1 7-Year-Old Needing

SKidney Transplant

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Family and friends of Marcus
Moore, Jr. will be hosting a basket-
ball tournament for the 17-year-old
who suffers from kidney disease.
"I was recently diagnosed with
renal kidney disease," Moore said.
"Before this disease, I was a typi-
cal teenage boy I played football
for the Madison County Cowboys,
which I love, and basketball with
my friends and cousins."
When he found out about the
disease, he was devastated.
"I felt like my life was over,"
Moore said. "I learned that I would
have to be on dialysis for the rest of
my life and I thought I didn't have
anything to live for anymore."
Moore lost 90 percent of his

kidney function and has to go to
dialysis three times a week.
"I didn't think I had the
strength to go through this at such
a young age," he said. "I just want-
ed my life back."
Moore drew power from a high-
er source, however.
"I realized shortly after that, I
needed to call on God in order to be
that typical teenager and play
sports once again," he said, "but
most importantly, to be healthy and
live a long life."
For Moore to have a kidney
transplant, it will be costly and he
and his family are asking for dona-
tions to help with the medical ex-
penses. Family and friends have
many events planned to raise money

Much of the two-hour school

21, went quietly, with only explanatory
discussion of items up for a vote.
Even when the board reached nearly
the last item on its agenda, the list of
nearly two dozen proposed budget cuts
for the school year 2011-2012, the meet-
ing proceeded at first in the usual

manner as members approved about
half the list. They voted unanimously,
or nearly unanimously, to cut 14 teach-
ing and several staff positions already
vacated by retirement or attrition, cut
dean of students positions, cut two
district administrative positions, cut
extra days pay, institute hiring freezes

Holds Budget

By Lynette Norris

The Madison County School Board held its bud-
get workshop meeting Monday evening, June 20, to
discuss a list of possible ways to cut costs and bring
its leftover fund balance back up to the targeted five
percent, or $835,902. Currently, with total incoming
revenues ($17,063,042) plus last year's fund balance
($900,000) and revenue from the Jobs Bill ($491,000),
bringing the total budget for next year to $18,454,042;
however, after projected expenses for the 2011-2012
school year ($18,261,707) are subtracted, the Board
will be left with a balance of only $192,335 - far short

8U All-Star Baseball Team

Headed To State

Submitted by Gina Rutherford
The 8U All Star team traveled
to Lake City this past weekend
and competed in the Cal Rip-
ken North Florida State Qualifier.
Madison's first opponent in
the tournament was Bradford
County, who they defeated 17-0 in
4 innings.
In the second game, Madison
took the field against Suwannee's
All Stars and ended the game in

three innings with an 18-0 score.
The third and final game had
Madison paired with Branford.
The boys ended this game also in
three innings, putting another 17
runs across the plate, while hold-
ing Branford to three scoreless in-
When the dust had settled,
Madison scored 52 runs in three
games, while allowing no runs by
their opponents.

By going undefeated and win-
ning their bracket, Madison has
qualified for a return trip to Palm
Beach Gardens to represent the
Madison County Babe Ruth
League in the State Tournament.
Last year, Madison finished
second in the State and our boys
are hoping to best that this year
by winning the State Title.

The Good German
During the closing days of World War II, as the
Nazis faced sure defeat, they executed Dietrich Boenhof-
Boenhoffer was a theologian who realized, in times
of war, certain actions must be taken. He knew that
Adolf Hitler was evil and he engaged himself in a con-
spiracy to rid the world of the mustachioed dictator.
Boenhoffer could not sit by passively, as many of his fel-
low Germans had done, and watch a madman take con-
trol of his beloved country and attempt to take control of
the world. He knew that when Christians failed to act,
they opened themselves up for many things.
If other Germans had acted earlier, there would
have been no need for Bonhoeffer and his fellow con-
spirators to plot Hitler's assassination. Hitler would nev-
er have risen to power if Christians had not sat by
idlyand watched history which would mark Germany
forever unfold before their blinded eyes.
In England, Prime Minister Winston Churchill had
to unite the British against one common enemy Instead
of just saying that Great Britain was at war against the
Nazis, he said they were at war against Germany Soon,
all Germans were counted in with the Nazis. The British
became unable to discern between a good German and a
Following the war, the scales began to fall slowly
from their eyes. In London, a memorial service was held
for Boenhoffer. English people realized he was both a
good person and a German.
Christians today do not need to sit idly by and let
our freedoms be taken away; neither do we need to en-
gage in an assassination plot like Bonhoeffer did.
Things do not need to proceed that far. We simply need
to exercise our power to vote as Christians; we need to be
involved in activities in the community; we need to con-
trol what our children watch on TV; we need to read our
Bibles and pray and we need to attend a Bible-believing
Don't let evil control our city county state or coun-

