THURSDAY, DECEMBER26, 2013 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM VOLUME113/ISSUE51 50 14 PAGES, 1 SECTIONWakulla loses to West Gadsden/A3 CURT WILKERSONTimes CorrespondentA series of public hearings during the Dec. 17 meeting of the Gadsden County Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) brought a large number of citizens out to express concerns on a number of issues. The item of greatest debate was a proposed amendment to land development regulations. In 2007, the BoCC amended a section of the land development regulations that enabled family members to deed a minimum of 1 acre of land to other immediate family members, to be used only as a homestead property. This amendment, known as the immediate family exception, was allowed to sunset in 2008 and hadnt been used since. At the Dec. 17 meeting, many citizens addressed the board regarding a proposal to renew the family exception. The law is intended to divide land among immediate family members to live there; it doesnt work that way, said Diane Sheffield, a Quincy resident and longtime member of the planning and zonCHERI HARRISTimesWith hugs from Santa, bubbles, glitter and lots of whimsy, the sparkly side of Christmas was on display in Havana this past Saturday during the holiday festival and lawnmower parade that drew merrymakers of all ages. Face painters, inflatables, food vendors and a number of crafters were among other attractions downtown. The first-place winners of the golf cart and lawnmower parade were the Raggedy Ann and Andy lawnmower and the golf cart decorated as a castle. Other popular entries included a little girl in a toy car and, of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus in a shiny red antique Pontiac.

The city manager was subsequently arrested on an unrelated probation violation and resigned. Midway faced chaos and financial duress. To add to the citys troubles, Midways police chief was arrested and convicted of theft and misconduct in office, and was fired. All this turmoil attracted the interest of Dorothy Inman-Johnson, who came out of retirement after serving as executive director of the Capital Area Community Action Agency to take the helm as interim city manager. Throughout her career, Inman-Johnson, the former mayor of Tallahassee, has become an expert in dealing with difficult situations. From past work experience, Im used to operating in crisis mode, and I learned to handle a lot of urgent situations at the same time, said Inman-Johnson. Usually I do it without losing my cool. Her first and most urgent issue to confront in Midway was getting the city back on track financially. All of the money from 2012 and 2013 had been depleted from the general revenue fund when I took the helm, and we were holding our breath between pay periods in September, praying that some state revenue sharing would come in time to make payroll, she said. We also had quite a few people breathing down our necks who had begun to lose their patience and were threatening lawsuits. Fortunately, I was able to negotiate installment payments as Midway: YEAR IN REVIEW Merriment in Havana Santa gets a hug from a young fan before posing for pictures.

On Tuesday, Dec. 3, the Florida Department of Corrections hosted an open house, showcasing the stateof-the-art facility. It is a great day, not only for the Department of Corrections, but an equally great day for this community, said FDOC Secretary Michael Crews. In addition to the jobs that are being brought in, its important for this community to make sure we are doing everything we can to maximize an opportunity for a prisoners successful reintegration into society. This re-entry center is the next piece of the puzzle. The re-entry center is spread across about 47 acres, located directly behind the Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy, giving the center the distinction of being the only correctional institution in the nation located on a college campus. The center will house male prisoners who are within 36 months of release, all coming from North Florida correctional institutions. What weve done in the past in corrections hasnt always worked, but the folks in re-entry have been making a difference, said Gadsden ReEntry Center Warden Walt Summers. In the past five years, our recidivism rates have dropped from 33 percent to 27.6 percent. See CENTER / Page A13 See HAVANA / Page A6

Who ranks higher in public approval polls than Congress, baseball, and apple pie? Public libraries, of course! (Bet you didnt see that answer coming.) TheNew York Timesasked last year, Do we still need libraries? They were insinuating that everything is on the Internet now, so libraries just ought to close up shop and let dust settle on the books. In fact, just the opposite is true. Libraries are still relevant and handling technology splendidly. Seems the newspaper could find no one to argue against libraries. Much to their amazement, public libraries are more beloved to Americans than journalists. According to a new Pew Research Center report, people think libraries are important for borrowing books and media, but they also value services such as computer access, librarian assistance, research, all sorts of programs, help finding a job, and just having a quiet, safe place to plunk down. Anybody whos retrieved a Google search with zillions of results to wade through knows that the Internet can cause information overload. As more print is digitalized, information consumers need librarians to help them navigate through a murky sea of data to determine authenticity. Ninety-four percent of Americans polled in the Pew study believe having a public library improves the quality of life in a community, and 91 percent said they never had a negative experience using a public library. Hmm, sounds like customer satisfaction with libraries is higher than major fast food joints, even if some do offer free Wi-Fi like public libraries. Another highly accurate statistical analysis by The Atlantic magazine recently revealed this amazing comparison of U.S. public institutions in the chart attached.

