Madison County High School is getting excellent participation in its new
study hall program, which currently includes over 200 athletes in the three-

To support and enhance this
effort, Athletic Director Mike
Coe is incorporating class-
room recognition with the
athletic recognition provided
in the form of awarding
"PRIDE" stickers to varsity

the White House staff had concerns
about the preparedness of health offi-

vaccines out into their communities.
She said the White House staff was
particularly concerned whether rural
communities had the resources and
wherewithal to carry out a massive in-

in part her invitation to the series of

On September 23 at 10 a.m., residents and friends of Greenville will join the

F Editor's Note: What follows is a letter
that was sent out to residents of the Town of Lee
about a public hearing on a proposed wastewater
system on Tuesday evening, Sept. 22. The letter
indicates (based on early projected numbers
which could change when everything is final)
that the new system could cost residents $58-$67
per month (including water and sewer). It also
says that residents who fall in the low to moder-
ate income range will be provided free water
hook-ups. Those who don't fall in that range will
have to demolish their septic tanks and hook up
to the system themselves. The moderate income
range, if I remember correctly, was $39,900 a year
That would eliminate a lot of people in Lee from
being eligible for free hook-up and put an extra
burden on the consumer While I agree that there
are many people in Lee who need the sewer sys-
tem, the costs seem to be too prohibitive with the
early projections. I would be for the system if
everyone in Lee qualified for the free hookup and
it added very little to the water bill (which mine
runs about $24 per month). I urge everyone, for
and against the proposed system, to attend the
public hearing and voice their concerns on Tues-
day, Sept. 22, at 7p.m. Jacob Bembry, Editor

Dear Resident,
The Lee Town Council is considering an is-
sue that will impact each member of our com-
munity This letter is written to invite you to
attend a public hearing scheduled for Septem-
ber 22nd at 7 p.m. at Lee City Hall to discuss the
project, its cost, and the scope of the work.
Let's begin with the issue being considered:
development of a waste-water collection and
transmission system (city sewer). This consid-
eration is a result of numerous requests from
our community Residents expressed concern
over their failing septic tanks. Trailer Park
owners requested approval to upgrade from mo-
bile homes to duplexes, and others wanted to
know why the town couldn't attract businesses
to create jobs and provide conveniences for the
community Those are the reasons the project
was initiated.
The Town Council has been pursuing this
project for several years. In 2007 the town re-
ceived a grant for $400,000 to pay for all the en-
gineering and design required to construct the
sewer system. The initial project was in excess
of $13 million dollars. In an attempt to reduce
the construction cost, the town entered into an
inter-local agreement with the City of Madison.
This agreement reduced the project cost by
eliminating the need to purchase land for the
construction of a waste treatment facility and
the need to hire additional employees, because
Madison will process the town's waste water.
The project cost was reduced to $5.2 million
dollars, which was too much for the town to ex-
pend, so the project was set aside until grant
funding became available. In May the town was
awarded a grant for $3,474,900. An additional
$1,215,100 dollar loan was required so a State Re-
volving Loan was applied for at an interest rate
of 2.98% for 30 years. Another grant has been
applied for which will cover the additional
$552,000. necessary to begin construction. A re-
quirement of the grant is to have all the engi-
neering, permitting, and contracts in place by
September 23rd.
What is required of you and how will you be
impacted? The areas that will be affected are
Service Areas 1,2, 4,and 5 (you will note these
areas on the map that has been enclosed) The
waste water lines will not extend into Pine
Trace, due to the cost to extend the lines in this
area. In the areas stated, waste water lines will
be constructed and connection to the system
will be required for those who can gravity feed
to the main line. This will require your septic
tank to be pumped, crushed, filled with sand,
and a connection made to the pipe that once
connected to your septic tank. This pipe will
then run to the main service line. The cost for
these activities will vary due to the circum-
stances; density of trees, distance, and other ob-
stacles. The Town of Greenville stated that
connection costs for their project was approxi-
mately $1,200; however, the Town of Lee's engi-
neer provided an estimate of approximately
$2,500. per household. Residents whose income
is in the low to moderate income brackets will
be provided hook-ups at no cost through a

