Supervisor To Present Alcohol Petitions

For Verification December 16


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On Dec. 16 at 5 p.m.,
Madison County Supervi-
sor of Elections, Jada
Woods Williams, is sched-
uled to present the results
of the alcohol petition ver-
ification to the Board of
County Commissioners. If
the petition tally were suf-
ficient, the board would
then be required to hold a
countywide vote to decide
whether' or not to allow
hard liquor and wine to be
sold in Madison County.
The following UN-
OFFICIAL numbers had
been tallied as of 10 a.m.-
on Tuesday, Dec. 9:
Valid Petitions: 2683


Rejected Petitions: 457
(Duplicates-243, Not
Registered-115, Not Dated-
34, Ineligible-20, No Resi-
dential Address-19, Bad
Signature-17, No Birth
Date-5, Incomplete-4)
The Supervisor of
Elections Office has
demonstrated exacting
care during this count,
also making it absolutely
clear that the numbers
above are unofficial and
that the process is not
complete until presented
to the board. They are of-
fered here for information-
al purposes only.
Based on the excep-
tional number of rejec-
tions noted above, espe-


cially considering the vast
number of duplicates, if
the verification process
were declared official to-
day, the petition would
most likely fail to qualify
In fact, based on the infor-
mation above, the current
level of rejections is over
three times too many for
the petition to pass based
on the range of voter roles
that have been discussed
for qualification use.
The Dec. 16 meeting
will be held in the board-
room of the' Courthouse
Annex.

Madison Lights Up '

For Christmas
A stroll through downtown Madison on Saturday night,
Dec. 6, 'showed "Light Up Madison"-to be a special event. The
city and businesses had lights displayed down Range Street, il-
luminating the very cool night air. Hot chocolate and horse-
drawn sleighs made one.feel the season of light in a way usual-
ly experienced in more northern latitude.
The friendliness of business owners .and the cheerfulness of
friends meeting friends on-the walk were especially .gratifying.
Strangers saying "hi".and children's wide eyes viewing the po-
tential gifts and decorations are what make Madison a special
place this time of year..
Congratulations to all who helped make Light Up Madison
a wonderful time for all who were downtown during the week-
end evenings.

"I hear people berate small towns from time to time. I
hear longing in their voices for speed as I pass. Old men
in britches on benches, lazing in the afternoon haze, be-
moaning where they might have gone. Young girls in
short skirts, swinging and flirting with spring break
dreams and where they may someday take them. It is
somewhere in between that I am searching for my key.
'A home with roots deep enough to support a family
tree. Somewhere quiet, hidden, wholesome. Something
classic, stable, withstanding.
"Growing up in the Big City, with all of her flickering
lights and fleeting glitter leaves behind a taste for real
down home soul food. Ah, to see whitewashed'church
steeples with stained glass sanctuary and signs of daily
promise instead of 7-11s and'All Live ways of blocking
out insecurity. Sometime after the birth of my first brave,
I lost the longing to be part of those 'funky kicks going
down in the city." Now, I would like to know my neigh-
bors first name, and likewise for them to know mine.
'As for those sewing circles distributing whispers, I
think there might lay an underrated comfort in them. Old
mothers know best how to get the stains out and keep
one's laundry clean. They take good care of their own.
They are not afraid to tell you where yours have been and
who they've been seen riding with. On one Main St., it's
hard not to be seen and, being new, it's not like I thought
I wouldn't be noticed.
"It is for these little seeds that I wish'to plant and
watch grow that we have come. It is for them that I want
to trade in my racing helmet for some gardening tools.
I'm looking for a peaceful road to turn off on. Maybe one
that leads up to an old wood house, built with experience
and tempered with history, a home where my key fits. A
little spot to sow that welcomes us.
'A blessed little town."
Tyrra B Meserve December 1q, 2007
It has been one, year
since I joined Greene
Publishing, Inc. as a lo-
cal staff writer. One year
has passed since my family
and I moved here. One year
has, passed and I-' one
,year older andcriot quit4was
wet behind the ears. A lot
has changed since first
stepping foot as a new "im-
'plant" on Madison soil.
Some changes have been
for the better, some still
pain me when I think
about them, but all in all,
I'd like to believe that I've
learned a lot in this year
that has been a flash inside
eternity
Nobody knew how scared
I was when I first came to
Greene Publishing, Inc., Photo by town. Friends that have
Tyrra B Meserve, November 28, 2008 known me through the
Two itty bitties looking years chuckle when I tell
for snacks along the road them for, to them, I am the
of life. "Queen of Change." A mot-
to of "No fear" has governed me since youth, it was
even on my favorite T-shirt I wore when rollerblading.
"I am not scared, I am not afraid, I am an animal and I
will eat you if I have to." But this pace of life is foreign
to me, and like any new car on the first day being dri-
ven, shifting gears is sometimes jerky, taking practice.
Truth is, I might have been just a wee bit nervous, but to
show it would have been a mistake.
Not that I haven't made plenty of those. In this past
year I have spent a lot of time cutting my. teeth in nu-
merous areas of my life. Through these times, I've lost
some'of what I thought were true friends, but I've also
gained many I would never have known were there if
not for their hands held out in the darkness.
As my Dad would say, "You'll never know where you
stand until the dust settles," and kicking up dust is def-
initely more my speed. Just because there's a good dri-
veway to park in doesn't mean that she doesn't need to
be taken out on the winding road and opened up full
throttle every once in awhile, just remember when to
shut her down before she overheats.
There are changes in the air, all around and mean-
while I'm still learning how to merge. Traveling the
road of life, I believe it is the responsibility of each to
watch for oncoming traffic. As Robert Fulghum once
said "And it is still true, no matter how old you are,
when you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands
I would like to thank those that have stood by me
with patience in this past year. I want to thank the
friends, both old and new that have stood true, and
promise that some of those mistakes will never be repeat-
ed. I would like to promise that this next year will be one
in which the dust will settle and all roads will go as smooth
as silk. I would like to, but I'm not the One in the driver's
seat. That is possibly the most important lesson that I have
learned over this last year, when to hand over the keys. I
am not in charge of steering, I ride shotgun. The best I can
do is holler out warnings when I perceive a hazard in the
road, and try to keep a decent song on the radio. In the
meantime, I've seen some really beautiful scenery and hey,

