cent of Florida schools -
the high school received
a poor grade on its FCAT

challenges.
In order to maximize
the pace of progress,
school officials realize
that improvements will
require community co-
operation. After all,
every part of the com-

in the outcome, as the

Deputy Saves Child's Life

Madison County
Sheriff's Cpl. Maurice
Alexander has been rec-
ommended for a commen-
dation by Sheriff's Sgt.
Dennis Pitts after Alexan-
der rescued a boy who
was locked in a running
washing machine.
According to a Madi-
son County Sheriff's Of-
fice report, Alexander
was getting his hair cut at
the barber shop across
from the Madison Coin
Laundry when a woman
came in, screaming, "My
boy's locked in the wash-
ing machine with it run-


ning."
Alexander immedi-
ately got out of the bar-
ber's chair and ran across
the street into the laundry,
notifying dispatch, as he
was running, about the
five-year-old child locked
in a washing machine.
Other units, as well
as the fire department, be-
gan responding.
Alexander was un-
able to get the automatic
lock on the machine to
disengage as it was filling
up with water while the
boy was fumbling inside.
Alexander climbed
behind the machine and
grabbed the metal flexible


conduit connecting the

chine to the electrical sup-
ply Risking his own life to
save the child's life,
Alexander managed to
snatch the electrical


wires out of the junction
box with it sparking and
shorting out.
Alexander then went
around to the front of the
machine and managed to
disengage the lock and
pull the child to safety.
As other units ar-
rived, Alexander was
shaking and the boy (cov-
ered with soap from head
to toe) and his mother
were crying and hugging.
"I thank God for Cpl.

Lucilla McGill, said.

A flash of brilliance blazed across the skies over
Alapaha, Ga. during the early 1990s. It continued to
blaze towards Valdosta, Ga., where it was forever set
in the constellation over Valdosta State University
Sonja Harper Bass, also known as the "Alapaha
Flash," had her number 3 retired by the university's
softball program on Monday, Sept. 14.
Nestled in South Georgia, Alapaha is a small
town, about the size of Greenville in population and
in structure. It is approximately 12 miles north of
Nashville, Ga. During her four years at Berrien
County High School, she played on three Regional
championship teams, including the Georgia Class

Sonja was named the Most Valuable Offensive

In 1994, Sonja was selected as the Georgia High

Sonja had to adapt from playing slow pitch soft-
ball to fast pitch softball.
"I didn't expect to ever adjust to the pitching,"
she said at the time. "I was just coming to Valdosta
for my defense."
"When I recruited her, I knew I was taking a

Goes

Into Effect
By Ginger Jarvis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The City of Madison
began operating under
the 2009-10 budget on
Oct. 1. The city commis-
sioners at a special meet-
ing on Sept. 22, with no
public comment or ques-
tions, approved the
$7,761,129 budget unani-
mously
The budget includes
a one-time, across the
board $500 raise for all
employees, including
City Clerk Lee Anne Hall
and City Manager
Harold Emrich. The
commissioners earlier
had voted to keep their
own salaries at the 2008-
09 budget, rather than
accepting an increase.
The budget delin-
eates $3,025,104 for the
general fund; $225,125
for the Internal Revenue
Service fund; $3,093,500
for water and waste-
water services; $972,150
for natural gas services;
and $445,250 for sanita-
tion. Special revenues
are expected to be
$664,469 for items out-
side the regular budget.
The commissioners are
anticipating revenues in
like amounts for each
category
In a final vote on the
levy of ad valorem taxes,
the commissioners
unanimously approved a
millage rate of 6.0484
mills for the upcoming
year.

Jacob Bemr Beware People Bearing Gifts


Watching
Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us
watch and be sober 1 Thessalonians 5:6
Do you remember as a child while you sat and
looked out the window, watching for your mother or
father to come back from the store? Maybe you were
watching for your grandparents to show up or wait-
ing for a friend to come over and visit. Later, as a
teenager, you were ecstatic because you were watch-
ing the clock or your wristwatch because later that
evening, you had a big date to go on.
The Bible tells us to "watch" for Jesus' return.
In the past, I had always thought of that as being
more of a warning to be on guard. I didn't think
about it meaning to watch with expectation, with
hope, until I was reading a book written in the 1800s
by a man named William E. Blackstone. The name of
the book is Jesus is Coming. If you have access to the
Internet, it can be downloaded at www.archive.org.
There are many books in the public domain there,
which can be downloaded for free.
As I read the words of Blackstone, I realized
with excitement that it's something that we all
should do. We have trying times, but we should be
looking for Jesus to come again.
Are you ready for Jesus to come again? Are you
watching for Him to step out on the clouds and call
His children? I'm watching for Him.

Beware people bearing gifts. Or maybe even bar-
beque. Rumor has it that there will be a free BBQ at
Lee City Hall for everyone to come and enjoy eating.
While the proposed builder tells all us Lee hicks.
What benefits everyone will receive.
NOT MENTIONING THE HUGE AMOUNT OF
MONEY HE STANDS TO MAKE.
Who told him he had the job? Why would he start
hiring people to work on the sewer system? It isn't a
done deal yet.
Do to the drastic budget cuts for the school district
and the NFCC. My husband and I didn't know if we
would have jobs this year. He was fortunate to miss the
job cuts. This time. My job was picked back up and
funded by temporary stimulus monies. So we're not
spending anymore than we have to.
So lets add on bills that aren't necessary Like
$2,500.00 to destroy a perfectly working septic tank and
add on to the sewer system. 70% of the residents
don't want and can't pay for the septic system. Lots of
these folks may have to choose EAT or pay city hall.
They wanted to know what the citizens wanted.
The citizens showed up to tell them "NO WE DON'T
WANT IT". Evidently Lee City Hall and City Coun-
cil are now like Washington, DC. These ya hoos don't
know what is good for them. So we will force it down
their necks anyway!
So lets use the President's words here: there are
some miss communications going around.
Bring more jobs and business to the area

OOPS, not likely since surveys have been done and
WE didn't pass. This came from City Hall employee.
Not enough people who really want to work with good
work ethics. Honest, dependable, gets to work on
time, stays at work when get there, works well with
others, can follow directions

