County Commission Passes

Indigent Care Money

Request For Hospital
View video of this meeting online at

By Lynette Norris

Wednesday night, June 29, the Madison County
Commission convened its 6 p.m. meeting in front of
a standing-room-only crowd. Every seat was taken
and nearly a dozen people, including Sheriff Ben
Stewart, who led the opening prayer, stood off to the
side and leaned against the wall.
The Commission was meeting for two reasons:
The first was to pass an emergency measure to be-
gin the process of replacing an old bridge on High-
way 150 (Lovett Road) across the Aucilla River.
The second was to decide whether or not to re-
lease $250,000 a year of the half-cent sales tax to go
to the Madison County Memorial Hospital; the hos-
pital had requested the money to help pay for the
three million a year it provides in indigent care, for
which it was not reimbursed by any state or federal

Goliath and BeBe's
world has an urgent re-
quest for the community
The team at Goliath and
BeBe's uses, on average,
80 pounds of dry dog
food each week. This
means that they are
spending hundreds of
dollars each month to
feed their dogs, and hun-
dreds more to feeds the
other animals that they
care for. There is a seri-
ous need for dry dog food
at Goliath and BeBe's.
They can also use do-
nations of canned dog
food. This is what they
use to give the dogs med-
ication and also to feed
to the older dogs who
cannot chew hard food.
Brands do not matter for
the dog food. There are
drop off points all across
the city of Madison.
They are Madison Vet-
erinarian Hospital, the
Country Store and Har-
There is also a huge
need for hay Due to the
drought, Goliath and
BeBe's is feeding their
horses and other grazing
animals hay. These ani-
mals normally graze the
45-acre property that the
shelter is located on, but
since there has been
minimal rain this sea-
son, there is little grass
for them to eat. Dona-
tions of hay can be made
to Upholds Feed.
If someone wants to
purchase hay or dog food
from Upholds Feed in
honor of Goliath and
BeBe's, all that they need
to do is call Upholds
Feed, give them their
credit card information
and let them know that

the county would go about repairing or replacing
the bridge, how long it would take, and what was in-
volved, the measure passed 5-0.
Discussion then turned to the hospital and the
meeting became a little more intense.
The audience contained several hospital em-
ployees as well as several hospital supporters; at one
point Commission Chair Renetta Parrish asked how
many in the audience were employees of the hospi-
tal and about six people raised their hands. Anoth-
er in the audience asked, "What does that matter
Court Clerk Tim Sanders then explained two op-
tions for refinancing another loan that the county
had almost paid off, which would free up the money
requested by the hospital.
Several members of the public took the podium
to speak out on the issue, both for and against provid-
ing the money Those against the measure primarily

Boards Hold

Meeting in

Lee Town Hall
By Lynette Norris
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The board members of Madison County Hospi-
tal Health Systems, Inc., and the Madison County
Health and Hospital Board held a noon meeting, one
right after the other, at Lee Town Hall, Thursday,
June 23.
While meeting as the first board, Board Chair
Ben Harris opened the meeting with a big round of
"thank you's," especially to Administrative Assis-
tant Susan Yonce, who was attending her final Board
meeting before "passing the torch to Crystal (Lee)."
Harris then discussed his meeting with Emer-
ald Greene of Greene Publishing, Inc., and talked
about the new feature in the Madison County Carri-
er both had agreed upon, "Hot Questions, Hot Top-
ics," in which editor Jacob Bembry would bring a
question from the public to Hospital CEO David
Abercrombie and have him answer it (the first in-
stallment has already run in the June 29 edition of
the Carrier, where Abercrombie answered the ques-
tion as to why the hospital has two boards).
Abercrombie stated that the feature was "an op-
portunity to keep the ball rolling," adding that he
saw it as an educational opportunity for the public
as well as an opportunity for the newspaper to get its
facts straight. "There is so much misunderstanding
out there," he said. "So much the public needs to
Abercrombie's remarks also referenced an earli-
er anecdote related by board member Oliver Bradley
that a member of the public had accused the board
of "hiding out" by holding their meeting in the Lee
Town Hall.
They also discussed doing more advertising,
since many people were unaware that they could get
many procedures done at the hospital as opposed to
driving to Valdosta or Tallahassee. Harris added
that changes in the way Blue Cross Blue Shield
viewed procedures done in a hospital versus an out-
patient facility had led to Blue Cross lowering the re-
quired co-pay, a boon for patients with insurance as
well as for the hospital. "We'll be able to collect in-
surance for those opposed to

