Officials Praise Handling Of

Central School Bomb Threat

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On Tuesday, Oct. 27, between 10-10:15 a.m.,
a note was found at the Madison County
Central School stating a bomb was in the
building. The note was given to Dean of Students
Rod Williams, who immediately took prescribed ac-
Sgt. Charlie Dickey, supervisor of the School Re-
source Officers for the district, was on hand and ini-
tiated a Fire Drill to clear the building. According to
Dickey, the school carefully followed the planned
protocol for such an incident. He further noted that
Principal Sam Stalnaker and Superintendent of
Schools Lou Miller were immediately connected to
the process as well, each later sending out a county-
wide "Connect-Ed" broadcast to keep parents and
the community informed of the situation.
Sheriff Ben Stewart, additional law enforce-
ment and district personnel arrived on the scene, as
the children were moved to safe locations on the
school property in only three minutes. Staff and law
enforcement then launched a methodical search of
the premises, beginning with the gym and cafeteria,
so students could return from the inclement weath-
er and younger students could eat lunch as soon as
Between approximately 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.,
classrooms were swept, with law enforcement pro-
viding official clearance as the search progressed.
About an hour later, the threat was officially closed.

Do Not Respond To

Emails From The FDIC
Local bank president reports scam
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
citizens State Bank President Ray Griffin recently brought a
scam to light that involves the FDIC. The rip-off begins with
an official-looking email that takes potential victims to an-
other website that has official logos and references, which has already
fooled many around the country
According to the report, the subject line of the email states: "Check
your Bank Deposit Insurance Coverage."
The email then tells recipients that, "You have received this mes-
sage because you are a holder of a FDIC-insured bank account. Recent-
ly FDIC has officially named the bank you have opened your account
with as a failed bank, thus, taking control of its assets."
The email then asks recipients to "visit the official FDIC website
and perform the following steps to check your Deposit Insurance Cov-
erage." Here is where a fraudulent link is provided. It then instructs re-
cipients to "download and open your personal FDIC Insurance File to
check your Deposit Insurance Coverage."
The report provided by Griffin further reiterates: "This email and
associated Web site are fraudulent. Recipients should consider the in-
tent of this email as an attempt to collect personal or confidential in

Jacob Announcing Mr. & Mrs.
Jacob's Darren George Webb
Ladder Darren George Webb

A Tight Grip
For years, I knew exactly where it was. It was
not made of precious metal, but it had cost my par-
ents dearly when I was in high school. It was my
class ring. Back then, the price of gold had soared
and the Hunt brothers had bought up all the silver
on the market and its value had soared past that of
gold. Josten's, who sold class rings back then and
still do today, had began making rings out of a mix-
ture of nickel and chromium, known as lustrium.
I loved the ring. It was set in my birthstone (sap-
phire) and had a starburst in the stone. Inscribed
with my initials on the inside, it had my school's
coat of arms on the outside, along with a tiger on the
Someone asked me the other day if I still had my
ring. I answered "yes" but I'm not sure if that's so. It
may be around here somewhere or I may have lost it.
Although I would love to know where it is, it's no
longer important if I have it. I have my memories of
Jefferson County High School and my precious
memories of my parents who bought the ring for
me. They worked hard at their jobs but they always
found a way to provide the necessities (and in the
ring's case) a few luxuries for their children.
Corrie ten Boom, who was sent to a concentra-
tion camp during World War II for sheltering Jewish
people, once said that she had to learn to hang on
loosely to things because it hurt so bad when God
came and pried the things out of her hands. I have
had and still do have a
tendency to hold on to
things too tightly. It
doesn't matter if it's ma-
terial things or pets or
friends or anything else.
My hands need to re-
member not to grasp too
One thing that I
have neglected to do
over the years, however,
is to check up on old
friends. I have recently
become reacquainted
with a few of them on
Facebook. I'm expecting
a visit from one of them
(who lives far away)
next week. Another one
told me of a chance
meeting in Lee that he
had with me one time.
We spoke for about five
minutes that day He told
me that he had often
thought about our con-
versation that day.
These two friends,
whom I have not seen in
years, still hold fond
places in my heart and I
think that I do in theirs
The one thing that I
must grasp firmly is
God's hand. In it, I feel |
safe and secure. The
good thing is, His grip is s It I
tighter than mine.