Sewer system will be low cost and stay low

Whoops, The city of Madison has it written in its
agreement a 5 % rate increase per year. How many Lee
residents get a 50% pay increase a year? Very few if
any.
Last weeks paper said everyone would have free
hook ups. Wrong, not everyone qualifies for the other
grant. That would make hook up free. A reporter was
noted making rude comments toward Lee resident at
the city council meeting. And printing untruths to suit
his personal views is unethical. His unprofessional
behavior was noted with rude comments about Lee cit-
izens.
Good Old Boy or should we say Good Old Girl pol-
itics are alive and well in regards to the sewer system.
In the city limits is a sub division right next to the
school. It has ties to at least 2 members of city hall and

From: Sonya Rae Graves
I really enjoy receiving the Carrier and Enter-
prise Recorder. A great delight to have a little of
home come to me here at FPC. Heck some of the
campers enjoy reading them too. All the big Head-
lines and the Health sections are just a few of what
we love. Every Paper that arrives catches everyone's
eyes at mail call. You guys make my days a little less
lonely, and I thank you very much.
One of the Sports we play here is called Football
Freesbie. Well, when the Paper arrived with the sto-
ry on Freesbies. I cut it out and took it to the Recre-
ation coach. Yall, he loved it. What a perfect time for
that to have been written.
Again, thank you, Tommy, Mary Ellen and
Emerald and staff.
If ok, I would like to say to my daddy, I Love Ya,
Daddy Also to say thank you for standing by me.
Plus to the love of my life, Kyle, Happy Birthday

city council. The streets are paved and since resur-
faced. The sewer won't go there. Supposedly it is too
far to run it. Really? But they already have city water.

The school board that had to cut jobs due to exten-
sive budget cuts. Will have to pay a very large amount
to hook up plus a large monthly bill.
Neither was budgeted for. Like everyone in Lee
this was a last minute surprise!

Trailer Park owners need Lee to do this for them.
Excuse me. Isn't it the owner who makes the profit for
them self? That is backwards the owners should be re-
quired to pay for their units onto the system. Just like
every other business in Lee would have to do. The
trailer park on the way to my house looks more like a
slum lord owns it. Windows are knocked out. The
yards are awful. There was a trailer in one of the park
where a Hispanic family lived with no running hot wa-
ter. These people had to go to a family members to use
hot water. I'm sure the owners collected rent every
month hot water or not. So here we are, the working
people trying to pay our way in life. Should we have to
take on this costly burden for people like that. I don't
think so!

People who move into Lee from Northern states or
return after retiring from somewhere. Have no idea as
to the low pay in Madison County

There was a tremendous amount of work done on
this. I am not denying that. Some was done back-
wards.
The system should have been voted on by the citi-
zens First not Last.
It is free money right? Wrong Lots of hard work-
ing people paid their taxes. Not like the politicians in
Washington. It is the 1.2 MILLION DOLLAR LOAN
that is unsustainable for Lee and its citizens. What hap-
pened to the if we don't have everything in place by
9/23/09. HUM They say it will be at least 5 years before
Florida starts coming back from the recession.

Think about this long and hard before you answer.
Where will you be in the next year when this all
falls apart. When Lee looses its charter. When Madi-
son will be in full control of everything(sewer system)
This is not a sustainable cost for Lee. When the cost
gets too high the renters will leave, our few business
will leave. Adding the burden on to the very ones who
didn't want it in the first place. What happened to lit-
tle but proud. Can you live with the death of the town
of Lee?
Sincerely,
Marta H. Smith,
Lee Resident


and I love you. To the people who work hard every-
day for my dad.
I miss you guys. Keep up the good work. Get
ready cause I'm coming back soon.
Thank you so much,

Enjoy The Who Was

Foods Of Fall Phoebe Ann


Each season has its own beauty and fall seems
to be a favorite. The weather usually cools down
by 10 degrees or so, and it's a time for football and
fall festivals. With a change of season comes a
change in fruits and vegetables available to pur-
chase. Seasonal fruits and vegetables can add a
variety of color and texture to your meals, not to
mention good nutrition. Here is a primer on the
colorful foods you can add to your family meals.
Pumpkin A member of the squash family,
these bold colored vegetables can only mean Hal-
loween or Thanksgiving are around the corner. A
great source of Vitamin A, they are not just for
pies. Try combining pumpkin with potatoes and
top with cheese for a side dish or substitute pump-
kin in recipes calling for acorn or butternut
squash. Add pumpkin to waffle or pancake bat-
ters, muffins and cookie recipe for a nutrition
boost. If you can carve a pumpkin for Halloween,
cook the pulp to use in a variety of recipes. To
cook a fresh pumpkin, cut it in half vertically, dis-
carding the seeds and stringy pulp. Place pump-
kin, sliced side down, in a large baking side, add
water so there is 12" and bake at 350 degrees for
one hour. Pumpkin can be portioned out and easi-
ly frozen for future use. Call the Extension Office
for directions on freezing pumpkin.
Sweet Potatoes A 12 cup serving contains
more than a day's supply of Vitamin A and they
are a good source of vitamin C. There are two
kinds of sweet potatoes: one has yellow flesh and a
dry, mealy texture; the other, which is sometimes
call a yam, is moist, dark orange and high in sug-
ar. They can be cooked a variety of ways and usu-
ally end up in sugary casserole. Make oven fries
by cutting them into strips, brush with canola oil
and bake. Try eating a baked sweet potato with a
sprinkle of cinnamon, you will discover they have
a remarkable taste of their own and don't need
sugar.
Winter Squash Acorn and butternut
squash have hard skins and cook up great as a
side dish with fall meals. Butternut can be used in
recipes that call for sweet potatoes; you can also
find soup recipes using it as the main ingredient.
Pears Abundant starting in September,
pears ripen best if they are picked while still firm.
They can be preserved in jars for use all year. Eat
them for a snack, use in salads or make a cobbler.
To make an easy dessert, mix 12 cup flour, 12 cup
oatmeal, % cup sugar and 5 tablespoons of mar-
garine unto crumbly, then sprinkle over cut up
pears and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Apples Although apples are available year
round, there is nothing like a fresh picked apple
in the fall. There are so many varieties to choose
from these days, they add color and crunch to
your meals. The perfect snack any day of the
week, apples can be eaten whole, baked or
stewed. Top pancakes or oatmeal with cooked ap-
ples for breakfast or add fresh apples to a salad
for lunch. Make apple sauce and apple butter to
accompany pork or chicken for an evening meal.
Fall is a great time to enjoy the cooler tem-
peratures and eat the fruits and vegetables that
brighten the change of season. For more infor-
mation on meal planning and nutrition, contact
the Madison County Extension Office.

