Registered Sex Offender Moves Into Town Vinson Emanuel Allen Lee Town Manager ResignsBy Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc.The Lee Town Council Meeting was held on Tuesday, April 1 at 7 p.m. at the Lee City Hall. The probation status of Town Manager, Daniel Plain, was up for discussion. Lee Mayor Eddie Bell asked Plain how comfortable he was feeling with everything at this point. “I really love Lee and I love working with all of y’all but this is not my thing,” said Plain in response. “I would like to stay long enough to see this waste water thing through, or as far as I can, but at some point I’m going to be moving along.” After much discussion, Lesley Bontrager made a motion to place an advertisement about the job opening in the newspaper by April 9, have the deadline for applications be April 30 and the job available date be June 16. President McNicol seconded the motion. The vote was 4-0. In other news, there was a discussion about the McMullen House. Plain looked into the roof at the behest of Mayor Bell. Lee Town Council President, Doug McNicol mentioned the need for someone to look at the house after it had rained because it was built with a shake roof and it is not untypical to see light though the roof. It was agreed to have Plain have someone look at it so that they would know what they were dealing with. It was also discussed that the septic systems drain eld needs replacing at Eloise Steward Park. Daniel Plain presented the council two options. Plain could get an estimate from a septic tank contractor or he could pull the permit under his plumbing license and he could do the work. McNicol made a motion to keep the work in house.

My Mom turned 75years-old last month, and we celebrated with her by having all the family get together for a dinner in Valdosta. Near the end of the night, it came time to cut the cake and sing. Our table was in a back room and stretched across one entire wall. The rest of the room, some probably fifty or so people, was a college hockey team from Chicago. When it came time to sing, my daughter Kelli Greene, the shy, quiet introvert like her father, announced to the entire room that we were celebrating the 75thbirthday of our Matriarch, and introduced my Mom to the crowd, stating that she was responsible for the other twenty three people sitting at the table. “Her name is Mary Ellen Greene,” Kelli told them, “but that’s Mrs. Greene or Grandma to you.” The following rendition of Happy Birthday sung by the Greene clan and fiftysomething hockey players and coaches got everyone’s attention in the entire restaurant, count on it. The night ended with my Mom standing up and thanking the team, and us giving them a little over half of a cake that was not eaten. No, devoted reader, you know that is not the end of it. I would not tell this tale simply for the telling of the tale. I have a moral in everything. Those guys traveled a thousand odd miles and became part of a celebration for someone they had never even known existed. Contrarily, they were treated with a good hefty dose of Southern hospitality and good cheer. There exists a theory called the Butterfly Effect. It says that everything we do has an effect far out from us. It is called the Butterfly Effect because the example used to explain it is that a butterfly flapping its wings causes changes in air flow and current, even so slightly. These changes combine with others and effect weather, which affects us all. Thus everything we do has an outward effect like ripples in a pond. Now I’m not saying that these hockey players from Chicago will long cherish that night and tell their grandchildren about the experience. Or that it will alter the course of their lives and the lives of everyone with whom they come into contact. And I am sure that the primary thing they think they garnished from that evening was a story about some hick family in South Georgia, and how we say, “Grand-MAW” and “Thank y’all.” But something that night told me that this was a good thing that was happening. What if one of them was having a bad day, or was worried about something, or maybe even simply felt better from some hick family singing Happy Birthday, or being given a piece of birthday cake from someone they never even knew. What about you? What if that person in the line in front of you in the grocery store is having a bad day when you smile at them? Or perhaps the person behind you, when you let them go first? Or maybe the homeless person who eats tonight because of the dollar you tossed in the Salvation Army bucket last week? Contrarily how about that person you cut off driving, who then gets to work in a bad mood and yells at their coworker, then that person storms out to lunch mad and isn’t paying attention when they pull their car out into oncoming traffic. I have said it before, and I will say it again. Every single thing you do affects other people. In some way, large or small, you are an influence in the lives of thousands of other people. You get to choose if you are a positive or negative influence in the lives of others, but you will be an influence. Will your butterfly effect be a good one, or a bad one? Think about it.I have a few friends who come from other countries. It is interesting to hear them talk about how their lifestyles were different where they came from, than where they are now. Many of the stories give me pause to stop and thank God that I was born in America. I remember a statement one friend made that made me drop my head because it convicted me as an American Christian. My friend's statement was this: "Where I come from, you can tell when someone becomes a Christian, but here, it's like the church is doing the same thing as the world is doing." Wow. That statement really hit home with me and it should hit home with a lot of Christians. Have we become so lukewarm and so carnal that we do not care about God's commands to turn from sin anymore. When we repent of our sins, it means that we should stop engaging in worldly practices. It doesn't mean to say, I'm sorry for doing them and then turn around and start doing the exact same thing again. I will be the rst person to admit that I am not a perfect Christian. Jesus Christ was the only perfect man that ever walked the face of this Earth and He commands us to be holy as He is holy. He wants to work with us. He wants to take the clay that we are and mold us into something that is beautiful. Like a potter, many times he has to throw away the parts of us that are not forming into the beautiful work that He is trying to create. He tosses them aside and breaks them and He breaks us when He does, but He never gives up on us. He takes the clay and begins working with us again. As a Christian, I have been broken many times and many times, God has had to begin work on me again. I hope and I pray that I am getting better and that He doesn't have to break me so many more times, because it hurts to be broken. I think that being broken though would not be as bad as neglect. God hears each and every prayer that I pray because I belong to Him. I am one of His children. He is not obligated to hear the prayers of the world, unless they are prayers of repentance and then, we are told, "whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13) As Christians, don't you think it is time that we begin to live right so that others may see our example and be drawn to the saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ by it. Do we ever have enough money? For most Americans the answer is no. It seems the money ows through our hands very quickly and it’s hard for some people to keep their heads above water. April 5 – 12 is Money Smart week, a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their money. Similar to America Saves, it is a broad coalition of private, public, non-forprot, schools and governmental agencies coming together to spread the word of consumers taking personal action to improve their money skills. Money comes and goes, but there is a lot to think about if you want your money to go further and increase your net worth over time. According to Money Smart, there are ve things consumers do with money; we earn, spend, save and invest, borrow and protect it. Some of these things you may be doing well, but maybe you need to work on other nancial skills to make money go further. Earning money is the rst step in the Money Smart process. If you already earn an income, make it your business to understand all of the deductions and withholding. Social Security and Medicare taxes are two deductions we all have. Other deductions may be employer benets such as health insurance, retirement or a savings plan. Spending money is necessary, but some people spend every dime they bring home without blinking an eye. The solution; have a spending plan. Know your total take home pay for the month, keep track of purchases and write it down. Pay attention to expenses. Fixed expenses are the same every month, while exible expenses change. It’s the exible expenses that can be trimmed if you discover you are spending more than you bring in. It isn’t hard or time consuming to work on a spending plan and it is one sure way of putting yourself in charge of your money. Think before you make a purchase, comparison shop and get the best buy. Saving and investing money will help you build wealth over time. Start a savings habit now and don’t let low interest rates be your excuse. Build an emergency fund for unexpected events such as a car breaking down or the hot water heater going out. Save for life events like children’s education and retirement. Regular amounts of money over time add up. If you have children, teach them the value of saving money. Borrow money wisely. Attaining a home mortgage or buying a car for transportation to work are two good reasons to borrow money. Pay bills on time to build a positive credit report which translates into a lower interest rate when you need to borrow money. You may not have given it much thought, but all of those credit cards are loans, you pay a monthly payment with interest. Before opening a line of credit, understand the annual percentage rate and fees involved. Purchasing on credit adds to your debt load, not your income. If you have credit card debt, make a plan to pay bills off. Protecting your money involves action on your part, keeping nancial records is a step in the right direction. Identity theft is a major consumer problem these days, so guard your personal information. Lock your social security card in a safe place and never carry it in your wallet. Never give out personal information such as bank account numbers, your date of birth or social security number over the phone or e-mail. Whether you spend, save or borrow money, you can sharpen personal nance skills. Using the ve steps offered by Money Smart will take you a long way on your path to nancial security.