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, DECEMBER26, 2013 A3 TERRANCE CHISOLMTimes Sports CorrespondentThis past Friday night the Panthers boys basketball team was victorious as they played their final game of 2013 against the Wakulla High War Eagles. Even though they didnt play their best game, West Gadsden was still able to beat the War Eagles by a large margin on their home court in front of Panther fans. With 5:58 remaining in the second quarter, the Panthers held a comfortable 23-7 lead over the War Eagles. Near the midway point of the quarter, West Gadsden began to play undisciplined defense, leading to several trips to the free-throw line for Wakulla. They took advantage of their opportunities and with 1:47 left to play before the half, they had cut into the Panther lead and trailed by a score of 32-23. A three-pointer by a War Eagle player just before the half decreased the Panthers lead even more, and as both teams headed for the locker room, Wakulla had turned this once-lopsided game into a competitive contest trailing by a score of 34-26. The Panthers Mark Bradwell scored the first points of the third quarter on a lay-up to push his teams lead to 36-28. West Gadsden continued to put a lot of pressure on the ball during the third quarter, and their zone defense made it very difficult for the War Eagles to get off a quality shot. With just over a minute left to play in the quarter, after a nice drive by the Panthers elusive point guard they found themselves up by double digits once again as the scoreboard displayed a 48-37 advantage for the Panthers. West Gadsden entered the final quarter of the game with a 48-39 lead, and with 7:24 left in the game a smooth and one play inside by Lajarous Davis, increased the home teams lead 53-39 after he sank his free throw. The Panthers put an exclamation point on the game with 3:19 left to play when Davis threw a perfect pass near the rim to Marquis Foreman, who caught it and threw it down for a nice onehanded dunk. Andrew Reddick scored West Gadsdens final points of the game as he made the two freethrows awarded to him when he was pushed by a War Eagle while handling the basketball. On the Panthers last possession as the final seconds of the game were ticking away, Reddick put up a three-point shoot that went in and out of the rim, and as the final buzzer sounded the home team collected a 59-47 victory over the War Eagles. The Panthers next game will be Jan. 7 in Panama City against Bozeman High School. In the locker room after the game, Panther Head Coach Andrew Moten gave his assessment of the game: I saw some good stuff and some bad stuff; we executed at times and got sloppy at times. We turned the ball over at crucial times and were young so thats going to happen. Weve got to get in and practice.

