Juan Williams, Risk Management Specialist for the City of Madison, nished his nal report on the chlorine spill at the Wastewater Treatment Plant, located at 381 SW Harvey Greene Drive in early September. The spill occurred at 3:10 p.m. on Aug. 21 during a chlorine tank clean out. At the time, it was thought there was no gas in the tank and the change-out should not be a problem. Williams wrote in the report: According to Delmonie Thomas, who was performing the change-out, there was a question about one of the valves working correctly to turn off the gas coming from the standby tanks, which are used when the big tank runs out of gas. Delmonie proceeded to take the chlorinator clamp to the tank apart to perform the change-out when gas started to escape. So much gas escaped that he couldnt see where to turn off the gas to stop the leak. He then proceeded up to the lab to notify Stan McCreary, who is the wastewater supervisor, and to put on a SCBA (secondary breathing apparatus) so that he could go back and turn the gas off. Stan proceeded down to the leak and tried to turn off the gas but could notReport And Recommendations Finalized On Chlorine SpillLocal Churches Plan Fundraiser For Man Who Needs Medical HelpOn Friday, Sept. 27, the FYI (For Your Information) Sunday School Class of Hopewell Baptist Church, along with several other churches in the county, will be hosting a fundraiser for Brad Beggs.

According to a Madison Police Department report, Officer Jared Dewey observed Reuben Lee Graham, Jr., 23, standing on the sidewalk in front of the C Building of Madison Heights Apartments. Dewey exited his patrol car and inquired why Graham was standing in front of the building early in the morning. Graham told Dewey he was visiting his sister, who lived in one of the apartments. He said he was waiting on his sister. Dewey got Grahams name and date of birth and checked with the 911 Communications Center for active warrants and trespasses for Madison Heights. Information was received that there were no active warrants on Graham, but he did have an active trespass warning for all of Madison Heights. While Dewey placed Graham under arrest, he noticed Graham reach into his pocket and pull an object out and drop it on the ground. Dewey finished placing Graham in cuffs and retrieved the object. A search of the subject revealed no additional contraband. After Graham was placed in the patrol car, Dewey examined the package, which was a threepack of Zig-Zag Cigarillos (commonly used to inhale marijuana) and found a green, leafy subject appearing to be marijuana.

I was headed to work listening to a preacher when the guy, who I had never heard of before, said that God had prepared a table for me in the presence of mine enemies. I seized hold of his message with both hands and my whole heart. Yes, I thought, God has prepared a table for me in the presence of mine enemies. It doesnt matter what devils of Hell and Earth assail me, I can still sit eating from the smorgasbord of spiritual gifts that God has for me. In the 23rd Psalm, I am told that God has prepared a table for me in the presence of mine enemies. Sometimes, we are made painfully aware of the depths that our enemies will stoop to. Still, God calls us to love them, no matter how bad they mistreat and use us. Still, God has a table set before us in their presence. When we think that the enemy has won, we discover time and again that the devil has lied. We have won and they dont even realize it yet. It is so amazing what God does for you. The food at His table tastes so good.

This year the community service theme for Florida 4-H will be Serving Those Who Serve Us. Day after day our communities are kept safe and operational by those who serve us such as remen, police ofcers, EMS workers, military personnel, garbage collectors, teachers, government ofcials, members of the non-prot sector, spiritual leaders, and so many more. 4-H has a clear goal of being concerned with the welfare of others, accepting responsibilities of citizenship, determining values and attitudes by which to live, and learning how to work with others. We would now like to take time to honor and serve those who not only teach us how to follow this path but live it themselves every day. Madison 4-H would like to encourage all youth organizations in the area to adopt this project for a yeara monthor even just a day to serve those who serve us so well without expecting anything in return. Here are some ways you can honor these important citizens: Adopt a Family (member): Send letters/cards/care packages to deployed military members (or maybe their whole unit). Assist a family at home by doing yard work, cutting the grass, walking the pet. Offer to babysit or play with military youth while the parent at home has a chance to relax or run errands. Care Package Drive: Organize a care package drive for your chosen service group. Clean up a Veterans Cemetery: help decorate graves with American Flags, wash head stones, and pull weeds around the head stones. Dont have a Veterans Cemetery nearby? Inquire at a local community cemetery and ask which graves are those of service people (remember this can be military or otherwise). Honor Wall: Organize an Honor Wall. Post pictures/names/service eld of those who have served and place in a public location such as a store, county ofce, library, or school. Stockings: Morgan Bowen, Georgia 4H member, started a project sending stockings over to U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. The project raised community support to sew, decorate, stuff, and ship handmade stockings while building leadership skills, life skills, compassion, and an appreciation for service among teens. This project can be adapted for any profession or person who continuously serves their community. A Simple Thank You: Sometimes we forget how far a simple handshake and sincere thank you for all that you do for our community can mean to these people who serve us day in and day out. Becky V.

