Commissioners

Fill TWo Tourism

Council Vacancies
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The regular meeting of the Madi-
son County Board of County Commis-
sioners on June 4 included two appoint-
ments to the Tourism Development
Council to fill vacancies created by the
unanticipated resignations of three
tourism council members last month.
In other tourism business, Commis-
sioners also approved the agreement
between the Tourism Development
Council and the Greater Madison
Chamber of Commerce, which includes
provisions for an Executive Director
among other collaborative features.
Other items on the agenda included
renewal of the county engineering ser-
vices contract with Reynolds, Smith
and Hills and execution of the con-
struction contract with Peter Brown for
the Emergency Operations Center. The
board also issued a resolution in sup-
port of efforts to introduce Broadband
for Rural Healthcare into Madison
County
The issues behind the recent dis-
pute between the County Commission-
ers and some members the Tourism De-
velopment Council have not been for-
mally resolved, but for now, at least, two
of the three vacated positions have
been filled. The TDC, as the tourism
council is mostly referred, has designa-
tions associated with its member struc-
ture, specifically; the positions that are
vacated have to be replaced with some-
one from the same category
In this case, Jim Catron, a Madison
City Commissioner, replaced resigning
Madison Mayor Myra Valentine, who
satisfied the "Elected Municipal Officer
from Most Populace Municipality"
specification. The second position

Greenville


Teenager,

Pinetta Man



Injured

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A Greenville teenager and a Madi-
son man were injured in a traffic acci-
dent on Wednesday, June 11.
According to a Florida Highway Pa-
trol report, Katelyn Annette Scarboro,
16, of Greenville, was southbound on
US Highway 221 and making a left turn
onto US Highway 90.
At the same time, Danny R.
Richardson, 51, of Pinetta, was west-
bound on US Highway 90.
Scarboro reportedly failed to yield
the right of way to Richardson and the
front of her 1996 Toyota struck the
front of Richardson's 1997 Dodge pick,-
up at the intersection -of Highway 221
and Highway 90.
Scarboro was taken to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital, where she was
treated for her injuries. Richardson
was taken to Madison County Memori-
al Hospital for treatment.
Employees of the City of
Greenville and Madison County Sher-
iff's deputies assisted the Florida High-
way Patrol at the scene.
FHP Trooper Bill Grubbs was the
investigating officer.


Program Coordinator Vicki Brown, Madison County Emergency Management,

state. Since this image was taken only a few days ago, dozens of more fires have
occurred just in the Big Bend region alone.

Electronics

Recycling

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
As technology grows at a faster and
faster pace, so too does the waste creat-
ed from the flood of electronics that are
generated from those
changes. Televi-
sions, comput-
ers, game sys-
tems, cell
phones and
music players
alike are ulti-
mately re-
placed by the
coolest and
newest. Oddly, unlike
old couches and chairs that are com-
fortably tossed to the curb, people have
a tendency to store old electronics, as if
the electronics fairy might visit and
sprinkle dust over them, bringing it
back to life. Seriously though, when
this electronic waste is finally discard-
ed, it needs proper disposal as well, or
even better than that, needs to be in-
cluded in the expanding Madison Coun-
ty recycling efforts.
Effective July 2008, the Madison
County Solid Waste and Recycling De-
.partment will formally launch its up-
grade to collect electronic waste for
proper disposal and recycling. As not-
ed above, electronic waste includes
computers, monitors, keyboards, mice,
printers, fax machines, copy machines,
cell phones and other assorted electron-

Deer Causes


Rollover

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc..
A rollover, involving a car versus a
deer, ended with the two occupants of
the vehicle being transported to the
,hospital on Saturday, June 14.
According to a Florida Highway Pa-
trol report, Jontavia Pratt, 20, was trav-
eling west on the highway in a 1999
Ford when a deer entered the roadway
Pratt took evasive action to miss the
deer by steering aggressively to the left.
The Ford crossed the eastbound
lane and entered the south shoulder.
Pratt then overcorrected, crossing
both lanes and entered the north shoul-
der. The Ford rotated clockwise and
rolled as it entered a ditch.
The car came to a final rest on its
roof, facing north.
Madison County EMS treated and
transported Jontavia Pratt and the oth-
er occupant, Jaketa Pratt, to Madison
County Memorial Hospital.
The Madison County Sheriff's Of-
fice assisted at the scene.
FHP Trooper William Ernst was the
investigating officer.

Problems With Some Recent Articles -


Dear Madison. County:
I have a problem with some recent articles I have
been reading in your only source of news in your town.
Here's the situation: People are constantly com-
plaining about the test scores, the school system, school
board members, the teachers, administrators, etc. but
no one seems to have a solution to all the problems you
all are having. Is there no end to the complaints? How
often do you get good comments about these very im-
portant aspects that concern your children's futures?
Your students are not benefiting from the articles
that are being written almost weekly now. The reputa-
tion of your town and its educators is being questioned
it seems on a weekly basis. People have mentioned nepo-
tism as a big problem. Nepotism in the workplace oc-
curs when employers favor relatives in making employ-
ment decisions, with little to no regard for anything but
kinship. It is apparent that everyone in your town is re-
lated by blood or marriage. What do they expect to go on
there? I bet if you got rid of all the people related in
your school system you would not have anybody work-
ing there. Who would educate your children then? Call
the school board and find out what their policy is on hir-
ing and assigning employees before you make quick
judgments. Even better, check Federal discrimination
laws to see if they are in violation.
When it comes to insults and innuendos, you all lay
it on thick. Let me ask the complainers this and please
answer these questions truthfully and whole-heartedly
before you respond back to the editor and rip this one to
pieces. What did you do, how did you help, and where

