National Security Unbroken” is the title of Laura Hillenbrand’s 2010 best-seller about the life and times of Louie Zamperini. Louie died a couple of weeks ago in Southern California at the grand old age of 97. Hillenbrand’s book is set to be released in a major motion picture later this year. She is also the author of “Seabiscuit” about the legendary race horse that also was the subject of a popular movie. Louie Zamperini moved with his family at a young age to the South Bay city of Torrance, California. As a youth, he was high energy and constantly in trouble with local authorities for pranks and thievery. He always led the police on chases, overmatching them. His older brother Pete saw that he could channel Louie’s energy into running and in short order, was running faster and farther than all the competition. He set his sights on the 1936 Olympic Games. Louie was really a ‘miler’ but he was so young that he had no chance of making the US team in the 1500 meter race. At the last minute, he changed to the longer 5000 meter race, a new event for the teenager. With just four races under his belt, he made the US team and set sail for Berlin. Track was even more popular in those days and Louie was the pride of hometown Torrance. At Berlin, Louie qualied for the nal 5000 meter race. He was well back in the pack but a furious kick during the last lap brought him up to 7thplace and thrilled the German audience. He was taken into the center viewing box to meet none other than Adolf Hitler. Politics wasn’t important to a teenager and of course, this event happened years before the horrors of the Third Reich were revealed. Back home, Louie accepted a scholarship offer from Southern California to run track while studying. He set his sights on the 1940 Olympics but world conict caused that event to be cancelled. Zamp joined the military and began training as a bombardier. When America joined the war in late 1941, he was nishing his training and ready to accept a commission. The popular bomber to y was the sleek B-17. Instead, Louie was assigned to the ungainly B-24 Liberator. He joined a crew and they began to y their assigned aircraft. As 1942 progressed and his unit achieved combat ready status, they ew to Hawaii and into war. After several harrowing combat missions, Louie’s crew was assigned another aircraft and sent to search for a missing B-24 in the Central Pacic. It was May 1943 and an aircraft emergency led to their crash at sea. Three of the 11 survived the crash, including Louie, his pilot Russ Phillips and tail gunner Francis McNamara. They were adrift at sea with very little provisions, encircled by sharks. On day 33 following the crash, McNamara died. Once they were strafed by a Japanese plane. The two aviators patched their riddled raft and kept oating with the current westward toward Japanese held islands. Sharks were a constant menace. On day 47, after drifting more than two thousand miles, the two men were taken prisoner by the Japanese Navy. Initially they were well treated for their injuries by medical authorities, but when they entered the Japanese prisoner of war system, they were horribly abused. For more than two years through a succession of prisons, they survived using their wit and faith. Because Louie was an Olympic athlete and celebrity, he was singled out for ‘special treatment.’ With the war over in the fall of 1945, Louie returned to Torrance and his family. On the outside, he looked ne, but there was a lot wrong with him on the inside. Today, we might call this PTSD, posttraumatic stress disorder. There were nightmares and distrust. To dull the pain, Louie retreated to alcohol. Four years later with his new marriage in jeopardy, Louie attended a Billy Graham Crusade in Los Angeles. The topic for that evening was the 8thChapter of Saint John’s Gospel where Jesus encounters the adulterer. The ofcials are testing Christ by using the Mosaic law of stoning as the appropriate punishment. Jesus’ response is, “Let him who is without sin cast the rst stone.” Louie found redemption in this passage and turned away from sin toward a better life. Two months before Louie’s death, he was announced as the grand marshal for the 2015 Tournament of Roses Parade whose theme “Inspiring Stories” epitomizes his life. He will retain that honor and serve posthumously, a tting tribute to a great man. As Saint Paul says in his second letter to Timothy 4:7, “I have fought the good ght; I have nished the race; I have kept the faith.” So did Louie. Ihave written several articles concerning gluten-free baking and substituting products such as coconut, beans and rice for wheat ours, but since most people use wheat our (the most common our used in baking), knowing the difference between the different types of wheat ours and how they affect baking can be useful, especially when diagnosing baking problems or for changing a recipe to suit your taste. What distinguishes the difference between wheat ours on the grocery shelves is the amount of gluten they contain. (Which is also good information for those who are sensitive to gluten, but still may use some wheat our). The word gluten can be substituted with the word protein and it is what gives baked goods their structure. Heavily mixing batter or kneading dough can cause the gluten to become stronger and more elastic, increasing the gluten in the our further. Bread our is at the top of the strong/hard/high-protein our list, having one of the highest gluten contents, around 13 to 14 percent. This makes sense because you want your bread dough to be elastic and smooth so it will form a chewy crust that will hold together. It is also good for pizza dough. Whole-wheat our is also high in gluten content, making it best for bread baking but is more nutritious than bleached (white) ours as it contains the bran and germ that all-purpose ours have removed. The amount of gluten content depends of the type of wheat used. The US traditionally uses red wheat that has 15 to 16 percent gluten content and produces a heavier product that has a distinctive avor. White whole-wheat has almost as many nutrients as red wheat, but has a lower gluten content, 9 to 11 percent, giving a lighter product with a less bitter taste. All-purpose our is a middle-of-the-road our as far as gluten content, containing around 12 percent. This our is the best for low-maintenance bakers who prefer to use only one our because it can be used for many types of baked goods. Bread, cakes, pastries, pasta, cookies and pizza dough will all turn out well with this our and only professional bakers may be able to distinguish the difference between baked goods made with this common our or one considered a specialty our. Pastry our is towards the bottom of the soft/weak/low-protein list, making it best used for more tender baked goods. Pastry our has a gluten content of around 9 to 10 percent and makes excellent biscuits, mufns, cookies, pie dough and softer yeast doughs. There is also a whole-wheat version of this our. Cake our has slightly lower gluten content than pastry our, anywhere around 7.5 to 9 percent, and creates a very soft, ne texture. This our is preferable for cakes and pastries. Self-Rising our is basically all-purpose our that has leavening added, intended to give the busy baker a shortcut by combining these two ingredients, along with salt. It may not work for every recipe as leavening amounts may vary with recipes and combining ingredients ahead will cause the our to quickly lose its rising effectiveness, making baking even more unpredictable. I have recipes handed down to me that call for selfrising our and will usually use this our only in those specic recipes. If you’re not an avid baker, there is no reason to have all these ours on hand. As stated above, all-purpose our will work for just about any recipe. Cakes and pastries may be a bit heavier and bread may not be as crusty or chewy, but allpurpose will get you by. However, if you like to experiment, our is relatively inexpensive and it can be fun to see the effects different ours can have in your baked goods. Unless you’re one of those cooks/bakers who has an organized, always stocked and labeled pantry, at some point you will nd yourself in the middle of a recipe and realize that an ingredient you thought you had, you don’t. In the case of ours, there are ways to substitute without much, or any, notice in the nal baked good. Here is a list of some common substitutions you can make if you nd yourself short on our:  1 cup sifted cake our = 1 cup minus 2 tablespoons sifted all-purpose  1 cup all-purpose = 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon pastry our  1 cup pastry our = 1 cup minus 1 tablespoon all-purpose  1 cup self-rising our = 1 cup minus 1 tablespoon all-purpose plus 1 tsp baking powder and1/8teaspoon salt OR 1 cup minus 2 tablespoons bread our plus 2 tablespoons cornstarch Now that you know the our rules, let me say, “Rules are made to be broken.” I make a lot of cookies, but am always playing with ingredients and amounts when baking. I love the taste of the standard chocolate chip cookie made from the popular recipe printed on the back of a chocolate chips bag, but I prefer a thicker and chewier cookie and one that has more of a “bite” to it. For years I made my chocolate chip cookies using this recipe, altering it only by reducing the butter in order to give me a cookie with more “chew.” When talking cookies with a fellow baker one day, he suggested I try making my cookies with bread our to increase their structure. His suggestion makes perfect sense because the extra protein/gluten in bread our does give more structure to baked goods, resulting in a chewier texture. He suggested I add the initial amount of butter in the recipe back in, but I opted to go with my amount and instead increased the brown sugar to help tenderize the cookies. With a few other minor changes, I had exactly what I was looking for. My cookies came out looking hefty, not at, and had the chewiness I prefer in cookies. Knowing how ingredients work and the differences they can make in baking will allow you to change, or create, a recipe to suit your own personal taste. My cookie recipe is a great example of how to manipulate ingredients to gain the results you desire. If you would like to try these cookies, I’m including my recipe that uses bread our instead of all-purpose. Decide for yourself which version you like best, and with your new knowledge on ours, maybe you can do some experimenting of your own. Happy baking! My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies 2 c. bread our 1 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt c. unsalted butter, softened 1 c. dark brown sugar c. granulated sugar 2 tsps. vanilla extract 2 eggs 1 (12 oz.) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 c. chopped nuts Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine our, soda and salt in a small bowl; set aside. In a large bowl, combine butter, sugars, vanilla and eggs; beat until well combined. Add our mixture and beat just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. (If you have problems with sticking, use parchment paper; greasing the cookie sheet can cause cookies to atten). Bake about 10 minutes or until golden brown. Allow cookies to sit on baking sheet about two minutes before moving to a rack to cool completely.www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, August 6, 2014 2A € Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS Letter To The Editor Joe Boyles Guest ColumnistSearching For Ambrosia Rose KleinColumnistLetters to the Editor are typed word for word, comma for comma, as sent to this newspaper. All submitted letters must be 600 words or less -Knowledge Gives Flour Power Unbroken Iam concerned that the illegal aliens that recently entered the county in the boarder serge will be permitted to come to Madison County. I would like to be proactive as a resident of Madison county and ask our county commissioners and school superintendent if they are going to make sure that persons who are in our country illegally will be stopped from taking resources from our citizens here in Madison County. Will the illegal alien be required to show ID to open a bank account, enroll in school, vote, or register vehicles? Some cities are being told they can excuse these requirements. I am not afraid to say I cannot help these "poor people" when I have to ask, "Which one of my family or community members are going to go without as an illegal alien "takes"? Or, "Which law enforcement ofcer is going on the call for a person that is Not a citizen and is not a tax payer?" or "What about the teacher who has to change the classroom for a non-English speaker?" Now if the federal government is allowing illegal aliens to walk our streets, then maybe they should pay for it. This county would be well served to be proactive and set aside funds to bus any illegal alien caught to the Washington DC.’s Immigration Field ofce at 2675 Prosperity Ave., Fairfax, VA 22031. Use our newly, hardworking business owner Annett Bus lines to bus them to Jacksonville to take the Amtrak Train. Amtrak’s number is call 1-800-872-7245. On a nal note, even if the federal government was willing to "pay for it" they cannot be trusted to see that illegal aliens are fairly processed. And I mean, fair to US. It seems that the fundamental transformation of America by Mr. Obama is resulting in our traditions to be ignored, and the laws of the land to be ignored. Does Mr. Montford still support Mr. Obama? If so, why? Now, will the local businesses be ready to NOT salivate over the hefty ebt cards that the government may give these illegal aliens!? If not, and they support these illegal aliens settling here, then they will be selling their souls and the souls of our county! Nancy MoralIllegal Aliens Greene Publishing, Inc.

By Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.Touring a landll might not be on your Top-10 "to-do" list, but a recent tour of the Aucilla Area Solid Waste Facility in Greenville changed this reporter's perception of what a landll looks like and what it does. John McHugh, the Landll Administrator, was more like a proud Papa during the tour when he discussed the 20-year facility's future plans of holding open houses for the public and his eagerness to show off the area's beauty and cleanliness. McHugh is originally from Homestead, Fl. but moved to North Florida to attend Florida State University's College of Engineering, where he received his degree in Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering. After graduation, he worked for Jefferson County as their Assistant County Coordinator but left there to become the Landll Administrator at the Aucilla facility in Greenville. McHugh said, "Like many others, when I got to North Florida, I found the people and scenery too captivating to leave." One of the rst things on the tour was a small mountain covered in grass that t beautifully into the landscape. At the mountain's peak you can see for miles and take in the entire landll and beyond, never knowing you are actually standing on 20 years worth of waste from the four counties the landll services: Madison, Taylor, Jefferson and Dixie. McHugh explained the mountain starts as a "cell," a 10-acre area where waste is dumped and then covered with six inches of dirt, helping with decomposition of the waste as well as its odor. This process is repeated, layering waste and dirt until it's time to begin a new cell. The next stop on the tour was the leachate pond, where water that has touched municipal waste is collected and aerated before sending to the wastewater treatment plant in Greenville. Once there, the treated water will be returned to the environment, creating revenue for the city. Another way the landll helps create revenue is by selling the landll gases that are generated during the natural process of the bacterial decomposition from organic waste (such as trees). Once converted, landll gas (LFG) can be utilized in many ways. LFG can generate electricity, heat or steam; be used as an alternative vehicle fuel; or sold on the energy market as a renewable "green" power or gas. McHugh says the landlls of today are nothing like the landlls of the past in that they were nothing more than big holes you would back up to and dump trash in. "Today, federal guidelines have made modern landlls an intricate layering system with stricter regulations and increased innovation that allows us to make better use of the landlls, helping us to become better stewards to the environment." McHugh also says that being an Industrial Engineer gives him the knowledge and ability to work with the facility's eight employees, other engineers and the Aucilla Area Solid Waste Administration Board to help ensure that the needs of our member counties are met, for now and in the future.6A € Madison County Carrierwww.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, August 6, 2014 AROUNDTHETOWNOFGREENVILLEAucilla Area Solid Waste Facility in Greenville Greene Publishing, Inc.

By Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.The youth summer library program Fizz, Boom, Read! was taken to Greenville Elementary School last Thursday, offering kids an opportunity to learn while having fun. Cindy Pedicini, the Youth Services Coordinator for Madison, Lee and Greenville Libraries said the programs are done at the libraries “in house” but also go into the schools in order to reach children who otherwise may not attend due to lack of transportation. The Greenville Library, under the direction of Manager Kenya Dennis, hosted and attended the day’s event. The library partnered with the Humane Society, which spoke to the kids about being kind to animals, along with the Madison County Sheriff’s Ofce, which had two ofcers on hand to demonstrate their bite dogs and drug dogs. Also from the Sheriff’s Ofce, was an investigator with a ctitious crime scene who employed the kids to nd a suspect and help solve the crime. The event started out with “oohs and aahs” from the kids as Deputy Chris O’Brian brought out his K-9 dog Onyx who demonstrated the ability to search and nd narcotics that had been hidden inside a covered plastic tub. Onyx’s job was to sniff out the narcotics and upon discovery of the drugs, would sit and stare at the tub until released by O’Brian. Onyx, who has been with O’Brian since only April of this year, was successful at identifying the correct tub each time. Next up was Deputy Kevin Anderson who introduced his dog, Max, and with the help of O’Brian, demonstrated to the kids what it meant to be a “bite” dog. After donning a protective sleeve, O’Brian role-played the “bad guy” and Max, after receiving a command from Anderson, apprehended O’Brian by biting down onto his covered arm. Deputy Anderson and Max also performed some obedience training for the kids, who got a bigger kick out of seeing Max’s paws slide on the slick gym oor than seeing him sit and stay. Deputy Anderson has partnered with Max for two years. Laura Bevan out of Tallahassee, who is the Director for the Southern Regional Ofce at the Humane Society, was there to speak about dogs as well, but in a different manner. She spoke to the kids about being kind to all animals in their care (not just dogs) and subjects such as caring for pets by providing good food, clean water and comfortable beds were discussed. Also addressed was safety around animals. Kids were shown how to correctly approach a strange dog and how to pet the dog, if allowed. Bevan carefully touched on subjects such as animal cruelty and dog ghting and showed a short lm about a dog that had been the victim of dog ghting, how he was rescued and rehabilitated, and now living happily with a new family. In the nal portion of the program, Investigator Tina Demotsis was there to share her knowledge about Crime Scene Investigating, made popular right now by the television series, CSI. Demotsis has a Masters in Criminal Justice and has completed multiple courses in crime scene and investigations and has worked for the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Ofce as a Crime Scene Investigator where she worked for several years before coming to Madison County. After speaking to the kids about crime scene investigating, she informed the kids they would be junior detectives and would have opportunity to help her solve a crime. The kids were allowed to inspect an adjoining room where she had previously set up a crime scene involving missing cash, broken glass and a powdery substance along with other miscellaneous items. After hearing about suspects and ctional scenarios, the kids were then asked to solve the crime, which most were able to do successfully. Pedicini said the day was intended to expose the kids on how to have positive interactions with animals and to build repoire with local law enforcement, as well as having a good time while learning a little bit about the world around them. The Boys and Girls Club from Greenville and the Youth Adventure Sheriff’s Camp attended, with other kids also in attendance from Greenville Elementary.

By Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc.New Testament Christian School is starting the new school year off with new principal, Justin Riegsecker. He has been a part of the Madison community for nine years. He grew up in Indiana and met his wife, Rebecca, while they studied at Brownsville Revival School of Ministry where he received a degree in pastoral ministry. He was working at Corporate Graphics, while honing his pastoral skills, when he saw there was a need at New Testament Christian School for a principal. He has no previous experience but has the education of ve children of his own to be concerned about. His goals for his upcoming year at New Testament Christian School is to help the student be who God made them to be, provide the best education possible and provide an environment that allows for Biblical and moral values to be taught. "I am looking forward to serving the community and the people of the school for many years to come and seeing the students back to school on August 18," said Riegsecker. By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.In 2011, Kiwanis International began working with UNICEF toward eliminating the threat of maternal-neonatal tetanus worldwide, with a goal of raising $110 million by 2015 to ght the disease in the 59 countries where it was still endemic at the time, through Project ELIMINATE Maternal Neonatal Tetanus. Maternal neonatal tetanus (MNT) results when tetanus spores, found in the soil everywhere, come into contact with open cuts during childbirth. The disease strikes the poorest of the poor and those without health care in geographically isolated areas. The disease is almost always fatal; infected newborns suffer from extreme convulsions and are painfully sensitive to light and touch. The disease can claim the mothers' lives as well. So far, the disease has been eliminated from 35 of the 59 countries, but there are still 24 countries to go. In those countries, a newborn dies every nine minutes, meaning 160 babies die each day. MNT can be prevented by a vaccine that costs $1.80 per patient and provides lifelong immunity. A Zeller ($1250) contribution would save the lives of 690 babies, enough to ll 27 Kindergarten classes or form 62 soccer teams. So far, a combination of individual and corporate member pledges have almost reached that Zeller goal for the Madison Kiwanis Club. It would be the third such Zeller contribution to a Kiwanis International project for the Madison club. The rst Zeller gift was dedicated to George Willis, the club's longest-term member. The second was dedicated to Lucile Day, the club's longest-term female member. With three Zellers to its credit, the Madison Club also hopes that the Kiwanis International Foundation will look more favorably on its application for matching grant money to help build and furnish a park area for the Madison Youth Ranch. In this cycle, 11 clubs are competing for Foundation grants. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, August 6, 2014 8A € Madison County CarrierAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY One Lucky Winner Will Win A Pair Of Tickets!

Story SubmittedThe magic of the arts is endless. Identifying and cultivating children’s creative gifts and their inner artistic abilities open the door to condence, exploration, and academic success in education. Students at the New Millennium Charter School (NMCS) in Madison County are showcasing their condence, expanding their minds and succeeding in school every day with the help of the arts. The arts program at NMCS exposes children to drama, visual arts, dance and music. “There are so many gifted and talented children in Madison County. We see it every day in our students at NMCS,” says Director, Dr. J. Haynes. Specically in the school’s music program, all students from kindergarten2ndgrade are learning how to play stringed instruments like the violin, cello and base. The music instructor, Ms. Portia Lundy, works collectively with the other teachers at NMCS to integrate the arts in all academic content areas (Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies and Physical Education). Research from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has proven that children who study an art form are more likely to succeed academically. Especially if they have struggled previously, learning the arts and integrating them in core academic subjects, has proven to help increase students’ understanding of subject matter. Students enrolled during the 201314 school year have shown tremendous growth academically as measured by the Metropolitan Achievement Test, Edition 8. The school’s motto is “High expectations with no excuses.” NMCS places no academic boundaries on the possibilities of the learning potential of every child. Each teacher focuses on each child’s ability and learning style to teach the Florida Standards, text complexity, critical thinking and problem solving skills. Parents of children at NMCS, who have been previously enrolled at another school, have noticed their children’s desires to excel in school and explore their creative gifts, increased greatly. The team at New Millennium Charter School knows the importance of children being afforded every opportunity to explore the arts and experience academic success. NMCS is a tuition-free public charter school that is open to all students who reside in Madison County. “Success is in our DNA, I teach my students that every day,” says kindergarten teacher, Ms. Ashley McCoy.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.I'm really new at this,” said Christine Donaldson, the new city manager for the Town of Lee. After two months on the job, she was the guest speaker at the Madison Kiwanis Club, to talk about Lee and promote the town's business incubator project. The business incubator, located in the old Lee School building, is a project that has for the last several years allowed start-ups and entrepreneurs to create small businesses and get them off the ground, with office space at reduced rates and a little help with basics like networking and marketing. The complex is divided into two sections, one for small businesses, and one for community services. With a few years of operation behind it, the project has several successful businesses to its name. Fast Packing, a packaging company that began in a garage, was able to expand in the larger space available in the incubator and employ more people. A daycare center, the other business that got its start with the incubator, grew so fast it soon had a waiting list, and did well enough to purchase its own facility and move out. Expansion and being able to employ more people is the aim of businesses in the incubator. Currently, the incubator houses the packaging business, Tax Doctor, M.D., a financial and accounting service, Everything Pecan, a bakery-and-other-goodies business that fills the entire 9,298 square foot complex with wonderful aromas, and Wiffenpooh & Lulu Too, featuring handmade quilts, clothing, handbags, specialized embroidery, and arts and crafts made by local artisans. Recently, Wiffenpooh has expanded into another separate area for consignment items. There is at present one unit available for another entrepreneur in the incubator. “It's ready to go,” said Donaldson “If you know anybody, sent them to us. They just have to have a viable business idea.” www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, August 6, 2014 10A € Madison County CarrierAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY B u s i n e s s C a r d D i r e c t o r y Madison County WIC And Nutrition To Celebrate World Breastfeeding Week Thursday, August 7Story SubmittedOn Thursday, August 7, from 10 a.m. until noon, Madison County WIC will celebrate World Breastfeeding Week 2014 at the Madison County Health Department. WIC staff will provide fun prizes and refreshments along with information about nutrition and breastfeeding for WIC participants. This year's World Breastfeeding Week theme, Breastfeeding: A Winning Goal for Life, highlights the importance of providing support to breastfeeding families. This year's WABA World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) theme asserts the importance of increasing and sustaining the protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) countdown, and beyond. We call on all celebrants of WBW to Protect, Promote and Support Breastfeeding: it is a vital Life-Saving Goal! Infant feeding is one of the most important decisions that new families make. Evidence is clear that breastfeeding is the ideal way to feed an infant. Research shows that infants who are not exclusively breastfed for their first six months of life are more likely to develop a wide range of chronic and acute diseases, including ear infections, diarrheal diseases, asthma, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, obesity and respiratory illnesses. Mothers also benefit from breastfeeding with a decreased risk for breast and ovarian cancers. The WIC program plays a vital role in providing support to breastfeeding moms. The WIC program offers a breastfeeding friendly environment with support from trained breastfeeding peer counselors. World Breastfeeding Week is coordinated globally by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA). For more information, visit the WABA website at www.waba.org.my or contact Christell E.

