Hospital
cont from Page 1
before 4:30 p.m. By 5 p.m., there was hardly room at
all and the meeting was moved to the courtroom in
the courthouse. Still more people filed into the
courtroom. The room was filled mostly with hospital
employees. Others who were not employees said that
they knew about the meeting because they had been
called by the hospital or had messages left on their
answering machines and voice mail about the meet-
ing.
The room was packed with people. Abercrombie
and others spoke of the economic impact the hospi-
tal has on the community Some people spoke of care
they had received at the hospital.
Commissioner Alfred Martin and Commission
Chair Renetta Parrish said that they had been told
in a phone call with Tim Sanders that the hospital
was only asking for $200,000.
Commissioner Roy Ellis, the board's liaison to
the hospital, said that the number had been men-
tioned in a meeting and tossed out. He said that the
number would not meet the needs of the hospital
and that a million dollars had been settled upon to
ask.
When asked if the money was available, Aber-
crombie replied that it was in the half-penny option
sales tax that was passed a few years earlier.
When asked if the money could be used for land
acquisition, County Attorney Tom Reeves replied
that it could.
Commissioner Wayne Vickers made the motion
to pass the measure. It was approved unanimously
to thunderous applause from the audience.


Was Vote Legal?
cont from Page 1
nance the construction of and capital improvements
for a new public or not-for -profit hospital facility in
Madison County? The surtax shall not be used to
pay the salary of hospital staff or the other day-to-
day operating expenses of the hospital facility"
One anonymous citizen posted the following on
the message board of www.wctv.tv : "Last night the
citizens were stolen from and lied to. The hospital al-
ready owned land free and clear to build the new
hospital on. The county bought the land from the
hospital last night for ONE MILLION DOLLARS us-
ing hospital sales tax money. Then the county sold
the land back to the hospital for ONE HUNDRED
DOLLARS. The hospital will now take the
$999,900.00 and pay day to day operating expenses
and salaries (illegally?) and definitely immorally
and not in the spirit of the referendum."


"It would waste the public's money, penalize de-
velopers who weren't trying to game the system
and pour sand into Florida's business engine."
- Palm Beach Post

"Voters could easily end up unknowingly voting
against their own best interests. That's no way
to run a little city, and it's certainly no way to run
a state."
- Tampa Tribune

"I have a warm spot in our hearts for our home-
town, and democracy - how could that be bad?
The answer is it can be bad on several levels, not
the least of which is that it will fail to do what its
proponents promise."
- Ponte Vedra Recorder

"Amendment 4 will serve to throttle an eco-
nomic recovery and compound unemployment."
- Bradenton Herald

"Hometown Democracy is a splendid name for a
bad idea."
- Fort Myers News Press


"... don't make the solution worse than the
problem."
- Florida Times-Union
"The cost... would soar in the millions."
- Orlando Sentinel

"It's a simplistic, ham-handed overreaction."
- Charlotte Herald
"It's perfectly legitimate to vote 'no' to some-
thing that on the surface once sounded OK..."
- Tallahassee Democrat
"Those pushing the passage of Amendment 4
are simply looking for another opportunity to
prevail after a thorough airing of issues has re-
sulted in a vote by duly elected officials that is
contrary to their wishes. Exert a little 'hometown
democracy' of your own by voting 'No' on 4."
- FloridAgriculture Magazine

"Now is the time for Farm Bureau members to
engage in the 'No on 4' campaign. The issue will
affect our members directly and we will work to-
ward a victory for common sense and economic
sustainability."
- FFB President John Hoblick

