AYP 2009
Submitted by Coordinator of School Improvement
Dr Cheryl James
Madison County schools and district are dedi-
cated to ensuring that students succeed. While they
have always had high expectations for students, the
Federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB)
has set new standards for students to meet.
These standards increase every year, until 2014,
when the standards indicate that 100 percent of stu-
F dents will be proficient on the Florida Comprehen-
,sive Assessment Test (FCAT).

NCLB requires states to evaluate the perfor-
mance of all students in all public schools. This past
summer, our state released a report on the progress
our schools are making toward achieving proficien-
cy for 100 percent of our students under NCLB. The
report identifies whether schools have made "Ade-
quate Yearly Progress" (AYP) a simple yes or no
grade based on a complex set of measurements. The
data used for the foundation of AYP incorporates
the assessment results in grades 3-10 from the Flori-
da Comprehensive Achievement Test (FCAT) and al-
ternate assessments given to exceptional education
students (ESE) and students with limited English
proficiency (LEP).
Not making AYP does not mean that a school is
failing. It means that the school has not met a cer-
tain standard for a least one group of students. For
AYP, students at each school are tested in reading,
writing, and mathematics. Performance scores are
then divided into various subgroups having at least
30 members who identify students by race, socioeco-
nomic and learning disability status. Each sub-
group's performance percentage is then rated as
passing or failing according to state standards and
is used when determining the overall performance
of the entire school. In addition, schools must meet
graduation rates and attendance targets. If just one
subgroup misses just one target, an entire school
does not make AYP
To be eligible for AYP, the district and each of its
schools must test at least 95 percent of the targeted
participants. For 2009, the AYP's targeted rates were
65 percent of the students scoring at or above grade
level in reading and 68 percent of the students scor-
ing at or above grade level in math. The criterion for
writing is to increase 1 percent above the previous
year.

Emergency Management Hosts

"Operation Safe at School"


On Thursday, Nov 19, the Madison
County Office of Emergency Manage-
ment hosted the "Madison County Safe
at School" training workshop and table-
top exercise at the Emergency Opera-
tions Center. The exercise was the
culmination of the first phase of plan-
ning activities to develop, implement and
evaluate the school safety plans of the
Madison County School District and re-
sponse agencies and departments, in-
cluding the Office of Emergency
Management, the Madison County
School District, Madison Police Depart-


ment, Madison County Fire Depart-
ment/Emergency Medical Services
(EMS), Madison Fire Department, and
the Madison County Sheriff's Office's.
The exercise was developed, written,
administered and evaluated by the Dis-
asters, Strategies & Ideas Group, LLC.
The training and exercise followed
the revision of the Madison County
School District's school safety plans by a
multi-disciplinary workgroup. The
Madison County School District has re-
cently conducted training for school
staff and have implemented the updated

plans.
The Madison County Operation
Safe at School exercise design team de-
veloped a fictitious "active shooter"
event built upon a plausible scenario in-
volving a hostile assault at the Madison
County Central School by armed aggres-
sors. The scenario was designed to al-

Dear Editor
It is appropriate that November is the month we
commemorate Veterans, Family Caregivers and
Hospice. All of these groups have in common ser-
vice to others, being there for those who count on us
to keep them comfortable, safe and protected. Big
Bend Hospice is proud to have partnered with the
VA Outpatient Clinic and DVA to remember and
honor our veterans during a Service of Remem-
brance held on November 5. Every day we lose 1,000
WWII veterans, leaving a hole in our hearts and in
our society's collective memory Likewise family
caregivers are selfless individuals who give of them-
selves, sometimes putting their own lives on hold, to
care for an ill or dying loved one; they are unsung
heroes. Each day Big Bend Hospice witnesses the
love and comfort that these sons and daughters, hus-
bands and wives, grandparents, grandchildren and
friends give to those who depend on them for care
and support. Nationwide more than 50,000,000 peo-
ple provide care to a chronically ill, disabled, aged
or dying family member or friend during any given
year. At Big Bend Hospice we see first hand the
courage and love that goes into being a caregiver
24/7 and we continually look for ways to provide
support to Hospice family caregivers and ease their
load and renew their spirit. In 2008, almost one and
a half million Americans received services from
hospice. In our area over 1,600 families used Big
Bend Hospice services. Of those seeking our grief
support services, 60% never used our Hospice for
their loved one, but we still walk with them on their
grief journey I am proud of our staff of over 300
caring professionals who work tirelessly to care, ed-
ucate and comfort families as they care for those
they love. It is for all of us, so much more than a job,
it is a privilege and a calling to do this important
work. Please join me during November and salute
all of these groups as they do the work that has to be
done, but which sometimes requires incredible sac-
rifice. We are a better community because we can
come together in support of each other. I encourage
everyone to join me in thanking these dedicated in-
dividuals for the work they do.

