Carolyn Binder is someone I’ve wanted to meet ever since I moved to Florida. I found her through her gardening blog, Cowlick Cottage, and immediately felt a kinship because our interests were so similar. She was practicing organic gardening, selling garlic from her small home plot and writing about these adventures through her blog; and joy of joys, we lived in the same town. That was in 2010. My intentions of meeting Carolyn got lost in the shufe of life, but just a few weeks ago, my desire to meet her came to fruition. Carolyn began blogging as a way to interest her three daughters in gardening, and while doing so, became friends with other online gardeners. She began writing for other garden blogs and according to her, “This opened up a world I never expected.” She was invited, along with a handful of select others, to attend noted gardener, award-winning designer, lifestyle expert and TV host P. Allen Smith’s Moss Mountain Farm to discuss industry trends and the impact of social media on gardening and other related businesses. Carolyn also began writing for additional print publications and has recipes and photos included in a newly released book, “Plants with Benets.” During the years, while working on her blog, Carolyn has become an accomplished photographer and cook, saying her interest in cooking has grown along with her garden. Carolyn gains inspiration for cooking according to what’s in season and the freshness of her ingredients available to her. “Gardening has totally changed my cooking,” says Carolyn. When asked for a recipe, one using sweet potatoes fresh from her garden came to her mind. She describes her cooking as simple and states that good ingredients keeps good food simple, such as her sweet potato gratin that uses only three ingredients. When asked what she sees for herself in the future, Carolyn says she is content for the time being. She works her full-time job in Tallahassee during the week, and spends her weekends immersing herself in her hobbies of gardening, cooking, writing, blogging, photography, family and friends. Did this self-described “life-long gardener and foodie with a sense of humor and passion for sharing her life experiences” entice her daughters to start their own gardens? “Well, not really,” says Carolyn. Daughter Heather works as a hair stylist in an upscale salon in Atlanta, Natalie has her Masters degree from FSU and works at the Monticello library where she is engrossed in her work but does blog like her mother (except on political and social issues), and Magdalen does garden, but is a little busy right now with a newborn and eightyear-old. Even if she hasn’t inspired her three girls to garden, yet, the rest of us who love to garden, blog and cook can look and learn from her experiences. I’m sharing her sweet potato recipe with you, that I have already tried, and think is wonderful, and I only added one little tweak. If you get the chance, browse her websitecowlickcottagefarm.comwhere you will nd lots of great pictures, recipes and garden information. Let her know what you think of her recipe, she would love to hear from you.Sweet Potato GratinAbout 2 lbs. sweet potatoes, sliced very thin 2 c. whipping cream 1 to 3 tbsp. diced Chiplotle peppers with sauce (found in the International aisle) tsp. salt Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine whipping cream with Chiplotle and taste for heat (I used three tablespoons, but it was pretty spicy). In an 8x8-inch greased baking dish, cover bottom with a layer of sweet potato slices, sprinkle with some of the salt then cover with some of the cream mixture. Repeat until all ingredients are gone. Bake about 1 to 1 hours or until desired texture. Eat with abandon.Irecently saw an information segment on a cable news channel about preparing to survive a disaster, manmade or natural. The expert assembled a backpack with such things as preserved food, drinking water, first aid items, signaling devices, etc. He specifically addressed people who live in urban areas and might be affected by an event like the 9/11 attacks. That got me to thinking back to my Air Force flying days where we packed survival gear and practiced emergency procedures. Military aviators always have to prepare for leaving their jet under emergency conditions and surviving, on land or water, in jungles, desert or arctic conditions. In small aircraft like fighters, the equipment must be small and survi vable under ejection conditions. An ejection seat is also the ‘working seat’ for a fighter pilot. The pilot sits on top of a padded surface and a clam-shell container which contains an emergency kit with a variety of items including a one-man life raft. After ejection and separation from the seat, the pilot will be swinging underneath a parachute and is expected to reach down with his right hand and deploy the seat kit. That action opens the clamshell and deploys the life raft on a 25 foot lanyard. In training, we were always advised to deploy the seat kit regardless of conditions to minimize the potential for injury upon landing. Under combat conditions, we also wore a vest underneath our parachute harness. In that vest were many pockets containing a variety of survival items. My flight commander Charlie Cox who had previous war experience had a personal survival kit which he assembled and carried in his Gsuit pocket. We also carried a personal firearm (in my day, it was a .38 police special) as well as a hunting knife. The most important survival item is a radio so a downed pilot can call for rescue. Forty years ago, we