Madison Votes No, But Tax Cut Still Passes State

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Florida's northern rural
counties, including Madison, as
well as Leon County, decidedly
voted "No" to the Property Tax
Amendment on January 29.
But the vastly more populace
central, southern and coastal
counties voted an overwhelm-
ing "Yes" to the legislation,
which consequently passed
with a 64 percent approval.
Madison County Property
Appraiser, Leigh Barfield con-
firmed the state results. She
and her staff have been com-

mitted to ensuring voters un-
derstood the details and effects
of the legislation. To that end,
Barfield made numerous pre-
sentations to civic organiza-
tions over the past month. "We
just wanted to make sure every-
one had a chance to ask ques-
tions and understood the tax
amendment," Barfield often
Madison County also had a
few disparities regarding Presi-
dential preferences as well. The
most popular candidates for
Madison County were Republi-
can John McCain and Democrat

Barack Obama. For the state as
a whole, Republican John Mc-
Cain still carried the lead with
36 percent of the vote but the
state's Democratic nomination
went to Hillary Clinton.
"We had a comparatively
good voter turnout at 38 per-
cent, although we may have lost
some voters to the confusion re-
garding how Democratic dele-
gate votes were being handled
at their national convention.
Our office received numerous
calls from registered Democrats
asking if their vote counted.
All in although, we're pleased

with voter participation," Su-
pervisor of Elections, Jada
Williams, explained. "I also
want to thank all the volunteers
that worked at the polling
places, and especially my great
staff," she added.
Williams' reference to the
Democratic delegate votes came
from a recent statement by the
Democratic National Commit-
tee stating their "plans to penal-
ize Florida Democrats for hold-
ing an early primary by strip-
ping the state party of all its
delegates to the national con-
vention.!' This action caused

considerable confusion as vot-
ers confused delegates with
electors, the latter being the
group that executes the vote for
President. All voters are re-
minded that the electoral C:
process has not been interrupitC
ed at all. -
By the numbers, Madison
County has 11,860 registered:;-
voters. 4,523 voted. Of thosee.
that voted, 3,438 were registeirid
as Democrats and 851 as Reptib-

Unknown Vehicle Causes Pickup To Crash

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A Madison woman
was seriously injured in
an accident with a phan-
tom vehicle on Saturday,
January 26, on Highway
According to a Flori-
da Highway Patrol re-
port, Jannie L. Hodge,
32, of Madison, was trav-
eling southbound on
State 'Road 145 and had
entered a curve in the
roadway. According to
the driver and witnesses,

the car was traveling
northbound in the south-
bound lane or had
stopped on the west
grass shoulder, pointing
to the north with the
headlights on.
The headlights of the
phantom vehicle caused
a glare, and Hodge took
evasive action to prevent
a head-on collision with
the car and steered her
1993 Ford Ranger pickup
to the left.
The Ranger traveled
onto the east grass

shoulder, rotated in a
counterclockwise direc-
tion and collided with its
right side into a wooden
telephone pole and a
small group of trees.
Hodge was transport-
ed to the hospital by
Madison County EMS.
Units from the Madi-
son Fire Department and
Madison County Sher-
iff's Office also assisted
on the scene.
FHP Trooper Berry
Crews was the investi-
gating officer.

Sirmans VFD Receives

$199,500 From FEMA

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Fed-
eral Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) awarded a f -
$199,500 Assistance to Fire-
fighters Grant (AFG) to the Sir- "
mans Volunteer Fire Depart-

dent George Blevins, who
heads the corporation, under
which the fire department op-
erates, and is also assistant to
-Chief Patrick Hodges, the mon-
ey will be used to buy a much
needed tanker truck.

other is water. "This tanker
truck will allow us to get water into fires that might be
otherwise unavailable, or at least not in sufficient
quantities," Blevins noted, who was chiefly responsi-
ble for acquiring the grant.
FEMA Administrator R. David Paulison explains,
"The Assistance to Firefighters Grants program has
been instrumental in building capacity and providing
needed resources for our nation's firefighters. From
the purchase of equipment to first responder training,
the AFG program has helped improve response capa-
bilities and saved lives and property in communities
throughout the United States."

