PAGE 2

National Security Last week, I wrote about the situation with the Veterans Administration poorly serving veterans, and before the ink was dry, the story was knocked off the front page by the curious case of the prisoner swap for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl. Bergdahl had been a prisoner of the Taliban in Afghanistan for nearly five years when the Obama Administration unilaterally arranged his release in exchange for five Taliban detainees at Guantanamo Bay. Then the White House staged a Rose Garden ceremony to announce the deal where the president spoke along with Bergdahls parents. The narrative was that this was a cause of celebration and that an American hero was being returned to his homeland following long captivity. Shortly afterward, National Security Advisor Susan Rice claimed that Sergeant Bergdahl had been captured on the battlefield and served with honor and distinction. Almost immediately, the narrative began to unravel. Bergdahls fellow soldiers from 2009 began to speak out in the media and claim that then-Private Bergdahl had deserted his post and sought to voluntarily turn himself in to enemy fighters. They did not paint a pretty picture and said that their mission was diverted as they spent months searching for their fellow soldier. There was even the suggestion that some of his fellow soldiers might have died searching for their lost comrade. In other words, despite Susan Rices claim, Bergdahl was not captured on the battlefield and his service in Afghanistan was anything but honorable. In my many tours as a commander, I learned early on to get out of the office, visit where the troops worked, and listen carefully to what they were saying. They may not see the big picture but they will tell you what is going on and how things are at ground level. Based on that experience, I always listen to firsthand accounts from the workforce, whether they are soldiers, factory workers or salesmen. Thats why the first-hand accounts of Bergdahls fellow soldiers are so important to me. One of my essential leadership principles is stay close to the troops. Then there is the other side of the swap. The Taliban detainees who were exchanged for young Bowe were very senior leaders who were captured nearly 12 years ago. Defense and intelligence officials had rated each one as high risk to pose a national security threat if released. There are some reports that White House officials ignored the advice of military commanders in making this swap. Additionally, the president did not notify Congress of the deal before it was accomplished, violating a law recently passed which the president himself signed. There is some suspicion that Obama is fully committed to closing the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay before leaving office, even if it means emptying the prison of detainees who are committed enemies of the United States like these five characters. Since his release more than a week ago, Bowe Bergdahl has been in a military hospital in Germany undergoing tests to evaluate his physical and psychological health. Debriefing by the Army will follow. Captivity is certainly a stressful affair. The soldier has apparently refused to phone his parents which is very unusual. He has made no public statements and has not yet had an opportunity to tell his side of the story or explain his actions that led to capture and during his captivity. Interestingly, the Army never characterized Sergeant Bergdahl as a prisoner of war. Four decades ago in the spring of 1973, 573 American prisoners of war returned from North Vietnam following long captivity to their homeland and freedom. Most of them were fighter pilots shot down over enemy territory. Against long odds, they had conducted themselves with honor. They never lost faith. Their return was a cause for celebration as in Johnny comes marching home. This is not the case with Bowe Bergdahl. The president and his advisors miss stepped when they tried to equate this unusual case with previous prisoner swaps at end like Vietnam. To get a true perspective of the POW experience, you really should visit the National Prisoner of War Museum at nearby Andersonville in Georgia. The National Park Service does a wonderful job of documenting POW service during all of our nations wars. We need to avoid any rush to judgment. We need to wait and hear Bowe Bergdahls side of the story before reaching any conclusions. Bergdahl may be guilty of desertion or possibly worse and the Army may charge him with a courts martial offense. My guess is that they wont because of political pressure, but well just have to wait and see. Too many times in life we get caught up in our own world and we forget the importance of the thoughts and ideas of others. We are all guilty of this, from time to time. In the business world this holds true, also. Whatever our job may be, sometimes we forget to step back and really look at what others might see or think. Id like to take this time to thank our readers and patrons, for the telephone calls, letters and Letters To The Editor, that we receive. Whether the intention is positive, or negative, it is good to hear from the public, for this lets us (the newspaper) know what you like, and dont like. We try our best, as your local hometown newspapers, to serve the public in the best way that we can. We try to stay abreast of the local news and happenings so that we may pass that same information on to you. As hard as we try, sometimes, we just dont know of EVERYTHING that might be coming up in the community. I would like to encourage everyone to please call our office and let us know if an event is happening, that you would like (or think needs to be) covered. We will do our best to be there and cover it to the best of our ability. I know that we cant please everyone in our community. With each story that is printed, some will like it some will not. We dont make the news, we just report it has become my favorite quote; as it holds the same for all media. It is our job to let the citizens of Madison County know what is happening in Madison County. The good, the bad and the ugly are all a part of that scenario. Thank you for your patronage and please feel free to call our office at any time, (9734141). We truly appreciate your thoughts and ideas and welcome any suggestions that you might have. We especially look forward to learning of events happening in our county that we might not know about.

All submitted letters must be 600 words or less -POWYour Input Matters To UsDear Editor,Kids dont make a lot of choices during their school day. From the rst bell in the morning until they leave in the afternoon, they spend their days listening to adults tell them where to sit, what to study and what homework to complete. Theres one notable exception to all of this structure, though: meals and snacks. Whether theyre picking between entrees in the lunch line or choosing a drink from a vending machine, todays students have more choices for food and beverages than ever before. Unfortunately, not all of these choices are healthy onesand theyre having a real impact on our childrens health. In addition to whats sold in the main cafeteria line, many schools sell a la carte snacks, entrees and beverages. These extras tend to be lower in nutritional value and higher in calories, sugar, fat and sodium than foods served in school meal programs. Since many children consume up to 50 percent of their daily calories at school, and since nearly one in three American kids is overweight or obese, ensuring that school food choices are healthy choices is a major priority. Research has shown that eating better helps students perform better in school academically. And forming strong nutritional habits early will help lead to a lifetime of better eating habits. Fortunately, in June 2013 the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) released updated nutrition standards for all snack foods and beverages sold in schools. The standards will provide schools with the guidance to make every food and drink sold during the school day a healthy choice, and thats the kind of choice we should give our kids. The next step is creating state and local policies that will ensure these standards are implemented in order to make healthy snacks a reality in every school. We also need to make sure that our students who participate in afterschool activities have the same healthy choices after the nal bell. The fundraisers and celebrations that occur also need healthy alternatives. Choice is a good thing. But when it comes to our kids, those choices should be healthy ones. Elevating nutritional standards for snack and a la carte foods and beverages will eliminate the least healthy food options for kids and replace them with food choices that compete without sacricing nutrition. Thats the school food environment I want my kids to have. How about you?Sincerely, Patricia Love Member of the American Heart Association Advocacy SubcommitteeUSDA Nutrition Standards The Madison County Sheriffs Ofce will be facilitating its next Concealed Carry Weapons class on Saturday, June 14. The National Rie Association (N.R.A.) First Steps Pistol course is the foundation for the sheriffs ofce eight (8) hour concealed carry class. In addition, information will be provided to ensure that each student is aware of what they can expect to take place before, during and after violent confrontations and how they, as individuals, can best prepare for these dynamics. They will emphasize to their students how important it is to value life and to employ less lethal options when the circumstances permit, but they want their students to be condently prepared. The Florida standards for legally carrying a concealed rearm may not be sufcient to prepare for violent confrontations. The Sheriffs Departments goal is to fully prepare law abiding citizens for the complex dynamics of violent confrontations while helping to preserve each of their 2ndAmendment rights. This class far exceeds the requirements to apply for the State of Florida Concealed Carry Weapons Permit for residents and non-residents. The Florida Concealed Carry Weapons permit is honored in 36 states. These classes are taught by N.R.A. multi-discipline law enforcement rearms instructors who have military, S.W.A.T. and violent confrontation experience. The cost for this course is $65. The cost goes down for additional people in a group. A large portion of these course fees will support youth adventure camps sponsored by the sheriffs ofce as well as other free courses for the community. If you would like to register for this class, or if you have any questions, please contact Captain Mark W. Joost at (850) 5190947.Concealed Carry Weapons Class To Be Held Saturday June 14 Tavares Police Find Male Burglary Suspect In Woman's Swimsuit Mother Of Three Arrested For DUI Had Three Alcoholic Jello Shots In Her Pockets Tavares Police arrested a male burglary suspect dressed in a woman's swimsuit missing from a recently burglarized home.

Gives Away Wild Adventures Concert Tickets Mr. Bucher Goes To WashingtonBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.On the 72ndanniversary of the Battle of Midway, the battle that turned the tide against the Japanese in the Pacific, and two days before the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the day of the Allied invasion of Europe during WWII, incoming Rotary President Pete Bucher gave an impromptu address to his fellow Rotarians about his recent trip to Washington D.C., a place he had not seen since his daughter was 12. Some of the trip was a return to places that he had visited before, particularly the Lincoln Memorial, because of the 16thPresident's commitment to individual freedom, and the Vietnam Memorial, because Bucher himself had served two tours of duty there; and one of the things that sets The Wall apart for him, aside from his experience with that war, is the fact that it contains the names of all the soldiers who died there thousands and thousands and thousands of names. Arlington National Cemetery was also an impressive sight, with its sheer numbers of graves, lines and lines of white markers stretching away toward the horizon. He also wanted to see the new memorials that had been put up since his last visit so many years ago, and was pleased to see that a memorial for the army nurses had been added to the Vietnam Memorial, and that their service had finally been recognized. The Korean Memorial was another addition he had not seen before. Newest among the additional memorials, the World War II Memorial was a sight Bucher described as very impressive...it's a shame that more of our World War II veterans didn't get to see it...sometimes it just takes Congress a long time to act. It wasn't so much a sight-seeing trip as it was a journey of remembering, learning a lot about history that we sometimes forget. He was also pleased to see many young people and school children touring the capital and visiting the memorials, learning about things that had happened before they were born. The United States has its issues, he concluded. But you know what? We're a great country...we're a great people. We can agree to disagree, but we support the United States of America."