.Ile.nh'_ Keep Food Safe This Summer

Summertime and liv-
ing goes outdoors -- it's the
time of year to be casual
with the way we eat and
serve food, often outside

and in unusual places.
Think about it, there is al- Diann Douglas
ways a picnic in the park Guest Col1umnis
or at the beach, barbeques
in the backyard and camp-
ing trips. Bacteria grows
very easily in warmer weather and with warmer tem-
perature and unusual serving spots, your risk for food
borne illness increases drastically during the summer
Hot days call for cool meals; we serve salads, fresh
fruit and vegetables, cold chicken, meat sandwiches.
Since bacteria love warm weather too, prepare and pack
these meals with care. The USDA Food Safety and In-
spection Service suggest the following practices to keep
your food safe this summer.
* Wash your hands before beginning any food prepa-
ration. If you are going to be outdoors and don't have a
water source for hand washing; take along a
hand sanitizer.
* Wash cutting boards, dishes, utensils
and countertops with hot water and soap
after preparing each food
* Rinse fresh fruits
and vegetables, includ-
ing those with skins and
rinds that will not be eat-
en, under cool running
tap water.
* Once food is pre-
pared, don't let it sit out
in warm temperatures
for very long. Either store it
in the refrigerator or pack it
in an insulated cooler. Add enough
ice or ice packs to the cooler to keep
the food at 40�E (The temperature inside your

Recently, as I was
leaving our Rotary Club
meeting here in Madison,
I was asked an interesting
question by a friend of
mine who has a small cor-
porate business. He asked
if borrowing money from
his closely held corpora-
tion would create any
problems with the IRS.
This question, on the
surface, seems quite sim-
ple. In fact, it is very com-
mon to see an
owner/shareholder bor-
row money from his own
business. Or, even in some
cases, loan money to his
own business. Afterall, it's
his business. Why would
anyone, particularly the
IRS, have an issue with
The truth of the mat-
ter is that it can be a very
big issue with the IRS and
in some cases, without
proper planning, it can be
painfully expensive. The
IRS often reviews such
loans to determine if they
are merely disguised cash
withdrawals. For exam-
ple, the IRS may treat an
improperly structured
loan as a dividend, which
would be taxable to you
and not deductible by the
corporation. The result
could be an enormous tax
The IRS generally
asks the following ques-
tions when evaluating a
corporation's loan to one
of its shareholders:
* Does the borrowing
shareholder control the
corporation? The greater
the degree of control, the
more closely the loan will
be scrutinized.
* Did the corporation

* When it's time to eat,
don't let food sit out in the
hot sun for very long.
Choose a shady place to
eat or keep the cooler
close at hand.
Safe Grilling Practices
* Marinate meat, fish
and poultry in the refrig-
erator. Discard the mari-

nade and make a fresh batch for basting or to use on
cooked foods.
* Preheat the grill for 20 to 30 minutes or until the
coals are lightly coated with ash.
* Use a food thermometer to ensure that food reach-
es a safe internal temperature. Poultry must reach a
temperature of 1700 E Ground beef should be cooked to
160 �E Roasts, steaks and other large cuts of beef
should be cooked to at least 1450F (medium rare). Fish
should be opaque and flake easily
* Put grilled food on a clean platter. Don't return it
to the same plate that held the raw food.
SBurn off any cooked-food residue,
and then clean the grill before its next
At Home or On-the-Go
SPicnic tables are busy breeding
grounds for germs. At home, clean the
surface with soap and hot water. Pack
disinfectant wipes to quick-
clean public picnic ta-
Leftovers should
be refrigerated within
two hours after cooking or
serving. Anything left out
longer should be discarded.
SWash hands before and af-

running water, pack a hand gel sani-
tizer or hand-cleaning wipes.

For instance, one of
the biggest abuses is not
paying an appropriate lev-
el of interest or no interest
at all on a demand loan. In
this case, the IRS may im-
pute interest, but a rate of
110%, 120%, or even 130%
of the AFR. To make mat-
ters worse, they may re-
quire the interest to be
included in the sharehold-

The bottom line is
that a shareholder in a cor-
poration can't treat the cor-
poration's business as his
own, even if he's the sole
shareholder. He needs to
separate personal business
and personal transactions
from that of the corpora-
tion's. It's quite obvious
the IRS scrutinizes related
party transactions, partic-
ularly in the case of share-
holder/owner loans.

innocent on the surface,
but if not properly docu-
mented, can bring very un-
expected consequences.

