By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc. A state hearing ofce recommended on Monday, June 10, that the Florida Highway Patrol reinstate Trooper Charles Swindle, who was terminated after issuing a citation for not having an insurance card to State Rep. Charles McBurney, of Jacksonville. McBurney led a complaint with Swindle's superiors, which led to Swindle being removed from the force. Hearing ofcer Gregg Morton acknowledged in the ruling (which was 22 pages long) that FHP has an unwritten rule, which tells state troopers to give lawmakers breaks. Camera footage of the trafc stop taken from Swindle's vehicle shows the trooper telling the legislator that he is writing him a $10 citation for not having an insurance card instead of a $251 ticket for excessive speed. Morton's order reads "The professional courtesy for legislators is discussed at the training academy for new troopers, is reinforced by supervisors, and is informally discussed among other employees." Morton did say that the ticket being written to McBurney was against FHP policy but that Swindle did not deserve to be terminated for writing it. Morton recommended that Swindle receive back pay for time lost and that he be reinstated after a three-week suspension without pay. Wed.

Cpl. Mike Maurice along with Sgt. Dennis Pitts responded to Mango. As Cpl. Maurice was traveling down Mango he passed a Dodge Dakota truck headed toward US 90. Cpl. Maurice turned around to make contact with the truck; however, the driver later identied as Eric Duane Kirkland, 36, of Jacksonville sped off at a high rate of speed. Cpl. Maurice initiated pursuit and informed Sgt. Pitts that the Dodge was headed toward US 90. Sgt. Pitts deployed spike strips in attempt to terminate the pursuit but was unsuccessful as Kirkland was able to avoid the spikes. Once the pursuit reached US 90, Kirkland turned west and continued to ee at more than 100 miles per hour. The pursuit entered the Town of Lee and Kirkland turned south onto CR 255 toward Interstate 10. Other responding deputies were approaching the pursuit when Kirkland decided to pull over. Deputies conducted a felony takedown and Kirkland was arrested without further incident. A search of the truck located an AR 10 .308 caliber assault rie on the front seat next to where Kirkland had been sitting. The rie was fully loaded and chambered with the safety off. Several extra rounds of ammunition were also recovered. During further investigation it was learned that Kirkland had met a female via the Internet who lived in the area of Mango. Kirkland admitted that he drove from Jacksonville to "terrorize" the female. Deputies identied the female and located more than 30 spent .308 rounds in the dirt road near her residence. It did not appear that the home was struck by any bullets. Kirkland was charged with aggravated stalking, eeing and eluding, use of a rearm during the commission of a felony and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bud Leonard, of the Wildwings Kennel located south of I-10, asked the County Commission for a letter of approval and support to bring the Bird Dog Jamboree to Madison in March of 2014. "We're good to go, otherwise," he said. The Board of Directors for the Jamboree, hailing from 15 states across the country, is up for the challenge of bringing the event here, Leonard told the commissioners. All they needed was a letter indicating the backing of the community. The Jamboree includes both fun and sanctioned trials for the dogs, including fetch challenges, water retrieval and birddog races. Yogi Bear Campground plans to host at least part of the event, with the rest taking place on the Wildwings Kennel property. 100 percent of the proceeds raised from Birddog Jamboree Events goes to birddog rescues. Last year, over 6,000 birddogs were rescued, and about six or seven of those were retrained and are now working as guide dogs. If all goes well, Leonard added, this could become an annual event for Madison. The commission voted unanimously to send the letter of approval.Birddog Jamboree Wants to Come to MadisonBud Leonard addresses the County Commission regarding the Birddog Jamboree.

Elesta Pritchett, former Mayor of Greeneville, spoke to the Town Council at their June 10 meeting to thank the Public Works Department, headed up by J.C. Fead, for all the work they did to help get the boyhood home of music legend Ray Charles "camera-ready" for the lm crews of The Florida Channel. The modest home had been restored and dedicated in September of 2009, and open for tours since then, but the house needed a little sprucing up. Pritchett read a letter of gratitude, listing all the work Fead and his team had done to make the place look nice for the television crew, including planting owers in the owerbeds, replacing some steps on the porch, and thoroughly cleaning up the yard. "I was so impressed, I didn't what to do," she said, smiling. The Florida Channel, operating out of Tallahassee, is a public television channel that broadcasts the legislative session live every year, along with several news shows about Florida politics, current events and documentaries about signicant historical gures in the state's history.

Breast cancer is far more common in industrialized countries than in 3rd world countries, and far more common in cities than in less densely populated regions. Women in certain professions (like nursing) are at greater risk. But this risk factor is easily controllable, if you know about it. We probably all know someone who has either breast or prostate cancer, as they are the most commonly diagnosed cancers in females and males respectively Although family history is an uncontrollable risk factor in both cancers, there are many other risk factors that we can control, and may determine whether or not cancer develops. There is more and more evidence linking articial evening and night-time light to the growth of cancer cells. The risk of breast cancer is ve times higher in industrial nations lit with electric lights than in the underdeveloped countries of the world. A study done in 2001 by the Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Centre in Seattle found that women who worked the graveyard shift had a 60% greater risk of getting breast cancer than those that did not. Women that regularly sleep nine hours a night have less than a third the cancer rates of those that regularly sleep seven, according to a Finnish study published in Cancer Research in 2005. Interestingly, it does not seem to be the sleep that matters, but rather the hours spent in darkness. Melatonin is the immune hormone that is secreted in darkness. Melatonin is supposed to be at its peak between 1 and 2am, and if we are still up with the lights on at that time, very little or no melatonin will be secreted. Melatonin seems to stop cancer cells cold, and puts them to sleep for the night. Breast cancer grows in the presence of light, because of the absence of melatonin. In a very interesting study published in Dec. of 2005, rats that were implanted with human breast cancer were either given melatonin rich blood from women that had been in complete darkness for 2 hours, or blood from women that were exposed to bright light. The tumors in the rats that were given blood with the lowest melatonin concentrations (the blood that came from women exposed to light) multiplied the fastest. Melatonin seems to block the ability of cancer cells to metabolize linoleic acid, the omega 6 fatty acid that is found in vegetable oils, thereby preventing the cancer cells from dividing. Melatonin also seems to have a role in controlling the excess production of estrogen and estradiol, another factor in the growth of breast cancer. The recent statistics that have come out have indicated a big drop in rates of breast cancer, and it is believed that this drop was due to the reduced use of hormone replacement therapy in 2002, solidifying the theory that high estrogen levels play a roll in developing breast and also cervical cancer. Estrogen dominance may also occur as a result of chronically high insulin levels, so decrease your sugar and starchy carbohydrates if there is breast cancer in your family, and get your dark time, as melatonin also seems to have a role in controlling the excess production of estrogen and estradiol. It is interesting to note that decreased melatonin levels due to too little dark time results in increased levels of cortisol, which in turn translates into higher insulin levels, which leads to problems with type 2 diabetes and heart disease in addition to cancer. So, the bottom line is that getting enough hours in complete darkness is vital to hormone regulation, which is vital to optimal health. Although there is less research with regard to the protective effects of melatonin on prostate cancer, the research that is there certainly does support the hypothesis, and more research is ongoing. Melatonin seems to be protective in some other cancers as well, such as skin cancer. The message for us all? Get to bed early enough that you will get 9 hours of dark time, and use a red night light if you need to use the bathroom in the night. If going to bed early on a regular basis is impossible for you, get black-out drapes and make sure you get you can sleep in long enough in the morning to get your nine hours of dark time. Another super useful trick is to put on your sun glasses at 10pm use yellow lenses that cut out all blue light, as it is the blue light that is problematic. This would be a great strategy if you are working night shifts. It may also make it easier to fall asleep when you nally do make it to bed. Reducing your consumption of omega 6 fatty acids vegetable oils like soy, canola, sunower etc, grain-fed beef etc., and increase omega 3 intake from sh oils in order to improve the omega 6 to omega 3 ratio may also assist in reducing your risk of getting cancer.

