By Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc. Three men were arrested for Grand Theft of Property and Burglary to Structure, on Thursday, March 13 in Greenville. According to the Madison County Sheriffs Ofce deputies were dispatched to a residence on Short Street in Greenville at 11:26 p.m. The victim informed the deputies that as he/she returned home he/she observed three males exiting the home with a at screen television. The suspects ed when they saw the victim returning home. The victim recognized two of the three men and was able to give a description of all three. The deputies were familiar with two of the three suspects from previous incidents. Upon processing the residence, the deputies found that the suspects gained entry into the residence by kicking the door causing the deadbolt and doorknob to fail. The suspects are Cedrick Brown, 20 of Madison, Laterrius Davis, 19 of Greenville and Brice Hamilton, 19 of Greenville. All three are charged with Grand Theft of Property and Burglary to Structure. Davis was also charged with possession of marijuana. The television has not been recovered. Wed.

Town Clerk Kim Reams swore in Elesta Pritchett, Council Group 2, Alphonso Young, Council Group 5, and returning incumbent, Kovacherich Arnold, who ran unopposed for the Council Group 1 seat. With that formality taken care of, the council members settled down to the items of business on the agenda, namely, voting on a new mayor and vice mayor. Current Mayor Kovacherich Arnold called for nominations. At first, none were forthcoming, but then there was some disagreement as to whether or not council member Elesta Pritchett could self-nominate under Robert's Rules of Order, and whether or not things would remain unchanged for lack of nominations, meaning Arnold would continue as mayor, a point also disputed under Robert's Rules. Attorney Christine Thurman, attending via teleconference, sorted out the procedure questions (i.e., that a council member could self-nominate), but not before a motion was made and passed to name Arnold as mayor. A recall of the vote was allowable, which would grant the council a "do-over," but the motion to recall the vote failed 2/3. Arnold remained the mayor, per the original vote. The council voted Barbara Dansey, Council Group 3, the new vice mayor. After voting to name the mayor and vice mayor as the official signatories on the Town of Greenville bank accounts, the council adjourned.Greene Publishing, Inc.

By Fran HuntGreene Publishing, Inc.Florida Highway Patrol reported that within the 24-hour period of Sunday, March 16, crashes in both Madison and Jefferson counties were one-third higher than normal. Both counties were experiencing light to moderate rain during the afternoon and evening. Rainfall in the two neighboring counties are usually about the same. It was reported that in a 24-hour period, Jefferson County received 3.57 inches of rain. In Madison County, there were 18 crashes. Six of those crashes resulted in road blockage and there was only one incident which involved someone being injured. In Jefferson County, there were 20 crashes. Four of the crashes resulted in road blockages and only two involved anyone being injured. Now, in comparison, last year, exactly one year ago on Sunday, March 17, 2013, Jefferson County set the record for FHP crashes, which kept law enforcement hopping for several hours. FHP Lt. David Folsom, who is over Jefferson, Madison and Taylor counties, reported that within a span of six miles on I-10, and within a four-hour period, there were approximately 24 crashes worked by FHP troopers. "I have worked all over the state, and in my 20 years with FHP I had never heard of so many crashes at one time," said Lt. Folsom. The crashes had occurred between milemarkers 217 and 223 on I-10, between the hours of 5:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. It had been raining but not too heavily. Folsom said that the crashes were probably mainly due to people not slowing down on the wet pavement, hydroplaning and rubbernecking. There were no major injuries or damages to vehicles and there had been only minor roadblocks, with no major trafc delays then.Crashes One Third More Than Usual Greenville Mayor Arnold Cleared Of Conflict Of Interest ChargesBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.For the past year, from March of 2013 to the present, the Greenville Town Council has been under the cloud of an ethics investigation of Mayor Kovacherich Arnold and other council members at that time, with the exception of Barbara Dansey (new council members Elesta Pritchett and Alphonso Young came aboard months later. The complaint does not involve them in any way). A week ago, March 12, 2014, the Florida Commission on Ethics released its ndings of "no probable cause," and dismissed that portion of the complaint regarding the Mayor. The subject of that portion was a conict of interest, where Arnold was charged with "having a conicting employment relationship with a business entity doing business with the Town of Greenville" i.e., a Town Council member who also served as a Town employee. The situation, as outlined by Arnold, arose during the last half of January 2013 through the last of March to early April of that same year. Town Clerk Patricia Hinton and Deputy Town Clerk Marsha Bass had just quit suddenly, leaving no one to run City Hall. For that three month period, Greenville was in a state of emergency, with no one qualied to manage the Town's accounts and other business. The was no one in the public works department or any other department who could step in to do bookkeeping for the council and the Town, no one to accept utility payments and make deposits, do Central School JA Gems ChosenSee Page 7A See Cleared On Page 3AJessie Box

