Honored With

Patriotic Praise
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A Veterans Day Ob- -
servance Program was
held at 11 a.m. on Nov. -
11 at Madison County
Community Bank. The
customary observance
honored veterans
throughout the county,
as guest speakers "
moved and inspired the
crowd with thoughts Judge Edwin Browning
and memories dating
back to World War II.
The ceremony was presided over by Ted Ens-
minger, executive director of the Madison County
Chamber of Commerce and Tourism. The keynote
speaker was Judge Edwin Browning, who tearfully
reminded all in attendance that honoring our vet-
erans is shown not only in the appreciation we of-
fer during tributes, but also in making sure they
receive the resources, benefits and treatment de-
serving of their commitment and sacrifice.
Twice during the ceremony, listeners were
treated to the singing of Cindy Vees, who opened
with a rousing rendition of the National Anthem,
followed later by "God Bless America." Both tunes
served well to underscore the patriotic and rever-
ent nature of the day.
Early in the ceremony, Jerome Wyche read the
official Veterans Day Proclamation, an action dat-
ing back to 1918 in America. And although the cele-
bration has gone through a few changes over the
years, the tradition has remained the same. This is
especially evident in Madison County that has a
proud history of supporting her men and women in
the service. Veterans Affairs Officer Oliver Bradley
continues to oversee that task to great praise.

Dear Editor, An opinion
Today, 11,11, @ 11am (Nov) Veteran's Day was celebrated. The packed house
event was sponsored by our Madison County Community Bank and others. It
was attended by local citizens and Veterans who served since WWII to the pre-
Several local notable speakers provided insights as to what a Veteran is, what
the sacrifices were and what we owe to those who swore to defend us.
The occasion was embraced with reverence with but one exception. Mayor Ernes-

theme of the day by centrally positioning herself in a political diatribe regarding
her town politics. This is
offensive to me, my com-

I never cease to
be amazed at how
many times my fa-
ther sees someone
that he has not seen
in years and they
immediately recog-
nized him and he im-
m e d i a t e ly
recognizes them. I
have seen him see
people that he has
literally not seen
since childhood, and
yet at 73, they know
each other. The older
I get, the more I real-
ize that I am becom-
ing like him. I just
hope and pray, that
like him, I never for-
get my friends.
Last week, I had
a visit from an old
high school friend.
She was passing

her way to Albany,

then on to Atlanta to

in high school, had

is today.
Adrienne lives in
Perth, Australia,
where she works in
hospital administra-

there since 1984 and
has picked up an
Aussie accent.
After we said our
goodbyes, I began
thinking of all the
other classmates and
schoolmates that I
have lost track of
over the years, and
many of them still
live in the area. I'm
hoping to see them
again soon, also. My

