National Security Occasionally, I will begin writing an article for the following week and an intervening world event will cause me to switch gears. So it is with this week. The downing of another Malaysian Air jetliner, this time by a surface-to-air (SAM) missile over eastern Ukraine, has jumped to the forefront, so Im delaying my planned article for another week. The history of military aviation is just a century old. As Isaac Newton predicted about nature, for every action, there is an equal and opposing reaction, so it is with aviation. Anti-aircraft defenses were invented to oppose attacking aircraft. Defensive pursuit aircraft and anti-aircraft artillery (AAA) were first on the scene to oppose attacking fighters and bombers. They held sway for a half century until the 1960s, when radar guided SAMs were introduced. U-2 spy pilot Gary Powers was shot down over the USSR by a SAM, but the missiles really became prominent a few years later during the Vietnam War. Today, attackers have to face an array of three levels of defense: fighters, SAMs, and AAA. Presum ably one day not far off, new defensive systems such as lasers will further complicate military aviation. The SAMs I faced over North Vietnam in 1972, not ably the SA-2 Guideline, are crude by todays standards. The radar acquisition signal was a fairly wide broadband and relatively easy to pick up as was the terminal guidance signal. We carried a radar warning receiver (RWR) that could detect the signals and give us a rough idea where to look for the intercepting missile. We also carried electronic countermeasures equipment (ECM) that created confusion on the enemy radar screens as did chaff. The Vietnam War also gave us the Wild Weasel mission, specialty fighters that would seek out threat radars and shoot them with anti-radiation missiles (ARM) that would hone in on the emitting signals from the SAM site. To counteract that, the North Vietnamese employed optically guided SAMs that wouldnt turn on their guidance radar until the last few seconds of flight. Remember, for every action, there is an equal and opposing reaction. Thank you, Isaac. When these measures failed, the success of evading a SAM was to see the missile and maneuver the jet (and pray that they didnt shoot too many once). We would take it down meaning to unload the aircraft and gain energy (speed). The best place to position the incoming missile was at 10 or 2 o-clock relative to the nose. When the missile got to within a few seconds of intercept, we would break into the missile causing it to overshoot. Simply put, the last ditch maneuver was a game of high stakes chicken. Did I mention that the missile flew at three times the speed of sound? The missile wouldnt actually have to hit to register a kill. The SA-2 warhead was huge (400 pounds) and had a proximity fuse. If it exploded within 200 feet of our aircraft, we were dead, or at least the aircraft was no longer flyable. One of the most exciting missile engagements I ever witnessed took place over the Gulf of Tonkin, just east of the North Vietnamese port of Dong Hoi. Our flight leader was being tracked by an incoming missile. To defeat the missiles tracking solution, he was descending and turning toward the missile. He was down to 200 feet over the water when the missile impacted the water about a quarter mile behind him. The darn thing was as big as a telephone pole, flying at Mach 3. It made quite a splash. So much for my history lesson about SAMs of old; let me tell you what I think happened over the Eastern Ukraine with MH Flight 17. The aircraft was at cruise altitude flying about 550 knots on autopilot and the passengers might have been eating an inflight meal. The SAM that engaged the defenseless Boeing 777 was a SA-11 with a 24 mile range. Since the airliner was cruising at 33 thousand feet (5 miles), the airliner was probably right over the top of the SAM site when the missile exploded. I doubt if the pilots ever saw it coming since it likely approached from beneath. Even if they had seen it flying toward them, there wasnt anything they could do to defeat the missile. They were sitting ducks. I doubt if the missile hit the aircraft directly from the photos Ive seen. Pr obably the proximity fuse detonated the 150 pound warhead within a few hundred feet of passing the 777 and blew off a flight control surface such as a flap or even a wing. A new photograph indicates that shrapnel from the warhead penetrated the cockpit. The main crash site shows that most of the aircraft was intact when it struck the ground and ignited fuel burned the wreckage. There were 298 souls who lost their lives in this horrible tragedy including many children. The Russians are responsible. They supplied the SAM and trained the operators. Russia has been fomenting the unrest in the Eastern Ukraine and supplying the rebels with sophisticated heavy weapons like the SA-11. Theyve shot down civilian airliners like this before. Remember KAL 007 in 1983. That was a case of mistaken identity which is likely the cause of this disaster as well. Regardless of intentions, this destructive weapon was in the hands of reckless, irresponsible people.Weve all heard the stories that our parents