Runaway Arrestedl


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Deputy Josh Harris ar-
rested a teenage girl, who
was reported as a runaway
from Hamilton County on
Monday, July 24.
According to the Madi-
son County Sheriff's' Office,
Kimberly Morgan Rye was'
arrested for burglarizing a
church youth center in Lee.
The Department of Juve-
' nile Justice returned Rye to
Hamilton County, where she
may face more charges.
Rye had run away in
February. A statewide Amber
Alert was issued for her at
that time before she returned

Florida Annual Conference of the United
Methodist Church, terminated Craig's
employment with the two churches he
was serving. Craig, who was ordained in
another denomination, was intending to
. pursue a relationship with the UMC and
was serving both churches as a 'supply
pastor. According to Rich Quackenbush,
pastor of Lee United Methodist Church,
"Supply pastors are appointed in essence
from week to week and do not have a
. permanent relationship .with the United
Methodist Conference."
The Conference responded to
Craig's arrest with the following state-
ment: "While the Conference cares about
and is deeply concerned for Mr. Craig
and his family, it is inappropriate, for a
minister of another denomination who
has been charged with these serious alle-
gations to serve in the United Methodist
Church."

Referendum To Allow A Half-Cent Local

Sales Tax To Be On Sept. 5th Ballot


Bill Sefu


The Madison County Commission voted to direct County
Attorney Tom Reeves and Madison County Memorial Hospital
Cary Hardee to place a referendum on either the September 5th
ballot or November 7th ballot. The referendum will allow for a
half-cent of the local option sales tax to go toward constructing
* a new hospital in Madison County.
On Thursday, July 20, the Madison County Democratic Ex-


ecutive Committee endorsed the commission's decision to
place the issue before the voters of Madison County. The Madi-
son County DEC supports taking action to improve health care
options for the people of Madison County.

Sincerely,
: Jim Catron, Chair


Sales Tax For New Hospital


Memo to Commissioners: Your vote 7/20/06 to put on the
ballot .a ? cent tax for a new Madison County hospital is the right
action at an unfortunate time. Commissioner Moore's is right
that we might look to Perry's success in approving a hospital
tax. But Perry was not losing Buckeye when their hospital tax
was voted in. Smithfield's closing could affect a vote to in-
crease the-sales tax here.
Another problem is that people will realize we already pay
an extra 7th cent sales tax. After the new jail was paid for, there
was no vote of the people to keep on taxing ourselves one cent
more than the.6. the state requires. The County Commission
vote to keep the extra tax fdr 1-10 development and budget help'
was hardly noted by the public. .
It's serious if we don't vote FOR the added extra sales tax,
for no state grant nor foundation grant would support a hospital
here if we don't want it. Steps to help guarantee passage of the
hospital tax:
(1) Re-work the budget in planning sessions this month.and
dedicate ? cent of the sales tax we already pay to the hospital
fund. We have continued to pay an extra penny above the 6%
the state requires although the new jail was paid for. Instead of


Neal


using ? of that extra penny to pay for I-10, cut back to ? cent and
adjust the short term borrowing for 1-10 construction costs.
Wal-Mart \ ants to be in the city of Madison and there is no line-
up of businesses to locate at-our 1-10 interchanges. Our priority
is the hospital.
(2) Donate a percentage of your commission income to the
hospital fund as support by county government leaders. Con-
stitutional officers who want to be re-elected will follow your
example.
(2) Help enlist civic groups, as well as all churches in your
district, to pledge financial support.Madison's millionaires are
generous for community causes and will be so for the hospital.
Voters need to hear donation amounts before the vote, as during
the campaign for United Way.
Putting 1/4 cent of our 7th cent sales tax now into the hos-
pital fund will guarantee a start of.the hospital fund and en-
courage voters to increase our sales tax. Donors will respect us
and support the hospital. When the ballot issue is approved, ? of
a cent of the new 7and ? cent sales tax goes into the hospital
fund. We can guarantee success for our hospital..

the dream a reality.,
Neal plans to get a number
of NFL payers involved in..th.e.
process.
"Funding is the key deter-
minant in the success of the
project," Neal said.,
He said that he is also
seeking sponsors for the pro-
ject.
The proposed recreation
park will be separate from any
other recreation park in the
Madison area.

