For months now, funding for weath-
erization repairs and replacements has
been available in Madison County, but
surprisingly few have participated in
this public program. The idea is simple,
In the long run, weatherization up-
grades in homes can save big money for
the homeowner and the community, not
to mention the economy, as energy costs
are challenge across America.
Some who initially called to receive
information were mistakenly under the
impression that major repairs were eli-
gible, which isn't true. But according to
the representative from the Suwanee
River Economic Council, many valu-
able services and products are available
to qualified homeowners.
According to the council, "Funding
is available for Home Repairs in Madi-
son County Families must meet income
eligibility requirements for services.
Examples of weatherizing repairs that
could be available are installation of
doors, windows, insulation, hot water

heaters and window air conditioners.
For more information, please call the lo-
cal Suwannee River Economic Council,
Inc. office at (850) 973-6709."
Additional information provided
regarding income eligibility stated, "In-
come limits are based on the number of
residents in the house. For example a
family of one can earn $21,660. Two can
earn $29,140, three can earn $36,620, and
a family of four can earn $44,100. In-
come limits increase with each addi-
tional resident. The numbers are based
on 200 percent of the poverty income
Of course, offcials remind resi-
dents that the program is strictly limit-
ed to wveatherization, as again, some
residents were looking for repairs not
covered by the program. For those who
are covered, following the proper sub-
mission of a simple application and sup-
porting documentation, the council
looks forward to providing this valuable

With the passage of the Obamacare bill, begin-
ning in 2014 most Americans will be required to buy
health insurance, or be forced to pay a government
penalty. Small businesses and large businesses will
be required to insure their workers. Taxes will go
up. More and more Americans and businesses will
no longer be able to afford life, as we know it.
According to an Associated Press poll, young
adults will see a 17 percent increase, on the average,
on their premiums, on the individual market.
"Jim O'Connor, an actuary with the indepen-
dent consulting firm Milliman Inc., came up with
similar estimates of 10 to 30 percent increases for
young males, averaging about 15 percent. 'Young
males will be hit the hardest," O'Connor says, be-
cause they have lower health care costs than young
females and older people who go to doctors more of-
ten and use more medical services."' Associated
John Deere expects their after-taxes expenses to
rise by $150 million this year, due to America's new
healthcare reform law.
According to the Wall Street Journal, "Caterpil-
lar Inc. said Wednesday it will take a $100 million

There is a certain stillness on
the Withlacoochee River this

decorated; a cobblestone patio
created by my husband, land-

and hollowed out cypress stumps

forever embedded.

natural disasters as this.

"Very learned women are to be found, in the
same manner as female warriors; but they are sel-
dom or never inventors." -- Voltaire
What do windshield wipers, COBOL and Scotch-
gard have in common?
All were invented by women.
We continue our series of articles on women
who helped shape American culture. In addition,
here are a few other well-known products that were
created by female inventors:
*Bulletproof vests
*Fire Escapes
*Laser Printers
*Flat-bottom grocery bags
*Certain drugs that fight diseases such as child-
hood leukemia, herpes, gout, and a drug called AZT,
which was the first drug to fight AIDS.
By the way, how many of the inventors of the
above products can you name?
Windshield Wipers:
Some inventions are created as the result of a
person simply trying to solve a problem. That's what
Mary Anderson of Alabama did in 1903 when she in-
vented windshield wipers. On a trip to New York
City, while touring the city on a streetcar, she no-
ticed that the motorman had to continually get out
to wipe the snow and ice from the windshield. The
man had tried a variety of solutions to this problem
but nothing had worked.
After making a quick drawing in her sketch-
bH ksoMur onm wuhp with da sluion teodthe polm
allowed the motor man to sweep the snow and ice
away with a device that was operated from inside
the car. This became the forerunner to the modern
windshield wiper. Even though wipers had become
standard equipment on American cars by 1913
Mary never profited from them. '
The U.S.S. Hopper:
Grace Murray Hopper developed COBOL
(which stands for COmmon Business Oriented Lan-
guage) mn 1959 while she was mn the Navy, and she
was also the Navy's first female admiral. COBOL
was more like natural English than any previous
computer language. It was the first programming
language mandated by the Department of Defense
for its applications and, in recognition of her con-
tributions, the Navy named one of their destroyers
in her honor, the U.S.S. Hopper.
COBOL served as a foundation for later comput-
er languages and it's likely that we wouldn't have
the World Wide Web today if it weren't for COBOL.
Another contribution that Grace Hopper made was
the term "computer bug." No, she didn't invent it,
but she is the one who coined the term. She did this
when a computer processor had stopped working
due to a moth that was stuck in it.
Some new products are the result of an acci-
dent. Penicillin, Post-It Notes, Silly Putty and Ivory
Soap are all examples of accidental discoveries. You
can put Scotchgard in this category, too.
Patsy Sherman created Scotchgard in 1952 while
working as a chemist for 3M in Minneapolis. Sher-
man's team had been trying to develop a new kind of
rubber for use in aircraft fuel lmnes when an assis-
tant in her chemistry lab accidentally dropped a
beaker full of a liquid rubber mixture onto the floor,
splashing onto Sherman's white canvas sneakers.
When they tried to wash it off, the water and sol-
vents beaded up and ran off the sneakers. Sherman
and fellow chemist Sam Smith realized that the mix-
ture could be used to protect fabrics from water and
other fluids. After three years of work, the mixture
was patented and released as Scotchgard Protector
In a5 197 speech to students, Sherman explained
that being an inventor does not require a lot of mon-
ey or education, nor is it a matter of age or gender.
She once remarked, "How many great discoveries
would never have occurred were it not for acci-