H4: Head, Heart, Hands, And HealthParent Arrested For Questioning Common CoreOn Sept. 19 in Towson, Md. a public forum was held, hosted by the Maryland State Board of Education. Robert Small, the father of two children in the Howard County schools, was not allowed to ask questions. In spite of calls from other attendees that he be allowed to speak, an off-duty police ofcer, serving as security, forced Mr. Brown from the room, handcuffed him and had him sit on the curb outside the school. He was then taken to the Towson precinct where he was charged with second-degree assault of a police ofcer, which carries a ne of $2,500 and up to 10 years in prison and disturbing a school operation, which carries a ne of $2,500 and up to six months of jail time. The video showed only a non-aggressive, concerned parent. Mr. Brown fears that the standards are being reduced and children are being prepared only for community colleges rather than receiving an education worthy of a four-year college. The Baltimore Sun quoted him as asking, Why wont they allow an open forum where there can be a debate? We are told to sit there and be lectured to about how great Common Core is. He also asked, Is this America? EXECUTIVE ORDER NUMBER 13-276 On September 23, in Tallahassee, Gov. Scott signed this Executive Order, withdrawing Florida from PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers). This is a start, but there is no indication that Florida is ready to repeal Common Core standards. ITS ONLY $443,010 (this time) Nancy (We have to pass it to nd out what is in it) Pelosi has stated that the government has been cut to the bare bone. She and her Washington cohorts have requested and received exemption from Obamacare which has been termed multiple train wrecks by Republicans and Democrats. Why dont they just exempt all of us and save, save, save? Then, this $443,010 Federal grant to the Smithsonian to study tree biodiversity in China might be a little easier to accept. A CONSTITUTIONAL SHERIFF Posted on WND news on Sept. 14 was a video made by one of a small group of Second Amendment rights supporters who were peacefully demonstrating in Michigan. We saw the sheriff car pull up so we all took out our camera-phones right away, anticipating trouble. This ofcer gets out of his car, waves to us, and walks right over. He shakes all of our hands, introduces himself, and states his purpose for walking over to us. (Somebody got scared and called). He never asked us to disarm, never threatened us, never asked for our names or identication. He asked the group, What is the only constitutionally recognized law enforcement agency in the land? One of the open-carriers replied, The sheriffs department. The Sheriff gave a thumbs-up... and continued: Every other [agency] was created by statute. ... Congress has created them. The Constitution [only calls for] sheriffs. When I got into this line of work because I was a young constitutionalist like yourselves I said I want to work for the sheriff. ... To me, its very personal. I hold it in my heart, because its constitutional, the ofcer said.THE REPUBLICAN CLUB OF MADISON COUNTY Meets Monday, October 14, at 12 noon at Shelby's Restaurant EVERYONE WELCOME Paid for and approved by the Madison County Republican Executive Committee MadisonRepublican@embarqmail.com A Table Before Me Read Jacobs blog at www.jacobbembry.com.

Financial Strategies Conference To Provide Education And Networking For Floridas Agricultural Producers Chlorine Spill Cont. From Page 1Abecause of the volume of gas that had escaped. When Stan saw that he, nor Delmonie, could turn the gas off, they both backed off and Stan called Bruce Jordan (re chief) on his cell phone and asked for help. Williams determined during his investigation that the gauge on the chlorinator was not working at the time of the accident. He wrote that this would give a false reading as to how much gas was in the tank that needed to be changed out. Delmonie thought the tank was empty, when, in fact, there was plenty of gas still in the tank. When he took apart the chlorinator, which is attached to the tank, gas began coming out. What Delmonie thought was gas left in lines was actually still in the tank. Williams recommended several things be done to prevent such an incident from happening in the future: Tank change-out procedures need to be posted in the area. Two personnel should be present at all times when changing out the tanks. The re department should be notied to standby. Personnel, who are performing the change-outs, should have an evacuation mask with them when changing out the tanks. Monthly training and documentation of procedures should be done monthly on how to change out the tanks and what to do in case of spills or leaks in the area. By Jacob BembryGreene Publishing, Inc. A woman reported a theft to Madison Police Department Ofcer Andrew Brooks on Friday evening, Sept. 20. According to Brooks report, he was dispatched to Madison Heights Apartments in reference to the theft of a Playstation 3 gaming system. The complainant said that her son moved the system near another door of the apartment and the door was left unlocked. He spoke to the son, who said he was not at home when the theft occurred. The woman said that her son received the system as a gift. There were no other witnesses and she advised that she did not want to press charges. Theft Reported With continued concerns about the falling value of homes, rising health care costs, and uncertain outlook for the economy, now more than ever, Americans need to set a new course with regard to managing their household finances. If you are ready to face up to your own financial realities and set a plan of action, the time to act is now. The following three-part strategy may help you control your cash flow, pay off debt, and encourage saving so you can better handle the expenses that may have gotten you into debt in the first place. Step 1: Track Your Spending As a first step, keep track of your typical monthly expenses for three months to find out where your money is going. Also try to estimate unexpected expenses for a years time -auto and home repairs, gifts, vacations, etc. -and divide that number by 12. Once you have a record of your spending, compare your monthly outlay to your monthly income. If you have a surplus, this is the amount you can apply each month to paying down debt and building savings. If you have a shortfall, youll need to examine your expenses more closely to see what you can potentially cut back or cut out. Step 2: Build Your Savings A key to establishing good saving habits is to make saving even easier than spending. One tip is to set up separate savings accounts with separate goals attached to them. If you open them with the same bank, you can easily transfer money back and forth. Suggested account purposes: Emergency Account to pay for unexpected life events. Your goal in this account should be to build up at least three to six months of living expenses. This way, if you lose your job or need a lump sum to pay for a significant expense, you may not have to tap in to your other savings or ring up more debt. If you can direct 5% of your pay each month to this account, youll build up a nice cushion in about three to four years. Family Account to help fund your childrens school expenses (such as class trips and team uniforms) or family vacations. Lets face it: if you have children, you are always paying for something. Even if you dont have kids, putting away money for a specific short-term goal, like a vacation, is a worthy savings strategy. Investment Account to be put toward general or long-term saving goals. Hopefully, you already have a retirement savings account (either through your workplace or on your own) and perhaps a college savings plan. But having another account to save for other longer-term goals -maybe a nest egg to start your own business -can be a smart move. Step 3: Stop Abusing Your Credit Cards If youve accumulated significant credit card debt, youve first got to stop the bad behavior. Paying off debt is easier once you stop using your credit cards. Pay off your highest interest credit card debt first, making sure you avoid the minimum balance trap. Paying more than the minimum can make a big difference. Then work on consolidating your debt by transferring outstanding balances to lowerrate cards. If you dont want to transfer your balances, you may be able to get your current credit card company to match the interest rate of a competitor. Additionally, its advisable to cancel all cards except for the one that offers the lowest interest rate. Finally, set up a realistic payment timetable and stick with it. If you need to readjust your timetable, do so. If you have trouble, contact me at our office.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.As one of the guests noted, enjoying the hors doeuvres in the dining hall during Lake Park of Madisons Open House, many nursing homes arent the hospitallike places they used to be, with the smell of antiseptic permeating everything. Instead, places like Lake Park are warmer, more cheerful and more inviting, geared toward whole-patient wellbeing. The more cheerful environment includes Parker the Therapy Dog, a specially trained animal who also lives there, roaming the halls and giving as much love as he get from the residents. The open house event invited members of the community to come in and look around a bit, with refreshments for all and door prize drawings for a few lucky winners.

