The hospital board said they wanted a fresh start for the Madison County Memorial Hospital when they chose the name Faith Community Hospital for the brand new, stateof-the-art facility currently under construction, but when news of the name change began circulating, it was not glad tidings to several Madison County residents. A group of residents attending the Dec. 19 hospital board meeting said they felt left out of the decision-making process, and that the decision itself took them all by surprise. However, the hospital board maintained that their meetings were open to the public, properly advertised, and that the name change was not secret or sudden, but had been a long, carefully considered process that surveyed hospital employees and many other people who were deeply vested in the hospital.Mostly, the citizens group seemed unhappy that Madison had been eliminated entirely from the new name, and several asked about possibilities of going back to the old name or coming up with a compromise that would put Madison or Madison County back in, somehow. Raye Wooley, the rst to speak, emphasized that the citizens of Madison felt slighted by the fact that Madison was missing entirely from the new name. We were born in Madison. We grew up in Madison. We want the name Madison involved somehow, she said. We didnt know this was going on and we didnt think it was fair for the hospital board, doctors and nurses to pick a name without consulting the people paying for it. She liked anything with Madison in the name, she told the board. Because you know where youre going. Faith Community? That could be anywhere. Then, there was the matter of the half-cent sales tax that had been in place for years. People of Madison had been paying that halfcent for a very long time, and were glad to see the new hospital taking shape. We appreciate everything...all yall have done, said Judy Bibb. I know a lot of faith went into it. But the people of the Madison community want their name in there. Its mainly our hospital...our community. I like Madison Community Hospital. Jackie Johnson added her words of thanks and appreciation, saying that it had been great to watch the new building go up. She had not heard about the new name change until a couple of days ago. Is there any way to get of Madison added (to the end)? Board member Howard Phillips replied that the signage was already in production, because it was on the USDA checklist of things that had to beSee Protest On Page 3 Greene Publishing, Inc.

Ted Yoho, Johnson, Hardee Help Soldier Return Home After Grandfather Passes AwayBy Jacob BembryGreene Publishing, Inc. Authors Note: Because of some mistakes made by the author in this article, which ran last Friday, we are rerunning it today. We apologize for the errors. When Jamie Maxwell, grandson of a Madison County man, was not allowed to leave Afghanistan to attend his grandfathers funeral, two Madison County men, including the Supervisor of Elections and a Madison County Sheriffs deputy, went to work looking to help him and they found help through Rep. Ted Yohos ofce. According to Sheriffs Sgt. Brad Johnson, Royce Hutchinsons family had contacted him, after Hutchinson had died, to see what he could do about getting Maxwell home for the funeral. Johnson contacted the Veterans Administration and the Red Cross, who offered little hope since it was Hutchersons grandson and not his own son. The grandsons stepfather had murdered the boys mother when he was seven years old and he had stayed with his grandfather a while during his formative years. Johnson contacted Hardee, who immediately contacted a number of elected ofcials,Photo submittedUS Rep.

Rick Scott had removed Williams from ofce Nov. 1, 2011, after she was arrested, along with eight other people, in an alleged voter fraud case. The charges were dismissed April 15, 2013, after her term had already expired. Williams had led a claim against the county for back pay and benets she lost during the time of her suspension, in the amount of $106,622.60. Additionally, she and her attorneys had led a separate claim for $51,297.46 in attorneys fees, for a total of $157,920.06 Reeves told the commissioners that they did not have any good legal grounds for avoiding the attorney fees, since Williams had prevailed. However, the question of back pay was less clear-cut. She was exonerated, and the state did not appeal, but it was after her term was already over. Otherwise, there would have been little question of not only back pay, but re-instatement as well. One of the commissioners asked if the fact of the governor himself removing her from ofce made any differJada WilliamsGreenville Town Council Holds Public HearingBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.The Town of Greenville will meet in a special session Monday evening, Dec. 30, beginning at 6 p.m., for the purpose of a public hearing for the proposed changes to the town charter.

Jacobs Ladder Keeping youth active during the holidays can be quite a challenge, especially when all they want to do is relax and recover from their busy rst semester of school. Living in the south we are fortunate to have milder winters, which allow us to enjoy the outdoors long into our cold season. Winter break is a perfect time to encourage youth to get outdoors, stay active, and make up for the long hours of sitting in a classroom. The vitamins we absorb from the sun can help ward off depression and lethargy during the shorter days. Remember the combination of school (or work) stress, holiday bustle, and lack of sunshine can lead to abnormal behavior in youth and adults. Keep an eye on those around you who may start showing signs of depression and encourage them to join you in a long walk or a fun game of football. If the signs seem to worsen or you feel the person may need further help, contact a professional or consult one of the many hotlines available; a list can be found at www.dosomething.org. To encourage your family to stay t and active during the holidays, challenge them to participate in a Family Challenge. Set a goal and family prize if that goal is met (i.e.: all family members complete 25 out of the 30 day challenges equals a bowling trip). Here is an example of a 30 day challenge, feel free to use this as a template to tailor to your familys needs: Days 1-3: Race one family member to the mailbox and back. Add more laps if short distance. Days 4-6: Do 10 sit-ups, 10 push-ups, and 10 jumping jacks three times. Days 7-9: Do 30 minutes of outdoor activities (bike, play a sport, run laps, hike, garden, etc.) Days 10-12: Complete 15 minutes of cardio (jump rope, hula hoop, jog, jumping jacks, mountain climbers, etc.) and 15 minutes of yoga, Pilates, or stretching. Days 13-15: Do 10 forward lunges for each leg, 10 squats, and 10 seconds of plank (holding a push-up position on your forearms). Days 16-18: Do 15 sit-ups, 15 push-ups, and 15 jumping jacks three times. Days 19-21: Do 45 minutes of outdoor activities (bike, play a sport, run laps, hike, garden, etc.) Days 22-24: Do 20 forward lunges for each leg, 20 squats, and 20 seconds of plank (holding a push-up position on your forearms). Days 25-27: Do 20 sit-ups, 20 push-ups, and 20 jumping jacks three times. Days 28-30: Do 60 minutes of outdoor activities (bike, play a sport, run laps, hike, garden, etc.) As always if you have a youth development topic that you would like to see addressed in this column please contact Becky Bennett at 973-4138 or via email bvbennett@u.edu.