By Bryant
Thigpen
On Friday the
13th in July of
2007, I was hired at
Greene Publishing
by Emerald
Greene as a type-
setter. I was fresh
out of high school
and knew it was
time to take on the
real world. While
at Greene Publish-
ing, I learned a lot
that will stick with
j me the rest of my
life.
During my time with the company, I worked
the front desk until moving into the news re-
porter position. As a reporter, I made many
friends who welcomed me and helped make my
job easier. For that, I am very grateful.
My job would not have been enjoyable without
the awesome staff at Greene Publishing. It has
been an honor to work with two of the greatest
guys in the world, Jacob and Michael. I have en-
joyed the daily lunch and chats with Jacob. It was
a lot of fun! To Michael, thanks for teaching me
awesome headlines such as "A Great Success!"
Thanks for all the two minute pep talks and being
a real friend. Heather, Dee and Stephen do an awe-
some job of putting our pieces together and have
been phenomenal to work with. Heather, you are
the "bomb!" It has been fun teaming up with the
sales reps Jeanette, Dorothy and Mary Ellen on
different occasions. The new girl on the block,
Laura, has been a joy to work with, although she
is very quiet. It has been a privilege to work for
Emerald. She is a fantastic boss. For the past two-
and-a-half years, it has been a great experience
working for Greene Publishing.
For those who are familiar with me, know
that I have been involved in gospel music my
whole life. I have traveled with my family groups,
and even formed a group called LifeSong. I've
traveled the past 10 years on a part-time basis, go-
ing to school or working Monday-Friday and
singing Saturday-Sunday. That's been my life.
At the age of seven, I was sitting in the audi-
torium at the Grand Theatre in Fitzgerald, Ga.,
waiting for Gold City, the Kingsmen and the Flori-
da Melody Boys to perform. When Gold City took
the stage, it changed my life forever. I knew at that
moment that I wanted to be on stage and travel
and sing gospel music professionally.
Recently, opportunity knocked at the door.
The baritone vocalist and group manager, Scott
Spangler, asked me if I would be interested in be-
ing the pianist for Naomi and the Segos of
Nashville, Tenn. The group performs over 200
days a year across the United States and into
Canada, which makes it impossible to maintain
my news writer position. And truly, accepting the
job with Naomi and the Segos was a dream come
true.
Again, I would like to thank the staff at
Greene Publishing for being more than co-work-
ers, but being real friends. I am extremely grate-
ful for the friends I have made within the
community and I cherish their continued friend-
ship.

Thoughts On


Thanksgiving
An optimist is a person who starts a new
diet on Thanksgiving Day.
Irv Kupcinet
Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity:
it must be produced and discharged and
used up in order to exist at all.
William Faulkner

Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the
hearts of honest men; but be careful that
you do not take the day, and leave out the
gratitude.
E.P Powell
Thanksgiving is so called because we are
all so thankful that it only comes once a
year.
J. O'Rourke
Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours
to prepare. They are consumed in twelve
minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes.
This is not coincidence.
Erma Bombeck
Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of
action.
WJ. Cameron
Thanksgiving was never meant to be shut
up in a single day.
Robert Caspar Lintner
If pity is akin to love, gratitude is akin to
the other thing.
George Bernard Shaw
The pilgrims made seven times more graves
than huts nevertheless, set aside a day of
thanksgiving.
H. W Westermayer
Best of all is it to preserve everything in a
pure, still heart, and let there be for every
pulse a thanksgiving, and for every breath
a song.

