High Speed Chase
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Madison County law officers joined Brooks County, Geor-
gia deputies in a chase that began in Quitman, Ga. on Friday'af-
ternoon, September 29, and ended in the Madison city limits.
According to a Madison Police Department report, Robbie
Edmundson, 33, of Quitman, Ga., had stolen a 1998 Dodge
pickup truck, belonging to a man from Sparks, Ga. He was
spotted in Quitman with the truck and the chase ensued.
Sheriff's Capt. Russ Severns instigated the chase of Ed-
mundson in' Quitman after noticing the truck pull into the coun-
ty camp area at the old jail. He noticed the tag number and tried
to flag Edmundson-down. Unable to get him to halt, he shot
one of the tires out on Edmundson's vehicle.
Deputy Matt Banister led other deputies on a pursuit of Ed-
mundson into Madison County. Brooks County Sheriff Richard
Chafin said that the chase reached speeds of up to eighty miles
per hour with Edmundson, running on one rim and three full
Deputy Jason Whitfield and other Madison County
deputies joined the chase on Little Cat Road in Madison.
As the car moved across both lanes, and crossed both lanes
of traffic, Sheriff Pete Bucher advised Whitfield to back off as
he was approaching Pickle Lane, a residential area. He said that
he advised Whitfield to-keep him in sight but to back off of him
and not to push him. The Georgia deputies were right. on the
bumper as they entered Madison.

A mobile home in the Egan Hill area, south
of Madison off Highway 14, erupted into flames
on Monday afternoon, October 2.
According to Madison Fire and Rescue Fire
Inspector Archie Strickland, the fire department
received the initial call at 2 p.m. and arrived on
the scene at 2:07 p.m.
Strickland said that the structure was a dou-.
blewide mobile home, which was both owned
and occupied by Lonnie Jennings.

Fire Chief Alfred Martin said that firefight-
ers remained on the scene for almost three-and-
a-half hours battling the blaze.
The cause of the fire, which totally de-
stroyed the home, is still under investigation by
the State Fire Marshal's office.
'The fire reignited briefly on Tuesday morn-
ing, October 3, and firefighters responded to the
scene to contain it.

"National Newspaper Week" Recognizes The

Value Newspapers Play In Our Great Nation

f4 4

We cover your life.

With The Publisher
Mary Ellen Greene

This week, October 1 7, is National Newspaper Week.
The first week of October recognizes newspapers,-and the
important part they play in America's history.
Thomas Jefferson said it best when he was quoted in a
speech, "Were it left to me to decide whether we should have
government without newspapers, or newspapers without gov-
ernment, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter."
And, Arthur Miller is quoted as having said, "A good news-
paper is a nation talking to itself."
But, it was Will Rogers who said, "Well, all I know is what
I read in the papers."
When the 01' Publisher and, I started our first newspaper,
the Madison County Carrier, in 1964, we jumped into a busi-
ness that we knew "nothing". about. We were young, (24 yrs.
old), had never worked for a newspaper, but decided to open
one when we couldn't think of any other business to go in to.
Wow!! We were in for years of fun, hard work, dedication,
exciting times, and a ride we still enjoy today. We taught our
three children Harvey, William and Emerald every aspect of,
the business, and we all worked together to make it a success.
It was Alexander Graham Bell who said, "America is a
country of inventors, and the greatest of inventors are the news-
paper men."
But, it was Herbert Bayard Swope who added, "The first
duty of a newspaper is to be accurate. If it be accurate, it fol-
lows that it is fair."
I took all of "one" journalism course at the University of
Florida when I got my degree in English, Speech, and Journal-
ism, from 1957-61. I had the greatest teacher in the world as my
mentor, Hugh Cunningham, who today still edits., and writes for
the Gainesville area newspapers.
He told us that there were three rules of journalism: accu-
racy. accuracy, and accuracy. .
Later, when the 01' Publisher and I became the President
and First Lady of the Florida Press Association (way back in
1971-72), we began a series -of workshops all over Florida for
jurnalitsftb oome !ogether ani dikcu_,_, their ideas', problems,
.and changes v. hen \\ e allentered the world of "off-et" jdurnal-
ism, as opposed to the older way of "letterpress." We asked
Cunningham to come to our workshops and critique our news-

papers and, he did. We learned so much during those first few
years about how to, and how how not to run a newspaper.
We are proud that our daughter, Emerald, and our daughter-
in-law, Lisa, enjoy the newspaper world, and are doing such a
good job "carrying the banner" on into the era of computerized
journalism. They still adhere to the words of Arthur Sulzberg,
Jr., though, who proclaimed: "Newspapers cannot be defined by
the second word -- paper. They've got to be defined by the first
word -- news."
This week, I'd like to send Happy Birthday wishes to our
grandson, Matthew JohnDeere Greene, and to our son-in-law,
Paul Maurice Kinsley.
May you have many, many more.

