Two Dogs Are Winners


in Derby


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer


.House's Bee Sting and Game
Maker on Friday won the first-place
and runner-up prizes respectively in
the 110th Open Derby Champion-
ship at Dixie Plantation.
House's Bee Sting is a female
pointer owned and handled by Joe
Don House. House's Bee Sting won
$3,000.
Game Maker, a male pointer
owned by Eddie Sholar and handled
by Tom Shenker, won $2,000.
A total of 60 dogs participated in
the derby, which is limited to 'dogs
two years of age and younger.
Garland Priddy, of Jackson, MI,
and Gene Brown, of Tallahassee,
judged the competition. Tom Word
reported the event for Field Trial, a
national publication that covers the
sport.
Brown said that six to eight of the
dogs in the competition had the po-
tential to be winners. But he said
House's Bee Sting and Game Maker
showed more independence and
greater range -- qualities that both
he and Priddy were looking for.
"When they.started the.cast, they
completed it," Brown said. "We
were looking for them to go out and
make a big cast. You don't want a
dog that's a yo-yo on a string, com-
ing back to the handler all the time."

The Department of Juvenile Jus-
tice (DJJ) has awarded the county a
$65,000 grant for the implementa-
tion of an intervention plan that
aims to keep at-risk youths out of
the juvenile justice system.
The plan -- titled "Jefferson
County: Disproportionate Minority
Contact' Intervention Plan" and re-
leased in. June 25, 2004 -- is based
on a study conducted here early last
yeat by FAMU.
SIt now remains for the Jefferson.
SCounty Juvenile Justice Council
(JJC) to.decide how the grant money
will be used to implement the plan.
The council, in fact, is scheduled
to hold a public meeting 7 p.m.
Thursday, Feb. 10, at the Teen Cen-
ter to solicit community input on
how the money should be distrib-
uted. All groups that provide after-
school services to children are urged
to attend, according to Gladys Ro-
ann, JJC chair.


Depending on the public input,
Roann says the council will decide
what after-school programs will be
funded and how much each will re-
ceive.
It's possible, meanwhile, that the
county may be eligible for another
$35,000 grant from the DJJ, depend-
ing on the completion of the appro-
priate paperwork. Roann encourages
any group interested in applying for
the latter funding to attend the meet-
ing and learn more about the re-
quirements.
The $65,000 grant is the result of
a study conducted by Florida A &
M University here and in two other
north Florida counties beginning last
January.
That study, which was funded by
a $100,000 DJJ grant, sought to
identify the reasons for the overrep-
resentation of minority children in
the juvenile justice system and to of-
fer community-based solutions to
the problem.
The fact of Disproportionate Mi-
nority Contact (DMC) is supposedly
well documented by the literature.


V.'~(~~Fl

It K.ik --, :


Indeed, all the empirical research
dating from the early 1900s report-
edly "supports the position that mi-
nority group members are over rep-
resented at every stage of the crimi-
nal justice process."
The debate over whether the legal
system consciously discriminates
against an individual based on race
is far from over, however. The ex-
perts' suggested explanations for the
causes .of the overrepresentation
range from the contention "that such
(statistical) numbers can be ex-
plained as a function of artifacts in
data collection" to the argument
"that (minority) juveniles are actu-
ally more involved in delinquent be-
havior."
"Yet others," notes the literature,
"maintain that the statistics simply
reflect an inherent bias in the juve-
nile justice system."
Meaning that nonwhite youths are
more likely to be processed through
the juvenile justice system, "not be-
cause of the nature or seriousness of
the offenses with which' they are
charged," but rather "because they
fit the stereotype that juvenile jus-
tice officials hold regarding what
constitutes a 'delinquent'."
The local DMC taskforce found,

Senior Staff Writer

True to his campaign pledge to
donate $5,000 of his annual salary
to local charitable organizations,
Commissioner Jerry Sutphin did just
that last week.
A candidate who actually keeps
his campaign promise. Imagine that.
In a brief ceremony on the court-
house steps Thursday morning, Sut-
phin, who represents District 3,
presented a $1,000 check to each of
five organizations.
The five were:


The Seniors Citizens Center,
with the money specifically ear-
marked for the Meals on Wheels
program, which provides meals to
elderly, homebound residents;
The Refuge House, which pro-
vides counseling and a safe haven to
victims of domestic violence and
sexual abuse;
The Humane Society, which
runs a local animal shelter and takes
in strays and other abandoned ani-
mals;
The Jefferson County Educa-
tional Foundation, which provides-
scholarships and other funding to
help promote higher educational


goals in the schools; and,
The Boys and Girls Club,
which offers various after-school
programs to children in the commu-
nity.
Sutphin replaced former longtime
Commissioner Gene Cooksey.
Sutphin is the first Republican to
be elected to the Jefferson County
Commission since the Reconstruc-
tion period that followed the Ameri-
can Civil War, or the War Between
the States, as it's popularly called in
the South.
Sutphin's campaign pledge calls
for him to donate $5,000 each of his
four years in office.