It may sound absurd...but don't be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed...but won't you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream
It's not easy to be me...
"Superman," Five for Fighting
Sometimes, I feel like I'm Superman. I'm ready to
take on and conquer the world. After all, I'm told in the
Bible that "I can do all things through Christ who
strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)
A day at the news desk convinces me that I still have
a long ways to go to reach perfection. I'm like Peter who
sank in the water when he took his eyes off Jesus. I'm
thrashing about trying to keep from drowning.
Works piles up on me and I find myself drowning, re-
alizing that I am only mortal Clark Kent and not the Man
of Steel. There are stories to write, telephones to answer,
leads to chase, stories to edit. It's not easy being Clark
Kent or Perry White or whoever I'm supposed to be.
Then, I remember that Jesus did not let Peter drown.
He reached down His hand and pulled Peter up from the
raging water. Time and again, He reaches down and pulls
me up, puts me back on my feet and I look to Heaven and
off I go.
Look. Up in the sky It's a bird. It's a plane. It's Super-
man.. .Nope. It's just Jacob, a mere mortal

Madison Enterprise-Recorder 3A

AMr. Mr
Mr. a4,t& Mrs.,

Looking for ways to increase your money as we
head into the Fall season? Consider the following
ideas that Rutgers Extension Financial Specialist,
Barbara O'Neil suggests will get you on the right
track. It's short, but following the suggestions will
help increase your bottom line.
Build An Emergency Fund Set aside at least
three to six months expenses as a reserve for the un-
expected. Although interest rates are low, shop
around and look into a money market fund to earn
better return. Start by putting a set amount of mon-
ey away each week. Try different strategies, save all
of your coins or deposit the money in a savings ac-
count when you get your pay check.
Chip Away at Debt Set a goal to pay off a loan
or credit care balance by a certain date. If you have
many debts, consider paying off the smaller bal-
ances first and roll the payment. Contact the Madi-
son Extension office for a PowerPay analysis to I
accelerate debt repayment.
Bank a Windfall Save a bonus or tax refund tes
instead of spending it. It can become the emergency
fund you have been trying to set up.
Shop around for goods and services This
includes the purchase or use of home contractors,
insurance policies, credit cards and banking ser-
vices. Use the "Rule of Three" and compare at least
three providers with criteria such as cost and expe-
Keep good records Set up a simple system if
you don't already have one. Purchase an inexpen-
sive home filing system with labels and file folders.
Track your monthly income and record expenses,
making adjustments if you need to reduce spending.
For more information on money management,
contact the Madison County Extension Service.

I wrote the following poem at a
time when the Iraqi War was raging.
The present war in Afghanistan may
not have all the dramatic effects of
that one but it seems to be taking more
precious young lives than the first.
They may have been our future Ein-
steins, Edisons, Wrights, Whitmans,
or even, Heaven forbid, politicians.
And, who was it who said, "I know
where Bin Laden is and I will get
him," and how long ago has that been?

By Thelma Thompson

We saw this lovely planet's skies
Fill with technicolored war;
From a smoke -filled background
Of burning oil rose colors of red-
Blood and danger-yellow
Cowardice, treachery, terrorism-
Green, jealousy and greed-
War brings a terrible beauty
To a world entranced
By the deadly allure of its siren
Patrons of the art called war
Sat enthralled in front row TV
As an amazing high drama
On a world stage of huge
Mechanized military cavalry
Rolled quickly crost deserts sands
While overhead were birds of war,
Tomahawk missiles, mushroom
Black Hawks and Stealths ruled
the night-
Terrible but beautiful r -

Of laser lightning arced!

Added 'shock and awe' to an
audience numb
From the spectacular intensity
The precision and accuracy,
Of the drama called "War."
Outside this theater of war
World citizens, confused, milled
As rumors flew. While inside on
The war shed its coat of beauty-
The siren has ensnared its victim
And become again the ugly
On the huge stage, before
A confused and bewildered
Lay a war-torn and desolated land-
The shimmering sands, the
wailing winds,
The storms of dust so strong and
Now cloud the depth of
The war is over-a terrible price
was paid;
The White Horse that is America
The blood-stained from hoof to
Is a symbol of hope
To tyrant ruled lands,
But how high the price of
And is it worth that price
When the feeding hand is bitten
By the ungrateful dog
As soon as his chain is broken;
A question now remains
How can the peace be won?

