Greene Publishing, Inc.
The City of Madison Fire
Department responded to an
alarm at 8:05 a.m. Sunday,
March 9, at 193 Gibson Trailer
Parkway in northeast Madison.
According to Madison Fire De-
partment Chief Alfred Martin,
the department was on the
scene at 8:12 a.m. and remained
there until dismissed at 9:54
a.m.
"The residents attempted to
warm their home by using the
oven for heat," said Martin.
"The structure was a total loss,
with damages estimated at


$10,000."
Martin reported that Tom-
my Thigpen was the owner of
the single-wide mobile home
and that it was being rented to
Christie O'Neal. Others dis-
placed by the fire were a minor
and Tyrone White.
The Capital Area Chapter of
the American Red Cross has re-
sponded to a call for assistance.

Things got really hot late Sunday evening at this pole barn fire in sguth Madison County. After six
hours of fighting the blaze, the fire department departed, only to be called again eight hours later.

It could be called the fire
that just would not go away,
The Lee Volunteer Fire De-
partment responded to a call at
about 10:30 p.m. on Sunday
evening, March 9. According to
Fire Chief Reese Thomas, the
fire was located on SE Gilbert
Trail just off Rogers Sink Road,
in a 60 foot by 80 foot enclosed
pole barn. The barn was
owned by Don and Lori Willis
of Madison.
"The fire was very hot,"


states Thomas. "We just can't
thank the other departments
that came to our rescue
enough!" he'continued. "They
did a great, great, great, great
job!" he exclaimed.-
The Lee, Pinetta, New Home
and Madison Fire Departments
all responded to the stubborn
blaze. "We are so thankful for
those other guys; it all ran like
clockwork. And everyone was
really tired, thank the Lord no
one was hurt."
The fire fighting squads
were on the scene until approx-


imately 4:30 a.m. Monday
morning. The pole barn was a
total loss, but the apartment at
the end of the pole barn may
have some items that are sal-
vageable.
No livestock or equipment
was lost in the fire, although
Lori Willis received blisters
while evacuating equipment
from the barn. Thomas reports
that her condition is good and
she should be just fine.
After a long night of fire
fighting, the LVFD was called

macies. A national network of
more than 57,000 participating

Kortnie Page Wins Jr. Miss Essence


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Both the Miss Essence and the Jr.
Miss Essence Pageants of Madison
County were held Sunday, February
24, at the Van H. Priest Auditorium,
located on the NFCC campus. The
Morningstar M.B. Church and Radio
Station WMAF 1230AM, in conjunc-
tion with North Florida Community
College, were this year's sponsors of
the Miss Essence and Junior Miss
Essence Pageant of Madison County.
Entitled "The Colors of Life," not
only was the pageant beautifully put
together, but the ladies who partici-
pated were diverse in looks, talent
and style. Radiating confidence,
character and class, the contestants
were stunning examples of young
ladies that will be winners in life, no
matter what course they choose after
the days of pageant have passed.

Pageant, open to girls aged 12 to 15,
was a new addition this year to Madi-
son's annual Miss Essence event.
Younger ladies joined the competi-
tion for the Jr. Miss Essence title,
preparing for the day that they will
move up the ladder to the next step of
Miss Essence. Younger, but no less tal-
ented, poised or pretty, the Jr. Misses
took the stage with a confidence that
was unexpected for girls so new to the.
pageant circuit.
After Pastor Oliver Bradley wel-
comed and introduced the M.C.s of the
Miss Essence Pageant, Ms. Edna

One night, a group of us were having dinner, celebrat-
ing the return of a friend from England. Janice had just
gotten back from a fabulous trip, and she was going on and
on about the hotel she stayed in. I was sitting there, looking
around at the others all put together so well. It was hard
not to compare and feel sorryfor myself as Ilooked down at
my out-of-style dress; it was the only thing I could find that
was clean. My unwashed hair was pulled up in a hair clip
and I was afraid I could actuallysmell peanut butter in it.
I was feeling prettypathetic, when Janice turned to me with
a beautifully wrapped package, and said, 'I brought you
this.'It wasa book on the great cathedrals of Europe. I was-
n't exactly sure why she'd given it to me until I read her in-
I scription: 'To Charlotte, with admiration for the greatness

