By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart had a very positive report for the County Commission, regarding matters of both business and pleasure, at its last meeting.On the business side, Stewart updated the Commissioners regarding the property behind the sheriff’s ofce. Everything was going smoothly, he told the board, and once some nal details were taken care of and some paperwork signed, the department should be able to take full possession and start making use of it. Regarding the patrol vehicles, the department was now 100 percent Ford Explorers. “No more Crown Vics,” he told the board, with the exception of a couple that would be kept as spares. The new Ford Explorers handled better on the road, making them safer to use, and were also more economical. “I’m hoping to reduce our maintenance budget for the coming year,” he added. On the pleasure side of his report was the Valentine’s Day event. Calling on Inv. Sharon Shadrick and Tammy Webb to join him at the podium, he spoke briey about the Florida Sheriff’s Youth Ranch program, and the Valentine’s Day Heart Ball in Pinetta that would be raising funds for it. The Florida Sheriff’s Youth Ranch, with locations in Live Oak, Bradenton, Safety Harbor and Bartow, is supported by sheriff’s ofces throughout the state. “It’s not there for punishment,” he said. “It’s not there for punitive purposes. It’s there for disadvantaged kids.” Currently, the program serves about 200 children, and Stewart reported a “near 100 percent success rate” with them. Florida Sheriff’s departments also do a summer camp for disadvantaged children in Crystal River, with up to six oneweek sessions. Each year, volunteers from Sheriff’s ofces around the state Including Madison, help run the camp. Shadrick then took the oor to promote the Valentine’s Day Heart Ball taking place in Pinetta, Friday, Feb 14. The dance is semi-formal, translating to “not tuxedoes, but nice church clothes,” she said, and tickets are $30 for couples and $15 for individuals. The menu for the event is either steak or grilled chicken, with “a BIG dessert bar.” The sheriff’s department staff would also be providing live entertainment for the event. “We’re going to have a real good time,” she said. For tickets, see any member of the Madison County Sheriff’s Ofce.

Greenville Town Council Seeks To Change CharterBy Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.The Town Council of Greenville is looking to amend the existing Town Charter in 2014 to address some of the issues the council was forced to face this past year.The rst proposed amendment is listed under the heading of Vacancies and addresses absences of council members from Council meetings. The amendment reads, “The ofce of a councilmember shall become vacant in accordance with general law or if a councilmember is absent from three (3) regular and/or special Council meetings within twelve (12) months without being excused by Council prior to the third absence.” Simply stated, if a council member is a no-show at council meetings three times within one year, with no prior notice, they will no longer be able to serve. The second amendment addresses the power and responsibilities of the Town Manager and states, “The Town Manager shall designate the Town Clerk or other qualied Town employee to exercise the powers and perform the duties of Town Manager during any temporary absence or disability of the Town Manager deemed as a 45 day period. If the position of Town Manager is vacant, the council shall appoint the Town Clerk or, if the Town Clerk is unavailable due to a vacancy in position, another qualied Town employee shall be appointed temporarily toSee Town Council On Page 3City Extends Impact Fee MoratoriumBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.The City Council of Madison voted to extend the current extension on wastewater impact fees for new development. The impact fees were suspended a year ago because of the tough economy, to help ease some of the nancial hardship on residents, or at least not discourage folks who might want to build a new home or business in the downtown area. That moratorium expired Dec. 31. The commission discussed extending it for another six months to give themselves time to study it and talk to their constituents before moving forward. City Manager Tim Bennett pointed out that the potential revenue loss from these fees could be signicant, and stated that it was something of a “darned if you do, darned if you don’t” situation. One of the businesses that would be affected by reinstating the fees at this point would be a proposed pediatric center, whose nancial situation was described as “pretty tight.” Mayor Rayne Cooks asked if the fees were perhaps a little out of line with what other similar sized communities were charging, and wondered if the commission should look at those before it reinstated the wastewater fees. Commissioner Jim Stanley agreed that “we don’t want to discourage people...but don’t they want to be good citizens?” Attorney Clay Schnitker pointed out that there was the cost of wastewater operations and growth toSee Impact Fee On Page 3By Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.He was the only candidate without a Powerpoint presentation, but by the end of the meeting, the County Commissioners chose him to administer the CDBG Grant for Economic Development. Jim Parrish of Parrish and Associates described himself as “the low-tech guy.” He was up against two other competitors who had emphasized the complexity of the county’s proposed economic development project, and the teams of experts on their staff who would handle that complexity. By common agreement, none of the rms competing for the contract were present in the room while each one made its presentation to the commissioner, but Parrish also homed in on the issue of complexity, telling the board that didn’t matter if the county’s project was large or small. “The rules are the same,” he said. “The CDBG looks at things like the number of jobs created.” “I am your project manager (for the grant administration),” he said. His business as a general grants consultant was a small business in Madison, a sole proprietorship, but it was something he had been doing for over 20 years, not only for Madison, but for Greeneville, Jasper and several other nearby Greene Publishing, Inc.

