By Emerald Greene, PublisherGreene Publishing, Inc. Iwatched as Paul Howell died, by lethal injection.Last year, I was asked by the Florida Press Association to be a state witness/media witness to the execution of Paul Augustus Howell. Howell was convicted of the 1992 murder of FHP Trooper Jimmy Fulford. The execution was scheduled for Feb. 26, 2013. However, the day of the execution, Howell was granted a stay of execution. For the last year, Howell has remained at the Florida State Prison on Death Row. Last month, his execution was once again planned. The date of Feb. 26 was yet once again picked as THE day his execution would be carried out and the time set was 6 p.m. On Wednesday, Feb. 26, I left Madison County at 1:30 p.m. headed to Raiford to the Florida State Prison. At 3:30 p.m. I, along with six other media representatives, met at the Media Staging Area, across the street from the prison, for a brief meeting with prison staff. It was reported at that time that Howell had eaten his last meal, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. He had one family member visit him earlier in the day and, upon his request, he had a Catholic spiritual advisor come visit him. At 5 p.m., all the media witnesses were put in a white van and transported into the Florida State Prison. Once inside, we were checked for contraband and then staged inside a break room to await the movement into the Death Chamber. At 5:50 p.m., we were led out of the break room down a large corridor, walked through a series of security gates and got into another waiting van. We were transported about a quarter of a mile down to the Q Wing where Death Row and the death chamber are housed. The van stopped within feet of the building. The door was unlocked and we walked into a hall. One turn to the right and we were in the witness chamber. We joined 14 other witnesses who were already seated in the room. It was a very clean room, neatly painted white and well lit. There were four rows of chairs. A total of 25 state witnesses (16 men and nine women) occupied the 40 provided chairs. In front of us was a large pane of glass, approximately 9’x3.’ We could not see into the death chamber, for a large drawn curtain had been lowered across the glass. Each one of us stared straight ahead, not a word being spoken. At 6:15 p.m., the curtain was raised. Howell, who was strapped onto a gurney, quickly raised his head and stared into the witness chamber, at each one of us. The gurney was facing the pane glass window; Howell was outstretched on it and covered with a sheet. The only things exposed were his head and arms. There were leather straps on both wrists, Ace bandages wrapped around his hands, and IV ports in both arms. There was nothing else in the room besides a telephone on the wall (to keep an open line between the Death Chamber and the Governor’s ofce) and a digital clock on the wall. At 6:16 p.m., Howell gave his nal words. “I apologize to the Fulford family for what happened back in 1992,” he began. He then made the statement that he had told Lester (Watson), “Don’t let a cop get in the car.” He then began to recount the story that led up to that fateful Feb. 1, 1992 day. He explained how he had originally planned on placing the bomb in a television set, but that Yolanda (his cousin) told him that he should put the bomb in a microwave because she (the woman in Marianna) would use the microwave to heat up the baby’s bottles. He said he had thought that was a good idea, so he built the bomb and put it in a microwave. Howell then said, “I told Lester, ‘No matter what happens, don’t let the police get in that car. I’m sorry about that and God bless you.”’ He ended his nal words by saying he felt the Fulford family was a very compassionate family and he had always remembered that. Howell then laid his head back on the gurney, closed his eyes, and began praying. At 6:18 p.m., it was announced that the execution process would begin. Howell still appeared to be praying, his lips moving and his eyes looking around the room. At 6:19 p.m., he had closed his eyes and lay motionless. Between 6:20 and 6:21 p.m., there were slight movements and twitching in Howell’s body. At 6:22 p.m., Howell was checked by the team warden to assess whether he was, in fact, unconscious. At this point, the team warden advised the executioners to continue forward in the execution and the lethal “medicine” continued to be injected. At 6:31 p.m., the team warden checked for signs of life from Howell. Upon nding none, a medical examiner was advised to enter the room. The medical examiner then checked Howell for vital signs. At 6:32 p.m., Paul Augustus Howell, convicted murderer, was pronounced dead. At 6:33 p.m., the curtain that separated the witness chamber and the death chamber was lowered. All 25 witnesses were then escorted from our seats, back into vans, and back to our destinations. However, before the media witnesses left for the evening, there was a short interview with Major Mark Welch of the FHP. He stated, “Twenty-two years ago this month, the patrol lost one of its most courageous and brave ofcers, Trooper Jimmy Fulford.” “Rather than reect on the incident that happened this night, we prefer to use this opportunity to honor Trooper Fulford and let this serve as a reminder of the dangers that law enforcement ofcers face each Our 149th Year, Number 25www.greenepublishing.com Since 1865, T elling It Like It Is And Defending The Peasant's Right T o Know Index 1 Section, 12 Pages Local Weather Viewpoints 2 Around Madison 3-6 Bridal Guide 7Church/History 8 Sports 9 Classieds/Legals 11Friday, February 28, 2014 Madison, Florida Jimmy Fulford Paul HowellFulford Killer Dies By Lethal Injection Paul Howell Executed After 22 Years Greene Publishing, Inc.

There once was a young boy who decided that he would like to meet God. So the next morning, he set off to nd Him. The young boy gured this might be a long endeavor, so he packed an extra-large lunch, with two sandwiches, drinks and snacks. As he was walking along looking for God, he happened to be beside the park and saw an elderly gentleman sitting on the park bench. The man looked so lonely that the boy sat down beside him and offered him a Twinkie. The older gentleman smiled and said thank you. The young boy thought the smile was so warm and kind, that he offered the man his extra sandwich and drink. The man smiled even larger, and the two sat and ate lunch. They spoke very little, but the boy was amazed at the warmth of the man's smile. After they nished eating, the boy realized that it was almost dark, and he needed to be getting home. He was two or three steps away when he stopped and ran back to the old man and hugged his neck. The man smiled the biggest and warmest smile of the day. When the little boy arrived home, his mother asked what he had done that day. "I had lunch with God," the little boy replied. "And He has the best smile ever." When the old man arrived home, his son asked him what he had been doing that day. "You know," the elderly man replied thoughtfully, "I had lunch with God. And He's a lot younger than I expected." Never underestimate what a simple meal, or some time, or even a smile might mean to someone else. It is not always the amount of the gift we give, sometimes it is simply the giving."That which you have done unto these, the least of My brethren, you have done this unto Me also."--Jesus Think about it. As a boy, I used to collect Topps baseball and football cards, comic books and wrestling magazines. These days, I collect my thoughts. Haphazardly strewn across the rocky and rough roads of today, I try to get the thoughts together so I can think out problems. It makes me wish that life were only as easy as high school algebra, where every problem has a solution. Sitting alone with God in my room, I realize that I have to be honest with Him. I ask myself if my actions have been selfish or self-serving. Have my actions hurt anyone? Have my actions helped anyone? Have I put any idol of any kind or any person of any type of relationship ahead of my relationship with God? Are their people I have failed to give credit to for doing good things? Are there times that I have sought glory for things I have done? Are there people who need prayer who I have neglected to pray for? Have I sought God's face through prayer and Bible study? One by one, the questions hurl themselves at me like a major league pitcher throwing blistering pitches into a catcher's mitt. Each fastball is caught, along with a few knuckleballs, sliders and curves and they go into the collection of thoughts. As I answer each question honestly, I sometimes discover things about myself that I don't like. If nothing else, these thoughts, these questions and these answers serve to humble me. Last month we discussed the importance of coaching youth who are dual-enrolled or virtual students on nding and keeping an effective planning tool. These suggestions are not limited to just these youth, but they are often the ones that are hindered the most when these time management methods are not in place. After the youth has selected the planning tool they feel the most comfortable with, have them take the next month's worth of assignments and extracurricular activities and input it into their system. Only start with the rst month as you do not want them becoming overwhelmed and discouraged from the beginning. The next step is helping them establish a daily routine. Do not do this for them. The programs they are in require immense responsibility and selfmanagement skills. Plus you want to encourage them to nd the routine that will help them do their best not what you think is best. Advise them to ask the following questions to determining what type of routine will work for them: What times are my classes? These are xed unchangeable points that other priorities must be scheduled around. When are my as signments due? Again xed unchangeable points. What times are my extracurricular activities? Also xed points but are exible when determining priorities. What is the order of importance for each of my classes, assignments, activities, etc.? This will help them set their priorities and create a balanced system. Is my schedule too busy and if so which activity should I consider eliminating or can I rearrange things to participate in all of my commitments? How long does each activity last? Class A is from 9 a.m. 10:45 a.m., Softball practice is 4:30 p.m. 7 p.m., etc. How much time do I need to dedicate to doing my best for each of my commitments? Essay #3 needs an hour of commitment each day for two weeks, worksheet #8 needs 30 minutes one day, exercise routine needs 90 minutes four days a week, etc. After the youth has considered each of these questions, their unique schedule should be mostly complete. Help them review their schedule to see if anything has been duplicated or forgotten. Help the youth double check for overlapping appointments or over-scheduling their hours (remind them they have to relax and sleep sometime!). Take time each week during the rst month of this new schedule to check in with the youth. See how well they think their unique schedule is working. Have them keep notes of things that are working and things they would like to change. During the last week of the month, go over these notes and have them prepare their next two to three months in their calendar, adjusting where needed. Remember schedules are guidelines and should have some exibility. Next month we will discuss staying involved while creating a self-managing youth in these unique educational environments.