A recent Madison
transplant, Mathews has
shown his dedication to
his community by his
numerous involvements
with its residents. After
serving with the Health
Department for a year .
and a half, Mathews has
now taken the position of
Smoking Cessation Con-
sultant for the Tri-Coun-
ty area. He will be
housed at NFCC, and ed-
ucation remains a top pri-
ority for Mathews as he teaches Taylor, Jefferson
and Madison Counties about the dangers of
smoking. Never missing an opportunity to let
the community know what he's up to, Mathews
sent out the message of upcoming classes with
his program. Starting June 26, there will be
classes held beginning at the Lee Community
Center. Mathews and his team will be working
with individuals, churches groups and business-
es interested in breaking the nicotine habit. The
health of Madison County is what is on Math-
ews' mind


were you when...
1. 2/15/08-Tense moments at Madison county high
school Friday as hand written letters threaten a shoot-
ing before day's end. Campus was locked down most of
the day.
How do you think the school employees felt espe-
cially the ones that have small children in other loca-
tions irn the county? Were they taking the necessary
steps to protecting your children? Do you know what
the procedures are in this situation?. Call the school
board and ask about that?
2. 6/08-When FCAT scores were released and chil-
dren found out they did not pass/graduate or your child
did not receive the grade they felt they deserved?
Did you help your child prepare and encourage
them during the entire year or did you wait until they
failed and then blamed it on the system? Did you check
on their progress during the year or did you just assume
they were doing well in all their academics?
3. Any given school year-When students cuss at
teachers/staff, sleep in class (instead of getting rest at
night because they sit up all night not doing homework
but on the computer (myspace.com) or God only knows
what else), fight each other, steal from the school and
each other, skip class/school, or get caught violating
one of the many rules of the Student Code of Conduct
that you probably have to sign and return at the begin-
ning of the year.
How did you handle the situation? Did you assume
your child was not at fault and blame it all on the teach-
ers and the administration? Did you go to the school
cussing and yelling at people to get your point across? I
bet you called the school board and filed a grievance,
how far did that get you?
People become educators because they have a desire
to enrich the lives of others. Your children spend the
majority of the school year in the presence of these ed-
ucators. Why is it so easy for you to bash them and then
expect them to continue to do their job with the same
pride and dedication? I bet when teachers retire from
your county they have had it more so with parents com-
plaining than the children they have taught.
I remember seeing in your paper the list of salaries
of your county workers. Here's a little information I
would like to share and no I am not an educator. The av-
erage teacher salary by degree in your state for a Bach-
elor's is $37,967 and a Master's is $46,322. That is nice I
know but check out the average salary of the people in
your town. The median income for a household in the
city was $27,875, and the median income for .a family
was $35,278 according to the national census. Check this
out, the annual salary range for a Correctional Officers
in Madison $30,807.92 $45,033.82. Most of the people in
Madison occupy these two fields. I know that in your
county they only pay once a month and teachers are off
during the summer. I do not know about you but my
month would surely run out before my money Wonder
if that is how they are living? I know some of them have
to have second jobs.
If you see one child get away with something or get
nominated for a position you think your child is more
suitable for, complain prior to the final decision. Wait-
ing until the students have walked across the stage and
venting after the fact just does not serve any other pur-
pose but to point fingers.
I know that you all stand behind your football team
religiously Why can't you give your educators and the
establishment the same courtesy? How often have you
made arrangements with a teacher to come sit in their
class or applied to be a substitute to see how students re-
ally act? Put yourself in their shoes. What would you
do? Quit complaining and make it happen.
If you really want things to change write the Presi-
dent and get Iiim to lower theses gas prices, write Con-
gress/Senate to abolish these standardize test that they
probably can't pass, but please stop bashing the system
unless you are doing something to change it. Hint:
Putting it in this paper is not doing it either, trust me.

