Usually, the bus lets him out at the end of his driveway, but on that particular afternoon, he was let off beside Madison County Highway 145. The ve-year-old child went looking for help and was eventually found and returned to his home around 6 p.m., as recalled by his mother, Kasey Brown, who was upset when the bus didnt show up at the usual time and her son went missing. The Madison County School District has been investigating the incident and will review transportation policies and procedures at their next school board meeting. The childs family plans to be at the March 18 meeting to address school ofcials over the matter. The School Board meeting is 6 p.m., March 18, in the School Board Ofce, 210 NE Duval Avenue.Miss Madison County Pageant Slated For April 5 At 7 p.m. Baby to Junior Miss Pageant April 5 At 10 a.m.Applications for the annual Miss Madison County pageant are available and plans for this years pageant are underway.

Mosley Lee Barfield: Volunteering Prolonged My LifeBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Ilike to give people compliments while theyre living, when they can hear em, said Deloris Jones at the County Commission meeting, where she had come to thank the commissioners for their help in supporting the Senior Center and when money for Elder Care services was tight. She also wanted to introduce to them one of the Centers hardest-working volunteers, Mosley Lee Barfield, and present her with an award for Volunteer of the Year on behalf of the Center. During the time of fiscal emergency, it was the volunteers who pulled together and raised over $1000 to keep Elder Care Services going, and one of the hardest working volunteers was Barfield. Barfield, who already had an armload of plaques and accolades for her hard work and volunteer efforts over the years, including Volunteer of the year for 2011 and 2012, took the podium to accept yet another award and explain what volunteering meant to her. She first came to the Senior Center in 1987, saw a need and started volunteering with arts and crafts, Meals on Wheels, and driving a van to Valdosta to help seniors run errands. She also serves in the Consolidated Christian Ministries food pantry. I believe this program has prolonged my life, said Barfield. When we retire, we need to give back to the community.

Its Girl Scout cookie time! I absolutely love Girl Scout cookies. I love it when I see tables loaded down with the familiar bright boxes, set up in front of grocery or home-good stores, joyfully being sold by girls with brown or green sashes. I usually only buy one box at a time so I can buy from as many different girls as my wallet and waistline allow. The very rst box that I look for and take home is the green box of Thin Mints that holds not only my favorite, but that of the top 25 percent of cookie buyers as well, making it the Girl Scouts' top-selling cookie. A woman I previously worked with would buy a whole case of the mint cookies and store them in her freezer. I tried to do the same, one time. Her goal was to have the cookies all year. Unfortunately, I discovered I liked them frozen and my cookies did not last that long. If you want (need) Girl Scout cookies but can no longer nd them locally, no worries, you can now nd them online. You can go to the Girl Scout site and use their cookie nder. While youre there, you can search the site to learn the history of the cookies and get answers to a slew of frequently asked questions that are not only informative, but interesting as well. One of the things you can check out is the variety of cookies now available. Some of them I have seen, and tasted, but some I have yet to see, at least on the tables I have patronized. One of the newer ones, Savannah Smiles, I did buy this past weekend. They remind me of a cookie that my parents used to buy when I was a child, Lemon Coolers. They are crunchy, sweet with confectioners sugar, tart with lemon, and a now close second to Thin Mints as far as my favorites. One of the things I was hoping to nd on my Girl Scout cookie quest, while online, was a recipe using the cookies. I have heard of recipes using the cookies, but had never searched for any, until now. The Thin Mint recipes for pie and trufes tempted me, and the recipes using Peanut Butter Patties sounded wonderful, but what I ended up printing from the website (but not yet making) was a recipe developed by a Girl Scout in Washington, who earned her baking badge and followed that accomplishment by entering a Girl Scout baking contest using the Savannah Smiles cookies. With spring right around the corner, the tarts sound decadent but refreshing. Looks like Ill be heading back out to buy more cookies, and if I cant nd them on the street, or on the Girl Scout site, I also discovered while online, I can buy them on eBay.Isaw an interview recently of reality television star Mike Roe of the popular show Dirty Jobs. He was talking about the need for working class people with vocational education. That interview got me to thinking about the state of our education and the goals of young people entering the workforce. In the current economy, the unemployment rate among millennials entering the workforce is pretty bad. More than 20 million of them have moved back home to live with mom and dad. Is it because they are unprepared for work or have unrealistic expectations? Im counseling a young couple that plan to marry this summer. The woman graduated a decade ago from Valdosta State with a degree in Communications and found that it wasnt too useful. Now, shes training in occupational