ports, two officers saw Hayes without a shirt on, trying to
get inside Potbellys, a bar near FSU's campus. Quarter-
back Drew Weatherford and other friends were trying to
keep Hayes, who was "screaming profanities and waving
his hands wildly," from going back inside, McCranie said.
A bar employee told police Hayes had been involved in
an "altercation" at the bar, and his friends were trying to
take him home.
According to McCranie, Officer Michael Malafronte at-
tempted to calm Hayes down, but Hayes broke free from his
friends and ran toward the officer with his fists clenched
and yelling threats.
Hayes, who was down on the ground while Malafronte
and Officer Michael Petroczky tried to arrest him, tried to
stand up, McCranie said, and Malafronte shot the line-
backer with his Taser. As the officers were attempting to
handcuff Hayes, Surratt ran toward them with a cast on
his right leg, McCranie said. They told him to back away
but he wouldn't.
McCranie said, Petroczky then pushed Surratt, who fell
to the ground. As the officer tried to arrest him, Surratt hit
him in the face, cutting Petroczky in the lower lip.
Both players were suspended indefinitely from the
team. FSU Coach Bobby Bowden said that he would review
the case and decide Hayes' playing status for Saturday's
game against the University of Alabama on Wednesday.


My Mother and I attended the annual Madison County
Farm Bureau banquet last week, and what a delight it
was. For those who missed the event, you really missed a
special treat.
Congratulations go out to the Ed Sapp family for being
named the Farm Family of the Year. What an honor. The
honor of Service to Agriculture went to Cathryn Carver,
Sara Henderson, and Blanche Sevor. The George
Townsend Good Neighbor Award was presented to Tom
Moore. The 2007 Conservation Farmer Award was award-
ed to Rachel Penny and her brother Lester Thomas. The
2007 Outstanding Young Farmer of the Year was awarded
to Kevin Leslie. Congratulations to all this year's win-
ners.
Dinner was absolutely delicious, as usual. All atten-
dees enjoyed pulled pork with all the trimmings.
Readers will find in today's Madisoni County Carrier a
special "B Section" covering the annual Farm Bureau
Banquet. I hope it can be a special keep-sake for many,
but a good read for the rest of you.
Through the years in the newspaper business I have
found myself attending and covering a lot of events. I".
must say, with all sincerity, that I think the Farm Bureau
banquet is my favorite. I have covered the Madison Coun-
ty Farm Bureau Banquet (and their early morning break-
fasts') for many, many years, and never let anyone take my
spot in doing so. I have always been greeted with open
arms and enjoyed the company tremendously
I think the farmers of America (and our counties) do
not get enough credit. Working a farm takes a lot of long
hard hours and a lot of long hard labor... more than many
of us put in each and every day in our own jobs that we
do.
We need to all try to remember that our food does NOT
come from Winn Dixie, or Harvey's. The food, on our table
each night, comes from a farm, and some farmer; some
where, is way under-paid for what he does.
SSo I ask you,i"Have you thanked a farmer lately?'" :
Make sure you do!!!

Customer Care


In my last two
Air Force assign-
ments, I was inti- National
mately involved in
implementing a Security
business organi-
zational model Joe Boyles
called Total Quali- Guest Columnist
ty Management
(TQM). One of -- -
about a dozen core
values of TQM is
customer-driven quality Here is what one
of my texts has to say about this: "Cus-
tomers are the final judges of quality Or-
ganizations must anticipate and meet their
interrial and external customer needs, now
and in the future."
It is vital to any business that they un-
derstand who their customer base .is and
what those customers value about their
products. Once you understand these ele-
ments, a business is able to tailor their
products to what is important to their cus-
tomers. Ultimately, what the business is
trying to achieve is customer loyalty where
the customers return repeatedly and refer
your products and business to other cus-
tomers.
What brought this subject to mind was a
recent experience my wife Linda had with
a local farmer. Many of you know that she
is in the horse business. She buys nearly
$2000 worth of Coastal Bermuda hay each
year. She is very particular about her hay
and has dealt with a local farmer for sever-
al years who produces excellent quality
hay, but he is a hard fellow to track down, if
you know what I mean.
Over a month ago, she was getting pretty
desperate for hay and left messages for this
fellow on his cell phone and home phone.
When he didn't return her repeated calls,
she drove over to his farm and left a written
note pinned to his door. Still no word from
him. After about two weeks of this and
now, really getting desperate, she found an-
other source for hay. She hated to switch,
but you can't exactly put horses on a diet -
they will get dangerously (and expensively)
sick if their diet is interrupted.
Okay, so Miss Linda has found another
source for hay, and last week, out of the
blue, the farmer who would never call her
back rings up and says, "I'll be square-bal-
ing next week; how many do you want?"
She patiently told this fellow that out of
desperation, she had found another source
and contracted to buy hay from him.
The out-of-luck fellow wasn't very
pleased at having lost that much business


