County TO Negot ate Costs


Of Industrial Park Repairs


LAZARO ALEMAN :-
Senior Staff Writer

Commissioners last week author-
ized consultant engineer Frank Da-
rabi to negotiate with potential
contractors to bring down the cost
of the needed repairs at the indus-
trial park.
Part of the proposed solution that
Darabi will discuss with the contrac-
tor to bring down the cost is the idea
of the Road Department doing some
of the work.
The Natural Resources Conserva-
tion Service (NRCS) last year
awarded .the county $191,000 for
the project. But the money must be
spent before March.
Commissioners worry that the
county may yet'lose the funding, if
they don't act timely to commit the
money.
Two weeks ago, commissioners
opened bids for the job. The lowest
bid received, however, was
$251,000. And that was only for
phase one of the work, which con-
sists of two phases.
Commissioners have been strug-

gling with the correction, of the
drainage problems at the industrial
park,ever since late 2003, when the
Department of En\mronmental Pro-
tection (DEP) conducted an inspec-
tion of the site.
The DEP found, among -other
things, that the retention pond the
county constructed at the southwest
corner of the property when the jail
was built in 1998 had never been
properly permitted.
The state agency also required that
the county install an overflow sys-
tem, so that the stormwater will
flow into a nearby creek, eliminat-
ing the flooding problems in the
area.
In other Road Department related


news, Superintendent Da\ id Harve\
informed the commission last '.'.ek
that he has ceased repairing hurri-
cane damaged roads for the time be-
ing.
Harvey said he will await word on
the Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Administration (FEMA) fund-
ing before proceeding with any
more of the work.
"I'm already $40,000 to $50,000
into the repairs," Ha'nre said. "I
don't 1ant1 to spend any more'
money if %e're not going to get the
FEMA funding."
Local Emergency Management
Director Carol Ellerbe assured Har-
vey that the FEMA money was
coming.: It was just that the approval
process took a long time, Ellerbe
said, especially given the statewide
devastation the rash of hurricanes
caused during the summer
FEMA officials, in fact, \%ere
scheduled to hold a public meeting
6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the
courthouse. The meeting was to help
residents who suffered hurricane
'damage better understand the reim-
bursement process.


'LAZARO ALEMAN
,Senior Staff Writer

County Commissioners,made an-
other stab at revising the Develop-
ment Code last week.
After an hour and a half of discus-
sion, however, their only accom-
plishment was a minor change to the
minimum road standards for subdi-
visions.
Turns out that the County Com-
mission adopted the minimum road
standards in 1995 and then more or
less forgot about them.
Apparently, the standards resur-
faced recently in relation ,to two
forthcoming developments that plan
to challenge the requirements
"This is a key issue that wvill be in
the front burner the next several
months," Planning Official Bob
Arredond:. told commissioners
When informing them of the prob-
Slem last week. "It will impact on fu-
hire oadd maintenance costs."
The standards require, jmong
other things, that subdivision roads


be constructed a minimum 60-feet
wide -- a width that some argue is
excessive and unreasonable for
small subdivisions.
"This is about property right,"
realtor Barry Kelly said. "If a person
has to hire an engineer and pave
roads, it's prohibitive...Don't get
bogged down on rules and regula-
tions that hurt small subdivisions."
As it was, Kelly said, the county
had a double standard.
"We've got standards from 1995
and we haven't enforced them,"
Kelly said. "I can show you subdivi-
sions that haven't followed the rules.
I think you need standards, but
we've got a development code that's
inches thick and we don't enforce
it."
Officials, on the other hand, worry
that if they don't require developers
to pave roads, the county will con-
tinue to inherit dirt roads whose
maintenance constitutes a drain on
the public coffers.
"We're bombarded on a daily basis
i\ iih requests from people who want
their roads paved," Commissioner


Felix Joyner explained.
Kelly wondered if the solution
wasn't to ensure that realtors and de-
velopers informed home buyers up-
front that private dirt roads were not
the county's responsibility.
It wouldn't help, even if such a
practice could be established, Joyner
said. The fact was .that properties
got sold from one person to the next
and the information never got re-
lated. The next thing, a property
owner was complaining that he or
she was paying taxes yet their road
wasn't paved.
"We need to protect property
rights, but we also need to protect
the people who purchase the proper-
ties," said Commissioner J. N.
Tuten, an avowed proponent of
property rights.
In the end, commissioners decided
to leave the standards intact, with
the exception of minor and private
subdivisions, which can apply for a
variance.
"If we fix it right the first time,
hopefully we won't have the prob-