We're Sleeping Late
Have you forgotten where you left your alarm clock?
Gatepost has. Well, actually, it fell off a table and lost a battery. We
haven't replaced it yet. After all, we don't have to be anyplace in
the early A.M. right now. Hope you're enjoying your late morn-
ings.
Stannon McCreary gave up his' late snoozing. He loped off
last week and joined the Marines. Godspeed, young man.
Jimmy and Martha Register spent several days in St. Augus-
tine with a reunion of her family. They're back, relaxed and re-
freshed.
Gatepost is back, too, along with Nell Ring and Sara Jean
Copeland. We went up to Indian Springs Camp Meeting above
Macon, Ga., and got a good dose of singing, shouting, and Bible
preaching. What a spiritual re-fueling that was.
Let's wish these people a happy birthday this week. Bill

PeaceIn Palestine
For the past several weeks, the situation between Israel and
her neighbors has taken center-stage. Among other, things.
which it knocked off the front page was Iran's development of
nuclear technology. Do you think there might be a connection?
This summer crisis began with a Hamas attack from Gaza
into Israel and the kidnapping of an Israeli soldier.. Don't forget
that as a result of recent elections, Hamas is now the ruling par-
ty of the Palestinian Authority. So either the government can-
not control its' gunmen or sanctions cross-border attacks and
kidnapping. In either case, it does not bode well for Israel's
ability to make peace with her Palestinian neighbors.
Then, conveniently before die latest G-8 Summit,. Iran's
proxy Hezbollah from southern Lebanon launches a murderous
raid across Israel's northern border and, just to outdo Hamas,
kidnaps two Israelis. Iran created Hezbollah in 1982 and has
funded it ever since. In response, Israel invaded the first twen-
ty miles of Lebanon and occupied a space smaller than Madison
CountN' for 18 years. In 2000, Israel withdrew from Lebanon.
The United Nations was supposed to patrol this neutral territo-
ry, buit immediately, Hezbollah terrorists mo' ed in and used this
ground to raid northern Israel and launch rockets into cities like
Raifa. So much for the failed ideas of UN peacekeepers and
"peace for land."
Here is the problenr both Hamas and Hezbollah have stat-
ed time and again that the\ won't be satisfied until every Jew
has been pushed into the sea and Israel ceases to exist. How do
you negotiate with anyone, let alone a bunch of terrorists, who
hold such an extreme position? I realize that there is a liberal,
feel-good theory w which holds that such talk is simply rhetoric,
but how can you ignore the talk in the face of such actions -
cross-border attacks, killings, kidnapping, and rocket barrages?
The answer is you can't ignore this type of hate speech; instead,
you must take it a face-value.
So, what is the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) doing-about the
predicament? It is using the current crisis to destroy her ene-
mies and their ability to wage war on the Jewish homeland. Of
the two, it is apparent that Hezbollah, complete with her support
from Iran through Syria, is the greater threat than Hamas. So,
just like historN teaches us, the prudent approach in a two-front
% ar is to go after the more serious eneni\ first, lea\ ing the sec-
ond-stnng for mop-uIp duties.
Complicit in this approach, the United States is giving Is-
rael a free hand to complete the mission ... so far. Previous ad-
ministrations (would have rushed to the region to conduct'.shut-
tie diplomacy and broker a cease fire "peace in our times" in,
the words of Neville Chamberlain, followed soon by a resump-
tion of hostilities. However, George Bush is laying hands-off to
allow the IDF an opportunity to achieve a lasting peace by de-
stroying,her enemies.
The thing that makes this conflict different from the past is
that the enemy is not a nation-state but, rather, a shadowy ter-,
rorist organization. Accordingly, moderate Arab nations like
Jordan, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia have not been vocal in their
condemnation of Israel because they have just as much to fear
from outfits like Hezbollah. Bush has taken a little partisan heat
for not stepping into the breach, but the argument of 'how do
you negotiate with a terrorist organization' is powerful. That
makes about as much sense as trying to tame a rattlesnake.
It is unfortunate that the fledgling democracy in Lebanon is
caught in the cross-fire, but the IDF is being pretty careful to
limit civilian casualties. Also, I have to question just how in-
nocent these so-called civilians are since the terrorists have cho-
sen to blend into the population of southern Lebanon. After
more than two decades, Hezbollah is pretty well imbedded with
their hosts.
How successful will Israel be in dealing her enemies a crip-
pling blow? Maybe an even more. important question is how
long does Israel have to complete the mission before the world
demands a cease-fire? Although the Israeli Air Force is a world-
class outfit, it will most likely require "boots on the ground" to
.root out Hezbollah and its weapons of terror. But this thing is
for sure: in order for peace to return to Palestine, Islamo-fascist
groups like Hezbollah will need to be crushed.

