Hospital Sales Tax


Begins January 1
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madison County stores will begin collecting the half-cent
option sales tax on January 1. The tax was voted in by a major-
ity vote on a referendum in November.
The Madison County Commission voted unanimously on
Wednesday, July 19, to allow County Attorney Tom Reeves and
the hospital's attorney, Cary Hardee, to begin the process of ad-
vertising the referendum to be on the ballot in November. The
vote allows for an extra half-cent to be levied, with the funds go'-
ing towards construction of anew hospital.
Madison County Memorial Hospital Administrator David
Abercrombie explained the need for the hospital at the meeting.
He said that, in 2002, a study had been done which showed that
the hospital had a $36 million impact on the local'economy. He
said, at that time, the hospital employed 178 people. Four years
later, the number of MCMH personnel has been whittled dow n
to 100.
Abercrombie said that the hospital's impact had lessened

Lee Residents Concerned

Over Cable Service
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Residents in the Town of Lee, who have cable service, have
been disappointed with the company recently. For the last three
months, the CW network (formerly the WB) has not been on the
air. In the meantime, customers have been paying the same rate
as when the channel was on the air.
KLiP Cable serxves the Town of Lee.
The CW tNettork is the niutork, which features .howl,.
such as S-'cncrl Heaven, The Gilmore Girls, The Shield and.
WWE Friday Night SmackDown!
Mark Miller, a supervisor for KLiP, did not return this re-
porter's call.
KLiP has also promised to have other channels on the air.
If anyone in Lee has a problem .with cable service, call 1-
800-388-6577, ext. 0 to let KLiP cable know about it. They
should have a cable technician who will go out and look in to it.

Minimum Wage

Goes Up On January 1
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Florida's minimum wage will be raised from $6.40 an hour
to $6.67 per hour effective January 1, 2007 for all hours worked
in Florida.
The raise represents an hourly increase of 27 cents over the
current state minimum wage of $6.40 per hour. Florida's mini-
mum wage was created in a constitutional amendment approved
by voters on November 2, 2004, and covers all employees in the
state covered by the federal minimum wage.
The increase in the minimum wage for this year represents
a 4.2 percent change in the federal consumer price index for ur-
ban wage earners and clerical workers in this region for the 12-
month period prior to September 1, 2006. Florida's new mini-
mum wage will be $1.52 more than the current $5.15 federal
minimum wage.
Employers must pay their employees a wage not less'than
the amount of the hourly state minimum wage for all hours
worked in Florida.
For "tipped employees" meeting eligibility requirements for
the tip credit, employers may count tips actually received as
wages earned, but the employer must pay "tipped employees" a
direct wage in an amount equal to the minimum wage of $6.67
minus $3.02 or a direct hourly wage of $3.65 on January 1,
2007.

City Commission To Grant

Land To Senior Citizens
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc..
The Senior Citizens Center is looking for approximately
five acres of land to build a multi-purpose Senior Center for the
county. Howard Phillips, a board member for Senior Citizens
and Rosa Richardson, its director, presented the request at the
December 12 Madison City Commission meeting.
Commissioners asked if the Center would be willing to
swap land that they currently own in the city for property in the
Industrial Park to build the new building.
Phillips and Richardson advised that they would be willing
to do that.
Paula Arnold, Chamber CEO, addressed the board about the
North Central Rural Economic Development Catalyst Project.
After discussion, Commissioner Jim Catron moved to designate
100 or more acres of city-owned land in the Industrial Park for

New Years Celebrations Can Be Fatal
Colonel Chris Knight, Director of the Florida High%% ay Pa-
trol, announced today the FHP's statewide traffic enforcement
plans for the upcoming New Year's holidays. FHP will imple-
ment zero tolerance enforcement strategies targeting aggressive
and hazardous violations throughout the state. Tiooperis will
place special emphasize on aggressive driving, D.U:I, .speed,
and safety restraint violations. The Patrol is also reminding the
public about the risks of walking and bicycling in close proxim-
ity to traffic. Prudent interaction and adherence to laws by mo-
torists, bicyclists, and pedestrians would prevent many of the
deaths that occur each year on Florida roadways.
This year's Christmas holiday period will begin at 00:01
hours on Saturday, December 23, 2006, and end at midnight,

Charity Donation


Rules Have Changed
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Are you looking for a tax deduction at the end of the year?
Maybe you could make a contribution to your church, a volun-
teer fire department: United Way, Big Bend Hospice, the
Gideons or maybe you want to give a car away. The important
thing to remember is to get a receipt.
It's the season for giving, but if you plan to use charitable
giving donations as a tax deduction, it's important to know that
rules about the deductibility of contributions have changed and
took effect on August 17 with the passage of the Pension Pro-
tection Act of 2006. The changes apply to non-cash donations

