One of the truly great Floridians was Army General James A. Van Fleet (1892-1992). He served in the Army for more than four decades and always ran toward the sound of gunfire. In Mexico, during World War I, the invasion of Europe, in Greece, and finally Korea, he served with distinction and bravery. No matter his rank, Jim Van Fleet was a follow me commander. He might have been the finest combat leader in the Armys long history. He was born in New Jersey but his parents moved to the Sunshine State when he was an infant. He graduated from high school in Bartow and soon accepted an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point, graduating with the Class of 1915, otherwise known as the class on whom the stars fell. Roughly one-third of the class made general officer rank during World War II, the most notable being Dwight Eisenhower and Omar Bradley. But Van Fleet was no slouch either upon his retirement at the end of the Korean War, President Truman labeled him the greatest general in American history. He also played football at Army, going both ways as fullback and linebacker. In his senior season, the 1914 Black Knights were undefeated at 9-0, arguably the best team in the country. They had a wonderful defense, giving up only three touchdowns for the entire season. This was great training for an infantry officer and later, as a head coach. As a young infantry officer, he joined the 1916 expeditionary mission into Mexico at the command of Black Jack Pershing. In short order, he went to France and commanded a machine gun platoon during World War I where he was decorated for bravery the first time. In the early 1920s, Van Fleet was assigned to head the ROTC department at the University of Florida. His additional duty was head football coach for the 1923-24 Gators who finished 12-3-4 during his tenure. Thats a winning percentage of .737 and if your first name is Will, that looks pretty good. He earned extra money from the university for his coaching and invested this windfall in a 500 acre orange grove near his hometown of Bartow. That proved to be a pretty shrewd investment. The inter war years in the Army were difficult, but Van Fleet stuck with it, preparing for war and slowly rising through the ranks. Before Pearl Harbor, he had pinned on the rank of colonel and commanded the 8thInfantry Regiment of the 4thInfantry (Ivy) Division. This regiment spearheaded the D-Day assault on Utah Beach. Now commanding a group of five thousand soldiers for three years, he knew his regiment inside out. The 8thengaged the enemy, linked up with airborne troops and cut off the Germans in the critical port of Cherbourg. In short order, Van Fleet was promoted to general officer rank and successively commanded a division (90th) and III Corps, part of Pattons Third Army. Patton was notorious for relieving commanders when their unit failed to meet his expectations, but he knew he had a winner in General Van Fleet and gave him more responsibility at every turn. At the wars conclusion, President Truman sent General Van Fleet to Greece which was racked with civil war. The fear was that Communist elements would win the war and align with the Soviets. Van Fleet studied the problem intensely and advised the Greek government how to reverse their losses which proved to be a winning formula. In April 1951, Truman fired Douglas McArthur as the theater commander in Korea and elevated Matthew Ridgway in his place. Ridgway sent for Jim Van Fleet to command the Eighth Army. Over the next two years, Van Fleets leadership reversed the losses and drove the enemy north of the 38thParallel before the armistice. In 1953, after more than four decades of service in five wars, General Van Fleet retired to his Polk County ranch and a well-earned rest. His numerous combat decorations included three Distinguished Service Crosses (second only to the Medal of Honor); three Silver Stars; three Bronze Stars; and three Purple Hearts for wounds. He was the penultimate warrior, made for the battlefield. Today, there are many monuments to this great soldier in Greece, Korea and America. The III Corps headquarters at Fort Hood, Texas is named Van Fleet Hall as is the ROTC building in Gainesville. Also at UF, a major collection of Korean art work collected by General and Mrs. Van Fleet is donated to the Samuel Harn Museum of Art. Truly this great American served his nation and state with distinction. National SecurityIn the past month I have celebrated two birthdays with friends, one with a young lady turning 15, the other with a friend turning 50. Its always curious to me when I see the difference in how childrens birthdays are celebrated compared to most adults. A childs birthday (usually under the age of 16) is celebrated in a grand way. Adults celebrate each year a child becomes a year older, and in turn, children begin to anticipate the anniversary of their birth with a day full of gifts, cake, ice cream, their favorite food, and usually a party of some kind with friends and family. Many adults, on the other hand, tend to be low-key when their birthday rolls around. They may go out to dinner or have a special meal cooked for them, there may be a cake or other favorite dessert, but the celebration is usually mild when compared to a childs celebration. I believe some of this may do with our perception of what is normal when celebrating as adults. Imagine how some of our grown-up friends might respond to an adult birthday party that would feature cake and ice cream, colorful balloons and party games (pin the tail on the donkey comes to mind). Or maybe its the milestone birthdays that make us stop celebrating. When youre a child, you are always looking for those birthdays that allow you to do cool stuff like go to school, date, drive a car, be considered an adult, or whatever is important to becoming another year older. After we reach adulthood, the milestone birthdays are usually celebrated with black balloons and over the hill parties not something to look forward to and anticipate with excitement. Birthdays have always been celebrated around the world, and although there are differing accounts of how the birthday cake with candles began, the theories on the origin of this yearly celebration is something to consider. Many ancient cultures believed that smoke carried their prayers to the heavens. Todays tradition of making wishes before blowing out candles on birthday cakes may have started with this belief. The Germans, in the 1700s, celebrated birthdays with a single candle lit on a cake to symbolize the light of life. This is a celebration ritual I believe everyone, no matter the age, should adopt. Every year we are given on this earth is something worth celebrating, and that alone is reason enough for a party.www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, September 3, 2014 2 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.

