County Votes


To Buy EMS


Property For


$662,000
T he year has
passed quickly
since the
Madison County Board
of County Commission-
ers voted unanimously
to find a new home for
Emergency Medical Ser- --
vices. The department
had been operating from
a deficient facility for
years, when a health haz-
ard was discovered.
Since that time, county.
officials and EMS Direc-
tor Juan Botino have Alfred Martin
been searching for a suitable property to purchase,
renovate and/or build.
During the meeting of Nov. 4, the board ap-
proved an offer of $662,000 for the Robinson Ford
Dealership property Numbers in excess of $800,000
had been mentioned with little progress in prior
meetings, and then Commissioner Renetta Parrish
suggested an offer of $500,000, which she believed
more in line with the current economy At the Nov. 4
meeting, Robinson returned an offer of $750,000,
which died for lack of a second when a motion was
made to accept it.
At that point, Commissioner Alfred Martin reit-
erated his concern with the price, making a motion
for a counter-proposal of $600,000, which was sec-
onded and forwarded to Robinson. Before the meet-
ing concluded, the two sides settled on $662,000.

Anew weather observation station has
been established in Madison, Florida.
On Thurs-
day, October 29, 2009 representatives of the Na-
tional Weather Service (NWS) in Tallahassee
installed new temperature and rainfall monitor-
ing equipment inside the city limits. Mike Vise,
Observation Program Leader and Jim Bolden,
COOP Focal Point provided the manual labor and
monitoring devices for measuring daily high and
low temperatures and 24 rainfall totals. Volun-
teer observers who are part of the Cooperative
Observer Program (COOP) will report data daily
to the NWS for inclusion in the nationwide data-
base. Data for the United States has been collect-
ed in this manner since 1890.

take observations on farms, in urban and suburban
areas, National Parks, seashores and mountain

The Nestle Waters Madison
County Bottling Facility to-
day made a $10,000 contri-
bution toward equipping and
furnishing the new Lee Public Li-
brary. The money represents 25 per-
cent of Madison County's original
goal of $40,000 that is being raised
from individuals and businesses in
the area.
"Nestle Waters has a proud histo-
ry of strong community involvement

and good corporate citizenship," said
Rob Fisher, Supply Chain Manager.
"We believe the Lee Public Library is
a wonderful example of private com-
panies working with local govern-
ment to promote education and create
a local center for learning."
Madison County received state
grant funding to construct the new,
5,200-square-foot facility adjacent to
Lee Elementary School on U.S. 90.
However, it was left to the local citi-
zens to raise the money for books,
computers, desks and other ameni-
ties. With local government budgets
strained during the recent recession,
interested citizens created Friends of
the Lee Library, Inc. to reach out to lo-
cal businesses and individuals for
help in the effort.

Two Deputies, Two Wrecks


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
T wo Madison
County deputies
were involved in
accidents in patrol vehicles
during the month of Octo-
ber.
According to the
Florida Highway Patrol,
the first accident oc-
curred on Oct. 13 at 8:18
a.m. as Inv. Tina DeMot-
sis was traveling west-
bound on Interstate 10 in


the inside lane. A deer en-
tered the roadway and
DeMotsis was unable to
avoid the deer, striking
the vehicle into the deer.
The vehicle continued
traveling west until com-
ing to a final rest in the
median facing west.
Damage to the vehi-
cle, which has already
been repaired, was esti-
mated at $3,000.
The next accident in-
volved Madison County


Reserve Deputy Mike
Fairley It happened on
Oct. 24 at 2:50 p.m. at the I-
10/221 exit, south of
Greenville.
According to the
FHP, an unknown driver
was traveling east in the
outside lane. Fairley's pa-
trol car approached the
other car from the rear at
a higher rate of speed in
the inside lane.
Fairley said that the
other vehicle traveled


into the inside lane into
his path. To avoid the ve-
hicle, Fairley traveled off
the roadway onto the
south shoulder. The pa-
trol car rotated clockwise
on the south shoulder, col-
liding into a tree with its
left side. After the impact,
the patrol car continued
to rotate and collided into
a tree with its rear. After
the impact, the car came
to a final rest on the south
shoulder, facing north.