and had all sorts
of excuses for
why he hadn't re-
turned her calls
and messages,
but there you
have it.
You see, he
hadn't made the
connection that


l ~ keeping your cus-
tomers informed
was an attribute that might be important,
in this case, to Linda Boyles.
Now, contrast that with a call she re-
ceived from her new source for hay the very
next day: "The hay field I just cut isn't
square-bale quality so I'll be round-baling
it. I'll keep you supplied with square-bales
from storage until I get this next field cut."
It should be readily apparent to you -- the
difference in approaches to customer care
between these two local farmers is like
night and day.
I see so many disparities between busi-
nesses and organizations that understand
customer focus and those that don't have a
clue., Customer care is a critical compo-
nent of a successful business because if
you lose your customers, you might as well
close the doors and hang a going-out-of-
business sign ... without customers, you
got nothing!
Understanding customers is an impor-
tant difference between private business
and government. A private sector business
that- doesn't understand their customer
base and what is important to those cus-
tomers is on a fast-track out-of-business. It
is a different story with a government
agency
In most government offices I've visited,
if you were to ask them who their cus-
tomers are, you'd get a blank stare. In fact,
if that same office never had a customer to
walk through the door, they might think
that was a successful day no interrup-
tions. What do they care; they get paid any-
way
Not so in the private sector a business
without customers means no sales; no sales
means that there isn't any money to pay the
wages.
I never cease to be impressed with excel-
lent customer service, especially service
which exceeds expectations. It deserves to
be praised. Conversely, when I see poor
customer service, I do my best to make my
disappointment known. If it persists, I'll
take my business elsewhere ... just like Lin-
da did.


CHILD ADVISORY


Loranne Ausley, the state representative for the Jefferson Leon Coun-
ty district and chair for the Leon County Whole Child was at the meet-
ing, along with George Hinchliffe, Healthy Start Coalition, and Kim
Barnhill, Administrator of Madison and Jefferson County Health De-
partments.
At the meeting, members of an advisory council voted to accept the
Whole Child challenge. For the next year, the council will conduct Lis-
tening Projects. The council will listen to what people in the community
say about what can make the county better for children. Following a se-
ries of Listening Projects, the council will take the information and put
it together to examine root causes. Then, something will be done to ad-
dress the causes, and the community will work together.
The Whole Child program outlines its commitment to children with
ten promises: Love, prenatal care, health care, assessment and early in-
tervention, early childhood education, freedom from abuse and neglect,
adequate income and support, safe neighborhoods, respect for others,
and a sense of hope.
A Whole Child community provides children with the opportunity to
be healthy, contributing members of society, based on the belief that par-


Cont from page 1A


ents have primary responsibility for raising their children, and the com-
munity is a partner in this endeavor.
The Whole Child program has been successfully tried in Mana-
tee, St. Lucie, and Leon counties. For more information on Whole Child,
contact Loranne Ausley at (850) 561-0101 or Ed Feaver at (850) 413-0714.

