Four- Wheeler

Thefts Continue
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Another four-wheeler
was stolen and a lawn
mower was stolen last
weekend.
According to the Madi- .:
son County Sheriff's Of- ,
fice, the two small vehicles
were once again stolen in
the northeastern part of the -'
county. _
Approximately 10-12
four-wheelers have been
stolen in the last two months.
Lt. Mark Joost, of the Madison County Sheriff's Office,
said, "Chains and locks apparently don't work as a deterrent
against the thefts. The thieves have cut right through the chains."
Joost recommended that four-wheeler owners possibly use
cable locks.
The Sheriff's Office also warns four four-wheeler owners to
be on the lookout for any suspicious vehicles near their homes
or in their neighborhoods.
If anyone has any information on any thefts or on suspects,
please call the Madison County Sheriff's Office at 973-4001.

along Highway 14. The request, which was not recommended by
the Planning and Zoning Board, was passed along to the county
commission.
Commissioner Roy Ellis made a motion to deny the request,
which would allow up to two dwelling units per acre. His motion
was seconded by Commissioner Alfred Martin and passed unani-
mously.
The board approved two requests, which had, been recom-
mended by the Planning and Zoning Board:. .
Both requests were for 20-acre parcels, one located on Rogers
Sink Road and the other on Highway 53 South, to be changed from
agricultural to highway interchange. Dennis Lee represented Real-
mark Management, Inc. and Woodland III, Ltd. at both zoning hear-
ings.
Both amendments were passed unanimously.


Pursuit


cont from Page 1A


After receiving information that Lowndes County units were
pursuing the vehicle through Pinetta, Andrews and Joost set up an
impromptu "welcome center" with stop sticks in Hanson. As the ve-
hicle approached their location, it braked erratically and then skid-
ded onto the east shoulder, approximately 100 yards north of their
location.
As the vehicle was sliding to a stop, facing in an easterly di-
rection, the law officers noticed both front doors open and two
black males flee into the woods, headed east.
Sgt. Kerry M. Quinn and Deputy Dale Wiley of the Lowndes
County Sheriff's Office pursued the subjects on foot as Joost and
Andrews sped to the area in their patrol vehicles.
After driving through some brush and into a soybean field,
Joost observed Wiley pointing to the southeast.
Joost sped through the field in the general direction before
spotting one of the suspects attempting to hide.
Joost stopped his patrol car close to the subject and intercepted
him on foot. The black male, later identified as Andre Rodriguez, of
Atlanta, Ga., complied with Joost's instructions and was taken into
custody without further incident.
Quinn took the other subject, who was later identified as
Joshua Eugene French, of Thomasville, Ga., into custody after de-
ploying his taser at him.
Deno transported French and Rodriguez to the Madison Coun-
ty Jail.
Marijuana and other illegal contraband were recovered from
the stolen vehicle.
The vehicle was released to the Lowndes County Sheriff's Of-
fice.

dustrial users to voluntarily reduce water consumption through
conservation measures.
Lack of rainfall has created a moderate drought throughout
the Suwannee River basin in Florida and Georgia, according to
the National Weather Service (NWS). Most areas of the District
are experiencing low or extremely low groundwater and sur-
facewater levels due to below-average monthly rainfall. With a
cumulative 12.17-inch rainfall deficit, the year ending October
31, 2006 is the eighth driest year since 1931.
New record monthly lows were observed at the Aucilla Riv-
er near Lamont, the Steinhatchee River near Cross City, and for
the second month in a row, the Santa Fe River near Fort White.
The end-of-month reading at the Withlacoochee River near
Pinetta tied the historic monthly low at that station, after setting
a new low last month.
Water shortage advisories are issued by the District in ac-
cordance with Florida Statutes and the Florida Administrative
Code, which give them authority to implement water shortage
plans.
With the NWS predicting a return to El Nifio weather pat-
terns this winter, District officials hope winter rains will replen-
ish the water resources to levels where the advisory no longer is
needed. Until then, they offer some important water-saving tips:
Reduce lawn/landscape irrigation.
Don't water between 10 a.m. 4 p.m.
Install an automatic rain shutoff switch on irrigation sys-
tem.
Plant drought-resistant trees, plants and grasses.
Equip hoses with automatic shutoff nozzles.
Wash vehicles infrequently and only on porous surfaces.
Use a broom or blower not a hose to clean sidewalks,
driveways, parking areas.
Fix leaky faucets and toilets, which can waste up to 100
gallons per day.'
Replace older fixtures with low-flow devices.
Don't let the water run while brushing teeth, shaving, or
washing dishes.
Take shorter showers; staying under 5 minutes can save
1,000 gallons per month.
Don't use toilet as a waste basket.
Use appliances efficiently (run full loads in clothes wash-
er and dishwasher).

