PCS workers



recovering



from burns

More surgery ahead for one

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com
Two PCS employees who suffered burns last week when
a 15-ton boom lift came in contact with a power line are
recovering, according to PCS spokesman Mike Williams.
Maintenance workers were moving a motor using the
boom lift when it came into contact with an overhead
power line at about 12:30 p.m. last Wednesday, according
to a company press release.
As of late Monday afternoon, Area Maintenance Foreman
Randy Beauchamp of Hamilton County, who suffered
severe burns, had undergone skin graft surgery and was
expected to undergo additional surgery this week, said
Williams.
Electrical Area Foreman Ronald Spells of Statenville, Ga.
was scheduled for release from Shands UF, according to
Williams.
PCS is currently investigating the incident, said Williams.

The biomass plant proposed for
Hamilton County isn't the only
such facility that may soon fire up
its incinerators in the area. Several
companies have outlined plans for
new biomass plants from
Gainesville to central Georgia on
the hopes of creating new industry
and reducing harmful emissions
into the atmosphere. In fact,
another biomass plant may be in
the works for Hamilton County.
American Renewables is seeking to

The Florida Department of Environmental
Protection has issued the final permit to Adage
Biopower for a 55-megawatt biomass fueled power
plant to be built in Hamilton County. The company
plans to begin construction within the next four
months.
Adage Spokesmen Jerret Adams said his
company's goal is to "ensure healthy, sustainable
forests so they will remain a renewable resource for
the community as well as providing a renewable
fuel source."
The plant, to be located at State Road 6 and
County Road 146, will convert waste wood to fuel.
However, some critics are challenging the
company's environmental claims.
"Clean and green? It's anything but that, it's
dirty," said Dr. Ron Saff, asthma and allergy

Biomass plant brings jobs, controversy

specialist in Tallahassee
and a member of
Physicians for Social
Responsibility, a non-
profit advocacy group.
Others claim there is
not enough of the
company's fuel of
choice, "forest waste,"
to accommodate the
plant.
Michele Curtis of
Buckeye of Florida, a
pulp mill, said Adage
has greatly
overestimated the
amount of waste wood
available. "There is just
not enough out there,"
said Curtis.
The Adage plant here
isn't the only biomass
plant that may soon fire
up its incinerators in the
area. Several companies
have outlined plans for
new biomass plants
from Gainesville to
central Georgia in the
hopes of creating new
industry and reducing
harmful emissions into
the atmosphere. In fact,
another biomass plant


may be in the works for
Hamilton County.
American Renewables is
seeking to build a new
plant in White Springs.
The financial benefits
are considerable,
especially in a place like
Hamilton County,
where unemployment
measured 12.5 percent
in December.
The Adage plant, the
first to receive approval
by FDEP, will pay an
estimated $550,000
dollars in taxes annually
after 70 percent
abatement during the
first five years,
according to Hamilton
County Coordinator
Danny Johnson.
Johnson said Adage
would also make a
payment of $1.4 million
dollars to the county's
school system.
The plant will create
about 140-150 new jobs
during construction and
in the related timber
industry, as well as
about 25-40 greatly
needed full-time jobs,
said Johnson.

"Adage has promised
their intentions are to be
good stewards of the
environment and the
local community," said
Johnson.
The source
Adage plans to use up
to 600,000 tons of wood,
mainly "forest waste,"
the term for tree limbs,
roots, storm debris and
tops and stumps left
over after lumber is
harvested.
Adage hopes to create
a new forest waste
market within a 50-mile
radius of the plant.
Supporters say this
contemporary usage of
an ancient source will
help reduce harmful
atmospheric emissions.
However, its critics say
this use of forest waste is
unrealistic.
Buckeye's Curtis says
Adage has
overestimated the
amount of wood they
can gather from forest
waste.
"There is not enough
waste material within a
50 mile radius of any
plant to supply all the
needs of a 55-megawatt
plant," said Curtis. "In
fact, I believe there will
be only enough waste
material to supply 20 to
30 percent of their
annual needs." Curtis
said her opinion is based
on 31 years of experience
as a forester.
Adage spokesmen
Jerret Adams said his
company has based its
forest waste estimates on
years of experience and
extensive research.
"Our estimates are
based on real world
experience," said
Adams. "We will be
harvesting what is
otherwise considered
waste for a helpful
purpose for humans."

