Iicwpoints & Opinions


Friday, March 5, 2010


When I was a student
at Florida State, I remem-
ber sitting in an Interper-
sonal Communication
class when the professor,
Dr. Moore, gave us an il-
lustration about an ant.
He said that the ant
would continue in a
straight line to where it
was going, unless there
was an object in its way
Then the ant would sim-
ply go around or over the
object to its destination.
However, Dr. Moore
asserted, that if a person spit in
the path of the ant or took their
finger and licked it and drew a
line in front of the ant, the ant
would get confused and not know
where to go.
My interest aroused and my


he Ant And

The Line


spirit of curiosity overwhelming
me, I took the first opportunity I
could to investigate and see if Dr.
Moore's assertion was correct.
Sure enough, the ant was dazed
and confused and didn't know
where to go.
When we go through life, try-


ing to do things on our
own, we get confused and
can't find our way to our
destination. Things get in
our way and block our
paths and cause us to be
*y lost and unable to find a
way to cross the line.
I watched the ant
struggle for a while, then I
nudged it across the line.
Sure enough, the ant was
resilient and headed to its
original destination.
Sometimes we need a
nudge so we can cross the
line. We need to listen to the voice
of the Holy Spirit. We need God to
guide us. He has left us instruc-
tions in His Word, the Holy Bible.
Like the ant, after I gave him my
help, we can cross the line with
God's help.

plained the origins of several well-known su-
perstitions, such as the fear of the number 13
and the belief that bad luck will come your
way if you break a mirror or walk under a
ladder. By the way, in case you're keeping
score at home, the fear of Friday the 13th is
called paraskavedekatriaphobia, and even
though Friday the 13th is considered un-
lucky, it is considered lucky to be born on
that day.
Even the Code of Hammurabi does not
have a 13th law, because it was considered
unlucky, and that was back in 1790 B.C.
Enough with the number 13 already; today
we reveal the superstitions of a few people
whose names you're sure to recognize.
For example, Cornelius Vanderbilt
placed the four legs of his bed in dishes of
salt, as he believed it would ward off attacks
from evil spirits. And speaking of marrying
your cousin, Vanderbilt was not supersti-
tious about that because he did it not once
but twice. After his first wife and cousin,
Sophia, died in 1868, he married his first
cousin twice removed the following year. Her
name was Frank Armstrong Crawford. Ap-
parently, he was not superstitious about
marrying a woman who had a man's name,
either.
Napoleon Bonaparte had a fear of cats -
and not just black cats. There is actually a
phobia named after a fear of cats, and it's
called ailurophobia. He was also afraid of
the number 13, so I'm pretty sure he didn't
have 13 cats (unless they were all black,
which would cross out the ailurophobia
problem under the double negative rule).
Other famous people who have been re-
ported to have ailurophobia (that's pro-
nounced "ailurophobia") include Alexander
the Great, Julius Caesar and Genghis Khan.
Not every superstitious person fears bad
things happening to them. Winston
Churchill would sometimes pet black cats
because he thought it would bring him good
luck. It didn't help him get re-elected after
World War II, though, as he lost to Clement
Attlee.
Booker T. Washington carried a rabbit's
foot in his coat. Did it bring him any luck? I
don't know, but it wasn't so lucky for the rabbit!
Michael Jordan always wore the Carolina
blue shorts from his college days under his
Chicago Bulls shorts. I don't think that's what
made him a great player, though.
Some stories about celebrities tend to have
a mixture of truth blended in with some leg-
end; for example, Mary Queen of Scots alleged-
ly had her fortune told by a deck of cards before
her death. As the story goes, she was dealt a
hand full of spades.
Your humble scribe has a horseshoe hung
over the office door, not because I think that
it will bring me good luck, but because I like
the way it looks. Plus, it came from my own
horse. President Harry S Truman also hung a
horseshoe over his
office door in the
White House.
Personally, I won- PERM
der if it's good luck
or bad luck or nei- A l
their to have noth- I
ing more than an
initial as a middle
name, as Harry S
Truman did. And he
didn't always put a
period after the S.
Trust me when I
say that nothing bad
will happen to you if
you stay on the 13th
floor of a hotel. If
you don't pass this
story on to at least
100 of your friends Jon D. C0
within the next five
minutes, nothing CAMI
bad will happen to
you either.

