Reception Will Honor

Four Lawmakers' Visit


MEMBERS of the Jefferson County Legislative Committee
met with the governor last week to plead the county's
case. The members report the audience went well, but the
governor encouraged them to push for passage of his Rural


Initiative. From left, David Frisby, Curt Kiser, Jerry

The Jefferson County legislative
lobbying committee will host a
small reception in honor of lawmak-
ers 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the Opera
House. The public is invited to at-
tend.
Following the reception, which
will include refreshments and appe-
tizers, the legislative delegation will
hold a public hearing.
The legislative delegation consists
of State Senators Al Lawson and
Nancy Argenziano and State House
Representatives Will Kendrick and
Loranne Ausley.
The four lawmakers will discuss


the pressing issues of the coming
legislative session, as well as solicit
input on the issues of concern here.
Local officials are sure to present
the lawmakers with a list of the pet
projects the community wants
funded, including the industrial park
upgrade and the Cooper's Pond
sewer extension project.
Local officials are also sure to
press the legislators to approve the
governor's Rural Initiative, which
promises to be beneficial to small
rural counties.
Members of the local legislative
lobbying committee met with Gov,
Jeb Bush last week and the governor
impressed on them the need to push
for passage of the measure in the
Legislature.


2 More Major Developments




Slated For Planners' Review


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

The Planning Commission is
.scheduled to take up two
noteworthy developments at its Feb.
:10 meeting.
The first is a large residential
subdivision in the Lloyd area, to be
called Oak Hill Farms Subdivision.
SThe second is a training center for
students in the construction
industry. The latter facility,,to be
:called the Future Builders of
America Training Center, is slated
for a 477-acre property in -the
southern part of the county, near the
Leon County line.
The Oak Hill Farms Subdivision
will take up 351 acres owned 'by
Beth L. Timm. The property, south
of Lloyd and east of SR-59, is zoned
agriculture. Jeff Ard, the developer,
proposes subdividing the parcel into
109 single-family lots.
According to the preliminary plat
narrative submitted to the Planning
Department, the subdivision will
consists of 26 lots that are three
acres -or larger and 83 lots that will
range from a minimum of one acre
to just below three acres.
Sewer and water 'for the
development will consist of wells


One is Large Subdivision,

Two Is A Training Center,


and septic tanks. The roadways and
storm water management system
will be privately owned and
maintained.
According to the developer, the
storm water management system
\ Ill conformnn with the natural drain-
age patterns of the area.
The developer proposes con-
structing a storm water management
facility at the southwest corner of
the development, adjacent to the
SR-59 right-of-way. This facility
will treat and attenuate the storm
water that discharges from the prop-
erty into the state right-of-way.
Other areas of the project will
employ natural drainage features,
enhanced by run-off buffers, road-
side swale treatment and other stan-
dard practices for the attenuation
and filtration of storm water.
The Florida Home Builders Asso-
ciation Foundation (FHBA) is be-
hind the second project, which
involves a 477-acre parcel at the in-
tersection, of the Natural Bridge
Road and the Jefferson/Leon County
line..


The FHBA is seeking a special ex-
ception to the Ag-20 designation
(one dwelling per 20 acres) to con-
struct a meetifig room and some 24
cottages for outdoor recreational use
by youths interested in pursuing
home-building careers.
According to the developer's-
project narrative, the cottages will
provide sleeping accommodations
and rest rooms for the youth and the
training staff, who will use the facil-
ity on different occasions through-
out the year.
In the off-months, the FHBA
plans to use the facilities for its re-
gional meetings or allow other or-
ganizations, and associations to hold
their functions there.
The FHBA proposes utilizing an
Existing dirt road off the Natural
SBridge Road to serve the site. The
plan is to widened the road to ac-
commodate two-way traffic but
leave it unpaved.
Per the project narrative, the road-
way, the maintenance shed, the cot-
tages and the outdoor recreational
fields will be located outside of any


