Not Everyone Happy
With Lee's Wastewater System
Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Jacob Bembry, May 12, 2011
The Town of Lee's new lift station for its wastewater system is under construction at the southern corner of the town's business annex (the old Lee School). Not everyone in Lee is happy with the system as it nears completion. Thelma Thompson said that she has heard that it could cost her an extra 50-60 dollars per month, which she cannot afford, because she lives on a fixed income of $704 a month.
She is asking others with her concerns to give her a call at 971-0011 to see what they can do about the concerns.
Jeremy Haynes:
One Step Closer To The Big Leagues
By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc.
The dream still lives for Jeremy Haynes.
After being released from the California Angels farm system, Haynes, who grew up in Madison near Carson Ealy Recreation Park found himself playing in Lynchburg, Va., for the Atlanta Braves farm team.
Haynes' trip to Lynchburg hasn't always been a straight line. He originally signed with Florida State University while in high school, but opted to go to Tallahassee Community College, where he played for Mike McLeod for two years. After TCC, he signed to play for the University of Miami, but chose instead to play for the California Angels' farm system. Before going to Lynchburg to play for the
Hillcats, Haynes was playing AA ball for the Arkansas Travelers.
Haynes is now a relief pitcher for the Hillcats. While with the Angels' system, he was a starter before being switched to relief.
As of Wednesday, May 11, Haynes had pitched two innings for the Hillcats and had given up no runs, no hits and had struck out three batters.
Haynes velocity is great with his pitches being clocked anywhere from 92-97 miles per hour.
When asked what he enjoyed while growing up in Madison, Haynes answered, "Playing baseball in the rec. park league and hanging out with friends."
He says that he now enjoys playing Playstation 3, while out on the road playing baseball. He jokes that it helps him "stay out
of trouble."
The son of Gerald and Shirley Haynes, who now live in Pinetta, Jeremy said that church also meant a lot to him while he was growing up. He attended St. James Missionary Baptist Church where David Delaughter was his pastor.
"We're in last place right now," Jeremy said of the Hillcats, "but we've done some great things and won two ball games the last couple of weeks. We are on our way up."
When asked if there was anything that he would like to add, Madison's native son said, "I would like to thank the City of Madison for their support through Facebook, phone calls and speaking to my family. I would also like to thank God. He's so awesome."

DASH Is Great IVleal Plan To Lower Blood Pressure
Since it is National you get started: High Blood Pressure Education Month all month, let's talk about proven strategies that will help reduce high blood pressure. Consumers are often confused by products on the market that claim to reduce blood pressure and many over the counter products are not researched and proven to be affective. A researched based meal pattern that has proven to reduce blood pressure is the DASH meal plan.
Conducted in the early 90's, the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH), was a scientific dietary study to determine if a diet plan without medication could reduce blood pressure. The study was funded by the National Institute of Health and conducted at Harvard, Duke, John Hopkins and Louisiana State University Results showed that both men and women eating the DASH plan experienced a significant drop in both their systolic and diastolic blood pressure readings.
The DASH eating plan emphasizes fresh fruit and vegetables and low fat dairy products. It is moderate in total fat and low in saturated fat and cholesterol. It also includes whole grains, poultry, fish and nut. It also recommends reducing salt and sodium intake.
Starting on the DASH eating plan is easy It requires no special foods and no recipes to follow Here are some tips to help
Make gradual changes like adding a serving of fruit or vegetables at lunch and dinner.
Gradually increase your intake of fat free and low fat dairy products to 3 servings a day
If you eat large portions of meat, cut them back by a half or third at each meal.
Try 2 or more meatless meals each week.
Try serving casseroles and stir-fry dishes, which have more vegetables, grains and dry beans.
Eat baked or grilled fish during the week but be careful of bottled marinades, they are often high in sodium.
Eat fresh fruit, raw vegetables, or low fat and fat free yogurt for snacks.
Use herbs and spices to enhance the flavor of you foods.
Limit your meals eaten out, since most prepared food is high in sodium.
Make one or two changes each week. Eat a variety of foods and cut back on serving sizes. For more information about the DASH eating plan and recipes, visit the NHLBI's "Your Guide to Controlling High Blood Pressure at /hbp/index.html and click on Prevention.
If you are under a doctor's care for high blood pressure, be sure you take you medication and follow the doctor's recommendations. Your efforts to reduce sodium intake will help you overall health.