therapy. Back to Mike Roe, he said that hes working with a specialized vocational school in Jacksonville that needs to train 800 welders for current vacancies in local shipyards. Theyre having problems recruiting applicants for this very viable career path. What are high school guidance counselors telling their students? Fifty years ago, high schoolers took courses in industrial arts and home economics to prepare themselves for useful occupations after graduation. What happened to education like that? My personal opinion is that we are sending far too many young people to college with an unclear (and often unrealistic) picture for what lies ahead. Theyre incurring huge student loans in the process which, if you stop and think about it, is a form of economic slavery. An even greater travesty is when they incur this debt to obtain degrees that have dubious utility in todays job market. Speaking of useful public school curriculum, what about education in subjects dealing with personal nance such as banking; investing; debt management; budgeting? Are we teaching young people what they need to know to be successful in their personal life? Many high school graduates dont know what to do with their lives. I encourage them, whenever I get a chance, to enlist in the military, learn a skill, gain maturity, and put away money for education. The Obama Administrations decision to shrink the military will make that choice more difcult, but we often lose sight that the military is the largest job-training program in our nation. Im constantly looking across the news spectrum for new trends in economic activity. Thats where I would want to aim my career path if I were young. For example, there is a huge boom pending in the western Gulf Coast for liqueed natural gas (LNG). Apparently a better, more economical method to transport natural gas, particularly across oceans, is the LNG state. Imagine all the jobs (welders, electricians, construction, etc.) that will be required to allow this new industry to get off the ground. Location is also very important. Young people entering the job market need to look outside the comfort zone where they were raised to nd new employment opportunities. Not many people live in North Dakota, but it is experiencing huge economic growth because of the energy boom in the western part of the state. While I really believe in college, from my experience, it isnt for everyone. We must look at an individuals competence and interests, then steer them into education and elds of study that properly match. When I see a young person that likes to work with their hands, I think thats great. I would steer them into a vocational eld that matches their skill and has a good prospect for a well-paying job. Lets never fall into the trap of belittling a trade or craft that is desperately needed, like plumbing, welding, electrical, construction, transportation, etc. These are great careers that are very necessary in a modern society. When the toilet starts to leak, you arent going to call a poet or dance instructor, are you? Yes, I have multiple degrees, but I also learned at an early age how to work with my hands. Before I turned 19, my grandmother (Dads side) took me aside at a family gathering and made it a point to complement me on my ability to work hard with my back as well as my mind. Ive never forgotten that conversation and the lesson she taught me. She was a professional educator (and very religious), but she was also the product of a farm family. She understood the value of hard work. How do I sum up this subject? Learn about life at an early age. Aim your education toward a viable job market. Adapt for future employment. Work hard. Set personal goals and develop a strategy to achieve them. The American Dream is still alive for those who truly seek it.www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, March 12, 2014 2A Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS Letter To The Editor National SecurityJoe Boyles Guest ColumnistGirl Scout Cookies! Searching For AmbrosiaBlue Collar Rose KleinColumnistBlack History Should be Taught All Year LongWow. I was reading several documents the other day and came across some interesting little known black history facts that even some of our pupils who graduated summa cum laude may not know. Do you realize that most of us, including many in higher education could not properly answer many questions related to black history, even if you promise to give them a brand new shiny Kennedy Fifty Cents coin? Lets see. Did you know that a major part of Amelia Island near Jacksonville was once owned by blacks? Yes, this business venture was led by a black man from Madison County, Florida named Abraham Lincoln Lewis. This fact is substantiated by Dr. Kevin McCarthy, who taught for 37 years at my alma mater, the University of Florida. He chronicles this accomplishment in his book entitled African American sites in Florida. Dr. McCarthy goes further to note that with only $100, A. L. Lewis (1865-1947) was a principal founder of the Afro-American Industrial and Benet Association, which later became the AfroAmerican Life Insurance Company, formerly one of the largest businesses in Florida. He was the man behind the 200 acre American Beach in Nassau County. A beach developed specically to accommodate blacks during a time when it was illegal for us to enjoy ourselves at any other public beach in America. Ironically, it was named American Beach. Hey, young scholars, did anyone ever tell you that a black slave named York accompanied Lewis and Clark on their westward expeditions