Flu Fears Strike District

Absentee rate now exceeds 15 percent

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Warnings regarding the H1N1
(Swine) Flu have been circulating for
months, so when students returned to
school recently, health and school offi-
cials were hopeful that students would
carefully adopt all prevention warn-
ings, especially hand washing. In con-
sideration of a significant spike in
absenteeism though, including many
students being sent home daily, the
district is reminding parents and stu-
dents to review warnings and proce-
Teachers and school medical per-
sonnel have been instructed to imme-
diately remove any child from class
that demonstrates flu symptoms, pre-
ferring to fall on the side of caution
than risking exposure. Supporting
these precautions, the district is tak-

ing additional steps as well.
These steps include:

Wiping down all common areas
and furnishings daily
Wiping down buses daily
Instructing students to wash
hands with hand sanitizer at least
three times daily
Distributing masks supplied by
Health Department for nursing areas

Michael Akes, district personnel
and human resource director, further
reminds parents:
"Please help us by wiping down
belongings that might be shared and
especially reminding your child to
wash their hands thoroughly, and
keep them away from their mouth,
eyes and nose. And, if your child does
get sick, please don't send them back

to school until they don't have a fever
or other symptoms without medica-
tion for at least 24 hours."
There have been no confirmed cas-
es of H1N1 in those staying home, and
although caution and hand washing is
being strongly urged, students are not
being told to stay home if they are
well, even among siblings. There
would naturally be cases of colds and
flu besides the H1N1, but these are be-
ing handled as though it might be the
H1N1 until the concern passes.
Vicki Brown, emergency manage-
ment director for the county, strongly
agrees. The following list, "Swine Flu:
10 things you need to know," issued by
the Center for Disease Control and re-
cently distributed by Brown will be
helpful in addressing the issue.
1. No cause for panic.
So far, swine flu isn't much more

threatening than regular seasonal flu.
During the few months of this new
flu's existence, hospitalizations and
deaths from it seem to be lower than
the average seen for seasonal flu, and
the virus hasn't dramatically mutated.
That's what health officials have ob-
served in the Southern Hemisphere
where flu season is now winding
down. Still, more people are suscepti-
ble to swine flu and U.S. health offi-
cials are worried because it hung in so
firmly here during the summer a
time of year the flu usually goes away
2. Virus tougher on some.
Swine flu is more of a threat to
certain groups children under 2,
pregnant women, people with health
problems like asthma, diabetes and
heart disease. Teens and young adults
are also more vulnerable to swine flu.

The Dream
Early Wednesday morning, I awoke with a start
after having one of the weirdest dreams of my life.
All I could do in the dream was say, "Lord, Lord..."
and when I awoke, I said, "Lord, thank you that was
only a dream."
'The dream was very disturbing. As my family
and I stood on the sidewalk in front of Subway in
Madison, we heard a tremendous explosion. Look-
ing up in the sky, I saw a huge jumbo jet that had ex-
ploded right over the school board building only
there was no fire. People were falling out of the jet,
including some that had parachutes that would not
open. Some people had on business suits, some peo-
ple wore casual clothes, some people were dressed in
military fatigues. As I said, the only thing that I
could say in the dream was "Lord, Lord." My sister,
Abbie, began to cry in the dream and she rarely
When I told someone at work about it, they im-
mediately said that it reminded them of the prayer
issue at last Friday evening's football game, when
the fans joined in saying the Lord's Prayer and a
handful of people bucked and complained. People
were falling on both sides of the issue, he pointed
out. He also said that the school board office was sig-
If the dream was about the prayer issue, all I can
say is that I will continue to call on the name of the
Lord. I'm also sure that Abbie would cry if she were
ever forbidden to be prayed for or to pray herself.
I don't really know what the dream was about
but I do know that I was shaken by the dream. God,
however, does not give me a spirit of fear. "For God
hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and
of love, and of a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7)