Abbie And .


The Elephant
My sister, Abbie, has a lot more courage than I 1 *
ever thought she would. As a child, I remember as
she would be watching a certain razor commercial
on TV and the man would cut himself shaving. She
would scream. When an old science fiction show en-
titled Space 1999 would come on and a spaceship or
something collided with Earth, she would scream. "
When my mama would cut chicken, Abbie would o
cry, "Mama, don't cut that chick-chick." When Dad- _O _I_,,,
dy would be standing on a chair, changing a light
bulb, she would say, "You'll fall."
I thought that Abbie would have those fears in
her forever. She doesn't have any of them now. She
no longer talks like she did when she was younger
but she drove home her courageousness this past
Monday evening when she rode an elephant at the -
circus.
I had been planning on taking her over to the
pony rides but she kept trying to climb up the plat- o
form to get an elephant ride. I finally relented and
gave my money to the woman collecting it and Abbie _
got to ride on the elephant. My brother, Danny, and I
also rode. I will admit that I was afraid of falling but q
Abbie was having the time of her life, just laughing. 0 m
The Bible tells us that "Laughter doeth the heart C
good, like a medicine" and I know that on Monday
evening, there was no medicine in the world that
could make me feel as good as Abbie's laughter. *

To

Stay

Young
1. Throw out
nonessential numbers.
This includes age,
weight and height. Let
the doctors worry about
them. That is why you
pay 'them!'
2. Keep only cheer-
fulfriends. The grouch-
es pull you down
3. Keep learning.
Learn more about the
computer, crafts, gar-
dening, whatever Nev-
er let the brain idle. 'An
idle mind is the devil's
workshop. 'And the dev-
il's name is Alzheimer's
4. Enjoy the simple
things
5. Laugh often, long
and loud. Laugh until
you gasp for breath
6. The tears hap-
pen. Endure, grieve,
and move on. The only
person, who is with us
our entire life, is our-
selves. Be ALIVE while
you are alive
7. Surround your-
self with what you love,
whether it's family,
pets, keepsakes, music,
plants, hobbies, what-
ever Your home is your
refuge
8. Cherish your
health: If it is good,
preserve it. If it is un-
stable, improve it. If it
is beyond what you can
improve, get help
9 Don't take guilt
trips. Take a trip to the
mall, even to the next
county; to a foreign
country but NOT to
where the guilt is
10. Tell the people
you love that you love
them, at every opportu-
nity