Photo by Reginald Forehand Bee Bee claws a Christmas phenomenon Bee Bee, my tuxedo cat, has some characteristics that are much like my narcissistic alter ego, Nurse Judys. Both he and she think the world revolves around them. Whatever is going on, that cat is right in the middle of it. When company comes, he is sure that they all have come to see him. He follows them around in the most annoying manner, rubs on their ankles, and sits on their shoes. If they dont pay attention to him, he will jump up on the glass cocktail table, roll around, and lay upside-down with half of him hanging off, checking frequently to see if they are seeing how cute he is. Christmastime is especially exciting for him. He seems to think all the holiday decorations were put there just for him to play with. He is covered with glitter and tinsel daily. Shopping bags, (which with gift shopping are coming into the house frequently) are wonderful playthings. Before I can empty them, he has claimed them as his own. He hides inside and pounces out at anyone brave enough to cross his path. The postman and the UPS man are also frequent visitors at Christmastime. The things they bring are usually packed in boxes. A box is intriguing to Bee Bee. He can play by himself in a box for hours, popping up and down like a Jack in the box. He is not above using it as his lair and launching site the same way he uses bags, snagging your ankle if you get too close. He doesnt mind if you shut him inside. You can hear him shadowboxing while purring at all the fun hes having. When he gets too rambunctious, I can always put him in a box, and hes completely content. He never seems to worry about the fact that if hes too bad I could just ship him off via the USPO or UPS. Life during the holidays is just too delicious to worry about anything. I said he reminded me of Nurse Judy, but I need to amend that. He is self-centered like Nurse Judy, but I hasten to tell you that she has never rubbed at my ankles or laid on my shoes. Neither have I found her batting the Christmas ornaments around though she is frequently covered with tinsel and glitter. She doesnt jump into boxes, but she does dive into shopping bags looking for adornments for herself and, truth be told, there are days Id like to ship her off, too. But I digress. Back to Bee Bee. There seems to be one thing about the decorations that disturbs him. It is Santa Claus. I have many of them sitting around and whenJudy ConlinCAT TALES Judy Conlins cat, Bee Bee, pictured here, makes the most of the holidays.

Invariably around the holidays, we all become wrapped up in the manifest joy of the season. Beginning Thanksgiving Day, the spirit of family, the spirit of joy, the spirit of giving become the primary expressions of our gratitude for the abundance of the past year in this the richest country in the world. Its also a time of singing, laughter, and reminiscence along with our favorite holiday tunes, whether its Irving Berlins White Christmas, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, or Nat King Coles sweet-tempered rendition of Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire. Lets not forget the TV shows that animate the season: A Charlie Brown Christmas or A Christmas Story. They bring Grated thrills for the whole family. Finally, the exchange of gifts, for it is our most profound connection with those whom we love and care for, whatever those who lament the commercialism of the holidays may say. They protest too much: These are the staples of the common faith we share in the importance of fellow human feeling and the indelible acts of kindness and friendship which allow us to overcome lifes often hard and uncaring ways; for the merriment which sows good in this world and makes us more alive to human possibility. Undoubtedly, this seems unusually reflective, but around this time of year, something which tears against the spirit of the holidays, is happening all across America: Over 1.7 million youth are homeless. For a variety of reasons, from family problems to emancipation from foster care, many of these young people have no place to go. Often they stay on the streets, a friends or relatives house, or eventually finds their way to one of many crisis shelters the kind the Florida Network is responsible for representing across Floridas 67 counties. It goes without saying this is a great tragedy. It is our national tragedy. Yet theres a subgroup within that population of homeless youth receiving the least attention that is, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered youth (LGBT). Between 9 percent to 45 percent of the homeless youth population are LGBT youth. As of this writing, it is has been extremely difficult to accurately assess the definite number of such youth because of their developed fears of law enforcement and social service workers. Moreover, those 354 organizations that have reported to the LGBT Homeless Youth Provider Survey, state that almost 40 percent of their total populations are LGBT youth. This, according to the Center for American Progresss landmark report on LGBT youth homelessness, is almost surprising, because out of the total U.S. population of youth, only 5 percent to 7 percent are LGBT. That LGBT youth are over-represented given their numbers in the overall U.S. population in crisis shelters is an indication of the long road to equitable treatment that we must walk in order to bring them from a situation of total hopelessness to a life without indignity, a life without fear, a life of limitless opportunity and possibility. All the surveys give a sense of the conditions LGBT youth face, of why LGBT youth are leaving home: 25 percent to 40 percent leave home because of family conflict and 46 percent because their families refuse to accept their sexual orientation. The result: more are likely to engage in drug use, enter into the black market, steal and engage in survival sex on the streets. What is more, they suffer from a concomitant condition of mental distress, which leads to depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Even more tragically, between 25 percent to 50 percent of LGBT youth will attempt suicide. Nationally, more is being done to recognize this profound, severely ill-met crisis. There is the Runaway and Homeless Youth Inclusion Act of 2013 which, regrettably, languishes in Congress. Still, theres always hope however faint it seems. As you enjoy your holiday among family and friends, count your blessings. Try to remember those less fortunate and more in need of them, who may or may not, find solace this Christmas year.

