Our 148th Year, Number 50 www.greenepublishing.com Since 1865, T elling It Like It Is And Defending The Peasant's Right T o Know Index 1 Section, 10 Pages Local Weather Veiwpoints2 From Page One3 Around Madison 4-5 Farm6 Church/History7 School8 Classieds9 Legals9Friday, August 16, 2013 Madison, Florida By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. Grand Street is anything but grand, Greenville resident Kimberly Thomas told the Greenville Town Council at its August meeting. In fact, in its current condition, it could affect the safety of tourists and visitors to the area. Veering off Highway 90 (going east) and paralleling the highway through the business section and residential section of Greenville, the little black-topped road passes two churches (New Zion Missionary Baptist and Allen Chapel AME) intersects with SW Ray Charles Street, where the music legend's childhood home is located, and runs along behind Haffye Hayes Park and Evergreen Cemetery before rejoining the highway again. But the street is in poor condition, with potholes so bad in some places that cars drive through the grass on the side of the road and in people's yards to avoid some of the biggest potholes. "It's the busiest street in Greenville," said Thomas, adding that there was also no railroad warning where the street crosses the railroad. Mayor Kovacherich Arnold assured Thomas that the matter had been under discussion, and because any roadwork would be an expensive undertaking for the town, council members had been looking at ways to piggy-back Grand Street with another road project, if there was another one nearby in the future. "It's not being ignored," Arnold said.Greene Publishing, Inc.

The SOE holds voter drives every second Monday (the next one coming upTommy Hardee Addresses Greenville Town CouncilBy Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.Greenville Public Works Supervisor J.C. Fead reported to the Greenville Town Council that the restroom situation was still a problem in Haffye Hayes Park, with people still doing their business on the concrete slab in front of the doors at night when the park is closed and the restroom doors are locked; only now, the lights in the women's restroom no longer work, possibly due to vandalism. As they had done at a previous meeting, the town council member members discussed the most cost-effective means of protecting the restroom facility after hours, including putting a locked gate in front of the structure, but as it was before, the question of nancially strapped town coffers proved to be a problem. However, the damage to the uorescent light xtures above the picnic pavilion was denitely because of vandals, Fead told the council, showing them one of the broken plastic coverings that would have to be replaced, along with a few light tubes that were also damaged. "I think it's kids...I think they must be standing on the picnic tables and hitting them with something," he said. The council passed a motion to replace the bulbs and coverings, and also to get price quotes on security cameras to catch the vandals in the park, and well as cameras to cover City Hall, an idea that had been discussed at an earlier meeting, when boxes of paperwork had gone missing and then somehow reappeared a few months later. The council also discussed putting security cameras at the rec park or putting in locks because during the rainy weather, when no games are being played, people are going in there and "turning it into a mudbog." Although the rec park is located in the county, it is owned by the city of Greenville. "It's town property being damaged," said one council member. "Let's lock it up when there are no games."Greene Publishing, Inc.

Jail Report Conservative Corner Conservative Corner By John Hayward, Human Events Madison County… With all of the rain in July, we’ve been accustomed to milder summer temperatures, so the current heat wave is hard to adjust to. As I write this article, the heat index is 108. During hot weather, it’s important to stay hydrated and the easiest way to do that is to drink water. One of the essential nutrients, your body needs water for survival. Yes, it is in the same category as protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins and minerals, all essential for life. Water doesn’t get as much press as other nutrients, but you can’t survive without it. When you consider water accounts for 55-75 percent of your body weight and plays a role in every cell, organ and system in your body, it becomes important. It makes up all of your body fluids, acts as a lubricant, aids in digestion and regulates body temperature. You can live two months without food, but less than a week without water. Generally, your body needs about two quarts of water a day to replace what you lose through normal activity. Your body can lose anywhere from 812 cups of water every day. Factor in hot weather and any physical activity, your loss of fluids accelerates. Anytime you are outdoors in summer weather, you need to drink water frequently. Drinking water on a regular basis will meet your fluid needs, but many beverages and even foods supply water. Skim milk, 100% juice, and decaffeinated teas are mostly water. Fruits and vegetables also contain a fair amount of water. Go easy on caffeinated beverages like coffee, tea and sodas because they act as diuretics which cause an accelerated fluid loss. To keep hydrated in the heat of summer, nutrition experts recommend you start the morning off right by drinking a glass of water as soon as you wake up and continue to drink water throughout the day. For every cup of caffeinated coffee, tea or soda, drink a cup of water. During the summer heat, you may even want to consider switching to decaffeinated coffee, tea and soda since caffeine depletes your body of water. Make a habit of getting a drink of water every time you pass a water fountain. And, consider drinking water with each meal. Get into the habit of drinking water frequently each day, especially during these hot days of summer. It will keep you hydrated and contribute to your overall health. For more information on nutrition, contact the Madison County Extension office. The University of Florida Extension – Madison County is an Equal Employment Opportunity Institution. Stay Hydrated In The August HeatAsylum-Seekers Overwhelm The BorderFor a little sneak preview of where our ruling class’ obsession with amnesty for illegal aliens will lead us, take a look at what’s happening on the border right now. An astonishing surge of asylum seekers has literally overwhelmed U.S. Immigration in San Diego, forcing them to rent out hotel rooms to accommodate the overflow, while some aliens were “released to cities around the U.S.,” according to Fox News: Sources say one day last week, 200 bordercrossers came through the Otay Mesa Port of Entry claiming asylum while and as many as 550 overflowed inside the processing center there and in nearby San Ysidro. “People were sleeping on floors – they had nowhere to put them,” said one source, a longtime border agent and supervisor. “This shouldn’t be happening. Unless there is an immediate and well-publicized policy change, this situation will become another debacle.” At a hotel near San Diego — which Fox News agreed not to identify for security reasons — ICE vans arrived several times over the weekend with immigrant families. They were escorted to the second floor by two armed, uniformed agents. Two border agents secured the entrance and side door. Documents obtained by Fox News show that recently on a single day, dozens of illegal immigrants were being transferred to an area hotel where rooms cost $99 a night. Others were released to addresses in Texas, Florida and even Brooklyn, N.Y. This looks like an orchestrated attack on the border. Asylum requests from Mexico are normally uncommon, and many of the people in this tidal wave are using the same phrase – they’re requesting asylum because they claim they have “credible fear” of violence from drug cartels. Many of the applicants are busted for using false addresses… but they don’t bother to show up for the asylum hearings, so it doesn’t matter. The lengthy asylum process gives them plenty of time to blend into the “shadows” we are always told illegal immigrants have been condemned to. Asylum claims from Mexico are highly unusual and critics say this is an orchestrated sham – it’s not about getting asylum, they say, but about overwhelming the system and getting a free pass into the U.S. and a court date for which no one will show up. ... This new surge of asylum-seekers from Mexico is more than 10 times the usual rate, ... It looks like a deliberate Cloward-Piven strategy to overwhelm the system, taking advantage of the weaknesses deliberately inserted into U.S. immigration policy: ... “The order from Washington are to simply turn these people loose,” said Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform. “All you have to say is you qualify for the Dream Act and or you intend to apply and they’re instructed by their higher ups to simply turn these people loose, to set them free and let them pursue any path they want.”THE MADISON COUNTY REPUBLICAN EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE Will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, August 26, at the Republican Victory Office ALL REPUBLICANS WELCOME Paid for and approved by the Madison County Republican Executive Committee MadisonRepublican@embarqmail.com Tilting At Windmills And Dreaming Read Jacob’s blog at www.jacobbembry.com His book, Higher Call is available in Kindle format at www.amazon.com or in paperback at www.amazon.com www.bn.com and www.booksamillion.com or by sending $10 plus $3.99 shipping and handling to Jacob Bembry, P.O.