Letters to the Editor are typed word for word,
comma for comma, as sent to this newspaper.


The individual ballot is the very heart of our governments
direction. Anyone who thinks individual, votes doesn't make
any difference should consider the following analysis of at least
three Presidential elections since World War II: '1948-Less than
one vote per precinct in two strategic states made the difference
between Harry S. Truman and Thomas E. Dewey. 1960-Less
than one vote per precinct made the difference between John F.
Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon. 1968-Between three and four
votes per precinct made the difference between Richard M.
Nixon and Hubert H. Humphrey. The democracy we enjoy to-
day was bought with the blood and sacrifice, of our forefathers.
This precious heritage has been. preserved with the blood and
sacrifices of succeeding generations of Americans. .But it can
be lost if a great portion of the N outing public continues to say,
"What good does it do to vote?". America is admired the world
over as, a model system of democracy, with the RIGHT TO
VOTE paramount for all its freedoms. Yet, the people of Amer-
ica have one of the poorest voting percentages in the 'world.
This \-ear lets beat the odd.- Register and then be sure to vote.
Just remember; Bad politicians are elected by good citizens who
fail to vote.

market value. Therefore, the amount.of time one has owned,
the property does not exempt it from assessment increases if re-
cent .sales of similar, surrounding properties indicate an in-
crease in its market value," she said.
The FDOR will not allow the "chasing of sales." In other
words, the Property Appraiser's office cannot adjust one prop-
erty's assessment when that property sells and not adjust the as-
sessment of similar, neighboring properties accordingly. .
"The Madison County Property Appraiser's Office is not
trying to curb growth or tax anyone out of their property,"
Barfield said. "We recognize the hardship that increased as-
sessments are having on some; but our office is simply follow-
ing the policies and rules we are directed to follow. If we do
not, Madison County's tax roll would not be approved. One can
only imagine the problems that would cause,"
Barfield asks that property .owner's .keep in mind that the
appraiser's office sets the value and the local taxing authorities
set the millage rates rates that could have been reduced and
still- provide additional revenue to the county due to the. in-
crease in Madison County tax base.
Local taxing authorities include Madison County, the
Madison County School District, the Suwannee River Water
Management District, the-Town of Lee, the Town of Greenville
and the City of Madison..
Under the Madison County budget, the County Commis-
sioners' salaries are placed, along with those of county em-
ployees, including the Solid Waste, the Public Works Depart-
ment, Emergency Management and Madison County EMS. Al-
though the constitutional offices operate under their own bud-
gets, the tax base still. comes from the county's ad valorem
(property) taxes. The only.exception in this is the Judge's of-
fice, which is underthe state, and the School Superintendent's.
office, which falls under the Madison County School District.
Services rendered include law enforcement, court proceed-
ings and emergency medical care.
The county's special assessments help pay a portion of fire
protection and for waste disposal.
.Due to the increase in property value, the millage has
dropped significantly for the first time in almost 20 years to
9.25 mills.

Taxes for the City of Madison pay administrative costs, for
law enforcement protection, for fire protection and for public
works costs.
The millage for the City of Madison remains at 7.0 mills
where it has been for a number of years; however, the City's
sewage and potable drinking water rates have gone up, mainly
because of the loss of Smithfield, which provided the city with
an additional $669,000 annual income stream.
The city had also agreed to .upgrade its wastewater treat-
ment facility and had to borrow millions of dollars with the un-
derstanding that Smithfield would be around for years to come.
Smithfield left the town and put restrictions on who. the plant
could be sold to.
The Town of Lee's budget is spent on administrative costs,
paying a handful of city employees, maintenance of roads, city
parks and controlling its potable drinking water. The city has
extended its boundaries almost to the interstate on Highway
255 South, to the Putnal property on U.S. 90 West, and east to
the Corinth Church Road area on SE Farm Road. The increase
in acreage for the town's city limits has not only increased its
population, but also increased its taxable land value.
The Town of Lee, along with the Town of Greenville, had
requested increased police presence within its city limits since
' they no longer have police forces. Sheriff Pete Bucher had re-
quested four new deputies for the whole county, citing that he
could not request deputies for any one specific area of the coun-
The county commission granted Bucher two part-time
deputies, who will begin on April 1, 2007.,
The Town of Lee's millage is set at 6.67 mills, where it has
remained for 16 years.
The Town of Greenville spends their tax dollars on city wa-
ter, city roads, city sewer, employee salaries and maintenance
of their public works departments and parks.
The town's millage is set at 9.21 for 2007.