A4THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, DECEMBER26, 2013 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMLEE ANN HALLAmerican ForumIn August, fast food workers walked off the job in 50 U.S. cities, demanding a raise to $15 an hour. The strikes touched off a national debate about raising wage floors. But this debate has been missing some critical context: a data-driven analysis of what it actually takes to make ends meet in America today, and how the $15 threshold and other proposals stack up. People who are working full-time should earn enough to be able to make ends meet. This is a basic American value. But it turns out $15 an hour falls short for most family structures, far short. Furthermore, our current economic path isnt creating nearly enough jobs that pay above even this basic threshold. These are some of the findings of a new economic study, released December 3rd by the Alliance for a Just Society, providing the data-driven analysis needed to put the wage debate in context. The study, Americas Changing Economy: Searching for Work that Pays in the New Low-Wage Job Market 2013 Job Gap Study, calculates what it costs to make ends meet by analyzing state-level data on the components of a basic, no-frills household budget including food, housing, utilities, child care, health care, and transportation. The Job Gap Study uses these household budgets to calculate living wage levels in 10 states, including lower-cost states like Idaho and higher-cost states like Connecticut, and also New York City. It calculates living wages for five different household structures, from a single individual to two working parents with two kids. So what is a living wage? The study finds the living wage for a single individual ranges from $13.92 an hour in Montana to $22.66 an hour in New York City. For two working parents with two kids, the living wage ranges from $17.69 per parent in Idaho to $24.52 per parent in New York City. For a single parent with one child, it ranges from $19.36 in Montana to $30.02 in New York City. How many job openings will pay these living wage levels, under current economic trends? Not nearly enough. Even at the lowest living wage level, the number of job seekers for each projected job opening that pays a living wage ranges from 5 to 1 in Colorado to 25 to 1 in Connecticut. This is a serious job gap. At the national level, the numbers are similarly troubling. With 20.8 million job seekers in 2012, there are seven job-seekers for every projected job opening in occupations with median wages above $15 an hour. Low-wage jobs are on the rise since the official end of the recession in 2009: jobs with median wages below $15 an hour grew from 36.6 percent of total employment in 2009 to 39.5% in 2012. This isnt just a jobless recovery its an economic course that has slashed 4 million better-paying jobs (above the $15 median wage threshold) and replaced them with 3.6 million lower-paying ones (below the $15 threshold). The findings of the Job Gap Study cast the wage-raising proposals in a new light. Raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, for example, still falls far short of any living wage level. As for the fast food workers call for a $15 an hour wage, it only begins to get in the ballpark of the lowest living wage thresholds which seems a modest target. This debate about wages is important for our whole economy. Because when 50 million workers dont make enough to cover the basics as we have now the whole economy stagnates. If we dont want the trend toward low-wage jobs and anemic growth to become Americas new normal, we need to chart a new course with the rules we write for the economy. One element of this course should be responsible wage floors floors that uphold the principle that people working fulltime should be able to make ends meet while re-orienting job growth to create more economy-boosting jobs.LeeAnn Hall is the Executive Director of the Alliance for a Just Society, a national research, policy and organizing network with affiliates in 10 states.

