In the midst of horric news this past week, which included the Boston Marathon bombing and reports on the trial of Kermit Gosnell, accused of murdering a woman and several babies in a Philadelphia abortion clinic, came some good news. Florida Gov. Rick Scott recognized Tim Tebow as a Great Floridian. According to the statute that established the Great Floridians program, it is designed to recognize and record the achievements of Floridians, living and deceased, who have made major contributions to the progress and welfare of this state. Some may argue that an athlete doesnt deserve the recognition but Tebow is a special kind of athlete and this is coming from a Seminole fan that sat by licking his wounds as he watched Tebow cut up his beloved tribe with surgical precision every year he played. He also walked away with two national championships and one Heisman Trophy, though he undoubtedly deserved at least two and maybe even three. If that doesnt help promote the State of Florida, I dont know what does. Despite his athletic poise and grace, the thing that I admire about Tebow is that he is not ashamed of the gospel of Christ (Romans 1:16). Whether it is wearing Bible verses on his eye black or falling to his knees after a game, a great play or a touchdown pass, Tim exemplies exuberance that every Christian should have. I wish they bottled the stuff and passed it around so I could douse myself in whatever it is. Other people who have won the award in the past include governors, statesmen and businessmen. Former Florida State head football coach Bobby Bowden has also been recognized as a Great Floridian, as has former Florida A&M head football coach Jake Gaither. I will always be a Seminoles fan. It is after all, my alma mater. One day, each November, you will nd me sitting in front of a TV rooting for the Seminoles against their dreaded foes from Hogtown, but Ive learned a few things in my almost 50 years on Earth. First, it is ultimately just a game. Second, I dont play the game and I know my emotions should not be tied to the game as strongly as any player who is out there in the trenches in the midst of the battle. Third, when youre beat, youre beat. Get up, brush the blood and the mud off, shake hands and be friends again. Tim Tebow not only beat us, he destroyed us year after year. Im not going to worry about those losses and if I ever meet Tim, I will proudly shake his hand and say, Youre a great player. Im proud to call you my brother in Christ. Yes, Tebow does deserve the honor of being called a Great Floridian, even at his young age.

Every day, we make money decisions that affect our long term nancial stability. Whether its paying monthly bills, charging on a credit card, saving for a childs college education or purchasing a major appliance, your choices have a long term affect. Financial literacy is an issue that should command our attention because many American are not adequately managing their nances for daily living, healthcare and retirement. National surveys still show the savings rates are low, while the average consumer has three or more credit cards. To complicate the national picture, the mortgage industry has struggled over the past several years; foreclosures are at an all-time high. Currently, Florida is still a state with the high foreclosure rate. All of these issues increase the need for consumer knowledge of managing money and personal nances. Education is the key to help move Americans toward improved spending and savings habits and raise the level of money invested in retirement plans. And, it is never too early to encourage long-term savings for future goals. According the National Endowment for Financial Education, surveys show as few as ten hours of education can inuence the practices and nancial knowledge of young people. Yet, most students have no formal education in managing money. All consumers, regardless of age, need to manage spending, saving and wise use of credit to make decisions about how to manage money and build nancial security. To assist consumers with credit management, the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility, and Disclosure Act was enacted several years ago to make the language of credit contracts more transparent. Creditors are now required to disclose in print, the cost of your balance if you only make the minimum payment. Consumers now have nancial disclosure information in terms that is understandable and can determine the true cost of borrowing money or using any form of credit. So, next month when your credit card bills arrive, pay attention to the information in the charts and come up with a plan to pay more than the minimum payment. Every day, you can make nancial decisions to get the most for your dollar. Learning to spend wisely, save and invest money can be a priority for your family. Take time this month to learn something new about managing money, investing, or your rights as a consumer. Nationally, the University Cooperative Extension System (CES) provides information and educational opportunities on personal nance. Key topics include spend less than you earn, avoid excessive debt, improve credit worthiness, learn to save and invest regularly; and protect your nancial identity. To help you learn more about family nances contact the Madison County Extension Service. The University of Florida Extension/IFAS Extension Madison County is an Equal Opportunity Institution.