It's National


Family Week

Thanksgiving week is designated as Nation-
al Family Week. For years, the Alliance for
Children and Families has coordinated and
promoted this annual observance throughout
the country. According to the ACF, National
Family Week embodies the philosophy that
children live better lives when their families
are strong, and families are strong when they
live in communities that connect them to eco-
nomic opportunities, social networks, and ser-
vices.
With the busy schedules families face, you
have to be creative in planning time together.
Learn to be flexible and use every moment to
connect with family members in meaningful
ways. Here are a few suggestions to help build
family ties:
Play Together
Start a family fun night Pick a regular
night each week. Begin the evening with din-
ner. Plan a different activity each week to keep
interest in the event alive.
Make physical activity a lifestyle behav-
ior. Take a walk, hike or bike ride together.
Play a game together.- Board games,
crossword puzzles, even video games.
Share Family Meals Together
Have children help plan menus, shop for
groceries and prepare food. They will be more
willing to participate if they've contributed to
the meal.
Develop a family tradition It might be
Friday night is "pizza night"; something easy
to fix and allows time at the dinner table to
talks about the week and plan activities.
Participate in Community Activities
Make participation in school, church and
youth activities a family affair. It is important
for everyone to attend the event to support each
other. For example, one child might be in a
school play,
Volunteer together. Help with community
church drives or fund raisers. Participate in 4-
H clubs and activities, it's a great way for par-
ents to teach and support youth.
Adopt a grandparent As a family, offer
help to an elderly person. Helping with chores
or simply being friends teaches children the
value of their contributions.
Work Together
Teamwork will get the chores done. Break
jobs into smaller assignments and share the
workload. A child can dust while the parent
vacuums. You can make a contest out of get-
ting the jobs done and then you have time for
fun.
Hold family meetings to decide on projects
to work on together. You might plan and carry
out a vegetable garden in the spring or build a
deck in the back yard.
During National Family Week, start build-
ing family connections and strengthen the ones
you already have in place.

By Paul Niemann
Between 1840 and 1960,
there were seven United
States presidents who were
elected in years that ended
in zero. Every 20 years, one
of the presidents died in of-
fice; four were assassinated
while the other three died of
natural causes.
This strange rash of
early deaths began with
William Henry Harrison
(President # 9) and ended
when Ronald Reagan sur-
vived his two terms as Pres-
ident (# 40).
President Harrison was
elected in 1840. His slogan
was "Tippecanoe and Tyler,
Too," referring to his victory
at the Battle of Tippecanoe
in 1811 and his veep, John
Tyler. Harrison died of
pneumonia exactly one
month after he stood out in
the cold to give a two-hour
inauguration speech. The
man who wrote that speech
was Daniel Webster.
In 1860, President Lin-
coln (# 16) became our first
Republican president. John
Wilkes Booth ended Lin-
coln's second term just five
days after General Robert E.
Lee surrendered to General
Ulysses S. Grant in 1865,
which ended the Civil War.
In 1880, twenty years af-
ter Lincoln was elected,
James A. Garfield (# 20) was
elected president. Less than
three months later, he was
assassinated. In a weird
twist of fate, the inventor of
the world's first metal detec-
tor tried to save the presi-
dent's life by searching for
the bullet in his body
Every time the metal
detector made a buzzing
noise, the inventor and the
doctors assumed that they
had found the location of
the bullet, so they continued
to probe his wounds looking
for it. As a result, they did
more damage than if the
doctors would have just let
the bullet remain in his
body
And who was the inven-
tor of this metal detector?
None other than
Alexander Graham Bell!
In 1900, twenty years af-
ter Garfield was elected,
William McKinley (# 25)
won re-election to his second
term by defeating his same
opponent from four years
earlier, William Jennings
Bryan. Less than a year lat-
er, McKinley was shot.
In 1920, twenty years af-
ter McKinley was elected,
Warren G. Harding (# 29)
was elected. President Hard-
ing broke tradition and died
from a stroke, but the so-
called "curse" was not over.
In 1940, twenty years af-
ter Harding was elected,
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
was elected to his third term
as president. He was elected
to a fourth term in 1944. Like
President Harding, Roo-
sevelt managed to avoid as-
sassination, but he died in