Madison County Extension Service Jacobs Ladder Jacob BembryColumnist Conservative Corner Conservative Corner By Claudia Anderson Diann DouglasGuest Columnist Something To Think AboutBy Harvey Greene Harvey GreeneGuest Columnist James Craig is a 37 year veteran of police work. He is one example of an honorable, dedicated professional whose life purpose is the protection of the people in the community where he is employed. Hmm sounds like some of the fine police officers I know here in Madison County. We are very blessed to have police professionals of this caliber. Thank you Ben Stewart, Madison County Sheriff's Office and Gary Calhoun, Madison City Police Department. What makes it of interest to focus on James Craig, however, is how he evolved through the years of his police career, which began in Detroit, Michigan in 1977, when he was 19 years old. Due to department reductions in 1981, he relocated to California where he advanced through the ranks for 28 years. From there, he was appointed as Chief of Police in Portland, Maine where he experienced a reversal of philosophy. Through the years from the start of his career in Detroit and then during the time with the Los Angeles Police Department, he was a very real advocate of strong gun control regulations. In Maine, however, he was confronted with a low crime community and an environment with a high ratio of responsible citizens carrying firearms. Being one of the safest places to live in the US, served as a radical eye opener for him. Now, after being appointed in 2013 as Chief of Police in Detroit, Michigan, James Craig has gone full circle. He is back where he started his career with a reversal of view, which now looks at responsible, armed citizens as a benefit to his city and to his anti-crime efforts. Faced with the fact of life that the danger in a self defense situation does not contain a "pause" button to press while 911 is dialed, Chief Craig encourages Detroiters to empower themselves to defend against criminal attacks. They are now sending the message to criminals and perpetrators of violence, that they are fed up, enough is enough, and they are taking action. This is not advocating violence, but stressing self protection, and not being victims, but being safe. Hmmm sounds like stuff I have heard from local Sheriff's Department programs. James Craig arrived in Detroit last year, declaring war on crime. In January this year, he reported that criminal homicides were down 14 percent and violent crime down 7 percent. He feels that good Americans with Concealed Pistol Licenses in Detroit, for self protection only, defending themselves against attackers, translates into crime reduction and a deterrent towards the vicious Knock-out Game and other violent crime. The message now being sent is that "Crime no longer pays in the city of Detroit.” The police department will find you and Detroiters will not put up with the violence. TOUGH COPS DETROIT TO MADISON.

Truc Huynh allegedly hit a customer in the face after they complained about service. Owner Henry Do said, “She hit the customer. I hear boom. I go out and tell her no no no. That’s it.” Officers who arrived at the scene saw the victim had a bruised jaw and confronted 29-year-old Huynh. According to the Boise Police Department news release, “When officers suggested they could speak in a more private area of the restaurant, Huynh grabbed a butter knife and stepped back into a fighting stance, verbally challenging the officers. They eventually persuaded Huynh to put the knife down and she was taken into custody. After being handcuffed, Huynh continued to resist, kicking an officer twice in the leg.” The victim who had been struck by Huynh declined to press charges. Man Robs Houses Wearing Only A Cowboy Hat In John’s Creek, Ga., a 21-year-old man was arrested and is thought to be the person behind a series of burglaries carried out by a man wearing nothing more than a cowboy hat.

Before running away, Gibbs took a motorcycle from the driveway. After fleeing the first house, he reportedly broke into another home, where he listened to some Elvis on a vintage jukebox and watched TV while drinkingbeer. When Gibbs was arrested he was wearing clothes taken from the second home and told police he was a U.S. Marshal.Fundraiser Dinner For Robert Sealey And FamilyBy Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.Miss Jean’s Schoolhouse will be sponsoring a fundraiser dinner to benet Robert Sealey and his family, as they ght with him, against renal cell carcinoma.

From Page 1Florida’s seasonally adjusted total nonagricultural employment was 7,718,500 in February, an increase of 33,400 jobs over the month. Seasonally adjusted means the numbers have been purged of seasonal and other factors that could skew the results. “Compared to February a year ago, the number of jobs in the state was up by 211,500, an increase of 2.8 percent,” the FDEO reports. “Florida’s annual job growth has exceeded or been equal to the nation’ rate since March 2012.” For Madison County, the 8.6 percent translates into 602 jobless persons out of a labor force of 7,039, compared with 586 jobless persons out of a labor force of 6,931 in January, when the rate was 8.5 percent. In February 2013, the comparable gures were 668 jobless persons out of a labor force of 7,142, when the unemployment rate was 9.4 percent. For Jefferson County, the 5.9 percent rate translates into 376 jobless persons out of a labor force of 6,423, compared with 350 jobless persons out of a labor force of 6,328 in January, when the rate was 5.5 percent. In February 2013, the comparable gures were 412 jobless persons out of a workforce of 6,289, when the unemployment rate was 6.6 percent. “February 2014 was the 43rdconsecutive month with positive annual job growth after the state lost jobs for over three years,” the FDEO report states. The industry gaining the most jobs continued to be trade, transportation and utilities, up 48,400 jobs; followed by professional and business services, up 47,900; construction, up 39,200 jobs; leisure and hospitality, up 35,700 jobs; private education and health services, up 15,400 jobs; nancial activities, up 12,300 jobs; manufacturing, up 8,600 jobs; other services, up 3,000 jobs; and information, up 2,000 jobs. The only industry continuing to lose jobs over the year was total government, down 1,000 jobs, with both state and federal cutbacks contributing to the loss. Monroe County continued to have the state’s lowest unemployment rate at 3.8 percent, followed by Walton County at 4.2 percent; Alachua and Okaloosa counties at 5.0 percent; and Bradford and St. Johns counties at 5.2 percent. Hendry County continued to have the state’s highest unemployment rate at 9.8 percent, followed by Flagler County at 9.4 percent; Hamilton County at 9.0 percent; and Hernando, Madison and Putnam counties at 8.6 percent. For the second consecutive month, no county had double-digit unemployment in February. CORRECTION The Madison Boys Choir Palm Sunday Performances are Palm Sunday weekend, Friday, April 11, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, April 12, at 7 p.m., with a matinee performance Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m.If there is enough interest and enough tickets sold, there will be a second matinee performance added on Sunday afternoon, also at 3 p.m. It's not this weekend, April 4 and 5, as originally reported, so you still have a week to get your tickets from any of the Madison Boys Choir members, for a chance to hear them sing on stage at the RATT Pact Theater at 196 SW Range Street. Many people have already heard them sing at different events in and around Madison County and know what a talented group they are, so tickets will prob ably go fast.

The following poem was revised (from Poems For Grandmother) and recited by her great-granddaughter, Megan Hayes, as her brother Curtis (Tallahassee) presented owers to great grandmother. On The Wings Of An Angel My oh-so-precious Grandma, I've always wondered where you keep your wings, Do you hang them in your closet, with each of your other things? Or, do you just put them away when no one's looking and use them only at night, Maybe you just give them away to the stars, to polish them up oh-sobright, In any case, I'm positive you have wings; it surely must be true, Cause God always gives them to angels like you, who are but oh-sofew.Around Madison County4 € Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, April 4, 2014 Obituaries Danny Terrill, born in Detroit, Mich. on August 2, 1949, passed from this life after a long illness on April 1, at Haven Hospice Center in Lake City.