Don't Bank on House Profits
to Fund Retirement
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
To enjoy'a comfortable retirement lifestyle, you \ ill
need to build your net x orth before you retire. So you mia\
be interested in knowing that, between 2001 and 2004. the
typical household's net worth, adjusted for inflation, grew
1.5 percent, according to a recent Federal Reserve study.
The good news is that the 1.5 percent figure, while not
appearing large, actually\ represents a sizable gain in fam-
ily wealth. The noit-.o-good nev\s, firm a retirement sa\-
ings standpoint, is that much of this increase in % health
came from rising home prices.
Why shouldn't you count on appreciated home prices
to form a key pillar of your retirement savings? Wont the
value of your home just keep rising? Not necessarily.
While it's true that housing prices have gone up signifi-
cantly over the last several years, there is no guarantee that
this trend will continue. Housing prices have certainly
fallen in the past and they are likely to do so again.
But, just as importantly, even an extended period of
rising home prices may not help you as much as you'd
think. After all, to profit from your home, you have to sell
it but then you have to live somewhere else. And even if
you decide to "trade down," you're likely to find that
smaller homes have also appreciated quite a bit, so 3 our
sale might not net you nearly as much as you'd hope.
To sum up: Your home may provide you with some of
the money you will need during retirement but not all of
it. And that's why you need to look beyond your house and
into the world of investments. To help pay for a retirement
that may last two or three decades, you must invest regu-
larly at every stage of your life.

Two Investment "Platforms"
Essentially, yod have two main investment "plat-
forms": your employer-sponsored retirement plan and
your private investment accounts. And you'll want to pay
close attention to both of these platforms.
For example, if you have a 401(k) plan at work, learn
as much as you can about the various investment options
available and choose the mix of investments that can
potentially provide you with the growth you need, given
your individual risk tolerance. Because it offers both tax-
deferred earnings and a chance to contribute pre-tax earn-
ings, a 401(k), by its very nature, offers some key advan-
tages in saving for retirement. But you are ultimately
responsible for your 401(k) plan's success so study up on
your choices, contribute as much as you can afford, mon-
itor review your progress and make adjustments as need-
ed.
And while you are contributing to your 401(k) at
work, you should also invest steadily in your traditional or:
Roth IRA. A traditional IRA offers tax-deferred earnings,;
while a Roth IRA has the potential to grows tax-free, pro-
vided you meet certain conditions.
Finally, you will want to build a portfolio containing a:
diversified mix of stocks, bonds and other securities. Your
financial professional can help you make sure that these
investments work in conjunction with your 401(k) and
IRA to help you take advantage of maximize your
progress toward your retirement goals.

So, if you aren't already investing consistently, start
now. The years fly by, and before you know it, retirement
will be looming. When that day arrives, you'll want to be
prepared.

never had a problem from
square one. None whatsoever."
Jack said that he would rec-
ommend international adoption
. to couples seeking children. He
said that while international
adoption is a lot more expen-
sive, it is also a lot cheaper.
Mariah is now two years
old, having celebrated a birth-
,day in April. The adoption
agency was good and supplied
the family with photos of Mari-
ah from the time she was, two
days old until the day that the
adoption was finalized.
In addition to Jack's role as
pastor at Concord, he, is going to
Valdosta State University,
where he is pursuinghis bache-
lor's degree in education.
Miranda works as a regis-
tered nurse at Amadysis Home
Health in Lake Park, Ga.
The family resides in Lake
Park, Ga.