CDBG grant. Those who do not qualify for grant funding
will be able to hire a contractor to connect to the system
or they may do the work themselves. The Health Depart-
ment is waiving all permit fees for those connecting dur-
ing construction of the project.
Regarding costs, here are the estimated monthly
costs currently in hand. Please note these are estimates
as the council has not awarded construction contracts.
The only cost figures, as with the estimates for septic sys-
tem crushing noted above, are broad general estimates.
We have been told that actual costs may come in lower, but
again, we regret this final figure will not be known until
only a few days before deadline. This was unavoidable.
Waste water rates are based on the gallons of water
utilized per month, for example:
43000 gallons of water- $22.74
34000 gallons of wastewater- $3619
Total bill $58.93
5,000 gallons of water- $26.48
5,000 gallons of waste water- $41.23
Total- $67.71
Council has not determined if they will go forward
with this project because they want community input.
These are difficult times, and an extra monthly bill may
not be in your budget; but the community must make a
choice. The choice you make will affect the future of the
town so it must be thoughtfully considered.
The grant funding to pay for the project is an oppor-
tunity A grant in this amount for waste water is rare. If
this grant is returned, the funding source (the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection) will not provide an-
other. If the town should pursue a waste water project at
a later date, the residents may have to carry the entire
Economic Development does not happen without in-
frastructure (roads, water & sewer) and businesses will
not locate in a community without it. How many conve-
niences (stores, banks, etc.) do communities have that
don't have a water and waste-water system? If a commu-
nity won't invest in itself; why would a business?
Over the past several years, concern has been ex-
pressed regarding the adverse condition and proper
drainage of septic systems, which has been made all the
worse by the high water table in the area. This has been
especially bad following the flood because in order for sep-
tic systems to perform properly from an environmental
standpoint, the drain field can't be overrun with water.
They will still flush, but they don't filter properly through
the soil and contaminate nearby ground water.
Water quality has become a priority for Florida and
more stringent guidelines for septic systems have been es-
tablished. Residents can anticipate additional state regu-
These are the items under consideration, so the ques-
tion remains, do you feel the Town of Lee should con-
struct the sewer lines while funding is available?
The Town Council wants to hear from you. If you are
unable to attend the meeting, you can still voice you opin-
ion. It will take less than 5 minutes of your time to call
city hall and say either yes you would like waste water
within the city limits; or no you are not interested. Please
attend the meeting of September 22nd for more informa-
tion or call 971-5867.

the annual "Brake Safety Week 2009 / Operation Air
The objective of Operation Air Brake is to help
drivers and mechanics understand the importance of
proper brake inspection, maintenance and opera-
The theme of this year's "Brake Safety Week
Why does the FDOT OMCC
take part in this event?
The braking systems on commercial vehicles are
complicated and contain many parts, all of which
need constant inspection and attention to ensure
proper operation and performance.
Brakes are what enable the vehicle to stop and
they are vital to its safe operation.
Over the years, the National Transportation
Safety Board has investigated a number of high-pro-
file commercial vehicle crashes and identified that
problems associated with brake operation, inspec-
tion and / or maintenance contributed to the crash-
Results from the 2006 USDOT Large Truck Cau-
sation Study indicated that brakes were a factor in
over 29 percent of all the crashes investigated.
By far, brakes comprise the largest percentage of
commercial vehicles being placed out of service. Vi-
olations citied during roadside inspections are over
The Tallahassee and Lake City Field Offices of
the OMCC will be conducting brake inspections / en-
forcement at the weigh stations within these areas.
The Tallahassee Field Office will have officers con-
ducting inspections / enforcement at the Madison
Weigh Station on Interstate 10 in Madison County
The Lake City Field Office will have officers conduct-
ing inspections / enforcement at the White Springs
Weigh Station on Interstate 75 near the state line.
Educational material will be given to drivers
during each inspection, and placed at truck stops in
the area of the weigh stations for drivers to review.
Education and awareness is another tool in helping
keep our highways safe.
The FDOT OMCC is committed to highway safe-

ipation we're getting. Athletes understand that they
must perform on and off the field," Coe noted.
Athletes are required to attend these new study
halls each of the three days they are offered before
they can attend practice. Impressively, they also
practice two days a week at 6 a.m., before school
Coe has brought various research regarding
best practices for athletic scholarship, recognizing
that both are essential to future success. Most of all
though, he and his fellow coaches realize that care
and encouragement are the real recipe for success.
Last year, Head Coach Frankie Carroll was
named by USA Today as Most Caring Coach of The
Year. Demonstrating that role models are as impor-
tant as trophy winners, all agree the Cowboys are
displaying pride on and off the field.

