The Madison City Commission set the tentative millage rate for Fiscal Year 2013-2014 at seven mills at their Monday, July 15, meeting. City Manager Tim Bennett briey discussed the budget with the commissioners and explained that the city would work with the higher number of seven mills. He expects the rolled back millage rate to be set at 6.1715. Based on the city's rolled back millage rate, they will be able to generate the same collection of ad taxes they sought in 2012-2013.

Florida's jobless rate dropped again in May, down to 7.1 percent, 0.1 percentage point lower than April's 7.2 percent and the lowest it's been since September 2008, when it was 7.0 percent. For the third consecutive month also, the state's rate was lower than the national rate, which was 7.6 percent. Jefferson and Madison counties, however, saw their rates increase slightly, from 5.2 and 8.4 percents in April to 5.4 and 8.5 percents in May respectively. So indicate the latest gures from Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (FDEO), released last Friday, June 21. The improving unemployment situation statewide gave the Governor Rick Scott cause to celebrate his policies. "Each month we continue to distance ourselves from the national unemployment rate," Scott said. "It's clear we are succeeding in growing opportunities for Florida families to pursue the American Dream. While Florida communities have experienced some incredible successes, we'll continue working tirelessly to provide jobs to families across the Sunshine State." Statewide, the 7.1 percent represents 671,000 jobless Floridians out of a labor force of 9,427,000 not counting individuals who have given up the search for work or who are underemployed or employed part time. The FDEO reports Florida's seasonally adjusted total nonagricultural employment was 7,511,200 in May, a decrease of 6,200 jobs over the month. Seasonally adjusted means the numbers have been purged of seasonal and other factors that could skew the results. "The number of jobs in the state was up 122,500 in May from a year ago, an increase of 1.7," the FDEO states. "Nationally, the number of jobs was up 1.6 percent over the year." May was the 34th consecutive month showing positive annual job growth after the state lost jobs for more than three straight years, Floridas Jobless Rate Continues To Decline(Rates In Madison, Jefferson Up Slightly)By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc.

In the Bill of Rights, those rst ten amendments to the Constitution introduced by our namesake James Madison in the rst Congress (1789), there are a number of legal protections afforded all Americans. They are contained primarily in three amendments, 5 through 7. Among these protections are indictment by Grand Jury; double jeopardy; self-incrimination; due process; trial by an impartial jury; confront accusers; legal representation; and protection for local courts. These are centuries-old common law (applicable to all) protections that really began with the Magna Carta in 1215. Over centuries of trial and error, English law evolved and became the great standard for America's rule of law. It is a model for the world. Before this, law was absolute and arbitrary. In the Book of Esther, we learn that King Xerxes was an absolute monarch. To approach the king without his concurrence was a capital offense, punishable by death. That's pretty extreme by 21st Century standards. Thank goodness those days are behind us. The idea here is that in the courtroom, justice is blind; there are no favorites; the factual evidence following a set of established standards will lead a jury of our peers to render a judgment of guilt or innocence. This is very much different than the "court of public opinion" where there are literally no rules. You know, if you stop and think about it, a lynch mob was an early manifestation of the court-of-publicopinion. On the spur of a moment, a bunch of citizens gathered, often fortied by strong drink, and decided on the guilt or innocence of someone based on passion and hearsay. The event frequently ended with a rope over a tree limb and the accused dead. Isn't that what happened at Rosewood in what, 1923? A mob of angry (drunk?) white men, acting on rumor and innuendo, destroyed a town of Black folks killing how many? One of the saddest things about the Martin-Zimmerman affair in Central Florida is that George Zimmerman was convicted in the court-of-publicopinion long before he went to trial. He was convicted by the media led by race-baiters. They essentially "lynched" Zimmerman, in a 21st Century way. Then the politicians got involved, starting at the top with the president. I will guarantee you that nothing good comes from political interference in a criminal case. We didn't elect them for that purpose and they need to stay out of the way and let the criminal justice system work as it is designed to work. One of the reasons I don't get invested with these sensational cases (Jody Arias, Casey Anthony, etc.) is that it isn't any of my business. It only really matters to the court ofcers, and ultimately, the judgment of the jury. I don't waste my time following the proceedings. I've got better things to do. Maybe if I was in law enforcement or a lawyer, I would feel differently, but I'm not, so I don't. It was all well and ne for the media to "convict" George Zimmerman; to manipulate tapes to iname public opinion; or to withhold evidence, but in the end, it didn't really matter. In the end, it came down to what was allowed in that courtroom. There are rules for evidence. A jury was impaneled. They listened to the evidence and sworn testimony. The prosecutors realized they had lost their murder two case and asked after-the-fact for manslaughter which the judge permitted. Even that wasn't enough to convict George Zimmerman. He walked. I learned this lesson in the O.J. Simpson criminal trial twenty years ago in Southern California. Based on the evidence, I thought O.J. was guilty, but it didn't matter what I thought. It only mattered to the jury and they acquitted him. Case closed. Many of us disagree with the verdict but it doesn't matter whether we disagree or not. Only what went on in the courtroom mattered. Read the Constitution: those protections afforded George Zimmerman protect you and me as well. The case isn't over. The Justice Department is considering a civil rights case; I predict they will pass on it, no matter how partisan Eric Holder is. Lawsuits are being led. I don't think Zimmerman will be tried for