Judgment Day – it will happen, one day, for each and every one of us. The question each one of us needs to ask ourselves is, “What will be written in MY Book of Life, when it is opened, on Judgment Day?” A few years ago I read a special story called “The Room.” I then ran it in both my Madison County and Jefferson County newspapers. The response I heard was overwhelming. The impact that one story can make is amazing. I think of that story often, so I decided to re-run it again. For those of you who have never read it – read it. It is a good read. For those of you who read it a few years ago – it’s worth the read again. It says so much more than what I could possibly try to write myself, so I’ve decided to share it again.The Room... By: Joshua Harris In that place between wakefulness and dreams, I found myself in the room. There were no distinguishing features except for the one wall covered with small index card les. They were like the ones in libraries that list titles by author or subject in alphabetical order. But these les, which stretched from oor to ceiling and seemingly endless in either direction, had very different headings. As I drew near the wall of les, the rst to catch my attention was one that read “Girls I have liked.” I opened it and began ipping through the cards. I quickly shut it, shocked to realize that I recognized the names written on each one. And then without being told, I knew exactly where I was. This lifeless room with its small les was a crude catalog system for my life. Here were written the actions of my every moment, big and small, in a detail my memory couldn’t match. A sense of wonder and curiosity, coupled with horror, stirred within me as I began randomly opening les and exploring their content. Some brought joy and sweet memories; others a sense of shame and regret so intense that I would look over my shoulder to see if anyone was watching. A le named “Friends” was next to one marked “Friends I have betrayed.” The titles ranged from the mundane to the outright weird “Books I Have Read,” “Lies I have told,” “Comfort I have given,” “Jokes I have laughed at.” Some were almost hilarious in their exactness: “Things I’ve yelled at my brothers.” Others I couldn’t laugh at: “Things I Have Done in My Anger,” “Things I Have Muttered under My Breath at My Parents,” I never ceased to be surprised by the contents. Often there were many more cards than I expected. Sometimes fewer than I hoped. I was overwhelmed by the sheer volume of the life I had lived. Could it be possible that I had the time in my years to ll each of these thousands or even millions of cards? But each card conrmed this truth. Each was written in my own handwriting. Each signed with my signature. When I pulled out the le marked “TV Shows I have watched” I realized the les grew to contain their contents. The cards were packed tightly and yet after two or three yards, I hadn’t found the end of the le. I shut it, shamed, not so much by the quality of shows but more by the vast time I knew that le represented. When I came to a le marked “Lustful Thoughts,” I felt a chill run through my body. I pulled the le out only an inch, not willing to test its size anddrew out a card. I shuddered at its detailed content. I felt sick to think that such a moment had been recorded. An almost animal rage broke on me. One thought dominated my mind: No one must ever see these cards! No one must ever see this room! I have to destroy them!” In insane frenzy I yanked the le out. Its size didn’t matter now. I had to empty it and burn the cards. But as I took it at one end and began pounding it on the oor, I could not dislodge a single card. I became desperate and pulled out a card, only to nd it as strong as steel when I tried to tear it. Defeated and utterly helpless, I returned the le to its slot. Leaning my forehead against the wall, I let out a long, self-pitying sigh. And then I saw it. The title bore “People I Have Shared the Gospel with.” The handle was brighter than those around it, newer, almost unused. I pulled on its handle and a small box not more than three inches long fell into my hands. I could count the cards it contained on one hand. And then the tears came. I began to weep, sobs so deep that they hurt. They started in my stomach and shook through me. I fell on my knees and cried. I cried out of shame, from the overwhelming shame of it all. The rows of le shelves swirled in my tearlled eyes. No one must ever, ever, know of this room. I must lock it up and hide the key. But then as I pushed away the tears, I saw Him. No, please not Him. Not here. Oh, anyone but Jesus. I watched helplessly as He began to open the les and read the cards. I couldn’t bear to watch His response. And in the moments I could bring myself to look at His face, I saw a sorrow deeper than my own. He seemed to intuitively go to the worst boxes. Why did He have to read every one? Finally He turned and looked at me from across the room. He looked at me with pity in His eyes. But this was a pity that didn’t anger me. I dropped my head, covered my face with my hands and began to cry again. He walked over and put His arm around me. He could have said so many things. But He didn’t say a word. He just cried with me. Then He got up and walked back to the wall of les. Starting at one end of the room, He took out a le and, one by one, began to sign His name over mine on each card. “No!” I shouted rushing to Him. All I could nd to say was “No, no,” as I pulled the card from Him. His name shouldn’t be on these cards. But there it was, written in red so rich, so dark, and so alive. The name of Jesus covered mine. It was written with His blood. He gently tookthe card back. He smiled a sad smile and began to sign the cards. I don’t think I’ll ever understand how He did it so quickly, but the next instant it seemed I heard Him close the last le and walk back to my side. He placed His hand on my shoulder and said, “It is nished.” I stood up, and He led me out of the room. There was no lock on its door. There were still cards to be written.As we go through life, EVERYTHING we do is written in our book of life. We should always be aware of our actions, and if they are pleasing to God, for NOTHING goes unnoticed by Him. One of the most profound things I heard, one time was, “When you stand before God on Judgment Day He will not ask you how other people treated you – He will ask you how you treated others.” Until then….I’ll see you around the town!Iwas in Jacksonville this past weekend with a really good friend from my hometown. We were there for a seminar, and although we both gained a lot from it, we really enjoyed our free time together. We shared what had been happening in our lives, went to the beach, relaxed and soaked up our coveted down time and ate…and ate. If you are passionate about food, one of the things you really enjoy, is to be with someone else who is also passionate about food, especially when eating. Needless to say, Judith and I are both very passionate about food and are both of the mind that when somewhere new, you never eat the same food twice, and if you can help it, never the same place twice. And, lucky for me, she loves a good dessert after a good meal. We ate and compared and experimented until it was time to leave. I dropped her off at the airport and we hugged good bye, with light hearts and full bellies. My time with Judith made me think of a dish she rst served me in her home and also surprised me with another time when my home in Arkansas was in shambles as I was packing to move here. Judith and her husband, a former pastor, are life-long missionaries and on one of their trips to Jamaica, was given this recipe from a fellow missionary, who had received the recipe from a good friend in Tanzania. The recipe charmed me because of the way it was served. A beef curry is prepared and served over rice in bowls and placed in front of you. On the table are various condiments you can choose and add to your bowl, creating a nal dish, suited to your taste. It’s much like when you have a xyour-own pizza, where guests can create a pizza with individual ingredients they like, assuring everyone has a meal they love, and having fun in the process; this version is just a little dressier. Having good friends over to eat is really fun for me, and this dish adds even more to the party. It also helps alleviate some of the pressure of having to second guess what someone does or doesn’t like, as they can create their own plate. The original recipe calls for beef, but the next time I prepare it, I’m going to try it with chicken. The amount and type of condiments are totally up to you; add and delete, as you like. The most important thing when preparing this tasty dish is to serve with great friends. Jamaican Curry 2 tbsp. vegetable oil 1 medium onion, chopped 1 clove garlic, nely minced 2 lbs. sirloin steak, cubed 5 to 6 tbsp. curry powder 3 tbsp. our 1/8 tsp. ground red pepper 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper 2 tbsp. molasses (or brown sugar) 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce 1 (28 oz.) can of tomatoes (diced or whole) Cooked rice to serve In a Dutch oven combine oil, onion and garlic; cook until onion is translucent. Add steak and cook until browned. Stir in curry powder, our, red and black pepper; cook about 1 minute. Add molasses and Worcestershire; stir until well blended. Add tomatoes. Add water just until meat is covered. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer on very low heat until meat is tender. (Judith cooks her meat mixture in a crock-pot). Serve over cooked rice and serve with small bowls of condiments. Condiment Suggestions: Chopped banana, chopped green onions, chopped green peppers, shredded coconut, chopped or whole peanuts, grated cheese, pineapple, raisins, chopped tomatoes, chutney.Conservative Republicans are criticized for being counter-culture, failing to keep abreast of current trends. For example, they are accused of: failing to relate to minorities; waging a ‘war on women;’ being anti-gay; against popular issues like marijuana; etc. Their political opponents and the media (but wait, I repeat myself) use these wedge issues to paint conservatives as being out-oftouch or stuck-in-the-past. While there may be some truth to these claims, it seems to me that much of this is cheap political mischaracterization. When you demonize your political opponents, it is much easier to win elections. Conservatives are much more likely to use fact and reason before staking out a position on any given issue. Their opponents are more likely to use emotion as the basis for their views. For example, in this space, I recently argued against the upcoming referendum in our state over the issue of medical marijuana. I may very well be bucking the popular trend on this issue, but I still think it is wrong-headed. The more I have checked into this, the more I’m convinced that it is a bad idea that will weaken the fabric of our society. But I recognize that come this November’s election, I might be run-over by the popular vote. If not, then it seems the long-term trend is toward legalization. Another popular notion that has been on re the past few years is the issue of gay rights. Actually, conservatives have evolved quite a bit on this issue, along with the rest of our nation, but you wouldn’t know this by listening to the media. An important streak in the conservative movement is libertarianism. Libertarian philosophy suggests that if an individual wants to engage in behavior like homosexuality, then that is their business, not the government’s. However, conservatism suggests that the government shouldn’t sanction that behavior by changing traditional marriage laws. Nothing sticks in my craw more than the notion that conservatives are anti-women. Their political opponents and willing allies in the media have painted this charterer over three issues: birth control; abortion and the glass-ceiling. In fact, the conservative position on each of these issues is fact-based, but the emotion of the issue often trumps factual information, especially with young, single women. I’m very concerned about the millennial generation, the 18-34 crowd, for many reasons. They are not church-goers which concerns me. I do know they are very “wired” to social media technology. President Obama was elected twice because he appealed to the millennials much better than his opponents, but recently when he suggested that the young generation should give up their smart phones to better afford health insurance (which they rarely if ever use), he ‘stepped in it.’ The millennials would rather give up an arm than their social connectivity. Generally, conservatives are older (and more experienced) so it isn’t uncommon for technology to bypass them. I’m not nearly as wired as young people and I suppose that gap will only widen over time. I think that elderly people get pretty lost in their last few years on earth, wondering what became of the world that was so familiar. But I’m satised with my generation and don’t want to step back in time. I believe in acting (and wearing) my age. No plastic surgery or implants for me. I don’t do Facebook or tweet, but that might change if my new job requires it to improve communication. The idea that conservatives are not concerned about everyone including minorities is another mischaracterization. I do think that Condoleezza Rice is correct when she suggests that fellow conservatives do not engage minorities such as Hispanics and African-Americans, but I wouldn’t go any farther. Engaging means communication, not pandering. The best thing any of us can do to engage with anyone is to listen and hear, in all sincerity. Reminder: communication is a two-way street. How do I summarize this meandering discussion? I don’t want to summarily dismiss anyone. I think it is important to listen to nearly every viewpoint and see it from the other person’s perspective. I’m a great believer in facts. I want to understand an issue and let the facts dictate my position. While I think it is important to understand emotional response, I personally reject this approach as a way to form an opinion. I think there are interesting things to think about the current culture and others that are frankly beyond me. I hope that when my life on earth is near its end, I’m not too bewildered by the things I see happening. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, March 19, 2014 2A € Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS Judgement DayEmerald Greene Publisher National SecurityJoe Boyles Guest ColumnistGreat Friends And Good Food Searching For Ambrosia Culture Wars Emerald's Gem Box Rose KleinColumnist