Mr and Mrs. Homer Q. Melgaard would

The groom is the son of George and Mar-

The maid of honor was Mandy Medders,
sister of the bride. Bridesmaids were Harriet
Brewer; Audra Schaney, and Lori Newman,
sister of the groom. The best man was
George Webb, father of the groom.
Groomsmen were Todd Phillips, Phillip Reg-

Nephew. The flower girls were MacKenzie

groom's niece.

Keep Halloween

Safe and Fun
Halloween will be here this weekend. It's the time
when children dress up in costumes and ask their neigh-
bors for candy, while parents take pictures and prepare
to greet neighborhood trick-or-treaters. Extension Spe-
cialist in Home Environment want consumers to keep
festive holidays safe and fun, so consider these Hal-
loween safety tips.
Let's first look at costumes; since fabric can easily
catch fire if you brush too closely to a candle-lit jack-o-
lantern or luminary make sure costumes are flame-re-
sistant. The Consumer Product Safety Commission
suggests you look at the label in costumes, masks,
beards, and wigs to be sure it is flame resistant. These
labels don't mean these items won't burn, it indicates
the item will resist burning and should extinguish
Costumes should be short enough to prevent chil-
dren from tripping or falling. If your costume requires
a mask or face covering, you should be able to see clear-
ly and breathe easily at all times. For best visibility and
safety, consider using face paint or makeup instead of a
mask. Be extra careful when applying makeup near
Accessories such as swords or knives should be soft
and flexible. Make sure that scarves, sashes and hats are
worn securely and do not block your vision. Shoes
should be well fitting; high heels are not a good choice
for walking. It is also a good idea to use reflective tape
on costumes or the treat bag.
Venturing out alone is not a safe idea nor is it fun. If
children are old enough to go with a group of friends,
give them instructions as to the area they can go and a
time to return home. It is always best to have a trusted
adult accompany a group of children. Plan a route
ahead of time and bring a cell phone or a set of walkie-
talkies for communication in case you get separated
from the group.
Carry a flashlight so you can see where you're walk-
ing and so others can see you. Walk on the sidewalk
wherever possible. If there is not a sidewalk, keep away
from the edge of the road and walk facing the traffic.
Caution children to walk from house to house; running
increases the chances of falling and causing injury Rid-
ing bikes to do trick-or-treating is strongly discouraged,
costumes can get caught in the wheels, gears or pedals.
Instruct your children not to sample candy until
they have returned home. Parents need to inspect can-
dy for torn wrappers or other signs of tampering such as
discoloration, pinholes, and small tears. Any opened
packages and homemade food or candy should be
thrown away
If your job is to stay at home and pass out candy,
light the way to your door. If you have a carved pumpkin
and want to laminate it, use a battery operated light in-
side instead of a candle. As mentioned earlier in my ar-
ticle, clothing may accidently brush up against the flame
and could cause a child's costume to catch on fire.
In rural areas, many people opt for fall festivals -
neighbors, schools or local churches sometimes sponsor
these events. This gives families a safe alternative to en-
joy games, activities and food and eliminates wandering
through neighborhoods in the dark.
Regardless of your choice, safety should be your
first consideration before venturing out to festive activi-
ties. For more information on home environment and
safety, contact the Madison County Extension Service.

Editor's Note: Last week, we ran this column with
part of it missing. The mistake was all my own, so for
the writer we are running it again. I apologize to the
writer and to the readers for my mistake.
Thanks, Jacob Bembry

