Making This Right

For information visit:

"My family's been fishing for eight generations. It's just a way of life.
That's why we've got to get this cleaned up.
Pete Floyd
Commercial Fisherman,
Pascagoula, Mississippi

When the spill hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said
they would try to make this right. But how was an energy company
going to help a fisherman?

Putting People to Work
The first thing they did was rent my boat and hire me to help with
the cleanup. They made up my losses so I could pay my bills. And
they worked with all kinds of people here from fishermen and
shrimpers to restaurant owners. It helped us keep our businesses
open. And it helped us make ends meet so we could support
our families.

Staying for the Long Haul
When they capped the well in July and finally killed it, we were all
relieved. But would BP stick around? Well, they did. The beaches
are clean and we're back on the water fishing so things are getting
a whole lot better. They are still here and have said they will keep
working for as long as it takes.

Getting Back to Normal
BP asked me to share my story with you to keep you informed. If
you still need help, please call 1-866-448-5816 or go to If
you're wondering what you can do, well - the next time you're
shopping, buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none finer.

mm Bell

By Carol Gibson
Instructional Coach
Madison County High School

Parents ARE Teachers
My teaching career began in 1971 in Copen-
hagan, New York. After leaving New York State, I
taught at the Columbia County Kindergarten Center
in Lake City My teaching career in Madison County
began in 1986. Presently, I am fortunate to be at Madi-
son County High School as the reading coach, work-
ing with a group of dedicated people, who have
student success on their minds at all times.
When Kristin Finney contacted me about writ-
ing this article, I knew immediately what I wanted
to address-the most important ingredient in a
child's life-the parents.
Good parenting involves more than an educa-
tion, food and shelter. It involves teaching good
habits and values, teaching them right from wrong
and showing them how to make good decisions. It is
important to be successful in school, but as Teddy
Roosevelt said, "To educate a person in the mind,
but not the morals, is to educate a menace to soci-
Being an educator for many years, I am dedicat-
ed to seeing students succeed in school, but I also
know that equally important are the values that we
need to be instilling in our children. Parents - these
values come from the home, and must be taught, en-
forced, preached and modeled. Contrary to popular

belief, the "Village" cannot do it without dedicated
parents at home. "Don't worry that your children
never listen to you; worry that they are always
watching you." -Robert Fulghum.
Growing up in a small town (smaller than Madi-
son) in western New York, my first teachers were
Bill and Betty Zurbrick, my parents. Education was
top priority in the home. Time was set aside each
night for study, no TV was on during that allotted
time. Books and supplies were made available for us.
We knew (brother and sister) that school was
important and the teachers were to be respected. To
become a teacher was about as high as you could go
in my parent's eyes, and to their delight they pro-
duced two teachers. Brother Bill graduated from col-
lege, went into the US Navy and then on to a
successful career with Delta Airlines. For mom and
dad, it was mission accomplished. This was done
due to much sacrifice on their part. They not only
provided us with the opportunity for an education,
but also prepared us for the world in which we live.
Thank-you, mom and dad!
On July 31, 1985, my husband, Dale and I were
given the awesome responsibility of parenting our
son, Bill. You might say the cycle continues. Our ex-
pectations were similar to the way we were raised.
Education was given top priority; teachers were
held in high esteem; respect was expected; good de-
cision-making emphasized, along with choosing
right from wrong. Our mission was accomplished
on December 19, 2009, when Bill graduated from the
University of Florida and thankfully now gainfully
employed by Madison County Health Department.
Parents need to be attentive and dedicated to
providing their children with what they need to be
successful in school and life. It means being atten-
tive, involved, concerned parents who are aware of
what their child is doing in and out of school, work-
ing with teachers to support their child as he or she
makes the "learning journey" through childhood in
anticipation of welcoming a well-prepared addition
to the world of adulthood.