and grandparents would tell of how hard life was when they were young; having to walk to school, having to salt-pack food because there were no freezers, having to cover meat in lard in order to keep it from spoiling, having to milk the cow every morning for fresh milk to drink, and/or having to travel by mule for days to get to market to buy something they needed. Those stories never meant much to me when I was a kid. In fact, it did nothing but make my parents seem even older than what I thought they already were. But I watch todays youth, and listen to the complaints of how hard life is and I just have to laugh. At my ripe old age of 45, just comparing my childhood to theirs seems insanely incomparable. I sat and came up with some points from the 1970s and 1980s vs. 2014. First and foremost The majority of todays youth do not know what a hard day of work is. The majority of them come home from school and sit on the couch and watch TV or play their electronic games all night. The majority of them feel the world has come to an end if their parents make them get a job when they turn 16 or 18. In my household when we got home from school, regardless of our age, we worked. When work was nished, THEN you went home and you did your homework. IF there was time left over before bedtime, then you got to sit and watch TV. In my household we either worked at the ofce supply store, the newspaper, the farm, or were planting pine trees till dark. We didnt have computers. We had to write everything longhand. We balanced our checkbooks via a paper statement, we paid our bills with a check and envelope, we did our business bookkeeping longhand on those 40column pads, we had to handwrite school term papers or type them on a typewriter (without a delete key and we had to use correction tape and white-out). We didnt have the Internet. If we wanted to know something, or write a school paper, we had to go to the library and search through encyclopedias. Of course, we couldnt just use one source, so we had to get several different encyclopedias AND look up several books on the subject too by using the card catalog and searching through thousands of books to nd that one book. We didnt have satellites and cable television. We had ONE channel Channel 6. Some of the lucky people got channels 6 and 10; and if you were really lucky, you got Channel 27 on good days (but possibly by putting aluminum foil on the rabbit ears to get it and then you still had to watch the station through the snow). If the President was on that night he was on all three stations; and the Jerry Lewis Telethon that made television unwatchable for 24 hours. We didnt have 100 plus channels to switch between. Which leads in to Where is the remote? As children, we didnt have a remote. If you were one of the lucky households to have two or three channels and you wanted to see something different, you GOT UP and went and changed channels yourself; and of course, we children were always the remote for our parents. Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon didnt exist. We got cartoons on Saturday mornings ONLY. We waited all week just to watch Bugs Bunny, the Roadrunner, the Smurfs, Scooby Doo and Speed Buggy. We didnt have email, texting, unlimited long distance or Facebook. If we wanted to talk to somebody, we had to write them a letter with a pen and piece of paper. Then we had to put it in the envelope, go to the post ofce, buy a stamp and mail it. Then it would take a week to get to them, a few days for them to write back, and a week for them to mail it back to us. If we wanted to talk to someone on the telephone, long distance, our parents would time us so that the phone call wouldnt cost them a fortune. And many houses had party-lines and had to share the phone lines. We didnt have cell phones. If we left the house, we just didnt get to talk to any of our friends, until we came back home (and that was after school, work, and homework was nished). We didnt have PlayStation, Xbox or Wii. We had Atari with about two games; Asteroids and Space Invaders. No high resolution graphics, no killing other people, no digital surround sound. We shot at rocks or aliens, in black and white, and it was the same game over and over and over and over. We didnt have PSPs, IPhones, Gameboys, IPads or IPods to play with in the car, on road trips; and we sure didnt have portable or built-in DVD players in the car to watch movies on. We actually had to read a book, talk with the family or play games like: searching for every alphabet letter on billboards and signs, trying to nd all 50 states on car tags, or playing the Im going on a trip game. When things got really boring on a long road trip we could always revert to singing 100 bottles of beer on the wall. We didnt have IPods to download thousands of songs onto. We had 45 and 33 1/3 RPM records, which we had to be very careful with as to not scratch them or we could never hear that song all the way through again. We had 8-track tapes and then cassette tapes. If we wanted to hear a particular song then we had to hit the fast forward button, click play, click fast forward, click play, click fast forward, click play oops too far click rewind, click