FRDAP Grants Are Pots Of Gold,

For Madison County

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental
Protection is the state
agency that administers
the Florida Recreation De-
velopment Assistance Pro-
gram, under the Division
of Recreation and Parks.
No need to remember
all the big department
names; suffice to remem-
ber that almost three mil-
lion dollars of parks and
recreation facilities- have
come into the community
in the past ten years from
this source. Oh yes, with
no, absolutely no, payback
or matching required.

Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Michael Curtis, October 18, 2007
The Madison County Recreation Complex was made
possible by FRDAP funding.

Jim Parish, Parish
and Associates, is the
grant consultant for Madi-
son County and the Towns
of Lee and Greenville.
"For some small communi-
ties, these grants are the
only source for developing
parks and recreation facili-
ties," Parish explained.
The application process is
detailed and the expertise
that Parish brings is vital.
"Jim Parish has been such
incredible help. He has
been an incredible re-
source for all of us," says
Cheryl Archambault, Lee
Town Manager.

p.m. Madison County Sheriff's Office re-
sponded to JoAnn Bridges Academy after
a, call came from staff members that
they needed assistance controlling a
S client who was combative and unruly.
When Deputy Kevin Anderson and Sgt.,
David Harper arrived they spoke with
staff members who advised that a 16-year-
old black female client had been involved
in a verbal altercation with staff. The in-
cident turned into a physical altercation
with staff when the client grabbed a pair
of scissors and a dresser drawer and be-
gan to swing at staff members, telling
them she would cut them.
While staff members were trying to
calm the client down, she began to swing
the dresser drawer again. At this point,
the staff tried to restrain the client and
she fell to the floor, hitt ing her head on the

I Love You
Last week, I wrote something in this column and tried
to be tongue-in1,lc~he lqU e whole thing. I wish that
I had never written it because it made me sound mean
an dike a gossipmonger.'Iwas just trying to be/cute and
it backfired on me in a really bad way. People were hurt
about what I had written and, for that, I am apologizing.
At least three different people called with complaints
about the Tim Tebow-Urban Meyer remark I had made.
One or two of them were not even Gator fans and the one
that I know is a Gator fan is a man that I respect tremen-
dously He told me a few things about Tim Tebow that I
didn't know.-These things make me respect the young
quarterback as a person.
My Gator fan friend told me that Tebow had spent
summers as a missionary to the Philippines and that
one of Tebow's role models is former Gator quarterback
Danny Wuerrfel. Like Wuerrfel, Tebow;has a love for the
Lord and for others. Instead of dragging him down in
the mud, with my warped sense of humor, I should have
lifted him up as an example to others. I do also know that
the boy has a ton of talent on the football field and he de-
serves all the accolades he is entitled to.
This past two weeks, I have been under a tremendous
amount of stress. In addition to the normal stress at
work, I have had the added burden of worrying about
my father, who at this writing is still in the VA Hospital.
in Gainesville, and worrying about my brother and sis-
ter. One thing I have learned during this time, however,
is that we don't tell others how much we love them dur-
ing our daily lives. It's something that we all should
practice telling our family, our friends and even our co-
workers. Not only should we tell them that, we should
show them Christian love.
Continue to remember my father in your prayers.
I love all of you!

Rita Ventry, Community Assistance Consultant, Di-
vision of Recreation and Parks, describes the FRDAP
grant process, "When requesting funding, the applica-
tion is reviewed and scored. Scoring is on a point sys-
tem along various categories. The Capital Improvement
Plan, population density and, public involvement in the
process, are a few category examples. Points are then to-
taled, and if sufficient, funds are awarded."
At the end of the day however, the thing about these
grants that is the most impressive is jthe fact that re-
quests up to 200 thousand dollars have, no matching or
payback requirement. "These limits do vary from com-
munity to community Madison County falls under the
REDI provisions," Ventry noted. "REDI stands for Rur-
al Economic Development Initiative. It's a project that
started back with Governor Bush, and while it doesn't
add points to scoring an application, it does increase the
funding range available before matching is required,"
she added.
Of course, the use must fit the grant criterion, and
all the "Ts" must be crossed, but when it's done, projects
like the Hayes Park in Greenv ile, The softball fields and
sports lighting in Lee, and the Madison County Recre-
ation Complex are the results. There are a half dozen
other projects in the area; all told, almost three million
dollars of permanent parks and recreation infrastruc-