So, are women and men equal as inventors?
The answer to that question is as tough to figure
out as removing red wine from a couch unless it
was protected by Patsy Sherman's invention of

We need to have a
serious discussion
about debt and differ-
entiate between the
positive aspects of bor-
rowing and its crush-
ing weight. Our
nation is facing a
looming crisis our
public debt is growing
to huge proportions
and the yearly deficit
spending, where our
government spends
more than it takes in,
is out of control and
adding horribly to the
Don't think of all
debt as bad, just unsus-
tainable debt. Most of
us are familiar with
taking out mortgages
or loans to purchase a
home or automobile.
These are impor-
tant purchases (we all
need a place to live and
transportation) so
someone with good
credit and sufficient
income to service
(principle plus inter-
est) the debt welcomes
the opportunity.
Banks are in business
to make these types of
Banks also make
commercial loans to
businesses that need
additional cash for
things like expansion,
new equipment, inven-
tory, a new facility, etc.
When the bank
looks over the business
plan and decides that
there is good probabili-
ty that the company
will repay the loan
with the cash flow
from new business,
they'll make the deal.
These are exam-
ples where debt serves
a useful purpose and is
justified. But there is
also bad debt where in-
come cannot service
the loan and default is
on the horizon. This
type of debt might be
thought of as econom-
ic slavery. The current
economic recession
was brought about by a
poor understanding of
debt and risk, both by
lenders and borrowers.
Fueled by "irra-
tional exuberance" in
the real estate market,
lenders offered sub
prime loans to unqual-
ified buyers who could-
n't hope to pay the
mortgage once teaser
interest rates reset -
their only hope was to
flip the property and
make a quick profit.
Credit card companies
began to push their
product on consumers
who felt artificially
wealthy thanks to
rapidly escalating real
estate values. Just to

Richard Bacaston other

underscore the crazy
times, home owners
began to take out home
equity second loans to
fuel consumer spend-
This financial
house of cards began
to fold when the mar-
ket adjusted to in-
comes which could not
support real estate val-
ues. Depreciating real
estate created tens of
thousands of situa-
tions where mortgages
went "under water" -
that occurs when the
balance on the mort-
gage exceeded the val-
ue of the real estate.
As more and more
banks discovered that
their mortgage portfo-
lios were undervalued,
the credit system be-
gan to dry up and eco-
nomic activity
foundered. Through-
out late 2008 and 2009,
we saw the unemploy-
ment rate inch higher
and higher Florida's
unemployment rate
(driven by construc-
tion layoffs and weak
tourism) now stands at
12.2 percent, 2.5 points
higher than the nation-
al average.
We are firmly en-
trenched in an eco-
nomic hangover,
People who are unem-
ployed cannot afford a
mortgage payment or
any other debt, for that
matter. Experts tell us
that commercial real
estate will soon react
the same way as resi-
dential when shorter
term mortgages come
up for renewal in 2011-
12. Consumers are des-
perately trying to pay
off credit card bal-
ances and reducing
discretionary spend-
ing tourism is an ex-
ample of this type of
spending that a few
years ago was routine-
ly charged, but not to-
"We the people"
understand what is
happening and are re-
acting accordingly,
however painful. The
same cannot be said for
the politicians who are
spending money we
don't have for things
like stimulus, bailouts
and now health care.
Already, the national
debt level is at $12.7 tril-
lion. The Congression-

