our "No," as personal rejec-
tion and a grievous wound.
Once upon a time fathers would
say things like, "Pay attention and
grow wise for I am giving you good
guidance. Don't turn away from my
teaching, for I too was once my fa-
ther's son ... My father told me 'Take
my words to heart. Follow my instruc-
tions and you will live. Learn to be wise
and develop good judgment."
Hmm ... "Follow my instructions
and you will live." Sometimes
parental action means the difference
between life and death.
[Proverbs 4:1-5, Living Bible]

AUTO SENSE:
If Squirrels Could Talk About
Car Maintenance
(NAPSI)-When it comes to car versus squirrel, the car usual-
ly wins. But an innovative consumer awareness campaign
from one automotive parts manufacturer is doing its best to
alter the balance of power in favor of North America's furry
backyard friend.
Tenneco Inc., manufacturer of Monroe( shock absorbers
and struts, has launched a campaign to urge consumers to
think about squirrels when it's time for a vehicle repair or
safety inspection. Why? Research by industry specialists has
shown that a single worn shock or strut can increase the


time and distance needed to avoid hitting an object, such as
another car or, that's right, a squirrel.
Monroe's "Saving Squirrels" campaign is designed to help
motorists understand that shocks and struts, along with tires,
brakes and steering components, help determine a vehicle's
steering, stopping and stability characteristics. Worn shocks
and struts also can lead to accelerated wear of tires and
other parts. Ultimately, ride-control replacement can help
save money in the long run.
"The 'Squirrel' campaign is a fun way to tell a compelling
story. Brought to you by a squirrel, the message communi-
cates that worn shocks and struts can affect the driver's
safety and the safety of others," said Mark Christiaanse,
director of product management for the Monroe brand. "It's
also very important in today's economic environment to
invest in maintenance that can help extend the life of tires,


tie rods, ball joints and other expensive components, such
as ensuring properly functioning shocks and struts."
Automotive industry experts recommend replacing worn
shocks and struts at 50,000 miles. For many popular-selling
vehicles, replacing worn ride-control parts that have been
driven for 50,000 miles or more can improve the vehicle's
handling characteristics and comfort, according to
Christiaanse. (Actual mileage may vary depending on driver
ability, vehicle type, and type of driving and road conditions.)
To learn more about the "Save the Squirrels" campaign and
to access important vehicle maintenance and repair tips,
videos, online games and local traffic reports, visit
www.savingsquirrels.com.
Avoiding road obstacles (including squirrels) is one of the
jobs of a vehicle's shocks and struts.

In Mobile Homes With Land


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Although it is a common configu-
ration in Madison County land with
a mobile home it's actually a very
good way to ease the risk in real estate
investment. Here are a few reasons:
1. Less competition
One does not have to compete
with all of those investors who adver-
tise: "I Buy Ugly Houses," or compete
with new investors who just pur-
chased a "No Money Down" type
course from some late night infomer-
cial. Mobile home investors are com-
parably fewer and farther between.
2. Less money at risk
Mobile home investing requires a
smaller outlay. With mortgage pay-
ments between $200 and $400 per deal,
investors can overcome the fear of
someone not paying.
3. Appreciation
Surprising to some, doublewide
land/home properties appreciate in a
manner similar to comparable stick-
built homes. Appreciation is a bonus
though, as the initial focus should be
on a positive cash flow and capturing
equity through wholesale purchases.
4. Demand
By focusing marketing and prop-
erty acquisitions on the needs of the
lower/middle income housing mar-
ket, the demand for properties typi-
cally remains high in both good and


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
U.S. officials are weighing a
plan to let borrowers who have fallen
behind on mortgage payments avoid
eviction by renting their home in-
stead. Under one idea being dis-
cussed, delinquent homeowners
would surrender ownership of their
homes, but would continue to live in
the property for several years.
A U.S. Treasury spokeswoman
said, "We are constantly reviewing
new ways to help struggling home-
owners and stabilize the housing
market. This is just one idea among
many that has been considered, but
no decisions are imminent on the
matter."
Officials have expressed frustra-
tion as red tape and rising interest
rates have slowed a housing rescue
plan announced in February that was
meant to refinance the mortgages of
five million borrowers and lower
monthly payments for four million
more. A housing crisis of record de-
faults began in 2006 at the end of a
five-year housing boom of easy lend-
ing. But climbing unemployment is
driving the current crisis.
Since one in five homeowners
owe more than their property is
worth, they have little cushion if they
lose their job or face another crisis,
said Jay Brinkmann, the chief econo-
mist for the Mortgage Bankers Asso-
ciation. Consequently, an
administration official stated that the
Treasury Department is mulling new
ways to save jobless homeowners
from foreclosure as it continues to ex-