environmentally sensitive land. The
meeting room, meanwhile, will be
constructed on an extension of land
that juts into a small lake on the
property.
The FHBA training program
aims to encourage youths to pursue
a career in the construction industry.
The FHBA foundation has three
stated goals. These goals are: to pro-
vide scholarships for deserving stu-
dents who are seeking a career in
the trades and construction industry;
to create a program at both the state
and national levels that encourages
high school and college students to
participate in the construction indus-
try; and to establish a training center
that provides a summer-camp type
atmosphere for the Future Builders
of America program.
"It is our hope that the camp will
eventually be opened for use by cor-
porations, churches, families, etc.,"
states the project narrative. "There
will be a building dedicated for
workmanship endeavors, such as
learning how to use power tools,
"building picnic tables, doghouses
etc.
"The camp emphasizes the class-
room portion of the learning. In
other words, while the students will
have some hands-on application,

Joyner To Step Down

As Sheriff Dept. Major


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Major Mike Joyner is leaving the
Sheriffs Department effective Jan.
31.
His actual retirement date is not
until sometime in March, but Joyner
will be using up accumulated off-
time in the interim.
"Thirty-two years in law enforce-
ment is a long time," Joyner said
initially, in response to the question
of why he was leaving the depart-
ment.
As it was, he had been planning
to retire in August, .he added.

What part, if any, did the election
of Sheriff David Hobbs play in his
decision to speed up his retirement?
"I have nothing bad to say about
Sheriff Hobbs," Joyner said of the
new sheriff, who participated in the
interview. "But I think it's better for
the department'if I leave now and let
Hobbs bring whoever he wants to be
his under-sheriff and that he can
mold to his liking. I think that's
fair."
Hobbs, for his part, praised Joy-
ner's dedication and
professionalism.
"I compliment his dedicated serv-
ice to the county and the fact that he

...vows he won't cut his ties
with law enforcement or the
community


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

The Health Department on Tues-
day will host the second of a series
of planned workshops that aim to
explore the strategies the commu-
nity needs to develop to improve the
overall health of its residents.
"The idea is to have all the deci-
sion makers in the community sit
around the table and decide what the
issues are and what should be the
priorities," relates Health Depart-
ment Director Kim Barnhill, organ-
izer of the program.


Participating in Tuesday's discus-
sion will be the Apalachee Regional
Planning Council (ARPC), which
Barnhill invited for its expertise in
the area of recreational land acquisi-
tion grants.
Among the ideas that Barnhill
wants to explore is the possibility of
the county acquiring additional land
to augment its recreation park. Her
hope is that education, combined
with the availability of more recrea-
tional space, will lead to increased
physical activity, which ultimately
translates into improved health.
"We want to call attention to the
need for more physical activity and


how that can impact your health in
later life," Barnhill says.
Among the questions the work-
shop will attempt to answer are:
What does the community think
needs to be done to make people
more active? And what can be done
to decrease the number of automo-
bile accidents, especially among the
young?
"If we all work together, we can
decide on the strategies that will
make this community better," Barn-
hill says.
She makes the point that $66 mil-
lion are available statewide for com-

Three Legged Dog, Kay,


Has Permanent Home

FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer


Among the successful adoption
stories of the Humane Society, is the
story of Kay, who lost her front leg
from extended abuse.
Kay has been recently adopted by
county resident Bobby Davis, who
said he couldn't have found a better
dog.
. Severe abuse and excessive nerve
damage necessitated the amputa-
tion of her left-front leg.
Davis said he was prompted to
adopt another pet, after his little
dog of 14 years passed away.
"I wanted to give another dog a
chance to get going in life," said
Davis. "I just.wanted to adopt a lit-
tle dog that was something special,
and she is."
SHe said that after losing his previ-
ous dog, he wanted to find another
small breed dog to keep his Jack
Russell, Jack, company.
: "I went to the shelter here," said
Davis, "but I didn't see anything I
vranted and then Martha Jean Mar-


"I MAY ONLY be running on three cylinders, but I can sure
outrun you," says Kay, who lost her front leg as a result of
long abuse. (News Photo)