wrongful death, because he doesn't have any money for the law sharks to circle. The insurance companies will pay, and maybe even eventually, NBC for doctoring the 9-1-1 tapes. George Zimmerman is a marked man, so in that sense, he isn't free. He felt he needed a rearm for self-protection before Trayvon Martin was fatally shot. He probably needs one today, more than before. He had better move to some place where he can "get lost." Eventually, the heat of passion will die down and we will move on, hopefully sooner than later.We have discussed wh -y it is important to consume adequate water, how much to drink each day, and how to improve the quality of the water we drink, but we haven't yet discussed when to drink water, and why this matters. Drink a big glass of room-temperature water about half-anhour before meals, earlier if you insist on ice-cold water, and if you have digestive difficulties or heartburn, try adding a capful of raw apple cider vinegar or the juice of some lemon to that water. Try not to drink water with meals, as this dilutes the digestive juices too much making it harder for them to do their job. Then drink more water a couple of hours after eating. In summary, drink between meals rather than with meals. Water is best at room temperature rather than ice cold, as our bodies have to warm up cold water before it can be used. Although some say that cold water requires more calories to heat up so it may be more helpful in weight loss. But If you drink a large amount of cold water, and then jiggle your belly around, you will hear and feel the water sloshing around, whereas if you drink a large amount of room temperature water it is immediately assimilated into the body and you won't get that sloshing sound. Hot water in the form of herbal (non-caffeinated) teas are also fine. Remember that caffeinated beverages and alcohol do not count as water as they are dehydrating. Quality milk, bone broths and freshsqueezed juice may be healthy, but they won't rehydrate you either, so only count water in your hydration efforts! I personally find that I get a headache when I am dehydrated, so when I get that feeling at the temples of my head where my headaches start, I drink lots of water, and the headache goes away. We need to be proactive and drink water regularly between meals.www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 17, 2013 2A € Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS National SecurityJoe Boyles Guest Columnist Did You Know...trial By JuryTomatoes, tomatoes everywhere! At least that's what I want when I plant my tomato garden every year. This year I planted new varieties that I have not grown before and some I had never heard of until this spring: Paul Robeson, Purple Cherokee, Costoluto Genovese and Juliet to name a few. My tomato garden is, by far, the biggest garden I plant, and the one with the most variety. The first reason is that not much tastes better to me than a homegrown tomato, plucked from a plant in my own backyard and it's absolutely essential for my annual (okay, sometimes biannual) BLT. Another reason is because I absolutely love tasting new varieties; will they be sweet, acidic, tart? However, probably the largest reason of all I grow so many tomatoes, are for their versatility in cooking. You can use them fresh in salads or slice them up for the table. You can cook them down into sauce and make pizza, spaghetti, chili, or casseroles. You can broil tomatoes whole, or chop them up and add them to baked recipes; Not to mention canning, where you can preserve them whole, juiced, sauced, or even made into a jam (which is, by the way, absolutely stunning if you use yellow tomatoes). And what tomato lover could let summer pass without a plate of fried green tomatoes? Obviously I could go on and on about tomatoes, but I will stop so that I can share a tomato recipe with you that I made and fell head-over-heels in love with. The recipe is for a Tomato Tart. I have eaten this before as Tomato Pie' where it was prepared with a custard base and a heavy layer of mayonnaise, but I really fell in love with this version because instead of using the mayonnaise or cream and eggs, it was simply tomatoes and herbs in pastry and the freshness of the tomatoes really came through. It makes a great light' supper with a glass of iced tea. Enjoy the tomato season while it lasts! TOMATO TART I made this in a nine inch tart pan with a removable bottom, but there's no need to buy a special pan, simply use a nine-inch pie pan. Tart Dough 1 cups flour tsp salt 9 TB butter, chilled and cubed 1 egg, beaten 2 to 3 TB cold water Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix the flour and salt together (omit the salt if you're using salted butter). Using a pastry blender, cut butter into the flour until the mixture is crumbly. In a small bowl, combine egg and 2 TB of the cold water. Stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture; stir until the dough holds together. If the dough seems dry, add the additional TB of water. Roll the dough on a lightly floured surface so that it is large enough to cover the bottom and up the sides of the pan you're using. (An easy way to know how big to roll your dough is to place your pan upside down on dough and make sure you have 2-inches of dough all around the pan). Gently press the dough into the pan and allow it to rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Tart Filling 2 to 3 TB Dijon mustard 2 to 3 large toma toes 2 TB olive oil chopped fresh herbs (basil, oregano, dill, parsley, chives, etc.) salt and pepper to taste optional: fresh mozzarella or goat cheese Spread the mustard in an even layer on the crust and allow it to sit for a few minutes to dry out. (Hopefully you're reading ahead because I spread my mustard on before allowing my dough to rest, so both my waiting periods are combined). Slice tomatoes and place them over the mustard in a single layer. Drizzle olive oil over the top of tomatoes. Sprinkle the amount of herbs, salt, and pepper you want on top. Add cheese if using and bake about 30 minutes or until the dough is nicely browned and the tomatoes are tender. If using cheese, make sure it is nicely browned as well. Allow to cool about five minutes before eatingif you can! I like it at room temperature as well. But if there are leftovers (really?) be sure to refrigerate because of the cheese.Finding Love In A Tomato Tart Rose Klein ColumnistFrank NathanExecutive Director Lake Park of Madison Health & Wellness Tips Searching For Ambrosia