Dr. Seuss Continued...By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Front feet, back feet, red feet, black feet, left feet, right feet, feet, feet, feet....” Before Dr. Seuss' “The Foot Book,” who would have thought that feet would be such a fascinating topic for a children's book? Seuss has charmed generations of children with rhymes that make the everyday extraordinary and bring oddities of the imagination to life with lively, almost musical patterns of words and rhymes, populating the world of storytelling with the Cat in the Hat, the Grinch, Sam I Am and many more. One doesn't even have to be a Seussophile to recognize these iconic characters. To this day, many schools, including schools in Madison County, celebrate Seuss' birthday with in-school reading festivals that feature guest readers from the community, and sometimes have classes go out into the community to share a Dr. Seuss book with others, as when the Pre-K students at Madison Central School recently visited the Madison Health and Rehabilitation Center to share a reading of “The Foot Book,” with residents and sing a few lively songs to celebrate both Seuss's birthday and the arrival of spring. Madison Public Library Youth Services Coordinator Cindy Pedicini was there to do the honors, dressed in her Cat in the Hat costume as she read enthusiastically from the “The Foot Book.” Greene Publishing, Inc.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Having recently concluded a Regional Site Selector Event out at Honey Lake Plantation, Crawford Powell, Economic Consultant for Madison and Lafayette Counties, addressed the Madison Rotary Club to update everyone on economic development progress in the North Central Florida Region in general and Madison County in particular. Since Site Selector Events are very expensive to put on, the one at Honey Lake was done on a regional basis rather than just Madison County alone. Nevertheless, Powell was very positive about it, saying that Honey Lake was a fantastic place to bring the visitors, nine site selectors from all over the Southeastern U.S. “It's like bringing somebody to your house, so they can relax and get to know you,” he said. The key is developing relationships with them, because even if they locate 30 or 40 miles away, it will still create jobs in Madison. People are a lot more mobile than they used to be and are willing to travel further to work. At the time of his Rotary address, Powell was in the process of setting up a meeting with a site selector from Birmingham, Ala. Describing regional site selectors as “like real estate agents for corporate relocations,” Powell added that discussion points with them about possibly moving their businesses to Madison County include knowing who their corporate clients are, how they ship their goods, will they need rail service, and how large their footprint will be. Do they want to build, renovate an existing building or are they looking for a move-in-ready site? Meanwhile, business owners want to know what is the population base of Madison County, and whether or not the education level of Madison and neighboring counties is sufcient to provide the workforce they will need. The dream megasite for many site selectors is a large area located next to both a railroad and an interstate, with sewer, water, gas, electric and other necessary utilities already in place and ready to hook up. Many small communities with limited resources have a hard time coming up with such sites, but Madison County is fortunate enough to have two sites that come very close. One is located in the southern part of the county, close to SR 53 and I-10, and the other, the Florida Woodlands site, covers everything except the railroad tie-in. One of the key things corporate entities look for is a dependable supply of natural gas, and Crawford is working with the City of Madison to beef up its ability to supply the natural gas at sufcient pressure that businesses would need to operate. One detriment in Madison County's competition for new businesses is the perceived education level of the local population. One of the things that Powell hears over and over again from prospective business owners is that they fear the education level of the county population is not sufcient to meet that business' needs as far as a work force. It's a common fear businesses have regarding small, rural communities, whether it is true or just a stereotype. He counters this by pointing to North Florida Community College and the St. Leo University Branch Campus, both located in Madison. Additionally, the county is equally distant between FSU and UF with their technology and electronic programs as well as several career/vocational training programs like the one at MCHS and in Taylor County. Another detriment is the “herd instinct” among businesses. They just feel safer going where the herd goes, and that's the metropolitan areas like Jacksonville or Miami. “That's what small counties have to compete against,” said Powell. They compete by playing up their positives, and knowing how to make those positives work for them and outweigh the negatives. Small communities have to “sell” themselves a little harder, and work to make sure their positives outweigh any negatives. One big positive that Madison has is that the county owns its two industrial sites locations. It's much easier to deal with publicly-owned facilities rather than privately owned sites. It's a big plus in Madison's favor, and something that Powell and the Economic Development Board can use to make sure Madison's economic future stays on track and hopefully brings new jobs, sometime in the near future.Around Madison County6 € Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, April 4, 2014 Crawford Powell Updates Rotary Club On Economic Development EffortsGreene Publishing, Inc.

Submitted By Dan Fenneman Extension Agent 1 – AgricultureYes, we can grow cold hardy citrus in North Florida. With proper variety selection, planting location and good tree health, citrus can be successfully grown in North Florida. Prior to the hard freezes during the 1980’s, many Satsuma and other fruit trees were grown here in North Florida. Several people that I have spoken with recently mention the fact that their parents or grandparents grew Satsuma trees in their yards. As children, they were constantly being reminded not to eat too many of the delicious fruit or they would have an upset stomach. During this time period and into the 1990’s, the freezes forced fruit orchards to move further south, eventually settling into the central part of the state. Since that time, universities across the South, especially the University of Florida and Louisiana State University, have been developing new cultivars that can handle colder temperatures. Researchers at the UF/IFAS North Florida Research and Education Center near Quincy are currently evaluating the longevity and production of a number of citrus varieties for use in North Florida. A planting of new and old cultivars was established during the spring of 2011. The following cultivars are being evaluated for horticultural characteristics and cold-hardiness: Owari Satsuma, Brown Select Satsuma, Xie Shan Satsuma, Minneola Honeybelle, Sugar Belle, Tango and US Early Pride. All cultivars are budded on Swingle rootstocks. Proper variety selection is the first consideration. As mentioned above there are many different varieties available but the key is the rootstock these trees are grafted on. Citrus experts in both the industry and academia recommend planting trees that have been grafted onto trifoliate orange, or sour orange rootstock in areas north of Ocala. This rootstock has shown to be highly cold tolerant. There are other rootstocks available such as Swingle and Flying Dragon that have parentage from trifoliate. They also have shown good cold tolerance. The next consideration is planting site selection. Wellestablished Satsuma trees can withstand temperatures into the teens, but all citrus trees, even the cold-hardy ones, must be protected the first two to three years during establishment. Planting on the south side of buildings or windbreaks is an attempt to minimize exposure to north or northwest winds. Planting on the south side of a home or building works well for homeowners who only plant a few trees. Larger plantings should also be planted on the south side of some sort of windbreak, such as a tree line. Freeze protection methods such as micro-sprinkler irrigation, tree wraps and mounding soil around the tree trunks (in a cone shape) can also be used to minimize freeze damage. Finally, good tree health and nutrition will help the tree withstand freezing temperatures. Follow recommended cultural practices and fertilization to maintain the trees in the best condition. The Madison County Extension office will be hosting a “Citrus for North Florida” meeting on Tuesday, April 15 at 5:30 p.m. at the Madison County Extension Office, located at 184 NW College Loop, in Madison. All interested parties are invited to attend. Please register by calling the Madison Extension office at (850) 973-4138.

