Spill contaminates



groundwater at PCS

84 million gallons of processed water enter sinkhole .


By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com
An estimated 84 million
gallons of contaminated
processed water from PCS's
Swift Creek plant was released
into groundwater through a
sinkhole discovered last
Thursday between 3-4 p.m.,
according to the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection and PCS spokesman


Mike Williams.
As of Tuesday, site
inspections and ongoing
collection of monitoring data
have shown that PCS
production wells are containing
the contaminated water on site.
It appears there was no
contamination of the aquifer
offsite or of nearby drinking
wells, according to a DEP press
release.
"Our first concern is the


protection of public health and
safety," said DEP Secretary
Michael W. Sole in a press
release. "Once we were notified
of the sinkhole our first priority
was to work with PCS and the
appropriate agencies to
determine that the groundwater
contamination has not moved
off the PCS property. We will
continue to work with the

Santa sighting


in Jasper

Christmas in the Park
delights young and old alike
By Joyce Marie Taylor
Correspondent
With only a couple of weeks left before
Christmas, the kids in Jasper were wondering
if and when they would be able to see jolly ol'
Santa. The rumor mill was traveling all
around town and someone hinted that Friday
was the big night. Could it be? Was Santa
really coming to Jasper?
If you're as old as I am, then you must
certainly know by now that Santa likes to
make a grand entrance wherever he goes.
Tonight was no different. It was a crisp, cold
Friday evening on Hatley Street for Christmas
in the Park. Slight rain showers kept trying to
interrupt the festivities, but alas, it did not

young people to know
they can do it," said
Merine. "I have been
blessed with a
wonderful husband
who has been more
than supportive
during this entire
journey, loving sons,
my mother, family and

to the Web site of the
Environmental
Protection Agency
(www.epa.gov/rpdweb

noted the gypsum
produced by PCS is
cleared by the EPA and
is approved for sale as
an agricultural product.
Water used in
phosphate processing
drained into the
sinkhole, said Williams.
PCS employees
discovered the sinkhole


in the third cell of the
phosphogypsum stack
after noticing one of five
processed water ponds,
which are located on top
of the stack, swirling,
according to Williams.
"PCS is committed to
being a good steward to
the environment," said
Williams. "The
company will do
whatever it takes to
remediate the sinkhole
damage."
PCS is working closely
with DEP and state and


local government to
monitor a network of
monitoring wells on and
off-site, said Williams.
A senior
hydrogeologist with
Suwannee River Water
Management said he
does not foresee any
long-term threat.
"It appears the supply
wells captured most of
the contaminated
water," said Carlos
Herd. Sampling over the
weekend resulted in
promising finds. "There
were hits on-site. But it
looks like those levels
are coming back down."
Herd said sampling off-
site has not resulted in
any harmful findings.

Santa sighting in Jasper


Continued From Page 1A
deter many people from
coming out to welcome
the grand and generous
Santa Claus to their
town.
Children of all ages
lined both sides of the
roadway, anxiously
watching the parade
floats amble down
Hatley Street toward
City Park. One look into
their eyes, however, and
there was no mistaking
what thoughts were
churning in their minds:
"Where's Santa?"
Within minutes,
hundreds of eyes lit up
when the guy in the red
suit and the long white
beard was spotted
approaching the park
atop his elegant sleigh.
"Ho! Ho! Ho!" he
shouted. "Merry
Christmas!"
Cheers rang out from
the crowd and kids
were jumping up and
down from pure
anticipation. Soon after
the parade ended, there
was a mad rampage
toward the park.
Parents were holding
onto their children's
hands as they scurried
over toward Santa's
receiving area, which
came complete with a
beautifully lit Christmas
tree and loads of
wrapped presents
underneath a sheltered
veranda.
As Santa's elves were
busy with preparations,
the line of children with
parents in tow formed
quicker than you could
say Rudolph the Red-
Nosed Reindeer.
Within seconds there
were dozens of children
anxiously waiting their
turn in line. One by
one, each child got to sit
on Santa's lap and recite
their list of wishes for
Christmas. Mrs. Claus
was not to be outdone,
either. She was at


Santa's side offering her
best wishes to one and
all. Quite honestly, it
was hard to figure out
who was more excited,
Mr. and Mrs. Claus, the
kids, or their folks, as
they readied their
cameras for that all-
important photo shoot.
While Santa was busy
with one group of
children, there was
another event going on
right beside him on the
paved court. Boys and
girls from the local dance
studios were
entertaining a huge
crowd with their
gymnastics and tumbling
abilities. Again, camera
flashes were going wild
as proud parents
recorded memories.
As the night was
winding down, the chilly
weather was threatening
to freeze little fingers and
toes, mine included. The
mercury kept dipping
lower and lower, but the


More bright lights.