He said the people of Massachusetts, were not following Englands executive power. He realized that the kings magistracy was little respected by the people. American Revolution Begins! Lord North was second in command to King George, in England. He admitted that the force of the civil power consisted in the posse comitatus; and when it is considered, said his lordship, that the posse are the very people who have committed all these riots, little obedience to the preservation of the peace is to be expected from them. FINALLY, THE DECISION! The need for a posse, or militia, was always evident in a country as large as ours. A posse is also known as a posse comitatus. It is the sheriff that controls them. Those who feared, like Lord North, the people, always dened the second amendment to the Constitution, as limiting rearms to a militia, The people, who had common sense, read that part of the Bill of Rights as leaving the rights of gun ownership to an individual right. This is an important distinction! A collective right, versus an individual right. That distinction was settled by the U. S. Supreme Court, on November 20, 2007. In the case of District of Columbia vs. Heller, the court ruled gun ownership was an individual right. An INDIVIDUAL Right The people were right. The elite were wrong. The principles of the American Revolution were alive and well. But the decision was won in a 5-to-4 ruling. Push Back! A tide of anger at Washingtons gun-control efforts is sweeping through statehouses from Florida to Washington State, reports the New York Times, of 2/8/2013, taking the form of laws that would let states ignore-or at least resist-any new federal gun restrictions. Lawmakers in at least 15 states have introduced bills that would nullify any new efforts to further restrict access to guns or magazines within their borders. Some call for states to arrest and prosecute federal agents who attempt to enforce new federal rearms regulations. Its about citizens having the ability to be armed to protect themselves in their homes, said Casey Guernsey, a Missouri state representative, whos bill to block any new gun laws has 60 co-sponsors in the House. We arent here to do the bidding of the federal government, he said. Whenever they go out of bounds, its our responsibility to step up. Those who stand up for the 2nd Amendment, are supported by States Rights groups like the Tenth Amendment Center (named for the Constitutional provision that grants power to the States and people), and have allies among the sheriffs who are objecting to more gun laws. Never Safe There is a States Rights spirit alive and well in this country. The Lord Norths of this world need to understand that, We, the People are still here. And were not going away.

The 24 members came from an applicant pool of more than 240 qualied candidates from the Associations 685 member high schools. Finlayson has carried a solid 4.0 GPA throughout his entire high school career. He is active in the community through his youth group at First United Methodist Church of Monticello, and he sings in the choir. He has volunteered and helped during past community Thanksgiving Day dinners, and he has helped with Southern Music Rising in all its previous years. He has been on two mission trips to North Carolina with his youth group where they get to go out to rural communities and help people. Thus far, they have laid mulch at a blueberry farm, and weeded at a local church for the past two years. Jay has gone to two Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) camps, where they learn being a servant, excellence, and integrity. He has also helped with the local FCA Fields of Faith event for the past two years. Jay will going on a mission trip in June to Puerto Rico, with the Athletes In Action program, where he will be going to local communities during the daytime to hold basketball camps for the kids, and they will be playing local teams at nighttime. Im quite excited about that, he said. Jay earned four varsity letters in basketball and cross country, as well as one in football. He was active in student government and participated in Beta Club, and Brain Bowl all four years of high school. He has attended ACA since K-4, and he has competed in three different sports. He has been on the cross country team since the seventh grade. He has been on the varsity baske4tball team since he was in the ninth grade. I went straight from middle school to varsity. That was quite a transition, he added. While on the basketball team he has played a little in every position, including forward, center, and point guard. On the football team, he played in the eighth grade and his senior year. A lot of kids had gotten hurt and the team needed help[, so I went to practices and the rst day in pads, was my rst day in pads for four years. Thats probably the most sore I will ever be in my life, he said. Actually, it was a pretty great experience. I had 10 tackles in my rst game of the season. Unfortunately, it was against Bell and only one of our two losses during the season. After learning that he was named to the FHSAA Academic All-Star Team, Jay said, I was really excited. This is a great honor. I didnt really expect to get it though. They had a real strange prompt question for the essay; if you could be anything in the kitchen, what would you be and why? Jays response to the question, If I could be anything in the kitchen, I would be a dishwasher. Out of the many things in the kitchen to choose from, most are ashier or more glorious than the dishwasher. Yet, when it comes to importance, the dishwasher ranks at the top. While a dishwasher may often be taken for granted and forgotten, it performs the necessary task of providing clean china. Unless one plans to eat from dirty dishes, a dishwasher is essentially a necessity. I strive to be like a dishwasher in life by doing what needs to be done, and doing it without boasting or demanding recognition. Also, a dishwasher continues washing until the dishes are washed and clean. I do not give up on a task, game, problem, or project until it has been nished or resolved. The attitude of a dishwasher is such, and is one I choose to emulate. Whether it is in athletics, during group projects, working on the farm, or even just helping friends as needed, I try to keep the dishwasher mindset: to never give up, never give in, and to do my job without demanding recognition. While there are many ashier and more glorious objects in the kitchen, I select to be like the dishwasher. Upon graduation, Jay will attend Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, GA, to study business. He explained that Covenant is a Division-3 school and did not have athletic scholarships, but he was able to compete for academic scholarships, and won a pretty good scholarship package. I was also selected as an alternate for the main scholarship package. With the package I did receive and several smaller scholarships, it will cover most of my fouryear education. After completing his degree, Jay plans to come back and manage the family farm, and hopefully manage a forestry business as well. Speaking about the possibility of being the recipient of the FHSAA Scholar-Athlete of the Year scholarship as well, he said, I really dont expect to get that. But then again, he didnt really expect to be named to the Academic All-Star Team either. ACA Principal Richard Finlayson added, To be on of only 12 boys in the state selected for this award, we are really proud of Jay, and very happy for him. Jay is the son of Mac and Mary Beth Finlayson of Greenville. The AARP Safe Driving School will be held April 29 at 9 a.m. The cost is $12 for AARP members and $14 for each non-member.