Jacobs Ladder Records are an important part of any family money management system. They are needed to prove financial documentation for things like property ownership, income, and expenditures for tax returns. In addition, records can function as a tool to measure the family’s financial progress. If records are lost or misplaced, extra cost and time may be involved in replacing them. Since January is the beginning of a new year and people are gathering information for income tax, it is a great time to update and reorganize your family records. There is always the age old dilemma of what records to keep and what to toss. University of Florida Family Financial Extension Specialists offer consumers strategies for handling family records and the paperwork that is involved in document. Family records can be categorized into three types of records: personal, financial and property. Some should be kept permanently and others for shorter periods. Permanent personal records pertain to changes in your family situation such as: adoption, divorce, education, employment, military service, health and medical care, marriage, birth or death and citizenship. Permanent records also include social security numbers and an up-to-date copy of your will. Insurance records may be personal and financial and should be kept as long as the policies are in effect. They should be reviewed periodically to insure that they provide the protection needed by the family. Permanent financial records include those pertaining to valuable purchases, important contracts and content of your safety deposit box. Safeguard credit card numbers, installment agreements, bank records, investment, budget and expenditure records, but only as long as necessary. For income tax purposes, the Internal Revenue Service recommends keeping records at least three full years from the time taxes are filed. For example, records that support your 2013 income taxes should be kept until April 15, 2016. Some financial advisors may recommend keeping records for as many as ten years. Property records such as deeds, improvements on real property, purchase receipts for personal property and an up-todate inventory of personal and household goods, should be kept current and are considered permanent. Titles, receipts and guarantees for durable goods, such as automobiles and equipment should be kept as long as you own the property. Keep sales records for non-durable goods, such as clothing and household items, until you know the item purchased performs satisfactorily. Keep use and care information and warranties for as long as you own the item. Anytime you are getting rid of documents, be sure to shred them before putting them into the garbage. Some people may have a burn pile in the back yard which serves as a great way to destroy documents. Recycling bends are never a place for personal records. For more information on record keeping and getting organized, contact the Madison County Extension Office. We have a free fact sheet to help get you started, “Financial Recordkeeping: Organizing your Financial Life.” The University of Florida Extension/IFAS – Madison County is an Equal Employment Opportunity Institution. Viewpoints & OpinionsLife can be a struggle for us sometimes. We are always facing new battles and sometimes, it seems like insurmountable odds are stacked against us. We feel like a featherweight rookie boxer about to step into the ring against a seasoned heavyweight like Mike Tyson. It looks like it’s the end for us. Many times, the battle may be physical or it may be emotional. Either way, you are bound to get hurt. The physical battle may be against cancer or heart disease. The emotional battle may be worrying about a child who is going astray, the tragedy of a lost loved one or the breakup of a friendship or a marriage that is in turmoil. When times seem darkest, God is there in the darkness with us. So many times, we see His hands working in our lives, but when the lights are dimmed, we can’t see them. After a while, through prayer and hope, the lights come back on and we see God standing right next to the light switch, smiling at us. We look at a caterpillar, who at rst seems so full of life. It’s not a pretty thing but if one were to be able to stand in place and watch the caterpillar appear to die, it will begin to pupate. A chrysalis will appear and when the chrysalis breaks, a beautiful buttery will come forth. So many times, when we seem on the verge of defeat, we become a chrysalis and then a buttery. A buttery is a beautiful thing. It oats gracefully. God made us in His own image, so we are beautiful to Him. God sent His Son to die for our sins and that is beautiful to me.2Madison Friday, January 24, 2014 Jacob BembryColumnist Conservative Corner Conservative Corner By Nelson A. Pryor January Is A Time To Organize Family RecordsOSHA On Your FarmThe regulators from OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) are about to descend upon American farms. Heretofore, the regulators respected the law, passed and in effect since 1976, prohibiting their rules and regulations from applying on farm operations with 10 or fewer employees. Clearly Congress has been trying to provide protection for the family farms, which