a lump sum payment or
they could include amor-

ent volunteers for yard work at school facilities.
The discussion became more intense when
the matter of privatizing cafeteria and custodial
worker positions arose. George Williams, Presi-
dent of the Madison County Educational Associ-
ation, spoke against the matter, saying that even
if it did save the district some money, "you'll lose
something far more important - that community
As others in the audience protested different
measures, Board Chair Hagan reminded them
that the time for public input was already past;
that time had been at the School Board's budget
workshop held just the previous evening, as well
as a series of town hall meetings before then,
from which the list of budget items had been
gleaned. "Tonight, we're voting on these items,"
she said.
By far the most contentious items on the list
concerned small school administrators and the
cost-saving plan chosen for restructuring the Ex-
cel School.
With the small school administrators, the
measure called for cutting small school adminis-
trators to an eleven-month contract, essentially
docking 24 days pay for the principals of Lee,
Pinetta and Greenville. It passed 3-2, with Hagan
and board members Tina Johnson and Clyde
Alexander voting yes, while Kenny Hall and Bart
Alford voted no. The vote led to a short, heated
exchange between Hagan and Greenville Elemen-
tary Principal Davis Barclay, who questioned
why the board chose to retain a $20,000 activity
bus expense, yet voted to leave Greenville Ele-
mentary without an administrator during its
summer programs. Hagan replied that since Bar-
clay had become the Greenville Elementary prin-
cipal, the school had gone from an "A" rating to
an "F" and was now a "D." Hagan also denied a
statement from boardmember Hallthat her vote
was based on a personal dislike of Barclay, stat-
ing that it was strictly a budget issue.
The Excel School proved to be another hot
button issue with those present. Parents and oth-
er audience members felt that the option chosen
by a 3/2 vote was inadequate for the students'
needs. Sean Golder, Executive Director of Twin
Oaks, who had presented the other non-cho-
senoption of leasing the Excel Building and pro-
viding both teaching and counseling services, the
latter of which could be reimbursed by Medicaid,
asked to leave his offer on the table for future re-
consideration by the board, should the option
they had voted on prove inadequate, because
"these are your at-risk kids...the ones most likely
to end up in a juvenile facility or residential pro-
Hagan declared a ten-minute recess before
coming back to adjourn. With only a few minutes
left for public input, Judy Townsend and Cheryl
Brown Clemons expressed disappointment with
the board's Excel vote for an option that put the
students on a full day rather than a half day, but
provided little to no improvement in the services
they would receive.
"As a mother and a grandmother, I am disap-
pointed in all of you," said Townsend. "You have
thrown our children under the bus."

of its five percent target of $835,902.
The Board had put together a list of budget cut-
ting ideas, gathered from a series of town hall meet-
ings, that ranged from cutting teacher and
administrative positions, to moving Greenville, Pinet-
ta and Lee Elementary students into Madison Central
School, to privatizing custodial and cafeteria services,
to rerouting buses more efficiently.
As the meeting opened for public input, however,
the proposed three-minute limit per speaker quickly
fell by the wayside.
Brody Herring brought up the stipends and sup-
plements paid to directors and administrators for pro-
fessional development or for extra hours spent as part
of the school board's negotiating team with MCEA.
He also asked about performance pay for those admin-
istrators in "A" or "B" schools and questioned why
these could not be cut instead of 14 teachers.
Superintendent Lou Miller explained that perfor-
mance pay was a state requirement, and emphasized
that should the board decide to cut fourteen teaching
positions, it would be handled through retirements, at-
trition and non-recommendations, not through firings.
"I understand that," said Herring. "You're not go-
ing to be going up to teachers and telling them 'You
don't have a job anymore.'" But teachers who leave
and are not replaced are "leaving vacant spots for the's all about the kids," he added, a theme that
was echoed by other speakers as well.
Deloris Jones brought up the question of the
Madison Excel School, a subject that dominated the
rest of the evening.
The board had drawn up several options for re-
structuring the school, including one that called for
contracting 90 percent of the student FTE monies to
Twin Oaks and the rest to the school district, with
Twin Oaks leasing the Excel building from the dis-
trict, providing the students with instructional and
other services. Cheryl Brown Clemons asked about
the possibility of restructuring Excel much like the
old Opportunity Center, as a program within an exist-
ing school, with the students attending full-day instead
of half-day sessions.
Board member Kenny Hall replied that teacher
certification and other requirements had become
more stringent since the days of the old Opportunity
Center, and Miller added that the board hoped to have
Excel continue as its own school.
Additionally, there was some question as to
whether some of the Excel students would be allowed
back into their home schools. Amid discussion of how
much the Madison Central School and Madison High
School would have to restructure in order to accom-
modate students now housed in the Excel facility,
VeEtta Hagan interjected, "school grades are a mess.
They (Excel students) could not bring the school's
grades down any further because they are just a
As the public portion of the meeting drew to a
close, Dr. James Brown took the floor and took up the
theme of "all about the kids," saying that the Excel fa-
cility filled a vital gap as an alternative school, because
without it, some kids would end up without the educa-
tion they needed to survive, costing taxpayers even
more - as much as $250,000 during an average lifetime,
he added, as the time allotted for the public portion of
the meeting ran out and Hagan adjourned the pro-

