Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports
that on May 25, at 9:15 p.m., investigators with the
Madison County Sheriff's Office Drug Task Force
stopped a vehicle on Interstate 10 for a traffic infrac-
tion that resulted in the seizure of $275,080.00 and a
2006 Honda Civic that is now pending forfeiture pro-
ceedings.
During the traffic stop, Investigators detected
signs of possible criminal activity and deployed the
Task Force canine "Arko" to conduct a free air sniff
of the exterior of the vehicle. Canine "Arko" gave a
positive alert for the presence of narcotic odor on
the vehicle.
Investigators conducted a probable cause
search of the vehicle and the contents contained
within. Even though there had been a great effort to
conceal, Investigators were eventually able to locate
a "man-made" compartment, also known as a secret
compartment or trap constructed within the vehi-
cle. The compartment was located in the exact area
where canine "Arko" alerted. Investigators were

Wednesday, June 2, 2010


Memorial Day came and went this past Monday.
With it came many family gatherings, cook-outs,
beach trips, a day outside, or just another day at
work (depending on what your job is.)
But I do wonder how many people keep in the
back of their mind WHY we have a national holiday,
such as Memorial Day.
Memorial Day often just means a holiday to
many people; a day to get off work, play, and have
fun. So many people forget that the holiday is in
honor of our US soldiers who have died while in the
military service. "America: The Land Of The Free"
- Freedom doesn't come free; our soldiers paid/are
paying that price for us.
All of these thoughts come full circle to a col-
umn that I have wanted to write for a couple of
months, now. I had written one similar, a few years
ago, but in the past few months it has been back on
my mind.
I truly think nothing irritates me more than
showing disrespect during a prayer (showing disre-
spect to God) and showing disrespect during the
pledge of allegiance and/or the singing of the Na-
tional Anthem (disrespect to our country.)
On several occasions, lately, I have been at func-
tions where the The National Anthem ("The Star-
Spangled Banner") was sung. I seem to always take
notice of those that do not stand at attention and
salute the flag during the song. Could it be that they
were never taught to? Hard to believe; but possible.
However, as one grows into adulthood, surely they
have seen others behave properly, and should have
learned that lesson. Or, could it be that they just
don't care?
Flag Code
United States Code Title 36
9301. National anthem
Designation. The composition consisting of
the words and music known as the Star-
Spangled Banner is the national anthem.
Conduct During Playing During rendition of
the national anthem -
when the flag is displayed -
individuals in uniform should give the
military salute at the first note of the anthem
and maintain that position until the last note;
members of the Armed Forces and veterans
who are present but not in uniform may
render the military salute in the manner
provided for individuals in uniform; and
all other persons present should face the flag
and stand at attention with their right hand
over the heart, and men not in uniform, if
applicable, should remove their headdress
with their right hand and hold it at the left


bly been.
As the rodeo began, the crowd stood for prayer,
the pledge of allegiance, and then began singing the
National Anthem. (And yes, I had already noticed all
those around me that were not saluting the flag,
were swaying back and forth, and/or not singing at
all.) As we first began singing, I noticed a boy,
around the age of six, walking in front of us carry-
ing two drinks. As soon as he realized what we were
singing he immediately stopped, turned toward the
arena, tucked the drink in his right hand under his
left arm, took his cowboy hat off, and placed it over
his heart and began to sing. At the age of six he had
already been taught respect for God, country, and
man. How is it that so many other people in this
world have lost that?
So, I end this column with a big "Thank You" to
all of our veterans, and to the men and women that
are currently serving in our military. If it were not
for the wars of "yesteryear" and the soldiers that
fought in them, we would not have the freedoms that
we take for granted today. If it were not for our cur-
rent military men and women, we would not be able
continue to enjoy these same freedoms.
Until then..... I'll see you around the town.

shoulder, the hand being over the heart; and
when the flag is not displayed, all present