A Few Words

About Your


In two short weeks, most of you will be putting
a turkey on the table. Over the years, I've gotten
some very interesting questions about turkeys. Peo-
ple want to take short cuts, or they forget to thaw it
ahead of time. That big bird can be intimidating.
You don't prepare one every day and most people
buy the biggest one they can find and then aren't
sure what to do it. The U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture has established food safety guidelines for
preparing your holiday bird; so once again, I'm shar-
ing those recommendations with you. Hopefully, it
will make your Thanksgiving feast an easy meal to
How to Buy
Turkeys come in all sizes to fit everyone's holi-
day meal plan. They can be purchased whole or in
parts, suitable for small families or those who have
a preference for white or dark meat. They come
fresh, frozen, self-basting or pre-stuffed. Most peo-
ple tend to over buy on the size of their turkey, you
only need to figure one pound of turkey per person.
This will give you enough for a meal and leftovers
for the next day
Thawing a turkey in the refrigerator is the
safest method. Plan to purchase your turkey far
enough in advance to thaw in the refrigerator.
Whole turkey
8 to 12 pounds ----------- 1 to 2 days
12 to 16 pounds ----------- 2 to 3 days
16 to 20 pounds --------- 3 to 4 days
20 to 24 pounds ----------- 4 to 5 days
Pieces of large turkey
half, quarter, half breast ------ 1 to 2 days
If it's the day before and you forgot to thaw the
bird, don't panic. Turkey can be safely thawed in
cold water, providing you change the water fre-
quently. Keep the bird in its original wrap and make
sure there are no tears, and place in the sink or a
large pan and cover with water. Change the water
every 30 minutes.
Thawing time in Cold Water
8 to 12 pounds ---------- 4 to 6 hours
12 to 16 pounds ---------- 6 to 9 hours
16 to 20 pounds ---------- 9 to 11 hours
20 to 24 pounds ---------- 11 to 12 hours
Set the oven no lower than 325 F. Pre-heating is
not necessary.
Be sure the turkey is completely thawed. Times
are based on fresh or completely thawed birds at a
refrigerator temperature of 400 F or below.
Most turkeys come with roasting instruction
that can be easily followed. USDA recommend plac-
ing the turkey breast-side up on a flat wire rack in a
shallow roasting pan 2 to 2 12 inches deep. Add 12
cup of water to the bottom of the pan. Loosely tent
the bird with aluminum foil for 1 to 12 hours, then
remove from browning. Or, a tent of foil may be
placed over the turkey after the turkey has reached
the desired golden brown.
If a meat thermometer is not available, it is best
to cook the stuffing in a casserole dish. Mix ingredi-
ents just before oven cooking and if you stuff your
bird, stuff it loosely. Additional time is required for
the turkey and stuffing to reach a safe internal tem-
Cooking times
4 to 6 lbs. Breast ----- 1 2 to 2 1/4 hours
8 to 12 lbs. --------- 2 3/4 to 3 hours
12 to 14 lbs. ------------ 3 to 3 3/4 hours
14 to 18 lbs. ---------- 3 3/4 to 4 1/4 hours
18 to 20 lbs. ---------- 41/4 to 4 1z hours
20 to 24 lbs. ------- 4 12 to 5 hours
8 to 12 lbs. ---------- 3 to 3 12 hours
12 to 14 lbs. ------------- 3 12 to 4 hours
14 to 18 lbs. ------------- 4 to 4 1/4 hours
18 to 20 lbs. ---------- 4 1/4 to 4 3/4 hours
20 to 24 lbs. -------- 4 3/4 to 5 1/4 hours
For safety and doneness, the internal temper-
ature should be checked with a meat thermometer.
The temperature must reach 180OF in the thigh of a
whole turkey (center of the stuffing should reach
165 F) before removing it from the oven. Cook a
turkey breast to 170 F
Juices should be clear. In the absence of a meat
thermometer, pierce an unstuffed turkey with a fork
in several places; juices should be clear with no
trace of pink.
A pre-stuffed turkey should not be thawed, fol-
low the roasting instructions that come with the
Let the bird stand 20 minutes before removing
stuffing and carving.

Goodbye Gunny jB
I wrote the following note in 1999 to be read at the last
reunion my squad would ever have. This get together was re at Is Th e ft
to honor my Gunnery Sergeant's 65th birthday We were Gre a Is eII I i
several men shy that last time we met, many had passed,
some in war and others because they had nothing else to do. I
Today I'm the last. I thought I would share this note with O m agin atio n

