89 year old Esther Bejarano has a story. It was not until the 1970s that she decided to tell her story. Her revelation began with her membership with the Association of the Persecutors of the Nazi Regime. She began to speak at schools. She joined two bands, singing Jewish resistance and antiwar songs with her children. She delivered protest speeches at neo-Nazi marches. A recurring nightmare of being trampled by Nazi soldiers boots finally ceased. I freed myself, inwardly, she said. Mrs. Bejarano is one of the last surviving members of the Auschwitz Girls Orchestra, the only all-female ensemble among the many Nazi-run prisoner musical groups in the camp system. Among other duties, the Girls Orchestra was responsible for playing the marches that imprisoned women had to keep step to as they went out to work in the morning and, even more cruelly, as they returned, half-dead, at the end of the day. Five years ago, hoping to reach more young people with her story and her message of tolerance and antifascism, Mrs. Bejarano teamed up with a band. The music combines songs like the poignant Yiddish resistance song, Well Live Forever, composed in the Nazi-run Jewish ghetto in Vilna just before it was liquidated, and more contemporary, because lessons of the Holocaust still need to be learned. Mrs. Bejarano was born Esther Loewy in Saarlouis, in what is now southwestern Germany, in 1924. Her parents had met in Berlin as teenagers, when her father was hired as a piano teacher for her mother, and the two fell in love. Hitlers rise to power put an end to what Mrs. Bejarano described to the New York Times, of June 28, 2014, as a lighthearted childhood. By the time she was 16, she was separated from her family and interned in a Nazi work camp outside Berlin. Her parents, she learned later, were deported the same year to Riga, Latvia, where they were shot. In 1943, she was deported to AuschwitzBirkenau. Her hair was cut off, and she was tattooed and forced to do backbreaking labor. For extra food, she sometimes sang songs by Schubert, Bach or Mozart for barracks leaders. The Nazis regarded camp orchestras as status symbols, and within a month of her arrival in Auschwitz, Maria Mandl, the SS commander in charge of the womens camp, decided that she, too, wanted one. In addition to entertaining SS officers with popular ditties or classical selections, the Girls Orchestra also had to play for new detainees arriving for the gas chambers. Often, people smiled and waved at the musicians. They must have thought, where music is playing, things cant be that bad, Mrs. Bejarano said. They didnt know where they were going. But we knew. We played with tears in our eyes. Who is a hero? The survivor! The ones who survive and get to tell the tale. Much is happening in this country. Patriots are under attack. When youre in the middle of it, like Mrs. Bejarano, you dont know how itll turn out. What about us? How will we stack up against this Hero? Where do our beliefs come from? We would all like to think that we believe certain things because they are correct. If we thought they were wrong, obviously we would change what we believe. The problem lies in that most of our beliefs spawn from someone elses opinion. This is true whether it comes from our parents and upbringing, or has evolved since then. It is usually a combination of childhood and experiences. Our beliefs pattern themselves early, but they continually evolve and change throughout our entire life. When we listen to someone else, their beliefs are put into their words, and thereby temper what you believe. There is no such thing as truly objective. No matter how hard we try, nothing we say or write cannot be affected by what we believe. When you read someone elses report, or hear them speak or preach, you are not really hearing or reading the truth per se, but rather their truth as they see it. Most of the items which we believe we have studied are really simply that we have listened to someones opinion of someone elses opinion of someone elses interpretation. The politician that denounces the scientist prob ably did not even read the scientific report. The politician that knocks the scientist did not read the scientists report. At best he had an aide do it. At worst, the aide read another politicians report on it. Ever play the kindergarten whisper game? Perhaps even worse than that is the fact that if something is repeated enough times, it becomes the truth. Why do you think they replay commercials over and over and over, ad nauseam? Its because the more you hear that their product is the best, you become to believe it. Weve known for decades that Columbus was not the first European to settle in the Americas. The Vikings and Celts had established trade routes into the Gulf of Mexico for at least two hundred years prior to Columbus. America was not named after Amerigo Vespucci, but in fact after those same Vikings legendary hero / god Meric and his land across the sea, merica. But you have heard those old stories so many times it has become truth to you. Most people believe concepts in society because of who said them without ever actually looking. If the political party (or religious group) that you like says so, it must be true. We believe that without looking into it further, or worse we simply read more of their propaganda, and believe we are reading actual facts. I cannot count the times someone has told me, Well, its in the Bible. And when I respond with, Really? Where? They had no idea it wasnt. They have simple heard that enough times, they came to believe it and