Even at Christmas we must adhere to truth


By David H. Matier,
Doctor of Pastoral Counseling

Recently a radio minister men-
tioned that the enemies of Jesus
didn't deny the miracles He per-
formed but were always question-
ing by what authority or power
He had preformed them. Yet in
our day, as strong as the historical
proof is of the Virgin Birth, men
still want to deny it.
For thousands of years before it
happened it was prophesied that
it would happen. In Genesis 3:15
you can see, what is probably the
earliest prophecy of Christ's first
coming to die for the sins of the
world. Speaking to Satan, the Ser-
pent, God said, "And I will put
enmity between thee and the
woman, and between thy seed
and her seed; it shall bruise thy
head, and thou shalt bruise his
heel." And the prophet Isaiah had
said, "Hear ye now, O house of
David; Is it a small thing for you
to weary men, but will ye weary
my God also? Therefore the Lord
himself shall give you a sign; Be-
hold a virgin shall conceive, and
bear a son, and shall call his name
Immanuel," (Isaiah 7:13, 14 and
if your Bible doesn't say VIRGIN
in the context, you are using the
wrong Bible!). Notice Matthew
refers to this passage, "Now this
was done, that it might be fulfilled
which was spoken of the Lord by
the prophet, saying, Behold, a vir-


gin shall be with child, and shall
bring forth a son, and they shall
call his name Emmanuel, which
being interpreted is, God with
us," (Matthew 2:23).
Remember now the men of
His time and early historians did-
n't dispute the miracles, only how
they were accomplished. THE
VIRGIN BIRTH IS A FACT! I
don't know how it happened but I
know that Jesus is the virgin born
son of Mary conceived, not by
the man she was betrothed to,
Joseph, but by the Holy Ghost.
And it was not because Joseph
and Mary weren't capable of hav-
ing children on their own. In
Matthew 13:55, for instance, the
Bible reads, speaking of Jesus, "Is
not this the carpenter's son? is
not his mother called Mary? and
HIS BREATHERN, James, and
Joses, and Simon, and Judas? and
his SISTERS, are they not all with
us?..." (Matthew 13:55, 56). From
these verses we see that Joseph
and Mary had 5 sons (including
Jesus) and at least 2 daughters.
Mary and Joseph did go on to
have a "normal" family life.
Only this year did I get a new
insight in to Isaiah 9:6 "For unto
us a child is born, unto us a son is
given:..." Mary's part was
birthing the child. God gave His
Son! Mary was human. As such
she was as susceptible to sin, born
with the sin nature, just like any
other human being; "For all have


sinned, and come short of the glo-
ry of God;" (Romans 3:23). Mary
must have been a righteous
woman to have been chosen to be
the mother of our Lord; to have
been chosen to be impregnated by
the Holy Ghost but she was hu-
man blessed of God I am sure,
but so are you if you are living for
Him.
If you are not familiar with the
Christmas story as told in the
Bible it would be good to read
Luke's account in Luke 2:1-21 and
then go on to read Matthew's ac-
count in Matthew 1:18 2:15. We
know that the wise men, in
Matthew, didn't show up until al-
most 2 years later because Herod
had all the babies up to 2 years old
killed (Matthew 2:16 also notice
Jesus was referred to as "the
young child," not a baby in
Matthew) which would indicate it
had been almost 2 years since Je-
sus had been born.
It is evident that Jesus probably
wasn't born on December 25th -
but that is the day most people
have set aside to celebrate the
birth of the Lord Jesus Christ and
I trust you will do just that. With
all the gift giving and feasting that
you'll keep Him in the center of it
all -
HAVE A VERY MERRY
CHRISTMAS!

Grant to help rural students find path to careers in science CIulilaflJAils and
CoCmmercial Foods Pronram