When God made man in His own image, He ap-
parently gave him the same type of brain since
Adam named all the animals, how else did he know
all of their names?
The Garden of Eden was the only perfect place
on Earth yet Adam had to tend it with Eve as help-
If God gave Adam all of his own attributes, why
did He give him Eve? Did God have a mate? He had a
Son. Was it perhaps the Holy Spirit since the God-
head is a trio?
And why did He choose the little plant Earth on
which to place the Garden? With all of its imperfec-
tions such as weeds and brambles?
When God shaped Adam's perfect form from the
dust of the earth, that form was lifeless, inert, until
God's own breath transformed that dust into a per-
fect man.
Did that breath alone fill that form with all the
perfectly healthy organs, bones, veins, teeth, etc.,
that was Adam?
And the brain, with all its advanced knowledge
of horticulture and animal husbandry? But with no
apparent emotions except one to be someone to
walk in the Garden and converse with Him on His
level, to be the Perfect Companion! He had given him
that kind of brain.
Again, why Earth when He had created all this
immense cosmos? And, if all He had created was
perfect why was there already brambles outside the
Garden? Or were these, like the animals, harmless
before sin?
I don't know where I got the above but there was
a cartoon above it, showing a couple with raincoats
and umbrellas on one side of a fierce storm and a
small church on the other side with the caption
above reading, "Start here and find your way
through the storm to a safe place."
Have a great week,

works Hard To

Keep Roads Safe

By Bryant Thigpen
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On Wednesday morning, Oc-
tober 21, this reporter had the
privilege of observing Officer Ka-
trina Robson of the Florida De-
partment of Transportation as
she worked to keep the highways
safe for traveling Americans. Be-
ginning around 10 a.m., this ex-
citing new adventure began in
learning the role
FDOT plays
in the
o f

law enforcement.
To begin the day, Officer Rob-
son provided a tour of the weigh
station on Interstate 10. Robson
and officers in the station ex-
plained the process of how trucks

tinuing to travel.
The next traffic stop was a
level two inspection, where Rob-
son inspected truck lights, tires,
airlines and more. During the in-
spection, Officer Robson spotted
three tires that needed immedi-
ate attention as well as an airline
leak. The driver was required to
change tires before continuing.
The final stop of the ride was
on Highway 53 south when Rob-
son spotted a log truck that ap-
peared to be in violation of the
length, weight and height law.
Semi trucks are allowed to be
13'6" in height. Log trucks also
have to be within 75' in length.
This semi was in violation and
was charged a fine.
"My goal is to get all of the
unsafe drivers off the highway,"
Robson stated.
"I love my job and what I do,"
she said. Anyone who knows Rob-
son knows this is true. Officer
Robson was very friendly and
handled each traffic stop with
top-notch professionalism.
It was an exciting experience
and this reporter feels much
safer knowing Officer Robson is
on the job as well as the hundreds
of FDOT officers across the state
of Florida.

Count Me In, 201 01

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
National Census
Day will be
held on April
1, 2010. From now until
then, staff and volun-
teers will be meeting
with organizations
throughout Madison
County to ensure the
word gets out about the
census. The role of the
census is extremely im-
portant to the county
and throughout the
country, as huge
amounts of funding and
political districts are
based on the results. It is
literally woven into the
official fabric of Ameri-
Unfortunately, not
everybody likes the idea
of the census. Some feel
like "Big Brother" is look-
ing into their business.
Others see it like the IRS,
and dislike it even if they
cooperate. Others are ac-

tually afraid of it because
they believe it might cre-
ate some sort of investiga-
tion into their lives or
have some other negative
impact on their house-
hold. In some cases, there
may be confusion, as mul-
tiple families live under
one roof, which they don't
want to reveal for one rea-
son or another. Face it;
most people feel they are
entitled to their privacy
Fortunately, the offi-
cials, workers and com-
munity volunteers in
charge of Census 2010 un-
derstand all of this, as do
elected local, state and na-
tional representatives. So,
to make sure everybody is
as comfortable as possi-
ble and have no worries
of trouble the govern-
ment has passed laws so
privacy is guaranteed
and there are absolutely
no penalties... regardless.
Some will say it's
hard to trust this as

truth, but according to
the census official work-
ing directly with the
Madison County "Com-
plete Count Committee,"
(exclusively made up of
county residents), all cen-
sus records are totally
private, even from other
government agencies.
They are literally sealed
under law for 72 years,
like top secret govern-
ment documents.
Of course, many may
take a little more time
and effort to believe it's
safe and necessary, and
that's the mission of the
Complete Count Commit-
tee. Working closely with
schools, churches and
other community part-
ners to get their informa-
tion to all residents, their
message is clear: Every-
body matters and "Count
Me In, 2010!"

