MLK Parade

Features

70 Entries


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Despite the cold and wind, the
25th Annual Martin Luther King,
Jr. Parade drew spectators lining
the streets from South Jefferson to
the Recreation Park.
The start of the parade was de-
layed by nearly 20 minutes in pro-
test because only half of South
Jefferson Street was closed for the
parade.
"They closed the whole street for
the Watermelon Festival but we
only had half of the street," said
NAACP President Glyndell
Presley. "It's a disservice to the
King holiday.
"If it were a manpower problem,
Chief Frisby should have let us
know before hand," she added.
"Traffic traveling in two directions
as the people marched could have
been a potentially dangerous situa-
tion.
"We respect and support our law
enforcement and hope that they re-
spect and support us in this kind of
situation," said Presley.
Police Chief David Frisby stated
Tuesday that the loss of overtime
funding for the required officers was
responsible for the short parade.
"I warned the City Council and
Gerrold Austin in October, and
again last month, that we would:
have to run a short parade because I
would only have four officers on
duty covering the event, unless the-
council anted up the funds," he ex-
plained.
Following the parade, festivities
were held in the park. There were
bubble bounces, vendors with
many varieties of wares, and every-
thing to tickle the taste buds from
fried fish, chicken, spiced crab,
French fries, fresh vegetables, na-
chos and drinks.
Cars were parked all along Mi-
ami Scott Drive, at JES and every
available area on side streets and
vacant lots. The multitude, of peo-
ple so thick, maneuvering through
the crowd was almost impossible.
The celebration in the park began
with the JCHS JROTC presenting
the colors, followed by the Pledge
of Allegiance and MLK Committee
Founder Charles Parrish welcomed
the multitude and Vice Mayor Ger-
rold Austin, County Commission
Chairman J. N. "Junior" Tuten and
County Judge Bobby Plaines each
greeted and spoke to the crowd.
Doreena Smith recited MLK's
speech, "I Have Dream", several
selections were presented by the
JCHS Boys and Girls Club Choir,
accompanied by Anthony Williams
on piano, and Arsenio Bright re-
cited, "I Have a Dream".
Selections were presented by John
Beecham and Fred and Barbara
Williams, Kass Brooks recited a
combination of "I Have a Dream"
and "The Morning Time", by Rev-
erend Jesse Jackson.
Stephanie Faison recited original
poetry and selections were also per-
formed by, LaTrecha Scott, Del-
wyn, Erica and Eric Harris, Barbara
Crumity, Elizabeth Dill MBC
Choir, Donald Blount, Laurenda
Cuyler, the FMB Praise team,. Rev-
erend Issac Manning, Saint Phil-
lips AME Church Choir #3 and the
St. Phillips AME Mass Choir with
Amery Walker.

tional rap, a fashion show was put-

LAZARO ALEMAN

After a much ballyhooed meeting
with city officials to fashion a more
responsive animal-control ordi-
nance, county officials decided last
week that the present ordinance
works well enough.
Commissioners conceded that
adoption of a more comprehensive
animal-control ordinance is only a
matter of time, given the county's
growing population.
But for the time being -- given
the county's financial situation -- the
existing ordinance is the best that
can be had, they said.
"We don't need regulations that
we can't afford to enforce," Com-
mission Chairman Felix Joyner said
at one point. "I don't know what we
can do other than what we're doing
now, which is to let it be complaint-
driven and let the sheriff handle it."
Mayor Julie Conley concurred.
"There's no need to have a fancy
ordinance that you can't afford or
enforce," she said.
She suggested, however, that
county officials might want to com-
bat the prevailing perception among
residents that the county isn't re-


sponsive to the issue.
"Maybe more publicity is
needed," Conley said.
The present ordinance addresses
dangerous animals only, not nui-
sance animals. It is also complaint-
driven, meaning that a citizen must
file a complaint before the authori-
ties will take action.
Since its adoption in 2000 -- af-
ter almost two years of discussion --
the ordinance has been applied an
average of once a year.
In each case, "we've been able to
work it out," County Attorney Buck
Bird told commissioners.
The only new wrinkle Thursday
was Sheriff David Hobbs' assurance
that his department will enforce the
ordinance more aggressively.
"With respect to dangerous ani-
mals, I can assure you that this will
be a priority," Hobbs said. "If we
keep the same ordinance, I will tell
my people that it is a priority. It
won't be shuffled to the back."
As for the incident that triggered
the review of the ordinance -- the
mauling of a county woman by a
pack of abandoned dogs -- Hobbs
said the Sheriffs Department had
handled the incident appropriately.
He said there was nothing he would