bad times. Typically, when times are
good, more en-
try-level jobs
are available,
which means
more people
who need af-
fordable hous-
ing. In poor
economies,
downsizing
occurs. Peo-
ple are no
longer able to
afford to live
above their
means, forc-
ing them to
find afford-
able housing.
5. Less ex-
pensive
maintenance
Not only
are the
land/home
deals less ex-
pensive than
traditional real estate investments,
we find that the repairs are easier and
less expensive. We try to provide the
safest, cleanest property we can at
each price level. Our properties all
fall within the low to lower/middle-in-
come family range. These tenants can-
not reasonably have the same quality


pand its mortgage aid. Additionally,
policy-makers have considered loan
forbearance letting borrowers de-
lay, defer or skip payments, keeping
with other aid for the unemployed.
Two years ago, a liberal econo-
mist floated the idea that struggling
homeowners could become long-term
renters. Dean Baker, a researcher
with the Center for Economic Policy
Research in Washington, says his
idea still has merit and overcomes the
key moral hazards of helping trou-
bled homeowners.
Under Baker's plan, a bankruptcy
judge would help determine a fair
rent for the property. Banks would be
able to sell the occupied homes, but
the renter's lease would remain in ef-
fect. Borrowers would lose their stake
in the home so it is hard to say that
they've gotten a windfall, but they've
found a way to stay in the home, al-
though officials are mulling several
ideas on how to swap a homeowner's
loan for a rental lease without dis-
rupting mortgage markets
The government could also
pay mortgage service companies cash
to take part in the program or en-
courage lenders to sell the homes to a
third party that would write rental
agreements. Both scenarios are un-
der consideration.
Many non-profit agencies man-
age affordable properties and might
be interested in partnering in such a
rental program as well. It could po-
tentially be a win-win for the home-
owner and the lender.

Summer Reading Is Fun And Required


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
As July comes to an end, students
are reminded and parents are urged to
support the summer reading program.
Lists were sent to homes at the end of
last school year, but since even the best
students are notorious for procrastinat-
ing summer school work, parents are
asked to give students a constructive
nudge.
Instructors note how unfortunate it
is that reading is considered a chore by
many, especially reading from a list of
some of the best writing ever pub-
lished. All agree that reading is the fun-
damental skill upon which all formal
education depends.
Research clearly shows that chil-
dren who are poor readers at the end of

body mention that reading could be

Uncle Sam Pedicated To Making


College More Accessible


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Few argue that America's future economic
strength depends on the quality of education. Coun-
tries that out-teach America today will out-compete
America tomorrow. President Barack Obama is call-
ing for America to once again lead the world in col-
lege graduates, proposing nearly $200 billion in new
scholarships and tax credits for college tuition, and
Vice President Joe Biden is examining new ideas for
college affordability through his Middle Class Task
Force.
U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has
also outlined another key component of the Adminis-
tration's higher education agenda: its plan to simplify
the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAF-
SA). Currently, the form imposes a needlessly difficult
obstacle in the path of 16 million college students and
their families each year, as each student is asked as
many as 153 questions, most of which have little or no
effect on actual financial aid packages.
Experts believe that the difficulty of the applica-
tion and unpredictability of the aid awards under-
mine student aid's ability to reach students who are
unsure whether they can afford college. And there are
1.5 million enrolled students who are probably eligi-
ble for Pell grants but failed to apply. Therefore, the
Departments of Education and Treasury will work to-


gether to simplify the financial aid process by mod-
ernizing the online application, seeking legislation
that will eliminate unnecessary questions, and creat-
ing an easy process for students to apply by using tax
data already available.
The end result will be an application that re-
quests only easily obtainable personal information
and students will be able to complete an application
with only basic, personal information and a few clicks
of their mouse. Here are a few other highlights:
Setting Ambitious Goals for America: Presi-
dent Obama has asked every American to commit to
at least one year or more of higher education or ca-
reer training to help meet a new national goal: By
2020, America will once again have the highest pro-
portion of college graduates in the world.
Expanding Pell Grants and College Tax
Credits: The Recovery Act increased Pell Grants by
$500 to $5,350 and created the American Opportunity
Tax Credit, a new $2,500 tax credit for four years of
college tuition. The President's 2010 Budget proposal
would make these policies permanent and ensure the
Pell Grant continues to grow steadily by making it an
entitlement. Together, they provide approximately
$200 billion in college scholarships and tax credits
over the next decade.
Modernizing and Expanding the Perkins
Loan Program: The President's 2010 Budget propos-