The Diligent
The subject of immigration has certainly been a hot topic
this year. It leads to some important questions that all too often
are overlooked in the heat of debate. .What are the factors that
cause someone to leave their homeland and venture into a new
and strange culture?. What obstacles do the immigrants face in
their quest?
Sometimes, the answers are revealed in the lessons of his-
tory., The immigration story I know best happened nearly four
centuries ago. It is a family story, but perhaps it is 'typical of the
. times and has relevant lessons to contemporary problems.
The year is 1638 and the scene is a village in southeastern
England about the size of Greenville. The town is called Hing-
ham in the county of Norfolk. Beginning two years earlier, an
emnigLraion has begun that over the six year period of 1636-42
will iend about one-third of the village to the new world.
There is some indication that religious freedom was the
principle motivation of these simple country folk to leave their
familiar life for the unkno0 ii. Economics may have played a
role as well; the lure of new lands unfettered by title and noble
birth may have provided the spark for these people to risk so
One of these emigrants was a shoemaker in his mid-30s
named Henry Chamberlin. Henry was the. head of a household
of fi'- e that included his mother Christian, wife and two sons,
Henry'arind John who were probably\ both younger than ten.
They arrived in the Suffolk port of Ipswich in June with'about a
hundred other neighbors from Hingham \k ith names like Peck,
Gilman, Gates, Cuishing, Sutton, and Ripley. In most-cases,
,these were the first people with these surnames to find their way
Sto America.
This contingent of travelers boarded the Diligent, captained
by John Martin. The quarters on this 17th Century wooden sail-
ing vessel had to be very-tight and sparse for the twenty odd
families and other single men making this voyage. All of their
worldly possessions that would fit were contained in this ship.
The voyage of the Diligent lasted about two months across .
the North Atlantic. They averaged about 2 miles per hour to
cross the three thousand mile distance. Summer was chosen to
lessen the danger from,stormsn. They arrived off the cast of
MasaichLisets on Auu,:t I0 to complete their journe.
ni w.man did not lite ,t complete thejo.unie ? What ill-
nesses plagued these people? What did their diet consist of?
How did the children and elderly faire on this difficult journey?
How did they occupy their time on the voyage? The answers to
these questions and others have been lost to the ravages of time;
instead,, we are left to wonder and speculate. Suffice it to say
that the challenges and risk were enormous.
As was frequently the case, the settlers from Hingham in
the old world named their home in the new world Hingham
also. Today, you can locate Hingham, Massachusetts in your at-
las just to the southeast of Boston.
Some of these families like the Cushing's stayed in Hing-
ham and can be found there today, fifteen generations later. The
Chamberlins moved on aftei about a. half century. I eu-
phemistically say that the Chamberlin family left Massachusetts
about the same time as the Salem witchcraft trials, but I have no
reason to believe there was any connection between these
events. They moved south to New Jersey and,.after two hun-
dred years, they had reached the southwestern part of Ohio. In
the aftermath of the Civil War, two of Henry's descendents ar-
rived in Kansas. One of these fellows was a war veteran by the
name of Lewis Chamberlin who would become my great-grand-
Back to the Diligent, one of the families aboard was a small
group of three led by Stephen Lincoln. Five generations later
on the frontier of Kentucky, a descendent would be born and
given the Biblical name of Abraham. He would go on to be-
come our nation's 16th president and .change history.
I'm not sure whether or not the story of the Diligent and her
human cargo holds any great lessons to our 21st Century immi-
gration dilemma, however it helps to put the' current situation
into historical perspective. By learning from the past, we can
better understand the present and gain greater insight into what
the future might hold.

On Wednesday, September 27, the Rotary Club warmly re-
ceived Rebecca Miller, a new 4-H agent for Madison County as
their guest speaker.
Many people know Miller from her smiling face, to her
helping kids, or being a former teacher, and being Lou Miller's
daughter. Lou arranged Wednesday's presentation .
Rebecca Miller enjoys being a 4-H agent because she likes
teaching kids how to plant, sew, raise animals and learn signif-
icant life skills. That is what 4-H is all about.
4-H stands for head, heart, hands and health. There are sev-
en 4-H clubs throughout Madison County and each one of them
give back to the community.
Miller stated, "I know about. children, I work with them
and teach them life skills. All of our 4-H kids are great, but not
all come in that way. We at the Madison County Extension Of-
fice make sure that they leave with. a feeling of value and self-
It is her mission to bring 4-H to students in the communi-
Though, the parents who do bring their children to the of-
fice, are very support\ e of all the programs. .