In late 1942 at the age of 22, he purchased his rst piece of farm land near his parent's home in neighboring Suwannee County Eight years later as he tried to make the land productive despite being an absentee landowner, he came up with the idea of planting pine seedlings and watching them mature into productive forests. For more than sixty years now, we have been planting pine seedlings on timber tracts which have now expanded to eight in three North Florida counties. I began to pay attention to news reports on the problem of diminishing forests maybe 15 years ago. The alarmists were concerned about adverse environmental effects of deforestation including global warming. Woops, there I go again. I'm no longer supposed to use the term global warming.' The new politically correct term is climate change.' My bad. My problem was that I wasn't seeing what the environmentalists were warning us about. For a century now, there has been no net loss of forest lands in the United States and today we're growing far more trees than before thanks to many factors: market-driven forces; intensive forestry; genetic improvements, etc. This is especially true in the Southeast where more than two-thirds of all timberlands are in the hands of private landowners like my family Let me give you a current example. Last fall, we harvested 120 acres of 14 year old slash pines. We just nished chipping the leftover hardwoods which will be used as fuel in nearby plant boilers. Currently a cleanup crew is working to clear the acreage of stumps and pile the residue for burning. Early in the fall, we'll spray a herbicide mixture from the air to control competing species before planting in the winter. We have on order with Superior Trees nursery in Lee 87 thousand slash pine seedlings to reforest the 120 acre tract. About a year after the logging, the next crop will be in the ground and beginning to grow. This economic activity is taking place continually all across our region between mills, loggers, nurseries, landowners, planters, etc. The most visible evidence of this is all the logging trucks you see on our highways. There is plenty of deforestation' occurring followed by a lot of work and expense to sew the next crop and be even more productive. Landowners are united in the practice of sustainable forestry always planning and preparing for the next crop of trees. There are a lot of folks who don't see forestry as a component of farming or agriculture. Since agriculture is the science of growing food and ber, and wood cellulose is an extremely important ber for many uses, it certainly is an agricultural activity A friend of mine once complained when he saw a timber tract being clearcut. My response you don't complain when you see a farmer clearcut his corn or soybeans. It's the same thing; only our crop rotation is much longer than conventional row crops. The economic chain that links the forestry business begins with landowners and includes nurseries, planters, loggers and mills. Also, site preparedness activities (mechanical and chemical) are important activities to intensive forestry Throw in ancillary activities like pine straw and hunting and you have a thriving, interconnected, multi-layered business. The species that is particular to our brand of forestry is the southern yellow pine, namely loblolly slash and longleaf. You will see these varieties growing throughout our region. A scientic inspection of the soil will tell which variety is best suited to a site. Pine trees are one of nature's most efcient methods of carbon storage and the photosynthesis process produces incredible volumes of oxygen. Trees grow most places on earth, but they particularly like humid, warm environments where the growing season is long 6-7 months. That's why they do particularly well in the southeastern US. There is plenty of wood grown in the Pacic Northwest and Canada, but it takes longer to grow the same wood volume that we turn out. The forests are particularly dense in the equatorial band around the earth where there is ample rainfall. In poor nations like Haiti where wood is used as a fuel, trees barely begin to grow when they are cut down to heat homes and cook food. Currently Northern Europe has become a steady customer for wood grown in the southeastern US and they're using it for fuel. A new wood pellet factory in Waycross, GA uses pine roundwood grown within a hundred miles to manufacture pellets which are shipped across the Atlantic destined for wood heating stoves in Germany and Denmark. It seems the green' movement is ne with burning wood as opposed to fossil fuels, but since their forests are limited and protected, they're ne with using our more plentiful wood. That's ne with me more customers, more prots. How long this market will last and how large it will grow is anybody's guess. I'm not sure if deforestation is actually a problem or simply environmental hype, but I do know that it isn't a problem where we live. We're growing plenty of trees, then cutting them down and replanting, because there is an economic incentive to do so. Deforestation BAILEY MONUMENT CO 740252