repeat it. No one who has ever studied the actual facts about global warming has ever said it is not true causes and cures may be debatable, but the warming itself is real. No one who has ever studied the actual facts about medical marijuana would say that it is not a much better drug, medically speaking, than anything currently in existence control and monitoring may be debatable, but increased efficacy with a much lower side effect profile is obvious. No one that has looked at the facts of GMOd and medically altered food would say that it is not harmful long term the cure is hugely debatable, but the damage is not. None of us can be an expert on everything. None of us can research the raw facts of each and every topic before forming an opinion, or speaking out, or voting. To some extent we always have to look at the opinions of others for direction. We read reports and stories, or listen to politicians or preachers or other professionals, and we instill in them a lot of faith and trust that what we are getting is not overly biased by their opinion. Part of what is important is to look at why that person, or company, or party, or group would want you to believe them. The politicians obviously want you to believe their stance because they want you to vote for them. The drug companies obviously want you to buy their latest and greatest synthetic control substance rather than listen to a doctor tell you he can cure you with diet changes and natural substances. An advocate for a cause obviously wants you to jump on their bandwagon. What you believe is up to you. What you base those beliefs upon is also up to you. If you are not going to check out the facts, at least consider who is doing the talking. Think about it.Viewpoints & Opinions2A Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, July 25, 2014 Conservative Corner Conservative Corner By Nelson A. Pryor, Lee, Fl.

All submitted letters must be 600 words or less 24thAnniversary Of Americans With Disabilities Act This month marks the 24thanniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Its a civil rights law that seeks to eliminate discrimination against people based on their disability. The ADA applies to discrimination in employment, state and local government services, privately operated public accommodations, transportation and telecommunications. The Arc Big Band and The Arc of Florida, non-prot organizations that advocate on behalf of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), have seen positive changes in these areas since the ADA was signed into law in 1990. Just a few years before its passage, many Floridians with I/DD were institutionalized. Today, many are living and working in their community. While great strides have been made in our society, discrimination still exists. Attitudes, poor enforcement of the law, underfunded programs and scal difculties in state and local government budgets all contribute to the on-going need to be vigilant advocates for full inclusion and equality. There are still issues here in Florida. In 1999, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a landmark case Olmstead v. L.C. that unnecessary segregation of individuals with disabilities in institutions is a form of discrimination. Despite this, our state continues to house some individuals with I/DD in institutions and children in nursing homes. We hope our elected leaders will work to fund additional community-based programs, ensuring that all Floridians are treated equally and able to live in the community, where they belong.

Melt The Butter; Spiny Lobster Seasons Start SoonStory SubmittedThe 2014 spiny lobster season opens with the two-day recreational sport season July 30 and 31, followed by the regular commercial and recreational lobster season, which starts Aug. 6 and runs through March 31. Planning on catching some of these tasty crustaceans? Here is what you need to know before you go. No one wants a small lobster for dinner. Make sure you check the size. Measuring devices are required, and lobsters must be measured while they are in the water. If the carapace length is not larger than three inches, it must be left in the water. To protect the next generation and your future chances to have lobster for dinner, harvest of egg-bearing females is prohibited. Lobsters have hundreds of thousands of eggs that are easily visible and attached under the tail. While most lobsters have completed reproduction by the start of the shing season, nding lobsters with eggs is common in July and August. Bring a cooler big enough to hold the entire lobster. Spiny lobsters must remain in whole condition until they are brought to shore. Also, do not take spiny lobster with any device that might puncture, penetrate or crush its shell. Stick to the bag and possession limits so there will be enough lobsters for all your friends and family. During the two-day spiny lobster sport season, recreational divers and snorkelers can take up to six lobsters per person daily in Monroe County and Biscayne National Park waters and 12 lobsters per person daily in other Florida waters. You may possess no more than the daily bag limit of lobsters when you are on the water. When you are off the water, you may possess no more than the daily bag limit on the rst day of the sport season and no more than double the daily bag limit on the second day. See the chart for an easy-toread guide on the two-day sport season bag limits. During the Aug. 6 to March 31 regular season, the daily recreational bag and on-the-water possession limit is six spiny lobsters per person.
