Our 149th Year, Number Since 1865, Telling It Like It Is And Defending The Peasant's Right To Know Index1 Section, 10 Pages Local WeatherViewpoints 2 Around Madison 4-5 Sports 6School 7 Church/History 8 Classieds/Legals 9Friday, January 17, 2014 Madison, Florida Page 7 Page 8 Page 6 Page 4Georgetown Road Section May Get Speed BumpsBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Residents in the neighborhood around Georgetown Road, in the southwest section of town, have gotten up a petition requesting speed bumps in the section of the road (about 2/10 mile) that lies inside the city limits. The rest of the road, about half a mile of it, lies in the county, and already has a few speed bumps, but the residents say that the posted speed limit of 25 mph in the city segment is rarely obeyed, and that in spite of stepped-up police patrols in the areas, the problem persists. Craig Anderson, a resident of Georgetown, appeared before the City Commission with Madison Police Capt. Willie McGhee to present the petition and make the case for speed bumps in that area. The road segment in question runs through what is like a main street type of neighborhood, with a barbershop, parks and churches generating heavy foot trafc. However, there are no sidewalks, so pedestrian safety is a concern. According to statements from Anderson and McGhee, the speeding problem appears to be primarily young people doing burnouts (squealing tires) on the road for fun. Anderson praised the police departments efforts, saying that, police enforcement has been there, but they can only do so much...they patrol, but the kids monitor the police too, so they know when theyre not there. Because the City of Madison doesnt have a set policy on this, City Manager Tim Bennett recommended looking at the countys policy on the placement of speed bumps and added that he would like to have a rough draft policy in place for future cases of putting speed bumps in the city limits. In looking at it from a safety standpoint, McGhee felt that safety came rst and the speed bumps were needed as soon as possible. I patrol that area a lot, he said. My professional recommendation is to put them in place. The City Commission agreed to take up the issue again at the February meeting. Meanwhile, the Commission will look at the countys speed bump policy and see how it could be adapted for the city. Greene Publishing, Inc.

Willie McGhee points out the road and neighborhood in question and explains the issue for the City Commission. Both McGhee and Anderson favored placing speed bumps along the road. The Commission agreed to study and adapt the countys speed bump policy and look at the Georgetown Road issue again at its February meeting.

Anyone wishing to run for election in the City of Madison or the Town of Greenville needs to know that the books will be closed on Feb. 10. Anyone who needs to register to vote in those elections or would like to make a party change must complete a voter registration form and submit it to the Supervisor of Elections ofce on or before Feb. 10. After that, only updates, such as a voters name (such as in the case of a married name), address and signature will be permitted. Early voting for the City of Madison will be held from March 1March 8, from 8:30 a.m.4:30 p.m. Early voting will be held at the Supervisor of Elections Ofce, located at 239 SW Pinckney Street (south of the Court-See Elections On Page 3 City Donates Right Of Way To CountyBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.When nurse practitioners Miki Richardson and Gina Sapp needed a larger facility for their Family First Wellness Clinic, they decided the Old Senior Center behind the Old Jail, on the corner of SW Rutledge Street and SW Orange Avenue, was just what the doctor ordered room enough to house the growing practice, accommodate the special clinics visiting every week and provide sufficient and safe parking, especially for their elderly patients. The county, which owns the Old Senior Center, approved the decision to sell the facility at the County Commission meeting last month.However, part of the Lshaped building extends onto a city right-of-way along Orange Avenue, meaning that the buyers will be unable to obtain financing for the building until that issue is resolved. Ergo, at the City Commission meeting a few weeks later, the county requested that the city donate that strip of its right-of-way to the county, an area of 4,913 square feet, enabling the county to go ahead with the sale. The strip runs along SW Orange Avenue from SW Pinckney Street to SW Rutledge, turns the corner and goes along SW Rutledge to the edge of the Old Senior Center property. After the donation, the new property line would then be consistent from the Old Senior Citizen property up through the Old Jail property. Ive met with (County Coordinator) Allen Cherry to make sure we were all on the same sheet of music, said City Manager Tim Bennett. Because the new business will be a healthcare facility and is considered economic development for the community, Bennetts recommendation was to approve the donation. Commissioner Jim Stanley noted that the county had always been willing to help the city out in times past, and he saw no reason not to approve the deal. The city will need to prepare and sign a quit-claim deed and have a survey done to provide a legal description of the property. The commissioners approved the donation.Greene Publishing Inc, Photo by Jacob Bembry, December 21, 2014One step closer: With the donation of the citys right-of-way to the county, the county will be able to proceed with the sale of the Old Senior Citizens Center to the Family First Wellness Clinic.