Its obvious that he is the aggressor as he snarls and spits out words that are intended to defeat me before the match even begins. As he goes on and on, I dont hear anything, except for the sound of flashing bulbs from cameras, the referees instructions and the roar of the crowd. Although I hear these sounds, their volume is low. Although I see the cameras flashing and the people in the crowd, my sight is dimmed. I tap gloves with my opponent and begin to retreat to the corner to await the bell. Pow! Before I get to my corner, a jarring blow floors me to the back of my head. Where did that come from? Someone reaches down His hand and helps me up. He has helped me up, time and time again when I have been knocked to the floor. Many others have crumbled under the will of the malevolent force that tries to attack my body and my soul, but God reaches down and lifts me up and whispers to me, Fight on, son. Many times, God sends other peoples hands to help when I am lying on the floor in a crumpled mess. Whether others are helping or not, though, God is always there, telling me once again, Fight on, son. One thing I never have to fight for is forgiveness for my sins. Gods Son, Jesus, fought that battle approximately 2,000 years ago when He died for my sins and was resurrected to free me from my sins. Because He did that, I can fight on. 2Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, December 27, 2013 Jacob BembryColumnist Conservative Corner Conservative CornerBy Steve Phillips H4: Head, Heart, Hands, & Health: Holiday StressH a p p y N e w Y e a r Our hearts are strengthened by hope. At this time of year, all across the world, people follow traditions that have been practiced for generations. Travel and Leisure lists the following interesting New Year traditions at: http://www.travelandleisure.com/ar ticles/worldsstrangest-new-yeartraditions/14. South Africa. In downtown Joburg, locals throw old appliances out the window. Melanie Lieberman Colombia Hoping for a travelfilled year, residents tote empty suitcases around the block. Melanie Lieberman Japan. The faithful wear a costume of the next years zodiac animal (in 2014: a horse) to the local temple, where bells chime a sacred 108 times. Melanie Lieberman Denmark. Danes ring in the New Year by hurling old plates and glasses...against the doors of friends and relatives houses. They also stand on chairs and then jump off them together at midnight. Leaping into January is supposed to banish bad spirits and bring good luck. Spain. At midnight on New Years Eve, its customary in Spain to quickly eat 12 grapes (or uvas)one at each stroke of the clock. Each grape supposedly signifies good luck for one month of the coming year. In Madrid, Barcelona, and other Spanish cities, revelers congregate in the main squares to gobble their grapes together and pass around bottles of cava. Finland. Its a longtime Finnish tradition to predict the coming year by casting molten tin into a container of water, and then interpreting the shape the metal takes after hardening. A heart or ring shape means a wedding in the New Year; a ship forecasts travel; and a pig shape signifies plenty of food. Scotland. During the New Years Eve celebration of Hogmanay, firstfooting is practiced all over Scotland. The custom dictates that the first person to cross the threshold of a home in the New Year should carry a gift for luck (whiskey is the most common). The Scots also hold bonfire ceremonies, most notably in the small fishing village of Stonehaven, where townsmen parade while swinging giant fireballs on poles overhead (supposedly symbols of the sun, to purify the coming year). Philippines. Round shapes (representing coins) are thought to symbolize prosperity for the coming year in the Philippines; many Filipino families display heaps of round fruits on the dining table for New Years Eve. Other families are more particular; they eat exactly 12 fruits at midnight (grapes, which are also eaten at midnight in Spain, are easiest). Still others wear New Year polka dots for luck. Central and South America In Brazil, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Venezuela, its considered lucky to wear special underwear on New Years Eve; in cities like So Paulo and La Paz, market vendors start displaying brightly colored underpants a few days before the holiday. The most popular colors are red and yellow: red is supposed to bring love in the coming year, and yellow is supposed to bring money. It almost seems that by opening a new calendar, we are presented with 365 new, bright, shiny days of unlimited promise. May God give us the wisdom to keep the brightness of hope in each of those new days in 2014. HAPPY NEW YEAR!THE REPUBLICAN CLUB OF MADISON COUNTY Meets Monday, January 13, 2014, at noon at Shelby's Restaurant EVERYONE WELCOME Paid for and approved by the Madison County Republican Executive Committee MadisonRepublican@embarqmail.com Fight On M a d i s o n C o u n t y E x t e n s i o n S e r v i c e Becky V. BennettGuest Columnist Something To Think AboutBy Harvey Greene We always talk about priorities. What is really important to us in life? Recently Ive seen a lot of babble over a television show. Apparently, the A&E Network has suspended Phil Robertson, the patriarch of their hit show Duck Dynasty due to some comments he made during an interview. As I understand it, people are outraged and are writing letters, talking boycotts, and other such uproar. A few months ago, another reality show on A&E, Storage Wars, was in the news when one of its stars sued the show because, as he alleges in his lawsuit, they were rigging some of the auctions. Really? You mean they thought we didnt know that already? As to the Duck Dynasty incident, rst and foremost this is NOT a freedom of speech issue. Phil Robertson had full freedom of speech, which he exercised. A&E had full freedom of speech which they exercised by denouncing him, just as all those who are outraged are exercising their freedom of speech by complaining about what happened. Freedom of speech does not say that there are not repercussions for what you say. If you work for a company, and start making statements that insult your boss, you should expect them to be upset. No one has said Phil Robertson did not have the right to say anything. This is not a freedom of speech issue. Secondly, before you get too upset at A&E, please take a moment and actually read what he said in the interview. This is not simply a Christian vs. non-Christian matter. One of the primary reasons, again from my understanding and reading, was the actual language he used. For those that did not read it, this was not a simple statement about gay rights. Mr. Phil discussed the difference between heterosexual and homosexual relations in rather, uhm, how shall we say, medical language. I will not delve further because I do not consider his language appropriate for printing in my column. And Im a medical practitioner. Before you defend his position, and yell at A&E for their actions, ask yourself this How would you like Phil Robertson to come to your Sunday School class, or your pulpit, and explain to your congregation the explicit differences in sexual preference? And I mean EXPLICIT. Really? Maybe you should read what he said before you judge. And read the WHOLE interview, not just the quotes handed you by someone who wants you on their side. Did you know that Mark Balelo, the ashy guy with the man purse on Storage Wars, committed suicide? Probably not; its not controversial enough to make the news. Truly sad, yes, but not marketable. Speaking of marketable, for the record, A&E Network reviewed the interview BEFORE it was published, and were allowed the opportunity to forbid it. They did not. Hmmm I am certainly not making any accusations, but they certainly are getting a lot of publicity by suspending one of their stars for making statements which they allowed him to say. Kinda makes a body think, dont it? Is this what is making you outraged? Call it reality TV if you want, but do you really think so? Are the Real Housewives of really housewives? Is Honey Boo-Boo real life? And I suppose professional wrestling is not choreographed? Finally, I ask you to consider something which is probably more important than any of the above comments. Is reality television really more important than reality? You are outraged over a television show, but not over hundreds of thousands of people in poverty? How about the students in our own backyard that are not getting an education because the law prefers graduation over learning? Shall I go on? Where are our priorities? So before you hear the gossip, and become outraged at the anti-Christian antics of a national marketing corporation, let us consider if reality television really the correct priority for us to dedicate our outrage. Think About It. Is It Really A Dynasty? Harvey GreeneGuest Columnist