By Kristin Finney Greene Publishing, Inc. Cancer has huge effects on peoples lives from the time they are diagnosed and for the rest of their lives. In May 2007, Margie Evans was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and facing that battle has taught her so many lessons. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphoid tissue. To battle her cancer, Evans had to receive six chemotherapy treatments, at three-week intervals. Evans said of her battle, It affected me more physically then anything. My energy level was very low, my appetite decreased (I lost nearly 70 pounds), I lost all my hair and took two months leave from work. Evans also added, The support that I received from family, friends and community was phenomenal. My husband was my strongest supporter he kept reassuring me that he would be there no matter what. As of December 2012, Evans is in remission. She feels that cancer has taught her many things. One of which is that nothing is impossible with God and that cancer knows no boundaries. Age, gender, income or race, none of that makes a difference to cancer. She also greatly supports the Relay for Life. She said of the Relay for Life organization and the American Cancer Society, I feel that until cancer becomes a reality to you or someone close to you, many people are unaware of how many things that the American cancer society is able to help you with. They provide great support, encouragement, nancial help, and many others aids and programs. Money that is given for research has us closer to a cure! She also wants anyone who is battling cancer to know, Keep your hope up, surround yourself with positive people, cherish your family and friends and NEVER EVER GIVE UP THE ON THE BATTLE.Survivor Spotlight: Margie EvansTeam Spotlight: Tri-County Electric Cooperative Madison Enterprise-Recorder 5A www.greenepublishing.com Friday, April 19, 2013 Photo submitted Margie Evans was diagnosed with NonHodgkins Lymphoma May 2007. As of December 2012, she is in remission. Madisons walkers go around the clock in the battle against cancer during the American Cancer Society Relay For Life. This celebration of life brings numerous groups and individuals concerned about cancer together for a unied effort to ght back. Teams of enthusiastic citizens will gather at the Madison County High School Track for an overnight relay against cancer from 6 p.m. on April 26 until noon on April 27. Relay for Life is a unique fundraising event that allows participants from all walks of life including patients, medical support staff, corporations, civic organizations, churches and community volunteers to join together to ght cancer. Relay For Life reminds us that progress has been made in the ght against cancer and that everyone who participates is making a difference. Relay For Life opens as cancer survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer) walk or wheelchair the first lap. This is an emotional time and sets the stage for the importance of each participants contribution. A festive atmosphere always develops around the track area at these events. As you make new friends and spend time with old ones, the Relay heats up and the camp-out begins. An atmosphere of camaraderie is created with team members entertaining each other: eating, playing games, and, of course, walking for a great cause. Highlighting the evening is the Luminaria Ceremony held after dark to honor cancer survivors and to remember those who have lost the battle against cancer. The luminarias line the track and are left burning throughout the night to remind participants of the incredible importance of their contributions. The American Cancer Society is the nationwide communitybased voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives and diminishing suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy and service.

Madison County Relay For Life Set For April 26 April 27By Kristin Finney Greene Publishing, Inc. Tri-County Electric Cooperative of Madison has been involved with Relay for Life for four years. TCEC became involved with Relay for Life because they always have a desire to be more involved with the community they serve. They have also seen so many lives affected by cancer that they just knew that Relay for Life was one way they could help. This years team captain is Carol Timmons. All of the Tri-County employees help in one way or another with Relay for Life. Some employees help with the event, others donate time, money and talents to help make the event successful. To help gain support and awareness for the Relay for Life, Tri-County has put several articles in their Tri-County Rural Living newsletter. This newsletter is mailed to all of their members. They also do a chicken dinner on the court-house lawn to help get the word out and they do several other fundraisers year-round to keep their members aware of the cause. This year, Tri-Countys booth at the Relay for Life event will be selling corn dogs, French fries, pork skins and their famous fried chicken gizzards. Timmons said of their involvement in Relay for Life, We feel that it is important to be involved with Relay for Life because cancer has and will affect so many of our members and employees that we want to do out part to improve their lives. She also added that the most rewarding part of being involved with Relay for Life is knowing that we are part of helping nd a cure and impacting people for generations.Photo submittedThe Tri-County Electric Cooperative of Madison team is seen during last years Relay for Life.