al Budget Office (CBO)
recently examined the
Obama Administration
budget projections and
says we are on course
to add another $10 tril-
lion in debt by the year
2020, in large part be-
cause of runaway enti-
tlements Social
Security, Medicare, and
now national health
care. In 2008 (when
George Bush was still
president), our debt ley-
el stood at 30 percent
gross domestic product
(GDP). By 2020, the
CBO estimates the pub-
lic debt level will be 90
percent of our GDP
Do you see what is
happening in Greece to-
day (and before long,
Spain, Portugal and Ire-
land)? We're headed
down the same road.
There was a recent
report that the public
debt level is so high
that the United States
might be in imminent
danger of losing its
AAA bond rating. That
condition has probably
never occurred in our
history, at least since
Treasury secretary
Alexander Hamilton
wrote the first set of
banking regulations
and established our na-
tional system of credit
in 1791.
Already we are see-
ing signs that bond
traders are avoiding US
Treasuries. Two bond
sales last week were
largely avoided by in-
vestors, a reaction to
the health care bill
signed by President
Obama. The reason -
investors believe that
the impact of this legis-
lation will prove far
more costly than the
politicians have led us
to believe so they feel
the Treasuries are a
bad risk.
On a national level,
Obama is making a
similar mistake that
bankers and other
lenders made five years
ago, pushing his agen-
da with reckless aban-
don. The buyers are
liberal Democrats who
are ramming their tax
and spend policieS
through Congress with
no regard as to how the
debt is to be paid.
When the day of reck-
oning occurs, it will be
very painful.

you feed the bacteria with bunch of sugar, you will have very
high dental disease.

Now for the good news. You can remove plaque yourself.
Get a new toothbrush and brush your teeth. Forget the
toothpaste for awhile and leam how to brush your teeth. It is
the brush that cleans the teeth and not the paste. After you
finish brushing, check your teeth with your tongue to see if
any plaque is left You will be amazed how much you can
feel if you don't have paste & bubbles in your mouth. But
you say that the brush doesn't get into those nooks and
crannies verywell. Verytrueandthat is where that stuf called
floss is supposed to beused. Over 40% of the surface of the
teeth is inaccessible to toothbrush, so get to work with your

Nowthe rest of the story. Try as youmay notmany patients
are all thatperfect atremoving the plaque. Plaque thatremains
behind undisturbed by a brush or floss for 100 days will
actually plaster orharden onto the teeth. Hardened plaque is
whatwetermtartarorcalculus. Thatisnotsomethingyoucan
remove by your self. We recommend that you see your
hygienist every 6 months to remove those bits of tartar that
have been missed

"The grant is intended to provide students,
schools, and communities the benefit of en-
hanced comprehensive educational, mental
health, social services, law enforcement, and as
appropriate, juvenile justice system services
that can promote healthy children development
and prevent violence and alcohol and other drug
abuse," James noted.
Titled, "Project Safe Zone," the following are
programs, services and curriculum being imple-
mented through the four-year program:
0weus Bullying Prevention curriculum:
Project Safe Zone will expand the 01weus Bully-
ing Prevention to Madison County High School,
Lee Elementary, Pinetta Elementary and Madi-
son County Excel School.
*After-school programs: Project Safe Zone
has partnered with the Boys and Girls Club to
provide transportation for students who are en-
rolled in the after-school program.
*Mental health services: Project Safe Zone
will contract with local mental health providers
to provide assessments and school-based early
intervention and intensive strategies for at-risk
students in grades K-12 and their families with
or with out insurance. Case management to en-
sure that the families are receiving the services
and provide communication between the fami-
lies, school and mental health providers.
*Case Management Services: Project Safe
Zone will provide case management services to
students re-entering schools from a juvenile fa-
cility or attending the alternative school.
*Improved campus safety: Our initiative
plans on improving campus safety by installing
more cameras on the Madison County Central
School campus, increase communication by pur-
chasing more radios, installing guest registra-
tion systems at all the schools, and improve
surveillance technology on the school buses.
*Mentoring Program: Our initiative is ac-
tivelto rcuriting communityh= mebr obc