Milton Friedman
Last. week marked the passing of a great man, economist
Milton Friedman at the age of 94. The winner of the Nobel Prize
for Economics in 1976, Friedman was the intellectual force be-
hind the conservative approach for low taxes and less govern-
ment. Reaganomics and its aftermath were built upon the re-
search and writings of Milton Friedman.
As an economics undergraduate in the late 1960s, I was "in-
fected" with Keynesian economics. The philosophy of British
economist John Maynard Keynes of government solutions to eco-
nomic challenges had come to fore in the days of Franklin Roo-
sevelt's New Deal. After more than three decades of practice,
Keynesian economics was in its heyday.
As a counterpoint, my professors introduced the theories of
University of Chicago School of Economics chair Milton Fried-
man. Friedman argued that Keynes was exactly wrong; the future
.of a growing healthy economy is smaller government, less taxa-
tion, fewer regulations, and free markets. Upon graduation, I
filed this away and went off to more exciting work like flying
jets.
In the 1970s, Keynesian economics came crashing to the
ground, aided by two major oil shocks. At least in this regard, the
single-term presidency of Jimmy Carter was the result of poor
timing. Thankfully, today's generation have no idea how crush-
ing was the effect of 12 percent inflation and 18 percentmortgage
interest rates, the combination known as the "misery index." In
1980, Ronald Reagan offered a clear alternative to Keynes with
his approach to lower taxes and less government and won in a
landslide.
Friedman argued that monetary policy was the key to grow-
ing a healthy economy. By controlling interest rates through the
money supply, the stage was set for investment and growth. That
is the job of the Federal Reserve Board, commonly known as "the
Fed." For the first seventy years of its history, Friedman argued
that the role of the Fed was poorly understood and managed.
That problem was corrected with the appointment of Paul Volck-
er and his successor Alan Greenspan as chairman. For the past
quarter century, our economy has experienced unprecedented
growth and prosperity. When we have experienced recession as
in 1991 and 2000, the effects have been relatively mild.
When politicians claim to "create" jobs like Bill Clinton's
claim of having created 20 million jobs during his presidency, do
you ever stop and ask "ho%% did he do that?'" Rubbish, Milton
Friedman would say; those jobs \\ere created b. investors, entre-
preneurs, capitalism and free markets. What government does to
create the proper economic environment is keep interest rates and
inflation low, regulate less, and take less of your paycheck in the
form of taxes so you in turn can invest in the economy.
Friedman argued that two negative effects are "the result of
unbridled growth of government. First, government needs more
money to become larger. Since the government cannot create
wealth, it must take wealth from its citizens in the, form of high-
er taxes, so less money is available to invest in private enterprise.
Second, the government is very costly and inefficient and fre-
quently, makes unwise choices in redistributing its accumulated
wealth.
Let me give you an example. Do you remember the contro-
versy earlier this year over "the bridge to nowhere" in Alaska?
This economic fiasco probably cost taxpayers $400 billion.
About 40 percent of the total was wasted in the bureaucracy be-
tween Washington and Juneau while the remainder will go into
expensive construction contracts. Instead, why not tax the users
of the bridge and let them pay for it? The reason why this won't
happen is that there aren't enough users to fund the bridge which
is why it should never be built in the first place! There are many
more examples like this.
Now that Democrats have ascended to leadership in both
houses of Congress, we're going to see an effort to resurrect Key-
nesian economics more regulation, restrictions on free trade,
and additional spending. When it comes to spending, they are
going to have to raise taxes to pay for new programs, but De-
mocrats are plenty wary about this approach because conserva-
tive Republicans schooled in Friedman economics can spot a tax-
raiser from miles away. "Tax and spend" is a label that causes
Democrats to lose sleep at night.
Milton Friedman's life work is finished now, and we are far
wiser as a result. He leaves behind a body of work that Will far
outlive his lifespan. That is a life well spent and a legacy for gen-
erations to come.

to her.

rice found six marijuana joints
and two roach clips.