Outdoors8A Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, April 19, 2013 Celebrate Earth DayThink Global, Act Local By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. Earth Day is as much about learning to see the world around us as it is about learning to protect it and reduce our carbon footprints. Madison County is fortunate in that it is a mostly rural area with an abundance of hiking trails, nature areas and rivers, as well as residents who care about what happens to these natural treasures. Two recent examples of North Florida wildlife, busy at what they do best, are a striking example of the interconnectedness of the natural world and they way their existence benets people, all of which is part of what Earth Day is all about. The pileated woodpecker, with its distinctive red-pointed head, is one of the largest species of woodpeckers in the area, about the size of a crow. Its call, sounding almost like a wild laugh, can be heard for some distance, and has been compared to jungle bird calls heard in old Tarzan movies. Fortunately, this is a very adaptable bird, and has been able to ourish in a habitat ranging from the entire eastern half of the US, arching up into Canada, and coming back down the Pacic Coast in a rough horseshoe shape. However, some of its closest relatives, such as the ivory-billed woodpecker and the imperial woodpecker, are more specialized, less able to adapt to such things as loss of habitat and now are rarely seen. Pileateds feed primarily on tree beetles, carpenter ants and other wood-boring insects. They will even boldly work the base of a dead or dying tree, on or near the ground, where they can lap up a smorgasbord of insects. They will also eat fruits, nuts and berries even poison ivy berries. Occasionally, they have been seen sampling the goods at suettype bird feeders. Woodpeckers hollow out nesting spots in dead trees, or more rarely, in a tall enough pole. A pair of woodpeckers will remain in their territory year-round, but will not re-use a nesting site; old nests become habitats for other bird species and small animals, some of which depend on these old nests for their habitat. Some people dont like having woodpeckers on their property because of the damage they can do to trees, but these birds help keep large populations of tree-boring and wood-boring insects in check; also, while they are not migratory bird, they are protected under the U.S. Migratory Bird Act. Another common sight, especially in the warmer months, is the spiny backed orb weaver, a small, hard-shelled spider with small horns or spikes on its abdomen, and spots on its back. It is sometimes called a crab spider since the spikes make it resemble a tiny crab, but it is not to be confused with the true crab spider that goes out and actively hunts for its prey. Spiders in general are either orb-weavers (constructing webs in a more or less circular grid pattern, usually out in the open) or cobweb weavers (constructing messy-looking webs with no discernable pattern, usually in corners, or out of the way places). Various types of spiny orb weavers (Gasteracantha) are found all over the world, but the ones in this region are Gasteracantha cancriformis, typically white, pale yellow or pale green, with six red or black spikes, and red or black spots on its back. It inhabits the southern U.S. and tends to live at the edges of woodlands or in shrubby gardens, even citrus groves. It feeds on crawling or ying pests that become trapped in its web, including beetles, moths, mosquitoes, whiteies and other small ies. It has venom, but it is generally considered non-toxic to humans, being non-aggressive and often too small to bite through human skin. Although they sometimes build webs in inconvenient places for humans, it is considered a benecial spider and should not be killed if at all possible.

ChurchMadison Enterprise-Recorder 9A www.greenepublishing.com Friday, April 19, 2013 AtMadison First Baptist ChurchSubmitted By Judy PhillipsGuest Columnist If you havent noticed the activity in Madison today, especially around the park, you will soon. Madison 32nd Annual Down Home Days begins tonight. There will be food vendors, crafts, a parade, and lots of fun activities for all ages. The annual PCA Rodeo will be happening tonight and Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. Grab a friend or friends and join the festivities. Remember to share Jesus with those you meet on the street. When the cats away, the mouse will play or do as they please. This well known expression has been a proverb since about 1600 and it is often used to indicate that the person in charge is out and the other folks can/will do as they please. Well, at First Baptist when the pastors away, the deacons must deak. And so they did just that this past Sunday. Billy Washington lled the pulpit on Sunday morning and did an excellent job. For his text he used, James 2:14-19, What does it prot, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, Depart in peace, be warmed and lled, but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it prot? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, You have faith, and I have works. Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believeand tremble! Billy shared that he sought some godly wisdom from one of our wisest members this past week. Bro. Jake said, Speak loud and clear cause some of us are deaf out there, and speak with emphasis like you mean it when you have something important to say. And Billy did just that. He told the story of how a man was hanging by a limb on side of the mountain. When God told him to let go of the branch, the man had to have faith in God, but also needed to let go of the branch to show he had the faith. He explained that works to him means helping someone in need. Live our life as a testimony to who Jesus is. Geoff Hill did equally well for the Sunday night worship time. He continued the Bible study of Thessalonians that Bro. Gabe has begun. We are grateful for all our deacon body and appreciate them. Youth Disciple Now We are still anticipating more of our youth to sign up for the Disciple Now Weekend Retreat, Restraint: Purity. Our youth group will join with Unity Baptist Church youth for an exciting weekend retreat. The group will be divided by age and gender. The Krells have volunteered to be a host home. Contact Ansley Rogers for more information or registration forms. There is a cost of $10. A sign-up sheet is posted on the church secretarys door. Please note that any youth participating in the youth events needs a notarized liability form on le in the church ofce. Mothers Day Breakfast ~ May 12 to be hosted by the combined youth groups: The youth groups have planned a special breakfast in honor of all our mothers. Husbands and children are included in the invitation as well. We ask that you please sign up to let us know how many will be attending. You may sign the sheet on the secretarys ofce door or call the church ofce. The leader for this event is Melanie Parks. Graduate Sunday ~ May 19th We will be honoring our graduates on Sunday, May 19th, during the worship time and would like to include those graduating from high school or college. If you will be graduating from college, please list the school and degree you are receiving. We also need to know how many of your family will attend the luncheon with you. Please call or email this information to us as soon as possible. The staff at First Baptist is ready to serve you in any way they can. The church ofce hours are 9:00 a. m 4:00 p.m., Monday Friday. The ofce phone number is 973-2547 or you can reach the church secretary by email at 1stbaptistofce@gmail.com. Our pastor can be reached at gabekrell@yahoo.com. Jim Carey, our music minister can be reached at muzicman123@gmail.com. We also have a website: madisonfbc.net that is regularly updated. Billy ended his sermon with a challenge. He cited Psalm 40:1-3 as one of his favorite passages and left us with the challenge found in the verses. I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me, And heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth-Praise to our God; Many will see it and fear, And will trust in the LORD. What song will people hear you singing this week end? Church Bulletin BloopersIrving Benson and Jessie Carter were married on October 24 in the church. So ends a friendship that began in their school days. A bean supper will be held on Tuesday evening in the church hall. Music will follow.... At the evening service tonight, the sermon topic will be 'What Is Hell?' Come early and listen to our choir practice. Eight new choir robes are currently needed due to the addition of several new members and to the deterioration of some older ones.