School (MCCS) and more.
"Spending just a little bit of time with children really does
make a big difference," said Miller.
At the meeting, she handed out a survey that was. conduct-
ed .named, "Grading grown-ups." The survey asked 1,425
American adults what they believe is important and what spe-
cific actions adults actually do on behalf of young people.'
Ninety percent of adults believe that encouraging success in
school is important and only 69 percent of adults actually en-
force it.
Sixty-five percent of adults feel that reporting positive be-
havior is significant while only twenty-two percent of adults
make sure that they know that actual. progress Of their child's
According to Miller, more adults are getting.busy, wrap-
ping themselves up in their jobs and not paying as' much at-
tention as they should to their child or'children.
Miller keyed in on the many different ways that people in
the community can help 4-H. People can donate canned sup-
plies, strainers, contribute to animal projects, donate new or
used archery equipment, baking ingredients, gardening tools,
sponsor a "Child for Congress," or a 4-H camp, and most im-
portantl%. donate. time. talent. or a skill, one time a month.

The steps to becoming a
leader are simple. The volun-
teer fills out an application
and goes through a back-
ground check. After the back-
ground check clears, the coun-
cil provides training to teach
the volunteers how to get

started, plan meetings, man-
age 'troop finances and girl re-
The leaders then have
four minonths to complete three

Five Things
Every Investor Should Know

Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones

Is. there a magic formula for achieving in% estmnent
success? Not really though you wouldn't knot it bN
reading all the advertisements touting "surefire win-
ners." The truth is that there are few valid guarantees in
-the investment -world.
However, once you learn to ignore all the exagger-
ated claims you might encounter. \ou can actually do
quite a lot to become a more successful minestor. Here
are five things all good investors should know:
Patience is a big asset. Stock prices will al\\ a\ s go
up and down. The best investors overlook these short-
term price swings and don't. head to the investment
"sidelines" when times are tough. Of course, this is eas-
ier said than. done especially when the political and
economic news.of the day is bad and the financial mar-
kets seem rattled. Yet, history is full of wars, crises and
scandals and not one of them has. permanently harmed
the outlook for investments. In fact, after the initial
shock of the event has worn off, financial markets have
often recovered lost ground in a matter of months and
then gone on to new heights. Of course, past perform-
ance is not a guarantee of any future results.
All investments carry' risk. Everyone knows that
stocks can lose value. But too many people don't realize
that all investments carry. some type of risk. For exam-
ple, bonds and Certificates of Deposit (CDs) may offer
substantial protection of principal, so they might be
considered "safe." And yet, these same vehicles may
provide returns that fail to'keep up with inflation, which
means they carry purchasing power risk. It's not the
same risk as that incurred by stocks, but it's a risk
nonetheless and it's something to be aware of if you
are counting on your investments to provide you with
some of your cash flow.
Expenses can reduce returns. Obviously, you
would like your investments to provide you with .good
returns.. But don't focus on.returns to the exclusion of all
other factors such as investment expenses. The costs of
investing can significantly erode your investment
returns. So, for instance, if you are constantly buying
and selling stocks in hopes of turning quick profits, you
will likely run up against taxes and other costs that can
turn potentially big gains into something else. You are
likely to do much better by purchasing quality invest-
ments and holding them for the long term, or until your
needs change.
Knowledge is power. Some people aren't really sure
what they are investing in and that can lead to a vari-
ety of problems. For example, they might invest in
almost exactly the same vehicles inside and outside
their 401(k) plan, which could lead to an over-concen-
tration of assets in a particular area leaving them vul-
nerable to a downturn affecting that one asset class. The
more you know about your investments, the less likely
you are to face unpleasant surprises down the road.
Professional expertise is valuable. Work with an
investment professional who knows your needs and
who will work with you one-on-one to create a person-
alized strategy.

So, there you have it five things every investor should
know. Put this knowledge to work in helping you
achieve your goals.