Patrick Williams had his toddler in the back seat when he allegedly spoke to a prostitute on Ridgewood Avenue, and arranged to pay her for services. The woman turned out to be an undercover police ofcer and Williams was arrested on a solicitation charge. Williams denied the solicitation. "I never solicited in any way. She came over, offered everything. It's a big entrapment. Police sting," Williams said. "The reality is I thought it was some crazy crackhead. I felt bad for her, prayed for her and drove off."Caregiver Disguised As Patient Attempts To Steal From Bank AccountIn Whetstone, England, Linda Cramphorn, 47, disguised herself as an 81-yearold Alzheimer's patient in an attempt to steal from the patient's bank account. Cramphorn was working as a caregiver for the Alzheimer's patient and admitted stealing the elderly woman's checkbook and personal documents before disguising herself and visiting a branch of the Halifax bank. Cramphorn was able to withdraw $664 from the woman's account but made bank workers suspicious when she sought a $36,531 bank draft. The workers contacted police who arrested Cramphorn and Sanjay Patel, 43, who was waiting for Cramphorn outside. Both pleaded guilty to fraud by false representation and sentenced to 16 months in prison.Woman Uses Scissors To Sever Husband's PrivatesIn China, a 30year-old woman cut off her husband's genitals, after he asked her for a divorce. Han Zhang reportedly crushed sleeping pills and put them in her husband, Han Mou's, drink. After he fell asleep, Zhang used scissors to cut off a part of Mou's genitals and ushed it down the toilet before he woke. Zhang stated, "If he and I divorcedour children will have a stepmother, a terrible thing." She was released on bail and returned home to her children and husband Mou, who forgave her. "I still love my wife," he said. "She was 16 years old just like me, and gave me two sons." Zhang reportedly became jealous again, used a syringe to inject a box of milk with more crushed sleeping pills, then took scissors and cut off the remainder of her husband's genitals and threw them on the ground. Zhang then called for an ambulance and turned herself in to police.

Arnold added that Workforce of North Florida was trying to find someone for them quickly, but in the meantime, the town needed to keep City Hall open. It received approval from the Florida League of Cities for the emergency resolution allowing council members to work in Greenville Town Hall until another qualified person could be found and hired. Meanwhile, Arnold voted on several matters that came before the Town Council, on matters that would have affected his personal gain or loss. However, the Ethics Commission's report found no probable cause that Arnold had violated Section 112.3143(3)(a), stating that Greenville was indeed in a state of emergency requiring immediate votes on certain matters, and citing that Arnold had voted only after consulting the Town Attorney at that time, who had in turn consulted the attorney for the Florida League of Cities and received approval before Arnold voted. The report also agreed that there was no probable cause to believe that Arnold violated section 112.313(3) Florida Statutes, by doing business with the Town of Greenville, stepping in to help with management of City Hall and receiving compensation; or Section 112.313(7)(a) Florida Statutes, by having a conflicting employment relationship; or Section 112.313(10)(a) by simultaneously serving as a Town employee and a Town Council member. A further charge, that Arnold "used his position to interfere and /or attempt to interfere with the policies and procedures of regarding management of the Town's utility services," i.e., tampered with water bills for friends, covered under Section 112.313(6), was also dismissed for lack of probable cause. Arnold alluded to the other portions of the complaint, or other separate complaints, alleging that he and other council members had held meetings outside the Sunshine Law, or had stalked town employees, allegations he stated were not true either, but said that he was mainly glad that this part was over. "I'm glad all this is behind us," he said, adding that he was eager to have the Ethics Report's findings posted so everyone could see, and the council members could get back to the important stuff of managing Greenville's affairs. "I really wanted the town to know what happened...the town's been in an uproar for over a year. People have been seeing all the negative things about the council. Now they can see the positive."