Officials Ready TO Work

On Animal Control Law


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

City and county officials are fi-
nally ready to tackle the issue of
animal control.
SOfficials of both theCity Council
and the County Commission, along
with animal experts, concerned citi-
zens and other interested parties,
will meet 9 a.m. Thursday'in the
courthouse to begin discussing the
issue.
The idea, as expressed by the
various officials, is to revise and ex-
pand both the city and county's ani-
mal control ordinances to make
them more effective.
, "We need to address the issue be-
fore someone else gets hurts or
,killed," is the way Commission
,Chairman Felix Joyner expressed it,
following a recent incident where
several abandoned dogs mauled a
county woman.
S Sheriff.David Hobbs, newly in-
stalled in the office, is supposed to
be a key player in the restructuring


effort, at least where it concerns the
county ordinance.
"The new sheriff has agreed to
work with the county to enforce the
ordinance," Joyner informed the
commission last week.
As presently adopted, the county's
animal control ordinance addresses
only rabid and dangerous dogs, not
loose or nuisance animals.
The ordinance basically places the
monitoring responsibility on
citizens, whose complaint of a sus-
pected rabid or dangerous dogs is
the trigger for initiating an investi-
gation by the Sheriffs Department.
It's then up to the discretion of the
responding deputy to determine if
the animal is indeed rabid or danger-
ous.
Should the deputy determine that
the animal is rabid or dangerous, the
procedure calls for the deputy to no-
tify the city's animal control officer
and have the latter take the appropri-
ate action with regard to the animal.
Animals suspected of rabies are

LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer


A Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) offi-
cer put on administrative leave
pending the outcome of an internal
affairs investigation chose to retire,
rather than being fired, at the con-
clusion of the investigation.
"He was to be terminated and he
requested retirement," Capt. Eric
Johnston said of officer Robert Dan-
iels, a 27-year veteran with the
FWC. "Bottom line, he retired."
The investigation conducted by
the Office of Inspector General of
the FWC found that the allegation of
"conduct unbecoming a public em-
ployee" against Daniels was sus-
tained.
Daniels' troubles began with a
letter he wrote on Oct. 20 of last
year to Circuit Judge L. Ralph
Smith Jr. on behalf of a defendant
the judge was about to sentence.
In the letter, Daniels argued that


defendant Billy Dean, convicted of
animal cruelty for shooting' two
dogs and who also plead no contest
to possession of cannabis with intent
to sell, had suffered enough as a re-
sult of his arrest and the adverse
publicity.
Daniels asked that the judge show
clemency and give Dean "a second
chance."
"He is not a threat to society and
his punishment is self-imposed by
emotional trauma and financial bur-
den," Daniels wrote. "I believe and
hopefully you agree that a just and
fair sentence would be no further
jail time, 1 to 3 years probation, res-
titution for the dogs, community
service to the local humane society,
and random drug testing."
Daniels explained that he had a
long association with Dean, stem-
ming from his law enforcement ac-
tivities and a shared interest in
archeology, artifacts, and the out-
doors.
"Some years ago, I asked Billy if I
could see his artifact collection,"


Daniels wrote. "Billy knew my
reputation for making hundreds of
drug cases in Taylor County. But he
agreed .to show his collection as
long as I called before coming to his
home. He was honest enough to tell
me that he used cannabis and that I
might smell the odor in his dwelling
.arid he preferred that I drop by off-
duty. I told Billy that what he does
in his home in his business and I
would like to see his collection as an
amateur collector, not as a law en-
forcement officer."
The latter statement disturbed the
judge, who expressed concern about
Daniels' recognition of "his status
as a law enforcement officer 24-
hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week",
per the investigation report.
But where Daniels particularly
ruffled feathers was with his state-
ments that the Sheriffs Department
had used the dog shooting incident
as a pretext to search Dean's home
for drugs.