you, this being the Marine Corps birthday I miss you Gun-
One thing we weren't aware of at the time, but became
evident as life wore on, was that we learned true leadership
from the finest examples any young man was ever given, a
Gunny Sergeant.
They were crusty men, who had done it all. They had
been forged into men who had been time tested over more
years than most of us had time on earth. The one I remem-
ber most wore gun oil stained covers with scratched and
dinged-up insignias. Though some had Bull Durham tags
dangling out of their right hand pockets or maybe a pipe
and tobacco, mine didn't. But he did have a Zippo lighter
that had been every- where, should one of his boys need a
Most of them were as tough as a boarding house steak.
This is a quality required to survive the life they lived. They
were and always will be a breed apart from all other men.
They took seventeen year old kids like me and hammered
them into Marines. You instinctively knew it had to be hell
on earth to have been born a Gunny's kid. God should have
given all sons born to Gunny's, a return option.
A Gunny didn't have to command respect. He got it be-
cause there was nothing else you could give them. They
were God's designated hitters on earth. We had Gunny's
with fully loaded Combat Patrol Pins in my day Hard core
men who found nothing out of place with the use of the
word "Jap" to refer to the little sons of Nipon, they had lit-
tered the floor of Pacific Islands, as payback for a little De-
cember 7th tea party they gave us in 1941. As late as 1970,
you could still hear a Gunny screaming at you in boot camp
.To listen to him because if you didn't, the damn Gooks or
Krauts would kill us all.
They taught me in those days, "Insensitivity was not a
word in a Marine's lexicon". They remembered lost
Marines and still cursed the cause of their loss. They were
expert at choosing descriptive adjectives and nouns, none of
which their mothers would have endorsed. At the rare time
you saw a Gunny in dress blue uniform you saw rows of
hard earned worn and faded ribbons over his pocket. "Hey
Gunny what's that one? "Oh hell kid, I think it was the time
I fell out of a hooker's bed, I can't remember, there was a
war on. They gave them to us to keep track of the cam-
paigns we had in country"
We got our news from Stars and Stripes, to be honest,
we just took their word for it.
Hell son, you couldn't pronounce most of the names of
the villages we went to. Listen, son, ribbons don't make you
a Marine. "The Purple one on top"? Yea, I remember that
one. We knew who the heroes were and in the final analysis
that's all that matters.
Many nights we sat in our hooch, wrapping ourselves
around cups of coffee and listening to their stories. They
were lighthearted stories about warm beer shared with
running mates in corrugated metal hooch's at rear base
landing zones. The only furniture was a few packing crates
and a couple of Coleman lamps. Standing in line at a Philip-
pine cathouse or spending three hours soaking in a tub in
Bangkok smoking cigars and getting loaded. It was our his-
tory and we dreamed of being just like them because they
were our heroes. When they accepted you as part of their
crew, it was the highest honor you would ever receive in
your life. At least, it was for me.
They were not men given to the prerogatives of their
position. You would find them with their sleeves rolled up,
shoulder-to-shoulder with you in a stores loading party
"Hey Gunny no need for you to be out here tossin crates in
this rain, we can get all this crap aboard. "Son, the term all
hands means all hands. "Yea Gunny but you're no kid any-
more. Marine, when I'm eighty-five parked in the old Ma-
rine's home in Gulfport, I'll still be able to kick your
worthless butt from here to fifty feet past the guard house
with six of your closest buddies. I knew he wasn't kidding,
he probably could.
They trained us, not only us, but hundreds more just
like us. If it weren't for Gunny's, there wouldn't be a Marine
Corps. No one could give birth to a Gunny they were just
born as hot sacking grunts and matured like good whiskey
in wood barrels and steaming jungles over many years.
Nothing a nineteen year-old jaybird could cook up was
original to these old grunts. They had seen young men
come and go for many years and they could read them like
a book. "Son, I know what you're thinking, one word of ad-
vice, "DON'T" it won't be worth it. "Yes sir Gunny".
Gunny's aren't the kind of guys you thank. Apprecia-
tion of what they did and who they were, comes with long
distance retrospect. No young man takes time to recognize
the worth of his leadership. That comes later when you
have experienced poor leadership. It also, comes when you
have the maturity to recognize what leaders should be. You
then find that Gunny's are the standard by which you mea-
sure all others. Gunny's at time butchered the Queen's
English, they had been educated by what they did and saw
from Copenhagen to Singapore. They had given their en-
tire lives to the United States Marine Corps. In the pro-
gression of the nobility of employment, the title Gunny
heads the list.
So when we ultimately get to our final duty station as-
signments and we get to wherever the big Gunny in the sky
assigns us, there will be Marines guarding the streets.
There will be a Gunny in an old oil stained hat, maybe a
cigar clenched in his teeth and a coffee cup that looks like
it contains oil standing in the passage way to assign us our
bunks and tell us where to stow our gear. Then we will all
be young again and the damn coffee will float a rock. Life
fixes it so that by the time a kid grows old enough, smart
enough to recognize who he should have thanked along the
way he no longer can. If I could, I would thank my old Gun-
ny "Gunny if you only knew what you succeeded in pound-
ing in this thick skull, you would be amazed". Gunny; save
me a rack. When I go, I'd like to see you again, and this time
Gunny I'll buy the beer.