Pryor Madison County Extension ServiceBecky V. BennettGuest Columnist Something To Think AboutBy Harvey Greene Have Lunch With God Harvey GreeneGuest Columnist H4: Head, Heart, Hands, & Health We were saved from a "State Exchange" by Gov. Rick Scott. A "State Exchange?" Yes. That was to be the agency to implement OBAMA CARE. Obama Care was to be set up on a Federal basis, but states were enabled to opt out if they wanted to run their own program. States like Maryland, Minnesota and Oregon, established their own state exchanges. These home grown exchanges have all been plagued by technological problems that have kept customers unhappy and enrollment goals unmet. They are running closely behind the failed federal online insurance exchange. Everyone that's associated with the consequences of this terrible law, including the state legislators who created these exchanges, and the governors in charge of running them, are running scared. Governor Scott, and the Florida Legislature, disapproved of a state exchange last Spring. At a State Senate public hearing on the issue, over 300 participants showed up, and of those, virtually two thirds voiced opposition. The opposition was led by Mrs. KrisAnne Hall, of Live Oak. It was a sight to behold. Mrs. Hall was allowed ve minutes to speak, as were all the participants. But as she used up her ve minutes, different people in the audience piped up and gave her their ve minutes. The Committee Chairman, however, would allow her only one half hour, of those gifts of other people's "ve minutes," to fully explain why Florida would not benet from such an exchange. It was beautiful to see such citizenship in action. Mrs. Hall held the Committee spellbound with her exposition and knowledge about the act and its ramications. Talk about: "I told you so." She set the tone and, really, the State Senate Committee, just tore into the very idea of the State Exchanges. It never had a chance, there after. And as the March 31 enrollment deadline nears, panic is being shown by those States which established the exchanges, as well as at the federal level. President Barack Obama's health care law has hurt his approval rating and put congressional Democrats on the defensive. Madison County's delegation to the State Legislature did us proud, on this issue. We have two State Senators, Charles Dean, from Inverness, who voted against establishing a State Exchange. Bill Montford, of Tallahassee, on the other hand, voted to establish it. Our member of the House, Halsey Beshears, of Monticello, voted against setting up the exchange. Other States have had to learn the hard way, about Obama Care and state exchanges. There is a lot of disillusionment in States, like Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oregon and Maryland. Their governors, all up for re-election, are going to have a rough time. They bought off-the-shelf software, and hired wonder boy outts for installation. And then, they stood back and wondered what went wrong. Thank you, KrisAnne, for telling our Legislature what they would be facing, and for giving those who need health care, a break! Saved By Scott! ____________________________________________________ THE REPUBLICAN CLUB OF MADISON COUNTY Meets March 10 at 12 noon at Shelby's Restaurant Neil Rice from Taylor Co. will speak on Amendment 1 threats to private property rights.

Dyonta Rose was handcuffed and arrested on drug charges after police allegedly found narcotics in his backpack. Rose was able to escape from the ofcer and later that evening made the 911 call, requesting an ambulance, complaining that the handcuffs he was wearing was cutting off his circulation. Police responded to the call and took Rose back into custody where he is now facing felony charges of possession of a controlled substance, escape, tampering with evidence and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.Doctor Discovers Drugs When Treating Gunshot To Man's ButtocksIn Marrero, La., a 20-year-old man was arrested after being treated at the LSU Interim Public Hospital in New Orleans. Police dispatched to a shooting found Akili Bailey with gunshot wounds to his buttocks, leg and foot along with 21-yearold Treon Florant with gunshot wounds to his neck, leg and knee. Both men were taken to the hospital for treatment, but when doctors attempted to help Bailey, they said he resisted treatment and appeared to be "clenching his buttocks together." Bailey was charged with possession of derivatives of coca leaves after a doctor found a small bag containing 2.5 grams of cocaine between the cheeks of Bailey's buttocks.Marijuana Donated To Salvation ArmyIn Sugarcreek, Pa., police are investigating a recent donation to the Venango County Salvation Army outlet. Workers at the outlet called police after they found a "substantial quantity" of marijuana in a bag that was mixed in with some donated clothes. Sugarcreek Borough Police Chief Matt Carlson said, "We've had guns, cash, rings and now marijuana." Workers at the Salvation Army are working with police to try and nd the donor.Tens Of Thousands Of Euros Shredded As GarbageIn Munich, Germany, tens of thousands of Euros were shredded at a waste disposal site after somehow ending up thrown out with someone's garbage. Workers at the Moosach waste disposal plant was running trash, collected from the public, through the industrial shredder when shredded Euro notes started coming out. Police said the money was still legal tender and handling it as a lost property case. They think it may have been thrown away accidentally, maybe while someone was cleaning out a house without the knowledge of a hidden cache of cash. If the owner of the money can't be found, it will be given to the employees at the waste disposal site.World NewsBy Rose Klein The MadisonEnterprise-Recorder PublisherEmerald GreeneSenior Staff WriterJacob BembryStaff WritersLynette Norris, Rose KleinGraphic DesignerTori SelfAdvertising Sales RepresentativesJeanette Dunn, Shanna SwopeBookkeeperBrooke KinsleyClassified and Legal AdsCheltsie KinsleyDeadline for classi“eds is Monday at 3 p.m.Deadline for legal advertisements is Wednesday at 3 p.m. There will be a $7 charge for affidavits.Circulation DepartmentSheree MillerSubscription Rates:In-County $35 Out-of-County $45 E-Edition $25 ($5 add on to existing subscription) (State & local taxes included)Since 1865 -Telling it like it is with honesty and integrity.ŽThe Madison The Madison Enterprise-Recorder Enterprise-RecorderMadison Recorder established 1865 New Enterprise established 1901 Consolidated June 25, 1908 Published weekly by Greene Publishing Inc., 1695 S SR 53, Madison, FL 32340.

From Page 1and every day they put on their uniform and leave their homes and their families behind." Jimmy Fulford was a resident of Madison County and was killed during the line of duty in Jefferson County, at the Aucilla exit. He was only 35 years old, a husband and the father of two small children. Fulford has always been described as a man who "loved God," a man you could "trust completely" and a man who "loved the Florida Highway Patrol." It was said that Fulford's life was a true testimony and witness for Christ, for he was a good Christian man. Fulford was also described as someone who went into law enforcement in order to help people, not for a power trip nor for catching people, but for his love of helping people. Jefferson County Sheriff David Hobbs was also one of the state witnesses for Paul Howell's execution. Following the execution he had this to say, "Jimmy was a good friend. I wanted to do it (witness the execution) for him; for I know he would have done the same for me." "When he was killed I didn't just lose a good friend, but we ALL lost a good friend. But worst of all, his family lost him, too. It's been 22 years coming and I'm just glad it's nally over." DEATH R OW FACTS The Supreme Court and the death penalty: The case of Furman vs. Georgia was decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in June 1972. In that case, the Court held that capital punishment was unconstitutional and struck down state death penalty laws nationwide. As a result, the death sentences of 95 men and one woman on Florida's Death Row were commuted to life in prison. However, after the Furman decision, the Florida Legislature revised the death penalty statutes in case the Court reinstated capital punishment in the future. In 1976 the Supreme Court overturned its ruling in Furman and upheld the constitutionality of the death penalty in the case of Gregg vs. Georgia. Executions resumed in Florida in 1979 when John Spenkelink became the first Death Row inmate to be executed under the new statutes. Means of execution: In January 2000, the Florida Legislature passed legislation that allows lethal injection as an alternative method of execution in Florida. Florida administers executions by lethal injection or electric chair at the execution chamber located at Florida State Prison. The three-legged electric chair was constructed from oak by Department of Corrections personnel in 1998 and was installed at Florida State Prison (FSP) in Raiford in 1999. The previous chair was made by inmates from oak in 1923 after the Florida Legislature designated electrocution as the official mode of execution. (Prior to that, executions were carried out by counties, usually by hanging.) First executed inmate: Frank Johnson was the first inmate executed in Florida's electric chair on October 7, 1924. In 1929 and from May 1964 to May 1979 there were no executions in Florida. The executioner: Is a private citizen who is paid $150 per execution. State law allows for his or her identity to remain anonymous. The Daily R outine of Death R ow Inmates Death R ow & Death Watch cells: A Death Row cell is 6 x 9 x 9.5 feet high. Florida State Prison also has Death Watch cells to incarcerate inmates awaiting execution after the Governor signs a death warrant for them. A Death Watch cell is 12 x 7 x 8.5 feet high. Men on Death Row are housed at Florida State Prison in Raiford, FL, and Union Correctional Institution in Raiford, FL. The women on Death Row are housed at Lowell Annex in Lowell, FL. Meals: Death Row inmates are served meals three times a day: at 5:00 am, from 10:30 am to 11:00 am and from 4:00 pm to 4:30 pm. Food is prepared by prison staff and transported in insulated carts to the cells. Inmates are given sporks with their meals and they eat from the provided tray. Prior to execution, an inmate may request a last meal. To avoid extravagance, the food to prepare the last meal must cost no more than $40 and must be purchased locally. Showers: The inmates may shower every other day. Security: Death Row inmates are counted at least once an hour. They are escorted in handcuffs and wear them everywhere except in their cells, the exercise yard and the shower. They are in their cells at all times except for medical reasons, exercise, social or legal visits or media interviews. When a death warrant is signed the inmate is put under Death Watch status and is allowed a legal and social phone call. Mail, Magazines & Entertainment: Inmates may receive mail every day except holidays and weekends. They may have snacks, radios and 13" televisions in their cells.