Arbor Day Celebrations Held


At JCHS, Oakfield Cemetery


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer
Arbor Day observences took
place here, Friday, and a variety of
trees were planted.
Groups participating in the obser-
vences include: the City of Monti-
cello, the Founders Circle, the
Florida Division of Forestry, Jeffer-
son County High School and the
4-H County Council.
Observances began at JCHS
where Mike Humphrey, Jefferson
County Forester, and Larry Morse,
Forest Area Supervisor, oversaw
the planting of an approximately.12
foot Live Oak tree, donated by the
Division of Forestry, in front of the


school.
The 4-H County Council members
were in attendance and listened in-
tently as Humphrey told the histroy
of Arbor Day, its origin and the im-
portance of planting trees.
Humphrey explained the proper
way to plant potted trees, about
measuring the depth of the soil in
the pot and burying the tree no
deeper than that depth in the ground.
The 4-H'ers then worked side by
side with the Forestry representa-
tives, as they planted the tree.
In the second ceremony of the
day, Founders Garden Circle mem-
bers met with city representatives in
Oakfield Cemetery to plant a total of
four trees; one for the city, two in
honor of members' loved ones, and


one for the circle.
Those being remembered included
circle member Gloria Brown's hus-
band Dr. Mayo Brown and the
other, for former member Jo Bippus,
in honor of her husband.
The trees planted included three
Shumard Oaks and one Hickory
tree, all donated by Simpson's Nurs-
ery.
The Proclamation, read by City
Council Member Gerrold Austin in
the absence of mayor Julie Conley
reads as follows:
*Whereas, Arbor Day is sym-
bolic of the early Conservation
Movement and has been observed in
the United States in various ways
for over a hundred years; and
whereas, the citizens of Monticello


have shown an increased interest in
planting trees because of the tre-
mendous role that such trees play in
furthering and improving the envi-
ronment; and
*Whereas, trees are responsible
for producing oxygen, for control-
ling floods, and for providing wild-
life habitat; and
*Whereas the City of Monticello
takes great pride in its variety and
number of trees, and the concern
that Arbor day should be com-
memorated by the planting of trees;
now,
*Therefore, I, Julie S. Conley,
Mayor of the city of Monticello, do
hereby proclaim January 21, 2005,
as Arbor day in the City of Monti-
cello, with the sincere conviction
that the enhancement of the beauty
of the City's landscape by the plant-
ing of trees furnishes not only an
economic value, but also human
value that is priceless and benefits
all.

Security Guard Pulls Man


From Burning Vehicle


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

A Missoula, MT man is alive to-
day thanks to local KOA resident
and Wackenhut Lieutenant, John
Carey, who has worked the many
rest areas along I-10 since the Brit-
ish tourist murder, in 1993.
While on duty at the Jefferson
County westbound rest stop located
at mile marker 234, about 10:30
p.m., witnessed a small explosion in
the rear of a large RV and saw
flames shooting out of the vehicle.
Charles Nalan was asleep in the
back of the RV, close to the engine
and fuel supply.
Carey said that he and an un-
known trucker began banging on the
side of the RV trying to wake Nalan
as flames quickly spread, but to no
avail.

Nalan had been pulling a Jeep

"The RV was fully engulfed upon
arrival," said Chief Larry Bates.
The RV was totally destroyed by the
fire."
Bates said it took some 1,500 gal-
lons of water and seven gallons of
foam to extinguish the flames.
At 2:13 a.m. firefighters had to re-

"We sent the engine back out there.

Effort Emphasizes

'Share Your Knowledge'


In a society that worships youth,
aging has never been "cool." But
look out, here come the boomers.
Throughout their lives, boomers
have left their mark on society-
around music, fashion, race, family,:
and gender equality. Now they're
poised to reinvent aging in America.
The first wave of boomers \ ill start
turning 60 next year.
A new report from the Harvard
School of .Public Health and Met-
Life Foundation, "Reinventing Ag-
ing: Baby Boomers and Civic En-
gagement," spotlights the positive
side of aging.
Thanks to the longevity
revolution, the average 60-year-old
can expect t6 live to 83; many will
continue well into their 90s.