"It's.all part of His ministry," said
Johnson. "Christians are supposed
to encourage each other to keep go-
ing."
He added that he doesn't preach
to people, he prays with them and
tells them stories of his travels.
Johnson also speaks to church con-
gregations on Sundays.
Along his trek, Johnson has met
up with some unsavory characters.
"I get one finger salutes all day
long," said Johnson "I've had peo-
ple drive by and throw trash out the
window at me and I've even had a

He said he began this particular
journey five years ago out of Tia-
wanna, with $1.50 in his pocket left
over from the cost of building the
cross. "Everything I've had along
the way, food, and shelter has been
given to me," said Johnson. "God
said, 'Go out with nothing with
you'." He has had a few of these
cross journeys over the years, but
said this particular one is the first
time that he started out on the road
with nothing. ,
He added that he had not walked
the entire distance across the US.
"People stop and give me rides into

City Observes

Arbor Day

january 21
The City of Monticello will cele-
brate National Arbor Day with tree
plantings at the Oakfield Cemetery,
10 a.m., Friday, Jan. 21.
A variety of oak trees will be
planted and the public is encouraged
to attend the event.
Monticello has been designated a
"Tree City USA" for more than a
decade.
To be eligible for this distinction,
a community must.meet four stan-
dards: it must have a tree board or
beatification committee, a commu-
nity tree care ordinance, a compre-
hensive forestry program, and an
Arbor Day observance.
The proclamation passed by the

supposed to be quarantined for the
required time at the owner's ex-
pense.
The ordinance also calls for dan-
gerous animals to be properly con-
tained on the owners' properties,
although it does not specify any par-
ticular type of enclosure.
In the event the animal has to be
destroyed, the owner is responsible
for the cost. In cases where the own-
ers can not be found, however, the
county is responsible for the cost of
boarding and the euthanasia.,
Off the record, the adv ice to com-
plainants has often been that indi-
viduals have a right to defend their
properties.
Meaning that a possible recourse
is to shoot the offending animal -- a
solution advocated by some previ-


ously on the County Commission.
In the several years since the ordi-
nance was adopted, it has been used
four or five times.
As for the city, it ceased to have
an animal control officer several
years ago, the consequence of al-
leged budgetary constraints. It now
depends on a group of city employ-
ees who alternate the responsibility
as the need arises.
Several years back, the then ani-
mal control officer and a few. others

LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer
Monticello now has its own
Cuban-American restaurant.
La Concha, Spanish for The
Conch, opened Dec. 27 on the west
side of town, off US Highway 90.
Oneri Fleita, with wife, Sharon,
and son, Matt, operates the Cuban-
style coffee/sandwich shop, a la Key
West tradition.
A Key West firefighter for 30
years, Fleita moved to Monticello in
May, following his retirement. He'd
never owned a restaurant before, he
says, but decided that it would be a
good idea to start one here.
Fleita learned to cook from his
Cuban father and American mother
and from preparing breakfasts,
lunches and suppers at the fire sta-
tion while on duty.
"I can cook anything," Fleita says,
adding that in time, and depending
on the local demand, he may offer
more exotic Cuban fare.
For the time being, however, he is
limiting the menu to the lighter side,
including such standards as Media
Noche (essentially a ham, pork and
cheese sandwich), palomilla (a steak
sandwich with a liberal dose of
cooked onions on top) and papa rel-
lena (a meat-stuffed potato).
The restaurant also offers, tasty


guava pastries and, of course, Cuban
coffee.
"I'm trying to make it as Cuban as
possible," Fleita says of the menu.
But whatever possessed him to
move to Monticello from Key West
and start a Cuban-American restau-
rant of all things?
Fleita points to brother-in-law
Barry Kelly, of Coldwell Banker
Kelly & Kelly Properties.
A former Key West resident him-
self, Kelly talked up Monticello's
high points and convinced Fleita
that he needed to move here and
start a Cuban-American restaurant,
the one thing the town lacked.
Consequently, upon retiring,
Fleita purchased a five-acre property
in Cooper's Pond and built a house
there. His plans, he says, are to re-
main here no matter what happens
with the restaurant.
If the business goes well,
however, his idea is to expand the
offerings and the facility.
"I may put tables outside," Fleita
says. "It all depends how it goes.
This is an experiment, un experi-
mento."
As for Key West, he has a daugh-
.ter still there. But Fleita has no plans
to return, even for a visit. Key West
has changed too much for his taste,
he says.
Indeed, it's possible that the town

Commissioners, however, bogged
down again when they started dis-

The first allows residents to put a

The Planning Commission's rec-

with the exception of parcels that

has outgrown its Conch heritage,
ventures Fleita, whose 50 years on
the island qualify him for Conch
status, in his estimation. (Conch is
the colloquialism for native born
Key West people.)
"I certainly consider myself a
Conch," Fleita says, adding that be-
ing a Conch is all about loving and
serving the community, which he
did for 30 years as a firefighter.