A Face In Search Of A Fist
Jacob's Ladder
Jacob Bembry
When I was in middle school, I didn't have nearly as many friends as my face did. For some reason, my face was out introducing itself to different members of my class and the classes surrounding my class. More accurately, my face introduced itself to the fist of many other students.
I was a nerd in school before the word even became popular. Heck, until Happy Days came on TV there were really no cool names for nerds like me. Before, I may have been an egghead but I went on to stardom as the class nerd, or at least one of the class nerds. Later, nerds became known as "geeks," but like "egghead," the name isn't as cool as nerd.
I look back on my years in middle and high
school and realize that there are some things I would like to go back and punch myself in the face for. I stopped going to church as a teenager and wished that I had stuck with it. I think that I would be a better man today. I didn't study the way I should have because I knew that I could get by without studying. I would have been a much better student if I'd had my nose stuck in my school books instead of watching TV and listening to so much music (particularly that played by Steve Ocean, Hollywood in the Morning and Sandy Beach on Gulf 104). I wish that I had stuck with athletics in high school (and on into my adult life). I wish that I had not given up so easily on things unless they were things that I could not control which I should have just never grabbed hold of.
I could fret all day long about things I should have done or should not have done, but the nice thing about life and about knowing Christ is that I still have opportunities to set things straight. I still make mistakes. Everyone does but with Christ as my advocate and a strong faith, I can keep on keeping on until one day, I get it straight.
If you look around Madison County you will find many small, family owned businesses. And if you look closer, you will find that many of those businesses are operated by not only one family member, but in some cases, a spouse or even their children. Many of our local businesses, particularly agri-businesses, are owned by second and third generation family members.
If you are an owner of a business, you should be aware that you can save family income and payroll taxes by putting junior family members on the payroll. You may be able to turn high-taxed income into tax-free or low-taxed income, achieve social security tax savings (depending on how your business is organized), and even make retirement plan contributions for your child.
In addition, employment of a child age 18 (or if a full-time student, age 19-23) may be a way to save taxes on the child's unearned income. Let's look at a few key considerations.
You can turn some of your high-taxed income into tax-free or low-taxed income by shifting some of your business earnings to a child as wages for services performed by him or her However, in order for your business to deduct the wages as a business expense, the work performed by the child must be legitimate and the child's salary must be reasonable.
For example, suppose
a business owner operating as a sole proprietor is in the 35% tax bracket. He hires his 17-year-old daughter to help with office work full-time during the summer and part-time into the fall. She earns $5,700 during the year (and doesn't have earnings from other sources).
The business owner saves $1,995.00 (35% of $5,700) in income taxes at no cost to his daughter, who can use her $5,700 standard deduction ($5,800 for 2011) to completely shelter her earnings. The business owner could save an additional $1,750 in taxes if he could keep his daughter on the payroll for a longer period and pay her an additional $5,000. She could shelter the additional amount from tax by making a tax-deductible contribution to her own IRA.
Family taxes are cut even if the child's earnings exceed his or her standard deduction and IRA deduction. That's because the unsheltered earnings will be taxed to the child beginning at a rate of 10%, instead of being taxed at the parent's higher rate.
Keep in mind that bracket-shifting works even if the child is subject to the kiddie tax. The kiddie tax only causes a child's investment income in excess of $1,900 for 2011 to be taxed at the parent's marginal rate. It has no impact on the child's wages and other earned income, which can be sheltered by the child's

Benefits Of Hiring Your Children
standard deduction.
What about income tax withholding? Your business probably will have to withhold federal income taxes on your child's wages. However, an employee can claim exempt status if he or she had no federal income tax liability for last year, and expects to have none for this year. But if your child is not exempt from withholding, he or she will probably get a refund for part or all of the withheld tax when their tax return is filed.
There is Social Security tax savings, too. If your business is not incorporated, you can also save some self-employment (i.e., social security) tax dollars by shifting some of your earnings to a child. That's because employment for Social Security (FICA) tax purposes doesn't include services performed by a child under the age of 18 while employed by a parent.
A similar but more liberal exemption applies for Federal Unemployment
taxes (FUTA), which exempts earnings paid to a child under age 21 while employed by his or her parent. The FICA and FUTA exemptions also apply if a child is employed by a partnership consisting solely of his parents.
The bottom line is that you can save a considerable amount by putting junior family members on the payroll. However, there are many other intrinsic benefits as well. Hiring your child would be a terrific opportunity to instill values, such as a strong work ethic, that they can carry on throughout their careers.