office in 1945 of a cerebral
hemorrhage. He, too, is part
of the "curse."
In 1960, twenty years af-
ter Roosevelt was elected,
John E Kennedy was elected
(# 35). In 1963, Kennedy was
assassinated by Lee Harvey
Oswald.
In 1980, twenty years af-
ter Kennedy was elected,
Ronald Reagan (# 40) be-
came our nation's oldest
president at the time of his
election. He managed to sur-
vive an assassination at-
tempt by John Hinckley,
thus ending the so-called
curse.
So there you have it ...
every twenty years from
1840 to 1980, a United States
president was either assassi-
nated and killed, died in of-
fice or survived an
assassination attempt.
This series of events is
known as "Tecumseh's
Curse." And just who was
this Tecumseh fellow?
He was the Indian
leader whose troops were
defeated by William Henry
Harrison in the Battle of
Tippecanoe in 1811. He died
in the War of 1812 in the Bat-
tle of the Thames in Cana-
da.
And what happened to
the man who wrote Harri-
son's two-hour inauguration
speech, Daniel Webster?
He tried and failed -
three different times to win
the presidency himself. Iron-
ically, he would have become
president on two separate
occasions if he had just ac-
cepted the vice president's
position that he had been of-
fered; first by Harrison in
1840 and then by our 12th
president, Zachary Taylor,
in 1848. Unfortunately for
Webster's career, he turned
down both future presi-
dents. Taylor, by the way,
died in office of natural
causes. Of course.


Stressed But

Blessed
I haven't been at work all week. Any work that
you see with my name (and some without my name)
was done before this week (with the exception of
this column). I have not missed work by choice but
due to necessity My father is undergoing medical
treatment and I need to be with him.
If I could, I would be at work. If it were my will,
no one in my family would ever get sick, but life hap-
pens to all of us. Believe me, I have dealt with a lot of
life these past three years. I almost feel that I know
Tallahassee, Lake City and Gainesville more than I
know Lee. I have spent a lot of time in these three
cities going to doctor's offices and hospitals.
I look at everything that has happened and, I
will admit, I do feel sorry for myself at times. "Why
is this always happening to me and my family?" I
ask God.
Another thing that I ask myself is why do these
things happen this time of year? My mother had a
massive stroke on her birthday on Nov. 26, 1999. Two
months later, she died.
I could continue feeling sorry for myself and
questioning God but I can't. I have to ask myself,
"Why has He given me so many blessings? Why did
His Son, Jesus Christ, die on the cross in my place?"
I know that things will get better. I have so many
wonderful Christian friends praying for me and I
know that God will work things out.


low great is your
goodness, which you
have stored up for
those who fear you,
which you bestow in the
sight of men on those,
who take refuge in you.

trol activities for such incidents.
The Madison County 2009 "Operation Safe at
School" exercise was successful for all participants.
The entire planning process and scenario-driven ex-
ercise provided contemporary training, resulted in
critical analysis of existing agency policy, and pro-
vided valuable planning insights for school district,
emergency management and law enforcement re-
sponders and support staff for incident response and
incident management to school-based incidents.
The exercise demonstrated that Madison County
possesses good baseline capabilities that will be en-
hanced with the March 2010 Functional Exercise at
the Madison Central School to enhance system-wide
capabilities. Also, the exercise underscored the im-
portance of leveraging additional resource capacity,
using the EOC, as violent; no-notice incidents will
quickly consume all available emergency services re-
sources leaving other key functions to be addressed
cooperatively by other government departments, ex-
ternal agencies, and in some cases, private entities.
The consulting team emphasized the citizens of
Madison County are served by dedicated, capable,
and committed professionals and their service to the
community is invaluable.


Points To Ponder


At a movie theater
which arm rest is
yours?
What is Satan's last
name?

Why do doctors leave
the room when you
change? They're going
to see you naked
anyway.

If your driving a
federal owned car, and
you run a stop sign, is
it considered a felony?

If you dug a hole
through the center of
the earth,and jumped
in, would you stay at
the center because of
gravity?

How far east can you
go before you're
heading west?
How does a Real Estate
company sell its office
without causing
confusion?

Do dentists go to other
dentists or do they just
do it themselves?

Why do people think
that swaying their arm
back and forth would
change the direction of
a bowling ball?

Why is it that
everyone driving
faster than you is
considered an idiot


and everyone driving
slower than you is a
moron?