MCMH Finds Ways To Make Repairs, Replace Equipment

By Ginger Jarvis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
In a session filled with
good news, the Madison
County Memorial Hospital
Trustees. took some positive
steps' on September 21.
Among those steps were roof
repair at a savings of about
$15,000, a grant to help re-
place aged equipment in the
Radiology Department, and
two low-interest loans to help

cut the accounts payable.
The roofing should be
completed in about a week,
according to Maintenance
Supervisor Gary Mack. Us-
ing a new type of material,
the Glenn Buchanan Compa-
ny will cover the 17,000
square-foot roof with a coat-
ing product and seal around
the edges at a cost of just
over $29,000. The previous-
ly-considered plan would

have covered 3,000 sq. ft. at
an estimate, of $47,000 plus
the cost of renting a crane for
week to hold up the air con-
ditioner and then the cost of
reinstalling the a/c. Hospital
Administrator David Aber-
crombie said, "We simply
could not afford that, and we
could not do without our air
conditioner for a week."
The soon-to-be complet-
ed work will address leaks
that have plagued the hospi-

tal for over a year.
Administrative Assistant
Tammy Stephens told the
board that it would take
about $13,000 to replace the
old mammography developer
in Radiology. "It will take
about 40 days to receive and
install," she said. "We have a
grant to pay for it;" The
board unanimously approved
the installation of hew equip-
I Abercrombie explained

that MCMH can get two
loans at three percent interest
to be paid over a short term.
"The one for $300,000 we
can use to bring our accounts
payable from $525, 000," he
stated. The other would help"
the hospital .switch to elec-
tronic bill pay and other sys-
tems which will reduce costs.
The board unanimously
approved taking out the two
In other matters, Chief

Financial Officer Deena
Hames reported that the hos-
pital is owed about $4.4 mil-
lion. She suggested that
MCMH offer a discount to
private-pay patients who pay
their bills quickly.
The board approved the
hiring ofPh\ llis Bouchelle of
Jacksonville to continue her
work as the CPA. Hames
said, "We are quite satisfied.
We get our money's worth
out of her."

"We have kids and.adults coming in here trying to borrow a

enough to go around."
In fact, while this reporter was interviewing Register's class,

Register said she uses The Madison Enterprise-Recorder
and the Madison County Carrier to teach her reading class, be-
cause the news in the paper is local. "It's fresh material," Regis-
ter said. "It's also high interest because it is local, and the issues
in thepaper affect them."
Register added that when they. read about Dixie Packers
closing down, some of the students were close to tears because
their parents worked in the plaiu. "But I told them, look for the
bright spot in the story," Register said. "Then they read that
Smithfield could be coming. And then of course, Snithfield
came and closed down too. ,

The students .unanimously agreed that their favorite section
of the Carrier and the Enterprise Recorder is the sports section.
The also said they read the front page and look at all the pictures.
"I liked the story .about the horses," Niaisha Taylor said. "I
read the front page."
"I read the sports," football player Robert Brown said. "I like
reading our game story."
"I read the front page and I liked the one you wrote about the
horses," Bryan Vought said.
Dara Howell said, "I read everything. I like the pictures too.
I always read the captions."
"I read the sports section,". Jordan Wesson said. "I like the

Dear Citizens of Madison County,
It has been a great blessing to have the honor of working with Madison County's chiil-:i
dren. Smiling faces, eager hands, loving hearts, and warm embraces make this job one ofN
the best in the world. 4-H allows children to learn about every aspect of life, through their :
head, heart, hands, and health. Preparing children for their future is our main goal. Con-
,sumer Sciencp and, Agriculture projects help children develop life skills that male produc- ,.
tive citizens. 4-H allows children tp learn about the world by exploring, observing, creating,
and decision making. Children have the opportunity to be exposed to new experiences.
Through 4-H, children often realize their time and talent contribute to a better community. .
4-H involves the community in projects and in outreach programs. All 4-Hers must partici-
pate in community service programs. In return for our small gifts of service, the communi-
ty readily opens its arms and gives back a wealth of knowledge, time, and talents to the.
children. Our community realizes that it takes a group effort to raise children.
.I personally was blessed with two wonderful parents. However, I am a product of a
community effort. There were several wonderful teachers who spent several hours trying A
to empower me. Church members, pastors, store owners, babysitters, town workers, and
good neighbors all took time to add something to enrich my life. I am so very thankful for,'
those people spending time when they didn't have to. Therefore, I am going to try to do the ,
same thing. I want to give the children of Madison County the same opportunities I was&4
given. Madison County is a great place to live with even greater people. Hopefully, this .f
week as we celebrate National 4-H Week, you will decide to join in with us as we strive to H
enrich children's lives. Join a club. Help a child. Give because you have been given.