According to the Madison Couity Sheriff's Offl o '
Thomas Allen Humphrey was.arrested on September 20.
for driving while under the influence of alcohol and pos-
session of marijuana, less than 20 gram.. .
A report from the Sheriff's Office stated that Cpl. Kevin
Odom observed a red Ford pickup truck traveling too
closely to another vehicle. As the vehicles approached
Yellowpine Avenue in Madison, the driver of the pickup
truck slammed on brakes and skidded approximately sev-
en feet onto Yellowpine Ave.
Odom turned on his patrol lights to conduct a traffic
stop before approaching the vehicle. Odom noticed a faint
odor of alcohol while speaking with the driver of the
truck, identified as Humphrey
When asked how much he had to drink, Humphrey '
replied that he had none. Odom informed Humphrey that
he smelled the alcohol, and Humphrey admitted to having
"half of one." Following his statement, Odom asked
Humphrey if he was taking any medications of illegal
drugs, at which point he replied, "yeah, I smoked weed,
about five today."
Humphrey was asked to step out of the vehicle and per-
form field sobriety tests, which he failed. Odom arrested
Humphrey for DUI and then began to search the vehicle.
Odom located a small baggle of a green leafy substance
That appeared to be marijuana over the driver's side sun
visor, as well as a spilled beer behind the passenger's seat.

The Right "Papers" at the
Right Time Can Protect Your Family

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
To protect your family, you need more than the best
intentions you need the right "paperwork." And you're
going to need it during two distinct phases of your life your
working years and your retirement.
Let's take a look at these time periods, along with some
of:the key documenits'yoiu iny'heed.
*.' o ,* ,Working Years :
While you're working, your most valuable asset is your
income. Without it, your family might not be able to pay off
the mortgage or send the kids to college and that's why you
need to put the appropriate insurance and protection policies
to work.
You can typically purchase a surprising amount of term
insurance which, as the name suggests, covers you for a
specified number of years for relatively modest premiums.
In fact, due to longer life expectancies and other factors, term
insurance premiums, in general, have actually gone down in
recent years.
Most term insurance policies offer only a death benefit
with -no cash value. So, if you don't die before your policy
expires, you will get nothing back from the premiums you
paid in.. However, when you buy "permanent" insurance -
such as whole life, universal life or variable universal life -
your premiums pay for both a death benefit and an invest-
ment component, and any earnings have the potential to grow
on. a tax-deferred basis.
Apart from life insurance, you may need another impor-
tant document a disability insurance policy. An injury or ill-
ness that prevents you from working can seriously erode your
savings and investments, so you'll want to protect your
income. Your employer may offer some type of group dis-
ability plan. But if this plan doesn't pay at least 60 percent of
your income, doesn't pay benefits to age 65 and has a waiting
period longer than your savings can last, you may need to
look at supplemental private disability insurance.
Retirement Years
When you retire, you'll still need to protect your family,
but at this stage of your life, your focus may be on leaving a
legacy. Toward that goal, you will have some estate planning
considerations. And estate plans can be complex, so you will
need to work with an attorney.
Of course, everyone's situation is unique, but here are
two of the most common documents associated with estate
planning:
Will- If you don't have a will, your wishes may never be fully
honored, because state law will dictate how your assets are
divided. And if you have no living relatives, and you die
intestate (without a will), your estate will go to the state.
Living Trust- If you only have a will, your assets may have
to pass through probate which can be time-consuming and
expensive. But with a properly established living trust, your
assets can pass directly to your beneficiaries, without court
interference, legal fees, lengthy delays and public disclosure.
Also, a living trust can give you more precise control
over how and when you want your assets distributed. You
could, for example, have money distributed to your children
or grandchildren in installments, over a period of years.
As you can see, you need to have your "papers" in order
to properly take care of your family no matter where you are
on life's journey.

