Madison County High School will have to wait to get their school grade and Greenville Elementary School will not be graded this year. The high school will receive their grade in December, around the Christmas season. Greenville's grade was put on hold this year because of a decrease in student population.

Greenville City Hall hosts its voting drive the second Monday of each month from 9 a.m. until noon, and the next one is Sept. 9. The one in Lee is at Lee Town Hall, also from 9 a.m. until noon, held the second Friday of every month. The next one coming up is Friday, Sept. 13. Voter Drives Coming Up Next WeekBy Lazaro Aleman Greene Publishing, Inc.Florida's jobless rate held steady at 7.1 percent in July, making for the third consecutive month of the lowest rate since September 2008, when it was 7.0 percent. The US unemployment rate, meanwhile, was 7.4 percent in July, 0.2 percentage point lower than June's rate of 7.6 percent. Madison and Jefferson counties, on the other hand, experienced slight increases in their unemployment rates in July, from 6.3 and 9.6 percents and 6.2 and 9.4 percents to respectively. This comes from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (FDEO), which released its latest unemployment report on Friday, Aug. 16. Statewide, the 7.1 percent represents 665,000 jobless Floridians out of a labor force of 9,404,000 -not counting individuals who have given up the search for work or are underemployed or employed part time. The FDEO reports Florida's seasonally adjusted total nonagricultural employment was 7,521,900 in July, an increase of 9,300 jobs over the month. Seasonally adjusted means the numbers have been purged of seasonal and other factors that could skew the results. For Madison County, the 9.6 percent translates into 679 jobless persons out of a labor force of 7,093 in July, compared with 670 jobless personsFloridas Jobless Rate Holds Steady At 7.1%By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.At the County Commission's rst public budget hearing Wednesday evening, Court Clerk Tim Sanders presented several sets of budget gures for the coming scal year (FY) 2013-2014, and several pages listing county revenues and expenditures for the past year, and transfers of funds made to some budgets to meet unexpected expenses, most of which were increased payments to employee retirement funds mandated by the state of Florida. Madison County has an estimated $624,848,939 worth of taxable property, an amount that has declined over the last several years since the $722,030,733 that formed the budget basis for FY08, when the millage rate was 8.0820. The rate has slowly increased since then, as taxable property amounts fell to $700,497,626 the following year, then $659,495,578 the year after that. For the last few years it has wavered between approximately $612 and $614 million. The budget proposal Sanders presented for the next scal year, after budget cuts to various departments, including cutbacks on operating hours for the solid waste department, transfers to offset some the unexpected mandates and other expenditures, leaving two positions vacant and not hiring a replacement for a part-timer who left, was based on a tax rate of 10 mils. It was a budget, he said, that had been put together after nearly two months of crunching numbers by several individuals. They started with a beginning decit of nearly $910,000 and worked up a balanced budget based on a 10 mil tax rate, as well as numerous charts and graphs showing what the county's budget picture would look like if the current millage rate of 9.6964 remained unchanged, as well as how it would look like with incremental increases of 9.7916 and 9.876, all the way up to 10. "A lot of work went into this," said Sanders, who recommended the 10 mils rate and the balanced budget created based on the projected revenue for FY 2013-14. "We especially appreciate what the Sheriff's department has given up to help us come up with this." After some subdued discussion, County Commission Chair Wayne Vickers opened the meeting to public input for anyone who wanted to comment on the proceedings or ask questions about the budget and the new proposed rate. However, not many people were in the audience and no one asked to address the commission, so the vote was called. The commission voted 5-0 to adopt the tentative new millage rate of 10 mils, and the tentative budget based on ten mils for the scal year 20132014. At this stage, however, everything is still tentative; there is one more public hearing before any nal budget decision can be made, and that is scheduled for Monday evening, Sept. 16, at 5:30 p.m. in the court house annex. Members of the public are invited to attend.County Commission Adopts Tentative 10 Mils BudgetBy Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc. Areplacement bridge at the Madison County-Lowndes County, Ga., line on the Valdosta Highway will be opened next August. The new bridge will be waterproof and it will replace the one that is currently in use north of Pinetta. Besides being prone to going under water from oods such as the one that put it under in 2009, the new one will be wider, higher and longer. The original bridge was built in 1941 at a time when narrow bridges were the norm. Over time, cars, pickups, farm equipment and semi-trucks have taken their toll on the historic bridge and travelers will be happy to welcome the new road. The bridge is being built at a cost of $5,400,000.00 and is a joint effort between the Florida and Georgia Departments of Transportation. New Bridge To Be WaterproofBy Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.School Board members at the Sept. 3 meeting spent much of the time discussing matters related to the Madison County Excel School, much of it focusing on establishing a transition policy for moving students back to their home schools once they have completed a required period of time at Madison Excel and met all the criteria for transfer. At a previous school board meeting in August, Sam Stalnaker, Coordinator of Career, Technical/Alternative Education, had outlined three options for such a policy, stating that he favored the rst option on the list and recommending it as the one to go with. However, school board members delayed a vote at that time because some of the members protested that they had been given the information just before the meeting began, too late for a thorough review of the policy details. At the Tuesday night meeting, the matter was taken up again. Stalnaker once more reviewed the rst option on the list and recommended its adoption as the new transition policy, because it allowed for the best match-up of the student's grades, credits and coursework in transferring back to his or her home school. School board member VeEtta Hagan questioned the semi-annual review clause, asking if that wasn't too long to wait before a child's case for transfer would come up for consideration. Fellow board member Kenny Hall stated that the semi-annual review was only at the start, and the district would be working toward a 45-day review period. If a parent and child wanted to move back into the home school before then, they had a right to appear before the school board and present their case. "This is about the good of the child, not about power," said Hagan. "We've got to be concerned about our children. We've got to be concerned about our county." She further stated that she thought the policy was taking away too much power from the parents, and worried that keeping a basically good child who had made a mistake in an alternative setting too long might have detrimental effects. "We want all the power and all the control over our children and their parents." Board member Karen Pickles, on the other hand, said that sheMadison Excel School Dominates School Board Meeting Sam Stalnaker addresses the school board regarding a transition policy that would streamline transfers for Madison Excel students back to their home schools.

I think of all the things I still need to do and I tell the Sandman to go away and leave me alone, but he throws more sand in my eyes. I am tired and the tiredness threatens to shroud me in blankets and clouds of slumber, but I remain awake, once again wondering how I will be able to accomplish all that I need to accomplish and still be able to do the things I WANT to do. I think of a poem by Robert Frost with the line “Miles to go before I sleep.” I think of the weary traveler on the road in the poem. I think of weary truck drivers out traveling between the white lines on the highways and how they have miles to go before they sleep. I think of people who are weary of life but still have miles to go before they sleep. Isn’t it wonderful, though, that God has given us the ability to feel tired and know when we need sleep? When we do get those precious few hours of dreams, isn’t it great to wake up refreshed from hopefully a pleasant night’s sleep? Isn’t it great that when we have heartaches that we can sleep and for a few hours at least they go away? Isn’t it great that when we have pain that we can sleep and not be conscious of hurting? When we thank God for blessings in our lives, do we ever stop and thank Him that He gave us sleep. 2Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, September 6, 2013 The MadisonEnterprise-Recorder PublisherEmerald GreeneSenior Staff WriterJacob BembryStaff WritersLynette Norris, Rose KleinGraphic DesignersTori Self, Steven Godfrey Advertising Sales RepresentativesJeanette DunnBookeeperBrooke KinsleyClassified and Legal AdsCheltsie KinsleyDeadline for classi“eds is Monday at 3 p.m.Deadline for legal advertisements is Wednesday at 5 p.m. There will be a $7 charge for affidavits.Circulation DepartmentSheree MillerSubscription Rates:In-County $35 Out-of-County $45 E-Edition $25 ($5 add on to existing subscription) (State & local taxes included)Since 1865 -Telling it like it is with honesty and integrity.ŽThe Madison The Madison Enterprise-Recorder Enterprise-RecorderMadison Recorder established 1865 New Enterprise established 1901 Consolidated June 25, 1908 Published weekly by Greene Publishing Inc., 1695 S SR 53, Madison, FL 32340.