One of the

Crossing that

Security
Joe Boyles
Guest Columnist


other sovereign country is an invasion
and brings another calculus into an al-
ready complex situation. That is a
thorny issue we face in Afghanistan
where al-Qaeda and Taliban fighters
operate from the mountainous border
with Pakistan.
This problem is not new to warfare.
We faced it in Vietnam where the west-
ern border of South Vietnam joined
Laos and Cambodia, supposedly neu-
tral countries protected by UN man-
date, were logistics and staging bases
for the North Vietnamese.
For most of our nation's 16 year
(1959-75) war in Southeast Asia, it was a,
border war. The North Vietnamese
used "neutral" Laos and Cambodia to
form a logistics pipeline known as the
Ho Chi Minh Trail to provide supplies
to the Viet Cong insurgents. When the
VC were destroyed during the February
1968 Tet Offensive and the North Viet-
namese assumed total responsibility
for the war, they used Cambodia as a
base of operations from which to at-
tack South Vietnam. When the NVA
suffered a defeat in the field, they
would retreat across the border to sanc-
tuary and regain their strength.
For the most part, our attacks
against these enemy sanctuaries were
limited to air power and they weren't
particularly effective. As someone
once described, it was like trying to
swat a fly with a baseball bat. When we
did authorize ground forces to attack
across the border of Cambodia in 1970
to destroy enemy safe-havens, the
Nixon Administration was pilloried by
the press. It was perfectly all right for
the North Vietnamese to invade and
use Laos and Cambodia, but not the
United States. Go figure.
A century earlier, my. ancestors
were caught in a border war between
Kansas and Missouri. The issue was
whether or not the soon-to-be state of
Kansas would be a slave state or free.
The, Holdren family among many ar-
rived in Johnson County Kansas in
1858 from southeastern Ohio. They op-
posed slavery. To the east was Jackson