It is only when a conductor leads them that they create the beautiful music imagined by the composer. The same can be said about your retirement strategy. The typical retirement strategy is a built on the pillars of your 401(k) plan, your IRA, and taxable savings. Getting the instruments of your retirement to work in concert has the potential to go far in realizing the retirement you imagine. H i e r a r c h y o f S a v i n g s Maximizing the effectiveness of your retirement strategy begins with understanding the hierarchy of savings. If youre like most Americans, the amount you can save for retirement is not unlimited. Consequently, you may want to make sure that your savings are directed to the highest priority retirement funding options first. For many, that hierarchy begins with the 401(k), is followed by an IRA and, after that, taxable savings. You will then want to consider how to invest each of these savings pools. One strategy is to simply mirror your desired asset allocation in all retirement accounts. Another approach is to implement the income-generating portion of the allocation (e.g., bonds) in the taxdeferred accounts, while investing in assets whose gains will be from capital appreciation (e.g., stocks) in the taxable accounts. When it comes to living off your savings, youll want to coordinate your withdrawals. One school of thought recommends that you tap your taxable account savings first so that your tax-deferred savings will be afforded more time for potential growth. W i t h d r a w a l S t r a t e g y Another school of thought suggests taking distributions first from your poorer performing retirement accounts since this money is not working as hard for you. Finally, because many individuals have both Traditional and Roth accounts, your expectations about future tax rates may affect what account you withdraw from first. (If you think tax rates are going higher, then you might want to withdraw from the Traditional before the Roth). If youre uncertain, you may want to consider withdrawing from the Traditional up to the lowest tax bracket, then withdrawing from the Roth after that. In any case, each persons circumstances are unique and any strategy ought to reflect your particular risk tolerance, time horizon, and goals.

Turn down Caladium Way to the Blomquist's Madison Peach Farm, and you'll see rows of trees, some filled with pink blossoms, and some of which have already shed their blossoms and started putting out the long thin leaves, as tiny green buds along the branches begin shaping themselves into fuzzy little peach shapes. Carl and Sharlene Blomquist have been running the “u-pick” peach farm for about 10 years now, and once again, they have come up to Madison to begin preparing the orchard – mowing, pruning, clearing out underneath the trees and bringing in the bee hives from Perry to make sure the flowers are properly pollinated – for customers who will soon be coming to pick the fresh ripe peaches. “We have customers who come back year after year, who have their favorite trees,” said Sharlene. “When they get here, they rush right to it, and hope somebody else hasn't gotten there first.” The Blomquists have six varieties of peaches, chosen for their ability to set fruit with a minimum number of chill hours in the mild North Florida climate: June Gold, Suwannee, Texas Royal, La Rouge, Sam Houston and Southern Pearl. In about a month, the first of these trees will be covered with the characteristic long, thin green leaves and laden with ripe peaches ready for plucking. Then, with their containers of fruit filling their cars with the delightful scent of warm peaches, they'll head home to enjoy fresh fruit, or make jams, jellies or cobblers. Perhaps a few still practice the nearly lost art of canning, to ensure that they have peaches to enjoy year round. The farm is usually open by early May, usually the first Saturday, but things like weather can influence ripening dates. Customers who want to be notified of when peaches are ready can send their email addresses to cwb721@gmail.com Once the picking season starts, the orchard is open every weekend on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The Madison Peach Farm is located at 340 Caladium Way, off Dusty Miller Road. Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Lynette Norris, March 26, 2014Sharlene Blomquist examines a peach tree in full bloom.

By Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc.Last month, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) students from Madison County High School (MCHS) along with Jefferson and Taylor County High Schools gathered at North Florida Community College (NFCC) to participate in a design and engineering challenge. The FloridaLearns STEM program spearheaded the activity that was designed for gifted and talented secondary students in Florida’s rural school districts. FloridaLearns was implemented by a partnership between the Panhandle Area Education Consortium and the Heartland Educational Consortium to ensure students in rural areas would have more rigorous STEM courses available. The program also offers students information about career awareness and readiness, provides scholarship information and supports the social and emotional needs of gifted and talented students. The design and engineering challenge at NFCC, grouped students from all schools into teams of three where they were given balsa wood and glue and instructed to design and build a tower that would be able to balance and support as much weight as possible, with little other criteria given. The students had 20 minutes to discuss the design with teammates and 120 minutes to construct the balsa wood tower before breaking for lunch. Brenda Crouch, the project manager who coordinates the panhandle activities for the Panhandle Consortium, was present to oversee the engineering project that she says was designed to give students experience in collaborating as a team as well as to inspire students toward higher education that would focus them on a STEM-related field. When speaking of NFCC Crouch said, “They’ve provided everything we have needed and they’ve been a fantastic partner.” Carol Bailey, a Gifted Education Specialist from Tallahassee was also on hand and was walking from student table to student table, checking on the balsa wood structures and said, “I love the collaboration and all the kids are really involved in the activity.” Serious and concentrated faces of students echoed her words as they diligently worked on their projects before strolling to other tables in order to check out their competition. The finished structures came in many shapes and sizes. Some of the balsa towers were rectangular with center supports, there were tube shapes and box shapes and even triangle shapes. There were rectangles inside of rectangles, pentagons, hexagons and octagons. The individual thought processes of the students and individuality through out the design and building of the towers was evident, as the structures were placed, side-by-side, on a table. After lunch, testing the design was done by weights being placed on a crusher board, where the weights were required to stay in place for three seconds before crushing the tower. Afterwards, engineering principles and redesign of the tower was discussed to enlighten students on the proper mechanics of building the tower. FloridaLearns will have more learning opportunities for Madison County STEM students during the remainder of the school year along with several trips offered during the summer months.School8 €Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, April 4, 2014 Make 2014 the year you change your life CLASSES IN MADISON STA RTMBachelors Degree Programs €Business Administration with specialization in Management €Computer Information Systems €Criminal Justice €Elementary Education €Health Care Management €Human Services €Psychology Full-time students may be eligible for the Florida Resident Access Grant (FRAG) Approved for VA Bene“ts/GI Bill Classes now forming in Madison(850) 973-3356 madison@saintleo.edu What you need for where youre going Now offering The Doctorate of Business Administration (Online and On Campus) ou need for wher What y e y ou need for wher e going r  ou dministration A usiness B € ee egr re s D  achelor B dministration ograms r r ee P dministration A usiness B € with specialization in nformation Computer I € anagement M anagement e M ealth Car H € ducation lementary E E € ustice riminal J C € ystems S dministration with specialization in nformation anagement ducation N The D ing fer w of o N octorate of The D chology sy P € ervices uman S H € G) rant (FRA G esident ida R lor F be eligible for the ull-time students may F ervices ccess A esident be eligible for the ull-time students may usiness B The D nline and O (O dministration A usiness octorate of The D ampus) n C nline and O V ed for v o ppr ro A ill ene“ts/GI B B adison in M w for Classes nowww A VA madison@saintleo.edu (850) 973-3356 ming w for.saintleo.edu/mp www madison@saintleo.edu (850) 973-3356.saintleo.edu/mp MCHS STEM SCHOLARS COMPETE IN FLORIDALEARNS CHALLENGEGreene Publishing, Inc.

And Philadelphia By Jessie R. Box Greene Publishing, Inc. The Madison Academy 8thgrade class went to Washington D.C., and Philadelphia, Pa., Feb. 20-25. Leigh Ann Browning, Madison Academy’s English and Science teacher, her 17 students and 18 parents spent three days in Washington, D.C. and two days in Philadelphia. While in Washington D.C., the students visited the Capitol, the Library of Congress, the Supreme Court, the Holocaust Museum, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and the Arlington National Cemetery. Before the trip, Browning had the students research the names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and write a letter or poem to that person. When they visited, the students could leave what they had written on the wall for that person. According to Browning, the students were able to tour the Pentagon and that was a highlight for some of the students. During the trip, the students visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the Arlington National Cemetery and it was a hit with the 8thgraders. Browning had all 17 of her students make a wreath for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Only four were allowed to participate in the laying of the wreath ceremony, according to the rules dictated by the Arlington National Cemetery and the principal of Madison Academy chose the four. A former tomb guard spoke with the students about how it was a huge honor to guard the tomb but the guards have to live a clean life so as to not dishonor the Unknown Soldier. “I enjoyed that and the kids did as well,” said Browning. “It made a huge impact.” They also visited the United States Institute of Peace, which is an independent, nonpartisan institution established and funded by Congress to increase the nation’s capacity to manage international conflict without violence. The students did different workshops that covered team building, such as conflict resolution and role-playing so that the students could see a different way of resolving conflict without violence. The white weather in Washington D.C., when they arrived, allowed the students to ice skate and play in the snow. According to Browning, the students had a lot of fun. On their way to Philadelphia, Pa., they stopped at Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Md. This is where Francis Scott Key, witnessed the attack on Fort McHenry and upon seeing the American flag still flying the next morning, he wrote “The Star-Spangled Banner.” This year will be the 200thanniversary of the Battle of Baltimore. While in Philadelphia, the students visited The National Constitution Center, which is the first-ever museum dedicated to the U.S. Constitution. They also visited Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution was signed, and the Liberty Bell, which is next to Independence Hall. They also visited the U.S. Mint, where the students could learn about how coins are made and the Franklin Institute, which is a hands-on science museum. “A lot of the kids liked the hands-on museum and the fort was a big hit,” said Browning.