Jail Report Conservative Corner Conservative Corner By Claudia Anderson Madison County… September is National Food Safety Month, a campaign of the Partnership for Food Safety Education with the goal of teaching consumers about food safety and safe food handling. It’s hard to convince people their daily food handling practices may be putting their family at risk for food-borne illness. You can’t see, taste or smell bacteria that cause what we commonly call food poisoning. There are many different bacteria responsible for food borne illnesses and they are all invisible to the human eye. Most people dismiss food illness as a 24 hour bug and it often goes unreported. Each year, there is an estimated 76 million cases of food-borne illness in the United States, with approximately 325,000 people being hospitalized. These statistics are the reason USDA and the Partnership for Food Safety Education wants consumers to follow the four steps of food preparation to prevent food-borne illness in your home. 1. Clean everything! -Cleanliness is a major factor in preventing food-borne illness. Anything that touches food should be clean. Wash your hands, often; before you prepare food and after you contact raw meat, poultry, seafood and eggs. If you answer the phone, help your child with homework or pet the dog, wash your hands before you resume cooking. Make sure countertops, utensils, and all food preparation surfaces are frequently cleaned. 2. Keep Foods Separate -The concern here is cross-contamination. Harmful bacteria from raw meats poultry and sh can be left on cutting boards and utensils then transferred to other foods. For example, you cut up raw poultry and then slice vegetables for a salad without washing the cutting board. You have contaminated the salad with bacteria that can cause illness. 3. Use a food thermometer -You can’t tell food is cooked safely by a visual check. A food thermometer allows you to determine the internal temperature of a food which will determine if the food is completely cooked. Harmful bacteria, like Salmonella or E coli, are destroyed at certain temperatures and there are different recommended temperatures for different foods. USDA recommends steaks and roasts and sh need to be cooked to an internal temperature of 145F, pork and ground beef and egg dishes to 160F, chicken breast to 170F and whole poultry to 180F. 4. Use the 2 hour rule --Chill leftovers within two hours of cooking. Most people are under the false impression that food needs to be at room temperature before it is put into the refrigerator, but that is not the case. The Danger Zone -temperatures between 40 and 140 F, is unsafe because harmful bacteria grow rapidly. Food left to cool on the countertop is in this temperature range for a long time! A large quantity of food, like soup or a casserole should be stored in several smaller containers and placed in different areas of the refrigerator to promote rapid cooling. Placing a large container of hot food or stacking several smaller containers on top of each other in the refrigerator will slow the cooling process. This also keeps food in the danger zone for an extended period of time, increasing the growth of bacteria. Following the four recommendations offered by the National Food Safety Education Partnership will help you keep your food safe to eat and drastically reduce your family’s risk of food-borne illness. For more information on food safety, contact the Madison County Extension Service. The University of Florida Extension – Madison County is an Equal Employment Opportunity Institution. MAKE FOOD SAFETY A PRIORITYThe Business Of EducationIt seems that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has invested "TONS" of money into controlling what is happening in the "business of education.” Some are even referring to the Department of Education as the Department of Bill Gates. He and his wife are deeply involved in the United Nations Agenda 21 movement for a One World Government or New World Order, which has a strong focus on education as a means to indoctrinate our young people into the world-citizen mindset while diminishing family and national loyalties. It seems that much (if not all) of the money invested by the Gates Foundation in this "business of education,” will be resulting in benets for Microsoft and other pre-determined vendors. The Common Core Standards, being shoved down our throats like a dog receiving worm medication, requires computers and software written I wonder by whom. When the Common Core Standards package, written by someone who is not an educator, and funded by Bill Gates, is provided to states, they will be required to purchase computers, Gates software and other items for storing and managing the personal and educational information on each child (and their family). Like rats following the Pied Piper, states have hungrily focused on grant money and signed on to Common Core, sight unseen, with much of the material still in the development stage (still by non educators) and to be in use next year. Once this is in control of our local "education business,” where do you go with problems, questions, needed changes, etc? ZIP! (iddy-doo-da). AND WHO WILL PAY for all those computers, software, etc. after the grants run out? I also wonder If or WHEN all those computers go ofine, hopefully only temporarily, how will anyone be able to function in the classroom? Jeb Bush and his Foundation for Excellence in Education, in a partnership with Gates and his foundation, are already strongly pushing for an increase in Charter Schools, which apparently are without much (if any) oversight by local school boards as to curriculum or textbooks being used, where outside funding is acquired or what politicians might have a monetary interest in the Charter School portion of the business of education. Together, it seems that they, Bush and Gates, are in a position to take over the educational delivery and content. WHOA! Bump in the road for Common Core! Representative Debbie Mayeld from District 54, Vero Beach, just led HR 25 which will require that certain studies be made regarding some dubious points and meetings held in each congressional district so that some unknowns are uncovered and we citizens are allowed some involvement in the process. This is not a party or left/right issue. It is a freedom/control issue. Are the children to be stuffed into a one size ts all inescapable experiment? In 1934 NEA former Executive Secretary Willard Givens stated, "The major function of the school is the social orientation of the individual. It must seek to give him the understanding of the transition to the New social order." Hmmm. Any relation to Gates and Bush? HR 25 Call Halsey Beshears 850-717-5007 to cosponsor, Gov. Scott 850-448-7146 and Speaker Will Weatherford 813-588-5115, to support. Call Senate President Don Gaetz 850-890-5745 for a companion bill.