Killingsworth stated that the

SJacob's Ladder" Living With Little People: Part 4

: "" uu I IU i .lu l. llyi

The Only Brother I Have
My brother, Danny, will be 40 years old on Friday, Feb-
ruary 1. If you ever see Danny, chances are that you will
think that he's quiet or shy, which he is, but if you ever
hear Danny sing, you'll be surprised.
I've told readers and friends before that Danny has a
great voice, which he does. Sometimes, he has trouble
singing with soundtracks (or karaoke) if he has not prac-
ticed the song, but give him a live band and the boy is fan-
tastic! He puts so much energy and panache into the song.
Like I wrote earlier, Danny is a singer. He has always
loved to sing. I remember he and my sister Debbie used to
sing a song called "I Wish We'd All Been Ready" that
would send chills down my spine. The song is about the
Rapture taking place and part of the chorus goes "The
Son has come and you've been left behind." Chills! The
two of them had learned the song from a movie called A
Thief in the Night, which we had seen at church.
Danny is also a humble, tenderhearted person. He
helps take care of the family and he rarely ever gets the
praise or the credit he deserves so much.
When Danny was little, he used to like to wander. I re-
member once when he and I were picking blackberries
that I told him to wait while I went to get a bucket and I
would return shortly When I did get back, Danny was
gone. Frantic, I searched for him and then ran and told
my parents. They were both frantic and angry with me for
not keeping a watchful eye on my brother.
The whole neighborhood went into search mode, as
they sought for Danny. The Jefferson County Sheriff's Of-
fice was called and they searched for Danny. A couple of
our neighbors found Danny about a mile down the dirt
road that he had started walking.
I was glad that my brother had been found. I didn't
even mind my parent's anger. After all, Danny was the
only brother I had.
There was another time when Danny was little that
he decided to go exploring. We were at the Watermelon
Festival in Monticello and I guess' that he decided he
wanted more excitement than hanging around with me
all day. I turned my back for just one second and he pulled
a disappearing act that would make David Copperfield
jealous with envy. We found him that day, quite a few
blocks away, at my Uncle Billy's house. He had learned by
then if he got lost to go to a place that he knew was safe. I
was glad that we found Danny. He was the only brother I
I'm sure that Danny knows that our family, as We6l as
our'church arid his friends; thinks' the world f'himi.'He's'
special to them but he's extra-special to me. He's the only
brother I have.

Karic and
have mastered all their motor skills, from walking,
running, jumping, climbing, and riding bikes and
such. Oh yeah, you really ought to see them dancing
and shaking to music. Even Kelsea will rock and
sway to music, and she has just started to explore her
own little ways of getting around and tries to keep up
with the older ones. She is crawling and rolling over
to a sitting position by herself, and is just starting to
try to pull herself up to stand leaning on someone or
something. Sometimes the others get down on the
floor and crawl with her, and interact in her play-
My little people still keep grandma busy I usually
get visits from each of them every day. It is a bless-
ing that they are all living close enough so that we
can be a big part of their little lives. Yet, I still get a
lot of grief from their parents for giving them candy
and cookies every time I see them. But that's what
grandmas are for - right?
They are still growing and learning new things
every day Their little imaginations are always work-
ing overtime. They are becoming easier to under-
stand. Their manners are improving. The three older
ones are reciting their numbers, the alphabet, shapes
and colors. They have even mastered a few games.
They can sing songs and are cute little dancers. They
have learned how to fight among themselves; they
know how to hurt each others' feelings. They also
know how to apologize when scolded by one of us for

being mean. They have
even mastered tattling on
each other. They come
running to tell us if one
of them fell or is hurt, or
doing something they
know is bad or wrong.
They have been learn-