exist in our States across this country. Yet, lo and behold, OSHA has decided it can label certain sections of the farm something else by at and send in their regulators. U. S. Senator Mike Johanns of Nebraska, took the oor on Dec. 18, 2013, and described OSHA’s anti-agriculture agenda. Noting that this is the administration’s latest act on their anti-agricultu-re push. The Wall Street Journal of Jan. 2, in describing Johann’s OSHA speech, agreed, and labeled the activities of the regulators as “absolutely incredible” and of taking an “absurd” position, saying they were guilty of “a blatant overreach in violation of the law.” The initiative to get the small farmer was a remarkable 2011 memo from OSHA’s enforcement chief to regional administrators. The memo instructs employees on how to re-categorize small farms as commercial grain handlers. So OSHA regulators have recently begun to descend on family farms, claiming the authority to regulate their grain storage bins. Senator Johanns said that a small Nebraska farm with only one non-family employee was recently visited by OSHA regulators and ned more than $130,000 even though “OSHA made no claim that anyone had been hurt.” This past fall, two OSHA regulators showed up at the small Ohio farm of Scott Haerr, of Ohio, co-owner of a father-son partnership. Asked why they were bothering a small farm, one of the regulators responded: “Well, you have an employee.” The act of creating a job in agriculture apparently now makes one eligible for an extra-legal federal investigation. Is this the Obama economic plan for 2014? In a later meeting with an OSHA ofcial, Mr. Haerr’s attorney asked where OSHA’s jurisdiction ended on a farm like his. Mr. Haerr says there was no clear answer, other than an assurance that the agency would not regulate anything inside his house. Senator Johanns has already persuaded a bipartisan Senate coalition of 42 colleagues to urge Labor Secretary Thomas Perez to withdraw the memo and instruct OSHA to cease all actions based on its bogus interpretation of the statute. Needless to say, our Senator, Bill Nelson, has refused to sign such a letter. What gives? Who does he represent? Not the little guy farmer! The regulator has been caught red handed. Don’t let him win. Write that letter to Bill Nelson, and by the way, send a thank you to Senator Marco Rubio, for his support for the small farmer. THE MADISON COUNTY REPUBLICAN EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE Will Meet at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28, at the Madison Public Library. ALL REPUBLICANS WELCOME Paid for and approved by the Madison County Republican Executive Committee Chrysalis Diann DouglasGuest ColumnistMadison County Extension Service Something To Think AboutBy Harvey Greene We went to the EastWest Shrine game this past weekend. You should go next year; tickets are only $5-10 each, and it helps a good cause. But that does beg the question of exactly who the Shriners are. When I mention the Shriners, what comes to mind for you? Old men in tiny cars in a parade? Fuzzy hats? Clowns? What I think of when I think of the Shriners is crippled and burned children. For me the Shriners organization means over a million crippled and burned children who have been helped, all without costing their parents a single dime. Children given a new life. That is who the Shriners are to me. I believe I said this before, but I will say it again. If you ever want or need a good hefty dose of “I guess I don't have it so bad,” then I would invite you to walk into the waiting room at the Shriners Hospital in Tampa. On my last visit I was almost immediately greeted by a young girl of about three years old, walking along holding her Daddy's hand, her right foot angled straight outward at about ninety degrees away from her body. She had a stutter limp, and a smile that melted your heart. She grinned and waved at me as they passed. I gave her a big grin and waved back. Her father ashed me a smile of thanks. I don’t know if it was because I smiled at his daughter or because I was wearing a Shriner shirt. The next child I saw in the waiting room had apparently had recent surgery on one arm, now in a sling. His free hand angled back on its axis and pointed directly at his chest so that his forearm resembled the hook on the top of a walking cane. He waved cheerfully at me with the deformed arm. I will not continue to badger you with the list of what I saw, but sufce it to say, that my humility was beaten upon to the point that I was making a regular habit of wiping my eyes. Shriners Hospitals for Children are on the cutting edge of medicine in helping crippled and burned children providing the newest and best help for orthopedic, spinal cord injury, burns, and cleft palate problems. And they do this completely free to the families. Their funding comes from people like you. The doctors and nurses, the funny cars, the cute fuzzy hats, the fat old men like me raising money – none of it works, without people like you giving something to someone they do not know. So the next time you see a Shriner, don’t think of a grown man acting like a child – Think of a child. “No man stands so tall as when he stoops to help a child.” Think About it.