Oitopoints & Opinions

Friday, December 3, 2010

I remem-
ber, as a
growing up
in Monticel-
lo, that occa-
some of our
would move
from Lee to live
in Monticello. I
remember that
my father's
brother, Carl-

K 12


ton, lived there once; his sister, Nina,
lived there once; and my mother's
brother, Billy, lived there once. They all
were young and married like my par-
ents were and they had children.
I don't remember much about my
Uncle Carlton's daughter, Vanessa, be-
cause she was just a baby when she
was there. I do remember my Uncle
Billy's stepchildren and children; and I
do remember Aunt Nina's three chil-
dren, Cliff and Laura. I am not sure if
her daughter, Angel, was born yet.
I remember Uncle Billy's stepson,
Robbie, was cutting up one time. My
mother used to baby-sit him and his
siblings Amy, Brandi and Ricky He
was about three or four at the time and
I was probably 13 or 14. I was getting
aggravated but then I figured out how
to make him behave. I put him on top
of the refrigerator and walked off. Boy,
Robbie pitched a fit. My mama ran into
the kitchen and asked him how he got
there. Of course, he snitched on me
and then I was in trouble.
I also remember the time when my
mama got really confused when my
cousin, Laura, was at the house play-
ing with Abbie. Laura and Abbie were

only two or
three at the
time and Lau-
ra couldn't
talk very
plain. When
she said "wa-
ter," it sound-
ed like
"'butter" and
she kept ask-
ing my mama
for water, so
Mama kept
giving her

peanut butter. All of a sudden, she tore
out of the house and ran home. She
told Aunt Nina that she kept asking for
water and Mama kept giving her but-
Life can get confusing sometimes.
No matter how hard we are listening,
we can still get it wrong. If Mama had
understood that Laura was asking for
water, she never would have given her
the peanut butter. Mama didn't under-
stand, so poor Laura was having to eat
Jif or Skippy with a dry mouth. Lau-
ra's mother understood her because
Laura was her daughter.
People ask me all the time how we
communicate with Abbie (who hardly
ever talks) and I have to explain that
we just do. Because my father, my
brother, my sister, some of my aunts
and some of my cousins know and un-
derstand Abbie, we are able to commu-
nicate with her.
When we have a relationship with
Jesus Christ, we are able to communi-
cate with Him. He hears our prayers
and answers them, according to His
will. We need to listen to Him through
reading His Word and getting closer to

Eat Healthy

During The Holid

Jacob Bembry

Food is a natural ac-
companiment to the fes-
tivities of the holiday
season, but the tempta-
tion of all the sweets and
rich foods are some-
times too much for a per-
son to resist. Extension
Nutrition Specialists
share these steps to fol-
lowing a healthier holi-
day. Keep three habits in
mind, reduce, substitute
and be selective.
1. Reduce - Reduce
the portion size and/or
reduce the amount of fat
in some recipes to pro-
duce healthier alterna-
tives. Example: the fat
used in gravies, sauces,
puddings and some
cookies can be reduced
by 1/3 without a notice-
able or unacceptable
change if flavor.
2. Substitute - lower
fat ingredients or choose
a different menu. For
example, you can make
your own holiday fla-

eating tips:
* Don't approach
holiday parties or buf-
fets after fasting all day.
A light snack eaten
ahead of time will keep
you from gorging when
you arrive at a party.
* Don't eat out with-
out planning; consider
the type of restaurant
and the alternatives it
offers. Also, when din-
ing out, don't order
items with sauces,
gravies and salad dress-
ings, and ask for side or-
ders so you can control
the amount you con-
sume. Choose broiled or
grilled meats, not bread-
ed or deep fried.
* If you want to try
everything at a buffet,
take a fourth or a third
of the average serving
size. You will end up
with a full plate and may
not be overstuffed when
you finish.
* Continue to exer-
cise and be physically