Ted Ensminger, Director of Sales and Events and Krystal Williams, Club Manager, were on hand to make sure that all had a good time and to answer any questions. The event started at 5 p.m. and in as little as half an hour the club lounge was full and quickly became standing room only as tables were filled quickly and drinks and hors doeuvres dwindled. Ensminger directed guests from behind the bar and called out door prizes when he wasnt on the floor laughing and talking at the tables. Sandra Hosford, who used to work for the country club, was in attendance and said, Im here because its my last chance to see everyone before I leave tomorrow morning. Ive seen a lot of country clubs, but I absolutely love Madison Country Club. Williams called the event a success and said the evening brought out about 50 people to the club, some who left with membership information and applications in hand.Greene Publihing, Inc.

By Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.PEER Awareness, an organization out of Grand Rapids, Mich., is making the rounds to universities and now high schools, and this week came to Madison High School with their texting and driving awareness program. The program came to Madison through the sponsorship of the Madison Junior Auxiliary. Mary K Blume, the project chairman, said that MCHS was one of the first high schools to have the program and was thrilled they were here. She believes it will make a difference for the students. Part of this difference might include the statistics given, such as drivers who text are 23 times more likely to be involved in a car crash, eight times more likely to crash than a person drinking alcohol and that more than 100,000 crashes a year involve drivers who are texting, causing lifechanging injuries and deaths. The program involved a 30-minute film and a simulator that was the high point of the event. Students got into an actual stabilized car, put on a head visor that was programmed with a simulated road coarse and texted from an actual cellphone. The cars driving equipment, along with the phone, was hooked up to sensors attached to a computer that monitored the drivers progress. At the end of the drive, the computer showed potential problems or crashes. Blume said she watched as some of the students came out of the simulator with white faces and hopes that they will take what they learned with them.Around Madison County6AMadison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, September 27, 2013Smith-Dixon Family ReunionSet For SaturdayIf you are related to Dixons, Hamiltons, or Washingtons, you are invited to attend the annual family reunion.

Inaugural Girls To Queens Banquet Is A Success, Thanks To ManyStory submittedLast months inaugural Girls To Queens Banquet was a community effort for our young ladies, and we would like to thank the following organizations/individuals for making this possible for us: The Florida Department of Health in Madison County, Boyz to Kings, Base Street Florist, We Care Madison, Flowers Chemical Laboratory, Tina & Ernie Johnson, Madison County Community Bank, Tommy Hardee, Winn Dixie, St. James Church, Corporate Graphics, Exclusive Hair Salon, Chamber of Commerce, Cornerstone Ministries, and Shirley & Carlton Souter. Throughout the evening, speakers drawn from all walks of our community shared their own experiences with the young ladies as they talked to them about healthy self-esteem, character and integrity, how these qualities were necessary parts of being bold and confident enough to be themselves, stand up for themselves and make good choices. It was an empowerment event for our young ladies, where they were served like young Queens and the Boyz to Kings youth practiced serving dinner to the young girls and women.

School Madison Enterprise-Recorder 7A www.greenepublishing.com Friday, September 27, 2013 Back To School...Stay In School Event A SuccessSubmitted by Jerome Wyche, Local Community OrganizerThe Madison County Prevention Coalition and its Partners had been planning the Back to SchoolStay in School event since May 2013 and were handsomely rewarded on event day, Aug. 10. Based on the latest count, more than 1600 parents and students attended the event. It began when President John Grosskopf of North Florida Community College gave his permission for us to use the Kelly Fitness Center on campus, and Superintendent of Schools Doug Brown provided a list of basic school supplies. The social media machine put out a media release for the local newspaper, WMAF Radio announcements, flyers, a Chamber of Commerce newsletter, and Facebook alerts. Final preparations began Monday, Aug. 5, as purchasers from the Madison County Sheriffs Office and Health Care Workforce Network of North Florida began purchasing designated supplies, itemized by grade level, from Freds Department Store. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority members made the primary purchase, which totaled over $8,000. Other purchases were made from CVS Drugstore, Harveys Grocery Store, and AARONs for another $1,225. Altogether, nearly $11,000 was spent in Madison County for school supplies. Thanks again to President Grosskopf, with the assistance of the NFCC Staff at the Kelly Fitness Center, all of the supplies were delivered to the multipurpose room. Tri-County Medical of Greenville, Century Link, Virtual School of Florida, and the Department of Health in Madison County provided a generous donation of backpacks. An enormous outpouring of Prevention Coalition members and other volunteers, including Boyz To Kings, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, parents, students, citizens, and school district employees gathered at Kelly Fitness Center on Thursday evening, Aug. 8, at 6 p.m., where they had a fun time in an atmosphere filled with laughter, as they filled 1500 book bags with the school supplies. At approximately 8:30, the NFCC Campus and the areas in and around the fitness center began to take shape. The stations for all grade levels from Pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade were organized, the book bags were neatly stacked, refuse receptacles were in position, and the 40 X 80 tent, donated by Jim Holben, the local Tent Builder, had been set. Friday morning, Aug. 9, volunteers were busy with a little fine-tuning, minor cleaning and final purchases of event items, as well as picking up 2000 donated hot dog buns from Harveys Grocery Store. Station presenters set up their tables with information pamphlets and giveaways as they prepared for Saturday morning. The Madison County Health Department positioned and secured two of their mobile health vans on the South parking lot, ready to provide services and information to parents and students on event day. Saturday morning began at dawn for some participants, picking up donated hotdogs from Stahl-Meyers and attending to final housekeeping chores. School officials, parents, students, volunteers, presenters, and donors came in as early as 8:30 a.m. Emergency responders, including the Madison County Sheriffs Office, Madison Police Department, Madison County Fire Department, and the Emergency Management Service positioned their vehicles in the parking lot. To round things out, Department of Transportation sent in their Flow Mobile to assist citizens with new driver license applications, renewals, and vehicle registration. At 10 a.m., where the Madison Media Group provided tickets to all students and controlled the entry to the gymnasium seating area. The 45minute presentation to parents and students began with a prayer, singing of the National Anthem, and the Pledge of Allegiance by Boyz to Kings. Dr. Gregory J. Harris, Executive Director, Health Promotion Program Initiatives, and Reverend Margie Evans, Chairperson for the Madison Prevention Coalition brought welcoming remarks on behalf of the Coalition. Desmond Robinson, a local recording artist, entertained the audience with one of his latest selections and Christian Moms on a Mission followed with a liturgical dance performance from some of their young dancers. Cindy Vees, Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce, recognized persons and agencies for their unselfish donations. Superintendent of Schools Doug Brown brought the final remarks, as he thanked the parents and students for their attendance, donors for their kind contributions, and set the stage for an aggressive and prosperous 2013 -2014 school year. Three students were the lucky winners of electronic notebooks, donated by the Madison School District, and were given away during door prize drawings. The presentation concluded at 10:45 a.m., to coincide with the readiness of TCEC General Manager Julius Hackett and his team of Master Grillers, who grilled and served hotdogs and passed out cold, bottled water donated by Aarons Furniture Store. Several attendees declared, This was one of the best events we have ever attended.

