Awoman died as the result of injuries suffered during a traffic crash on Friday, Oct. 18. According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Jerome Graber, 71, of Hartville, Ohio, was traveling east on Interstate 10 in the eastbound lane in a 2012 Chrysler 200, at approximately 7:45 a.m. As the car approached the 256-mile marker, it traveled southeast across the paved shoulder and onto the sloped grass shoulder. At the bottom of the slope, the front of the car collided with a tree. The car rotated a half-turn in a clockwise direction before coming to a final rest, facing west, at the point of impact. FHP was notified later by Tallahassee Memorial Hospital that Vicky Graber, 49, who was the passenger in the car, had died as a result of her injuries in the crash. Wed.

Jacob Bembry, Steven Godfrey, and Hunter Greene ofGreene Publishingand Tommy Hardee and Leigh Bareld are going pink to raise money and awareness for the disease that is the number two killer of women in the United States. The idea came about one day last week, as Bembry said that he was getting his hair cut and wanted to know how many people thought he should get it shaved. Tori Self, who works in production for Greene Publishing, said, Why dont you get it dyed pink for Breast Cancer Awareness. Bembry hesitated and Greene said, If you do it, I will get my beard dyed pink, and then Godfrey said he would get his sideburns dyed. The three will be getting their new styles by this Friday, Oct. 25. Bembry and Hardee began discussing Selfs idea at Hickory Grove Founders Day on Saturday and pretty soon, Hardee was talked into it and Bareld also came on board. On Friday at noon, Supervisor of Elections Tommy Hardee will be getting his hair dyed in the County Commission meeting room at the Courthouse Annex. Bembry will be there taking photos of Hardee getting his hair done. Bembrys hair will already be dyed pink. Everyone is invited to see the event.

Highlights of the single-piece First-Class Mail pricing are to include:Letters (one ounce) three-cent increase to 49 cents Letters (additional ounces) one-cent increase to 21 cents Letters to International Destinations (one ounce) $1.15 Postcards onecent increase to 34 cents If the proposal is accepted, the new prices will go into effect January 26, 2014. The price increases are expected to generate $2 billion in new revenue to improve the Postal Services nancial situation. In a letter to postal customers, the Board of Governors chairman, Mickey Barnett, said the Postal Service had consolidated 350 mail processing facilities, aggressively streamlined Post Ofce operations, reduced 22,000 delivery routes and reduced workforce by 203,000 employees, along with cutting operating costs by $16 billion since 2,006. He continues to say, These measures, while impressive, have been insufcient to restore the Postal Service to nancial stability. The Postal Service recorded a $15.9 billion net loss last scal year and expects a loss of about $6 billion in the current scal year.Postal Rate Increase Slated For January 2014Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that on Monday, Oct. 21, Madison County Sheriffs Ofce deputies conducted a trafc stop on Interstate 10 for a trafc infraction (Failing to yield to blue lights Move Over).