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.There’s a story behind every song Danny Graves sings, true to the singer-songwriter-storyteller tradition of old. Graves, who has lived in Madison for the past ve years with his wife Marianne, grew up on the edge of Jacksonville, right where the urban landscape begins to fade out and give way to the wild marshes and wetlands of coastal Northeast Florida. As a child, he attended Pleasant Park Baptist Church near Fernandina Beach. It was there, he recalls, that he accepted Christ. Around that same time, maybe about 1970ish, his father gave him a guitar for Christmas. Soon he was playing in a little garage band with a group of four, and he has been making music ever since, whether on guitar, mandolin, drums or keyboard. Currently, he plays lead guitar for the Madison Church of God. At the 55 Plus Club, he performed several original compositions on the guitar and mandolin, beginning with the rst song he ever wrote, at age 16. The song came about when he made a road trip to the North Carolina mountains with a friend to visit an older brother stationed at an Army base. He tells the amusing story of how his brother loaned them some Army camping gear, smuggling it out the back gate, because the two boys hadn’t thought to bring any. They were terried of getting caught but they made it through the trip without incident. It was while camping out on that North Carolina mountainside, that Graves awoke one morning to a glorious sunrise that touched a musical chord in his soul. “Such a Beautiful Life” resulted, telling the story of walking in the beauty of the light of the Son. That was at age 16. Recently, he became a grandfather, and two weeks ago, he wrote “Grandfather,” a ballad dedicated to his little granddaughter, Katie, and to his own daughter, who is now a mother. How fast time ies, the lyrics sing, when kids grow up. Not so long ago, he held his own daughter in his arms, and now she holds a child of her own. Perhaps now, this second time around, time will go a little slower as he watches little Katie grow up, recalling memories of his own daughter. Yes, time races past when kids grow up, a theme that resonates with many, as shown by the nods of understanding in the audience. The 16 year-old boy, who once stood on a mountainside, lled with joy at the sight of a sunrise, now sings of the joy that a little granddaughter brings. “Answer To My Prayers” is dedicated to his wife, Marianne, a song of thanksgiving to God for bringing her into his life. He wrote it for their wedding, some 20 years ago. “Sounds Like Love” is a song that came to him when he realized that music was as much about sound as it was about painting pictures with words. Thinking of the sound of lapping waves on the shore of Galilee, the sounds of a carpenter’s hammer, the sound of another hammer pounding nails into a cross, he wrote about all the sounds that had come to sound like God’s love. Switching instruments, he brought out the mandolin, something that he had only recently learned to play. He had been thinking about learning to play the mandolin for several weeks, but he didn’t have one. Then, out of the blue, one of his brothers whom he rarely hears from, called and asked if he had ever considered learning to play the mandolin, asked for his address, and hung up. A few days later, a package arrived in the mail – inside was a beautiful brand-new mandolin. He played his next selection on the mandolin, a song he dedicated to his father, Arthur Graves, who was part Cherokee from Troy, Ala. Having realized that many of his relatives on his father’s side of the family had the dark hair and the high cheekbones like his father, he asked about it. His father told him the story of his Native American heritage and the song, “You Are Cherokee” came from that conversation, a song dedicated to his father, a song about pride in one’s heritage and the love of one’s family. “We are Cherokee...we are few, like the buffalo....” Closing his program, he tells the story of being employed as a sign painter in Gainesville, painting all those “Gator Country” signs for the University of Florida. One beautiful sunny morning, he was re-lettering all the signs in the football stadium in preparation for the Gator football season, when suddenly, the police showed up and made everybody leave. Not knowing what was going on, he picked up his paintbrushes and left. It was Sept. 11, 2001. Out of that, came “American Soil.” “American soil...American land...the place where I was born, thank God, I’m American.” All around the room, it was obvious that he had several fans among the crowd, people who had heard him sing before and knew the lyrics, silently mouthing the words along with him. “American soil...American land...thank God, I’m American.” www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, March 19, 2014Madison County Carrier € 5AAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY The Music Man: Danny Grave Sings For 55 Plus ClubGreene Publishing, Inc.

Roberts says she decided to become a teacher so she could help kids learn to read because reading is her passion. She also has a vision of every student in the country having the opportunity of learning to read and write in order for him or her to have a bright and educated future. Ms. Roberts says the part of teaching she looks forward to most is the morning reading block when students are fresh and ready for the day because she “loves literature and sharing her love of books with students.” She feels her three greatest strengths in the classroom are reading strategies, incorporating technology in the classroom and making learning fun for her students. Fun in the classroom is something learned from Ms. Heather Welch, the school’s media teacher and Ms. Roberts’ second grade teacher. She said she remembers when she was in second grade everything they did in class was fun, no matter the subject area. “I woke up wanting to go to school every single day, rain or shine.” She said she continues to look to Ms. Welch for inspiration and wants her students to enjoy coming to class and desires to instill a love for learning in each of them, just as Ms. Welch did for her. Outside the classroom, Ms. Roberts is married to husband, Clint, and they have two daughters, Madison, ve and Ava, 15 months, whom she enjoys playing with. Other favorite pastimes for MCCS’ Teacher of the Week are painting, and of course, reading.Photo SubmittedKatie Roberts passion is reading and she strives to instill that passion into students.

Above ground construction has begun with recent reports suggesting the mill will become operational in July of 2014. The mill will be able to cut assorted pine species with a minimum of a ve-inch top into 2x4s and other dimensional lumber for the construction industry as well as use leftover chips and biomass for energy production. The Suwannee County Economic Alliance is hoping additional companies such as pellet and plywood manufacturers may be lured to the mill site to utilize the mill byproducts. At full production, the mill will utilize 250 plus truckloads of wood daily and will have a maximum annual production capacity of 700 million board feet per year. Forest Utilization Specialist Jarek Nowak of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services said the mill is expected to initially produce 375 million board feet per year. Nowak ran some numbers from the U.S. Forest Service's Forest Inventory Analysis and determined that there is 138 million board feet of pine saw timber that is not currently being used by existing mills within a 100-mile radius of Live Oak. Timber prices which have recently seen a rebound thanks to the slowly recovering housing market are expected to see further improvements with increased mill demand for wood. Contact the Madison County Forester at (850) 973-5115 for current timber price trends. New Website Spotlights Farmers For Protecting The EnvironmentThe Florida Farm Bureau Federation (FFBF) will launch a newly designed website, thisfarmcares.org, to recognize farmers throughout Florida who practice environmental stewardship. The website will also educate the public on agriculture's role in protecting Florida's natural resources. The This Farm Careswebsite recognizes more than 600 farmers who have taken voluntary steps to protect the land and water quality by implementing Best Management Practices (BMPs) on their farms. A photo gallery along with a calendar of statewide County Alliance for Responsible Environmental Stewardship (CARES) recognition events will also be featured. Profiles and events will be updated weekly. The website will boast a modern, sleek, easy-to-navigate design. Other features include a News Blog, eligibility requirements for the CARES program, frequently asked questions and direct links toThis Farm Caressocial media pages on Facebook and Twitter. "We are extremely excited to launch the CARES website," said Scot Eubanks, CARES coordinator for FFBF. "Through this website we are able to give farmers and ranchers public recognition and bring awareness to their advanced farming practices nationwide." The CARES program was established by Florida Farm Bureau and the Suwannee River Partnership in 2001 to recognize superior natural resource conservation by agricultural producers. Since its inception more than 600 agriculturists statewide have received the CARES award. The program relies on the voluntary action by farmers and ranchers to implement state-of-theart natural resource management systems or Best Management Practices, on their properties. CARES award winners have received certification from theFlorida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services that their farming operations have successfully met state BMPs standards. The CARES program involves partnerships with more than 60 organizations, including The Mosaic Company, the world's leading producer of phosphate and potash crop nutrients. Florida Farm Bureau is the Sunshine State's largest general agricultural organization with more than 147,000 member-families representing Farm Bureaus in 60 counties. Membership provides a multitude of benefits and you don't have to be a farmer to be a member of Florida Farm Bureau. HEY!

By Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc. Three men were arrested for Grand Theft of Property and Burglary to Structure, on Thursday, March 13 in Greenville. According to the Madison County Sheriffs Ofce deputies were dispatched to a residence on Short Street in Greenville at 11:26 p.m. The victim informed the deputies that as he/she returned home he/she observed three males exiting the home with a at screen television. The suspects ed when they saw the victim returning home. The victim recognized two of the three men and was able to give a description of all three. The deputies were familiar with two of the three suspects from previous incidents. Upon processing the residence, the deputies found that the suspects gained entry into the residence by kicking the door causing the deadbolt and doorknob to fail. The suspects are Cedrick Brown, 20 of Madison, Laterrius Davis, 19 of Greenville and Brice Hamilton, 19 of Greenville. All three are charged with Grand Theft of Property and Burglary to Structure. Davis was also charged with possession of marijuana. The television has not been recovered. Wed.

Town Clerk Kim Reams swore in Elesta Pritchett, Council Group 2, Alphonso Young, Council Group 5, and returning incumbent, Kovacherich Arnold, who ran unopposed for the Council Group 1 seat. With that formality taken care of, the council members settled down to the items of business on the agenda, namely, voting on a new mayor and vice mayor. Current Mayor Kovacherich Arnold called for nominations. At first, none were forthcoming, but then there was some disagreement as to whether or not council member Elesta Pritchett could self-nominate under Roberts Rules of Order, and whether or not things would remain unchanged for lack of nominations, meaning Arnold would continue as mayor, a point also disputed under Roberts Rules. Attorney Christine Thurman, attending via teleconference, sorted out the procedure questions (i.e., that a council member could self-nominate), but not before a motion was made and passed to name Arnold as mayor. A recall of the vote was allowable, which would grant the council a do-over, but the motion to recall the vote failed 2/3. Arnold remained the mayor, per the original vote. The council voted Barbara Dansey, Council Group 3, the new vice mayor. After voting to name the mayor and vice mayor as the official signatories on the Town of Greenville bank accounts, the council adjourned.Greene Publishing, Inc.

By Fran HuntGreene Publishing, Inc.Florida Highway Patrol reported that within the 24-hour period of Sunday, March 16, crashes in both Madison and Jefferson counties were one-third higher than normal. Both counties were experiencing light to moderate rain during the afternoon and evening. Rainfall in the two neighboring counties are usually about the same. It was reported that in a 24-hour period, Jefferson County received 3.57 inches of rain. In Madison County, there were 18 crashes. Six of those crashes resulted in road blockage and there was only one incident which involved someone being injured. In Jefferson County, there were 20 crashes. Four of the crashes resulted in road blockages and only two involved anyone being injured. Now, in comparison, last year, exactly one year ago on Sunday, March 17, 2013, Jefferson County set the record for FHP crashes, which kept law enforcement hopping for several hours. FHP Lt. David Folsom, who is over Jefferson, Madison and Taylor counties, reported that within a span of six miles on I-10, and within a four-hour period, there were approximately 24 crashes worked by FHP troopers. I have worked all over the state, and in my 20 years with FHP I had never heard of so many crashes at one time, said Lt. Folsom. The crashes had occurred between milemarkers 217 and 223 on I-10, between the hours of 5:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. It had been raining but not too heavily. Folsom said that the crashes were probably mainly due to people not slowing down on the wet pavement, hydroplaning and rubbernecking. There were no major injuries or damages to vehicles and there had been only minor roadblocks, with no major trafc delays then.Crashes One Third More Than Usual Greenville Mayor Arnold Cleared Of Conflict Of Interest ChargesBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.For the past year, from March of 2013 to the present, the Greenville Town Council has been under the cloud of an ethics investigation of Mayor Kovacherich Arnold and other council members at that time, with the exception of Barbara Dansey (new council members Elesta Pritchett and Alphonso Young came aboard months later. The complaint does not involve them in any way). A week ago, March 12, 2014, the Florida Commission on Ethics released its ndings of no probable cause, and dismissed that portion of the complaint regarding the Mayor. The subject of that portion was a conict of interest, where Arnold was charged with having a conicting employment relationship with a business entity doing business with the Town of Greenville i.e., a Town Council member who also served as a Town employee. The situation, as outlined by Arnold, arose during the last half of January 2013 through the last of March to early April of that same year. Town Clerk Patricia Hinton and Deputy Town Clerk Marsha Bass had just quit suddenly, leaving no one to run City Hall. For that three month period, Greenville was in a state of emergency, with no one qualied to manage the Town's accounts and other business.