AROUND MADISON COUNTY


Madison High S(
On December 10, 2006, a dozen of local alumni of
Madison High School's Class of 1974 came together
to plan a class reunion.
Thanks to their hard work and determination,
they had their first official class reunion in 33 years
over Labor Day weekend. Close to 50 alumni came to
the celebration from as far away as Chicago, II.
They began Friday night with a meet-and-greet
social, which was held at the UMCM building on the
Valdosta Hwy. Even with on and off rain showers,


school Class Of 1974 Has Reunion


the affair was a great success.
Saturday began with taking group pictures in
the "bowl" at the old high school. Their next stop
was at Lee's City Hall park for an old-fashioned
family get-together and picnic. The night ended
with a night of dining and dancing to all the hits of
1974 at the Made to Order/Divine Events Restau-
rant. It was at this event they had their roll call cer-
emony and lit candles in memory of deceased class-
mates. They acknowledged them as being gone, but


not forgotten.
Sunday morning, they gathered for a praise and
worship service, which was held outside in the sun-
shine.
Needless to say, they are already planning and
preparing for their next reunion, which was unani-
mously voted to take place in the year 2009. If you
would like to join us next year, please call (850) 973-
2390 or (850) 971-5564. Also, they will be meeting
September 27, at the public library at 3 p.m.

HEALTH & NUTRITION


Big Bend Hospice released its annu-
al report to the community recapping
the services the organization has pro-
vided to the community during the past
year. The report announced the addi-
tion of a new service, a transport van
to provide transport for Big Bend Hos-
pice patients form hospitals and nurs-
ing homes to the Margaret Z. Dozier
Hospice House in Tallahassee. Funding
for this new service comes from Capital
City Bank and proceeds from the annu-
al Big Bend Hospice Dr. Bass' Large
Mouth Open Golf Tournament.
"It is humbling to see how many pa-
tients and their families have trusted
us to provide care and comfort when
they are faced with a life limiting ill-
ness. As the hometown hospice team of
professionals, we have been honored to
be invited to serve," said Carol Katz,
RN, team manager for Jefferson, Madi-
son and Taylor counties on reviewing
the annual statistics.
Other highlights from the report in-
clude:
Big Bend Hospice cared for an aver-
age of 293 patients every day for a total
of 107,056 patient care and support
days last year.
That 474 patients received Hospice
House care for acute medical issues or
respite for caregivers.


Last year, 379 volunteers provided
23,991 hours of service to hospice pa-
tients and families. This volunteer
support provided a cost savings
$424,170.62
Grief and loss support was provid-
ed to 11,102 Big Bend Hospice families
after the loss of their loved one, plus
another 247 community members who
did not use hospice services.

What To Do


When A Friend


Has Cancer

The birth of a child is sweet. For Amy and Warren
Taylor, the birth of a healthy baby boy was especially
joyous because the fragile infant developed and sur-
vived his mother's treatment for stage-three breast
cancer-including chemotherapy, blood transfusions
and a mastectomy. His healthy birth ended months of
uncertainty as to how the cancer treatments might af-
fect him.
When Amy was diagnosed, the Taylors were over-
whelmed with information, decisions and life. "When
Amy was diagnosed, I told four people that first night
and I was exhausted," Warren said.
When someone you know is facing a serious health
diagnosis or a condition like breast cancer, there are
many ways you can help ease the strain:
1. Help out at home: Mow the lawn, take the trash to
the curb, water the plants or collect the mail or news-
paper. Offer to fold laundry or clean the house.
2. Help with meals: Provide ready-to-cook meals,
frozen and portioned according to the family's size.
Make-and-bake meal preparation stores are conve-
nient if you don't like to cook. Restaurant gift cards
always come in handy. Go grocery shopping for those
family members who remain at home-or invite them
for dinner.
3. Take care of the rest of the family: Help the kids
at home get to school in the morning or to their after-
school activities. Provide rides for the kids or dinner
for them before their evening activities. Offer to take
them shopping for a special birthday, holiday or get-
well gift. Walk the dog or change the cat's litter box.
4. Create a caring community: That's what Warren's
brother did when he set up a free, personalized Web
site where the couple could post regular updates to
keep people apprised of her treatments. The site cre-
ated through CaringBridge.org became the'conduit
for engaging the Taylors' friends and family to pro-
vide the encouragement Amy needed to persevere. Ap-
proximately 1/3 of the nonprofit's private, personal-
ized sites are for individuals battling some form of
cancer.
"When you're fighting cancer,'.you can feel lik6e"
you're in a :bubble and alon;'" Affiy said; "The re-
sponses, the love from people reading my site, their
prayers kept me going and helped me realize that I
wasn't isolated in this bubble."
5. Don't do it alone: Coordinating daily dog duty or
the kid pool to extracurricular activities among a
group will help spread out the responsibility and time
commitment. A group may even be able to tackle larg-
er projects such as painting or landscaping that will
really touch the family.
Doctor's Advice
"When facing a serious health condition, people
live in a slow-motion world filled with fear, uncer-
tainty and important medical decisions. They simply
can't focus on-or may even forget about-day-to-day ac-
tivities," said Dr. Jesse Gruman, president of the Cen-
ter for the Advancement of Health. "Those burdens
cause action paralysis. Friends and family can best
help by just doing whatever they see that needs do-
ing."
Supporting family, friends and neighbors who are
facing a serious health condition, treatment or a pro-
longed illness can be incredibly fulfilling, and your
efforts will be a welcome relief during long days.