The vehicle, a blue Dodge Charger, was traveling in an easterly direction and being driven by Christopher Renard Mobley, 30, of Jacksonville. When approaching the driver, deputies detected the odor of marijuana emitting from the interior of the car and the driver said he was not aware if anyone had been smoking marijuana in the car. A canine search of the exterior of the vehicle resulted in a positive alert to the interior of the vehicle. A complete search of the vehicle discovered marijuana shake on the seats and oorboard areas of the vehicle, prescription hydrocodone pills, eight ounces of liquid codeine in a baby bottle and a nine mm handgun with standard 15-round magazine and an additional 30 round magazine. The driver claimed he had a prescription for the pills but could not produce one and randomly stated that some girls had left the liquid candy (liquid codeine). Mobley was taken into custody without further incident and transported to the Madison County Jail.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it is only correct to provide some information. Like any cancer, breast cancer is a complex disease, and there is no sure way to protect yourself. There are many things you can do to move the odds in your favor. A fair amount of breast cancer is related to environmental risk. In countries like Japan, breast cancer is dramatically lower than in this country. When Japanese women move to the United States, within a generation, they pick up the same incidence of breast cancer as American women. Since we are not moving to Japan we need to nd other ways to protect ourselves. Being overweight has many negative consequences for health, and the risk of breast cancer is one of them. The effect of weight is dramatic. For a woman who weighs over 175 pounds, the chances of breast cancer are about 25 percent higher than someone who weighs 132 pounds. If there was a medication that gave us the same improvement as weight loss, we would be all over it. Breast cancer is often detected at a later stage in obese women, and obese women are more likely to die from breast cancer. Moderate daily exercise reduces breast cancer risk by 15 to 25 percent. And you dont have to become a gym rat or train for a marathon walking 30 minutes ve days a week will do the trick. To get the protective effect, walk briskly. It needs to be moderate exercise not just a stroll in the park. One way exercise may lower the risk of breast cancer is by decreasing circulating levels of estrogen in the body. While estrogen is vital for many normal body functions, increased exposure to estrogen can raise breast cancer risk. The evidence that alcohol raises the risk of cancer, including breast cancer, is so strong that in 2000, the National Institutes of Health listed the consumption of alcoholic beverages as a known human carcinogen for the rst time. The American Cancer Society says the more a woman drinks, the higher the risk of breast cancer. Even one drink a day increases the risk by a small amount. Women who drink two to ve drinks a day are one and a half times more likely to develop breast cancer. A healthy diet can lower your risk of breast cancer, and an unhealthy diet can increase your risk. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. Use vegetable oils instead of animal fats, and avoid sugared drinks, rened carbohydrates, and fatty foods. Certain foods offer additional protection, including whole soy, especially if its fermented. Soy has estrogens that attach to cells, but they dont have the same effect as body estrogen. Instead, the natural estrogens found in soy can block body estrogen from affecting cells. Other foods that can help protect against cancer include turmeric, garlic, olive oil, green tea, and seaweed. For decades, women have used hormone therapy during and after menopause to combat symptoms such as hot ashes, irritability, and trouble sleeping. But recent research has shown that hormone replacement therapy may increase the risk of breast cancer. Just how much hormone replacement may increase the risk isnt clear, but if you dont have symptoms at menopause, its a good idea to forego the hormones. However, its okay to use hormones if necessary to relieve unwanted menopausal symptoms. Take it for as long as you need it, but pr obably less than ve years is reasonable. Women who are over age 60 or who have a family history of breast cancer should consider taking an estrogen-blocking drug such as tamoxifen or raloxifene. Both drugs stop breast cells from being affected by estrogen. According to the American Cancer Society, studies have shown that tamoxifen reduces the risk of breast cancer by about 50 percent and raloxifene reduces the risk by about 38 percent in women at higher risk for the disease. Because there are also risks associated with these drugs, women should talk to their health care provider about the pros and cons. Although smoking is a factor in lung and other cancers, its role in breast cancer has been unclear. But a recent review by a Canadian panel of experts showed that both active smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke increase breast cancer risk in premenopausal women. The panel cited evidence from studies suggesting that women who start smoking at a young age are 20 percent more likely to develop breast cancer, and smoking for many years increases risk by up to 30 percent. The bottom line is that breast cancer is just one of many reasons to nix the cigarettes. Numerous studies have shown that women who breastfeed have a lower risk of breast cancer. The fact that women in developed countries tend to breastfeed for shorter periods or skip it completely is a major contributor to the high rates of breast cancer in these countries, according to an analysis of 47 studies in 30 countries. When a woman is breastfeeding her body produces higher levels of the hormone prolactin, which lowers the levels of estrogen. The longer a woman breastfeeds over a lifetime, the more protected she is against breast cancer, the analysis concluded. Take a long walk. Wear a pink ribbon. Attend a fashion show. Organizations that support breast cancer research host hundreds of events every year to raise money for research efforts. One way to improve your own chances against breast cancer is to support these efforts, and the feeling of community can have a positive effect on your overall health. Im 65 and on the backside of lifes journey. Family means a lot to me; not just my family, but families in general. Here is some personal philosophy the family is the building block of society. Its like the foundation of a building. When the foundation is strong, the building above it will be on solid ground and stand the test of time. When the building blocks crumble or were never in place to begin with, the building falls apart. So it is with families. Strong family bonds yield a better society. When those family bonds are broken, or never established in the beginning, the structure of society deteriorates. With my experience in life, I pay attention to culture, more than in prior years. I respect culture but some things I see disturb me. Let me give you an example. Two weeks ago, I heard that the infant son of a professional athlete had been murdered. The more I learned about the story, the more disturbing was the tale. Apparently, this athlete had fathered seven children with different women, none of whom he married. I dont know that he had even seen the youngster who was brutally killed by another man, let alone did the things that is expected of a father. What is a father supposed to do in a traditional, intact family? He is to provide for his family, support them in every way, and pass on his values and learning to his children. He should love his wife and by doing so, set the example for his children and others. I do recognize that today many women are the primary bread winners in their family and the role of their husband is different as a result. The important thing is that their roles are established and they support each other, and in the process, their children. It shouldnt surprise you to know that I believe in intact families. That means two parents supporting each other and blending their lives to raise their children together. Two lives, living as one. Thats the way God intended it. Some politicians argue that it takes a village to properly raise children. No it doesnt. It takes a family, beginning with a mother and dad. This is where the learning experience begins in the home with the family long before there is school, friends, etc. Again, the learning experience begins at home. If that family is broken apart, or never existed in the first place, then the learning experience suffers. Many, many children arrive at school with a deficit of learning because of mistakes or omissions in the home during the formative years. To think that a teacher or school can make up that deficit in the classroom is nothing more than wishful thinking. Neither the school nor society can change the culture that the child has grown to know and the values that are a product of that culture. Far too many children are the product of a sexual union without accompanying marriage. The clich whos your daddy is often a serious question rather than a throwaway phrase. Trust me: this is not a positive environment to raise children. Divorce used to be difficult. When my mother received a divorce decree in 1943 from her first husband, she had to wait six months by law before marrying. The culture has changed 70 years later, and in my opinion, not for the better. Weve made divorce far too easy, and as a result, commonplace. Rather than seeking counseling when times are difficult, the couple takes the easy way out and split. There are far too many children being raised in single parent households. Often, poverty complicates the matter. The one parent is too often overwhelmed with doing so much that there isnt time or energy available to properly parent the kids. This is what I mean when I say that the learning experience of the child suffers. I just returned from attending two family weddings, one on the west coast and another in Central Florida. I prayed for Gods blessing on these new marriages that they would result in a lifetime of shared experiences; that the newly married would share lifes ups and downs, working together to cope with every challenge; and to transform a wedding ceremony into a marriage with unshakeable bonds. Some may argue that my value set on this matter is old fashioned and out of touch with 21stCentury life in America. Thats certainly possible, but I know what works and what doesnt. In the current culture, I see too many examples of the breakdown in the American family to think that this is either justified or proper. I believe to the core of my soul in dual parent intact families.www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, October 23, 2013 2A Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS National SecurityJoe Boyles Guest Columnist D i d Y o u K n o w . FamilyHalloween will soon be here and so will the time to carve the October pumpkin and make up some spooky and creative goodies, if youre into that kind of thing, which I am. I wont debate the celebration of Halloween or discuss its origin, but I will discuss at length my memories of the evenings I had as a child and the fun that I had trick or treating door to door, the outrageous costume parties and the unusual and creative foods eaten. When looking for inspiration on Halloween baking this year, I came across the Irish folktale that supposedly spurred the creation of the JackO-Lantern, which brought me to the decision to make my own version of a Jack-OLantern cake. The legend of Stingy Jack originated from an Irish myth about a man named Jack who outwitted the devil, numerous times while alive, from getting his soul. After dying, he was not allowed into heaven or even hell due to his deceptiveness. He was doomed to forever roam the earth, and to light his eternal path, the devil would only give Jack a burning coal which he was said to have put inside a carvedout turnip. In Ireland and Scotland, people began making own their versions of Jack of the Lantern using turnips and potatoes and would then place them into windows or near doors to frighten away Stingy Jack or other evil spirits. Immigrants brought the tradition to the United States and soon found that pumpkins made perfect Jack-OLanterns, and in using them, created a lasting tradition. The cupcake version of Stingy Jack that I did this year is super easy, but looks a bit more impressive than a plate of regular cupcakes. Its convenient too because using cupcakes means no utensils, no slicing and even plates are optional. Use any cake recipe you want for the cupcakes, even a boxed mix if youd like. The amount of cupcakes you use will depend on how large you want the nal cake to be. The same goes for the frosting; you can use a cream cheese based, butter based, or whatever you like. I used a standard butter frosting that I will include a recipe for because its great to decorate with and to tint with color. However you celebrate Halloween, I hope you have a fun and safe holiday. If you decide to use the cupcake Jack-OLantern, send me an email with your creative version and Ill be sure to share it with other readers. Cupcake Jack-O-Lantern (Use any cake recipe you wish for cupcakes.) Classic Butter Frosting 1 cup unsalted butter, softened 4 cups confectioners sugar 1 TB vanilla extract (or use whatever avoring you like) tsp salt 3 to 4 TB milk orange, brown, green and yellow paste food colors (found in cake decorating sections of stores) In a large bowl, cream butter until smooth. Add two cups of the sugar and mix until well combined. Add vanilla, salt and three TB of the milk. Mix in the last two cups of sugar and beat until smooth. If frosting is too stiff, add the last TB of milk. You can adjust the frosting at this point, by adding a little more sugar if you need it stiffer, or a little more milk if you need it softer. Tint with desired colors. This recipe is easy to increase if you are making a large cake. To assemble cupcakes: Arrange cupcakes in a circle and ll in the center with more cupcakes. After you have your shape formed, put a small dab of frosting underneath each cupcake thats on the outside circle to keep the cupcakes in place. At this point you will have holes where the cupcakes butt up to each other. Fill these holes with frosting, candies, marshmallows or whatever edible food you wish. (This will keep the decorative frosting from falling down into the holes). Next, use your orange icing to completely cover the cupcakes to look like a regular cake. Use other colors of icing to decorate as desired. You could also use candies or sprinkles to make the face. Have fun!

