School District Addresses Adequate Yearly Progress

Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison County
School District has addressed
the Adequate Yearly Progress

District Coordinator of
School Improvement, Assess-
ment, Accountability and Eq-

uity, the following informa-
tion was released:
"Madison County schools
and the district are dedicated
to ensuring that our students
succeed. While we have al-
ways had high expectations
for our students, the federal
No Child Left Behind Act of
2001 (NCLB) has set new stan-
dards for students to meet.

NCLB requires states to eval-
uate the performance of all
students in all public schools.
"This summer, our state
released a report on the
progress our schools are
making toward achieving
proficiency for 100 percent of
our students under NCLB.
The report identifies whether

McDonald's Billboards May Confuse Motorists

Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Michael curtis, september z2, zuui
The McDonald's billboard on 90 west, just past Madison County Central School, tells travelers to
turn off on Pickle Lane (the next left turn). That's one way to avoid fast food!

Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Michael Curtis, September 26, 2007
Travelers along Colin Kelly Highway (Hwy. 145) may get a little confused as they see the McDonald's
billboard just before the last turn coming back into Madison on the Valdosta Highway. If they continue
for about two miles before making a right turn, there's no telling where they will end up. Don't McDon-
ald's cu-tomers deserve a break today?

Meeting On


The Suwannee River Water Management District will host a meet-
ing on Tuesday, October 2, to present information and to receive pub-
lic comment on the setting of minimum flows and levels (MFLs) for
the Withlacoochee River and springs.
The meeting will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Lee Elementary
School cafeteria, 7731 E. US 90, in Lee.
Florida Statutes require that MFLs water levels and flows de-
signed to prevent significant harm to water resources be established
for water bodies.
The District already has established proposed MFLs for other wa-
ter bodies including the Lower Suwannee Rivet; Manatee, and Fan-
ning and Madison Blue springs.
MFLs will help in the water supply planning process and in deter-
mining water availability for consumptive use purposes. In addition,
they will provide guidance in making water use and permitting deci-
sions; ensure sufficient water resources for the public and ecosys-
tems; protect wetlands, fish and wildlife habitat: and provide protee.
tion of water resources for navigation and recreation.

Former Trooper

Found Guilty
Special from The Monticello News
Former Florida Highway Patrol Trooper
Kamau Bell, 33, of Tallahassee, was found
guilty of two counts of Unnatural and Las-
civious Acts and was sentenced to 60 days

to witness testimony and evidence, Bell, in
his capacity as a Florida Highway Patrol

n"I AAm Meth"

A Bad Day Brightened
I saw the little twin who attends my church standing
at the buffet line at O'Neal's. I had been having a bad day
and she looked a little confused herself.
"Hey, Georgia," I said and she ran up and grabbed me
and gave me a hug. I asked her if she needed some help,
thinking she might need someone to help her get some
"I need a fork," she said, looking up at where the forks
were stored far above her head. I reached and got her
one. She told me "thank you" and ran off to where her
mother and sister were sitting.
In that brief moment, we were able to help each other.
She added a lift to my day by giving me a little hug and I
was able to help her get a fork.
It's amazing how God
Iltrlycan put a person there to
t e help you when you need it.
I was having a bad day and
a God knew it. There was no
Call t y way that the twin could
i have known how bad a day
83 I was having but she was
happy to see me and she
gave me a little hug and
made me feel a lot better. I
was able to get a fork for
her and I could tell by the
look on her face that she
felt better.
tSo many times, I forget
tothank God for the little
things like this that he
does to help brighten my
day, things like kind words
from friends, a hot cup of
coffee on a cold morning, a
card from a friend or rela-
tive and a hug and a smile
from a child.

(This was written by a young American Indian girl
who was in jail for drug charges, and was addicted to
meth. She wrote this while in jail. As you will soon read,
she fully grasped the horrors of the drug, as she tells in

Please be concerned for our children, grandchildren,
teens, young adults, and understand, this thing is worse
than any of us realize..My Name: "Is Meth"
I destroy homes, I tear families apart,
take your children, and that's just the start
I'm more costly than diamonds,
more precious than gold,
The sorrow I bring is a sight to behold.
If you need me, remember I'm easily found,
I live all around you-in schools and in town.
I live with the rich;
I live with the poor, I live down the street,
and maybe next door.
I'm made in a lab, but not like you think,
I can be made under the kitchen sink.
In your child's closet, and even in the woods,
If this scares you to death, well it certainly should.
I have many names,
but there's one you know best,
My power is, awesome; try me you'll see,
But if you do, you may never break free.
Just try me once and I might let you go,
But try me twice, and I'll own your soul.
When I possess you, you'll steal and you'll lie,
You do what you have to just to get high.
The crimes you'll commit for my narcotic charms
Will be worth the pleasure you'll feel in your arms,
your lungs your nose.
You'll lie to :your mother; you'll steal from your dad,
When you see their tears, you should feel sad.
But you'll forget your morals and how
youwere raised,
I'll be your conscience, I'll teach you my ways.
I take kids from parents, and parents from kids,
I turn people from God, and separate friends.
I'll take everything from you. your looks and
your pride, '
I'll be with you always right by your side.
You'll give up everything-your family, your home,
Your friends, your money, then you'll be alone.
ICE! Great Idea!!!