Moses?
By Paul Niemann
Phoebe Moses lived an interesting life. As a
nine-year-old girl, she hunted for food to support her
family As a teenager, she starred in Buffalo Bill's
Wild West show. When she was 21, she beat a man in
a shooting contest and then married him. She also
spent her entire fortune on the charities that she
supported.
Phoebe (that's pronounced "Phoebe") was her
given name, but it was her stage name by which you
know her.
Phoebe was the fifth of seven children born in a
log cabin to Jacob and Susan Moses in 1860, a Quak-
er couple living in rural western Ohio. She couldn't
read, but she sure could shoot.
She lost her father when she was just six years
old. A few years later, she began hunting for food to
help feed the family She was such a good aim that
she could shoot the head off a running quail.
She was so good at hunting that she was able to
support the family by selling her game to local resi-
dents. Local hotel owners preferred the food that
Phoebe shot because she always shot the animals in
the head, meaning that there would be no buckshot
left in the animal. She did well enough to pay off the
mortgage on the family home in just three years!
This petite woman who stood only five-feet tall
as an adult went on to become one of the Wild
West's biggest celebrities. She could split the edge of
a playing card with her first shot, and then shoot five
more holes in that same card before it hit the
ground.
In 1881, the spunky little Phoebe competed
against a famous shooter named Frank Butler in a
contest near Greenville, Ohio. Now, Frank Butler
was considered one of the top three marksmen in
his day, but he was no match for Phoebe Ann Moses.
He lost when he missed his 25th shot, but things still
turned out well for him. Frank and Phoebe began
dating, and they married the following year.
So she became Phoebe Ann Butler, the greatest
American woman to ever shoot a gun, right?
Wrong. This woman, who would go on to per-
form with Sitting Bull and Buffalo Bill, would take a
nickname of her own; actually, it was more of a
stage name than a nickname. She took her stage
name after the Cincinnati neighborhood in which
she and Frank lived.
Phoebe Moses became known as Annie Oakley.
After they were married, she worked as Frank's
assistant in his show, but they both realized that An-
nie Oakley had more talent than he did, so he be-
came her assistant.


Ever Upward
Transcendent o'er this earthly sky
On silver'd wings with ease we fly
Ever upward, ever onward
Til that golden city's beacon
Draws us nearer, ever nearer
To a magnificent heavenly home
Til we break all earthly barriers
And nevermore aimlessly to roam.
I must apologize to my readers a sort of 'comedy of
errors caused my column to get temporarily lost last
week, just long enough to miss the ER deadline. Also, since
the subject is no longer relevant, it can't be used this week-
sorry
So, instead, let's talk about our new library which ap-
pears to be nearer completion but Danny Hales tells me to
expect a grand opening in January In the meantime,
"Friends of the Lee Library a group of movers and shak-
ers which consists of many prominent persons through-
out the county is working tirelessly to obtain funding for
providing furnishings and books for the library The gov-
ernment grant which made the building possible did not
cover those.
Thanks to Kenny Hall and the Hamilton County Cor-
rectional Center's inmate program, items such as wood
shelving and desks will be possible with materials fur-
nished by the Friends. Trees and shrubbing from Superi-
or Trees and Peacock's Landscaping have been promised
as well as indoor plants from Balis Base Street Florist for
the atrium, porch and any other indoor places. The
Friends are certainly grateful to these civic-minded mer-
chants and to the many cash donors who have already con-
tributed more than $25,000 toward the needed $40,000 for
the rest of the furniture and books.
Congressman Ander Crenshaw, besides his offer of a
dinner for four with him and a guided tour of the White
House for auction to the highest bidder, has sent a large
American Flag which was flown over the Capitol. I re-
ceived it last week-he didn't want to be late!
I am sending a copy of 'Be A Friend' which gives all
the information on contributing to this worthy cause and
the membership levels which are bronze, silver, gold and
platinum, starting at $100.00. But we will gladly accept
lesser amounts! Thank you!

BE A FRIEND
The cooperative efforts of many have resulted in the
construction of a new library for Lee, which will greatly
improve library services for Lee and the eastern part of
Madison County The Madison County Commission
pledged funding to match that provided by the State of
Florida, through the Secretary of State's Office. The Madi-
son County School Board provided a long-term lease for
the property and the Town of Lee waived permitting and
other fees.
Furnishing a new library in this economic environ-
ment, will be challenging. Please consider assisting us in
our efforts with a monetary donation to buy tables, chairs,
shelving, computer stations, and displays. This is a one-
time request for assistance. Your contribution will reap
community-wide benefits for 10 to 20 years. If you wish,
your contribution of $100 or more can be recognized on an
"Honor Wall" in the foyer of the new library or it can be
designated in honor of, or in memory of, a friend or loved
one.
Any Contribution amount will be appreciated!!