Jacobs Ladder Improving personal finances is one of the top resolutions most people identify for the New Year. Setting a goal to get into better financial shape will provide long term stability for your family. The Federal Consumer Information Center has some great ideas to get you started on the right track. First step, you need to determine where you are right now. Add up your total take-home pay per month, this is the amount of money you have to pay monthly bills. Find a simple method to record all of your expenses. At the end of a month, add up your total expenses and subtract them from your total income. Is it a plus or minus? If you are running short, you may need to trim flexible expenses. Those are the bills that change each month; food, utilities, and clothing are all examples of flexible expenses. After you crunch the numbers, come up with a spending plan and stick to it. If you arent sure how to develop a plan, we have fact sheets at the Extension office that can help. You can also call and make an appointment for an individual session to learn the basic steps. If you dont have enough money to make ends meet, keep track of your spending for three or four weeks. Fold up a sheet of paper and keep it in your wallet, then each time you take out your wallet to make a purchase, write the date, what you purchased and amount you spent. By doing this exercise you may be shocked at the amount of money you spend without thinking about it. Mindless spending can cause a lot of cash to slip through your hands. Once you discover where you are spending money, you can make adjustments. Another step in controlling your finances is to get yourself organized with a filing system. If you dont have a system for keeping records, you can waste a lot of time searching for important papers. How you organize and maintain your records are a personal choice, the important thing is to know where the information is located. Review your active records annually and discard or update the information. If you maintain records on a computer, have a back-up plan in case electronic files are erased or hard copies are destroyed or lost. Consider a safety deposit box for legal papers, contracts, deeds and wills. Another task to do in January is to go through old files and get rid of records that are no longer useful. Financial specialists suggest tossing old salary statements, expired warranties and any other out of date records that are taking up space. Keep unpaid bills, credit card statements, current bank statements, health benefit information and insurance policies. Shred all personal business before you toss it. Once you organize your records, take the next step and calculate your net worth. This is a matter of adding up all of your assets and subtracting all of your liabilities. If you need a worksheet to help record everything, we have a net worth statement form available through the Extension office. Next, take a look into savings and investment strategies. If you dont have a savings, you may want to work on putting money into a simple savings account for a rainy day fund. This type of savings gives you money to pay for unexpected expenses like a car repair. Investing money takes you a step further than simple savings to help your money grow and requires research and careful thought. It may be advisable to seek the advice of a professional financial advisor. All of these steps will have you get organized and work to make your money go where you want it to go. If you stick to it, you will be paying bills on time, reducing debt and putting money into savings. Once a plan is working for you, youll be in better fiscal shape for the year. If you need assistance with more information on money management, contact the Madison County Extension office. The University of Florida Extension/IFAS Madison County is an Equal Employment Opportunity Institution.Viewpoints & OpinionsIwatch and see with my eyes a man, who will always be strong in my mind, growing frail and weak. Sometimes, he responds with bursts of energy but then has to stop and catch his breath. My father will be 78 years old on Tuesday, Jan. 21. He has outlived all his brothers and he has lived a fairly healthy lifestyle since he had quadruple bypass in April of 1993. He quit smoking back then and he even outlived his cardiologist who was at least 10 or 15 years younger than he. He never was much to drink and I can attest that it has been at least over 20 years since I saw him even drink a beer. The only vice that I think my father may have is that he still likes to indulge in ice cream every once in a while or eat cobbler at ONeals. Those are not good indulgences for a diabetic. Daddy has been a rock for all my life and he has always been there for me. When I went into cardiac arrest in Dec. 2011, he was at the hospital with me. The cover shot of the book I wrote about the experience, Sudden Death: Gods Overtime, is a photo that Bryant Thigpen took of him at my bed as I am hooked to a ventilator. Bryant said the words that came from his mouth were, I love you, son. I love my father too. God has blessed me with him. While my mom taught me to love to read, my dad taught me to love to read biographies of great men, history and the Bible. The next two weeks will be busy for my daddy, and for me, as I take him to Lake City on his birthday for an appointment with his podiatrist. On Friday, he has to go to Gainesville for a hematology appointment and a bone marrow biopsy. On the following Wednesday, he has to go back to Lake City to meet with the pharmacist about his uncontrolled diabetes. I thank God that He blessed me with an earthly father who protected me when I was a child, disciplined me and taught me to put God rst in my life and to put love into my family. He is a rock in my mind that will never crumble. If you see him before Tuesday, wish him a happy birthday. Happy birthday, Daddy. 2Madison Friday, January 17, 2014 Jacob BembryColumnist Conservative Corner Conservative CornerBy Nelson A. Pryor Resolve To Improve Your FinancesThe Art Of ManipulationNot long after Germany launched its blitzkrieg of Western Europe, a mysterious man from the British government arrived in New York. His name was William Stephenson, and his mission was to set up a new press and propaganda operation for the British. America was then anti war. No entangling alliance, as George Washington used to call it. In a book entitled: Those Angry Days, Lynne Olson reveals the pressures, both pro and con, in getting us into World War II. Stephensons organization, British Security Coordination, was just one of the groups selling, or unselling, the war. His group employed nearly one thousand people, at its Rockefeller Center headquarters on Fifth Avenue, NYC. Some two thousand additional staffers were stationed in Canada, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. Ian Fleming, would model his famous ctional character, James Bond, in part on Stephenson. The goal appeared to be, to covertly, discredit isolationists, through disinformation. Working with and through the FBI, these agents handed them thousands of condential reports. According to the ofcial BSC history, among those who rendered services of particular value were the columnists Dorothy Thompson, Walter Lippmann, Walter Winchell, and Drew Pearson. Another prominent group was the Century Club, on Fortythird Street, in midtown Manhattan. Its critics saw the council as an invisible government, secretly setting the parameters of U.S. foreign policy. Many of the most prominent news editors and writers were members. William Allen White, a small newspaper publisher from Emporia, Kansas, was also prominent. His Committee to Defend America by Aiding the Allies became an unofcial public relations agency for the Roosevelt administration. Whites idea was to ll the radio and the newspapers and the Congressional mail with the voices of prominent citizens urging America to become the nonbelligerent ally of France and England. At its height, it had over 300 local chapters. And then of course, Pearl Harbor happened. These propaganda networks had done their work, softened up the isolationists, and the war was joined. We had shifted from 80 percent disapproval to just about unanimous support for England and her allies. One wonders about today. Who is pushing us to war now? Do we have forces at work today? Just as for the 1940s?THE MADISON COUNTY REPUBLICAN EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE Will Meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28, at the Republican Victory Office. ALL REPUBLICANS WELCOME Paid for and approved by the Madison County Republican Executive Committee A Rock That Won't Crumble Diann DouglasGuest ColumnistMadison County Extension ServiceI would like to commend Ms. Greene for her column on the movie "Lone Survivor." I deeply concur with her opinion of the movie and our military personnel. As a veteran, I wish to thank her for her appreciation of those who serve this country. You are not alone, Emerald. We are just too polite and courteous to vent the rage we are feeling when disparaging comments are made about the courageous people who protect us. But, I think that time is coming to an end. One cannot appreciate the level of disrespect opined by CNN reporter Jake Tapper until you see this movie or read the book. He obviously has no idea of what it means to sacrice for a greater cause or for your country. If I may offer the following advice before seeing this movie... Read the book "Lone Survivor". The book has much more detail than the movie and it will give you a better understanding of Petty Ofcer Luttrell and what it takes to be a Navy SEAL. Bring a box of Kleenex. God bless the United States of America, her military and all the men and women who put on a uniform and defend her from harm. (I would also like to mention that Marcus Luttrell wrote a follow up book to "Lone Survivor" titled "Service: A Navy SEAL at War." That book chronicles his service after the mission in Afghanistan, his recuperation and how he returns to the battleeld in Ramadi, Iraq. It is also a profoundly moving tribute to the warrior brotherhood and why they are willing to sacrice everything for the sake of family, nation and freedom. Something most mainstream media commentators will never understand.)