By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. The evening of the Hurricane Preparedness Expo (Monday June 3), the skies to the east of town were dark with storm clouds. Expo Emcee Mike McCall mentioned that there was some trouble brewing in the Gulf, but as of that time, it was just a group of thunderstorms with no real organization. Two days later, the rst named storm of the 2013 Hurricane Season, Tropical Storm Andrea, formed out that disturbance, stomping around in the Gulf and causing trouble in the form of rough surf in several Gulf Coast states. Thursday, it spawned several tornadoes as it moved up the west coast of Florida and made landfall in the Big Bend area, passing through Madison with gusty winds and heavy rainfall. In retrospect, it was a most apt underlining of the Expo's main theme, one that speakers touched upon throughout the evening: GET A PLAN. Bryan Koon of the Florida Division of Emergency Management said that the biggest part of the evening's success would be if everyone in the audience took to heart the message about having a plan, and shared it with friends and neighbors at Wednesday night church services, at softball games, or any other venue where crowds of people gather together in groups. People need to be prepared ahead of time for an emergency, he said, because once storms are on the radar and tracking toward Florida, it takes longer to get everything ready; chances are, everyone else who wasn't prepared ahead of time will be running around trying to get ready as well. Even WalMart can run short of emergency supplies when a lot of people start buying all at once. The other factor is that meteorology is still a fairly young science, and while knowledge and forecasting abilities improve each year, there are several factors that can come into play when predicting a storm's path. Of the four or ve major groups (including the National Weather Service) that issue hurricane season predictions each year, the general consensus is that we are in an active hurricane cycle that might form 15 to 20 storms, and of those, nine or ten might become hurricanes. What remains to be seen is what will end up actually forming, where it will form and what factors will drive it along its course. North Florida has a high probability of being hit by a hurricane in any given year. "As for getting ready, this is the right time to do that," said Koon. How It Will Impact Madison Wind: The southwest quadrant of a hurricane is the most dangerous, with the highest wind speeds. If the hurricane makes landfall in the Big Bend, this quadrant won't be that far away from the Gulf that fuels it, and the little slice of land that is Taylor County won't slow it down that much. Hurricanes can be several hundred miles across, spreading dangerously high winds over a wide swath. You don't have to be close to the eye to sustain heavy damage. Flash Floods: Depending on the amount of rain dumped on the area in only a few hours, ash oods can be a problem. Madison County barely squeaked by this danger with Tropical Storm Debby last year. Although the heavy rainfall caused ooding, Madison didn't get nearly as much rain as some of its neighboring counties, which saw up to 28 inches of rain. Madison is also bordering on two fairly sizable rivers, the Withlacoochie and the Suwannee, and these rivers ooded for several days after Debby passed through. Think about where your house or business is in relation to ood plains. Flooding often takes several days to abate, and river ooding may not crest until after the storm has passed through. Even if your house is on an elevated bit of land, what about the surrounding roads? Will they be underwater? What will the road between you and the grocery store, or the doctor's ofce or your pet's veterinarian look like for the next few days? If it's underwater for several days, as many Suwannee County roads were after Debby, will you have enough supplies on hand to make it through? If you have horses and cows in addition to the usual cats or dogs, do you know whether or not the elds around your house are in a ood zone? Do you have a plan for moving your animals if necessary? If you don't know whether or not you're in a ood zone, check with the Planning and Zoning Board to nd out. Communication: How will you communicate? Cell phone towers can sustain damage in a storm, and service can be disrupted. The Internet can also go down for several hours or even several days, depending on how fast the damage can be repaired. One of the results of the digital age is that so much of our information, including telephone numbers of friends, family members, doctors' ofces, insurance companies and law enforcement, is stored electronically, on cell phones and smart phones. Many times, people have no idea what their friends' and family members' telephone numbers are, because they're so used to bringing up a photo on a smart phone to make a call. It almost seems like a step backward in the digital age, but in an emergency, low-tech rules. If you still have a landline phone in your house, hang onto to it. Write down all your important phone numbers and keep a hard copy list near your landline phone. The good old print phone directory is a bonus in this instance as well, if you haven't thrown yours out already. Power: You can prob ably count on the power to go out during a storm, but there's no way of knowing how long it will stay out. Battery-powered ashlights and lanterns and plenty of extra batteries for everything are essential. If you are lucky enough to still have cell phone service after the power has gone out, you'll need to recharge those phones if the power stays out for several days. Make sure all of your cell phones have car chargers, and that you know where to nd them. The glove box in your car is the best place to keep them. Gathering Supplies Food: Have enough non-perishable or non-refrigerated food on hand for at least 72 hours. Since the power will most likely be out, it should be food that doesn't need cooking. Don't forget about pet food and livestock food. Water: Have one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days. Again, don't forget about pets and livestock. Medication: Have a three-day supply of any prescription medications you or you family may need, as well as OTC medications like ibuprofen. Don't forget your pets' prescriptions. Have a standard rst aid kit on hand to treat any injuries that may occur. Ice and Ice Chests: Ice is one of those items you can grab a day or two before the storm is due, but it's also something that will disappear the fastest from the grocery store. Don't wait until the very last minute. Bags of ice can be stored a day or two in your freezer until you need them. Clothes: After surviving the storm, there's the clean-up period. You'll need jeans and work shirts, galoshes or boots, and work gloves. Don't count on being able to get these items, especially work boots and gloves, at local stores after the storm blows through. Cash: Even if you can get to a store afterward, it may be unable to run your credit or debit card. Full Gas Tank: If the power is out, gas pumps won't operate. Fill the tanks in all your vehicles. If individuals do as much as they can beforehand, they have a much better chance of surviving the storm and not being absolutely miserable afterwards as they work to recover from the aftermath. In the next report on the Hurricane Preparedness Expo, we'll look at what small business owners need to think about when making plans for a storm. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, June 12, 2013Madison County Carrier € 5 AAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY Tina DeMotsis: Identity Theft Still a Major Concern, PART IIIBy Lynette Norris Greene Publication, Inc. Tina DeMotsis heads up the Fraud Division of the Madison County Sheriff's Ofce, and recently, she addressed the 55 Plus Club about the topic of identity theft. In Part I, we looked at some of the known ways thieves manage to steal your personal information. In Part II, we looked at ways people can safeguard their information. Part III, the nal report, advises what to do if your identity is stolen. You've carefully shredded all your old documents and guarded your account numbers and other personal information like gold; yet one day, your credit card is declined for no reason, or a check bounces when you know there's no way that should happen. You call your credit card company (or they call you) and discover it's been maxed out with purchases you didn't make. You go to your bank and nd your checking account overdrawn with checks you didn't write. Or, you get an invoice from a company you never heard of, or a statement for a hefty sum of money for charges you didn't make from your credit card company, or maybe you get a bill from a credit card you've never even owned. Maybe you start to get phone calls from creditors about accounts that have been opened and maxed out in your name, and this is the rst you've heard of it. Your heart drops like a rock in a pond as you realize your identity has been stolen. For some people, it's an overwhelming sense of panic. Their security has been breeched and they didn't even realize it, and now creditors are demanding money. For others, it's equal parts fear and anger. Who are these identity thieves, these invisible bottom feeders, and how did they manage to latch onto you? How dare they so brazenly take over your life like that! Immediately after the realization of what has happened, the real work begins. The rst step is to immediately contact your local law enforcement agency to le a report. In Madison County, that's the Madison County Sheriff's Ofce at (850) 973-4001. Ask for the Fraud Division. You should also know that under Florida law, you have a choice of where to le your report: either in the county where the fraud occurred, or the county you live in. For example, assuming you live in Madison County, and you get phone calls from a Tallahassee store about a charge run up in your name, you can le your report in Leon County or in Madison County. When you go to le your report, bring as much documentation as you can gather, such as account numbers of the affected accounts, debt collection reports, phone numbers of agencies that have contacted you, any evidence of fraudulent activity on your account such as statements listing the questionable purchases. When you le your report, you'll receive a notarized ID Theft Afdavit Packet from the reporting ofcer. The next step is getting a copy of the police report along with the notarized ID Theft Afdavit Take these, along with your driver's license and social security card to your bank; make copies of everything and send these to your credit card company and any other creditors involved. They need proof of the crime of identity theft before they can erase the debts run up in your name. Next, contact the three credit reporting bureaus Equifax (1-800-5256285), Experian (1-888-397-3742) and TransUnion (1-800-680-7289) to place a fraud alert on your credit le. With this service, you can receive two free credit reports within a 12-month period, and the credit reporting companies MUST take your name off marketing lists for prescreened credit offers for ve years, unless you request to be placed back on the list. Then, there is the process of recovering from identity theft and repairing your credit. It will take phone calls and letters and persistence in monitoring your credit accounts for any further unauthorized activity. Often, identity thieves will go back to well again and again. Placing an extended fraud alert (which lasts for seven years) in your credit le is one way to make this more difcult for them. It sounds like a lot to remember, but the most important thing is to act quickly. Getting that rst police report led ASAP, whether with the Madison County Sheriff's Ofce Fraud Division or another county that is involved, is the rst and most important step. For a detailed explanation of the steps that follow in the recovery/monitoring process, visit the Federal Trade Commission's consumer information site, www.consumer.ftc.gov scroll down and click on "Repairing Identity Theft" for a guide to getting back on track and preventing further assaults on your identity.Hurricane Preparedness Expo: Get a PlanGreene Publishing, Inc.

High up off the ground and looking like a giant brown paper lantern, an enormous hornets' nest, estimated to be about ve feet wide, encircles the trunk of a large oak tree out on Lovett Road. Pat and Norman Bush, whose driveway is directly across the road from the huge nest, rst noticed it a few days earlier when their grandson pointed it out. Pat Bush said that the hornets had also become more prevalent in their front yard, but so far, no one has been hurt. They had placed a call to Madison County's Mosquito Control Department, and Monday afternoon (June 3) the director, Jamie Willoughby went out to take a look at it, and conrmed that it was a hornets' nest the biggest one he'd ever seen. Because it is so close to a residence, he has in turn contacted experts from the University of Florida about the safest way to remove it.Greene Publishing, Inc.

Madison School District Honors 14 RetireesBy Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. Goodbyes can be difcult sometimes, but when a school districts bids farewell to 14 retiring employees who have over 400 years' collective experience among them, it is clear that they will be missed. "As School Superintendent, I am painfully aware of the gap left by their leaving," said Doug Brown in his opening remarks. Willie Williams, principal of Madison County Central School, echoed those sentiments a few moments later, added "I am happy for them, but I am sad to see them go. So many of them inuenced me." One by one, he called up the honorees from MCCS to receive their award plaques, both from the school district and from George Williams, President of the Madison County Education Association: Katherine "Kat" Davis (39 years), Audrey James (23 years), and Marion Stephens Jackson (21 years). "It's been a pleasure to be able to work with you," George Williams told Davis. "That's a lot of experience leaving our district." Willie Williams, crediting Audrey James with inuencing him in his early days of teaching, "when I had just started out and didn't know anything," said that she would be dearly, dearly, missed. Marion Stephens Jackson, he said, "served many roles, doing a wonderful job as usual. She leads by example. That's what teachers are...they are examples." Two others were honored in absentia: Elvira Miller (35 years) whose dedication to the Madison County School District, said Williams, was evident in the long distance she had to drive into work all those years to served the students of Madison County, and Willie Manor, who prefers to work quietly behind the scenes. Lee Elementary School Principal Robin Hill praised the two retirees from LES. For 32 years, Debbie Pittman was a teacher and a leader who could command the attention of her young students with a story and help them understand how and why they needed to correct any misbehavior. Students who had heard she was leaving still wanted her to come back and read them a story sometime. Caron Terrill (26 years), another longtime presence at LES, was known as the "gate-opener;" the rst one to arrive at the school in the early morning and the last one to leave at night. "Kids love her," said Hill. Greenville Elementary Principal Valencia Barnes said goodbye to Emily Dickey (35 years). "She was willing to work and do it with a smile," said Barnes. Beth Moore, Principal of Pinetta Elementary, bid goodbye to Charlotte Hammond (6 years), who was unable to attend. "I can't say enough about her," said Moore. "If you see her ask her for a hug. She gives good hugs. Just ask all those little pre-K kids." Tim Ginn, Maintenance Supervisor, said goodbye to Gloria Cashwell (37 years), a "johnny-on-the-spot" worker who started working for the school district while she herself was still in high school. Transportation Supervisor Ivan Johnson said goodbye to bus driver Mark Branham after four years. "If he'd stayed a little longer, he prob ably w ould have had a new bus." Superintendent Brown again took the podium with some heartfelt praise for Ramona Guess (41 years), Julia Waldrep (34 years) and Lou Miller (36 years). They had worked in the district as teachers and as administrators, and Brown estimated that the three of them collectively had directly impacted 13,320 lives, and many times that number indirectly "They are taking with them memories and the knowledge that thy have made a difference. A big difference," said Brown. "Teachers make a difference, folks." They would leave big shoes to ll, Brown continued, as he presented them with not only plaques, but also images of "big shoes" he'd found on the Internet. An image of a giant All-Star high-top sneaker went to team-player Guess, a big part of the county's ESE program and a "true asset to the district," said Brown. A picture of a giant high heel being driven by a motorcycle was chosen for Waldrep, whom Brown praised as "remarkable...that's all there is to it." A photo of a giant Redwing Boot went to Miller, who had served the district as teacher, principal and superintendent. "A truly gifted woman," said Brown. "A truly spiritual woman, and one who is very grounded in Jesus. We could all tell Lou stories and still be here tomorrow." In his closing remarks, Brown referenced his recent commencement speech at Saint Leo University where he had asked the Graduating class, "What will you do with your one wild and precious life?" "You've all lived your calling," he told the retirees. "What you've done with it is truly a blessing to all of us. We thank you, and God bless you in your retirement." www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, June 12, 2013 9A € Madison County CarrierAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY Greene Publishing, Inc.