used ARC-64 personal survival radios. We carried two of these ‘bricks’ in our vest. There was also an emergency locator beacon in the seat kit which would activate a homing signal upon ejection. On more than one occasion, we actually spoke with pilots using their ARC-64 who had ejected over enemy territory while they were coming down under their parachute. Those conversations were generally terse because, in all likelihood, they would soon be captured. Every six months, we would go through life support training and practice our ejection procedures as well as an inventory of our survival gear. This training served to keep the subject fresh and current because under emergency conditions, there isn’t time to think and recall. Mere tenths of a second can mean the difference between life and death when your sick jet is plummeting toward the ground at high speed. Additionally, we would go through survival training periodically. I went through courses for SERE (survival, escape, resistance and evasion); water survival; jungle survival; and the altitude chamber. Generally, we had to update this training with a refresher course every three years while we remained on active flight status. I also did something a little unusual by attending the Army’s Basic Paratrooper Course at Fort Benning in the summer of 1968. With that training, I completed five parachute jumps. Every June, our weather forecasters and emergency management professionals talk to us about the beginning of the sixmonth Atlantic hurricane season and the importance of being prepared. One of their topics is the ability for each of us to operate without any basic services like electricity. In their own way, they’re talking about a survival inventory just like we had in the Air Force. We haven’t had a significant hurricane season since 2005, so it is easy to become complacent. Additionally, the population of Florida increases every year faster than the national average; millions of Floridians have never experienced a hurricane and are generally clueless about how to prepare and react. Two decades ago, I was in a situation where I had a weekly commute of a hundred miles across California’s rugged Mojave Desert. I packed survival equipment in my trunk in the case I was ever stuck along those remote roads by an accident or breakdown. I never had to use it in two years of commuting, but I was ready if need be, or as learned in Boy Scouts, “be prepared.” We didn’t have cellular phones back then which is everyone’s first line of defense in an emergency, but don’t forget, many remote places are not covered with cell phone towers and service will likely be disrupted in an emergency. That’s what the people in New York and Washington found out in the aftermath of 9/11.

The media has been negative towards Rick Scott since he ran for Governor the rst time, they have ignored the awed Charlie Crist because he’s a liberal as they are. Let’s look at one example that happened during Crist’s administration. Charlie Crist gave an illegal contract to his close friend through the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) to control and advertise through the driver’s license handbook. His friend made millions and approximately 50 small businesses went out of business. The issue was covered only by the Tampa Tribune which helped end this practice after 6 years. Local newspapers such as the Tallahassee Democrat refused to investigate even though it was in their own backyard. Why do you think they didn’t? We don’t need a liberal to destroy the economy of Florida. Kenneth BeckerLiberal Liability Florida TaxWatch Urges DOC For Elderly Parole Option To Reduce Prison PopulationFlorida's prison population is rapidly increasing despite declining crime rates, and the latest report from Florida TaxWatch recommends options to prevent increasing costs from overwhelming taxpayers. The report, Florida's Aging Prisoner Problem, warns that the steadily growing elderly prison population in state facilities will require more costly medical care, resulting in additional budget concerns for an already struggling Department of Corrections. "Community safety is the rst thing to consider when addressing criminal justice reform, but Florida has options to reduce costs and actually improve public safety." said Dominic M. Calabro, president and CEO of Florida TaxWatch, the independent, nonpartisan, nonprot taxpayer research institute and government watchdog. "Florida taxpayers and policymakers must understand the rapidly incurring costs that accompany aging prisoners so that smart policies can be pursued that prevent either ballooning costs or quick xes to jeopardize the safety and security of Florida citizens." The analysis estimates that by the end of 2015, Florida will have nearly 4,100 additional prisoners in the elderly population, bringing the total to nearly 25,000. The average health care costs for each of these prisoners are estimated by Florida TaxWatch to be $11,000 annually. The report suggests the Florida Department of Corrections consider clemency or early release for elderly non-violent offenders who are nearing release dates or are requiring end-oflife care. "Understanding the future obligations Florida taxpayers will have for the criminal justice system will ensure our policymakers are prepared to budget for corrections costs," added Calabro. To identify, assess and manage Florida's elderly prison population, Florida TaxWatch also recommends reporting requirements for elderly prisoners' health care costs and the projections of elderly prison growth.