Survive The

Season Without

Gaining Weight
One tradition Americans have we cele-
brate most occasions with food. Now, we are
about to embark on the holiday stretch start-
ing with Thanksgiving and extending into
New Year's Day. In other words, you are look-
ing at six weeks of eating more than you nor-
mally eat.
A traditional holiday meal can supply up
to 3,000 calories; that's more calories from a
single meal than most people eat in an entire
day. In addition to holiday meals, there are
always baked goods and desserts at every
gathering.
It is possible to eat some of everything
during the holidays and not take in too many
calories. The key is to eat sensibly, be physi-
cally active and reduce calories whenever
possible; realizing that some of the foods we
eat during the holidays will be high in calo-
ries.
Here are a few ideas from Extension Spe-
cialists to help you avoid consuming exces-
sive calories over the holiday season.
Eat moderate portions of food. Keep ex-
tra servings to a minimum.
Leave butter and sugar off the table at
mealtime.
Substitute low-calorie alternatives for
food high in fat or sugar. For example, low-
fat sour cream can replace the traditional
high fat version. Reduce the amount of sug-
ar in your sweet potatoes and add vanilla ex-
tract and unsweetened applesauce for added
flavor.
Serve a fresh vegetable tray with a low
fat dip instead of potato chips.
Substitute reduced-fat cheeses and fat
free cream cheese in your recipes.
Steam, bake or microwave vegetables
rather than fry and season with herbs and
spices.
Replace whole milk and cream with low-
fat or skim milk or low fat evaporated milk
in puddings, soups and baked products.
There is now fat free half and half on the
market and it is hard to tell the difference in
taste.
Lighten up your holiday baked goods by
cutting the amount of sugar by one quarter.
To help reduce cholesterol, substitute
egg whites in recipes calling for whole eggs.
Use two egg whites in place of each whole
egg in baked products. You can also use liq-
uid eggs which is egg whites without yolks.
During the holidays, schedule time for
physical activity to help burn off extra calo-
ries. Take a 15 minute walk during your
lunch hour. Every step counts, so park fur-
ther out in the parking lot when you go to the
store. Household chores and yard work will
also burn extra calories.
Sensible eating and staying physically ac-
tive during the holiday season will keep your
weight in check and keep the extra pounds
off. For more information on nutrition and
food preparation, contact the Madison Coun-
ty Extension Service.

I Didn t


Know That!

Why are they called "cosmetics?"
By Karlen Evins
Every now and again, I run across something
that simply blows my mind. I never know when
these moments will hit. Sometimes I am reading.
Sometimes I am watching the Discover Channel.
This week, I was at Walgreens picking up make
up.
For whatever reason, the word "cosmetics"
struck me as...well, universal. Was it me, or was
there a cosmos in there somewhere?
A word I apply everyday (literally), I came
home and started digging for the universal mean-
ing of makeup. Turns out that this word has far
more going for it than meets the eye.
Deriving from the Greek word, kosmos, we
have Greek philosopher and mathematician
Pythagoras to thank for the word (cosmos) he
coined to sum up the perfect order of the uni-
verse. From this came the Greek verb kosmein,
meaning "to put into order" and from this kos-
metikos (meaning "to arrange or adorn") was
born.
It is no doubt in our make up (pun intended),
that women and cosmetics would go back to the
dawn of time, but what I found fascinating was
that the labels are as fitting today as they were
when the root words were formed.
For instance, mascara (abbreviated version


of masquerade), traces
back to the word for
mask to mean covering
(as in the eyes).
Rouge (as our
French teachers taught
us) means red, though
historically rouge
traces back to ancient
Egypt where the origi-
nal was applied to both
lips and face, in efforts
to appear youthful and
vibrant. When taken to
extremes, it became as-
sociated with low
morals (as in Victorian
times), leaving women
to pinch their cheeks
and bite their lips to
create the same blush-
ing affect.
Order out of chaos.
Makes sense to me.
What works for ex-
plaining the cosmos,
pretty much sums up
what happens to me
each morning as I
reach for my paints.


PERSONAL INJURY &

WRONGFUL DEATH

The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon
advertisements. Before you decide, ask the lawyer to send you free written information
about their qualifications and experience.