We all carry, our mobile phones with hundreds of
names/ numbers stored in its memory but yet nobody,
other than ourselves, know which of these numbers be-
long to our near and dear ones?
In case we are involved in an accident or had a heart
attack and the people attending us get hold of our mo-
bile phone but don't know which number to call to in-
form our family members. Yes, there are many numbers
stored but which one is the contact person in case of an
For this reason, we must have one or more telephone
numbers stored under the name ICE (In Case of Emer-
gency) in our mobile phones.
Recently, the concept of 'ICE' is catching up quickly. It
is simple, an important' method of contact during emer-
gency situations., '
As cell phones are carried by a majority of the popu-
lation, just store the number of a contact person or per-
son who should be contacted during emergency as ICE
(meaning "In.Case of Emergency").
The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found
that when they went to the scenes of accidents, there
were always mobile phones with patients, but they did-
n't know which number to call. He therefore thought
that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally rec-
ognized name for this purpose.
Following a disaster in London, the East Anglican
Ambulance Service has launched a national 'In Case qf
Emergency (ICE)' campaign..
In an emergency situation, Emergency Service per-
sonnel and hospital staff would then be able to quickly
contact your next of kin, by simply dialing the number
stored as 'ICE'.
Please forward this. It won't take too many 'forwards'
before every body will know about this.
It really could save your life, or put a loved one's mind
at rest.
For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1,
ICE2 and ICE3 etc.
A great idea that will make a difference!
Let's spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE
number in our mobile phones today!

I'll take and take, till you have nothing more to give,
When I'm finished with you, you'll be lucky to live.
If you try me be warned-this is no game,
If given the chance, I'll drive you insane.
I'll ravish your body, I'll control your mind,
I'll own you completely, your soul will
be mine.
The nightmares I'll give you while lying in bed,
The voices you'll hear, from inside your head.
The sweats, the shakes, the visions you'll see,
I want you to know, these are all gifts from me.
But then it's too late, and you'll know in your heart,
that you are mine, and we shall not part.
You'll regret that you tried me, they always do,
But you came to me, not Ito you.
You knew this would happen,
many times you were told,
But you challenged my power, and chose to be bold.
You could have said no, and just walked away,
If you could live that day over,
now what would you say?
I'll be your master, you will be my slave,
.I'll even go with you; when-you go to you grave.
Now that you have met me, what will you do?
Will you try me or not? It's all up to you.

Daisies To Loyal Readers;

Darts To Stubborn Democrats

What a delightful way to spend that Sunday afternoon.
Fragrant daisies to my friends Sheila and Susan, who
have both dropped an amazing amount of. weight on
their quest for better health. Keep it up, ladies.
Chad-shaped darts to our state Democratic Party,
which has decided to keep an early primary date even
though it goes against the' rules of the national party
That's not membership; that's anarchy It will cost Flori-
da its votes in the National Convention. How shortsight-

. Lighter-fluid-soaked darts to smokers who leave their
paraphernalia around where children can get hold'of it.
That's dangerous and fool-hardy, folks.
Daisies to the people who are refurbishing the old ho-
tel downtown and other buildings around the area.
These "new faces" really do make us all feel better and
stand proud.
Daisies to parents who find a way to sit down around

week. This is one of the best procedures you can possi-
bly use to train up that child in the way he should go.
Fields of lovely daisies to you, my,faithful readers

Improve Your Finances:

Follow This "To-Do" List
Looking for ways to increase your money? Consider
the following "to-do" list that Rutgers Extension Finan-
cial Specialist, Barbara O'Neil suggests will get you on
the right track. It's short, but following the suggestions
will help increase your bottom line.
Build An Emergency Fund Set aside at least three
to six months expenses as a reserve for the unexpected.
Place this money in a CD or money market fund to earn
better return. Start by putting a set amount of money
away each week. Try different strategies, save all of
your coins or deposit the money in a savings account
when you get your pay check.
Chip Away at Debt Set a goal to pay off a loan or
credit care balance by a certain date. If you have many
debts, consider paying off the smaller balances first and
roll the payment. Contact the Madison Extension office
for a PowerPay analysis to accelerate debt repayment.
Bank a Windfall Save a bonus or tax refund instead
of spending it. It can become' the emergency fund you
have been trying to set up.
Shop around for goods and services This includes
the purchase or use of home contractors, insurance
policies, credit cards and banking services. Use the
"Rule of Three" and compare at least three providers
with criteria such as cost and experience.
Keep good records Set up a simple system if you
don't already have one. Purchase an inexpensive home
filing system with labels and file folders. Track your
monthly income and record expenses, making adjust-
ments if you need to reduce spending.
For more information on money management, con-
tact the Madison County Extension Service.

