SCAN ME! By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. The Womans Club Building on Lake Frances was built in 1939, when the Van H. Priest family of Madison donated all the construction materials (brick, mortar, wood, plaster, etc.) used to create the building that faces the lake today. Because skilled labor in a small town like Madison was in short supply in 1930s, the WPA was brought in to do the construction. Since 1939, the Womans Club, as appointed custodian of the building, and holding a 99 year lease on the building, has kept the structure maintained and insured, used the building for its meetings and regularly rented out other civic clubs such as the Garden Club and Junior Auxiliary. It has also rented to other community groups for meetings, weddings, receptions, dances, family reunions, fundraisers and other events, in accordance with a 1939 lease agreement with the city, which owns the piece of property the building occupies. However, the parking lot next to the club building is owned by the Garden Club and the Womans Club rather than the city; each organization owns half the lot and holds the deed for its half of the property. A few months ago, after numerous instances of rentals that left the building vandalized, including destruction of major plumbing xtures and furniture that had to be completely replaced, the Womans Club decided it could not afford to keep paying large sums of money to repair the damage done after each rental. To protect the building from further destruction, the club agreed not to rent the facility out anymore; however, nearly 75 years out from the original lease, no one realized that this would be considered a violation of the 1939 agreement. The matter surfaced earlier this year at a Madison City Commission, when members of the Womans Club, attending the Commission Meeting regarding another matter, found their building listed on the agenda as an item to be discussed. The City of Madison maintained that the building is a publicly owned building and that the members decision violated the original lease agreement. After several meetings and discussions back and forth, the City Commission has proposed that the City of Madison assume control and responsibility for renting out the building and take care of maintenance and all other expenses. The Womans Club, Garden Club and Junior Auxiliary Club have priority in scheduling its meetings. However, the city wants both the Garden Club and the Womans Club to deed thier half of the parking lot property over to the city; theGarden Club Votes Not To Deed Property Over To CityBy Kristin Finney Greene Publishing, Inc.

Madison County High Schools Career and Technical Education (CTE) Programs prepare students for a range of careers, including those in farming and agri-business, something of vital importance for a rural county like Madison. The CTE Programs are federally funded, so resources are limited, but MCHS works hard to sustain those programs and even expand them whenever possible. Sam Stalnaker, Career Pathways Consortium/ CAPE-STEM for Madison County High School, has recently applied for a grant through the Seeds of Change Corporation, toVote On Facebook, And Help MCHS Win A GrantInterested in becoming a homeowner? Now is the time to take the Home Buyers class beginning Monday, May 13 at 6 p.m. at the Madison County Extension Service. The series will run four evenings, May 13, 14, 20 and 21 Lesson topics include credit, home selection, securing a home mortgage, insurance and home maintenance. Many loan programs require clients to complete a home buyers class, this series will meet that needs. Currently, Madison County still has a few SHIP dollars available for distribution. The SHIP program, unique to Florida, assists income eligible individuals and families with down payment and closing cost on the purchase of an existing home. This is a great opportunity for working people of low and moderate incomes to achieve home ownership. Upon completion of the class, participants receive a certicate that is required for SHIP assistants and rural development loans. If you are interested in learning about the homeownership process, complete a SHIP application, available at Suwannee River Economic Council on Bunker Street. To register for the class, call the Madison County Extension Service at 973-4138.First Time Home Buyers Class ScheduledBy Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc. Texting and driving will soon be illegal in the State of Florida, following the Legislatures passage of a bill. In April, the Florida Senate voted 36-0 to outlaw texting and driving. On Thursday, May 1, the bill (CSSB 52) overwhelmingly passed the Florida House of Representatives. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Nancy Detert (R-Venice) enjoyed bipartisan support. The bill, which had earlier been passed by the House, had to be sent back to the Senate, because of an amendment to the bill. Sen. Detert concurred with the amendment and the bill was reconfirmed by the Senate. Senate Bill 52 now goes to Gov. Rick Scott for his signature. The law bans anyone from typing on a device while operating any moving vehicle. First offenses will be a $30 fine and any additional tickets within a five-year period will be a $60 fine and take three points off an offenders drivers license. There is a clause in the law, which allows texting while stopped at a red light.Law Passed Banning Texting And DrivingPlease See Garden Club on Page 3A By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc.