I'm Sorry
I feel I need to add my apologies, dear read-
ers, to Jacob for any confusion my last column
and its reprints may have caused. Thank you, Ja-
cob.
In that column, I posed a few theological
questions that could have led to your asking,
"Could she be questioning God?" No. No way
would I have the temerity to do such a thing! But
after posing those questions, I wrote that our an-
swer, now, is in "Now we see darkly...but then
face to face." In other words, if we trust in God
we can believe that we will be completely an-
swered only when the veil is lifted. And now I will
try to stay out of the theological field for by hav-
ing that one sentence omitted, I'm sure many of
you may have been wondering, "What is she try-
ing to say?" And I'm sorry.
So, I will return to what I know more about:
God's bounty, His gift of beauty on Earth, and all
of His many blessings for which we should al-
ways be thankful. And good neighbors.
I was pleasantly surprised Friday night when
one of mine, whom I had not seen in quite some
time, knocked on my door and asked, "May I
come in?" then asked if I knew who she was! It
had been that long. I replied, "Of course, I do."
She had brought me a container of home-
cooked chicken noodle soup still hot from the
table and it was some of the best I've ever eaten!
Quite a change, too, from my usual night before
Halloween. The next night, daughter Mona, who
had arrived earlier, and I spent Halloween admir-
ing the beautiful full moon and just enjoying a
mother-daughter talk. She saw colors of pale
pink and gold close around the moon and could-
n't understand that I didn't see colors, only that
beautiful orb with scattered pale white and dark
gray clouds scudding across it.
Vicki, who had been in Jacksonville for the
weekend, was back in time to watch the moon
with Mona the next night and agreed with her on
the colors. I would believe that younger eyes saw
things I couldn't but, at age 90, my eyesight is bet-
ter than theirs! Thank the Lord!
Have a wonderful week. I'm sure most of you
love this cooler weather and are looking forward
to more, especially for the holidays. So long for
now.

Calico Arts

And Crafts

Coming Soon
As fall approaches, you can feel the excitement
building. On November 14th and 15th, the much an-
ticipated Calico Holiday Arts and Crafts Show will
once again take place in Moultrie, Ga. Join the fun
and fellowship as you leisurely browse over 400
booths, a treasure trove of custom gifts, seasonal de-
cor and holiday confections.
The rich diversity of our Southern heritage
abounds in the crafts of returning favorites and re-in-
vents itself in exclusive new offerings from our re-
gion. Imagine surprising that special someone with a
gift of limited edition jewelry made from vintage
"ephemera" by Betsy Carr of Asheville, NC. Or treat
yourself to an exceptional piece of hammered silver
or pottery cabochon by Hollywood, SC, artisan, Caro-
line Sandlin, current president of the Charleston
Crafts Guild. Delight in the whimsy of "floral an-
gels", with each angel featuring a favorite flower and
its own unique tag and story, designed by Chery
Miller of Dollightful in Collierville, TN. The timeless
art of hand-thrown, kiln-fired pottery from the red
clay hills of Louisville, MS, comes to life at the hands
of Frank Stewart as he continues a family tradition
dating from 1888. His custom collectibles combine
both form and function in a beautiful link to our past.
This is just a sampling of the one-of-a-kind crafts that
will be offered at this year's holiday show.
Here is your chance to get all your holiday shop-
ping done in short order! Not only will you support
the local economy, find exclusive gifts for everyone on
your list, save time and money, but you will have fun
doing it! Make it a family affair as there is something
here for everyone. Gift items include home and gar-
den decor, holiday ornaments and seasonal outdoor
decorations, gourmet foods and confections, custom
clothing and jewelry, toys, pottery, floral arrange-
ments, painted glass, tooled leather and woodworking,
antiques and so much more. A variety of entertain-
ment for both the young and young-at-heart will in-
clude visits with Santa and clogging performers from
across the Southeast. Each visitor will have a chance
to win a piece of handcrafted furniture donated by
John Bruce.
Site of the show is Spence Field, home of the Sun-
belt Ag Expo, located 4 miles southeast of U.S. Hwy
319 on Highway 133 in Moultrie, Georgia. Gates open
from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and 10:00 a.m.

EMS Property

"Finding a new home for EMS was a priority, but
since we're using money from taxpayers, we also
have a priority of making sure we're getting the
most out of their money. Saving over $150,000 from
the first numbers thrown around, and $90,000 less
than the motion made earlier in the meeting, was
good for the county," Martin explained.
The property will require renovations to fit EMS
use. Those proposals will follow shortly.

