Kevin Anderson was dispatched to a burglary alarm at the Pinetta Market. Upon arrival, Anderson immediately noticed the front glass door was shattered. Anderson made contact with the owner of the store and learned that several cases of candy, beer and possibly lottery tickets were taken from the store. Corporal Anderson deployed Canine Max to track the potential suspects from the store. Canine Max successfully tracked the suspects over several fences and Anderson noted candy on the ground at each fence to match the candy that was taken from the store. Anderson eventually came to a fence that was not possible for Canine Max to get over and he returned to the store to view the video with the owner. The video confirmed that the two first shattered the glass door and one ran in and took two 18 packs of beer while the other staged himself as "Lookout." The suspects each fled the scene with each carrying a case of beer. The store alarm malfunctioned and did not alert and the suspects later returned a second time, entered the store and took a case of Butterfingers, case of M&M's, and attempted to take lottery tickets. The alarm alerted during the second entrance and the suspects fled on foot carrying the cases of candy. Cpl. Odom arrived on scene to assist Corporal Anderson as they returned to the area Canine Max had tracked. Canine Max again continued tracking the suspects to a residence. Contact was made with the owner of the residence, who immediately advised the suspects being sought were inside her house. Odom requested the suspects to come outside the residence and immediately recognized the physical characteristics and clothing to match that as seen on the video surveillance. The suspects were identified as Joseph Korey and Taylor Pleasant. Both subjects were placed under arrest and post Miranda confessed to the crime and some of the stolen candy was recovered. Korey, 17, of Madison, was arrested and charged with two counts of burglary, two counts of theft and underage possession of alcohol. Pleasant, 19, of Madison, was arrested and charged with one count of burglary, one count of accessory to burglary, theft, possession of stolen property and underage possession of alcohol.

The 2007 Impala refused to stop and accelerated in an attempt to elude Lauth. Lauth initiated a pursuit with blue lights and siren as the Impala continued to ee until losing control and crashing the Impala at the intersection of County Camp Road and Ammons Avenue. The driver quickly exited the Impala and ed away on foot. The vehicle owner was identied and stated that her husband was the only person to have the vehicle. The owner further described her husband and clothing to match that of the person eeing on foot after the crash. Responding units, Sgt. Boatwright, Deputy Kirkland and Madison Police Patrolman Smith set up a perimeter to capture the suspect. Soon thereafter, Patrolmen Smith heard noises in a wooded area just north of the crash site. The subject was located lying in the woods just off the roadway. The subject (driver) was identied as Winfort Kardell Bareld, 47, of Madison, and charged with eeing and eluding, driving with a suspended license (habitual), resisting arrest without violence and possession of marijuana less than 20 grams. Winfort Kardell Bar“eldMan Arrested For Resisting Arrest and Fleeing and EludingNew trafc-control measures are planned for two City of Madison neighborhoods. Four-way stop signs will soon be installed by the city at the intersection of Northwest Crane Avenue and Northwest Marion Street near the construction site of the new Madison County Memorial Hospital and a new James Madison Charter School. Once the four-way stop signs are installed, city workers will mark them with ags or streamers to alert motorists. The signs will be installed on a trial basis. Additionally, speed limits will be lowered from 30 mph to 20 mph in the neighborhood north of Northeast Livingston Street and from 30 mph to 25 mph on a wider section of Northeast Fraleigh Drive. "These lower speed limits are more conducive to the residential character of these streets; it makes them safer and consistent with similar neighboring streets in the city," Police Chief Gary Calhoun said. He had announced the changes in a report to the City Commission on June 11. "We will monitor the changes and make any adjustments as needed," Calhoun said.

Photo by Jacob Bembry, July 1, 2013Madison City Hall To Be Closed Thursday In a June 25 speech at Georgetown University, President Obama announced a broad new federal mandate to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from electric power plants. The President will instruct federal regulators to apply the Clean Air Act to carbon dioxide issued from power plants. While the President's scheme will impose a massive new climate tax upon all consumers; we at TriCounty Electric Cooperative are especially concerned about this proposal because our members already spend disproportionately more on energy than other consumers across the country. "The President's proposal will hit co-op served families and businesses here awfully hard," said John Martz, CEO SVEC. "These regulations are costly, and they take autonomy from our co-op by challenging our ability to make decisions that govern our own infrastructure." The President's climate tax fails to take into account electric cooperatives' existing efforts to integrate renewable energy into our power portfolios. Co-ops are at the forefront of energy efciency initiatives working hard to reduce the need to build expensive new power plants. "Ultimately, electric cooperatives are about keeping electric bills affordable and providing underserved communities the power they need to improve their quality of life," said Martz. "The President's proposal will make electric power more expensive, causing families and businesses to sacrice on top of all the other uncertainty in our national economy. Without question, electric bills will get bigger for the Americans who can least afford to pay them."