B-SHOC will return to New Testament Christian Center for a concert on Friday, July 12, at 7 p.m. It didn’t happen overnight. B-SHOC’s switch from a successful night life artist to fully devoting his life to Jesus as a Christian entertainer was a process. Bryan Edmonds, aka BSHOC, was raised in a Christian home and accepted Christ as his Savior at a very young age. He knew Jesus his whole life. At the age of 16, B-SHOC’s heart started beating to the beat of rap music. Falling in love with the style, he pursued a career. With the success came the “rock-star” lifestyle which consisted of partying and women. Between performing and promoting, this fast life locked B-SHOC in the night clubs almost every night of the week. The chase for fame and money, and never seeming to reach satisfaction began to fill his heart with emptiness. Reaching a state of depression, B-SHOC became tired of the race. Knowing that God had his hand on him the whole time, B-SHOC knew it was time to run back to Him. B-SHOC disappeared from the scene for quite some time. After time off and prayer, he came back with quite an announcement... “From here on out, I’m singing for Jesus!” What a shock! Losing some fans and even some friends didn’t stop B-SHOC from pursuing his calling. Since then, God has opened many doors for B-SHOC, packing concerts full of energy and excitement for Jesus. BSHOC’s passion is to show people that praising God can be so much fun. Thru his concerts and CDs, he prays more people come to know Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. He gives ALL Glory to God. Admission is free. A love offering will be accepted. New Testament Christian Center is located at 2558 East US 90 in Madison. 2B € Madison County Carrier € Wednesday, June 12, 2013 Path of Faith B-SHOC Returns To New Testament Christian Center

There is a natural fear of a bee because of its nature to sting. Even if we were to see someone remove the bee’s stinger, and then the bee should buzz around our head, we would still be afraid and try to swat it to drive it away. When Paul addressed the mysterious subject of death, he asked two questions in 1 Corinthians 15:55 “O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” This may imply that there is a presence to death. My father had been confined to bed for two years before his death. You tell yourself that you are ready for death of a loved one when they reach this stage. But when the TIME actually comes, you are not as ready as you think. I was sitting by his bed when he stopped breathing. A strange feeling came over me as I felt the presence of death enter the room. We are not left without an answer. Paul says in verse 54, “Death is swallowed up in victory.” It is only a transfer from earth to glory, where we receive a new body. The exclamation is in verse 57: “Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Does the Christian have a divine assignment for departure? Ecclesiastes 3:1, 2 says, “To every thing there is a season... a time to be born, and a time to die...” Bishop Billy Murray, an old time preacher, and former General Overseer, on a Wednesday evening, he asked for a writing pad and pen. He had difficulty in beginning to write, so his wife suggested that he start with the date. He asked what the date was, and she informed him it was December 1. He wrote that date down, and after much effort, wrote December 8, and again December 15. Then, he looked at her and said, “I won’t be living through December. “His death certificate listed December 8 as his date of death. Was it death or was it just a new life... a new beginning? He experienced a divine victory that is found only in Jesus Christ, who was our first example to come forth from the grave. When we die in Christ, we will be released from this sick body to experience a new birth, a new body, free of Madison County Carrier € Wednesday, June 12, 2013 € 3B The PulpitBy Rev.

I’m writing this article while sitting in my father’s chair. You know the chair of which I speak. It is that ratty old recliner that occupies the living room, den, or man-cave that no guest or other family member is ever allowed access. It belongs exclusively to my father. So, how did I plant my butt in such an honored chair? Simple: It’s the best seat in the house, and my father isn’t here right now. While the master is away, I will occupy the throne; it is good to be king, if only for a few hours. When I was a kid I really thought my father was a king, and not just because of his chair. I looked up to him as if he were a superhero who could leap tall buildings with a single bound, bend steel bars with his bare hands, catch bullets in his teeth, and defeat all of his arch enemies. With hands the size of pot roasts and the strength of an ox, I was amazed at how he could lift me above his head, how fast he could run, and how there was nothing he could not do. “My daddy can beat up your daddy,” was a routine phrase on my lips. And smart? Lord, yes, he was smart. He seemed to understand or know everything! He could do pre-algebra in his head and long division without picking up a pencil; he could read the hardest words, fix anything broken, and solve any problem. He might as well have been a king. But as I got older, as a teenager, I discovered my father was growing remarkably stupid. In just a few short years, somehow, he became a backward, bumbling simpleton with not a clue to how the world really worked. He offered inane advice on everything from money and education to automobiles and the opposite sex. He set ridiculous boundaries in regard to my time, work, school, and friends. A few times he even dared to critique or forbid my well-made decisions. What an idiot. Then, in my twenties, my father must have returned to school or started taking smart pills. His counsel improved dramatically – almost overnight. His words were far sounder than I could ever remember. It was obvious an old dog could learn new tricks. I was so proud of him. And now, with growing children of my own, my father practically has a PhD. No, he’s not as big and strong as he once was, but he is absolutely brilliant, even smarter than before. His intellectual turnaround has been miraculous. But what bothers me is the fact that I am my father’s son. See, I get more like him every day: The cadence of my voice, my mannerisms, the gray in my beard, my dietary habits, my elevated cholesterol. So I fear I too will have a mid-life plunge into idiocy. I don’t have a “chair” at home, but today my children look upon me with something akin to worship, as I looked upon my father. Tomorrow they will despise my advice, my words, and the limitations I place upon them because my IQ will have shrunk down to nothing as their own rises to near Einstein levels. I know it is coming. I can feel it. Sometimes, just by the way my children look at me, or how they question my judgment, or when they angrily resist me, I can tell I’m getting dumber. I “just don’t understand.” I don’t “get it.” I’m standing in the way of their good time. It is all sure to get worse before it gets better. But hopefully, after a decade or so on the dark side, my mental capacities will improve as my 4B € Madison County Carrier € Wednesday, June 12, 2013Path of Faith Thanks Dad for Wising Up...Story continued on 5B...

In order to reach the other land, we must again die to this world and be born in the new world, where the air is fresh and pure, the water is clear, there is joy and peace, and no one is sick. So our earthly must put on the heavenly. Jesus has to take the sting out of the death in order for us to pass from here to there. There was a preacher that told of his 95-year-old mother who was beginning to see her mother, her daughter, and his father who had all preceded her in death. She sees him in a blue suit, as a young man, freshly bathed and smelling of her favorite cologne. That is getting pretty close to Heaven. She will go there someday, and it may be soon. Don’t swat the bee. This stinger has been removed. Only the birthing of the new world will need to take place. May everyone be blessed. Senior Pastor Richard B.