Bronson Announces Arrest Of Jacksonville Man
For Operating An Unregisted Charity


Florida Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H. Bronson to-
day announced the arrest of a Jacksonville
man for operating an unregistered charity.
Arrested by Bronson's Office of Agricul-
tural Law Enforcement (OALE) and charged
with operating a charitable organization with-
out being registered, a third-degree felony,
was Robert D. Krotzer, 64.
Authorities said that the suspect operated
an organization by the name of Alcoholism
Cure Foundation in Jacksonville, which so-
licited funds from the public.
Today's arrest comes after Krotzer was di-
rected either to properly register as a charity
with the Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services or to discontinue so-
liciting funds from the public. An investiga-
tion conducted by OALE determined that de-
spite the warning, Krotzer continued to solicit


funds for his organization.
"It is critical that charitable solicitation
organizations register as required by law,"
Bronson said. "Without registering, such an
organization can do whatever it wants with the
funds it collects as it permits it to effectively
evade the obligation of reporting to us and
by extension to the public on how it spends
its money."
Bronson's Consumer Services Division
registers and regulates charitable solicitation
organizations. Consumers who are interested
in checking on the registration status of such
an organization, checking on its complaint
history or filing a complaint can call the de-
partment's toll-free hotline at 1-800-
HELPFLA.
The investigation culminating in today's
arrest began with a complaint by a Florida
consumer.


Bronson Announces Arrest Of Unlicensed Telemarketer


Florida Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H. Bronson today
announced the arrest of a Pinellas County man
for running an unregistered telemarketing op-
eration.
Arrested by Bronson's Office of Agricul-
tural Law Enforcement (OALE).on a charge of
telemarketing without a license, a third-degree
felony, was Richard Conran, 57.
According to OALE, Conran and his asso-
ciates were operating a previous unregistered
telemarketing business that sold debt-collec-


tion packages to consumers and were told by
authorities of the need to register such an op-
eration. Authorities say Conran simply
changed the name of his business to AOG and
Associates and its location to Largo, but con-
tinued to sell the same debt-collection pack-
ages.
Following his arrest, he was booked into
the Pinellas County Jail.
The Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services, which Bronson heads,
regulates telemarketers in Florida.

Clyde King Steps Down As County Commissioner


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Clyde King stepped down
after 20 years as a county
commissioner on Wednesday,
November 15.
King was defeated in the
Democratic primary in Sep-
tember by Wayne Vickers,
who went on to win the No-
vember general election.
'"I really appreciate work-
ing with all of you," King told
the commissioners at the end
of the meeting as he held back
tears. "I've enjoyed working
with the board, the attorney
and the Clerk."-
King was joined at the
meeting by his wife, Minnie
Mae King, as well as his son,
Jimmy, and daughter-in-law,
Debbie.
The commission present-
ed King with a plaque for his
years of service.
King was elected to the
County Commissioner in
1970 and took office in Janu-
ary 1971. He served one term
and was re-elected in 1986.
He stayed in until 1998; when
he lost to Joe Crafton. King.
beat Crafton and won back the
commission in 2002.
"I have some animals


here, including a horse and
two mules and a wagon. I'm
going to ride them." King
said. "I'm going to travel
some in my RV, unless I go to
visit friends or family for a
few days, and then we'll take
the car."
King said that he would
also be spending time keeping
his wife, Minnie Mae, (whom
he calls "Bonnie" after the
gangster duo Bonnie and
Clyde) straight.
In the past, King had
picked his banjo at the former
Frontier Territory and at Fort
Mack, as he held court as
Judge Roy Bean. He said that
was hard work, however, in
hot weather and he had bypass
surgery, which had put an end
to his career as the "Hanging
Judge."
King said that he.enjoyed
working for the county.
"The people were very
nice to me," he said. "I did my
job to the best of my ability. I
want to tell everyone how'
much I appreciate them letting
me stay on the commission for
20 years."
King added: "It was an
honor and a pleasure to work
the with people. It is a time