When an individual dies, the executor is faced with an important decision that has the potential to impact the taxes owed by the estate and its heirs. The executor will have the option of valuing the estate on the date of death, or on the six-month anniversary of death„ the Alternate Valuation Date.Ž Pick a Date For estates with substantial holdings in stocks, the use of the Alternate Valuation Date may be an appropriate approach if the executor believes stock prices will be lower than they were on the date of death. It may seem like an obvious decision and simple choice, but its not. Heres why. If the executor selects the Alternate Valuation Date, it may have ramifications for the heirs. When heirs inherit assets, such as stocks, they may receive a step-up in the cost basis. (If the value of an asset is more than what it was when the original owner acquired it, the heirs received a step upŽ in cost basis „ meaning the heirs valuation is reset when the death occurred.) Market Moves Lets take a look at a hypothetical example. Say Dad bought Out of Date Technologies at $10 per share several years ago. At his death, the stock is worth $35. The executor used the Alternate Valuation Date and due to market movements, six months later, the stock is worth $28. His daughter, Julie, will inherit this asset and receive a step-up in the cost basis to the value declared by the estate. Lets now assume that Julie sells the stock a short time later at $35. If the estate used the value on the date of death„$35„she might owe no capital gains taxes since she is selling the stock at the same price as her cost basis. But, since she received the stock with the lower cost basis„$28„ because the executor chose the Alternate Valuation Date, capital gains taxes on the $7 per share gain may be due. In this example, the estate saved money by electing the Alternate Valuation Date, but the heir was exposed to a lower cost basis and the prospect of paying higher capital gains tax in the future. Consider & Balance As the executor thinks through this balancing act, he or she should consider the relative prevailing tax rates for the estate and for the heirs to ascertain what approach may result in the most efficient transfer, net of taxes, to the heirs.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Heather Locke, Lt. Governor for District Three of Florida Kiwanis, visited the Kiwanis Club of Madison with a message of making a difference for the future. Part of her message was an update from Florida Kiwanis District Three Gov. Matthew Cantrall, outlining his “Five Steps to Excellence” plan for the 14 clubs in this district, and the other part contained kudos for what the Madison club was already accomplishing. For Step One, stop declining membership, Locke praised the club for having already taken several positive steps in this direction, including the recent Valentine’s Day Ball at the Senior Center. Club members and the general public gathered for what was part membership drive and part fun and festive way to get the Kiwanis name out in the community, meet new people and introduce them to what Kiwanis is all about. Step Two was to get rid of old projects that were no longer working, no longer raising the funds they used to, or no longer serving their original purpose, and replace them with new ones. Step Three was to not let the Service Leadership Programs become inactive, another thing Locke said the Madison Club already had a great handle on with its Key Clubs in local schools. Step Four, alleviating hunger in the community, also garnered words of praise from Locke. The Madison club’s months-long peanut butter and jelly drive has already delivered several hundreds of jars of PB&J to Consolidated Christian Ministries and other food pantries. The club has some other ongoing projects as well, that, while not directly related to hunger, nevertheless go toward meeting needs of low-income families in the community, such as the diaper drive. For several months, club members have been collecting packages of disposable diapers, and making deliveries to the Madison County Health Department, A Woman’s Pregnancy Center of Madison, and Healthy Start of Greenville. Step Five concerns the worldwide Project Eliminate, a global inoculation program of Kiwanis International that seeks to rid the world of maternal neonatal tetanus (MNT). MNT kills one baby every nine minutes, causing painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. Survival for both mother and baby is unlikely. Project Eliminate has eradicated the disease in 33 countries so far, but there are still 25 to go. Locke also had some definite goals in mind for all 14 clubs in District Three as a whole. Aside from building their membership, she hoped District Three would be able to reach a goal of 100,000 diapers collected and delivered by April 12. The district has already met one third of this goal, with a lot of help from the Madison Club. She also hopes for increased donations to Project Eliminate, to bring Kiwanis International that much closer to global eradication of MNT. Much of her message focused on service, and understanding how individuals can make a difference by learning to see the world differently. Something as seemingly small as changing one’s viewpoint from “time to go to work” to “time to make a difference” was a great way to start. “Change your words, change your world,” she said. “Be the difference-makers.” Greene Publishing, Inc.

Submitted by Dan FennemanIn March of 2013, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Cattle Identification rules were implemented requiring all cattle 18 months old or older be identified for interstate (across state line) transportation. Beef cattle under 18 months of age, unless they are moved interstate for shows, exhibitions, rodeos, or recreational events, are exempt from the official identification requirement in this rule. The purpose of adult cattle and bison identification is simply to provide trace-back to the original owner, in the event of a serious animal disease outbreak, such as tuberculosis (TB), mad cow disease (BSE), or hoof and mouth disease. In response to the USDA’s rule, states have been developing rules for cattle identification for intrastate (within state) transportation. Florida’s cattle identification rule became effective on Feb. 19. The Cattle Identification Rule(s) (Chapter 5C-31, Florida Administrative Code) has been published with an effective date of Feb. 19. These rules are intended to improve the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Animal Industry’s ability to respond to serious disease outbreaks and to help the industry maintain out-of-state markets. These rules will require cattle 18 months of age or older, entering the state and moving within the state, to be tagged with Official Identification. Cattle moving to Approved Tagging Sites for tagging, cattle moving directly to slaughter, and cattle moving between pastures under normal ranching operations are exempt under the rule. Approved Tagging Sites are livestock markets, stockyards and other locations that are authorized to apply Official Identification as a service to cattle owners. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is providing a period of continued education and outreach prior to commencing enforcement actions. They are planning to fully enforce this rule beginning April 7, 2014. At that time, eligible cattle moving within the state must be officially identified or the cattle will be quarantined until officially identified. Subsequent violations will result in administrative fines. The Madison County extension office in collaboration with Townsends Live Stock Market will be hosting an open discussion educational meeting concerning this new rule on Thursday, March 13, 2014 at Townsends Live Stock, 387 SE Bandit St. Madison. All interested parties are invited to attend. Hamburgers will be served starting at 5 p.m. with the meeting to follow.

The Florida Forest Service marked the occasion by helping plant 27 trees at the Madison County Central School. Trees were purchased with special funding provided by the Florida Forest Service. Second graders joined in on the fun by planting the trees and learning about the history of Arbor Day. Arbor Day is actually celebrated twice a year. Once on the last Friday in April for National Arbor Day and once on the third Friday in January (January 17) for Florida’s State Arbor Day. The reason for each state having a separate State Arbor Day is to coincide with each state’s primary tree planting season. Some states, like Vermont, do not hold their State Arbor Day until May. Arbor Day is set aside as a day to promote planting trees and learning about their importance to our way of life and our very survival. Trees provide us with a variety of benefits including cleaner air, cleaner water, oxygen, many everyday commercial products, wildlife habitat, and recreational opportunities. More information on tree planting and Arbor Day can be obtained from the National Arbor Day Foundation at www.arborday.org or from the Madison County Forester at (850) 9735115.Florida Forest Service Celebrates State Arbor Day 2014 Birddog Jamboree Coming To MadisonBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.The Birddog Jamboree is coming to Madison this year, the second weekend of March.

By Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc.If you’ve lived in Madison County for any length of time, you will have already heard about, seen, or eaten a Mrs. Leslie’s cake. The cakes are tall, due to their 10 layers, and covered in old-fashioned icings, that will have you reminiscing about your Grandmother’s kitchen. The business was started by Audrey Leslie, a retired teacher, who began baking cakes from her home and selling them locally to people in the community. granddaughter Lynn Leslie-Hanners joined her Grandmother after her first son was born, around 1998, when she wanted an income that would allow her to stay home with her children. Hanners said her grandmother’s cakes had grown into “a fair little business,” but with the help of family, Hanners’ cousin Amy Ratliff and sister-in-law, Kara Leslie, the little cake business has grown into sweet success for Mrs. Leslie’s. Shortly after Hanners joined the business, her grandmother stopped baking, but stayed busy by selling the cakes and talking with customers, which was something Hanners said she loved to do. The business was moved out of Mrs. Leslie’s home and into a shop built behind Hanners’ home, which she had licensed, enabling more cakes to be baked and sold. Mrs. Leslie’s cakes can now be found in eight different locations throughout Madison, Lake City, Perry, Valdosta, Lee and Pinetta. When selecting a Mrs. Leslie’s cake, you can choose from chocolate (their top seller), caramel, pineapple-cream cheese, lemoncheese, red velvet (Hanners’ favorite), coconut and mayhaw jelly (when in season). The cakes come on a board and wrapped in cellophane, ready to slice and eat. Hanners said they do not decorate any of their cakes because they stay so busy just making them that there would be no time to decorate, but it works out because this way their focus can remain on the cake’s flavor. That said, the cakes would make great birthday cakes with the addition of candles or a groom’s cake, topped with fruit or fresh, nontoxic flowers. With the current trend of confection and dessert bars at parties and wedding receptions, several flavors of cake would be welcome on a table nestled with other desserts. If you would like to order one of Mrs. Leslie’s cakes, you can call the shop at (850) 929-7568. To find out more about Mrs. Leslie’s cakes and business, visit their webpage atwww.mrslesliescakes.com or visit their Facebook page. After trying a slice, or two, of cake that Hanners said they’ve not changed since her grandmother made them, you will agree these delicious cakes are “Just like Grandma made them.”BridalMadison Enterprise-Recorder 7 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, February 28, 2014 €Wedding Gowns €Bridesmaid Dresses € Flower Girl Dresses € Mother-Of-The-Bride € Prom € Pageant Phone: (229) 386-1932Website: www.uniquelyyoursbridal.com121 North Central Avenue, Suite E Tifton, Georgia 31794 Mrs. Leslies Cakes: Old-Fashioned Flavor For Todays Special OccasionsPhoto SubmittedMrs. Leslies best-selling 10-layer, from scratchŽ cake, chocolate.

Church/Turn Back Time8 Madison Enterprise-Recorder www.greenepublishing.com Friday, February 28, 2014Our time of praise included “Forever” and “My Faith Has Found a Resting Place.” For the offertory we sang “Because He Lives.” The worship choir’s special was “Revelation Song” based on Revelation 5:12 “saying with a loud voice: Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!' ” Bro Gabe continued his preaching from the Sermon on the Mount using Matthew 7:1-6 as his text. The word judge implies acting like a judge who pronounces condemnation. It does not do away with common sense or seeing wrong for wrong. Believers are to be judges in civil matters and will judge angels. However, because of Rom. 3:23 we have no right to condemn. The solution is not to just walk away, rather remove the plank from our own eye so we are able to see clearly to help restore others. Our time of worship included observing the ordinance of the Lord's supper.

SportsMadison Enterprise-Recorder 9 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, February 28, 2014" What Is A Sports Trainer And What Does He Do?" By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.That’s a good question,” said Jake Pfeil, head trainer for the FSU Seminole Athletic Department. Pfiel, a graduate of Madison County High School who has also worked with the MCHS football and baseball teams before landing at FSU as the Associate Director of Sports Medicine, was the guest speaker at the Rotary Club of Madison, describing his role in the FSU athletic program. First of all, the proper term is “certified athletic trainer,” and it is a separate profession from “personal trainer.” It requires successful completion and graduation from a fouryear program in certified sports medicine, including sitting for all required exams. To work in college sports, add a master’s degree to that list of requirements. While Pfeil was in school, he gained some needed experience working in Madison’s football and baseball programs. He also went the route of summer internships, including a summer with the Atlanta Falcons. “It was a great experience,” he said of that summer. He was able to go back for two more summers after that and even do an entire season with the team in 2002. While working toward his goal, he met his wife, who is also an athletic trainer. “We’re lucky to be in the same town, with offices about 20 yards apart (on the FSU campus),” he said. Still, a trainer’s day can be so busy that the two of them might not see each other all day, despite the close proximity of their workspaces. The sports training facility at FSU takes up 15,000 square feet and has 11 fulltime employees, along with a number of assistants and interns. Beyond the facility, there is a network of physicians, orthopedic surgeons, dentists and other health professionals who may be called on to treat a student athlete for any number of reasons. The facility takes care of about 130 football players, and 500 total student athletes. The general purpose of the facility and of sports medicine in general is the care, prevention and rehabilitation of athletic injuries, but it goes beyond that. Pfeil describes the facility as having all departments “working together as one unit to push kids in the right direction and get them where they need to be professionally someday.” That includes attention to their academics and nutrition, as well as the physical training. He also took issue with the “dumb jock” stereotype, saying that the student athletes he encountered were anything but. Athletic programs demand performance and the kids must keep up their grades in order to remain eligible, budgeting their time for classes, study, practice and play. “If it was easy, we all would’ve done it,” he said. “With these kids, the academic pressure is on.” The life of a trainer can be even more hectic. A typical day for Pfeil means rising at 6:30 a.m. and getting to the staff meeting with coach Jimbo Fisher at 7:30, where they go over the injury report and plan for the day. This is also when student athletes with any kind of illness or injury will come in. It is one of the first things they are taught when they come into the program – if they wake up feeling ill or out of sorts for any reason, they immediately go to the facility and see a doctor to get whatever they need in the way of bandages, medicine or other treatment; this must be taken care of first thing in the morning before their first class; if they are deemed too ill or their injury too great to allow them to attend practice, then their coaches will be notified not to expect them. Seek treatment at once is the policy. Do not stay home and stay in bed without telling anyone. In the ongoing quest of prevention and keeping the students healthy and getting them back to a state of health when they are hurt or sick, there is also the ongoing task of scheduling necessary appointments with any needed healthcare professionals in the network that regularly works with the FSU athletic department, and seeing that the students get to those appointments. By 2:15 p.m., students are coming in to get ready for practice. This means getting taped up and suited up for the football players, and then getting them out on the field for a twohour practice. 5:30 p.m. is the post-practice session, when any injuries are checked out and any ongoing treatments are administered. One might think that after the football season was over, things would settle down a bit, but this is actually one of the busiest times of the year for the athletic training department. This is the “clean-up time” when any season-long issues are addressed and any needed surgeries are scheduled. Prevention is also something the facility takes very seriously. All new recruits go through Pfiel and the team doctor. Physicals, medical histories and one-onone interviews with each student help spot any red flags, such as a biological parent who died suddenly before age 45. Are there cardiac problems that run in the family? If the athlete has a heart attack and dies on the practice field during a hot day, it is a liability for the school, said Pfiel, but it’s also a heartbreaking loss for the family. “We even do genetic testing to look for possible problems,” he said. “They’re somebody’s kids.” And that warrants taking every step possible to prevent a tragedy. There is also the drug testing policy and procedure, which he hates. It’s a huge job, but it is required. The program randomly tests about five athletes a week throughout the year, but Pfeil says that the department won’t get rid of a player for screwing up once. Instead, they get him or her into treatment or rehab. “We’re here to help people do the right thing and get them going in the right direction,” he says. When the kids are caught with a positive drug test, treatment and rehab programs can usually help them get back on track. Usually. “That doesn’t always happen,” he acknowledges. “Sometimes, we have to let people go.” It’s another part of the job he is not fond of, but it’s something he does when he has to. The life of a college sports trainer is a busy one, charged with the responsibility for the health and well being of student athletes, getting them to perform at their peak while avoiding the pitfalls of lifelong injury, dealing with new recruits who have been treated like stars at their high schools and getting them to learn that new things will be expected of them, that “this is what you’re going to do, and we’re not the bad guys here.” The field of sports medicine is also expanding beyond its former bounds of college and team sports. NASCAR now has a sports medicine program for its drivers. Major corporations who are getting into the area of health and fitness activities for their employees, to keep them energetic and productive, are now bringing in sports trainer programs to prevent or treat any injuries that might occur. The field is also expanding into health and fitness clinics for corporations, organizations and other non-traditional arenas as more people understand not only the need to be active and healthy but also the need to do so safely by understanding their bodies and listening to those who are trained to help them reach their goals. It’s something for average coach potatoes to think about next time they tune in to watch their favorite team play ball. Greene Publishing, Inc.