A native of Cuba, Fleita came to
Key West in 1957 at the age of
seven when his parent went to work
for the naval base there.
He finds Monticello to be much as
Key West was in the 1950s, when it
was "a friendly and close-knit com-
munity".
As for the restaurant, if the brisk
business that it did on opening and
subsequent days is any indication, it
shows promise of being around a
while.
"The first day was terrific," Fleita
says. "We had 100 to 150 people
come in."
Here's hoping the new enter-
prise buena suerte (good luck).

saliva passed her lips. Furthermore,

The Vice Mayor charged she

He said it looked lilteshe was
gonna spit at him.
So to spit or not to spit seems to
be the question.
Then, in what appears to be a
comment about democracy, if not an
actual civics lessons, the Vice
Mayor said he didn't believe city
government included spitting at


someone."
He's right. There was no mention
of this kind of behavior in my fifth
grade civics lesson or American
government classes in college.
Actually, the Eagle Lake incident
is rather tame. ,.
I know 'cause back in the '60s in a
small South Florida town, the City
Attorney took offense at something
a City Councilman said, and hauled
off and pasted the Councilman in
the nose.
Blood splattered on the Council
table. Women in the audience


shrieked. The police chief jumped
up and seeped unsure as to what to
do.
MeanWhile the City Attorney
calmly took his seat and shuffled
some papers.
The Councilman with the bloody
nose hollered, "He hit me! He hit
me!"
Not a bit rattled, the Mayor
squinted to get a better look at the
man with. the bleeding nose and
said,"Yes, he did."
The whole incident took about
five minutes and then business of
the City resumed.
A true manly man, the Council-
man with the bloody nose held a
handkerchief to his nose and stayed
at his post. ,
.; nl problem was when he voted,
his voice was kinda muffled because
of the handkerchief.
Other than that, things went off
pretty well.
One more thing. From then on
when the Councilman had anything
to say about the City Attorney, he
was very respectful.


Nursing Shortage Is Serious


BY ANN HILLENBRAND
Radford (VA.) University


While perusing the classified, ad-
\emsements for fanuly nurse practi-
tioners, registered nurses and li-
censed' practical 'nurses abound.
lan\ include thousands of dollars
m signing bonuses along with a sal-
ary figure. ;
Competition among healthcare fa-
cilities for qualified nurses is gro%\-
ing due. to, the shortage of nurses
available in the marketplace. Re-
sources need to.be allocated to the
education- of new nurses and reten-
tion of nurses in the workforce or
that integral portion of medical care
.isin jeopardy.
Recently the. State Council of
Higher Education for Virginia cre-
ated a plan to ensure an adequate
supply of nurses in Virginia. By
2020, the state could see a 32 per-
cent shortfall of nurses to serve the
needs of Virginians if no action is
taken.
The plan includes four specific
strategies to meet the state's need
for nurses. The first additional 35.
percent in 12 years.
It suggests the expansion of edu-
cational institutions capacity to pre-
pare students in basic nursing degree
programs by 15 percent more stu-
dents in two years and an addition
35 percent in 12 years.
The plan also wants to increase the
number of graduates from basic and
advance nursing degree programs by
15 percent in five years and addi-
tional 35 percent within 15 years
and improve the retention of Vir-
ginia nurses in the workforce. '
Radford University (Va.) School
of Nursing director Marcella Griggs
says this is a step in the right direc-
tion. But if funds aren't there to of-
fer nursing professors as much


money as they would receive in the
workforce, it will be hard to recruit'
teachers to instruct the Common-
wealth's, and the nation's future
nurses.
Like many nursing schools, RU is
at full capacity because the number
of faculty falls short of meeting the
demand. RU is being proactive in
fighting the nursing shortage and
meeting the demand by hiring seven
new nursing faculty for its nursing
program.
RU can only accept as many quali-
fied nursing applicants as it has re-
sources to serve.
Last year, it could only accept
about half of the qualified, high cali-
ber students who applied for admis-
sion into its nursing program. Hope-
fully that will soon be a thing of the
past. "We want to accept more of
these students into our program. We
want to educate more nurses for the
workforce so there are enough to
take care of all of us in the years to
come," adds Griggs.
American Academy of Nursing
Fellow and RU professor Virginia
Burggraf has seen the need for
nurses grow. "In my 40 year career,
there have been about five to six
shortages," Burggraf said. She says
the shortage right now is due to eco-
nomics, the war, changes in societal
roles of women and in healthcare
policy.
Burggraf says women didn't have
many professional choices in the
1960s but now that's all changed.
"They can be dentists, pilots and
anything they want to be," she said.
"That wasn't even possible 30 years
age." Leaders in the nursing profes-
sion and nursing schools are striving
to make careers in nursing more
popular with both male and female
students.
The population is aging. "The
fastest growing population 40 years


