months, after Paz crashed their car into a tree off the Val-
dosta Highway a few miles north of the Madison city lim-
its. (Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Janet Schrader, No-

One driver, a passenger
and two children were lucky to
escape injury November 28,
when the driver, Virginia Paz
of Madison, ran her car off the
Valdosta Highway and struck a
tree. According to the FHP re-
port by Trooper Charles Swin-
dle, Paz was heading north on
CR-145 only several miles
outside of the city limits, when
she ran off the road on the
northbound shoulder. Swin-
dle's report then said, Paz
overcorrected to the left,
which caused her car to travel
across both lanes of CR-145
and into the southbound ditch.
She then hit a tree with the
front end of the car.
Two children were in the
car with Paz, Jose 0. Paz, age
three and Christina A. Paz, age
11 months. Another passenger,
Jose M. Paz, was also in the
vehicle. Madison County EMS
was on the scene, but no in-
juries were received by any of
the car's occupants. The FHP
report by Swindle estimated
the damage to the vehicle at
$10,000. All occupants were
using safety equipment and the
car's airbag did not deploy.

Scars, Mars And Beau ty
I saw my friend, Dorothy Knitter; at
O'Neal's the other day. She had some exciting
news to tell me. She hadn't spoken to her
daughter, Lynda, in years, but she had finally
found her. She spoke to both LN nda 'and to Lyn-
da's son. Dorothy was excited as she told me
the news.
Dorothy is one of the kind people who
make Madison the warm, friendly community
that it is. She isquick with a smile and a kind
word for everyone whom she meets.
There are a lot of kind people out there that
you will meet if you just open your eyes and
look. I get frustrated when I meet people from
other places, who:move here and want to re-
make Madison into the place that they ran away
from (or were they just kicked out?) I love
meeting.the people who lo e Madison and its
people, regardless of any niars or scars that the,
folks might have.,
Some of the kindest people I know have
some of the hardest times I know, but they go
through life with a smile on their face. It's not.
just the people like my sister, Abbie, whom I've
written about time and again, It's not just the
poor people who have problems. I've also met-
wealthy people who have a smile for the %w orld.
but they, have pain in their hearts or in their
Maybe you'see people everyda\. you pass
them and every once, in a while, you wave, but
do you stop and speak with them? Do you get
to know them? Do you get to know their beau-
ty? Do, you get to know .what caused the scars
on then? Do you get to know the emotional.
pain that has marred them from enjoying life to
its fullest? Do you ever get to know where the
smile on their face comes from?
Now I can't speak for Dorothy, but I do
suppose that if you ask her why she's so happy,
the answer will not only be about her long lost
daughter and her grandson being found, I think
she muay als6el'iou hbbut Je'Mb us being the aia-
son she has joy in her heart. *, ,

Merry Christmas to ALL,
I received the following via email and would like for everyone to read it. Whoever the au-
thor was put it very succinctly. I know it's long, but well worth reading.
I do wish each and everyone of you a VERY MERRY AND BLESSED CHRISTMAS!!!
I love God and am not ashamed to say it.