ence in the countys favor, but Reeves replied that it did not. The tentative negotiated settlement reached between both sides, covering back pay, benets, attorneys fees and everything, came to a reduced amount of $100,747.46; of that, the county would pay $58,797.46, and the countys insurance carrier would cover the rest: $41,950. However, the deal needed the countys approval before it could go forward. The question Reeves put before the commission was: settle for this amount or ght? It would be cheaper by far to pay, but the commission did not have to be driven by economics. They could choose to ght the claim, have another action led and spend another several thousand in court costs and attorneys fees defending their side...plus, if they lost, attorneys fees for the other side. The county has paid several thousand on this case already. Commissioner Clyde Alexander made the motion to accept the settlement deal and make it all go away. Commissioner Wayne Vickers seconded. The board agreed, by a vote of 4-0. Commissioner Justin Hamrick was not present at the meeting. some who didnt even bother to return his calls. Despite the government shutdown at the time, though, Rep. Yoho (R-Jacksonville) called and told Hardee that he would work to get Maxwell back on American soil and that he would not take no for an answer. Yoho was able to contact a four-star general, who had earlier said that the young man would not be able to leave the front lines The grandson was finally able to make it back to the States. Although it was too late for the funeral, the funeral home had held the body so the young man could see it. The soldier also did not have to return to Afghanistan. done in a certain order and at a set time during the process, according to the rules, regulations and guidelines. The signs couldnt wait any longer. As for adding of Madison he said he would have to contact the sign company and see if it was still possible at this point. However, any and all documents going out of the hospital had of Madison, because is was required as part of the address. Are we too late? Bibb asked. Are we here in vain? Phillips seemed to think it was, indeed, too late in the process, but Jackie Johnson repeated her request that the board at least ask the sign company about the change. It wasnt just a matter of an address or name required by a post ofce; Madison, they seemed to feel, was a state of mind, a part of their identity, who they were, and it was something they wanted to see reected in their hospitals name. When Dale Sowell questioned why the board had taken the decision on themselves to begin with, board chair Annette Johnson described the survey process of hospital personnel and the fact that what came up again and again was that everyone felt that faith, prayer, and God were a big part of what the new hospital was all about. That was the Faith part of the name. The new hospital would serve not only Madison, but also Hamilton, Taylor, and Jefferson Counties. We wanted them all to feel welcome, said Annette Johnson, adding that Faith Community was meant to convey that inclusiveness. I love this hospital, she continued. Im very passionate about this hospital. Thats why Im on this board. Others pointed out that a new name would give the brand new hospital a fresh start, without all the negatives that were associated with the old name Madison County Memorial Hospital. MCMH had had its problems in the past; the board felt that the brand new state-of-the-art facility that was to replace it deserved a new name. Terry Falls told the board she believed it had made an error in judgment in not involving the community as well as the hospital employees; if people had issues with the MCMH name, there were issues with the name Faith as well as in, if you were going to go there, youd better have faith. Theres this sense of hubris, of the hospital board taking this (decision) on themselves without consulting the community...yet you ask us to support you. Phillips replied that when the board rst considered changing the name, he had been against the idea, but as the discussions had unfolded, he had come to see the value in the name change, and thought it would be a good thing. He also denied that the board had done anything in secret because all of the boards meetings were open to the public and had been posted at the courthouse according to the requirements of the Sunshine Law. Ive been doing this for years, board member Ben Harris added, and very few members of the public have ever shown up. Most people dont go to the courthouse every day, Falls pointed out, while conceding that the board had indeed followed the letter of the Sunshine Law. But the informal network is the most important current around here. Phillips added that Madison County was a statement of geography, not ownership, because Madison County did not in fact own the hospital; the Hospital District owned the hospital. Madison County did not fund the hospital, but it did help out with part of the hospitals indigent care cost. Hospital CEO David Abercrombie assured everyone that the indigent care was vetted, and that it was only for urgent cases or emergencies; these were people they were required by law to render care to, and the indigent care was like an insurance policy. Everything youve said is accurate, said Falls. But its presumptuous. We believe we contribute signicantly to this hospital. It behooves you to put yourselves in the shoes of those youll be serving. Weve been approached by people who both favored and opposed the named change. All we can do is what we honesty believe is best for the hospital, said Annette Johnson, adding emphatically, the name change was never meant to be a slap in the face. It was never meant to upset or offend anyone...but change is always going to upset somebody. Im proud of Madison County Memorial Hospital, said Sowell. I dont need a name change for that. Jackie Johnson added that it was the name Madison itself that people felt pride in. Annette Johnson explained that in the past, the name Madison had not been associated with quality health care; in fact, for a long time state rankings had relegated it to the bottom number 67 out of 67 counties in the area of healthcare. Now with the new building going up and other improvements in the number of services offered, the county had moved up to number 54. The name change was part of the new image that the hospital wanted to project. When you come to this hospital, you will get the care you need, she said. Im just overjoyed at what this will bring to Madison. Phillips added that the board could call the sign company and see if it were possible at this point to get of Madison County added to the signs, but that it might be too late. These were not hand-painted wooden signs, but $60,000 worth of professionally produced, commercial signs with raised lettering and preselected font/spacing. It would depend on what point of production the signs were in. Thank you for being here, board member Ben Harris told the group as everyone prepared to leave. Weve been trying for four and a half years to get people to come.From Page One Madison Enterprise-Recorder 3 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, December 27, 2013 World NewsBy Rose KleinTeen Couple Arrested After Teaching Child To Smoke Marijuana In New York, two teen parents from Mayville were arrested, along with the wifes father, for teaching their almost two-year-old child to smoke marijuana.

Crist won the jackpot from LOTTO Max, a subscription-based lottery game, and said donations from his winnings will be spread out over the course of several years. The rst charity to receive a donation will be the Tom Baker Cancer Center, who treated his wife for lung cancer prior to her death last year. Crist said his four children would help him decide which other charities will receive money.