By Ginger Jarvis Greene Publishing, Inc. Emerald Elizabeth Greene and Kenneth Harris Parsons were joined in matrimony on September 13, 2014, at 2:30 p.m. The wedding was set at the bride’s home with family and friends in attendance. Rev. John Klimko officiated. For her wedding, the bride chose a kneelength strapless ivory dress of lace over satin. Rhinestones accented the sweetheart neckline. She carried a cascading bouquet of pink and white lilies and irises held with white satin ribbons. The bride was attended by her daughters, Cheltsie and Brooke Kinsley, who wore matching green knee-length dresses of chiffon over silk with long slit sleeves. They carried nosegays of variegated lilies and flowers looped with ribbons. Mr. Parsons was attired in a charcoal-gray suit with a yellow tie and a white rosebud boutonniere. His attendants were his sons, Kade and Connor Parsons, who wore khaki trousers with white oxford shirts, green bowties, and yellow boutonnieres. The bridal party walked down the aisle to a recorded version of “Marry You” sung by Bruno Mars. The ceremony took place against a background of mossdraped trees and shimmering pond water. White tulle swaths draped the trees surrounding the area. Following the ceremony, the couple hosted an outdoor reception at tables lined with burlap and tall antique bottles filled with baby’s breath. The group enjoyed an outdoors dinner of smoked chicken, corn-on-the-cob, baked beans, green beans, salad and tea. The wedding cake, a white, three-tiered confection, was accented with diamonds and festooned with rhinestone beading. It featured a traditional wedding topper. The groom’s cake, created by the groom’s sister, was based on a chocolate sheet cake. Its decoration reflected a highway design with a wedding couple riding a motorcycle. Mr. and Mrs. Parsons honeymooned in Fontana Dam, North Carolina, October 2 through October 5. In that locale, they enjoyed motorcycle trips on the Tail of the Dragon, the Cherohala Skyway, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the Moonshiner 28. The bride is the daughter of Mary Ellen Greene of Madison and the late Tommy Greene. The groom is the son of Becky Horne of Madison and David Parsons of Pinetta. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, October 15, 2014 4 € Madison County CarrierAROUNDMADISONCOUNTY Wedding Announcement Parsons Greene United In Marriage Obituaries Happy 1stBir t hday!

It is very important that you make arrangements, as soon as possible, to select a new physician to be certain you receive uninterrupted medical care. Please contact your medical plan to obtain a list of physicians in the area who are eligible to become your new physician. You can also contact our office for a list of physicians, in Madison County, with their phone numbers. Once you have selected a new physician, you will need to complete an authorization to release your medical records to the new physician and have that physician fax this to our office, so that we can forward the appropriate copies, promptly. After I retire, records can still be obtained by contacting me at my mailing address, P.O. Box 179, Madison, Fl 32341.

SubmittedBig Bend Hospice is proud to announce its recent honor, receiving Partner Level 4 status in the We Honor Veterans program– a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (link is external) (NHPCO) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (link is external) (VA). The region’s hometown hospice reached this pinnacle level, by focusing on increased access and improved quality of care for veterans in the Big Bend region. “Hospice staff may provide the last opportunity for veteran patients to feel appreciated, and know that their military service was not in vain,” said Lucile Palmer, valor volunteer coordinator with Big Bend Hospice. “Simple acts of gratitude at the end-of-life can make up for the feeling of a lack of appreciation or recognition during the veteran’s lifetime, especially for those that feel they were never properly welcomed home or thanked for their service.” Through the We Honor Veterans program, the NHPCO and VA invite hospices, state hospice organizations, hospice-veteran partnerships and VA facilities to join in a program focused on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgment. Recognizing the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families, allow the participating organizations to learn how to guide them through their life stories toward a more peaceful ending. Many steps were taken by BBH to achieve this honor. Meeting the necessary requirements for each level included: Level One: Providing a veteran-centric education for staff and volunteers, and identifying patients with military experience. Level Two: Building organizational capacity to provide quality care for veterans. Level Three: Developing and strengthening relationships with VA medical centers and other Veteran organizations. Level Four: Increasing access and improving quality of care for Veterans in your community. The Big Bend Hospice VALOR program, BBH’s premier program for veteran-centric services played a major role in the recent recognition. The VALOR program was created so that volunteers and staff could honor veteran patients with a brief and noble ceremony. Piloted in Wakulla County in 2011, the VALOR program has since expanded to the eight counties served by Big Bend Hospice including Leon. During VALOR presentations, VALOR team members comprised of both military veterans and non-veteran volunteers, visit patients and present them with a framed certicate and ag lapel pin. While displaying an American ag, the VALOR team leads the patient and anyone present in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, then reads a letter of appreciation signed by Cathy Adkison, president and CEO of Big Bend Hospice. The ceremony concludes by offering the highest form of honor and respect to a veteran – the salute. Many times, though weakly, the patient is able to return the salute. Other highlights attributing to Big Bend Hospice’s We Honor Veterans recognition include: veteran-to-veteran visits to hospice patients, annual participation in the Veterans Day Parade and North Florida Veterans’ Stand-Down Event and hosting annual Veterans Day Remembrance Services. Big Bend Hospice is also proud of the newly created Veterans Memorial garden at the new Jean McCully Family House. The memorial features an illuminated American ag that ies 24/7, supported by a display wall of seals from each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, all surrounded by a peacefully adorned ower garden. Additionally, TAPS is set to play at noon each day, and dog tags will be on display inside the Family House to honor all Big Bend Hospice patients identied as veterans. In January 2015, Big Bend Hospice, collaborating with the Tallahassee VA Outpatient Clinic, will serve as host to establishing a new veteran centric coalition in the Big Bend area. The mission will be to develop resources that help veterans and their families’, such as better access, essential benets, increase the integration of veteran-specic education to the community, and continually evaluate and implement better ways that improve care and service to veterans and their families. “Because veterans from all U.S. conicts sacriced to assure freedom for us all, and because it may be the last chance to give them a hero’s thank you and welcome home—Big Bend Hospice is proud to reach the highest level recognized by the We Honor Veterans program,” said Lucile Palmer. Big Bend Hospice has been serving this community since 1983 with compassionate end of life care along with grief and loss counselors available to provide information and support to anyone in Leon, Jefferson, Taylor, Madison, Gadsden, Liberty, Franklin or Wakulla County.

By Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc. The guest speaker at the 55 Plus Club meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 8 was Sheriff Ben Stewart. The topic Sheriff Stewart discussed was Amendment 2: Medical Marijuana. Amendment 2 will be on Florida voter’s ballots at the General Elections on Nov. 4. For this amendment to pass, it must receive 60 percent of the votes. To Sheriff Stewart the true medical marijuana law has already been passed and will come into effect on January 1, 2015 and that is the Charlotte Web Legislation. Charlotte’s Web Legislation is a law that was passed to allow low-THC cannabis to be used to treat patients suffering from cancer or a physical medical condition that chronically produces symptoms of seizures or severe and persistent muscle spasms. If the patient is under the age of 18, a second physician must concur with the first physician’s belief that the patient would benefit from use of low-THC cannabis. THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is the component in marijuana that gives users the high effect. Charlotte’s Web has a limitation of THC levels in the drugs used but Amendment 2 has no limitations. Along with it not being a true medical marijuana amendment, Sheriff Stewart sees other issues with Amendment 2. The way Amendment 2 is written is less restrictive than other state’s medical marijuana laws. There are no limits on the amount of marijuana a person with a certificate can possess. There are no requirements for caregivers other than being 21 years of age. “I just pray that you will vote against it,” said Sheriff Stewart. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, October 15, 2014Madison County Carrier € 7 AROUNDMADISONCOUNTY North Florida Medical Centers, In c.

It has traditionally been a day for employees to thank their bosses for being kind and fair throughout the year. This day was created for the purpose of strengthening the bond between employer and employee. Although the holiday is still controversial, it has become increasingly popular since its creation. History Patricia Bays Haroski registered "National Boss' Day" with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in 1958. She was working as a secretary for State Farm Insurance Company in Deerfield, Illinois, at the time and chose October 16, which was her father's birthday. She was working for her father at the time. The purpose of designating a special day in the workplace is to show the appreciation for her bosses she thought they deserved. This was also a strategy to attempt to improve inner-work relationships between the high-ups and the employees. Haroski believed that young employees sometimes did not understand the hardwork and dedication that their supervisors put into their work and the challenges they faced to do so. Four years later, in 1962, Illinois Governor Otto Kerner backed Haroski's registration and officially proclaimed the day. Hallmark Cards did not offer a Boss' Day card for sale until 1979. It increased the size of its National Boss' Day line by 28 percent in 2007. National Boss' Day has become an international celebration in recent years and now is observed in countries such as Australia, India, Ireland and Egypt. Note that Egypt celebrates their equivalent holiday on December 10 every year. Boss' Day Celebrations Most offices and companies celebrate Boss' Day by giving small tokens of appreciation such as flowers, candy, gift cards, etc. While this is norm tradition of the holiday, others go above and beyond to honor their supervisors. In Brunswick, Ohio, Huntington Elementary School students celebrated Boss' Day in a special and new way in honor of Principal Keith Merrill's birthday. Falling directly on October 16, students and staff members alike brought in close to around 200 jars of canned goods, including peanut butter and jelly, which was then donated to Brunswick food pantries in Merrill's name. The participants also sported goofy bow ties and ties, Merrill's work wardrobe, in honor of the holiday. Madison Health and Rehabilitation Center Welcomes Administrator Tyler SununuBy Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc. Madison Health and Rehabilitation Center will have a meet and greet brunch for their new administrator, Tyler Sununu on Friday, Oct 17 at 10 a.m. Everyone is invited. Sununu’s first day at Madison Health and Rehabilitation was Monday, Sept. 29. He received his Bachelor’s in Health Administration from University of Central Florida and his Master’s in Public Health from Florida State University. He received his license in 2011. He was the administrator at Heritage Health Care Center prior to the position opening at Madison Health and Rehabilitation Center. He wanted to be a health administrator because he wanted to help people. “It’s not a boring job,” said Sununu. “There is always something I can be doing to improve someone’s day.” Tyler Sununu Three Creative Ways To Thank Your BossCourtesy of Hufngton PostThank-you notes are a polite way to express your gratitude, but a boring thank-you note ruins all the fun! At the end of your internship, you want to give your boss something to remember you by that shows how grateful you are to have had this opportunity. And what better way to do that than with a gift that shows creativity at the same time? Give your boss a gift that will make you stand out. These gifts are totally awesome and entirely memorable -your boss will never forget you! 1. Thank-you ball A simple thank-you note looks pretty boring compared to a bouncy ball that says the same thing! Sending a ball is a funky way to show your gratitude, and your boss can play with