Country Roads
Have you ever taken the time to enjoy a drive down a
country road? I mean really enjoy everything you can
see from a country road in Madison County. I've found it
is the best way to relieve stress-and leave your problems
behind. It's just me, and the road in God's country.
I drive in all directions on the roads thaflead in and
out of Madison all the time getting to work, while work-
ing, going to town for groceries, or paying bills, or what-
ever the reason, just the same as everyone else. A lot of
times I'm just trying to get from one place to another the
fastest and shortest way possible, not paying much at-
tention to all the beauty and peacefulness that I'm pass-
ing by without blinking.
Lately, call it getting older, but I've calmed down and
I take drives to nowhere just to enjoy what I've been
missing. Believe me, gas prices are high, but it's worth it
when I feel so much better when I return home.
Madison County has 3 main roads through it.' High-
way 90 east and west, Highway 53 north and south, and
of course Interstate 10 (state road 8). Other roads that
get you in and out of town are 221, 360, 14, 150. Roads
with multiple names are 591 or Rocky Ford, 146 or Little
Cat, and the famous 145 which is known by a lot of
names such as Colin Kelly Highway, and the Valdosta
highway. If you are going to Georgia, or by the Madison
Highway, if you are heading into Madison, in Georgia
this same road changes to 33, in the city of Madison it
becomes ;Livingston Street. Highway 53 and Highway
150 are also confusing because they stop, go up a block
and continue on.
Have you ever tried giving directions to someone
from out of town, to get to your home? It's hard, because
of the many roads that lead into, through, and out of
Madison County It has taken me years of driving expe-
rience to figure out where they go, but all in all, they
lead us home in Madison County.
Let's not forget the abundance of dirt and canopy
roads that intertwine throughout the county I've driven
on a lot of them being just curious to where they come
out. In most cases, sometimes to my surprise, they all
come out to some place on a main road that is familiar to
me. I can go one mile from my home, get on a dirt road
and go all the way to Georgia.
Dirt roads make travel a lot cooler under a canopy of
Live Oaks and other trees decorated in 'Spanish moss.
They should be avoided at night, during storms, or right
after a storm, as some become 6 inch thick mud-tracks,
and some of the beautiful towering trees may be down
across the road, taking power, cable, and phone lines
with them, blocking your way, with no turn around. Not
to mention it is a lot harder to stop for deer, hogs, opos-
sums, and other wild critters darting across the road.
You may think you have seen it all, but I am never
surprised at what I see going down, running across, or
blocking the roadway in Madison County I believe I
have seen it all over the years.
Of course there are cars, some fast, some really slow,
pick-up trucks, then there's the log trucks driving away
with all the county's pine trees, other semi-trucks just
passing through. Then there is a season for everything
in Madison. Like tractors hauling hay, or baling, or
planting equipment or machinery There's the county
road dept. with their mowing and grading equipment,
simple farm tractors moving from field-to-field, some-
times with wagons full of hay, melons, tobacco, or other
various crops after harvest. Occasionally, we see mo-
bile homes; on a few occasions I've seen a whole two sto-
ry house going down main street. (Boy, did this cause a
ruckus, stopping traffic for a while.)
Oh there's more. I've seen motorcycles, 4-wheelers,
golf carts, even riding lawnmowers. Then you have the
bicycles; they have seasons too. There are also plenty of
wild and domestic animals and such that use our road-
ways as well. There are horses, some with riders, some
without; then we have cows, goats, dogs, hogs (some of
which were my own), chickens, crows, owls, snakes, tur-
tles, squirrels, opossum, armadillos, raccoons, alliga-
tors, turkeys and more. In some cases when these crea-
tures don't make it across the road, you can expect to
find hordes of buzzards using the road for their dining
room table. They tend to be brave souls and sometimes
end up in your car grill or windshield. Yes, it can be an
interesting trip in this county just getting from one
place to another. You never know what to expect and are
very seldom surprised what you might find around the
next bend.
I guess it's good that we are living in a slow paced
county with beauty, nature and surprises around every
curve. So, slow down; next time you get a chance, and re-
ally take in all the beauty along country roads in Madi-
son County
Nature at its best is flourishing with green grass,
. hay fields, farms, and several different varieties of flow-
ers and trees showing off their beautiful colors of the
rainbow. They all have their own seasons. You'll see
goldenrod, azaleas, crepe myrtle, confederate roses, wis-
teria, flowering peach, hydrangea, camellias, daffodils,
phlox, and more that are responsible for beautifying the
roadways, homes, and
fields along the way, It
seems there is always
some color to catch your
eye, which reminds us a
what time of year it is. dasieds,