By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Steve Green, co-owner and one of the funeral directors for the new location of the Joe P. Burns Funeral Home on Lake Francis, has announced an open house for the facility on Tuesday, Aug. 12, beginning with a ribbon cutting at noon. Everyone is invited. Then, from 1 to 7 p.m., there will be the Open House. People can drop by any time that is convenient for them, for tours of the facility, refreshments, and a chance to ask questions or just chat with the owners Steve Green and Tommy Murrow, and Family Service/Pre-Need Counselor Karen Welch. At 7 p.m., they will hold the dedication service for their new chapel, and Brother Steve McHargue will be the guest speaker for the ceremony. Green's family comes from the Lee area of Madison County, and he has always wanted to come back home to Madison, which he calls a special place for me. He still has family in Lee, especially the Tooles and the Welches, and recently took his 88year-old-grandfather, L.M. Green, on a tour of the new facility. I'd like for people to come by the Open House and get to know us, he said. I'm looking forward to meeting them.Around Madison County6A Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, July 25, 2014 Imagine driving a car without a basic understanding of the rules of the road, or even how to operate it? Scary thought. Yet many Americans are operating their personal finances with only the barest minimum of knowledge. When asked five basic questions about finances and the markets, 61% of American got 3 or fewer correct. Only 39% got four or more correct. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau found that approximately $670 million is spent each year on financial education by public, private and non-profit sectors. Now this may sound like a sizeable sum until you realize that it translates to a little more than $2 per U.S. citizen, per year. For perspective, the financial services industry spends about $17 billion each year to market products and services to Americans. It has been said that knowledge is power, and if thats true, then too many Americans lack the power to control their financial futures. Success rarely comes accidentally; it is the culmination of a journey whose first steps are in education. One of the obstacles to increasing the financial knowledge is what might be called the Lake Wobegon effect, the idea that we all consider ourselves above average. It is a self-assessment that keeps many from learning as much as they need to. But whatever your knowledge level may be, it should be recognized that an ever-evolving financial landscape puts a premium on continual learning. There is a wide range of resources for individuals who understand that the more informed they are, the better the decisions they can make.

This year, Lions Club President Tim Dunn told the club, the new theme from the Lions Club International is Strengthen the Pride. The Year of the Pride will be a time of building the ranks by adding new club members and then doing what the club has always done going out into the community and helping others. The more Lions Club members there are, the more they can accomplish. He then went on to relate a brief history of how the Lions began and how it grew into what it is today. The Lions Club International is the largest service club organization in the world, with more than 1.35 million members in 46,000 clubs in 200 countries around the world. Founded in 1917 in Chicago as a businessmen's club, it soon became a service club, after the members met an extraordinary individual named Helen Keller. Since then, with the motto We Serve, the Lions Club International has become best known for ghting blindness by conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicines and raising awareness of eye disease. Through the Lions Club International foundation, the organization has helped provide more than 153 million treatments for river blindness and 72 million doses of sight-saving trachoma medications through the SightFirst program and providing vision screenings for 19 million children through the Sight For Kids. Although the clubs are best known for their focus on preserving eyesight, they also feed the hungry, aid seniors and the disabled, and care for the environment through community projects. The Lions Club International also has a number of youth programs, including youth camps, Lions Quest and Leo Clubs in high schools. Dunn expressed interest in starting a Leo Club in Madison as one of this year's youth service goals. He also related some updated gures from the 4thof July God and Country Celebration, noting that after expenses were paid, there was still more than enough to fund scholarships to NFCC and St. Leo University, leaving a large balance to go toward other community projects. We helped out three families last year, said Dunn. This year, I'd like for it to be six." Overall, the 4thof July had exceeded expectations. It was a pretty good success, he said. And it wouldn't have been possible without all of you. News of the funds raised that day, especially by the Fun Run and the 5K Run segments, had members discussing more races in the future, possibly around Halloween, with a costumed or zombie fun run, or maybe a turkey trot run closer to Thanksgiving. Meanwhile it was time to start planning for the annual Lions Club Turkey Shoot. This year, the three-weekend event has been moved up to October, taking place the three Saturdays before Halloween, so as not to compete with deer hunting season. For those who enjoy shooting and can hardly wait until November, the Turkey Shoot will be a great chance to enjoy competitive, fun target shooting without having to wait for hunting season. For more details as they unfold, stay tuned. Serious planning for this event will start in August. Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Lynette Norris, July 15, 2014Lions Club President Tim Dunn, pleased with the nal results of the 4thof July Celebration, talks about his goal of having the club help more families this year. Next up: time to start planning for the Turkey Shoot and maybe even another Fun Run or two during the fall. Delta Kappa Gamma Awards ScholarshipStory SubmittedThe Gamma Theta Chapter of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International would like to congratulate Taylor Sever, a graduate of Madison County High School, for being selected to receive its $500 scholarship for 2014. Sever is the daughter of Kenneth and Judy Sever of Greenville and has two younger sisters. She is the rst in her family to graduate from high school and will be the rst to attend college. She hopes to help her sisters understand that education is the key to a bright future. I want to show them that even though it's rough, we can still make it with a little encouragement and perseverance, said Sever. While in high school, Sever was a member of the marching, concert and jazz bands, as well as participating in solo and ensemble events. Sever plans on attending North Florida Community College to get her Associate of Arts degree and will then transfer to Florida State University to pursue her Bachelor of Science degree in Education. She states that she wants to become a high school teacher because she loves helping others learn something. Knowing I've contributed to future adults, and succeeded, makes me feel like I've served a purpose as a role model to those who need help, said Sever. She also wants to incorporate music into teaching by showing that music has its own qualities. It's not just for show, said Sever. It can be used to unlock ways inside a brain to help someone think better and to relax. The ladies of Delta Kappa Gamma wish Taylor much success in her pursuit of a career in education.

Around Madison County8A Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, July 25, 2014 Pioneers Of Madison County:Silas Coker (1790-1841) Written By The Madison County Genealogical SocietyWith just a few Cokers left in Madison County, one would hardly know how early the Cokers arrived and what a serious impact the Coker family has had on the county. Silas came to the county in the late 1820s with his wife, Ann and six children: Daniel D. (18031886), who married Nancy Eunice Taylor in Madison. Daniel and Nancy and most of their children were buried in the Coker Cemetery in Limestone, Hardee County, Florida, Wesley A., Bryant, Daniel Julius, Isham T. and Laura Ann. It is unknown what happened to Nancy, if there was a Nancy (Daniel was the only child born in South Carolina); Jonathan, (born 1805) who married Nancy (we believe he later married Mary Serene Hicks in Madison County); John, (born 1812) who married Elvia Elizabeth Hankins in Madison County (she appears to have been known as Betsy Ann); James Allen, (born 1814), who married Mary Catlett in Madison County; Nathan, (born 1823) who married Margaret Easters in Madison County and served in the First Florida Cow Cavalry, Co. A; and Silas (1827-1918) who married Eliza Whitehurst in Jefferson County and served in the Old First Florida Infantry, Co. I (Silas was wounded at Perrville on Oct. 8, 1862 and furloughed. He returned in early 1863 and was wounded in the right shoulder in mid 1864 and hospitalized until he was furloughed on Aug. 13, 1864. He was paroled on May 18, 1865 in Tallahassee.) Three more children were born after Silas and Ann arrived in the county (there is some discussion that these three might have been nephews of Cylus Coker): Arthur D. (18301865), who married Patience Patsy Pridgeon in Madison County (Served in the Second Florida (US) Cavalry, Co. F, was raised in Madison County and farmed in Lafayette Co. during the war. He moved his family to Key West and then enlisted at Key West, as a refugee from the Confederacy. He died of scurvy at Cedar Key); Michael, ( born about 1830) and Elvina (born 1834). Michael and Elvina were the only children born in Madison, the others were born in Georgia. The Coker family arrived, as many early pioneers did, from South Carolina, with a detour through Georgia. On the 1930 census, Silas and his family were one of only 44 families who lived in the Madison, Taylor and Lafayette area. The May 1831 election for the territorial delegate to Congress was held at the homes of Dennis Hankins and Silas Coker. Silas's precinct was probably located in the South West area of Madison County. Feb. 10, 1835, Silas was appointed as a Justice of the Peace. In 1856, Taylor and Lafayette Counties were split from Madison County. The Coker families seemed to