play, click rewind, click play. But, the worst of it all was when your tape got eaten by the player. The tape would wrap around the player and we would spend 30 minutes very carefully unwinding the mess from the player and then keeping the tape straight as we would roll it back into the cassette with a pencil. If we didnt have an 8track or cassette with a song we wanted then we had to call it in to the radio station and sit by the radio all day with our tape recorder, ready to mash record when the song nally came on; and then the DJ would usually talk during the rst part of the song and ruin it. We didnt have the luxury of complaining about our household chores with sayings such as I dont want to load/unload the dishwasher. I dont want to unload the dryer we didnt have dishwashers and dryers; we actually had to wash dishes by hand and hang clothes on a clothesline. And there was no such thing as calling HRS if our parents spanked us. If we did wrong, we got beat for it. If we did wrong at school, then the principal beat us and when we got home we would get beat again. Discipline was actually accepted back then and was considered a good thing. The saying, it takes a village to raise a child was alive and well because all of our friends parents had permission to beat us if we did wrong at their house, also. As I sit here, in my mid-life age, I might not have had to walk to school uphill in the snow, both ways but I think my life was pretty dang hard compared to what todays youth is suffering through. And if you think your kids dont think youre too old as it is, turn on some black and white re-runs of Andy Grifth or Lucile Ball and see what kind of looks they give you then. But I might add, those sort of shows will ALWAYS be so much better than the garbage they put on television now-a-days. Until then .see you around the town.www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 23, 2014 2 Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS Emerald Greene Publisher Joe Boyles Guest Columnist Emerald's Gem Box Washington Teens Call Police After Strange Man Refuses To Leave Couch Or Stop Drinking Whiskey Woman Posted Seles In Stolen Dress A Washington man who was making himself right at home on a stranger's couch was arrested for investigation of criminal trespassing after he refused to leave the cushy piece of furniture or stop slugging whiskey.

She was a loving daughter, sister, mother and grandmother. A light has gone out,without so much as a icker, and all we have left are the precious memories of how brightly it burned and the warmth it gave us. Connie leaves behind three children: Jennifer L. Sump (Robert Sump) of Milton Fl.; Joseph J. Seals (Kelley Seals) of Santa Rosa Beach, Fl.; and Frances Scott of Madison. Five grandchildren: Taylor Seals, Weslie Scott, Summer Seals, Robbie Sump and Andrew Sump. Three siblings: Barbara Lawson, Jimmy Nichols and Joe Nichols. Connie also leaves behind a loving niece, Danielle N. Ray (Chris Ray); a dearly loved companion, Dennis Ballek; and a best friend of over 30 years, Sharon Shadrick. She is preceded by her parents: James and Edna Seals; two sisters: Carmelita and Judith Seals; a brother, Danny Nichols and brother-inlaw, Raymond Lawson. Connie was born in San Diego, Calif., on March 28, 1957. She grew up in the Keys, Naples and Madison, Florida. She moved to Milton in 1990, where she has resided since. Connie worked in the medical eld for over 30 years. She was the rst female E.M.T. for the Madison County Sheriffs Department, a Registered Nurse, the House Supervisor, the Medical Director for Santa Rosa Medical Center and later the Medical Director. Connie worked in many medical facilities, including nursing homes, Sacred Heart Hospital, Moonlighting Nurses on Call and Santa Rosa Medical Center. Nursing was her passion and it was her mission in life to take care of the sick. Connie loved life, she was always the life of the party. Connie loved to ride her Harley Davidson every chance she got. Connie was a member of the Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.). She was the president of the Northwest Florida Chapter of the Ladies of Harley as well as a member of the Ladies of the Confederacy. She loved the water, whether it was shing, swimming or just collecting sea shells. Connie was happy just being near the water. Connie even dabbled a little in the making of novelties with sea shells. She was our mother and the center of our world. We will miss her more than words could ever express. We know that she was in pain and has suffered for many years. We will cherish the time that we had with her. We will always have the memories of our mother. Connie always told us kids that when she passed, that we should not be sad, but happy for her. John 14:27-29 says: Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: Not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father; for my Father is greater than I. And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe. Services were held at Pine Grove Baptist Church in Madison. The viewing was from 12:45 p.m. until 1:45 p.m., and the service at 2 p.m., on Monday, July 21.Have something you would like to add to the Community Calendar?