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.They call themselves Ten Feet To Africa, Crysti Handfield told the members of the Madison Kiwanis Club, because she and her husband and their three sons, Cooper, Reid and Grady, altogether have ten feet, which will soon be going to Africa. Sometimes, she says, they call themselves The Handfield Five, but that sounds more like a singing group. Crysti, the daughter of Jere and Darlenne Burnette, grew up in Madison, and still lives here. Her husband, Clint Handfield, originally from Moultrie, Ga., currently works for Nestle. Ten Feet To Africa has more of the connotation of working or performing a task, and that is what the Handfield family intends to do. They will be moving to Ethiopia to work with the Somali refugees, in Ethiopia's capital city, Addis Ababa, located on a mountain some 8000 feet above sea level. Somalia, a country in constant turmoil, lies in the easternmost part of Africa, directly below Saudi Arabia. Ethiopia borders it on the west. Somalia is known for overwhelmingly negative images: As a war zone, a brutal place of turmoil, constant fighting and conflict that has brought about the total collapse of its government. Most westerners know little of the country besides the movie Captain Phillips and other mostly negative images on the news channels. In fact, Somali pirates was a phrase familiar to many even before the movie was released. The reality is that most of the Somali people are not militants or pirates, but ordinary citizens, people with families who are caught in the crossfire. Many are fleeing the country with their families, opting for the relative safety of Ethiopia, but because their own country's government no longer exists in any way, shape or form, there is no administrative office nor immigration bureau to issue passports or any other sort of paperwork. The fleeing refugees simply cross the border into Ethiopia and end up in the capital city of Addis Ababa, where they must wait until the Ethiopian government can process them and grant them passports and exit visas. Since this process is extremely strict, and the refugees often have no paperwork at all, it can sometimes take months. Children may even be DNA-tested to assure that they are indeed the children of the adults bringing them across the border, and not children being smuggled by strangers. Some of the refugees may eventually join family members in other countries like Norway, but first they must prove to the satisfaction of the Ethiopian government that they do have a place to go and they must successfully navigate a maze of rules and regulations before they will be given their passports and other necessary, legitimate paperwork that will allow them to leave. Thus, a sizable population of Somali families wait in Addis Ababa, a city Handfield described as a bit like Jacksonville, with roughly the same number of modern buildings, but no traffic lights. Cattle and other livestock roam the streets and traffic regulations consist of just go. Some people might think we're crazy, pulling up and moving to Africa with three boys under the age of three, said Handfield. However, It's amazing whom God calls, she added. This was not a decision that was made in haste. They have been making preparations for months, raising the necessary relocation funds, and they are working through a group known as Pioneers in order to make the move. Before Pioneers will take them on, they must commit to a two-year stay and they must have raised at least 80 percent of what they will need before they can even buy the plane tickets. Far from taking their family into the heart of a war, they will going into a neighboring country, to a fairly modern city, a place where refugees fleeing from the conflict have gathered. Nor did the requirement of a two-year commitment prove an obstacle. The Handfields believe they will be there indefinitely, or at least as long as there is a need. Working through Pioneers, the Handfield family will be joining friends in Addis Ababa, where a team is already in place, running a school that teaches English to the Somali refugees and their children. English is the language of commerce and trade in many of the places the people will be going, and they will need a working knowledge of conversational English. While they wait to be processed, there is time for them to learn, and there is a need for teachers. The Handfield family firmly believes that God has called them to help fill that need. Already, they are making contact through the schools in Addis Ababa that have been set up to teach English, a task that for Ten Feet To Africa, is more like a labor of love. Love doesn't have color, and it doesn't have boundaries, said Handfield. And kids are the best at knowing that that. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, June 11, 2014 6A Madison County CarrierAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY Make 2014the year you change your life CLASSES IN MADISON STARTJUNE 30Bachelors Degree Programs Business Administration with specialization in Management Computer Information Systems Criminal Justice Elementary Education Health Care Management Human Services Psychology Full-time students may be eligible for the Florida Resident Access Grant (FRAG) Approved for VA Benets/GI Bill Classes now forming in Madison(850) 973-3356 madison@saintleo.edu What you need for where youre going Now offering The Doctorate of Business Administration (Online and On Campus) ou need for wher What y e y ou need for wher e going r ou ee egr re s D achelor B dministration A usiness B Classes ograms r r ee P dministration Classes dministration A usiness B with specialization in anagement M nformation Computer I ystems S ustice riminal J C ducation lementary E E anagement e M ealth Car H dministrationClasses S une 30J with specialization in nformation ducation anagement N The D ing Classes ttarS une 30 fer w of o N octorate of The D ervices uman S H chology sy P ull-time students may F be eligible for the esident ida R lor F G) rant (FRA G ervices ull-time students may be eligible for the ccess A esident The D usiness B nline and O (O octorate of The D dministration A usiness ampus) n C nline and O V ed for v o ppr ro A ill enets/GI B B w for Classes no adison in Mwww A VA ming w for (850) 973-3356 madison@saintleo.edu.saintleo.edu/mp www (850) 973-3356 madison@saintleo.edu.saintleo.edu/mp Ten Feet To Africa Greene Publishing, Inc.

www.greenepublishing.com Madison County Carrier 7A Wednesday, June 11, 2014 We are pleased to present to you this years Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from two wells. The wells draw from the Floridian Aquifer. Then the water is chlorinated for disinfection purposes and fluoridated for dental health purposes. This report shows our water quality results and what they mean. If you have any questions about this report or concerns about your water utility, please contact Town Hall, at ( 850) 9482251. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second Monday of each month at 6:00 pm at Town Hall. The Town of Greenville routinely monitors for contaminates in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1st to December 31st 2013. Data obtained before January 1, 2013 and presented in this report are from the most testing done in accordance with the laws, rules and regulations. In 2013, The Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There were two potential sources of contamination identified for this system with a moderate susceptibility level. The assessment results are available in the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp or can be obtained from the Town of Greenville. In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we have provided the following definitions: Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL): The highest level of a contaminant allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG): The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l): One part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. Maximum Residual Disinfection Level (MRDL): The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal (MRDLG): The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. Picocurie per liter (pCi/L): A measure of the radioactivity in water. Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminates in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminates are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-4264791). We at the Town of Greenville would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed. If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Greenville WTP is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. The sources of drinking water (both tap and water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: Microbial contaminates, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations and wildlife. Inorganic contaminates, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban storm water runoff, and industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming. Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban storm water runoff, and residential uses. Organic chemical contaminates, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban storm water runoff and septic systems. Radioactive contaminates, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the protection for public health. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-4264791. Please DO NOT FLUSH your unused/unwanted medications down toilets or sink drains.

Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, we sometimes need to make improvements that will benefit all of our customers. These improvements are sometimes reflected in rate structure adjustments.

Frederick Joseph says he didnt get to spend much time with his own father while growing up and consequently, it shaped him to be the father he is today with his own children. Joseph says he spends as much time with his four daughters as he can and loves being with them. Josephs four girls are: Kelly, who is 23-yearsold and has just graduated from North Florida Community College; Kimberly, who would have been 21-years-old this year, but was taken at the age of 10 due to a brain tumor; Kayla, who is 15-years-old and in the 10thgrade and Krystal, who is 12-years-old and in the 7thgrade. One of the hardest things Joseph says he did was to leave his daughters when he and wife Greta divorced and when speaking of his girls, Joseph becomes very emotional. Losing Kimberly was just as hard for him and he still insists on her name being written on every Fathers Day card he receives. If you wonder what it would be like as a Father to raise four girls and what the biggest struggle would be, thoughts of boyfriends or waiting in line for the bathroom might come to mind, but Josephs struggle was neither of those. He says the thing that worried him most was/is, Will I be a good enough Dad for them. Even though his girls are now at the age they are either focusing on their futures or wanting to hang out with their peers, Joseph tries to spend as much time with them as he can saying, They dont have as much time for an old man like me anymore, but the time we do spend together makes up for everything, and he nishes by saying, They are my heart. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, June 11, 2014 8A Madison County Carrier HAPPYFATHER'SDAY SERVING UP REAL FOOD FOR REAL PEOPLE Hwy 53 & I-10 (850) 973-3115Open 24 hrsOpen 24 hrsPlease Join Us For Fathers DayCelebrating Over 25 Years In Bus iness Serving The Truc kers Of America Celebrating Over 25 Years In Business Serving The Truckers Of America SERVING UP REAL FOOD FOR REAL PEOPLEComfort Food Zone @ I-10 & Exit 262On Site Repair Shop (850) 971-5100Grill (850) 971-4240 Treat Dad On His Special Day! www.morrells.com Just in time for Our Manufacturers will be here giving HUGE FACTORY DISCOUNTS on all of our furniture!Everything in our top quality Swiss Grill lineup until Fathers Day!

