It's baaaaaack! The April festival formerly
called Down Home Days has regained that title after
several years of being called Four Freedoms Festi-
val. The Madison City Commissioners approved
this change at their regular meeting on February 9.
Chamber of Commerce Director Ted Ens-
minger approached the board with a plan to keep
the title Down Home Days for the spring event. He
also asked permission to have a rodeo at Lanier
Field in conjunction with Down Home Days. The

Two separate times Mike Brock, a resident of
Madison, has found bullets embedded in his shin-
gled roof. The latest find was Wednesday, February
10, when doing some roof maintenance. The second
bullet was located within 30 feet of the first one
which was found a couple of years ago.
"Every New Years and 4th of July we hear a lot
of gun fire in the City of Madison," Brock said.
Apparently, those firing the weapons are shoot-
ing them in the air, disregarding the law of gravity
The lead that goes up comes back to earth and cre-
ates damage and sometimes death across the U.S.
Brock's home is located near U.S. Hwy 90 and
Hwy 53 North in downtown Madison.
Authorities have been contacted and will be fol-
lowing up with the evidence.

Abbie' s Sense Of Humor
My sister, Abbie, has a sense of humor that can
scare me sometimes.
The other night, I walked into Walmart in Live
Oak with Abbie. We got our buggy and I stationed Ab-
bie at the back so she could push it, which she enjoys
doing. I had leaned over and was looking at cookies or
something else which don't need to eat and she disap-
peared. I'm serious. Poof! She vanished.
My brother, Danny and my father were behind us
getting power buggies (since both of them have trou-
ble getting around in the store) and neither of them
saw Abbie disappear either.
I don't think I have to tell many of you that I was
frightened. I began asking others in the store if they
had seen which way my mentally challenged sister
went. None of them had. I ran out the door to make
sure that she hadn't gone back in the parking lot.
There was no sign of her there.
When I got back in the store, Danny and Daddy
were fanning out looking for her as I frantically con-
tinued to search.
I saw Daddy come out of one aisle, driving his
buggy and Abbie was sitting on it with him, just
laughing. He said that she had popped out of one
aisle and hopped on it with him.
I collected Abbie and we set about doing our
shopping, with her happily pushing the buggy and
grinning from ear to ear about the joke she had
played on her big brother.
The Bible tells us that a merry heart doing good
like a medicine but sometimes a little joke can just
about scare the life out of you.

What is the difference between plaque and tartar?
OK...grab your morning coffee and take two slurps of coffee
because here comes the answer. This is how it works, plaque
is the bad stuffthat causes all evil in Dentistry. It causes tooth
decay, abscesses, gum disease, bad breath, etc. Plaque is that
white slimy film that gets all over your teeth if you go on a
three day trip and forgot your toothbrush (have you ever done
that?). Plaque is composed of billions of germs and bacteria.
The bottom line is high bacteria causes high dental disease. If
you feed the bacteria with a bunch of sugar, you will have very
high dental disease.

Now for the good news. You can remove plaque yourself.
Get a new toothbrush and brush your teeth. Forget the
toothpaste for a while and leam how to brush your teeth. It is
the brush that cleans the teeth and not the paste. After you
finish brushing, check your teeth with your tongue to see if
any plaque is left. You will be amazed how much you can
feel if you don't have paste & bubbles in your mouth. But
you say that the brush doesn't get into those nooks and
crannies very well. Very true and that is where that stuffcalled
floss is supposed to be used Over 40% of the surface of the
teeth is inaccessible to a toothbrush, so get to work with your

Now the rest of the story. Try as you may, not many patients
are all thatperfect atremoving the plaque. Plaque that remains
behind undisturbed by a brush or floss for 100 days will
actually plaster or harden onto the teeth. Hardened plaque is
what we term tartar or calculus. That is not something you can
remove by your self We recommend that you see your
hygienist every 6 months to remove those bits of tartar that
have been missed.

means having income

look at your energy bal-
ance. It is the difference
between the energy you
consume from food and
beverage and the energy
that your body burns in
physical activity This en-
ergy is measured in calo-
ries. Each pound of stored
body fat represents 3,500
calories. In order to lose