Letter From Jesus About Christmas...
Dear Children,
It has come to my attention that many of you are upset that folks are taking My name out of
the season. Maybe you've forgotten that I wasn't actually born during this time of the year and that
it was. some of your predecessors who decided to celebrate My birthday on what was actually a
time of pagan festival. Although, I do appreciate being remembered anytime.,
How I personally feel about this celebration can probably be most easily understood by those
of you who have been blessed with children of your own. I don't care what you call the day. If
you want to celebrate My birth, just GET ALONG AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
Now, having said that let Me go on. If it bothers you that the toW n in w\\hich\ ou live doesn't
allow a scene depicting My birth, then just get rid of a couple of Santas and snow men and put in
a small Nativity scene on your own front lawn. If all My followers did&that there w ou Idn't be any
need for such a scene on the town square because there w would be man\ of them all around town.'
Stop iw worrying about the fact that people are calling the tree a holiday tree, instead of a Christ-
mas tree. It was I who made all trees. You can remember Me anytime you see any tree. Decorate
a grape vine if you wish:
I actually spoke of that one in a teaching, explaining who I am :in relation to you and what
each of our tasks Were. If you have forgotten that one, look up John 15: 1 - 8.
If you want to give Me a present in remembrance of M' birth here is my wish list. Choose
something from it:
.1. Instead of writing protest letters objecting to the way My birthday is being celebrated.
write letters of love and hope to soldiers aw a\ from home. They are terribly afraid and lonely this
time.of year. I know. they tell Me all the time. ,
2. Visit someone in a nursing home. You don't have to know them personally. They just need
to know that someone cares about them.
3. Instead of writing George complaining about the %wording on the cards his staff sent out
this year. %h bh don't you write and tell him that you'll be praying for him and his familythis year.
Then follow up. It will be nice hearing from you again.
4. Instead of giving your.children a lot of gifts you can't.afford and they don't need, spend
time with them. Tell them the story of My birth,and why I came to live with you down here. Hold
them in your arms and remind them that I love them.
5. Pick someone that has hurt you in the past and forgive him or her.
6. Did you know that someone in your town will attempt to take their own life this season
because they feel so alone and hopeless? Since you don't know who that person is, try giving
everyone you meet a warm smile; it could make the difference.
7. Instead of nit picking about what the retailer in your town calls the holiday, be patient with,
the people who work there. Give them a warm smile and a kind w ord. Even if they aren't allowed
to wish you a "Merry Christmas", that doesn't keep you from wishing them one. Then stop shop-
ping,there on Sunday. If the store didn't makq so much money on that day they'd close and let their
employees spend the da\ at home w\'ith their tailie. ,
" '8. If'ydu'really want to make a difference, support a'"si'o a- especially one who takes
My love and Good News to those who have never heard My name.
9. Here's a good one. There are individuals and whole families in your town who not only will
have no "Christmas" tree, but neither will they have any presents to give or receive. If you don't
know them, buy some food and a few gifts and give them to the Salvation Army or some other
charity which believes in Me and they will make the delivery for you.
10. Finally, if you want to make a statement about your belief in and loyalty to Me, then be-
have like a Christian. Don't do things in secret that you wouldn't do in My presence. Let people
know by your actions that you are one of mine.
Don't forget; I am God and can take care of Myself. Just love Me and do what I have told you
to do. I'll take care of all the rest. Check out the list above and get to work; time is short. I'll help'
you, but the ball is now in your court. And do have a most blessed Christmas with all those whom
you love and remember ~~



How To Gift Shop

Without The Shop
Last year, my daughter and her long-time
man friend got married. Among the toasters, .-i
towels, and picture frames, they received two
very unusual gifts. Larry got a beehive and
Mary received rabbits.
"Okay, what are you talking about?" I
you're asking right about now. So I'll tell you.
'My sister and her husband 'gav'e the happy cou-
ple gifts that went somewhere else. They do-,
nated a beehive and the rabbits through Heifer
Mary giggled with delight, she just adores
soft, fuzzy things. And know ing that the rabbits \
would help pull some Third World family out
of poverty just added to the happiness.
Larry quietly cried. "How did you know?" ` ,
he asked my sister.
"Know what?" she replied.
"That my father and I used to tend to bee- o
hives when I was little. I haveri't been near one
since he died."
" My sister had not known; not even Mary
knew. But no gift could have been more ap- !
propriate. For the past year. some family has
increased their standard of living because of a
those bees.
For the same occasion, I received a sheep.
A family (possibly Navajo) has sold the wool,
butchered the offspring, and generally been,,
better off because of my sheep.
In one of the poorer African nations, a
young girl received a goat. The milk and
cheese, plus stud fees, plus baby goats helped
her family survive. At age 20, that goat paid
her way to America to attend college. Now she
is back home with her education helping her
entire community.
All this incredible good and satisfaction
without darkening the doorstep df-a shop that
started to play "Jingle Bells" the day before ,.
When you choose a gift from Heifer Inter-
national, your friend or relative will receive a
notice telling about it and describing the results
from chickens, water buffalo, calves, and, yes,
beehives. Training comes with the gift.
Since 1944, this organization has helped
over seven million families in 125 countries. I
am so proud my sheep is fighting hunger some-
Perhaps you are in a similar condition to
mine: I am not physically able to go shopping
this year. But I can select meaningful gifts at
www.heifer.org, (800) 422-0474, or Heifer In-
ternational, 1 World Avenue, Little Rock,
Arkansas, 72202. Their nice calendar is item
#NL2007, ($13 plus $4.50 s+h).
Regular readers know that I do not cus-
tomarily promote businesses in this column.
However this one has my heart, and provides a ;i
way for the homebound to share lasting joy
during the holidays.
THink about it. You'll be glad you made it
a part of your life.