Talk to Your Adult Children
about Estate Plans
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
What type of legacy would you like to leave to your
adult children? Whatever you have in mind, share it with
them. By making sure they understand what elements
are in your estate plan, you can avoid a lot of confusion,
hard feelings and family squabbles when it's time to set-
tle your affairs.
Of course, it may not be as agreeable to discuss
estate plans with your children as, say, talking about
your granddaughter's soccer game or \our grandson's
role in the school play. And you may have to recognize
that your children, even though they're adults, feel
uncomfortable in discussing topics dealing with estate
planning. Such feelings are not uncommon. In fact,
fewer than one in three families have actually had a
meaningful conversation on legacy-type issues, accord-
ing to a study by Allianz Life Insurance Co.
Why are people of your generation more at ease in
talking about these issues? It's difficult to say, but it
seems likely that greater maturity and a sense of perspec-
tive have a lot to do with it.
In any case, once you've decided it's time to bring up
your estate plans with your children, how should you go
about it? Consider easing into the subject by talking
about things that may not be so emotionally charged. For
example, you might want to discuss your grandchildren's
college education and how you'd like to help pay for it.
Or, you might want to talk about a charity you've already
supported, and mention that you're planning to remem-
ber it in "the future."
Once you've broken the ice by addressing these
types of subjects, you should find it easier to move into
the real nitty-gritty of your estate plans. Tell you children
what's in your will, who helped draw it up and where a
paper copy can be found. Better yet, give them a copy of
it. If you've created a living trust, explain its benefits;
i.e., your assets can pass directly to them and other ben-
eficiaries without court interference, lengthy delays and
public disclosure.
Just as importantly, let them know how you'd like
matters to proceed if you should ever become incapaci-
tated. Do you want to give one of your children durable
general power of attorney to act for you? If so, which
child? Explain your decision to all your children.
One final word: Make sure your beneficiary desig-
nations are updated and let your children know that
these designations are up to date and now take into
account all births, deaths and remarriages in the family.
Keep in mind that these designations which will appear
-on your retirement plans, insurance policies and invest-
ment accounts can supersede the instructions on your
will.
At first, discussing estate plans with your adult chil-
dren can seem awkward for everyone. But after a short
while, both you and they will feel more and more com-
fortable in discussing these issues, which are of such
great importance to your family.

munity and Vision 2010 is
helping all of us do that."
Arnold noted that when
the Chamber was established
in 1973, a survey was per-
formed, as it was recently in
Madison County. The same is-
sues came up and areas of im-
provement were targeted.
These topics included educa-
tion, community information,
government, strategic plan-
ning, health care, recreation,
housing and economic devel-
opment.
In 1996, Madison County
initiated a needs assessment,
which culminated with a vi-
sion' statement and identifica-
tion of goals for the conmmuni-
ty, as well as benchmarks to
reach those goals.
With the results from the
Vision 2010 project and the
tasks identified to address the
issues raised by the communi-
ty, the Madison County Devel-
opmental Council (MCDC)
was formed. The MCDC
serves as the hub agency to
promote community develop-
ment.
During the meeting,
Arnold handed out informa-
tion sheets for members to
keep, regarding the Vision
2010 project. The hand-out
stated that there were 33
benchmarks identified in
Madison and 19 of those
benchmarks have been com-
pleted. There are currently
five benchmarks on active
status that entail the devel-
opment of a business support
center, the development of
the I-10 Interchange Maser
Plan, attracting new job op-
portunities by helping exist-
ing .industries grow or
adding new industries to the
employment base and pro-
viding bike riding trails,
horseback trails, walking
trails, off road biking trails
and campgrounds.
Altogether, the Novem-
ber luncheon and meeting
was very informative and
will help members stay "in-
the-know" when it comes to
their hometown.
Next month, Lee United
Methodist Church will be
hosting the 55 Plus lun-
cheon. The guest speaker
will be Debbie Bass from the
First Baptist Church of
Madison.

