SRWMD Budget

MISSIOH Programs,
The Suwannee River Water Management Dis-
trict Governing Board this week approved the ten-
tative FY 2012-13 budget as well as a new budgeting
method that more accurately reflects and supports
the agency's core mission and includes significant
funding for cost-share p~rograms.
The 2012-13 budget represents a revised stan-
dardized approach to budgeting and fiscal respon-
sibility. For the first time, the District has
developed an annual operations budget. This ap-
proach, consistent wi~th~ other water management
districts, allows for improved tracking of costs
and performance evaluations.
"This budget includes targeted expenditures
that are expected to produce tangible results in ef-
fectively addressing the fundamental issues of wa-
ter supply and water quality," said District
Executive Director Ann Shortelle.
One change involves the designation and fund-
ing of reserves. Rather than carrying over each
year, the bulk of reserve funds which currently
totals $44.6 million will be spent down over a

four-year period. The District has chosen to desig-
nate funds to support projects and cost-share pro-
grams that will benefit the citizens of the District.
The proposed millage rate of 0.4143, or $41.43
for every $1,000 of assessed property value, is un-
changed from last year. The owner of a $200,000
house with a $50,000 homestead exemption would
pay $62.14 in property taxes to the District and will
see no increase in taxes.
In 2012-13, the District will set aside $3 million
for agricultural and interagency-local government
cost-share programs. Examples of agricultural
programs include installation and implementation
of water conservation and nutrient management
improvements and practices. Local government
projects may include alternative water supply, wa-
ter quality improvement, and flood control pro-
jects,
The District will hold public hearings on the
budget at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 11, and
Tuesday, September 25, Both hearings will be held
at District headquarters in Live Oak.

'We WTere There

Looking back on our many years in the newspa-
per business brings back memories of people and
events that we have done and experienced. I have of-
ten said that no other occupation in life could equal
or come near to events of the wonderful people we
have met and the many occasions that we have been
a part of that have made history in our lifetime.
One of the most memorable event we wNere a
part of was the United States' Space Shuttle liftoff
in 1981L. Tommy was the President of the Florida
Press A~ssociiatimi and we had been invited to be
there by Congrrssmann Don Fugua.. Our three chil-
dren, Harvey, William, and Emerald, were with us,
and t-hey, too, witnessed this one-of-a lifetime experi-
ence.
We were there i!!!!!
That was truly the age of Buck Rogers.
Years ago when children read the comic strips,
it was almost unbelievable that one day there would
be men and wNomen going out into space.
My husband Tommy and I and our children
were thrilled to be a part of the first U. S. Space
Shuttle at 6:50 a.m., on Friday, April 10th, 1961.
While the~re. we met manyl\ many well-known men
and women, and many celebrities who were invited
to sit in the VIP section where we were as well.
One well-knownz person wrho sat right behind us
was Stephrn Spielberg.
On the grounds of the event were other well-
known people,
Words cannot describe how we felt as we stood
there at Cape Canaveral and saw the first usable
spaceship, the Columbia. It actually thundered into
space on a tower of white-hot flame shortly after
sunrise Sullnda morning. It was beyond any expec-
tation we had imagflined
We felt lucky to have been ilnvitedl to the Cape
Friday morning, April 10, for the original launch-


In the story on the school board meeting in
last Wednesday's newspaper, it was mistakenly
published that Valencia Barnes had been sus-
pended from her job as assistant principal and
that she was not on the list of people whose con-
tracts were recommended for renewal by the
Madison County School Board. These errorswuere
ours and w~e apologize.


2A1 Madison County Carrier


WS;ednesday, July 18, 2012


seemed to be going in the opposite lanes, toward
the Cape, And, predictions were right. There were
traffic jams as early as 2:30 a.m. at the exits to the
cape on al s. # 1.
The excitement of the morning was evident
everywhere. As we boarded the buses and began
our ride to the Cape, our efficient NASA guide
pointed out to us the hundreds of people lined up
and down the highways to watch the lift-off!!
As wve got on the Cape grounds, he pointed out
from that point on, only special guests with NASA
passes, would be that close. Those in cars were fam-
ilies of workers and crewmen.
Our bus went right up to the huge administra-
tion sitting and we saw row after row of camera-
men, and national TV crewmen, as well as
newspaper reporters everywhere. We were led to
bleachers that were roped off, known as the '"VIP
Section!"
When we looked around, we could tell why.
There were Gov Jerry Brown of California; Pat
Boone; John Denver; former Apollo astronaut,
Rusty Schweickart; Lisa Minelli; John Gllenn:
Paula Hawkins; Secretary of Treasury Donald Re-
gan and dozens of U. S. Senators and Representa-
tives, as well as dozens of state senators and
representatives, and other NASA guests.
Everyone seemed to want to talk with Fuqua.
He served as the Chairman of the Space and Tech-
nlology~ Committee in Congress, and had been large-
ly responsible for the huge success of this space
shuttle program.
Nancy and Don were gracious hosts. They in-
troduced everyone around, and seemed as excited
about "their people" as everyone else at the site,
Then, the puzzling problem of the space shut-
tle's vital electronic train forced a two day delay in
the launch.
Although we were all tired and on edge when
the delay after delay came, we could only feel for
John W.! Young and Robert L. Crippen, who had
spent more than five hours lying uncomfortably on
their backs in the shuttle's cockpit, only to learn
that they would have to do it all over again Sunday.
The problem concerned one of the five comput-
ers in the revolutionary spaceship, the most ad-
vance manned spaceship ever built. The piesdy
computer was unable to communicate with the oth-
er computers. The delay meant at least 48-hours lat-
er for the first orbital test flight of the Columbia.
We all agreed that if it meant a safe trip for
Youngll and Crippen, it was wuvrth~ it.
As each delay was announced, everyone would
get up from their seats, walk around, and talk. It
was a grand time to get to know everyone else in that
section of bleachers.
Then, as the delay became longer, reporters
were slumped over their typewriters, sleeping. Pho-
tntogrph~ers. whose tripods lined the outer edges of
the lagoon, chanced a nap. On the grass outside the
press tent, a cameraman lay sleeping. The note at-
tached to his camera read: "Wake me up when it's
time.'"
We went back to the comfortable bus for naps.
The publisher, (Tommy), took pictures of those who
had to catch a few "uwiliks."
We went back to the comfortable bus for naps,
The publisher (Tommy) took pictures of those who
had to "catch" a few winks."
Most everyone had had little or no sleep the
night before. With the launch of the Columbia, 10
years in the making, and two years overdue ---- set
for just minutes away, the excitement was too great
to permit sleep.
When the final delay was announced, everyone
was talking of whlethe~r they would make it back on
Sunday or not.
Many were undecided. We were among them.
We gathered out belongings and headed straight