See Ya Gunny
George Pouliotte

What is so rare as a November day
When the day's fare is robustly gay
Traces of night race swiftly by
As dawning breaks light o'er our cerulean sky
Falling leaves dancing o'er brightly green lawn
All senses enhancing what a beautiful dawn!
In a nice cozy nook with warmly safe feeling
With paper and book my world has no ceiling -
Coffee steaming in its cup makes
this scene complete
To God I look up, my soul is replete.
A day to enjoy alone no idle chatter to inter-
rupt the perfect silence in which we can fully appre-
ciate life, when one's brain can put to use the
wonderful God-given gift of imagination. I'm sure
that is how tiny seeds sprouted which led to all of
mankind's great inventions; the skill with which he
learned to use his hands to do everything from cup-
ping them to hold water from a stream to drink
when he was thirsty to using two sticks to start fires
when he was hungry And that gift of imagination
grew until such things today are commonplace: the
great works of artists such as DaVinci whose imagi-
nation was not limited to art; Shakespeare and his
wonderful gift of understanding human nature and
ability to put it into great works of literature.
There are also the accomplishments of scien-
tists, inventors, architects, singers, musicians, chefs
and many others. How many do you suppose
watched birds in flight and wondered before the
Wright Brothers figured out how to join them? And
how many dreamed about the moon before the idea
of a lunar flight became a reality?
So when your two-year-old is attempting to build
a sand castle, drawing comic stick figures, beating a
tin bucket with a stick, adding a tiny voice to the
family choir or making motor sounds as he pushes a
toy car across the porch, please don't discourage
your budding genius for he or she may become a star
in his or her chosen field.
And all because of the gift of imagination. If
you yourself believe you would like to try your hand
at something different, do it no matter your age or
other deterrent such as "I'm too busy" Just start
with thirty minutes a day but make it a daily habit.
You have the gift use it!

sigh of relief and thanks Jesus Christ for answered
prayers for the safe return of Hannah.
By David Gilbert
November 8, 2009 started out as most Sundays
do in our household; with us getting up motivating
my two boys to eat breakfast and getting ready for
church. Then, giving their two-year-old sister a
bath, which was longer than expected so she could
play in the water.
I dressed her in a white turtleneck shirt, patent
leather pants, a black sweater with white flowers on
it and her favorite black boots with leopard print
around the top. Grandma dried her hair and I set to
the task of trying to get her two pigtails somewhat
even. Once finished, we loaded up and went to
church. It's a small church, one of many in our com-
munity, but, as always, one with a big heart and
open arms.
As Sunday School ended, my oldest son and I
took my two-year-old to the church nursery, against
her wishes. We convinced her that with a Barney
movie, that it wouldn't be so bad. My son and I pro-
ceeded to the church and joined my other son and
my dad in our usual pew. A couple of uplifting
songs and prayer and the service was rolling like
any other Sunday The preacher called the kids up
front for the children's circle and my dad nudged
me, pointing out the window. The lady from the
nursery was standing there, waving for me to come
outside. I got up and began to exit the church, think-
ing maybe my daughter had gotten sick or some-
thing. This is the point where my world came
crashing down.
The lady from the nursery informed me that my
two-year-old daughter had been snatched from the
nursery by a tall redheaded woman and that she
and a brown-haired short lady had sped away with
her in a blue car, although in shock, the lady from
the nursery was quick witted enough to get the tag
I told her to tell my dad, I knew he would watch
over my boys in my absence and I took off in pur-
suit. I called my youngest brother, who works at the
jail, and told him to call it in. I then called my mid-
dle brother and told him they were headed his way
and the chase was on. It didn't take long and the en-
tire county's law enforcement, firefighters and con-
cerned citizens with scanners were all helping look
for my daughter's kidnappers.
She was abducted from our church nursery
around 11:15 a.m. My mind was reeling while I fran-
tically searched. Who had taken her? Why had they
taken her? What were they going to do to my little
girl? You see, only two weeks earlier, I had 33 of my
troops scouring Orange Park in Jacksonville look-
ing for a seven-year-old girl, that had gone missing
and was eventually found in a dump murdered. I
met up with a police officer and Sheriff's deputy
and relayed information to them as it was coming in
from friends and family.
The deputy had me call my soon-to-be ex-wife to
see if she was involved. After some coaxing, she ad-
mitted that she had my daughter and was taking
her to her home, but would not reveal her location.
She was the brown-haired short lady My sister ar-
rived soon after with critical information on the
other woman's identification and an exact descrip-
tion of the car.
The deputy took me to the jail so I could com-
plete my official statement. It was there that I truly
came to appreciate the concerted efforts and ser-
vices our local elected officials and law enforcement
provide. Because of the rapid, extremely thorough
and exhaustive efforts of Capt. Mark Joost, Sheriff
Ben Stewart, Tina DeMotsis, Tim Sanders, Judge
Wetzel Blair, the many law enforcement officers,
concerned citizens and all those who stopped and
prayed for my daughter's return, this story has a
happy ending.
At 11:15 a.m. on November 8, my daughter was
kidnapped from our church nursery, the culprits
were diligently tracked down and apprehended at
the Jacksonville International Airport, preparing
to catch a flight to BWI and at 6 p.m. on November 8,
an officer released my very scared and confused lit-
tle girl back into my custody I am forever grateful to
each and every person who helped return my
daughter to my family Above all, for those who
searched, made phone calls spreading the world and
those who prayed, THANK YOU and GOD BLESS
I am very proud to say I am from Madison Coun-
ty, a county with small towns, small churches and
big hearts.