Green's great-gr eat-grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. W.J. Toole; 2. Lawrence and Pattie Toole Green, his great-grandparents; 3. L.M. Green, his grandfather; 4. Lonnie and Cordie M iss Cordie Welch, his great-uncle and great-aunt.By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.For quite some time, Madison residents near Lake Francis have been seeing the construction equipment near the old Van H. Priest warehouse building near the Madison Woman's Club, watching the gradual transformation from vacant commercial building to the newest location for the Taylor County-based Joe P. Burns Funeral Home. The transformation of the red-brick building, which dates back to the early 20thcentury, is a project that has been about 18 months in the making, when Burns Funeral Home rst approached the City of Madison for permission to open their newest location there. Once the project was approved, it took about 12 months of construction work to shape the building into a serene and gracious place for grieving families to make nal arrangements for their loved ones. For Steve Green, one of the owners and funeral directors, it is also about "coming home." His grandfather grew up in Lee, right off of Old Blue Springs Road. His father's grandmother was Pattie Toole, a schoolteacher who later married Lawrence Green, and whose sister, Steve Green's great-great Aunt Cordie Toole Welch, was also a long-time school teacher in the Lee area, known to everyone as "Miss Cordie" or "Aunt Cordie." In fact, Miss Cordie was proclaimed "Ms. Lee" by the Town of Lee in 2001, when she was 94 years old. Her two sons, Billy and Burton Welch, are also well known and well-remembered by Lee residents. Pattie Toole's father, Green's great-greatgrandfather, was William Jackson "W.J." Toole, known affectionately to most of his descendents as "Grandpa Jack." A member of Macedonia Baptist Church since 1869, he passed away in the fall of 1937 and was buried in the church cemetery. W.J. Toole was the son of John J. Toole, who served in the Civil War and is buried in Oakridge, Va. During the Great Depression, some branches of the family migrated toward the central part of the state, following any available jobs, while other relatives remained in Madison County. Green is related to the Welch and Toole families who still live there. On the Green side of the family, Green traces the family back to his great-great-great-great grandfather Jacob Green, an Irish immigrant who immigrated to South Carolina in 1776. His son Lewis moved to Hamilton County sometime around 1840, and eventually acquired over 100 acres of land between the Suwannee and Withlacoochee Rivers, as noted by a document signed by President James K. Polk. Jacob also moved down to Hamilton County in the 1840s, and both men are buried at the fork of the rivers in unmarked graves. The graves and the land are now part of the Suwannee River State Park. Green had wanted to come back to Madison for some time, when he spotted the old Van H. Priest building in November 2012. He immediately fell in love with both the building and the gorgeous location beside the lake. Wanting to keep a sense of the area's history, he and Tommy Murrow, co-owner in the business who is also a funeral director, tried to stay true to the circa 1920s time period. "Our hearts were set on restoring the building," said Green. Details like the pressed-copper ceiling in the lobby, the shape of the chandeliers, the restored antique furniture in the lobby and the visitation rooms, all harken back to that period, or earlier. He is very aware of the history surrounding the location, when a railroad line ran right through what is now the parking lot (they found old railroad spikes when they put the parking lot in), and there was possibly an ice plant on the other side. He is planning an Open House and Dedication on August 12, beginning with a ribbon cutting at noon. He wants the Open House to be several hours so people can come by at their leisure. "I want them to be able to come inside and look around and get to know us," he said. "For me, this has always been a special place. I wanted to come back here and establish my family history again."