Dixie Field Trials


Sees Entries Rise


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

It's that time of year again, when
Dixie Plantation hosts its annual
SContinental Field Trials.
Make that the 110th Continental,
which started Monday and is ex-
pected to conclude Jan. 30 --
weather permitting.
Actually, what started Monday was
the derby portion of the competition,
which tests dogs two years and
younger. Come Friday, the all-age
competition featuring the big dogs
begins.
And this year, entries are up in
both events, according to Dottie
Taylor, secretary at Dixie
Plantation.
Taylor reports 60 entries in the
derby competition and 114 in the
all-age. That's up from last year's
figures of 47 entries in the derby
and 96 in the all-age.
The increased participation is part
of a growing trend that the competi-


tions have been enjoying in the last
several years, thanks to the steward-
ship of the Geraldine C.M. Living-
ston. Foundation and Plantation
Manager and Continental Field Trial
Club President Joe Milligan.
Among other things, Milligan and
the foundation have implemented
various programs and best manage-
ment practices that have enhanced
the plantation grounds and increased
the wild bird population.
The Continental, in fact, is recog-
nized as the premier wild-bird field
trial in the country, second only to
the National Championship in
Grand Junction, TN.
"This trial is run entirely on native
quail," notes Barbara Teare, contrib-
uting editor to Field Trial Magazine.
"It's an element for these dogs that
doesn't exist in other trials where
they are run on basically tamed or
released birds.
"Others may simulate a wild bird
situation, but they are not the same
thing. This trial on this plantation

Local Legislative Committee
member Kim Barnhill reported
Monday that the group's meeting
with Gov. Jeb Bush last Thursday
went extremely well.
"It was quite successful in that we
brought our county's concerns to
him," Barnhill said. "He was very
attentive. He understands our plight
and wants to help us."
One thing the governor made
clear is that he will veto any project


that he considers a turkey, Barnhill
said. That means projects that don't
have a statewide benefit, such as the
expansion of the Health Department
building and the extension of sewer
service into Cooper's Pond.
"He wants us to focus on the Ru-
ral Initiative, which would afford
Jefferson County $560,000 every
year in recurring funds," Barnhill
said.
The money, according to Barn-
hill, would have no strings attached
and would be left to the discretion
of the local authorities to decide

the explanation of each scene given
by the performers prior to its per-.
fbrmance, thus setting the mood for
the piece to be sung.
For this reviewer, the tour de force
of the evening came late in the sec-
ond act, when Tenor Aaron Pegram
performed the aria, "Ah! Mes
Amis," from Donizetti's "Daughter
of the Regiment.
Considered a killer aria for tenors,
the piece' contains nine consecutive
high C's, which Pegram hit right on
target in a performance worthy of a
standing ovation.
Donizetti, known'for his bel canto
style (beautiful music) is at his best
in this selection.

Perhaps the best ensemble of the
evening came from the "Merry
Widow," in which each performer
was able to showcase his/her vocal
range, while singing in English.
Holloway was at his baritone best
in a duet from Mozart's "Don
Giovanni," which produced vocal
pyrotechnics when combined with
the mezzo voice of Ariza. .-
Holloway, throughout the-
evening, exhibited a Puckish quality


to his stage presence, whether dis-
played by the raise of an eyebrow or
an understated gesture.
This added to the performance, as
opera singers are sometimes consid-
ered wooden in acting ability while
concentrating on vocal techniques.
A self proclaimed "ham," Hollo-
way, added to the performances
with his actions.
Zilioli and Ariza showcased their
voices well in the duet "We Are
Women," from "Candide."
In concert opera style with per-
formers supplying props are needed,
the singers entertained in seemingly
effortless style.
Accompanist Julie Tompkins kept
all on cue with her superb execution
of the complex notations, at the
Baldwin Grand.
She slid from tempo to tempo,
composer to composer, without a
flaw, and deserves an award for her
constant performance throughout.
While performers were able to al-
ternate, Tompkins remained con-
stant at the piano all evening and
never missed a note..
S Kudos to all for an exhilarating
evening.