On Tuesday, July 11, there
were six United Methodist
Women from the Pleasant
Grove United Methodist
Church in Lake City who trav-
eled to the Florida Conference
Disaster Supply Depot to as-
semble health kits.
The women even brought
their own supplies to go in
health kits such as hand tow-
els, washcloths, combs, nail
clippers, soap, bandaids,
'toothpaste and toothbrushes.
The Depot has thousands
of health kits, packed and
ready to ship, in case of a dis-
aster, whether it be natural or
man-made, thousands of
health kits and hundred of
cleaning buckets. Many Unit-
ed Methodist Women, United
Methodist Youth Groups and
others have been coming to
the Depot to assemble sup-


plies.
Last year, Hurricane Den-
nis had already hit the Florida
Gulf Coast. The United
Methodist Disaster Supply
Depot was ready and shipped
supplies to towns in the Gulf,
which were affected.
This is the time for contin-
ued hurricane preparation.

HEALTH



Florida Department of Health Announces Grant to Healthy Start


Coalition of Jefferson, Madison, and Taylor Counties, Inc.


Secretary of the Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
M. Rony Francois M.D.,
M.S.P.H., Ph.D. announces the
award of $149,782 from the
Department of Health, Office
of Minority Health to the
Healthy Start Coalition of Jef-
ferson, Madison, and Taylor
Counties, Inc., a community
based non-profit organization
dedicated to the improvement
of health for pregnant women.
and infants.
The new funding will pro-
vide pre-conception education
and counseling services to
women of child bearing age.

The services provided will
be targeted at women's health
issues that would negatively
impact subsequent pregnan-
cies and births.
Currently, Jefferson,
Madison, and Taylor Counties
are experiencing a high rate of
babies with low birth weights
and a very high rate of infant
death, particularly in the
African American community.
Madison County is experienc-
ing an. infant death rate 157%
greater than the state average
for all births, with over 18 in-
fant deaths per 1,000 live
births. In the African Ameri-


Back Pain *

can community in Madison
County the infant death rate is
36.7 infant deaths per 1,000
births or more than 4.2 times
greater than the statewide av-
erage death rate for all births.
The percentage of African
American low birth weight ba-
bies is almost 50% higher than
the state average for all births,
with 12.8% of babies being
born with a weight less than 5
pounds 8 ounces.
Recent efforts have con-
centrated on getting women
into prenatal care at the earliest
possible time. Currently
84.6% of Madison County
women enter prenatal care ear-
ly, while the state lags behind
at 81%.
The Madison County
Health Department has done
an excellent job at facilitating
early entry into prenatal care,
\et Madison County's birth
outcomes have not significant-
ly improved.
Many of the causes of
these poor birth outcomes are


related to women's health pri-
or to, their pregnancy. After
conception, most fetal devel-
opment, including the central
nervous system, heart, limbs,
eyes and hearing, occurs with-
.in the first ten weeks.
Most women don't enter
prenatal care until the eleventh.
week of their pregnancy. This
project, which is slated to span
the next three years, will seek
to improve the overall health
status of women, in order to
promote positive birth out-
comes.
Tim Sanders, Clerk of the
Court for Madison County and
a Healthy Start Board Member
comments that "The late Gov.
Lawton Chiles was the father
of our Healthy Start Coalitions
in Florida and I am thankful
for the services and outreach
these additional funds will
provide in furthering his vi-
sion and hope that every child
born in this county and in this
state greet their new world
with a healthy life."


The Health Start Coalition
will partner with the Madison
County Health Department, as
well as with Northwest Flori-
da Division of the March of
Dimes, local churches and
other interested groups, to
reach as many women of child
bearing age as possible.
Kim Barnhill, Adminis-
trator of the Madison County
Health Department states that
"she and the staff of the Madi-
son County Health Depart-
ment are committed to im-
proving the health of all
women in our county but es-
pecially those of childbearing
age. This grant will allow us to
focus on the promotion of
healthy behaviors to positively
impact the health status indi-
cators associated with infant
mortality and low birth weight
babies."
The grant will fund one
full time counselor / educator
at the Madison County Health
Department.
The grant activities will


provide counseling, educa-
tion, and referrals for
women's health issues related
to Diet and Exercise (targeting
nutrition and obesity); Med-
ication and Drugs; Home En-
vironment (targeting safety
and environmental hazards);
Lifestyle (targeting alcohol,
tobacco, and illegal drug use);
Medical History (identifica-
tion of risks resulting from
personal and'family medical
histories); Genetics; and Gen-
eral Women's Health.
The grant will be adminis-
tered by the Healthy Start
Coalition and evaluated by
Les Beitsch, M.D., with the
Florida State University Col-
lege of Medicine;
Services are anticipated to
begin in early July 2006. Any-
one interested in obtaining
more information may call
George Hinchliffe, Executive
Director of the Healthy Start
Coalition of Jefferson, Madi-
son and Taylor Counties, Inc.

