Rural North Florida is get-
ting a vital public resource as
Madison County and State of
Florida Emergency Manage-
ment officials break ground on
a new 2,550 square foot Emer-
gency Operations Center
(EOC) Thursday April l0 at 10
a.m. thanks to over $660,000 in
State funds provided by the
Florida Legislature.
The groundbreaking cere-
monies wil be held on site at
the Madison Industrial. Park
located at 1083 Harvey Greene
Drive in Madison, Florida.
"This EOC' project will
help ensure that Madison
County officials can meet the
needs of their residents each
and every day," said State
Emergency Management Di-
rector Craig Fugate. "It is so
vital that emergency managers
and first responders have a
safe facility to work in during
hazardous conditions."


The new facility will house
30 persons during activations
and wil be used for training
and coordination of first re-
sponders and emergency man-
agement operations daily ]Lo-
cal officials note how implor-
tant this project is for Madison
County


this EOC Building forward."
The project was made pos-
sible by a $660,154 General Rev-
enue grant provided by the
State of Florida, through House
Bill 7121 (HB7121), passed in
2006. The Madison County
EOC is one of 231local EOC pro-
jects currently being built


The Hazard Mitigation
Grant Program (HMGP) is a
federally funded program, ad-
ministered by the State of
Florida to help prevent future
losses of lives and property
damage due to disasters-
HMGP projects strengthen
public facilities and equip-
ment, schools, roadways, pub-
lic utility systems, water con-
trol facilities, and recreational
areas in communities through-
out Florida.
There are 67 county emer-
gency management programs '
in Florida. For information on

Management go to:

"We could not have begun
such a large project given our
small size and limited fiscal re-
sources," said Madison County
Emergency Management D~i-
rector Jim Stanley "We are
very grateful' to thie Florida
Legislature and State Emer-
gency Management for moving


statewide by the $20 malion
initiative. $15,375 in Federal
Hazard Mitigation Grant Pro-
gram (HMGP) dollars wil help
fund the architectural and en-
gineering costs. Additional
HMGP funds will be provided
tovvard the project as work is
completed.

Mike's desire to serve grows from a

During the 2007 legislative session,
Governor Charlie Crist signed into law
a $9.1 million Fixed Capital Outlay
(FCO) appropriation designated for
grants to construct, repair and main-
tain Florida's senior centers. After a
comprehensive application process that

ed to the Senior Citizens Council of
Madison County; Applicants were re-
quired to provide at .least a 25 percent
match of funds that the city and county
provided mostly in "like kind" services,
including property and site work
Director Rosa Richardson could not
be more grateful and excited. At the re-
cent Board of County Commissioners
meeting, Richardson used the word
"love" to fully express her appreciation
for all involved. In addition to the
board, city officials, county officials
and local contributors, Richardson
thanked Crist, U.S. Senator Bill Nelson
and hi aide, LnK Ba nske,e SteSR ::

Overall, the Florida Department of
Elder Affairs awarded funds to 21 se-
nior center grant applicants. "This is
tdhe first time in recent history that our
n ar center g ant poagramo th ak steo
Governor Crist and the Florida Legisla-
ture," said Secretary E. Douglas Beach
Ph.D. "Senior centers are truly the
backbone of the aging network, and my
only regret is that we were not able to
fund all the worthy projects."
An estimated 380,000 seniors visit
Florida's senior centers every year.
These centers provide a place where
older citizens can come together to so-
cialize and maintain involvement with
their community. Florida's 240 centers
provide a wide range of activities that
enhance~ the daily lives of seniors and
extend beyond traditional programs
and events to a family.

