Florida Department of Education (FDOE) Commissioner Pam Stewart announced the decision last week, characterizing the new assessment — which replaces the FCAT 2.0 exams next spring — as a step forward. “The new assessment will measure each child’s progress and achievement on the Florida Standards, which were developed with an unprecedented amount of public input,” Steward is quoted saying. “This assessment supports our new standards, which emphasize exibility for teachers to make their own decisions in classrooms while preparing our children to analyze and think.” The announcement included the information that the state has entered a six-year, $220 million contract with the nonprot American Institute for Research (AIR) to develop the new test. In an accompanying open letter to parents dated March 17, Stewart describes the new standards as ”the detailed expectations of what every child should be able to do at each grade level.” “The new standards were developed with unprecedented input from Florida teachers, educators and the public,” Stewart writes. “It is an exciting step. The emphasis with these new standards is for your children to think critically and analytically and go beyond memorization. These new standards will help your child be prepared for success no matter what path they choose after graduation.” Stewart said the new assessment will include more than just multiple choice or simple ll-in-the-blank questions. She said students will be asked to create graphs, interact with test content and write and respond in different ways than on traditional tests. “New questions types will assess students’ higher order thinking skills in keeping with the higher expectations of the Florida Standards,” Stewart writes, adding that later this spring, samples of the new question types will be available for public review. She further states that the guidelines for promotion and graduation will largely remain unchanged, and students not achieving the new criteria will still be able to meet the promotion requirement through the same exemptions that currently exist. This latest development is seen as yet another step away from the controversial FCAT, which former Gov. Jeb Bush made the centerpiece of his Athrough-F school grading system and that is credited, for better or worse, with transforming the state’s public education system. The new test, yet to be named, will be Florida-specic, according to Stewart. Meaning that although it will largely be based on nationally developed standards, Florida ofcials have tweaked the math and English portions to appease critics of Common Core State Standards, which opponents decry the latter standards for a number of reasons, ranging from viewing them as awed, mediocre or unrealistic to being part of a federal conspiracy in the more extreme cases. Florida, in fact, was part of the national consortium that developed the Common Core State Standards. However, at the urging of Gov. Rick Scott and Republican legislators, Florida not long ago pulled out of the Partnership for Assessment of College and Career Readiness. Florida’s decision to select AIR to develop its tests is seen as another indication that it will not abide by the same test that other Common Core states will use. Interestingly, it’s reported that opponents of Common Core don’t necessarily see the newly announced standards as an improvement. “We can call itSee FCAT On Page 3 Madison County Contacts Governor About Valdosta Sewerage SpillsBy Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc. The communities of Madison, Suwannee and Hamilton have been dealing with sewage spillages for several years from Withlacoochee Wastewater Treatment Plant in Valdosta, Ga. Cindy Vees, Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, has sent a letter to Gov. Rick Scott on March 25, addressing the “long lasting negative economic impact” that this is having on the community of Madison. “This ongoing system has had, and will continue to have devastating economic impact on our local economy and tourism,” said Vees in her letter to the Governor. In this letter, Vees stated she knows “we can depend on the State of Florida to seek not only a solution to the problem, but economic restitution from the State of Georgia for the counties that are being affected.” According to the letter, over a million gallons of untreated wastewater has spilled into waterways that come through Madison County. On March 11, Allen Cherry, Madison County Coordinator, sent an email to Larry Hanson, Valdosta City Manager, requesting a synopsis of the spillage that occurred on February 22 and a timeline for the temporary construction that may help the spillage problem and the construction of the new sewer treatment facility. On March 12, Hanson responded to the email that the spillage issue was not a raw sewerage spill but a permit violation. “Full treatment was not completed to the permit requirement on total suspended solids,” said Hanson in the email to Cherry. On March 12, Hanson responded to the email that, in the past year, “the city has completed $2.5 million in short term repairs to the existing plant. Short of a regional flood event, we are optimistic that we will not experience a major raw sewerage spill.” According to the email that Hanson sent to Cherry, the City of Valdosta has two projects to complete the permanent solution. The first one will be to build a new force main system, which will replace the gravity-fed system. Along with the new system, the City of Valdosta will build two lift stations, which will be over 40 feet deep and will be replacing miles of lines that are in low laying areas. According to Hanson, the second project is constructing the new wastewater management plant and the City of Valdosta will select the team to design and build it in May. In the letter, Vees also addressed that “our tourism revenues do not meet the recent reported tourism trends by Visit Florida.” According to Vees, Visit Florida’s President and CEO, Will Seccombe, contacted her after receiving a copy of her letter, and thanked her for bringing it to their attention and wanted to know what Visit Florida could do to support Madison. Health Officials Weigh In Over Sewage SpillsBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Kim Albritton, Executive Director of the Madison County Health Department, and Bob Vincent Environmental Health Administrator of Water Programs, Florida Department of Health, addressed the County Commission at the March 26 meeting to update them on the condition of the Withlacoochee and Suwannee Rivers in the aftermath of recent sewage spills upriver in Valdosta. Heavy rains the previous week had overwhelmed the Valdosta stormwater and sewage drainage system, resulting in raw sewage being dumped into the river system March 19. Additionally, a broken underground sewage pipe March 26 resulted in spillage of treated efuent. Vincent updated the commission on reCindy Vees See Spill On Page 3Greene Publishing, Inc.

Ilistened during revival at my church this week as the guest preacher told about a time he was conducting a revival seven hours away from home. The next morning, his son would play his rst football game ever in a pee-wee league. The preacher drove the seven hours home and saw his son play his rst game and then drove back. The preacher has invested in his son with his resources and one of his resources is time. I remember, as a child, my parents did not have the money to buy us the best of everything but they willingly gave us the best things that they had time and love. Time and love was invested in each of us. If any of us were sick, our parents were there and though they had to take care of whoever was sick, they never neglected the others who were well. I realize as I grow older, that a lot of life's lessons that I have learned were from my parents investing time in me. Other lessons I have learned were when I invested time in reading and studying and practicing different things. Things take time to learn. My parents invested time teaching me. I invested time studying and practicing them. I am glad that there is always One who will take the time to listen when I need Him. He has invested the best that He had for me. He invested the Blood of His only Son, Jesus Christ. That investment pays dividends for Eternity. Now that your youth has organized their schedule and tweaked it to meet their needs, let us address the role of adults in these unique educational environments like virtual school, dual enrollment and home school. Adults need to stay involved without hindering the youth's self-management skills. These educational environments offer unique opportunities for youth to develop strong life skills such as stress management, time management, self-reliance, self-discipline, self-motivation, learning to learn, etc. Life skills are not innate; they are learned and developed over one's lifetime. Youth need influential adults to expose them to the beginnings of these life skills and inspire them to continually cultivate their skills. Set up a check-in time everyday that works with your work schedule. This demonstrates dedication to the youth and that you value what they are working on. It also requires them to "plan" you into their daily schedule and establishes a sense of accountability. Youth who have an adult that holds them accountable for their activities and actions are more likely to succeed in higher education and the workforce. During these sessions, have the youth give you a one to two minute update on each of their classes or activities on their schedule for the day. Connect this method to the workforce explaining that in most businesses employees are asked to give a brief update of their progress periodically and if they need any assistance from the other departments. Ask if they have any questions or concerns about the projects they are working on at that time. If they do and you do not have the resources at hand to address those concerns, be honest and suggest that they ask their advisor or teacher while you check with another knowledgeable adult. Give them a date and time you will follow up with them to make sure their concern was addressed. Once they have finished updating you with their current activities, have the youth give you a rundown of the next two weeks' schedule. This will help keep large projects and commitments fresh in the youth's mind as well as yours so you know when they haven't updated you on important activities. Finally, always end the accountability meeting with a positive comment. Demonstrate that you were listening and you are there to help them at any time. Youth who have a trustworthy, caring adult in their lives are more likely to seek assistance when they are in need of guidance. Becky V.