From Page One Madison Enterprise-Recorder 3 Friday, January 24, 2014 World NewsBy Rose KleinDriver Leaves Crash Scene With Man In Windshield In Manitowoc, Wis., a drunken driver hit a man delivering newspapers on his bicycle and drove off with the paper carrier stuck in his windshield. Steven Gove, 56, was on his threewheeled delivery bicycle when a 20-year-old man hit him and sent Gove crashing through the car’s windshield. “My entire torso was inside the car,” Gove said. “Well, when I realized I was in his car, I said, ‘Hello! How do you do? I’m the guy you hit on the bicycle.’” Instead of stopping, the man drove another block to his home and locked the car from the outside. It was then the man noticed Gove sitting in his car and asked who he was and what he was doing inside his car. Gove said, “I’m the guy you hit on the bicycle. I went through your windshield!” Gove was not seriously injured. “I don’t hold any grudges. It was an accident,” Gove said. “But I just don’t understand why he didn’t see me.” The suspect was charged with causing injury while driving drunk, hit and run and failure to render aid. Man Claims Not Bathing Keeps Him Healthy In Southern Iran, a man by the name of Amou Haji claims he hasn’t bathed in 60 years because he believes cleanliness will bring him sickness. Haji currently holds the title of “Dirtiest Man in the World.” The previous holder for not bathing was 66year-old Kailash Singh, an Indian man who went over 38 years without washing. Haji was described as having “emotional setbacks” in his youth and in addition to the bathing issue, enjoys dining on the rotten meat of dead porcupines and smokes a pipe lled with animal feces. Haji also alternates between living in a brick shack and a grave-like hole in the ground to keep him grounded and in touch with the reality of life. Man Turns Violent Over Dirty Dishes In Tenn., a 23-yearold man is facing domestic assault charges after becoming violent with his 41-year-old mother about washing dirty dishes. When the mother refused to return his cell phone charger until he nished washing dishes, the man began breaking things in the kitchen. The woman called the police before being chased into a bedroom by her son, where she locked herself in. He forced himself into the room by unlocking the door with a credit card and then pinned his mother behind the door. After police responded to the mother’s call for help, the man admitted “throwing a glass in the sink, breaking it, and slamming the door of the dishwasher causing some minor damage.” Ofcer Stuart Ogg said, “He (the man) stated he was wanting the charger for his phone but his mother would not give it to him until the dishes were put away.” The MadisonEnterprise-Recorder PublisherEmerald GreeneSenior Staff WriterJacob BembryStaff WritersLynette Norris, Rose KleinGraphic DesignerTori SelfAdvertising Sales RepresentativesJeanette Dunn, Shanna SwopeBookkeeperBrooke KinsleyClassified and Legal AdsCheltsie KinsleyDeadline for classi“eds is Monday at 3 p.m.Deadline for legal advertisements is Wednesday at 3 p.m. There will be a $7 charge for affidavits.Circulation DepartmentSheree MillerSubscription Rates:In-County $35 Out-of-County $45 E-Edition $25 ($5 add on to existing subscription) (State & local taxes included)Since 1865 -Telling it like it is with honesty and integrity.ŽThe Madison The Madison Enterprise-Recorder Enterprise-RecorderMadison Recorder established 1865 New Enterprise established 1901 Consolidated June 25, 1908 Published weekly by Greene Publishing Inc., 1695 S SR 53, Madison, FL 32340.