To the ENTIRE CAST of Journey through BethlehemTHANKYOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!! No matter the part: guides, high priest, shopkeepers, soldiers, shepherds, angel chorus, kitchen staff, bakers of refreshments, seamstresses, market place folks, including Baby Jesus, and others: The production was phenomenal!!A Special Thank You The First Baptist History Committee would like to thank everyone in the community who participated in helping with the Treasures of Madison County event. We have collected $1,539.71 to date toward the upkeep of the 1898 Sanctuary, an historical landmark in Madison. The month of December is when Southern Baptist churches remember our international missionaries with the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering emphasis. The theme is Totally His: Heart, Hands, Voice. Each week during the month, we have been able to see a video clip of a missionary on the field telling how the Lottie Moon Christmas offering is beneficial to them. Use the prayer guide provided or Open Windows to pray for our missionaries. Our goal is $3500. We have collected nearly $2,100. This week our time of praise included One Small Child. The Christmas carols were Joy to the World! The Lord is Come and Angels We Have Heard on High. Christmas is about the Christ child and children. And how they did bring Christmas alive to us during the worship services this week!The annual Childrens Christmas Pageant under the direction of Martha Beggs and Martha Register was another success. Children participating were Josie Driggers, Jackson Kendrick, Katie Krell, Emma Grace Newman, Gracelynn Newsome, Lillian Washington, Gavin Bass, Marshall Pike, Riley Beggs, Parker Copeland, and Joshua Hill. The wardrobes were by Thelma DeHart. Sunday night the Children & Preschool choirs presented their Christmas song they had been learning. This writers favorite was I Have a Blanket Ill Share, a perfect song for preschoolers. It set me to thinking. What do I have I could share this Christmas or anytime with someone in need? The offertory was a special treat as Zachary Townsend, one of our older children, with his guitar accompanied Lynne Sapp on the piano as they played Silent Night. Great job, Zach. The worship choir sang a selection, Joseph Good, Joseph True, from the Christmas Cantata. Kara Washington blessed our hearts with her solo. Bro. Gabes sermon, entitled, The Birth of the Savior was based on Luke 2:1-7. And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city. Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger because there was no room for them in the inn. It came to pass. Almost like it was always inevitable anyway God was working, willing, and moving even through the action of free and powerful men. The Baby was born in Bethlehem through the most unpredictable circumstances. No matter the actual details of Jesus birth, it is noteworthy that verse seven is also a prophecy fulfilled. And so, because of Caesar Augustus administrative and perhaps military necessity, the prophecies were fulfilled. A Baby was born that would change the world. He would go on to live a perfect life. He would go on to teach with authority He would go on to heal many He would even go on to make the audacious claim that He could forgive sins. This Baby really does change everything, not just our outer appearance and shell. He can change your lives and mine for eternity Accept the presence of this Baby in your life as the best Christmas present ever!

MCCS Broncos Basketball Finishes Strong For DecemberAthlete With Madison Connections Receives ScholarshipSubmitted by Ted EnsmingerYoung Garrett Cave recently experienced a dream come true that many athletes aspire to. The senior, who plays baseball at South Sumter High School in Bushnell, signed a national Letter of Intent on Monday, Nov. 18, to play baseball for Florida International University in Miami. During this past spring, Garrett pitched for the South Sumter Raiders on their Varsity team. His stats for this spring included seven starts (record 4-0), 31 1/3 innings pitched, 38 strikeouts, 21 walks, and he only gave up five hits and three runs. His opponents batting average was an impressive .115. Garrett also received interest from other schools such as the University of North Florida, the University of Florida, Florida Gulf Coast, Florida Atlantic University, and the University of South Carolina. He decided that FIU was the right fit for him. Garrett is the son of Sim and Gail Cave of Bushnell. He is the great-grandson of the late S.H. Simmie and Monteen Moore of Madison, and the grandson of the late Bill Cave, and his grandmother Teenie Cave, who still lives in Madison. He is the nephew of Randy and Angela Cave and cousin to Joseph Cave, all of Madison. Cheers! Cheers! Cheers!

Not everybody celebrates the way we do, though. In England, the first person to cross your threshold in the New Year is your First Footer, or Lucky Bird, and will determine what kind of luck youll have throughout the year. In India, Hindus celebrate the New Year four times each year to welcome each of the four seasons. During Diwali, children light mustard oil lamps to attract the Goddess of Fortune to their homes. In France, the celebration lasts for a month. Friends exchange cards and enjoy Papillottes chocolates or candies with wrappers that pop like firecrackers when they are opened. In Denmark, people save china dishes to break on friends thresholds during the New Year. A pile of broken dishes outside your home on New Years Day is a good sign, showing that you have many friends. New Years traditions vary from country to country just as investment allocations vary from person to person. It may be a good idea to start the New Year off with a portfolio review. Well talk about your financial goals and the ways in which your risk tolerance may have changed during the past two years. We hope your New Year is filled with happiness!

As we reflect back on the end of our 15th year, it is so humbling to realize just how blessed we are. These blessings have come in the form of so many wonderful new friends and customers with relationships that we will treasure forever. We are so grateful for those of you who have made us your Automotive Dealer of choice. It has been a sincere pleasure serving you and your family while earning your trust & loyalty. We are encouraged about the upturn in the economy and certain that if we all unite together our nations future will be bright. We completed our first full year at the Chevrolet Dealership in Quitman. We are humbled by your overwhelming response to our offering the Chevy brand. The growth has been phenomenal, and we are excited about our expansion plans for 2014. It is an honor to now be able to offer you the sale and service of a full line of Chevrolet vehicles in Quitman; as well as Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, & Ram vehicles in both Valdosta & Quitman. We have only been able to accomplish so much because of the Lords favor and yours; we thank you both for that. We are extremely grateful to live in a community that values friendship, and a country, that thanks to so many brave young men and women, remains the enduring symbol of freedom throughout the world. Please take the time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas. In todays society, with so many distractions and secular groups trying to remove any resemblance of Christ from Christmas, I pray that you will focus on what is really important. This special season is about family, love, kindness, generosity, and the true peace on earth that began in a manger some 2000 years ago. With the birth of that child, who has been called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and the Prince of Peace we have been given hope and a destiny that will last for eternity. Scripture tells us that children are a true gift from the Lord. We thank our Heavenly Father for ours and for yours during this special season. I pray His blessings on you & your family this Christmas and throughout the New Year. Your friend in the car business, Cass

After impact, the pickup came to its nal rest position on the east shoulder of SR 53, just east of the area of collision facing east.

The hospital board said they wanted a fresh start for the Madison County Memorial Hospital when they chose the name “Faith Community Hospital” for the brand new, stateof-the-art facility currently under construction, but when news of the name change began circulating, it was not glad tidings to several Madison County residents. A group of residents attending the Dec. 19 hospital board meeting said they felt left out of the decision-making process, and that the decision itself took them all by surprise. However, the hospital board maintained that their meetings were open to the public, properly advertised, and that the name change was not secret or sudden, but had been a long, carefully considered process that surveyed hospital employees and many other people who were deeply vested in the hospital.Mostly, the citizens group seemed unhappy that “Madison” had been eliminated entirely from the new name, and several asked about possibilities of going back to the old name or coming up with a compromise that would put “Madison” or “Madison County” back in, somehow. Raye Wooley, the rst to speak, emphasized that the citizens of Madison felt slighted by the fact that “Madison” was missing entirely from the new name. “We were born in Madison. We grew up in Madison. We want the name ‘Madison’ involved somehow,” she said. “We didn’t know this was going on and we didn’t think it was fair for the hospital board, doctors and nurses to pick a name without consulting the people paying for it.” She liked anything with “Madison” in the name, she told the board. “Because you know where you’re going. ‘Faith Community?’ That could be anywhere.” Then, there was the matter of the half-cent sales tax that had been in place for years. People of Madison had been paying that halfcent for a very long time, and were glad to see the new hospital taking shape. “We appreciate everything...all ya’ll have done,” said Judy Bibb. “I know a lot of faith went into it. But the people of the Madison community want their name in there. It’s mainly our hospital...our community. I like ‘Madison Community Hospital.’” Jackie Johnson added her words of thanks and appreciation, saying that it had been great to watch the new building go up. She had not heard about the new name change until a couple of days ago. “Is there any way to get ‘of Madison’ added (to the end)?” Board member Howard Phillips replied that the signage was already in production, because it was on the USDA checklist of things that had to beSee Protest On Page 3 Greene Publishing, Inc.