The Bible conrms in Luke 2ndchapter that a virgin woman named Mary was given the most preeminent task of all...that is to produce a Savior named Jesus to redeem mankind. Several millenniums later, the month of March was proclaimed as Women's History Month. Besides my own mother, Ruth Lawrence Hall, and my step-mother Emma Lou Mosley Hall, there are many other women who I believe should be acknowledged for the indelible impacts they've made upon mankind. Essentially, among them are these three: Fanny Crosby: born in 1820, her life spanned almost 95 years. Based on her biography featured on an earnestlycontending.com website, we learn that Mrs. Crosby was blind for all of her life, and was considered as one of the greatest hymn writers in the history of the Christian Church. She later wrote "And I shall see Him face to face, and tell the story -Saved by grace." She saw over 8,000 poems set to music and over 100,000,000 copies of her songs printed. Wow! Talk about a gifted woman. It has been said that on several occasions, upon hearing an unfamiliar hymn sung, she would inquire about the author, and nd it to be one of her own. Mrs. Fanny gave the world such songs as: A Shelter in the Time of Storm, All The Way My Savior Leads Me, Blessed Assurance, Close to Thee, I Am Thine O Lord, Jesus Is Calling, My Savior First of All, Near The Cross, Pass Me Not, Praise Him Praise Him, Safe InThe Arms of Jesus, To God Be The Glory, and Will Jesus Find Us Watching...to mention just a few. She also said, "when I go to Heaven, the rst face that shall ever gladden my sight will be that of my Savior." I must admit that as I joined in to sing some of her hymns while at church or at one of the Prince Hall Masonic Lodges, I thought the songs were ole negro spirituals. Actually, Mrs. Crosby was a very talented European American born in New York City. Fannie Lou Hamer: based on her biography located on the National Women's History Museum website, Mrs. Hamer was somebody! The web pages connote "Fannie Lou Hamer was born (youngest of 20 children) in Montgomery County, Mississippi in 1917. Forty seven years earlier, the 15thAmendment had given African-Americans the right to vote. In 1920, three years after her birth, the 19thamendment granted suffrage to American women. Yet, because of oppressive social circumstances, it wasn't until 1962 when she was 45 that Hamer learned that she had a right to vote as an American citizen. From that day, Hamer became a leader in the struggle for civil rights, social equality, and economic improvement for the AfricanAmerican community." It is important to note that she worked in the elds of a Mississippi plantation owner under very harsh conditions. Mrs. Hamer took on the responsibilities of house cleaner and plantation timekeeper because she was the only worker who could read and write. Moreover, in 1965, Hamer helped organize a strike of black cotton pickers. In 1969, she established a Farm Cooperative, "The Freedom Farm Cooperative of Sunower County," and a "pig bank" to provide free pigs for poor people to breed, raise, and slaughter. She also founded "Head Start in the Delta" and acquired federal funding for housing projects. In 1971, Hamer helped to found the National Women's Political Caucus. My, my what a magnanimous lady. Indra Nooyi: According to her biographical prole as listed on the Business Week web site, Ms. Nooyi has been the Chairman and Chief Executive Ofcer of PepsiCo since May 2007 and October 2006 respectively. She served as the President of PepsiCo since May 2001, its Chief Financial Ofcer and Senior Vice President since February 2000. In addition, she has served as its Senior Vice President of Strategic Planning, Corporate Strategy and Development from 1994 to 2000. Fortune Magazine currently ranks her as the second most powerful woman in Business in the world today. What does this have to do with me you might ask? Well, let me tell you that PepsiCo is a global food and beverage conglomerate that produces popular brands such as Quaker Oats oatmeal, Pepsi soft drinks, Doritos, Fritos, Gator-Aid, Cheetos and Tostitos. Anybody hungry? Well, after all that we have learned about the inconceivable contributions to our society that have been made by women from all walks of life, let us celebrate and cherish them. Certainly, our young musicians should be careful to no longer dinergrate them with disrespectful lyrics, but conversely honor and esteem them for making our planet a better place to call home. Rev. Gene Hall ghallboard@yahoo.com (850) 321-6673Let Us Celebrate Women The Right Way Letter To The Editor Jacobs Ladder Jacob BembryColumnist Conservative Corner Conservative Corner By Nelson A. Pryor, Lee, Florida Senate balks at Obama's pick for surgeon general post." That was the headline of a New York Times article on March 15, 2014. With the power of appointment, subject to Senate conrmation, President Obama is loading agencies with agitators with an agenda. This time, it's for Surgeon General. The nominee is Dr. Vivek H. Murthy, a man perched out on a limb. In a letter to senators last month, Chris W. Cox, the National Rie Association's political strategist, mentions Dr. Murthy's support for limits on ammunition purchases, a ban on "popular semiautomatic rearms," ammunition sales limits, and the removal of restrictions that keep the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from funding "antigun advocacy research." Mr. Cox also cited Dr. Murthy's calls for a federal gun buyback program and for mandatory safety training for gun owners. Most of the latter is already law. It's the bully pulpit that has the NRA concerned. Agitate and divide, that's the Saul Alenski way! And Obama knows it's either now for his agenda, or never. The surgeon general's ofce-which deals with policies of medicine and public healthis not usually a focus of gun-rights advocates. But an NRA spokesman, Andrew Arulanandam, said that it was taking no chances that under Dr. Murthy the ofce would veer into gun policy. "All the rules have changed as far as this White House in concerned," he said. "Given Dr. Murthy's blatant activism on behalf of gun control, that's not a gamble we're willing to take." The conrmation vote, by the full Senate, is expected shortly. It has just cleared the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, and is only waiting for Harry Reid, the Democrat Majority Leader, to schedule the vote. So far, Reid has had trouble nailing down ten Democrats on how they'll vote on the nomination. He is presently having trouble with Bill Nelson, of Florida. Letters and phone calls to his ofce might make the Senator come around to vote our State's interests. The NRA has said it will "score" any conrmation vote, meaning that voting yes would negatively affect a senator's annual rating from the group. This is not an idle concern for senators like Mark Begich of Alaska, who is up for reelection, along with Mary L. Landrieu of Louisiana, Mark Pryor of Arkansas and John Walsh of Montana-all Democrats who represent states where opposition from the NRA could mean the difference in a close race. The NRA has already begun gearing up to be a strong presence in congressional and governor's races. Since late last year, it has hired dozens of eld strategists to begin laying the groundwork for campaigns in politically competitive States. Obama should say to the nominee: Fix Obama Care! Lead the charge to get enrollment up! Let's do what we promised! Instead, the nominee's actions appear to indicate his instructions are: change the focus, divert attention, and start gathering up the guns! Senator Bill Nelson needs to know what you think.

A teacher in Sam Lang village, near Hanoi in northern Vietnam, lmed a man in swim trunks, carefully wrapping each child in a bag and then holding onto the top of the bag before wading neck deep into a raging river. After crossing to the other side, he unwraps the dry child and crosses back for more. The teacher, Tong Thi Minh, said the unusual transport is due to a nearby suspension bridge out of use because of heavy ooding. Girl Who Shaves Head To Support Friend With Cancer Not Allowed In School In Grand Junction, Colo., a girl who shaved her head in order to support her 11year-old friend battling cancer, was not allowed into her classroom for being in violation of the school's dress code. Caprock Academy President and Chair on the school's board of directors, Catherine Norton Breman said, "Caprock Academy does have a detailed dress code policy, which was created to promote safety, uniformity and a non-distracting environment for the school's students; under this policy, shaved heads are not permitted." Kamryn Renfro shaved her head to support friend, Delaney Clements, who is undergoing chemotherapy as part of her battle with neuroblastoma. Clements said, "It made me feel very special and that I'm not alone. It makes me sad because she was really happy to go back to school and show people what she did, but now that she didn't get to, she's kind of sad." Renfro said, "It felt like the right thing to do." Clements' mom, Wendy Campbell said, "I didn't realize that hair was such an important aspect of a child at school. For a little girl to be really brave and want to shave her head in support of her friend, I thought that was a huge statement and it builds character in a child." The academy's board of directors is meeting on Tuesday to discuss the situation.Corporal Rosenberg and Officer Johnson entered and searched the building. No one was discovered. Corporal Rosenberg noticed a Louisville Slugger TPS Fast Pitch softball bat on the walkway. It had marks and scratches on it. According to the Madison County Police report, the back door knob was hanging and appeared to be tampered with to gain entry but was not the entry point. According to Police Chief Gary Calhoun, a juvenile was question and released.