Mr. and Mrs. John Henry Phillips of Lee and Mr. and Mrs.
Mark Guice of Biloxi, Miss., would like to announce the en-
gagement of their two children Bryan Henry Phillips and
April Elizabeth Guice.
Bryan is a 2005 graduate of Madison Co. High
School and is currently attending college at The Bap-
tist College of Florida where he is pursuing his de-
gree in Pastoral Ministry. (
April is a 2008 graduate of Bellevue
West High School and is currently attend-

So guess what??? ....
other day I go into the
post office... Let me back W
up a minute... my oldest d
son, Daniel, is in the Ma-
rine Corps presently
over in the war...I went
into the post office to
get one of those boxes
to send a care-package in. (Those
women in the post office are always
such a joy to talk to!!!... like they
wake up happy) Well, this particu-
lar day it was Mrs. Opal Strickland,
whom I've known back from my
days at Aucilla Christian... where
they so graciously allowed me to at-
tend regardless of all of my antics,
fights, and constant pranks that kept
me in the principle's office... A
LOT!!!! (My dad said he sent me to
private school and all I did was chew
the covers off the books!)
Anyway... I go to get a box to
send some munchies to Daniel. Mrs.
Strickland warns me that I can't
send any pork or pork by-products to
Daniel if he is in an Arab country...
so I waited.... and that was all...... I
laughed and said. "You didn't men-
tion drugs, alcohol, pornography,
child slaves, hand grenades, or rock-
et launchers, ... just no pork". She
laughs and agrees... but that's the
I went to the grocery store and
bought pop-tarts, granola bars, and
those powdered drink mixes... a lot
of them...but made sure nothing had
pork I figured there's a bunch of
boys that may not get a box from
home. Daniel will share. I've been
sending a box a week, sometimes
two. The lady behind the counter
asked if I had a junk food craving. I
told her it was for the Marines
across the pond. She said "It is the
Marines that keep us free".
Now, I am the most adamant
supporter of freedom of religion.
And.... I know in this day and time
we are forced to never offend any-
one. (Push 1 for English, can't wear
a Confederate flag, can't pray at the
football game.... but you can put a
picture of Jesus in the urinal and
call it "art.") But no one... and I
mean NO ONE, will ever tell me I
cannot pray when and where I want.
That's what wars are fought over,
and Ill be the first one to start a war
when they say I can't pray (Under
the Patriot Act that means I can be
arrested and held without bond or
Constitutional rights.) Do you re-
member the story a couple of years
ago about the older gentleman that
was fired for telling people "God
bless you" or "Have a blessed day?"
He was just a senior citizen still
working when so many healthy peo-
ple today will not, and refuse to. In-
cidentally,... he happened to be
black... do the math ... I'm sure he

tirement plans,
401K's, etc.... so he's still working. He
also grew up in an America where
grandma and a permission switch
taught you the fear of God... but then
he gets fired for very nicely saying
"God bless you." And this happened
in the United States!!!
But if the Marines are over
there fighting to give those people
freedom, American boys dying,
American boys bleeding their Amer-
ican blood into the worthless desert
sand, why can't my boy eat some
beanie-weanies??? That boy grew up
on homemade sausage! Several
months ago I was appalled when I
was talking to a teenage daughter of
my then girl-friend, only to find no
one had ever taught her in school
why the pilgrims ever came to
America. In the war for our inde-
pendence most ever man, woman,
and child held a gun.... we won... ac-
tually twice! (1812) But now we send
our boys across the pond to fight in a
country where they have been fight-
ing for two thousand years, but we
must fight for their freedom. Please
don't misrepresent these words as
my disagreement with us being
there... I'd rather fight them there
than here...
So my second son, Forest, says
"Why don't we send Daniel some
Spam.... then when he's in a fight
with those people he can pop the top
and throw a "Spam-grenade". So I re-
alize that's the same idea I had fif-
teen years ago.... Tell those people
"the fighting will stop today! If it
does not we will
take the same C-
130's we used in
Viet Nam to

