Madison County Ponds Going Dry

By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Local ponds in Madison
County are 'drying up in.,
bunches, according to
Kevi.n Campbell .Madison
County Farm Extension
Agent. "Ponds are drying
-up all over the place,"

.Campbell said. "It is seri-
ously dry."
Campbell said the
country suffered through a
dry winter, a dry spring, a
dry summer and now it.
looks like a dry fall. That's
why ponds that were over-
flowing last -year at. this

time, are now down to little
puddles. Even folks, with
spring-fed ponds are seeing,
a marked decrease in. water
Because of all the dry-
ing ponds rumors are flying
around about local wells
going dry as well. Accord-

ing to Suwannee River Wa-
ter Management Water Well
Specialist Gloria Hancock;
wells. are in good shape in
Madison County.
"No one has reported
low water levels or wells
going, dry to me," Hancock
stated October 11.

Hancock- went on to say
farmers are not pumping
more water out of the .water
table than they need.
"Pumping costs money,"
Hancock said. "Pumping
costs fuel, and fuel is mon-
ey.. Farmers are not going to
pump any more than they

have to. They're in the
business of making money.
Farmers are our best envi-
Campbell agreed with
HancQck. "I have not heard
of anybody having prob-
lems with their wells,".
Campbell said.

Gold Kist Rejects

Pilgrim Pride's Offer
Recommends to Stockholders Not to Tender Shares at $20
a Share
Gold Kist Files Lawsuit Against P 1'0 i ,'s Over Legality
of Board Nominations
Gold Kist Inc. (NASDAQ:GKIS) announced last Thursday,
October 12, that its Board of Directors has rejected as inade-
quate Pilgrim's Pride Corporation's (NYSE:PPC) unsolicited
tender offer to acquire all outstanding shares of common stock
of Gold Kist at a price of $20.00 per share, and strongly recom-
mends that its stockholders not tender their shares. The basis for
the Board's unanimous decision is set forth in the attached letter
to stockholders and Gold Kist's Schedule 14D-9 filed today with
the Securities and Exchange Commission.
After careful consideration, the Board of Directors reached
its decision that the tender offer is not in the best interests of
stockholders. The Board consulted with its financial and legal
advisors and its Special Committee of independent directors. As
previously stated, the Board and the Special Committee remain
committed to the continuing enhancement and execution of the
Company's strategic business plan, as well as exploration of po-
tential alternatives to maximize stockholder value.
"Our Board unanimously determined that the offer is inade-
quate and does not fully reflect the value of Gold Kist, including
the Company's strong market position and future growth
prospects," said John Bekkers, Gold Kist President and CEO.

Scholarships Should Be Offered Regardless Of Race

A Note From An Old Friend.
Brings Smiles
In a person's lifetime, there are a few people whom you
mpet who impress you as friends and acquaintances who you
want to keep that way forever.
Such is a man so many of us in Madison County knew as
"our loyal friend," for many, many years, and still do.
T. C. Merchant, Jr., known to most of us as "Curry," is a
gentleman The Husband and I have known since we were young
children in Madison. He and his father owned and ran .the En-
terprise-Recorder in Madison County for many, many years.
Both men were well-educated, and had a sense of humor
that kept one laughing all the time.
This week, an envelope arrived addressed to Mr. and Mrs.
Tommie-Greene, Madison, Florida, 32340..
It was postmarked Charlotte, N. C,, and I knew immediate-
ly.it was from someone from our past who knew us when we
were young.
First of all, The Husband used to spell his name, "Tommie,"
when he was a young man. It got changed to "Tommy" more
recently, when everyone began to refer to him as most Tommy's
spell their names.
Also, back in our.past, we could all write to one another
with..no address, but just "Madison, Florida."
How thrilled I was when I opened the envelope and saw
that it was a hand-wiritten letter from the E-R's former publish-
er, T. C. Merchant, Jr., who was a mentor for The Husband and
me when we first started out Carrier newspaper on Aug. 5,
We opened in the same small town of Madison as the En-
terprise-Recorder, where the Merchant family had the only
newspaper in town, since the 1800's, up until that point.
Most people who have competitors open against them, be-
come mad, catty, unforgi ing., or upset. But,'not. Curry. He, in-
stead, offered us'his assistance at any time, and told us he was
glad to have us as fellow journalists.
What a blessing this was to the two of us, who were just two,
young kids of 24-years, not knowing what we were doing, but
had just jumped into a.profession head-on without any experi-
ence what-so-ever.
S.i Curry., :as.truie.to..his \ord, and helped us- in an \ a\ Ilhe
could. We,'ii turii, offered him stories and pictures if he need-
'edthem. "
The t\\o ne\\ paper men even joined hands'at one time to
help defeat a state representative they thought should be defeat-
ed, and that particular ,entleman owned ja 1esipaper in Perry,
himself. He\\ rote about the mt o Madison publisiei.s, and called
.them "skunks."
What did Tommy and Curry do?
'They took a picture of themselves, together, with skunk
hats on, and ran them in the newspapers as "Madison's Two
We miss seeing Curry and talking to him occasionally since
he moved to North Carolina. But, we were so thrilled to get his
note this week, which read:

