Bridges OfMadison o y Under R

By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Following the tragedy at the I-35W bridge over
the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, Florida Gov-
ernor Charlie Crist has issued an inquiry to the
Florida Department of Transportation asking
them to provide him with a comprehensive report*
on he status of Florida bridges.
According to Gina Busscher, a spokesperson for

the DOT office in Lake City, bridges are inspected
every two years, and all bridges are safe enough to
drive on. If the bridges have been deemed unsafe,
they are closed down.
Madison County is homn' to 35 bridges (West-
bound, Eastbound and Southbound/Northbound
are counted together,) including one that was built
as early as 1928. The I-35W bridge was built in 1960.

Madison Gasoline Pices

Among Highest in Region

By Ted C. Ensminger
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Shoppers beware! Your pocketbook is under attack
and if you're not careful, not watching what you pay for
a gallon of gas can cost you several hundred extra dol-
lars per year.
On Sunday August 5, 2007, Greene Publishing, Inc.
staff, with the help of a few friends, visited over 40 gas
stations from Orlando to Monticello. Prices for a gallon
of regular unleaded gas varied as much as $.42 per gal-
lon. Based on a twenty-two gallon gas tank, being filled
up once a week for a year, that $.42 difference adds up to
a potential budget smashing $480.48 per year in addi-
tional cost for the same amount of gasoline.
Interesting pricing patterns were observed during
this five hour period. The greatest example of petrole-
um pilferage occurred at the US 90 exit on Interstate 75
in Lake City.
Heading east on US 90, the first four gas stations,
Shell, BP, Exxon and Chevron, all about a 5-iron shot
from the Interstate, were selling gasoline for $3.09 per
gallon. Yet in less than a block, literally in sight of the
four, an independent' Gas N Go station was selling
regular unleaded at just $2.89 per gallon. That's a twen-
ty-cent. savings per gallon just by driving less than an
extra block! Continuing eastward"on US 90 found gas
prices at stations like Wal-Mart and Sunoco for even
less, just $2.87 per gallon.
'Similar examples were found just west of the Inter-
state at the same US 90 exit. The first two stations a
Shell and a BP, one on each side of the highway, were
both selling regular gas at $3.09 per gallon. But sure

The last two weeks have been packed with excite-
ment and I have ridden the weeks out, despite being sick.
Last Wednesday I got sick and had to leave work. For
me to have to leave work sick or to miss work, I really
have to be sick. I missed Wednesday afternoon, Thurs-
day and Friday.
On Saturday, I was feeling a little better, yet still
dragging. I toughed it out and went to the peanut. boil at
Midway Church of God.
Sunday was church day and open house at my fami-
ly's new home. Everyone was so gracious. The ladies at
our church helped host the event and they took care of a
million details that I would have overlooked, even if I
had been 100 percent. Everyone that stopped by had to
get a glimpse of my sister, Abbie's, pink bedroom. It felt'
strange, yet nice, to have so many people in the home. I
would like to thank everyone for the gifts that they
brought, but, most of all, for the gift of their presence.

Don't Forget To

Drink Your Water
If you thought the heat and humidity hasn't been too
bad this summer, this week of high temperatures and a
heat index over 1006 has made up for it. During these pe-
riods of high temperatures. you need to be cautious
about dehydration which can lead to 'serious complica-
tions. Drinking water, an essential nutrient, is the best
way to keep hydrated during summer heat.
Consuming water throughout the day is especially
important in our hot Florida weather. In normal every-
day activity, you may lose 8 to 12 cups of water per day;
this loss needs to be replaced, Experts suggest men
need 12 cups of fluids daily and women need about nine
cups. Many factors, however, play a role and may in-
crease the need for more water. Exercise, hot weather,
caffeine and alcohol will increase fluid loss, which
means you need to increase your intake of fluid.
Nutritionists recommend most of your fluid needs
should be met by drinking water. To ensure an adequate
amount, drinks at least 8 cups of water each day The
rest of your fluid requirements can be' met 'from other
sources beverages, 100% juice and milk., Even fruits
and vegetables contain water. ,:.
Caffeinated beverages -and soda do not increase your
body fluid because caffeine acts as a diuretic and actual-
ly causes a water loss.
Keeping yourself hydrated is as simple as drinking
plain water from the tap. Try drinking water through-
out the day to maintain a fluid balance.
Getting an adequate daily intake of water is as im-
portant to a balanced diet as eating a variety of foods
from all of the food groups.
Communicating for Good Health suggests the fol-
Drink a glass of water first thing in the morning be-
fore you have a cup of coffee.
Carry water bottles wherever you go, drink from it
For every cup of caffeinated coffee, tea or soda,
drink a cup of water.
Switch to decaffeinated coffee, tea or soda.
Order a glass of water with lemon at restaurants.
Sip it while waiting for your meal. '
Drink a glass of water before each meal or snack.
If you are outside working or exercising, carry a bot-
tle of water and be sure to take a drink often.
For more information on eating right, contact the
Madison County Extension Service.