Strategic Plan

cont. from Page 1A
county officers, agency directors and parent volun-
teers, gathering to capacity in the school board
room to launch the strategic plan. The title of this
plan makes the mission clear: "The Five Year
Strategic Plan for Highest Student Achievement,
2010-2015."
PLW Consulting Director Paula Waller, who es-
tablished an exceptional reputation working with
the Panhandle Area Education Consortium (PAEC),
of which Madison County is a member, facilitated
this first of three meetings. Utilizing a skillful com-
bination of knowledge, humor and motivation,
Waller initiated several exercises while district ex-
ecutives shared core information that concluded
with all participants reaching a common conclu-
sion With the successful implementation of the
planning process, the district can and will set the
standard of success.
"In 2015, Superintendent Lou Miller will be the
speaking at state and national conferences, describ-
ing what we've launched today," Waller passionate-
ly declared.
Other notable district strengths that were
brought out during discussion included the notable
financial strenght of the district, particularly com-
pared to the surrounding counties, as well as the
community's commitment to improving challenges.
The latter was made evident by simply looking
around the room.
Additional key statistics and objectives were ex-
amined, each of which will be the topic of discus-
sion at the second meeting scheduled for Oct. 6 at 1
p.m. at the district boardroom. For additional infor-
mation on this program, contact the district office
at (850) 973-5022. Inquiries regarding contributions
to assist in this worthwhile effort are urged and
welcome.

Sonja Bass

cont. from Page 1A
While the Alapaha Flash blazed across paths of
glory at VSU, she became only the second All-Amer-
ican softball player in VSU Lady Blazer history in
1998. She was also a two-time preseason Gulf South
selection, three-time All-Gulf South selection and a
two-time All-Region selection at shortstop.
When she finished her career with the Lady
Blazers, Sonja stood alone as the all-time hits lead-
ers for VSU with 241 and the all-time doubles leader
with 51. She became the Iron Woman of VSU base-
ball, having played in the most games in school his-
tory, starting in all 222 since she sat foot on the
campus.
These days, Sonja is trying to instill in her play-
ers on the Madison County High School volleyball
and softball teams the same grit and determination
that made her an All-American. The Alapha Flash is
also blazing a path as a teacher's aide in the Com-
munity Based Instruction (CBI) program at the high
school.
Sonja and her husband of eight years, Scott
Bass, have two children, Alden Elaine Bass, a two-
year-old girl, and Harper Devane Bass, a four-month-
old boy
Sonja's Number 3 has been retired and the Lady
Blazers play at another softball park than they did
when she blazed the paths and helped make VSU a
national softball power, but, borrowing a phrase
from Sonja's senior season penned by the universi-
ty's sports information director, "Out at Sunset
Park, mixed in the clay, will always be the sweat and
desire of the Alapaha Flash."

Hickory Grove United Methodist Church is
steadily working hard to prepare for one of the
biggest events in Madison County, the Hickory
Grove Founders Day. The event is set for Saturday,
October 17, and will showcase the way life used to be
in the early 1900's. One of the highlights of the event
is the concert stage where gospel music will be
played all day, loud and clear.
The Master's are scheduled to return to this
year's Founders Day. Singing for over 30 years, the
group has gained popularity in Madison and the
Southeast region. The Master's have also been noted
for their emphasis on the prison ministry, perform-
ing and witnessing in the area's local prisons. The
current lineup consists of Murrell Bennett, Rhonda
Bennett and Nancy Hall.
A group that fits right in at Hickory Grove
Founder's Day is the McCormick Family. This tal-
ented family group places emphasis on country and
bluegrass gospel, playing a number of instruments,


including, but not limited to; banjo, steel guitar,
rhythm and electric guitar, drums, dobro and man-
dolin. Down through the years, the group has be-
come noted for their original songs. Making up the
group are Allen, Brenda and Jed McCormick.
Teddy McMullen is an Elvis Tribute Artist who
has become a Hickory Grove favorite. From Jack-
sonville, Ted travels the North Florida region, per-
forming at shows as Elvis, taking people's minds
back to the days of the "King of Rock and Roll,"
while mixing in Elvis' favorite gospel songs. His per-
formance is sure to make it a day to remember.
The Lighthouse Singers will once again make
their way to the stage to offer an unforgettable day
of gospel music. From Madison County, Sam and
Jan Agner, along with Edna McCormack, come to-
gether to form a trio which is back by popular de-
mand.
Also performing throughout the day will be the
Hickory Grove Church Choir, Karen and Cheri
Williams and Hope Smith.
Go out and enjoy a great day of gospel music.

"The first thing Cullen said when he
got back was, 'Can I go back next year?'"
stated his mom, Brigitte Gudz. Cullen
Gudz, who is a ninth grader at Madison
County High School,
attended the Duke
Talent Identification
Program (TIP) pro-
gram that was held on
the campus of Ap-
palachian State Uni-
versity
While many may
have never heard of
the Duke TIP pro-
gram, it's designed to
challenge and focus
on academic studies
of high achieving stu-
dents. To get into the
summer program, the
stakes are high. One
must excel on the
Florida Comprehen-
sive Assessment Test
(FCAT) and score at Culle
least an 18 on the
American College Testing (ACT). The av-
erage score of students who took the
ACT is 17, but Cullen arose to the occa-
sion and scored an 18. Cullen scored
above average on both tests in the sev-
enth grade.
Cullen attended the camp from July
12-August 1, in Boone, North Carolina.
His choice of study was Design Chal-
lenges: Physics and Engineering.
"It was really fun," stated Cullen. "I
pretty much lived the college life for
three weeks," and he did. A typical day at
Duke TIP was: 7:45-8:45 a.m., breakfast; 9
a.m.-noon, class; 12-1 p.m., lunch; 1-4 p.m.,
class; 4-5 p.m., free time; 5-6 p.m., dinner;
6-7 p.m., evening study; 7-9:30 p.m., recre-
ational activities; 9:30-10 p.m., free time;
10-10:45 p.m., hall time and lights out at
10:45 p.m.
When asked about the highlight of
the trip, Cullen was quick to respond,
"Meeting a bunch of new people and
learning what they can do. I enjoyed
sharing conversations with them."
Cullen stayed in the dorm on cam-
pus and had one roommate, and ate
lunch and dinner at the cafeteria. Cullen
was joined by approximately 200 stu-
dents at the camp, some of whom he
made friends with. Students traveled
from all over to participate in the camp,
including: Texas, North Carolina, Geor-