ago was children," said Burggraf,
"but now those under the age of 18
have been surpassed by those over
the age of 65. Medicare was nonex-
istent back then. We didn't seem
concerned about the aging popula-
tion because people were dying in
their late 60s. Now people are living
until they're 100."

Burggraf says RU's School of
Nursing prepares graduates to be
nurses who critically think of care
options for their parents. "Some of
the challenges we get them ready for
now are ethical dilemmas. We are
keeping babies alive at 20 weeks
gestation, making decisions with
parents and making moral value
laden decisions. We are preparing
them to be on ethics committees in
institutional settings and acute care


facilities where they make those de-
cisions," adds Burgraff.
"No matter what area of nursing
they go into, they will be working.
with older people who face deci-
sions for life and end of life. They
will see a great grandparent looking
into the window on the OB unit at
her .30-week gestation great grand-
child wondering if he will live. How
will the nurse handle the great
grandmother whom is now an ar-
chive in that family? We are going
to see that happening more and
more," she adds.
The future is bright for the new
nursing graduate. The jobs are there,
the healthcare industry just needs
qualified people to fill them.
Schools of Nursing need resources
to educate future nurses to do just
that.


Discipline Key To


Better FCAT-Scores


Dear Editor:
With the FCAT approaching, there
is much concern here in Jefferson
County, as there should be.
Our county schools have not fared
well in times past. As retired teach-
ers, we know a large part of the
problem is discipline, or rather the
lack thereof.
Without discipline and attention to
instruction, there can be no aca-
demic learning.
Talk with teachers and determine
for yourself that lack of discipline is
the major handicap for learning.
This starts as early as elementary
school where the foundation for the
"three R's" is laid.
If no started here, then student
drop outs and performance below
grade level only gets worse.
This only defines the problem.


What is the solution? The commu-
nity must be involved. Start with of-
ficials.
Classroom visitations allow visi-
tors to see first hand how students
are acting or reacting to instruction.
Walk the halls and notice the gen-
eral atmosphere. Naturally one
needs to check with principals be-
fore visiting classrooms.
Now the community is defined by
us as the superintendent, School
Board Members, principals, parents
and community members.
This is not an instant remedy.
Rather it will take time to show on
the FCAT and other measures of
academic competence.
The process must start and this is
the first and most important step.

After months of contentious de-.


bate, the School Board reversed it-
self, and voted 3-2 Monday to lease
the former Jefferson County High
School Media Center for use as. a
County Library, to be completed no
'later than Jund 30. 2005, in the
boardroom filled to capacity.
The turning point came about
when Board Member fEd Vollertsen
was elected to the Board, defeating
then Chair, Harriett Cuyler. Vollert-,
sen was in favor of the lease; Cuy-
ler was not.
Terms of the lease were not dis-
cussed at the meeting.

were: Board: Members Franklin
HightoQer,,-Fred Shohier,. and Ed'
Vollertsen. ava ri:
SVoting'nay Were Chair Beverbl

Sloan initially requested the mo-
tion be tabled because of recently
discovered information she said
would impact the issue.
Dick Bailar, representing the Jef-
ferson Education Foundation ad-
dressed the group. and explained


RAY CICHON
Managing Editor

Mike Long, former owner of-
Edenfield's Hardware, recently
earned his high school diploma at
the Adult School, at age 43, after 28
years since he was last in school.
"I can't say too strongly how im-
pressed I am with the way the Adult
School operates, and with the pro-
fessionality of the teachers and
staff," Long said.
He explained: "They made me
comfortable in an uncomfortable I
situation."
It took him one week to complete
:a preliminary test to identify defi-
ciencies and to correct these defi-
ciencies to pass the GED test, he
said.
"Fortunately for me, my wife
home schools our children and I am
i around a learning atmosphere. Eng-
lish was the hardest subject for me,


that a steering committee was
formed to seek' federal funds' for
construction of a new library.
"No state funding is available for
-the construction of a new library,"
Bailar explained, and noted that fed-
eral officials would have to be lob-
bied to seek the necessary funding.
"This, could take five years," Bai-
lar explained, stating that while the
.matter was in the planning stages,
no time frame could be put on it,
aird he advised against tabling the
%ote.