Judgment Day it will happen, one day, for each and every one of us. The question each one of us needs to ask ourselves is, What will be written in MY Book of Life, when it is opened, on Judgment Day? A few years ago I read a special story called The Room. I then ran it in both my Madison County and Jefferson County newspapers. The response I heard was overwhelming. The impact that one story can make is amazing. I think of that story often, so I decided to re-run it again. For those of you who have never read it read it. It is a good read. For those of you who read it a few years ago its worth the read again. It says so much more than what I could possibly try to write myself, so Ive decided to share it again.T h e R o o m . By: Joshua Harris In that place between wakefulness and dreams, I found myself in the room. There were no distinguishing features except for the one wall covered with small index card les. They were like the ones in libraries that list titles by author or subject in alphabetical order. But these les, which stretched from oor to ceiling and seemingly endless in either direction, had very different headings. As I drew near the wall of les, the rst to catch my attention was one that read Girls I have liked. I opened it and began ipping through the cards. I quickly shut it, shocked to realize that I recognized the names written on each one. And then without being told, I knew exactly where I was. This lifeless room with its small les was a crude catalog system for my life. Here were written the actions of my every moment, big and small, in a detail my memory couldnt match. A sense of wonder and curiosity, coupled with horror, stirred within me as I began randomly opening les and exploring their content. Some brought joy and sweet memories; others a sense of shame and regret so intense that I would look over my shoulder to see if anyone was watching. A le named Friends was next to one marked Friends I have betrayed. The titles ranged from the mundane to the outright weird Books I Have Read, Lies I have told, Comfort I have given, Jokes I have laughed at. Some were almost hilarious in their exactness: Things Ive yelled at my brothers. Others I couldnt laugh at: Things I Have Done in My Anger, Things I Have Muttered under My Breath at My Parents, I never ceased to be surprised by the contents. Often there were many more cards than I expected. Sometimes fewer than I hoped. I was overwhelmed by the sheer volume of the life I had lived. Could it be possible that I had the time in my years to ll each of these thousands or even millions of cards? But each card conrmed this truth. Each was written in my own handwriting. Each signed with my signature. When I pulled out the le marked TV Shows I have watched I realized the les grew to contain their contents. The cards were packed tightly and yet after two or three yards, I hadnt found the end of the le. I shut it, shamed, not so much by the quality of shows but more by the vast time I knew that le represented. When I came to a le marked Lustful Thoughts, I felt a chill run through my body. I pulled the le out only an inch, not willing to test its size and drew out a card. I shuddered at its detailed content. I felt sick to think that such a moment had been recorded. An almost animal rage broke on me. One thought dominated my mind: No one must ever see these cards! No one must ever see this room! I have to destroy them! In insane frenzy I yanked the le out. Its size didnt matter now. I had to empty it and burn the cards. But as I took it at one end and began pounding it on the oor, I could not dislodge a single card. I became desperate and pulled out a card, only to nd it as strong as steel when I tried to tear it. Defeated and utterly helpless, I returned the le to its slot. Leaning my forehead against the wall, I let out a long, self-pitying sigh. And then I saw it. The title bore People I Have Shared the Gospel with. The handle was brighter than those around it, newer, almost unused. I pulled on its handle and a small box not more than three inches long fell into my hands. I could count the cards it contained on one hand. And then the tears came. I began to weep, sobs so deep that they hurt. They started in my stomach and shook through me. I fell on my knees and cried. I cried out of shame, from the overwhelming shame of it all. The rows of le shelves swirled in my tearlled eyes. No one must ever, ever, know of this room. I must lock it up and hide the key. But then as I pushed away the tears, I saw Him. No, please not Him. Not here. Oh, anyone but Jesus. I watched helplessly as He began to open the les and read the cards. I couldnt bear to watch His response. And in the moments I could bring myself to look at His face, I saw a sorrow deeper than my own. He seemed to intuitively go to the worst boxes. Why did He have to read every one? Finally He turned and looked at me from across the room. He looked at me with pity in His eyes. But this was a pity that didnt anger me. I dropped my head, covered my face with my hands and began to cry again. He walked over and put His arm around me. He could have said so many things. But He didnt say a word. He just cried with me. Then He got up and walked back to the wall of les. Starting at one end of the room, He took out a le and, one by one, began to sign His name over mine on each card. No! I shouted rushing to Him. All I could nd to say was No, no, as I pulled the card from Him. His name shouldnt be on these cards. But there it was, written in red so rich, so dark, and so alive. The name of Jesus covered mine. It was written with His blood. He gently took the card back. He smiled a sad smile and began to sign the cards. I dont think Ill ever understand how He did it so quickly, but the next instant it seemed I heard Him close the last le and walk back to my side. He placed His hand on my shoulder and said, It is nished. I stood up, and He led me out of the room. There was no lock on its door. There were still cards to be written.As we go through life, EVERYTHING we do is written in our book of life. We should always be aware of our actions, and if they are pleasing to God, for NOTHING goes unnoticed by Him. One of the most profound things I heard, one time was, When you stand before God on Judgment Day He will not ask you how other people treated you He will ask you how you treated others. Until then.Ill see you around the town!Iwas in Jacksonville this past weekend with a really good friend from my hometown. We were there for a seminar, and although we both gained a lot from it, we really enjoyed our free time together. We shared what had been happening in our lives, went to the beach, relaxed and soaked up our coveted down time and ateand ate. If you are passionate about food, one of the things you really enjoy, is to be with someone else who is also passionate about food, especially when eating. Needless to say, Judith and I are both very passionate about food and are both of the mind that when somewhere new, you never eat the same food twice, and if you can help it, never the same place twice. And, lucky for me, she loves a good dessert after a good meal. We ate and compared and experimented until it was time to leave. I dropped her off at the airport and we hugged goodbye, with light hearts and full bellies. My time with Judith made me think of a dish she rst served me in her home and also surprised me with another time when my home in Arkansas was in shambles as I was packing to move here. Judith and her husband, a former pastor, are life-long missionaries and on one of their trips to Jamaica, was given this recipe from a fellow missionary, who had received the recipe from a good friend in Tanzania. The recipe charmed me because of the way it was served. A beef curry is prepared and served over rice in bowls and placed in front of you. On the table are various condiments you can choose and add to your bowl, creating a nal dish, suited to your taste. Its much like when you have a xyour-own pizza, where guests can create a pizza with individual ingredients they like, assuring everyone has a meal they love, and having fun in the process; this version is just a little dressier. Having good friends over to eat is really fun for me, and this dish adds even more to the party. It also helps alleviate some of the pressure of having to second guess what someone does or doesnt like, as they can create their own plate. The original recipe calls for beef, but the next time I prepare it, Im going to try it with chicken. The amount and type of condiments are totally up to you; add and delete, as you like. The most important thing when preparing this tasty dish is to serve with great friends. J a m a i c a n C u r r y 2 tbsp. vegetable oil 1 medium onion, chopped 1 clove garlic, nely minced 2 lbs. sirloin steak, cubed 5 to 6 tbsp. curry powder 3 tbsp. our 1/8 tsp. ground red pepper 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper 2 tbsp. molasses (or brown sugar) 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce 1 (28 oz.) can of tomatoes (diced or whole) Cooked rice to serve In a Dutch oven combine oil, onion and garlic; cook until onion is translucent. Add steak and cook until browned. Stir in curry powder, our, red and black pepper; cook about 1 minute. Add molasses and Worcestershire; stir until well blended. Add tomatoes. Add water just until meat is covered. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer on very low heat until meat is tender. (Judith cooks her meat mixture in a crock-pot). Serve over cooked rice and serve with small bowls of condiments. C o n d i m e n t S u g g e s t i o n s : Chopped banana, chopped green onions, chopped green peppers, shredded coconut, chopped or whole peanuts, grated cheese, pineapple, raisins, chopped tomatoes, chutney.Conservative Republicans are criticized for being counter-culture, failing to keep abreast of current trends. For example, they are accused of: failing to relate to minorities; waging a war on women; being anti-gay; against popular issues like marijuana; etc. Their political opponents and the media (but wait, I repeat myself) use these wedge issues to paint conservatives as being out-oftouch or stuck-in-the-past. While there may be some truth to these claims, it seems to me that much of this is cheap political mischaracterization. When you demonize your political opponents, it is much easier to win elections. Conservatives are much more likely to use fact and reason before staking out a position on any given issue. Their opponents are more likely to use emotion as the basis for their views. For example, in this space, I recently argued against the upcoming referendum in our state over the issue of medical marijuana. I may very well be bucking the popular trend on this issue, but I still think it is wrong-headed. The more I have checked into this, the more Im convinced that it is a bad idea that will weaken the fabric of our society. But I recognize that come this Novembers election, I might be run-over by the popular vote. If not, then it seems the long-term trend is toward legalization. Another popular notion that has been on re the past few years is the issue of gay rights. Actually, conservatives have evolved quite a bit on this issue, along with the rest of our nation, but you wouldnt know this by listening to the media. An important streak in the conservative movement is libertarianism. Libertarian philosophy suggests that if an individual wants to engage in behavior like homosexuality, then that is their business, not the governments. However, conservatism suggests that the government shouldnt sanction that behavior by changing traditional marriage laws. Nothing sticks in my craw more than the notion that conservatives are anti-women. Their political opponents and willing allies in the media have painted this charterer over three issues: birth control; abortion and the glass-ceiling. In fact, the conservative position on each of these issues is fact-based, but the emotion of the issue often trumps factual information, especially with young, single women. Im very concerned about the millennial generation, the 18-34 crowd, for many reasons. They are not church-goers which concerns me. I do know they are very wired to social media technology. President Obama was elected twice because he appealed to the millennials much better than his opponents, but recently when he suggested that the young generation should give up their smart phones to better afford health insurance (which they rarely if ever use), he stepped in it. The millennials would rather give up an arm than their social connectivity. Generally, conservatives are older (and more experienced) so it isnt uncommon for technology to bypass them. Im not nearly as wired as young people and I suppose that gap will only widen over time. I think that elderly people get pretty lost in their last few years on earth, wondering what became of the world that was so familiar. But Im satised with my generation and dont want to step back in time. I believe in acting (and wearing) my age. No plastic surgery or implants for me. I dont do Facebook or tweet, but that might change if my new job requires it to improve communication. The idea that conservatives are not concerned about everyone including minorities is another mischaracterization. I do think that Condoleezza Rice is correct when she suggests that fellow conservatives do not engage minorities such as Hispanics and African-Americans, but I wouldnt go any farther. Engaging means communication, not pandering. The best thing any of us can do to engage with anyone is to listen and hear, in all sincerity. Reminder: communication is a two-way street. How do I summarize this meandering discussion? I dont want to summarily dismiss anyone. I think it is important to listen to nearly every viewpoint and see it from the other persons perspective. Im a great believer in facts. I want to understand an issue and let the facts dictate my position. While I think it is important to understand emotional response, I personally reject this approach as a way to form an opinion. I think there are interesting things to think about the current culture and others that are frankly beyond me. I hope that when my life on earth is near its end, Im not too bewildered by the things I see happening. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, March 19, 2014 2A Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS Judgement DayEmerald Greene Publisher National SecurityJoe Boyles Guest ColumnistGreat Friends And Good Food Searching For Ambrosia Culture Wars Emerald's Gem Box Rose KleinColumnist

