The road to waste-
water in Lee has been
bumpy, with passionate
pleas coming from sup-
porters on both sides of
the issue. Council mem-
bers were also divided,
having declined to move
the project forward on
Sept. 22 when the motion
failed for lack of a sec-

began offering the vac-
cine on Oct. 5. "Receiv-
ing an influenza vaccine
is a primary preventive
measure against influen-
za infection," stated Kim
Barnhill, Administrator
of the MCHD. "In addi-
tion to getting a flu shot,

Veteran Pleads With

Commissioners To Waive Fees
Family lost trailer in fire and can't afford fees to place new trailer

By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
During the Board of
County Commissioners
meeting held on Oct. 7,
Francis Hand came be-
fore the commission to
plead with them to
waive $380 in fees he
must incur to bring a
trailer onto his property
to replace the trailer his
family recently lost to
"I've got a trailer
and I can get it moved to
the property, but I can't
afford the county fees to
set it up. I'm on a fixed
income of $985 a month,
and I live month-to-
month. I have no savings
and I just want to get my
home back," Hand pas-
sionately explained.
Hand further dis-
closed that he was a
Vietnam veteran, living
with his wife, Judy, and
granddaughter, Anna
Ramirez (12), who is in
their care. "I don't de-
serve to be homeless,"
he added.
According to the
county fee schedule,
Hand would be responsi-
ble to pay:
$150 fee "Zoning
ment Permit: Swap out
an existing dwelling
within one year."
$155 fee "Move on
Permit: Singlewide."
$55 fee "To put mo-
bile home on property:
On used only prein-
spection fee."
$20 fee "Driveway
Permit: Existing."

Francis and Judy Hand appealed to the county
commission regarding $380 in fees they would have
to pay to put a trailer on their property to replace the
one they lost in a recent fire.

These four fees,
which total $380, do not
have provisions to be
waived for hardship, al-
though it was apparent
from the comments of
commissioners and
counsel they wanted to
help. In fact, counsel
noted that future provi-
sions could be intro-
duced for such cases;
however, a structured
process would be appro-
priate to maintain con-
sistency and fairness
going forward. It could
not therefore be accom-
plished on the spot.
In the meantime,
commissioners made in-
quiries and recommen-
dations regarding local
agencies, churches and
help lines the Hand's

could contact for assis-
tance, including the lo-
cal Veterans Affairs
Office. Currently, the
family is living in a mo-
tel room they have for a
few more days until
something can be done.

Faith Baptist Youth Holding

Car Wash Fundraiser
Faith Baptist Youth are sponsoring a car wash
this Saturday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the CVS park-
ing lot.
The money raised at this car wash will be used to
fund and support Operation Christmas Child. Opera-
tion Christmas Child is a ministry of Franklin Gra-
ham that provides gifts to needy children around the
world who otherwise would never receive a Christmas
gift on Christmas day.
Not only will they receive a gift but a tract as well,
sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their native lan-
guage. So, go on out Saturday and get your car washed.

that on Tuesday, Oct. 6, at approximately 10 p.m.,

report of a home invasion rob-
bery with a firearm on Cole- "

Sheriff's Office deputies and
officers with the Madison Po-
lice Department immediately
responded to the location.
Deputy Sheriff Jarrod
Lauth was first to arrive at the Ezell Stephens
residence and met with the vic-
tims. The victims disclosed o-
that two black males forced en- nu
try into their home at gunpoint _
and demanded money The vic-
tims complied and the suspects
fled the area. The victims pro- ,, o
vided a detailed description of \

iff Lauth immediately radioed Roberto Rodrigues
the descriptions to additional
responding officers.
A witness who was monitoring the radio fre-
quency also heard the description and observed two
black males fitting the description walking at road-
side near their residence and notified the deputies.
Deputy Sheriff Sergeant Dennis Pitts and Madi-
son Police Department Officer Eric Gilbert located
the two black males walking on the roadside at the
intersection of Bunker and Sullivan Streets. Deputy

Coming Home

This Sunday, Oct. 11, will be homecoming at
Midway Church of God. The homecoming marks
the beginning of the church's 75th year of exis-
I have attended the church for about nine years
now. During those nine years, I have seen myself
grow spiritually more than ever before. I've also
seen my sister, Abbie, become more vibrant mental-
ly and physically.
Many people in the church have been there to
help my family when we've needed their prayers
and support.
Brother Retis Flowers, the pastor of the church,
and his wife, Janice, are true beacons, who are
there when you need them. When my brother, Dan-
ny, was undergoing heart surgery, they made the ef-
fort to go sit with the family during that time.
Sunday is a time of renewal in our faith. Once
again, we return home to a place we've been before.
We will get to see old friends as well as new friends.
I hope to see you there. The day begins with a
short performance by the Gaddis Family, followed
by a combined Sunday School; taught by Brother
Flowers. Morning worship will start at 11 a.m. with
some more singing and then preaching. Following
morning worship, dinner on the church grounds
will be served and then there will be an afternoon
concert by the Gaddis Family I'm sure that you will
enjoy it.