Travelers can set up a prole, examine others proles and message through the site to select potential roommates. The website claims its shared hotel rooms helps single travelers save money and also provides "the opportunity to meet new friends, build your network, create new opportunities, exchange on the city and learn."Breakfast Ends In Standoff With PoliceIn Berwick, England, two men who broke into a diner looking for breakfast, ended up in a ve-hour standoff with police. The men were armed with knives and refused to come out after police discovered them inside the cafŽ. After ve hours of negotiating, the men surrendered and were arrested on suspicion of burglary. Diner owner, Angela Marshall, said, "Apparently they were hungry and wanted some quiche."iPad Games Going To The DogsIn New York, dog trainer Anna Jane Grossman, is beginning a class for dogs and owners on teaching the dogs to use their noses to tap an iPad screen in order to launch an app designed for the dogs to play. Grossman says about 25 people have signed up so far. The Wall Street Journal says cats have been playing on iPads for a while now. T.J. Fuller and Nate Murray developed the iPad app "Game for Cats," which encourages cats to swat at a laser pointer, mouse or moth on the screen. The app has been downloaded more than one million times. Cat food maker, Friskies, has developed its own app that allows cats to chase a virtual animal. They have also developed "You vs. Cat" a game that allows you to compete with your cat. Friskies has a running score on its website: 28.2 million points for cat to 19.7 million points for people. App creator, Eric Sutherland said, "Humans are just getting pummeled."Designer Handbags Are Collateral For LoansIn Hong Kong, you can now obtain a loan using a designer purse as collateral. The Yes Lady Finance company offers immediate loans on Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Hermes or Chanel handbags. Prada handbags are considered. Yes Lady holds the purse and will loan 80 percent of its value. Customers get their purse returned after repaying the loan at four percent monthly interest over a fourmonth period. The four-year-old company recently gave a loan in excess of $20,000 for a Hermes Birkin bag.Surgeon Arrested For Keeping Contents of Patients StomachIn Krasnoyarsk, Russia, a Russian surgeon was arrested for taking a ve-gram bag of heroin he found in a patient's stomach. Police said the doctor was intoxicated at the time of his detention. The surgeon can face up to 15 years in prison for theft and possession.is Monday, Sept. 9) at Greenville City Hall from 9 a.m. until 12 noon, where Greenville residents have a chance to register to vote without having to drive all the way to Madison. But equally important, and something Hardee emphasized strongly at the Town Council meeting, was getting voters who had been on the rolls for several years to stop by and update their signatures. Signatures evolve in the way they look, because most people change the way they habitually sign their names the way they form the loops and curves of different letters over a period of time; signatures also change because of marriage or divorce. As an example of why keeping a signature updated is so important, Hardee asked the council members to suppose they had voted in person for years and years, and then for some reason had to be out of town during election and voted absentee. His or her vote would have to be discarded if the signature on the ballot didn't match what was on file with the SOE. "We have to match signatures on every single absentee ballot that comes in, or we can't count it." Hardee told those present. The SOE has also been trying to reach voters on the "inactive list," those who haven't voted in the last few election cycles, but several letters mailed out to them came back as "bad address." If people haven't voted in one or more election cycles, it is vitally important that they get in touch with Hardee's office at 229 SW Pinckney Street, next to the courthouse annex in Madison, or come by Greenville City Hall during the Sept. 9 voter drive and update their information, to make sure they are eligible to vote in the next election that comes up (there are also monthly voter drives in Lee, every second Friday, at Lee City Hall from 9 a.m. until noon. The next one coming up is Friday, Sept. 13). Hardee's second main objective was to present the Town Council with the idea of rolling in four year terms instead of the current two year terms the council members serve, and stagg er the re-elections in two year cycles as the city of Madison and the town of Lee already do, and then synchronize their elections with those cities. It would require an amendment to the town charter, but it would dramatically cut the cost of holding elections for Greenville, by as much as half. Another way to cut cost, he told the council, is by encouraging as many people as possible to vote early, and with an early voting site operating in Greenville in the days leading up to an election, residents won't have to drive all the way into Madison in order to take advantage of early voting. Also, with Greenville on the same election schedule as Madison and Lee, Hardee believes that voter turnout would improve remark ably; in one offyear election for the town, only 41 residents turned out to vote. The Council discussed the idea, and agreed to take up the charter amendment process in March; with that done, the Town would then go with November elections, in synch with Madison and Lee.Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Lynette Norris, August 12, 2013Supervisor of Elections Tommy Hardee speaks to the Greenville Town Council about an upcoming voter drive and the possibility of synchronizing Greenvilles elections to the rest of the countys schedule, in order to save the town a good bit of money. Twin Oaks Cont. From Page 1extra time to pay, spread out over several months. Another resident, sitting in the audience, had been through a similar situation, and stated that she had also had to pay her unexpectedly huge bill after her leak was xed. So when the Twin Oaks item came up on the agenda, some of the council members were not in a mood to continue allowing the Academy to slide, in spite of it being the town's single biggest customer. "I had to pay my water bill and you had to pay your water bill, Mr. Mayor," said Council Member Margaret Poppell. "And he (the man who appealed) is having to pay his water bill, and (the lady in the audience) had to pay her water bill, too." The situation began some time in November or December, when the main meter out at Twin Oaks broke. The Academy Administration has told Greenville that "someone" told them not to worry about payments on the water bill until the meter was xed. The problem, explained J.C. Fead, Supervisor of the Water Department, is that the meter is part of a big assembly of other parts, gauges, check valves, and so forth, much of it encased in concrete, that will have to be jack-hammered out. Also, the meter in question is an obsolete model attached to an obsolete set-up of pipes. If another working meter of this particular model could be found, it would cost an estimated $6000. Newer meters will not t the pipes, and the pipes, because of the concrete encasement, can't be readily modied to t the new meters. Since the meter is on private property, "The Comptroller (for Twin Oaks) has said they'll take care of the meter," Greenville Town Consultant Jim Parrish told the council. "They'll need a contractor to do it for them," said Fead. Because of that, "I don't want to get us into the position to x their meter and still not be paid," said Parrish. Since that time, the water bill has been estimated, based on average use in prior months, and late fees have been accumulating as well. Parrish said he had spoken with a gentleman in the Twin Oaks Comptroller's Ofce in Bristol, who claimed to have sent payments for the months of June and July. Parrish said he asked the man to nd documentation and sent the it to City Hall, so those payments could be credited to the account. So far, "Our records show no payments," Parrish told the council. Twin Oaks has also said that it didn't even receive a bill for the months of January and February. Further discussion revealed that Twins Oaks had endured some funding cuts from the state, and was believed to be in a bit of a bind. Council member Calvin Malone inquired about cutting off the water, and Parrish replied that he was "Trying to establish rst whether or not they'll work with us before we send nasty letters and cut off their water." Former Town Clerk Trish Hinton, seated in the audience, stated that during her brief tenure as clerk was when the situation came to her attention, and that it was at that time "reaching critical mass." She recalls her own reaction at the time as: "They're getting away with murder." "We met and talked about some action at the time, but I never spoke to anyone personally." Hinton added. "And because of my brief tenure, I never had a chance to follow up." Mayor Arnold said that Greenville had sent them two or three letters since then, but Fead added that he believed the Twin Oaks was treating the small town of Greenville as a joke. "They'd never get away with this in Leon County or Jacksonville," or any of several other larger cities and counties. The council discussed what sort of action would be appropriate and agreed if they could not get something done by next week, they would ask Greenville Attorney Christine Thurman to "take it to the next level."