SCHOOL www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, June 11, 2014 10A Madison County Carrier Town of Lee Water System 2013 Water Quality ReportWe're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from two wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. The water is pumped from the well site, which is located west of town just off US 90. Both wells can produce 350 gallons of water per minute to the water treatment plant, which is located north of town. It then goes to a holding tank where it is aerated and chlorinated with gas chlorine. Lastly, water is pumped on demand to our two elevated storage tanks and into the distribution system. In 2012, the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system and a search of the data sources indicated no potential sources of contamination near our wells. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp. The TOWN OF LEE routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to federal and state laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1st to December 31st 2013. Data obtained before January 1, 2013, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations. We are pleased to report that our drinking water meets all federal and state re quirements. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Leonard Miller, Public Works Director or Daniel L. Plain, Town Manager at City Hall (850)971-5867. If you want to learn more, please attend any regularly sched uled meetings. They are held on the first Tuesday of every month at 7 pm. This report shows our water quality results and what they mean. As authorized and approved by the EPA, the state has reduced monitoring requirements for certain contaminants to less often than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from year to year Some of our data; inorganic contaminants, radiological contaminants and lead and copper contaminants, though representative, are more than one year old. All drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants.: The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions: Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow. Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations oftrihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR. Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. ND means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis. Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (g/l): one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l): one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.

Madison County Central School had quite a few positive changes this year, and among those changes was the introduction of a school Sports Banquet. The banquet was hosted by the MCCS Athletic Department and was enjoyed by the parents and denitely by the players themselves, as the night was dedicated to them and their hard work. The evening kicked off with Dr. Willie Miles acknowledging the hard work of coaches and student athletes for the year and discussed the benets of having sports programs at the school, and of course, how important an education was for the players. Following his opening speech, guests were treated to a dinner of spaghetti, served by Italian servers made up of parents and grandparents, who donned chefs hats and moustaches in order to look the part. After dinner, student athletes were given some real-life tips on playing pro-ball and how education played an important part of that dream. Madison County alumnus Jeremy Haynes who played professional ball for about six years, told the players that in order to beat the odds and play professional sports, education and sacrice was crucial. After Haynes speech, Mike Ragans, MCCS's Athletic Director, took the podium and before handing out the awards, told players that the teams present contained the best eighth graders MCCS has had in a long, long time. Awards rst went to all team members having the highest GPA and were followed by sports awards. The evening ended with Dr. Miles closing remarks, which contained a video of all the bloopers that occurred during the taping of the teams individual recordings done for the evening. The closing blooper was of Dr. Miles, who upon seeing the blooper, ran from the room and out the double doors, signaling a fun end to the evening. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, June 11, 2014 12A Madison County CarrierSPORTS MCCS Holds Sports Banquet Greene Publishing, Inc.

The caller was identied as Carlton Wyche but would not inform communications what the emergency was. Upon arrival the deputy found that there was no emergency or problems requiring Law Enforcement to respond. Wyche was highly intoxicated and repeatedly called 911 for no valid reason. The deputy placed Wyche under arrest without incident. Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) showed that Wyche had called 911 the day before requesting a deputy. Upon arrival that deputy found Wyche lying in his yard again highly intoxicated. When asked what his emergency was, Wyche requested the deputy to take him and his dog for a ride. The deputy refused and left. Records show that Wyche has been arrested three prior times for misusing 911. Wyche has been charged with misuse of 911 and disorderly intoxication.Madison Resident Misuses 911Carlton Wyche By Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc. AMadison resident was charged with criminal use of identification and grand theft after using a mans drivers license to cash checks. According to the Madison Police Department report, a man came to the Madison Police Department concerning $400 that had been taken out of his account that he did not withdraw. He advised Patrolman Travis Johnson that he spoke with the bank manager at Bank of America on Thursday, May 15 and was informed a check was cashed in his name and the person used his drivers license as identification. He also informed Ptl. Johnson he lost his wallet two months prior. The man provided a copy of the check and it appeared to be a starter check from Wells Fargo as there was no information on the top left corner. After the $400 check was cashed, the Wells Fargo account holder placed a stop payment on the account. When Bank of America discovered the check that was cashed was invalid, they took the money out of the victims account, making him a victim of grand theft. Ptl. Johnson made contact with the Bank of America teller who cashed the check on Wednesday, May 28, and gave Johnson a description of a white Ford SUV the suspect was driving. The teller never saw the drivers face because he was in the lane furthest from the window. The teller informed Ptl. Johnson the suspect had come once before to cash the $400 check, but was not cashed due to the account not being active. The suspect returned with the victims drivers license and she cashed the $400 check. The suspect returned a third time and tried to cash another check for $1,460 but the teller became suspicious and refused. The City of Madison Police Department received a complaint from Bank of America on Friday, May 30, concerning a man trying to cash a check for $170 in the victims name, and due to the previous investigation, observed the driver was not the man the check was made out to. Sgt. Investigator James Roebuck went to the bank and made contact with the driver of the white Ford SUV and identified him as Joshua Jerrel Boynton. Sgt. Investigator Roebuck called into Communications and discovered Boynton's drivers license was suspended. Boynton was detained and transported to the Madison Police Department where he admitted to using the victims drivers license to withdraw money. Boynton was charged with criminal use of identification and grand theft. Man Uses Drivers License To Steal MoneyJoshua Boynton

Story SubmittedAgriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that eligible farmers and ranchers can sign up for U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) disaster assistance programs restored by passage of the 2014 Farm Bill. "We implemented these programs in record time and kept our commitment to begin sign-up April 15th," said Agriculture Secretary Vilsack. "To ensure enrollment goes as smoothly as possible, dedicated staff in over 2,000 Farm Service Agency offices across the country are doing everything necessary to help producers who have suffered through twoand-a-half difficult years with no assistance because these programs were awaiting Congressional action." Depending on the size and type of farm or ranch operation, eligible producers can enroll in one of four programs administered by the Farm Service Agency. The Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) and the Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) will provide payments to eligible producers for livestock deaths and grazing losses that have occurred since the expiration of the livestock disaster assistance programs in 2011, and will include calendar years 2012, 2013 and 2014. The Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees and Farm-Raised Fish Program (ELAP) provides emergency assistance to eligible producers of livestock, honeybees and farm-raised fish who have suffered losses because of disease, severe weather, blizzards and wildfires. Enrollment also begins for the Tree Assistance Program (TAP), which provides financial assistance to qualifying orchardists and nursery tree growers to replant or rehabilitate trees, bushes and vines damaged by natural disasters. Producers signing up for these programs are encouraged to contact their local FSA office for information on the types of records needed and to schedule an appointment. Taking these steps in advance will help producers ensure their application moves through the process as quickly as possible. Supporting documents may include livestock birth records, purchase and transportation receipts, photos and ownership records showing the number and type of livestock lost, documents listing the gallons of water transported to livestock during drought and more. Crop records may include purchase receipts for eligible trees, bushes, or vines, seed and fertilizer purchases planting and production records, and documentation of labor and equipment used to plant or remove eligible trees, bushes or vines. Producers have three to nine months to apply depending on the program and year of the loss. Details are available from any local FSA office. For the Livestock Forage Disaster Program, producers have until January 30, 2015 to sign up. For more information, producers may review the 2014 Farm Bill Fact Sheet, and the LIP, LFP, ELAP and TAP fact sheets online, or visit any local FSA office or USDA Service Center. The Madison/Taylor FSA office phone number is (850) 973-2205. The Jefferson/Leon/Wakulla FSA office phone number is (850) 997-2072.USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer. To file a complaint of discrimination, write to USDA, Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights, 1400 Independence Avenue, S.W., Stop 9410, Washington, DC 20250-9410, or call toll-free at (866) 632-9992 (English) or (800) 877-8339 (TDD) or (866) 377-8642 (English Federal-relay) or (800) 845-6136 (Spanish Federal-relay). www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, June 11, 2014 16A Madison County CarrierFARM& OUTDOORS BAILEY MONUMENT CO 740252 Sign Up For USDA Disaster Assistance Programs Restored By Farm Bill Gov. Scott And FWC Announce Saltwater And Freshwater License-Free Fishing DaysToday, Governor Scott and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced Floridians and visitors will be able to fish without a freshwater recreational fishing license on June 14 and 15. Governor Scott said, Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World, and fishing is an economic engine for our state, providing jobs from Pensacola to the Keys. These designated license-free fishing days are a great opportunity for Floridians to celebrate summer with their families and loved ones, enjoy the freedom of the great outdoors, cast a line and get hooked on fishing. We hope visitors and residents alike will be able to join in the excitement of Floridas freshwater fishing this year by participating in one of our license-free fishing days, said FWC Chairman Richard Corbett. This is an excellent opportunity to share the fun and togetherness of a fishing trip with the entire family or to introduce someone to a lifelong hobby of fishing. The Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundationswww.TakeMeFishing.o rgwebsite is a place to learn about events sponsored by businesses and communities, as well as locating fishing sites, identifying recreational species and finding fishing tips. Other license-free fishing days are the first Saturday in September (Sept. 6, 2014) and the first Saturday after Thanksgiving (Nov. 29, 2014) that have been designated license-free saltwater fishing days, and the first Saturday and Sunday in April (April 4-5, 2015) have been designated a licensefree freshwater fishing weekend.