Ms. Orsborn decided to take matters into her own hands after calling 311 for the last time. Witnesses report that she stepped outside with a diaper pail in one hand and a lighter in the other. She called to the rework offenders saying, "You want to see reworks, here you go!" She then began pulling soiled diapers from the pail, set them on re, and hurled them at the group of men who were drunk and shooting bottle rockets at each other. No injuries were sustained, although several men were reported to have fecal matter on their faces. No charges were pressed.Man Attacked By Fox While On ToiletIn London, a 49year old man was attacked in his home as he was sitting on the toilet. Anthony Schoeld claims a fox burst into his bathroom and chased him into the living room. He said, "I didn't even have time to wipe myself." The fox embedded its teeth into Mr. Schoeld's arm and attacked his cat as well. Mr. Schoeld then dragged the fox outside and was able to nally free himself. He was later treated at a hospital for cuts and bruises. His cat survived as well, but now refuses to enter the living room.New Television Channel For Mans Best FriendIn the US, satellite TV provider, DirecTV will soon be carrying the rst 24-hour channel geared towards dogs.

Saying that the changes to the Florida Retirement System in the last scal quarter had been a "kick in the pants" for Madison County's FY 20122013 budget, Madison County Court Clerk Tim Sanders matter-of-factly delivered even graver news for Madison's 2013-2014 FY Budget: a projected shortfall of over $860,000. Citing it as another example of unfunded state mandates that plague small counties, Sanders and the commissioners wondered aloud whether there was anything elected representatives in Tallahassee could do for the county; one commissioner noted that Madison's State Representative, Halsey Beshears, had already told him that there was "nothing he could do about it." Another added, "That's the same thing he said when we lost our MCI inmate labor: he just said, Deal with it.'" Commissioners pondered other sources that might be able to intervene on behalf of not only Madison, but also other small, rural counties with cashstrapped budgets. What about the Florida Association of Counties? What about the Small County Association? What about meeting with individual legislators to let them know how hard this was hitting the small rural counties? "It may not change things right now, but it'll send a message for next scal year," said Sanders. Commissioner Ronnie Moore agreed, adding, "We need to go beyond our legislators. We need to let everyone know how this is affecting small counties." At the heart of the county's budget woes for the next scal year is a statelegislated increase in the amount that counties and other state or local government entities must pay into the Florida Retirement System for all of their employees. The new FRS requirements took effect July 1, 2013. While larger counties with larger tax bases and bigger reserve funds could absorb the blow much better, small rural counties like Madison, with budgets balanced on the head of a pin, strained reserve funds already drawn down by other crises, a signicant portion of its population base living close to or under the poverty line and an unemployment rate that is higher than state average, are left scraping for ways to cope. The board discussed ways to raise revenue and asked if the county had ever had ever used the maximum millage rate of 10 mils. "We were at 10 mils forever," Sanders replied. "Until property values skyrocketed 2006 and 2007, then we adjusted down." After the housing bubble burst and the recession hit in 2008, the millage rate began gradually creeping back up toward 10 mils. However, even if the county were to go back up to 10 mils for the next scal year, it would still face a shortfall of about $600,000. "And that's assuming that insurance doesn't go up," said Commissioner Justin Hamrick. Since the new requirements kicked in July 1, the county is already looking at a shortfall for the nal quarter of FY 2012-2013. The county can draw in some revenue some its small reserves, but Sanders warned that it was just enough to get through October, November, and December. After much subdued discussion of the situation, the board agreed to hold a budget workshop July 17-18 to see what could be done. "Hopefully by the next meeting, we'll have some recommendations for the insurance committee," said Sanders. "It all looks like gloom and doom," he added. "But we'll get through this. We do it every year."County Commission: Next FY Budget Faces Nearly $840,000 Shortfall

By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc. On the west side of Four Freedoms Park stands a tree and a bench, which honor a former resident of Madison. Bernard Wilson was not just any resident of the fair city. Originally from Bainbridge, Ga., he came to Madison from Wakulla County to serve as the manager for Florida Power. He also served as a Madison city commissioner, as the local civil defense director and as Veterans Service officer. He was also chosen as Madison County’s Citizen of the Year. In his role as the Veterans Service officer, Wilson shined. A World War II veteran who was on a bomber plane in the South Pacific near the close of the war, he made sure that every patriotic holiday was observed and became a shining example for Veterans Service officers that followed in his place. Each year, Wilson would make sure that the flags of all 50 states, as well as the American flag, were on prominent display at the Courthouse. He made sure that several monuments were erected in the city, noting the service of men and women in different wars. When Bernard and Betty Wilson began having health problems, their son, David, then the head football coach at Lincoln High School, found many of the columns that his father had written over the years. Bernard had written a column on military and veterans affairs. From time to time, he would highlight a different veteran from Madison County who had done something significant in the battle to keep the United States free. On occasion, David and Bernard would come to the office, so David could look through the bound copies for his father’s stories. David began looking for information on the Bicentennial Tree that his father had planted in 1976. He went to the park to see the tree and discovered that it was not marked anywhere in the park. His father’s memory was failing at the time so he could not tell him where it was. David found the photo of the tree being planted in an old newspaper. Looking at the background of the photo, he was able to pinpoint the tree and its location in the park. David was able to erect two benches in honor of his late parents and a marker, which notes the location of the Bicentennial Tree, planted in Jan. 1976. The bench honoring both his parents is inscribed with 1 Corinthians 16:13-14, which reads: “Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love.” (New King James Version) Betty Wilson stood by Bernard for over 50 years, brave and strong and loving him. The bench which was placed in honor of Bernard reads: “Family, Faith, Community, Country,” which were all near and dear to Bernard’s heart. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 17, 2013Madison County Carrier € 5AAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY Benches And Tree Pay Homage To Late Bernard And Betty Wilson Greene Publishing, Inc.

www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 17, 2013 6A € Madison County CarrierAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY Review: Haunted Big Bend FloridaBy Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc.With its history lled with stories of ghosts at such locations as Stonewall Cemetery in Lee, the Drew Mansion in Ellaville and the Wardlaw-Smith-Goza house in Madison, the rst thing that a Madison Countian may notice when picking up Haunted Big Bend Florida is that Madison County didn't make it in the book. The next thing one may notice, however is that plenty of counties around Madison did, including neighboring Madison County. A good portion of the book is dedicated to the places that are alleged to be haunted in Jefferson County. Author Alan Brown takes the readers on a tour of the town, which was dubbed by ABC News as "The Most Haunted Small Town in America" and by PBS as "The South's Most Haunted Small Town." History is woven into the stories that Brown tells of East Dogwood Street, the Monticello Opera House, the John Denham Bed and Breakfast House (which is featured prominently on its cover with a full moon hanging over its cupola), the Avera-Clark House, the Old Jefferson County Jail, the old Jefferson County High School, the Meeting Oak, the Daffodale House and the Palmer House. Along with histories of each location, which is all too brief for my tastes, are the tales of ghastly ghosts and friendly spirits, such as John H. Perkins, who built the Opera House. This writer must admit that he doesn't believe the stories of ghosts that Brown relates throughout the book, but he does find them entertaining and amusing. The book is light and breezy and easy to read. In addition to the tales of Monticello, Brown also writes about sites in Tallahassee (such as the Velda Mounds and Florida State University) being haunted, along with sites from Apalachicola, Chipley, Franklin County, Gadsden County, Port St. Joe, Quincy, Sumatra, Washington County and Wewahitchka. The book is available in paperback at local bookstores for $19.99 or is available online at www.historypress.net. Haunted Big Bend Florida also retails as an e-book through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple's I-bookstore, Google's e-bookstore and Overdrive. A Tree Grows in Madison...AgainBy Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.Actually, it's a century plant, but it's easily as tall as any trees in the vicinity. Owner Carl Dean reckons that it is pr obably about 35 feet tall at this point. This makes a total of two known century plants in bloom in Madison County. The other one is located at the Days Inn on South SR 53 near I-10, and was featured in the Wednesday, June 26 edition of the Madison County Carrier. The plant in Dean's backyard is one he transplanted from Cherry Lake about 20 years ago. At the time, it was a small thing, only about a foot high. Now, the leaves at the base reach almost ve feet in height and are about ve feet across. The central stalk began growing out of the center about two months ago, and after it reached its maximum height, it began blooming. Once a century plant blooms and disperses its seeds, its life cycle is complete. The central "mother plant" begins dying off, but often there are several "pups" sprouting up around the mother plant that will live on, grow to maturity, and when they sense that conditions are right for optimal seed dispersal, they too will send up stalks and bloom. This is the case with Dean's plant. The big leaves around the base of the stalk are already beginning to turn yellow and brown in places, but there are several new shoots sprouting up around the central mother plant. After they reach ten years old, they will begin their wait. No one knows how many years that will be, but when the conditions are just right, they too will send up the giant stalks, bloom, disperse their seeds and die. And so, the cycle begins anew.