County High School, nor Madison County Central
School made AYP However, Greenville Elementary,
Lee Elementary, and Pinetta Elementary made AYP
All three of these schools met 100 percent of the cri-
teria for making AYP Greenville Elementary and
Pinetta Elementary also earned a school grade of A;
Lee Elementary earned a school grade of B.
Madison County School District earned a grade
of C, and met 72 percent of the AYP criteria. Madi-
son County High School earned a school grade of F
and also met 72 percent of the AYP criteria. Their
white, black, economically disadvantaged, and stu-
dents with disabilities did not meet the benchmarks
set for reading. Their black, economically disadvan-
taged and students with disabilities did not meet the
benchmarks set for math. They also did not meet
the benchmark set for Writing.
Madison County Central School earned a school
grade of C, and met 79 percent of the AYP criteria.
Their black, economically disadvantaged, and stu-
dents with disabilities did not meet the benchmarks
set for reading; while white, black, economically dis-
advantaged, and students with disabilities did not
meet the benchmarks for AYP in math. They did in-
crease their writing 7 percent over the 2008 score.
Madison County Excel Alternative School did
not have 30 students in their testing group to be eli-
gible to be graded under the Differentiated Account-
ability plan. The school's total population did not
meet the reading, math, writing, or graduation cri-
teria. Nor, did they test the required percentage of
students.
Please note that many good schools across the
state, as well as the nation, have not made AYP For
example, in our state, a significant percentage of
schools have not met the goal. That does not mean
they are not successful. AYP is an all-or nothing
proposition, but student achievement is not. Acade-
mic success is measured in many ways, including
classroom test, teacher observations, report cards,
homework, and standardized tests. But AYP focuses
only on state tests. Low performance in only one
subgroup can cause a school not to make AYP
A concentrated effort is being made to address
the subgroups at the schools, which did not make
AYP Highly Qualified Teachers are being placed

sand dollars in a year.
Last year the Madison County United Way
Campaign raised almost $120,000, which was fully
distributed inside the county. Each that recieved
funds would tell you the money was desperately
needed and despite the tougher economic times is
needed all the more this year. So, the question is
whether or not the great givers of Madison Coun-
ty are willing to sacrifice just one item on the dol-
lar menu, one candy bar, or one toy at the dollar
store to support those in need. These deserving
people aren't begging for a handout, instead just
deserving of a hand.

Ecology Day Features Project Wet

NFCC hosts 5th graders from throughout the district


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Floridan Aquifer is the largest in North
America, running under the entire State of Florida,
as well as portions of Georgia, South Carolina, Al-
abama, Mississippi and Louisiana. In Florida it sup-
plies the cities of Daytona, Flagler Beach,
Gainesville, Tampa, Jacksonville, Ocala, St. Peters-
burg and Tallahassee, and, several municipalities in
South Florida, and numerous rural communities.
Consequently, industry, agriculture, business and
residents, in addition to environmentalists, share a
common interest in its condition and treatment.
Madison County is located in the heart of the re-
gion, where the confluence of the Suwannee and
Withlacoochee Rivers make the Blue Springs area a
particular point of interest. Preserving the environ-
mental health of this region is therefore a priority
of the Florida Department of Environmental Pro-
tection and the focus of Project Wet. This was also
the theme of the ecology day sponsored by Nestle
Waters on Friday, Nov. 20 and hosted by North Flori-
da Community College.
According to the FDEP website, "Project WET
(Water Education for Teachers) activities assist in
teaching Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test


Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Michael Curtis, November 20, 2009

guest, Barry Barnhart, supervises visiting Lee Ele-

(FCAT) and Sunshine State Standards. Florida Pro-
ject WET engages students in inquiry-based activi-
ties that relate to the water resources students
know: the bath, the ocean, and the creek behind
their house. It then educates while it entertains, car-
rying a message of water resource education and re-
inforcing classroom concepts being taught."
The collaboration, which is also supported by
public funding, allows critical environmental topics
- in this case water topics to be taught in a field set-
ting, creating a meaningful and memorable interac-
tive experience. For instance, one of the
instructional stations presented a working model of
the aquifer, while another explained the key fea-
tures of plastic recycling, both of which have great
local application in Madison County due to nearby
Nestle.
NFCC, under the supervision of Bonnie Little-
ton, continues to support elementary and secondary
science education and environmental studies in the
district, making the Project Wet partnership with
Nestle and FDEP a great fit to further that commit-
ment. In the end, students and teachers walked
away better informed and better stewards.