School8AMadison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, September 27, 2013 GED Program Continues Strong TraditionStory submittedWhen the Madison County School District resumed administration of local GED classes as part of its Adult Education program four years ago, few anticipated such exceptional results. Rural communities the size of Madison County, which feature small populations over larger areas, typically lack the student trafc needed to generate numerous graduates. Fortunately, what the community lacks in numbers is more than offset by its commitment to success. These students are family to me, noted GED Instructor Sharon French, and good relationships are essential to success. Many of these wonderful men and women sacrice a lot to return to the classroom. Forming a dynamic duo with teaching partner, Michael Curtis, the team frequently reminds each student that education is key to their future, also encouraging each to stay the course when lifes setbacks occur. Simply put, the GED staff recognizes that many of the same issues that caused these students to drop out in the rst place will often reoccur, and that it will be the personal relationships that keep students connected. We use modern, online technology, as well as traditional one-on-one approaches to prepare our students, but students differ tremendously. A few need little more than a refresher, but this is rare; most students require at least six months or more of class time, Curtis stated. Thats a signicant commitment; so, we owe it to each of them to deliver on our expectations for those who are willing to do the work, he added. Adult Education Director Paula Ginn and Administrator Kathy Smith round out the team, providing the oversight and support services required for continued success. Providing recruiting and post-graduate counseling, the administrative team is similarly dedicated, working closely with community partners, North Florida Community College and the North Florida Workforce Development Board, which also provides computers and classroom space adjacent to their ofce, which is located in the Harveys Plaza on Base Street. We are appreciative of all the valuable resources and time that our community partners, instructors, and staff provide to ensure the continued strength of our GED program, Ginn noted. We encourage interested students and their families to contact us today for more information. There are so many more we would like to assist with this worthwhile endeavor, she went on to say. To enroll in GED classes, or for more information on ways to assist this important program in Madison County, please contact Kathy Smith at (850) 973-5022, or email her at kathy.smith@madisonmail.us.

LATMA Christian Academy Celebrates National Constitution WeekBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Together with several Madison community leaders, LATMA Christian Academy Students helped celebrate National Constitution Week on the Madison County Courthouse steps with songs, recitals and a skit. For the last ten years, LATMA students have held the mock signing of the Constitution on the courthouse steps, where, with the help of their teach ers, parents, and county ofcials, they re-enact a fundamental part of American history. In fact, studies of the American Constitution and how it works has gotten the students excited about the upcoming election of their own student body government, with the Madison County Supervisor of Elections helping orchestrate the voting process. Assembling on the courthouse steps, the children recited the Preamble to the Constitution, saluted the American and Christian flags as well as the Bible, recited the Lords Prayer in both English and Swahili, recited the books of the Bible and sang songs of praise and patriotism, concluding with This Land is Your Land. Several community leaders from the audience, including Jerome Wyche, Rev. Octavious Tookes, Superintendent of Schools Doug Brown and Michael Curtis, joined the students on the courthouse steps for the performance of a skit entitled A More Perfect Union to conclude their presentation.

In both matches, the Lady Panthers took the lead early and kept adding to it, with coordinated group efforts and single hits that kept the ball flying back over the net into the opponents court. A few netballs and missed shots didnt slow them down much and certainly didnt stand in the way of a handy victory at the end. They worked hard and really stepped up to the plate, said volleyball coach Cathy Rogers afterward. They did great.Greene Publishing, Inc.