If the water does not clear up within 15 to 30 minutes, the resident should call Madison City Hall at (850) 973-5081. Fire Chief Bruce Jordan says the department flushes hydrants for many reasons: Flushing out the rust and debris that accumulates in the cities water system during the year that could cause potential problems. Flushing ensures that the hydrant is working properly and lets us know if there are problems in its operation; such as leaking, not opening or closing, etc. Flushing hydrants are required by the Insurance Services Organization (ISO) to maintain the fire department ISO rating. Florida standards," a spokesman for one of the opposition groups is quoted saying, "I call it putting lipstick on a pig." To date, 45 states, the District of Columbia, four territories and the Department of Defense have adopted and are moving forward with the Common Core State Standards, according to the ofcial site of the Common Core State Standards. The Common Core standards, the website states, were created after years of discussion between private nonprot groups and state education departments "to ensure that all students graduate from high school with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in college, career, and life, regardless of where they live." Common Core, the website states, aims to create uniform and consistent national academic standards to replace the current patchwork of uneven standards that vary from state to state and do not agree on what students should know or be able to do at each grade level. Common Core, the website states, dene the knowledge and skills that students should gain throughout their K-12 education in order to graduate high school and be prepared to succeed in entry-level careers, introductory academic college courses or workforce training programs. sults of lab samples tested by the Department of Environmental Protection in the wake of last week's spill, noting that some levels of fecal coliform in the Withlacoochee had exceeded the maximum allowable number of 800. A level of 200 is considered very good, and usually, the levels in the river hover around 100, according to routine monthly lab tests by DEP. "This particular (March 19) incident was bad because raw sewage rather than treated efuent spilled into the river," said Vincent, adding that Valdosta had a fouryear improvement plan in place. "Hopefully, we won't see many more of these, but that will depend on rainfall." When asked about more frequent testing, Albritton explained that the monthly tests were done by the state. "Occasionally, during times of emergency, we (the county) might have funds for testing, but not for day-to-day tests." Commissioner Rick Davis said that he had requests from the public to nd out more about the history of the river, and County Attorney Tommy Reeves asked if there was a printout of data that would show every time the river had exceeded the 800 mark. Vincent said there was a public, downloadable database, but that it was difcult to extract data and get it to "spit out what you wanted." "These incidents (spills) tend to clear out in a day or two," said Reeves. "So, we could have a tremendous incident and miss it completely." Epp Richardson of the Madison County Sheriff's Ofce, who lives in Pinetta, just below Valdosta, asked if any liability fell on Valdosta for a spill that effected its neighboring communities downriver, even if they were across a state line. "Anytime we have more than a two-inch rain, we have a sewage spill. Does somebody hold Valdosta responsible or do we just be forgiving for the next four years?" Homeowners could have their well water tested at a private lab nearby, but Richardson said that repeated testing was a nancial burden for some homeowners; meanwhile, they were scared to bathe their kids in the water without knowing for sure if it was contaminated or not. The Georgia Department of Environmental Protection had ned Valdosta once, but lifted the ne on the condition that the city put the money toward plant improvement. Reeves advised talking with Valdosta ofcials rst. "It's a big step to call the environmental folks on them without reaching out to them rst," he said. "Call the city manager rst and see what they're willing to do." The Georgia environmental agency probably would make any dollars ow south to Madison to cover testing anyway. "It's not normally done that way." Reeves then expressed a fear that, as Valdosta's switchover to its new plant began to take the front burner more and more, sewage spills at the old plant would take a back burner. "Should we take ofcial action? The rst step is, let's call Valdosta and see." After the meeting, Commissioner Rick Davis expressed frustration with the situation, and concerned that the 29-day window between routine DEP testing could miss a major event that would clear itself out in three or four days, and Madison would never know about it "unless we hear about it through the grapevine...this has happened time and time again," he said. "They can say 'sorry, we let a million gallons of sewage leak into the river,' and we just let it go. We can't really do anything." Cheerleading tryouts are coming up. There are two meetings that must be attended. The mandatory pre-tryout meeting is April 4 at 4 p.m. in the MCHS gym.

Funeral services will be friday, March 28 at 2 p.m., in the chapel of Beggs Funeral Home in Madison. Interment will follow at Mt. Horeb Cemetery. The family will receive friends one-hour prior to the service at the funeral home. Jim was born on December 19, 1942 in Madison. He was the oldest son of Doris Everett and the late Edward ”Mutt” Everett. He was a graduate of the University of Florida and an avid Florida Gator fan. Jim was an enthusiastic teacher who retired after 30plus years of teaching from the Duval County School System. He loved farming, woodworking, was a master gardner and an avid reader of all genres. He attended Macedonia Baptist Church and was active in his Sunday School class. He will be remembered as a kind and generous man who labored as a servant of Jesus. He will be greatly missed. He is survived by his wife of 45 years Sandra Tibbals Everett; two children: James T. Everett (Melissa) of Lancaster, Pa. and Sandy Elmer (Adam); seven grandchildren; Mekayla, Lincoln, Maverik, and Kinslee Everett and Hugh, Chris and Chase Elmer. Other family includes one brother, Bill Everett (Judy) of Defuniak Springs and four sisters; Ruth Rodgers (Bill) of Titusville, Libby Hutto (Buddy), Ann Olan (Phil) and Lynn Waller (Glenn) all of Madison County and many nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews. Beggs Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements (850) 9732258. You may send your condolences to the family by visiting our website at www.beggsfuneral.com. In general, when you sell your home any amount you receive over your cost basis (what you paid for the home, plus capital improvements, plus the costs of selling the home) is subject to capital gains taxes. However, if you owned and used the home as your principal residence for a total of two out of the five years before the sale (the two years do not have to be consecutive), you may be able to exclude from federal income tax up to $250,000 (up to $500,000 if youre married and file a joint return) of the capital gain when you sell your home. You can use this exclusion only once every two years, and the exclusion does not apply to vacation homes and pure investment properties. For example, Mr. and Mrs. Jones bought a home 20 years ago for $80,000. Theyve used it as their principal home ever since. This year, they sell the house for $765,000, realizing a capital gain of $613,000 ($765,000 selling price minus a $42,000 brokers fee, minus the original $80,000 purchase price, minus $30,000 worth of capital improvements theyve made over the years). The Joneses, who file jointly, and are in the 28% marginal tax bracket, can exclude $500,000 of capital gain realized on the sale of their home. Thus, their tax on the sale is only $16,950 ($613,000 gain minus the $500,000 exemption multiplied by the 15% long-term capital gains tax rate). What if you dont meet the twoout-of-five-years requirement? Or you used the capital gain exclusion within the past two years for a different principal residence? You may still qualify for a partial exemption, assuming that your home sale was due to a change in place of employment, health reasons, or certain other unforeseen circumstances. Special rules may apply in the following cases: €You sell vacant land adjacent to your residence €Your residence is owned by a trust €Your residence contained a home office or was otherwise used for business purposes €You rented part of your residence to tenants €You owned your residence jointly with an unmarried taxpayer €You sell your residence within two years of your spouses death €Youre a member of the uniformed services Stacy Bush, President Bush Wealth Management The Bush Wealth Advantage H o w D o I F i g u r e t h e T a x o n t h e S a l e o f M y H o m e ?

Workforce Is Now CareerSource North FloridaBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.The brand and the name have changed, to streamline identity across the state, but we're still the same people,” said Karen Hiers, Employer Services Coordinator for CareerSource North Florida. Formerly known as WorkForce of North Florida, the organization is part of a network across the region and state that matches jobseekers with employers who need the skills they offer, as well as providing worker training when needed. Workforce underwent the renaming and rebranding, because each location in different regions of the state had slightly different variations on the name “Workforce,” and each had its own particular logo. They were all part of the same organization, but with the different labels, it could be a little confusing. Hiers, who grew up in Moultrie, Ga., and worked in the human resources department of the local hospital until her husband was called into the ministry, was speaking to the Rotary Club of Madison about the free services CareerSource North Florida offers business men and women, as well as job seekers. “We're a not-forprot corporation,” she told the audience. “You pay for these services through your taxes, so take advantage of them.” CareerSource North Florida, with two ofce locations (Madison, at 705 E. Base Street, and Live Oak, at 815 N. Ohio Avenue) and two fullyequipped mobile units that offer everything the permanent ofce locations have, serves the six-county region that includes Madison, Jefferson, Hamilton, Lafayette, Suwannee and Taylor. Employees can seek jobs and employers can post job orders on the CareerSource website. It reduces the amount of trafc through the employer's ofce, and allows the employer to choose whom he or she would like to interview. It also gives the employee a good idea of what the position requires. “Even though we are a rural region, and the wages are not as high as in Orlando or Miami, there are more than just entry-level jobs,” said Hiers. They also offer training services for regular staff who need to upgrade their skills to keep up with technological leaps and bounds, as well as helping employers with positions that are hard to ll because they require special skill sets. CareerSource can help businesses come up with the training plans they need as well as assist with the training costs, reimbursing up to 90 percent of the employee's wages while training is ongoing. OTJ, or On-The-Job training is another option. There is also the Summer Youth Program, which places young people out in the business community during summer vacation, gaining valuable knowledge that could lead to permanent employment. There are interlocal agreements for jobseeker training in areas such as nursing and welding, areas with bright employment outlooks. In many cases, there may be training funding available for workers who are staying within the region. “This region is well-covered with employer services.” When matching jobseekers to employers, there are a couple of challenges here in this region, and one is education. In a primarily agricultural region, some jobseekers may have grown up working on a farm and spent their entire lives farming; a generation or two ago, high school diplomas or GEDs were not absolutely necessary for earning a living, so young workers then may not have completed their education. Then, because of one circumstance or another, farm work is no longer an option, but the workers still need to support themselves. There is a similar situation with older workers who may have retired, and then found that with ination and other economic factors, they don't have enough in their retirement accounts and so must reenter the work force. Again, they may not have much more than a high school education, and some may or may not have a diploma, because these may not have been required at the time, when hard work and willing hands were generally sufcient. With an older workforce in this situation, Hiers explained that, “we try to overcome that by selling 'lifetime knowledge' and the 'school of hard knocks' experience.” Another obstacle that Hiers sees a lot of is background. Jobseekers, who may have the skills and the education, will back off when they see that a background check is required, because they know they won't pass it. Most employers do require applicants to undergo a background check, and that's just the way it is. “We live in a rural area, so we are going to have education and background issues,” she said. “We need to get the message to high school kids and middle school kids, that the choices you make now will follow you the rest of your life.” For more information on CareerSource North Florida, and the services it offers as a one-stop career center for both employers and jobseekers, visit the website www.careersourcenorthorida.com or contact Hiers at CareerSource North Florida at (850) 973-429, or karen.hiers@careersourcenorthorida.com.