2B Madison Enterprise-Recorder Friday, April 19, 2013 2013 Health & Wellness You want to do what is best for your children. You know about the importance of car seats, baby gates and other ways to keep them safe. But, did you know that one of the best ways to protect your children is to make sure they have all of their vaccinations? Immunizations can save your childs life. Because of advances in medical science, your child can be protected against more diseases than ever before. Some diseases that once injured or killed thousands of children, have been eliminated completely and others are close to extinction primarily due to safe and effective vaccines. One example of the great impact that vaccines can have is the elimination of polio in the United States. Polio was once Americas most-feared disease, causing death and paralysis across the country, but today, thanks to vaccination, there are no reports of polio in the United States. Vaccination is very safe and effective. Vaccines are only given to children after a long and careful review by scientists, doctors, and healthcare professionals. Vaccines will involve some discomfort and may cause pain, redness, or tenderness at the site of injection but this is minimal compared to the pain, discomfort, and trauma of the diseases these vaccines prevent. Serious side effects following vaccination, such as severe allergic reaction, are very rare. The disease-prevention benefits of getting vaccines are much greater than the possible side effects for almost all children. Immunization protects others you care about. Children in the U.S. still get vaccine-preventable diseases. In fact, we have seen resurgences of measles and whooping cough (pertussis) over the past few years. In 2010 the U.S. had over 21,000 cases of whooping cough reported and 26 deaths, most in children younger than 6 months. National Infant Immunization Week April 20-27th ...Story Continued on 5B...

To help keep them safe, it is important that you and your children who are able to get vaccinated are fully immunized. This not only protects your family, but also helps prevent the spread of these diseases to your friends and loved ones. Immunizations can save your family time and money. A child with a vaccinepreventable disease can be denied attendance at schools or daycare facilities. Some vaccine-preventable diseases can result in prolonged disabilities and can take a financial toll because of lost time at work, medical bills or long-term disability care. In contrast, getting vaccinated against these diseases is a good investment and usually covered by insurance. The Vaccines for Children program is a federally funded program that provides vaccines at no cost to children from low-income families. To find out more about the VFC program, visit http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/vfc/ or ask your childs health care professional. Immunization protects future generations. Vaccines have reduced and, in some cases, eliminated many diseases that killed or severely disabled people just a few generations ago. For example, smallpox vaccination eradicated that disease worldwide. Your children dont have to get smallpox shots any more because the disease no longer exists. By vaccinating children against rubella (German measles), the risk that pregnant women will pass this virus on to their fetus or newborn has been dramatically decreased, and birth defects associated with that virus no longer are seen in the United States. If we continue vaccinating now, and vaccinating completely, parents in the future may be able to trust that some diseases of today will no longer be around to harm their children in the future.

Its my first day of retirement and Im loving it, Mattie Hackle said of her first Monday at home. She has several projects lined up around her house that she has already started on, mostly refinishing and reupholstering some furniture, something that has become a hobby of hers lately. Another thing she wants to do is get back into an exercise routine, especially biking along the Four Freedoms Bike Trail that runs from just north of Madison, all the way up past her home in Pinetta. Her bicycle might need new tires first, but spring weather is here, and its a beautiful time of year to get started. She and her husband also have a cabin up in Tennessee, where they will be spending some time in the near future. Originally from Kokomo, Indiana, Mattie has three close friends from her high school days there, and they have stayed in touch over the years. They have tried to meet up now and then to visit, but usually found it difficult to schedule time with everyones work schedules. Now that Mattie is retired and one of her friends is semi-retired, she hopes that scheduling get-togethers at her cabin in Tennessee will be a little easier. She also has two brothers still in Indiana, whom she has seen mostly at family reunions every June, and is looking forward to more family visits. But after working so many years with long-term care at Madison Health and Rehabilitation Center, there are things she will miss: The regular routine of a working day, and the residents and staff members with whom she developed such close ties. She had worked at the Madison Nursing Center since 1979 and gotten to know the residents, their friends and families very well. Leaving them is hard, but My faith is strong in the Lord, that I am leaving them in good hands, she said. Her successor, Sharon Dawkins, is someone she knows very well. When Dawkins was a student at Madison County High School, she volunteered at Madison Nursing Center, eventually becoming Matties assistant. When she left for college, to get her training and certification in Tallahassee, she joked that when Mattie retired, Im coming back to replace you. As it happened, that was exactly the way it worked out. There are also things she wont miss about working, such as the mounds of paperwork and the stress of trying to make everybody happy.