By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc. Aspecial camp was recently held called “BUDDY Camp.” BUDDY stands for Building Understanding of Diversity with Dynamic Youth. Seven of the children who attended the camp have autism. They blended in with eight other children. None of the families who are touched by autism had to pay for the camp because of the Artists Touched by Autism Event at North Florida Community College, the walk held in April and generous donations from the community. The camp was a typical overnight camp which targeted skill sets for autistic and special needs youth. Because of the circumstances, parents had to attend the camp as well. Leslie McLeod, who helped get the camp started, said, “I would like to say ‘thank you’ to all the community for their support. This could not have been possible without them. This made a huge impact on our children’s lives. They built lifelong friendships. They were able to have the same opportunity as other children.” McLeod said that the walk and the art exhibit will be annual events, so that the Autism Support Kids (ASK) group can raise funds to send children to camp every year. Madison Country Club Offers Five New Membership OptionsThe Board of Directors of the Madison Country Club recently unanimously approved five new membership packages at their recent Annual Meeting. “I could not be more pleased with the new membership offerings now available at the club,” said Ted Ensminger, Director of Sales and Event Development at MCC. “We now have a membership package for just about everyone. For those who do not play golf, for those who are looking for an excellent social atmosphere, for those who enjoy tennis, even for our young people who are just getting exposed to golf,” Equity Golf Membership The highest level of participation at Madison Country Club is called an Equity Golf Membership. It includes ownership of the club, full access and privileges, as well as the opportunity for the member to be involved in voting on club issues or the opportunity of serving on the board of directors. The initiation fee for this membership is $500 until July 31, 2013. Beginning August 1, 2013, the initiation fee will increase to $1,000 until the club reaches 100 Equity Golf Members. The initiation fee will then increase $250 for every 25 equity members until 200 Equity Golf Memberships are reached. Monthly dues, plus tax, are required. Family Golf Membership – The Family Golf Membership offers all of the privileges of the Equity Golf Membership with the exception of ownership, voting rights, and serving on the board. Family Golf Members enjoy full access to the country club, plus discounts on golf and building rentals. The Family Golf Membership is just a $100 Initiation Fee plus monthly dues of $70 plus tax. Social Membership – This membership is for that person who wants a place to unwind after work or perhaps would like to enjoy the pool at the club. Social Members have access to the 19th Hole Lounge but this membership does not include tennis access or ownership or voting privileges. Social Membership is now available for just a $50 Initiation Fee plus $50 dues per month plus tax. Tennis Membership – This membership reflects the same benefits and cost as the Social Membership. This membership is currently available. However, all monies collected will be held in escrow until the renovation of the tennis courts is completed. Junior Membership – Junior Memberships are now available for young people between the ages of 16 and 25 (Those under the age of 18 require parental approval). Junior Members pay just $25 initiation fee and monthly dues of just $25 plus tax. This membership offers juniors the same discount on golf that Equity Members receive, but does not offer access to other areas of the club. Business Membership This new membership will save money for those businesses who support golf in our community and who can take advantage of the Madison Country Club’s banquet and meeting facilities. Membership is just $500 annually. All new members must be approved by the Madison Country Club Board of Directors and must agree to abide by the clubs Code of Conduct. Members are also responsible for the conduct of guests while at MCC.

The Madison City Commission set the tentative millage rate for Fiscal Year 2013-2014 at seven mills at their Monday, July 15, meeting. City Manager Tim Bennett briey discussed the budget with the commissioners and explained that the city would work with the higher number of seven mills. He expects the rolled back millage rate to be set at 6.1715. Based on the citys rolled back millage rate, they will be able to generate the same collection of ad taxes they sought in 2012-2013. Those numbers were $530,182. If the city used the same millage rate they used last year, they would generate more than $10,500 less. Last years millage rate was 6.0484. The motion to set the tentative rate was passed unanimously. The board also scheduled the rst public hearing on the millage rate for Sept. 10.

Floridas jobless rate dropped again in May, down to 7.1 percent, 0.1 percentage point lower than Aprils 7.2 percent and the lowest its been since September 2008, when it was 7.0 percent. For the third consecutive month also, the states rate was lower than the national rate, which was 7.6 percent. Jefferson and Madison counties, however, saw their rates increase slightly, from 5.2 and 8.4 percents in April to 5.4 and 8.5 percents in May respectively. So indicate the latest gures from Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (FDEO), released last Friday, June 21. The improving unemployment situation statewide gave the Governor Rick Scott cause to celebrate his policies. Each month we continue to distance ourselves from the national unemployment rate, Scott said. Its clear we are succeeding in growing opportunities for Florida families to pursue the American Dream. While Florida communities have experienced some incredible successes, well continue working tirelessly to provide jobs to families across the Sunshine State. Statewide, the 7.1 percent represents 671,000 jobless Floridians out of a labor force of 9,427,000 not counting individuals who have given up the search for work or who are underemployed or employed part time. The FDEO reports Floridas seasonally adjusted total nonagricultural employment was 7,511,200 in May, a decrease of 6,200 jobs over the month. Seasonally adjusted means the numbers have been purged of seasonal and other factors that could skew the results. The number of jobs in the state was up 122,500 in May from a year ago, an increase of 1.7, the FDEO states. Nationally, the number of jobs was up 1.6 percent over the year. May was the 34th consecutive month showing positive annual job growth after the state lost jobs for more than three straight years, Floridas Jobless Rate Continues To Decline(Rates In Madison, Jefferson Up Slightly)By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc.