pageants, as well as other
extra curricular activities,
this is not what I see. I see
parents push the children
so hard that the "sport" is
no longer fun. The child is
so afraid of messing up
and disappointing the par-
ents that their concentra-
tion is on that fear, not on
having fun. I listen to par-
ents yell at the children
while riinning :up -and
down the basketball court,
or actually even "boo" oth-
er beauty pageant contes-
tants.
SWhile director of the
'Miss Madison pageant I
saw so many parents show
their disappointment of
"not winning" to their
children, that the child
was no longer proud of the
first runner-up or second
runner-up title,
That to me is so self-
centered and so un-nurtur-
ing.
Of course, when I
stepped off ~a stage with-
out a crown on my head, I
felt as if I had let my par-
ents down. Every child
feels/wnl feel like that. It
Then becomes the job of
the parents to take that
fear/pain away. God gave
you the privilege of be-
coming a parent. Take
that responsibility and
bless your children with

Win, lose, or draw -

Well ole Jacob has done it again, trying to speak on
something that he knows nothing about. Of course he
wants Madison to stay a dry county, he would never let
the unholy drink of alcohol touch his sanctified lips.
But for everyone else that believes in free enterprise
and the freedom to think for yourself I would encourage
you to do just that, make up your own mind. Florida
Liquor License fees generate over 2 Billion dollars a
year. Contrary to what Jacob says, it will bring revenue
and jobs to Madison.
It wil save gasoline. And our youth wnl not have
any easier access to alcohol than they do now. He speaks
so highly of Suwannee County, I suggest he move there.
I'm also sure he hates the fact that Wal-Mart plans to


come here, that Loves is already here and any other new
project that wil bring a much needed revenue to Madi-
son county. Look around Jacob, Madison needs it, and if
you still don't know what "it" is, then you need to come
out of your cubicle and look around. Madison county is-
n't a safe place to live because it's a dry county, it's safe
because our Sheriff Dept. and Police dept do an out-
standing job. Personally I don't drink, (not even social-
ly) but after reading your spew I might reconsider.

"We are so proud of you."
That is what really mat-
ters in the end.
When your children
Share 40 or 50 years old -
they will not remember if
they won or lost that game
to FAMU, or Robert E.
Monroe, or even to North
SFlorida Christian. What
they will remember is
i.how they felt, and how
YOU made them feel.
I am 39 years old, and
When I look back on my
childhood, I have nothing
but compliments and lov-
ing terms` of endearments
in my memory banks. I
never felt like I couldn't
measure up, and I never
felt like I was not good
enough. I KNEW my par-
ents were proud of me
and I KNEW my parents
loved me.
THAT is what is im-
portant in your child's
life.'i Not;-oelf ph611et,-
m~novies, I-Pods, andl soicial-
izing with friends each
and every weekend. Love
from family members will
always be the strongest in
the memory banks as life
goes on. Love them no
matter what and teach~
them to love themselves.
Along with the re.-
sponsibility of the parent
acting correctly, comes
the responsibility of the
parent teaching the child
how to act responsible.
There' should be no
back-stabbing or hard-
feelings. Everyone got out
there, tried their best, and
that is all that matters.
Teach your children
that they cannot ALi-
WAYS win EVERIY-
THING in life. Life is full
of hardships and disap-
pointments, along with
happiness and enjoyment.
How we act wil deter-
mine which we have hap-
piness and enjoyment or
disappointment and sad-
ness.
Be proud of who you
are and where you are.
Teach your children to be
proud of who they are,
and where they are in
God's love.
Until then....see you
around the town.


I had a lot of com-
ments on last week's col-
umn, "It Makes A Mother
Proud."
Comments ranged
from the picture of me and
my girls, or to the fact that
so many girls don't know
how to dress appropriate-
ly, and to the fact that some
girls (and parents) don't
know how to act
in/during/after a pageant.
That was when I got
the idea for this column.
Last week, I enforced
the fact of how I believe
that pageants are good for
young girls. I truly believe
that (when handled cor-
rectly) pageants can be-
come a true stepping stone
for many young girls and
women. The Miss Florida
America Pageant, alone,
gives thousands and thou-
sands of scholarship dol-
lars, each year, to contes-
tantS! and WlirinnerSi ~

died correctly."
Last week, I also spoke,
of how much I really en-
joyed pageants. Pageants
were truly my hobby and
past-time that I enjoyed. I
absolutely loved to enter
them. Butterflies in the
stomach, nerves, curlers,
make-up, pretty dresses,