When President Obama was questioned about countering the Islamic terrorists (ISIS) in Syria, his response was "We dont have a strategy yet", and this exemplies the status of our foreign policy. The Obama Administrations has deferred our foreign policy decisions to other countries who defer back to the U.S. It is a policy of procrastination based on hopes and dreams the world problems will fade away or be solved by foreign good guys in shining armor. The results of our diplomatic pullback, our military cuts, and decreased readiness have allowed the Russians to take the Crimea, North Korea to threaten South Korea, China to ex its military might in the Western Pacic, Iran to develop nuclear weapons, and Islamic terrorists to establish a territory in Iraq and Syria for launching attacks in the Middle East and the world. We cannot rely on other countries to take the lead in a dangerous world. As an example, since 2008 European governments have relinquished any leadership role by paying $165 million in ransom to Islamic terrorists for the release of European citizens. To deter and defeat aggression in the world, the U.S. has to provide global leadership in our foreign policy strategies and decisions. Donald A. Moskowitz Londonderry, NH Florida Job Numbers Up As Labor Day Passes Statement from Dominic M. Calabro, President and CEO of Florida TaxWatch, the independent, nonpartisan, nonprot taxpayer research institute and government watchdog: "Monday, Sept. 1st, Americans celebrated Labor Day, a time to thank our nation's workers for their role in building economic growth and prosperity. This year, more working Floridians have reason to celebrate. From July 2013 to July 2014, Florida saw an increase of 208,500 private, nonfarm jobs. The Florida TaxWatch July Economic Commentary showed the rst six months of 2014 a 30 percent increase in jobs over the same period from 2013. The highest job growth has occurred in construction, a result of Florida's recovering economy. Since 2010, Florida has been experiencing steady job growth, which indicates good news for Florida job seekers. After the post-recession record-setting job creation from the rst six months of 2014, we expect that this trend continues and that even more Floridians are employed and prospering on Labor Day 2015."