Semi Vs. SUV Wreck Snarls Traffic
A semi truck and an SUV collided at the intersection of
Base Street and North Duval Street on Tuesday, June 28.
There is no Florida Highway Patrol report available,
but witnesses said that Dennis Odom (driving the semi)
was in the left hand westbound lane while Christy Roebuck
(driving the SUV) was in the right hand westbound lane.
Odom reportedly did not see Roebuck and made a right
he hit Roebuck's car. Traffic was snarled for 45 minutes - -
while waiting for an FHP trooper to arrive.
FHP was called to work the wreck in the city because

This 2001 Mercury was involved in a wreck and a fire. According to a Florida
Highway Patrol report by Trooper Tom Roderick, the vehicle running off the road
at the 253-mile marker on Interstate 10, the vehicle, driven by Muriel S. Baxley,

Oicmpoints & Opinions

Friday, July 1, 2011



I'll admit when I was a teenager, I hated that
dreaded four-letter word. I was always taught
not to let four-letter words fall from my tongue.
In spite of my parents insisting that they didn't
mean the word "work," I ran from the word. I
hid from the word. I did not dare utter the word.
Most of all, I did not want to do anything that
resembled that word. Yes, I worked hard at not
As I got older, I realized that there was no
escaping that four-letter word. I also uncovered
many benefits that came with it. Having money
was probably the greatest benefit I discovered.
Another benefit is being able to look at what
you've done and see that you have done a job
Some of the jobs that I have worked at in the
past have not been very glamorous. These jobs
have included washing lots that cows have trod
through, leaving manure in the lots; milking
cows; counting baby chicks by hand for up to 14
hours a night; carrying the chicks to broiler
houses when the temperature is 100 degrees out-
side and turned up quite a few notches on the
inside; and deboning chicken breasts. When I
worked in the cattle and poultry business, I was
providing a service for mankind. The cows gave
milk and the chicks grew and were sent to a pro-
cessing plant, eventually making their ways
onto people's kitchen and dining room tables to
be eaten.
I also worked as a radio deejay, which was
another form of service to mankind. I was able
to entertain people and let them sit back and lis-
ten to music for a while each day.
In college, I did work study jobs in some of
the offices. A friendly voice on the phone while
people were trying to work out problems with
classes or getting enrolled (in ye olden days be-
fore computer registration) always seemed to
help my fellow students.
Now, I work as the editor of the newspaper. I
have the title, but there are many other jobs I do
here (and others do also) that are not visible in
my editor's title. Sometimes, I have to typeset.
Sometimes, I answer the phone. Many times, I
have to smooth things over with someone who
calls with a complaint. I have to label papers to
be mailed. I have to accept money for customers
sometimes. These are all part of the word called
"WORK." Sometimes, the job seems overwhelm-
ing but I have a great staff and great employers
who keep me going on.
Another thing that I love about the job is be-
ing able to share my love of Jesus Christ with
others. I get to introduce them to the man from
Galilee. I thank God that I have a job that allows
me to do that.

times of economical challenge and hardship, what
better way to take a break and enjoy your own back-
yard? Not to mention build a stronger bond with
your family members.
As technology becomes a greater part of our
lives, our youth are becoming more and more dis-
connected with nature. Richard Louv, author of Last
Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Na-
ture-Deficit Disorder is a great proponent of helping
our youth re-discover the great outdoors and im-
pressing upon them the importance of environmen-
tal stewardship. He reminds us that "Passion does
not arrive on videotape or on a CD. Passion is per-
sonal. Passion is lifted from the earth itself by the
muddy hands of the young, it travels along grass-
stained sleeves to the heart. If we are going to save
environmentalism and the environment, we must
also save an endangered indicator species: the child
in nature."1 Louv goes as far as to say, "The woods
were my Ritalin. Nature calmed me, focused me, and
yet excited my senses."1
Most of us grew up playing outside from dawn
until dusk (as long as our chores were done). We let
our imaginations run wild and become the core
source of our entertainment. According to a study

conducted by Indiana
University East, today's
youth spend enough
time in front of the tele-
vision to complete a col-
lege the time
they reach Kinder-
garten!2 Does anyone

else find this appalling?
Rekindle your love of nature and form an un-
breakable bond with your children by helping them
discover the wonders of their own backyard. Pitch a
tent, grab the sleeping bags and your favorite camp
stories and songs, and start the campfire! PS.-
Don't forget the S'mores!!