The parents of pre-schoolers at Madison County
Central School arrived to fill up the cafeteria Thurs-
day night, Sept. 30, for Pre-K Parent Night.
It was an opportunity for parents to see their
children perform and display their adorable art-
work on the cafeteria walls. "We had a great
turnout," said Gladney Cherry, parent specialist
with the District School Board of Madison County
She read the book I know an Old Lady Who Swal-
lowed a Fly to delight the families in attendance, and
encouraged parents to enjoy reading with their chil-
dren on a regular basis.
"We're trying to give the parents an introduc-
tion to the school," said Cherry The students, age 3-
5, appeared to be enjoying themselves as well,
especially when the music started for their perfor-


in language and personal abilities, as well as large
and small motor skills.
Every Tuesday night in October, Parent Work-
shops will be held from 6-7 p.m. in the Madison
County Central School Library
"It's open to anyone, public or private schools,
and it's free," said Cherry The first Parent Work-
shop took place on Oct. 5, dealing with behavior and
organizational skills. Other topics included academ-
ic skills and units on reading and math.
For more information on the Parent Workshops,
call Gladney Cherry at (850) 973-5017.

Madison Academy students begin the day in the
lab observing marine organisms
On Sept. 24, Madison Academy sixth-graders head-
ed to Panacea to participate in the Florida State Uni-
versity Marine Laboratory Saturday-at-the-Sea
program. Science teacher, Willa Branham, led the stu-
dents on their field trip.
The program's goal is to stimulate in young minds
a strong interest in science by introducing them to the
various marine creatures of the Gulf of Mexico using
hands-on experience and study Upon arrival at Satur-
day-at-the-Sea, the students began working in the lab
performing experiments, collecting data and observing
marine animals and their behaviors.
Following the lab activity, students went on a col-
lecting trip to the salt marsh with a seine net. In the af-
ternoon, students went on a field trip on the
boats where they collected marine invertebrates and
fishes by trawl net. At the conclusion of the day, the
students returned to the lab to discuss and share their
wonderful experiences.
All the students had a great time, with one of them
commenting, "This was the best field trip ever!"

Taking the Lead National


4-H Week October 3-10, 2010


By Becky V Bennett
4-H is a community where more than 6.5 million
young people learn leadership, citizenship, and life
skills. Each year the first week of October marks
National 4-H Week. This week 4-H members across
the country are coming together to promote Nation-
al 4-H Week by participating in various projects and
community service events in their area. The theme
for this year's event is Taking the Lead; demonstrat-
ing the dedication of 4-H members to lead their com-
munities and "make the best better."
On Wednesday, October 6, millions of 4-H youth
across the country participated in 4-H National
Youth Science Day This year's science project is
"4-H20." Youth learned about water quality, cli-
mate change, and how to become stewards of the
environment. 4-H National Youth Science Day is
part of the 4-H Science curriculum that addresses
the increasing demand for science and technology


professionals. If your school or club is interested
in participating in the "4-H20" Science Project,
contact your local 4-H Agent Becky Bennett at 850-
973-4183.
Madison County has a strong history of 4-H and
is one of the oldest Extension services in the state of
Florida. Madison County 4-H got its start in the ear-
ly 1900s with tomato and corn clubs. Today, Madison
County is home to more than 80 4-H members, 33 vol-
unteers, and 5 clubs. 4-H offers the opportunity for
local youth to develop leadership, citizenship, and
life skills through hands-on experiences. 4-H pro-
motes learning by doing in a fun, educational, and
safe environment. To learn more about how to be-
come a 4-H member or Volunteer in Madison Coun-
ty, contact the University of Florida IFAS Extension
Office at 850-973-4138 or email bvbennett@ufl.edu.
Help make Madison County 4-H "The Best of the
Best!"


4-H members participate in planting trees with the Madison Garden Club at Camp Cherry Lake.