Life Is Hectic

Life has been hectic to say the least for the past sev-
eral weeks, dear readers, and we've missed you. Our
house has been in the throes of remodeling or perhaps
reconstruction is a more appropriate term and we
were told in advance that we should leave town! We did
for a week but we had responsibilities. During Septem-
ber the Lee Town Council, besides its scheduled .meet-
ing, convened for two special meetings and also held a
ground breaking.
So we are camping out in the family room where
everything in the rest of the house is now packed floor
to ceiling all the living room, bedroom, kitchen and
bath furniture and necessities for living. Granddaugh-
ter Cindy with daughters Sharon and Mona as weekend
visitors even found places to sleep. We have most of the
comforts of home in here microwave, hot plate, grill,
toaster and small refrigerator and the microwave also
brews coffee! That is very important.
But I never saw so much dirt in my life if it doesn't
come from the walls and ceiling and from under the
floor it comes from the workers shoes as they constantly
need to go in and out. And there were plumbing leaks
which even led to mud on the floor, especially after the
showers. Oh, well, this too shall pass.
We wanted to tell you about all the vacations and sum-
mer fun that lots of Lee residents enjoyed lately; all the
birthdays, anniversaries and weddings; but because we
can't find anything not even paper on which to write a
decent column! we will limit this week's news to the
best item of all. Ernestine is better! Our Mayor has been
very ill and we've all been so worried but she called us
herself yesterday and sounded great said she was do-
ing so much better.
Another in the good news department Mike is com-
ing back to work. Hurray we need him!
And one last thing we tried to find out who wrote the
column "You Ain't Gonna Like Losing!" one of the best
we've read in a long time but no dice. We lived through
all that and it's so true absolutely everybody worked to-
gether, big and little, young and old, to win that war for
America, land of the free!
See ya later!

SCHOOL contfrom page 1A HIRSCH

school are tested in reading, writing, and mathematics.
Performance scores are then divided into various sub-
groups having at least 30 members, which identify students
by race, socioeconomic and learning disability status.
Each subgroup's performance percentage is then rated as
passing or failing according to state standards and is used
when determining the overall performance of the entire
school. In addition, schools must meet graduation rates
and attendance targets. If just one subgroup misses just
one target, an entire school does not make AYP.
"To be eligible for AYP, a district must test at least 95%
of the targeted participants. For 2007 the AYPs targeted
rates were 51% of the students scoring at or above grade
level in reading and 56% of the students scoring at or above
grade level in math. The criteria for writing is to increase
1% above the previous year.
"'None of the schools it the district made AYP. Though
Pinetta Elementary is rated as an A (557 out of 600 points)
schoolanid satisfied 97% of the requirements, they did not
meet the writing criteria for AYP. Therefore, Pinetta Ele-
mentary did not make AYP.
"Lee Elementary School's economically disadvantaged
students need improvement in math. Also, school wide this,
criteria was not met. This school did meet the writing cri-
teria. The school satisfied 95% of the requirements for
AYP and received a C (474 out of 600 points) as their school
"Madison County Central School's black, economically
disadvantaged and students with disabilities, need im-
provement in reading and math. This school did meet the
writing criteria. The school satisfied 77% of the require-
ments for AYP and received a D (417 out of 600 points) as
their school grade.
"At Greenville Elementary School, blacks and economi-
cally disadvantaged students in this school need improve-
ment in reading and math. They did meet AYP require-
ments in writing. Though they satisfied 80% of the re-
quirements for AYP they received an F (344 out of 600
points) as their school grade.
"Madison County High School's white, black, economi-
cally disadvantaged and students with disabilities, school
need improvement in reading. Black, economically disad-
vantaged and students with disabilities, need improvement
in math. This school did meet the writing criteria. The
school satisfied 74% of the requirements for AYP and re-
ceived a D (427 out of 600 points) as their school grade.
"Madison County Excel Alternative School did not have
enough students in their testing group to be eligible to be
graded under the A+ plan. For AYP purposes the school did
not have any eligible subgroups. School wide they did not
meet the writing criteria, therefore they did not make AYP.
"As a district, Madison County did not make AYP Col-
lectively the district is not meeting the criteria for reading
or math. Blacks, economically disadvantaged, and stu-
dents with disabilities are not meeting the projected profi-
ciency levels for reading or math. As a district, they are not
testing enough of the Hispanic students.
"Please note that many good schools across the state as
well as the nation have not made AYE For example, in our
state, a significant percentage of schools haven't met the
goal. That doesn't mean they are not successful. AYP is an
all-or-nothing proposition, but student achievement is not.
Academic success is measured in many ways, including
classroom tests, teacher observations, report cards, home-
work, and standardized tests. But AYP focuses only on state
tests. Low performance in only one subgroup can cause a
school to miss AYP.
"A concentrated effort is being made to address the sub-
groups at the various schools which did not make AYR
Highly qualified teachers are being placed in researched
based programs to aid us in reaching these goals. Also, in
the upcoming year, Madison County Schools System plans
to reach out to encourage more parental involvement as we
move toward attaining AYP status for all of our schools. In
addition, to address the reading deficient of the district,
the early release days are dedicated to Reading Profession-
al Development."