it, too! Sendaball has options for every occasion, even one ball you can put your own words on. To send a ball, choose from the selection of balls they have and customize your message (up to 75 characters). The ball is 10 inches in diameter, so think of it as sending a volleyball to your boss. The balls cost $16 plus shipping. Send your boss a colorful bouncy ball, and she'll denitely remember how much she had with your fabulous thank-you! 2. Gift basket Everyone likes to receive a little basket of goodies at the end of the day. Fill a basket or bag full of your boss' favorite candy, a magazine to read and other fun items that he or she would like. Items such as candy, hot chocolate packets, tea and other non-perishable items make for great gift-basket llers. Attach a little thank-you note and a ribbon, and it's good to go! Cindy Harrington, an intern manager at Save the Children, says, "Last year my interns got together and they made a little gift basket for me. ... That little gift basket is such a nice way for them to thank me." 3. Personalized mug Having a cool mug on your desk makes you 10 times more awesome, and your boss thinks no different. Stand out from the crowd and make your boss a mug that holds coffee and reminds him or her of your internship. Websites like Vistaprint and CafePress make it easy to print your own photos and words onto a mug for your boss. "Every morning at my internship last summer, my boss would give us our daily assignments, then would tell us, 'Let's do this, team!' So I got him a mug with those exact words when the summer was over," says Julia Cabot, a junior at Oregon State University who interned with Nike last summer. "My boss just laughed when I handed it to him, getting the joke. A mug is a great gift for your boss." Put an ofce inside joke or a picture of all the interns on a mug for your boss to really show your appreciation!

Hallmark began selling Boss Day cards in 1979, making it an easy and inexpensive way to help celebrate your boss/leader/chief/employer/taskmaster/ruler. Once the card is purchased, its sometimes difficult to come up with things to actually write inside the card, and if there is an office full, harder even still. After a quick search on the Internet, here is a list of poems you and your co-workers can choose from to express your sentiments. All that is left for you to do will be to include your signature(s). Boss Day Thank You Poems Poem 1 This Day is Special and its just for you, To tell how much we appreciate you. We cannot tell you how happy we are, To have a Boss the way you are! Poem 2 We have someone who listens to us, We have someone to guide us too. Problems at work could have made us fuss, If you had not helped us see them through. Poem 3 You have accepted us the way we are, You have made us perform and make that mark. The joy of success has always prevailed, Because our failures were distinctively nailed! Poem 4 We are a team and we love to perform, We like to take a storm by its horns. Now we know how to rock, Cause were lucky to have you as our Boss! Poem 5 Thank you for tolerating My occasional mistake, And for the blind eye you turn When I dash in late. Thank you for your guidance When the chips are down, And for getting no angrier Than a somewhat stern frown. Thank you, in anticipation, For a raise in my pay, Which I richly deserve For sucking up to you in this way. Oh, and Boss, Have a terrific Boss Day! Poem 6 Being the one in charge Is definitely hard, And is sometimes thankless Hence this card. Those who work with you Wish to say, Thank you muchly On Boss Day! Poem 7 You always give your best, And inspire others to do likewise. That you are appreciated Should come as no surprise. Your kind of leadership skills Is a talent, thats true; One thats appreciated and one we value. Its good working for, and with, you. Happy Boss Day! Poem 8 You inspire us, encourage us, And protect us from harm. You know when to turn up the heat, And when to turn on the charm.You direct us and praise us, And keep us on track, Consider this message A hearty slap on the back! We really appreciate all you do This comes with big thanks To you, Boss, on your Boss Day! Poem 9 If Oscars were given to boss Id nominate you. If Olympic medals were won by boss Your Gold is overdue. If Nobel Prizes were awarded to boss You would definitely have quite a few. If honorary degrees were granted to boss Youd have them too. Happy Boss Day! Poem 10 Boss, I really appreciate you, And your helpful, giving ways. Your generous heart, And your unselfishness displays. I thank you for your kindness, I will not soon forget; Youre one of the nicest people, I have ever met. Happy Boss Day! Poem 11 I want to tell you Thank you,Ž But it doesnt seem enough. Words dont seem sufficient„ Blah, blahŽ and all that stuff. Please know I have deep feelings, About your generous acts, I really appreciate you Boss. If poetry isnt your thing, try one of the quotes or signature lines below: The best leader is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.Ž … Theodore Roosevelt. A good manager is a man who isnt worried about his own career but rather the careers of those who work for him.Ž … H. S. M. Burns The secret of successful managing is to keep the five guys who hate you away from the four guys who havent made up their minds.Ž … Casey Stengel Your vision, inspiration and leadership makes you an extraordinary boss. Its a privilege to work for you and with you! Every successful team has someone terrific like you leading from the front. Thank you for your inspiration and encouragement! Your dedication, passion and vision are really inspiring. Thank You for everything you do! Happy Boss Day!