Ted Yoho, Johnson, Hardee Help Soldier Return Home After Grandfather Passes AwayBy Jacob BembryGreene Publishing, Inc. Author’s Note: Because of some mistakes made by the author in this article, which ran last Friday, we are rerunning it today. We apologize for the errors. When Jamie Maxwell, grandson of a Madison County man, was not allowed to leave Afghanistan to attend his grandfather’s funeral, two Madison County men, including the Supervisor of Elections and a Madison County Sheriff’s deputy, went to work looking to help him and they found help through Rep. Ted Yoho’s ofce. According to Sheriff’s Sgt. Brad Johnson, Royce Hutchinson’s family had contacted him, after Hutchinson had died, to see what he could do about getting Maxwell home for the funeral. Johnson contacted the Veterans Administration and the Red Cross, who offered little hope since it was Hutcherson’s grandson and not his own son. The grandson’s stepfather had murdered the boy’s mother when he was seven years old and he had stayed with his grandfather a while during his formative years. Johnson contacted Hardee, who immediately contacted a number of elected ofcials,Photo submittedUS Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Jacksonville) helped a young soldier get home from Afghanistan when his grandfather died. The soldier, Jamie Maxwell, is shown with his wife, Brittany, and his son, Riley. See Soldier Returns Home On Page 3County Agrees To Settlement In Williams CaseBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.County Attorney Tommy Reeves told the Board of County Commissioners that the county’s attorneys have reached a tentative agreement for a settlement with former Supervisor of Elections Jada Williams.Gov. Rick Scott had removed Williams from ofce Nov. 1, 2011, after she was arrested, along with eight other people, in an alleged voter fraud case. The charges were dismissed April 15, 2013, after her term had already expired. Williams had led a claim against the county for back pay and benets she lost during the time of her suspension, in the amount of $106,622.60. Additionally, she and her attorneys had led a separate claim for $51,297.46 in attorneys’ fees, for a total of $157,920.06 Reeves told the commissioners that they did not have any good legal grounds for avoiding the attorney fees, since Williams had prevailed. However, the question of back pay was less clear-cut. She was exonerated, and the state did not appeal, but it was after her term was already over. Otherwise, there would have been little question of not only back pay, but re-instatement as well. One of the commissioners asked if the fact of the governor himself removing her from ofce made any differJada WilliamsGreenville Town Council Holds Public HearingBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.The Town of Greenville will meet in a special session Monday evening, Dec. 30, beginning at 6 p.m., for the purpose of a public hearing for the proposed changes to the town charter.