You decide if this is how you believe the police should behave when citizens are exercising their constitutional right to free speech. On Monday, Dec. 16, 16 people were arrested at two different locations on Highway 26 outside John Day, Ore. They were there in response to Omega Morgan Company moving a heat condenser from the port of Umatilla to the Tar Sands site of the XL pipeline in Canada. This mega-load is so wide that it takes up two lanes of traffic, is 18 feet high, 376 feet long and weighs 450 tons. A similar load was unstable enough to tip over the next day and snarl up traffic on Interstate 205 for hours. Four of the protesters put disabled vehicles on the highway to block the mega-load and bravely locked themselves to the cars. Their action is to protest the devastation of the Athabascan First Nations lands and waters in Alberta that have been destroyed by the mining of the dirty Tar Sands. Additionally, they protest the fact that if all the oil is mined and burned, it will release more carbon than scientists say the planet can tolerate without baking. The protesters were acting to protect all of us. The police responded by arresting not only the four, but also 12 support people (including one minor) who were standing off on the side of the road. Officers issued no warning. Various items were taken from the protesters leaving them exposed to sub-freezing temperatures for 45 minutes. Some of the activists who were locked down to the vehicles were dragged across the asphalt while still locked to the vehicles, literally a risk to limbs if not lives. They were taken to waiting ambulances and inside these vehicles, which are intended to provide medical care to people, officers used pain compliance to force protesters to comply with various demands. In some countries this is called torture. Earlier this month some of these same protesters were on hand across the street from the $32,000-per-couple fundraiser President Obama held in Seattle. They were again peacefully trying to reach the president through banners asking him to cancel the XL pipeline. Secret Service ran jamming devices so that all cell phones in the area went straight to voice mail but could not connect, again interfering with protesters (and uninvolved neighbors) ability to communicate with each other and theOpinionHomeless LGBT youth face risks, alienation The Gadsden County Times15 S.

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, DECEMBER26, 2013 A7 SayingIts time to say thank you for all those nice gifts you received this year. Writing thank-you notes may not be an easy task, but here is some help. Use holiday thank-you cards or postcards. You can buy or make them. One way to make thank-you cards or notes is by using old holiday cards. Cut pictures from the front of cards and paste them on plain paper. Write your thank-you note, fold it and mail it in an envelope. Make a list of everyone who gave you a gift. Be sure to list what gift(s) you received beside each of the names. Add something about the gift. For instance, if someone gave you money, tell how you plan to spend it. Dont be dishonest about your gift, but think about the positives of it. If your aunt gave you socks instead of a toy, tell her how you can really use the socks. Add something about your holiday. For instance, tell where you ate Christmas dinner or how you and your cousins played the dreidel game. Just remember, a thank-you note will make the person who receives it feel great, and it will make you feel good, too.What is Kwanzaa?African-Americans celebrate Kwanzaa from December 26 to January 1 in honor of their heritage. The seven-day celebration was started in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Karenga, a professor at California State University. Based on African festivals, the holiday is a time for African-Americans to think about their heritage and their lives today. The African celebration of Kwanzaa was in honor of the first fruits of the harvest. Four elements made up the original meaning of Kwanzaaunity, an awareness of heritage, recommitment to traditional values and a reverence for the creator and creation. Today during Kwanzaa, a candle is lit each day. The day is dedicated to one of the seven principles of the holiday. The Seven Principles of Kwanzaa are: UmojaUnity KujichaguliaSelf-determination UjimaCollective work and responsibility UjamaaCooperative economics NiaPurpose KuumbaCreativity ImaniFaith When it comes to the celebration, there are many symbols of Kwanzaa.

An intimidating armored vehicle was also parked on the street and swat team members in bulletproof vests, carrying assault weapons, paraded around. Well, we need to protect the president you say? Agreed, but this overthe-top show of force is just a waste of taxpayers money and also violates civil liberties. During Occupy, in city after city the riot control squads came out to control crowds of completely non-violent protesters. Swat teams were clad in all black Darth Vader outfits with smoked visor helmets that render them faceless. They do not have their names listed on their jackets like regular police, and act anonymously, with impunity. We learned at that time that squads in every major city had been given special military training, which includes the tactics of disorientation, pain compliance techniques used last Monday in John Day, and tear gas sprayed directly into peoples face (which can be life threatening if someone has asthma). Why would we militarize police who deal with American civilians? Is this how we want our citizenry treated? Is this what we want done with our tax dollars? So maybe climate change is not your cause. But whatever your favorite cause, is this how you would like to be treated if you came