WILBO The Clown Says

To NFCC, "Live United"
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
With the Madison County United Way campaign heating up, organizers re-
cently took a moment to thank all who have given donations, as well as those
who have enrolled in payroll deduct programs at businesses and organizations
around the county Chair Willy Gamalero and United Way Representative Mary
Carol Kaney have been assisted by dozens of volunteers, each of who continues
to canvass the county for this worthwhile project.
Leading by example, Gamalero volunteered to visit North Florida Commu-
nity College for their in-service day on Oct. 27, which is held to give staff an op-
portunity to review insurance options and other benefits related to
employment. Giving huge thanks to President John Grosskopf for graciously
allowing the United Way campaign to join the event, Gamalero set out for the
function, supplies in hand.
At the gathering, however, Gamalero was nowhere to be found. Fortunately,
a suitable replacement had been located his name was,
"WILBO the clown." Similar in size and stature to
Gamalero, but admittedly much better looking,
Wilbo manned the booth with great success, re-
ceiving commitments from over two-dozen visi-
tors. The charming clown apparently couldn't say
enough about the "LIVE UNITED" campaign and
its importance to Madison County
"Every dollar we raise stays in Madison County,
and I just want to thank everyone, and especially
President Grosskopf and his great staff. They are
truly wonderful and very generous," Wilbo stat-
"If you see that Gamalero guy though,
tl \ \\ tell him there's no need to come back be-
cause Wilbo has it covered," he added
The afternoon was fun, but the dollars
raised are serious business for the orga-
Snizations they serve. This reporter did
Catch up with Gamalero later, who re-
marked he had been a victim of a hit
and run, saying, "Did you see a clown
come through here?"

First Baptist

By Kristin Finney

"You have made
known to me the path of
life; You willfill me with
joy in your presence, with
eternal pleasures at Your
right hand. "Psalm 16:11
Blessed is the heart
that is open to Christ's
word and wonderful is
the joy that His love
brings to His believers.
Sunday morning be-
gan with a video about
the Christmas Shoe Box
fundraiser. This
fundraiser is hosted by
Samaritan's Purse. Our
church has a goal of 150
boxes and everyone is
asked to participate.
These boxes are filled
with personal items
such as soap and tooth-
brushes; as well as small
toys like yoyos and Bar-
bie dolls. Each box is
sent to a needy location
and given to a boy or girl
in that country. Along
with the boxes the chil-
dren are given booklets
that tell the story of
Christ in their language.
If you have any ques-
tions contact Judy
Following this
special video, Doug
Finney gave the offerto-
ry prayer. The worship
choir followed with a
powerful piece entitled
"Preach the Word." Pas-
tor Ferrell's message
came from 1 Peter 3, 1
John 1:9, and Hebrews
11:6. He spoke of why
our prayers might be
hindered. Non-confessed

sins, unresolved argu-
ments, and selfishness
are a few things that can
hinder our prayers. We
must also all remember
one of the most impor-
tant things you can do in
life is to pray for other
people. Prayers do not
need to be only for our-

The Madison County High School Cowboys go through the serving line as Head Coach Frankie Carroll
checks everything out.

Feeding a houseful
of hungry teenagers is
not easy. Imagine the
teenagers amplified and
multiplied. Also imagine
that they are not ordi-
nary teenagers. They are
athletes who eat like ath-
letes. They are not just
any athletes, either.
They are football play-
Many Madison
County churches and in-
dividuals have gotten to-
gether this year to feed
the varsity football team
both breakfast and the
pre-game meal.
The people who have
done so have been pleas-
antly surprised to find

how gentlemanly and
congenial the crew led
by Head Coach Frankie
Carroll is.
Vernelle Allen, who
taught school for 30
years in Suwannee and
Polk Counties, was quite
impressed with the
young men when Mid-
way Church of God fed
the team on Friday, Oct.
"Everyone came
through and told every-
one of us serving them
'thank you,"' she said.
Midway Church of
God is like the other
churches who have
helped the players strap
on their feed bags on Fri-
day afternoons. They did
it as a ministry
Before the meal on
Friday, Pastor Retis
Flowers led the team in
grace and the players all
reached out and touched
other players, signifying
that they are, in all re-
spects, a team.
Among the other
churches and individu-
als who have fed the
Cowboys this season are:

I've Always Wanted A Pony For My Birthday

And now my wish has come true!