www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, October 23, 2013 Madison County Carrier 3AWorld NewsBy Rose Klein Autumn Brings Cricket Fighting To BeijingIn Beijing, China, autumn marks the time for a Chinese sport dating back more than 1,000 years. Cricket ghting brings teams from all across China to compete in the two-day National Cricket Fighting Championships. Contestants put two crickets into a ring the size of a shoebox where the winner is declared by which cricket is most aggressive. Cricket raising and ghting is mostly associated with Beijings older generation, but the sport still has a strong following. Man Zhiguo, a truck driver who has been involved with the sport for more than 40 years said, I raise crickets as a hobby because I admire their positive spirit. They never admit defeat and have a ghting spirit. Zhiguo has a diverse collection of about 70 crickets from all over China, some worth more than 10,000 yuan ($1,600). The crickets have a lifespan of about 100 days, with their prime being in autumn. During the ghts, the handlers poke and prod their insects with small sticks or small pieces of hay to irritate them. Loud chirps indicate the crickets have been signicantly riled up enough to potentially ght. A judge then removes a divider between the two crickets so they can ght with each other.Japanese Pets Enjoy Alcoholic BeveragesIn Tokyo, Japan, B & H Lifes recently introduced a 1,000-bottle count of limited edition wine. The new wine, Nyan Nyan Nouveau, sells for $4 a bottle and is made from a combination of Cabernet Sauvignon and catnip. The pet food manufacturer created the wine for cats and named it nyan nyan after the Japanese translation for meow. This is the companys second alcoholic beverage for pets. B & H Lifes rst product was a beer created for dogs named Wan Wan.Snuggling Is Therapy In WisconsinIn Madison, Wisconsin, a business is charging $60 an hour for customers to cuddle with one of their professional snugglers. The Snuggle House Rejuvenation Retreat manager, Hannah Rode, said services are meant to be therapeutic, not sexual. I just think it would be a world of difference for so many people if they could come here and feel the support, Rode said. Im totally ready for people to be against it or not understand, and Im okay with it. She said the professional snugglers could prove helpful to people who have faced traumatic situations, such as the loss of a loved one or a military deployment. Madison ofcials said they are keeping a close watch on the business.Skydiver Solves Puzzle During Free FallIn Basingstoke, England, a British skydiver became recognized by Guinness World Records by becoming the rst person to solve a Rubiks Cube puzzle in a free fall-simulating wind tunnel. James Wilson, a veteran of more than 1,600 skydiving jumps took three minutes, 16 seconds to solve the puzzle inside the wind tunnel at Airkix Indoor Skydiving. Wilson said, I have always been able to do the Rubiks Cube, but not especially fast, and I had been practicing in the last few weeks. In the wind tunnel it is a lot more difcult. You have to hold it carefully or it will y out of your hands. Wilson said he is considering an attempt to complete the challenge during an actual skydiving jump.

At approximately 9:50 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19, the Madison 911 Center received a report of a vehicle crash near the intersection of S. Range Street and the railroad tracks in Madison. Responding units found a pick-up truck that had hit and broken a power pole and wires were on and around the vehicle. Fire department personnel, EMS and police could not approach thetruck until power company ofcials deemed it safe. A Duke Energy worker arrived and made sure the lines were not live and escorted the driver to safety. The driver had wisely stayed in the vehicle during the 30-minute wait. Madison Fire/Rescue, Madison Police Department and Madison County Emergency Medical Services assisted at the scene. The driver was taken for a medical review. Truck Vs Pole: No WinnersPhoto submitted by Pat LightcapMadison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that on Sunday, Oct. 20, Madison County Sheriffs Ofce deputies conducted a trafc stop on Interstate 10 for a trafc infraction (speeding). The vehicle was traveling west and was being driven by Dangelo Jevon McCray, 24, of Jacksonville. When approaching the driver, deputies detected the odor of marijuana emitting from the interior of the car and the driver admitted that he had smoked some earlier but there was not anymore in the car. The driver was asked to exit the car and, when doing so, deputies observed a green leafy substance on the drivers side oor that tested positive for marijuana. McCray was taken into custody without further incident and transported to the Madison County Jail. Dangelo Jevon McCray Man Arrested For Pot PossessionMadison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that on Friday, Oct. 18, Madison County Sheriffs Ofce deputies conducted a trafc stop on Interstate 10 for a trafc infraction. The vehicle was traveling in a westerly direction and being driven by William David Lucky, Jr., 45, of Miami. A consensual search of the vehicle discovered approximately three grams of cocaine and 2.8 grams of marijuana and one marijuana cigarette. The driver claimed the illegal substances and was taken into custody without further incident and transported to the Madison County Jail. William David Lucky, Jr.Man Arrested For Cocaine, Pot Possession Barnett described the precarious financial condition of the United States Postal Service, and recognized the uncertain path toward enactment of postal reform legislation as primary reasons for seeking price changes. He said, The price changes are necessary to ensure that the Postal Service will be able to maintain and continue the development of postal services of the type and quality which America needs. Of the options currently available to the Postal Service to align costs and revenues, increasing postage prices is a last resort that reflects extreme financial changes. Barnett stated the increased postage prices are part of a five-year business plan that will put the Postal Service on a firm financial footing and if fully implemented, the plan would close a $20 billion budget gap and enable the organization to opera te pr ofitably and reduce its debt. The Postal Service is a selfsupporting government enterprise and receives no tax dollars for operating expenses. The organization relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

Critical thinking of possible maintenance capabilities led to the purchase of an enclosed cargo trailer, fully equipped with a variety of tools, materials and equipment, that could be dispatched to any part of the county to take on any task. Albert Lee Barfield, Mobile Maintenance Supervisor of the Solid Waste and Recycling Department, has transformed the 8 1/2 x 20 cargo trailer into a complex, state-of-theart piece of equipment with unlimited capabilities. The interior is neatly fitted with support shelving that holds electrical equipment, tools, supplies and other equipment needed for completing any job. Barfields creativity, wealth of experience and knowledge of what it takes to build structures, complete maintenance and general upkeep of almost anything imaginable, led him to wire the trailer for electricity, allowing him and his inmate crew to hook up to a power source on site and immediately begin work. Although many businesses use similar cargo trailers, the countys new trailer is unmatched in capability. It will eliminate return trip after return trip to local vendors to restock materials and supplies. Forgotten tools or unforeseen developments at work sites mean no return trips to the main office. All the tools that could possibly be needed are already in the trailer, right down to extra saw blades and the tools needed to change and sharpen them. As Barfield puts it, It allows us to have all our stuff with us. Before, the only tools and equipment that could be taken to a work site was whatever could fit on the back of a truck. If a facility needs light bulbs replaced, there are boxes of bulbs in every size, along with an indoor ladder for reaching high fixtures, stored right next to the much taller outdoor ladder. There are rows and rows of chemicals for taking care of wastewater spills, cans of paint, and tools of every description hung neatly on the walls, with labels and outlines showing exactly where they should go. A glance at the wall tells workers immediately which items are out and in use, and which need to be put back and accounted for before they leave a work site. A toolbox on wheels in the corner is ready to take tools inside any facility to begin work, and a shop vac stands ready to vacuum water out of a flooded building. The list of jobs for the new mobile unit includes structural upgrades and other projects at the countys 13 solid waste and recycling collection sites, voting precinct houses and other projects. One of its first tasks will be finishing the French drain at the Greenville library, which will direct water away from the building. With all the electrical, plumbing, painting and groundskeeping tools gathered together in one place, We are set up for everything from erecting walls to raking leaves, says Barfield, who sees the newly outfitted cargo trailer as an opportunity to better serve Madison in the most effective and efficient way possible, and looks forward to putting it to the test.Greene Publishing, Inc.

By Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.Exercise is a word that most of us love to hate. We know we need it, would be better off with it, but just cant seem to motivate ourselves to do it. Evidence of regular exercise proves that it will make us feel better, give us more energy and perhaps even help us to live longer. Some physical and mental benets of exercise follow: Weight Control Physical activity burns calories. The more intense the activity; the more calories you burn. Improves Health Regular physical activity can help manage or prevent health conditions and diseases such as stroke, diabetes, depression, arthritis and certain types of cancer. Improves Mood Physical activity stimulates brain chemicals that can leave you feeling happier and more relaxed. Exercise can eliminate anxiety, boost self-condence and improve self-esteem. Boosts Energy Regular exercise improves muscle strength and can boost your endurance. Physical activity helps your heart and lungs to work more efciently, giving you more energy during your daily activities. Promotes Better Sleep Exercise expends extra energy, allowing you to fall asleep faster and helps to deepen your sleep. Can Be Fun Exercise can be fun if you do physical activity you enjoy; riding a bicycle, working out with a friend, hiking in the woods, joining a dance class, etc. If you live in Madison and would like to get in on some or all of these benets of exercise, then you need to be introduced to Cathy Rogers. Cathy Rogers knows how to move and get things done. She is a self-purported professional volunteer and gives her time to the United Way, is the education chair for the Junior Auxiliary and treasurer for Friends of the Trail. She coaches volleyball at Madison Academy and is president of the schools booster club. Rogers is married to husband, Clint who is a dentist, cattle rancher and also farms cotton, peanuts and hay. They have two children: Kyle who is in 10thgrade and plays football at Aucilla Christian, and Kaylie, who is in eighth grade and participates in volleyball and softball. The busy couple also nds time to own racehorses. If exercise boosts energy then Rogers busy schedule is evidence of that. Even with all these activities, she states that exercise and encouraging people to get healthy is her passion. Rogers has a BA in exercise and sports science from the University of Florida. She is a certied aerobics instructor through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) and a certied Zumba instructor through the Zumba Instructor Network (ZIN). She offers free classes that are open to anybody from high school age up to grandparents. Rogers says she designs her classes so participants will get a total body workout in every class. The classes are a combination of cardio and weight training and may include step aerobics, zumba, kick-boxing, stability ball, bands, body-t work and weights. She said she ensures the atmosphere of her classes is easygoing, non-judgmental and with a family atmosphere that fosters friendship. Rogers stresses that exercise needs to be a priority if you are looking for the benets it can provide. She says, I exercise because I want to be here for a very long time and I want to be healthy for a very long time. Rogers understands that her classes may not suit everyone and generously offers up other local options. Options other than Rogerss class include the local Curves in town, the gym at North Florida Community College, a Run for God Bible Study offered by Willy and Melissa Gamalero, and a list of her favorite DVD work-outs that she has found to be effective: Insanity, T25 and Brazilian Butt Lift. Rogers says the hardest part is in getting started and says, we only get one body on this earth and we should take good care of it. Cathy Rogers offers classes at Fellowship Baptist Church in the fellowship hall on Mondays and Thursdays, 5:15 to 6:15 p.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays, 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. If you are interested in classes or need more information, you can call her at (850) 464-4000 or send her an email at clintdmd@msn.com.

North Florida Community College's Allied Health Department is currently accepting students for its new Pharmacy Technician certificate program. The new program is set to begin Jan. 8 and according to NFCC Allied Health Advisor Debbie Bass, now is the time to contact NFCC and complete the application process. "We are seeing a lot of interest in the Pharmacy Technician program," said Bass. "Approximately 15-20 students will be selected for this first class and it's important for anyone interested in applying to the program to contact me before the Nov. 15 deadline." The program takes less than a year to complete, approximately 10 months, and prepares students to enter the workforce as trained professionals. Pharmacy Technicians perform technical and clerical duties in pharmacies while working with licensed pharmacists to dispense prescription medications. Graduates who achieve a passing score on the National Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam and register with the Florida State Board of Pharmacy can seek employment as Certified and Registered Pharmacy Technicians. "The Pharmacy Technician certificate is a great addition to NFCC's Allied Health offerings," said Julie Townsend, Allied Health Director at NFCC. "Employment in this area of healthcare is expected to grow over the next several years and we are looking forward to training our communities' future Pharmacy Technicians." According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS), employment of pharmacy technicians is expected to increase more than 32% from 2010 to 2020. The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Labor Market Statistics Center projects a 22 percent increase in employment of pharmacy technicians by 2019 for Workforce Region 6, which includes the counties in NFCC's service district. "The NFCC Allied Health Department has a reputation for producing high student pass rates, offering exceptional training opportunities and being student oriented," said Townsend. "You can expect the same quality standards and opportunities from our new Pharmacy Technician certificate program." Student applications will be accepted through Nov. 15.