vaccinations of the community's most H1N1 vulnerable
members: the very young, pregnant women and those
with medical conditions.
"It was quite an experience," Barnhill said. "The
neatest thing was to interact with them (White House
staff) and know that you're helping to develop health
policy at the national level. It was the most interesting
thing that I've done in my professional career."
Barnhill said that others attending the two-day
conference included personnel from the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency (FEMA), Homeland Secu-
rity and a staffer who reported directly to President
Barack Obama. She said that beyond the topics of pre-
paredness and the specific preparations for the H1N1
vaccination campaign, the group discussed the distri-
bution of the vaccines on tribal lands, the regular sea-
sonal influenza and other health-related issues.
"This is a big project for everyone to undertake,"
Barnhill said of the vaccination campaign. "There
will be challenges ahead. One thing that you can count
on is that the virus will change.
She said one of the things that she and the other
health officers were able to impress on the federal offi-
cials was that a big component of the fight against the
influenza, other than the vaccines, was public aware-
ness about good hygienic habits and other practices
that could prevent contagion. These steps, which
health officials have been diligently emphasizing lo-
cally, include the regular washing of the hands, avoid-
ing sick people and staying home if one contracts the
Barnhill said she expected the Jefferson Health
Department will receive its first allotment of the vac-
cine by the first of October and will begin its inocula-
tion campaign soon after. She cautioned, however, that
the vaccines likely would be in short supply at first, as
the product is being produced outside the country and
is being shipped "in waves". Consequently, health offi-
cials will concentrate their initial efforts on the most
at-risk persons, which are the very young and preg-
nant women.
"It's a rather mild virus so far, except for the at-risk
category, which is the very young and pregnant
women," Barnhill said. "Babies are dying, but we can't
vaccinate anyone under six months, so we're focusing
on pregnant women."
She said those 65 and older would be included in
the vaccinations eventually, but not at first. She said this
particular age group wasn't as susceptible to the H1N1
flu, either because they had been exposed to a similar
strain of the virus earlier in their lives and had devel-
oped immunity to it, or because at some point they had
received a flu shot that protected them against the virus.
"We'll have an ample supply of the vaccine for the
over 65 age group, but they will not be included in the
first wave," Barnhill said.
She encourage this group, however, to get the regu-
lar influenza shot, which her department will begin dis-
pensing on Sept. 14.
As for the H1N1 flu, Barnhill confirmed that Flori-
da now had 77 deaths from the disease and that it was al-
ready in Jefferson County
"We know that if someone has influenza, it's H1N1,"
Barnhill said. "It's pushed out every other strain of
virus. If you get the flu, it's 99 percent certain that it's the
H1N1 influenza, and anyone with underlying health con-
ditions needs to take special precautions."

The Madison Youth Initiative kicked off with a flag football league at MCHS on Saturday, August 5, with the support of many who share the common goal of
bringing constructive activities to the youth of Madison County.

Madison Youth Initiative Kicks Off

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
"There isn't anything for kids to do
in Madison," is a common complaint
from parents, educators, health officials
and clergy alike, not to mention the kids.
Additionally, all are aware that idle
hands seldom search for constructive
tasks, so there is perhaps no greater good
that can be offered for the future of
Madison County- in concert with a good
education than filling those hands.
It is with this goal in mind that the

Madison Youth Initiative was launched
on Saturday, August 5, at Madison Coun-
ty High School. Throughout the year, the
program, which is directed by Adrian
"A.D." Kinsey, a local business owner and
educator, is slated to offer a variety of ac-
tivities designed to help youth thrive.
Community leadership and youth
advocates from around the county have
pledged support for the program, many
of who were present to kick off the first
activity: flag football. Four teams, each
named for Florida collegiate programs -

Seminoles, Gators, Rattlers and Hurri-
canes took the field at Boot Hill for a
morning of exercise and fun.
Ted Ensminger from the Madison
County Chamber of Commerce and
Tourism, Jerry Alexander of D.A.R.E.,
Doug Freer of the Health Department's
Tobacco Free Madison and Merv Mat-
tair, author and youth advocate, among
others, spoke to the youth in attendance,
reminding them that adults are available
to help and encourage them. Mattair in-
troduced a number of parallels between

life and team sports that particularly
Kinsey was appreciative of the
parental and community support at the
kick-off. He is also looking forward to ac-
quiring a permanent facility for the pro-
ject in the near future. For more
information and to enroll a child in the
program, phone Adrian Kinsey at (850)

Mason Fund Back By Popular Demand

The membership of the Madison Freemasons
has included many of those credited with building
and bettering Madison County for the last 150 years.
And, despite the theatrical representations and of-

for decades to come.
One such contribution is the scholarship fund it
has established with North Florida Community Col-
lege, which it launched from proceeds of its month-