Control Your


Destiny

( Part 7 in Small Steps
to Health and Wealth)
The best way to predict the future is to create it. To
achieve health or wealth, expect a positive outcome and
work hard to achieve it. Your attitude and beliefs about
your control over future life events are important success
factors. Winston Churchill once said, "The pessimist
sees difficulty in every opportunity The optimist sees
the opportunity in every difficulty"
Understanding the idea of locus of control may help
you create a healthy and more financially secure
lifestyle. According to Drs. Barbara O'Neil and Karen
Ensle at Rutgers, locus of control (LOC) is a concept that
refers to the extent people perceive how their personal
behavior influences life events. Internally controlled
people perceive themselves as having control over the
outcome of events, including their health and finances.
In other words, they believe that responsibility for out-
comes is based, at least partially on their personal ac-
tions. They are "masters of their fate." Those who are
externally controlled typically perceive things to "hap-
pen" by luck, fate, or the control of powerful people. Life
is seen as a game of chance where "whatever will be, will
be."
Locus of control is strongly related to success and
achievement of personal goals and is a learned concept.
Generally, an internal LOC is seen as desirable. Research
has shown that males tend to be more internal than fe-
males and that people become more internal as they get
older. LOC is also situation specific. People are general-
ly more internal in familiar situations where they have
some experience and more external in unfamiliar envi-
ronments and apt to defer to the expertise of others.
LOC is reflected in a person's behavior with respect
to health and wealth. For example, externals, as believers
in chance or fate, are more likely to buy lottery tickets,
read horoscopes, and own "lucky charms." They have
also been found to take fewer precautions to protect their
health and are less likely than internals to search for
health related information and to engage in physical ac-
tivities. Internals are more likely to fund 401(k) plans
and read self-improvement books because they believe
that success depends on preparation, sacrifice, and hard
work. They are also more likely to seek out information
about maintaining their health and more likely to take
action to prevent or remedy ill health.
How do people move from an external LOC toward
an internal LOC? Educators and psychologists often sug-
gest the following:
Set small, quick, goals with a high probability of suc-
cess so you'll learn to attribute positive results to your
own efforts. Include a specific outcome, a timeline, and
an action plan. Two examples are "save $50 a month by
placing a dollar a day, plus pocket change, into a can or
jar" and "lose 4 pounds in 5 weeks by eliminating 200
calories per day and exercising to burn off 200 calories"
(400 calories x 7 days = 2,800 calories/week x 5 weeks =
14,000 calories divided by 3,500 = 4).
If you are prone to look externally to others for di-
rection, rewards, and reinforcement, find people to sup-
port you in your health and wealth improvement efforts
that can serve as positive role models or mentors you can
learn from. Ask them for guidance or resources where
needed.
Make a list of positive and negative events that hap-
pen in your life over the course of the next month and de-
scribe how your personal actions (or lack of action)
affected the outcome.

"(Cathy's) illness slowed her down," Mary recalls,
"and, regretfully I drew away from her. I last saw her at

spoke knew her the last two years of her life as a gal in a
wheelchair. The cousin I remember was beautiful in mo-

Mary admits that "like a lot of folks, I don't under-
stand MS; it seems sneaky and cruel. I am a medical

sense of why my cousin had it."
Mary went on to add, "I am doing this Mud Run to hon-

The North Florida Touring T's recently rolled into Madison, again taking ad-
vantage of the hospitality of the Madison Holiday Inn Express, as they enjoyed
several days touring scenic North Central Florida. Dozens of Model T owners
from throughout America took part in the annual gathering, creating rubber-
neckers out of all who pass by the antique regalia.
Most know the Model T as the first popular production car in America,
which was produced between 1908 and 1927.
"I will build a car for the great multitude. It will be large enough for the fam-
ily, but small enough for the individual to run and care for. It will be construct-
ed of the best materials, by the best men to be hired, after the simplest designs
that modern engineering can devise. But it will be so low in price that no man
making a good salary
will be unable to own
one-and enjoy with his
,..- family the blessing of
hours of pleasure in
God's great open
spaces," Henry Ford de-
Sclared

Among those neighbors and sponsors purchasing livestock at the show this
year was Ernie Owens, the owner and operator of Owens Propane.
Similarly, Owens has also established a great professional reputation. Serv-
ing Madison County from their headquarters in Quitman, Georgia, the compa-
ny is proud to announce it will soon be opening an office in downtown Madison.
The retail office will be located at 111 SW Shelby Avenue, across from the Coun-
ty Courthouse in the refurbished Enterprise-Recorder building.
Living by the belief that giving back is part of doing business, Owens made
a very special and generous gesture with the hog he purchased at the livestock
show. Recognizing the tough times many are facing, Owens had the hog
processed and cut, and then gave it to two Madison County families. And al-
though the names aren't being published in respect of their privacy, each was
extremely appreciative of his kindness.
This is not the first time Owens has given back, and it will definitely not be
the last. And if the ac-