The winner will be announced at the annual Farm Bureau meeting and dinner, which will be held on September 17 at the Madison County Central School, at 6:30 p.m. Many Americans have taken steps in recent years to protect their identity, and their efforts appear to be working. The Federal Trade Commission reported in March 2011 that identitytheft complaints have fallen by 20% between 2008 and 2010. Still, more than 500,000 people have their identities stolen every year. If you havent taken measures to protect yourself, it may be a good idea to consider your options. Identity theft is a crime in which an individual illegally obtains and wrongfully uses another persons personal information„such as a Social Security number, bank account number, or credit card number„generally for financial gain. Once a thief has possession of your personal information, it may be used to obtain a loan, run up credit card debt, or commit other crimes. The U.S. Department of Justice recommends that individuals take four steps to help protect them against identity theft. These steps are represented by the acronym SCAM S „ Be stingy when it comes to giving out your personal information. Make sure the person requesting the information is on a need-to-knowŽ basis. For example, someone who claims to be calling from your bank does not need to know your mothers maiden name if its already on file with the bank. C „ Check your financial information periodically. If you get hard-copy credit card or bank statements mailed to you, consider keeping these documents in a safe, secure location. Be skeptical if it appears the financial institution missed a month. Identity thieves may try to change the address on your accounts to keep their actions hidden from you for as long as possible. A „ From time to time, ask for a copy of your credit report. This report shows bank and financial accounts in your name and may help provide evidence if someone has used your name to open another account. To obtain a report, contact any of the three major credit bureaus, Equifax, Experian, or Transunion. M „ Maintain good records of your financial accounts and obligations. Experts recommend that you keep hard copies or electronic versions of monthly bank and credit card statements. Easy access to this information may make it easier to dispute a transaction, especially if your signature has been forged. Recent trends indicate that government agencies, credit card companies, and individuals have become smarter about protecting personal information and identifying perpetrators. Nevertheless, having your identity stolen may result in out-of-pocket financial loss, plus the additional cost of trying to restore your good name.

Do you eat Dates? Dates?, What's that? You know, the red orange fruit that grows on the Palm trees. No, I never had one, and I didn't know that you could eat them. This is the typical response from anyone under the age of 30. But ask the same of most anyone who grew up in the 1960's or 70's in a small southern town, and the response is usually one of smiles and the look of delight as the memory of the sweet tart like taste, brings back thoughts of yesteryear, days gone by. A time when things were simple and uncluttered. Kids played outside, and rode bikes, and if you didn't have your own, you'd sit on the handle bars or hop on back to hitch a ride. We played dodge ball, or kick ball, neighborhood basketball, or football games. We played ping pong, shot marbles, played hide and seek. Summers were great, lled with activity and adventures to discover outside, it was never too hot, and we used our imagination and our ingenuity. We had horsey on a stick, the invisible dog. We used to tie balloons onto the bike forks and let them rub against the spokes on the wheel to sound like a motorcycle. The fair would come to town. We had dirt streets and the Dates grew on Palm trees in the cemetery. Every summer, we'd take bike rides to Sunset Cemetery to see if the Dates were ready. We didn't want to miss them as other people were waiting and watching for them too. I wondered why I never saw them for sale in the grocery store, but anywhere we went and we saw them, we wanted them. Most of the time, we'd rinse them off and eat them right then, chewing the juicy brous pulp until all the avor was gone, then spit them out and bite into another. Sometimes we put salt on them and enjoyed a sweet, tangy, salty avor. We didn't know about Date jelly, wine, or preserves.We ate them fresh off of the ground after they'd fallen or actually pulled the cluster from the tree and ate them one by one. We never had the dried ones, only the fresh ones. I wondered where they'd come from. Turns out, there are many varieties of Dates and Palm trees. For our purposes, we'll keep it simple and just focus on the particular variety that I grew up on and continue to enjoy today, except that now I don't have to go to the cemetery to get them. I have a Date tree at my house. Its been here for all of the 23 years that I've lived here. I don't do anything special to it, but each year, around July and August, it produces Dates abundantly. I hate to see them go to waste, so I pick them, wash them off, bag and refrigerate them, and give them to anyone who savor the avor of this wonderful fruit, and there are many that do. I love to see their faces light up when I hand them a bag lled with plump, juicy, ripe Dates. "How much are they" They're free. no charge! "Really, Thanks, I really appreciate this", and sometimes I get a story of how they used to eat them when they were kids. Such a simple gesture, the gift of a bag of Dates, can bring a warm feeling of joy, a simple kindness, that's absolutely priceless. I recommend that you try it, especially if you have a Date tree, or fruit tree of any sort. Don't let them go to waste. Pick them up, rinse them off, bag and refrigerate them and give them away to any who will appreciate them. The feeling of joy that comes from giving, instead of receiving will be priceless. I searched the internet for a picture of the type of Dates that we have here in South Georgia, but I didn't see the particular variety, so I called Dasher's Nursery and the gentleman told me that we have the Pindo Date Palm. So I googled Pindo Date Palm and I saw a picture that looks like our Dates. They are either Pindo or Queen Palm Dates.They are very similar to each other, except the Queen Palms fruit, when ripe is always orange to red in color, like the ones I have, and the Pindo Palm fruit however is always yellow and when ripe, is very yellow, but not orange. Yep, mine are more orange and red orange, so they are Queen Palm Dates.( the internet was not invented when I was a child, we used encyclopedias! Remember them?) These palms are a common landscape plant in Florida and Georgia cemeteries and in the south in general and most owners will gladly give you the fruit since it does create quite a mess on lawns and in yards. Eating the Date is similar to eating Sugar Cane, in that it is tasty, but very brous. Some people can swallow the ber, but most just chew it to get the juice and avor out of it, then spit the pulp out.It reminds me of a peach and a nectarine put together, kind of sweet and tangy tart. But most of all eating Dates remind me of days gone, but certainly not forgotten. We're blessed to still be here, many others are not, and the Dates?, well they're still here too. So when you see a Date tree, try one, and discover what you've been missing.