When Maurice activated his blue lights and siren, the
suspect vehicle accelerated to speeds over 100 mph and con-
tinued east. Deputy Jason Whitfield, who was in Lee, was
preparing to deploy stop sticks, but the vehicle arrived at
his location before he could deploy sticks.
The vehicle passed Whitfield traveling at over 100 mph
in a 40 mph zone, with the lights still out. The vehicle was
headed toward Suwannee County at speeds of 120 and 130
mph, with Whitfield and Maurice following.
At one point, the vehicle crossed the railroad tracks just
west of the county line and slowed rapidly, pulling into the
Three Rivers Wildlife Commission Check Station, which
was "full of hunters preparing for their morning hunt,"
the report stated. The car was stopped in a southeast cor-
ner of the parking lot, and the driver, later identified as
Hirsch, exited the vehicle and ran into the woods.
The passenger in the vehicle, Julius Will Gassett, was"
taken into custody, and advised deputies that the driver was,
a white female, with blonde hair, wearing a white t-shirt
and blue jeans.
Maurice and Deputy Jimmy Fletcher, who arrived later,
entered the woods to search for Hirsch. Approximately 20
minutes into the search, dispatch called deputies, advising
that the Florida Highway Patrol had a woman matching
Hirsch's description in custody.
Fletcher responded, and after a positive identification,
took custody of Hirsch from Trooper Brian Lundy. Follow-
ing a driver's license check, it was discovered that Hirsch's
driver's license had been suspended. When asked about the
registration of the vehicle that she was driving, Hirsch re-
sponded that she borrowed the car from an unidentified
Hispanic male in Gainesville.
The passenger in the vehicle was later released in the
City of Madison, and Hirsch was transported to the county
jail by Deputy Fletcher.

his patrol vehicle, where he told her to expose her private
parts and she complied.
Bell issued the driver a written warning for the speeding
violation and released them. Copies of the completed Uni-
form Traffic Citation (UTC), charging the driver with dri-
ving 101 mph in a 70 mph zone, were located in Bell's as-
signed patrol vehicle. The driver did not sign the UTO and
the UTC was not transmitted to the Clerk of Court In Jef-
ferson County
The six-man jury trial before County Judge Robert R.
Plaines, began Sept. 19 and the jury declared a guilty ver-
dict Sept. 20. Bell was transported to the Jefferson County
Jail where he will serve 60 days in Protective Confinement
Behind the scenes at FHP, Lt. John Bagnardi described
what happened concerning Bell's case.
"Unfortunately, accusations of this kind are made
against troopers and we follow the procedure," said Bag-
nardi. "In June, when the accusation was made against
Bell, he was pulled off the street and placed in administra-
tive duty (a desk job) in the Madison office. He had no gun
and no badge until the jury reached a verdict. Once the
jury came down with the guilty verdict, papers of termina-
tion were completed and presented to Bell in the Jefferson
County Jail before 5 p.m. the same afternoon." He conclud-
ed that the conclusion of the charges would be forwarded to
the Criminal Justice Standards Commission, who will in
turn, review the information and if warranted, strip Bell of
his law enforcement certification, meaning he would never
again be able to work in any field of law enforcement in the
state of Florida.

By Jessica Higginbotham -

According to the Madison Po-,,i l
lice Department, on September i
24, Shawn Lynn Houston was ar-
rested for possession of mari-
juana, less than 20 grams, fol-
lowing a search of the vehicle he
was a passenger in.
While Cpl. Chris Cooks was 70-
on regular patrol, he noticed a
blue Ford car, traveling west on Shawn Houston
Dade Street, with a tail light out.
Cooks conducted a routine traffic stop, and after he is-
sued the repair order for the lamp, he asked to search
the vehicle.
The driver of the vehicle gave consent to a search,
and during the search, Cooks located a clear bag of a
leafy substance on the back right passenger floor. Hous-
ton, a passenger in the vehicle, told Cooks that the mar-
ijuana was his, after he was advised of his rights.
' Houston was taken into custody and later booked at
the county jail.