across America commencing in 1803? Well, according to Wikipedia, York was born in 1770 and is described as a large, strong man who was a guide and interpreter when dealing with the Native Americans. In addition, can you tell us about A.G. Gaston? Based on a book by Carol Jenkins and Elizabeth Hines entitled Black Titan: A.G. Gaston and the Making of a Black American Millionaire, he was a maverick and a far sighted philanthropist. The authors, when speaking of him say the grandson of slaves, born into poverty in 1892 in the Deep South, died at age 103, more than a century later with a fortune worth well over $130 million and a business empire spanning communications, real estate, funeral homes, and insurance. If given a major exam today, how many of our Associate Professors would be able to correctly tell us about the legacy of Henrietta Lacks? This black lady was a wife and mother of ve whose cells became immortal upon her death at age 31 of cervical cancer. You see, they have helped to save the lives of millions of people worldwide. Her cells known as HeLa became the rst to not die and reproduce a line that continues to this day. Hence, innumerable biomedical research experiments have been successful as a result of her unwittingly donating them to science. While this phenomenon has yielded billions of dollars in prot for many biomedical and pharmaceutical companies, her family is still yet to receive one dime. I bet many of our recent exceptional high school, and magna cum laude college graduates might just miss the answer to our next question. Who was Reginald Lewis? Based on a prole found at an Info please website, he was a black man who graduated from Harvard Law School in 1968. He later opened TLC Group, a venture capital rm that in 1987 bought a considerable share of Beatrice International Foods for $985 million. His subsidiary had sales of $2.2 billion in 1996 and was ranked number 512 on Fortune magazines list of 1,000 largest companies. Moreover, his 1992 gift to Harvard Law School was the largest single donation the school had received at that time. Accordingly, for a bonus question worth 25 points, lets see whether our salutatorians can answer this one. Who in the world is Junior Bridgeman? Relying upon Thebiglead webpages, Mr. Bridgeman is a former National Basketball Association player (Milwaukee Bucks) who now owns 196 Wendys franchises and over 100 Chilis restaurants. According to the St. Louis Business Journal, anyone interested in purchasing a Wendys franchise must have a minimum net worth of $5 million, including at least $2 million of liquid assets. It is noteworthy to add that Junior is a black male that was raised in the tough neighborhoods of East Chicago, Indiana. So, congratulations to each of you who were able to answer all of the aforementioned questions accurately. We will label you as gifted scholars in African American History. For the rest who did not fare as well, then dont fret. Just simply write your local school boards and ask them to be sure that black history becomes a mandatory part of the curriculum calendar and is taught all year long. And remember, the gospel says in Luke 17:5: And the Apostles said to the Lord, Increase our Faith. Young people, go ahead and ask the Lord to increase your faith, and you too can accomplish your goals just as did the astonishing individuals mentioned earlier within this article. Rev. Gene Hall Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Rose Klein, March 10, 2014Thin Mints, my favorite variety of Girl Scout cookies, and the organizations top-selling cookie.

Rodney Somerville was gardening at his home when the deadly snake bit him on the nger. After hitting the snake in the head with a shovel, the 54year-old decided to have at least one last beer. I said to myself, if Im going to cark it, Im going to have a beer, so I got a Goldie out of the fridge and drank that; cause you know eastern browns are the second most venomous snake in the world, Somerville said. If you panic, it makes it worse. He called the ambulance and was given the anti-venom, but suffered an allergic reaction to the medicine and is still in the hospital three weeks later, which Somerville calls a double whammy.T e a c h e r S h o w s S e x u a l I m a g e O f H e r s e l f I n C l a s s r o o m In Little Rock, Ark., a middle school teacher accidentally incorporated a sexual picture of herself with her students class work. The Forest Heights Middle School teacher made a mistake while trying to play something from her iCloud account and transferred the inappropriate picture to her middle school students classroom iPads. The teacher sent a statement to parents, apologizing for the mistake. The schools technology team wiped all eight iPads clean and reset them.M a n T r a p p e d I n S t o r m D r a i n T w o D a y s A f t e r C h a s i n g $ 2 0 B i l l In Lawton, Okla., a man who chased a $20 bill into a storm drain ended up trapped underground for two days. The man was discovered by a group of teenagers walking home from school. Lawton Police Sgt., John Chelenza said, Thats the rst time in going on 28 years that we have found somebody down in a storm drain. Police ofcerin-training Alicia Redding said the man seemed very disoriented. He did not remember what day it was. He wasnt sure how long he had been down there. Chelenza said, He had a bump on his head, he may have hit his head against a wall down there because its obviously pretty dark unless he is next to a storm drain where light could get into, Chelenza said. The man was unable to locate his $20 bill.

By Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.The Rajun Cajun Bar & Grill in Lake Park, Ga., is a family sports bar, known for their wings, fried gator tail and homemade Cajun specialties, but for those needing a milder repast, you can also choose from fresh seafood dishes, handcut steaks, freshly shucked oysters or homemade burgers. While waiting for your food, there is no reason to be bored, as the restaurant offers plenty of entertainment. Rajun Cajun has a separate room where diners can work up an appetite on one of the pool tables or play a game of darts, while waiting for their lunch or dinner to be cooked to order. Late night and weekends offer even more options with Karaoke on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 p.m. midnight, live entertainment on Thursdays and Fridays from 8 p.m. midnight and acoustic music played on Saturday afternoons from 2 6 p.m. They have a full bar, with specials running all the time, that stays open until 2 a.m. The establishment also has an outside smoking deck, seven largescreen televisions, Keno and is a full-service Georgia lottery retailer. The great food and entertainment is the main reason Madison County residents should debate a food run to Lake Park, but a side perk would be seeing Madison resident Pam Gary, who along with her family, has made Rajun Cajun a real family affair. Gary took over management of the restaurant in 2013 and says she was able to do so by luck, her friendship with the previous manager/owner, Melanie Hiers and the grace of God. Some Madisonians may remember when Gary rst moved to Madison in 2006 with husband and ve of her six children in tow. Not long after living in Madison, Gary and her husband divorced, with him moving back to Tampa, where they had previously lived, leaving Gary with ve young children to care for and no familiar faces to help her. She says being in Madison ended up being a blessing because the support she received from the tight-knit community enabled her and her children to survive. Gary said she received help from several individuals but especially remembers an abundance of help from a Mormon church while living in Sirmins and was overwhelmed with their generosity of home grown produce, deer meat, help with fencing and nancial donations. All the help and love Gary was shown, she says, makes her extremely grateful to the people of Madison. Today, Gary manages the restaurant with the help of her anc James Gill, who is the kitchen manager; her two daughters, Sarah Tippette of Lee and Hilary Flynn of Valdosta, who co-manage with her and the other four children, still living with her, who help out by being prep cooks, dishwashers and bus staff.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.If everything goes according to plan, the Madison County Boys Choir will be doing a weekend of shows in conjunction with the RATT Pact Theater on the Friday and Saturday before Palm Sunday. Tim Dunn, of the RATT Pact Theater Group, met with Daniel Graham, Xavier Dobson and Desmond Roberson, of the Madison Boys Choir to talk about the possibility of a Boys Choir concert at 7 p.m. Friday, April 11, and two shows on Saturday, April 12, at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., all at the RATT Pact Theater building on Range Street. Graham said that he gured the show would last about an hour to an hour and a half, if the choir performs ve songs, with an intermission of a dance performance by the dance team that is part of the choir. The theater venue holds 50 seats, and the choir will be able to sell tickets to each show as a fundraiser, splitting the money with the RATT Pact for use of the theater. If all three shows are a sellout, they might even add a fourth show on Palm Sunday. Dunn described the theaters small stage dimensions and discussed how the choir might want the stage dressed and the lights set, along with logistics of getting on and off the stage and where the piano and drum set would go. He added that he hoped the RATT Pact appearances would bring the choir to the attention of other community groups beyond their core fan base, and perhaps lead to bigger and better venues in the future. Right now, he was just hoping to make something happen in Madison and build up steam for the rst show. I feel like well be doing a lot more of these shows in the future, he said.Story SubmittedRecycle, Recycle, Recycle is the simple message that students at Pinetta Elementary School are emphasizing to their classmates, parents, and community. With the help of Rachel Silver of the Southeast Rural Community Assistance Project, Inc., P.E.S was able to secure a USDA grant to provide recycling bins for each classroom and office. On Feb. 12 the school held its recycling program kickoff assembly. Ms. Silver instructed the students about items that may be recycled at the school and those items that cannot be recycled. Teachers selected two fourth grade students, Mattie Barnes and Mackenzie Singletary, as the schools recycling captains. These ladies are responsible for the collection of recyclable materials and promoting the P.E.S. recycling program. Third, fourth and fifth grade students had the opportunity to participate in a poster contest to encourage recycling. The winners were: 1stplaceEmily Minor, 2ndplaceWhitney Raines and 3rdplaceAlesha McCulley. Congratulations to the winners!

The MCCS Bronco Report Offers News And OpportunityStory SubmittedThe Bronco Report is a live news program, aired each morning at Madison County Central School. It is located in the TV studio, which is in the back of the media center. It takes seven students to work the show. Jobs necessary for the broadcast include: two announcers, five students to work the camera, an audio mixer, a switcher, a character generator and a teleprompter. Mrs. Heather Welch updates the script each morning and directs the show. This year, Mrs. Megan Dickey's first period students, made up of sixth through eighth graders, worked the show each morning. During the second semester, these students are training other sixth through eighth graders to use the equipment in order to give more students an opportunity to work the show. This five to seven minute broadcast includes: the Pledge of Allegiance, which is recited by different homeroom classes; the lunch menu and the morning announcements. The broadcast ends with the Bronco Classroom Pledge. By working on the Bronco Report, students get to have a hands-on experience with various types of technology, as well as practicing their communication skills, which offers them real-life opportunities.