Going Back Home
Working with residents in a nursing home is almost like go-
ing back home for a visit with the folks. Nearly all of us re-
inember the feeling of anticipation as we walked up to that front
porch. There were always a few rockers up there, and of course
we were immediately invited to take a seat and 'visit': Many a
Story was told sitting on that porch while there would be a flur-
ty of activity going back and forth.
Going back home has us invited to come. on in and see
,that's been going on. We can count on a couple of our obser-
Vant folks to fill us in on what we've missed out on, with our in-
terest and ears finely tuned we'll hear the latest! Naturally, we
jvant to share our noteworthy tidbits while we gather around the
*(able, sharing a meal, and filling up on the company of our loved
nes.
; Then, we're ready to check in our "neighborhood' folks.
Hiow many doors have we eagerly knocked on looking forward
to seeing our old friends? They always seem as glad to see us as
we are to see them. Every door we go to, each one of our neigh-
bors we visit, it seems as though there is something different
about them or us that we enjoy sharing with one another. It is
reviving for us to be in the company. of our family, friends, and
neighbors, maybe it's that 'hometown' feeling.
When we visit with our folks, it seems as though time flies.
ft's as if life is running on fast forward, and we savor every
minute. Spending time with our family, friends, and neighbors
fills us up with renewed energy; the stories, laughter, and that
quiet time has recharged our batteries. Before you realize it, the
day is nearly gone and it is time for us to go. How difficult is it
fpr us to give that last hug, run out the door and wave as we go.
The joy of working in a nursing home is that we have all the
rocking chair visits, the neighborhood visits, knocking on doors,
and the best part is that we get to renew our 'hometown,' feeling
everyday.
"The family you come from isn't as important as the family
you're going to have."

dryness and itching that irri-

milder, lotion-based cleanser
for face and body can be the
first step in alleviating these
symptoms.
Moisturize your skin
properly: Rebekah George,
beauty editor of Prevention
magazine, explains that winter
skin often needs the extra care
that a specially formulated
cream can provide. A cream
that' relieves itch and won't
wash or rub off, such as Cor-
taid 12 Hour Anti-Itch
Cream, can calm the uncom-

With 12 hours of relief, heal-

Limit hot showers
and baths: Though a soak in a
hot tub may feel warm and
cozy, it can also intensify dry,
itchy skin. In fact, according
to a study by Cornell Universi-
ty, if you are prone to "winter
itch," it's best'to take short,
lukewarm showers or baths.
Afterwards, apply a "water-in-
oil"-type moisturizer while
skin is still damp to seal in
moisture, and gently pat the
skin dry.
Consult your derma-
tologist: If you have chronic
dry, itchy skin, you should
consult a dermatologist. You
may need a specific treatment
to help restore your skin back

Medical devices: Devices
don't cure incontinence, but
they can help manage it. Op-
tions include a small, tampon-
like device inserted temporari-

leakage, for example during
sports. Another option for

Cowboys Gallop Over Pensacola Catholic 33-20


Madison To Face Bolles In State Semi-finals Here Friday Night


By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Cowboys traveled a
long way to Pensacola Catholic
Friday for the second round of
the Class 2-A state champi-
onship playoffs. The condition-
ing earned from the road trips
during regular season games
paid off as the Cowboys went
the distance against Pensacola
Catholic and won a great come-
from-behind 33-20 victory.
Pensacola Catholic shot
into an early 14-0 lead over the
Cowboys. Undaunted by the
two-touchdown deficit, the
Madison boys proceeded to "do
what they do," as Coach Frankie
Carroll always says. "And what
the Cowboys do is knuckle
down, get points and win."
After the terrible first quar-
ter, Madison dominated the
game. On the Cowboys' first
possession and first play of the
second quarter, Chris Thompson
shot out of the pack and made a