live right around the area that was divided, so some of the families, in the 1860 census, were residents of Taylor County, some lived in Lafayette County, and a few remained in Madison County. In 1860, Daniel D. was in Madison County; Jonathan died around 1852 and it appears that his son James lived in Taylor County; John, James Allen, and Nathan were in Taylor County; and Arthur D. was in Lafayette County. According to an old Coker family Bible, Daniel D. married Nancy Eunice Nicey Taylor in Madison County and they remained here until around 1878, when they moved to Manatee County. Daniel served as a private during the Seminole Indian War between 1838 and 1840. During the Civil War, three of his sons, Isham, Bryant and Daniel were members of Co. I," 2ndFlorida Cavalry. Daniel, Nicey and their daughter, Unity (or Nicy) was living at Moseley Hall outside of Madison in 1870. On February 7, 1878, Daniel and Nicey sold their land to Burrell H. Bailey and moved to South Florida settling in Manatee County prior to 1880. Daniel died January 26, 1886 and was buried in the Coker Cemetery in DeSoto County. Nicey made her will in DeSoto County in 1889 and died in August 1891. She was also buried in the Coker Cemetery in DeSoto County. Although John Coker (third son of Silas Coker) and Elvia Elizabeth Hankins, and most of their children appeared to live in the Taylor County area, John Thomas, ninth child of John and Elvia remained in Madison County and was buried in the Redding Cemetery, Madison County. John Thomas married Susan A. Triplett (daughter of David Triplett and Elizabeth Hingson and granddaughter of Elijah Eli Triplett and Elizabeth Cone). John Thomas and Susan had six children. 1. Rufus Washington (1884-1972) married Efe Rebecca Noble and had two children: Efe Othelia and Leroy. Rufus and Efe are buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Greenville. 2. Theodore (1886-1965) married Susie Bass and had two children: Lloyd Reed and Lonnie; Theodore and Susie are also buried in Evergreen Cemetery. Their descendents still live in the Greenville area. 3. James David (1888-1920) married Rebecca King and had four children: Guy Thomas, John Elmer, Thelma and David Hazel. Their children lived in Jacksonville, Fort Pierce, Perry and Tallahassee. James and Rebecca are also buried in Evergreen Cemetery. 4. Elli Cordelia (1889-1911), married Elias D. Nobles and had three children; Elli died in Brooks County. 5. Mamie (1891-1915); and 6. Ida (1894). By 1872, Silas Coker, Madison Pioneer, had 173 descendants. Today, many more Cokers reside in the area, throughout Florida and Georgia, descendants of Silas and his sons.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Madison Enterprise-Recorder Friday, July 25, 2014 3B Homeowners Guide Homestead Tax Exemptions Available for Past and Present Military Members By Jessie R. Box Greene Publishing, Inc.Active duty military and veterans may qualify for homestead tax exemptions in Florida if certain criterias are met. There are four options available for the active duty military and veterans. Under Florida Statutes Section 196.24, any ex-service member who was honorably discharged, is a resident of Florida and who has been disabled to a degree of 10 percent or more by misfortune or while serving during wartime may be entitled to a $5,000 property tax exemption. This exemption is not limited to homestead property. Under certain circumstances, the veterans surviving spouse may be entitled to carry over the exemption. Form DR-501 is available on the Florida Department of Revenue website. Under Florida Statutes Sections 196.081 and 196.091, veterans who are Florida residents and were honorably discharged with a service related total and permanent disability may be eligible for a total exemption from taxes on property they own and use as their homestead. There is a similar exemption that applies to veterans confined to a wheelchair. Form DR-501 is available on the Florida Department of Revenue website. Under Florida Statutes section 196.082, if certain requirements are met, veterans 65 or older who are partially or totally permanently disabled may receive a discount from tax on property that the veteran owns and uses as a homestead. The discount is a percentage equal to the percentage of the veterans permanent, service connected disability as determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. Form DR-501 is available on the Florida Department of Revenue website. Under Florida Statutes Section 196.173, a member or former member of any branch of the United States military or military reserves, the United States Coast Guard or its reserves, or the Florida National Guard may receive an exemption if he or she was deployed during the previous calendar year outside the continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii in support of a designated operation. The percent of the taxable value that is exempt for the current year is determined by the percent of time during the previous year when the service member was deployed on a designated operation. Form DR-501M is available on the Florida Department of Revenue website. More information about available tax exemptions is available from The Florida Department of Revenue website athttp://dor.myflorida.com/dor/.
CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 4B Homeowners Guide Madison Enterprise-Recorder Friday, July 25, 2014 Termites And Dead Trees: Protecting Your Home By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.That dead tree in the back yard, that one that was hit by lightening a couple of years back, really needs to go. But because it is leaning away from the house and isn't going to fall on anything important, the homeowner has let it be for a while. After all, cutting down a tree and hauling away the cut-up pieces is a major chore, and if the tree is really, really big, it might require a professional tree service. So, the tree stays around for awhile, until the bark starts falling off. Then, the homeowner decides its time to take a deep breath, grab the chainsaw and cut that sucker down. What he finds when he knocks away a section of the bark is a unpleasant surprise the tree has become home to a colony of termites, just a few steps from his back door. Removal of dead trees and even stumps in your yard is one of the ways you can lower your home's risk of termite infestation. Subterranean termites are the most common type of termites in the United States. Pale, white and squishy, their bodies are mostly water and they need lots of moisture to survive, so they live either underground or close to the ground, typically nesting in the soil near a food source such as a dead tree. Or, they may build a series of nests, all interconnected with a network of narrow tunnels. They can also tunnel through the soil for very long distances, sometimes hundreds of feet, in order to reach a new food source. Cellulose, especially wood, is their main food. In a natural setting, they will feed on roots, stumps and dead trees. They prefer the partially rotted wood of a dead tree to the timber in a home; any wood mulch used in landscaping around the the home's perimeter is like an all-you-can-eat termite buffet. Wood mulch can draw them in just like dead trees and stumps left in the yard. Next on their list of preference is any wooden part of the home that is close to the soil. To reach it, they will construct mud tubes up the side of the foundation, and once they reach the wood, they'll start excavating their tunnels in it. They may also carry soil up to line the tunnels as they work their way through the wood, following the framework of the house all the way up to its upper levels, lining their tunnels along the way with damp soil to preserve their moisture needs (which also contributes to damp rot in the wood). They will also tunnel through materials they can't eat, such as foam or plasterboard, in order to reach the wood on the other side. Determined little buggers, aren't they? Termites are the most economically ruinous wood-destroying organisms in the U.S., according to the Ohio State University's Department of Entomology, and a home is often the homeowner's single largest investment. Fortunately, there are a number of costeffective methods homeowners can use to lower their home's risk of infestation, by disrupting the termite's ability to find food, moisture and shelter near their homes. WOOD: If there is any wood in contact with the soil around your home, that is like an all-night diner for termites. To alleviate the problem: Keep all wooden parts of the house at least six inches above the soil line. Keep mulch levels several inches below the siding and wooden parts of the structure, or better yet, avoid using wood mulch next to the foundation. Consider rubber or other synthetic mulch. Remove dead trees stumps and roots near your home and in your yard. If you find termites in one, don't panic. Following up with a home termite inspection with a trust...Story Continued On 5B...
CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Homeowners Guide Madison Enterprise-Recorder Fri day, July 25, 2014 5B Termites And Dead Trees Continued From Page 4B ed, reputable company is your best bet. Don't put it off too long. If you have termites, you'll catch them before they can go any further; if you don't find any, you can heave a sigh of relief. Never store firewood, lumber or paper against the foundation, or in the crawlspace. Remove wood debris from around the house and yard. Remove form boards from around con crete structures like paths and walkways once they are dry. WATER: If moisture accumulates around or near the foundation of your home, it provides the water needed for the termite's survival. To alleviate this problem: Grade or slope the soil away from the foundation. Divert rainwater away from the foundation with gutters, downspouts, downspout extenders or drain tiles. Aim water sprinklers away from the foundation. Promptly repair all leaking faucets, water pipes and air-conditioning units. Use mulch sparingly and keep all plants and ground covers three to four feet away from the house. If moisture is accumulating in the crawlspace: Put a vapor barrier on the ground under the house. Install vent openings in the crawlspace, using one square foot of opening for 300 to 500 square feet of crawlspace if you have a vapor barrier, or one square foot of opening for every 150 feet of crawlspace if you don't. Prevent vegetation from covering the vents. Termites use hidden routes of access into your home, so make sure any trellises, planters or shrubs don't touch your house. Regularly inspect cracks in any concrete slabs or joints for termite activity. Remove any mulch that contacts the siding or obscures a clear view of your home's foundation and never install foam board insulation below grade. Every year, check around your home and make sure that water is still flowing away from your foundation, that any wood, mulch or other cellulose is well away from your foundation, that you have a clear view of the foundation all the way around the house, and that the basement or crawlspace is still relatively dry. And finally, cut down those dead trees.