Madison County Carrier 3A


Wa stel

Nothing is more
vexing than to see
wasted tax dollars be-
ing poured down the
drain. It's bad
enough when over-
taxed wvage earners
are subject to com-
plaints by politicians
and bureaucrats that
the government needs
more money to meet
basic needs, but when
we see those monies
being wasted on frivo-
lous, "make work"
projects, we really get
angry.
I sawv an example
of this in Madison
last week. Now, I may
be talking through
my hat on this one,
because I certainly
don't know all of the
details. I observed
something that really
looked stupid, asked a
few questions, and re-
searched the matter
just a little through
the internet ... so
her go
Ler teme set the
stage. I'm driving
south on Highway
255.
At the Lee inter-
change, I see a work
crew of about ten, fel-
lows who are edging
weed eating, and leaf'
blowing the median
under the I-10 over-
pass. That struck me
as unusual. At first, I
thought they might
be prisoners but their
garb indicated that
wasn't the case.
There were two
pickups parked on the
median which were
obviously there to


support the crew. The
logo on, the sides of
the truck indicated
they were a landscap-
ing firm from Pen-
sacola. I recalled
seeing this crew do-
ing the same kind of
work the week before
in Mladison along US
90.
When I returned
home, I looked the
company up via the
internet and found
they have about 60
employees and regu-
larly bid on state con-
tracts worth
hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars, in
addition to high end
private work.
I checked with the
city manager and
confirmed that this
was not a local con-
tract. The contract
most likely was let by
state DOT but since
the highways I saw
being worked were
federal, this may be
stimulus money from
Washington paying
for the job.
Whichever gov-
ernment agency is
paying for this work,
it appears to me to be
a really stupid waste
of money. I question
whether or not the
job should be done in
the first place, but as-
suming it is neces-
sary, is it a good idea
to weed eat and edge
the side of a public
highway? After all,
this is time-consum-
ing, expensive work.
If it were me and
the job was necessary,
I would use a light so-
lution of herbicide in
a sprayer, killing the
grass in a narrow
area and solving the
problem for at least a
year.
For grass, I would
use a generic
Roundup containing
47 percent glyphosate
at a concentration of
about 10-12 ounces
per gallon of water.
That is a much
cheaper and more ef-
fe~ctive way to control
grass that is growing
where it shouldn't. I
believe TIri-County
says that it is about 12
times less expensive
to control a powerline


right-of-way with her-
bicide than with me-
chanical means
and it is a more effec-
tive long term solu-
tion,
But apparently,
the agency that is
paying for this type of
highway mainte-
nance isn't concerned
with the least cost so-
lution. Stewardship
isn't part of their vo-
cabulary. I guess it
just proves the old
adage, "it's a lot easi-
er to spend someone
else's money than
your own."
And since we're
always looking at en-
vironmental issues,
how much gas do you
think those ineffi-
cient 2-cycle engines
are burning? How
about the emissions?
Let me be clear
about this, I'm not
blaming the contrac-
tor or the people
working for him.
They're merely doing
a job that a govern-
ment agency at state
or federal level is
willing to pay them
for. My issue is with
government agency
that is wasting valu-
able tax dollars that
always seem to be in
short supply. For ex-
ample, wouldn't this
money be better spent
helping the state of
Louisiana clean up
its' oil-fouled coast?
I don't have a
problem using stimu-
lus money for infra-
structure projectS
like a waste water
treatment plant or
strengthening a
bridge so that it does-
n't fall into a river
and kill a lot of pe0-
ple like Minneapolis
experienced a few
years ago. There are
plenty of roads that
need to be paved,
widened, or repaired
long before they
should be edged.
If you think I'm
all wrong about thiS
matter and missing
the boat, feel free to
write Greene Publish-
ing and set me
straight. I'm out-
raged by this appar-
ent waste of money.
How about you?

