Yields On

Easements For



*City approves easement requests for
Gordon Tractor Company and Four
By Ginger Jarvis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madison's business community won impor-
tant right-of-way concessions from the Board of
Commissioners at their regular meeting June 14.1
Gordon Tractor Company and Four Freedoms
Chapel both presented needs for using city right-
of-way as commercial property; both requests
were granted unanimously.
The commission heard Lee Gordon in May as
he sought permission to close off Burnett St. and
fence it in. This week, he added a note of urgency.
"Just in the past two weeks, we havehad two ma-
chines damaged and some inventory stolen. I am
concerned about liability because someone could
get hurt." He added that his insurance company
might drop his coverage if the business allowed
the intrusions to continue.
Cit- Attorney Clay Schnitker advised the
board that they had two options. "'You can aban-
don the street to Gordon's ownership, then buy it
back for one dollar. Then you could set restric-
tions about the pavement and other matters." he
said. "Or you can restrict the use of.the-street, cre-
ating the ability for them to close and fence it, and
charge them an annual rental fee. That wa. you
would still retain ow nership of the right-of-w ay if
you eter need it again."

Dewayne Leslie has been farming in the Hanson area
of Madison County for a long time. He has seen more rain
recently than in almost any springtime or early summer.
"This is not our usual amount of rainfall." he said.
"We have had 10 inches of rain in five days. This is very
heavy," he said Wednesday afiemoon.
Leslie said he will probably lose some of his squash
and peanut crops. Large areas of the fields are under wa-

the road leading into Leslie's property was covered with
water after the rains. Leslie had praise for county work

The farmer pointed out that his neighbor. Tommy
Morris, had received about the same amount of rain on,
his property.

Part Of The Future Of The County Is At Stake

To the Editor:
I want to apologize if I have given offense to Ms. Dianne
Bachari-in my zeal to keep Wal-Mart out of Madison county.
She is entitled to her opinion. I have a dear relative who actual-
ly owns stock in Wal-Mart and we fuss and feud over it amiably
all the time. I'm a bit of a monomaniac on the subject of Wal-
But I don't want her to hush. I don't want anyone to .hush.
This is an issue that should be aired fully and freely afidwidely.
I would be interested to hear other opinions on Wal-Mart. As I
said in my first letter, my interest in Madison is sentimental.
Yours is real. Your opinion is much more valuable than mine.
I'm not trying to silence anyone. I want everyone to think about
this issue and speak up. Part of the future of the county is at
stake. You should not remain silent now. This is important.
I was glad and grateful to see and, read Mr. Howard B. Pick-
els' letter. He has a grassroots understanding of how these things
happen and the consequences that follow from them. The be-
havior of the Wal-Mart setter-uppers in Perry, which he de-
scribed magnificently, made for extremely rich reading. Even I
did not know of this! What greed! What selfishness! But that's
Wal-Mart, through and through.
If I may re-state Mr. Pickel's well-argued case briefly, it is
this: There is no such thing as a free lunch. The law of grat it)
cannot be suspended. Wal-Mart may deceive you into thinking
you are paying lower prices at the cashier, but they pick your
pocket every April 15 when you pay your taxes, pay for Medic-
aid and other assorted expenses associated with poverty relief in
the U.S. They shift this burden onto you later. It's an ingenious
strategy and deserves a certain measure of admiration for its
sheer cleverness.
Now let me preach again: Wal-Mart is immoral. It is
wrong. Greed and theft are still sins. So is lying. Stores that dis-
figure the landscape, jobs that demean the human spirit and in-
sult the dignity of labor with wages that waste the soul, along
with ruses and shifts and sneaking dodges that abuse the very
name of common decency and probity, ought not to be permit-
ted, still less rewarded with government subsidies in disguise.
Sweat wrung from the brows of children and teenagers in
Guatemala, Bangladesh. China and other Third World countries
ought not to be sold in the United States, without fair remuner-
ation to those youngsters. It is a plain matter of right and wrong.
Surely Madison, with all its churches, with a copy of the Bible
under glass in its town square, hasn't forgotten the difference
between right and wrong!
Ms. Bachari raises a fair point when she says I am only neg-
ative, and have nothing positive to offer in place of my jeremi-
ads against Wal-Mart. She is right. Let me attempt a few sug-
gestions. I.warn you, I am a nuMnskull -% hen it comes to business
and commerce! These are just ideas. I do not have the money 'to
back any of thBem up:"
1. Some years ago I stopped at the' Texaco station 6ff'I-10
and was swarmed by youngsters selling beautiful watermelons
for a dollar apiece. Watermelons in Publix down here cost $5.
Might not a big Farmer's Market be established near the Inter-
state to sell fresh produce? Perhaps this market might later in-
clude arts and crafts, of the sort that are being sold in Fernandi-
na and Apalachicola today. Heck, you might wind up selling
Burmese hill carvings and batiks from Indonesia, but at least
you wouldn't hate a Wal-Mart!
2. Tours could be led of Madison's churches and cemeteries
and historical points of interest. The Methodist cemetery near
Concord Baptist Churchis one of the prettiest in the state. Judge
McGeehee, who chaired the Secessionist Convention in 1861, is
buried in the south end of the county. The remains of a very old
Spanish Mission lie on land owned, I believe, by the Gil man Pa-
per Co. This might be a wonderful historic site, if permission to
visit it could be secured. "DeSOTO SLEPT HERE."
3. The Beggs Museum remains one of the most fascinating
and macabre places in all of Florida. With all this "CSI" interest
in corpses, people would pay to see all those coffins and tables.
4. Our lakes and ponds remain among the purest and most
unpolluted in the state. Couldn't fishing tours be organized?
There is nothing like sitting out on a pond in Madison in the ear-
ly morning, or late afternoon, with a fishing.pole. The peace just
laps around you.
5. Astronomers are nuts about clear skies and Madison has
some of the clearest and most unpolluted in Florida. I remember
stepping out of my grandmother's house as a child, in northern
Madison county, and seeing millions of stars, just millions. I
have never forgotten that night. I am fond of amateur astronomy.
and believe me, these people have disposable income and will