75-yard touchdown run. The
PAT was good and the Cowboys
had chopped the 14-point deficit
in half. The score with 9:53 left
to play in the half was 14-7.
Madison was on a roll. Then
with six minutes left in the half,
Travis Arnold caught a Blake
Sapp pass and ran 15 yards for
the Cowboy TD. The PAT was
good and the score went to 14-
14. Madison had tied the game.
The score at the half was
14-14. It should have been two
touchdowns higher. Penalties
plagued the Cowboys through-
out the game. Bernard Brinson
made a 68-yard punt return for a
touchdown that was called back
and ran a 35-yard punt return
that had the Cowboys inside the
redzone and it was called back.
Officiating is always tough
on the Cowboys out of town and
it seemed exceptionally tough in
Pensacola. By the half, Chris
Thompson already had 90 yards
rushing. Harry Reddick had 64

yards rushing. Travis Arnold
had 28 yards rushing and a
touchdown. Brinson had 10
yards rushing and two punt re-
turns called back for illegal
blocks.
The second half got started
with the Cowboys receiving. It.
took the Cowboys less than
three minutes to march down-
field and score. Travis Arnold
again got away from the pack
for a 55-yard touchdown run.
Arnold flat outran the Cru-
saders. With 9:24 left in the
third, the PAT by Daniel Sanders
was good and the Cowboys
sprang into a 21-14 lead. The
Cowboys never looked back.
In the second half, Madison
began putting serious pressure
on the Pensacola Catholic quar-
terback. The Crusaders threw
and threw and threw some more.
They barely ran the ball all night
and when they did, it was un-
successful against the tough

The Cowboys went to work
on the Crusader quarterback
again on Pensacola Catholic's
next possession. Travis Arnold
Huggins and Quanta Barfield on
defense, made the Crusader
quarterback run for his life. The
tough Cowboy defense held
Pensacola Catholic out of the
endzone for the rest of the game.
With only 1:16 left in the game,
Thompson scored again, off a
41-yard run. The PAT failed and
the final score was 33-20.
Barfield ended the game
with four sacks for the Cow-
boys. He picked up Defensive

Cowboy basketball is
looking good for 2006.
"We're going to compete this
year," said head basketball
coach Eddie Richie.
The Cowboys compete
in a four-school district led
by Florida, High. "Florida
High rebuilt last year,"'
Richie said. "They look good
this year."
Hamilton County and
Taylor County fill out the
district.
The Cowboys have 23
games and two tournaments
on their 2006 schedule. The
Freeport High Tournament
over the holidays on Decem-
ber 26, will feature teams
from six states. Richie ex-
pects the high level of com-
petition at the tournament to
help his players get ready for
the remainder of the 2006-07
season including possible


playoffs.
Xavier Tillman will be
this year's starting center.
Tillman is a 6'5" junior. The
two starting forwards will be
Kris James, a 6'3" senior and
James Mobley, a 6' senior.
Starting at the point guard
position to begin this season
will be 5'10" senior Mike
Bruton and 6'2" DeAngelo
Tucker a sophomore.
"Tucker -has lots of
promise," Richie said. Tuck-
er came up to the varsity as a
freshman.
This core of starters has
been working through the
preseason with conditioning
training. They've been most-
ly running and working out
in the weightroom.
The 2006-2007 Cowboy
varsity basketball team is
fairly large. There are 13
current members of the team
with several more coming on
board after football season.