The Rural Area The-
ater (RAT) welcomed the
Independence Day holi-
day in a little early this
year with their side-
splitting performance of
Red, White and Tuna.
Snickers, guffaws
and outright laughter
filled the small theater
as the troupe presented
the play
Justin Webb per-
formed the parts of
Arlis, Didi, Petey, Stan-
ley, Vera and Leonard.
Donn Smith played
the parts of Thurston,
Elmer, Bertha, Joe Bob
and R.R.
Alberto Rosalio por-
trayed Pearl, Rev. Spikes
and Garland.
Judie Baldwin and
Jessica Webb played the
parts of Helen and Inita,
who run the Hot to Trot
Catering Service and
manage to accidentally
give everyone in town
food poisoning.
In the play, the small

town of Tuna, which is
supposed to be the sec-
ond smallest town in
Texas, is planning their
4th of July holiday Vera
Carp is set to win the ti-
tle of Reunion Queen
when Joe Bob swishes in
and gets the crown while
Vera is stuck in a car
with Pearl.
The play was direct-
ed by Jessica Webb, who
deserves a big hand, as
do all the actors, espe-
cially the three men who
had the ominous task of
playing so many differ-
ent roles.
Cheryl Abercrombie
prepared an excellent
barbecue picnic. The
potato salad was deli-
cious and did not poison
the audience, like the

fine job as the costume

.noted what was referred to as a lack of accountabil-
ity or transparency of the two-board hospital sys-
tem, and questioned where the tax money was going
and how it was being spent. Those for the measure
spoke of Madison hospital being the only hospital in
the state that was required to provide indigent care,
yet receive no help with the expense other than
$35,000 already mandated by the state.
After several people had spoken, the board dis-
cussed whether to vote on the matter that night or
extended the discussion to two more board meetings
that had been advertised. Board member Roy Ellis
was ready to take action, however, and made a mo-
tion that the board pass the second of two options
explained earlier and the money be released to the
Hospital. Wayne Vickers seconded the motion. The
motion passed with Ellis, Vickers and Hamrick vot-
ing yes; Parrish and Board member Alfred Martin
voted against it.

Hospital Boards

Medicare and Medicaid, where we lose money"
In addition to Medicare and Medicaid, indigent
care the hospital provides is another financial problem
the board wants to discuss with the county commis-
sioners at the next County Commission meeting.
There is a possibility that part of the one-cent sales tax
could help alleviat at least some of the indigent care
deficit by at least $250,000 a year, if the Commission
votes in favor of it. If it passes, said Abercrombie, "it
will be the first time anybody outside the hospital has
acknowledged that indigent care is a huge problem
that needs to be addressed rather than left for the hos-
pital to deal with."
Later, during the second meeting, the board also
discussed fundraising efforts, but decided that the
sheer amount of funds that needed to be raised coupled
with board members' relative inexperience with
fundraising of such magnitude meant that this was
probably something a professional fundraiser organi-
zation should handle.
Howard Phillips proposed renaming the hospital
for when the new facility was completed, and Annette
Johnson suggested holding a contest to have Madison
County residents to come up with a new name. Sug-
gestions for prizes included a cash prize with each
board member personally contributing a portion of the
prize money, or a collection of gift cards donated by lo-
cal merchants. Other ideas included getting schools in-
volved by having each class of students come up with
names; the winners would get an ice cream social, piz-
za party or a special field trip, with the cost split among
individual board members. When the final details have
been ironed out, the board will announce the dates the
contest will run and how people can submit their en-
While on the subject of names, several board mem-
bers wanted to named at least one wing or some other
segment within the hospital after Charlie Moore, who
had been at the forefront of the new hospital effort
since 1999.
Meeting as the corporate board, Madison County
Hospital Health Systems, Inc., the board members not-
ed improvement in the "swing bed" numbers and were
pleased with the higher volume of patients using the
endoscopy program now the procedure was being of-
fered every other week instead of weekly Abercrombie
noted that "it might be a pretty good fiscal year coming
However, the finances still weren't good enough for
the board to hire an internist who had expressed inter-
est in relocating from Tallahassee to a rural area like
Madison. Abercombie and others expressed regret at
not being about to afford the doctor yet, but hoped that
they could at some point in the near future.