Registered Sex Offender Moves Into Town Vinson Emanuel Allen Lee Town Manager ResignsBy Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc.The Lee Town Council Meeting was held on Tuesday, April 1 at 7 p.m. at the Lee City Hall. The probation status of Town Manager, Daniel Plain, was up for discussion. Lee Mayor Eddie Bell asked Plain how comfortable he was feeling with everything at this point. I really love Lee and I love working with all of yall but this is not my thing, said Plain in response. I would like to stay long enough to see this waste water thing through, or as far as I can, but at some point Im going to be moving along. After much discussion, Lesley Bontrager made a motion to place an advertisement about the job opening in the newspaper by April 9, have the deadline for applications be April 30 and the job available date be June 16. President McNicol seconded the motion. The vote was 4-0. In other news, there was a discussion about the McMullen House. Plain looked into the roof at the behest of Mayor Bell. Lee Town Council President, Doug McNicol mentioned the need for someone to look at the house after it had rained because it was built with a shake roof and it is not untypical to see light though the roof. It was agreed to have Plain have someone look at it so that they would know what they were dealing with. It was also discussed that the septic systems drain eld needs replacing at Eloise Steward Park. Daniel Plain presented the council two options. Plain could get an estimate from a septic tank contractor or he could pull the permit under his plumbing license and he could do the work. McNicol made a motion to keep the work in house. Terry Putnal, President of the Lee Volunteer Fire Department reported that there were 12 calls for March: ve wrecks, three medical calls, two structure res in Madison, one vehicle re and one brush re.

My Mom turned 75years-old last month, and we celebrated with her by having all the family get together for a dinner in Valdosta. Near the end of the night, it came time to cut the cake and sing. Our table was in a back room and stretched across one entire wall. The rest of the room, some probably fifty or so people, was a college hockey team from Chicago. When it came time to sing, my daughter Kelli Greene, the shy, quiet introvert like her father, announced to the entire room that we were celebrating the 75thbirthday of our Matriarch, and introduced my Mom to the crowd, stating that she was responsible for the other twenty three people sitting at the table. Her name is Mary Ellen Greene, Kelli told them, but thats Mrs. Greene or Grandma to you. The following rendition of Happy Birthday sung by the Greene clan and fiftysomething hockey players and coaches got everyones attention in the entire restaurant, count on it. The night ended with my Mom standing up and thanking the team, and us giving them a little over half of a cake that was not eaten. No, devoted reader, you know that is not the end of it. I would not tell this tale simply for the telling of the tale. I have a moral in everything. Those guys traveled a thousand odd miles and became part of a celebration for someone they had never even known existed. Contrarily, they were treated with a good hefty dose of Southern hospitality and good cheer. There exists a theory called the Butterfly Effect. It says that everything we do has an effect far out from us. It is called the Butterfly Effect because the example used to explain it is that a butterfly flapping its wings causes changes in air flow and current, even so slightly. These changes combine with others and effect weather, which affects us all. Thus everything we do has an outward effect like ripples in a pond. Now Im not saying that these hockey players from Chicago will long cherish that night and tell their grandchildren about the experience. Or that it will alter the course of their lives and the lives of everyone with whom they come into contact. And I am sure that the primary thing they think they garnished from that evening was a story about some hick family in South Georgia, and how we say, Grand-MAW and Thank yall. But something that night told me that this was a good thing that was happening. What if one of them was having a bad day, or was worried about something, or maybe even simply felt better from some hick family singing Happy Birthday, or being given a piece of birthday cake from someone they never even knew. What about you? What if that person in the line in front of you in the grocery store is having a bad day when you smile at them? Or perhaps the person behind you, when you let them go first? Or maybe the homeless person who eats tonight because of the dollar you tossed in the Salvation Army bucket last week? Contrarily how about that person you cut off driving, who then gets to work in a bad mood and yells at their coworker, then that person storms out to lunch mad and isnt paying attention when they pull their car out into oncoming traffic. I have said it before, and I will say it again. Every single thing you do affects other people. In some way, large or small, you are an influence in the lives of thousands of other people. You get to choose if you are a positive or negative influence in the lives of others, but you will be an influence. Will your butterfly effect be a good one, or a bad one? Think about it.I have a few friends who come from other countries. It is interesting to hear them talk about how their lifestyles were different where they came from, than where they are now. Many of the stories give me pause to stop and thank God that I was born in America. I remember a statement one friend made that made me drop my head because it convicted me as an American Christian. My friend's statement was this: "Where I come from, you can tell when someone becomes a Christian, but here, it's like the church is doing the same thing as the world is doing." Wow. That statement really hit home with me and it should hit home with a lot of Christians. Have we become so lukewarm and so carnal that we do not care about God's commands to turn from sin anymore. When we repent of our sins, it means that we should stop engaging in worldly practices. It doesn't mean to say, I'm sorry for doing them and then turn around and start doing the exact same thing again. I will be the rst person to admit that I am not a perfect Christian. Jesus Christ was the only perfect man that ever walked the face of this Earth and He commands us to be holy as He is holy. He wants to work with us. He wants to take the clay that we are and mold us into something that is beautiful. Like a potter, many times he has to throw away the parts of us that are not forming into the beautiful work that He is trying to create. He tosses them aside and breaks them and He breaks us when He does, but He never gives up on us. He takes the clay and begins working with us again. As a Christian, I have been broken many times and many times, God has had to begin work on me again. I hope and I pray that I am getting better and that He doesn't have to break me so many more times, because it hurts to be broken. I think that being broken though would not be as bad as neglect. God hears each and every prayer that I pray because I belong to Him. I am one of His children. He is not obligated to hear the prayers of the world, unless they are prayers of repentance and then, we are told, "whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13) As Christians, don't you think it is time that we begin to live right so that others may see our example and be drawn to the saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ by it. Do we ever have enough money? For most Americans the answer is no. It seems the money ows through our hands very quickly and its hard for some people to keep their heads above water. April 5 12 is Money Smart week, a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their money. Similar to America Saves, it is a broad coalition of private, public, non-forprot, schools and governmental agencies coming together to spread the word of consumers taking personal action to improve their money skills. Money comes and goes, but there is a lot to think about if you want your money to go further and increase your net worth over time. According to Money Smart, there are ve things consumers do with money; we earn, spend, save and invest, borrow and protect it. Some of these things you may be doing well, but maybe you need to work on other nancial skills to make money go further. Earning money is the rst step in the Money Smart process. If you already earn an income, make it your business to understand all of the deductions and withholding. Social Security and Medicare taxes are two deductions we all have. Other deductions may be employer benets such as health insurance, retirement or a savings plan. Spending money is necessary, but some people spend every dime they bring home without blinking an eye. The solution; have a spending plan. Know your total take home pay for the month, keep track of purchases and write it down. Pay attention to expenses. Fixed expenses are the same every month, while exible expenses change. Its the exible expenses that can be trimmed if you discover you are spending more than you bring in. It isnt hard or time consuming to work on a spending plan and it is one sure way of putting yourself in charge of your money. Think before you make a purchase, comparison shop and get the best buy. Saving and investing money will help you build wealth over time. Start a savings habit now and dont let low interest rates be your excuse. Build an emergency fund for unexpected events such as a car breaking down or the hot water heater going out. Save for life events like childrens education and retirement. Regular amounts of money over time add up. If you have children, teach them the value of saving money. Borrow money wisely. Attaining a home mortgage or buying a car for transportation to work are two good reasons to borrow money. Pay bills on time to build a positive credit report which translates into a lower interest rate when you need to borrow money. You may not have given it much thought, but all of those credit cards are loans, you pay a monthly payment with interest. Before opening a line of credit, understand the annual percentage rate and fees involved. Purchasing on credit adds to your debt load, not your income. If you have credit card debt, make a plan to pay bills off. Protecting your money involves action on your part, keeping nancial records is a step in the right direction. Identity theft is a major consumer problem these days, so guard your personal information. Lock your social security card in a safe place and never carry it in your wallet. Never give out personal information such as bank account numbers, your date of birth or social security number over the phone or e-mail. Whether you spend, save or borrow money, you can sharpen personal nance skills. Using the ve steps offered by Money Smart will take you a long way on your path to nancial security. For more information on managing money, contact the Madison County Extension Service. The University of Florida IFAS/Extension is an Equal Opportunity Institution.

