America Saves Week begins Sunday, Feb. 23 March 1. This national campaign is a broad coalition of nonprot, corporate and government agencies that help individuals and families save and build wealth. The Extension Service is a collaborator in this campaign and we are promoting the message, "Set a goal, Make a plan, Save automatically." Through information and education, Americans are being encouraged to pay down debt, build an emergency fund and save for a home, education and retirement. Sounds like a tall order, but it is consistent amounts of money over time that builds up savings. According to America Saves, research shows that there are "savers" and "spenders" in all income levels. Understand ably, modest incomes can't save as much as a family at a higher income level; however, all have the ability to build wealth over time. In Florida, we are promoting the idea to start small and think big. Over time small amounts of money will grow. One of the rst steps you can take is to build an emergency fund. While we know savings accounts don't pay much interest, the purpose of this type of savings is to have money for unexpected expenses. It keeps you from putting purchases on your credit card which cost more in the long run because of interest charges. It is estimated that Americans take out $2 billion a year in high interest rates to cover unexpected bills. A goal of $500 to $1,000 in an emergency fund will allow you to meet unexpected challenges such as a car repair, a visit to the doctor or a home repair. Financial experts recommend consumers have a separate account for emergency savings in a bank or credit union savings account. By keeping emergency money separate from your checking account, you will reduce the temptation to use it for every day purchases. A regular savings account offers easy access to your money for any unexpected expense you might encounter. Some banks have a minimum deposit to open an account and a minimum balance to avoid fees, so you may need to put money in a jar for a few months until you have enough to open an account. If you want to build an emergency fund, but just don't have the money, take a good look at your spending habits. That soda you buy every day or the stops for a quick meal because you are too tired to cook may be draining your wallet. We all spend much more than we think, so try eliminating one habit and save the money. Another easy way to accumulate money is to empty the change out of your pockets each night; you'll be surprised how much money you'll have at the end of the month. Once your emergency account is funded, you can expand your savings to reach long term goals, like a down payment for a house or a child's college education. There are many alternatives available for savings and investing money; wise consumers research their options before making decisions. Make the pledge to be a saver by going to www.americasaves.org and enrolling, you will receive a newsletter throughout the year with ideas on growing your money. Our Extension colleagues at Rutgers University have created a ve-week Financial Challenge. If you are interested in participating in the online educational series, visit http://rutgers.ancc.net and register for the series which begins Sunday Feb. 23-Saturday, March 29. For more information on saving money and family nances, contact the Madison County Extension Service. The University of Florida Extension/IFAS Extension – Madison County is an Equal Employment Opportunity Institution. Sin rode into town. He wore a smile and began throwing 100-dollar bills around. He looked handsome in his Armani suit and Gucci boots. The women all loved him and the guys all wanted to be like him. He had them all blinded. He was a wolf in sheep's clothing and had gained entry into the flock, where he would try to take advantage of them all and he would prey on the weakest. His voice was smooth and his words as slick as oil. Sin had a way with the weak ones, especially those who had not done their homework and studied their textbook. Sure, they would be in church on Sundays (if they didn't have something else to do that day) but as soon as they stepped out of the door, they didn't consider the words of the pastor anymore. None of them bothered to check the Word for themselves. None of them took time to pray, so they became easy prey for the predator that showed up, knocking at their door to be let in. How many times have we unknowingly let the wolves in among the sheep? How many times do we give them the keys to our hearts? We need to always guard our hearts and be on the lookout for sin (see Proverbs 4:23), which will come disguised as bright and shiny, well-dressed and well-groomed, instead of revealing the true ugliness of pure evil. Be careful, pray and read God's Word, so you will be prepared when sin rides into town. Jacobs Ladder Viewpoints & Opinions2Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, February 21, 2014 Jacob BembryColumnist Conservative Corner Conservative Corner By Nelson A. PryorLow Cost B.A. ProgramNationally, tuition and fees at a government university cost in-state students about $9,000 a year, or $36,000 for a four-year degree. With tuition, student loan debt and default rates all spiraling higher, how about a goal of a $10,000 bachelor's degree? Our innovative Governor, Rick Scott, sizing up the need in this area, has come up with a program to meet that $10,000 challenge. He has challenged our government colleges to develop bachelor's degrees costing no more than $10,000, which would be less than a third of the average sticker price for tuition and fees at a four-year college. The New York Times of Oct. 19, 2013, featured Scott's innovative foundation program to get Florida's colleges to offer a four year "low-cost degrees in high-demand elds." Now the $10,000 Florida four year degrees are available, but not for all students, not for all majors and not on all the ag-ship campuses. The original goal was to have degrees use new teaching techniques and technologies to bring down costs; so far, many of the programs are unchanged. Two dozen former community colleges, that offer both associate and baccalaureate degrees, have taken up Gov. Scott's $10,000 challenge. But not all are under way. Broward College, which has 67,000 students, is offering the low-cost baccalaureate in its four bachelor's programs: middle school math education, middle school science education, information technology and global trade and logistic. To be eligible, for the Governor's program, students must have a grade-point average of at least 3.0 and be Florida citizens, in college for the rst time, and committed to continuous enrollment. Broward designed its program to confront the dropout problem that plagues community colleges nationwide. Posters on campus exhort students to "Finish What You Start," and to that end, the savings in the affordable degree programs kick in with a free last semester. Randy Hanna, the chancellor of the Florida College System, said that whatever the numbers, the program is an important addition to the system's efforts to promote college access. Miami Dade College, the biggest in the system, is offering eight $10,000 bachelor's degree programs to students who graduate from a local high school, enroll full-time and have a grade point average of at least 3.0. Their new program has drawn 62 students. On Broward's Davie campus, news of Gov. Scott's groundbreaking low-cost B. A. degree program is just now getting around. As word gets out, interest in the innovative program's utility heightens. Horizons brighten. High school graduates, this year, make your mark! Affordable college may be here for you. And there may never be a better chance. This is a good opportunity to get that higher degree, without piling up that debt. Perhaps even getting that temporary, but interesting job, the source of inspiration for the rest of your life. Graduates! The more prepared you are, the "Luckier" you will be. So, get cracking!