R u n W a l k R o l l R a l l y S e t F o r S a t u r d a y Project Safe Zone, a Safe Schools/Hea lthy Students Initiative in the Madison County School District, is hosting its third Annual Run, Walk, Roll Rally on Saturday, Oct. 26, at Lake Francis. October 2013 is National Bullying Prevention Month, and the event will be a highlight of activities scheduled throughout the month. Parental and community involvement are essential for building sustainable solutions to education challenges like those facing Madison County, and positive behavior programs are crucial to that process. Consequently, when Project Safe Zone was launched, Project Director Octavious Tookes realized that a successful strategy must include an effective bullying prevention program. Notable improvements were made last year, and now we must build on those to ensure lasting solutions. The community, and parents in particular, must participate in order to create meaningful results. The Run, Walk, Roll Rally is a wonderful means to that end, Tookes noted. To guide the process, bullying prevention committees have been established at each district school, in addition to the mentoring and positive behavior curriculum. Reinforcing these internal efforts, Madison Countys civic, faith-based and business leadership have joined school planners to deliver community activities that increase awareness and promote the Run, Walk, Roll Rally, which exceeded 500 visitors last year. The third Annual Run, Walk, Roll Rally will feature musical and dramatic performances, as well as the personal story of a local teen who overcame the impact of peer bullying. There will also be free hot dogs and snacks, prize drawings, and lots of giveaways. All visitors are encouraged to wear orange, as it is the color of National Bullying Prevention.

www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, October 23, 2013 Madison County Carrier 9A From Prevention Partners website: Enrique Kiki Camarena grew up in a dirtoored house with hopes and dreams of making a difference. Camarena worked his way through college, served in the Marines and became a police ofcer. When he decided to join the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, his mother tried to talk him out it. I cant not do this, he told her. Im only one person, but I want to make a difference. The DEA sent Camarena to work undercover in Mexico investigating a major drug cartel believed to include ofcers in the Mexican army, police and government. On Feb. 7, 1985, the 37-year-old Camarena left his ofce to meet his wife for lunch. Five men appeared at the agents side and shoved him in a car. One month later, Camarenas body was found in a shallow grave. He had been tortured to death. Within weeks of his death in March of 1985, Camarenas Congressman, Duncan Hunter, and high school friend Henry Lozano, launched Camarena Clubs in Imperial Valley, California, Camarenas home. Hundreds of club members pledged to lead drug-free lives to honor the sacrices made by Camarena and others on behalf of all Americans. These coalitions began to wear red badges of satin, red ribbons, as a symbol of Camarenas memory. The Red Ribbon Week campaign emerged from the efforts of these clubs and coalitions. Today, Red Ribbon Week is nationally recognized and celebrated, helping to preserve Special Agent Camarenas memory and further the cause for which he gave his life. The Red Ribbon Campaign also became a symbol of support for the DEAs efforts to reduce demand for drugs through prevention and education programs. By wearing a red ribbon during the last week in October, Americans demonstrate their ardent opposition to drugs. They pay homage not only to Special Agent Camarena, but to all men and women who have made the ultimate sacrice in support of our nations struggle against drug trafcking and abuse.

By Will Smith Greene Publishing, Inc.Its a well-known fact of football law that on the heels of an emotionally draining victory, a team can sometimes struggle to make headway against the competition, whether they be mice or men. The Warriors learned all too well the merit of this concept as they played one of the largest schools on this years schedule and consequently dropped a frustrating loss to non-conference opponent Bishop Snyder by a score of 42-21, just one game removed from their last-second heroics in Quincy. After what will forever be remembered as The Comeback in Aucilla lore, a game in which the Warriors stormed back from a three touchdown decit to demoralize arch-rival Munroe, the Boys in Blue faced a talented and physical Cardinals team that had averaged 33 bruising points a game en route to a 6-1 record. The Warriors showed signs of life throughout the game, but poor play in the trenches doomed their efforts to failure. Bishop Snyder enjoyed an advantage often apparent for the opponents of Aucilla: size, both in terms of student population and occupational functionality. While Aucilla boasts a high school enrollment of 108, Bishop Snyder exceeds 480 students, and competes in class 3A sports in the FHSAA. However, as head coach Colby Roberts explained, excuses are not something that the Warriors nd acceptable. We lost, and thats the end of it. We never want to let ourselves be in the position of justifying our mistakes. We could have won the football game, no matter if they had 10,000 kids. We made errors tonight that would beat any team, any day. Its time to go back to the drawing board and gure out how to plug the holes on this roster, so that this hopefully does not happen again. The real story of this game can be summed in one statement: the bigger they are, the harder they hit. Bishop Snyders advantage was clear as soon as the rst snap of the ball; a tall, lanky, leverage-inducing offensive and defensive line that simply outmatched the Warriors and paved the way to a brutal rushing game plan that ended the game quickly and decisively, while limiting Aucilla to a season-low 45 yards rushing. Aucilla found the moxie to answer on several occasions, hanging tight with the Bishop Snyder offense until well into the fourth quarter, when a lack of roster depth nally buried their hopes under mounting Cardinals points. This game began much in the same way as the Munroe game did: Bishop Snyder broke a long rush down the sidelines for a touchdown within the rst few minutes of the opening kick that seemed to portend a long evening for the Warrior faithful, until senior running back Brandon Holm took a simple screen pass from his slot position 65 yards for an answering score that gained back valuable momentum. Holm once again delivered in a time of need for his teammates that evening, proving with each passing week to be invaluable to the Warrior offense, especially in the wake of all-purpose back Timothy Burress injury at the end of the game against Munroe. Holm nished the game with 12 receptions for 198 yards and two scores, while also contributing 35 rushing yards on 10 carries. For the season so far, Holm has averaged 158 yards receiving and rushing each week that he has played to go along with eight touchdowns. The passing game was really all that kept Aucilla in contention, and a lot of the credit is deserved by junior signal caller Austin Bishop. Bishop had one of his best nights of the season, completing 72 percent of his passes for 303 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. The youngster really seems to be catching his stride, building a clear rapport with his receivers that was lacking earlier in the year as Bishop made the transition to playing quarterback for the rst time in his career. Senior receiver Casey Demott also had a solid evening, catching ve passes for 77 yards and a score. Demott brings some much-needed size to the equation for which defensive coordinators must account. There wasnt much to be excited about outside of those few offensive bright spots, however, as the defense folded under the pressure of a constant mixture of inside running and off-tackle counters that expertly controlled the ball and left little chance for the Warrior offense to answer. The defense failed to make consistent momentum-turning splash plays, lacking any turnovers or sacks, and the offenses last gasp efforts fell at as the clock nally read zero. Leading the defensive unit in statistics this week was junior linebacker Cole Schwab, who totaled 14 tackles; linebacker Holm, who contributed 12 tackles; and freshman new addition Austin Harrell, who from his linebacking position totaled 10 tackles. Aucilla will look to get back on track this Saturday evening against opponent Baconton Charter, which will be the Warriors last away contest of the season. Baconton has struggled so far this year, currently with a 2-6 record and an anemic offense that scores an average of 13.5 points per game. The game will begin in Baconton, Georgia, at 7:00 p.m. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, October 23, 2013 10A Madison County CarrierSPORTS BAILEY MONUMENT CO 740252Cowboys Varsity Falls To Indians; JV Falls To War EaglesBy Jacob BembryGreene Publishing, Inc.

