"The Turning Point."
Those are the words at the
top of the sign at the church I
attend. Until last week, they
weren't there. The sign had
gotten a little shabby looking
before Mike Carson, the visit-
ing evangelist who preached
our revival last week, noticed
it and decided to repaint it.
Mike added the words
"The Turning Point." I looked
at where the sign was located
and where the church was lo-
cated and it made perfect
sense. Midway Church of God
is located at a turning point on
SE Midway Church Road.
The sign also makes sense
from a spiritual standpoint.
Any Bible-believing church,
such as Midway Church of
God, is a turning point in a
person's spiritual life.
I spoke to several other
folks in the congregation. No
one else had thought about the
church being located at a turn-
ing point, either.
Last week, I went to a re-
vival and I was revived! I felt
as if I had spiritual CPR and
life was breathed into me
Mike Carson did some in-
teresting things last week and
he brought out some interest-
ing points. Things we know
we should do, but we hadn't
been doing simple things
like praying for the pastor and
loving each other.
I wish that everyone
could have been at the re-
vival. I can't wait to hear Pas-
tor Retis Flowers when he
steps back into -the pulpit to
preach again. It should be
This past Sunday, Brother
James Phillips invited every-
one in the church to go up and
hug the pastor and his wife
and then pray for them.
Everyone joined in. It was a
touching moment and one that
I know will only serve to
make the church stronger.
If you're looking for a
church to attend, why not try
Midway Church of God? I
look forward to seeing you at
"the Turning Point" as we all
gather together and turn our
eyes upon Jesus and look full
into His wonderful face.

One of those issues is the prospect of changing to a Critical
Care Access hospital. Pugh gave each member a copy of the just-
arri'ed feasibility study on the matter. The board will hold a round-
table meeting with the author of the study on May 10 at 5:30 p.m.
to discuss the report. Pugh said, "This %will make a difference of
about $74.000 annually. It w ill mean we must make our Home
Health business an independent entity. It could open doors to fi-
nancing for construction. And it means we: must ha'e a financial
cushion to see us through at least 90 days of transition."
He said that the board needs to clearly understand these issues
prior to taking action on switching to Critical Care or not.
The board re itewed the final report on the most recent audit;
no action %was required. Chief Financial Officer Deena Hames ex-
plained that her department is working on the few problems found,
and agreed to a suggestion by member Oscar Brennan that all those
steps be put in writing for trustees.
Hames also reported that MCMH showed a $286,000 profit in
March. "'We did not make that much. Part of it Wvas a $100,000
Medicare settlement, some of it was a discount -from Capital Re-
gional Hospital. and some of it %\as credit from"a couple of compa-
nies that had made errors in billing us." she eNplained. She said the
actual profit \\as about $29.000.
Pugh pointed out that the hospitaT has shown', a profit each
month since October. He also asked board members to take time to
see some improvements underway'. "We ha'e repaired the termite
damage in the annex and fixed the floor, we are making some
changes on our patient % ing, and %%e have about $16,000 forcorn-
tinuing education classes on obesity." He stated that Madison Coun-
ty's running about 14 percent abo\e the state average in obesity
problems. "We need td educate:our community on this," he said.

Exciting Plans For This Year

Church in Madison Last Thursday Night, April 21. (Greene Publishing, Inc. photo by Bill