Suzanne Murphy became inter-
ested in photography approxi-
iately 10 years ago, because she
4ad always wanted to be an artist.
'But I can't draw and I can't paint,"
said Murphy. So she compromised,
and began taking black and white
photographs and drawing and then
Aand painting them, which she still
continues to do. "One thing led to
another." said NMurphy
She shoors many kinds of pho-
jographs, but her favorite subject is
people. "I'm a people shooter, ch'il-:
lren, weddings, and the like. I like
to have faces in my photos."
SMurphy also shoots scenic, his-
torical, reunions, school photos,
animals, childbirths. You name it
ind she has shot it.
S Murphy has postcards she has
photographed. There are two of
tiem. The first one is an aerial
view of the Jefferson County
courthouse, and the other has five
(f Monticello's historical sites. She
'kas commissioned to shoot the
photographs by Monticello Florist,
and the cards are available both
tiere and at the Chamber of Com-
aierce.
The County Art Guild has many
f .her historical posters on display
df photographs she had taken, one
df which was the locally famous
'~ainted Lady," former Durst
ltome, before it was destroyed by
fire.
SShe also shoots family reunions,


weddings (providing albums on re-
quest), sporting events, family and
individual portraits in color, black
and white and old fashioned sepia
tones.
She has also shot a horse for a
magazine,, a bridal shot or "Recep-
tions For You" which was repro-
duced in Georgia's Bridal Revue,
and has shot historic homes and lo-
cations for a. historical publication.
"In this business, you have to be
versatile," said Murphy. She added
that she also shoots slide shows
upon request.
Murph\ hopes';that repair t' her
studio, located on West US-90, will
be corhiilete withihtffiTri exf c-diple "-
of weeks.
Hurricane Frances was responsi-
ble for extensive damage to the stu-
dio. "We were the hardest hit in the
area and have had to replace the
roof, ceiling, floors, and one wall,"
she recalled.
"When an 18,000 pound poplar
tree fell on the studio, we had to cut
our way in and hire 'cranes to come
and move it.'
In an ironic twist, Murphy has
since had the tree milled into lum-
ber and used the lumber to build
new benches for her photography
sites at her studio.
Though the studio could not be
used, she continued to photograph.
She will celebrate a grand.opening
for the new studio some time next
month.
Murphy is available for shoots
seven days a week, 24 hours per,
day and can be contacted at 997-
4896.


tin (who had been fostering Kay)
pulled in with Kay in the car.
"I thought it was her dog, but
then I found out that she was avail-
able," he added. "I had Jack in my
vehicle, we put them together to
see how they would get along and
they got along great," said Davis.
He added that when Kay arrived
at her new home, complete with 2
1/2 fenced acres, she took off run-
ning and exploring. Davis
quipped, "It's a good thing she's
only running on three cylinders, if
she were running on all four, we'd
never be able to keep up with her.
She really scoots along."
Davis said that Kay is thoroughly
enjoying her new home. "She's
good in the house, intelligent, well
mannered, loves being outside, car
riding and rides with me on the
golf cart to go feed the mules," he
added.
He has since provided her with
her own doggie bed, rawhide
chews, toys and a lot of love.
| When he thought of the abuse
that Kay had endured, resulting in
her injury, he said, "I don't see how
someone could have done anything
* like that to her. It's a shame that
people get away with stuff like
Thatt"
Davis remarked: "I would have
never thought of adopting a three-
Slegged dog, but after meeting her, I
figured why not? She's going to
have a good, happy life and she'll
be OK."