Jacobs Ladder Keeping youth active during the holidays can be quite a challenge, especially when all they want to do is relax and recover from their busy rst semester of school. Living in the south we are fortunate to have milder winters, which allow us to enjoy the outdoors long into our cold season. Winter break is a perfect time to encourage youth to get outdoors, stay active, and make up for the long hours of sitting in a classroom. The vitamins we absorb from the sun can help ward off depression and lethargy during the shorter days. Remember the combination of school (or work) stress, holiday bustle, and lack of sunshine can lead to abnormal behavior in youth and adults. Keep an eye on those around you who may start showing signs of depression and encourage them to join you in a long walk or a fun game of football. If the signs seem to worsen or you feel the person may need further help, contact a professional or consult one of the many hotlines available; a list can be found at www.dosomething.org. To encourage your family to stay t and active during the holidays, challenge them to participate in a Family Challenge. Set a goal and family prize if that goal is met (i.e.: all family members complete 25 out of the 30 day challenges equals a bowling trip). Here is an example of a 30 day challenge, feel free to use this as a template to tailor to your family's needs: Days 1-3: Race one family member to the mailbox and back. Add more laps if short distance. Days 4-6: Do 10 sit-ups, 10 push-ups, and 10 jumping jacks three times. Days 7-9: Do 30 minutes of outdoor activities (bike, play a sport, run laps, hike, garden, etc.) Days 10-12: Complete 15 minutes of cardio (jump rope, hula hoop, jog, jumping jacks, mountain climbers, etc.) and 15 minutes of yoga, Pilates, or stretching. Days 13-15: Do 10 forward lunges for each leg, 10 squats, and 10 seconds of plank (holding a push-up position on your forearms). Days 16-18: Do 15 sit-ups, 15 push-ups, and 15 jumping jacks three times. Days 19-21: Do 45 minutes of outdoor activities (bike, play a sport, run laps, hike, garden, etc.) Days 22-24: Do 20 forward lunges for each leg, 20 squats, and 20 seconds of plank (holding a push-up position on your forearms). Days 25-27: Do 20 sit-ups, 20 push-ups, and 20 jumping jacks three times. Days 28-30: Do 60 minutes of outdoor activities (bike, play a sport, run laps, hike, garden, etc.) As always if you have a youth development topic that you would like to see addressed in this column please contact Becky Bennett at 973-4138 or via email bvbennett@u.edu Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It's obvious that he is the aggressor as he snarls and spits out words that are intended to defeat me before the match even begins. As he goes on and on, I don't hear anything, except for the sound of flashing bulbs from cameras, the referee's instructions and the roar of the crowd. Although I hear these sounds, their volume is low. Although I see the cameras flashing and the people in the crowd, my sight is dimmed. I tap gloves with my opponent and begin to retreat to the corner to await the bell. Pow! Before I get to my corner, a jarring blow floors me to the back of my head. Where did that come from? Someone reaches down His hand and helps me up. He has helped me up, time and time again when I have been knocked to the floor. Many others have crumbled under the will of the malevolent force that tries to attack my body and my soul, but God reaches down and lifts me up and whispers to me, "Fight on, son." Many times, God sends other people's hands to help when I am lying on the floor in a crumpled mess. Whether others are helping or not, though, God is always there, telling me once again, "Fight on, son." One thing I never have to fight for is forgiveness for my sins. God's Son, Jesus, fought that battle approximately 2,000 years ago when He died for my sins and was resurrected to free me from my sins. Because He did that, I can fight on. 2Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, December 27, 2013 Jacob BembryColumnist Conservative Corner Conservative Corner By Steve Phillips H4: Head, Heart, Hands, & Health: Holiday StressHappy New YearOur hearts are strengthened by hope. At this time of year, all across the world, people follow traditions that have been practiced for generations. Travel and Leisure lists the following interesting New Year traditions at: http://www.travelandleisure.com/ar ticles/worldsstrangest-new-yeartraditions/14. South Africa In downtown Joburg, locals throw old appliances out the window. Melanie Lieberman Colombia Hoping for a travelfilled year, residents tote empty suitcases around the block. Melanie Lieberman Japan The faithful wear a costume of the next year's zodiac animal (in 2014: a horse) to the local temple, where bells chime a sacred 108 times. Melanie Lieberman Denmark Danes ring in the New Year by hurling old plates and glasses...against the doors of friends' and relatives' houses. They also stand on chairs and then jump off them together at midnight. Leaping into January is supposed to banish bad spirits and bring good luck. Spain At midnight on New Year's Eve, it's customary in Spain to quickly eat 12 grapes (or uvas)one at each stroke of the clock. Each grape supposedly signifies good luck for one month of the coming year. In Madrid, Barcelona, and other Spanish cities, revelers congregate in the main squares to gobble their grapes together and pass around bottles of cava. Finland It's a longtime Finnish tradition to predict the coming year by casting molten tin into a container of water, and then interpreting the shape the metal takes after hardening. A heart or ring shape means a wedding in the New Year; a ship forecasts travel; and a pig shape signifies plenty of food. Scotland During the New Year's Eve celebration of Hogmanay, "firstfooting" is practiced all over Scotland. The custom dictates that the first person to cross the threshold of a home in the New Year should carry a gift for luck (whiskey is the most common). The Scots also hold bonfire ceremonies, most not ably in the small fishing village of Stonehaven, where townsmen parade while swinging giant fireballs on poles overhead (supposedly symbols of the sun, to purify the coming year). Philippines Round shapes (representing coins) are thought to symbolize prosperity for the coming year in the Philippines; many Filipino families display heaps of round fruits on the dining table for New Year's Eve. Other families are more particular; they eat exactly 12 fruits at midnight (grapes, which are also eaten at midnight in Spain, are easiest). Still others wear New Year polka dots for luck. Central and South America In Brazil, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Venezuela, it's considered lucky to wear special underwear on New Year's Eve; in cities like S‹o Paulo and La Paz, market vendors start displaying brightly colored underpants a few days before the holiday. The most popular colors are red and yellow: red is supposed to bring love in the coming year, and yellow is supposed to bring money. It almost seems that by opening a new calendar, we are presented with 365 new, bright, shiny days of unlimited promise. May God give us the wisdom to keep the brightness of hope in each of those new days in 2014. HAPPY NEW YEAR!THE REPUBLICAN CLUB OF MADISON COUNTY Meets Monday, January 13, 2014, at noon at Shelby's Restaurant EVERYONE WELCOME Paid for and approved by the Madison County Republican Executive Committee MadisonRepublican@embarqmail.com Fight On Madison County Extension ServiceBecky V. BennettGuest Columnist Something To Think AboutBy Harvey Greene We always talk about priorities. What is really important to us in life? Recently I've seen a lot of b abble over a television show. Apparently, the A&E Network has suspended Phil Robertson, the patriarch of their hit show Duck Dynasty due to some comments he made during an interview. As I understand it, people are "outraged" and are writing letters, talking boycotts, and other such uproar. A few months ago, another "reality" show on A&E, Storage Wars was in the news when one of its stars sued the show because, as he alleges in his lawsuit, they were rigging some of the auctions. Really? You mean they thought we didn't know that already? As to the Duck Dynasty incident, rst and foremost this is NOT a freedom of speech issue. Phil Robertson had full freedom of speech, which he exercised. A&E had full freedom of speech which they exercised by denouncing him, just as all those who are "outraged" are exercising their freedom of speech by complaining about what happened. Freedom of speech does not say that there are not repercussions for what you say. If you work for a company, and start making statements that insult your boss, you should expect them to be upset. No one has said Phil Robertson did not have the right to say anything. This is not a freedom of speech issue. Secondly, before you get too upset at A&E, please take a moment and actually read what he said in the interview. This is not simply a Christian vs. non-Christian matter. One of the primary reasons, again from my understanding and reading, was the actual language he used. For those that did not read it, this was not a simple statement about gay rights. Mr. Phil discussed the difference between heterosexual and homosexual relations in rather, uhm, how shall we say, medical language. I will not delve further because I do not consider his language appropriate for printing in my column. And I'm a medical practitioner. Before you defend his position, and yell at A&E for their actions, ask yourself this How would you like Phil Robertson to come to your Sunday School class, or your pulpit, and explain to your congregation the explicit differences in sexual preference? And I mean EXPLICIT. Really? Maybe you should read what he said before you judge. And read the WHOLE interview, not just the quotes handed you by someone who wants you on their side. Did you know that Mark Balelo, the ashy guy with the man purse on Storage Wars committed suicide? Probably not; it's not controversial enough to make the news. Truly sad, yes, but not marketable. Speaking of marketable, for the record, A&E Network reviewed the interview BEFORE it was published, and were allowed the opportunity to forbid it. They did not. Hmmm I am certainly not making any accusations, but they certainly are getting a lot of publicity by suspending one of their stars for making statements which they allowed him to say. Kinda makes a body think, don't it? Is this what is making you outraged? Call it "reality" TV if you want, but do you really think so? Are the Real Housewives of really housewives? Is Honey Boo-Boo real life? And I suppose professional wrestling is not choreographed? Finally, I ask you to consider something which is probably more important than any of the above comments. Is reality television really more important than reality? You are "outraged" over a television show, but not over hundreds of thousands of people in poverty? How about the students in our own backyard that are not getting an education because the law prefers graduation over learning? Shall I go on? Where are our priorities? So before you hear the gossip, and become "outraged" at the "anti-Christian" antics of a national marketing corporation, let us consider if "reality" television really the correct priority for us to dedicate our outrage. Think About It. Is It Really A Dynasty? Harvey GreeneGuest Columnist