Even though you can hardly tell, summer is almost over. Kids have returned to school, football is back on TV, and hunting season has already been going on for a month now in south Florida. Finally, the time of year weve been waiting for is here. And although some of us still have to wait just a bit longer for our season to come in, most of us have already nished our preseason scouting, and weve hung our tree stands along well-traveled deer trails, next to a mature oak thatll soon begin dropping acorns. I dont know about yall, but I got a bad case a BUCK FEVER! Hunting season always comes in rst in Zone A in south Florida. Archery and crossbow seasons there started Aug. 2. But the boundary line between zones A and C has changed this year. The new line now begins at the Gulf of Mexico and runs northeast through Charlotte Harbor and up the Peace River until it intersects with State Road 70. The line then follows S.R. 70, running east until it meets U.S. 441 north of Lake Okeechobee. It then follows U.S. 441 south, where it proceeds around the eastern shore of Lake Okeechobee. The line then turns off U.S. 441 and onto S.R. 80 and runs just a few miles before turning east and following County Road 880, running just a few miles before joining back up with U.S. 98/441/S.R. 80/Southern Boulevard until it reaches the Atlantic Ocean. Zone B, which makes up part of the Green Swamp Basin, lies south of S.R. 50, west of U.S. 441 and the Kissimmee Waterway, north of S.R. 60 and east of the Gulf of Mexico. This year, archery and crossbow seasons there start Oct. 18. The line that divides zones C and D begins at U.S. 27 at the Florida-Georgia state line (in Gadsden County) and runs south on U.S. 27 until it meets S.R. 61 in Tallahassee. From there, it follows S.R. 61, running south until it hits U.S. 319. There, the line follows U.S. 319, continuing south to U.S. 98. It then runs east along U.S. 98 until it gets to the Wakulla River, where the river becomes the line, heading south until it meets the St. Marks River and continues going downriver until it meets the Gulf. If you hunt west of that line, youre in Zone D, where archery and crossbow seasons begin on Oct. 25 this year. In Zone C (east of that line), archery and crossbow seasons open Sept. 13. To hunt during archery season, youll need a Florida hunting license and an archery permit. During crossbow season, youll need a hunting license and crossbow permit. If youre a Florida resident, an annual hunting license will cost $17. Nonresidents have the choice of paying $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. Archery and crossbow permits cost just $5 each, and all deer hunters must have the $5 deer permit. Anyone planning on hunting one of Floridas many WMAs must purchase a management area permit for $26.50. And dont forget to pick up the WMA brochure for the area you wish to hunt, because hunting season dates on many of the areas often differ from zonal dates. You can pick up a copy of WMA brochures at your local tax collectors ofce or read them at MyFWC.com/Hunting.During archery season and that part of crossbow season that runs concurrent with archery, you can take both legal bucks and antlerless deer (except for spotted fawns). But after archery ends, during the remaining portion of the crossbow season, only legal bucks may be taken. The daily bag limit on deer is two. Bag limits for deer on WMAs can differ, so check the specics of the area before you hunt. You can hunt wild hogs on private lands yearround with no bag or size limits. On most WMAs, theres also no bag or size limits, and hogs are legal to take during most hunting seasons except spring turkey. On a few WMAs though, bag and size limits do apply, so be sure to check the brochure for the specic area to be certain. Its also legal to shoot gobblers and bearded turkeys during archery and crossbow seasons, assuming you have a turkey permit ($10 for residents, $125 for nonresidents). You can now take two turkeys in a single day on private lands, but the two-bird fall-season limit still applies, and the daily bag limit for turkeys is still one on WMAs. Its against the law to hunt turkeys in Holmes County in the fall, and its illegal to shoot them while theyre on the roost, over bait, when youre within 100 yards of a game-feeding station when bait is present or with the aid of recorded turkey calls. The archery permit allows you to bow hunt during the archery season. On private property, a crossbow permit enables you to hunt during the crossbow season with either a crossbow or a bow. On WMAs, only hunters with a disabled crossbow permit are allowed to use crossbows during archery season. All bows must have a minimum draw weight of 35 pounds, and hand-held releases are permitted. For hunting deer, hogs and turkeys, broadheads must have at least two sharpened edges with a minimum width of 7/8inch.