By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc. A state hearing ofce recommended on Monday, June 10, that the Florida Highway Patrol reinstate Trooper Charles Swindle, who was terminated after issuing a citation for not having an insurance card to State Rep. Charles McBurney, of Jacksonville. McBurney led a complaint with Swindles superiors, which led to Swindle being removed from the force. Hearing ofcer Gregg Morton acknowledged in the ruling (which was 22 pages long) that FHP has an unwritten rule, which tells state troopers to give lawmakers breaks. Camera footage of the trafc stop taken from Swindles vehicle shows the trooper telling the legislator that he is writing him a $10 citation for not having an insurance card instead of a $251 ticket for excessive speed. Mortons order reads The professional courtesy for legislators is discussed at the training academy for new troopers, is reinforced by supervisors, and is informally discussed among other employees. Morton did say that the ticket being written to McBurney was against FHP policy but that Swindle did not deserve to be terminated for writing it. Morton recommended that Swindle receive back pay for time lost and that he be reinstated after a three-week suspension without pay. Wed.

Cpl. Mike Maurice along with Sgt. Dennis Pitts responded to Mango. As Cpl. Maurice was traveling down Mango he passed a Dodge Dakota truck headed toward US 90. Cpl. Maurice turned around to make contact with the truck; however, the driver later identied as Eric Duane Kirkland, 36, of Jacksonville sped off at a high rate of speed. Cpl. Maurice initiated pursuit and informed Sgt. Pitts that the Dodge was headed toward US 90. Sgt. Pitts deployed spike strips in attempt to terminate the pursuit but was unsuccessful as Kirkland was able to avoid the spikes. Once the pursuit reached US 90, Kirkland turned west and continued to ee at more than 100 miles per hour. The pursuit entered the Town of Lee and Kirkland turned south onto CR 255 toward Interstate 10. Other responding deputies were approaching the pursuit when Kirkland decided to pull over. Deputies conducted a felony takedown and Kirkland was arrested without further incident. A search of the truck located an AR 10 .308 caliber assault rie on the front seat next to where Kirkland had been sitting. The rie was fully loaded and chambered with the safety off. Several extra rounds of ammunition were also recovered. During further investigation it was learned that Kirkland had met a female via the Internet who lived in the area of Mango. Kirkland admitted that he drove from Jacksonville to terrorize the female. Deputies identied the female and located more than 30 spent .308 rounds in the dirt road near her residence. It did not appear that the home was struck by any bullets. Kirkland was charged with aggravated stalking, eeing and eluding, use of a rearm during the commission of a felony and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bud Leonard, of the Wildwings Kennel located south of I-10, asked the County Commission for a letter of approval and support to bring the Bird Dog Jamboree to Madison in March of 2014. Were good to go, otherwise, he said. The Board of Directors for the Jamboree, hailing from 15 states across the country, is up for the challenge of bringing the event here, Leonard told the commissioners. All they needed was a letter indicating the backing of the community. The Jamboree includes both fun and sanctioned trials for the dogs, including fetch challenges, water retrieval and birddog races. Yogi Bear Campground plans to host at least part of the event, with the rest taking place on the Wildwings Kennel property. 100 percent of the proceeds raised from Birddog Jamboree Events goes to birddog rescues. Last year, over 6,000 birddogs were rescued, and about six or seven of those were retrained and are now working as guide dogs. If all goes well, Leonard added, this could become an annual event for Madison. The commission voted unanimously to send the letter of approval.Birddog Jamboree Wants to Come to MadisonBud Leonard addresses the County Commission regarding the Birddog Jamboree.

Elesta Pritchett, former Mayor of Greeneville, spoke to the Town Council at their June 10 meeting to thank the Public Works Department, headed up by J.C. Fead, for all the work they did to help get the boyhood home of music legend Ray Charles camera-ready for the lm crews of The Florida Channel. The modest home had been restored and dedicated in September of 2009, and open for tours since then, but the house needed a little sprucing up. Pritchett read a letter of gratitude, listing all the work Fead and his team had done to make the place look nice for the television crew, including planting owers in the owerbeds, replacing some steps on the porch, and thoroughly cleaning up the yard. I was so impressed, I didnt what to do, she said, smiling.

Breast cancer is far more common in industrialized countries than in 3rd world countries, and far more common in cities than in less densely populated regions. Women in certain professions (like nursing) are at greater risk. But this risk factor is easily controllable, if you know about it. We probably all know someone who has either breast or prostate cancer, as they are the most commonly diagnosed cancers in females and males respectively. Although family history is an uncontrollable risk factor in both cancers, there are many other risk factors that we can control, and may determine whether or not cancer develops. There is more and more evidence linking articial evening and night-time light to the growth of cancer cells. The risk of breast cancer is ve times higher in industrial nations lit with electric lights than in the underdeveloped countries of the world. A study done in 2001 by the Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Centre in Seattle found that women who worked the graveyard shift had a 60% greater risk of getting breast cancer than those that did not. Women that regularly sleep nine hours a night have less than a third the cancer rates of those that regularly sleep seven, according to a Finnish study published in Cancer Research in 2005. Interestingly, it does not seem to be the sleep that matters, but rather the hours spent in darkness. Melatonin is the immune hormone that is secreted in darkness. Melatonin is supposed to be at its peak between 1 and 2am, and if we are still up with the lights on at that time, very little or no melatonin will be secreted. Melatonin seems to stop cancer cells cold, and puts them to sleep for the night. Breast cancer grows in the presence of light, because of the absence of melatonin. In a very interesting study published in Dec. of 2005, rats that were implanted with human breast cancer were either given melatonin rich blood from women that had been in complete darkness for 2 hours, or blood from women that were exposed to bright light. The tumors in the rats that were given blood with the lowest melatonin concentrations (the blood that came from women exposed to light) multiplied the fastest. Melatonin seems to block the ability of cancer cells to metabolize linoleic acid, the omega 6 fatty acid that is found in vegetable oils, thereby preventing the cancer cells from dividing. Melatonin also seems to have a role in controlling the excess production of estrogen and estradiol, another factor in the growth of breast cancer. The recent statistics that have come out have indicated a big drop in rates of breast cancer, and it is believed that this drop was due to the reduced use of hormone replacement therapy in 2002, solidifying the theory that high estrogen levels play a roll in developing breast and also cervical cancer. Estrogen dominance may also occur as a result of chronically high insulin levels, so decrease your sugar and starchy carbohydrates if there is breast cancer in your family, and get your dark time, as melatonin also seems to have a role in controlling the excess production of estrogen and estradiol. It is interesting to note that decreased melatonin levels due to too little dark time results in increased levels of cortisol, which in turn translates into higher insulin levels, which leads to problems with type 2 diabetes and heart disease in addition to cancer. So, the bottom line is that getting enough hours in complete darkness is vital to hormone regulation, which is vital to optimal health. Although there is less research with regard to the protective effects of melatonin on prostate cancer, the research that is there certainly does support the hypothesis, and more research is ongoing. Melatonin seems to be protective in some other cancers as well, such as skin cancer. The message for us all? Get to bed early enough that you will get 9 hours of dark time, and use a red night light if you need to use the bathroom in the night. If going to bed early on a regular basis is impossible for you, get black-out drapes and make sure you get you can sleep in long enough in the morning to get your nine hours of dark time. Another super useful trick is to put on your sun glasses at 10pm use yellow lenses that cut out all blue light, as it is the blue light that is problematic. This would be a great strategy if you are working night shifts. It may also make it easier to fall asleep when you nally do make it to bed. Reducing your consumption of omega 6 fatty acids vegetable oils like soy, canola, sunower etc, grain-fed beef etc., and increase omega 3 intake from sh oils in order to improve the omega 6 to omega 3 ratio may also assist in reducing your risk of getting cancer.