spray agent or-
ange and we
will spray pig
lard all over
your country It
will be in your
dirt, in your wa-
ter, on your play-
the fighting
stops today!!!"
The war will be
over and our
kids can come
If you have

a loved one across the
pond, maybe the child of
, your neighbor or friend...
send them a letter and tell
them we appreciate what
they are doing. Ill give
you Daniel's address....
I've already told him to
pass out the goodies.
Those sailors on the Navy
boat would appreciate
some love from home too.
My brother was there sev-
eral times and he said
Crystal Light and cookies
were worth their weight in gold. I
asked Daniel on the satellite
phone...(where you only get every
other syllable)... what did the boys
most want. He said "granola bars".
Give 'em some love.

With the cost of food on the rise, saving mon-
ey at the grocery store might seem impossible.
Yet, there are steps you can take to reduce the
amount of money you spend at the grocery store.
Groceries are a flexible expense, which mean you
can trim and cut back on the amount you spend.
Extension Nutrition Specialists advise planning
before you make a trip can save money at the gro-
cery store.
A proven strategy that is the biggest savings
tool is to make a grocery list. This may sound like
a no brainer, but most people just run into the
store after a working day, tired, and begin to fill
their carts. If you keep a running list handy to
add items throughout the week and remember to
take it with you. Before you leave home check
your pantry and freezer to make sure don't pur-
chase items you already have on hand. Stick to
your list, but do stay flexible if you encounter a
sale. Everything looks good on an empty stom-
ach, so eat before you grocery shop. By the way,
leave the kids at home; their wants are great as
they walk down the aisle.
Make a habit of using the food you buy. Pay
attention to food you end up tossing, food that
ends up in the garbage is wasted money. You may
need to buy less and cook fewer servings. Plan
meals to use leftovers from previous days, or
freeze the food for a meal the following week. I
like to call this strategy "planned overs." Oh, and
don't throw away ripe bananas, they freeze well
and can be used in pancakes, banana bread or
Look at the weekly grocery ads and plan your
meals with the sale items. Plan to cook a main
dish or meat one evening and then add different
side dishes another day to offer variety in your
meals. Eating at home will keep you from eating
out which can be a major expense.
One great way to save on food cost is to pack
your lunch each day. Consider taking left-over
food from the night before. Keep peanut butter on
hand and you can always make a sandwich from
food in the pantry.
Compare prices of different brands, generic
or store brands may be a better bargain. The ap-
pearance may not be as bright or appealing to the
eye, but a can of tomatoes that go into a chili dish
or casserole will be thoroughly mixed in and you
won't notice a difference when the meal is
Coupons can save you money, but only if you
normally use the product. Don't spend extra money
purchasing food just because you have a coupon. Use
coupons for foods you normally eat. Check websites
of the products you use, there are often coupons to

Good morning,
folks! So far it's a lovely
day but probably not for
long. A few clouds keep
interfering with the
bright sunshine. I don't
believe anyone can say
we haven't had enough
rain this summer.
About two weeks
ago several tubs of wa-
ter were dumped on my
tin roof quite suddenly
in the middle of the
night and lightening
kept the outside as
bright as if an electrical
show was on display -
and it was! Then it
rained hard until near
noon when the sun
seemed to appear
brighter than it ever had
and asked, "Why were
you so worried, I'm still
here-just took a short
rest!" Yesterday, though,
the rain fell drearily, as
if it were tired, and it
made me feel the same
way-I don't like that feel-
ing! But my birds were
cheerful and were very
happy as usual when I
threw them a little
breakfast. They don't ex-
actly take the place of
the chickens I once had
but are less trouble. I
lost my right to keep
chickens when I moved
away for a year-that had