bher In the days ahead I would read no, devour the book.
And I would discover what would become for me, life-
l ay changing truths, after which I could pattern my work: No
y one can say who built the great cathedrals we have no
record of their names. These builders gave their whole lives
for a work they would never see finished. They made great
sacrifices and expected no credit. The passion of their build-
ing was fueled by their faith that the eyes of God saw every-
thing. A legendary story in the book told of a rich man who
'Happy Birth- came to visit the cathedral while it was being built, and he
saw a workman carving a tiny bird on the inside ofa beam.
e time to send He was puzzled and asked the man, 'Why are you
d like to give spending so much time carving that bird into a beam that
will be covered by the roof? No one will ever see it' And the
onday, March workman replied, 'Because God sees.'

Letters to the Editor are typed word for word, comma for comma, as sent to this newspaper.

Thank You For Sharing Your Heritage


Dear Editor:
Yesterday our group of twenty-four
people from Oak Hammock at the U. of E
paid a visit to your beautiful city Myra
Valentine greatly assisted in the pre-plan-
ning of this tour to make our day visit
such a success. We would like to share
with your general public some of the ac-
tivities of our day so that they will be
aware of the importance of local leaders,
such as Myra, on the image of your home
town.
Upon our arrival at the O'Toole Herb
Garden Myra was right there with a big
smile greeting us one by one as we de-
parted our tour bus. She and Bee O'Toole
led our tour members around the green-
houses and little shops sharing horticul-
ture and cultural information of the
Madison area.
S As we left the herb garden, Myra
boarded our bus and continued to share
interesting information about each his-
toric home and area.


A delicious luncheon was ready to be
served upon our arrival at the One
Eleven Grill Pam O'Toole and her staff
out did themselves with service and qual-
ity of good southern food. Myra was a
major player in the preplanning for this
well organized luncheon. Our favorites -
fried green tomatoes and banana pud-
ding!
Our group was amazed that even the
local police were right there assisting
with the movement of our large Oak
Hammock bus. At each location on our
city tour they were there along with oth-
er city officials to make us feel very wel-
comed.
Myra had organized volunteers at
each location who were well informed on
the rich history of your city and county
Each of these volunteers made us feel so
very welcomed. Because of Myra Valen-
tine's willingness to assist with this coor-
dination of volunteers and her support,
many of our Oak Hammock members


insist on a return visit to your incredible
city
You are indeed fortunate to have
such dedicated people who truly care
about your rich historical heritage. Our
wish for your community is that you will
continue to preserve what you have. So
many cities have destroyed one-by-one
their older homes and buildings. Once
they are gone, the sprit of the city
changes forever, the original ambiance
cannot be regained. By promoting group
tours, such as this one coordinated by the
leadership of volunteers, such as Myra
Valentine, your citizens will see the in-
trinsic, as well as the economic value of
saving your historic homes and struc-
tures. You have inherited a priceless gift,
left to you by your forefathers. Please con-
tinue to save and to share this gift.
Thank you Madison,
Edna Hindson
Member of the Natural History
Society of Oak Hammock at the U. of E


I LOVE YOU,
Emerald

An Interesting



Week For Me

Last week was definitely an interesting one for me.
I landed in the emergency room Sunday afternoon
and was rushed to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital Mon-
day night where I had emergency surgery. During the
surgery, Dr. Eliot Sieloff found that I had a chicken bone
lodged in my small intestine. The bone had caused a bad
infection and it could have gotten a lot worse if I had not
been sent to TMH, where Dr. Sieloff and his capable
team performed the surgery I thank God for relief from
the pain and I thank everyone who had a part in my
treatment and recovery.
It was one of the most grueling weeks of my life but
I'm on the road to recovery and yes I can now laugh
at myself for being stupid enough to swallow a chicken
bone, even though I have no idea how it ever happened.
Lee Day is coming up. Saturday, April 5, is the big
day. Congratulations to all the honorees for this year's
Lee Day On Saturday evening, March 8, Brittany Hud-
son was crowned Miss Lee and Molly Williams was
crowned Teen Miss Lee. Jodi Phillips was named Miss
Pre-Teen Lee.
Lee United Methodist Church will host a crucifixion
reenactment on Friday, March 21. Local pastors will
speak on the "Seven Last Words of Christ" as Jesus
Christ, portrayed by Jabaris Thornton, hangs on the
Cross. It will begin at 6:30 p.m., rain or shine. Everyone
should go out and enjoy it.
That's all the news for this week! Have a great week
and a beautiful forever! May God bless each and every
one of you!