By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.Deloris Jones appeared before the County Commission to speak on behalf of Madison County’s Senior Citizens, “of which I am proud to be one,” she stated with enthusiasm. In light of some deep funding cuts at the state and county level for the Senior Citizen’s Council, Jones told the board, “We don’t weep – we just go on and do something else to help our seniors...and we need help.” The something else is the “Choirs Rejoice In Song” event, at Pineland Missionary Baptist Church, Sept. 14 at 6 p.m., a time of fellowship, rejoicing and fundraising on behalf of Madison’s seniors. All proceeds from the event will go to support programs provided by the Senior Citizen’s Council of Madison, Inc., and Elder Care Services, Inc., that help seniors live independently and age in place with dignity. Jones invited the commissioners and the community to pledge their nancial support by coming out to the “Choirs Rejoice In Song” fundraiser. Rosa Richardson, executive director of the Senior Citizen’s Council, added that, “You (commissioners) have supported us for the 21 years I’ve been with the agency, and we thank you.” For more information on the event, contact Deloris Jones at (850) 973-2823.From Page One Madison Enterprise-Recorder 3 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, September 6, 2013 World NewsBy Rose Klein Who Said Lying Doesnt PayIn Berlin, Germany, Patrick Ulmer owns a lying business and his services range from sending deceptive text messages to helping unfaithful spouses live double lives. Ulmer’s business, sometimes referred to as an “alibi agency,” helps people to create lies to conceal truths from family, friends and employers. Some of his basic services include sending phony text messages, booking phony vacations and maintaining a false address with mail service. Ulmer said one of his more large-scale clients pays an annual fee for the agency to maintain a fake apartment in Cologne, Germany, where his client claims to work for part of the year, to conceal a double life that includes two wives, who live in different cities in Switzerland. Ulmer says there are times he visits the apartment as the client’s co-worker when one of the women come to visit him at the false residence. “Tatort,” a popular crime drama in Germany, featured a ctional company that offered services such as Ulmer’s, but on a larger scale. The show caused Ulmer’s business to spike sharply. He recently expanded, by starting a branch in Austria.Baby Delivered In Mothers DressIn Lithonia, Ga., Katrena Leonard of Gwinnett County, said she delivered her own baby while on the way to the hospital. Leonard’s husband, Terrance, drove more than 80 mph to get to the DeKalb Medical Center in Lithonia, but was about four minutes too late. The new mother caught the newborn, Kylie Rose, in the bottom of her dress. “The nurses and everyone was down there and they didn’t believe the baby was there. All of a sudden they say, She’s got the baby. All Kylie was doing was just looking at her mom like, ‘I’m here’,” said Terrance. Kylie’s pediatrician, Dr. Fiona Blair, said the girl was a healthy newborn and looks awesome. “We had a wild, wild ride,” Leonard said.Streaker Gets Stun GunnedIn Chicago, Ill., Tom Carideo was driving to pick up his kids near Union Park, when he noticed a naked man that was, “running in circles naked as the day he was born,” Carideo said. “Then he looks at my car and goes into a full-out sprint and jumps, landing (butt) rst on the right side of my windshield and shatters it.” Carideo says he armed himself with a hockey stick, called 911 and reported to the dispatcher the man was now bleeding from his buttocks. While Carideo was on the phone with the dispatcher, he followed the man in his car and reported that the naked man danced in the middle of an intersection and drank water from a puddle in the street. Carideo said police had to use a stun gun to subdue him. Police say they suspect the man was under the inuence of a hallucinogenic substance at the time of his arrest.Chicken Swallows Diamond EarringIn Reading, England, Claire Lennon of Berkshire County, lost one of her diamond earrings when a pet chicken snatched it off her ear. The chicken, Sarah, was perched on Lennon’s shoulder when she took the earring and now has the piece of jewelry trapped in her stomach. “The vet said he could operate to recover the earring, but that might kill Sarah, which would devastate our 6-year-old daughter, Mia, who dotes on the chicken,” says Lennon. “So we’ll have to wait until Sarah gets old and dies, but they live to a ripe old age. We ar e prob ably looking at another eight years before I get my earring back.” Grades Cont. From Page 1and fth grades. Due to a decline in enrollment, the school did not have enough students for the test to be administered. Earlier, the school grades were released for Lee Elementary School, Pinetta Elementary School and Madison County Central School. Both Lee and Pinetta received B grades, down from A last year, and the Central School received an F. The scores are based on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) among other variables. This year, James Madison Preparatory School ninth graders will be subject to take the FCAT. Jobless Rates Cont. From Page 1out of a labor force of 7,118 in June, when the rate was 9.4 percent. In July 2012, the comparable gures were 802 jobless persons out of a labor force of 7,328, when the unemployment rate was 10.9 percent. For Jefferson County, the 6.3 percent rate translates into 412 jobless persons out of a labor force of 6,564 in July, compared with 405 jobless persons out of a labor force of 6,529 in June, when the rate was 6.2 percent. In July 2012, the comparable gures were 568 jobless persons out of a workforce of 6,564 when the unemployment rate was 8.7 percent. The FDEO report indicates that the industry gaining the most jobs continues to be trade, transportation and utilities, up 53,800; followed by leisure and hospitality, up 25,600 jobs; professional and business services, up 24,200; private education and health services, up 20,500 jobs; construction, up 15,700 jobs; nancial activities, up 7,700 jobs; other services, up 2,300 jobs; and information, up 1,900 jobs. The industries losing jobs over the year continue to be total government, down 6,000 jobs, and manufacturing, down 2,100 jobs. Monroe and Walton counties had the state’s lowest unemployment rate at 4.2 percent, followed by Okaloosa County at 5.1 percent; Franklin County at 5.5; and St. Johns County at 5.6 percent. Hendry County continues to have the state’s highest unemployment rate at 15.5 percent, followed by Flagler and St. Lucie counties at 10.4 percent; Putnam County at 10.4 percent; and Indian River County at 9.7 percent. Four counties had double-digit jobless gures in July, up from three in June. Madison Excel Cont. From Page 1had issues with anything less than a semester-long period of review, because a shorter time period could cause the child to lose credit for coursework he or she had completed while at Excel. “As an educator, that bothers me,” she said. “They’ll lose all that work.” “What you’ve learned, nobody can take away from you,” said Hagan. Stalnaker appealed to the board to give him the time he needed to get through this school year, get the transfer process going and put the foundation in place. Superintendent Doug Brown added the district did not yet have the online tech support to keep the students perfectly matched up with the coursework in their home schools. “Right now we just don’t have the mechanism in place,” he said. In the meantime, the district needed a transfer policy that could take that into account without leaving too big a gap in the student’s school credits. In the meantime, the student and parents still had the right to come before the superintendent and school board and appeal for an earlier transfer, if the student was doing well in the alternative setting and meeting requirements. Some board members still had reservations when the item came to a vote, however, and the transfer policy was approved 3-2. The issue came to the forefront once again during the public input segment, when several community members addressed the board on behalf of students now attending Excel. Local attorney Ernie Page addressed the board about the new policy, saying that he had represented students at Excel in the past, all of whom were able to transition successfully back to their home schools, and he was still representing other Excel students and their families. With tonight’s vote, he asked if he would still be able to petition for a client’s transfer back to the home school. Board member Kenny Hall assured him that there would always be the right to come before the board and appeal. Other community members came forward to speak on behalf of another student at Excel, including a concerned relative and the assistant pastor at the young man’s church. The assistant pastor stated that the young man knew he had made a mistake and was working hard with his church family and counselors to correct it, attending numerous church services, counseling and prayer sessions. She asked that the board members also pray about the matter as they considered the young man’s case. “We are working diligently with him,” she told the board. “We want to make proud citizens of Madison County...God is raising up a nation that will obey Him.” The uncle also addressed the board, asking, “If God can forgive us, how can we not forgive someone else? Are we here to help the kid or to hurt him? He’s a good kid, but he’s discouraged.” The uncle added that the young man had admitted that he had done wrong. “We all make mistakes...he has made one mistake. I’m asking the board to take that into consideration and do the right thing...God knows all things. God answers all prayers.” After a fourth community member who had signed up for the public input section declined to speak, the board, with no other items on the agenda, adjourned. Road Work Cont. From Page 1planned, so those interested are encouraged to stop by anytime. The improvements include reconstructing and widening the State Road 53 and U.S. 90 intersection by adding left turn lanes on State Road 53 for trafc turning east and west onto U.S. 90. A concrete trafc separator will also be constructed on U.S. 90. Other construction activities include rebuilding the retaining wall in the northeast corner, replacing the trafc signals and poles and adding pedestrian countdown signals. Sidewalk improvements are also included along State Road 53 between Rutledge and Livingston streets to meet current safety standards. Trafc shifts will be necessary while the intersection and State Road 53 are widened. Motorists should be aware of changing trafc patterns during construction. Daytime lane closures after 8:30 a.m. weekdays will occur. More than 11,000 vehicles travel each day on U.S. 90 near State Road 53 and of those, eight percent are classied as heavy-duty trucks while more than 6,000 vehicles travel each day on State Road 53 near U.S. 90 with 20 percent classied as heavy-duty trucks.

The signs says he is an idiot for making 911 calls threatening police. Richard Dameron, 58, threatened police during 911 calls and then skipped out on his punishment. Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Pinkey Carr ordered him to hold a sign this week outside of the Second District police station in Cleveland. The sign reads, in part: "I was being an idiot and it will never happen again." He told Carr he couldn't show up to his last court appearance because he didn't have a ride. WKYC-TV

For many Americans, financial life seems to be getting more and more complicated. Perhaps thats because more workers bear responsibility for their own retirement savings thanks to the proliferation of 401(k) and other plans. Or maybe its because theres so much information and so many investment choices to sort through. Whatever the case, here are some suggestions that may help to simplify your financial life. 1 S t a r t w i t h a P l a n A little time spent planning now can benefit you later. First, determine short-term financial goals. Do you want to purchase a home in five years? Are your kids heading off to college soon? Is buying a car a top priority next year? Next, think about long-term goals, such as saving for retirement and, if your children are young, college expenses. Estimate how much money youll need to meet each of these goals. 2 B u i l d a B e t t e r B u d g e t Next, look at your current monthly net income and then set up a budget. Creating a budget allows you to see exactly where all your money goes and to determine where you can scale back. After making cuts, invest that money to help pursue your financial goals. 3 I n v e s t S y s t e m a t i c a l l y You can take time and guesswork out of investing with a systematic investing program. With mutual funds, for example, you can make arrangements to automatically invest a specific amount of money on a regular (e.g., monthly) basis, a strategy also known as dollar cost averaging.* In addition to making investing easier, dollar cost averaging could potentially save you money. Youll buy more shares when prices are low and fewer shares when theyre high. Over time, the average cost you pay for the shares may be less than the average price. 4 R e l y o n a n I n v e s t m e nt P r o f e s s i o n a l While the financial world is far more complex than it was just a few years ago, you dont have to go it alone. Think about tapping into your investment professionals expertise before making any major change in your investments. He or she can help you to evaluate how new tax rules and changing market conditions may affect your portfolio and, in turn, your financial goals. Dollar cost averaging involves regular, periodic investments in securities regardless of price levels. You should consider your financial ability to continue purchasing shares through periods of high and low prices. This plan does not assure a profit and does not protect against loss in declining markets.

July 30 Aug. 3 Florida 4-H CongressMadison County was represented by three youth this year with approximately 300 more senior 4-H youth (ages 14-18) from across the state that gathered at the University of Florida for a week of community service, topic specic courses in the areas of SET (science, engineering and technology), Healthy Lifestyles and Leadership/Citizenship workshops and activities, along with state level competitive events. 4-H state ofcers are also elected during this event. Sarah Baltzell was the outgoing State Reporter and we are proud to announce she will be serving as the 2013-2014 State Historian. This week of 4-H is a great opportunity for senior youth to socialize with other youth across the state and explore the UF campus and its offerings in a safe environment.6Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, September 6, 2013Around Madison County 4-H Florida Congress United Way Kicks Off In Madison CountyBy Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc.The Madison County team for the United Way started their campaign with a kickoff breakfast last Wednesday, compliments of Shelby's Restaurant. Mark Buescher, the United Way Madison County (UWMC) Chairman, along with a room full of Madison representatives, discussed past contributions and upcoming goals for the year. The rst order of business was to set a campaign goal. In setting a monetary goal, the largest concern was the fact of nationwide charitable contributions being down. The nal decision, however, was unanimous to keep the goal high at $110,000 because the team is optimistic about receiving donations here in Madison. With their goal set, the group discussion turned towards getting individuals and businesses involved. The United Way of Big Bend (UWBB), Campaign Associate, Megan Picht, and Vice-President of Resource Development, Sarah Deeb, both from Tallahassee, were present to help the team with ideas and campaign materials. Everyone agreed on the importance of getting the message of, local money staying local, and that 100 percent of the money donated by Madison residents goes directly to Madison County Agencies, was key. In addition, it would be helpful for those giving to know that the United Way Madison County team is made completely of volunteers and that no administrative cost will be incurred. The nal statement that ended the meeting, made by Mark Buescher, was to help people realize that by everyone giving a little, not anyone person giving a lot, is how the United Way team here in Madison can reach their goal. As a service to Madison County residents and the United Way, Greene Publishing, Inc. will be spotlighting one Madison County Agency each week during the Madison County United Way Madison campaign. We hope this information will help in choosing how you, as an individual or as a business, will allocate your contribution spending. Remember, the money you donate in Madison County, stays in Madison County. See Spotlight on page 7. Greene Publishing, Inc.