The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 3A


Can Lead To Trouble
"Charge it" is a phrase that has become a necessity to
many Floridians. Don't join the numbers that have
overextended their credit. Today, more and more people
are using charge accounts and credit cards as a conve-
nient way to "buy now and pay later" not only for luxu-
ry items and large purchases, but also clothing, furnish-
ings, Christmas gifts, or vacation expenses. Charge ac-
counts are convenient, especially for busy people. Shop-
ping is done easily over the telephone or the buyer can
shop without cash or without waiting for change.
Convenient as credit buying is, it has two decided dis-
advantages. Unless the charger is cautious, it's easy to
overbuy A second hazard is the extra charge. An ac-
count longer than the 30-day period generally is consid-
ered a revolving, flexible or budget account. The store
generally will charge interest on the unpaid balance at
the beginning of the billing period. This interest can
add up over time. Some creditors may automatically
charge a basic service charge each month. In addition,
there may be an annual credit card fee associated with
the credit card.
Before signing a contract, find out in dollars and
cents exactly what the charge for credit will be. It means
you may have to read the fine print on the back of the
credit offer. Language can get tricky and sometimes
that low interest rate is only applicable for the first few
According to Extension Financial Management Spe-
cialists, a good rule to follow to determine your family's
credit limit is to add your fixed and flexible expenses (in-
cluding savings and irregular payments) and subtract
from your income. The amount you have left is the max-
imum you can afford to spend or save. Decide what part
of this you can afford to commit for credit payments.
Never obligate yourself to a debt you cannot repay.
Credit is a tool, do not abuse it.

County Extension office.

ing and very pleasant blond guy. Then of course, we re-
member his many years of service to his community as
Tim's predecessor. Jim Catron's speech was also one of
which we would like a copy how about it, Jim?
Last Saturday we thoroughly enjoyed the LVFD and
Town of Lee combined garage/yard sale. Besides the
booths there were sausage biscuits, hot dogs, hamburg-
ers, doughnuts, coffee and boiled peanuts; Jada gave us
free ice cream and water at her Supervisor of Elections
booth and the Lonnie Jolson band furnished first class
-and free! entertainment. They were really great.
Cheryl was quoted as saying, "There's no better place to
live on earth than right here..." and we thoroughly
During the above event, one of LVFD's finest young
firemen, Scott Thomas, was honored with a memorial
ride which consisted of a huge convoy of motorcyclists
who 'made the rounds' of all fire departments in the
county. It was quite a sight and sound as they all
roared off from the Lee station.
* We wish Bobby Bembry a-fast -recovery from his re-
:iet' fall'- Bobby broke'"h'fsffip and was operated on
Tueidaiy in Shands Gainesviile.'Please include him in
your prayers.
Our son-in-law, Charlie Rector, is in the hospital in Or-
ange Park he is having complications from a knee re-
placement with resultant infection and son Pat, who
had a serious operation on his leg (the femur was re-
moved, broken, had two inches of bone and a steel rod
added) is, of course, still having quite a lot of pain and
now the doctors say he has a screw loose so something
else will have to be done. His sisters are making jokes
about it 'we always knew you had a screw loose, Pat!'
At least he can laugh about it, too.
Carlton Bembry and wife Brenda came by this morn-
ing. They had been with Bobby during his operation
and were on their way back to Atlanta. Carlton has lost
some weight but looks good considering how serious his
recent operation was.
Carlton Langford has finally been able to go home fol-
lowing long weeks of rehab after his very serious acci-
dent. But all of these still need your prayers.
Daughter Vicki, who spent a few days here (she, too,
hurt her leg at work just before starting her vacation
and missed a week of it) was able to go on to Atlanta
this morning for a few days with sister Joan and family.
And we are still waiting for liberation from our one-
room 'cell'. Hopefully that will be soon! We do hope
everyone enjoys the great month of October just don't

American Red Cross Disaster Services

On Alert For Those In Need

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Capital Area Chapter of the American Red
Cross Disaster Services covers eight counties including
Madison, but they measure their responsibilities one
resident at a time. "There are 400,000 people in our cov-
erage area, and our goal is to make sure each and every
one of them is prepared for disasters of all types, from
house fires to hurricanes," Chief Operating Officer
Chris Floyd stated.
"We are that agency that's on the scene at 2:00 in the
morning or 2:00 in the afternoon. The house fire is put
out and the fire truck rolls away; that's when we're
there with immediate assistance," Floyd added. As far
as our funding, we benefit from the contributions made
to the United Way of the Big Bend. Generally speaking,

the Capital Area Chapter partners to provide a wide
range of services.
Floyd has been with The American Red Cross for
over 35 years. But in 1988, his relationship with Madi-
son County was taken to a new level following a tornado
disaster. "The tornado hit near the Winn-Dixie on US 90
and then moved to the NFCC campus. When the winds
died down, ARCDS was there, and we've literally been
working closely ever since," Floyd explained.
"Immediate response" is not just a goal for ARCDS;
it's a standard. "In the house fire example for instance,
we would be ready with immediate financial assistance
to provide food, clothing and shelter," Floyd added. The
actual field response element of Disaster Services is
only a piece of a much bigger pie, however. "Getting
those 400,000 people, representing both residents and
businesses, prepared for the various disasters that may
strike, mostly without warning, is always a priority,"
Floyd went on to say.
Ten new shelter trailers have recently been added to
the existing shelter, pet and entertainment trailers. One
shelter trailer is parked at Madison County High School