Story SubmittedThe Jefferson/Madison/Taylor Team of Big Bend Hospice is seeking volunteers to provide respite, companionship and care for our patients and families. Volunteers ll not only a Medicare requirement for the operation of Big Bend Hospice, they play a vital role in the quality of care received by those who have entrusted us to care for their loved one who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. Our patient/family volunteers provide services that allow the caregiver the opportunity to go buy groceries, to take care of nal arrangements, or to simply sit on the front porch and catch their breath. Some caregivers choose to stay at home while a volunteer is in the home and some take this opportunity to take care of things outside the home. Volunteers will often sit with patients and just listen. We often have situations where the caregiver and the patient are the only ones living in the home and our volunteers provide much needed respite for the caregiver who is alone and providing care 24/7. Licensed since 1983, Big Bend Hospice provides expert health care, encouragement, hope, compassion and companionship to people with a life-limiting illness, so that they can complete personal goals and nd spiritual and emotional peace. If you would like to volunteer, request bereavement services or request more information about our services, please call 850-878-5310 or visitwww.bigbendhospice.org.AROUNDMADISONCOUNTY6 Madison County Carrierwww.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 23, 2014 This machine represents the latest in digital mammogram technology, including an extraordinary feature.

Kiwanis Club member Edith Day stated that it was "the grandest thing" to have both the new hospital about to open and a new doctor who would be seeing patients there as well as being the practice medical director for the Family First Wellness Clinic that has just moved into a bigger facility in the old senior citizens center. "For too long we've gotten by with just minimal physical care," said Day. Dr. Payne also felt that it was an auspicious time to be arriving on the scene, with a new hospital opening and the Family First Wellness Clinic settling into its new space. She took a few moments to praise the "home-grown team" of Gina Sapp and Miki Richardson, and what they had accomplished for the citizens of Madison. When the hospital decided to close the Four Freedoms Clinic for budget reasons, Sapp and Richardson bought the practice and turned it into the Family First Wellness Clinic. They were so successful, they outgrew their original location, so they bought and revamped the old senior citizen's building. "They now employ eight people who have lived in Madison ten years or more," said Payne, and contributing to the health care and economic sides of the county. "In trying to keep health care revitalized, we need vibrant in-patient and out-patient care. I have to brag on our nurse practitioners, because they have done a lion's share." In addition to seeing patients in the hospital, she said she would be seeing patients in the clinic, in nursing homes, and also those patients who are homebound. In rural medicine, home visits are very necessary, especially in geriatrics. She needs to do at least one visit just to make sure the home is safe and to learn who the patient's back-up is. Are there neighbors who come by and check on him from time to time? Are there any family members in the home or nearby? Does everyone have her number handy so they can call if something is wrong? Dr. Payne grew up in Pensacola, and said that, after several years of being away, she and her husband were excited to be moving back to North Florida. "It's home," she said. Greene Publishing, Inc.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Born June 27, 1880, in Tuscumbia, Ala., Helen Keller could see and hear normally until she was stricken with a fever and illness at age 18 months, an illness so severe that left her blind and deaf. With the invaluable help of an exceptional teacher, Anne Sullivan, she broke through the world of darkness and isolation at age seven, learning to communicate with sign language and read braille. A few years later, she had even learned to speak. She was the first deaf-blind person ever to earn a bachelor of arts degree and went on to become a world famous writer, lecturer and political activist who counted among her friends such notables as Mark Twain, Charlie Chaplin and Alexander Graham Bell. As a tireless advocate for people with disabilities, she became one of the most noted humanitarians of the 20thcentury, credited with changing the way Americans viewed the disabled. In 1921, she began the American Foundation for the Blind, having discovered through research that many forms of blindness were preventable, and campaigned against dangerous and unhealthy labor conditions that sometimes led to blindness among workers. In 1925, she attended the Lions Club International Convention in Cedar Point, Ohio, and challenged Lions to become knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness. Below are some excerpts