When it comes to financial plan-
ning, not all consumers approach
.the process the same way.
According to a recent Certified Fi-
Aancial Planner Board of Standards,
Inc. (CFP Board) survey, the public
1alls into three distinct types regard-
:ing its.attitudes about financial plan-
ding. The "types" are:'
S* 'Worriers" Thirty-nine percent
:of consumers act as their own finan-
qlal planner despite their discomfort
;$ the role and lack of confidence.
"Independents" Thirty-three
percentt of consumers prefer to make
financial decisions w without profes-
4onal help.
v "Help Wanteds" Twenty-eight
percent of consumers enthusiasti-
ally seek financial advice for long-
Arm strategy from others.
With 72 percent of the public con-
ucting its own financial planning,
zFP Board believes that consumers
teed to understand the financial
tanning process." -
S"Financial planning is something
fiat many people can do on their

'ige, time and self-discipline to do
, properly," said Gary Diffendaffer,

five step process:
State goals and gather data. Start
by defining specific personal and fi-

stand your time frame for results
and define how you feel about tak-

Next, decide what information is
needed and then collect or develop
the relevant data about your situa-

to address.
Evaluate your financial status.
You should analyze your data and
the assumptions you use to assess
your current,situation and determi-

your goals with your current course
of action.
This could include analyzing and
projecting assets, liabilities, cash
flow, current insurance coverage, in-
vestments or tax strategies.
Develop financial planning rec-
ommendations. This involves devel-
oping various financial .strategies
that might meet specific goals.
Weigh your options and examine
each strategy's pros and cons
against,your goals and priorities and
then select the options that seem to

Pundit Destroyed His Credibility


So the U.S. Department of Educa-
tion gave conservative conumentator
Armstrong Williams $240.000 to
promote President Bush's No Child
Left Behind polices. What a fiasco!
Williams touted the policy on his
TV show and in his syndicated col-
umn, never mentioning, of course,.
that he was a paid flack.
Picking up a $240,000 check for
flogging a government policy under
the guise of fair and impartial com-
ment is a no-no for both columnists
and the Administration.
It is unethical for the columnist
and illegal for the government.
In 40 years of newspapering, I
only had two chances to make any
serious fast money. I blew 'em both!
During a red hot commission race
in Miami. a candidate wanted-e to.
have our newspaper group run dirt
on his opponent. --
He came to my office with several
allegations about his opponent that,
frankly, smelled. They were vicious
and scurrilous.

I don't want your money, I told

I've had to deal with irate Dads

All these things were the fault of

SThe best antidote to this kind. of
nonsense is accuracy and integrity.
Taking money and shilling for a
cause, no matter how noble the

to build credibility.


Skipping Breakfast Is Harmful


As debate continues on the Obe-
sity epidemic in the United States,
Americans may not have to look
much further than the breakfast ta-
ble to find a possible solution.

A new consumer survey reveals
alarming statistics showing that even
though almost all Americans (96
percent )believe consuming a nutri-
tious breakfast is an important part
of a healthy lifestyle, their behavior,
demonstrates otherwise.
Even more daunting is the fact
that Americans have raised a gen-
eration that does not eat breakfast.
Young adults are even more
likely to spend less time eating
breakfast or to skip breakfast alto-
gether than their older counterparts,
according to the State of the
American Breakfast survey, which
looked at the breakfast habits and
trends of American adults.


The survey was conducted by
KRC Research on behalf of Amer-
ica's Breakfast Council (ABC), a
think tank of health professionals
dedicated to demonstrating the
benefits of a nutritious) well-
balanced breakfast.
"People who eat a well-balanced
breakfast tend to have more nutri-
tious diets than those who skip
breakfast regularly, Breakfast -eat-
ers typically consume foods
higher in fiber, vitamins and miner-
als and avoid foods high in satu-
rated fat and cholesterol," said Liz
Weiss, M.S., R.D., a registered dieti-
tian specializing in health and nutri-
tion and an ABC member.
Studies also show that eating a
well-balanced breakfast may reduce
the risk of type 2 diabetes, and
those who skip breakfast are more
than four times as likely to be
obese compared to individuals who