Columnist


The Year Slips Quietly Away
This year will slip quietly into last year at midnight Monday
morning. I sit here and think about what an eventful year 2006
has been for me.
I have covered stories this year about drug dealers and peo-
ple who were addicts that were arrested. I have written stories
about board meetings, wrecks, fires and normal ordinary people.
I have tried to be the eyes and ears of the public. In this column,
I have been able to share the saving message of Jesus Christ.
I had the honor of being named Lee's Citizen of the Year. It
was one of the thrills of my life.
For most of the year, I had Jesse Covell help me. She has
been very prolific and busy, covering People and School news. A
few months ago, Janet Schrader came onboard and has written
Sports and Farm news. I will be losing my fellow reporters soon
and I will miss them both,;especially Jesse, with her vivacious and-
quirky personality. Janet's son, Gabe, will come on and do Sports,
but I will pick up almost ev er thing else. It's okay. I've done it be-
fore. My shoulders are big and I know that there is nothing that
God' and I together can't handle.
I've made new friends. I've watched others move away and
others have even died. I've shared laughter and I've shed tears
with my friends.
Sunday evening, I will be at church with some of my friends,
as we ring in the New Year at Midway Church of God (located on
Midway Church Road, just off Highway 255, south of 1-10, Lee
exit). A gospel sing will begin at 7 p.m. The Miracle Singers (and
other local singers, including my brother Danny) will be. singing.
At approximately 8:30 p.m., food will be served. A lock-in for the
youth will begin at approximately 9:30 p.m. The church cordially
invites everyone to come join in a good, clean, fun-filled evening
of praising the Lord.

The Country Editor "Comes Home"
To Visit Madison And Renews
Friendships With Old Friends

T. C. Merchant, Jr., known
affectionately as "Curry," visited
in Madison recently and enjoyed
renewing friendships.
Curry, and his fanil.y were
the prior owners of the Madison
Enterprise-Recorder. He
stopped by Madison on Satur-
day. November 18, for a gather-
ing of neighborhood friends at
the home of Mary Lilla Johnson.
Hosts, Sandy and Lilla
Howerton, welcomed the
beloved Madisonian, as he visit-
ed and reminisced with friends.
Curry, 91, currently lives in
Highlands,, North Carolina, and
is very active working for the
Highlander newspaper, teaching
English to Hispanics, .reading
the daily newspaper to nursing
home residents, and is an inte-
gral part of his church.
In a recent column by this
writer, I wrote about Curry
sending our family a wonderful
note when our son Harvey was
preparing to leave for Iraq. He


wrote: "I was pleased to see
Harvey's picture in the Carrier
as he -,was preparing to go to
Iraq, and I sincerely wish him a
successful safe Tour of Duty. I
join you and thousands of oth-
ers in praying for their safe re-
turn."
Lilla remarked how won-
derful it was to have Curry
come "home" and visit with
them and his many friends at
the gathering at her mothers
home.
"He is a remarkable man,"
Lilla noted. "His mind is sharp
as a tack, and we really enjoyed
having him visit with us here.
We see him occasionally in
Highlands,, but it was wonder-
ful having him stop by in Madi-
son."
Curry's father, T. C. Mer-
chant, Sr. was the former own-
er of the Enterprise-Recorder,
and the family was very active
in all acitivies of Madison
County. We thank Lilla for
sharing this picture and story
with ou r readers.

Put Food Safety First

This New Year Season'
'Tis the season for celebrating the New.. Year and food is al-
ways a part of the festivities. There will be snacks %while watch-
ing parades and football games, some of you may host a family
gathering and there's the traditional pot of black-eyed peas. As
you prepare your New Years meals, USDA reminds us to keep'
foods fresh and safe to eat. If food containing harmful bacteria is
consumed, it could cause foodborne illness. So. when you serve
food, follow this food safety checklist recommended by, the U.S.,
Department of Agriculture.
* Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water for a full
20 seconds before and after handling raw food .
* Use plastic or other non-porous cutting boards. Cutting
boards should be run through the dishwasher - or washed with
soap and hot water'- after each use.
* Store raw meat, poultry, and seafood on a plate or tray, so
raw juices don't drip onto other foods.
* Use one cutting board for raw meat products and another
one for salads and other ready-to-eat foods, or wash cutting
boards in between each use.
*Never place cookedfood on a plate that pre\ iously held raw
meat, poultry or seafood unless the plate has been washed.
* Don't spread bacteria with dirty sponges, dishcloths, or tow-
els. Bacteria thrive in the moist areas of these items where bits of
food may also exist. Use paper towels or freshly-cleaned sponges
or cloths and soap and hot' water to clean food preparation sur-
faces . .
* When cooking meat, poultry and other dishes, use a food
thermometer to make sure foods are cooked to a safe internal tem-
perature.
* When reheating sauces, soups, and gravies, bring them to a
boil. Heat other leftovers thoroughly to 165 ?F. .
* Make sure the refrigerator temperature is 40 �F or below and
0 �F or below in the freezer. Occasionally erify these tempera-
tures using an appliance thermometer.
* Refrigerate of freeze perishables, prepared foods, and left-
overs within 2 hours.
* Never defrost or marinate food at room temperature; use the
refrigerator. You can also thaw foods in airtight packaging in cold
water (change the water every 30 minutes, so the food continues
to thaw). Or, thaw in the microwave, if you'll be cooking the food
immediately.
* Divide large amounts of leftovers into shallow containers'
for quick cooling in the refrigerator.
* Don't over-fill the refrigerator Cold air must circulate to
keep food at a safe temperature..