By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.Since 1959, the Artist Series at North Florida Community College has been bringing a variety of shows and performers from all over the country to its auditorium, and over the years, its NFCC budget has grown from $400 to $20,000, supplemented by community sponsors, performing arts grants and proceeds from ticket sales. This year, all seating will be reserved seating instead of partially reserved and partially general seating, said NFCC’s Kim Scarboro, in order to better serve the audience and make sure everyone gets the seat they paid for. What hasn’t changed is the lineup of the best and biggest variety of performances the Artist Series could nd, in music, dance and theater. “We bring in performers we wouldn’t ordinarily be able to get in this area,” Scarboro told the Rotary Club, showing a brief video that featured segments from this year’s selection of shows. The shows are chosen for the Artist Series in several ways, from information sent to them by trusted representatives to research on the internet, looking for the best of a genre or the most unusual or outstanding. The Artist Series also does community outreach made possible by the contributions from the Artist Series Angels, taking some performers to Lake Park of Madison nursing facility or bringing in special performances for elementary school children from surrounding counties, like last season’s “Bits and Pieces Puppet Theater. “ The 2013-2014 lineup opens with “The Bronx Wanderers,” a two-hour concert covering 50’s 60’s and 70’s rock and roll music, coming to the NFCC stage Thursday, October 3. November’s show brings “Brotherhood,” an a capella quintet singing a mix of jazz, rock, pop, and gospel greats. The Christmas season wouldn’t be the same without a performance of “The Nutcracker,” and December won’t disappoint with Dance Alive National Ballet"s opulent production Tuesday, Dec. 3. In January, catch the “Popovich Pet Comedy Theater,” with the comedic and juggling skills of Gregory Popovich and over 30 trained animals, including 15 cats, 10 dogs, and a group of trained geese performing skits and acrobatics. All of the dogs and cats were rescues from animal shelters, and Popovich is the rst known performer to bring trained house cats to the stage. Think cats can’t be trained? Come see the show on Tuesday, Jan. 28 and be amazed. In February, a little “California Dreaming” will tour the pop music scene of California from the mid 60s through the early 70s with the sounds of the Beach Boys, The Mamas & The Papas and Lovin’ Spoonful among others. Kick back and enjoy the Friday evening concert on Feb. 28. In March, enjoy the sounds of bluegrass with Shannon and Heather Slaughter’s band, “Country Clare,” that mixes innovative musical arrangement with tradition and adds a heaping dose of humor for a memorable show, Friday, Mar. 28. The season ends with the Nebraska Theatre Caravan’s performance of “The Fantasticks,” steampunk style, coming to the stage Thursday, Apr. 3. All shows begin at 7 p.m. The prices for this season are $65 for a Season Pass to all seven shows ($40 for children or NFCC students) and $15 for individual tickets ($8 for children or NFCC student). Season Passes can be purchased up until the rst show on Oct. 3.

This year, we are bringing back, by popular demand, the “Hog calling contest,” because back 50 years ago, every homesteader in the community had hogs as part of their farming operation. We all fondly remember about 15 years ago, Cousin Mary Lou Buchanan and local hog famer Mr. Julian Andrews were in the “calloff” with Cousin Mary Lou winning by a huge landslide. Most of us folks think that Julian threw the competition so Mary Lou could win, but this writer does not think so. It was a really close competition, and about a hour after Founder’s Day was over, about 10 piney woods rooters came up to the church looking for Cousin Mary Lou. They had heard her soft but loud voice, and could not stand the temptation, so they came a-running from down on the river! The festivities will take place on Oct. 19, with the Hog-calling contest at 11 a.m. There will be a sign posted in front of the church, and all you have to do is sign up and show up! There will be a contest for kids also below the age of 10 years old. The adults will be eleven and older. Prizes will be awarded on the spot. The judges will be by applause from the audience as to who is the better hog caller. So, come and support your favorite hog caller, and when it is time to clap for your caller, make a joyful noise, like we do in church on “singing nite.” Immediately following the Hog Calling, and when we make all the piney woods rooters go back into the woods, we will have a “Dill Pickle Chip Spitting Contest.” We were gonna do a Watermelon Seed Spitting Contest, but we cannot nd any watermelons with seeds inside them. So, we will do the second best thing, and try to spit a sour, dill pickle chip as far as possible. There will be a sign up list located at the front of the church and this contest will begin after the hogs leave church. Prizes will be awarded just like in the hog calling contest. Founder’s Day at Hickory Grove will be a really great event for all ages, so mark your calendars now, and plan to come early and enjoy the entire day. Also, come hungry, because there will be sufcient food to partake of! Get Ready For The Artist Series At NFCCGreene Publishing, Inc.

United Way Agency Spotlight – The Refuge HouseBy Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc.The Refuge House serves eight counties in the Big Bend area and is a state certied domestic violence and rape crisis program.The ofce in Madison was established ten years ago and is currently ran by Executive Director, Meg Baldwin, who speaks very passionately about the agency and those who seek shelter within the Refuge House. Support and resources are given to victims of abuse or violence by offering immediate emergency shelter, transitional housing, counseling, education, career options, child services and transportation. The Madison ofce also offers safety planning for the abused victims that provides them the best options for staying safe during their current situation or to help in knowing when to leave the abusive relationship. Survivors of both rape and abuse are assisted with resources and education on their rights as a victim, legal protection and providing court support. The Refuge House assists sexual assault victims with medical help and also as a law enforcement advocate for the victim, after an attack. The Refuge House offers education to the community by offering to speak to local clubs and organizations on how to prevent sexual assault and domestic violence and on how to assist individuals who may be experiencing abuse or violence. If you are interested in contacting the Refuge House directly to offer nancial support or donations (clothing, household items, etc.) or for those needing services you can call their 24-hour hotline at 850584-8808. You can also go to their website at www.refugehouse.com. In discussing the fear involved when a victim reaches out for help, Baldwin says, “Everyone who calls our hotline needing services is a real hero.” Get Ready...55 Plus Starting Up Again Sheriff Ben Stewart Is First Guest SpeakerNow that the summer break is over, the 55 Plus Club will resume its monthly meetings at noon in the United Methodist Cooperative Ministries (UMCM) Center at the corner of N.E. Dill Street and Colin Kelly Highway on Wednesday, Sept. 11. The 55 Plus Club meets at noon on the second Wednesday of each month (except June, July and August) and is free and open to everyone in the community 55 and older, who enjoys getting together with friends for a good lunch and an interesting presentation geared toward their interests. Each month a different church hosts the meeting and provides the lunch; for the September kickoff meeting, the hosting church will be Lee United Methodist. September’s guest speaker will be Sheriff Ben Stewart, discussing the Second Amendment – the right to bear arms. 55 Plus is an outreach of UMCM. There are no dues, fees or registrations required.

September is the month when we and the other Southern Baptist churches in our area promote the Maguire State Missions Offering which honors the legacy of John and Clyde Maguire who served from 1945-67. The couple energetically called upon all Florida Baptists to embrace the Greatest Commandment through the Great Commission task of the mission eld that John Maguire called "Favored Florida." Please consider what you will give to help support the ministries of the Florida Baptist Convention. Prayer guides are available at the church for specic prayer requests and name these ministries. Our praise time began with "Days of Elijah" and "Blessed Be the Name of the Lord." Then we sang "Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus" and did the nal chorus a cappella which was beautiful. The children were dismissed to Children's Worship. We really appreciate our workers for this group. "Take the Name of Jesus with You" was our offertory hymn. The worship choir sang "Cornerstone" which is an updated version of "The Solid Rock" and based on the Scripture found in Matthew 21:42. Bro. Gabe preached from the preamble to the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 4:23-25. And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were aficted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them. Great multitudes followed Him--from Galilee, and from Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and beyond the Jordan. Jesus could draw a crowd. His audience included Jews, Gentiles, Greeks and Syrians that made up the 2-3 million people in an area of 40 miles by 70 miles. And He did this time. He preached the Good News of the Kingdom. And then He went about providing the expected improvement, a little bit of heaven on earth, by meeting the needs of others and righting the wrongs of society. Verse 24 explains what He did in the way of healing. The result of this preaching and healing was that great multitudes followed Him. This preamble sets the stage for what was to come in the Sermon on the Mount. Join us as Bro. Gabe gives us insight into this in the coming weeks.