There is a sacking of our heritage going on. What is the cost of teaching our U.S. Constitution? One in North Florida learned, because she was sacked! Yes, KrisAnne Hall, an Assistant States' Attorney of Live Oak, was fired because she taught the Constitution to groups, pro bono.
KrisAnne Hall, an attorney in the U.S. Army and later in private practice, had taken up the enforcement side of the law.
Her boss, the States' Attorney for Florida's 3rd Judicial Circuit, an elected position, told her to stop teaching local groups the Constitution, even pro bono on her own time.
She continued to speak on the Constitution to groups such as the Madison Republican Club and was shortly thereafter fired.
To fire her, the States' Attorney violated her 1st Amendment rights to free speech. He also voided her right to privacy a right recognized by William Pitt as he described that even the King did not have the right to disturb ones privacy (3/18/1763 Cobbett's Parliamentary History Vol. 15, p. 1307)
However, being fired wasn't something wasted! It was a gift. She was tested, as all leaders are tested and she, the good American that she is, passed!
For her battle on the front line, the Republican Executive Committee of Madison County Florida, awarded KrisAnne Hall their coveted annual James Blair Constitutional Award.
William E. Gladstone said of our Constitution that it was "...the most wonderful work ever struck off at a given time by the brain and purpose of Man." (Sept-Oct, 1878, North American Review, 185)
When you release constitutional ideas into society the consequences go on and on. So who could be afraid?
There had been a deep snowstorm in Georgetown, District of Columbia. The Mayor solicited a donation of thirty cord of wood, then in the vaults of the Capitol, for their relief. Congressman James K. Polk, acknowledging that it was an ungracious task, opposed the precedent of appropriating public funds for relief in behalf of even the suffering poor

tended, "...that it was not competent for the House to vote donations of fuel for the people of the District. If so, it would have power also to vote millions of the public money to feed and clothe the suffering poor of the District. The House had no right to give away the public money for any such purpose: and if gentlemen were disposed to be liberal, let them be liberal out of their money" He then proposed a deduction from the compensation of the members of those who voted for this charity one day's pay It failed of passage.

Did You Know...
A baker's dozen consists of 13 for a reason! According to legend, a witch near Albany, NY demanded 13 items every time she came in to a particular bakery, and one day the old baker could not afford her extra biscuit. She sneered some strange words at the man, and he suffered terrible luck from then on, until he brought her another 13 rolls. After that life was once again easy for the baker and word spread around town. The custom is still sometimes practiced today.

According to Smithsonian Magazine "fear of the #13 costs American a billion dollars per year in absenteeism, train and plane cancellations, and reduced commerce on the 13th of the month."

Fear of Friday the 13th dates back to Nordic Mythology. Many of their thirteenth Gods met with violent deaths, such as Loki, the trickster.
Ancient Romans regarded the number 13 as a symbol of death, destruction and misfortune.

Lizzy Borden uttered a total of 13 words at her trial.

There were 13 original colonies.

A witches coven consists of 13 members.

Tarot Card number 13 is the Death Card, depicting the Grim Reaper
(although it is read as transition or change and not literal death).

Hotels rarely have a room number 13. Usually it is called 12a or 14. Same with floors of buildings and the elevators without a #13 button. Highways sometimes will skip exit 13 altogether also.

There are 13 steps leading to the gallows.

13 knots in a hangman's noose.

As the women fixed their plates and took their seats, they were welcomed to the tables by beautiful African Marigolds in the center of each table. Then began the dinner discussions. Each table carried on a unique conversation, some about the weather, others about what was happening around town.
There were many compliments on the variety of salads.
Then began the entertainment portion of the evening. Ginger Jarvis was a one-woman-show and kept the crowd laughing the whole time. She explained that the program was called, "Ladies in Song," and to honor that she would be singing some classic tunes that are all about women.