out to simply demonstrate your thoughts? I think there was wisdom in the founding fathers desire to protect dissent, regardless of the cause, which they saw as critical to true democracy.Lynn Fitz-Hugh, Seattle, is a lifelong peace activist, a mother, therapist, and writes for PeaceVoice. PEACEContinued from Page A4 ever he happens upon one, he tips it over and swats it with his paw. I didnt think too much about it at first, figuring he was just playing. As time got closer to the great day and the radio and TV kept talking about Santa, I noticed he became more and more vicious, actually ripping one Santas cap from his head. Luckily he did leave the head on Santas body. What could be bothering him? Then, it came to me. My cat was jealous of all the attention that Santa was getting and that he was not getting. As my Santas became more and more frayed and battle fatigued, I pondered how I should handle the situation. It took a while (Im nothing if not resourceful), but I finally got an idea. I bought a small Santa suit for my cat and put it on him. He immediately perked up and within a few hours stopped battling my decorative Santas. Whenever the TV, radio or anyone mentions Santa now, he just purrs. He believes that he is the real Santa.All I can make of all this is if on Christmas Eve, Nothing is stirring; you hear not a sound, But down your chimney, Bee Bee comes with a bound, All covered with ashes and soot on his paws, Youve had a visit from my brat, Santa Claws. Merry Christmas from Judy, Nurse Judy and Bee Bee CATContinued from Page A3 Letters to Santa These letters to Santa were collected at local branches of the Gadsden County Library System. Each child who wrote a letter to Santa received a free book from the library. Additional letters appeared in the Dec. 19 edition of The Gadsden County Times. Stay alert! The Joy Dispensers are here! Iwas shopping at Michaels (the craft store) in the late afternoon when I heard a conversation in the next aisle between a mother and her 6-yearold child. Oh, Mama, look at this! Uh huh. I love this!! Uh huh. I have one dont I!!! Uh huh. You made it for me didnt you, Mama!!!! Uh huh. Can you make one for Sissy? Uh huh. As I listened to the excitement and love in the sweet childs voice, for her mother and her little sister, and the tired drone of her mothers responses, tears welled up in my eyes. I thought about how many times Id done the same thing with my children when they were young. After all, I had a centerpiece to make, a decoration for the front door to think about, colors to consider, people coming for the holidays to entertain and make welcome and not enough time! At that moment in Michaels I would have given anything to go back to just one time in the aisle of a store, hear my childs voice and not miss what was really happening. Love, joy adoration. The stuff of Christmas! My kids are grown now and Ill never again hear their little bell voices exclaiming their joy over something. That time is gone forever and it flew past like a cheetah on speed. I had to get to the next aisle and see the child! With tears streaming down my cheeks, I peeked around the corner and looked at the small girls happy, little face. She was all dressed up in a Christmassy dress and fancy socks. Her hair was dark brown in shoulder-length curls. She was holding a Christmas stocking with a Santa Claus on it. She looked up and smiled at me. Sissy was asleep in a stroller. Then I looked at the mother. She was tired; I could see it in her eyes. But when she looked into mine, she smiled seeing my love for her child and the moment. I told her what had gone through my mind listening to their conversation. Her tears started to collect as she listened to me and then she said, Now youre making me cry. She dabbed her eye with the back of her wrist, Thank you, I needed to hear this. I get so busy and its easy to neglect her natural enthusiasm. I told the mother it was obvious that her child had not been neglected, because she was such a happy little girl, and that I understood how easy it was to get wrapped up in our own thoughts and miss these holy moments. I left Michaels knowing I wanted to write about this. Your children adore you and they are like little joy dispensers, especially during this time of year. Since its also an especially busy time for you, it can be so easy to miss those gifts of love and joy your children are eager to give to you. Theyre gifts that cant be wrapped up with festive paper or charged on Visa. Stay alert! This is a holy time. Merry Christmas! Pam YoungMAKE IT FUN!

Thats significant because a 1 percent reduction in recidivism gives us a savings of over $19 million over a five-year period. When we open the Gadsden Re-Entry Center, we fully expect those numbers to continue to decrease. Academic programs the center will offer include: English as a secondary language, low level literacy programs, adult basic education and GED preparation and testing. Vocational programs offered include: industrial machine maintenance and repair, masonry, culinary arts and carpentry. The center will also offer counseling programs to help instill inmates with the necessary life skills crucial to living a healthy and productive lifestyle once reintroduced to society. These programs include victim awareness, anger management, money management, parenting skills and more. Having a dedicated facility that is going to target the needs of inmates for a substantial period of time is going to be a differencemaker, said Crews. My hope is that not only will this facility be a flagship for this state, but also for the entire country. The Gadsden ReEntry Center will officially open on Jan. 1. Two other re-entry centers are on the books and waiting for funding.