Being well hydrated is vitally important for us to function at our best. So how much water is enough? We can calculate the amount of pure filtered water we need daily by taking our bodyweight in pounds and dividing it by two. I weigh 205 therefore I should be drinking about 102.5 ounces of water. With 32 ounces per quart I would need a little over 3 quarts or 3 liters of water (a quart and a liter being fairly close to the same size). That is what we need a day to keep our cells functioning optimally. You may find it helpful to measure your water, or find some way of keeping track of how much you are drinking when you are trying to create this new habit. Juice, soda, and caffeinated beverages do not count, as they are dehydrating to our systems. If your urine is clear to very pale yellow, you are well hydrated. Congratulations! What kind of water is safest for us to drink? The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has reported that the biggest polluter of US rivers and streams is commercial agricultural chemicals that are sprayed onto crops, and then run off into the waterways. It is questionable whether other countries are much better. Is tap water really safe enough? If possible, install a wholehouse water filtration system (your welcome, companies that sell these systems) in order to filter out agricultural chemicals, as well as chlorine, heavy metals and other contaminants that are frequently found in water supplies, even in very large cities. If the water turns your tub green, you don’t want to be drinking it, and you don’t want to be bathing in it as your skin absorbs about 70 percent of those contaminants. If you live in an apartment or condominium, it may be easier to install tap and shower filters. The water tastes better, and makes for softer skin in the bath or shower. Filtering your own water is better than buying bottled, as many of the bottled waters are not contaminant free and are sometimes worse than tap water, AND the plastic bottles cause an enormous amount of garbage. I know I am not drinking enough water and need to adjust because it will not only help me function better but will also prob ably help with my being over weight. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 3, 2013 2A € Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS National SecurityJoe Boyles Guest Columnist Health & Wellness Tipsfrom Frank Nathan, Executive Director Lake Park of MadisonDid You Know...I cannot allow the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg pass without comment. I love walking across old battleelds to appreciate the enormous life and death struggle that makes the ground hallo wed. I’ve pr obably visited Gettysburg six times over the years. Each time, I gain new perspective on the great struggle that happened there in the rst three days of July 1863. Today marks the anniversary of the third day of the battle, which began on the July 1st. By this day, the day of Pickett’s Charge toward Cemetery Ridge, the die was cast. The lost opportunity on the rst day, particularly at the northern end of the battleeld, coupled with the failure to secure Little Round Top on the second day, spelled doom for the Army of Northern Virginia. Into the maelstrom, Lee ordered Longstreet to attack, led by George Pickett’s Virginia division. It was a slaughter as the infantry marched more than a mile across and up a eld into the waiting guns and cannon of the Army of the Potomac. In an hour’s time, the ower of Lee’s army was lost and the high tide of the Confederacy eclipsed. As brilliant as Robert E. Lee was, I’ve always questioned his attacks into the North. He did this twice, rst in Maryland in the fall of 1862 and later, into southern Pennsylvania in the summer of 1863. He was very fortunate the rst time at Antietam, but his luck ran out at Gettysburg. It seems to me that Lee was at his best defending: in the Peninsula campaign; at Fredericksburg; at Chancellorsville; in the Overland campaign; and at Cold Harbor. His boldest offensive commander, Stonewall Jackson, was dead before the Pennsylvania campaign began. His best corps commander, James Longstreet, was a master of the defensive. Why risk so much by going on the offensive? Longstreet repeatedly warned him against this strategy. Although Lee was coming off a brilliant year of victories against the poorly led Army of the Potomac, he felt that the South was doomed by a defensive strategy fought on their own home ground. He convinced Jefferson Davis that the South’s only chance at victory would come from a knockout blow against the principle northern army on their home ground followed by public demoralization. Thus, the Pennsylvania campaign was begun in the aftermath of Hooker’s defeat at Chancellorsville. Lincoln changed commanders three days before the fateful engagement at Gettysburg, installing George Gordon Meade as the new commander. Meade was cautious but otherwise, a brilliant tactician. He would stay in command for the remainder of the war. On July 1st, lead elements of the two armies stumbled into each other at the small crossroads of Gettysburg, just seven miles north of the Mason-Dixon Line. The rst day belonged to the South although there was no knockout blow. Both commanders rushed their scattered troops forward to form a battle line shaped like an upside-down shhook south of Gettysburg. Lee was operating with a signicant deciency -he had lost touch with his cavalry commander, JEB Stuart. He did not understand the topography of the battleeld or disposition of forces because his “eyes” were missing. Meade ended up with the superior defensive position and had more troops at his disposal. The battle was on. More than 150,000 troops were engaged in the epic struggle. In three hot days of summer, one-third would fall. Repeatedly, troops of the Army of Northern Virginia rushed upward to their counterpart’s superior defensive positions: at Spangler’s Spring; The Devil’s Den; Little Round Top, and Cemetery Ridge; only to be repulsed. The slaughter continued to the point of exhaustion. On Independence Day, Lee packed up what was left of his battered army and retreated south. On the same day, 700 miles away in western Mississippi, Pemberton surrendered the last Confederate outpost on the great river to Ulysses Grant, effectively cutting the South into two halves. July 4, 1863 was the death knell of the Confederacy. As a result of a brilliant string of victories in the west, Grant would be summoned to Washington by President Lincoln to command all northern armies to their nal victory. The battered townsfolk of Gettysburg, population 2300, would begin cleaning up an incredible mess of bodies, human and animal, left rotting in the summer heat. The public health threat was beyond comprehension. Four months later in mid-November, Abraham Lincoln would arrive to help dedicate the resting place of thousands of war dead. His short two minute speech is among the most famous in American history. These were the events that took place 150 years ago. They are among the most momentous in our history and helped shape the nation we know today. Gettysburg I love food. I love to think about it, read about it, write about it, cook and bake it, share it, and enthusiastically eat it. I am also one of those people that will moan while eating if it’s a food I especially love. I tell you this, because if we happen to eat together someday and you are a person easily embarrassed, you’ve been forewarned. For most of us, eating as adults is radically different than eating when we were children. As a child, I was a “healthy” eater and ate almost all foods with absolutely no regard for things like fat grams or calories. If it looked good or tasted good, I ate it. I remember coming home from school and asking that eternal question that moms everywhere are asked, “What’s for supper?” If I heard the words “fried” or “gravy” (which was so often the case) it would make my heart utter. Sadly, I learned since that the utter was most likely due to the large amounts of fat I was ingesting while clogging up my little arteries. Other things I learned were proper nutrition, healthier food choices, and the importance of giving up “bad” foods. Working with food as a profession can be a serious struggle if you come from a family with overactive fat genes combined with a serious love of food. Giving up certain foods I loved seemed to be the only solution if I was going to maintain a healthy body and continue to work in a profession I loved. So, I developed my list of “Never Eat Foods.” This list was created, not just because the foods were high in calories and fat, but because I also loved them so much that my portion control meter became non-existent when they were in front of me and self-control was nowhere to be found. Today, I don’t remember all the foods on that list, but the ones I do still remember were, and still are, some of my favorites: peanut butter, ice cream, donuts, and potato salad. I’ve grown since those days, both in age and understanding, and I know now that the foods themselves aren’t the villains I made them out to be. I’m willing to also have more self-control, after depriving myself of foods I love for so long, so that I can enjoy my favorites again. Some of those forbidden foods nd themselves on my menu only once a year, because that is when they are at their best and waiting all year becomes worth the wait. Having a BLT at the peak of tomato season and a blackberry cobbler (with ice cream!) when berries are at their sweetest makes total sense to my taste buds as well as my calorie-counting brain. With July 4th approaching, my taste buds start craving that formally forbidden food, potato salad. Mayonnaise or mustard? Russet or red potatoes? My answer to those questions is “yes!” Potato salad has many versions and countless recipes and I have yet to meet one that I don’t like. However, my newest potato salad recipe, is a favorite. This recipe, to me, is extraordinary, as was the woman who gave it to me. By the time I met her, she was “done with cooking,” but not done eating good food. She shared the recipe along with the story of her annual making of this potato salad that was always expected at their family gathering. I was honored to know her and to be given her recipe. If I’m asked to bring potato salad to any gathering, this is the recipe I will look for and make. This year, if you happen to be the potato salad maker, or if you just need a good recipe to tuck into your les, please try this one. You can be certain that, along with enjoying my freedom in this country, I’ll be free from my old mindset of “bad” foods and will be eating my share of potato salad right along with you. Have a happy and safe 4th of July! Blanche’s Potato Salad I’m printing this recipe exactly as she gave it to me with my notes in parentheses. When I rst made this recipe I ended up adding more potatoes because it was saucier than I liked (highly likely my potatoes were smaller than what she used). Also, she mashed her potatoes, which I like. Feel free to chop if that’s what you prefer. 6 medium regular white potatoes (I use about 9 medium russet) 6 or 7 hard boiled eggs 2 to 3 cups mayonnaise (I start with 1 1/2 cups) 1/2 cup yellow mustard 1 cup sweet pickles, chopped ne (do not use relish) 1 cup nely chopped celery heart 1 1/2 bunches chopped green onion (about 3/4 cup) 1 big jar chopped pimentos 2 tsp salt Boil potatoes in skin; when fork tender (meaning when you can easily pierce potatoes with a fork) drain and peel while potatoes are still warm. Mash potatoes and eggs and add salt (her potatoes weren’t smooth like actual mashed potatoes, but rather coarsely chopped with a potato masher). In a separate bowl, combine mayonnaise and mustard and then stir in remaining ingredients. Add more mayonnaise until desired texture. Remember, potato salad is highly perishable due to the mayonnaise and can cause food-borne illness. If you do take this to a potluck, don’t let it sit out more than one hour. But I think this potato salad is so good that chances are it won’t even last that long.