Daisies to Early Vote Idea;

Darts to Grinchy Complainers
Bouquets of daisies to the memory of President Gerald Ford.
The world will miss his courage and integrity.
Daisies to the politicians, (I know; I usually give them darts.),
who thought up the Early Voting system. What a help to so many
people. I could not have gone to my polling place on Election Day
since I had surgery on the previous day. However, the previous
week I took advantage of Early Voting. Hallelujah!
In a related vein, daisies to all of you who voted for the surtax
to build a new hospital. I believe we will take pride in our new fa-
cility.,
Buckets of daisies to my bosses andsupervisors for their pa-
tience and attentiveness to me during my illness. Everyone should
have such generous people in charge.
Colorful Gerber daisies to Evelyn Murphy, who left her com-
fortable retirement to teach my classes while I was unable to do so.
What a great lady.
Twinkle-lights daisies to all of you who lit up the season in your
homes and yards. It looked so festive - fit for a King's birthday!
And cardboard darts to these folks who complain about people
saying, "Happy Holidays," instead of "Merry Christmas." Come on,
people. The Jew, The Hindu, even the atheist - - they get holidays
just like Christians do. There's no reason to deprive them of a
friendly greeting.
Daisies to Anna Albertson and Irene Powell, who have so ably,
done my job as pianist at Rocky Springs Methodist. You are a bless-
ing, ladies.
Daisies to smokers who are preparing to quit as a New Year's.
resolution. A great gift to yourself and those who love you.
Poison darts to smokers who are not preparing to quit. Come
on, at least try.
Daisies to you if you have celebrated Jesus and you plan to keep
him in your heart.


Charity Donation

cont. from Page 1 A

after August 17. For most calendar-year taxpayers, that means
they are effective in 2006.
Changes regarding cash/monetary contributions
*Donors must have a bank record, a receipt, or written com-
munication from the person receiving the contribution showing
the organization name, date of the contribution, and amount for-
all contributions of money, regardless of the amount.
Changes regarding non-cash contributions
SIndividuals, partnerships, or S corporations may only do-
nate clothing or household items in good used condition, or bet-
ter.
*Exception is for single items of more than $500 value that
include a qualified appraisal, even if the item is not in good used
condition.
*The IRS may deny deductions for items of minimal mone-
tary value such as used socks- and undergarments.
The following changes include donations made between
January 1, 2006, and December 31, 2007:
Changes regarding wholesome food donations
*Foods donated must be wholesome food - food intended
for human consumption that meets all quality and labeling stan-
dards imposed by federal, state, and local laws and regulations,
even though the food may not be readily marketable due to ap-
pearance, age, freshness, grade, size, surplus, or other condi-
tions. .
*The person making the donation must obtain an itemized
receipt containing the same information as those needed for
cash/monetary contributions mentioned previously.
*Corporations or taxpayers owning a trade' or business re-
ceive an above-basis deduction for wholesome foods, but dona-
tions cannot exceed ten percent of the taxpayer's aggregate net
income for that tax year from,,all trades or businesses from
which those contributions were made.
Changes regarding corporate contributions of qualified books
*Corporations receive an above-basis deduction for charita-
ble contributions of books used for elementary or secondary
.public school education meeting specific requirements.
*The person receiving the donation must satisfy the speci-
fied certification requirements regarding the books and its use of
those books.
Changes regarding cash donations for taxpayers age 70 1/2
or older
*Taxpayers over age 70 1/2 can avoid paying income taxes
on cash donations up to $100,000 when paying them directly
from tax-deferred IRAs to qualified charitable organizations..
While this is not a tax deduction, taxpayers do avoid paying tax-
es on the donated amount. It also conserves this money from es-
tate taxes for estates over$2 milliono. All donations must be doc-
umented carefully including a receipt from the person who re-
ceives the gift (see cash/monetary donations abovee.
The changes affect everyone who contributes to charitable
organizations at any level. Churchgoers who used to put cash in
the collection plate each week must now either write a check or
take advantage of the church's envelope system.
This may negatively impact collections such as the MDA
drive over Labor Day weekend by the firefighters. Will you ask
the firefighter for a receipt,when you drop a dollar in the boot?
Essentially, the message is "get a receipt" for every donation,
you wish to claim as a charitable contribution, starting immedi-
ately. Another good idea is to take photos of your. donations.
Every bit of substantiation helps.

acting on them. Here are a
couple of examples:

ly. - .
Clint Rogers requested potable water and sanitary sewer connections for his new dental clin-
ic on Captain Brown Road, without having to annex into the city limits. Commissioner Jim Stan-
,ley made the motion to grant Rogers' request. The motion died for lack of a second.
Under advisement from City Attorney Clay Schnitker, the board voted unanimously to table
action on increased'homestead exemption.


CORRECTION

In last Wednesday's Madison County Carrier it was mistakenly reported that a fire had
burned 32 acres in Lee. The number of acres had been reported to us, The Division of Forestry,
however, reports that the acreage was only slightly over five acres. We apologize for the error.