We had the honor of
hosting a "Three
Bridges" concert dur-

like to thank them for
allowing Madison First
Baptist to be a part of
this wonderful concert.
Upcoming events at
Madison First Baptist

God is doing great

Youth group attended
the Disciple Now pro-

weekend and coupled it
with a weekend retreat
to connect and commit to
a closer walk with the

boys stayed at the church
parsonage and were led
by Youth Pastor Jerry
Meeks. The girls stayed
at the home of Steve and
Stephanie Carpenter
and were led in their
study by Caitlin
Murphy In addition we
were joined by youth
from Hopewell Baptist.
The retreat was cul-

We praise God that
these two men are will-

Even in these trying
and difficult times as we


look across our commu-

find that God has provid-

people of Haiti for relief.
As many of you know,
that nation has been re-

Please keep these
people and the people of
Chile in your thoughts

remember that Faith is
fantastic.


Where Was God When...


By Don Lindman
The newspaper informed me that a
child died senselessly in an auto acci-
dent, and my thoughts went back near-
ly 20 years-to 1991-when the child
who died was my child. Coming back
from a ski trip, Jill drove head-on into a
semi-trailer truck on a rural highway.
The young man with her was badly
bruised, but his life never was in dan-
ger. Jill was killed instantly.
The automatic reaction of loved
ones is to question where God was.
Why didn't he intervene and stop the
accident? Why did he allow something
like this to happen? After all: "God is
great; God is good; we thank him for
our food;" and we expect him to inter-
vene when bad things may happen to
good people.
In the mess of emotion that engulfs
one at such a time, it's unrealistic to ex-
pect us to think rationally, but the time
needs to come when we do more logical
thinking. For example, if God inter-
venes in situations like this, he turns
people into puppets, controlling what
they do. We start to do something and
God says, "Nope! Not that! I won't let
you! You're going to do this other thing
instead."
God and we chose long ago not to
play the roles of puppets and puppet
ma master.
Back in the
DIRECTV. first Gar-
150 Channels for 134.99 den, God
No Credit Card Required said to the
386-344-2957 first people,


"You've got my permission to do a whole
lot of things, but don't eat the fruit of
that one tree in the middle of the Gar-
den."
"Sorry," those first people said, "but
we have freedom, and we don't need
your permission. We will eat what we
choose to eat. In fact, we have freedom
to choose to disobey you." And they ate.
God could have said, "Oh, that's
okay; I forgive you. I won't hold you re-
sponsible for what you did." Anyone
who's been a parent knows what hap-
pens when you announce consequences
to your kids and then don't stick to what
you said.
This is the first of an infinite num-
ber of dramas that have happened right
up to today-maybe even to this minute
in your life. We want freedom, but we
don't want to have to suffer the conse-
quences of our choices. And since we're
part of a whole specie of intertwined
people, our choices impact the lives of
others, even innocent others. That's
what it means to have freedom.
So, the question for my wife and me,
and for millions of others faced with
similar situations, is this: Do I want
freedom to make my own choices and
my own mistakes, or do I want to be
nothing but a puppet, totally controlled
from the outside? I think we would all
choose freedom.
But with freedom comes responsi-
bility and consequences. That's part of
the deal.
Sometimes those consequences
aren't very nice.

An adult Florida panther roams its home range in search of food, shelter and water. (FWC photos)


Florida's state animal: The Florida


panther in a league of its own


* Loss of habitat forces the
panther to roam near
highways and other roads.
By FWC STAFF

When the Spanish first discovered Flor-
ida, the Florida panther roamed through-
out the southeastern United States. Now,
more than 500 years later, the range of the
panther has been reduced to Southwest
Florida where less than 100 of the unique
cats exist today. The loss of habitat, as a
result of urban growth, endangers the
very existence of the panther.
Recognizing the plight of the cat, el-
ementary students in Florida voted to
make it the state animal in 1982. The
1. ,i:! ,in.I, helped bring public aware-
ness to the perils existing for the panther
as scientists found a way to manage and
protect the endangered animal.
Despite loss of habitat and other
threats, the Florida panther has managed
to survive with the help of the dedicated
biologists with the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission (FWC).
"Research by biologists includes field
studies on the panther to determine den-
ning habits and movement patterns," said
Kipp Frohlich, with the FWC's Imperiled
Species Management Section. "All of these
studies will aid in the long-term survival
and recovery of the Florida panther."
A subspecies of the cougar, also known
as the mountain lion or puma, the Florida
panther has developed its own unique
characteristics, setting it apart from other
subspecies. The Florida panther has lon-
ger legs, smaller feet and a shorter, darker
coat. Its skull's shape gives it a distinctive
Roman-nosed look with its arched nasal
bones. The Florida panther is the only cou-
gar found east of the Mississippi River.
The panther's numbers declined to ap-
proximately 30 cats by the early 1980s but
efforts to conserve its dwindling numbers
began as early as 1958 when the state listed
it as endangered. The low population re-
sulted in severe inbreeding, which created