Health Department Hosts Tobacco Graveyard At Courthouse


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
86 people die daily in Florida
from tobacco related causes and
eight of those are non-smokers.
When used as directed, tobacco
kills at least one-third of its users.
On Thursday, Nov. 19, these and
other startling statistics were fea-
tured at the display set up on the
courthouse lawn in Madison. To-
bacco Specialist Doug Freer and
Ashley Rudd, his associate at the
Madison County Health Depart-
ment, hosted a tobacco table as part
of the Great American Smokeout.
Tobacco Cessation Consultant
with Big Bend AHEC, Preston
Mathews, who conducts Quit Smok-
ing Now classes in collaboration
with the health department, joined
his colleagues to support the annu-
al event.
Committed to the idea that
quitting just one day is a beginning,
the Great American Smokeout is
celebrating its 33rd year. Locally,
Freer and Mathews have been mak-
ing great strides throughout the
county, steadily reminding youth
and users about the consequences

Doug Freer and Ashley Rudd represented the MCHD during the Great Amer-
ican Smokeout. Setting up a booth with a "courthouse graveyard," each remind-
ed those passing by that 86 people die daily in Florida from tobacco related
causes, including eight non-smokers. Several immediately signed up for the Quit
Smoking Now class sponsored by Preston Mathews (not pictured) in Madison
County


of all forms of tobacco. The Students Work-
ing Against Tobacco (SWAT) program at
the schools, which is supervised by Rudd,
is growing its numbers as well.
Tombstones were arranged on the
courthouse lawn at the corner of Range
and US 90, representing those in Florida
dying daily from tobacco. Throughout the
day, visitors stopped by to receive materi-
als, with several enrolling immediately in
the Quit Smoking Now class. Beyond the
priceless value of the life this may save, ex-
perts estimate that as much as $10,000 per
year is saved financially. In fact, the bottom
line losses from health and productivity
causes in Florida are already greater than
the annual deficit the state is running from
recent economic declines.
Of course, since addiction can some-
times be an emotional audience, both spe-
cialists and their colleagues are sensitive
to the feelings of all who participate in
their programs. With success rates many
times higher than trying to quit cold
turkey, the Wednesday evening cessation
class held at the MCHD After-hours Clinic
is a great start. Mathews can be reached at
(850) 973-1710 or phone Freer at the health
department at (850) 973-5000, ext. 119.

civics. However, besides his lovely bride, who he em-
phasized was love at first sight, the real love of his
life was his students. Although Asbell left Madison
High in 1952, he remained in education until his re-
tirement in 1981, and a big chunk of his heart re-
mained in Madison.
Speaking to guests, students and faculty, Asbell
charmed and impressed the group with a host of his
achievements. Interestingly, the milestones he
shared all took place after his retirement, three of
which were particularly notable.
The first of these achievements were his pub-
lished recipes, titled, "Bubba's 92 Kitchen Experi-
ments." The book is composed of four parts: the
photos, the writings, the photos and the artwork.
Published in December 1992, 13 recipes were later
featured in Southern Living. Then in 1993, Asbell
broke the glass ceiling for men by winning the cake
category at the Dothan, Alabama, National Peanut
Festival. The Dothan Eagle gave him a big write-up
the next day. He provided a framed article from one
of the publications for the high school to display.
The second of these noteworthy accomplish-
ments was Asbell's foray into producing day lilies.
After cross pollinating selected strains, harvesting
the seed, planting it, and then replanting the
seedling, he ultimately produced and registered 90
hybrids. Bearing such names as, "Bubba's Family
Remembered," "Bubba's American Patriot," and
"Bubba's Browning Legend," which he produced
in honor of the Browning Family, including Deacon
Browning who hired him for the school these lilies
received great praise. In a special gesture for her as-
sistance, Asbell presented a beautiful framed pic-
ture of a spectacular one to Mrs. Holmes. Here too,
he generously donated a framed piece showcasing
photographs of several examples.
His last presentation was regarding one of his
proudest achievements and creative expressions.
From early 2007 until late 2009, Asbell wrote 30 po-
ems, ranging from soft titles like, "Abiding Love,"

and "Blessed Memories," to harder topics like,
"Homeless," and "Foreclosure." He touched topics
about loss and love, along with those about his
youth. Sharing a few with those in attendance, he
also put several together in a framed commemora-
tive that displayed pictures of him and his wife from
1952, along with a few poems unique to their rela-
tionship.