gia, South Florida and many other loca-
tions.
While the focus was much on educa-
tion, there was a good mix of education
and fun. "I had the most fun at PIT Fest,"
Cullen stated. On Saturday while attend-
ing the camp, the
students were treat-
ed to an activity
called the PIT fest,
where they played
games such as bal-
loon toss, three-
legged race, ultimate
Frisbee and more.
Inside the class-
room, the pressure
was high to obtain
as much informa-
tion as possible.
Each week on top of
the regular class
work, Cullen was re-
sponsible for prepar-
ing and presenting a
10-minute speech
and power point that
i Gudz he presented on Fri-
days. "I had one hour
each day to work on it before I presented
on Friday" Cullen stated.
The grading scale was much different
than the average high school scale. Stu-
dents were graded on a scale of one to five,
with five being the highest. "I scored
threes and fours on most everything," he
said.
"He brought home a lot of his work,
and it was far advanced," Brigitte stated,
who is a mathematics instructor at Madi-
son County High School. "I think he'll
find out what he learned this summer is
going to help him out in school."
Cullen is anxiously awaiting the op-
portunity to attend next year's Duke TIP
program. "Meeting new friends and
gaining a higher education makes me
want to go back," he said. Now that
Cullen is enrolled in the program, he can
attend year now if he wants.
Cullen admits to having an extreme-
ly busy summer with a very small break.
He was gone to the Duke TIP summer
program from July 12-August 1, and be-
gan band camp the week he returned.
Cullen is the son of Brigitte and
Martin Gudz
The Madison County School System
has to be proud of Cullen. Cullen has suc-
ceeded both in and outside the class-
room. He will continue to excel in
everything he does.

Eleven teams teed it up at the sold
out Four Freedoms Gold Tournament
this year. Organized as a fundraiser
with proceeds going to the Madison
County Chamber of Commerce and
Tourism, and sponsored by several
dozen local businesses and individuals,
reporting the event a success, is putting
it mildly.
When the final putt fell, two teams of
golfers, one scoring low gross and anoth-
er low net, received $100 cash prizes for
each golfer (provided on an American


Express Gift Card), in addition to a tro-
phy, and that was just the tip of the tee.
After play, a delicious barbecue
lunch was served, followed by drawings
for cool and useful prizes, where no one
walked away empty-handed. Chamber
Executive Director Ted Ensminger and
Board Member Charles Maultsby, who
also served as Committee Chair for the
tournament, presided over the event.
The lovely chamber staff and volun-
teers, whom Ensminger praised for
their commitment to producing a great
event, accompanied them. In the end, it
was definitely aces for everyone.


The tournament was a best-ball for-
mat, with golfers of all skill levels en-
joying the morning.
The tournament was held at the
Madison Country Club, which features
a nine-hole tract with two sets of tee
boxes to create a front and back nine. In
addition to low score, prizes were
awarded for long drive and closest to the
pin, as well as longest putt of the day
Players were also allowed to purchase
Mulligans for $5 each, adding that little
something extra to each team's per-
formance, as it added a little something
extra to the fundraiser.


The low gross winner was Citizens
State Bank with a 56. The team consist-
ed of Rodney Doss, Gene Rutherford,
Lane Barfield, and Glen Buchannan
(photo not available). The low net win-
ner, with a score if 51.8 (includes handi-
caps) was Progress Energy, consisting
of Bobby Pickels, Alan Sowell, Eddie
Holman, and Stan Garrett. Rodney Doss
won one of "Closest to the Pin" honors,
and Connie McClamma won the other,
with John Sirmon winning the
"Longest Putt" award.

Chamber Board Member, and Golf Tournament Committee Chair, Charles
Maultsby, standing in the rear of the room, presented dozens of prizes from
drawings after the players and organizers enjoyed an incredible barbecue lunch,
which was generously provided by Myra Valentine, Lake Park of Madison,
Fraleigh Nursery, Ashley Beggs and United Country Searcy Realty.

great blessing to the
Lord. Madison First
Baptist would like to
welcome into place our
three new Deacons, Todd
Gordon, Roger McCol-
lum, and Justin Davis.
During services Sunday
morning pastor Ferrell
preached about the qual-
ities of that a leader of
the church should pos-
sess. He preached from


Acts 6:3 & 7 on the three
main qualities and they
are: a good reputation,
filled with the Holy Spir-
it and have wisdom.
Sunday morning we
also had the great joy of
the Children's Choir
singing a song for us.
Also, Sunday night
was our quarterly busi-
ness meeting as well as
Family Night. Family
night was filled with
much fellowship and
fun.

The October lun-
cheon meeting of 55 Plus
Club is a very important
event to attend. The
Mentoring Coordinator
of the Madison County
School District "Project
Safe Zone" will present
the program. Jodie Price
is the Mentor Coordina-
tor, working under a
grant called "Safe
Schools/Healthy Stu-
dents Project Safe Zone."
Mentors are needed in
the six Madison County
Schools: grades K-8 at
Central School and 9-12
at the High School.
A mentor is many
things: a listener, a role
model, an encourager, a
tutor and most of all, a
friend to the student.
Price said of a men-
tor: 'A mentor is a spe-
cial type of school
volunteer, committed to
expending the time and
energy necessary to help
a young person succeed
in school. A mentor is
many things: a listener, a
role model, an encour-


ager, a tutor, and most of
all, a friend to the stu-
dent.
"Mentoring is a re-
search based interven-
tion strategy that has
been included in the new
Safe Schools/Healthy
Students Project Safe
Zone Grant that has been
awarded to the Madison
County School District.
"We want to have a
lot of mentors to choose
from to provide the most
advantageous match for
a student and mentor, so
we each other feel suc-
cessful.
"Our overall goal is
to be successful in align-
ing our schools and com-
munity to support
students, families and
teachers. The grant will
also provide more re-
search based interven-
tion strategies so our
school sites are drug
free, violence free and as
safe as possible for our
students and teachers. A
safe environment is
much more conducive to


learning."
"Today's Students
are Our Future Lead-
ers."
The 55 Plus Club will
meet October 14 at the
United Methodist Coop-
erative Community Cen-
ter at noon for a
luncheon. Rocky Springs
United Methodist
Church is the host for
the October meeting.
The United
Methodist Cooperative
Community Center is lo-
cated about five miles
north on Highway 145 at
the corner of Dill Street
and Highway 145.
All seniors 55
years old and older and
of all faiths are welcome
to attend. The lunch is
free and there are no fees
of any kind.