This scripture is what inspires Captain Mark Joost to give up his time, finances and energy in order to serve children in Madison County. He says the intent of his Youth Adventure Camp program was created with the intent to give kids a vision and hope for their future while teaching them some basic life skills. In the 22 out of 25 years Joost worked as an investigator and Chief at the Madison County Sheriffs Office, he witnessed kids as victims of violent crimes and had come to look at them as collateral damage, which he feels is due to the break down of todays families. When his job led him to two nine-year-old children from Tallahassee who committed suicide, he decided it was time for him to stop witnessing and become involved and began formulating a way he could make a positive impact in childrens lives. After soliciting the help of Sheriff Ben Stewart, Joost moved forward with his vision, funding his youth camp with sales from the concealed carry classes and personal defense training he teaches on the first of every month. The Youth Adventure Camp is now in its third year. This summer, Joost had the opportunity to work with around 30 boys and girls from the community. Joost plans structure and discipline in his faith-based teachings and all days include devotionals. Activities may vary depending on what may be offered each summer, but some of the programs this year included defensive tactics, rope climbing, gun safety, library programs and learning how to process fingerprints at the Sheriffs Office. Not all children who attend the camp are victims. Some of the kids just needed something positive to do for the summer and Joosts camp met those requirements. Joost is thankful for those in the community who have helped the camp become a success and intends to continue his vision next year.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.For all those senior music lovers out there and those who love just getting together with friends to enjoy a meal while they listen to music, this is a reminder that the 55 Plus Club is about to start up again after the summer vacation months. As usual, they want to start things off in a big way for their September meeting, scheduled for Sept. 10 at noon. For this special kickoff meeting, Madison's very own talented musician, Jay Hicks, will be providing the program entertainment. Coming from a musical family, Hicks is a music teacher at Madison Academy and a guitar instructor at NFCC. He is also editor and writer for the guitar publication FJH Music Publishers and the cowriter and developer for middle and high school music courses for Florida Virtual School. Aside from teaching and writing about music, he stays busy as a performer as well, playing jazz, pop, country and gospel arrangements at venues here and as far away as Atlanta. Come on out to the 55 Plus Club Sept. 10 for a chance to hear him play. 55 Plus is a non-denominational club that is free and open to all Madison County seniors 55 and older, of any faith. As an outreach ministry of United Methodist Cooperative Ministries, it brings people together once a month to enjoy a time of fellowship and informative or entertaining programs, as well as a free lunch served by one of the eight United Methodist churches that are a part of the Cooperative Ministries. The club meets on the second Wednesday of each month, at high noon at the UMCM Center on Colin Kelly Highway. It's a white block building about ve miles north of town, at the corner of Colin Kelly and NE Dill Ave., near Hanson. Anyone 55 and older is welcome. There are no fees, dues, registrations or even reservations necessary. Just show up, bring your appetite and bring a few friends as well. Be prepared to have a great time and enjoy some good food, good fellowship, and a great program, whether it's entertainment or an informative presentation on topics of interest to seniors. For directions, or more information on the 55 Plus Club, contact UMCM Coordinator Deborah Brown at (850) 929-4938. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, September 3, 2014 8 Madison County Carrier AROUNDMADISONCOUNTY M e e t Y o u r L o c a l F i r e f i g h t e r Title: Lee Community Fire Department Firefighter Hometown: Plant City, Fl.

Photo By Lynette Norris, December 2013Guitarist Jay Hicks performs at a Madison Rotary Club function in December 2013. Ted Ensminger Addresses Ma dis o n L i o ns ClubBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc. During the last four months of conducting tours of the new hospital, Ted Ensminger reckons that he and two other people who acted as tour guides brought nearly 1000 visitors through the facility as it neared completion. At the Aug. 5 Lions Club meeting, Ensminger spoke to the club members about the new hospital, its recent Grand Opening celebration and what it would mean to the community of Madison. "It's a miracle," he said of the new hospital, one that was several years in the making, and the Grand Opening was a day that several hospital employees had thought they would never see. But from here on out, it wasn't going to be "business as usual," he told the club members. With the new health care services that would be available to the community, he hoped that having the new hospital would go a long way toward signicant improvement in the quality of life for many, with its focus on "faith, family and history." As one example, he spoke briey about the hospital's relationship with the Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic, which would soon be rotating about six specialists through the Madison facility, and his expectation that within a year, TOC would be doing hip and knee replacement surgeries here, rather than in Tallahassee. Patients in the community would no longer have to travel 60 miles or more to have the procedures, and they would be closer to their friends and families who could spend more time with them, in the larger rooms designed to accommodate more visitors. Studies have shown that patients