"Dear Mary Ellen and Tommie,
I was pleased to see Harvey's picture in the Carrier re-
cently, as he was preparing to go to Iraq, and I sincerely wish
him a successful and safe Tour of Duty.
"My young cousin from Melbourne, Fla., spent 8 months in,
Baghdad and other places and is now back in college in Vir-
ginia. His unit may be called up again, I'm informed.
"I join you and thousands of others in praying for their safe

Curry, Tommy and I thank you so very much for your let-
ter, and we think of you often, and wonder how you are.
We will keep your cousin in our prayers, as well, as we will
every young man or woman in the armed forces helping in Op-
eration Iraq, or at any assignment of duty.
Your thoughtfulness in writing to us touches our entire fam-
ily, and we just want you to know how much we love you, re-

Please keep in touch, and please write to us, anytime.

According to the October 13, 2006 Enterprise Recorder,
NFCC is offering a scholarship available only to African-Amer-
ican students. Are there any scholarships available only for stu-
dents who are white? Could we publish this in the newspaper,
."Scholarship to be Awarded to a .White Student Only." Of
course not. That would be. racist.
Here's a question: If I were a college, and offered a schol-
arship only to white students, what would happen? Here's what
would happen: .1 would be branded a racist and before I could.
even blink, the NAACP would be all'over it, telling me I was a

racist, and I was discriminating against African-Americans.
A scholarship should be awarded to those who have earned .
it, not just awarded on the basis of race or color. If people wish
to be treated equally, shouldn't it start somewhere? The double
standard needs to stop. Don't holler racism and discrimination -
and then turn around and offer someone something but "only if
they are African-American," because that makes you a hyp.-

Discrimination Is Discrimination

No Matter Your Culture

Dear Editor,
I'm commenting on the article I read in the October 13, 2 06,
Enterprise Recorder. This article was about Alfred Martin set-
ting up a scholarship fund in honor of his grandparents. This
scholarship is to be awarded to African/American students who
live.in district four.
Did I miss something? is this not blatant discrimination? Is
it O.K. to discriminate as long as on are black" Isn't NFCC a
public school? We white folks already raise an eyebrow -around
here when the "Black Miss' Madison" competition. comes
around. I can only imagine what would happen if we had. a
white e liss Madison "" competition. -
Don't get me wrong, I would not support a "White Miss
.Madison" competition any more than I support the."Black Miss
Madison." Nor do I support the idea of an individual stipulating
the race of the recipient to their donation to a public school. I

don't support .these concepts I protest them. I protest them be-
cause they aren't right Dikcrimination is discrimination no .
matter your culture, your history, your personal preference or
your justification.
I would like to ask Mr. Morris Steen. president of NFCC, If
"I were to walk into 3 our office %\ ith a check and stipulatedd I only
wanted a white person from Lovett to benefit from this money,
.would you accept it"'I would hope not. but I would like to kno\\
your answer. Please educate us all, Mr Steen. Respond in kind
with a Letter to the Editor. Help us all understand.
It's a sw eet idea. Mr. Martin. to honor \our grandparents. but

The Board of Directors
believes the Company's strate-

Gold Kist are built upon sound
corporate governance princi-
ples.. The Board also believes
that current management and
Board of Directors are unique-

to continuing to explore alter-

that Pilgrim's recognizes the

"The Board will continue

Act, which prohibits officers
and directors of companies of a
certain size from sitting on the
board of directors of a com-

enjoin Pilgrim's efforts to elect
its nominees in violation of the
Clayton Act. The lawsuit also
alleges violations of the Secu-
rities and Exchange Commis-
sion's proxy and tender offer
rules by Pilgrim's for failing to
disclose to our stockholders
that the election of the, Pil-
grim's nominees would violate
the Clai ton Act. The com-