sites for people with a serious health condition and

Skin-Pampering Tips For The


Beautiful Bride-To-Be


Being a radiant bride can be a piece of
(wedding) cake-especially if you start
pampering your skin as soon as you've
set the date. Now is the time to get into a
routine of cleansing, toning and mois-
turizing your skin every day.
Be sure to drink eight glasses of water
daily to hydrate your skin and plan on
getting plenty of beauty sleep. Take the
time to lightly exfoliate your skin at least
once a week.
Get into the habit of having a full fa-
cial to rid your skin of impurities. Don't
try a new facial or get anything waxed
just before the wedding, as you might ir-
ritate your skin. Give your skin at least a
week for recovery before the big day.
Most wedding gowns are designed to
show plenty of skin, and it would be a
shame to have to cover up because of a
birthmark, scar or tattoo.
"If you have an imperfection that you
can't remove or a tattoo you'd like to con-
ceal, you may want to consider a product
that can hide and expertly cover skin im-
perfections for the big day," said Kim
Heintzman, makeup artist.
In fact, the Journal of the American
Academy of Dermatology reports that 24
percent of Americans between 18 and 50
are tattooed. While you might love show-
ing off your tattoo on a daily basis, your


wedding day might be a different story.
Heintzman's favorite cover-ups in-
clude CoverBlend by Exuviance Conceal-
ing Treatment Makeup SPF 20 and Multi-
Function Concealer SPF 15. The opaque
treatment creme was developed to con-
ceal, treat and protect the skin.
"It's formulated to provide superior
moisturization and antioxidants, while
evening skin tone and reducing the ap-
pearance of fine lines and wrinkles,"
said Heintzman.
A good smudge-resistant concealer
corrects, covers and treats all skin im-
perfections including blemishes, scars,
age spots, birthmarks and uneven skin
tone.
"When applying any concealer to your
face, use your fingertip or a sponge to
blend the edges," said Heintzman. "To
conceal more serious flaws, apply in a
dab/pat motion and build until you have
desired coverage."
, Once you use the concealer for the
wedding day, pack it along for the honey-
moon. Water-resistant concealers can be
used at the pool or beach.
For more information, visit
www.neostrata.com or call (800) 225-9411.
Concealing makeup cremes can cover
up scars, tattoos and other imperfections
on your wedding day.

If you're like many brides, saying "I
do" doesn't just mean committing to a
partner, it means committing to plan-
ning the details of your wedding as well.
When it comes to this intricate detail,
designer Vera Wang shared her
thoughts: "Fragrance provokes the sens-
es and conjures up memories in inex-
plicable ways. The significance of a fra-
grance that captures all of the emotion,
dignity and joy of a wedding is immea-
surable. Incredibly intimate yet nearly
imperceptible, a bride's fragrance re-
mains with her long after the ceremony
is over."
Try these expert tips for choosing a


fragrance:
Start Early-It's probably a good idea
to take some time out of your busy
schedule and try some new fragrances.
Choose Together-Make sure your
groom likes whatever scent you choose-
this is no time for surprises.
The Big Day-On your wedding day,
don't apply perfume directly to your
skin. Instead, spritz into the air, sur-
rounding yourself in the halo of scent.
To find a wedding scent that suits
your style and taste, visit Perfumania or
Perfumania.com.
The right scent can help make your
wedding day even more memorable.