The drawing will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 29 and the winner will be notied by telephone. For rules and more details, please visit communities. He was very familiar with all those communities and the area surrounding them, and a big part of the grants administration modus operandi was the long-term relationships he had developed with the people and the communities he had worked with on those projects over the years. It was as much about those relationships and knowing who could make things happen, as it was about technical expertise. Other competing rms included Fred Fox Enterprises, Inc., a 30-year-old rm headquartered in St. Augustine, but with economic development projects to its name all over North Florida. Susan Emrich of David H. Melvin, Inc., established in 1989, gave an enthusiastic presentation, with a rm that could provide both administration and engineering services. “Having everything together under one roof is a powerful tool,” she said. “It would be a pleasure to be assigned to work with Madison, because that’s home.” In fact, David H. Melvin, Inc. did score a little higher than Parrish when the commissioner did their initial rankings during the presentations, coming in at 371 points to Parrish’s 365. It was a close race, and Attorney Tommy Reeves, in response to a question from one of the commissioners said that the board was not bound by the rankings, but if they wanted to go with a rm other than the top-ranked, it would be a good idea to give a reason, even though it was only a six-point spread. The reason, articulated by Commissioner Ronnie Moore, who had worked with both Melvin and Parrish in the past and commended them both, was that he felt it would be better not to have both grant administration and project engineering services under one roof. Having two different entities looking at the project from different sides seemed like a better way to proceed. The commission mostly agreed, and voted to award the contract to Parrish. Grant Cont. From Page 1 Town Council Cont. From Page 1serve as Acting Town Manager, compensation commensurate with additional duties and responsibilities, until such time as a permanent Town Manager is hired.” The absence of a Town Manager in 2013 was a prominent problem for the council on how to go about lling the position. This amendment would give protocol if the Town Manager position were to become vacant again. The nal proposed amendment addresses rewording of the Charter so that it is politically correct by reading gender neutral. The proposal reads, “The Charter of the Town of Greenville shall be revised to incorporate gender neutral language. To wit, “councilman” shall be “councilmember” and “he” shall be “he/she.”" The Council voted two to one to approve these changes to the Charter at the City Hall meeting, this past Tuesday, Jan.21. The three amendments will be on the ballot at the upcoming election, March 11, 2014 and voted on by the citizens of Greenville. Burglary Cont. From Page 1curred on Friday morning, Jan. 3. Police Ofcer J. Dewey made contact with Edrick Emanuel, 19, in reference to an active warrant on him at the time. He was arrested and transported to the Madison County Jail. According to a Madison Police Department report, on Wednesday, Jan. 22, Ofcer Dewey and Ofcer Chris Cooks made contact with Emanuel, while still in the county jail, in reference to his involvement in the burglary of the Gunslingers Pawn Shop. Emanuel then stated he had broken into Gunslingers by busting the window out and then also admitted he had stolen an Xbox 360, two IPods, and a cell phone. Emanuel has been charged with burglary to a structure and grand theft. Arson Cont. From Page 1the Madison County Building Inspectors Ofce concerning a Barbara Tyson calling the building inspector and making threats toward him and an Ofcer employed with the Sheriff’s Ofce. Tyson called again while Investigators were present at the Inspectors ofce and they too heard the threats she made as she further advised that she was en route to burn the deputy’s home and then going to burn the building inspectors’ home. While investigators initiated cell phone tracking to locate the position of Tyson, other ofcers were assigned to the areas of the residences of threat. Deputy Chris O’Brian located Tyson on Seaboard Street, in Lee, as she was attempting to locate the Deputy’s residence. Tyson was taken into custody as she continued to make threats of bodily harm against a Sheriff’s Ofce Deputy. Barbara Tyson was arrested and charged with attempted arson. Additional charges are pending. Mischief Cont. From Page 1residence, Ofcer Spicer was informed that Graham had originally begun violently banging on the door of the residence and demanding the victim to come outside. The victim then observed Graham waving an aluminum baseball bat at him. At that point, a witness intervened, at which time the defendant then struck the front glass porch door with the bat, causing both the upper and lower glass to break. When informed that law enforcement was being called, Graham left the property. Ofcer Spicer made contact with Graham and she was placed under arrest and charged with aggravated assault and criminal mischief. Impact Fee Cont. From Page 1think about. The wastewater plant would need to be updated from time to time as well. “We need to think about where we need to go with our water system in 10 to 15 years,” he said. After several minutes of discussing both sides of the matter, Commissioner Stanley made the motion to extend the moratorium another six months. The measure passed three to one, with