The Florida Forestry
Association says it's a
positive sign.
"The potential for
greater wood use is a
positive sign that more
forests will be growing
here," said FFA
Executive Vice President
Jeff Doran. "To sustain
Florida's forests,
landowners will need
economic incentives to
stay on the land.
Producing a continuous
supply of trees for wood,
paper, energy and other
products society
demands is key to
keeping our forests
healthy and
sustainable."
Adams said the
company's use of forest
waste would cut down
on methane gases in the
atmosphere and the risk
of forest fires.
"This material would
be burned or simply rot
on the forest floor, in
either case producing
CO2 emissions," he said.
The plant plans to
supplement its use of
forest waste with land
clearing and storm
debris, production
residuals, and lumber
mill and construction
wood waste.
"We want to be sure to
have minimal impact on
the environment," said
Adams. "Biomass is
considered a carbon
neutral, renewable
power source. By using
biomass, you're part of
the carbon cycle."
Still, some
environmentalists worry
about any removal of
forest waste.
"Those trimmings
need to stay in the forest
to replenish the soil,"
said environmentalist
Joy Towles Ezell of
Taylor County. "You're
taking all the nutrients
out of the soil and in the
end you won't be able to
grow anything."
Emissions
Based on the air
permit, the project will
result in emissions
increases of nearly 1,000
tons per year of carbon
monoxide, nitrogen
oxides, particulate
matter, sulfuric acid
mist, sulfur dioxide,
volatile organic
compounds, lead,
hydrogen chloride and
other materials.
"Biomass plants


pollute the air, cause
cardiac and lung
conditions, and cancer,"
argues physician Saff.
"This is not something
you want to welcome
into your community."
The Department of
Environmental
Protection disagrees.
"This facility is not a
major source of
hazardous air
pollutants," said Amy
Graham of DEP. "The
draft permit requires the
facility to install air
pollutant control
equipment and
measures to minimize
any particulate matter
emissions."
Saff responded: "Just
as there's no such thing
as a safe cigarette, there
is no such thing as a safe
biomass plant. The


Florida Medical
Association is deeply
concerned about the
poisonous gases that
will spew from the
smoke stacks."
However, Jay Liles of
the Florida Wildlife
Federation said whether
biomass plants are
dangerous depends on
the source of fuel.
Although he is not
directly familiar with the
Adage plant, he believes
biomass plants, which
use forest waste, are a
step in the right
direction.
"I think it's a good
move for us to start
looking at alternative
fuel sources such as
forest waste," said Liles.
"In the grand scheme of
things, I think this is the
right direction."

Local young lady competes for the

Miss Jr. Pre-Teen Jacksonville Title


Kalynda Heck-Johns


Submitted
Kalynda Heck-Johns of
Jasper was recently se-
lected to participate in
Nationals' 2010 Miss Jr.
Pre-Teen Jacksonville
pageant competition that
will take place on Febru-
ary 13, 2010. Kalynda
learned of her acceptance
into this year's competi-
tion as Nationals, Inc. an-
nounced their selections
on Monday (January 18)
afternoon. Kalynda sub-
mitted an application
and took part in an inter-
view session that was
conducted by Natalie
Michelle, this year's Jack-


sonville Pageant Coordi-
nator.
Kalynda will be com-
peting for her share of
thousands of dollars in
prizes and specialty gifts
that will be distributed to
contestants. Kalynda will
be competing in the Miss
Jr. Pre-Teen division, one
of four divisions that will
have young ladies be-
tween the ages of 7 and
19 competing in model-
ing routines which in-
clude casual wear and
formal wear. Most im-
portant, Kalynda will
display her personality
and interviewing skills


while interviewing with
this year's Jacksonville
judging panel. Personali-
ty is the number one as-
pect that each contestant
is judged on during all
phases of competition.
If Kalynda were to win
the title of Miss Jr. Pre-
Teen Jacksonville, she
would represent Jack-
sonville and the sur-
rounding communities
at the Cities of America
National Competition
that will take place in Or-
lando, Florida. Over
$60,000.00 in prizes and
awards will be presented
at the National Competi-
tion while each winner
enjoys this expense paid
trip of five nights and six
days in Orlando, Florida.
There is no cost to Ka-
lynda for participating in
the pageant competition.
Community businesses,
organizations, and pri-
vate individuals will as-
sist Kalynda in partici-
pating in this year's com-
petition by becoming an
official sponsor to her.
Through sponsorship,
each contestant receives
all the necessary train-
ing, rehearsals, and fi-
nancial support which
will allow Kalynda to be-
come a very confident
and well-prepared con-
testant in this year's Jack-
sonville Pageant.
Any business, organi-
zation, or private indi-
vidual who may be inter-
ested in becoming a
sponsor to Kalynda may
contact her pageant coor-
dinator, Natalie Michelle
at 1-800-569-2487.