We are already the lowest scored district in the sate of Florida. As a stay at home mom I think this is an absolute disgusting way to treat our children. The sad truth is children are not always treated with love and kindness at home, this is sent to school and the cycle of violence is repeated when the school decides to reinforce domestic violence. In this day and age there has to be a better way to handle situations. I do not know how other to stand up for the children that cannot protect themselves than to send you my thoughts and hopefully have support in using a positive path to raise our children.STINGERS EMAIL YOUR STINGERS TO: NEWS@GREENEPUBLISHING.COM Sin Rode Into TownMake It A Habit To Save Money Medicare coverage can be a critical component for living a healthy life in retirement, as well as for maintaining your financial independence during these years. Yet, as important as it is, Medicare does not cover the full range of health-care expenses you may experience in your golden years. To fill the holes that exist in Medicare, Medigap insurance can be purchased by individuals over 65 to supplement Medicare. A Medigap policy is designed to cover expenses such as copayments, coinsurance and even deductibles„ the so-called gaps in Medicare. Coinsurance is only covered after you have paid the deductible unless you select a Medigap policy that also covers the deductible. From A to N Medigap is private health insurance that must follow federal and state laws designed to protect you. In most states, you can only purchase standardized coverage packages, or Plans, each of which is identified by the letters A through N. These standardized packages must offer the same basic benefits regardless of which insurance company is offering it. Cost is usually the only difference between Medigap policies with the same letter. All insurance companies are required to offer the Plan A standardized package. Each Medigap plan option (A-N) will differ on the benefits offered and the percentage of coverage for these Medicare gaps. To get a better understanding of what each of these plans offer, go to www.medicare.gov and click on the Supplements & Other InsuranceŽ tab at the top of the page. Then click on How to Compare Medigap Policies.Ž An Early Start at 65 You must have Medicare Parts A and B to buy a Medigap policy, and the best time to buy Medigap insurance is within the first six months you are both 65 or older and enrolled in Medicare Part B. By doing this you will not need to undergo a medical underwriting. For those with existing health conditions, this enables them to buy a policy at the same price that is charged for people in good health. A separate Medigap policy must be purchased for each spouse. If you are nearing retirement, or have already discovered that these Medicare gaps can be expensive, it may be time to determine if a Medigap policy is right for you.

The full plot to the film is being kept under wraps for right now. “I’m looking forward to getting back into the Detective Matthews character again, he was such a fun, tough guy character to play in the short film version. It will also be nice to come back to the Orlando area to film a project there and work with a lot of familiar faces as well” says Hans, who also serves as a producer on the film. “I had the pleasure of working with Hans on the set in 2010 in New York City for the filming of the short film “Hidden Agenda.” I was more then impressed with Hans and his professionalism on set. He brought a much needed as expected leadership to the cast as the lead, that as a result brought the whole cast performance to a high level” says Aaron. Hans has starred in independent films such as “The Perfect House,” the first independent film to premiere on Facebook worldwide back in October 2011, and the upcoming Indie paranormal film “The Aztec Box.” “Hidden Agenda” is based on the feature length script which some selected scenes were made into a short film in 2010 in New York City. Because of its positive reaction from audiences that viewed the short, the full length feature version got its greenlight to get made! Also on board is the Director of Photography, Chase York, who served as the DP on the short version, and Samantha Santos, who served as the 1stA.D. as well. The film also stars Adam Barnett (“Silent House”) Cameron Bigelow (“Intrusive Behavior”), Vania Bezerra, Laura D’ Orsi, Melissa Goggans Williams, and Greg Hernke.For More Information please contact: Aaron Warren or Hans Hernke at ContactPain@Yahoo.com or ActorHans223@aol.comFrom Page One Madison Enterprise-Recorder 3 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, February 21, 2014 World NewsBy Rose KleinNaked Man Attempts To Hijack Bus In Irvington, N.J., a naked man on the streets was seen urinating and banging on passing cars before attempting to board a transit bus full of passengers.