come and pay for stars, if you can find a nice wide field for them
to park in and set up their equipment. You can ask for advice,

6. Nature walks and history walks. The Mays Island Road is
one of the most beautiful, unvisited loops of history and culture
in all the stjte. Richard Mays, a signer of Florida's'original Con-
. situation, is buried 'in Cncord cemetery. A walking or bicy-
cling tour could end up with his grave.
7. U-Pick Heaven. Blueberries -are nowhere better than in P
Madison. If someone can add blackberries, can jellies and jams
be far behind? This might tie into the Farmer's Market. A sugar-
cane grinding in the fall, with a real mule and a real mill?

Sometimes Rats Get Caught

In Their Own Traps
As a concerned citizen,. I would like to tell the public of a
deed that w as done to me.
Around Febnruary 2, 2005, I1 had a complaint filed against me
at the building permits office. For a small room added to the
main structure, which the main structure had permits but the
small add on didn't.
I was put through a lot about this pennit wondering who had
called on me etc. I admitted to the building inspector that I had-
n't gotten a permit, but ask how2 and what I had to do to get it.;,
Several months went by and then I found out after xorn ing and
sweating and not know ing what I w\as going to do. not to men-,
tion the stress caused to my entire family .
I was later told by a good reliable source that there was a.
party and barbeque put on at a property behind me and we wiill
call the property owner behind me Howard and his friend Har-
ry! They got in touch with a county commissioner from, Lee,
Madison Florida and int ited him to the barbeque. We'will call
him Roy Ellis.
After the barbeque and party they sent him to take pictures
of my place and the room in question in which he did from
Howard's drive or lane behind me. And then turned it in to the
building department in Madison.
I believe in laws and justice, but what about privacy and pic-
tures being taken if the property whenever someone decides to
do so? And since when do county commissioners go out and
,taepicturyesan tunthem in to the building inspectors office?
And the area,was not even the commissioner's zone!!
I believe in my heart this was more than just about a build-
ing permit it was three people conspiring to get even with me for
getting rid of the one fellow we will call Harry from my proper-
ty and club. And they all three conspired a plan to get back 'at
me. And I'm sure all three fellow never though I %would find
them out on what they done.
I have since gotten my building permit and wondering what
these fellows will try next. I have also confronted Roy Ellis and
he admitted he had done the pictures and all and said he did it.
for the county, in which I feel is incorrect I said to him he had
not done it for the County, it was for Howard, and Harry. He
said, he was friends with Howard for over 30 years. (Bingo')
There is to bottom line.
I feet this commissioner is not truthful and in checking in a
little deeper on him in general, I have found this next time at the
courthouse, county commissioner Ellis brought up and voted for
his own road to be paved in Lee (se farm rd.), In my opinion it
looks-like some commissioners use this job for their own bene-
fit. But most of our commissioners are for the people and try to
help them. .
Do we really need this type of person as a commissioner or
decision maker in Madison County? You the people of Madison
should have the last say on roads to be pared in Madison. its
nour tax dollars paying the tab. and also on voting in or out
county commissioners. After all %%e all are tax payers and they
are public servants that should be there to help us all not to hurt
us. iSometimes rats get caught in there own trap..I
Thanks for Listening,
Gary Mack '
Commissioner Ellis asked the Board to re-visit the discus-
sion on road paving projects in the county and the list of eight
roads submitted for paving by Mr McClune earlier in-the meet-
ing. A motion was made by Commissioner Moore and seconded
by Commissioner Ellis to add NW Honey Lake Road (0.50 miles
and SW Odena Trail (0.25 miles) to the four roads already dis-.
cussed, NE Dephinium Drive (2.2 miles), NE Beulah Church
Road (3.0 miles), SE Farm Road (1.75 miles), and SW Fellhw-
ship Rd (2.0 miles), for paving at a cost of $1,126,752 arind
Placed in the 2005-2006 fiscal year budget. Motion carried 4-1
with ComnLissionr King opposed. .