"The Gold Kist Board be-
lieves that it is critical that its
stockholders receive full and
fair disclosure about Pilgrim's

the election of its directors
should be in compliance- with

Korean Nukes
After a week of sordid news, the event which pushed the
Mark Foley story off the front page of was North Korea: did they
or did they not conduct a successful nuclear weapons test? The
latest intelligence appears to support that they did explode a small
scale nuclear device. Is the United States powerless to stop this
It would appear that we are unable to stop Kim Jung 11 from
Se\ entuall1 developing what he so desperately desires a nuclear-
tipped missile with intercontinental range. 'The Chinese may be
able to put. the brakes on this rogue or the North Koreans may
botch the job on their own, but because the North holds South Ko-
rea's capital of Seoul and five million people hostage, we appear
to be unable to.stbp the North's ambitions on our own.
Now, who are. the- actors in this play? Center stage is North
Korea, a Stalinist dictatorship with about 21 million people living
in conditions of starvation and brutal repression. They are at the
top of the Korean peninsula, with water on either side. Their
-northern border is shared with China while they're southern
- neighbor is South Korea. The two Koreas, split after World War
II and contested since 1950, are as different literally as night and
day. There is a photograph circulating on the internet taken from.
deep space which shows the entire peninsula at night. The south
is bathed in light as electricity makes possible the economy and
conveniences of modern life. In contrast, the entire north is
blacked-out with the exception of one tiny pin-prick of light where
"The Dear Leader" as*Kim calls himself is housed in palatial com-
fort. The gross domestic product of South Korea is twenty times
(20x) their northern cousin and nearly all of North Korea's GDP
is dedicated to the military. It is truly sad..
China to the north-is one of the world's largest and richest na-
tions. Home to mpre than a billion people, the Chinese economy
is .booming. The Chinese communists have the capacity to shut
down North Korea at any time they desire. Russia's Kamchatka
peninsula is in-the northeastern part of the theater. Normally it
would not be worth comment except for the fact that it is part of
Russia and they are a major international force. To the east and
south of Korea lies Japan which of course is an economic and in-
dustrial power house. The United States has been a regional part-
ner in northeast Asia ever since the end of World War II and the
subsequent Korean War.
.Let's spend a few moments thinking about the motives of
these actors. North Korea sa\s the. %%ant nuclear-tipped missiles
as a deterrent against attack from her :-hostile" neighbors. Here is
my question: who would want to attack North Korea? Given all
of the problems we have encountered in Iraq, who v\ would be will-
ing to take on all the woes of North Korea no matter how badly
we feel for her suffering people? North Korea has nothing, noth-
ing of value that anyone else would want to take. Allies Russia
and China certainly won't attack and Japan and South Korea are
peaceful enough.
In 1972 my first assignment- out of flight school was to Kun-
san Air Base on Korea's west coast. My assignment was side-
tracked by the war in Southeast Asia, but from October through
March 1973, I was a combat-ready aviator in Korea. All of .our
war plans were defensive in nature. We were there with about
50,000 Army and Air Force personnel to deter the North from at-
tacking South Korea. We had no contingencies to go north unless
North Korea launched an attack first. I'm proud to say, we were
successful in that mission and remain so today.
South Korea would like to see a nuclear-free peninsula and
peaceful relations with the North. They have no desire to attack
other Korean people which only makes sense. China wants the
status quo. They want North Korea to survive, act as a buffer, and
to keep destitute Koreans from immigrating to China. For that
reason, they now appear to be constructing a wall along their com-
mon border sound familiar?
If anyone is to put brakes on Kim and his blind ambition, it
has to be China. It would appear that the United Nations has
agreed to some sort of sanctions which may help us damp down
-the risk of proliferation, particularly to terrorists and other rogue
* states.
In the meantime, we can minimize the threat of an attack with
our theater missile defense capability. Furthermore, we can offer
nuclear weapons technology to either Japan and/or Taiwan so they
might deter North Korea. Now that would really cause China to