By Emerald Greene, PublisherGreene Publishing, Inc. Iwatched as Paul Howell died, by lethal injection.Last year, I was asked by the Florida Press Association to be a state witness/media witness to the execution of Paul Augustus Howell. Howell was convicted of the 1992 murder of FHP Trooper Jimmy Fulford. The execution was scheduled for Feb. 26, 2013. However, the day of the execution, Howell was granted a stay of execution. For the last year, Howell has remained at the Florida State Prison on Death Row. Last month, his execution was once again planned. The date of Feb. 26 was yet once again picked as THE day his execution would be carried out and the time set was 6 p.m. On Wednesday, Feb. 26, I left Madison County at 1:30 p.m. headed to Raiford to the Florida State Prison. At 3:30 p.m. I, along with six other media representatives, met at the Media Staging Area, across the street from the prison, for a brief meeting with prison staff. It was reported at that time that Howell had eaten his last meal, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. He had one family member visit him earlier in the day and, upon his request, he had a Catholic spiritual advisor come visit him. At 5 p.m., all the media witnesses were put in a white van and transported into the Florida State Prison. Once inside, we were checked for contraband and then staged inside a break room to await the movement into the Death Chamber. At 5:50 p.m., we were led out of the break room down a large corridor, walked through a series of security gates and got into another waiting van. We were transported about a quarter of a mile down to the Q Wing where Death Row and the death chamber are housed. The van stopped within feet of the building. The door was unlocked and we walked into a hall. One turn to the right and we were in the witness chamber. We joined 14 other witnesses who were already seated in the room. It was a very clean room, neatly painted white and well lit. There were four rows of chairs. A total of 25 state witnesses (16 men and nine women) occupied the 40 provided chairs. In front of us was a large pane of glass, approximately 9x3. We could not see into the death chamber, for a large drawn curtain had been lowered across the glass. Each one of us stared straight ahead, not a word being spoken. At 6:15 p.m., the curtain was raised. Howell, who was strapped onto a gurney, quickly raised his head and stared into the witness chamber, at each one of us. The gurney was facing the pane glass window; Howell was outstretched on it and covered with a sheet. The only things exposed were his head and arms. There were leather straps on both wrists, Ace bandages wrapped around his hands, and IV ports in both arms. There was nothing else in the room besides a telephone on the wall (to keep an open line between the Death Chamber and the Governors ofce) and a digital clock on the wall. At 6:16 p.m., Howell gave his nal words. I apologize to the Fulford family for what happened back in 1992, he began. He then made the statement that he had told Lester (Watson), Dont let a cop get in the car. He then began to recount the story that led up to that fateful Feb. 1, 1992 day. He explained how he had originally planned on placing the bomb in a television set, but that Yolanda (his cousin) told him that he should put the bomb in a microwave because she (the woman in Marianna) would use the microwave to heat up the babys bottles. He said he had thought that was a good idea, so he built the bomb and put it in a microwave. Howell then said, I told Lester, No matter what happens, dont let the police get in that car. Im sorry about that and God bless you. He ended his nal words by saying he felt the Fulford family was a very compassionate family and he had always remembered that. Howell then laid his head back on the gurney, closed his eyes, and began praying. At 6:18 p.m., it was announced that the execution process would begin. Howell still appeared to be praying, his lips moving and his eyes looking around the room. At 6:19 p.m., he had closed his eyes and lay motionless. Between 6:20 and 6:21 p.m., there were slight movements and twitching in Howells body. At 6:22 p.m., Howell was checked by the team warden to assess whether he was, in fact, unconscious. At this point, the team warden advised the executioners to continue forward in the execution and the lethal medicine continued to be injected. At 6:31 p.m., the team warden checked for signs of life from Howell. Upon nding none, a medical examiner was advised to enter the room. The medical examiner then checked Howell for vital signs. At 6:32 p.m., Paul Augustus Howell, convicted murderer, was pronounced dead. At 6:33 p.m., the curtain that separated the witness chamber and the death chamber was lowered. All 25 witnesses were then escorted from our seats, back into vans, and back to our destinations. However, before the media witnesses left for the evening, there was a short interview with Major Mark Welch of the FHP. He stated, Twenty-two years ago this month, the patrol lost one of its most courageous and brave ofcers, Trooper Jimmy Fulford. Rather than reect on the incident that happened this night, we prefer to use this opportunity to honor Trooper Fulford and let this serve as a reminder of the dangers that law enforcement ofcers face each Our 149th Year, Number 25www.greenepublishing.com Since 1865, Telling It Like It Is And Defending The Peasant's Right To Know Index1 Section, 12 Pages Local WeatherViewpoints 2 Around Madison 3-6 Bridal Guide 7Church/History 8 Sports 9 Classieds/Legals 11Friday, February 28, 2014 Madison, Florida Jimmy Fulford Paul HowellFulford Killer Dies By Lethal Injection Paul Howell Executed After 22 Years Greene Publishing, Inc.

There once was a young boy who decided that he would like to meet God. So the next morning, he set off to nd Him. The young boy gured this might be a long endeavor, so he packed an extra-large lunch, with two sandwiches, drinks and snacks. As he was walking along looking for God, he happened to be beside the park and saw an elderly gentleman sitting on the park bench. The man looked so lonely that the boy sat down beside him and offered him a Twinkie. The older gentleman smiled and said thank you. The young boy thought the smile was so warm and kind, that he offered the man his extra sandwich and drink. The man smiled even larger, and the two sat and ate lunch. They spoke very little, but the boy was amazed at the warmth of the mans smile. After they nished eating, the boy realized that it was almost dark, and he needed to be getting home. He was two or three steps away when he stopped and ran back to the old man and hugged his neck. The man smiled the biggest and warmest smile of the day. When the little boy arrived home, his mother asked what he had done that day. I had lunch with God, the little boy replied. And He has the best smile ever. When the old man arrived home, his son asked him what he had been doing that day. You know, the elderly man replied thoughtfully, I had lunch with God. And Hes a lot younger than I expected. Never underestimate what a simple meal, or some time, or even a smile might mean to someone else. It is not always the amount of the gift we give, sometimes it is simply the giving.That which you have done unto these, the least of My brethren, you have done this unto Me also.--Jesus Think about it. As a boy, I used to collect Topps baseball and football cards, comic books and wrestling magazines. These days, I collect my thoughts. Haphazardly strewn across the rocky and rough roads of today, I try to get the thoughts together so I can think out problems. It makes me wish that life were only as easy as high school algebra, where every problem has a solution. Sitting alone with God in my room, I realize that I have to be honest with Him. I ask myself if my actions have been selfish or self-serving. Have my actions hurt anyone? Have my actions helped anyone? Have I put any idol of any kind or any person of any type of relationship ahead of my relationship with God? Are their people I have failed to give credit to for doing good things? Are there times that I have sought glory for things I have done? Are there people who need prayer who I have neglected to pray for? Have I sought Gods face through prayer and Bible study? One by one, the questions hurl themselves at me like a major league pitcher throwing blistering pitches into a catchers mitt. Each fastball is caught, along with a few knuckleballs, sliders and curves and they go into the collection of thoughts. As I answer each question honestly, I sometimes discover things about myself that I dont like. If nothing else, these thoughts, these questions and these answers serve to humble me. Last month we discussed the importance of coaching youth who are dual-enrolled or virtual students on nding and keeping an effective planning tool. These suggestions are not limited to just these youth, but they are often the ones that are hindered the most when these time management methods are not in place. After the youth has selected the planning tool they feel the most comfortable with, have them take the next months worth of assignments and extracurricular activities and input it into their system. Only start with the rst month as you do not want them becoming overwhelmed and discouraged from the beginning. The next step is helping them establish a daily routine. Do not do this for them. The programs they are in require immense responsibility and selfmanagement skills. Plus you want to encourage them to nd the routine that will help them do their best not what you think is best. Advise them to ask the following questions to determining what type of routine will work for them: What times are my classes? These are xed unchangeable points that other priorities must be scheduled around. When are my assignments due? Again xed unchangeable points. What times are my extracurricular activities? Also xed points but are exible when determining priorities. What is the order of importance for each of my classes, assignments, activities, etc.? This will help them set their priorities and create a balanced system. Is my schedule too busy and if so which activity should I consider eliminating or can I rearrange things to participate in all of my commitments? How long does each activity last? Class A is from 9 a.m. 10:45 a.m., Softball practice is 4:30 p.m. 7 p.m., etc. How much time do I need to dedicate to doing my best for each of my commitments? Essay #3 needs an hour of commitment each day for two weeks, worksheet #8 needs 30 minutes one day, exercise routine needs 90 minutes four days a week, etc. After the youth has considered each of these questions, their unique schedule should be mostly complete. Help them review their schedule to see if anything has been duplicated or forgotten. Help the youth double check for overlapping appointments or over-scheduling their hours (remind them they have to relax and sleep sometime!). Take time each week during the rst month of this new schedule to check in with the youth. See how well they think their unique schedule is working. Have them keep notes of things that are working and things they would like to change. During the last week of the month, go over these notes and have them prepare their next two to three months in their calendar, adjusting where needed. Remember schedules are guidelines and should have some exibility. Next month we will discuss staying involved while creating a self-managing youth in these unique educational environments.