Chief
Serving for almost 11
years on the First District
Court of Appeals, Edwin
Browning, Jr. retired at
the end of September. He
is, however, continuing to
serve as a judge until the
middle of November.
Appointed by Gov.
Lawton Chiles, Browning
began his career as an ap-
peals judge on Dec. 1,
1998. Chiles attended his
swearing-in ceremony
and died eight days later.


Judge
Browning has served
under Gov. Chiles, Gov.
Buddy Mackay (who
filled out Chiles' term af-
ter his untimely death),
Gov. Jeb Bush and Gov
Charlie Crist.
One of the things
that stood out to Brown-
ing during his tenure as
judge was the 2000 elec-
tion year toss-up battle
for the U.S. Presidency be-
tween challengers George
W Bush and Al Gore. Al-

As the name implies, "Whole Child" is concerned
with all parts of a child's life family, neighborhood,
church and school including vital concerns like em-
ployment and education opportunities for their par-
ents. Only this way can lifelong happiness be realized,
and after all, every American has a right to "the pursuit
of happiness."
The Whole Child mission, which began with the
Lawton Chiles Foundation in Florida, asks everyone to:
"Imagine a community where everyone works together
to make sure children thrive," further stating that a
whole child is, "one who attains physical, intellectual
and spiritual well-being; experiences strong, positive
family attachment; interacts constructively in a social
context: has a sense of hone: and lives in an environ-


though the case was
passed on to the
Florida Supreme
Court without a de-
cision by the Court
of Appeals, Brown-
ing's name, as well
as the names of the
other judges, was
featured prominent-
ly in the national
news at that time.
Although the
District Court of
Appeals only makes
decisions, which
can stop at life im-
prisonment, Brown-
ing did help the


Florida Supreme Court
decide a death penalty
case one time.
The Supreme Court
was deadlocked at 3-3
and one of the judges
had to recuse himself
from the trial. They
asked Browning, as
Chief Judge of the First
District Court of Ap-
peals, to sit in and help
make the decision. The
question was whether
the defendant's attorney
had done a good job or
not. Browning voted that
the attorney had not ade-
quately representing his


ment that encourages him or her to succeed."
Practically speaking, such large goals must obvi-
ously include the child's family and community An un-
employed or socially challenged parent, for instance,
must also receive support to create a constructive envi-
ronment for the child. Similarly, an unhealthy child
must receive prompt and convenient medical care in or-
der to thrive in other parts of his or her life. The process
potentially involves numerous agencies and resources,
and that is why Whole Child was formed.

The representative would follow up by creating a
detailed, but easy-to-use, evaluation with the parents
that is then matched with agencies providing any need-
ed services.
The process is private and very comfortable for
both the child and parent. The simple review could re-
sult in anything from dental services at the health de-
partment, to special education programs, to help
findingjobs whatever is needed. Partnerships are also
a key ingredient. Due to its central role and daily con-
nection to school age children, the district school sys-

Physical and Mental Health
Safe and Nurturing Environment
Economic Stability
Quality Education
Social Interaction and Competence
Spiritual Foundation and Strength
The Whole Child Leadership Council serving
Madison County (the coalition also covers Jefferson
and Taylor as well) is currently performing a final re-
view of the system. In addition, staff and volunteers
are reaching out to various centers of influence, civic
and social circles, and directly through the Healthy
Start offices in Greenville.
The initial goal is simply to make everyone aware
of this unique and outstanding resource that has been
several years in the making. Materials continue to be
distributed countywide, as partnerships are being
formed with hundreds of relevant providers.