A Mighty

Colin Kelley, Jr., when 17, wrote a remark-
able essay on "Backbone and Courage" and
delivered it before the P-T-A, as carried in the
Madison Enterprise Recorder, January 22,
1932, which follows:
"The citizen I most admire has four
salient characteristics, which if allowed to
come to the front in everybody, would make
us all ideal citizens. I say allowed to come to
the front because I personally think that
everyone of us possesses them but because
some other quality or qualities overshadows
them they are not given an opportunity for
full development.
"The first quality of the four in Kind-
heartedness. This includes pleasantness, so-
ciability and obligingness. Unless this
person is pleasant, sociable and obliging he is
not a good citizen. For to be a good citizen
one must mix with his or her fellow citizens
and they not only won't be inclined to do this
but their fellow citizens won't want them to
be around unless they are pleasant, sociable
and obliging.
"The second of these qualities is Good
Character. Let us consider the important
characteristics of good character. Good char-
acter not only means honesty, truthfulness
and the like, but it also embodies the golden
rule, which is but honesty from a different
angle. One may be honest in money matters
and also with his time but may be destroying
his neighbors property in an unintentional
manner. The good citizen is careful not to do
"Next along the line of major characteris-
tics comes that of Good Business Judgment.
Without this a citizen has no way of making
money to put in his community enterprises.
Don't misunderstand me. I don't mean that to
be a good citizen one must have money or a
big business. But with no business sense he
would be a failure and failures are setbacks
rather than aids to any community.
"Now last but not least by any means is
that essential and lacking characteristic in so
many citizens today. That of Courage.
Courage in business, courage in social af-
fairs, (and needed of course,) courage in reli-
gious affairs. The courage to say yes or no,
whichever your better judgment and con-
science dictates at no matter what cost to
your own interests. The citizen I most ad-
mire has the backbone and courage to face a
hostile crowd or even public sentiment and
do what he thinks is right. How many men or
women or boys or girls have we in this land of
ours who would do this? How many real hon-
est-to-goodness good citizens have we? While
courage is not the only essential quality of a
good citizen it is by far one of the most im-
portant. Without it no citizen can do the
most for his community.
"In closing let me say that while many of
us have seen many people who at a glance
seem to be good citizens would they stand
close inspection? The citizen I most admire
will stand the closest inspection."

Seniors Listen To Music And

Learn About Diabetes Management

By Lynette Norris
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Regina Hayes of Amedisys was a few minutes late
getting to her presentation at the Madison Senior Cen-
ter, but not to worry; while the troops waited, Robert
McColskey entertained everyone by playing some
tunes on a homemade banjo.
-^ "I made it out of a
cake pan," he said, turn-
Sing it around to show the
back. "And it never goes
- out of tune."
McColskey has never
had any music lessons in
his life, nor has he had
any training in making
musical instruments, yet,
"I made a bunch of harps
one time," he said, hold-
ing his hand about three
or so feet above the floor.

with the aluminum cake About a dozen people

cular wooden frame ny corner room of the
Madison Senior Center,
and were treated to the impromptu serenade before
Hayes arrived to give her PowerPoint presentation to
the group - an overview of diabetes as not only a blood
sugar problem, but also a heart, eye, kidney and nerve
"Diabetes affects every part of your body," said
Hayes, which is why management of the condition is
so important. The two main things to remember when
managing this disease, are numbers (what your target
numbers are supposed to be) and what Hayes called
"the ABCs of diabetes management."
When it comes to numbers, patients need to moni-