www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, October 23, 2013 12A Madison County CarrierAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY Womans Club And Garden Club Hold Annual Joint MeetingBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Sometimes people gather to celebrate, other times they gather to mourn. And sometimes, they gather to do both. The Madison Garden Club and Madison Womans Club held their annual joint meeting to celebrate the lives of six members who had passed away during the previous year, many of them members of both clubs. In 1983, Willie Clare Copeland began the tradition of planting oak trees in honor of deceased club members, a tradition that continues today, 165 trees later. In 2005, a tree in honor of Copeland was planted on the west side of the gazebo in Four Freedoms Park. At this years joint meeting, the Garden Club and Womans Club was honoring six ladies with tree dedications. Family members who were guests at the meeting spoke briey about their loved one, or if no family was present, Princess Akerman or another close friend did the honors. Rachel Reichmann Rachel Reichmann served a term as president of the Garden Club, and was president of the Womans Club no less than three times during her years of membership there. She was also very active in her church and in the community. Daughters Raye Wooley and Nell Ring remembered her as a loving mother, the best of the best as Ring put it. She loved her community, she loved the (family-owned) drug store, and she loved Madison, said Wooley. We were lucky to have her at home for her last days. Miss Rachel, as she was known, passed away shortly after her 101stbirthday, in the same house, in the same room where she was born. She always said Im going to go to glory in that house, and she did, Wooley told the audience, adding that her mother had always tried to live by the scripture, Seek ye rst the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33) Lauretta Bottomley Describing herself as a transplanted Yankee lady, Lauretta Bottomley was an instructor at North Florida Junior College, and she was passionate about teaching reading. Before she worked at the college, she taught at the Madison Middle School. In describing Bottomleys love of teaching, Princess Akerman showed the audience an example of a childrens book Bottomley had handwritten, complete with illustrations, which she used to read to her students. She was also an active member of the First United Methodist Church, especially its mission program. She was often known to house visiting missionaries in her home. Marjorie Woodard Akerman remembers Marjorie Woodard as one of her neighbors, who used to live on the same street. She was a member of the First Baptist Church, a church secretary and an association secretary for many years as well as being a member of the choir. A lifelong resident of Madison County, she was born in the Lee area, and later joined the local genealogical society. She believed in the importance of family and enjoyed tracing family roots and helping people learn their family history. Ruby Ulm Frances Mercer spoke of her memories of Ruby Ulm, an educator and a mentor for Take Stock In Children. She was a part of Hickory Grove United Methodist Church, and that church was her love and her life for many years. Ruby loved to talk and she loved people, said Mercer. Like Mercer, she was also a part of the Pink Ladies organization at the hospital. She made a great Italian cream cake. Ive known Ruby most of my life. We traveled together after her retirement...she was a great friend, she loved people. And she did wear many hats. Jean Brandies Betty Williams recalls the outspoken Jean Brandies saying that if you werent born in Madison, youd never belong. Being a transplant from Tallahassee, she may have believed that once, but as time went by, Jean came to belong to Madison more and more, being chosen Citizen of the Year, taking part in her church, in Take Stock in Children and being in charge of the Toys for Tots program for at least 20 years, if not longer. Over time, it was Jean who came to shoulder much of the responsibility for the rental of the Womans Club, taking care of showings, clean-ups and lock-ups afterward. Many times, Jean could be seen up at the clubhouse late into the evening, locking up after an event was over or taking care of some other little logistical detail. During the Christmas season her help was invaluable. I have a lot of memories of Jean, said Williams. Happy memories. Funny memories. Family member Maggie Davis added that if Brandies knew of someone who had a need, even if she didnt know the people personally, she would be there to help, because, as Brandies would teach her, this is was what growing up in a small town means. Frances Sanders Frances Sanders, a Pink Lady, an avid Gator fan and a member of the First United Methodist Church choir, ran a kindergarten in her home. Jean Coody also ran a kindergarten in her home, and for many, many years, the people of Madison spoke of the two kindergartens as Miss Jeans and Miss Frances schools. Later, Miss Frances was the middle school librarian, where she was one to not only think outside the box, but to jump right out of it in her quest to educate the children she took under her wing. She began the Kids Culture Club, introducing children to their history, teaching them manners and making them aware of their community. She was also known to take children on tours of the Mansion, dressed up in full antebellum regalia. In so many ways, Miss Frances was one of a kind.

www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, October 23, 2013 Madison County Carrier 13A By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Dr. Marie Amanze of Hematology Oncology Solutions, the only female oncologist in private practice in Tallahassee, has always been interested in the health care profession in some form, pretty much all my life, she says. In her native country of Haiti, health care was something that was not available to everyone, but when she came to the United States in 1986, she was amazed at the access almost everyone had to health care and health care professionals. In 1994, she started medical school at the University of South Florida College of Medicine, with her heart set on becoming an OB/GYN. In the area of medicine, what could be more joyful than delivering babies? Then, her focus changed to internal medicine, because that was the foundation that all other medicine was built on. While she was doing her residency, she met Dr. Nathan Levitan, who would get her started in the direction of oncology. He was the image of what she believed a doctor ought to be, a person of compassion, someone who was respectful to everyone from the janitor to his colleagues. Here, she believed, was a health care professional she could model herself after. He invited her to work in his clinic, and after two or three times of doing so, she saw that oncology was a eld where compassion would go a long way, and she saw herself as a compassionate person. Although there would be sad moments, and she would lose some patients, she realized that even for terminal patients, she could make a difference in their quality of life. She has now been in oncology since 2001, four years on a fellowship and eight years working in Tallahassee. At rst, she was part of a group practice with ve other individuals, but the problem was, with six oncologists in the same room, there would be six different opinions. After the group dissolved, she eventually formed her own practice. Going solo wasnt what she had envisioned for herself. She missed not having a whole group of colleagues to talk to and bounce ideas off of, but after a year and half as a private practitioner, she has found that the support and mentoring is still there. She can email colleagues and refer patients to them and they can refer patients to her. She has also discovered that she is not only good at oncology, she is good at the business side of private practice as well. Then there is the autonomy. Hospitals are buying up other practices and this autonomy is being lost left and right. She has a wonderful support staff that she was able to choose herself. I cant say enough about them...we work well together. At Hematology Oncology Solutions, she sees patients in all stages of illnesses, from pre-diagnosis to treatment to support services and patient education to postchemotherapy. She can start with patients from the very beginning or take them in the middle as referrals from another doctor. She treats a wide variety of cancers: colon cancer, lung cancer, head and neck cancer, breast cancer, lymphomas and other blood disorders such as sickle cell anemia and other types of anemia...basically, a little bit of everything. When it comes to breast cancer, a womans rst line of defense is, Know your body. That means breast self-exams. Mammograms are very important too, and she doesnt downplay the importance of regular mammograms, But you know when something is abnormal for you...when something isnt right. Listen to your gut instincts. When a woman nds a lump or something else that shouldnt be there, or nds something that just isnt right, The only mistake is in not getting help, she says. The eld of oncology has come a long, long way in the last few years, and there are treatment options available now that werent there only a few short years ago. There is this sense, when it comes to breast cancer, that no matter what stage it is, you can make a difference. Because of this, things like breast cancer awareness and Breast Cancer Awareness Month are positive things, she believes. It lets women know that they are not alone, that there are people out there who can help them. It lets them know that breast cancer is not their fault. We live in a good era when cancer is an open conversation, she says, unlike the era of 30, 40 or 50 years ago, when women lived in fear of the cword and were afraid to discuss the subject openly.