es to make this vital program available to over 2,600
additional schools and an estimated 2.7 million addi-
tional students each year. By providing an additional
$5 billion in Perkins Loans and continuing their low
five percent interest rate, it is hoped that students
with the greatest need will have access to additional
federal financial resources they did not have before.
Creating a New College Access and Comple-
tion Fund: The 2010 Budget proposal includes a five-
year, $2.5 billion fund to build federal-state-local
partnerships aimed at improving college access and
completion, particularly for those from disadvan-
taged backgrounds. These funds would be used to
evaluate programs aimed at increasing college enroll-
ment and graduation and to grow and bring to scale
programs that are proven to be successful.
Helping Families Save for College: The Presi-
dent's Middle Class Task Force has directed the Trea-
sury Department to investigate ways for 529 savings
plans to more effectively and efficiently help families
save for college.
In Madison County, North Florida Community
College and St. Leo University have established

arl Baptist Winisters Of adison


By Alfa Hunt
Special to the Madison Enterprise-Recorder
There were several Baptist ministers who
served Madison County in the 19th century,
but three in particular stand out. They are
the Reverends: B.S. Fuller, WB. Cooper, and
John Goldwire McCall. All three had an asso-
ciation with the one of the first Baptist
churches established in Madison County,
Concord Baptist Church located in the Ham-
burg-Lovett area.
Rev. B.S. Fuller was born in Fitchburg,
Mass., Sept. 3, 1806. He was the son of Joseph
and Eunice Dodge Fuller. His mother was the
sister of Daniel Dodge.
He was converted in his 17th year, and re-
ceived into the church at Holden, Mass.,
which Elder Walker served as pastor at that
time. From the time of his union with the
church, Fuller was active and zealous. Soon
after his conversion, he moved to Boston and
taught in the South Boston Sunday school,
which only numbered about 80 at commence-
ment, but at the close of his labors had in-
creased to 300.
Fuller was soon attacked severely by asth-
ma and he was forced him to seek warmer cli-
mates, so it wasn't long before Fuller
relocated to Florida. He arrived in Florida in
1837, but did not bring his family until two
years later, when he became satisfied to re-
main in the State.
While Florida was still a Territory, he was
licensed to preach by the Concord Baptist
Church in Madison County. He received his
license January 15, 1843. Almost immediately,
he was requested to become the pastor of the
Hickstown Church and was ordained January
29.
The Presbytery which ordained him was
composed of Alexander Moseley, Thomas
Lang, R.J. Mays, and WB. Cooper. For several
years he served as the pastor of the church
located in the Madison County Courthouse as
well as several other churches situated with-
in the county. His last pastorate was located
in Monticello in Jefferson County.
In November 1854, the Florida Baptist As-
sociation held its annual meeting. It met at
the Concord Church and during the meeting
a committee was appointed. R.J. Mays, WB.
Cooper, Fuller, WH. Goldwire, W Blewett,
D.B. Daniel, H.Z. Ardis, S.C. Craft, John Ca-
son, and T.W Terrell were nominated to work
with the representatives of two other Associ-


nations to form the State Baptist Association.
The meeting ended up taking place in the
private home of R.J. Mays either because he
was too ill to travel to the church or because
the church was too crowded with other meet-
ings at the time. It was here that the Florida
State Baptist Convention was created. In the
City Park of Madison, there stands a monu-
ment commemorating this event.
Fuller served the Florida Association
well as a missionary. He also served as an
agent to the Southern Baptist Publication So-
ciety located in Charleston, SC.
According to William Cathcart of the
Baptist Encyclopedia Vol. 1, "The illness that
terminated his life was protracted and
painful, but it was borne with much submis-


concord Baptist unurcn
sion, till death came to his relief April 20,
1870, at his home in Monticello."
The writer of his obituary observed that
Fuller "sympathized with every laudable ef-
fort to advance the cause of Christ."
WB. Cooper was born in the Abbeville
District of South Carolina in 1807. Cooper
was instructed by his father, Joseph Cooper
of Virginia, for most of his early education
until 1828. In that year, he was sent to attend
an academy close to his home located in the
Laurens District.
While he lived at the institution, he was
converted by the preaching of Daniel Man-
gram. He was baptized by Mangram at the
Mount Pleasant Church.
Upon leaving the academy, Cooper attend-
ed a theological school at a place called High
Hills which was the commencement of the
Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He
remained there for two years and in 1835 he