First of all, it was free to any team that wanted to participate. Second, the starting line was located in an orchard at Green Industries, where pecan leaves were gracefully drifting down upon the runners’ heads like manna from heaven. “The layout was breathtaking,” said Aucilla Christian Academy Cross Country Coach Dan Nennstiel, whose boys’ team won first place with a perfect score while the girls’ team placed second. “God absolutely gave us a beautiful day to host this race.” This was the first race the school has hosted in years that wasn’t at the school, and they received great support from Jefferson County. “I have to thank Parrish Barwick, John Lilly and the Jefferson County Commissioners for providing the manpower and property required for this race,” said Nennstiel. A total of six teams were represented, including: Florida High, John Paul II Catholic High School, Godby High School, Suwannee High School, North Florida Christian School and ACA. “An army of people were at the race working behind the scenes, and we couldn’t be more grateful.” Nennstiel said they didn’t advertise the race as they normally would because this was a “test race” to see what the course could handle. He believes there is a possibility that a bigger race could be held in the future at the same Green Industries location because Jefferson County is centrally located to participating schools, especially if ACA continues to charge no entrance fee. “When I started coaching over 10 years ago, we didn’t have to pay more than $50 or so to enter a race,” said Nennstiel. “Now, schools are charging hundreds of dollars for teams to participate in races, and it’s just not right. That’s one reason we decided this race would be free.” Jefferson County's picturesque setting and central location has a lot going for it as a destination for cross country running. The southern charm of the people and hospitality just may win the hearts of those who enjoy racing -and, like manna from heaven, be something that’s not expected, but certainly needed and appreciated by all who love this sport.

However, the month took on another signicant meaning in 1994 when it was named Pastor Appreciation Month by Focus on the Family. It's a time when congregations across the nation give back to their spiritual leader who has given so much to them. Pastor Appreciation Day was Sunday, Oct. 12. This year marks the 20thAnnual Pastor Appreciation Month and Pastor Appreciation Sunday. Throughout the month of October, Greene Publishingwill publish submitted articles from individuals and congregations who wish to honor their pastor in the Madison County Carrierevery Wednesday throughout the month of October. To celebrate this special occasion, we are asking for community members to submit words of kindness or appreciation about your pastor, alomg with picture to this newspaper. The deadline for submissions is every Monday before 3 p.m. Each submission must be 100 words or less. Please send your responses to bryant@greenepublishing.com or you may call the ofce at (850) 973-4141. The idea behind Pastor Appreciation Month was that recognizing and honoring pastors year-round is biblical and proper, but setting aside one month and one special Sunday a year brings the message to the forefront, reminding people not only of all the things their pastor does for them but also giving them the occasion to ponder what they might in turn be able to do for their pastor, minister, leader and church staff.Bible Deliverance ChurchThe congregation at Bible Deliverance Church in Madison would like to take this time to thank our pastor, Tommy Thigpen, during Pastor Appreciation Month. Although Tommy hasn't been behind the steering wheel very long, his effective leadership has already made an impact on the lives of this congregation. His teaching makes the Scriptures easy to understand. His musical talent touches the hearts of people, and his preaching of the Word guides us to a closer relationship with Christ. When the church doors are closed and the lights are turned off, his ministry is just beginning. Our pastor spends countless hours visiting with the sick, those in nursing homes and hospitals and lends a helping hand with whatever work that needs to be done. We're grateful God has chosen you to be our leader. We love you, The congregation of Bible Deliverance Church Tommy Thigpen Pastor of Bible Deliverance ChurchMt. Olive Baptist Church Greg Ragans Pastor of Mt. Olive Baptist ChurchLee Worship CenterBy Bryant ThigpenGreene Publishing, Inc. On Sunday, Oct. 5, Lee Worship Center set aside a special time to honor their pastor on Pastor Appreciation Day. The church presented him with gifts of appreciation and a dinner following morning worship. Sauls brought the morning message titled, "Save the Ashes," taken from Numbers 19:1-10. "Some of you have gone through times in your life when it seemed like everything in your life was on 'Fire,'" Sauls told his congregation. Sauls told the people when they're ready to be completely delivered, there were things they needed to burn: the memories; what they said; how things looked; the hurt feelings; the gossip that came against you; and what they are still trying to do (to you). "They're grinning in your face, and trying to kill you. But you don't have time to worry about it," Sauls said. "When it's all over," he said "the only thing I want you to save are those ashes." He continued, "After you have gone through hell and high water, and everything in your life has been tried and it looked like you were going to have a nervous breakdown, the only thing I want you to save is the ashes. What are the ashes? The ashes are what's left after the burning stops."