Marintha P.
Howard went to be ,
with her Lord on
Friday, October 13,
2006, in Jack-
sonville, Florida. "
She was born on
February 26, 1911
in Madison County. i
Her parents were W.
H. Phillips and
Tempie Phillips.
She was the _z
youngest of seven SiS J l
children, including Burt Phillips, Mary Lee
Dryden, Willie Phillips, Mattie Whigham, S.L.
Phillips and John Henry Phillips. Mrs. Howard
married Norman .Howard, a native of
Louisiana., She is survived by two daughters:
Caroline Hamrick (Paul) and Sandy Faulk
(Nels), four grandchildren; Michelle Baker,:
Doug Hamrick, Randi Faulk and Lezli Jones;
seven great-grandchildren, Katie and Kelli
Baker, Lauren and Logan Faulk. Alexander. and'
Zachary Berglund. Additionally, she is sur-
vived by numerous nieces, nephews, relatives
Mrs. Marintha was best known as "Mema,"
not only to her family, but also to many of her
friends and relatives in Lee and the surrounding
area. Although she moved to Jacksonville in
2004, she always considered Lee her home.
She had many dear friends in Lee that she trea-
sured, having lived there almost all of her life.
Marintha and -Howard were married, on
June 21, 1934. They bought their home in
1949, where they lived for over 55 \ears and
raised their two girls. Life was not always easy
for her, but it was rich spiritually.. Everyone
knew Mrs. Howard as a pillar of strength for
her family. She was devoted to providing for
her family. She organized he .choel lur nci pro-
gram at Lee Elementary School, and earlier at,
Enterprise Elementary School. In addition, her
vocational life included teaching school, work-
ing as a representative for Independent Life In-
surance Company, Cherry's.Feed Store and Jor-
dan Pecans.
What first comes to mind when we remem-
ber "Mema", aside from her devotion to her
family, is her devotion to her Christian faith,
which began when she was 13 years old. As a
member of Midway Baptist Church for most of
her life she served many roles, including teach-
ing Sunday school for over 60 years. She also
served the Middle Florida Baptist Association
as Director of the women's organization and
was the area representative for five Baptist As-
sociations for the Women's Missionary Union.
Many women in the association will remember
her service in these roles.
Mrs. Howard was very diligent in making
sure what she did with her life was reflective of
the Christian, faith in which she believed so
deeply. Her first thought was always for others
first, invariably putting herself last in making
choices, whether her family, her church, or her.
neighbors were involved. She had years of ex-
perience living, both in longevity and as' a
Christian, and was self-confident in sharing her
conviction and faith.
The family received friends at T.J. Beggs
Funeral Home in Madison from 6 8 p.m. on
Monday Night, October 16. A funeral service
celebrating her life was held at Midway Baptist
Church, in Madison, at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Oc-
tober 17.

Healthy nutrition and osteo-
porosis. She informed seniors
that the disease is not only for
women, but men also. Osteo-
porosis is a bone disease where
the bones weaken from the loss
of calcium ;and they become
fragile and break easily. She
noted that 55 percent of people
the over the age of 50 are at risk
for osteoporosis.
There are over 300,000 an-
ow. nual hospitalizations due to
bone fractures in the United
ove States. Americans spend an ap-
way proximate 18 billion dollars
each year on bone fractures.

disease with no symptoms and
can be prevented if it is caught.