2013 Health & Wellness Madison Enterprise-Recorder Friday, April 19, 2013 7B No matter what you do, someone will always be unhappy. She has also seen some significant changes in the long-term care industry, the most important of which was going from large hospital-like wards to more home-like rooms for the residents. I think that a lot of people still have some misunderstandings about nursing home care, she said. Many still believe that nursing homes are old, dark and dreary places at best, when the reality at Madison Health and Rehab is that the staff works very hard to provide a homelike atmosphere. Patients have choices of activities, religious services, and even menu items. Many residents, of course, are on doctor-ordered diets, but even within those limits, they always have alternate choices, so they can eat diet-permitted foods they like. When it comes to religions, the Center accommodates a variety of faiths: Jehovahs Witnesses, Catholics, Baptists, Methodists and Pentecostals to name a few, and if the residents prefer no religious services at all, they are not required to attend, just as they are not required to participate in any activities unless they want to. We push residents rights really hard, said Mattie. During her last couple of years there, a fishing dock was finally added to a small pond beside the Center, something that has been a real boon to the residents. Even if the ones who dont fish enjoy sitting out on the dock and reminiscing with each other about their lives. Life is made up of memories, said Mattie. Thats what its all about. We decide which ones we want to keep. So youve got to make good memories. MattieHackle Continued from Page 6B Greene Publishing, Inc.

When it comes to training and experience, Dr. Thomas Lawrence, M.D., graduated with highest honors from Wheaton College, and went on to graduate in the top five percent of his class at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. He returned to Galveston to complete his ophthalmology residency, after an internship at the Baylor College of Medicine. He practiced for five years at the St. Lukes Cataract and Laser Surgery Institute in Tarpon Springs, before coming to Tallahassee in 1998. Since then, he has been LASIK and VISX certified, has had many hours of additional training beyond that and performed over 1500 surgeries, making him one of the most experienced eye surgeons in northwest Florida. Today, at the Eye Excellence Clinic in Tallahassee, where he has been for some 11 or 12 years, he provides state-of-the-art eye treatment in his Eyes 4 You program, including LASIK, cataract surgery and glaucoma treatments. We take pressure (measurements) for glaucoma for everyone who comes in, said Dr. Lawrence. Thats how we catch glaucoma, a silent disease. Glaucoma, a condition where pressure builds up in the fluid inside the eyeball, presents no symptoms or eye discomfort whatsoever. Without an eye exam that includes a pressure measurement, the only way a patient would know something is wrong is after he begins losing vision. Increased pressure inside the eye damages the optic nerve and squeezes the tiny blood vessels that feed it. Catching this condition early, and beginning treatment before the nerve sustains damage, is important to preserving the patients vision. Regularly scheduled eye exams, even when there dont seem to be any problems, are vital. Of course, when problems do crop up, its time for an eye exam as well. Blurred or reduced vision, redness, swelling, itching, discomfort, anything weird going on with the eyes, said Lawrence, is reason to have them checked out, before these conditions progress any further. Another thing the Eye Excellence Clinic does for every patient is take laser photos of the optic nerve, allowing the clinic to keep tabs on the nerves condition and monitor any changes over time. Cataracts are another common problem with vision in older adults. The normally clear lens that focuses light onto the retina gradually becomes cloudy with age, causing blurred or distorted vision. ...Story continued on 11B... The Eyes Have It At Dr. Thomas Lawrences Eyes 4 You Program

PAGE 23

2013 Health & Wellness Madison Enterprise-Recorder Friday, April 19, 2013 11B The most effective treatment is to surgically remove the clouded cataract and replace it with a plastic intraocular lens, a procedure that used to require general anesthesia with a hospital stay. Later, the technique had advanced enough to use a local anesthesia injected near the eye, entailing less down time for the patient. Today, with the latest advances in cataract surgery, the Eye Excellence Clinic is now able to make the procedure much less intimidating, using topical anesthetic eye drops that make needle injections unnecessary. However, the patient may be given a sedative if desired, to help him relax during the procedure. The patient is able to resume normal activities within a few hours. The Eye Excellence Clinic serves patients in several surrounding counties, as far away as Live Oak, and although many of the patients tend to be older adults, the Eye Excellence Clinic also provides general ophthalmology care for patients of any age. Also, some eye conditions, such as glaucoma, can occur even in young adults and children. There are several things people can do to take care of their eyes between exams, and one of the most important things Dr. Lawrence recommends is wearing sunglasses. Its never too early to get into the habit of protecting the eyes from ultraviolet radiation. Sun damage can add up over the years, especially where the lens and cornea are concerned, so check the label before you buy, and choose sunglasses that block at least 99 -100 percent of both UVA and UVB rays. Another one of Lawrences recommendations, and one that he follows himself, is taking vitamins and eating plenty of green, leafy vegetables such as collards, mustard and spinach. Proper nutrition and overall health, especially eating enough dark green vegetables in the diet, can offer some protection against some eye conditions such as macular degeneration (a condition in which the central area of the retina deteriorates, resulting in loss of central vision). In fact, studies by the American Macular Degeneration Foundation have shown that diets high in carotenoids, luteins and xeaxanthin (present in red, yellow and dark green fruits and vegetables such as greens, broccoli, squash, corn, grapes, kiwis, oranges, red and green peppers, etc.) can reduce the risk of developing macular degeneration, and since it runs in families, a proper diet that feeds the eyes what they need to stay as healthy as possible is even more important for people whose parents have developed this condition. When it comes to patient care, one of the most important things about the Eye Excellence Clinic is, I think were very personal, said Lawrence. Its a small clinic and we get to know our patients very well, and our staff is outstanding. The Eye Excellence Clinic is located on the east side of Tallahassee, at 3401 Capital Medical Boulevard. For more information on the services offered, visit the clinics website at http://tomlawrencemd.com/ or contact the staff at (850) 942-EYES (3937).