Sincerely,
One for the Home Team


Friday The 13th Game And

Went With No Mishaps

Last Friday was Friday the 13th. That doesn't mean
anything to a lot of folks, but it's amazing how much it
means to a lot of folks.
I listen to the news on the television each morning
as I get ready for work. (Mind you that I KNOW that tele-,
vision media only comes in second best behind newspa-
per media) None-the-less -I listen to it as I get ready.
Last Friday seemed to be such a fun day to pick on Rob
Nucatola and his superstitions, with the "unlucky day"
It got me to thinking. Why exactly is Friday the 13th
considered bad? According to "Wikipedia, the free ency-
clopedia" A Friday occurring on the 13th day of any
month is considered to be a day of bad luck in English,
German, Polish and Portuguese-speaking cultures
around the globe. Similar superstitions exist in some
other traditions. In Greece or Spain, for example, Tues-
day the 13th takes the same role."
While some of us laugh at the thought of those that
truly fear this harmless day we would have to ask our-
selves, "What superstitions do we give in to?"
I for one have quite a few "Old Wives Tells" that I
obey My Grandma (Cora Lee Hartsfield Greene) taught
them to me well.
Growing up I spent New Year's Eve with my Grand-
ma every year. We spent the evening taking down the
Christmas tree and dragging it outside. You see, we
HAD to have it outside before the New Year rang. in or
we would bring all the bad luck, from that year, into the
new and upcoming year.
And you better believe that to this day my Christmas
tree is down, all decorations put up and tree drug.out-
side before January 1st chimes in. One year, about five
years ago, Paul and I accidentally forgot the big wreath
hanging on the mantle. It hung there through the New
Year and didn't come down until January 1. Well, every-
thing bad that happened that year, Cheltsie (our oldest
daughter) blamed on that wreath. She could jam her fin-
ger in basketball and she would blame, that Christmas
wreath.
Another superstition that my Grandma taught me
was to never wash your clothes on New Year's Day. "You
will wash someone out of your family," she would say
And again, to this day I spend all New-Year's Eve wash-
ing clothes so that New Year's Day there are no clothes
that I HAVE to wash.
On January 1, 1998 I called my Grandma on the
phone and said, "Grandma. I know I'm not allowed to
wash clothes today, but can I wash dishes? My sink is
, overflowing!" She laughed and said she was wondering
the same thing. Her sink was full of dirty dishes too.
So, between the two of us, we decided we would both
wash dishes and if something happened then we would-
n't know which one "did it." Three months later (to the
day) she passed away., I thought of those darn dishes as
I stood in her hospital room. And yep, you better believe
it; the dishes don't get washed anymore on New Year's
Day either.
My two daughters' favorite superstition is picking
your feet up when you cross a railroad track ... some-
thing about bad luck if you don't. So, every time we are
heading somewhere and they see that train track ahead,
they start yelling to pick up your feet. And they laugh
and giggle while doing it. That's what makes it so fun.
So remember, before you think someone else is silly
for doing or acting a certain way....take a step back and
look at your own life. We all act silly about different
things. But you know what? That's what keeps life in-
teresting and fun .... the silly little quirky things that we
come up with. Wouldn't life be boring without them?
So, the next time you cross a railroad' track, pick
your feet up and view it through a child's eye. Life will
look a little brighter!!!
Until then... .I'll see you around the town!

In the June 11 edition of the Madison paper, Tyrra B
Meserve erroneously stated that Elesta Pritchett is the

read former Town Mayor, as James Scarboro is the cur-

We Do.


The Madison County Carrier
& Madison Enterprise Recorder


noticed a volume
on his bookshelf
that captured my
attention be-
cause it had our
grandfather's la-
bel on the spine.
A closer inspec-
tion revealed that
the author had in-
scribed the book to his
friend, Judge Holdren,
in 1920. The title of
the book by Judge Le-
ander Stillwell.is The
Story of a Common
Soldier and describes
his military service in
the Civil War from
early 1862 until the
war's end nearly four
years later. It is a
memoir written al-
most a half century
after the fact based
upon letters to his par-
ents.


l'iFUUUiUU

Security
Joe Boyles
Guest Columnist


Lee Stillwell was a
young southern Illi-
nois farm boy of 18
when the war broke
out in the late spring of 1861. He delayed
enlistment until Lincoln's third call for
volunteers in order to help his father
plant and bring in the harvests for that
year. Then he joined Company D of the
61st Illinois Infantry, reporting for duty
in nearby St. Louis just after the new
year commenced.
The 61st Illinois served in the lesser
known western theater for the duration
of the war. Their one call to help rein-
force the eastern theater's Army of the
Potomac was reversed before the trans-
port had gone very far. Stillwell's most
significant battle was Shiloh in early
April 1862 at that point, he had been in
the army for barely three months. His
unit did play minor roles in the siege of
Vicksburg in the summer of 1863 and the
Battle of Franklin, Tenn. in December,
1864. Most of the remainder of the unit's
service was spent in occupation duty in
Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, and
Missouri keeping the peace and chasing
small raiding cavalry units.
Although young and small, Stillwell's
leadership qualities were quickly real-
ized. He was a private for only a short
time before advancing first to corporal
and then fourth sergeant. As more se-
nior members of the regiment were re-
tired, disabled, or* died, Stillwell ad-
vanced. By the mid-war point, he ad-
vanced to the important role of first
sergeant. At the end of the war he was
commissioned as a lieutenant before the
unit was disbanded.
To me, the important thing about this
memoir is the description of everyday
life in the ranks the highs and lows. Lee
Stillwell does not talk about grand strate-

I


gy because that
was not his per-
sL n+ective Time


.... and again he
| says that the
-" 'troops grumbled
"'. .-,1 | about one order
or another but
his job was to as-
sume, that the
commanders
ke knew what they
were doing and his job
was to obey orders. He
describes some of his
post-war conversa-
tions with comman-
ders like W. T. Sher-
c s man where they would
discuss some of these
matters years later.
Stillwell uses the
term "secesh" (short
for secessionist) that
the Union boys used to
describe their Confed-
erate counterparts. He,
spends, considerable
time talking about
food, army living con-
ditions, uniforms, and
keeping equipment
clean, all important
factors from his point
of view. At Shiloh, he learned the impor-L
tance of aiming low when firing his mus-
ket because with the din of smoke, the
enemy only yards away was invisible to a
common soldier in th6 ranks.
Lee Stillwell was never wounded but
he nearly died from malaria in the early
fall of 1863. Bad water and poor' rations.
contributed to the high non-combat casu-
alty rate of the Civil War. Two-thirds of
Madison County's 298 young men whob
didn't return from 'the war died from
some form of illness. What would be con-
sidered today simple, recoverable
wounds often turned fatal because of in-
fection.
At war's end, a young but much wiser
Leander Stillwell returned to his parent's
farm. He had sent home nearly all of his
army pay to assist the family, but the
farm had prospered and his father was
able to repay the loan. Young Stillwell
used the money to attend law school' in
Albany, New York before venturing west
to the Kansas frontier. There he helped
establish the legal framework for the
young state and became a legislator and
jurist. At some point, he became a men-
tor for my Grandfather who entered the
legal profession about thirty years after
Judge Stillwell.
Lee Stillwell died in 1936, well into
his ninth decade. Twenty years before he
would look back on a full life of achieve-
ments, honors and positions of public
trust, but recall that "to me my humble
career as a soldier in the 61st Illinois dur-
ing the War for the Union is the record
that I prize highest, of all, and is the
proudest recollection of my life."