This is an exciting year
for the Guardian ad LitemI
Program. The statewide GAL
office recently held its Circuit
three meeting to acknowledge
the efforts of local Madison
Ad Litum. Directors Tammy
Webb and Linda Peacock
worked extra hard to make the
dinner happen at the First
Baptist Church in Madison.
Some of the distinguished
guests on hand were Judge
R.B. Davis, Third Circuit Ad
Tl-i'ii S -IE7E, t'L'I
Litum Director Debra E. Kin-
sey, who added. "The program
works on a grass rools level,
and locally we need people
like the ones being honored
here tonight to surmount the
increasing demand that the
state has," said Kinsey.
The dinner followed with
a raffle that handed out prizes
to everyone in attendance.
Some of the topics that
were addressed were the Flori-
da GAL program which is
poised to make significant
strides in its representation of
Florida's abused and neglect-
ed children. For many years
the goal of the program has
been to represent 100% of
children, involved in depen-
dency proceedings. The orga-
nization \ ill prepare a plan to
achieve this goal that will *be
-.presented to the Legislatute
ine:[ Ssession. .
The panel also discussed
exploring additional Federal,
'county and private funding
opportunities_ to supplement
funding pro\ ided by the state.
To increase conmunica-
tion and data sharing. the or-
ganization is developing a
statewide website, net%\ork
and case management s\ stem.
"Our primary goal is to
provide a voice for every child
in dependency proceedings;,
we must also become the
voice for dependent children
before the Legislature and in
local communities. With addi-
tional resources, the program
can increase public aw areness
of child abuse and neglect. and
become a resource for child
advocates through out : the
state," said Angela Orkin. Ex-,
ecutive Director, Statewide
Guardian ad Litem Office.,
While the immediate
goals for the program seem
daunting, the Program already
has the support to 'achieve
these goals. The GAL State
Association, local nonprofits,
staff and,volunteers are all as-
sisting w ith the transition.
While the new state office will
strive, to meet new, goals. it is
the s.aff and volunteerss thai
are achieving our mission
each and every day. With their
help, the FGALP is becoming
a mode of representation, ad-
vocating for each and every
dependent child, as well as for
the systemic changes, neces-
sary to protect Florida's
abused and neglected children.

for over 40 years in Madison. He started out selling
insurance traveling the state of Florida.
"I gave up traveling around the state selling
,health insurance plans about 20 years ago. I would
travel from Pensacola to Miami and that was quite a
route," said Russell.
Russell did most of his traveling when his com-

with AFLAC for about three years, as he believes
their health care package is hard to beat.
"We have hospital intensive care coverage, sup-
plemental health care and accidental coverage, to
name a few. There are many different plans in case
you need health care, hopefully you will not. My-
self, I've had a triple heart by-pass, colon cancer and
I'm diabetic to boot. I have a little bit of everything
and I'm glad to have coverage," said Russell.
AFLAC; is a company with assets exceeding
$45 billion, insuring more than 40 million people
worldwide, a world leader in guaranteed-renewable
insurance with more than 250,000 national payroll
accounts and named by Fortune magazine to it list

To participate in this event call Susan Miller at (8U0) 9i1- /zo.
Bike-a-thons are normally held on a Saturday or Sunday with participants riding as many
miles as possible. The participants then collect the pledged amount from their sponsors for each
mile they rode. Example: Janie rides 20 miles and has 10 sponsors whose pledges total $3 per
mile. Her total collections would amount to $60 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The average ride nationally has 16 to 20 riders, with $75 raised by each participant, which gen-
erates an average of $1,200 for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude
provides a certificate and a special T-shirt for riders collecting $35 or more, and a certificate, T-
shirt and a special sports bag for everyone raising $75 or more.
ABOUT ST. JUDE
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital welcomes refer-
rals of children and adolescents with newly diagnosed un-
treated or suspected cancer or with hematologic, immuno-
logic, or genetic diseases. In addition, previously treated
patients who have received treatment elsewhere, may be ac-
cepted on an individual case basis when there is a potential
for protocol eligibility on ongoing studies, relapse studies,
bone marrow transplantation protocols or Phase I-II studies.
Patients with genetic disorders or immunologic diseases are
accepted anytime in their disease history based on protocol
eligibility or potential to contribute to research projects.
Patients are enrolled on medical research studies called
clinical trials designed to provide the best available care
while answering important research questions.
You can reach the physician referral line by calling 1-
866-278-5833 and identifying yourself as a physician and
asking to speak to an attending physician. If a physician
cannot take your call, please leave a message and we will
return your call as soon as possible.
If you have a difficult diagnostic or medical manage-
ment case, we will be happy to speak to you about ques-
tions you may have. If you prefer, you can send us a de-
tailed medical history, copies of relevant diagnostic imag-
ing evaluations, and pathology/histological material and
our multidisciplinary groups will discus your patient's case
and offer recommendations.
After the initial therapy has been completed, patients
are typically managed in close collaboration with their pri-
vate physicians. St. Jude experts in hematology, oncology,
bone marrow transplantation, immunology, genetic dis-
eases and infectious diseases are available at all times for
consultation regarding possible side effects of therapy,
signs of recurring disease, or other questions related to pa-
tient management on mutual patients on St. Jude clinical
trials. Close contact with our patients' referring physician is
important to us and necessary for our patients' safety. If you
have patients on our studies and need to contact someone
about them, please call 1-866-278-5833 and ask to speak to
the St. Jude attending physician for your patient.
All patients accepted for treatment at St. Jude are treat-
ed without regard to the family's ability to pay. St, Jude cov-
ers all costs of treatment at St. Jude beyond those reim-
bursed by third-party insurers, and total costs at St. Jude
when no insurance is available. St. Jude also provides as-
sistance with transportation costs and local living expenses