I had a flock of
White Rock chickens in
a pen and lots of colorful
Bantams which had the
run of the place. Since
they flew like birds and
even roosted in trees, I
couldn't pen them. Once
one of the hens made a
nest in the top of a tall
cedar tree and when the
little ones hatched, I was
afraid they would fall
out so found someone to
climb up and get them. I
need not have worried
for one fell and it didn't
get hurt at all.
I had to remove my
White Rock rooster from
the pen-he was too heavy
and didn't want to cut

his spurs so turned him
loose in the yard. Rocky
became a great pet. He
knew where he was sup-
posed to roost but would
wait at my front door to
be picked up and car-
ried. And he would lay
his head on my chest.
Then when I let him out
in the morning, if I was
in a hurry and didn't
pay him some attention
to him, he would get
mad and try to attack
me from behind! Ani-

A stolen car was recovered on Tuesday, Sept.
at the 246-mile marker on Interstate 10.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol,
1993 Ford four-door was traveling west on 1-10 whe
the driver of the car lost control of the vehicle. Tt
car traveled onto the north should of 1-10, striking
a tree and overturning on its roof.
The vehicle was stolen and none of the three
men in the vehicle would admit to being the drive
Arrested was John R. Destefano, 43, whose a
dress was unknown, Jeffery Clinton Smith, 38, wh

Hospital with serious injuries. Destefano an

well today he's running first team
because our first team tackler is
hurt, you know, and might not get
him back. He might start the Mia-
mi game, I'm not sure," Coach
Bowden said. "But he'll be a back
up at worst."
The main key that will unlock
the door for McDaniel will be his
condition. "Jacobbi hasn't missed
a day of practice yet," Bowden
stated. The team completed their
final scrimmage of the pre-season
on Saturday, August 29, and imme-
diately began preparing for the
season opener against Miami.
"I hope he can stay healthy."
Coach Bowden is
thrilled about the poten-
tial of Chris Thompson
as well, who is a fresh-

team. When asking
Coach Bowden about

Ordinary, seasonal flu hits old-
er people the hardest, but not
- swine flu. Scientists think older
people may have some immunity
from exposure years earlier to
viruses similar to swine flu.
3. Wash your hands
often and long.
Like seasonal flu, swine flu
spreads through the coughs and
sneezes of people who are sick.
Emphasize to children that they
should wash with soap and water
long enough to finish singing the
alphabet song, "Now I know my
ABC's..." Also use alcohol-based
hand sanitizers.
4. Get the kids vaccinated.
These groups should be first in
line for swine flu shots, especially
if vaccine supplies are limited -
people 6 months to 24 years old,
pregnant women, health care
Also a priority: Parents and
caregivers of infants, people with
those high-risk medical conditions
previously noted.
5. Get your shots early.
Millions of swine flu shots
should be available by October. If
you are in one of the priority
groups, try to get your shot as ear-
ly as possible. Check with your
009 doctor or local or state health de-
of partment about where to do this.
ht, Many children should be able to
get vaccinated at school. Permis-
- sion forms will be sent home in ad-

1 $24,000

6. Immunity takes awhile.
Even those first in line for
shots won't have immunity until
around Thanksgiving. That's be-
cause it's likely to take two shots,
given three weeks apart, to provide
protection. And it takes a week or
two after the last shot for the vac-
cine to take full effect. The regular
seasonal flu shot should be widely
available in September. People
over 50 are urged to be among the
first to get that shot.
7. Vaccines are being tested.
Health officials presume the
swine flu vaccine is safe and effec-
tive, but they're testing it to make
sure. The federal government has
begun studies in eight cities across
the country to assess its effective-
ness and figure out the best dose.
Vaccine makers are doing their
own tests as well.
8. Help! Surrounded by
swine flu.
If an outbreak of swine flu
hits your area before you're vacci-
nated, be extra cautious. Stay away
from public gathering places like
malls, sports events and churches.
Try to keep your distance from
people in general. Keep washing
those hands and keep your hands
away from your eyes, nose and
9. What if you get sick?
If you have other health prob-
lems or are pregnant and develop
flu-like symptoms, call your doctor
right away You may be prescribed

transporting currency. A separate K-9 search of the
black bag containing the currency was conducted by
K-9 Officer Maurice using K-9 LEO that resulted in a
positive alert for an illegal substance.
The occupants were receipted for the currency
and the currency was seized and pending forfeiture.