large packages. Once the packages werfre opened In-

The packages were consistent of a fashion in-

currency for drug transactions.
The driver and passenger denied having any
knowledge of the fabricated compartment in the ve-
hicle or the currency concealed within the compart-

they did not own the? currency or know who the own-
er was. The vehicle and currency were seized. The

currency before being released.

feiture.

ed that he would carry out his threats.
The Sheriff's Office received additional infor-
mation that McLeod was shooting his weapons most
of the day and Deputy Joey Knight observed
McLeod walking around outside his home with a
long barreled gun. The Sheriff's Office activated the
Madison County Special Weapons and Tactics
"SWAT" team. The neighbors around 1McI~eod's res-
idence were evacuated and all attempts to have
McLeod voluntarily surrender failed.
The Madison County Sheriff's Office "SWAT"
team was able to covertly obtain an opportunity to
subdue McLeod and take him into custody wiithout
further incident.
M~cLeod continued his uncooperative~ demeanor
and threatening statements during and after his ar-
rest and was transported to the Madison County Jail
at approximately 2100 hours.
McLeod was arrested and charged with the two
counts of threats on a public official and an improp-
er display of a firearm.
Additional charges are pending.

Wednesday, June 2, 2010


By M.K. Graves
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Teenagers are notorious for their
hormones, love of movies, music,
video games, desire to chat online and
texting on their cell phones.
Suddenly, it's almost summer, and
some teens don't know how to spend
their time during the grueling, hot
months to learn something new or to
work on their job skills. Fortunately,
relief is on the way.
Positive Summer Teen Program
Local public libraries in Madison,
Lee and Greenville are offering a free
summer program called Make Waves
Teens. The program inspires teens
ages 13-19 to learn how to "make and
take" various crafts they can take
home. "I always have instructions that
go with the crafts for teens to read,"
said Linda Hesketh, the energetic
leader of Madison County Youth Ser-
vices.
Hesketh said that last year, teens
made wooden harmonicas and fire-
crackers. The firecrackers were made
out of a toilet paper tubes, with a pipe
cleaner, construction paper and bub-
ble wrap, which "exploded" when
popped.
Make Waves Teens this summer
lets teens create water-themed crafts
such as sea globes and lanyards to
wear at the beach. The program in-
cludes special guests for plenty of
summer fun. Expect the unexpected!
The June 21-July 30 summer
schedule for Make Waves Teens starts
as follows: the Lee Public Library pro-
gram takes place on Mondays from 2-3
p.m., and continues every Monday at
the same time; the schedule at the
Madison Public Library is every Tues-
day from 2-3 p.m. and the program
gears up at the Greenville Public Li-
brary on Thursdays from 2-3 p.m.
The teens have been very recep-
tive," said Josia Greathouse, who
works at the Lee Public Library. This
is the first year Lee's library is offer-
ing the teen program. She said teens
are enjoying their new library and of-
ten hang out to use the computers, and
they check out dvds and books.


Greenville Public Library manag-
er, Michelle Holbrook said, "We're
hoping to have some excitement this
summer." She said artist Linda Wal-
dron and Freda Holley are taking the
reigns for Make Waves Teens arts and
crafts on Thursday afternoons from 2-
3 p.m. "We've planned an outside day,"
she said.
Teen Volunteers Get Busy
While teens will have their own
Make Waves Teens summer program
at local libraries in Madison County,
another opportunity is available to ex-


April Brooks, library manager at
the Madison Public Library, encour-
aged teens to expand their knowledge
of the library and its various jobs from
assisting with the children's summer
reading program to shelving books and
dvds. She said a Teen Advisory Board
is also in the works for interested teens
to join.
"Volunteering is a great opportuni-
ty to gain experience for employment
resumes and college applications," said
Brooks, who has a master's degree in Li-
brary Science from Florida State Uni-