Thank you for your support,

had enjoyed a rewarding career
in 4-H and wanted to get to-

Has your "get up and go"
got up and gone? You may
even be taking .vitamins and
minerals and not seeing much
of a difference. What .you
need to look at is whether
your nutrients are being ab-
sorbed, or not. The truth is, if
you have an unhealthy, slug-
gish colon then your nutrients
.will not be absorbed because
they are blocked by mucus
lining the colon and your di-
gestive trait. Mucus is made
to protect the blood from tox-
ins. If we absorbed these tox-
ins we would be too sick.
Every minute the blood is
absorbing water from the
colon to form the stool and re-
hydrate the blood. When tox-
ins are present, the body, in its
infinite wisdom, will make
mucus to 'protect the blood so
those toxins cannot be ab-
sorbed. This mucus coating
also 'causes nutritional defi-

ciencies because the body
can't absorb the vitamins and
minerals. We become less
energetic and then become
sick with diseases. As Dr.
Bernard Jensen puts it, "Every
tissue is fed by the blood,
which is supplied by the bow-
el. When the bowel is dirty,
the blood is dirty and so on to
the organs and .tissues." So,
those unhealthy toxins in your
colon will also be found in
other areas of your body.
With antibiotics, the good
bacteria are killed off along
with the bad bacteria, so.it is
important to replenish the'
good flora in the colon. After
a course of antibiotics you
should take a course of PRO-
biotcs. When your colon' is,
working correctly you will
have the biological terrain for
assimilation of vitamins pro-
teins, fats, carbohydrates and

Inflammatory Breast
Cancer (IBC) is a type of
breast cancer in which the
breast looks red and swollen,

,m The Front Porch Sizing Up

Change Of Seasons
The change of seasons has a profound effect on residents liv-
ing in a nursing home. Indian summers leave residents in a lethar-
gic state, after enduring the heat day after day. Autumn seems to in-
fuse the residents with a newfound industrious attitude.
With the change in fall, residents seem to.be more interested,
energetic, and enthusiastic. The brisk mornings will find folks sit-
ting on the front porch or in the courtyard, savoring the cool, crisp
air, and listening to the blue jays.
Conversations will abound with the delights of the "fun" month
of October; which generally is centered toward harvest time and
children. Just pull up a chair on the porch with a resident, with a
cool breeze ruffling the leaves, and suddenly they are remembering
a story of the fall season.
The cooler days bring a flurry of activities in the nursing home,
summer clothes are packed, away, and sweaters are. brought out.,
The shorter the days become the higher the energy levels increase
with the residents. Residents cheerfully volunteer to assist with fall
decorating, sprucing up the yards, and.painting. Suddenly the resi-
dents are interested in planning the menu. .The aroma of homemade
.soup, chili, and baked cookies, have the residents scurrying into the
dining room.
Residents also find themselves eager to plan fall activities for
.the children. The residents are delighted to make crafts that the
children will enjoy. The excitement builds as plans are made, to
open their home to all of the Halloween visitors.
The season of Autumn brings a harvest to all. Residents of a
nursing home are no exception; they have a lifetime of wisdom to
harvest, and they are eager to share with everyone.
"The ignorant man marvels at the exceptional; the wise man
marvels at the common; the greatest wonder of all is the regularity
.of nature"
-George DanaBoardman

Maintaining Friendships

Through Serious Illness
How can you help a friend who has a serious illness?
While family members typically provide the emotional support,
friends are important too. Some people pull away from friends who are ill.
It's not that they.don't care, but often they don't know what to say. The May

Gauge conversation to your friend's condition. Sometimes a visit can
be as simple as listening. Quiet time together is a form of companionship
that good friends can share. Or, talk about things you have in common. If
the situation warrants, seek out your friend's advice or opinion. Your friend
needs to feel valued and able to contribute to the relationship. And don't be
surprised if your friend is tired of talking about illness. ,
The person who's sick may, tend to push away those who want to help,
not wanting to burden the friendship. As a friend, you'll need to find the del-
icate balance between the space your ill friend'needs and his or her emotion-
al need for closeness. Achieving the-balance can enrich both of your lives.