to duty once again at the same location at approximate-
ly 12:30 p.m. Monday, March 10. While trying to remove
some of the items from the apartment, apparently the
fire restarted and the LVFD needed to be called once
again. Approximately one hour later the fire was out
and the crew set forth for a well-deserved rest.
It is believed that the fire was caused by an electrical
spark.

tions as one by one the Misses and Jr. Misses took the
stage, displaying an impressive array of abilities.
When the final results were tallied, there could be
only one Miss Essence, and one Jr. Miss. Ra'Shauntah
Jackson was crowned Miss Essence 2008, in the 16 to 19
age group. Jakira Moore took'first runner up, with sec-
ond runner up being awarded to Crystal Ford.
Kortnie Page was the winner of the Jr. Miss Essence
selection, while Romane' Morris took first runner up
and Tyneshia Arnold made second runner up. Crowned
by former pageant winners Ashley Parrish and Shara
McNair, the girls owned the stage upon which they won
their titles.
All of the participants of the pageant should be
proud of themselves for the confidence and preparation
they obviously put into their portions of the competi-
tion. Each girl was uniquely fabulous, displaying indi-
vidual style and poise as she walked the stage, from the
youngest to the most experienced, each brought their
own personal touch to the collaboration.
The Pageant Committee wishes to thank everyone
involved in this year's Miss Essence Competition, those
who assisted, and all that supported the pageant and
pageant contestants. An incredible way for young girls
to learn style and grace, how to walk, talk and perform
with the essence of a princess, may the Miss Essence
Pageant continue in the years to come to help further

By Emerald Kinsley
Greene Publishing, Inc
Libby Welch, of Lee, was the special honoree Friday
evening, February 8, at the Madison Chapter of the Order of

Libby Welch, left, is pictured while having her distin-
guished 50-year-pin placed on her blouse by Star Sister,
and friend, Mary Ellen Greene. Welch was the honoree
at a recent covered dish dinner, given in her honor, for
her outstanding award.


The evening began with everyone, including the hon-
oree and her husband, Alfred Welch, enjoying a covered dish
dinner that the Star members prepared themselves. After
dinner Brother Carl Williams, PGP, of Perry presented
Welch with the coveted pin, and Star member Mary Ellen
Greene pinned it on her blouse. Sister Libby was then salut-
ed with Grand Honors, in honor of her distinguished award.
Libby Welch joined the Eastern Star at the young age of
18. She later moved to Madison County in 1968, is the wife of
Alfred Welch, the mother of Allen Welch and Vivian Searcy
and is the proud grandmother of four grandchildren.

Lunching At The


Woman's Club


Mike and Pat Lightcap surprised their mother, Doris Legge,
with a birthday party on Saturday March 1, 2008. Mike and his
wife, Kathy came unannounced from Orlando and Pat and his
wife, Helen, of Madison provided the birthday cake and made
arrangements for a dinner
Doris moved to Madison last June after the mobile home
park in which she lived was sold so that the land could be used
for the expansion of Edgewater High School. "The move was
tough on me but I am making it okay now," Doris said. Such a
forced move is difficult on most people, butespecially on one who
is 92 years old and had lived in the Orlando area since 1960.
A special dinner at Ken's Bar-B-Q with granddaughter Sher-
ilyn Pickels joining the family was followed by dessert of birth-
day cake at her apartment with grandson Brad Pickels arriving
after his work day ended.
Doris commented, "I'm just happy having my family with
me on this day" She never expected to live this long and wonders
what the Lord is expecting her to be doing. Maybe it is her ex-
ample of aging with faith, dignity humor and wisdom that God
is enjoying.
Happy 93rd birthday Doris Legge!!!.