coochee rivers will also be completed.
Boundaries of the Governor Drew Mansion Ceme-
tery and its grave locations will be located using ground
penetrating radar, and thereafter mapped using a global
positioning system (GPS). All tombstones will be noted,
recorded and marked for future avoidance. Each of
these resources-will be evaluated with reference to spe-
cific criteria for possible inclusion on the National Reg-
ister of Historic Places.
Edwin McCook, SRWMD public use coordinator and
the contract's administrator says, "The historic re-
sources located within District lands are a non-renew-
able resource of growing importance to our community
Intact historic ruins which are preserved within a rural
setting, such as the Governor Drew mansion site, are es-
pecially well suited for preservation and public inter-
pretation."
The contract will be executed by Bland & Associates,
Inc. (BAI), an archaeological and historic preservation
consulting firm with offices in Jacksonville, Florida, At-
lanta, Georgia, and Charleston, South Carolina.
In regard to the project, BAI Senior Historian Sid-
ney Johnston explains, "Governor Drew played a pivotal
role in the history of Florida, and his mansion was a
silent witness to this story We look forward to docu-
menting this historic treasure. We would also like to
take this opportunity to thank the residents of Madison
County and SRWMD officials in advance for their coop-
eration. It is an honor and a pleasure to execute this con-
tract on their behalf."
During the 1870s, Drew amassed a small fortune
from his sawmill and lumber business in Ellaville. He
became popularly known as "Millionaire Drew," a
moniker that gained him recognition as an important
North Florida businessman.
In the early-1870s, Drew was appointed, a Madison
County commissioner, and in 1876 he won the Guberna-
torial Election following a hotly contested vote recount.
As governor, Drew played a major role in state and na-
tional political events that eventually led to the "Com-
promise of 1877" and the end of Reconstruction in Flori-
da.
As governor, Drew counted among his successes the
creation of the State Bureau of Immigration, which
helped promote settlement. The Florida State Grange
was chartered with Drew's support, and his administra-
tion also oversaw the first implementation of county
and city boards of health.
The two-story mansion, surrounded by formal gar-
dens, was built in the late 1860's and was one of the first,
homes in the area to have modern facilities. It was de-
stroyed by fire in 1970, but the ruins still remain.


ity" the opening that was created by the resignation of
Doug McNicol of the Town Council of Lee, was covered
by the addition of Town of Lee City Councilwoman,
Shirley vonRoden. The third position has yet to be
filled.
Additional tourism business ori the agenda conclud-
ed with the unanimous approval of the agreement be-
tween the Tourism Development Council and the
Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce concerning
collaborative activities, including creation of a perma-
nent Executive Director for the partner project. The de-
tails are essentially centered on the common goal of
business growth through promotion where tourism is
considered a leading priority
In other business, the board voted to extend the con-
tract for county engineering services with Reynolds,
Smith and Hills for an additional three years, where Bill
Steves represents the firm locally The board also exe-
cuted the completed contract with Peter Brown Con-
struction for the construction of the Emergency Opera-
tions Center coming later this year to Harvey Greene
Drive off State Road 53 in Madison. And lastly, updates
on the suggested medical/commercial broadband com-
munications network will be forthcoming, although the
board did join efforts and issue a resolution so the
provider from Tallahassee can go after additional public
funding from a large Federal Communications Commis-
sion pool being used for those infrastructure purposes.

essential human resources and time that is required to
effectively teach and learn.
Whole Child Chair Phyllis Brinson recognizes these
characteristics of the community, having served as an
instructor at Madison County Central School and the
Madison Recreation Center located on 360A a few miles
south of Madison. In fact, Brinson has also organized
a summer program at the recreation center that in-
cludes a variety of recreational activities, as well as hot
lunches and learning programs, all at an extremely af-
fordable rafe.
"Everything we do must be targeted to the needs of
the child, meaning the "whole" needs of the child.
Summer programs, and virtually every activity for that
matter, should be tooled for that purpose. The needs are
too high and the resources are simply too few to do oth-
erwise," Brinson explained.
Among the areas discussed as priorities were pover-
ty/unemployment, parenting and housing. Actually,
the mission of Whole Child, which started from direc-
tives and funding obtained through the Lawton Chiles
Foundation, is broad and essentially all-inclusive. And
while this broad focus presents challenges, Madison
Whole Child intends to eat the priority pie chart one
section at a time. Then as root causes are identified, in-
tervention strategies can be generated, executed and
adjusted according to those established goals.
To assist in this effort, Madison Whole Child is re-
questing participation from parents and leaders
throughout the community, a little or a lot, since every
aspect of the organization's mission supports the ef-
forts of both. For more information about the activities
of Whole Child, as well as summer program availabili-
ty, simply call (850) 973-4633 or (850) 973-2867.

Don't Get Burned by Hot"
Stocks


Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones


Summer is officially here, which means, among other
things, that you should apply sunscreen when you go out in
the hot sun. But no matter what the season, you'll also need
to protect yourself from another potential source of burns -
"hot" stocks.