was just plain fun,'. .,.. ..
'I had thought to ven-
ture into how I believe a
contestant (and their par-
ents) should act, however,
I thought I might get a lit-
tle too long.. (The staff
fusses at me if I write too
much and they don't have
enough room for jumps
and other things.)
However, with some
comments I received this
week I thought that
maybe I would just make
this a "Part II" column.
I mentioned that my
parents took me wherever
I wanted to enter a
pageant. They encour-
aged me, ~stood beside me,
and loved me, no matter
what the outcome. When I
walked off the stage (win,
lose, or draw), I was
hugged, kissed, told "Ilove
you"- and "You did great!"
I was always told, "Do
your best. That is all that
matters."
Many pageants I won.
Many pageants I didn't.
But my reception from my
parents was always the
same, "You did great. We
are proud of you."
This is the meaning
behind this week's col-
umn.

nies turning
.public to stay
.y awadfr steu
audits. Now, six
years later, Con-
.~g ress is going
back to try to
correct their
.mista ke.
What fre-
quently hap-
pens with hastily crafted legislation is
that unintended consequences result.
For example, the Community Redevel-
opment Act (CRA) was intended to
force lending institutions to make
home loans to people who were other-
wise poor risks. Nowgr~e are dealing
with a subpriniteloan.~c21 idd~~attat als.JR
part, brought about by CRA. Of course,
Congress will accept no blame for its
action, so count on thei fo point fin-
gers in another direction -; it's called
"pass the buck."
It's the same thing with energy. :
When Congress hauled the CEOs of the
five largest energy companies before an
investigating committee last week look-
ing intt high fuel prices; the united call
from the oil companies was for greater
access to proven petroletimi reserves
like the North Slope of Alaska. Con-
gress doesn't want to hear that mes-
sage, so they spent the time moving the
ball into other courts like high profits
and executive salaries. You there ex-
alted congressmen and .women: the
price of a commodity is set by the in-
tersection of supply and demand
curves if you want to lower the price,
then look for new supplies. This is
what happens when you let political
agendas interfere with economic prin-
ciples.
We must be doubly careful with thiS
man-made, global warming business.
We are told, in no uncertain terms, that
the crisis is at hand, the time for debate
is over, and the only question is what
we're going to do and how quickly. That
is a recipe for disaster. Tread lightly -
the road is mined. The first rule of gov-
ernance should be "do no harm.


cates that the root of this phrase comes
from the Book of Wisdom: "There is
one that toils, and labors, and makes
haste, and is so much the more behind."
The theory behind this proverbial
advice is that, frequently, when we get
in a hurry to do something, we mess
things up, making matters worse than
before. Cooler heads will prevail. If we
think things out and move more delib-
eratlely time permitting, we'll often
make better choices with fewer nega-
tive consequences. It even works in avi-
ation: altitude permitting, a cardinal
rule of flying is to turn loose of the con-
trols when the aircraft doesn't properly
respond to your inpilt. You'd be sur-
prised how often an aircraft will cor-
rect its own flight path. In the mean-
time, the pilot hasn't made matters any
worse.
How many single-vehicle accidents
does FHP investigate every year where
the driver over-corrects an out-of-con-

It is a pity that legislators don't un-

in and make a difference," you can al-
most count on the fact that they will
make matters worse over the long run.
There are many examples of this
type of legislation gone south. In 2001,
the mighty Houston-based energy firm
Enron collapsed. Congress was out-

they vowed to "do something" to ensure
that we'd never experience another En-

during this tedious walk fu life, a wvinner never quit and a quitter never wlus. in my heart,
i have won because I took a chance. That is what living is all about. The poem bielowv Is

Desidcerata

-- written by Max Ehrmi~nn in the 1920ls --

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
'and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as posisib~le, without surrender;
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak flour truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even to the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
they.are vexatiojus to thle spirit.