On September 21, the
Senior Citizens Center
hosted Scott Mehle who is
with the Epilepsy Associa-
-tion of the Big Bend.
The focus of Mehle's
presentation was seniors
and epilepsy According to
SMehle, senior citizens are
the, fastest growing popu-
lation with epilepsy -
'300,000 out of a total
epileptic population of
Some forms of epilepsy
in seniors are caused by
stroke and cardiovascular
disease, however, in the
majority of cases, the

cause is unknown.
Mehle went over seizure
recognition and first aid
for seizures, as well as di-
agnosis, treatment, and
preventative measures.
Mehle explained that
seizure first aid involves
one simple principle pro-
tecting the person from
harm until full awareness
returns. Some seizures,
like absence seizures, are
very mild and last for a
short time, but others, like
tonic-clonic seizures, can
be extremely debilitating.
To handle convulsions
in an older person, a re-
sponder should first lower
the person to a reclining
position on the floor or an-
other flat surface, and
then something soft
should be placed under the
head. As always, the per-
son should be gently
turned to the side to pre-
vent choking.
Nothing should be

forced ifito the person's
mouth, and no fluids or
medications should be ad-
ministered until the
seizure is completely over.
A person having a
seizure should not be re-
strained, as the convul-
sions occur with force.
Prior to Mehle's presen-
tation, the senior citizens
enjoyed an early breakfast
of sausage, eggs, grits, and

Scott Mehle spoke about
epilepsy to the senior citi-
zens at the Madison Senior
Citizens Center.

United Way Leadership, "Dinner With

A Side Of Donation Tastes Just Tight"

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
If you asked the Madison County Unit-
ed Way leadership what was on the menu
at last week's Leadership Giving Society
dinner, some would say prime rib, but in
reality it was all about donations. Their
slogan says it all, "Every Penny Counts -
Be a Lifesaver in Madison, County," refer-
ring to the large wooden Lifesaver candy
roll sitting on the Court House lawn that
will be used to track donations during this
year's fund drive concluding October 31st.
Mary Carol Kaney, Board Development
Campaign Associate for the United Way of
the Big Bend, our county's United Way
governing 'body, said the dinner was a
huge success, and that all its organizers
and volunteers deserved tremendous
praise. According to Kaney, big thanks

prime rib dinner.


should begin with organizer Jackie John-
son, Madison County United Way Leader-
ship Giving Chair, but it certainly should-
n't end there.
Gene and Theresa Rutherford hosted
the dinner at their home. The dinner itself
was prepared and donated by Jack and
Melissa Proctor and The Madison County
Community Bank. It consisted of a deli-
cious prime rib, with sides to match. It
was a meal fitting both the occasion and
the level of commitment, financial and
time, demonstrated by the Leadership
Giving Society Membership.
To attend the dinner, a minimum dona-
tion of $500 was requested, with a contri-
bution of $1000 or more required for mem-
bership in the leadership group. Living
up to his banker background, Ed Meggs,
President of the Madison County Commu-
nity Bank, thanked everyone for their gen-
'erous donations and cordially invited oth-
ers in attendance to give. In the process,
several diners increased their donation to
Leadership Giving Society level and were
immediately met with warm praise and
Following dinner, numerous testimoni-
als were offered, reminding everyone of
the true purpose of the dinner and enor-
mous role the United Way plays in our
community Several notable comments
came from Heather Mitchell, Vice. Presi-
dent and Resource Developer for United
Way Mitchell extended her gratitude for
all the hard work in making the evening
such a success. As she was wrapping up,,
she gave a very compelling explanation re-
garding the nature and importance of
United Way programs throughout Madi-
son County She said without them essen-
tial services to children, the elderly and
needy families in general would not be
As a community, there is one very evi-
dent reality in Madison., Until the county
can build a commercial base of business-
es sufficient to support the families of our
county, we will continue to depend on the
work of organizations like the United Way

of the Big Bend.' That dependence may
never pass, but for now, it's absolutely es-
* sential.
Most People have become cynical about
giving, especially to large civic organiza-
tions. There's always a reason not to give.
Some think, "I'm too little," and ask,
"what can I do," or "where can I start?"
Well it's simple really Start where you are
and do what you can.
That is precisely the core principle be-

previous notions, or lack of awareness,

Madison First.