Employees of the Nestle Waters North America
Madison County Bottling Facility raised more than
$17,880 in their weeklong United Way Campaign.
With Nestle Waters matching this amount, a grand
total of $35,760 was raised for LIVE UNITED, a cam-
paign that supports local organizations throughout
Madison County
One of the keys to the company's fundraising
success was the support and involvement from
Nestle Waters' employees. Employee participation
increased 15 percent over last year, with four partic-
ipants donating at the leadership giving level, con-
tributions beginning at $1000 per year.
Through its employee campaign, Nestle Waters
also raised awareness of the impact United Way has
on the community by hosting five local agencies to
share their information about what they do in the
community. The five participating agencies were

pice and Kids Inc. These organizations shared how
critical United Way funds are to the local area.
Deanna Samaha, Human Resources Manager
for Nestle Waters says, "We are very proud of all the
employees in our facility Giving is a personal
choice, yet one that can make a huge difference to
those in need. People should know that their con-
tributions make an impact everyday in our commu-
nity"
Samaha also credited the company campaign
coordinators, Warehouse Resource Jon Steiner and
Production Resource Mike Morgan for their work in
motivating employees to pledge during difficult eco-
nomic times.
Even though the Nestle Waters weeklong cam-
paign is over, the company will be taking donations
throughout the month of November. To lean more

Let's Go To The "Hop"!!!!

LES Sock Hop is great musical "FUIN"drakser


Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Michael Curtis, November 13, 20u9
The LES Sock Hop was a rocking success
thanks to the "Poodle Princesses," pictured left to
right: Stacey McDonald, Katie Knight and April Her-
ring.

Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Lee Elementary
School community con-
tinues to be exceptionally
supportive of school
fundraisers, although few
put the "FUN" is fundrais-
er like the LES Sock Hop
held Friday Nov. 13, in the
school cafeteria. PTO
leadership paraded their
poodle skirts and bobby
socks, as students and vis-
itors danced, performed
the limbo and Macarena,
took turns at the hula
hoop and played a round
of musical chairs that
brought everybody out of
their seat.
PTO Co-Chairs Stacey
McDonald and April Her-
ring, along with President
Katie Knight, looked like
they stepped out of the
50's, setting the tone for a
great time by all accounts.
Longtime LES volunteer
Christy Annett pitched in
as well, as did Stephanie
Lundy, who provided a
helping hand as host of
several events during the
party
Admission was only
$3, which included a cou-
ple slices of pizza, a drink
and a tasty homemade
dessert. In addition, there
were party favors and
prizes awarded for game
winners.
Organizers thanked
parents and students for
their support, also ex-
pressing appreciation to
all the volunteers and
staff that made the
evening rock...literally
"We are very pleased
with the attendance and
want to thank everybody
who helped make the Sock
Hop a success," Knight
noted.
As the costs of pro-
viding a well-rounded ed-
ucation rise constantly
schools often depend on
fundraisers like the Sock
Hop to fill the gap and pro-
vide additional activities.
Those wishing to make a
contribution of time or re-
sources can call LES at
(850) 973-5030.

SUCCEED Academy Hosts

Mini Fall Festival
Kindergarten classes treated to afternoon
of playground activities.


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Students from the Central
School's SUCCEED Academy treated
the kindergarten classes to an after-
noon of activities on Friday, Nov. 13.
Play stations were set up around the
elementary school quad, where each
class rotated among activities includ-
ing bowling, ring toss, a bounce rac-
ing game and playing drums with a
member of the Bronco Band Drum
Corps.
Throughout the year, students
from the SUCCEED Academy have
been tutoring and reading with the
kindergarteners, featuring the "Just


Read" program. The mini fall festival
was a special addition to that effort,
and was sponsored by Kim Graham's
Class.
Graham, along with the other
SUCCEED Academy instructors -
Jeff Veilleux, Jim Waller and Debbie
Tuckey (Tezz Neimeyer currently sub-
stituting) were praised for their sup-
port from both school and district
leadership. The biggest thanks, how-
ever, came directly from the young-
sters, who were all smiles throughout
the afternoon.
Michael Curtis can be reached by
e-mail at michael@greene

Madison Academy

Raised Appetites As

They Raised Funds
They sold chicken and rice dinners on courthouse lawn


Madison Academy Athletics host-
ed a chicken and rice fundraiser on the
lawn of the Madison County Court-
house on Friday, Nov. 13, but it definite-
ly wasn't an unlucky Friday the 13th
for them. On the contrary, the serving
spoon was heating up, as they served
dozens and dozens of plates through-
out the day.
Several student and parent helpers
joined athletic Director and Coach Ben


Pickels, each of who provided friendly
curbside service to all fortunate
enough to grab a taste of that winning
recipe. Of course, they now gratefully
hope for similar community support as
they look for the winning recipe on the
field and in the gym.
Madison Academy is located on US
90, adjacent to Tri-County Electric, just
west of Madison. The phone number is
(850) 973-2529.