through the SIT process. This is a great opportu-
nity for community members and students to get
involved and make an impact on some child's
*Volunteer Pre-Kindergarten Services: Pro-
ject Safe Zone was able to extend VPK services to
children by hiring 2 half-time CDAs paraprofes-
sionals to expand Pre-K to a full day.
*Computer Lab Services: Project Safe Zone
hired two computer lab paraprofessionals to pro-
vide computer assistance to students identified
by the SIT process before, during and after
school hours.
*Prevention Services: Project Safe Zone has
partnered with Department of Health and the
Madison Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Coali-
tion to provide specialized services that will
communicate the ATOD policies to students, par-
ents, staff and teachers, and community mem-
bers during school assemblies, training and
monthly evening workshops.

Project Safe Zone will provide a positive im-
pact at all schools. And here are a list of pro-
grams, services, curricula, and events that will
be forthcoming:
*Positive Action curriculum: Project Safe
Zone staff will implement Positive Action cur-
riculum to all schools (Academic, Behavior, &
Character Education)
*Positive Action Parenting Workshops: Pro-
ject Safe Zone staff will conduct parent work-
shops in the community utilizing the positive
parenting kits.
0weus Bullying Prevention Workshops:
Project Safe Zone staff will conduct parent work-
shops in the community on the 01weus Bullying
Prevention curriculum.
*Abstinence Education: Project Safe Zone is
in the process of contracting with the Depart-
ment of Health to provide middle school stu-
dents, with an Abstinence Education curriculum
entitled W.A.I.T. (Why Am I Tempted?), during
their activity period of the school day.
*Early Childhood Education: Project Safe
Zone has contracted with the Department of
Health to hire a Parent Liaison to provide home
visits and parent management training to moth-
ers of children ages 0-2. During the home visits
the Parent Liaison will implement parent-train-
ing programs using the Parents as Teachers-
Born to Learn curriculum with the parents.
School officials gratefully request parents
and residents draw special attention to two of
the programs currently being emphasized, the
VPK or Pre-K program, and the mentoring pro-
gram. As far as Pre-K, parents are being urged to
get children into the program, as one of the chal-
lenges facing the school system is from children
arriving in first grade behind, regarding reading
in particular. As far as mentoring, many stu-
dents have difficulty in school due to behavioral
issues that are notably improved simply from
having an adult that cares encouraging them to
succeed. For more information, please call the
school district at (850) 973-5022.

focused to maintain the
progress," Madison County Cen-
tral School Principal Sam Stal-
naker explained.
The Central School was a
poster child for commitment this
year, as students, staff and vol-
unteers came together for the
cause. The Saturday School pro-
gram that was launched to sup-
port FCAT preparation, for
instance, served over 500 stu-
dents in three weekend sessions,
with each session lasting three
hours. Impressively, those 1500
study hours not only converted
into better testing, but also en-
couraged and trained students
for a lasting dedication to excel-
lence in education.
During recent district plan-
ning, parents and civic leadership
from throughout the community

Cent from Page 1A

emphasized educational improve-
ments as priority one for a more
prosperous future. It was further
noted that business opportunities
previously passed the county by
because the workforce was inad-
equately prepared, and because
our graduation results were lag-
ging. In response to this ongoing
issue, the superintendent and
board have formed plans and tak-
en actions from Pre-K to high
school to aggressively address
this concern, noting they will not
back off until the game is won.
And in the end, the FCAT is the
Going forward, these stan-
dards may change, however, and
become even more comprehen-
sive. In a bill that has already
passed the Florida Senate, legis-
lation would add geometry, alge-

bra II, biology, chemistry and
physics to the list of courses
needed to graduate and require
students to take at least one vir-
tual class. The requirements
would be phased in from Fall
2010 through the 2014-15 school
year, at which time the identity
of the FCAT would be eliminated
in favor of end-of-course exams.
Results from this testing pe-
riod will not be available until
the end of the school year. All
eyes are especially focused on
the Central School and the High
School, as these represent the vast
majority of the district popula-
tion. A far as Greenville, Lee and
Pinetta Elementary Schools, con-
tinued strong FCAT performances
are anticipated.