Boland spoke on the issue: "We
should talk to the County Commis-
sion to see if there is not another
building in the county we could
trade for the Media Center.
He stated that with student enroll-
ment dropping, school funding was
also dropping and the district \ would
have no money for raises a'd ex-
-t,- .t i .
penses.
"Declining at the rate of 50 stu-
dents a year, we %ill ha\e no
money," he said.
Sloan stated: "Our opportunin-
school portables are deplorable and
the atmosphere is not conducive to
learning.
"Our focus should be on the sin-
dLIIL'.


Superintendent.Phil Barker stated
that there were two suitable rooms
on the back of the Administration
Building that would be suitable .for
the Opporrnint School, and an im-
provement in facilities.
"We hope that the Opportunity
School does not expand," he said.
(The Opportunith School, is de-
signed for students who are barred
from regular classes for whatever
reason and complete work assigned
by their'teachers, under the supervi-
sion of on site teachers.)
Barker said there were 24 students
in the school from ages 10 upwards.
The Board recently authorized a
class for students under 10, limited
to five students, with a teacher and
an assistant.
A walk-through was set for 1 p.m.
.Wednesday by the Board& to .view
Barker's proposed site for the iOp-
portunit:School:.:;
In his earlier comments about the
Adult School, Boland said he re-
cently met County Commission
Chair Skeet Jo\ ner on the street and
Joyner chided him: "'If you don't
give us the Media Center, we're go-
ing to steal it."
Joyner apologized and said he be-

Long grew up in Arcadia, FL, was
due to graduate from high school in
1980, but instead he left school after
failing the ninth grade and went to
work in the orange groves of South
Florida.
"I married soon after," he said,

For eight years Long worked with
a surveying team, and through on

"Math was always a strong point
of mine and in those days most cal-

Most of the jobs Long held either
didn't require a GED, or substituted
experience, "but I always felt the

Members of the Monticello
Woman's Club enjoyed their Janu-
ary meeting at the clubhouse on East
Pearl Street.
Program Chair Edith Adams in-
vited Chairman of the County Com-
mission Skeet Joyner to speak to the
membership. He gave an enlighten-
ing insight to the goings on in the
City and County.

and purpose of the .committees he
works with, including the Legisla-
tive Committee, Small County Coa-
lition, and the Rural Caucus of the
Florida Association of the Counties.
Just to name a few.
The business portion of the meet-
ing involved the allocation.of funds
raised through recent fundraisers.
Most recently, the Holiday. Cake
Sale was even more successful than
last year.
The membership agreed that funds
from this and other Club fundraisers
will be used to 'enhance the Club
Scholarship program, ard also to
pay for the clubhouse repairs.
Club President Amanda Ouzts
thanked everyone for their contribu-


tions to the fundraising efforts. She
mentioned that nothing can be ac-
complished without every member's
time, talents, and special contribu-
tions.
Mention was made about the
Clubs part in the Watermelon Festi-
val to be held in June. The members
need to decide where they will hold
the Luncheon and Fashion Show
this year.
Ethel Strickland and Lilly Mae
Brumbley prepared a fried chicken
luncheon for those in attendance.

den salad sided with a congealed

Library Issue Resolved

lived Boland took the issue far too
personal. "It was a joke, and I
meant nothing by it," he said.
"The Media Center is not for the
County Commission; it is for the
people of the count-, and so chil-
dren you educate can benefit from
it." .
He reminded Boland that it was
Boland who turned down the Com-
mission's offer of swapping the 4-H
office for the Media Center, though
the matter was never discussed at .a
School Board meeting.
Resident Thomas Love spoke and
said the issue had become conten-
tious and divisive.
"The library is important to the
community and so is the Adult
School," he said. "There is an ur-
gent need in both cases and we have
a solution. The Media Center can

"Both the library and the Adult
School will need other facilities in
the long term, but now it's time to
move forward," he concluded, draw-
ing thunderous applause. '

stated.