Voter Drives Coming Up Next WeekBy Lazaro Aleman Greene Publishing, Inc.Floridas jobless rate held steady at 7.1 percent in July, making for the third consecutive month of the lowest rate since September 2008, when it was 7.0 percent. The US unemployment rate, meanwhile, was 7.4 percent in July, 0.2 percentage point lower than Junes rate of 7.6 percent. Madison and Jefferson counties, on the other hand, experienced slight increases in their unemployment rates in July, from 6.3 and 9.6 percents and 6.2 and 9.4 percents to respectively. This comes from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (FDEO), which released its latest unemployment report on Friday, Aug. 16. Statewide, the 7.1 percent represents 665,000 jobless Floridians out of a labor force of 9,404,000 -not counting individuals who have given up the search for work or are underemployed or employed part time. The FDEO reports Floridas seasonally adjusted total nonagricultural employment was 7,521,900 in July, an increase of 9,300 jobs over the month. Seasonally adjusted means the numbers have been purged of seasonal and other factors that could skew the results. For Madison County, the 9.6 percent translates into 679 jobless persons out of a labor force of 7,093 in July, compared with 670 jobless personsFloridas Jobless Rate Holds Steady At 7.1%By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.At the County Commissions rst public budget hearing Wednesday evening, Court Clerk Tim Sanders presented several sets of budget gures for the coming scal year (FY) 2013-2014, and several pages listing county revenues and expenditures for the past year, and transfers of funds made to some budgets to meet unexpected expenses, most of which were increased payments to employee retirement funds mandated by the state of Florida. Madison County has an estimated $624,848,939 worth of taxable property, an amount that has declined over the last several years since the $722,030,733 that formed the budget basis for FY08, when the millage rate was 8.0820. The rate has slowly increased since then, as taxable property amounts fell to $700,497,626 the following year, then $659,495,578 the year after that. For the last few years it has wavered between approximately $612 and $614 million. The budget proposal Sanders presented for the next scal year, after budget cuts to various departments, including cutbacks on operating hours for the solid waste department, transfers to offset some the unexpected mandates and other expenditures, leaving two positions vacant and not hiring a replacement for a part-timer who left, was based on a tax rate of 10 mils. It was a budget, he said, that had been put together after nearly two months of crunching numbers by several individuals. They started with a beginning decit of nearly $910,000 and worked up a balanced budget based on a 10 mil tax rate, as well as numerous charts and graphs showing what the countys budget picture would look like if the current millage rate of 9.6964 remained unchanged, as well as how it would look like with incremental increases of 9.7916 and 9.876, all the way up to 10. A lot of work went into this, said Sanders, who recommended the 10 mils rate and the balanced budget created based on the projected revenue for FY 2013-14. We especially appreciate what the Sheriffs department has given up to help us come up with this. After some subdued discussion, County Commission Chair Wayne Vickers opened the meeting to public input for anyone who wanted to comment on the proceedings or ask questions about the budget and the new proposed rate. However, not many people were in the audience and no one asked to address the commission, so the vote was called. The commission voted 5-0 to adopt the tentative new millage rate of 10 mils, and the tentative budget based on ten mils for the scal year 20132014. At this stage, however, everything is still tentative; there is one more public hearing before any nal budget decision can be made, and that is scheduled for Monday evening, Sept. 16, at 5:30 p.m. in the court house annex. Members of the public are invited to attend.County Commission Adopts Tentative 10 Mils BudgetBy Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc. Areplacement bridge at the Madison County-Lowndes County, Ga., line on the Valdosta Highway will be opened next August. The new bridge will be waterproof and it will replace the one that is currently in use north of Pinetta. Besides being prone to going under water from oods such as the one that put it under in 2009, the new one will be wider, higher and longer. The original bridge was built in 1941 at a time when narrow bridges were the norm. Over time, cars, pickups, farm equipment and semi-trucks have taken their toll on the historic bridge and travelers will be happy to welcome the new road. The bridge is being built at a cost of $5,400,000.00 and is a joint effort between the Florida and Georgia Departments of Transportation. New Bridge To Be WaterproofBy Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.School Board members at the Sept. 3 meeting spent much of the time discussing matters related to the Madison County Excel School, much of it focusing on establishing a transition policy for moving students back to their home schools once they have completed a required period of time at Madison Excel and met all the criteria for transfer. At a previous school board meeting in August, Sam Stalnaker, Coordinator of Career, Technical/Alternative Education, had outlined three options for such a policy, stating that he favored the rst option on the list and recommending it as the one to go with. However, school board members delayed a vote at that time because some of the members protested that they had been given the information just before the meeting began, too late for a thorough review of the policy details. At the Tuesday night meeting, the matter was taken up again. Stalnaker once more reviewed the rst option on the list and recommended its adoption as the new transition policy, because it allowed for the best match-up of the students grades, credits and coursework in transferring back to his or her home school. School board member VeEtta Hagan questioned the semi-annual review clause, asking if that wasnt too long to wait before a childs case for transfer would come up for consideration. Fellow board member Kenny Hall stated that the semi-annual review was only at the start, and the district would be working toward a 45-day review period. If a parent and child wanted to move back into the home school before then, they had a right to appear before the school board and present their case. This is about the good of the child, not about power, said Hagan. Weve got to be concerned about our children. Weve got to be concerned about our county. She further stated that she thought the policy was taking away too much power from the parents, and worried that keeping a basically good child who had made a mistake in an alternative setting too long might have detrimental effects. We want all the power and all the control over our children and their parents. Board member Karen Pickles, on the other hand, said that sheMadison Excel School Dominates School Board Meeting Sam Stalnaker addresses the school board regarding a transition policy that would streamline transfers for Madison Excel students back to their home schools.

I think of all the things I still need to do and I tell the Sandman to go away and leave me alone, but he throws more sand in my eyes. I am tired and the tiredness threatens to shroud me in blankets and clouds of slumber, but I remain awake, once again wondering how I will be able to accomplish all that I need to accomplish and still be able to do the things I WANT to do. I think of a poem by Robert Frost with the line Miles to go before I sleep. I think of the weary traveler on the road in the poem. I think of weary truck drivers out traveling between the white lines on the highways and how they have miles to go before they sleep. I think of people who are weary of life but still have miles to go before they sleep. Isnt it wonderful, though, that God has given us the ability to feel tired and know when we need sleep? When we do get those precious few hours of dreams, isnt it great to wake up refreshed from hopefully a pleasant nights sleep? Isnt it great that when we have heartaches that we can sleep and for a few hours at least they go away? Isnt it great that when we have pain that we can sleep and not be conscious of hurting? When we thank God for blessings in our lives, do we ever stop and thank Him that He gave us sleep. 2Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, September 6, 2013 The MadisonEnterprise-Recorder PublisherEmerald GreeneSenior Staff WriterJacob BembryStaff WritersLynette Norris, Rose KleinGraphic DesignersTori Self, Steven Godfrey Advertising Sales RepresentativesJeanette DunnBookeeperBrooke KinsleyClassified and Legal AdsCheltsie KinsleyDeadline for classieds is Monday at 3 p.m.Deadline for legal advertisements is Wednesday at 5 p.m. There will be a $7 charge for affidavits.Circulation DepartmentSheree MillerSubscription Rates:In-County $35 Out-of-County $45 E-Edition $25 ($5 add on to existing subscription) (State & local taxes included)Since 1865 -Telling it like it is with honesty and integrity.The Madison The Madison Enterprise-Recorder Enterprise-RecorderMadison Recorder established 1865 New Enterprise established 1901 Consolidated June 25, 1908 Published weekly by Greene Publishing Inc., 1695 S SR 53, Madison, FL 32340.