Were going to the beach. So we can sh of course, in the water! Lets say (again hypothetically) that you have lived in Florida for over a year now and should probably know a lot about its recreational pastimes, but that youve really been too busy to do too much, especially anything involving the beach because living in the most northern part of Florida doesnt exactly give you quick access. Hypothetically, of course, you would say, oh, okay. Then the entire time youre there, you would wonder if youre doing something illegal by shing without a license. Just so you never have to go through this scenario, let me give you some upfront information that will help you to avoid any situations similar to the hypothetical one Ive just described above. First of all, the correct answer would be, Okay, but well have to get you a saltwater shing license too. There are two kinds of saltwater licenses. One is a regular shing license that is specically for saltwater shing and necessary if you will be doing any shing from a boat. The second type of license is designed for shing described in the story. Its a resident recreational saltwater shoreline shing license. It is for anglers who sh from shore or a structure afxed to shore, or if you wade into the water where you can still stand on bottom. It covers shing with a hook and line, but does not cover shing for crab, lobster, snook, tarpon or clams. Anything you would collect by hand, with baskets, traps or nets is not covered. All residents are required to have this license except for those who are exempt: children under 16, adults over 65, the permanently disabled, active military personnel who are on leave, food stamp recipients, anglers who sh from a licensed pier and anyone already having a regular saltwater shing license. The license is free and can be obtained from retail stores like sporting goods stores, hunting and shing stores and tax collectors ofces. You can also buy the license over the phone and online, but you will be charged a few dollars for a convenience fee. The license will remain valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. If you plan to sh in Florida waters the rest of your life, a Lifetime License might be more suited for you. It will cost you, but the price is reasonable for a lifetime of shing without ever worrying about annual renewal. Children four years and younger pay $126.50, children ages 512 pay $226.50 and persons 13 years and above will pay $301.50. If you ever move away from Florida, the lifetime license will still be valid for anytime you return to sh. What about the hypothetical friend visiting from outside Florida? Unfortunately, they will have to purchase a regular saltwater shing license, because the shoreline license is only available to residents. That friend who packed their rods and poles in their trunk will have to pay $17 for three days, $30 for seven days and if they plan on hanging around a year, will pay $47 for their visit. If youve ever wondered why we have to pay for a shing license, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation helps explain. Fishing licenses go towards building and repairing ramps and docks, they fund fresh and saltwater sheries conservation projects such as habitat restoration, sh stocking, articial reef construction and youth shing clinics. So, buying a license directly helps support sport shing restoration and contributes to future sheries resources. So the next time the hypothetical pole-toting friend comes to town, you can be prepared. And maybe that time, they can actually catch some sh. 10AMadison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, September 27, 2013 Over 100 years ago, hunters and anglers were the earliest and most vocal supporters of conservation and scientic wildlife management. They were the rst to recognize that rapid development and unregulated uses of wildlife were threatening the future of many species. Led by fellow sportsman President Theodore Roosevelt, these early conservationists called for the rst laws restricting the commercial slaughter of wildlife. They urged sustainable use of sh and game, created hunting and shing licenses, and lobbied for taxes on sporting equipment to provide funds for state conservation agencies. These actions were the foundation of the North American wildlife conservation model, a science-based, user-pay system that would foster the most dramatic conservation successes of all time. Populations of white-tailed deer, elk, antelope, wild turkey, wood ducks and many other species began to recover from decades of unregulated exploitation. During the next half-century, in addition to the funds they contributed for conservation and their diligent watch over the returning health of Americas outdoors, sportsmen worked countless hours to protect and improve millions of acres of vital habitatlands and waters for the use and enjoyment of everyone. In the 1960s, hunters and anglers embraced the era's heightened environmental awareness but were discouraged that many people didn't understand the crucial role that sportsmen had played-and continue to play-in the conservation movement. The rst to suggest an ofcial day of thanks to sportsmen was Ira Joffe, owner of Joffe's Gun Shop in Upper Darby, Pa. In 1970, Pennsylvania Gov. Raymond Shafer adopted Joffe's idea and created "Outdoor Sportsman's Day" in the state. With determined prompting from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the concept soon emerged on the oor of the U.S. Senate. In June 1971, Sen. Thomas McIntyre, N.H., introduced Joint Resolution 117 authorizing National Hunting and Fishing Day on the fourth Saturday of every September. Rep. Bob Sikes, Fla., introduced an identical measure in the House. In early 1972, Congress unanimously passed both bills. On May 2, 1972, President Nixon signed the rst proclamation of National Hunting and Fishing Day, writing, "I urge all citizens to join with outdoor sportsmen in the wise use of our natural resources and in insuring their proper management for the benet of future generations." By late summer, all 50 governors and over 600 mayors had joined in by proclaiming state and local versions of National Hunting and Fishing Day. The response was dramatic. National, regional, state and local organizations staged some 3,000 "open house" huntingand shing-related events everywhere from shooting ranges to suburban frog ponds, providing an estimated four million Americans with a chance to experience, understand and appreciate traditional outdoor sports. Over the years, National Hunting and Fishing Day boasted many more public relations successes, assisted by celebrities who volunteered to help spotlight the conservation accomplishments of sportsmen and women. Honorary chairs have included George Bush, Tom Seaver, Hank Williams Jr., Arnold Palmer, Terry Bradshaw, George Brett, Robert Urich, Ward Burton, Louise Mandrell, Travis Tritt, Tracy Byrd, Jeff Foxworthy and many other sports and entertainment gures. National Hunting and Fishing Day, celebrated the fourth Saturday of every September, remains the most effective grassroots efforts ever undertaken to promote the outdoor sports and conservation.