Charles Spurgeon was one of the great preachers of the Gospel in the 19thcentury. His church in London touched that city, plus, in a measure, the entirety of England. He came from a family that was quite well-to-do; therefore, he was well educated as a young man. During that time, he became very concerned about his soul. He joined several churches, but to no avail. The hunger, the thirst, the longing were not satisfied. In other words, the emptiness and the void were not filled. As the months went by, he became more and more concerned, more and more perturbed, which he attempted to alleviate in various ways, but with no success. One particular night, greatly agitated of soul, he was walking the streets of London. It began to rain, and he sought shelter. He saw a light ahead, and thinking it was some type of public place, he hurried there thinking to get out of the rain. To his surprise, it was a small mission, a small church. He walked inside out of the rain, and there were only a few people present. There was a man behind the pulpit preaching, but after a few moments, it was very obvious that he was, at the same time, very uneducated, which grated the nerves of Spurgeon. The bad grammar and the halting English did not endear itself to the educated young man. The man's subject that night as he was preaching was "Look to Him!" Of course, his theme was Christ, and his petition was that people should come to Christ, and if they did, the thirst of their soul would be satisfied. "Look to Him!" Those words seized the soul of Spurgeon. Holy Spirit conviction set in. In a few moments, he forgot the bad grammar and the halting English. The uneducated accent ceased to trouble him, with the words, "Look to Him," looming large in his heart. That night, Charles Haddon Spurgeon found Christ, and in that little mission where he said "Yes" to Jesus, the thirst of his soul was completely satisfied, even as it has been satisfied in the hearts and lives of untold millions. In a moment's time, every question was answered! The void was filled! He was "born again." The "water of life" had been offered to him, offered freely, and he had taken it. Let the reader understand that this man had joined several churches before now, but to no avail, showing that the church cannot satisfy the longing of the human heart, and neither can anything else. In fact, if the church doesn't preach Jesus and Him Crucified, and do so as the constant theme of its existence, then the church is of no consequence. It is Jesus, and Jesus alone, who can give the "water of life." And how does He do this grand and glorious thing? CHRIST CRUCIFIED Paul said: "But we preach Christ crucified." (1 Cor. 1:23) Why did the great apostle use this term in this fashion? He did it because the Holy Spirit directed him accordingly. Someone asked me once, "Is salvation afforded by who Jesus is or what Jesus has done?," signifying the Cross. Perhaps it's a moot question, because it is only Christ who could have done this thing, and we speak of affording salvation, because man certainly could not do such for himself; however, the greater emphasis must always lay on the fact of "what" He did, referring to the Cross. Jesus Christ is God. As God, He had no beginning, which means that He always was, and in fact, always is. As God, He is unformed, unmade, uncreated, has always been, and always will be. But the simple fact of Him being God, as wonderful and glorious and necessary as that is, did not save anyone. If that alone could save, then He did not need to leave the Throne of Glory, and take upon Himself the frailty of humanity. But to the effect the salvation of mankind, the Cross was an absolute necessity. Due to the fact that God cannot die, God would have to become man. So let the reader always remember the following: Jesus as God, by that mere fact alone, did not save anyone. Jesus, the Miracle Worker, did not save anyone. Jesus the Healer did not save anyone. It was Jesus the Saviour who redeemed lost humanity, and He did so "by the Cross, having slain the enmity thereby." (Eph. 2:16). In that way and that way alone could man be reconciled to God. He had to go to the Cross, there shed His life's blood, which atoned for all sin, past, present, and future, at least for all who will believe, which made it possible for man to be saved. That's why Paul said, "We preach Christ crucified." If the church doesn't "preach the Cross" (1 Cor. 1:21), then the church is not preaching the Gospel, which means that no "water of life" is offered. Sadly, most churches, and I exaggerate not, are offering everything in the world except "the water of life." I say that because they aren't preaching Christ and Him crucified, so that means that no matter what else they preach, no lives will be changed, but if we preach the Cross, glorious and wonderful things happen. Lives are changed! Bondages of darkness are broken! The sick are healed! But only as we preach the Cross! 2B Madison County Carrier Wednesday, June 11, 2014 Path of Faith The The Pulpit PulpitBy Rev.

We are reminded in God's Holy Word that love never fails and the love of friends and family and the community are being shown as everyone rallies around Denise Ellison to raise money for medical treatment. This Saturday evening, June 14, Midway Baptist Church will host a gospel music fundraiser at the church located at 338 SE Midway Church Road. The concert is being held to help raise money for Denise Ellison for much-needed medical treatment. If anyone is unable to go to the fundraising concert, they can still make a deposit in a special account that has been set up for Denise at Madison County Community Bank. Simply go in the bank, or stop by the drive-through teller, and tell them you wish for the money to go into the Denise Phillips Ellison Benefit Fund. All proceeds will go towards Denise and her needed treatments. The group Chapel Road will headline the concert. Chapel Road was formed by Brian Norris and Kristen Kronatser while they were singing together in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Later, they were joined by Brian's cousin, Jacqueline Ratliff, to form the trio that performs today. They have a polished Southern gospel sound that is a favorite of audiences wherever they sing. Midway Baptist Church is located off Highway 53 South, south of Interstate 10, exit 258, or off CR 255 South, south of Interstate 10, exit 262.

Croft Ministries/ Joyce Croft will present a FREE bean supper and gospel sing on Friday, June 13. In years past, people enjoyed attending the three or four-day outdoor sings at the Spirit of the Suwannee Park in Live Oak but no one was scheduled for this year. The free bean supper on Wednesday evenings to kick off the event was always a favorite. The suppers and Wednesday evening concerts were sponsored by Croft Ministries through Joyce Croft and her late husband, Colbert Croft. The Crofts composed such beautiful gospel sings as (I Can't Even Walk) Without You Holding My Hand and I Believe He Died for Me. Joyce Croft decided to continue the tradition of the free bean supper and gospel sing and this year to bring it to Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Campground. The bean supper will be held beginning at 5 p.m. at the Gathering at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park and Campground and the concert will begin at 7 p.m. inside the Yogi Bear Jellystone Park Opry Hall. Performers will include the Sammy Glass Family from Tennessee; New Tradition from Nashville, Georgia; Ken Williams from Adel, Georgia; Joyce Croft from Jasper; and Amber Lee Abbott from Madison. Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park is located just south of Interstate 10, Exit 258, at 1039 SW Old St. Augustine Road. Everyone is welcome. Photo submittedJoyce Croft, center, will continue her tradition of having the free bean supper this year, moving it to Madison. She is shown with Candice and Chris from the Sammy Glass Family.

Faith Baptist Church Pastor Bryan Phillips is bringing a little bit of nostalgia to the church as he plans to have Christian-themed drive-in movies shown at the church. The first movie will be Facing the Giants and because the weather has a better than average chance of being balmy and humid, the church decided to host the first movie indoors. The date for the first movie will be this Friday, June 13, beginning at 7 p.m. Popcorn will be served and bottled water will also be available. As the weather turns cooler, Pastor Phillips said that there will be grilled burgers and hotdogs and chili available outdoors. Faith Baptist Church is located at 1155 East US 90 in Madison. Everyone is welcome. Make plans to bring your family or some friends or members or youth from your church. VBS Set At Pine Grove Missionary Baptist Church By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc. Students will train to become Agency D3 special agents during Vacation Bible School at the Pine Grove Missionary Baptist Church VBS set for Sunday, July 20, through Friday, July 25. The theme for the VBS is Agency D3: Discover. Decide. Defend. Students will collect and log evidence about Jesus. Using their best high-tech operative skills, they will examine eyewitness reports, physical proof and Biblical accounts to uncover and defend the truth about who Jesus really is. During the VBS, they will Discover the truth of the gospel; Decide to believe it; and Defend the decision. The students will be members of D3, which is an investigative agency organized to discover if Jesus is really who He claims to be and to examine if the Bible is true. This VBS is unusual because it has an apologetics theme, because people not only need to know the Bible is true and that Jesus is God's one and only Son, but they need to know how to defend what they believe when someone asks them why they believe it. The fun will begin at 5:30 p.m. with dinner served and will last until 8:45 p.m. each evening. Pine Grove Missionary Baptist is located at 4084 NE Rocky Ford Road, north of Madison.