By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
dispatchers help save
lives. Madison County dis-
patchers provide guidance
and assistance to Madison
County deputies, policemen,
emergency medical personnel
(EMS) and firemen. There are
nine full-time dispatchers and
one part-time' dispatcher who
help keep Madison County
safe.
" Marie Prince is the super-
vis Afor the Madison County
dis tch personnel and has
been serving the community
with her efforts for 22 years.
She fills in as a dispatch-
er for police, the Sheriff's Of-
fice, firemen, volunteer fire-,
men and EMS. Her job is an-
swering all of the administra-
tion lines; as well as 911 calls.,
A person must go through
specific training to become a
well-rounded and legitimate
dispatcher. Prince, along with'
any other Madison County
dispatcher, completed the Na-
tional Crime Information
Center (NCIC) training out of
Tallahassee or Live Oak and'
completed the Emergency
Medical dispatch class too.
Prince stated. "It is some-
thing different every day. My
job never gets old."
Prince always wanted to
get into law enforcement and
dispatch is an outstanding
way to help the community
and give back.


Prince commented, "You
know you have to stay, calm
to help assist the person on
the other line. They are
counting on you."
She is an Associate in
Arts degree holder from
North Florida Junior College.
Prince lives in Madison
and enjoys spending time-
with her family, which in-
cludes her husband Paul,
three grown children and five
grandchildren. In her spare
time, she enjoys reading,
walking and riding her bike.
Ashley Chafin is the


newest face on the Madison
County dispatch team. She
has been working at the coun-
ty jail for a little over a year
and loves her job.
She takes calls, dispatch-
es, enters and deletes war-
rants in the system, deals with
injunctions and stolen items.
Chafin said, "It's some-
thing new and exciting every
time you turn around. This
position is anything but bor-
ing."
She has been around law

Significant Points '
Population growth and economic expansion are expected
to spur employment growth for all'types of dispatchers.
* Many dispatchers are at the entry level and do not require
more than a high school diploma.
* Although there are no mandatory licensing or certification
requirements, some States require public safety dispatchers to
be certified.

Dispatchers schedule and dispatch workers, equipment, or
service vehicles to carry materials or passengers. They keep
records, logs, and schedules of the calls that they receive, the
transportation vehicles that they monitor and control, and the
actions that they take. They maintain information on each call
and then prepare a detailed report on all activities occurring dur-
ing their shifts. Many dispatchers employ computer-aided dis-
patch systems to accomplish these tasks. The work of dispatch-
ers varies greatly, depending on the industry in which they
work.
Regardless of where they work, all dispatchers are assigned
a specific territory and have responsibility for all communica-
tionisvithin that area. Many work in teams, especially dispatch-
ers in large communications centers or companies. One person
usually handles all dispatching calls to the response units or
company drivers, while the other members of the team usually
receive the incoming calls and deal with the public.
Police, fire, and ambulance dispatchers, also called public
safety dispatchers, monitor the location of emergency services
personnel from any one or all of the jurisdiction's emergency
services departments. These workers dispatch the appropriate
type and number of units in response to calls for assistance. Dis-
patchers, or call takers, often are the first people the public con-
tacts when emergency assistance is required. If certified for
emergency medical services, the dispatcher may provide med-
ical instruction to those on the scene of the emergency until. the
medical staff arrives.
Police, fire, and ambulance dispatchers work in a variety of
settings: A police station, a fire station, a hospital, or, increas-
ingly, a centralized communications center. In many areas, the
police department serves as the communications center. In these
situations, all emergency calls go to the police department,
where a dispatcher handles the police calls and screens the oth-
ers before transferring them to the appropriate service.
When handling calls, dispatchers question each caller care-
fully to determine the type, seriousness, and location of the
emergency. The information obtained is posted either electroni-
cally by computer or, with decreasing frequency, by hand. The.
request for help is communicated immediately to uniformed or
supervisory personnel, who quickly decide on the priority of the
incident, the kind and number of units needed, and the location
| of the closest and most suitable units available. Typically, a team
answers calls and relays the information to be dispatched. Re-
sponsibility then shifts to the dispatchers, who send response
units to the scene and monitor the activity of the public safety
personnel answering the dispatched message. During the course
of the shift, dispatchers may rotate these functions.
I When appropriate, dispatchers stay in close contact with
other service providers-for example, a police dispatcher would
. monitor the response of the fire department when there is a ma-
jor fire. In a medical emergency, dispatchers keep in close touch
not only with the dispatched units, but also with the caller. They
may give extensive first-aid instructions before the emergency