Madison In Need Of Sponsorships For Local Blood Donors


By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Southeastern Community
'Blood Center (SBC) is one of
,about a hundred community
blood centers in the nation that
collect blood from local volun-
teer donors.
There are specific require-
ments that a donor must quali-
fy to be able to generously do-
nate blood.
Anyone who is in good
health and who is at least 17
years old, and weighs at least
110 pounds may donate blood
every 56 days.


Florida statutes allow peo-
ple 17 years of age or over to
donate blood without parental
consent.
Sixteen-year-olds may do-
nate blood with written con-
sent from their
parent/guardian, who must
read the Blood Donation Infor-
mation Sheet and complete the
Informed Consent-Blood Do-
nation by Minor Form, This
form must be present for each
donation by a sixteen-year-old.
Photo ID is required to,
register for blood donations.
People who have colds,


Prospective donors must


S"' volves a
brief physical
examination of blood pressure,


pulse, temperature and a test for
anemia.
If the medical require-
ments are met, a unit (about one
pint) of blood is drawn from the
donor. Afterwards, donors are
served. refreshments while re-
maining seated for 10 minutes.
The entire process usually
takes less than one hour, yet
can add many years of life to
someone who is in desperate
need.
Usually, the Southeastern
Community Blood Center'
(SBC) sends a blood mobile to
Madison to give residents a


chance to donate.
SBC is, having a lot of
trouble finding civic organiza-
tions and local businesses to
step up and sponsor/host the
bloodmobile. Also, there has to
be approximately 15 donors or
more in advance for the blood
mobile to make a trip to Madi-
son.
If anyone would like to
help, please contact the SBC at
(850) 877-7181; otherwise, no
one in Madison will be able to
donate in his or her hometown;
so please consider this a seri-
ous issue.

Choosing the Right Sunscreen


Before you head out-
doors to enjoy summer ac-
;tivities, slather on the
,sunscreen. The average
adult requires 1 ounce of
:sunscreen 2 table-
spoons1 worth for full
'body coverage. Apply 15
to 30 minutes before sun
-exposure and reapply
every one to two hours
while outdoors.
The July issue of
Mayo .Clinic Women's
HealthSource offers tips
to select the right sun-
screen. Look for one that
offers:


* Broad-spectrum pro- tects against v1traviolet A


tection. Find one that plo-


(across from Haffye Hayes Park)
S850.673.8338


(UVA) and ultraviolet B
(UVB) sunrays. Both
can damage the skin.
SPF of 15 or higher. A
sun protection factor
(SPF) of 15 deflects
about 93 percent of the
UVB rays and allows
you to remain in the sun
15 times longer than you
normally would before
getting burned. Higher
SPFs deflect about 97
percent of the UVB rays.
Water-resistant or wa-
terproof qualities. This
is especially important if
you'll be swimming or
perspiring heavily. Water-
resistant sunscreen protects
for 40 minutes;
waterproof sunscreen for up
to 80 minutes.
Skin-appropriate
form. If your skin is dry,
choose- a cream or lotion
sunscreen to increase mois-
ture. For oily skin, choose
an oil-free sunscreen. If you
have sensitive skin, look for
a sunscreen that contains
only zinc oxide or titanium
dioxide. These ingredients
provide a physical barrier
against UV rays rather than
chemically absorbing them,
which may be gentler on
your skin. Avoid alcohol-
based sunscreen if you have
rosacea or eczema.