Madison County Extension Service Jacobs Ladder Jacob BembryColumnist Conservative Corner Conservative CornerBy Claudia Anderson Diann DouglasGuest Columnist Something To Think AboutBy Harvey Greene Harvey GreeneGuest Columnist James Craig is a 37 year veteran of police work. He is one example of an honorable, dedicated professional whose life purpose is the protection of the people in the community where he is employed. Hmm sounds like some of the fine police officers I know here in Madison County. We are very blessed to have police professionals of this caliber. Thank you Ben Stewart, Madison County Sheriff's Office and Gary Calhoun, Madison City Police Department. What makes it of interest to focus on James Craig, however, is how he evolved through the years of his police career, which began in Detroit, Michigan in 1977, when he was 19 years old. Due to department reductions in 1981, he relocated to California where he advanced through the ranks for 28 years. From there, he was appointed as Chief of Police in Portland, Maine where he experienced a reversal of philosophy. Through the years from the start of his career in Detroit and then during the time with the Los Angeles Police Department, he was a very real advocate of strong gun control regulations. In Maine, however, he was confronted with a low crime community and an environment with a high ratio of responsible citizens carrying firearms. Being one of the safest places to live in the US, served as a radical eye opener for him. Now, after being appointed in 2013 as Chief of Police in Detroit, Michigan, James Craig has gone full circle. He is back where he started his career with a reversal of view, which now looks at responsible, armed citizens as a benefit to his city and to his anti-crime efforts. Faced with the fact of life that the danger in a self defense situation does not contain a "pause" button to press while 911 is dialed, Chief Craig encourages Detroiters to empower themselves to defend against criminal attacks. They are now sending the message to criminals and perpetrators of violence, that they are fed up, enough is enough, and they are taking action. This is not advocating violence, but stressing self protection, and not being victims, but being safe. Hmmm sounds like stuff I have heard from local Sheriff's Department programs. James Craig arrived in Detroit last year, declaring war on crime. In January this year, he reported that criminal homicides were down 14 percent and violent crime down 7 percent. He feels that good Americans with Concealed Pistol Licenses in Detroit, for self protection only, defending themselves against attackers, translates into crime reduction and a deterrent towards the vicious Knock-out Game and other violent crime. The message now being sent is that "Crime no longer pays in the city of Detroit. The police department will find you and Detroiters will not put up with the violence. TOUGH COPS DETROIT TO MADISON.

Truc Huynh allegedly hit a customer in the face after they complained about service. Owner Henry Do said, She hit the customer. I hear boom. I go out and tell her no no no. Thats it. Officers who arrived at the scene saw the victim had a bruised jaw and confronted 29-year-old Huynh. According to the Boise Police Department news release, When officers suggested they could speak in a more private area of the restaurant, Huynh grabbed a butter knife and stepped back into a fighting stance, verbally challenging the officers. They eventually persuaded Huynh to put the knife down and she was taken into custody. After being handcuffed, Huynh continued to resist, kicking an officer twice in the leg. The victim who had been struck by Huynh declined to press charges.

From Page 1Floridas seasonally adjusted total nonagricultural employment was 7,718,500 in February, an increase of 33,400 jobs over the month. Seasonally adjusted means the numbers have been purged of seasonal and other factors that could skew the results. Compared to February a year ago, the number of jobs in the state was up by 211,500, an increase of 2.8 percent, the FDEO reports. Floridas annual job growth has exceeded or been equal to the nation rate since March 2012. For Madison County, the 8.6 percent translates into 602 jobless persons out of a labor force of 7,039, compared with 586 jobless persons out of a labor force of 6,931 in January, when the rate was 8.5 percent. In February 2013, the comparable gures were 668 jobless persons out of a labor force of 7,142, when the unemployment rate was 9.4 percent. For Jefferson County, the 5.9 percent rate translates into 376 jobless persons out of a labor force of 6,423, compared with 350 jobless persons out of a labor force of 6,328 in January, when the rate was 5.5 percent. In February 2013, the comparable gures were 412 jobless persons out of a workforce of 6,289, when the unemployment rate was 6.6 percent. February 2014 was the 43rdconsecutive month with positive annual job growth after the state lost jobs for over three years, the FDEO report states. The industry gaining the most jobs continued to be trade, transportation and utilities, up 48,400 jobs; followed by professional and business services, up 47,900; construction, up 39,200 jobs; leisure and hospitality, up 35,700 jobs; private education and health services, up 15,400 jobs; nancial activities, up 12,300 jobs; manufacturing, up 8,600 jobs; other services, up 3,000 jobs; and information, up 2,000 jobs. The only industry continuing to lose jobs over the year was total government, down 1,000 jobs, with both state and federal cutbacks contributing to the loss. Monroe County continued to have the states lowest unemployment rate at 3.8 percent, followed by Walton County at 4.2 percent; Alachua and Okaloosa counties at 5.0 percent; and Bradford and St. Johns counties at 5.2 percent. Hendry County continued to have the states highest unemployment rate at 9.8 percent, followed by Flagler County at 9.4 percent; Hamilton County at 9.0 percent; and Hernando, Madison and Putnam counties at 8.6 percent. For the second consecutive month, no county had double-digit unemployment in February.

The following poem was revised (from Poems For Grandmother) and recited by her great-granddaughter, Megan Hayes, as her brother Curtis (Tallahassee) presented owers to great grandmother. On The Wings Of An Angel My oh-so-precious Grandma, I've always wondered where you keep your wings, Do you hang them in your closet, with each of your other things? Or, do you just put them away when no one's looking and use them only at night, Maybe you just give them away to the stars, to polish them up oh-sobright, In any case, I'm positive you have wings; it surely must be true, Cause God always gives them to angels like you, who are but oh-sofew.Around Madison County4 Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, April 4, 2014 ObituariesDanny Terrill, born in Detroit, Mich. on August 2, 1949, passed from this life after a long illness on April 1, at Haven Hospice Center in Lake City.