Humane Society

Files Up To Date


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Among topics discussed at the
meeting of the Humane Society
Monday\ evening-were needs, mnem-.
berships, and foster homes.
Martha Canady advised members
that the files for 2004 and for all
the previous years, had been
cleaned up and stored b. year in
boxes.
.She said that a new. system had
been set up so that the files are eas-
ily accessible to those who need to
review the year noted.
The new system setup includes
major files, corporate, financial,
IRS and additional individual files.
Canady said the society was cur-
tently at 192 members and that the
Membership drive will continue
throughout the month.
SThe goal of the club is to reach at
last 400 members by the end of
the month.
I Maha Jean Martin advised that
there are currently 18 foster homes,
in the county, containing one
puppy, three dogs, five cats and
twvo kittens.
She also related that Kay, the


three-legged dog, had been adopted
into the perfect home.
Martin stressed the need for addi-
tional foster homes and asked
members for suggestions to pro-
MIote foster homes.
George Carswell advised that the
shelter needed a storage facility.
"A dry, safe place to put stuff," he
described it. Stored in the shed
would be records, cages, and the
like.
Carswell stressed the need to
have a shed donated that had a
good solid floor and a roof that did
not leak.
Members were reminded of the
Board of Directors meeting Feb. 7
and the general membership meet-
ing Feb. 21.
Both meetings are at 7 p.m. at the
shelter.

Childhood Obesity


Growing Problem


According to the latest govern-
rient figures, 48 percent of U.S.
children are considered overweight
or seriously overweight. The top
culprits remain lack of exercise and
poor dietary habits:
SAs a result, health problems once
associated mainly with adults are
.,becoming more common in
c'iildren, including asthma, type 2
diabetes, and hypertension.
: Maryana Winston, M.D., a pedia-
trician in Mahwah, New Jersey, sees
thie rise in childhood and adolescent
obesity as an epidemic. Fortunately,
lifestyle changes can help reverse
the risk factors of certain diseases.
She recommends beginning by
changing habits at home, away from.
the lure of vending machines and
where parents can serve as good role
models.


"Minimize sedentary activities by
being physically active as a family
and limiting TV or computer time,'
says Dr. Winston. Never put youi
child on a crash diet instead, adjus
eating and drinking habits by eating
home more often, decreasing por-
tion sizes and stocking up on
healthy foods," she adds.
Many people don't realize thai
each 12-ounce serving of a carbon-
ated, sweetened soft drink can con-
tain the equivalent of 10 teaspoons
of sugar. For this reason, the first
dietary modification Dr.Winston
suggests for all overweight children
is to remove juice and soda from
their diet; both are full of empty, un-
needed calories.
Instead, encourage consumption
of water and milk to provide the
necessary nutrients and hydration.

agreement with just 15 days' notice?
To a oid finding yourself suddenly
subject to new credit card terms, the
Florida Institute of Cernfied Public
Accountants (FICPA) recommends
that you carefully read the fine print
in the flyers periodically inserted in
credit card statements. Here are the
basic elements of -a credit card,
agreement:
IN TEREST RATE Credit card
companies typically disclose the in-
terest rate as an annual percentage
rate (APR). Some lenders charge a
fixed APR, while the interest rate on.
a variable rate rises and falls based-
on an index:. such as the prime rate..
Ob% ously, the lower-the APR, the
better, but be sure to carefully read
the fine print. Many cards charge
different APRs for purchases, cash
advances and balance transfers.
Other cards have a low "introduc-
tory rate" that rises dramatically af-
ter a fev. months.
GRACE PERIOD The grace pe-.
riod is the time between when you
charge a purchase and when you be-
gin to pay interest on that charge.
The standard is 25 days. but some
credit card companies are reducing
that number. If your credit card'
company does not offer a grace pe-
riod, you will pay interest on your
purchases, even if you pay your bal-
ance in full each month.
ANNLiAL FEES- Some credit card
ccmnpanies charge a flat annual fee
fo~r using their card. For consumers
who regularly carry a balance, a
card with an annual fee 'and a' low
interest rate may be better than a
card with no annual fee and a high
interest rate. Credit card holders
who pay. off their "balance each
month should look for a card with,
no annual fee, since the interest rate
doesn't matter.
LATE PAYMENT FEES Most
consumers know that credit card
companies assess penalties for late
payments. But you might not realize
that, with some cards, your payment
has to received not only by a certain
date, but also by certain time, such
as: 5:00 p.m. Or the close of the.
business day EST, in order to avoid