By Bryant ThigpenGreene Publishing, Inc.Clint and Crysti Handeld and Family will soon be leaving the United States of America and will become residents of Ethiopia. The family will be moving the rst part of January to their new home overseas for the opportunity of teaching English to immigrants. “It's been a passion of mine that has really grown since I was in middle school,” said Crysti. “Through college, that same passion and excitement continued.” Crysti is a lifelong resident of Madison County and has been a member of Fellowship Baptist Church since she was in the second grade. While attending youth group, her pastor encouraged them to share their faith locally, and then abroad. As she got older, the passion of sharing her faith never wavered. In 2007, Crysti met the love of her life, Clint, formerly of Moultrie, Ga., while attending Valdosta State University. “We were both involved in the Baptist Collegiate Ministry there,” she recalled. “We started dating and we were married Oct. 17, 2009.” The couple have three beautiful children: Cooper, three, and twins, Reid and Grady, 22 months. While a freshman in college, Clint came to know Christ following the death of a family member. He was invited to attend church, which changed his life forever. “I had been attending for about two months and I felt God drawing me to Him, so I surrendered my life to Christ,” Clint said. Crysti accepted Jesus Christ as her savior at a very early age. “In 1996 while I was attending Vacation Bible School, someone explained why we needed Jesus Christ by using color cards, which represented different things,” Crysti said. “It was then I realized how much He loved me and I wanted to love Jesus back.” Both Clint and Crysti have visited Africa before. So, when the couple decided to move across the border, Ethiopia felt right to the couple. “We spent a long time looking and checking out all the different places,” Crysti said. “We both have visited Africa and we both loved it. I believe God has taught our hearts to love that place.” The couple will reside in Addis Abeba, the capital of Ethiopia, and will join a family of friends they met about a year ago. “The city itself is pretty large. There's about three million people in the city, which is about the size of Jacksonville,” Clint said. “In this city, there's only four trafc lights. They're still learning how to use them.” “You have to watch out for the random livestock walking in the streets,” Crysti laughed. As volunteers, the Handelds will teach English to immigrants, which will equip them with tools that will help them be successful in the world. “It will be tough leaving the people who we really care about and who really care about us,” Clint said. Crysti added although they will be moving overseas, they will still come back and visit. “Thankfully with modern technology such as Skype, we can still keep in touch,” she said. Fundraising efforts are underway to help this local family with their moving expenses. Clint noted the cost of living is much higher in Ethiopia than here, so their monthly operating budget will be about $6,000 per month. So far, the family has raised about 23 percent of their needed monthly expenses. In addition to the monthly expenses, the family will also have to purchase a vehicle, which will cost approximately $20,000. “Living expenses are much more higher over there,” Clint laughed. The Handeld Family is very grateful for the support they have received, which has stemmed from their home church, Fellowship Baptist Church, and Pine Grove Missionary Baptist Church. “We're very grateful for the support from the people who believe in us and has helped us in this journey,” Crysti said. “It really means a lot to us.” The family is also available to speak at local churches and share their testimony about this journey. “We would love to speak at local churches and share what God is doing in our lives,” Clint said.