Leading by example, the leadership of Madison
County Community Bank, along with their staff, has
achieved a unique and impressive milestone in the
Madison County United Way Campaign: 100 percent
participation. Utilizing an affordable payroll deduc-
tion, the bank averaged a whopping $305 per employee
on an annual basis.
Willy Gamalero, the local campaign chair, and
Mary Carol Kaney, United Way representative for the
county, were extremely pleased to hear the news dur-
ing a recent organizer's lunch. Executives Ed Meggs
and Howard Phillips, both longstanding supporters of


the program, were grateful and pleased with the re-
sults.
In an effort to add a little incentive to participation,
all who pledged a donation received entry into two
prize drawings, each for a two-day stay at popular bed
and breakfasts in Georgia.
The first lucky winner, Joyce Bethea, won a trip for
two to Lil' Bears B&B located in Mineral Bluff, Ga. The
other winner was Marcia Webb, who received a stay at
the Shalom B&B in Tifton, Ga. Both were appreciative
and pleased to help the local agencies served by the
United Way campaign.

This dream of a center would give the elderly a
chance to interact and socialize with other seniors.
Eventually their dream became a reality
A New Senior Center Building Is Coming
The present location does not have sufficient
space to meet the needs of the elderly population due
to an increase in population growth and needs of the
elderly. The present site is 4,634 square feet. The
Board of Directors, Advisory Council and Executive
Director are pleased to announce that construction is
underway on a new 10,000 square foot facility located
on Harvey Greene Drive that will sufficiently meet
the needs of the elderly population. However, this
makes operational funds more important than ever.
The organization is seeking donations for this
project and others serving Madison County Seniors
who can't afford them otherwise. If you have any
questions, do not hesitate to contact Rosa Richard-
son, Executive Director at 850-973-4241 or 850-973-2006.
So again, why contribute through United Way?
Nowhere can you find more ways to touch others
and build a strong, caring community than through
United Way. You may choose to give money, help iden-
tify our community's priority need areas, or volun-
teer your time to mentor a young adult or ease an
elderly person's loneliness the possibilities are
limitless.
Get Together, Get Focused, Get Results
United Way's unique ability to bring people, re-
sources and needs together means you'll always be
able to contribute in the way that is most fulfilling to
you. By helping, you and your neighbors pool your in-
terests and resources ("Get together"), then focus on
the best ways to address our community's most press-
ing needs ("Get focused"), United Way helps you
change and save lives ("Get results") through local
human service programs that are right here for all of
us, in good times and bad. That's "the United Way"
That's our United Way.
Local
United Way is a local agency, not a chapter of a
national organization. Your donation helps people
right here!
Trustworthy
Your donation is safe with United Way For many
decades, we've listened to you to learn how you want
your donation spent. Our financial policies are care-
fully reviewed and audited by an independent, certi-
fied accounting firm and community volunteers.
Value
100 cents of every dollar you contribute goes di-
rectly to Madison County services, meaning your dol-
lars reach people you want to help.
Focus and Impact
United Way enables you to increase the power of
your gift by focusing funds and resources on our com-
munity's most pressing areas of need. Through your
support, United Way agencies are available to help
citizens of the Big Bend 24 hours a day, 365 days a
year.
Quality

sound fiscal policies and meet strict standards of ser-
vice. Trained community volunteers who represent
you oversee distribution of money to local agencies.

November means
the 2009-10 huntin' sea-
son's in full swing. This
month, general gun, fall
turkey, quail and gray
squirrel, snipe and the
second phase of mourn-
ing and white-winged
dove hunting seasons
open.
The first thing you
need to do is pick up a
$17 Florida resident
hunting license. Non-
residents pay $46.50 for a
10-day license or $151.50
for 12 months.
If you plan to hunt
one of Florida's many
wildlife management ar-
eas (WMAs), you'll also
need a $26.50 manage-
ment area permit, but
don't forget to study the
brochure for the specific
area you plan to hunt,
because dates, bag limits
and rules differ greatly
from area to area.
You can get these
brochures at tax collec-
tors' offices and regional
Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) of-
fices in close proximity
to the WMA, or you can
download them from
MyFWC.com/Hunting.
You can buy your li-
cense and permits over
the telephone by calling
toll-free 888-HUNT-
FLORIDA or online at
www.wildlifelicense.co
m/fl. Just have your
credit card ready You
also can purchase them
from tax collectors' of-
fices and most retail out-