a late fee. Check your agreement to
see what date and time your pay-
ment is due and be sure to allow suf-
ficient mailing time.
OVER-THE-LINIT FEE- Many
credit card companies charge you a
fee'for exceeding your credit limit,
even in cases where they authorize,
the transaction.
CASH ADVANCE TERMS Tak-
iiig cash from your credit card can
be expensive. Credit card companies
typically charge a fee equal to 2 to 4
percent of the amount advanced.
Cash advances carry a higher inter-
est rate and there's no grace period.
You start accruing interest charges
as soon as you make the transaction.
To make matters worse, your pay-
ments are most likely applied to
your lower-interest balance first"
BALANCE TRANSFER FEES -Be-
fore transferring a balance to your
credit card, ask if there is a fee. A
balance transfer fee can often wipe
out any interest rate advantage.
CURRENCY CONVERSION-
Many companies are raising the
typical fee for overseas transactions.
Since this fee is embedded in the ex-
change, rate you're shown, you
might not even realize the charge..
Check the fine print in your credit
card agreement for your companies
policy.
CREDIT PURITY If you read
your credit card agreement, you may
find a clause stating that your credit
card company reserves the right to
raise your interest rate if it finds you
have been late paying other bills.
Yes, lenders'routinly scan credit re-
ports, and if your payment to one
company is late, you may find your
APR has increased on credit cards
total\ unrelated to the company that
received the late pa',ment
MILES, REBATES AND OTHER
PERKS Man.n credit cards allow
you to earn cash back, free airline
miles or ,other bonuses by using
your card. Don't sign up for a card
based on these perks alone High in-
terest rates and annual fees can end
up costing you more than the value
of the perks.
CPAs recommend that consumers
thoroughly read and fully inder-
stand the terms of their initial credit
card agreement

This has led many four-year institu-
tions to focus on strengthening cur-
ricula that have a more obvious pro-
fessional linkage. Another factor is
pushing that trend, as well.
"There is a strong push in many
states for higher education to be part
of economic development," says
Ferren. An increasing number of
trade schools and trade-oriented cur-
ricula at community colleges offer
training than the traditional four-
year college or university. In turn,
this trend is fueled by rapidly chang-
ing technologies and their effect on
business and the workplace.


Regardless of what career a stu-
dent chooses, however, Ferren says
employers still want the same quali-
ties in college graduates.
"In many cases they are saying
they want someone that can think,
well, write well, get along with oth-
ers, and recognize we're in a global'
economy."
These traits, she says, insure that
liberal arts will continue to have an,
enduring hold at colleges and uni-
versities, since a strong liberal arts:;
education ideally facilitates those

"But these were professional jobs -

Employers aren't the only ones
who can benefit from the results, he
said.
"This study provides a way for po-
tential employees to examine them-
selves and think about their feelings
about a job," he said. "This way, if
they fall into the leaver category,
they would know that 'Maybe I

said Terence R. Mitchell, Carlson

Azalea Circle Views Program


About Embelishing China


DEBBIE SNAPP
Staff Writer

The Azalea Garden Circle met
recently for lunch at the home of
Jayon Brown, and viewed a presen-
tation on how to embelish china
plates.

Illean Vorce presented a program
on how to affix purchased decals to
China plates, and how to fire them
to make very different decorated
plates.


The placement of the decals and
the care in smoothing them out,
made each plate unique to its owner.
Louise Chitwood gave a moving
devotion about the power of God,
and the ladies offered ill members
and their spouses up in prayer.
Refreshments of coffee and tea,
homemade almond cookies and mini
cheese cakes were served.
The business meeting began with
a bit of old business consisting of
the sale of tickets from the Florida
Federation of Garden Clubs
(FFGC.)