Submitted
GAINESVILLE, Fla. < To help more high school
students from rural areas of Florida get on the path
toward careers in science and technology, Universi-
ty of Florida researchers are targeting the adults at
the front of the classroom first.
UF researchers have received an $808,000 Science
Education Partnership Award from the National In-
stitutes of Health's National Center for Research Re-
sources to fund a program that will help teachers in
rural school districts expose students to the sciences
and better prepare them to pursue education and ca-
reers in the field of biomedical sciences.
"We're trying to show (students) that there are
multiple pathways to science careers so they can
make educated decisions," said Richard Snyder,
Ph.D., a co-principal investigator on the grant and
director of the UF Center of Excellence for Regener-
ative Health Biotechnology. "It really begins with
educating the teachers, and with this program teach-
ers are not just getting up to speed, they will be able
to teach and guide students in the state of the art."
Often, teachers and students don't know about the
variety of careers available in science and technolo-
gy. This can limit a student's perspective before he
or she even starts college, said Mary Jo Koroly,
Ph.D., the principal investigator on the grant and di-
rector of the UF Center for Precollegiate Education
and Training. Because of this lack of knowledge
about science and biotechnology careers, some stu-
dents never even consider pursuing these fields, she
added.
"We want to show students that science is fun and
exciting and that there is a place for them even if
they don't want to be physicians or Ph.D.s," Koroly
said. "Rural Florida is so underrepresented in Flori-
da's colleges and universities. We want students to
know there are tremendous opportunities out there,
and they can succeed if they are interested."
Unfortunately, schools have limited resources
(particularly in rural areas) making it more difficult
for teachers to expose students to the latest research
areas, the newest technology and scientific equip-
ment, and how it all applies to different scientific
fields, Koroly said.


UF's program will bring teachers to the university
for a summer institute, where they will learn about
translational research (the practice of translating sci-
entific discoveries into technologies) and treatments
that can help patients. The teachers, who receive
three graduate credits for their work, will spend
time in labs and will develop action research pro-
posals to use what they have learned in their own
classrooms, Koroly said. Teachers also will be able to
borrow modern equipment to use in their science
classes.
Eventually, the teachers will come back to UF to
present what they did and will have an opportunity
to bring some of their students to campus. This al-
lows students to visit real labs and see what being a
researcher is actually like. Snyder says this helps de-
mystify science for students, particularly when
meeting graduate students who aren't much older
than them.
With Florida heavily invested in becoming a world
leader in biotechnology, educated professionals will
be needed to fill jobs created as companies set up
shop in the state. Because many more jobs will be
available in these areas in the future, pursuing sci-
ence and technology could prove to be a wise choice
for students, Snyder said. "Personnel at every level
are needed," he said.
Although this latest program is primarily target-
ing rural schools in North Florida and in Florida's
Panhandle, the researchers previously have orga-
nized similar programs for teachers in other parts of
the state. UF's Center for Precollegiate Education
and Training also holds a Mini Medical School pro-
gram each year, bringing in teachers from across the
state to learn about new areas of research and to vis-
it UF labs.
"We wanted to make it so teachers are our part-
ners, whether they are teaching students who choose
career pathways or the academic ladder," Koroly
said. "If we, as scientists, provide them with current
information, equipment and support, then together
we can make a big difference in improving science
teaching and learning and help inspire and excite
students to seek higher levels of education and ca-
reers in the bench-to-bedside continuum."

That way, we can find the life
insurance policy that best suits

Lifestyle Enrichment Center to host Health Ministry Open House


Submitted

It is estimated that almost half of all Americans are living with at least one
chronic disease. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC), chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease are highly preva-
lent and costly, yet most are preventable. Many people lack the resources,
knowledge, and support to prevent illness, manage chronic disease, and make
informed decisions with regards to adopting a healthier lifestyle.
Across the country, the faith community is working to address health concerns
through congregational health ministry. Health ministry is an opportunity for
congregations to use their time and talents to provide for the health needs of
members and the community. A 2006 2007 survey conducted by the National
Council of Churches USA found that n'i'.. of responding churches reported pro-
viding health education programs in their communities. The survey also re-
vealed that churches are providing direct health care services and advocacy on
behalf of health-related policy issues. Within a congregation, a health ministry
team is made up of members who coordinate health programs and services by
identifying individual member's heath concerns and the health interests of the
congregation and community.
Suwannee River Area Health Education Center, the Columbia County Health
Department and Well Florida Council are collaborating to assist congregations
in north central Florida in the development of health ministries. The Congrega-
tional Health Ministry program will help congregations develop and sustain vi-
able health ministries by offering training, networking opportunities, and ongo-
ing support. Training and other activities are free of charge and provided in col-
laboration with The Center for Community Health Ministry at Florida Hospital.