personnel arrive, %while the caller is waiting for the ambulance.
Dispatchers continuously give updates on the patient's condi-
tion to the ambulance personnel and often serve as a link be-
tween the medical staff in a hospital and the emergency medical
technicians in the ambulance.
Other dispatchers coordinate deliveries, service calls, and
related activities for a variety of firms. Truck dispatchers, who
work for local and long-distance trucking companies, coordi-
nate the movement of trucks and freight between cities. These
dispatchers direct the pickup and delivery activities of drivers,
receive customers' requests for the pickup and delivery of
freight, consolidate freight orders into truckloads for specific
destinations, assign drivers and trucks, and draw up routes and
pickup and delivery schedules. Bus dispatchers make sure that
local and long-distance buses stay on schedule. They handle all
problems that may disrupt service, andthey dispatch other bus-
es or arrange for repairs in order to restore service and sched-
ules. Train dispatchers ensure the timely and efficient move-
ment of trains according to orders and schedules. They must be
aware of track switch positions, track maintenance areas, and
the location of other trains running on the track. Taxicab dis-
patchers, or starters, dispatch taxis in response to requests for
service and keep logs on all road service calls. Tow-truck dis-
patchers take calls for emergency road service. They relay the
nature of the problem to a nearby service station or a tow-truck
service and see to it that the road service is completed. Gas and
water service dispatchers monitor gaslines and water mains and
send out service trucks and crews to take care of emergencies.
The work of dispatchers can be very hectic when many calls
come in at the same time. The job of public safety dispatcher is
particularly stressful because a slow or an improper response to
a call can result in serious injury or further harm. Also, callers
who are anxious or afraid may become excited and be unable to
provide needed information; some may even become abusive.
Despite provocations dispatchers must remain calm, objective,
and in control of the situation.
Dispatchers sit for long periods, using telephones, com-
puters, and two-way radios. Much of their time is spent at
video display terminals, viewing monitors and observing traf-
fic patterns. As a result of working for long stretches with
computers and other electronic equipment, dispatchers can
experience significant eyestrain and back discomfort. Gener-
ally, dispatchers work a 40-hour week; however, rotating
shifts and compressed work schedules are common. Alterna-

tive work schedules are necessary to accommodate evening.
weekend, and holiday \\ork, as well as 24-hour-per-day, 7-
day-per-week operations.
Many dispatchers are at the entry leel and do not require
more than a high school diploma. Employers, however, prefer
to hire people familiar with computers and other electronic
office and business equipment. Typing, fili ng. recordkeeping,
and other clerical skills also are important.
State or local government civil service regulations usual-
ly govern police, fire, emergency medical,' and ambulance
dispatching jobs. Candidates for these positions may have to
pass written, oral, and performance tests. Also, .they may be
asked to attend training classes and attain the proper certifi-
cation in order to qualify for advancement.
Workers usually develop the necessary skills on the job.
This informal. training lasts from several days to a few
months, depending on the complexity of the job.. Public safe-
ty dispatchers usually require the most extensive training.
While working with an experienced dispatcher, new employ-
ees monitor calls and learn how to. operate a variety of com-
munications equipment, including telephones, radios, and
various wireless devices. As trainees gain confidence, they
begin to handle calls themselves. In smaller operations, dis-
patchers sometimes act as customer service representatives,
processing orders. Many public safety dispatchers also partic-
ipate in structured training programs sponsored by their em-
ployer. Increasingly, public safety dispatchers receive training
in stress and crisis management as well as family counseling.
This training helps them to provide effective services to oth-
ers; and, at the. same time, it helps them manage the stress in-
volved in their work.
Communication skills and the ability to work under pres-
sure are important personal qualities for dispatchers. Resi-
dency in the city or county of employment frequently is re-
quired for public safety dispatchers. Dispatchers in trans-
portation industries must be able to deal with sudden influxes
of shipments and disruptions of shipping schedules caused by
bad weather, road construction, or accidents.
Although there are no mandatory licensing or certifica-
tion requirements, some States require that public safety dis-
patchers possess a certificate to work on a State network, such
as the Police Information Network. Many dispatchers partici-
pate in these programs in order to improve their prospects for
career advancement.
Dispatchers who work for private firms, which usually
are small, will find few opportunities for advancement. In
contrast, public safety dispatchers may become a shift or di-
visional supervisor or chief of communications, or they may
move to higher paying administrative jobs. Some become po-
lice officers or firefighters.

Employment
Dispatchers held 266,000 jobs in 2004. About 36 percent
were police, fire, and ambulance dispatchers, almost all of
whom worked for State and local governments-primarily lo-
cal police and fire departments. About 26 percent of all dis-
patchers worked in the transportation and warehousing indus-
try, and the rest worked in a wide variety of mainly service-
providing industries.
Although dispatching jobs are found throughout the coun-
try, most dispatchers work in urban areas, where large com-
munications centers and businesses are located.

We give thanks for His
grace and strength for the dif-
ficult happenings.
S We ask Him for continued
blessings for this New Year of
2007 and grace and strength
for "whatever will be."
We give thanks for
Preacher and the years he la-
bored among us preaching
hard, preaching the Word, and
for those who heard, and an-
swered, and have come into
church! We're sad to see
Stacey and Viktor and Kaitlyn


and him leave us, but we'll
pray for them in their new
work.
Lil' Jesse's mother gave
me this version of: candy'
canes,
The Colors of Faith
Candy Canes:
Yellow - God's perfect,
light
Black - Our sins
Red - The blood Jesus
shed for us
White - The cleansing of
our sins ,
Green - The new life we


have in Jesus
Blue - The Baptism that
identifies us with Jesus
Purple - The crown of
life .
W. e are thankful that the
"colors of faith" candy canes
moved beyond the red and
white of the original candy
cane from the doctor's/barber
pole.
'Tw'as a special service
for lil' Lydia Jane Barnes, who
,was dedicated by her parents,
Jane\ and Andy;' and lii'
Gabriel and Sweet Mattie.


with much family sharing and
lil' John Marshall Pike was
dedicated by his parents,
Sarah and Ray Pike, and lil'
Henry Fisher, with family
also sharing.
Debbie (Bass) touched us
singing 7Breath of Heaven,"
saying it was a new song and'
so fitting since our Sunday
School lesson \\as about
Mary. Chancel Choir blessed
us, too. Preacher's final mes-
sage was about "remember-:
ing," arid he called the names
of many who touched his life,


while they were here. We
welcome John Page's Jennifer
(Preacher will come back' in
May to marry them) and
Justin and Kim Davis.
Sunday night was Can-
dielight service and Lord's
Supper. We welcome Preach-,
er Phillip Holbrook and
Michelle and Shellie into

Our hearts are sad in the
death of Jim Bob Searcy, and
we pray for his family, and for
the faniih of Mrs. Nlack Har-
2 ris. . .. ...