By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. In the years after World War II, with the Great Depression nally over and the economy booming, there were still many bright young high school students, especially in places like rural North Florida, who didn't even consider going to college. Even with full scholarships, they simply wouldn't have had the money for room and board, since scholarships typically covered only tuition and books. That began to change in the 1950s, when Dr. Mode L. Stone of Florida State University gave the commencement address at Altha High School, near his native Blountstown, in Calhoun County, Florida. Stone met two of the graduates, one of them the class valedictorian, and learned that they wanted to go to college, but couldn't afford the cost of housing even with full tuition scholarships. From that small beginning came the idea for the Southern Scholarship Foundation an idea to provide cooperative living arrangements where students could pool their money and work together, to make the dream of college education a reality for each of them. The rst cooperative living arrangement was for eleven young men in the abandoned Dale Mabry barracks with donated furniture and appliances. As the word of the arrangement spread, the idea caught on and soon a pool of contributors had managed to purchase the rst Scholarship House in 1955. Today, the Southern Scholarship Foundation houses nearly 450 students in 26 Scholarship Houses: 13 at Florida State University, three at Florida A & M University, nine at the University of Florida and one at Gulf Coast University in Ft. Myers, providing aid for deserving but nancially needy students in the form of rent-free housing. Funds for the maintenance, repair and operation of the houses comes from business leaders, corporations, charitable groups, individuals and civic organizations including Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions Clubs and Business and Professional Women of Florida. Mickey Moore, the current CEO of the Southern Scholarship Foundation, recently visited the Madison Rotary Club to speak about the Southern Scholarship's ongoing mission to help bright, capable, hard-working high school graduates achieve their dream, and tell the Rotary members a little about how contributions and community support for the Foundation helped students realize educational goals that might have otherwise been unattainable. To give everyone an idea of how much the Southern Scholarship Foundation means to the students it serves, Moore read aloud from a letter the Foundation had recently received from a Scholarship House student. The young woman had recently earned two B.A. degrees and was hoping to enter the Florida State University Medical School in the fall. None of it would have possible, she stated, without the help of the Southern Scholarship Foundation. "The need is still there," said Moore. "This year alone, more than 1200 students had applied for 80 openings."Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Lynette Norris, June 19, 2013Mickey Moore, CEO of the Southern Scholarship Foundation, talks about how the SSF helps bright but “nancially needy students meet their college educational goals. By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. Madison County High School football coach Mike Coe has said in the past that if given a choice between a state championship and FCA camp he would choose FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) camp every time. While a championship is great, a trophy will last only a season. What his players learn at FCA camp will last them a lifetime. As the guest speaker at a recent Kiwanis meeting, Coe expounded on his philosophy again, explaining that while winning was great and the sense of accomplishment on the eld was important, what happened off the eld was even more so, and that was where FCA Camp made the biggest difference. It is an opportunity for the guys to come to know God, "get real" with each other, nd out what is going on in each other's homes and lives, and come closer together as team mates and as friends. "We're a young team (going into the next season)," said Coe, referring to the number of players who had graduated this past May. "But we don't use that as an excuse. We have guys who believe in each other, and who will ght for each other." Coe was joined by assistant coach Jim Ertzberger, whom he praised for going above and beyond in his role as assistant, and took the opportunity to thank all the volunteers for going above and beyond as well; providing help with transportation, picking the kids up for practices and even paying for A.C.T.'s and other things the players needed. Two MCHS football players, Eric Bright and Deontaye "Ollie" Oliver accompanied Coe and Ertzberger. "These two young men are representatives of what our program is about," said Coe. Bright, a fullback who will be in the 11th grade next year, is also a Take Stock in Children scholar who maintains a 3.0 GPA. Oliver, who plays halfback, maintains a 3.9 GPA and will be a senior next year. He is also in a dual-enrollment program at NFCC. Oliver spoke of his experience with FCA camp and explained how learning the principles of selflessness and sacrice "helps us become a better team, helps us as a family, and helps us learn more about Jesus and God." Bright also touched on the way FCA camp helped the Cowboys as a team. "We bond with our team mates when we hear their stories," he told the audience. "We learn how to build better relationships with God, how to build a better life, and how to be a better Christian." FCA Camp costs $165 per student. Individuals and community organizations, including Kiwanis, fund camp scholarships for those who don't have the money, and the Cowboys work to raise funds throughout the year so that everyone can have a chance to go. It could make a difference in their lives, Coe believes. Bright, who says he still thinks about his father, has built a good and loving relationship with his stepfather, and his mother, who prayed for him quite a lot when he was growing up. "Every time I see my mother's face, I tell her we're going to make it.'" he said. "I want to be a successful man and have a good family." It was, Coe stated, an illustration of applying the same Christian principles to being a good teammate and to being a good husband and father in later life. "Coaches are often judged on wins and losses," he said. "But I don't want to be judged by wins and losses but by what I taught these young men. That's why we do it. That's what makes us special. That's what sets us apart." www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 3, 2013Madison County Carrier € 3AAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY BAILEY MONUMENT CO 740252 !"#$%&% '(!')Subscribe Now!

That’s the sound of a satised consumer after a plate of Hickory Grove’s famous chicken pilau. (That’s chicken and rice to non-French readers.) That delightful dish is the centerpiece of a fund-raising event set for Saturday, July 13, at the Methodist Co-op Center on Hwy. 145. Folks can enjoy the pilaf along with slaw, pickles, green beans, tomato slices, and rolls beginning at 11:00 a.m. and running until 3:00 p.m. If just a bowl of it will suit you, then just a bowl is what you will get. You can dine in or take out. Dessert will be extra (this is a fundraiser, after all) and bake-sale items will be plentiful and scrumptious. Throughout the day, diners will enjoy bluegrass and choir music. Then about 1:00 p.m., Ab Townsend will take the auctioneer’s stand to auction a hand-made quilt donated by the Pine Tree Quilters. The dinners will be served for donations to helping build the new Methodist Youth Ranch near Pinetta. All proceeds will go toward constructing a chapel for the children at the ranch. This event is sponsored by the Hanson, Hickory Grove, Pinetta, and Rocky Springs United Methodist churches. Everyone is welcome. Wesley Family ReunionThe Wesley Family reunion will be held July 5 – 7. On July 5, there will be a sh fry at 5 p.m. at Jackie Williams’ house, which is located at 379 NW Chicken Rd in Madison. The next day, there will be a picnic/cookout at the United Methodist Community Center starting at noon and lasting until 6 p.m. VMCM is located at 135 NE Dill St. in Madison. On July 7, they will welcome senior Bishop Dr. John D. Wesley at the Magnolia Church of God in Unity in Madison. There will be a regular Sunday service starting at 11 a.m. and there will be lunch served afterwards. The location of the church is 283 SW Jackson Ave. in Madison. The honorable Dr. John D. Wesley was born the youngest of 12 children to the late brother Robert and Deaconess Mamie Wesley of Madison. Dr. Wesley began his religious training at an early age at the St. Paul Holiness Church in Nankin, Ga., where he was a member. Dr. Wesley was called upon to serve his country through the United States Army for over 20 years and retired in 1973. During this time period, Dr. Wesley proclaimed the Word of God in Austria, Korea, Vietnam, Germany and other countries. While in Germany, there was a lot of racial tension among the troops. Seizing the opportunity to spread God’s Word and to be an example for all men, Dr. Wesley intervened through ministry, which brought about harmony. Also, Dr. Wesley organized a gospel choir consisting of his six children and the troops, which initiated a fellowship among the other bases in Germany. In 1971, while stationed in Fulda, Germany, Sr. Bishop Wesley along with his wife, Evangelist Dr. Mary Wesley, was awarded with an Appreciation Certicate, that was issued by the General Commission of Chaplains in Washington, D.C. and was presented to the Wesley’s for the role they played in helping to quell racial unrest on the army post, and their overall involvement with the Chapel services. Dr. Wesley received his Bachelor of Religious Education from Heritage Bible College, Dunn, N.C., in 1978. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Shaw University in 1982. In 2007, Apex School of Theology bestowed upon him the Doctorate of Divinity Degree. In 1998, Dr. Wesley was installed as Senior Bishop of the Holy Bible Church of God. Dr. Wesley founded and was installed as the Senior Bishop of the One Accord Holiness Church in 2006. One Accord Holiness Church and Friendship Worldwide Church of God merged with True Word of God in the winter of 2012, thus, creating One Accord Worldwide Church of God, Incorporated, where Dr. John D. Wesley, a man after God’s own heart, serves as the presiding prelate. He lives by the motto, “May the works I do speak for me.”