Panthers can live up to 12 years or more
in the wild.
many health and physical problems. A ge-
netic restoration project in 1995 brought
success by improving the genetic health
and vigor of the panther population.
Further help in p1...". iI the panther
occurred with the development of the
Florida Panther Research and Manage-
ment Trust Fund. This fund receives its
money directly from the purchase of pan-
ther specialty license plates. The popular-
ity of the Florida panther can be seen in
the number of these tags purchased each
year. Currently, it ranks as the second
most popular specialty license plate in
Florida.
Panthers are strictly carnivores, char-
acterized by sharp teeth adapted for eating
meat. Theylive mostly on feral hogs, white-
tailed deer, raccoons and armadillos. Only
occasionally will they feast on rabbits, rats
or alligators. For wild panthers to remain
healthy, males need the equivalent of one
deer or hog per week. Females with kittens
may need more than twice that amount.
Wildlife biologist Maurice Hornocker,
Ph.D., one of the pioneers in the study of
the great cats, stresses the importance of
the panther's health. ". .because it sits
at the top of the food chain, along with
other large carnivores, its health is an in-
dicator of the health of everything in the
chain below it."
Threats remain for the panther as it
struggles to survive. Continued loss of
habitat forces the panther to roam near
highways and other roads where vehicles
become its greatest enemy. The panther
trust fund was developed partially to
help aid in the recovery of injured and or-
phaned panthers.


Florida panther safety tips
* Be alert from dusk to dawn Florida
panthers are most active at night.
* Landscape for safety- Remove
vegetation that provides cover for
panthers or that attracts wildlife
such as deer.
* Keep panther prey away-Deer,
raccoons and wild hogs are prey for
the Florida panther, so keep garbage,
pet foods and vegetable gardens safe
from their scavenging.
* Keep pets safe and secure- Roaming
pets are easy prey for predators,
including panthers.
* Keep livestock secure -Where
practical, chickens, goats, hogs or
other livestock should be placed in
enclosed sheds or barns at night.
* Supervise children- Educate them
about panthers and other wildlife
they might encounter.
* Never approach a panther Most
panthers want to avoid humans.
Give a panther the time and space to
steer clear of you.
* Always hike, backpack and camp with
a companion when in wild areas.



How to help:
* Buy a panther specialty license plate
at http://buyaplate.com/panther.
html or call 1-800-988-4889.
* Heed panther crossing signs and
reduce speed when driving in
panther areas at night.
* Attend county commission,
zoning or city planning meetings
and express concerns over loss of
panther habitat to road construction
and urban expansion.
* Learn how to live with panthers by
visiting MyFWC.com/panther.
* Donate to the Florida
Panther Research and
Management Trust Fund.

Give a panther tag


this holiday season


A unique idea for gift-giving
this holiday season can help
the Florida panther. The Flor-
ida Department of Highway
Safety & Motor Vehicles now
offers gift certificates for the
purchase of any specialty tag
in Florida.
While the efforts of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
have resulted in positive strides
in panthers' once-dwindling
numbers, funds are still need-
ed to keep the research moving
forward. By giving the panther
specialty license plate gift cer-
tificate, residents can help the
Florida panther.
Each panther license plate
gift certificate costs $25.
Eighty-five percent of that $25
goes directly into the trust
fund for research and manage-
ment of Florida panthers. To
purchase the gift certificates,
visit any authorized motor ve-


hicle office and a credit will be
issued in the name of the gift
recipient. When recipients re-
new their license plates, they
can use the gift certificate to
buy the specialty tag.
Since most tags are renewed
on the birth date of the regis-
tered vehicle owner, these gift
certificates make great birth-
day presents also.
Information on projects
funded through the Panther
Research and Management
Trust Fund can be found at
MyFWC.com/panther.
This holiday season, help
save the Florida panther from
extinction by giving a gift that
can be used year-round.
Panther specialty tag gift
certificates may be purchased
at any authorized motor
vehicle office, such as a state
motor vehicle office, local tax
collector's office or a licensed
tag agent.