1- If you compare yourselfwubir other ,.
y ou ma\ become vain or bitter,
fort alw~a! there will bet greater and lisser persons tin~yerself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
~Keep interested in your own career, hoieveer humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time..
Exercise caution in your business~ affairs,
for the world is full of trikely;
But let this not blind you to wlhat virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical abolt lovie,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment.
it is as perennial as rhe grass.
Take kindly the co tnsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth,
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune;
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Ivany fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it' is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with Gjod,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,

With all its sham, deriedge~ oan dbken dredims,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.~

Spring Cleaning?
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
~You may or may not engage in many of the typical
activities of "spring cleaning" de-cluttering the attic, reor-
ganizing your closets, touching up the paint, etc. but you
can almost certainly benefit from "sprucing up" your finan-
cial situation.
: As yqgu. .urvey,.yoyy fipaycia landae ,je w gr~legis
bright yiou~want to tdy up?~ H-ere Igry a few suggeshon~is.
Clear your portfolio lof: "redundant": investments. Over time,
you may have built a sizable investment portfolio. But if you
have too many investments that look alike, you may actual-
ly be hindering your progress toward your goals. After all, if
you own a dozen stocks of companies in the same indus-
try, they're all likely to be buffeted by the same economic
forces. Look for opportunities to replace some of these
"redundancies" with different types of securities, taking into
account your risk tolerance and time horizon.
Organize your financial records. If you're like those of us
who file our taxes at the last minute, now is the perfect time
to organize your financial records, because you've probably
got them close at hand. And it's not just a matter of having
your brokerage and 401(k) statements in nice, neat piles.
Once you've got these documents together, you might see
opportunities to consolidate some of your accounts. For
example, you may have IRAs with different banks and
financial services companies, By moving them all to one
provider, and possibly rolling over an old 401 (k) into an IRA,
you could save some fees and reduce your paperwork, but,
more importantly, you may find that such a move actually
helps you better manage your investments. You'll know
exactly what you're invested in, and it will be easier to fol-
low a single investment strategy. Also, with all your IRAs in
one place, it will be much easier for you to manage the
required minimum distributions you must start taking when
you turn 70-1/2. (These distributions are not required for
Roth IRAs.)
Review your "systematic" investments. Many years
ago, you might have started systematically moving money
from your checking account into an investment. But per-
haps the circumstances of your life have changed and this
money could better be used elsewhere. Scrutinize your
automatic investments to see if they still make sense for
you.
Check your beneficiaries. Beneficiary designations on
financial documents insurance policies, IRAs, 401(k)s,
etc. are extremely important, because they supersede
even the instructions in your will. Over time, your family sit-
uation may have changed, through death, divorce, remar-
riage or the birth of new children, so you should periodical-
ly review all your beneficiary designations.
Examine your insurance coverage. When you have a
young family, you need a certain amount of life insurance
coverage to provide for some major expenses such as
your mortgage, college for your kids, perhaps some retire- ~
ment funds for your spouse. But when your children have
grown, your mortgage is paid and your spouse has
decades' worth of retirement savings, your insurance
needs may change considerably. At the same 'time, you
may find other uses for insurance. Take some time and
review your insurance coverage with your financial advisor.
By following these "spring cleaning" suggestions, you
can help put your financial house in order for the seasons
to follow. Take action soon.

"The earth laughs in~flowers, a flower
is love looking for a word. "
Unknown
Originally designed to ward off evil
spirits, the bride's bouquet has stood the
test of time by making an appearance at
possibly every wedding ceremony since
that of Adam and Eve. )
The bouquet the bride
carries down the aisle i1~)
the day she is married to :
the man she wil spend
the rest of her life with,
is itself steeped in tradi-
tion, with each flower B
having its own signifi- E"
chance. Just as each bride
is unique, so is the bou- -4
quet she uses to send an
implication of her own
anticipations in the mar-
riage, and it is a wise
groom that learns early **
to read those subtle mes- .
sages. *
As time has pro-
gressed, so has the significance of cer-
tain flowers in a bride's bouquet. Differ-
ent flowers with different meanings have
been incorporated into a bride's bouquet,
both as bearers of meaning within the
ceremony, as well as individual additions
to overall theme with color and delicacy
The bouquet itself is a symbol of
happiness. Ancient bridal bouquets were
made of herbs and plants, such as ivy; to
symbolize fideity and sige as the herb of
wisdom, with flowers added later, taking
on separate meanings of their own. Each
flower carries its own importance, some-
thing the bride would like to add to or re-
ceive from the marriage, or the groom