back to when
our boys, were
babies, I don't
recall noticing
all the little im-
portant things that they did. Of course I remember
the excitement of firsts and all the amazing feats
throughout their growing up. But seeing it all now
from a grandmother's perspective seems to be much
more enjoyable. It makes me so proud of my grand-
children and my own children. Life comes at you fast,
don't blink and miss a minute of it.
You know, when I first found out I was going to be
such a young (Ha,Ha) grandma, I was both scared and
excited, and didn't think I was ready. But looking
back over the last few years, I can now say that I'm
thrilled, blessed, and thankful to have four such
amazing grandchildren to keep me young and living
everyday that I have with them to the fullest.
They are all growing so fast that I'm afraid they
won't be little people much longer. But, this grandma
promises to enjoy every minute of their little lives.
They all make mine more exciting, enjoyable, and
worth living.
I hope everyone enjoyed reading this four part se-
ries about my grandbabies and our lives. If you are a
parent or grandparent or even a great-grandparent
you understand where I'm coming from, and where
I'm headed. If you haven't slowed down enough to re-
alize what you're missing, then maybe you should
start now. The family always includes "Little People,"
so please take the time to notice that they are there.
Grandma and Grandpa (Poppy) love you very
much, Trinity, Karic, Donovan, and Kelsea.

Life is funny, serious, odd
Often happy, sometimes sad
Life is peaceful, hectic, ho hum,
Ecstatic, romantic or mad.
Still, in spite of ups and downs.
Stumbles and snags, pitfalls and potholes
And many zigs and zags,
Life is what you make it

Good morning, everyone! Following quite a lot of
much needed rain the skies wept softly for a long time
- this Sunday morning dawned chilly but bright. Old Sol
was certainty a welcome sight. Ben was really happy
and very frisky even though he has, a nice doghouse
(with electricity even) he refuses to sleep anywhere ex-
cept by our bedroom door, which has only a small over-
hang. So he gets wet. He does possess a beautiful black
fur coat, however.
Thank you, Emerald you did it again. We really en-
joyed your 'Mayberry' column. Following years of 'big
city' living (in Jacksonville), on retiring in '84, we 'came
home' to Madison County and have never regretted do-
ing so. We feel there is no better place to live anywhere
even though Madison is placed on the list of being one of
Florida's poorest counties.
We don't understand why, since the county is home
to eight banks! They are listed in the 2008 telephone
book. If only a few people in the county have money, and
the rest are low income, it would be impossible for those
banks to exist. Oh well, we're glad they're here.
We received a call from Bubba Greene recently (after
writing about the twenties and the wild broncos) and we
had a long and interesting conversation. But, Bubba
needs to find someone who knows, more about the
pipeline that it was constructed through Madison Coun-
ty- we believe that was in the forties, but we're not sure.
We had moved to Jacksonville. If anyone reading this re-
members and knows enough about it, please give Bubba
a call.
We also had a long and interesting conversation
with Joe Akerman. We had called him about the Madi-,
son Historical Society but talked quite some time about
the college when we were both there, he as a professor.
Our status was student two of our professors were Mar-
cus Cherry and Jim Catron. Marcus was in our gradua-
tion class at Madison High in '36!
Speaking earlier of Madison's statusas a poor coun-
ty, the situation is evidently changing and all over Flori-
da for, if we are to believe what we're hearing on thf@
news, more people are leaving Florida than are moving
in. It is costing too much to live here. Taxes are too high.
One recent example is the Thomas Davis family of
Lee, long time residents who had built a beautiful home
here not long ago. Debbie tells us they're putting their
house on the market and have already placed a down
payment on one in Tennessee where taxes are low and
it's much cheaper to live. We're going to miss them and
their beautiful Christmas displays.
As we've said before, and as one of the themes of
those seeking the presidency, big spending must stop
from Washington on down for a recession is on the hori-

Lt. Colonel Stalnaker Madison County...