County Mis-
- ,"I ' souri, and. Mis-
souri was a
. " slave state. The
crucible of the
Civil War was
fought on this
border.by insur-
gents from both
sides well be-
fore the Confed-
erates fired on
Fort Sumter. It was an ugly fight, as
most insurgencies are, with atrocities
galore. "Bleeding Kansas" was born.,
When the war was bver, the losing side
broke up into gangs and continued the
.fight by robbing banks and trains. The
two most notable were Jesse James and
Cole Younger. The distance between in-
surgent warfare and law-breaking is
very narrow.
In Iraq, there was a hint of a border
war with foreign fighters and logistics
from Syria to the west and Iran to the
east, but for the most part, the insur-
gency was waged from within. Not so
Afghanistan where the, rugged tribal
regions of western Pakistan offer
sanctuary to the enemies of freedom..
From that sanctuary, our enemies can
lick their wounds, replenish their
stocks, and plan their next cross-bor-
der attack.
'The incoming Obama Administra-
tion will find this is a difficult nut to
crack. Following the 9-11 attacks in
2001, there was a consensus to attack
the al-Qaeda sanctuaries in
Afghanistan and depose the Taliban.
This was relatively easy to accomplish,
but our enemies merely found another'
area from which to operate. After sev-
en years and no end in sight, our NATO'
allies are growing weary and may soon
leave the job totally in our hands. For
the most part, they won't take any of
the tough fighting jobs as' it is.
If there is any one man who can de-
vise a strategy which could lead to vic-
tory, it is General David Petraeus who
now commands Central Command
whose responsibilities include
Afghanistan and Pakistan. Petraeus is
the miracle-worker who turned the sit-
uation in Iraq around in less than two
years, but the situation in Afghanistan
is much different.
Obama and the Democrats pilloried
Bush over Afghanistan. Soon, they will
be in charge and the problem will be
theirs to handle. How much leeway will
they give Secretary of Defense Bob
Gates, Petraeus and the ground forces
commander General McKiernan? Will


they be able to keep the
Europeans in the fight?
Will they support reforms
and the Karzaid govern-
ment? Can they accept a
low-level stalemate in the
region? How will the new
government in Pakistan
and their conflict with In-
dia (both nuclear powers)
be handled?
Lots of questions.
This much is for sure --
Afghanistan and its bor-
dering neighbors repre-
sent real national securi-
ty challenges for the new
president.

ted to tracking down these criminals and putting an
end to their victimization."

Everyone Can Win with
Charitable Gifts
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones :
When you give a gift to a charitable group, you are
rewarded by the knowledge that you're helping an
organization whose work you support. But you can also
get a "bonus" from your gift - in the form of tax bene-
fits.
Specifically, your donations to charities that have
received 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status are usually tax
deductible, assuming you itemize your tax return. And
as long as your total contributions for any one year are
50 percent or less of your adjusted gross income,
there's no limit on the deductions you can take for yoir
gifts to public charities.
Furthermore, your contributions may entitle you to
more than just a tax deduction in the year in which you
make your gift. If you decide to donate shares of stock,
a piece of real estate or another asset that has
increased in value since you purchased it, you can
avoid the capital gains taxes that will be due on the
asset when it's sold.
Clearly, your charitable giving cam provide you with
some significant tax benefits. But if you're interested in
going even deeper into the world of charitable gifts,
you'll find that they can play a role in some of your long-
term financial strategies, as well.
Consider, for instance, how you might use a charitable
remainder trust. You'd start by donating an asset -
such as appreciated stocks, bond's or real estate - to
the trust, which is managed by a trustee. The trustee, in
turn, could sell the asset (relieving you of immediate
capital gains liabilities), reinvest the proceeds and then
make regular payments to you or another beneficiary
you named when you established the trust. ,So you
could set up the trust to provide yourself, or one or
more family members, with an income stream for life or
for a designated number of years. After the lifetime of
the last surviving beneficiary, or at the end of the spec-
ified term, the trust would end, and any remaining
assets would then be distributed to the charity you'd
named..
Setting up a charitable remainder trust is not as easy as
filling out a few forms; to do it correctly, you'll need to
work with your legal and tax advisors. And once you
establish such a trust, you'll find it can have consider-
able impact on some of the decisions affecting your
retirement income. For example, if you could count on
an income stream from a charitable remainder trust,
you might be able to withdraw less money each year
from your investments and retirement accounts, such
as your 401(k) and IRA, to meet your income needs in
retirement. In fact, if you were to receive this trust-gen-
erated income, it might even affect the type of invest-
ments you need to make before retirement, possibly
changing the balance somewhat between "growth" and
"income."
In any case, consider being as generous as you can
afford in your support of worthwhile charitable organi-
zations. But if you incorporate your charitable giving
into your long-term investment picture, you'll need to
make the right moves - so prepare carefully.