As any true Belle can tell, there are rules to being
a lady, especially in the South. These rules, like so
many others in life, are not written down, they are
handed down from generation to generation, from
grandmother to mother to daughter. It is through the
hands of these women that life lessons are learned and
love is taught. The love for community, sisterhood, and
God is shared. The rules of loyalty, respect and tradi-
tion are followed. To not follow in this manner would
be considered unladylike and The Madison Woman's
Club is made up entirely of ladies.
The Woman's Club movement gradually developed
as women in the early 1800's joined, finding it an ac-
ceptable social outlet and a benevolent society in
which to assist the needy within their communities.
As women became more visible, organized and outspo-
ken, women's clubs positively effected social change in
the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by improving
social problems beyond their local environments.
Championing for women's rights, organizing to raise
monies for community needs, and lobbying for im-
proved laws that affect women and children, the
Woman's Clubs of America have provided a forum in
which women may shift their attention from the indi-
vidual to the community in need.
The Madison's Woman's Club is an excellent exam-
ple of the Woman's Club of today. Made up of some of
the South's finest examples of ladies, these women
serve their community in the truest of southern belle
form. Hosting luncheons, art shows, and community
events, the Madison Woman's Club is a hip spot on a
fine spring day to get in touch with local affairs while
serendipitously sipping sweet tea.'
The entryway, decorated and friendly, was the first
sign of the women's touch.
Announcing an art event, the foyer led to a lun-
cheon that was accented by displays at the Woman's
Club, Thursday, February 14. The ladies in red filed in
to a beautifully displayed gala of works set off by a
Valentine's background. From a ribbon shawl to a
window of time, the exhibit was romantically de-
tailed, with a blue ribbon deciding the pick of the
members.
The ladies giggled with pride as lunch was served,
whispers floating above their tables like butterflies as
they decided their personal favorites, jotting down the
results on dainty slips of paper that would announce
the final tally Each piece of work presented provided
a glimpse into the personalities of the contributors,
unique, tasteful and skilled, with a bit of southern
soul passed on to the viewers.
To pick a favorite among the accomplishments
shown made for a difficult decision indeed. In the end,
Madison Woman's Club member, Carolyn Edwards,
was a definite winner with her large fine needle tat-
ting centerpiece, beautifully accented by its blue rib-
bon. Edwards beamed proudly as she held up her en-
try that so richly deserved its First Place praise. Her
sisters in arms, hugged, smiled and supported each
other as they perused the other exhibits, satisfied with
the presentation that artfully displayed their style.
A rich collaboration of art, women and whimsy,
the luncheon allowed visitors a loving look into the ta-
pestry of sisterhood, filled with rich colors, firm con-
victions and delicate dedication, seeped in proper
southern fashion.
An equally fabulous collection of women, the
Madison Woman's Club is comprised of ladies who
know and follow some of the most important rules of
being a Belle, always appreciating natural assets,
knowing your manners, always wearing a winning
smile and always serve sweet tea accompanied by art.

HEALTH & NUTRITION/MONEY FINANCE


Can Antibiotics Be Counted On?


By Tyrra B Meserve
Greee Publishing, Inc
Facing the cold and flu season is difficult for every-
one, especially those with small children. At the office, in
schools, day cares, grocery shopping or a trip to the mall can
have a body wheezing and sneezing before the words "Doc,
can you write a prescription" are out, but getting that pre-
scription for antibiotics refilled pronto may not be the best
advice, either. Treating all stuffy noses the same is leaving
many out in the cold, and right when they may need antibi-
otics the most is when some just don't cut it anymore.
Antibiotics, first used in the 1940's, work against infec-
tions caused by bacteria.
Viruses, however, are not alive and cannot exist on their
own; they require another living cell to do so. It is only after
a virus has invaded other living cells that they are able to
live, grow and reproduce. While some viruses can be fought
off by the body's own immune system, others such as a cold,
flu or the chicken pox, must simple run their course.
Many doctors, to appease patients' demands, or patients,
not fully informed as to the difference, use antibiotics as a
panacea to all ailments they or their little ones may be expe-
riencing. The problem occurs most often when the individ-
ual is prescribed an antibiotic for a cold and, in a few days
still isn't getting any better.
One of the world's most widespread and pressing public
health problems is antibiotic resistance, according to the
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Some bac-
teria that were once highly responsive to antibiotics, such as
pneumococcal infections, which cause pneumonia, ear in-
fections, sinus infections and meningitis, skin infections
and tuberculosis, have become increasingly resistant to
some of the most powerful antibiotics available. There are,
however, some tips that people can employ to minimize the
risk of bacterial resistance.
First, treat only bacterial infections and let milder ill-
nesses run their course. If unsure what constitutes a mild
illness or if dealing with a young child, seek advice and ask