The chapter further wishes to thank the NFCC Student Center Staff, Security Staff, Taylor County Health Department, Rev. Ernest Raines and the Madison County community. Attendees had rave reviews about the dance and some even wanted to know when the next dance was going to be held. One attendee said his daughter had “such a good time, she’s ready to go again.” From tiaras to heels, glamour to glitz, all attendees were dazzling with several fathers and their daughters dressed in the same color scheme. The event, sponsored by Nu Omega Omega, was designed to provide the community with a memorable event that strengthened the family bond. The father/daughter dance is one of the chapter’s fundraisers, which will provide educational scholarships and support other community service projects. Chairpersons, Glenda Branch and Regina Glee Nash expressed this event was more than just a fundraiser, it was once again a celebration that is much needed in our community and one in which they wanted everyone to have a spectacular time. Chapter President Peggy Williams said she was extremely happy to see so many families represented. She invited attendees to be ready for next year.

GM Vehicles Beginning Feb 13, General Motors has recalled about 1.4 million vehicles in which the ignition switch can be jarred out of the “run” position, shutting off the car's electrical system and causing the engine to lose power. If the vehicle subsequently crashes, the air bags will not deploy. The models involved are: all 2005-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5; 2003-2007 Saturn Ion; 2006-2007 Chevrolet HHR; 2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit (Canada); 20062007 Pontiac Solstice; 2007 Pontiac Sky. GM mailed out letters to all owners of these vehicles on March 10, advising them to use only the key with nothing else attached to it, until the vehicles can be brought in and the switch replaced. The company advises that afterward, customers should still use only the key and key ring, with nothing else attached, as a safety precaution. Nissan Vehicles Nissan is recalling nearly one million cars because of a software fault that determines whether or not the passenger seat is occupied, and whether or not the airbag should deploy. The models affected are: 544,000 Altima sedans; 29,000 Leaf electric vehicles; 124,000 Pathnder SUVs; 183,000 Sentra compacts; 6,700 NV200 taxis. Over 100,000 Inniti models are also affected, including the 2013 JX35, the 2014 QX60 and the 2014 Q50 sedan. My Sweet Love Baby Doll Walmart has issued a recall of 174,000 My Sweet Love/My Sweet Baby Cuddle Care electronic baby dolls. The 16-inch doll, dressed in pink pajamas and equipped with a toy medical bag, coughs and babbles when it is “sick.” The problem is that the circuit board in the doll's chest overheats, enough to cause burns or blisters to children's ngers. The doll was sold at Walmart from August of 2012 through March of 2014. Customers should immediately return the dolls to any Walmart store for a full refund. By Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.April is Autism awareness month and was created to help “shine a light on Autism.” Always Support Kids (ASK) 4H club is asking everyone in Madison to “go blue” starting Wednesday, April 2, in order to raise awareness and promote acceptance of Autism. Autism is a developmental disability thought to appear in the first three years of life and affects the brain’s normal development of social and communication skills. Individuals affected usually have difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. Autism affects 1 in 88 children. Many of these children and adults are living in your community. ASK suggests Madison residents to “Light It Up Blue” by using blue light bulbs, blue ribbons, blue bows…they even suggest you paint your dog blue. The awareness runs through the entire month of April. If you would like to participate in this awareness, ASK leader, Michelle Register, says Studstills of Madison is stocked with plenty of blue light bulbs.

By Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.Iwill not eat them in a house, I will not eat them with a mouse, I will not eat them in a box, I will not eat them with a fox, I will not eat them here or there, I will not eat them anywhere….” Dr. Seuss. If you remember any of your childhood reading, you most likely recognize the above excerpt, taken from the Dr. Seuss book, “Green Eggs and Ham,” one of the most popular of his books written. Theodor Seuss Geisel was born in March of 1904 and a century later, his birth is still celebrated by millions of school children and is recognized as one of the top children’s books authors and illustrators of our time. The New Testament Christian Center in Madison has been celebrating Dr. Seuss all month long by reading selected books from the 44 children’s books he authored, working on craft projects such as Lorax masks and Cat in the Hat paper hats with their names, and decorations that adorn the classrooms, doors and halls in the school. Dr. Seuss wrote a total of 44 children’s books, which was translated into more than 15 languages around the world. The Cat in the Hat was the book that defined his career and according to New Testament teachers, is still the number one book among students.

Greenville Students Sing For Madison Nursing Center Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Lynette Norris, March 21, 2014Showtime! The children get ready for stories and songs with the Cat in the Hat.By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.When spring arrives, it's time to celebrate with song, and that's exactly what the pre-kindergarten children at Greenville Elementary did for the residents at the Madison Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. As soon as the school bus rolled up into the Center's parking lot, the children led into the activity room where the The Cat in the Hat (Cindy Pedicini, Director of Youth Services, Madison Library) waited with the residents who had gathered around to enjoy the show. Pedicini, who hosts “Story Time” at the library every Thursday morning from 10:30 – 11:30, was reprising her role as Dr. Seuss's famous feline from a few days prior, when she was at Greenville Elementary to help celebrate Dr. Seuss Day. Every day of the week, she visits a different school to make reading fun for the children with songs, interactive games, and puppets, as well as promoting good deeds with a variation of a “Good Deeds Tree” at each school. “It's not just about education,” she said. “It's about learning to be good people.” It's not just about singing, it's about bringing a song into people's hearts and a smile onto their faces. At the conclusion of their program, they presented the residents with a large poster card they had made, wishing everyone a happy spring.

By Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.North Florida Community College is an accredited college in Madison that offers associate degree programs and technical certicates for individuals seeking more than a high school diploma. Julie Townsend, the Allied Health Director for North Florida Community College (NFCC), oversees the daily functioning of the healthcare program at the Madison college, but also works to keep the school current on the healthcare education necessary for the community, such as the new Pharmacy Technician program. Townsend said the program recognized the need for this position in the community and they responded by lling the need with an educational program in order to cover that need. Other healthcare programs offered at NFCC are Associate Degree Registered Nursing, Practical Nursing Certicate (LPN), Patient Care Technicians Certication Program (PCT), Medical Administrative Specialist Certicate Program (MAS) and also new to the program this year a Licensed Practical Nurse to Associate Degree Registered Nursing (LPN to RN) Accelerated Bridge program, that will allow non-traditional students to continue working by only attending classes at the college part-time. Course work and clinicals aren't the only subjects students participate in while enrolled in healthcare classes at NFCC. "Not only do we teach students to be in healthcare leadership roles, but in community service roles," says Townsend. A current community project is underway and organized by ve NFCC LPN students. They are hosting a 5K run in Perry to benet Taylor County Deputy Robert Lundy who was shot in the line of duty at a Ford dealership. All proceeds from the run will go directly to Deputy Lundy and his family to help cover the cost of medical bills and other expenses. More community service from NFCC in April is a Health Expo, scheduled for April 4 and planned to include booths offering information on the following topics: Dexa Scan/Bone Density, Healthy Start, Abstinence, STD/HIV/Nutrition, Chronic Disease/Nutrition, Blood Pressure Screening, Tobacco Program, Fla. Department of Health Clinic Information, Fitness and Personal Health Information Management. Other involvement the college has with the community includes a partnership with Saint Leo University that works with the campus in order to accommodate students working toward a four-year degree. They also partner with doctor's ofces, long-term care facilities and major hospitals to allow NFCC students participation in clinicals, necessary for their education requirements. Technology at NFCC is an area where Townsend says they strive to stay current. The school's newest technological adventure is iPads and Surface Pro tablets that can be moved from classroom to classroom by individual students. A more fascinating technology used by the college, however, is the patient simulators. The high-delity simulators have come a long way from the androgynous "Annie" simulators used in CPR classes. The human replicas simulates real interaction between student and patient and allows healthcare students to practice procedures on the simulators, before working with real patients, or if no patient is available (such as a labor and delivery nurse, who needs practice with infant care, when no infant is available). The patient simulators have heart and abdominal sounds, lung function, voices, and have all available orices for students to practice IVs, taking blood pressure, NG tubes, catheters or delivering babies. Simulators come in all sizes, from infant to adult, leaving no procedure off-limits to the student. NFCC (and Florida) has been restricted to how much simulation schools can use, but new legislation is hoping to change that restriction. Although North Florida Community College offers quality healthcare education, they are diverse in other career education programs as well. The school offers associate in arts and associate in science degrees that cover business programs, digital and multimedia, ofce technology, public safety, early childhood education and administrative specialist. The campus also offers continuing education, workforce development, NFCC online high school along with the four-year degree program with Saint Leo mentioned above.

By Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc.In this past month, two ladies who attend the Senior Center in Greenville celebrated birthdays, with friends, food and of course, birthday cake. Betty Johnson was in the center’s kitchen, making sure there was lunch for all who attended, but was called from kitchen duty, so friends could sing “Happy Birthday” to her. After thanking everybody for the good wishes, Johnson was back to the kitchen, to help serve everyone lunch. Matilda Thomas was the other “birthday girl” and although her cake had already been cut and happy birthday wishes sang, she wanted to be able to give thanks in her own words, and here they are: Down through the years, God has been good to me. I have a living mother, Catherine Jinks, who, on Feb. 1, turned 98 years old. On Feb. 15, I turned 83 years old. To have a living mother at this stage of my life is a blessing. I also have 13 children, 40 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren. I am blessed to still be healthy and strong. I am able to take care of myself, grow my own vegetables, mow my yard and attend church regularly all while I take care of my grandson. I spend time helping the community. I volunteer for the Madison School District because education is key. Our youth needs a voice and I choose to speak. I have lived a full life, putting God first every step of the way. I look forward to watching my family grow and receive the blessings God has in store. I don’t drink or smoke. I feel great about myself and one day, I will meet the Creator of life in Heaven because He is first in my life.Greenville SpotlightMadison Enterprise-Recorder € 11 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, March 28, 2014 Crosswinds Health And Rehab Stirs Residents With LoveBy Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc.Jaime Mitchell, Activities Coordinator/Director at Crosswinds Health and Rehabilitation Center, stays active by working to keep the center’s residents moving. On a typical day, she moves from activity to activity while residents call out to her as she passes by. Mitchell says she strives to provide activities that meet the needs of all the residents, while respecting their desires and preferences. One of the things Mitchell is most proud of at the center is their sun-drenched outdoor courtyard that overlooks a pond and is complete with an enclosed porch, rocking chairs and ceiling fans. She said the rain showers late this winter brought gorgeous blooms and luscious green grasses the residents are able to enjoy this spring. When creating activities for residents, Jaime says Crosswinds has “fabulous residents” from a multitude of backgrounds that bring their own talents and experiences to the table. On a given day, residents might be sipping coffee at a coffee club, playing games or working puzzles, participating in arts and crafts, enjoying pet visits, listening to special musical guests, working out, having their hair styled or loading up to take part in an outing to the library or grocery store. Mitchell loves being where she is and says, “We have hardworking and talented dietary, housekeeping, maintenance, therapy and nursing teams, a kind-hearted social services director and a gifted administrator. There is a lot of love within these busy walls.”Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Rose Klein, March 26, 2014Jessie GrahamGreene Publishing, Inc.

Florida Department of Education (FDOE) Commissioner Pam Stewart announced the decision last week, characterizing the new assessment which replaces the FCAT 2.0 exams next spring as a step forward. The new assessment will measure each childs progress and achievement on the Florida Standards, which were developed with an unprecedented amount of public input, Steward is quoted saying. This assessment supports our new standards, which emphasize exibility for teachers to make their own decisions in classrooms while preparing our children to analyze and think. The announcement included the information that the state has entered a six-year, $220 million contract with the nonprot American Institute for Research (AIR) to develop the new test. In an accompanying open letter to parents dated March 17, Stewart describes the new standards as the detailed expectations of what every child should be able to do at each grade level. The new standards were developed with unprecedented input from Florida teachers, educators and the public, Stewart writes. It is an exciting step. The emphasis with these new standards is for your children to think critically and analytically and go beyond memorization. These new standards will help your child be prepared for success no matter what path they choose after graduation. Stewart said the new assessment will include more than just multiple choice or simple ll-in-the-blank questions. She said students will be asked to create graphs, interact with test content and write and respond in different ways than on traditional tests. New questions types will assess students higher order thinking skills in keeping with the higher expectations of the Florida Standards, Stewart writes, adding that later this spring, samples of the new question types will be available for public review. She further states that the guidelines for promotion and graduation will largely remain unchanged, and students not achieving the new criteria will still be able to meet the promotion requirement through the same exemptions that currently exist. This latest development is seen as yet another step away from the controversial FCAT, which former Gov. Jeb Bush made the centerpiece of his Athrough-F school grading system and that is credited, for better or worse, with transforming the states public education system. The new test, yet to be named, will be Florida-specic, according to Stewart. Meaning that although it will largely be based on nationally developed standards, Florida ofcials have tweaked the math and English portions to appease critics of Common Core State Standards, which opponents decry the latter standards for a number of reasons, ranging from viewing them as awed, mediocre or unrealistic to being part of a federal conspiracy in the more extreme cases. Florida, in fact, was part of the national consortium that developed the Common Core State Standards. However, at the urging of Gov. Rick Scott and Republican legislators, Florida not long ago pulled out of the Partnership for Assessment of College and Career Readiness. Floridas decision to select AIR to develop its tests is seen as another indication that it will not abide by the same test that other Common Core states will use. Interestingly, its reported that opponents of Common Core dont necessarily see the newly announced standards as an improvement. We can call itSee FCAT On Page 3 Madison County Contacts Governor About Valdosta Sewerage SpillsBy Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc. The communities of Madison, Suwannee and Hamilton have been dealing with sewage spillages for several years from Withlacoochee Wastewater Treatment Plant in Valdosta, Ga. Cindy Vees, Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, has sent a letter to Gov. Rick Scott on March 25, addressing the long lasting negative economic impact that this is having on the community of Madison. This ongoing system has had, and will continue to have devastating economic impact on our local economy and tourism, said Vees in her letter to the Governor. In this letter, Vees stated she knows we can depend on the State of Florida to seek not only a solution to the problem, but economic restitution from the State of Georgia for the counties that are being affected. According to the letter, over a million gallons of untreated wastewater has spilled into waterways that come through Madison County. On March 11, Allen Cherry, Madison County Coordinator, sent an email to Larry Hanson, Valdosta City Manager, requesting a synopsis of the spillage that occurred on February 22 and a timeline for the temporary construction that may help the spillage problem and the construction of the new sewer treatment facility. On March 12, Hanson responded to the email that the spillage issue was not a raw sewerage spill but a permit violation. Full treatment was not completed to the permit requirement on total suspended solids, said Hanson in the email to Cherry. On March 12, Hanson responded to the email that, in the past year, the city has completed $2.5 million in short term repairs to the existing plant. Short of a regional flood event, we are optimistic that we will not experience a major raw sewerage spill. According to the email that Hanson sent to Cherry, the City of Valdosta has two projects to complete the permanent solution. The first one will be to build a new force main system, which will replace the gravity-fed system. Along with the new system, the City of Valdosta will build two lift stations, which will be over 40 feet deep and will be replacing miles of lines that are in low laying areas. According to Hanson, the second project is constructing the new wastewater management plant and the City of Valdosta will select the team to design and build it in May. In the letter, Vees also addressed that our tourism revenues do not meet the recent reported tourism trends by Visit Florida. According to Vees, Visit Floridas President and CEO, Will Seccombe, contacted her after receiving a copy of her letter, and thanked her for bringing it to their attention and wanted to know what Visit Florida could do to support Madison. Health Officials Weigh In Over Sewage SpillsBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Kim Albritton, Executive Director of the Madison County Health Department, and Bob Vincent Environmental Health Administrator of Water Programs, Florida Department of Health, addressed the County Commission at the March 26 meeting to update them on the condition of the Withlacoochee and Suwannee Rivers in the aftermath of recent sewage spills upriver in Valdosta.

Ilistened during revival at my church this week as the guest preacher told about a time he was conducting a revival seven hours away from home. The next morning, his son would play his rst football game ever in a pee-wee league. The preacher drove the seven hours home and saw his son play his rst game and then drove back. The preacher has invested in his son with his resources and one of his resources is time. I remember, as a child, my parents did not have the money to buy us the best of everything but they willingly gave us the best things that they had time and love. Time and love was invested in each of us. If any of us were sick, our parents were there and though they had to take care of whoever was sick, they never neglected the others who were well. I realize as I grow older, that a lot of life's lessons that I have learned were from my parents investing time in me. Other lessons I have learned were when I invested time in reading and studying and practicing different things. Things take time to learn. My parents invested time teaching me. I invested time studying and practicing them. I am glad that there is always One who will take the time to listen when I need Him. He has invested the best that He had for me. He invested the Blood of His only Son, Jesus Christ. That investment pays dividends for Eternity. Now that your youth has organized their schedule and tweaked it to meet their needs, let us address the role of adults in these unique educational environments like virtual school, dual enrollment and home school. Adults need to stay involved without hindering the youths self-management skills. These educational environments offer unique opportunities for youth to develop strong life skills such as stress management, time management, self-reliance, self-discipline, self-motivation, learning to learn, etc. Life skills are not innate; they are learned and developed over ones lifetime. Youth need influential adults to expose them to the beginnings of these life skills and inspire them to continually cultivate their skills. Set up a check-in time everyday that works with your work schedule. This demonstrates dedication to the youth and that you value what they are working on. It also requires them to plan you into their daily schedule and establishes a sense of accountability. Youth who have an adult that holds them accountable for their activities and actions are more likely to succeed in higher education and the workforce. During these sessions, have the youth give you a one to two minute update on each of their classes or activities on their schedule for the day. Connect this method to the workforce explaining that in most businesses employees are asked to give a brief update of their progress periodically and if they need any assistance from the other departments. Ask if they have any questions or concerns about the projects they are working on at that time. If they do and you do not have the resources at hand to address those concerns, be honest and suggest that they ask their advisor or teacher while you check with another knowledgeable adult. Give them a date and time you will follow up with them to make sure their concern was addressed. Once they have finished updating you with their current activities, have the youth give you a rundown of the next two weeks schedule. This will help keep large projects and commitments fresh in the youths mind as well as yours so you know when they havent updated you on important activities. Finally, always end the accountability meeting with a positive comment. Demonstrate that you were listening and you are there to help them at any time. Youth who have a trustworthy, caring adult in their lives are more likely to seek assistance when they are in need of guidance. Becky V.