Roy Hibbs
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Free and Accepted Masons of the
State of Florida have a rich tradition in
community service, including those who
go on to join the Shrine and other ancil-
lary Masonic organizations providing es-
sential services throughout the state. In
the course of these efforts, leadership will
emerge, setting the standard for giving
and commitment. One such example of
this leadership is Right Worshipful Roy
Hibbs, currently the Senior Warden of
Madison Lodge No. ,11 F. & A.M.
In 2006, Right Worshipful Hibbs was
selected as the District Deputy Grand
Master for the 8th Masonic District that
includes Madison. At that time, Most Wor-
shipful Robert Trump was elected Grand
Master of the Grand Lodge of Florida.
As part of his responsibilities, the
Grand Master toured the state to attend 28
district banquets held in his honor. Al-
though there are 35 Masonic Districts in
Florida, some districts, like the 8th and 9th,
hold a combined banquet, resulting in a to-
tal of 28 of these gatherings over the year.
To support the Grand Master, many
District Deputy Grand Masters will at-

tend the other districts events as well. Howev-
er, with few exceptions, most do not attend all
28. Right Worshipful Hibbs was one of these
rare exceptions, attending all banquets in
support of his Grand Master.
To express his appreciation, Most Wor-
shipful Trump visited Madison on Nov. 24 and
after enjoying a delicious dinner, which was
also provided by Right Worshipful Hibbs and
his lovely wife Alli, the 2006 Grand Master
surprised his District Deputy Grand Master
with a very high Masonic Honor. Right Wor-
shipful Hibbs was bestowed the honor of be-
ing named Grand Representative.
Grand Representative is an office that can
only be held by one brother in the state and
may be held for many years, so the honor is
bestowed infrequently. The Grand Represen-
tative symbolically serves as -ambassador to
the Grand Lodge of another country. In Right
Worshipful Hibbs' case, that foreign power is
Slovenia. The country, while specific, is not
so important as the honor itself, which Right
Worshipful Hibbs accepted graciously. His
emotion was evident as he thanked Most Wor-
shipful Trump, while the lodge applauded
loudly for their friend and good brother.

Weddings have a long history, which, over the years, have
spawned a long list of traditions.
We have the wedding party, bachelor party, ring, bouquet, best
man, bridesmaids and, oh yes. the honeymoon. There are probably
more traditions involved with planning a wedding than any other
event we will attend in our lives. Some are very touching, and yet, oth-
ers seem extremely silly
Tying shoes to the bumper of a car? Where did that come from? Well as a
matter of fact, at one time, the bride's shoes were seen as a sign of authority
and possession.
After the wedding, the father of the bride would take her shoes and hand
them over to her new husband. The husband would then tap her on the head to
show her that he was now the boss. Most ladies could probably explain why this
practice never caught on. Instead, the tradition changed to tying shoes (his and
hers) to the bumper of the car.
Relatedly, the honking of the horn came about because people believed the
ringing of bells and exploding of firecrackers kept the evil spirits away from the
open carriages the brides would travel ih.
For the gentlemen, there is the bachelor party, which was started in the 15th
century among military men. The comrades of the groom would get together and
provide him with a sendoff in the form of a feast with lots of toasting. Of course,
as with most traditions, the bachelor party has also changed to become, shall we say,
more entertaining.
In the beginning, weddings were actually pretty simple events. The only requirement
for a wedding was for the bride and groom to "consent" to taking each other as spouse.
Throughout the years, other things were added to liven things up a bit, not to mention
make some local merchants wealthy in the process.
So what started out very simple now includes special garments, invitations, cakes,
gifts, rings, veils, bouquets, and much, much more.
Well you better get started. There's a lot to do. You have plans to make, designs to se-
lect, money to spend and spend and spend.