Helmer, suspecting that something had crawled into his ear while he slept, tried using a vacuum cleaner to pull the creature out, but was unsuccessful, so he tried putting water in his ear to ush it out, which was also unsuccessful. Helmers roommate drove him to the hospital where a doctor put olive oil into his ear to encourage the insect out, but instead it moved further down Helmers ear canal. The doctor then used forceps to pull a cockroach, more than of an inch long, from Helmers ear and said they had never removed an insect that large from anyones ear before. Helmer said some of his friends have started sleeping with earplugs or headphones, but he has no plans of doing so. Kenyan Man Awakes After Being Declared Dead In Kenya, a man from Naivasha awoke in a morgue, 20 hours after he had been declared dead. Paul Mutora, 24, was admitted to a hospital in critical condition with pesticide poisoning as a result of an apparent suicide attempt. Mutora set off panic when he regained consciousness after hospital workers declared him dead and sent him to the morgue. Dr. Joseph Mburu, superintendent in charge of the hospital, said Mutoras death-like condition may have been due to the drug used by the hospital to treat poisoning victims and said an investigation has been opened into how he was incorrectly declared dead. Man Kills Landlord To Eat His Heart After Argument Over Chess Game In Dublin, 34year-old Sverio Bellante was arrested and charged with killing his 39-year-old landlord, Tom OGorman over a chess game. The two men had been involved in the game for a year, when an argument broke out over a move that ended in OGorman being stabbed dozens of times and having his chest cavity opened up so that Bellante could eat his heart. At the arraignment, Bellante offered no plea and when charged with murder he only said, I am guilty. A source from the investigation said, The victims heart was intact but the postmortem conrms that a lung was removed from the body and has not been located.