ence in the county’s favor, but Reeves replied that it did not. The tentative negotiated settlement reached between both sides, covering back pay, benets, attorneys’ fees and everything, came to a reduced amount of $100,747.46; of that, the county would pay $58,797.46, and the county’s insurance carrier would cover the rest: $41,950. However, the deal needed the county’s approval before it could go forward. The question Reeves put before the commission was: settle for this amount or ght? It would be cheaper by far to pay, but the commission did not have to be driven by economics. They could choose to ght the claim, have another action led and spend another several thousand in court costs and attorney’s fees defending their side...plus, if they lost, attorneys’ fees for the other side. The county has paid several thousand on this case already. Commissioner Clyde Alexander made the motion to accept the settlement deal and make it all go away. Commissioner Wayne Vickers seconded. The board agreed, by a vote of 4-0. Commissioner Justin Hamrick was not present at the meeting. some who didn’t even bother to return his calls. Despite the government shutdown at the time, though, Rep. Yoho (R-Jacksonville) called and told Hardee that he would work to get Maxwell back on American soil and that he would not take “no” for an answer. Yoho was able to contact a four-star general, who had earlier said that the young man would not be able to leave the front lines The grandson was finally able to make it back to the States. Although it was too late for the funeral, the funeral home had held the body so the young man could see it. The soldier also did not have to return to Afghanistan. done in a certain order and at a set time during the process, according to the rules, regulations and guidelines. The signs couldn’t wait any longer. As for adding ‘of Madison’ he said he would have to contact the sign company and see if it was still possible at this point. However, any and all documents going out of the hospital had “of Madison,” because is was required as part of the address. “Are we too late?” Bibb asked. “Are we here in vain?” Phillips seemed to think it was, indeed, too late in the process, but Jackie Johnson repeated her request that the board at least ask the sign company about the change. It wasn’t just a matter of an address or name required by a post ofce; Madison, they seemed to feel, was a state of mind, a part of their identity, who they were, and it was something they wanted to see reected in their hospital’s name. When Dale Sowell questioned why the board had taken the decision on themselves to begin with, board chair Annette Johnson described the survey process of hospital personnel and the fact that what came up again and again was that everyone felt that faith, prayer, and God were a big part of what the new hospital was all about. That was the “Faith” part of the name. The new hospital would serve not only Madison, but also Hamilton, Taylor, and Jefferson Counties. “We wanted them all to feel welcome,” said Annette Johnson, adding that “Faith Community” was meant to convey that inclusiveness. “I love this hospital,” she continued. “I’m very passionate about this hospital. That’s why I’m on this board.” Others pointed out that a new name would give the brand new hospital a fresh start, without all the negatives that were associated with the old name “Madison County Memorial Hospital.” MCMH had had its problems in the past; the board felt that the brand new state-of-the-art facility that was to replace it deserved a new name. Terry Falls told the board she believed it had made an error in judgment in not involving the community as well as the hospital employees; if people had issues with the MCMH name, there were issues with the name “Faith” as well – as in, if you were going to go there, you’d better have faith. “There’s this sense of hubris, of the hospital board taking this (decision) on themselves without consulting the community...yet you ask us to support you.” Phillips replied that when the board rst considered changing the name, he had been against the idea, but as the discussions had unfolded, he had come to see the value in the name change, and thought it would be a good thing. He also denied that the board had done anything in secret because all of the boards meetings were open to the public and had been posted at the courthouse according to the requirements of the Sunshine Law. “I’ve been doing this for years,” board member Ben Harris added, “and very few members of the public have ever shown up.” “Most people don’t go to the courthouse every day,” Falls pointed out, while conceding that the board had indeed followed the letter of the Sunshine Law. “But the informal network is the most important current around here.” Phillips added that Madison County was “a statement of geography, not ownership,” because Madison County did not in fact own the hospital; the Hospital District owned the hospital. Madison County did not fund the hospital, but it did help out with part of the hospital’s indigent care cost. Hospital CEO David Abercrombie assured everyone that the indigent care was vetted, and that it was only for urgent cases or emergencies; these were people they were required by law to render care to, and the indigent care was “like an insurance policy.” “Everything you’ve said is accurate,” said Falls. “But it’s presumptuous. We believe we contribute signicantly to this hospital. It behooves you to put yourselves in the shoes of those you’ll be serving.” “We’ve been approached by people who both favored and opposed the named change. All we can do is what we honesty believe is best for the hospital,” said Annette Johnson, adding emphatically, “the name change was never meant to be a slap in the face. It was never meant to upset or offend anyone...but change is always going to upset somebody.” “I’m proud of Madison County Memorial Hospital,” said Sowell. “I don’t need a name change for that.” Jackie Johnson added that it was the name “Madison” itself that people felt pride in. Annette Johnson explained that in the past, the name “Madison” had not been associated with quality health care; in fact, for a long time state rankings had relegated it to the bottom – number 67 out of 67 counties in the area of healthcare. Now with the new building going up and other improvements in the number of services offered, the county had moved up to number 54. The name change was part of the new image that the hospital wanted to project. “When you come to this hospital, you will get the care you need,” she said. “I’m just overjoyed at what this will bring to Madison.” Phillips added that the board could call the sign company and see if it were possible at this point to get “of Madison County” added to the signs, but that it might be too late. These were not hand-painted wooden signs, but $60,000 worth of professionally produced, commercial signs with raised lettering and preselected font/spacing. It would depend on what point of production the signs were in. “Thank you for being here,” board member Ben Harris told the group as everyone prepared to leave. “We’ve been trying for four and a half years to get people to come.”From Page One Madison Enterprise-Recorder 3 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, December 27, 2013 World NewsBy Rose KleinTeen Couple Arrested After Teaching Child To Smoke Marijuana In New York, two teen parents from Mayville were arrested, along with the wife’s father, for teaching their almost two-year-old child to smoke marijuana. The child’s grandfather, Don Baker, along with the 17year-old mother, Jessica Kelsey and 18-year-old father, George Kelsey, were arrested and charged with second-degree reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child. The three adults were alleged to “help, observe and encourage” the 23month-old toddler to smoke a lighted bowl of marijuana. Following arrests, the toddler and another sibling were placed with Child Protective Services. $37 Million Lotto Jackpot Goes To Charity In Alberta, Canada, Tom Crist of Calgary won a lottery jackpot of more than $37 million and said he plans to donate all of it to charity. Crist won the jackpot from LOTTO Max, a subscription-based lottery game, and said donations from his winnings will be spread out over the course of several years. The rst charity to receive a donation will be the Tom Baker Cancer Center, who treated his wife for lung cancer prior to her death last year. Crist said his four children would help him decide which other charities will receive money. “It’s just going to unfold next year, so we’ll decide as a family what we’re going to do and how we’re going to do it,” Crist said. “The nice part is you can keep donating for years and years. It’ll be in my family trust and we’ll just carry on.” Man Arrested For Intent To Sell Tiger In Mungano, Italy, a farmer was arrested when it was discovered by authorities that he was keeping a tiger inside his house. Massimo Di Guida told investigators he found the tiger and decided to keep it with hopes of selling the cat.