tor their weight, glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure
levels, and they need to know what their target num-
bers are for each.
The ABC's are "A" for the A1C test, a lab workup
that gives a bigger, more complete overview of glucose
levels than the finger-stick test. "B" is for blood pres-
sure, and for most individuals, the target number is
130/80. "C" is cholesterol, with a target number of 100
or less.
If that seems like a lot of numbers and tests to re-
member, recording everything in a journal and track-
ing the measurements over time go a long way to
helping get things under control. Also, having a set
routine of eating meals at the same time each day, tak-
ing medications at the same time each day, and getting
a consistent amount of exercise each day is a vital part
of blood sugar management.
Exercise is also important for keeping weight
within the target range determined by your doctor, and
Hayes understands that people sometimes get busy and
run out time for their usual walk or workout. Howev-
er, people shouldn't take the all-or-nothing view of dai-
ly exercise, because "any amount of exercise is better
than no exercise at all," she said, demonstrating some
simple leg stretching and lifting exercises people could
do in five minutes while seated at a desk or work table.
Routine and consistency are important because
several things can cause glucose levels to fluctuate;
eating more than usual, eating foods with higher sug-
ar levels, less physical activity, stress, sickness and cer-
tain medications can cause higher blood sugar levels,
while eating less or skipping meals, along with higher
levels of physical activity, or taking too much diabetes
medication can cause these levels to drop.
Also, a routine of regularly scheduled examina-
tions are vital for keeping the body healthy and avoid-
ing the other complications associated with diabetes.
Having a complete foot exam every six months is im-
portant to check for neuropathy and infection. Dental
exams every year are important, because tooth infec-
tions can affect glucose levels. Eye exams, complete
with the dilated eye test, are needed to check for glau-
In the area of diet, Hayes says she understands

Southerners love of Southern cooking, but managing
diabetes doesn't mean giving up everything you love
to eat. A pot of greens cooked with a well-seasoned,
well-smoked turkey thigh tastes the same as greens
cooked with a hamhock, and pork can be marinated
in vinegar before cooking and eaten in moderation.
Mrs. Dash, or other seasonings, can be substituted for
salt, and tea can be sweetened with honey instead of

Finally, certain individuals, such as those from an

Couponing Class
By Kristin Finney
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On July 12 at 6:30 p.m., Joyce Bethea will be
holding an educational meeting to teach people
about couponing. Couponing is a fad that is sweep-
ing the nation, with shows such as Extreme Coupon-
ing growing more and more interest. While many
people use a few coupons here or there, this class
will teach shoppers how to use a lot of coupons to
save a lot of money
The class will be held at Lee City Hall. There is
no admission cost or any payments that attendees
will have to pay. Bethea will be giving away binders
and dividers to a few winners to help them organize
their coupons.
"It's sort of like Couponing 101. We just are get-
ting people interested who don't already coupon,"
explained Bethea. Those who attend will also get
some handouts. Several of the handouts will be the
coupon polices for the major stores in Madison. "I
would love to see people shop more in Madison and
keep money local."
She will also teach those who attend how to go to
websites online and print out coupons, as well as ex-
plain which sites not to go to. She will also explain
how you can double coupons using both manufac-
terors and store coupons.
Everyone is welcome to join Bethea on this
night to learn more about couponing and to help
save their family money when grocery shopping.

Layla Peavey is seen
By Kristin Finney
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Layla June Peavey is
the daughter of Dana and
Jonathan Peavey Since
she was 10 months old,
Layla has participated in
almost 20 pageants, and
has won nearly 10 titles.
While some may think
this means she has spent
several years in the cir-
cuit, that isn't the case
with Layla. Layla is only
two years old.
One look at Layla can
explain the amount of
winning she has done.
Her blonde hair and
sassy smile could make
anyone's heart melt.

However, what truly sets
Layla apart from the rest
is her natural desire to
entertain people.
Dana said of her
daughter, "When she gets
up on stage, you never
know what she is going to
do." Some of her most
popular poses include the
"Shirley Temple," "Sleep-
ing Beauty," a "sassy
walk" and her "surprise"
The Peavey parents
have never forced Layla
to be in pageants. "She
enjoys them so much.