The Bible conrms in Luke 2ndchapter that a virgin woman named Mary was given the most preeminent task of all...that is to produce a Savior named Jesus to redeem mankind. Several millenniums later, the month of March was proclaimed as Womens History Month. Besides my own mother, Ruth Lawrence Hall, and my step-mother Emma Lou Mosley Hall, there are many other women who I believe should be acknowledged for the indelible impacts theyve made upon mankind. Essentially, among them are these three: Fanny Crosby: born in 1820, her life spanned almost 95 years. Based on her biography featured on an earnestlycontending.com website, we learn that Mrs. Crosby was blind for all of her life, and was considered as one of the greatest hymn writers in the history of the Christian Church. She later wrote And I shall see Him face to face, and tell the story -Saved by grace. She saw over 8,000 poems set to music and over 100,000,000 copies of her songs printed. Wow! Talk about a gifted woman. It has been said that on several occasions, upon hearing an unfamiliar hymn sung, she would inquire about the author, and nd it to be one of her own. Mrs. Fanny gave the world such songs as: A Shelter in the Time of Storm, All The Way My Savior Leads Me, Blessed Assurance, Close to Thee, I Am Thine O Lord, Jesus Is Calling, My Savior First of All, Near The Cross, Pass Me Not, Praise Him Praise Him, Safe InThe Arms of Jesus, To God Be The Glory, and Will Jesus Find Us Watching...to mention just a few. She also said, when I go to Heaven, the rst face that shall ever gladden my sight will be that of my Savior. I must admit that as I joined in to sing some of her hymns while at church or at one of the Prince Hall Masonic Lodges, I thought the songs were ole negro spirituals. Actually, Mrs. Crosby was a very talented European American born in New York City. Fannie Lou Hamer: based on her biography located on the National Womens History Museum website, Mrs. Hamer was somebody! The web pages connote Fannie Lou Hamer was born (youngest of 20 children) in Montgomery County, Mississippi in 1917. Forty seven years earlier, the 15thAmendment had given African-Americans the right to vote. In 1920, three years after her birth, the 19thamendment granted suffrage to American women. Yet, because of oppressive social circumstances, it wasnt until 1962 when she was 45 that Hamer learned that she had a right to vote as an American citizen. From that day, Hamer became a leader in the struggle for civil rights, social equality, and economic improvement for the AfricanAmerican community. It is important to note that she worked in the elds of a Mississippi plantation owner under very harsh conditions. Mrs. Hamer took on the responsibilities of house cleaner and plantation timekeeper because she was the only worker who could read and write. Moreover, in 1965, Hamer helped organize a strike of black cotton pickers. In 1969, she established a Farm Cooperative, The Freedom Farm Cooperative of Sunower County, and a pig bank to provide free pigs for poor people to breed, raise, and slaughter. She also founded Head Start in the Delta and acquired federal funding for housing projects. In 1971, Hamer helped to found the National Womens Political Caucus. My, my what a magnanimous lady. Indra Nooyi: According to her biographical prole as listed on the Business Week web site, Ms. Nooyi has been the Chairman and Chief Executive Ofcer of PepsiCo since May 2007 and October 2006 respectively. She served as the President of PepsiCo since May 2001, its Chief Financial Ofcer and Senior Vice President since February 2000. In addition, she has served as its Senior Vice President of Strategic Planning, Corporate Strategy and Development from 1994 to 2000. Fortune Magazine currently ranks her as the second most powerful woman in Business in the world today. What does this have to do with me you might ask? Well, let me tell you that PepsiCo is a global food and beverage conglomerate that produces popular brands such as Quaker Oats oatmeal, Pepsi soft drinks, Doritos, Fritos, Gator-Aid, Cheetos and Tostitos. Anybody hungry? Well, after all that we have learned about the inconceivable contributions to our society that have been made by women from all walks of life, let us celebrate and cherish them. Certainly, our young musicians should be careful to no longer dinergrate them with disrespectful lyrics, but conversely honor and esteem them for making our planet a better place to call home. Rev. Gene Hall ghallboard@yahoo.com (850) 321-6673Let Us Celebrate Women The Right Way Letter To The Editor Jacobs Ladder Jacob BembryColumnist Conservative Corner Conservative CornerBy Nelson A. Pryor, Lee, Florida Senate balks at Obama's pick for surgeon general post. That was the headline of a New York Times article on March 15, 2014. With the power of appointment, subject to Senate conrmation, President Obama is loading agencies with agitators with an agenda. This time, its for Surgeon General. The nominee is Dr. Vivek H. Murthy, a man perched out on a limb. In a letter to senators last month, Chris W. Cox, the National Rie Associations political strategist, mentions Dr. Murthys support for limits on ammunition purchases, a ban on popular semiautomatic rearms, ammunition sales limits, and the removal of restrictions that keep the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from funding antigun advocacy research. Mr. Cox also cited Dr. Murthys calls for a federal gun buyback program and for mandatory safety training for gun owners. Most of the latter is already law. Its the bully pulpit that has the NRA concerned. Agitate and divide, thats the Saul Alenski way! And Obama knows its either now for his agenda, or never. The surgeon generals ofce-which deals with policies of medicine and public healthis not usually a focus of gun-rights advocates. But an NRA spokesman, Andrew Arulanandam, said that it was taking no chances that under Dr. Murthy the ofce would veer into gun policy. All the rules have changed as far as this White House in concerned, he said. Given Dr. Murthys blatant activism on behalf of gun control, thats not a gamble were willing to take. The conrmation vote, by the full Senate, is expected shortly. It has just cleared the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, and is only waiting for Harry Reid, the Democrat Majority Leader, to schedule the vote. So far, Reid has had trouble nailing down ten Democrats on how theyll vote on the nomination. He is presently having trouble with Bill Nelson, of Florida. Letters and phone calls to his ofce might make the Senator come around to vote our States interests. The NRA has said it will score any conrmation vote, meaning that voting yes would negatively affect a senators annual rating from the group. This is not an idle concern for senators like Mark Begich of Alaska, who is up for reelection, along with Mary L. Landrieu of Louisiana, Mark Pryor of Arkansas and John Walsh of Montana-all Democrats who represent states where opposition from the NRA could mean the difference in a close race. The NRA has already begun gearing up to be a strong presence in congressional and governors races. Since late last year, it has hired dozens of eld strategists to begin laying the groundwork for campaigns in politically competitive States. Obama should say to the nominee: Fix Obama Care! Lead the charge to get enrollment up! Lets do what we promised! Instead, the nominees actions appear to indicate his instructions are: change the focus, divert attention, and start gathering up the guns! Senator Bill Nelson needs to know what you think.

A teacher in Sam Lang village, near Hanoi in northern Vietnam, lmed a man in swim trunks, carefully wrapping each child in a bag and then holding onto the top of the bag before wading neck deep into a raging river. After crossing to the other side, he unwraps the dry child and crosses back for more. The teacher, Tong Thi Minh, said the unusual transport is due to a nearby suspension bridge out of use because of heavy ooding. Girl Who Shaves Head To Support Friend With Cancer Not Allowed In School In Grand Junction, Colo., a girl who shaved her head in order to support her 11year-old friend battling cancer, was not allowed into her classroom for being in violation of the schools dress code. Caprock Academy President and Chair on the schools board of directors, Catherine Norton Breman said, Caprock Academy does have a detailed dress code policy, which was created to promote safety, uniformity and a non-distracting environment for the schools students; under this policy, shaved heads are not permitted. Kamryn Renfro shaved her head to support friend, Delaney Clements, who is undergoing chemotherapy as part of her battle with neuroblastoma. Clements said, It made me feel very special and that Im not alone. It makes me sad because she was really happy to go back to school and show people what she did, but now that she didnt get to, shes kind of sad. Renfro said, It felt like the right thing to do. Clements mom, Wendy Campbell said, I didnt realize that hair was such an important aspect of a child at school. For a little girl to be really brave and want to shave her head in support of her friend, I thought that was a huge statement and it builds character in a child.