Did You Know? Switzerlandeats the most chocolate equating to 10 kilos per person per year Letters to the Editor are typed word for word, comma for comma, as sent to this newspaper.Do You Eat Dates? Letters To The Editor Our national security could be in jeopardy if the $500 billion in sequestration defense cuts are implemented. Our military had to absorb $80 billion in prior cuts and is now cutting $487 billion over 10 years to comply with the Budget Control Act. The $487 billion in cuts translates into the Army reducing its forces by 80,000 soldiers over the next ve years. The Marines will cut 20,000 troops. Other cuts include early retirement of ships with the possibility of having 11 carrier battle groups instead of the 12 needed; the retirement of the Air Force A-10 Warthog aircraft; and the possible closure of our only tank production facility in Lima, Ohio. These cuts are occurring while leaving the Pentagon's civilian workforce of 750,000 unscathed. DOD added 62,000 civilians during the past four years. If the additional $500 billion in sequestration cuts are implemented, over 1 million civilian full-time jobs with contractors, sub-contractors and ancillary businesses will be lost. The unemployment rate could increase 0.5% to 1.0% and the U.S. Gross Domestic Product could decrease by $85 billion. The Obama Administration and Congress have to nd other ways to reduce the decit without adversely impacting our national defense. Donald A.

6Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, August 16, 2013Farm/Outdoors On Aug, 12, Lee Dixon, a resident of Madison County, received recognition from the Florida Forest Service through the Forest Stewardship Program for the hard work she has put into her 50-acre forested property located in Hamilton County Through her forest management efforts, she has qualied to have her property recognized as a Certied Stewardship Forest. She received an engraved Forest Stewardship Plaque, and also a Forest Stewardship Sign to display on her property The Dixon property is located on the bank of the Withlacoochee River and is currently being managed in a way that integrates timber management, wildlife habitat, recreation, aesthetics, and soil and water conservation. She maintains relines ar ound the property, which was replanted in Longleaf Pines in 2012. She has put a lot of time and effort into getting her land into its present condition and is to be commended for her efforts. The Forest Stewardship program recognizes forest landowners who manage their property in a sustainable manner through multiple management objectives. These objectives may include timber management, wildlife management, recreation, aesthetics, grazing, soil and water conservation, and other objectives a landowner may have. Anyone interested in learning more about the Forest Stewardship Program can contact the Florida Forest Service Hamilton County Forester, Greg Staten, at 386-792-1269. Madison County Resident Has Hamilton County Property Forest Stewardship CertifiedBy Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. The number of wildres in Madison County went down this season, Butch Galbraith and Tanner Greene told the Madison Kiwanis Club, where they were recently guest speakers. The month of May got a little dry and a little hairy, but overall, the wet, rainy summer has helped keep wildre numbers low. Galbraith and Greene, of the Division of Forestry, serve a district that actually covers four counties, including Taylor, Lafayette, Dixie and Madison, a rather large stretch of territory, where their mission includes protection of many acres from wildres, responsible stewardship of Florida's forestry resources, (including the use of controlled burns as a re management tool,) and assisting local timber farmers in managing their resources. Galbraith gave a quick rundown on the number of wildres in Madison this year. Some of them were signicant, like the two lightening res in May that involved 26 acres, but quick response time kept them contained. Others, like wildres caused by campres, incendiaries, equipment and so forth, were way down because of wet, rainy conditions that prevailed during most of the season. This year, there were no res caused by children. "But if it quit raining right now, those numbers would quadruple right quick," said Galbraith. The Department of Forestry also issues burn pile authorizations for people who need to do large-scale seasonal burning, land clearing, or burn off an area for agricultural purposes. This year, 1638 burn authorizations were issued for Madison. Galbraith and Greene also conducted 33 re prevention education programs this year, programs that often included Smokey the Bear putting in appearances at elementary schools, 4-H Clubs and other children's organizations. When it comes to services provided to Madison County residents, the Forestry Service can provide landowners with assistance in identifying tree and insect species with the help of certied forestry agent Justin Kania. Last year, USFS provided 580 such assists on 14,000 acres. The Department of Forestry can also provide assistance for landowners who need help establishing re lines or rebreaks on their property before burning. Occasionally, they do have to write notices of burn violations, a misdemeanor, "But usually, we try to educate folks (about safe re practices) way before we get to that point." For the average county resident who wants to burn yard waste, the rst rule of thumb is to call the US Forestry Service and make sure conditions will allow burning on that day. The burn pile cannot exceed eight feet in diameter, and it must be set back at least 25 feet from your home, 150 feet from any other homes, 50 feet from any paved public roads, and 25 feet from any wildlands, brush or other combustible structures. Other outdoor burning requirements include: NEVER leave your re unattended NEVER burn on windy days Keep a water hose and shovel handy in case your re escapes Make sure your re is COMPLETLY out before you leave Also, peat moss res like the ones that sometimes are up at San Pedro Bay are a "worst nightmare" scenario for the forestry service; smoldering peat moss res are almost impossible to put out, and they create a lot of smoke. If a county resident ever wants to burn off the muck from a dried-up pond, "make sure you plow a re break around it." For more information about safe burn procedures and other services provided by the US Forestry Service in the Madison area, call (850) 838-2299.Division Of Forestry’s Butch Galbraith And Tanner Greene Visit KiwanisGreene Publishing, Inc.

Brother Gabe used as his text, John 1:43-51, “The Calling of Nathanael.” Setting: Edge of Jewish territory, Galilee, district of foreigners; Characters: Philip, Nathanael, and Jesus; Plot: Philip, who had just become one of Jesus’ followers, found Nathanael to tell him that he had discovered the Messiah. Although Nathanael was skeptical, he did go with Philip to meet Jesus. It turns out that Jesus “knew” Nathanael had been under the fig tree, possibly praying or reading the Scripture. Jesus paid a compliment to Nathanael in verse 47 and proceeded to issue this command, “Follow me.” “Imitate me, do what I do.” Anticlimax: In verse 49, Nathanael proclaimed who Jesus is. Climax: Verses 50-51 tell us that Nathanael is about to be a participant in an explosion (1) that the heavens will open up ministering to the Son of Man (2) as Jesus lives the next three years of His life. Conclusion: We are to look for Jesus and take His message to a lost and dying world.