Fire
Prevention Week


By Kristin Finney
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madison County is home to nu-
merous volunteer, as well as career
firemen. From Pinetta to Greenville,
Sirmons to Cherry Lake, and from
Lee to Madison, each city in the com-
munity is represented by a fire de-
partment.
Firemen are given the job to pro-
tect homes and keep families safe if a
fire occurs. They risk their lives by en-
tering into smoldering buildings, blaz-
ing heat and dangerous carbon
monoxide filled rooms.
However, as a homeowner it is
your responsibility to try and prevent
fires from occurring, as well as educate
your children on proper fire safety
About.com offers the following fire

W/e aSdlue


safety checklist:
* Install and maintain a working
smoke alarm outside of every sleep
area and remember to change the bat-
tery at least once a year.
* Designate two escape routes
from each bedroom and practice them
regularly
* Teach everyone the "Stop, Drop,
and Roll" technique in case clothing
catches on fire.
* Avoid storing old mattresses in
the home or garage.
Teach kids that matches, lighters
and candles are tools, not toys. If you
suspect that a child is playing with
fire, check under beds and in closets
for telltale signs, like burned matches.
Matches and lighters should be
stored in a secure drawer or cabinet.

Making This Right

Beaches


I was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have
to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen,
hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.
- Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach


Claims

No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the
beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup
in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed.

Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet.
We have been working with impacted communities since day one.

Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is
to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have
19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping.

Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and
restaurant owners, helping to make them whole.

More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have
already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a
$20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost
incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.

BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism
recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches.

Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams
will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.
And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific
experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.

Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support
over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We
know we haven't always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil
is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do
everything we can to make this right.

Catching


Pigs
"You catch wild pigs by finding a suit-
able place in the woods and putting corn
on the ground. The pigs find it and begin
to come everyday to eat the free corn.
When they are used to coming every day,
you put a fence down one side of the
place where they are used to coming.
When they get used to the fence, they
begin to eat the corn again and you put
up another side of the fence. They get
used to that and start to eat again. You
continue until you have all four sides of
the fence up with a gate in the last side.
The pigs, which are used to the free corn,
start to come through the gate to eat that
free corn again.
You then slam the gate on them and
catch the whole herd. Suddenly the wild
pigs have lost their freedom. They run
around and around inside the fence, but
they are caught.
Soon, they go back to eating the free
corn. They are so used to it that they
have forgotten how to forage in the woods
for themselves, so they accept their cap-
tivity."
Those who study and teach on the
Constitution of the United States, such
as our recent speakers KrisAnne Hall
and Rebecca Odell Townsend, say that is
exactly what we see happening in Ameri-
ca. The government keeps pushing us to-
ward Socialism and keeps spreading the
free corn out in the form of programs
such as supplemental income, tax credit
for unearned income, tax cuts, tax ex-
emptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsi-
dies, payments not to plant crops (CRP),
welfare, medicine, drugs, etc. while we
continually lose our freedoms, just a lit-
tle at a time.
One should always remember two
truths:
1) There is no such thing as a free
lunch, and;
2) You can never hire someone to
provide a service for you cheaper than
you can do it yourself.
If you see that all of this wonderful
government 'help' is a problem con-
fronting the future of freedom in Ameri-
ca, you might be ready to take a stand.
But, if you think the free ride is essential
to your way of life, God help us all when
the gate slams shut!
Is it not time for our country to set the
emergency brake and turn the corner
back towards protecting the basic rights
and freedoms for all, as established in the
Constitution? Hmmmmm....Sounds to
me like that just might be the Conserva-
tive Corner where we need to turn.

Should Amendment


Eight Be Reconsidered?