National Security Last week, I wrote about the situation with the Veterans Administration poorly serving veterans, and before the ink was dry, the story was knocked off the front page by the curious case of the prisoner swap for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl. Bergdahl had been a prisoner of the Taliban in Afghanistan for nearly five years when the Obama Administration unilaterally arranged his release in exchange for five Taliban detainees at Guantanamo Bay. Then the White House staged a Rose Garden ceremony to announce the deal where the president spoke along with Bergdahl’s parents. The narrative was that this was a cause of celebration and that an American hero was being returned to his homeland following long captivity. Shortly afterward, National Security Advisor Susan Rice claimed that Sergeant Bergdahl had been “captured on the battlefield” and served with “honor and distinction.” Almost immediately, the narrative began to unravel. Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers from 2009 began to speak out in the media and claim that then-Private Bergdahl had deserted his post and sought to voluntarily turn himself in to enemy fighters. They did not paint a pretty picture and said that their mission was diverted as they spent months searching for their fellow soldier. There was even the suggestion that some of his fellow soldiers might have died searching for their lost comrade. In other words, despite Susan Rice’s claim, Bergdahl was not captured on the battlefield and his service in Afghanistan was anything but honorable. In my many tours as a commander, I learned early on to get out of the office, visit where the troops worked, and listen carefully to what they were saying. They may not see the ‘big picture’ but they will tell you what is going on and how things are at ground level. Based on that experience, I always listen to firsthand accounts from the workforce, whether they are soldiers, factory workers or salesmen. That’s why the first-hand accounts of Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers are so important to me. One of my essential leadership principles is “stay close to the troops.” Then there is the other side of the swap. The Taliban detainees who were exchanged for young Bowe were very senior leaders who were captured nearly 12 years ago. Defense and intelligence officials had rated each one as “high risk” to pose a national security threat if released. There are some reports that White House officials ignored the advice of military commanders in making this swap. Additionally, the president did not notify Congress of the deal before it was accomplished, violating a law recently passed which the president himself signed. There is some suspicion that Obama is fully committed to closing the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay before leaving office, even if it means emptying the prison of detainees who are committed enemies of the United States like these five characters. Since his release more than a week ago, Bowe Bergdahl has been in a military hospital in Germany undergoing tests to evaluate his physical and psychological health. Debriefing by the Army will follow. Captivity is certainly a stressful affair. The soldier has apparently refused to phone his parents which is very unusual. He has made no public statements and has not yet had an opportunity to tell his side of the story or explain his actions that led to capture and during his captivity. Interestingly, the Army never characterized Sergeant Bergdahl as a prisoner of war. Four decades ago in the spring of 1973, 573 American prisoners of war returned from North Vietnam following long captivity to their homeland and freedom. Most of them were fighter pilots shot down over enemy territory. Against long odds, they had conducted themselves with honor. They never lost faith. Their return was a cause for celebration as in “Johnny comes marching home.” This is not the case with Bowe Bergdahl. The president and his advisors miss stepped when they tried to equate this unusual case with previous prisoner swaps at end like Vietnam. To get a true perspective of the POW experience, you really should visit the National Prisoner of War Museum at nearby Andersonville in Georgia. The National Park Service does a wonderful job of documenting POW service during all of our nation’s wars. We need to avoid any rush to judgment. We need to wait and hear Bowe Bergdahl’s side of the story before reaching any conclusions. Bergdahl may be guilty of desertion or possibly worse and the Army may charge him with a courts martial offense. My guess is that they won’t because of political pressure, but we’ll just have to wait and see. Too many times in life we get caught up in our “own world” and we forget the importance of the thoughts and ideas of others. We are all guilty of this, from time to time. In the “business world” this holds true, also. Whatever our job may be, sometimes we forget to step back and really look at what others might see or think. I’d like to take this time to thank our readers and patrons, for the telephone calls, letters and Letters To The Editor, that we receive. Whether the intention is positive, or negative, it is good to hear from “the public,” for this lets us (the newspaper) know what you like, and don’t like. We try our best, as your local hometown newspapers, to serve the public in the best way that we can. We try to stay abreast of the local news and happenings so that we may pass that same information on to you. As hard as we try, sometimes, we just don’t know of EVERYTHING that might be coming up in the community. I would like to encourage everyone to please call our office and let us know if an event is happening, that you would like (or think needs to be) covered. We will do our best to be there and cover it to the best of our ability. I know that we can’t please everyone in our community. With each story that is printed, some will like it – some will not. “We don’t make the news, we just report it” has become my favorite quote; as it holds the same for all media. It is our job to let the citizens of Madison County know what is happening in Madison County. The good, the bad and the ugly are all a part of that scenario.

All submitted letters must be 600 words or less -POWYour Input Matters To UsDear Editor,Kids don’t make a lot of choices during their school day. From the rst bell in the morning until they leave in the afternoon, they spend their days listening to adults tell them where to sit, what to study and what homework to complete. There’s one notable exception to all of this structure, though: meals and snacks. Whether they’re picking between entrees in the lunch line or choosing a drink from a vending machine, today’s students have more choices for food and beverages than ever before. Unfortunately, not all of these choices are healthy ones—and they’re having a real impact on our children’s health. In addition to what’s sold in the main cafeteria line, many schools sell a la carte snacks, entrees and beverages. These “extras” tend to be lower in nutritional value and higher in calories, sugar, fat and sodium than foods served in school meal programs. Since many children consume up to 50 percent of their daily calories at school, and since nearly one in three American kids is overweight or obese, ensuring that school food choices are healthy choices is a major priority. Research has shown that eating better helps students perform better in school academically. And forming strong nutritional habits early will help lead to a lifetime of better eating habits. Fortunately, in June 2013 the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) released updated nutrition standards for all snack foods and beverages sold in schools. The standards will provide schools with the guidance to make every food and drink sold during the school day a healthy choice, and that’s the kind of choice we should give our kids. The next step is creating state and local policies that will ensure these standards are implemented in order to make healthy snacks a reality in every school. We also need to make sure that our students who participate in afterschool activities have the same healthy choices after the nal bell. The fundraisers and celebrations that occur also need healthy alternatives. Choice is a good thing. But when it comes to our kids, those choices should be healthy ones. Elevating nutritional standards for snack and a la carte foods and beverages will eliminate the least healthy food options for kids and replace them with food choices that compete without sacricing nutrition. That’s the school food environment I want my kids to have. How about you?Sincerely, Patricia Love Member of the American Heart Association Advocacy SubcommitteeUSDA Nutrition Standards The Madison County Sheriff’s Ofce will be facilitating its next Concealed Carry Weapons class on Saturday, June 14. The National Rie Association (N.R.A.) First Steps Pistol course is the foundation for the sheriff’s ofce eight (8) hour concealed carry class. In addition, information will be provided to ensure that each student is aware of what they can expect to take place before, during and after violent confrontations and how they, as individuals, can best prepare for these dynamics. They will emphasize to their students how important it is to value life and to employ less lethal options when the circumstances permit, but they want their students to be condently prepared. The Florida standards for legally carrying a concealed rearm may not be sufcient to prepare for violent confrontations. The Sheriff’s Department’s goal is to fully prepare law abiding citizens for the complex dynamics of violent confrontations while helping to preserve each of their 2ndAmendment rights. This class far exceeds the requirements to apply for the State of Florida Concealed Carry Weapons Permit for residents and non-residents. The Florida Concealed Carry Weapons permit is honored in 36 states. These classes are taught by N.R.A. multi-discipline law enforcement rearms instructors who have military, S.W.A.T. and violent confrontation experience. The cost for this course is $65. The cost goes down for additional people in a group. A large portion of these course fees will support youth adventure camps sponsored by the sheriff’s ofce as well as other free courses for the community. If you would like to register for this class, or if you have any questions, please contact Captain Mark W. Joost at (850) 5190947.Concealed Carry Weapons Class To Be Held Saturday June 14 Tavares Police Find Male Burglary Suspect In Woman's Swimsuit Mother Of Three Arrested For DUI Had Three Alcoholic Jello Shots In Her Pockets Tavares Police arrested a male burglary suspect dressed in a woman's swimsuit missing from a recently burglarized home.