Pain is the number one reason people go to their healthcare provider, and pain is usually the result of inammation. Inammation is the bodys natural response to injury or infection, resulting in redness, swelling, warmth, frequently pain and loss of function. Inammation is vital to the healing process of the injured tissue, as the circulatory system and immune system deliver what is necessary to the damaged site to ght infection and repair injured tissues. Controlling swelling at the time of an acute injury can do much to reduce pain, and the easiest ways to do this is to RICE Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. Rest the injured tissue, ice it, put some compression on it by using a clean gauze pad and applying some pressure, and elevate the injured tissue above the heart. However, once the threat of infection is over, the inammation response should stop by itself. Chronic or systemic inammation is an inammatory immune response of prolonged duration that can last weeks, months or years, causing tissue damage, and is therefore a whole other issue entirely. Testing for C-reactive protein (CRP) is useful as a blood marker for inammation, as it is commonly elevated in those that have various chronic inammatory conditions. Chronic inammatory conditions are therefore systemic rather than local in nature, and it is possible that biochemical individuality may determine what kinds of tissues are affected in a particular individual. It is worth noting that primitive cultures that ate their traditional diet without consuming any "white mans food," did not seem to suffer from chronic inammatory diseases. Tuberculosis became a problem only when they began eating white sugar, white our products, canned vegetables and vegetable oil products. Many disease states are as a result of chronic inammation, such as rheumatoid arthritis, arteriosclerosis, inammatory bowel disease including Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis, and tuberculosis for example. Chronic inammation frequently results in chronic pain. Non-steroidal anti-inammatories (NSAIDs like ibuprofen) are the number one over-thecounter drugs sold for inammation and pain, but they are only a band-aid solution they do reduce inammation, but they dont get at the cause of what is creating the inammation in the rst place. Therefore, rather than resolving the condition, the condition is being "managed". Not only that, but NSAIDs are known to result in many adverse gastrointestinal issues including ulcers, GI bleeding, anemia, renal damage and impaired wound healing. There are more deaths due to NSAID use than AIDS annually. Generally our current diets are HIGHLY inammatory, so it is no wonder inammatory diseases are so prevalent. What would an anti-inammatory diet consist of? Eat no rened polyunsaturated vegetable oils (Omega 6 fatty acids promote the Cox 2 pathway, which equals inammation why take Cox 2 inhibitors when you can encourage the Cox 1 anti-inammatory pathway through diet?). Consume low-mercury sh and shellsh frequently, or take up to 4000mg of Omega 3 sh oils a day. Make sure you eat some quality saturated fat (pasture-fed butter, whole milk or cream, eggs, meat or poultry) so that you can actually utilize the Omega 3 fatty acids that you consume, and so you get adequate amounts of vitamin A. Green leafy vegetables are frequently high in magnesium, which may help to relax muscles. Get yourself metabolically typed so you know what ratio of fats, proteins and carbohydrates you should be consuming. Sugar, and rened our products are highly inammatory because of the glycation they cause, and should be avoided at all costs. Avoid caffeine (as if I would give up coffee or soda). Another cause of inammation are the toxins found in processed food, such as MSG, textured vegetable protein, soy lecithin, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, pesticides, colourings, avourings etc. After getting your vitamin D levels checked and if you are low, spend some time in the sun without sunscreen, so that your body can synthesize vitamin D. Sunblock also blocks vitamin D production, and low vitamin D levels are associated with inammation. Do NOT let yourself burn however, as sunburns raise your risk of skin cancer. Getting adequate dark time each night increases melatonin levels which reduces inammation, as melatonin is a free-radical scavenger. There may be some deeper seated causal issues as to why someone may be suffering from chronic inammation, including adrenal fatigue, food sensitivities, parasites, mold and/or heavy metal toxicity which may need to be explored if improving diet, sun exposure and dark time dont work. If, while searching for the cause of your chronic inammation issues, you want some symptom relief without resorting to pharmaceutical drugs, try using tumeric and ginger. Both these spices are natural Cox 2 inhibitors. The herb bosweilla, although not a Cox 2 inhibitor, also has anti-inammatory properties. Kava Kava has muscle relaxation properties, and can be especially benecial when mixed with magnesium. Proteolytic enzymes containing enteric-coated trypsin and chymotrypsin combined with bioavinoids and vitamin C seem to work as well as NSAIDs at controlling pain and swelling, as long as there is no underlying irritation in the GI tract. I told yuh bout Eds uncle Buford, the 80 year-old, who was Sheriff way back. Buford was in the Marines before he was Sheriff. I gured hed be uh good one ta ask how ta honor Memorial Day, so I went ta see eem. He was sitn in uh rocker, on the porch, shelln peas. He told me it was all about war heroes who fought fer the American Dream. He said The American Dream is, If you earn it, you can have it. He said, Its what makes America strong. Said, The Depression was caused by wealthy stock holders that wanted somem fer nothn. Hard, productive work brought America outa the Depression. Now, uh lotta poor folks want somem fer nothn. Seems now theres more folks that want uh handout than wants ta earn their way. He said, Theres some folks that need and deserve help, but I call people, rich er poor, thats able ta do fer themselves, and want somem fer nothn, thieves. We cant all be thieves er there wont be nothn left ta steal. He said, If well go back to the American Dream of earnn our way, this country will go back ta haven plenty. Fer example, If everybody shelled enough peas, we wouldnt have ta worry about gon hungry. So lets honor those who died fer the American Dream by pursuen the American Dream. Thats what Buford told me. I gotta say, that Buford Floyd is uh wise man. Sincerely Yourn Cracola OLustee ( Cracker fer short )www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, May 8, 2013 2A Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS Diaconate National SecurityJoe Boyles Guest ColumnistSt. Marys Episcopal Church will host an ordination ceremony tomorrow evening at 6:30. The Suffragan Bishop of the Diocese of Florida, The Right Reverend Charles L. Keyser will officiate at the ordination service to consecrate yours truly as the Deacon for St. Marys. Let me retrace the steps so youll see how this process has worked. In 1992, the Bishop of the Diocese Frank Cerveny decided that St. Marys was too small to support a full-time priest. Instead, he decided to appoint someone from within the congregation as a local priest and train them accordingly. Bishop Cerveny selected Ben Pfeil for the job. Ben never went to seminary, and instead, read (self-study) for the position. In this capacity, he faithfully served St. Marys for 20 years. Over the past six to seven years, members of the congregation would approach me with the idea of someday replacing Father Ben. I discouraged that thinking. You can say I was in denial, but so was Peter not bad company. I had some doubts and I knew that the bishop would have a large say-so in that decision. In the early summer of 2011, during a phone conversation, the current bishop, John Howard, asked me to meet with him at Camp Weed in early July. He laid out the proposal; I expressed my doubts; he put my concerns to rest; and he asked me to prayerfully consider the job. Two weeks later, I called back and accepted the responsibility. Bens health was declining. I asked him for any texts he might recommend and he provided one book out of his collection for me to study. He also gave me this piece of Scriptural advice: Pay particular attention to the Old testament. That fall, I met with the Commission on Ministry, a Diocesan group that interviews applicants for the ministry. They recommended my approval, and on December 7, 2011, the Bishop made me a postulant for the ministry. Bens illness took him away from St. Marys in mid-February 2012. With the exception of a brief threeweek return in late August, he could no longer function as our vicar. I took over the responsibilities as acting-vicar shortly thereafter. I would meet with Ben regularly to brief him on parish business and ask his advice about various matters. As always, he was an inspiration. In April of 2012, I began to work with the Chief of Chaplains, Jeffrey Mackey from Melrose, on a sevenpart course of study to prepare me for the duties as vicar of St. Marys. I was, in the classic sense, reading for my new duties. Before there were major universities and seminaries, it was common for entry-level applicants to read for their license, which meant apprenticeship under the tutelage of an experienced professional. On the Ohio frontier in the 184os, my great-great grandfather read for his medical license in this manner. Just before I finished my course of self-study in December, Ben Pfeil died at the age of 88. It marked the passing of an era. He faithfully served St. Marys for 64 years, the last 20 as our priest. In Jesus words, recorded by Matthew, Well done, good and faithful servant. With the completion of my studies, Father Mackey certified to Bishop Howard that I had progressed sufficiently to become a candidate for ordination. The bishop approved, and in March, I met with the Standing Committee, an elected body of advisors to the bishop. I passed their muster and my ordination to the office is now scheduled for tomorrow evening. It is important to note that this is an ordination, not for me, but rater, for our church. Bishop Howards offer to me was to become a local priest for St. Marys. I do not foresee it as a stepping-stone for anything larger. Instead, my job is to minister to Madisons Episcopal community, and when my work is complete, turn over the responsibilities to the next person subject to the bishops approval. The process isnt complete with this first ordination. Our Book of Common Prayer states that deacons: assist priests and minister to the poor, sick suffering and helpless. St. Marys will need a priest, so provided it is Gods will, after six months as a Deacon, we will hold a second ordination to designate me as a fully functioning priest. For eight generations since 1859, Madisons Episcopal community has faithfully worshipped and contributed to the well-being of our community. As Madisons oldest church in continuous use, our role, although small, is historically significant. With Gods blessing, our work and faith will continue for another generation, and many more to follow. With that, I would like to close this simple story by inviting you to tomorrows ordination and confer Gods Blessing on each of you.

Also, there is a clause in the original 1939 agreement which states that if the city were to ever take control of the building, it would have to reimburse the Womans Club for all the money spent on the buildings upkeep and repair; in this instance, everything that has been spent to repair and maintain the building from 1939 until 2013.