It was a transformation about a year and a half in the making, by the reckoning of Kathy Cruce, Unit President of Auxiliary Unit 131. Everything from the cabinets and appliances in the kitchen, to the chairs, tables and furniture in other rooms, to the paint used on the walls had been donated. All the work, inside and out, had been done by American Legionnaires and Auxiliary Unit members of Greenville’s American Legion Post #131. With a lot of hard work and attention to detail, over time, the old NAPA Auto Parts store across from Haffye Hayes Park in Greenville became the American Legion Hall, home to American Legion Post #131, Commander Roy Scott. Monday evening, June 24, the Legionnaires and Auxiliary Unit members gathered to unveil their labor of love to the community and dedicate the building. A new sign over the front door welcomed everyone, at least one person from as far away as Texas, and marigolds planted beside the entrance added a bit of bold color against the slate blue walls. As the sun was setting across the park, Post #131 members stepped into formation beside the flagpole, where Vice Commander Arthur Paquette and Auxiliary Unit Sergeant at Arms Ann Paquette prepared to raise the colors. With the Pledge of Allegiance, an opening prayer, and a few remarks by Commander Scott, the new American Legion Hall was officially dedicated. Scott and Sergeant at Arms Jimmy Spradley officially opened Post #131. Inside, simple blue walls suggesting the freedom of the open sky set off the flags arranged in front of the meeting room as Scott introduced several distinguished guests: American Legion State Commander Art Schwabe, State Vice Commander Jay Conti, Sr., Northern Area Commander Mike Wolohan, 3rd District Commander Randall White, representatives from Congressman Steve Southerland’s office Lori Hutto (Deputy District Director) and Craig Deatherage (Veterans Affairs Liaison), U.S. Rep. Halsey Beshears, Greenville Mayor Kovacherick Arnold and Rev. Oliver Bradley, Veterans Services Officer for Jefferson and Madison Counties. Speakers for the evening talked about the purpose and responsibilities of all American Legion Posts, including rehabilitation of disabled veterans, care for those veterans still suffering from wounds of war, and care for their families. Hutto read aloud a letter from Congressman Steve Southerland, expressing his regrets at being unable to attend, congratulating Post #131 and thanking all veterans for their service and sacrifice. Installation of American Legion Post #131 officers (Commander Roy Scott, Vice Commander Arthur Paquette, Vice Commander Sammy Hutto, Adjutant Stuart MacIver, Chaplain Ronnie Scarboro, and Sergeant at Arms Jimmy Spradley), followed by installation of Auxiliary Unit #131 officers (President Kathy Cruce, Vice President Charlsie Gaston, Secretary Debe Scott, Treasurer Anita Burnett, Chaplain Janice Brown, Sergeant at Arms Ann Paquette, Historian Margaret Poppell and Membership Chairman Sonya Morris) rounded out the formal part of the evening, and the ceremony concluded with closing remarks by Schwabe and prayers by Commander Scott and Chaplain Scarboro. Members and guests enjoyed the very first meal served in the American Legion Hall that is now home to Post #131, a homecoming dinner to celebrate what had been accomplished, brought about by effort and diligence, as they look ahead to the work that remains – many, many years of serving American veterans in Greenville and surrounding areas – just as they have always done for many, many years in the past.

Submitted by Merv Mattair For the second year in a row, “Friday Night Under the Lights,” hosted by the Boyz to KINGS Family at Boot Hill Stadium, drew community members and leaders together for the Concerned Community Men (CCM) versus the Madison County Cowboys Flag Football Game. Like last year’s event, the June 7 “Friday Night Under the Lights” was another night to remember, a time when all of us, men and women of different races and backgrounds, gathered together to have fun and demonstrate their concern for and dedication to helping our young people. In addition to sponsoring the annual community ag football game, the Boyz to KINGS Family has also partnered with the Madison County Health Department to promote smarter, healthier lifestyle choices for our young people. On one of the stadium fences at Boot Hill, a large banner declared, “Abstinence is the New S.W.A.G. – Someone Who Achieves Goals.” We come together to go hard for and with our children and teens, while showing them that we can and will work together for the common good. The roster of football players and cheerleaders included mothers, fathers, schoolteachers, community leaders, politicians and ministers. We all gave of our time and athletic abilities to pull this off on the eld, while the Boyz to KINGS parents and youth served the fans hamburgers, hot dogs, funnel cakes and drinks. The Madison Boys Choir began the evening with the “Star Spangled Banner,” followed by Coach Mike Coe, the coaching staff, and the CCM team circling around the Madison County Cowboys while Minister Charles Colson delivered an earth-shaking prayer of unity and love. The atmosphere was set for a night of fun, and yes, we had plenty of it. Coach Jim Ertzberger of the Cowboys, Coach Terry Johnson of the CCM, and Referees A.D. Kinsey, WillyWilliams, Johnny “Bro Man” Woods and Rod Williams did a wonderful job keeping the game owing, while Minister Colson ruled the P.A. system, blessing us with some high-energy announcing. There were some moments when our high-energy crowd of fans went wild: when Cowboys receiver Quinton Herring cut back across the eld and ran about 70 yards for a touchdown, when CCM quarterback Marcus Hawkins connected with School Superintendent Doug Brown across the middle for a crucial rst down, when CCM cornerback WillyGamalero pulled a fourth down ag inches before the rst down was reached, and when the quickness of CCM running back Justin Hampton helped him gain a signicant rst down. CCM cheerleading captain Barbara Hewitt and her team delivered a powerful performance for our half time show, and the crowd of fans and parents rose to their feet for Denise Robinson’s speech, “Not This One.” Halftime also included a ceremony in remembrance of Mr. Eddie "Bro Joe" Knight, who sponsored a player in our inaugural ag football game last year. Unfortunately, Mr. Knight passed away after our season. In his honor, we retired the jersey of the player he had sponsored. We also recognized Marcus Hawkins as our 2013 Best O ffensive Player and Willy Gamalero as our 2013 Best Defensive Player. The Boyz to KINGS Family is honored to be able to serve our community and partner with others to help them carry out their true missions. If you would like to get your youth involved in the BTK Family, we currently have four slots available for 10to 12-year-old young men. Thanks to all the sponsors and supporters of this event, because it truly took a community to pull this off.