Help Seniors


Tax Season
By Bryant Thigpen
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)
program of the United Way recently announced that
as of the 2010 tax season, VITA will be offering free
tax assistance to senior citizens at the Senior Citi-
zens Center in Madison. In order for United Way to
offer this program for seniors, VITA is in search of
local residents who will step up and volunteer next
tax season.
One might say, "I want to help, but I know noth-
ing about taxes." That's no problem. On Saturday,
December 12, IRS trainers will be in Madison at the
Senior Citizens Center to train volunteers for the
upcoming tax season.
This is the first year that United Way will be in
Madison every Saturday during tax season. VITA is
looking for 10-15 residents that will step up and help
the seniors with taxes.
VITA is also searching for one individual who
will be a site coordinator. The coordinator will be re-
sponsible for overseeing the site each Saturday
Anyone interested in volunteering for this pro-
ject is encouraged to call Stephanie Cornais at (850)
488-8342, or the Senior Citizens Center at (850) 973-
4241. For more information about the project, please

ly breakfast fundraiser, the most recent of which
was held on August 5 and its lodge in downtown
Worshipful Master Roy Hibbs which again, is
a fraternal and not a religious title along with his
lovely wife Ali and several helpers, first launched
the program earlier this year. When the program
concluded, two scholarships were awarded from the
proceeds. Now, several months later, the program is
back by popular demand and will continue on the
first Saturday of each month until further notice,
starting at 7 a.m. at the Madison Lodge.
Mason and non-Masons are invited to attend. In
fact, local leadership is hopeful that visitors will
drop by and take the opportunity to learn more
about the organization many agree helped launch
the nation. This year, the local lodges Madison
Lodge No. 11 F&AM and Greenville Lodge No. 28
F&AM are especially proud that one of its standout
members, Right Worshipful John Sirmon, is serving
as District Deputy Grand Master. Many outside the

fraternity already know him and his family, while
others met him during the recent golf tournament
he organized at Madison Country Club to raise funds
for Alzheimer's research.
Masonry is dedicated to making good men bet-
ter, and although this may sound grand to some, it is
a dedication to be taken as seriously as family or mil-
itary service. Of course, as noted, it is also about
community and camaraderie, so the brotherhood is
hopeful the entire community will accept an invita-
tion to attend various local Masonic and Shrine (all
Shriners are first Masons) events, including the

"Behind Closed Doors" Held On Courthouse Lawn

Refuge House, Inc. is requesting
your presence at a Domestic Violence
Awareness Event on Tuesday, October
13, 2009 at 5 p.m., on the Courthouse
Lawn. The program is titled: "Behind
Closed Doors" Breaking the Silence in
Rural Communities. We extend a special
invitation to all domestic violence sur-
vivors and family members of victims to
please attend the event.
Refuge House opened its doors in
1979. The following year it merged with
the Tallahassee Rape Crisis Center and
became the leader in community efforts
to assist women and children by provid-
ing direct services to victims of Domes-
tic violence, their children, and
survivors of sexual assault. Our mis-
sion and purpose is to provide direct ser-
vices to battered women, their children
and survivors of sexual violence, as well
as to work to eliminate the conditions in
society that allows such violence to con-
Refuge House provides a safe emer-
gency shelter for women and children

escaping domestic violence, individual
and group counseling for victims and
their families, 24-hour crisis hotline,
support for family, friends, and signifi-
cant others of domestic violence and
sexual violence, victim advocacy and in-
tervention, injunction for protection fil-
ing assistance, court preparation and
support services, and hospital emer-
gency counseling response. Refuge
House also offers a community educa-
tion program and professional training
on domestic violence and sexual vio-
lence. If any business, agency, church,
club, civic group, school, or etc wishes to
have a counselor to come out and pre-
sent a program and/or training you may
call (850) 973-4144. All services are free

tect the residents. Transportation is

provided for Madison County residents.
You may reach a counselor at
Refuge House in Madison County at 973-
4144. The 24 hour crisis hotline is 1-800-
Most people find it hard to believe
that a woman being treated in a hospital
emergency room is more likely to have
been injured by her husband or
boyfriend than by anyone or anything
else. But she is. An estimated two mil-
lion women are severely assaulted by
male partners in the United States each
Seeing her black eyes and swollen
lip, most observers ask, "Why doesn't
she just pack her bags and leave?" The
answer is not a simple one. He may have
threatened to kill her if she tries to
leave, or call the police. Perhaps he has
threatened to hurt the children, to kid-
nap them, to withhold child support, or
vowed to tell social service workers that
she is an unfit mother and have the chil-

dren taken away
In addition, the victim may be fi-
nancially dependent upon her abuser.
She may feel guilty that the abuse is her
fault. She may still love him. She may
lack coping skills due to years of abuse.
Faced with all of this, in addition to
a hostile or cool reception from the sys-
tem convinces the victim that there is no
real escape, no way out. She tries hard-
er to please him. The victim may cut-off
communication with family and friends
because of the batter's control over her
activities; she may begin to blame her-
self for the situation. Eventually, she
blocks out the pain, she minimizes the
beatings or denies they are even hap-
Meanwhile, the batterer increases
his abuse when necessary, and stalks her
or threatens to kill her if she attempts to
leave. And the cycle continues......