"For me, Medicare is not a political talking
point. My parents immigrated to the United
States in the late 1950s. They worked hard for
over 40 years to provide their children the chance
to do all the things they themselves could not.
But they never made much money As a result,
they retired with precious little in savings.
Medicare was and is the only way they could ac-
cess health care....
'America needs Medicare. We need it to con-
tinue without any benefit reductions for those
like my mother currently in the system. And we
need it to survive for my generation and my chil-
dren's generation.
"But Medicare is going bankrupt. Anyone
who says it is not is simply lying. And anyone
who is in favor of doing nothing to deal with this
fact is in favor of bankrupting it.
"Medicare will go broke in as little as 9 years.
No one likes this news, but it is the undeniable
truth. And the sooner we begin to deal with it,
the better off we are all going to be.
"My goals are simple. First, I will not support
any plan that changes Medicare for people like
my mother who are currently on the plan. We
cannot ask seniors to go out and get a job to pay
for their health care.
"Second, any solution must solve the prob-
lem. We need to save Medicare, not simply delay
its bankruptcy
'And third, any solution cannot hurt econom-
ic growth. At a time of high unemployment,
Americans cannot afford to pay more taxes.
"I will support any serious plan that accom-
plishes these three things. It does not matter to
me if it comes from a Democrat or Republican.
Saving Medicare is more important than partisan
"House Budget Committee Chairman PAUL
RYAN has offered a plan. I support H. Con. Res. 34
because, right now, it is the only plan out there
that helps save Medicare.
"Democrats oppose this plan. Fine. But, if
they have a better way to save Medicare, what are
they waiting for to show us? What is their plan to
save Medicare? Either show us how Medicare
survives without any changes or show us what
changes you propose we make. Anyone who sup-
ports doing nothing on Medicare is a supporter of
bankrupting Medicare.
"Where is the Senate Democratic plan to save
"Where is President Obama's plan to save
"They have no plan to save Medicare and they
do not plan to offer one. They have decided that
winning their next election is more important
than saving Medicare for my mother and retirees
like her.
"I have been in the Senate just long enough to
be disgusted by the reality that Washington has
too many people who think their personal politi-
cal careers are more important than our coun-
try's future....
"We are running out of time to save Medicare
for our parents and secure it for our children. If
we fail, history will never forgive us." Complete

Leynes, who now
lives in Jacksonville, and

San Jose, Calif., to look
over Leynes' new prize

The type of car

tracks all over the coun-
try, inspecting tracks and
signals, and transporting
maintenance crews, but
the they were rendered
obsolete by the new hy-
rail equipment, trucks
with "drop-down" whe-
els. The new hy-rail
wheels could travel stan-
dard roads and highways
to a section of railroad,
and then "drop down"
the rail wheels that al-
lowed them to travel the
railroad. The hy-rails
saved time, needing no
other vehicles to trans-
port or offload them, and
they eventually replaced
the track cars. Compa-
nies stopped manufac-

turning them about a
decade ago and many
ended up rusting and
disintegrating in junk-
yards and rail yards.
Leynes' friend Boggs
is also a rail car fan, and
a fan in general of any-
thing to do with rail-
roads. Originally from
Dayton, Ohio, he grew
up in railroading family
with grandfathers and
uncles who worked for
the railroad companies.
He also owns a track
car, having purchased
and restored one when
he was still in high
school in 1962. "That
was at least a couple of
years ago," he joked.
Boggs and Leynes
have traveled up and
down the Eastern
Seaboard in rail cars,
and Leynes had been

looking for a rail car for
sale for years. It was dur-
ing a "stunning rail ride
through Canada" in 2005
that he met Zaro, who
would later build "the
finest two-seater rail car
in North America" for