The ASK group of Madison hosted a run and walk event on April 13 at Lanier Field. The event raised money to help send the MAP and ASK children to a camp at Cherry Lake this summer that is specically designed to meet Autistic needs. The day began at 8 a.m. with registration opening for the 5K walk/run. The group was asking for donations in place of a registration fee. There was then a kids fun run held at 8:45 a.m. The cost to enter was $1 per child. At 9 a.m. the 5K run/walk began. Then following the run/walk was a free Zumba class. There was also a kids puzzle pieces obstacle course. The ASK group of Madison is hoping to do another run/walk event next year. Leslie McLeod, of the Madison ASK and MAP groups said of the event, We want to thank everyone who made it a huge success. Because of this walk, we are able to not only send all of our members to camp, but we are able to give scholarships to other children with autism/special needs so they can have the same experience. This will be a typical 4-H inclusive overnight camp experience targeting skill sets for autistic and special needs youth. Each and every person who donated and volunteered made a huge impact on these kids. The children can go to camp, like all the other kids. They will make memories, happy ones. The children will benet from a structured and compassionate small group environment. They will build personal and social condence and make lasting friendships. These kids will have this opportunity, because of everyone who supported them. On behalf of MAP, I would like to thank everyone for their support. It means a lot to the parents of these children. We feel so blessed to have such a great community.ASK Walk A Huge Success Photo submitted Residents run/walk to help raise money for the ASK group of Madison.

www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, May 8, 2013 Madison County Carrier 7A W oe Teachers Of Madison County And Salute Them During Teacher Appreciation Week.Bart AlfordSchool Board Member District 5 By Kristin Finney Greene Publishing, Inc. Helen Calidicott once said, Teachers, I believe, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts affect the fate of the earth. During National Teacher Appreciation Week, and throughout the year, it is important to remember the hard work that teachers perform, and the responsibility that they hold. Teachers are caregivers to more children than many people would ever hope to have. They are disciplinarians to more children than any parent could ever imagine. They spend their days watching their students grow and learn, all the while holding their hand through this crazy ride called life. All of this, and very rarely are they thanked or honored for all of their hard work. Monday, May 6, through Friday, May 10, marks the 2013 Teacher Appreciation Week. During Teacher Appreciation Week, everyone is invited to thank their teachers, their childrens teachers and their friends that are teachers for the service that they offer the world. However, dont let this recognition stop on Friday. Let your thanks be known throughout the year. There are many ways to honor a teacher during this week, and the rest of the year. Some examples include: a simple note thanking them for their hard work and dedication, a hand drawn picture by your child, gift cards to local restaurants or stores, gift baskets filled with fruits and treats and much more. Teachers are the backbone of society. They hold the fate of the nation in their hands. They are true heroes and heroines for the hard work that they perform every day. Few people would want to perform the daily tasks that teachers face. They must be leaders to their classrooms, while giving the children room to grow. They must maintain control of their classrooms, against the distractions of 20+ students. Some would call teachers crazy for choosing to put themselves in these situations. Some would say that they are crazy to perform such duties with so little recognition. However, to a teacher, this is all just the price they must pay to make the difference they hope to make in their students lives. Dont let your appreciation end this week. Let your appreciation be shown every day of the year. And most importantly, remember to thank a teacher. Honoring Educators During National Teacher Appreciation Week

Gemmill, III, as the rst principal of James Madison Preparatory High School. The son of a career U.S. Air Force ofcer, Bill has spent nearly 25 years devoted to education as a teacher, coach, administrator, and educator advocate. Much of his energy has focused on instilling the importance of ethics in his students, particularly the values of integrity and character. He believes that owning a skill is a strength that leads to success. Thus, he supports the continuous evolution of education to provide students the opportunities to develop their skills and interests fully. A graduate of Trevecca Nazarene University with a BS in Management and M.Ed. in Educational Leadership, Bill worked in Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools from 1992-2010. He specialized in teaching Computer-Aided Drafting and Design and implemented the ACE (Architectural, Construction, and Engineering) Program at two high schools. He served as Executive Principal of Cohn Adult High School, John Overton High School, and Nashvilles Middle College High School, respectively, before retiring from MNPS. After retiring, he became the Membership and Media Director for Professional Educators of Tennessee, where he managed membership recruitment & retention, advised educators, represented PET at the state legislature, and coordinated member and public relations activities. Serving high school students has always been Bills passion. He looks forward to bringing this passion to JMPHS to help the school grow, build relationships with the community, and congratulate the rst graduating class in 2017. He believes that JMPHS will provide the stimulus necessary to challenge young people to excel. He states, Theres something about all the possibilities for opportunity at JMPHS that is exciting. I wish that there had been such an opportunity when I went to high school myself. As for the JMPHS students, he says, The more students the merrier. I love em all, and they cant do a thing about it! Bill and his wife, Judy, have four children, Billy, Allison, Eric, and Ashley, and three grandchildren. Billy, Allison, and Eric are all married. Their daughter, Ashley, succumbed to cancer in 2008 after being diagnosed when she was a high school senior six years earlier. A courageous young woman, Ashley continues to provide spiritual inspiration to her parents. JMPHS Welcomes Bill Gemmill As First PrincipalAbstinence Is My S.W.A.G. Coming to MCHS

www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, May 8, 2013 14A Madison County CarrierSCHOOL Madison Academy fth grade students and their parents anxiously wait for the time to come each school year for the Florida Capitol tour and Civics Education eld trip, which occurs each spring. This year that day came on April 3, 2013, when 15 students from Mrs. Jessica Webbs class and seven adult chaperones were guests of the Florida League of Cities in Tallahassee. This particular trip came on the dawning of the 500th year celebration of Floridas discovery, making it an extra special occasion. The day also marked the mid-point of the Legislative Session, which students had been learning about and watching (live streaming) during the previous weeks. Upon arriving in Tallahassee, students were presented with an action-packed day in Floridas Capital City. First, they met their District 10 House of Representatives member, Halsey Beshears, where they learned of the daily tasks and responsibilities of being a Representatives member. Following the meetand-greet, students toured the Governors Mansion where they learned some interesting facts about Floridas history. Once the students returned to the Capitol, they toured the Old Capitol building and participated in a mock legislative debate. Their next stop afforded the opportunity to meet Senator Bill Montford, who invited the students to watch a committee meeting. During the students lunch break, they were treated to an overview of city government by League staff, Mrs. Sharon Berrian. Before the nal stop of the day, students journeyed to the 22nd Floor Overlook. Culminating the educational day was a tour of the Supreme Court building. Students were very interested in learning about Floridas courts system. Mrs. Webb had this to say of the trip, As with years past, students, chaperones and I all had a remarkable time.

Fraud schemes are getting more complex and more inventive all the time, especially with the explosion of computer technology and the social media in the last couple of decades, opening up whole new avenues for fraud scheme operators to snare their victims. Tina DeMotsis, head of the Madison County Sheriff’s Fraud Department, will be speaking to the 55 Plus Club at their final meeting, May 8, 2013 about the kind of fraud schemes that are out there, how they operate, how to avoid becoming a victim and what to do if you fall into a snare. Tina’s father, Louis DeMotsis, was mayor of Lee for 30 years, and Tina graduated from Madison High School. She attended Valdosta State for a degree in Criminal Justice and also studied abroad in England. At present, she is studying forensic criminology. Tina loves her job, so you know her presentation will be enthusiastic as well as educational. Come on out and learn how you can better protect yourself from fraud schemes. The 55 Plus Club’s final meeting will be held at noon, May 8, at the United Methodist Cooperative Ministries Center, 135 SW Dill Avenue (corner of Dill and Colin Kelly Highway) about five miles north of town. The Club meets the second Wednesday of the month from September through May, and is free and open to all seniors 55 and older. There are no registration fees or dues of any kind. Just come on out, bring a friend or two to the UMCM Center, enjoy a free lunch provided by that month’s host church, and hear interesting presentations on topics of interest to the senior community. The May meeting is the last one before the Club takes its summer hiatus, but it will be back again come September. In fact, the September meeting will fall on 9/11.