Kevin Anderson was dispatched to a burglary alarm at the Pinetta Market. Upon arrival, Anderson immediately noticed the front glass door was shattered. Anderson made contact with the owner of the store and learned that several cases of candy, beer and possibly lottery tickets were taken from the store. Corporal Anderson deployed Canine Max to track the potential suspects from the store. Canine Max successfully tracked the suspects over several fences and Anderson noted candy on the ground at each fence to match the candy that was taken from the store. Anderson eventually came to a fence that was not possible for Canine Max to get over and he returned to the store to view the video with the owner. The video confirmed that the two first shattered the glass door and one ran in and took two 18 packs of beer while the other staged himself as Lookout. The suspects each fled the scene with each carrying a case of beer. The store alarm malfunctioned and did not alert and the suspects later returned a second time, entered the store and took a case of Butterfingers, case of M&Ms, and attempted to take lottery tickets. The alarm alerted during the second entrance and the suspects fled on foot carrying the cases of candy. Cpl. Odom arrived on scene to assist Corporal Anderson as they returned to the area Canine Max had tracked. Canine Max again continued tracking the suspects to a residence. Contact was made with the owner of the residence, who immediately advised the suspects being sought were inside her house. Odom requested the suspects to come outside the residence and immediately recognized the physical characteristics and clothing to match that as seen on the video surveillance. The suspects were identified as Joseph Korey and Taylor Pleasant. Both subjects were placed under arrest and post Miranda confessed to the crime and some of the stolen candy was recovered. Korey, 17, of Madison, was arrested and charged with two counts of burglary, two counts of theft and underage possession of alcohol. Pleasant, 19, of Madison, was arrested and charged with one count of burglary, one count of accessory to burglary, theft, possession of stolen property and underage possession of alcohol.

The 2007 Impala refused to stop and accelerated in an attempt to elude Lauth. Lauth initiated a pursuit with blue lights and siren as the Impala continued to ee until losing control and crashing the Impala at the intersection of County Camp Road and Ammons Avenue. The driver quickly exited the Impala and ed away on foot. The vehicle owner was identied and stated that her husband was the only person to have the vehicle. The owner further described her husband and clothing to match that of the person eeing on foot after the crash. Responding units, Sgt. Boatwright, Deputy Kirkland and Madison Police Patrolman Smith set up a perimeter to capture the suspect. Soon thereafter, Patrolmen Smith heard noises in a wooded area just north of the crash site. The subject was located lying in the woods just off the roadway. The subject (driver) was identied as Winfort Kardell Bareld, 47, of Madison, and charged with eeing and eluding, driving with a suspended license (habitual), resisting arrest without violence and possession of marijuana less than 20 grams. Winfort Kardell BareldMan Arrested For Resisting Arrest and Fleeing and EludingNew trafc-control measures are planned for two City of Madison neighborhoods. Four-way stop signs will soon be installed by the city at the intersection of Northwest Crane Avenue and Northwest Marion Street near the construction site of the new Madison County Memorial Hospital and a new James Madison Charter School. Once the four-way stop signs are installed, city workers will mark them with ags or streamers to alert motorists. The signs will be installed on a trial basis. Additionally, speed limits will be lowered from 30 mph to 20 mph in the neighborhood north of Northeast Livingston Street and from 30 mph to 25 mph on a wider section of Northeast Fraleigh Drive. These lower speed limits are more conducive to the residential character of these streets; it makes them safer and consistent with similar neighboring streets in the city, Police Chief Gary Calhoun said. He had announced the changes in a report to the City Commission on June 11. We will monitor the changes and make any adjustments as needed, Calhoun said.

Photo by Jacob Bembry, July 1, 2013Madison City Hall To Be Closed Thursday In a June 25 speech at Georgetown University, President Obama announced a broad new federal mandate to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from electric power plants. The President will instruct federal regulators to apply the Clean Air Act to carbon dioxide issued from power plants. While the Presidents scheme will impose a massive new climate tax upon all consumers; we at TriCounty Electric Cooperative are especially concerned about this proposal because our members already spend disproportionately more on energy than other consumers across the country. The Presidents proposal will hit co-op served families and businesses here awfully hard, said John Martz, CEO SVEC. These regulations are costly, and they take autonomy from our co-op by challenging our ability to make decisions that govern our own infrastructure. The Presidents climate tax fails to take into account electric cooperatives existing efforts to integrate renewable energy into our power portfolios. Co-ops are at the forefront of energy efciency initiatives working hard to reduce the need to build expensive new power plants. Ultimately, electric cooperatives are about keeping electric bills affordable and providing underserved communities the power they need to improve their quality of life, said Martz. The Presidents proposal will make electric power more expensive, causing families and businesses to sacrice on top of all the other uncertainty in our national economy. Without question, electric bills will get bigger for the Americans who can least afford to pay them.