Veterans Honored
cont from Page 1A
Representatives from three of the county's Amer-
ican Legion Posts shared personal experiences and en-
couragement, along with veteran advocate Tom
Graham, who opened the ceremony with a moving in-
vocation and Pledge of Allegiance. He then added to
Sthe theme, when he later shared a poem written by a
' seventh grader who effectively captured the depth of
4 appreciation due all veterans.
The declaration that "Freedom isn't Free" echoed
throughout the bank lobby This was especially
brought to life when Jim Jenkins complemented the
featured speakers by playing an audio presentation of
the same title. More than a few people could be heard
saying "Amen" when it concluded.
Following the keynote speaker, visitors were invit-
ed upstairs to enjoy refreshments provided by Madi-
son County Memorial Hospital.

oping this probable cause, a complete search of the
vehicle was conducted and discovered $26,420.00 US
Currency and a Glock 9 mm handgun concealed in a
natural compartment of the vehicle. The currency
was packaged in manner indicative of a drug couri-
er's fashion for transporting currency
A separate K-9 "line-up" of the currency was
conducted and the currency was concealed in an un-
known area to K-9 "Nitro." K-9 "Nitro" also located
and alerted on the currency during the "Line-up."
The currency was seized pending investigation
and forfeiture proceedings.

Christopher' s

Florist and

Christmas Shop

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
In 1981, Christopher
James launched a decora-
tive shop that literally
grew into an attraction.
In 2005, however, that at-
traction fell prey to the af-
termath of a hurricane.
Shortly afterwards -
along with wife, Leah,
and son, Michael James
packed up the belongings
and moved them and a
sack full of ideas to Perry
On Sat., Nov. 14, he
will unveil this trans-
planted dream, as he
holds the grand opening
of Christopher's Florist
and Christmas Shop.
Described as, "A city
under one roof," James
has divided his decora-
tive city into a variety of
theme houses. Ranging
from an antique mall and
country store, to a unique
fishing and hunting vil-
lage, and even decorative
church furnishings, the
15,000 square feet of mer-
chandise holds something
for every taste and bud-
There is also an ex-
ceptional inventory of
items in the nautical
theme. And don't forget
the Candy Land House
which is sure to be a big
hit with kids of all ages.
As much artist as
merchant, James has
been the subject of nu-
merous home-decorating
articles, while many of
his private customers are
celebrities in their own
right. This demand was
built on decades of knowl-
edge combined with un-
paralleled service, and is
now the sure to be the
pride of Perry
The Grand Opening
will begin at 11 a.m. and
run until 6 p.m. Christo-
pher's Florist and Christ-
mas Shop is located at 114