Path of FaithMadison County Carrier € Wednesday, May 8, 2013 € 3B The PulpitBy Brenda McCormickLee Worship Center God is moving in the midst of his people and people are being Healed and people are being saved. Sometimes, as Christians we have a love for God, and we have a desire for a relationship with Him, but for whatever reason, we completely lack faith. This is seemingly the boat I have found my own self in. It could simply stem from my personality and the fear of being a “bother” to people. It could also be partly from hearing over the years that we should not be selfish in our prayers; always asking, asking, asking from God without much else. Whatever it was, I somehow got to the point where I felt like God was a genie, and I could only get those few wishes, so I’d better make my prayers worthwhile. Really I guess for most of my life, even though I knew that I mattered to God, I just assumed that it was up to me and “fate” (if you will) to resolve things. I mean, who was I to approach the everlasting throne of the Almighty God with my petty little problems? Over the past couple of months, I have started to evolve spiritually and I have begun to realize just how much I’ve been shorting myself. Here I was asking, “Who am I to bother God?” when the real question should be, “Who I am to say God doesn’t care and isn’t powerful enough to handle these little things?” I figured, as a writer, since I have always been good at writing down what is in my head, it might be easier to write down my prayers to God, rather than try to inwardly pray and have to ward off the endless mental distractions. But finally, I just threw up my hands and did what God told us to do — talk to Him like a friend. Not only is God allpowerful, not only does God care... God has a mighty big sense of humor, too. Philippians 4:6 (KJV) Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Luke 12:6-8 (KJV) Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. If you want to see some action in the pulpit and power in the pews come and check us out at Lee Worship Center Church, at 471 S.E.

Years ago my oldest son asked me a question: “What is a saint?” When you’re driving along with a numb mind at day’s end, as I was, that’s not the type of question you are prepared to answer. So I splattered out, “A saint is someone who does what God wants them to do.” My son answered, “If that’s a saint, then why did New Orleans choose that as their football mascot?” I didn’t have an answer for that question either. What is a saint? Well, we often think of saints as being holy or remarkable people who did something extraordinary for God. We think of people we know personally who have influenced us: A grandmother, parent, or mentor whom we easily refer to as saints. Or we think of some poor lady with a worthless husband and an impossible life. She never loses her patience or resolve, so behind her back we talk about how great her reward in heaven will be, and we call her a saint. Thomas Merton, a saintly person in his own right, said: “A saint is not someone who is good. It is someone who has experienced the goodness of God.” Going with Merton’s thought, saints are those have come to know deep, abiding grace. Saints understand that their failures and shortcomings do not disqualify them from receiving God’s love. Saints have learned that their grotesque, self-inflicted wounds, rather than alienating God, bring the divine to bear in their lives in unique and powerful ways. Extraordinary. Influential. Determined. Fallible and damaged. If these are the characteristics of sainthood, then a true saint left the world in recent days: The writer, priest, preacher, alcoholic, divorc and all-round self-proclaimed “ragamuffin” known as Brennan Manning. As a young man Brennan entered the seminary and was ordained to the Franciscan priesthood. He would go on to become a theologian, a campus minister, a spiritual director, the author of nearly two dozen books (his “Ragamuffin Gospel” should be required religious reading), and a practitioner in the way of Jesus, living among the poor as a mason’s assistant, a dishwasher, a voluntary prisoner and a shrimper. Of course, if Manning’s story and life ended there, there would be little doubt about his sainthood. Teaching theology, working among the pitiable and overlooked, self-imprisonment (though innocent) in order to minister to convicts, living among the rough and tumble fisherman of the Gulf Coast – who could be more like Jesus? But Manning’s ministry and life disintegrated into horrific alcoholism. He was homeless and busted, living on a quart of vodka a day, when he finally entered treatment. It took him months to get sober, but he did, only to relapse. When sober again he began writing in earnest, left the priesthood, married Rosalyn, and moved to New Orleans (he was an avid Saints fan), where his marriage would end in divorce, and again he would land in rehab. Manning says that the greatest regret of his life is not his relapses into alcoholism. His greatest regret is “The time I’ve wasted in shame, guilt, remorse, and self-condemnation…I’m not speaking about the appropriate guilt one ought to feel after committing a sin. I’m talking about wallowing in guilt, almost indulging in it, which is basically a kind of idolatry where I am the center of my focus and concern.” He went on to say, “I can waste no more time being shocked or horrified that I have failed. There’s nothing else I can do now but help sinners journey from self-hatred to God’s love, and to help 4B € Madison County Carrier € Wednesday, May 8, 2013Path of Faith A Saint Goes Marching In ...Story continued on 5B...

Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” (Heb. 13:1-2.) “Distributing to the necessity of the saints; given to hospitality.” (Rom. 12:13) They came from 18 different states and two countries, one from the Netherlands, and one from Germany by way of Alaska. Although there were a couple of forty-somethings, the vast majority were retirees. The average age was 61, with the youngest being 48 and the oldest checking in at the tender age of 72. Some, like a few from “Min-ne-SOH-tah” (think Fargo accents) had known each other from before, while others were strangers when they first came together in San Diego on March 8, to begin their 3,000 mile cross-country bike trip – a trip that would take them all the way to St. Augustine, Florida. That’s “bike” as in “bicycle.” On any given day, “Bubba’s Bikers” pedaled anywhere from 50 to 100 miles, with the average being about 64. When they pedaled into Madison, they were on the final week of their journey. In four more days, they would roll into St. Augustine, where they would bid emotional goodbyes to each other and head home...to Maryland, to the Twin Cities, to Seattle, to California, to New Jersey, to Pittsburg, to Indiana, to Utah, to Atlanta, to Iowa, to Connecticut. Along the way, they had acquired nicknames like “Santa” (for his long white beard), “Snowflake” and “Big Ben” (the very tall man from Germany, by way of Alaska). ...Story continued on 7B...

At the United Methodist Cooperative Ministry Center, they pitched their tents in a field alongside the UMCM building and gathered inside for a potluck supper of Southern cooking at its finest, courtesy of the Methodist volunteers, in one of the many outreach ministries of the United Methodist Cooperative Center. After supper, local historian Bill Bunting addressed the group, talking a little about the history of Madison County and answering dozens of questions about the county’s past and present. Then, the expedition’s leader, known fondly as “Bubba” to the group, thanked everyone at UMCM for their gracious hospitality, before he turned the floor over to members of the group. One by one, they stood and introduced themselves to the people of Madison, talked about where they were from and why they had wanted to pedal coast-to-coast. As they spoke, several recurring themes became clear: they had started out as a diverse group from all over the country, but now they were like a large, blended family, who would find it very hard to say goodbye to each other at St. Augustine; they were smitten with the natural beauty of North Florida, especially those who had never seen this part of the country before; and, they were extremely impressed by the graciousness and hospitality that had been shown to throughout their trip, but most especially in Madison. Finally, several of them were very glad they didn’t live in West Texas. Even Santa agreed. “They can keep West Texas!” he laughed. Another thing that impressed many was the number of biking opportunities in Madison County. “You’d be hardpressed to find a more biker-friendly town than this,” Bubba agreed. They also spoke of the national parks they had ridden through and the people they had met along the way. “We did this ride for adventure,” said one couple from Indiana. “I wanted to go cross-country because I’d never ridden in the mountains before,” said another woman. “What a gift that was!” “I’ve been last every day,” said a lady from Iowa. “Because I’ve taken 3,000 pictures and stopped to talk to people along the way.” Barbara from Seattle was on her fourth cross-country trip, after having battled cancer and won. “I’ve been given a second chance at life, and Bubba’s Bikers Story cont. from 6B Greene Publishing, Inc.