Back in my flying
days, we spent a lot of
time at the gunnery
range. Fighters drop
bombs and shoot guns, so
we practiced ... a lot. In
ten years of flying the F-
4, I've been to the range
hundreds of times. I've
dropped practice bombs
on more than ten differ-
ent ranges, in Arizona,
Nevada, Florida, South
Korea. England, Ger-
many, Spain, Italy and
Turkey. Some ranges
wNere better than others.
A popular range was
Bardenas Reates in
northeast Spain, about 40
miles up the Ebro Valley
from Zaragosa Air Base.
I made a lot of trips to
Zaragosa, or "Z" as we
used to call it, generally
during the cold weather
months. Duringwinter,
the lousy European
weather in England and
Germany was even more
foul than usual. It was
next to impossible to get
visual weather condi-
tions where you could
bomb and strafe, so we
headed south like ducks
to the warmer climes,
The range in Spain
was better than the ones
in Italy and Turkey Al-
though Maniago was
quite close our base at
Aviano, Italy, it was en-
croached by the moun-
tains and quite small.
Konya in Turkey was 200
miles from our base a t
Incirlik; we barely had
enough fuel for more
than a couple of passes.
Bardenas was both near-
by and large. In addition
to a scored range, there
was a fairly good tactical
range with an array of
targets.
A conventional
scored range consists of
a pylon (bullseye) sur-
rounded by concentric
circles. The flash from
the bomb is scored by tri-
angulation. Tactical tar-
gets are trucks, bridges
and the like that are
spread much wider and
can be attacked using
tactical approaches such
as the pop-up maneuver
where the fighter uses
terrain masking to hide
from enemy defenses un-
til "popping up" at the
last moment to attack the
target.
We primarily used
low cost practice bombs
on these ranges with red
phosphorous spotting
charges installed to make
the bomb hit visible. The
Mk-106 "beer can"
weighed about six pounds
and simulated a nuclear
weapon or high-drag
bomb while the BDU-33
weighed 25 pounds and
simulated a lowr-drag,
slick bomb, During my
flying career, I dropped
hundreds of each.
We also strafed when
wrecarried agun (the F-4
C and D did not have an
internal gun while the E
model had a 20mm can-
non installed in the
nose). The "rag" (sort of
a drag chute stretched
between twro poles) had


an acoustic scoring
mechanism that would
record the number of
hits. Hits divided by bul-
lets shot equaled hit per-
centage. If memory
serves me correctly, we
need 25 percent on strafe
to qualify. Bomb hits var-
ied according to the type
of delivery
For each six month
training period, we re-
quired so many hits in
each event to maintain
"mission ready" status.
For bombing, there were
at least six different
types of delivery events.
Needless to say, we spent
a lot of time at the bomb-
ing range.
A range period usu-
ally lasted 20 minutes for
four aircraft in a flight
and it was pretty intense.
About half that time was
spent with 4 Gs on the
aircraft as we turned in
the pattern to keep our
place and prepare for the
next deliver. A full peri-
od was two Mk-106 deliv-
eries, six BDU-33s, and
four strafe passes. On a
warm, windy day across
the turbulent Spanish
high desert, you could
work up a pretty good
sweat.
We usually made our
first delivery a Mk-106
event preceded by a 15
minute low level course
flown on radar and visu-
ally with about four
checkpoints before the fi-
nal attack. Typically a
range mission would last
just under an hour and
consume 15 thousand
pounds of fuel. When we
were on WTD (weapons
training detachment)
duty in Spain, we'd usu-
ally fly two range mis-
sions each day, as many
as 9-10 missions a week.
By the end of the
first week, the "rust" was
off. At the end of the sec-
ond week we were razor
sharp. The third week
was tedious and the
fourth week away from
our home base and fami-
lies was sheer torture.
When we had to extend
for the fifth week, it was
brutal. Back home, the
wife and kids were going
crazy by that time as
well.
I haven't talked
much about the bombing
ranges in the US. Those
in the west such as Ari-
zona (Gila Bend) and
Nevada (Nellis) were
spectacular because of
the wide open spaces and
great flying weather.
Here in Florida, the best
ranges are at Eglin in the
panhandle and Avon
Park near Sebring. The
Eglin ranges (there are
many) are primarily for
wNeapon testing and are
much more instrument-
ed than conventional
practice ranges.
In myten year flying
career in fighters, I
dropped a lot of real
bombs in Southeast
Asia, but I spent more
time practicing on
ranges like Bardenas
Reales.