Christmas Confessions


Holiday Traditions' Origins Explained


The Christmas Tree
The Christmas Tree originated
in Germany in the 16th century It
was common for the Germanic peo-
ple to decorate fir trees, both inside
and out, with roses, apples and col-
ored paper.
It is believed that Martin Luther,
the Protestant reformer, was the
first to light a Christmas tree with
candles. While coming home one
dark, winter's night near Christ-
mas, he was struck with the beauty
of the starlight shining through the
branches of a small fir tree outside
his home. He duplicated the
starlight by using candles attached
to the branches of his indoor Christ-
mas tree.


The Christmas tree was not wide-
ly used in Britain until the 19th cen-
tury It was brought to America by the
Pennsylvania Germans in the 1820's.
Santa Claus
The original Santa Claus, St.
Nicholas, was born-in Turkey in the
4th century He was very pious from
an early age, devoting his life to
Christianity He became widely
known for his generosity toward the
poor.
But the Romans held him in con-
tempt. He was imprisoned and tor-
tured. But when Constantine be-
came emperor of Rome, he allowed
Nicholas to go free.
Nicholas is especially noted for
his love of children and for his gen-


erosity. He is the patron saint of
sailors, Sicily, Greece, and Russia.
He is also, of course, the patron saint
of 'children.
The Dutch kept-the legend of St.
Nicholas alive. In 16th century Hol-
land, Dutch children would place
their wooden shoes by the hearth in
hopes that they would be filled with
a treat. The Dutch spelled St.
Nicholas as Sint Nikolaas, which be-
came corrupted to Sinterklaas, and
finally, in Anglican, to Santa Claus.
The famous poem, 'A Visit from
St. Nicholas," which was later pub-
lished as "The Night Before Christ-
mas," is credited with creating the
modern image of Santa Claus as a
jolly fat man in a red suit.

The Truth Aflbout Mistletoe


Mistletoe and Christ-
mas. What other holiday
tradition brings such a
smile to the faces of men
and women of all ages?
It wasn't always this
way.
For at least 3,000 years,
mistletoe was gathered in
midsummer and was
burned as part of a Celtic
ritual.'
Mistletoe was consid-
ered sacred by virtue of its
occurrence on oak trees (a
rare occurrence in Eu-
rope), a sacred tree and a
symbol of strength and
immortality.
The plant was ceremo-
niously cut with a golden
sickle by Celtic priests and'
caught on a white cloth so
as to avoid touching the
ground. This ceremony co-
incided with the winter.
solstice and thus began
the winter celebration.
Mistletoe was also
used to welcome the new
year and to ward off evil.
Mistletoe was hung over a
baby's cradle to prevent
theft from fairies, and it
was believed that mistle-
toe promoted dreams that
unlocked the secrets of
immortality
A common medieval
belief held that mistletoe
was the wood used to make
the crucifix. Cursed,
mistletoe was no longer
welcome on earth and was
doomed to live as a para-
site growing on trees.
It was not until the
17th century that people


became more open about
their fondness for mistle-
toe. Kissing under the
mistletoe came about be-
cause of the belief' that
mistletoe's curative pow-
ers would cure a broken
heart and soothe the dif-
ferences between quarrel-
ing lovers.
Mistletoe is primarily
a tropical plant, some
growing up to 30 feet tall.
The mistletoe of Christ-
mas tradition grows in Eu-
rope and Asia, and a dwarf
mistletoe, one of the
world's smallest vascular
,plants, can be found in
some conifers of Western
North Amrica. In Ten-
nessee, only one mistletoe
species is common,
Phoradendron leucarpum.
Mistletoe is a thief. Its
scientific name, Phoraden-
dron means "thief of the
tree" in Greek. To under-
stand why, look at the life
of American mistletoe.
Mistletoe is semipara-
sitic; that is, while it has
green leaves that provide
some energy, it meets
many of its energy needs
by sucking the life blood
from its host, usually oaks,
elms and poplars.
The roots of the
mistletoe never reach the
ground. Roots enter the
host tree, robbing it of
necessary water and min-
erals. Actually, mistletoe
has developed a very spe-
cialized tissue with the
shape of a bell (called a
haustorium). This bell-