What I Really Want

For Father's Day
Thanks kids for the neat tie, I might wear, or that wonderful
tool gadget, that I will use one time and leave on-the work bench.
Those shorts or nice, a little bright. I know you mean well, but
f I could have my. choice of gifts for father's day, this is what I
would d want.
I- remember well the day you were both born. I was the
proudest person on the face of the earth. I thought a Gift from
God, nothing could ever match that. I it arched as you learned to
crawl, then took those first little steps. It seemed only like a few
days, you were going on that first date, or to the prom. You
might not have know n it, but I cried. You never saw, the tears but
they were there. Men, at that time was not supposed to show
their emotions.
SAsh the time came for you to leave the nest and make a
family of your own, it was hard. I worried for you, but could
only trust that you would turn out ok. When you had kids of your
own. again I was proud,-for I knew that a little bit of me would
go on to the next generation.
What do I w ant for Father's da\? Only the love that when
you were small, \ou looked into mn face and said "I love You".,.
That is all I need. I wish I could ha\e the opportunity to tell my
dad that just one more time. .

The Job OfA Father

Is Being There

I didn't even know the man, but my heart almost burst with
pride- in him.. He was a United States Congressmnan. ini his second
term, and suddenly resigned that post because "I need to be with my
family." One of his sons had developed a serious illness, so Dad
went home.
He could have hired a nurse or cook or aide to assist his wife.
He could have moved his family to Washington. He could have set
up a system of relatives to sit by his son's'bedside. But no; he did
the unthinkable. He quit his job and look himself to the place he
needed to be.
I don't even recall his name, but that man's actions stand as a
firm monument of what a father should be. And what should a fa-
ther be? There.
I know that soldiers ahnd truckers and train engineers and pilots
have to travel for their living. As the daughter of a preacher. I un-'
derstand about dads who must be away sometimes. But all of those
vocations offer some time off; and that time is where the man de-
cides to be or not to be a father. ,
A man ants to go out and play golf every clear Saturday. A fa-
ther weighs that against the little girl who wants his company while
she combs Barbie's hair. He considers the ten-year-old boy who re-
quests help with his baseball swing. He looks at the tuckered-out
wife who has parented all week in his absence. And he declares a
family% boat outing with a cooler full of Dad-prepared sandwiches
for lunch. Everybod\ wins, but the big winner is Dad himself.
I know fathers who work extra hours so they can buy things for
their kids. Hey, you! Your kids don't care whether their jackets are
real leather or faux; they just care that you were there to hear about
their. day before they went to bed. In spite of the car commercials,
your kids don't care whether you drive them to the skating rink in
a Hummer or an Escort. They just care that you are there.
One of the great shames of our society is that so many children
are fatherless. In the past school year, I taught or w as in contact with
three young men who became fathers, and four young women who
became mothers. Only one of them was married. That means six
children will grow up without the nurturing influence of a father.
Check any stats you wish; you'll see that those fatherless babies are
destined to be poorer, in worse health, and more likely to commit a
crime or bear a an illegitimate baby than the one whose father is
there. The father makes a difference for the better.
If your father has taken you fishing, taught you to pitch,
plowed a garden while you hung onto his back overalls pockets,
showed you how to operate the outdoor fish fryer, reviewed your re-
port card with you, wrapped one arm around your shoulders as you
knelt in family prayer, cast you a stemn "sit still" look in church, dri-
ven you to Grandma's for the family reunion, explained how to use
a clutch and gearshift, scrambled eggs for Saturday morning break-
fast, and cuddled with your mother on the living room couch, then
thank him this Sunday. You have a prize of no small proportions.
On Sunday, let him know that you appreciate his presence. A
card, a letter, an email whatever. You can express that apprecia-
tion in flowing poetic terms or simply .with the message, "Thanks
for being there." .
Fathers are important. They:set the tone for the home. They es-
tablish the pattern of life for the family. They set the example for
their sons and daughters. But only if they are there.
Here's to all the present fathers may your day be blessed in
every way.