BennettGuest Columnist Something To Think AboutBy Harvey Greene Have Lunch With God Harvey GreeneGuest Columnist H4: Head, Heart, Hands, & Health We were saved from a State Exchange by Gov. Rick Scott. A State Exchange? Yes. That was to be the agency to implement OBAMA CARE. Obama Care was to be set up on a Federal basis, but states were enabled to opt out if they wanted to run their own program. States like Maryland, Minnesota and Oregon, established their own state exchanges. These home grown exchanges have all been plagued by technological problems that have kept customers unhappy and enrollment goals unmet. They are running closely behind the failed federal online insurance exchange. Everyone thats associated with the consequences of this terrible law, including the state legislators who created these exchanges, and the governors in charge of running them, are running scared. Governor Scott, and the Florida Legislature, disapproved of a state exchange last Spring. At a State Senate public hearing on the issue, over 300 participants showed up, and of those, virtually two thirds voiced opposition. The opposition was led by Mrs. KrisAnne Hall, of Live Oak. It was a sight to behold. Mrs. Hall was allowed ve minutes to speak, as were all the participants. But as she used up her ve minutes, different people in the audience piped up and gave her their ve minutes. The Committee Chairman, however, would allow her only one half hour, of those gifts of other peoples ve minutes, to fully explain why Florida would not benet from such an exchange. It was beautiful to see such citizenship in action. Mrs. Hall held the Committee spellbound with her exposition and knowledge about the act and its ramications. Talk about: I told you so. She set the tone and, really, the State Senate Committee, just tore into the very idea of the State Exchanges. It never had a chance, there after. And as the March 31 enrollment deadline nears, panic is being shown by those States which established the exchanges, as well as at the federal level. President Barack Obamas health care law has hurt his approval rating and put congressional Democrats on the defensive. Madison Countys delegation to the State Legislature did us proud, on this issue. We have two State Senators, Charles Dean, from Inverness, who voted against establishing a State Exchange. Bill Montford, of Tallahassee, on the other hand, voted to establish it. Our member of the House, Halsey Beshears, of Monticello, voted against setting up the exchange. Other States have had to learn the hard way, about Obama Care and state exchanges. There is a lot of disillusionment in States, like Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oregon and Maryland. Their governors, all up for re-election, are going to have a rough time. They bought off-the-shelf software, and hired wonder boy outts for installation. And then, they stood back and wondered what went wrong. Thank you, KrisAnne, for telling our Legislature what they would be facing, and for giving those who need health care, a break! Saved By Scott! ____________________________________________________ THE REPUBLICAN CLUB OF MADISON COUNTY Meets March 10 at 12 noon at Shelby's Restaurant Neil Rice from Taylor Co. will speak on Amendment 1 threats to private property rights.

Dyonta Rose was handcuffed and arrested on drug charges after police allegedly found narcotics in his backpack. Rose was able to escape from the ofcer and later that evening made the 911 call, requesting an ambulance, complaining that the handcuffs he was wearing was cutting off his circulation. Police responded to the call and took Rose back into custody where he is now facing felony charges of possession of a controlled substance, escape, tampering with evidence and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.D o c t o r D i s c o v e r s D r u g s W h e n T r e a t i n g G u n s h o t T o M a n s B u t t o c k s In Marrero, La., a 20-year-old man was arrested after being treated at the LSU Interim Public Hospital in New Orleans. Police dispatched to a shooting found Akili Bailey with gunshot wounds to his buttocks, leg and foot along with 21-yearold Treon Florant with gunshot wounds to his neck, leg and knee. Both men were taken to the hospital for treatment, but when doctors attempted to help Bailey, they said he resisted treatment and appeared to be clenching his buttocks together. Bailey was charged with possession of derivatives of coca leaves after a doctor found a small bag containing 2.5 grams of cocaine between the cheeks of Baileys buttocks.M a r i j u a n a D o n a t e d T o S a l v a t i o n A r m y In Sugarcreek, Pa., police are investigating a recent donation to the Venango County Salvation Army outlet.

Police said the money was still legal tender and handling it as a lost property case. They think it may have been thrown away accidentally, maybe while someone was cleaning out a house without the knowledge of a hidden cache of cash.

From Page 1and every day they put on their uniform and leave their homes and their families behind. Jimmy Fulford was a resident of Madison County and was killed during the line of duty in Jefferson County, at the Aucilla exit. He was only 35 years old, a husband and the father of two small children. Fulford has always been described as a man who loved God, a man you could trust completely and a man who loved the Florida Highway Patrol. It was said that Fulfords life was a true testimony and witness for Christ, for he was a good Christian man. Fulford was also described as someone who went into law enforcement in order to help people, not for a power trip nor for catching people, but for his love of helping people. Jefferson County Sheriff David Hobbs was also one of the state witnesses for Paul Howells execution. Following the execution he had this to say, Jimmy was a good friend. I wanted to do it (witness the execution) for him; for I know he would have done the same for me. When he was killed I didnt just lose a good friend, but we ALL lost a good friend. But worst of all, his family lost him, too. Its been 22 years coming and Im just glad its nally over. D E A T H R O W F A C T S T h e S u p r e m e C o u r t a n d t h e d e a t h p e n a l t y : The case of Furman vs. Georgia was decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in June 1972. In that case, the Court held that capital punishment was unconstitutional and struck down state death penalty laws nationwide. As a result, the death sentences of 95 men and one woman on Florida's Death Row were commuted to life in prison. However, after the Furman decision, the Florida Legislature revised the death penalty statutes in case the Court reinstated capital punishment in the future. In 1976 the Supreme Court overturned its ruling in Furman and upheld the constitutionality of the death penalty in the case of Gregg vs. Georgia. Executions resumed in Florida in 1979 when John Spenkelink became the first Death Row inmate to be executed under the new statutes. M e a n s o f e x e c u t i o n : In January 2000, the Florida Legislature passed legislation that allows lethal injection as an alternative method of execution in Florida. Florida administers executions by lethal injection or electric chair at the execution chamber located at Florida State Prison. The three-legged electric chair was constructed from oak by Department of Corrections personnel in 1998 and was installed at Florida State Prison (FSP) in Raiford in 1999. The previous chair was made by inmates from oak in 1923 after the Florida Legislature designated electrocution as the official mode of execution. (Prior to that, executions were carried out by counties, usually by hanging.) F i r s t e x e c u t e d i n m a t e : Frank Johnson was the first inmate executed in Florida's electric chair on October 7, 1924. In 1929 and from May 1964 to May 1979 there were no executions in Florida. T h e e x e c u t i o n e r : Is a private citizen who is paid $150 per execution. State law allows for his or her identity to remain anonymous. T h e D a i l y R o u t i n e o f D e a t h R o w I n m a t e s D e a t h R o w & D e a t h W a t c h c e l l s : A Death Row cell is 6 x 9 x 9.5 feet high. Florida State Prison also has Death Watch cells to incarcerate inmates awaiting execution after the Governor signs a death warrant for them. A Death Watch cell is 12 x 7 x 8.5 feet high. Men on Death Row are housed at Florida State Prison in Raiford, FL, and Union Correctional Institution in Raiford, FL. The women on Death Row are housed at Lowell Annex in Lowell, FL. M e a l s : Death Row inmates are served meals three times a day: at 5:00 am, from 10:30 am to 11:00 am and from 4:00 pm to 4:30 pm. Food is prepared by prison staff and transported in insulated carts to the cells. Inmates are given sporks with their meals and they eat from the provided tray. Prior to execution, an inmate may request a last meal. To avoid extravagance, the food to prepare the last meal must cost no more than $40 and must be purchased locally. S h o w e r s : The inmates may shower every other day. S e c u r i t y : Death Row inmates are counted at least once an hour. They are escorted in handcuffs and wear them everywhere except in their cells, the exercise yard and the shower. They are in their cells at all times except for medical reasons, exercise, social or legal visits or media interviews. When a death warrant is signed the inmate is put under Death Watch status and is allowed a legal and social phone call. M a i l M a g a z i n e s & E n t e r t a i n m e n t : Inmates may receive mail every day except holidays and weekends. They may have snacks, radios and 13 televisions in their cells. They do not have cable television or air-conditioning and they are not allowed to be with each other in a common room. They can watch church services on closed circuit television. While on Death Watch, inmates may have radios and televisions positioned outside their cell bars. C l o t h i n g : Death Row inmates can be distinguished from other inmates by their orange t-shirts. Their pants are the same blue colored pants worn by regular inmates. S t a t i s t i c s : The following statistics have been compiled from data collected since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976. For more information on the inmates on Floridas Death row, go to the Death Row Roster or the Execution List on the Department of Corrections website. These provide specific statistics on each inmate.