Fire Chief Bruce Jordan says the department flushes hydrants for many reasons: Flushing out the rust and debris that accumulates in the cities water system during the year that could cause potential problems. Flushing ensures that the hydrant is working properly and lets us know if there are problems in its operation; such as leaking, not opening or closing, etc. Flushing hydrants are required by the Insurance Services Organization (ISO) to maintain the fire department ISO rating. Florida standards, a spokesman for one of the opposition groups is quoted saying, I call it putting lipstick on a pig. To date, 45 states, the District of Columbia, four territories and the Department of Defense have adopted and are moving forward with the Common Core State Standards, according to the ofcial site of the Common Core State Standards. The Common Core standards, the website states, were created after years of discussion between private nonprot groups and state education departments to ensure that all students graduate from high school with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in college, career, and life, regardless of where they live. Common Core, the website states, aims to create uniform and consistent national academic standards to replace the current patchwork of uneven standards that vary from state to state and do not agree on what students should know or be able to do at each grade level. Common Core, the website states, dene the knowledge and skills that students should gain throughout their K-12 education in order to graduate high school and be prepared to succeed in entry-level careers, introductory academic college courses or workforce training programs. sults of lab samples tested by the Department of Environmental Protection in the wake of last week's spill, noting that some levels of fecal coliform in the Withlacoochee had exceeded the maximum allowable number of 800. A level of 200 is considered very good, and usually, the levels in the river hover around 100, according to routine monthly lab tests by DEP. This particular (March 19) incident was bad because raw sewage rather than treated efuent spilled into the river, said Vincent, adding that Valdosta had a fouryear improvement plan in place. Hopefully, we won't see many more of these, but that will depend on rainfall. When asked about more frequent testing, Albritton explained that the monthly tests were done by the state. Occasionally, during times of emergency, we (the county) might have funds for testing, but not for day-to-day tests. Commissioner Rick Davis said that he had requests from the public to nd out more about the history of the river, and County Attorney Tommy Reeves asked if there was a printout of data that would show every time the river had exceeded the 800 mark. Vincent said there was a public, downloadable database, but that it was difcult to extract data and get it to spit out what you wanted. These incidents (spills) tend to clear out in a day or two, said Reeves. So, we could have a tremendous incident and miss it completely. Epp Richardson of the Madison County Sheriff's Ofce, who lives in Pinetta, just below Valdosta, asked if any liability fell on Valdosta for a spill that effected its neighboring communities downriver, even if they were across a state line. Anytime we have more than a two-inch rain, we have a sewage spill. Does somebody hold Valdosta responsible or do we just be forgiving for the next four years? Homeowners could have their well water tested at a private lab nearby, but Richardson said that repeated testing was a nancial burden for some homeowners; meanwhile, they were scared to bathe their kids in the water without knowing for sure if it was contaminated or not. The Georgia Department of Environmental Protection had ned Valdosta once, but lifted the ne on the condition that the city put the money toward plant improvement. Reeves advised talking with Valdosta ofcials rst. It's a big step to call the environmental folks on them without reaching out to them rst, he said. Call the city manager rst and see what they're willing to do. The Georgia environmental agency probably would make any dollars ow south to Madison to cover testing anyway. It's not normally done that way. Reeves then expressed a fear that, as Valdosta's switchover to its new plant began to take the front burner more and more, sewage spills at the old plant would take a back burner. Should we take ofcial action? The rst step is, let's call Valdosta and see. After the meeting, Commissioner Rick Davis expressed frustration with the situation, and concerned that the 29-day window between routine DEP testing could miss a major event that would clear itself out in three or four days, and Madison would never know about it unless we hear about it through the grapevine...this has happened time and time again, he said. They can say 'sorry, we let a million gallons of sewage leak into the river,' and we just let it go. We can't really do anything. Cheerleading tryouts are coming up.

Funeral services will be friday, March 28 at 2 p.m., in the chapel of Beggs Funeral Home in Madison. Interment will follow at Mt. Horeb Cemetery. The family will receive friends one-hour prior to the service at the funeral home. Jim was born on December 19, 1942 in Madison. He was the oldest son of Doris Everett and the late Edward Mutt Everett. He was a graduate of the University of Florida and an avid Florida Gator fan. Jim was an enthusiastic teacher who retired after 30plus years of teaching from the Duval County School System. He loved farming, woodworking, was a master gardner and an avid reader of all genres. He attended Macedonia Baptist Church and was active in his Sunday School class. He will be remembered as a kind and generous man who labored as a servant of Jesus. He will be greatly missed. He is survived by his wife of 45 years Sandra Tibbals Everett; two children: James T. Everett (Melissa) of Lancaster, Pa. and Sandy Elmer (Adam); seven grandchildren; Mekayla, Lincoln, Maverik, and Kinslee Everett and Hugh, Chris and Chase Elmer. Other family includes one brother, Bill Everett (Judy) of Defuniak Springs and four sisters; Ruth Rodgers (Bill) of Titusville, Libby Hutto (Buddy), Ann Olan (Phil) and Lynn Waller (Glenn) all of Madison County and many nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews. Beggs Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements (850) 9732258. You may send your condolences to the family by visiting our website at www.beggsfuneral.com. In general, when you sell your home any amount you receive over your cost basis (what you paid for the home, plus capital improvements, plus the costs of selling the home) is subject to capital gains taxes. However, if you owned and used the home as your principal residence for a total of two out of the five years before the sale (the two years do not have to be consecutive), you may be able to exclude from federal income tax up to $250,000 (up to $500,000 if youre married and file a joint return) of the capital gain when you sell your home. You can use this exclusion only once every two years, and the exclusion does not apply to vacation homes and pure investment properties. For example, Mr. and Mrs. Jones bought a home 20 years ago for $80,000. Theyve used it as their principal home ever since. This year, they sell the house for $765,000, realizing a capital gain of $613,000 ($765,000 selling price minus a $42,000 brokers fee, minus the original $80,000 purchase price, minus $30,000 worth of capital improvements theyve made over the years). The Joneses, who file jointly, and are in the 28% marginal tax bracket, can exclude $500,000 of capital gain realized on the sale of their home. Thus, their tax on the sale is only $16,950 ($613,000 gain minus the $500,000 exemption multiplied by the 15% long-term capital gains tax rate). What if you dont meet the twoout-of-five-years requirement? Or you used the capital gain exclusion within the past two years for a different principal residence? You may still qualify for a partial exemption, assuming that your home sale was due to a change in place of employment, health reasons, or certain other unforeseen circumstances. Special rules may apply in the following cases: You sell vacant land adjacent to your residence Your residence is owned by a trust Your residence contained a home office or was otherwise used for business purposes You rented part of your residence to tenants You owned your residence jointly with an unmarried taxpayer You sell your residence within two years of your spouses death Youre a member of the uniformed services Stacy Bush, President Bush Wealth Management The Bush Wealth Advantage How Do I Figure the Tax on the Sale of My Home?

Workforce Is Now CareerSource North FloridaBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.The brand and the name have changed, to streamline identity across the state, but we're still the same people, said Karen Hiers, Employer Services Coordinator for CareerSource North Florida. Formerly known as WorkForce of North Florida, the organization is part of a network across the region and state that matches jobseekers with employers who need the skills they offer, as well as providing worker training when needed. Workforce underwent the renaming and rebranding, because each location in different regions of the state had slightly different variations on the name Workforce, and each had its own particular logo. They were all part of the same organization, but with the different labels, it could be a little confusing. Hiers, who grew up in Moultrie, Ga., and worked in the human resources department of the local hospital until her husband was called into the ministry, was speaking to the Rotary Club of Madison about the free services CareerSource North Florida offers business men and women, as well as job seekers. We're a not-forprot corporation, she told the audience. You pay for these services through your taxes, so take advantage of them. CareerSource North Florida, with two ofce locations (Madison, at 705 E. Base Street, and Live Oak, at 815 N. Ohio Avenue) and two fullyequipped mobile units that offer everything the permanent ofce locations have, serves the six-county region that includes Madison, Jefferson, Hamilton, Lafayette, Suwannee and Taylor. Employees can seek jobs and employers can post job orders on the CareerSource website. It reduces the amount of trafc through the employer's ofce, and allows the employer to choose whom he or she would like to interview. It also gives the employee a good idea of what the position requires. Even though we are a rural region, and the wages are not as high as in Orlando or Miami, there are more than just entry-level jobs, said Hiers. They also offer training services for regular staff who need to upgrade their skills to keep up with technological leaps and bounds, as well as helping employers with positions that are hard to ll because they require special skill sets. CareerSource can help businesses come up with the training plans they need as well as assist with the training costs, reimbursing up to 90 percent of the employee's wages while training is ongoing. OTJ, or On-The-Job training is another option. There is also the Summer Youth Program, which places young people out in the business community during summer vacation, gaining valuable knowledge that could lead to permanent employment. There are interlocal agreements for jobseeker training in areas such as nursing and welding, areas with bright employment outlooks. In many cases, there may be training funding available for workers who are staying within the region. This region is well-covered with employer services. When matching jobseekers to employers, there are a couple of challenges here in this region, and one is education. In a primarily agricultural region, some jobseekers may have grown up working on a farm and spent their entire lives farming; a generation or two ago, high school diplomas or GEDs were not absolutely necessary for earning a living, so young workers then may not have completed their education. Then, because of one circumstance or another, farm work is no longer an option, but the workers still need to support themselves. There is a similar situation with older workers who may have retired, and then found that with ination and other economic factors, they don't have enough in their retirement accounts and so must reenter the work force. Again, they may not have much more than a high school education, and some may or may not have a diploma, because these may not have been required at the time, when hard work and willing hands were generally sufcient. With an older workforce in this situation, Hiers explained that, we try to overcome that by selling 'lifetime knowledge' and the 'school of hard knocks' experience. Another obstacle that Hiers sees a lot of is background. Jobseekers, who may have the skills and the education, will back off when they see that a background check is required, because they know they won't pass it. Most employers do require applicants to undergo a background check, and that's just the way it is. We live in a rural area, so we are going to have education and background issues, she said. We need to get the message to high school kids and middle school kids, that the choices you make now will follow you the rest of your life.