Path of Faith 2B Madison County Carrier Wednesday, October 23, 2013

PAGE 19

Madison County Carrier Wednesday, October 23, 2013 3B Path of Faith Seventy-five years ago this week, millions of ordinary Americans were convinced that the world was coming to an end. They came to this conclusion, not because Hitler was rattling his sabers in Europe and the entire world teetered on the verge of war. Rather, these fears were fueled by a broadcast aired from a small CBS radio studio in New York City. Orson Welles took to the airways on October 30, 1938 as the usual host of the Mercury Theater, and using the science fiction book, War of the Worlds as his script, described in dramatic and fictional detail with that unmistakable voice of his how Martians had invaded Earth, landing in Grover Mills, New Jersey. There were 32 million radio listeners that evening, and none with 24-hour news, Twitter, Google, or text messages to learn from the world around them. Thus, the nation was thrown into a terrifying hysteria that simply could not be duplicated today. Telephone lines were clogged; police stations were overrun; anxious mobs filled the streets; churches ran over with impromptu prayer meetings; and citizens barricaded and armed themselves. There is a Christian equivalent to this kind of unnerving fear and panic. It pours from radio and television stations, podcasts and pulpits, from books, periodicals, and websites. The oft-presented Christian version of the Apocalypse is initiated not by a Martian invasion, but by Jesus violent and destructive return to earth. Jesus is coming back! they say. There will be few survivors, but if you do survive the initial onslaught, you will be left behind to suffer the vengeance of the glory of the Lord, as He tramples out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored. These Orson Welleses of our day sell millions of fictional books, movies, computer games, CDs, audios, videos, T-shirts, calendars, and greeting cards with their shrink-wrapped, prepackaged, fear-mongering. Personally, Im very well acquainted with this kind of mania. Growing up in the revivalistic tradition, almost weekly the pastor would tell us how the universe was about to come unwrapped and how very few of us were going to make it through the Jesus-invasion. As a self-centered child and teenager, I felt that if Jesus had waited all these centuries to show up on earth at this particular blip in history just to interrupt my life, it was fairly discourteous on His part to do so. As I have gotten older, however, I see a more pronounced difficulty with constant end-of-the-world preaching. Entire congregations of people become so obsessively convinced that we are living in the final chapter of human history on the last page, if not within the last sentence that they begin to give away the future. Ultimately, it is extremely difficult to give ones self to today, to incarnate Gods love for the world, to alleviate the grotesque levels of suffering on this planet, or to practice justice, peace-making, ...Story continued on 4B...H o p e O v e r H y s t e r i a

Its all going to burn up in ashes any minute now. Unbalanced apocalypticism simply makes it easy to give up on today. It fosters a view of the future that is dark and sinister. It creates a kind of apathy and hopelessness toward the planet. We become little more than caricatures of todays politicians who choose to kick the worst problems down the street for another generation to wrestle with, long after they have left office. We become freakish doomsday preparers, who misunderstand that the best preparation is joining God in his transforming work rather than watching the clock for the end of the world. No, God is not slow about keeping his promises, but the truth is that Jesus will prob ably not return today, and its not likely He will return in our lifetime. Therefore, we have to be more than prepared for his imminent return. We must be prepared to persevere. We must trade in our misapplied hysteria for living out a very real hope, the Blessed Hope. We must learn to live in the actual here and now, not the hypothetical tomorrow. Ronnie McBrayer is a syndicated columnist, pastor, and author of multiple books.

Path of Faith 8B Madison County Carrier Wednesday, October 23, 2013 The Journey Of Kenny Munds: From The Grand Ole Opry To Honey Lake Church By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc. A journey of almost 40 years has led Kenny Munds from Oklahoma to Asuza Pacific University in California to the Grand Ole Opry and eventually to being the associate pastor at Honey Lake Church in Greenville. Munds comes to the church after being involved in full-time prison ministry for four years. He is now involved in it part-time. He has a website dedicated to the ministry at www.kennymundsministries.com. Munds was at Asuza Pacific, a Christian college, which he left in embarrassment after getting drunk and running a ladder up to his girlfriends dorm room window. He was caught and suspended from school for a week. After the week was up, he did not return to school, even though he had only 17 credit hours left to graduate. In 2000, almost 30 years later, he would return and get his degree. Munds would later join a group of friends and they would form the group Brush Arbor, which competed in a country music contest, sponsored by KSON Radio in San Diego, Calif. The band would win and earn a chance to perform with Johnny Cash on the Grand Ole Opry, as well as receiving a recording contract with Capital Records. We ended up winning two Academy of Country Music awards in 1973, Munds said, for Vocal Group and for Touring Band of the Year. Despite the groups success, there were some personnel changes in the group, including bringing in a new band member who had some influence on Munds. Everyone else in the band was pretty straight-laced but the drummer and Kenny were rebels, Munds remembers. Personality clashes and jealousy dogged the band and they eventually voted Munds, the lead singer, out. That band stayed together for another 28 years, Munds said. Munds began drinking and drugging and ended up in a marriage that lasted eight months. I dont know if we were really even married, he said. I never saw any papers. Munds continued to get drunk and do drugs and get married. He has been marrid four times total. I felt like I could make it on my own, he said, but the Lord had other plans for me. He took a mess and made it a message. Munds said that when he was younger, he had sworn that he would never be like his father, who was a heavy drinker but as an adult, he had become like him. On a Los Angeles freeway in 1990, Munds was driving an old car and the windows of the car wouldnt roll up. He was trying to do a line of cocaine but the powder kept blowing back in his face from the wind blowing in the windowless doors. He saw the beer cans that littered his car, along with burn stains in the car from joints he had smoked and he saw his unhappy face in the mirror. I pulled off the road and told God, I dont know what to do. Ive had enough of it. Gods reply to Munds was: Why dont you give yourself to me so I can show you what I can do? Munds went to see a friend he had met earlier. The friend happened to be the executive director of one of the biggest drug rehab centers in Los Angeles. On Feb. 7, 1990, I walked into the Acton Rehab Center, Munds said. I have been clean and sober ever since. On Oct. 14, 1994, Munds would rededicate his life to Christ. That was the last day I smoked, he said. Later, Munds would remarry. I was looking for Snow White and I got the seven dwarfs, he said, jokingly. I married a woman with seven children. The marriage would last nine years. Even though I had quit drinking and doing drugs, I still had some things that needed to be fixed, he said. One of the issues that Munds needed to fix was his temper. He had gone back to college and gotten his degree and had become a schoolteacher. Munds said that having to deal with kids all day at school and having to go home to seven children may have had to do with his temper becoming more and more volatile. The couple eventually divorced and Munds had to leave their hometown in California because everything there reminded him of his wife. He packed his bags and moved to Arizona, where his nieces lived. In Arizona, he became a platform speaker for Bill Glass Ministries and eventually started his own prison ministry. Through Bill Glass, he met Bob Williamson, owner of Honey Lake Plantation and pastor at Honey Lake Church. A couple of months ago, Williamson called Munds and asked him to be the associate pastor at the church. Munds prayed about it and talked with several pastors that he knew about it and, while still considering it, he joked, that Bob called me up and made up my mind for me. The first weekly church service will be held at Honey Lake on Sunday morning, Nov. 3. That afternoon, beginning at 2 p.m., there will be a gospel jamboree that will feature LifeSong, as well as other groups. Munds said that Honey Lake Church is looking for volunteers, including musicians to help form a praise team. Munds said one thing that he wants others to know is, I care about people. I dont put on airs. Im transparent, maybe too much. I do my best to make people comfortable and to make them feel at home. If you would like to hear Munds sing, he has products available on iTunes and CDBaby.com and also videos to watch on YouTube. Kenny Munds