By Nell Dobbs
Macedonia Sign: This could be your turning point!
Good news for us: Elias Paulk, a young experienced
preacher, teacher and friend is now our interim youth
minister and we give thanks and pray for the youth and
for him as they labor together.
Sunday School attendance was 135! We're praying for
150. Interesting lesson about Nebuchadnezzar, who
failed to acknowledge God as the real power in the pow-
erful kingdom (Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the
Seven Wonders of the Ancient World), was punished
seven years by living as a wild animal, eating grass as
an ox, wet alone from dew, hair grew long like the eagle
and his nail grew like bird's claws and then at the end of
seven years, he extolled and honored the King of Heav-
en, whose works are all truth Daniel 4. Amen!
Pray earnestly for Neva Willis facing surgery (one of
our neighbor), for Gena Poole (another neighbor) with
health problems, Teresa Gallegos who was to have had
hip surgery yesterday and her brother, Don Guyot, now
living with them; Martha Davis not well at all and ex-
pected to have had surgery this week; for our family (re-
ally his) and him living at Lake Park Nursing Home
(and others there and other nursing homes); his sister,
Kathryn, not well at all, her daughter. Geraldine who
twisted her foot as she got up from planting flowers and
broke every bone in her ankles, awaiting surgery eight
weeks now; his sister, Bettie; very bad in Windsor
Manor in Starke; for Bob Workman of Starke, friend of
Iduma Smith's sons; for his sister, Emaline, who fell
.Sunday, September 16, taken to Lake City then airlifted
to Shands in Gainesville during surgery Monday on bro-
ken leg, had a heart attack, all four of them from Lake
Butler, Jesse and I saw all of them Sunday. We picked
Lil' Jess up there later and then had pizza and visited
with John and Judy (Lundell) and April and Melissa,
who had a cast on an arm, which she broke while cheer-
leading). Judy's mother, Ann Agner, was there over the
weekend and celebrated her birthday.
I appreciated Jay Blanton visiting Marjell.
Birthdays: Marshall Pike, September 22; Thelma De-
Hart, September 23; Juanita Ragans, September 24 (her
family invites us to share her 80th birthday at her house
on Saturday, September 29, from 2-5 p.m.; Lora Ragans,

Baptist Church

September 27; Howell Edwards, Matthew Greene and
Bobby Kinsey, September.28; and Michael Anglin, Sep-
tember 20. May the Lord bless all of them.
Congratulations and prayers for Lesley Ann Putnal
and Sidney Kirk Bontrager as they marry on Saturday,
October 6, at the Wardlaw Smith-Goza Mansion.
Congratulations and prayers for Hailee Victoria
Rosenbaum, born September 19, as she is now the joy of
Nicole's and David's lives and her grandparents and
great-grandparents blessings upon them.
Prayers of comfort for all sad ones-the Herring Fami-
ly in the death of Thelma Henry Thompson of Jack-
sonville-our Sandra's aunt, sister of her mother Ernes-
tine and of Eathelle Denson and her uncle M.C.; for Roy
Smith and family in the death of his brother, Joe Rob, of
California; for Jackie 'Johnson in the recent death of
her borther, Tommy Pepera. She had spent many hours
and days with him before his death and when I saw her,
she was just home from being with Kin as he had seri-
ous surgery on his lower eyelid. Also, she asked me to
thank everyone those of our church and others-for the
many expressions of love, concern and especially
prayers for Tina and family and for them. Bless all of
Hahira Hernandez blessed us with her song. Preach-
er Ronnie Combass spoke about Lake Yale. Some of the
deacons and wives were there for Deacons Retreat then
he gave the offertory prayer. Juanita played piano.
Chancel Choir sang "In Christ Alone." Preacher's mes-
sage was "Seeking Salvation from Sin" as he spoke
about Peter and Cornelius and the way God had caused'
them to be the ones to begin taking Christ's message to
the Gentiles.
This Sunday, the 30th, in morning service, we will ob-
serve the Lord's Supper, then in evening service, at 6
p.m., there will be a Committee Training Workshop and
the speaker will be Bill Carmichael, Discipleship Train-
ing Director of the Florida Baptist Convention.
On October 2, WOM meeting at 6:30 in the church par-
lor. On October 3, SAM field trip to Missibn San Luis in
Remember October is World Hunger Awareness
Month and also Maguire State Missions Offering.
Jesus is the Light of the World and we pray we will be
shining lights in a dark world! Amen!

Day Set For

By Dan Buchanan
There are only a few short weeks left until the "event
of the year" happens at Hickory Grove, and that is, of
course, Founder's Day '07. Things are coming together
and the folks at the church are working every Saturday,
getting ready for the folks to come and enjoy a day in the
The cane is growing at Elwyn's house, and when'you
read this article, a few rounds of delightfully good tast-
ing syrup will have already been made. Elwyn and his
crew will cook for at least three Saturdays leading up to
October 20, so enough syrup will be available for you to
Last Saturday, the folks at church boiled up nearly 25
bushels of peanuts, and they are in the freezer, just wait-
ing for the final boiling so you can get all the boiled
peanuts to eat that you desire. It is a tradition that we
have good, boiled peanuts available for Founder's Day
And, by the way, the garden is growing really good,
and you will have a chance to see a mule plowing at
Founder's Day this year, just like in the old days when
our grandfathers and great grandfathers used to farm
with mules. There were no tractors 75 years ago, but
farming was still a huge industry, and the mules were a
major part of our early American Heritage.
So, mark your calendars, and plan to be at Hickory
Grove on October 20 to taste, smell and feel things from
past years. You will certainly get a blessing by attend-

Blessed [is] the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his
delight [is] in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that
bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. -Psalms 1:1-3