Add More Fruits And

Vegetables To Your Plate
Make room for fresh fruits and vegetables in your kitchen.
June is the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month, the beginning of an
abundant season of summer produce. You can find them in the
grocery stores, at roadside stands and u-picks. These foods not
only add color to your meals, they are low in calories and high
in nutrients.
At a time when we keep hearing about reducing food con-
sumption, the good news is, you need to add more fruits .and
vegetables to your plates. The new Dietary Guidelines empha-
size more because of the role these foods play in reducing the
risk of developing chronic disease, including heart disease, cer-
tain types of cancer and type II diabetes. Research shows how-
ever, most Americans do not get enough in their diet. Adults
need to get five cups of fruit and vegetables each day and active
teens need more.
Increasing your intake of fruits and vegetables is easier than
you think. Small changes over time will get you to the intake
you need to be. Start by adding 100% juice to your breakfast,
then replace empty calorie snacks with fruit.
When the weather is hot, cooked foods are not always ap-
petizing; summer is a great time to include a salad with your
meals. They are quick to make, require little preparation and are
an easy way to get more vegetables into your meals. Start with
a leafy, green base there is so much available now besides the
traditional iceberg try boston, romaine or spinach. Cut up a va-
riety of colorful vegetables; try summer squash or turnips in ad-
dition to your regular salad ingredients. For a change, add pieces
of fruits like Granny Smith apples, mandarin oranges or berries,
top with a sprinkle of cheese and chopped nuts to add an inter-
esting flavor. Other summer favorites like three bean salad,
potato salad or cole slaw make a cool side dish.
Take a look at your eating habits and being replacing them
with healthier choices. When dining out, replace that fried side
dish with a salad, vegetables or fruit. Many restaurants now
have alternative choices to fries. It is a matter of making the de-
cision to ask for the substitute.
If traveling by car, pack your own sandwiches and fresh
fruit in a cooler. Not only are you able to control what you eat,
but you also save time and money. Keep individual single serv-
ings of fruit and vegetables at work for a quick snack instead of
candy. Small changes over time add up and before you know it,
you will have the recommended 5 cups of fruits and vegetables
every day.

Man Arrested For Violating

Domestic Violence Injunction
A Madison man was arrested for violation of a domestic vi-
olence injunction on Thursday, June 9.
According to a Madison. Police Department report, Patrol-
man Joel Oquendo was dispatched to Macon Street in reference
to harassment. When he arrived, he made contact %% ith Terrance
L. Williams, 28, who said he had been served with the injunc-
tion and to just go ahead and take him to jail.
When Oquendo looked at the paperwork, he verified that
Williams was not allowed on the property.
Williams was put into Oquendo's vehicle.
The victim said that she wanted Williams to remove his
property out of her residence, but she wanted a law officer pre--
sent, as the injunction ordered.
Williams had come to get his property, but he reportedly did

not abide by the injunction.
Williams was arrested and transported to the Madison
County Jail.

This Sunday is Father's Day. It is a good holiday,
My father died in 1994.
Father's Day has been different since then. I still enjoy the
day, even though I have no dad, since I am a father and grand-
father, and can wish my son and son-in-law a "Happy Father's
Day," and my kids can say nice things to me.
In addition to being a great builder and carpenter, my dad
was a writer. Iis articles and poems, published in newspapers
and magazines, were a blessing to many, and he had a book of
his poems and humorous "sayings" published about 30 years
He once wrote a very moving tribute to his dad, also a
builder. As a special father's Day event, I want to share it with
you. I think it fits him as much as it did his father.
My father wrote:
My dad several years ago.
Dad was just an ordinary American. He never had any cities
named after him, although he helped build a lot of cities. He paid
his way through life with a hammer and saw, then went his way.
to the Other World to build those many mansions for those who
follow. He was a practical sort of fellow, so if he doesn't like his
particular corner of heaven, he will just get out his framing
square and remodel it.
What caused him to die? Well, maybe it was just his turn, or
maN be the\ needed more master craftsmen in the Hereafter.
Like most of the Irish, Dad was inclined to be opinionated .
rather apt to take a stand and inclined'to be vehement in defense
of that stand. He may have been on the wrong side sometimes,
but there was never anm doubt w% which side he was on. Even the
men who disliked him could find no fault with his work.
Dad was a typical builder.- one of those men \\ho put the
materials in place. After the engineers and architects hat e gotten
their dreams on paper, the man with the saw% takes oer. He is the
one who makes or mars the dream.
Dad's material rewards were modest, although he turned out
millions of dollars worth of work. Like most builders, he sowed
for another to reap. But it must have been a great satisfaction to
him to know that in any town he ever lived in, he could walk'
down any street and see the fruits of his labor. And he built bet-
ter than he knew, because his work survives him.
History will not remember the builders who made America.
But it will remember America long after the men who built it
have departed. The real builders, the men who plug away at it all
their lives, are America's heritage of the past, her strength of the
present, her hope. of the future.
When a man builds anything, hie mustoIf necessit\ incorpo-
rate a part of his personality, in the work. Hence, a strong man
cannot build anything weak, or a weak .man anm thing strong.
Your only hope of building anything good is to hire a good man
to build it. And it my book, there was more inate nobility, more
of the stuff that heroes are made of in this imperfect, uneducat-
ed builder than in the ninety and nine who thank God they "are
not as this publican."
So you go ahead, Dad, and build those.mansions up there,
and we'll be along after awhile and live in them.