A former highway patrolman from Utah said he had taken up serious cycling after retiring from his law enforcement career. Several agreed that they would be joining another cross-country bike trip next year, and would be coming back to Madison for another fantastic potluck supper at UMCM. In Titus 1:8, Paul tells Titus that one of the hallmarks of a leader in the church was that he should be a “lover of hospitality,” to show the love of Christ toward strangers, and their visitors at the UMCM Thursday night definitely felt the graciousness and hospitality that Christians extended to them during they stopover in Madison. One after the other, they spoke of the welcome and graciousness of Madison and its people, especially the kindness of the people of UMCM. John from St. Paul, Minn., put it all into a few simple words. “It’s been a great trip,” he told the hosts of UMCM. “Mostly because of people like you.” Bubba’s Bikers Story cont. from 7B

Priest family of Madison donated all the construction materials (brick, mortar, wood, plaster, etc.) used to create the building that faces the lake today. Because skilled labor in a small town like Madison was in short supply in 1930s, the WPA was brought in to do the construction. Since 1939, the Womans Club, as appointed custodian of the building, and holding a 99 year lease on the building, has kept the structure maintained and insured, used the building for its meetings and regularly rented out other civic clubs such as the Garden Club and Junior Auxiliary. It has also rented to other community groups for meetings, weddings, receptions, dances, family reunions, fundraisers and other events, in accordance with a 1939 lease agreement with the city, which owns the piece of property the building occupies. However, the parking lot next to the club building is owned by the Garden Club and the Womans Club rather than the city; each organization owns half the lot and holds the deed for its half of the property. A few months ago, after numerous instances of rentals that left the building vandalized, including destruction of major plumbing xtures and furniture that had to be completely replaced, the Womans Club decided it could not afford to keep paying large sums of money to repair the damage done after each rental. To protect the building from further destruction, the club agreed not to rent the facility out anymore; however, nearly 75 years out from the original lease, no one realized that this would be considered a violation of the 1939 agreement. The matter surfaced earlier this year at a Madison City Commission, when members of the Womans Club, attending the Commission Meeting regarding another matter, found their building listed on the agenda as an item to be discussed. The City of Madison maintained that the building is a publicly owned building and that the members decision violated the original lease agreement. After several meetings and discussions back and forth, the City Commission has proposed that the City of Madison assume control and responsibility for renting out the building and take care of maintenance and all other expenses. The Womans Club, Garden Club and Junior Auxiliary Club have priority in scheduling its meetings. However, the city wants both the Garden Club and the Womans Club to deed thier half of the parking lot property over to the city; theGarden Club Votes Not To Deed Property Over To CityBy Kristin Finney Greene Publishing, Inc.