According to the report, these bo-
nus ;:ears nestled between middle
age and old age from 6.0,, to.;80-
conriirute a ne'. stage of life. This
stage doesn't have a name yet and
doesn't have a defined purpose.
With their children grown, mil-
lions of older boomers will confront
the question "What do I want to.do
with the rest of my life?"
Many will remain in the work-
force, perhaps pursuing second ca-
reers or part-time work..
Others will retire and opt for
rjael and leisure. And some will
look for ways to channel their time,
energy, skills and experience to'help
their communities.
The report focuses attention on an
"unprecedented opportunity" on the
horizon to mobilize millions of-
older boomers as conununity 'olin-
teers.
According to the report, nearly
one-third of boomers say they ex-
pect to participate in: community,
service after retirement
The report calls for the creation of
new programs that build community
by integrating the old with the
young, transmining knowledge and


experience to future generations and
reinforcing the value of people of all
ages.
Studies have found that young
people in such ,programs show
measurable improvements in school
attendance, attitudes toward school
-and the future and attitudes toward
elders.
Adult volunteers report substantial
benefits to themselves: the satisfac-
tion :of sharing their experience.
feeling useful, and giving back to
the community. -':
,IAs.a follo\w-up to the report, the
.. Harvard School of Pubic Health and
MetLife Foundation are launching a
national media campaign to help re-
shape societal attitudes .toward
aging, change Hollywood's images
of aging, encourage' older boomers
to participate in civic life and pro-
mote healthy aging .
'* Initiall', the campaign will en-
courage older adults to consider vol-
unteering as a mentor to a young
person in their community.
'The annual National Mentoring.
Month volunteer recruitment drive
takes place every January.
It's spearheaded by -the Harvard
School of Public Health and,
NIENTORNational Mentonng Part-
nership. The campaign's message to'
. boomers is "Share What You.Know.
Mentor A Child." "
In a public service announcement
recorded for the mentoring cam-
paign, former. astronaut .and U.S.
Senator John Glenn-who rocketed
back into space at the ageof 7-put
it this way: "I don't think people.
need to retire and just sit on the
front porch and rock. They've.had a
lifetime of. experience. They can
pass that on. There's nothing like in-
spiring a young person in these ar-'
.eas of curiosity of their own, and a
mentor can do that. It's very impor-
tant today for young people to have
mentors in their lives. It's life expe-
rience and that's what the young
people lack.i"

brief glance now demands a con-
cerfed effort to make sure every-
thng is \here it should be,, the
numbers add up and nothing is
added on that doesn't belong. What
follows is.a brief guide to.making
sense out of your monthly phone
bill.
A residential phone bill has three
components: local service charges,,
long distance service charges and
taxes. ,
1 The local service portion may
include some or all, of the following:
FCC Local Number Portability'
Line Charge (also known as a Num-
ber Portability Fee): Local phone
companies were permitted, but not
required, to assess a fee to cover the
costs associated with allowing con-
sumers to retain their phone number


when switching carriers. The right
to charge the fee was time-limited
by the Federal Communications
Commission, and some 'consumers
have seen this charge disappear
from their bills.
Residential Line Charge: This is
the monthly local service charge. In
most cases it is a flat rate fee, al-
though sometimes it may appear as
a flat rate plus a usage charge. This
is what the local phone company is.
paid for providing service.
Emergency 911 Charge: This fee'
is assessed and paid to the city or
county providing the consumer with
emergency 911 service.
FCC Network Access Charge
(sometimes called a Subscriber Line
,Charge or an Interstate Access Sur-
charge): The FCC allows local
,phone companies to be compensated
.for the use of their local network in
completing long distance calls. This
fee goes to the local companies, not
to the FCC.

Simple Resumes Work Best


BY BONNIE ROBERTS ERICK-
SON
Radford (VA.) University
An employer sits down to begin
the painstaking chore of sifting
through dozens of resumes for that
one coveted position in the


company. Page lengths vary, and
type sizes and styles take off in sev-
eral directions. The employer's time
is valuable. They want to know edu-
cational and previous employment
information and skills.
Don Samson, a professor of Eng-
lish at Radford University, says it is


important to focus on content: there
is no substitute for relevant educa-
tion and experience. A common
mistake, Samson says, is to dress up
the appearance of the resume in an
effort to offset insufficient educa-
tional and work experience.
The most common mistakes in re-


sumes include using uncommon
type styles and fonts, inflating pre-
vious work experience, lacking
enough detail to fill a page and as-
suming that submitting a resume is
enough to pique the interest of the

methods of presentation can make a
huge impact in a resume screener.
For example, professionals in the
field of printing and publishing sug-
gest never folding a laser-printed
sheet on a line of test. The ink is
likely to flake or smear, giving the
appearance of a hastily done
resume. If the resume has been
printed on a press, let the ink dry be-
fore folding and mailing.
The following are additional tips
for effective resumes.
Use Times New Roman 12 point
type and print the resume on 20#
bond paper. The resume needs to
convey a professional image.
Don't revise your resume for dif-
ferent positions within the same:,
field. Samson says, "Your resume
describes you, and you don't change
you to fit a particular job that you
are interested in." Samson also ad-
vises submitting a letter of applica-
tion that shows how the candidate
could meet specific requirements
and duties. "Tailor your letter of ap-
plication to the position, not your re-
sume," he says.
Age, height, weight, health, mari-
tal status, nationality and race