ing. We were called by Herb Wadsworth (U.S. Reg.
Don Fugua's Chief Aide), who asked us what it was
like being there for the liftoff.
Getting off from the office has always been our
hardest task. We had planned to leave by 10:00 a.m.
Thursday, and arrive in Titusville around 2:00 p.m.
Instrnd. we felt fortunate to leave by 2:00 p.m. and
get there by 5:30 p.m.
It is always nice to have frieIndls. but we must
count Bob Hudson, publisher of the Titusville Star-
Advocate, as one of the very best back in those days.
We called Bob as late as Tuesday, because we cold
not find a room anywhere near Cocoa Beach, and
Bob, as late as Tuesday, came through like a champ.
He not only had us a room at the Howard Johnson
MIotel waiting when we arrived, but had a party go-
ing on there for astronauts and invited guests as
well.
We promptly change-d, and spoke briefly wilth
those who already knew all about us (from Bob'S
vivid descriptions), and then headed for Cocoa
Beach to find our way to the Holiday Inn and
Fugua's suite during daylight hours )knowing full
well1the next morning's ride would be in pitch black'
and under adverse circumstances in bumper to
bumper traffic.
We got over to Fuqua's suite, and there were
dozens of people we knewv from this area. There
were folks from Perry, Cross City, Gainesville,
Jasper, and other nearby places,
We sawv the James Langfords of Tampa (Don's
uncle): his dad, John D. Fuqua of A.ltha, the C. A.
La ngford~'s of Perry, and Kenneth Fuqua of Talla-
hassee, (his brother).
We sawv from Live Oak: Buddy Nutt; the James
Cannlons,, the Wlendell Lewis', the Lavoyume Boggus';
from Gainesvile, William and Mae Clark; from Per-
ry, Joe Burns, and many others.
We met dozens of other folks, many of whom wve
knewv by name, and had a grand time talking of the
next morning's exci ting events.
We left by 10:00 p~m., knowing it would take us a
good hour to get back to Titusville.
As we went to bed about 11:30p.m., knowing it
would take us a good hour to get back to Titusville.
As we went to bed about 11:30 p~m,, we called the
front desk for a wake-up call at 1:00 1.m., giving our-
selves two hours to make the ride back over to Cocoa
Beach, where we were to board the NASA bus at
32:30 a~m.
We made it in plenty of time. All the traffic

for Sanford to meet our church group. We had not
eaten supper the night before, had had no breakfast
(except for a doughnut and coffee at Fuqua's suite)
and had had no lunch, except for a doughnut, and
coffee at Fuqua's suite), and had nothing at all to eat.
By the time we reached Sanford, we were fam-
ished. We ate our Brunch Lunch and Supper at
4:30 p.m. Friday afternoon.
Our group got to the motel about 6:00 p~m, Fri-
day afternoon. And, then we all "died."
After a good nigh~t;s sleep, wre were ready to go
on to Deland the next day, and sit in on a grand
Praise Fest.
We saw Mary Ellen's (my) buddy from the Uni-
versity- of Florida days, Margie Duncan, who
worked later with the Baptist Ministry on campus at
Stetson, It had been 21 years since we had seen each
other. She was working with the Baptist Ministry
on campus at Stetson.
After Praise Fest, we took our children and
headed for Orlando and Disney World. Our Harvey
preferred to come home with the church group. He
was "beat," he said-

Elizabeth Baptist Church at Disney
World, and after a family discussion,
we decided we would return to the
Cape the next morning, meaning an-
other night of no sleep.
Wle left our motel in Orlando at
1:30 a.m, after a call to Cocoa Beach
and Herb telling us to be there by 3:00
a.m,, if possible.
Wle made it, writh 15 minutes to
spare.
The excitement was still there.
W~e asked Don and Nancy if they
had gon home during the twvo=day de-
lay, and they said, "No wray." They
added that "We stayed and baby-sat
this project."
Our good friends Al and Lori
Neuhartth had the VIP's out to their
magnificent "Pumpkin Center," for a
party during the exciting few days.
Everyone was n alting to know,
"'Do all Florcldians~ live like this"'"' (Al
was the Chairman and President of all
the Gannett newspapers in the United
States and Lori was a former State
Senator.)
We loaded our buses by 3:30 a.m.,
and headed once again to the Cape.
Everyone felt sure that '"todayi was the
Bay."'
As the countdown came, the
shouts came forth. Everyone was ex-
cited beyond wNords as they knew it
was --gettinge ready to happen."
Then, the Columbia began to
make the ground tremble.
The launch of the space shuttle
was so surprisingly spectacular, emo-
tions ran deep.
Mary Ellen forgot to take movies
she was so enthralled with it all. But,
the publisher got his shots.
When the Columbia left the Earth,
everyone had to drop their cameras to
watch.
Former Apollo astronaut Neil
Armstrong, the first man to walk on
the moon, wras a awred as anyone.
"I'm sure Bob and John are even
more delighted than I am," he said. "I
know they are glad to be off the
grounder -and -not in a simulator
again. They've been wonrking and
training a long time now.
Armstrong was not the only star
of space in the VIP section. Former
Apollo astronaut Rusty Schweickart
was also there. He was so happy; he
was everywhere. He shook hands and
greeted everyone he saw.
When the Columbia shot off,
though, all the celebr~ities in the
--grac~ndstnd took a back seat. They
would ordinarily have been the ones to
have the center of attention.
But, no one was paying them any
attention as the ground shock. They
played second fiddle during those few
historic moments to the Columbia.
We were seated up high on the
bleachers and had talked briefly with
a couple and a friend from California.
We did not know that the man we had
sat in front of was Steven Spielberg,
who directed the movie, "Close En-
counters of the Third Kind," until the
shot was over. The\~ had told each oth-
er, "I'm glad we're sitting over in this
corner, maybe they won't see us."
But, everyone did, and the cam-
eras moved in, as did the reporters
and questions.
Spielberg felt just like the rest of
us who had seen the close-up shots.
"I've never seen annthing~ like this,"
Spielberg told the reporters.