Fundamentals Support Commercial

Most commercial real estate markets are enjoying relative-
ly low vacancy rates and healthy rent growth from a funda-
mentally sound economy according to the latest COMMER-
CIAL REAL ESTATE OUTLOOK of the National Association
of Realtors(R).
NAR Senior Economist Lawrence Yun said, "Commercial
real estate responds to economic growth and job creation,
which have been fairly strong over the past two years and have
created the need for additional commercial space," he said.
"These fundamentals will continue to support commercial
real estate markets in 2008. There has not been much over-
building in the commercial sectors, and investors are more di-
Yun said pricing for some commercial real estate has been
at a record high, and capitalization rates have been at historic
lows. "Normalization of prices may be occurring, but it isn't
clear what the definition of normal might be in the current
market given the repricing of risk in the capital market. In
short, the difference between the cash flow on a typical prop-
erty and its price is close to a maximum, indicating prices may
even out."
A record $257.0 billion was invested in commercial real es-
tate in the first seven months of 2007, aup from $146.7 billion in
same period in 2006; that total does not include transactions
valued at less than $5 million, or of investments in the hospi-
tality sector
Cindy Chandler of Charlotte, N.C., chair of the Realtors(R)
Commercial Alliance, said there have been some problems re-
cently regarding the availability of capital. "Over-reaction to
credit concerns in the financial markets could limit the avail-
ability of capital needed by private investors; but overall the
situation does not appear to have significantly impacted insti-
tutional-grade commercial properties," she said. "We're re-
turning to the fundamentals and deal structuring of the mid
90s, and may see some dampening in investment activity but
there is a lot of momentum in commercial real estate.
"We see the commercial sectors holding at a healthy level of
activity in most of the country although there could be some
slowing as a result of postponed transactions and delays in de-
cision making."
The NAR forecast in four major commercial sectors analy-

ses quarterly data for various tracked metro areas. The sectors
are the office, industrial, retail and multifamily markets.
Metro data were provided by Torto Wheaton Research and
Real Capital Analytics.
Office Market
The office sector is the most favored by investors, with
strong rent growth this year The cost of steel and other factors
have helped minimize speculative construction in most mar-
kets. The demand for space is expected to remain strong into
2008, and areas'with strong job growth are benefiting the most
Older vacated space is lagging on the market in some cities.
Office vacancies are projected to edge up to an average of
12.9 percent in the fourth quarter from 12.5 percent in the
fourth quarter of 2006, and then dip to 12.4 percent by the end
of 2008. Annual rent growth in the office sector is forecast at
6.1 percent in 2007 and 3.1 percent next year, after rising 5.2 per-
cent in 2006.
Projections for the third quarter show areas with the lowest
office vacancies include New York City; Ventura County
Calif.; Seattle; Los Angeles; Honolulu; and Long Island, N.Y., all
with vacancy rates of 9.4 percent or less.
Net absorption of office space in 57 markets tracked, which
includes the leasing of new space coming on the market as
well as space in existing properties, should total 53.8 million "
square feet this year and 65.1 million in 2008, compared with
78.0 million last year
Office building transaction volume in the first seven
months of this year totaled $147.0 billion, a record for the peri-
od, which is 53 percent higher than the same period in 2006.
Equity funds accounted for 43 percent of office building pur-
chases, followed by private investors at 21 percent.
Industrial Market
Although the main driver for the industrial market contin-
ues to be the need for warehouse and distribution space, par-
ticularly in ports and distribution hubs, the rebirth of the
technology sector is fueling demand for flex space, with a
marked increase in markets such as San Jose, Calif.; Portland,
Ore.; Seattle and Phoenix.
Much of the new industrial supply has been on a build-to-
suit basis,and building obsolescence remains a factor for dis-
tribution facilities.
Vacancy rates in the industrial sector are likely to average
9.6 percent in the fourth quarter and 9.4 percent by the end of
2008, compared with 9.4 percent in the fourth quarter of 2006.
Annual rent growth will more than double to 3.9 percent by the
end of this year, and is estimated at 3.7 percent in the fourth
quarter of 2008, up from a 1.4 percent annual rise at the end of

