Senator Willard Saulsbury, Delaware, gave one of the most inspirational speeches I ever read, on January 27, 1863. The Congressional Globe, page 546, records this speech, just for you, and our time. Â“But, sir, the free genius of American institutions takes the humble boy, struggling for fortune and for fame, by the hand, and bids him to look to fameÂ’s bright temple that shines afar, and tells him that no earthly object of ambition is excluded from his view; that if he acts well his part, not only 'there all the honor lies,Â’ but there all that is dignied and great resides. We all, though we may become puffed up by momentary vanity, in our sober moments of reection must admit the fact that nothing but the free genius of American institutions has ever admitted us into this the highest court of the nationÂ’s deliberations. That being so, should we not, in this extremity of a nationÂ’s fate, put forth every effort to secure these blessings not only to ourselves but to our children hereafter? Sir, could the great and good men who formed this Union, and who have passed away from the political theater of action, now look down from their heavenly abodes upon this assembly, they would say, forget your partisan wrangles, forget that you are Democrats and Republicans; arouse yourselves to the emergency of the present hour; think who you are and whose representatives you are; and, in the impulses and promptings of a noble manhood, and well your part in this the hour of your countryÂ’s dissolution. If we could do that, if we could forget party, if we could forget party feeling, even now, dark and gloomy as is the present hour, I think I could see once more the true spirit and the genius of American institutions moving the heart and prompting the actions of the representatives of the States and the people once more. I fancy that I could see once more the emblem of our nation, the great American eagle, bearing aloft in triumph the good old national ag, with no star obscured and no stripe erased, carrying it upon every mountain-top and in the midst of every valley, proclaiming, in tones never to be forgotten, the words of an eminent New England statesman, Â‘Liberty and union, now and forever, one and inseparable.Â’Â” As soon as your children start using a cell phone, computer or other mobile device, you need to be talking to them about online safety and appropriate behavior. Create an honest and open environment. Even if your kids are comfortable approaching you, donÂ’t wait for them to start the conversation. Communicate your values clearly to help your kids make smarter decisions when they face a difficult situation. Most kids need to hear information repeated in small doses for it to really sink in. When very young children start using a computer, they should be supervised closely. You may want to restrict access to sites that you know to be inappropriate. During the Tween years (between the ages of 9 to 12) children start exploring more on their own, but that doesnÂ’t mean you donÂ’t want (or need) to be close at hand. You may want to consider parental controls including filtering or monitoring tools. However, many middle school kids (or their older friends) have the technical know-how to find a way to get around them. As you consider what they see and do on the Internet, think about how much time they spend online. Consider setting limits on how often they can be online and how long those sessions should last. By the time they reach their teen years, they are forming their own values and beginning to take on the values of their peers. Many experience more independence from their parents. Teens have more Internet access through cell phones, mobile devices or friendÂ’s computers as well as more time to themselves. It isnÂ’t realistic to try to always be in the same room as your teens when theyÂ’re online. They need to know that you, and other family members, can walk in and out of the room any time and can ask them about what theyÂ’re doing online. Even the most tech-savvy kids need to understand that not everything they see on the Internet is true, that people on the Internet may not be who they appear to be, that information or images they share can be seen far and wide, and that once something is posted online, itÂ’s almost impossible to Â“take it back.Â”Viewpoints & Opinions2 Â€ Madison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, August 15, 2014 Conservative Corner Conservative Corner By Nelson A. Pryor, Lee, Fl. Madison County Extension Service From The Desk Of Chief Gary Calhoun Internet Safety And Your KidsSchool is about to begin again, it is often a time of great anticipation for kids of all ages. It seems like summer just started and we are now looking at a brand new school year. Adults often think a childÂ’s life is easy, but the reality is that childhood is full of stress and any change or transition can make life uneasy for your school-age child. Dr. Suzanna Smith, UF Extension Family Life Specialist, shares some insight about children and the stress they might experience going back to school, so I thought I would pass it on to you this week. Usually stress is greatest during the beginning days and weeks of the new school year. Parents are very important in helping children manage stress and get off to a good start in school. When school begins, it is a change of routine with new challenges. Whether it's kindergarten, middle school or high school, your child is on the brink of something big; anxious about leaving familiar comforts and starting something new. Stress can be bad or good. We really canÂ’t go through life without some stress. It can be good when it motivates us to do our best or energizes us to try new things. Stress is bad when it becomes overwhelming and renders a person unable to deal with the pressures. With too much stress, children may become anxious and fearful, creating problems with their physical and mental health, their relationships with their peers, and their school performance. Physical symptoms of stress might be headaches, stomach aches or nightmares. Common behaviors might range from withdrawing from activities unusual aggressiveness, crying or temper tantrums. Supportive families and teachers can make the transition to school easier for children of all ages. There are several thing families can do to prevent stress, no matter the childÂ’s age. Help children prepare for the change. Children are less fearful when they know what to expect. Many schools now help parents and students get ready by offering open houses. Go the school for special programs and keep in touch with teachers on a regular basis. Talk about school. Help your children talk about the day by asking simple questions. If you have a teenager, be there when they are ready to talk. Keep normal house routines, this helps them know what to expect of the day and evening. Encourage your children to keep old friends and make new ones. For middle school students, starting with a friend makes the change easier. Children who are able to make new friends also do better adjusting to school. Be positive. Help children see the upcoming changes as exciting and fun, but donÂ’t deny that a child feels uncertain. Thinking and being positive helps children and adults deal with stress better. Spend time together. Do things you enjoy and have fun; schedule regular family meetings to get ready for the week at school and work. Help kids develop coping skills. Children who know how to solve problems are better able to handle the difculties they are bound to face when they enter school. Parents can help their children think things through and learn to get help when needed. Manage your own stress. Children often pick up on their parentsÂ’ anxiety and this becomes another stressor, so stay calm. When under stress, children and parents need to try to stay calm. Take deep breaths. You can get through it and tell yourself and your child that things will be ok. Listen to your children and teenagers when they talk. Show your love and acceptance and avoid criticizing them. Most children feel anxious the rst days of school. If these feelings continue and the child is having nightmares, headaches or stomachaches, or wants to come home during the day, there may be a more serious problem. Consult your family doctor for professional advice. Parents need to watch out for signs of stress in their children and do what they can ahead of time to prevent it. Parents can also help their children to manage stress by talking things over, thinking things through, relaxing and helping children build a strong network of caring friends.