and an entertainment trailer is parked at the Central
School. Shelter trailers contain cots, blankets, emer-
gency supplies, and "comfort" kits to ease the aftermath
of disaster victims. The pet trailer allows family pets to
remain with victims, creating another source of relief,
and the entertainment trailer has games, toys and other
supplies to address the needs of children of disaster.
Madison County is fortunate to have a.stiong inter-
nal disaster defense. Emergency Management Director
Jim Stanley, Sheriff Pete Bucher, and Fire Chief Alfred
Martin to name a few, stand ready to provide essential
services from their respective departments. Training,
technology and community awareness are all part of
their recipe for protection and survival. Behind them
though, and in coordination with them, the county is
also very fortunate to have the Capital Area Chapter of
the American Red Cross Disaster Services.
The Capital Area Chapter is located at 187 Office
Plaza Dr., Tallahassee. For further information, and to
learn more about the critical role this United Way
Agency provides to the community, call (850) 878-6080 or

Ever Wonder What Your Money Really Does?

Deidra Newman, whose contribution to the community and United Way truly sets the standard, has a life-
long history with the United Way While reminding everyone that Madison money stays in Madison, she
took a moment to provide answers to the question so many ask, "Where does the money go?"
"- $1 per pay period provides 520 pounds of food from second harvest.
-* $5 per pay period the cost of one fast food meal for you provides 75 lunch-
es for children from low-income families.
-" $10 per pay period the cost of a movie ticket and candy bar for you pro
vides 8 days of foster care for a youth who has been abused.
a* $12 per pay period the cost of a music CD for you help provide a security
deposit for a low-income family made homeless by a fire.
A* $21 per pay period the cost of a dinner for two will clothe a family of four
who has lost everything
United Way is a major force in the recovery and rebuilding efforts of critical needs areas such as those dev-
astated by hurricanes. However, United Way is so much more. Madison County United way is a community
wide partnership, which examines the needs of, and provides funds to assist in meeting, Madison County's
unique conditions. These local issues include prevention and intervention of physical, mental and sexual
abuse of both children and adults, feeding the hungry, helping children and youth succeed through leadership
and prevention programs, improving access to health care, assisting those who are losing or have lost a loved
one, helping senior citizens in need and promoting overall financial stability

Michael Curtis

The United Way of the Big Bend is pleased to sup-
port the needs of Madison County. Over the years,
United Way's purpose has remained constant. We are
dedicated to supporting the greatest variety of human
service agencies in the local area and reaching people
from all walks of life and income groups. The local of-
fice strives to address the most prominent need areas
in this community: youth development, emergency ser-
vices, physical health, children's services, senior ser-
vices, family support, services to the disabled, commu-
nity support, and substance abuse.
All money raised in Madison County stays in the
county When the month of October ends, funds
will be totaled and distributed, so please take a
moment and give generously For more in-
formation please call Mary Carol

Help Your Pet Shed Pounds

(NAPSI) If your pooch is looking a
little pudgy or your feline seems a bit fat,
vets say it's important to take action.
Obese pets face many of the same
health problems that threaten people-
and, as in the human population, pet obe-
sity has become an epidemic. Sixty-three
percent of American homes now own a
pet, and as many as 40 percent of those
pets are estimated to be overweight.
"Whether you've got two legs or four,
effective weight management is an ab-
solute must. In fact, studies show that
limiting a dog's caloric intake could ex-
tend his life by as much as two years,"
says veterinary nutritionist Dr. Edward
Moser. *
So how do you tip the weight loss
scales in your pet's favor? Dr. Moser says
pets lose weight the same.way people do-
+ht roii h dlietonel an vcercisc Try thsci tips:

Choose a Balanced Diet-Dr. Moser
recommends the Wellness brand, with
natural human-quality .ingredients that
fulfill a cat's or dog's nutritional needs.
,* Controlled Portions-Consider calorie
count and healthy serving sizes.
* Walk It Off-Take your pet for fre-
quent walks or at least be certain they
have room to romp.
See Your Vet-Ask your veterinarian if
your pet is at a healthy weight. If he's
not, ask for advice on shedding those
"Remember, two extra pounds on a 10-
pound cat is 20 percent-that's a lot," says
Dr. Moser. "It's important to watch your
pet's weight."

bubble cushioning, packaging peanuts, good-qualit

A survey recently commis-
sioned by The UPS Store
asked Americans a few
key questions about moving.
Consider these simple solutions
to common moving conundrums.
Worst Moving Nightmare:
Broken or missing items after
the move.
Easy Fix: Use new boxes and
packing supplies made specif-
ically for moving, pack items
securely with plenty of pad-
ding (or have a packaging or
moving expert pack them for
you), and label boxes clearly.