Everyone was yelling, "Go, baby,
go."
It was simply magnificent.
It was the greatest thing our fami-
ly had ever seen.
And, as proof that the United
States is leading the world in space,
technojlog.\\ the landing at 1:30 p.m. at
Edwards Air Force Base in California
was just as 1PL.Frfect
We we~eiltt in C"ahfornial~ to see the
landing, but we did watch it on our
lunch break Tuesday, and it was just as
historic. Thnung and Crippedn have
both been the world's two best pilots.
Our family has many moments of
the occasion. The children received
patches that showN the Columbia. Wle
have our NASA passes that relate,...the
First Launch of the Sp[ace Shuttle and
Mary Ellen and Emerald got a lovely
colorful pendant to wear, a gift of Nan-
cy Fuqua~ to all the ladies in their con-
gressional party that morning.
The one thing that made us laugh
the most was when our son, William
wanted a NASA cap and he went to
buy one, but they were all gone, so he
turned to the man sitting on the front
row bleaches, behind us and asked.
'"Could I buy your NASA hat fromil~ you?
They are sold out and I want one to
keep." The man (with his wife) sitting
there said, "-No. I want to keep this hat
mysrlf."
William pulled out the few dollars
he had to buy a hat and asked the man,
"Could I buy your NASA hat from you.
I'll pay you $20.00 for it,"
The man answered, "No, I want to
keep my hat."
William then said, "I'll pay you
$25,00 for it."
The man said, again, --No, I want
to keep the hat."
So, William pulled out all the mon-
ey he had, and asked the same ques-
tion... "Could I buy it if I paid you
more for the hat?"
The man said, again, "No, I want
to keep the hat."
The man refused every offer
William had, and The Husband and I
talked later about how we would have
'"given" the hat to a young boy that
wanted something so badly he would
pay all the money he had for the hat.
Later, when the event was ovet; all
the press ran up to where we were sit-
ting in the VIP section, and loudly
said, "Mr. Spielberg, what did you
think of the liftoff? What do you have
to say about the event tulay?" '1'
That is when we discovered that
the man and his wife we had been talk-
ing to was non other than the Steven
Spielberg who directed the movie
Close Enzcounaters of the Thaird Kinad
and was a multimillionaire, who could
have paid money for the hat but didn't
want to. WIe had been sitting and talk-
ing to this famous movie producer and
his wife and didn't even know it. But,
we also learned that he could also be
selfish and not down-to-earth.
But, our experience at the majes-
tic sight of America's first space shut-
tle was a memory we could never
forget. We got a picture of William
and Emerald with Spielberg and his
reaction he told us, "It's just nothing at
all like I imagined." And, that came
from a movie-maker.
What an experience we had. It is
the memories of such happenings that
make life interesting.
Bye for now..,....See 'ya.

Workforce Innova-
tion, a one-stop career
center for those looking
for work and businesses
looking for unrlckrs.
serves a six-county area
that comprises Region 6
in north Florida. consist-
ing of Madison, Hamil-
ton, Taylor, Jefferson and
Suwannee and Lafayette
Counties. Karen Hiers,
who oversees the first
three counties, visited
the Rotary Club to talk
about some of the ser-
vices Workforce Innova-
tion offers the area.
With permanent of-
"Hcea en Mahdios in ntehe
ter on Base Street! and
Live Oak (although the
Live Oak office is cur-
rently not operating at
full capacity due to
flood in~g) as well as two
mobile units operating
throughout the rest of
the six-county region,
Workforce Innovation
provides workforce solu-
tions for the North Flori-
da economy, Hiers told
the club, by helping em-
ployers find qualified ap-
plicants for open
positions in their com-
panies. The organiza-
tion also helps people
find jobs they are quall-
fled for, as well as help-
ing them become more


"\rwjrk-ready." whether
by honing skills they al-
ready have or learning
more marketable skills,
Workforce invests
money in training peo-
ple, nith pr-ogramns such
as the OTJ ("On the
Job'"). When applicants
are more wrork-ready for
the jobs they will fill, the
learning curve is short-
er, saving the employer
time and money
Another service they
offer companies and busi-
nesses is customized
training for groups of
employees, either teach-
ing new skills the compa-
ny now needs of its
w rkers,a r upgrding

cition~s change. If, for ex-
ample, a business now
needs to have its employ-
ees know how to use Ex-
cel spreadsheets,
Workforce Innovation
will find an instructor
willing to come out and
teach a day class on Excel
spreadsheets.
Businesses looking
for workers can place
--Jub Orders" with the
Employ Florida Market-
place and Workforce will
screen applicants ac-
cording to those job or-
ders, to help find the
ones most qualified to
fill those positions. This
is a useful tool for com-
panies that don't have a


lot of time or resources
to interviews a vast num-
ber of job caindidates:
also, employers who
don't have sufficient of-
fice space to conduct in-
terviews, or who are
relocating to MIadilson,
but don't have an office
here yet, can conduct in-
terviews at the Work-
force center.
Workforce also
works with Florida's
economic development
boards to help new busi-
nesses and to have a
trained w~orkor~ce ready
and available should a
business decide to relo-
cate here.
whorsea lookingeveor
al useful services to ei-
ther find a job or make
them more "job-ready."
One of the things
Workforce offers to
make job seekers more
attractive to employers
is certification through
the "Florida Ready-To-
Work" test. This is an
intense, three-hour test
that measures aIbilhti in
standard areas like math
and reading comprehen-
sion, and those to pass
the test can list their
"Rea1dy-toJ-Work"k certifi-
cation on their resumes
- even posting their
scores if they wish. If
they're not satistiel with
their scores, they can do


some additional study-
ing on their own and re-
take the test.
Florida is not
unique in this lype of
job-certification testing,
and in fact, several em-
ployers in the state now
require the "Ready-to-
W~ork" certification be-
fore a candidate will be
considered for a job.
The workforce offce
also offers a resource
room where jobseekers
can use computers to
create resumes or
search online postings
search for jobs they
might be qualified for.
Those who have
been out of the avrk

can find help with re-en-
try into the job market
by working with career
consultants and learn-
ing new skills they will
need for re-entry
Perhaps the most
visible and well-known
Workforce program is
the Summer Youth
Worker program. This
summer they have 16
youth at ten different
work sites, in a wide va-
riety of businesses in
the area. The y-oung peo.
ple spend the summer
seeing how that business
works and finding out
what they need to know
and learn to continue in
that type of business.