Pact To Present


Your local Rural Area Theater (RAT) is proud to pre-
sent "Red, White, and Tuna," a comedy about small
town life in the south. Tickets are on sale now for the
performances which will run June 23 - 26 at the RAT's
location at 196 S. Range Street, Madison. Besides an ex-
cellent performance by local talent, theater patrons will
be treated to a bar-b-que picnic and have a chance to win
great door prizes donated by local merchants.
The Rural Area Theater opened in February, 2010
and is staffed completely with volunteers who share a
passion for the theatrical arts. All show proceeds are put
back into the company (known as the RATT pact) to
grow future productions. The troupe performs at least
four shows per year, including one children's show.
Many rehearsal hours are spent in preparation for each
performance, and feedback from patrons has been posi-
tive. "I felt just like I was at a Broadway production," and
"you have an awesome little theater" are two examples
of the positive comments received after performances.
Red, White, and Tuna is a sequel to last summer's
smash hit performed at the RAT. The show centers
around the eccentric residents of Tuna, TX (the third
smallest town in the state) as they prepare for the annu-
al July 4 high school reunion. More than fireworks will
pop as the ladies (and
maybe some men) com-
pete for the coveted title of
reunion queen. A host of

as tech coordinator.
Laughs are guaranteed, along with good food, pre-
pared by Cheryl Abercrombie, good music, and good
friends. Make your reservations now by calling 850-673-

Part 4 - Highlights From
the 100 Year History of
the Madison Woman's
Club Through the Eyes of
Past Presidents

By Lynette Norris
Greene Publishing, Inc.
In May of 2011, the
Madison Woman's Club
celebrated their 100th an-
niversary as an ongoing
civic organization in
Madison. This series
takes a look back at some
of the things they have
accomplished during
that time.
Past President Judy
Steen (2000-2002)


Judy Steen presided
over the Madison
Woman's Club during a
two-year time span that
was like no other in the
history of the country for
national and internation-
al events shaking the
country all the way down
to the local level. When
the 2000 Presidential
Election dragged on for
several weeks prior to be-
ing resolved, the whole
country was in an uproar.
At the time, no one could
even imagine what could
top that.
Less than a year lat-
er, the terrorist attacks of
9/11 had all but eclipsed
memories of the con-
tentious election.
In the midst of it all,
the ladies of the Madison
Woman's Club kept quiet-
ly meeting and working

and doing what needed to
be done to help the mem-
bers of their community
who needed a helping
hand or an act or kind-
ness. They reached out to
others in the surround-
ing area as well as help-
ing each other in times of
mourning and need,
sending cards and flow-
ers and visiting the sick
among their members.
They continued the
tradition of planting
memorial trees in honor
of deceased members,
bringing the total at that
time to 105 trees.
It was also during
this time that the handi-
cap ramp was installed at
the Club House, making
it accessible not only to
disabled club members
but also to disabled resi-
dents who attended
events held by other orga-
nizations at the facility
A committee was
formed to work on the
grounds surrounding the
Other charitable pro-
jects included a Woman's
Club team participation
in Relay for Life cancer
survivor awareness pro-
gram. Operation Christ-
mas Child was another
recurring project, with
members gathering to-
gether canned goods and
Christmas gifts for less
fortunate children. The
Hacienda Girls' Ranch, a
shelter for abused and ne-
glected girls was again a
beneficiary, as members
donated gifts and money
for the girls.
They continued their
interest in, and support
of, education. At one of
their meetings, they had
Della Carroll, a woman

who worked with Special Past President
Needs Children from Mrs. PK. Rowell
Kindergarten - Fourth
Grade as a special guest
presenter, talking about
her work. Another guest
speaker at another meet-
ing was Teacher of the
Year for 2001-2002. They
also had the NFCC Stu-
dent of the Year as a

guest speaker and
learned about courses
available for continuing
education at NFCC.
Other people and or-
ganizations in the com-
munity took notice of
the Woman's Club and
their efforts, lauding
them for their work. At
one meeting, the Club
learned that one of their
members had received a
certificate of apprecia-
tion from the Salvation
Army for her work and
dedication to that organi-
At another meeting,
the family of Mrs. Flori-
da Davis donated a
speaker's podium to the
club in her honor. Davis
had been an active mem-
ber of both the Garden
Club and the Woman's
Club, and the podium is
the one both clubs still
use today
All in all, they kept
things together and car-
ried on, making plans for
new yearbooks and hold-
ing membership drives,
and even having a special
presentation/film on the
life and art of Vincent
Van Gogh, a troubled
artist who nevertheless
saw beauty in the world
around him. It was a re-
minder that this same
world holds beauty for us
as well, even during the
darkest times.