Commissioner Judy Townsend casting the dissenting vote. (Commissioner Jim Catron was absent for medical reasons). Jessica Graham Rainfall Cont. From Page 1inches higher than the long-term average of 54.61 inches. Decits of up to 15 inches, however, persisted in certain areas, including the upper Aucilla basin in Jefferson County. And the average rainfall for the three-month period ending Dec. 31 was 1.1 inches lower than the long-term average of 8.4 inches. Madison County received 3.66 inches, compared with the December average of 3.79 inches. Madison County received 58.91 inches during the last 12 months, or 105 percent of the annual normal. Jefferson County, meanwhile, received 3.40 inches, compared with the December average of 4.25 inches. The county received 55.19 inches of rainfall during the last 12 months, or 91 percent of the annual normal. With the exception of a few rivers, the levels of most waterways in the district remained generally normal. Lake levels likewise remained generally stable, if slightly below their long-term averages. And Sneads Smokehouse in Jefferson in particular dropped at least six inches below it's lowest recorded level. The report notes that in November, “The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission completed a hydrologic restoration project at the site that entailed the removal of a 1960s-era earthen dam that had separated the lake from a sinkhole.” “It is not known at this time how future uctuations will compare to past behavior based on 37 years of records,” the reports states, adding that statistics will be updated annually to reect changes in the lake’s hydrology. Groundwater levels varied, with some monitoring wells showing a drop, others an increase and yet others remaining stable. “One quarter of the wells had levels below their long-term median, and one well in northern Jefferson County remained below the 25thpercentile,” the report states. The National Weather Service Climate Prediction Center’s threemonth outlook shows a potential below normal precipitation through March. The SRWMD continues its Phase I Water Shortage Advisory, which urges the voluntary reduction of unnecessary water usage. The SRWMD encompasses all or parts of 15 counties in north-central Florida, including Madison and the eastern portion of Jefferson.

Experience a world of medieval magic, where jousting knights, dancing gypsies and historic heroes mingle with visitors at the 28thAnnual Hoggetowne Medieval Faire. During the last weekend in January and the first weekend in February, on Saturday, Jan. 25 and Sunday, Jan. 26, and Friday, Jan. 31 through Sunday, Feb. 2, the Alachua County Fairgrounds transforms into a medieval marketplace filled with hundreds of artisans and entertainers. A special School Day celebration on Friday, Jan. 31 features halfprice ticket sales for all guests. “The Hoggetowne Medieval Faire is a place where people of all ages can appreciate the rich culture of the Middle Ages,” said Faire coordinator Linda Piper. “Coming to the Faire and enjoying its authentic atmosphere has become a tradition for families from across Florida.” Fairgoers do not just visit to immerse themselves in the medieval atmosphere, they come to see more than 160 talented artisans, who travel from across the country to display and sell their traditional wares. Visitors can find one-of-akind pieces of jewelry, stone and wood carvings, blacksmithing, weaving, hand-blown glassware and leather goods. They can also shop for medieval clothing. After stopping by the artisans’ booths, fairgoers can get their hair braided or glimpse into the future at a fortune teller’s booth. They can create wax hands or purchase colorful, one-of-a-kind wax roses. The winding pathways of Hoggetowne overflow with troupes of actors, musicians and street performers. Crowds cheer for armored knights as they joust on the Tournament Field, while eight stages of continuous entertainment feature majestic performances of full flight falconry, aerial acrobatics and unbelievable magic acts. In conjunction with this year’s theme of “The War of the Roses,” the Tournament Field will host a stunning show of combat entertainment during a living chess match. Watch as Margaret of Anjou tries to surprise and capture Richard, Duke of York, at Hoggetowne, but is thwarted by his superior moves. Watching these battles is enough to make any guest hungry. At the food court, visitors will enjoy a feast fit for a king. Tasty bloomin’ onions, fresh-baked pastries, sweet potato fries, giant turkey legs, homemade ice cream and succulent ribs are just some of the foods available for famished lords and ladies. The Faire also offers entertainment for children. They can embark on an adventure to the royal pavilion, where they will become lords and ladies of the court of Hoggetowne, or they can enjoy camel, pony and elephant rides. Thrilling, humanpowered push rides will also draw crowds of eager children, who can rock back and forth on a sea dragon or spin around on the Barrel of Bedlam. Adults can join in the fun with more than a dozen old-world games like archery and knife throwing. Come early to enjoy a day packed with excitement and medieval merriment. Faire hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, and 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31. Admission is $15 for adults, $7 for children ages 5 to 17 and free for children younger than 5. Tickets are half–price on Friday, Jan. 31. No waiting in line… experience the convenience of purchasing tickets in advance online at at any Domino’s Pizza in Gainesville, and in person at the Thomas Center.