What Can You Expect,
If Inflation Heats Up?
Provided by Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones
Inflation has been in the. news quite a bit lately. After
years of enjoying very mild inflation rates, we may be
entering a period in which we experience more significant
price increases on a broad range of products and services.
As a consumer, you can easily see what increased inflation
might mean to you Birt will higher inflation, hurt our
in' estments ,
Before you tcan 'answer this question, you, need to be
familiar with a little monetary policy, as set by the Federal
Reserve, our nation's central bank. If the Fed believes that
we may be experiencing substantial increases in the cost of
living, it will tryto "cool off" the economy by raising short-
term interest rates. And that's just what it has done over the
past couple of years.
I. So, as you can see, there's typically a positive correla-
tion between rising inflation and higher short-term interest
rates. Now we can return to our initial inquiry: Will infla-
tion harm.your investments? Well, it depends. In the short
run, when interest rates rise, it becomes more expensive for
companies to borrow to finance their operations; conse-
quently, .their profit margins may be squeezed and their
stock prices might fall.
Yet, even in an environment-of higher inflation, there
.are reasons to be encouraged about the stock market. In the
long run, inflation allows companies to raise prices, thereby
boosting the dollar value of their sales and earnings. And
the threat of higher prices may spur people to buy sooner,
rather than later, so some consumer-oriented businesses
may actually benefit from inflation. If that happens, their
profit outlook may improve, as will their attractiveness to
In short, if you own stocks, the threat 'of inflation, by
itself, is no reason to panic. However,.you may want to look
over your portfolio with your financial professional to see if
you need to make adjustments, because different market
sectors will respond differently to higher interest rates.
Inflation: Bad news for bonds?
People can debate inflation's effect on the stock market,
but when it comes to bonds, the evidence is pretty clear. If
the Fed thinks inflation is creeping up, it will raise short-
term interest rates, and that hurts bond prices. That's
because people will not pay face value for your bonds if
newer ones are 'available with higher interest rates.
However, .most investors buy bonds for the income they
provide. So if you hold your bonds until maturity, or they
are called, you will still receive interest payments along the
way and receive your initial investment upon maturity.
There are other things you can do to help improve the
long-term outlook for your fixed-income investments. For
one thing, you can build a "bond ladder" by purchasing
bonds of varying maturities short-, intermediate- and long-
term. Once you have established a bond ladder, you are pre-
pared for both rising and falling interest rates. When rates
are rising, the proceeds from your maturing bonds can be
used to invest in new bonds at the higher levels. When mar-
ket rates are falling, you may not be able to purchase new
bonds at the previous rates, but you'll continue to benefit
from the higher rates offered by your longer-term bonds.
Review your options
Worries .over inflation are real but, in the long run,
they may be overblown. As we've seen, the Federal Reserve
is actively fighting inflation, and it has been pretty success-
ful at doing so for the past couple of decades. But in any
case, it's'not a bad idea to be prepared for inflationary pres-
sures by reviewing all your options with your financial pro-

Acne Under Fire
One very effective treatment
for chronic acne, called Levulan
photodynamic therapy, combines
laser therapy with' a topical solution
of Levulan. The photosensitizing
agent (Levulan) ia applied to the
skin about an hour before treatment.
It is activated by a specific wave-
length of. light, which "turns it on"
after it has penetrated, targeted oil
glands. Once the Levulan is activat-
ed, a chemical reaction occurs that
destroys bacteria and shrinks the oil
glands so they will produce less oil.
Mtultiple .treatments are required,
and they will likely leave skin red,'
swollen and-peeling for a few days
afterward. However, the treatment is
generally quite effective and long-
lasting. Levulan.photodynamic ther-
apy is also effective for improving
wrinkles, skin texture and pigmenta-

To accommodate the
move, which included relocat-
ing 27 pediatric patients,
Shands transformed the West
.Tower at Shands AGH into an
82-bed children's facility, now
called, Shands Children's Hos-

the ease of a more intimate and
easily navigable facility. This
will also allow us to create a
door-to-door, child and family
friendly environment for fami-

plan to expand its children's
services in May. The move is
designed to supplement the
adult healthcare services of-

Ya'll Come!! This Saturday, October 21st is the big day!
8:00 am till 2:30 pm.
Hickory Grove United Methodist Church is holding its l6th
consecutive Founder's Day Celebration. This is a great way to
spend a wonderful Fall day visiting with friends -under the
trees.and enjo\ iny life as it was in the "olden" da\. '
Experience life as our forefathers did, making butter and
sausage, cooking on wood stoves, grinding cane and making
syrup, making their baskets for storage and quilts for warmth,
and preserving. the bounty from their farms to have jams, jellies
and canned goods throughout the year. Enjoy the hearty coun-
try cooking of our pioneer ancestors chicken pileau cooked in
the wash pots, barbecued hog, collard greens and hoe-cake corn-
bread, corn-on-the-cob, and homemade biscuits and cakes'to
name just a few.
See the old farm equipment, have a slingshot made, watch
all of the various demonstrations. Buy some sausage, a whole
cake, some boiled peanuts, cracklins, or syrup to take home for
some finger-lickin' good eating later.
Sit a spell and listen to some great gospel singing and await
the arrival of the circuit-riding preacher making his appearance
riding on a mule.
Everyone at Hickory Grove and many of our friends .in the
community worklreally hard to provide a great day for you. This
year our hearts are saddened as we will be missing three of our
very special folks who have been so instrumental in our cele-
brations through the years.
Julian Andrews and. Mary Lou Buchanan were some of the
hardest workers and biggest supporters of Founder's Day. Julian
dearly loved the day, and he always looked forward to seeing the
great multitude of people that came to share "\ ith us. Since Ju-.
lian had been a true hog-farmer most of his farming life, he
made sure that we had hogs for the sausage and a pen of baby
pigs for the kids to pet. Watching Julian working with the kids,
holding a big bottle to feed the pigs, and seeing the kids get just
'as dirtn' %1 could be \. as .i a\ a delight .As long a< Julian' was
able he was alIt a\ s the first one on the scene at a workday and
the last one to leave.
Mary Lou was the driving force behind "Cousin' Mary"
Lou's Kitchen". It was her "secret family recipe" for home-
made, hot and fluffy biscuits that everyone enjoyed at Founder's
Day. You could always find her in the kitchen, with her children
helping her, working away to make biscuits fast enough to meet
the demands of the long waiting line.. When she wasn't in the
.kitchen, she was competing in, and always winning the hog-call-
ing contest,-and singing with the church choir at the closing wor-
ship service. ;
.Joyce Buchanan was our long-time church treasurer, and
she. was the "money-bag lady" for the day. When Joyce's mo-;
bility became limited, you could always find her at the booth
selling quilt or afghan tickets, cookbooks, mugs, or whatever.
With a great joy .at seeing and greeting everyone, she always
took care of our workers when we were, frantically hunting
Founder's Day is a very special part of our church outreach
to the community. The strong faith and Christian commitment
of our ancestors is something that we recognize with great pride.
Come join us on Saturday. Have fun. Sit a spell. Meet a
lot of great folks. Enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. Eat a lot.
Take home some goodies and crafts. And above all, just let the
day warm your heart.