I .. L


spot for "Packing Central." This is where \ou % ill con-
sistently keep your tape, boxes, paper, bubble cushioning.
markers, etc. Place smaller items that ou'llI need to
take from room to room (like tape, packing paper, and
markers) in a basket or caddy for portablitr.

r Packing
. Now that you've laid the groundwork bN creating
an overall plan and lining up your resources. you'ree ready
for the real work. Utilize a few smart packing strategies .
now, and you'll reap the benefits later.
Start by keeping like things together Keep kitchen pots v .....' ' ,
.:with kitchen pans. Place tablecloths with other linens. ......
Also, be sure to label boxes clearly and be as specific as
possible. For example, don't just write "books," be more
detailed, like "reference manuals." This t ill be in valuable -
as you unpack.
Proper packing technique can't be o erstated.
Take the time to pack your boxes careful[ and securel'. A
new moving box provides the strength 1 ou need for the in-
evitable stacking that occurs
as boxes are loaded and unloaded on mnot ing d,,, Line
boxes with at least two inches of packaging peanuts on all
sides and use bubble cushioning to protect an Thing frag-
ile. Use quality packing tape on all seams (a% old masking.
cellophane, or duict tape).
Another way to ensure that moving da\ goes smoothly\
is to label boxes with color-coordinated labels. Designate
a color for each room and place that colored label on the
appropriate box..Then, place color labels on the door a\ s
in the new house to provide a clear visual ctie for % here
..boxes go.
.When moving day approaches, keep a fe\ thinL.s in
mind for those final boxes. Think survit al mode. What
will you need first in your new home? Cleaning supplies.
paper towels, toilet paper, garbage bags, a first aid kit.
snacks, and drinks are key items, but e' er one's must-
have list will be a little different. Also, don't forget to
pack overnight bags fdr each member of the family ii th
toiletries and a change of clothing. Finally, if ',ou ha'%e
children, pack a special box for each child to open upon
arrival. Include favorite blankets and stuffed animals, fainm-.
ily photos, a few toys, crayons, coloring books,. and an, "'
: other essential belongings.
Congratulations, you just elevated your mo ming 10!

Madison County Central School Yearbook Is Laid-Out To Succeed

By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Why did you decide to
take yearbook class? "It
sounded' like something
fun to do for the school,"
replied a beaming D.W.
Jarvis. He, along with 18
other seventh and eighth
graders at Madison Coun-
ty Central School, make
up Suzanne Griffin's year-
book class.
The students sell ads
to businesses and parents
as well as lay out all of the
pages for the printer. It's
hard work, and it certain-
ly isn't an easy A, but it's'
worth it.

Terra Redditt de-
signed a full-page ad for
her church, Faith Baptist.
Not only do the twelve,
thirteen, and fourteen
year old publishers build
the yearbook from the
bottom up, they actually
have to implement graph-
ic design know-how. All
without the aid of the fab-
ulous invention known as
the personal computer.
The yearbook must be
100 percent complete by
February 4. The ads must
be sold and designed; the
pages laid out, and the
book must be at the print-
ers in only a few short
months. But these guys,
they've got everything un-
der control.
According to year-
book sponsor, Mrs. Grit-
fin, the whole ordeal costs
$20,000. That's a lot of
bucks for a book, huh?
The book consists of 132
pages, including pictures

Griffin says that the staff
took an oath of silence,
but Keeley Smith spoke
up, "I never took that
oath." (She neglected to
say how much she'd sell
the secret of the hush-

Madison County Cen-

young. We've sold more

Nutritionists have known for
decades that seafood is a low-fat source
of top-quality protein, and that the
health benefits of eating seafood make
it one of the best choices for growing
children, active adults, and the elderly.
Recent studies show that eating seafood
can decrease your risk of heart attack,
stroke, obesity, and hypertension. The
following information is brought to you
by NOAA, the U.S. Food and Drug Ad-
ministration, the U.S. Department of
Agriculture, and the Environmental
Protection Agency
Shopping for Seafood
Buying your seafood from a store
that follows basic food handling rules
helps ensure that the seafood you buy is
of 'the highest quality and safe to eat.
Use careful shopping sense when visit-
ing the seafood counter and fish mon-
ger's stand, paying close attention to the
overall cleanliness of the facility and
condition of the fish. Use these simple
steps to ensure the seafood you buy is
the healthiest, highest quality product
Selecting Fresh Fish
To be sure the safety of seafood is
being properly preserved, only buy fish
that is refrigerated or properly iced,
Fish should be displayed on a thick bed
of fresh ice that is not melting and
preferably in a case or under some type
of cover. Fish should be arranged with
the bellies down so that the melting ice
drains away from the fish, thus reduc-
ing the chances of spoilage.
Fish should smell fresh and mild,
not fishy, sour, or ammonia-like.
A fish's eyes should be clear and
bulge a little (except for a few naturally
cloudy-eyed fis types, such s alleye