Karen Hiers, guest speaker at the Rotary Club,
talks about Workforce Innovation and the many ways
it serves its six-county region in North Florida.


Workforce hopes to
have even more busi-

they start early in the
year finding businesses
that might need young
workers for the summer
months.

Rick Beyer, President of Tallahassee Northside
Kiwanis and Division Co-Chair of the Service Lead-
ership Program, talks to the Madison Kiwanis Club
about opportunities to sponsor service leadership
clubs for Madison youth,
Usually, the Service Leadership Programs
(SLPs) are affiliated with local high schools,
but they can also be through youth centers
and community centers, and they include the
Circle K (KCI), the Key Club, the Aktion Club,
K Kids, Builders Club, Kiwanis One Day, Ter-
rific Kids and BUG (Bringing Up Grades).
When it comes to SLPs, Key Clubs alone
outnumber Kiw~anis Clubs, but not every towvn
or city that has a Kiw~anis has a local Key
Club that it sponsors. Beyer himself recalled
being in the Key Club when he was in high
school, but when he recently visited his alma
mater, he was surprised to find that the pro-
gram wasn't there any more.
The Madison Kiwanis Club has no Key
Club or other SLPs either, but Beyer ex-
plained the step-by-step process for sponsor-
ing an SLP club in Madison. Today's
Leadership Programs, he said. trains the to-
morrow's leaders,
The steps for sponsorship of a program in-
cluded having a committee of Kiwanis mem-
bers who would oversee the SLPs, attend all
the meetings and events, meet with school
principals or facility managers each year
wherever the meeting were herld. and ensure
that all the dues and fees were paid. The Key
Club and Circle K generally pay their own
dues, while the sponsoring Kiwanis Club pays
dues and fees for all other SLP clubs.
Additionally, it was important to hold
joint activities for the Kiwanis Club and any
SLP programs it sponsored for young people,
and for the leadership of both clubs to get to-
gether for at least one annual meeting.
"You have to get involved or it'll fall
apart," said Beyer, adding the caveat that, as
sponsors, Kiwanis members were only there
to offer guidance and support. The students
were there to learn how to stand up and lead,
and their club officers needed to receive the
proper training in such skills both for meet-
igs and beyond the
clubhouse.
Joey ~tton"We've got to train
our leadership for to-
W1Ama a~~i~ nl~li morrow," said Beyer,

How much do you know about Kiw~anis,
seemed to be the theme of the July 12 meet-
ing, and guest speaker Rick Beyer, President
of Northside Tallahassee Kiwanis and Divi-
sion Co-Chair of the Service Leadership Pro-
yrHIn, had plenty of information to offer.
Beyer first became involved in Kiwanis in En-
te~pr-iser. Alabama, and has been involved in Ki-
wanis ever since, except for the time he spent in
the military~ He also spent 32 years as a coach for
South~ athletic prograins, so Kiwanis for him was
"a perfect fit"" he said, especially when it came to
the number of Service Leadership Programss the
club offers for young people.
"How many of these Service Leadership
Pr'og ra ms can you name?"" he asked; he was
traveling to various Kiwanis Clubs around
the region to raise awareness of these pro-
gratus and educate the members on how to
start Service Leadership Programs if they did
not already have them-

Wedrcnesday, July 18, 2012


providing opportunities for students to become immersed in STEMM~ING. The
series of Summer Challenges were launched the week of June 11- 14. At North
Florida Community College students from Jefferson, Madison, and Taylor
Counties worked through a series of engaging mathematical explorations that
integrated algebraic and geometric representations for conic sections: circles,
parabola, ellipses, and hyperbolas. On hand to share the math involved in the
design and fulnctiolnality of roundabouts and to speak with students about en-
gineering as an occupation were civil engineers Jared Perdue and Heath Hen-
derson from the Florida Department of Transportation. The four-day workshop
not only provided some of these rural students with one of their first college on
site experiences, but more importantly connected these mathematical ideas to
the worlds of engineering, science, technology and art. STEM Mentor teachers,
Willie Saffo (Jefferson County), Janine Bertolotti (Madison County) and Janece
Campbell (Taylor County) accompanied the students and assisted Dr. Lou Cleve-
land and Dr. Steve Blumsack throughout the week.
Preparing these students for the next phase of the FloridaLearns STEM
Scholars project in the upcoming 2012-13 school year, the second year of the
three-year funding initiative is an important goal of the Summer Challenges.
By st iulat lning excitement, encouraging deeper understanding of the STEM
disciplines, and motivating greater inquiry and learning, STEM stakeholders
from business and industry, economic development, workforce agencies and ed-
ucational leaders are looking forward with excitement to Florida's ability to
help produce the STEM talent needed to sustain and advance Florida's critical
economic future by tapping the state's underserved small and rural gifted and
talented students' potential home grown.


When the last school bell rang this summer, thousands of Flolrida high
school students headed for fun in the sun, summer jobs, or maybe just lazy days
relaxing after a hard year of academics. But for a group of highly motivated 9th
and 10th grander-s in Florida's small, rural school dlistricts. the end of the school
year signa:led the beginning of summer learning challenges tsgtagd by the Flori-
daLearns STEM Scholars project. During the first project year, 612 gifted and
academically talented students were selected from 27 school districts in 3 re-
gions of the state, the Northwrest, Northeast and South Central, to take part in
collaborative, hands-on experiences in the areas of Science, Technology, Engi-
neering and Math (STEM), explore STEM career paths never imagined in many
of their limited world experiences, and to develop leadership skills. Flori-
daLearns STEM Scholars is a three-year long project, funded through Florida's
Race to the Top initiative from the Florida Department of Education.
The FloridaLearns STEM Scholars initiative was launched in July, 2011 with a
vision to help Florida address its urgent and important STEM talent development
challenge buy focusing onl somlle uf' Florida's most underserved students, its gifted and
talented in the rural regions of the state. The Panhandle Area Educational Consor-
tium (PAEC) located in Chiple. the Heartland Educational Consortium (HEC) in
Lake Placid and the North Florida Educational Consortium (NEFEC ) in Palatka are
working in partnership to help transform teaching, learning and leadership in the
areas of STEM. The $4.5 million dollar project addresses a serious gap in STEM ed-
ucation for gifted and talented students in the state's small, rural school districts
served by their three rural-based regional educational service organ~izations and is
identified as Florldni' Rural STEM Education Initiative.