It's Time for Medicare-D Enrollment
Just when you thought Medicare -D. enrollment was over,
it's back! The new Medicare prescription service bean earlier
this year with a deadline of May 15th for Medicare eligible se-
niors to select aplan. It was confusing for many because of the
options available. 1 MIanN Seniors made the deadline and select-
ed a prescription plan.
Under Medicare-D, Seniors have the opportunity to change
prescription plans once a year. Enrollment dates to change or
enroll are November 15 - December 31, 2006. If you switch
plans your new coverage begins in January 2007. Florida lost
a few, providers, but gained 8 new providers and 25 new pre-
scriptioin plans.
Madison County Extension Service is participating in a
program through the University of Florida IFAS/Extension. We
can help you navigate the NMedicare-D website to identify pre-
scription plans available to Madison County residents. This

your personal prescriptions.

Buchanan presented a letter, signed by Randy Buchanan,
chairman of the church's administrative board, and Eugene-
Williams, president of the church's Board of Trustees. The letter
told of a unanimous vote at the church's administrative board
meeting to request speed-reduction devices on the newly paved
road in front of the church.
Bobby Joe Buchanan told the commission that the church
was afraid that a small child could be hit by one of the speeding
motorists. He said that the church had erected barricades but in-
dicated that the barricades are poor ways to get speeders to re-
duce their speed. He said that one motorist had knocked down
one barricade and gone around another while the ladies of the
church and children of the church were at a function on church
Later in the meeting, after Public Works Superintendent Jer-
ry McClune arrived, the board voted unanimously on a motion
by newly elected County Commissioner Wayne Vickers to in-
stall speed bumps.
Commissioner Ricky Henderson seconded Vickers' motion.

Medicaid Provider Arrested
For Illegally Billing Elderly,,
Disabled Services:
Attorney General Charlie Crist today announced that a Tal-
lahassee Medicaid provider was arrested on charges of grand
theft. .Titilayo I. Dokun, the owner and chief executive officer of
Capital City Area Care, was charged with illegally billing Med-
icaid for services that either were not provided or were fraudu-
lently billed to a waiver program the elderly and disabled pa-.
tients did not qualify for. Dokun is believed to have defrauded
the Florida Medicaid program out. of more than $100,000.
Crist's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit began investigating
Dokuni, 43, and her company in O'ctober after receiving infor-
mation from the Agency for Health Care Administration. Inves-
tigators discovered that fraudulent billing claims had been filed
through the Home and Community Based Adult waiver service
program, a Medicaid program that provides home and coommu-
nity-based services to eligible recipients. Doktn's company has
at least five care givers who go into the homes of their patients
and cook for them, perform light housekeeping tasks and pro-
vide other basic companion services.
"Medicaid exists to help our neediest residents receive the
care they need," said Crist. "We will not permit a Medicaid
provider to steal from the people who need the services or from
the citizens of the state of Florida."
Further investigation revealed that not only was Dokun
billing Medicaid for services to patients who were not enrolled
in the waiver program, but in some cases she billed the program
for services that were never provided. Crist's investigators be-
lieve Dokun was electronically depositing the Medicaid pay-
ments into bank accounts owned by herself or by Capital City
'Area Care. To date, $5,500 has been recovered and the investi-
gation is ongoing. r
Dokun is currently being held at the Leon County jail. She
is charged with one count of grand theft, a first-degree felony. If
convicted, she faces up to 30 years in prison and fines of
$10,000. Dokun will be prosecuted by the State Attorney's Of-
fice for the Second Judicial Circuit.
A copy of Dokun's arrest warrant is available at:

Ten People Sent To Jail Madison County...