Story SubmittedMadison County Central School (MCCS) Students using an online computer program from Josten' s create the MCCS yearbook. There are 22 seventh and eighth graders that have worked on the yearbook this year. Mr. Jeff Veilleux and Mrs. Heather Welch are the club sponsors. Yearbook students met after school for one or two days a week to work on each section of the yearbook, including the ad section, class portraits, clubs, sports and class activities. There are three deadlines that must be met in order for the yearbook to be printed on time. We just submitted the last section and yearbooks will be sent to our school in May. It costs about $10,000 to produce a full-color, 128 page, hard cover yearbook. Students help to cover this cost by starting the year selling yearbook ads to local businesses. These businesses are always so supportive and are greatly appreciated. Students also have a sales week at school and visit each class to sell yearbooks to students, faculty and staff. The MCCS yearbook staff does have a limited number of yearbooks available, and are $35 each. We also have yearbooks from previous years for sale.

Mosley Lee Barfield: Volunteering Prolonged My LifeŽBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Ilike to give people compliments while they're living, when they can hear em," said Deloris Jones at the County Commission meeting, where she had come to thank the commissioners for their help in supporting the Senior Center and when money for Elder Care services was tight. She also wanted to introduce to them one of the Center's hardest-working volunteers, Mosley Lee Barfield, and present her with an award for Volunteer of the Year on behalf of the Center. During the time of fiscal emergency, it was the volunteers who pulled together and raised over $1000 to keep Elder Care Services going, and one of the hardest working volunteers was Barfield. Barfield, who already had an armload of plaques and accolades for her hard work and volunteer efforts over the years, including Volunteer of the year for 2011 and 2012, took the podium to accept yet another award and explain what volunteering meant to her. She first came to the Senior Center in 1987, saw a need and started volunteering with arts and crafts, Meals on Wheels, and driving a van to Valdosta to help seniors run errands. She also serves in the Consolidated Christian Ministries food pantry. "I believe this program has prolonged my life," said Barfield. "When we retire, we need to give back to the community."

It’s Girl Scout cookie time! I absolutely love Girl Scout cookies. I love it when I see tables loaded down with the familiar bright boxes, set up in front of grocery or home-good stores, joyfully being sold by girls with brown or green sashes. I usually only buy one box at a time so I can buy from as many different girls as my wallet and waistline allow. The very rst box that I look for and take home is the green box of Thin Mints that holds not only my favorite, but that of the top 25 percent of cookie buyers as well, making it the Girl Scouts' top-selling cookie. A woman I previously worked with would buy a whole case of the mint cookies and store them in her freezer. I tried to do the same, one time. Her goal was to have the cookies all year. Unfortunately, I discovered I liked them frozen and my cookies did not last that long. If you want (need) Girl Scout cookies but can no longer nd them locally, no worries, you can now nd them online. You can go to the Girl Scout site and use their cookie nder. While you’re there, you can search the site to learn the history of the cookies and get answers to a slew of frequently asked questions that are not only informative, but interesting as well. One of the things you can check out is the variety of cookies now available. Some of them I have seen, and tasted, but some I have yet to see, at least on the tables I have patronized. One of the newer ones, Savannah Smiles, I did buy this past weekend. They remind me of a cookie that my parents used to buy when I was a child, Lemon Coolers. They are crunchy, sweet with confectioner’s sugar, tart with lemon, and a now close second to Thin Mints as far as my favorites. One of the things I was hoping to nd on my Girl Scout cookie quest, while online, was a recipe using the cookies. I have heard of recipes using the cookies, but had never searched for any, until now. The Thin Mint recipes for pie and trufes tempted me, and the recipes using Peanut Butter Patties sounded wonderful, but what I ended up printing from the website (but not yet making) was a recipe developed by a Girl Scout in Washington, who earned her baking badge and followed that accomplishment by entering a Girl Scout baking contest using the Savannah Smiles cookies. With spring right around the corner, the tarts sound decadent but refreshing. Looks like I’ll be heading back out to buy more cookies, and if I can’t nd them on the street, or on the Girl Scout site, I also discovered while online, I can buy them on eBay.Isaw an interview recently of reality television star Mike Roe of the popular show Dirty Jobs He was talking about the need for working class people with vocational education. That interview got me to thinking about the state of our education and the goals of young people entering the workforce. In the current economy, the unemployment rate among millennials entering the workforce is pretty bad. More than 20 million of them have moved back home to live with mom and dad. Is it because they are unprepared for work or have unrealistic expectations? I’m counseling