real good and sprained his ankle.
That made him miss about three
weeks of practice, probably two
weeks of practice. He's still got a
slight limp and whether he will
play or not, I don't know. Of course
a lot will be based on how he feels."
"Chris has had to put up with
an ankle sprain for the last three
weeks, but he keeps still trying to
practice," Bowden stated.
When this reporter asked
Coach Bowden if there was any-
thing that stood out about Mc-
Daniel, he was quick to point out
the equivalency of the talent be-
tween McDaniel and Thompson.

"Well, nothing more that has also
gotten the attention of Chris
Thompson, they're both good ath-
letes, they're both what we
thought they were and we feel like
they're great additions to our pro-
Coach Bowden is well aware of
the talent that Madison County
produces. McDaniel and Thomp-
son have brought much excite-
ment to the Seminoles and are
looking to shine in '09. "But I'll
tell you, both of them are great ad-
ditions to the Florida State team.
We wouldn't swap them for any-
body," Bowden added.

Tamiflu or Relenza. These drugs
can reduce the severity of swine
flu if taken right after symptoms
start. If you develop breathing
problems (rapid breathing for
kids), pain in your chest, constant
vomiting or a fever that keeps ris-
ing, go to an emergency room.
Most people, though, should just
stay home and rest. Cough into
your elbow or shoulder. Stay home
for at least 24 hours after your
fever breaks. Fluids and pain re-
lievers like Tylenol can help with
body aches and fever. Always
check with a doctor before giving
children any medicines. Adult cold
and flu remedies are not for them.
10. No swine flu
from barbecue.
You can't catch swine flu from
pork or poultry either (even
though it recently turned up in
turkeys in Chile). Swine flu is not
spread by handling meat, whether
it's raw or cooked.
As noted, Swine Flu shots have
not yet been distributed. However,
the other general flu shot will be
available in a few weeks and par-
ents are asked to sign the permis-
sion form when it is sent home.
Parents will be notified of any up-
dates regarding the H1N1 shot and
other actions as soon as the infor-
mation is available. For additional
questions, please contact the dis-
trict office at (850) 973-5022.

Madison Enterprise-Recorder 5A

P. L. (Leo) Baggett was
born June 2, 1936, son of Mal-
com (Mack) and Rubye
Baggett. He passed on August
31, 2009. He grew up in the St.
Andrew area of Panama City
and attended St. An-
drew Elementary
and Jinks Junior
High Schools,
graduating in
1954 from Bay
County High
School. An
athlete in
high school,
Leo earned a
football schol-
arship to Florida
State University,
where he lettered on
the 1954 1957 Seminole
teams, playing in the Sun Bowl
against UTEP, in the first-ever
FSU Florida game, and in the
Bluegrass Bowl against
Louisville. Leo graduated
from FSU but remained close
to teammates, coaches, and
classmates throughout his life.
Leo and Frances (Frandy)
Dugan of Madison, were wed
in 1958. Married for over 50
years, Leo and Frandy had
three children, Russ, Sarah,
and Anne. Following gradua-
tion, Leo went to work for Lo-
rillard, Inc., and retired from
that company as a regional
manager in 1992. During his
tenure with Lorillard, Leo
lived in many places, includ-
ing Louisville, Ky.; Knoxville,
Tenn.; Memphis, Tenn.; and
Tampa. Everywhere he went
Leo made lasting friendships
and influenced lives because
he genuinely cared about peo-
ple. That concern showed in
all he said and did.
In 1992 Leo and Frandy re-
turned to the Panama City
area and built a home in Lynn
Haven, where he soon became
active in Republican politics,
the FSU Booster Club and his
church. Retirement brought
Leo time to participate in oth-
er interests as well. He helped
his loved ones refurbish their
homes, developed his wood-
working skills, raised black
angus cattle, fished, especially
with his cousin and friend
Russell Underwood, and ar-
dently followed the activities
of his grandchildren.
A firm believer in the idea
that adults have a shared re-
sponsibility for the welfare of
all community children, Leo
was a surrogate father and
mentor to many young people.
He was a coach with peewee
football associations wherever
he went and worked in Scout-
ing. Always a devoted father,
Leo became a loving grandfa-