In the Bill of Rights, those rst ten amendments to the Constitution introduced by our namesake James Madison in the rst Congress (1789), there are a number of legal protections afforded all Americans. They are contained primarily in three amendments, 5 through 7. Among these protections are indictment by Grand Jury; double jeopardy; self-incrimination; due process; trial by an impartial jury; confront accusers; legal representation; and protection for local courts. These are centuries-old common law (applicable to all) protections that really began with the Magna Carta in 1215. Over centuries of trial and error, English law evolved and became the great standard for Americas rule of law. It is a model for the world. Before this, law was absolute and arbitrary. In the Book of Esther, we learn that King Xerxes was an absolute monarch. To approach the king without his concurrence was a capital offense, punishable by death. Thats pretty extreme by 21st Century standards. Thank goodness those days are behind us. The idea here is that in the courtroom, justice is blind; there are no favorites; the factual evidence following a set of established standards will lead a jury of our peers to render a judgment of guilt or innocence. This is very much different than the court of public opinion where there are literally no rules. You know, if you stop and think about it, a lynch mob was an early manifestation of the court-of-publicopinion. On the spur of a moment, a bunch of citizens gathered, often fortied by strong drink, and decided on the guilt or innocence of someone based on passion and hearsay. The event frequently ended with a rope over a tree limb and the accused dead. Isnt that what happened at Rosewood in what, 1923? A mob of angry (drunk?) white men, acting on rumor and innuendo, destroyed a town of Black folks killing how many? One of the saddest things about the Martin-Zimmerman affair in Central Florida is that George Zimmerman was convicted in the court-of-publicopinion long before he went to trial. He was convicted by the media led by race-baiters. They essentially lynched Zimmerman, in a 21st Century way. Then the politicians got involved, starting at the top with the president. I will guarantee you that nothing good comes from political interference in a criminal case. We didnt elect them for that purpose and they need to stay out of the way and let the criminal justice system work as it is designed to work. One of the reasons I dont get invested with these sensational cases (Jody Arias, Casey Anthony, etc.) is that it isnt any of my business. It only really matters to the court ofcers, and ultimately, the judgment of the jury. I dont waste my time following the proceedings. Ive got better things to do. Maybe if I was in law enforcement or a lawyer, I would feel differently, but Im not, so I dont. It was all well and ne for the media to convict George Zimmerman; to manipulate tapes to iname public opinion; or to withhold evidence, but in the end, it didnt really matter. In the end, it came down to what was allowed in that courtroom. There are rules for evidence. A jury was impaneled. They listened to the evidence and sworn testimony. The prosecutors realized they had lost their murder two case and asked after-the-fact for manslaughter which the judge permitted. Even that wasnt enough to convict George Zimmerman. He walked. I learned this lesson in the O.J. Simpson criminal trial twenty years ago in Southern California. Based on the evidence, I thought O.J. was guilty, but it didnt matter what I thought. It only mattered to the jury and they acquitted him. Case closed. Many of us disagree with the verdict but it doesnt matter whether we disagree or not. Only what went on in the courtroom mattered. Read the Constitution: those protections afforded George Zimmerman protect you and me as well. The case isnt over. The Justice Department is considering a civil rights case; I predict they will pass on it, no matter how partisan Eric Holder is. Lawsuits are being led. I dont think Zimmerman will be tried for wrongful death, because he doesnt have any money for the law sharks to circle. The insurance companies will pay, and maybe even eventually, NBC for doctoring the 9-1-1 tapes. George Zimmerman is a marked man, so in that sense, he isnt free. He felt he needed a rearm for self-protection before Trayvon Martin was fatally shot. He probably needs one today, more than before. He had better move to some place where he can get lost. Eventually, the heat of passion will die down and we will move on, hopefully sooner than later.We have discussed wh -y it is important to consume adequate water, how much to drink each day, and how to improve the quality of the water we drink, but we havent yet discussed when to drink water, and why this matters. Drink a big glass of room-temperature water about half-anhour before meals, earlier if you insist on ice-cold water, and if you have digestive difficulties or heartburn, try adding a capful of raw apple cider vinegar or the juice of some lemon to that water. Try not to drink water with meals, as this dilutes the digestive juices too much making it harder for them to do their job. Then drink more water a couple of hours after eating. In summary, drink between meals rather than with meals. Water is best at room temperature rather than ice cold, as our bodies have to warm up cold water before it can be used. Although some say that cold water requires more calories to heat up so it may be more helpful in weight loss. But If you drink a large amount of cold water, and then jiggle your belly around, you will hear and feel the water sloshing around, whereas if you drink a large amount of room temperature water it is immediately assimilated into the body and you wont get that sloshing sound. Hot water in the form of herbal (non-caffeinated) teas are also fine. Remember that caffeinated beverages and alcohol do not count as water as they are dehydrating. Quality milk, bone broths and freshsqueezed juice may be healthy, but they wont rehydrate you either, so only count water in your hydration efforts! I personally find that I get a headache when I am dehydrated, so when I get that feeling at the temples of my head where my headaches start, I drink lots of water, and the headache goes away. We need to be proactive and drink water regularly between meals.www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 17, 2013 2A Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS National SecurityJoe Boyles Guest Columnist Did You Know...trial By JuryTomatoes, tomatoes everywhere! At least thats what I want when I plant my tomato garden every year. This year I planted new varieties that I have not grown before and some I had never heard of until this spring: Paul Robeson, Purple Cherokee, Costoluto Genovese and Juliet to name a few. My tomato garden is, by far, the biggest garden I plant, and the one with the most variety. The first reason is that not much tastes better to me than a homegrown tomato, plucked from a plant in my own backyard and its absolutely essential for my annual (okay, sometimes biannual) BLT. Another reason is because I absolutely love tasting new varieties; will they be sweet, acidic, tart? However, probably the largest reason of all I grow so many tomatoes, are for their versatility in cooking. You can use them fresh in salads or slice them up for the table. You can cook them down into sauce and make pizza, spaghetti, chili, or casseroles. You can broil tomatoes whole, or chop them up and add them to baked recipes; Not to mention canning, where you can preserve them whole, juiced, sauced, or even made into a jam (which is, by the way, absolutely stunning if you use yellow tomatoes). And what tomato lover could let summer pass without a plate of fried green tomatoes? Obviously I could go on and on about tomatoes, but I will stop so that I can share a tomato recipe with you that I made and fell head-over-heels in love with. The recipe is for a Tomato Tart. I have eaten this before as Tomato Pie where it was prepared with a custard base and a heavy layer of mayonnaise, but I really fell in love with this version because instead of using the mayonnaise or cream and eggs, it was simply tomatoes and herbs in pastry and the freshness of the tomatoes really came through. It makes a great light supper with a glass of iced tea. Enjoy the tomato season while it lasts! TOMATO TART I made this in a nine inch tart pan with a removable bottom, but theres no need to buy a special pan, simply use a nine-inch pie pan. Tart Dough 1 cups flour tsp salt 9 TB butter, chilled and cubed 1 egg, beaten 2 to 3 TB cold water Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix the flour and salt together (omit the salt if youre using salted butter). Using a pastry blender, cut butter into the flour until the mixture is crumbly. In a small bowl, combine egg and 2 TB of the cold water. Stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture; stir until the dough holds together. If the dough seems dry, add the additional TB of water. Roll the dough on a lightly floured surface so that it is large enough to cover the bottom and up the sides of the pan youre using. (An easy way to know how big to roll your dough is to place your pan upside down on dough and make sure you have 2-inches of dough all around the pan). Gently press the dough into the pan and allow it to rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Tart Filling 2 to 3 TB Dijon mustard 2 to 3 large tomatoes 2 TB olive oil chopped fresh herbs (basil, oregano, dill, parsley, chives, etc.) salt and pepper to taste optional: fresh mozzarella or goat cheese Spread the mustard in an even layer on the crust and allow it to sit for a few minutes to dry out. (Hopefully youre reading ahead because I spread my mustard on before allowing my dough to rest, so both my waiting periods are combined). Slice tomatoes and place them over the mustard in a single layer. Drizzle olive oil over the top of tomatoes. Sprinkle the amount of herbs, salt, and pepper you want on top. Add cheese if using and bake about 30 minutes or until the dough is nicely browned and the tomatoes are tender. If using cheese, make sure it is nicely browned as well. Allow to cool about five minutes before eatingif you can! I like it at room temperature as well. But if there are leftovers (really?) be sure to refrigerate because of the cheese.Finding Love In A Tomato Tart Rose Klein ColumnistFrank NathanExecutive Director Lake Park of Madison Health & Wellness TipsSearching For Ambrosia