Madison County Carrier Wednesday, October 23,2013 9B Path of Faith Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. Proverbs 14:34 A nation rises and falls with its leadership. If history is an indicator, then America is in deep trouble. Jesus said, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth. (Luke 11:17) The Gospel of Mark says it like this, And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. (Mark 3:24-25) This being the case, we, the American people as a whole, must return to God and humble ourselves before Him. We must plead for mercy and for forgiveness. Our sins, which are many, are crying out against us. They are providing the evidence against us for judgment, and they are provoking God to wrath. God will use them to indict this nation in judgment. I urge you to join with me in fasting and praying for our nation; to heed the call of Nehemiah to fight for our brethren, families, homes, and country. (Nehemiah 4:14) I know this is a serious and somber message but it is one in which we must give heed. The consequences of judgment are too dreadful to ignore. Please join me today in prayer for our nation and leadership before we reach the place in which God will not hear us. And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.

Path of Faith 10B Madison County Carrier Wednesday, October 23, 2013 Harmony Baptist Church Supports Slavic Missionary Outreach Dear Friend of the Ark Singers, This summer has passed very quickly. What is it, we remember the most? What were we able to accomplish? This summer we spent a couple of Christian childrens camps in different parts of the Donetsk region. I would especially like to talk about the youth labor camp, which was held in Galitsinovke in the period from July 15 to August 16. During this period, young people visited the camp of the seven churches of Donetsk region of churches in Dimitrovo, House of the Gospel, Grace, Gethsemane, Krasnogorovka, Avdeyevka and Chaykino. Each day begins with a brief time of worship and prayer, followed by a planning session. Before lunch, all engaged in physical labor by cleaning the area, digging trenches for communications, unloading building materials and more. After lunch, there was free time. The time after dinner was used to worship, and have interesting conversation, that sometimes lasted well into the evening around the fire. This month was a lot of hands of young people and teenagers, a lot of brothers and experts who reconstructed the roof of the main building, making internal repairs to the dining room and in the shower, changed the windows and doors of the main building. A special thank you to those who prayed for this work, and all those who donated their funds for reconstruction. In June, we were in different churches of America, which also offered the brothers and sisters to participate in our work. Thank you to everyone who donated to one or more square meter reconstruction of the roof of the main building. Now the roof is already on, now you need to make the inner workings of the main building a matter of prayer and giving. Showers also are ready, as is the dining room. We are continuing to work on the restrooms. Many are waiting for the end repairs, there to carry out all sorts of Christian activities for all ages of the eastern region of Ukraine. It certainly is not easy, but we believe that for God nothing is impossible. For many years our country did not have the Christian centers or Christian camps. Today, we can now have such things, but they require a great financial investment. But these facilities make it possible to have such great blessings, as educating young people and children, as well as conducting training seminars, and conferences for all ages. Our needs are great! Would you please pray with us? You may send your check to:Slavic Missionary Outreach 145 NW Harmony Church Way Greenville, FL 32331.Blessings! Anatolij Berestovoj.

Path of Faith Madison County Carrier Wednesday, October 23, 2013 11B The Great Commission: The Ends Of The Earth! By Dan Fisher The following is part of a series on the Great Commission. This series is written by Dan Fisher, who has been involved in ministry since he was 15 years old. A former pastor, Fisher holds Masters degrees in Biblical Studies and Pastoral Studies from Faith Baptist Theological Seminary in Ankeny, Iowa, as well as a bachelors degree from Appalachian Bible College in Bradley, W. Va. Each week, we will run another portion of the series until it is complete. Fisher resides in Madison County. The Great Commission contains only two commands from Jesus Christ: Make Disciples and Preach the Gospel. Today, as I examine the extent of the mission that Jesus Christ gave to the Church, and to every individual within His Church, I am asking You, LORD Jesus to search my heart and life to conform me to Your plan for reaching the world with Your Gospel. Mark 16:15, And He said to them, When you are going into all the world, preach the gospel to every creature. Marks account takes into account that Christs followers would move throughout the world. In fact, history indicates that persecution caused the followers of Jesus to flee from Jerusalem into other regions of the world. Today, God moves in the hearts of those called to be Missionaries to go into foreign lands to carry the Gospel. Every individual follower of Jesus Christ should obey the Great Commission to spread the seeds of the Gospel wherever we go. Acts 1:8, But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. Lukes account of the Great Commission is the most geographically detailed of the five accounts. Here, the LORD Jesus taught that once the Holy Spirit came upon His followers (the birth of the Church) that the natural outcome would occur: His followers would testify of His saving grace, we would proclaim the Gospel. And, that proclamation would follow geographical lines as a pattern for all true believers to spread the Gospel. The early Church carried the Gospel throughout Jerusalem. They talked of Jesus Christ in the Temple and in and around their houses. They talked of Him as they did their daily work. It is the natural course of life to talk of what is happening in ones life. Jesus was happening in the lives of those in the newborn Church, and they naturally spoke of Him. They proclaimed the Gospel in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. The significance of those regions mentioned is interesting: Jerusalem was their neighborhood; Judea was the surrounding region; Samaria was the regional boundary of those socially outcast that no one would talk to or want to be seen around; and the ends of the earth covered everywhere else. The Gospel should have no boundaries! Matthew 28:19, Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations .... Matthews account of the Great Commission deals with the targeted people. All nations included first the Jews who lived among other Jews; then, it included Jews living among Gentiles; and finally, it included even Gentiles! This is Jesus campaign for world conquest with the Gospel! The word translated nations here is the word from which we get ethnicity. Every people group, with none left out! We are not to discriminate in our proclamation of the Gospel. Why? Because in the end, every people group will be singing a new song in Heaven praising their Savior as part of Gods plan! Revelation 5:9, And they sang a new song, saying: You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation... LORD Jesus, help me today to see opportunities You appoint for me to declare the Gospel. Help me not to miss even one. Please do not let me restrict that proclamation by my preconceived ideas or my bias. Give me a heart like Yours so that I love others like You love them. Thank you for the mission You have given me. Help me to be faithful in it today! I love You, LORD Jesus!