Gives Away Wild Adventures Concert Tickets Mr. Bucher Goes To WashingtonBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.On the 72ndanniversary of the Battle of Midway, the battle that turned the tide against the Japanese in the Pacific, and two days before the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the day of the Allied invasion of Europe during WWII, incoming Rotary President Pete Bucher gave an impromptu address to his fellow Rotarians about his recent trip to Washington D.C., a place he had not seen since his daughter was 12. Some of the trip was a return to places that he had visited before, particularly the Lincoln Memorial, because of the 16thPresident's commitment to individual freedom, and the Vietnam Memorial, because Bucher himself had served two tours of duty there; and one of the things that sets “The Wall” apart for him, aside from his experience with that war, is the fact that it contains the names of all the soldiers who died there – thousands and thousands and thousands of names. Arlington National Cemetery was also an impressive sight, with its sheer numbers of graves, lines and lines of white markers stretching away toward the horizon. He also wanted to see the new memorials that had been put up since his last visit so many years ago, and was pleased to see that a memorial for the army nurses had been added to the Vietnam Memorial, and that their service had finally been recognized. The Korean Memorial was another addition he had not seen before. Newest among the additional memorials, the World War II Memorial was a sight Bucher described as “very impressive...it's a shame that more of our World War II veterans didn't get to see it...sometimes it just takes Congress a long time to act.” It wasn't so much a sight-seeing trip as it was a journey of remembering, “learning a lot about history that we sometimes forget.” He was also pleased to see many young people and school children touring the capital and visiting the memorials, learning about things that had happened before they were born. “The United States has its issues,” he concluded. “But you know what? We're a great country...we're a great people. We can agree to disagree, but we support the United States of America." Greene Publishing Inc.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.They call themselves “Ten Feet To Africa,” Crysti Handfield told the members of the Madison Kiwanis Club, because she and her husband and their three sons, Cooper, Reid and Grady, altogether have ten feet, which will soon be going to Africa. Sometimes, she says, they call themselves “The Handfield Five,” but that sounds more like a singing group. Crysti, the daughter of Jere and Darlenne Burnette, grew up in Madison, and still lives here. Her husband, Clint Handfield, originally from Moultrie, Ga., currently works for Nestle. “Ten Feet To Africa” has more of the connotation of working or performing a task, and that is what the Handfield family intends to do. They will be moving to Ethiopia to work with the Somali refugees, in Ethiopia's capital city, Addis Ababa, located on a mountain some 8000 feet above sea level. Somalia, a country in constant turmoil, lies in the easternmost part of Africa, directly below Saudi Arabia. Ethiopia borders it on the west. Somalia is known for overwhelmingly negative images: As a war zone, a brutal place of turmoil, constant fighting and conflict that has brought about the total collapse of its government. Most westerners know little of the country besides the movie “Captain Phillips” and other mostly negative images on the news channels. In fact, “Somali pirates” was a phrase familiar to many even before the movie was released. The reality is that most of the Somali people are not militants or pirates, but ordinary citizens, people with families who are caught in the crossfire. Many are fleeing the country with their families, opting for the relative safety of Ethiopia, but because their own country's government no longer exists in any way, shape or form, there is no administrative office nor immigration bureau to issue passports or any other sort of paperwork. The fleeing refugees simply cross the border into Ethiopia and end up in the capital city of Addis Ababa, where they must wait until the Ethiopian government can process them and grant them passports and exit visas. Since this process is extremely strict, and the refugees often have no paperwork at all, it can sometimes take months. Children may even be DNA-tested to assure that they are indeed the children of the adults bringing them across the border, and not children being smuggled by strangers. Some of the refugees may eventually join family members in other countries like Norway, but first they must prove to the satisfaction of the Ethiopian government that they do have a place to go and they must successfully navigate a maze of rules and regulations before they will be given their passports and other necessary, legitimate paperwork that will allow them to leave. Thus, a sizable population of Somali families wait in Addis Ababa, a city Handfield described as a bit like Jacksonville, with roughly the same number of modern buildings, but no traffic lights. Cattle and other livestock roam the streets and traffic regulations consist of “just go.” “Some people might think we're crazy, pulling up and moving to Africa with three boys under the age of three,” said Handfield. However, “It's amazing whom God calls,” she added. This was not a decision that was made in haste. They have been making preparations for months, raising the necessary relocation funds, and they are working through a group known as “Pioneers” in order to make the move. Before Pioneers will take them on, they must commit to a two-year stay and they must have raised at least 80 percent of what they will need before they can even buy the plane tickets. Far from taking their family into the heart of a war, they will going into a neighboring country, to a fairly modern city, a place where refugees fleeing from the conflict have gathered. Nor did the requirement of a two-year commitment prove an obstacle. The Handfields believe they will be there indefinitely, or at least as long as there is a need. Working through Pioneers, the Handfield family will be joining friends in Addis Ababa, where a team is already in place, running a school that teaches English to the Somali refugees and their children. English is the language of commerce and trade in many of the places the people will be going, and they will need a working knowledge of conversational English. While they wait to be processed, there is time for them to learn, and there is a need for teachers. The Handfield family firmly believes that God has called them to help fill that need. Already, they are making contact through the schools in Addis Ababa that have been set up to teach English, a task that for Ten Feet To Africa, is more like a labor of love. “Love doesn't have color, and it doesn't have boundaries,” said Handfield. “And kids are the best at knowing that that.” www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, June 11, 2014 6A € Madison County CarrierAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY Make 2014the year you change your life CLASSES IN MADISON STARTJUNE 30Bachelors Degree Programs € Business Administration with specialization in Management € Computer Information Systems € Criminal Justice € Elementary Education € Health Care Management € Human Services € Psychology Full-time students may be eligible for the Florida Resident Access Grant (FRAG) Approved for VA Bene“ts/GI Bill Classes now forming in Madison(850) 973-3356 madison@saintleo.edu What you need for where youre going Now offering The Doctorate of Business Administration (Online and On Campus) ou need for wher What y e y ou need for wher e going r  ou ee egr re s D  achelor B dministration A usiness € B Classes ograms r r ee P dministration Classes dministration A usiness € B with specialization in anagement M nformation € Computer I ystems S ustice riminal J € C ducation lementary E € E anagement e M ealth Car € H dministrationClasses S une 30 J with specialization in nformation ducation anagement N The D ing Classes t tar S une 30 fer w of o N octorate of The D ervices uman S € H chology sy € P ull-time students may F be eligible for the esident ida R lor F G) rant (FRA G ervices ull-time students may be eligible for the ccess A esident The D usiness B nline and O (O octorate of The D dministration A usiness ampus) n C nline and O V ed for v o ppr ro A ill ene“ts/GI B B w for Classes no adison in Mwww A VA ming w for (850) 973-3356 madison@saintleo.edu.saintleo.edu/mp www (850) 973-3356 madison@saintleo.edu.saintleo.edu/mp Ten Feet To AfricaŽ Greene Publishing, Inc.

www.greenepublishing.com Madison County Carrier € 7A Wednesday, June 11, 2014 We are pleased to present to you this years Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from two wells. The wells draw from the Floridian Aquifer. Then the water is chlorinated for disinfection purposes and fluoridated for dental health purposes. This report shows our water quality results and what they mean. If you have any questions about this report or concerns about your water utility, please contact Town Hall, at ( 850) 9482251. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second Monday of each month at 6:00 pm at Town Hall. The Town of Greenville routinely monitors for contaminates in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1st to December 31st 2013. Data obtained before January 1, 2013 and presented in this report are from the most testing done in accordance with the laws, rules and regulations. In 2013, The Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There were two potential sources of contamination identified for this system with a moderate susceptibility level. The assessment results are available in the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp or can be obtained from the Town of Greenville. In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we have provided the following definitions: Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL): The highest level of a contaminant allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG): The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l): One part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. Maximum Residual Disinfection Level (MRDL): The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal (MRDLG): The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. Picocurie per liter (pCi/L): A measure of the radioactivity in water. Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminates in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminates are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-4264791). We at the Town of Greenville would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed. If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Greenville WTP is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. The sources of drinking water (both tap and water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: Microbial contaminates, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations and wildlife. Inorganic contaminates, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban storm water runoff, and industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming. Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban storm water runoff, and residential uses. Organic chemical contaminates, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban storm water runoff and septic systems. Radioactive contaminates, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the protection for public health. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-4264791. Please DO NOT FLUSH your unused/unwanted medications down toilets or sink drains.

Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, we sometimes need to make improvements that will benefit all of our customers. These improvements are sometimes reflected in rate structure adjustments.

Frederick Joseph says he didn’t get to spend much time with his own father while growing up and consequently, it shaped him to be the father he is today with his own children. Joseph says he spends as much time with his four daughters as he can and loves being with them. Joseph’s four girls are: Kelly, who is 23-yearsold and has just graduated from North Florida Community College; Kimberly, who would have been 21-years-old this year, but was taken at the age of 10 due to a brain tumor; Kayla, who is 15-years-old and in the 10thgrade and Krystal, who is 12-years-old and in the 7thgrade. One of the hardest things Joseph says he did was to leave his daughters when he and wife Greta divorced and when speaking of his girls, Joseph becomes very emotional. Losing Kimberly was just as hard for him and he still insists on her name being written on every Father’s Day card he receives. If you wonder what it would be like as a Father to raise four girls and what the biggest struggle would be, thoughts of boyfriends or waiting in line for the bathroom might come to mind, but Joseph’s struggle was neither of those. He says the thing that worried him most was/is, “Will I be a good enough Dad for them.” Even though his girls are now at the age they are either focusing on their futures or wanting to hang out with their peers, Joseph tries to spend as much time with them as he can saying, “They don’t have as much time for an old man like me anymore, but the time we do spend together makes up for everything,” and he nishes by saying, “They are my heart.” www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, June 11, 2014 8A € Madison County Carrier HAPPYFATHER'SDAY SERVING UP REAL FOOD FOR REAL PEOPLE Hwy 53 & I-10 (850) 973-3115Open 24 hrsOpen 24 hrs Please Join Us For Fathers Day C e l e b r a t i n g O v e r 2 5 Y e a r s I n B u s i n e s s S e r v i n g T h e T r u c k e r s O f A m e r i c a C e l e b r a t i n g O v e r 2 5 Y e a r s I n B u s i n e s s S e r v i n g T h e T r u c k e r s O f A m e r i c a SERVING UP REAL FOOD FOR REAL PEOPLE C o m f o r t F o o d Z o n e @ I 1 0 & E x i t 2 6 2On Site Repair Shop(850) 971-5100Grill(850) 971-4240 Treat Dad On His Special Day! www.morrells.com Just in time for Our Manufacturers will be here giving HUGE FACTORY DISCOUNTS on all of our furniture!Everything in our top quality Swiss Grill lineup until Fathers Day!