from her speech: What I offer you is full of splendid opportunities for service... The American Foundation for the Blind is only four years old. It grew out of the imperative needs of the blind, and was called into existence by the sightless themselves. It is national and international in scope and in importance. It represents the best and most enlightened thought on our subject that has been reached so far. Its object is to make the lives of the blind more worthwhile everywhere by increasing their economic value and giving them the joy of normal activity.... The opportunity I bring to you, Lions, is this: To foster and sponsor the work of the American Foundation for the Blind. Will you not help me hasten the day when there shall be no preventable blindness; no little deaf, blind child untaught; no blind man or woman unaided? I appeal to you Lions, you who have your sight, your hearing, you who are strong and brave and kind. Will you not constitute yourselves Knights of the Blind in this crusade against darkness? The Lions Club accepted her challenge and their work ever since has included sight programs aimed at preventable blindness.AROUNDMADISONCOUNTY www.greenepublishing.com Madison County Carrier 7 Wednesday, July 23, 2014 B u s i n e s s C a r d D i r e c t o r y BAILEY MONUMENT CO 740252 PICKLESANDSONSWELDINGANDFABRICATIONHELDGRANDOPENING Greene Publishing, Inc.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Acheerful heart is good like medicine, but a broken spirit drieth up the bones. Proverbs 17:22 Thank God for music, said Master of Ceremonies Timothy McCray, referencing the quote from Proverbs as the Madison County Boys Choir Diamonds and Denim Banquet got underway. Music, he added, plays a big part in the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. Music has called people to worship and sent them to war. Music cheers the sorrowful, shouts with the joyful and the cheerful of heart, and sings praises to the Lord. Music is a wonderful metaphor for the church, said McCray. We may all sing different notes, but we sing the same song. Great music will ll this house tonight. Feel free to sing along and dance. The Diamonds and Denim Banquet, with the Madison County Boys Choir and the Roberson family performing to recorded songs as various singing groups, brought back memories for many and entertained the house, garnering a standing ovation at one point. The performance concluded with the entire ensemble onstage for two nal numbers, That's What Friends Are Forand We Are The World.God bless Madison County, McCray concluded.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Growing up in Indiana, just east of Columbus, Ohio, Sidney Johnson had always dreamed of being a professional railroad man, studying engineering in college toward that goal, and working his way through school by getting his pilot's license, delivering new airplanes for Piper out of Florida and flying shipments of surfboards on the weekends. As he told his story to the Rotary Club, it seemed that everything about his life was something a little larger than life and definitely out of the ordinary. After college, he served in Vietnam, and then was recruited by the NSA to work with White House communications, but recruitment didn't mean an automatic in. The selection process he went through was long and involved, including a background check that went all the way back to your fourth grade teacher, he told the club. After such microscopic investigations and an intense screening process that included question after question after question about personal history and habits, very personal queries about every aspect of life imaginable, the initial group of about 140 recruits had dwindled down to three. However, he made it through, and was assigned to the White House to provide the radio, telephone and cryptography service for President Nixon wherever he went. He was the one who would set up the only two microphones allowed at the podium, that would provide feeds to the press. The reason for the restriction was the president's safety. Large, tube-shaped devices pointed directly at the face could easily conceal something dangerous, so anything allowed that close to Commander-in-Chief was going to be equipment the Secret Service owned, operated, inspected and set up themselves, especially during that time of the Vietnam controversy, riots, street marches and social unrest. Any trips the president undertook required days, or maybe weeks of meticulous planning and preparation, everything from mapping out motorcade routes, to knowing where to find the right type of fuel at each stop for Air Force One, to assessing speaking location for security purposes, to setting up the radio network for the Secret Service, to inspecting the hotels where the president and his entourage would be staying, to knowing where the hospitals were located and planning out routes to get there. It was not something that could be done in one day, he said One the highlights of his White House job was his trip around the world with Vice President Spiro Agnew in 42 days. In 1972, his