Its hard to convince people their daily food handling practices may be putting their family at risk for food-borne illness. You cant see, taste or smell bacteria that cause what we commonly call food poisoning. There are many different bacteria responsible for food borne illnesses and they are all invisible to the human eye. Most people dismiss food illness as a 24 hour bug and it often goes unreported. Each year, there is an estimated 76 million cases of food-borne illness in the United States, with approximately 325,000 people being hospitalized. These statistics are the reason USDA and the Partnership for Food Safety Education wants consumers to follow the four steps of food preparation to prevent food-borne illness in your home. 1. Clean everything! -Cleanliness is a major factor in preventing food-borne illness. Anything that touches food should be clean. Wash your hands, often; before you prepare food and after you contact raw meat, poultry, seafood and eggs. If you answer the phone, help your child with homework or pet the dog, wash your hands before you resume cooking. Make sure countertops, utensils, and all food preparation surfaces are frequently cleaned. 2. Keep Foods Separate -The concern here is cross-contamination. Harmful bacteria from raw meats poultry and sh can be left on cutting boards and utensils then transferred to other foods. For example, you cut up raw poultry and then slice vegetables for a salad without washing the cutting board. You have contaminated the salad with bacteria that can cause illness. 3. Use a food thermometer -You cant tell food is cooked safely by a visual check. A food thermometer allows you to determine the internal temperature of a food which will determine if the food is completely cooked. Harmful bacteria, like Salmonella or E coli, are destroyed at certain temperatures and there are different recommended temperatures for different foods. USDA recommends steaks and roasts and sh need to be cooked to an internal temperature of 145F, pork and ground beef and egg dishes to 160F, chicken breast to 170F and whole poultry to 180F. 4. Use the 2 hour rule --Chill leftovers within two hours of cooking. Most people are under the false impression that food needs to be at room temperature before it is put into the refrigerator, but that is not the case. The Danger Zone -temperatures between 40 and 140 F, is unsafe because harmful bacteria grow rapidly. Food left to cool on the countertop is in this temperature range for a long time! A large quantity of food, like soup or a casserole should be stored in several smaller containers and placed in different areas of the refrigerator to promote rapid cooling. Placing a large container of hot food or stacking several smaller containers on top of each other in the refrigerator will slow the cooling process. This also keeps food in the danger zone for an extended period of time, increasing the growth of bacteria. Following the four recommendations offered by the National Food Safety Education Partnership will help you keep your food safe to eat and drastically reduce your familys risk of food-borne illness. For more information on food safety, contact the Madison County Extension Service. The University of Florida Extension Madison County is an Equal Employment Opportunity Institution. MAKE FOOD SAFETY A PRIORITYThe Business Of EducationIt seems that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has invested "TONS" of money into controlling what is happening in the "business of education. Some are even referring to the Department of Education as the Department of Bill Gates. He and his wife are deeply involved in the United Nations Agenda 21 movement for a One World Government or New World Order, which has a strong focus on education as a means to indoctrinate our young people into the world-citizen mindset while diminishing family and national loyalties. It seems that much (if not all) of the money invested by the Gates Foundation in this "business of education, will be resulting in benets for Microsoft and other pre-determined vendors. The Common Core Standards, being shoved down our throats like a dog receiving worm medication, requires computers and software written I wonder by whom. When the Common Core Standards package, written by someone who is not an educator, and funded by Bill Gates, is provided to states, they will be required to purchase computers, Gates software and other items for storing and managing the personal and educational information on each child (and their family). Like rats following the Pied Piper, states have hungrily focused on grant money and signed on to Common Core, sight unseen, with much of the material still in the development stage (still by non educators) and to be in use next year. Once this is in control of our local "education business, where do you go with problems, questions, needed changes, etc? ZIP! (iddy-doo-da). AND WHO WILL PAY for all those computers, software, etc. after the grants run out? I also wonder If or WHEN all those computers go ofine, hopefully only temporarily, how will anyone be able to function in the classroom? Jeb Bush and his Foundation for Excellence in Education, in a partnership with Gates and his foundation, are already strongly pushing for an increase in Charter Schools, which apparently are without much (if any) oversight by local school boards as to curriculum or textbooks being used, where outside funding is acquired or what politicians might have a monetary interest in the Charter School portion of the business of education. Together, it seems that they, Bush and Gates, are in a position to take over the educational delivery and content. WHOA! Bump in the road for Common Core! Representative Debbie Mayeld from District 54, Vero Beach, just led HR 25 which will require that certain studies be made regarding some dubious points and meetings held in each congressional district so that some unknowns are uncovered and we citizens are allowed some involvement in the process. This is not a party or left/right issue. It is a freedom/control issue. Are the children to be stuffed into a one size ts all inescapable experiment? In 1934 NEA former Executive Secretary Willard Givens stated, "The major function of the school is the social orientation of the individual. It must seek to give him the understanding of the transition to the New social order." Hmmm. Any relation to Gates and Bush? HR 25 Call Halsey Beshears 850-717-5007 to cosponsor, Gov. Scott 850-448-7146 and Speaker Will Weatherford 813-588-5115, to support. Call Senate President Don Gaetz 850-890-5745 for a companion bill.

By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.Deloris Jones appeared before the County Commission to speak on behalf of Madison Countys Senior Citizens, of which I am proud to be one, she stated with enthusiasm. In light of some deep funding cuts at the state and county level for the Senior Citizens Council, Jones told the board, We dont weep we just go on and do something else to help our seniors...and we need help. The something else is the Choirs Rejoice In Song event, at Pineland Missionary Baptist Church, Sept. 14 at 6 p.m., a time of fellowship, rejoicing and fundraising on behalf of Madisons seniors. All proceeds from the event will go to support programs provided by the Senior Citizens Council of Madison, Inc., and Elder Care Services, Inc., that help seniors live independently and age in place with dignity. Jones invited the commissioners and the community to pledge their nancial support by coming out to the Choirs Rejoice In Song fundraiser. Rosa Richardson, executive director of the Senior Citizens Council, added that, You (commissioners) have supported us for the 21 years Ive been with the agency, and we thank you. For more information on the event, contact Deloris Jones at (850) 973-2823.From Page One Madison Enterprise-Recorder 3 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, September 6, 2013 World NewsBy Rose Klein Who Said Lying Doesnt PayIn Berlin, Germany, Patrick Ulmer owns a lying business and his services range from sending deceptive text messages to helping unfaithful spouses live double lives. Ulmers business, sometimes referred to as an alibi agency, helps people to create lies to conceal truths from family, friends and employers. Some of his basic services include sending phony text messages, booking phony vacations and maintaining a false address with mail service. Ulmer said one of his more large-scale clients pays an annual fee for the agency to maintain a fake apartment in Cologne, Germany, where his client claims to work for part of the year, to conceal a double life that includes two wives, who live in different cities in Switzerland. Ulmer says there are times he visits the apartment as the clients co-worker when one of the women come to visit him at the false residence. Tatort, a popular crime drama in Germany, featured a ctional company that offered services such as Ulmers, but on a larger scale. The show caused Ulmers business to spike sharply. He recently expanded, by starting a branch in Austria.Baby Delivered In Mothers DressIn Lithonia, Ga., Katrena Leonard of Gwinnett County, said she delivered her own baby while on the way to the hospital. Leonards husband, Terrance, drove more than 80 mph to get to the DeKalb Medical Center in Lithonia, but was about four minutes too late. The new mother caught the newborn, Kylie Rose, in the bottom of her dress. The nurses and everyone was down there and they didnt believe the baby was there. All of a sudden they say, Shes got the baby. All Kylie was doing was just looking at her mom like, Im here, said Terrance. Kylies pediatrician, Dr. Fiona Blair, said the girl was a healthy newborn and looks awesome. We had a wild, wild ride, Leonard said.Streaker Gets Stun GunnedIn Chicago, Ill., Tom Carideo was driving to pick up his kids near Union Park, when he noticed a naked man that was, running in circles naked as the day he was born, Carideo said. Then he looks at my car and goes into a full-out sprint and jumps, landing (butt) rst on the right side of my windshield and shatters it. Carideo says he armed himself with a hockey stick, called 911 and reported to the dispatcher the man was now bleeding from his buttocks. While Carideo was on the phone with the dispatcher, he followed the man in his car and reported that the naked man danced in the middle of an intersection and drank water from a puddle in the street. Carideo said police had to use a stun gun to subdue him. Police say they suspect the man was under the inuence of a hallucinogenic substance at the time of his arrest.Chicken Swallows Diamond EarringIn Reading, England, Claire Lennon of Berkshire County, lost one of her diamond earrings when a pet chicken snatched it off her ear. The chicken, Sarah, was perched on Lennons shoulder when she took the earring and now has the piece of jewelry trapped in her stomach. The vet said he could operate to recover the earring, but that might kill Sarah, which would devastate our 6-year-old daughter, Mia, who dotes on the chicken, says Lennon. So well have to wait until Sarah gets old and dies, but they live to a ripe old age. We ar e prob ably looking at another eight years before I get my earring back. Grades Cont. From Page 1and fth grades. Due to a decline in enrollment, the school did not have enough students for the test to be administered. Earlier, the school grades were released for Lee Elementary School, Pinetta Elementary School and Madison County Central School. Both Lee and Pinetta received B grades, down from A last year, and the Central School received an F. The scores are based on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) among other variables. This year, James Madison Preparatory School ninth graders will be subject to take the FCAT. Jobless Rates Cont. From Page 1out of a labor force of 7,118 in June, when the rate was 9.4 percent. In July 2012, the comparable gures were 802 jobless persons out of a labor force of 7,328, when the unemployment rate was 10.9 percent. For Jefferson County, the 6.3 percent rate translates into 412 jobless persons out of a labor force of 6,564 in July, compared with 405 jobless persons out of a labor force of 6,529 in June, when the rate was 6.2 percent. In July 2012, the comparable gures were 568 jobless persons out of a workforce of 6,564 when the unemployment rate was 8.7 percent. The FDEO report indicates that the industry gaining the most jobs continues to be trade, transportation and utilities, up 53,800; followed by leisure and hospitality, up 25,600 jobs; professional and business services, up 24,200; private education and health services, up 20,500 jobs; construction, up 15,700 jobs; nancial activities, up 7,700 jobs; other services, up 2,300 jobs; and information, up 1,900 jobs. The industries losing jobs over the year continue to be total government, down 6,000 jobs, and manufacturing, down 2,100 jobs. Monroe and Walton counties had the states lowest unemployment rate at 4.2 percent, followed by Okaloosa County at 5.1 percent; Franklin County at 5.5; and St. Johns County at 5.6 percent. Hendry County continues to have the states highest unemployment rate at 15.5 percent, followed by Flagler and St. Lucie counties at 10.4 percent; Putnam County at 10.4 percent; and Indian River County at 9.7 percent. Four counties had double-digit jobless gures in July, up from three in June. Madison Excel Cont. From Page 1had issues with anything less than a semester-long period of review, because a shorter time period could cause the child to lose credit for coursework he or she had completed while at Excel. As an educator, that bothers me, she said. Theyll lose all that work. What youve learned, nobody can take away from you, said Hagan. Stalnaker appealed to the board to give him the time he needed to get through this school year, get the transfer process going and put the foundation in place. Superintendent Doug Brown added the district did not yet have the online tech support to keep the students perfectly matched up with the coursework in their home schools. Right now we just dont have the mechanism in place, he said. In the meantime, the district needed a transfer policy that could take that into account without leaving too big a gap in the students school credits. In the meantime, the student and parents still had the right to come before the superintendent and school board and appeal for an earlier transfer, if the student was doing well in the alternative setting and meeting requirements. Some board members still had reservations when the item came to a vote, however, and the transfer policy was approved 3-2. The issue came to the forefront once again during the public input segment, when several community members addressed the board on behalf of students now attending Excel. Local attorney Ernie Page addressed the board about the new policy, saying that he had represented students at Excel in the past, all of whom were able to transition successfully back to their home schools, and he was still representing other Excel students and their families. With tonights vote, he asked if he would still be able to petition for a clients transfer back to the home school. Board member Kenny Hall assured him that there would always be the right to come before the board and appeal. Other community members came forward to speak on behalf of another student at Excel, including a concerned relative and the assistant pastor at the young mans church. The assistant pastor stated that the young man knew he had made a mistake and was working hard with his church family and counselors to correct it, attending numerous church services, counseling and prayer sessions. She asked that the board members also pray about the matter as they considered the young mans case. We are working diligently with him, she told the board. We want to make proud citizens of Madison County...God is raising up a nation that will obey Him. The uncle also addressed the board, asking, If God can forgive us, how can we not forgive someone else? Are we here to help the kid or to hurt him? Hes a good kid, but hes discouraged. The uncle added that the young man had admitted that he had done wrong. We all make mistakes...he has made one mistake. Im asking the board to take that into consideration and do the right thing...God knows all things. God answers all prayers. After a fourth community member who had signed up for the public input section declined to speak, the board, with no other items on the agenda, adjourned. Road Work Cont. From Page 1planned, so those interested are encouraged to stop by anytime. The improvements include reconstructing and widening the State Road 53 and U.S. 90 intersection by adding left turn lanes on State Road 53 for trafc turning east and west onto U.S. 90. A concrete trafc separator will also be constructed on U.S. 90. Other construction activities include rebuilding the retaining wall in the northeast corner, replacing the trafc signals and poles and adding pedestrian countdown signals. Sidewalk improvements are also included along State Road 53 between Rutledge and Livingston streets to meet current safety standards. Trafc shifts will be necessary while the intersection and State Road 53 are widened. Motorists should be aware of changing trafc patterns during construction. Daytime lane closures after 8:30 a.m. weekdays will occur. More than 11,000 vehicles travel each day on U.S. 90 near State Road 53 and of those, eight percent are classied as heavy-duty trucks while more than 6,000 vehicles travel each day on State Road 53 near U.S. 90 with 20 percent classied as heavy-duty trucks. The project is estimated to take about ve months to complete and APAC Southeast, Inc. of Jacksonville has been hired by FDOT to do the work at a cost of $1.1 million.