We struggle to make sense of acts like these in within our own value systems how can such terrible things happen to innocent people, including children? What we may not focus on as often, are our own citizens right here in Leon and surrounding counties that have been touched by personal losses and tragedies. They too struggle each and every day, although we may not always notice. They might be our family members, colleagues, classmates of our children, friends, and neighbors.

On a beautiful spring Tuesday, just after Easter, a few pastel plastic egg decorations are still hanging among the white blossoms of a dogwood tree, next to the Madison Health and Rehabilitation Center. Inside, new Activities Director Sharon Lee Dawkins is into her second week on the job, and looking forward to getting some of the residents outside to enjoy the gorgeous weather. Love it, she says enthusiastically of her new job. Love it, love the patients, and Im excited about enhancing their lives here. The first time she came to the center, she was fulfilling volunteer hours required for her tenth-grade peer counseling class. Most of her classmates chose to volunteer at daycare centers, but Dawkins and one other classmate volunteered at the nursing center, where, as it turned out, she found her calling. After her class project was over, she stayed on as a volunteer through her junior and senior years at Madison County High School. After she received her CNA license (Certified Nursing Assistant), she did her clinicals at Madison Health and Rehab. When an opening for an Activities Assistant came along, Mattie Hackle interviewed her and hired her, and for the two or three years she worked there, the Center helped her get her license as an Activities Director. A short time later, as she was getting ready to leave for a job in Tallahassee, she was joking with Mattie Hackle about coming back and taking over when the latter retired. That was 16 years ago. Mattie Hackle retired at the end of March and Sharon Dawkins stepped up to the plate, having come full circle, back to the place where she first fell in love with her chosen career, with Assistant Activities Coordinator Marty Giacomazzi to help her become familiar with the routines and the residents. She has art classes, music groups, baking clubs, bingo sessions, movie times, gardening classes and outdoor strolls, to mention just a few, scheduled throughout the month of April, as well as a birthday party for everybody with birthdays in April.

There are also several community outings scheduled, among them, the Down Home Days parade and a picnic on the lake at Lake Ella in Tallahassee. The residents and staff will actually be a part of the parade, riding in vans and handing out strings of beads and informational brochures, and the Lake Ella Picnic is an annual event for District Ten, where residents and staff of facilities in Madison, Perry, Quincy and Tallahassee get together for an afternoon of food, fun and socializing. Then, there is Volunteer Day when all the volunteers at the center will be treated to a special brunch in their honor, and when Dawkins will have a chance to finally meet all the volunteers who now help out at the center, just as she did 16 years ago.