Patrick Williams had his toddler in the back seat when he allegedly spoke to a prostitute on Ridgewood Avenue, and arranged to pay her for services. The woman turned out to be an undercover police ofcer and Williams was arrested on a solicitation charge. Williams denied the solicitation. I never solicited in any way. She came over, offered everything. Its a big entrapment. Police sting, Williams said. The reality is I thought it was some crazy crackhead. I felt bad for her, prayed for her and drove off.C a r e g i v e r D i s g u i s e d A s P a t i e n t A t t e m p t s T o S t e a l F r o m B a n k A c c o u n t In Whetstone, England, Linda Cramphorn, 47, disguised herself as an 81-yearold Alzheimers patient in an attempt to steal from the patients bank account. Cramphorn was working as a caregiver for the Alzheimers patient and admitted stealing the elderly womans checkbook and personal documents before disguising herself and visiting a branch of the Halifax bank. Cramphorn was able to withdraw $664 from the womans account but made bank workers suspicious when she sought a $36,531 bank draft. The workers contacted police who arrested Cramphorn and Sanjay Patel, 43, who was waiting for Cramphorn outside. Both pleaded guilty to fraud by false representation and sentenced to 16 months in prison.W o m a n U s e s S c i s s o r s T o S e v e r H u s b a n d s P r i v a t e s In China, a 30year-old woman cut off her husbands genitals, after he asked her for a divorce. Han Zhang reportedly crushed sleeping pills and put them in her husband, Han Mous, drink. After he fell asleep, Zhang used scissors to cut off a part of Mous genitals and ushed it down the toilet before he woke. Zhang stated, If he and I divorcedour children will have a stepmother, a terrible thing. She was released on bail and returned home to her children and husband Mou, who forgave her. I still love my wife, he said. She was 16 years old just like me, and gave me two sons. Zhang reportedly became jealous again, used a syringe to inject a box of milk with more crushed sleeping pills, then took scissors and cut off the remainder of her husbands genitals and threw them on the ground. Zhang then called for an ambulance and turned herself in to police.

It received approval from the Florida League of Cities for the emergency resolution allowing council members to work in Greenville Town Hall until another qualified person could be found and hired. Meanwhile, Arnold voted on several matters that came before the Town Council, on matters that would have affected his personal gain or loss. However, the Ethics Commission's report found no probable cause that Arnold had violated Section 112.3143(3)(a), stating that Greenville was indeed in a state of emergency requiring immediate votes on certain matters, and citing that Arnold had voted only after consulting the Town Attorney at that time, who had in turn consulted the attorney for the Florida League of Cities and received approval before Arnold voted. The report also agreed that there was no probable cause to believe that Arnold violated section 112.313(3) Florida Statutes, by doing business with the Town of Greenville, stepping in to help with management of City Hall and receiving compensation; or Section 112.313(7)(a) Florida Statutes, by having a conflicting employment relationship; or Section 112.313(10)(a) by simultaneously serving as a Town employee and a Town Council member. A further charge, that Arnold used his position to interfere and /or attempt to interfere with the policies and procedures of regarding management of the Town's utility services, i.e., tampered with water bills for friends, covered under Section 112.313(6), was also dismissed for lack of probable cause. Arnold alluded to the other portions of the complaint, or other separate complaints, alleging that he and other council members had held meetings outside the Sunshine Law, or had stalked town employees, allegations he stated were not true either, but said that he was mainly glad that this part was over. I'm glad all this is behind us, he said, adding that he was eager to have the Ethics Report's findings posted so everyone could see, and the council members could get back to the important stuff of managing Greenville's affairs. I really wanted the town to know what happened...the town's been in an uproar for over a year. People have been seeing all the negative things about the council. Now they can see the positive.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Theres a story behind every song Danny Graves sings, true to the singer-songwriter-storyteller tradition of old. Graves, who has lived in Madison for the past ve years with his wife Marianne, grew up on the edge of Jacksonville, right where the urban landscape begins to fade out and give way to the wild marshes and wetlands of coastal Northeast Florida. As a child, he attended Pleasant Park Baptist Church near Fernandina Beach. It was there, he recalls, that he accepted Christ. Around that same time, maybe about 1970ish, his father gave him a guitar for Christmas. Soon he was playing in a little garage band with a group of four, and he has been making music ever since, whether on guitar, mandolin, drums or keyboard. Currently, he plays lead guitar for the Madison Church of God. At the 55 Plus Club, he performed several original compositions on the guitar and mandolin, beginning with the rst song he ever wrote, at age 16. The song came about when he made a road trip to the North Carolina mountains with a friend to visit an older brother stationed at an Army base. He tells the amusing story of how his brother loaned them some Army camping gear, smuggling it out the back gate, because the two boys hadnt thought to bring any. They were terried of getting caught but they made it through the trip without incident. It was while camping out on that North Carolina mountainside, that Graves awoke one morning to a glorious sunrise that touched a musical chord in his soul. Such a Beautiful Life resulted, telling the story of walking in the beauty of the light of the Son. That was at age 16. Recently, he became a grandfather, and two weeks ago, he wrote Grandfather, a ballad dedicated to his little granddaughter, Katie, and to his own daughter, who is now a mother. How fast time ies, the lyrics sing, when kids grow up. Not so long ago, he held his own daughter in his arms, and now she holds a child of her own. Perhaps now, this second time around, time will go a little slower as he watches little Katie grow up, recalling memories of his own daughter. Yes, time races past when kids grow up, a theme that resonates with many, as shown by the nods of understanding in the audience. The 16 year-old boy, who once stood on a mountainside, lled with joy at the sight of a sunrise, now sings of the joy that a little granddaughter brings. Answer To My Prayers is dedicated to his wife, Marianne, a song of thanksgiving to God for bringing her into his life. He wrote it for their wedding, some 20 years ago. Sounds Like Love is a song that came to him when he realized that music was as much about sound as it was about painting pictures with words. Thinking of the sound of lapping waves on the shore of Galilee, the sounds of a carpenters hammer, the sound of another hammer pounding nails into a cross, he wrote about all the sounds that had come to sound like Gods love. Switching instruments, he brought out the mandolin, something that he had only recently learned to play. He had been thinking about learning to play the mandolin for several weeks, but he didnt have one. Then, out of the blue, one of his brothers whom he rarely hears from, called and asked if he had ever considered learning to play the mandolin, asked for his address, and hung up. A few days later, a package arrived in the mail inside was a beautiful brand-new mandolin. He played his next selection on the mandolin, a song he dedicated to his father, Arthur Graves, who was part Cherokee from Troy, Ala. Having realized that many of his relatives on his fathers side of the family had the dark hair and the high cheekbones like his father, he asked about it. His father told him the story of his Native American heritage and the song, You Are Cherokee came from that conversation, a song dedicated to his father, a song about pride in ones heritage and the love of ones family. We are Cherokee...we are few, like the buffalo.... Closing his program, he tells the story of being employed as a sign painter in Gainesville, painting all those Gator Country signs for the University of Florida. One beautiful sunny morning, he was re-lettering all the signs in the football stadium in preparation for the Gator football season, when suddenly, the police showed up and made everybody leave. Not knowing what was going on, he picked up his paintbrushes and left. It was Sept. 11, 2001. Out of that, came American Soil. American soil...American land...the place where I was born, thank God, Im American. All around the room, it was obvious that he had several fans among the crowd, people who had heard him sing before and knew the lyrics, silently mouthing the words along with him. American soil...American land...thank God, Im American. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, March 19, 2014 Madison County Carrier 5AAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY The Music Man: Danny Grave Sings For 55 Plus ClubGreene Publishing, Inc.