For Cultivating Marijuana
Seven elaborate indoor marijuana cultivation operations in
two counties were located and 10 people sent to jail this week.
Columbia County had five locations - four that had mature
marijuana plants ready for harvest and one with an empty grow
In Suwannee County, two residences were located with ma-
ture marijuana plants and a third site believed to be a grow house
recently destroyed by fire, were located.
The Columbia County Multi-jurisdictional Drug Task Force -
made up of members of the Columbia County Sheriff's Office,
the Lake City Police Department, the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement and the Drug Enforcement Administration -
was tipped off to the locations in Columbia County after the two
similar operations were discovered by the Suwannee County
Multi-jurisdictional Drug Task Force.
People who knew each other operated all of the locations and
all have ties to Cuba and Miami. When all was said and done,
297 mature, high'quality plants were seized. It is estimated the
entire operation was valued at between a quarter and a halfa-mil-
lion dollars.
An off-duty police officer notified the Suwannee Drug Task
Force members of an electricity diversion at a home in Suwan-'
nee County and a grow operation was suspected. The Suwannee,
Drug Task Force is made up of representatives from the Suwan-
nee County Sheriff's Office, the Live Oak Police Department
and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. A search war-
rant was served on die house at 2771 212th Street in Suwannee
County and the first 61 plants were discovered.,
"Many times in drug operations, you will find suspects have
-friends, family and business associates in neighboring counties
and they have to cross county lines to do their business," said
Sheriff Bill Gootee. "Suwannee County Sheriff's Office notified
us of their discovery and possible links to ,the two, locations in.
our county. It is crucial agencies work together and we certain-
ly appreciate the information from the Suwannee County Sher-
iff's Office."
Suwannee County Sheriff Tony Cameron-said he was very
pleased with the outcome of the investigation and commends all
the officers involved.

MCHS Fellowship Of Christian

Athletes Spreads His Word

By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, lInM.
Are you a Christian?
Are you strong enough in
your faith with Jesus Christ
to spread his word among
others? The 15 members of
the Madison County High
School's Fellowship Of
Christian Athletes (FCA) do.
Tammy Leslie and Elias
Paulk are the sponsors for
FCA. The student leaders
are Kris James. Ben Pickles,
Ashley Haynes and Brittany
Davis. They are in charge of
planning meetings and head-
ing up FCA huddles.
FCA reaches-out to stu-
dents and tells them just
what they need to know
about Jesus Christ, that he is
our Savior and the only way
to get into Heaven.
MCHS FCA members
attended a FCA leadership
camp this past summer and
members will be taking
their annual trip to the FCA
camp in February.
FCA members help the
community by reaching out
to students who would be
unlikely to attend church.
Instead, club members
invite students to an FCA
-huddle and hose students
may ask God into their lives
because someone invited
them , to FCA. Also, FCA,
e Hdurages' students -to af"
.tend church on a regular ba-

sis. - '.
' Leslie stated,. "Whenbe'
.was in high school, -I be-
came involved, in FCA be-
cause .of Robin Hill. -She
was my basketball coach
and the FCA sponsor at the
time. FCA really impacted
my relationship with Jesus
FCA has been spiritual-.
ly touching the lives of mil-
lions since 1954. It is the
largest Christian.sports or-
ganization in America. FCA
tries to see the world im-
pacted for Jesus Christ
through the influences of
athletes and coaches. FCA
tries to present to athletes
and coaches, and all who..
they influence, the chal-
lenge and adventure of re-
ceiving Jesus Christ as Sav-
ior and Lord, serving him
through a personal relation-
ship and in the fellowship
of the church.
Leslie noted, "FCA is
an amazing organization
that reaches out to athletes,
coaches and students telling
them about Christ. There
has been a lot of people"
who have given their life to
God because of them going
to FCA camp, or a FCA
huddle. FCA is just an awe-
some organization that
. reaches out to students, with
the' mesagge" dtf Jesus
Christ." . , . .