Kesumes Puties As Principal

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The community was
proud and pleased to wel-
come back a favorite son
this month. Lt. Colonel
Sam Stalnaker and all his
troops returned safely
from their tour of duty in
Afghanistan. He will now
resume his position as
Principal of Madison
County Central School.
Stalnaker, who is with
the 160th Military Police
Battalion headquartered
in Tallahassee, was sta-
tioned at Bagram Air
Base, a militarized air-
port and housing complex
located next to the ancient
city of Bagram,
Afghanistan. The base is
currently occupied and

Stalnaker has been re-

making it the best
fundraiser since we start-
ed five years ago," Kathy
Reams, Kelsi's mother,
The Reams family ex-
tends a big thanks to all of

and donations. They
would also like to thank
Buddy Witmer for the use

Madison County Chamber Of Commerce

Moves Forward With First Mixer

By Ted Ensminger
Greene Publishing, Inc.
In what could prove
to be the first of many,
the Madison County
Chamber of Commerce
kicked off 2008 with its
first ever Chamber Mix-
Hosted by the Madison
County Community
Bank, the mixer was at-

tended by approximately
25 people representing all
types of businesses
throughout the county
The guests enjoyed a
selection of light Hors
d'Oeuvres and beverages
provided by the host,
Madison County Commu-
nity Bank.
Edward Meggs, bank
president, welcomed the

guests with open arms,
and invited everyone to
enjoy a tour of the bank's
new facilities.
"It's all about network-
ing, networking, and
more networking," said
Ray Griffin, Chairperson
of the Board for the
Chamber. "Most people
like to do business with
people they know, and at

our mixers, business own-
ers, managers and per-
sonnel have the opportu-
nity to meet new friends,
as well as reacquainting
themselves with old
prospects or clientss"
With the ever-changing
complexion of business
in Madison County, the
concept of a quarterly
business mixer is sure to

catch on. Chambers lo-
cated in neighboring
counties who have been
organizing mixers for sev-
eral years have reported
that the events have be-
come an important part
of the overall Chamber
activity schedule.
Plans are underway to
schedule mixers quarter-
ly during 2008. Business-

es that have an interest in
hosting an event, or in at-
tending the mixers, can
contact the Madison
County Chamber of Com-
merce office at 850-973-

winners. Many of these
participants began the
process in fourth grade, al-
though applications may
be submitted as late as
To be awarded either
the two or four year college
scholarships, which $2500
or $5000 come from dona-
tions respectively, the stu-
dent applicant's family
must qualify according to
income, but of course on-
going requirements re-
garding grades and behav-
ior must be met as well. A
physical contract is exe-
cuted stating those points.
"B. J. Curtis keeps a
close eye on student
progress and we will inter-
vene if things start slip-
ping. But other than a few
rare exceptions, TSIC stu-
dents are becoming role
models just like the men-
tors that are assigned to
them. For instance, Lions
Club member Jim Sale had
great success as a mentor
to recent MCHS graduate
Gregory Thompson.
There are so many
good kids like Gregory and
we need mentors to make
the keep the process work-
ing at its best," Willis ex-
Mentors meet with
their scholars periodically
in an organized process at
the student's respective
school. These mentors
help teachers and stake-
holders support and coun-
sel, while donors provide
the money for the scholar-
ships, locally performed
through the Madison
Foundation for Excellence
in Education.
Based on numerous ex-
amples discussed during
the meeting, the reward
far outweighs the few
hours that are invested. In
fact, following the meeting,
Lions President Lee Fer-
Don completed his paper-
work to become a mentor,
adding to the already long
list of local heroes making
TSIC such a success.

-~~~ -, Hapei ngisIUAtiI Mad*! ~UiLson FI*irst Bapist Chiurchi

Naomi And The Sego Will Hold

Concert At Bible Deliverance Church

Naomi and The Segos will be in con-
cert at Bible Deliverance Church in Madi-
son on Friday, February 1, 2008 at 7 p.m.
Admission is free, however a love offering
will be received during the concert. Bible
Deliverance Church is located on South
Range Ave. in Madison, across from the
cotton gin.
What began in the early 1950's is still
going strong today! Naomi and The Segos
have been singing over 50 years and has
the richest history in southern gospel mu-
sic. The Sego Brothers and Naomi, which
began in the early 1950's was the first
group in gospel music to sell over one mil-
lion copies of the song "Sorry, I Never
Knew You." Down through the years, Nao-
mi has recorded many signature songs
such as "This Is Just What Heaven Means
To Me," "Satisfied With Me," "Silver And
Gold," "Until Then," "Hallelujah Square,"
and countless others.