The celebration was the company’s way of saying “thank you” to the North Florida community that has embraced the plant just as much as the plant has become part of the community. “We consider it an honor and a privilege to work in the Madison community,” said Rob Fisher, Madison Bottling Plant manager. “For the past 10 years, people throughout this area have been wonderful to us, and we’re pleased to host a special day to thank them for their continued support.” The family-friendly event was held at the plant on Jan. 10. During a formal program, the decade of manufacturing excellence was honored. Fisher also acknowledged the outstanding support provided by the community and what it has meant to the success of the Madison operation. The day also featured a luncheon, the WaterVentures mobile learning lab, and tours of the bottling plant that gave guests a rst-hand look at the work that goes into bottling natural spring water. At the WaterVentures lab, parked on the bottling plant grounds, the staff of three environmental educators taught visitors about the importance of protecting Florida’s natural water resources. The traveling science center is a customized 53foot semi-trailer that travels around the state visiting schools, communities and special events to provide a platform for interactive educational presentations for people of all ages. The main focus of the day was to showcase the lasting bond between Nestl Waters and the Madison County-area community, and by all measures that effort was a resounding success with nearly 200 guests attending the celebration. “This event went beyond a celebration of achievement – it was also a great opportunity to thank our neighbors for working with us in promoting sustainable harvesting and management of Madison Blue Spring, one of Florida’s premier natural spring resources,” said Kent Koptiuch, Nestl Waters’ Florida Natural Resource manager. “Protecting the water and the environment are our number one priorities. Education and awareness are essential tools in accomplishing those goals. Working together, the company and the community are making a real difference.”Photo SubmittedA Nestl educator teaches residents of the Madison community about the importance of water resources and conserving these precious and natural resources.

School6Madison Friday, January 24, 2014 MCCS Teacher Of The WeekBy Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.Ceola Graham has been teaching Kindergarten at Madison County Central School for the past 21 years and says she gets “an indescribable feeling of joy when she sees her students, faces light up when they have learned a concept or skill.” She believes that all children are unique and need nurturing in a caring, secure and stimulating environment in order for them to grow and mature intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally. Ms. Graham feels that building a meaningful relationship with her students based on caring, honesty and respect is vital and she will go the “extra mile” for them, so they understand what is expected of them, and to help them see what they can accomplish through hard work.Photo SubmittedCeola Graham believes that shes not only a teacher in the classroom, but also a mother, friend, counselor and student. Sometimes people put off saving for retirement because so many other things seem to get in the way. 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. T i m e a n d I n v e s t m e n t R e t u r n s 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. C o m p o u n d i n g W i t h E v e r y P a y c h e c k 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 cant benefit from compounding if you dont 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 dont procrastinate. Start saving as soon as possible and take advantage of what compounding can do for you.

8Madison Friday, January 24, 2014This past week has been a busy ministering one for the folks at First Baptist. Three of our “forever family” went to be with the Lord. The first was “Gangie” Lois Wainwright. She was known as the gentle, beautiful, white haired lady who loved the Lord. She was most famous for her pound cake. The next was William Sweat. He was a quiet, faithful “pew neighbor” of this writer and her family until he was no longer able to attend. Mrs. Walteria Schnitker was another one of the long time members of First Baptist to pass away this week. I met Walteria in February 2000, at my second WMU meeting for FBC. She was a part of the Friendship Sunday School Class until she moved to Dowling Park. Even then as the JOY choir would visit there, I recall her joining in the hymn singing until she was no longer able to do that. Our hostess/bereavement committee is to be commended on a job well done as they coordinated meals for all these families. The entire church body came together to share the love of Jesus in a tangible way. Our pastor was out of town for the weekend. Filling in for him was Dr. Mike Miller, Director of Missions for Middle Florida Baptist Association. After our time of praise and hymns he preached from Psalm 8. “ O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens! Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger. When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, All sheep and oxen-Even the beasts of the field, The birds of the air, And the fish of the sea That pass through the paths of the seas. O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth!” Read and meditate on how special we are as His supreme creation and how much we should value the sanctity of life.