'2-7 season after they were defeated
22-20 by Taylor County and de-
feated 38-32 by John Paul II, last

Warriors lost to Taylor county, he
was very impressed with their im-
provement.
"They beat us by 14 points when
we played them before," said Nenn-
stiel. He attributed the close loss to
the Warriors being able to connect
with free throws and a three-point
shot in the end minutes of the game.

with five points, two rebounds, two'
steals; Kyle Peters, five points, five
rebounds, one steal ;and Kyle Barn-

seven rebounds, two steals; Michael
Kinsey, two points; and Bernie
'Henderson, two points, six
rebounds, and two blocked shots.

\Vhen the Warriors faced John

to keep the score within two to three
points right up until the end of the
game.

Nennstiel. "We were only seven
for 23 from the free throw line."

DEBBIE SNAPP
Staff Writer

Local American Cancer Society
volunteers have scheduled a "Blast
From The Past" Relay For Life
Kickoff, Thursday, Jan. 13, at the
Opera House.
Teams of cancer-fighting enthusi-
asts will gather at the Jefferson
County High School track on April
15-16 to show their support in fight-
ing this disease.


The Kickoff begins at 6:15 p.m.,
but community members are invited
to come early for a fundraising din-
ner to benefit the Relay For Life of
Jefferson, beginning at 5:30 p.m.
Dinners will be available at $7
each.
Attendees are invited to learn
more about becoming involved in
the overnight team fundraising event
to honor local cancer survivors,
meet the Relay Steering Committee,
enjoy home-cooked food, and regis-
ter to win special prizes.


Officer Resigns


(Continued From Page 1)
tem call this a 'fishing expedition,"'
Daniels wrote. "I know because re-
gretfully I have been there, done
that. I believe this investigation to
be an act of an insecure and
overzealous Sheriffs Office that acts
to please a few Jefferson County so-
cialites. They could have handled
the dog-killing complaint as a civil
matter."
In fact, Daniels said, rarely did
dog complaints end up in arrests.
Rather, the Sheriffs Department
usiuall handled these cases as civil
matters, % ith the department acting
as a middle manager between the
aggrieved parties.
It was a well-documented fact, he
said, that the county lacked the fi-
nancial resources or the will to
adopt and enforce an adequate ani-
mal control ordinance.
"The county wants to maintain its
rural character and rural people set-
tle their ow n dog problems," Dan-
iels wrote. "I have even been present
when the Sheriff has told people to
take care of free-roaming dog prob-
lems on their own."


According to the investigation re-
port, former Sheriff Ken Fortune
and Major Mike Joyner were par-
ticularly incensed with the latter
statements.
Fortune emphatically denied mak-
ing the statement about telling peo-
ple "to take care of free-roaming
dog problems on their own.".
He told the FWC he did not want
Daniels in the law enforcement
wing of the department.
SJoyner, for his part, took the state-
ment of the fishing expedition and
'overzealous Sheriffs Deparunent as
personal attacks on his credibility
and his supervision, according to the
,investigative report.
The investigation concluded that
Daniels' letter discredited the FWC
:and impaired the officer's ability to
'Work with other law enforcement
agencies in the county.
S"Daniels' right to his personal
opinion was overshadowed, by the
disruption of teamwork he created
for himself and possibly the
agency," the report states. "Team-
work is critical.in law enforcement,
especially in the post 9-11 era."

Teams are encouraged to bring
their $100 registration fee to the
event.
"We're calling on all walkers, can-
cer survivors, community leaders,
team captains, sponsors and hard
workers to become involved with
the Relay," said Event Chair Jaunice
Hagan.
Teams commit to raising $1,000
and to have one person walking the
track at all times, recognizing the
fact that cancer never sleeps.
The Relay theme is "Blast From
The Past," and each team will be
asked to represent a different time
period throughout history. The 16
teams that have already signed up
for the event will have first choice
of time period and campsite.
Nationwide, Relay For Life is
celebrating its 20th anniversary, and
locally, Jefferson will be holding its
fifth event.
The Relay is an 18 hour team
event in which participants walk
around a track relay style and camp
out overnight.
Across the country, the American
Cancer Society seeks to fulfill its
mission to save lives and diminish
suffering from cancer through
community-based programs aimed
at reducing the risk of cancer, de-
tecting cancer as early as possible,
ensuring proper treatment and em-
powering patients facing cancer to
cope with the disease and maintain
the highest possible quality of life.
Relay For Life allows participants
from all backgrounds, including -a-