questions. If a child's symptoms don't worsen but still con-
tinue to linger, it is best to be on the safe side and have them
checked by their doctor.
Also, always use antibiotics as they are prescribed, and
don't save the leftovers for the next time. Most importantly,
perhaps, never use another person's prescription.
"Don't use them if you don't need to," said Sonia Mc-
Nelis, Operations Management consultant manager of the
Madison Health Department, "Antibiotics can end up caus-
ing more harm than good. Only take antibiotics that have
been prescribed to you, as they have been prescribed and
dispose of any leftovers."
Help fight antibiotic resistance by taking some simple
steps to prevent the spread of infections. Wash hands on a
regular basis, when using the restroom, public areas, and
handling food.
As doctors become aware of increasing antibiotic resis-
tance, steps are being taken to try to solve the problem. With
new antibiotics on the horizon, there is progress being
made, however, for now the antibiotics that are available
need to continue to be prescribed properly and used correct-
ly.

Question: Which toothbrush is the best
toothbrush?
Answer: This is a great question that we get
asked all the time. There is a great deal of research
on toothbrushes. The trouble is, the studies are too
frequently paid for by toothbrush manufacturers.
I wonder about the findings.

What I can tell you is the best toothbrush by far is
a NEW toothbrush. NEW toothbrushes do a far
better job cleaning those hard to reach areas below
the gum line and in between teeth. Reports tell us
the average American buys a new toothbrush once
every 9 months (shame, shame). The American
Dental Association recommends replacing tooth-
brushes every 3-4 months. For people with
bleeding gums from gum disease it is
recommended to replace your brush every 6 weeks.
Try it for yourself! Go to the store and buy a new
soft bristle toothbrush....you may be amazed how
much cleaner your teeth become!

Smart Moves Can Help Women
Achieve Financial Goals
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
All of Us face challenges in our efforts to achieve our
long-term financial goals, such as a comfortable retirement.
But if you're a woman, the unfortunate truth is that you may
have more hurdles to overcome than a man. However,
knowledge is power, and as long as you are aware of what
you are up against, you can take steps to boost your
chances for success.
What are the special issues facing women? Here are a
few to ponder:
Longer life expectancies than men No matter when
you were born, your life expectancy is going to be longer
than that of your male age-group peers. Obviously, these
'extra" years of life mean more expenses.
Lower earnings than men In 2006, women who
worked full time earned, on average, 81 percent of what
their male counterparts earned, according to the U.S.
Bureau of Labor Statistics. In the future, this gap may nar-
row, because the earnings of younger women entering the
work force today are very close to those of men. But if
you've been in the workforce for many years, there's a pret-
ty good chance that your earnings trail those of your male
peers.
More time out of the workforce To raise their families,
women spend far more time out of the workforce than men.
During those years away, women are not contributing to
Social Security, pension plans or 401(k) plans which
means they'll have less retirement savings than men.
These figures may seem somewhat depressing, but
they don't have to lead to gloomy results. You can actually
do quite a bit to improve your financial fortunes. Consider
these suggestions:
Take an active interest in your investments. Whether
you are single or married, make sure you are familiar with
your investment portfolio. Know what you own and why you
own it. Work with a financial advisor who understands your
goals and risk tolerance and who can help you make the
right choices for your individual situation.
Contribute as much as you can to your retirement
plans. Each year, put in as much as you can afford to your
401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan. And
when you get a raise, increase your contributions. Also, if
you don't have a Traditional or Roth IRA, open one and try
to fully fund it each year.
Invest for growth. Some evidence suggests that
women may be more conservative investors than men. Of
course past performance is not an indication of future
results, but if you're going to achieve your long-term objec-
tives, you'll need to invest for growth and that means you'll
need a certain amount of your portfolio devoted to stocks,
which have traditionally outperformed all other asset class-
es. It's true, of course, that you can lose some or even all
- of your principal in stocks. But if you purchase a variety of
quality stocks and hold them for the long term, you can
potentially reduce the effects of market volatility and infla-
tion and potentially earn a rate of return that can help you
make progress toward your objectives.
You may not be able to single-handedly change the
social and institutional forces that can create problems for
women striving to achieve their long-term goals. But by
becoming an informed, active investor, you can better
improve your chances to go a long way toward achieving
the financial freedom you deserve.