At two years old, Lay-
la has already been fea-
tured in Pageantry
Magazine. She will also
be seen on an upcoming
episode of Toddlers and
Tiaras, for her perfor-
mance in the Sugar Plum
Fairy pageant. Layla's
footage from the episode
was also seen on Good
Morning America as a
highlight to the season
premier. She has also
been featured in several
newspapers, both locally
and statewide.
Layla has competed
in several local pageants
including Tiny Miss
Madison and Infant Miss
Madison. She also com-
petes in Valdosta, Cordell
and Panama City Layla
also took home fifth place
in her first nation
pageant, Orlando Citrus,
where she competed for
Little Miss Citrus.
Michael Galones, host of
the show Little Miss Per-
fect on WeTV, put on the
Orlando Citrus pageant.
While children in
pageants are often given
a stigma, the Peavey fam-
ily does not fit into that
category Dana explained,
"Layla loves doing it. If
she didn't enjoy it, we
wouldn't want her to do
it. For right now, it is fun
to her. As soon as it stops
being fun, she will stop
doing pageants. I don't
want pageants to be a job

onto their kids for not do-
ing this pose or that face
on stage. That really
makes me mad, because
at that point it isn't being
done for the kids; it's for
the parents."
As for funny things
that have happened on
stage, "We are in the mid-
dle of potty training. Lay-
la never acts out on stage
or makes a fuss. But on
this particular day she
went out on stage with
her daddy and started to
panic. We could not fig-
ure out what was going
on. Once she got off
stage, she said 'I have to
go.' Lesson learned; she
needs to use the bath-
room before going on
Layla is the second
youngest of four chil-
dren. She has two twin
older sisters, Rachael and
Nadine, who are seven
years old. She also has
one younger sister, Pep-
per Lynn, who is one year
old. "At home she is sur-

rounded by girls and girly
things. She loves any-
thing that sparkles and
she loves pink. I think
that there is now this re-
verse sexism that if a girl
does anything overtly
girly then she is stigma-
tized. If a boy goes out
and shoots an animal
with a gun or dresses up
in camo, that is fine. But if
a girl dresses up in a lot of
pink or gets all dolled up,
then something is wrong.
It isn't fair," said Dana

The Town of Greenville, Florida is considering applying to the Florida Department
of Community Affairs (DCA) for a Small Cities Community Development Block Grant
(CDBG) of up to $600,000. These funds must be used for one of the following

1. To benefit low and moderate income persons; or
2. To aid in the prevention or elimination of slums/blight; or

available to meet such needs.

The category of activities for which these funds may be used are in the areas of
housing, neighborhood revitalization, commercial revitalization, and economic
development and including such improvement activities as acquisition of real property,
loans to private-for-profit businesses, purchase of machinery and equipment,
construction of infrastructure, rehabilitation of houses and commercial buildings, and
energy conservation. Additional information regarding the range of activities that may
be undertaken will be provided at the public hearing.
For each activity that is proposed, at least 70% of the funds must benefit low and
moderate income persons.

Agriculture Secretary Vilsack And Assistant Attorney General West Announce
Process To Resolve Discrimination Claims Of Hispanic And Women Farmers

Obama Administration's Efforts Will Bring Finality to Longstanding Claims of Discrimination in USDA Program Delivery

As part of continued efforts to close the chapter on
allegations that discrimination occurred at USDA in
past decades, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and
Assistant Attorney General Tony West announced the
establishment of a process to resolve the claims of His-
panic and women farmers and ranchers who assert
that they were discriminated against when seeking
USDA farm loans.
"The Obama Administration has made it a priori-
ty to resolve all claims of past discrimination at USDA,
and we are committed to closing this sad chapter in
USDA's history," said Vilsack. "Hispanic and women
farmers and ranchers who allege past discrimination
can now come forward to participate in a claims
process in which they have the opportunity to receive
"Under the resolution announced today, USDA and
Hispanic and women farmers will be able to move for-
ward and focus on the future," said Tony West, Assis-
tant Attorney General for the Civil Division of the
Department of Justice. "The administrative process
being established will give Hispanic and women farm-
ers who believe they suffered discrimination the
chance to have their claims heard."
The claims process offers a streamlined alterna-
tive to litigation and provides at least $1.33 billion in

FWC Supports

'Operation Dry Water'