To the ENTIRE CAST of Journey through Bethlehem…THANKYOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!! No matter the part: guides, high priest, shopkeepers, soldiers, shepherds, angel chorus, kitchen staff, bakers of refreshments, seamstresses, market place folks, including “Baby Jesus,” and others: The production was phenomenal!!A Special Thank You …The First Baptist History Committee would like to thank everyone in the community who participated in helping with the “Treasures of Madison County” event. We have collected $1,539.71 to date toward the upkeep of the 1898 Sanctuary, an historical landmark in Madison. The month of December is when Southern Baptist churches remember our international missionaries with the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering emphasis. The theme is “Totally His: Heart, Hands, Voice.” Each week during the month, we have been able to see a video clip of a missionary on the field telling how the Lottie Moon Christmas offering is beneficial to them. Use the prayer guide provided or Open Windows to pray for our missionaries. Our goal is $3500. We have collected nearly $2,100. This week our time of praise included “One Small Child.” The Christmas carols were “Joy to the World! The Lord is Come” and “Angels We Have Heard on High.” Christmas is about the Christ child and children. And how they did bring Christmas alive to us during the worship services this week!The annual Children’s Christmas Pageant under the direction of Martha Beggs and Martha Register was another success. Children participating were Josie Driggers, Jackson Kendrick, Katie Krell, Emma Grace Newman, Gracelynn Newsome, Lillian Washington, Gavin Bass, Marshall Pike, Riley Beggs, Parker Copeland, and Joshua Hill. The wardrobes were by Thelma DeHart. Sunday night the Children & Preschool choirs presented their Christmas song they had been learning. This writer’s favorite was “I Have a Blanket I’ll Share,” a perfect song for preschoolers. It set me to thinking. What do I have I could share this Christmas or anytime with someone in need? The offertory was a special treat as Zachary Townsend, one of our older children, with his guitar accompanied Lynne Sapp on the piano as they played “Silent Night.” Great job, Zach. The worship choir sang a selection, “Joseph Good, Joseph True,” from the Christmas Cantata. Kara Washington blessed our hearts with her solo. Bro. Gabe’s sermon, entitled, “The Birth of the Savior” was based on Luke 2:1-7. “And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city. Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger because there was no room for them in the inn.” It came to pass. Almost like it was always inevitable anyway God was working, willing, and moving even through the action of free and powerful men. The Baby was born in Bethlehem through the most unpredictable circumstances. No matter the actual details of Jesus’ birth, it is noteworthy that verse seven is also a prophecy fulfilled. And so, because of Caesar Augustus’ administrative and perhaps military necessity, the prophecies were fulfilled. A Baby was born that would change the world. He would go on to live a perfect life. He would go on to teach with authority He would go on to heal many He would even go on to make the audacious claim that He could forgive sins. This Baby really does change everything, not just our outer appearance and shell. He can change your lives and mine for eternity Accept the presence of this Baby in your life as the best Christmas present ever! Dec. 29 ~ Join us this week for Sunday school at 9:45 a.m. where we have classes for nursery through senior adults.

Submitted by Matt ReplogleThe Broncos boys’ basketball team had a very strong December, ending 6-1. They have played some very tough and closely contested games in which they came together as a team for the victory. December started off at home against Suwannee Middle School. The final score was 56-34. Travis Jay led the team with 17 points, Teryon Henderson added 12 points, Vincenta Mitchell made eight, Ken Hawkins six points, James Miller made five, Darryln Brooks three points, Mike Gibson and Darius Johnson added two points each and wrapping up the scoring was Devin Brinson with one point. Next, the Broncos traveled to Wakulla Middle School. The game was close until the end, when the Broncos pulled ahead, 59-44. Jay led the team with 20 points, Mitchell added 12, Brooks had 11, Henderson made eight points, Hawkins donated four, Miller three points and Gibson made one. The undefeated Broncos then hosted Hamilton, also undefeated for the season. The Broncos came out on top of the heated contest, 52-46. Jay led the way with 20 points with Mitchell adding 16, Miller made eight with Brooks and Hawkins chipping in with two points each. Next up, the Broncos traveled to Suwannee for a conference rematch. The game was back and forth for the entire game, but the Broncos dug deep to pull out a late win 39-35. Travis Jay led the way with 17, Mitchell donated nine, Miller scored five and Hawkins and Brooks each made four. The Broncos then traveled to Lake City to play Richardson.

Hawkins led all scorers with 20 points; Jay added 12 with Miller putting in two. After the tough loss, the Broncos came back the next night for a conference game against Taylor County at home.

MCCS Broncos Basketball Finishes Strong For DecemberAthlete With Madison Connections Receives ScholarshipSubmitted by Ted EnsmingerYoung Garrett Cave recently experienced a dream come true that many athletes aspire to. The senior, who plays baseball at South Sumter High School in Bushnell, signed a national Letter of Intent on Monday, Nov. 18, to play baseball for Florida International University in Miami. During this past spring, Garrett pitched for the South Sumter Raiders on their Varsity team. His stats for this spring included seven starts (record 4-0), 31 1/3 innings pitched, 38 strikeouts, 21 walks, and he only gave up five hits and three runs. His opponent’s batting average was an impressive .115. Garrett also received interest from other schools such as the University of North Florida, the University of Florida, Florida Gulf Coast, Florida Atlantic University, and the University of South Carolina. He decided that FIU was the right fit for him. Garrett is the son of Sim and Gail Cave of Bushnell. He is the great-grandson of the late S.H. “Simmie” and Monteen Moore of Madison, and the grandson of the late Bill Cave, and his grandmother Teenie Cave, who still lives in Madison.

As we reflect back on the end of our 15th year, it is so humbling to realize just how blessed we are. These blessings have come in the form of so many wonderful new friends and customers with relationships that we will treasure forever. We are so grateful for those of you who have made us your Automotive Dealer of choice. It has been a sincere pleasure serving you and your family while earning your trust & loyalty. We are encouraged about the upturn in the economy and certain that if we all unite together our nations future will be bright. We completed our first full year at the Chevrolet Dealership in Quitman. We are humbled by your overwhelming response to our offering the Chevy brand. The growth has been phenomenal, and we are excited about our expansion plans for 2014. It is an honor to now be able to offer you the sale and service of a full line of Chevrolet vehicles in Quitman; as well as Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, & Ram vehicles in both Valdosta & Quitman. We have only been able to accomplish so much because of the Lords favor and yours; we thank you both for that. We are extremely grateful to live in a community that values friendship, and a country, that thanks to so many brave young men and women, remains the enduring symbol of freedom throughout the world. Please take the time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas. In todays society, with so many distractions and secular groups trying to remove any resemblance of Christ from Christmas, I pray that you will focus on what is really important. This special season is about family, love, kindness, generosity, and the true peace on earth that began in a manger some 2000 years ago. With the birth of that child, who has been called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and the Prince of Peace we have been given hope and a destiny that will last for eternity. Scripture tells us that children are a true gift from the Lord. We thank our Heavenly Father for ours and for yours during this special season. I pray His blessings on you & your family this Christmas and throughout the New Year. Your friend in the car business, Cass