Preacher's message from Acts 9: "Changing at.

proper steps for the erection of a
jail in Madison."
On JanIuary 5, 1888, the
commission announced that af-
ter considering several bids, the
work of building the jail 'would
go to an Ohio company. Cost of
construction was to be $6,150.
The building was complet-
ed in 1889 and served the coun-
ty for many years as a jail. Bars
were on the windows and cells
were contained in a raised area in
die center of the main room. Jail-
ers patrolled by walking in the,
lower area around the walls.
These exterior walls were 10
Another wall, made of
bricks and later covered with
stucco and still visible, surround-
ed the facility, An old cistern
which has been uncovered is vis-
ible in the southwest corner of
the property .
The Old Jail served the
county until another facility was
constructed in the early 1950s.
In 1996, the county applied
for a grant to restore the proper-
ty which was to become part of a
walking tour of the City of
Madison. A grant for the work in
the amount of $200,000 was se-
cured. A restoration architect and
several skilled workers brought
the building up to'code in the ar-
eas of electrical and plumbing.
The building was inspected by
Phillip Wisley, architect with the
Bureau of Historic Preservation.
He was accompanied by Mrs. W
C. Copeland of the Madison
County Historical Society. He
was impressed by the historical
background and condition of the

The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 11A
By Mike Moore

Springtime means more than flowers, baseball, nice
weather, and new clothes. It means football.
High schools are permitted 20 days of spring drills.
It is a time to get ready for the fall, to put in new
plays and see what players can do. The seniors have
played their last game for Alma Mater and now the un-
derclassmen must move up to fill the holes which gradu-
ation v.ill lea\ e. Players who spent last season on the var-
sit\ are expected to work hard during spring drills as the\
seek to earn pla ing time.
Often. spring practice is the %work without much of the
fun. There vill no %weekly FridaN night games under the
lights No cheerleaders or pep rallies or pats on the back
from other students %%ill be there.
There will be sweat and yelling coaches and sore
bodies. But the kids ~ ill sta\ and endure it all and dream
of the fall Fridays and the game uniforms and running
onto the field while the band plaNs.
Spring practice is a time for: players to catch the
coach's eye and earn the position they seek. Coaches rmay
experiment, move a player or two to a different position
to strengthen the squad.
Spring drills at MCHS will be important. The Cow-
boys lost 25 seniors from last year's team. but 25 juniors
will return in the fall. There were also 18 players who
were sophomores in 2004. Three freshmen were on last
year's varsity. About 32 players were on last year's junior
Monda. NlaN 2. is the date football returns to the.
Madison County practice fields. Coach Frankie Carroll
and his staff at NICHS expect to welcome about 100 play-
ers to spring drills This includes both varsity and junior
\arsit\ candidates. State rules require the first three days
of practice be held with shirts, shorts, and shoes, but no
pads. After that, the serious hitting can begin.'"We think
we ha\e some boss \\ho will run and hit somebody," said
There ha\e been some changes in the distti.ct, In
2004, Ditrict 2 Class 2A consisted of Madison County,
Taylor tCunty and Wakulla. This fall, the Cowboys will
face Dixie C ty, Taylor, and Fort White, as district
foes. .... V
The varsity posted a 12-1 record in 2004 with the only
loss coming in the state championship game. In 2003, the
Cowboys were 12-1-1 with the only loss also in the title
game. The team Won the state championship in 2001. The
junior varsity was undefeated in 2004.
"We have holes to fill but many good players are re-
turning." said Carroll. Several JV players \\ill be count-
ed on to mov' up to the big team. "We need to come out
of spring practice two deep at etery position on both of-
fense and defense." said Carroll.
Spring practice concludes with a home game against
East Gadsden, Saturday. MaN 21, at 7:00.
Aucilla Christian Academ) did not ha\e a great ear
on the field in 2004. But the 2005 season could be one of
improvement. Only two seniors were on the \\arrior ros-
ter, with nine juniors moving up. Fixe sophomores were
on the squad and are also being counted on to challenge
fo t"starting spots.
S.Twenty players were on the junior \arsit\ squad in
.4,004 and several could also be of help.
.Coach Dave Roberts and his staff %ill conduct a two-
Wveek spring practice, also beginning Ma\ 2. Due to the
fact that so many of Aucilla's football players are in-
volved in spring sports, the school does not plan to ha'e
a spring game.
Aucilla Christian Academy expects an improved team in 2005.