Many changes have
occurred in our church
since the new year be-
gan. Pastor Fran Wood,


after nine years with us,

Pastor Wayne is young
and vibrant and we are
his first church. Our
church is loving and we
all feel as though we are
family. That will not
change with the change
of our minister and that
is comforting.
Won't you join our
family? Church Services
begin at 11:00 a.m. with
fellowship before ser-
vice about 10:15-10:45

Pastor Fran Wood put
this scripture verse in
our worship folder each
week: "Let us not give
up meeting together, as
some are in the habit of
doing, but let us encour-
age one another and all
the more as you see that
day approaching." [He-
brews 10:25] NIV

It was a day filled with
non-stop rain; but, our
seniors came to play!
Kavin Dobson, Delafonta
Ward, Saul Speights,
Aaron Hotchkiss, and
Chester Bristol left a last-
ing impression for
HAMCO!
Delafonta Ward was
selected defensive player
of the game for the east.
The boys played with
surrounding counties
such as Suwannee,
Madison Columbia, Fort
White, Bradford, Union,
Taylor, Dixie, and
Lafayette.
We have great stu-
dents as well as athletes
and Hamilton County
was well represented.
Even though the west
prevailed with a 17-14
victory, our seniors were
definitely all-stars giving
their all on every play as
they have done all year.
We wish them well on
their futures. A huge
"thank you" to the faith-
ful parents, family and
friends that rallied in the
rain with us!

One Way


By David H. Matier,
Doctor of Pastoral Counseling

There are many in society today
who believe that "all roads lead to
Rome." In other words, "It doesn't
matter to which religion you adhere,
they are all good and the result is the
same."
On January 17th many celebrated
World Religion Day using a symbol
like the one below. Notice that on this
symbol of world religions Christianity
is grouped in with all the others as be-
ing the same as them; just an equal.
Not above them nor below them, in-
ferring that there is no need of Jesus,
just be a good adherent to SOME reli-
gion!
But what does God's Word say?
First of all it tells you "Thou shalt have
no other gods before me. Thou shalt
not make unto thee any graven image,
or any likeness of any thing that is in
heaven above, or that is in the earth
beneath, or that is in the water under
the earth: Thou shalt not bow down
thyself to them, nor serve them: for I
the Lord thy God am a jealous God,
(Exodus 20: 3-5) The first of the great
Ten Commandments! God says,
"Don't use any substitutes; I AM the
only God!" He repeats this to a new
generation of Israelites in Deuterono-
my 5:7-9. A new generation of Is-
raelites because all but two of them
that began the trip out of Egypt died
in the wilderness because of their un-
belief/disobedience. Moses wasn't
even allowed to go into the Promised
land because of his disobedience and
you think God has an "anything goes"
policy any religion will do.
"Jesus saith unto him (Thomas), I
am the way, the truth, and the life: no
man cometh unto the Father, but by
me," (John 14:6). When you are trav-
eling through a forest and the trail
markers indicate you are on the right
trail would you follow one of the trails
that lead off to the side and take your
chances of getting lost or would you
follow the way that you know is the
sure way? He marked Himself out
among all the gods of that day, of all
the declared ways to get to God as be-
ing, "The Way," a declarative state-


ment, setting forth truth.
Jesus declared in the above passage
(John 14:6) that He was not only the
way, but He is, "the truth." In His
prayer He said, "Sanctify them
through thy truth: thy word is truth,
(John 17:17). He is the LIVING
WORD "In the beginning was the
Word..." (John 1:1). Jesus Christ is
TRUTH not some other way so why
should you celebrate some other way
as though it is as good/or equal to
Christianity? He is truth, not Buddha.
He is truth, not Zoroaster. He is truth,
not Mohamed. He is truth, not any of
the ancient gods! And he is the only
One that left an empty tomb that you
can go and visit. The others you can
visit their places of burial!
He said, "I am...the life." He grants,
those that will believe in Him, trust
His sacrificial death on the cross for a
once-for-all-payment for their sins,
eternal life! And after that initial deci-
sion of the believer he works with
him/her to regain their life (save them
- "...work out your own salvation with
fear and trembling," Philippians 2:12).
And the capstone on your salvation
will be when the Lord comes back in
the air to receive you unto Himself or
when you meet him in death He is
the LIFE giving eternal life to all that
believe; something no other religion
can promise. That eternal life is ini-
tially given the moment you believe -
"These things have I written unto you
that believe on the name of the Son of
God; that ye may know that ye have
eternal life, and that ye may believe on
the name of the Son of God," (I John
5:13).
Finally, notice, that Jesus said, in
John 14:6, "...no man cometh unto the
Father, but by me," He declares, "NO
MAN COMETH UNTO THE FA-
THER, BUT BY ME." There is no oth-
er way! That is why Christians that
understand the truth don't celebrate
World Religion Day. They know that
it matters. It makes a difference and
after all Religion doesn't take you to
heaven anyway. Jesus Christ Is the
way to heaven.