who have more contact with loved ones heal faster, and that is part of the hospital's holistic approach to health care treating the whole patient, including their spiritual and emotional well-being, along with their physical ailments. Soon, other surgeries will be available as well. Surgeons at other places have asked for a chance to perform occasional surgeries in the new hospital, a brandnew, state-of-the-art facility. Another facet of the new healthcare offerings is the stroke/heart attack program. State-of-the-art digital equipment that will allow specialists in Tallahassee or other distant facilities to see both patient and medical data streaming in real time, will potentially cut the initial stroke/heart attack diagnosis time in half and allow the appropriate treatment to begin that much sooner. It will not only save lives, it will also improve chances of a fuller recovery and higher quality of life. "We've made great strides in health care in the last ve years," he said. Madison County used to be ranked dead last in health care in the state of Florida: 67thplace out of 67 counties. Then it began slowly but surely moving up in the rankings, to 51stplace last year. "And that was before the new hospital," he said. It was the county health department, various clinics and other entities working together to educate people about wellness and taking care of their health needs. He believes he will see Madison's high rate of colon cancer and other maladies go down a little as the county health care system, along with the new hospital, gets better at preventative care. In two years or so, Ensminger expects Madison's ranking will rise into the 30s. The new hospital also pays tribute to Madison's history. Several historic black-andwhite photographs grace the walls, and one wall of the lobby incorporates several bricks from the old Madison High School that were unearthed when the hospital's foundation was laid. Old plaques and signs that paid tribute to people who gave generous donations to the old hospital in years past are displayed in the new hospital, along with artifacts from older health care institutions that predated the 1956 facility. On another wall is a sculpture of a "Tree of Life" whose leaves contain the names of donors whose gifts continue to bring quality health care to the community. "What we invest in this hospital, we'll get back for decades to come," said Ensminger. "If we have a very good health care system, everyone benets." Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Lynette Norris, August 5, 2014From 1927 until 1980, the old Madison High School occupied the site where the new Madison County Memorial Hospital now sits. These bricks were excavated when the foundation was built, and are now part of this wall. Above the bricks are old photos from the high school during the 40s and 50s.Greene Publishing, Inc.

By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Police Chief Gary Calhoun told the Madison Kiwanis Club that he had spent a lot of time chasing the bad guys after they've committed a crime, but he would much rather prevent crime before it happens and make sure people were safe. Calhoun has been Madison's Chief of Police since 2010, but he has been a trained and certied crime prevention practitioner since 1996, and part of his job since then has been educating people about personal safety how they can protect themselves, stay safe and cut down on their chance of being victimized. Be aware and pay attention, he said. Especially if you're somewhere new. Most of us can spot someone who is new to the area, because of that dazed, confused look on their faces as they look around them in bewilderment and wander slowly along. Criminals can pick up on that, too. To counter that, walk with a purpose to your stride and try not to look confused, even if you are. Stay aware of your surroundings and people nearby. Calhoun has spoken with many victims who have said things like I had a feeling about that guy or something they saw. The take-away from that is to trust those feelings when something doesn't look or feel right. Call the police rather than risk being victimized. People have a hard time calling the police in situations like that, he said. They're afraid they'll take us away from something important, or they're afraid we'll come sliding in sideways with lights ashing and sirens blasting, and throw the person up against the wall because 'somebody called us and told us you looked suspicious.' That is not the the case, and people needn't worry. The department prioritizes calls and won't pull ofcers off a burglary somewhere else. What they will do is get as much information from the caller as possible to gauge what their response should be. If the perp is actually beating someone up, they'll rush in and grab him. If he's just wandering down the street looking into car windows, they might stop and talk to him. If he's just loitering on a street corner looking creepy, they might drive by and wave at him. Even if he's up to no good, he'll know the police know he's there and they are watching him. At home, keep your doors locked. he said. It would seem at rst that this would go without saying, but anywhere from 40 to 60 percent of all residential burglaries are committed by thieves getting in through an unlocked door. This applies even when you're at home. Lock the door, and don't open it to anyone you don't know, he told the audience. While working as a plain-clothes ofcer, he was astonished that people would let him into their homes without questioning him when he knocked on their doors. Only one elderly lady ever asked him through the locked door who he was, then she asked to see his badge and ID through the window before she let him in, while apologizing profusely. His response to her was that she was the only one he had ever met who did it correctly, asking for a name and credentials rst, and THEN unlocking the door to let him in. At the mall or shopping center, even if it's broad daylight