went to the Columbian College where he
graduated in 1837.
After he graduated from Columbia, he
moved to Augusta, Ga., where he was or-
dained around 1838. He then relocated to
Florida around 1839 or 1840 and began
preaching at the church in the Madison
County Courthouse.
From then on until the time of his death,
Cooper preached in Middle Florida and
would occasionally cross the state line in
Georgia.
According to historians, Cooper was a
leader in the area of common morals, and he
frequently presided over associations and
conventions. He worked in Hamilton, Colum-
bia, Madison, Jefferson, and other counties
located in Middle Florida. The Florida Asso-
ciation eventually erected a monument of his
grave.
John Goldwire McCall was born January
18, 1836. His family was apparently well to do
because he received an excellent education.
In 1858, he graduated from Union University
in Tennessee. Three weeks later, he was made
Professor of Greek and Hebrew at the Uni-
versity and stayed in that position until the
Civil War was declared.
He immediately offered his services in
the War and was commissioned as the first
lieutenant of Company K, 15 Regiment Geor-
gia Volunteer Infantry. He served in the Con-
federate Army until he was wounded when a
mini-ball passed his face. It was during his
recovery at the hospital that he was elected
Ordinary of Brooks County, Ga. For Four
years, he served in that position until he was
admitted to the Bar and began practicing law
in Quitman.
He served as the Judge of Probate in
Brooks County and as the mayor of Quitman.
He was a vice-president of the State Agricul-
tural Society. Six times he served as the mod-
erator of the Mercer Baptist Association and
twice he served as a vice-president of the
Georgia Baptist Convention.
In the early years of his life, he became a
baptized Christian and united the Concord
Baptist Church in Madison. After his return
from the Civil War, he untied the church by
letter with the Quitman Baptist and began
teaching Bible Class there in 1863. He also
taught and conducted other Sunday Schools
near Quitman until the day he died in the late
19th century

Helping Florida's sea turtles survive


requires beach responsibility


* Leave only footprints and
keep beaches dark
By FWCSTAFF

Ancient creatures of the sea fight a bat-
tle each year to reproduce and survive in a
world not always hospitable to them.
Sea turtles nesting on Florida's beaches
face an uncertain future, according to the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission's (FWC) scientists. Threats come
from encroachment on nesting beaches by
coastal development and encounters with
pollutants, beach debris and fishing gear.
Five species of sea turtles nest on Florida
beaches, with the loggerhead showing up
in the largest numbers. Green and leather-
back sea turtles also nest in the Sunshine
State. Two other species, Kemp's Ridley and
hawksbill sea turtles nest infrequently in
Florida but inhabit Florida waters. The FWC
lists the loggerhead as a threatened species
with the other four listed as endangered.
However, the loggerhead's status could
change because of data collected showing
a downward trend since 1998. During the
2007 April to September nesting season,
scientists found the lowest number of log-
gerhead nests in 19 years. At the same time,
the number of loggerheads found dead, sick
or injured each year in Florida has more
than doubled during the past decade.
"If we don't do something to reverse this
trend, the loggerhead will also become en-
dangered," said Robbin Trindell, an FWC
Imperiled Species Program administrator.
Nearly 90 percent of the loggerhead
population that nests in the southeastern
United States, nests on Florida's beaches.
This population is one of only two large log
gerhead nesting populations worldwide.
Sea turtles are air-breathing reptiles
well-suited for sea life with a hydrodynam-
ic-shaped shell, large and powerful front
flippers. These physical characteristics en-
able them to dive deep into the ocean and
to swim long distances.
Female loggerhead turtles begin coming
on shore in the spring with peak months