"We made some mistakes
early," Coach Mike Coe said
,after the Taylor County game.
Two of those mistakes were
interceptions. One of those in-
terceptions was clearly dual,
possession and the rules state
the offense gets the ball .in
those cases, but Taylor Coun-
ty was awarded the ball.and.
Madison had to go on de-
fense. "On film. we could see
we came down with the ball,"
Coe said.
Defensive coordinator
Rod Williams said, "We went
to sleep a couple of times and
it cost us once.. But we did
pretty good."
Even though Madison
made some- mistakes, the' end
result was the Cowboys clob-
bered Taylor Co. 40-7.
The game got off to a
rough start with the two inter-
ceptions taking place in the
first quarter. Both Andrew
Edwards and Travis Arnold
scored for the. Cowboys in the
first quarter and Taylor came
up empty. Both PATs- by

only TD of the game by the

the kick-off and ran 48 yards
to give the Cowboys great
field position. Edwards car-.
ried for 20 yards, followed by,
. a short run by Corey Akins to

and a host 'of other Cowboy
running backs to carry .the
load. The snap was bad for the
PAT and Taylor blocked the*
kick. The score went to 20-7.
Taylor fumbled -on the
first play of their next series
and fumbled on the second
play. The Bulldogs recovered
both fumbles but gained little
yardage, and had. to punt.

tion on their own 44. A Blake

Broncos Lose A Hair-Raising Game To

Lake City Middle in Double Overtime

The Final Score Was 16-14, Lake City Middle

By Janet. Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The MCCS Broncos lost a
heck of a game to. Lake City
Middle School after TWO pe-
riods of overtime. "It was a
great game," coach Mike Ra-
gans said.
The score was 0-0 after
regulation play. According to
Ragans, Lake City Middle
School only crossed the 50-
yard line one time. The Bron-
co defense was awesome.
"The defense has only given
up six points all year in four
games of regulation play," Ra-
gans said.
The Broncos were in
scoring distance inside the
Lake City 30-yard line five

times. Ragans said the Bron-
cos had the ball inside the 10
at the four-yard line once and
could not score. "It was fourth
and four, and we could not get
the ball across the goal line,"'
Ragans said.
When regular time ex-
pired, the game went into
overtime. In middle-school
football, that means the ball is
placed on the 10-yard line and
each team gets four downs to
score. Madison went first. La-
padre Stevenson scored for
the Cowboys. The two-point
conversion was good and
Madison went up 8-0.
But Lake City Middle
scored as well. They also
made good on the two-point,

Inc. Photo by Janet Schrader, September 1, 2006)

conversion. The game went
into a second overtime period.
Madison was up. Bad
luck struck the Cowboys. Af-
ter two penalties, the Cow-
boys had moved backwards,
not forwards, and were on the
20-yard line. .The Cowboy
quarterback, Terry Morris,
tossed one to Marterius Mc-
Daniel in the endzone and the
Cowboys were up 14-8. The
two-point attempt failed. It
was Lake City's turn.
Lake City had a huge full-
back, way over six-feet tall.
Ragans said there was no way
to stop him from inside the,10.
Lake City scored and added
the two points to win 16-14.
The Broncos have two.
more games. October 12,
MCCS will host Taylor Coun-
ty. On October 17, the Bron-
cos travel to Baker County.
The Broncos are currently in a
four-way tie for going to the
middle school playoffs. In the
Broncos' district, Suwannee is
the only team out of the run-
ning for a playoff berth. To
make it, Madison has to beat
Taylor and Lake City Richard-
son has to beat Lake City. If
Madison loses to Taylor, or
Lake City beats 'Richardson,
Madison is out.

Cowboy Golf Drops Second Match To Taylor

By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Cowboy golf traveled to
Taylor County September 26
for a rematch and a chance to
get a little revenge for the loss

they suffered the last time
Madison hosted Taylor, Au-
gust 24. The Cowboys lost the
match, but did a lot better job
this time. In the last match
Madison lost 162-179. This

time Madison bettered their
team score by eight strokes,
and Taylor did not do as well.
The Cowboys lost 164 to 171.
Evan Schnitker was the
low medalist for the match

with a 38. Evan beat Taylor's
number-one golfer, Ryan
Hapberg, who had a 39. Trent
Ragans had a 41. Jameson
Thompson shot a 48 and Dy-
-lan Barrs rounded out the top

four Cowboy golfers with a
44. The loss sends the Cow-
boy golfers' record to 10-5.
Cowboy golf will host the
district tournament this year
at the Madison Country Club.

This is a great honor for the
Cowboys. It also gives the
Madison golfers a home-
course advantage. The'district
tournament is October 9. Tee-
offs begin at 9 a.m.