outside, park close to the entrance if possible, or look around and note where the lights are, and park there. It might be dark by the the time you leave. If you don't feel safe walking out to your car, ask a store employee to walk out with you, or a mall security employee. If none is available, then call the police. I would rather drive by and watch as you get into your car a dozen times, than answer an emergency call where something happened to you, he said. Finally, there is the matter of calling in something in your neighborhood that just doesn't look right. He recounts a string of burglaries where the thief would simply drive up into someone's garage, close the garage door and then go to town loading up the back of his pickup truck with all sorts of household goodies, it was an orange pickup truck at that, one of the few leads the police had. Later, when they caught the crook, another citizen told him she had noticed that orange truck in her neighborhood one day, some time earlier, and thought it was kind of suspicious. If only she had called us, he said. We would have swarmed over there as soon as she said 'orange pickup', that was probably our guy. Everybody has cell phones now, and that is a huge asset for us, he said, urging people to stay alert while driving, keep their car doors locked and take note of things like people hanging around street corners. Technology works for them in other ways as well, like the key fobs that unlock their police cars for them while still in their pockets. When they are rushing for their cars to answer an emergency, they don't have to fumble in their pockets for keys to unlock the door. It made for a fun demonstration for some school children once, when he asked their teacher to try to open a locked car door. Then he opened the car door with no trouble, while the children watch in jaw-dropping amazement. How did you do that? they all wanted to know. That's a special police car, he told them. It knew that guy wasn't a police ofcer. Another safety tip he offered was, when pulling up to a stop light, don't pull up even to the guy in the next lane, hang back a little. There is that human tendency to glance over at the next driver. We all do it, but crooks do it too. They could be scoping out opportunities, like looking for a woman traveling alone. In fact, most robberies are crime of opportunity. Bad guys aren't as bright as we give them credit for, he said, relating how the typical crook just looks for a house without a lot of cars around it and then knocks on the door to see if anyone's home. If somebody answers, they usually say they're looking for, uhm 'Billy' (or ll-in-the-blank). If that ever happens to you, call 911 and report it, he said, because the crook will simply go to the next house and the next until he nds an unoccupied house he can break into. That's all the forethought and planning most crooks put into any robbery. Another entry in the dumb crooks category was the burglar ring with one guy who was supposedly the brains of the whole operation, because he allegedly knew how to take out the alarm systems at houses before they broke in. But the reason the ring was caught was that the genius had instead carefully cut every single wire in the homeowner's lawn irrigation timing box with the RAINBIRD label in plain view. That doesn't mean crooks can't be dangerous, but even then, the vast majority aren't Brain Trust Central. There was another case where some criminal had followed a young woman home and drove up behind her in her driveway blocking her in. However, with a crucial lack of foresight, they had failed to take into account that they were driving a Hyundai, and she was driving a Hummer. Guess who won that round? As soon as the young woman realized she was in danger, she slammed the Hummer into reverse and backed out over the Hundai. With their transportation out of commissions, the creeps were soon caught. Although he sometime misses having the resources he had in Maitland, a suburb just outside Orlando, he likes being in a small town where everyone knows everyone else, and the police and sheriff's departments can work together without the usual turf wars except when it comes to the paperwork, he adds drily. Madison and its people suit him just ne, and he would like everyone to think seriously about their personal safety, stay alert to their surroundings and don't be afraid to call, when they feel threatened or don't think something is quite right.

Rykard, LPN, HSPSFlorida Department of Health-MadisonTobacco use is the number one cause of preventable death in the United States, and studies suggest that almost 90 percent of tobacco smokers began smoking before the age of 18. The Madison County Memorial Hospital recently partnered with the Florida Department of Healths Tobacco Free Florida program, Big Bend AHEC and Florida Department of Health Madison, to aid in the adoption of a 100 percent Tobacco Free Campus Policy. The purpose of this decision is to ensure the health and safety of the hospitals patients, visitors and staff. To promote good health and serve as good health role models to those whom the hospital serves. Florida Department of Healths Tobacco Free Florida program and Florida Department of Health Madison, are encouraging businesses across Madison to help their employees quit tobacco. Florida Department of Health Madison offers employers free assistance in developing tobacco cessation programs, whether its through the companys health insurance provider or the states free cessation services. Nearly 70 percent of smokers want to quit, and getting help through their employers can increase their chance of success while simultaneously beneting the business. We would like to thank the Madison County Memorial Hospital for being a leader in business by adopting tobacco free policies and promoting changes that will help to create a healthier community. Congratulations on your wonderful new facility and the achievement of becoming a Tobacco Free Campus!

By Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc.The Madison Church of God will have Bishop Siran Stacy, former NFL player, at their 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. services on Sunday, Sept. 7. According to his website,www.siranstacy.org, Siran Stacy was born in the small town of Geneva, Ala., on August 6, 1968. His parents, Ellis and Marie Stacy, raised him and from a young age his dream was to play football at the University of Alabama under legendary coach Paul Bear Bryant. After graduating high school, he attended Coffeyville Junior College in Kansas before he earned a scholarship to the University of Alabama. He was drafted in the second round of the NFL draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. He later played for the Scottish Claymores in the World Football League. In 2000, he retired from football to join corporate America. In 2007, Stacys life changed forever when a drunk driver struck his familys van, one mile from their home. Stacy, his wife Ellen, 35, his son Bronson, 10, his daughters: Lequisa, 18, Sydney, nine-years-old, Shelly, four-years-old, and Ellie Ann-Marie, two-yearsold, were all in the vehicle that night. Stacy and Shelly were the only survivors. A year later, he was asked to give his testimony to a small church in Alabama and soon started his own ministry. Stacys message is centered upon the resurrection power and redeeming blood of Jesus Christ, and is aimed towards making an impact on the broken hearted, the suffering teenager and he has a passion for men and their role as leaders and mentors in the family. Pastor Justin Justus invites everyone to come out and hear Bishop Stacy speak.

Hanson United Methodist Church Offers An Alternative On HalloweenBy Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc.Hanson United Methodist Church will host a Halloween Party on Friday, Oct. 31, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the church for anyone who would like to attend. The children will be able to roast hot dogs on an open re, have a hayride, and there will be a costume judging for the children who made their own costume. Instead of trickor-treat, the church does trunk-or-treat, where the members of the church line up their cars, with the candy in the trunk and one of the children in the group must recite a Bible verse to receive the candy. For more information, call (850) 929-3751.
By Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc. The Church of Christ has purchased the old Presbyterian Church in Madison. The congregation of the Church of Christ grew until there was no longer enough room for everyone in their current church. The current state of the old Presbyterian Church requires some work. The Church of Christ congregation is still meeting in their building until they can fix up the Fellowship Hall, where they will be meeting until the chapel is finished. There are currently no pews in the chapel and the Fellowship Hall needs tables and chairs. They have Bible Study at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Sunday morning service begins at 11 a.m. and the evening service is at 6 p.m. Wednesdays Bible Study begins at 7 p.m. According to Jim Stanley, the congregation is working on the weekend to help fix the church and we are just tickled to death, that they have the church and can have room for a Sunday school. The old Presbyterian Church is located at 199 NE Range Avenue in Madison. The pastor of the Church of Christ is Ray Joyner.

Pulled Pork Dinner Sold Out To Benefit The Handfield 5By Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc.Pinegrove Baptist Church, Fellowship Baptist Church and Meghans School of Higher Learning worked together to hold a pulled pork sandwich dinner to raise money for the Handfield family, of Madison, on Friday, Aug. 29. The family: Crysti, her husband, Clint and their three sons: Cooper, Read and Grady will be moving to Ethiopia to serve as English teachers. They call themselves the Handfield 5 and you may have seen their mint green tshirts around Madison, saying Ten Feet To Africa. The move will take place in January of 2015. The proceeds of this will go towards the Handfields having a vehicle when they arrive in Ethiopia. The pulled pork dinner with chips, a cookie and water went on sale at 9 a.m. and they were sold out by 12:30 p.m. According to Pinegrove Baptist Church Pastor Timmy Dyke, they cooked 150 pounds of pork for the lunch.