The areas with the lowest industrial vacancies include Los
Angeles; Albuquerque; Tucson; Orange County Calif.; Port-
land, Ore.; and San Francisco, all with vacancy rates of 5.4 per-
cent or less.
Net absorption of industrial space in 58 markets tracked
will probably total 125.0 million square feet in 2007 and 165.6
million next year, down from 202.8 million in 2006.
Industrial transaction volume in the first seven months of
2007 was $26.8 billion, up 13 percent from the same period in
2006. Private investors accounted for 36 percent of industrial
purchases, followed by equity funds at 25 percent.
Retail Market
Recovery in the retail market has been held back by high
levels of new supply but developers appear to have gotten the
message. The majority of new space on the market today is in
non-regional malls, but new available space should see
marked declines in 2008. Credit problems have not yet impact-
ed retail sales, but will be watched closely
Vacancy rates in the retail sector are expected to rise to 9.3
percent in the fourth quarter from 8.1 percent at the end of
2006; vacancies are forecast at 8.9 percent by the end of next
year. Average retail rent is projected to rise 2.9 percent in 2007
'and 1.0 percent next year, following a 3.9 percent increase in
Retail markets with the lowest vacancies include San Fran-
cisco; Orange County Calif; San Jose, Calif.; Ventura County
Calif; Washington, D.C.; and Las Vegas,'all with vacancy rates
of 5.1 percent or less.
Net absorption of retail space in 53 tracked markets should
be 12.1 million square feet this year and 19.0 million in 2008, up
from 10.7 million last year.
Retail transaction volume m the first seven months of this
year totaled $37.4 billion, up from $22.3 billion in same period
in 2006.
Private investors accounted for 35 percent of transaction
volume, followed by institutional investors at 22 percent and

On September 18, Madison

nual College Fair, which was or-
ganized and sponsored by the
Madison County Health Depart-
The event featured college
and military information that
could be instrumental in help-
ing students set a course for
their future.
Students were able to spend
the morning browsing the vari-

ous tables set up in the high
school gymnasium. College ta-
bles included the likes of Flori-
da State University, University
of South Florida, University of
Florida, and North Florida
Community College, just to
name a few. The boys in camou-
flage were out and about man-
ning a table devoted to the Unit-
ed States Army
College fairs are tools to get
students interested in school.
The information is
placed at their finger-

tips offering a number of dif-
ferent opportunities. Commu-
nity colleges are represented,
as well as universities, and al-
ternatives like the military are
a great choice.
The Health Department has
been organizing the event for
several years, and Kim Barn-
hill, Madison-Jefferson County
Health Department Adminis-
trator, spearheads the operation
each year.

in the event include Taylor

This isn't Even's first time in America in 2005,
around Easter, he visited Washington D.C. with his fa-
ther and brother.
He's had some trouble acclimating to the culture.
Even pointed out that. it's tnuch firmer in America than
Norway. "In America," Even commented, "you do this,
this, and this. There isn't much of a choice.
"School is a lot different here. It's a lot stricter,"
Even said. "[In Lillehammer] as long aswe know the in-
formation we don't have to be in class. There aren't any
repercussions like getting zeroes." Even also pointed
out that administrators in the school are more con-
cerned with where the students are at all times.

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC)
wrapped up an eventful
three-day meeting Friday
at St Petersburg.
During the Wednesday
session, Commissioners
postponed, at least until
December, approval of a
new species management

reclassify manatees from
endangered to threatened.
However,; Commissioners
approved reclassification
of gopher tortoises from
species of special concern
to threatened.
The FWC also will re-
view a draft management
plan and rule proposals to
remove bald eagles from
the imperiled species list
entirely. Final action on
that issue may take place
during the FWC's Decem-
ber meeting at Key Largo.
Commissioners also ap-
proved four rule proposals
concerning permit re-
quirements for activities
involving marine turtles.
In addition, Commis-
sioners heard staff re-
ports about the agency's
deer management pro-
gram, proposed rule
changes to wildlife and
freshwater fisheries regu-
lations for 2008-09 and rec-
ommendations for the fu-

State Farm Bureau President Wins

The Madison County Farm Bureau Young Farmer
and Rancher Committee proudly presented a .22 caliber
rifle to State President John Hoblick this week. Presi-
dent Hoblick had purchased tickets for the gun raffle
several weeks ago, and came to Madison to retrieve his
winning prize.
, The local YF& R group, headed by Willie Agner, Jr.
was trying to raise money to help pay for nearly 20 local
Young Farmers from Madison who attended the State
Annual Young Farmer Conference held earlier in the

summer. This was the first time the group had done a
gun raffle. The drawing was held at the Annual Meeting
of the Madison Farm Bureau last week, and Hoblick's
name came out of the drawing box.
The .22 rifle was donated by the local Madison Com-
munity Bank, Freddy Pitts, Gordon Tractor and also
Wally Davis of Farmers Supply Hoblick had bought five
tickets on the drawing about a month ago.
Also, while Hoblick visited Farmers Supply to re-
trieve. his prize, he also stopped by the local Madison
X;,--m : t,- ,....



County Farm Bureau office, where he observed some
construction going on at the office.
Farm Bureau is adding another office to their present
building, and also some file room space. The new office
will be for Glen King, who will be starting as a new
Farm Bureau Insurance Agent, within a few days.
Hoblick is in his very first year at the helm of the
Florida Farm Bureau, and is a fern grower from the Vo-
lusia County area. He got his start in Farm Bureau as a
young FFA student by joining the Young Farmer and
Rancher Committee in his county. He has made it to the
top of the state's largest General Farm Organization,
following Carl Loop, Jr. of Jacksonville, who retired af-
ter serving the organization as President for the past 24