Being well hydrated is vitally important for us to function at our best. So how much water is enough? We can calculate the amount of pure filtered water we need daily by taking our bodyweight in pounds and dividing it by two. I weigh 205 therefore I should be drinking about 102.5 ounces of water. With 32 ounces per quart I would need a little over 3 quarts or 3 liters of water (a quart and a liter being fairly close to the same size). That is what we need a day to keep our cells functioning optimally. You may find it helpful to measure your water, or find some way of keeping track of how much you are drinking when you are trying to create this new habit. Juice, soda, and caffeinated beverages do not count, as they are dehydrating to our systems. If your urine is clear to very pale yellow, you are well hydrated. Congratulations! What kind of water is safest for us to drink? The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has reported that the biggest polluter of US rivers and streams is commercial agricultural chemicals that are sprayed onto crops, and then run off into the waterways. It is questionable whether other countries are much better. Is tap water really safe enough? If possible, install a wholehouse water filtration system (your welcome, companies that sell these systems) in order to filter out agricultural chemicals, as well as chlorine, heavy metals and other contaminants that are frequently found in water supplies, even in very large cities. If the water turns your tub green, you dont want to be drinking it, and you dont want to be bathing in it as your skin absorbs about 70 percent of those contaminants. If you live in an apartment or condominium, it may be easier to install tap and shower filters. The water tastes better, and makes for softer skin in the bath or shower. Filtering your own water is better than buying bottled, as many of the bottled waters are not contaminant free and are sometimes worse than tap water, AND the plastic bottles cause an enormous amount of garbage. I know I am not drinking enough water and need to adjust because it will not only help me function better but will also prob ably help with my being over weight. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 3, 2013 2A Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS National SecurityJoe Boyles Guest Columnist Health & Wellness Tipsfrom Frank Nathan, Executive Director Lake Park of MadisonDid You Know...I cannot allow the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg pass without comment. I love walking across old battleelds to appreciate the enormous life and death struggle that makes the ground hallo wed. Ive pr obably visited Gettysburg six times over the years. Each time, I gain new perspective on the great struggle that happened there in the rst three days of July 1863. Today marks the anniversary of the third day of the battle, which began on the July 1st. By this day, the day of Picketts Charge toward Cemetery Ridge, the die was cast. The lost opportunity on the rst day, particularly at the northern end of the battleeld, coupled with the failure to secure Little Round Top on the second day, spelled doom for the Army of Northern Virginia. Into the maelstrom, Lee ordered Longstreet to attack, led by George Picketts Virginia division. It was a slaughter as the infantry marched more than a mile across and up a eld into the waiting guns and cannon of the Army of the Potomac. In an hours time, the ower of Lees army was lost and the high tide of the Confederacy eclipsed. As brilliant as Robert E. Lee was, Ive always questioned his attacks into the North. He did this twice, rst in Maryland in the fall of 1862 and later, into southern Pennsylvania in the summer of 1863. He was very fortunate the rst time at Antietam, but his luck ran out at Gettysburg. It seems to me that Lee was at his best defending: in the Peninsula campaign; at Fredericksburg; at Chancellorsville; in the Overland campaign; and at Cold Harbor. His boldest offensive commander, Stonewall Jackson, was dead before the Pennsylvania campaign began. His best corps commander, James Longstreet, was a master of the defensive. Why risk so much by going on the offensive? Longstreet repeatedly warned him against this strategy. Although Lee was coming off a brilliant year of victories against the poorly led Army of the Potomac, he felt that the South was doomed by a defensive strategy fought on their own home ground. He convinced Jefferson Davis that the Souths only chance at victory would come from a knockout blow against the principle northern army on their home ground followed by public demoralization. Thus, the Pennsylvania campaign was begun in the aftermath of Hookers defeat at Chancellorsville. Lincoln changed commanders three days before the fateful engagement at Gettysburg, installing George Gordon Meade as the new commander. Meade was cautious but otherwise, a brilliant tactician. He would stay in command for the remainder of the war. On July 1st, lead elements of the two armies stumbled into each other at the small crossroads of Gettysburg, just seven miles north of the Mason-Dixon Line. The rst day belonged to the South although there was no knockout blow. Both commanders rushed their scattered troops forward to form a battle line shaped like an upside-down shhook south of Gettysburg. Lee was operating with a signicant deciency -he had lost touch with his cavalry commander, JEB Stuart. He did not understand the topography of the battleeld or disposition of forces because his eyes were missing. Meade ended up with the superior defensive position and had more troops at his disposal. The battle was on. More than 150,000 troops were engaged in the epic struggle. In three hot days of summer, one-third would fall. Repeatedly, troops of the Army of Northern Virginia rushed upward to their counterparts superior defensive positions: at Spanglers Spring; The Devils Den; Little Round Top, and Cemetery Ridge; only to be repulsed. The slaughter continued to the point of exhaustion. On Independence Day, Lee packed up what was left of his battered army and retreated south. On the same day, 700 miles away in western Mississippi, Pemberton surrendered the last Confederate outpost on the great river to Ulysses Grant, effectively cutting the South into two halves. July 4, 1863 was the death knell of the Confederacy. As a result of a brilliant string of victories in the west, Grant would be summoned to Washington by President Lincoln to command all northern armies to their nal victory. The battered townsfolk of Gettysburg, population 2300, would begin cleaning up an incredible mess of bodies, human and animal, left rotting in the summer heat. The public health threat was beyond comprehension. Four months later in mid-November, Abraham Lincoln would arrive to help dedicate the resting place of thousands of war dead. His short two minute speech is among the most famous in American history. These were the events that took place 150 years ago. They are among the most momentous in our history and helped shape the nation we know today. Gettysburg I love food. I love to think about it, read about it, write about it, cook and bake it, share it, and enthusiastically eat it. I am also one of those people that will moan while eating if its a food I especially love. I tell you this, because if we happen to eat together someday and you are a person easily embarrassed, youve been forewarned. For most of us, eating as adults is radically different than eating when we were children. As a child, I was a healthy eater and ate almost all foods with absolutely no regard for things like fat grams or calories. If it looked good or tasted good, I ate it. I remember coming home from school and asking that eternal question that moms everywhere are asked, Whats for supper? If I heard the words fried or gravy (which was so often the case) it would make my heart utter. Sadly, I learned since that the utter was most likely due to the large amounts of fat I was ingesting while clogging up my little arteries. Other things I learned were proper nutrition, healthier food choices, and the importance of giving up bad foods. Working with food as a profession can be a serious struggle if you come from a family with overactive fat genes combined with a serious love of food. Giving up certain foods I loved seemed to be the only solution if I was going to maintain a healthy body and continue to work in a profession I loved. So, I developed my list of Never Eat Foods. This list was created, not just because the foods were high in calories and fat, but because I also loved them so much that my portion control meter became non-existent when they were in front of me and self-control was nowhere to be found. Today, I dont remember all the foods on that list, but the ones I do still remember were, and still are, some of my favorites: peanut butter, ice cream, donuts, and potato salad. Ive grown since those days, both in age and understanding, and I know now that the foods themselves arent the villains I made them out to be. Im willing to also have more self-control, after depriving myself of foods I love for so long, so that I can enjoy my favorites again. Some of those forbidden foods nd themselves on my menu only once a year, because that is when they are at their best and waiting all year becomes worth the wait. Having a BLT at the peak of tomato season and a blackberry cobbler (with ice cream!) when berries are at their sweetest makes total sense to my taste buds as well as my calorie-counting brain. With July 4th approaching, my taste buds start craving that formally forbidden food, potato salad. Mayonnaise or mustard? Russet or red potatoes? My answer to those questions is yes! Potato salad has many versions and countless recipes and I have yet to meet one that I dont like. However, my newest potato salad recipe, is a favorite. This recipe, to me, is extraordinary, as was the woman who gave it to me. By the time I met her, she was done with cooking, but not done eating good food. She shared the recipe along with the story of her annual making of this potato salad that was always expected at their family gathering. I was honored to know her and to be given her recipe. If Im asked to bring potato salad to any gathering, this is the recipe I will look for and make. This year, if you happen to be the potato salad maker, or if you just need a good recipe to tuck into your les, please try this one. You can be certain that, along with enjoying my freedom in this country, Ill be free from my old mindset of bad foods and will be eating my share of potato salad right along with you. Have a happy and safe 4th of July! Blanches Potato Salad Im printing this recipe exactly as she gave it to me with my notes in parentheses. When I rst made this recipe I ended up adding more potatoes because it was saucier than I liked (highly likely my potatoes were smaller than what she used). Also, she mashed her potatoes, which I like. Feel free to chop if thats what you prefer. 6 medium regular white potatoes (I use about 9 medium russet) 6 or 7 hard boiled eggs 2 to 3 cups mayonnaise (I start with 1 1/2 cups) 1/2 cup yellow mustard 1 cup sweet pickles, chopped ne (do not use relish) 1 cup nely chopped celery heart 1 1/2 bunches chopped green onion (about 3/4 cup) 1 big jar chopped pimentos 2 tsp salt Boil potatoes in skin; when fork tender (meaning when you can easily pierce potatoes with a fork) drain and peel while potatoes are still warm. Mash potatoes and eggs and add salt (her potatoes werent smooth like actual mashed potatoes, but rather coarsely chopped with a potato masher). In a separate bowl, combine mayonnaise and mustard and then stir in remaining ingredients. Add more mayonnaise until desired texture. Remember, potato salad is highly perishable due to the mayonnaise and can cause food-borne illness. If you do take this to a potluck, dont let it sit out more than one hour. But I think this potato salad is so good that chances are it wont even last that long.