Fish fillets should display no dark-
ening or drying around the edges. They
should have no green or yellowish dis-
coloration and should not appear dry or
mushy in any areas.
Selecting Shellfish: Special guide-
The Food and Drug Administration
requires shellfish harvesters and
processors of oysters, clams, and mus-
sels to put a tag on sacks or containers
of live shellfish (in the shell), and a la-
bel on containers or packages of
shucked shellfish. Tags and labels con-
tain specific information about the
product, including a certification num-
ber for the processor, which means that
the shellfish were harvested and
processed in accordance with national
shellfish safety controls. Ask to see the
tag or check the label when purchasing
In addition, follow these general
Discard Cracked/Broken Shellfish:
Throw away clams, oysters, and mussels
if their shells are cracked or broken.
Do a "Tap Test": Live clams, oys-
ters, and mussels will close up when the
shell is tapped. If they don't close when
tapped, do not select them.
Check for Leg Movement: Live
crabs and lobsters should show some leg
movement. They spoil rapidly after
death, so only live crabs and lobsters
should be selected and prepared.

Cooking and Serving Safe, Healthy
Thaw frozen seafood gradually by
placing it in the refrigerator overnight.
If you have to thaw seafood quickly, ei-
ther seal it in a plastic bag and immerse
it in cold water, or if the food will be
cooked immediately, thereafter, mi-
crowave it on the "defrost" setting and
stop the defrost cycle while the fish is
still icy but pliable.
When you're preparing fresh or
thawed seafood, it's important to prevent
bacteria from the raw seafood from
spreading to ready-to-eat food. Take
these steps to avoid cross-contamination
between raw and cooked foods:
Wash hands thoroughly with soap
and warm water before and after han-
dling any raw food.
Wash the cutting board with soap
and hot water to remove food particles
and juices after using it for raw foods
such as seafood, and before using the
board for cooked or ready-to-eat foods or
preparing another food item.
Serving Seafood
Don't Cross-Contaminate, Cross-con-
tamination can happen once your
seafood is cooked, too. Here are simple
ways to keep your seafood safe when
1. Place cooked seafood on a clean
plate for serving. If cooked foods are
placed on an unwashed plate that previ-
ously held raw seafood, bacteria from
the raw food could contaminate the
cooked seafood.
2. Use clean utensils to serve food -

Florida Celebrates

Earth Science Week
Recognizing the important role of earth sciences, Gov-
ernor Charlie Crist and the Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection join states across the nation to recog-
nize October 14-20,2007. as Earth Science Week. Organized
by the American Geological Institute. Earth Science Week
promotes public awareness of the earth sciences and stew-
ardship of the Earth.
"Making scientifically-informed decisions is the key to
a healthy and sustainable environment," said DEP Secre-
tary Michael W Sole. "Geologists and other scientists pro-
vide critical information to preserve, restore and protect
our natural resources. Science is at the heart of the state's
exploration of groundbreaking technologies and strategies
that place our state at the forefront of the growing world-
wide movement to reduce greenhouse gases."
Using observations and measurements from the envi-
ronment that surrounds us, as well as from space, under-
water and underground, geoscientists evaluate Earth's pre-
sent state, foresee future changes and assess effects on life
and society DEP's Florida Geological Sturvey investigates
and monitors the state's aquifer systems and geology to
protect public health and natural resources and ensure
sound environmental management.
In celebration of Earth Science Week, the Florida Geo-
logical Survey will host its annual open house on Wednes-
day October 17. featuring activities and tour's to educate the
public on how earth sciences affect our daily lives. DEP is
partnering this year with Florida State University's De-
partment of Geological Sciences to offer tours of the

Beginning Oct. 1, a
new fee schedule will be in
effect for all recreational
licenses issued by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC).
During its 2007 session,
the Florida Legislature
passed a bill to increase
the fees for all recreation-
al saltwater and freshwa-
ter fishing and hunting li-
censes. Hunting license
fees were last increased in
1979 and fishing license
fees in 1989.
Bob Wattendorf, who
heads up marketing in.the
FWC's Division of Fresh-
water Fisheries Manage-
ment, said, "When fees for
fishing licenses were last
increased, in 1989, gaso-
line cost 9 cents a gallon.
But even with the new fee
increases, the cost of
hunting and fishing in
Florida falls below the me-
dian costs for the other 49
states. Also the percent-
age of increase is well be-
low the rise in the cost of
living seen since 1989."
All the fees from these
licenses go back into con-
serving fish and wildlife
resources and benefit an-
glers and hunters.
The increased revenue,
expected to total $1% mil-
lion annually within four
years, will not create new