Pain is the number one reason people go to their healthcare provider, and pain is usually the result of inammation. Inammation is the bodys natural response to injury or infection, resulting in redness, swelling, warmth, frequently pain and loss of function. Inammation is vital to the healing process of the injured tissue, as the circulatory system and immune system deliver what is necessary to the damaged site to ght infection and repair injured tissues. Controlling swelling at the time of an acute injury can do much to reduce pain, and the easiest ways to do this is to RICE Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. Rest the injured tissue, ice it, put some compression on it by using a clean gauze pad and applying some pressure, and elevate the injured tissue above the heart. However, once the threat of infection is over, the inammation response should stop by itself. Chronic or systemic inammation is an inammatory immune response of prolonged duration that can last weeks, months or years, causing tissue damage, and is therefore a whole other issue entirely. Testing for C-reactive protein (CRP) is useful as a blood marker for inammation, as it is commonly elevated in those that have various chronic inammatory conditions. Chronic inammatory conditions are therefore systemic rather than local in nature, and it is possible that biochemical individuality may determine what kinds of tissues are affected in a particular individual. It is worth noting that primitive cultures that ate their traditional diet without consuming any "white mans food," did not seem to suffer from chronic inammatory diseases. Tuberculosis became a problem only when they began eating white sugar, white our products, canned vegetables and vegetable oil products. Many disease states are as a result of chronic inammation, such as rheumatoid arthritis, arteriosclerosis, inammatory bowel disease including Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis, and tuberculosis for example. Chronic inammation frequently results in chronic pain. Non-steroidal anti-inammatories (NSAIDs like ibuprofen) are the number one over-thecounter drugs sold for inammation and pain, but they are only a band-aid solution they do reduce inammation, but they dont get at the cause of what is creating the inammation in the rst place. Therefore, rather than resolving the condition, the condition is being "managed". Not only that, but NSAIDs are known to result in many adverse gastrointestinal issues including ulcers, GI bleeding, anemia, renal damage and impaired wound healing. There are more deaths due to NSAID use than AIDS annually. Generally our current diets are HIGHLY inammatory, so it is no wonder inammatory diseases are so prevalent. What would an anti-inammatory diet consist of? Eat no rened polyunsaturated vegetable oils (Omega 6 fatty acids promote the Cox 2 pathway, which equals inammation why take Cox 2 inhibitors when you can encourage the Cox 1 anti-inammatory pathway through diet?). Consume low-mercury sh and shellsh frequently, or take up to 4000mg of Omega 3 sh oils a day. Make sure you eat some quality saturated fat (pasture-fed butter, whole milk or cream, eggs, meat or poultry) so that you can actually utilize the Omega 3 fatty acids that you consume, and so you get adequate amounts of vitamin A. Green leafy vegetables are frequently high in magnesium, which may help to relax muscles. Get yourself metabolically typed so you know what ratio of fats, proteins and carbohydrates you should be consuming. Sugar, and rened our products are highly inammatory because of the glycation they cause, and should be avoided at all costs. Avoid caffeine (as if I would give up coffee or soda). Another cause of inammation are the toxins found in processed food, such as MSG, textured vegetable protein, soy lecithin, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, pesticides, colourings, avourings etc. After getting your vitamin D levels checked and if you are low, spend some time in the sun without sunscreen, so that your body can synthesize vitamin D. Sunblock also blocks vitamin D production, and low vitamin D levels are associated with inammation. Do NOT let yourself burn however, as sunburns raise your risk of skin cancer. Getting adequate dark time each night increases melatonin levels which reduces inammation, as melatonin is a free-radical scavenger. There may be some deeper seated causal issues as to why someone may be suffering from chronic inammation, including adrenal fatigue, food sensitivities, parasites, mold and/or heavy metal toxicity which may need to be explored if improving diet, sun exposure and dark time dont work. If, while searching for the cause of your chronic inammation issues, you want some symptom relief without resorting to pharmaceutical drugs, try using tumeric and ginger. Both these spices are natural Cox 2 inhibitors. The herb bosweilla, although not a Cox 2 inhibitor, also has anti-inammatory properties. Kava Kava has muscle relaxation properties, and can be especially benecial when mixed with magnesium. Proteolytic enzymes containing enteric-coated trypsin and chymotrypsin combined with bioavinoids and vitamin C seem to work as well as NSAIDs at controlling pain and swelling, as long as there is no underlying irritation in the GI tract. I told yuh bout Eds uncle Buford, the 80 year-old, who was Sheriff way back. Buford was in the Marines before he was Sheriff. I gured hed be uh good one ta ask how ta honor Memorial Day, so I went ta see eem. He was sitn in uh rocker, on the porch, shelln peas. He told me it was all about war heroes who fought fer the American Dream. He said The American Dream is, If you earn it, you can have it. He said, Its what makes America strong. Said, The Depression was caused by wealthy stock holders that wanted somem fer nothn. Hard, productive work brought America outa the Depression. Now, uh lotta poor folks want somem fer nothn. Seems now theres more folks that want uh handout than wants ta earn their way. He said, Theres some folks that need and deserve help, but I call people, rich er poor, thats able ta do fer themselves, and want somem fer nothn, thieves. We cant all be thieves er there wont be nothn left ta steal. He said, If well go back to the American Dream of earnn our way, this country will go back ta haven plenty. Fer example, If everybody shelled enough peas, we wouldnt have ta worry about gon hungry. So lets honor those who died fer the American Dream by pursuen the American Dream. Thats what Buford told me. I gotta say, that Buford Floyd is uh wise man. Sincerely Yourn Cracola OLustee ( Cracker fer short )www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, May 8, 2013 2A Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS Diaconate National SecurityJoe Boyles Guest ColumnistSt. Marys Episcopal Church will host an ordination ceremony tomorrow evening at 6:30. The Suffragan Bishop of the Diocese of Florida, The Right Reverend Charles L. Keyser will officiate at the ordination service to consecrate yours truly as the Deacon for St. Marys. Let me retrace the steps so youll see how this process has worked. In 1992, the Bishop of the Diocese Frank Cerveny decided that St. Marys was too small to support a full-time priest. Instead, he decided to appoint someone from within the congregation as a local priest and train them accordingly. Bishop Cerveny selected Ben Pfeil for the job. Ben never went to seminary, and instead, read (self-study) for the position. In this capacity, he faithfully served St. Marys for 20 years. Over the past six to seven years, members of the congregation would approach me with the idea of someday replacing Father Ben. I discouraged that thinking. You can say I was in denial, but so was Peter not bad company. I had some doubts and I knew that the bishop would have a large say-so in that decision. In the early summer of 2011, during a phone conversation, the current bishop, John Howard, asked me to meet with him at Camp Weed in early July. He laid out the proposal; I expressed my doubts; he put my concerns to rest; and he asked me to prayerfully consider the job. Two weeks later, I called back and accepted the responsibility. Bens health was declining. I asked him for any texts he might recommend and he provided one book out of his collection for me to study. He also gave me this piece of Scriptural advice: Pay particular attention to the Old testament. That fall, I met with the Commission on Ministry, a Diocesan group that interviews applicants for the ministry. They recommended my approval, and on December 7, 2011, the Bishop made me a postulant for the ministry. Bens illness took him away from St. Marys in mid-February 2012. With the exception of a brief threeweek return in late August, he could no longer function as our vicar. I took over the responsibilities as acting-vicar shortly thereafter. I would meet with Ben regularly to brief him on parish business and ask his advice about various matters. As always, he was an inspiration. In April of 2012, I began to work with the Chief of Chaplains, Jeffrey Mackey from Melrose, on a sevenpart course of study to prepare me for the duties as vicar of St. Marys. I was, in the classic sense, reading for my new duties. Before there were major universities and seminaries, it was common for entry-level applicants to read for their license, which meant apprenticeship under the tutelage of an experienced professional. On the Ohio frontier in the 184os, my great-great grandfather read for his medical license in this manner. Just before I finished my course of self-study in December, Ben Pfeil died at the age of 88. It marked the passing of an era. He faithfully served St. Marys for 64 years, the last 20 as our priest. In Jesus words, recorded by Matthew, Well done, good and faithful servant. With the completion of my studies, Father Mackey certified to Bishop Howard that I had progressed sufficiently to become a candidate for ordination. The bishop approved, and in March, I met with the Standing Committee, an elected body of advisors to the bishop. I passed their muster and my ordination to the office is now scheduled for tomorrow evening. It is important to note that this is an ordination, not for me, but rater, for our church. Bishop Howards offer to me was to become a local priest for St. Marys. I do not foresee it as a stepping-stone for anything larger. Instead, my job is to minister to Madisons Episcopal community, and when my work is complete, turn over the responsibilities to the next person subject to the bishops approval. The process isnt complete with this first ordination. Our Book of Common Prayer states that deacons: assist priests and minister to the poor, sick suffering and helpless. St. Marys will need a priest, so provided it is Gods will, after six months as a Deacon, we will hold a second ordination to designate me as a fully functioning priest. For eight generations since 1859, Madisons Episcopal community has faithfully worshipped and contributed to the well-being of our community. As Madisons oldest church in continuous use, our role, although small, is historically significant. With Gods blessing, our work and faith will continue for another generation, and many more to follow. With that, I would like to close this simple story by inviting you to tomorrows ordination and confer Gods Blessing on each of you.

The ASK group of Madison hosted a run and walk event on April 13 at Lanier Field. The event raised money to help send the MAP and ASK children to a camp at Cherry Lake this summer that is specically designed to meet Autistic needs. The day began at 8 a.m. with registration opening for the 5K walk/run. The group was asking for donations in place of a registration fee. There was then a kids fun run held at 8:45 a.m. The cost to enter was $1 per child. At 9 a.m. the 5K run/walk began. Then following the run/walk was a free Zumba class. There was also a kids puzzle pieces obstacle course. The ASK group of Madison is hoping to do another run/walk event next year. Leslie McLeod, of the Madison ASK and MAP groups said of the event, We want to thank everyone who made it a huge success. Because of this walk, we are able to not only send all of our members to camp, but we are able to give scholarships to other children with autism/special needs so they can have the same experience. This will be a typical 4-H inclusive overnight camp experience targeting skill sets for autistic and special needs youth. Each and every person who donated and volunteered made a huge impact on these kids. The children can go to camp, like all the other kids. They will make memories, happy ones. The children will benet from a structured and compassionate small group environment. They will build personal and social condence and make lasting friendships. These kids will have this opportunity, because of everyone who supported them. On behalf of MAP, I would like to thank everyone for their support. It means a lot to the parents of these children. We feel so blessed to have such a great community.ASK Walk A Huge Success Photo submitted Residents run/walk to help raise money for the ASK group of Madison.

www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, May 8, 2013 Madison County Carrier 7A W oe Teachers Of Madison County And Salute Them During Teacher Appreciation Week.Bart AlfordSchool Board Member District 5 By Kristin Finney Greene Publishing, Inc. Helen Calidicott once said, Teachers, I believe, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts affect the fate of the earth. During National Teacher Appreciation Week, and throughout the year, it is important to remember the hard work that teachers perform, and the responsibility that they hold. Teachers are caregivers to more children than many people would ever hope to have. They are disciplinarians to more children than any parent could ever imagine. They spend their days watching their students grow and learn, all the while holding their hand through this crazy ride called life. All of this, and very rarely are they thanked or honored for all of their hard work. Monday, May 6, through Friday, May 10, marks the 2013 Teacher Appreciation Week. During Teacher Appreciation Week, everyone is invited to thank their teachers, their childrens teachers and their friends that are teachers for the service that they offer the world. However, dont let this recognition stop on Friday. Let your thanks be known throughout the year. There are many ways to honor a teacher during this week, and the rest of the year. Some examples include: a simple note thanking them for their hard work and dedication, a hand drawn picture by your child, gift cards to local restaurants or stores, gift baskets filled with fruits and treats and much more. Teachers are the backbone of society. They hold the fate of the nation in their hands. They are true heroes and heroines for the hard work that they perform every day. Few people would want to perform the daily tasks that teachers face. They must be leaders to their classrooms, while giving the children room to grow. They must maintain control of their classrooms, against the distractions of 20+ students. Some would call teachers crazy for choosing to put themselves in these situations. Some would say that they are crazy to perform such duties with so little recognition. However, to a teacher, this is all just the price they must pay to make the difference they hope to make in their students lives. Dont let your appreciation end this week. Let your appreciation be shown every day of the year. And most importantly, remember to thank a teacher. Honoring Educators During National Teacher Appreciation Week