Mom Pays $567 To Remove Indecent T-Shirt Display In Orem, Utah, a woman who was shopping with her teenage son at the University Mall in Orem shelled out $567 to buy Tshirts in a display she considered to be indecent. Judy Cox said she saw the “Visual” line shirts in a PacSun store, featuring screen-printed pictures of scantily clad models. “I had a conversation with the store manager,” Cox said. “She said she did refuse to put the accompanying banner up with the display because it was much worse, but that she couldn’t take down the T-shirts without talking to her corporate ofce.” Cox purchased all the shirts in the line as well as the accompanying display posters. She said she wants to destroy the shirts but instead will “let their corporate ofce gure out what to do with them when I return them on day 59 of a 60-day return policy.” Mall manager, Rob Kallas, said the display had received other complaints and the city attorney was informed and will determine if the display violates city codes. PacSun corporate ofcials had no comment. Woman Runs off Man For Shoveling Snow From Her Driveway In Lowell, Mass., a 79-year-old woman reportedly used a gun to persuade a man to leave her home who had shoveled her driveway without asking her rst and then demanded cash. After clearing the homeowner’s driveway, the man went to the woman’s door and asked for cash. The woman told the man to go away and shut the door, but the man continued knocking and the woman came back, but this time with a gun. The shoveler talked to a neighbor as he was leaving and told them, “The woman pulled a .38 or a revolver and told him to get the (heck) out” the neighbor said. Capt. Thomas Meehan said, “she feared he was going to break in so she opened the door again with the rearm at her side.

By Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc.The Madison Country Club is under going a makeover, with some much needed improvements that will be beneficial as well as beautiful. The remodeling is the result of new owner, Frank “Bump” Faircloth, who purchased the club in December of this past year. Faircloth said when he purchased the club he agreed to make improvements and to keep the course playable and in good condition for at least three years. The new look includes a totally remodeled clubhouse, new irrigation on the golf course and the construction of a large deck that will enable members and guests to enjoy a relaxing view of the lake. The club’s structure isn’t the only thing that will be renovated. Faircloth is encouraging a family atmosphere for the club and will begin offering events for women and children. One of the events for the ladies already on the roster is the reinstatement of ladies’ golf tournaments, such as the upcoming ladies Pot Williams tournament, scheduled Thursday, May 1. The men’s tournament is also scheduled and will begin on Saturday, May 3 and continue through Sunday, May 4. Faircloth is also offering memberships, with initiation fees being waived until June 30 of this year and adds, “Memberships will be limited, so please sign up.” A very special event that is in the works and will be Faircloth’s grand opening event is the Champion’s Dinner, held Friday, Feb. 28. This event will honor all past golf champions, with some of the 27 champions present to tell the stories behind their victories. Several of the local champions attending will be Colin Howerton, Rockey Fraleigh, Rock Fraleigh, Chad Smith, Billy Sullivan, Jarrod Sullivan, Dale Brown and David Jackson. Some notable out-of-town champions include Frank Eldridge, the 1962 champion and Walt Lamb, Sr., the 1964 champion. Social hour will begin at 6 p.m. with dinner being served at 6:30 p.m. Dinner will include some nostalgia with Danny Terrell preparing his famous prime rib, traditionally cooked for the club years ago and Shelby’s catering will fill in with the accompaniments. The cost for non-members is $25 per person. For reservations to the event, call (850) 9736701. When “Bump” (ask him how he earned his nickname), was asked why he purchased the club, he said he played at the country club in 1984 at a Pot Williams tournament and was attracted to it by the friendliness of the people and for the historical value of the club itself. Faircloth said it remained one of his favorite courses to play and came back to Madison every year for 30 years to play the tournament. When there, Faircloth would envision improvements (he is now making) so when the opportunity was presented, Faircloth and the club seemed to be a good fit. Faircloth’s son, Brian, will be also active in the club, working with “Bump” in management positions as well as promotions, making the club a real family affair. Faircloth owns several businesses in Perry and says he loves being able to create jobs for people and to give them a quality living and owning the Madison Country Club will now allow him to do that in Madison. Faircloth wants to invite anyone interested to visit the Madison Golf and Country Club and to check out the club’s improvements. He was also very adamant about relaying a big “thank you” to everyone who helped with the transition of the club’s ownership, especially the staff and members, who he said made the experience for him very positive.Around Madison CountyMadison Enterprise-Recorder 5 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, February 21, 2014 Pet Of The Week Meet Sing!

By happy coincidence, it fell on a Friday night that was also Valentine's Day, an evening when lots of people go out for a fun evening, because Kiwanians wanted a lot of people to come. The event was held both as a membership drive and a way to let the general public see the kind of community involvement that is the club's hallmark. In the Madison County Senior Center's spacious dining room, there was plenty of room for dancing to all kinds of music, with live entertainment from karaoke to some great comedy by Timothy McCray of Madison. About 20 door prizes were given away throughout the evening, and the club would like to thank the provider who made all those prizes available. In addition, there is an ongoing rafe for a 50" LED at-screen TV, with the drawing to be held at Down Home Days, April 19th. Folks at the Valentine Ball had a chance to buy a few $5 rafe tickets if they wished, and people can continue to buy rafe tickets from any Kiwanis member from now until the drawing. The proceeds from that will go toward the Kiwanis Club of Madison's Scholarship Fund. Greene Publishing, Inc.