FWC moves ahead with

proposed hunting rules, adding

new public hunting lands


Submitted

The seven-member
Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) di-
rected its staff today to
proceed with advertis-
ing new rule proposals
to be voted on at a fu-
ture Commission meet-
ing. They would affect
the 2010-11 hunting
season.
The proposal affect-
ing the most hunters
would modify zone
boundaries and season
dates for deer hunting.
The proposal would
move the boundary
(that meanders through
Tallahassee) separating
the current Northwest
Hunting Zone from the
Central Zone a little far-
ther west. The propos-
al also calls for an addi-
tional hunting zone,
made up in part by the


Green Swamp Basin.
This proposal takes into
account hunter sugges-
tions and new biologi-
cal data, and it aims to
modify and better align
hunting season dates
with when deer breed,
thereby increasing
hunter satisfaction.
Other rule proposals
would establish public
hunting opportunities
on new parcels in the
state's wildlife manage-
ment area (WMA) sys-
tem. Included in these
new areas would be the
1,290-acre Fort White
Mitigation Park in
Gilchrist County. The
proposal calls for the
area to have an archery
season, small-game sea-
son and spring turkey
season.
The Lafayette Forest
Wildlife Environmental
Area (WEA) is another
area comprising 2,148


Appliatio NOW BeingAccepte
1 386-64-4210 565052-F
S SO


acres in Lafayette
County, slated to have
archery, muzzle-load-
ing gun, family, wild
hog and spring turkey
hunts.
The 9,242-acre
Charles H. Bronson
WMA in Orange and
Seminole counties
would feature archery,
muzzle-loading gun,
general gun and spring
turkey hunts with
hunter quotas and
small game hunts and
migratory bird seasons
with no quotas.
The Department of
Environmental Protec-
tion's 5,361-acre Mar-
shall Swamp in Marion
County, currently a
public small-game
hunting area, would be
established as a full-
blown WMA, offering
archery, muzzleloader,
general gun, small
game and spring turkey
hunts.
Watermelon Pond
WEA is a 4,231-acre
tract in Alachua County
that is cooperatively
owned by the Division
of Forestry and the
FWC. It too would fea-
ture an archery season
and small-game hunts.

Project: The fuel for the ADAGE Power
Plant will be clean woody biomass includ-
ing: clean untreated lumber; tree stumps;
tree limbs; slash; wood residue; bark; saw-
dust; sander dust; wood chips; scraps;
slabs; millings; shavings; pallets; and
processed pellets made from wood or oth-
er forest residues. The fuel will be com-
busted in a bubbling fluidized bed (BFB)
boiler to produce 55.5 megawatts (net) of
electric power. Natural gas, ultralow sulfur
fuel oil or propane will be used for BFB
startup and stabilization.
Based on the air permit application, the
project will result in emissions increases
of: 247.5 tons per year (TPY) of carbon
monoxide (CO); 236 TPY of nitrogen ox-
ides (NOX); 140 TPY of particulate matter
(PM); 110 TPY of PM with a mean diame-
ter of 10 micrometers (Bm) or less
(PM10); 26 TPY of sulfuric acid mist
(SAM); 150 TPY of sulfur dioxide (SO2);
60 TPY of volatile organic compounds
(VOC); 0.175 TPY of lead (Pb) and 9.7
TPY of hydrogen chloride (HCI). A review
for the Prevention of Significant Deteriora-
tion (PSD) and a best available control
technology (BACT) determination were
not required.
To insure that emissions are less than the
respective major source thresholds for
PSD and hazardous air pollutants (HAP)
and that compliance is achieved with ap-
plicable new source performance stan-
dards, ADAGE will install or implement the
following air pollution control equipment
and practices on the BFB boiler: fabric fil-
ters and good combustion design and
practices (PM, PM10, CO, VOC); selective
catalytic reduction (NOX, VOC and dioxin
furan); and inherently low sulfur fuels and
an induct sorbent injection system (HCI,
SAM, S02). Continuous emissions moni-
toring systems (CEMS) will be installed
for S02, NOX, CO and HCI. Emissions
from emergency support equipment shall
be controlled by use of clean fuels and
good combustion and design. Reasonable
precautions will be employed to minimize
emissions from biomass handling, stor-
age and processing.

Florida's youth
hunters would benefit
under another rule pro-
posal. This one would
create a two-day youth
turkey hunt the week-
end prior to the open-
ing of spring turkey
season in each hunting
zone. Only those under
16 years old could har-
vest a turkey while su-
pervised by an adult,
18 years of age or old-
er. Those adult super-
visors who have the re-
quired license and per-
mits would be allowed
to do the "calling" and
otherwise participate in
the hunt, but they
would not be allowed
to harvest a turkey.
The Commission also
approved draft rule


changes that would al-
low the transport and
release of nuisance
wildlife at an off-site
location, if certain con-
ditions are met. The
nuisance wildlife must
be a native species; the
release site must be
within the same county
of capture; the release
site must be a mini-
mum of 40 contiguous
acres; the person releas-
ing the nuisance
wildlife must have
written permission of
the owner of property
where the animal is be-
ing released; and the
transportation of
wildlife does not vio-
late any rabies alert or
area quarantine issued
by a county health de-
partment or county ani-
mal service.