Gemmill, III, as the rst principal of James Madison Preparatory High School. The son of a career U.S. Air Force ofcer, Bill has spent nearly 25 years devoted to education as a teacher, coach, administrator, and educator advocate. Much of his energy has focused on instilling the importance of ethics in his students, particularly the values of integrity and character. He believes that owning a skill is a strength that leads to success. Thus, he supports the continuous evolution of education to provide students the opportunities to develop their skills and interests fully. A graduate of Trevecca Nazarene University with a BS in Management and M.Ed. in Educational Leadership, Bill worked in Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools from 1992-2010. He specialized in teaching Computer-Aided Drafting and Design and implemented the ACE (Architectural, Construction, and Engineering) Program at two high schools. He served as Executive Principal of Cohn Adult High School, John Overton High School, and Nashvilles Middle College High School, respectively, before retiring from MNPS. After retiring, he became the Membership and Media Director for Professional Educators of Tennessee, where he managed membership recruitment & retention, advised educators, represented PET at the state legislature, and coordinated member and public relations activities. Serving high school students has always been Bills passion. He looks forward to bringing this passion to JMPHS to help the school grow, build relationships with the community, and congratulate the rst graduating class in 2017. He believes that JMPHS will provide the stimulus necessary to challenge young people to excel. He states, Theres something about all the possibilities for opportunity at JMPHS that is exciting. I wish that there had been such an opportunity when I went to high school myself. As for the JMPHS students, he says, The more students the merrier. I love em all, and they cant do a thing about it! Bill and his wife, Judy, have four children, Billy, Allison, Eric, and Ashley, and three grandchildren. Billy, Allison, and Eric are all married. Their daughter, Ashley, succumbed to cancer in 2008 after being diagnosed when she was a high school senior six years earlier. A courageous young woman, Ashley continues to provide spiritual inspiration to her parents. JMPHS Welcomes Bill Gemmill As First PrincipalAbstinence Is My S.W.A.G. Coming to MCHS

www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, May 8, 2013 14A Madison County CarrierSCHOOL Madison Academy fth grade students and their parents anxiously wait for the time to come each school year for the Florida Capitol tour and Civics Education eld trip, which occurs each spring. This year that day came on April 3, 2013, when 15 students from Mrs. Jessica Webbs class and seven adult chaperones were guests of the Florida League of Cities in Tallahassee. This particular trip came on the dawning of the 500th year celebration of Floridas discovery, making it an extra special occasion. The day also marked the mid-point of the Legislative Session, which students had been learning about and watching (live streaming) during the previous weeks. Upon arriving in Tallahassee, students were presented with an action-packed day in Floridas Capital City. First, they met their District 10 House of Representatives member, Halsey Beshears, where they learned of the daily tasks and responsibilities of being a Representatives member. Following the meetand-greet, students toured the Governors Mansion where they learned some interesting facts about Floridas history. Once the students returned to the Capitol, they toured the Old Capitol building and participated in a mock legislative debate. Their next stop afforded the opportunity to meet Senator Bill Montford, who invited the students to watch a committee meeting. During the students lunch break, they were treated to an overview of city government by League staff, Mrs. Sharon Berrian. Before the nal stop of the day, students journeyed to the 22nd Floor Overlook. Culminating the educational day was a tour of the Supreme Court building. Students were very interested in learning about Floridas courts system. Mrs. Webb had this to say of the trip, As with years past, students, chaperones and I all had a remarkable time. Each year our tour gets better and better; our students learn so much! We are grateful for Mrs. Berrians continued service to our school, and we thank everyone involved who makes this happen year-after-year for us. When asked their favorite part of the day, the students repliedALL OF IT!

2B € Madison County Carrier € Wednesday, May 8, 2013 Path of Faith By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. Fraud schemes are getting more complex and more inventive all the time, especially with the explosion of computer technology and the social media in the last couple of decades, opening up whole new avenues for fraud scheme operators to snare their victims. Tina DeMotsis, head of the Madison County Sheriff’s Fraud Department, will be speaking to the 55 Plus Club at their final meeting, May 8, 2013 about the kind of fraud schemes that are out there, how they operate, how to avoid becoming a victim and what to do if you fall into a snare. Tina’s father, Louis DeMotsis, was mayor of Lee for 30 years, and Tina graduated from Madison High School. She attended Valdosta State for a degree in Criminal Justice and also studied abroad in England. At present, she is studying forensic criminology. Tina loves her job, so you know her presentation will be enthusiastic as well as educational. Come on out and learn how you can better protect yourself from fraud schemes. The 55 Plus Club’s final meeting will be held at noon, May 8, at the United Methodist Cooperative Ministries Center, 135 SW Dill Avenue (corner of Dill and Colin Kelly Highway) about five miles north of town. The Club meets the second Wednesday of the month from September through May, and is free and open to all seniors 55 and older. There are no registration fees or dues of any kind. Just come on out, bring a friend or two to the UMCM Center, enjoy a free lunch provided by that month’s host church, and hear interesting presentations on topics of interest to the senior community. The May meeting is the last one before the Club takes its summer hiatus, but it will be back again come September. In fact, the September meeting will fall on 9/11.

Path of FaithMadison County Carrier € Wednesday, May 8, 2013 € 3B The PulpitBy Brenda McCormickLee Worship Center God is moving in the midst of his people and people are being Healed and people are being saved. Sometimes, as Christians we have a love for God, and we have a desire for a relationship with Him, but for whatever reason, we completely lack faith. This is seemingly the boat I have found my own self in. It could simply stem from my personality and the fear of being a “bother” to people. It could also be partly from hearing over the years that we should not be selfish in our prayers; always asking, asking, asking from God without much else. Whatever it was, I somehow got to the point where I felt like God was a genie, and I could only get those few wishes, so I’d better make my prayers worthwhile. Really I guess for most of my life, even though I knew that I mattered to God, I just assumed that it was up to me and “fate” (if you will) to resolve things. I mean, who was I to approach the everlasting throne of the Almighty God with my petty little problems? Over the past couple of months, I have started to evolve spiritually and I have begun to realize just how much I’ve been shorting myself. Here I was asking, “Who am I to bother God?” when the real question should be, “Who I am to say God doesn’t care and isn’t powerful enough to handle these little things?” I figured, as a writer, since I have always been good at writing down what is in my head, it might be easier to write down my prayers to God, rather than try to inwardly pray and have to ward off the endless mental distractions. But finally, I just threw up my hands and did what God told us to do — talk to Him like a friend. Not only is God allpowerful, not only does God care... God has a mighty big sense of humor, too. Philippians 4:6 (KJV) Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Luke 12:6-8 (KJV) Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. If you want to see some action in the pulpit and power in the pews come and check us out at Lee Worship Center Church, at 471 S.E. Magnolia Drive Lee, Fl. Pastor Richard Sauls’ phone number is 919-745-0225.