Dr. Victor DeNoble, who was employed in 1980 by the Philip Morris Research Center as a scientist in their top-secret research lab, gave a presentation at the Madison County Central School, Feb. 5, sharing with sixth through eighth grade students, his research on the effects of tobacco use. DeNoble’s work eventually brought to light the effects of nicotine in humans by monitoring its use on animals. He discovered it was not only highly addictive, but also changes the way our brain works and directly relates to heart attacks in smokers. Dr. DeNoble’s mantra throughout his presentation on how nicotine goes, “from the blood to the heart to the brain” surely stuck into the minds of students as DeNoble continually emphasized the danger this drug caused in our bodies. Dr. DeNoble gave an attention-grabbing presentation on how he successfully identied a nicotine substitute that didn’t elevate the heart rate in animals, and how the tobacco company refused to allow him to publish his ndings and eventually red him, seizing his laboratory and data. DeNoble was bound by a secrecy document he had signed upon his employment with Philip Morris and was unable to lawfully go forward with his research ndings, until 1994, when he became the rst whistle blower against tobacco companies, exposing the truth of tobacco’s harmful effects on the human body and directly leading to today’s changes in public policy on tobacco use. Tobacco Free Florida, Tobacco Free Madison partnership and the Florida Department of Health in Madison sponsored Dr. DeNoble’s presentation in order to educate Madison County youth on the dangers of nicotine addiction, as well as to promote the local Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) in their mission of mobilizing, educating and equipping Florida youth to revolt against and deglamorize “big tobacco.” If you are interested in helping protect Madison County youth from the dangers of tobacco use, becoming a Tobacco Free Madison partnership member is a great way to start. Betsy Rykard, at the Madison County Health Department says, “Our youth need you!” To contact Rykard about becoming a partnership member, call (850) 9735000, ext. 118. If you are a tobacco user and are interested in quitting, Tobacco Free Florida offers three free and easy ways to quit: You can call the Florida Quitline at 1-877-U-CANNOW (1-877-822-6669) to speak with a Quit Coach who will help create a personalized quit plan for you; visit www.quitnow.net/orida and enroll in the Web Coach program that will help create you a web-based quit plan or sign up and attend Quit Smoking Now group classes at the Area Health Education Center (AHEC) by visiting the Florida Department of Health in Madison or by calling (850) 973-5000, ext. 118.SchoolMadison Enterprise-Recorder 9 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, February 21, 2014MCCS Teachers Of The WeekBy Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.Melissa Haynes is a fifth grade science teacher at Madison County Central School and says the most satisfying thing about her job as a teacher is being with the kids. The part of teaching she looks forward to the most is doing science labs with her students. Ms. Haynes became a teacher because she wanted to teach like her mother, and in teaching the students in her own classroom, her vision is to see all of them succeed. When asked who she looks up to as a teacher, she said “Mrs. Cobb (another teacher at the Central School) because she is always upbeat and works hard with her students.” Ms. Haynes interests outside of the classroom include reading, playing the piano and camping. The last book she read was Escape From The Deep describing the last voyage and inhabitants of a WWII submarine, the USS Tang. Daphne Brooks is a math teacher and ESE Support Facilitator for grades six through eighth at the Madison County Central School. She comes from a family of teachers and she says, “They instilled in me the importance of an education and how as a teacher we can inspire others to do great things in life.” She does say it’s ironic that she became a math teacher because when she was in school, her favorite subjects were reading and literature. Ms. Brooks is in her 11thyear of teaching and all of those years have been at MCCS. Ms. Brooks describes herself as an avid reader and also enjoys watching movies. Her self-described strengths are “My faith in God, my willingness to help others and having an open mind.” She says the people she looks up to most are her parents because they made her into the person she is today.Greene Publishing, Inc.

Church/Turn Back Time10Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, February 21, 2014Our time of praise included “Open the Eyes of My Heart” and “Faith is the Victory.” For the offertory we sang “The Church’s One Foundation” and the orchestra played “Amazing Grace, My Chains Are Gone.” The worship choir’s special was “Jerusalem.” We really appreciate the time and effort these folks put in to leading us in worship. Bro Gabe continued his preaching from the Sermon on the Mount using Matthew 6:25-34 as his text. Worry is something we all do. Worry here means consuming focus about things that take over our day. In the passage we see the relationship between God, nature and man. We are God’s supreme creation. We have an intimate Father who really cares about us and will tend to all our needs much more than He takes care of nature. We just need to exercise our faith in Him. Mission action is reaching out beyond the church walls and ministering to other folks in such a way that they too, want to be a part of our forever family. Jesus said it like this, “As you are going, for you will be going, make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