When an individual dies, the executor is faced with an important decision that has the potential to impact the taxes owed by the estate and its heirs. The executor will have the option of valuing the estate on the date of death, or on the six-month anniversary of death the Alternate Valuation Date. Pick a Date For estates with substantial holdings in stocks, the use of the Alternate Valuation Date may be an appropriate approach if the executor believes stock prices will be lower than they were on the date of death. It may seem like an obvious decision and simple choice, but its not. Heres why. If the executor selects the Alternate Valuation Date, it may have ramifications for the heirs. When heirs inherit assets, such as stocks, they may receive a step-up in the cost basis. (If the value of an asset is more than what it was when the original owner acquired it, the heirs received a step up in cost basis meaning the heirs valuation is reset when the death occurred.) Market Moves Lets take a look at a hypothetical example. Say Dad bought Out of Date Technologies at $10 per share several years ago. At his death, the stock is worth $35. The executor used the Alternate Valuation Date and due to market movements, six months later, the stock is worth $28. His daughter, Julie, will inherit this asset and receive a step-up in the cost basis to the value declared by the estate. Lets now assume that Julie sells the stock a short time later at $35. If the estate used the value on the date of death$35she might owe no capital gains taxes since she is selling the stock at the same price as her cost basis. But, since she received the stock with the lower cost basis$28 because the executor chose the Alternate Valuation Date, capital gains taxes on the $7 per share gain may be due. In this example, the estate saved money by electing the Alternate Valuation Date, but the heir was exposed to a lower cost basis and the prospect of paying higher capital gains tax in the future. Consider & Balance As the executor thinks through this balancing act, he or she should consider the relative prevailing tax rates for the estate and for the heirs to ascertain what approach may result in the most efficient transfer, net of taxes, to the heirs.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Heather Locke, Lt. Governor for District Three of Florida Kiwanis, visited the Kiwanis Club of Madison with a message of making a difference for the future. Part of her message was an update from Florida Kiwanis District Three Gov. Matthew Cantrall, outlining his Five Steps to Excellence plan for the 14 clubs in this district, and the other part contained kudos for what the Madison club was already accomplishing. For Step One, stop declining membership, Locke praised the club for having already taken several positive steps in this direction, including the recent Valentines Day Ball at the Senior Center. Club members and the general public gathered for what was part membership drive and part fun and festive way to get the Kiwanis name out in the community, meet new people and introduce them to what Kiwanis is all about. Step Two was to get rid of old projects that were no longer working, no longer raising the funds they used to, or no longer serving their original purpose, and replace them with new ones. Step Three was to not let the Service Leadership Programs become inactive, another thing Locke said the Madison Club already had a great handle on with its Key Clubs in local schools. Step Four, alleviating hunger in the community, also garnered words of praise from Locke. The Madison clubs months-long peanut butter and jelly drive has already delivered several hundreds of jars of PB&J to Consolidated Christian Ministries and other food pantries. The club has some other ongoing projects as well, that, while not directly related to hunger, nevertheless go toward meeting needs of low-income families in the community, such as the diaper drive. For several months, club members have been collecting packages of disposable diapers, and making deliveries to the Madison County Health Department, A Womans Pregnancy Center of Madison, and Healthy Start of Greenville. Step Five concerns the worldwide Project Eliminate, a global inoculation program of Kiwanis International that seeks to rid the world of maternal neonatal tetanus (MNT). MNT kills one baby every nine minutes, causing painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. Survival for both mother and baby is unlikely. Project Eliminate has eradicated the disease in 33 countries so far, but there are still 25 to go. Locke also had some definite goals in mind for all 14 clubs in District Three as a whole. Aside from building their membership, she hoped District Three would be able to reach a goal of 100,000 diapers collected and delivered by April 12. The district has already met one third of this goal, with a lot of help from the Madison Club. She also hopes for increased donations to Project Eliminate, to bring Kiwanis International that much closer to global eradication of MNT. Much of her message focused on service, and understanding how individuals can make a difference by learning to see the world differently. Something as seemingly small as changing ones viewpoint from time to go to work to time to make a difference was a great way to start. Change your words, change your world, she said. Be the difference-makers. Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Lynette Norris, February 20, 2014Heather Locke, Florida Kiwanis (District Three) Lt.

Submitted by Dan FennemanIn March of 2013, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Cattle Identification rules were implemented requiring all cattle 18 months old or older be identified for interstate (across state line) transportation. Beef cattle under 18 months of age, unless they are moved interstate for shows, exhibitions, rodeos, or recreational events, are exempt from the official identification requirement in this rule. The purpose of adult cattle and bison identification is simply to provide trace-back to the original owner, in the event of a serious animal disease outbreak, such as tuberculosis (TB), mad cow disease (BSE), or hoof and mouth disease. In response to the USDAs rule, states have been developing rules for cattle identification for intrastate (within state) transportation. Floridas cattle identification rule became effective on Feb. 19. The Cattle Identification Rule(s) (Chapter 5C-31, Florida Administrative Code) has been published with an effective date of Feb. 19. These rules are intended to improve the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Animal Industrys ability to respond to serious disease outbreaks and to help the industry maintain out-of-state markets. These rules will require cattle 18 months of age or older, entering the state and moving within the state, to be tagged with Official Identification. Cattle moving to Approved Tagging Sites for tagging, cattle moving directly to slaughter, and cattle moving between pastures under normal ranching operations are exempt under the rule. Approved Tagging Sites are livestock markets, stockyards and other locations that are authorized to apply Official Identification as a service to cattle owners. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is providing a period of continued education and outreach prior to commencing enforcement actions. They are planning to fully enforce this rule beginning April 7, 2014. At that time, eligible cattle moving within the state must be officially identified or the cattle will be quarantined until officially identified. Subsequent violations will result in administrative fines. The Madison County extension office in collaboration with Townsends Live Stock Market will be hosting an open discussion educational meeting concerning this new rule on Thursday, March 13, 2014 at Townsends Live Stock, 387 SE Bandit St. Madison. All interested parties are invited to attend. Hamburgers will be served starting at 5 p.m. with the meeting to follow.

The Florida Forest Service marked the occasion by helping plant 27 trees at the Madison County Central School. Trees were purchased with special funding provided by the Florida Forest Service. Second graders joined in on the fun by planting the trees and learning about the history of Arbor Day. Arbor Day is actually celebrated twice a year. Once on the last Friday in April for National Arbor Day and once on the third Friday in January (January 17) for Floridas State Arbor Day. The reason for each state having a separate State Arbor Day is to coincide with each states primary tree planting season. Some states, like Vermont, do not hold their State Arbor Day until May. Arbor Day is set aside as a day to promote planting trees and learning about their importance to our way of life and our very survival. Trees provide us with a variety of benefits including cleaner air, cleaner water, oxygen, many everyday commercial products, wildlife habitat, and recreational opportunities.

By Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc.If youve lived in Madison County for any length of time, you will have already heard about, seen, or eaten a Mrs. Leslies cake. The cakes are tall, due to their 10 layers, and covered in old-fashioned icings, that will have you reminiscing about your Grandmothers kitchen. The business was started by Audrey Leslie, a retired teacher, who began baking cakes from her home and selling them locally to people in the community. granddaughter Lynn Leslie-Hanners joined her Grandmother after her first son was born, around 1998, when she wanted an income that would allow her to stay home with her children. Hanners said her grandmothers cakes had grown into a fair little business, but with the help of family, Hanners cousin Amy Ratliff and sister-in-law, Kara Leslie, the little cake business has grown into sweet success for Mrs. Leslies. Shortly after Hanners joined the business, her grandmother stopped baking, but stayed busy by selling the cakes and talking with customers, which was something Hanners said she loved to do. The business was moved out of Mrs. Leslies home and into a shop built behind Hanners home, which she had licensed, enabling more cakes to be baked and sold. Mrs. Leslies cakes can now be found in eight different locations throughout Madison, Lake City, Perry, Valdosta, Lee and Pinetta. When selecting a Mrs. Leslies cake, you can choose from chocolate (their top seller), caramel, pineapple-cream cheese, lemoncheese, red velvet (Hanners favorite), coconut and mayhaw jelly (when in season). The cakes come on a board and wrapped in cellophane, ready to slice and eat. Hanners said they do not decorate any of their cakes because they stay so busy just making them that there would be no time to decorate, but it works out because this way their focus can remain on the cakes flavor. That said, the cakes would make great birthday cakes with the addition of candles or a grooms cake, topped with fruit or fresh, nontoxic flowers. With the current trend of confection and dessert bars at parties and wedding receptions, several flavors of cake would be welcome on a table nestled with other desserts. If you would like to order one of Mrs. Leslies cakes, you can call the shop at (850) 929-7568. To find out more about Mrs. Leslies cakes and business, visit their webpage atwww.mrslesliescakes.com or visit their Facebook page. After trying a slice, or two, of cake that Hanners said theyve not changed since her grandmother made them, you will agree these delicious cakes are Just like Grandma made them.BridalMadison Enterprise-Recorder 7 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, February 28, 2014 btnfr rbnnfrbnr Wedding Gowns Bridesmaid Dresses Flower Girl Dresses Mother-Of-The-Bride Prom Pageant Phone: (229) 386-1932Website: www.uniquelyyoursbridal.com121 North Central Avenue, Suite E Tifton, Georgia 31794 Mrs. Leslies Cakes: Old-Fashioned Flavor For Todays Special OccasionsPhoto SubmittedMrs. Leslies best-selling 10-layer, from scratch cake, chocolate.

For the offertory we sang Because He Lives. The worship choirs special was Revelation Song based on Revelation 5:12 saying with a loud voice: Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!' Bro Gabe continued his preaching from the Sermon on the Mount using Matthew 7:1-6 as his text. The word judge implies acting like a judge who pronounces condemnation. It does not do away with common sense or seeing wrong for wrong. Believers are to be judges in civil matters and will judge angels. However, because of Rom. 3:23 we have no right to condemn. The solution is not to just walk away, rather remove the plank from our own eye so we are able to see clearly to help restore others. Our time of worship included observing the ordinance of the Lord's supper.

SportsMadison Enterprise-Recorder 9 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, February 28, 2014" What Is A Sports Trainer And What Does He Do?" By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.Thats a good question, said Jake Pfeil, head trainer for the FSU Seminole Athletic Department. Pfiel, a graduate of Madison County High School who has also worked with the MCHS football and baseball teams before landing at FSU as the Associate Director of Sports Medicine, was the guest speaker at the Rotary Club of Madison, describing his role in the FSU athletic program. First of all, the proper term is certified athletic trainer, and it is a separate profession from personal trainer. It requires successful completion and graduation from a fouryear program in certified sports medicine, including sitting for all required exams. To work in college sports, add a masters degree to that list of requirements. While Pfeil was in school, he gained some needed experience working in Madisons football and baseball programs. He also went the route of summer internships, including a summer with the Atlanta Falcons. It was a great experience, he said of that summer. He was able to go back for two more summers after that and even do an entire season with the team in 2002. While working toward his goal, he met his wife, who is also an athletic trainer. Were lucky to be in the same town, with offices about 20 yards apart (on the FSU campus), he said. Still, a trainers day can be so busy that the two of them might not see each other all day, despite the close proximity of their workspaces. The sports training facility at FSU takes up 15,000 square feet and has 11 fulltime employees, along with a number of assistants and interns. Beyond the facility, there is a network of physicians, orthopedic surgeons, dentists and other health professionals who may be called on to treat a student athlete for any number of reasons. The facility takes care of about 130 football players, and 500 total student athletes. The general purpose of the facility and of sports medicine in general is the care, prevention and rehabilitation of athletic injuries, but it goes beyond that. Pfeil describes the facility as having all departments working together as one unit to push kids in the right direction and get them where they need to be professionally someday. That includes attention to their academics and nutrition, as well as the physical training. He also took issue with the dumb jock stereotype, saying that the student athletes he encountered were anything but. Athletic programs demand performance and the kids must keep up their grades in order to remain eligible, budgeting their time for classes, study, practice and play. If it was easy, we all wouldve done it, he said. With these kids, the academic pressure is on. The life of a trainer can be even more hectic. A typical day for Pfeil means rising at 6:30 a.m. and getting to the staff meeting with coach Jimbo Fisher at 7:30, where they go over the injury report and plan for the day. This is also when student athletes with any kind of illness or injury will come in. It is one of the first things they are taught when they come into the program if they wake up feeling ill or out of sorts for any reason, they immediately go to the facility and see a doctor to get whatever they need in the way of bandages, medicine or other treatment; this must be taken care of first thing in the morning before their first class; if they are deemed too ill or their injury too great to allow them to attend practice, then their coaches will be notified not to expect them. Seek treatment at once, is the policy. Do not stay home and stay in bed without telling anyone. In the ongoing quest of prevention and keeping the students healthy and getting them back to a state of health when they are hurt or sick, there is also the ongoing task of scheduling necessary appointments with any needed healthcare professionals in the network that regularly works with the FSU athletic department, and seeing that the students get to those appointments. By 2:15 p.m., students are coming in to get ready for practice. This means getting taped up and suited up for the football players, and then getting them out on the field for a twohour practice. 5:30 p.m. is the post-practice session, when any injuries are checked out and any ongoing treatments are administered. One might think that after the football season was over, things would settle down a bit, but this is actually one of the busiest times of the year for the athletic training department. This is the clean-up time when any season-long issues are addressed and any needed surgeries are scheduled. Prevention is also something the facility takes very seriously. All new recruits go through Pfiel and the team doctor. Physicals, medical histories and one-onone interviews with each student help spot any red flags, such as a biological parent who died suddenly before age 45. Are there cardiac problems that run in the family? If the athlete has a heart attack and dies on the practice field during a hot day, it is a liability for the school, said Pfiel, but its also a heartbreaking loss for the family. We even do genetic testing to look for possible problems, he said. Theyre somebodys kids. And that warrants taking every step possible to prevent a tragedy. There is also the drug testing policy and procedure, which he hates. Its a huge job, but it is required. The program randomly tests about five athletes a week throughout the year, but Pfeil says that the department wont get rid of a player for screwing up once. Instead, they get him or her into treatment or rehab. Were here to help people do the right thing and get them going in the right direction, he says. When the kids are caught with a positive drug test, treatment and rehab programs can usually help them get back on track. Usually. That doesnt always happen, he acknowledges. Sometimes, we have to let people go. Its another part of the job he is not fond of, but its something he does when he has to. The life of a college sports trainer is a busy one, charged with the responsibility for the health and well being of student athletes, getting them to perform at their peak while avoiding the pitfalls of lifelong injury, dealing with new recruits who have been treated like stars at their high schools and getting them to learn that new things will be expected of them, that this is what youre going to do, and were not the bad guys here. The field of sports medicine is also expanding beyond its former bounds of college and team sports. NASCAR now has a sports medicine program for its drivers. Major corporations who are getting into the area of health and fitness activities for their employees, to keep them energetic and productive, are now bringing in sports trainer programs to prevent or treat any injuries that might occur. The field is also expanding into health and fitness clinics for corporations, organizations and other non-traditional arenas as more people understand not only the need to be active and healthy but also the need to do so safely by understanding their bodies and listening to those who are trained to help them reach their goals. Its something for average coach potatoes to think about next time they tune in to watch their favorite team play ball. Greene Publishing, Inc.