Chamber Of Commerce Stays Busy, Even During Economic Slowdown
By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.
Since Ted Enzminger left in January, Cindy Vees has been acting director of the Chamber of Commerce, and she and her part-time staff have been busy. Even in tough economic times, or perhaps especially in tough economic times, the Chamber is still out there "doing anything we can to enhance the business environment in Madison County," she said.
That of course, is the purpose of the Chamber: to enhance, develop and grow a favorable business environment. "Basically, we will train businesses to help themselves. We help them help themselves...some people may have a misconception that if they join the Chamber of Commerce it will solve all their problems, but what we do is educate them and their employees to help them become prosperous," and also offer them several tools to work with to achieve that goal.
One of those tools is an online resource center on its website,, that the Chamber hopes to have up and running in 30 to 60 days. It will feature an online library of information to meet the needs of business owners, as well as business counseling and advice, and workshops covering topics such as employee training and effective business practices. The Chamber also has hopes for a new, larger location in the works that will house not only their offices, but also a Small Business Development Center.
There are membership dues for joining the Chamber, a sliding scale based on how many employees that business has. The lowest fee, $50, is for churches only; the next lowest, for the smallest of businesses (one to five employees) is $100, and it goes up in increments to $500, "which are your banks and utility companies," said Vees. There are also individual fees for people who would like to join: $50 for one person and $75 or a couple. The
benefits of membership include promotion of one's business year-round, free announcements in the Chamber Weekly E-News, free use of Chamber Bulk-Rate Mail Permit, and a free customized internet website listing on members will have a password and username for the site so

they can create and edit their owning listing.
Currently, the Chamber has 170 active members, either located or operating in Madison County -small businesses, large businesses, non-profits, civic organizations, churches and many others, and it also holds a number of fundraisers throughout the
year in order to keep membership dues affordable. "In a small rural county like Madison, we can't survive of membership fees alone." She added that their three biggest fundraisers of the year are Down Home Days, the annual Chamber Golf Tournament, and the annual Banquet and Silent Auction, along with a number of smaller events.
"Tourism is the other big hat we wear," said Vees. "That's a whole other mission right there." The Chamber coordinates tour groups such as the cycling tour group, the Florida Freewheelers Bicycle Club, which pedaled through the county during the first few days of May. Michael Halley Chair of the Cycling Committee, helped oversee that event and also other cycling groups that want to tour the County's many bike trails. Monday, May 16, a Sunshine Bus Tour will be bring a group to take the Ray Charles Tour in Greenville and have lunch at O'Neal's. When a business owner wants to relocate to Madison County, the Chamber gets them the information they need. Vees also works on tourist development grants on behalf of the county
She is also working on getting a survey out to the business owners to see what their needs are and how the Chamber can gear their workshops and other tools toward better meeting the needs local business owners have; in order to be more effective, "we need their input." Local business should look for the survey within the next few days.
If anyone would like more information, signing up for the weekly newsletter is easy, and costs nothing. Simply email Vees at and let her know that you would like to be added to email list. The newsletter goes out every Monday
Also, the Chamber hosts a Chamber Day at 5 p.m. on the third Tuesday of the month, each month at a different local business. Contact the Chamber at 973-2788 for locations or check the online Chamber E-News if you're on the email list. You can also catch up with some of their latest news on Facebook.
Florida's Prison Inmates Can No Longer Light Up After September 30
By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.
A countdown clock on the Florida Department of Corrections' internal website ticks off the number of days until the smoking ban for inmates in Florida prisons takes effect Sept. 30. As of Wednesday, May 11, inmates have 141 days left before they must surrender their smokes.
Edwin Buss, Secretary of the Florida Department of Corrections, announced the ban March 14, a month after being appointed to
the position by Governor Rick Scott on Valentine's Day. Buss, who formerly headed Indiana's prison system, where smoking has been banned since 1995 (Texas was the first state to institute a prison smoking ban in 1994), was reportedly surprised to find that Florida still permitted inmates to puff away in prisons yards (smoking in the cells has been illegal for at least a decade).
At least half of the states already ban smoking in their prison systems, and Georgia will join the lineup with a ban go-
ing into effect Dec. 1. The idea of a smoking ban for Florida's state
prisons has been kicked around in Tallahassee at least since 1992; former Florida legislator R.Z. Safley proposed the idea, but it never caught on mainly due to heavy opposition from the
tobacco lobby.
Among the reasons Buss cited for the ban were cleaner surroundings free of tobacco pollution and a safer prison system as well. Once cigarettes are gone, prisoners will no longer be permitted to have cigarette lighters, either.
But the primary reason, Buss emphasized, is the reduction in health care costs; last year, Florida inmates cost taxpayers several million in hospital care for tobacco-related illnesses such as COPD, heart diseases, lung cancers and other respirato-