Our 88th birthday is fast approaching in fact, on
Wednesday the 15th and as usual, the family is plan-
ning a huge party. One would think "Christmas in Au-
gust!" Each year, the question is where'will it be this
year, in Atlanta, Middleburg, Jacksonville or Lee? Of
course, our preference this year is Lee after all, we're
getting old! And we want to stay home, dadgummit! But
sister Ruby wants to be with us and says she can't make
it to Lee this year so we capitulate the clan will gather
at Vicki's and Sharon's in Jacksonville and Darrell
Meadows will entertain. Remember him from his years
on the stage at Lee Day? Darrell and wife Carol consid-
er themselves family as do we he dubs himself our oth-
er son and we consider that a compliment. So we intend
to grin and bear the 'inconvenience' of it all! .
And we are on the calendar for a really huge birth-
day gift from Uncle Sam of all people! We had applied in
2003 for a home upgrade grant and was recently con-
tacted by Suwannee River Economic Council that they
have finally decided that it's now our turn! How about
that just be patient and good things will happen! We
sincerely thank Betty Morgan, Cecil Westbrook and Bill
Sheffield at this time if there are others we don't know
the names. But we do appreciate all that Elaine Hartley
of the Madison Senior Citizens has been doing for us.
We also thank Cheryl and Janice at the Lee Town

At her mother's knee, Clara also learned how to
sew. Later, she would design and create wardrobes for
her children. My clothes (including my wedding dress)
were the envy of my friends. Alas, they weren't avail-

We see the little lot next to us is again for sale. The
first company who listed it was asking $35,000 for less
than a half acre there must be a Spanish gold cache
buried there! We told them they wouldn't get it and they
didn't. According to their evaluation, our two plus acres

In other areas, Uncle Sam has not been very good to
his senior population we had a doctor's appointment
in Valdosta last week on Thursday and found when we
called Big Bend that the only day they go to Valdosta is
on Wednesday (Mona had come from Jacksonville last
week to take us for it had taken three months to get the
appointment) but when we called Big Bend this morn-
ing Monday we were informed that we had to give
them three days advance notice. The last we heard it
was 48 hours. So, Seniors of Madison County, this infor-
mation is for your benefit. Uncle Sam is cutting expens-

When Are Seat Belts And Child

Restraints Required To Be Worn?
Seat belts are required when operating a motor vehicle
as defined by ES. 316.613, and ES. 316.614.

Seat Belts:
- It is unlawful for any person to operate a motor vehi-
cle in this state unless each passenger and the operator of
the vehicle are restrained by a safety belt or by a child re-
straint device.
If the driver and/or front seat or back seat passen-
ger are under age 18, the driver receives the citation.
If the front seat passenger is 18 years or older, the
passenger receives the citation.

Child restraints:
All children through age five (5) must be belted by a
federally approved child restraint device. For children
three years or younger, the device must be a separate car-
rier, or a vehicle manufacturers integrated child seat.
Children age four to five years must be belted by a sepa-
rate carrier, and integrated child seat, or a seat belt may
be used.
However, as with many of our laws, there are excep-
tions. With seat belts and child restraints, the exceptions
depend upon the type of vehicle, age of person, and loca-
tion of person in the vehicle.
First, the term motor vehicle does not include a
school bus, ,a bus used for the transportation of .persons
for compensation, a farm tractor or implement of hus-
bandry a truck with a net weight of more than 5,000
pounds (GVWR), a motorcycle, moped, or bicycle and are
therefore exempt from this statute.
Other exceptions include certified medical condi-
tions, newspaper home delivery, solid waste or recyclable
collection services, living quarters of recreational vehi-
cles and space within truck bodies back seat passengers
18 years or older.
In closing, seat belts properly worn save lives. Statis-
tically, more lives are saved each year due to safety belt
usage, especially among children five years and younger.
Parents need to be careful when transitioning their child
from a separate carrier to a seat belt. Although the
statute says that children four to five years may wear a
seat belt, it may not be safe, depending on the child's size
and the fit of the belt. If your child complains that the
belt is irritating their neck, the belt needs readjusting, or
the child needs to continue to use a carrier or booster