There were 70 mem-
bers of the Madison
Woman's Club while Mrs.
PK. Rowell was presi-
dent. Then, as now, they
were concerned with the
problem Madison County
was having with illegal
drugs, and set out to
learn more about it and
what they could do to
help their community
deal with the issue by
inviting law enforcement
officers as guest speakers
on the topic. They were
also involved with rais-
ing funds to help the
Madison County Fire
purchase the "Jaws of
Life," a vital but expen-
sive piece of rescue
equipment used for cut-
ting open smashed vehi-
cles in car accidents so
the victims can be pulled
out and taken to safety
But sometimes, as
the song says, "Girls Just
Wanna Have Fun." Club
ladies showed they knew
how to relax and not take
themselves too seriously
when they put together a
Funny Fashion Show at
their 1983 St. Paddy's Day
Meeting. After recogniz-
ing several important

County who had been in-
vited as special guests,
members and guests
alike kicked back for an
unusual and hilarious
take on a typical fashion
show: pencil skirts cov-
ered with pencils and a
box jackets that were lit-
erally large cardboard
boxes worn as jackets.
On another occasion,
then-Senator Bill Grant
was a guest speaker, ad-
dressing issues that were
coming up that year in
the Florida House of Rep-
resentatives. Grant was
introduced by Kathleen
Burnette, a Club member
who was also Madison
County's Supervisor of
Elections. Burnette also
spoke at the meeting, ex-
plaining the new voting
system Madison County
would be using, as well as
talking about the Florida
State Association of Su-
pervisor of Election's
Scholarship Fund. That
year, the recipient was a
Madison County student,
Chris McFarland.
Five club members
who were also Pink
Ladies were recognized
for over 400 hours of vol-
unteer service and
fundraising efforts on be-
half of the Madison
County Memorial Hospi-
tal, especially with their
"Remembrance Fund,"
established in 1975, that
received donations in re-
membrance of loved ones.
The club donated money
to this fund throughout
the year.
Members also contin-
ued working with their
"adopted daughters" in
the Future Homemakers
of America organization,

helping the girls with pro-
jects that addressed the is-
sues of teenage
pregnancy (Madison
County at that time had
the highest teen pregnan-
cy rate in the state of
Florida). They also host-
ed informational meet-
ings for parents and
students concerning the
drug problem.
Working with the
Madison County Home
Extension Office, they
helped plan the Health
Fair at the Madison Coun-
ty High School.
For Christmas, the
members helped with the
Drive-Through Nativity
by furnishing props and
costumes for the children
who were enacting vari-
ous scenes from the birth
of Christ in the vacant lot
behind First Baptist
Church. For both Christ-
mas and Thanksgiving,
they made baskets of
canned goods and fruits
for needy families.
However, charity
wasn't confined to the hol-
iday season; the club
helped several families
who had lost their homes
to fires by gathering cloth-
ing, food and other basic
necessities for them.
As always, they
helped with numerous
other charities through-
out the year, with door-to-
door collection
campaigns, ticket sales
and fundraising suppers
for the March of Dimes,
Cancer Society, Heart
Fund, Cystic Fibrosis,
United Cerebral Palsy
and Muscular Dystrophy
Then as now, the
women of the Madison
Woman's Club made a

She attended high

Barfield played bas-

almost every day she and
the team would practice
at the college's ball
fields. "I also used to
jump rope and play hop-
scotch. There were a
whole bunch of us who
used to go out there," ex-
plained Barfield.
Growing up,
Barfield stayed busy
helping around the
house also. She helped
to cook dinners for her
and her family. She also
cleaned around her
house by dusting and
mopping the floors
every week.
Some of her hob-
bies included sewing, a
hobby that she still
holds today. "I want to
learn to crotchet, too,"
said Barfield. She en-

things, so many in fact

City of Madison, Florida

2010 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water
and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want
you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are commit
ted to ensuring the quality of your water. The city's water is secured from three wells located around the City. Your water is drawn from the
prestigious Floridan Aquifer and is chlorinated for disinfection purposes then fluoridated for dental health purposes; a sequestering agent is
also added for the purpose of corrosion control.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Mr. Johnny Webb, Water Superintendent for
the City of Madison at (850) 973-5081. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the
second Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall, 321 SW Rutledge St., Madison, FL.
The City of Madison routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regular
tions. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31,
2010. Data obtained before January 1, 2010, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws,
rules, and regulations.
The Department of Environmental Protection has performed a Source Water Assessment on our system in 2009. These assessments
were conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. Four, 4, potential sources of
contamination were identified with moderate susceptibility to city wells. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water As
sessment and Protection Program website at
Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a safe and depend
able water supply we sometimes need to make improvements that will benefit all of our customers. These improvements are sometimes re
flected as rate structure adjustments. Thank you for understanding.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells. As
water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive ma
trial, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage
treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result
from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and
gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture,
urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are
by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come
from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and
gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the USEPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in
water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled
water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking
water is primarily from components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Madison Water Department is responsible for provide
ing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting
for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for
drinking and cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking
water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline Or at http://
All drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The
presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and poten
tial health effects can be obtained by killingg rtic Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people maybe more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons
such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other im
mune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking
water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and
other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the fol
lowing definitions:

Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time
study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic
acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compli
ance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR.
Maximum Contaminant Level orMCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs
as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal orMCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to
health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Maximum residual disinfectant level orMRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that
addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health.
MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.

,i., " ... i.... .. T )or hll. ...... ' I. , it.,... I' _ , weight of analyte to l million parts by weight of the water sample.
,,, . , 'i I.,ll . ..i ! ..t. or Micrograms per liter (fg/) - onepart by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) - measure of the radioactivity in water.

The state allows us to monitor for some contaminants less than once per year because the concentration of these
contaminants does not change frequently. Some of our data, though representative, are more than one year old.

SRWMD Urges Water Conservation As Drought Persists

As drought conditions continue to worsen, the
Suwannee River Water Management District (Dis-
trict) urges all water users to eliminate non-essen-
tial uses of water.
"We had the ninth driest May since 1932, and the
upper Aucilla, Suwannee and Santa Fe basins expe-
rienced rainfall deficits of nearly 25 inches com-
pared to an average year," said Megan
Wetherington, District senior professional engineer.
Several months of below-average rainfall has
led to record-breaking low flows on the upper
Suwannee River, including the Suwannee River at
White Springs with records going back to 1906.
Gages on the upper Santa Fe reported that flow has

Your Guide To

Summer Produce

By Kristin Finney
Greene Publishing, Inc.
While many people rely on grocery stores to get
fruits and vegetables, others turn to local farmers or
farmers markets. What many people do not under-
stand is that fruits and vegetables only offer their
full health benefits when they are in season. If a
fruit or vegetable is not in season, but is being sold
at a grocery store, then there is a large chance that
the nutritional value has been cut almost in half.
In Madison, local farmers can be found almost
everywhere. However, not everyone has time to visit
a farm or a grocery store. For those people, perhaps
at home farming is best.
The first step to growing fresh produce is to un-
derstand what is in season and what isn't. If the pro-
duce a person is trying to grow isn't in season, their
crop's production will be minimal. In North Florida
and South Georgia, during the months of June-Au-
gust, there are numerous crops that will grow well.
Blueberries, cabbage, carrots, celery root, cel-
ery, chiles, corn, eggplant, radishes, raspberries,
tomatillos, tomatoes, zucchini, mandarins, straw-
berries, fava beans, fennel and grapefruit and in sea-
son through the end of June. Cantaloupes, potatoes,
watermelons, peppers, melons and dragon fruits are
in season now, and will remain in season through
Grapes, shelling beans and okra will be coming
into season in August. Oranges and lychee are in
season until August. Mangoes are in season through
September. Basil and jackfruit will be in season un-
til November. Avocados are in season from June un-
til January
Florida is also home to many fruits and vegeta-
bles that can be grown year-round. Those include:
Coconuts, green beans, green onions, guava, leeks,
limes, onions, oregano, papaya, parsley and thyme.
While it is too late to grow fresh produce for this
year, it is not to late to begin planning for next year.
This guide can help future farmers decide what to
grow next summer, but also help non-farmers decide
what to buy right now.
If someone chooses to buy their fresh produce
locally, they can contact one of Madison's many lo-
cal farmers, go to a local organic food market or a lo-
cal farmers market. Some options for local produce
include O'tooles Herb Farm, Agner Farms and
Browning and Sons, Inc. However, there are also
many other places in Madison that sell produce.
There are also many local farms that specialize in
organic meats, which are much healthier than mass
produced meats.
Growing produce at home is beneficial in many
ways. One way is that there will not be as many
added pesticides in personally grown crops as there
are in mass-produced crops. The farmer who grew
the produce will know exactly what went into mak-
ing the final product, unlike when produce is pur-
chased from a grocery store.
Growing fresh produce can also save families
money and several trips to the grocery store. If they
want a salad for supper, they can simply go into
backyard and pick the ingredients. The same goes
for when they want a quick healthy snack.
Fresh fruits and vegetables can also save money
by giving them as gifts. Many different types of pro-
duce can be wrapped up in a large basket and given
as present any time of year. Fresh produce is also ex-
cellent for cooking for crowds because it is easier to
access large quantities of the produce if it is only a
small distance away
Don't wait until your favorite fruits or vegeta-
bles are out of season to begin researching. Now is
the time to begin planning a garden for next year or
to research local farms and decide where to buy
your fresh produce.