By Judy Phillips for
Kristin Finney who was
out of town this week end
cheering for the Madison
Cowboys. Thanks for the
privilege of doing this
for you.
The church study-
ing...Each week our
church family gathers in
age groups to study
God's Word as the begin-
ning of our time at
church on Sunday morn-
ing. You are invited to
join us.
The church worship-
ping...After a beautiful
prelude by our pianist,
Lynne Sapp, Bro. Jim led
us in singing "We Will
Glorify." Then Bro. Fer-
rell called us to prayer.
During the time of
praise that followed we
sang two choruses, "We
Will Glorify" and "Thou
Art Worthy." A time of
fellowship followed
where we were able to
greet each other as well
as welcome any visitors
we might have with us.
Normally the children
are dismissed to Chil-
dren's church, but be-
cause we had s special
program, they remained
with us to hear our
guests share. Just a note
to the parents. All of the
children "behaved really
well." Continuing with
the theme of worship,
the offertory hymn was
"Brethren, We Have Met
to Worship" after which
Jack McLeod voiced the
offertory prayer. The
sanctuary choir outdid
themselves with a spe-
cial entitled, "Somebody
Prayed for Me." The
song reminded each of
us that when we were
down and out, some-
body did pray for us and
we were able to over-
come the difficulties
that we faced. We appre-
ciate Bro. Jim Carey's
leadership with the
sanctuary choir, chil-
dren's choirs, chamber
orchestra as well as
leading the youth on
Sunday and Wednesday

Teen Challenge is a faith

Three of the young men

Greenville Elementary

Grows In The Garden

While working hard in the garden, the students smile for the camera while working. Pictured left to right are: Dondrell Garrison, Shantel Livingston, Willie Hamil-
ton, Dollie Ballard, Breana Howard, Kenya Livingston, and Daylin Norwood.

In a joint effort with the Garden Club of Madi-
son, Greenville Elementary School has planted a gar-
den, with the interest of teaching the children how to
grow a garden and the responsibility it takes to make
the plants grow. The garden was planted and main-
tained by Rebecca Miller's class.
Every Friday, Miller's classes take a few minutes
and work in the garden under the leadership of Dol-
lie Ballard, president of the Madison Garden Club.
"The Garden Club voted to give $250 to the Youth
Gardeners of Madison County," stated Ballard. "For
the past five or six years we have adopted Greenville
Elementary School."
Through the Youth Gardeners Project, the chil-
dren participate in many different types of projects

such as planting a garden, making crafts from recy-
cled material and much more.
The garden began on October 23 and the students
have planted mustard, collard and turnip greens,
onions, carrots, cabbage, beets and broccoli. "This
garden give kids' hand on experience," Ballard ex-
"We love coming to Greenville," she continued.
"Rebecca is phenomenal. She is an excellent teacher."
Ballard was quick to note and send special
thanks to Wally Davis for donating the seeds, and for
Jack Proctor preparing the ground for the garden.
She also gave much praise to Ann Paquette for vol-
unteering to assist the students with the garden.
While a lot of growing goes on in the classroom,
the children at Greenville Elementary School are
growing in the garden.

Let's turn back time to the Great Depression. In
Cherry Lake, a farm was created. Workers from the
WPA settled the area.
According to text from
Cherry Lake Farm (also known as Cherry Rural Re-
habilitation Project) was a New Deal rural relief
program initiated by the FERA and the Resettle-

ment Administration (RA) and implemented by the
WPA. The project involved moving 500 needy fami-
lies from Tampa, Miami, and Jacksonville onto a
15,000-acre communal tract. The workers formed the
cooperatively-owned Cherry Lake Farms (head-
quartered in the 1839 former plantation home, the
Hinton House) and constructed a school, an audito-

As I See It
By Rodney Barreto,
Chairman, Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation

Fall ramblings: A season
for everything wild

Snowbirds migrat-
ing to Florida might be
the most obvious signs
of the onset of fall for
some full-time residents
of the state, but wildlife
is also keenly reactive to
the accompanying sea-
sonal changes that in-
clude shorter days and
cooler weather. We've
written before about
cold fronts and their ef-
fects on migratory birds,
but almost all wildlife re-
sponds to fall seasonal
changes, though some-
times in dissimilar fash-
ion. So do people.
As for birds,
Neotropical migrants
are setting up shop local-
ly for the winter or fuel-
ing up for a longer trip to
the Caribbean or South
America. Local bird
feeders are being visited
by many species, and in-
creased numbers of
ducks, other migratory
waterfowl and wading
birds dot our large lakes,
rivers, beaches and
freshwater ponds and
tidal marshes.
As for birds of prey,
northern harriers can
be seen actively gliding
over marsh areas, and
Cooper's hawks will be
on the prowl for the new
feeding opportunities
brought on by the vast
migration of smaller
bird species into Flori-
da. Eagles are engaged
in spectacular aerial
courtships, while their
osprey cousins rebuild
nests, high on a wide va-
riety of naked perches
close to their fishing
Not surprisingly,
people react to these fall
migrations too, by
putting out backyard
feeders to attract birds.
But don't be surprised if
your backyard bird feed-
er creates an ambush