Radical Worship Coming To NTCCAgroup of singers, musicians, and worshipers will be bringing “Radical Worship” to New Testament Christian Center on Saturday evening, August 17, at 6 p.m. This group, from Tallahassee and surrounding counties, are dedicated to bringing in the presence of God and connecting the Body of Christ through passionate worship. Stan Kmet and his wife, Marci, leaders of this group of worshipers, began this endeavor fourteen years ago at Carpenter’s Church in Lakeland. They now live in Tallahassee and are joined with other believers there. They believe that as we “come together to exalt the King, God is accomplishing His Word in us and around us. He is equipping and restoring His Bride and His army in the earth. Through worship, He treads down the enemy and gives us the victory.” NTCC, located 2 miles east of Madison on Hwy. 90, welcomes everyone to attend this special service.

Grand Street is anything but grand, Greenville resident Kimberly Thomas told the Greenville Town Council at its August meeting. In fact, in its current condition, it could affect the safety of tourists and visitors to the area. Veering off Highway 90 (going east) and paralleling the highway through the business section and residential section of Greenville, the little black-topped road passes two churches (New Zion Missionary Baptist and Allen Chapel AME) intersects with SW Ray Charles Street, where the music legends childhood home is located, and runs along behind Haffye Hayes Park and Evergreen Cemetery before rejoining the highway again. But the street is in poor condition, with potholes so bad in some places that cars drive through the grass on the side of the road and in peoples yards to avoid some of the biggest potholes. Its the busiest street in Greenville, said Thomas, adding that there was also no railroad warning where the street crosses the railroad. Mayor Kovacherich Arnold assured Thomas that the matter had been under discussion, and because any roadwork would be an expensive undertaking for the town, council members had been looking at ways to piggy-back Grand Street with another road project, if there was another one nearby in the future. Its not being ignored, Arnold said.Greene Publishing, Inc.

In response to the residents appeal, they could only sympathize (two of the council members have had similar experiences with leaks causing unexpectedly big water bills, and each had to pay the money owed in installments) and give the residentGreenvilles Twin Oaks Owes $30,000 Water BillBy Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.Supervisor of Elections, Tommy Hardee, addressed members of the Greenville Town Council at their Aug. 12 meeting to discuss the next voter drive in Greenville and why its important. The SOE holds voter drives every second Monday (the next one coming upTommy Hardee Addresses Greenville Town CouncilBy Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.Greenville Public Works Supervisor J.C. Fead reported to the Greenville Town Council that the restroom situation was still a problem in Haffye Hayes Park, with people still doing their business on the concrete slab in front of the doors at night when the park is closed and the restroom doors are locked; only now, the lights in the womens restroom no longer work, possibly due to vandalism. As they had done at a previous meeting, the town council member members discussed the most cost-effective means of protecting the restroom facility after hours, including putting a locked gate in front of the structure, but as it was before, the question of nancially strapped town coffers proved to be a problem. However, the damage to the uorescent light xtures above the picnic pavilion was denitely because of vandals, Fead told the council, showing them one of the broken plastic coverings that would have to be replaced, along with a few light tubes that were also damaged. I think its kids...I think they must be standing on the picnic tables and hitting them with something, he said. The council passed a motion to replace the bulbs and coverings, and also to get price quotes on security cameras to catch the vandals in the park, and well as cameras to cover City Hall, an idea that had been discussed at an earlier meeting, when boxes of paperwork had gone missing and then somehow reappeared a few months later. The council also discussed putting security cameras at the rec park or putting in locks because during the rainy weather, when no games are being played, people are going in there and turning it into a mudbog. Although the rec park is located in the county, it is owned by the city of Greenville. Its town property being damaged, said one council member. Lets lock it up when there are no games.Greene Publishing, Inc.

As I write this article, the heat index is 108. During hot weather, its important to stay hydrated and the easiest way to do that is to drink water. One of the essential nutrients, your body needs water for survival. Yes, it is in the same category as protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins and minerals, all essential for life. Water doesnt get as much press as other nutrients, but you cant survive without it. When you consider water accounts for 55-75 percent of your body weight and plays a role in every cell, organ and system in your body, it becomes important. It makes up all of your body fluids, acts as a lubricant, aids in digestion and regulates body temperature. You can live two months without food, but less than a week without water. Generally, your body needs about two quarts of water a day to replace what you lose through normal activity. Your body can lose anywhere from 812 cups of water every day. Factor in hot weather and any physical activity, your loss of fluids accelerates. Anytime you are outdoors in summer weather, you need to drink water frequently. Drinking water on a regular basis will meet your fluid needs, but many beverages and even foods supply water. Skim milk, 100% juice, and decaffeinated teas are mostly water. Fruits and vegetables also contain a fair amount of water. Go easy on caffeinated beverages like coffee, tea and sodas because they act as diuretics which cause an accelerated fluid loss. To keep hydrated in the heat of summer, nutrition experts recommend you start the morning off right by drinking a glass of water as soon as you wake up and continue to drink water throughout the day. For every cup of caffeinated coffee, tea or soda, drink a cup of water. During the summer heat, you may even want to consider switching to decaffeinated coffee, tea and soda since caffeine depletes your body of water. Make a habit of getting a drink of water every time you pass a water fountain. And, consider drinking water with each meal. Get into the habit of drinking water frequently each day, especially during these hot days of summer. It will keep you hydrated and contribute to your overall health. For more information on nutrition, contact the Madison County Extension office. The University of Florida Extension Madison County is an Equal Employment Opportunity Institution. Stay Hydrated In The August HeatAsylum-Seekers Overwhelm The BorderFor a little sneak preview of where our ruling class obsession with amnesty for illegal aliens will lead us, take a look at whats happening on the border right now. An astonishing surge of asylum seekers has literally overwhelmed U.S. Immigration in San Diego, forcing them to rent out hotel rooms to accommodate the overflow, while some aliens were released to cities around the U.S., according to Fox News: Sources say one day last week, 200 bordercrossers came through the Otay Mesa Port of Entry claiming asylum while and as many as 550 overflowed inside the processing center there and in nearby San Ysidro. People were sleeping on floors they had nowhere to put them, said one source, a longtime border agent and supervisor. This shouldnt be happening. Unless there is an immediate and well-publicized policy change, this situation will become another debacle. At a hotel near San Diego which Fox News agreed not to identify for security reasons ICE vans arrived several times over the weekend with immigrant families. They were escorted to the second floor by two armed, uniformed agents. Two border agents secured the entrance and side door. Documents obtained by Fox News show that recently on a single day, dozens of illegal immigrants were being transferred to an area hotel where rooms cost $99 a night. Others were released to addresses in Texas, Florida and even Brooklyn, N.Y. This looks like an orchestrated attack on the border. Asylum requests from Mexico are normally uncommon, and many of the people in this tidal wave are using the same phrase theyre requesting asylum because they claim they have credible fear of violence from drug cartels. Many of the applicants are busted for using false addresses but they dont bother to show up for the asylum hearings, so it doesnt matter. The lengthy asylum process gives them plenty of time to blend into the shadows we are always told illegal immigrants have been condemned to. Asylum claims from Mexico are highly unusual and critics say this is an orchestrated sham its not about getting asylum, they say, but about overwhelming the system and getting a free pass into the U.S. and a court date for which no one will show up. ... This new surge of asylum-seekers from Mexico is more than 10 times the usual rate, ... It looks like a deliberate Cloward-Piven strategy to overwhelm the system, taking advantage of the weaknesses deliberately inserted into U.S. immigration policy: ... The order from Washington are to simply turn these people loose, said Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform. All you have to say is you qualify for the Dream Act and or you intend to apply and theyre instructed by their higher ups to simply turn these people loose, to set them free and let them pursue any path they want.THE MADISON COUNTY REPUBLICAN EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE Will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, August 26, at the Republican Victory Office ALL REPUBLICANS WELCOME Paid for and approved by the Madison County Republican Executive Committee MadisonRepublican@embarqmail.com Tilting At Windmills And Dreaming Read Jacobs blog at www.jacobbembry.com.