I currently operate a Large Family Childcare Home in Greenville, Florida. I have provided childcare services for many individuals in my community for over 15 years. Due to the recent outbreaks of the flu and numerous children missing school because of the cold and flu virus, I would like to provide the following information to all parents. During the cold, flu and allergy season it is really hard to determine if the symptoms a child is displaying is contagious. As childcare providers we are to maintain a safe and healthy environment for all children. This includes keeping the environment safe from contagious diseases. Even with a strict regimen of cleaning and sanitizing within any childcare program, some germs are transmitted through the air. Please remember the children play within close proximity of one another and once the germs are airborne it is difficult to treat the area. As partners in your childs growth and development we must remember that we are also partners in maintaining a safe and healthy learning environment for all the children and staff.

Do you find yourself among them? If so, try to overcome the urge to procrastinate and start saving as soon as possible. When it comes to investing for long-term goals, time can be your most powerful ally. The reason time can work for you is because of a concept called compounding. The idea behind compounding is simple -when your investment earns money, this amount is reinvested in your account and potentially generates more earnings. Over time, this process can increase the growth potential of your original investment. If your earnings are reinvested for a long enough period, compounding can reduce some of the pressure on you to invest greater amounts as you approach retirement. The power of reinvested earnings partly explains why some people who start investing early in their careers often end up with more money than people who start later, even if their total contributions are less. Your employer-sponsored plan may be one of the most convenient ways to make compounding work for you. Every paycheck, you have a new opportunity to add to your retirement savings. For 2013, you may be able to contribute a maximum of $17,500 (check with your employer, because some organizations may impose lower limits). If you are age 50 or older, you may also have the opportunity to save up to $5,500 more. Even if you cannot afford to invest the maximum amount, try to do as much as you can. Of course, you cant benefit from compounding if you dont stay invested. Withdrawing money during your working years could wipe out or reduce the savings you have accumulated, which would reduce some of the benefit of compounding. So dont procrastinate. Start saving as soon as possible and take advantage of what compounding can do for you.Stacy Bush, PresidentBush Wealth ManagementThe Bush Wealth Advantage Our column, The Bush Wealth Advantage is our way of giving back to the community with all sorts of insights, relevant news, and practical wealth planning strategies. 847829