a young couple that plan to marry this summer. The woman graduated a decade ago from Valdosta State with a degree in Communications and found that it wasn’t too useful. Now, she’s training in occupational therapy. Back to Mike Roe, he said that he’s working with a specialized vocational school in Jacksonville that needs to train 800 welders for current vacancies in local shipyards. They’re having problems recruiting applicants for this very viable career path. What are high school guidance counselors telling their students? Fifty years ago, high schoolers took courses in industrial arts and home economics to prepare themselves for useful occupations after graduation. What happened to education like that? My personal opinion is that we are sending far too many young people to college with an unclear (and often unrealistic) picture for what lies ahead. They’re incurring huge student loans in the process which, if you stop and think about it, is a form of economic slavery. An even greater travesty is when they incur this debt to obtain degrees that have dubious utility in today’s job market. Speaking of useful public school curriculum, what about education in subjects dealing with personal nance such as banking; investing; debt management; budgeting? Are we teaching young people what they need to know to be successful in their personal life? Many high school graduates don’t know what to do with their lives. I encourage them, whenever I get a chance, to enlist in the military, learn a skill, gain maturity, and put away money for education. The Obama Administration’s decision to shrink the military will make that choice more difcult, but we often lose sight that the military is the largest job-training program in our nation. I’m constantly looking across the news spectrum for new trends in economic activity. That’s where I would want to aim my career path if I were young. For example, there is a huge boom pending in the western Gulf Coast for liqueed natural gas (LNG). Apparently a better, more economical method to transport natural gas, particularly across oceans, is the LNG state. Imagine all the jobs (welders, electricians, construction, etc.) that will be required to allow this new industry to get off the ground. Location is also very important. Young people entering the job market need to look outside the comfort zone where they were raised to nd new employment opportunities. Not many people live in North Dakota, but it is experiencing huge economic growth because of the energy boom in the western part of the state. While I really believe in college, from my experience, it isn’t for everyone. We must look at an individual’s competence and interests, then steer them into education and elds of study that properly match. When I see a young person that likes to work with their hands, I think that’s great. I would steer them into a vocational eld that matches their skill and has a good prospect for a well-paying job. Let’s never fall into the trap of belittling a trade or craft that is desperately needed, like plumbing, welding, electrical, construction, transportation, etc. These are great careers that are very necessary in a modern society. When the toilet starts to leak, you aren’t going to call a poet or dance instructor, are you? Yes, I have multiple degrees, but I also learned at an early age how to work with my hands. Before I turned 19, my grandmother (Dad’s side) took me aside at a family gathering and made it a point to complement me on my ability to work hard with my back as well as my mind. I’ve never forgotten that conversation and the lesson she taught me. She was a professional educator (and very religious), but she was also the product of a farm family. She understood the value of hard work. How do I sum up this subject? Learn about life at an early age. Aim your education toward a viable job market. Adapt for future employment. Work hard. Set personal goals and develop a strategy to achieve them. The “American Dream” is still alive for those who truly seek it.www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, March 12, 2014 2A € Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS Letter To The Editor National SecurityJoe Boyles Guest ColumnistGirl Scout Cookies! Searching For AmbrosiaBlue Collar Rose KleinColumnistBlack History Should be Taught All Year LongWow. I was reading several documents the other day and came across some interesting little known black history facts that even some of our pupils who graduated summa cum laude may not know. Do you realize that most of us, including many in higher education could not properly answer many questions related to black history, even if you promise to give them a brand new shiny Kennedy Fifty Cents coin? Let’s see. Did you know that a major part of Amelia Island near Jacksonville was once owned by blacks? Yes, this business venture was led by a black man from Madison County, Florida named Abraham Lincoln Lewis. This fact is substantiated by Dr. Kevin McCarthy, who taught for 37 years at my alma mater, the University of Florida. He chronicles this accomplishment in his book entitled ‘African American sites in Florida.’ Dr. McCarthy goes further to note that with only $100, A. L. Lewis (1865-1947) was a principal founder of the Afro-American Industrial and Benet Association, which later became the AfroAmerican Life Insurance Company, formerly one of the largest businesses in Florida. He was the man behind the 200 acre American Beach in Nassau County. A beach developed specically to accommodate blacks during a time when it was illegal for us to enjoy ourselves at any other public beach in America. Ironically, it was named American Beach. Hey, young scholars, did anyone ever tell you that a black slave named York accompanied Lewis and Clark on their westward expeditions across America commencing in 1803? Well, according to Wikipedia, York was born in 1770 and is described as a large, strong man who was a guide and interpreter when dealing with the Native Americans. In addition, can you tell us about A.G. Gaston? Based on a book by Carol Jenkins and Elizabeth Hines entitled ‘Black Titan: A.G. Gaston and the Making of a Black American Millionaire’, he was a maverick and a far sighted philanthropist. The authors, when speaking of him say “the grandson of slaves, born into poverty in 1892 in the Deep South, died at age 103, more than a century later with a fortune worth well over $130 million and a business empire spanning communications, real estate, funeral homes, and insurance.” If given a major exam today, how many of our Associate Professors would be able to correctly tell us about the legacy of Henrietta Lacks? This black lady was a wife and mother of ve whose cells became immortal upon her death at age 31 of cervical cancer. You see, they have helped to save the lives of millions of people worldwide. Her cells known as HeLa became the rst to not die and reproduce a line that continues to this day. Hence, innumerable biomedical research experiments have been successful as a result of her unwittingly donating them to science. While this phenomenon has yielded billions of dollars in prot for many biomedical and pharmaceutical companies, her family is still yet to receive one dime. I bet many of our recent exceptional high school, and magna cum laude college graduates might just miss the answer to our next question. Who was Reginald Lewis? Based on a prole found at an ‘Info please’ website, he was a black man who graduated from Harvard Law School in 1968. He later opened TLC Group, a venture capital rm that in 1987 bought a considerable share of Beatrice International Foods for $985 million. His subsidiary had sales of $2.2 billion in 1996 and was ranked number 512 on Fortune magazine’s list of 1,000 largest companies. Moreover, his 1992 gift to Harvard Law School was the largest single donation the school had received at that time. Accordingly, for a bonus question worth 25 points, let’s see whether our salutatorians can answer this one. Who in the world is Junior Bridgeman? Relying upon ‘Thebiglead’ webpages, Mr. Bridgeman is a former National Basketball Association player (Milwaukee Bucks) who now owns 196 Wendy’s franchises and over 100 Chili’s restaurants. According to the St. Louis Business Journal, anyone interested in purchasing a Wendy’s franchise must have a minimum net worth of $5 million, including at least $2 million of liquid assets. It is noteworthy to add that Junior is a black male that was raised in the tough neighborhoods of East Chicago, Indiana. So, congratulations to each of you who were able to answer all of the aforementioned questions accurately. We will label you as gifted scholars in African American History. For the rest who did not fare as well, then don’t fret. Just simply write your local school boards and ask them to be sure that black history becomes a mandatory part of the curriculum calendar and is taught all year long. And remember, the gospel says in Luke 17:5: “ And the Apostles said to the Lord, Increase our Faith. ” Young people, go ahead and ask the Lord to increase your faith, and you too can accomplish your goals just as did the astonishing individuals mentioned earlier within this article.

Rodney Somerville was gardening at his home when the deadly snake bit him on the nger. After hitting the snake in the head with a shovel, the 54year-old decided to have at least one last beer. "I said to myself, if I'm going to cark it, I'm going to have a beer, so I got a Goldie out of the fridge and drank that; cause you know eastern browns are the second most venomous snake in the world," Somerville said." "If you panic, it makes it worse." He called the ambulance and was given the anti-venom, but suffered an allergic reaction to the medicine and is still in the hospital three weeks later, which Somerville calls a "double whammy."Teacher Shows Sexual Image Of Herself In ClassroomIn Little Rock, Ark., a middle school teacher accidentally incorporated a sexual picture of herself with her students' class work. The Forest Heights Middle School teacher made a mistake while trying to play something from her iCloud account and transferred the inappropriate picture to her middle school student's classroom iPads. The teacher sent a statement to parents, apologizing for the mistake. The school's technology team wiped all eight iPads clean and reset them.Man Trapped In Storm Drain Two Days After Chasing $20 BillIn Lawton, Okla., a man who chased a $20 bill into a storm drain ended up trapped underground for two days. The man was discovered by a group of teenagers walking home from school. Lawton Police Sgt., John Chelenza said, "That's the rst time in going on 28 years that we have found somebody down in a storm drain." Police ofcerin-training Alicia Redding said the man seemed very disoriented. "He did not remember what day it was. He wasn't sure how long he had been down there." Chelenza said, "He had a bump on his head, he may have hit his head against a wall down there because its obviously pretty dark unless he is next to a storm drain where light could get into," Chelenza said. The man was unable to locate his $20 bill.

By Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.The Rajun Cajun Bar & Grill in Lake Park, Ga., is a family sports bar, known for their wings, fried gator tail and homemade Cajun specialties, but for those needing a milder repast, you can also choose from fresh seafood dishes, handcut steaks, freshly shucked oysters or homemade burgers. While waiting for your food, there is no reason to be bored, as the restaurant offers plenty of entertainment. Rajun Cajun has a separate room where diners can work up an appetite on one of the pool tables or play a game of darts, while waiting for their lunch or dinner to be cooked to order. Late night and weekends offer even more options with Karaoke on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 p.m. midnight, live entertainment on Thursdays and Fridays from 8 p.m. midnight and acoustic music played on Saturday afternoons from 2 6 p.m. They have a full bar, with specials running all the time, that stays open until 2 a.m. The establishment also has an outside smoking deck, seven largescreen televisions, Keno and is a full-service Georgia lottery retailer. The great food and entertainment is the main reason Madison County residents should debate a food run to Lake Park, but a side perk would be seeing Madison resident Pam Gary, who along with her family, has made Rajun Cajun a real family affair. Gary took over management of the restaurant in 2013 and says she was able to do so by luck, her friendship with the previous manager/owner, Melanie Hiers and the grace of God. Some Madisonians may remember when Gary rst moved to Madison in 2006 with husband and ve of her six children in tow. Not long after living in Madison, Gary and her husband divorced, with him moving back to Tampa, where they had previously lived, leaving Gary with ve young children to care for and no familiar faces to help her. She says being in Madison ended up being a blessing because the support she received from the tight-knit community enabled her and her children to survive. Gary said she received help from several individuals but especially remembers an abundance of help from a Mormon church while living in Sirmins and was overwhelmed with their generosity of home grown produce, deer meat, help with fencing and nancial donations. All the help and love Gary was shown, she says, makes her extremely grateful to the people of Madison. Today, Gary manages the restaurant with the help of her ancŽ James Gill, who is the kitchen manager; her two daughters, Sarah Tippette of Lee and Hilary Flynn of Valdosta, who co-manage with her and the other four children, still living with her, who help out by being prep cooks, dishwashers and bus staff. Gary says she frequently sees people from Madison at the restaurant and hopes more will come to visit her, where she will be waiting to serve you with a smile and, as she's told, "the best chicken wings in southern Georgia." www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, March 12, 2014Madison County Carrier € 5AAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY Rajun Cajun Bar & Grill Tastefully Managed By Madison Family Revival At Reapers Of The Harvest Weekend Of March 14thBy Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.Reapers of the Harvest Church will be hosting a revival, beginning on March 14 and ending March 16.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.If everything goes according to plan, the Madison County Boys Choir will be doing a weekend of shows in conjunction with the RATT Pact Theater on the Friday and Saturday before Palm Sunday. Tim Dunn, of the RATT Pact Theater Group, met with Daniel Graham, Xavier Dobson and Desmond Roberson, of the Madison Boys Choir to talk about the possibility of a Boy’s Choir concert at 7 p.m. Friday, April 11, and two shows on Saturday, April 12, at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., all at the RATT Pact Theater building on Range Street. Graham said that he gured the show would last about an hour to an hour and a half, if the choir performs ve songs, with an intermission of a dance performance by the dance team that is part of the choir. The theater venue holds 50 seats, and the choir will be able to sell tickets to each show as a fundraiser, splitting the money with the RATT Pact for use of the theater. If all three shows are a sellout, they might even add a fourth show on Palm Sunday. Dunn described the theater’s small stage dimensions and discussed how the choir might want the stage dressed and the lights set, along with logistics of getting on and off the stage and where the piano and drum set would go. He added that he hoped the RATT Pact appearances would bring the choir to the attention of other community groups beyond their core fan base, and perhaps lead to bigger and better venues in the future. Right now, he was just hoping to make something happen in Madison and “build up steam for the rst show.” “I feel like we’ll be doing a lot more of these shows in the future,” he said.Story SubmittedRecycle, Recycle, Recycle” is the simple message that students at Pinetta Elementary School are emphasizing to their classmates, parents, and community.

The MCCS Bronco Report Offers News And OpportunityStory SubmittedThe Bronco Report is a live news program, aired each morning at Madison County Central School. It is located in the TV studio, which is in the back of the media center. It takes seven students to work the show. Jobs necessary for the broadcast include: two announcers, five students to work the camera, an audio mixer, a switcher, a character generator and a teleprompter. Mrs. Heather Welch updates the script each morning and directs the show. This year, Mrs. Megan Dickey's first period students, made up of sixth through eighth graders, worked the show each morning. During the second semester, these students are training other sixth through eighth graders to use the equipment in order to give more students an opportunity to work the show. This five to seven minute broadcast includes: the Pledge of Allegiance, which is recited by different homeroom classes; the lunch menu and the morning announcements. The broadcast ends with the Bronco Classroom Pledge. By working on the Bronco Report, students get to have a hands-on experience with various types of technology, as well as practicing their communication skills, which offers them real-life opportunities.

Story SubmittedMadison County Central School (MCCS) Students using an online computer program from Josten' s create the MCCS yearbook. There are 22 seventh and eighth graders that have worked on the yearbook this year. Mr. Jeff Veilleux and Mrs. Heather Welch are the club sponsors. Yearbook students met after school for one or two days a week to work on each section of the yearbook, including the ad section, class portraits, clubs, sports and class activities. There are three deadlines that must be met in order for the yearbook to be printed on time. We just submitted the last section and yearbooks will be sent to our school in May. It costs about $10,000 to produce a full-color, 128 page, hard cover yearbook. Students help to cover this cost by starting the year selling yearbook ads to local businesses. These businesses are always so supportive and are greatly appreciated. Students also have a sales week at school and visit each class to sell yearbooks to students, faculty and staff. The MCCS yearbook staff does have a limited number of yearbooks available, and are $35 each. We also have yearbooks from previous years for sale. If you'd like to purchase a yearbook, contact Heather Welch in the MCCS media center, by calling the school’s main number at (850) 9735192. 973-4141(Fax) 973-4121P.O.