3,500 through exercise or
better yet, combine calorie
reductions with physical

mend you lose no more
than two pounds per
Changing on e habit
can have an enormous im-
pact. If you take small
amounts of time during
your day to exercise, say 10
- 15 minutes, you will
burn off calories and
achieve the recommended
amount of physical activi-
ty, at least 30 minutes per
day Add 15 minutes of
brisk walking each day
and you'll burn off an ex-
tra 100 calories. Modify
your diet by eliminating a
tablespoon of butter or a
soft drink and you'll cut
out 100 calories. Cut out a
doughnut and replace it
with an English muffin to
save 350 calories each day
Now for finances, let's
think how to achieve a bal-
ance. Cash flow is the re-
lationship between
income and expenses, in-
cluding savings for future
goals such as retirement.
Ideally, your cash flow
should be appositive num-
ber because this means
you are living below your
means. If you continually
spend more than you earn
you will have a negative
cash flow and go broke.
Three ways to achieve a
positive cash flow is to in-
crease income, decrease
expenses or a combina-
tion of the two.

help you achieve a positive

cash flow is the "10% solu-

Start by trimming
i your family food bill. The
US Department of Agri-
culture calculated a mid-
dle-income family of four
spends an average of
$189.20 per week for food
eaten at home. By plan-
l ning your food purchases,
preparing food around
sale items and eliminat-
ing waste, you can reduce
expenses and then direct
the money toward savings.
Take a good look at
how much you spend on
food eaten away from

down each time and total
the amount, you will be

Saves program: save 50
cents a day in loose
change, substitute coffee
for cappuccino, bring
lunch to work, buy gro-
cery store brands, use few
phone features. As you do
these simple things each
day, put the money aside

leave it in your pocket,
you'll find a way to spend

Rutgers Extension
Specialists give one final
caution about energy bal-
ance and money balance:
be prepared to adjust to cir-
cumstances if the change.
If you suffer an injury and
can't exercise, you'll need
to reduce your food intake
until you are back to exer-
cising. Likewise, if your
income drops, you will
need to make adjustments.
Building health and

The cast and crew of "A Wild and Wacky Womanless Wedding" entertained a packed house for the Madison Garden Club fundraiser held on Feb.

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison Garden Club recently celebrated its milestone, 60th
Anniversary, where charter member Rachel Reichmann was appro-
priately honored. On Feb. 13, the club extended these community
milestones, as President Dolly Ballard and a host of helpers organ-
ized a theatrical triumph, titled, "A Wacky & Womanless Wedding."
Opening with a wacky hat auction, the evening of entertainment
included a delicious dinner. Later characters sporting names such as,
"Paris Milton and Dolly Pairton," teamed up with others like,
"Gertrude the Cleaning Lady and Oprah Winnifreed," providing a
ton of laughs and raising a lot of dollars for Garden Club charities.
Groom Hugo Ego Heffer was scheduled to marry Pamela Han-
derson. Characters took a few moments to arrive at the church
though, as the "lovely ladies" entered the auditorium of the Woman's
Club at Lake Frances, working the crowd as they worked their way to
the stage.
In the end, the groom objected to his own marriage, which was
seconded by the Cleaning Lady who turned out to be his long lost
"Gerty...Gertrude...but I thought you were dead?" Heffer said,

brought the laughter to a roar.
When asked about the experience, some characters thought they
might never live the moment down. For instance, Tommy Greene,
who played Dolly Pairton, noted, "We may live through it, but we'll
never outlive it."
While jilted bride, Handerson, stated, "I'll be scarred for life from
the humiliation of being left at the alter."
Directors Judy Baldwin and Jessica Webb of the RATT pact, as
well as Musical Director Ginger Jarvis, were congratulated for an ex-
ceptionally entertaining performance, as the show closed festively
with everyone singing, "You are my Sunshine."

Schall is from Zelionople, Pa.
Through his music and testimony,
he conveys his love for Jesus
Christ and his concern for his fel-
low man's eternity. His ministry
focuses on encouragement and
God's love for man.
Dan stutters when he speaks,
but the Lord has blessed him with
a singing voice of praise to share
the Lord's words through music. In
his early years of his life he was
filled with anger, feeling that even
if there was a God, He had forsak-
en him. Even though he had diffi-
culty in being able to share what
Christ had meant to him in spoken
word, God had given him a voice to
share it through song. Through his
concerts he is able to reach to help
others realize what God has given
For 30 years, he worked a full-
time job and continued to give 100-
125 concerts a year. In the fall of
2001, he resigned his job and
formed Dan Schall Ministries. In
addition to his concerts, he spends
much of his time visiting the peo-
ple that God leads him to.
You are able to hear some of
his music and his weekly webcast
at his web site at CDs are avail-
able at the concert and through the