versity in Tallahassee.
Brooks said the Young Adult sec-
tion of the Madison Public Library has
college prep books, FCAT resources,
ACT and SAT study guides as well as
books on resume and employment
skills. Teens on their way to becoming
lifelong readers will also enjoy the
new Young Adult teen fiction and non-
fiction books, too.
This summer's reading theme
centers on the ocean, so the Madison
Public Library is partnering with
Creatures Featured Pet Shop on Base
Street to set up a beautiful aquarium
inside the library.
"Also, we need donations from
the community of baby jars and ma-
son jars," said Brooks, which un-
doubtedly has something to do with
the sea globe craft project.
For children age 6-12, the Make a
Splash! Read summer reading pro-
gram is already packed full of big,
special events with One Heart music
and stories with puppets. The Kickoff
is June 14-18, followed by story times,
book clubs, movies, and drama pro-
grams June 21-July 30, guaranteed to
be fun with the help of teen volun-
teers.
Each library is providing a free
summer reading program schedule
for kids and parents from the Suwan-
nee River Regional Library System.
Teens may apply as volunteers at
each respective Madison County
public library for a jump start on an
exciting and productive summer.

Ernie said. "We are family

Ernie said that it is
cheaper to operate using

Expert Chips Away At Computer Virus


uireene runulsnlng, Inc. mrnoo ny mvananne uiraves, svay nD, zU1 u
Sammy Hicks of Summer Systems in Mladison
helps customers outsmart computer viruses.
ness without anti-virus software, he now loads Mi-
crosoft's software into the computer, available at mi-
crosoft.com/security_essentials.
"They (Microsoft) probably got tired of being
blamed for everything," said Hicks, who said that no
one has returned a computer to his store with virus
problems after using the free Microsoft anti-virus soft-
ware.
Another problem Hicks said that has left comput-
ers at risk: many people with Windows XP still haven't
installed the free Service Pack 3, a major Microsoft up-


date that includes new pop-up blocker features, as well
as spam and attack protections.
Paid subscriptions for anti-virus software continu-
ously update bugs and fixes, too. Just like a human
virus or bug, though, Hicks says a disease has to be
"caught" before vaccines or fixes can be found.
"I haven't seen a new virus in three to four months.
What I'm seeing is variants of the same virus," said
Hicks. He says somebody wil hack into a web site, and
make one small letter change or an alteration to the
way the web site looks. Clicking on an altered web site
can lead to major trouble.
Even Hicks has visited a familiar web site that he's
gone to daily, then noticed something didn't look right,
and immediately pulled the plug on his computer to es-
cape the clutches of a virus. He said pulling the plug
should generally not hurt the computer.
Some people are keeping their photo albums on
their computers, but Hicks tells them to buy a USB ex-
ternal hard drive for storage. It can be a lifesaver if
their computer goes down in a virus attack. A recent
customer faced having their computer rebuilt in order
to save 10 years of family photos,
At Summer Systems, the focus is especially on com-
mercial clients that need help. One store owner in
Starke called when his POS System crashed and he
wanted to get back into operation quickly This type of
retail information is worth thousands of dollars to a
business. Hicks dropped everything he was doing and
went to the rescue, bringing the system back up.
Dr. John Lewis of the Madison Veterinary Clinic
said he has called on Sammy Hicks and Summer Sys-
tems for almost two decades: "He takes care of us. If we
didn't have Sammy, then I'd probably have to get rid of
these dang computers."
Summer Systems' phone number is 973-8855. The
business offers web hosting and server hosting to the lo-
cal community as well.

Boost Your Savings and Investments
during "Empty Nest" Years

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
You've finished paying your children's college bills. Maybe
you've even paid off your mortgage. So now that you're in your
"empty nest" years, you don't have to worry about where the
money is going, right? In reality, you may be caring for aging
parents and possibly even dealing with "boomerang" kids
returning home. Nonetheless, at this stage of your life, you
need to focus your efforts on saving and investing for the retire-
ment lifestyle you've envisioned.