military service was up, but despite being heavily recruited by the NSA to stay on, he left the White House world to pursue his dream of working with the railroads, something he would do for the next 35 years. However, it was anything but a settled life. He and his wife Jeri moved on average about once every 18 months, and their son grew up in cities all over the U.S. The railroad company thought nothing of telling you on Friday afternoon about your new job in another town Monday morning, he said. During his 35-year-career with the railroads, he saw a lot of changes, mostly in the form of mergers. In 1965, there were 47 railroad companies; today, there are only five large lines left. In fact, it was because of a merger that he was able to retire at age 54. However, in spite of all the moving around the country he had already done, he still wanted to travel. With their son now grown, he and his wife began traveling all around the world and visited every single continent, including the Mongolian Mountains and nine trips to Africa. But even after seeing the wonders of the world, he has a fondness for the railroad days, attending a railroad convention every year in Terre Haute, Indiana. That's the neat thing about Rotary, said Pete Bucher, Rotary Club President, after Johnson concluded his presentation. Everybody has a unique story of who they are. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, July 23, 2014Madison County Carrier 9AROUNDMADISONCOUNTY New Rotary Member Sidney Johnson Has Extraordinary Life Story Greene Publishing, Inc.

Portable Classrooms A Necessity As MCHS Renovation Project BeginsSubmitted By Madison County Superintendent Doug BrownThe Madison County School District has been awarded funding to begin a $16.8 million renovation project at Madison County High School. The renovations will take place over a period of two years and require some dislocation of students from regular classrooms to portable buildings during portions of the project. A total of sixteen portable buildings will be placed on the east side of the school to accommodate students during Phase I of the project. Certain classes will meet in the portables commencing with the 2014-15 school year that begins on Monday, August 18. Although placing students in portable buildings is not ideal, we ask parents and students to understand that doing so is necessary to complete the renovation. When students step into the newly renovated MCHS, we believe they will be happy to have spent time in portables, said MCHS principal Ben Killingsworth. The renovation project will be addressed by school personnel at the MCHS Open House scheduled for Thursday, August 14 at 6 p.m. Parents and students are urged to attend. Superintendent Doug Brown said the District has saved significantly by utilizing previously used portable buildings instead of purchasing new units. The savings will allow greater amounts of funding to be directed to the renovation of the existing facility. District and school officials have also developed safety plans and will conduct safety drills to ensure that all students and staff are familiar with changes required by location in the portable buildings. We realize this is a bit of an inconvenience and a significant change for students and faculty, but we will make sure that safety and security of students is maintained, said Brown. Phase I of the renovation will focus on the north portion of the MCHS complex with other areas of the facility to be addressed in subsequent phases. When the renovation is complete, students will enjoy much improved classroom spaces, a remodeled cafeteria, and a host of infrastructure improvements. A new roof and enhanced entry points will be among the most noticeable changes to the exterior of the complex. Regular renovation updates will be posted to the District and MCHS web pages.

Speaking of His Son, God says, Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity (Hebrews 1:9) The incident of the cleansing of the temple reveals this stern side of the Lords nature. (John 2:14-16) Jesus here could not tolerate the hypocrisy of those who professed to love God but who made His sacred place of worship a place of prot. This was not a hate of those who had done this thing, it was founded upon and sprang from His love of righteousness. In other words, He still loved the sinner but hated the sin. Today many nd this impossible. If we only would follow the example Jesus left us and follow in His steps we would have the capacity to be righteously indignant at the sham and hypocrisy in our own lives as in the lives of others. We must have the courage to stand up and protest and to challenge evil wherever and whenever it appears. We must remember a mans character is revealed as surely by those things which he hates, as it is by those things which he loves. We must remember they did not hang Jesus on that cross because He was humble, meek and lowly. They drove those nails in His hands and feet, they drove that spear into His side because He had indignation and courageous zeal against sin. Now that is something to think about.