Cowgirl basketball had a
rocky week, tacking on two
consecutive losses. After a
hard fight and some .ques-.
tionable officiating', the.
Cowgirls lost to Rickards in
Tallahassee, December 1.
The Cowgirls were down 16-
12 at the half, but could not
make up the deficit. The final
score was 42-36. Leading,
scorers were Lateska Brown
with 15 points, Shontavia
Huggins with 1 points, Jen-
nifer Hopkins with seven
points, and . Sasha Turner
with four points.
"Despite playing excel-
lent defense, turnovers and
missed free throws hurt the
girls a lot down the stretch,".
said Coach Chris Neal. "The
defense of the Cowgirls has
been superb the last three
games. Now we have to put a
"W" in the books to go along
with the superb defense."
The Cowgirls played
Lincoln, November 30. It
was another tough loss for
the Cowgirls 38-31. Accord-

ing to Neal, the officiating
was tough on Madison.
Leading scorers against
Lincoln were Lateska Brown
again, with 15 points and
nine rebounds. Fredisa
Williams totaled nine points.
Shontavia Huggins scored
three points. Sasha Turner
had two points, and Crystal
Hightower scored 'one point.
The score at the half was

38-31 (by the books they lost,
but in my mind they won).".

Pecans Are Scarce

By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Louisiana is having a
bumper crop of pecans this
year, but Florida and Georgia
are not. Local pecan-buyer
from Pecanhouse in Lamont,
Arthur Robinson, said he's
paying as much as $4 per
pound for pecans in the shell
and $7.50 for shelled nuts.
According to Madison
County Farm Extension
Agent Kevin Campbell,
pecans are for the most part
alternate-year bearing trees.
He said that accounts some-

what for the poor harvest.
But, most folks are saying the
lack of pecans in Georgia and
Florida is due to the dry
spring and summer.
Robinson said last year
wasn't that good of a year ei-
ther. "Last year was fair,"
Robinson said. "I wouldn't
say it was a good year."
Robinson said the pecan
crop is bad in Georgia, Flori-
da, Alabama and Texas.
Louisiana got the bumper
crop increasing their usual
15-million pound harvest to
19 million pounds this year.

This Year
Patricia Sinclair buys,
pecans at the State Farmers
Market in Moultrie, Ga. She'
said Georgia, usually the
pecan capital of the world,
harvested only about one
fourth of their regular crop.
Sinclair said the highest
she's paid for nuts in the shell
so far this year was $2.50 per
Robinson expects. the
price of the nuts to go up un-
til Christmas. If you're plan-
ning to make some pecan
pies, you better buy those
nuts now.

Oooh.. .That's

By e Shrader, Columnist
- By Janet Schrader, Columnist

Going horseback riding
with a for-real cowboy can be
a scary, fun, dangerous and ex-
citing experience. It depends
on the cowboy.
My cowboy will hold my
horse while I get on ... now.
When I first started riding with
him, I'd have one foot in the
stirrup and he'd go charging
off down the road. Now, my
old gelding would stand there
until I got on, but when I start-
ed riding the cowboy's horse,
things got interesting.
After I landed on my backside
the first time, he's learned to
hold my horse politely, like a
gentleman, while I get on.
But my horse is still not
tamed. We can be out ambling
around in a nice relaxed fash-
ion when all of a sudden he
will take off galloping. "Wait
here," will drift back to me as I
try to control the plunging cow
horse I'm riding.
My cowboy never goes
out on a horse without his
whip. After all, he's a real
Florida Cracker. The whip is
useful, but frightening. When
strange dogs attack the horses,
barking and growling, a couple
of snaps of the whip will send
them packing. Unfortunately,
the man of the house rarely
gives any warning and can be
wild with the popping of the
whip. If you don't stay alert,