By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. In the years after World War II, with the Great Depression nally over and the economy booming, there were still many bright young high school students, especially in places like rural North Florida, who didnt even consider going to college. Even with full scholarships, they simply wouldnt have had the money for room and board, since scholarships typically covered only tuition and books. That began to change in the 1950s, when Dr. Mode L. Stone of Florida State University gave the commencement address at Altha High School, near his native Blountstown, in Calhoun County, Florida. Stone met two of the graduates, one of them the class valedictorian, and learned that they wanted to go to college, but couldnt afford the cost of housing even with full tuition scholarships. From that small beginning came the idea for the Southern Scholarship Foundation an idea to provide cooperative living arrangements where students could pool their money and work together, to make the dream of college education a reality for each of them. The rst cooperative living arrangement was for eleven young men in the abandoned Dale Mabry barracks with donated furniture and appliances. As the word of the arrangement spread, the idea caught on and soon a pool of contributors had managed to purchase the rst Scholarship House in 1955. Today, the Southern Scholarship Foundation houses nearly 450 students in 26 Scholarship Houses: 13 at Florida State University, three at Florida A & M University, nine at the University of Florida and one at Gulf Coast University in Ft. Myers, providing aid for deserving but nancially needy students in the form of rent-free housing. Funds for the maintenance, repair and operation of the houses comes from business leaders, corporations, charitable groups, individuals and civic organizations including Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions Clubs and Business and Professional Women of Florida. Mickey Moore, the current CEO of the Southern Scholarship Foundation, recently visited the Madison Rotary Club to speak about the Southern Scholarships ongoing mission to help bright, capable, hard-working high school graduates achieve their dream, and tell the Rotary members a little about how contributions and community support for the Foundation helped students realize educational goals that might have otherwise been unattainable. To give everyone an idea of how much the Southern Scholarship Foundation means to the students it serves, Moore read aloud from a letter the Foundation had recently received from a Scholarship House student. The young woman had recently earned two B.A. degrees and was hoping to enter the Florida State University Medical School in the fall. None of it would have possible, she stated, without the help of the Southern Scholarship Foundation. The need is still there, said Moore. This year alone, more than 1200 students had applied for 80 openings.Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Lynette Norris, June 19, 2013Mickey Moore, CEO of the Southern Scholarship Foundation, talks about how the SSF helps bright but nancially needy students meet their college educational goals. By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. Madison County High School football coach Mike Coe has said in the past that if given a choice between a state championship and FCA camp he would choose FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) camp every time. While a championship is great, a trophy will last only a season. What his players learn at FCA camp will last them a lifetime. As the guest speaker at a recent Kiwanis meeting, Coe expounded on his philosophy again, explaining that while winning was great and the sense of accomplishment on the eld was important, what happened off the eld was even more so, and that was where FCA Camp made the biggest difference. It is an opportunity for the guys to come to know God, get real with each other, nd out what is going on in each others homes and lives, and come closer together as team mates and as friends. Were a young team (going into the next season), said Coe, referring to the number of players who had graduated this past May. But we dont use that as an excuse. We have guys who believe in each other, and who will ght for each other. Coe was joined by assistant coach Jim Ertzberger, whom he praised for going above and beyond in his role as assistant, and took the opportunity to thank all the volunteers for going above and beyond as well; providing help with transportation, picking the kids up for practices and even paying for A.C.T.s and other things the players needed. Two MCHS football players, Eric Bright and Deontaye Ollie Oliver accompanied Coe and Ertzberger. These two young men are representatives of what our program is about, said Coe. Bright, a fullback who will be in the 11th grade next year, is also a Take Stock in Children scholar who maintains a 3.0 GPA. Oliver, who plays halfback, maintains a 3.9 GPA and will be a senior next year. He is also in a dual-enrollment program at NFCC. Oliver spoke of his experience with FCA camp and explained how learning the principles of selflessness and sacrice helps us become a better team, helps us as a family, and helps us learn more about Jesus and God. Bright also touched on the way FCA camp helped the Cowboys as a team. We bond with our team mates when we hear their stories, he told the audience. We learn how to build better relationships with God, how to build a better life, and how to be a better Christian. FCA Camp costs $165 per student. Individuals and community organizations, including Kiwanis, fund camp scholarships for those who dont have the money, and the Cowboys work to raise funds throughout the year so that everyone can have a chance to go. It could make a difference in their lives, Coe believes. Bright, who says he still thinks about his father, has built a good and loving relationship with his stepfather, and his mother, who prayed for him quite a lot when he was growing up. Every time I see my mothers face, I tell her were going to make it. he said. I want to be a successful man and have a good family. It was, Coe stated, an illustration of applying the same Christian principles to being a good teammate and to being a good husband and father in later life. Coaches are often judged on wins and losses, he said. But I dont want to be judged by wins and losses but by what I taught these young men. Thats why we do it. Thats what makes us special. Thats what sets us apart. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 3, 2013 Madison County Carrier 3AAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY BAILEY MONUMENT CO 740252 btnbfrnbtnfr bbtnr bnrrrrbfrr !fr"#$%&% r'ft(b!bf')Subscribe Now!

Thats the sound of a satised consumer after a plate of Hickory Groves famous chicken pilau. (Thats chicken and rice to non-French readers.) That delightful dish is the centerpiece of a fund-raising event set for Saturday, July 13, at the Methodist Co-op Center on Hwy. 145. Folks can enjoy the pilaf along with slaw, pickles, green beans, tomato slices, and rolls beginning at 11:00 a.m. and running until 3:00 p.m. If just a bowl of it will suit you, then just a bowl is what you will get.

Throughout the day, diners will enjoy bluegrass and choir music. Then about 1:00 p.m., Ab Townsend will take the auctioneers stand to auction a hand-made quilt donated by the Pine Tree Quilters.