Cowboys Scalp The Indians 35-0, Making Madison 2-0 In District Play

Coach Frankie Carroll and his Cowboys. (Photo submitted by Daniel Douglas)

By Janet Schrader,
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Cowboys opened up
on district opponent Fort
White, Friday. The Fort White
defense was tough, but the.
Cowboys wvore the smaller
team down by the fourth quiar-
ter and the Cowboy defense
contained Fort White's -offense.
The final result was a shutout
for Madison. The Cowboys de-
feated Fort White 35-0.
The win makes the Cow-
boys 6-2 for the season and 2-0
in the district. With. the 2-0
record in district play, Madison
clinched spot in the district

playoffs. If Madison beats Dix-
ie County, they win the district.
Dixie soundly trounced Taylor
County Friday night 41-10
which puts Dixie 2-0 in district
play as well.
The Cowboys came out
cracking their whips Friday
night. They lost the toss and
had to receive first. But Madi-
son made the Indians regret
their choice. Even with bad
field position after the kickoff,
the Cowboys moved the ball
swiftly and well. Chris Thomp-
son ran for a first down on. the
first play, moving the ball 20

Chris Thompson again
carried the ball all the way to
the. Indian 24 for another big
first down. Harry Reddick
came into the game with a
nine-yard gain and scored from
the 15 with 9:47 left in the first
quarter. The PAT by Daniel
Sanders was good and the Indi-
ans were looking at the begin-
ning of a long night. The Cow-
boys were up 7-0. ,
Vigo Juodelis, the Cow-
boys' -big foreign exchange
kicker, .booted the. ball away.
and powered it to the Indian
10. Travis Arnold sacked the.
Fort White quarterback -13
yards behind the line of scrim-
mage .after the 'Indians had
made their first first down.
When the Cowboys got the ball
back they struggled offensive-
ly. Blake Sapp got sacked and
Madison had to punt.
The Indians went three.
eries and ,ut in lthir ne\L Aeriesand
had to punt. They fluffed the.
snap for the punt and Madison
recovered. The Cow-
boys scored when quarterback
Blake Sapp carried the ball in.,
The PAT by Sanders was good
and the Cowboys had a 14-0
lead with 6:46 left in the half.
The Indians went three
and out in their next series after
Jacobbi McDaniel stuck his big
Cowboy hand. up and deflected
a Fort White pass. Bernard
Brinson caught the Indian punt
and called for a fair catch on
the Cowboy 44. A Sapp. to
Tony Brown pass was good for
six. yards. Then Thompson
broke .away from the crowd,
cutting back, ducking and div-

ing, allthe way to the goal line
for the third touchdown of the
.night and Thompson's. first.
With 3:39 left in the half,
Sanders kicked a good point-
after and the' score soared to
Juodelis mashed the kick-
off sending the. ball all the way
to the Indian two-yard line.
Tony Brown made a great solo
tackle, but the Indians hit their
third first down of the night.
Brown made a beautiful INT
and the officials stunned
coaches, fans and the team by
calling pass interference on
him. With the weird and un-
usual penalty, the Indians
moved the ball successfully
down field making their sixth
first down on the Cowboy 16.
With only nine seconds left in
the half, the Indians. faked a
field goal. The attempt to score
was'no good and the half end-
,ed ithli e Cowb'\ s .up 21-0.