According to coevent coordinator Roy Faglie, the purpose of the golf tournament is to strengthen the fellowship among the churches who are members of the Middle Florida Baptist Association. “We want to strengthen the fellowship and communication with our fellow Christian brothers among our association,” Faglie said. Faglie also noted the annual golf tournament serves as a great tool for reaching people outside the four walls of a church. “We see this as a way to reach out to those who don't attend church. They may love to play golf and will go to a golf tournament, but they don't go to church. This will be a great opportunity for them to be around Christian brothers and hear the message of Christ,” Faglie said. There were 10 different churches that were represented in the tournament and several individuals took home prizes. The team who won the golf tournament was comprised of Ed Hebert, Wayne Asbell, Danny Deason and John Morris. The longest drive award went to Will Morris. Cricket Edwards and Chris Eades were recognized for achieving the closest to the pin. At the end of the tournament, players and spectators were treated to a delicious bar-b-cue meal. “We would like to thank the Madison Country Club for allowing us to use their facilities for hosting this Brotherhood Golf Scramble,” Faglie said. “We appreciate the players and especially the nice weather we had that day. We had an enjoyable time.”Photo By Roy FaglieFriends got together on Saturday and competed in the Fifth Annual Brotherhood Golf Tournament. Pictured from left to right are: R.D.

We have often heard people use the phrase "I am blessed," which is true simply because we are blessed. We are blessed indeed, simply by having the privilege of living in such a great nation; one that affords us freedom of worship and witness without fear of persecution. And, too, we are blessed living in a land of opportunities and prosperity. But the term "bless/blessed" is rooted deeper than in geography and materialism. By no means is it wrong for the term "bless/blessed" to be used. It is a Christian word; it is a spiritual word; and it is a biblical word. However, the word "bless/blessed" has been hijacked by our culture. It is too often, however, used loosely while in many instances misunderstood. When we say we are "blessed," we need to understand the usage of the term in how we are implying it; so that there will be no misrepresentation of the term. The term "bless" is dened biblically in various ways, depending on how the term is used in its content. The various meanings of the term are: "To praise, to celebrate with praises"--of that which is addressed to God; "To consecrate a thing with solemn prayers"--that of which to ask God's blessing; and "Happy or blissful"--that which Jesus used on the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1-11). But there is also another meaning of the term "bless/blessed," which means "a self-contained happiness" by which many associates the term; thereby using it more frequent in the geography and materialism concept than realized. For example, the Greeks thought that Cypress had everything one needed to be happy. Because of its geographical location, perfect climate, and fertile soil they believed that anyone who lived on Cypress had it made in the shade. Therefore, they associated the term in "a selfcontained happiness," calling the Island of Cypress "the happy isle." We, American Christians, too often associate the term "bless" in the same matter, even though not realizing it. Not only do we associate the term "bless/blessed" with our geographic location, but also materialism. Please do not get me wrong. We are truly blessed of God! I fully agree that we live in a land, not only of opportunities, but also a land of prosperity. And, YES! We should be grateful for such a blessing. But we must keep in mind that too often we associate being blessed based on the materialism we possess. The world views success (blessing) by what one owns; such as the size of house one lives in and/or type of vehicle one drives, etc. We must understand, however, we are blessed no matter what size of house, apartment, or condo we live in or what kind of car we drive. Whatever one may possess only by the grace of God we have what we have. What about third world countries, can not they be blessed? What about the person that cannot afford even a car of any sort, are they not blessed? I think, or hope, you get the picture I am presenting. Being "blessed" is not based on the geographic or materialistic aspects of life, but that of God alone. Only by the grace (blessing) of God we live where we dwell and have what we possess!!! We must not use the term "bless/blessed" as it has been used so loosely by the hijackers. We must understand what it really means to be blessed by the implications of the term that Jesus used in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1-11). We are truly "blessed" when we are poor in spirit; mourners; hunger and thirst for righteousness; merciful; pure in heart; peacemakers; persecuted for righteousness' sake; and when people revile, persecute, and say all manner of evil against us falsely for His sake. YES! All Christians, no matter the geography or materialism, can be blessed and are blessed when we practice the Christian principles found in the Sermon on the Mount by our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ! I pray that the article has been a "blessing" to you and will help you along your journey with Jesus! Pastor Benjie Dyal is the pastor of New Home Baptist Church in Madison, Fl.

The project partners with the Madison Fire Department and the Madison County Forestry Service in an effort to increase awareness of fire safety to young children. Schools participating in the event were Madison County Central School (who hosted the event), Greenville Elementary, Lee Elementary, Madison Academy and Pinetta Elementary. Approximately 230 second grade students enjoyed a tour of the ladder truck, learning about equipment worn by firefighters, practicing "stop, drop and roll,” visiting with fire department mascot “Sparky,” seeing large fire-fighting machinery used by the forestry service, hugging Smokey the Bear, being shown library books that can be accessed through their school library and receiving a fire hat and goodie bag from JA, as well as a goodie bag from the Forestry Service. The JA of Madison County is a service organization dedicated to improving the lives of children in the community. This local chapter received national recognition last year at the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries conference in May for the implementation of this project. Greene Publishing, Inc.