By Kristin Finney
Greene Publishing, Inc.
In November 2010, voters will
see an area on their ballot entitled
Amendment Number 8: The Revi-
sion of the Class Size Require-
ments for Public Schools.
Originally passed in 2002, this
amendment stated that there
could be no more than 18 students
in prekindergarten through
grade three, no more than 22 stu-
dents in grades four through
eight and no more than 25 stu-
dents in grades nine through 12.
The new amendment would
relax, if passed, the average class
size to: 18 students in prekinder-
garten through grade three, 22
students in grades four through
eight and 25 students in grades
nine through 12. It will also cap
class sizes at a maximum of 21
students in prekindergarten
through grade three; 27 students
in grades four through eight; and
30 students in grades nine
through 12.
This amendment will only af-
fect core classes such as math, sci-
ence and English. Virtual and
elective class sizes will not be af-
fected by the passage of this
amendment.
This amendment will also
only relax the restraints. This
will not increase class sizes by
much and could save a lot of mon-
ey in the future. More than $18 bil-
lion has been spent on reducing
class sizes since 2002. But also the
slight increase in size could cost a
few jobs depending on the size of
the school as well as threaten the
one-on-one student-teacher rela-
tionship.
When this amendment is seen
on the ballot it will read:
Reference:
ARTICLE IX, SECTION 1 and
ARTICLE XII, SECTION 31
Summary:
The Florida Constitution cur-
rently limits the maximum num-
ber of students assigned to each
teacher in public school class-


rooms in the following grade
groupings: for prekindergarten
through grade 3, 18 students; for
grades 4 through 8, 22 students;
and for grades 9 through 12, 25
students. Under this amendment,
the current limits on the maxi-
mum number of students as-
signed to each teacher in public
school classrooms would become
limits on the average number of
students assigned per class to
each teacher, by specified grade
grouping, in each public school.
This amendment also adopts
new limits on the maximum num-
ber of students assigned to each
teacher in an individual class-
room as follows: for prekinder-
garten through grade 3, 21
students; for grades 4 through 8,
27 students; and for grades 9
through 12, 30 students. This
amendment specifies that class
size limits do not apply to virtual
classes, requires the Legislature
to provide sufficient funds to
maintain the average number of
students required by this amend-
ment, and schedules these revi-
sions to take effect upon approval
by the electors of this state and to
operate retroactively to the begin-
ning of the 2010-2011 school year.
An anonymous professor at
NFCC told this reporter, "I have
always said that if big govern-
ment was truly interested in cre-
ating well-informed citizens and
free thinkers, they would build
more schools, create more class-
rooms, hire more teachers and
limit class size to 10-12 students. I
think that the reason Amendment
8 is even an issue is that voters
passed to reduce class size. In
America (the land of the free and
the home of the brave) we are
spending more a year on prison-
ers than we are on educating an
individual student."
Superintendent of Schools,
Lou Miller, explained, "Since the
Class Size Constitutional Amend-
ment was passed in 2002, it was
phased in first at the district av-


erage for three years, then moved
to the school average for four
years and this year it moved to
the individual classroom aver-
age. The ratio of pupils to
teacher has remained at 18:1 for
PreK through third, 22:1 for
fourth through eighth and 25:1
for nineth through twelfth during
the entire phase-in."
"We have been successful in
the implementation of this class-
size amendment," said Miller,
"because of declining enrollment
and strict adherence to the
staffing allocation plan. This
year, however, has posed addi-
tional problems to maintain the
ratio in each classroom instead of
achieving a school average.
For example, when the nine-
teenth student moves into second
grade in a small school where
there is only one, second grade,
then we have to choose. Do we
force an out-of-zone attendance
kid to move, bus the student to a
school with more room or create
a combination second/third
grade class, if the third grade has
a seat available. Or, do we hire an
additional teacher and divide the
class of 19 students. It has been
very difficult to adjust to the
classroom-by-classroom levels.
"I strongly support the small
class size ratios but need the flex-
ibility to achieve the school aver-
age for each grade group. The
individual classroom cap has
caused us to make difficult deci-
sions that are not in the best in-
terest of students or financially
prudent.
Amendment 8 allows for the
same class sizes of 18, 22, and 25
to be achieved at the school aver-
age.
School administrators would
preserve the small teacher to stu-
dent ratio that is best for the stu-
dents. They would also have the
flexibility to meet the average for
Kindergarten through third,
fourth through eighth and ninth
through twelfth at each school.