Friends will be interested to know James Pafford, son of Mr. and Mrs. J.M. Pafford, left Monday for Miami Beach, where he began training as an aviation cadet. Troop 604 of Cherry Lake went on a sealed order hike Sunday afternoon about 2 or 2:30. The hike consisted of about 14 miles. Miss Dot Beggs of Tallahassee will spend the weekend with her mother, Mrs. Jim Beggs. September 25, 1953 Miss Robbie Cruce recently won the Grand Final Junior Championship Yo-Yo Contest at the Rose Theatre in Thomasville, Ga. Bobbie Ragans has returned to the University of Florida. Mr. and Mrs. Carl Rude were guests of Mrs. P.J. Parramore and Miss Phyllis Parramore Sunday evening. Dr. W.J. Coggins, Jr. and daughter, Pamela, of Boca Grande, were weekend guests of his mother, Mrs. W.J. Coggins. September 27, 1963 John W. Paul, district governor of Lions International, will address the Madison Lions Club next Tuesday. School Supt. and Mrs. Grifn Bishop attended the meeting of County Superintendents in Gainesville from Wednesday until Friday. The Greenville cheerleaders sponsored a sock hop in the gym last Friday after the game with Cross City. Mr. Broadus Willoughby spent from Saturday until Thursday on a combined visit and business conference in Atlanta and Charlotte. From the May 1, 1980 edition of the Madison County Carrier Continuing his sermons from the Sermon on the Mount, Bro. Gabe preached from Matthew 5:17-20 Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Because He did not observe all the petty rules of Israels religious authorities, Jesus was accused of doing away with the Law and Prophets. Jesus came to fulfill the Old Testament. He did this is several ways: (1) He kept the regulations of the Old Testament perfectly, (2) He taught the true meaning of the Law (3) By His death as mankinds substitute He provided the way of salvation, and (4) He has fulfilled some and will fulfill all the stipulations of the New Covenant. God desires a righteousness based on faith, not on law and works. The contrast of the Law is drawn between Jesus and the Pharisees interpretation as seen in verse 20 Believers are to exceed or go beyond what the Pharisees taught. And Jesus meant in quality not quantity, Right living is motivated from within. The righteousness which exceeds comes from Christ, and is not manmade. Righteousness which qualifies us for the Kingdom of Heaven comes by faith in Christ, not through the Law.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 2B Homeowners Guide Madison Enterprise-Recorder Friday, September 27, 2013 Gulf Coast Supply and Manufacturing By Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc. Gulf Coast Supply and Manufacturing, started in 1996 by two brothers-in-law, John Sherrill and Jeff Reed, who had a dream of owning a metal roofing business, using handcrafted sheet metals. They opened their new business in the backside of an old fish house at Horseshoe Beach, a small fishing and scalloping village with a population of less than 300. They saved money, worked hard and created roof packages for Taylor County and surrounding areas, building a name for the business along with a reputation for being honest and loyal with their customers. After several years, they moved to a then recently retired, 26acre military base with a plan to build the best metal roofing manufacturing business in the state of Florida. They wanted to create a business culture that offered excellent products, but also focused on integrity and great customer service. Being an ex-fisherman, Brother Sherrill, as he is sometimes referred to, hired many hard working ex-fishermen, whom he felt a kinship with, and the company continued to grow and become known as a direct manufacturing company, where they sold their metal roofing directly to homeowners and contractors. In 2004, a string of Florida hurricanes, eventually to be called the hurricane train, devastated much of the state, but ended up being the catalyst that propelled the two brothers-in-laws business to further growth. Other companies began to struggle when shipments became impossible to receive, but Gulf Coast never closed their doors, and with many late night hours, worked even harder. During this time, metal roofing began gaining popularity when scores of homeowners watched as their traditional shingle-roofed homes were swept away by the hurricane clean up crews. Gulf Coast stayed loyal to their customers and didnt raise prices during this time of rebuilding. This surge of business, coupled with the integrity of Sherrill and Reed, propelled the Gulf Coast name even further. The debt-free company continued to grow and, in 2011, was acquired by a business investor who shared the companys vision to become Floridas largest and most trusted supplier of metal roofing. Gulf Coast Supply has recently secured their fourth location, a 100,000 square foot building in Sebring which they plan to develop into a fully functional south Florida manufacturing facility. Their fleet of knuckle-boom truck and trailers run the state daily, delivering roofing to homeowners who can now choose from eight different types of metal roofing with over 40 colors to choose from. An amazing new service is also available to make buying and installing a metal roof easier for the consumer called Proof My Roof. This free service allows you to upload a picture of your home directly to their website where they will superimpose all profiles and colors of roofing onto it, allowing you to make the right choice before purchasing your roof. Mark Risley, Director of Marketing, says that if you are considering a new roof, some things to keep in mind are durability, curb appeal, safety and energy efficiency. He says that metal roofs are very durable and have a long life span and added that Gulf Coast roofs have had over 100 wind-tunnel tests, collectively making for the best available warranties in the industry.