It's All About American Responsibility

I am a 51-year-old
wife, mother, and grand-
mother. I enjoy the time
I spend with my family.
Lately I have been remi-
niscing about the years
gone by Perhaps it has
to do with my age or per-
haps it has more to do
with my children and
When I think back I
remember my school
days and the lessons
taught. The values I
learned from my par-
ents, grandparents and
teachers who I looked up
to. They taught me to re-
spect my elders, which I
have done and will al-
ways do. They taught me
to respect the flag of our
great nation, again I
have and always will.
They taught me that war
isn't about killing, but
about freedom. They
taught me about our na-
tion's government struc-
ture and how it was
meant to work. They
taught me that one of
my greatest freedoms is
my ability to vote. They
taught me that there is a
difference between right
and wrong, compassion
and pity, charity and
malevolence. They
taught me about past

Presidents, good, not so
good and some that his-
tory recalls as being
great. They taught me
not to judge others, but
to judge myself. They
taught me to accept the
differences in others.
They taught me that any
one person has the abili-
ty to be great. They
taught me that it is not
the color of one's skin
that makes them who
they are, but it is values
and morals they hold.
They taught me that
nothing in life is free, in-
cluding freedom. I could
go on, but I won't bore
you to much more.
The 1960s for me
were not much more
than a young child play-
ing and learning. How-
ever I do remember a
day when my mother
cried as she watched a
horse drawn carriage
with a flag draped box
on our black and white
TV. During the 1970s I re-
member the long lines
waiting for gas that
were rationed accord-
ing to our tag numbers.
We learned that the
press had a power of
truth that could take
down a President.

know what they are tak-

Feelings Toward

The Miss Perfect

Beauty Pageant
I will preface my remarks by saying that I un-
derstand that the "Little Mr. and Misses Perfect
Pageant" is for charity That said, let me share my
feelings with you and your readers.
When I read the name of the pageant and about
the categories, the word "perfect" kept jumping out
at me. Perfect face, perfect smile, perfect eyes, etc. I
wonder how this makes all the imperfect boys and
girls out there feel? The boy with the slightly
crooked teeth, the girl with the nose a little large, the
ones who were born with disabilities. How about all
those children whose parents aren't able to buy the
"perfect" dress or the "perfect" shoes or the "perfect"
hairdo or haircut? I hope that their self esteem is
not damaged by all this fakery
Seems to me that the only perfect person that

- t's Time For Pumpkins -

Each season always
brings a change of food to
the table and October brings
pumpkins. During the
month of October, 80 per-
cent of the pumpkin supply
is harvested in the United
States. You see them every-
where this time of year, they
are in the grocery stores, at

road side stands and many organizations sell them
for a fund raising project. We carve faces on them or
display several for Fall decorations. Pumpkins are a
member of the squash family; these bold colored
vegetables can only mean that Halloween and
Thanksgiving are around the corner.
The one thing many people overlook about the
pumpkin is the food value of the pulp. That's the in-
side of the pumpkin you often throw away when you
carve a face on the front. The bright orange color is
an indication that pumpkin is loaded with beta-
carotene. An important antioxidant, beta-carotene
is converted to vitamin A in the body that has many
functions for health.
We often associate pumpkins with pies, but
there are many other uses for pumpkin. They can
be used in any recipe for winter squash such as
acorn or butternut. Try combining pumpkin with
potatoes in your favorite casserole. Add pumpkin
puree to your pancake mix or use in muffins and
sweet breads. You can even make pumpkin soup and
the seeds can be roasted and eaten for a snack.
Extension Specialists suggest when selecting a
pumpkin, look for one with a 1 to 2 inch stem. It
should feel heavy and be free of blemishes and soft
spots. Smaller pumpkins are better for eating, they
are more flavorful and don't have a stingy texture. A
lopsided pumpkin is not necessarily a bad choice, so
don't pass them up. Since pumpkin is highly perish-
able, it must be cooked the same day it is cut open.
The orange flesh has a tendency to develop a black
Pumpkin can be cooked on the stovetop, in the
oven or microwave. Each method takes a different
time, but all produce a cooked product. For use in a
variety of recipes, puree will freeze well. To make
puree, once your pumpkin is cooked, cool it enough
to handle and remove the peel using a small sharp
knife then put the peeled pumpkin in a food proces-
sor. One pound of raw, untrimmed pumpkin will
make one cup of finished pumpkin puree. To freeze,
measure cooled puree into one cup portions and
place in freezer containers, leaving 12 inch head-
space. Label, date and freeze, it will keep up to one
year. Use the puree in any recipe that calls for solid
pack canned pumpkin.
Pumpkin can be processed in canning jars, but
you must cut the flesh into 1 inch cubes. It is rec-
ommended that you not process mashed or pureed
pumpkin in a canner. Pumpkin must be processed
in a pressure canner. If you are interested in re-
ceiving safe canning or freezing instructions, call
the Extension office and we will be glad to send you