America Saves Week begins Sunday, Feb. 23 March 1. This national campaign is a broad coalition of nonprot, corporate and government agencies that help individuals and families save and build wealth. The Extension Service is a collaborator in this campaign and we are promoting the message, Set a goal, Make a plan, Save automatically." Through information and education, Americans are being encouraged to pay down debt, build an emergency fund and save for a home, education and retirement. Sounds like a tall order, but it is consistent amounts of money over time that builds up savings. According to America Saves, research shows that there are savers and spenders in all income levels. Understand ably, modest incomes cant save as much as a family at a higher income level; however, all have the ability to build wealth over time. In Florida, we are promoting the idea to start small and think big. Over time small amounts of money will grow. One of the rst steps you can take is to build an emergency fund. While we know savings accounts dont pay much interest, the purpose of this type of savings is to have money for unexpected expenses. It keeps you from putting purchases on your credit card which cost more in the long run because of interest charges. It is estimated that Americans take out $2 billion a year in high interest rates to cover unexpected bills. A goal of $500 to $1,000 in an emergency fund will allow you to meet unexpected challenges such as a car repair, a visit to the doctor or a home repair. Financial experts recommend consumers have a separate account for emergency savings in a bank or credit union savings account. By keeping emergency money separate from your checking account, you will reduce the temptation to use it for every day purchases. A regular savings account offers easy access to your money for any unexpected expense you might encounter. Some banks have a minimum deposit to open an account and a minimum balance to avoid fees, so you may need to put money in a jar for a few months until you have enough to open an account. If you want to build an emergency fund, but just dont have the money, take a good look at your spending habits. That soda you buy every day or the stops for a quick meal because you are too tired to cook may be draining your wallet. We all spend much more than we think, so try eliminating one habit and save the money. Another easy way to accumulate money is to empty the change out of your pockets each night; youll be surprised how much money youll have at the end of the month. Once your emergency account is funded, you can expand your savings to reach long term goals, like a down payment for a house or a childs college education. There are many alternatives available for savings and investing money; wise consumers research their options before making decisions. Make the pledge to be a saver by going to www.americasaves.org and enrolling, you will receive a newsletter throughout the year with ideas on growing your money. Our Extension colleagues at Rutgers University have created a ve-week Financial Challenge. If you are interested in participating in the online educational series, visit http://rutgers.ancc.net and register for the series which begins Sunday Feb. 23-Saturday, March 29. For more information on saving money and family nances, contact the Madison County Extension Service. The University of Florida Extension/IFAS Extension Madison County is an Equal Employment Opportunity Institution. Sin rode into town. He wore a smile and began throwing 100-dollar bills around. He looked handsome in his Armani suit and Gucci boots. The women all loved him and the guys all wanted to be like him. He had them all blinded. He was a wolf in sheeps clothing and had gained entry into the flock, where he would try to take advantage of them all and he would prey on the weakest. His voice was smooth and his words as slick as oil. Sin had a way with the weak ones, especially those who had not done their homework and studied their textbook. Sure, they would be in church on Sundays (if they didnt have something else to do that day) but as soon as they stepped out of the door, they didnt consider the words of the pastor anymore. None of them bothered to check the Word for themselves. None of them took time to pray, so they became easy prey for the predator that showed up, knocking at their door to be let in. How many times have we unknowingly let the wolves in among the sheep? How many times do we give them the keys to our hearts? We need to always guard our hearts and be on the lookout for sin (see Proverbs 4:23), which will come disguised as bright and shiny, well-dressed and well-groomed, instead of revealing the true ugliness of pure evil. Be careful, pray and read Gods Word, so you will be prepared when sin rides into town. Jacobs LadderViewpoints & Opinions2Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, February 21, 2014 Jacob BembryColumnist Conservative Corner Conservative CornerBy Nelson A. PryorL o w C o s t B A P r o g r a m Nationally, tuition and fees at a government university cost in-state students about $9,000 a year, or $36,000 for a four-year degree. With tuition, student loan debt and default rates all spiraling higher, how about a goal of a $10,000 bachelors degree? Our innovative Governor, Rick Scott, sizing up the need in this area, has come up with a program to meet that $10,000 challenge. He has challenged our government colleges to develop bachelors degrees costing no more than $10,000, which would be less than a third of the average sticker price for tuition and fees at a four-year college. The New York Times, of Oct. 19, 2013, featured Scotts innovative foundation program to get Floridas colleges to offer a four year low-cost degrees in high-demand elds. Now the $10,000 Florida four year degrees are available, but not for all students, not for all majors and not on all the ag-ship campuses. The original goal was to have degrees use new teaching techniques and technologies to bring down costs; so far, many of the programs are unchanged. Two dozen former community colleges, that offer both associate and baccalaureate degrees, have taken up Gov. Scotts $10,000 challenge. But not all are under way. Broward College, which has 67,000 students, is offering the low-cost baccalaureate in its four bachelors programs: middle school math education, middle school science education, information technology and global trade and logistic. To be eligible, for the Governors program, students must have a grade-point average of at least 3.0 and be Florida citizens, in college for the rst time, and committed to continuous enrollment. Broward designed its program to confront the dropout problem that plagues community colleges nationwide. Posters on campus exhort students to Finish What You Start, and to that end, the savings in the affordable degree programs kick in with a free last semester. Randy Hanna, the chancellor of the Florida College System, said that whatever the numbers, the program is an important addition to the systems efforts to promote college access. Miami Dade College, the biggest in the system, is offering eight $10,000 bachelors degree programs to students who graduate from a local high school, enroll full-time and have a grade point average of at least 3.0. Their new program has drawn 62 students. On Browards Davie campus, news of Gov. Scotts groundbreaking low-cost B. A. degree program is just now getting around. As word gets out, interest in the innovative programs utility heightens. Horizons brighten. High school graduates, this year, make your mark! Affordable college may be here for you. And there may never be a better chance. This is a good opportunity to get that higher degree, without piling up that debt. Perhaps even getting that temporary, but interesting job, the source of inspiration for the rest of your life. Graduates! The more prepared you are, the Luckier you will be. So, get cracking! FOR YOUR INFORMATION Florida Forever owns 33 percent of Florida land and wants more, which means higher taxes for owners of private property and a threat to our property rights.