lets that sell hunting and
fishing supplies.
The general gun sea-
son runs Nov. 14 Jan. 24
in the Central Hunting
Zone. In the Northwest
Zone, it comes in
Thanksgiving Day and
lasts four days through
Nov. 29. Two weeks later,
the season reopens Dec.
12 and runs through Feb.
17. For readers hunting
the South Hunting Zone,
the general gun season's
already in and lasts
through Jan. 10.
Hunters can take
bucks having at least
one antler 5 inches or
longer. On private lands,
the daily bag limit for
deer is two.
On private lands,
hunters can take wild
hogs year-round with no
bag or size limits. On
most but not all -
WMAs, there's also no
bag or size limit on wild
hogs, and hunters can
take them during any
hunting season except
spring turkey. Check the
WMA brochure to be
certain.
The highly antici-
pated antlerless deer
season, often called "doe
week," is Dec. 19-25 in
the Northwest Zone,
Nov. 21-27 in the Central
Zone and Nov. 7-13 in the
South Hunting Zone.
During doe week,
the daily bag limit's one
buck and one doe, or two
bucks. You may not take
two does in one day like
you may during archery
season, and spotted


produces peanuts, soy-
beans and cattle, will rep-
resent District 3. Brad
Etheridge of Williston,
who with his family oper-
ates a livestock back-
grounding operation, will
represent District 9.
Jacob Larson, newly-elected class presi-
dent of the FFBF Young Farmer and Rancher
Leadership Group, also will join the board.
Jeffery Hamrick, a Madison county rancher,
will continue to serve on the board as imme-
diate past class president.
Michelle Williamson, chair of the FFBF
State Women's Leadership Committee, and
Virginia "Ginny" Paarlberg, Women's vice
chair, will continue to serve on the state
board.
The Florida Farm Bureau Federation's
State Women's Leadership Committee re-
mains unchanged from last year. Michelle
Williamson of Sydney was re-elected chair.
Williamson and Vice-chair Ginny Paarlberg
serve on the Florida Farm Bureau board of
directors and Paarlberg serves on the Ameri-
can Farm Bureau Women's Leadership Com-
mittee. Ann Christmas of Chipley was
elected to represent District 1; Norma Jean
Parrish will represent District 3; Cheryl
Flood of Frostproof was elected to represent
District 5, Laurie Schuller will represent Dis-
trict 7 and Abbie Rolph of Century is the
Young Farmer and Rancher representative.


fawns are never legal
game. And by the way,
WMAs do not have an
antlerless deer season.
If you hunt with
deer dogs anywhere in
Florida, special rules
and registration require-
ments may apply, so call
the FWC for details.
Fall turkey season
in the Northwest Hunt-
ing Zone is Nov. 26-29
and Dec. 12 Jan. 17. In
the Central and South
zones, it's Nov. 14 Jan.
10. Only bearded
turkeys and gobblers are
legal game, and you
must have a $5 turkey
permit to hunt them.
The bag limit's one bird
per day, and a total of
two during the archery,
crossbow, muzzleloading
gun and fall turkey sea-
sons combined.
It's also against the
law to hunt turkeys in
Holmes County during
the fall season.
Quail and gray
squirrel season runs
statewide Nov. 14 -
March 7. There's a daily
bag limit of 12 for each,
but shooting fox squir-
rels is against the law.
Shooting hours for
deer, turkeys, quail and
gray squirrels is a half-
hour before sunrise to a
half-hour after sunset.
All legal firearms, muz-
zleloaders, bows, cross-
bows and handguns are
legal for taking these
resident game animals
during the general gun,
antlerless deer, fall
turkey, and quail and