If you're concerned about whether you'll be able to afford retire-
ment, you aren't alone. Consider the following figures from the
2009 Retirement Confidence Survey, published by the
Employee Benefit Research Institute:
*Just 13% of the workers surveyed said they are very confi-
dent about having enough money for a comfortable retirement.
This represents the lowest level since the Retirement
Confidence Survey began in 1993.

*Seventy-two percent of workers up from 66% in 2007 -
are planning to supplement their income in retirement by work-
ing for pay.
These figures are probably driven, in part, by the recent reces-
sion, but they also reflect a general uneasiness among workers
about how well they've saved and invested for retirement. As
you know, it's not easy to save for retirement and pay for your
kids' college and make your mortgage payments. Like many
people, you might have just done the best you could for all
these years. But if you've finished paying off some major
expenses, you might have more chances to boost your retire-
ment savings.
Here are a few suggestions:
*Increase your contributions to your employer-spon-
sored retirement plan. In 2010, you can put up to $16,500 into
your 401(k), 403(b) or 457(b) plan, or $22,000 if you're 50 or
older. Your contributions are typically made with pretax dollars,
so the more you contribute, the lower your taxable income.
Plus, your earnings can grow on a tax-deferred basis.
*Increase your IRA contributions. Even if you have a
401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan, you
may still be eligible to contribute to a traditional or Roth
IRA. In 2010, you can put $5,000 into an IRA, or $6,000 if
you're 60 or older. A traditional IRA grows tax deferred, while a
Roth IRA can grow tax free, provided you've held your account
at least five years and you don't start taking withdrawals until
you're age 59V2.
*Rebalance your investment portfolio. Maintaining the
,gt rnix of et rnt scoannabla br tci acgr thn oei eadd
vehicles to potentially boost your retirement savings. On the
other hand, if you are within, say, five years of retirement, you
may also want to reduce the effects of volatility on your portfo-
lio, which means you'll need some income-producing invest-
ments that carry a relatively lower level of investment risk.
There's no magic formula for achieving the correct balance, so
you'll want to work with a professional financial advisor -
someone who knows your goals, risk tolerance and time hori-
zoand wh htas he x etise and experience necessary to

Becoming an empty nester may provide you with opportunities
to do things you haven't done before such as concentrate
your resources on building the type of retirement you deserve.

Madison County Carrier 7A


By M.K. Graves
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Sammy Hicks of Madison found out that the first
computer virus cropped up in the early 1970s on
Arpanet, the forerunner to the Internet. It was called
the Creeper and it copied itself with the message, "I'm
the creeper, catch me if you can!"
For 20 years, Sammy Hicks has owned Summer
Systems, a computer repair company that is also Madi-
son's only local internet service provider. His wife,
Brenda, owns Brenda's Styles next door on Highway 90
near Pizza Hut.
Last Wednesday Hicks was wrestling with getting
control of a computer that had 177 viruses on it. "I see
computer viruses daily," he said. Hicks is very aware
that a computer virus is a computer program that can
copy itself and infect a computer, but people easily get
that mixed up with other types of malware, adware and
spyware.
The bottom line: Sammy Hicks says 90% of the
time computers get viruses because people have not
kept their anti-virus software updated. Hicks thinks it's
sad when computer owners click on what looks like a le-
gitimate web site, only to have their computers com-
mandeered or infected with a virus.
"It's like someone going by your door and throwing
a brick in the window," said Hicks. It may take 2-3 hours
to clean a virus off the computer. He knows that paying
$50-$75 is a major hit to a family's weekly budget. As a
result, Hicks charges a flat fee, and a maximum of $150.
He even suggests that if it's a really bad virus, the cus-
tomer may want a rebuilt computer instead.
Although using free anti-virus software saves mon-
ey, Hicks has found that "freebies" don't usually update
automatically because the update has to be clicked
manually For the unsuspecting computer owner, this
could leave a major gap in computer protection.
Hicks said last year Microsoft came out with its
own free anti-virus software that he believes is a good
product. He said if a computer is brought to his busi-