point for birds of prey
like Cooper's hawks.
That's Mother Nature --
sort of.
Bird feeders also
can create health prob-
lems for migrating
birds, so don't forget to
clean your bird feeders
regularly with a 10-pre-
cent solution of chlorine
bleach to help prevent
the spread of disease.
We owe it to these tiny
migrating birds, some
having survived a gruel-
ing 2,000-mile journey
punctuated by bad
weather and other life-
threatening issues, not
to let them to become
victims of reckless hu-
man kindness by feeding
them in unsanitary con-
To top off the aero-
batic bird festival, ma-
jestic sandhill cranes
and white pelicans add
to the variety of air
show performers taking
up winter residence.
Remember, there are
good reasons not to feed
either of these species,
neither of which benefit
from the practice. Delib-
erately feeding pelicans
at fish-cleaning stations
is illegal. Feeding sand-
hill cranes anywhere is
As for reptiles, in-
cluding native snakes,
alligators, turtles and a
variety of other cold-
blooded animals, the
season for high activity
is winding down. Just
don't forget that though
the metabolic rates of
cold-blooded animals de-
crease with tempera-
ture, alligators are still
capable of acting as apex
predators, and all cau-
tions in the FWC's "Liv-
ing With Alligators"
brochure, need to be ob-
served with due respect.
On the other hand,

mammals are quite ac-
tive during the fall, and
that includes the Florida
black bear. Although
black bears don't hiber-
nate in Florida, they pre-
pare for it by entering a
period of activity in the
fall, called hyperphagia.
Hyperphagia is a be-
havior in all black bears
that causes them to feed
at twice the normal dai-
ly rate they need to
maintain themselves.
This behavior is likely
the result of a gene that
causes bears to put on
weight in preparation
for a hibernation period
that in Florida, never
comes. Here, the caution
to residents living in
bear country is to secure
all trash and pet food in
places and in ways that
cannot attract a bear.
Appreciating wildlife
from a distance beats ap-
preciating it from inside
your lanai or garage, es-
pecially if it's a bear.
Deer, hogs and
squirrels are feeding ac-
tively, and of course,
that signals the onset of
hunting season.
Hunters were the first
conservationists, and
like all conservationists,
hunters have a vested in-
terest in seeing that all
wildlife, whether it is
hunted or not, continues
to proliferate. Obeying
the letter and the intent
of the law, and insisting
your hunting partners
do the same, is a great
starting place from
which to build an appre-
ciation of all wildlife.
Be you a snowbird,
bird watcher, hunter, all
around nature lover, pet
owner or just somebody
who appreciates living
in the Sunshine State,
fall is a time of thanks-
giving and of wildlife.

Meet Tammy Williams. Her parents are Claude
and Lorena Pickles of Madison. She is the mother of
two children, Amanda and Lucas. She was born and
raised in Madison, but there's much more to Williams
than this.
Williams is a nurse practitioner at Down Home
Medical in Madison, who spends her time helping oth-
ers. Away from her office hours at Down Home Med-
ical, she also works at Lake Park of Madison, Madison
Nursing Center, admits patients at Madison County
Memorial Hospital and does weekly sick calls for in-
mates at the jail. And if that's not enough, she also does
house calls for the elderly who can't get out.
Williams graduated in 1982 with a Bachelors of
Science in Nursing degree from Valdosta State Univer-
sity She obtained her Masters of Nursing, specializing
in Adult Health in 2000. Williams gained her board cer-
tification from the American Academy of Nurse Prac-
Aside from other certifications and degrees,
Williams has certification in forensic nursing and is a
member of the International Association of Nurse
Practitioners. As a forensic nurse, Williams is assigned
to the collection of evidence of assault cases in Madi-
son County
"I love what I do," stated Williams. "I had a third

grade teacher, Ms. Frances Mercer, who kept one of my
essays. In this essay, I wrote that I didn't want to be an
astronaut because I was scared of heights. I said I
wanted to be a nurse so I could help people."
At Williams' graduation of receiving her bache-
lor's degree, Mercer presented her with that essay she
wrote in third grade. "I've got it framed here in my of-
fice," Williams said.
Today, Williams is still helping people.