We are already the lowest scored district in the sate of Florida. As a stay at home mom I think this is an absolute disgusting way to treat our children. The sad truth is children are not always treated with love and kindness at home, this is sent to school and the cycle of violence is repeated when the school decides to reinforce domestic violence. In this day and age there has to be a better way to handle situations. I do not know how other to stand up for the children that cannot protect themselves than to send you my thoughts and hopefully have support in using a positive path to raise our children.STINGERS EMAIL YOUR STINGERS TO: NEWS@GREENEPUBLISHING.COM Sin Rode Into TownMake It A Habit To Save Money Medicare coverage can be a critical component for living a healthy life in retirement, as well as for maintaining your financial independence during these years. Yet, as important as it is, Medicare does not cover the full range of health-care expenses you may experience in your golden years. To fill the holes that exist in Medicare, Medigap insurance can be purchased by individuals over 65 to supplement Medicare. A Medigap policy is designed to cover expenses such as copayments, coinsurance and even deductibles the so-called gaps in Medicare. Coinsurance is only covered after you have paid the deductible unless you select a Medigap policy that also covers the deductible. From A to N Medigap is private health insurance that must follow federal and state laws designed to protect you. In most states, you can only purchase standardized coverage packages, or Plans, each of which is identified by the letters A through N. These standardized packages must offer the same basic benefits regardless of which insurance company is offering it. Cost is usually the only difference between Medigap policies with the same letter. All insurance companies are required to offer the Plan A standardized package. Each Medigap plan option (A-N) will differ on the benefits offered and the percentage of coverage for these Medicare gaps. To get a better understanding of what each of these plans offer, go to www.medicare.gov and click on the Supplements & Other Insurance tab at the top of the page. Then click on How to Compare Medigap Policies. An Early Start at 65 You must have Medicare Parts A and B to buy a Medigap policy, and the best time to buy Medigap insurance is within the first six months you are both 65 or older and enrolled in Medicare Part B. By doing this you will not need to undergo a medical underwriting. For those with existing health conditions, this enables them to buy a policy at the same price that is charged for people in good health. A separate Medigap policy must be purchased for each spouse. If you are nearing retirement, or have already discovered that these Medicare gaps can be expensive, it may be time to determine if a Medigap policy is right for you.

The full plot to the film is being kept under wraps for right now. Im looking forward to getting back into the Detective Matthews character again, he was such a fun, tough guy character to play in the short film version. It will also be nice to come back to the Orlando area to film a project there and work with a lot of familiar faces as well says Hans, who also serves as a producer on the film. I had the pleasure of working with Hans on the set in 2010 in New York City for the filming of the short film Hidden Agenda. I was more then impressed with Hans and his professionalism on set. He brought a much needed as expected leadership to the cast as the lead, that as a result brought the whole cast performance to a high level says Aaron. Hans has starred in independent films such as The Perfect House, the first independent film to premiere on Facebook worldwide back in October 2011, and the upcoming Indie paranormal film The Aztec Box. Hidden Agenda is based on the feature length script which some selected scenes were made into a short film in 2010 in New York City. Because of its positive reaction from audiences that viewed the short, the full length feature version got its greenlight to get made! Also on board is the Director of Photography, Chase York, who served as the DP on the short version, and Samantha Santos, who served as the 1stA.D. as well. The film also stars Adam Barnett (Silent House) Cameron Bigelow (Intrusive Behavior), Vania Bezerra, Laura D Orsi, Melissa Goggans Williams, and Greg Hernke.For More Information please contact: Aaron Warren or Hans Hernke at ContactPain@Yahoo.com or ActorHans223@aol.comFrom Page One Madison Enterprise-Recorder 3 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, February 21, 2014 World NewsBy Rose KleinN a k e d M a n A t t e m p t s T o H i j a c k B u s In Irvington, N.J., a naked man on the streets was seen urinating and banging on passing cars before attempting to board a transit bus full of passengers.