Ms. Orsborn decided to take matters into her own hands after calling 311 for the last time. Witnesses report that she stepped outside with a diaper pail in one hand and a lighter in the other. She called to the rework offenders saying, You want to see reworks, here you go! She then began pulling soiled diapers from the pail, set them on re, and hurled them at the group of men who were drunk and shooting bottle rockets at each other. No injuries were sustained, although several men were reported to have fecal matter on their faces. No charges were pressed.Man Attacked By Fox While On ToiletIn London, a 49year old man was attacked in his home as he was sitting on the toilet. Anthony Schoeld claims a fox burst into his bathroom and chased him into the living room. He said, I didnt even have time to wipe myself. The fox embedded its teeth into Mr. Schoelds arm and attacked his cat as well. Mr. Schoeld then dragged the fox outside and was able to nally free himself. He was later treated at a hospital for cuts and bruises. His cat survived as well, but now refuses to enter the living room.New Television Channel For Mans Best FriendIn the US, satellite TV provider, DirecTV will soon be carrying the rst 24-hour channel geared towards dogs.

In May 2012, the comparable gures were 467 jobless persons out of a workforce of 6,381 when the unemployment rate was 7.3 percent. For Madison County, the 8.5 percent translates into 608 jobless persons out of a labor force of 7,180, compared with 597 jobless persons out of a labor force of 7,116 in April, when the rate was 8.4 percent. In May 2012, the comparable gures were 722 jobless persons out of a labor force of 7,328, when the unemployment rate was 9.9 percent.

Saying that the changes to the Florida Retirement System in the last scal quarter had been a kick in the pants for Madison Countys FY 20122013 budget, Madison County Court Clerk Tim Sanders matter-of-factly delivered even graver news for Madisons 2013-2014 FY Budget: a projected shortfall of over $860,000. Citing it as another example of unfunded state mandates that plague small counties, Sanders and the commissioners wondered aloud whether there was anything elected representatives in Tallahassee could do for the county; one commissioner noted that Madisons State Representative, Halsey Beshears, had already told him that there was nothing he could do about it. Another added, Thats the same thing he said when we lost our MCI inmate labor: he just said, Deal with it. Commissioners pondered other sources that might be able to intervene on behalf of not only Madison, but also other small, rural counties with cashstrapped budgets. What about the Florida Association of Counties? What about the Small County Association? What about meeting with individual legislators to let them know how hard this was hitting the small rural counties? It may not change things right now, but itll send a message for next scal year, said Sanders. Commissioner Ronnie Moore agreed, adding, We need to go beyond our legislators. We need to let everyone know how this is affecting small counties. At the heart of the countys budget woes for the next scal year is a statelegislated increase in the amount that counties and other state or local government entities must pay into the Florida Retirement System for all of their employees. The new FRS requirements took effect July 1, 2013. While larger counties with larger tax bases and bigger reserve funds could absorb the blow much better, small rural counties like Madison, with budgets balanced on the head of a pin, strained reserve funds already drawn down by other crises, a signicant portion of its population base living close to or under the poverty line and an unemployment rate that is higher than state average, are left scraping for ways to cope. The board discussed ways to raise revenue and asked if the county had ever had ever used the maximum millage rate of 10 mils. We were at 10 mils forever, Sanders replied. Until property values skyrocketed 2006 and 2007, then we adjusted down. After the housing bubble burst and the recession hit in 2008, the millage rate began gradually creeping back up toward 10 mils. However, even if the county were to go back up to 10 mils for the next scal year, it would still face a shortfall of about $600,000. And thats assuming that insurance doesnt go up, said Commissioner Justin Hamrick. Since the new requirements kicked in July 1, the county is already looking at a shortfall for the nal quarter of FY 2012-2013. The county can draw in some revenue some its small reserves, but Sanders warned that it was just enough to get through October, November, and December. After much subdued discussion of the situation, the board agreed to hold a budget workshop July 17-18 to see what could be done. Hopefully by the next meeting, well have some recommendations for the insurance committee, said Sanders. It all looks like gloom and doom, he added. But well get through this. We do it every year.County Commission: Next FY Budget Faces Nearly $840,000 Shortfall

By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc. On the west side of Four Freedoms Park stands a tree and a bench, which honor a former resident of Madison. Bernard Wilson was not just any resident of the fair city. Originally from Bainbridge, Ga., he came to Madison from Wakulla County to serve as the manager for Florida Power. He also served as a Madison city commissioner, as the local civil defense director and as Veterans Service officer. He was also chosen as Madison Countys Citizen of the Year. In his role as the Veterans Service officer, Wilson shined. A World War II veteran who was on a bomber plane in the South Pacific near the close of the war, he made sure that every patriotic holiday was observed and became a shining example for Veterans Service officers that followed in his place. Each year, Wilson would make sure that the flags of all 50 states, as well as the American flag, were on prominent display at the Courthouse. He made sure that several monuments were erected in the city, noting the service of men and women in different wars. When Bernard and Betty Wilson began having health problems, their son, David, then the head football coach at Lincoln High School, found many of the columns that his father had written over the years. Bernard had written a column on military and veterans affairs. From time to time, he would highlight a different veteran from Madison County who had done something significant in the battle to keep the United States free. On occasion, David and Bernard would come to the office, so David could look through the bound copies for his fathers stories. David began looking for information on the Bicentennial Tree that his father had planted in 1976. He went to the park to see the tree and discovered that it was not marked anywhere in the park. His fathers memory was failing at the time so he could not tell him where it was. David found the photo of the tree being planted in an old newspaper. Looking at the background of the photo, he was able to pinpoint the tree and its location in the park. David was able to erect two benches in honor of his late parents and a marker, which notes the location of the Bicentennial Tree, planted in Jan. 1976. The bench honoring both his parents is inscribed with 1 Corinthians 16:13-14, which reads: Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love. (New King James Version) Betty Wilson stood by Bernard for over 50 years, brave and strong and loving him. The bench which was placed in honor of Bernard reads: Family, Faith, Community, Country, which were all near and dear to Bernards heart. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 17, 2013 Madison County Carrier 5AAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY Benches And Tree Pay Homage To Late Bernard And Betty Wilson Greene Publishing, Inc.