This event is sponsored by the Hanson, Hickory Grove, Pinetta, and Rocky Springs United Methodist churches. Everyone is welcome. Wesley Family ReunionThe Wesley Family reunion will be held July 5 7. On July 5, there will be a sh fry at 5 p.m. at Jackie Williams house, which is located at 379 NW Chicken Rd in Madison. The next day, there will be a picnic/cookout at the United Methodist Community Center starting at noon and lasting until 6 p.m. VMCM is located at 135 NE Dill St. in Madison. On July 7, they will welcome senior Bishop Dr. John D. Wesley at the Magnolia Church of God in Unity in Madison. There will be a regular Sunday service starting at 11 a.m. and there will be lunch served afterwards. The location of the church is 283 SW Jackson Ave. in Madison. The honorable Dr. John D. Wesley was born the youngest of 12 children to the late brother Robert and Deaconess Mamie Wesley of Madison. Dr. Wesley began his religious training at an early age at the St. Paul Holiness Church in Nankin, Ga., where he was a member. Dr. Wesley was called upon to serve his country through the United States Army for over 20 years and retired in 1973. During this time period, Dr. Wesley proclaimed the Word of God in Austria, Korea, Vietnam, Germany and other countries. While in Germany, there was a lot of racial tension among the troops. Seizing the opportunity to spread Gods Word and to be an example for all men, Dr. Wesley intervened through ministry, which brought about harmony. Also, Dr. Wesley organized a gospel choir consisting of his six children and the troops, which initiated a fellowship among the other bases in Germany. In 1971, while stationed in Fulda, Germany, Sr. Bishop Wesley along with his wife, Evangelist Dr. Mary Wesley, was awarded with an Appreciation Certicate, that was issued by the General Commission of Chaplains in Washington, D.C. and was presented to the Wesleys for the role they played in helping to quell racial unrest on the army post, and their overall involvement with the Chapel services. Dr. Wesley received his Bachelor of Religious Education from Heritage Bible College, Dunn, N.C., in 1978. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Shaw University in 1982. In 2007, Apex School of Theology bestowed upon him the Doctorate of Divinity Degree. In 1998, Dr. Wesley was installed as Senior Bishop of the Holy Bible Church of God. Dr. Wesley founded and was installed as the Senior Bishop of the One Accord Holiness Church in 2006. One Accord Holiness Church and Friendship Worldwide Church of God merged with True Word of God in the winter of 2012, thus, creating One Accord Worldwide Church of God, Incorporated, where Dr. John D. Wesley, a man after Gods own heart, serves as the presiding prelate. He lives by the motto, May the works I do speak for me.

It was a transformation about a year and a half in the making, by the reckoning of Kathy Cruce, Unit President of Auxiliary Unit 131. Everything from the cabinets and appliances in the kitchen, to the chairs, tables and furniture in other rooms, to the paint used on the walls had been donated. All the work, inside and out, had been done by American Legionnaires and Auxiliary Unit members of Greenvilles American Legion Post #131. With a lot of hard work and attention to detail, over time, the old NAPA Auto Parts store across from Haffye Hayes Park in Greenville became the American Legion Hall, home to American Legion Post #131, Commander Roy Scott. Monday evening, June 24, the Legionnaires and Auxiliary Unit members gathered to unveil their labor of love to the community and dedicate the building. A new sign over the front door welcomed everyone, at least one person from as far away as Texas, and marigolds planted beside the entrance added a bit of bold color against the slate blue walls. As the sun was setting across the park, Post #131 members stepped into formation beside the flagpole, where Vice Commander Arthur Paquette and Auxiliary Unit Sergeant at Arms Ann Paquette prepared to raise the colors. With the Pledge of Allegiance, an opening prayer, and a few remarks by Commander Scott, the new American Legion Hall was officially dedicated. Scott and Sergeant at Arms Jimmy Spradley officially opened Post #131. Inside, simple blue walls suggesting the freedom of the open sky set off the flags arranged in front of the meeting room as Scott introduced several distinguished guests: American Legion State Commander Art Schwabe, State Vice Commander Jay Conti, Sr., Northern Area Commander Mike Wolohan, 3rd District Commander Randall White, representatives from Congressman Steve Southerlands office Lori Hutto (Deputy District Director) and Craig Deatherage (Veterans Affairs Liaison), U.S. Rep. Halsey Beshears, Greenville Mayor Kovacherick Arnold and Rev. Oliver Bradley, Veterans Services Officer for Jefferson and Madison Counties. Speakers for the evening talked about the purpose and responsibilities of all American Legion Posts, including rehabilitation of disabled veterans, care for those veterans still suffering from wounds of war, and care for their families. Hutto read aloud a letter from Congressman Steve Southerland, expressing his regrets at being unable to attend, congratulating Post #131 and thanking all veterans for their service and sacrifice. Installation of American Legion Post #131 officers (Commander Roy Scott, Vice Commander Arthur Paquette, Vice Commander Sammy Hutto, Adjutant Stuart MacIver, Chaplain Ronnie Scarboro, and Sergeant at Arms Jimmy Spradley), followed by installation of Auxiliary Unit #131 officers (President Kathy Cruce, Vice President Charlsie Gaston, Secretary Debe Scott, Treasurer Anita Burnett, Chaplain Janice Brown, Sergeant at Arms Ann Paquette, Historian Margaret Poppell and Membership Chairman Sonya Morris) rounded out the formal part of the evening, and the ceremony concluded with closing remarks by Schwabe and prayers by Commander Scott and Chaplain Scarboro. Members and guests enjoyed the very first meal served in the American Legion Hall that is now home to Post #131, a homecoming dinner to celebrate what had been accomplished, brought about by effort and diligence, as they look ahead to the work that remains many, many years of serving American veterans in Greenville and surrounding areas just as they have always done for many, many years in the past.

Submitted by Merv Mattair For the second year in a row, Friday Night Under the Lights, hosted by the Boyz to KINGS Family at Boot Hill Stadium, drew community members and leaders together for the Concerned Community Men (CCM) versus the Madison County Cowboys Flag Football Game. Like last years event, the June 7 Friday Night Under the Lights was another night to remember, a time when all of us, men and women of different races and backgrounds, gathered together to have fun and demonstrate their concern for and dedication to helping our young people. In addition to sponsoring the annual community ag football game, the Boyz to KINGS Family has also partnered with the Madison County Health Department to promote smarter, healthier lifestyle choices for our young people. On one of the stadium fences at Boot Hill, a large banner declared, Abstinence is the New S.W.A.G. Someone Who Achieves Goals. We come together to go hard for and with our children and teens, while showing them that we can and will work together for the common good. The roster of football players and cheerleaders included mothers, fathers, schoolteachers, community leaders, politicians and ministers. We all gave of our time and athletic abilities to pull this off on the eld, while the Boyz to KINGS parents and youth served the fans hamburgers, hot dogs, funnel cakes and drinks. The Madison Boys Choir began the evening with the Star Spangled Banner, followed by Coach Mike Coe, the coaching staff, and the CCM team circling around the Madison County Cowboys while Minister Charles Colson delivered an earth-shaking prayer of unity and love. The atmosphere was set for a night of fun, and yes, we had plenty of it. Coach Jim Ertzberger of the Cowboys, Coach Terry Johnson of the CCM, and Referees A.D. Kinsey, WillyWilliams, Johnny Bro Man Woods and Rod Williams did a wonderful job keeping the game owing, while Minister Colson ruled the P.A. system, blessing us with some high-energy announcing. There were some moments when our high-energy crowd of fans went wild: when Cowboys receiver Quinton Herring cut back across the eld and ran about 70 yards for a touchdown, when CCM quarterback Marcus Hawkins connected with School Superintendent Doug Brown across the middle for a crucial rst down, when CCM cornerback WillyGamalero pulled a fourth down ag inches before the rst down was reached, and when the quickness of CCM running back Justin Hampton helped him gain a signicant rst down. CCM cheerleading captain Barbara Hewitt and her team delivered a powerful performance for our half time show, and the crowd of fans and parents rose to their feet for Denise Robinsons speech, Not This One. Halftime also included a ceremony in remembrance of Mr. Eddie "Bro Joe" Knight, who sponsored a player in our inaugural ag football game last year. Unfortunately, Mr. Knight passed away after our season. In his honor, we retired the jersey of the player he had sponsored. We also recognized Marcus Hawkins as our 2013 Best O ffensive Player and Willy Gamalero as our 2013 Best Defensive Player.