The Republican Party


Holds Meeting At Shelbyv's


By Kristin Finney
Greene Publishing, Inc.
In preparation for the upcoming voting day,
the Republican Party met for a working lunch
meeting at Shelby's. These meetings take place
the first Monday of every month.
The meeting began with everyone saying the
Pledge of Allegiance. Following the pledge, Mike
Williams gave the invocation.
Judy McClain then stood before the group
and went over the previous meetings' minutes
and any changes that needed to be made to them.
The group made an emphasis on their appre-
ciation for the guest speaker they had at the last
meeting.
JP Maultsby then announced the opening of
the Republican Victory Office.
This office is located in Margie
Foust McLeod's office on the
south side of Highway 90.
The group gave their prais-
es and apprecia-
tion to Margie
for allowing them
to use her office
At the Victory
Office there will be
materials available
such as litera-
ture and yard
signs. There
are still many
improvements
to be made to
the office.
V They can cur-
rently support
local and state


candidates, but not on a Federal level. They hope
to be able to support Federal candidates in the
near future.
They then welcomed the guest speaker for the
afternoon, Jacob Bembry. Jacob is currently run-
ning for Mayor of the Town of Lee. Jacob spoke
of his memories with many of the members and
their families. He told the group that, "As Mayor
I would listen to everyone and make sure every-
one's voice is heard. That is why Lee is where it
is now with the septic system, because they did
not listen to the voice of the community." He also
took a couple of questions from the members on
the septic system and ways to improve the roads
in Lee.
The Republican Party then discussed upcom-
ing events. The Fifth Saturday Farmers and
Friends Festival will double as a political rally
this month. The next Republican Executive Meet-
ing will be held on Oct. 26.

United Way Celebrates


Community Outreach Activities


Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Kristin Finney, October 5, 2010
The members of the United Way met for the first time in October. From left to right, standing, are Howard Phillips, Vicki Howerton, Jackie Johnson, Carroll Rus-
so, Stephanie Carroll, Keith Ruff and Walter Boatright. Sitting from left to right are Ginger Jarvis, Mary Carrol Kaney and Sam McGee.


By Kristin Finney
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The United Way group in Madi-
son held their first meeting for the
month of October. The group ate deli-
cious pumpkin muffins and pimento
cheese sandwiches made by Ginger
Jarvis before beginning the meeting.
There was also a slideshow of pic-
tures from the dinner the United Way
hosted on Oct. 2.
Mary Carol Kaney began the
meeting by thanking everyone for
their help and support of the dinner.
Special thanks went to the Madison
County Community Bank, as well as
Tri-County Electric for the outstand-
ing donations and support of the


event.
Next on the agenda were the final
preparations for the celebrity waiter
event. Spots are still open to serve
and desserts are welcome as well.
The United Way would appreci-
ate any support that the community
is willing to give. They would like to
invite everyone to join them in this
fun event.
Nestle representative, Carroll
Russo, was also in attendance at this
meeting. Russo shared the many
ways that Nestle will be helping the
United Way organization in the up-
coming year. Nestle has planned a
team spirit day, Gators vs. Seminoles.
On this day, employees will wear


their team colors to raise awareness
for the United Way. Nestle also re-
cently hosted a dunk tank to raise
money for the United Way. They
raised nearly $200.
Howard Phillips said of Nestle,
"They are an example of a good, com-
munity involved big business. Big
businesses always get a bad reputa-
tion and Nestle just goes to show that
they are not all bad."
United Way will also be hosting
a boot drive, along with the local fire
department. The firefighters will be
collecting donations on Oct. 8 and 22
to help support the Madison County
United Way Campaign. They will be
on the main street corners from 2-


5:15 p.m. All funds collected will stay
in Madison.
This past year, Madison raised
over $100,000. They could have used
much more, but are very thankful to
the community for all of their sup-
port. Kaney said during the meeting,
"Madison is leading the way among
the United Way community."
"Madison County is one of five
persistent poverty counties in the
state of Florida." said Phillips. "It is
so amazing that we can receive so
much support from the community."
Giving increased by 10.96 percent
this year and the United Way is very
thankful for all the communities'
support.