SCHOOL www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, June 11, 2014 10A € Madison County Carrier Town of Lee Water System 2013 Water Quality ReportWe're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from two wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. The water is pumped from the well site, which is located west of town just off US 90. Both wells can produce 350 gallons of water per minute to the water treatment plant, which is located north of town. It then goes to a holding tank where it is aerated and chlorinated with gas chlorine. Lastly, water is pumped on demand to our two elevated storage tanks and into the distribution system. In 2012, the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system and a search of the data sources indicated no potential sources of contamination near our wells. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp. The TOWN OF LEE routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to federal and state laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1st to December 31st 2013. Data obtained before January 1, 2013, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations. We are pleased to report that our drinking water meets all federal and state re quirements. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Leonard Miller, Public Works Director or Daniel L. Plain, Town Manager at City Hall (850)971-5867. If you want to learn more, please attend any regularly sched uled meetings. They are held on the first Tuesday of every month at 7 pm. This report shows our water quality results and what they mean. As authorized and approved by the EPA, the state has reduced monitoring requirements for certain contaminants to less often than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from year to year Some of our data; inorganic contaminants, radiological contaminants and lead and copper contaminants, though representative, are more than one year old. All drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants.: The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions: Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow. Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations oftrihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR. Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. NDŽ means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis. Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (g/l): one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l): one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Town of Lee is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: (A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. (D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. (E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agencys Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). We work around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap. We ask that all of our customers help us to protect our water sources, which are heart of our community, our way of life, and our future. Town of Lee, FL MCHS FFA Host Award BanquetBy Jessie R.

Madison County Central School had quite a few positive changes this year, and among those changes was the introduction of a school Sports Banquet. The banquet was hosted by the MCCS Athletic Department and was enjoyed by the parents and denitely by the players themselves, as the night was dedicated to them and their hard work. The evening kicked off with Dr. Willie Miles acknowledging the hard work of coaches and student athletes for the year and discussed the benets of having sports programs at the school, and of course, how important an education was for the players. Following his opening speech, guests were treated to a dinner of spaghetti, served by "Italian" servers made up of parents and grandparents, who donned chef's hats and moustaches in order to look the part. After dinner, student athletes were given some real-life tips on playing pro-ball and how education played an important part of that dream. Madison County alumnus Jeremy Haynes who played professional ball for about six years, told the players that in order to beat the odds and play professional sports, education and sacrice was crucial. After Haynes' speech, Mike Ragans, MCCS's Athletic Director, took the podium and before handing out the awards, told players that the teams present contained the best eighth graders MCCS has had in a long, long time." Awards rst went to all team members having the highest GPA and were followed by sports awards. The evening ended with Dr. Miles' closing remarks, which contained a video of all the bloopers that occurred during the taping of the team's individual recordings done for the evening. The closing blooper was of Dr. Miles, who upon seeing the blooper, ran from the room and out the double doors, signaling a fun end to the evening. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, June 11, 2014 12A € Madison County CarrierSPORTS MCCS Holds Sports Banquet Greene Publishing, Inc.

The caller was identied as Carlton Wyche but would not inform communications what the emergency was. Upon arrival the deputy found that there was no emergency or problems requiring Law Enforcement to respond. Wyche was highly intoxicated and repeatedly called 911 for no valid reason. The deputy placed Wyche under arrest without incident. Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) showed that Wyche had called 911 the day before requesting a deputy. Upon arrival that deputy found Wyche lying in his yard again highly intoxicated. When asked what his emergency was, Wyche requested the deputy to take him and his dog for a ride. The deputy refused and left. Records show that Wyche has been arrested three prior times for misusing 911. Wyche has been charged with misuse of 911 and disorderly intoxication.Madison Resident Misuses 911Carlton Wyche By Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc. AMadison resident was charged with criminal use of identification and grand theft after using a man’s driver’s license to cash checks. According to the Madison Police Department report, a man came to the Madison Police Department concerning $400 that had been taken out of his account that he did not withdraw. He advised Patrolman Travis Johnson that he spoke with the bank manager at Bank of America on Thursday, May 15 and was informed a check was cashed in his name and the person used his driver’s license as identification. He also informed Ptl. Johnson he lost his wallet two months prior. The man provided a copy of the check and it appeared to be a starter check from Wells Fargo as there was no information on the top left corner. After the $400 check was cashed, the Wells Fargo account holder placed a “stop payment” on the account. When Bank of America discovered the check that was cashed was invalid, they took the money out of the victims account, making him a victim of grand theft. Ptl. Johnson made contact with the Bank of America teller who cashed the check on Wednesday, May 28, and gave Johnson a description of a white Ford SUV the suspect was driving. The teller never saw the driver’s face because he was in the lane furthest from the window. The teller informed Ptl. Johnson the suspect had come once before to cash the $400 check, but was not cashed due to the account not being active. The suspect returned with the victim’s driver’s license and she cashed the $400 check. The suspect returned a third time and tried to cash another check for $1,460 but the teller became suspicious and refused. The City of Madison Police Department received a complaint from Bank of America on Friday, May 30, concerning a man trying to cash a check for $170 in the victim’s name, and due to the previous investigation, observed the driver was not the man the check was made out to. Sgt. Investigator James Roebuck went to the bank and made contact with the driver of the white Ford SUV and identified him as Joshua Jerrel Boynton. Sgt. Investigator Roebuck called into Communications and discovered Boynton's driver’s license was suspended. Boynton was detained and transported to the Madison Police Department where he admitted to using the victim’s driver’s license to withdraw money. Boynton was charged with criminal use of identification and grand theft. Man Uses Drivers License To Steal MoneyJoshua Boynton

Story SubmittedAgriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that eligible farmers and ranchers can sign up for U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) disaster assistance programs restored by passage of the 2014 Farm Bill. "We implemented these programs in record time and kept our commitment to begin sign-up April 15th," said Agriculture Secretary Vilsack. "To ensure enrollment goes as smoothly as possible, dedicated staff in over 2,000 Farm Service Agency offices across the country are doing everything necessary to help producers who have suffered through twoand-a-half difficult years with no assistance because these programs were awaiting Congressional action." Depending on the size and type of farm or ranch operation, eligible producers can enroll in one of four programs administered by the Farm Service Agency. The Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) and the Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) will provide payments to eligible producers for livestock deaths and grazing losses that have occurred since the expiration of the livestock disaster assistance programs in 2011, and will include calendar years 2012, 2013 and 2014. The Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees and Farm-Raised Fish Program (ELAP) provides emergency assistance to eligible producers of livestock, honeybees and farm-raised fish who have suffered losses because of disease, severe weather, blizzards and wildfires. Enrollment also begins for the Tree Assistance Program (TAP), which provides financial assistance to qualifying orchardists and nursery tree growers to replant or rehabilitate trees, bushes and vines damaged by natural disasters. Producers signing up for these programs are encouraged to contact their local FSA office for information on the types of records needed and to schedule an appointment. Taking these steps in advance will help producers ensure their application moves through the process as quickly as possible. Supporting documents may include livestock birth records, purchase and transportation receipts, photos and ownership records showing the number and type of livestock lost, documents listing the gallons of water transported to livestock during drought and more. Crop records may include purchase receipts for eligible trees, bushes, or vines, seed and fertilizer purchases planting and production records, and documentation of labor and equipment used to plant or remove eligible trees, bushes or vines. Producers have three to nine months to apply depending on the program and year of the loss. Details are available from any local FSA office. For the Livestock Forage Disaster Program, producers have until January 30, 2015 to sign up. For more information, producers may review the 2014 Farm Bill Fact Sheet, and the LIP, LFP, ELAP and TAP fact sheets online, or visit any local FSA office or USDA Service Center. The Madison/Taylor FSA office phone number is (850) 973-2205. The Jefferson/Leon/Wakulla FSA office phone number is (850) 997-2072.USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer. To file a complaint of discrimination, write to USDA, Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights, 1400 Independence Avenue, S.W., Stop 9410, Washington, DC 20250-9410, or call toll-free at (866) 632-9992 (English) or (800) 877-8339 (TDD) or (866) 377-8642 (English Federal-relay) or (800) 845-6136 (Spanish Federal-relay). www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, June 11, 2014 16A € Madison County CarrierFARM& OUTDOORS BAILEY MONUMENT CO 740252 Sign Up For USDA Disaster Assistance Programs Restored By Farm Bill Gov. Scott And FWC Announce Saltwater And Freshwater License-Free Fishing DaysToday, Governor Scott and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced Floridians and visitors will be able to fish without a freshwater recreational fishing license on June 14 and 15. Governor Scott said, “Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World, and fishing is an economic engine for our state, providing jobs from Pensacola to the Keys. These designated license-free fishing days are a great opportunity for Floridians to celebrate summer with their families and loved ones, enjoy the freedom of the great outdoors, cast a line and get hooked on fishing.” “We hope visitors and residents alike will be able to join in the excitement of Florida’s freshwater fishing this year by participating in one of our license-free fishing days,” said FWC Chairman Richard Corbett. “This is an excellent opportunity to share the fun and togetherness of a fishing trip with the entire family or to introduce someone to a lifelong hobby of fishing.” The Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation’swww.TakeMeFishing.o rgwebsite is a place to learn about events sponsored by businesses and communities, as well as locating fishing sites, identifying recreational species and finding fishing tips. Other license-free fishing days are the first Saturday in September (Sept. 6, 2014) and the first Saturday after Thanksgiving (Nov. 29, 2014) that have been designated license-free saltwater fishing days, and the first Saturday and Sunday in April (April 4-5, 2015) have been designated a licensefree freshwater fishing weekend.