A growing number of en-
gaged couples are saying "I
do" to destination weddings.
In fact, research shows
that at least 15 percent of all
weddings are now destina-

wedding escape.

wedding from afar can seem
like a daunting task. That's
why many couples turn to
experts for planning advice.

Approximately 2.2 million wed-

with the average cost now reaching
$27,000.*
"A wedding is a large investment,
both emotionally and financially. But
with so many moving parts, there's a
lot that can go wrong," says Alan Tu-
vin, vice president of product man-
agement, Travelers insurance.
What happens if your wedding
dress is damaged before the ceremony
or the catering company goes out of

Other coverage includes postpone-

leave, forfeited and lost deposits and
extra expenses associated with spe-

"Most people have to plan a wed-

For instance, ,Marriott In-
ternational has expert Cer-

hand to assist at their hotels
and resorts worldwide. Be-
low are the top 10 tips for
planning a destination wed-
ding from Simon Bell, the
director of marketing, at
the St. Kitts Marriott Resort
& The Royal Beach Casino
on the Caribbean island of
St. Kitts in the British West
Indies, a popular site for
destination weddings.
1. Research Locations.
Choose a fun destination, but
be sure to understand each
location's marriage require-
ments. After all, you want to
be certain your marriage
will be legal.
2. Plan Ahead. Allow
yourself to enjoy the plan-
ning process by giving your-
self an adequate amount of
time to plan the details of
your ceremony and recep-
tion.
3. Prepare Guests. Con-
sider sending a "Save the
Date" notification well ahead
of time. Destination wedding
guests often need more time
to purchase plane tickets and
organize travel itineraries.
4. Arrive Early. Try to
arrive at your location at
least two days before the
wedding so you have time to
relax before the big day and
cover any last-minute de-


tails.
5. Carry Your Gown.
The bride should always
carry her wedding gown
and other items she'll need
for the wedding aboard the
airplane. Hang up the gown
as soon as you get to the ho-
tel to avoid wrinkles.
6. Stock Up. The bride
should always bring extra
panty hose and nail polish.
7. Coordinate Your
Clothes. The groom should
bring a tuxedo from home,
since most rental companies
charge the same for a week-
end or a week. The proper fit
is crucial. Ask ;your dress-
maker or bridal shop owner
how best to pack your gown
for travel.
8. 'Take Time Out For
Guests. Make yourself
aware of any special needs
of your guests.
9. Avoid Excess Sun.
Don't lie in the sun before
the wedding. Sunburn and
tan lines don't look good in
wedding pictures, not to
mention the pain you may be
in!
10. Relax. Let your Mar-
riott Certified Wedding
Planner worry about the
cake being perfect, the
champagne being chilled,
the grass being cut andall
the other details.

Rings Worth Committing To: A Groom's Guide

much homework as you
would before entering the
showroom. Read on for some
other useful tips:
Don't Rush It-Most men
take one to three months to
find the right engagement
ring. But you might be able to
save yourself some time and
stress by shopping for all
three rings-the engagement
ring and separate wedding
bands for bride and groom-at
once.
"Finding three rings at the
same time takes some of the
pressure off the groom be-
cause it means a big part of
the wedding to-do list will al-
ready be taken care of," says
jewelry and style expert
Michael O'Connor "Alsn it's


easy to decide what will coor-
dinate with the engagement
ring if you see them all at the


same time." Web sites like
www. white flash.com are ter-
rific resources for visualiz-
ing what you need before
buying, and that particular
site's policies are great when
it comes to returns and life-
time trade-ups in case you de-
cide to buy a larger stone
with a different Platinum set-
ting.
Know The Lingo-You al-
ready know that car dealers
react differently to buyers
who know what they're talk-
ing about. So come armed
with a few choice buzzwords
technically known as "the
four Cs": "cut" (the proper
proportions, whether a pear,
oval or other shape, optimize
a diamond's natural radi-
ance); "clarity" (the fewer a
diamond's flaws, the more
valuable it is); "color"