tion about the October 14

erative Ministries, call

and most recently, "I Cast My Bread

gospel circles.
"The most important thing for
Gold City throughout the years is that
the group has kept the Lord first, and
we are no different today," group man-
ager Daniel Riley stresses. "We seek to
honor Him in our music and in our
lives. I believe that's why Gold City is
still here, because we do put Him first
in all the music and make Him num-
ber one on our priority list."
Daniel took over the southern
gospel group from his father, Tim Ri-
ley, when he retired just a few years
ago. Daniel has brought together a
stellar group of singers and entertain-
ers in Gold City's current structure:
Chris Cooper, tenor; Bruce Taliaferro,
lead; Tim Riley, bass; and Daniel on
baritone. They have a full-time pianist
and carry a full band on select dates.

Tallahassee Gazette Praises Madison Female emninary


By Billy Williams
In December 1853, James L. Moseley, head of
St. John's Seminary of Learning, assumed the
leadership of the Madison Female Seminary, thus
were the two schools united under the control of
one superintendent. Moseley assured the public
that he "would use every exertion to procure the
services of competent and faithful teachers for
every department necessary for a thorough and
proper female education. Mr. Moseley further
promised that "the general deportment of all
pupils entrusted to his care shall be strictly ob-
served, and they shall be kept from all places of
amusement calculated to corrupt their morals or
draw their attention from books." Moseley called
for the support of the people of Middle Florida and
pledged "to spare neither trouble, attention nor ex-
pense to build up a school of such a character as
will be creditable to the state."
In 1854, The Tallahassee Floridian and Journal
described the Madison Female Seminary as being
"supplied with an able corps of teachers, amply
qualified to bestow upon young ladies a thorough ed-
ucation." The paper continued, 'All that is necessary
to ensure its success and permanence is a little effort
on the part of the friends of home schools in our
state."
On the occasion of the 1854 session of the Fe-
male Seminary, Superintendent Moseley addressed
the following to the "Friends of Education:"
'After much expense, fatigue, and trouble, we
have succeeded in procuring the services of two ac-
complished and experienced ladies, Misses Water-
man and Wammack, and a most excellent pianist,
Rikcart of Germany, who are now at their posts.
With this additional force, and the efficient aid of
Mrs. Moseley, we think we can safely promise entire
satisfaction to all our patrons. It is useless and un-
patriotic for citizens of Florida to send their daugh-
ters to other states to be educated, after the
establishment of such a school among them, by one
who was born, raised, and educated in the South;
who is permanently located in the State, and whose
interest is insuperably linked with her future des-
tiny. It is also a duty that every good citizen owes to
himself to lend a helping hand to the noble and
praiseworthy efforts to elevate the standard of fe-
male education in Florida."
The following appeared in The Madison Mes-
senger in reference to the female seminary:
"We understand that the Female Seminary in
this place, under the supervision of James Moseley,
Esq., is going on prosperously. And verily, from the
galaxy of beauty arrayed in the Presbyterian
Church last Sunday (and whom we are informed are


pupils of the Seminary) we know not what should re-
tard the success and prosperity of the school. Mr.
Moseley is receiving strong encouragement from the
border counties of Georgia, which is significant that
his ability as a teacher is fast becoming known
abroad."
The examination held at the end of each school
year was a big social event for the entire communi-
ty. Joint exercises of the two seminaries in Madi-
son were held during the superintendency of
James L. Moseley. The following announcement is


indicative of the examination ceremonies:
"The examination of the pupils of the Madison
Male and Female Seminaries will take place on the
7th, 8th, and 9th of June, during which time there
will be a concert and declamation.
"It affords us pleasure to announce to the public
that Mr Wilkinson Call of Tallahassee has consent-
ed to address the schools on Friday the 9th, which
will doubtless cause many to visit Madison, as Mr
Call is a man of fine talents. The friends of educa-
tion generally are invited to attend."

The Scott Pond And Taking

The Train To Valdosta?


From the Madison Enter-
prise-Recorder, Septem-
ber 26, 1969
By Lawrence Wyche
Do you remember when
Lake Frances was known as
the Scott Pond?
It was supposed to be
one mile around, a little larg-
er than it is today and it was
the stage for racing the fine
trotters owned by the horse
lovers before the "horseless
carriage" came in vogue.
The race was a mile af-
fair twice around, one con-
testant going clockwise and
the other counterclockwise.
When the New Valdosta
Southern was the Georgia &
Florida and pulled a passen-
ger train twice daily, leaving


in the a.m., returning
around noon, leaving again
and returning later in the af-
ternoon. Madison was the
end of the line and in order
for the engine to get turned
around for the next trip
north. There was a contrap-
tion called a "Turn Table."
The engine would pull
upon it and all of the train
crew would turn the engine
around manually (taking
about five or ten minutes)
then the engineer would pull
off the turn table and couple
up to the coaches ready for
the next run. Yes, this was a

woodburner and along the
line, there were wood racks
and also there was a person
who passed through the
coaches yelling, "Candy, pop-
corn, bananas, cold drinks"
and numerous other items.
He was called "Butcher Boy,"
but finally he was known as
"Butch."
Yes, there was a depot
with waiting rooms. Ticket
agent, freight platform and
warehouse for there was a
freight train schedule each
day separate from the pas-
senger.