But equally important, and something Hardee emphasized strongly at the Town Council meeting, was getting voters who had been on the rolls for several years to stop by and update their signatures. Signatures evolve in the way they look, because most people change the way they habitually sign their names the way they form the loops and curves of different letters over a period of time; signatures also change because of marriage or divorce. As an example of why keeping a signature updated is so important, Hardee asked the council members to suppose they had voted in person for years and years, and then for some reason had to be out of town during election and voted absentee. His or her vote would have to be discarded if the signature on the ballot didnt match what was on file with the SOE. We have to match signatures on every single absentee ballot that comes in, or we cant count it. Hardee told those present. The SOE has also been trying to reach voters on the inactive list, those who havent voted in the last few election cycles, but several letters mailed out to them came back as bad address. If people havent voted in one or more election cycles, it is vitally important that they get in touch with Hardees office at 229 SW Pinckney Street, next to the courthouse annex in Madison, or come by Greenville City Hall during the Sept. 9 voter drive and update their information, to make sure they are eligible to vote in the next election that comes up (there are also monthly voter drives in Lee, every second Friday, at Lee City Hall from 9 a.m. until noon. The next one coming up is Friday, Sept. 13). Hardees second main objective was to present the Town Council with the idea of rolling in four year terms instead of the current two year terms the council members serve, and stagger the re-elections in two year cycles as the city of Madison and the town of Lee already do, and then synchronize their elections with those cities. It would require an amendment to the town charter, but it would dramatically cut the cost of holding elections for Greenville, by as much as half. Another way to cut cost, he told the council, is by encouraging as many people as possible to vote early, and with an early voting site operating in Greenville in the days leading up to an election, residents wont have to drive all the way into Madison in order to take advantage of early voting. Also, with Greenville on the same election schedule as Madison and Lee, Hardee believes that voter turnout would improve remark ably; in one offyear election for the town, only 41 residents turned out to vote. The Council discussed the idea, and agreed to take up the charter amendment process in March; with that done, the Town would then go with November elections, in synch with Madison and Lee.Greene Publishing, Inc.

Twin Oaks Cont. From Page 1extra time to pay, spread out over several months. Another resident, sitting in the audience, had been through a similar situation, and stated that she had also had to pay her unexpectedly huge bill after her leak was xed. So when the Twin Oaks item came up on the agenda, some of the council members were not in a mood to continue allowing the Academy to slide, in spite of it being the towns single biggest customer. I had to pay my water bill and you had to pay your water bill, Mr. Mayor, said Council Member Margaret Poppell. And he (the man who appealed) is having to pay his water bill, and (the lady in the audience) had to pay her water bill, too. The situation began some time in November or December, when the main meter out at Twin Oaks broke. The Academy Administration has told Greenville that someone told them not to worry about payments on the water bill until the meter was xed. The problem, explained J.C. Fead, Supervisor of the Water Department, is that the meter is part of a big assembly of other parts, gauges, check valves, and so forth, much of it encased in concrete, that will have to be jack-hammered out. Also, the meter in question is an obsolete model attached to an obsolete set-up of pipes. If another working meter of this particular model could be found, it would cost an estimated $6000. Newer meters will not t the pipes, and the pipes, because of the concrete encasement, cant be readily modied to t the new meters. Since the meter is on private property, The Comptroller (for Twin Oaks) has said theyll take care of the meter, Greenville Town Consultant Jim Parrish told the council. Theyll need a contractor to do it for them, said Fead. Because of that, I dont want to get us into the position to x their meter and still not be paid, said Parrish. Since that time, the water bill has been estimated, based on average use in prior months, and late fees have been accumulating as well. Parrish said he had spoken with a gentleman in the Twin Oaks Comptrollers Ofce in Bristol, who claimed to have sent payments for the months of June and July. Parrish said he asked the man to nd documentation and sent the it to City Hall, so those payments could be credited to the account. So far, Our records show no payments, Parrish told the council. Twin Oaks has also said that it didnt even receive a bill for the months of January and February. Further discussion revealed that Twins Oaks had endured some funding cuts from the state, and was believed to be in a bit of a bind. Council member Calvin Malone inquired about cutting off the water, and Parrish replied that he was Trying to establish rst whether or not theyll work with us before we send nasty letters and cut off their water. Former Town Clerk Trish Hinton, seated in the audience, stated that during her brief tenure as clerk was when the situation came to her attention, and that it was at that time reaching critical mass. She recalls her own reaction at the time as: Theyre getting away with murder. We met and talked about some action at the time, but I never spoke to anyone personally. Hinton added. And because of my brief tenure, I never had a chance to follow up. Mayor Arnold said that Greenville had sent them two or three letters since then, but Fead added that he believed the Twin Oaks was treating the small town of Greenville as a joke. Theyd never get away with this in Leon County or Jacksonville, or any of several other larger cities and counties. The council discussed what sort of action would be appropriate and agreed if they could not get something done by next week, they would ask Greenville Attorney Christine Thurman to take it to the next level.