In late 1942 at the age of 22, he purchased his rst piece of farm land near his parents home in neighboring Suwannee County. Eight years later as he tried to make the land productive despite being an absentee landowner, he came up with the idea of planting pine seedlings and watching them mature into productive forests. For more than sixty years now, we have been planting pine seedlings on timber tracts which have now expanded to eight in three North Florida counties. I began to pay attention to news reports on the problem of diminishing forests maybe 15 years ago. The alarmists were concerned about adverse environmental effects of deforestation including global warming. Woops, there I go again. Im no longer supposed to use the term global warming. The new politically correct term is climate change. My bad. My problem was that I wasnt seeing what the environmentalists were warning us about. For a century now, there has been no net loss of forest lands in the United States and today were growing far more trees than before thanks to many factors: market-driven forces; intensive forestry; genetic improvements, etc. This is especially true in the Southeast where more than two-thirds of all timberlands are in the hands of private landowners like my family. Let me give you a current example. Last fall, we harvested 120 acres of 14 year old slash pines. We just nished chipping the leftover hardwoods which will be used as fuel in nearby plant boilers. Currently, a cleanup crew is working to clear the acreage of stumps and pile the residue for burning. Early in the fall, well spray a herbicide mixture from the air to control competing species before planting in the winter. We have on order with Superior Trees nursery in Lee 87 thousand slash pine seedlings to reforest the 120 acre tract. About a year after the logging, the next crop will be in the ground and beginning to grow. This economic activity is taking place continually all across our region between mills, loggers, nurseries, landowners, planters, etc. The most visible evidence of this is all the logging trucks you see on our highways. There is plenty of deforestation occurring followed by a lot of work and expense to sew the next crop and be even more productive. Landowners are united in the practice of sustainable forestry, always planning and preparing for the next crop of trees. There are a lot of folks who dont see forestry as a component of farming or agriculture. Since agriculture is the science of growing food and ber, and wood cellulose is an extremely important ber for many uses, it certainly is an agricultural activity. A friend of mine once complained when he saw a timber tract being clearcut. My response you dont complain when you see a farmer clearcut his corn or soybeans. Its the same thing; only our crop rotation is much longer than conventional row crops. The economic chain that links the forestry business begins with landowners and includes nurseries, planters, loggers and mills. Also, site preparedness activities (mechanical and chemical) are important activities to intensive forestry. Throw in ancillary activities like pine straw and hunting and you have a thriving, interconnected, multi-layered business. The species that is particular to our brand of forestry is the southern yellow pine, namely loblolly, slash and longleaf. You will see these varieties growing throughout our region. A scientic inspection of the soil will tell which variety is best suited to a site. Pine trees are one of natures most efcient methods of carbon storage and the photosynthesis process produces incredible volumes of oxygen. Trees grow most places on earth, but they particularly like humid, warm environments where the growing season is long 6-7 months. Thats why they do particularly well in the southeastern US. There is plenty of wood grown in the Pacic Northwest and Canada, but it takes longer to grow the same wood volume that we turn out. The forests are particularly dense in the equatorial band around the earth where there is ample rainfall. In poor nations like Haiti where wood is used as a fuel, trees barely begin to grow when they are cut down to heat homes and cook food. Currently Northern Europe has become a steady customer for wood grown in the southeastern US and theyre using it for fuel. A new wood pellet factory in Waycross, GA uses pine roundwood grown within a hundred miles to manufacture pellets which are shipped across the Atlantic destined for wood heating stoves in Germany and Denmark. It seems the green movement is ne with burning wood as opposed to fossil fuels, but since their forests are limited and protected, theyre ne with using our more plentiful wood. Thats ne with me more customers, more prots. How long this market will last and how large it will grow is anybodys guess. Im not sure if deforestation is actually a problem or simply environmental hype, but I do know that it isnt a problem where we live. Were growing plenty of trees, then cutting them down and replanting, because there is an economic incentive to do so. Deforestation BAILEY MONUMENT CO 740252