www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 17, 2013 6A Madison County CarrierAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY Review: Haunted Big Bend FloridaBy Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc.With its history lled with stories of ghosts at such locations as Stonewall Cemetery in Lee, the Drew Mansion in Ellaville and the Wardlaw-Smith-Goza house in Madison, the rst thing that a Madison Countian may notice when picking up Haunted Big Bend Florida is that Madison County didnt make it in the book. The next thing one may notice, however is that plenty of counties around Madison did, including neighboring Madison County. A good portion of the book is dedicated to the places that are alleged to be haunted in Jefferson County. Author Alan Brown takes the readers on a tour of the town, which was dubbed by ABC News as The Most Haunted Small Town in America and by PBS as The Souths Most Haunted Small Town. History is woven into the stories that Brown tells of East Dogwood Street, the Monticello Opera House, the John Denham Bed and Breakfast House (which is featured prominently on its cover with a full moon hanging over its cupola), the Avera-Clark House, the Old Jefferson County Jail, the old Jefferson County High School, the Meeting Oak, the Daffodale House and the Palmer House. Along with histories of each location, which is all too brief for my tastes, are the tales of ghastly ghosts and friendly spirits, such as John H. Perkins, who built the Opera House. This writer must admit that he doesnt believe the stories of ghosts that Brown relates throughout the book, but he does find them entertaining and amusing. The book is light and breezy and easy to read. In addition to the tales of Monticello, Brown also writes about sites in Tallahassee (such as the Velda Mounds and Florida State University) being haunted, along with sites from Apalachicola, Chipley, Franklin County, Gadsden County, Port St. Joe, Quincy, Sumatra, Washington County and Wewahitchka. The book is available in paperback at local bookstores for $19.99 or is available online at www.historypress.net. Haunted Big Bend Florida also retails as an e-book through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apples I-bookstore, Googles e-bookstore and Overdrive. A Tree Grows in Madison...AgainBy Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.Actually, its a century plant, but its easily as tall as any trees in the vicinity. Owner Carl Dean reckons that it is pr obably about 35 feet tall at this point. This makes a total of two known century plants in bloom in Madison County. The other one is located at the Days Inn on South SR 53 near I-10, and was featured in the Wednesday, June 26 edition of the Madison County Carrier. The plant in Deans backyard is one he transplanted from Cherry Lake about 20 years ago. At the time, it was a small thing, only about a foot high. Now, the leaves at the base reach almost ve feet in height and are about ve feet across. The central stalk began growing out of the center about two months ago, and after it reached its maximum height, it began blooming. Once a century plant blooms and disperses its seeds, its life cycle is complete. The central mother plant begins dying off, but often there are several pups sprouting up around the mother plant that will live on, grow to maturity, and when they sense that conditions are right for optimal seed dispersal, they too will send up stalks and bloom. This is the case with Deans plant. The big leaves around the base of the stalk are already beginning to turn yellow and brown in places, but there are several new shoots sprouting up around the central mother plant. After they reach ten years old, they will begin their wait. No one knows how many years that will be, but when the conditions are just right, they too will send up the giant stalks, bloom, disperse their seeds and die. And so, the cycle begins anew.

Students were chosen at the previous state conference to represent Florida at the convention in the following competitive events: Chapter Service Project, Focus on Children, and Illustrated Public Speaking. Chapter Service Project is a competitive event based in which students complete a community service project that is present to the judges through a ten-minute live presentation and a display board, complete with budget, proof of activities, planning process, and evidence of public relations. The students in this event were Lacey Clayton, Ali Patron, and Ryan Floyd. They received a gold medal and had the second highest score in the Southern Region. Focus on Children is a competitive event in which students complete a community service project that affects children, which is present to the judges through a tenminute live presentation and a display board, complete with a planning process, proof of activities and knowledge of child development and evidence of public relations. The students in this event were Ashley Arnold, Amelia Blanton, and Courtney Strickland. They received a gold medal and were ranked in the top three teams in the Southern Region Illustrated Public speaking is a competitive event in which a student or team of students write and present a speech based on a Family and Consumer Science topic. The student is required to select a topic, prepare their speech with visuals to be used in the speech, and speak for up to ten minutes on this topic using various props and visuals. They must present the speech to at least three groups prior to competition. The student in this event was Sarah Baltzell. She received a gold medal in her event and received the highest score in the Southern Region. The students and their advisor, Robin Smith, would like to thank Madison County for its continued support this year with the various projects and activities of the chapter. They also are very grateful for the financial support from the community that made this trip possible. They would like to publicly thank the following businesses and organizations for their support: Madison County Superintendent of Schools; Madison County School Board; Madison County faculty and staff; Madison County Kiwanis; Burnette Plumbing; Busy Bee; Daylight Salon and Spa; Farm Bureau; Farmers Cooperative; Gordon Tractor; INDEPENDENT Green Technologies; Luci Strickland, ARNP; Madison Antiques; Madison Marble Works; Madison Veterinary Clinic; Milliron Realty; North Florida Pharmacy; Stewarts Auto Service Center; Sunshine State Insurance; Tim Sanders; Tommy Hardee; TruSeal, LLC; Upholds Feed and Seed; Vann Insurance.Photo SubmittedMembers of the FCCLA who made the trek to nationals include: Front Row, left to right: Lacey Clayton and Ali Patron.