Stocks that seem poised tpo"takq pff" will aIwyays cap.tgre
investors' imaginations. But the lure of these stocks may be
particularly strong during, or following, periods of market
volatility, when investors are looking.for potential bright
spots.

However, it's, usually not such a good idea to chase "hot"
stocks and here's why:

You may be relying on an unreliable source.You can.
get a "hot stock tip" from anyone: your barber or your broth-
er-in-law, your cousin or your chiropractor, your dentist or
your dry cleaner. While all these people probably mean
well, they may not be the market experts on whom you wish
to rely, But even the so-called market "gurus" who tout
stocks in magazines, on television or on the Internet may
not be the. best forecasters, either, so you'll need to take
their advice with a grain of salt, especially as they know
nothing about your individual situation. '
You may be too late. You may actually find a hot stock
- but by the time you do, it's also been "discovered" by a lot
of other investors. This usually means, one of two things:
The stock has already peaked and is now starting to cool
off or the huge interest in the stock is driving up its price to
an unsustainable level, given the stock's earnings and
other factors.
You'll be "buying high." Here's the classic rule of investing:
Buy low and sell high. It's very good advice, except that it's
almost impossible to follow after all, no one can really pre-
dict when a particular stock has reached either its high or
low points. However, that doesn't mean you shouldn't at
least try to pursue stocks whose current prices, are low and
thus may be good buys. But if you're purchasing a hot stock'
- one that, almost by definition, has risen sharply-- you've,
probably already disqualified yourself from the "buy low"
part of the formula, which means your stock may have less
"upside" potential than other, cheaper stocks.
You may be buying a stock that doesn't meet your
needs. Some stocks whether they're hot, cold or in-
between are simply not right for your individual needs. For
example, if you've built a diversified portfolio, and you
already have the right amount of "growth" stocks, you might
be throwing your holdings out of balance and increasing
your.risk level to a point beyond your comfort zone by pur-
chasing another growth stock, no matter how hot it seems.
(Keep in mind, though, that while diversification is impor-
taht, it cannot, by itself, guarantee a profit or protect against
a loss.)

Ultimately, instead of chasing after hot stocks, evaluate
each stock on its own rfierits and prospects and on how it
fits into your existing holdings. A qualified financial advisor
can assist you in selecting those stocks that can help you
achieve your objectives. By doing your research, and by
getting the help you need, you may not always nab the
hottest stocks- but you'll be less likely to be scorched.

AROUND MADISON COUNTY


i '" " Kudos. To


Taylor Killingsworth


The Madison County Junior Auxiliary won the Martha Wise Award for its recycling Cans 4 Kids service pro-
ject. Pictured from left: Annette Johnson, Lisa Flournoy, Kim Davis, Gena Plain, Tonja-Davis, Marguerite Page,
Maria Greene and Janis Bunting.


Junior Auxiliary Wins National Award


Members of the Junior Auxil-
iary of Madison County were re-
cently presented a national award
for their development of a
new project during the National
Association of Junior Auxiliaries
annual education conference held
in Birmingham, Alabama.
JA's Cans 4 Kids project was se-
lected as the Martha Wise Award
winner. The purpose of the project
was two-fold: (1) to use funds gen-
erated from recycling to help chil-
dren in Madison County with ur-
gent health-care needs and (2) to in-
crease awareness of environmental
stewardship (recycling) for a more
sustainable future for Madison
County, Florida.
"The whole county pulled to-
gether to help the children and the
environment in Madison County,"
said Lisa Flournoy, the Cans 4 Kids
project chair. "We couldn't have
done it without everyone's active
participation."
JA reported recycling ,over 4,000
s. ot alun ihum and raising over
$2,500 to benefit the children in
Madison County. The Madison
County Solid Waste Department
also noted that recycling increased


41 percent over the past year in
Madison County, increasing Coun-
ty revenues by $12,000.
Junior Auxiliary's Cans 4 Kids
project ended on April 30th after
serving a full year of recycling.
"Now, we have developed a 'Re-
cycle 4 Charity' program, modeled
on our Cans 4 Kids project, and will
be presenting the program propos-
al to the Madison County Board of
County Commissioners," said
Flournoy. "It is our hope that other
charities carry on this project and
benefit as much or more than JA
did and continue educating the
public on the numerous benefits of
recycling in Madison County"
To help other non-profits who
may partner in recycling-with the
County save money, JA has donated
all recycling receptacles to its part-
ners, including all wire receptacles
at the Madison County Solid Waste
Collection Sites.
Madison County is home to the
region's area landfill serving Madi-
son, Taylor, Dixie anid Jefferson
Counties. Reducing waste in Madi-
son County, saves money, energy,
natural resources, the need for vir-
gin materials and increases the life


of the landfill. This is even more
important as Madison County is
also home to one of 33 first-magni-
tude springs in Florida; Florida
has more first-magnitude springs
than anywhere else in the world.
Flournoy said Madison County
has everything to .gain
by preserving our county through
the simple act of -recycling and re-
ducing waste.
According to the National As-
sociation of Junior Auxil-
iaries, eligibility criteria for the
Martha Wise Award require an
outstanding new project initiated
during the year. It should be a com-
munity service, which builds both
a better community and a stronger
chapter simultaneously. The pro-
ject should also be bone that demon-
strates initiative, ingenuity, and
imagination in searching out
needs in the community.
The Junior Auxiliary of Madi-
son County is a non-profit organi-
zation committed to serving young
children and families in need. For'
more information on JA and to

jects, visit www.jaofmadison-

55 Plus Club Hosts Local Candidate Introduction Lunch


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Thirty-six candidates,
and over a hundred in at-
tendance, shared a very
tasty lunch and a hand-
shake or two during the