Keeping


Madison Public


Library Beautiful


Greene
Gale Dickert


By M.K. Graves
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison Public Library is
getting a landscape facelift, thanks
to nearby resident, Gale Dickert,
whose aim is to beautify the employ-
ee parking lot and west side of the
Library that once looked bare.
"She has it all mapped out," said
Rebecca Stephens, who works at the
Madison Public Library Circulation
Desk.
Dickert started work on Satur-
day, Oct. 2, with the help of Lewis
Ghent. They should have the first
phase of the project done in the next
two weeks. At one point, Dickert
drove to Tallahassee to get more
trees. Ghent was putting down


beautify the Madison Public Library
mulch.
"She has planted 16 Sweet Vibur-
nums behind the dumpster and three
white Natchez Crapemyrtle Trees,"
said April Brooks, library manager.
Brooks said the Library appreci-
ates these donations to beautify the
Library's landscape.
As for other Dickert-initiated
projects, Brooks said, "We're think-
ing about putting a future rosebed
beside the parking lot and getting
kids involved with 'grow your own
garden."
The library is located at 378 NW
College Loop. The phone number is
973-6814.

450 Kids Participate

In A Day For Kids


It was a beautiful Saturday morn-
ing in Madison as staff and volunteers
from the Boys & Girls Club of Tabula
Rasa descended on Lanier Field on
Sept. 25 to kick-off A Day for Kids.
Local families stopped at booths for
information and free samples from lo-
cal groups like SWAT, Safe Zone, Madi-
son County Health Department and
Whole Child. There was plenty to do,
with arts and crafts, face-painting, a
dunking booth, bounce houses, obstacle
courses, game stations, music, and even
a family reading nook with free books.
Mayor Judy Townsend came out
and shared an official proclamation de-
claring the day as the Official Boys &
Girls Club Day for Kids in Madison
County


Children received free hot dogs and
gummy snacks courtesy of the Boys
and Girls Club and Publix, and cold wa-
ter donated by Nestle kept over 450 kids
refreshed as they ran, played and ex-
plored. Parent groups sold wings, pop-
corn, baked goods and more to raise
funds for their school's Boys and Girls
Club program.
The Boys and Girls Club of Tabula
Rasa is able to operate in Madison
County due to the generous support of
Twin Oaks Juvenile Development and a
21st Century Grant from the Florida De-
partment of Education. The club also
serves Twin Oaks' six juvenile deten-
tion facilities across North Florida.

The Agency for Health Care Administra-

nized in 1828. That is a
long time ago. For the
past 20 years, the ab-

Founder's Day has al-
ways been the Preacher
riding up on horseback
or in a horse and buggy,
and delivering the An-
nual Founder's Day Ser-
mon out under the
shade trees on the
Church Grounds. This
is the way the early pio-
neers used to worship
over 100 years ago.
We will still have
most all the booths that
have become famous for
Founder's Day activi-
ties. Recently, thanks to
Willie and Bobo Agner,
the Church folks picked
off over 20 bushels of
delicious green peanuts
that will be boiled to
perfection by Eugene
Williams at Founder's

certainly a Southern
delicacy, and there will
be plenty to eat at

You Can Decide To

Manage Monev


Madison Count
Extension Servi
Diann Douglas
Guest Colummist


Every day, we make
decisions about how to
spend money Often,
these choices are made
without planning and be-
fore you know it, you are
short on money You can
choose to take control of
your money plan your
spending and control im-
pulse purchases. Don't
think of this new strategy
as a budget, it's a spend-
ing plan. There are sever-
al advantages to a
spending plan; you live
within your income,
spend your money wisely,
reduce debt and reach fi-
nancial goals.
Learning to manage
your money now will
make life easier in the fu-
ture. Setting goals is the
first step. Write them
down and look at it often
to remind yourself what
you are working on. Add
up your total take home
pay and know the exact
amount of money you
have to pay bills with each
month.
Track your spending
for a month to determine
where your money is go-
ing. This means you
write down the amount of
money you spend every
time you take out your
wallet. If you have more
going out than you bring
in, it's time to trim in dif-
ferent categories. Here
are a few ideas for cutting
back on expenses and
generating more money:
* Recycle clothing or
take it to a consignment
store or consignment
shop which will sell it for
you and split the profit.
* Have a garage sale
and bank the profits.