"Humans, too, need to minimize their contact outside around dusk and dawn, when mosquitoes

with mosquitoes as mosquitoes remain the largest
carrier of diseases that afflict people. Toward that
end, Bronson is recommending that Floridians:
*Remove standing water from their property by
emptying out stagnant water from kiddie pools, old
tires, birdbaths and any other receptacle that holds
*Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants when

are most active.
*Use a good mosquito repellent.
The basic rule is that of care and caution, which
considering the potential for standing water and fa-
vorable breeding conditions, an once of prevention
will be worth a pound of cure.

Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Michael Curtis, March 12, 2010
Doug Freer (left), tobacco specialist with the MCHD, and Preston Mathews
(right), tobacco cessation consultant with Big Bend AHEC, are pleased to spon-
sor a regional rodeo as part of Down Home Days, which is being organized by
Chamber Director Ted Ensminger (center) and his great staff.

In addition to all the great
events and vendors that have attract-
ed thousands to Down Home Days in
the past, this year the Greater Madi-
son County Chamber of Commerce
is pleased to announce the festive
weekend will feature two evenings of
professional rodeo.
Scheduled for April 16 and 17,
the Professional Cowboys' Associa-
tion (PCA) will be holding events
each evening, starting at 7 p.m. Ac-
tivities for children, in addition to
great concessions will be available,
as over 250 cowboys are expected to

by Tobacco Free Florida, Tobacco
Free Madison, and the Big Bend
AHEC Quit Smoking Now program.
Considering the traditional associa-
tion between rodeo and smokeless
tobacco, this regional event is break-
ing new ground. Effectively, youth
will be respectfully introduced to
the idea that rodeo is a heritage that
can be enjoyed without the devastat-
ing effects of tobacco use, which
claims more lives and more dollars
each year. Even in counties with
populations of only 20,000, like
Madison County, the expenditure for
tobacco products easily exceeds
$5,000,000, and that doesn't scratch

the surface of the medical costs as-
sociated with tobacco related illness.
Of course, tobacco users will not
be offended by the tobacco-free
event, as performers will be provid-
ed convenient locations to smoke or
chew away from children's view.
Again, the idea is not to offend
adults, rather to allow youth an op-
portunity to see their role models
perform without introducing them
to addictions that claim health and
lives by the thousands annually.
Chamber Executive Director Ted
Ensminger was excited to announce

the landmark event, and looks for-
ward to delivering a fun-filled week-
end for the whole family. Visitors are
expected to come in numbers from
surrounding counties, as the PCA
has an extensive following through-
out the region.
The theme this year for Down
Home Days is "Remember When."
Additional details and scheduling
for the event and rodeo will be pub-
lished in an upcoming edition of the
Madison County Carrier.

Time for "Spring Cleaning
of Your Investments

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones

Spring is here time to spruce up your house, get rid
of clutter and get things organized. But this year, go
beyond your home and yard when you do your spring
cleaning and look for ways to rejuvenate your invest-
ment portfolio.
Of course, you don't have to take an "out with the old,
in with the new" approach just for the sake of changing
things up. But to consistently make progress toward
your financial goals, you may need to make adjust-
ments in response to changes in the financial markets,
the economy and your personal situation. And spring-
time is as good a time as any to take a fresh look at
your investment situation. So consider these sugges-
*Dispose of things that aren't working. Whether
it's a burnt-out computer, a non-vacuuming vacuum
cleaner or a treadmill that lost its grip back when "the
Web" was reserved for spiders, we all own things that
are no longer useful. And the same may be true of
some of your investments. If one hasn't performed the
way you had hoped, and you've given it adequate time,
you may be better off by replacing it and using the pro-
ceeds to purchase another investment.
*Get rid of duplicates. If you went through every-
thing in your house, you might find several items that
do the same thing. Do you really need two toaster
ovens? And how many radios can you listen to at one
time? If you looked at your investment portfolio in this
same way, you might be surprised to find some redun-
dancies. For example, do you own several stocks
issued by similar companies that make similar prod-
ucts? This might not be a problem when the stock mar-
ket is booming, but it could be a definite concern if a
downturn affects the industry to which these compa-
nies belong. Always look for ways to diversify your
holdings. While diversification, by itself, can't guaran-
tee profits or protect against loss, it can help you
reduce the effects of volatility.
*Put things back in order. Over time, and inadver-
tently, the spaces in your home can get "out of bal-
ance." Perhaps you have too many chairs in one cor-
ner, your f lat-screen television is crowding out your
family pictures, or your new desk takes up too much
space in your home office. With some rearranging,
however, you can usually get things back in order. And
the same need for rearrangement may apply to your
portfolio, which might have become unbalanced with
too much of one investment and too little of another.
This situation could undermine your financial strategy,
especially if the imbalance means you are taking on
too much risk or, conversely, if your holdings have
become too conservative to provide the growth you
need. So look for ways to restore your portfolio to its
proper bialancaen Ione that refle ts your risk tolerance,