'Monticello Mutt' Of Week


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

The County Humane Society has
named Gill as their most adoptable
pet of the week.
Gill is a white neutered male
short haired "Monticello Mutt,"
with brown spots, and all of his
shots up to date.
Shelter Caretaker Cheryl Bautista
describes Gill as a very playful, en-
ergetic dog who likes to run.
SHe is very good with people and


children, and gets along well with
other dogs and animals, and is con-
sidered an indoor/outdoor animal.
Bautista said that Gill had been
adopted previously and was de-
scribed as being a wonderful ani-
mal but the woman had to return
him to the shelter when she discov-
ered that her child was allergic to
his fur.
Anyone wishing to adopt Gill or
any of the other many loving aniL-
mals at the shelter can call 342-

Founders Circle Hears

Program On Weather


DEBBIE SNAPP
Staff Writer
The Founders Garden Circle held
its January meeting and heard a
presentation by Preston Leftwich,
teacher of Meteorology at Florida
State University.
The meeting was held at the
Southwood Club in Tallahassee,
sponsored by Gail Carraway.
Members met at a prearranged lo-
cation and carpooled to the Club.
Leftwich narrated a film about the
affects of El Nino and El Nina. He
explained how these pressure sys-
tems affect the weather patterns and
the planting and growing of vegeta-
tion.
This program had been scheduled
for the Circle's September meeting
but, because of the hurricanes dur-
ing that time, it was rescheduled.
Members will participate in the
Florida Arbor Day Celebration and
planting of trees, Friday at the Oak--


field Cemetery, along with the City
of Monticello.
Members will plant and dedicate
two Oak trees and one Hickory tree
in memory of Gloria Brown's hus-
band Dr. Mayo Brown; past mem-
ber Jo Pippus' husband Dr. William
Pippus; and for the Founders Gar-
den Circle.
There was much discussion, and
some good ideas, about the land-
scaping of the Cemetery Circle Site.
The matter will be brought up at
next months meeting, for further
discussion.
Also discussed was the nomina-
tion of officers for the 2005-2006
year. Nominations are requested for
the February meeting.
The next meeting will be held
Thursday, Feb. 10. Members will be
notified about the location and the
program.

: The JCHS soccer team fell to a
4-8 season, 1-4 in district, after los-
ing two games last week.
STigers lost to Wakulla 8-0 in
what Coach Earline Knight said
?as a wonderfully played first half
ahd a lousy second half.
"We were able to hold them to
f6ur goals in the first half, but in
the second half, Wakulla scored
f6ur goals in succession, and within
the first five minutes the game was
over," said Knight.
"W6 didn't execute against Wa-
kulla. \\e got executed." she added.
; The Tigers had five shots, on
goal, Jason Kirkpatrick had 14
saves, and Alex Lingle, Jesus Ro-
sas, Jack Pitts and Tony Roberts
each had one save.
SIn a hard'fought game against
Chipley, the Tigers lost to Chipley,
21.
SKnight said she was extremely
proud of all of the guys, and both
teams played their hearts out until
the end.
She added that because of inju-
ries, the Tigers were playing with
ogly nine players against Chipley's


11, and were still able to hold them
from scoring additional goals. "We
executed," said Knight.
Rosas shot the goal assisted by
Keith Silcio, and the Tigers had 12
shots on goal.
Pitts had seven saves, and Kirk-
patrick, four. Knight said that be-
cause of a season-ending knee
injury, Pitts would be out for the
remainder of the.season.

He added that he and the other
coaches had the youth warming up


before actual match play by run-
ning without the ball, weaving and
leaping over cones.
The young athletes also partici-
pated in drills and reviewed previ-
ous lessons including dribbling,
tapping the ball, throwing passes, a
reviewing the lines on the field and
the comerflags. The children also
practiced proper throw-in tech-
niques.
Barker stated that good sports-
manship is stressed at all times.-
"There have been several occasions


fall or trip, and other players will
stop and help him up," Barker cited .
as an example of good sportsman- '
ship.
"The kids play, learn, run and
have a good time and they're stead- ''
ily improving," he added.
"I can see that returning players
from last year are remembering
where we left off and they're listen-
ing to my instructions, and that's
very important, he said.
He concluded that he and the
other coaches were extremely
pleased with the enthusiams for the