The signs says he is an idiot for making 911 calls threatening police. Richard Dameron, 58, threatened police during 911 calls and then skipped out on his punishment. Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Pinkey Carr ordered him to hold a sign this week outside of the Second District police station in Cleveland. The sign reads, in part: "I was being an idiot and it will never happen again." He told Carr he couldn't show up to his last court appearance because he didn't have a ride. WKYC-TV

For many Americans, financial life seems to be getting more and more complicated. Perhaps thats because more workers bear responsibility for their own retirement savings thanks to the proliferation of 401(k) and other plans. Or maybe its because theres so much information and so many investment choices to sort through. Whatever the case, here are some suggestions that may help to simplify your financial life. 1. Start with a Plan A little time spent planning now can benefit you later. First, determine short-term financial goals. Do you want to purchase a home in five years? Are your kids heading off to college soon? Is buying a car a top priority next year? Next, think about long-term goals, such as saving for retirement and, if your children are young, college expenses. Estimate how much money youll need to meet each of these goals. 2. Build a Better Budget Next, look at your current monthly net income and then set up a budget. Creating a budget allows you to see exactly where all your money goes and to determine where you can scale back. After making cuts, invest that money to help pursue your financial goals. 3. Invest Systematically You can take time and guesswork out of investing with a systematic investing program. With mutual funds, for example, you can make arrangements to automatically invest a specific amount of money on a regular (e.g., monthly) basis, a strategy also known as dollar cost averaging.* In addition to making investing easier, dollar cost averaging could potentially save you money. Youll buy more shares when prices are low and fewer shares when theyre high. Over time, the average cost you pay for the shares may be less than the average price. 4. Rely on an Investment Professional While the financial world is far more complex than it was just a few years ago, you dont have to go it alone. Think about tapping into your investment professionals expertise before making any major change in your investments. He or she can help you to evaluate how new tax rules and changing market conditions may affect your portfolio and, in turn, your financial goals. Dollar cost averaging involves regular, periodic investments in securities regardless of price levels. You should consider your financial ability to continue purchasing shares through periods of high and low prices. This plan does not assure a profit and does not protect against loss in declining markets.

Mark Buescher, the United Way Madison County (UWMC) Chairman, along with a room full of Madison representatives, discussed past contributions and upcoming goals for the year. The rst order of business was to set a campaign goal. In setting a monetary goal, the largest concern was the fact of nationwide charitable contributions being down. The nal decision, however, was unanimous to keep the goal high at $110,000 because the team is optimistic about receiving donations here in Madison. With their goal set, the group discussion turned towards getting individuals and businesses involved. The United Way of Big Bend (UWBB), Campaign Associate, Megan Picht, and Vice-President of Resource Development, Sarah Deeb, both from Tallahassee, were present to help the team with ideas and campaign materials. Everyone agreed on the importance of getting the message of, local money staying local, and that 100 percent of the money donated by Madison residents goes directly to Madison County Agencies, was key. In addition, it would be helpful for those giving to know that the United Way Madison County team is made completely of volunteers and that no administrative cost will be incurred. The nal statement that ended the meeting, made by Mark Buescher, was to help people realize that by everyone giving a little, not anyone person giving a lot, is how the United Way team here in Madison can reach their goal. As a service to Madison County residents and the United Way, Greene Publishing, Inc. will be spotlighting one Madison County Agency each week during the Madison County United Way Madison campaign. We hope this information will help in choosing how you, as an individual or as a business, will allocate your contribution spending. Remember, the money you donate in Madison County, stays in Madison County. See Spotlight on page 7. Greene Publishing, Inc.

By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.Since 1959, the Artist Series at North Florida Community College has been bringing a variety of shows and performers from all over the country to its auditorium, and over the years, its NFCC budget has grown from $400 to $20,000, supplemented by community sponsors, performing arts grants and proceeds from ticket sales. This year, all seating will be reserved seating instead of partially reserved and partially general seating, said NFCCs Kim Scarboro, in order to better serve the audience and make sure everyone gets the seat they paid for. What hasnt changed is the lineup of the best and biggest variety of performances the Artist Series could nd, in music, dance and theater. We bring in performers we wouldnt ordinarily be able to get in this area, Scarboro told the Rotary Club, showing a brief video that featured segments from this years selection of shows. The shows are chosen for the Artist Series in several ways, from information sent to them by trusted representatives to research on the internet, looking for the best of a genre or the most unusual or outstanding. The Artist Series also does community outreach made possible by the contributions from the Artist Series Angels, taking some performers to Lake Park of Madison nursing facility or bringing in special performances for elementary school children from surrounding counties, like last seasons Bits and Pieces Puppet Theater. The 2013-2014 lineup opens with The Bronx Wanderers, a two-hour concert covering 50s 60s and 70s rock and roll music, coming to the NFCC stage Thursday, October 3. Novembers show brings Brotherhood, an a capella quintet singing a mix of jazz, rock, pop, and gospel greats. The Christmas season wouldnt be the same without a performance of The Nutcracker, and December wont disappoint with Dance Alive National Ballet"s opulent production Tuesday, Dec. 3. In January, catch the Popovich Pet Comedy Theater, with the comedic and juggling skills of Gregory Popovich and over 30 trained animals, including 15 cats, 10 dogs, and a group of trained geese performing skits and acrobatics. All of the dogs and cats were rescues from animal shelters, and Popovich is the rst known performer to bring trained house cats to the stage. Think cats cant be trained? Come see the show on Tuesday, Jan. 28 and be amazed. In February, a little California Dreaming will tour the pop music scene of California from the mid 60s through the early 70s with the sounds of the Beach Boys, The Mamas & The Papas and Lovin Spoonful, among others. Kick back and enjoy the Friday evening concert on Feb. 28. In March, enjoy the sounds of bluegrass with Shannon and Heather Slaughters band, Country Clare, that mixes innovative musical arrangement with tradition and adds a heaping dose of humor for a memorable show, Friday, Mar. 28. The season ends with the Nebraska Theatre Caravans performance of The Fantasticks, steampunk style, coming to the stage Thursday, Apr. 3. All shows begin at 7 p.m. The prices for this season are $65 for a Season Pass to all seven shows ($40 for children or NFCC students) and $15 for individual tickets ($8 for children or NFCC student). Season Passes can be purchased up until the rst show on Oct. 3.