By giving your portfolio an annual spring cleaning, you
can help make sure it reflects your current needs and
is positioned to help you make progress toward your
key financial objectives. And you won't even have to
get near the dust cloths or furniture polish.

Superman Brings

Mis sion To


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Allen Mullins is a man with a mission, and he walks his talk like Superman, lit-
erally. Having already completed a cross-country walk to bring awareness to veter-
an's issues he feels have been caught up in politics for too long, he is now on the road
"It's just not right the way the country doesn't take care of it's veterans. This is
not a new thing either, and it must change. We have to stop talking and start doing
and put the politics behind us," he noted. "I started this walk in January, and I plan
to visit every state capital in the next four years to speak out for the brave men and
women who serve us in the military," he added.
Recently traveling through Madison on the way to
Tallahassee, Mullins was spotted by numerous resi-
dents who encouraged and helped his cause with
rides and donations. The spirit of supporting veter- ?,
an's affairs is a cornerstone of Madison County
If one searches, "Allen Mullins Superman," on
the Internet, dozens of articles can be found chroni-
cling his noteworthy effort.
One Alabama reporter wrote, "He's not
faster than a speeding bullet, he's not
more powerful than a locomotive al:0
he's not able to leap tall buildings min 4 I

Mullins is able to walk great di-
tances in the name of the real heroes t
of today the American soldiers.
"Although Mullins, 27, of Dal-
ton, Ga., has never been a soldier

Center Executive Director Rosa Richardson for her presentation and tireless
dedication to helping the seniors of Madison County.

During the March 18 lunch meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Madison, mem-
bers and guests were provided an entertaining update regarding construction of
the new Madison County Senior Center, which is targeted to open in May Execu-
tive Director Rosa Richardson was excited to provide details of the progress, as
she walked the group through architectural illustrations and descriptions of sev-
eral programs. In the end, it was evident the 10,000 sq. ft. facility would be a true
Madison County showcase.
"We are so pleased to be finishing construction, and really excited about the
p possibilities in our new home. Over time, we will b 3 able to expand services and

staff, in addition to offer-
ing space to the public for
special functions,"
Richardson explained.
"And it is not just for se-
niors. It is truly a multi-
purpose facility that
civic and church groups
could use for just about
any gathering."
The distinguished
guest added, "The out-
side of the facility is es-
sentially complete, as
well as the plumbing and
wiring. The floors and
grounds will be next, and
then the doors will
open. "
"A grand opening
and dedication will fol-
low shortly after that,"
she went on to say,
"which will likely be held
in June "'
Before she completed
the descriptive walk-
through, Richardson
took a moment to thank
many of the people in the
room who were instru-
mental in the process,
both for their profession-
al and personal support.
She also mentioned
that over $400,000 of in-
kind contributions had
been made to date, in-
cluding key county and
city contributions.
Elveta Miller, who in-
troduced and later
thanked Richardson for
her tireless dedication, a
sentiment that was
echoed by Club President
Oliver Bradley, joined fel-
low club members in
their anticipation of the
wonderful county re-
source. The new senior
center is located on the
corner of SR 14 and Har-
vey Greene Drive. The

The crowds piled up
as fast as Kim Buchanan
could pile the plates full
of Madison County's
fundraising favorite -
chicken and rice that
the Pinetta PTO was
serving up on March 26 at
the Madison County
Joined by PTO Presi-
dent Darla Carver, Princi-
pal Beth Moore and a
host of volunteers and
students, the delicious
cauldron of tender tasti-
ness went quickly, espe-
cially at only $5 per plate.