programs, but will offset a
predicted $12.5-million
deficit by 2010, -said San-
dra Wilson, director of fi-
nance and budget at FWC.
)In addition to issuing the
licenses, FWC is charged
with directly conserving
fish and wildlife re-
sources, and it creates and
enforces rules and regula-
tions regarding hunting
and fishing in the state as
well as promoting boating
safety and access.
Florida remains the
number-one fishing desti-
nation in the United
States, according to the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser-
vice's 2006 national sur-
vey. In addition, Florida
ranks number-one in the
nation for its $11 billion
generated annually
through hunting, fishing
and wildlife-viewing ac-
tivities throughout the.
FWC presented its find-
ings to the Legislature
earlier this year. The pro-
jected deficit would leave
revenue streams for ma-
rine fisheries, freshwater
fisheries and hunting in
jeopardy. In addition, pro-
grams already in place,
such as those for pan-
thers, manatees and other
imperiled species, would
need funding to keep pace
with increased costs.

FWC Expands RSS Offerings

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
is making greater use of those
little, orange rectangles seen on
many Web sites to provide cus-
tomized delivery of news and in-
formation over the Internet.
Since 2005, the FWC has used
a technology called Really Sim-
ple Syndication commonly
known as RSS to alert interest-
ed parties when news releases
are published on its Web site:
MyFWC.com. Web sites common-
ly use the orange rectangle with
the letters "RSS" to denote pages
using this increasingly common
service. In recent weeks, the
FWC has doubled its offering of
"channels" or "feeds" to deliver
various categories of news re-
leases via RSS.
For more about RSS, includ-
ing a list of the FWC's feeds, go
to MyFWC.com RSS.html.
"Our first feeds covered top-
ics like hunting, fishing, law en-
forcement and wildlife." said
Scott Ball, Web editor With the
FWC's Community Relations Of-

fice. "As RSS became more com-
mon, we added channels for news
from our Tallahassee headquar-
ters and each of our five admin-
istrative regions as well as the
Fish and Wildlife Research Insti-

Users wishing to receive RSS
feeds from the FWC will need an
RSS reader on their computers.
There are numerous' readers
available online; most are free,

and installation is relatively
"Once you have a reader in-
stalled, go to
MvFWC.com-'RSS.html to sign up
for as many feeds as you wish."
Ball said. "The means of notifica-
tion vary among brands of read-
ers. but typically a window wMil
pop up in a corner of your screen
when a new alert is published."
In addition to news releases,
the FWC now offers an RSS feed
for those who wish to offer tLheir
opinions on emerging issues at
the FWC.
"Public participation in the
agency's decision-making
process is a high priority, Ball.
said. "Our site features a page
that lists numerous online sur-
veys and other opportunities for
people to comment on proposed
rules and rule changes. draft
management plans and other is-
sues calling for public input.
That page now includes an RSS
feed. so people can subscribe and
always be notified when at ne-.
comment opportunity arises."

FWC hired Southwick-
Associates, a private firm
specializing in fish-and-
wildlife economics, to de-
termine the impact from
an increase in fees.
"The optimal price for
each sport fishing and
hunting license issued
was scientifically deter-
mined," Wattendorf said.
"Consideration for the in-
crease included the effect
-on angling and hunting
participation, customer
satisfaction, tourism and
public support for conser-
However, the new fees
were kept to the minimum
necessary to offset the
projected deficit, rather
than at a level that would
maximize revenue. Com-
pared to the price of'
movies, golf, bowling and
other forms of recreation,
fishing and hunting fees
remain very affordable,
especially when viewed as
an unlimited, year-round
privilege, Wattendorf
FWC also carefully
considered the impact on
federal aid for sport fish-
ing and wildlife restora-
tion, which comes fo
Florida based on the certi-
fied number of hunting
and fishing license hold-
ers and size of the state.
Further research consist-

ed of consulting focus
groups and surveying in-
dividual hunters and fish-
ermen across Florida.
With all of these findings
before them, legislators
voted to increase the fees,
beginning Oct. 1. As a re-
sult, programs in danger
of losing funding, such as
freshwater hatcheries,
law enforcement patrols
and saltwater fisheries
stock assessments, will be
able to continue at, cur-
rent levels of service.
"It will allow our
habitat restoration, fish
stocking, law enforce-
ment and outreach pro-
grams to continue with-
out cuts," Wattendorf
said. "We can't guarantee
that some things won't be
trimmed in the future,
but the expectation is the
license fee increases will
prevent us from going