for laying eggs in June and July. The nest-
ing female digs a hole with her hind flip-
pers and then lays approximately 115 eggs.
After covering the nest with sand, the mas-
sive creature, weighing nearly 300 pounds,
makes her way back to the ocean. A female
might come ashore two to five times during
the nesting season. Amazingly, the females
come back to the same beach where they
hatched decades earlier. The males, once
they make the long crawl after hatching out
of the egg, never return to land.
Major disturbances to sea turtle nest-
ing habits come from seawalls and beach
nourishment projects. Individuals can
help by following safe beach lighting sug-
gestions, filling holes dug for sand castles
and picking up litter.
"Just one light can kill thousands of
turtles over several years," Trindell said.
"Many lights burn all night, without con-
tributing to human safety."
Late in the summer, after an incuba-
tion of 55-70 days, the hatchlings begin
breaking out of their shells and crawling
out of the nest. Instinct tells the 1- to 2-inch
hatchling to head toward the brightest ho-
rizon and away from dark silhouettes. In
days long gone in Florida, the brightest ho-
rizon shone over the ocean, and the hatch-
lings would move away from the shadows
onthe dunes and begin the crawl to the sea.
Nest predators might include raccoons,
ghost crabs and fire ants. In modern-day
Florida, hatchlings must crawl through a
battlefield of debris left by humans. Furni-
ture discarded by beachgoers can obstruct
a nesting female turtle or become a trap
for the hatchlings. Avoiding firework left
overs strewn along the hatchling's path
can cause exhaustion and delay in getting
to the water. If stranded on the beach when
the sun rises, the hatchling's chance for
survival diminishes and dehydration and
sun exposure become hazards.
"We can all help sea turtles survive,"
Trindell said. "If we just take personal re-
sponsibility, we can go a long way to ensure
the sea turtle co-exists with us for many
more years to come."

creatures of the sea
a Blair Witherington keeps a close watch on sea turtles


By FWC STAFF
Blair Witherington returned
from Oman, a country in the
Middle East, in April excited
about the future of loggerhead
turtles, despite discouraging
news in Florida from nesting
counts in 2007.
Witherington, research scien-
tist with the FWC's Fish and Wild-
life Research Institute (FWRI),
studies sea turtles daily.
"The loggerhead population is
in serious decline," Witherington
said. "Eightypercent of the world's
loggerheads nest on beaches
in Florida and on the island of
Masirah in the Indian Ocean off
the coast of Oman."
In Florida, the loggerhead is
the most common sea turtle. But
worldwide, the loggerhead is rare,


said Witherington, who went to
Masirah to help set up a monitor-
ing program for the threatened
reptile, similar to what Florida uses
on its 33 index nesting beaches.
"We have made headway
in conservation efforts
for sea turtles."
Witherington coordinates Flor-
ida's Index Nesting Beach Survey,
which is conducted annually from
May 15 to Aug. 31. The process in-
volves volunteers who go out be-
fore sunrise each morning, seven
days a week during the nesting
season. Volunteers monitor nests
laid during the night and report
false crawls- signs of a sea turtle's
flippers in the sand but no nest.
"There are indications that
there may be declining numbers
in the loggerhead population in


Masirah as well," Witherington
said. "But we need reliable data to
determine it conclusively."
Witherington received his
Ph.D. from the University ofFlori
da, and his dissertation addressed
the orientation of hatchling sea
turtles and the effect of light on
their journey to the sea.
"If they head in the wrong di-
rection, they die," Witherington
said of the effect of direct lighting
on the beach.
Counties and municipalities in
the majority of the sea turtle nest-
ing areas in Florida now have ordi-
nances in place for lighting man-
agement, something that brings a
smile to Witherington's face.
"This is absolutely a success
story in Florida," he said. "We have
made headway in conservation ef-
forts for sea turtles."
Witherington also conducts
neo-natal research. For years,
scientists have called the post-
hatchling's first year, "the lost
year" because no one knew where
the hatchlings went once they
made it to the ocean from the
nesting beach.
Witherington and his team


discovered that hatchling logger-
heads and green turtles migrate
out to the floating, open-ocean
sargassum (seaweed) communi-
ty offshore from nesting beaches.
They also found hawksbill and
Kemp's Ridley sea turtles that are
approximately a year old.
"It's very exciting to find small
Kemp's Ridley because they are
the rarest of sea turtles," he said.
"We usually see large juveniles
or adults swimming in Florida's
waters."
While concerns remain about
the loggerhead's survival, With-
erington believes the work done
by the FWC and other groups,
such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service and the National Marine
Fisheries Service, will help con-
serve this giant reptile.
"I work with a team of skilled
and well-informed people," he
said. "And the team extends be-
yond the FWC with more than
2,000 people in the state doing
nesting counts and conveying
conservation messages.
"Florida would be much
poorer without our sea turtles,"
Witherington said.