Many are ill and we pray
for them - Boogie Schnitker,
Margaret Morris at Lake Park.
and not so good is Mary Bush,
also at Lake Park. Pauline
Rushing in Madison Hospital,
and all others.
Families are so special
and \ve are blessed to have all
of ours except Natalie (in
Conn.. visiting her dad) and
lil" Jess (in St. Petersburg with
his- other Grandma).
May the Lord bless us
one and all and help us serve
Him all our days. Amen!

Rejoice
Phi 4:4 Rejoice in the
Lord always: and again I saT.
Rejoice. ,
God's greeting., is to re-
joice in life. God's %wish is,
"You shall rejoice, you shall
be happy." as scripture repeat-
edly says.
Psa. 126:5 Thlev that sow
in rears shall reap in joy.
' As you face a new year.
God has a plan for your life.
Here are some great verses
to support that: "-
� "The steps of a good [
man are ordered by the
LORD: and He delighteth ;
in his way.." (Psahn 37:23) .
"For we are his work-
manship. created in Chirist Je-
suits unto good \iorks, which
God hath beJrie ordained that
.Ie should walk in them.
(Ephesians2:10).
"For I know the thoughts
that f think toward You. saith


the LORD. thoughts of peace.
and not of evil. to give you an
expected enid." Jeremiah
, 9:11)


"I will instruct thee and teach
thee in the way u which thou
shalt go: I will .guide thlee
with mine eye." '(Psalm 32:8).
God is intensely interest-
ed in you. You are special to
Him. He wants Nou to be hap-


py and fulfilled.
'""av tihe God of hope fi11
you with all joy and
peace...that you may overflow
with hope by the power of the
Holy Spirit." -Romans 15:13,
"But now titus says the
Lord. who created vou,... He
Stiwho formined you...I have
. called you by name. you
are mine." -Isaiah 43:1
Real Happiness
It is of these that I be-
lieve the Psalmist speaks
%' when he cries out, "Happy
I are those, O0 God, whom
thou draisest nigh to dwell
* in thy courts." Happy are
i those \who walk in the
way of the Lord.
Let us turn this day be-
yond ourselves to God who
beckons us toward life's
highest joy, as in this season
we begin sending one anoth-
er greetings of true happi-
ness.

I went to a party, Mom,
I remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Morn,
So I drank soda instead.
I really felt proud inside,
The way you said I would.
I didn 't drink and drive, Mom,
Even though others said I should.
I know I did the right thing, Mom,
S I know you are always right.
SNow the parny is finally) ending,
As everyone is driving home tonight.
As I got into my cat; Momn.
I knew I'd get home in one piece.
Because of the way you raised me,
So responsible and sweet.
I started to drive away, MoWn,
But as I'pulled out into the road,
The other car didn't see me, Mom,
And.hit me like a load.
As I lay there on the pavement, Mom,
I hear the policeman say,
The other guy is drunk, Mom,
And now I'm the one who will pai.
I'm lying here dying, Mom...
I wish you'd get here soon.
How could this happen to10 me. Momn'

There is blood all around me. Mom,
And most of it is mine.
I hear the medic say, Maoni,

It was the others, Mom,

He's the one that drank,
But I'm the one to die.
SWhy' do people drink, Mom? n
It can ruin your whole life.
I'm feeling ,sharp pains now.
Pains just like a knife.
The guy who hit me is walking, Mom,
And I don't think it's fair
I'm lying here dying
And all he can do is stare.
Tell my brother not to cry, Mom.
Tell Daddy to be brave.
And when I go to heaven, Mom,
Put "Daddy's Girl" on my grave.
Someone should have told him, Mom,
Not to drink and drive.
If only they had told him, Momn.
I'd still be alive.
My breath is getting shorter, Mom.
I'm getting very scared.
Please don't cry for me, Mom.
When I needed you, you were there.
I have one last question
Before I say goodbye.
I didn't drink and drive,Mom,
So, why am I the one to die?

Remember,
you're not the only person
you affect when you drive drunk.

Practicing Safety On New Year's Eve
By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc. ..
Every year, New Year's bashes are becoming bigger and big-
ger. There is more noise and sometimes too much fun to handle.
It is important to ensure that the proceedings are engulfed in a net
of safety: New Year's Eve is a night that is ripe for the occurrence
of any untoward event. It should not only be left to the law to take
care that nothing bad happens. There are a host of safety mea-
sures that people can take for their own good on the big night.
The common sense tactics include not drinking and driving.
A driver has to be designated before having that first drink: If you
are the host, of the party please ensure that non-alcoholic drinks
are also served.
Also, candles, children and pets don't mix. Keep them away
from each other. ,
A safe, but fun party lies with the host. The host should know
a few things about the liquor that is being served. Beer and wine
are just as intoxicating as hard liquor. A 12-ounce can of beer, a
five-ounce glass of wine, a 12-ounce wine cooler and an ounce
and a half of liquor contain the same amount of alcohol. There is
a tendency to rely on someone's physical appearance to deter-
mine his/her state of drunkenness. This must be avoided at all
costs.