Naomi is considered to be one of the
first five ladies of gospel music. In the ear-
ly years of gospel music, it was not com-
mon to have a female vocalist in a gospel
quartet. It all started with a sick member
in the line-up of the Sego Brothers. James,
who was Naomi's husband, called on Nao-
mi to fill the vacancy in the line-up for the
television broadcast. As one would say,
"the rest is history" The quartet changed
their name to the Sego Brothers and Nao-
mi. After the passing of her husband, the
group changed their name to Naomi and
The Segos.
Still today, Naomi and The Segos travel
200 plus dates per year proclaiming the
gospel across the country. Naomi recently
celebrated another milestone with the
recording of her 75th project.

What a day of rejoicing on Sunday!
Several mentioned what a wonderful
Sunday school lesson! That is not the be-
ginning for some because orchestra
meets at 9 a.m.- their playing is such a
Beautiful flowers!
Huge crowd, so much we gave of bul-
letins. Thanks to Marcus Holbrook for
leading singing at first. Thanks for salva-
tion and baptism of Melissa Edwards by
Geoff Hill, and Conner Ginn by Preacher
Morris Rebecca Reese Rutherford (I call
her Miss Triple R) baptized by Preacher
Heard and Preacher Morris. We will pray
earnestly for each of them; all of them.
A touching sight to see great-grand-
mother Annie Ben Ragans holding one of
the tiny little twins and grandmother
Terry Sherrard holding the other and
aunts, uncles, cousins looking, loving
and enjoying them.
Blessings upon Elias and Ansley as
they were married Saturday night.
Blessings upon the specials sung. So
The Preacher's message was stirring
and touching as he preaches on "How To
Make Jesus Great In 2008" in our country
by reading the word, praying and sharing
our faith wherever we are. A great re-
sponse by many

From Integrity Note
May our homes be filled with dancing
(we question that),
May our streets be filled with joy,
May injustice bow to Jesus,
As the people turn and pray
From the mountain to the valley
Hear our praises rise to you
From the heavens to the nations
Hear the singing fill the air
May our light shine in the darkness
As we walk before the cross
May your glory fill the whole earth
As the waters over sea
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, amen!

Faith, Family and friends, a sign at
WC. and Frances Copeland's- so true!
Earnest prayers for their Brett, now
home, for WC.; for our Jess who's covering
a bad tooth; for Marjell, not good; Joy
Gensel, now in Lake Park; Sue Raines,
still in Madison Hospital; Barbara Whit-
tle, still in Shands; for all others.
Comfort all sad ones, Glenda and Lee
Gordon and family in the death of their
mother, Wilma Power of South Carolina;
family of James Seals; W.C. Pulliam of
Atlanta, Ga.; and other sad ones.
Blessings upon the Hears as they are
leaving us.
May God bless us and help us in every
situation. Amen!
I had called Preacher Dave Medeiros
in Waycross Monday night about Marjell-
not listed. Then I called their son, Sam, in
Jessup- not listed, but a very nice opera-
tor gave me his numbers in Nashunta.
Sam's wife Susan answered and told me
that he had died Nov. 28 in a nursing
home there and that their family had a
celebration of life service. His wife, Mil-
dred, is now in that nursing home. He
was our Preacher at Pine Grove years ago
and touched all our lives preaching, play-
ing the accordian and singing a favorite,
"One Day At A Time." A memorable mes-
sage about the "Tear Bottle." Jesse was
saved under him. We can never forget
them and will always thank God for

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

The Florida Climate

For example, at the end
of October 2007, a heavy


rain hit parts of the West-
ern Panhandle. CoCoRaHS
observers in the area were
able to submit their rain-
fall reports some of
which were more than 12
inches of rain in a 24-hour
"The rainfall reports
were extremely helpful in
verifying radar rainfall es-

sacola area during the
event," said Jack Cullen, a
forecaster with the Mobile
National Weather Service
office and a CoCoRaHS co-
ordinator for the area.