It was all in fun and all
for fun as Aucilla Christian
Academy ninth through
12th-grade girls donned
uniforms of their own de-
sign and hit the gridiron for
Powderpuff football. The
fun began with the first
game, a match up between
the seniors and freshman.
The seniors were victo-
rious, but were not allowed
to enjoy the win for long.
The juniors beat the sopho-
mores and then the two
winning teams faced each
other. The juniors beat the
seniors taking the powder-
puff championship.
According to one of the
faculty advisors for the
game, Mary Hartsfield,
"They practiced and prac-
ticed. The coaches coached
and they were very serious.
about this."
The games .were a new
activity created by the
ACA Student Council for
Homecoming. Eight girls
per team played on a short-
ened field in what Harts-
field described as "loosely,


flag football rules." A
crowd almost as large as
the crowd that shows up for
regular football games en-
joyed the games.
The coaches for the


various teams were foot-
.ball players. Bryan Sholte
and Jacob Pitts coached
the ninth grade team. Matt
Bishop and Casey Ander-
son coached the 10th-


grade team. Kyle Barnwell
and Daniel Greene
coached the winning ju-
niors and Steven Griffin
and Wade Scarberry
coached the losing seniors.

MCHS Marching Band Marches Their Way To The Top


MCHS marching band competed in two state-level


By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The band has been around
since the Madison County
High School (MCHS) first
opened in 1981.
Since the fall of 1997, Ge-
off Hill has been the band's di-
rector. He stated, "I enjoy
watching students develop and
mature as young people
through experiences in band. It
teaches them a lot, not just
about band, but life."
The band is the most visi-
ble .ambassador for the high
school. Unlike sports, band
doesn't have one season. The
whole school year is-their sea-


son, spanning all year long.
Band member Kierystan
Johnson stated, "Band is fun, I
like marching at half-time
shows. I play the bass drum."
The marching band per-
forms at other stadiums and is
involved with several concert
performances in the southeast
in places like Atlanta, Georgia,
and around Florida.
Recently, the marching,
band competed at two state-
level competitions hosted by
other schools. On October 14,
the marching band competition
was held in Chiefland. The
band scored a 61 overall,,
Which was three-points from.


the state finals, which is con-
sidered the highest score in the
Florida Marching Band Coali-
tion (FMBC). Out of nine
bands, the band placed fourth.
Also, the band's drum major,
Marcus Holbrook, scored su-
perior.
The second competition
was held on October 28 at the
Tallahassee Capital Stadium.
The marching band scored
three superior ratings: one in
the auxiliary guard, marching
maneuver and general effect of
show. Out of four bands,
MCHS ranked number one and

Elwyn McLeod Grinds Cane For MCCS Fifth Graders


By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Elwyn McLeod has been
grinding cane and making
syrup for about 16 years. He
learned how from his grand-
daddy Bob McLeod, and he
uses the giant kettle his grand-
father used. "Of course we
used that same kettle to scald
the hogs when we killed them,
too," McLeod said. "Among
other things."
This year was the first
year McLeod has invited the
children of Madison County
Central School to watch him
grind cane and cook syrup.
Carroll Ryals' fifth grade class
came out to McLeod's farm
on the Valdosta Highway and
stood around as McLeod and
his friends stirred sugar-cane
juice and spoke about making
syrup. McLeod's wife Martha
told the children how the
syrup is cooked, about the big
kettle and how the syrup-mak-
ing shed was built.
McLeod and his friends
also grind the cane for the
Hickory Grove Founder's Day
celebrations. He was out there
earlier 'this month with a
mule-driven grinder. At his
farm, he used a tractor his
grandfather owned to run the
belt-driven grinder.
McLeod grows his own
cane for the syrup, He has
about one acre in sugar cane.
He starts grinding cane the
first of October and finishes
around Thanksgiving. It's a
big deal for his family. They
all come to help cook syrup.
McLeod's daughter, Michel,
and her son Justin come.
Daughter, Donna Jean Odom,
comes to help, and brings her
two children, Casey and
Austin. "Everyone just comes
and goes," McLeod said. "At
Thanksgiving we all get to-
gether and enjoy it."