with domestic violence please call:

God's word on repen-

shared that we should

Going to church is a
visible, tangible expres-
sion of our love and wor-
ship toward God. It is
where we can gather with
other believers to pub-
licly bear witness of our
faith and trust in God,
something that is re-
quired of all Christians
(Matt. 10:32-33) and it is
where we can bring Him
offerings of praise, |
thanks, and honor, which
are pleasing to Him. The
psalmist wrote, "I will de-
clare Your name to My
brethren; In the midst of
the assembly I will praise
You" (Psa. 22:22). People
are often motivated to-
ward church attendance
for how it will bless them-
selves, however we
should remember that
the primary purpose of
the corporate gathering
is to bring "service" to
the Lord as a blessing to
Him (Psa. 134:2). Indeed,
the Lord is deserving of
our time and energy to
honor Him with our ser-
vice of devotion. "You are
worthy, O Lord, To re-
ceive glory and honor and
power; For You created all
things, And by Your will
they exist and were creat-
ed" (Rev 4:11).
(2) It builds up our
Spiritual Strength RvobtEL
Receiving the preach-
ing and teaching of the
Word of God increases
our faith and builds us up
spiritually Every believer
knows what it is to face
spiritual conflicts to their
faith, and must realize
the importance of being
fed spiritually so that
they can overcome the
challenges. Paul states
that Christians face a
wrestling match with the
Devil and his evil spiritu-
al forces, and warns that
the church must put on
spiritual armor for pro-
tection, as it will take
everything at our dispos-
al to stand (Eph. 6:10-18).
How important that we
take every opportunity
available to receive min-
istry and strength from
God's Word. "So then
faith comes by hearing,
and hearing by the word
of God" (Rom. 10:17).

this system of account-
ability for the progress
and protection of His

ly isn't possible unless we
are a part of an organized
fellowship, which has
identified elders, pastors,
or leaders. It is easy to see
that one cannot genuine-
ly be under submission to
a TV pastor who has nev-

sible to be under
submission by visiting a

week. The Bible tells us to

By Edwin B. Browning, Sr.
Used by permission
of his estate; reprinted
from The North Florida
From the dawn of
antiquity to the present,
mankind has shown a
great deal of persistence
and ingenuity in produc-
ing alcoholic beverages.
Purely, as information
and because it is part of
our North Florida
Scene, we are offering
information on alcoholic
Madison County by
popular vote abolished
the legal sale of whiskey
and other beverages
with strong alcohol con-
tent on August 23, 1906.
This included the open
barrooms, which had op-
erated as legitimate, li-
censed businesses for
many years. Then (the
county) issued a period
when whiskey could be
brought in from the out-
side and from across
state lines from areas
where the states were
still "wet" to use a slang
The largest influx of
liquor, however, came
from shipping it by ex-
press. I can recall the at-
tractive liquor
catalogues that were
mailed out all over the
North Florida Scene.
Jacksonville seems to
have been a point for the
distribution of large
amounts of whiskey and
other alcoholic drinks.
Some came from the
Commonwealth of Ken-
tucky so well known for
its high-grade liquors.
The advertisements sent
out to lure customers

were most attractive. I
recall one from Solomon
Schad that broke into
poetry ran as follows:
'All through Christ-
mas you'll be glad,
If you buy your
whiskey from Solomon
All through Christ-
mas you'll be mad,
If you don't buy
your liquor from
Solomon Schad."
Quite evidently, the
express agencies opened
up the whiskey business
so that it could be
brought to every home.
Abuses mounted high; I
think it was around 1915
that a distinguished
Madison County Sena-
tor, Charles E. Davis,
was able to pass a law
known as "The Davis
Package Law." This law
drastically reduced the
quantity down to a quart
per month that any per-
son could order.
By this time, Geor-
gia had gone dry, and the
imbibers from across
the line rushed down to
order vast quantities of
liquor using bogus
names. This whiskey
came to nearby express
offices, notably Lovett.
But the law was very
wise and did limit the
amount of whiskey con-
sumed considerably. It
also helped greatly in
training law enforce-
ment officers for actual
prohibition, which came
nationally in 1918 I re-
call under the Volstead
Then, particularly, if
you listen to the advo-
cates of whiskey, was
ushered in the age of
"Blind Tigers" and