By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc. Aspecial camp was recently held called BUDDY Camp. BUDDY stands for Building Understanding of Diversity with Dynamic Youth. Seven of the children who attended the camp have autism. They blended in with eight other children. None of the families who are touched by autism had to pay for the camp because of the Artists Touched by Autism Event at North Florida Community College, the walk held in April and generous donations from the community. The camp was a typical overnight camp which targeted skill sets for autistic and special needs youth. Because of the circumstances, parents had to attend the camp as well. Leslie McLeod, who helped get the camp started, said, I would like to say thank you to all the community for their support. This could not have been possible without them. This made a huge impact on our childrens lives. They built lifelong friendships. They were able to have the same opportunity as other children. McLeod said that the walk and the art exhibit will be annual events, so that the Autism Support Kids (ASK) group can raise funds to send children to camp every year. Madison Country Club Offers Five New Membership OptionsThe Board of Directors of the Madison Country Club recently unanimously approved five new membership packages at their recent Annual Meeting. I could not be more pleased with the new membership offerings now available at the club, said Ted Ensminger, Director of Sales and Event Development at MCC. We now have a membership package for just about everyone. For those who do not play golf, for those who are looking for an excellent social atmosphere, for those who enjoy tennis, even for our young people who are just getting exposed to golf, Equity Golf Membership The highest level of participation at Madison Country Club is called an Equity Golf Membership. It includes ownership of the club, full access and privileges, as well as the opportunity for the member to be involved in voting on club issues or the opportunity of serving on the board of directors. The initiation fee for this membership is $500 until July 31, 2013. Beginning August 1, 2013, the initiation fee will increase to $1,000 until the club reaches 100 Equity Golf Members. The initiation fee will then increase $250 for every 25 equity members until 200 Equity Golf Memberships are reached. Monthly dues, plus tax, are required. Family Golf Membership The Family Golf Membership offers all of the privileges of the Equity Golf Membership with the exception of ownership, voting rights, and serving on the board. Family Golf Members enjoy full access to the country club, plus discounts on golf and building rentals. The Family Golf Membership is just a $100 Initiation Fee plus monthly dues of $70 plus tax. Social Membership This membership is for that person who wants a place to unwind after work or perhaps would like to enjoy the pool at the club. Social Members have access to the 19th Hole Lounge but this membership does not include tennis access or ownership or voting privileges. Social Membership is now available for just a $50 Initiation Fee plus $50 dues per month plus tax. Tennis Membership This membership reflects the same benefits and cost as the Social Membership. This membership is currently available. However, all monies collected will be held in escrow until the renovation of the tennis courts is completed. Junior Membership Junior Memberships are now available for young people between the ages of 16 and 25 (Those under the age of 18 require parental approval). Junior Members pay just $25 initiation fee and monthly dues of just $25 plus tax. This membership offers juniors the same discount on golf that Equity Members receive, but does not offer access to other areas of the club. Business Membership This new membership will save money for those businesses who support golf in our community and who can take advantage of the Madison Country Clubs banquet and meeting facilities. Membership is just $500 annually. All new members must be approved by the Madison Country Club Board of Directors and must agree to abide by the clubs Code of Conduct. Members are also responsible for the conduct of guests while at MCC. For complete information about Madison Country Clubs new membership opportunities, or for answers to any questions, please contact Ted Ensminger at 850-973-6701 or email yourplacetoplay32340@g mail.com. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 17, 2013 Madison County Carrier 7AAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY Three Master Masons Receive Lambskin Aprons ONLY ONE HEART TEAM IN THE REGION PERFORMS IT.Joe Mills World War II VeteranI CHEATED DEATH TWICE ONCE DURING WORLD WAR II WHEN I SURVIVED A KAMIKAZE ATTACK AND AGAIN WHEN DOCTORS AT TMH REPLACED MY AORTIC VALVE THROUGH AN ARTERY IN MY LEG.

If a prisoner has escaped or if a child or senior has gone missing, the Madison Correctional Institution K-9 team can help. With a total of nine bloodhounds housed at the prison, the dogs are raised from puppies and trained by Canine Sgt. Todd Richardson and his staff of Ofcers Darren Rye, Donnie Bass, Ben Pike, Jonathan Richardson and Justin Surles. The dogs are trained to sniff out who they are looking for using various methods including: Scent identication, where there is a garment the person they are seeking wore. Casting, where they pick up the freshest scent. A known scent trail, where the person was spotted going in. The dogs are trained in both rural and urban tracking. The canines recently helped capture someone who ed Madison County Sheriffs deputies in the woods near Midway Baptist Church. They also were able to track and locate three suspects who robbed a store in Monticello. The team is dispatched to locations in Madison County whenever the Madison County Sheriffs Ofce or Madison Police Department needs, as well as to law enforcement requests in surrounding counties and municipalities. Whenever they are called in by law enforcement, they are ready to go.Greene Publishing, Inc.

By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.The Rotary Clubs final meeting for the month of June was also its final meeting for the year 2012-2013. Outgoing President Scot Copeland welcomed the large crowd, which included many members spouses and friends invited for the occasion of Installation of Officers, as well as two special guests, outgoing Assistant District Governor Myra Regan of the Live Oak Rotary Club, and incoming Assistant District Governor Mark Viola of the Perry Rotary Club. In an interesting turn of history, it was the Perry Rotary Club that sponsored the Madison Rotary Club at its beginning, Nov. 18, 1948. The bell that the Madison Rotary uses to call its meetings to order is inscribed with the date and was presented to Madison Rotary by the Perry Rotary Club. Several other officers and board members were continuing in their roles for another term, including Jim Catron as Secretary, Joe Boyles as the Sergeant-at-Arms, Rick Davis as Treasurer, Sean Alderman, board member in charge of Community Service, Mark Buescher, board member in charge of Vocational Service, and Janna Barrs, board member in charge of New Generations. The Madison Rotary also thanked Past President and outgoing board member Brian OConnell, who had served on the board as overseer of the Rotary Foundation. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 17, 2013 Madison County Carrier 9AAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY Big Fish MondayCatch the biggest sh of the week and win a FREE oil changeBring in a photo of your sh with its measurements for a chance to win a FREE OIL CHANGEParts/Service Hours: Mon-Fri-7:30-5:30 Sat. 7:30-3:00850-584-6178 2441 South Byron Butler Parkway Perry, Flwww.timberlandford.comSales Hours: Mon-Fri 7:30-5:30 Sat. 7:30-3:00800-763-4589Timberland FordConvenient Service Center Hours Saturday: 7:30 a.m. 3:00 p.m. Madison Rotary Club Installs New Officers For Coming Year Greene Publishing, Inc.