The winner will be announced at the annual Farm Bureau meeting and dinner, which will be held on September 17 at the Madison County Central School, at 6:30 p.m. Many Americans have taken steps in recent years to protect their identity, and their efforts appear to be working. The Federal Trade Commission reported in March 2011 that identitytheft complaints have fallen by 20% between 2008 and 2010. Still, more than 500,000 people have their identities stolen every year. If you havent taken measures to protect yourself, it may be a good idea to consider your options. Identity theft is a crime in which an individual illegally obtains and wrongfully uses another persons personal informationsuch as a Social Security number, bank account number, or credit card numbergenerally for financial gain. Once a thief has possession of your personal information, it may be used to obtain a loan, run up credit card debt, or commit other crimes. The U.S. Department of Justice recommends that individuals take four steps to help protect them against identity theft. These steps are represented by the acronym SCAM S Be stingy when it comes to giving out your personal information. Make sure the person requesting the information is on a need-to-know basis. For example, someone who claims to be calling from your bank does not need to know your mothers maiden name if its already on file with the bank. C Check your financial information periodically. If you get hard-copy credit card or bank statements mailed to you, consider keeping these documents in a safe, secure location. Be skeptical if it appears the financial institution missed a month. Identity thieves may try to change the address on your accounts to keep their actions hidden from you for as long as possible. A From time to time, ask for a copy of your credit report. This report shows bank and financial accounts in your name and may help provide evidence if someone has used your name to open another account. To obtain a report, contact any of the three major credit bureaus, Equifax, Experian, or Transunion. M Maintain good records of your financial accounts and obligations. Experts recommend that you keep hard copies or electronic versions of monthly bank and credit card statements. Easy access to this information may make it easier to dispute a transaction, especially if your signature has been forged. Recent trends indicate that government agencies, credit card companies, and individuals have become smarter about protecting personal information and identifying perpetrators. Nevertheless, having your identity stolen may result in out-of-pocket financial loss, plus the additional cost of trying to restore your good name. Help protect yourself by using caution when sharing your personal information and keeping an eye out for warning signs.

Do you eat Dates? Dates?, What's that? You know, the red orange fruit that grows on the Palm trees. No, I never had one, and I didn't know that you could eat them. This is the typical response from anyone under the age of 30. But ask the same of most anyone who grew up in the 1960's or 70's in a small southern town, and the response is usually one of smiles and the look of delight as the memory of the sweet tart like taste, brings back thoughts of yesteryear, days gone by. A time when things were simple and uncluttered. Kids played outside, and rode bikes, and if you didn't have your own, you'd sit on the handle bars or hop on back to hitch a ride. We played dodge ball, or kick ball, neighborhood basketball, or football games. We played ping pong, shot marbles, played hide and seek. Summers were great, lled with activity and adventures to discover outside, it was never too hot, and we used our imagination and our ingenuity. We had horsey on a stick, the invisible dog. We used to tie balloons onto the bike forks and let them rub against the spokes on the wheel to sound like a motorcycle. The fair would come to town. We had dirt streets and the Dates grew on Palm trees in the cemetery. Every summer, we'd take bike rides to Sunset Cemetery to see if the Dates were ready. We didn't want to miss them as other people were waiting and watching for them too. I wondered why I never saw them for sale in the grocery store, but anywhere we went and we saw them, we wanted them. Most of the time, we'd rinse them off and eat them right then, chewing the juicy brous pulp until all the avor was gone, then spit them out and bite into another. Sometimes we put salt on them and enjoyed a sweet, tangy, salty avor. We didn't know about Date jelly, wine, or preserves.We ate them fresh off of the ground after they'd fallen or actually pulled the cluster from the tree and ate them one by one. We never had the dried ones, only the fresh ones. I wondered where they'd come from. Turns out, there are many varieties of Dates and Palm trees. For our purposes, we'll keep it simple and just focus on the particular variety that I grew up on and continue to enjoy today, except that now I don't have to go to the cemetery to get them. I have a Date tree at my house. Its been here for all of the 23 years that I've lived here. I don't do anything special to it, but each year, around July and August, it produces Dates abundantly. I hate to see them go to waste, so I pick them, wash them off, bag and refrigerate them, and give them to anyone who savor the avor of this wonderful fruit, and there are many that do. I love to see their faces light up when I hand them a bag lled with plump, juicy, ripe Dates. "How much are they" They're free. no charge! "Really, Thanks, I really appreciate this", and sometimes I get a story of how they used to eat them when they were kids. Such a simple gesture, the gift of a bag of Dates, can bring a warm feeling of joy, a simple kindness, that's absolutely priceless. I recommend that you try it, especially if you have a Date tree, or fruit tree of any sort. Don't let them go to waste. Pick them up, rinse them off, bag and refrigerate them and give them away to any who will appreciate them. The feeling of joy that comes from giving, instead of receiving will be priceless. I searched the internet for a picture of the type of Dates that we have here in South Georgia, but I didn't see the particular variety, so I called Dasher's Nursery and the gentleman told me that we have the Pindo Date Palm. So I googled Pindo Date Palm and I saw a picture that looks like our Dates. They are either Pindo or Queen Palm Dates.They are very similar to each other, except the Queen Palms fruit, when ripe is always orange to red in color, like the ones I have, and the Pindo Palm fruit however is always yellow and when ripe, is very yellow, but not orange. Yep, mine are more orange and red orange, so they are Queen Palm Dates.( the internet was not invented when I was a child, we used encyclopedias! Remember them?) These palms are a common landscape plant in Florida and Georgia cemeteries and in the south in general and most owners will gladly give you the fruit since it does create quite a mess on lawns and in yards. Eating the Date is similar to eating Sugar Cane, in that it is tasty, but very brous. Some people can swallow the ber, but most just chew it to get the juice and avor out of it, then spit the pulp out.It reminds me of a peach and a nectarine put together, kind of sweet and tangy tart. But most of all eating Dates remind me of days gone, but certainly not forgotten. We're blessed to still be here, many others are not, and the Dates?, well they're still here too. So when you see a Date tree, try one, and discover what you've been missing.

Our military had to absorb $80 billion in prior cuts and is now cutting $487 billion over 10 years to comply with the Budget Control Act. The $487 billion in cuts translates into the Army reducing its forces by 80,000 soldiers over the next ve years. The Marines will cut 20,000 troops. Other cuts include early retirement of ships with the possibility of having 11 carrier battle groups instead of the 12 needed; the retirement of the Air Force A-10 Warthog aircraft; and the possible closure of our only tank production facility in Lima, Ohio. These cuts are occurring while leaving the Pentagons civilian workforce of 750,000 unscathed. DOD added 62,000 civilians during the past four years. If the additional $500 billion in sequestration cuts are implemented, over 1 million civilian full-time jobs with contractors, sub-contractors and ancillary businesses will be lost. The unemployment rate could increase 0.5% to 1.0% and the U.S. Gross Domestic Product could decrease by $85 billion.

6Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, August 16, 2013Farm/Outdoors On Aug, 12, Lee Dixon, a resident of Madison County, received recognition from the Florida Forest Service through the Forest Stewardship Program for the hard work she has put into her 50-acre forested property located in Hamilton County. Through her forest management efforts, she has qualied to have her property recognized as a Certied Stewardship Forest. She received an engraved Forest Stewardship Plaque, and also a Forest Stewardship Sign to display on her property. The Dixon property is located on the bank of the Withlacoochee River and is currently being managed in a way that integrates timber management, wildlife habitat, recreation, aesthetics, and soil and water conservation. She maintains relines ar ound the property, which was replanted in Longleaf Pines in 2012. She has put a lot of time and effort into getting her land into its present condition and is to be commended for her efforts. The Forest Stewardship program recognizes forest landowners who manage their property in a sustainable manner through multiple management objectives. These objectives may include timber management, wildlife management, recreation, aesthetics, grazing, soil and water conservation, and other objectives a landowner may have. Anyone interested in learning more about the Forest Stewardship Program can contact the Florida Forest Service Hamilton County Forester, Greg Staten, at 386-792-1269. Madison County Resident Has Hamilton County Property Forest Stewardship CertifiedBy Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. The number of wildres in Madison County went down this season, Butch Galbraith and Tanner Greene told the Madison Kiwanis Club, where they were recently guest speakers. The month of May got a little dry and a little hairy, but overall, the wet, rainy summer has helped keep wildre numbers low. Galbraith and Greene, of the Division of Forestry, serve a district that actually covers four counties, including Taylor, Lafayette, Dixie and Madison, a rather large stretch of territory, where their mission includes protection of many acres from wildres, responsible stewardship of Floridas forestry resources, (including the use of controlled burns as a re management tool,) and assisting local timber farmers in managing their resources. Galbraith gave a quick rundown on the number of wildres in Madison this year. Some of them were signicant, like the two lightening res in May that involved 26 acres, but quick response time kept them contained. Others, like wildres caused by campres, incendiaries, equipment and so forth, were way down because of wet, rainy conditions that prevailed during most of the season. This year, there were no res caused by children. But if it quit raining right now, those numbers would quadruple right quick, said Galbraith. The Department of Forestry also issues burn pile authorizations for people who need to do large-scale seasonal burning, land clearing, or burn off an area for agricultural purposes. This year, 1638 burn authorizations were issued for Madison. Galbraith and Greene also conducted 33 re prevention education programs this year, programs that often included Smokey the Bear putting in appearances at elementary schools, 4-H Clubs and other childrens organizations. When it comes to services provided to Madison County residents, the Forestry Service can provide landowners with assistance in identifying tree and insect species with the help of certied forestry agent Justin Kania. Last year, USFS provided 580 such assists on 14,000 acres. The Department of Forestry can also provide assistance for landowners who need help establishing re lines or rebreaks on their property before burning. Occasionally, they do have to write notices of burn violations, a misdemeanor, But usually, we try to educate folks (about safe re practices) way before we get to that point. For the average county resident who wants to burn yard waste, the rst rule of thumb is to call the US Forestry Service and make sure conditions will allow burning on that day. The burn pile cannot exceed eight feet in diameter, and it must be set back at least 25 feet from your home, 150 feet from any other homes, 50 feet from any paved public roads, and 25 feet from any wildlands, brush or other combustible structures. Other outdoor burning requirements include: NEVER leave your re unattended NEVER burn on windy days Keep a water hose and shovel handy in case your re escapes Make sure your re is COMPLETLY out before you leave Also, peat moss res like the ones that sometimes are up at San Pedro Bay are a worst nightmare scenario for the forestry service; smoldering peat moss res are almost impossible to put out, and they create a lot of smoke. If a county resident ever wants to burn off the muck from a dried-up pond, make sure you plow a re break around it.

On Tuesday, Aug. 24, Senator Claude Pepper will address a luncheon meeting sponsored by the Lions Club and the Madison County Chamber of Commerce. Second Lt. James P. Pat Millinor while here on a furlough from Indiantown Gap, Pa., was notified of his promotion to first lieutenant. Second Lt. Madison Crawford Leslie has been promoted to be a First Lieutenant. August 14, 1953 Frank Green of Gainesville, son of Mrs. A.F. Green of Madison, recently won distinction as a leading realtor of the state when he was elected to membership in the Institute of Real Estate Management. Bobby Jacobs, formerly of Madison, is now a radio announcer for WXUL at Cullman, Ala. Mr. and Mrs. W.C. Sevor of Lee received word that their son, Pfc. Willie C. Sevor, Jr., will be returned home from overseas. Pfc. Sevor was wounded while serving with the U.S. Armed Forces in Korea on June 13. A representative of Dr. Posners shoes, a specialist on fitting childrens feet with correct shoes, will be at the Brocks Childrens Shop in Madison on Saturday, Sept. 5. August 16, 1963 Miss Catherine Smith received her B.S. degree at FSU in June. Graduating in June were Miss Emily Burnett, Miss Toni Jean Wells and Miss Connie Pepera. Charlie Wynn, well-known butcher, is now in charge of the meat department at Hendrys IGA Store on South Duval Street and invites all his friends to come by and see him. Mr. and Mrs. Carroll Lance of Tallahassee announce the birth of a son, Allen Matthew, on Aug. 7. Mrs. Lance is the former Nencie Bevan of Madison. Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Fuqua of Hawkinsville, Ga., have been guests of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W.T. Coody for several days. Brother Gabe used as his text, John 1:43-51, The Calling of Nathanael. Setting: Edge of Jewish territory, Galilee, district of foreigners; Characters: Philip, Nathanael, and Jesus; Plot: Philip, who had just become one of Jesus followers, found Nathanael to tell him that he had discovered the Messiah. Although Nathanael was skeptical, he did go with Philip to meet Jesus. It turns out that Jesus knew Nathanael had been under the fig tree, possibly praying or reading the Scripture. Jesus paid a compliment to Nathanael in verse 47 and proceeded to issue this command, Follow me. Imitate me, do what I do. Anticlimax: In verse 49, Nathanael proclaimed who Jesus is. Climax: Verses 50-51 tell us that Nathanael is about to be a participant in an explosion (1) that the heavens will open up ministering to the Son of Man (2) as Jesus lives the next three years of His life. Conclusion: We are to look for Jesus and take His message to a lost and dying world.

The Worship Choir sang Enter This House as their special that reflects what Jesus said was His calling in Luke 4: 18-19, The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD. Here are the words to the song, The weak and the wounded, the prisoner, the free. Preachers and poets can sit at His feet. Come struggler, come lonely, exhausted and worn, hearts that are broken, find shelter from the storm. Enter this house, enter this house. Youre free to come in. Enter this place, this Holy place. Grace isnt worried where your heart has been. Enter this house. The intimate friendship, the peace in this place is the love of a people won back by His grace. Come into the presence of the One who restores, wayward, Hes waiting, dont wait anymore. Enter this house, enter this house, Youre free to come in. Enter this place, this Holy place, Grace isnt worried where your heart has been, Enter this house. Words by Rose Aspinall.