gray squirrel seasons.
Snipe hunting in
Florida ranks second in
the nation in number of
birds harvested each
year, and the season
runs Nov. 1 Feb. 15
statewide. The second
phase of the mourning
and white-winged dove
season also comes in
this month and runs
Nov. 14-29. Shooting
hours for migratory
game birds are one-half
hour before sunrise to
sunset. The bag limit for
snipe is eight; and for
doves, the bag limit is 15.
You must get a no-
cost migratory bird per-
mit if you plan to hunt
snipe, doves or any other
migratory game birds.
The FWC even pro-
vides an online "Dove
Hunters' Hotline,"
which gives up-to-date
information on Florida's
public dove fields. The
address is
MyFWC.com/Dove, and
it's updated every Thurs-
day throughout the dove
season. Information in-
cludes dove densities,
previous weeks' har-
vests and field condi-
tions.
Whether small-game
hunting with friends
and family or hunting
solo, going after that
monster buck, boar hog
or big tom, November
brings loads of great
hunting opportunities.
Here's wishing you a
happy Thanksgiving and
a successful hunting sea-
son.


High school and college students, Boy Scout
troops and others helped make Otter Springs Park &
Campground a better place to swim, fish and camp.
On Oct. 24, about 254 volunteers participated in a
cleanup effort at the park. The event was organized
by Current Problems in partnership with Gilchrist
County, Karst Environmental Services/Karst Pro-
ductions, WUFT and Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District (SRWMD).
A dive crew and several Boy Scout members
worked to retrieve 35 large rocks from the bottom of
Otter Spring. A group of college students helped
clean out trash and other debris in and around a
sinkhole on the property Other volunteers paddled
in kayaks and canoes to help clean the spring run. In
all, an estimated 8,215 pounds of garbage including
concrete, tires and a dumpster filled with trash bags
- was collected.
"We are thrilled with the job all the volunteers
did. They pitched in and made a tremendous differ-
ence at the park," said Nancy Nieman, park manag-
er for Otter Springs Park & Campground.
Nieman said while staff at the park keeps the
campground and hiking trails litter-free, volunteers
at the cleanup took care of areas less noticeable.
"They were going back in the woods, the bushes,
the rough stuff," she said.
Current Problems, which headed up the event,
is an environmental group that conducts cleanup ef-
forts for Northeast Florida's rivers, lakes, springs
and creeks.
Fritzi Olson, Current Problems executive direc-
tor, said cleaning up waterways is important to pro-
tect the aquifer and ocean.
"What goes into them (waterways), goes into our
drinking water. What doesn't, will eventually float
into the ocean," she said.
Olson said cleanup events serve as a teaching
tool that demonstrates the effects of stormwater
runoff and illegal dumping.
"What we do on land affects our surface and
ground waters," she said.
Otter Springs Park & Campground, in Trenton,
is owned by SRWMD and managed by Gilchrist
County

Back in July Wanda and I
moved into a nice home on
Dusty Miller Ave (Hwy 254).
We are the second house on
the right if you are coming
from Colin Kelly Highway.
Like I said, we tried hard,
but even with two small stor-
age buildings, we have too
much stuff, and we are going
to have to sell a bunch of it.

In truth, I could have gotten
all of my stuff in the house,
but then we would have had
to sell all of Wanda's things,
and every guy out there
knows that was a bad idea
before I even thought of it.
So, I am selling some of my
things, tools, collectibles,
some fishing poles, actually
as little as I can get away
with, but there will be a pile.
Wanda is selling all sorts of
things none of which I get
to pick out.

I have to tell you, I am sell-
ing my stuff cheap. I want it
gone so I can move around.
In fact I'm going to have one
area with just free stuff.
Good stuff, but I have way
too much of it.

So, the yard sale is this Sat-
urday, November 7th, start-
ing at 8 am. But don't come
to Dusty Miller Ave for just
our yard sale. Further down
the road Phyllis Williams is
having one too. I hear that
other folks might be having
one also, so just come to
Dusty Miller Ave and look
for the signs. See you then.