shaped structure grows
into the host tree and com-
bines with the living tree.
Mistletoe survives by
starving the host .tree,
sometimes to death. For
this reason, mistletoe is
sometimes known as "the
vampire plant."
, In addition to a host
tree, mistletoe needs a way
to pollinate its flowers and
a way to spread its seeds to
the branches of trees.
While insects pollinate
mistletoe, spreading of the
seeds is a most interesting
process.
In North America,
birds avoid the immature
fruits which are bitter,
hard and contain poiso-
nous compounds. Instead,
they eat and disperse the
mature fruits which are
still hard to digest. The re-
sulting unharmed seeds
take root in the new host
tree.
Dwarf mistletoe may
have the most interesting
means of seed dispersal of
all. The fruit seems to be
explosive; the sticky seed,
shaped like a small mis-


sile, may travel up to 60
feet at speeds of up to 80
feet per second before
sticking to a new host!
After the seed lodges in
the new host tree branch.
it. grows into a yellowish-
green plant up to three feet
long. Its dense leathery
oval- to lance-shaped oppo-
site leaves (about two inch-
es long) mask the small
pale flowers that appear in
compact spikes (male and
female flowers are found
on different plants). The
plants grow slowly and
generally survive as long
as the host does.
Every year, mistletoe
is collected and used as a
Christmas ornament, and
every year, children and
family pets become ill
from the poisonous
berries. We don't use
mistletoe to ward,off baby
thieves or to promote
dreams of immortality
anymore. For some reason
though, kissing under the,
mistletoe has survived
through the ages; it proba-
bly will for a long, long
time, too.

Is Great Gobbles Of Fun

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Thanksgiving came a few days early to Lee Ele-
mentary School, as hundreds of students, parents
and friends gathered to gobble up a delicious plate
of holiday dinner on November 20. Students deco-
rated tables with Thanksgiving themes that each
crafted just for the occasion, including outside ta-
bles complete with turkeys, woven placemats and
fall leaves of every color.
Each year, the LES cafeteria is packed with
these Thanksgiving well-wishers. In fact, the line
was literally out the door and down the sidewalk
with' diners waiting to enjoy the scrumptious din-
ner complete with a serving of ole' Tom and all-the
classic fixings.
Principal Jack McClellan warmly welcomed
students and guests as they entered the cafeteria,
while lunch staff and faculty kicked stepped up to
serve the packed house. In the end, all were well
fed, with each guest taking time to hug his or her
child, as well as a neighbor or two.
Debra Salls' third graders graciously hosted
this reporter to the finest table setting, as Jo Ann
Kuhl and other organizers made sure that all were
comfortably accommodated.
The faculty and staff of LES wished the com-
munity "Happy Thanksgiving!" reminding all to be
safe and blessed throughout the holiday season.

Laurie Smith: What is your fa-
vorite part about the Criminal Jus-
tice program?
Alexis Peterson: In the Criminal
Justice Program I have especially
enjoyed learning the different ele-
ments of. the constitution.
Ashley Malone: The program
gives you an inside look at what it
takes to be a police officer, correc-
tional officer, or to be in the. court
system.
LS: Has this class helped you in
preparing for the future?
AP: Through this class, JI have
found what I would like to do, and I
have learned about what it takes to
do this job.
AM: Although I don't want to be-
come anything in this field, the pro-
gram has taught me about the law
and court procedures:
LS: What are you planning to be
your future occupations?
AP: I would like to be an attor-
ney
AM: I am planning to major in
business management.
LS: What kind of material have
you covered in the program that you
found interesting or helpful?
AP: Definitely court cases. I have,
become more aware of the steps of
the court system, and the positions
you can hold.
. AM: I agree with Alexis; the
mock court cases have been ex-
tremely informative, as well as in-
sightful.
Though there are currently no
articulation agreements for this pro-
gram, they are being discussed and
negotiated with North Florida Com-
munity College.
Through the class, students
learn information valuable to every-
one. Most importantly, this program
offers a head start for any student
who someday hopes to become a cor-
rectional officer, police officer or
law student.