Years ago my oldest son asked me a question: “What is a saint?” When you’re driving along with a numb mind at day’s end, as I was, that’s not the type of question you are prepared to answer. So I splattered out, “A saint is someone who does what God wants them to do.” My son answered, “If that’s a saint, then why did New Orleans choose that as their football mascot?” I didn’t have an answer for that question either. What is a saint? Well, we often think of saints as being holy or remarkable people who did something extraordinary for God. We think of people we know personally who have influenced us: A grandmother, parent, or mentor whom we easily refer to as saints. Or we think of some poor lady with a worthless husband and an impossible life. She never loses her patience or resolve, so behind her back we talk about how great her reward in heaven will be, and we call her a saint. Thomas Merton, a saintly person in his own right, said: “A saint is not someone who is good. It is someone who has experienced the goodness of God.” Going with Merton’s thought, saints are those have come to know deep, abiding grace. Saints understand that their failures and shortcomings do not disqualify them from receiving God’s love. Saints have learned that their grotesque, self-inflicted wounds, rather than alienating God, bring the divine to bear in their lives in unique and powerful ways. Extraordinary. Influential. Determined. Fallible and damaged. If these are the characteristics of sainthood, then a true saint left the world in recent days: The writer, priest, preacher, alcoholic, divorc and all-round self-proclaimed “ragamuffin” known as Brennan Manning. As a young man Brennan entered the seminary and was ordained to the Franciscan priesthood. He would go on to become a theologian, a campus minister, a spiritual director, the author of nearly two dozen books (his “Ragamuffin Gospel” should be required religious reading), and a practitioner in the way of Jesus, living among the poor as a mason’s assistant, a dishwasher, a voluntary prisoner and a shrimper. Of course, if Manning’s story and life ended there, there would be little doubt about his sainthood. Teaching theology, working among the pitiable and overlooked, self-imprisonment (though innocent) in order to minister to convicts, living among the rough and tumble fisherman of the Gulf Coast – who could be more like Jesus? But Manning’s ministry and life disintegrated into horrific alcoholism. He was homeless and busted, living on a quart of vodka a day, when he finally entered treatment. It took him months to get sober, but he did, only to relapse. When sober again he began writing in earnest, left the priesthood, married Rosalyn, and moved to New Orleans (he was an avid Saints fan), where his marriage would end in divorce, and again he would land in rehab. Manning says that the greatest regret of his life is not his relapses into alcoholism. His greatest regret is “The time I’ve wasted in shame, guilt, remorse, and self-condemnation…I’m not speaking about the appropriate guilt one ought to feel after committing a sin. I’m talking about wallowing in guilt, almost indulging in it, which is basically a kind of idolatry where I am the center of my focus and concern.” He went on to say, “I can waste no more time being shocked or horrified that I have failed. There’s nothing else I can do now but help sinners journey from self-hatred to God’s love, and to help 4B € Madison County Carrier € Wednesday, May 8, 2013Path of Faith A Saint Goes Marching In ...Story continued on 5B...

And while I only knew him through his words, he did the same for me. So from one ragamuffin to another, “Thank you, Brennan.

6B € Madison County Carrier € Wednesday, May 8, 2013Path of Faith Bubbas Bikers Meet Christian Hospitality At UMCM By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. “Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” (Heb. 13:1-2.) “Distributing to the necessity of the saints; given to hospitality.” (Rom. 12:13) They came from 18 different states and two countries, one from the Netherlands, and one from Germany by way of Alaska. Although there were a couple of forty-somethings, the vast majority were retirees. The average age was 61, with the youngest being 48 and the oldest checking in at the tender age of 72. Some, like a few from “Min-ne-SOH-tah” (think Fargo accents) had known each other from before, while others were strangers when they first came together in San Diego on March 8, to begin their 3,000 mile cross-country bike trip – a trip that would take them all the way to St. Augustine, Florida. That’s “bike” as in “bicycle.” On any given day, “Bubba’s Bikers” pedaled anywhere from 50 to 100 miles, with the average being about 64. When they pedaled into Madison, they were on the final week of their journey. In four more days, they would roll into St. Augustine, where they would bid emotional goodbyes to each other and head home...to Maryland, to the Twin Cities, to Seattle, to California, to New Jersey, to Pittsburg, to Indiana, to Utah, to Atlanta, to Iowa, to Connecticut. Along the way, they had acquired nicknames like “Santa” (for his long white beard), “Snowflake” and “Big Ben” (the very tall man from Germany, by way of Alaska). ...Story continued on 7B...

At the United Methodist Cooperative Ministry Center, they pitched their tents in a field alongside the UMCM building and gathered inside for a potluck supper of Southern cooking at its finest, courtesy of the Methodist volunteers, in one of the many outreach ministries of the United Methodist Cooperative Center. After supper, local historian Bill Bunting addressed the group, talking a little about the history of Madison County and answering dozens of questions about the county’s past and present. Then, the expedition’s leader, known fondly as “Bubba” to the group, thanked everyone at UMCM for their gracious hospitality, before he turned the floor over to members of the group. One by one, they stood and introduced themselves to the people of Madison, talked about where they were from and why they had wanted to pedal coast-to-coast. As they spoke, several recurring themes became clear: they had started out as a diverse group from all over the country, but now they were like a large, blended family, who would find it very hard to say goodbye to each other at St. Augustine; they were smitten with the natural beauty of North Florida, especially those who had never seen this part of the country before; and, they were extremely impressed by the graciousness and hospitality that had been shown to throughout their trip, but most especially in Madison. Finally, several of them were very glad they didn’t live in West Texas. Even Santa agreed. “They can keep West Texas!” he laughed. Another thing that impressed many was the number of biking opportunities in Madison County. “You’d be hardpressed to find a more biker-friendly town than this,” Bubba agreed. They also spoke of the national parks they had ridden through and the people they had met along the way. “We did this ride for adventure,” said one couple from Indiana. “I wanted to go cross-country because I’d never ridden in the mountains before,” said another woman. “What a gift that was!” “I’ve been last every day,” said a lady from Iowa. “Because I’ve taken 3,000 pictures and stopped to talk to people along the way.” Barbara from Seattle was on her fourth cross-country trip, after having battled cancer and won. “I’ve been given a second chance at life, and Bubba’s Bikers Story cont. from 6B Greene Publishing, Inc.

A former highway patrolman from Utah said he had taken up serious cycling after retiring from his law enforcement career. Several agreed that they would be joining another cross-country bike trip next year, and would be coming back to Madison for another fantastic potluck supper at UMCM. In Titus 1:8, Paul tells Titus that one of the hallmarks of a leader in the church was that he should be a “lover of hospitality,” to show the love of Christ toward strangers, and their visitors at the UMCM Thursday night definitely felt the graciousness and hospitality that Christians extended to them during they stopover in Madison. One after the other, they spoke of the welcome and graciousness of Madison and its people, especially the kindness of the people of UMCM. John from St. Paul, Minn., put it all into a few simple words. “It’s been a great trip,” he told the hosts of UMCM. “Mostly because of people like you.” Bubba’s Bikers Story cont. from 7B