ther to Kendall, Paul, and Hite
Hubbuch; Katie and Bryant
Cole; step grandfather to Josh
and Jennifer Clark, and step
great-grandfather to her sons
Shane and Phoenix.
Leo was prede-
ceased by his par-
ents, Mack and
Rubye; by his
older brother,
SMalcom Jr.,

Lyn brother Greg,
and his broth-
er in la w,
Tony Atwell.
He leaves to
cherish his mem-
ory wife, Frandy of
Lynn Haven; son, Russ
of St. Andrew; daughter,
Sarah and her husband Skip
Hubbuch of Columbus, Ga.;
daughter, Anne and her hus-
band Chuck Cole of Fort My-
ers; sister, Patsy and her
husband Mike McPhail of
Jacksonville; sister, Charlotte

Smith of St. Louis, MO, and

The funeral service will be
held at Messiah Lutheran
Church, with the Reverend
Bishop Ed Benoway of Tampa
officiating, on Friday at 10
Interment will be at Oak
Ridge Cemetery in Madison at
4 p.m. In the spirit of Leo's
lifestyle, come join us in a cel-
ebration of his life in a casual,
comfortable fashion. No ties!
No one can choose the
manner of his passing; one
can only choose the way he
lives his life. Leo Baggett was
a good man. His choices insure
that his absence will leave a
hole as big as his heart in the
lives of those many people he
touched during his time on

In Memory of

Lillie B. Joseph


Mom, not a day goes by that
we don't miss you.
Little did we know that day that
God would call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
and in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you;
no you did not go alone.
A part of us went with you the day
God called you home.
We could shed tears that you are gone;
instead we smile because you lived.
You left us peaceful memories
that we'll cherish always.
Your love is still our guide,
and though we cannot see you,
we know you are always by our side.

Your children,
Eunice, Leon, Lillie Mae,
Joe Lewis and Clenon

Few organizations have more of a
charitable impact worldwide than Li-

Jones founded the organization al-
most 100 years ago, it has been dedi-
cated to serving communities and
nations with tireless dedication.
In 1974, following 30 years of ser-
vice in the United States Navy, Retired
Commander John Errickson, an avia-

work ethic and community service
commitment to the Lions, resulting in
a beneficial union that would ulti-
mately yield him an Ambassador of

that can be bestowed to a Lion and pre-
sented directly from the Lions Inter-
national President. Only 40 are
awarded worldwide among millions of
members. He also has 11 Melvin Jones
Fellowship Awards for his exemplary
service to the club.
In 1979-80, as the District Gover-
nor of the San Diego and Imperial
County Lions (District 4-L6) Errickson
provided oversight and support to
over 60 clubs, representing approxi-
mately 1700 members. Originally a

program geared to the interests or needs
of seniors.
The program for the September

from the Center for Elder Care. Pybus
specializes in aging resources, and she
will explain what services are available