BoxGreene Publishing, Inc.Jan Ledsome, of Madison, traveled with Jewish Voice Ministries International to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on April 24 until May 6. She is a member of the First Baptist Church of Madison. Jewish Voice Ministries International offers a platform to share their faith through eye and dental treatment to proclaim the Gospel of Yeshua (Jesus in Hebrew). Ledsome is a retired optometrist of 45 years and was asked by doctors in Valdosta to join them on this mission trip. The group was assigned to the Gefat Tribe, one of Israels lost tribes, and is one of three lost tribes residing in Addis Ababa. The other two tribes are Yiber Tribe and Beta Tribe. Ledsome and the others in the group would wake every morning at 5:15 a.m., eat breakfast and board a bus to the clinic. They would arrive at 7:30 a.m. and people were lined up waiting for the clinic to open. Three clinics were offered: dental, eyeglasses and surgery. The clinics treated a total of 6,572 people. When the patients were done with treatment, they were offered a chance to receive counseling about Yeshua, the one true Messiah. Of those treated, 1,573 received counseling and 902 accepted Yeshua as their one true Messiah. Ledsomes most touching moment during her trip was when a 105-year-old man received eyeglasses and could see again to read the Bible. She tested him reading the Bible and he did not want to let it go. The joy could be seen on his face. He shook her hand out of appreciation. Most of the people treated were elderly people who had never been to a doctor before. Ledsome observed that the children were very respectful to their elders and would bring them to the clinic for treatment. Very few children were treated in the eyeglass clinic. Ledsome would work in the clinic from 7:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. or later and had very little time to see and explore Ethiopia but she enjoyed bringing sight to those who had thought it was gone forever. People dont care what you know, until they know you care, is a saying that Ledsome loves and equates to her trip to Ethiopia. Ledsome wants everyone to know that if they have been considering going on a mission trip but cannot travel, there are missions everywhere that require no travel. Simply helping others out is a mission of its own.

Upon arrival, deputies made contact with the intoxicated subject and identified him as Christopher Gianino, Jr., 21, of Greenville. Gianino, Jr. was extremely intoxicated and had empty cans of beer on the ground around him as well as his small dirt bike. Deputies convinced Gianino, Jr. to allow them to give him a ride home and loaded his dirt bike into the back of the patrol truck. Once arriving at the residence, Gianino, Jr. started acting disorderly and telling the deputies to handcuff him and take him to jail. Deputies tried to convince Gianino, Jr. to go inside and sleep it off, however, he refused to do so. Gianino, Jr. got into the back of the patrol truck and pushed his dirt bike to the ground while using abusive language toward the deputies. At that point the deputies placed Gianino, Jr. under arrest and escorted him to a patrol car. Gianino, Jr. refused to get in the patrol car and struggled against the deputies attempts. A deputy then used his department issued ECD Taser X2 to stun Gianino, Jr. in his thigh, causing him to comply. Gianino, Jr. was transported to the Madison County Jail without further incident. Gianino, Jr. was charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting an officer without violence.Christopher Gianino, Jr. Juvenile Arrested For Possession Of MarijuanaSubmitted by the Madison County Sheriffs OfceMadison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that on Friday, July 11 at 6:08 p.m., deputies received information that a group of juveniles had just left the Madison Liquor Store with bottles of liquor and were currently at property located on State Road 53 North. Deputies contacted the property owner who gave permission for deputies to respond and investigate. Upon arrival deputies made contact with a group of juveniles and inquired about possessing alcohol. One of the juveniles admitted to having an unknown male adult purchase the alcohol for him and admitted to having the bottle of liquor in his truck as well as marijuana. The deputy seized the liquor and marijuana and took the juvenile claiming ownership into custody. Deputies counseled the remaining juveniles in the presence of their parents of the criminal consequences for underage possession. Eight grams of marijuana were seized as evidence and the liquor was poured out and disposed of. The juvenile was charged with possession of marijuana less than 20 grams. The identity of the adult who purchased the alcohol for the juvenile is still under investigation.