He states your curb appeal will also increase, due to metal roofs increasing popularity and color choices. And last, but certainly not least, in todays economy, he adds that metal roofing is extremely energy efficient because of the metals ability to reflect the suns rays, substantially lowering utility costs.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Homeowners Guide Madison Enterprise-Recorder Friday, Septe mber 27, 2013135B Using Generators Safely By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. More than halfway through August, it seems like summer flew by like one of those summer rainstorms that has come and gone for the last several weeks. School will be starting in a few days, and autumn begins shortly thereafter (Sept. 22), and all the summer things will be put away. But before everyone shifts toward settling in for the fall holidays, there is the small detail that hurricane season goes until Nov. 30, and in fact, the season hasnt even reached its peak yet that comes Sept. 10, as the sun heads south again, passing directly overhead and heating up oceans that have already been warmed all summer long, greatly increasing the potential for tropical storms and hurricanes. Along with potential storms are the potential power outages that can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days, depending on the storms severity. Some households will get through it with battery-powered lights, ice chests for food and gaspowered hot plates or barbecue grills for cooking, while others will be able to run the household off portable generators until the power comes back on. Things to think about: At first glance, portable generators seem like the ideal solution for those who dont want to depend on batteries that can be depleted and ice that will eventually melt no matter how well insulated the cooler, but along with their convenience, generators have the potential to be dangerous if used incorrectly, and homeowners should be well aware of the proper handling and safe use of generators. Number one on the list of safety precautions is to read all of the manufacturers instructions carefully and make sure you understand how the generator works and where it should be placed what you should do as well as what you shouldnt. Although reading the instructions should be something that goes without saying, FEMA reports that from 1999 through 2011, nearly 600 people died from generator-related carbon monoxide poisoning, from something as simple as improper placement people either placed the generators inside their homes, in their garages or basements, or if outside, too close to a window, door, or vent. One portable gaspowered generator can produce as much carbon monoxide as several hundred cars. Invisible and odorless, carbon monoxide can incapacitate and kill you within minutes. Safety tip number one is to follow the manufacturers instructions as to how far to place the device from your house. Safety tip number two is to have several battery-powered carbon monoxide alarms installed throughout your home, just in case (ideally, you would have these alarms up and running year round, changing the batteries in them whenever y ou change the batteries in your smoke alarms). For more detailed information on placement of generators in relation to your house, visit http://www.usfa.fema.gov /citizens/co/generator.sht m and click on the video presentation How Close is Too Close? Another consideration for placement of generators is its requirement for a patch of dry ground with some type of canopylike covering over it which may be one of the reasons people are tempted to run the things in their garages, discounting the danger. Canopy-like covering does not translate into the enclosed space of a garage, or even underneath an open carport, where the device will still be far too close to a door or window. Some generators may come with these special canopy-like coverings, or they may be purchased separately. The key thing is these covers are specially made to be used with generators, away from the house. Now, back to the requirement for a patch of dry ground: Much of Madison County, particularly the southern half, has a rather high water table much of the time, where water tends to stand in places. Does your yard tend to collect large areas of standing water after a rainstorm? If you have an outage due to a severe storm, how long will you have to wait before you can use your generator in that case? Can you build a cinderblock or other type of platform somewhere that you could use if necessary? Another thing to remember is that these machines generate power electricity to run household appliances, and presents all the inherent dangers of electrical power; the same dangers as the electricity that comes from the power company through the heavyduty utility lines and into your home. To illustrate, one 60watt light bulb pulls .5 amps, while .1 amps, or one-fifth the power needed to light that bulb, is enough to stop your heart. This is also the reason that generators should never be plugged directly into your homes electrical system; the back feed can make downed power lines from your house hot or live, posing a danger to utility workers sent out to repair them. Only the appliances you need to power should be plugged into the generator. These are all things to think through before you buy a generator, but there are other important considerations as well, such as what you want to power with it. Freezer? Refrigerator? Lights (how many lights and how much wattage)? Calculate how many things you might need to run at the same time to determine your maximum wattage needs. As an example, a typical hairdryer pulls 1900 watts and a typical coffeemaker, 600 watts. The average total wattage pulled for an average 1500-squarefoot-home on a typical day is about 13,000 to 15,000 watts, assuming the use of air-conditioning. However, if you think about it and prioritize, can you tolerate two or three days without air-conditioning? If so, you may lower your wattage needs considerably. Each generator is rated for a certain amount of wattage, which limits the number of appliances it can safely power. For example, a typical small generator rated for 3000 watts can run a few lights, fans and a refrigerator. If it is used to start and run only one major item at a time, it can run a half-horsepower pump or a small window air conditioner of about 5000 BTUs. Also, you dont have to run everything at the same time. If youre good at math (for calculating wattage loads) and dont mind switching out appliances, you can rotate the larger items and get by with a smaller generator, which is cheaper to buy and easier to move. Just dont overload your generator; you could end up damaging the appliances youre trying to power. All these things should be considered before you buy your first generator, well before storm season, and certainly long before a hurricane or other severe storm is on the way. If you wait until the middle of a hurricane, there will be little time to figure out exactly what you need; even if you know what you want, the size and type of generator youre looking for may be sold out. Buying a generator is a considerable investment for most homeowners, and you certainly wont get the best deal by waiting until the last minute. Getting ready for storm season: Assuming you already have a generator that suits your needs, early spring is the time to take it out of storage, drain the old gasoline from the tank (make sure you dispose of it properly) and inspect the fuel line for cracks or damage. If you find any, replace the line. Refill the tank with fresh gasoline and run the generator. Plug in one or two small appliances (such as a light or hairdryer) to make sure its running properly. After about 15 minutes running time, turn off the fuel valve and let the fuel line dry. After the engine stalls, turn off the run switch, change the oil, add fuel stabilizer to the gasoline, and drain the carburetor float bowl, and put the generator back ...Story continued on 6B...

On the other hand, if you experience any kind of trouble with your generator, this is the time to take it to the repair shop. If you wait until a storm is approaching or the middle of hurricane season, you may find a lot of people ahead of you. While youre inspecting your generator, inspect all of your extension cords for any cracks or damage, and replace them if necessary. Getting started: Never refuel a generator while it is running, or while it is hot. Wait for it to cool down first. Turn off all connected appliances before starting it up again. After you have it running, turn the appliances back on one at a time. Make sure you never exceed the recommended wattage. Getting the most from your generator: Dont leave a running generator unattended; turn it off at night or when you need to be away from home. Remember that appliances such as refrigerators only need to run a few hours a day to keep food cold enough. Use a refrigerator thermometer and aim for 40 degrees in the fridge and zero in the freezer. Save gas by shutting off the generator if youre not running any appliances; if youre only using a few lights, another energy source such as batteries may be more cost effective than using your generator. After the storm season: Fill the tank with fresh gasoline. Add fuel stabilizer. Drain the carburetor float bowl. Change the engine oil, if needed. LOCK IT UP AND CHAIN IT DOWN. $1000 generators get stolen frequently, and an unsecured generator sitting under an open carport is a very tempting target for thieves.

Madison County Extension Can Help Grow Your Garden By Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc. Home gardening is on the rise around the nation, and for many good reasons. Vegetable gardening produces fresh and tasteful vegetables, but it also gives many intrinsic, as well as financial benefits. The first advantage home gardening gives you is control. You can decide what to grow and can increase your choices by planting your own vegetables. Using tomatoes as an example, instead of the usual grocery store varieties of cherry, pear and slicing tomatoes, growing your own can give you those, with additional choices of yellow, black, beefsteak, hybrid, heirloom, striped and the list goes on. Another form of control is how you grow your vegetables. You control the fertilizer and any pesticide you may use in your garden so theres no worry what your vegetables may have been exposed to or how they were grown. It goes without saying that produce you grow yourself will be fresher, but that important fact means you will have more flavor and nutrients in your produce, and certainly will have no reason to gas or wax your vegetables to keep them shelf stable as you can eat or share them as soon as they are picked. Growing your own produce can be cheaper than store...Story continued on 8B... Greene Publishing, Inc.