Your daily iron
needs depend on a num-
ber of factors, including
age, gender and overall
health. While many peo-
ple can get the iron they
need from foods such as
red meat, leafy greens
and egg yolks, some-
times supplementation
is needed. Initial symp-
toms of iron deficiency
can include fatigue, gen-
eral lack of energy and
decreased ability to con-
centrate.
If you are experienc-

toms or think you're not
getting enough iron, ask
your doctor if iron sup-
plementation can help.

Iron Deficient?
Research Your Op-
tions
Whether in your diet
or a daily supplement,
iron is a very difficult
mineral for the body to
absorb.
For example, men-
struating women need to
absorb only 2 mg of iron
daily, yet most tradition-
al iron supplements con-
tain 50 to 65 mg. Of this,
very little is absorbed.
The result is excess iron,
which can lead to un-
comfortable side effects
such as stomach irrita-
tion, nausea, vomiting,
constipation and other
gastrointestinal prob-
lems.
To minimize the
likelihood of such side
effects, look for a low-
dose supplement with a
high absorption rate.
Thswil lei hbodyeabs

By Bryant Thigpen
Greene Publishing, Ic.
In the fall of 2009, this writer had the privilege
of attending the Florida State football season-
opening game versus W~estern Carolina. During
half-time when the announcer was introducing
the inductees into the Hall of Fame, the name
Claude Thigpen was called with thousands of
fans appla uding. That d~a.: a great honor was
bestowed upon a humble man. It's this writer's
pri\-ilege to introduce this man who has lived a
great life with a very interesting story to tell.
On December 15, 1927, Thigpen was born just
north of Greenvile in Madison County; His par-
ents, Elzic and Rosa Belle Thligpenrraised him and
his three siblings on a farm in the country. "It was
my mom's philosophy that as long as she kept me
in the field working, I coulldl't. get in much trou-
ble," he laughed. Thigp~en was among the first stu-
dents to attend the newly built Greenville
Elementary School. He remained in the
Greenville school system, ultimately graduating


from Greenvile High School in 1947.
'"There wasn't much to do for fun back then
other than when we would go to a fair once or
twice a year,"" he said. "In fact, Honey Lake used to
be my swimming hole." In his early years,
Thigpen didn't have too much free time because
when he wasn't at school, he was working on the
farm. When Thligpen reached the age of 15, he
took his first summer job away from home in New
SmynSlna Beach, ser~vicinge dump trucks at an air
base. "I enjo?-ed vor~king during the summer. In
fact, I didn't want to come home to go back to
school."
During the school year, Th~igpenl would work
at the drugstore in Greenville behind the soda
fountain counter. Throughout his entire high
school career, he maintained his job there with
the exceptions of summer months when Thigpen
would leave town to work. But after school and on
weekends, he could be found assisting customers
at the drugstore.

Claude Thigpen: The Story of


Faith, Family and Success




2B 11adcijon~ County Carrier Wed~cnesllay, July 18, 2012 Path of Faith


In recent da?s, there has been an awNakelning in my spirit with regard to
"a knowing" of how active God is in all aspects of life. Truthfully, He~ is
active in all things that relate to all of us, because He doesn't have favorites,
but He respects faith. So often we quote the scripture "He~ w\ill never leave
me nor forsake me," however, if this Word, like the rest of the Word does not
"come alive" in our lives, wJe really don't have faith in it. Faith without
works serves no purpose in our spiritual lives. Scripture quoted is not nee-
essarily "active faith:" but rather when we ask believing and find ourselves
giving thanksgiv~ing before! we see the manifestation.... this constitutes faith.
When this is done continually it builds a stronger more steadfast faith. The
Word must come alive or it is simply the Wor~d on paper God wants us to
become living ep~itles of His written Word. Our mission as ambassadors for
Christ is that everyone should see Christ in every facet of our lives.
In my daily reading, I was reminded that even in our facial expres-
sions (our countenance. everyone should see the reflection of Jesus. Where
does that warm smile and welcoming expression come from? It comes from
a merry heart. Proverbs 17:32 says "a merry heart does good like medicine;
but a broken spirit drieth the bones." Out of the heart flow the issues of life~.
If the heart is not happy, happiness cannot flow out of it. My\ 1reerence is not
simply saying that (I am happyt; but having thle joy of the Lord coming out
of our heart, in such a way that all
Gordonwho come into contact with us will
know that the Spirit of God inlhabits
our temple. The reference in
TERCtor, IIIC, Proverbs is to a heart that is cheerful;
Come See Us For Sales and Service a heart thant is encouraging; a heart
oflrZew~ Hollanrd Equipment that is filed with enthu~isiasm a heart
apNEWYHOMAU that has a positive outlook. A person
< with a merry heart is as a healing
491 SW Range Ave- balm. Wouldn't it be a blessing, if
Madison, FL every person that God allows our
850-973-2245 lives to touch, if we could be "thlat