She said she wants to destroy the shirts but instead will let their corporate ofce gure out what to do with them when I return them on day 59 of a 60-day return policy.

By Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc.The Madison Country Club is under going a makeover, with some much needed improvements that will be beneficial as well as beautiful. The remodeling is the result of new owner, Frank Bump Faircloth, who purchased the club in December of this past year. Faircloth said when he purchased the club he agreed to make improvements and to keep the course playable and in good condition for at least three years. The new look includes a totally remodeled clubhouse, new irrigation on the golf course and the construction of a large deck that will enable members and guests to enjoy a relaxing view of the lake. The clubs structure isnt the only thing that will be renovated. Faircloth is encouraging a family atmosphere for the club and will begin offering events for women and children. One of the events for the ladies already on the roster is the reinstatement of ladies golf tournaments, such as the upcoming ladies Pot Williams tournament, scheduled Thursday, May 1. The mens tournament is also scheduled and will begin on Saturday, May 3 and continue through Sunday, May 4. Faircloth is also offering memberships, with initiation fees being waived until June 30 of this year and adds, Memberships will be limited, so please sign up. A very special event that is in the works and will be Faircloths grand opening event is the Champions Dinner, held Friday, Feb. 28. This event will honor all past golf champions, with some of the 27 champions present to tell the stories behind their victories. Several of the local champions attending will be Colin Howerton, Rockey Fraleigh, Rock Fraleigh, Chad Smith, Billy Sullivan, Jarrod Sullivan, Dale Brown and David Jackson. Some notable out-of-town champions include Frank Eldridge, the 1962 champion and Walt Lamb, Sr., the 1964 champion. Social hour will begin at 6 p.m. with dinner being served at 6:30 p.m. Dinner will include some nostalgia with Danny Terrell preparing his famous prime rib, traditionally cooked for the club years ago and Shelbys catering will fill in with the accompaniments. The cost for non-members is $25 per person. For reservations to the event, call (850) 9736701. When Bump (ask him how he earned his nickname), was asked why he purchased the club, he said he played at the country club in 1984 at a Pot Williams tournament and was attracted to it by the friendliness of the people and for the historical value of the club itself. Faircloth said it remained one of his favorite courses to play and came back to Madison every year for 30 years to play the tournament. When there, Faircloth would envision improvements (he is now making) so when the opportunity was presented, Faircloth and the club seemed to be a good fit. Faircloths son, Brian, will be also active in the club, working with Bump in management positions as well as promotions, making the club a real family affair. Faircloth owns several businesses in Perry and says he loves being able to create jobs for people and to give them a quality living and owning the Madison Country Club will now allow him to do that in Madison. Faircloth wants to invite anyone interested to visit the Madison Golf and Country Club and to check out the clubs improvements. He was also very adamant about relaying a big thank you to everyone who helped with the transition of the clubs ownership, especially the staff and members, who he said made the experience for him very positive.Around Madison CountyMadison Enterprise-Recorder 5 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, February 21, 2014 P e t O f T h e W e e k Meet Sing!

By happy coincidence, it fell on a Friday night that was also Valentines Day, an evening when lots of people go out for a fun evening, because Kiwanians wanted a lot of people to come. The event was held both as a membership drive and a way to let the general public see the kind of community involvement that is the clubs hallmark. In the Madison County Senior Centers spacious dining room, there was plenty of room for dancing to all kinds of music, with live entertainment from karaoke to some great comedy by Timothy McCray of Madison. About 20 door prizes were given away throughout the evening, and the club would like to thank the provider who made all those prizes available. In addition, there is an ongoing rafe for a 50 LED at-screen TV, with the drawing to be held at Down Home Days, April 19th. Folks at the Valentine Ball had a chance to buy a few $5 rafe tickets if they wished, and people can continue to buy rafe tickets from any Kiwanis member from now until the drawing. The proceeds from that will go toward the Kiwanis Club of Madisons Scholarship Fund. Greene Publishing, Inc.

Going green is becoming more popular, not only in everyday life, but now in weddings as well. Green and sustainable choices can support local businesses and foster community and worldwide health so when making choices for your wedding; organic fabrics, owers, decorations and food is not only trendy, but is helpful to our environment. Confection/Dessert Bars While tiered cakes still are the standard for most wedding receptions, an upcoming, popular option or accompaniment to the cake is a candy buffet or confection bar. The table can have bride and groom favorites such as: pies, cookies, candies or whatever sweet treats is liked. The chosen confections can match the wedding theme and be elegant, such as gourmet chocolates or rustic and fun, such as colorful gumballs and brightly wrapped candies. Wedding Accessories Two of the most popular accessories right now are boleros and birdcage veils. Wedding boleros are short jackets that cover the shoulders and arms and were popular in the 1950s. They can be seen made of crochet, tulle, lace, velvet or silk and add an elegant touch to a sleeveless gown. The birdcage, or blusher veil, also hails from the 1950s and covers the eyes and nose with some covering the entire face, or only a portion of the face. Veils can be made of chiffon, organza or tulle and are made to coordinate with the bridal gown.