Key Club Sponsors UNICEF Fundraiser


By Michael Curtis.
Greene Publishing, Inc. .
With the approval of school adminis-
tration, the Madison County Highl School
Key Club began a school-side campaign
to create awareness and collect donations
for the United Nations International
Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF).
Beginning Monday, Oct. 20, and run-
ning through Friday, Oct. 31, the "Coins


For Kids" campaign was launched be-
tween first period classrooms at the high
school. A Key Clubber visited each class
daily to collect donations. In the end., over
$400 was collected, which well exceeded
expectation. In fact, it was the largest
amount the Key Club has ever raised.
The Key Club was both grateful and
proud to receive such incredible support
for such a worthwhile cause, extending

thanks to the entire school for their ef-
fort. ,
The Club also sold "Boo Grams,"
which were small bags of candy that sold
for $1: each to students throughout the
week of Halloween. The candy was do-
nated by local businesses and delivered
during lunch, totaling over $150 by the
time the program concluded.
Key Club is a service leadership orga-
nization for high school students, operat-
ing under school sponsorship and draw-
ing its membership from the student
body Jointly sponsored by the Kiwanis
Club organization, which is the where
Key Club originated, the MCHS Key Club
falls under the Madison Kiwanis Club,
which is comprised of leading Madison
County business and governmental pro-
fessionals that meet weekly for lunch at
the Extension Office.
Key Club objectives include the de-
velopment of initiative, leadership abili-
ty, and, good citizenship practices. It ex-
ists as a student-led organization on the
club level, the district level and at the in-
ternational level. This structure pro-
vides extensive service and leadership
development programs, as well as the op-
portunity for teenagers to relate to their
peers around the world.
Madison High School Key Club Presi-
dent JaRod Anderson was extremely
grateful for all donations and proud of
the efforts of Key Club members in both
fundraisers.
"For this to be our first
project for the year, we had
great results. This was the
largest amount ever col-
lected by our Key Club. I'm


so proud of my school and the community
who helped make this campaign a success.
I'm also grateful to my fellow Key Club-
bers who worked very diligently through-
out the last two weeks. This is just the
start of an exciting year for Key Club.
Also, it's not to late to join the club. Dues
are only $15, and membership is open too
all students at the high school."

Following the 21-7 loss
to- Bolles Friday night, a
Cowboy father, Troy Pick-
les, referring to a com-
ment he heard after the
game, summed it up best:
"The Cowboys didn't lose
tonight to Bolles. The Cow-
boys lost last week to Pen-
sacola Catholic.".
This passionate com-
ment referred to the in-
juries Madison County
sustained during Round 2
of the State 2A Football
semi-finals held a week
prior, including a season-
ending knee injury to
Corey Akins and an ankle
injury bad enough to side-
line Chris Thompson for
most of Friday night. The
finale to this injury-
plagued playoff came with
the gut-wrenching image
of defensive standout Josh
Arnold being rolled away
by stretcher just as Bolles
began their fourth quarter
run to victory.


In spite of the injuries,
the 2007 2A Champion
Cowboys took the field
ready for a hard battle,
which is exactly what they
got. Both teams remained
focused on the ground
game, with MarterRius
McDaniel, who was later
named Offensive Player of
the Week, and Jordan
Johnson, carrying the ball
in place of the injured
aristocracy that led the
Cowboys to an undefeated
season coming into the
game. In the end though,
the gap was simply to too
wide to bridge.
" .The Cowboys and the
Bulldogs exchanged late
interceptions, which
Bolles converted into a
long rushing touchdown
that put things out of
reach. True to form all
season though, dedicated
boosters, fans and family
began shouting "Cowboys,
Cowboys!" as the clock
ticked down, giving. the
maroon and silver a much-

After the Cowboys


walked the la.st procession

Leadership .of the Madison County Memorial
Hospital showed their Cowboy pride Friday after-
noon. when they sponsored and served dinner to
players and coaches prior to the semi-final playoff
game against Bolles held on Dec. 6 at Boot Hill.
The hospital has sponsored a variety of com-
munity gatherings recently, including Veterans
Day, the Great American Smokeout, and an impres-
sive gathering at Four Freedoms Park to honor Dr.
Johnson Bibb.
The meal consisted of a delicious Salisbury
steak. mashed potatoes and green beans, which all
enjoyed. The high school cafeteria was very quiet,
however, as the Cowboys went through the game-
day routine that led to an undefeated regular sea-
son.
The meal and support of the Cowboy communi-
ty wasn't enough to overcome the vast number of
injuries Madison County sustained over the play-
offs, although the boys from Boot Hill demonstrated
why they were the Florida 2A State Champions and
will likely be again.