In fact, the plates went so
fast that several who had
pre-purchased tickets for
the event were unable to
be served.

Pinetta, Lee, Madi-

established a wonderful
reputation for reaching

course, it's no secret that
school budgets are tight,
which makes these

fundraisers critical to
providing additional en-
riching and recreational
"We really enjoy get-
ting out and spending
time with the community,
and we appreciate all
they do to support us. We
also appreciate the sacri-

teers, as well as all the
Pinetta parents who sac-
rifice so much for our
kids," Moore explained.
Pinetta Elementary
is no stranger to great ex-
tracurricular activities,
having recently produced
an entertaining show in
recognition of the birth-
day of Dr. Seuss. Their
annual festival is always
a big hit too, featuring the
best funnel cakes in the
region, among other fan
favorites. In the end, it's
perhaps the best and

Part of a good education is learn-
ing to become a good citizen, and part
of becoming a good citizen is learn-
ing about other good citizens who
have worked and sacrificed for the
betterment of their community. In
Madison County, few have worked
harder to build a better community
than Frances Sanders, and few have
sacrificed more than Capt. Colin P.
Kelly, Jr.
Earlier this year, Mrs. Sanders
joined several classes of elementary
students at the Four Freedoms monu-
ment in downtown Madison, where
she colorfully described the heroism
of Capt. Colin P. Kelly, Jr. and how his
ultimate sacrifice in World War II
saved lives and brought great pride to
the community.
The children listened closely to

the matriarch's eloquent descriptions,
reliving the moments as though they
were walking with her down memory
lane. They also learned how the Four
Freedoms Monument was dedicated,
and how Capt. Kelly was recognized as
the first fallen hero of the war. But
most importantly, they learned how to
become good citizens.
As a librarian and educator, Mrs.
Sanders has devoted a lifetime to orga-
nizing and delivering countless activi-
ties that showcase the county,
dedicating time and resources rarely
found, literally loving each child as
though he or she were her own. Lead-
ing by example, the role model urged
the young students to always do and
give their best, further reminding
them they are the future of Madison

Following two cancellations, one rain-out, one
loss and two huge wins in their past six games,
the Aucilla Christian Academy junior varsity
baseball team now stands 4-4 on the season.
The game slated against Madison Academy,
March 9, was canceled. Coach Daryl Adams said
although Madison Academy did have a JV team,
they had to cancel the remainder of their season
due to no longer having enough players to man
the field during a game.
In the game scheduled against Maclay, March
12, it was rained out and there will be no make-up
game scheduled.
In the game against Madison Central, March
16, the JV Warriors were inched 8-7 in the tooth-
and-nail loss.
On the mound, Nick Roberts pitched the first
three innings, giving up 3 walks, 2 hits and strik-
ing out no batters.
Russell Fraleigh was named the losing pitch-
er. He pitched three innings, giving up 4 walks, no
hits and striking out 2 batters.

Hunter Horne had 1 walk and 1 run.
Bradley Holm had 1 walk and 1 run.
Jay Dickey had 1 hit and 1 run.
Casey Demott had 1 hit and 1 run.
In the game against Maclay, March 19, the JV
Warriors turned a 7-3 victory.
On the mound, Fraleigh pitched the first four
innings, giving up 3 walks, 3 hits and striking out
2 batters.
Holm finished up on the mound, giving up 2
hits, 2 runs, 4 walks and striking out 3 batters.
At the plate, Jarrod Turner scored 2 runs.

Dickey went 1 for 3 with 1 run.
Caleb Wyche had 1 hit-by-pitch and 1 run.
Fraleigh went 1 for 3.
Demott went 1 for 3.
The game slated against Madison Central,
March 22, was canceled due to the field being too
wet and unplayable. The game will not be made
When the JV Warriors squared off against
FAMU High, March 23, the JV Warriors scalped
their opponents with a 15-0 zipping.
Fraleigh pitched the first two innings, giving
up 1 walk, no hits and striking out 5 batters.
Holm pitched one inning, giving up 1 walk, no
hits and striking out 2 batters.
Roberts finished up the pitching effort, pitch-
ing one inning, giving up 1 hit, 2 walks and strik-
ing out 3 batters.