Juoddlis kicked off to start
the second half and.then tack-
led the runner. Juodelis, a well-
grown boy over six feet tall,
was congratulated by his team-
mates. He's just learning the
American version of football,
which has become more popu-
.Jar.in Juodelis' home country
of Germany. Cowboy fans and
the team appreciate the new
addition to the roster.
The Indians were able to
make one first down on their.
first possession of the second
half. But the Cowboys sacked
the Indian's quarterback for a
huge loss of yards. The Indi-
ans had to punt. Brinson re-
turned the punt all the way to
the Indian 20, a 54-yard re-
turn. Reddick came in and ran
for a two-yard gain. Thomp-
son carried for a first down.
on the .nine. Reddick scored
with. 5:09 left in the third. The
PAT was good and Madis.on

went up 28-0.
*Fort White went three
and out on their, next series. It
was Brinsori on the punt re-
turn again, putting the.Cow-
boys on their own 47. But
Sapp got sacked again and the
Cowboys had to punt. It was
28-0 going into the fourth.
Chris Thompson carried the
ball for a 62-yard touchdown
with 7:46 left in the game.
Juodelis kicked the PAT arid
it was good. The final score
of the game was 35-0 with the,
Cowboys winning their sec-
ond district victory. Madison
still has to play Dixie County
. for the district championship.
The boys have this week off
and take on Dixie here at

The MCCS Broncos host-
ed Taylor County Thursday,
October 12, in the last game of
the season. The Broncos will
not be in the playoffs this year
because Lake City Richardson,
the only team the Broncos lost
to this year, beat Lake City
Middle. This final win puts the
Broncos .at 4-1 for the 2006
It was a defensive battle
for MCCS. Taylor had a good
offense that mixed up their
pla .s with some good passing
and a credible running game.
The Taylor defense stood
up well against the Bronco of-
tense. The Broncos scored
three touchdowns against Tay-
lor. one with each team. The
first TD was scored by the de-
lense \\hen NMarteriuis Mc-
Daniel scooped up a Taylor
fumble and scored. The second
STD of the night was scored by
LaPadre Stevenson after Madi-
son recovered yet another Tay-
lor fumble.
The last TD of the evening
was scored by special teams
when LaPadre Stevenson took
the Taylor kickoff all the way
to the house, over an 80 yard
run, for the touchdown.
The game got off to a
rough start for Taylor. The
Bulldogs fumbled on the first
play and Mike Jones recovered
for Madison.

This year has seen the re-
organization of our PTO.
Parents/Guardians have pro-
vided a sold base of support
for the school. Elected presi-
dent of our PTO was Mrs.
Deborah- Cherry. We are
looking forward to this great
relationship in support of the
total educational endeavor of
our students. We also saw the
reorganization of our school
advisory council (SAC) as
well. With the immediate
need to review, revise and
seek approval of our school
improvement plan, members
of the advisory council
jumped right in and provided
valuable input to the comple-
tion of this important docu-
ment. Elected chairman of'
the advisory group was Mr.
Ernest Bruton.
We have been blessed to
have a partnership with the
Madison Garden Club. Most
recently our students .were
fortunate to participate in a
Rain Barrel project spon-
sored by the Garden Club.
The finished project included
a brightly colored barrel with
colorful hand imprints of our
students on the outside. Lo-
cated in front of the school,
the rain barrel is a fitting
compliment to the Beautiful
Butterfly Garden project also
created and supplied by the
Garden Club. We truly thank

Bear himself. Students were
thrilled and delighted to par-

embrace a partnership with
the 4-H Extension office of
Madison. The Madison 4-H

Rounding out the spot-
light on Greenville -Elemen-
tary School is the faculty and
staff. Embracing a new ad-
ministrator has at times been
a gradual learning, and grow-
ing process. However, the
hallmark of Greenville Ele-
mentary School is the team
concept supported by every
staff member. This can-do-
will-do spirit has made the
transition of new leadership
very accommodating. Be-
cause we 'are a small commu-
nity school, several staff
members wear several or
more hats to get the job done.
Notably is Mrs. Nora Walker
our Curriculum Coordinator,
Guidance Counselor and
Reading Coach. Also, in this
can-do-will-do spirit is Mrs.
Joyce Wells our school secre-
tary, bookkeeper, part time