Dear Madison County,

I would first like to thank all those involved in the success of the Madison
County High School Football team. There are several I would like to mention and
please forgive me if I inadvertently leave anyone out. A special thank you goes
. out to the coaches and their families for the time and effort they contribute to
the team. Your dedication, hard work and perseverance are greatly appreciated
and there are hardly words that can describe what each of you has meant to this
team. Allow me not to forget those that are behind the scenes and are a very
important part of our success. Those people are the statisticians, chain crew,
video crews, radio commentators and the Voice of the Cowboys. I would also like
thank Mrs. Lou Miller, Superintendent of Schools, Members of the Madison
County School Board, Madison County High School Administration, and fellow
faculty and staff for their continued support of our program. Finally, I thank you,
the loyal Cowboy fans, businesses, churches, and clubs in the community who
graciously contribute their time and resources in support of the team.
On a different note, allow me to remind everyone that comments directed
to specifically offend any coach or player will not be permitted nor will it be
tolerated. This type of action will result in being banned from attending any
athletic sporting events. If a serious issue regarding the safety and/or
successfulness of the team needs to be discussed, please contact me and a
meeting time can be arranged.
Thank you again for all your support and thank you in advance for your
cooperation.

Greene Publishing, Inc.
Naturally, people are drawn to those who are happy
The saying may go that misery loves company but nev-
er does that company stay long. It is a smiling face that
wins the most hearts and, as it may turn out, the most
heart health.
Of course, it is immediately obvious how more at-
tractive a smile is than a.frown. What may not be as ap-
parent are the effects that a smile has on the inside. An.

Question: My teenage daughter has the whitest
teeth and she used those strips to bleach. Will they
work for me?

Answer: I tell everyone that asks to try the "'over the
counter" whitening if you want to. You probably
already know there are many choices in "over the
counfiter": whitening products. It seems like every
toothpaste and mouthwash have whitening formulas.
The stores are full of paint on bleaches, one size fits
all trays, and even light boutiques in some stores.
What you may not know is the easiest patients to
bleach are 14 year old girls who just got their braces
off. For teenage girls, with very straight teeth, the
strips are ideal. For the rest of us we may need
something that is a bit more effective. What you may
not know is the secret to successful bleaching is time.
Research tells us the most noticeable and dazzling
results come from keeping the bleach on the teeth for
a few hours each day until the total bleaching time is
120 hours.. ,This is where dentist fabricated trays do a
far. superior, job to "over the, counter" products...

appi e a day may keep the doctor away, but a smile can go
even farther. Everyone has witnessed how contagious a
smile can be, spreading through a crowded room at the
speedci of pearly white. As the mood of the room lightens
and Ib rightens, so does that of those around. The most
important effect, however, is the health a smile brings to
the he art.


sion. This chemical cocktail hits the bloodstream with
such a force that it is nearly impossible to remain down-
trodden and weepy The body sends the message that all
is well, improving the immune system and allowing the
brain to relax.
In addition to that, smiling people appear more con-
fident, promoting more positive social contact by mak-
ing them more approachable. A simple test for this is to
wear a smile at appointments and meetings, while not-
ing how much more contact is made as a result. The
muscles used for smiling lift the face, making one ap-
pear younger and more attractive. A surgery, free
facelift, smiling through the day will not only make a
person look younger, but feel better as well.
So, next time the blues start to creep in, try thinking
of something that brings a smile. "Life is good!" the
smile tells the brain and where the mind goes, the body
will follow. Smiling may just be a direct route to a
younger, healthy heart and a quick way to pick up pals
that can help keep more smiles coming along the way

Hanukkah (Hebrew: njian, alt. Chanukah), also known as
the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemo-
rating the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem at the
time of the Maccabean Revolt of the 2nd century BC. Hanukkah
is observed for eight nights, starting on the 25th day of Kislev ac-
cording to the Hebrew calendar, and may occur from late No-
vember to late December on the Gregorian calendar.
The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of a
special candelabrum, the Menorah or Hanukiah, one light on
each night of the holiday, progressing to eight on the final night.
An extra light called a shamash (Hebrew: "guard" or "servant"), is
also lit each night, and is given a distinct location, usually high-
er or lower than the others. The purpose of the extra light is to
adhere to the prohibition, specified in the Talmud (Tracate Shab-
bat 21b-23a), against using the Hanukkah lights for anything
other than publicizing and meditating on the Hanukkah story.
(The shamash is used to light the other lights.)