Johnson, who began
working at the school 10 years

mixed emotions about retiring.
"I cannot think of a job I'd
rather have than right here,"
says Johnson, who grew up in
Lee and says that she thinks
she's kin to half of the people
"Half of them are my
brothers and sisters, and the
other half are kin," she says
with a laugh.
Johnson comes from the
Bell family. Her brothers and
sisters include James Bell,

Baptist Church in Lee, while
growing up, where Rev. I.T.
Carter served for many years
as the church's pastor.
Before coming to Lee to
work as a secretary, she had
worked as a paraprofessional
at Pinetta Junior High School.
Before that, she had been a
clerk typist with Health and
Rehabilitative Services in

Recreation in Tallahassee.
She is married to Murray

Jimmy Taylor, who was
the principal at Pinetta at the
time and is now the principal

Shelf Life Of Everyday
SCare'I T P olucts
Spring means it's time to
clean out the garage. But, how
do you know what to toss and
what to store? We've uncov-
ered some general guidelines
for many common gardening
and lawn care products.
Gasoline- Gas has a shelf
life of around 30 days. Gaso-
line formulations have been
changing for many years. It
does not store as well as the
gasoline we used even just a
few years ago. Using old gas
may significantly harm a
lawnmower's life span. The
old fuel can clog the carbure-
tor making the mower hard to
start. If the stuff in your tank is
older than 30 days, dispose of
it and get fresh gas.
Oil- Oil can have a shelf
life of up to three years, but it
is important to change mower
engine oil at least once a year.
Check .your owner's manual
for exact specifications.
Grass Seed- Depending
upon the storage, grass seeds
can last two to three years. In
order to test its vitality; plant a
few seeds in a small flower-
pot, keep them moist and cov-
er them with a plastic bag.
Good seeds will, germinate
within a week or two.
Fertilizer- Fertilizer nev-
er goes bad. Even when it be-
comes compacted and hard, all
you need to do is take a ham-
mer and break-it apart.
When discarding old fuel or
oil, make sure to dispose of it,
properly in places such as a
service station or waste dis-

'The program was highly informa-

"In Florida, during. the past three
years, wildfires that burned almost a mil-

damaged or destroyed. Unfortunately.
our state will continue to experience
daniaging wildfires in the interface until
people begin to work together to solve
basic community planning issues at the
local level," said Robin Marquette, an-
other presenter for the Division of
Even though disaster can happen in
any community, there are things that each
of us can do to prepare for and lessen the
effects of w ildland fires in the interface.
The Firewise Communities initiative was-
jointly developed b. the US Forest Ser-

sociation and is the first national program
to offer a significant response to the %ild-