healing balm"' to all of the issues and challenges of their lives. We can,
because Truth in the w~ord says that we can do all things through Christ who
strengthens us. We simply need to receive that Tr~uth by faith, act on it, and
expect the daily "divine appointments" that God has ordained for our lives.
Pr~o\-erbs 15:13 says that "a merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance."
As I read this it was a reminder to me that God cares about our facial expres-
sions. The W~ord tells us to guard our hearts. That which is in our hearts is
reflected in our facial expressions (our countenance). Therefore, we should
always be watchful and attentive with regard to what enters our heart. The
Word reminds us that all of our words, actions, and deeds are a reflection of
what is in our hearts. When the love of God abounds in our heart, those that
are in our presence wil recognize His presence in us. We should always be
careful to fill our hearts with thoughts that are true, pure and lovely. Let's
examine daily that which we allow to enter our mind and ultimately our
heart.
I am so excited about all that God is doing in the day-to-dayness of my
life. I thank Him for awakening 'a knowing' in my spirit that He does have
plans for me; plans that were put into place before the earth began. He
reminds me in His Word that He is perfecting ALL OF HIS PLANS for me.
Be reminded daily that He also has plans for you; plans that include pros-
per-ity. abundance, and peace. Pray believing and giving thanksgiving as you
pra?: The more often we allow the Word to saturate our daily lives and
actively "do the Wlord," our countenance will reflect it, and those around us
wil be impacted by it. WATCH GOD WORK!!
"The countenance is the portrait of the soul,
and the eyes markE its intentions. "
~Cicero


"Many~!say, Oh1, thatwLemight see some good!
Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O Lord. "

Free.... this word is a very popular and pos-
sibly overused word in our culture today. What
do you think of when you hear it? Some
responses I have gotten are America, fat free
food, no cost, buy one get one or some combina-


tion of them. Google defines FREE as follows:
" not under the control or in the power of anoth-
er; able to act or be done as one wishes." This
definition has been taken very literally in our
culture and churches, everyone has the mental-
ity of "lklE first." In all honesty, I feel this
includes everyone, me as well in some instance
or another. I feel we have taken liberty and
made it our owNn device for obtaining what we
want. Paul wrote to the Galatians about free-
dom, and what it should look like in our lives,
"13 You, my brothers and sisters, wNere called to
be free. But do not use your fr~eedomn to indulge
the sinful nature; rather: serve one another
humbly in love. 14 For the entire law is fulfilled
in keeping~ this one command: "Love your
neighbor as yourselff" (Galatians 5:13-14 TNIV)
Christians are called to be fr~ee, but then Paul
gives us a stern warning to not use fr~eedomr to
indulge ourselves. WhylJ do you think that is? It
is because we use our freedom to get what we
want out of life rather than what Jesus wants
for our life. How many churches build new
additions they don't really need instead of feed-


ing the poor in their community? How many
people save and save for the brand new car
instead of being content with a cheaper model,
and giving some saved money to the needy? I
ask, how much do you love yourself ? If we are
to love our neighbor as much as we do our-
selves, what does that look like? I would guess
that most of us fall under the category of help-
ing themselves more often than helping some-
one else. But, Paul tells us to use our freedom to
serve one another in love. The mentality we
should have is using
our freedom to do what
we want, which should
be choosing to help oth-
ers in their needs
instead of indulging i
ourselves with our
wants. Why? This is the
message and love of
Chr~ist, this is what He
did and how we are
called to spread His
love! wIta Sc~~l

4~B Mad~tison County Carrier Wu~t~lne~solay, July 183, 2012 Path of Faith


',. .


A man was going
from Indianapolis,
Indiana, to Louisville,
Kentucky, when along
the way he had a flat
tire. Stranded on the
side of the road, he was
robbed, his car was
stripped, he was shot,
and left for dead,
A Baptist pastor, on
his way home from the
annual meeting of his
denomination, sawN the
man. But he had a
report to delivert to his
congregation about the
virtuous resolutions
pa~ssedl at the meeting
he had just attended
and an important ser-
mon to preach about
our culture's deterio-
rating family values.
Besides that, his chil-
dren were in the car,
and he refused to trau-
matize them with this
carnage. So he never
took his foot off the
accelerator,
A few minutes later,
a Bishop of the
Methodist church came
driving by A successful
wNoman, she sat on the
board of Focus on the
Family, the National
Association of
Evangelicals. and
Concerned Women for
America. Considering
the scene before her,
she concluded that her
wr~ork in these organiza-
tions must continue.
It was the only way
to stop such meaning-
less acts of violence;
violence most likely
perpetrated by danger-
ous gangs of teenagers
who were the products
of broken homes and


without the proper
Judeo-Christian guid-
ance. She was a mile
past the scene of the
crime before she called
911.
Then a third travel-
er came upon the vic-
tim: A cocaine dealer
and cartel member. A
man who was in the
country illegally, wvho
had booze on his breath
and mar~iiuana in his
bloodstream, and who
hadn't been to Mass
since he was a child.
He sawN the shooting
victim and somehow
his heart was broken
with compassion. He
steered his car to the
side of the road and
jumped out with a first
aid kit and a bottle of
water. He triaged the
wounded man the best
he could, loaded him
into the back seat of his
car, and drove him to
the hospital.
There, this good
neighbor checked his
rescued friend into the
Emergency Room. He
arranged for the trans-
port of what was left of
the victim's car, and he
then went to the hospi-
tal administrator with
a pile of cash, saying "I
don't know if this man
has health insurance,
but I wrill stand good for
the bill r~egatrdless."
Now I ask you,
"Which of these three
do you think was a
neighbor to thle man
who fell into thle hands
of robbers?" Of course
this question is not
mine and neither is the
story. It is a question


hands by helping our
neighbors "to do to
others what we would
have done" for our-
selves.
Clucking our
tongues, shedding a few
tears, and simply
observing the pain of
our world while keep-
ing a religious and
respectable distance
from the suffering is no
substitute for binding
wounds, wiping tears.
and embracing those in
need. We might just
need such an embrace
ourselves one day -
even if that embrace
comes from the most
unlikely of neighbors.

to Jesus. It is a rePtelling
of the parable of the
Good Samaritan.
Jesus friamed~ as
radical a possibility
conceivable by the com-
munity of his day far
more drastic than any-
thing I have said here.
He took a known pari-
ah, a well-established
outcast and no-gooder,
and turned him into a
moral and spiritual
hero all at the expense
of the upright church-
goers.
Jesus told such a
story, not to define the
boundaries of neigh-
borly behavior, but to
dlefine what it means to
love~. Graphically, he
showed his listeners
that those wvho do not

boxes, our precise doc-

right and wrong, and
our church systems are
sometimes more~ capa-

than we professionals

saying we know who
God is.
After all, to act like
God is simply to love.