* Eliminate conve-
nience food meals and
prepared snacks from
your shopping list - make
them from scratch.
* Dry clothes outside
on sunny days to reduce
your electric bill.
* Shop when items go
on sale or when prices are
lower.
* Set a limit on the
cost of gifts. Better yet,
give the gift of your time
and do special favors for
friends and relatives.
* Brown bag lunch on
a regular basis and save
the money you would
spend buying lunch every
day Take it a step further
and use the money to pay
extra on a credit payment
or start a savings account
to have a cushion for un-
expected expenses.
* Ask friends and co-
workers what they do to
spend less and save mon-

that many people have
great ideas that work!

In 1935, a group of

came the first pastor
of the church.
It was only while

for the church did I

discover that one of my family members ac-
tually had part in the formation of the
church I attend today. Marylou Flynn Las-
seter, (who is first cousin to my late grand-
mother, Ava -

that her and

Jim Anderson,

Uncle Jim

the brother-in-

great-grand-
mother, Mamie

of Marylou's
mother, Ollie

was married to
their sister,
Mattie. The

Uncle Jim's
joys in life was

I never knew Uncle Jim, because he died
before I was born, but I remember being told
a few stories about him by my mama, Louella
Sealey Bembry, and by my granny, Ava Lee.
One story that I remember Mama telling
that is fixed in my mind today It had been


passed down to her
from family members.
pSh'he told how Uncle

Jim lived down south,

That area. Uncle Jim be-
came convicted by the
Holy Spirit, recalling
that he had something
he needed to take care of. Before he had given
his life to Jesus, he had taken a plug of to-
bacco without paying for it. Uncle Jim set out
walking from where he was back to the little
town of Lee
to pay 10
cents for
that tobacco.

Students from Madison High,
Central, and Madison Academy will
be joining thousands of other youth
on athletic fields all across America
on Wednesday, October 13, to share
their Christian faith with fellow stu-
dents during the seventh annual na-
tional Fields of Faith event. This
rapidly-growing, interdenomination-
al outreach event will be held at more
than 400 locations throughout the na-
tion on this same date.
The impetus for Fields of Faith
began with Jeff Martin, an FCA staff
person, who conceived the idea from
an Old Testament reference in 2
Chronicles 34, after searching how to
help today's generation of students
face spiritual battles and temptations.
In the scripture, King Josiah, an
influential teenager very similar to
Fields of Faith attendees today, gath-
ered his people and challenged them
to read the Bible. As a result, they

In 2004, the Josiah-influenced
dream came true when 6,000 stu-
dents gathered on school athletic
fields throughout three states for
the first Fields of Faith event. That
was the beginning of what has be-
come one of the most significant
faith-related gathering of students
in a single day.
"Fields of Faith challenges this
generation to be committed to read-
ing the Bible and living a trans-
formed life for Jesus Christ," said
Martin. "It's students challenging