eat breakfast regularly.
"Americans need to make
eating a healthy breakfast part of
their daily morning ritual," said
Gail Rampersaud, R. D. "By eating
a nutrient-rich meal packed with
whole grains, protein, fruit or
natural fruit juices, like 100 percent
orange juice, they can get the
nutrition they need to get their day
off to a healthy start."
Americans know every day should
be a breakfast day bit according to
the' survey, almost one-third of
Americans fall short of this goal by
choosing not to eat breakfast every
morning. Additionally, 25 percent
say they eat breakfast only three out
of five weekdays.
When Americans do eat breakfast,
they're racing to finish.
More than half (53 percent) say
they devote less than 15 minutes to


nutrients that propel them through
their day.
In addition, 47 percent say that
when they skip breakfast, it's
because they do not have enough
time or feel ,that it is too
inconvenient.
"Breakfast is becoming .some-
thing Americans do in between im-
portant things not something that
alone merits importance." said
Weiss. "They need to realize that a
healthy breakfast is an important
part of leading a healthy lifestyle,"
According to Weiss, there are a
number of quick, easy changes
Americans can make to break the
cycle of poor breakfast habits. Just
follow the ABC's:
Assess breakfast habits. Are you
regularly eating breakfast? How
could you ad just your choices to

'Strain Sensitive Paint' Touted


BY AARON HOOVER
University of Florida

A new technique with the potential
to significantly improve the design
and manufacturing process for auto-
mobile parts may benefit consumers
fed up with frequent recalls and re-
pairs.
In research sponsored by a major


auto parts manufacturer, a team of
University of Florida engineers has
found a way to use luminescent, or
light-emitting, paint to highlight
weaknesses and flaws in prototype
versions of drive shafts, axles and
numerous other parts. The technique
could make parts safer less expen-
sive and longer-lasting.
;"The industrial significance of this
technique is hard to overstate," said


Peter Ifju, a UF associate professor
of mechanical and aerospace engi-
neering and one of the inventors. "If
the industry is willing and the econ-
omy allows it, this could become
routine in the ground transportation
and air transportation manufacturing
industries."
The research is described in pa-


American Institute of Aeronautics
and Astronautics Journal. The tech-
nique is being tested by Visteon, a
$17 billion parts company that has
spent $2 million on the UF research
since 1997.
A key step in designing parts is
building and testing prototypes to
discover flaws or problems before a

Resident Praises Work Of Officer


Dear Editor:
It's really ironic that without a
doubt the toughest game warden in
North Florida was forced to retire
from his job because of an act of hu-
man kindness, asked of him by a de-
fendant's pleading mother.
If the justice system failed anyone
here, it failed Officer Robert
Daniels.


SRegretfully, our region has lost
one its best law enforcement offi-
cers.

It's no surprise that many will be
happy that he's gone, but those who
know all the facts see the situation
for what it truly was, petty inter-
agency politics.
Truth be said, Daniels probably


did his job too well. I wonder how
many of us can say that? It would be
wise for all field law enforcement
professionals to let what the system
did to Officer Daniels be a clear
warning that in law enforcement,
good deeds never go unpunished.
I would like to personally say
thank you to Officer Daniels for his
dedicated service to our region, and


wish him all the best in his well
earned retirement.
Those of us who know him have a
tremendous respect for the job he
did for the people of the State of
Florida.
He is someone who at the end of
Shis workday could truthfully say: "I
did my best for the people I served."

'Strain Sensitive Paint'


(Continued From Page 4)
part is mass produced. Whether a bi-
cycle frame, airplane wheel or en-
gine cam shaft, an important
element of these tests is determining
how much stress or strain the part
sustains, so that engineers can de-
sign it to function over the lifetime
of a car or machine. Stress is a
measure of force intensity, or force
per unit area, while strain measures
deformation, or movement.
A number of techniques are used
to measure stress, including the
strain gauge, a decades-old device
that functions something like a
miniature scale. What many tech-
niques have in common, however,
is they take a measurement only at
one specific point, have poor resolu-
tion for larger areas, or require ex-
pensive and cumbersome
equipment. These shortcomings
raise the potential for designs to
miss a "hot spot" -- a location on the
part that may appear normal to the
eye and to computer-aided or
"CAD" designs, but that actually ex-
periences significant and potentially
failure-level stress.
"Parts makers don't want that part
to go out and fail two years down
the road," said Paul Hubner, a UF
adjunct assistant professor of me-
chanical and aerospace engineering.
"The flip side is thatthey don't want
to overdesign and put too much re-
inforcement into a part, because if
they build a million parts, it'll cost
them more than it should have."
UF's "strain-sensitive" coating
gives designers a way to accurately
measure the stresses applied to large
areas or the entire part. That not
only highlights potential flaws in a
prototype, it helps designers refine
their computer-design models,
which makes them better at design-
ing the next part.
Sprayed on with a standard com-
mercial spray gun, the coating re-