Matthew Robinson is truly spreading his wings beyond Madi-
son. Matthew is the eldest son of Ray and Maria Robinson. His
brothers are Mark, Luke and John Robinson. Matthew is 17
years old and will graduate from Madison County High
School on June 4 of this year. He was a Cowboy football player all
Four years of high school, where he played positions including: safe-
ty, corner, running back, long-snapper and he also played on allof the
special teams.
Matthew will also graduate in the top 20 in his class of 160. He has
a grade point average of 3.75 and will graduate with honorS.
However, Matthew's accomplishments after Cowboy
football and MCHS are the ones that will set sail for
the rest of his life. Matthew has recently been ac-
cepted into the Florida State University School of
Medicine, where he will major in Biology. He
plans to attend medical school after receiving hiS
Bachelors of Science degree from FSU. In the fu-
ture, he would like to become an anesthesiolo-
gist.
Matthew's interests and hobbies, however
have not changed that much. During football
season, Matthew enjoyed playing at Boothill
Stadium every Friday night, lifting weights with
his team every day, and was also a member of the
wrestling team. Now Matthew has changed his fo-
cus to mixed martial arts (MMA), more common-
ly seen in the Ultimate Fighting Championship
(UFC).

New NFCC Fitness Center To Open In August


~-- -~-- ~


8A Madison County Carrier


Wednesday, June 2, 2010


By M.K. Graves
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Wellness is on tap
for the community col-
lege in Madison.
After a spectacular
facelift, the North
Florida Community
College Colin P. Kelly
Gymnasium will shine
as a 29,904 square ft.
multi-purpose fitness
center.
With a new name
approved by the NFCC
Board of Trustees, the
Colin P. Kelly Fitness
Center is well on its
way to completion by
the fall semester in late
August.
"This showpiece fa-
cility will provide some
amazing opportunities
for fitness and recre-
ation for our students
and staff," said NFCC
President John
Grosskopf in a state-
ment from the NFCC


Office of College Ad-
vancement.
The $4.9 million
dollar project was fund-
ed after NFCC received
Public Education Capi-
tal Outlay (PECO)
funds in 2009, which
specifically helps Flori-
da college campuses to
improve their facili-
ties. The cost of the fa-
cility is still within the
guaranteed maximum
price established prior
to beginning construc-
tion.
The NFCC basket-
ball court, which was
built in 1965, will be re-
painted and restriped.
New construction,
which includes the Fit-
ness Center and recre-
ation room, has added
12,413 square feet to the
original building. The
entire building will be
remodeled with an
added and enhanced


entry and lobby.
Much needed class-
room space for NFCC
Community Education
courses will be another
feature of the renova-
tion. The expansion


will allow for state of
the art fitness equip-
ment to be installed,
such as cardio equip-
ment and weight lifting
systems. A request for
Dronosal is being writ-


ten to request bids on
the fitness equipment.
Outdoors, the new
Fitness Center will
sport a one-half-mile
walking track to round
out the healthy regime.

May is better hearing and speech
month. This means that throughout the
country people are trying to raise aware-
ness for those who suffer from commu-
nication disorders.
Madison County Central School,
with the assistance of five ladies, has
opened new doors to students with
speech deficiencies. These five ladies;
Phyllis Bailey, Georgette Martinez,
Tracey Platt, Angie McGee and Lori
Newman, are helping students in Madi-
son County become stronger and more
confident with their speaking.
Communication disorders affect
more than 43 milion people in the Unit-
ed States. These disorders include
speech, hearing, voice and language
problems. Speech issues include stu-
dents who have stutters, voice problems
and those who are unable to say sounds
correctly
At MCCS the speech therapists are
always busy Each lady is responsible for
75-100 students; from MCCS, Greenville,
the Academy and other surrounding
schools.
Each lady shared their opinions on
why they enjoy helping the children.