should not be included.
Describe education and work ex-
perience in reverse chronological or-
der. Samson says, "What you have
done most recently is most import
tant." Describe educational back-
ground first if the applicant is
completing a degree that qualifies
them for the job.
Use action verbs. Say "tested" in-
stead "responsible for testing."
Be simple and straightforward. If
you served food, say you served
food.
Career objectives should only be
included if they would really help.
"If you state a career objective
broad enough for most positions you
apply for, it will be too general,"
Samson says. "Most experts recom-
mend using an objective only if you
are looking for work in a different
field from your present one."
Most importantly, proofread and
proofread again. Typographical and
grammatical errors do a lot of dam-
age. Samson stresses, "Make no
mistakes. You want to suggest that
you can do. an important job well."
Before submitting the resume and
letter of application, ask an experi-
enced proofreader to review them.

Staff Writer

Brenda Sorensen has been named
Kiwanian Governor-Elect 2005-06,
the first woman from the local club
to hold the office, Spokesman Bill
Gunnels reports.
In other club news, Gunnels said
that every week, two representative
of the Jefferson County High
School Key Club attend Kiwanis
meetings to report on Key Club ac-
tivities.
"They are very active and the
Key Club is a great organization
for students to belong to," said
Gunnells. The Key Club \olunieers
at the Humane Society serves at
Opera House functions, among
other activities.
Siblings- of the Key Club, the
Builders Club at Howard Middle


school and the K Kids at Jefferson
Elementary School, are expected
to be organized soon.
Gunnells said that members have
also approached Aucilla Christian
Academy officials to begin the
three programs there. "We're mak-
ing headway," said Gunnels. "Our
Kiwanis will be the first Florida
Kiwanis District to have all three
clubs for students."
He relates that when President
Doug Wainright was sworn in, his
goal was to add 10 new members to
the organization before the end of
his term, as of the end of last year,
six new members joined.

shots and lay-ups close to the bas-
ket."
Peters led the score for the Warri-
ors with seven points, three re-
bounds; Scarberry, six points, nine
rebounds; Greene, also six points,

pearing in the beams of her head-
lights, she saw a dog with it's paw
hung on the fence.
"She tried to climb the fence and
the barbed wire got caught deep in
her paw," said Raab.
She said she tried to lift the dog
enough to get it out of the wire, but
she was unable to do so. "I finally.


THIS Walker Hound is in a foster home, recovering from
her injuries. She will be available for adoption once she is
fully recovered.


On the night of Tuesday, Jan. 11,
Lamont resident Jennifer Raab and
her husband heard constant, almost
painful howling that continued
throughout the night.
S"My husband and I thought it was
coyotes," said Raab. "The more it
went on, the more I began to think
there might be a dog caught some-
where."
At 3 a.m., she got in her car and
drove down the road, searching for
the cause of the howling. Soon, ap-


had to get some wire cutters and cut
a couple of pieces of the wire to get
her loose," she added.

Raab was able to release the ani-
mal and get her to the ground. She
said she thought the dog could make
it home on three legs, so she re-
turned to her home.

"It was eating me up," said Raab.
"I was crying, I felt like I hadn't
done enough just by freeing her, I
prayed she would be OK."

At 8 a.m., Raab discovered the
dog was still where she had left her.
"I knew if she didn't move, she
would die, so I tried to get a hold of
someone to help," she said.
She called Tina Ames of the hu-
mane Society and described the
situation.
"I could never let any animal just
lay there and die," said Raab.
Ames found the dog, a Walker
Hound, lying on the other side of
the fence. She said she luckily
found an area where she could
squeeze under the fence and she
took a blanket with her to carry the
dog.
After crawling through heavy
brush and brambles, Ames was able
to get the dog on the blanket.
"There was a spot right in front of
the dog that I hadn't even noticed
before, where I could get under the
fence," said Ames.
She cut away the blackberry vines,
crawled under the fence and
dragged the dog on the blanket un-
der the fence.
When Ames was able to examine
the dog better, she noticed that there
Was still part of the fence attached
around her front leg.
"She was very weak and appears.
she may have been in shock," said
Ames. "She was severely malnour-
ished and had mange in addition to
her leg injury.
The hound couldn't walk, so Ames
had to carry her back to her vehicle
and on to Animal Medical Clinic for
examination. Dr. Purvis has since
diagnosed the dog with some nerve
damage to her paw.
Ames is' providing a foster
'home for the dog, which is reported
resting comfortably.
"She is incredibly sweet and gen-
tle and is already showing signs of
improvement," .said Ames. "She is'
expected to make an almost com-
plete recovery."
Ames noted that the vet bills for
the dogs care have been very high
and donations for .her care are
sought.