Driving down US 90 on Saturday mornings, if one
looks to the north near the "Madison County Airport, El-
evation 150 ft.," road sign, there will appear to be several
old school prop planes buzzing around in the distance.
Further investigation reveals that the planes are pro-
peller driven, but they're not in the distance.
Instead these planes are flying in tight configura-
tions and performing unbelievable acrobatics right
there at the field. No, we're not suddenly home to the
"Madison Aces" or the "Big Bend Air Circus" or any oth-
er fictitious flying group. We are home however, to the
Madison Radio Control Modelers. a group of model
plane enthusiasts who enjoy sharing time and air space
with each other and the community
Using mostly Almost Ready to Fly (ARF) planes pur-
chased from hobby shops for as little as $79, the planes
are radio-controlled with a range only limited by sight.
"The planes we fly are typically in about the $300
range. Fuel and support equipment isn't too expensive,"
Pat Cantey, Madison business owner and the club's di-

rector, explained. "It's easy to pick up. 10 or 12 flights
with an inexpensive trainer model and you're up and fly-
Club member Gilbert Herndon shared his time and
expertise as he took this reporter through a training
flight. To do so, two controllers were linked together so
the trainer could take over if necessary The flight went
well. And although you don't need to be a video game
junkie to be a natural at this hobby it wouldn't hurt.
"Teenagers that have mastered the controllers for so-
phisticated game systems would take to this quickly,"
Ron Gundlack stated.
Gundlack, a resident of Pinetta, and the only real-life
pilot in the group. candidly acknowledged that stunt pi-`
loting model planes is an art. "I was visiting another
model plane group in Port St. Lucie and three state
troopers were there. They used their radar gun to check
the model's speed, which came in at 121 mph. Even though
we don't fly wide open all the time, maneuvering these
planes and those speeds can be fun and challenging."
Ted Nowell of Jefferson County didn't mind showing
that speed however, while his fellow flyers performed im-

Six Tips To Better Forest Habitat F

Just as croplands can produce crops yet yield habitat for
wildlife, forestlands can be managed to produce wood prod-
ucts and at the same time benefit wildlife.
Managing a forest with wildlife in mind is like shooting at a
moving target. As the trees and other plants in a forest grow
and change, the structure, size and species of trees and other
plants changes.
That shift in habitat also means there will be a shift in
wildlife species that live in the forest at the time. For example,
the seeds and fruits of shrubs, grasses and forbs in the early
successional stage, after a harvest or other major disturbance,
are just what songbirds and small mammals want. On the oth-

er hand, woodpeckers, wood ducks, bats and other cavity
nesters want the dead snags and den trees of a mature forest.
For the greatest diversity in wildlife, you want diversity in
the size, age and structure of the forest That can be achieved
with selective harvesting of single trees, to always leave a
canopy or by clear cutting small areas of a forest (15 acres or
less) at different times, resulting in several successional stages
of even-aged stands of trees within the forest. The flush of
plant growth in clear-cut areas lasts for several years.
Techniques to improve fish and wildlife habitats include:
1) Regenerate new growth in open spaces. This may be
done by prescribed burning, using herbicides, or planting
2) Thin stands; remove weak trees.
3) Plan carefully to carry out a prescribed burn; studies
show most wildlife escape, and the new plant growth after-

pressive stall and acrobatic moves. "If you think that's
impressive, you should see some of the planes out
there," Gundlack said. "There are models with jet en-
gines so big that they can't legally be flown here," he
went on to say.
Until a few modifications can be made at the airport,
the club isn't qualified to join the Academy of Model
Aeronautics (AMA), the organizing authority-in model
planes. "We have to put in fences and parking and a few
other things not possible at this time," Cantey ex-
plained. "But the formal affiliation with the AMA isn't
required to operate," he added.
Hobby Town in Tallahassee and Hodges Hobbies in
Americus, GA are the group's local sources for planes
and equipment. There is also a link to the club's website
if you visit the Links section of the Seminole Radio
Control Club website at www.seminolerc.com.

tors and new members. Simply call Pat Cantey at 973- 0

Aarons Grand Opening

Well Received


(Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Michael Curtis, October 13, 2007
Aarons has something for all around the house.

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing. Inc.
As new stores open in Madison Coun-
ty, the final measure of success is the cus-
tomer, because as we know, "The cus-
tomer is always right."
As it turned out, by the time
Aarons held their official Grand Opening
this past Satiurda3; October 13, with bal-
loons, huge blow-ups and games for the
kids, the community had already ex-
pressed their opinion and that opinion
was a strong "Welcome to Madison."
"Aarons opened the doors here on
September 8 to have time to work the
bugs out and get everything just right be-
fore the Grand Opening," store manager
Marlin Mickels explained. This period

apparently turned up no problems, in-
stead it. demonstrated what "word-of-
mouth" advertising can accomplish
when good products are offered up.
"The people here are great and
they seem to really like what they've
found. Computers, TVs, furniture and
appliances are already moving well,"
Mickels added. "We hope everyone will
come in and take advantage of our easy
approval process. There are no credit
checks: a few references and work histo-
ry and they're approved."
Trey Whitchard joins Mickels at
the Madison Aarons. Whitchard is from
Live Oak and Mickels is from Tallahas-
see, where both received promotions to
the new store in Madison.