For 3rd Year
Last year, 17 people died
from boating accidents re-
lated to alcohol and drug
use in Florida.
'Alcohol- and drug-
related boating acci- -
dents are preventable,"
said Capt. Tom Shipp, of
the FWC's Boating and Wa-
terways Section. "Even one
death is too many"
That is why law enforcement agencies around
the state and country are participating in "Opera-
tion Dry Water" this weekend. This nationwide pub-
lic-education effort is designed to prevent
alcohol-related accidents and fatalities. FWC offi-
cers, along with local law enforcement and the U.S.
Coast Guard, will crack down on boating under the
influence (BUI) violations.
"While our officers always look for BUIs," Shipp
said, "this weekend, they are making a special effort
to stop this dangerous activity"
2009 was the inaugural year for this effort, and
the program's effectiveness made repeating it
worthwhile. Last year, agencies in all 50 states and
six U.S. territories participated, interacting with
more than 60,000 boaters and taking 322 impaired
operators off the water before they could kill or in-
jure themselves or someone else. The FWC alone ar-
rested 12 boaters for BUI.
"We know that increased officer effort reduces
boating accidents and saves lives. Saving lives is
what 'Operation Dry Water' is really all about,"
Shipp said.
The FWC reminds boaters to be careful this
weekend. Boaters who have had too much to drink
or who are impaired by drugs are a great danger to
the boating public.
"Being under the influence of alcohol or drugs
impairs a boat operator's vision and reaction time,"
Shipp said. "Sun, wind, fatigue and other conditions
can intensify the effects alcohol or drugs have on a
Intoxicated boaters are also susceptible to in-
juries or falling overboard because of impaired co-
ordination and balance.
"If you're caught boating under the influence,
you may be fined and jailed, your boat may be seized,
and you could lose your boating privileges," Shipp
said. "But most importantly, you are risking your
life, the lives of your passengers and the lives of oth-
er people out on the water."
The FWC reminds boaters that they are respon-
sible for making decisions that keep themselves and
others safe.
"We want everyone to have a great time and stay
safe on the water," Shipp said. "Carelessly choosing
to operate a boat while impaired is a decision that
can result in a tragic ending to an otherwise won-
derful day on the water."

compensation, plus up to $160 million in farm debt re-
lief, to eligible Hispanic and women farmers and
ranchers. This announcement follows the Obama Ad-
ministration's settlement of longstanding litigation
brought by African American farmers and Native
American farmers.
The program announced today provides up to
$50,000 for each Hispanic or woman farmer who can
show that USDA denied them a loan or loan servicing
for discriminatory reasons for certain time periods be-
tween 1981 and 2000. Hispanic or female farmers who
provide additional proof and meet other requirements
can receive a $50,000 reward. Successful claimants are
also eligible for funds to pay the taxes on their awards
and for forgiveness of certain existing USDA loans.
There are no filing fees or other costs to claimants to
participate in the program.
Participation is voluntary, and individuals who opt
not to participate are not precluded by the program
from filing a complaint in court.
In conjunction with this announcement, USDA is
launching an outreach effort to potential claimants
that will include a call center for farmers and ranchers,
a website, public service announcements, and in-per-
son meetings around the country Individuals interest-
ed in participating in the claims process may register

Florida black bass grand slam fever
Jim Walker of Brooksville took less than six
months to complete the Florida black bass grand
slam, and went one better.
Although spring and summer are baseball sea-
son for many Americans to whom a grand slam
is that glorious occasion of hitting a home run
with the bases loaded, many will marvel more at
Walker's stunning and fun accomplishment. Even
though baseball is touted as our national pastime,
anglers outnumber baseball players many times
over. (Seventeen percent of Americans age 6 or older
fish, and 5 percent play baseball, according to the
Outdoor Recreation Foundation 2010 Participation
"I was inspired by an article in 'Bassmaster' maga-
zine and made it my 2011 New Year's resolution to
catch all the Florida black bass species this year,"
Walker said. Florida has four of the nine black bass
species that make up the BASS Slam (BassMaster.
com/Slam). Collectively, bass are the most popular
sport fishes in North America. The Florida large-
mouth is the largest and most popular of all, but
its smaller cousins provide great fishing as well.
Completing the slam requires a commitment to
travel, careful research and a high level of skill.
Because of the immense popularity of black bass
and their potential to contribute to the ecologi-
cal, economic and social well-being of Florida, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) on June 9 approved a long-term management
plan (see to ensure anglers
worldwide will recognize Florida as the undisputed
bass fishing capital of the world. Among the many
action items in the new plan is the idea of promot-
ing the Florida black bass grand slam, which can
inspire anglers to seek out new opportunities and
emphasize the critical need for habitat management
and conservation to keep these fisheries viable.
Walker's story epitomizes all that the FWC hopes
to encourage in anglers. His quest began April 2