Dr. Victor DeNoble, who was employed in 1980 by the Philip Morris Research Center as a scientist in their top-secret research lab, gave a presentation at the Madison County Central School, Feb. 5, sharing with sixth through eighth grade students, his research on the effects of tobacco use. DeNobles work eventually brought to light the effects of nicotine in humans by monitoring its use on animals. He discovered it was not only highly addictive, but also changes the way our brain works and directly relates to heart attacks in smokers. Dr. DeNobles mantra throughout his presentation on how nicotine goes, from the blood to the heart to the brain surely stuck into the minds of students as DeNoble continually emphasized the danger this drug caused in our bodies. Dr. DeNoble gave an attention-grabbing presentation on how he successfully identied a nicotine substitute that didnt elevate the heart rate in animals, and how the tobacco company refused to allow him to publish his ndings and eventually red him, seizing his laboratory and data. DeNoble was bound by a secrecy document he had signed upon his employment with Philip Morris and was unable to lawfully go forward with his research ndings, until 1994, when he became the rst whistle blower against tobacco companies, exposing the truth of tobaccos harmful effects on the human body and directly leading to todays changes in public policy on tobacco use. Tobacco Free Florida, Tobacco Free Madison partnership and the Florida Department of Health in Madison sponsored Dr. DeNobles presentation in order to educate Madison County youth on the dangers of nicotine addiction, as well as to promote the local Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) in their mission of mobilizing, educating and equipping Florida youth to revolt against and deglamorize big tobacco. If you are interested in helping protect Madison County youth from the dangers of tobacco use, becoming a Tobacco Free Madison partnership member is a great way to start. Betsy Rykard, at the Madison County Health Department says, Our youth need you! To contact Rykard about becoming a partnership member, call (850) 9735000, ext. 118. If you are a tobacco user and are interested in quitting, Tobacco Free Florida offers three free and easy ways to quit: You can call the Florida Quitline at 1-877-U-CANNOW (1-877-822-6669) to speak with a Quit Coach who will help create a personalized quit plan for you; visit www.quitnow.net/orida and enroll in the Web Coach program that will help create you a web-based quit plan or sign up and attend Quit Smoking Now group classes at the Area Health Education Center (AHEC) by visiting the Florida Department of Health in Madison or by calling (850) 973-5000, ext. 118.SchoolMadison Enterprise-Recorder 9 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, February 21, 2014M C C S T e a c h e r s O f T h e W e e k By Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.Melissa Haynes is a fifth grade science teacher at Madison County Central School and says the most satisfying thing about her job as a teacher is being with the kids. The part of teaching she looks forward to the most is doing science labs with her students. Ms. Haynes became a teacher because she wanted to teach like her mother, and in teaching the students in her own classroom, her vision is to see all of them succeed. When asked who she looks up to as a teacher, she said Mrs. Cobb (another teacher at the Central School) because she is always upbeat and works hard with her students. Ms. Haynes interests outside of the classroom include reading, playing the piano and camping. The last book she read was Escape From The Deep, describing the last voyage and inhabitants of a WWII submarine, the USS Tang. Daphne Brooks is a math teacher and ESE Support Facilitator for grades six through eighth at the Madison County Central School. She comes from a family of teachers and she says, They instilled in me the importance of an education and how as a teacher we can inspire others to do great things in life. She does say its ironic that she became a math teacher because when she was in school, her favorite subjects were reading and literature. Ms. Brooks is in her 11thyear of teaching and all of those years have been at MCCS. Ms. Brooks describes herself as an avid reader and also enjoys watching movies. Her self-described strengths are My faith in God, my willingness to help others and having an open mind. She says the people she looks up to most are her parents because they made her into the person she is today.Greene Publishing, Inc.

Church/Turn Back Time10Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, February 21, 2014Our time of praise included Open the Eyes of My Heart and Faith is the Victory. For the offertory we sang The Churchs One Foundation and the orchestra played Amazing Grace, My Chains Are Gone. The worship choirs special was Jerusalem. We really appreciate the time and effort these folks put in to leading us in worship. Bro Gabe continued his preaching from the Sermon on the Mount using Matthew 6:25-34 as his text. Worry is something we all do. Worry here means consuming focus about things that take over our day. In the passage we see the relationship between God, nature and man. We are Gods supreme creation. We have an intimate Father who really cares about us and will tend to all our needs much more than He takes care of nature. We just need to exercise our faith in Him. Mission action is reaching out beyond the church walls and ministering to other folks in such a way that they too, want to be a part of our forever family. Jesus said it like this, As you are going, for you will be going, make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen. Matthew 28:19-20 Having said this, please look at the following events as opportunities that we have to teach, reach, disciple and baptize those with whom we come in contact.

Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