Dr. Seuss Continued...By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Front feet, back feet, red feet, black feet, left feet, right feet, feet, feet, feet.... Before Dr. Seuss' The Foot Book, who would have thought that feet would be such a fascinating topic for a children's book? Seuss has charmed generations of children with rhymes that make the everyday extraordinary and bring oddities of the imagination to life with lively, almost musical patterns of words and rhymes, populating the world of storytelling with the Cat in the Hat, the Grinch, Sam I Am and many more. One doesn't even have to be a Seussophile to recognize these iconic characters. To this day, many schools, including schools in Madison County, celebrate Seuss' birthday with in-school reading festivals that feature guest readers from the community, and sometimes have classes go out into the community to share a Dr. Seuss book with others, as when the Pre-K students at Madison Central School recently visited the Madison Health and Rehabilitation Center to share a reading of The Foot Book, with residents and sing a few lively songs to celebrate both Seuss's birthday and the arrival of spring. Madison Public Library Youth Services Coordinator Cindy Pedicini was there to do the honors, dressed in her Cat in the Hat costume as she read enthusiastically from the The Foot Book.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Having recently concluded a Regional Site Selector Event out at Honey Lake Plantation, Crawford Powell, Economic Consultant for Madison and Lafayette Counties, addressed the Madison Rotary Club to update everyone on economic development progress in the North Central Florida Region in general and Madison County in particular. Since Site Selector Events are very expensive to put on, the one at Honey Lake was done on a regional basis rather than just Madison County alone. Nevertheless, Powell was very positive about it, saying that Honey Lake was a fantastic place to bring the visitors, nine site selectors from all over the Southeastern U.S. It's like bringing somebody to your house, so they can relax and get to know you, he said. The key is developing relationships with them, because even if they locate 30 or 40 miles away, it will still create jobs in Madison. People are a lot more mobile than they used to be and are willing to travel further to work. At the time of his Rotary address, Powell was in the process of setting up a meeting with a site selector from Birmingham, Ala. Describing regional site selectors as like real estate agents for corporate relocations, Powell added that discussion points with them about possibly moving their businesses to Madison County include knowing who their corporate clients are, how they ship their goods, will they need rail service, and how large their footprint will be. Do they want to build, renovate an existing building or are they looking for a move-in-ready site? Meanwhile, business owners want to know what is the population base of Madison County, and whether or not the education level of Madison and neighboring counties is sufcient to provide the workforce they will need. The dream megasite for many site selectors is a large area located next to both a railroad and an interstate, with sewer, water, gas, electric and other necessary utilities already in place and ready to hook up. Many small communities with limited resources have a hard time coming up with such sites, but Madison County is fortunate enough to have two sites that come very close. One is located in the southern part of the county, close to SR 53 and I-10, and the other, the Florida Woodlands site, covers everything except the railroad tie-in. One of the key things corporate entities look for is a dependable supply of natural gas, and Crawford is working with the City of Madison to beef up its ability to supply the natural gas at sufcient pressure that businesses would need to operate. One detriment in Madison County's competition for new businesses is the perceived education level of the local population. One of the things that Powell hears over and over again from prospective business owners is that they fear the education level of the county population is not sufcient to meet that business' needs as far as a work force. It's a common fear businesses have regarding small, rural communities, whether it is true or just a stereotype. He counters this by pointing to North Florida Community College and the St. Leo University Branch Campus, both located in Madison. Additionally, the county is equally distant between FSU and UF with their technology and electronic programs as well as several career/vocational training programs like the one at MCHS and in Taylor County. Another detriment is the herd instinct among businesses. They just feel safer going where the herd goes, and that's the metropolitan areas like Jacksonville or Miami. That's what small counties have to compete against, said Powell. They compete by playing up their positives, and knowing how to make those positives work for them and outweigh the negatives. Small communities have to sell themselves a little harder, and work to make sure their positives outweigh any negatives. One big positive that Madison has is that the county owns its two industrial sites locations. It's much easier to deal with publicly-owned facilities rather than privately owned sites. It's a big plus in Madison's favor, and something that Powell and the Economic Development Board can use to make sure Madison's economic future stays on track and hopefully brings new jobs, sometime in the near future.Around Madison County6 Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, April 4, 2014 Crawford Powell Updates Rotary Club On Economic Development EffortsGreene Publishing, Inc.

Submitted By Dan Fenneman Extension Agent 1 AgricultureYes, we can grow cold hardy citrus in North Florida. With proper variety selection, planting location and good tree health, citrus can be successfully grown in North Florida. Prior to the hard freezes during the 1980s, many Satsuma and other fruit trees were grown here in North Florida. Several people that I have spoken with recently mention the fact that their parents or grandparents grew Satsuma trees in their yards. As children, they were constantly being reminded not to eat too many of the delicious fruit or they would have an upset stomach. During this time period and into the 1990s, the freezes forced fruit orchards to move further south, eventually settling into the central part of the state. Since that time, universities across the South, especially the University of Florida and Louisiana State University, have been developing new cultivars that can handle colder temperatures. Researchers at the UF/IFAS North Florida Research and Education Center near Quincy are currently evaluating the longevity and production of a number of citrus varieties for use in North Florida. A planting of new and old cultivars was established during the spring of 2011. The following cultivars are being evaluated for horticultural characteristics and cold-hardiness: Owari Satsuma, Brown Select Satsuma, Xie Shan Satsuma, Minneola Honeybelle, Sugar Belle, Tango and US Early Pride. All cultivars are budded on Swingle rootstocks. Proper variety selection is the first consideration. As mentioned above there are many different varieties available but the key is the rootstock these trees are grafted on. Citrus experts in both the industry and academia recommend planting trees that have been grafted onto trifoliate orange, or sour orange rootstock in areas north of Ocala. This rootstock has shown to be highly cold tolerant. There are other rootstocks available such as Swingle and Flying Dragon that have parentage from trifoliate. They also have shown good cold tolerance. The next consideration is planting site selection. Wellestablished Satsuma trees can withstand temperatures into the teens, but all citrus trees, even the cold-hardy ones, must be protected the first two to three years during establishment. Planting on the south side of buildings or windbreaks is an attempt to minimize exposure to north or northwest winds. Planting on the south side of a home or building works well for homeowners who only plant a few trees. Larger plantings should also be planted on the south side of some sort of windbreak, such as a tree line. Freeze protection methods such as micro-sprinkler irrigation, tree wraps and mounding soil around the tree trunks (in a cone shape) can also be used to minimize freeze damage. Finally, good tree health and nutrition will help the tree withstand freezing temperatures. Follow recommended cultural practices and fertilization to maintain the trees in the best condition. The Madison County Extension office will be hosting a Citrus for North Florida meeting on Tuesday, April 15 at 5:30 p.m. at the Madison County Extension Office, located at 184 NW College Loop, in Madison. All interested parties are invited to attend. Please register by calling the Madison Extension office at (850) 973-4138.

It is only when a conductor leads them that they create the beautiful music imagined by the composer. The same can be said about your retirement strategy. The typical retirement strategy is a built on the pillars of your 401(k) plan, your IRA, and taxable savings. Getting the instruments of your retirement to work in concert has the potential to go far in realizing the retirement you imagine. Hierarchy of Savings Maximizing the effectiveness of your retirement strategy begins with understanding the hierarchy of savings. If youre like most Americans, the amount you can save for retirement is not unlimited. Consequently, you may want to make sure that your savings are directed to the highest priority retirement funding options first. For many, that hierarchy begins with the 401(k), is followed by an IRA and, after that, taxable savings. You will then want to consider how to invest each of these savings pools. One strategy is to simply mirror your desired asset allocation in all retirement accounts. Another approach is to implement the income-generating portion of the allocation (e.g., bonds) in the taxdeferred accounts, while investing in assets whose gains will be from capital appreciation (e.g., stocks) in the taxable accounts. When it comes to living off your savings, youll want to coordinate your withdrawals. One school of thought recommends that you tap your taxable account savings first so that your tax-deferred savings will be afforded more time for potential growth. Withdrawal Strategy Another school of thought suggests taking distributions first from your poorer performing retirement accounts since this money is not working as hard for you. Finally, because many individuals have both Traditional and Roth accounts, your expectations about future tax rates may affect what account you withdraw from first. (If you think tax rates are going higher, then you might want to withdraw from the Traditional before the Roth). If youre uncertain, you may want to consider withdrawing from the Traditional up to the lowest tax bracket, then withdrawing from the Roth after that. In any case, each persons circumstances are unique and any strategy ought to reflect your particular risk tolerance, time horizon, and goals.