Methodist Youth Ranch Now Open And Announcing Dedication/Open HouseStory SubmittedOn July 31, the Trustees of the Florida United Methodist Children's Home (FUMCH) enthusiastically announced the opening of the Madison Youth Ranch off Captain Buie Road in Pinetta. The Youth Ranch is an expansion campus of the rst Florida United Methodist Children's Home in Enterprise, and will allow FUMCH to serve more children who are placed in situations of nancial hardship, abuse and neglect, by providing a home where each of them can feel safe, and experience the love and care they need to succeed in life. The Madison Youth Ranch is located on more than 400 acres of donated land in Pinetta, and will be home to children from across the state. Referrals will come from local community based care agencies out of Gainesville, Tallahassee and Jacksonville, as well as from local churches and community groups, while others will be placed by their families due to economic hardships, behavioral issues or other family problems. "None of us like to think about terrible things like abuse or neglect happening to an innocent child," said Becky Dotson, CEO of FUMCH, "but it is a sad reality these days, and these dear children desperately need a Christian environment where they can come to a place of forgiveness and healing from these awful experiences and grow up into the healthy, productive men and women God created them to be." This rst phase, now opening, includes two residential homes for children, along with a recreation area and administrative ofces. The continued growth plan of the campus will be determined by the amount of funds raised to support the additional projects, which include more residential homes for children, a stable, campus life center, chapel, learning center, daycare, counseling ofces, houseparent retreats, dining hall, gym, vocational tech center, commissary, volunteer housing and more. In time, the goal is to eventually serve over 100 youth ages six to 17 in the residential program, with future inclusion of an independent living program and foster care services to the surrounding area. Each residential youth home will house up to 12 children, and have two sets of houseparents who have alternating shifts every other week. Each child will have their own bedroom and bathroom. The children will eat in their homes "family" style, share in chores, and will attend local public schools. Our staff will create a family-like atmosphere while providing therapeutic opportunities, including equine-assisted therapy, to resolve any issues the children may bring with them. In recent years, studies on equine-assisted therapy show that care and training of horses can have a powerful effect on a person. Experts now see the positive benet it has on children from traumatized backgrounds too everything from developing healthy relationships and a strong work ethic to overcoming fears, building teamwork and much more. "I am so excited about what the Madison Youth Ranch will mean to these children and youth," said Dr. Charles Lever, chairman of the Board of Trustees of FUMCH." The wholesome setting there in rural north Florida will allow boys and girls to explore things like canoeing, gardening, swimming, horsemanship and more all while developing spiritual growth, teamwork, communication skills and loads of self-condence." The length of stay for a resident varies from a few weeks to several years. Each child is an individual and the time in residence will be inuenced by the complexity of the problems they and their families face and the progress they can make in dealing with those problems. The best interests of the child are always of primary concern to the programs of the Home. The Florida United Methodist Children's Home is planning a special dedication ceremony, and opening celebration on Tuesday, September 23, 2014, from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. For more information, or to learn how you can help, please contact Mark Nelson, at (407) 222-1040 or email, Mark.Nelson@fumch.org.

www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, August 6, 2014 12A € Madison County Carrier CHURCH Walking With GodBy Jackie JohnsonIwent for a walk with the Lord the other day, We walked hand in hand with Him leading the way. I was close enough to hear every word He had to say, As we walked on our journey, I got distracted and looked away. I was still walking with God, but my eyes began to stray, Slowly one by one my fingers began to slide away. The object I was looking at became bigger as I began to lose my way, My attention was no longer on God as I began to disobey. I became selfish and stubborn and just wanted to play, “I” became the focus as further I did stray. I didn’t realize, that without God’s leading, “I” became easy prey, Satan used selfishness, sadness, and depression to lead me to utter dismay. I felt I was nothing, “a nobody” and after all I was just made out of clay, With these wrong thoughts tormenting me, how long could I possibly go on this way? Then, just when I thought all would be lost, I called out to God and began to pray, He sent His children to me, to retrieve this runaway. My road back to Him was quicker when I began to obey, I heard his voice calling to me and I wanted to hear all He had to say. This is what I learned; prayer, Bible study, and fellowship are needed day by day, Life is fragile, hold onto God’s hand, watch where you’re walking and don’t fail to pray.

BoxGreene Publishing, Inc.Bill Brown, a Madison resident, went on a mission trip to Lajas, Cuba, from June 6 to June 13, with the Baptist College of Florida in Graceville. The mission had eight students, including Brown, from the school, one professor and one representative of the Florida Baptist Convention. Brown is an online student at the Baptist College of Florida for Biblical Studies. The purpose of the trip was to help renovate a sanctuary at the Saint Isabel Baptist Church. The members on the mission team also helped with the church’s Vacation Bible School, held bible study and evangelism. Brown describes the local residents as very gracious, outgoing people who were receptive of them and their assistance in the renovation project. “It was an amazing experience to be a part of what God’s doing in Cuba,” said Brown. “Cuba is really going under an awakening. It’s amazing to be a small part of God’s doing.” The language barrier was not an issue for the group. Three members were able to speak Spanish and there was one translator. Brown said it was fairly easy to locate one of the four people to help translate. The message that Brown brought back with him was that everybody is a missionary in one way or another, either at home or in another country and people should embrace that mandate. Photo SubmittedThe members of the mission trip to Cuba are pictured left to right. In the back row: Andy, the translator; James Womble, Pastor Yanel and his daughter.

By Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc.Bryant Thigpen is no stranger when it comes to music or winning awards and says his musical talent came to him naturally. He credits God with his musical talents, but says music also runs in his family. He doesn’t remember exactly when he began playing piano, but says during his early years, there was a piano sitting by his bedroom door and everyday when he would walk by, he would “bang on it to where I would drive my parents crazy.” One day, he says, his father had enough and told him, “If you’re going to bang on it, I’m going to teach you how to play it.” Thigpen says his dad showed him two to three chords and he picked it up from there. Fast forward to today where Thigpen was awarded the 2014 Pianist of the Year, presented to him at the annual Gospel Post Convention and Fan Awards in Bell, Fl. He says each year, subscribers of the Gospel Post, a national gospel music publication, vote for their favorite bands, vocalists and musicians, and this year, the fans of gospel music voted him as their favorite pianist. When asked why he won this award Thigpen graciously responds, “That’s a great question! There are musicians in the gospel music industry and I am very humbled that the fans of this music thought enough to vote me as their favorite.” A diverse musician, Thigpen plays other musical instruments beside the piano; he also plays bass guitar, drums and the trumpet, not to mention his voice. He has won awards for Bass Guitarist of the Year three times, Baritone Vocalist of the Year as well as Mixed Group of the Year and Band of the Year. The rst group Thigpen played for was his cousin’s group, the McCormick Family of Lee, when he was only 11 years old. At the age of 13, Thigpen joined a different family group, the Reectsons of Trenton, where he was able to play with his dad, Tommy; his brother, Tommy Lee; his uncle, Dale; Dale’s son, Glen and Glen’s wife, Leslie. He began traveling with his family, performing 100 plus concerts every year but in 2008 decided to take a break from the road. After receiving many invitations to perform at local churches however, he took it as a sign that God had other plans and his current group, LifeSong was formed. It was during this time that Thigpen received what he calls “the opportunity of a lifetime.” He was asked by Naomi Sego to be the pianist for her group and says it was a dream come true for him. Sego, who he describes as “having so many hit songs that it would take all day to name” and a regular on the Gaither Homecoming Series, allowed Thigpen to travel across the U.S., performing 200 plus concerts in about 23 states and adds, “Just to be part of that legacy was incredible.” LifeSong came off the road with Sego in 2010, but continue to perform as a group today. The band is made up of Thigpen; Ethan Brooks, who has been with the group for nearly six years; and Jessica Ratliff, who will celebrate her third year with the ministry in August. LifeSong has recorded seven albums since its inception, with the most current albums being “Never Alone,” “Everyday Faith,” and “Yesterday and Today.” After Thigpen walked away from his “dream come true” of traveling and playing music professionally, it was then that he found his future. LifeSong was performing at a church in Lake Park, Ga. one evening when his future wife, Stephanie, came to the concert with her parents. He says he never would have guessed they would have started dating or that she would later become his wife. He feels God has blessed him with an amazing woman and now, a beautiful twomonth-old daughter, Brynlee. Besides playing for LifeSong and being a husband and new father, Thigpen serves as the youth pastor at Bible Deliverance Church in Madison, allowing him to minister to others in a different way. When speaking of all the ways he ministers to people, Thigpen states, “I love being able to use the talents He has given me for His glory.” If you would like to learn more about LifeSong, view their concert schedule and see their product information, visit www.lifesonggospel.com.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Brian Annett has two passions in life: one is buses (his family business, Annett Bus Lines, founded by his parents, Eric and Norma Jean Annett in 1976); the other is baseball. Born just a year earlier, in 1975, Brian Annett jokes that his father “had one year of me, and then he was ready for something else.” “I've been around buses since I was a little guy,” he told the Madison Rotary Club, where he is also a member. “I had diesel in my blood.” He is now president of Annett Bus Lines, and his brother, David, is the vice president. He speaks with genuine fondness of the family business, where his buses take people where they need to go in comfort that includes wi-fi and television, and takes pride in the motor coach industry in general, statistically noted as one of the safest (only school buses are ranked higher) and most efficient (averaging about 300 passenger miles per gallon) modes of transportation in the country. His father, a former school teacher, began as an independent bus operator in Sebring at a time when the bus industry was heavily regulated. In fact, the only two lines operating in Florida were Trailways and Greyhound, until the industry was deregulated in the 1980s. In 2008-09, Greyhound shut down routes going through Madison; afterward, Annett began negotiations with the county to open the Annett Bus Terminal near I-10 between Madison and Lee. The facility opened in February 2014 with a ribbon cutting ceremony, and now serves Annett's northern customer base linking Jacksonville and Ocala, and serves as a statewide refurbishing center for the fleet, doing both restoration and scheduled maintenance. The business, now operating more than 50 buses and employing about 100 people, has other centers in Ocala and Jacksonville and is still headquartered in Sebring, but Brian Annett and his family live in Madison. “And it's all because of baseball,” he said. All his life, he has loved baseball as much as buses. It was baseball that brought him to Madison, where he played for the NFCC baseball team. It was as a college student in Madison that he met the Bass family, who became lifelong friends, and it was at NFCC that he met his wife, Christi. When the small town of Sebring was no longer quite so small, it was Madison that came to mind when he sought that small town atmosphere he remembered from his own childhood, and when all the right circumstances came together, he knew he wanted to move his family to Madison and open the new bus center in Madison County. In addition to servicing the fleet, the Madison Center, which started out with six employees and now has 15, is working on local tour packages and a charter operation for businesses, church groups, community groups and school field trips. They also have bus centers in other states throughout the country, and work with other bus lines. No matter where anyone wants to travel, even if Annett doesn't have a bus going there, they can book the traveler on another bus that will get him to his destination. He loves being in Madison, the same kind of small town he grew up in, a town where he and Christi are firm supporters of the public school system their children Abi and Drew attend. “Sometimes, we have to knock ourselves to figure out how we came to be so blessed,” he told the audience. And it's all because of baseball. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, August 6, 2014 16A € Madison County CarrierSPORTS TheHealth Focusis Almost Hereand much more!Find out about:* Study Shows rhymes can inspire reasoningin third trimester Local gets Cutting Edge Heart Procedure Gov.