Madison County's Very Fir,

From the files of The Madison Enterprise-Recorder
Turn back the clock to 1855. That was when
print journalism began in Madison County
A story written in the Sept. 5, 1969 edition of
The Madison Enterprise-Recorder by Billy Williams
tells about the first newspaper in the county:
"The Town and County of Madison had grown
large enough by 1855 to encourage the establish-
ment of the first newspaper. In March 1855, E.F.
Fields and T.B. Barefoot began printing The Madi-
son Messenger. Fields and Barefoot were described
at the time as 'practical printers and young gentle-
men of promise.'
"The new paper was to be neutral in politics and
could be subscribed to at a cost of two dollars per
year. The Tallahassee Floridian and Journal pro-
claimed that 'Madison County possesses a good deal
of wealth, and a thrifty, enterprising population,

who will no doubt take pride in giving to the new en-
terprise a liberal support.'
"In November of 1855, Fields became the sole
owner of The Messenger when he purchased Bare-
foot's share of the paper. In May 1856, Fields and The
Messenger abandoned their hitherto neutral politi-
cal policy by announcing support of the Democratic
Party. This move undoubtedly was prompted by the
worsening of relations between the North and the
South. The pro-Democrat Floridian and Journal
hailed Fields' action by announcing:
'The Madison Messenger, which has heretofore
conducted itself with sprightliness and ability, has
laid aside its mantle of neutrality, and steps upon
the political arena as one of the champions of
Democracy We welcome the advent of our new coad-
jutor in the good cause, and wish it full success in
every possible meaning of the term.'
"In December 1857, Fields sold The Messenger to

st Newspaper
WL. Perry, who pledged that the paper would re-
main Democratic in politics. Fields left Madison and
moved to Monticello, where he founded a paper
called The Family Friend. WL. Perry, who replaced
Fields as editor of The Messenger, was an adamant
supporter of Southern rights. During the period of
the crucial election of 1860, Perry published in
Madison a campaign paper called The States Rights
Advocate. It was during the editorship of Perry that
the name of the paper was changed to the Madison
Southern Messenger, and the motto, 'Be Just, and
Fear Not' adopted."

in Madison County, even into the 1950s.

First Baptist

By Kristin Finney
"Celebrate Jesus, Celebrate. He is risen, He is
God's glory is shown throughout the world.
Every rain drop and every ray of sun are a blessing
to all of the world. His is the power, the kingdom,
and the glory forever.
Sunday morning was a beautiful day in the
Lords sight. Services began with Debbie Bass
singing "I Can't Feel At Home In This World Any-
more." This was followed by Doug Finney saying
the offertory prayer. This Sunday Madison First
Baptist recognized the taking of the Lords Supper.
The scriptures that Pastor Ferrell preached are
from Hebrews 9. He spoke that Christ died without
sin so that He could break the power of sin. He took
our place in Heaven and through Him we can find
our eternal home.
The following events will be happening for
Madison First Baptist in the coming months:
There will be an AWANA workers night at 6:00 p.m
September 2. There will also be a SAM trip to St.
Marks Lighthouse on September 2. The bus will be
leaving at 9:15 a.m. To reserve your seat call Judy
Phillips (973-6555). There will be an Associational
Sunday School Training Saturday September 19th
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Also September 19th at 7:00
p.m. there will be a time of prayer for revival. We
will be having a Fall revival and at this meeting we
will share prayer for its success.
We would like to invite you to join us for our
services! Our worship schedule is as follows: Sun-
day school 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. Sunday Morning
Worship 11:00a.m.-12:00noon. Sunday Evening
Worship 6:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. followed by youth din-
ner and fellowship until 8:00 p.m. Wednesday
evening services begin at 6:00 p.m.for both the
adults and youth and lasts until 8:00 p.m.
We would like to pray this week for our winter
and fall sports teams, that the Lord will keep them
safe and on His path. We would also like to pray for
those who have began school and pray that this is a
blessed year for everyone.
God Bless!

A Brief History of Labor Day in the USA
Labor Day in the United States was born amidst a country in political
turmoil. The first Labor Day parade was sponsored by the Central Labor
Union in New York City on Tuesday, Sept. 5 1882. It included as many as
ten thousand working people. After the celebration, many other states
began to recognize the holiday.
In 1894, President Cleveland made Labor Day a holiday for federal
workers. Thus, the labor movement created Labor Day and the ensuing
celebration of the social and economic achievements by American work-
ers. To show the public the strength and spirit of the trade and labor
organizations in the community, unions planned the holiday to include a
street parade and a festival for the recreation and amusement of the
worers and their families.