the information.

What A Beautiful World!

I've never thought I had any artistic ability -
that is, not the da Vinci or Renoir nor Whistler type,
nor even Grandma Moses, but for the past couple of
years, I've felt a desire to and a wish that I could put
on an artist's canvas my poor version of what the
greatest artist of all has put on the canvas which
contains our earth and sky
Today especially was one of those days. As I sat
and gazed up at a beautiful cerulean sky, I saw a love-
ly work of art broad, masterful strokes swept
across it in shades of palest to brightest white. Yes,
there are various shades of white.
Mixed all along on this masterpiece were stac-
cato daubs of the artist's brush and other oddly
beautiful touches added in. The finished canvas no
earthly artist can ever duplicate. We mortals can ad-
mire the Heavenly Artist's masterpieces every day
and, like snowflakes, no one is ever duplicated.
Aren't we the lucky ones?
The following is a little essay I wrote during my
first semester English class at NFJC in 1971:
Sunrise Soliloquy
Such a beautiful morning! An orchestral back-
ground of birdsong permeates the atmosphere as the
Great Artist of the Heavens places a glowing orange
orb on the very edge of a great expanse of sky-blue
canvas and begins the Masterpieces of the Day. The
green-carpeted pastures are dotted with the sunshine
of daisies and buttercups. Adjacent woods blossom
with fragrant dogwood, interlaced with green climb-
ing foliage. A veritable mass of perfumed color gently
caresses the senses. This pastoral panorama is of
ever-recurring amazement to the sensitive mind as the
capricious sprite of spring bursts forth each year
Fall has its own style of loveliness, too. Enjoy it.
Happy birthday, Vicki Langford. Love, Mama.

personal experiences
from other towns where
the same effort led to
huge cost overruns.
Again though, these
comments were deliv-
ered thoughtfully. In
fact, one resident who
acknowledged how hot
he had been along this
process, actually quoted
from the book of
Proverbs stating the im-
portance of being a good
In later discussion
with town management,
the following prominent
objections (0) and re-
sponses (R) were noted:

0: The majority of
residents opposed the
R: A survey conduct-
ed by several residents
opposing the project
showed more residents
were against the project,
although questions
arose regarding why
residents would or
would not participate,
and how supporters of
projects are typically
less vocal than oppo-
nents. Beyond that, it
was also noted that
council members are
duly elected to make
these types of decisions,
even those facing unpop-
ular replies when they
feel it is in the overall
best interest of the com-
munity. Town counsel
noted that a republic
government structure is
designed that way.

0: Lee is a poor com-
munity with many on
fixed incomes who can't
afford the additional

$30-40 per month for
R: Septic Systems
are not free systems ei-
ther and many Lee sep-
tic systems are well past
their life expectancy (18
years), which inspection
would detect. So, al-
though many residents
do not maintain their
systems properly, and
are therefore not paying
anything for their up-
keep, this is inappropri-
ate and a hazard to the
community and should
be required, regardless
of income. These costs
over time, especially
with the cost of major
repairs or replacement
to remain in code, would
total in the thousands.
Health officials stated
that as an estimated one
in 10 septic systems in
Lee is failing, although
the owner might consid-
er them functional. The
weather and water table
amplifies the situation.

0: Those with com-
mercial interests, in-
cluding the trailer park,
stand to benefit greatly
from the wastewater
R: It was noted that
the trailer park did have
prior septic issues, but
that ultimately they
have been addressed,
and that no council
member or town man-
agement has commer-
cial interests that derive
a unique benefit from
the wastewater project.