Thank God My Lord Isn't

Brought Down By An Earthquake
The Japanese warlord stood defiantly over the former object
of his affection and aimed his arrow at it. With all the anger in
his heart, spewing forth out of (he venom of his heart, he shot
"That's what you get for not even being able to take care of
your own house," he said.
The man had placed all of his faith and all of his praise into
a useless statue. He had erected the statue, after one of his great
battles. An earthquake toppled it to the ground, leaving the war-
lord in despair.
So many people, even today, place their faith in objects, in
things made by man, not by God. Even God-made objects (such
as human beings and animals) fail, but God Himself does not.
As Christians, we serve a Living God, not a statue. We may
not be able to see Him but we can see His works and His mira-

Commissioners Myra Valentine and Judy McGhee moved to
use the second option, with Schnitker and City Manager Tom
Moffses ironing out an agreement with Gordon. The board ap-
proved the motion.
Rae Pike of the Chapel presented a picture of the Burton-
Fraleigh House on Shelby Street, which the business wants to
move onto a site behind the present Chapel location. "We plan
to restore it and turn it into a five-bedroom, five-bath bed-and-
breakfast," she explained. She asked for release of a strip of
right-of-way along Horry Street to use as space for the building
to avoid cutting down trees. "It is a big house, and we need just
a small area to give us room to set it there," she said.
Moffses suggested that the city release 15-20' of property as
a continuation of a strip already released as part of the Chapel
property at the same price. Evidence of a former residence on
the site includes a walkway extending to the sidewalk, the area
that Pike asked for. The commissioners approved the release
Pike said the house move will take place in July.

Personnel Development Services Spotlight...



Each week. the Madison Enterprise-Recorder is featuring a spotlight on Personnel Development Services (formerly the Madi-
son-Jefferson Association of Retarded Citizens) and the MCHS's ESE transition program. Our spotlight this week shines on Jackie Miller:

"The customers and the employees all love her. People come
in here and ask, 'Where is Jackie and her smile?'" said Shirley
Hicks, the manager of the Madison Waffle House, she was
speaking of Jackie Miller, a Personnel Development Services-
placed employee.
Melissa Burke, a PDS job coach, who works with the high
school's transition program, knew she had made the right con-
nection when she tried to place Jackie at the Waffle House. Hicks
knew immediately that she loved Jackie, and the 18-year-old,
who will be a senior in high school next year, was hired as a host-
ess on weekends at the restaurant.
"She's an excellent hostess," Hicks said. "She's just a beau-
tiful girl."
Jackie said that she loves her job at Waffle House.
"I like helping the people," she said. "It's fun. I've met in-
teresting people. I'm popular here."
"Jackie could actually make Waffle House a career," Hicks
said, noting the many opportunities afforded by the company.
"She may actually be one of the first to train someone like her to
work here."

Tim Ressler, the administra-
tor at PDS, said of employers
in the community, such as
Waffle House, "I think the
employers of the community
deserve a huge amount of
credit. They are a great re-
source for us. We want to
serve their needs, as well as
Ressler and the staff of PDS
believe that Mary Coody is an
unsung hero.
"'She really deserves to be
recognized for her years of
placing students in jobs," he
Shirley Hicks said that her
. first experience with PDS has
been a positive one and that
she will continue working
with the group, as long as
Burke can keep recommend-
ing students down the line.
"There are employers like
Shirley out there, who aren't
afraid to take a chance on stu-

dents like Jackie," Burke noted.
"I really love working with the students," Burke said, enthu-
siastically. "Seeing how happy they are really says it all for'the
type of work I'm in. I look forward to helping more students find
employment through businesses throughout the community."