ceased. Coastal rivers fell to much below normal af-
ter five months of near-normal flow, and all 16 Dis-
trict-monitored lakes were below their historical
average level.
Groundwater levels fell in 92 percent of moni-
tored wells. Levels in the Santa Fe Basin were near
the 15th percentile for the period of record, meaning
that almost 85 percent of the time they have been
higher than they are now. In the Suwannee River
basin, levels fell to the 22nd percentile.
According to the most recent drought report,
the National Weather Service classified drought
conditions in the Suwannee River basin as severe.
The Florida Division of Forestry estimated the fire
danger for most of the area as high or very high.
The District has taken the following actions to
urge the public to cut back on water use:
Water Shortage Advisory: Declared by the Dis-
trict's Governing Board in December 2010, the adviso-
ry asks all users to voluntarily reduce water
consumption indoors and outdoors until further no-
"The advisory simply calls upon all of us to take
voluntary steps to reduce both indoor and outdoor
water use during times of drought and until condi-
tions recover," said Jon Dinges, District director of
water supply and resource management.
Once drought conditions improve and groundwa-
ter and surfacewater levels rebound, the governing
board may cancel the Water Shortage Advisory Should
conditions worsen, however, the governing board may
impose mandatory water-use restrictions.
Landscape Irrigation Rule: Adopted into Flori-
da Administrative Code in January 2010, the rule re-
quires homeowners, businesses, and others to limit
lawn and landscape watering to two days during
daylight savings time and one day per week during
standard time. Irrigation should not occur between

The District offers the following tips to conserve
indoors and outdoors:
* Fix leaky faucets and toilets, which can waste up
to 100 gallons per day
* Replace older fixtures and appliances with low-
flow, water-saving models.
* Turn off tap while brushing teeth, shaving, or
washing dishes.
* Water lawns and landscapes only one day per
week and not between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
* Use Florida-Friendly LandscapingM.
* Equip hoses with automatic shutoff nozzles.
* Wash vehicles infrequently and only on porous
* Use a broom or blower - not a hose - to clean side-
walks, driveways, parking areas.
* Take shorter showers; staying under 5 minutes
can save 1,000 gallons per month.
* Don't use a toilet as a waste basket.

Farm Bureau Hosts County

Legislative Session

Rep. Leonard Bembry addresses local farmers, ranchers and business leaders.

The local Madison County Farm Bureau recent-
ly sponsored a Post Session County Legislative Ses-
sion at the local Ag Center, for local farmers and
local business leaders and County leaders as well.
Rep. Leonard Bembry attended, as well as the Agri-
cultural liaison from Congressman Steve Souther-
Kevin Kelley of Branford, who works for Con-
gressman Southerland, told the group of several key
National issues facing farmers and ranchers this
coming year. Perhaps the most important issues fac-
ing Florida Farmers during the coming year, is pas-
sage of the National Farm Bill. Even though
Southerland does not represent Madison County,
Kevin is a past employee of Farm Bureau and
knows all about Washington politics.
The highlight of the evening was Rep. Leonard
Bembry, who gave an update from this past Florida
Legislative Session in Tallahassee. Bembry has
been a champion of all Farm Bureau legislative is-
sues, and is a highly respected state legislator of all
County Farm Bureaus all across Florida. As a con-
servative Democrat, he took the lead on practically

all Farm Bureau priority issues, and we are forever
grateful for his leadership as well as his friendship.
This Madison County Farm Bureau Legislative
Meeting has been sponsored by the local Young
Farmer and Rancher Committee for nearly 10 years.
Chairman of this committee is Willie Agner, Jr. was
absent this year due to having back ailments. The
meeting went on as planned with County President
Jeffery Hamrick taking charge. Jeffery is also a lo-
cal Young Farmer.
Perhaps the most important aspect of Farm Bu-
reau is being involved in the State and Federal Leg-
islative Programs. In May, Madison had two
members attend the Annual Field to the Hill Meet-
ing, along with over 80 other Farm Bureau members
from all across the state of Florida. Maria and Jen-
nifer Greene attended and meet with Congressman
Crenshaw, and both of the area's US Senators.
If anyone would like to be involved in the Farm
Bureau Legislative process, all you need do is con-
tact the local Farm Bureau. Farm Bureau is truly
the "Voice of Agriculture", and we are indeed proud
of this designation, added President Hamrick.

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.