you've eaten excessively,
take a nice long walk to

Happenings At Madison First Baptist Church

By Nell Dobbs
'A babe was born and changed the world." - A
church sign in Mobile
"Rejoice, give thanks and sing!" Amen! From
Oad's Woodside Church in Flint, Mich., by their
minister, Dr. Deborah Kohler, whose last Sunday
was the 21st. The church is sad about her leaving af-
ter 13 years. The church is sad also about Marge Ver-
non's death the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, a
very dear friend to everyone, especially to Oad and
me. She was in their Bell Choir, retired teacher, on
dialysis 34 years - almost a record. Thanks for your
many prayers for her as I've requested.
We pray comfort also for all others who've lost
loved ones - the family of B.E Killingsworth; the
family of Leon Strickland; for Andy Randall and
family in the unexpected death of his mother while
fishing; for Bill Raines' family and their "thank
you" for the meal and all other expressions of love
and care and the many prayers by family and
How great to visit family and friends in Mobile
and go to Bobby's, Rob's, and Rhett's Sunday School
at Bayou Sara

then to Saraland Baptist where Sara Dene plays pi-
ano. Preacher Dan Campbell is their minister and
his message was from Jeremiah 32:17 "...and there is
nothing too hard for thee" and in verse 27: "Is there
anything too hard for me?" The sermon was entitled
"Uncontrollable Rivers." Jesus using the little boy's
lunch - two fish and five loaves - feeding 5,000 men
plus women and children with 12 baskets remain-
ing. Then a story about hard times for a family and
their seven-year-old by praying every day for a new
shirt - size 7. One day, they got a call from a store at
the end of the summer clearance. His dad went,
came home brought out a shirt - size 7 - then anoth-
er and another until he had 12 new shirts, all size 7.
One of the songs as "Jesus, We Want to Thank
You." "Jesus, we just want to thank You, to praise
You, to serve You, and we know You are coming for
us." It reminded me of the song we sang recently,
"How Can I Thank You?"
Though I wasn't at our church Sunday, beautiful
flowers were placed by WC. and Frances Copeland
and family in gratitude and thanks to all who have
given so graciously to the 1898 Sanctuary Fund over
the years.
Geoff Hill led music as Jim and Beth had gone
to visit their son and family Thankful Danielle
Fries covered her surgery and was able to sing.
Worship Choir sang, "You Are" and
Preacher Reams gave another wonderful
Lil Eli Monroe's shower Sunday
night was special and his grandpar-
ents, Cindy and Vernon, were able toI
go and stay for Family Night Fellow-
Reports are that the first meet-
ing of the Leaders Bible Study
Group, "The Lies Women
Believe and the
Truth That Will

Set Them Free," being taught by Amy Kendrick
was well-attended and a blessing. The second les-
son will be Dec. 5 at 6 p.m.
On Dec. 7, at 6 p.m., Big Bend Hospice will pre-
sent the Annual Service of Remembrance in the
1898 Sanctuary with refreshments and a social to
follow in the Fellowship Hall.
Our Christmas musical will be presented on
Dec. 12 at 6 p.m. Afterwards, there will be a social
in the fellowship hall.
On Dec. 19, in the morning worship, the Chil-
dren I Sunday School class will present their an-
nual Christmas Pageant. In evening service, the
youth will present their Christmas program. The
Business Meeting will be afterwards.
Remember, we all stand in the need of prayer
for many reasons - death - illness - our retired
Army nephew Ron in Arizona waiting serious can-
cer surgery on the 13th of December and all mili-
tary injured in any degree - the aged - the lonely -
the orphans - the widows - the starving - handi-
capped - the believers - non-believers - the young
people of First Methodist going on mission trips -
and on and on and one the list goes. Jesus loves us
all and we give Him thanks!! Amen!