The Women’s Club was decorated with fresh owers and a variety of ne china. Ladies were invited to bring their own teacup, if desired, and encouraged to wear their best Sunday hat. The members of Junior Auxiliary served hot tea, a light lunch and assorted desserts as the guests enjoyed good company and great conversations. At the conclusion of the day, potted owers were given away as door prizes and each guest received assorted decorated seed packets to thank them for attending. The seed packets included the Margaret Lindsey quote that inspired the oral themed tea, “This very moment is a seed from which the owers of tomorrow’s happiness grow.” The Mother-Daughter Tea was free of charge and the Junior Auxiliary plans to make this an annual springtime event.

Charles Spurgeon was one of the great preachers of the Gospel in the 19thcentury. His church in London touched that city, plus, in a measure, the entirety of England. He came from a family that was quite well-to-do; therefore, he was well educated as a young man. During that time, he became very concerned about his soul. He joined several churches, but to no avail. The hunger, the thirst, the longing were not satisfied. In other words, the emptiness and the void were not filled. As the months went by, he became more and more concerned, more and more perturbed, which he attempted to alleviate in various ways, but with no success. One particular night, greatly agitated of soul, he was walking the streets of London. It began to rain, and he sought shelter. He saw a light ahead, and thinking it was some type of public place, he hurried there thinking to get out of the rain. To his surprise, it was a small mission, a small church. He walked inside out of the rain, and there were only a few people present. There was a man behind the pulpit preaching, but after a few moments, it was very obvious that he was, at the same time, very uneducated, which grated the nerves of Spurgeon. The bad grammar and the halting English did not endear itself to the educated young man. The man's subject that night as he was preaching was "Look to Him!" Of course, his theme was Christ, and his petition was that people should come to Christ, and if they did, the thirst of their soul would be satisfied. "Look to Him!" Those words seized the soul of Spurgeon. Holy Spirit conviction set in. In a few moments, he forgot the bad grammar and the halting English. The uneducated accent ceased to trouble him, with the words, "Look to Him," looming large in his heart. That night, Charles Haddon Spurgeon found Christ, and in that little mission where he said "Yes" to Jesus, the thirst of his soul was completely satisfied, even as it has been satisfied in the hearts and lives of untold millions. In a moment's time, every question was answered! The void was filled! He was "born again." The "water of life" had been offered to him, offered freely, and he had taken it. Let the reader understand that this man had joined several churches before now, but to no avail, showing that the church cannot satisfy the longing of the human heart, and neither can anything else. In fact, if the church doesn't preach Jesus and Him Crucified, and do so as the constant theme of its existence, then the church is of no consequence. It is Jesus, and Jesus alone, who can give the "water of life." And how does He do this grand and glorious thing? CHRIST CRUCIFIED Paul said: "But we preach Christ crucified." (1 Cor. 1:23) Why did the great apostle use this term in this fashion? He did it because the Holy Spirit directed him accordingly. Someone asked me once, "Is salvation afforded by who Jesus is or what Jesus has done?," signifying the Cross. Perhaps it's a moot question, because it is only Christ who could have done this thing, and we speak of affording salvation, because man certainly could not do such for himself; however, the greater emphasis must always lay on the fact of "what" He did, referring to the Cross. Jesus Christ is God. As God, He had no beginning, which means that He always was, and in fact, always is. As God, He is unformed, unmade, uncreated, has always been, and always will be. But the simple fact of Him being God, as wonderful and glorious and necessary as that is, did not save anyone. If that alone could save, then He did not need to leave the Throne of Glory, and take upon Himself the frailty of humanity. But to the effect the salvation of mankind, the Cross was an absolute necessity. Due to the fact that God cannot die, God would have to become man. So let the reader always remember the following: Jesus as God, by that mere fact alone, did not save anyone. Jesus, the Miracle Worker, did not save anyone. Jesus the Healer did not save anyone. It was Jesus the Saviour who redeemed lost humanity, and He did so "by the Cross, having slain the enmity thereby." (Eph. 2:16). In that way and that way alone could man be reconciled to God. He had to go to the Cross, there shed His life's blood, which atoned for all sin, past, present, and future, at least for all who will believe, which made it possible for man to be saved. That's why Paul said, "We preach Christ crucified." If the church doesn't "preach the Cross" (1 Cor. 1:21), then the church is not preaching the Gospel, which means that no "water of life" is offered. Sadly, most chu rches, and I exagg erate not, are offering everything in the world except "the water of life." I say that because they aren't preaching Christ and Him crucified, so that means that no matter what else they preach, no lives will be changed, but if we preach the Cross, glorious and wonderful things happen. Lives are changed! Bondages of darkness are broken! The sick are healed! But only as we preach the Cross! 2B € Madison County Carrier € Wednesday, June 11, 2014 Path of Faith The The Pulpit PulpitBy Rev.

We are reminded in God's Holy Word that “love never fails” and the love of friends and family and the community are being shown as everyone rallies around Denise Ellison to raise money for medical treatment. This Saturday evening, June 14, Midway Baptist Church will host a gospel music fundraiser at the church located at 338 SE Midway Church Road. The concert is being held to help raise money for Denise Ellison for much-needed medical treatment. If anyone is unable to go to the fundraising concert, they can still make a deposit in a special account that has been set up for Denise at Madison County Community Bank. Simply go in the bank, or stop by the drive-through teller, and tell them you wish for the money to go into the Denise Phillips Ellison Benefit Fund. All proceeds will go towards Denise and her needed treatments. The group Chapel Road will headline the concert. Chapel Road was formed by Brian Norris and Kristen Kronatser while they were singing together in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Later, they were joined by Brian's cousin, Jacqueline Ratliff, to form the trio that performs today. They have a polished Southern gospel sound that is a favorite of audiences wherever they sing. Midway Baptist Church is located off Highway 53 South, south of Interstate 10, exit 258, or off CR 255 South, south of Interstate 10, exit 262. Everyone is welcomed to attend and all donations are appreciated. Denise Ellison

The Crofts composed such beautiful gospel sings as “(I Can't Even Walk) Without You Holding My Hand” and “I Believe He Died for Me.” Joyce Croft decided to continue the tradition of the free bean supper and gospel sing and this year to bring it to Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Campground. The bean supper will be held beginning at 5 p.m. at the Gathering at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park and Campground and the concert will begin at 7 p.m. inside the Yogi Bear Jellystone Park Opry Hall. Performers will include the Sammy Glass Family from Tennessee; New Tradition from Nashville, Georgia; Ken Williams from Adel, Georgia; Joyce Croft from Jasper; and Amber Lee Abbott from Madison. Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park is located just south of Interstate 10, Exit 258, at 1039 SW Old St. Augustine Road. Everyone is welcome. Photo submittedJoyce Croft, center, will continue her tradition of having the free bean supper this year, moving it to Madison. She is shown with Candice and Chris from the Sammy Glass Family.

Faith Baptist Church Pastor Bryan Phillips is bringing a little bit of nostalgia to the church as he plans to have Christian-themed drive-in movies shown at the church. The first movie will be Facing the Giants and because the weather has a better than average chance of being balmy and humid, the church decided to host the first movie indoors. The date for the first movie will be this Friday, June 13, beginning at 7 p.m. Popcorn will be served and bottled water will also be available. As the weather turns cooler, Pastor Phillips said that there will be grilled burgers and hotdogs and chili available outdoors. Faith Baptist Church is located at 1155 East US 90 in Madison. Everyone is welcome. Make plans to bring your family or some friends or members or youth from your church. VBS Set At Pine Grove Missionary Baptist Church By Jacob Bembry Greene Publishing, Inc. Students will train to become Agency D3 special agents during Vacation Bible School at the Pine Grove Missionary Baptist Church VBS set for Sunday, July 20, through Friday, July 25. The theme for the VBS is “Agency D3: Discover. Decide. Defend.” Students will collect and log evidence about Jesus. Using their best high-tech operative skills, they will examine eyewitness reports, physical proof and Biblical accounts to uncover and defend the truth about who Jesus really is. During the VBS, they will “Discover the truth of the gospel; Decide to believe it; and Defend the decision.” The students will be members of D3, which is an investigative agency organized to discover if Jesus is really who He claims to be and to examine if the Bible is true. This VBS is unusual because it has an apologetics theme, because people not only need to know the Bible is true and that Jesus is God's one and only Son, but they need to know how to defend what they believe when someone asks them why they believe it. The fun will begin at 5:30 p.m. with dinner served and will last until 8:45 p.m. each evening. Pine Grove Missionary Baptist is located at 4084 NE Rocky Ford Road, north of Madison.