Bailey share, "I love to see the dif-
ference our program makes in the chil-
dren's lives. From the time they enter
school until the time they are able to
speak well on their own. It is a blessing."
Platt affirmed, "I enjoy seeing the
children's faces when they say a sound
correctly It is like it clicks that they can
do it on their own."


Martinez explained, "It is a very ful-
filling job. I have always liked kids and
enjoyed working with them. To see how
frustrating it is for them to not be able to
say it right is sad. However, being able to
help them and see how it affects their life
makes it all worth it."
Newman stated, "Seeing the
progress that the students made is most


fulfilling. Seeing their face light up when
they something right."
The jobs that these five women must
do are innumerable. For some students
the ladies must go to the classrooms and
help the teacher be able to communicate
with the student also. Others are
brought into small group sessions, three
to six students, for thirty minutes to help
teach them how to say sounds and words
properly. Consultations are also re-
quired with students and parents at
times.
How can someone become a speech-
language pathologist?
A SLP must have a Masters or Doc-
toral degree, as well as a Certificate of
Clinical Competence from the American
Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
Finally, SLPs must have a state li-
cense or Department of Education certi-
fication.
For parents who are not sure if their
child suffers from a communication dis-
order, there are screenings. Annual
screenings are available for children
from the ages of 3-4, in March or April
every year. For more questions, contact
MCCS's language-pathologists or your
child's school for screening opportuni-
ties.

City of Mlladison, Florida
2009 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality
water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking
water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water
resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. The city's water is secured from three wells located around the
City. Your water is drawn from the prestigious Floridan Aquifer and is chlorinated for disinfection purposes then fluoridated for dental
health purposes; a sequestering agent is also added for the purpose of corrosion control.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Mr. Johnny Webb, Water
Superintendent for the City of Madison at (850) 973-5081. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled
meetings. They are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall, 321 SW. Rutledge St., Madison, FL.
The City of Madison routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules,
and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1
to December 31, 2009. Data obtained before January 1, 2009, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in
accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.
The Department of Environmental Protection has performed a Source Water Assessment on our system in 2009. These
assessments were conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. Four,
4, potential sources of contamination were identified with moderate susceptibility to city wells. The assessment results are available
on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep~.atate.fl.us/swapp.
Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a safe and
dependable water supply we sometimes need to make improvements that will benefit all of our customers. These improvements are
sometimes reflected as rate structure adjustments. Thank you for understanding.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and
wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some
cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff,
industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff,
and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial
processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the USEPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain
contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for
contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead
in drinking water is primarily from components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Madison Water Department is
responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When
your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds
to 2 minutes before using water for drinking and cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your
water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from
the Safe Drinking Water Hotline Or at http:// www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
All drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some
contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information
about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking
Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised
persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with
HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people
should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of
infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided
the following definitions:

Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE
is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of trihalomethanes
(THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR
compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR.
Maximum contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close
to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or
expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing
evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or
expected risk to health. MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water
system must follow.

Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1)- one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg//)- one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water,

The state allows us to monitor for some contaminants less than once per year because the concentration of these contaminants
does not change frequently. Some of our data, though representative, are more than one year old.