FWC Releases


COLUMBIA COUNTY
Officers Todd Hoyle and
Leslie Sharp received informa-
tion from two off-duty Colum-
bia County Deputies on Dec. 19
regarding night hunting near
their residence. As it turned out,
three suspects were identified as
having shot a spike buck in an
undeveloped new neighborhood
with the aid of their truck head-
lights, while parked in the road.
One dropped 'off to drag the deer
thru the woods to another road
where the truck picked him up.
The shooter was charged, with
taking antlerless deer during
closed season, taking wildlife at
night with a gun and light, and
discharging a firearm from a
paved public road. The other
two were charged with posses-
sion of an antlerless deer during
closed season. A 30-30 Marlin
rifle along with two bags of deer
meat were seized as evidence.
Dec. 16, Investigator Mike
Pridgen responded to a call
about trespass hunting. Pridgen
arrived at the leased hunting
club and found the leaseholder
with a Columbia County man
and wife. The couple had shot a
hen turkey on the lease. Neither
had a Florida hunting license.
The man was cited for no hunt-
ing license and taking hen
turkey. The wife was issued a
warning for no hunting license


and the husband was issued a
warning for trespass., The cou-
ple had knowingly entered the
leased property on their all-ter-
rain vehicle and taken the
turkey, Columbia County Sher-
iffs Office assisted.
DIXIE COUNTY
Dec. 20, Investigator Larry
Ayers and Officer Justin Allen
were targeting marine resource
violations on theSuwannee Riv-
er at Alligator Pass. While
checking an individual who
claimed he had not caught any
fish, the officers found two un-
der-sized Red Drum attached to
a stringer under the boat. The
individual was charged with un-
der-sized redfish and over-the-
bag limit.
HAMIILTON COUNTY
Officer Spence Yon re-
sponded to a trespass complaint
where an individual was report-
ed to be hunting out of a deer
stand on private property. The
property owners insisted that
trespass charges be filed on the
individual. The witnesses gave
written statements and the de-
fendant was notified to appear in
court.
Officer Arlo Rissman as-
sisted the Kiwanis Club with
their second turkey shoot. As
before, the event gave partici-
pants the opportunity to ask
questions about FWC programs.


LAFAYETTE COUNTY
Officers Matt Tyre and
Bryan Humphries were working
a night hunting complaint area
near the Lafayette/Dixie County
line when they observed a vehi-
cle driving slowly and working
alight. The vehicle was stopped
and three Dixie County resi-
dents were identified. In the ve-
hicle were two spotlights and
one loaded Ruger M77 Mark II
.243 rifle. The driver and pas-
senger were issued citations for
hunting at night with gun and
light violations and the female
passenger was issued a written
warning. The rifle and lights
were seized.
Officer Dennis Sharpe and
Rodney Boone received infor-
mation from the Royal Gorge
Hunt Club about a hunter who
had shot a doe deer. The officers
located several witnesses and
obtained sufficient information
to locate the person in the Ten-
nille Campground at US 19 and
SR 51 in Taylor County. The
OkeechobeeCounty resident
gave statements and was given a
notice to appear in Lafayette

The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 15A


My cowboy, the man of
the house, is afflicted with
OCD (Obsessive Compulsive
Disorder). Because he's a cow-
boy, it manifests itself in some
really weird ways. For exam-
ple, his cowboy boots are al-
ways lined up in a perfectly
straight line. Since he has lots
of pairs, the line can stretch
pretty far. There are other man-
ifestations.
My cowboy double-checks
all gates. He is really obsessive
about closing gates behind
himself, checks them twice,
and if you're the one closing
the gate, he'll check your
work! (Really!)
All barn tasks are compli-
cated at my house by OCD.
The complex maze of gates he
designed around the barn to
move livestock have to be nav-


igated in exactly the right order
or the cowboys loses his mind
(literally). Just the other day
we were out checking the
progress of our rye field and I
tried to leave the pasture by the
wrong gate. I was quickly cor-
rected. After five years, non-
OCD type person that I am, I
still have to be notified that I'm
doing it wrong.
It's a good thing I don't
have OCD. Imagine two OCD
types living together with dif-
ferent order issues! "We're do-
ing it MY way!" "No, we're
doing it MY way!" Things
could get ugly fast.
The weird thing is we also
have animals with OCD. Most
cow dogs seem to be inflicted
with this disorder. We had one
that HAD. to round up cows.
Our cows at the house were so