sembles glossy reddish paint. It is
actually a potent mixture of light-
emitting dyes an epoxies developed
by UF chemistry professor Kirk
Schanze and other researchers in his
laboratory.
Designers spray on the paint, dry
it, then flip on a blue or ultraviolet
light. As the light transmits through
the epoxies, it polarization changes
in direct proportion to the amount of
strain the part is experiencing. The
light-emitting chemicals then trans-
mit these polarization differences,
which are invisible to the human
eye, to a digital camera and com-
puter. The result is a graphic, 3-D
map of the stress levels sustained
over the entire coating.
Ifju and Hubner said they have
tested the technique on 3-D parts
ranging from a few inches in size to
2 square feet, but nothing restricts it
from being used on even larger ob-
jects potentially even an entire car
frame. So far the coating has proven
effective in experimental tests aimed
at identifying previously recognized
hot spots on prototype parts, such as
a suspension control arm for a Ca-
dillac sedan, a drive shaft for a Jeep
Cherokee and a strut dome for a
Prosche SUV, they said.
Another benefit is that the tech-
nique is much faster then others,
Hubner said. The system can pro-
vide a nearly complete picture to de-
signers in about three days, while it
takes a month for other techniques,
he said.
The result is that parts can be de-
signed and built more quickly,
which has the potential to translate
into cost savings for consumers,
Hubner said. The UF-patented tech-
nique may also make parts more du-
rable, reducing the number of
failures and recalls. Visteon, which
holds the license on the technology,
is using it on a limited basis, Ifju
said.

gies that I have used to consult with
first year teachers and beginning
teachers at our school," Kelly said.
She said peer reviews are always
learning experiences for her, and she
learns by evaluating others.
Kelly believes strongly in the
study groups in place at HMS. This
is a group of teachers focusing on
learning new strategies to increase
student achievement, and exchange
ideas and instructional practices.
"My goal is to teach the whole
child," Kelly said. "This is simply a
process of helping each students to
become well rounded.
"To accomplish this, I maintain an
atmosphere of warmth in my class
to offer encouragement daily, and
motivate students to set goals and
dreams realistically about their fu-
tures.
Kelly believes that children who
begin to read in early grades are
more likely to become better learn-
ers throughout school years and be-
yond.
It is essential that students work
consistently to become better read-
ers and this message should be en-
forced at school and at home.


She has taught 31 years, 25 of
them in Florida, and 16 years at

She is teaching Specific Learning

Principal Juliette Jackson said of
Kelly: "Her positive attitude and
love of children is reflected in the
outstanding quality of the program
of Language Arts and Writing in-
struction that she has maintained at
HMS.
"She demonstrates the highest
level of professional commitment
and competency in her work with
students and colleagues, and gives
generously of her time, often work-
ing beyond the school day."
Her colleague Celestine Thomas
said of Kelly: "She is poised, intelli-
gent, articulate, dependable, dedi-
cated, and has documented leader-
ship skills."
Kelly also demonstrates patience,
excellent teaching skills, and inno-
vative teaching techniques in the

wide committees.

Ebberbach Donates Prizes

TO Club's Incentive Program


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer
Program Founder Scottie Ebber-
bach, recently donated a variety of
items to be used as prizes for the
children, at the Boys and Girls Club,
in an incentive program.
This move was prompted after the
initial donation by Ebberbach was
exhausted.
Donated items included toys,
games, dolls, stuffed animals,
radios, Walkman's and practically
'any other items that would spark a
youngster's attention.
SEbberbach said that he would like
to implement "Barter.Dollars" into
the program, so the children would-
not only be rewarded for good con-
duct and behavior, but would also
learn how to properly handle
money.
"I have thousands of the Barter
Dollars," said Ebberbach. "And
when it comes to more prizes for the
children,I'm trying to get local busi-


nesses involved in donating."
He said that he would someday
like to see the program go world-
-wide to all 3,000 boys and girls
clubs throughout the world. "My
main focus is to help the children,"
he added.
Items previously donated by
Ebberbach were. on display in a
glass case near the entrance for
youth to look at and earn through
points given for good merit..
Plush animals, dolls, games, ra-
dios, cars, and more all lay in wait
Sof a young owner to earn them.
Each good deed, completing home-
work, being on the honor roll or
showing good, conduct, both at
home and school, are all tasks that
earn points toward the different
items.
But the many,iiany donated items,
went out to the children at a high
rate, of speed, leaving the program
Awaiting another donation from
Ebberbach before it could continue.