Friday, February 19, 2010

Let's turn back time once again to November of 1909. Two shocking and senseless murders took place
in the same month. The following is a recount of the murder of C. Black Ashley. It is printed verbatim
from the November 25, 1909 edition of The Madison Enterprise-Recorder

Shocking Tragedy Startles Town

Col. C. Black Ashley, Prominent Lawyer and Citizen,

Meets Death at Hands of James A. Beatty

Without Warning or Known Provocation

Beatty Shoots and Kills Ashley at Office of

Latter Last Thursday Afternoon

About five o'clock
last Thursday after-
noon, Col. C. Black
Ashley, prominent
lawyer and influential
citizen, was shot down
in front of his office
in this city and in a
few minutes was a
J.A. Beatty, a saw
mill man in business at
or near Lee in this
county, is the person at
whose hand Col. Ash-
ley lost his life.
The streets were
thronged with merry,
happy people who were
just returning from the
performance of the
John Robinson circus,
and no one Col. Ash-

ley least of all had the
slightest intimation of
the impending tragedy.
Col. Ashley was
seated at his desk in the
office which opens di-
rectly on the street,
when a negro man ap-
peared at the door and
told him Mr. Beatty
wanted to speak to him
outside. Without a mo-
ment's hesitation and
absolutely unsuspect-
ing, Col. Ashley walked
across the sidewalk to
the curb where Mr.
Beatty was seated in
his buggy, and putting
one foot on the hug of
the buggy wheel pleas-
antly saluted Beatty
and inquired his busi-

ness. As far as we have am shot." Quickly the
been able to learn the report was current that



which passed was to
this effect: Beatty said,
"I want to get my note
or notes." Ashley
replied, "They are in
the courthouse locked
up. I'll get them for you
tomorrow," and with
these words yet upon
his lips turned to go
back into his office. It
was then that two pistol
shot reports rang out
quick and sharp, and
the throng on the street
knew that something
out of the ordinary had
happened. Beatty threw
himself back in the
buggy, exclaiming, "I

"Ashley is dead and
Beatty fatally wounded,
each having shot the
other." An examination
of Beatty's person by
the sheriff who was im-
mediately upon the
scene, failed to discov-
er the faintest suspi-
cion of a wound and he
was found to be feign-
ing altogether. A search
of Ashley's person
failed to bring to light
anything in the nature
of a deadly weapon.
The first shot fired by
Beatty was while he
held the pistol in his
coat pocket, the bullet
tearing its way through

the coat lining. This
shot is thought to have
gone wild. It is said
that after the first shot
and when Ashley had
turned, Beatty drew his
pistol and taking delib-
erate aim sent speeding
the bullet which found
lodgment in Ashley's
side producing the
wound from which, in a
few minutes, his death
So far as known the
killing was without the
slightest provocation.
Ashley, as attorney for
several creditors, had
sued out attachments
against the property of
Beatty and this is sup-
posed to have incensed

him. It is stated that
Beatty was somewhat
under the influence of
liquor when he did the
shooting. From all re-
ports Beatty drove in
town direct from his
home at Lee and drove
immediately to Ash-
ley's office.
In a little while af-
ter the shooting the
sheriff had Beatty se-
curely locked in the
county jail where he is
now confined awaiting
trial for his awful deed.
Beatty is a married
man, his wife and two
children being on a vis-
it to Georgia at the time
of the tragedy. They ar-
rived her Saturday.

Where To Hunt Spring Turkeys Without A Quota Permit

If you weren't lucky
enough to get drawn for a spring
turkey quota permit, or if you
are looking for even more spring
turkey hunting opportunity
don't fret there are numerous
wildlife management areas
(WMAs) that don't require them.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) offers 42 public hunt-
ing areas statewide where
hunters need only to "walk on"
to hunt spring turkeys.
These hunts are made pos-
sible through the FWC's partner-
ships with the state's Division of
Forestry Florida's water man-
agement districts, the U.S. Forest
Service, Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, the
National Park Service, Depart-
ment of Defense and the U.S.
Fish & Wildlife Service, who con-
tribute their lands to the state's
public-hunting system.
Hunters need only a hunt-
ing license ($17 for residents,
$46.50 for nonresident 10-day li-
cense), management area per-
mit ($26.50) and turkey permit

($5 for residents, $100 for nonres-
idents) to spring turkey hunt on
the following areas. These li-
censes and permits can be pur-
chased in Florida at county tax
collectors' offices and at most re-
tail outlets that sell hunting and
fishing supplies. They also can
be bought with a credit card by
calling 888-486-8356 or going on-
line at w'i' 'ilrll/i-hi-
On the following areas,