June 11 meeting of the 55
Plus Club. Program Chair-
person Myra Valentine
hosted the gathering.
She is' also familiar with
being a candidate during
her successful campaign


Tutenm's% I Pick


Potatoes


Squash


Sweet Onions


for Commissioner of the
City of Madison.
The meeting was not a
political rally in the tradi-
tional sense, as candidates
were limited to simple in-
troductions. It was more
to allow members and
guests to "put faces with
names." There was still
an air of excitement
though, as both candidate
and voter gave each other
a brisk once-over.
The next date men-
tioned for a full venue
where candidate com-
ments are allowed is the
upcoming Red, White and
Blue Heritage Festival


scheduled for Saturday,
June 28 at 10 a.m., to be lo-
cated on the Courthouse
lawn and running down
Range -Avenue in down-
town Madison.
The 55 Plus Club, which
has offered an impressive
array of meeting topics
and guests over the last
ten months, will now take
a two month break, resum-
ing meetings in Septem-
ber.
A grateful community
of seniors and citizens
thank both organizers and
the board, which was also
the lunch sponsors for the
June 11 meeting, for this

Kuno: derived from the Germanic Kuoni meaning
"brave" or Kun; Chinese for "Earth." By either defini-
tion one can clearly see the bond that is between a horse
and her rider. So, is the tale of a young lady, Taylor
Killingsworth and her barrel racing horse, Kuna. To-
gether the two have learned that it takes practice, lots
and lots of practice, to get where one wants to go in life,
whether it be over the barrel or beyond.
Killingsworth is only 11 years old, and entering the
sixth grade, but already she has a good grip on her fu-
ture. Barrel racing for the last two years, Killingsworth
qualified for State Championship, but decided to hold off
for another year so she can practice just a bit more be-
fore she takes on this daunting challenge.
"I know I can do it," said Killingsworth about her in-
vitation to the youth world competition, "But I just want
to practice more to get better, more accurate, before I go.
I'll be competing against older girls who have been rid-
ing longer. Some of their best times are at 15 and I just
got best at 19. I'd like to bring that down, so I'm going to
practice more."
Inspired by friend, Ashley Norwood, Killingsworth
has learned the majority of her skills by watching and
practicing with the friend that she looks up to so highly
Though Killingsworth has taken lessons from instructor:
Kim Shay in Clyattville, Georgia, most of her learning
has come from Norwood. She started on the lead line
and progressed forward from there.
"Mostly, its about the horses," Killingsworth said," I
like spending time with my horses."
Nabbing third place in her last competition,
Killingsworth is learning quickly that the right attitude
can carry one far, and practice is what gets one over the
finish line.

ABSTINENCE EDUCATION REPORT CARD


Since school year 2005-2006, abstinence education has been taught at Madison County Central School as a result of grant funding through the efforts
of the Madison County Health Department (MCHD). For the purposes of our grant, abstinence is a lifestyle that promotes self control, character build-
ing and a solid foundation for friendships that promotes a committed love within the context of marriage. The outlying schools have been included in some
of the education that taught the 4th and 5th grade students internet safety, stranger danger and safe touch principles. Rallies with motivational speakers
as well as classroom education have been utilized to reach the 6th, 7th and 8th students with the important message of getting their education now and
postponing sexual behavior until marriage. The Madison County School District has been supportive in providing the classroom space and two teach-
ers, Charlie Barfield and Jackie Bradley, to assist us in the classes for the school year of 2007-2008. The other teachers were Elmire Cantey, Judy Hill,
Leatha Gervin and Tracey Kelly from the School Health Team of the MCHD and Jackie Watts of Fellowship Church. The WAIT (Why Am I Tempted) cur-
riculum was used throughout the month of February to instruct 376 students age 12-17 years of age.

The curriculum uses a multi-level approach to the topics of self control, setting boundaries, character building skills, and refusal skills. The information
gathered from the pre and post test revealed that many of the students were exposed to information they previously did not know or had a wrong belief
about from their peers. The mission statement of the MCHD is to reduce the number of teen pregnancies and decrease the incidence of sexually trans-
mitted infections (STI) in Madison County. We believe the younger a student learns to establish goals, realize their strengths, develop refusal skills, and
understand the tools they need for healthy relationships, the more likely they are to practice the concepts now. Those same principles will benefit them
as they grow and develop throughout the rest of their lives.

We named our program "Abstinence Is Everybody's Business" because it is truly just that---everybody's business. If you live in Madison County, you bear
the cost of teen pregnancies. At our community rally on April 12, at Van H. Priest auditorium, Craig Wilson of Healthy Start, presented information on just

As you absorb the information from the slides, you will be surprised at how much you did not know about teen pregnancies in Madison County. Now you
see why this is everybody's business because the problem affects all of us at some level. Many of you may say that abstinence education does not work
and teens will have sex anyway but we know from the statistics that it does make some difference. It is a proven statistical fact that the pregnancy sta-
tistics decrease when there is an active abstinence education program in the schools. Some of them will continue to have sex, but some will make the
decision to postpone sexual activity at least for awhile.