Turn down Caladium Way to the Blomquist's Madison Peach Farm, and you'll see rows of trees, some filled with pink blossoms, and some of which have already shed their blossoms and started putting out the long thin leaves, as tiny green buds along the branches begin shaping themselves into fuzzy little peach shapes. Carl and Sharlene Blomquist have been running the u-pick peach farm for about 10 years now, and once again, they have come up to Madison to begin preparing the orchard mowing, pruning, clearing out underneath the trees and bringing in the bee hives from Perry to make sure the flowers are properly pollinated for customers who will soon be coming to pick the fresh ripe peaches. We have customers who come back year after year, who have their favorite trees, said Sharlene. When they get here, they rush right to it, and hope somebody else hasn't gotten there first. The Blomquists have six varieties of peaches, chosen for their ability to set fruit with a minimum number of chill hours in the mild North Florida climate: June Gold, Suwannee, Texas Royal, La Rouge, Sam Houston and Southern Pearl. In about a month, the first of these trees will be covered with the characteristic long, thin green leaves and laden with ripe peaches ready for plucking. Then, with their containers of fruit filling their cars with the delightful scent of warm peaches, they'll head home to enjoy fresh fruit, or make jams, jellies or cobblers. Perhaps a few still practice the nearly lost art of canning, to ensure that they have peaches to enjoy year round. The farm is usually open by early May, usually the first Saturday, but things like weather can influence ripening dates. Customers who want to be notified of when peaches are ready can send their email addresses to cwb721@gmail.com. Once the picking season starts, the orchard is open every weekend on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The Madison Peach Farm is located at 340 Caladium Way, off Dusty Miller Road. Greene Publishing, Inc.

FloridaLearns was implemented by a partnership between the Panhandle Area Education Consortium and the Heartland Educational Consortium to ensure students in rural areas would have more rigorous STEM courses available. The program also offers students information about career awareness and readiness, provides scholarship information and supports the social and emotional needs of gifted and talented students. The design and engineering challenge at NFCC, grouped students from all schools into teams of three where they were given balsa wood and glue and instructed to design and build a tower that would be able to balance and support as much weight as possible, with little other criteria given. The students had 20 minutes to discuss the design with teammates and 120 minutes to construct the balsa wood tower before breaking for lunch. Brenda Crouch, the project manager who coordinates the panhandle activities for the Panhandle Consortium, was present to oversee the engineering project that she says was designed to give students experience in collaborating as a team as well as to inspire students toward higher education that would focus them on a STEM-related field. When speaking of NFCC Crouch said, Theyve provided everything we have needed and theyve been a fantastic partner. Carol Bailey, a Gifted Education Specialist from Tallahassee was also on hand and was walking from student table to student table, checking on the balsa wood structures and said, I love the collaboration and all the kids are really involved in the activity. Serious and concentrated faces of students echoed her words as they diligently worked on their projects before strolling to other tables in order to check out their competition. The finished structures came in many shapes and sizes. Some of the balsa towers were rectangular with center supports, there were tube shapes and box shapes and even triangle shapes. There were rectangles inside of rectangles, pentagons, hexagons and octagons. The individual thought processes of the students and individuality through out the design and building of the towers was evident, as the structures were placed, side-by-side, on a table. After lunch, testing the design was done by weights being placed on a crusher board, where the weights were required to stay in place for three seconds before crushing the tower. Afterwards, engineering principles and redesign of the tower was discussed to enlighten students on the proper mechanics of building the tower. FloridaLearns will have more learning opportunities for Madison County STEM students during the remainder of the school year along with several trips offered during the summer months.School8 Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, April 4, 2014 Make 2014 the year you change your life CLASSES IN MADISON STA RTMBachelors Degree Programs Business Administration with specialization in Management Computer Information Systems Criminal Justice Elementary Education Health Care Management Human Services Psychology Full-time students may be eligible for the Florida Resident Access Grant (FRAG) Approved for VA Benets/GI Bill Classes now forming in Madison(850) 973-3356 madison@saintleo.edu What you need for where youre going Now offering The Doctorate of Business Administration (Online and On Campus) ou need for wher What y e y ou need for wher e going r ou dministration A usiness B ee egr re s D achelor B dministration ograms r r ee P dministration A usiness B with specialization in nformation Computer I anagement M anagement e M ealth Car H ducation lementary E E ustice riminal J C ystems S dministration with specialization in nformation anagement ducation N The D ing fer w of o N octorate of The D chology sy P ervices uman S H G) rant (FRA G esident ida R lor F be eligible for the ull-time students may F ervices ccess A esident be eligible for the ull-time students may usiness B The D nline and O (O dministration A usiness octorate of The D ampus) n C nline and O V ed for v o ppr ro A ill enets/GI B B adison in M w for Classes nowww A VA madison@saintleo.edu (850) 973-3356 ming w for.saintleo.edu/mp www madison@saintleo.edu (850) 973-3356.saintleo.edu/mp MCHS STEM SCHOLARS COMPETE IN FLORIDALEARNS CHALLENGEGreene Publishing, Inc.

And Philadelphia By Jessie R. Box Greene Publishing, Inc. The Madison Academy 8thgrade class went to Washington D.C., and Philadelphia, Pa., Feb. 20-25. Leigh Ann Browning, Madison Academys English and Science teacher, her 17 students and 18 parents spent three days in Washington, D.C. and two days in Philadelphia. While in Washington D.C., the students visited the Capitol, the Library of Congress, the Supreme Court, the Holocaust Museum, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and the Arlington National Cemetery. Before the trip, Browning had the students research the names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and write a letter or poem to that person. When they visited, the students could leave what they had written on the wall for that person. According to Browning, the students were able to tour the Pentagon and that was a highlight for some of the students. During the trip, the students visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the Arlington National Cemetery and it was a hit with the 8thgraders. Browning had all 17 of her students make a wreath for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Only four were allowed to participate in the laying of the wreath ceremony, according to the rules dictated by the Arlington National Cemetery and the principal of Madison Academy chose the four. A former tomb guard spoke with the students about how it was a huge honor to guard the tomb but the guards have to live a clean life so as to not dishonor the Unknown Soldier. I enjoyed that and the kids did as well, said Browning. It made a huge impact. They also visited the United States Institute of Peace, which is an independent, nonpartisan institution established and funded by Congress to increase the nations capacity to manage international conflict without violence. The students did different workshops that covered team building, such as conflict resolution and role-playing so that the students could see a different way of resolving conflict without violence. The white weather in Washington D.C., when they arrived, allowed the students to ice skate and play in the snow. According to Browning, the students had a lot of fun. On their way to Philadelphia, Pa., they stopped at Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Md. This is where Francis Scott Key, witnessed the attack on Fort McHenry and upon seeing the American flag still flying the next morning, he wrote The Star-Spangled Banner. This year will be the 200thanniversary of the Battle of Baltimore. While in Philadelphia, the students visited The National Constitution Center, which is the first-ever museum dedicated to the U.S. Constitution. They also visited Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution was signed, and the Liberty Bell, which is next to Independence Hall. They also visited the U.S. Mint, where the students could learn about how coins are made and the Franklin Institute, which is a hands-on science museum. A lot of the kids liked the hands-on museum and the fort was a big hit, said Browning.