Last year, McLeod had 18
cooking. He said he gets
about six gallons per cooking.
He sells the syrup for $3 a bot-
tle or by the case. He said he
has a lot of friends that help
out with the harvesting, grind-
ing and the cooking. Aaron
Williams brought his mule to
the Founder's Day grinding to
work the grinder. David Lee
stirred the syrup for the stu-
dents and skimmed it. Alvin
Henderson, John Hutchins
and Ralph Hutchins, Herman
Williams and Bobby Joe
Buchanan all lend a hand at
the grindings. Several grind
their own cane, as well as help
McLeod.
McLeod has worked for
Gold Kist for 38 years as a
broiler flock supervisor. The
cane grinding is something he
does in his spare time, and he
said he makes a little money at
it. The fifth-graders from
MCCS enjoyed the syrup
making and ate lunch after-
wards.

thers did things is just not
working anymore," Hackle
said. "We have to look for new
ways to be productive and
make money." Hackle said he
and Rogers want to get the
word out to local ranchers and
farmers about new opportuni-
ties and new farming methods
that can help them be more
productive and profitable.
Rogers said he runs about
200 head of mixed cattle right
now. He breeds them to homo-
zygous Gelbvieh bulls to pro-
duce a black calf. Recently
he's been cutting back his
herd. He said he's culling out


some aged cows but he's also
worried about the market tak-
ing a downturn. Rogers is mar-
ried to wife Kathy and has two
children Kyle, eight, and
Kaylie, six.
Hackle, currently a bache-
lor, has about 50 head of mama
cows and three bulls right now.
He uses two Angus bulls and a
Hereford.
Rogers and Hackle want
to have more of a connection
and a working relationship
with the current Madison
County Cattlemen's Associa-
tion Board of Directors. "We
want to get the board more in-
volved," Rogers said. "In the
past, I was on the board, and
there wasn't that much active
participation. We want to im-
prove on that and get the board


more directly involved."
The two men also want
the Madison County Cattle-
men's Association to become
more involved in the commu-
nity as well. Currently the
group sponsors the Home-
grown Steer Class at the North
Florida Livestock Show and
Sale.
The Madison County Cat-
tlemen's Association is a
member of the Florida Cattle-
men's Association. Their mis-
sion statement says, "The FCA
strives to support cattle ranch-
ing families as an integral part
of Florida's economy and are
leaders in protecting the natur-
al landscape that is our home."
You can get more information
about the Florida Cattlemen's
Association from their website


at www.floridacattlemen.org.
The Madison County Cat-
tlemen are looking for new
members. If you'd like to join


call Rogers at 973-6621 or
Hackle at 673-7860 for infor-
mation on how you can be-
come a member.


The new Madison County Cattlemen's Association
President Clint Rogers, right, and Vice- President Phillip
Hackle, are infusing new blood, new energy and new life
into the organization with new ideas for the future.

Horses Saved From Wreck Are Saved Again


By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
There was good news
from the Human Society of
Missouri concerning the horses
bound for slaughter that were
involved in the terrible tractor-
trailer wreck. The surviving
horses will not be sent back to


the slaughter house. The Hu-
man Society of Missouri's
Longmeadow Rescue Ranch
and the Northland Insurance
Company finalized an agree-
ment giving ownership of the
horses to the Humane Society
of Missouri.,
In exchange, the Humane

Society will not seek recovery
of costs associated with the
rescue, treatment and care of
the animals. To date, these
costs exceed $84,000.
"We are so grateful to be a
part of a community that has
such compassion for animals,"
said Kathy Warnick, president
of the Humane Society of Mis-
souri.
Contributions from Mis-
souri and around the country
have helped the society gain
custody of the horses and have
helped pay for their care as
well.
Twenty-five horses and
one hinny survived the acci-
dent. However, on October 19
at the direction of her veteri-
narian, one 13-year-old quar-
terhorse-type mare rescuers
named Darlin was humanely
euthanized. The veterinarian
determined that severe and
very painful injuries to her

right, rear hoof and spine were
progressively getting worse
and would not improve. Since
the accident, two mares have
miscarried foals.
Twenty-three of the horses
are now being cared for at the
Humane Society of Missouri's
Longmeadow Rescue Ranch in
Union, Missouri. One of the
rescued horses is still being
treated at an area equine veteri-
nary hospital. Last week the
one rescued hinny returned to
an equine veterinary hospital
for further treatment of leg
wounds. The Humane Society
of Missouri will continue to
provide medical care, food and
shelter to rehabilitate these
horses so that they can become
available for adoption.

progress check out their Humane