it offers for both students and adults, please call 973-4614. PDS

I around Lee
Sothelma Thompson
yesi Columnst ..
Part I of

I was first introduced to the big town of Lee during the 'roar-
ing twenties' when my stepfather, Bob Bembry, decided to return to
his roots. At that time no one had ever heard of the boll weevil and
King Cotton ruled in the south. So, Daddy dreamed of becoming a
successful farmer.
In 1926 and in the second grade, my life consisted of swim-
ming in Lake Apopoka (the front porch of our house was literally in
the water), fishing for minnows for bait while sitting on the porch,
enjoying fresh oranges from the trees all around us, going to silent
movies on Saturday afternoon those Western serials were spell-
binding and watching the 'grown-ups' dance the Charleston to
such tunes from the Victrola (with the dog) as 'Ida Red, Ida Blue'.
Mother's first name was Ida. They also played cards in the evenings
on the bed under mosquito netting. Daddy made good money tend-
ing the orange grove, rent was free, food with Mother's good cook-
ing plentiful, living on the lake was great and life was about insert
mosquitos perfect. We co-existed peacefully with the lake's alli-
gator population each respecting its own territory boundaries.
So, if I had known what culture shock was, I'm sure I would
have experienced it when we arrived on the farm. With income
suddenly non-existent the last paycheck used to pay formoving
(Daddy had already made one trip to arrange for a share-cropper
farm) and other necessities there would be no more movies, no or-
anges fresh from the tree, no daily cooling dips in the lake, not even
the availability of fresh lettuce and tomatoes nor money for the in-
gredients of Mother's delicious lemon meringue pie.
However, we all soon adjusted happily to our new environ-
ment. I was enrolled in Lee Junior High and entered into a life-long
love affair with that grand old school with its teachers dedicated to
its 'hallowed halls of learning' where students were really taught,
not baby sat. My first trip to the town of Lee gave me another rea-
son to fall in love for life. Though far from being anything like the
(then) small city of Apopka, the big town of Lee had a Norman
Rockwell type of charm. I consider the 2-story Whitty Drug Store
with its old-fashioned soda fountain, front porch and china berry
tree in front the centerpiece of the town's charm. I loved to sit on
the porch with my nickel Coca-Cola (they weren't Cokes then) and
watch the activity at the depot across the street.
The train picking up the mail never stopped for it -- the mail
sack hung on a hook by the track and was snared as the train rum-
bled by. On a few occasions, I was allowed to sit in the waiting.
room of the depot where I was fascinated by the telegraph operator
and his clicking keys. The long platform behind him was where
freight trains (which did stop) unloaded the merchants and farmers
supplies and picked up such things as cotton, lumber (Lee had a
sawmill and at one time there were two) and caskets. The latter
were stored upstairs in Whitty's next to the two doctors offices!.
During the 'boom' time of the '20's, America was enjoying a
resurgence i..', the tragedy of both World War I and the in-
fluengza.pidemic, v.hich killed so.many 9pf its,people. In the same
block as. Whini's \%ere three grocery stores, (one of them was
Kent's) a millinery (Koon's) and a post office; the latter was housed
in the home of Vesta Blanton, postmistress, and her sister and as-
sistant, Mattie Rains. To Whitty's, where Lola was idolized by all
the children as she handed out the penny candy and nickel ice cream
cones and where Shelly was the final authority on all things medi-
cinal -Jhe was not only a licensed pharmacist but had the authority
to write perscriptions farmers wives came for advice and to stock
up on Black-Draught, castor oil, calomel, S & S tonic and the sul-
phur which they.mixed with molasses for spring cleansing of all the
children' blood. The Lee mayor and council also met upstairs
Behind Whitty's slightly to the west was the calaboose, used
occasionally for a drunk to 'sleep it off'. Crime was a seldom used
word. In the middle of Main Street, the town pump was one of the
most popular spots in Lee the farmers hitched their mules and
'wagons there and after unloading their cotton at Clib Black's gin
during harvest and their corn to be ground into meal and grits at the
grist mill where the miller kept a portion as payment discussed
their crops, the weather, politics and caught up on the latest gossip.
Oh, yes, gossip was not limited to their wives. Men would stand
for hours on one leg with the other one propped on a wagon x% heel
or leaning across the mules' back or just squatting as they listened
to the others' tall tales. At least, women usually sat down to enjoy
their gossip time.
South of Whitty's and the pump were besides the cotton gin -

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) recovered the
remains of a male panther that
was struck by a car on 1-95
gtarly Saturday morning on the
Flagler and St. Johns County
FWC biologist Dave
Turner picked up the cat's car-
cass and delivered it to the
Wildlife Research Laboratory
in Gainesville where re-
searchers.conducted a necrop-
sy Monday morning. .

FWC wildlife veterinarian
Dr. Mark Cunningham said,
"The panther, known to scien-
tists as UCFP74 (Un-Collared
Florida Panther), appeared to
be a healthy,, three-year-old
adult and weighed approxi-
mately 125 pounds. The ani-
mal had all its claws and teeth
and was in good condition."
Cunningham said he
found no tattoos or transpon-'
der chip on the cat, which in--
dicates scientists had not en-
countered the panther previ-

ously. However, he said the
panther had suffered severe
trauma to his back, which un-
doubtedly would have dam-
aged the chip if there were
"At any rate, the radi-
ographs we took Monday af-
ternoon did. not disclose the
presence of a microchip,"
Cunningham said.

Lng EmployE
mg ,4

By Rachel Kudelko
The school-year is over and now is the time
that teens look for summer jobs. Most of you will
look for paying employment so that you can earn
so me extra money and some will look to gain vol-
unteer hours for scholarship requirements. Either
way, having a summer jobis a great way for you to
stay active in between school years. Summer jobs
help you learn new skills and responsibility. Before
you start looking for a job there are a few things you
should know.
The US Department of Labor defines child la-
bor laws for those under 18 years of age. The laws
are available online at http//www.youthmles.dolgov/.
These laws specify what times you can work, how
long you can "ork every day, and how long you can
work every' week. These laws also specify what
kind of jobs you can do.
The State of Florida also has its own child la-

bor laws which conform to (and in some cases are
more strict than) all of the national laws. These laws
can be viewed online at
No matter what job you decide to take this
summer, it is important that you stay safe. Certain
jobs, like being a lifeguard or working on your par-
ents' farm, have risks. Do some research and get to
know what equipment or chemicals you'll be work-
ing around. The Occupational Safety and Health'
Administration has developed a website specifical-
ly for teens working in summer jobs.- You can visit
this website athttp'/
merjybs for more information.
If you are a teen interested in volunteering
this summer, there are many opportunities aail-
able through 4-H at the Madison County Exten-
sion Office. For more information, call (850)