Since the early 1800s, Tay-

role in the Florida forestry indus-

Florida Division Of Forestry in Search Of Volunteers

The most important bene-
fit to volunteering is the im-
measurable satisfaction de-
rived from being a member of
one of Florida's finest conser-
vation, wildfire suppression
and emergency response
As a member of the Divi-
sion of Forestry's volunteer
team you may work in either a
rural or urban area or work in
an office or in the forest. We

tact the Field Unit Manager for

How to Volunteer
To volunteer you must be
at least 18 years of age, or ob-
tain written consent of your
parent or guardian. Individuals
and groups may volunteer de-.
pending on the needs of the Di-
vision. Due to the physical na-
ture of some of the volunteer
work, volunteers must have the
health and physical condition
sufficient to permit carrying
out the volunteer services with-
out jeopardizing his or her
well-being or the well-being of
others. If the volunteer activity
involves driving a state vehi-
cle, then a valid drivers license
without any serious infractions
will be required.
How Long Can I Serve
as a Volunteer?
Depending upon the type

of volunteer. service needed,
volunteer activities may be one
time events or long-term pro-
The Tangible Benefits
of Volunteer Service
Volunteering offers you
experiences that are personally
rewarding and challenging, on
the job training for certain pro-
gram areas, and consideration
of volunteer service time as of-
ficial service when evaluating
the qualifications of volunteers
who seek Career Service-em-
ployment. Where duties re-
. quire, Division of Forestry uni-
forms are provided with spe-
cially designed volunteer in-
I L.a. Yo Uwill receive official
Certificates of Appreciation for
volunteer work, signed by the
Commissioner of Agriculture
and Director of the Division of
Forestry, official service pins
and other awards for each 1000
hours of volunteer service, and
coverage against claims for in-
Volunteer Service Areas
Volunteers can help in
many ways, such as:
Campground Host
Administrative Assis-
Educational & Interpre-
tive Programs
Ecosystem Restoration
Trail Maintenance
Survey Assistance of
Threatened/Endangered Flora

& Fauna
Tree-seedling Nursery
Forestry Computer Oper-
Forest Fire Protection
Forestry Youth Academy:
Located near Inglis, Flori-
da, the Forestry Youth Acade-
my (FYA) functions as an low-
risk facility and program for
youthful offenders.
Volunteers are needed in
the following areas:
Academic tutoring

gious services

. Building trades small

Please note: In accordance
Silth the Department of Juve-
nile Justice rules, all volunteers

The Division of Forestry
has divided the state into 15
field units, with our State Of-'
fice located in Tallahassee, FL.
The Division's forestry pro-
grams are implemented by its
Field Operations staff within
these field units. The field units

are grouped into four regions,
each under a Deputy Chief of
field operations. The multi-
functional workforce of per-
Ssonnel arid equipment provides
a more responsive and compre-
hensive approach to land man-
agement and wildfire control
To contact the field unit
office responsible for programs
in Dixie, Lafayette, Madison
and Taylor Counties, call for
burn authorizations, to report a
wildfire, or to report any arson-
ist information, please call Per-
ry District Office, Florida Divi-

sion of Forestry, 618 Plantation
Road, Perry, FL 32348. Tele-
phone: 850/ 838-2299. Or

Since the 1930's, as popu-
lation increased, nearly 6 mil-
lion acres of Florida's forested
land has been converted to
other uses. With over 10 mil-
lion more people expected by
2030 the state will likely see
another two to three million
acres cleared and converted.
In 2005 through a collab-
orative effort between citizen
workshops, conservation
groups, forest industry leaders,
government agencies, forest
landowners, and others, a
comprehensive list of action
items to help ensure a success-
ful future for Florida's'forests
has been completed. After as-
sessing the current "state of
the forests", the groups de-
fined what the future of Flori-
da's forest resources should
be, studied barriers to achiev-
ing that desired condition, and'
then developed recommended
courses of action to get there.
These actions focus on the
need for a comprehensive for-
est education program; lack of
financial incentives for

landowners, lack of a diversi-
fied forest industry, better
funded public lands manage-
ment, development and sprawl
with associated fragmentation
of forests, control of non-na-
tive invasive plant species,
and the need for research and
clear forest policy in the state.

Are There Forests In

Florida's Future?

We're Planning On It!