Homeowners Guide Madison Enterprise-Recorder Fr iday, July 25, 2014 7B Plumbing Fixes: DIY Or Call The Plumber? By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.When U.S. home inspectors compiled a list of the top ten problems most frequently faced by homeowners, four had to do with the damaging effects of water: improper ground surface grading and drainage; damage from leaking roofs; poor ventilation resulting in too much interior humidity (an open door for mold and mildew) and plumbing issues. While the first three can be expensive or labor intensive or both, and often require hiring professionals, many problems with plumbing, especially small ones, can be easily fixed by homeowners. With plumbing, think of the adage about an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure. Yes, it's old as the hills, but it's particularly apropos with plumbing. A regular schedule of inspecting all the pipes, sinks and other plumbing fixtures in your house will go a long way toward spotting small problems before they turn into major disasters. Set up a schedule you can keep once a week is ideal, but few people prob ably have time for that. Try to make it at least once a month. Mark it off on a calendar, on the refrigerator or some other easily visible place as a reminder. What To Look For: Check all the exposed pipes in the house, including the pipes under the sinks and behind the toilets, for signs of moisture. Condensation on metal pipes is normal during warm, humid weather, so check during cooler weather as well. Look for signs of oxidation (rust) around brass or copper fittings, or mold/mildew on undersides of sinks, especially around the drain fittings. Check the contents of under-sink vanities in the bathroom and under-sink cabinets in the kitchen for dampness. If the pipes appear to be leaking at the joints, try tightening them and using a sealant. If the pipes have holes, buy a new pipe. Repairs just don't work with holes; you'll have to take out the old pipe and replace it with the new one. Have plenty of towels or a bucket ready to catch the water in the trap, or if the pipe is a water supply line, make sure you shut off the water valve first. Whether or not you do it yourself or call a plumber depends on how confident you are in your abilities, or whether or not you have the time, or whether or not you want to deal with it. Turn on the shower to check the drain. Draw some water into all the sinks to see if the drain is working or if it's running a little slow. Slow drains can mean a clog building up. The tool of choice for dealing with most sink and shower clogs is a Zipit (available at Walmart or most hardware stores), a long, thin, flexible white plastic stick (works like a plumber's snake) with ...Story Continued On 11B...

If the children are still at home, or if the family downsized after the children left the nest, or if the elderly parents or grandparents just need the extra room (in most cases, the families may add a bedroom and bathroom, or perhaps even a small kitchen. It all depends on what accommodations they need, can afford or want to provide. Or, as allowed in the county, they may apply for permission to add a mobile home to their property to house elderly parents). Any additions or improvements, will, of course, increase the value of the home, and in turn increase the ad valorum property tax due. To help owners of a homesteaded property in this situation, Madison County has an ordinance on the books that allows for a temporary tax exemption for a new addition to a home to accommodate elderly biological or adoptive parents, grandparents or inlaws, as long as at least one of the elderly couple is 62 or older, and for as long as they live in the new addition. Madison first adopted this exemption, Ordinance No. 2003-131, in November of 2003. It became effective Jan. 1, 2004, and it provides tax relief on the ad valorum property tax value that would normally be assessed for improvement to the property, for as long as the elderly parent or parents are living in the new quarters; in other words, it is temporary, and once the elderly parents/grandparents pass away, the exemption will no longer apply. Any additional square footage and improvements added to the house will be once again taxed with the rest of the house. If the property is in the county, where a mobile home has been added for elderly parents, homeowners will not be taxed on the mobile home while the seniors are living there, but once they pass, the exemption goes away as well. This exemption is not retroactive and cannot be applied to any improvements made or construction done in earlier years after the exemption passed. The rules apply only to new construction, and it must be on homesteaded property. The construction must be properly permitted and must comply with all local land development regulations. Copies of all permits, the certificate of occupancy, and plans must be submitted to ...Story Continued On 9B...
CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Homeowners Guide Madison Enterprise-Recorder Frid ay, July 25, 2014 9B Property Appraiser Leigh Barfield's office. The construction must be completed no later than Jan. 1 of the year in which the exemption is requested. For example, if you want to apply for the granny tax exemption on any addition for your parents or grandparents that you are working on right now, that construction must be finished and the elderly relatives moved in and permanently residing there no later than Jan. 1, 2015, the first year for which you can apply for the exemption. You must file for that exemption (along with any other exemptions you may be entitled to) no later than March 1, 2015. You must file for this exemption every year. It is not automatically renewable, and you must file each year by the March 1 deadline. The amount of the tax reduction will be either A) the amount of increase in the assessed value of the home that results from the new construction, or B) 20 percent of the new total assessed value of the home, whichever is less. Homeowners who are considering new additions for elderly parents or grandparents and who have any questions, either about the granny tax exemption or any other tax exemptions they may be entitled to, are encouraged to call Madison County Property Appraiser Leigh Barfield's Office at (850) 973-6133, or stop by her office on the second floor of the Courthouse Annex.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 10B Homeowners Guide Madison Enterprise-Recorder Friday, July 25, 2014 Water And Sewer Impact Fees Now Being Implemented By Jessie R. Box Greene Publishing, Inc. The City had a temporary moratorium on impact fees for the water and sewer systems and at the meeting on Tuesday, July 8 at 5:30 p.m., the commissioners had a proposal to continue the temporary moratorium but it died for a lack of a second. Impact fees are onetime charges for a new connection to the water or sewer system. As of now, the City of Madison residents will pay an impact fee when they connect to the water or sewer system. City Manager Tim Bennett and City Attorney Clay Schnitker will look at the data and present the commissioners with a new impact fee. During the Water and Wastewater Rates and Impact Fee presentation by Sterling Carroll from the Florida Rural Water Association, at the meeting on Tuesday, June 24, it was recommended that $1,075 be charged for the water impact fee and $2,500 be charged for the sewer impact fee.
what looks like rows of teeth along the edges. Remove the drain filter in the shower, or take the pop-up drain out of the sink by unscrewing the nut connected to the drain below the sink, slide the Zipit down the drain and pull out whatever is clogging the pipe. It helps if you're not too squeamish and have a plastic bag or bucket on hand for whatever you pull up. Liquid drain cleaners don't work 100 percent of the time, and they contain toxic chemicals. This is especially important to note if you're on a septic tank. When it comes to your kitchen sink drain, once you have it cleared, keep it clear with drain filters, available at most hardware or plumbing supply stores (they look like bits of domed window screen in circular rims that fit your drains). Don't pour lard or grease into your sink, and once a week, pour a little boiling water down the drains to melt away any grease that has managed to get down there. If your faucets have aerators and the water pressure seems slow when you turn them on, unscrew the aerators and check them. Calcium deposits or other debris can clog the aerator holes. Clean away the debris and put them back on your faucets. If the aerators themselves are damaged, take them to your hardware store and get the right-sized replacements. Flush your toilets to see if they're working properly. If they're slow, there may be a clog building up. Use the plunger to dislodge the clog. As you flush, check around the base of the toilet for water leaking out. This can mean a faulty or worn wax seal that needs replacing. Sometimes, the leak might be just below the floor level where you can't see the water, so look for darkening linoleum or other changes in the color of the floor covering around the toilet base...especially if it appears to be spreading slowly outward. Don't let this go too long, or you'll be dealing with damaged flooring in addition to a leaky toilet. As for replacing the wax seal, this is something most homeowners can do, but it requires help to lift a toilet off the floor and put it back. If you are confident in your ability to do that and make sure the toilet is firmly seated on the floor and level, this can be a DIY project. On the other hand, it can be a tedious backbreaker and it's hard to manage alone. In that case, you may find it worth the investment to call a plumber. If the toilet runs constantly, check the toilet tank and make sure the ball-and-flapper or other types of flush assemblies are working properly. If they need replacement, these assemblies come in kits at homeimprovement stores. If your faucets are leaking, the problem could be worn out washers or o-rings. It's a simple fix, and something that shouldn't be allowed to go on too long, especially if it's the hot water tap. You'll be wasting not only the water, but the energy required to heat that water. Shut off the water supply valve, disassemble the faucet and take the washers or o-rings to the store to make sure you get the correct sized replacements. Some experts say that lubricating your faucet parts with petroleum jelly will make them last longer. For more simple plumbing fixes you can do on your own, check out DIY websites such as How-StuffWorks.com, or look over DIY project books that deal with plumbing issues at most home improvement stores.