bought vegetables. Even though you buy seeds or bedding plants and fertilizer, you get many vegetables from one plant, increasing your shopping budget. Gardening is a healthy hobby, giving you exercise and fresh air and it also improves mental health. Texas A & M University conducted a study that showed people who garden had significantly more optimism and a greater zest for life than non-gardeners. With all these benefits, gardening may be sounding like something you want to try but may not know where to start, or maybe you already garden and are having a little problem with your green thumb, or maybe even you want to try and expand your gardening knowledge by using some different methods or techniques. If so, you should know about your local extension office. The Madison County Extension Office has more information on gardening than you could possibly digest in one sitting at the computer and if you have never utilized the extensions services, you should be aware of the plethora of information that is available to every citizen in this county. Dan Fenneman is the extensions Agriculture Agent and can assist you with any gardening related questions or issues you may have. When talking with Fenneman in his office, it was apparent that not all residents are in the dark about the services the extension provides as he produced stacks of phone messages he had received on every agricultural topic imaginable. Fenneman pulled up the Madison Extension website where it covered information that would assist a novice gardener, but also listed projects that even seasoned backyard growers might not have delved into. You can learn about soil testing, vegetable gardening, butterfly gardening, pests and diseases, organic gardening, producing peanuts for the home garden, water gardens and hydroponic gardening. Also on the site is a list of classes that Fenneman teaches or assists with. Not all classes are taught here in Madison, he said, but in Live Oak at the Suwannee Valley Agricultural Extension Center due to their expansive gardening program there. An example of a class offered is one that is scheduled there for this coming Saturday. The center is holding a Mixed Fruit and Nut Orchard Field Day discussing potential orchard crops for North Florida. The cost is only $15 and for information, a folder-full of materials and even light refreshments, you can see why their classes become full so quickly. The Madison County Extension Office is located at 184 College Loop in Madison. You can visit their website at www.Madison.ifas.ufl.edu and easily spend hours searching all the information offered there. Be sure to check out all the links that will direct you to even more agriculture related topics such as beekeeping, herbs, organics and an Events Calendar that shows all North Florida Extension offerings. You can also call Dan Fenneman with your gardening or other agricultural questions and concerns at (850) 973-4138 where he will be happy to help you. When discussing the many phone calls he receives, he says that it is the largest part of his day and adds, answering questions for Madison clients is my job, we (extension agents) are here to educate the community.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Homeowners Guide Madison Enterprise-Recorder Friday, Septe mber 27, 2013139B Florida Housing Launches Hardest-Hit Fund Principal Reduction Program During a press conference on Friday, Sept. 20, Florida Housing Finance Corporation (Florida Housing) announced that this week, Florida homeowners who have remained current on their mortgages may apply for federal assistance from the Florida Hardest-Hit Fund Principal Reduction (HHF-PR) Program. The online application, www.PrincipalReducti onFLHHF.org, opened at 9 a.m. (Eastern) on Friday, Sept. 20, and is available in all 67 counties. This morning, Florida Housings Board of Directors approved $350 million in federal Hardest-Hit funds allocated to our state to be used specifically for a principal reduction program, said Steve Auger, executive director of Florida Housing. While our states housing market continues to recover, many Florida homeowners have remained current on their mortgage payments in spite of their homes being substantially underwater. For those who qualify, this new program can help to reduce their principal balance, which can result in a lower monthly payment and put more money in their pockets. Initially, only 25,000 completed and submitted applications will be accepted for eligibility determination, via the website only. When that number has been reached, the ability to start a new application will be disabled so that staff can begin processing the completed applications. However, if additional funding is available for the program after this initial launch, Florida Housing will notify the public prior to re-opening the application process. The Florida HHFPR program is designed to provide up to $50,000 to eligible homeowners who owe at least 125% more on their home than its current market valuecommonly known as having a home that is underwater. Funds will be applied to reduce the principal balance of the first mortgage to reduce the loan-tovalue (LTV) of the first mortgage to no less than 100%. The mortgage can then be recast (re-amortized) or refinanced to produce a lower monthly mortgage payment. The minimum qualifications a homeowner must meet to be considered for participation in the Florida HHF-PR program are as follows: Must be a Florida resident and a legal US resident/legal alien, and occupy the property as the primary residence; Must be current on the monthly mortgage paymentfirst mortgage payment cannot have been 60 or more days late within the past 24 months; The first mortgage must have originated prior to January 1, 2010; The unpaid principal balance for the first mortgage cannot exceed $350,000; The loan-to-value for the first mortgage must be greater than 125%in other words, home must be more than 125% underwater; and The total household income, including all persons age 18 years and older who live in the home, must be less than 140% of the area median income.

Housing Launches Hardest-Hit Story cont. from 9B 10B Homeowners Guide Madison Enterprise-Recorder Friday, September 27, 2013 in the form of a zero percent, deferred-payment loan that will be subordinate to current mortgages on the home. The loan can be forgiven over a five-year period, at a rate of 20% each year. For conventional mortgages, once HHF-PR funds are applied to the principal, the mortgage will be recast (the terms of the loans will remain the same, but the loan will be re-amortized). If the borrower has a FHA, VA or USDA-RD mortgage, the mortgage will need to be refinanced within 120 days after closing on HHF principal reduction funds in order to receive the pro rata forgiveness. If a refinance is not completed within the specified time, the principal reduction loan will be 100% forgiven after a full five years of the borrower remaining in the home. Homeowners in every Florida county may apply for the Florida HHF-PR program by using the official website: www.PrincipalReduct ionFLHHF.org. The site contains all the information users will need to begin the application process, including a program fact sheet and answers to frequently asked questions. Additionally, the Florida HHF Toll-free Information Line [1(877)-863-5244] was open on Saturday, September 21, and Sunday, September 22, from 9:00 a.m. 5:00 p.m. to answer any questions callers may have about the program. The official Florida HHF-PR website is the only way a homeowner can apply for assistance. Therefore, homeowners should verify that they are using www.PrincipalReduct ionFLHHF.org before providing personal information via the web. If applicants are suspicious about a website, they can submit a report on the official HHF-PR website by clicking the Report Fraud link on the homepage. Also, they may call the Florida HHF Tollfree Information Line to ensure they are using the correct website address. Application for the Florida HHF-PR program is FREE-OFCHARGE, and applicants will not be asked to pay for any eligibility determination services in conjunction with applying for the program. First announced on Feb. 19, 2010, by the US Department of the Treasury (Treasury), the Housing Finance Agency (HFA) Innovation Fund for the Hardest-Hit Housing Markets (HFA Hardest-Hit Fund) provides federal funding to states hardest hit by the aftermath of the burst of the housing bubble. To date, $7.6 billion has been infused into the HFA Hardest-Hit Fund for 18 states and the District of Columbia; Floridas allocation stands at more than $1 billion. The goal is to help create sustainable homeownership in our state.