World's Largest Airplane
Takes Maiden Flight
The world's largest passenger plane, the Airbus A380, suc-
cessfully took off on its maiden flight Wednesday, a milestone
for aviation and for the European aircraft-maker's battle with
American rival Boeing Co.
The giant plane's four engines hauled its double-decked,
308-ton fuselage aloft at 10:29 a.m., an achievement watched by
thousands of spectators 101 years after the Wright brothers' first
The plane was carrying a crew of six and 22 tons of on-
board test instruments. Its first flight was expected to last
about four hours.
The plane was likely to stay within 100 miles of the airport
in Blagnac, a suburb of Toulouse in southwest France. It was
beaming back real-time measurements to Airbus headquarters at
The flight capped 11 years of preparation and $13 billion, in,
spending. Spectators camped out by the airport to be there for
what some said was Europe's biggest aviation event since the
first flight of the supersonic
Concorde in 1969.
The A380, with a cata-
logue price of $282 million,
sign represents a huge bet by
Airbus that international
airlines will need bigger air-
craft to transport passengers.
between ever-busier hub
But some analysts say
signs of a boom in the market for smaller ide-body planes,
such as Boeing's long-range 787 "Dreamliner," show that Air-
bus was wrong to focus so much time and money on its super-
Just this week, Air Canada said it had firm orders for 32
new Boeing jets, including 14 787s, with a list value of about $6
billion, and Air India announced plans to order 50 Boeing jets
worth $6.8 billion. Air India wants 27 of the 787s, which will
carry up to 257 passengers and have a list price of $120 million,
boosting total orders and commitments for the plane to 237. The,
787, which was launched a year ago,, is scheduled to enter ser-
vice in 2008.
So far, Airbus has booked 154 orders for the A380, which it
says .will ..carry passengers 5 percent farther than Boeing's\
longest-range 747 jumbo at a per-passenger cost up to one: fifth
But Airbus has \et to prove that it can turn a profit on its su-
perjumbo investment, a third of which came from came from
European go% ernments.
Airbus. a unit of European Aeronautic Defence and Space
Co., is also planning to bring its own mid-sized jetliner, the
A350, into service in 2010 two years.after the;Boeing 787..
Aviation. experts say risks were very slim on the A380
maiden test flight since a plane's aerodynamic characteristics
are already well known before it takes .off, thanks to years of
computer modeling and wind-tunnel tests.
Problems are more likely, but still very rare, later in the test-
flight program, when the pilots deliberately take the plane to its
limits.-An-Airbus A330 prototype crashed here in July 1994.
killing chief test pilot Nick Warner and six others as they con-
ducted a simulated engine failure exercise.
The test-flight program is likely to finishbefore the A380,
enters service for Singapore Aiilifies in mid-2006, Airbus said -
about three months behind the previous schedule.
Part of the. delay is down to the superjumbo's struggle with,
a weight problem that consumed months of engineering time
and most of the program's $1.88 billion in cost overruns. Com-
petitive pressure on airlines to offer plusher business-class seat-
ing tightened the squeeze compounded by the A380's sheer
Bush Wants Refineries
At Ex-Defense Bases,
President 'Bush is offering to make closed militia bases
available for new oil refineries and will ask Congress to pro\ ide
a "risk insurance" to the nuclear industry against regulatory de-
lays to spur construction of new nuclear power plants, senior ad-
ministration officials said Tuesday.
The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said
the president will outline his proposals in a speech Wednesday
in which he intends to emphasize how new technologies can be
used to ease the energy supply crunch.
The White House acknowledged that none of the initiatives
was expected to provide any short-term relief from soaring
gasoline and oil prices. It is Bush's second speech on energy
within a week, reflecting the growing concern within the White
House over the political fallout over high energy prices.
The officials said the president believes the country needs a
diverse supply of energy, including expansion of aggressive nu-
clear power. There has not been a new commercial nuclear re-
actor ordered in the United States since 1973.
Some utilities have indicated they may be interested in
building a new reactor, perhaps as early as 2010, but industry of-
ficials say they need assurance of a smooth regulatory process
to get financing. Nuclear power accounts for about 20 percent of
the country's electricity.
The president also will. outline a proposal to work with lo-
cal communities to build refineries on closed military sites, hop-
ing that will encourage construction of new refineries and ease
the shortage of U.S. oil refining capacity.
There has not been a new refinery built in the United States
in nearly three decades, although numerous refineries have been
expanded to increase capacity. A shortage of U.S. refining ca-
pacity has been cited includ-
Sing this week by Saudi Ara-
bia's Crown Prince Abdulla at
a meeting with Bush'at his
Texas ranch for high gasoline
The president also w ill
call on Congress to provide a
tax credit for gas-electric hy-,
brid automobiles and for use
of clean diesel. The, hybrid tax
break was included in Bush's
budget earlier this year but left out of the energy bill passed by'
the House last week. .
Such a credit would provide $2.5 billion in tax incentives
over 10 years, the White House officials said. Consumers would
get a credit, up to 54.000. depending on the level of a vehicle's
fuel efficiency, if they purchase a hybrid or clean-diesel vehicle.
SBush will announce his support for giving the federal gov-
ernment clear authority in the siting of liquefied natural gas im-.
port terminals. Such a provision is included in the energy bill
passed by the House last week. Some la%% makers strongly op-
posed the measure, arguing it will deprive states and local com-,
munity a say in LNG facility siting at a time When a dozen or
more such facilities' may be
built along the U.S. coast.
The critics say they fear
that federal control over locat-
ing LNG import terminals
will lead to facilities being put
in populated areas where
communities fear they are un-.
safe and might become terror-