GM Vehicles Beginning Feb 13, General Motors has recalled about 1.4 million vehicles in which the ignition switch can be jarred out of the run position, shutting off the car's electrical system and causing the engine to lose power. If the vehicle subsequently crashes, the air bags will not deploy. The models involved are: all 2005-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5; 2003-2007 Saturn Ion; 2006-2007 Chevrolet HHR; 2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit (Canada); 20062007 Pontiac Solstice; 2007 Pontiac Sky. GM mailed out letters to all owners of these vehicles on March 10, advising them to use only the key with nothing else attached to it, until the vehicles can be brought in and the switch replaced. The company advises that afterward, customers should still use only the key and key ring, with nothing else attached, as a safety precaution. Nissan Vehicles Nissan is recalling nearly one million cars because of a software fault that determines whether or not the passenger seat is occupied, and whether or not the airbag should deploy. The models affected are: 544,000 Altima sedans; 29,000 Leaf electric vehicles; 124,000 Pathnder SUVs; 183,000 Sentra compacts; 6,700 NV200 taxis. Over 100,000 Inniti models are also affected, including the 2013 JX35, the 2014 QX60 and the 2014 Q50 sedan. My Sweet Love Baby Doll Walmart has issued a recall of 174,000 My Sweet Love/My Sweet Baby Cuddle Care electronic baby dolls. The 16-inch doll, dressed in pink pajamas and equipped with a toy medical bag, coughs and babbles when it is sick. The problem is that the circuit board in the doll's chest overheats, enough to cause burns or blisters to children's ngers. The doll was sold at Walmart from August of 2012 through March of 2014. Customers should immediately return the dolls to any Walmart store for a full refund.

Dr. Seuss. If you remember any of your childhood reading, you most likely recognize the above excerpt, taken from the Dr. Seuss book, Green Eggs and Ham, one of the most popular of his books written. Theodor Seuss Geisel was born in March of 1904 and a century later, his birth is still celebrated by millions of school children and is recognized as one of the top childrens books authors and illustrators of our time. The New Testament Christian Center in Madison has been celebrating Dr. Seuss all month long by reading selected books from the 44 childrens books he authored, working on craft projects such as Lorax masks and Cat in the Hat paper hats with their names, and decorations that adorn the classrooms, doors and halls in the school. Dr. Seuss wrote a total of 44 childrens books, which was translated into more than 15 languages around the world. The Cat in the Hat was the book that defined his career and according to New Testament teachers, is still the number one book among students.

Greenville Students Sing For Madison Nursing Center Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Lynette Norris, March 21, 2014Showtime! The children get ready for stories and songs with the Cat in the Hat.By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.When spring arrives, it's time to celebrate with song, and that's exactly what the pre-kindergarten children at Greenville Elementary did for the residents at the Madison Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. As soon as the school bus rolled up into the Center's parking lot, the children led into the activity room where the The Cat in the Hat (Cindy Pedicini, Director of Youth Services, Madison Library) waited with the residents who had gathered around to enjoy the show. Pedicini, who hosts Story Time at the library every Thursday morning from 10:30 11:30, was reprising her role as Dr. Seuss's famous feline from a few days prior, when she was at Greenville Elementary to help celebrate Dr. Seuss Day. Every day of the week, she visits a different school to make reading fun for the children with songs, interactive games, and puppets, as well as promoting good deeds with a variation of a Good Deeds Tree at each school. It's not just about education, she said. It's about learning to be good people. It's not just about singing, it's about bringing a song into people's hearts and a smile onto their faces. At the conclusion of their program, they presented the residents with a large poster card they had made, wishing everyone a happy spring.

By Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.North Florida Community College is an accredited college in Madison that offers associate degree programs and technical certicates for individuals seeking more than a high school diploma. Julie Townsend, the Allied Health Director for North Florida Community College (NFCC), oversees the daily functioning of the healthcare program at the Madison college, but also works to keep the school current on the healthcare education necessary for the community, such as the new Pharmacy Technician program. Townsend said the program recognized the need for this position in the community and they responded by lling the need with an educational program in order to cover that need. Other healthcare programs offered at NFCC are Associate Degree Registered Nursing, Practical Nursing Certicate (LPN), Patient Care Technicians Certication Program (PCT), Medical Administrative Specialist Certicate Program (MAS) and also new to the program this year a Licensed Practical Nurse to Associate Degree Registered Nursing (LPN to RN) Accelerated Bridge program, that will allow non-traditional students to continue working by only attending classes at the college part-time. Course work and clinicals arent the only subjects students participate in while enrolled in healthcare classes at NFCC. Not only do we teach students to be in healthcare leadership roles, but in community service roles, says Townsend. A current community project is underway and organized by ve NFCC LPN students. They are hosting a 5K run in Perry to benet Taylor County Deputy Robert Lundy who was shot in the line of duty at a Ford dealership. All proceeds from the run will go directly to Deputy Lundy and his family to help cover the cost of medical bills and other expenses. More community service from NFCC in April is a Health Expo, scheduled for April 4 and planned to include booths offering information on the following topics: Dexa Scan/Bone Density, Healthy Start, Abstinence, STD/HIV/Nutrition, Chronic Disease/Nutrition, Blood Pressure Screening, Tobacco Program, Fla. Department of Health Clinic Information, Fitness and Personal Health Information Management. Other involvement the college has with the community includes a partnership with Saint Leo University that works with the campus in order to accommodate students working toward a four-year degree. They also partner with doctors ofces, long-term care facilities and major hospitals to allow NFCC students participation in clinicals, necessary for their education requirements. Technology at NFCC is an area where Townsend says they strive to stay current. The schools newest technological adventure is iPads and Surface Pro tablets that can be moved from classroom to classroom by individual students. A more fascinating technology used by the college, however, is the patient simulators. The high-delity simulators have come a long way from the androgynous Annie simulators used in CPR classes. The human replicas simulates real interaction between student and patient and allows healthcare students to practice procedures on the simulators, before working with real patients, or if no patient is available (such as a labor and delivery nurse, who needs practice with infant care, when no infant is available). The patient simulators have heart and abdominal sounds, lung function, voices, and have all available orices for students to practice IVs, taking blood pressure, NG tubes, catheters or delivering babies. Simulators come in all sizes, from infant to adult, leaving no procedure off-limits to the student. NFCC (and Florida) has been restricted to how much simulation schools can use, but new legislation is hoping to change that restriction. Although North Florida Community College offers quality healthcare education, they are diverse in other career education programs as well. The school offers associate in arts and associate in science degrees that cover business programs, digital and multimedia, ofce technology, public safety, early childhood education and administrative specialist. The campus also offers continuing education, workforce development, NFCC online high school along with the four-year degree program with Saint Leo mentioned above.

By Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc.In this past month, two ladies who attend the Senior Center in Greenville celebrated birthdays, with friends, food and of course, birthday cake. Betty Johnson was in the centers kitchen, making sure there was lunch for all who attended, but was called from kitchen duty, so friends could sing Happy Birthday to her. After thanking everybody for the good wishes, Johnson was back to the kitchen, to help serve everyone lunch. Matilda Thomas was the other birthday girl and although her cake had already been cut and happy birthday wishes sang, she wanted to be able to give thanks in her own words, and here they are: Down through the years, God has been good to me. I have a living mother, Catherine Jinks, who, on Feb. 1, turned 98 years old. On Feb. 15, I turned 83 years old. To have a living mother at this stage of my life is a blessing. I also have 13 children, 40 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren. I am blessed to still be healthy and strong. I am able to take care of myself, grow my own vegetables, mow my yard and attend church regularly all while I take care of my grandson. I spend time helping the community. I volunteer for the Madison School District because education is key. Our youth needs a voice and I choose to speak. I have lived a full life, putting God first every step of the way. I look forward to watching my family grow and receive the blessings God has in store. I dont drink or smoke. I feel great about myself and one day, I will meet the Creator of life in Heaven because He is first in my life.Greenville SpotlightMadison Enterprise-Recorder 11 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, March 28, 2014 Crosswinds Health And Rehab Stirs Residents With LoveBy Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc.Jaime Mitchell, Activities Coordinator/Director at Crosswinds Health and Rehabilitation Center, stays active by working to keep the centers residents moving. On a typical day, she moves from activity to activity while residents call out to her as she passes by. Mitchell says she strives to provide activities that meet the needs of all the residents, while respecting their desires and preferences. One of the things Mitchell is most proud of at the center is their sun-drenched outdoor courtyard that overlooks a pond and is complete with an enclosed porch, rocking chairs and ceiling fans. She said the rain showers late this winter brought gorgeous blooms and luscious green grasses the residents are able to enjoy this spring. When creating activities for residents, Jaime says Crosswinds has fabulous residents from a multitude of backgrounds that bring their own talents and experiences to the table. On a given day, residents might be sipping coffee at a coffee club, playing games or working puzzles, participating in arts and crafts, enjoying pet visits, listening to special musical guests, working out, having their hair styled or loading up to take part in an outing to the library or grocery store. Mitchell loves being where she is and says, We have hardworking and talented dietary, housekeeping, maintenance, therapy and nursing teams, a kind-hearted social services director and a gifted administrator. There is a lot of love within these busy walls.Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Rose Klein, March 26, 2014Jessie GrahamGreene Publishing, Inc.