gangster rum runners.
Actually, the people who
brought the people who
brought the Prohibition
Amendment began to
rest on their laurels and
the Volstead Act was re-
pealed as an early New
Deal measure. This
threw the issue of open
sale back to the counties.
Madison has always re-
mained since 1906 -
technically dry
But many people
were independent of
"store bought" liquor.
These were the people
who were so inclined
and who exercised their
ingenuity in some
preparations of alco-
holic drinks. The kinds
of beverages which were
home produced were
very broad indeed. Be-
fore the freeze of around
1890, oranges were flour-
ishing all over the North
Florida Scene.
There is an entry in
an old church minute
book which shows that a
certain brother was ex-
communicated for "mak-
ing and drinking too
much wine." I have
heard old-timers who
had personal experience
say that orange wine
was rather delicious to
the taste, and left very
little to be desired in its
stimulating effects.
When late May and
early June came each
year, the briar-berries
literally covered much
of the North Florida
landscape. There were
the days of rail fences
which zig-zagged around
the fields. In the fence
"jams" flourished enor-
mous quantities of these
berries. The process of

turning them into wine
was very simple. You
simple put them in a
stone, glass or wooden
container, added a small
amount of sweetener
and water and allowed
the natural process of
fermentation to take
over. After a few days,
the seeds were strained
out and more sweeten-
ing was added and
process of fermentation
was repeated. This could
go on indefinitely, de-
pending on how strong
the person wanted the
wine to be.
After the fermenta-
tion was completed, the
wine was stored, prefer-
ably in wooden vessels,
for aging. Here is where
it took on quality and
"body," to use a then-op-
erative phrase. With
some variations as to
procedures, alcoholic
beverages could be made

from peaches, huckle-
berries, grapes and oth-
er items with a sugar or
starch content. Cane
beer was rather widely
used and its results were
a kind of first cousin to
However, the old
granddaddy of them all
was corn. It could be
used in the whole
grain, or cracked for
hominy. If cracked, the
fermentation time was
cut down considerably.
Its end product was
known as "corn buck"
and it provided a terrif-
ic wallop.
At times and par-
ticularly during the De-
pression there was a
rather large volume of
home run whiskey
known as "moonshine."
The corn buck, or other
beverage, was boiled in a
copper pot and the steam
run off under water in a

copper pipe. Out of the
condensation, came
moonshine. It was
known far and wide for
its almost atomic effects.
At times, lesser
drinks were made at
home. Does anyone re-
member California Beer
Seed? This was, I sup-
pose, a form of yeast
that multiplied over
night and produced a
mildly stimulating
drink purely for home
use, as it had no com-
mercial value. There
was home-brew, a bit
stronger than California
beer, but still practically
harmless as compared to
good grape wine, or
In closing, allow me
to say that in my judg-
ment, alcohol has always
tended to be associated
with tragedy, mild or
stark, here as over the
entire world.

Kids Meet Beau Turner

During Hunter Safety Course

By Nicole and Cody Little
Guest writers of Greene
Publishing, Inc.
Nicole (14) and Cody
(13) Little took their
Hunter's Safety Course
at the Beau Turner
Youth Conservation Cen-
ter in Jefferson County
on Sept. 11 13, along
with about 15 others, and
both successfully passed.
George Handley con-
ducted the class, which
Nicole and Cody report
about as follows:
"We were very excit-
ed when our mom signed
us up for our Hunter's
Safety Class. We both
love to go hunting and
we wanted to learn more
about it. On our first
night, Sept. 11, we lis-
tened to an FWC Officer
explain some laws on
guns & hunting.
"On Saturday, Sept.
12, our instructor, Mr.
George, went over every-
thing about hunting
with us, from gun safety

to first aid. Then we had
to take a 100-question
test. At this point we
were both very nervous.
Although we listened
and learned a lot, we
were scared we wouldn't
pass. (Nicole made an 87
and Cody made an 86. An
80 or better was required
to pass.) After passing
our test we were very ex-
cited and couldn't wait
until the next day.
"On Sunday, Sept. 13,
we were required to go to
the shooting range and
shoot a 20-gauge shot-
gun, a .22 rifle, and a bow
and arrow. Although nei-
ther one of us were able
to hit skeet, we still had
lots of fun. At the .22 rifle
range, Cody hit his target
every time and Nicole
only missed once, again
we had a blast. Last of
all, we shot bow and ar-
row. We were each given
five arrows. Cody hit the
target four times and
Nicole two times. Cody