Fran Hunt Greene Publishing, Inc.With school beginning within the next couple of weeks, parents need to know which immunizations are required for their children, and at what age they are required. Community Health Nursing Director Donna L. Melgaard, RN of the Jefferson County Health Department provided the information. Before attending school in Florida (Kindergarten through grade 12), each child must provide a form DH 680, Florida Certification of Immunization, documenting the following immunizations: Public/Non-Public Schools, grades K-12: Four or five doses of diptheria-pertussis (DTaP) vaccine. Two or three does of Hepatitis B (Hep B) vaccine Three, four or five doses of polio vaccine (if the fourth dose if vaccine is administered prior to the fourth birthday, a fifth dose of polio vaccine is required). Two doses of measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine.

Seventh Grade Requirements: In addition to Kindergarten through 12thgrade requirements, students must have the following vaccinations: One dose of tetanusdiptheria-pertussis (Tdap). For further information, contact the Madison County Health Department at (850) 973-5000.Required School Immunizations Fran Hunt Greene Publishing, Inc.Backpacks have made it easy for Americans to carry everything except the kitchen sink without realizing that they could be throwing out their backs. In less than a couple of weeks, students will be racing to the school bus or scurrying to their classes with overstuffed backpacks slung over one shoulder. At the same time, more parents have opted for lugging a backpack rather than a briefcase to and from the office. While carrying a backpack may seem harmless enough, it can cause some painful back and neck problems for people who don’t pack or carry their backpacks properly, according to the Florida Chiropractic Association (FCA). “Back pain is pervasive in our society,” says FCA President Ken Dougherty. “Eighty percent of all Americans will suffer from it at one point in their lives and 50 percent of us will suffer from low-back pain this year alone. Much of this suffering is brought on by bad habits initiated during our younger years, such as carrying overweight backpacks to school.” A survey conducted by Lands’ End Direct Services found that more than 96 percent of children, ages 8-12, will carry a backpack to school this year. Of those, nearly one-third will carry their backpack improperly. Similarly, a study conducted in Italy found that the average child carries a backpack that would be the equivalent of a 39-pound backpack for a 176-pound man, or a 29-pound backpack for a 132-pound woman. The FCA offers the following tips to parents to help prevent the needless pain that backpack misuse can cause a student in your household. Make sure that your child’s backpack weighs no more than five to 10 percent of his or her body weight. If the backpack is heavier, it will cause your child to bend forward in an attempt to support the weight on his or her back, rather than on the shoulders, by the straps. The position of the backpack is important. The backpack should never hang more than four inches below the waistline. A backpack that hangs too low increases the weight on the shoulders, causing your child to lean forward when walking. A backpack with individualized compartments helps in positioning the contents more effectively. When packing the backpack, make sure that the pointy or bulky items are packed away from the area that will rest on your child’s back. An uneven surface rubbing on your child’s’ back could cause painful blisters. Keep in mind that bigger is not necessarily better. Parents should buy the best-designed backpack possible for their child. The more room there is in a backpack, the more your child will carry and the heavier the backpack will be. It is important that your child wear both shoulder straps. Lugging the backpack around by one shoulder strap can cause a disproportionate shift of weight to one side, leading to neck and muscle spasms as well as lower back pain. Padded straps are very important. Non-padded straps are very uncomfortable and can dig into your child’s shoulders. The shoulder straps should also be adjustable so the backpack can be fitted to your child’s body. Shoulder straps that are too loose can cause the backpack to dangle uncomfort ably and can cause spinal misalignment and pain. If the backpack is still too heavy, talk to your child’s teacher. It might be possible for your child to leave the heaviest books at school and bring home only lighter handout materials or workbooks. If your child continues to complain about back pain, consider an alternative to traditional backpacks such as packs on wheels. More parents and children are realizing the benefit of this safer way to transport books and other needed materials to and from school. Talk to your child about the proper use of backpacks and help him or her understand why this and other ergonomic issues are important. A child who is educated early in life on the importance of ergonomics can apply this knowledge later in life and will be happier and healthier as a result.Backpacks Can Cause Back Pain Fran Hunt Greene Publishing, Inc.Experts advise that the earlier a child could start being taught, the better. Few new parents gaze into their babies crib and imagine getting their newborn ready for school; that seems ages away. However, learning actually begins when a baby first opens their eyes. Research shows that children are born ready to learn (ages 0-3). The natural curiosity and trying to make sense of the world around them in infants show readiness for learning. Below are some ways to help parents get their children excited about learning, even as babies and toddlers. They include: Talk together. Copy  your baby’s sounds and encourage your baby to imitate you. Point out and name  the things around you. For instance, as you peel a potato, show it to your baby, say what it is, and let the baby touch it. Give your child  things or toys they can touch, bang and shake, so they learn how things work. Use math games in  your daily routines. Count stairs as you climb, or peas on a plate, etc. Give choices, based  on the child’s age. For instance, young children may be able to decide between two books to read before bed. Children love flash  cards and catch on very quickly. Use the animal cards and ask your child “which one is the…,” this game also works for fruit, vegetables, etc. Let your child be the  problem solver, figuring out the solution for himself. Read together. It’s  never too early to start. And when you read together, let your child hold the book and point to the pictures as you read, even if they hold the book upside down. Your children learn best through their everyday experiences with the people they love.Begin Teaching Children Early Its Time to Put on Your Dancing Shoes!Back to School” means it’s time to go back to dancing school as well.