Madison Enterprise-Recorder 11 A

By lony Young
Summer's officially over and the early mornings
are finally feeling pleasant. We've finished our pre-
season scouting and hung our tree stands along
well-traveled deer trails, we hope next to a mature
oak tree that'll begin dropping acorns soon. Finally
- the time of year we've been waiting for is here -
the beginning of football season, and better yet,
opening day of hunting season, specifically archery.
Archery season provides a great opportunity to
take a trophy whitetail and is arguably one of the
best times to do so, along with hunting the rut. If
you're stealthy enough and have done your home-
work, you've got a good chance of having a nice one
walk out in front of you.
Florida's divided into three hunting zones, and
you'll need to know which zone you'll be hunting in,
because season dates vary
Hunting season comes in first in the South
Hunting Zone, where archery season begins Sept. 12
and ends Oct. 11. Next up is the Central Zone, which
runs Sept. 26 Oct. 25. In the Northwest Hunting
Zone, archery season begins Oct. 17 and ends Nov.
To hunt during archery season, you'll need a
Florida hunting license and an archery permit.
If you're a Florida resident, a hunting license
costs $17. Nonresidents may pay $46.50 for a 10-day
license or $151.50 for 12 months. The archery permit
costs $5 for in-state and out-of-staters.
Anyone planning to hunt one of Florida's many
wildlife management areas (WMAs) must purchase
a management area permit for $26.50.
All of these licenses and permits are available
at county tax collectors' offices, retail outlets that
sell hunting and fishing supplies, or by calling, toll-
free, 888-HUNT-FLORIDA or clicking www.wildlife
The most common game to take during archery
season are deer and wild hog. During this period,

aeer o01 either sex are legal game, regaraiess of01
antler size (except for spotted fawns). The daily bag
limit on deer is two. Bag limits on WMAs can differ,
so consult the area's brochure first.
Wild hogs aren't considered game animals on
private lands and with landowner permission -
can be hunted year-round with no bag or size limits.
On most WMAs, there's no bag or size limits, and
hogs are legal to take during any hunting season ex-
cept spring turkey On a few WMAs, limits do apply,
so again, check the area brochure.
In addition to hunting big game, it's also legal to
shoot gobblers and bearded turkeys during archery
season. You can take only one per day, and there's a
two-bird fall-season limit. It's against the law to
hunt turkeys in Holmes County during this period,
and you can't shoot turkeys while they're on the
roost, over bait, while using dogs, when you're with-
in 100 yards of a game-feeding station when feed is
present or with the aid of recorded turkey calls.
If you're quite the marksman, gray squirrel,
quail and rabbit are three other species legal to take
during archery season, and there's a daily bag limit
of 12 for each.
Only bows may be used during archery season -
no crossbows allowed, except for hunters with a dis-
abled crossbow permit. Bows must have a mini-
mum draw weight of 35 pounds, and hand-held
releases are permitted. For hunting deer, hog and
turkey, broadheads must have at least two sharp-
ened edges with a minimum width of 7/8 inch.
Legal shooting hours are a half-hour before sun-
rise to a half-hour after sunset. Except for turkeys,
you're permitted to take resident game over corn or
soybeans on private land. It's against the law to use
such feed on WMAs.
Some things you can't do during archery season
include possessing firearms, using explosive or
drug-injecting arrows, using bows equipped with
electronic computational or laser sights and pos-

Tony Young
sessing a bow on an airboat in Miami-Dade County.
You can't use dogs to hunt deer or hogs during
archery season, but you can use bird dogs if quail
hunting. Otherwise, the only time you can have a
dog in the woods while hunting is when it's on a
leash and you're using it to trail wounded game.
Here's hoping all your preparation and persis-
tence pay off and wishing you luck on taking that
monster buck. As always, have fun, hunt safely and
ethically, and we'll see you in the woods!