step into the job without missing a
beat," Commissioner Hines Boyd
said in making his motion to select
Lilly, which Commissioner Stephen
Fulford seconded.
Commissioner Felix "Skeet" Joyner
quite agreed with Boyd. He praised
Harrison's qualifications and the
latter's willingness "to step up to the
plate".
"But John Lilly has proved himself
and I can't turn my back on that,"
Joyner said.
Lilly, a 1980 graduate of Hamilton
County High School, is proud of his
roots.
"My upbringing in Hamilton
County really prepared me for this
position," he said. "All the support I
received from grade school all the
way through high school helped
greatly."
Commissioners Danny Monroe
and Gene Hall likewise praised the
other candidate and noted that the
county was lucky to have two
qualified applicants apply for the
job, but all things considered, their
choice had to be Lilly, they said.
Commissioners earlier had
postponed a decision on the
selection of the directorship,


pending their interviewing of the
two candidates.
Lilly is a 21-year veteran of the
Jefferson County Extension Office.
He holds a Master's in agricultural
education and has been involved in
agriculture-related educational
programs since 1986. He started with
the Jefferson County Extension
Office in 1988, attaining his most
recent position as an agent IV and 4-
H coordinator.
In referring the two candidates to
the Jefferson County Commission
for the final selection of one, Dr. Pete
Vergot, extension director of the
northwest district, indicated to
officials here that either candidate
would be acceptable to the
University of Florida Institute of
Food and Agricultural Services
(IFAS).
Speaking earlier in support of
Lilly's selection were several
community leaders, including
former Monticello News publisher
Ron Cichon, retired Methodist
Minister Carl Hanks, and retired
Jefferson County School District
administrator, Albert Thomas, all of
whom described Lilly to one degree
or another as a good, caring and
dedicated community leader and "a
standup guy."


Heart Matters


By Angie Land

I lost something this week...and I
wonder if you have ever noticed that
no matter how small or large your loss,
it immediately becomes the center of
your attention. Lost your car keys?
Everything else stops and a massive
hunt begins. Lose your job? All the
frustrations that went along with it
seem minor in comparison to trying to
find a new one. However, as frustrat-
ing as losing keys and jobs can
be...they can be replaced. Lose your
health and every other issue becomes
secondary. Lose a loved one and you
wonder, "How on earth did I ever take
one moment for granted?"
In Luke 15, the Bible records three of
Jesus' parables dealing with some-
thing lost...a sheep, a coin, and a son.
The shepherd has one hundred sheep
and loses one, so he secures the ninety-
nine and goes in search of the one. A
certain woman with ten coins, loses
one and lights the lamp to search care-
fully until she finds it. The father,
whose youngest son chooses to leave
home, waits and watches for his re-
turn. In all three examples, what was
lost became the concentrated fo-
cus...what was taken for granted, im-
mediately became urgently important.
Perhaps then, experiencing loss is
the cure for a more tragic
problem...the agent of familiarity. In
his book, God Came Near, author Max
Lucado writes,
"(Familiarity's) goal is nothing less
than to take what is most precious to
us and make it appear most common.
To say that this agent of familiarity
breeds contempt is to let him off easy.
Contempt is just one of his offspring.
He also sires broken hearts, wasted
hours, and an insatiable desire for
more. He's an expert in robbing the
sparkle and replacing it with the
drab...and his strategy is deceptive."


By definition the word "familiar"
means "frequently seen or experi-
enced; of everyday occurrence." No
surprises there, but the next descrip-
tion should shake us out of our busi-
ness as usual routines. Familiarity in-
dicates an absence of ceremony...life
with nothing to celebrate because
everything becomes...ordinary. That
girl who used to make your heart
race...barely gets a second glance from
the comfort of your recliner, and that
guy you used to dress up for on Satur-
day nights now gets only the left-over
energy from your day. What about
the child who brought tears to your
eyes in the delivery room, but now
spends more time in front of the televi-
sion than with you. With our spouse,
children, family and friends...every
day of life is cause for a celebration by
the sheer fact that we aren't promised
even one more...and each one could
be the last.
What I lost this week was a
friend...and while I have joy and
peace knowing that he is in heaven, I
am sad that I let his friendship grow
ordinary to me. I saw him every week,
with no thought that this week would
be any different. While the opportuni-
ty to tell him just what a great guy I
thought he was is gone, I have been re-
minded of the extraordinary reasons to
celebrate life...it is precious and it is
short...and nothing about it is ordi-
nary.

Both districts are coordinating on the
water supply planning process. The
process is open to the public and in-
volves local governments, water sup-
ply utilities, self suppliers, other gov-
ernments and other interested parties.