Pinetta Elementary SchoolDear Madison County Students and Families: The 2014-15 school year begins with the rst day of school on Monday, August 18th. The District's teachers, administrators, and support personnel have been working throughout much of the summer in anticipation of an amazing year of teaching and learning at each of our schools. We will continue our efforts to raise student achievement levels through a rigorous curriculum and outstanding instruction. Our commitment is to provide a quality education to ALL students. Several exciting projects will be evident in the new school year. The $16.8 million renovation of Madison County High School is underway. Sixteen portable classroom buildings have been located just to the east of the high school complex to accommodate students during Phase I of the renovation project. The Madison County Virtual School is now available to students in grades six through twelve, allowing students to complete courses in online and blended learning environments. Madison County Central School is the recipient of a multimillion dollar school improvement grant focusing on ve essentials to a quality education: parent/community involvement, instructional support, leadership, collaboration, and ambitious instruction.

Sincerely, Doug Brown Superintendent of Schools August 18 Begins New School Year Dear Parents and Students, The teachers and staff of New Testament Christian School want to welcome you back for the 2014-2015 school year. With renewed hope and fresh vision we are excited to see what God has in store for our school this year. We have some new students this year and we are excited to welcome them into the arms of our loving school family. We have wonderful teachers who are dedicated to helping your children grow and develop into what God has created them to be. At NTCS it has always been our goal to provide the best education we can, in a safe Christ centered environment. This has proven to be a challenging task, with relentless pressures from outside to relax standards and compromise our values. This year we are committed to raising standards, and resisting the temptation to be anything but the school God has made us to be. We believe we can serve our students and parents best when we are true to who we are. We are a school with strong Christian beliefs and values. We believe the Bible is the solid rock that we are to build our life upon. For this reason we use curriculum which incorporates the Bible into the child's education. Bible lessons are taught in every grade level everyday, and the Bible is our guide for moral and social conduct. We believe exibility is vital to the success of a school like ours. Flexibility allows us change to best suit the educational needs of our students. This year we have restructured our classes. We have kept the traditional classroom setting for K-5 through 5thgrades. For grades six and up we have a combination of traditional instruction as well as individualized learning. This structure allows us to meet the varied needs of our students while ensuring quality education. We welcome new students K-5 through 5thgrade. If you think NTCS is the place for your child, please contact us at 973-3877. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have. We believe our values set us apart from many other schools in this community. They make us who we are, and have likely played a big role in your decision to enroll your child with us. We honor your decision to trust us during these formative years of your childs life. We do not take this responsibility lightly and will strive to not only give your children a quality education, but also a Christ centered atmosphere where they can grow spiritually as well. As Principal, I can't wait to get this new year started. I look forward to meeting each child and seeing the halls lled with excitement and laughter. I am looking forward to an excellent year, and can't wait to see you August 18thfor the rst day of school. Justin Riegsecker Principal New Testament ChristianBeth Moore Justin Riegsecker

Our student roster has seen some changes as well. We are elding inquiries and giving tours on a daily basis. As a result, we will be welcoming several new students at various grade levels. Please join me in welcoming our new families to our community. Thank you for entrusting your children to us! The 2014-2015 master schedule and academic calendar were carefully crafted to maximize instruction in all areas. We will continue to offer a strong academic core with multiple opportunities for enrichment. Additional enrichment classes for this year include Spanish in rst through eighth grades taught by Mrs. Erika Robinson, Music Technology Instruction for middle grade students with Mr. Jay Hicks, and Publisher (Yearbook) led by Mrs. Melinda Smith.

Sincerely, Janna Barrs Head of School“For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”Jeremiah 29:11Madison Academy Janna Barrs Jada Williams Welcome back Madison County High School students and parents, As Principal of Madison County High School, I can speak for all of us when I say we are excited about our new renovations. In two years, Madison County High School will look like a new, upgraded school with a fresh face. However, for the next couple of years, our campus will not look like the old high school. We will have portables on campus where some of our classes will be held. For the Class of 2015, they will always look back on their senior year and have stories to tell about when the high school was being rebuilt. During this renovation period, all schedules will run as normal. Classes will not be interrupted, just the setting of the classrooms. We are dedicated to having many choices for our students. We have many different classes and programs for every student. We have Honors Classes, Advanced Placement Classes, Virtual Classes, Career and Technical Programs, Dual Enrollment, sports, extra curricular programs, clubs and much more. Our ultimate goal is to prepare all students to go to college or to be able to pursue a career, whatever their wants and desires are. We have much to offer students at Madison County High School. We welcome you to come out and visit our school to see the progress in our renovations and discuss your child’s future dreams and desires with us. Our open house will be held on August 14 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. We will have a 9thgrade orientation starting at 5:30 p.m. in the gym for our new incoming students and parents on that same day. Sincerely, Ben F. Killingsworth Principal Madison County High School Madison County High School Ben Killingsworth

The 2014-15 school year is right around the corner. Lee Elementary School teachers and staff are excited about our students’ return. We believe that ALL students can learn and WILL learn if they are inspired to give their best effort in the process. To make that belief a reality, we pledge to work hard to provide students with ambitious and engaging instruction. We also need our parents’ help. We encourage parents to get involved by reading daily with their children, making sure their children complete their daily review work, and by volunteering at the school. All you have to do is ll out the school board volunteer form, and we will have lots of opportunities for you to be part of your child’s activities at school. Some important dates to jot down on your calendar are: August 12th– Open House August 18th– First Day of School September 1st– Labor Day Holiday Open House will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m. We are asking parents to drop their students off at their classrooms and then join me in the cafeteria for a short parent information meeting. While we review a few school policies and procedures, the teachers will have a few minutes to introduce themselves to their new students. After our short meeting, parents will then be able to visit with their children’s teachers and get specic class information. We look forward to seeing everyone there. Sincerely, Robin B.

Our school is committed to being in a constant state of improvement in our efforts to become all that God intends for us to be. We know that the future is bright and we know that, with God’s guidance and provision, our potential both as a school and as individuals is unlimited. As we make preparations to begin another school year, I want to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to you for entrusting your children into our care. This is a responsibility by which we are humbled and for which we are thankful.