Kiwanians Learn Some Southern Histoly

By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
At the July 19 Kiwanis
Club meeting, Jo Willis an-
nounced that Florida Kiwa-
nis Clubs received two
awards recently including
an award for Kiwanis Day
and Caring Corner.
Following dinner, Willis
introduced her guest, Dee
Counts, a Jefferson County
historian. Counts has pub-
lished her book about the
South, Familiar Faces in
Quiet Places, which is avail-
able in the Monticello
Chamber of Commerce.
At the Kiwanis meet-
ing, Counts spoke about the
War Between The States
and how it affected Madi-
son and Jefferson counties.
When Florida seceded
from the Union, the majori-
ty of Jefferson and Madi-
son County residents were
ecstatic. Florida was the
third state admitted to the
Confederacy Middle Flori-

da, the area between the
Suwannee and Apalachico-
la Rivers, comprised of
Madison, Jefferson, Leon,
and Gadsden Counties, was
home to two-thirds of Flori-
da's slaves and 65 percent of
Florida's wealth.
James Patton Ander-
son, a U.S. Marshal and
strong southern supporter,
served as one of four Jeffer-
son County delegates to the
Confederacy Incidentally
that same man, later a ma-
jor general who command-
ed all Florida troops, earlier
in life, stumbled upon a
drunken captain after he'd
fallen from a cliff. Ander-
son risked life and limb to
save the captain, who was
none other than a young
Ulysses S. Grant.
Counts continued to tell
of people who wanted to
avoid forced soldiering -
any able bodied white male
of a certain age was forced
to enlist in the army The

people who refused to enlist
were deserters, and disap-
peared into Taylor County
which became a haven for
those miscreants. The de-
serters raided Madison and
Jefferson Counties, and
would steal horses, cows,
and anything else that
would disrupt the Confed-
erate Movement.
The people appealed to''
James Patton Anderson for
help, and he ordered troops
to hunt down and capture
deserters. The Confederacy
raided the encampments in
Taylor County, and
marched the deserters and
their families to Tallahas-

William Douglas Strick-
land led the largest band of
deserters. After he was
turned over to the Union,
he led the Second Florida
Cavalry in a fight against

In Jefferson County,
and probably Madison as
well, the slave population
greatly outnumbered the
white population. There
was some concern that the
slaves would rebel against
their owners, but most re-
mained loyal to their plan-
Counts described a lit-

tie known incident that oc-
curred at the mouth of the
Aucilla River. The Confed-
eracy, which controlled the
area, found a Federal wood
gathering camp at a spot
along the river. The Con-
federate soldiers lay in
wait, and two boat loads of
about 13 Federals made
their way back to camp
A battle ensued, and,
two Union soldiers were
killed and two were in-
jured. The Confederacy
suffered no injuries or ca-
sualties. The Union sur-
vivors were marched to Tal-
lahassee to prison. Earlier
on, the Union troops left a
nasty message at the St.
Marks lighthouse calling
the Confederate soldiers
In February of 1864,
Union troops left Jack-
sonville and began to
march west, destroying
plantations and encourag-
ing slave resistance, The
troops were met at Olustee
by Confederate soldiers and
a battle was forthcoming.
On February 20, 1864,
on the flat sandy soil and in
the towering pines, the Con-
federacy overtook the
Union troops, who retreat-
ed back to Jacksonville.
The Battle of Olustee is
what ultimately protected
the Middle Florida area
from the pillaging of Union
It was after the Battle of
Olustee that Madison's
Wardlaw Smith Goza house
was used as a triage center

for both Union and Confed-
erate troops who were in-
jured. Rail cars would un-
load as many people as a
town could take, then con-
tinue along the line. Madi-
son's Oak Ridge Cemetery
is home to the graves of un-
known Civil War soldiers,
whose allegiance lie with
both the North and South.
In March of 1865, the
war was nearing an end,
and had turned against the
Confederacy The Union
troops had moved up the St.
Marks River, in an attempt
to capture Tallahassee.
In a special assignment,
Union troops were ordered
to destroy the Aucilla River
railroad bridge and cut off
supplies. An alert hunter
heard the entire conversa-
tion when the orders were
given and he tracked the
men, When the Union sol-
diers were in the process of
starting the fire to destroy
Natural Bridge, "Johnny
Reb," a band of only a few
regulars, militia-men, and
cadets from a school cap-
tured Strickland and
marched him to Tallahas-