I am not a doctor nor a scientist, and dont pretend to be, but I think that conventional medicines paradigm of treating disease is problematic, because a great deal of the medical research and the evidence-based medicine resulting from that research relies on a premise that I think might be flawed. Once the premise is corrected, I feel certain that research will become much more conclusive. Currently it seems that all too frequently, for some people a particular medical treatment works well, for others there isnt much change, and for a third group that same treatment makes them feel worse. Usually the way research works is a specific hypothesis is tested on a group of subjects and compared to a control group in order to assess the validity of the hypothesis. The assumption is that the subjects in the study are homogenous in nature that the anatomy, physiology and biochemical processes are identical mouse to mouse or person to person. Nothing could be further from the truth! We clearly look very different from each other and we have different personalities as well. And if we study our insides, we vary enormously. Anatomy books have pages that show variations in organ shape and size, variations in renal arteries and veins, variations in the hepatic portal vein, variations in the arteries of the colon, variations in the pancreatic ducts etc. These variations may have an impact on function and on health. For example, there are many variations as to where the bile and pancreatic ducts enter the duodenum in some people the ducts converge into a single duct mixing their juices before entering the duodenum. Gallstones stuck in the common duct may be particularly problematic in this variation. If someone, anatomically speaking, happens to have narrow arteries, they would be more susceptible to heart disease. More important to the question of drug efficacy and optimal nutrition are the wide differences biochemically between study subjects even if they belong to the same ethnic group, and these are the differences that I think are not considered in most research, and the reason why frequently the results are unconvincing with respect to treating disease. For example, in the average healthy male, the venous platelet count can apparently vary from 150,000 to 690,000 per cubic millimeter. Some types of blood cells are very common in some individuals and are almost absent in others. Acetylcholine levels vary 16 fold in healthy individuals, histamine four fold, pyruvic acid five fold, urea four fold. Pepsin and hydrochloric acid are two extremely important gastric juices, and in a study that looked at 5000 apparently healthy individuals, the amount of pepsin varied from 0 to 4300 units after a test meal! Imagine if they had looked at people with gastrointestinal problems! Minerals such as sodium, potassium, calcium in the gastric juices of healthy individuals vary about 4 fold as well. There are large variations in enzymes, hormones, amino acids, vitamins between healthy people, and saliva and excretion patterns vary widely as well. These biochemical variations result in different metabolic pathways being dominant in different people, meaning that a particular nutrient or drug may have opposite biochemical influences in two individuals with different dominances. Taking it a step further, any adverse symptom or disease can then be the result of opposite biochemical imbalances depending on the metabolism of the individual. Does it not become obvious that with such extreme variation person to person, that basing research on the assumption that we are the same is going to lead to inconclusive or faulty results? To confuse matters further, there are seasonal rhythms to many of the hormones and enzymes etc., so one-time tests are often of little value. Understanding the normal rhythm of the hormone being tested, and then testing the individual frequently enough to see whether the rhythm is off may be the only way to surmise if there is a problem. Does that mean that research to improve human health is futile? Not at all. We need to use and expand the body of research on biochemical differences, and do research on groups of people that are the most similar biochemically. Thankfully this wheel does not need to be re-invented, as metabolic classifications involving the interaction between the autonomic nervous system, the oxidative system and the endocrine system have been used with great success in the field of nutrition. I would bet that if heart disease, cancer, diabetes and other disease research were done on each homogenous metabolic type, far more conclusive answers would appear, and suddenly the medical paradigm would shift from treating the disease to treating the individual based upon the biochemistry of the individual. 14B Madison Enterprise-Recorder Friday, April 19, 2013 2013 Health & Wellness Health & Wellness TipsFrank NathanExecutive Director Lake Park of MadisonDID YOU KNOW.?

PAGE 27

2013 Health & Wellness Madison Enterprise-Recorder Friday, April 19, 2013 15B Call it the battle of blood sugar: Research from the University of Chicago predicts that the number of Americans with diabetes, a disease in which the body doesnt produce insulin or has trouble using it properly, will nearly double by 2034. If that prediction holds true, more than 44 million people will be labeled diabetic. Y ou prob ably know some of the facts about the disease: The two most common forms are Type 1 and Type 2; monitoring blood sugar is the first step in controlling symptoms; and if left untreated, the disease can lead to infections that may require foot amputation. But you may not realize that some information disseminated about diabetes isnt true. For help deciphering fact from the fiction, read the following and talk to your doctor. Myth: Diabetes isnt a very serious disease. Fact: Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States, responsible for more deaths each year than breast cancer and AIDS combined. Diabetes is a chronic disease, says Dr. Rita R. Kalyani, assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Md., and managing editor of the Johns Hopkins Diabetes Guide. While on a day-to-day basis a person with diabetes may only feel symptoms if their glucose is particularly high or low, over time, persistent elevations in blood glucose can lead to serious complications that can be disabling, such as blindness, amputations or dialysis, and result in both decreased quality-of-life and lifespan. Myth: Diabetes is curable. Fact: Unfortunately, neither Type 1 nor Type 2 diabetes is reversible or curable. But that doesnt mean diabetics are destined to a life of pill popping to control their symptoms. Though theyll still technically have the condition, many people who have Type 2 diabetes can return their blood sugars to normal, nondiabetic levels by simply losing weight and adjusting their dietthey may not require any medication at all, says Kelly OConnor, a registered dietitian and diabetes educator at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore. Myth: Only overweight people get diabetes. Fact: Diabetes can affect people of various weights, says Dr. Adrian Vella, endocrinologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Surprisingly many patients who [are obese] will not have diabetes, he says. Being overweight or obese can increase insulin resistance and the subsequent risk of Type 2 diabetes, however, but it is only one risk factor. Normal weight individuals with poor diet and physical inactivity can develop diabetes as well, especially if they have a family history of diabetes, Kalyani says. Myth: Type 2 diabetes is less serious than Type 1. Fact: Type 1 diabetes may seem like the more serious version of the disease because the body has stopped producing insulin altogether. Left untreated for even one day, the resulting uncontrolled build-up of blood sugar can lead to extreme hunger or blurred vision. But because symptoms of Type 2 diabetesthe most common type of diabetes, accounting for up to 90 percent of casesare milder, damage can accumulate over time, increasing the risk for high cholesterol and heart disease. Myth: Its expensive for diabetics to eat the right food. Fact: Diabetics often have higher medical costs than people who dont have the disease because they make additional trips to the doctor and must purchase blood-monitoring supplies. But theres no reason your grocery bill should be significantly higher for choosing a healthful, diabeticfriendly diet. To save money on food, plant a garden; buy in-season whole fruits and vegetables instead of the presliced and packaged variety; opt for bulk-size staples, including oatmeal and nuts; and search the Internet and newspaper for grocery coupons and specials. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has developed healthy food plans that can feed a family of four for as little as $126 per week.