Some of the allegations are misleading. In 2010, the city commission began using a different audit firm. The FY 12-13 audit includes the following statements: Deteriorating Financial Conditions Â– From our audit procedures, we found the following conditions which together comprise Â“deteriorating financial conditionsÂ” as defined by Section 218.503(1) Florida StatutesÂ… I received an unsigned Â– anonymous Â– letter (the Stinger). The audit recommendation is to the point: Â“To correct these deteriorating financial conditions we recommend that the City implement strict measures during the current budget cycle to assure that reserved revenues are sufficient to fund fiduciary expenditures and replenish needed fiscal reserves in the General Fund, as well as the Enterprise Fund. Finances should then be closely monitored during the subsequence year to ensure that these objectives are met.Â” Last year based upon the FY 11-12 audit, the city manager made recommendations to the commission. The city manager has made recommendations to the commission this year which address (remedy) the deteriorating financial condition. Ultimately, the budget decisions are made by the commission. The City of Live Oak (and many local governments) must deal with deteriorating financial conditions.

Ron Fall, born February 10, 1942, who grew up in Pompton Plains, N.J., passed away quietly during the evening hours of Monday, August 4 at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. He did not survive this last three month's courageous struggle for his life and was finally able to let go peacefully. He is survived by his wife, Theresa (Terry) Fall, of Madison; his son, Austin D. Fall, of Virginia Beach, Va.; his sister, Helen Hauck, of Hamilton, Mass.; and one niece and one nephew, both residing in Massachusetts. A Navy man in active duty from 1959 to 1963 and forever and always in service to his country, he believed strongly in the Constitution and in what it means to be an American. Having lived in several places in these United States, and finally making his home in Madison for the past 20-plus years, his life's journey was eclectic at least and adventurous at best; he never hesitated to take the road less traveled and all of those who knew him were better for it. He always had a soft spot in his heart for the plight of the abused, animals and humans alike, and was always ready to help where and when he could. His body is being cremated and there will be no formal services at this time. He would prefer donations of money, bags of food, towels or time be presented to the Wounded Warrior Program, the ASPCA or your local animal shelter as your gift of the celebration of his life. August 12, 1949 Steve Bevan, Jimmie Bevan, Clayton Jones, Robert Andrews, Carlton Wells and Buddy McWilliams have returned home from spending a week at the Suwannee River CouncilÂ’s Camp at Cypress Lake. The boys are members of Madison Scout Troop 606. Andy Gibbs, age nine years, son of Mr. and Mrs. M C Gibbs, was treated at the local hospital Sunday for cuts on the face which required stitches.

John Franklin Thomas, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jim Thomas of Lee, underwent an emergency appendectomy Sunday in the Live Oak hospital. Young Thomas is an employee of SetzerÂ’s store in Live Oak, and was formerly on the sales force of SetzerÂ’s Madison store. Mrs. James Conway entertained twelve guests at a charming luncheon given in honor of her mother, Mrs. R. V. Dial, on the occasion of her birthday anniversary last Wednesday. August 10, 1951 Brenda Baker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. D. Baker, celebrated her sixth birthday Tuesday afternoon with a party at the childrenÂ’s park. About forty young guests enjoyed the delightful affair. Sometime Wednesday night or early Thursday morning John Lee Newton sawed his way out of the Madison County jail, after unsuccessfully urging other occupants to join him. Newton, 220 lbs colored man, was lodged in jail on charges of breaking and entering and unarmed robbery. He is about 28 years old.