By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. The evening of the Hurricane Preparedness Expo (Monday June 3), the skies to the east of town were dark with storm clouds. Expo Emcee Mike McCall mentioned that there was some trouble brewing in the Gulf, but as of that time, it was just a group of thunderstorms with no real organization. Two days later, the rst named storm of the 2013 Hurricane Season, Tropical Storm Andrea, formed out that disturbance, stomping around in the Gulf and causing trouble in the form of rough surf in several Gulf Coast states. Thursday, it spawned several tornadoes as it moved up the west coast of Florida and made landfall in the Big Bend area, passing through Madison with gusty winds and heavy rainfall. In retrospect, it was a most apt underlining of the Expos main theme, one that speakers touched upon throughout the evening: GET A PLAN. Bryan Koon of the Florida Division of Emergency Management said that the biggest part of the evenings success would be if everyone in the audience took to heart the message about having a plan, and shared it with friends and neighbors at Wednesday night church services, at softball games, or any other venue where crowds of people gather together in groups. People need to be prepared ahead of time for an emergency, he said, because once storms are on the radar and tracking toward Florida, it takes longer to get everything ready; chances are, everyone else who wasnt prepared ahead of time will be running around trying to get ready as well. Even WalMart can run short of emergency supplies when a lot of people start buying all at once. The other factor is that meteorology is still a fairly young science, and while knowledge and forecasting abilities improve each year, there are several factors that can come into play when predicting a storms path. Of the four or ve major groups (including the National Weather Service) that issue hurricane season predictions each year, the general consensus is that we are in an active hurricane cycle that might form 15 to 20 storms, and of those, nine or ten might become hurricanes. What remains to be seen is what will end up actually forming, where it will form and what factors will drive it along its course. North Florida has a high probability of being hit by a hurricane in any given year. As for getting ready, this is the right time to do that, said Koon. How It Will Impact Madison Wind: The southwest quadrant of a hurricane is the most dangerous, with the highest wind speeds. If the hurricane makes landfall in the Big Bend, this quadrant wont be that far away from the Gulf that fuels it, and the little slice of land that is Taylor County wont slow it down that much. Hurricanes can be several hundred miles across, spreading dangerously high winds over a wide swath. You dont have to be close to the eye to sustain heavy damage. Flash Floods: Depending on the amount of rain dumped on the area in only a few hours, ash oods can be a problem. Madison County barely squeaked by this danger with Tropical Storm Debby last year. Although the heavy rainfall caused ooding, Madison didnt get nearly as much rain as some of its neighboring counties, which saw up to 28 inches of rain. Madison is also bordering on two fairly sizable rivers, the Withlacoochie and the Suwannee, and these rivers ooded for several days after Debby passed through. Think about where your house or business is in relation to ood plains. Flooding often takes several days to abate, and river ooding may not crest until after the storm has passed through. Even if your house is on an elevated bit of land, what about the surrounding roads? Will they be underwater? What will the road between you and the grocery store, or the doctors ofce or your pets veterinarian look like for the next few days? If its underwater for several days, as many Suwannee County roads were after Debby, will you have enough supplies on hand to make it through? If you have horses and cows in addition to the usual cats or dogs, do you know whether or not the elds around your house are in a ood zone? Do you have a plan for moving your animals if necessary? If you dont know whether or not youre in a ood zone, check with the Planning and Zoning Board to nd out. Communication: How will you communicate? Cell phone towers can sustain damage in a storm, and service can be disrupted. The Internet can also go down for several hours or even several days, depending on how fast the damage can be repaired. One of the results of the digital age is that so much of our information, including telephone numbers of friends, family members, doctors ofces, insurance companies and law enforcement, is stored electronically, on cell phones and smart phones. Many times, people have no idea what their friends and family members telephone numbers are, because theyre so used to bringing up a photo on a smart phone to make a call. It almost seems like a step backward in the digital age, but in an emergency, low-tech rules. If you still have a landline phone in your house, hang onto to it. Write down all your important phone numbers and keep a hard copy list near your landline phone. The good old print phone directory is a bonus in this instance as well, if you havent thrown yours out already. Power: You can prob ably count on the power to go out during a storm, but theres no way of knowing how long it will stay out. Battery-powered ashlights and lanterns and plenty of extra batteries for everything are essential. If you are lucky enough to still have cell phone service after the power has gone out, youll need to recharge those phones if the power stays out for several days. Make sure all of your cell phones have car chargers, and that you know where to nd them. The glove box in your car is the best place to keep them. Gathering Supplies Food: Have enough non-perishable or non-refrigerated food on hand for at least 72 hours. Since the power will most likely be out, it should be food that doesnt need cooking. Dont forget about pet food and livestock food. Water: Have one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days. Again, dont forget about pets and livestock. Medication: Have a three-day supply of any prescription medications you or you family may need, as well as OTC medications like ibuprofen. Dont forget your pets prescriptions. Have a standard rst aid kit on hand to treat any injuries that may occur. Ice and Ice Chests: Ice is one of those items you can grab a day or two before the storm is due, but its also something that will disappear the fastest from the grocery store. Dont wait until the very last minute. Bags of ice can be stored a day or two in your freezer until you need them. Clothes: After surviving the storm, theres the clean-up period. Youll need jeans and work shirts, galoshes or boots, and work gloves. Dont count on being able to get these items, especially work boots and gloves, at local stores after the storm blows through. Cash: Even if you can get to a store afterward, it may be unable to run your credit or debit card. Full Gas Tank: If the power is out, gas pumps wont operate. Fill the tanks in all your vehicles. If individuals do as much as they can beforehand, they have a much better chance of surviving the storm and not being absolutely miserable afterwards as they work to recover from the aftermath. In the next report on the Hurricane Preparedness Expo, well look at what small business owners need to think about when making plans for a storm. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, June 12, 2013 Madison County Carrier 5 AAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY Tina DeMotsis: Identity Theft Still a Major Concern, PART IIIBy Lynette Norris Greene Publication, Inc. Tina DeMotsis heads up the Fraud Division of the Madison County Sheriffs Ofce, and recently, she addressed the 55 Plus Club about the topic of identity theft. In Part I, we looked at some of the known ways thieves manage to steal your personal information. In Part II, we looked at ways people can safeguard their information. Part III, the nal report, advises what to do if your identity is stolen. Youve carefully shredded all your old documents and guarded your account numbers and other personal information like gold; yet one day, your credit card is declined for no reason, or a check bounces when you know theres no way that should happen. You call your credit card company (or they call you) and discover its been maxed out with purchases you didnt make. You go to your bank and nd your checking account overdrawn with checks you didnt write. Or, you get an invoice from a company you never heard of, or a statement for a hefty sum of money for charges you didnt make from your credit card company, or maybe you get a bill from a credit card youve never even owned. Maybe you start to get phone calls from creditors about accounts that have been opened and maxed out in your name, and this is the rst youve heard of it. Your heart drops like a rock in a pond as you realize your identity has been stolen. For some people, its an overwhelming sense of panic. Their security has been breeched and they didnt even realize it, and now creditors are demanding money. For others, its equal parts fear and anger. Who are these identity thieves, these invisible bottom feeders, and how did they manage to latch onto you? How dare they so brazenly take over your life like that! Immediately after the realization of what has happened, the real work begins. The rst step is to immediately contact your local law enforcement agency to le a report. In Madison County, thats the Madison County Sheriffs Ofce at (850) 973-4001. Ask for the Fraud Division. You should also know that under Florida law, you have a choice of where to le your report: either in the county where the fraud occurred, or the county you live in. For example, assuming you live in Madison County, and you get phone calls from a Tallahassee store about a charge run up in your name, you can le your report in Leon County or in Madison County. When you go to le your report, bring as much documentation as you can gather, such as account numbers of the affected accounts, debt collection reports, phone numbers of agencies that have contacted you, any evidence of fraudulent activity on your account such as statements listing the questionable purchases. When you le your report, youll receive a notarized ID Theft Afdavit Packet from the reporting ofcer. The next step is getting a copy of the police report along with the notarized ID Theft Afdavit. Take these, along with your drivers license and social security card to your bank; make copies of everything and send these to your credit card company and any other creditors involved. They need proof of the crime of identity theft before they can erase the debts run up in your name. Next, contact the three credit reporting bureaus Equifax (1-800-5256285), Experian (1-888-397-3742) and TransUnion (1-800-680-7289) to place a fraud alert on your credit le. With this service, you can receive two free credit reports within a 12-month period, and the credit reporting companies MUST take your name off marketing lists for prescreened credit offers for ve years, unless you request to be placed back on the list. Then, there is the process of recovering from identity theft and repairing your credit. It will take phone calls and letters and persistence in monitoring your credit accounts for any further unauthorized activity. Often, identity thieves will go back to well again and again. Placing an extended fraud alert (which lasts for seven years) in your credit le is one way to make this more difcult for them. It sounds like a lot to remember, but the most important thing is to act quickly. Getting that rst police report led ASAP, whether with the Madison County Sheriffs Ofce Fraud Division or another county that is involved, is the rst and most important step. For a detailed explanation of the steps that follow in the recovery/monitoring process, visit the Federal Trade Commissions consumer information site, www.consumer.ftc.gov, scroll down and click on Repairing Identity Theft for a guide to getting back on track and preventing further assaults on your identity.Hurricane Preparedness Expo: Get a PlanGreene Publishing, Inc.

High up off the ground and looking like a giant brown paper lantern, an enormous hornets nest, estimated to be about ve feet wide, encircles the trunk of a large oak tree out on Lovett Road. Pat and Norman Bush, whose driveway is directly across the road from the huge nest, rst noticed it a few days earlier when their grandson pointed it out. Pat Bush said that the hornets had also become more prevalent in their front yard, but so far, no one has been hurt. They had placed a call to Madison Countys Mosquito Control Department, and Monday afternoon (June 3) the director, Jamie Willoughby went out to take a look at it, and conrmed that it was a hornets nest the biggest one hed ever seen. Because it is so close to a residence, he has in turn contacted experts from the University of Florida about the safest way to remove it.Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Lynette Norris, June 3, 2013This giant nest is home to thousands of hornets, just across the road from Pat and Norman Bush.

Madison School District Honors 14 RetireesBy Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. Goodbyes can be difcult sometimes, but when a school districts bids farewell to 14 retiring employees who have over 400 years collective experience among them, it is clear that they will be missed. As School Superintendent, I am painfully aware of the gap left by their leaving, said Doug Brown in his opening remarks. Willie Williams, principal of Madison County Central School, echoed those sentiments a few moments later, added I am happy for them, but I am sad to see them go. So many of them inuenced me. One by one, he called up the honorees from MCCS to receive their award plaques, both from the school district and from George Williams, President of the Madison County Education Association: Katherine Kat Davis (39 years), Audrey James (23 years), and Marion Stephens Jackson (21 years). Its been a pleasure to be able to work with you, George Williams told Davis. Thats a lot of experience leaving our district. Willie Williams, crediting Audrey James with inuencing him in his early days of teaching, when I had just started out and didnt know anything, said that she would be dearly, dearly, missed. Marion Stephens Jackson, he said, served many roles, doing a wonderful job as usual. She leads by example. Thats what teachers are...they are examples. Two others were honored in absentia: Elvira Miller (35 years) whose dedication to the Madison County School District, said Williams, was evident in the long distance she had to drive into work all those years to served the students of Madison County, and Willie Manor, who prefers to work quietly behind the scenes. Lee Elementary School Principal Robin Hill praised the two retirees from LES. For 32 years, Debbie Pittman was a teacher and a leader who could command the attention of her young students with a story and help them understand how and why they needed to correct any misbehavior. Students who had heard she was leaving still wanted her to come back and read them a story sometime. Caron Terrill (26 years), another longtime presence at LES, was known as the gate-opener; the rst one to arrive at the school in the early morning and the last one to leave at night. Kids love her, said Hill. Greenville Elementary Principal Valencia Barnes said goodbye to Emily Dickey (35 years). She was willing to work and do it with a smile, said Barnes. Beth Moore, Principal of Pinetta Elementary, bid goodbye to Charlotte Hammond (6 years), who was unable to attend. I cant say enough about her, said Moore. If you see her ask her for a hug. She gives good hugs. Just ask all those little pre-K kids. Tim Ginn, Maintenance Supervisor, said goodbye to Gloria Cashwell (37 years), a johnny-on-the-spot worker who started working for the school district while she herself was still in high school. Transportation Supervisor Ivan Johnson said goodbye to bus driver Mark Branham after four years. If hed stayed a little longer, he prob ably w ould have had a new bus. Superintendent Brown again took the podium with some heartfelt praise for Ramona Guess (41 years), Julia Waldrep (34 years) and Lou Miller (36 years). They had worked in the district as teachers and as administrators, and Brown estimated that the three of them collectively had directly impacted 13,320 lives, and many times that number indirectly They are taking with them memories and the knowledge that thy have made a difference. A big difference, said Brown. Teachers make a difference, folks. They would leave big shoes to ll, Brown continued, as he presented them with not only plaques, but also images of big shoes hed found on the Internet. An image of a giant All-Star high-top sneaker went to team-player Guess, a big part of the countys ESE program and a true asset to the district, said Brown. A picture of a giant high heel being driven by a motorcycle was chosen for Waldrep, whom Brown praised as remarkable...thats all there is to it. A photo of a giant Redwing Boot went to Miller, who had served the district as teacher, principal and superintendent. A truly gifted woman, said Brown. A truly spiritual woman, and one who is very grounded in Jesus. We could all tell Lou stories and still be here tomorrow. In his closing remarks, Brown referenced his recent commencement speech at Saint Leo University where he had asked the Graduating class, What will you do with your one wild and precious life? Youve all lived your calling, he told the retirees. What youve done with it is truly a blessing to all of us. We thank you, and God bless you in your retirement. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, June 12, 2013 9A Madison County CarrierAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY Greene Publishing, Inc.