0: Pine Trace subdi-
vision deserves to be in-
cluded in the
wastewater project.

R: It was stated that
it would cost almost one
million dollars to serve
Pine Trace alone, which
equates to over $40,000
per home. Comparative-
ly, this is simply too ex-
pensive considering the
number of homes in oth-
er zones that can be
served for the same

0: This is just anoth-
er example of govern-
ment telling people what
to do and spending mon-
ey they don't have, while
putting a million-dollar
burden on the town.
R: Representatives
from the DEP noted that
the 75 percent grant Lee
is receiving is rare and
that obtaining this high
level of grant funding
anytime in the near fu-
ture would be virtually
impossible. That said,
one council member
who approved the pro-
ject firmly declared his
dislike for the DEP, and
any government man-
dated action for that
matter. In the end
though, it was deter-
mined that the 25 per-
cent loan applied to the
cost of wastewater at av-
erage usage would be
less than $40 per month,
worse case scenario,
which was good for the

0: Those earning
over a stated level,
which includes approxi-
mately 30 percent of res-
idents, would have to
pay several thousand
dollars to dispose (flush
and crush) their exist-
ing septic system.
R: According to the
governor's office, town
council has the option of
obtaining a loan that
would cover all remain-

ing residents to hook
into the wastewater sys-
tem at no charge. This
would add between $2
and $3.75 per month de-
pending on the number
of residents using the
new system, which is an
anticipated option so
that all residents on the
system shoulder a simi-
lar responsibility re-
gardless of income.

0: Communities in
Indiana, West Virginia
and Louisiana had simi-
lar wastewater efforts
break down, ultimately
costing residents two to
three times original pro-
jections. Plus, Lee is de-
pendent on the City of
Madison, who might
throw Lee to the curb in
the future.
R: It was agreed that
projects like these could
go bad, although the en-
gineer and contractor
who have performed
these types of services
for years stated the like-
lihood was negligible.
Several residents re-
called that similar feel-
ings were expressed
when the town con-
structed its water sys-
tem, which has worked
out well. Regarding
Madison, besides the
lighthearted comments
that many Madison resi-
dents and officials are
related to those in Lee, it
was also pointed out
that the state does not
permit such actions and
would intervene accord-
ingly should it arise.
Madison officials firmly
dismissed the sugges-
tion as well.

0: Residents might
lose their homes from
not paying their wa-
ter/wastewater bill.
R: State Homestead

Law protects homeown-
ers from foreclosure due
to utility liens.

Other issues arose,
and each was addressed,
although fear was still
expressed. As one oppo-

nent to the project so
passionately put it, "But
I hope I'm wrong."

driver's license has doubled, and is now set at $48. It
will also cost $25 more each year to renew the regis-
tration on a medium-sized vehicle, bringing those
costs to nearly $72.
Representative Bembry is also concerned about
calls he has received from constituents who were un-
able to renew their tags or licenses within the short
timeframe allowed by the legislation.
There were many frustrated people in line at
each local motor vehicle and tax collectors' offices.
It's truly unfortunate that the Legislature gave such
a very narrow window of time for people to prepare
for this costly new burden.
"I will continue to work in Tallahassee to remove
waste and inefficiencies from the budget. I will sup-
port prioritized spending and adequate funding for
the basic needs and services of the citizens of our
state" said Representative Bembry
Representative Bembry signed House Bill 99 on
Wednesday. Under a letter sent by Representative
Ron Saunders, D-Key West, the legislation would "re-
vert vehicle registration and title fees and driver's li-
cense fee back to what they were before the passage
of Senate Bill 1778"