This year, we are bringing back, by popular demand, the Hog calling contest, because back 50 years ago, every homesteader in the community had hogs as part of their farming operation. We all fondly remember about 15 years ago, Cousin Mary Lou Buchanan and local hog famer Mr. Julian Andrews were in the calloff with Cousin Mary Lou winning by a huge landslide. Most of us folks think that Julian threw the competition so Mary Lou could win, but this writer does not think so. It was a really close competition, and about a hour after Founders Day was over, about 10 piney woods rooters came up to the church looking for Cousin Mary Lou. They had heard her soft but loud voice, and could not stand the temptation, so they came a-running from down on the river! The festivities will take place on Oct. 19, with the Hog-calling contest at 11 a.m. There will be a sign posted in front of the church, and all you have to do is sign up and show up! There will be a contest for kids also below the age of 10 years old. The adults will be eleven and older. Prizes will be awarded on the spot. The judges will be by applause from the audience as to who is the better hog caller. So, come and support your favorite hog caller, and when it is time to clap for your caller, make a joyful noise, like we do in church on singing nite. Immediately following the Hog Calling, and when we make all the piney woods rooters go back into the woods, we will have a Dill Pickle Chip Spitting Contest. We were gonna do a Watermelon Seed Spitting Contest, but we cannot nd any watermelons with seeds inside them. So, we will do the second best thing, and try to spit a sour, dill pickle chip as far as possible. There will be a sign up list located at the front of the church and this contest will begin after the hogs leave church. Prizes will be awarded just like in the hog calling contest. Founders Day at Hickory Grove will be a really great event for all ages, so mark your calendars now, and plan to come early and enjoy the entire day. Also, come hungry, because there will be sufcient food to partake of! Get Ready For The Artist Series At NFCCGreene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Lynette Norris, August 28, 2013After rst pausing a moment to reect on North Florida Community Colleges recent ranking as number two in the nation, Kim Scarboro discusses the upcoming season of the Artists Series for 2013-2014. United Way Agency Spotlight The Refuge HouseBy Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc.The Refuge House serves eight counties in the Big Bend area and is a state certied domestic violence and rape crisis program.The ofce in Madison was established ten years ago and is currently ran by Executive Director, Meg Baldwin, who speaks very passionately about the agency and those who seek shelter within the Refuge House. Support and resources are given to victims of abuse or violence by offering immediate emergency shelter, transitional housing, counseling, education, career options, child services and transportation. The Madison ofce also offers safety planning for the abused victims that provides them the best options for staying safe during their current situation or to help in knowing when to leave the abusive relationship. Survivors of both rape and abuse are assisted with resources and education on their rights as a victim, legal protection and providing court support. The Refuge House assists sexual assault victims with medical help and also as a law enforcement advocate for the victim, after an attack. The Refuge House offers education to the community by offering to speak to local clubs and organizations on how to prevent sexual assault and domestic violence and on how to assist individuals who may be experiencing abuse or violence. If you are interested in contacting the Refuge House directly to offer nancial support or donations (clothing, household items, etc.) or for those needing services you can call their 24-hour hotline at 850584-8808. You can also go to their website at www.refugehouse.com. In discussing the fear involved when a victim reaches out for help, Baldwin says, Everyone who calls our hotline needing services is a real hero. Get Ready...55 Plus Starting Up Again Sheriff Ben Stewart Is First Guest SpeakerNow that the summer break is over, the 55 Plus Club will resume its monthly meetings at noon in the United Methodist Cooperative Ministries (UMCM) Center at the corner of N.E. Dill Street and Colin Kelly Highway on Wednesday, Sept. 11. The 55 Plus Club meets at noon on the second Wednesday of each month (except June, July and August) and is free and open to everyone in the community 55 and older, who enjoys getting together with friends for a good lunch and an interesting presentation geared toward their interests.

Septembers guest speaker will be Sheriff Ben Stewart, discussing the Second Amendment the right to bear arms. 55 Plus is an outreach of UMCM. There are no dues, fees or registrations required.

Madison Enterprise-Recorder 9www.greenepublishing.com Friday, September 6, 2013Church/Turn Back Time Buried TreasuresWay Back When AtMadison First Baptist ChurchSubmitted By Judy PhillipsGuest ColumnistSeptember 10, 1943 The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Johnny Eddins of Greenville were surprised to learn that their nephew, Tech 5th Grade Sgt. Joe Dulaney, of Molino, has been wounded in the North Africa area, including Sicily. Julian Brown, a Madison boy who is a prisoner of war of the Japanese, was heard from Tuesday when he wrote his mother that he was well and feeling ne and said to tell all his friends hello. He was ill in the hospital some time ago and this is good news for his family and friends. Friends of Sgt. Frank Cantey will be interested to know that he was recently promoted to Staff Sergeant. Pfc. David Wyche writes that he appreciates what the editor and the people of Madison County are doing for the boys in the service. He is doing ne in England and appreciates getting news from home and says he nds the Enterprise-Recorder very interesting to read. He said he saw the article about the tobacco barn being bombed by a watermelon. September 4, 1953 H.F. Eady, age 48, of Jacksonville, foreman and tank erector for the Whitmire Tank Company, of Jacksonville, contractors for the erection of the new Madison water tank, was killed instantly about 12:10 p.m. Wednesday in a fall in the tank. The tank was practically nished when the tragedy occurred. Charlie Wynn, who has been with Winn & Lovett Grocery Company, since 1937 is leaving in a few days for St. Augustine to manage Lovetts Market there. Mrs. Ann Foster Pierce is the new Madison County health nurse, succeeding Mrs. Rena Hendry Dodge. Donald Dickinson had an x-ray examination Sept. 2 for a hand injury. He was injured when a tire exploded. September 6, 1963 Mr. and Mrs. Robert Bembry of Madison are parents of a baby boy born Sept. 1. He weighed 5 lbs., 13 ounces and has been named Jacob Eugene. The Midway Church of God is in a revival with Rev. Mallory Smith as evangelist. Services are held each night at 7:30 and continue through next week. Homecoming will be held Sept. 15 with all day services and dinner. Pastor Lela Anderson invites everyone to go and worship with them. Mr. and Mrs. Lyndon Pickles are making their home in the Howard Tuten house. Mrs. Marvin Smith, Mrs. Inez Terry and Robin Smith of Pinetta spent Saturday at Steinhatchee with Mrs. John Deason. They also visited Keaton Beach and Jug Island. September is the month when we and the other Southern Baptist churches in our area promote the Maguire State Missions Offering which honors the legacy of John and Clyde Maguire who served from 1945-67. The couple energetically called upon all Florida Baptists to embrace the Greatest Commandment through the Great Commission task of the mission eld that John Maguire called Favored Florida. Please consider what you will give to help support the ministries of the Florida Baptist Convention. Prayer guides are available at the church for specic prayer requests and name these ministries. Our praise time began with Days of Elijah and Blessed Be the Name of the Lord. Then we sang Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus and did the nal chorus a cappella which was beautiful. The children were dismissed to Childrens Worship. We really appreciate our workers for this group. Take the Name of Jesus with You was our offertory hymn. The worship choir sang Cornerstone which is an updated version of The Solid Rock and based on the Scripture found in Matthew 21:42. Bro. Gabe preached from the preamble to the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 4:23-25. And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were aficted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them. Great multitudes followed Him--from Galilee, and from Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and beyond the Jordan. Jesus could draw a crowd. His audience included Jews, Gentiles, Greeks and Syrians that made up the 2-3 million people in an area of 40 miles by 70 miles. And He did this time. He preached the Good News of the Kingdom. And then He went about providing the expected improvement, a little bit of heaven on earth, by meeting the needs of others and righting the wrongs of society. Verse 24 explains what He did in the way of healing. The result of this preaching and healing was that great multitudes followed Him. This preamble sets the stage for what was to come in the Sermon on the Mount. Join us as Bro. Gabe gives us insight into this in the coming weeks.