FiY *arIetI *A.I an I

By John L. Hoblick, Florida Farm Bureau
As president of the state's largest agricultural or-
ganization, I'm pleased to present a tale that must
never come true. Farm Bureau, the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture, UF/IFAS and Florida commod-
ity organizations are working to make sure this flight
into fantasy will never reflect reality. I believe it
demonstrates how scary life could be without our
agricultural organizations and institutions.
Five years into the second decade of the 21st
Century, farmer Frank Baffington is shaking his
head. His farm, a blessing to his family for the bet-
ter part of 100 years, is driving him to distraction.
Not that he and his family haven't faced chal-
lenges. Hurricanes, freezes, droughts and bad mar-
kets generations of Baffingtons faced them all
down, displaying the adaptability, toughness, char-
acter and determination that characterize Florida
farmers and ranchers.
Now, he thinks he might give up the land his
grandfather began working back when FSU was still
a girls' school. Canker and citrus greening have tak-
en a toll on the groves. He thinks that if UF/IFAS re-
searchers hadn't had their funding cut by the
Legislature back in 2010, the industry could have de-
feated or at least arrested those diseases. As it is
now, the door is closing on Florida's citrus industry
The family beef operation is likewise curtailed.
Activist groups passed a constitutional initiative ef-
fectively outlawing commercial marketing of ani-
mals and animal products.
That's okay, though. He couldn't have afforded
to keep the cattle anyway because of the costly Title
V ("Cow Tax") permits Washington has imposed be-
cause the bureaucrats said his cows were belching
too much methane. The cattle's absence leaves his
pastures teeming with weeds, some of which are
likely considered invasive. Nature, he thinks rueful-
ly, can be a bad mother to land that isn't managed.
He's been entertaining the idea of planting an-
other crop. New grass cultivars that can be used to
produce energy might hold some promise, if scien-
tists finally find a way to produce energy from them

that makes economic sense. And maybe he can find
a niche in local markets for some of the designer
vegetables that are more and more prized by the lo-
But, putting pencil to paper, he doesn't see how
he can make a profit because he can barely fill his
tractor with fuel or his tanks with fertilizer. The
new cap-and-trade law has driven prices of petrole-
um-based products to alarming heights. The sweet
iced tea he is sipping leaves a bitter taste in his
mouth as he remembers how the politicians
promised to save the world by curbing carbon diox-
ide emissions. At one point, it seemed as if Ameri-
can politicians thought the United States could fix
the problem all by itself by discouraging the use of
fossil fuels. They failed to heed the cries of rural
America and now Baffington wonders if he can
work his way out of the problem.
He would like to chuck it all for a few days.
Maybe clear his head by going fishing; that's always
helped him to work through things. But now his fa-
vorite farm pond is under the jurisdiction of the
EPA and the Clean Water Restoration Act and off
limits to rod and reel. Once he welcomed rain-
storms, convinced that he and his property per-
formed a public service by recharging the aquifer.
Now, he hopes for long, dry spells because EPAs Nu-
meric Nutrient Criteria call for nutrient levels that
are actually lower than most rainfall. Still ...
Baffington is a farmer, so the idea of putting in a
new crop appeals to him. He could convert part of
his land to crops and maybe raise the seed money by
developing another tract.
Oh, wait. He has forgotten about Amendment 4,
"Hometown Democracy," the constitutional amend-
ment voters passed in 2010. Can he afford a strong
enough political campaign to convince his neigh-
bors and the voters in the rest of the county that
they should allow him to change his zoning? Will
they care, faced as they are with 150 other amend-
ments on the ballot?
He feels pains return to his chest. He should see
the doctor tomorrow. He isn't sure he wants to go on.
Yet he dare not die. Not now. The Death Tax has re-
turned, full-force, threatening to impoverish his
family should he join the departed. Head down, he
kicks disconsolately at the dirt.
"Dear, stop kicking," says his wife, lying beside
him on the bed. "You have been so restless lately"
Baffington sits up, startled, and gazes at the clock
glowing on the nightstand.
It's 3 a.m. The date is Feb. 14, 2010, he remem-
bers. It's Valentine's Day. A Sunday, and in a few
hours he will prepare breakfast and serve it with a
bouquet to the woman he has loved for more than 30
years. His mood brightens as he remembers their
first meeting at a Farm Bureau Young Farmer con-
ference so long ago. Baffington smiles, his confi-
dence returning. Agriculture is a community and
its people, organizations and institutions are inter-
woven into his family's life, one of their strongest
connections to people of like mind.