Our youth are constantly bombarded with sexual content messages from the media who know that sex sells and do not care whether lives and futures
are ruined just so they get their dollars from their products. We, as caring communities of adults, must take responsibility for making sure our teens hear
the truth about abstinence education. Many of our youth do not get guidance from home and we as a community must take responsibility for that fact
also. Otherwise, we all pay one way or another.

If you would like to be involved in our youth, contact your church leaders and ask them how you could work together to make a difference. New programs
can be started with minimal cost or at least an amount that could be raised with fund raiser activities as this would be a great project for our youth. Con-
tact the Madison County Health Department at 850-973-5000 for information on ways that YOU CAN HELP. Check out our website: www.aieb.us

Planning a wedding is difficult enough without trying to keep track of all
of the rules of etiquette that seem to come and go. MAlaids of honor, for
example, are no longer responsible for hosting the bridal shower. Almost
anyone can take on the task now, including the bride's mother. In addition to
knowing who is responsible for what, you will also have to send out
invitations. Here are some firm, fast rules to ensure you handle them
properly.

HEALTH & NUTRITION


Exercise Caution With Prescription Drugs


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Currently both presidential frontrunners, John Mc-
Cain and Barack Obama, have promised to repeal the
federal law banning foreign drug importation. No sur-
prise, polls confirm that a majority of Americans want
access to the overseas supply of cheap generics of this
country's most popular pills. The question remains,
however, is this financially and physically, beneficial,
especially in the long run?
There is no question that drug prices must be ad-
dressed. In fact, many say that the only reason people
don't clamor constantly about affordable drugs like they
talk about high gas prices is simply because the majori-
ty of American's aren't as adversely affected by it. But
for those who are affected, especially those on fixed in-
comes or in that dangerous income zone between Med-
icaid, Medicare and a good private insurance plan that
includes prescriptions, the affects can be devastating,


even life threatening.
McCain's message refers to extending the free-mar-
ket to "permit importation to keep competition vigor-
ous."
The question here comes not so much from the poli-
tics of open markets, rather from the actual savings that
will occur and the safety of the products. The Congres-
sional Budget Office estimates acknowledge the huge
savings being discussed.
And what about the threat of counterfeit drugs?
Who will police this importation? The World Health Or-
ganization already estimates that ten percent of the
world's drug supply is counterfeit. And according to the
Joint Terrorism Task Force publications, the terrorist
group Hezbollah has already been caught funneling
counterfeit pills through Canada into the U.S.
The message from Obama's camp is less focused on
open market debate, being more about their ongoing
message regarding affordable healthcare.


The goals are the same: make prescription drugs af-
fordable. Of course, candidates sincerely promise that
the process will be secure, and that imported drugs will
be checked for safety, although the Food and Drug. Ad-
ministration is already overwhelmed and has a reputa-
tion of its own under scrutiny.
There were several states that lifted bans on drugs
from Canada but when it was discovered that the Cana-
dian government wasn't regulating it, however, the ex-
citement turned to caution. The Internet, too, has been
a bastion for illegal drug access. Dealers, and even
teens, use stolen credit cards to flood high schools with
drugs like Xanax.
The bottom line is that "If it sounds too good to be
true, it probably is." Hopefully clear minds will prevail
and alternatives will be discovered. In the meantime,
please be careful.

medicine in Madison
County and good health
from birth to death.
From this process, two
groups have emerged,
namely the Madison
County Health Disparity
Task Force and the
Madison County Health
Council.
Each organization is
comprised of profession-
als dedicated to conquer-
ing the root cause of
problems, realizing that
an even an under-budget-
ed, under-staffed, over-
burdened health network
must serve the needs of
the community. Conse-
quently, they volunteer
their time, and recruit
others with needed skills
(this reporter is flattered
to be counted among
them), in order to stay
on mission and make
sure that no body falls
through the cracks.
In the case o"' these


two groups, there is a
high degree of shared
goals because the Task
Force is essentially ad-
dressing the same issues
that exist in all commu-
nities but with the added
challenge of dealing
with the enormous addi-
tional presence of these
common ailments in the
county's minority com-
munities and all those
living in the heart of the
poverty culture.
Tobacco and drug
prevention, teenage


pregnancy, dental ser-
vices, alcohol and obesi-
ty are challenges faced
everywhere in the re-
gion. But in areas of
deep poverty, especially
in those neighborhoods
with people living and
mixing more closely like
several minority pockets
in Madison County, prob-
lems like HIV/AIDS are
spreading at near-epi-
demic proportions.
Of course, combating
the poverty culture at its
roots will take time. In


the interim, organizers
request that residents
look for, and support,
the efforts of the Madi-
son County Health Dis-
parities Task Force and
the Madison County
Health Council. Both
express enormous appre-
ciation for the continued
faith-based support each
has received ask anyone