"The age fits for a 'dis-
persing' male. This cat proba-
bly wandered up from south
Florida looking for females,"
Cunningham said. "This is the
age when dispersing males
can, and often do, travel far
and wide in search of new ter-
ritories. A young male from
the Big Cypress would be c--a-
pable of reaching this area
during dispersal."
Panthers sometimes do
stray north of the Caloosa-

hatchee River.
"This is the first time in
more than 20 years that we've
had a confirmed panther in
this area," Chris Belden, U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service biol-
ogist said. "In the mid-1980s,
we documented two males in
the St. Johns Marsh from Indi-
an River County to Flagler
Scientists tracked a radio-
collared male panther just
southwest of Orlando back in
2000. Another panther died in
a collision with a vehicle at
Tampa in 2003.

"Genetic tests will be per-
formed on samples taken from
UCFP74 to unveil the cat's
origin, but these tests general-
ly take some time,' Cunning-
ham said. "The bones and hide
will be deposited at the Flori-
da State. Museum of Natural
According to. Cunning-
ham. approximately five to 10
panthers are killed on south
Florida roads annually.

NASA Launches

Telescope Balloon
NASA launched a scientific helium balloon from northern
Sweden on Sunday with a telescope for studies of star formation,
a spokesman for the Esrange launch pad said.
The launch is the first in a series of giant balloons which
NASA has organized to transport bulky payloads such as astro-
nomical telescopes used in astrophysical experiments and re-
search on cosmic radiation.
The westward flight from Esrange to Alaska will' test
NASA's new long-lasting balloon vehicle and carries a 5,940-
pound telescope at an altitude of 25 miles for six to nine days.
"Never before has such a huge balloon been launched from
Europe with such a heavy instrument," Esrange spokeswoman
Johanna Bergstrom-Roos said.
Mark Devlin, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania
who is leading the studies, said the telescope "will address some
of the most important cosmological and galactic questions re-
garding the formation and evolution of stars, galaxies and clus-
The balloon is 396 feet high and 462 feet in diameter. It is
made of advanced materials and uses a pumpkin-shaped design
to achieve flights up to 100 days. It holds up to 1.3 million cubic
yards of helium.
The flights are being conducted by NASA and the National
Scientific Balloon Facility, based in Palestine, Texas, in cooper-
ation with the Swedish Space Corp.
About 450 scientific balloons have been launched since
flights started in 1974 from Esrange, about 770 miles north of the
capital, Stockholm.

Analyst Charged

In Pentagon Leaks
A Pentagon analyst has been indicted on charges he leaked
classified military information to employees of a pro-Israel
group, according to court papers made public Monday in Vir-
The six-count indictment charges that Lawrence A. Franklin
conspired to disclose national defense and classified information
to people not entitled to receive it, including information about
potential attacks on U.S. forces in Iraq. One count accuses him of
conspiring to communicate the information to an agent and rep-
resentative of a foreign government.

Franklin, a 58-year-old Air Force Reserve colonel who
once worked for the Pentagon's No. 3 official, pleaded innocent
to all counts Monday at a hearing in federal court in Alexandria,
U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III set a Sept. 6 trial.
The indictment identifies two unindicted coconspirators
who were employees of a Washington lobbying organization.
The men previously have been identified as executives of the
American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a lobbying organi-
zation influential on U.S.-Israeli relations.
FBI agents twice last year searched AIPAC offices. It was
once thought AIPAC might be a target of the long-running fed-
eral investigation, but that's not the case, people familiar with
the probe have said.

Aruba Cops

Release Two Suspects
Prosecutors in Aruba have released two former hotel securi-
ty guards who were the first men detained in the disappearance
of an Alabama honors student, and one proclaimed his inno-
"I'm very happy but also disappointed," said Antonius
"Mickey" John, as he was freed by police in Aruba late Monday.
"I knew from day one that I.was innocentt.,