she is entering into it with.
While nowadays, most flowers chosen
for the bride's bouquet are chosen for col-
or and scent as opposed to any symbolic
significance, it can be still be a nostalgic
glimpse into the past when incorporating
flowers with importance into today's bou-
quet.
"Roses, carnations and lilies are the
most common we use
here," said Mark Webb of
The Madison Florist,
"My wife, Wendy, espe-
cially likes lilies because
of their beautiful scent
but we can customize the
g!B bouquet according to the
ft) bride's preferences.'
With roses mean-
ng anything from en-
thusiastic desire to inno-
cence and secrecy, and
lilies standing for either
wealth, pride or sweet-
... ness, it is, indeed, ac-
A, cording to the bride's
." preferences that the
bridal bouquet should be
designed. From Ambrosia, meaning reci-
procated love, Bachelor's Buttons carry-
ing celibacy and hope, Bluebells signify-
ing humility or Bridal R~oses for a happy
love, each flower chosen to be placed in
the bridal bouquet can bring with it a
very special gift to the couple's union on
this earth. Just as one's future mate
should be chosen only after much consid-
eration, so too should hopeful couples be
choosy in the way in which that love may
be portrayed to those that stand witness
to the days that wml come, gathers like
flowers on a bright summer's day

Greene Publishing, Inc.
From Friday, May 2, at 6 p.m. until

of "Fairytales and Fantasies," picked
for this year's Relay, will hopefully not
just be that when Madison's tight-knit

the important cause of
Imagining A Cure.

as a 24-hour event be- .
cause in the battle
against cancer, can- I uei
cer never sleeps, the Pl g
monies raised by I
the relay are intend- ye :i
ed specifically :for
the fight against can-
cer. Starting with the a
opening ceremony, this
overnight event includes
the survivor's victory' lap
and relays until the closing cer-
emony the next day. The sunset repre-
sents the remembrance of those who
have been lost in the battle against can-
cer continuing until the sunrise, which
represents the hope for a cure.
Lori Newman, chairman for this
year's relay, has experience working
with the American Cancer Society, be-
ing on the committee for the last five
years. A mother daughter team, both
Newman and her mom, Marcia Webb
have been participating with the Relay
for years. It is a cause close to both of
their hearts, having witnessed the bat-
tle on their own home front with rela-
tives. With Newman as chair and Webb
serving as Account and Registration
Chair after being on Madison Commu-

Answer: Dude! Do you wait for the engine to freeze up
in your car before you check the oil? Teeth are the. same as
checking the oil. If you only check it every 5 years it may
be too late for repair. Classically, dentists are taught that
tooth decay takes about two years from start to getting deep
into the nervee and causing an abscess. T~his is when it gets
painful and much more expensive to fix. It is a benefit to
come in for more frequent cleaning and exams. It saves
you money and your teeth in the long run. It is much
cheaper to catch problems early and fix them when they are
small and cheaper to fix.

experience as well. The rally is planned
to feature student talent such as singing,
stepping, and skits related to the topic of
abstinence education and to create com-

The separation of the classes is recom-

for the students to feel more comfortable
with the subject matter and in asking
questions with an instructor of the same
sex.
A total of three hundred seventy six
(376) students received the education with
topics of postponing sexual activity until


marriage, not becoming involved with
drug, alcohol, or tobacco use, building re-
lationships and setting boundaries with-
in those -relationships. There were also
topics of building successful relation-
ships based on learning what kind of
communication style best fit your per-
sonality and of those persons to whom
you are closest.
This knowledge enhances relation-
ships and helps avoid future conflict.