Over and over again we would have people not wanting to homestead their property but sell it. To me its contrary to responsible growth management. The BoCC was divided on the issue with Commissioners Brenda Holt, Sherrie Taylor and Chairman Eric Hinson in favor of passing the amendment. People are crying now because they have 9 acres of land and cannot deed it to families to use, said Holt. One fellow I know has 27 acres of land and cannot deed it to his children. Holt also echoed Taylors and Hinsons wishes to hold workshops on the issue. Commissioners Gene Morgan and Doug Croley were opposed to the amendment moving forward. I think there is a valid argument for both sides, said Morgan. But what Ive heard consistently is that the potential problems far outweigh the benefits on this issue. In the end, the amendment was approved with a 3-2 vote with Morgan and Croley dissenting. In other business, the BoCC revisited the issue of accepting nonmaintained roads into the county road system so that they can be maintained by the public works department. At previous meetings Taylor had expressed her desire to see private dirt roads be accepted into the county to be paved and maintained by the public works department. It had been previously decided that the budget for the public works department did not allow for the paving of these roads but during the Dec. 17 meeting, the BoCC discussed the possibility of the county maintaining the existing dirt roads. Taylor expressed disappointment at the proposal. This is not what I wanted; this is not what they (citizens in district 5) wanted either, said Taylor. They want the dirt gone; they want pavement. County Administrator Robert Presnell reiterated the lack of funding for paving. Given the current funding for public works there is no way to do that, he said. The commission voted 4-1 to investigate the necessary legal requirements for accepting non-maintained roads into the county system to be maintained as dirt roads. Morgan voted against this. Other county business:The BoCC presented Presnell with an award for his 15 years of service to the county.The board voted to hold a workshop regarding an amendment to the development standards of communication towers. The amendment would change the regulation on how close together cell towers are built. money started to come in with the new fiscal year. Now that the new fiscal year has started and our property tax revenues and other fees have started coming in, were back to a balanced budget and not sweating bullets leading up to payroll. Now that the financial situation has stabilized, InmanJohnson can turn her focus to other pressing matters, such as Midways sewer system. Our problem is Talquins sewer lines and infrastructure were not extended into Midway where most of the population could hook up to a sewer system, she said. The last subdivisions that were built, like Rustling Pines, were built on septic tanks that are starting to fail. Ive sent an inquiry to USDA, asking if they have money that could be made available in their community facilities grant program. Ive also scheduled a meeting with Talquin to try and reestablish what once was a good partnership. Additionally, InmanJohnson will turn her focus on other projects that have long been on the books. I would like to see all of the issues with the fire station addressed, she said. I would also like to see the storm water facility completed so I can concentrate effort on getting on other projects that Midway had under consideration like the senior center and charter school. Looking into the future, the interim city manager has big ideas for economic growth to help make Midway one of the best small towns in Florida. Ive had a few landowners come and talk to me about their vision for what they want to do with their property, she said. They want the city to advise and direct the kind of development that we think would best serve the needs of the citizens: grocery stores, restaurants, a laundrymat and maybe even a drugstore. Ultimately, wed like to move development towards a Midway central city area. Clearly InmanJohnson has made a huge impact in a short amount of time. However, she is quick to point out she has had much help along the way. I walked into a city with deep troubles, but the few employees that were here were very dedicated, she said. I cant say enough about Angela Goldwire (finance and human resources director) and Jerome Turner (newly appointed chief of police). I also feel very lucky to have the city council we have because they seem genuinely interested in moving this city forward, and Mayor David Knight is probably the perfect person to have in that seat right now because he is thoughtful and invested in what is going on in this city. There isnt a councilperson here that doesnt have the best interest of Midway at heart.