With A
either you or your horse could
be the poppee.
I used to ride English. I
had one saddle and a bridle,
Both didn't weigh over 25
pounds. The cowboy has three
or four different saddles. All
weigh more than 50 pounds,
have two girths, stirrups that
adjust only with tools or, ex-
treme strength and a high horn
guaranteed to hit you in the
guts if you and your horse
jump anything higher than a
And then, there are the
bridles. We have many and
they are usually concocted
from string (hay string) bits
and pieces of leather, 30-year
'old bits and some buckles
from the buckle box. Reins for
the bridles could be as fancy

as silver-studded leather or
just a piece of rope with a snap
on each end. Brow bands are
considered unnecessary, (ditto
cheek straps), but the tie-down
is a must-have. Tie-downs in
our house have been wired on,
tied on,. snapped on and buck-
led on.
My cowboy does not see
things like pigs, goats, ATVs,
motorcycles, lightning storms
or, dead animals on the road-
side as anything to cause con-'
cern. And for him, they're not.
His horse could stand up and
dance and he'd still stay on.
For us lesser mortals, those
things are of concern and
mostly to be avoided. So,
when riding with a cowboy,
always be alert, because he is
not worried about a thing.

Missing Boaters Found Dead

A third person has died
within a month in Lake Coun-
ty boating incidents, none of
Whom were wearing life jack-
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) officials have urged
boaters repeatedly to wear ap-
proved personal flotation de-
Gregory K Craine. 52,.
Groveland, was found at 8 a.m.
SWednesday in the 26.2-acre
SSunset Lake in Mascon. He
Shad been missing since 4:25
p.m. Tuesday when the boat he
was on sank.
Also on Wednesday,
searchers found the body of a
man missing in a Seminole
County lake.
FWC officers, with assis-
tance from Lake County Sher-
iff's Office dive team mem-
vbers, had been searching for
Craine since being called
Tuesday afternoon about a
boat sinking.
He and AnthonN Williams.
also of Gro\eland. were fish-
ing ' hen one of them lost his
balance, causing the boat to
roll oer to one side and sink.

Neither man could swim
but Williams %\as wearing a
life jacket and made it safely to
Lake County Sheriff's Of-
fice dive team members found
Craine within 20 feet of his
submerged 12-foot johnboat.
"This is the third fatality
involving individuals not
wearing life jackets in Lake
Counts within the month."
said FWC Lt. David Adams.
"We urge everyone to wear a
personal floatation device
%% whether they can sw im or not."
On Nov. 12. two Summer-
field children drowned in Lake
Yale during a family outing.
FWC Officer Kat KelleN
emphasized the importance of
wearing a life jacket with fatal
boating accidents increasing to
a 10-year high in 2005.
"'Both of these incidents
involved small vessels on in-
land lakes," Kelley said. "Sta-
tisticall\. last year 79 percent
of fatal accidents invol ing
fall-overboards occurred
aboard vessels 17-feet-long or
less. Additionally. 69 percent
of these accidents occurred on
calm, inland 'waters such as

lakes, ponds and rivers."
Kelley said the FWC also
encourages boaters to take a
safe boating course, which
the\ can do by going to
MlvF 'C.corn/boaring.
"Often, a bad decision
leads to a cascade of events
that can impact people's lives
forever." Kelley said. "We
%want people to enjoy Florida's
%waters safely."
In the second incident,
FWC officers assisted the
Seminole County Sheriff's Of-
fice with a search on Lake
Howell for Dav id Ripberger.
40, Casselberry, w.ho was re-
ported missing about noon
Tuesday after friends had not
seen him in nearly\ 24 hours.
Officers found his boat off-
shore in Lake Howell %with
some of his personal items on-
board. including his wallet and
cell phone.
Ripberger's body was
found at 2:45 p.m. Wednes-
day. about 150 feet from his
boat. by dive teams from
Seminole and Volusia coun-
ties. The Seminole County
Sheriffs Office is investigat-
ing his death.

she recovered the shells.
"'On occasion, gopher tor-
toises are sold off the back of

ered a delicacy."