ry/heart problems. The ban will also benefit non-smoking inmates who will no longer be exposed to second-hand smoke.
Doug Freer, Tobacco Prevention Specialist with the Madison County Health Department, says that a lot of times people just don't comprehend the danger of second-hand smoke, or how many illnesses, especially heart attacks, have been linked to it. In a confined area like a prison, even an outdoor prison yard, there isn't much room to get away from it, especially if a majority of the prisoners are smokers.
In the meantime, nicotine-addicted inmates and those coming into the system with a cigarette habit, will have a little over four months to prepare. The Department of Corrections will provide help for quit-
ting to any inmates who request it; in fact, Freer added, inmates at the Madison Correctional Institution are already in a program weaning them down on the number of cigarettes they're allowed to have per day. However, officials at MCI said they could not comment locally on the matter.
"We've been offering smoking cessation help to prisoners for years," said Freer, "But until Governor Scott's ban, there was very little interest in it."
Freer also added that there is still free help available to members of the community who would like to quit the tobacco habit. Call the Quitline at 1-877-U-CAN-NOW (1-877-822-6669) or contact Preston Mathews at 850-728-5479, to inquire about free smoking cessation classes.
Texaco Country Showdown
By Kristin Finney Greene Publishing, Inc.
Many have heard of the Colgate Country Showdown, this year, however, the competition took on a different name. It is now called t he Texaco Country Showdown. One of this years contestants is Sarah
Somebody Else Wants It!
Got something you no longer use or need?

Starling. She has been competing in the competition for three years; each year qualifying to reach the final round. This year is no different. Sarah has been chosen to be one of 15 finalists in the 2011 competition.
Her interest in the competition began when John Wilder, from 98.1 Country out of Live Oak, told her she should compete. Sarah had been doing commercials for the station for a while. Starling said jokingly, "He basically said that I better enter."
Normally the qualifying rounds take place at Rascals bar in Lowndes County. This year Sarah sang "Why Haven't I Heard From You" by Reba McEntire, "Ghost In This House" by Allison Krauss, and "Outlaw Women" by Hank Williams Jr.
The final competition will take place at Spirit of the Suwannee in Live Oak on June 11, at 7 p.m. There will be a total of 15 finalists. The judges will be judging based on marketability for country music, stage presence, talent and originality. Musicians can get extra points for original songs. While Sarah does write her own music, she is not sure that she will be doing an original song for the competition.
She asks the community to join her at the final competition to help cheer her and the other contestants on. She stated, "Having a large crowd definitely helps. The more people you have cheering for you really does help with what the judges think. It also helps boost the singers confidence." She also said of the competition, "Third times the charm right?"

At Madison First Baptist Church
By Nell Dobbs
"Nurture Your Soul' on the cover of a tablet at Fred's. How?
Give thanks in all things to the Lord for His great love and mercies, for His Word, for Jesus, for parents, and on this day, especially mothers.
Preacher's message was about mothers four of them:
Jochabed mother of Aaron, Miriam and Moses who dared disobey Pharaoh by putting Moses in an ark and hiding him in the bulrushes where Pharaoh's daughter found him, took him to the place and reared him as her son, being cared for by his own mother.
The second, Hannah, who had no child and was provoked by the adversary She was dearly loved by her husband. She grieved. She prayed. She cried. She promised the Lord she would give him to the Lord (He'd never get a haircut). She said she lent him to the Lord as long as she lived. That was Samuel.
Solomon was the wisest man who ever lived. Two women (harlots) stood before him, claiming the baby was hers. The king said, "Bring a sword, cut him in two. Give half to one and half to the other." The real mother told the King to give the baby to the other woman, thus the king knew who the real mother was.
The fourth Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist. Elizabeth and Zecharias were both old, both righteous, both walking with the Lord, but childless. An angel told Zecharias that his prayer was heard and they would have a son to be called John. "How can this be?" The angel said, "Because I am Gabriel and you didn't believe me so you won't be able to talk 'till he is born."
We give thanks for Jimmy and Sabrina Register's newborn Gabriel's mazing birth and survival. Amen! He joins brother James Register III.
We give thanks also for Lydia Joy Noonan, born April 22 to Kelly and Jeremy Noonan. She joins Samuel Wisdom and Lucy, so Bobby and Debbie Kinsey are rejoicing.
There's to be a baby shower on May 15 for Sarah and Ray Pike, who are expecting a baby girl to join Henry Fisher, Marshall and Archer. Special graduates' breakfast also on May 15 at 8 a.m.