Ebberbach explained, "Kids want
stuff, if you put stuff in front of
them, they'll do whatever they have
to, to get it.
"It's like adults having jobs.
They aren't given their pay checks.
They earn them. It's the same with
this. We're not giving the stuff to
the kids. They're earning it.
"It will improve their goal setting
skills and give them levels of ac-
complishment," he added.
Boys and Girls Club Director
Gerrold Austin said the incentive
program ties in with the Boys and
Girls Club Mission Statement, "To,
inspire and enable all youth, espe-.
cially those from disadvantaged
circumstances to realize their full
potential as caring and production
citizens;"

the vegetables and desserts.
More than 124 seniors attended
the annual event.
Another event was the collection

than 100 pounds of toiletry items

erans Hospital in Lake City Friday.

The Lady Bees split their last
two games and stand at 3-4 for the
season.
The Ladies fell to the Quincy
Shanks for a 47-30 loss and came
back to take a 21-14 victory from
Suwannee.
The scoring leader in both games
was Keneshia Coates with 17 and
nine, followed by Latoya Footman
in both games with 10, and eight.
Between the two of them, they
scored 27 of the 30 points, Majetta
Jefferson added three.
Coach Corinne Stephens said the
Lady Bees started off slow in the
first half, scoring only 10 points,


but fought back to make the score
respectable.
Stephens said that against Suwan-
nee, the Lady Bees came out
strong, taking a lead early that was
never relinquished.
She added that the difference in
the game was the defensive play.
"The entire team was able to see
playing time and all played good
on the defensive end of the court,"
said Stephens.
In addition to Coates and Foot-
man, Jefferson and Meresha Bar-
rington tallied points.

Coates and Amanda Mitchell
caused numerous turnovers that re-
sulted in points and Jefferson and
Footman were able to control the
boards, said Stephens.

scoring shots. "We played really
good defensively," he concluded.


Dog Law Left Intact

have done differently, had he been
in charge at the time.
City Superintendent Don Ander-
son and Commissioners Jerry Sut-
phin along suggested changes to the
ordinance.
Anderson thought the ordinance
should address wolf-hybrids -- dogs
that have wolf in them and that are
becoming ever more popular with
residents.
"A lot of people are buying wolf-
hybrids in the city," Anderson said.
"It's a dangerous situation."
He also thought the penalties for
violations should be higher.
"The only way you're going to
stop some people from letting their
animals go wild is to impose a
heavy fine on them the first time,"
Anderson said.


Sutphin wanted the ordinance ex-
panded to address nuisance animals.
"The biggest thing the county
needs to deal with is the nuisance
animals," he said. "We have the or-
dinance to deal with dangerous ani--
mals. We need to address nuisance
animals."
Sutphin also thought the county
should designate a group or an indi-
vidual to deal with animal control.
As a former deputy, he could-
vouch for the fact that dog comi-
plaints were not a high priority for
sheriff departments, he said. Nor
.should they be.
"You can't expect the police, sher-
iff or water employees to do animal
control," Sutphin said. "You need-
special equipment and special ex-
pertise to handle the animals."

Dog Law
(Continued From Page 10)
One possibility, he suggested, was
for the Humane Society to take over
the function of animal control for
the county. Perhaps, the county
needed to open negotiations with the
organization to explore the possibil-
ity, he said.
Commissioner J. N. Tuten op-
posed the idea.
"I was told straight up that they
don't have the facility to deal with
dangerous animals," Tuten said.
"I was talking about nuisance ani-
mals," Sutphin said.
"I think we need to leave nuisance
animals alone," Tuten said. "The
problem is that Jefferson County
can't afford to patrol the roads and
byways for nuisance animals, due to
the financial restraints in this com-
munity.
He thought existing ordinance
"has worked in the past and we need
to keep it, given our restraints. It's
not the best, but it's working."


Rikki Roccanti scored nine points;
Day, one point, 10 rebounds; Mur-
phy, two points; Sapp, nine points,
five rebounds; and Bethany Saun-
ders, three assists, five steals.