Residents of Madison

rant of the Madison

water to Madison resi-

years. In 1909, after experi-

Football season's in full swing, and the 2009-10
hunting season's starting to crank up. Archery sea-
son's been going on in most of the state, and in this
issue, I want to talk about three other seasons about
to start: crossbow, muzzleloading gun and the first
phase of dove.
Crossbow season occurs between archery and
muzzleloading gun seasons in the South and Central
hunting zones, lasting five days: Oct. 12-16 and Oct.
26-30, respectively In the Northwest zone, it comes in
later, on the Monday after Thanksgiving (Nov. 30),
and lasts one week through Dec. 6.
This season's for any hunter who'd like to use a
crossbow or continue using a bow on private lands.
This is not just for disabled hunters. Crossbow sea-
son doesn't apply to most wildlife management areas
(WMAs), however.
The most common game to take during crossbow
season will be deer and wild hog. Only bucks may be
taken, and one antler must be at least 5 inches long
above the hairline. The daily bag limit on antlered
deer is two. Wild hogs on private lands may, with
landowner permission, be hunted year-round with
no bag or size limits.
It's also legal to shoot gobblers and bearded
turkeys during crossbow season. Only one may be
taken per day, and there's a two-bird fall-season lim-
it. But you can't hunt turkeys in Holmes County dur-
ing the fall and winter.
Crossbows and bows must have a minimum
draw weight of 35 pounds, and hand-held releases on
bows are permitted. For hunting deer, hog and
turkey, broadheads must have at least two sharpened
edges with a minimum width of 7/8 inch.
Legal shooting hours are a half-hour before sun-
rise to a half-hour after sunset. Except for turkeys,
hunters may take resident game over feed such as
corn on private lands.
Some things you can't do during crossbow sea-
son include hunting deer, hog or turkey with dogs,
using explosive or drug-injecting arrows, and pos-

sessing firearms.
Immediately following the close of crossbow sea-
son in the South and Central hunting zones is the be-
ginning of muzzleloading gun season. Season dates
run Oct. 17-25 and Oct. 31 Nov. 8, respectively. Muz-
zleloading season comes in later in the Northwest
zone and runs Nov. 20-22.
During muzzleloading gun season, bows and
crossbows are legal methods of taking game on pri-
vate lands, along with muzzleloaders. On WMAs,
only muzzleloaders may be used.
Legal shooting hours are the same for muzzle-
loading gun season as crossbow season. And, legal
game, including bag limits and prohibited methods
for taking game, also are the same as crossbow sea-
son. Bag limits and antler/size restrictions for game
on WMAs can differ, so check the specifics of the
area before you hunt.
For hunting deer, muzzleloaders firing single
bullets must be at least .40-caliber. Guns firing two
or more balls must be 20-gauge or larger. You may
not use muzzleloaders with self-contained cartridge
ammunition capabilities or possess modern
firearms during muzzleloading gun season.
The first phase of the mourning and white-
winged dove season begins Oct. 3 and ends Oct. 26
statewide. Shooting hours during this first phase are
noon to sunset, and there's a 15-bird daily bag limit.
The only firearm you're allowed to hunt doves
with is a shotgun, but you can't use one larger than
a 10-gauge. Shotguns must be plugged to a three-
shell capacity (magazine and chamber combined).
You may hunt doves over an agricultural field, as
long as the crop's been planted and manipulated un-
der normal agricultural practices. However, it's
against the law to scatter agricultural products over
an area for the purpose of baiting.
Some things you can't do while dove hunting are
use rifles, pistols or crossbows; shoot from a moving
vehicle; or herd or drive doves with a vehicle.
In addition to a Florida hunting license, you'll

Tony Young
need a $5 crossbow permit to hunt during crossbow
season. A $5 muzzleloading gun permit is needed to
hunt during muzzleloader season, and you'll need a
no-cost migratory bird permit if you're going to
hunt doves. If you hunt on a WMA, you must have a
management area permit that costs $26.50.
All are available at county tax collectors' offices
or license agents or by calling toll-free 888-HUNT-

ing the crossbow and muzzleloading gun seasons, or
dove hunting with friends and family, I hope I've

"Deadliest Catch" Captains Join Florida Campaign To Promote

State's Fishing Heritage And Celebrate Seafood Month

Three of the world's
most recognizable com-
mercial fishing person-
alities are helping
Florida mark National
Seafood Month in Octo-
ber, and will soon be fea-
tured in a public
awareness campaign
promoting Florida
seafood products and the
"working waterfronts"
where the state's fishing
heritage is preserved
and cultivated.
Captains Sig Hansen
and Johnathan and
Andy Hillstrand --well
known to viewers of the
Discovery Channel's
wildly popular "Dead-
liest Catch" series about
Alaskan crab fishing in
the Bering Sea -- will ap-
pear in television spots
and other media promot-
ing Florida's fishing in-
Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles

H. Bronson, whose de-
partment promotes the
state's agriculture and
seafood industries and
helps administer the
state's Working Water-
fronts Program, said he
appreciates the popular
fishing celebrities' will-
ingness to assist with
Florida's efforts.
"Whether fishing in
subfreezing tempera-
tures in the Bering Sea
or in balmy waters off
the Florida coast, Amer-
ica's commercial fisher-
men understand the
hard work that goes into
bringing in their catch,"
Bronson said. "I'm de-
lighted that Sig,
Johnathan and Andy are
lending their status as
internationally known
fishing captains to help
us raise public aware-
ness of the important
contributions that Flori-
da's fishermen make to

our state and nation."
Bronson said that
Florida's fishing indus-
try has faced numerous
challenges in recent
years. He hopes that as
the public learns more
about Florida fishermen
and the struggles they
face to supply con-
sumers with quality
products, the more they
will ask for domestically
harvested seafood when
shopping or dining out.
"In recent years,
hurricanes have dam-
aged fishing fleets,
equipment and process-
ing infrastructure,
cheap seafood imports
have flooded U.S. mar-
kets, and soaring fuel
prices have drastically
increased our fisher-
men's cost of doing busi-
ness," Bronson said.
"But, even when faced
with this 'perfect storm'
of adversity, our state's
fishermen persevere.
Consumers can help by
always asking for Flori-
da-harvested seafood
Florida's commer-
cial fishermen annually
harvest more than 83
million pounds of quali-
ty seafood and fishery
products with a dockside
value of more than $168
million. Florida leads

the U.S. in the number of
seafood processing busi-
nesses with 500. Anoth-
er 800 businesses buy
and sell seafood as dock-
side fish buyers, whole-
sale brokers, importers
or exporters. Retail and
restaurant sales of
Florida products total
$24 billion annually
The television pub-
lic service announce-
ments featuring the
three fishing captains
are expected to start air-
ing statewide in Decem-
ber. Images of Hansen,
captain of the "North-
western," and the Hill-
strand brothers,
co-captains of the "Time
Bandit," will also appear
in print and web-based
In addition to pro-
motions featuring the
three fishing celebrities,
the Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer
Services is producing a
series of documentaries
about several of Flori-
da's working water-
fronts. The
extended-length HD
videos will detail the his-
torical development of

Beginning at Madison
County High School,
Culpepper has worked
tirelessly to improve his
craft. Culpepper has fo-
cused on every minuscule
detail and hasn't given up
despite a rocky start to his
college football career
which started in 2007 at
Florida State University.
The program just wasn't
for him.
A red-shirt sopho-
more and criminal justice
major, Culpepper played
his first full college foot-
ball game against
Delaware State in the
Florida A & M season
opener, Sept 5th.
At the end of FAMU's
first series (an eight-play
drive), Culpepper got the
chance he's been waiting
for since 2007.
Culpepper recalls the
scene vividly as his hands
started to shake with ner-
vousness. "I couldn't
make them stop," he said.
"I knew if I could just get
that first snap off it will be
all good command. I got it
off and it was ugly but the
rest were perfect."
Culpepper said he
found the zone early and
never lost it until after the

In their last game on
September 26th the Flori-
da A&M Rattlers upset the
Tennessee Tigers 31-12 in a

star-studded showcase at
the Georgia Dome, in At-
lanta Georgia.
This victory at the At-
lanta Classic made this the
8th consecutive win for the
rattlers against the Tigers.
Florida A & M's football
program is regaining its
glory lost in the guidance
of former head coach Ru-
bin Carter. The Rattlers
have earned a 4-0 record,
giving them the top spot in
their conference. After
their most recent victory,
the Rattlers are 24th in the
Sports Network top 25 FCS
poll, their first appearance
since 2001. They are sec-
ond in the Sheridan
Broadcasting Network
poll behind South Caroli-
na State.
The talent level of this
team is stacked. Curtis
Pulley (QB) has completed
64 of 96 passes for 846
yards, including seven
touchdowns and one inter-
ception. The candidate for
the Walter Payton Award
(given to the best offensive
player in FCS) has 47 car-
ries for 291 yards and one
rushing touchdown. He
has 1,137 yards of total of-
fense. He led the Rattlers
with 315 passing yards and
two second-half touch-
down passes in the Atlanta
classic alone. Those
touchdowns helped the
rattlers pull away from the

Tigers (1-3) who held a
halftime lead 12-10.
Other notable players
include Leroy Vann, All-
American punt return
specialist, who has had 4
returns to score in the last
4 games. In his career he
has 10 kick returns for
touchdowns (seven punts,
three kickoffs) in his ca-
reer. He is tied with North-
ern Iowa's Kenny Shedd
for the FCS career mark in
punt-return touchdowns
with seven.
Also Trevor Scott (K)
recently made the second
longest field goal attempt
in school history, although
this being his first true
start at the collegiate level.