Simple Steps To Save Money On
Your Car
(NAPSI)Experts are predicting that gas prices will continue rising to historic highs this summer, forcing vehicle owners to find ways to save money when it comes to maintaining their cars. Many Americans are already living on tight budgets, so practicing some quick, inexpensive and easy car maintenance can help you save and protect your investment.
Maintain the air to save money on fuel. The U.S. Department of Energy reports that under-inflated tires can increase fuel consumption by up to 3 percent. One study estimates that 50 to 80 percent of the tires rolling on U.S. roads are under inflated. Properly inflated tires on all American cars could save up to 2 billion gallons of gas a year.
What's more, a clogged air filter can increase fuel consumption by as much as 10 percent. Air filters keep impurities from damaging the interior of the engine, so replacing dirty filters will save gas and protect your engine.
More ways to save money on fuel are available at
Reduce your insurance costs by shopping around. Prices vary from company to company, so it pays to do your homework. Get at least three price quotes. You can call companies directly or access information on the Internet.
Get slick to reduce maintenance costs and save fuel. Upgrading to one of today's modern high-performance motor oils can make a meaningful improvement to your car's fuel economy and engine life. For instance, independent studies have documented that Royal Purple motor oil improves fuel economy by as much as 5 percent and significantly reduces engine wear. Using high-performance synthetic motor oil, as opposed to conventional oils, also allows for more miles between oil changes, reducing maintenance costs and time spent working on the car.

Florida Crackers: The Cattlemen and Cowboys of Florida
By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc.
I received a pleasant surprise in the mail a few weeks ago. I received a DVD copy of an independent documentary entitled Florida Crackers: The Cattlemen and Cowboys of Florida. I sat down in my living room last Tuesday evening and watched Florida Crackers from start to finish.
The movie tells some of the history of the American cattle trade. Ponce de Leon first introduced cattle in America on his return trip to Florida in 1521. A few days after de Leon and his crew unloaded the cows and bulls, the Indians attacked the Spaniards and shot de Leon in the hip with a poison arrow. The Spaniards fled to Cuba, leaving the cattle behind. Ponce de Leon died from the wound while in Cuba. A few years later, more Spaniards arrived and found the cattle flourishing.
Spaniards continued to arrive in the decades to come, establishing missions and cattle ranches. The ranches were the first in America.
In the early 1800s, Celtic and Irish pioneers arrived and began rounding up Spanish cattle, establishing their own ranching operations.
Descendants of the early pioneers continue ranching in Florida to this day
One of the ranches featured in the video is the Adams Ranch in Ft. Pierce, founded in 1937 by Judge Alto Adams, Sr. and run today by his son Alto "Bud" Adams, Jr., and ranch manager, Buddy Adams (no relation to the owners, yet still considered family). The National Cattlemen's Beef Association chose the Adams Ranch the Ranch of the Century in 1999.
Bud Adams is the father of Lee Adams, who runs the Adams Ranch in Madison County
Customs of some of the early cattlemen are still in force today, such as making deals on a handshake. Some of the cattlemen talk about making deals in the hundreds of thousands of dollars on a simple handshake.
The 90-minute movie was shot on several working ranches in Florida's pristine cattle country If you grew up in farming country like most people in Madison County have or you are just a cowboy or cowgirl at heart, you will enjoy Florida Crackers: The Cattlemen and Cowboys of Florida as much as I did.
The movie is available online at