Get Started Hunting

Getting the right introduction to hunting en-
sures a quality experience and the start to a lifetime
of enjoyment. Many hunters receive their first in-
troduction to hunting from family or friends as a
tradition passed down from generation to genera-
tion.
For all hunters, whether they have mentors to
guide them or not, the most important first step into
the woods begins with a state-certified hunter edu-
cation course.
Huntinfo.org gives you quick access to your
state's wildlife agency Web site where you can find a
hunter education course near you. To help prepare
you for your class you can also access "Introduction
to Hunter Education," an on-line hunter education
course provided by the International Hunter Educa-
tion Association (IHEA) in partnership with the Na-
tional Shooting Sports Foundation. In some states,
hunter education students may take the written por-
tion of this on-line course toward certification. Your
state agency also provides information on season
dates, application deadlines, license fees and more.
Hunting is a useful and beneficial wildlife man-
agement tool that ensures and maintains the health
and abundance of game species and the balance of
our natural resources. There are a number of
species, from upland birds to big game animals to
hunt. Learn more about these species from the game
bird and game animal organizations listed at
huntinfo.org.
Once you have received your hunter education
certification, you become part of the largest group
of contributors to conservation and wildlife man-
agement in America. It's the start to an honored tra-
dition that you too have the opportunity to pass on to
the next generation.

Get Started Shooting

Getting the right introduction to the shooting
sports ensures a quality first-time experience and
the start to a lifetime of enjoyment.
Begin with the basics. The National Rifle Asso-
ciation (NRA) provides firearm training courses
that will teach you safety principles and help you de-
velop the knowledge, skills and attitude that are
needed to pursue your shooting interests.
The NRA provides an online state-by-state loca-
tor to help you find a local firearm safety course.
A professional shooting facility is another re-
source for you to contact about introductory courses
and quality instruction. Wheretoshoot.org will help
you find a range near you. Make contact and arrange
a time to visit. Let the range know you are a new-
comer to shooting. They will provide the informa-
tion and instruction you need to get started in the
different shooting disciplines; shotgun, rifle and/or
handgun shooting.
If you can't find a range, locate a shooting sports
retailer near you. A good shooting sports retailer
can help get you pointed in the right direction to find
firearm safety courses and shooting instruction.
Also take a look at FirstShots.org where new-
comers can find instructional opportunities to give
handgun shooting a try
You can find out more about the basic shooting
games for shotgun, rifle and handgun at where-
toshoot.org. As you get more involved in target
shooting, you may discover different variations of
these basic games and more opportunities to have
fun.

History
How a Good Idea Became a Great Tradition
Over 100 years ago, hunters and anglers were
the earliest and most vocal supporters of conserva-
tion and scientific wildlife management. They were
the first to recognize that rapid development and un-
regulated uses of wildlife were threatening the fu-
ture of many species.
Led by fellow sportsman President Theodore
Roosevelt, these early conservationists called for the
first laws restricting the commercial slaughter of
wildlife. They urged sustainable use of fish and
game, created hunting and fishing licenses, and lob-
bied for taxes on sporting equipment to provide
funds for state conservation agencies. These actions
were the foundation of the North American wildlife
conservation model, a science-based, user-pay sys-
tem that would foster the most dramatic conserva-
tion successes of all time.
Populations of white-tailed deer, elk, antelope,
wild turkey, wood ducks and many other species be-
gan to recover from decades of unregulated ex-
ploitation.
During the next half-century, in addition to the
funds they contributed for conservation and their
diligent watch over the returning health of Ameri-
ca's outdoors, sportsmen worked countless hours to
protect and improve millions of acres of vital habi-
tat-lands and waters for the use and enjoyment of
everyone.
In the 1960s, hunters and anglers embraced the
era's heightened environmental awareness but were
discouraged that many people didn't understand the
crucial role that sportsmen had played-and continue
to play-in the conservation movement.
The first to suggest an official day of thanks to
sportsmen was Ira Joffe, owner of Joffe's Gun Shop
in Upper Darby, Pa. In 1970, Pennsylvania Gov. Ray-
mond Shafer adopted Joffe's idea and created "Out-
door Sportsman's Day" in the state.
With determined prompting from the National
Shooting Sports Foundation, the concept soon
emerged on the floor of the U.S. Senate. In June 1971,
Sen. Thomas McIntyre, N.H., introduced Joint Reso-
lution 117 authorizing National Hunting and Fish-
ing Day on the fourth Saturday of every September.
Rep. Bob Sikes, introduced an identical measure in
the House. In early 1972, Congress unanimously
passed both bills.

Get Started Fishing

Do you remember your first fishing or boating
trip?
Ask anyone to tell the story of who first took
them boating or fishing chances are good the story
is deeply personal and meaningful.
Over a dozen studies have shown that being
with family and friends, relaxing and being out-
doors and close to nature are the primary reasons
people spend time on the water. A family doesn't
have to spend a fortune on a theme park vacation to
have an experience that everyone will enjoy Al-
though your first meeting with Mickey Mouse will
probably be memorable, chances are it will pale in
comparison to memories of spending time on the
water with the people you love.
Time spent fishing and boating connects family
and friends.
You know how important it is to spend quality
time with family and friends. Many of us have seen
how outdoor recreation strengthens the family as a
unit and children as individuals. So it comes as no
surprise that studies have consistently shown that
involvement with family members and friends is a
primary reason people go boating and fishing.
On the water, there are no cars, no rush hour, no
deadlines and a chance to relax.
There are news stories every week about the
stress and time crunch felt by working Americans
and their families. People are searching for ways to
escape the daily routine, be closer to nature and fo-
cus more on family and relationships. Studies show
that people who participate frequently in outdoor
recreation are more satisfied with life overall. For a
weeklong vacation or just a quiet Saturday morn-
ing, recreational fishing and boating are great ways
to "get away from it all."
Fishing and boating enhance appreciation for
the natural world.
Many Americans see outdoor recreation as one
of the main reasons to protect the environment.
Nearly nine in ten Americans say outdoor recre-
ation benefits the environment because it gives peo-
ple a reason to care about the resources upon which
their activities depend.
By participating, anglers and boaters provide
vital funding.
Fewer than 10 percent of recreational anglers
and boaters are aware that their participation plays
a vital role in sustaining resources and promoting
safe and responsible use of our nation's waters. On
average, 83 percent of state fish and wildlife agen-
cies' total freshwater fisheries/aquatic resource
management budget is supported by fishing license
sales and Sport Fish Restoration funds. These funds
are derived from motorboat fuel taxes and a special
excise tax on fishing tackle and equipment. Sport
Fish Restoration funds also support boater educa-
tion and safety programs around the country