USDA cannot provide legal advice to potential
claimants. Persons seeking legal advice may contact a
lawyer or other legal services provider.
Under Secretary Vilsack's leadership, USDA is ad-
dressing civil rights complaints that go back decades,
and today's announcement is another major step to-
wards achieving that goal. USDA is committed to re-
solving allegations of past discrimination and
ushering in "a new era of civil rights" for the Depart-
ment. In February 2010, the Secretary announced the
Pigford II settlement with African American farmers,
and in October 2010, he announced the Keepseagle set-
tlement with Native American farmers. Meanwhile,
Secretary Vilsack continues to advocate for resolution
of all remaining claims of past discrimination against

with a trip to Oleno State Park on the Santa Fe
River, accompanied by his wife, Nancy, and their
4-year-old son, Jack. While fishing there in a rented
canoe, he caught both a Suwannee bass, with its
beautiful purplish colors along the lateral line, and
a Florida largemouth.
Walker next took on the shoal bass. After research-
ing the species on and else-
where, he decided that the upper Chipola was the
best place to go. He loaded his family and took them
to Florida Caverns State Park. On the way, he tried
fishing from shore and was rewarded with a beauti-
ful shoal bass from the Chipola near County Road
278 (Peacock Bridge Road). He described this as his
favorite catch, as it slammed a finesse worm and
came 2 feet out of the water, giving them all a thrill.
It is also a beautiful fish, with tiger stripes along its
cheeks, an orange tint and bright red eyes. By the
end of April, he had three of the four Florida black
basses to his credit.
Needing only the spotted bass, and wanting the
best (most recent) information available, he con-
tacted the FWC. I had the good fortune of taking
his call and enjoyed a delightful conversation with
this avid angler, conservationist and family man.
Enthralled by his story, I put him in touch with one
of our regional offices, where Katie Woodside and
Matt Wegener provided him with the information he
In his words, "Some great folks there shared with
me great (and beautiful) locations to find my last
species. This trip actually began on my birthday
(May 26) and resulted with the accomplishment of
my Florida bass slam."
He caught a qualifying spotted bass at the
Hightower Springs Landing on Holmes Creek, just
by walking the bank with his family and casting a
finesse worm.
It must have been a memorable birthday and
Memorial Day weekend for him and his family.
That sounds like enough to make a great story
and cover a half-year of fishing, but the Walkers had
more to offer. Nancy, Jim's wife, is one fish shy of
her Florida slam as well.
Jim has his own new goal. Now he wants to catch
other species of bass in Florida, and he can already
scratch the nonnative peacock bass off his list.

Madison Enterprise-Recorder 9

Guy Hall was born in Madison,
and although he left for a while, he has
found his way back to his roots.
He did not go to school, much of
his childhood was spent working or
doing things for his family His grand-
mother died when Hall was only eight
years old, and that took a major toll on
his childhood.
Hall recalls a Madison quite dif-
ferent from present day. There was
very little to do other than play with
friends, work or hunt. But he made the
best of the situation.
During his childhood he spent his
days working and running through
the swamps. "I spent a lot of time in
the swamps. I was almost always there
when I wasn't working," he stated. "I
liked being alone and not being
around other people."
He enjoyed hunting for rabbits
and squirrels. He even recalled hunt-

ing a "swamp rat." He ate everything
that he killed, including the "swamp
rat." He recalled, "It tasted real good,
like squirrel."
Though he didn't spend his after-
noons hanging out with friends or
playing ball, Hall had plenty to keep
him busy "I worked since I was six
years old," he explained. He worked in
the fields and on farms of some local
Hall served in the Army during
World War II and following the war
moved to New York for a while. His
time in New York did not dampen his
desire for the small town though, be-
cause he returned home to Madison af-
ter a few years.
Later in life, after returning from
New York, he worked as a junk man.
He and his wife spent the rest of their
lives in Madison. While his daily diet
now doesn't consist of much squirrel
or "swamp rat," he hasn't forgotten
his roots or his youth in Madison.