ing a referral to call or

12 And Under Boys Win District 2



Cal Ripken Baseball Championship


The Madison County Babe Ruth League hosted the
District 2 Cal Ripken 12U Baseball tournament this past
weekend with great results. The tournament included
district representatives from Jefferson, Madison, and
Wakulla counties. The tournament was a huge success
as the 12U Madison County All Stars are now the 2008
District 2 Champions, and will now battle for the state ti-
tle in Jacksonville beginning July 10th.
In the first round of double-elimination play on Fri-
day night, the Madison County All-Stars defeated the
Jefferson County All Stars 7 to 3. Cullen Gudz started as
pitcher in'the first game and no one was disappointed as
he pitched five shutout innings while striking out ten
batters along the way In the second game Saturday
morning, Zack Money picked up the 14 to 3 victory over
the Wakulla All Stars. Zack pitched three strong in-
nings, striking out seven while allowing only one earned
run. In the 11 to 0 championship victory on Sunday
morning, Cullen Gudz was again brilliant as he struck
out nine Wakulla batters over four shutout innings. As
you can see, the pitchers were hot, but the bats were just
as hot. The team combined for a .481 batting average,
eight home runs, and 32 runs scored.
For the weekend Jarrod Burns batted a whopping
.857 while reaching base safely in all nine plate appear-
ances. Jarrod had one home run, two walks, three RBI's,
and seven runs scored. Justin Briggs, the All Star sec-
ond baseman, batted an even .500 with two runs scored
and two sacrifices.
Zack Money also batted .500 with three home runs,
eight RBI's, and four runs scored. The All-Star catcher,
Patrick Bowen, batted .400 with two home runs, four
RBI's, and three runs scored. Eric Bright also batted
.400 with five RBI's, three runs scored and one home
run. Eric's home run was his first ever and would you
believe it was a grand slam. Way to go EB.
Cullen Gudz batted .375 for the weekend with three
runs scored, and Austin Bass pitched in with two runs
scored and a .333 batting average. Brandon Hammond
ended the tournament batting .333, and Tres Copeland of
Greenville, batted .300 with an RBI and two runs scored.
Cody Lange added his first ever home run, a huge two
run shot, and Akevious Williams, the lead off batter for
the All Stars, had seven runs scored while driving in
three. DaVontee Gallon had a big run in the final game
on Sunday, and Drew Richardson who has been on the
injured reserve list with a broken ankle got his first
plate appearance in five weeks.
Stay tuned as the 12U Madison AllStars continue
irlquest'JfiIlf 'th ArfEe State tournament to be held
in Jacksonville.
The 12U Madison All Stars would like to recognize
the following for their support and hard work during
this exciting time. Without their help, this tournament
would not have been a success.

Question: My sister has dry mouth and her dentist,
suggested Biotene mouthwash. Isn't water just as
good"

Answer: I tell patients about Biotene every week.
The trouble I hear about water is that it only "wets your
whistle" for 5-10 minutes. Then you have to hit the
bottle again. That is fine at home, but then you have
to do all that explaining at church.

Seriously though, dry mouth also called Xerostomia is
quite uncomfortable for some people. Xerostomia can
be a result of radiation, medication, or illness
including diabetes and Sjogrens syndromes. There
are over 400 medications known to contribute to dry
mouth. Biotene has introduced a number of products
that help. The mouthwash has many ingredients
including enzymes and surfactants that mimic natural
saliva. Patients tell me that they love Biotene because
it moistens their mouth for a few hours and they
would never go without it. They also have a
convenient mouth spray to use at church.

Spaying And Neutering
Experts, say the most impor-
tant thing people can do to help
their pets is to get them spayed or
neutered. This means the animals
get an operation, to be sure they
can't have kittens or puppies. They
are asleep during the operation, so
they aren't scared or in pain.
Spaying and neutering are so
important because there are so
many animals needing care and
not enough homes or shelters for
them.
One cat or dog can have many
litters in its life. Its kittens or pup-
pies can have many litters, too.
This can end up creating thou-
sands of new cats and dogs.

Building Blocks Summer Camp Makes Learning Fun


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Every summer Madison County
faces the same challenge. School is out
and parents are left searching for day-
care, and activities in general, for their
children. In an effort to address this
critical community need, the Lee Town
Council is pleased to introduce the
Building Blocks Summer Camp.
Built on a collaborative curriculum
sponsored by 4-H, the first class kicked-
off June 9. Located at the Old Lee
School gym, the day camp offers afford-
able, constructive, educational, safe and
definitely fun activities for children ages
6 to 12. The program has very conve-
nient hours coinciding with the work-


day, opening at 7:30 a.m. and closing at
5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday
"We wanted a place that was fun for
the kids of course, but considering the
needs Qf the community, we searched for
a way create a program that was benefi-
cial to the ongoing needs of the child.
When Michael Curtis and I met, I asked
Michael to assist me and then when we
came together with Heather Johnson at
4-H, it all came together. She provided a
proven curriculum in many areas that
are essential to developing young minds
and bodies. And our Camp Director
Melinda Richie is absolutely the best,"
Archambault explained.
The standout among current needs
remains scholarship sponsors. "To


make Building Blocks really serve the ,
whole community, we must include chil-
-dren who lack the resources to attend.
So although the weekly fee is only $50,
which for this type of program is an ex-
ceptional value, especially considering
that it includes a hot lunch and a
healthy snack daily, we gratefully appeal
to the community for a comfortable do-
nation. A contribution of between $50
and $500 to match the weekly and full
summer rates would be wonderful. It's
so important to the lives of these chil-
dren," Archambault added.
This reporter is extremely proud to
have had the opportunity to work closely
with this project, sharpen it's commmuni-
ty message, even having the honor of


suggesting the name "Building Blocks,"
which again was inspired from the strat-
egy of combining themed learning
weeks, each representing essential
"building blocks" in the development of
the boys and girls being served.
More than that pleasure, however, this
reporter joins all those near the project
in offering continued kudos to Lee Town
Manager Cheryl Archambault, as well
as Lee Deputy Clerk Janice Miller, for
pushing the council goal from priority
to reality. To make a reservation or dp-
nation today, again simply call (850) 971-,
5867.

unattended.
* Put out the fire with water.
Make sure