Roberts says she decided to become a teacher so she could help kids learn to read because reading is her passion. She also has a vision of every student in the country having the opportunity of learning to read and write in order for him or her to have a bright and educated future. Ms. Roberts says the part of teaching she looks forward to most is the morning reading block when students are fresh and ready for the day because she loves literature and sharing her love of books with students. She feels her three greatest strengths in the classroom are reading strategies, incorporating technology in the classroom and making learning fun for her students. Fun in the classroom is something learned from Ms. Heather Welch, the schools media teacher and Ms. Roberts second grade teacher. She said she remembers when she was in second grade everything they did in class was fun, no matter the subject area. I woke up wanting to go to school every single day, rain or shine. She said she continues to look to Ms. Welch for inspiration and wants her students to enjoy coming to class and desires to instill a love for learning in each of them, just as Ms. Welch did for her. Outside the classroom, Ms. Roberts is married to husband, Clint, and they have two daughters, Madison, ve and Ava, 15 months, whom she enjoys playing with. Other favorite pastimes for MCCS Teacher of the Week are painting, and of course, reading.Photo SubmittedKatie Roberts passion is reading and she strives to instill that passion into students.

www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, March 19, 2014 10A Madison County CarrierFARM& OUTDOORS Austrian Lumber Company To Locate Near Madison CountyThe Klausner Group, an Austrian lumber company, is continuing with plans to build a $130 million sawmill located near Live Oak on U.S. 90 just north of Interstate 10. Above ground construction has begun with recent reports suggesting the mill will become operational in July of 2014. The mill will be able to cut assorted pine species with a minimum of a ve-inch top into 2x4s and other dimensional lumber for the construction industry as well as use leftover chips and biomass for energy production. The Suwannee County Economic Alliance is hoping additional companies such as pellet and plywood manufacturers may be lured to the mill site to utilize the mill byproducts. At full production, the mill will utilize 250 plus truckloads of wood daily and will have a maximum annual production capacity of 700 million board feet per year. Forest Utilization Specialist Jarek Nowak of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services said the mill is expected to initially produce 375 million board feet per year. Nowak ran some numbers from the U.S. Forest Services Forest Inventory Analysis and determined that there is 138 million board feet of pine saw timber that is not currently being used by existing mills within a 100-mile radius of Live Oak. Timber prices which have recently seen a rebound thanks to the slowly recovering housing market are expected to see further improvements with increased mill demand for wood. Contact the Madison County Forester at (850) 973-5115 for current timber price trends. New Website Spotlights Farmers For Protecting The EnvironmentThe Florida Farm Bureau Federation (FFBF) will launch a newly designed website, thisfarmcares.org, to recognize farmers throughout Florida who practice environmental stewardship. The website will also educate the public on agricultures role in protecting Floridas natural resources. The This Farm Careswebsite recognizes more than 600 farmers who have taken voluntary steps to protect the land and water quality by implementing Best Management Practices (BMPs) on their farms. A photo gallery along with a calendar of statewide County Alliance for Responsible Environmental Stewardship (CARES) recognition events will also be featured. Profiles and events will be updated weekly. The website will boast a modern, sleek, easy-to-navigate design. Other features include a News Blog, eligibility requirements for the CARES program, frequently asked questions and direct links toThis Farm Caressocial media pages on Facebook and Twitter. We are extremely excited to launch the CARES website, said Scot Eubanks, CARES coordinator for FFBF. Through this website we are able to give farmers and ranchers public recognition and bring awareness to their advanced farming practices nationwide. The CARES program was established by Florida Farm Bureau and the Suwannee River Partnership in 2001 to recognize superior natural resource conservation by agricultural producers. Since its inception more than 600 agriculturists statewide have received the CARES award. The program relies on the voluntary action by farmers and ranchers to implement state-of-theart natural resource management systems or Best Management Practices, on their properties. CARES award winners have received certification from theFlorida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services that their farming operations have successfully met state BMPs standards. The CARES program involves partnerships with more than 60 organizations, including The Mosaic Company, the worlds leading producer of phosphate and potash crop nutrients. Florida Farm Bureau is the Sunshine State's largest general agricultural organization with more than 147,000 member-families representing Farm Bureaus in 60 counties. Membership provides a multitude of benefits and you don't have to be a farmer to be a member of Florida Farm Bureau. HEY!