B-SHOC will return to New Testament Christian Center for a concert on Friday, July 12, at 7 p.m. It didnt happen overnight. B-SHOCs switch from a successful night life artist to fully devoting his life to Jesus as a Christian entertainer was a process. Bryan Edmonds, aka BSHOC, was raised in a Christian home and accepted Christ as his Savior at a very young age. He knew Jesus his whole life. At the age of 16, B-SHOCs heart started beating to the beat of rap music. Falling in love with the style, he pursued a career. With the success came the rock-star lifestyle which consisted of partying and women. Between performing and promoting, this fast life locked B-SHOC in the night clubs almost every night of the week. The chase for fame and money, and never seeming to reach satisfaction began to fill his heart with emptiness. Reaching a state of depression, B-SHOC became tired of the race. Knowing that God had his hand on him the whole time, B-SHOC knew it was time to run back to Him. B-SHOC disappeared from the scene for quite some time. After time off and prayer, he came back with quite an announcement... From here on out, Im singing for Jesus! What a shock! Losing some fans and even some friends didnt stop B-SHOC from pursuing his calling. Since then, God has opened many doors for B-SHOC, packing concerts full of energy and excitement for Jesus. BSHOCs passion is to show people that praising God can be so much fun. Thru his concerts and CDs, he prays more people come to know Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. He gives ALL Glory to God. Admission is free. A love offering will be accepted. New Testament Christian Center is located at 2558 East US 90 in Madison. 2B Madison County Carrier Wednesday, June 12, 2013 Path of Faith B-SHOC Returns To New Testament Christian Center

There is a natural fear of a bee because of its nature to sting. Even if we were to see someone remove the bees stinger, and then the bee should buzz around our head, we would still be afraid and try to swat it to drive it away. When Paul addressed the mysterious subject of death, he asked two questions in 1 Corinthians 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? This may imply that there is a presence to death. My father had been confined to bed for two years before his death. You tell yourself that you are ready for death of a loved one when they reach this stage. But when the TIME actually comes, you are not as ready as you think. I was sitting by his bed when he stopped breathing. A strange feeling came over me as I felt the presence of death enter the room. We are not left without an answer. Paul says in verse 54, Death is swallowed up in victory. It is only a transfer from earth to glory, where we receive a new body. The exclamation is in verse 57: Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Does the Christian have a divine assignment for departure? Ecclesiastes 3:1, 2 says, To every thing there is a season... a time to be born, and a time to die... Bishop Billy Murray, an old time preacher, and former General Overseer, on a Wednesday evening, he asked for a writing pad and pen. He had difficulty in beginning to write, so his wife suggested that he start with the date. He asked what the date was, and she informed him it was December 1. He wrote that date down, and after much effort, wrote December 8, and again December 15. Then, he looked at her and said, I wont be living through December. His death certificate listed December 8 as his date of death. Was it death or was it just a new life... a new beginning? He experienced a divine victory that is found only in Jesus Christ, who was our first example to come forth from the grave. When we die in Christ, we will be released from this sick body to experience a new birth, a new body, free of Madison County Carrier Wednesday, June 12, 2013 3B The PulpitBy Rev.

Im writing this article while sitting in my fathers chair. You know the chair of which I speak. It is that ratty old recliner that occupies the living room, den, or man-cave that no guest or other family member is ever allowed access. It belongs exclusively to my father. So, how did I plant my butt in such an honored chair? Simple: Its the best seat in the house, and my father isnt here right now. While the master is away, I will occupy the throne; it is good to be king, if only for a few hours. When I was a kid I really thought my father was a king, and not just because of his chair. I looked up to him as if he were a superhero who could leap tall buildings with a single bound, bend steel bars with his bare hands, catch bullets in his teeth, and defeat all of his arch enemies. With hands the size of pot roasts and the strength of an ox, I was amazed at how he could lift me above his head, how fast he could run, and how there was nothing he could not do. My daddy can beat up your daddy, was a routine phrase on my lips. And smart? Lord, yes, he was smart. He seemed to understand or know everything! He could do pre-algebra in his head and long division without picking up a pencil; he could read the hardest words, fix anything broken, and solve any problem. He might as well have been a king. But as I got older, as a teenager, I discovered my father was growing remarkably stupid. In just a few short years, somehow, he became a backward, bumbling simpleton with not a clue to how the world really worked. He offered inane advice on everything from money and education to automobiles and the opposite sex. He set ridiculous boundaries in regard to my time, work, school, and friends. A few times he even dared to critique or forbid my well-made decisions. What an idiot. Then, in my twenties, my father must have returned to school or started taking smart pills. His counsel improved dramatically almost overnight. His words were far sounder than I could ever remember. It was obvious an old dog could learn new tricks. I was so proud of him. And now, with growing children of my own, my father practically has a PhD. No, hes not as big and strong as he once was, but he is absolutely brilliant, even smarter than before. His intellectual turnaround has been miraculous. But what bothers me is the fact that I am my fathers son. See, I get more like him every day: The cadence of my voice, my mannerisms, the gray in my beard, my dietary habits, my elevated cholesterol. So I fear I too will have a mid-life plunge into idiocy. I dont have a chair at home, but today my children look upon me with something akin to worship, as I looked upon my father. Tomorrow they will despise my advice, my words, and the limitations I place upon them because my IQ will have shrunk down to nothing as their own rises to near Einstein levels. I know it is coming. I can feel it. Sometimes, just by the way my children look at me, or how they question my judgment, or when they angrily resist me, I can tell Im getting dumber. I just dont understand. I dont get it. Im standing in the way of their good time. It is all sure to get worse before it gets better. But hopefully, after a decade or so on the dark side, my mental capacities will improve as my 4B Madison County Carrier Wednesday, June 12, 2013 Path of Faith Thanks Dad for Wising Up...Story continued on 5B...

The Pulpit Story cont. from 3B pain. Why do we have to die anyway? In order to reach the other land, we must again die to this world and be born in the new world, where the air is fresh and pure, the water is clear, there is joy and peace, and no one is sick. So our earthly must put on the heavenly. Jesus has to take the sting out of the death in order for us to pass from here to there. There was a preacher that told of his 95-year-old mother who was beginning to see her mother, her daughter, and his father who had all preceded her in death. She sees him in a blue suit, as a young man, freshly bathed and smelling of her favorite cologne. That is getting pretty close to Heaven. She will go there someday, and it may be soon. Dont swat the bee. This stinger has been removed. Only the birthing of the new world will need to take place. May everyone be blessed. Senior Pastor Richard B. Sauls phone number is (919) 745-0225.