And to love, it is not

as religiously and
moralistically pure as
possible. No, to love

The Embarrassed Bride

A new bride was embarrassed at being known as a honeymooner,

So when she and her husband pulled up to the hotel, she asked him if
there was any way they could make it appear that they have been married
a long time,

"Sure," he said, "You carry the suitcases,"

Claude Thigfpen


Story cont from Page 18
"When I was born and during
the time I was growing up was really
hard times," Thigpen said. "I was
attending high school while World
Wnar II was going on, and I couldn't
wait to get out of high school so I
could join the service."" And the very
next day after he graduated from
Greenville High, he and a high
school friend, Alvin Scott, joined the
United States Air Force.
Thigpen spent the first three
years of service in the states. "My
original plan was to retire in the Air
Force, and so I re-enlisted at the time
the Korean WNar broke out. They sent
me to Cryptographic School (coding
and decoding messages) and soon
deployed to Korea and Japan.'"
Thigpen spent his final year in the
service in Omaha, N~ebraska before
ending his time after seven years of
service to this country and moved
back to the sunshine state.
"W~e came back and settled down
in Tallahassee,'" he further
explained saying, "It's closer to
home and college would be afford-
able for my children if we lived in
Tallahassee." Thigpenl decided to
further his education, attending
Lively Technical College, graduating
from their business school in the
mid 1950's.
"I got word that Florida State
University was hiring for a book-
keeper, and so I applied and was
accepted. From that moment I never
looked back," he chuckled, and
indeed he's right. Thigpen has been
a part of the FSU staff for over 55
years.


For over half of a century,
Thigpen has served the university in
many different capacities including
bookkeeper, ticket manager, busi-
ness manager, assistant athletic
director, and currently serves as the
courtesy car coordinator. He spent
35 years working full-time with
Florida State before retiring in 1990.
Since then, Thigpen remained with
FSU working part-time with the ath-
letics department.
Thigpen has enjoyed many great
years with Florida State, and is
quick to credit his faith and family
for his success. "I'm very thankful
for my wife who has stood behind me
and supported me all these years,"
he said. In 1985, Thigpen married the
love of his life, Carleen. The couple
has six children, 12 grandchildren
and five great-grandchildren. Two of
his children and grandchildren have
graduated from FSU and he has one
grandchild that is currently attend-
ing the school.
"My faith in Christ has been a
guiding force in my life," he shared.
Thigpen and his wife have been
faithful members at Thomasville
Road Baptist Church, where he has
served as a greeter and in his
Sunday school class.
"I would also like to thank the
fans and supporters in the region for
their loyalty to the Florida State
Athletics program. We've had many
great years and have many more to
come." Not only has Thigpen helped
to establish a legacy at Florida State,
he has built one for himself that is
pillared by his faith and family

RE DS
Pr THE



Everyone seems to love Charlie
Brown, the hero of the comic strip
Peanuts. One day he and Lucy
were strolling along when she
stopped and picked up daisy and
began to pluck the petals one by
one, saying, "He loves me, he loves
me not. I-e loves me, he loves me
not." Plucking the last petal she
said, "He loves me! Charlie Brown,
you love me!"
"Well," he said, "I could have told
you she asked, "But why
didn't you?"
We often neglect to tell those
whom we love that we do indeed
love them -that they are important
to us, that we care for them deeply
and that they mean as much to us
as life itself. It is important that we
speak and share our love with
others. And if the love of God is in
our hearts, then the love of God will
be seen in our lives.


Twisted Mlorality
The more-or-less-reli-
gious woman was deeply
shocked when the new
neighbors sent over on
Sunday morning to bor-
row her lawn-mower,
"The very idea." she
exclaimed to her maid, "of
cutting grass on Sunday!
Shameful! Certainly, they
can't have it. Tell them we
haven't any lawn-mower."

Stone Blind
The Christmas church
services were proceeding
very sucessfullly when a
woman in the gallery got
so interested that she
leaned out too far and fell
over the railing. H-er dress
caught in a chandelier,
and she was suspended in
mid-air. The minister
noticed her undignified
position and thundered at


the congregation:
"Any person in this
congregation who turns
around will be struck
stone-blind.
A man, whose curiosi-
ty was getting the better
of him, but who dreaded
the clergyman's warning,
finally turned to his com-
panion and said:
"I'm going to risk one
eye."

For The Sick
A little girl was in
church with her mother
when she started feeling
ill. ''Mommy," she said,
"can we leave now?"
"No" her mother
replied.
"Well, I think I'm
gonna be sick, Momma!"
"Then go out the front
door and around to the
back of the church and


then behind a bush."
After about 60 seconds
the little girl returned to
her seat,
WMer~e you sick?"' her
mom asked.
"Yes."
"How could you have
gone all the way to the
back of the church and
returned so quickly?"
"I didn't have! to go out
of the church, Mommy
They have a box next to
the front door that says,
TFor the Sick'."

Christian Songs
A minister decided to
do something a little differ-
ent one Sunday morning.
He said, "Today, in church,
I'm going to say a single
word and you are going to
help me preach. Whatever
word I say, I want you to
sing whatever hymn comes


to your mind,"
Thle pastor shouted
out "Cross." Immediately
the congregation started
singing in unison Th~e Old
Rugged Cross.
The pastor hollered
out "Grace." The congre-
gation began to sing
Amazing Grace-
The pastor said
"Power." The congrega-
tion sang There Is Power
in the Blood.
The pastor said 'Sex,'
The congregation fell in
total silence. Everyone
was in shock. They all
nervously began to look
around at each other,
afraid to say anything,
Then all of a sudden, way
in the back of the church,
a little 87 year old grand-
mother stood up and
began to sing Precious