FWC Asks Coastal

Communities To Keep It

Dark For Sea Turtle

Hatchlings


As night tempera-
tures cool and summer
visitors leave Florida's
beaches, a different type
of visitor moves across
the sand surface each
night. Baby sea turtles,
or hatchlings, will move
up through the sand
from their nests one to
two feet below the sur-
face and then brave the
dangers of the nighttime
beach as they dash for
the waves. These tiny
reptiles face many dan-
gers, including preda-
tors, holes in the sand
surface, obstacles, such
as beach furniture, and
exterior lights that con-
fuse them in their search
for the ocean and leave
them trapped on the
beach.
According to the
Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC),
beachfront communities


and resorts can help
hatchlings make it safe-
ly to the sea by removing
obstacles each night and
by ensuring that exteri-
or lights are not visible
from the nesting beach.
"The FWC will con-
tinue to work with
beachfront property
owners to manage their
exterior lights for the
safety of both people and
sea turtles," said Dr.
Robbin Trindell of the
FWC's Imperiled Species
Management Section.
"We ask communities to
keep their exterior
lights mounted low or
close to the ground, to
use low wattages and
long (wavelength) bulbs
and to shield the light
source to focus light
where it is needed, mini-
mizing light pollution or
scatter onto the nesting
beach."
To help coastal com-


munities do this, the
FWC worked with D.B.
Ecological Service, Inc.
to create a traveling dis-
play featuring different
types of lights, fixtures
and educational materi-
als. This lighting trailer
was developed through a
grant from the National
Fish and Wildlife Foun-
dation and will be avail-
able for workshops and
other meetings.
As part of this
grant, the FWC is also of-
fering a Shield Loan pro-
gram for property
owners in Brevard, Indi-
an River, St. Lucie, Mar-
tin, Palm Beach,
Sarasota, Charlotte, Lee
and Collier counties. A
limited number of am-
ber LED bulbs are avail-
able for beachfront
property owners who
agree to manage their
lights to minimize light
trespass onto adjacent
sea turtle nesting
beaches in those coun-
ties.
To find out more
about this program and
to see if you qualify to
receive shields or LED
bulbs free of charge,
contact the FWC's Ma-
rine Turtle Management
Program at 850-922-4330

tion on the FWC Shield
Loan Program also is

Climate Chang
Autumn in Florida brings relief
from the suffocating heat and drip-
ping humidity of summer. We Florid-
ians begin to venture outside once
again just in time for the seasonal
arrival of unique and abundant mi-
gratory birds.
Some of those birds that fly south
only rest in Florida before heading to
Central and South America. Some
stay for a couple of months until their
breeding and nesting grounds up
north thaw come spring. Then there
are those snowbirds that return to the
Sunshine State to breed and nest, re-
maining with us for six months or
more.
However, studies are showing
these patterns are shifting as a result
of warmer overall temperatures. The
analogy of the canary in the coal
mine is an apt one birds often are
the first harbingers of changing habi-
tats.
"We see trends first in birds be-
cause it is so easy to see," said Elena
Sachs, with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission's
Florida Bird Conservation Initiative.
"We can monitor migration, breeding
and timing patterns in migratory
birds. For everything to continue to
work in sync, the birds, insects,
plants and wildlife must change at
the same rate. That doesn't always
happen."
Several studies across the nation
point to one thing: rising tempera-
tures over the past 40 years have re-
sulted in drastic changes in
migration patterns among some
species of birds.
The National Oceanic and At-
mospheric Administration (NOAA)
records show the average tempera-
tures for January rose more than five
degrees Fahrenheit in the continen-
tal United States over the past 40
years.
Audubon's annual Christmas
Bird Count has resulted in one of the
largest repositories of bird-migration
data in the world. Audubon released a
study compiling the "citizen scien-
tists'" findings. The data, in conjunc-
tion with statistics on rising
temperatures, is startling: 305 wide-
spread bird species in North America
"have moved dramatically northward
- toward colder latitudes over the
past four decades."
"We were able to look at the
trends for almost four decades using
our counts and NOAA's figures," said
Greg Butcher, director of bird conser-


Patricia Behnke


vation at the National Audubon Soci-
ety. "If there is no further warming
then it's just a fun study; but that's
not what the experts say They say
this warming trend will continue."
According to another study from
the University of California at Berke-
ley, changes in precipitation levels
also have an impact. The study sug-
gests as warmer and wetter weather
has occurred in parts of the Sierra
Nevada Mountains, the vast majority
of birds there have shifted their
ranges accordingly.
With predications of increased
rainfall in parts of Florida and an in-
crease in the intensity of hurricanes
in the next 50 years, our little feath-
ered friends will be forced to adapt
faster than a hummingbird flaps its
small, yet mighty wings.
"It's the pace of climate change,"
Sachs said. "When evolution occurs,
species have time to catch up, but the
speed at which temperatures are ris-
ing and precipitation patterns are
changing presents some problems."
Butcher cautions that some birds
will go back to breeding grounds too
soon. In Canada, as temperatures
rise, some birds will stay put, and
when the other birds come too soon,
precious habitat will be filled with
displaced birds.
"Some will adapt," Butcher said.
"Species already endangered or on
the fringe won't do well and will suf-
fer. Florida will be particularly vul-
nerable with its coastal shoreline and
huge amount and variety of winter-
ing shorebirds."
Butcher urges individuals to vol-
unteer with local groups working to
protect natural areas. He also sug-
gests participating in the annual
Christmas Bird Count.
The 110th Christmas Bird Count
runs from Dec. 14 to Jan. 5. The
Audubon Society's Web site will have
specific information by November.
Visit www.audubon.org/ Bird/cbc
and click on "Get Involved." You also
can contact your local Audubon chap-
ter for further information on how to
get involved. If you are a backyard
birder with little experience, a fun
way to get involved is through eBird,
a Web site devoted to compiling
records of bird sightings. Just regis-
ter at http://ebird.org and follow the
simple instructions for reporting
your birding information. You'll be
learning about birds and assisting
the experts as they address they im-
pacts of climate change.