MCCS Throws Celebration For Stalnaker

By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Have you driven by
Madison County Central
School (MCCS) lately and
wondered what all of the yel-
low ribbons are doing tied at
the fence in front of the
school? The yellow ribbons
are wishes and prayers from
students that their principal,.
Sam Stalnaker will return
safely home from war.
On Wednesday, Septem-
ber 27, MCCS threw a cele-
bration party for principal,
Sam Stalnaker's departure.
In attendance, there were
seventh and eighth graders,
Sharon Nethers, Deobrah
Glee, Lou Miller, Sam Stal-
naker and his brother and his
sister-in-law and many other
MCCS staff.
The program was put on
by students to- pay their re-
spects.to Stalnaker whose last
day was Friday, September-
Michael Jones opened up

the ceremony by welcoming
everyone whom attended, the
song Star Spangled Banner
was played and Laterrian Mc-
Daniel said a prayer.
Frankie Hodge, Steven
Watts, Albert Bivens and
Jalkelby Johnson headed up
the speech for the occasion. A
presentation was given by
Courtney Williams, Katherine
Ridgon and Shakeria San-
tique both read poems.
Matthew Burnett read a quote
to the guests and "God Bless
the' U.S.A." was played.
Stalnaker made brief re-
marks. and Lou Miller, Super-
intendent of Madison County
Schools, made closing re-
Stalnaker stated, "It's
overwhelming how much of a,
strong support system I have.
This will help me do my job
at war much easier."
There was a wonderful
celebration of cake, punch
and refreshments for every-
one who attended.

Seventh and eighth grade students attended the MCCS celebration for principal, Sam Stalnaker, to show their
support for him before he departed for war. Back row, pictured left to right, Ashley Hollingsworth, Katherine Rig-
don, Tiffany Richardson, Kristine Kennedy, Mike Jones and Antonio Mitchell. Front row, pictured left to right, Eri-

MCHS Continues To Offer

Drivers Ed To Students

Aaron Bright

By Jessal\n Covell
Grit eie Publisnm _. Inc.
The Madison Counts
High School iMCHSI has
been offering drivers edu-
cation to its students for
fifty -plus years.
Dri\ers Ed requires 30
hours in the classroom and
six hours of driving on the
road \with an instructor.
Nanc\ Benjamin is the
lady that heads this pro-
gram for the high school.
She has been involved with
Drmier's Ed for approxi-
natel\ 10 years. She also
teaches Personal Fitness.
Life Management and Per-
sonal Education. She re-
placed former Dri\ers Ed
teacher. Julia Turner.
The NICHS Drixei's Ed
program has been partner-
ing with the state of Flori-
da's Di\ision of Education
Licensine Assistance Pro-
gram IDELAPi since the
l61_'s. The' hae .a con-

" aET

Amber Bishop

tract with the Department
of Motor \ vehicles iDMNI\'
for one year where Ben-
jamin submits a paper list
of which students passed or
failed on their test.
Aaron Bright, a Dri-
ver's Ed student stated,
-This class helps us learn
ho\\ to be better diixers
.and it helps lower our cost
of insurance."
The list is electronical-
1l sent to the DMV and is
processed for present and
future references.
For a leaner's permit.
students must be 15 \ears
of age and shove, pioof of
their date of birth and their
social security number.
Amber Bishop. Dri-
ver's Ed student noted. 1-I
think that Dri\er's Ed is
important to take during
high school because l'\e
learned about the dangers
of driving before I get oni
the road."

Brett Walker

If students participate
in Driver's Ed during the
school year, they can
%watch a 15-minute video at
the majority of insurance
agencies in Madison to re-
ceive a 10-20 percent re-
duction on their insurance
Brett Walker. Driver'
Ed student said. -"In Dri-
\er's Ed. Nou learn about
things \ou don't normally
learn by Nourself."
During the cliool1 Near.
there are approximately\ 25
students that attend Dri-
\er's Ed. In the summer.
there are fewer students
w ho take Dii\ers Ed, onl\
totaling 12 students.
Benjamin stated. "Dri-
ver's Ed helps gi\e stu-
dents more insight into the
rules of the remedy. It
teaches students ho, to
handle an automobile and
what to do in case of an

cations, -was set in 2004 'by

closing remarks before school,
staff and dignitaries parted

ways: "The tying of the yellow
ribbons outside the school is a
way that students have' really .
shown their support for princi-

In Madison County history, I
haven't ever recalled a princi-
pal being deployed into. action
to preserve our freedom. He
shows commitment to. the
school .and' an even. greater
commitment to our country.
Sam is a great example of what
commitment is. To students,'
staff and the community he dis-
plays personal courage, per-
sonal service and is leaving for
war to preserve our rights." .
On behalf of Madison'
County, Miller presented Stal-.

Stalnaker said, "I love the
Madison County Central

that I could work for. The stu-
dents and teachers are great. In

tend so much love to one per-