In the fall, the outdoors becomes a wonderland
of color as the leaves change into the colors of the
rainbow. The weather's cool, and the chance for ad-
venture will lure many families into wilderness ar-
eas for hiking, camping, picnicking, photo shoots
and opportunities to be outside and observe nature
at this most-beautiful time of the year. However, fall
is also the time of year when many children get sep-
arated from their parents and become lost in the
wilderness, which is one of the reasons I've written
the book, "How to Lost-Proof Your Child."
Having a canine friend can help your child stay
warm and be found quicker than if he's in the woods
alone.
The number-one rule for lost-proofing your
child in wilderness areas, parks or national forests
is for them to stay together. If children have a young
friend, a sibling or a pet with them, like a dog, they
have a much-greater chance of being found quickly
and being protected from falling temperatures, than
if they're lost and alone. If you enforce the stay to-
gether rule, you can ensure that your child remains
warm, if rescuers are delayed, or if the child has to
spend the night in the woods before he or she's
found.
While I was researching "How to Lost-Proof
Your Child," I read in the newspaper about a 2-year-
old Canadian boy who wandered away from the fam-
ily campsite with a stray dog the family had
befriended. The little boy became lost. Not until the
next day did the search-and-rescue officials find the
child. The dog had kept the boy warm all night. One
of the rescuers stated that most adults wouldn't
have made it through the night before succumbing
to hypothermia, much less a 2-year-old child.
Thanks to the dog, the little boy came through
his ordeal fine.
The children most-likely to get lost are often 1- to
3-year olds, because they have no navigation skills
and are totally unaware of the concept of being lost.
Once they wander away, they move aimlessly with no
specific direction in mind. Generally when children
that age become tired and sleepy, they'll seek out a
spot to lie down and sleep. Often, they pick locations
that make searchers finding them difficult, such as
inside a hollow tree, under a large rock or even in
thick tangled foliage at the end of a fallen tree.
The second group of children most likely to be-
come lost is 3- to 6-year olds. You may need a longer
time to find them than you will 1- to 3-year olds, be-
cause these youngsters have the ability to walk
great distances. They're aware of the concept of be-
ing lost and often try to return to their parents or


Having a canine friend can help your child stay
warm and be found quicker than if he's in the woods
alone.

campsite, not knowing in which direction they
should travel; therefore, they may walk aimlessly in
the wrong direction for several hours. Generally
these children are found within 1 to 2 miles from the
point where they've become lost; but, they may trav-
el as far as 5 miles before being found.
Any time you take children into the wilderness,
provide each of them with a whistle they can wear
around their necks at all times. Teach them that
when they're alone, they need to hug a tree and blow
the whistle until you come to them. You need to as-
sure your children that if they get lost or can't find
their way back to camp or to the trail on which
they've been traveling, that they must stay put. You
will come to them.
Fall is a beautiful time of year - a time for fam-
ily fun and adventure in the out of doors. If you
take the simple precautions that I advocate in "How
to Lost-Proof Your Child," you and your family can
have make great family memories safely in the out-
doors this fall season.

doors and to get free tips, tactics and videos, visit

According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC), all three species of sea
turtles that nest regularly on the state's beaches had
annual nest counts well above average for the previous
10 years.
This news is especially good for loggerhead sea
turtles, which have experienced declines in nesting in
recent years. Loggerheads, the species that most com-
monly nests in Florida, had nest counts that were 30
percent higher than the 10-year average.
"We're encouraged by the high count, especially
considering the oil spill and the extreme cold weather
earlier in the year," said Dr. Blair Witherington, an
FWC Fish and Wildlife Research Institute scientist.
"However, one good year can't reverse a declining
trend. It will take many years of data to determine if
this is a new nesting trend - obviously one that we

Nest numbers for
leatherback and green
sea turtles also contin-
ued to increase, with ,
nests in 2010 totaling the
second-highest since
standardized counts be-
gan in 1989.
Nest counts are per-
formed each year

beaches along both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts.
In one of the largest wildlife counts in the nation,
hundreds of partners diligently survey Florida's In-
dex Nesting Beaches throughout the summer sea tur-
tle nesting season.
"It's a big job that requires a dedicated group of
nest-counting experts," Witherington said. "It's espe-
cially rewarding for those involved when the turtles
make a good showing."
FWC's role in coordinating Florida's sea turtle
nest counts is funded by sales of the sea turtle license
plate. For more information about sea turtles, includ-