is much better at shoot-
ing a bow then his sister,
because he practices at
home all the time.
The best part was
that our younger brother
Zachary Little (8) was
able to go with us to the
shooting range. He ap-
peared more excited
then we were. Every
time the instructor
asked, "Who's Next?"
Zachary would raise his
hand and say "Me, Me!"
He had to wait until
every one from the class
was finished before he
could shoot though. He
shot the 20-gauge three
times with help from our
instructor, Mr. George.
At the rifle range,
Zachary shot a .22 rifle
five times. Zachary said
he couldn't wait until he
was old enough to come
back and take the
Hunter's Safety Course.
On the last day of
our class on Sunday, after
we were all done shoot-

ing, we met Mr. Beau
Turner, the son of me-
dia giant, Ted Turner.
We were really tickled
over that. It was awe-

"We would like to en-
courage anyone who has
not taken his or her
Hunter's Safety Course
to do so. We learned a lot
and had a great time.

Cody has signed up for
the advanced archery
class in October because
he is interested in learn-
ing more about Bow
Hunting. "

It's hurricane season
and Florida residents need to
be prepared.
Between 1851 and 2006,
the state was battered by
some 113 hurricanes, includ-
ing 37 major storms measur-
ing Category 3, 4 or 5. No
other state comes close when
you consider the overall hur-
ricane landfalls and major
storm totals.
However, hurricanes and
tropical storms can bring in
species of birds we normally
wouldn't have the opportunity
to see.
'As Hurricane Ike
passed to the south of us in
September 2008, I saw birds
at Crandon Beach you
wouldn't normally see from
shore," said Roberto "Toe"
Torres, a birder from Miami.
"There were sooty shearwa-
ters just off the breakers and
many common and black
terns, resting on the beach.
A few brown noddy were fly-
ing just over the shore, and a
Pomarine jaeger made a pass
over the beach.
"But, the most amazing
of all was the flock of about
15 white-winged scoters that
came by right over the break-
ers," Torres said.
Torres was also at Black
Point Marina on Biscayne
Bay when Hurricane Dennis

came through in July 2005.
This area is about eight miles
from the barrier keys and the
open water of the Atlantic.
"In between the squall
lines, there were hundreds of
sooty terns and frigatebirds
riding the storm. While we
normally get a few frigates
over the bay, sooty terns are
almost always seen far off-
shore in the Gulfstream
down here," Torres said.
"I've been out on the water
down here for most of my
life, and I'd never seen so
many pelagic (ocean-going)
birds in one area."
Unusual birds can also
be found far inland after
storms. According to Rex
Rowan, a birder in
Gainesville, coastal and
pelagic birds may be seen af-
ter nearly every hurricane.
"The pelagic species that
seems to turn up most regu-
larly is sooty tern. Others fre-
quently seen include
common terns and laughing
gulls. Our most exciting
stray was a black-capped pe-
trel found in Newnans Lake
in September 2004 after Hur-
ricane Jeanne. However, the
American oystercatcher that
Hurricane Gordon blew onto
Newnans Lake in September
2000 was pretty mind-blow-
ing as well," Rowan said.
Other birds spot-
I ted in the Gainesville
area after storms in-
clude a Leach's storm
petrel and a red
phalarope that came
in after Tropical
Storm Fay in August
2008. A magnificent
ggr frigatebird, a Hud-
sonian godwit, least
terns, black terns,
Forester's terns, roy-
al terns and sand-

wich terns as well as black
skimmers, Pomarine jaegers
and parasitic jaegers also
have been spotted around the
Gainesville area.
If you're thinking about
chasing these "hurricane
birds," consider a few tips
from those birders who have
experience. First of all, don't
even think about heading to
the coast. That's where the
worst damage is, and you
will probably have a nearly
impossible time getting onto
the islands. Security officers
probably will not let you in,
and fallen wires and trees
will also be a barrier. Those
storm-blown birds will likely
move quickly back out to
Also, don't attempt to
drive while it's still dark.
There is the temptation to be
at a lake before dawn if the
hurricane's eye passed near
the lake overnight. Fallen
trees and downed wires don't
have lights, and you can't ex-
pect utility crews to have
cleared away trees before
Find as large a lake as
you can near the eye of the
hurricane. Birds head for
large bodies of water, or even
wet parking lots that look
like water. Get to the lakes as
soon as it's safe after the
storm passes. The birds often
leave quickly
Enjoy the birding oppor-
tunity, but remember to be
safe after a storm. Don't take
chances in your quest to add
to your life list.
As destructive as these
storms are, taking the oppor-
tunity to watch the rare visi-
tors they herd our way can
help us turn the experience
around and cope with the