Around Madison CountyMadison Enterprise-Recorder Â€ 5 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, August 15, 2014 Back To School Explosion Back To School Explosion Â Â A SuccessÂŽ A SuccessÂŽBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc. The annual Â“Back To School Â– Stay In School ExplosionÂ” was a success, said Jerome Wyche of the Madison Prevention Coalition. Â“It was excellent,Â” he added. With over 20 presenters, 35 volunteers, numerous community supporters and other supporters who came from as far away as Lake City, Tallahassee, Perry and even Jacksonville, the event drew hundreds of people, serving an estimated 1100 students and parents with free school supplies and information to help get the children school-ready. The Back-To-School event, which has grown every year, is a monumental undertaking. Just a few days earlier, Wyche had spoken to the Madison Rotary Club to talk about the upcoming event, explaining that with a great new hospital just opening up, a great school system was the other part of the equation needed for attracting new businesses to the area. However, in small rural communities like Madison County, which has been noted as one of the areas of persistent poverty several years in a row by the state of Florida, the Madison Coalition realized that many families couldn't afford the school supplies their children needed each year. Â“We don't worry about who they are,Â” he said. Â“All kids can come and get free school supplies.Â” The coalition focuses on the basics Â– the things that the children need at their desks Â– in order to be prepared for the upcoming school year. For months, businesses, organizations, clubs and community members had been donating supplies or money toward the Aug. 9 event, and three days earlier, over two dozen volunteers gathered for three hours at the NFCC Fitness Center to sort the massive quantities of supplies according to grade level, pack them into donated book bags and stack the book bags in their designated areas. Within the next few days, the Coalition will have a detailed press release thanking all its many partners and generous donors who helped make the Back-To-School Explosion a success. In the meantime, a lot of the story can be told through photos. Photo Submitted By RandREventsProWhere there's a grill, there's a grillmaster.

Question Of The Week Around The Town Of LeeMadison Enterprise-Recorder Â€ 9 www.greenepublishing.com Friday, August 15, 2014Lions Club International: Eye Screening Saves A LifeBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Many people know about the importance of regular eye exams to preserve vision, but sometimes, eye exams can save a life. Even before a regular eye exam, a preliminary eye screening can spot the need for a full exam early enough to make a difference. Healthy eyes and vision preservation has been a major focus of the Lions Club International organization and Lions Clubs everywhere, and that goal includes eye exams and eye glasses for children. Clubs everywhere emphasize this, picking up the cost for children whose families cannot afford glasses and eye doctors. Studies have shown that children who have vision problems that are corrected do better in school, and many times, those with eye conditions that are caught early can be treated, giving them years of better vision into their adult lives. Even before vision problems in young children become evident, eye screenings can detect small problems before they become bigger. And in some cases, an eye screening can catch a deadly disease and save the child's life. That was the story coming out of the Lions Club in Bloomeld, New York, a story that was featured recently in the Lions Club International newsletter. Brianna Leitten, who was ve years old at the time, was part of a free eye screening provided at her school by the Bloomeld Lions Club. The screenings were conducted, with parental consent, using a $10,000 dollar camera, that can detect irregularities or abnormalities in the eye. Unlike a full eye exam, a screening does not provide a diagnosis it simply looks for abnormalities within the eye that fall outside normal limits. If any abnormalities are found, the child's family is referred to an eye doctor for a full exam. Brianna was lucky that she was a part of the 64 percent of children who had parental consent for the eye screening, that the Bloomeld Lions Club (along with several other clubs in that part of New York) had access to the special camera, and that the abnormality in her left eye was caught when it was. When her parents received the notication, they made an appointment with an optometrist, but in the days leading up to the appointment, they began to notice sudden, startling changes in the appearance of their daughter's eye, with strange, white reections of light, and an enlarged pupil. Immediately after her visit with the optometrist, Brianna saw an eye specialist at a nearby hospital for an MRI and a CT scan. The diagnosis was either a tumor or Coats disease, but either one meant the eye had to be removed immediately before the cancer spread. There was no time to wait for a biopsy. Within days of the surgery, Brianna was back at school doing all the things she had done before. She now has a prosthetic eye and wears glasses to protect it, but other than that, she is like any other normal, active six-year-old. The Lions Club of Madison sees the story as evidence that the importance of regular eye screenings and exams cannot be underestimated, especially in young children. Several members talked about wanting to be able to do similar screenings, some day in the future, for Madison County school children, either at the beginning of the school year, or as part of the annual Back-To-School Explosion. Until then, they will continue to promote healthy vision, educate people about the importance of regular eye exams and provide eye exams and glasses to low-income children and individuals. If you could stay a certain age forever, what age would it be and why? Earlene Roland: "Age 40, because my kids, Haley and Chase, were still young and active in sports and I stayed busy with their school and activities." Melissa McCamman: "Age 5, because I could still take naps and not be made fun of." Dorothy Knitter: "Age 21, but I would want to know what I know now." Mildred Matthews: "Age 18, because I would be able to go around and do what I want to do. I would go to church and help people who needed help. I would take care of them." John R. Davis: "Age 17, that's when I started doing my Elvis Presley shake and could do it again at my class reunion." (John Davis was demonstrating his shake in this picture.) Happy Retirement Is Cause For CelebrationBy Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc.F ormer Fire Chief Alfred Martin and former Lieutenant Earnest Johnson, Jr., after a combined 60 years of service, were surprised to a large Retirement Celebration on Friday, Aug. 8, at the Madison County Senior Center.