"Give thanks to the
Lord, for He is good; His
love endures forever"
Psalm 107:1
Sunday morning
was beautiful in the
sight of Christ, despite
the rain God love shone
brightly. The Worship

singing "Come Now is
the Time", "What a
Mighty God We Serve",
"We Gather Together."
This was followed by
Debbie Bass singing the
message through song.
Bill Rodgers said the of-
fertory prayer followed
by the Worship Choir
singing "IAm Free." Pas-
tor Ferrell's message
was part 3 of his ser-
mons on Lordship. His
message came from
Matthew 7:21-29, Luke
6:46-49, and Matthew
24:14-15. He shared the
two surprises of Lord-
ship, the Three classes of
people, and also the
wrong types of "Obedi-
ence."

was our special speaker and a good
time was enjoyed by one and all.
Our morning worship service
opened with special music by our

reminder in song that we all have rea-
sons to give thanks to the Lord except
for the turkey
Our special music was provided
by our newly formed children's choir
led by Mike Cuppett. Pastor Redditt
then completed his two part series of
sermons on "Giving thanks to the
Lord" by reminding us of nine rea-
sons as we celebrate Thanksgiving.


Already the Christmas Holiday
Season is upon us at Faith. Soon we
will be decorating the church in rib-
bons and lights and already our

gladness.

Luncheon Reaps Success


8 point trophy buck killed on opening day of gun
season! ....killed by Jacob McLeod Wiser (10 years
old)...his first deer...one shot with his new rifle. The

Farm City Week was
recognized with a din-
ner and brief program
on Tuesday, November
24, sponsored by Madi-
son County Farm Bu-
reau. Jeffery Hamrick
welcomed guests before
Dan Buchanan said a
prayer over the meal.
Guests in atten-
dance enjoyed a hot
lunch consisting of
grilled pork loin, baked
beans, cole slaw, bread,
tea and banana pudding
for dessert.
This year's special
guest for the luncheon
was all local law enforce-
ment.
After lunch, Dan
Buchanan took a few
minutes and shared with
the audience some histo-


ry of Farm City Week.
"Farm City Week is
designed to foster the
difference between city
and rural folks,"
Buchanan stated. "It was
started by the Kiwanis
Club, and it's always the
week leading up to
Thanksgiving."
Buchanan also empha-
sized the importance of
agriculture in our coun-
try
"Agriculture is what
has made this country,"
was a statement made by
Buchanan, and was later
backed by keynote
speaker Representative
Leonard Bembry Bem-
bry provided amazing
statistics, which proves
that agriculture has
played a major role in
making Florida and this
country what it is today


12-point buck approx. 200 Ibs. shot by Kenny
Hutto on Saturday morning at an undisclosed loca-
tion.


Two serious tree
stand accidents over the
weekend have Florida
Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission
(FWC) hunter safety
staff reminding
hunters to wear a safety
harness when using a
tree stand.
On Saturday, Pace
resident Anthony Eddie
Vanna, 33, died after
falling from his tree
stand in the Blackwater
River State Forest near
Munson. Vanna was
muzzleloader hunting
for deer when he fell
23.5 feet. He apparently
was attempting to come
down the tree at sun-
down.
The previous day,
Susan Rudd of Quincy
fell backwards off a 12-
foot tall ladder stand
while hog hunting on
private property in
Gadsden County. Al-
though injured, she
managed to walk out
and call for help.
Rudd was Life-


Flighted to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital and
admitted. She has since
been discharged from
the hospital.
FWC law enforce-
ment investigators say
neither hunter wore a
safety harness.
Bill Cline, the
FWC's section leader
for hunter safety and
public shooting ranges,
said anyone who hunts
from a tree stand should
wear a safety harness.
"If you're going to
leave the ground, you
need to wear a full body
harness. If a hunter is-
n't willing to do that,
they need to stay on the
ground. It's that sim-
ple," Cline said.
Hunters who use
older tree stand belts or
upper-chest straps
should discard them,
Cline said. He encour-
ages hunters to visit
MyFWC.com/HunterSa
fety and take the free
online tree stand safety
course.