Sc~ho II






By Kristin Finney
Greene Publishing, Inc
High school days are now over for numerouS
Madison County residents. Now what happens?
Some will continue their education at a univer-
sity or community college. Others will, join thne
working world and some will even enter the military.
There are even some who have no idea what they
want to do.
Madison County schools have completed the
process; the process of turning a freshman into a se-
nior, of turning a child into an adult. This proceSS,
which takes a total of thirteen years, will end for
several students this month,
As a senior in high school, it can be challenging
to figure out the next step in life. Every individual's
path will be different, and no path is better than an-
other.
Some MICHS seniors' plans include: Nikita Be-
dard and Allison Behlor plan to attend Santa Fe
Community College and later the University of
Florida. Justin Sirmon, Matthew Robinson and sev-
eral others plan to attend FSU, while several other
students plan to remain at North Florida Communi-
ty College.
The possibilities for a graduating high school se-
nior are endless. Unsure students are encouraged to
research, research, research. Study about colleges;
see which college will be the best fit. Different cam-
pus sizes and class sizes will greatly affect some of
the choices made. Also, trying different hobbies will
help students figure out where their interests lie.
Studying job outlooks online will also help in de-
cision making for those who are interested in enter-
ing the work force. Figuring out which jobs are
expected to grow as well as increase will help in the
process of finding a job.
The Internet can be a great resource to find out
any information that a student needs. However, it is
important to research from a reliable source. Reli-
able resources are often followed by .org, .edu and
.us, while some .com's are less reliable. This is be-
cause in a .com. anyone can add or subtract informa-
tion from the page.
Another helpful tip is to do something enjoy-
able. Everyone does not have the same interests
therefore everyone should not have the same job. A
student wiho likes computers may be interested in
graphic design, or someone interested in cars may
enjoy being a mechaniC.
The simplest way to explain this is that every-
one is different. Every plan will come with pros and
cons. Students should make their life choices based
on what they want, and no one else. This is the time
that wings will be spread and the rest of life begins.


Question:
I saw a pretty young girl 1ast week. I wondered why
she wouldn't smile. She was hiding her smile with her
hand. When I finally saw her smile I saw she had all these
black holes across the front of her smile. Why does she
have all those black holes across her smile?


Answer :
I have heard the famous cosmetic dentist, Dr Pete
Dawson say many times that the most wonderful thing a
woman can put on every morning is her smile. I suppose
that is true for everyone, men and women. Instinctively
everyone knows that. I have been asked about whitening
teeth for as long as I can remember as a dentist. If you
took all the questions that are asked to dentists, whitening
is the most common question. So many of the toothpastes
advertize their whitening formula. I have even heard
dental floss advertize whitening if you can believe that.
Fortunately, we have so many ways to give patients the
attractive smile they desire-
The hand over the mouth is the universal "I am
ashamed of my smile" signal. It just sort of happens.
Commonly from people wrho are embarrassed by their
crowded & overlapped teeth. Maybe they have a broken
tooth or a discolored tooth.
Unfortunately we now have a new condition that keeps
people from smiling....black holes in the front teeth.
These black holes happen in young patients (teens and
twenties) that have gotten into crack cocaine. These
patients get so addicted to crack that they are getting high
repeatedly. Each time they get high they also get the
"munchies" and consume sugary foods. These black
holes across the front of the teeth are signs of rapidly
progressing tooth decay on "steroids." For the dentist it
is hard to stop until the patient gets off of the cocaine.
So if you smile with your hand over your teeth, you
may be having a Bill Engvall moment. That may be your
sign to see your Dentist to fix your smile.

Host A Family-Style Receptionl
Instead of presenting your Ilin
ner course by course, serve a commu-l
nal meal. Use a fixed menu and ha\ea
large portion of each dish at everr\
table. Comfort foods, such as miniblurg-
ers, macaroni and cheese and pizza. a re
served best family style.
Marry At Home
If you plan it right, hosting a wedding in your 011\ n
backyard can save you lots of money...but only if :s ou
keep the guest list small. To pull it off, serve a simle mealI
and take the do-it-yourself decor approach (think: mon:1ln
jars filled with homegrown flowers as center pieces).
Elope, Then Party
Throw a post-elopement bash in lieu of a traditional recep-
tion anll you stand to save thousands.
Yo:ur party can follow whatever dress code or theme you'd
like. and the memories can still be magical.
Register For Your Honeymoon.
Now that you've emptied your pockets on the wedding,
ho:w can you afford a honeymoon? Register for activities
or money toward your flight or hotel with a company
........like Traveler's Joy or Starwood, which offer couples
the chance to put a little honeymoon fun ahead of
new flatware. To set up a honeymoon registry, vis-
it WeddingChannel. com/registry.