Ms. Gainey refers to herself as a rookie teacher as this is only her second year of teaching and came to MCCS with a vision of finding a way every day to reach at least one child in her classroom. She likens her philosophy on teaching to planting and caring for crops. As a farmer uses different seasons and nutrients to grow the best crops they can, Ms. Gainey believes teachers should use skills and methods to teach children based on their individual needs. When teaching in the classroom, Ms. Gainey believes creativity is one of her greatest strengths because she said she often finds herself in the middle of a teaching lesson and out of nowhere she thinks of a totally different way to teach the lesson. Going with the flow and analyzing data in order to increase results are also some of her self-described strengths. Ms. Gainey feels the difference between a good teacher and an outstanding teacher is, a good teacher teaches, but a great teacher goes beyond the academics and builds lasting positive relationships with children and instills strong morals and selfconfidence in them so that they will believe that no matter how big the task, they can and WILL be somebody. Interests outside the classroom for Ms. Gainey are cooking, which she describes as her escape from reality, and her son who she says is the most amazing six-year-old she knows and that a lot of her motivation comes from wanting a better childhood and future for him than what she had. The second chosen Teacher of the Week is fourth grade teacher, Tyhesha Judge-Fogle. Ms. Fogle is also the girls volleyball coach, which is appropriate, since her days in high school were spent partly in basketball, softball, volleyball and track. Ms. Fogles academic time in high school was not as successful as she said she experienced a lot of frustration and was often times embarrassed because of how little she felt she knew or that she was not as far along as her classmates. Her decision to become a teacher was to alleviate the frustration (some) kids may feel, along with the anxiety that they may have. Her desire is to make their academic experience more enjoyable and relevant by bringing the real world into the classroom. Ms. Fogle believes all students are capable of learning and can be successful in an engaged, inviting and safe classroom. She said that teaching students the joy of learning is what will make them become lifetime learners. Teachers never giving up by researching and implementing different strategies in order to capture their students attention, is what Ms. Fogle believes creates an outstanding teacher. She says teachers need to dedicate time to teach different and innovative methods in order for students to use 100 percent of their potential and to remain interested in school. The person she looks up to and would most like to emulate is another MCCS educator, Ms. Katrina Aikens. She said Aikens inspires her students not only academically, but also spiritually and she hopes someday to be as humble as Aikens, not just as an educator, but also showing students the gift of Gods love.Photo SubmittedJaukena Gainey says the most satisfying thing about teaching is seeing the fruits of her labor by watching students actively learn what is being taught and then using that learning in appropriate and effective ways.Photo SubmittedTyhesha JudgeFogle says the most satisfying thing about teaching is knowing her lessons can extend outside of the classroom, from the student into the community, making education exponential. Saint Leo University Selected As A Top Military-Friendly School In Military Advanced Educations 2014 Guide To Military-Friendly Colleges & UniversitiesMilitary Advanced Education (MAE) has awarded Saint Leo University the designation of a Top Military-Friendly University in its 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities, just released December 19, and available online at From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAEs 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities provides potential students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to our men and women in uniform. Saint Leo University has remained rm in our commitment to helping veterans and activeduty servicemembers achieve their educational goals, said Arthur F. Kirk, Jr., president of Saint Leo University. Educating those who serve denes who we are as a university and a community. We prepare our graduates to serve God, country, and community. This designation reafrms our commitment to the military, now 40 years standing, Dr. Kirk added. Among the attributes considered in evaluating this years institution for inclusion in the guide are the exibility of online learning options, extent of transfer credits accepted by degree level, on-campus ROTC, Servicemember Opportunity Colleges (SOC) participation, on-campus active duty/veteran assistance, the support provided to the families of servicemembers, faculty trained in veteran reintegration issues, presence on military installations, and full-time counselors trained in veteran-specic mental health concerns, to name but a few. Our staff used strict criteria to evaluate the submissions of the respondents, and we had a record number of schools participating this year. We believe the guide serves as an invaluable tool for both education services ofcers (ESOs) and transition ofcers when advising servicemembers about their educational opportunities, said Kelly Fodel, MAE editor. I encourage students to check out our searchable database online, Fodel said. We designed this database with military students in mind. We want to help them make informed choices, so we are giving them access to all the survey questions and answers provided by the schools, as well as explanations about critical issues like the schools activation and deployment policies, withdrawal policies, scholarship and nancial aid information, and important support information.

Madison Academy Honor Roll --Third Six Weeks--


8Madison Friday, January 17, 2014Bro. Jim challenged us to recall the time we were saved as we sang We Will Remember and I Worship You, Almighty God. The hymns centered on the cross and included At Calvary, There Is Power in the Blood, and the worship choirs special At the Cross. The offertory Lynne played was Psalm 42:1 set to music. Read it for yourself and meditate on it. I have a saying in the office, God respects us when we work, but He loves us when we sing. Music/singing is a marvelous way to express our love for the Lord. Continuing with sermons from the Sermon on the Mount, Bro. Gabes sermon, entitled, Biblical Fasting was based on Matthew 6:16-18. Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. These verses dont need a lot of explanation. We see that Jesus did expect us to fast, but not like a hypocrite. Fasting comes from the inner self. We are subjecting our will to Gods will, focusing on God, and prayer. We must be humbled as we fast. Some reasons we might fast could be prayers not being answered, no resolution to a problem or we are just broken because of a situation. Although we are told to fast in secret and in a way that no one will know that we are fasting, our reward will be open and folks will know that weve been with God. Jan. 19 ~ Sanctity of Life Sunday We will be collecting offerings for A Womans Pregnancy Center, the local organization that ministers to ladies who are in crisis pregnancies.