The incidence of
melanoma, the most serious
and deadly t\pe of skin can-
cer, is increasing. In the Uhit-
ed States, the
lifetime risk
of develop-
i n g
melanoma is
now about
one in 70. It
used to be
less than one
in 100.
"The h
best way to
reduce your.
risk is to
avoid sun ex-
posure between 10 a.m. and 2
p.m, when the sun's rays are
strongest," says Mark Pit-
telkow, M.D:, Mayo Clinic
dermatologist. "But, it's a
misconception to believe that
melanoma occurs only with
too much sun exposure, or
that it occurs only on sun-ex-
posed areas." ,
I In the June issue of Mayo
Clinic Women's Health-
Source, Dr. Pittelkow shares
insights on causes, prevention
and warning signs of this po-
tentially deadly cancer.
Causes: As with many
types of cancers, melanoma
results from a combination of
environmental and genetic
factors. That's why melanoma
can occur in areas not com-
monly exposed to sun, such as
the genital area or on the scalp
underneath hair.
Prevention: Staying out
of the sun (or tanning beds) is
best. A broad-spectrum sun-
screen (which protects against
both UVA and UVB radiation
from the sun) with a sun pro-
tection factor (SPF) of at least
15 offers important protection
when you are in the sun. But
don't rely on sunscreen alone
to protect you and don't abuse
the benefits of sunscreen by
staying out in the sun for long
periods. Think of sunscreen
as a supplement to other mea-
sures to protect you from UV
radiation.
Wear protective clothing,
such as. a wide-brimmed hat


and tightly woven clothes to
protect your arms and legs. .
Warning. signs: If \ou
hate a number of moles, nl\


to do a full-body skin check
every three to six months. If
you don't have moles and
things haven't changed, once
a year is adequate.
Warning signs include
moles that are: asymmetri-


cally shaped; have a border
that's notched, scalloped, or
other ise irregular: nonunit-.
form in color: larer than
one-fourth inch
across; or
changing or
growing.
Early treat-
ment: If you find
a small lesion,
about one-eighth
inch, that has
.one or more
warning signs,
see your primary
care doctor or
dermatologist.
In many cases,
surgery alone cures thinner
lesions. The cure rates are
typically very high more
than 95 percent five-year
survival rates for cancers
that are less than 1 millime-
ter thick.

All children under 13
years of age should ride in the
rear seat of vehicles.
Remember that many
crashes occur while novice teen

the number of teen passengers
to prevent driver distraction.
Do not allow your teen to drive

Bullying
Bullying is when one child
picks on another child repeat-

bullied are either weaker or

FARM OUTDOORS



UF/IFAS Teaching Area Farmers About Protecting Water Quality


The University of Flori-
da/Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences or UF/IFAS,
is doing its part to ensure that
future generations have clean
water. UF/IFAS county ex-
tension agents, growers, and
agriculture professionals are
working together to develop
and adopt Best Management
Practices (BMPs), which can
help protect water quality.
"The primary purpose of
the Corn/Sorghum Twilight
Field Tour at Billy and Bill
Jackson's Farm was to let the
area producers' see some of
the latest in irrigation and fer-
tilizer management strate-
gies," said Chris Vann, a
UF/IFAS Lafayette County
agronomic crop and livestock
extension agent and presenter
at the Field Tour. "The BMPs
in the new Vegetable/Agro-
nomic Row Crop Manual are
being demonstrated on this
farm."
Discussion topics includ-
ed, "Corn production strate-
gies to meet economic and
BMP goals," "Soil testing and
tissue sampling," and "Infor-
mation about cost share of
BMP tools." Additionally,
UF/IFAS county extension
agents showed off some new
technologies to the producers
that may help farmers to save
money through more efficient
irrigation and fertilization.
UF/IFAS has been con-
centrating on communicating
the importance of growers


adopting BMPs, which focus
on protecting water quality.
The field tour at the Jackson
Farm was the second in a se-
ries of demonstration
planned for this season. The
previous field tour was at the
Gwinn Brothers Watermelon
Farm in McAlpin, also in
Suwannee County. The next
field tour will be held in
Gilchrist County.
"It is important for all
farmers to adopt BMPs to
minimize agriculture's contri-
bution to water quality im-
pairment," said Mace Bauer, a
UF/IFAS BMP Implementa-
tion Coordinator, based the
North Florida Research and
Education Center in Live
Oak, Fla. "It is also impor-
tant for farmers to document
the implementation of BMPs
on their farm by filing a No-
tice of Intent to Implement
BMPs. This sends a clear
message to the general public,
legislators, and regulatory
agencies that farmers are us-
ing the best possible practices
to protect groundwater quali-
ty. This also provides farm-
ers the additional benefit of
the Presumption of Compli-
ance with state water quality
standards.
One step at ,a time,
UF/IFAS is doing its part to
protect one of the state's
greatest natural resources, wa-
ter. For more information on