Department Continues Investigation


Into Horse Virus Outbreak


Oooh...That's






SBy Janet Schrader, Columnist


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer SerVices Com-
missioner Charles H. Bron-
son says the Department's
Division of Animal Indus-
try is continuing the inves-
tigation into the presence of
Equine Herpesvirus - type 1
(EHV-1) in several areas of
the state including Welling-
ton, Jupiter and the Ocala.
area. EHV-1 can be a seri-
ous disease of horses and
the virus can spread
through the air from the
respiratory route of affected
horses. Transmission can
also occur through contam-
inated equipment, clothing
and hands. There is no
record of a human health
threat from the virus.
So far, seven horses
have tested positive for the
virus through lab tests. All
confirmed cases are under
quarantine.
Here is a chronology of
events:
Five horses imported
from Europe were brought
to Florida from the New
York animal import station,
a quarantine station for im-
ported horses; three more
horses were picked up en
route in Huntington, N.Y.,
and one in Darlington,
Maryland. When the truck,
arrived on November 29 in
Wellington, Florida, one of
the horses from the import
station was ill. That horse is
now recovering but two
horses that were stabled'

with the index horse at the
original facility became ill
and died. A lab test on one
of those horses confirmed
EHV-1. The facility, JN
and Company, is currently
under state quarantine 4nd
the horses are being closely
monitored. No horses are
allowed to] enter or leave
the premises.
The Maryland horse
had been transported to an-
other Wellington location,
Southfields Training facili-.
ty, and died on December 2.
While no lab test was done,
because ,of its exposure to
the disease, the Southfields
facility voluntarily restrict-
ed all movement of horses.
Late today, a lab test con-
firmed a positive case with-
in that facility at the Palm
Beach Equine Sports Com-
plex, which is part of the
Southfields Training facili-
ty. There is a second sus-
pect case there awaiting lab
test confirmation. The De-
partment is also placing this
facility under quarantine.
A horse that was ex-
posed to the virus during
the shipment into Florida
was treated at the Palm
Beach Equine Clinic and is
believed to have been a
possible link to the horse in
Ocala, which was at the
clinic at the same time. The.
Ocala horse has tested posi-
tive for EHV-1 and was
transported to Ocala on De-
cember 11. The horse was

used to him, that after the first
yip,' they all immediately
grouped into. a bunch and-
stayed there until Handy was
gone. He could not deal with
cows that would not bunch up
for him. We have another one.
He thinks he's a horse. He
will not come out of the pas-
ture if his horses are out there.
Not even to eat. He has to stay
with the horses. I've even
seen him trying to graze.
The man of the house is a
horse shoer as well as a cow-
boy. He takes his OCD to
work with him as well. He.
has a certain order for doing
horse feet, though the order
can be different for some
horses. He seems to just sense
what order a horse will most
easily accept, and from then
on it never,'changes. His tools
have to be kept in perfect or-
der, lined up in their box. Af-
ter he works on the horses, all
tools go back into the toolbox
in the exact same order with
his chaps on the top. He takes
the same route to all of his
customer's houses every day
and groups his customers pre-
cisely to make the fewest
miles.
As I sit here writing this
I'm thinking, for a cowboy,
maybe OCD isn't such a bad
thing after all. Working with
large animals can be danger-
ous. For my cowboy, maybe
the OCD makes it a little
safer.

ill when it arrived and was
immediately isolated from
all other horses at the Ocala
location,' Tuxedo Farms.
The horse continues to be
isolated and a portion of
that facility is also under
quarantine.
The Palm Beach Equine
Clinic indicated it is con-
tacting the owners of all
horses that were there at the
same time as the index
horse to make them aware
of the situation and find out
if any of the horses are ex-
hibiting any signs of EHV-
1. So far the Department
has received no reports of
any other horses that were
at the clinic showing dis-
ease signs.
A, horse at Pinehurst
Stables. in Jupiter, Florida,
has also been reported
with neurological symp-
toms of the disease and a
sample has been submitted
for a lab test.
The Division of Ani-
mal Industry is working
closely with veterinarians
and equine facilities in the
impacted locations to
monitor the animals and
assist with testing.
Owners with sick hors-
es should contact their pri-
vate veterinarian to exam-
ine and treat their horses.
Veterinarians suspecting
EHV-1 with neurological
signs are advised to con-
tact state officials and fol-
low protocols for collect-
ing and submitting appro-
priate 'samples for labora-
tory diagnosis.
Horse owners in the
impacted areas are being
asked to follow biosecurity
measures until the virus is
controlled. The measures
are:
* Have temperatures
taken a minimum of twice
daily, with a temperature
log being maintained on
each horse. Horses with
fevers >101.9 or >1 degree
above their normal temper-
ature should be reported to
the stable's veterinarian.
The horse should be isolat-
ed and EHV-1 samples
should be taken by the sta-
ble veterinarian.
* Limiting admittance
of people into the barn
area to only necessary per-
sonnel. When entering or
exiting a stable or barn,
use foot baths to disinfect
outer footwear and wash
hands.
* Washing hands with
soap and water or using a
dry disinfectant after han-
dling each horse.
* Minimizing the use
of shared equipment.
Equipment such as water
buckets, lead ropes,
grooming equipment, etc.,
should not be shared be-
tween horses. These items
should be labeled as be-
longing to an individual
horse. Other equipment
such as twitches, shovels,
forks and bits should be
disinfected daill and be-
tween each us.e.
* Care should be taken
when filling water buckets
and feed troughs. Neither
the hose nor the feed scoop
should have contact with
an individual horse's buck-
et or trough.
* Multi-dose oral med-
ications should not be
shared between horses.
* Any additional biose-