www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, September 3, 2014Madison County Carrier 13CHURCH Church Spotlight: First Baptist Church Of MadisonBy Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.Alexander Mosley and R. J. Mayes formed the First Baptist Church of Madison in 1835, but opened the churchs doors with a different name, Hickstown Baptist. The church was named Hickstown after a Mikasuki Indian chief, known by his English name of John Hicks, who befriended the settlers and lived in the area between Madison and Greenville. In the early 1850s the name of the church changed to The Madison Baptist Church and changed again in 1922, where it received its nal name of First Baptist Church of Madison. In 1840 the church received its rst formal building, erected at its present site at 134 SW Meeting Avenue, off Hwy. 90. In 1898, a new building replaced the 1840 building. Instead of following traditional church buildings, the church was Gothic and Queen Anne style with rounded corners, a bell tower and many stained glass windows. In 1956 this building was moved to the corner of West Pinckney Street and Orange Avenue, and is used today for Christmas candlelight services, weddings and other special events. In 1978, this Sanctuary was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. During the same year the 1898 church was moved (1956), the cornerstone was laid for a new brick building, which is the same church congregates gather today.Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Rose Klein, August 29, 2014The First Baptist Church of Madison is a church rich in history. Over time and growth, the church has seen over 40 pastors and the current Sanctuary, located at 134 SW Meeting Avenue, is the third built. Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Rose Klein, August 29, 2014The 1898 Sanctuary, located at the corner of West Pinckney Street and Orange Avenue, was the second formal church building for First Baptist. It was moved from its original location to make way for a larger church, but is still used for Christmas Candlelight Services, weddings and other special events.Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Rose Klein, August 29, 2014First Baptist Church was originally named Hickstown, after Indian chief John Hicks. Legend has it that Indians on the warpath approached the church and seeing the settlers kneeling in prayer through windows, crept away in respectful silence. This sign dedicated to John Hicks and Hickstown, was erected between Greenville and Madison, where Hicks lived.
By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Demetrius Rice's rst day at James Madison Preparatory High School was July 1, and he feels that it is a perfect t for him, as the principal and STEM coordinator for the school. Before that, he was an academy coordinator for career and academy courses at the high school level, where he also taught CTE classes. However, those classes were electives, not the main focus of the school, and it was sometimes hard to get the administration to see their importance. What brought him to James Madison Prep School was what he read in their mission statement about providing rigorous STEMbased education that would produce such graduates who would be ready for the workplace or for even more rigorous, STEMbased college coursework. "It matched exactly what I'd been trying to do," he said. He has always tried to stress the importance of producing graduates who were prepared to take on a digital/technical workplace that didn't exist a generation ago, and he is particularly pleased about the project-based learning at James Madison Prep that will not only teach the students what they need to know as far as technology, but will also help them develop the kind of 'soft skills' they need to succeed in the real world: communication, working in a group, balancing more than one thing, deciding what information was relevant and what wasn't for their purposes, and deciding who would take on different parts of the project. Everybody can't do the same thing. Now he sees this working on a schoolwide level. "I love it. I'm excited," he says of his rst couple of weeks into the fall semester. Here, he can try new, innovative teaching projects that would have been problematic in a larger school. "The students are phenomenal," he said. "From day one, they've been willing to try and accept any challenges I've put in front of them...here are the graduates who will represent the shift toward technology. This is the digital generation." The project he has them working on this year involves designing homepages for local businesses. This semester they are learning code writing that will allow them to design web pages. Next semester, they will go out and nd local businesses who don't have websites, interview them about their business, their products, their services, their inventory, their contact information, and use all of that to design a landing page (or "home page") for a website. Next semester, those businesses who don't have a website will be the ones students at JMPHS will be looking for. "They have to be motivated to be a part of it," he said. It's a real world example of how to use information, divide up into a team, nd local businesses without a web page and develop a landing site, or home page for them. It looks like next year will certainly be busy. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, September 3, 2014 14 Madison County CarrierSCHOOL Apply in Person at: Annett Bus Lines 231 SE Cabot Trail A n n e t t B u s L i n e s Now Hiring in Madison, Florida FULL and PART Time Drivers Needed Sports Fan?

Madison Academy Welcomes A New Teacher Photo SubmittedKristy Green is holding her son, Tyler, while her husband, T.J. Green, holds their son Caedmon.By Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc.Kristy Green is the new 2ndgrade teacher at Madison Academy. This is her rst job as a full-time teacher. She teaches the children math, reading and science. Within the reading subject, she teaches spelling, vocabulary, language arts and phonics. She has worked as a substitute teacher before. She has been married to T.J. Green, the youth pastor at Fellowship Baptist Church, for over 10 years. They have two boys, Caedmon, who is in Pre-K and Tyler, who is in 3K. When she entered college as a freshman, she majored in biology but when she began volunteering with the children at her church she realized that she had a longing to work with kids and graduated from Lee University in Cleveland, Tenn. in 2008 with a teaching degree. Her favorite part about teaching at Madison Academy is that everyday they open with prayer and devotionals. Her favorite part about teaching, in general, is seeing the children have the ah ha' moments, where the lesson clicks with them and building the relationships with the children and their parents.