By Kevin Bare
Special contribution to Greene Publishing, Inc.
I've wanted a miniature pony as far back as I
can remember. They are absolutely the neatest ani-
mals. As I got older and had kids of my own, I looked
forward to visiting the circus or petting zoo so the
kids could ride. But now, we don't have to wait for
the circus anymore, because last Sunday, Oct. 25, my
childhood wish came true for my children, nieces
and nephews when I bought a pony for the family.
The pony's name is "Little Bit." He is 11 years
old and was as happy to join our family, as we were
to have him.
Unfortunately, not all of the kids can ride Little
Bit because of the 70-pound weight limit, but that
didn't keep everybody from immediately falling in
love with him.
Our older kids, Nicole (14) and Cody Little (13)
went with me to pick up the pony, which we brought
out as a surprise for our son Zachary Little (8), and
his cousins, Levi (6) and Devin Singleton (4).
When we unloaded the pony, Zachary's face said
it all. Now, getting him to share may be a challenge,
but seriously, it was everything a parent would ever
anticipated from fulfilling a childhood wish for a
"I am very happy that daddy bought me a pony,
and I hope that I never out grow him. I want to ride
forever," Zachary declared.
Levi was just as excited. "I like him and I had so
much fun riding him. I can't wait to ride him again,"
he said.
Devin Singleton really got caught up in the mo-
ment too. "Yee haw, giddy up Little Bit!" he

family. He is available for children's parties and spe-
cial events for an affordable fee.

were bummed out they couldn't ride, but again, they
were very happy to welcome the mini horse to
the family They each took turns walking
Little Bit for the young riders.
"Besides, daddy may have bought a
pony for the little kids, but he bought me a
horse," Nicole gratefully pointed out.
My other two children, Jessalyn (10)
and Kage Bare, who turns 7 on Nov. 11,
have not seen Little Bit, as they are with
us every other weekend. I'm sure they will
echo the sentiments of the other
kids, and it will definitely be a
birthday wish comes true
for Kage.
We have also
decided to of-
fer Little
Bit's ser-
vices for an
fee at chil-
dren's par-
ties and
events. For

mation call

find Wildlife hidden In Your Yard

When you look out
the window, you probably
see trees, bushes and
sometimes birds eating
wild seeds or berries. But
what if you go outside
and look about? Do you
see ants crawling on the
ground? Maybe a butter-
fly sitting on a flower? Did
you know there are many
kinds of animals you can-
not see unless you look re-
ally hard?
All sorts of animals -
big and small live in
your backyard. Some fly,
some crawl, some jump,
and some slither. They

live under rocks, logs and
leaves; up in bushes or
trees; near water; and in
holes in the ground and
cracks in your house.
For your first Back-
yard Safari, look under a
plant's leaves, especially if
they look as if something
chewed on them. This is
where caterpillars hang
out. They look like worms
with many legs. Some
caterpillars look hairy,
while others are smooth.
Caterpillars change into
pretty butterflies or
moths. Leaves hide cater-
pillars from birds that

Ask an adult to help
you turn over a log or
large stone (be sure to
turn the log toward you in
case there is a snake hid-
ing underneath). It is not
hard to find a beetle be-
cause there are many dif-
ferent ones. In fact, they
are the largest group of
insects on Earth. Look for
the bugs with biting
mouths and hard front
wings that protect them.
Some beetles help
people by using their jaws
to eat tiny critters that
chew on flowers or dine
on vegetable gardens.
Other beetles are pests be-
cause they eat the food
people grow.
Beetles lay their eggs

in dead, fallen trees or
logs. When you turned
the log over, did you also
see tiny, white, squishy
"worms" wriggling
around? These grubs are
baby beetles. Other ani-
mals and bugs that call
logs and fallen trees home
are pill bugs (roly-polies),
ants, salamanders,
lizards, frogs, earth-
worms, termites and cen-