The Confederacy, after
a long and tiring war, suc-
cumbed to defeat., That
same oak tree "welcomed
home only a few tattered
remnants of those beauti-
ful troops that left before,"
said Counts.
Florida gave 15,000
troops to the Confederacy -
one in three was killed.
One by one, the brave
Southern souls were
killed. Those that survived
were forced to take an oath
of loyalty to the United
States of America. 0 n
April 1, 1865, Florida Gov-
ernor Milton killed him-
self. Eight days later on
April 9, Lee surrendered to
Union troops at Appomat-
tox Courthouse. Only six
days later, on April 14,
President Abraham Lin-
coln was assassinated.
Counts made the point
that the memories of Ante-
belluni are so controver-
sial. the Stars and Bars
Flag has been removed
from public squares.
The state song, a re-
minder of the heritage of
Florida natives, is being
changed because it isn't
"politically correct."
There are strong emo-
tions on both sides of the
fence, when it comes to the
War Between The States.
However, as Counts point-
ed out, "the memories of
the South will always be in
the hearts and minds of
The memories are not
all good, but they are not
all bad, and these memo-
ries, and history, must be

torical speech, she asked

Because of his community involvement and academics, Holmes was awarded an aca-
demic scholarship to the University of Miami. In 1972. he received his Bachelor's degree
in Social Studies.
Holmes enrolled in law school for a year but then decided that it was time for him to
travel the country After a few stops along the way. Holmes ended up in Berkley, Cal.,
where he took graduate courses in theology and psychology at University of California
at Berkley While at Berkley Holmes was very active in the civil rights movement during
the 1970s.

ing in conjunction with the Health Department with a program targeted at school-aged

children. The program is called. "It's OK To Be Me." and focuses on helping children
make the right decisions in life.
Holmes attributes his success to following the Lord's Will, which opened doors and
led him to where he is today.
V "By listening and obeying the Lord, accomplishing anything is possible." says
'- Holmes.
His graduate theology class at Berkley led Holmes to the ministry, which has been a
driving force in his life.
"As a teacher, I felt like I need to give students a worldly prospective of social studies
and I had some refusing to accept that view Most students accepted it, and because of
that. they'll be able to go beyond Madison, beyond Florida, and travel the world and make
a difference.
"Having been raised in Madison. I had to do hard work during the stunmer- cropping
tobacco and picking cotton. It helped me stay grounded and realize that the natural
process is the way to go."
This is a great metaphor for Holmes' life. He's stayed grounded, with strong roots il

"I'm 69 years old. If I continue to listen and obey the Lord, I feel like I still have some-
thing to offer this great Madison community"

Free Hunter Safety Courses Offered

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) is offering free hunter safety courses.
"It's a good idea to sign up as early as possible while
there are classes available. The closer we get to hunt-
ing season, the quicker the classes fill to capacity,"
said Steve Robbins, regional hunter safety coordina-
"The FWC Hunter Safety Course is available on-
line and on compact disc. Hunters can take a majori-
ty of the classroom instruction without leaving
home before taking part in a field day that includes
live-firing instruction on a shooting range to earn
certification," Robbins said.
"During the field day, students must complete a
standard written examination and are expected to
demonstrate many skills such as loading and un-
loading different types of firearms, safely crossing
fences and other activities that all safe, responsible
hunters should be able to complete," Robbins said.
Families with young children are encouraged to
attend a traditional course. Student interaction with
the instructors may assist the child in better under-
standing the course content, and the instructor can
answer student questions, which cannot be accom-
plished with the online or CD versions.
Students who wish to complete the alternative
course using the CD-ROM method will need to con-
tact the regional office at least two weeks prior to the
scheduled course field day. A CD-ROM with instruc-
tions will be mailed at the student's request.
Below is a list of the remaining classes being of-
fered for 2007. Some are traditional classes and some
are online/CD completion courses. Interested
hunters can check out
or call the Lake City Regional Office at (386) 758-0525