In Wreck
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A two-vehicle accident on Monday, Nov. 29,
ended with two people injured and taken to the
local hospital.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol re-
port, Matthew 0. Miller, 19, of Orlando was dri-
ving westbound in a 2000 Dodge coupe and Joy
D. Kentish of Brandon was driving westbound
in a 2003 Honda SUV. Both drivers were in the
left lane.
Miller approached the rear of Kentish's
Honda and failed to observe that Kentish was
traveling at a slower rate of speed than he was.
The front of Miller's Dodge collided with
the rear of Kentish's Honda.
Kentish veered to the right and traveled
onto the right shoulder, entering a wooded area
and colliding with several trees.
Kentish's Honda overturned onto its left
side and came to a final rest.
Miller's Dodge came to a final rest on the
right shoulder.
Units from the Madison County Sheriff's Of-
fice, Madison County EMS and Greenville Vol-
unteer Fire Department all assisted at the
Kentish and her passenger, Julia Clemons,

According to a Florida

There's finally a chill
and a certain festiveness
in the air as most of us try
to take time off from work
to enjoy spending quality
time with family and
friends and reflect on the
passing year. Children
will be out of school on
winter break soon, and
while the holiday season
is upon us, so are several
traditional hunting op-
The second phase of waterfowl and coot season
comes in statewide Dec. 11 and runs through Jan. 30.
In addition to the usual hunting license and permit
requirements, duck hunters also must have a Flori-
da waterfowl permit ($5) and a federal duck stamp
The daily bag limit on ducks is six, but you need
to know your ducks before you pull the trigger, be-
cause there are different daily limits for each
species. For instance, within the six-bird limit there
may be only one black duck, one mottled duck, one
fulvous whistling-duck and one canvasback.
Only two of your six-bird limit may be pintails,
redheads or scaup, and three may be wood ducks.
And you may have no more than four scoters and
four mallards (of which only two may be female) in
your bag. All other species of ducks can be taken up
to the six-bird limit, except harlequin ducks.
The daily limit on coots is 15, and there's a five-
bird limit on mergansers, only two of which may be
When hunting waterfowl, hunters may use only
non-toxic shotgun shells. In fact, it's illegal for
hunters even to possess lead shot when waterfowl
hunting. Only iron (steel), bismuth-tin and various
tungsten-alloys are permissible.
For something different, try woodcock hunting.
Woodcock season runs Dec. 18 - Jan. 16. Woodcocks
are excellent game birds because they hold well for
pointing bird dogs and provide a challenging shot
when flushed. The daily bag limit is three.
The third phase of
mourning and white-
winged dove season opens Pet S
Dec. 11 and runs through
Jan. 9. The daily bag lim-
it is 15 birds.

You may hunt migra-
tory game birds over an
agricultural field, as long
as the crop's been planted
by regular agricultural
methods. However, don't
even think about "sweet-
ening" the field by scatter-
ing agricultural products

over it - or anywhere near
it - or you could wind up in serious trouble. It does-
n't matter if you aren't the one who scattered the
bait. If you knew or should've known that such bait
was present, you're accountable under federal law.
Some other things you can't do while hunting
migratory game birds include using rifles, pistols,
crossbows, traps, snares, nets, sinkboxes, swivel
guns, punt guns, battery guns, machine guns, fish
hooks, poisons, drugs, explosive substances, live de-
coys and recorded bird calls, sounds or electrically
amplified bird-call imitations. It is also against the
law to shoot from a moving automobile or boat and
herd or drive birds with vehicles or vessels.
Bobcat and otter hunting season is Dec. 1 -
March 1, and there's no daily bag or season limit on
either species.
Like foxes, bobcats may be chased year-round
with dogs, but possessing firearms during the closed
season, between March 2 and Nov. 30, is prohibited.
On a few wildlife management areas, bobcats and ot-
ters may not be taken, so please consult the specific
area brochure before you hunt.
Whether upland bird hunting with friends and
family, shooting ducks on the pond with your fa-
vorite lab or taking that big bobcat as he slips up be-
hind an unsuspecting fawn, December has the
hunting opportunities you're looking for.
Here's wishing you happy holidays and a suc-
cessful hunting season. If you can, remember to in-
troduce someone new to our great sport. As always,
have fun, hunt safely and ethically, and we'll see you
in the woods!