(whitest is best); and "carat"
(although a higher carat
weight may increase a dia-
mond's rarity and value,
small stones can still be more
expensive if the other three
Cs rate highly). And remem-
ber: The center diamond gen-
eftally accounts for most of
the ring's price, so it's impor-
tant to invest in a quality
Platinum setting-which most
brides prefer, according to
the latest surveys-that will
hold the diamond securely in
place for a lifetime.
Know Her Style-The good
news is that the three rings
you buy don't necessarily
have to match. "The band and
engagement ring just need to
work well with one another


and complement your bride's
personal style," O'Connor ex-
plains. "Is she 'girly' or out-
doorsy? Modern or tradition-
al?" If you're having trouble
figuring out what she likes,
talk to her friends or hit a
few jewelry stores together.
Determine A Budget-
Most men set aside two
months' salary for the en-
gagement ring alone. So if
you're buying all three Plat-
inum rings at once, figure on
budgeting another month's
salary for the additional two
rings.

Luke Witmer tackles a Munroe Bobcat.
By Fran Hunt
Monticello News
The Aucilla Christian Academy Warriors defeated
Munroe Friday night in gridiron action, 42-12, in the first
district game of the season.
Coach Joe Striplin named Luke Witmer as the offensive
player of the week and Reggie Walker as the defensive play-
er of the week.
The Warriors scored seven in the first quarter, 14 in the
second quarter, 28 in the third, and six in the fourth for the
win.
Striplin attributed the fourth consecutive win to the ex-
pert training of his assistant coach Terry Dobson on the
Warriors' defensive plan. "We were able to hold Munroe to
90 yards rushing where they usually average about 280

rushing yards per game,' said Striplin. He also compli-
mented assistant coach Chris O'Brian on his offensive line.
"We've been doing a great job of not giving up any quar-
terback sacks this season and averaging more than 200
rushing yards per game."
Quarterback Matt Dobson had seven pass completions
of 13 attempts for 123 yards, two touchdowns and one pass
interception.
In receiving, Witmer had one pass reception for 12
yards; Casey Anderson, two pass receptions for 31 yards
and one touchdown; Walker, two receptions for 19 yards;
and Kyle Barnwell, two receptions for 61 yards and one
touchdown.
A.J. Connell made six successful extra point attempts
out of six.


"He hasn't missed an extra-point kick this season," said
Striplin.
On the defensive side of the field, Walker, six tackles,
Woody Vollertsen, seven tackles, Zack Waters, six tackles;
and Brandon Dunbar had one pass interception for a
touchdown.
The Warriors now stand at 4-0 on the season and 1-0 in
district play.
Aucilla will face Randolph South of Albany, 7:30 p.m.,
Friday, Sept. 28, there.
Striplin said that Randolph is a big physical team who
likes to run the football at you. "We're pretty excited about
Friday night's win and working on any mistakes. I do look
to continued improvement and getting better as a team,"
said Striplin.

Cowboys Leash Bulldogs


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison County High School
Cowboys put a leash on the Suwannee
County Bulldogs in a game played Fri-
day, September 21, at Boot Hill in Madi-
son, beating them 35-0.
The game appeared to be a close one,
when the Cowboys only led 7-0 at the end
of the first quarter.
In the second quarter, however, the
Cowboys poured it on, racking up 21
more points, making the score 28-0 at the
half.
Following an impressive halftime dis-
play by the Vaquero Guard, under the di-
rection of band director Geoff Hill, the
Cowboys came back in the second half


and played ball con-
trol offense.
The Cowboys
scored one touch-
down in the third
quarter, making the


BLAKE SAPP
score 35-0.
The defense kept
the Bulldogs from
scoring throughout
the entire game.
Quarterback Blake JORDAN JOHNSON


Sapp went five for 11, passing for 85
yards.
Quarterback Chestin Hardin went
zero for four passing. He was sacked once
for a seven yard loss.
Donteris Huggins threw one pass and
completed it for 45 yards.
Chris Thompson rushed p
10 times for 93 yards. SPECIALIZI
Cory Akins rushed eight SCAL
times for 84 yards.