Authorities are still holding three other suspects three
young men who took 18-year-old Natalee Holloway to a beach
early in the morning on May 30th the day she disappeared.
The release of John; 30, and.Abraham Jones. 28, came be-
fore a judge reviewed a motion for the release filed Monday, said
John's lawyer Noraina Pietersz. And it came the day after the
missing girl's mother said she believed the former security
guards, who were detained on June 5th, are innocent.
Beth Holloway Twitty said Sunday that she does think the
"other suspects do know what happened to her daughter, who was
in Arbua with other teens on a trip to celebrate their high school
Twitty has also said that if she does not see results in the in-
vestigation 'soon, she might start to- believe that authorities are
trying to protect the three young men.
"All three of those boys know what happened to her," said
Twitty in an interview in her room at the Holiday Inn, the same
hotel where Natalee was stayingbefore she disappeared on May
30. "They all know what they did with her that night."'
Holloway Twitty declined to say what she thought happened
or whether she believes her daughter is still alive.
The teen vanished hours before she was expected at the.air-
,portfollwing a five-day trip 16 the Dutch Caribbean island with
124 classmates and seven chaperones celebrating their gradua-
tion from Mounitatn Brook High School, near Birmingham, Ala.
Her U.S. passport and packed bags were found in her hotel room.
It has now been two weeks since Natalee Holloway van-
ished. There is no sign of her, and rumors outnumber hard facts,
reports CBS News correspondent Kelly. Cobiella. Reports
"'swirled over the weekend that one of the three suspects.admitted
"something bad happened," that the 17-year-old confessed, that
a suspect led police to a body. They all turned out to be false.
The three suspects still in custody the 17-year-old son of a
Dutch justice ministry official and two. Surinamese brothers -
were detained Thursday. Lawyers for all five suspects picked up
in connection with the case have insisted their clients are inno-
cent, and no one has been formally charged.
The mother of the 17-year-old suspect told CBS News her
son had nothing to do with it. Anita Van Der Sloot says her son
is a star student and a good athlete. \\ ith a wide circle of friends.
She doesn't remember him talking about Natalee Holloway.
Van Der Sloot also said her son wanted to help with the
search, but was advised against

"It drove him crazy that he
couldn't do anything because
of the investigation, and he
wanted to go out and look,, and
he's still very positive that
she's alive, and she's some-
where," Anita van der Sloot
Prime Minister. Nelson
Obuder went on national tele-
vision Sunday night to reaf-
firm Aruba's commitment to
solving the case. Authorities,
"are doing all that is possible
to resolve what happened as.
soon as possible," he said.
But Holloway Twitty, 44,
said she was not satisfied. "I'm
not getting any answers," she
said. "I don't feel any further
along than the day I got here."
Composed but clearly
tired, she said she had lost .10
pounds since the search began
and was having trouble sleep-
ing. The preschool speech
pathologist spoke of drawing
strength from her deep faith in
God and the support of rela-
tives and concerned Arubans.
The Dutch suspect and the
Surinamese brothers have told
police they brought Natalee
Holloway to a lighthouse be-
side the island's Arisha Beach,
but didn't get out of the car.
The brothers, Satish

The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 71

Kalpoe, 18, and Deepak Kalpoe, 21, also told police that Natalee.
and the Dutch teen had been kissing in the back seat of the car.
According to a lawyer for the brothers, they say they dropped lter
off at her hotel about 2 a.m. and last saw her being apptoact'd
by a man in a security guard uniform before they drove off.
Holloway Twitty said that she herself reviewed .secudty
videos from the Holiday Inn and has concluded that the youihg
men never brought her daughter back to the hotel.
"That story was a lie," she said.
Cobiella reports that not a single frame of security vid4 at
the Holiday Inn shows her coming back.
Investigators have said-they are pursuing all leads, and 4u-
ber told a news conference last week that "nobody stands a. e
the law."
Islanders and tourists attended church ser ices Sund, to
pray for the teen.
Holloway Twitty said she will not leave Aruba until her
daughter is found.
"I will not be satisfied until they give me back my daughter.
I want her and I want her now."

S. Korea, U.S. Split Oit

N. Korea
President Bush said Friday that he and South Korean P, si-
dent Roh Moo-hyun intend to speak with "one voice" on the, ir-
gency of getting North Korea to rejoin stalled six-nation tallk on
its nuclear program. But Roh said some differences remaiorin
approach. 1 :.;
"South Korea and the United States share, the same goa' "and
that is a Korean peninsula with no nuclear %weapons." Mr. Bush.said.
North Korea's nuclear program was the top item on the lgen-
da of the two leaders in their Oval Office meeting.
Generally, South Korea favors more engagement \\ ith the
North, while the United States has staked out a harder line pdsi-
tion. The Bush administration wants China and South Korea to
do more to persuade Pw ong' ang to return to the talks, which have
been deadlocked for nearly a year.
Roh said theremwere some remaining differences between his
country and the United States.
"There are one or tw o minor issues, but Fm certain we' will
be able to work them out with dialogue," Roh said.
"We'll continue to work to have one \ oice." Mr. Bush saild.
North Korea has sent mixed signals on %\ whether it will retim
to the talks, which also include the United States. China, South
Korea, Japan and Russia.
Earlier this week, North Korean diplomats indicated' they
were willing to rejoin the talks, but set no date. However, a North
Korean official later boasted that the communist regime already
has a nuclear stockpile, and was making more weapons.
Mr. Bush said that despite such talk, he was hopeful Jhat
North Korean leader Kim Jong I1 could be persuaded to send a
delegation back to the talks and to abandon its nuclear ambitions.
"The (Soudi KoreA) pritdent4pd Il4th agree the six--pir-
ty talks are essential to saying to Mr. Kim Jong 11 that he ought to
give up his weapons, and mak-
ing it very clear to him that the
way to join the community of ,
nations is to listen to China and ,
South Korea and Japan and ':
Russia and the United States, '
and that is to give up nuclear C ll
